audio file from
1 All of the earth, it is the LORD's,
       its fu-ullness grea-eat and small,
   the world and its inhabitants,
       for He created all.
2 He founded it upon the seas
       and laid its foundations
   upon the rivers, on the floods,
       to be His creation.
3 Who shall ascend to the Lord's hill,
        the mountain of the Lord?
    And who within His holy place
        shall rise as conqueror?
4 The clean of hands and pure of heart,
       who unto vanity,
   He has not lifted up My soul,
       nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall lift up the LORD's blessing
   and a-also ri-ighteousness
from the God of His salvation
    that others He may bless.
6 This One a generation sought,
     inquiring after Him,
Who seeks your face, house of Jacob,
   to be in His kingdom.

7 Lift up your heads, O gates, and be
     lifte-ed up a-ancient doors.
And King of glory shall come in
     where no man's gone before.
8 The King of glo-ory, who is this?
   The LORD strong and a Man,
the LORD a Man mighty in war
  to rule o'er earth and heav'n.

 9  Lift up your heads, O gates, and lift
         upwa-ard the a-ancient doors,
     and King of glory shall come in
         where no man's gone before.
10 Who is He, thi-is King of glory?
        The LORD of hosts is He.
     'Tis He who is King of glory,
         God-Man eternally.

Acts 3:25  You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God covenanted with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ``And in your seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.''  26  To you first, God, having raised up His Servant, has sent Him to  bless you in turning each of you away from your wicked deeds.
Eph 1:2  Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual  blessing  in the heavenlies in Christ,  4  Even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world to be holy and without blemish before Him in love,  5  Predestinating us unto sonship through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,  6  To the praise of the glory of His grace, with which He graced us in the Beloved;  7  In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of offenses, according to the riches of His grace,  8  Which He caused to abound to us in all wisdom and prudence,  9  Making known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Himself,  10  Unto the economy of the fullness of the times, to head up all things in Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth, in Him;  11  In whom also we were designated as an inheritance, having been predestinated according to the purpose of the One who works all things according to the counsel of His will,  12  That we would be to the praise of His glory who have first hoped in Christ.
Gal 3:13  Christ has redeemed us out of the curse of the law, having become a curse on our behalf; because it is written, ``Cursed is every one hanging on a tree'';  14  In order that the  blessing  of Abraham might come to the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Rev 5:12  Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb who has been slain to receive the power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and  blessing .  13  And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea and all things in them, I heard saying, To Him who sits upon the throne and to the Lamb be the  blessing  and the honor and the glory and the might forever and ever.
Matt 5:20  For I say to you that unless your  righteousness  surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall by no means enter into the kingdom of the heavens.  21  You have heard that it was said to the ancients, ``You shall not murder, and whoever murders shall be liable to the judgment.''  22  But I say to you that every one who is angry with his brother shall be liable to the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, Raca, shall be liable to the judgment of the Sanhedrin; and whoever says, Moreh, shall be liable to the Gehenna of fire.
Rom 3:21  But now, apart from the law, the  righteousness  of God has been manifested, witness being borne to it by the Law and the Prophets;  22  Even the  righteousness  of God through the faith of Jesus Christ to all those who believe, for there is no distinction;  23  For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,  24  Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;  25  Whom God set forth as a propitiation place through faith in His blood, for the demonstrating of His  righteousness , in that in His forbearance God passed over the sins that had previously occurred,  26  With a view to the demonstrating of His  righteousness  in the present time, so that He might be righteous and the One who justifies him who is of the faith of Jesus.
4:2  For if Abraham was justified out of works, he has something to boast in, but not before God.  3  For what does the Scripture say? ``And Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness.''  4  Now to the one who works, his wages are not accounted according to grace, but according to what is due.  5  But to the one who does not work, but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted as righteousness.  6  Even as David also speaks  blessing  on the man to whom God accounts righteousness apart from works:  7  ``Blessed are they whose lawlessnesses have been forgiven, and whose sins have been covered over.  8  Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall by no means account sin.''  9  Is this  blessing  then upon the circumcision only, or also upon the uncircumcision? For we say, Faith was accounted to Abraham as righteousness
5:17  For if by the offense of the one death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of  righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
10:4  For Christ is the end of the law unto  righteousness  to everyone who believes.
2 Cor 5:21  Him who did not know sin He made sin on our behalf that we might become the  righteousness  of God in Him.
Phil 3:9  And be found in Him, not having my own  righteousness  which is out of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the  righteousness  which is out of God and based on faith,
Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
11:6  And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7  Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
Isa 41:21 Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. 22  Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.
Hag 2:7  And I will shake all nations, and the Desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.
John 14:2  In My Father's house are many abodes; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.  3  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I am coming again and will receive you to Myself, so that where I am you also may be.  4  And where I am going you know the way.  5  Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going; how can we know the way?  6  Jesus said to him, I am the way and the reality and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.
Eph 2:18 For through Him we both have  access  in one Spirit unto the Father.
Heb 10:19  Having therefore, brothers, boldness for entering the Holy of Holies in the blood of Jesus,  20  Which entrance He initiated for us as a  new   and   living   way  through the veil, that is, His flesh,
Ps 118:18 Jah sore chastened Me,
      but unto death, He's not given Me.
19    Open to Me
     gates of the just.
          I'll enter through them.
     I will thank Jah.
20    This is the gate
         that leads to the LORD.
         Righteous enter it.
21     I will praise You
     for You heard me,
         and You have become
         to me salvation.
22 This, the Stone which the builders refused
      is become Head of gentiles and Jews.
23    This came from the
     Lord. Wonderful
          it is in our eyes.
24         This is the day,
         that the Lord did it,
     We will rejoice,
         and be glad in it,
Jn 10:1  Truly, truly, I say to you, He who does not enter through the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up from somewhere else, he is a thief and a robber;  2  But he who enters through the door is the shepherd of the sheep.  3  To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.  4  When he puts forth all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.  5  But they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.  6  This parable Jesus spoke to them, but they did not know what those things meant that He spoke to them.  7  Jesus therefore said to them again, Truly, truly, I say to you that I am the door of the sheep.  8  All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.  9  I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved and shall go in and go out and shall find pasture.  10  The thief does not come except to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and may have it abundantly.  11  I am the good Shepherd; the good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
Isa 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God-Man, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
10:21  The remnant shall return, [even] the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God-Man.
Zep 3:17  The LORD thy God in the midst of thee [is] a mighty Man; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he  will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
De 10:17  for the LORD your God—He is God of the gods, and Lord of the lords; God, the great, the mighty Man, and the fearful; who accepteth not persons, nor taketh a bribe;
Ne 9:32  ‘And now, O our God—God, the great, the mighty Man, and the fearful, keeping the covenant and the kindness—let not all the travail that hath found us be little before Thee, for our kings, for our heads, and for our priests, and for our prophets, and for our fathers, and for all Thy people, from the days of the kings of Asshur unto this day;
Jer 32:18  Doing kindness to thousands, and recompensing iniquity of fathers into the bosom of their sons after  them; God, the great mighty God-Man, Lord of Hosts is His name,
Ps 103:20  Bless the Lord, ye His messengers, mighty men of power doing His word, To hearken to the voice of His Word.
Psalm 78:6 That the generation to come might know them, the children that should be born; that they might rise up and tell them to their children, (Psa 78:6 DBY)
