And declared to be the Son of  God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus  Christ:
To all that be in Rome, beloved of  God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from  God our Father, and the Lord Jesus  Christ.
First, I thank my  God through Jesus  Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.   Romans 1:1-8 


For I am not ashamed of the gospel of  Christ: for it is the power of  God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.   Romans 1:16 


In the day when  God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus  Christ according to my gospel.   Romans 2:16 


Even the righteousness of  God which is by faith of Jesus  Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of  God;
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in  Christ Jesus:
Whom  God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his  blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of  God;
To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.   Romans 3:22-26 


Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with  God through our Lord Jesus  Christ:
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of  God.   Romans 5:1, 2 


For when we were yet without strength, in due time  Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
But  God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,  Christ died for us.   Romans 5:6-8 


And not only so, but we also joy in  God through our Lord Jesus  Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.   Romans 5:11 


But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of  God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus  Christ, hath abounded unto many.
And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus  Christ.)
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.   Romans 5:15-18 


That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus  Christ our Lord.   Romans 5:21 


Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus  Christ were baptized into his death?
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as  Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.   Romans 6:3, 4 


Now if we be dead with  Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
Knowing that  Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto  God.
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto  God through Jesus  Christ our Lord.   Romans 6:8-11 


For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of  God is eternal life through Jesus  Christ our Lord.   Romans 6:23 


Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of  Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto  God.   Romans 7:4 


I thank  God through Jesus  Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of  God; but with the  flesh the law of sin.   Romans 7:25 


There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in  Christ Jesus, who walk not after the  flesh, but after the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in  Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.   Romans 8:1, 2 


But ye are not in the  flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of  God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of  Christ, he is none of his.
And if  Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up  Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.   Romans 8:9-11 


And if children, then heirs; heirs of  God, and joint-heirs with  Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.   Romans 8:17 


Who is he that condemneth? It is  Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of  God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of  Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or  sword?
As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.   Romans 8:34-36 


Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of  God, which is in  Christ Jesus our Lord.   Romans 8:39 


I say the truth in  Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,
That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my  heart.
For I could wish that myself were accursed from  Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the  flesh:
Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of  God, and the promises;
Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the  flesh  Christ came, who is over all,  God blessed for ever. Amen.   Romans 9:1-5 


For  Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine  heart, Who shall ascend into  heaven? (that is, to bring  Christ down from above:)
Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up  Christ again from the dead.)
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy  heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine  heart that  God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.   Romans 10:4-9 


So we, being many, are one body in  Christ, and every one members one of another.   Romans 12:5 


But put ye on the Lord Jesus  Christ, and make not provision for the  flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.   Romans 13:14 


For to this end  Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of  Christ.   Romans 14:9, 10 


But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom  Christ died.   Romans 14:15 


For he that in these things serveth  Christ is acceptable to  God, and approved of men.   Romans 14:18 


For even  Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Now the  God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to  Christ Jesus:
That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify  God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus  Christ.
Wherefore receive ye one another, as  Christ also received us to the glory of  God.
Now I say that Jesus  Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of  God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:
And that the Gentiles might glorify  God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.   Romans 15:3-9 


That I should be the minister of Jesus  Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of  God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.
I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus  Christ in those things which pertain to  God.
For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which  Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,
Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of  God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of  Christ.
Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where  Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man's foundation:
But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand.   Romans 15:16-21 


And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of  Christ.
Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to  God for me;
That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints;
That I may come unto you with joy by the will of  God, and may with you be refreshed.   Romans 15:29-32 


Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in  Christ Jesus:
Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles.
Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my well-beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto  Christ.

Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellow-prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in  Christ before me.

Salute Apelles approved in  Christ. Salute them which are of Aristobulus' household.   Romans 16:3-10 


Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of  Christ salute you.
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus  Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the  hearts of the simple.
For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning  evil.
And the  God of peace shall bruise  Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus  Christ be with you. Amen.   Romans 16:16-20

But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting  God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
To  God only wise, be glory through Jesus  Christ for ever. Amen.   Romans 16:24-27 


Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus  Christ through the will of  God, and Sosthenes our brother,
Unto the church of  God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in  Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus  Christ our Lord, both their's and our's:
Grace be unto you, and peace, from  God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus  Christ.
I thank my  God always on your behalf, for the grace of  God which is given you by Jesus  Christ;
That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
Even as the testimony of  Christ was confirmed in you:
So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus  Christ:
Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus  Christ.
 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus  Christ our Lord.
Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus  Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of  Christ.
Is  Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?
I thank  God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;
Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.
And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.
For  Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of  Christ should be made of none effect.   1 Corinthians 1:1-17 


But we preach  Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks,  Christ the power of  God, and the wisdom of  God.   1 Corinthians 1:23, 24 


But of him are ye in  Christ Jesus, who of  God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.   1 Corinthians 1:30, 31 


For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus  Christ, and him crucified.   1 Corinthians 2:2 


For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of  Christ.   1 Corinthians 2:16 


And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in  Christ.   1 Corinthians 3:1 


For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus  Christ.   1 Corinthians 3:11 


And ye are Christ's; and  Christ is God's.   1 Corinthians 3:23 


Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of  Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of  God.   1 Corinthians 4:1 


We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in  Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.   1 Corinthians 4:10 


For though ye have ten thousand instructers in  Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in  Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in  Christ, as I teach every where in every church.   1 Corinthians 4:15-17 


In the name of our Lord Jesus  Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus  Christ,
To deliver such an one unto  Satan for the destruction of the  flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even  Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened  bread of sincerity and truth.   1 Corinthians 5:4-8 


Know ye not that your bodies are the members of  Christ? shall I then take the members of  Christ, and make them the members of an harlot?  God forbid.   1 Corinthians 6:15 


For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord's freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ's servant.   1 Corinthians 7:22 


But to us there is but one  God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus  Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.   1 Corinthians 8:6 


And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom  Christ died?
But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against  Christ.   1 Corinthians 8:11, 12 


Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus  Christ our Lord? are not ye my work in the Lord?
If I be not an apostle unto others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord.   1 Corinthians 9:1, 2 


If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of  Christ.   1 Corinthians 9:12 


What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of  Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.   1 Corinthians 9:18 


To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to  God, but under the law to  Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.   1 Corinthians 9:21 


And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was  Christ.   1 Corinthians 10:4 


Neither let us tempt  Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.   1 Corinthians 10:9 


The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the  blood of  Christ? The  bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of  Christ?
For we being many are one  bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one  bread.   1 Corinthians 10:16, 17 


Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of  Christ.
Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is  Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of  Christ is  God.   1 Corinthians 11:1-3 


For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is  Christ.   1 Corinthians 12:12 


Now ye are the body of  Christ, and members in particular.   1 Corinthians 12:27 


For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that  Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.   1 Corinthians 15:3-6 


Now if  Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is  Christ not risen:
And if  Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Yea, and we are found false witnesses of  God; because we have testified of  God that he raised up  Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
For if the dead rise not, then is not  Christ raised:
And if  Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
Then they also which are fallen asleep in  Christ are perished.
If in this life only we have hope in  Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
But now is  Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so in  Christ shall all be made alive.
But every man in his own order:  Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.   1 Corinthians 15:12-23 


I protest by your rejoicing which I have in  Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.   1 Corinthians 15:31 


But thanks be to  God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus  Christ.   1 Corinthians 15:57 


If any man love not the Lord Jesus  Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
The grace of our Lord Jesus  Christ be with you.
My love be with you all in  Christ Jesus. Amen.   1 Corinthians 16:22-24 


Paul, an apostle of Jesus  Christ by the will of  God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of  God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:
Grace be to you and peace from  God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus  Christ.
Blessed be  God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus  Christ, the Father of mercies, and the  God of all comfort;
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of  God.
For as the sufferings of  Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by  Christ.   2 Corinthians 1:1-5 


For the Son of  God, Jesus  Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea.
For all the promises of  God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of  God by us.
Now he which stablisheth us with you in  Christ, and hath anointed us, is  God;
Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our  hearts.   2 Corinthians 1:19-22 


To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of  Christ;
Lest  Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,
I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from thence into Macedonia.
Now thanks be unto  God, which always causeth us to triumph in  Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
For we are unto  God a sweet savour of  Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?
For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of  God: but as of sincerity, but as of  God, in the sight of  God speak we in  Christ.   2 Corinthians 2:10-17 


Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of  Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living  God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the  heart.
And such trust have we through  Christ to God-ward:
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of  God;
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.   2 Corinthians 3:3-6 


But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in  Christ.   2 Corinthians 3:14 


In whom the  god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of  Christ, who is the image of  God, should shine unto them.
For we preach not ourselves, but  Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
For  God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our  hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of  God in the face of Jesus  Christ.   2 Corinthians 4:4-6 


For we must all appear before the judgment seat of  Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.   2 Corinthians 5:10 


For the love of  Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the  flesh: yea, though we have known  Christ after the  flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
Therefore if any man be in  Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
And all things are of  God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus  Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
To wit, that  God was in  Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
Now then we are ambassadors for  Christ, as though  God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to  God.   2 Corinthians 5:14-20 


And what concord hath  Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
And what agreement hath the temple of  God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living  God; as  God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their  God, and they shall be my people.   2 Corinthians 6:15, 16 


For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus  Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.   2 Corinthians 8:9 


Whether any do enquire of Titus, he is my partner and fellowhelper concerning you: or our brethren be enquired of, they are the messengers of the churches, and the glory of  Christ.   2 Corinthians 8:23 


Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify  God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of  Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men;
And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of  God in you.   2 Corinthians 9:13, 14 


Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of  Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you:
But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the  flesh.   2 Corinthians 10:1, 2 


Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of  God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of  Christ;
And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.   2 Corinthians 10:5-7 


For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of  Christ:
Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men's labours; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly,
To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man's line of things made ready to our hand.   2 Corinthians 10:14-16 


For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to  Christ.
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in  Christ.   2 Corinthians 11:2, 3 


As the truth of  Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia.   2 Corinthians 11:10 


For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of  Christ.   2 Corinthians 11:13 


Are they ministers of  Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.   2 Corinthians 11:23 


The  God and Father of our Lord Jesus  Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.   2 Corinthians 11:31 


I knew a man in  Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell:  God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third  heaven.   2 Corinthians 12:2 


And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of  Christ may rest upon me.
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.   2 Corinthians 12:9, 10 


Again, think ye that we excuse ourselves unto you? we speak before  God in  Christ: but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.   2 Corinthians 12:19 


Since ye seek a proof of  Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.
For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of  God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of  God toward you.
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus  Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.   2 Corinthians 13:3-6 


The grace of the Lord Jesus  Christ, and the love of  God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.   2 Corinthians 13:14 


Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus  Christ, and  God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)
And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:
Grace be to you and peace from  God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus  Christ,
Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present  evil world, according to the will of  God and our Father:
To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of  Christ unto another gospel:
Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of  Christ.   Galatians 1:1-7 


For do I now persuade men, or  God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of  Christ.
But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus  Christ.   Galatians 1:10-12 


And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in  Christ:
But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.   Galatians 1:22, 23 


And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in  Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:
To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.   Galatians 2:4, 5 


Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus  Christ, even we have believed in Jesus  Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of  Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no  flesh be justified.
But if, while we seek to be justified by  Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore  Christ the minister of sin?  God forbid.   Galatians 2:16, 17 


I am crucified with  Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but  Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the  flesh I live by the faith of the Son of  God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
I do not frustrate the grace of  God: for if righteousness come by the law, then  Christ is dead in vain.   Galatians 2:20, 21 


O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus  Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the  flesh?
Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.   Galatians 3:1-4 


 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a  tree:
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus  Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is  Christ.
And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of  God in  Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.   Galatians 3:13-17 


But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus  Christ might be given to them that believe.
But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto  Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
For ye are all the children of  God by faith in  Christ Jesus.
For as many of you as have been baptized into  Christ have put on  Christ.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in  Christ Jesus.
And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.   Galatians 3:22-29 


Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of  God through  Christ.   Galatians 4:7 


And my temptation which was in my  flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of  God, even as  Christ Jesus.   Galatians 4:14 


My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until  Christ be formed in you,
I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you.   Galatians 4:19, 20 


Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith  Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised,  Christ shall profit you nothing.
For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
For in Jesus  Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.   Galatians 5:1-6 


And they that are Christ's have crucified the  flesh with the affections and lusts.   Galatians 5:24 


Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of  Christ.   Galatians 6:2 


As many as desire to make a fair shew in the  flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of  Christ.
For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your  flesh.
But  God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus  Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
For in  Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.   Galatians 6:12-15 


Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus  Christ be with your spirit. Amen.   Galatians 6:18 


Paul, an apostle of Jesus  Christ by the will of  God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in  Christ Jesus:
Grace be to you, and peace, from  God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus  Christ.
Blessed be the  God and Father of our Lord Jesus  Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in  Christ:
According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus  Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.   Ephesians 1:1-6 


That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in  Christ, both which are in  heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in  Christ.   Ephesians 1:10-12 


That the  God of our Lord Jesus  Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Which he wrought in  Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.   Ephesians 1:17-23 


Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with  Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in  Christ Jesus:
That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through  Christ Jesus.   Ephesians 2:5-7 


For we are his workmanship, created in  Christ Jesus unto good works, which  God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the  flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the  flesh made by hands;
That at that time ye were without  Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without  God in the world:
But now in  Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the  blood of  Christ.   Ephesians 2:10-13 


And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus  Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of  God through the Spirit.   Ephesians 2:20-22 


For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus  Christ for you Gentiles,
If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of  God which is given me to you-ward:
How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of  Christ)
Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in  Christ by the gospel:
Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of  God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.
Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of  Christ;
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in  God, who created all things by Jesus  Christ:
To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of  God,
According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in  Christ Jesus our Lord:
In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus  Christ,
Of whom the whole family in  heaven and earth is named,
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
That  Christ may dwell in your  hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of  Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of  God.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Unto him be glory in the church by  Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.   Ephesians 3:1-21 


But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of  Christ.   Ephesians 4:7 


For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of  Christ:
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of  God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of  Christ:
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even  Christ:
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.   Ephesians 4:12-16 


But ye have not so learned  Christ;
If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
And that ye put on the new man, which after  God is created in righteousness and true holiness.   Ephesians 4:20-24 


And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as  God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.   Ephesians 4:32 


And walk in love, as  Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to  God for a sweetsmelling savour.   Ephesians 5:2 


For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of  Christ and of  God.   Ephesians 5:5 


Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and  Christ shall give thee light.   Ephesians 5:14 


Giving thanks always for all things unto  God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus  Christ;
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of  God.
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as  Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Therefore as the church is subject unto  Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Husbands, love your wives, even as  Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of  water by the word,
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.   Ephesians 5:20-27 


This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning  Christ and the church.   Ephesians 5:32 


Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the  flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your  heart, as unto  Christ;
Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of  Christ, doing the will of  God from the  heart;
With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.   Ephesians 6:5-8 


Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from  God the Father and the Lord Jesus  Christ.
Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus  Christ in sincerity. Amen.   Ephesians 6:23, 24 


Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus  Christ, to all the saints in  Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:
Grace be unto you, and peace, from  God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus  Christ.   Philippians 1:1, 2 


Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus  Christ:
Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my  heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.
For  God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus  Christ.
And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of  Christ.
Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus  Christ, unto the glory and praise of  God.
But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;
So that my bonds in  Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places;
And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.
Some indeed preach  Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:
The one preach  Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.
What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth,  Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus  Christ,
According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also  Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.
For to me to live is  Christ, and to die is gain.
But if I live in the  flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.
For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with  Christ; which is far better:
Nevertheless to abide in the  flesh is more needful for you.
And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;
That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus  Christ for me by my coming to you again.
Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of  Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of  God.
For unto you it is given in the behalf of  Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;
Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.   Philippians 1:6-30 


If there be therefore any consolation in  Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.   Philippians 2:1, 2 


Let this mind be in you, which was also in  Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of  God, thought it not robbery to be equal with  God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.   Philippians 2:5-8 


And that every tongue should confess that Jesus  Christ is Lord, to the glory of  God the Father.   Philippians 2:11 


Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of  Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.   Philippians 2:16 


For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.   Philippians 2:21 


Because for the work of  Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.   Philippians 2:30 


For we are the circumcision, which worship  God in the spirit, and rejoice in  Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the  flesh.   Philippians 3:3 


But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for  Christ.
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of  Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but  dung, that I may win  Christ,
And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of  Christ, the righteousness which is of  God by faith:
That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of  Christ Jesus.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of  God in  Christ Jesus.   Philippians 3:7-14 


(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of  Christ:
Whose end is destruction, whose  God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
For our conversation is in  heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus  Christ:
Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.   Philippians 3:18-21 


And the peace of  God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your  hearts and minds through  Christ Jesus.   Philippians 4:7 


I can do all things through  Christ which strengtheneth me.   Philippians 4:13 


But my  God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by  Christ Jesus.
Now unto  God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Salute every saint in  Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you.
All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.
The grace of our Lord Jesus  Christ be with you all. Amen.   Philippians 4:19-23 


Paul, an apostle of Jesus  Christ by the will of  God, and Timotheus our brother,
To the saints and faithful brethren in  Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from  God our Father and the Lord Jesus  Christ.
We give thanks to  God and the Father of our Lord Jesus  Christ, praying always for you,
Since we heard of your faith in  Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,
For the hope which is laid up for you in  heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;
Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of  God in truth:
As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of  Christ;
Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.   Colossians 1:1-8 


Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of  Christ in my  flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:
Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of  God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of  God;
Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
To whom  God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is  Christ in you, the hope of glory:
Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in  Christ Jesus:
Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.   Colossians 1:24-29 


That their  hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of  God, and of the Father, and of  Christ;
In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
For though I be absent in the  flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in  Christ.
As ye have therefore received  Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after  Christ.   Colossians 2:2-8 


In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the  flesh by the circumcision of  Christ:
Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of  God, who hath raised him from the dead.   Colossians 2:11, 12 


Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of  Christ.   Colossians 2:17 


Wherefore if ye be dead with  Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
(Touch not; taste not; handle not;
Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the  flesh.   Colossians 2:20-23 


If ye then be risen with  Christ, seek those things which are above, where  Christ sitteth on the right hand of  God.
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with  Christ in  God.
When  Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.   Colossians 3:1-4 


Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but  Christ is all, and in all.
Put on therefore, as the elect of  God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as  Christ forgave you, so also do ye.   Colossians 3:11-13 


Let the word of  Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your  hearts to the Lord.   Colossians 3:16 


Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord  Christ.   Colossians 3:24 


Withal praying also for us, that  God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of  Christ, for which I am also in bonds:
That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.   Colossians 4:3, 4 


Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of  Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of  God.   Colossians 4:12 


Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in  God the Father and in the Lord Jesus  Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from  God our Father, and the Lord Jesus  Christ.
We give thanks to  God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus  Christ, in the sight of  God and our Father;
Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of  God.   1 Thessalonians 1:1-4 


Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of  Christ.   1 Thessalonians 2:6 


For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of  God which in Judaea are in  Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:
Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not  God, and are contrary to all men:
Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.   1 Thessalonians 2:14-16 


For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus  Christ at his coming?
For ye are our glory and joy.   1 Thessalonians 2:19, 20 


And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of  God, and our fellowlabourer in the gospel of  Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith:
That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.   1 Thessalonians 3:2, 3 


Now  God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus  Christ, direct our way unto you.
And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:
To the end he may stablish your  hearts unblameable in holiness before  God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus  Christ with all his saints.   1 Thessalonians 3:11-13 


For the Lord himself shall descend from  heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of  God: and the dead in  Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.   1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17 


For  God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus  Christ,
Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.   1 Thessalonians 5:9, 10 


In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of  God in  Christ Jesus concerning you.   1 Thessalonians 5:18 


And the very  God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray  God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus  Christ.   1 Thessalonians 5:23 


The grace of our Lord Jesus  Christ be with you. Amen.   1 Thessalonians 5:28 


Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in  God our Father and the Lord Jesus  Christ:
Grace unto you, and peace, from  God our Father and the Lord Jesus  Christ.   2 Thessalonians 1:1, 2 


In flaming  fire taking vengeance on them that know not  God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus  Christ:
Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our  God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:
That the name of our Lord Jesus  Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our  God and the Lord Jesus  Christ.   2 Thessalonians 1:8-12 


Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus  Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of  Christ is at hand.   2 Thessalonians 2:1, 2 


Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus  Christ.
Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
Now our Lord Jesus  Christ himself, and  God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
Comfort your  hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.   2 Thessalonians 2:14-17 


And the Lord direct your  hearts into the love of  God, and into the patient waiting for  Christ.
Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus  Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.   2 Thessalonians 3:5, 6 


Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus  Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own  bread.   2 Thessalonians 3:12 


The grace of our Lord Jesus  Christ be with you all. Amen.   2 Thessalonians 3:18 


Paul, an apostle of Jesus  Christ by the commandment of  God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus  Christ, which is our hope;
Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from  God our Father and Jesus  Christ our Lord.   1 Timothy 1:1, 2 


And I thank  Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in  Christ Jesus.
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that  Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus  Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.   1 Timothy 1:12-16 


For there is one  God, and one mediator between  God and men, the man  Christ Jesus;
Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in  Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.   1 Timothy 2:5-7 


For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in  Christ Jesus.   1 Timothy 3:13 


If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus  Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.   1 Timothy 4:6 


But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against  Christ, they will marry;
Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.   1 Timothy 5:11, 12 


I charge thee before  God, and the Lord Jesus  Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.   1 Timothy 5:21 


If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus  Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings,  evil surmisings,
Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.   1 Timothy 6:3-5 


I give thee charge in the sight of  God, who quickeneth all things, and before  Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;
That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus  Christ:
Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.   1 Timothy 6:13-16 


Paul, an apostle of Jesus  Christ by the will of  God, according to the promise of life which is in  Christ Jesus,
To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from  God the Father and  Christ Jesus our Lord.   2 Timothy 1:1, 2 


Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in  Christ Jesus before the world began,
But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus  Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in  Christ Jesus.   2 Timothy 1:9-13 


Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in  Christ Jesus.
And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus  Christ.   2 Timothy 2:1-3 


Remember that Jesus  Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:
Wherein I suffer trouble, as an  evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of  God is not bound.
Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in  Christ Jesus with eternal glory.   2 Timothy 2:8-10 


Nevertheless the foundation of  God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of  Christ depart from iniquity.   2 Timothy 2:19 


Yea, and all that will live godly in  Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.   2 Timothy 3:12 


And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in  Christ Jesus.   2 Timothy 3:15 


I charge thee therefore before  God, and the Lord Jesus  Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.   2 Timothy 4:1, 2 


The Lord Jesus  Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.   2 Timothy 4:22 


Paul, a servant of  God, and an apostle of Jesus  Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;
In hope of eternal life, which  God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of  God our Saviour;
To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from  God the Father and the Lord Jesus  Christ our Saviour.   Titus 1:1-4 


Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great  God and our Saviour Jesus  Christ;
Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.   Titus 2:13, 14 


Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus  Christ our Saviour;
That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.   Titus 3:6, 7 


Paul, a prisoner of Jesus  Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:
Grace to you, and peace, from  God our Father and the Lord Jesus  Christ.   Philemon 1:1-3 


That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in  Christ Jesus.
For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
Wherefore, though I might be much bold in  Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus  Christ.   Philemon 1:6-9 


There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in  Christ Jesus;
Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
The grace of our Lord Jesus  Christ be with your spirit. Amen.   Philemon 1:23-25 


Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession,  Christ Jesus;
Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.   Hebrews 3:1, 2 


But  Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.   Hebrews 3:6 


For we are made partakers of  Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your  hearts, as in the provocation.   Hebrews 3:14, 15 


So also  Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.   Hebrews 5:5 


Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of  Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward  God,
Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.   Hebrews 6:1, 2 


But  Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
Neither by the  blood of goats and calves, but by his own  blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
For if the  blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the  flesh:
How much more shall the  blood of  Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to  God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living  God?
And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.   Hebrews 9:11-15 


For  Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into  heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of  God for us:
Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with  blood of others;
For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
So  Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.   Hebrews 9:24-28 


By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus  Christ once for all.   Hebrews 10:10 


Esteeming the reproach of  Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.   Hebrews 11:26 


Jesus  Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.   Hebrews 13:8 


Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus  Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.   Hebrews 13:21 


James, a servant of  God and of the Lord Jesus  Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.   James 1:1 


My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus  Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.   James 2:1 


Peter, an apostle of Jesus  Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
Elect according to the foreknowledge of  God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the  blood of Jesus  Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
Blessed be the  God and Father of our Lord Jesus  Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus  Christ from the dead,
To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in  heaven for you,
Who are kept by the power of  God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of  gold that perisheth, though it be tried with  fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus  Christ:
Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of  Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of  Christ, and the glory that should follow.
Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from  heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus  Christ;
As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.   1 Peter 1:1-16 


But with the precious  blood of  Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
Who by him do believe in  God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in  God.   1 Peter 1:19-21 


Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to  God by Jesus  Christ.   1 Peter 2:5 


For even hereunto were ye called: because  Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the  tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.   1 Peter 2:21-24 


Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak  evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in  Christ.
For it is better, if the will of  God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for  evil doing.
For  Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to  God, being put to death in the  flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in  prison;
Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of  God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by  water.
The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the  flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward  God,) by the resurrection of Jesus  Christ:
Who is gone into  heaven, and is on the right hand of  God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.   1 Peter 3:16-22 


Forasmuch then as  Christ hath suffered for us in the  flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the  flesh hath ceased from sin;
That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the  flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of  God.   1 Peter 4:1, 2 


If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of  God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which  God giveth: that  God in all things may be glorified through Jesus  Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
If ye be reproached for the name of  Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of  God resteth upon you: on their part he is  evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify  God on this behalf.   1 Peter 4:11-16 


The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of  Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
Feed the flock of  God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.   1 Peter 5:1-3 


But the  God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by  Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.   1 Peter 5:10 


Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in  Christ Jesus. Amen.   1 Peter 5:14 


Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus  Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of  God and our Saviour Jesus  Christ:
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of  God, and of Jesus our Lord,
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.   2 Peter 1:1-4 


For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus  Christ.   2 Peter 1:8 


For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus  Christ.   2 Peter 1:11 


Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus  Christ hath shewed me.
Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.
For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus  Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.   2 Peter 1:14-16 


For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus  Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.   2 Peter 2:20 


But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus  Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.   2 Peter 3:18

And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world.   1 John 2:1, 2 


Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the  Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.   1 John 2:22 


And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus  Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.   1 John 3:23 


Hereby know ye the Spirit of  God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus  Christ is come in the  flesh is of  God:
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus  Christ is come in the  flesh is not of  God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.   1 John 4:2, 3 


Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the  Christ is born of  God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.   1 John 5:1 


This is he that came by  water and  blood, even Jesus  Christ; not by  water only, but by  water and  blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.   1 John 5:6
