“1) The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
2) For he flattereth himself in his own eyes until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
3) The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit; he hath ceased to be wise and to do good.
4) He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.
5) Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens, and Thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
6) Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; Thy judgments are a great deep; O Lord, Thou preservest man and beast.
7) How excellent is Thy lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Thy wings.
8) They shall be abundantly satisfied with the bounty of Thy house, and Thou shalt make them drink of the river of Thy pleasures.
9) For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light shall we see light.
10) O continue Thy lovingkindness unto them that know Thee, and Thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
11) Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
12) There the workers of iniquity lie fallen; they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.”
“1) Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty; give unto the Lord glory and strength.
2) Give unto the Lord the glory due unto His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
3) The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of glory thundereth; the Lord is upon many waters.
4) The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
5) The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars; yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
6) He maketh them also to skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
7) The voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire.
8) The voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness; the Lord shaketh the Wilderness of Kadesh.
9) The voice of the Lord maketh the hinds to calve, and layeth bare the forests, and in His temple doth every one speak of His glory.
10) The Lord sitteth over the flood; yea, the Lord sitteth as King for ever.
11) The Lord will give strength unto His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.”
“Christians get in trouble when they conform to the world’s thinking and ignore principles. They are tempted not to cause waves, forgetting that the world already is a turbulent place and that men are – whether they realize it or not – for the stability of fixed principles. These principles can come only from the Christians, from those who base all decisions upon Biblical truth.”

“21) “Produce your cause,” says the Lord; “bring forth your strong reasons,” says the King of Jacob.
22) “Let them bring them forth and show us what shall happen; let them show the former things, what they be, that we may consider them and know the latter end of them; or declare us things to come.
23) Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods: yea, do good or do evil, that we may be dismayed and behold it together.
24) Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought; an abomination is he that chooses you.
28) For I beheld, and there was no man, even among them; and there was no counselor that, when I asked of them, could answer a word.
29) Behold, they are all vanity! Their works are nothing; their molten images are wind and confusion.”
“18) And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
19)The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
20) For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:
21) That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.”
“13) Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near Me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour Me, but have removed their heart far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the precept of men:
14) Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
15) Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who sees us? and who knows us?
16) Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?”
