2 Samuel 7:1-29
1. And it came to pass, when the king dwelt in his house, and Jehovah had given him rest from all his enemies round about,
2. that the king said unto Nathan the prophet, See now, I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of God dwelleth within curtains.
3. And Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in thy heart; for Jehovah is with thee.
4. And it came to pass the same night, that the word of Jehovah came unto Nathan, saying,
5. Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith Jehovah, Shalt thou build me a house for me to dwell in?
6. for I have not dwelt in a house since the day that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle.
7. In all places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel, spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to be shepherd of my people Israel, saying, Why have ye not built me a house of cedar?
8. Now therefore thus shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith Jehovah of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, that thou shouldest be prince over my people, over Israel;
9. and I have been with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies from before thee; and I will make thee a great name, like unto the name of the great ones that are in the earth.
10. And I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in their own place, and be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as at the first,
11. and as from the day that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel; and I will cause thee to rest from all thine enemies. Moreover Jehovah telleth thee that Jehovah will make thee a house.
12. When thy days are fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, that shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.
13. He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever.
14. I will be his father, and he shall be my son: if he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men;
15. but my lovingkindness shall not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.
16. And thy house and thy kingdom shall be made sure for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.
17. According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.
18. Then David the king went in, and sat before Jehovah; and he said, Who am I, O Lord Jehovah, and what is my house, that thou hast brought me thus far?
19. And this was yet a small thing in thine eyes, O Lord Jehovah; but thou hast spoken also of thy servants house for a great while to come; and this too after the manner of men, O Lord Jehovah!
20. And what can David say more unto thee? for thou knowest thy servant, O Lord Jehovah.
21. For thy words sake, and according to thine own heart, hast thou wrought all this greatness, to make thy servant know it.
22. Wherefore thou art great, O Jehovah God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God besides thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
23. And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem unto himself for a people, and to make him a name, and to do great things for you, and terrible things for thy land, before thy people, whom thou redeemest to thee out of Egypt, from the nations and their gods?
24. And thou didst establish to thyself thy people Israel to be a people unto thee for ever; and thou, Jehovah, becamest their God.
25. And now, O Jehovah God, the word that thou hast spoken concerning thy servant, and concerning his house, confirm thou it for ever, and do as thou hast spoken.
26. And let thy name be magnified for ever, saying, Jehovah of hosts is God over Israel; and the house of thy servant David shall be established before thee.
27. For thou, O Jehovah of hosts, the God of Israel, hast revealed to thy servant, saying, I will build thee a house: therefore hath thy servant found in his heart to pray this prayer unto thee.
28. And now, O Lord Jehovah, thou art God, and thy words are truth, and thou hast promised this good thing unto thy servant:
29. now therefore let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may continue for ever before thee; for thou, O Lord Jehovah, hast spoken it: and with thy blessing let the house of thy servant be blessed for ever.

2 Samuel 8:1-18
1. And after this it came to pass, that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them: and David took the bridle of the mother city out of the hand of the Philistines.
2. And he smote Moab, and measured them with the line, making them to lie down on the ground; and he measured two lines to put to death, and one full line to keep alive. And the Moabites became servants to David, and brought tribute.
3. David smote also Hadadezer the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, as he went to recover his dominion at the River.
4. And David took from him a thousand and seven hundred horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: and David hocked all the chariot horses, but reserved of them for a hundred chariots.
5. And when the Syrians of Damascus came to succor Hadadezer king of Zobah, David smote of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men.
6. Then David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus; and the Syrians became servants to David, and brought tribute. And Jehovah gave victory to David whithersoever he went.
7. And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer, and brought them to Jerusalem.
8. And from Betah and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, king David took exceeding much brass.
9. And when Toi king of Hamath heard that David had smitten all the host of Hadadezer,
10. then Toi sent Joram his son unto king David, to salute him, and to bless him, because he had fought against Hadadezer and smitten him: for Hadadezer had wars with Toi. And Joram brought with him vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and vessels of brass:
11. These also did king David dedicate unto Jehovah, with the silver and gold that he dedicated of all the nations which he subdued;
12. of Syria, and of Moab, and of the children of Ammon, and of the Philistines, and of Amalek, and of the spoil of Hadadezer, son of Rehob, king of Zobah.
13. And David gat him a name when he returned from smiting the Syrians in the Valley of Salt, even eighteen thousand men.
14. And he put garrisons in Edom; throughout all Edom put he garrisons, and all the Edomites became servants to David. And Jehovah gave victory to David whithersoever he went.
15. And David reigned over all Israel; and David executed justice and righteousness unto all his people.
16. And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder;
17. and Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, were priests; and Seraiah was scribe;
18. and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and Davids sons were chief ministers.

Psalms 64:1-10
1. Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint: Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2. Hide me from the secret counsel of evil-doers, From the tumult of the workers of iniquity;
3. Who have whet their tongue like a sword, And have aimed their arrows, even bitter words,
4. That they may shoot in secret places at the perfect: Suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5. They encourage themselves in an evil purpose; They commune of laying snares privily; They say, Who will see them?
6. They search out iniquities; We have accomplished, say they, a diligent search: And the inward thought and the heart of every one is deep.
7. But God will shoot at them; With an arrow suddenly shall they be wounded.
8. So they shall be made to stumble, their own tongue being against them: All that see them shall wag the head.
9. And all men shall fear; And they shall declare the work of God, And shall wisely consider of his doing.
10. The righteous shall be glad in Jehovah, and shall take refuge in him; And all the upright in heart shall glory. Psalm 65 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm. A song of David.

Proverbs 16:18-19
18. Pride goeth before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.
19. Better it is to be of a lowly spirit with the poor, Than to divide the spoil with the proud.

John 5:24-47
24. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed out of death into life.
25. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live.
26. For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself:
27. and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man.
28. Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice,
29. and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment.
30. I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
31. If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
32. It is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
33. Ye have sent unto John, and he hath borne witness unto the truth.
34. But the witness which I receive is not from man: howbeit I say these things, that ye may be saved.
35. He was the lamp that burneth and shineth; and ye were willing to rejoice for a season in his light.
36. But the witness which I have is greater than that of John; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
37. And the Father that sent me, he hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.
38. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he sent, him ye believe not.
39. Ye search the scriptures, because ye think that in them ye have eternal life; and these are they which bear witness of me;
40. and ye will not come to me, that ye may have life.
41. I receive not glory from men.
42. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in yourselves.
43. I am come in my Fathers name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
44. How can ye believe, who receive glory one of another, and the glory that cometh from the only God ye seek not?
45. Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, on whom ye have set your hope.
46. For if ye believed Moses, ye would believe me; for he wrote of me.
47. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
