Verse of the Day

1 Peter 2:15-16For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. [Act] as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but [use it] as bondslaves of God.

Job chapter 31

1
"I have made a covenant with my eyes; How then could I gaze at a virgin?
2
"And what is the portion of God from above Or the heritage of the Almighty from on high?
3
"Is it not calamity to the unjust And disaster to those who work iniquity?
4
"Does He not see my ways And number all my steps?
5
"If I have walked with falsehood, And my foot has hastened after deceit,
6
Let Him weigh me with accurate scales, And let God know my integrity.
7
"If my step has turned from the way, Or my heart followed my eyes, Or if any spot has stuck to my hands,
8
Let me sow and another eat, And let my crops be uprooted.
9
"If my heart has been enticed by a woman, Or I have lurked at my neighbor's doorway,
10
May my wife grind for another, And let others kneel down over her.
11
"For that would be a lustful crime; Moreover, it would be an iniquity [punishable by] judges.
12
"For it would be fire that consumes to Abaddon, And would uproot all my increase.
13
"If I have despised the claim of my male or female slaves When they filed a complaint against me,
14
What then could I do when God arises? And when He calls me to account, what will I answer Him?
15
"Did not He who made me in the womb make him, And the same one fashion us in the womb?
16
"If I have kept the poor from [their] desire, Or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail,
17
Or have eaten my morsel alone, And the orphan has not shared it
18
(But from my youth he grew up with me as with a father, And from infancy I guided her),
19
If I have seen anyone perish for lack of clothing, Or that the needy had no covering,
20
If his loins have not thanked me, And if he has not been warmed with the fleece of my sheep,
21
If I have lifted up my hand against the orphan, Because I saw I had support in the gate,
22
Let my shoulder fall from the socket, And my arm be broken off at the elbow.
23
"For calamity from God is a terror to me, And because of His majesty I can do nothing.
24
"If I have put my confidence [in] gold, And called fine gold my trust,
25
If I have gloated because my wealth was great, And because my hand had secured [so] much;
26
If I have looked at the sun when it shone Or the moon going in splendor,
27
And my heart became secretly enticed, And my hand threw a kiss from my mouth,
28
That too would have been an iniquity [calling for] judgment, For I would have denied God above.
29
"Have I rejoiced at the extinction of my enemy, Or exulted when evil befell him?
30
"No, I have not allowed my mouth to sin By asking for his life in a curse.
31
"Have the men of my tent not said, 'Who can find one who has not been satisfied with his meat '?
32
"The alien has not lodged outside, [For] I have opened my doors to the traveler.
33
"Have I covered my transgressions like Adam, By hiding my iniquity in my bosom,
34
Because I feared the great multitude, And the contempt of families terrified me, And kept silent and did not go out of doors?
35
"Oh that I had one to hear me! Behold, here is my signature; Let the Almighty answer me! And the indictment which my adversary has written,
36
Surely I would carry it on my shoulder, I would bind it to myself like a crown.
37
"I would declare to Him the number of my steps; Like a prince I would approach Him.
38
"If my land cries out against me, And its furrows weep together;
39
If I have eaten its fruit without money, Or have caused its owners to lose their lives,
40
Let briars grow instead of wheat, And stinkweed instead of barley." The words of Job are ended.

Job chapter 32

1
Then these three men ceased answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.
2
But the anger of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram burned; against Job his anger burned because he justified himself before God.
3
And his anger burned against his three friends because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.
4
Now Elihu had waited to speak to Job because they were years older than he.
5
And when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of the three men his anger burned.
6
So Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite spoke out and said, "I am young in years and you are old; Therefore I was shy and afraid to tell you what I think.
7
"I thought age should speak, And increased years should teach wisdom.
8
"But it is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives them understanding.
9
"The abundant [in years] may not be wise, Nor may elders understand justice.
10
"So I say, 'Listen to me, I too will tell what I think.'
11
"Behold, I waited for your words, I listened to your reasonings, While you pondered what to say.
12
"I even paid close attention to you; Indeed, there was no one who refuted Job, Not one of you who answered his words.
13
"Do not say, 'We have found wisdom; God will rout him, not man.'
14
"For he has not arranged [his] words against me, Nor will I reply to him with your arguments.
15
"They are dismayed, they no longer answer; Words have failed them.
16
"Shall I wait, because they do not speak, Because they stop [and] no longer answer?
17
"I too will answer my share, I also will tell my opinion.
18
"For I am full of words; The spirit within me constrains me.
19
"Behold, my belly is like unvented wine, Like new wineskins it is about to burst.
20
"Let me speak that I may get relief; Let me open my lips and answer.
21
"Let me now be partial to no one, Nor flatter [any] man.
22
"For I do not know how to flatter, [Else] my Maker would soon take me away.

Galatians chapter 5

1
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.
2
Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you.
3
And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law.
4
You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.
5
For we through the Spirit, by faith, are waiting for the hope of righteousness.
6
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.
7
You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth?
8
This persuasion [did] not [come] from Him who calls you.
9
A little leaven leavens the whole lump [of dough].
10
I have confidence in you in the Lord that you will adopt no other view; but the one who is disturbing you will bear his judgment, whoever he is.
11
But I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling block of the cross has been abolished.
12
I wish that those who are troubling you would even mutilate themselves.
13
For you were called to freedom, brethren; only [do] not [turn] your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
14
For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the [statement], "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF."
15
But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.
16
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.
17
For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please.
18
But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.
19
Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality,
20
idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions,
21
envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23
gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
24
Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25
If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
26
Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.

Galatians chapter 6

1
Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; [each one] looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted.
2
Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.
3
For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
4
But each one must examine his own work, and then he will have [reason for] boasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another.
5
For each one will bear his own load.
6
The one who is taught the word is to share all good things with the one who teaches [him].
7
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.
8
For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
9
Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.
10
So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
11
See with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand.
12
Those who desire to make a good showing in the flesh try to compel you to be circumcised, simply so that they will not be persecuted for the cross of Christ.
13
For those who are circumcised do not even keep the Law themselves, but they desire to have you circumcised so that they may boast in your flesh.
14
But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
15
For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.
16
And those who will walk by this rule, peace and mercy [be] upon them, and upon the Israel of God.
17
From now on let no one cause trouble for me, for I bear on my body the brand-marks of Jesus.
18
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren. Amen.
