How to Alleviate:
2 Cor. 13:5
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?
1 Cor. 11:31
For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou
shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on
earth shall be loosed in heaven.
1 Samuel 15:22
And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and
sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than
sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there remembers that thy
brother hath ought against thee;  Leave there thy gift before the altar, and
go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me,
and I forgive him? till seven times?  Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto
thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your
Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.  But if ye
do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your
Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they
parted his raiment, and cast lots.
Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins
ye retain, they are retained.
2 Cor. 2:10-11
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
A Psalm of David, Maschil.
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.  Blessed
is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there
is no guile.  When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all
the day long.  For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is
turned into the drought of summer. Selah.  I acknowledged my sin unto thee,
and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto
the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not
himself in that thing which he alloweth.
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as
thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Master, which is the great commandment in the law?  Jesus said unto him,
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and
with all thy mind.  This is the first and great commandment.  And the
second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.  On these
two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire
the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared
therein: for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God.  Neither shalt thou
bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but
thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a
Honor thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that
thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which
the Lord thy God giveth thee.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world
through him might be saved.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who
walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
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:
1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him; 
When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his
heart.  Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed
before the whole congregation.  Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and
he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.  A lying tongue hateth
those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.
1 John 2:9-12
He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even
until now.  He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is
none occasion of stumbling in him.  But he that hateth his brother is in
darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because
that darkness hath blinded his eyes.  I write unto you, little children,
because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.
1 John 3:15-22
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath
eternal life abiding in him.  Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he
laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and
shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in
him?  My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in
deed and in truth.  And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall
assure our hearts before him.  For if our heart condemn us, God is greater
than our heart, and knoweth all things.  Beloved, if our heart condemn us
not, then have we confidence toward God.  And whatsoever we ask, we receive
of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing
in his sight.
And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up;
and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not
shall be damned.  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name
shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;  They shall
take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them;
they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If
any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.  He that believeth on me,
as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should
receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own
understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy
 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it
was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in
departing from the living God.
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in
faith, giving glory to God;  And being fully persuaded that, what he had
promised, he was able also to perform.
And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son.
If ye will not believe, surely ye shall not be established.
And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be
it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.
Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that
holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven
golden candlesticks;  I know thy works, and thy labor, and thy patience, and
how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say
they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:  And hast borne,
and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast labored, and hast not fainted.
 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first
love.  Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the
first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy
candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.  But this thou hast, that
thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.  He that hath
an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that
overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the
paradise of God.
 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the
first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;  I know thy works, and
tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them
which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.  Fear
none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some
of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten
days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.  He
that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that
overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he
which hath the sharp sword with two edges;  I know thy works, and where thou
dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast
not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr,
who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.  But I have a few things
against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who
taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat
things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.  So hast thou also
them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate. 
Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with
the sword of my mouth.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit
saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden
manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written,
which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the
Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like
fine brass;  I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy
patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 
Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that
woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my
servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 
And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 
Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into
great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.  And I will kill her
children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which
searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according
to your works.  But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many
as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they
speak; I will put upon you none other burden.  But that which ye have
already hold fast till I come.  And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works
unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:  And he shall rule
them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to
shivers: even as I received of my Father.  And I will give him the morning
star.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the
[3:1] And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he
that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that
thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.  Be watchful, and strengthen
the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works
perfect before God.  Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and
hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as
a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.  Thou hast
a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall
walk with me in white: for they are worthy.  He that overcometh, the same
shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the
book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his
angels.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the
 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he
that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth,
and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;  I know thy works:
behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou
hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and
are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy
feet, and to know that I have loved thee.  Because thou hast kept the word
of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall
come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.  Behold, I
come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall
go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of
the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from
my God: and I will write upon him my new name.  He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things
saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of
God;  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou
wert cold or hot.  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor
hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and
increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art
wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:  I counsel thee to
buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment,
that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear;
and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see.  As many as I
love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.  Behold, I
stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I
will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.  To him that
overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame,
and am set down with my Father in his throne.  He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear
heavy, that it cannot hear:  But your iniquities have separated between you
and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.  Keep
back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over
me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great
When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels
of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and
took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and
the silver under it.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant
to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit
thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
6. Praying Correctly
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
1 Thes. 5:18
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus
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.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be
thankful unto him, and bless his name.
1 Tim. 2:1-4
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions,
and giving of thanks, be made for all men;  For kings, and for all that are
in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and
honesty.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the
Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto
me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in
the thing whereto I sent it.
Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity,
and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it
shall be done unto you.
7. Care of Temple of God
For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with
surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon
1 Cor. 9:25-27
And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they
do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.  I therefore
so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means,
when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your
bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable
service.  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and
perfect, will of God.
When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:
 And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.  Be
not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his
dainty meats:  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink,
saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.  The morsel which thou hast
eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.
8. Touching God's Anointed
1 Cor. 12:28
And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets,
thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps,
governments, diversities of tongues.
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some,
pastors and teachers;
Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
1 Chron. 16:22
Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
1 Samuel 26:5-11
And David arose, and came to the place where Saul had pitched: and David beheld
the place where Saul lay, and Abner the son of Ner, the captain of his host: and
Saul lay in the trench, and the people pitched round about him.  Then
answered David and said to Ahimelech the Hittite, and to Abishai the son of
Zeruiah, brother to Joab, saying, Who will go down with me to Saul to the camp?
And Abishai said, I will go down with thee.  So David and Abishai came to the
people by night: and, behold, Saul lay sleeping within the trench, and his spear
stuck in the ground at his bolster: but Abner and the people lay round about
him.  Then said Abishai to David, God hath delivered thine enemy into thine
hand this day: now therefore let me smite him, I pray thee, with the spear even
to the earth at once, and I will not smite him the second time.  And David
said to Abishai, Destroy him not: for who can stretch forth his hand against the
Lord's anointed, and be guiltless?  David said furthermore, As the Lord
liveth, the Lord shall smite him; or his day shall come to die; or he shall
descend into battle, and perish.  The Lord forbid that I should stretch
forth mine hand against the Lord's anointed: but, I pray thee, take thou now the
spear that is at his bolster, and the cruse of water, and let us go.
1 Thes. 5:12-13
And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labor among you, and are over
you in the Lord, and admonish you;  And to esteem them very highly in love
for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have
shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do
Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my
law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be
afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all
they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall
My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; 
So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to
understanding;  Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice
for understanding;  If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as
for hid treasures;  Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find
the knowledge of God.
In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what
flesh can do unto me.
In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord
hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for
them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.  And they shall
be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I
will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.  Then shall
ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that
serveth God and him that serveth him not.
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing
in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth,
and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me, and
their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:  Therefore, behold, I
will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and
a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding
of their prudent men shall be hid.
2 Tim. 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of
a sound mind.
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath
torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their
testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
10. Robbing God of His Tithes
Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed
thee? In tithes and offerings.  Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have
robbed me, even this whole nation.  Bring ye all the tithes into the
storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith,
saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour
you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit
of the tree, is the Lord's: it is holy unto the Lord.  And if a man will at
all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever
passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord.
But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated
unto the Lord: they shall come into the treasury of the Lord.
2 Cor. 9:6-10
But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he
which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.  Every man according as
he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for
God loveth a cheerful giver.  And God is able to make all grace abound toward
you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every
good work:  (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the
poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.  Now he that ministereth seed to
the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and
increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the Firstfruits of all thine
increase:  So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall
burst out with new wine.
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken
together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same
measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
1 Cor. 9:13
Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of
the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
11.Examining Selves Before Communion
1 Cor. 11:27-31
Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord,
unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.  But let a
man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation
to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.  For this cause many are weak
and sickly among you, and many sleep.  For if we would judge ourselves, we
should not be judged.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good
to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.  And
grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of
redemption.  Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil
speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:  And be ye kind one to
another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake
hath forgiven you.
Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother,
and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if
thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to
please ourselves.  Let every one of us please his neighbor for his good to
edification.  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
Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one
And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
12.Kind of Faith
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying,
Thou Son of David, have mercy on us.  And when he was come into the house,
the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able
to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.  Then touched he their eyes,
saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,  And had
suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was
nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,  When she had heard of Jesus, came
in the press behind, and touched his garment.  For she said, If I may touch
but his clothes, I shall be whole.  And straightway the fountain of her
blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him,
turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?  And his
disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest
thou, Who touched me?  And he looked round about to see her that had done
this thing.  But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in
her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.  And he said
unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of
And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those
things which were told her from the Lord.
And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is
faithful that promised;)
Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my
will, but thine, be done.
And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup
from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
13. Taken Away From Evil to Come
The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are
taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to
come.  He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one
walking in his uprightness.
14. Time to Die
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the
Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher
than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
2 Kings 2:9-10
And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask
what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I
pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.  And he said, Thou
hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee,
it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.
For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was
afraid of is come unto me.
Thou shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the
light shall shine upon thy ways.
