  22 G4183 { Many G2046 [G5692] will say G3427 to me G1722 in G1565 that G2250 day, G2962 Lord, G2962 Lord, G4395 0 have we G3756 not G4395 [G5656] prophesied G4674 in thy G3686 name? G2532 and G4674 in thy G3686 name G1544 [G5627] have cast out G1140 demons? G2532 and G4674 in thy G3686 name G4160 [G5656] done G4183 many G1411 powerful works?}
  23 G2532 { And G5119 then G3670 [G5692] will I profess G846 to them, G3754   G3763 I never G1097 [G5627] knew G5209 you: G672 [G5720] depart G575 from G1700 me, G2038 [G5740] ye that work G458 lawlessness.}
  24 G3767 { Therefore G3956 G3748 whoever G191 [G5719] heareth G5128 these G3056 sayings G3450 of mine, G2532 and G4160 [G5719] doeth G846 them, G3666 [G5692] I will liken G846 him G5429 to a prudent G435 man, G3748 who G3618 [G5656] built G846 his G3614 house G1909 upon G4073 a rock:}
  25 G2532 { And G3588 the G1028 rain G2597 [G5627] descended, G2532 and G3588 the G4215 floods G2064 [G5627] came, G2532 and G3588 the G417 winds G4154 [G5656] blew, G2532 and G4363 [G5627] fell upon G3588   G1565 that G3614 house; G2532 and G4098 [G5627] it fell G3756 not: G1063 for G2311 [G5718] it was founded G1909 upon G3588 the G4073 rock.}
  26 G2532 { And G3956 every one G191 [G5723] that heareth G5128 these G3056 sayings G3450 of mine, G2532 and G4160 [G5723] doeth G846 them G3361 not, G3666 [G5701] shall be likened G3474 to a foolish G435 man, G3748 who G3618 [G5656] built G846 his G3614 house G1909 upon G285 the sand:}
  27 G2532 { And G1028 the rain G2597 [G5627] descended, G2532 and G4215 the floods G2064 [G5627] came, G2532 and G417 the winds G4154 [G5656] blew, G2532 and G4350 [G5656] dash upon G1565 that G3614 house; G2532 and G4098 [G5627] it fell: G2532 and G3173 great G2258 [G5713] was G846 its G4431 fall.}
  28 G2532 And G1096 [G5633] it came to pass, G3753 when G2424 Jesus G4931 [G5656] had ended G5128 these G3056 sayings, G3588 the G3793 crowds G1605 [G5712] were astonished G1909 at G846 his G1322 teaching:
  29 G1063 For G1321 G2258 [G5723] he taught G846 them G5613 as G2192 [G5723] one having G1849 authority, G2532 and G3756 not G5613 as G1122 the scribes.

Galatians 6:5

  5 G1063 For G1538 every man G941 [G5692] shall bear G2398 his own G5413 load.

James 1:1-27

  1 G2385 Jacob, G1401 a slave G2316 of God G2532 and G2962 of the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Anointed, G1427 to the twelve G5443 tribes G1722 who G1290 are scattered abroad, G5463 [G5721] greeting.
  2 G3450 My G80 brethren, G2233 [G5662] count it G3956 all G5479 joy G3752 when G4045 [G5632] ye fall G4164 into various G3986 temptations;
  3 G1097 [G5723] Knowing this, G3754 that G3588 the G1383 proving G5216 of your G3588   G4102 faith G2716 [G5736] worketh G5281 endurance.
  4 G1161 But G2192 0 let G5281 patience G2192 [G5720] have G5046 her perfect G2041 work, G2443 that G5600 [G5753] ye may be G5046 perfect G2532 and G3648 entirely whole, G3007 [G5746] lacking G1722 G3367 nothing.
  5 G1161   G1536 If any G5216 of you G3007 [G5743] lacketh G4678 wisdom, G154 [G5720] let him ask G3844 of G2316 God, G1325 [G5723] who giveth G3956 to all G574 men liberally, G2532 and G3679 [G5723] upbraideth G3361 not; G2532 and G1325 [G5701] it shall be given G846 to him.
  6 G1161 But G154 [G5720] let him ask G1722 in G4102 faith, G3367 nothing G1252 [G5734] wavering. G1063 For G1252 [G5734] he that wavereth G1503 [G5758] resembles G2830 a wave G2281 of the sea G416 [G5746] driven with the wind G2532 and G4494 [G5746] tossed.
  7 G1063 For G3633 0 let G3361 not G1565 that G444 man G3633 [G5737] think G3754 that G2983 [G5695] he shall receive G5100 any thing G3844 from G2962 the Lord.
  8 G1374 A double breathed G435 man G182 is unstable G1722 in G3956 all G846 his G3598 ways.
  9 G1161 But G2744 0 let G3588 the G5011 humble G80 brother G2744 [G5737] boast G1722 in G3588   G846 his G5311 height:
  10 G1161 But G4145 the rich, G1722 in G846 his G5014 humiliation: G3754 because G5613 as G438 a flower G5528 of the grass G3928 [G5695] he shall pass away.
  11 G1063 For G2246 the sun G393 [G5656] did rise G4862 with G2742 a burning heat, G2532 and G3583 [G5656] it withered G5528 the grass, G2532 and G846 its G438 flower G1601 [G5627] fell out, G2532 and G2143 the good befittedness G846 of its G4383 fashion G622 [G5639] is made lost: G3779 so G2532 also G3133 0 shall G4145 the rich man G3133 [G5701] fade away G1722 in G846 his G4197 ways.
  12 G3107 Blessed G435 is the man G3739 that G5278 [G5719] endureth G3986 temptation: G3754 for G1384 G1096 [G5637] when he is approved, G2983 [G5695] he shall receive G4735 the crown G2222 of life, G3739 which G2962 the Lord G1861 [G5662] hath promised G25 [G5723] to them that love G846 him.
  13 G3004 0 Let G3367 no man G3985 [G5746] being tested G3004 [G5720] say G3754 that, G3985 [G5743] I am tested G575 from G2316 God: G3588   G1063 for G2316 God G2076 [G5748] is G551 incapable of being tested G2556 with bad things, G1161 neither G3985 0 testeth G846 G3985 [G5719] he G3762 any man:
  14 G1161 But G1538 each G3985 [G5743] is tested, G1828 [G5746] when he is being drawn away G5259 by G2398 his own G1939 lust, G2532 and G1185 [G5746] being entrapped.
  15 G1534 Then G1939 when lust G4815 [G5631] hath conceived, G5088 [G5719] it bringeth forth G266 sin: G1161 and G266 sin, G658 [G5685] when it is finished, G616 [G5719] bringeth forth G2288 death.
  16 G4105 0 Do G3361 not G4105 [G5744] go astray, G3450 my G27 beloved G80 brethren.
  17 G3956 Every G18 good G1394 gift G2532 and G3956 every G5046 perfect G1434 gift G2076 [G5748] is G509 from above, G2597 [G5723] and cometh down G575 from G3962 the Father G5457 of lights, G3844 with G3739 whom G1762 [G5748] is G3756 no G3883 variableness, G2228 neither G644 shadow G5157 of turning.
  18 G1014 [G5679] Of his own will G616 [G5656] he hath begotten G2248 us G3056 with the word G225 of truth, G1519 that G2248 we G1511 [G5750] should be G5100 a kind G536 of firstfruits G846 of his G2938 creatures.
  19 G5620 Therefore, G3450 my G27 beloved G80 brethren, G2077 0 let G3956 every G444 man G2077 [G5749] be G5036 swift G1519 to G191 [G5658] hear, G1021 slow G1519 to G2980 [G5658] speak, G1021 slow G1519 to G3709 wrath:
  20 G1063 For G3709 the wrath G435 of man G2716 [G5736] worketh G3756 not G1343 the righteousness G2316 of God.
  21 G1352 Therefore G659 [G5642] put away G3956 all G4507 filthiness G2532 and G4050 superabundance G2549 of wickedness, G1209 [G5663] and receive G1722 with G4240 meekness G1721 the engrafted G3056 word, G3588 which G1410 [G5740] is able G4982 [G5658] to save G5216 your G5590 breaths.
  22 G1161 But G1096 [G5737] be ye G4163 doers G3056 of the word, G2532 and G3361 not G202 hearers G3440 only, G3884 [G5740] deceiving G1438 your own selves.
  23 G3754 For G1536 if any G2076 [G5748] is G202 a hearer G3056 of the word, G2532 and G3756 not G4163 a doer, G3778 he G1503 [G5758] resembles G435 a man G2657 [G5723] beholding G846 his G1078 natural G4383 face G1722 in G2072 a mirror:
  24 G1063 For G2657 [G5656] he beholdeth G1438 himself, G2532 and G565 [G5754] goeth away, G2532 and G2112 immediately G1950 [G5633] forgetteth G3697 what manner of man G2258 [G5713] he was.
  25 G1161 But G3879 [G5660] he who looketh G1519 into G5046 the perfect G3551 law G1657 of liberty, G2532 and G3887 [G5660] continueth G3778 in it, he G1096 [G5637] being G3756 not G1953 a forgetful G202 hearer, G235 but G4163 a doer G2041 of the work, G3778 this man G2071 [G5704] shall be G3107 blessed G1722 in G846 his G4162 deed.
  26 G1536 If any man G1722 among G5213 you G1380 [G5719] seemeth G1511 [G5750] to be G2357 ceremonious in observance, G5468 [G5723] and bridleth G3361 not G846 his G1100 tongue, G235 but G538 [G5723] deceiveth G846 his own G2588 heart, G5127 this man's G2356 ceremonial observance G3152 is vain.
  27 G2513 Clean G2532 and G283 undefiled G2356 ceremonial observance G3844 before G2316 God G2532 and G3962 the Father G2076 [G5748] is G3778 this, G1980 [G5738] To visit G3737 the fatherless G2532 and G5503 widows G1722 in G846 their G2347 affliction, G5083 [G5721] and to keep G1438 himself G784 unspotted G575 from G2889 the world.

Matthew 7:12

  12 G3767 { Therefore G3956 all things G302 G3745 whatever G2309 [G5725] ye would G2443 that G444 men G4160 [G5725] should do G5213 to you, G4160 [G5720] do G5210 ye G2532 even G3779 so G846 to them: G1063 for G3778 this G2076 [G5748] is G3551 the law G2532 and G4396 the prophets.}

1 Peter 4:8

  8 G1161 And G4253 above G3956 all things G2192 [G5723] have G1618 fervent G26 love G1519 among G1438 yourselves: G3754 for G26 love G2572 [G5692] shall cover G4128 a multitude G266 of sins.

2 Timothy 4:1-22

  1 G1473 I G1263 [G5736] charge G3767 thee therefore G1799 before G2316 God, G2532 and G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Anointed, G3588 who G3195 [G5723] shall G2919 [G5721] judge G2198 [G5723] the living G2532 and G3498 the dead G2596 at G846 his G2015 appearing G2532 and G846 his G932 kingdom;
  2 G2784 [G5657] Proclaim G3588 the G3056 word; G2186 [G5628] stand by G2122 opportunely, G171 and inopportunely; G1651 [G5657] reprove, G2008 [G5657] rebuke, G3870 [G5657] exhort G1722 with G3956 all G3115 longsuffering G2532 and G1322 teaching.
  3 G1063 For G2540 the season G2071 [G5704] will come G3753 when G430 0 they will G3756 not G430 [G5695] bear with G5198 [G5723] sound G1319 teaching; G235 but G2596 after G2398 their own G1939 lusts G2002 [G5692] shall they heap up G1438 to themselves G1320 teachers, G2833 [G5746] having itching G189 ears;
  4 G2532 And G3303 G654 [G5692] they shall turn away G189 their ears G575 from G225 the truth, G1161 and G1624 [G5691] shall be turned G1909 to G3454 fables.
  5 G1161 But G3525 [G5720] be sober G4771 thou G1722 in G3956 all things, G2553 [G5657] endure hardships, G4160 [G5657] do G2041 the work G2099 of an announcer of good news, G4135 [G5657] make full proof G4675 of thy G1248 service.
  6 G1063 For G1473 I G4689 0 am G2235 now G4689 [G5743] ready to be offered, G2532 and G3588 the G2540 season G1699 of mine G359 unloosing G2186 [G5758] stands by.
  7 G75 [G5766] I have struggled G2570 a good G73 struggle, G5055 [G5758] I have finished G1408 my course, G5083 [G5758] I have kept G4102 the faith:
  8 G3063 Henceforth G606 [G5736] there is laid up G3427 for me G4735 a crown G1343 of righteousness, G3739 which G2962 the Lord, G1342 the righteous G2923 judge, G591 [G5692] shall give G3427 me G1722 at G1565 that G2250 day: G1161 and G3756 not G1698 to me G3440 only, G235 but G3956 to all them G2532 also G25 [G5761] that love G846 his G2015 appearing.
  9 G4704 [G5657] Hurry G2064 [G5629] to come G4314 to G3165 me G5030 quickly:
  10 G1063 For G1214 Demas G1459 [G5627] hath forsaken G3165 me, G25 [G5660] having loved G3588 this G3568 present G165 age, G2532 and G4198 [G5675] hath departed G1519 to G2332 Thessalonica; G2913 Crescens G1519 to G1053 Galatia, G5103 Titus G1519 to G1149 Dalmatia.
  11 G3065 Luke G3441 only G2076 [G5748] is G3326 with G1700 me. G353 [G5631] Take G3138 Mark, G71 [G5720] and bring him G3326 with G4572 thee: G1063 for G2076 [G5748] he is G2173 useful G3427 to me G1519 in G1248 service.
  12 G1161 And G5190 Tychicus G649 [G5656] have I sent G1519 to G2181 Ephesus.
  13 G5341 The cloke G3739 that G620 [G5627] I left G1722 at G5174 Troas G3844 with G2591 Carpus, G2064 [G5740] when thou comest, G5342 [G5720] bring G2532 with thee, and G975 the books, G3122 but especially G3200 the parchments.
  14 G223 Alexander G5471 the coppersmith G1731 [G5668] did G3427 me G4183 much G2556 bad: G2962 the Lord G591 [G5630] reward G846 him G2596 according to G846 his G2041 works:
  15 G3739 Of whom G5442 [G5732] beware G4771 thou G2532 also; G1063 for G436 0 he hath G3029 exceedingly G436 [G5758] withstood G2251 our G3056 words.
  16 G1722 At G3450 my G4413 first G627 defence G3762 no man G4836 [G5633] stood G3427 with me, G235 but G3956 all G1459 [G5627] men forsook G3165 me: G3049 0 I pray God that it may G3361 not G3049 [G5678] be laid G846 to their charge.
  17 G1161 However G2962 the Lord G3936 [G5627] stood G3427 with me, G2532 and G1743 [G5656] empowered G3165 me; G2443 that G1223 by G1700 me G2782 the proclamation G4135 [G5686] might be fully known, G2532 and G3956 that all G1484 the nations G191 [G5661] might hear: G2532 and G4506 [G5681] I was delivered G1537 out of G4750 the mouth G3023 of the lion.
  18 G2532 And G2962 the Lord G4506 [G5695] shall deliver G3165 me G575 from G3956 every G4190 evil G2041 work, G2532 and G4982 [G5692] will preserve G1519 me to G846 his G2032 heavenly G932 kingdom: G3739 to whom G1391 be glory G1519 to G3588 the G165 ages G3588 of the G165 ages. G281 Amen.
  19 G782 [G5663] Greet G4251 Prisca G2532 and G207 Aquila, G2532 and G3624 the household G3683 of Onesiphorus.
  20 G2037 Erastus G3306 [G5656] abode G1722 at G2882 Corinth: G1161 but G5161 Trophimus G620 [G5627] I have left G1722 at G3399 Miletum G770 [G5723] sick.
  21 G4704 [G5657] Hurry G2064 [G5629] to come G4253 before G5494 winter. G2103 Eubulus G782 [G5736] greeteth G4571 thee, G2532 and G4227 Pudens, G2532 and G3044 Linus, G2532 and G2803 Claudia, G2532 and G3956 all G80 the brethren.
  22 G2962 The Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Anointed G3326 be with G4675 thy G4151 spirit. G5485 Grace G3326 be with G5216 you. G281 Amen.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

  4 G26 Love G3114 [G5719] suffereth long, G5541 [G5736] and is kind; G26 love G3756 is not G2206 [G5719] zealous; G26 love G4068 0 vaunteth G3756 not G4068 [G5736] itself, G5448 0 is G3756 not G5448 [G5743] puffed up,
  5 G807 0 Doth G3756 not G807 [G5719] behave itself unseemly, G2212 [G5719] seeketh G3756 not G1438 its own, G3947 0 is G3756 not G3947 [G5743] easily provoked, G3756 is not G3049 [G5736] reckoning G3588 the G2556 bad;
  6 G5463 [G5719] Rejoiceth G3756 not G1909 in G93 injustice, G1161 but G4796 [G5719] rejoiceth G225 in the truth;
  7 G4722 [G5719] Covereth G3956 all things, G4100 [G5719] believeth G3956 all things, G1679 [G5719] expectantly awaiteth G3956 all things, G5278 [G5719] endureth G3956 all things.
  8 G26 Love G3763 never G1601 [G5719] falleth out: G1161 but G1535 whether G4394 there are prophecies, G2673 [G5701] they shall be rendered useless; G1535 whether G1100 there are tongues, G3973 [G5695] they shall cease; G1535 whether G1108 there is knowledge, G2673 [G5701] it shall be rendered useless.
