151He that feareth the Lord will do good, and he that hath the knowledge of the law shall obtain her.
2And as a mother shall she meet him, and receive him as a wife married of a virgin.
3With the bread of understanding shall she feed him, and give him the water of wisdom to drink.
4He shall be stayed upon her, and shall not be moved; and shall rely upon her, and shall not be confounded.
5She shall exalt him above his neighbours, and in the midst of the congregation shall she open his mouth.
6He shall find joy and a crown of gladness, and she shall cause him to inherit an everlasting name.
7But foolish men shall not attain unto her, and sinners shall not see her.
8For she is far from pride, and men that are liars cannot remember her.
9Praise is not seemly in the mouth of a sinner, for it was not sent him of the Lord.
10For praise shall be uttered in wisdom, and the Lord will prosper it.
11Say not thou, It is through the Lord that I fell away: for thou oughtest not to do the things that he hateth.
12Say not thou, He hath caused me to err: for he hath no need of the sinful man.
13The Lord hateth all abomination; and they that fear God love it not.
14He himself made man from the beginning, and left him in the hand of his counsel;
15If thou wilt, to keep the commandments, and to perform acceptable faithfulness.
16He hath set fire and water before thee: stretch forth thy hand unto whether thou wilt.
17Before man is life and death; and whether him liketh shall be given him.
18For the wisdom of the Lord is great, and he is mighty in power, and beholdeth all things:
19And his eyes are upon them that fear him, and he knoweth every work of man.
20He hath commanded no man to do wickedly, neither hath he given any man licence to sin.
11The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 2Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. 3Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. 4John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
9I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
19Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; 20The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
