From Gary.... No, No, No is good for you!!!



I just happened to view this video today and it brought a smile to my face.  Hope it will to you as well.  The passage below was its obvious companion...

Proverbs, Chapter 22
 6 Train up a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not depart from it.

If children grow up to be upstanding citizens and parents, its because they we taught correctly.  And its work, hard work; but more than worthwhile.  Just a thought to ponder on my first afternoon in awhile without rain.  Hope it stays like that!!!

Psalms 105-108

Psa 105:1 Give thanks to Yahweh! Call on his name! Make his doings known among the peoples.
Psa 105:2 Sing to him, sing praises to him! Tell of all his marvelous works.
Psa 105:3 Glory in his holy name. Let the heart of those who seek Yahweh rejoice.
Psa 105:4 Seek Yahweh and his strength. Seek his face forever more.
Psa 105:5 Remember his marvelous works that he has done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth,
Psa 105:6 you seed of Abraham, his servant, you children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
Psa 105:7 He is Yahweh, our God. His judgments are in all the earth.
Psa 105:8 He has remembered his covenant forever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations,
Psa 105:9 the covenant which he made with Abraham, his oath to Isaac,
Psa 105:10 and confirmed the same to Jacob for a statute; to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
Psa 105:11 saying, "To you I will give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;"
Psa 105:12 when they were but a few men in number, yes, very few, and foreigners in it.
Psa 105:13 They went about from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people.
Psa 105:14 He allowed no one to do them wrong. Yes, he reproved kings for their sakes,
Psa 105:15 "Don't touch my anointed ones! Do my prophets no harm!"
Psa 105:16 He called for a famine on the land. He destroyed the food supplies.
Psa 105:17 He sent a man before them. Joseph was sold for a slave.
Psa 105:18 They bruised his feet with shackles. His neck was locked in irons,
Psa 105:19 until the time that his word happened, and Yahweh's word proved him true.
Psa 105:20 The king sent and freed him; even the ruler of peoples, and let him go free.
Psa 105:21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all of his possessions;
Psa 105:22 to discipline his princes at his pleasure, and to teach his elders wisdom.
Psa 105:23 Israel also came into Egypt. Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
Psa 105:24 He increased his people greatly, and made them stronger than their adversaries.
Psa 105:25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to conspire against his servants.
Psa 105:26 He sent Moses, his servant, and Aaron, whom he had chosen.
Psa 105:27 They performed miracles among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.
Psa 105:28 He sent darkness, and made it dark. They didn't rebel against his words.
Psa 105:29 He turned their waters into blood, and killed their fish.
Psa 105:30 Their land swarmed with frogs, even in the chambers of their kings.
Psa 105:31 He spoke, and swarms of flies came, and lice in all their borders.
Psa 105:32 He gave them hail for rain, with lightning in their land.
Psa 105:33 He struck their vines and also their fig trees, and shattered the trees of their country.
Psa 105:34 He spoke, and the locusts came, and the grasshoppers, without number,
Psa 105:35 ate up every plant in their land; and ate up the fruit of their ground.
Psa 105:36 He struck also all the firstborn in their land, the first fruits of all their manhood.
Psa 105:37 He brought them forth with silver and gold. There was not one feeble person among his tribes.
Psa 105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed, for the fear of them had fallen on them.
Psa 105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering, fire to give light in the night.
Psa 105:40 They asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of the sky.
Psa 105:41 He opened the rock, and waters gushed out. They ran as a river in the dry places.
Psa 105:42 For he remembered his holy word, and Abraham, his servant.
Psa 105:43 He brought forth his people with joy, his chosen with singing.
Psa 105:44 He gave them the lands of the nations. They took the labor of the peoples in possession,
Psa 105:45 that they might keep his statutes, and observe his laws. Praise Yah!
Psa 106:1 Praise Yahweh! Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever.
Psa 106:2 Who can utter the mighty acts of Yahweh, or fully declare all his praise?
Psa 106:3 Blessed are those who keep justice. Blessed is one who does what is right at all times.
Psa 106:4 Remember me, Yahweh, with the favor that you show to your people. Visit me with your salvation,
Psa 106:5 that I may see the prosperity of your chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, that I may glory with your inheritance.
Psa 106:6 We have sinned with our fathers. We have committed iniquity. We have done wickedly.
Psa 106:7 Our fathers didn't understand your wonders in Egypt. They didn't remember the multitude of your loving kindnesses, but were rebellious at the sea, even at the Red Sea.
Psa 106:8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power known.
Psa 106:9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up; so he led them through the depths, as through a desert.
Psa 106:10 He saved them from the hand of him who hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
Psa 106:11 The waters covered their adversaries. There was not one of them left.
Psa 106:12 Then they believed his words. They sang his praise.
Psa 106:13 They soon forgot his works. They didn't wait for his counsel,
Psa 106:14 but gave in to craving in the desert, and tested God in the wasteland.
Psa 106:15 He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul.
Psa 106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron, Yahweh's saint.
Psa 106:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.
Psa 106:18 A fire was kindled in their company. The flame burned up the wicked.
Psa 106:19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshiped a molten image.
Psa 106:20 Thus they exchanged their glory for an image of a bull that eats grass.
Psa 106:21 They forgot God, their Savior, who had done great things in Egypt,
Psa 106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and awesome things by the Red Sea.
Psa 106:23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had Moses, his chosen, not stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, so that he wouldn't destroy them.
Psa 106:24 Yes, they despised the pleasant land. They didn't believe his word,
Psa 106:25 but murmured in their tents, and didn't listen to Yahweh's voice.
Psa 106:26 Therefore he swore to them that he would overthrow them in the wilderness,
Psa 106:27 that he would overthrow their seed among the nations, and scatter them in the lands.
Psa 106:28 They joined themselves also to Baal Peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
Psa 106:29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their deeds. The plague broke in on them.
Psa 106:30 Then Phinehas stood up, and executed judgment, so the plague was stopped.
Psa 106:31 That was credited to him for righteousness, for all generations to come.
Psa 106:32 They angered him also at the waters of Meribah, so that Moses was troubled for their sakes;
Psa 106:33 because they were rebellious against his spirit, he spoke rashly with his lips.
Psa 106:34 They didn't destroy the peoples, as Yahweh commanded them,
Psa 106:35 but mixed themselves with the nations, and learned their works.
Psa 106:36 They served their idols, which became a snare to them.
Psa 106:37 Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons.
Psa 106:38 They shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan. The land was polluted with blood.
Psa 106:39 Thus were they defiled with their works, and prostituted themselves in their deeds.
Psa 106:40 Therefore Yahweh burned with anger against his people. He abhorred his inheritance.
Psa 106:41 He gave them into the hand of the nations. Those who hated them ruled over them.
Psa 106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them. They were brought into subjection under their hand.
Psa 106:43 Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their counsel, and were brought low in their iniquity.
Psa 106:44 Nevertheless he regarded their distress, when he heard their cry.
Psa 106:45 He remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses.
Psa 106:46 He made them also to be pitied by all those who carried them captive.
Psa 106:47 Save us, Yahweh, our God, gather us from among the nations, to give thanks to your holy name, to triumph in your praise!
Psa 106:48 Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting! Let all the people say, "Amen." Praise Yah!
Psa 107:1 Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever.
Psa 107:2 Let the redeemed by Yahweh say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the adversary,
Psa 107:3 And gathered out of the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.
Psa 107:4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way. They found no city to live in.
Psa 107:5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
Psa 107:6 Then they cried to Yahweh in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses,
Psa 107:7 he led them also by a straight way, that they might go to a city to live in.
Psa 107:8 Let them praise Yahweh for his loving kindness, for his wonderful works to the children of men!
Psa 107:9 For he satisfies the longing soul. He fills the hungry soul with good.
Psa 107:10 Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron,
Psa 107:11 because they rebelled against the words of God, and condemned the counsel of the Most High.
Psa 107:12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labor. They fell down, and there was none to help.
Psa 107:13 Then they cried to Yahweh in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.
Psa 107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their bonds in sunder.
Psa 107:15 Let them praise Yahweh for his loving kindness, for his wonderful works to the children of men!
Psa 107:16 For he has broken the gates of brass, and cut through bars of iron.
Psa 107:17 Fools are afflicted because of their disobedience, and because of their iniquities.
Psa 107:18 Their soul abhors all kinds of food. They draw near to the gates of death.
Psa 107:19 Then they cry to Yahweh in their trouble, he saves them out of their distresses.
Psa 107:20 He sends his word, and heals them, and delivers them from their graves.
Psa 107:21 Let them praise Yahweh for his loving kindness, for his wonderful works to the children of men!
Psa 107:22 Let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with singing.
Psa 107:23 Those who go down to the sea in ships, who do business in great waters;
Psa 107:24 These see Yahweh's works, and his wonders in the deep.
Psa 107:25 For he commands, and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up its waves.
Psa 107:26 They mount up to the sky; they go down again to the depths. Their soul melts away because of trouble.
Psa 107:27 They reel back and forth, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.
Psa 107:28 Then they cry to Yahweh in their trouble, and he brings them out of their distress.
Psa 107:29 He makes the storm a calm, so that its waves are still.
Psa 107:30 Then they are glad because it is calm, so he brings them to their desired haven.
Psa 107:31 Let them praise Yahweh for his loving kindness, for his wonderful works for the children of men!
Psa 107:32 Let them exalt him also in the assembly of the people, and praise him in the seat of the elders.
Psa 107:33 He turns rivers into a desert, water springs into a thirsty ground,
Psa 107:34 and a fruitful land into a salt waste, for the wickedness of those who dwell in it.
Psa 107:35 He turns a desert into a pool of water, and a dry land into water springs.
Psa 107:36 There he makes the hungry live, that they may prepare a city to live in,
Psa 107:37 sow fields, plant vineyards, and reap the fruits of increase.
Psa 107:38 He blesses them also, so that they are multiplied greatly. He doesn't allow their livestock to decrease.
Psa 107:39 Again, they are diminished and bowed down through oppression, trouble, and sorrow.
Psa 107:40 He pours contempt on princes, and causes them to wander in a trackless waste.
Psa 107:41 Yet he lifts the needy out of their affliction, and increases their families like a flock.
Psa 107:42 The upright will see it, and be glad. All the wicked will shut their mouths.
Psa 107:43 Whoever is wise will pay attention to these things. They will consider the loving kindnesses of Yahweh.
Psa 108:1 My heart is steadfast, God. I will sing and I will make music with my soul.
Psa 108:2 Wake up, harp and lyre! I will wake up the dawn.
Psa 108:3 I will give thanks to you, Yahweh, among the nations. I will sing praises to you among the peoples.
Psa 108:4 For your loving kindness is great above the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Psa 108:5 Be exalted, God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth.
Psa 108:6 That your beloved may be delivered, save with your right hand, and answer us.
Psa 108:7 God has spoken from his sanctuary: "In triumph, I will divide Shechem, and measure out the valley of Succoth.
Psa 108:8 Gilead is mine. Manasseh is mine. Ephraim also is my helmet. Judah is my scepter.
Psa 108:9 Moab is my wash pot. I will toss my sandal on Edom. I will shout over Philistia."
Psa 108:10 Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who has led me to Edom?
Psa 108:11 Haven't you rejected us, God? You don't go forth, God, with our armies.
Psa 108:12 Give us help against the enemy, for the help of man is vain.
Psa 108:13 Through God, we will do valiantly. For it is he who will tread down our enemies. 



 
The Composite Bible
The World English Bible
Darby's Translation
Young's Literal Translation

The Composite Bible is a effort to understand the Bible by considering it from different perspectives and different levels of literalcy. First, read the World English Bible (the least literal-black text) for comprehension of the text. Next, read both the World English Bible with the Darby Translation (more literal-blue text)to make comparisons and lastly, read all three versions (Young's is the most literal translation- red text) at one time to obtain an overview of the text. Doing this will make you think about what the Scriptures are actually saying and avoid reading in a superficial manner.

The Composite Bible
The World English Bible
Darby's Translation
Young's Literal Translation

The Composite Bible is a effort to understand the Bible by considering it from different perspectives and different levels of literalcy. First, read the World English Bible (the least literal-black text) for comprehension of the text. Next, read both the World English Bible with the Darby Translation (more literal-blue text)to make comparisons and lastly, read all three versions (Young's is the most literal translation- red text) at one time to obtain an overview of the text. Doing this will make you think about what the Scriptures are actually saying and avoid reading in a superficial manner.
