Psa 102:3 For my days consume away like smoke. My bones are burned as a firebrand.
Psa 102:4 My heart is blighted like grass, and withered, for I forget to eat my bread.
Psa 102:5 By reason of the voice of my groaning, my bones stick to my skin.
Psa 102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness. I have become as an owl of the waste places.
Psa 102:7 I watch, and have become like a sparrow that is alone on the housetop.
Psa 102:8 My enemies reproach me all day. Those who are mad at me use my name as a curse.
Psa 102:9 For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mixed my drink with tears,
Psa 102:10 Because of your indignation and your wrath, for you have taken me up, and thrown me away.
Psa 102:11 My days are like a long shadow. I have withered like grass.
Psa 102:12 But you, Yahweh, will abide forever; your renown endures to all generations.
Psa 102:13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for it is time to have pity on her. Yes, the set time has come.
Psa 102:14 For your servants take pleasure in her stones, and have pity on her dust.
Psa 102:15 So the nations will fear the name of Yahweh; all the kings of the earth your glory.
Psa 102:16 For Yahweh has built up Zion. He has appeared in his glory.
Psa 102:17 He has responded to the prayer of the destitute, and has not despised their prayer.
Psa 102:18 This will be written for the generation to come. A people which will be created will praise Yah.
Psa 102:19 For he has looked down from the height of his sanctuary. From heaven, Yahweh saw the earth;
Psa 102:20 to hear the groans of the prisoner; to free those who are condemned to death;
Psa 102:21 that men may declare the name of Yahweh in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
Psa 102:22 when the peoples are gathered together, the kingdoms, to serve Yahweh.
Psa 102:23 He weakened my strength along the course. He shortened my days.
Psa 102:24 I said, "My God, don't take me away in the midst of my days. Your years are throughout all generations.
Psa 102:25 Of old, you laid the foundation of the earth. The heavens are the work of your hands.
Psa 102:26 They will perish, but you will endure. Yes, all of them will wear out like a garment. You will change them like a cloak, and they will be changed.
Psa 102:27 But you are the same. Your years will have no end.
Psa 102:28 The children of your servants will continue. Their seed will be established before you."
Psa 103:1 Praise Yahweh, my soul! All that is within me, praise his holy name!
Psa 103:2 Praise Yahweh, my soul, and don't forget all his benefits;
Psa 103:3 who forgives all your sins; who heals all your diseases;
Psa 103:4 who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies;
Psa 103:5 who satisfies your desire with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
Psa 103:6 Yahweh executes righteous acts, and justice for all who are oppressed.
Psa 103:7 He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the children of Israel.
Psa 103:8 Yahweh is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness.
Psa 103:9 He will not always accuse; neither will he stay angry forever.
Psa 103:10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor repaid us for our iniquities.
Psa 103:11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his loving kindness toward those who fear him.
Psa 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
Psa 103:13 Like a father has compassion on his children, so Yahweh has compassion on those who fear him.
Psa 103:14 For he knows how we are made. He remembers that we are dust.
Psa 103:15 As for man, his days are like grass. As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
Psa 103:16 For the wind passes over it, and it is gone. Its place remembers it no more.
Psa 103:17 But Yahweh's loving kindness is from everlasting to everlasting with those who fear him, his righteousness to children's children;
Psa 103:18 to those who keep his covenant, to those who remember to obey his precepts.
Psa 103:19 Yahweh has established his throne in the heavens. His kingdom rules over all.
Psa 103:20 Praise Yahweh, you angels of his, who are mighty in strength, who fulfill his word, obeying the voice of his word.
Psa 103:21 Praise Yahweh, all you armies of his, you servants of his, who do his pleasure.
Psa 103:22 Praise Yahweh, all you works of his, in all places of his dominion. Praise Yahweh, my soul!
Psa 104:1 Bless Yahweh, my soul. Yahweh, my God, you are very great. You are clothed with honor and majesty.
Psa 104:2 He covers himself with light as with a garment. He stretches out the heavens like a curtain.
Psa 104:3 He lays the beams of his chambers in the waters. He makes the clouds his chariot. He walks on the wings of the wind.
Psa 104:4 He makes his messengers winds; his servants flames of fire.
Psa 104:5 He laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be moved forever.
Psa 104:6 You covered it with the deep as with a cloak. The waters stood above the mountains.
Psa 104:7 At your rebuke they fled. At the voice of your thunder they hurried away.
Psa 104:8 The mountains rose, the valleys sank down, to the place which you had assigned to them.
Psa 104:9 You have set a boundary that they may not pass over; that they don't turn again to cover the earth.
Psa 104:10 He sends forth springs into the valleys. They run among the mountains.
Psa 104:11 They give drink to every animal of the field. The wild donkeys quench their thirst.
Psa 104:12 The birds of the sky nest by them. They sing among the branches.
Psa 104:13 He waters the mountains from his chambers. The earth is filled with the fruit of your works.
Psa 104:14 He causes the grass to grow for the livestock, and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food out of the earth:
Psa 104:15 wine that makes glad the heart of man, oil to make his face to shine, and bread that strengthens man's heart.
Psa 104:16 Yahweh's trees are well watered, the cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted;
Psa 104:17 where the birds make their nests. The stork makes its home in the fir trees.
Psa 104:18 The high mountains are for the wild goats. The rocks are a refuge for the rock badgers.
Psa 104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons. The sun knows when to set.
Psa 104:20 You make darkness, and it is night, in which all the animals of the forest prowl.
Psa 104:21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their food from God.
Psa 104:22 The sun rises, and they steal away, and lay down in their dens.
Psa 104:23 Man goes forth to his work, to his labor until the evening.
Psa 104:24 Yahweh, how many are your works! In wisdom have you made them all. The earth is full of your riches.
Psa 104:25 There is the sea, great and wide, in which are innumerable living things, both small and large animals.
Psa 104:26 There the ships go, and leviathan, whom you formed to play there.
Psa 104:27 These all wait for you, that you may give them their food in due season.
Psa 104:28 You give to them; they gather. You open your hand; they are satisfied with good.
Psa 104:29 You hide your face: they are troubled; you take away their breath: they die, and return to the dust.
Psa 104:30 You send forth your Spirit: they are created. You renew the face of the ground.
Psa 104:31 Let the glory of Yahweh endure forever. Let Yahweh rejoice in his works.
Psa 104:32 He looks at the earth, and it trembles. He touches the mountains, and they smoke.
Psa 104:33 I will sing to Yahweh as long as I live. I will sing praise to my God while I have any being.
Psa 104:34 Let your meditation be sweet to him. I will rejoice in Yahweh.
Psa 104:35 Let sinners be consumed out of the earth. Let the wicked be no more. Bless Yahweh, my soul. Praise Yah!
2 Corinthians 3
2Co 3:1 Are we beginning again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as do some, letters of commendation to you or from you?
2Co 3:2 You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men;
2Co 3:3 being revealed that you are a letter of Christ, served by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh.
2Co 3:4 Such confidence we have through Christ toward God;
2Co 3:5 not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to account anything as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God;
2Co 3:6 who also made us sufficient as servants of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
2Co 3:7 But if the service of death, written engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the children of Israel could not look steadfastly on the face of Moses for the glory of his face; which was passing away:
2Co 3:8 won't service of the Spirit be with much more glory?
2Co 3:9 For if the service of condemnation has glory, the service of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.
2Co 3:10 For most certainly that which has been made glorious has not been made glorious in this respect, by reason of the glory that surpasses.
2Co 3:11 For if that which passes away was with glory, much more that which remains is in glory.
2Co 3:12 Having therefore such a hope, we use great boldness of speech,
2Co 3:13 and not as Moses, who put a veil on his face, that the children of Israel wouldn't look steadfastly on the end of that which was passing away.
2Co 3:14 But their minds were hardened, for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains, because in Christ it passes away.
2Co 3:15 But to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart.
2Co 3:16 But whenever one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
2Co 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
2Co 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord, the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 4
2Co 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, even as we obtained mercy, we don't faint.
2Co 4:2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by the manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
2Co 4:3 Even if our Good News is veiled, it is veiled in those who perish;
2Co 4:4 in whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the Good News of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn on them.
2Co 4:5 For we don't preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake;
2Co 4:6 seeing it is God who said, "Light will shine out of darkness," who has shone in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves.
2Co 4:8 We are pressed on every side, yet not crushed; perplexed, yet not to despair;
2Co 4:9 pursued, yet not forsaken; struck down, yet not destroyed;
2Co 4:10 always carrying in the body the putting to death of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
2Co 4:11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus may be revealed in our mortal flesh.
2Co 4:12 So then death works in us, but life in you.
2Co 4:13 But having the same spirit of faith, according to that which is written, "I believed, and therefore I spoke." We also believe, and therefore also we speak;
2Co 4:14 knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus, and will present us with you.
2Co 4:15 For all things are for your sakes, that the grace, being multiplied through the many, may cause the thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.
2Co 4:16 Therefore we don't faint, but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day.
2Co 4:17 For our light affliction, which is for the moment, works for us more and more exceedingly an eternal weight of glory;
2Co 4:18 while we don't look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 5
2Co 5:1 For we know that if the earthly house of our tent is dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens.
2Co 5:2 For most certainly in this we groan, longing to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven;
2Co 5:3 if so be that being clothed we will not be found naked.
2Co 5:4 For indeed we who are in this tent do groan, being burdened; not that we desire to be unclothed, but that we desire to be clothed, that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
2Co 5:5 Now he who made us for this very thing is God, who also gave to us the down payment of the Spirit.
2Co 5:6 Therefore, we are always confident and know that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord;
2Co 5:7 for we walk by faith, not by sight.
2Co 5:8 We are of good courage, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be at home with the Lord.
2Co 5:9 Therefore also we make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to be well pleasing to him.
2Co 5:10 For we must all be revealed before the judgment seat of Christ; that each one may receive the things in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
2Co 5:11 Knowing therefore the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are revealed to God; and I hope that we are revealed also in your consciences.
2Co 5:12 For we are not commending ourselves to you again, but speak as giving you occasion of boasting on our behalf, that you may have something to answer those who boast in appearance, and not in heart.
2Co 5:13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God. Or if we are of sober mind, it is for you.
2Co 5:14 For the love of Christ constrains us; because we judge thus, that one died for all, therefore all died.
2Co 5:15 He died for all, that those who live should no longer live to themselves, but to him who for their sakes died and rose again.
2Co 5:16 Therefore we know no one after the flesh from now on. Even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more.
2Co 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.
2Co 5:18 But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Jesus Christ, and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation;
2Co 5:19 namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not reckoning to them their trespasses, and having committed to us the word of reconciliation.
2Co 5:20 We are therefore ambassadors on behalf of Christ, as though God were entreating by us: we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
2Co 5:21 For him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
