Job 39-40 New King James Version (NKJV)
God Continues to Challenge Job
39 “Do you know the time when the wild mountain goats bear young?
5 “Who set the wild donkey free?
9 “Will the wild ox be willing to serve you?
13 “The wings of the ostrich wave proudly,
19 “Have you given the horse strength?
26 “Does the hawk fly by your wisdom,
God’s Power and Wisdom
40 Moreover the Lord answered Job, and said:
2 “Shall the one who contends with the Almighty correct Him?
Job’s Response to God
3 Then Job answered the Lord and said:
4 “Behold, I am vile;
God’s Challenge to Job
6 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:
7 “Now [h]prepare yourself like a man;
8 “Would you indeed [i]annul My judgment?
15 “Look now at the [j]behemoth, which I made along with you;
Psalm 101:1-4 New King James Version (NKJV)
Promised Faithfulness to the Lord
A Psalm of David.
101 I will sing of mercy and justice;
2 I will behave wisely in a [a]perfect way.
3 I will set nothing [b]wicked before my eyes;

Do Not Sue the Brethren
6 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints? 2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life? 4 If then you have [a]judgments concerning things pertaining to this life, do you appoint those who are least esteemed by the church to judge? 5 I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you, not even one, who will be able to judge between his brethren? 6 But brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers!
7 Now therefore, it is already an utter failure for you that you go to law against one another. Why do you not rather accept wrong? Why do you not rather let yourselves be cheated? 8 No, you yourselves do wrong and cheat, and you do these things to your brethren! 9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [b]homosexuals, nor [c]sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were [d]sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
Glorify God in Body and Spirit
12 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not [e]helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of [f]any. 13 Foods for the stomach and the stomach for foods, but God will destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 And God both raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by His power.
15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” 17 But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.
18 Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body [g]and in your spirit, which are God’s.
