Psalm 116-11821st Century King James Version (KJ21)
116 I love the Lord, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications.
2 Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live.
3 The sorrows of death encompassed me, and the pains of hell got hold upon me; I found trouble and sorrow.
4 Then I called upon the name of the Lord: “O Lord, I beseech Thee, deliver my soul!”
5 Gracious is the Lord and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
6 The Lord preserveth the simple; I was brought low, and He helped me.
7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul, for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee.
8 For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
9 I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.
10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: “I was greatly afflicted.”
11 I said in my haste, “All men are liars.”
12 What shall I render unto the Lord for all His benefits toward me?
13 I will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the Lord.
14 I will pay my vows unto the Lord now, in the presence of all His people.
15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.
16 O Lord, truly I am Thy servant; I am Thy servant and the son of Thine handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bonds.
17 I will offer to Thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.
18 I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all His people,
19 in the courts of the Lord’s house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord!
117 O praise the Lord, all ye nations! Praise Him, all ye people!
2 For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord!
118 O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever!
2 Let Israel now say that His mercy endureth for ever.
3 Let the house of Aaron now say that His mercy endureth for ever.
4 Let them that fear the Lord now say that His mercy endureth for ever.
5 I called upon the Lord in distress; the Lord answered me, and set me in an ample place.
6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do unto me?
7 The Lord taketh my part among them that help me; therefore shall I see what I desire upon them that hate me.
8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.
9 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.
10 All the nations compassed me about, but in the name of the Lord will I destroy them.
11 They compassed me about, yea, they compassed me about; but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
12 They compassed me about like bees, they are quenched as the fire of thorns; for in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
13 Thou hast thrust sorely at me that I might fall, but the Lord helped me.
14 The Lord is my strength and song, and has become my salvation.
15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous; the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.
16 The right hand of the Lord is exalted; the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.
17 I shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord.
18 The Lord hath chastened me sorely, but He hath not given me over unto death.
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord”
20 this gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter.
21 I will praise Thee, for Thou hast heard me and art become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders refused has become the head stone of the corner.
23 This is the Lord’S doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now, I beseech Thee, O Lord; O Lord, I beseech Thee, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord! We have blessed you from the house of the Lord.
27 God is the Lord, who hath shown us light; bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.
28 Thou art my God, and I will praise Thee; Thou art my God, I will exalt Thee.
29 O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy endureth for ever!
1 Corinthians 7:1-1921st Century King James Version (KJ21)
7 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2 Nevertheless to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence, and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
4 The wife hath not power over her own body, but the husband; and likewise also the husband hath not power over his own body, but the wife.
5 Defraud ye not one the other, unless it be with consent for a time only, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not through your lack of selfrestraint.
6 But I speak this by permission, and not by commandment.
7 For I would that all men were even as I myself am. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one in this manner and another in that.
8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows: It is good for them if they remain even as I.
9 But if they cannot contain themselves, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn.
10 And unto the married I command (yet not I, but the Lord): let not the wife depart from her husband.
11 But if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband. And let not the husband put away his wife.
12 But to the rest I speak (not the Lord): if any brother hath a wife who believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
13 And the woman who hath a husband who believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband. Else your children would be unclean, but now they are holy.
15 But if the unbelieving spouse depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases, for God hath called us to peace.
16 For how knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? Or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so I ordain in all churches.
18 Is any man called, being circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called, being uncircumcised? Let him not be circumcised.
19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but what matters is the keeping of the commandments of God.
