Psalm 16-17 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
16 Preserve me, O God, for in Thee do I put my trust.
2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, “Thou art my Lord; my goodness extendeth not to Thee,
3 but to the saints that are on the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.”
4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied, that hasten after another god; their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names upon my lips.
5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup; Thou maintainest my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
7 I will bless the Lord who hath given me counsel; my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
8 I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoiceth; my flesh also shall rest in hope.
10 For Thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt Thou suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption.
11 Thou wilt show me the path of life; in Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
17 Hear the right, O Lord; attend unto my cry! Give ear unto my prayer, which goeth not out of feigned lips.
2 Let my sentence come forth from Thy presence; let Thine eyes behold things with equity.
3 Thou hast tested mine heart; Thou hast visited me in the night; Thou hast tried me and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of Thy lips I have been kept from the paths of the destroyer.
5 Uphold my goings in Thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
6 I have called upon Thee, for Thou wilt hear me, O God; incline Thine ear unto me and hear my speaking.
7 Show Thy marvelous lovingkindness, O Thou that savest by Thy right hand them that put their trust in Thee from those that rise up against them.
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye; hide me under the shadow of Thy wings,
9 from the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies who compass me about.
10 They are enclosed in their own fat; with their mouth they speak proudly.
11 They have now encompassed us in our steps; they have set their eyes, bowing down to the earth,
12 like a lion that is greedy for his prey, even as a young lion lurking in secret places.
13 Arise, O Lord, disappoint them! Cast them down; deliver my soul from the wicked by Thy sword,
14 from men which are Thy hand, O Lord, from men of the world that have their portion in this life, and whose belly Thou fillest with Thy hid treasure: They are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
15 As for me, I will behold Thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness.
Acts 20:1-16 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
20 And after the uproar had ceased, Paul called unto him the disciples, and embraced them, and departed to go into Macedonia.
2 And when he had gone through those parts and had given them much exhortation, he came into Greece.
3 And there he abode three months. And when the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail for Syria, he purposed to return through Macedonia.
4 And there accompanied him into Asia, Sopater of Berea, and Aristarchus and Secundus of the Thessalonians, and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy; and from Asia, Tychichus and Trophimus.
5 These, going ahead, tarried for us at Troas.
6 And we sailed away from Philippi after the Days of Unleavened Bread and came unto them in five days at Troas, where we stayed seven days.
7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow, and continued his speech until midnight.
8 And there were many lights in the upper chamber where they were gathered together.
9 And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, having fallen into a deep sleep; and as Paul was long in preaching, he sank down with sleep and fell down from the third floor and was taken up dead.
10 And Paul went down and fell on him and, embracing him, said, “Trouble not yourselves, for his life is in him.”
11 When he therefore had come up again, and had broken bread and eaten and talked for a long while, even until break of day, he departed.
12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.
13 And we went ahead to the ship and sailed for Assos, there intending to take aboard Paul; for so had he arranged, intending himself to go on foot.
14 And when he met with us at Assos, we took him on board and came to Mitylene.
15 And we sailed thence and arrived the next day off Chios; and the next day we arrived at Samos and tarried at Trogyllium; and the next day we came to Miletus.
16 For Paul had determined to sail past Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia; for he was in haste, that it might be possible for him to be at Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost.
