Psalm 84-8621st Century King James Version (KJ21)
84 How amiable are Thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!
2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
3 Yea, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself where she may lay her young” even Thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.
4 Blessed are they that dwell in Thy house; they will be ever praising Thee. Selah
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in Thee, in whose heart are Thy ways,
6 who passing through the Valley of Baca makes it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
7 They go from strength to strength; every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah
9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of Thine anointed.
10 For a day in Thy courts is better than a thousand; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.
12 O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in Thee!
85 Lord, Thou hast been favorable unto Thy land; Thou hast released the captives of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of Thy people; Thou hast covered all their sin. Selah
3 Thou hast taken away all Thy wrath; Thou hast turned Thyself from the fierceness of Thine anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause Thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt Thou be angry with us for ever? Wilt Thou draw out Thine anger to all generations?
6 Wilt Thou not revive us again, that Thy people may rejoice in Thee?
7 Show us Thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us Thy salvation.
8 I will hear what God the Lord will speak, for He will speak peace unto His people and to His saints; but let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely His salvation is nigh them that fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good, and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before Him, and shall set us in the way of His steps.
86 Bow down Thine ear, O Lord; hear me, for I am poor and needy.
2 Preserve my soul, for I am holy; O Thou my God, save Thy servant that trusteth in Thee.
3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord, for I cry unto Thee daily.
4 Make the soul of Thy servant rejoice, for unto Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5 For Thou, Lord, art good and ready to forgive, and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon Thee.
6 Give ear, O Lord, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon Thee, for Thou wilt answer me.
8 Among the gods there is none like unto Thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto Thy works.
9 All nations whom Thou hast made shall come and worship before Thee, O Lord, and shall glorify Thy name.
10 For Thou art great and doest wondrous things: Thou alone art God.
11 Teach me Thy way, O Lord; I will walk in Thy truth; unite my heart to fear Thy name.
12 I will praise Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Thy name for evermore.
13 For great is Thy mercy toward me, and Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
14 O God, the proud have risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul, and have not set Thee before them.
15 But Thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
16 O turn unto me and have mercy upon me; give Thy strength unto Thy servant, and save the son of Thine handmaid.
17 Show me a token for good, that they that hate me may see it and be ashamed, because Thou, Lord, hast helped me and comforted me.
Romans 1221st Century King James Version (KJ21)
12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
3 For I say to every man that is among you, through the grace given unto me, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body and all members have not the same office,
5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us: if prophecy, let us prophesy according to our portion of faith;
7 or ministry, let us wait on our ministering; or he that teacheth, on teaching;
8 or he that exhorteth, on exhortation; he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
10 Have kindly affection one for another with brotherly love, in honor preferring one another;
11 not slothful in business; fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
12 rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing instant in prayer;
13 distributing to the necessity of saints, given to hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and curse not.
15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Set not your mind on high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
17 Recompense no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath; for it is written: “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay,saith the Lord.”
20 Therefore: “If thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink. For in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”
21 Be not overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
