Psalm chapter 8

1
O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! who have set your glory above the heavens.
2
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings have you ordained strength because of your enemies, that you might still the enemy and the avenger.
3
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;
4
What is man, that you are mindful of him? and the son of man, that you visit him?
5
For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and have crowned him with glory and honor.
6
You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet:
7
All sheep and oxen, yes, and the beasts of the field;
8
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
9
O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!

Psalm chapter 9

1
I will praise you, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will show forth all your marvelous works.
2
I will be glad and rejoice in you: I will sing praise to your name, O you most High.
3
When my enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at your presence.
4
For you have maintained my right and my cause; you sat in the throne judging right.
5
You have rebuked the heathen, you have destroyed the wicked, you have put out their name for ever and ever.
6
O you enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and you have destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
7
But the LORD shall endure for ever: he has prepared his throne for judgment.
8
And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9
The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
10
And they that know your name will put their trust in you: for you, LORD, have not forsaken them that seek you.
11
Sing praises to the LORD, which dwells in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
12
When he makes inquisition for blood, he remembers them: he forgets not the cry of the humble.
13
Have mercy on me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, you that lift me up from the gates of death:
14
That I may show forth all your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in your salvation.
15
The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
16
The LORD is known by the judgment which he executes: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
17
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
18
For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19
Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in your sight.
20
Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

Psalm chapter 10

1
Why stand you afar off, O LORD? why hide you yourself in times of trouble?
2
The wicked in his pride does persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
3
For the wicked boasts of his heart' desire, and blesses the covetous, whom the LORD abhors.
4
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
5
His ways are always grievous; your judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffs at them.
6
He has said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.
7
His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
8
He sits in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places does he murder the innocent: his eyes are privately set against the poor.
9
He lies in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lies in wait to catch the poor: he does catch the poor, when he draws him into his net.
10
He crouches, and humbles himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
11
He has said in his heart, God has forgotten: he hides his face; he will never see it.
12
Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up your hand: forget not the humble.
13
Why does the wicked scorn God? he has said in his heart, You will not require it.
14
You have seen it; for you behold mischief and spite, to requite it with your hand: the poor commits himself to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.
15
Break you the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till you find none.
16
The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
17
LORD, you have heard the desire of the humble: you will prepare their heart, you will cause your ear to hear:
18
To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.

Psalm chapter 11

1
In the LORD put I my trust: how say you to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
2
For, see, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow on the string, that they may privately shoot at the upright in heart.
3
If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
4
The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD' throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
5
The LORD tries the righteous: but the wicked and him that loves violence his soul hates.
6
On the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
7
For the righteous LORD loves righteousness; his countenance does behold the upright.

Psalm chapter 12

1
Help, LORD; for the godly man ceases; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
2
They speak vanity every one with his neighbor: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
3
The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaks proud things:
4
Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?
5
For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, said the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffs at him.
6
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7
You shall keep them, O LORD, you shall preserve them from this generation for ever.
8
The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.

Psalm chapter 13

1
How long will you forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long will you hide your face from me?
2
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
3
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4
Lest my enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
5
But I have trusted in your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
6
I will sing to the LORD, because he has dealt bountifully with me.

Psalm chapter 14

1
The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good.
2
The LORD looked down from heaven on the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
3
They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that does good, no, not one.
4
Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not on the LORD.
5
There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6
You have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
7
Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD brings back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

Mark chapter 13

1
And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
2
And Jesus answering said to him, See you these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone on another, that shall not be thrown down.
3
And as he sat on the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
4
Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
5
And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
6
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
7
And when you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, be you not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
8
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
9
But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues you shall be beaten: and you shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
10
And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
11
But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what you shall speak, neither do you premeditate: but whatever shall be given you in that hour, that speak you: for it is not you that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
12
Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
13
And you shall be hated of all men for my name' sake: but he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.
14
But when you shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that reads understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
15
And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:
16
And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
17
But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
18
And pray you that your flight be not in the winter.
19
For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created to this time, neither shall be.
20
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect' sake, whom he has chosen, he has shortened the days.
21
And then if any man shall say to you, See, here is Christ; or, see, he is there; believe him not:
22
For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
23
But take you heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
24
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
25
And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
26
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
27
And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
28
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near:
29
So you in like manner, when you shall see these things come to pass, know that it is near, even at the doors.
30
Truly I say to you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
31
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
32
But of that day and that hour knows no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
33
Take you heed, watch and pray: for you know not when the time is.
34
For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
35
Watch you therefore: for you know not when the master of the house comes, at even, or at midnight, or at the cock-crowing, or in the morning:
36
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
37
And what I say to you I say to all, Watch.
