Today's Text:

Psalms 12: kjv


(1) Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
(2) They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
(3) The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh 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, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.
(6) The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
(7) Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
(8) The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.

  9. *"Help, LORD; for the Godly Man Ceaseth":* 12:1 The Faithful Disappear - Conclusion 12:
  10. Ephesians 5:1-21 kjv


    (1) Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
    (2) And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
    (3) But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
    (4) Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
    (5) For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
    (6) Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
    (7) Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
    (8) For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
    (9) (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
    (10) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
    (11) And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
    (12) For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
    (13) But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
    (14) Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
    (15) See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
    (16) Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
    (17) Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
    (18) And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
    (19) Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
    (20) Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
    (21) Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

    Psalms 12:1 kjv


    (1) Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
