The Fullness of the Gospel: the Father’s Salvation Plan

The Fullness of the Gospel: the Father’s Salvation Plan

The Opening Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Bless us that we may know and do Thy works, that thy kingdom may come among us, and that Thy will be done on earth, as it is done in heaven. We ask Thee only to give us this day our daily bread that we may have the strength to do Thy works.

And forgive us our trespasses against Thy will, only as we forgive those who have trespassed against us. And suffer us not to be led into temptation, but deliver us from the evil of this world and the works that we do therein, And help us always to do Thy will and keep Thy commandments; for Yours is the kingdom and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Prayer and Psalm of Forgiveness

Psalm 51

1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. [3] For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. [4] Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

5 Behold, I was shapened in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. [6] Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. [7] Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. [9] Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. [10] Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. [11] Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation and uphold me with thy free spirit. [13] Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. [14] Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. [16] For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. [17] The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem. [19] Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.


We Will Now Pray The Prayer of Daniel Which He Prayed While Seeking the Father in Chapter 9 of His Writings.

O Father, the great and dreadful Elohim, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;

We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:

Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

O Hear us Father in Heaven

Father, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.

O Father, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee. To the Father our Elohim belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;

Neither have we obeyed the voice of the Father our Elohim, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.

Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of Elohim because we have sinned against him.

And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.

As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil has come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the Father our Elohim, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.

Therefore hath the Father watched upon the evil and brought it upon us: for the Father, our Elohim is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.

And now, O Father our Elohim, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and has gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.

O Father, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let Your anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us.

Now, therefore, O our Elohim, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for Your Son’s sake.

O my Elohim, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.

O our Creator, hear; O our Father Creator, forgive; O our Father Creator, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my Elohim: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.

Let us Now Have The Reading of the Royal Covenant

2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. 7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

Moses and the sons of Kohath

11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. 12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

13 Thou shalt not kill. 14 Thou shalt not commit adultery. 15 Thou shalt not steal. 16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. 17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is thy neighbor’s.

This is summed up in the law and commandment; Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like, unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. This is the ROYAL COVENANT of the LORD AHAYAH YAHAWAH Between Him and His People, the children of Israel and all nations with them!

This is the reading of the Holy Royal Covenant and the Acceptance of the Holy Endowment of the Holy Order. Praise ye the Sovereign Lord of Hosts

Reading of the Teachings of the Holy Anointed One from Matthew Chapter 5

1 AND seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain to teach unto them the things which the Father had commanded of him; and when he was set in the place where he would teach the people, he called forth his disciples and they came unto him that they might hear more clearly the things that he would command the people so that they could teach these same things unto the people as they had been given authority to do.

2 And after he had presented his disciples before the people, he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, Blessed are ye if ye shall give heed unto the words of these twelve whom I have chosen from among you to minister unto you, and to be your servants; and unto them, I have given authority that they may baptize you with water if ye repent and believe on the things which I shall give unto you from my Father; and after that, ye are baptized with water, which is the covenant ye shall make before Elohim that ye shall do the things which I shall command you this day; behold, I will baptize you with fire and with the Holy Ghost, which shall cause you to know that the things that I shall give unto you are true. And this fire shall burn within you, giving you a remission of your sins by the peace that ye shall find in your souls. For ye are poor in spirit and seek for the kingdom of heaven. And it is this kingdom that I shall give unto you this day.

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit who come unto me and learn that which the Father hath given me for them; for their spirits shall be filled and they shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 And again, blessed are they that mourn because they seek for more righteousness, but cannot find it in the doctrines and precepts of men which they have been given; for they shall be comforted by the words which I give unto them this day.

5 Blessed are the meek who seek to do the will of the Father in all things; for they shall inherit the earth that hath been prepared for them.

6 And blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness in meekness and lowliness of heart; for they shall be filled with the Holy Ghost who shall teach them all things. 7 And blessed are the merciful who love others and extend to them no judgment for what they do, which is evil; for they shall obtain mercy for that which they do, which is evil.

8 And blessed are all the pure in heart who in righteousness seek to know Elohim and His ways, that they might understand truth, and not to consume it upon their lusts as do they who are impure; behold, they shall know Elohim.

9 And blessed are the peacemakers who contend with no man over doctrine. Yea, these shall come to know the true doctrine, and then they shall be called the children of Elohim.

10 And blessed are they which are persecuted and mocked by others because of their righteous works; for they shall find their peace and happiness in the kingdom of heaven.

11 And blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, because of that which ye do for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad in your persecutions and afflictions; for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you, who I sent unto the people to teach them these things; for your reward shall be given you from heaven by receiving peace and comfort from the Spirit of Elohim.

13 Ye are the salt of the earth, even as ye are given as examples unto all men of the peace that ye receive from the Father; but if the salt hath lost its savor, wherewith shall the earth be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out again into the earth from whence it came, and to be trodden under foot by men. For the Father will not have those whom He hath chosen to give a false example of Him.

14 I am the light of the world that the Father hath given unto the world that lieth in darkness. And he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. And ye have been given me of the Father, therefore, ye also are the light of the world; and with the light that the Father hath given unto us, we shall be as a city of lights set on a hill that giveth light unto all the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden because it is in the view of all the world. Therefore, men who have received light cannot hide it from the world.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and make a measure of that light unto others by putting it under a bushel, for the light cannot be measured to any man in a portion; but he putteth it on a candlestick so that all may partake equally thereof, and it shall give light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before all men by the good works that ye do because of the light that the Father hath given unto you; that they might see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law that hath already been given you of Moses, or of the prophets who have come before me. I am not come to destroy the law or the prophecies, but to fulfill them every wit. For behold, the law of Moses and the prophets pointed all men to me, giving in darkness what ye now see in the light.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, if it were possible, not one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law which hath been given till all be fulfilled. For this is the law and the prophets, even all the commandments that have been given by the Father: that ye should worship Elohim with all your heart, might, mind, and soul by keeping His commandments; and this is His commandments, that ye do unto others what ye would have them do unto you. And there shall be no more law given except those commandments that I give unto you this day.

19 Whosoever, therefore, shall break any of these commandments that I give unto you, and shall teach men to do so by his example, he shall in no wise be saved in the kingdom of heaven, for these commandments is the law that ye shall also keep there; but whosoever shall do these commandments of the law until it be fulfilled and teach them, the same shall be called great and be saved in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. For the scribes and Pharisees sit in the seat of Moses and teach the commandments, but they do not abide by them, and by their example teach many to break these commandments; therefore, I have said unto you, that whosoever shall do these commandments and teach them shall be saved in the kingdom of heaven. And behold, I shall give unto you the law and the commandments of my Father, that ye shall believe in me, and that ye shall repent of your sins, and come unto me with a broken heart and a contrite spirit. Behold, ye have the commandments already before you, and ye must now know that in me is the law fulfilled. Therefore come unto me and be ye saved; for verily I say unto you, that except ye shall keep my commandments, which I have been commanded to give unto you at this time, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven.

21 Behold, ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill, and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment; and this is the law that the scribes and Pharisees teach unto you, and which they do not understand; for they have said, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, and that ye shall stone and kill those who violate the law. But wherein shall the commandment be fulfilled if ye kill him who hath killed? Are not ye both then of the same sin?

22 But I say unto you, he that killeth in any manner and for whatever reason lieth in sin; and whosoever is angry with his brother for any reason shall be in danger of the same judgment, because the anger in his heart might lead to the death of his brother; and whosoever shall hold his brother in contempt or ridicule shall be in danger of the law that hath been given by the council which rendereth the law; but whosoever shall say to his brother for any reason, Thou fool, shall be in danger of a hell-like unto fire, which shall burn in his soul because of that which he thinkest of his brother.

23 Therefore if thou presentest thyself at the altar as a righteous offering to Elohim, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee because of that which thou hast done unto him;

24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way until thou canst offer up a gift in righteousness; and before thou offerest thyself as a gift to Elohim, first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

25 Yea, be kind to thy brother and respect the opinion of he who disagrees with thee and considereth thee his adversary, whiles thou art still in his good graces, that thou might remain in the way with him; lest at any time he who considereth thee an adversary causeth thee to sin; for in whatsoever sin thou shalt be found, thou shalt be delivered to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

26 For I am thy righteous judge, and by my words, shalt thou be judged; and if it so be that thou hast offended thy brother in anger, thou shalt not be delivered from the anguish of thy soul until thou hast suffered for that which thou has done. This is the state in which thou shalt find thyself in the kingdom of my Father, and this state is like unto a prison. Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

27 Behold, ye have heard that it was said by your leaders that they of old time commanded, Thou shalt not commit adultery; but the scribes and Pharisees have given you their unrighteous example in this thing, because they look upon women and lust after them, having many concubines and wives, justifying their wickedness by them of old time;

28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart; therefore, your leaders have caused you to err because of their examples. Ye look at them as your guides who have eyes that see for you, and hands that do for you that which ye believe Elohim hath commanded of them.

29 For ye have seen of the Jews that those who are their leaders, who lead them and are their standard, do mislead them and cause them to sin before the Father and disobey His commandments. And it is better that a man have no leader than being led into the same hell with his leader whom he hath made his standard. And if thine eye which seeth for thee, even him that is appointed to watch over thee to show thee light, becometh a transgressor and offend thee, pluck him out. For it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of Elohim, with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. For it is better that thyself should be saved than to be cast into hell with thy leaders where their worm dieth not, and where the fire is not quenched.

30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it also off, and cast it from thee; for the works that thy leaders do by their unrighteous example causeth thee to stumble in darkness; for it is more profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, in that thou leavest those who do the works of Elohim for thee, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement, and this they have said to justify the lust that they have for another woman who is not their wife, thinking that with a divorcement, they shall be free of sin;

32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife so that he might be justified in the lust of his heart and his fornication, hath committed adultery and is not free from sin because of the covenant that he made with his wife; and whosoever shall marry her that is not divorced committeth adultery. And this I say because your leaders justify themselves in their lust for women who are not their wives but condemn those caught in fornication, who are not married by their laws.

33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them that they of old time commanded, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Almighty thine oaths; and this they have said unto you that they might keep you in bondage to them who have set themselves upon the throne of Elohim.

34 But I say unto you, make no oaths to any man and forswear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is Elohim’s throne upon which only He can perform His oaths, and your leaders cannot perform His oaths in unrighteousness upon this earth;

35 Nor should ye forswear yourselves by the earth; for it is his footstool where His oaths shall be fulfilled even as I am here to fulfill them; neither should ye forswear yourselves by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King, who is not of heaven, but is here now upon the earth to fulfill all things sworn by the Father.

36 Neither shalt thou by thy head commit thyself to any matter because thou canst not make one hair of thy head white or black.

37 But let your communication among each other be Yea, yea, this I can do; or, Nay, nay, this I cannot do; for whatsoever is more than these can cause evil.

38 And again, ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth, doing unto another what he hath done unto you.

39 But I say unto you, That ye shall not resist this evil that another doeth unto you, because I have commanded you to do unto another what ye would want him to do unto you; and ye would not want to lose an eye if yours was taken; or a tooth if one was lost by the hand of another; but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also that he might see thy love for him and stop that which he doeth unto thee.

40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, do not fight for that which he desireth of thee, but let him have thy cloak also.

41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain, showing that your love is greater than the vengeance of him who compels thee to do a thing against thy will.

42 If thou hast that which thou canst give, then give to him that asketh of thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away lest he esteems thee as his enemy.

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said of your leaders that ye shall love your neighbor who is like unto you and believeth as ye believe and that ye should hate your enemy and cast him out from among you, even he that doth not believe as ye believe, that ye be not misled by the hand of an enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may become the children of your Father who is in heaven, who is no respecter of

persons; for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust—all being His beloved children.

46 For if ye love only them who love you, what reward have ye of your Father in heaven? Do not even the publicans do the same? And ye know that they are wicked, yet your Father loveth them still.

47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than the others who ye condemn as sinners? Do not even the publicans so salute only those who are their friends?

48 Behold, those things which were of old time, which were under the law that ye have been taught by your leaders, in me are all fulfilled. And for this reason hath the Father sent me to you, that ye might repent and do the works that I have commanded you to do, and follow the example that I have given unto you, that ye might, therefore, be commanded to be perfect in the love that ye have one for another, even as your Father which is in heaven hath a perfect love for you.

Continuing into Matthew Chapter 6

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them and receive the honor and praise of the world; otherwise, ye have no need for a reward of your Father which is in heaven, which He shall give unto you, not as the honors of men are given, but by the peace of His Spirit.

2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward, for it is given them of men from whom they desire it.

3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth; for if thou givest of unrighteousness, by that which thou doest with thy left hand, to receive the glory of men, then thy righteous act, which thou doest of thy right, shall not be acceptable as a righteous offering to thy Father; for thou dost not do this thing for the benefit of another as thou would want another to do so to thee, but thou doest this to be seen and rewarded openly by men.

4 Therefore, so that thine alms may be in secret and for the benefit of he who receiveth of thy alms, let not thy left arm of unrighteousness influence the secret work of thy right arm; and thy Father who seeth in secret, Himself shall reward thee openly.

5 And when thou prayest, be thou not as the hypocrites are when they pray out loud to be heard of another; for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have the reward that they seek.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into the closet of thy heart, where others cannot hear thee, and when thou hast shut thine own door to be alone in the Spirit, pray to thy Father who seeth in secret; and thy Father who seeth in secret shall reward thee openly through the ministrations of the Spirit.

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do in sackcloth and ashes upon the ground; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking; and they ask according to their wants and their needs, demanding of the Father that which they should not.

8 Be not ye, therefore, like unto them who ask according to their needs and wants; for your, Father knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask Him. And if ye ask for that which is not the will of the Father, then ye ask amiss and shall not receive as the Father would give unto you according to His own will; ye, therefore, fight the will of Elohim and grieve the Spirit.

9 After this manner, therefore, pray ye always that ye be not led into temptation: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Bless us that we may know and do Thy works, that thy kingdom may come among us, and that Thy will be done on earth, as it is done in heaven.

11 We ask Thee only to give us this day our daily bread that we may have the strength to do Thy works.

Out of Galilee Ariseth No Prophet

12 And forgive us our trespasses against Thy will, only as we forgive those who have trespassed against us.

13 And suffer us not to be led into temptation, but deliver us from the evil of this world and the works that we do therein, And help us always to do Thy will and keep Thy commandments; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you by giving you the fruits that ye deserve of the Spirit.

15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither can your Father forgive your trespasses.

16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, who pretend to be of a sad countenance; for they disfigure their faces so that it may appear that they sacrifice much of the flesh, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head in remembrance of the commandments of the Father, and keep them, that thou might keep thyself unspotted from the world; and wash thy face and be of a happy countenance, that thou appear not unto men to fast.

18 But unto thy Father, who seeth in secret, thou shalt present thyself unspotted and clean from the sins of this world; and thy Father, who seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly for the works which thou hast done.

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon this earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal the treasures of your hearts, which are the desires that ye have.

20 But lay up for yourselves these treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal;

21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

22 But that which bringeth forth light into the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single to the glory of Elohim, thy whole body shall be full of light, for that light which ye shall see is given of the Father, and how great is that light.

23 But if thine eye is evil, then it shall be shut up against the light, and thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore thou hast shut thine eyes to the light, then that which is in thee is darkness, and how great is that darkness!

24 And it came to pass that Yashaya (Jesus) spoke to his disciples of that which would be required of them when they went forth to teach the people his gospel. And he spoke, saying, Behold, it is impossible for a man to serve two masters and be equally loyal to each; for either he will hate the one more than the other; or else he will hold fast to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve Elohim and mammon.

25 And, again, I say unto you, go ye into the world, and care not for the world; for the world will hate you, and will persecute you as it does me, and will turn you out of their synagogues. Nevertheless, ye shall go forth from house to house, teaching the people; and I will go before you. And your heavenly Father will provide for you, whatsoever things ye need for food, what ye shall eat; and for raiment, what ye shall wear or put on. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life that I have offered unto you of the Spirit more than the meat that ye eat to sustain your life; and the body, is it more than raiment for your spirit? If the Father hath given you your spirit and feedeth it, shall He not also provide for its raiment?

26 Behold the fowls of the air, which were also created by your Father; for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye who are in His service not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought of himself can add one cubit unto his own stature? Yet, your Father can add that which He desireth to your body, which houses the spirit He loveth and hath created in His own image.

28 And I have said that this body is only raiment for this spirit; Therefore, why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin to provide raiment for their body;

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed by the Father like one of these. But Solomon was arrayed in raiment of his own hand, choosing to cover his body as the grass covereth the field and choketh the lilies arrayed in the glory of Elohim.

30 Wherefore, if Elohim so clothes the lilies, and suffereth that the grass of the field covereth them; and that same grass which today is, tomorrow shall be cast into the oven; how much more will he not provide for you, if ye are not of little faith and keep your eye single to the glory of Elohim?

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek that they might live without Elohim;) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 Therefore, seek not the things of this world, but seek ye first to build up the kingdom of Elohim, and to establish his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow and that which shall come to pass; for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Therefore, teach “this” people that they should fast and pray always as I have commanded you that ye be not led into the temptations and evil of the day.

The Kingdom of God Focus

Continued teaching into Matthew 7

1 BEHOLD, the temptations of the flesh cause “this” people to judge one another, and anger and strife enter into their hearts, therefore they sin and keep not the great commandment that I have given unto you. Therefore, teach “this” people, saying, Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge another, ye shall be judged of the same. Behold, ye should discern that which is good and that which is evil but make this judgment in righteousness according to the commandments I have given you of the Father. For which one of you, being evil, can set a measure of righteousness for another? With the measure of righteousness that I have given you, ye shall judge the actions of another, and with this measure that ye mete, it shall be measured to you again when the Son of Man cometh in his glory.

3 And many times thy brother might not see clearly because of his blindness that hath been caused by his traditions and beliefs. And again, ye shall say unto them, Why is it that thou beholdest the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull the mote out of thine eye so that thou might see more clearly the measure of the Almighty; and canst not behold, a beam is in thine own eye because neither do ye see clearly nor do ye understand the true measure of the Father?

5 And Yashaya (Jesus) said unto his disciples, Beholdest thou the Scribes, and the Pharisees, and the Priests, and the Levites? They teach in their synagogues but do not observe the law and the commandments, and all have gone out of the way, and are under sin. Go thou and say unto them, Why teach ye men the law and the commandments, when ye yourselves are the children of corruption? Say unto them, Ye hypocrites first cast out the beam out of thine own eye by learning of me and keeping the commandments that I have given unto thee, and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye and twain ye shall enter into my rest.

6 Go ye into the world, saying unto all, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven hath come nigh unto you. And the mysteries of the kingdom ye shall keep within yourselves; for it is not meet to give that which holy unto the dogs; neither cast ye your pearls unto swine, lest they trample them under their feet. When ye have learned these things and keep them, then ye shall receive the Holy Ghost who shall teach you the mysteries of Elohim and all things necessary for your salvation. For the world cannot receive that which ye, yourselves, are not able to bear; therefore ye shall not give your pearls unto them, lest they turn again and rend you.

7 And when they shall approach you and seek out your pearls, ye shall not give them unto them but shall say unto them, Ask of Elohim, and it shall be given you according to the heed that ye give to His commandments; seek to do the will of Elohim and not your own will, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you according to the desire that ye have in approaching Elohim to receive of Him. And if ye knock in vain to consume it upon your lusts, then He shall not open unto you, and the door to an understanding of His mysteries shall be closed before you.

8 For every one that asketh in righteousness receiveth in righteousness; and he that seeketh in righteousness, findeth in righteousness; and to him that knocketh in righteousness with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, the mysteries of the kingdom shall be opened up unto him.

9 And then said his disciples unto him: They will say unto us, We are righteous, and need not that any man should teach us. Elohim, we know; we have heard Moses and accept his laws for salvation, and the prophets have been given us from whom we hear the word of Elohim; but to us, Elohim will not hear or speak. And they will say, We have the law for our salvation, and that is sufficient for us.

10 Then Yashaya (Jesus) answered and said unto his disciples, Thus shall ye say unto them, What man among you, having a son, and he shall be standing out, and shall say, Father, open thy house that I may come in and sup with thee, will not say, Come in, my son; for mine is thine, and thine is mine?

11 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son asks bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him in righteousness? But if ye ask not in righteousness, then He cannot give to you of righteousness. And I have given unto you the standard by which ye shall measure your righteousness. And this is the standard and law taught by all the holy prophets.

12 Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them as I have commanded you; for this is the law and the prophets and the gate by which ye shall enter the kingdom of Elohim.

13 Yea, enter ye in at the strait gate that leadeth to salvation: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; for they do not unto others what they would have others do unto them, and they shall not enter through the gate into the kingdom of Elohim.

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Behold, they do not find it because they are led by the precepts and doctrines of men that teach them to trust in the arm of flesh; yea, they are led down the broad way, through the wide gate that is easy to enter, because there are those who claim that they know the way, but do not, who show them the gate.

15 Beware of these false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves, who sneak in among the flock to devour the souls of men by placing them under their authority that they might get praise and gain.

16 Be not, therefore, deceived by men. For any that come among you and add to or take away from that which I have given you this day, and who seek for gain or glory by teaching these things unto you, are those whose fruit is corrupt. Behold, ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles?

17 Even so, every good tree bringeth forth good fruit in abundance; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. And the fruit of a good tree bringeth forth the fruits of the spirit, which cause a man to love one another and do unto another that which he would have done unto him. And an evil tree causeth a man to set himself above another, and hate another, and causeth strife and contention, and all things contrary to the Spirit of Elohim.

19 And when the Son of man cometh in his glory to prune the vineyard of the Father, every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit shall be hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them; yea, even by the way that they keep these commandments that the Father hath given unto me to give to you, that ye might go forth among them and prepare them to enter the kingdom of heaven.

21 And not every one that saith unto me, Master, Master, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven. For this reason came I into the world, that all men might come unto me and be saved by the commandments that I give unto them. And these commandments are that which will prepare them to live in the kingdom of the Father.

22 And the Son of man shall come to judge each man according to the way that he hath treated his fellowman. And at that day many will say to me, Master, Master, have we not prophesied in thy name and taught the people the things that they should do to be saved in thy name? And in thy name have we not cast out devils? And in thy name have we not done many wonderful works that glorify thee?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you; for I did not require any of these things at your hands; and the glory that ye gave unto me, was that glory that ye sought for yourselves; for there is but one Elohim, and He only did I command that ye should glorify, by keeping His commandments. And this ye should have done and not left the other undone; even that which I commanded you to do, ye did not do; for behold, I commanded that ye should love one another and that ye should do unto one that which ye would have him do unto you; and of these things ye did none; therefore, depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who buildeth his house upon a rock; behold, I am this rock, and upon this rock will I gather all those who come unto me and hear the things that I have taught unto them this day, and who keep these sayings of mine. Behold, this is my doctrine, and whoso buildeth upon this buildeth upon my rock, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against them.

25 And whoso shall declare more or less than this, and establish it for my doctrine, the same cometh of evil, and is not built upon my rock. Therefore, build a house upon my rock, and the rain shall descend, and the floods shall come, and the winds shall blow, and beat upon that house; and it shall not fall; for it is founded upon this rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand, who said to himself, the rock is too hard to build upon, but this sand is soft and shall provide me with more comfort;

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell because its foundation was soft and not founded upon a rock. And the foundation was washed away by the torrents of storms that cometh forth out of the earth; and because the foundation was washed away, the house fell, and great was the fall of it.

28 And it came to pass when Yashaya (Jesus) had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine and the simplicity of the things that he taught unto them; for the scribes and Pharisees taught the people to believe in their doctrine and perform those things which were required of them by the law of Moses by the church which gave them their authority.

29 But Yashaya (Jesus) taught them as one having no authority of the church, but as one who received his authority from Elohim, and not as the scribes and Pharisees of the church.

Historical Readings of the Works of Elohim to the Children of Israel

1 Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:

3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.

4 We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.

5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:

6 That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:

7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:

8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.

9 The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.

10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;

11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.

12 Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.

13 He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.

14 In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.

15 He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths.

16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.

17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.

18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.

19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?

20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?

21 Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;

22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:

23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,

24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.

25 Man did eat angels’ food: he sent them meat to the full.

26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.

27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:

28 And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.

29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;

30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,

31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.

32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.

33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.

34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God.

35 And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.

36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.

37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.

38 But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.

39 For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.

40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!

41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.

42 They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy.

43 How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan:

44 And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.

45 He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.

46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust.

47 He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.

48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.

49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.

50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;

51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham:

52 But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

53 And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.

54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.

55 He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.

56 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies:

57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.

58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.

59 When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel: 60 So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men;

61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy’s hand.

62 He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.

63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.

64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.

65 Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.

66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.

67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:

68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.

69 And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath established for ever. 70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:

71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.

72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.

Praise and Worship of the Father and Christ the King from the Psalms

Psalm 147

1 Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.

2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.

3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.*

4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.

5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.

6 The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.

7 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:

8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.

9 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.

10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.

11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.

12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.

13 For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.

14 He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.

15 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.

16 He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.

17 He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?

18 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow. 19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.

20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.

Psalm 148

1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.

2 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. 3 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. 5 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.

6 He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass. 7 Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps: 8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word:

9 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:

10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl: 11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:

12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:

13 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven. 14 He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.

Psalm 149

1 Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.

2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;

7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

Psalm 150

1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.

2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.

3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.

Prayer of the Law and Love of Elohim

1 Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.

Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.

Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.

O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!

Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.

Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.

11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

12 Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes.

13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.

15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

17 Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.

18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.

20 My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.

21 Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.

22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.

23 Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.

24 Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors.

25 My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.

26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.

27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.

28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.

29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.

30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.

31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O Lord, put me not to shame.

32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.

33 Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.

34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

35 Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.

36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.

37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.

38 Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.

39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.

40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.

41 Let thy mercies come also unto me, O Lord, even thy salvation, according to thy word.

42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.

43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.

44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.

45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.

46 I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.

47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.

48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.

49 Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.

50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.

51 The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from thy law.

52 I remembered thy judgments of old, O Lord; and have comforted myself.

53 Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law.

54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.

55 I have remembered thy name, O Lord, in the night, and have kept thy law.

56 This I had, because I kept thy precepts.

57 Thou art my portion, O Lord: I have said that I would keep thy words.

58 I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.

59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.

60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.

61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not forgotten thy law.

62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.

63 I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.

64 The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.

65 Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O Lord, according unto thy word.

66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.

67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.

68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.

69 The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.

70 Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.

71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

72 The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.

73 Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.

74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.

75 I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.

76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.

77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight.

78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.

79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies.

80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.

81 My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.

82 Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?

83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget thy statutes.

84 How many are the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?

85 The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law.

86 All thy commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help thou me.

87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy precepts.

88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.

89 For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.

90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.

91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants.

92 Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.

93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.

94 I am thine, save me: for I have sought thy precepts.

95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.

96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.

97 O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.

99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.

100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.

101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.

102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.

103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.

107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O Lord, according unto thy word.

108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord, and teach me thy judgments.

109 My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.

110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.

111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.

112 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.

113 I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.

114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.

115 Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God.

116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.

117 Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.

118 Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes: for their deceit is falsehood.

119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.

120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.

121 I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.

122 Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.

123 Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.

124 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.

125 I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.

126 It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law.

127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.

128 Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.

129 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.

130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.

132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.

133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.

135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.

136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.

137 Righteous art thou, O Lord, and upright are thy judgments.

138 Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.

139 My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.

140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

141 I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.

142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy commandments are my delights.

144 The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.

145 I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O Lord: I will keep thy statutes.

146 I cried unto thee; save me, and I shall keep thy testimonies.

147 I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy word.

148 Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word.

149 Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O Lord, quicken me according to thy judgment.

150 They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from thy law.

151 Thou art near, O Lord; and all thy commandments are truth.

152 Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.

153 Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.

154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.

155 Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes.

156 Great are thy tender mercies, O Lord: quicken me according to thy judgments.

157 Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.

158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.

159 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O Lord, according to thy lovingkindness.

160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

161 Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.

162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.

163 I hate and abhor lying: but thy law do I love.

164 Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.

165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

166 Lord, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy commandments.

167 My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them exceedingly.

168 I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies: for all my ways are before thee.

169 Let my cry come near before thee, O Lord: give me understanding according to thy word.

170 Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy word.

171 My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy statutes.

172 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

173 Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.

174 I have longed for thy salvation, O Lord; and thy law is my delight.

175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.

176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.

Benediction and Closing Prayer

24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: 25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: 26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. 27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.

 This is all the Creator of Israel and His Christ, His Majesty Requires of us:

He hath showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
