Perfect peace

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST. LUKE.
CHAPTER 10:

38 ¶ Now it came to pass, as they went,
that he entered into a certain village: and a
certain woman named Martha received
him into her house.
39 And she had a sister called Mary,
which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his
word.
40 But Martha was cumbered about much
serving, and came to him, and said, Lord,
dost thou not care that my sister hath left
me to serve alone? bid her therefore that
she help me.
41 And Jesus answered and said unto her,
Martha, Martha, thou art careful and
troubled about many things:
42 But one thing is needful: and Mary
hath chosen that good part, which shall
not be taken away from her.

CHAPTER 6:

4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is
one LORD:
5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God
with all thine heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy might.
6 And these words, which I command thee
this day, shall be in thine heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently
unto thy children, and shalt talk of them
when thou sittest in thine house, and when
thou walkest by the way, and when thou
liest down, and when thou risest up.
8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign
upon thine hand, and they shall be as
frontlets between thine eyes.
9 And thou shalt write them upon the
posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

CHAPTER 6:

20 ¶ My son, keep thy father’s
commandment, and forsake not the law of
thy mother:
21 Bind them continually upon thine
heart, and tie them about thy neck.
22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee;
when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and
when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.
23 For the commandment is a lamp; and
the law is light; and reproofs of instruction
are the way of life:

CHAPTER 26:

3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee: because he
trusteth in thee.
4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the
LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

CHAPTER 7:

38 He that believeth on me, as the
scripture hath said, out of his belly shall
flow rivers of living water.

CHAPTER 4:

4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let
thine heart retain my words: keep my
commandments, and live.

20 ¶ My son, attend to my words; incline
thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes;
keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find
them, and health to all their flesh.

CHAPTER 4:

5 Let your moderation be known unto all
men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every
thing by prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be made
known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all
understanding, shall keep your hearts and
minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are
true, whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just, whatsoever
things are pure, whatsoever things are
lovely, whatsoever things are of good
report; if there be any virtue, and if there
be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both
learned, and received, and heard, and seen
in me, do: and the God of peace shall be
with you.
10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that
now at the last your care of me hath
flourished again; wherein ye were also
careful, but ye lacked opportunity.
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for
I have learned, in whatsoever state I am,
therewith to be content.
12 I know both how to be abased, and I
know how to abound: every where and in
all things I am instructed both to be full
and to be hungry, both to abound and to
suffer need.
13 I can do all things through Christ
which strengtheneth me.

CHAPTER 14:

15 ¶ If ye love me, keep my
commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall
give you another Comforter, that he may
abide with you for ever;

26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy
Ghost, whom the Father will send in my
name, he shall teach you all things, and
bring all things to your remembrance,
whatsoever I have said unto you.

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will
come to you.

CHAPTER 16:

7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is
expedient for you that I go away: for if I
go not away, the Comforter will not come
unto you; but if I depart, I will send him
unto you.

CHAPTER 3:

IF ye then be risen with Christ, seek those
things which are above, where Christ
sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not
on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with
Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall
appear, then shall ye also appear with him
in glory.

CHAPTER 3:

BEHOLD, what manner of love the Father
hath bestowed upon us, that we should be
called the sons of God: therefore the world
knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God,
and it doth not yet appear what we shall
be: but we know that, when he shall
appear, we shall be like him; for we shall
see him as he is.
5 And ye know that he was manifested to
take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the
glorious appearing of the great God and
our Saviour Jesus Christ;

CHAPTER 4:

13 But I would not have you to be
ignorant, brethren, concerning them which
are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as
others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and
rose again, even so them also which sleep
in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word
of the Lord, that we which are alive and
remain unto the coming of the Lord shall
not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend
from heaven with a shout, with the voice
of the archangel, and with the trump of
God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in
the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and
so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with
these words.

CHAPTER 8:

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death,
nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor
powers, nor things present, nor things to
come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other
creature, shall be able to separate us from
the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus
our Lord.

23 ¶ Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise
man glory in his wisdom, neither let the
mighty man glory in his might, let not the
rich man glory in his riches:
24 But let him that glorieth glory in this,
that he understandeth and knoweth me,
that I am the LORD which exercise
lovingkindness, judgment, and
righteousness, in the earth: for in these
things I delight, saith the LORD.

over thee with joy; he will rest in his love,
he will joy over thee with singing.
