hast magnified thy word above all thy
name.

CHAPTER 6:

63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh
profiteth nothing: the words that I speak
unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

CHAPTER 1:

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and
superfluity of naughtiness, and receive
with meekness the engrafted word, which
is able to save your souls.

THE APOSTLE TO TIMOTHY.
CHAPTER 6:

3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent
not to wholesome words, even the words
of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the
doctrine which is according to godliness;
4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but
doting about questions and strifes of
words, whereof cometh envy, strife,
railings, evil surmisings,
5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt
minds, and destitute of the truth,
supposing that gain is godliness: from
such withdraw thyself.

To the chief Musician upon Jonath-elem-
rechokim, Michtam of David, when the

CHAPTER 22:
28 And her prophets have daubed them
with untempered morter, seeing vanity,
and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus
saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath
not spoken.
CHAPTER 13:
22 Because with lies ye have made the
heart of the righteous sad, whom I have
not made sad; and strengthened the hands
of the wicked, that he should not return
from his wicked way, by promising him
life:
CHAPTER 14:
9 And if the prophet be deceived when he
hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have
deceived that prophet, and I will stretch
out my hand upon him, and will destroy
him from the midst of my people Israel.
10 And they shall bear the punishment of
their iniquity: the punishment of the
prophet shall be even as the punishment of
him that seeketh unto him;

CHAPTER 23:

28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him
tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let
him speak my word faithfully. What is the
chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.
29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the
LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh
the rock in pieces?
30 Therefore, behold, I am against the
prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my
words every one from his neighbour.
31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith
the LORD, that use their tongues, and say,
He saith.
32 Behold, I am against them that
prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD,
and do tell them, and cause my people to
err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet
I sent them not, nor commanded them:
therefore they shall not profit this people
at all, saith the LORD.
33 ¶ And when this people, or the prophet,
or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is
the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then
say unto them, What burden? I will even
forsake you, saith the LORD.
34 And as for the prophet, and the priest,
and the people, that shall say, The burden
of the LORD, I will even punish that man
and his house.
35 Thus shall ye say every one to his
neighbour, and every one to his brother,
What hath the LORD answered? and, What
hath the LORD spoken?
36 And the burden of the LORD shall ye
mention no more: for every man’s word
shall be his burden; for ye have perverted
the words of the living God, of the LORD
of hosts our God.
37 Thus shalt thou say to the prophet,
What hath the LORD answered thee? and,
What hath the LORD spoken?
38 But since ye say, The burden of the
LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD;
Because ye say this word, The burden of
the LORD, and I have sent unto you,
saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of
the LORD;
39 Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly
forget you, and I will forsake you, and the
city that I gave you and your fathers, and
cast you out of my presence:
40 And I will bring an everlasting
reproach upon you, and a perpetual
shame, which shall not be forgotten.

6 Let no man deceive you with vain
words: for because of these things cometh
the wrath of God upon the children of
disobedience.

3 Is not destruction to the wicked? and a
strange punishment to the workers of
iniquity?

CHAPTER 21:

8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the
abominable, and murderers, and
whoremongers, and sorcerers, and
idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part
in the lake which burneth with fire and
brimstone: which is the second death.

46 Where their worm dieth not, and the
fire is not quenched.

fire is not quenched.

CHAPTER 3:

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his
promise, as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward, not
willing that any should perish, but that all
should come to repentance.

 JEREMIAH CHAPTER 23:36-40

36 And the burden of the LORD shall ye
mention no more: for every man’s word
shall be his burden; for ye have perverted
the words of the living God, of the LORD
of hosts our God.

37 Thus shalt thou say to the prophet,
What hath the LORD answered thee? and,
What hath the LORD spoken?
38 But since ye say, The burden of the
LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD;
Because ye say this word, The burden of
the LORD, and I have sent unto you,
saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of
the LORD;
39 Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly
forget you, and I will forsake you, and the
city that I gave you and your fathers, and
cast you out of my presence:
40 And I will bring an everlasting
reproach upon you, and a perpetual
shame, which shall not be forgotten.
