Psalm 3

A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.
  1. Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
  2. Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
  3. But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
  4. I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
  5. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me.
  6. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
  7. Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
  8. Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

Matthew 27:61-28:10

  1. And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.1
  2. Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
  3. Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
  4. Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
  5. Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.
  6. So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

Chapter 28

  1. In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
  2. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
  3. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
  4. And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
  5. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
  6. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
  7. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
  8. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
  9. And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
  10. Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Matthew 27:27-60

  1. Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
  2. And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
  3. And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
  4. And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
  5. And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
  6. And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
  7. And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
  8. They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
  9. And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
  10. And sitting down they watched him there;
  11. And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
  12. Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
  13. And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
  14. And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
  15. Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
  16. He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
  17. He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
  18. The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
  19. Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
  20. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
  21. Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
  22. And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
  23. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
  24. Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
  25. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
  26. And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
  27. And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
  28. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
  29. And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:
  30. Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children.
  31. When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:
  32. He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
  33. And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
  34. And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre,1 and departed.

Ephesians 4:17-32

  1. This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
  2. Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
  3. Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness,1 to work all uncleanness with greediness.
  4. But ye have not so learned Christ;
  5. If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
  6. That ye put off concerning the former conversation2 the old man,3 which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
  7. And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
  8. And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
  9. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
  10. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
  11. Neither give place to the devil.
  12. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
  13. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
  14. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
  15. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
  16. And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Exodus 11:1-12:32

  1. And the Lord said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether.
  2. Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold.
  3. And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people.
  4. And Moses said, Thus saith the Lord, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:
  5. And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.
  6. And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.
  7. But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the Lord doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.
  8. And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people that follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh in a great anger.
  9. And the Lord said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.
  10. And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the Lord hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.

Chapter 12

  1. And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
  2. This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
  3. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
  4. And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.
  5. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
  6. And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
  7. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.
  8. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
  9. Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.
  10. And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.
  11. And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the Lord's passover.
  12. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord.
  13. And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
  14. And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.
  15. Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.
  16. And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.
  17. And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.
  18. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.
  19. Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.
  20. Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.
  21. Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.
  22. And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.
  23. For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
  24. And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever.
  25. And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the Lord will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.
  26. And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?
  27. That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.
  28. And the children of Israel went away, and did as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
  29. And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
  30. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
  31. And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the Lord, as ye have said.
  32. Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also.

Philippians 4:4-9

A portion of this scripture has already been included in another post. This one has more of the context.
  1. Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
  2. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
  3. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
  4. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

II Corinthians 10:1-7

  1. Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you:
  2. But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.
  3. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
  4. (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
  5. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
  6. And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
  7. Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.
