John Chapter 17 & Proverbs Chapter 3
17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and
said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may
17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give
eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true
God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which
thou gavest me to do.
17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the
glory which I had with thee before the world was.
17:6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of
the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept
17:7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me
are of thee.
17:8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they
have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and
they have believed that thou didst send me.
17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou
hast given me; for they are thine.
17:10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in
17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and
I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou
hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those
that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son
of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
17:13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world,
that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because
they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but
that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them
into the world.
17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be
sanctified through the truth.
17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall
believe on me through their word;
17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in
thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that
thou hast sent me.
17:22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they
may be one, even as we are one:
17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one;
and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them,
as thou hast loved me.
17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me
where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for
thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
17:25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have
known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
17:26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that
the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
3:1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine
heart keep my commandments:
3:2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to
3:3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck;
write them upon the table of thine heart:
3:4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God
3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own
3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
3:8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
3:9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all
3:10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall
burst out with new wine.
3:11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of
3:12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in
whom he delighteth.
3:13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth
3:14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver,
and the gain thereof than fine gold.
3:15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst
desire are not to be compared unto her.
3:16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches
3:17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
3:18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is
every one that retaineth her.
3:19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he
established the heavens.
3:20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down
3:21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and
3:22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
3:23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not
3:24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie
down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
3:25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the
wicked, when it cometh.
3:26 For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from
3:27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the
power of thine hand to do it.
3:28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I
will give; when thou hast it by thee.
3:29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely
3:30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
3:31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
3:32 For the froward is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with
3:33 The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he
blesseth the habitation of the just.
3:34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the
3:35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of
