Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

David said unto his servants, is the child dead? And they said, He is dead. Then David arose from the earth, and washed and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the Lord, and worshipped: then he came to his own house; and when he required, they set bread before him, and he did eat.

Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, and mine acquaintance into darkness.

The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. Be still, and know that I am God.

I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me. Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word. It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy sta


Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope. This is my comfort in my affliction for thy word hath

quickened me.

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

Godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. The Lord will have mercy upon his afflicted.

When thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. He doth not afflict willingly, nor grieve the children of men.

Let them that suffer according to the will of God, commit the keeping of their souls to him in well-doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

The just shall come out of trouble. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The salvation of the righteous is of the Lord; he is their strength in time of trouble.

Is any among you afflicted? let him pray.

Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name's sake for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of


He shall call upon me, and I will answer him : I will be with him in trouble.

Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help

of man.

When they in their trouble did turn unto the Lord God of Israel, and sought him, he was found of them.

The Lord will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. God is my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. In the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion. He maketh sore and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

One light affliction which is but for a moment,

worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory: while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. For we know if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with bands, eternal in the heavens.

He that hath knowledge spareth his words. A prudent man concealeth knowledge.

The heart of the righteous studieth to answer; but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

The simple believeth every word but the prudent man looketh well to his going.

Keep discretion. Discretion shall preserve.


The discretion of a man deferreth his anger, A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.

They afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate from their right. Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time.

Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge. The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge. The prudent are crowned with knowledge.

A prudent man forseeth the evil and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are pun

THE Lord is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.

I will worship toward thy holy temple.

I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holy day.

We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise.

Let them exalt him in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.

I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people.

I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.

Praise him, ye that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God.

Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.

Let us consider one another, to provoke unto love and to good works: not forsaking

Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

A day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a door-keeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wicked


How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.



Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation.

The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner.

Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Christ Jesus. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people; and hath raised up an horn of salvation for us, in the house of his servant David; as he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began that we should be saved from oar enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us: to perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; the gath which he sware to our father Abraham, that le
