God, the Great Giver
Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.
The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel;
I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit,
which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger
and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers:
for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
Then touched he their eyes, saying,
According to your faith be it unto you.
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe,
all things are possible to him that believeth.
Therefore I say unto you,
What things soever ye desire, when ye pray,
believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure,
pressed down, and shaken together,
and running over, shall men give into your bosom.
For with the same measure that ye mete withal
it shall be measured to you again.
And he said, The things which are impossible with men
are possible with God.
Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth,
the same shall he receive of the Lord,
whether he be bond or free.
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.
Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things
that pertain unto life and godliness,
through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him,
because we keep his commandments,
and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
