shall be
as a tree planted by the water

1 "MICHTAM": 4387. miktam, mik-tawm'; from H3799; an engraving, i.e. (techn.) a poem:--Michtam.

Psa 16:2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;

Psa 16:3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

Multiplied sorrows for those seeking other gods

Psa 16:4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.

Psa 16:5 The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

Ezek 44:28 And it shall be unto them for an inheritance: I am their inheritance: and ye shall give them no possession in Israel: I am their possession.

Psa 16:6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

Psa 16:7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

Psa 16:8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

Psa 16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

Psa 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Pleasures for evermore

Psa 16:11 Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Who's at the right hand of God? Jesus.

Mat 26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

Keep me as the apple of the eye

Psa 17:1 A prayer of David. Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.

Psa 17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.

Psa 17:3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

Psa 17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

Psa 17:5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.

Psa 17:7 Show thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.

Psa 17:8 Keep me as the apple[1] of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

1 "APPLE": 380. 'iyshown, ee-shone'; dimin. from H376; the little man of the eye; the pupil or ball; hence the middle (of night):--apple [of the eye], black, obscure.

Psa 17:9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

Psa 17:10 They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.

Psa 17:11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;

Psa 17:12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

Psa 17:13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:

Psa 17:14 From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.

Psa 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

David thanks God for deliverance

Psa 18:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD, who spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said, I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

The chapter is almost like 2 Samuel 22.

Psa 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Deu 32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Heb 2:13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

Psa 18:3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Psa 18:4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

Psa 18:5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

Psa 18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

See 2 Samuel 22:7-15.

Psa 18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth[1].

1 "WROTH": 2734. charah, khaw-raw'; a prim. root [comp. H2787]; to glow or grow warm; fig. (usually) to blaze up, of anger, zeal, jealousy:--be angry, burn, be displeased, X earnestly, fret self, grieve, be (wax) hot, be incensed, kindle, X very, be wroth. See H8474.

Jer 4:26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.

Psa 18:8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

Psa 18:9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.

Psa 18:10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

Psa 104:3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:

Psa 18:11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

Psa 18:12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

Psa 18:13 The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

Exo 9:23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

Exo 9:24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

Rev 8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

Psa 18:14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

Psa 18:15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

Psa 18:16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

Psa 18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

Psa 18:18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.

Psa 18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

Psa 18:20 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.

Psa 18:21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

Psa 18:22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.

Psa 18:23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

Psa 18:24 Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.

Psa 18:25 With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt show thyself upright;

Psa 18:26 With the pure thou wilt show thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt show thyself froward.

Psa 18:35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Psa 18:40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.

Psa 18:41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.

Psa 18:42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

Psa 18:43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.

Psa 18:44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

Psa 18:50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and showeth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.

The Heavens declare the glory of God

Psa 19:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare[1] the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.

1 "DECLARE": 5608. caphar, saw-far'; a prim. root; prop. to score with a mark as a tally or record, i.e. (by impl.) to inscribe, and also to enumerate; intens. to recount, i.e. celebrate:--commune, (ac-) count, declare, number, + penknife, reckon, scribe, shew forth, speak, talk, tell (out), writer.

Psa 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.

The heavenly bodies continually emit sounds, (speech). We have radio telescopes listening constantly. For what? For life out there. Maybe we just don't know the language. At night, (that's when we see them), they show off knowledge? Who's knowledge? GOD'S! You know anything or anyone else smart enough to put it there? The night skies should continually remind all on earth of the ALMIGHTY GOD.

From the National Radio Astronomy Observatory:
Radio telescopes are used to study naturally occurring radio emission from stars, galaxies, quasars, and other astronomical objects.

Psa 19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Psa 19:4 Their line[1] is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

1 "LINE": 6957. qav, kav; or qav, kawv; from H6960 [comp. H6961]; a cord (as connecting), espec. for measuring; fig. a rule; also a rim, a musical string or accord:--line. Comp. H6978.

Rom 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

Psa 19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

Psa 19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit[1] unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

1 "CIRCUIT": 8622. tequwphah, tek-oo-faw'; or tequphah, tek-oo-faw'; from H5362; a revolution, i.e. (of the sun) course, (of time) lapse:--circuit, come about, end.

We, (in the flesh), depend on the sun for our existence. We, (in the spirit), depend on the SON for our existence. Without the SON there would be no sun. So in reality, all life whether in spirit or flesh depends entirely on the SON. In these verses God is comparing the sun as a bridegroom. Jesus is our Bridegroom.

Mat 25:1 (Jesus talking). Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

In the Beginning:
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Gen 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

Isa 30:26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

Isa 30:27 Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:

Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

In heaven:
Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

Rev 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

The laws of God are perfect

Psa 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

Psa 19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

Psa 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

Psa 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Psa 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Psa 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

Psa 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

Psa 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses

Psa 20:2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;

Psa 20:3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.

Psa 20:4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.

Psa 20:5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.

Psa 20:6 Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed[1]; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.

1 "ANOINTED": 4899. mashiyach, maw-shee'-akh; from H4886; anointed; usually a consecrated person (as a king, priest, or saint); spec. the Messiah:--anointed, Messiah.

Psa 20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

Psa 20:8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.

Psa 20:9 Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.

A praise for victory, strength, salvation, and mercy

Psa 21:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!

Psa 21:2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.

Psa 21:3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.

Psa 21:4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.

Psa 21:5 His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.

Psa 21:6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.

Psa 21:7 For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.

Psa 21:8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.

Psa 21:9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.

Psa 21:10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.

Psa 21:11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.

Psa 21:12 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.

Psa 21:13 Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.

The prophecy of the crucifixion of Jesus
Approximately 1,000 years before the actual event

Psa 22:1 To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Psa 22:2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.

Psa 22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

Psa 22:4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.

1 Chr 5:20 And they were helped against them, and the Hagarites were delivered into their hand, and all that were with them: for they cried to God in the battle, and he was entreated of them; because they put their trust in him.

Psa 22:5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

Psa 22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

Psa 22:7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

Psa 22:8 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

Mark 15:29 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,

Mark 15:30 Save thyself, and come down from the cross.

Mark 15:31 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.

Mat 27:43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

Psa 22:9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.

Psa 22:10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.

Psa 22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

Psa 22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

Psa 22:13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

Mark 15:29 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,

Psa 22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

Psa 22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

Luke 24:40 And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet.

Psa 22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.

Mark 15:40 There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;

Psa 22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

John 19:24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

Psa 22:19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.

Psa 22:25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

Psa 22:26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.

The wicked deviseth mischief upon his bed

Psa 37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

David, pouring his heart out to God
Revealing some of his inner-most and personal feelings

Psa 38:1 A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

Psa 38:2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.

Psa 38:3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.

Psa 38:4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

Psa 38:5 My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.

Psa 38:11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.

Psa 38:12 They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.

Psa 38:13 But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.

Psa 38:14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.

Psa 38:15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.

Psa 38:16 For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.

Psa 38:17 For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.

Psa 38:18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.

Psa 38:19 But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

Psa 38:20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.

Psa 38:21 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.

David tries to hold his tongue but sometimes he just can't

Psa 39:1 To the chief Musician, even to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David. I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.

Psa 39:2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.

Vanity vanity

Psa 39:5 Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.

Psa 39:6 Surely every man walketh in a vain show: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.

Psa 39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.

Psa 39:9 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.

Psa 39:11 When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.

Psa 39:12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.

Psa 39:13 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.

David, waiting patiently for the Lord

Psa 40:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

Psa 40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

Psa 40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

God's thoughts towards us are without number

Psa 40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

Heb 10:7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

Psa 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.

Psa 40:9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.

Psa 40:10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

Psa 40:11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

Psa 40:12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

Psa 40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.

Psa 40:14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.

God will bless those
that remember the poor and needy

Psa 41:3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.

Psa 41:4 I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.

Psa 41:5 Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?

Prophecy of the betrayal of Jesus by Judas

Psa 41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.

Mat 26:23 (Jesus talking). And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.

Acts 1:16 Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.

Psa 41:10 But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.

Psa 41:11 By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.

Psa 41:12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.

Psa 41:13 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.

Thanks, for allowing me, to share this with you. Remember, to always, study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

In His Word,
