To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose
under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die: a time
to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time
to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time
to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn,
and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to
gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain
from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to
keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to
sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love,
and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the
eyes to behold the sun: But if a man live many years, and rejoice
in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they
shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.
Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the
evil days come not, not the years draw nigh, when thou shalt
say, I have no pleasure in them; While the sun, or the light,
or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return
after the rain; In the day when the keepers of the house shall
tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders
cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows
be darkened, And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when
the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the
voice of the bird, and all the daughters of music shall be brought
Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days,
what it [is; that] I may know how frail I [am]. 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. Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely
they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up [riches], and knoweth
not who shall gather them.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal
[must] put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have
put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality,
then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death
is swallowed up in victory. O death, where [is] thy sting? O
grave, where [is] thy victory?
1 Corinthians 15:53-55
I have fought a good fight, I have finished [my] course, I
have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown
of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall
give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also
that love his appearing.
2 Timothy 4:7-8
That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith,
in charity, in patience. The aged women likewise, that [they
be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not
given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach
the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love
their children, [to be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good,
obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me,
and heard my cry. 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. 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
Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and
might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he
removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the
wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth
the deep and secret things: he knoweth what [is] in the darkness,
and the light dwelleth with him.
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live
by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the
mouth of God.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit
of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except
ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that
abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit:
for without me ye can do nothing.
And we know that all things work together for good to them
that love God, to them who are the called according to [his]
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let
your moderation be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be
careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And
the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep
your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
