Ephesians Chapter 6 & Psalms Chapter 116
6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
6:2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with
6:3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the
6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them
up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the
flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto
6:6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ,
doing the will of God from the heart;
6:7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
6:8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he
receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
6:9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing
threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is
there respect of persons with him.
6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of
6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.
6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of
this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be
able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and
having on the breastplate of righteousness;
6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able
to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:
6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and
watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all
6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my
mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
6:20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak
boldly, as I ought to speak.
6:21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a
beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to
you all things:
6:22 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know
our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
6:23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ.
6:24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in
115:1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but
unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
115:2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?
115:3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath
115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see
115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell
115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they
walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
115:8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that
trusteth in them.
115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their
115:10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their
115:11 Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and
115:12 The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless
the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.
115:13 He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.
115:14 The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
115:15 Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
115:16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's: but the earth hath
he given to the children of men.
115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into
115:18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
Praise the LORD.
