Some of My Favorite Bible Verses

by Aleta Kay

Ps. 1:1-3: Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. How about that: a recipe for success! Straight from God!

Ps. 8:1-9: O Lord our Lord how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength becaue of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. When I consider the heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, whih thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and has crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the filed; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!  I love the poetic cadence of the King James language and for those who say it is too hard to understand, if you substitute modern pronouns for the thees and thous, it's really pretty simple. Some of the words have changed meanings over the centuries but if you read the context of the sentence it's not that hard to figure out. Also, e-sword is a free downloadable Bible program that has a built in concordance.

Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. This is a blank check, so to speak, if you match your desires to God's.

Psalm 34:7  The Lord encamps round about those that fear Him. He keeps His children in the palm of His hand. Even when death is at the door, God is right there ready to take us to His home. What could be better than being home with Dad?

More another day.
