Hebrews 4:12

12For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart. (ASV)

Psalm 139:1-24

1For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. O Jehovah, thou hast searched me, and known [me]. 2Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising; Thou understandest my thought afar off. 3Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, And art acquainted with all my ways. 4For there is not a word in my tongue, But, lo, O Jehovah, thou knowest it altogether. 5Thou hast beset me behind and before, And laid thy hand upon me. 6[Such] knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain unto it. 7Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou art there. 9If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10Even there shall thy hand lead me, And thy right hand shall hold me. 11If I say, Surely the darkness shall overwhelm me, And the light about me shall be night; 12Even the darkness hideth not from thee, But the night shineth as the day: The darkness and the light are both alike [to thee]. 13For thou didst form my inward parts: Thou didst cover me in my mother's womb. 14I will give thanks unto thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Wonderful are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well. 15My frame was not hidden from thee, When I was made in secret, [And] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16Thine eyes did see mine unformed substance; And in thy book they were all written, [Even] the days that were ordained [for me], When as yet there was none of them. 17How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 18If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: When I awake, I am still with thee. 19Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: Depart from me therefore, ye bloodthirsty men. 20For they speak against thee wickedly, And thine enemies take [thy name] in vain. 21Do not I hate them, O Jehovah, that hate thee? And am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? 22I hate them with perfect hatred: They are become mine enemies. 23Search me, O God, and know my heart: Try me, and know my thoughts; 24And see if there be any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting. (ASV)

Psalm 34:1-22

1A Psalm of David; when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed. I will bless Jehovah at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2My soul shall make her boast in Jehovah: The meek shall hear thereof, and be glad. 3Oh magnify Jehovah with me, And let us exalt his name together. 4I sought Jehovah, and he answered me, And delivered me from all my fears. 5They looked unto him, and were radiant; And their faces shall never be confounded. 6This poor man cried, and Jehovah heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles. 7The angel of Jehovah encampeth round about them that fear him, And delivereth them. 8Oh taste and see that Jehovah is good: Blessed is the man that taketh refuge in him. 9Oh fear Jehovah, ye his saints; For there is no want to them that fear him. 10The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger; But they that seek Jehovah shall not want any good thing. 11Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of Jehovah. 12What man is he that desireth life, And loveth [many] days, that he may see good? 13Keep thy tongue from evil, And thy lips from speaking guile. 14Depart from evil, and do good; Seek peace, and pursue it. 15The eyes of Jehovah are toward the righteous, And his ears are [open] unto their cry. 16The face of Jehovah is against them that do evil, To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. 17[The righteous] cried, and Jehovah heard, And delivered them out of all their troubles. 18Jehovah is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart, And saveth such as are of a contrite spirit. 19Many are the afflictions of the righteous; But Jehovah delivereth him out of them all. 20He keepeth all his bones: Not one of them is broken. 21Evil shall slay the wicked; And they that hate the righteous shall be condemned. 22Jehovah redeemeth the soul of his servants; And none of them that take refuge in him shall be condemned.
