7 "When praying do not babble like the heathen, for they think they will be listened to because of their many words.
8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
19 Pray in this manner:
Our Father in heaven,
May Thy name be held in reverence,
10 May Thy kingdom come,
May Thy will be done,
As in heaven so on earth.
11 Give us today our bread for the day;¹
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors;
13 And do not bring us to testing, but deliver us from evil. ² ³
¹ Two suggested meaning are bread for the day (Old Latin) and bread for the coming day (Jerome, quoting a Hebrew Gospel).
² Or, the Evil one. ³ Some witnesses add: For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power and the glory for ever, Amen.
22 While they were eating He took bread, said the blessing, broke it and gave it to them, and said,
"Take it; this is My body."
23 He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them; and they all drank from it.
24 He said to them, "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out on behalf of many.
25 In truth I tell you, I shall no more drink of the fruit of the vine till that day when I drink it new in the Kingdom of God.
26 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
27 Jesus said to them, "You will all fall away, for it is written, I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;
28 but after I have been raised, I will go before you¹ into Galilee."
¹ See 16:7, which shows that the meaning is not "in front of you", but "before you go".
32Two other men, criminals, were led out to be put to death with Him.
33 And when they came to the place called ' Skull ', there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one one the right, and the other on the left.
34 Jesus said, " Father, forgive them; they do not know what they are doing." They shared out His garments among themselves, casting lots for them.
35 The people stood there looking on. The rulers also with them sneered, saying, " Others He saved; let Him save Himself, if this fellow is God's chosen Messiah."
36 The soldiers also were mocking Him, coming to Him and offering Him sour wine, and saying,"
37 If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself. "
38There was also a notice above Him: " THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS."
[Words or sentences printed in italics are quotations from the Old Testament:]
13 "No one has ascended to heaven, except Him who descended from heaven, the Son of Man who is from heaven.
14 As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
15 in order that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life.
16 For so God loved the world that He gave His only Son in order that everyone who believes in Him should not be destroyed, but have eternal life.
17 "For God did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him.
18 He who believes in Him is not judged; he who has not believed has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of God's only Son.
19 This is the course of judgment: the light has come into the world, but men loved the darkness rather than the light, for their deeds were evil.
20 Everyone who acts basely hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds be exposed;
21 but he who practises the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be shown to have been done in God."
1 Corinthians 15:20-28
20 But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep¹.
21 For because death came through a man, the resurrection from the dead came also through a man.
22 Just as all die in Adam, so also all will be brought to life in Christ, each in his own order:
23 Christ the firstfruits, after that at His coming those who are Christ's, then the end,
24 when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when he has abolished every rule and every authority and every power.
25 For He must² reign until He has set all His enemies under His feet.
26 The last enemy to be abolished is death; 27 for He subjected all things under His feet.
When it says that all things are subjected, clearly this excludes Him who subjected all things to Him.
28 But when all things are subjected to Him, then also the Son Himself will be subjected to Him who subjected all things to Him, that God may be all in all.
[Words or sentences printed in italics are quotations from the Old Testament:] ¹ That is, died. ² Must indicates the force of a divine decree.
The Letter to the Hebrews 12:22-28
22 No, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to a great host of angles in festal assembly,
23 to the Church of the first-born who are enrolled in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of righteous men who have been made perfect,
24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood which speaks with better effect than that of Abel.
25 Beware of refusing to hear Him who is speaking. If they did not escape on earth when they had refused to hear Him who was instructing them,
how much more shall we not escape, who turn away Him who is from heaven?
26 His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, Once more will I shake¹ not earth alone, but heaven as well.
27 The words Once more indicate the removal of the things that are shaken, that is, created things, in order that the unshaken things remain.
28 Therefore, because we receive an unshakeable kingdom, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably, with reverence and awe;
for indeed our God is a consuming fire:
[Words or sentences printed in italics are quotations from the Old Testament:] ¹ Lit., I shake.
The Second Letter of Peter 3:8-13
8 Let this one thing, beloved, not be ignored by you, that with God one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord does not delay in the fulfilment of His promise, as some count delay; but he is patient with you and does not wish that any should perish,
but that all should come to repentence.
10 The Day of the Lord will come like a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a roar, the stars¹ will dissolve in the heat;
the earth and all its deeds will be exposed.
11 If all these things are to be dissolved what kind of people ought you to be, living holy and godly lives! 12 while you await and seek to hasten
the arrival of the Day of God, which will cause the heavens to dissolve with fire and the stars¹ to melt in the heat.
13 But according to His promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness has its home.
[Words or sentences printed in italics are quotations from the Old Testament:] ¹Or, elements.
