DAY 126 Romans 13-14 Proverbs 19:1-14

ROMANS
13:1
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
13:2
Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
13:3
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
13:4
For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
13:5
Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
13:6
For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
13:7
Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
13:8
Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
13:9
For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
13:10
Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
13:11
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
13:12
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13:13
Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
13:14
But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
14:1
Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
14:2
For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.
14:3
Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
14:4
Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
14:5
One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
14:6
He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
14:7
For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
14:8
For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
14:9
For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
14:10
But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
14:11
For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
14:12
So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
14:13
Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
14:14
I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
14:15
But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.
14:16
Let not then your good be evil spoken of:
14:17
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
14:18
For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.
14:19
Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
14:20
For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.
14:21
It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.
14:22
Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.
14:23
And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

PROVERBS
19:1
Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
19:2
Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.
19:3
The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.
19:4
Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.
19:5
A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.
19:6
Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
19:7
All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth them with words, yet they are wanting to him.
19:8
He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.
19:9
A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.
19:10
Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
19:11
The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
19:12
The king's wrath is as the roaring of a lion; but his favour is as dew upon the grass.
19:13
A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.
19:14
House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.
