Hebrews 1
1
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,
2
but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
3
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
4
having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
5
For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”? Or again, “I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son”?
6
And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God's angels worship him.”
7
Of the angels he says, “He makes his angels winds, and his ministers a flame of fire.”
8
But of the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
9
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”
10
And, “You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands;
11
they will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment,
12
like a robe you will roll them up, like a garment they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will have no end.”
13
And to which of the angels has he ever said, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?
14
Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?

James 1
1
James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion: Greetings.
2
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,
3
for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.
4
And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
5
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
6
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
7
For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;
8
he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
9
Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation,
10
and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass he will pass away.
11
For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits.
12
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
13
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.
14
But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
15
Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
16
Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers.
17
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
18
Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
19
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;
20
for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
21
Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
22
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
23
For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror.
24
For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.
25
But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
26
If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless.
27
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

2 Peter 2
1
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.
2
And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed.
3
And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
4
For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment;
5
if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6
if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
7
and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked
8
(for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard);
9
then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment,
10
and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority. Bold and willful, they do not tremble as they blaspheme the glorious ones,
11
whereas angels, though greater in might and power, do not pronounce a blasphemous judgment against them before the Lord.
12
But these, like irrational animals, creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed, blaspheming about matters of which they are ignorant, will also be destroyed in their destruction,
13
suffering wrong as the wage for their wrongdoing. They count it pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their deceptions, while they feast with you.
14
They have eyes full of adultery, insatiable for sin. They entice unsteady souls. They have hearts trained in greed. Accursed children!
15
Forsaking the right way, they have gone astray. They have followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved gain from wrongdoing,
16
but was rebuked for his own transgression; a speechless donkey spoke with human voice and restrained the prophet's madness.
17
These are waterless springs and mists driven by a storm. For them the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved.
18
For, speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely escaping from those who live in error.
19
They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved.
20
For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first.
21
For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them.
22
What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.”

1 Peter 1
1
Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who are elect exiles of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
2
according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in the sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood: May grace and peace be multiplied to you.
3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4
to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you,
5
who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6
In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials,
7
so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
8
Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,
9
obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
10
Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully,
11
inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories.
12
It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.
13
Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
14
As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance,
15
but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct,
16
since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
17
And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile,
18
knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold,
19
but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.
20
He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you
21
who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
22
Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart,
23
since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God;
24
for “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls,
25
but the word of the Lord remains forever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you.
