Psalm 24: 1-2 -3
Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? 4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.
Psalm 24: 1-2 – 1
The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; 2 for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. (NIV)
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,for they will be filled. (NIV)
Matthew 5:3-4 Blessed are the poor in spirit,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn,for they will be comforted. (NIV)
Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him,and he began to teach them. (NIV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.
11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.
12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—
13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
