Psalm 60 and 2 John 1
Ps 60:4-12 (KJV)
4Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.5That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.6God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.7Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;8Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me.9Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?10Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?11Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.12Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
2John 1:1-11 (KJV)
1The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;2For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.3Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.4I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.5And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.6And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.7For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.8Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.9Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.10If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:11For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
