Bible Quote 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
19:2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
19:3 There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
19:4 Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun,
19:5 which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

19:6 It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat.
19:7 The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
19:8 The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
19:9 The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are sure and altogether righteous.
19:10 They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.

19:11 By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
19:12 Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults.
19:13 Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then will I be blameless, innocent of great transgression.
19:14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord , my Rock and my Redeemer.
Bible Quote 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
11:34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?"
11:35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?"

11:36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.

12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship.
12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.
12:3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
12:4 Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,
12:5 so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

12:6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith.
12:7 If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach;
12:8 if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
