Lazarus

Morning

When ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants.

Where [is] boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.--What hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive [it], why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received [it]?--By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

By the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which [was bestowed] upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.--For of him, and through him, and to him, [are] all things.--All things [come] of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.

Enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.

Evening

He knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we [are] dust.

The LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made: marvellous [are] thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, [and] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all [my members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned, when [as yet there was] none of them.

Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us?--In him we live, and move, and have our being.--Like as a father pitieth [his] children, [so] the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

He, [being] full of compassion, forgave [their] iniquity, and destroyed [them] not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath. For he remembered that they [were but] flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
