Esperar no Senhor

22 Having purified, your souls, by the obedience of the truth, unto unfeigned brotherly affection, from the heart, love, one another, earnestly;

23 Having been regeneratedNot out of corruptible seed, but incorruptiblethrough means of the word of a Living and Abiding God;

24 Inasmuch asAll flesh, is as grass, and, all the glory thereof, as the flower of grass,The grass hath withered, and the flower hath fallen out,

25 But the declaration of the Lord age-abidingly remaineth; And, this, is a declaration which in the joyful message hath been announced unto you.

2 Pedro 3:9

1 Then, will the kingdom of the heavens become like unto, ten virgins, who, taking their torches, went forth to meet the bridegroom.

2 Now, five of them, were foolish, and, five, prudent.

3 For, the foolishthough they took, their torches, took not with them, oil:

4 But, the prudent, took oil in their vessels, with their torches.

5 Now, the bridegroom, delaying, they all became drowsy, and were sleeping.

6 And, at midnight, an outcry hath been madeLo! the bridegroom! Be going forth to meet him!

7 Then, arose all those virgins, and trimmed their torches.

8 And, the foolish, unto the prudent, saidGive us of your oil, because, our torches, are going out.

9 But the prudent, answered, sayingLest once, by any means, there be not enough for us and you, be going rather unto them that sell, and buy for yourselves

10 But, as they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came; and, they who were ready, went in with him, into the marriage-feast, and, the door was locked.

11 But, afterwards, came the other virgins also, sayingLord! Lord! open unto us!

12 And, he, answering, saidVerily, I say unto you, I know you not.

13 Be watching, therefore, because ye know, neither the day nor the hour.

Mateus 25:1-13

1 I waited patiently for Yahweh,And he inclined, unto me, and heard my cry for help;

2 So he brought me up, Out of the destroying pit, Out of the swampy mire,And set, upon a cliff, my feet, Making firm my steps:

3 Then put he, into my mouth, a new song, Praise to our God,Many shall see and revere, And shall trust in Yahweh.

4 How happy the man, Who hath made Yahweh his confidence, who hath not turned unto the haughty, nor gone aside unto falsehood.

5 Mighty things, hast thou doneThou, Yahweh my God, Thy wonderful doings and thy purposes to-wards us, There is no setting them in order unto theeI would tell, and would speak!They are too great to rehearse.

6 Sacrifice and meal-offering, thou didst not delight in, Ears, didst thou pierce for me,Ascending-sacrifice and sin-bearer, thou didst not ask:

7 Then, said ILo! I am come, In the written scroll, is it prescribed for me;

8 To do thy good-pleasure, O my God, is my delight, And, thy law, is in the midst of mine inward parts:

9 I have told the good-tidings of righteousness in a great convocation, Lo! my lips, do I not restrain, O Yahweh, thou, knowest:

10 Thy righteousness, have I not hid in the midst of my heart, Thy faithfulness and thy salvation, have I spoken, I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truthfulness from the great convocation.

11 Thou, O Yahweh, wilt not restrain thy compassions from me, Thy lovingkindness and thy truthfulness, shall continually watch over me.

12 For there have closed in upon me, misfortunes beyond number, Mine iniquities have overtaken me, and I cannot see, They have become more than the hairs of my head, And, my courage, hath forsaken me!

13 Be pleased, O Yahweh, to rescue me, O Yahweh! to help me, make haste!

14 Let them turn pale and then at once blush, who are seeking my life to snatch it away,Let them draw back, and be confounded, who are taking pleasure in my calamity;

Salmos 40:1-14

20 Our own soul, hath waited for Yahweh, Our help and our shield, is he!

22 Be thy lovingkindness, O Yahweh, upon us, According as we have waited for thee.

Isaías 40:31

1 Yahweh, is my light and my salvation, Of whom shall I be afraid? Yahweh, is the refuge of my life, Of whom shall I be in dread?

2 When there drew near against me evil-doers to devour my flesh, mine adversaries, and mine enemiesmine!they, stumbled and fell!

3 Though there pitch against mea camp, my heart shall not fear,Though there come up against mea battle, still, am I confident.

4 One thing, have I asked of Yahweh, That, will I seek to secure,That I may dwell in the house of Yahweh, all the days of my life, To view the delightfulness of Yahweh, And to contemplate in his temple.

5 For he will hide me in his pavilion, in the day of calamity,He will conceal me, in the secrecy of his tent, Within a rock, will he set me on high.

6 Now, therefore, shall my head be raised high above my foes round about me, and I will sacrifice in his tent the sacrifices of triumphant joy, I will sing and touch the strings, to Yahweh.

7 Hear, O Yahweh, With my voice, do I cry, Oh then show me favour and answer me.

8 To thee, said my heart Seek ye my faceThy face, O Yahweh, will I seek!

9 Do not hide thy face from me, Do not repulse, in thine anger, thine own servant,My help, thou hast been, Do not send me away nor forsake me, O my saving God!

10 When, my own father and mother, had forsaken me, Then, Yahweh, took me up!

11 Point out to me, O Yahweh, thy way,And guide me in a level path, because of mine adversaries.

12 Do not give me up unto the desire of mine adversaries, for there have risen up against me witnesses that are false, and he that fanneth up violence.

13 I believe that I shall seeThe goodness of Yahweh in the land of the living,

14 Wait thou for Yahweh,Be strong, and let thy heart be bold, Wait, then, for Yahweh!
