Jesus Christ the Fiery Serpent

Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.




Psalm 1

{1:1} Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. {1:2} But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. {1:3} And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. {1:4} The ungodly [are] not so: but [are] like the chaff which the wind driveth away. {1:5} Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. {1:6} For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.


Psalm 23

A Psalm of David. {23:1} The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall not want. {23:2} He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. {23:3} He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. {23:4} Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. {23:5} Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. {23:6} Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.


Psalm 51

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. {51:1} Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my King James Bible Psalms Page 343 transgressions. {51:2} Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. {51:3} For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin [is] ever before me. {51:4} Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done [this] evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, [and] be clear when thou judgest. {51:5} Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. {51:6} Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden [part] thou shalt make me to know wisdom. {51:7} Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. {51:8} Make me to hear joy and gladness; [that] the bones [which] thou hast broken may rejoice. {51:9} Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. {51:10} Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. {51:11} Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. {51:12} Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit. {51:13} [Then] will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. {51:14} Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: [and] my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. {51:15} O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. {51:16} For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give [it:] thou delightest not in burnt offering. {51:17} The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. {51:18} Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem. {51:19} Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

Psalm 25

Psalm 25

A [Psalm] of David. {25:1} Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul. {25:2} O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. {25:3} Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. {25:4} Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. {25:5} Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou [art] the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. {25:6} Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they [have been] ever of old. {25:7} Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O LORD. {25:8} Good and upright [is] the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. {25:9} The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. {25:10} All the paths of the LORD [are] mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. {25:11} For thy name’s sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it [is] great. {25:12} What man [is] he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way [that] he shall choose. {25:13} His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. {25:14} The secret of the LORD [is] with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
{25:15} Mine eyes [are] ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my
feet out of the net.
{25:16} Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I [am] desolate
and afflicted.

my distresses.

{25:19} Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with
cruel hatred.
{25:20} O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I
put my trust in thee.
{25:21} Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
{25:22} Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
