第二十一章 论基督教的礼拜和安息日

中文赵中辉版

  一、人之本性指示一位在万有之上的主宰,又有至上的主权,本为善,又向万人行善的神,因此人当尽心、尽性、尽力、尽意敬畏、爱慕、赞美、求告、信靠、事奉他1。但敬拜真神,蒙他悦纳的方法,就是他自己所设立的,又受他自己所启示的旨意之限制,我们不可按人的想象和私见,撒但的提议,或以任何可见的表象,或其他非圣经所规定的方法来敬拜神2。


  二、惟独为父、子、圣灵的神当受宗教的敬拜3,天使、圣徒,或任何其他受造物都不当受敬拜4。人类堕落后的敬拜并不是没有中保的,也不是凭着任何其他别的仲裁,乃惟独以基督为中保5。


  三、感谢的祈祷既为宗教礼拜的主要部份6,所以神吩咐万人祈祷7,为求祈祷蒙垂听,就必得奉圣子的名8,凭圣灵的帮助9,遵神的旨意10,以悟性、谦卑、热心、信心、和恒心去求11;出声祈祷时,就当用人所明白的言语12。


  四、当为合理的事祈祷13,并为现存的,或将要生存的各等人祈祷14;但不可为死人祈祷15,也不可为那些明知犯必死之罪的人祈祷16。


  五、以虔诚敬畏之心来诵读圣经17;纯正的讲道18,以理解、信心,和敬虔来正当听神的话而顺服神19,心被恩感歌唱诗篇20。正当执行或按理领受基督所设立的圣礼,均为一般敬拜神的部份21;此外,如宗教的宣誓22、誓愿23、严肃的禁食24,以及特殊时节的感恩等25,都当按时期与季节,以圣洁和敬虔的方式举行26。


  六、宗教礼拜中的祈祷以及其他任何部份,现今在福音时代,既不限于任何地域或任何方向,亦不因地域与方向而蒙悦纳27;乃要随地28以心灵和诚实敬拜神29,每日30在个人家中31,独自在隐密处32;且更加严肃地在公共聚会中敬拜神。当神以其圣言或护理召聚公共聚会时,就不可漠不关心或故意忽略或放弃33。


  七、按一般规定来说,为敬拜神而取出一适当分配的时间这件事,乃属自然之理;所以神在圣经中以积极的、道德的,和永久命令,特别指定七日中的一日为安息,吩咐各世各代的万人向他遵守此日为圣日34。这圣日从世界之始到基督复活之前为一周的末一日,自从基督复活之后,这日改为一周的头一日35,这在圣经中称为主日36,而且要继续下去,此为基督教的安息日,直到世界之末37。


  八、所以当向主守此安息日为圣,人人要适当准备自己的心,事先整顿日常用务,非但整日停止自己的工作、言谈、思想、属世的职务和消遣38,保守圣洁的安息;也要用全部时间举行公私礼拜,并履行必须的与怜悯的义务39。

第二十一章 论崇拜和安息日

一.自然之光显明有一位上帝,祂是 万有的主宰,对万物有至高的主权;祂本为善,并善待万物;所以人 当尽心、尽性、尽力地敬畏、爱慕、赞美、求告、信赖、服事祂(罗1 :20;徒17:24;诗119:68;耶10:7;诗31:23;18:3;罗10:12;诗62:8;书24:14;可12:33)。但敬拜真上帝惟一蒙悦纳的方法乃是由祂自己设立的,并限于祂自己所启示的旨意,因此我们不可按照人的想像和设计,或撒但的建议,使用任 何有形的代表物或圣经所未吩咐的其他任何方法(申12:32;太15:9; 徒17:25;太4:9-10;申4:15-20;出20:4-6;西2:23),去敬拜祂。


二.崇拜应归于上帝父、子、圣灵;并且惟独归于祂(太4:10;约5:23;林后13:14),而不可归给天使、圣徒或其他任何受造之物(西2:18;启19:10;罗 1:25);并且自从人堕落以来,只可借着一位中保敬拜上 帝;基督之外,别无中保(约14:6;提前2:5;弗2:18;西3:17)。


三.感恩的祈祷是崇拜的一个特别部分(腓4:6),是上帝向万人所吩咐的(诗65:2);为要祈祷蒙悦纳,必须奉圣子的名(约14:13,14;彼前2:5),藉圣灵的帮助(罗8:26),照上帝的旨意(约壹5:14),用悟性、敬畏、谦卑、热忱、信心、爱心和恒心去求(诗47:7;传5:1-2;来 12:28;创18:27;雅5:16;1:6-7;可11:24;太6:12,14-15;西4:2 ;弗6:18);若出声祈祷,当用人明白的言语(林前14:14)。


四.我们祈求,是为合乎圣经之事(约壹5:14),是为现在和将来活在世上的人(提前2:1-2; 约17:20;撒下7:29;得4:12);但不可为死人 祈祷(撒下12:21 -23;路16:25-26;启14:13),也不可为那些明明犯了至于死的罪的人祈祷(约壹5:16)。


五.存虔诚敬畏之心诵读圣经(徒15:21;启1:3),讲道纯正(提后4:2),用悟性、信心和敬畏顺服上帝而认真听道(雅1:22;徒10:33;太 13:19;来4:2;赛66:2),心被恩感歌唱诗篇(西3:16;弗5:19;雅 5:13),以及正当举行和按理领受基督所设立的圣礼,都 是宗教崇拜正常的一部分( 太28:19;林前11:23-29;徒2:42)。此外,宗教的宣誓(申6:13;尼10:29),许愿(赛19:21;传5:4-5),在特殊时节下严肃的禁食(珥2:12;斯4:16;太9:15;林前7:5),和感恩,(诗107;斯9:22),都要各按其时,以圣洁敬虔的方式举行(来12:28)。


六. 如今在福音时代,无论是祈祷,或是崇拜的其他部分,既不限于任何地方和任何方向,也不因举行的地方或面对的方向而更蒙悦纳(约4:21);但要用心灵和诚实(约4:23-24),随处敬拜上帝(玛1:11;提前2:8);每日(太6:11)在个人家庭中(耶10:25;申6:6-7;伯1:5;撒下6:18,20;彼前3:7;徒10 :2),独自在隐密处,都要如此行(太6:6;弗6:18);照样在公共集会中更要严肃地敬拜上帝;当上帝借着祂的圣言或护理招聚公共聚会时,不可漠不关心,或故意忽略,或停止聚会(赛56:6-7;来 10:25;箴1:20-21,24;8:34;徒13:42;路4:16;徒2:42)。


七.一般而言,把适当的时间分别出来敬拜上帝,乃是自然之理;同样,上 帝在圣经中用一种积极的、道德的、永久的诫命,特别指定七日的一日为安息日,要万世万代的人都向祂遵守此日为圣日(出20:8,10,11;赛 56:2-4,6,7)。这圣日从世界的起头到基督的复活 都是一周的末一日;从基督的复活起,改为一周的第一日(创2:2,3;林前16:1-2;徒20:7),在圣经中称为主日(启1:10),而且要持守它作为基督徒的安息日,直到世界的末了(出20:8,10;太 5:17-18)。


八. 人人都当向主遵守这安息日为圣,要适当预备自己的心灵,提前调整日常事务,然后不仅要整日停止自己的工作及有关属世职务和娱乐的言谈与思想,守圣安息日(出20:8,16:23,25,26,29,30;31:15-17; 赛58:13;尼13:15-19,21-22),而且要 用全部时间,或同众人,或在私下,举行礼拜,并尽本分行必要和慈善的事(赛58:13;太12:1-13)。

中文吕沛渊版

21.1 自 然启示之光显示: 有一位上帝,掌管万有、有至高主权 在 万有之上、本为善、又向万人行善,因此人当尽心、尽性、尽力、 尽意地敬畏、爱慕、赞美、求告、信靠、事奉祂。然而敬拜这位 真上帝,必须要按照祂自己设立的法则,限于祂自己启示的旨意, 才可蒙祂悦纳。所以我们不可按人的想像和发明,或撒但的提议, 或以任何可见的图像作为代表,或任何其他非圣经所规定的方 法,来敬拜上帝。


21.2 虔诚敬拜是惟独归给圣父、圣子、圣灵,三一上帝,敬拜不 能归给天使、圣徒、或任何其他受造物。自从人类堕落之后,只 有借着中保才能敬拜,也唯独以基督为中保才能敬拜


21.3 以感谢来祷告 , 是虔诚敬拜的主要部分,上帝吩咐万人都要 祷告 。如果祷告要蒙悦纳,就必得奉圣子的名、借着圣灵帮助、 遵上帝的旨意。祷告要用悟性、敬虔、谦卑、热心、信心、爱心、 恒心,如果是出声祷告,则必须要用人所明白的言语。


21.4 为事祷告,必须是合法的事;为人祷告,可以为各种各类的 人,但必须是现在活着的人,或未来将要出生的人;但不可为死 人祷告,也不可为那些明知已犯 了至于死的罪之人祷告。


21.5 敬拜上帝的崇拜聚会,内容通常包括下列项目: 以虔诚敬畏 的心诵读圣经;纯正的讲道与诚心的听道,皆以顺服神的心,用 悟性、信心、敬虔的态度;心被恩感歌唱诗篇;合宜施行并按理 领受基督所设立的圣礼。此外,特殊场合与节期的崇拜聚会,可 加上其他项目,例如: 向神宣誓、许愿、严肃的禁食、感恩等, 都当以圣洁敬虔的方式举行。


21.6 今日福音时代,无论是祷告或崇拜的其他任何项目,举行的 地点或朝向的方向皆不受限制,也不会因为聚会地方或朝向方向 的特别,就更蒙悦纳;相反的,我们应该在任何地方,皆以心灵 和诚实敬拜上帝。我们敬拜上帝,应当每天在各人家庭中、在个 人的灵修中、以及在更加庄严的公共崇拜聚会中。上帝既然以祂 的圣道或护理呼召我们参加公共崇拜聚会,我们就不可无心或故 意忽视,甚至停止聚会。


21.7 总的来说,应当将适当比例的时间分别出来敬拜上帝,是受 造界之律;所以上帝在圣经中,以积极的、道德的、永远的诫命, 特别指定七日中的一日为安息日,吩咐万代所有的人,向祂守这 日为圣。从世界之始到基督复活之前,这所指定的安息日为一周 的末一日;自从基督复活之后,安息日改为一周的头一日,在圣 经中称为主日,而且这日要继续下去,直到世界的末了,这是基 督徒的安息日。


21.8 这安息日是当向主守为圣日,人人事先适当预备自己的心、 安排好日常事务,在此圣日,要整日停止自己的属世职务和消遣 有关的工作、言谈、思想,来守圣洁的安息;不但如此,也要用 此日全部的时间参加公共崇拜或私下灵修敬拜,并履行必须与怜 悯的义务。

CHAPTER 21 OF RELIGIOUS WORSHIP, AND THE SABBATH DAY

1. The light of nature showeth that there is a God, who hath lordship and sovereignty over all, is good, and doth good unto all, and is therefore to be feared, loved, praised, called upon, trusted in, and served, with all the heart, and with all the soul, and with all the might. But the acceptable way of worshiping the true God is instituted by himself, and so limited by his own revealed will, that he may not be worshiped according to the imaginations and devices of men, or the suggestions of Satan, under any visible representation, or any other way not prescribed in the Holy Scripture.

2. Religious worship is to be given to God, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; and to him alone; not to angels, saints, or any other creature: and, since the fall, not without a Mediator; nor in the mediation of any other but of Christ alone.

3. Prayer, with thanksgiving, being one special part of religious worship, is by God required of all men: and, that it may be accepted, it is to be made in the name of the Son, by the help of his Spirit, according to his will, with understanding, reverence, humility, fervency, faith, love, and perseverance; and, if vocal, in a known tongue.

4. Prayer is to be made for things lawful; and for all sorts of men living, or that shall live hereafter: but not for the dead, nor for those of whom it may be known that they have sinned the sin unto death.

5. The reading of the Scriptures with godly fear, the sound preaching and conscionable hearing of the Word, in obedience unto God, with understanding, faith, and reverence, singing of psalms with grace in the heart; as also, the due administration and worthy receiving of the sacraments instituted by Christ, are all parts of the ordinary religious worship of God: beside religious oaths, vows, solemn fastings, and thanksgivings upon special occasions, which are, in their several times and seasons, to be used in an holy and religious manner.

6. Neither prayer, nor any other part of religious worship, is now, under the gospel, either tied unto, or made more acceptable by any place in which it is performed, or towards which it is directed: but God is to be worshiped everywhere, in spirit and truth; as, in private families daily, and in secret, each one by himself; so, more solemnly in the public assemblies, which are not carelessly or willfully to be neglected, or forsaken, when God, by his Word or providence, calleth thereunto.

7. As it is the law of nature, that, in general, a due proportion of time be set apart for the worship of God; so, in his Word, by a positive, moral, and perpetual commandment binding all men in all ages, he hath particularly appointed one day in seven, for a Sabbath, to be kept holy unto him: which, from the beginning of the world to the resurrection of Christ, was the last day of the week; and, from the resurrection of Christ, was changed into the first day of the week, which, in Scripture, is called the Lord's day, and is to be continued to the end of the world, as the Christian Sabbath.

8. This Sabbath is then kept holy unto the Lord, when men, after a due preparing of their hearts, and ordering of their common affairs beforehand, do not only observe an holy rest, all the day, from their own works, words, and thoughts about their worldly employments and recreations, but also are taken up, the whole time, in the public and private exercises of his worship, and in the duties of necessity and mercy.

Chapter XXI

Of Religious Worship, and the Sabbath Day

I. The light of nature shows that there is a God, who has lordship and sovereignty over all, is good, and does good unto all, and is therefore to be feared, loved, praised, called upon, trusted in, and served, with all the heart, and with all the soul, and with all the might.[1] But the acceptable way of worshipping the true God is instituted by Himself, and so limited by His own revealed will, that He may not be worshipped according to the imaginations and devices of men, or the suggestions of Satan, under any visible representation, or any other way not prescribed in the holy Scripture.[2]

II. Religious worship is to be given to God, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; and to Him alone;[3] not to angels, saints, or any other creature:[4] and, since the fall, not without a Mediator; nor in the mediation of any other but of Christ alone.[5]

III. Prayer, with thanksgiving, being one special part of religious worship,[6] is by God required of all men:[7] and, that it may be accepted, it is to be made in the name of the Son,[8] by the help of His Spirit,[9] according to His will,[10] with understanding, reverence, humility, fervency, faith, love and perseverance;[11] and, if vocal, in a known tongue.[12]

IV. Prayer is to be made for things lawful;[13] and for all sorts of men living, or that shall live hereafter:[14] but not for the dead,[15] nor for those of whom it may be known that they have sinned the sin unto death.[16]

V. The reading of the Scriptures with godly fear,[17] the sound preaching[18] and conscionable hearing of the Word, in obedience unto God, with understanding, faith and reverence,[19] singing of psalms with grace in the heart;[20] as also, the due administration and worthy receiving of the sacraments instituted by Christ, are all parts of the ordinary religious worship of God:[21] beside religious oaths,[22] vows,[23] solemn fastings,[24] and thanksgivings upon special occasions,[25] which are, in their several times and seasons, to be used in an holy and religious manner.[26]

VI. Neither prayer, nor any other part of religious worship, is now, under the Gospel, either tied unto, or made more acceptable by any place in which it is performed, or towards which it is directed:[27] but God is to be worshipped everywhere,[28] in spirit and truth;[29] as, in private families[30] daily,[31] and in secret, each one by himself;[32] so, more solemnly in the public assemblies, which are not carelessly or wilfully to be neglected, or forsaken, when God, by His Word or providence, calls thereunto.[33]

VII. As it is the law of nature, that, in general, a due proportion of time be set apart for the worship of God; so, in His Word, by a positive, moral, and perpetual commandment binding all men in all ages, He has particularly appointed one day in seven, for a Sabbath, to be kept holy unto him:[34] which, from the beginning of the world to the resurrection of Christ, was the last day of the week: and, from the resurrection of Christ, was changed into the first day of the week,[35] which, in Scripture, is called the Lord's Day,[36] and is to be continued to the end of the world, as the Christian Sabbath.[37]

VIII. This Sabbath is to be kept holy unto the Lord when men, after a due preparing of their hearts, and ordering of their common affairs beforehand, do not only observe an holy rest all the day from their own works, words, and thoughts about their worldly employments and recreations,[38] but also are taken up the whole time in the public and private exercises of His worship, and in the duties of necessity and mercy.[39]

证明经文

1 罗一20 自从造天地以来,神的永能和神性是明明可知的,虽是眼不能见,但借着所造之物,就可以晓得,叫人无可推诿。十12犹太人和希利尼人,并没有分别。因为众人同有一位主,他也厚待一切求告他的人。徒十七24因为你有些奇怪的事,传到我们耳中。我们愿意知道这些事是什么意思。;诗一一九68你本为善,所行的也善。求你将你的律例教训我。卅一23耶和华的圣民哪,你们都要爱他!耶和华保护诚实人,足足报应行事骄傲的人。十八3我要求告当赞美的耶和华,这样我必从仇敌手中被救出来。六二8你们众民当时时倚靠他,在他面前倾心吐意。 神是我们的避难所。〔细拉〕;耶十7万国的王啊,谁不敬畏你?敬畏你本是合宜的;因为在列国的智慧人中,虽有政权的尊荣,也不能比你。书廿四14现在你们要敬畏耶和华,诚心实意地事奉他,将你们列祖在大河那边和在埃及所事奉的神除掉,去事奉耶和华。可十二33 并且尽心、尽智、尽力爱他,又爱人如己,就比一切燔祭和各样祭祀好得多。

2 申十二32凡我所吩咐的,你们都要谨守遵行,不可加添,也不可删减。太十五9他们将人的吩咐当作道理教导人,所以拜我也是枉然。四9-10对他说:“你若俯伏拜我,我就把这一切都赐给你。耶稣说:“撒但(注:“撒但”就是“抵挡”的意思,乃魔鬼的别名)退去吧!因为经上记著说:‘当拜主你的 神,单要事奉他。’” 徒十七25也不用人手服事,好像缺少甚么;自己倒将生命、气息、万物赐给万人。出廿4不可为自己雕刻偶像;也不可做甚么形像彷佛上天、下地和地底下、水中的百物。5不可跪拜那些像;也不可事奉它,因为我耶和华你的 神,是忌邪的 神。恨我的,我必追讨他的罪,自父及子,直到三四代;6爱我、守我诫命的,我必向他们发慈爱,直到千代。 西二23 这些规条使人徒有智慧之名,用私意崇拜,自表谦卑,苦待己身,其实在克制肉体的情欲上,是毫无功效。

3 太四10耶稣说:“撒但(注:“撒但”就是“抵挡”的意思,乃魔鬼的别名)退去吧!因为经上记著说:‘当拜主你的神,单要事奉他。’”约五23叫人都尊敬子如同尊敬父一样。不尊敬子的,就是不尊敬差子来的父。林后十三14愿主耶稣基督的恩惠、 神的慈爱、圣灵的感动,常与你们众人同在!;启五11我们既知道主是可畏的,所以劝人。但我们在 神面前是显明的,盼望在你们的良心里也是显明的。12我们不是向你们再举荐自己,乃是叫你们因我们有可夸之处,好对那凭外貌不凭内心夸口的人,有言可答。13我们若果颠狂,是为 神;若果谨守,是为你们。

4 西二18不可让人因著故意谦虚和敬拜天使,就夺去你们的奖赏。这等人拘泥在所见过的(注:有古卷作“这等人窥察所没有见过的”),随著自己的欲心,无故地自高自大;启十九10我就俯伏在他脚前要拜他。他说:“千万不可!我和你,并你那些为耶稣作见证的弟兄同是作仆人的。你要敬拜 神。因为预言中的灵意乃是为耶稣作见证。” 罗一25 他们将 神的真实变为虚谎,去敬拜事奉受造之物,不敬奉那造物的主。主乃是可称颂的,直到永远。阿们!

5 约十四6耶稣说:“我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉著我,没有人能到父那里去。提前二5因为只有一位 神,在 神和人中间,只有一位中保,乃是降世为人的基督耶稣。弗二18你们得救是本乎恩,也因著信。这并不是出于自己,乃是 神所赐的; 西三17无论做甚么,或说话、或行事,都要奉主耶稣的名,藉著他感谢父神。

6 腓四6应当一无挂虑,只要凡事藉著祷告、祈求和感谢,将你们所要的告诉神。

7 诗六十五2听祷告的主啊,凡有血气的都要来就你。

8 约十四13你们奉我的名无论求甚么,我必成就,叫父因儿子得荣耀。14你们若奉我的名求甚么,我必成就。彼前二5 你们来到主面前,也就像活石,被建造成为灵宫,作圣洁的祭司,藉著耶稣基督奉献 神所悦纳的灵祭。

9 罗八26 况且,我们的软弱有圣灵帮助,我们本不晓得当怎样祷告,只是圣灵亲自用说不出来的叹息替我们祷告。

10 约壹五14 我们若照他的旨意求甚么,他就听我们,这是我们向他所存坦然无惧的心。

11 诗四十七7因为 神是全地的王,你们要用悟性歌颂! 传五1-有一个人,名叫亚拿尼亚,同他的妻子撒非喇卖了田产,2把价银私自留下几分,他的妻子也知道,其余的几分拿来放在使徒脚前。来十二28所以,我们既得了不能震动的国,就当感恩,照 神所喜悦的,用虔诚、敬畏的心事奉 神。创十八27亚伯拉罕说:“我虽然是灰尘,还敢对主说话。雅五16所以你们要彼此认罪,互相代求,使你们可以得医治。义人祈祷所发的力量是大有功效的。一6只要凭著信心求,一点不疑惑;因为那疑惑的人,就像海中的波浪,被风吹动翻腾。7这样的人不要想从主那里得甚么。可十一24所以我告诉你们,凡你们祷告祈求的,无论是甚么,只要信是得著的,就必得著。太六12门徒就出去传道,叫人悔改;14耶稣的名声传扬出来。希律王听见了,就说:“施洗的约翰从死里复活了,所以这些异能由他里面发出来。” 15但别人说:“是以利亚。”又有人说:“是先知,正像先知中的一位。” 西四2你们要恒切祷告,在此警醒感恩;弗六18因为晓得各人所行的善事,不论是为奴的、是自主的,都必按所行的,得主的赏赐。

12 林前十四14 我若用方言祷告,是我的灵祷告,但我的悟性没有果效。

13 约壹五14我们若照他的旨意求甚么,他就听我们,这是我们向他所存坦然无惧的心。

14 提前二1我劝你第一要为万人恳求、祷告、代求、祝谢, 2为君王和一切在位的,也该如此,使我们可以敬虔、端正,平安无事地度日。约十七20我不但为这些人祈求,也为那些因他们的话信我的人祈求;撒下七29现在求你赐福与仆人的家,可以永存在你面前。主耶和华啊!这是你所应许的,愿你永远赐福与仆人的家。”得四12 愿耶和华从这少年女子赐你后裔,使你的家像她玛从犹大所生法勒斯的家一般。”

15 撒下十二21臣仆问他说:“你所行的是甚么意思?孩子活著的时候,你禁食哭泣; 孩子死了,你倒起来吃饭。” 22大卫说:“孩子还活著,我禁食哭泣,因为我想,或者耶和华怜恤我,使孩子不死也未可知, 23孩子死了,我何必禁食?我岂能使他返回呢?我必往他那里去,他却不能回我这里来。”路十六25亚伯拉罕说:‘儿啊,你该回想你生前享过福,拉撒路也受过苦;如今他在这里得安慰,你倒受痛苦。 26不但这样,并且在你我之间,有深渊限定,以致人要从这边过到你们那边是不能的;要从那边过到我们这边也是不能的。’ 启十四13 我听见从天上有声音说:“你要写下,从今以后,在主里面而死的人有福了!”圣灵说:“是的,他们息了自己的劳苦,做工的果效也随著他们。”

16 约壹五16 人若看见弟兄犯了不至于死的罪,就当为他祈求,神必将生命赐给他;有至于死的罪,我不说当为这罪祈求。

17 徒十五21因为从古以来,摩西的书在各城有人传讲,每逢安息日在会堂里诵读。” 启一3 念这书上预言的和那些听见又遵守其中所记载的,都是有福的,因为日期近了。

18 提后四2务要传道!无论得时不得时,总要专心,并用百般的忍耐,各样的教训,责备人,警戒人,劝勉人。

19 雅一22只是你们要行道,不要单单听道,自己欺哄自己。 徒十33所以我立时打发人去请你。你来了很好,现今我们都在神面前,要听主所吩咐你的一切话。” 太十三19凡听见天国道理不明白的,那恶者就来,把所撒在他心里的夺了去,这就是撒在路旁的了; 来四2因为有福音传给我们,像传给他们一样;只是所听见的道与他们无益,因为他们没有信心与所听见的道调和。赛六十六2 耶和华说:“这一切都是我手所造的,所以就都有了。但我所看顾的,就是虚心(注:“虚心”原文作“贫穷”)痛悔、因我话而战兢的人。

20 西三16当用各样的智慧,把基督的道理丰丰富富地存在心里(注:或作“当把基督的道理丰丰富富地存在心里,以各样的智慧”),用诗章、颂词、灵歌,彼此教导,互相劝戒,心被恩感,歌颂 神。;弗五19当用诗章、颂词、灵歌彼此对说,口唱心和地赞美主。雅五13你们中间有受苦的呢,他就该祷告;有喜乐的呢,他就该歌颂。

21 太廿八19所以,你们要去,使万民作我的门徒,奉父、子、圣灵的名给他们施洗(注:或作“给他们施洗,归于父、子、圣灵的名)。林前十一23-29我当日传给你们的,原是从主领受的,就是主耶稣被卖的那一夜,拿起饼来,24祝谢了,就擘开,说:“这是我的身体,为你们舍的(注:“舍”有古卷作“擘开”)。你们应当如此行,为的是记念我。” 25饭后,也照样拿起杯来,说:“这杯是用我的血所立的新约。你们每逢喝的时候,要如此行,为的是记念我。” 26你们每逢吃这饼,喝这杯,是表明主的死,直等到他来。27所以,无论何人不按理吃主的饼、喝主的杯,就是干犯主的身、主的血了。28人应当自己省察,然后吃这饼、喝这杯。29因为人吃喝,若不分辨是主的身体,就是吃喝自己的罪了。徒二42都恒心遵守使徒的教训,彼此交接,擘饼,祈祷。

22 申六13你要敬畏耶和华你的神,事奉他,指著他的名起誓。尼十29都随从他们贵胄的弟兄,发咒起誓,必遵行神藉他仆人摩西所传的律法,谨守遵行耶和华我们主的一切诫命、典章、律例;

23 赛十九21耶和华必被埃及人所认识,在那日,埃及人必认识耶和华,也要献祭物和供物敬拜他,并向耶和华许愿还愿。传五4-你向 神许愿,偿还不可迟延,因他不喜悦愚昧人,所以你许的愿应当偿还。 5你许愿不还,不如不许。徒十八18 保罗又住了多日,就辞别了弟兄,坐船往叙利亚去,百基拉、亚居拉和他同去。他因为许过愿,就在坚革哩剪了头发。

24 珥二12耶和华说:“虽然如此,你们应当禁食、哭泣、悲哀,一心归向我。” 斯四16“你当去招聚书珊城所有的犹大人,为我禁食三昼三夜,不吃不喝;我和我的宫女也要这样禁食。然后我违例进去见王,我若死就死吧!” 太九15耶稣对他们说:“新郎和陪伴之人同在的时候,陪伴之人岂能哀恸呢?但日子将到,新郎要离开他们,那时候他们就要禁食。 林前七5 夫妻不可彼此亏负,除非两相情愿,暂时分房,为要专心祷告方可;以后仍要同房,免得撒但趁著你们情不自禁引诱你们。

25 诗一○七1-43(略)斯九22 以这月的两日为犹大人脱离仇敌得平安、转忧为喜、转悲为乐的吉日。在这两日设筵欢乐,彼此馈送礼物,周济穷人。

26 来十二28 所以,我们既得了不能震动的国,就当感恩,照 神所喜悦的,用虔诚、敬畏的心事奉 神。

27 约四21 耶稣说:“妇人,你当信我。时候将到,你们拜父也不在这山上,也不在耶路撒冷。

28 玛一11万军之耶和华说:“从日出之地到日落之处,我的名在外邦中必尊为大。在各处,人必奉我的名烧香,献洁净的供物。因为我的名在外邦中必尊为大。提前二8 我愿男人无忿怒,无争论(注:或作“疑惑”),举起圣洁的手,随处祷告。

29 约四23时候将到,如今就是了。那真正拜父的,要用心灵和诚实拜他,因为父要这样的人拜他。 24神是个灵(注:或无“个”字),所以拜他的,必须用心灵和诚实拜他。”

30 耶十25愿你将忿怒倾在不认识你的列国中,和不求告你名的各族上。因为他们吞了雅各,不但吞了,而且灭绝,把他的住处变为荒场。申六6我今日所吩咐你的话都要记在心上, 7也要殷勤教训你的儿女,无论你坐在家里,行在路上,躺下,起来,都要谈论;伯一5筵宴的日子过了,约伯打发人去叫他们自洁。他清早起来,按著他们众人的数目献燔祭;因为他说:“恐怕我儿子犯了罪,心中弃掉 神。”约伯常常这样行。撒下六18大卫献完了燔祭和平安祭,就奉万军之耶和华的名给民祝福,20大卫回家要给眷属祝福,扫罗的女儿米甲出来迎接他说:“以色列王今日在臣仆的婢女眼前露体,如同一个轻贱人无耻露体一样,有好大的荣耀啊!”彼前三7你们作丈夫的也要按情理和妻子同住(注:“情理”原文作“知识”),因她比你软弱(注:“比你软弱”原文作“是软弱的器皿”),与你一同承受生命之恩的,所以要敬重她。这样,便叫你们的祷告没有阻碍。徒十2 他是个虔诚人,他和全家都敬畏 神,多多周济百姓,常常祷告神。

31 太六11我们日用的饮食,今日赐给我们。书廿四15 若是你们以事奉耶和华为不好,今日就可以选择所要事奉的:是你们列祖在大河那边所事奉的神呢?是你们所住这地的亚摩利人的神呢?至于我和我家,我们必定事奉耶和华。”

32 太六6你祷告的时候,要进你的内屋,关上门,祷告你在暗中的父,你父在暗中察看,必然报答你。弗六18 靠著圣灵,随时多方祷告祈求,并要在此警醒不倦,为众圣徒祈求,

33 赛五十六6还有那些与耶和华联合的外邦人,要事奉他,要爱耶和华的名,要作他的仆人,就是凡守安息日不干犯、又持守他(注:原文作“我”)约的人。 7我必领他们到我的圣山,使他们在祷告我的殿中喜乐。他们的燔祭和平安祭,在我坛上必蒙悦纳。因我的殿必称为万民祷告的殿!”来十25你们不可停止聚会,好像那些停止惯了的人,倒要彼此劝勉。既知道(注:原文作“看见”)那日子临近,就更当如此。箴一20智慧在街市上呼喊,在宽阔处发声, 21在热闹街头喊叫,在城门口、在城中发出言语,24我呼唤,你们不肯听从;我伸手,无人理会。八34听从我,日日在我门口仰望,在我门框旁边等候的,那人便为有福。徒十三42他们出会堂的时候,众人请他们到下安息日再讲这话给他们听。二43众人都惧怕。使徒又行了许多奇事、神迹。路四16耶稣来到拿撒勒,就是他长大的地方。在安息日,照他平常的规矩进了会堂,站起来要念圣经。

34 出廿8当记念安息日,守为圣日。10但第七日是向耶和华你 神当守的安息日。这一日你和你的儿女、仆婢、牲畜,并你城里寄居的客旅,无论何工都不可做, 11因为六日之内,耶和华造天、地、海和其中的万物,第七日便安息,所以耶和华赐福与安息日,定为圣日。;赛五十六2谨守安息日而不干犯,禁止己手而不作恶;如此行、如此持守的人便为有福。”4因为耶和华如此说:“那些谨守我的安息日,拣选我所喜悦的事,持守我约的太监,6还有那些与耶和华联合的外邦人,要事奉他,要爱耶和华的名,要作他的仆人,就是凡守安息日不干犯、又持守他(注:原文作“我”)约的人。 7我必领他们到我的圣山,使他们在祷告我的殿中喜乐。他们的燔祭和平安祭,在我坛上必蒙悦纳。因我的殿必称为万民祷告的殿!”

35 创二2到第七日, 神造物的工已经完毕,就在第七日歇了他一切的工,安息了。 3神赐福给第七日,定为圣日,因为在这日 神歇了他一切创造的工,就安息了。林前十六1论到为圣徒捐钱,我从前怎样吩咐加拉太的众教会,你们也当怎样行。 2每逢七日的第一日,各人要照自己的进项抽出来留著,免得我来的时候现凑。徒廿7 七日的第一日,我们聚会擘饼的时候,保罗因为要次日起行,就与他们讲论,直讲到半夜。

36 启一10 当主日,我被圣灵感动,听见在我后面有大声音如吹号,说:

37 出廿8当记念安息日,守为圣日。10但第七日是向耶和华你 神当守的安息日。这一日你和你的儿女、仆婢、牲畜,并你城里寄居的客旅,无论何工都不可做;太五17莫想我来要废掉律法和先知;我来不是要废掉,乃是要成全。 18我实在告诉你们:就是到天地都废去了,律法的一点一画也不能废去,都要成全。

38 出廿8当记念安息日,守为圣日。十六23摩西对他们说:“耶和华这样说:‘明天是圣安息日,是向耶和华守的圣安息日,你们要烤的就烤了,要煮的就煮了,所剩下的都留到早晨。’”25摩西说:“你们今天吃这个吧!因为今天是向耶和华守的安息日,你们在田野必找不著了。 26六天可以收取,第七天乃是安息日,那一天必没有了。”29-你们看!耶和华既将安息日赐给你们,所以第六天他赐给你们两天的食物,第七天各人要住在自己的地方,不许甚么人出去。” 30于是,百姓第七天安息了。卅一15六日要做工,但第七日是安息圣日,是向耶和华守为圣的;凡在安息日做工的,必要把他治死。’ 16故此,以色列人要世世代代守安息日为永远的约。 17这是我和以色列人永远的证据,因为六日之内耶和华造天地,第七日便安息舒畅。” 赛五十八13你若在安息日掉转(注:或作“谨慎”)你的脚步,在我圣日不以操作为喜乐,称安息日为可喜乐的,称耶和华的圣日为可尊重的,而且尊敬这日,不办自己的私事,不随自己的私意,不说自己的私话;尼十三15那些日子,我在犹大见有人在安息日□酒(注:原文作“踹酒□”),搬运禾捆,驮在驴上,又把酒、葡萄、无花果和各样的担子,在安息日担入耶路撒冷,我就在他们卖食物的那日,警戒他们。 16又有推罗人住在耶路撒冷,他们把鱼和各样货物运进来,在安息日卖给犹大人。 17我就斥责犹大的贵胄说:“你们怎么行这恶事,犯了安息日呢? 18从前你们列祖岂不是这样行,以致我们 神使一切灾祸临到我们和这城吗?现在你们还犯安息日,使忿怒越发临到以色列!” 19在安息日的前一日,耶路撒冷城门有黑影的时候,我就吩咐人将门关锁,不过安息日不准开放。我又派我几个仆人管理城门,免得有人在安息日担甚么担子进城。21我就警戒他们说:“你们为何在城外住宿呢?若再这样,我必下手拿办你们。”从此以后,他们在安息日不再来了。 22我吩咐利未人洁净自己,来守城门,使安息日为圣。我的 神啊,求你因这事记念我,照你的大慈爱怜恤我。

39 赛五十八13你若在安息日掉转(注:或作“谨慎”)你的脚步,在我圣日不以操作为喜乐,称安息日为可喜乐的,称耶和华的圣日为可尊重的,而且尊敬这日,不办自己的私事,不随自己的私意,不说自己的私话;太十二1-13。那时,耶稣在安息日,从麦地经过。他的门徒饿了,就掐起麦穗来吃。法利赛人看见,就对耶稣说,看哪,你的门徒作安息日不可作的事了。耶稣对他们说,经上记着大卫和跟从他的人饥饿之时所作的事,你们没有念过吗?他怎么进了神的殿,吃了陈设饼,这饼不是他和跟从他的人可以吃得,惟独祭司才可以吃。再者,律法上所记的,当安息日,祭司在殿里犯了安息日,还是没有罪,你们没有念过吗?但我告诉你们,在这里有一人比殿更大。我喜爱怜恤,不喜爱祭祀。你们若明白这话的意思,就不将无罪的,当作有罪的了。因为人子是安息日的主。耶稣离开那地方,进了一个会堂。那里有一个人,枯干了一只手。有人问耶稣说,安息日治病,可以不可以。意思是要控告他。耶稣说,你们中间谁有一只羊,当安息日掉在坑里,不把他抓住拉上来呢?人比羊何等贵重呢。所以在安息日作善事是可以的。于是对那人说,伸出手来。他把手一伸,手就复了原,和那只手一样。


[1] ROM 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse. ACT 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands. PSA 119:68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes. JER 10:7 Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to thee doth it appertain: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto thee. PSA 31:23 O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer. PSA 18:3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. ROM 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. PSA 62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. JOS 24:14 Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord. MAR 12:33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

[2] DEU 12:32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it. MAT 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. ACT 17:25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things. MAT 4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. (see also DEU 4:15-20) EXO 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

[3] MAT 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. JOH 5:23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. 2CO 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.

[4] COL 2:18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind. REV 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. ROM 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

[5] JOH 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 1TI 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. EPH 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. COL 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

[6] PHI 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

[7] PSA 65:6 Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power.

[8] JOH 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 1PE 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

[9] ROM 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

[10] 1JO 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us.

[11] PSA 47:7 For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. ECC 5:1 Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil. 2 Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few. HEB 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: GEN 17:27 And all the men of his house, born in the house, and bought with money of the stranger, were circumcised with him. JAM 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. JAM 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. MAR 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. MAT 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. COL 4:2 Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; EPH 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

[12] 1CO 14:14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.

[13] 1JO 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us.

[14] 1TI 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. JOH 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word. 2SA 7:29 Therefore now let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may continue for ever before thee: for thou, O Lord God, hast spoken it: and with thy blessing let the house of thy servant be blessed for ever. RUT 4:12 And let thy house be like the house of Pharez, whom Tamar bare unto Judah, of the seed which the Lord shall give thee of this young woman.

[15] 2SA 12:21 Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread. 22 And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live? 23 But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me. LUK 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. REV 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

[16] 1JO 5:16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

[17] ACT 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day. REV 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

[18] 2TI 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

[19] JAM 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. ACT 10:33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God. MAT 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. HEB 4:2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. ISA 66:2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

[20] COL 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. EPH 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. JAM 5:13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

[21] MAT 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 1CO 11:23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: 24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. 27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. ACT 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

[22] DEU 6:13 Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. NEH 10:29 They clave to their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse, and into an oath, to walk in God's law, which was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the Lord our Lord, and his judgments and his statutes.

[23] ISA 19:21 And the Lord shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the Lord in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the Lord, and perform it. ECC 5:4 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. 5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.

[24] JOE 2:12 Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning. EST 4:16 Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. MAT 9:15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. 1CO 7:5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

[25] (PSA 107 throughout) EST 9:22 As the days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies, and the month which was turned unto them from sorrow to joy, and from mourning into a good day: that they should make them days of feasting and joy, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor.

[29] JOH 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

JOB 1:5 And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually. 2SA 6:18 And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts. 20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself! 1PE 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

HEB 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. PRO 1:20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: 21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying. 24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded. PRO 8:34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. ACT 13:42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.

ACT 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

[34] EXO 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. ISA 56:2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. 4 For thus saith the Lord unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant. 6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; 7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

[35] GEN 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. 1CO 16:1 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. ACT 20:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

MAT 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

[38] EXO 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. EXO 16:23 And he said unto them, This is that which the Lord hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the Lord: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning. 25 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the Lord: to day ye shall not find it in the field. 26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none. 29 See, for that the Lord hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day. 30 So the people rested on the seventh day. EXO 31:15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. ISA 58:13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words. NEH 13:15 In those days saw I in Judah some treading wine presses on the sabbath, and bringing in sheaves, and lading asses; as also wine, grapes, and figs, and all manner of burdens, which they brought into Jerusalem on the sabbath day: and I testified against them in the day wherein they sold victuals. 16 There dwelt men of Tyre also therein, which brought fish, and all manner of ware, and sold on the sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem. 17 Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said unto them, What evil thing is this that ye do, and profane the sabbath day? 18 Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath. 19 And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath: and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath day. 21 Then I testified against them, and said unto them, Why lodge ye about the wall? if ye do so again, I will lay hands on you. From that time forth came they no more on the sabbath. 22 And I commanded the Levites that they should cleanse themselves, and that they should come and keep the gates, to sanctify the sabbath day. Remember me, O my God, concerning this also, and spare me according to the greatness of thy mercy.

[39] ISA 58:13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words.
