I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
 Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.
 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:
 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.
 He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.
 For the LORD hath turned away the excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel: for the emptiers have emptied them out, and marred their vine branches.
 The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken.
 The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.
 He shall recount his worthies: they shall stumble in their walk; they shall make hast to the wall thereof, and the defence shall be prepared.
 The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be dissolved.
 And Huzzab shall be led away captive, she shall be brought up, and her maids shall lead her as with the voice of doves, tabering upon their breasts.
1 Timothy 5:17-21
 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.
 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
 I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.
 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
