December 3 (Daily Scripture)

Proverbs 21:15-25
[15] It is joy to the just to do judgment: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.
[16] The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
[17] He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
[18] The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright.
[19] It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.
[20] There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.
[21] He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
[22] A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.
[23] Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
[24] Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.
[25] The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour.

Isaiah 19:19-21
[19] In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.
[20] And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them.
[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.

Hebrews 11:32-40
[32] And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:
[33] Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
[34] Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
[35] Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
[36] And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
[37] They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
[38] (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
[39] And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
[40] God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

Matthew 10:37-42
[37] He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
[38] And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
[39] He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
[40] He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
[41] He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.
[42] And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
