The High Priestly Prayer of Jesus

The High Priestly Prayer of Jesus
‪Author: Pat Aman‬

We are coming into the season of Easter. Please study these scriptures. We must realize what God sacrifice for us, so our sins could be forgiven. Yes, washed away by the blood of His precious Son, Jesus.

I am praying about sharing the ten day walk with you during Passover and Easter. I myself, enjoy taking part in this walk every year. It refreshes my soul and spirit.

Now, this about the beginning of this day in the life of Jesus and His disciples. The Passover meal lays on the table half eaten. The men who came to be with their Master have more answers and more questions now than they have ever had ever before. Emotions have ebbed from sorrow to glory to confusion. Jesus has spoken directly with them tonight. No parables or leading questions. Their faith has taken its first steps into a time when Jesus would no longer be with them physically. Everything the Lord can do to prepare His friends for the trials of the hours ahead has been done. The Son now turns His attention to the matter at hand.

John 17:1-3 These things Jesus spoke; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee, 2 even as Thou gavest Him authority over all mankind, that to all whom Thou hast given Him, He may give eternal life. 3 “And this is eternal life, that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent. (NAS)

The hour has come indeed. This hour has been on the heart and mind of the Trinity since before the world was created from the power of the voice of the Son saying, “Let their be…”. God and Adam and Eve had an intimate fellowship with God before the fall. It was the desire of God to have fellowship with man.

Gen 3:8-9 And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 Then the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?”

Did God not know what had happened? Of course He did. He knew that Adam and Eve would eat the apple. He knew it before He created the first thing.

Rev 13:8 And all who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain. (NAS)

Note, “whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world”. This also means that the ones who’s names have been written there, were there from the foundation of the world. Before Adam, before there was light, before God said, “Let there be…”, the names of every person who
would accept God’s gift of salvation was scribed in The Book of Life.
Nothing we ever do surprises God. It may indeed grieve Him, but He knew we would grieve Him. Jesus speaks of authority given to Him by the Father. The Father relinquished His right to control in this area to the Son. The Trinity is such a difficult concept for our finite minds. One member of this Triune
Being willingly surrendered authority in an arena of control to another Member.

Luke 20:42-44 “For David himself says in the book of Psalms, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, 43 Until I make Thine l enemies a footstool for Thy feet.”‘ 44 “David therefore calls Him ‘Lord,’ and how is He his son?” (NAS)

Acts 2:34-35 “For it was not David who ascended into heaven, but he
himself says: ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, 35 Until I
make Thine enemies a footstool for Thy feet.”‘ (NAS)

Jesus came to break the power of darkness and the enemy of our souls. His mission, which He requested of the Father here, was to submit the enemies of the Father to the Father. And now, the moment of the final battle for the souls of all men was at hand.

Eternal life has been sought after by adventurers and seekers down
through the ages. In the core of our being there is a chord that resonates with the power of this force of life. We have an inborn desire to protect that life and to struggle against things and circumstances that would harm
that life. Life is a spiritual force. It was given by God in the creation
and will pulse beyond the end of time. Physical life is the visible
manifestation of life. The physical ages, is damaged or otherwise falters and fails. But the power, the force that is that person continues. They are simply released from the shackles of this physical body and world.

John 5:28-29 “Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs shall hear His voice, 29 and shall come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.
(NAS)

Rom 2:5-8 But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, 6 who will render to every man according to his deeds: 7 to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and
immortality, eternal life; 8 but to those who are selfishly ambitious and do not obey the truth, but
obey unrighteousness, wrath and indignation. (NAS)

Eternal life, according to Jesus, is to know God. In knowing God personally, His salvation is given to you. This is not a mental wisdom of
acknowledging the existence or even the power of God. It is to know Him as Savior and Lord. In this knowledge there is a gratefulness beyond measure for the gift of salvation and the chance to know Him. Through all eternity
Jesus will be revealing to us, facets of His infinite person. And, not
unlike the parable of the talents; to the ones who have, more will be
given. And to the ones who have not, even the small knowledge of God will be taken away from them. They will live on through eternity separated from God knowing they have not a chance of returning to fellowship with Him. That alone will be agony enough for all the ages to come.

Please, again, study God’s Word…
Make sure you know Jesus as your personal Savior and Lord.

Make sure you absolutely know without a doubt where you will spend eternity…

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentine’s Day

My prayer is God will touch you with a love you have never felt before.

“The most loving thing we can do for others is love God more than we love them. For if we love God more, we will love others with a true love. The love of God.“ Quote Author: Pat Aman

The Bible explains love in – 1 Corinthians 13: 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails.

God showed His greatest love towards us by giving His Son Jesus to die for our sins.- John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

I love the song, “The Rose”
It was written by Los Angeles singer/songwriter Amanda McBroom. Bette Midler recorded it for the 1980 movie of the same name, which she starred in.

The songs tells us never to give up. Even in times we feel no love. But, to feel love, we must give love…

We must love ourselves before we can truly love others.

The Rose

Some say love, it is a river
that drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
that leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
an endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
and you it’s only seed.

It’s the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance.
It’s the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance.
It’s the one who won’t be taken,
who cannot seem to give,
and the soul afraid of dyin’
that never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been to long,
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong,
just remember in the winter
far beneath the winter snows
lies the seed that with the sun’s love
in the spring becomes the rose.

Never give up on Love. Sometimes love may just rest for a season, but,
after the winter, comes the spring, and the Rose (LOVE) will bloom again.

Remember, Love Conquers All

Blessings, Love and Prayers,
Pastor Pat Aman

Also, please know that: I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with Joy. Philippians 1: 3-4

I end each message with “My Blessings, Love & Prayers,” I truly mean that, and I pray for each of you every morning and evening.

Send Me

Author: Pat Aman

(Ephesians 1:18) “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of His calling……)”

I have learn through the years that you do not worry and think about the what-ifs, or the whys.  I have also learn that you do not question your abilities.  I know that I have many times come to a fork,  or crossing in the road that God has given me to travel.   There has been times that I have not known which road to take, but there has never been a time, that I doubted that I was not called to serve.   God may be calling you to serve Him.  Do you recognize His voice and know it is Him?  If you are questioning the voice, just simply wait on Him and say, “Yes”.  Don’t worry about the timing or the future. When the mighty wind blows, He will miraculously place them at your back. When the floods begin to rage. He may tell you to keep paddling in faith, believing, while He calms the seas. God’s calling is sure.  We don’t have to worry about making a way. If it is His will, He works all things out in His perfect way and timing.  And let me tell you, if God is calling you to move from one place to another.

He may be even calling you to change jobs.  You better do it.  By experience I know, that if you try to stay where you are, when you are suppose to be doing something else, you will be miserable and talk about trials and troubles, Honey you have not seen anything, until you go against what God wants for your life.

He calls us through, around, over, and under to serve. No foe can stop us, no poverty can starve us, no evil can diminish His call. For He has a glorious plan.  So, just say “yes”!

(Romans 10:14-15) “How, then can they call on the one they have notbelieved in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

There is a little poem I love.  It is called 

“Hear the Call”

Author: Unknown

I hear Jesus call to me,

There’s work for you to do.

I see many hurting souls,

Come, show them life anew.

You must reap the harvest,

Of those who search for me.

I still hear Him calling,

From sin I will set them free.

God, why must I be the one?

Why are You calling me?

Because they need your help, My child.

Then here am I, send me.

Touch The Hem Of His Garment

Touch The Hem Of His Garment 

Author: Pat Aman

The woman pushed through to just touch the hem of his garment.  She knew that she would be healed. 

I myself, knew that as I lay in bed nearly two years, that when at my lowest point, God awakened these scriptures just for me. 

I was worn out, burdened down and broken. I felt like, why me, Father God?

I know that many of you have also felt this way. You could not understand why you were going through so much pain and heartache!

I want to share what I received from God the day He allowed me to really understand what this women was going through.  He gave me a clearer view and showed me her unwavering faith. He showed me how she set her eyes on her healer, and did not let absolutely anything stand in her way.

I learned persistent Faith. 

This passage relates the account of a desperate woman  whose healing was the results of a great and persistent faith. Her illness made her ceremonially unclean and disqualified her from mixing with crowds of people, yet she was certain that “if only I may touch His clothes. I shall be made well”, 

(Mark 5:28), says, “For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well”. Jesus did not rebuke her, but delayed His mission to the home of Jairus, whose daughter was dying, in order to assure her healing.

Jesus later raised Jairus’s daughter from the dead, but here He took time to minister to one with positive, persistent faith.  That persistence is rewarded is not to suggest healing or any other work of God is earned by human effort. It rather illustrated the need to be bold in what we believe, to not be deterred by circumstance or discouraged by others. 

“All things are possible to him or her who believes. (Mark 9:23), and they all are by God’s grace (Ephesians 2: 8-9),  says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves. It is a gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast”.

See,  she did not let anyone stop her. Even though she was not supposed  to be in public because she was unclean. 

I went to the hospital to have a simple hernia repair in 2003, and I  contacted  surgical MRSA which means I should not be alive. MRSA is a highly contagious and deadly infectious disease. I was as she, unclean. 

MRSA  destroys the body.  

After over a year of fighting MRSA, I went back and had surgery to clean my insides out and remove the MRSA and what it had destroyed, I contacted surgical e-coli from this second surgery. I fought this infection for over a year. So, of over two years of fighting these infections I finally reached up, Father God reached down and healed me.  

Yes, I grabbed the hem of His garment and refused to let go.

Was it easy? NO! I felt depression, loneliness and desperation!

 I praise God that I finally allowed these scriptures hit me square in the face, and I realized then, that I needed to press through, touch the hem of Jesus’ garment, not let anything block my vision of a Jesus in the crowd. 

Maybe today you need to press through the crowd and touch the hem of the Master’s garment.

You have fought the disease of sickness even the disease of sin and it has beat you down. You are drowning in despair. You have no where to go but up. 

I want to tell you that Jesus is waiting for you to come to Him. He wants you to reach for the hem of His garment. 

Do not let the crowd stop you. Do not let the voices of the crowd cloud your vision. 

Set you hope on what is eternal and be healed. God has given us incredible promises. If you are running low on hope, go to the Bible to recharge! 

We must remember that – “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4: 17-18

Please know that our Hope causes us not to get discouraged, not to give up, because we have something to keep going for.

“Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6

Please now, stop, and let Jesus and let Jesus speak these words to you.

“And He said to her, “Daughter/Son, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.””Mark 5:34

Version.

“Laugh and Confuse The Devil”

“Laugh and Confuse The Devil” Author: Pat Aman

As Children of God, we need to laugh often. When we learn to laugh in our times of troubles, it defeats Satan.

(Proverbs 17:22) “A Merry Heart Does Good, Like Medicine, But A Broken Spirit Dries The Bones.”

First of all, think about it. The devil himself is sending out everythingin his power, demons and all, to try to defeat the children of God. And the sad thing about it is we are letting him. We need to learn to laugh in his face. See, when we are laughing, even in the time of trouble, it will confuse him. He will sit back, scratch his head, and will be thinking to himself, “Now I have sent out every demonic power I have to attack them, and they are laughing.” 

See, Satan is not all knowing. He cannot read our minds. He only knows what we speak. And when we speak negative things in our life, he knows he is winning the battle over us. A lot of times we are speaking negative things into existence in our own lives. We need to stop giving the devil ideas, he has enough on his own. We need to learn that sometimes it is just better to keep our mouths shut, that is unless we are going to laugh, give thanks, or praise God.

(Proverbs 18:21) “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

I can hear you now, “Pastor Pat, you just do not know!” 

Well I can tell you that maybe I do. I am 65 years old, and my life hasnot been a bed of roses. I could write a book on losses, hardships, disappointments, discouragement, sickness, and a few other things. But what good would it do to tell the devil everything he already knows? So I am just going to praise God, and thank Him for restoration. I am going to tell everyone about the joy, mercy, and grace of my Lord and Savior. As Christians we have given Satan too much lead way in our lives. We have given him too much credit. It is time we, as Christians, stop chasing Satan and demons and start chasing God, and He will take care of Satan and the demons. Again, stop giving Satan so much credit, and exert our power over him, In Jesus’ name.

(Matthew 16:18-19. And I also say to you, that you are Peter, on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it. 19. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” 

Remember, the rock is not Peter as an individual, since Jesus substituted a foundation rock. Jesus meant that He Himself is the Rock upon which the church is built, and the church is built out of those stones that have made their confession of faith in Him. That is us, His children, the Body of the Church, believers in Jesus Christ. In other words, when we as Christians stand up and take our authority over the Gates of Hell, which is the power of death, then hell and everything in it cannot advance intothe kingdom, nor claim victory over those who belong to God. Just as Peter was a representative of the church throughout the ages, Jesus is passing on to His church His authority or control to bind and to loose . And binding and loosing have to do with forbidding or permitting. In other words, Jesus is stating that the church will be empowered to continue in the privileged responsibility of leavening the earth with His kingdom power and provision. 

Just remember this, that as Children of God, you should have enough power to walk into a room where Satan and his demons are trying to enter or control, and they ask you where they need to go as they are running out of the room. 

See, they cannot stay in the Presence of God. And if God is your Lord and Savior, then the Presence of God is in you. So I will say again, stop giving the powers of hell so much credit. For they have none, but what you give to them. 

Blessings, Love and Prayers, 

Pastor Pat Aman 

Also please know that; I thank my God every  time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy For when I end each message with “My Love & Prayers,” I truly mean that,  for I pray for each of you every evening! 

( Philippians 1:3-4)

Your Passion And Purpose In Life

Your Passion And Purpose In Life

 A passion for life comes from fulfilling your purpose in life. Because God is your Creator, seek Him to find your purpose and passion in life. Because most of us do not seek God nor His purpose for our lives, we become bored, tired, dishearten, depressed, self-destructive, double-minded, and aimless when going about our daily activities.

We can only have a life-long passion for life by seeking God’s purpose in our lives and making ourselves available for that purpose. 

2 Timothy 2:21″If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use.” 

If we are not fulfilling God’s purpose for our lives, a life-long passion for life is impossible. If we choose not to make ourselves available for God’s use, we end up wallowing in sin, dishonor, purposelessness, self-destruction, and eventually eternal death separated from God forever.

We must remember that as God looks at us the body of Christ, he look at us as one. Why, because we are one body, born of one spirit. When God sees us, he sees many members parts of the body, but he see one body. He sees the body of Christ. He sees the body of anointing. We must understand itis not about God seeing all your individual needs. In fact if you read your Bible and Study, you will see you have no individual destiny outside of cooperate destiny. If you do not understand where you play in the big roll, you will not understand your individual roll. Because individual destiny is inside of cooperate destiny. 

We all must work together as a church to win the world to Christ. As you work in the cooperate anointing, you will soon realize and see that God has been directing you to your purpose in life. You destiny, through the gifts that he has given you. 

Do not ever think you are not important to God. He made you and placed you here on this earth to do his work. You are very special to him.

Just seek God, and he will grow your gifts, purpose and destiny. He will show you the direction he wants you to go.

Who Has Built Your House?

Who Has Built Your House?

Author: Pat Aman

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Psalm 127:1

There are at least three lessons in this text.

First, no project can succeed unless it is the Lord’s will. God is workingout his plan for his creation and it does not matter how hard we strive to go our own way, we will not succeed unless our way is God’s way.

Second, what God intends to build will get built. No force in heaven or on earth can stop God from doing what he has planned. His success is guaranteed.

Third, God will work with us to accomplish his will. He needs no human hands. The One who spoke worlds into existence can surely build a house on his own. But by his grace he has purposed to do some of his work through human laborers. We are not cast adrift into the world to live lives of meaningless mediocrity. We were created to follow hard after God, carrying out his will and working in his kingdom.

While we labor we do so with the assurances found in Psalm 127:1. As the people of God, we strive to walk according to his ways, avoiding irrelevant, unproductive tasks that do not conform to his will while pursuing wholeheartedly the work he has called us to do. And as we labor for him we know that our labor is not in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58). God will complete what he has begun and the fruit of our work will span eternity.

Pour Into Me, Lord

God is opening so many new doors this year. I stand amaze in His goodness, love, mercy and grace.

This is the reason I took some private time to pray and study. But, mostly to just sit in God’s presence and listen.

I did not let the noise around me, keep the fire burning wind of the Holy Spirit from engulfing me with a fresh anointing, a new Vision.

I thank God for pouring a new oil over me. I allowed Him to renew me, so I could accept and understand the anointing oil being poured into me.

All I can say to each of you would be, steal away into the arms of your Father God. He is waiting to hug you. To shield you. To share with you.

Are you ready?

Blessings, Love and Prayers,
Pastor Pat Aman

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew‬ ‭11:28-30‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The poem below was shared with me on November 7th, 2010, by a dear friend and sister, Kaye Carr.
She is in Heaven now, and I do miss her so very much.

I think we should, as Kaye said to me, “Pat, I think this world would be a better place to live, if everyone would follow the advice of this poem.”

Slow Me Down Lord
Author: ~ Wilfred A. Peterson~

Slow me down, Lord!
Ease the pounding of my heart
By the quieting of my mind.
Steady my harried pace
With a vision of the eternal reach of time.

Give me,
Amidst the confusions of my day,
The calmness of the everlasting hills.
Break the tensions of my nerves
With the soothing music
Of the singing streams
That live in my memory.

Help me to know
The healing power of sleep,
Teach me the art
Of taking minute vacations
Of slowing down
To look at a flower;
To chat with an old friend
Or make a new one;
To pat a stray dog;
To watch a spider build a web;
To smile at a child;
Or to read a few lines from a good book.

Remind me each day that
the race is not always to the swift;
That there is more to life
than increasing its speed.

Let me look upward
Into the branches of the towering oak
And know that it grew great and strong
Because it grew slowly and well.

Slow me down, Lord,
And inspire me to send my roots deep
Into the soil of life’s enduring values
That I may grow toward the stars
Of my greater destiny.

Life Is Not A Crap Shoot

Life Is Not A Crap Shoot

When seeking God’s will for your life have you ever gotten your Bible down and told God, now God, I am going to open my Bible to your scripture and the first scripture I read, I know will be what I am supposed to do. (Now, be honest, I do not want to have to pray for you. I know I am not the only one who has ever done that.)  But, when I  did let my Bible fall open to a page and started reading, it was not what I wanted to hear, so I tried it again. You know 2 out of 3 wins.

God has let me know real fast that He or His Word is not like shooting craps.

Sometimes I want to know more.  I want to be able to make the right decisions for my life.  I don’t want to go outside of the will of God and

find myself flailing about in the midst of consequences I actually bring upon myself.  I want more than anything to stay within the pathway He sets before me.  And while I want one thing, I have to accept the fact that what I want may not be the best choice for me or for others.

Ultimately, I want God’s best.  I take seriously the larger decisions in my life.  I think everything I do works together with God’s plan to build up His kingdom and grow me spiritually.  I have various folks in my life who influence my thinking; sometimes they just add to my confusion. Do I have an Amen to that last statement.

We sometimes allow things and people into our lives that God had not planned for us. When this happens, God does not change the landscape of our lives and put those things and people in His arrangement. He will try to straighten out the mess we have made when we let Him.  Key, when we let Him.

“For this world’s wisdom is foolishness with God, for it is written, He lays hold of the wise in their own craftiness.  And again, The Lord knows the thoughts and reasonings of the wise and recognizes how futile they are.”  1 Corinthians 3:19-20 

We try to reason everything out and the more we reason, the more we seek another’s counsel, the less we know and the more muddled our thoughts become.  That is when I retreat.  I actually stop talking to people about my quandary, my crossroad.  I sit quietly before the Lord and ask Him for His wisdom.  I rest until I have a clear answer.  That can be daunting.

Sometimes the answer seems totally out of sync with anything I’ve been advised.  I don’t know about you, but most times God leads me to act, not on logic, but on faith.  The leap may be frightening.  I tend to argue with God in these times, just like Moses saying he couldn’t speak before Pharaoh.  So God gives him Aaron to go along and help him.  

Sometimes I think all the things God used to make Pharaoh let Israel go, was to show Moses the power of God’s might.  I relate well to old Moses.  But that is because I take my eyes off God and put them on myself.  Moses was more concerned with his inadequacy than God’s adequacy.  Logic sees as far asone can see before the jump; faith sees God at the end of the jump.  

From that vantage point, we catapult with courage, knowing He provides a safe landing.

Hide God’s Word In Your Heart

While I have been off FB, I have noticed where a lot of people were just looking at the picture and quote I post, and do not read the of devotions. 

We must read and study God’s infallible word. It builds us up in Faith and Wisdom. Just looking at a picture with a quote does not continually help us grow in God. It makes us feel good for a moment, then slowly fades away when we are facing attacks of satan. Maybe even facing a mountain. But, being able to speak God’s word constantly over our life and the mountains builds us up, and grows our faith. Then when we reach the top of the mountain, we realize God deserves all the praise and honor. 

Psalm 119: 1-17 

1.Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.

2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.

4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.

5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!

6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.

9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.

11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

12 Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes.

13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.

15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

17 Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.
