The Armor of God (ENGLISH: Christian Standard Bible 2017)

ENGLISH: Christian Standard Bible 2017

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by his vast strength.

11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil.

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens.

13 For this reason take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand.

14 Stand, therefore, with truth like a belt around your waist, righteousness like armor on your chest,

15 and your feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace.

16 In every situation take up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit—which is the word of God.

18 Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.

The Lord is my Shepherd (ENGLISH: Christian Standard Bible 2017)

ENGLISH: Christian Standard Bible 2017

Psalms 23

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I have what I need.

2 He lets me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside quiet waters.

3 He renews my life; he leads me along the right paths for his name’s sake.

4 Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for you are with me; your rod and your staff—they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

6 Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord as long as I live.

The Ten Commandments (ENGLISH: Christian Standard Bible 2017)

ENGLISH: Christian Standard Bible 2017

Exodus 20:3-17

3 Do not have other gods besides me.

4 Do not make an idol for yourself, whether in the shape of anything in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth.

5 Do not bow in worship to them, and do not serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the fathers’ iniquity, to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me,

6 but showing faithful love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commands.

7 Do not misuse the name of the Lord your God, because the Lord will not leave anyone unpunished who misuses his name.

8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy:

9 You are to labor six days and do all your work,

10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. You must not do any work—you, your son or daughter, your male or female servant, your livestock, or the resident alien who is within your city gates.

11 For the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and everything in them in six days; then he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and declared it holy.

12 Honor your father and your mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

13 Do not murder.

14 Do not commit adultery.

15 Do not steal.

16 Do not give false testimony against your neighbor.

17 Do not covet your neighbor’s house. Do not covet your neighbor’s wife, his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

The Lord’s Prayer (ENGLISH: Christian Standard Bible 2017)

ENGLISH: Christian Standard Bible 2017

11 on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

13 And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

Galatians 5:22-23

22 But these are the things which the Spirit wants you to show: love, joy, peace, patience, being kind, being good, being true, being gentle, and keeping the body under control. There is no law that says, ‘These things are wrong.’

23 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have stopped doing the wrong things they want to do. They have stopped them just as if they were killed on a cross. And they have even stopped wanting to do them.

The Armor of God (ENGLISH: Worldwide English Bible NT)

ENGLISH: Worldwide English Bible NT

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Use everything that God has given you so that you can fight against the tricks of the devil.

11 We are not fighting against people of flesh and blood. But we are fighting against rulers and powers whom we cannot see. We are fighting against those who control the darkness of this world, and against bad spirits who have power in the air.

12 So use everything that God has given you, that you can fight when the bad time comes. You will need to do everything you can do to stand!

13 So then, stand and hold on tight to the truth like you put on a belt. Do what is right. Wear it as a cover for your body.

14 You have the good news of peace. Wear that like shoes on your feet.

15 You believe in God. Take that and cover all of yourself with it. With that you can stop all the poison arrows of the devil.

16 You have been saved. Wear your salvation like you wear something on your head to protect yourself. And take with you the big knife or sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

17 Always talk to God in the Spirit. Talk to him about everything and ask him for what you need. Put your mind on what you are saying, asking God to help all his people.

18 And also, ask God to help me to talk without fear and tell people God’s plan about the good news.
