Never man spake like this man.
Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever. – The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary. – His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend.
All bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. – He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom. – The sword of the Spirit … is the word of God. – The word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword. – The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

June 9 evening scripture and hymn
The triumphing of the wicked is short.
Thou shalt bruise his heel. – This is your hour, and the power of darkness. – As the children are partakers of flesh and blood he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil. – Having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour: whom resist stedfast in the faith. – Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming. – The God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. – The devil … was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone … and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
