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.

JOHN 7:46.  Psa. 45:2. ‑Isa. 50:4. ‑Song 5:16. Luke 4:22. ‑Matt. 7:29. Col. 3:16. ‑Eph. 6:17. ‑Heb. 4:12. -II Cor. 10:4,5.


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.
