<< Mark 14:8 >>



  • 2 Corinthians 8 12
    For if the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what a person has, not according to what he does not have.
  • 1 Chronicles 28 2-1 Chronicles 28 3
    Then King David rose to his feet and said,“ Listen to me, my brothers and my people. It was in my heart to build a house as a resting place for the ark of the LORD’s covenant and as a footstool for our God. I had made preparations to build,but God said to me,‘ You are not to build a house for my name because you are a man of war and have shed blood.’
  • Luke 23:53-24:3
    Taking it down, he wrapped it in fine linen and placed it in a tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever been placed.It was the preparation day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.The women who had come with him from Galilee followed along and observed the tomb and how his body was placed.Then they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. And they rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment.On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came to the tomb, bringing the spices they had prepared.They found the stone rolled away from the tomb.They went in but did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
  • 2 Chronicles 34 19-2 Chronicles 34 33
    When the king heard the words of the law, he tore his clothes.Then he commanded Hilkiah, Ahikam son of Shaphan, Abdon son of Micah, the court secretary Shaphan, and the king’s servant Asaiah,“ Go and inquire of the LORD for me and for those remaining in Israel and Judah, concerning the words of the book that was found. For great is the LORD’s wrath that is poured out on us because our ancestors have not kept the word of the LORD in order to do everything written in this book.”So Hilkiah and those the king had designated went to the prophetess Huldah, the wife of Shallum son of Tokhath, son of Hasrah, keeper of the wardrobe. She lived in Jerusalem in the Second District. They spoke with her about this.She said to them,“ This is what the LORD God of Israel says: Say to the man who sent you to me,‘ This is what the LORD says: I am about to bring disaster on this place and on its inhabitants, fulfilling all the curses written in the book that they read in the presence of the king of Judah,because they have abandoned me and burned incense to other gods so as to anger me with all the works of their hands. My wrath will be poured out on this place, and it will not be quenched.’Say this to the king of Judah who sent you to inquire of the LORD:‘ This is what the LORD God of Israel says: As for the words that you heard,because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before God when you heard his words against this place and against its inhabitants, and because you humbled yourself before me, and you tore your clothes and wept before me, I myself have heard’— this is the LORD’s declaration.‘ I will indeed gather you to your ancestors, and you will be gathered to your grave in peace. Your eyes will not see all the disaster that I am bringing on this place and on its inhabitants.’” Then they reported to the king.So the king sent messengers and gathered all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem.The king went up to the LORD’s temple with all the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, as well as the priests and the Levites— all the people from the oldest to the youngest. He read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant that had been found in the LORD’s temple.Then the king stood at his post and made a covenant in the LORD’s presence to follow the LORD and to keep his commands, his decrees, and his statutes with all his heart and with all his soul in order to carry out the words of the covenant written in this book.He had all those present in Jerusalem and Benjamin agree to it. So all the inhabitants of Jerusalem carried out the covenant of God, the God of their ancestors.So Josiah removed everything that was detestable from all the lands belonging to the Israelites, and he required all who were present in Israel to serve the LORD their God. Throughout his reign they did not turn aside from following the LORD, the God of their ancestors.
  • 1 Chronicles 29 1-1 Chronicles 29 17
    Then King David said to all the assembly,“ My son Solomon— God has chosen him alone— is young and inexperienced. The task is great because the building will not be built for a human but for the LORD God.So to the best of my ability I’ve made provision for the house of my God: gold for the gold articles, silver for the silver, bronze for the bronze, iron for the iron, and wood for the wood, as well as onyx, stones for mounting, antimony, stones of various colors, all kinds of precious stones, and a great quantity of marble.Moreover, because of my delight in the house of my God, I now give my personal treasures of gold and silver for the house of my God over and above all that I’ve provided for the holy house:100 tons of gold( gold of Ophir) and 250 tons of refined silver for overlaying the walls of the buildings,the gold for the gold work and the silver for the silver, for all the work to be done by the craftsmen. Now who will volunteer to consecrate himself to the LORD today?”Then the leaders of the households, the leaders of the tribes of Israel, the commanders of thousands and of hundreds, and the officials in charge of the king’s work gave willingly.For the service of God’s house they gave 185 tons of gold and 10,000 gold coins, 375 tons of silver, 675 tons of bronze, and 4,000 tons of iron.Whoever had precious stones gave them to the treasury of the LORD’s house under the care of Jehiel the Gershonite.Then the people rejoiced because of their leaders’ willingness to give, for they had given to the LORD wholeheartedly. King David also rejoiced greatly.Then David blessed the LORD in the sight of all the assembly. David said, May you be blessed, LORD God of our father Israel, from eternity to eternity.Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the splendor and the majesty, for everything in the heavens and on earth belongs to you. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom, and you are exalted as head over all.Riches and honor come from you, and you are the ruler of everything. Power and might are in your hand, and it is in your hand to make great and to give strength to all.Now therefore, our God, we give you thanks and praise your glorious name.But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? For everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your own hand.For we are aliens and temporary residents in your presence as were all our ancestors. Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope.LORD our God, all this wealth that we’ve provided for building you a house for your holy name comes from your hand; everything belongs to you.I know, my God, that you test the heart and that you are pleased with what is right. I have willingly given all these things with an upright heart, and now I have seen your people who are present here giving joyfully and willingly to you.
  • 2 Corinthians 8 1-2 Corinthians 8 3
    We want you to know, brothers and sisters, about the grace of God that was given to the churches of Macedonia:During a severe trial brought about by affliction, their abundant joy and their extreme poverty overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part.I can testify that, according to their ability and even beyond their ability, of their own accord,
  • John 12:7
    Jesus answered,“ Leave her alone; she has kept it for the day of my burial.
  • 2 Chronicles 31 20-2 Chronicles 31 21
    Hezekiah did this throughout all Judah. He did what was good and upright and true before the LORD his God.He was diligent in every deed that he began in the service of God’s temple, in the instruction and the commands, in order to seek his God, and he prospered.
  • John 19:32-42
    So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man and of the other one who had been crucified with him.When they came to Jesus, they did not break his legs since they saw that he was already dead.But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once blood and water came out.He who saw this has testified so that you also may believe. His testimony is true, and he knows he is telling the truth.For these things happened so that the Scripture would be fulfilled: Not one of his bones will be broken.Also, another Scripture says: They will look at the one they pierced.After this, Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus— but secretly because of his fear of the Jews— asked Pilate that he might remove Jesus’s body. Pilate gave him permission; so he came and took his body away.Nicodemus( who had previously come to him at night) also came, bringing a mixture of about seventy-five pounds of myrrh and aloes.They took Jesus’s body and wrapped it in linen cloths with the fragrant spices, according to the burial custom of the Jews.There was a garden in the place where he was crucified. A new tomb was in the garden; no one had yet been placed in it.They placed Jesus there because of the Jewish day of preparation and since the tomb was nearby.
  • Mark 15:42-16:1
    When it was already evening, because it was the day of preparation( that is, the day before the Sabbath),Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent member of the Sanhedrin who was himself looking forward to the kingdom of God, came and boldly went to Pilate and asked for Jesus’s body.Pilate was surprised that he was already dead. Summoning the centurion, he asked him whether he had already died.When he found out from the centurion, he gave the corpse to Joseph.After he bought some linen cloth, Joseph took him down and wrapped him in the linen. Then he laid him in a tomb cut out of the rock and rolled a stone against the entrance to the tomb.Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses were watching where he was laid.When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they could go and anoint him.
  • Psalms 110:3
    Your people will volunteer on your day of battle. In holy splendor, from the womb of the dawn, the dew of your youth belongs to you.
