November 5

Take thou also unto thee principal spices, and thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment.

Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make any other like it, after the composition of it: it is holy, and it shall be holy unto you. - One Spirit. - Diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

Thy God hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. - God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power. - God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

Of his fulness have all we received. - As the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. - He which ... hath anointed us, is God; who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, good-ness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

The fashion of this world passeth away.

All the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.

Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: but the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away. For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning beat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways. - For what is your life? It is even a vapour of that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. - The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. - When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
