Psalms 46:10

10 Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.

Jeremiah 31:25

25 For I have satiated the weary soul, and every sorrowful soul I have replenished.

Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Have thou not known? Have thou not heard? The everlasting God, LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, nor is weary. There is no searching of his understanding. 29 He gives power to the faint. And to him who has no might he increases strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall. 31 But those who wait for LORD shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run, and not be weary. They shall walk, and not faint.

Hebrews 4:1-11

1 Let us be afraid therefore, lest, a promise being left behind to enter into his rest, any of you should seem to have come short. 2 For we also are having good-news preached, just as also those men, but the word of hearing did not benefit those men, not having been mixed together with faith in those who heard. 3 For those who believe enter into that rest, just as he said, So I swore in my wrath, They will not enter into my rest, although the works occurred from the foundation of the world. 4 For he spoke somewhere about the seventh this way, And God rested during the seventh day from all his works, 5 and in this again, They will not enter into my rest. 6 Since therefore it remains for some to enter into it, and those who formerly had good-news did not enter because of disobedience, 7 again he appoints a certain day, Today, saying in David after so long a time (as it is said), Today if ye will hear his voice, do not harden your hearts. 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, he would not have spoken about another day after these things. 9 There remains therefore a Sabbath for the people of God. 10 For a man who has entered into his rest, he has also rested from his works, as God did from his own. 11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter into that rest, so that not any man may fall by the same example of disobedience.
