Psalms 119:54

54 Your statutes are my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.

Hebrews 13:5-6

5 You should be free from the love of money. Be content with what you have, for he has said: »I will not leave you. I will not forsake you.« 6 So that with good confidence (courage) we say: »Jehovah is my helper; I will not fear: What shall man do to me?« (Psalm 56:11)

Psalms 23:1-6

1 ([Psalm of David]) Jehovah is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores me and he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me. Your rod and your staff they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of Jehovah forever.

Psalms 121:1-8

1 I will lift up my eyes to the mountains from where my help comes. 2 My help comes from Jehovah, who made heaven and earth. 3 He will not allow your foot to slip. He who keeps you will not slumber. 4 Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5 Jehovah is your keeper. Jehovah is your shade on your right hand. 6 The sun will not strike you by day. The moon will not strike you by night. 7 Jehovah will protect you from all evil. He will protect (preserve) you. 8 May Jehovah guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever.

29 Jesus said: »Truly I tell you, a man that has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or mother, or father, or children, or lands, for my sake, and for the sake of the good news, 30 will receive a hundred times as much now in this time, and in the age to come everlasting life.

Isaiah 66:13

13 »As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you. You will be comforted in Jerusalem.«

Lamentations 3:22-24

22 We have not come to destruction because of Jehovah’s loving kindness. His mercies are without end. 23 They are new every morning. Your faithfulness is abundant. 24 I said to myself, »Jehovah is my heritage. For this reason I will hope in him.«

Ecclesiastes 3:1-22

1 For everything there is a season. There is a time for every purpose under the sun. 2 There is a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pull up what is planted; 3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 a time to get and a time to lose; a time to keep and a time to throw away. 7 There is a time to tear and a time to sew, a time to keep silence and a time to speak. 8 There is also a time to love and a time to hate, a time of war and a time of peace. 9 What profit is there to the worker in his work? 10 I have seen the task that God has given with which the sons of men are occupied. 11 He made everything appropriate (beautiful) (good) in its time. God placed eternity in the heart of man. For man is unable to see the works of God from the first to the last. 12 I am certain that there is nothing better for a man than to rejoice and to do good works in life. 13 Every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor. It is the gift of God. 14 I know that whatever God does it will be forever. Nothing can be added to it, nor any thing taken from it. God does it in order that men should reverence (respect) him. 15 That which is has already been and that which is to be has already been. God seeks what has passed by. 16 I saw under the sun the place of judgment and wickedness was there. And wickedness was in the place of righteousness. 17 I said in my heart, »God should judge the righteous and the wicked for there is a time for every purpose and for every work.« 18 I said in my heart concerning the condition of the sons of men, »God tested them that they might see that they are like animals.« 19 What happens to the sons of men also happens to animals. As the one dies so the other dies. Yes, they all have one breath so that a man has no advantage over animals. For all is vanity. 20 All go to one place. All came from the dust and all return to dust. 21 Who knows the breath of man that goes upward, and the breath of the animal that goes downward to the earth? 22 I see there is nothing better than that a man should rejoice in his own works. That is his portion. Who will bring him to see what will happen after him?

Isaiah 26:3-4

3 You will keep the steadfast mind in perfect peace, because he trusts (hopes) in you. 4 »Trust in Jehovah forever, for Jah, Jehovah, is the Rock eternal.

2 Corinthians 1:3-7

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our trouble, that we may be able to comfort those who also have trouble, through the comfort with which we are comforted from God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, even so our comfort also abounds through Christ. 6 If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation. If we are comforted, it is for your comfort. It works through patience and longsuffering and is the same sufferings that we also suffer. 7 Our hope for you is steadfast; knowing that, as you are partakers of the sufferings, so you also partake of the comfort.

Philippians 4:6-7

6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
