Psalms 73:1-28

1 A Psalm of Asaph. Only—good to Israel is God, to the clean of heart. And I—as a little thing, My feet have been turned aside, 2 As nothing, have my steps slipped, For I have been envious of the boastful, 3 The peace of the wicked I see, That there are no bands at their death, 4 And their might is firm. 5 In the misery of mortals they are not, And with common men they are not plagued. 6 Therefore hath pride encircled them, Violence covereth them as a dress. 7 Their eye hath come out from fat. The imaginations of the heart transgressed; 8 They do corruptly, And they speak in the wickedness of oppression, From on high they speak. 9 They have set in the heavens their mouth, And their tongue walketh in the earth. 10 Therefore do His people return hither, And waters of fulness are wrung out to them. 11 And they have said, `How hath God known? And is there knowledge in the Most High?' 12 Lo, these are the wicked and easy ones of the age, They have increased strength. 13 Only—a vain thing! I have purified my heart, And I wash in innocency my hands, 14 And I am plagued all the day, And my reproof is every morning.
15 If I have said, `I recount thus,' Lo, a generation of Thy sons I have deceived. 16 And I think to know this, Perverseness it is in mine eyes, 17 Till I come in to the sanctuaries of God, I attend to their latter end. 18 Only, in slippery places Thou dost set them, Thou hast caused them to fall to desolations. 19 How have they become a desolation as in a moment, They have been ended—consumed from terrors. 20 As a dream from awakening, O Lord, In awaking, their image Thou despisest.
21 For my heart doth show itself violent, And my reins prick themselves, 22 And I am brutish, and do not know. A beast I have been with Thee. 23 And I am continually with Thee, Thou hast laid hold on my right hand. 24 With Thy counsel Thou dost lead me, And after honour dost receive me. 25 Whom have I in the heavens? And with Thee none I have desired in earth. 26 Consumed hath been my flesh and my heart, The rock of my heart and my portion is God to the age. 27 For, lo, those far from Thee do perish, Thou hast cut off every one, Who is going a whoring from Thee. 28 And I—nearness of God to me is good, I have placed in the Lord Jehovah my refuge, To recount all Thy works!

Matthew 10:29-31

29 `Are not two sparrows sold for an assar? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father; 30 and of you—even the hairs of the head are all numbered; 31 be not therefore afraid, than many sparrows ye are better.

Matthew 6:6

6 `But thou, when thou mayest pray, go into thy chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret, and thy Father who is seeing in secret, shall reward thee manifestly.

John 10:10

10 `The thief doth not come, except that he may steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 If with the tongues of men and of messengers I speak, and have not love, I have become brass sounding, or a cymbal tinkling; 2 and if I have prophecy, and know all the secrets, and all the knowledge, and if I have all the faith, so as to remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing; 3 and if I give away to feed others all my goods, and if I give up my body that I may be burned, and have not love, I am profited nothing.
4 The love is long-suffering, it is kind, the love doth not envy, the love doth not vaunt itself, is not puffed up, 5 doth not act unseemly, doth not seek its own things, is not provoked, doth not impute evil, 6 rejoiceth not over the unrighteousness, and rejoiceth with the truth; 7 all things it beareth, all it believeth, all it hopeth, all it endureth.
8 The love doth never fail; and whether there be prophecies, they shall become useless; whether tongues, they shall cease; whether knowledge, it shall become useless; 9 for in part we know, and in part we prophecy; 10 and when that which is perfect may come, then that which is in part shall become useless. 11 When I was a babe, as a babe I was speaking, as a babe I was thinking, as a babe I was reasoning, and when I have become a man, I have made useless the things of the babe; 12 for we see now through a mirror obscurely, and then face to face; now I know in part, and then I shall fully know, as also I was known; 13 and now there doth remain faith, hope, love—these three; and the greatest of these is love.

1 John 5:13-14

13 These things I did write to you who are believing in the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that life ye have age-during, and that ye may believe in the name of the Son of God.
14 And this is the boldness that we have toward Him, that if anything we may ask according to his will, He doth hear us,

Hebrews 4:14-16

14 Having, then, a great chief priest passed through the heavens—Jesus the Son of God—may we hold fast the profession, 15 for we have not a chief priest unable to sympathise with our infirmities, but one tempted in all things in like manner—apart from sin; 16 we may come near, then, with freedom, to the throne of the grace, that we may receive kindness, and find grace—for seasonable help.

Psalms 23:1-6

1 A Psalm of David. Jehovah is my shepherd, I do not lack, 2 In pastures of tender grass He causeth me to lie down, By quiet waters He doth lead me. 3 My soul He refresheth, He leadeth me in paths of righteousness, For His name's sake, 4 Also—when I walk in a valley of death-shade, I fear no evil, for Thou art with me, Thy rod and Thy staff—they comfort me. 5 Thou arrangest before me a table, Over-against my adversaries, Thou hast anointed with oil my head, My cup is full! 6 Only—goodness and kindness pursue me, All the days of my life, And my dwelling is in the house of Jehovah, For a length of days!

Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard? The God of the age—Jehovah, Preparer of the ends of the earth, Is not wearied nor fatigued, There is no searching of His understanding. 29 He is giving power to the weary, And to those not strong He increaseth might. 30 Even youths are wearied and fatigued, And young men utterly stumble, 31 But those expecting Jehovah pass to power, They raise up the pinion as eagles, They run and are not fatigued, They go on and do not faint!

Psalms 121:1-8

1 A Song of the Ascents. I lift up mine eyes unto the hills, Whence doth my help come? 2 My help is from Jehovah, maker of heaven and earth, 3 He suffereth not thy foot to be moved, Thy preserver slumbereth not. 4 Lo, He slumbereth not, nor sleepeth, He who is preserving Israel. 5 Jehovah is thy preserver, Jehovah is thy shade on thy right hand, 6 By day the sun doth not smite thee, Nor the moon by night. 7 Jehovah preserveth thee from all evil, He doth preserve thy soul. 8 Jehovah preserveth thy going out and thy coming in, From henceforth even unto the age!

Colossians 3:23-25

23 and all, whatever ye may do—out of soul work—as to the Lord, and not to men, 24 having known that from the Lord ye shall receive the recompense of the inheritance—for the Lord Christ ye serve; 25 and he who is doing unrighteously shall receive what he did unrighteously, and there is no acceptance of persons.

Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I have known the thoughts that I am thinking towards you—an affirmation of Jehovah; thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give to you posterity and hope.

Romans 8:28

28 And we have known that to those loving God all things do work together for good, to those who are called according to purpose;

Philippians 4:6-7

6 for nothing be anxious, but in everything by prayer, and by supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God; 7 and the peace of God, that is surpassing all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
