The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. – The Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. – The living God, … giveth us richly all things to enjoy. – God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. – But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.

Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. – A woman … cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; … But he answered her not a word.
The trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; what is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visited him? – The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. – This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night. – My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: when I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them. – Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. – Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven. … For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
They do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. – We look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. – To him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward. – There is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. – A crown of glory that fadeth not away.
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. – Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? – Heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
The Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me. – God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. – There is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. – He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
If the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: and if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. … But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
It came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over Jordan, that the Lord spake unto Joshua, saying, … Take you hence out of the midst of Jordan, out of the place where the priests’ feet stood firm, twelve stones, … and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever. – This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. – Witnesses chosen before of God, … who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.

All these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. … The manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. – As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. – It is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. – Unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Who is sufficient for these things? – I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: … and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
The kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea.

So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
Behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of. – Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world. … At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me. – When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up. – Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. – I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore. – I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. – My peace I give unto you.
