Ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. – Of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. – My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. – 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.
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? – Not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: but God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.
We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
Whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord.
Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, … but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord. – The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
What things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ. – In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. – Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
Christ Jesus, … is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.
As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.
Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that he have mercy upon us. – Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee. – Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. – Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious. – He is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom. – Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God. – Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. – Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord. – Unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. – As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. – He giveth more grace.
Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever.
If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. – If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. … This spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive.
Prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. – If ye … being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? – Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find.
Because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. – Ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures. – It is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. – I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. – We have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. – How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand. – O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? … For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: … [he] saith, … Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
The ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat. – I believed, and therefore have I spoken. – I know whom I have believed. – I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
The goodness of God. – He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: if so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
Let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. – He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. – Thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.
I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick. – Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; … lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. – Behold, your God … will come and save you.
No man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation. – In me ye … have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness. – The night is far spent, the day is at hand. – He shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.
He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces. – There shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. – We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. … Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
The Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. – The Lord will show who are his, and who is holy. – Thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. – There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear.
Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee. – When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. – He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
The foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, the Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
