The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. – We beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
My speech and my preaching was … in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. … But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
Thine eyes shall see the King in his beauty. – We shall see him as he is. – In my flesh I shall see God. – I shall be satisfied.
Let us now fall now into the hand of the Lord; for his mercies are great. – I am with thee, saith the Lord, to save thee: … I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished. – He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. … For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. – I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. – Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not.
Thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
They that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same. – They have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind. – He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption.
To him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward. – He that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. – He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
We … do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. – That ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
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! – My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. – Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
Ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect.
These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. – Our conversation [Greek: citizenship] is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. – The Father, … hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.
As strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.
Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. – Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom.
Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee.
My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined. Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food. – I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. – If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
They brought great stones, costly stones, and hewed stones, to lay the foundation of the house. – The house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.
Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house. – Built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: in whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. – Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God.
Ye are God’s building. – Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. – Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised). – God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. – Truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. – Rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
That ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. – And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him.
For Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest.
The priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.
We see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. – When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee.
Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand. – In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. – Who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; and forgettest the Lord thy maker?
I am with thee to deliver thee. – 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.
I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. – Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.
