Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. – O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. – Be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. – You, … hath he quickened, … having forgiven you all trespasses; blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross. – Even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; the God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my savior. – The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

He humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, … that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live. – Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
It pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. – Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? – We thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: and that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

Be ye holy; for I am holy. – [Jesus] said, … Whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother. – Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. – The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
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. – The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. – Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off. – Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. – God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God.

In the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. – A stone … cut out without hands. – Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. – The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: neither shall they say, Lo here! or lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
Be ye … ready: for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh.

Wherefore I abhor myself.
The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. – That we might be partakers of his holiness. – Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, … let us draw near with a true heart.
