The Contrite and the Humble

And shall say, "Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumblingblock out of the way of My people." For 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 …

The Righteous, The Wise

He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD. All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits. Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. The LORD hath made all things for Himself: …

Expectation and Shouting

When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth. The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.

Enduring Like Mount Zion

They that trust in the LORD shall be as Mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about His people from henceforth even for ever.  For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest …

Full of the knowledge of the LORD

Until He performs the intents of His heart

Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before Me, and I will punish all that oppress them. And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto Me: for who …
