Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps them and teaches others, shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” (Mark 7:7-8)

Matthew 5:44-48 Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; For if you love only those who love you, what reward will you get? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? Therefore be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.”

Matthew 6:20-21Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Matthew 7:22-23Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and performed miracles in Your name?’ And then I will tell them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Mark 7:7-8)

So when you see standing in the holy place the abomination that causes desolation, spoken by the prophet Daniel, then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountainsPray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time. If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect, those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect … For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man … Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect … Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: as soon as its twigs become tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door … But about that day or hour, no one makes known, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (will make known) … Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.

But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ ‘No,’ they replied, ‘ for there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom came. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding. And the door was shut. Later the other virgins also came saying, “Lord, Lord,” they said, ‘open the door for us!’ But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ Watch, therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”

Matthew 25:21-40 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, … He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was ill and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Compare with Matthew 7:22-23)

Matthew 28:18-20 “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

Philippians 3:8-9 “I count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ.”

Philippians 3:10 “I want to know Christ, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death.” (NIV) NOTE:  The word “know” (Gr. “ginosko”) means to know someone personally, intimately, and experientially (see John 17:3  and Matthew 1:25).

HEBREWS

Hebrews 2:9 “Christ tasted death for everyone.”

Hebrews 2:14-15 “Since the children have flesh and blood, He (Christ) too shared in their humanity so that by His death he might destroy him who holds the power of death – that is, the devil – and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.”

Hebrews 2:16-17 “For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. For this reason, he had to be made like them, fully human in every way. For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.”

Hebrews 2:18 “For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.”

Hebrews 4:9-10 “There remains therefore a rest (Gr. “sabbatismos” = keeping of the Sabbath) for the people of God. For he who has entered God’s rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.” [Here Paul tells the legalistic Jews and modern legalists that they must accept the gift of eternal rest (symbolized by Sabbath rest) by ceasing from trying to obtain that eternal rest by their own works. Today, if we keep the Sabbath in order to gain salvation, we lie and commit a horrible sin because by keeping the Sabbath we should manifest that we have already accepted the gift of eternal rest by faith alone and that we ceased from trying to gain that rest (salvation) by good works.]

Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart”.

Hebr 5:7-9 “During the days of his life on earth, Jesus offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.”

Hebrews 5:12-14 “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the elementary truths of God; Anyone who lives on milk, being still a baby, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.”

Hebrews 6:4-6 “For it is impossible for those who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.”

Hebrews 6:7-8 “For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.”‌

Hebrews 7:9-10 “Even Levi, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, so to speak, for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him.”

Hebrews 7:25 “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”

Hebrews 8:1-2 “The main point of what we are saying is this: We have a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, and who serves in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the Lord, not by a mere human being.”

Hebrews 8:10 “This is the covenant that I will make with my people after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”

Hebrews 10:38-39 “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”

Hebrews 11:24-26 “By faith Moses refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.”

Hebrews 11:34 (talking about Samson and other heroes of faith): “Out of weakness were made strong.” (Samson’s weakness was blindness, lack of power, and slavery)

JAMES

James 1:5-8 “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not expect that he will receive anything from the Lord; For he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.”

James 1:13-15 “Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted by God; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.”

James 2:10 “For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.”

1 John 1:8-10 “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make God a liar and his word is not in us.”

1 John 2:1 “My little children, I write to you, so that you may not sin. But, if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous. He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.”

1 John 2:16 “For everything in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (Gr. “bios”) — comes not from the Father but from the world.”

1 John 3:1-2 “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.“

1 John 4:3 “Every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist.”

1 John 4:17 Love has been perfected among us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.”

1 John 5:4 “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”

1 John 5:16-18 (NAS) “If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this. All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death. We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.”

REVELATION

Revelation 2:10 “Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, so that you will be tested. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. Those who are victorious will not be harmed by the second death.”

Revelation 3:15-19 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and you do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garment, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.”

NOTE: If “hot” is works of faith, and “cold” is works of the flesh, then “lukewarm” would be what kind of works? Works of law (legalism) (source). Jesus has to “vomit” all legalists because of Gal 3:10 and Gal 2:16.

“I asked the meaning of the shaking I had seen, and was shown that it would be caused by the … counsel … to the Laodiceans… Some will … rise up against it, and this will cause a shaking among God’s people.” Testimonies For The Church 1:181 (1857)

Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me”

Revelation 5:4-6 “And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a book written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. Then I saw a mighty angel saying with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the scroll and to open its seals? And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the book, or to look at it. So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the book. But one of the elders said to me, ‘Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book hand to loose its seven seals’. And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain.”

Revelation 7:13-17 “Then one of the elders said to me, These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have they come from? I said to him, My Lord, you know. And he said to me, These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. For this reason, they are before the throne of God… The Lamb will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.”

Revelation 11:19 “Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple.”

Revelation 13:15–17 “He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all … to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Revelation 19:10 “For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”.

Revelation 14:1-4 “Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes.”

Revelation 14:6-10 “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth; to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people; saying with a loud voice, ‘Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.’ And another angel followed, saying, ‘Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.’ Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, ‘he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation’.”

Revelation 19:7-8 “The wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride (His true church) has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear. The fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people“. NOTE: The fine linen (the wedding garment) which stands for the righteous deeds of the saints (imparted righteousness) “was given her to wear” (v. 8), which means that this imparted righteousness (sanctification) was received by the church from Christ by faith.

Revelation 19:10 “For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”.

Revelation 20:6Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years”. NOTE: The second (everlasting) death has no power over the believers because Christ out of agape love experienced that death on their behalf (Gal 3:13).

Revelation 20:12 “And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.”

Revelation 21:1 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also, there was no more sea.”  

Revelation 21:4 “God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

Revelation 21:8 “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.

‌3 I. “You shall have no other gods before Me.

Exodus 31:13-17 “Above all, you shall keep my Sabbaths, for this is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I, the Lord, sanctify you. You shall keep the Sabbath, because it is holy for you. Everyone who profanes it shall be put to death. Whoever does any work on it, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death… It is a sign forever between me and the people of Israel that in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested.”

Numbers 14:34 “According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for each day you shall bear your guilt one year, namely forty years, and you shall know My rejection”.

DEUTERONOMY

Deuteronomy 5 (Sabbath Commandment repeated with different reason) “12 Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the Lord your God commanded you. 13 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 14 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your animals, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 15 And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm. Therefore, the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.”

Deuteronomy 20:3-4 “Hear, o Israel: Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not be afraid, and do not be terrified because of them; for the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.”

2 Chronicles 20:20Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established (upheld, strong); believe His prophets, and you shall prosper (will be successful).”

2 KINGS

2 Kings 22:14-20 (After King Josiah read the Book of the law found by Hilkiah the high priest in the house of the LORD, he sent Hilkiah and Shaphan (the scribe) to Huldah, the prophetess) “And Huldah said to them, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Tell the man who sent you that this is what the LORD says: I am about to bring calamity on this place and on its people, according to all the words of the book that the king of Judah has read, because they have forsaken Me and burned incense to other gods … But as for the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the LORD, tell him: ‘As for the words that you heard, because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before the LORD when you heard what I spoke against this place and against its people, that they would become a desolation and a curse, and because you have torn your clothes and wept before Me, I have heard you, declares the LORD. Therefore, I will indeed gather you to your fathers, and you will be buried in peace. Your eyes will not see all the calamity that I will bring on this place.’ So they brought her answer back to the king.”

ISAIAH

Isaiah 4:1 “In that day (before Christ’s return – John 16:22-23) seven women (Churches – Revelation 12:17) shall take hold of one man (Christ), saying, ‘We will eat our own bread (own interpretation of the Word of God – Matthew 4:4) and wear our own clothes (own righteousness, not Christ’s); Only let us be called by your name (Christians) to take away our reproach (accusation, blame, punishment)’.”

Isaiah 30:21 “Your ears will hear a word behind you, ‘This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left’.”

Isaiah 33:15 (regarding watching movies with violence, evil, and death) “Those who walk righteously stop their ears from hearing about plots of bloodshed and shut their eyes from looking at evil.”

Isaiah 40:6-8All people are like grass, and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field… The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of our God endures forever.”

Isaiah 40:27-31 “Why do you say, o Jacob, And speak, o Israel: My way is hidden from the Lord, and my just claim is passed over by my God? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak. He increases strength. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Isaiah 41:10 “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”

Isaiah 43:1-4 “But now, this is what the Lord says—he who created you, Jacob, who formed you, Israel: ‘Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior … Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you‘.”

Isaiah 45:7 (King James Version) “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.”

NOTE: Only KJV uses the word “evil”. Other translations use “calamity”. In Isiah 45:7 God seems to say, “I could have prevented it but allowed sin to appear in the perfect universe and develop so I accept the blame but only until the great day of judgement when every mouth will be shut”. On the great day of judgment, God will prove that there was no reason for sin to appear in the perfect universe, and that God couldn’t prevent it because He could do it only by depriving his creatures of the freedom of choice. On that day God, however, He will place the responsibility for introducing and developing sin on the head of Azazel (Lucifer).

Isaiah 52:7 “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation“.

Isaiah 53 “He was despised and rejected, a man of suffering, familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by Him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished.”

Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.”

Isaiah 55:2 “Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food.” (ESV)

NOTE: Our Creator who created and designed for us only fresh unrefined rich in nutrient plant foods is asking us here why we consume the white refined bread and other refined grains and foods that are deprived of nutrients and not able to satisfy the nutritional needs of our body and contribute to poor brain function, mental health problems, weak immunity and various chronic health issues. If we “listen diligently” to God’s Word and pray we get strength to eat only “what is good” and we “delight yourselves in rich (in nutrients) food” only.

Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.”

Isaiah 56:4-7 “For thus says the Lord: To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths, who choose the things that please me and hold fast my covenant, I will give in my house an everlasting name that shall not be cut off. And the foreigners who join themselves to the Lord, to love the name of the Lord, everyone who keeps the Sabbath and does not profane it, and holds fast my covenant— these I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”

Isaiah 58:13-14 “If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the Lord’s holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in the Lord, and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

Isaiah 63:16-17 “Yet You are our Father, though Abraham does not know us and Israel does not acknowledge us. You, O LORD, are our Father; our Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name.

And I will attach tendons to you, cover you with flesh and skin, and put breath in you so that you may live; And you will know that I am the LORD.’ So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a rattling loud noise, and behold, the bones came together, bone to bone. And I looked, and behold, tendons were on them, and flesh grew and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them. Then He said to me, ‘Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, Come from the four winds, breath, and breathe on these slain, so that they come to life.’ So I prophesied as He commanded, and the breath entered them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army. Then He said to me, ‘Son of man, these bones are the house of Israel. Behold, they say, Our bones are dried up and our hope has perished. We are completely cut off. Therefore, prophesy and say to them, This is what the Lord GOD says: Behold, I am going to open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD, when I opened your graves and make you to come up out of your graves, My people. And I will put My Spirit in you and you will come to life, and I will place you on your own land. Then you will know that I, the LORD, have spoken and done it,’ declares the LORD.”

Psalm 4:8 “In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, o Lord, make me dwell in safety.”

Psalm 22

(Prophetic reflection of the thoughts and sufferings of dying Saviour)

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from saving me,
so far from my cries of anguish?
My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,
by night, but I find no rest.

In you our ancestors put their trust;
they trusted and you delivered them.
To you they cried out and were saved…

But I am a worm and not a man,
scorned by everyone, despised by the people.
All who see me mock me;
they hurl insults, shaking their heads.
‘He trusts in the Lord,
let the Lord rescue him.
Let him deliver him,
since he delights in him.

You brought me out of the womb;
you made me trust in you, even at my mother’s breast.
From birth, I was cast on you;
from my mother’s womb, you have been my God.

Do not be far from me,
for trouble is near
and there is no one to help.

Many bulls surround me.
Roaring lions that tear their prey
open their mouths wide against me.
I am poured out like water,
and all my bones are out of joint.
My heart has turned to wax;
it has melted within me.
My mouth is dried up like a potsherd (sunbaked clay),
and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth;
you lay me in the dust of death.

Dogs surround me,
a pack of villains encircles me;
they pierce my hands and my feet.
All my bones are on display (I can count all My bones);
people look and stare at me.
They divide my clothes among them
And for My clothing they cast lots.

But you, Lord, do not be far from me.
You are my strength; come quickly to help me.
Deliver me from the sword,
my precious life from the power of the dogs (dog).
Rescue me from the mouth of the lions.

I will declare your name to my people;
in the assembly, I will praise you.
You who fear the Lord, praise him!
For he has not despised or scorned
the suffering of the afflicted one;
he has not hidden his face from him
but has listened to his cry for help…”

Psalm 22 by Isaac Watts

Now let our mournful songs record
The dying sorrows of our Lord,
When he complained in tears and blood,
As one forsaken of his God.

The Jews beheld him thus forlorn (oppressed),
And shake their heads, and laugh in scorn:
“He rescued others from the grave;
Now let him try himself to save.

“This is the man did once pretend
God was his Father and his Friend
If God the blessed loved him so,
Why does he fail to help him now?”

Heartless people! cruel priests!
How they stood round like savage beasts!
Like lions gaping to devour,
When God had left him in their power.

They wound his head, his hands, and feet,
Till streams of blood each other meet;
By lot his garments they divide,
And mock the anguish in which he died.

But God, his Father, heard his cry;
Raised from the dead, he reigns on high,
The nations learn his righteousness,
And humble sinners taste his grace.‌

Psalm 23 

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.

Psalm 40

I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He brought me up out of a horrible pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and established my steps.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.

Sacrifice and offering you did not desire;
burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require.
Then I said, ‘Here I am, I have come –
it is written about me in the scroll.
I desire to do your will, my God;
your law is within my heart.’

Troubles without number surround me;
my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.
They are more than the hairs of my head,
and my heart fails within me.

He will cover you with his wings; you will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.”

Psalm 103:2-5 “Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up that we may live in His presence.  So let’s press on to know the LORD. His appearance is as sure as the rising sun; and He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain. O Ephraim, what shall I do to you? What can I do with you, Judah? For your faithfulness is like a morning cloud, And like the early dew it goes away. Therefore, I cut you in pieces with my prophets, I killed you with the words of my mouth—then my judgments go forth like the sun. For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, And the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.”

Hosea 12:3-6 “In the womb, Jacob grasped his brother’s heel. As a man, he wrestled with God … and overcame as he wept and begged for God’s favour.
