1 I will thank Yahweh with all my heart; I will declare all Your wonderful works.
2 I will rejoice and boast about You; I will sing about Your name, Most High.
3 When my enemies retreat, they stumble and perish before You.
4 For You have upheld my just cause; You are seated on Your throne as a righteous judge.
5 You have rebuked the nations: You have destroyed the wicked; You have erased their name forever and ever.
6 The enemy has come to eternal ruin; You have uprooted the cities, and the very memory of them has perished.
7 But the Lord sits enthroned forever; He has established His throne for judgment.
8 He judges the world with righteousness; He executes judgment on the nations with fairness.
9 The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
10 Those who know Your name trust in You because You have not abandoned those who seek
11 Sing to the Lord, who dwells in Zion; proclaim His deeds among the nations.
12 For the One who seeks an accounting for bloodshed remembers them; He does not forget the cry of the afflicted.
13 Be gracious to me, Lord; consider my affliction at the hands of those who hate me. Lift me up from the gates of death,
14 so that I may declare all Your praises. I will rejoice in Your salvation within the gates of Daughter Zion.
15 The nations have fallen into the pit they made; their foot is caught in the net they have concealed.
16 The Lord has revealed Himself; He has executed justice, striking down the wicked by the
work of their hands. Higgaion. Selah
17 The wicked will return to Sheol — all the nations that forget God.
18 For the oppressed will not always be forgotten; the hope of the afflicted will not perish forever.
19 Rise up, Lord! Do not let man prevail; let the nations be judged in Your presence.
20 Put terror in them, Lord; let the nations know they are only men. Selah
Psalm 9:1-20 (HCSB)
22 Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
Psalm 55:22 (HCSB)
1 Doesn’t Wisdom call out? Doesn’t Understanding make her voice heard?
2 At the heights overlooking the road, at the crossroads, she takes her stand.
3 Beside the gates at the entry to the city, at the main entrance, she cries out:
4 “People, I call out to you; my cry is to mankind.
5 Learn to be shrewd, you who are inexperienced; develop common sense, you who are foolish.
6 Listen, for I speak of noble things, and what my lips say is right.
7 For my mouth tells the truth, and wickedness is detestable to my lips.
8 All the words of my mouth are righteous; none of them are deceptive or perverse.
9 All of them are clear to the perceptive, and right to those who discover knowledge.
10 Accept my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than pure gold.
11 For wisdom is better than jewels, and nothing desirable can compare with it.
12 I, Wisdom, share a home with shrewdness and have knowledge and discretion.
Proverbs 8:1-12 (HCSB)
13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
18 Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.
19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
20 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:
21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.
and the eternity of wisdom
22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
Proverbs 8:13-24 (KJV)
25 I was delivered before the mountains and hills were established,
26 before He made the land, the fields, or the first soil on earth.
27 I was there when He established the heavens, when He laid out the horizon on the surface of the ocean,
28 when He placed the skies above, when the fountains of the ocean gushed out,
29 when He set a limit for the sea so that the waters would not violate His command, when He laid out the foundations of the earth.
30 I was a skilled craftsman beside Him. I was His delight every day, always rejoicing before Him.
31 I was rejoicing in His inhabited world, delighting in the human race.
32 And now, my sons, listen to me; those who keep my ways are happy.
33 Listen to instruction and be wise; don’t ignore it.
34 Anyone who listens to me is happy, watching at my doors every day, waiting by the posts of my doorway.
35 For the one who finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord,
36 but the one who misses me harms himself; all who hate me love death.”
Proverbs 8:25-36 (HCSB)
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
John 14:1-4 (KJV)
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Romans 8:11 (KJV)
