How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!
2 Samuel 1:27
Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.
He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
2 Peter 3:14
