How countless are Your works, Lord! In wisdom You have made them all; the earth is full of Your creatures.
Psalm 104:24 (HCSB)
The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
Psalm 147:11 (KJV)
Listen to counsel and receive instruction so that you may be wise later in life. Many plans are in a man’s heart, but the Lord’s decree will prevail. What is desirable in a man is his fidelity; better to be a poor man than a liar.
Proverbs 19:20-22 (HCSB)
The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil. A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again. Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.
Proverbs 19:23-25 (KJV)
The one who assaults his father and evicts his mother is a disgraceful and shameful son. If you stop listening to correction, my son, you will stray from the words of knowledge. A worthless witness mocks justice, and a wicked mouth swallows iniquity. Judgments are prepared for mockers, and beatings for the backs of fools.
Proverbs 19:26-29 (HCSB)
Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.
Galatians 2:10 (KJV)
For they disciplined us for a short time based on what seemed good to them, but He does it for our benefit, so that we can share His holiness. No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it yields the fruit of peace and righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Hebrews 12:10-11 (HCSB)
