Reckless words pierce like sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.
Don’t pay back evil with evil. Be careful to do what everyone thinks is right. If possible, live in peace with everyone. Do that as much as you can.
You also must give witness. This is because you have been with Me from the beginning. I have told you all of this so that you will not go down the wrong path.
Come, let us sing with joy to the Lord. Let us give a loud shout to the Rock Who saves us. Let us come to Him and give Him thanks. Let us praise Him with music and song.
Holy brothers and sisters, God chose you to be His people. So keep thinking about Jesus. He is our apostle. He is our high priest. We believe in Him.
Open wide, you gates. Open wide, you age-old doors. Then the King of glory will come in. Who is He, this King of glory? The LORD who rules over all. He is the King of glory.
He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by His grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep.
