I have asked one thing from the Lord; it is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the Lord and seeking him in his temple.
You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone.
Your faithfulness is for all generations; you established the earth, and it stands firm.
Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill what he has spoken to her!
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree; so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
But you, dear friends, as you build yourselves up in your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting expectantly for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ for eternal life.
Therefore, with your minds ready for action, be sober-minded and set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are protected.
Now you too, brothers and sisters, like Isaac, are children of promise.
The one who lives under the protection of the Most High dwells in the shadow of the Almighty.
