He chose David his servant
took him from the sheepfold
From tending sheep God brought him
to shepherd Jacob, his people
Israel, His heritage
He shepherded them with a pure heart
with skilled hands he guided them.
. . . . . . Psalm 78, verses 70-72
May God be gracious to us
may God's face shine upon us
So shall your rule be known upon the earth, your saving power among the nations
May the peoples praise you, God, may all the peoples praise you!
May the nations be glad and shout for joy; for you govern your people justly
you guide the nations upon the earth, may the peoples praise you!
The earth has yielded its harvest, God our God blesses us.
May God bless us still
that the ends of the earth may revere our God.
. . . . . . . Psalm 67
But if the wicked man turns away from all the sins he committed,
if he keeps all my statutes and does what is right and just,
he shall surely live, he shall not die.
None of the crimes he committed shall be remembered against him;
he shall live becasue of the virtue he has practiced.
Do I indeed take any pleasure from the death of the wicked? says the Lord God.
Do I not rather rejoice when he turns from his evil way that he may live?
. . . . . . . . . . . Ezekiel 18:21-23
When Jesus saw her weeping
and the Jews who had come with her weeping
He became perturbed
and said "Where have you laid him?"
They said, "Sir, come and see."
And Jesus wept.
. . . . . . . John 11: 33-36
So during supper,
fully aware that the Father had put everything into his power
and that he had come from God and was returning to God,
he rose from the supper and took off his outer garments.
He took a towel and tied it around his waist.
Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples feet.
and dry them with the towel around his waist.
He came to Simon Peter
who said to him, "Are you going to wash my feet?"
Jesus answered and said to him, "What I am doing now you do not understand,
but you will understand later."
Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet."
Jesus answered him, unless I wash you, you will have no inheritance with me."
Simon Peter said to him,
"Master, then not only my feet, but my head and hands as well."
. . . . . . . . John 13: 3-9
...For we brought nothing into this world, just as we shall not be able to take anything out of it.
. . . . . . . . . 1 Timothy, verse 7.
