Old Testament: Prov. 8:1-4,22-31
1Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice?
2On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
3beside the gates leading into the city, at the entrances, she cries aloud:
4"To you, O men, I call out; I raise my voice to all mankind.
22"The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works,, before his deeds of old;
23I was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began.
24When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water;
25before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth,
26before he made the earth or its fields or any of the dust of the world.
27I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
28when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
29when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
30Then I was the craftsman at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence,
31rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.
Proverbs 8:1-4,22-31 (NIV)
1O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.
2From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
3When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
4what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
5You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
6You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet:
7all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field,
8the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.
9O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Psalms 8 (NIV)
1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.
3Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
4perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
Romans 5:1-5 (NIV)
12"I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.
13But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
14He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.
15All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.
John 16:12-15 (NIV)
