Old Testament: Jer. 29:1,4-7
1This is the text of the letter that the prophet Jeremiah sent from Jerusalem to the surviving elders among the exiles and to the priests, the prophets and all the other people Nebuchadnezzar had carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon.
4This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon:
5"Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce.
6Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease.
7Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper."
Jeremiah 29:1,4-7 (NIV)
1Shout with joy to God, all the earth!
2Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious!
3Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you.
4All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name." Selah
5Come and see what God has done, how awesome his works in man's behalf!
6He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot- come, let us rejoice in him.
7He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations- let not the rebellious rise up against him. Selah
8Praise our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard;
9he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.
10For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver.
11You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs.
12You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.
Psalms 66:1-12 (NIV)
8Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel,
9for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God's word is not chained.
10Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.
11Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him;
12if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us;
13if we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
14Keep reminding them of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen.
15Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:8-15 (NIV)
11Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.
12As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance
13and called out in a loud voice, "Jesus, Master, have pity on us!"
14When he saw them, he said, "Go, show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were cleansed.
15One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice.
16He threw himself at Jesus' feet and thanked him--and he was a Samaritan.
17Jesus asked, "Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?
18Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?"
19Then he said to him, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well."
Luke 17:11-19 (NIV)
