Therefore shall they receive a glorious kingdom, and a beautiful crown from the Lord’s hand: for with his right hand shall he cover them, and with his arm shall he protect them.
 He shall take to him his jealousy for complete armour, and make the creature his weapon for the revenge of his enemies.
 He shall put on righteousness as a breastplate, and true judgment instead of an helmet.
 He shall take holiness for an invincible shield.
 His severe wrath shall he sharpen for a sword, and the world shall fight with him against the unwise.
 Then shall the right aiming thunderbolts go abroad; and from the clouds, as from a well drawn bow, shall they fly to the mark.
 And hailstones full of wrath shall be cast as out of a stone bow, and the water of the sea shall rage against them, and the floods shall cruelly drown them.
 Yea, a mighty wind shall stand up against them, and like a storm shall blow them away: thus iniquity shall lay waste the whole earth, and ill dealing shall overthrow the thrones of the mighty.
 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
 But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
 For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.
1 Peter 1:3-9
 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?
 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:
 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.
 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.
