Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom: but a man of understanding walketh uprightly.
 Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellers they are established.
 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!
 The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.
 The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.
 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:
 And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.
 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
 And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father’s house.
 And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father’s house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.
1 Peter 5:1-7
 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
 Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
 Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
 And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?
 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:
 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses.
 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.
 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.
