For what man is he that can know the counsel of God? or who can think what the will of the Lord is?
 For the thoughts of mortal men are miserable, and our devices are but uncertain.
 For the corruptible body presseth down the soul, and the earthy tabernacle weigheth down the mind that museth upon many things.
 And hardly do we guess aright at things that are upon earth, and with labour do we find the things that are before us: but the things that are in heaven who hath searched out?
 And thy counsel who hath known, except thou give wisdom, and send thy Holy Spirit from above?
 For so the ways of them which lived on the earth were reformed, and men were taught the things that are pleasing unto thee, and were saved through wisdom.
 She preserved the first formed father of the world, that was created alone, and brought him out of his fall,
 And gave him power to rule all things.
 But when the unrighteous went away from her in his anger, he perished also in the fury wherewith he murdered his brother.
 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.
 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
 Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.
1 Corinthians 12:28-13:3
 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
 Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
