At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.
 And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall respect that which his fingers have made, either the groves, or the images.
 In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.
 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:
 In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt thou make thy seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.
 Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
 And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
2 Corinthians 13:5-13
 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.
 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates.
 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.
 Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.
 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
 Greet one another with an holy kiss.
 All the saints salute you.
 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,
 And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?
 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.
 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?
 But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.
 And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
