A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.
 He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.
 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.
 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.
 The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.
 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.
 Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
 That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.
 They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
 And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted.
2 Corinthians 4:6-14
 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
