Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.
 For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.
 Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:
 And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
 A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.
 For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellers there is safety.
 Wisdom is too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.
 He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous person.
 The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.
 If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?
 Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof.
 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
 Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.
 And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.
 And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
2 Timothy 3:10-12
 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
