Titus 3:3-8
Mark 13:9-13

Proverbs 15:33-16:7
[33] The fear of the LORD is instruction in wisdom,
and humility goes before honor.

Chapter 16
[1] The plans of the mind belong to man,
but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.
[2] All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,
but the LORD weighs the spirit.
[3] Commit your work to the LORD,
and your plans will be established.
[4] The LORD has made everything for its purpose,
even the wicked for the day of trouble.
[5] Every one who is arrogant is an abomination to the LORD;
be assured, he will not go unpunished.
[6] By loyalty and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
and by the fear of the LORD a man avoids evil.
[7] When a man’s ways please the LORD,
he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.

Hosea 14:9-10
[9] Whoever is wise, let him understand these things;
whoever is discerning, let him know them;
for the ways of the LORD are right,
and the upright walk in them,
but transgressors stumble in them.
[10] …

Titus 3:3-8
[3] For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by men and hating one another;
[4] but when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,
[5] he saved us, not because of deeds done by us in righteousness, but in virtue of his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal in the Holy Spirit,
[6] which he poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
[7] so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life.
[8] The saying is sure.
I desire you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to apply themselves to good deeds; these are excellent and profitable to men.

Mark 13:9-13
[9] “But take heed to yourselves; for they will deliver you up to councils; and you will be beaten in synagogues; and you will stand before governors and kings for my sake, to bear testimony before them.
[10] And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.
[11] And when they bring you to trial and deliver you up, do not be anxious beforehand what you are to say; but say whatever is given you in that hour, for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.
[12] And brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death;
[13] and you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
