The Word: Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress; instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle; and it shall make a name for the LORD, an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.” (Isaiah 55:13)
The Word: Man who is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble. He comes forth like a flower and withers; he flees also like a shadow and continues not. And [Lord] do You open Your eyes upon such a one, and bring me into judgment with You? Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? No one!

I am exceedingly angry with the nations at ease; For I was a little angry, An
The Word: God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the holy ones, and to be held in reverence by all those around Him. O LORD God of hosts (Adonai Elohei-Tzva’ot), Who is mighty like You, O LORD? Your faithfulness also surrounds You. You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, You still them. (Psalm 89:7-9).
