O Lord, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.—For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.—Blessed is the one you choose and bring near, to dwell in your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, the holiness of your temple!
The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.—Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.
Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us,… let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience.
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.—You are the most handsome of the sons of men; grace is poured upon your lips.—All spoke well of him and marveled at the gracious words that were coming from his mouth.—You have tasted that the Lord is good.—Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself.—“Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen.”
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!—With great delight I sat in his shadow, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”—Grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ's gift.—As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.
28 But for me it is good to obe near God;
I have made the Lord God my prefuge,
that I may qtell of all your works.
8 O Lord, I clove the habitation of your house
10 For a day hin your courts is better
I would rather be ia doorkeeper in the house of my God
4 kBlessed is the one you choose and bring near,
to ldwell in your courts!
We shall be msatisfied with the goodness of your house,
25 The Lord is good to those who pwait for him,
18 Therefore the Lord owaits to be gracious to you,
and therefore he pexalts himself to show mercy to you.
qblessed are all those who wait for him.
9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that sthough he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.
2 You are xthe most handsome of the sons of men;
ygrace is poured upon your lips;
10 Whoever believes in the Son of God zhas the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God ahas made him a liar, bbecause he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son.
bBlessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
so is my mbeloved among the young men.
With great delight I sat nin his shadow,
and his ofruit was sweet to my taste.
9 But he said to me, j“My grace is sufficient for you, for kmy power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that lthe power of Christ may rest upon me.
