My Presence will go with you,
and I will give you rest. 

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you … The Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed. § Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. § In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” § Our sufficiency is from God.

Do not lead us into temptation. § O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps. § My times are in Your hand.

Ex. 33:14; Deut. 31:6, 8; Josh. 1:9; Prov. 3:6;
Heb. 13:5–6; 2 Cor. 3:5; Matt. 6:13; Jer. 10:23; Ps. 31:15


Let us consider one another in order
to stir up love and good works. 

How forceful are right words! § I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder.

Those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord listened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name. § If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.

The Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone.” § Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up.

Let us not … put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way. § Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ … [Consider] yourself lest you also be tempted.

Heb. 10:24; Job 6:25; 2 Peter 3:1; Mal. 3:16;
Matt. 18:19; Gen. 2:18; Eccl. 4:9–10; Rom. 14:13; Gal. 6:2, 1
