Then 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.
So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. § Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them. § My fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. § Exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
Every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned. § Behold, it is written before Me.
Mal. 3:16; Luke 24:15; Matt. 18:20; Phil. 4:3;
Col. 3:16; Heb. 3:13; Matt. 12:36–37; Isa. 65:6
The trees of the Lord are full of sap.
I will be like the dew to Israel; he shall grow like the lily, and lengthen his roots like Lebanon. His branches shall spread; his beauty shall be like an olive tree, and his fragrance like Lebanon. § Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit.
I, the Lord, have brought down the high tree and exalted the low tree, dried up the green tree and made the dry tree flourish.
The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing.
