The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. § Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left. § I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.
Do not be like the horse or like the mule, which have no understanding, which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, else they will not come near you. Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; but he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.
Ps. 25:12; Matt. 6:22; Ps. 119:105; Isa. 30:21; Ps. 32:8–11; Jer. 10:23

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. § For so He gives His beloved sleep.
They stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not charge them with this sin.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep. § Absent from the body . . . present with the Lord.
