The living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments, His judgments, and His statutes which I command you today, lest—when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them … when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God. For it is He who gives you power to get wealth.
Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep. § They did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; but it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them. § There are many who say, “Who will show us any good?” Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.

They sang as it were a new song.
A new and living way which He consecrated for us. § Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior. § For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but to Your name give glory. § To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. § You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation. § I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number … crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
