Behold! The Lamb of God.
It is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins. Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a body You have prepared for Me. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure. Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come– in the volume of the book it is written of Me– to do Your will, O God.” § He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not his mouth.
You were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold … but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He indeed was … manifest in these last times for you who through Him believe in God … that your faith and hope are in God.
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!

I will hope continually, and will praise You yet more and more.
Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected. § Leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God. § The path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
I love the Lord, because He has heard My voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live. § I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Praise is awaiting You, O God, in Zion. § They do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty.” § Whoever offers praise glorifies me. § Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. § Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
