Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives do I give to you.

The world is passing away, and the lust of it. § Surely every man walks about like a shadow; surely they busy themselves in vain; he heaps up riches, and does not know who will gather them. § What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.
Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. § I want you to be without care.
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. § The Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. § The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.

John 14:27; 1 John 2:17; Ps. 39:6; Rom. 6:21; Luke 10:41–42;
1 Cor. 7:32; John 16:33; 2 Thess. 3:16; Num. 6:24–26


The Spirit also helps in our weaknesses.

The Helper, the Holy Spirit. § Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? § It is God who works in you.

We do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust. § A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench.

The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.

Rom. 8:26; John 14:26; 1 Cor. 6:19; Phil. 2:13;
Rom. 8:26–27; Ps. 103:14; Isa. 42:3; Matt. 26:41; Ps. 23:1–2
