How great is Your goodness, which You have
laid up for those who fear You.
Since the beginning of the world men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, who acts for the one who waits for Him. § “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. § You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. For with You is the foundation of life; in Your light we see light.
Godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.
Ps. 31:19; Isa. 64:4; 1 Cor. 2:9–10; Ps. 16:11; 36:7–9; 1 Tim. 4:8
The Son of God . . . has eyes like a flame of fire.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. § You have set our iniquities before You, our secret sins in the light of Your countenance. § The Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then . . . Peter went out and wept bitterly.
Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He knew all men, and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man. § 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 Lord knows those who are His. § I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own… My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
