“Oh, that You would bless me indeed . . . and that You would
keep me from evil!” . . . So God granted him what he requested.
The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. § When He gives quietness, who then can make trouble? And when He hides His face, who then can see Him?
Salvation belongs to the Lord. Your blessing is upon Your people. § How great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, which You have prepared for those who trust in You in the presence of the sons of men! § I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. § The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, and none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.

It is a night of solemn observance to the Lord for
bringing them out of the land of Egypt.
The Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
He knelt down and prayed … And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
It was the Preparation Day of the Passover, and about the sixth hour … They took Jesus and led Him away … to a place called … Golgotha, where they crucified Him.
Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast.
