God is not a man, that He should lie,
nor a son of man, that He should repent. 

The Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. § Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.

The faithful God … keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments. § All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth, to such as keep His covenant and His testimonies. § Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God … who keeps truth forever.

Num. 23:19; James 1:17; Heb. 13:8; Ps. 91:4;
Heb. 6:17–18; Deut. 7:9; Ps. 25:10; 146:5–6


If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.

He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. § My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. § He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him. § The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you.

I looked for someone to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

For every … priest taken from among men is appointed for men in things pertaining to God … He can have compassion on those who are ignorant and going astray … So also Christ … Though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey. § Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows.

Prov. 24:10; Isa. 40:29; 2 Cor. 12:9; Ps. 91:15;
Deut. 33:27; Ps. 69:20; Heb. 5:1–2, 5, 8–9; Isa. 53:4
