I know their sorrows. 

A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. § Sympathize with our weaknesses.

He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses. § Jesus … being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well.

When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled. Jesus wept. § For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.

He looked down from the height of His sanctuary; from heaven the Lord viewed the earth, to hear the groaning of the prisoner, to release those appointed to death. § He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold. § When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then You knew my path.

He who touches you touches the apple of His eye. § In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence saved them.

Ex. 3:7; Isa. 53:3; Heb. 4:15; Matt. 8:17; John 4:6, 11:33,
11:35; Heb. 2:18; Ps. 102:19–20; Job 23:10; Ps. 142:3; Zech. 2:8; Isa. 63:9


I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day. 

The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich. § He who waters will also be watered.

My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. Do you not say, “There are still four months and then comes the harvest”? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. § The kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. Now when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard.

Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. § Do business till I come. § I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

John 9:4; Prov. 13:4; 11:25; John 4:34–36;
Matt. 20:1–2; 2 Tim. 4:2; Luke 19:13; 1 Cor. 15:10
