The ways of the Lord are right;
the righteous walk in them, but
transgressors stumble in them.
To you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, … “a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense.” § The way of the Lord is strength for the upright, but destruction will come to the workers of iniquity.
He who has ears to hear, let him hear! § Whoever is wise will observe these things, and they will understand the lovingkindness of the Lord. § The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. § If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God. § Whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance.
He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God. § You are not willing to come to Me that you may have life. § My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one!
I and My Father are one … The Father is in Me, and I in Him. § If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also. § Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father.” § Here am I and the children whom God has given Me. § He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. § “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” § Before Abraham was, I AM. § God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”
To the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.” § He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. § In Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
