1 1 Give the Lord thanks,
     Give the Lord thanks,
         because good is He,
         because good is He,
    for His mercy,
    for His mercy,
         is everlasting,
        is everlasting.
      Give the Lord thanks because good is He
      for His mercy is everlasting.
    Give the Lord thanks
    for His mercy
         is everlasting.
2 2 House of Israel,
    be pleased to say,
        "Because His mercy
          is everlasting."
3    House of Aaron,
    be pleased to say,
        "Because His mercy
          is everlasting."
4  Be pleased to say, you, fearing the Lord,
     "For His mercy is everlasting."
    Be pleased to say,
    "For His mercy
          is everlasting."
3 5 Out of distress
    I called on Jah.
        He did answer me
         in Jah's spacious place.
6    The LORD's for me.
     I will not fear.
        What can mankind do
         to do harm to me?
7 The LORD's for me in those that help me,
     and I shall look at those who hate me.
8    It is better
    to trust the LORD
         than to trust in man.
4 9 It is better
    to trust the LORD
         than to trust princes.
10    All the nations turned
    around to Me
    in the Lord's name
         because I cause them
         to be circumcised.
11 They turn around and round unto Me,
      also around and around to Me
    in the Lord's name
    for I cause them
          to be circumcised.
5 12 They turned around
    to Me like bees,
         quenched as fire in thorns
         in name of the Lord
    because I do
    circumcise them.
13     You thrust sore at Me
          to die violently,
       but LORD helped Me. 14  Jah's My strength and song
       and is become to Me salvation.
15    Shoutings of joy
    and salvation
          in tents of righteous.
6 The Lord's right hand
         does valiantly.
16     The Lord's right hand is
          highly exalted.
    The Lord's right hand
    does valiantly.
17     So I shall not die,
          but shall testify
      the works of Jah: 18  Jah sore chastened Me,
      but unto death, He's not given Me.
19    Open to Me
    gates of the just.
          I'll enter through them.
7 20 This is the gate,
            this is the gate
         that leads to the LORD,
         that leads to the LORD.
         I will thank Jah.
         I will thank Jah.
         Righteous enter it.
         Righteous enter it.
21    I will praise You
    because You heard me,
         and You've become salvation to me
         This is the gate,
          this is the gate
          that leads to the LORD.
8 22 This is the Stone,
      this is the Stone
      the builders refused,
      the builders refused.
      It's become Head,
      It's become Head
      of gentiles and Jews,
      of gentiles and Jews.
      This, the stone which the builders refused
        has become Head of gentiles and Jews.
23    This came from the
    Lord. Marvelous
          it is in our eyes.
9 24 This is the day,
    this is the day
         that the Lord did it,
         that the Lord did it.
    We will rejoice,
    we will rejoice
         and be glad in it,
         and be glad in it.
     This is the day that the Lord did it.
     We will rejoice and be glad in it.
    This is the day,
    This is the day,
         that the Lord did it.
10 25 Hosanna Lord!
     Make prosperous!
26     He who comes in name
         of the Lord is bless'd.
    We have blessed you
    from the Lord's house.
27     The Lord, He is God
          and shined light to us.
     The sacrifice which is for this feast,
     bind it with cords until altar it meets.
    Bind it with cords,
    until the horns,
         horns of the altar.
11 28 You are my God,
    and I thank You,
         My God, I extol,
         I will extol You.
29    Give the Lord thanks
    for good is He
         because His mercy
         is everlasting.
     Give the Lord thanks because good is He
     for His mercy is everlasting.
    Give the Lord thanks
    for His mercy
         is everlasting.

Zechariah 11:10 And I took My staff Beauty and cut it asunder, that I might break My covenant, which I then made with all the peoples.
2:11  And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee.
6:12  And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
13  Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
14  And the crowns shall be to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of the LORD.
15  And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.
Romans 15:8  Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:
9  And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.
10  And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people.
11  And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people.
12  And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.
Psalm 18:43 You saved Me from the contentions,
of the people.
You made Me Head of the nations,
a people whom I had not known.
They shall serve me
44 upon the hearing of the ear.
They shall obey, submit to me,
sons of strangers to me falsely.
49 Therefore to Thee, Lord, thanks I give
in the midst of the nations.
Unto Your name psalms I will sing,
50 great salvations unto His king,
and to His Messiah mercy,
unto David and to his seed forever.
Deuteronomy 32:43  (AV) Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.
Psalm 117:1  O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
Isaiah 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

Thine inheritance, the nations,
and the uttermost parts of earth

Ezra 3:10 And when the builders laid the foundation of the temple of Jehovah, they set the priests in their apparel, with trumpets, and the Levites the sons of Asaph, with cymbals, to praise Jehovah according to the directions of David king of Israel.
 11 And they sang alternately together in praising and giving thanks to Jehovah: For he is good, for his loving-kindness endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout to the praise of Jehovah, because the foundation of the house of Jehovah was laid.
Ga 6:16  And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

Ro 1:4  And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
6:5  For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
Php 3:10  That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
1Co 15:42  So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
Mt 22:30  For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
Lu 20:35  But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: 36  Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
Re 20:6  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Ephesians 3:3 that by revelation the mystery has been made known to me, (according as I have written before briefly,
4  by which, in reading it, ye can understand my intelligence in the mystery of the Christ,)
5  which in other generations has not been made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the power of the Spirit,
6  that they who are of the nations should be joint heirs, and a joint body, and joint partakers of his promise in Christ Jesus by the glad tidings;
Hebrews 13:5 Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you.
6  Therefore, we may boldly say:
     The Lord is my helper;
    I will not be afraid.
    What can man do to me?
Romans 11:17  But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them and became a fellow partaker of the root of fatness of the olive tree,  18  Do not boast against the branches; but if you boast, remember that it is not you who bear the root, but the root you.  19  You will say then, Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.  20  Rightly said: they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be high-minded, but fear;  21  For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will He spare you.  22  Behold then the kindness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but on you, the kindness of God, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off.  23  And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to  graft  them in again.  24  For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree and were grafted contrary to nature into the cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree!
Ecclesiastes 7:25  (Darby) I turned, I and my heart, to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom and reason, and to know wickedness to be folly, and foolishness to be madness;
1 Kings 21:4  (Darby) And Ahab came into his house sullen and vexed because of the word that Naboth the Jizreelite had spoken to him; for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he lay down on his bed, and turned away his face, and ate no bread.
2 Kings 20:2  (AV) Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the LORD, saying,
2 Chronicles 29:6  (AV) For our fathers have trespassed, and done that which was evil in the eyes of the LORD our God, and have forsaken him, and have turned away their faces from the habitation of the LORD, and turned their backs.
Ezra 6:22  (AV) And kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with joy: for the LORD had made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of God, the God of Israel.
1 Kings 18:37  (AV) Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
Ephesians 2:11  Therefore remember that once you, the Gentiles in the flesh, those who are called uncircumcision by that which is called  circumcision  in the flesh made by hands,  12  That you were at that time apart from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world.  
13  But now in Christ Jesus you who were once far off have become near in the blood of Christ.  14  For He Himself is our peace, He who has made both one and has broken down the middle wall of partition, the enmity,  15  Abolishing in His flesh the law of the commandments in ordinances, that He might create the two in Himself into one new man, so making peace,  16  And might reconcile both in one Body to God through the cross, having slain the enmity by it.  17  And coming, He announced peace as the gospel to you who were far off, and peace to those who were near,  
18  For through Him we both have access in one Spirit unto the Father.  19  So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,  20  Being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone;  21  In whom all the building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord;
Colossians 2:11 In Him also you were  circumcised  with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the flesh, in the circumcision of Christ,  12  Buried together with Him in baptism, in which also you were raised together with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who raised Him from the dead.  13  And you, though dead in your offenses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our offenses;
Philippians 3:3  For we are the  circumcision , the ones who serve by the Spirit of God and boast in Christ Jesus and have no confidence in the flesh,
Romans 2:28  For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly; neither is  circumcision  that which is outward in the flesh.  29  But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and  circumcision  is of the heart, in spirit, not in letter, whose praise is not from men, but from God.  3:1  What then is the advantage of the Jew? Or what is the profit of  circumcision ?  2  Much in every way. First, that they were entrusted with the oracles of God.
Isaiah 53:10 But the LORD was pleased To crush Him, putting {Him} to grief; If He would render Himself {as} a guilt offering, He will see a seed, He will prolong {His} days, And the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand.

Save those who trust from those who self-raise.

1Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: {for us: some read, for you}
22  Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
23  Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: {himself: or, his cause}
24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
3:18  For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
4:1  Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
Isaiah 53:4  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. {wounded: or, tormented} {stripes: Heb. bruise}
6  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. {laid…: Heb. made the iniquity of us all to meet on him}
Romans 4:25  Who was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification.
5:6  For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. {in due time: or, according to the time}
7  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
2Corinthians 5:21  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Galatians 1:4  Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
3:13  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
Ephesians 2:16  And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
Colossians 1:21  And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled {in…: or, by your mind in}
22  In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
Hebrews 9:26  For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
28  So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
Psalm 16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and
my glory does excel.
E'en, my flesh shall rest in hope,
10 For You will not abandon my
soul in Sheol to be.
Your godly One, You'll not suffer
corruption thus to see.
John 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2  But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3  To him the porter opens; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
 5  And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
6  This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
7  Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
 8  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that  they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
16  And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
17  Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18  No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
John 14:7  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Ephesians 2:18  For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Jeremiah 31:31  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: {although…: or, should I have continued an husband unto them?}
33  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34  And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
Ephesians 2:20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,
Psalm 144:12  (AV) That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:
Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and they shall call His name Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
29:9  Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. {cry ye…: or, take your pleasure, and riot}
10  For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. {rulers: Heb. heads}
11  And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: {book: or, letter}
12  And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
13  Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
14  Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. {proceed: Heb. add}
15  Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
Judges 13:18  And the Angel of Jehovah said to him, How is it that thou askest after my name, seeing it is wonderful?
Job 5:9  Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvelous things without number: {unsearchable: Heb. there is no search} {without…: Heb. till there be no number}
9:10  Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.
37:5  God thundereth marvelously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.
14  Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
42:3  Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
Psalm 72:18  Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.
119:18  Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law. {Open: Heb. Reveal}
27  Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
139:6  O knowledge too wonderful for me! it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
14  I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. {right…: Heb. greatly}
Proverbs 30:18 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:
19  The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the heart of the sea; and the way of a mighty man with a virgin.
Matthew 21:1  And when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples,  2  Saying to them, Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied and a colt with her; untie them and lead them to Me.  3  And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, The Lord has need of them; and immediately he will send them.  
4  Now this took place in order that what was spoken through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying,  5  "Say to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your King is coming to you, meek and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, a foal of a beast of burden.''  
6  And the disciples went and did as Jesus directed them,  7  And led the donkey and the colt. And they put their garments on them, and He sat upon them.  8  And most of the crowd spread their own garments in the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them in the road.
9  And the crowds who went before Him and those who followed cried out, saying, Hosanna  to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!  Hosanna  in the highest!
15  But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonders that He did and the children who were crying out in the temple and saying,  Hosanna  to the Son of David, they were indignant.
Zechariah 9:9  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and saved; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
Lu 13:35  Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
1 Corinthians 3:21  So then let no one boast in men, for  all  things  are   yours ,  22  Whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or things present or things to come;  all   are   yours ,  23  But you  are  Christ's, and Christ is God's.
Romans 13:1  Let every person be subject to  the  authorities over him, for there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are ordained by God.  2  So then he who resists  the  authority opposes God's ordination, and those who oppose will receive judgment to themselves.  3  For  the  rulers are not a terror to  the  good work, but to  the  evil. Do you want to have no fear of  the  authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from him;  4  For he is a servant of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, fear; he does not bear  the   sword  in vain; for he is a servant of God, an avenger for wrath to him who practices evil.
1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened; for our  Passover ,  Christ, also has been sacrificed.
Exodus 12:21  Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.
27  That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD’S passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.
34:25  Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the morning.
Deuteronomy 16:2  Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the LORD thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD shall choose to place his name there.
5  Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee:
6  But at the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.
2Chronicles 30:15  Then they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the second month: and the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought in the burnt offerings into the house of the LORD.
18  For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim, and Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet did they eat the passover otherwise than it was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, The good LORD pardon every one
35:1  Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the LORD in Jerusalem: and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.
6  So kill the passover, and sanctify yourselves, and prepare your brethren, that they may do according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses.
11  And they killed the passover, and the priests sprinkled the blood from their hands, and the Levites flayed them.
13  And they roasted the passover with fire according to the ordinance: but the other holy offerings sod they in pots, and in caldrons, and in pans, and divided them speedily among all the people.
Ezra 6:20  For the priests and the Levites were purified together, all of them were pure, and killed the passover for  all the children of the captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves.
John 1:29  The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, Behold, the  Lamb  of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
Acts 8:32  Now the passage of Scripture which he was reading was this: "As a sheep He was led to slaughter; and as a  lamb before its shearer is dumb, so He does not open His mouth.  33  In His humiliation His judgment was taken away. Who shall declare His generation? For His life is taken away from the earth.''
Isaiah 53:7  He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opens not his mouth. 8  He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people the stroke was on them. 9  And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither [was any] deceit in his mouth. 10  Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put [him] to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see [his] seed, he shall prolong [his] days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
1 Peter 1:18  Knowing that it was not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, that you were redeemed from your vain manner of life handed down from your fathers,  19  But with precious blood, as of a  Lamb  without blemish and without spot, the blood of Christ;  20  Who was foreknown before the foundation of the world but has been manifested in the last of times for your sake,
Revelation 7:14  And I said to him, My lord, you know. And he said to me, These are those who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the  Lamb .
12:11  And they overcame him because of the blood of the  Lamb  and because of the word of their testimony, and they loved not their soul-life even unto death.
Romans 9:16  So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows  mercy .
23  In order that He might make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of  mercy , which He had before prepared unto glory,  
24  Even us, whom He has also called, not only from among the Jews but also from among the Gentiles?
11:30  For just as you once disobeyed God, but now have been shown  mercy  because of their disobedience,  
31  So these also now have disobeyed, so that because of the  mercy  shown to you they also now may be shown  mercy .  
32  For God has shut up all in disobedience that He might show  mercy  to all.  
33  O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and untraceable His ways!
15:8  For I say that Christ has become a servant of the circumcision for the sake of God's truthfulness, to confirm the promises given to the fathers,  
9  And that the Gentiles should glorify God for His  mercy , as it is written, "Therefore I will extol You among the Gentiles, and I will sing praise to Your name.''
1 Corinthians 7:25  Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord, but I give my opinion as one who has been shown  mercy  by the Lord to be faithful.
John 6:4  Now the  Passover , the feast of the Jews, was near.
51 I am the living bread which came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever; And the bread which I will give is My  flesh , given for the life of the world.  52  The Jews then contended with one another, saying, How can this man give us His  flesh  to eat?  53  Jesus therefore said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless you eat the  flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you do not have life within yourselves.  54  He who eats My  flesh  and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up in the last day.  55  For My  flesh  is true food, and My blood is true drink.  56  He who eats My  flesh  and drinks My blood abides in Me and I in him.  57  As the living Father has sent Me and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also shall live because of Me.  58  This is the bread which came down out of heaven, not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread shall live forever.
Hosea 11:4 I led them with cords of a man, with thick cords of love, And I became to them as one who lifts the yoke from their jaws; And I bent down. I fed them.
Ecclesiastes 12:6  Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. (referring to death. different Hebrew word for "cord" than Ps 80:27. It is the same as the 1st word for "cord" in Hos 11:4. Also used synonymously in Isa 5:18)
John 1:14  And the Word became flesh and  tabernacled  among us (and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only Begotten from the Father), full of grace and reality.
1 John 4:2  In this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the  flesh  is of God,  3  And every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God; and this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming and now is already in the world.
Colossians 1:22  He now has reconciled in the body of His  flesh  through death, to present you holy and without blemish and without reproach before Him;
1 Timothy 3:16  And confessedly, great is the mystery of godliness: He who was manifested in the  flesh , Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the nations, Believed on in the world, Taken up in glory.
Hebrews 2:14  Since therefore the children have shared in blood and  flesh , He also Himself in like manner partook of the same, that through death He might destroy him who has the might of death, that is, the devil,  15  And might release those who because of the fear of death through all their life were held in slavery.
1 Peter 4:1  Since Christ therefore has suffered in the  flesh , you also arm yourselves with the same mind (because he who has suffered in the  flesh  has ceased from sin),  2  No longer to live the rest of the time in the  flesh  in the lusts of men, but in the will of God.  3  For the time which has passed is sufficient for you to have carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having gone on in licentiousness, lusts, debaucheries, carousings, drinking bouts, and unlawful idolatries.
Romans 8:3  For that which the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, sending His own Son in the likeness of the flesh of sin and concerning sin, condemned sin in the flesh,  4  That the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit.
Philippians 2:5  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus,  6  Who, existing in the form of God, did not consider being equal with God a treasure to be grasped,  7  But emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave, becoming in the likeness of men;  8  And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, becoming obedient even unto death, and that the death of a cross.
Luke 12:50  But I have a  baptism  to be baptized with, and how I am pressed until it is accomplished!
2 Corinthians 5:1  For we know that if our earthly tabernacle dwelling is taken down, we have a building from God, a dwelling not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens.  2  For also in this we groan, longing to be  clothed  upon with our dwelling place from heaven,  3  If indeed, being  clothed , we will not be found naked.  4  For also, we who are in this tabernacle groan, being burdened, in that we do not desire to be unclothed, but  clothed  upon, that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
Philippians 1:21  For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.  22  But if I am to live in the  flesh , if this to me is fruit for my work, then I do not know what I will choose.  23  But I am constrained between the two, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for this is far better;  24  But to remain in the  flesh  is more necessary for your sake.
Ezekiel 19:11  And she had strong rods for the scepters of them that bare rule, and her stature was exalted among the thick branches, and she appeared in her height with the multitude of her branches.
31:3  Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs.
10  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast lifted up thyself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his height;
14  To the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt themselves for their height, neither shoot up their top among the thick boughs, neither their trees stand up in their height, all that drink water: for they are all delivered unto death, to the nether parts of the earth, in the midst of the children of men, with them that go down to the pit.
Judges 15:13  And they spake unto him, saying, No; but we will bind thee fast, and deliver thee into their hand: but surely we will not kill thee. And they bound him with two new cords, and brought him up from the rock. 14  And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him: and the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands loosed from off his hands.
16:11  And he said unto her, If they bind me fast with new cords that never were occupied, then shall I be weak, and be as another man. 12  Delilah therefore took new cords, and bound him therewith, and said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And there were liers in wait abiding in the chamber. And he brake them from off his arms like a thread.
Ezekiel 3:25  But thou, O son of man, behold, they shall put cords upon thee, and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them:
Exodus 29:12  And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger, and pour all the blood beside the bottom of the altar.
Leviticus 4:25  And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour out his blood at the bottom of the altar of burnt offering.
30  And the priest shall take of the blood thereof with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the altar.
34  And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the altar:
8:15  And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to make reconciliation upon it.
9:9  And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar:
Leviticus 4:7  And the priest shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar of sweet incense before the LORD, which is in the tabernacle of the congregation; and shall pour all the blood of the bullock at the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
18  And he shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar which is before the LORD, that is in the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall pour out all the blood at the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
16:18  And he shall go out unto the altar that is before the LORD, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood of the bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about.
Hebrews 8:5  Who serve the example and shadow of the  heavenly  things, even as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to complete the tabernacle; for, "See,'' He said, "that you make all things according to the pattern that was shown to you in the mountain.''
9:11  But Christ, having come as a High Priest of the good things that have come into being, through the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made by hands, that is, not of this creation,  12  And not through the  blood  of goats and calves but through His own  blood , entered once for all into the Holy of Holies, obtaining an eternal redemption.  13  For if the  blood  of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who are defiled sanctifies to the purity of the flesh,  14  How much more will the  blood  of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
22  And almost all things are purified by blood according to the law, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.  23  It was necessary therefore for the examples of the things in the heavens to be purified by these, but the  heavenly  things themselves, by better sacrifices than these.  24  For Christ did not enter into a holy place made by hands, a figure of the true, but into heaven itself, to appear now before the face of God for us;  25  Nor in order that He might offer Himself often, just as the high priest enters into the Holy of Holies year by year by the blood of other creatures;  26  Since then He would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world. But now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested for the putting away of sin through the sacrifice of Himself.  27  And inasmuch as it is reserved for men to die once, and after this comes judgment,  28  So Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time to those who eagerly await Him, apart from sin, unto salvation.
10:14  For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.  15  And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after having said,  16  "This is the covenant which I will covenant with them after those days, says the Lord: I will impart My laws upon their hearts, and upon their mind I will inscribe them,''  17  He then says, "And their sins and their lawlessnesses I shall by no means remember anymore.''  18  Now where forgiveness of these is, there is no longer an offering for sin.  19  Having therefore, brothers, boldness for entering the Holy of Holies in the  blood of Jesus,  20  Which entrance He initiated for us as a new and living way through the veil, that is, His flesh,
13:10  We have an altar from which they who are serving the tabernacle have no right to eat.  11  For the bodies of those animals whose  blood  is brought into the Holy of Holies for sin by the high priest are burned up outside the camp.  12  Therefore also Jesus, that He might sanctify the people through His own  blood , suffered outside the gate.  13  Let us therefore go forth unto Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach.  14  For we do not have here a remaining city, but we seek after the one to come.  15  Through Him then let us offer up a sacrifice of praise continually to God, that is, the fruit of lips confessing His name.  16  But do not forget doing good and sharing with others, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
Re 8:2  And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.  3  And another Angel came and stood at the  altar , having a golden censer, and much incense was given to Him to offer with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden  altar  which was before the throne.  4  And the smoke of the incense went up with the prayers of the saints out of the hand of the Angel before God.  5  And the Angel took the censer and filled it with the fire of the  altar  and cast it to the earth; and there were thunders and voices and lightnings and an earthquake.
9:13  And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
11:19  And the temple of God which is in  heaven  was opened, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple; and there were lightnings and voices and thunders and an earthquake and great hail.
13:6  And he opened his mouth for blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, which tabernacle in  heaven .
14:17  And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.  18  And another angel came out of the  altar , he who has authority over fire, and he cried with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, Send forth your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripened.
15:5  And after these things I saw, and the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in  heaven  was opened,  6  And the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple, clothed in clean bright linen and girded around the breasts with golden girdles.
16:7  And I heard the  altar  saying, Yes, Lord God the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.
Luke 1:35  And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will  overshadow  you; therefore also the holy thing which is born will be called the Son of God.
Matthew 1:18  Now the origin of Jesus Christ was in this way: His mother, Mary, after she had been engaged to Joseph, before they came together, was found to be with child of the Holy Spirit.  19  And Joseph her husband, being righteous and not willing to disgrace her openly, intended to send her away secretly.  20  But while he pondered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife, for that which has been begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit.  21  And she will bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins.  22  Now all this has happened so that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying,  23  "Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel'' (which is translated, God with us).
3:16  And having been baptized, Jesus went up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a  dove  and coming upon Him.  17  And behold, a voice out of the heavens, saying, This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I have found My delight.
Mark 1:9  And in those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized in the Jordan by John.  10  And immediately, coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens being parted and the Spirit as a  dove  descending upon Him.  11  And a voice came out of the heavens: You are My Son, the Beloved; in You I have found My delight.
Luke 3:21  Now when all the people were baptized and as Jesus was baptized and was praying, heaven was opened,  22  And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form as a  dove  upon Him. And a voice came out of heaven: You are My Son, the Beloved; in You I have found My delight.
John 1:31  And I did not know Him, but in order that He might be manifested to Israel, for this reason I came baptizing in water.  32  And John testified saying, I beheld the Spirit descending as a  dove  out of heaven, and He abode upon Him.  33  And I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water, He said to me, He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and abiding upon Him, this is He who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.  34  And I have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God.
1 Tim 3:16  And confessedly, great is the mystery of godliness: He who was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the nations, Believed on in the world, Taken up in glory.
Joshua 5:13  And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?
14  And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?
Matthew 26:30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives. (Mat 26:30 KJV)
Mark 14:26 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives. (Mar 14:26 KJV)
Jeremiah 5:5 I will go unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they know the way of Jehovah, the judgment of their God; but these have altogether broken the yoke, have burst the bonds.
