He stayeth his rough wind in the day of the east wind.
Let us fall now into the hand of the LORD; for his mercies [are] great.--I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.--He will not always chide: neither will he keep [his anger] for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.-- For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we [are] dust.--I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it].--Satan hath desired [to have] you, that he may sift [you] as wheat: but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not.
Thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones [is] as a storm [against] the wall.
I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen [it]: and, behold, the half was not told me.
The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon [is] here.--We beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
My speech and my preaching [was] . . . in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.--But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty.--We shall see him as he is.--In my flesh shall I see God.--I shall be satisfied.
