Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
1 Samuel 2:7
Jehovah maketh poor, and maketh rich: He bringeth low, he also lifteth up.
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
Yet setteth he the needy on high from affliction, And maketh him families like a flock.
And all the trees of the field shall know that I, Jehovah, have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish; I, Jehovah, have spoken and have done it.
He hath put down princes from their thrones, And hath exalted them of low degree.
Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
But let the brother of low degree glory in his high estate:
But he giveth more grace. Wherefore the scripture'saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace to the humble.
1 Peter 5:10
And the God of all grace, who called you unto his eternal glory in Christ, after that ye have suffered a little while, shall himself perfect, establish, strengthen you.
The eternal God is thy dwelling-place, And underneath are the everlasting arms. And he thrust out the enemy from before thee, And said, Destroy.
1 Peter 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his great mercy begat us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
that I will give the rain of your land in its season, the former rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy grain, and thy new wine, and thine oil.
