And he built Tadmor in the wilderness and all the store cities which he built in Hamath.
Again, he maketh the wilderness a standing water, and watersprings of a dry ground. There he setteth the hungry, that they may build them a city to dwell in,
He led them forth by the right way, that they might go to the city where they dwelt.
There he setteth the hungry, that they may build them a city to dwell in,
Jesus answered, and said unto him, "If a man love me and will keep my sayings, my father also will love him, and we will come unto him, and will dwell with him. He that loveth me not, keepeth not my sayings. And the words which ye hear are not mine, but the father's, which sent me. "This have I spoken unto you being yet present with you. read more.
But that comforter, which is the holy ghost - whom my father will send in my name - he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance whatsoever I have told you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. Not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your hearts be grieved, neither fear ye. "Ye have heard how I said unto you, 'I go and come again unto you.' If ye loved me, ye would verily rejoice, because I said I go unto the father. For the father is greater than I. And now have I showed you, before it come: that when it is come to pass, ye might believe. Hereafter will I not talk many words unto you.

For had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
O that men would therefore praise the LORD for his goodness, and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men! - That they would exalt him in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the seat of the elders, which turneth floods into dry land, and drieth up the watersprings! read more.
A fruitful land maketh he barren, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein. Again, he maketh the wilderness a standing water, and watersprings of a dry ground. There he setteth the hungry, that they may build them a city to dwell in, that they may sow their land and plant vineyards, to yield them fruits of increase. He blesseth them, so that they multiply exceedingly, and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
