Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked, and standeth not in the way of sinners, and sitteth not in the seat of scorners; But his delight is in Jehovah's law, and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he is as a tree planted by brooks of water, which giveth its fruit in its season, and whose leaf fadeth not; and all that he doeth prospereth.

When I see thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and stars, which thou hast established;read more.
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and splendour. Thou hast made him to rule over the works of thy hands; thou hast put everything under his feet: Sheep and oxen, all of them, and also the beasts of the field; The fowl of the heavens, and the fishes of the sea, whatever passeth through the paths of the seas. Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Psalm 104:1-34

Bless Jehovah, O my soul! Jehovah my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with majesty and splendour; Covering thyself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent-curtain; -- Who layeth the beams of his upper chambers in the waters, who maketh clouds his chariot, who walketh upon the wings of the wind;read more.
Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flame of fire. He laid the earth upon its foundations: it shall not be removed for ever. Thou hadst covered it with the deep, as with a vesture; the waters stood above the mountains: At thy rebuke they fled, at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away; -- The mountains rose, the valleys sank, unto the place which thou hadst founded for them; -- Thou hast set a bound which they may not pass over, that they turn not again to cover the earth. He sendeth the springs into the valleys: they run among the mountains; They give drink to every beast of the field; the wild asses quench their thirst. The birds of heaven dwell by them; they give forth their voice from among the branches. He watereth the mountains from his upper-chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. He maketh the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man; bringing forth bread out of the earth, And wine which gladdeneth the heart of man; making his face shine with oil; and with bread he strengtheneth man's heart. The trees of Jehovah are satisfied, the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted, Where the birds make their nests; as for the stork, the fir trees are her house. The high mountains are for the wild goats; the cliffs, a refuge for the rock-badgers. He made the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth its going down. Thou makest darkness, and it is night, wherein all the beasts of the forest creep forth: The young lions roar after the prey, and to seek their food from God. The sun ariseth, they retreat, and lay them down in their dens. Man goeth forth unto his work, and to his labour until the evening. How manifold are thy works, O Jehovah! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. Yonder is the great and wide sea: therein are moving things innumerable, living creatures small and great. There go the ships; there that leviathan, which thou hast formed to play therein. These all look unto thee, that thou mayest give their food in its season: That thou givest unto them, they gather; thou openest thy hand, they are filled with good. Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled; thou takest away their breath, they expire and return to their dust. Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created, and thou renewest the face of the earth. The glory of Jehovah will endure for ever; Jehovah will rejoice in his works. He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; he toucheth the mountains, and they smoke. I will sing unto Jehovah as long as I live; I will sing psalms to my God while I have my being. My meditation shall be pleasant unto him; I will rejoice in Jehovah.

Matthew 6:26-30

Look at the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, nor reap, nor gather into granaries, and your heavenly Father nourishes them. Are ye not much more excellent than they? But which of you by carefulness can add to his growth one cubit? And why are ye careful about clothing? Observe with attention the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin;read more.
but I say unto you, that not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed as one of these. But if God so clothe the herbage of the field, which is to-day, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, will he not much rather you, O ye of little faith?

Luke 12:24-27

Consider the ravens, that they sow not nor reap; which have neither storehouse nor granary; and God feeds them. How much better are ye than the birds? But which of you by being careful can add to his stature one cubit? If therefore ye cannot do even what is least, why are ye careful about the rest?read more.
Consider the lilies how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I say unto you, Not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed as one of these.

Let the proud be ashamed; for they have acted perversely towards me with falsehood: as for me, I meditate in thy precepts. Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that know thy testimonies. Let my heart be perfect in thy statutes, that I be not ashamed.read more.
CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation; I hope in thy word. Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me? For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; I do not forget thy statutes. How many shall be the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me? The proud have digged pits for me, which is not according to thy law. All thy commandments are faithfulness. They persecute me wrongfully: help thou me. They had almost consumed me upon the earth; but as for me, I forsook not thy precepts. Quicken me according to thy loving-kindness, and I will keep the testimony of thy mouth. LAMED. For ever, O Jehovah, thy word is settled in the heavens. Thy faithfulness is from generation to generation: thou hast established the earth, and it standeth. By thine ordinances they stand this day; for all things are thy servants. Unless thy law had been my delight, I should then have perished in mine affliction. I will never forget thy precepts; for by them thou hast quickened me. I am thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts. The wicked have awaited me to destroy me; but I attend unto thy testimonies. I have seen an end of all perfection: thy commandment is exceeding broad. MEM. Oh how I love thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thy commandments make me wiser than mine enemies; for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers; for thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the aged, because I have observed thy precepts. I have refrained my feet from every evil path, that I might keep thy word. I have not departed from thy judgments; for it is thou that hast taught me. How sweet are thy words unto my taste! more than honey to my mouth! From thy precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false path. NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments. I am afflicted very much; O Jehovah, quicken me according to thy word. Accept, I beseech thee, Jehovah, the voluntary-offerings of my mouth, and teach me thy judgments. My life is continually in my hand; but I do not forget thy law. The wicked have laid a snare for me; but I have not wandered from thy precepts. Thy testimonies have I taken as a heritage for ever; for they are the rejoicing of my heart. I have inclined my heart to perform thy statutes for ever, unto the end. SAMECH. The double-minded have I hated; but thy law do I love. Thou art my hiding-place and my shield: I hope in thy word. Depart from me, ye evil-doers; and I will observe the commandments of my God. Uphold me according to thy word, that I may live; and let me not be ashamed of my hope. Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe; and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually. Thou hast set at nought all them that wander from thy statutes; for their deceit is falsehood. Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross; therefore I love thy testimonies. My flesh shuddereth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments. AIN. I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors. Be surety for thy servant for good; let not the proud oppress me. Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness. Deal with thy servant according to thy loving-kindness, and teach me thy statutes. I am thy servant; give me understanding that I may know thy testimonies. It is time for Jehovah to work: they have made void thy law. Therefore I love thy commandments above gold, yea, above fine gold. Therefore I regard all thy precepts concerning all things to be right: I hate every false path. PE. Thy testimonies are wonderful; therefore doth my soul observe them. The entrance of thy words giveth light, giving understanding unto the simple. I opened my mouth wide and panted; for I longed for thy commandments. Turn unto me, and be gracious unto me, as thou art wont to do unto those that love thy name. Establish my steps in thy word; and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. Deliver me from the oppression of man; and I will keep thy precepts. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant, and teach me thy statutes. Mine eyes run down with streams of water, because they keep not thy law. TZADE. Righteous art thou, Jehovah, and upright are thy judgments. Thou hast commanded thy testimonies in righteousness and exceeding faithfulness. My zeal destroyeth me, because mine oppressors have forgotten thy words. Thy word is exceeding pure, and thy servant loveth it. I am little and despised: thy precepts have I not forgotten. Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is truth. Trouble and anguish have taken hold upon me: thy commandments are my delights. The righteousness of thy testimonies is for ever: give me understanding, and I shall live. KOPH. I have called with my whole heart; answer me, O Jehovah: I will observe thy statutes. I call upon thee; save me, and I will keep thy testimonies. I anticipate the morning-dawn and I cry: I hope in thy word. Mine eyes anticipate the night-watches, that I may meditate in thy word.

Luke 2:19

But Mary kept all these things in her mind, pondering them in her heart.

Acts 8:27-35

And he rose up and went. And lo, an Ethiopian, a eunuch, a man in power under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who was over all her treasure, who had come to worship at Jerusalem, was returning and sitting in his chariot: and he was reading the prophet Esaias. And the Spirit said to Philip, Approach and join this chariot.read more.
And Philip, running up, heard him reading the prophet Esaias, and said, Dost thou then know what thou art reading of? And he said, How should I then be able unless some one guide me? And he begged Philip to come up and sit with him. And the passage of the scripture which he read was this: He was led as a sheep to slaughter, and as a lamb is dumb in presence of him that shears him, thus he opens not his mouth. In his humiliation his judgment has been taken away, and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. And the eunuch answering Philip said, I pray thee, concerning whom does the prophet say this? of himself or of some other? And Philip, opening his mouth and beginning from that scripture, announced the glad tidings of Jesus to him.

Psalm 119:55

I have remembered thy name, O Jehovah, in the night, and have kept thy law.
