Psalm 1:1-3

Blessed is the man that does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.

O LORD our Lord, how great is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy praise above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou might still the enemy and the avenger. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;read more.
what is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou dost visit him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels and hast crowned him with glory and beauty. Thou hast made him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: all sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, and whatever passes through the paths of the seas. O LORD our Lord, how great is thy name in all the earth!

Psalm 104:1-34

Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty, who dost cover thyself with light as with a garment, who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain, who dost establish his chambers between the waters, who makes the clouds his chariot, who walks upon the wings of the wind,read more.
who makes his angels spirits, his ministers a flaming fire, who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be moved by any age. Thou didst cover it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. The mountains were exposed; they descended through the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them. Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over, that they not turn again to cover the earth. Thou art he who sends the springs into the valleys, which run among the mountains. They give drink to every beast of the field; the wild asses quench their thirst. Next to them the fowls of the heavens have their habitation; they sing among the leaves. He waters the mountains from his chambers; the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. He causes the hay to grow for the cattle and grass for the service of man, that he may bring forth bread out of the earth and wine that makes glad the heart of man, making his face to shine with oil and bread which sustains man's heart. The trees of the LORD are satisfied; the cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted, that the birds may make their nests there: the stork makes her house among the fir trees. The high mountains are a refuge for the wild goats, and the rocks for the conies. He appointed the moon for times and seasons; the sun knows his going down. Thou makest darkness, and it is night, wherein all the beasts of the forest move. The young lions roar after their prey and seek their food from God. The sun arises, they withdraw and lay themselves down in their dens. Man goes forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening. O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom thou hast made them all; the earth is full of thy riches. So is this great and wide sea, wherein are innumerable creeping things, both small and great beasts. There go the ships; there is that leviathan, whom thou didst make to play therein. These wait all upon thee, that thou may give them their food in due season. Thou givest unto them, they gather; thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good. Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled; thou takest away their spirit, they cease to exist and return to their dust. Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created; and thou renewest the face of the earth. Let the glory of the LORD endure for ever; let the LORD rejoice in his works. He looks on the earth, and it trembles: he touches the mountains, and they smoke. I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him shall be sweet; I will be glad in the LORD.

Matthew 6:26-30

Behold the fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin;read more.
and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Therefore, if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Luke 12:24-27

Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then are not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?read more.
Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Psalm 119:78-148

Let the proud be ashamed, for they dealt perversely with me without a cause, but I will meditate in thy precepts. Let those that fear thee turn unto me and those that have known thy testimonies. Let my heart be perfect in thy statutes that I not be ashamed.read more.
CAPH. My soul faints with desire for thy salvation as I await thy word. Mine eyes fail for thy spoken word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me? For I am become like a wine skin in the smoke; yet I have not forgotten thy statutes. How many are the days of thy slave? When wilt thou execute judgment on those that persecute me? The proud have dug pits for me, but they do not proceed according to thy law. All thy commandments are of the same truth; they persecute me wrongfully; help me. They have almost consumed me upon earth, but I have not forsaken thy precepts. Cause me to live according to thy mercy, so I shall keep the testimony of thy mouth. LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in the heavens. Thy truth is from generation to generation; thou hast established the earth, and it perseveres. They persevere unto this day by thy ordinance; for they are all thy slaves. Unless thy law had been my delight, I should have perished in my affliction. I will never forget thy precepts; for with them thou hast caused me to live. I am thine, keep me; for I have sought thy precepts. The wicked have waited for me to destroy me, but I will consider thy testimonies. I have seen an end of all perfection, but thy commandment is exceeding broad. MEM. O how I love thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies, for they are eternal unto me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, for thy testimonies have been my meditation. I understand more than the elders because I keep thy precepts. I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word. I have not departed from thy judgments, for thou hast taught me. How sweet have been thy spoken words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I have obtained understanding; therefore I have hated every false way. NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my way. I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep the judgments of thy righteousness. I am afflicted very much; cause me to live, O LORD, according to thy word. Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments. My soul is continually in my hand; yet I do not forget thy law. The wicked have laid a snare for me; yet did not I err from thy precepts. I have taken thy testimonies as a heritage for ever; for they are the rejoicing of my heart. I have inclined my heart to perform thy statutes always, even unto the end. SAMECH. I hate vain thoughts; but I love thy law. Thou art my hiding place and my shield; I have waited for thy word. Depart from me, ye evildoers; for I will keep the commandments of my God. Uphold me according unto thy word, and I shall live; and let me not be ashamed of my hope. Hold me up, and I shall be saved, and I shall delight in thy statutes continually. Thou hast trodden down all those that err from thy statutes; for their deceit is falsehood. Thou dost cause all the wicked of the earth to come undone like dross; therefore I have loved thy testimonies. My flesh trembles for fear of thee, and I am afraid of thy judgments. AIN. I have complied with judgment and righteousness; do not leave me to my oppressors. Be surety for thy slave for good; do not let the proud do violence unto me. Mine eyes fail for thy saving health and for the spoken word of thy righteousness. Deal with thy slave according to thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes. I am thy slave; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies. It is time for thee, O LORD, to act; for they have dissipated thy law. Therefore I have loved thy commandments above gold, yea, above fine gold. Therefore I have esteemed all thy precepts concerning all things to be right and I have hated every false way. PE. Thy testimonies are wonderful; therefore does my soul keep them. The exposition of thy words gives light; it gives understanding unto the simple. I opened my mouth and panted; for I longed for thy commandments. Look thou upon me and be merciful unto me, as thou didst use to do unto those that love thy name. Order my steps with thy word; and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. Ransom me from the violence of men, and I will keep thy precepts. Make thy face to shine upon thy slave and teach me thy statutes. Rivers of waters ran down my eyes because they did not keep thy law. TZADDI. Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments. Thou hast commanded righteousness, which consists of thy testimonies and thy truth. My zeal has consumed me, because my enemies have forgotten thy words. Thy word is very pure; therefore thy slave loves it. I am small and despised; yet I have not forgotten thy precepts. Thy righteousness is eternal righteousness, and thy law is the truth. Trouble and anguish found me; but thy commandments were my delights. Thy testimonies are eternal righteousness; give me understanding, and I shall live. KOPH. I cried with my whole heart; answer me, O LORD, and I will keep thy statutes. I cried unto thee; save me, and I shall keep thy testimonies. I arose before the dawning of the morning and cried: I waited in thy word. My eyes anticipate the night watches that I might meditate in thy spoken word.

Luke 2:19

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

Acts 8:27-35

Then he arose and went, and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure and had come to Jerusalem to worship, was returning and sitting in his chariot reading Isaiah the prophet. Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near and join thyself to this chariot.read more.
And Philip ran there to him and heard him read the prophet Isaiah and said, Dost thou understand what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except someone should guide me? And he besought Philip to come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter, and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth; in his humiliation his judgment was taken away, and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. And the eunuch answered Philip and said, I pray thee, of whom does the prophet speak this? of himself or of some other? Then Philip opened his mouth and began at the same scripture and preached unto him the gospel of Jesus.

Psalm 119:55

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