Psalm 1:1-3

Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits 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 whatsoever he does shall prosper.

[To the Chief Musician upon gittith. A Psalm of David.] O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! who have set your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and infants have you ordained strength because of your enemies, that you might still the enemy and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;read more.
What is man, that you are mindful of him? and the son of man, that you visit him? For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and have crowned him with glory and honor. You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!

Psalm 104:1-34

Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with honor and majesty. Who covers yourself with light as with a garment: who stretches out the heavens like a curtain: Who lays the beams of his chambers in 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 removed forever. You covered it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains. At your rebuke they fled; at the voice of your thunder they hastened away. They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which you have founded for them. You have set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth. He sends the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills. They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild donkeys quench their thirst. By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches. He waters the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your works. He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that makes glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengthens man's heart. The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted; Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house. The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the badgers. He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knows its going down. You make darkness, and it is night: in which all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their food from God. The sun arises, they gather themselves together, and lay themselves down in their dens. Man goes forth unto his work and to his labor until the evening. O LORD, how manifold are your works! in wisdom have you made them all: the earth is full of your riches. So is this great and wide sea, which teems with things innumerable, both small and great. There go the ships: there is that leviathan, which you have made to play therein. These all wait upon you; that you may give them their food in due season. That which you give them they gather: you open your hand, they are filled with good. You hide your face, they are troubled: you take away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. You send forth your Spirit, they are created: and you renew the face of the earth. The glory of the LORD shall endure forever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works. He looks on the earth, and it trembles: he touches the hills, 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 you not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take you thought for clothing? 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 clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you 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 you better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If you then be not able to do that thing which is least, why are you anxious concerning 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 your precepts. Let those that fear you turn unto me, and those that have known your testimonies. Let my heart be sound in your statutes; that I be not ashamed.read more.
[Kaph] My soul faints for your salvation: but I hope in your word. My eyes fail for your word, saying, When will you comfort me? For I am become like a wineskin in the smoke; yet do I not forget your statutes. How many are the days of your servant? when will you execute judgment on them that persecute me? The proud have dug pits for me, which is not after your law. All your commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help me. They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not your precepts. Revive me according to your lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of your mouth. [Lamed] Forever, O LORD, your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness is unto all generations: you have established the earth, and it abides. They continue this day according to your ordinances: for all are your servants. Unless your law had been my delights, I should then have perished in my affliction. I will never forget your precepts: for with them you have revived me. I am yours, save me; for I have sought your precepts. The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider your testimonies. I have seen a limit to all perfection: but your commandment is exceedingly broad. [Mem] O how love I your law! it is my meditation all the day. You through your commandments have made me wiser than my enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep your precepts. I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep your word. I have not departed from your judgments: for you have taught me. How sweet are your words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through your precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. [Nun] Your 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 your righteous judgments. I am afflicted very much: revive me, O LORD, according unto your word. Accept, I beseech you, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me your judgments. My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget your law. The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I strayed not from your precepts. Your testimonies have I taken as a heritage forever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart. I have inclined my heart to perform your statutes always, even unto the end. [Samek] I hate vain thoughts: but your law do I love. You are my hiding place and my shield: I hope in your word. Depart from me, you evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God. Uphold me according unto your word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope. Hold me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto your statutes continually. You have trodden down all them that stray from your statutes: for their deceit is falsehood. You put away all the wicked of the earth like dross: therefore I love your testimonies. My flesh trembles for fear of you; and I am afraid of your judgments. [Ayin] I have done what is right and just: leave me not to my oppressors. Be surety for your servant for good: let not the proud oppress me. My eyes fail for your salvation, and for the word of your righteousness. Deal with your servant according unto your mercy, and teach me your statutes. I am your servant; give me understanding, that I may know your testimonies. It is time for you, LORD, to work: for they have made void your law. Therefore I love your commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold. Therefore I esteem all your precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. [Pe] Your testimonies are wonderful: therefore does my soul keep them. The entrance of your words gives light; it gives understanding unto the simple. I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for your commandments. Look upon me, and be merciful unto me, as you do unto those that love your name. Order my steps in your word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep your precepts. Make your face to shine upon your servant; and teach me your statutes. Rivers of waters run down my eyes, because they keep not your law. [Tsadde] Righteous are you, O LORD, and upright are your judgments. Your testimonies that you have commanded are righteous and very faithful. My zeal has consumed me, because my enemies have forgotten your words. Your word is very pure: therefore your servant loves it. I am small and despised: yet do I not forget your precepts. Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and your law is the truth. Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet your commandments are my delights. The righteousness of your testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live. I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I will keep your statutes. I cried unto you; save me, and I shall keep your testimonies. I rose before the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in your word. My eyes awake before the night watches, that I might meditate in your word.

Luke 2:19

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

Acts 8:27-35

And 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 read Isaiah the prophet. Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join yourself to this chariot.read more.
And Philip ran to him, and heard him read the prophet Isaiah, and said, Do you understand what you read? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would 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 justice was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. And the eunuch asked Philip, and said, I pray you, of whom speaks the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

Psalm 119:55

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