Psalm 1:1-3

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the advice of [the] wicked; nor does he stand in [the] way of sinners; nor does he sit in [the] assembly of mockers. Instead, in the law of Yahweh [is] his delight, and on his law he meditates day and night. And so, he is like a tree planted by streams of water that gives its fruit in its season; its leaf also does not wither. Therefore all that he does prospers.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, [the] moon and [the] stars which you set in place--read more.
what [is] a human being that you think of him? and a child of humankind that you care for him? And you made him a little lower than heavenly beings, and [with] glory and [with] majesty you crowned him. You make him over the works of your hands; all [things] you have placed under his feet: sheep and cattle, all of them, and also [the] wild animals of [the] field, [the] birds of [the] sky and the fish of the sea, [everything] that passes along the paths of seas. Yahweh, our Lord, how majestic [is] your name in all of the earth!

Psalm 104:1-34

Bless Yahweh, O my soul. O Yahweh my God, you are very great. You clothe yourself [with] splendor and majesty, [you] who cover [yourself] with light as [with] a garment, who stretch out [the] heavens like a tent curtain, the one who sets beams in the waters [for] his upper chambers, who makes clouds his chariot, who rides on [the] wings of [the] wind,read more.
who makes his messengers [the] winds, his attendants a flame of fire. He established [the] earth on her foundations, [so that] it will not be moved forever and ever. You covered it with [the] deep as with a garment. [The] waters stood above [the] mountains. At your rebuke they fled; at the sound of your thunder they ran off. They ascended [the] mountains [and] drained though the valleys to [the] place that you established for them. You set a boundary that they may not cross over, [so that] they would not return to cover the earth. [You are] the one who sends forth springs into the valleys; they flow between [the] mountains. They give drink for every beast of [the] field. [The] wild donkeys {quench} their thirst. Along them the birds of the heavens abide. From among [the] branches they {sing}. [You are the one who] {waters} [the] mountains from his upper chambers. The earth is full with the fruit of your labors: [who] causes grass to grow for the cattle and herbs for the service of humankind, to bring forth food from the earth, and wine [that] makes glad [the] heart of man, so that [their] faces shine from oil, and bread [that] strengthens the heart of man. The trees of Yahweh drink their fill, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted, where birds make [their] nest. [The] stork [has] its home in [the] fir trees. The high mountains [are] for the wild goats; [the] cliffs [are] a refuge for the rock badgers. He made [the] moon for appointed times; [the] sun knows its [time for] setting. You make darkness, and it is night, when all [the] animals of the forest creep about. The young lions [are] roaring for the prey and seeking their food from God. [When] the sun rises, they gather together and lie down in their dens. Humankind goes out to its work, and to its labor until evening. How many are your works, O Yahweh; all of them you have done in wisdom. The earth is full of your creatures. This [is] the great and {wide} sea, in which [are] moving animals without number, living things small and great. There [the] ships sail. Leviathan [is there] that you formed to play with. They all wait for you to give [them] their food {at the proper time}. You give to them; they gather [it]. You open your hand, they are filled with [what is] good. You hide your face, they are terrified. 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] ground. May the glory of Yahweh endure forever. May Yahweh be glad in his works, the one who looks at the earth and it quakes, and touches the mountains and they smoke. I will sing to Yahweh throughout my life; I will sing praise to my God while {I remain alive}. May my meditation be pleasing to him. I will be glad in Yahweh.

Matthew 6:26-30

Consider the birds of the sky, that they do not sow or reap or gather [produce] into barns, and your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they [are]? And who among you, [by] being anxious, is able to add one hour to his life span? And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe the lilies of the field, how they grow: they do not toil or spin,read more.
but I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory was dressed like one of these. But if God dresses the grass of the field in this way, [although it] is [here] today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not [do so] much more [for] you, you of little faith?

Luke 12:24-27

Consider the ravens, that they neither sow nor reap; to them there is neither storeroom nor barn, and God feeds them. How much more are you worth than the birds? And which of you [by] being anxious is able to add an hour to his life span? If then you are not even able [to do] a very little thing, why are you anxious about the rest?read more.
Consider the lilies, how they grow: they do not toil or spin, but I say to you, not even Solomon in all his glory was dressed like one of these.

My soul languishes for your salvation; I hope in your word. My eyes long for your word, saying, "When will you comfort me?" For I have become like a wineskin in [the] smoke, [yet] I have not forgotten your statutes. How many [are] the days of your servant? When will you execute justice against those who persecute me? [The] arrogant have dug pits for me, which [is] not according to your law. All your commands [are] faithful. They persecute me deceitfully; help me! They have almost destroyed me on the earth, but I have not forsaken your precepts. According to your loyal love preserve me alive, so that I may heed the testimony from your mouth. Forever, O Yahweh, your word {is settled} in heaven. Your faithfulness [endures] {throughout all generations}. You have established [the] earth and it stands. By your ordinances they stand today, for all [are] your servants. Unless your law [had been] my delight, then I would have perished in my misery. I will not ever forget your precepts, for by them you revive me. I [am] yours. Save me, for I have sought your precepts. For me [the] wicked [lie in] wait to destroy me. I give attention to your testimonies. I have seen a limit to every perfection; your command [is] very broad. How I love your law! The whole day it [is] my meditation. Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, because they [are] ever with me. I have more insight than all my teachers, for your testimonies [are] my meditation. I understand more than [the] elders, for I keep your precepts. I have restrained my feet from every evil way, so that I may heed your word. I have not turned aside from your ordinances, for you have taught me. How smooth [are] your words to my palate, more than honey in my mouth. From your precepts I get understanding, therefore I hate every false way. Your word [is] a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I have sworn [an oath] and confirmed [it], to heed {your righteous ordinances}. I am very much afflicted; O Yahweh, revive me according to your word. Please accept the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Yahweh, and teach me your ordinances. My life [is] {in danger} continually, yet I do not forget your law. [The] wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I do not wander from your precepts. I have taken as my own your testimonies forever, for they [are] the joy of my heart. I have inclined my heart to do your statutes forever, to the end. I hate {the double-minded}, but I love your law. You [are] my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word. Turn aside from me, [you] evildoers, for I will keep the commands of my God. Sustain me according to your word, that I may live, and do not let me be ashamed of my hope. Uphold me, that I may be delivered, and have regard for your statutes continually. You reject all [who] stray from your statutes, for their deceit [is] a breach of faith. You remove 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. I have done justice and righteousness; do not leave me to my oppressors. Pledge good for your servant; do not let [the] arrogant oppress me. My eyes long for your salvation, and your righteous word. Deal with your servant according to your loyal love, and teach me your statutes. I [am] your servant; give me understanding, that I may know your statutes. [It is] time for Yahweh to act, [for] they have broken your law. Therefore I love your commands more than gold, even fine gold. Therefore all [your] precepts of everything I regard as right; I hate every false way. Your testimonies [are] miracles, therefore my soul keeps them. The unfolding of your words gives light, giving understanding to [the] simple. I open my mouth and pant, because I long for your commands. Turn to me and be gracious to me, as [is] proper for those who love your name. Direct my steps in your word, and do not let any iniquity gain power over me. Redeem me from [the] oppression of humankind, that I may heed your precepts. Shine your face on your servant, and teach me your statutes. Streams of water flow down [from] my eyes, because [people] do not heed your law. You [are] righteous, O Yahweh, and your ordinances [are] upright. You have ordained your testimonies [in] righteousness, and [in] exceeding faithfulness. My zeal consumes me, because my enemies have forgotten your words. Your word [is] very pure, and your servant loves it. I [am] small and despised, [yet] I do not forget your precepts. Your righteousness [is] an everlasting righteousness, and your law [is] truth. Trouble and anguish have found me; your commands delight me. The righteousness of your testimonies [is] forever; give me understanding that I may live. I call with [my] whole heart; answer me, O Yahweh. I will keep your statutes. I call to you. Save me, and I will heed your testimonies. I rise early in the dawn and cry for help; I hope in your word. My eyes anticipate [the] night watches, that [I may] meditate on your word.

Acts 8:27-35

And he got up [and] went, and behold, [there was] a man, an Ethiopian eunuch (a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was over all her treasury) who had come to worship in Jerusalem and was returning and sitting in his chariot, and reading aloud the prophet Isaiah. And the Spirit said to Philip, "Approach and join this chariot."read more.
So Philip ran up to [it] [and] heard him reading aloud Isaiah the prophet and said, "So then, do you understand what you are reading?" And he said, "So how could I, unless someone will guide me?" And he invited Philip to come up [and] sit with him. Now the passage of scripture that he was reading aloud was this: "He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, and like a lamb before its shearer [is] silent, so he did not open his mouth. In his humiliation justice was taken from him. Who can describe his {descendants}? For his life was taken away from the earth." And the eunuch answered [and] said to Philip, "I ask you, about whom does the prophet say this--about himself or about someone else?" So Philip opened his mouth and beginning from this scripture, proclaimed the good news to him [about] Jesus.
