Psalm 121

1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help!
2 My help cometh from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not permit thy foot to be moved; He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD is thy keeper;
the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil;
He shall preserve thy soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in
from this time forth, and even for evermore.

John 14:27-31

27 "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give unto you, not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, `I go away and come again unto you.' If ye loved Me, ye would rejoice because I said, `I go unto the Father,' for My Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

30 "Hereafter I will not talk much with you, for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in Me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father, as the Father gave Me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

Revelation 3:1-6

1 "And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write: `These things saith He that hath the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: I know thy works, and that thou hast a name that thou livest, but thou art dead. 2 Be watchful and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found thy works perfect before God. 3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard; and hold fast and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. 4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. 6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches!'

Zechariah 1:1-6, 12-17

1 In the eighth month in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying, 2 "The LORD hath been sorely displeased with your fathers. 3 Therefore say thou unto them: Thus saith the LORD of hosts: `Turn ye unto  Me,' saith the LORD of hosts, `and I will turn unto you,' saith the LORD of hosts. 4 Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying: Thus saith the LORD of hosts: `Turn ye now from your evil ways and from your evil doings.' But they did not hear, nor hearken unto Me, saith the LORD. 5 Your fathers, where are they? And the prophets, do they live for ever? 6 But My words and My statutes, which I commanded My servants the prophets, did they not overtake your fathers? And they returned and said,`As the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us, according to our ways and according to our doings, so hath He dealt with us.'"

12 Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, "O LORD of hosts, how long wilt Thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which Thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years?" 13 And the LORD answered the angel who talked with me, with good words and comforting words. 14 So the angel who communed with me said unto me, "Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts: `I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy. 15 And I am very sorely displeased with the heathen who are at ease; for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.' 16 Therefore thus saith the LORD: `I have returned to Jerusalem with mercies. My house shall be built in it,' saith the LORD of hosts, `and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.' 17 Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts: `My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.'" 

Zechariah 2:10-13

10 "Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee," saith the LORD. 11 "And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be My people; and I will dwell in the midst of thee. And thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee. 12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah as His portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again." 

13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD, for He is raised up out of His holy habitation. 

Words of Wisdom - Tobit 8:5

Then began Tobias to say,
"Blessed art Thou, O God of our fathers, 
and blessed is Thy holy and glorious name for ever. 
Let the heavens bless Thee, 
and all Thy creatures.
