Psalm 130

1 Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O LORD;
2 LORD, hear my voice! Let Thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

3 If Thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities,
O LORD, who shall stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with Thee,
that Thou mayest be feared.

5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait,
and in His word do I hope. 
6 My soul waiteth for the LORD more than they that watch for the morning--
I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
7 Let Israel hope in the LORD, for with the LORD there is mercy, and with Him is plenteous redemption.
8 And He shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

Mark 13:14-23

14 "But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not be"

(let him that readeth understand),

"then let them that be in Judea flee to the mountains. 15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein to take any thing out of his house. 16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again to take up his garment. 17 But woe to them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days! 18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. 19 For in those days shall be affliction such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, neither shall be. 20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved; but for the elect's sake, whom He hath chosen, He hath shortened the days. 21 And then if any man shall say to you, `Lo, here is Christ!' or, `Lo, He is there!' believe him not; 22 for false christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23 But take ye heed; behold, I have foretold you all things.

Galatians 3:1-9 

1 O foolish Galatians! Who hath bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been clearly set forth, crucified among you? 2 This only would I learn of you: Did ye receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are ye so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? 4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain -- if it be yet in vain? 5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit and worketh miracles among you, doeth He it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 6 Even as Abraham "believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness." 

7 Know ye therefore that those who are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached beforehand the Gospel unto Abraham, saying, "In thee shall all nations be blessed." 9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

1 Kings 17:8-24

8 And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, 9 "Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee." 10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering sticks; and he called to her and said, "Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink." 11 And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her and said, "Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand." 12 And she said, "As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but a handful of meal in a barrel and a little oil in a cruse. And behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it and die." 13 And Elijah said unto her, "Fear not; go and do as thou hast said, but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and afterward make for thee and for thy son. 14 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel: `The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.'" 15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah, and she and he and her house ate for many days. 16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD which He spoke by Elijah.

17 And it came to pass after these things that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore that there was no breath left in him. 18 And she said unto Elijah, "What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? Art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance and to slay my son?" 19 And he said unto her, "Give me thy son." And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed. 20 And he cried unto the LORD and said, "O LORD my God, hast Thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn by slaying her son?" 21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD and said, "O LORD my God, I pray Thee, let this child's soul come into him again!" 22 And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. 23 And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother; and Elijah said, "See, thy son liveth." 24 And the woman said to Elijah, "Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth."

Words of Wisdom -  Ecclesiasticus 19:12

As an arrow that sticketh in a man's thigh, 
so is a word within a fool's belly.
