12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
He brought out His people with joy,
His chosen ones with gladness.
The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
2 Peter 1:4
4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Honor the LORD with your wealth,
with the firstfruits of all your crops;
then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
and your vats will brim over with new wine.
