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.
Ephesians 1:9, 11-14
9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself,
11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.
13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
