You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—will be found to result in praise and glory and honor and the revelation of Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 1:3-7
Blessed are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion...they go from strength to strength; each one appears before God in Zion.
