Psalms 52:1

The Steadfast Love of God Endures

To the choirmaster. A Maskil
Probably a musical or liturgical term
of David, when b  Doeg, the Edomite, came and told Saul, “David has come to the house of Ahimelech.”

1 Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man?
The steadfast love of God endures all the day.

Psalms 85:10-13

10 c  Steadfast love and faithfulness meet;
d  righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11Faithfulness springs up from the ground,
and righteousness looks down from the sky.
12Yes e  the  Lord will give what is good,
and our land f  will yield its increase.
13 g  Righteousness will go before him
and make his footsteps a way.

Matthew 5:44-48

44But I say to you h  Love your enemies and i  pray for those who persecute you, 45 j  so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and k  sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 l  For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47And if you greet only your brothers
Or  brothers and sisters. The plural Greek word adelphoi (translated “brothers”) refers to siblings in a family. In New Testament usage, depending on the context, adelphoi may refer either to brothers or to brothers and sisters
what more are you doing than others? Do not even n  the Gentiles do the same?
48 o  You therefore must be p  perfect q  as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Luke 6:36

36 r  Be merciful, even as s  your Father is merciful.

2 Corinthians 3:18

18And we all, with unveiled face t  beholding u  the glory of the Lord
Or reflecting the glory of the Lord
w  are being transformed into the same image x  from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15

14For the love of Christ y  controls us, because we have concluded this: that z  one has died for all, therefore all have died; 15and he died for all aa  that those who live might no longer live for themselves but ab  for him who for their sake died and was raised.

2 Corinthians 8:9

9For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ac  though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.
