Isaiah 9:7

7Of the increase of his government and of peace
i  there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
j  with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
k  The zeal of the  Lord of hosts will do this.

Isaiah 53:2-3

2For he grew up before him like a young plant,
l  and like a root out of dry ground;
m  he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
3 n  He was despised and rejected
Or forsaken
by men;
a man of sorrows
Or pains; also verse 4
and acquainted with
Or  and knowing
grief;
Or sickness; also verse 4

and as one from whom men hide their faces
Or  as one who hides his face from us

he was despised, and t  we esteemed him not.

Isaiah 53:12

12 u  Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many
Or  with the great

w  and he shall divide the spoil with the strong
Or  with the numerous

because he poured out his soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
y  yet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors.

Daniel 2:34-35

34As you looked, a stone was cut out z  by no human hand, and it struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and aa  broke them in pieces. 35Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, all together were broken in pieces, and became ab  like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that ac  not a trace of them could be found. But the stone that struck the image became ad  a great mountain ae  and filled the whole earth.

Daniel 2:44-45

44And in the days of those kings af  the God of heaven will set up ag  a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. ah  It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and ai  it shall stand forever, 45just as aj  you saw that ak  a stone was cut from a mountain by no human hand, and that al  it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold. A am  great God has made known to the king what shall be after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.”

Matthew 13:31-33

The Mustard Seed and the Leaven

31He put another parable before them, saying, an  “The kingdom of heaven is like ao  a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. 32It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

33He told them another parable. ap  “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in aq  three measures of flour, till it was ar  all leavened.”
