Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,…
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
The Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation,
For the Lord spake thus to me
with a strong hand. . . .
— Isaiah 8:11a
Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together,
let not man put asunder.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
