If a man sin against the Lord, who shall intreat for him? – 1 Sam 2:25

If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.—Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; to declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

He is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea, rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Thou God seest me. – Gen 16:13

O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether … Such knowledge is too wonderful for me: it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.—The ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings.—God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.—The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.

Jesus … knew all men, and needed not that any should testify of man; for he knew what was in man.—Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee.

The spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. – Rom 8:15

Jesus … lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, … Holy Father, … O righteous Father.—He said, Abba, Father.—Because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.—For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints and of the household of God.

Doubtless thou art our father, … thou, O Lord, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.

I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, and am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father.

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children.

The things which are. – Rev 1:19

Now we see through a glass, darkly.—Now we see not yet all things put under him.

We have … a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.—Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; how that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.—The Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.

Little children, it is the last time.—The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

The measure of faith. – Rom 12:3

O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?—Great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt.

Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord … According to your faith be it unto you.

Lord, increase our faith.—Building up yourselves on your most holy faith.—Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith.—He which stablisheth us with you in Christ, … is God.—The God of all grace … after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

We … that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.—Let us not … judge one another … but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

“’When will I arise?’ and the night stretches on.”

[Job 7:4 NET]

“Watchman, what is left of the night?” The watchman replies, “Morning is coming.”

For just a little longer and he who is coming will arrive and not delay.—“[He] is like the light of morning when the sun comes up, a morning in which there are no clouds.”

“There are many dwelling places in my Father’s house. Otherwise, I would have told you, because I am going away to make ready a place for you. And if I go and make ready a place for you, I will come again and take you to be with me, so that where I am you may be too. Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage. You heard me say to you, ’I am going away and I am coming back to you.’”

“May all your enemies perish like this, O Lord! But may those who love you shine like the rising sun at its brightest!”—For you all are sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of the darkness.

There will be no night there.

They are without fault before the throne of God. – Rev 14:5

The iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.—Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger forever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

He hath made us accepted in the beloved.—To present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight.

Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
