Jeremiah 20: 10- 13

20:10 For I heard the insults of many, and terror all around: ‘Persecute him!’ and, ‘Let us persecute him!’ from all the men who had been at peace with me and who had kept watch by my side. ‘If only there were some way that he might be deceived, and we might prevail against him and obtain vengeance from him!’
20:11 But the Lord is with me, like a strong warrior. For this reason, those who persecute me will fall, and they will be ineffective. They will be greatly confounded. For they have not understood the everlasting disgrace that will never be wiped away.
20:12 And you, O Lord of hosts, the Tester of the just, who sees the temperament and the heart: I beg you to let me see your vengeance upon them. For I have revealed my case to you.
20:13 Sing to the Lord! Praise the Lord! For he has freed the soul of the poor from the hand of the wicked.

Romans 5: 12- 15

5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into this world, and through sin, death; so also death was transferred to all men, to all who have sinned.
5:13 For even before the law, sin was in the world, but sin was not imputed while the law did not exist.
5:14 Yet death reigned from Adam until Moses, even in those who have not sinned, in the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a figure of him who was to come.
5:15 But the gift is not entirely like the offense. For though by the offense of one, many died, yet much more so, by the grace of one man, Jesus Christ, has the grace and gift of God abounded to many.







Matthew 10: 26- 33

10:26 Therefore, do not fear them. For nothing is covered that shall not be revealed, nor hidden that shall not be known.
10:27 What I tell you in darkness, speak in the light. And what you hear whispered in the ear, preach above the rooftops.
10:28 And do not be afraid of those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. But instead fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Hell.
10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for one small coin? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father.
10:30 For even the hairs of your head have all been numbered.
10:31 Therefore, do not be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows.
10:32 Therefore, everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father, who is in heaven.
