1 ¶ A psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,

3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

2nd Samuel chapter 7 verses 4 to 17
4 ¶  That night the word of the LORD came to Nathan, saying:
5  "Go and tell my servant David, ‘This is what the LORD says: Are you the one to build me a house to dwell in?
6  I have not dwelt in a house from the day I brought the Israelites up out of Egypt to this day. I have been moving from place to place with a tent as my dwelling.
7  Wherever I have moved with all the Israelites, did I ever say to any of their rulers whom I commanded to shepherd my people Israel, "Why have you not built me a house of cedar?"’
8  "Now then, tell my servant David, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty says: I took you from the pasture and from following the flock to be ruler over my people Israel.
9  I have been with you wherever you have gone, and I have cut off all your enemies from before you. Now I will make your name great, like the names of the greatest men of the earth.
10  And I will provide a place for my people Israel and will plant them so that they can have a home of their own and no longer be disturbed. Wicked people shall not oppress them any more, as they did at the beginning
11  and have done ever since the time I appointed leaders over my people Israel. I will also give you rest from all your enemies. "‘The LORD declares to you that the LORD himself will establish a house for you:
12  When your days are over and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, who will come from your own body, and I will establish his kingdom.
13  He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever.
14  I will be his father, and he shall be my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with the rod of men, with floggings inflicted by men.
15  But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you.
16  Your house and your kingdom shall endure for ever before me; your throne shall be established for ever.’"
17  Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation.

Jeremiah chapter 31 verses 31 to 334
31  "The time is coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
32  It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them," declares the LORD.
33  "This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after that time," declares the LORD. "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
34  No longer will a man teach his neighbour, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest," declares the LORD. "For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."

63  But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God."
64  "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied. "But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven."
65  Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, "He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses? Look, now you have heard the blasphemy.
66  What do you think?" "He is worthy of death," they answered.

8  For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
9  not by works, so that no-one can boast.

Acts chapter 26 verse 18
The Apostle Paul's testimony to King Agrippa  recounting his conversion to Christianity
13  About noon, O King, as I was on the road, I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, blazing around me and my companions.
14  We all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’
15  "Then I asked, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ "‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,’ the Lord replied.
16  ‘Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen of me and what I will show you.
17  I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them
18  to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’
