Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31
8:1 Does not wisdom call, and does not understanding raise her voice?

8:2 On the heights, beside the way, at the crossroads she takes her stand;

8:3 beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries out:

8:4 "To you, O people, I call, and my cry is to all that live.

8:22 The LORD created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of long
ago.

8:23 Ages ago I was set up, at the first, before the beginning of the earth.

8:24 When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs
abounding with water.

8:25 Before the mountains had been shaped, before the hills, I was brought forth--

8:26 when he had not yet made earth and fields, or the world's first bits of soil.

8:27 When he established the heavens, I was there, when he drew a circle on the face
of the deep,

8:28 when he made firm the skies above, when he established the fountains of the
deep,

8:29 when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his
command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth,

8:30 then I was beside him, like a master worker; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing
before him always,

8:31 rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the human race.

Psalm 8
8:1 O LORD, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set
your glory above the heavens.

8:2 Out of the mouths of babes and infants you have founded a bulwark because of
your foes, to silence the enemy and the avenger.

8:3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars
that you have established;

8:4 what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for
them?

8:5 Yet you have made them a little lower than God, and crowned them with glory and
honor.

8:6 You have given them dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things
under their feet,

8:7 all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,

8:8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of
the seas.

8:9 O LORD, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Romans 5:1-5
5:1 Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our
Lord Jesus Christ,

5:2 through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we
boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.

5:3 And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering
produces endurance,

5:4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,

5:5 and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our
hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

John 16:12-15
16:12 "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.

16:13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not
speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the
things that are to come.

16:14 He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

16:15 All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is
mine and declare it to you.
