[17] But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children,  [18] to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.  [19] The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all. (Psalm 103:17-19 ESV)

[7] Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?  [8] If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!  [9] If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,  [10] even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.  [11] If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,”  [12] even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.  [13] For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.  [14] I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.  [15] My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.  [16] Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.  [17] How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!  [18] If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you. (Psalm 139:7-18 ESV) shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127:3-5 ESV)

[7] Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?  [8] If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!  [9] If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,  [10] even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.  [11] If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,”  [12] even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.  [13] For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.  [14] I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.  [15] My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.  [16] Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.  [17] How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!  [18] If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you. (Psalm 139:7-18 ESV)

[6] And blessed is the one who is not offended by me.” (Matthew 11:1-6 ESV)
