If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels,
but have not love,
I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
The Lord Being with You
And Joseph’s master took him and put him into the prison,
the place where the king’s prisoners were confined,
and he was there in prison.
But the Lord was with Joseph
and showed him steadfast love
and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.
For he knows our frame;
he remembers that we are dust.
I give them eternal life,
and they will never perish,
and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all,
and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.
God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin,
so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
The Lord knows how
to rescue the godly from trials,
and to keep the unrighteous under punishment
until the Day of Judgment.
