3. Remember all thine oblations, and accept thy burnt-offering; Selah.
4. Grant thee according to thy heart, and fulfil all thy counsels.
5. We will triumph in thy salvation, and in the name of our God will we set up our banners. Jehovah fulfil all thy petitions!

3. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the tablet of thy heart.
4. Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister, and call intelligence [thy] kinswoman:
5. that they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger who flattereth with her words.

Matthew 24:29-51
29. But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun shall be darkened, and the moon not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.
30. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the land lament, and they shall see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from [the one] extremity of [the] heavens to [the other] extremity of them.
32. But learn the parable from the fig-tree: When already its branch becomes tender and produces leaves, ye know that the summer is near.
33. Thus also *ye*, when ye see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors.
34. Verily I say to you, This generation will not have passed away until all these things shall have taken place.
35. The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words shall in no wise pass away.
36. But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of the heavens, but [my] Father alone.
37. But as the days of Noe, so also shall be the coming of the Son of man.
38. For as they were in the days which were before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day on which Noe entered into the ark,
39. and they knew not till the flood came and took all away; thus also shall be the coming of the Son of man.
40. Then two shall be in the field, one is taken and one is left;
41. two [women] grinding at the mill, one is taken and one is left.
42. Watch therefore, for ye know not in what hour your Lord comes.
43. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched and not have suffered his house to be dug through [into].
44. Wherefore *ye* also, be ye ready, for in that hour that ye think not the Son of man comes.
45. Who then is the faithful and prudent bondman whom his lord has set over his household, to give them food in season?
46. Blessed is that bondman whom his lord on coming shall find doing thus.
47. Verily I say unto you, that he will set him over all his substance.
48. But if that evil bondman should say in his heart, My lord delays to come,
49. and begin to beat his fellow-bondmen, and eat and drink with the drunken;
50. the lord of that bondman shall come in a day when he does not expect it, and in an hour he knows not of,
51. and shall cut him in two and appoint his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
