Deuteronomy 7:1-26
1. When Jehovah thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and shall cast out many nations from before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou,
2. and when Jehovah thy God shall give them up before thee and thou shalt smite them, then shalt thou utterly destroy them: thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them.
3. And thou shalt make no marriages with them: thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor take his daughter for thy son;
4. for he will turn away thy son from following me, and they will serve other gods, and the anger of Jehovah will be kindled against you, and he will destroy thee quickly.
5. But thus shall ye deal with them: ye shall break down their altars, and shatter their statues, and hew down their Asherahs, and burn their graven images with fire.
6. For a holy people art thou unto Jehovah thy God: Jehovah thy God hath chosen thee to be unto him a people for a possession, above all the peoples that are upon the face of the earth.
7. Not because ye were more in number than all the peoples, hath Jehovah been attached to you and chosen you, for ye are the fewest of all the peoples;
8. but because Jehovah loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath Jehovah brought you out with a powerful hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
9. And thou shalt know that Jehovah thy God, he is God, the faithful God, who keepeth covenant and mercy to a thousand generations with them that love him and keep his commandments;
10. and repayeth them that hate him [each] to his face, to cause them to perish: he delayeth not with him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.
11. And thou shalt keep the commandment, and the statutes, and the ordinances, which I command thee this day, to do them.
12. And it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these ordinances, and keep and do them, that Jehovah thy God will keep with thee the covenant and the mercy which he swore unto thy fathers;
13. and he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee, and will bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy ground, thy corn and thy new wine, and thine oil, the offspring of thy kine, and the increase of thy sheep, in the land which he swore unto thy fathers to give thee.
14. Thou shalt be blessed above all the peoples; there shall not be male or female barren with thee, or with thy cattle;
15. and Jehovah will take away from thee all sickness, and none of the evil infirmities of Egypt, which thou knowest, will he put upon thee; but he will lay them upon all them that hate thee.
16. And thou shalt consume all the peoples that Jehovah thy God will give up unto thee; thine eye shall not spare them, and thou shalt not serve their gods; for that would be a snare unto thee.
17. If thou shouldest say in thy heart, These nations are greater than I; how can I dispossess them?
18. fear them not; remember well what Jehovah thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all the Egyptians;
19. the great trials which thine eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the powerful hand, and the stretched-out arm, whereby Jehovah thy God brought thee out: so will Jehovah thy God do unto all the peoples whom thou fearest.
20. Moreover, Jehovah thy God will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, and they that hide themselves from thee, are destroyed.
21. Thou shalt not be afraid of them; for Jehovah thy God is in thy midst, a God great and terrible.
22. And Jehovah thy God will cast out those nations from before thee by little and little; thou shalt not be able to make an end of them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee.
23. But Jehovah thy God will give them up before thee, and will confound them with great consternation, until they are destroyed.
24. And he will give their kings into thy hand, and thou shalt put out their name from under the heavens; no man shall stand before thee, until thou hast destroyed them.
25. The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire; thou shalt not covet the silver and gold [that is] on them and take it unto thee, lest thou be ensnared therein; for it is an abomination to Jehovah thy God.
26. And thou shalt not bring an abomination into thy house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.

Deuteronomy 8:1-20
1. Every commandment which I command thee this day shall ye take heed to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and enter in and possess the land which Jehovah swore unto your fathers.
2. And thou shalt remember all the way which Jehovah thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thy heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments or not.
3. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with the manna, which thou hadst not known, and which thy fathers knew not; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread alone, but by everything that goeth out of the mouth of Jehovah doth man live.
4. Thy clothing grew not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.
5. And know in thy heart that, as a man chasteneth his son, so Jehovah thy God chasteneth thee;
6. and thou shalt keep the commandments of Jehovah thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
7. For Jehovah thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of water-brooks, of springs, and of deep waters, that gush forth in the valleys and hills;
8. a land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig-trees, and pomegranates; a land of olive-trees and honey;
9. a land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, where thou shalt lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose mountains thou wilt dig copper.
10. And thou shalt eat and be filled, and shalt bless Jehovah thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.
11. Beware that thou forget not Jehovah thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his ordinances, and his statutes, which I command thee this day;
12. lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built and inhabited fine houses,
13. and thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied,
14. then thy heart be lifted up, and thou forget Jehovah thy God, who brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage;
15. who led thee through the great and terrible wilderness, [a wilderness of] fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there is no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
16. who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;
17. and thou say in thy heart, My power and the might of my hand has procured me this wealth.
18. But thou shalt remember Jehovah thy God, that it is he who giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he swore unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
19. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget Jehovah thy God, and go after other gods, and serve them, and bow down to them, I testify against you this day that ye shall utterly perish.
20. As the nations which Jehovah is causing to perish before you, so shall ye perish; because ye would not hearken unto the voice of Jehovah your God.

Psalms 37:5-11
5. Commit thy way unto Jehovah, and rely upon him: he will bring [it] to pass;
6. and he will bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7. Rest in Jehovah, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him that prospereth in his way, because of the man that bringeth mischievous devices to pass.
8. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; fret not thyself: it [would be] only to do evil.
9. For evil-doers shall be cut off; but those that wait on Jehovah, they shall possess the land.
10. For yet a little while, and the wicked is not; and thou considerest his place, but he is not.
11. But the meek shall possess the land, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of prosperity.

Proverbs 12:9-10
9. Better is he that is lightly esteemed, and hath a servant, than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.
10. A righteous man is concerned for the life of his beast; but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.

Luke 1:39-56
39. And Mary, rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah,
40. and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elizabeth.
41. And it came to pass, as Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with [the] Holy Spirit,
42. and cried out with a loud voice and said, Blessed [art] *thou* amongst women, and blessed the fruit of thy womb.
43. And whence [is] this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
44. For behold, as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the babe leaped with joy in my womb.
45. And blessed [is] she that has believed, for there shall be a fulfilment of the things spoken to her from [the] Lord.
46. And Mary said, My soul magnifies the Lord,
47. and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour.
48. For he has looked upon the low estate of his bondmaid; for behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
49. For the Mighty One has done to me great things, and holy [is] his name;
50. and his mercy [is] to generations and generations to them that fear him.
51. He has wrought strength with his arm; he has scattered haughty [ones] in the thought of their heart.
52. He has put down rulers from thrones, and exalted the lowly.
53. He has filled the hungry with good things, and sent away the rich empty.
54. He has helped Israel his servant, in order to remember mercy,
55. (as he spoke to our fathers,) to Abraham and to his seed for ever.
56. And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her house.
