Job 26:1-14
1. Then Job answered:
2. How you have helped the powerless and delivered the arm that is weak!
3. How you have counseled the unwise and thoroughly explained [the path to] success!
4. Who did you speak these words to? Whose breath came out of your [mouth]?
5. The departed spirits tremble beneath the waters and [all] that inhabit them.
6. Sheol is naked before God, and Abaddon has no covering.
7. He stretches the northern [skies] over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing.
8. He enfolds the waters in His clouds, yet the clouds do not burst beneath their weight.
9. He obscures the view of [His] throne, spreading His cloud over it.
10. He laid out the horizon on the surface of the waters at the boundary between light and darkness.
11. The pillars [that hold up] the sky tremble, astounded at His rebuke.
12. By His power He stirred the sea, and by His understanding He crushed Rahab.
13. By His breath the heavens gained their beauty; His hand pierced the fleeing serpent.
14. These are but the fringes of His ways; how faint is the word we hear of Him! Who can understand His mighty thunder?

Psalms 96:11-13
11. Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice; let the sea and all that fills it resound.
12. Let the fields and everything in them exult. Then all the trees of the forest will shout for joy
13. before the LORD, for He is coming-- for He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness and the peoples with His faithfulness.

Proverbs 23:10-12
10. Don't move an ancient property line, and don't encroach on the fields of the fatherless,
11. for their Redeemer is strong, and He will take up their case against you.
12. Apply yourself to instruction and listen to words of knowledge.

Romans 15:25-33
25. Now, however, I am traveling to Jerusalem to serve the saints;
26. for Macedonia and Achaia were pleased to make a contribution to the poor among the saints in Jerusalem.
27. Yes, they were pleased, and they are indebted to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual benefits, then they are obligated to minister to Jews in material needs.
28. So when I have finished this and safely delivered the funds to them, I will go by way of you to Spain.
29. But I know that when I come to you, I will come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ.
30. Now I implore you, brothers, through the Lord Jesus Christ and through the love of the Spirit, to agonize together with me in your prayers to God on my behalf:
31. that I may be rescued from the unbelievers in Judea, that my service for Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints,
32. and that, by God's will, I may come to you with joy and be refreshed together with you.
33. The God of peace be with all of you. Amen.
