33:14 The days are surely
coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I made to
the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to
spring up for David; and he shall execute justice and
righteousness in the land.
In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in
safety. And this is the name by which it will be called: "The
LORD is our righteousness."
25:1 To you, O LORD, I lift
up my soul.
O my God, in you I trust; do not let me be put to shame; do not
let my enemies exult over me.
Do not let those who wait for you be put to shame; let them be

salvation; for you I wait all day long.
Be mindful of your mercy, O LORD, and of your steadfast love, for
they have been from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
according to your steadfast love remember me, for your goodness'
sake, O LORD!

3:9 How can we thank God

God because of you?
Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you face to

And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one
another and for all, just as we abound in love for you.
And may he so strengthen your hearts in holiness that you may be
blameless before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord
Jesus with all his saints.
21:25 "There will be
signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on the earth
distress among nations confused by the roaring of the sea and the
People will faint from fear and foreboding of what is coming upon
the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
Then they will see 'the Son of Man coming in a cloud' with power
and great glory.
Now when these things begin to take place, stand up and raise your
heads, because your redemption is drawing near."
Then he told them a parable: "Look at the fig tree and all
as soon as they sprout leaves you can see for yourselves and know
that summer is already near.
So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the
kingdom of God is near.
Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all
things have taken place.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
"Be on guard so that your hearts are not weighed down with
dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life, and that

like a trap. For it will come upon all who live on the face of the

the Son of Man."
