John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.
1 Corinthians 15:42
So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable;
The wise inherit honor, but fools get only shame.
The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and the one who is wise saves lives.
After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.
