2 Corinthians 10:17
But, "Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord."
May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, "The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness,
maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation."
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
I will glory in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
