It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not;
they are new every morning, great is his faithfulness.
He will not lay upon man more than is right;
wherefore then doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
- what? shall we receive good at the hand of the Lord, and shall we not receive evil.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
He doth not afflict willingly, nor grieve the children of men, to crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth.
Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.
Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep, and let your joy be turned to heaviness.
There is a time to
weep, and a time to mourn;
a day when the Lord calls to weeping and to mourning, and to girding with sackcloth.
Weep then for yourselves and for your children, weep with them that weep, and bear ye one another's burdens.
- Jesus wept.
Be not swallowed up with overmuch sorrow;
2 Corinthians 2:7
but weep as though you wept not.
1 Corinthians 7:30
Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and confirm the feeble knees.
Say unto God, do not condemn me;
shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.
- What have I to do any more with idols?
If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious;
1 Peter 2:3
if he hath delivered you from the power of darkness, and translated you into the kingdom of his dear Son,
then let not your heart be troubled;
for thy Maker is thine husband;
the Lord of hosts is his name;
and thy Redeemer the holy one of Israel:
The God of the whole earth shall he be called.
