Yahweh has trapped the wicked in the work of their own hands
- Extracted from Psalm 9: 1-12, 15-16
I thank you, Yahweh, with all my heart; I recite your marvels one by one, I rejoice and exult in you, I sing praise to your name, Most High.
My enemies are in retreat, stumbling, perishing as you confront them: you have upheld the justice of my cause from the throne where you sit as righteous judge.
You have checked the nations, you have crushed the wicked, blotted out their name for ever and ever; the enemies is finished, in everlasting ruin, you have overthrown cities, their memories has perished.
See, Yahweh is enthroned for ever, he sets up his throne for judgement; he is going to judge the world with justice, and pronounce a true verdict on the nations.
May Yahweh be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold when times are hard.
Those who acknowledge your name can rely on you, you never desert those who seek you, Yahweh.
To Yahweh with his home in Zion, sing praise, tell the nations his mighty actions; he the avenger of blood, remembers them, he does not ignore the cry of the wretched.
The nations have sunk into a pit of their own making, they caught by the feet in the snare they set themselves.
Yahweh has made himself known, has given judgement, he has trapped the wicked in the work of their own hands. 8-)

Yahweh our Guardian—Extracted from Psalm 121:
I lift up my eyes to the mountains: where is help to come from?
Help comes to me from Yahweh, who made heaven and earth.
Not letting our footsteps slip! This guard of yours, he does not doze!
The guardian of Israel does not doze or sleep.
Yahweh guards you, shades you.
With Yahweh at your right hand sun cannot strike you down by day, nor moon at night.
Yahweh guards you from harm, he guards your lives,
He guards you leaving, coming back, now and for always.

Extracted from first letter of St. Peter 4: 13-16
If you can have a share in the sufferings of Christ, be glad, because you will enjoy a much greater gladness when his glory is revealed.
It is a blessing for you when they insult you for bearing the name of Christ, because it means that you have the Spirit of glory, the Spirit of God resting on you.
None of you should ever deserve to suffer for bearing a murderer, a thief, a criminal or an informer; but if anyone of you should suffer for being a Christian, then he is not to be ashamed of it; he should thank God that he has been called one.
The Triumph and the Supremacy of Christ and a Huge Inheritance for us- Extracted from Ephesians Chapter 1:
15 That is why I (hereinafter referred to Paul), having once heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and the love you show towards all the saints (God’s holy people),
16 have never failed to remember you in my prayers and to thank God for you.
17 May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you a spirit of wisdom and perception of what is revealed, to bring you to full knowledge of him.
18 May he enlighten the eyes of your mind so that you can see what hope his call holds for you, which rich glories he has promised the saints will inherit
19 and how infinitely great is the power that he has exercised for us believers. This you can tell from the strength of his power
20 at work in Christ, when he used it to raise him from the dead and to make him sit at his right hand in heaven,
21 far above every Sovereignty, Authority, Power, or Domination, or any other name that can be named, not only in this age but also in the age to come.
22 He has put all things under his feet, and made him as the ruler of everything, the head of the Church;
23 which is his Body, the fullness of him who fills the whole creation.
I am going to make breath enter you, and you will live
-Extracted from the prophet Ezekiel, Chapter 37: 1-14
1 The hand of Yahweh was on me; he carried me away by the spirit of Yahweh and set me down in the middle of the valley, a valley full of bones.
2 He made me walk up and down and all around among them. There were vast quantities of these bones on the floor of the valley; and they were completely dry.
3 He said to me, 'Son of man, can these bones live?' I said, 'You know, Lord Yahweh.'
4 He said, 'Prophesy over these bones. Say, "Dry bones, hear the word of Yahweh.
5 The Lord Yahweh says this to these bones: I am now going to make breath enter you, and you will live.
6 I shall put sinews on you, I shall make flesh grow on you, I shall cover you with skin and give you breath, and you will live; and you will know that I am Yahweh." '
7 I prophesied as I had been ordered. While I was prophesying, there was a noise, a clattering sound; it was the bones coming together.
8 And as I looked, they were covered with sinews; flesh was growing on them and skin was covering them, yet there was no breath in them.
9 He said to me, 'Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man. Say to the breath, "The Lord Yahweh says this: Come from the four winds, breath; breathe on these dead, so that they come to life!" '
10 I prophesied as he had ordered me, and the breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet, a great, an immense army.
11 Then he said, 'Son of man, these bones are the whole House of Israel. They keep saying, "Our bones are dry, our hope has gone; we are done for."
12 So, prophesy. Say to them, "The Lord Yahweh says this: I am now going to open your graves; I shall raise you from your graves, my people, and lead you back to the soil of Israel.
13 And you will know that I am Yahweh, when I open your graves and raise you from your graves, my people,
14 and put my spirit in you, and you revive, and I resettle you on your own soil. Then you will know that I, Yahweh, have spoken and done this - declares the Lord Yahweh." '
