LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth. – A day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a door keeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. – Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. – Therefore will the LORD wait that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.
Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us: … let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience.

September 24 evening
Ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. – Thou are fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips. – All bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth.
Ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. – He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself. – We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen.
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. – I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. – Unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. – As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
