When thou has eaten and are full, … thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.
Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God. – One of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
Every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. – He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks. – The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, … who forgiveth all thine iniquities; … who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies.

February 7 evening
Jesus … was moved with compassion toward them.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever. – We have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. – Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way. – He cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour? Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
Thou, O LORD, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth. O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
