Psalm 48:12-14 (King James Version)

 12Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
 13Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
 14For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

Hebrews 4:8-24 (King James Version)

 8For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.

 9There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

 10For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

 11Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

 12For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

 13Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

 14Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

 15For 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.

 16Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
