Joshua 1:1-2 (NLT)
Now The Lord said to Samuel, “You have mourned long enough for Saul. I have rejected him as king of Israel, so fill your flask with olive oil and go to Bethlehem. Find a man named Jesse who lives there, for I have selected one of his sons to be My king.”
I Samuel 16:1 (NLT)
The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,
“The Spirit of The Lord is upon Me (The Messiah). Because He has anointed Me to preach the Good News to the poor. He has sent Me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy), to proclaim the Favorable Year Of The Lord (the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly).”
Then He rolled up the scroll (having stopped in the middle of the verse), gave it back to the attendant and sat down (to teach); and the eyes of all those in the synagogue were attentively fixed on Him. He began speaking to them: “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing and in your presence.”

II Chronicles 32:8 (ESV)
Jahaziel said, “Listen to me King Jehoshaphat and everyone living in Judah and Jerusalem! The Lord says this to you: ‘Don’t be afraid or worry about this large army, because the battle is not your battle. It is God’s battle!'”
II Chronicles 20:15 (ERV)
Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. When he began to settle accounts, they brought to him a servant who owed him ten thousand bags of gold. Because the servant didn’t have enough to pay it back, the master ordered that he should be sold, along with his wife and children and everything he had, and that the proceeds should be used as payment. But the servant fell down, kneeled before him, and said, ‘Please, be patient with me, and I’ll pay you back.’ The master had compassion on that servant, released him, and forgave the loan.
When that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him one hundred coins. He grabbed him around the throat and said, ‘Pay me back what you owe me.’ Then his fellow servant fell down and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I’ll pay you back.’ But he refused. Instead, he threw him into prison until he paid back his debt.
When his fellow servants saw what happened, they were deeply offended. They came and told their master all that happened. His master called the first servant and said, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you appealed to me. Shouldn’t you also have mercy on your fellow servant, just as I had mercy on you?’ His master was furious and handed him over to the guard responsible for punishing prisoners, until he had paid the whole debt.
God said to Moses, “I will show mercy to anyone I want to show mercy to. I will show pity to anyone I choose.” So God will choose anyone He decides to show mercy to, and His choice does not depend on what people want or try to do.
Romans 9:15-16 (ERV)
But God, being so very rich in Mercy, because of His Great and Wonderful Love with which He loved us, even when we were spiritually dead and separated from Him because of our sins, He made us spiritually alive together with Christ (for by His Grace, His undeserved Favor and Mercy, you have been saved from God’s Judgment).
Ephesians 2:4-5 (AMP)

Lamentations 3:22 (CEV)
Great blessings belong to those who don’t listen to evil advice, who don’t live like sinners, and who don’t join those who make fun of God. Instead, they love The Lord’s Teachings and think about them day and night. So they grow strong, like a tree planted by a stream, a tree that produces fruit when it should and has leaves that never fall. Everything they do is successful.
Psalm 1:1-3 (ERV)

II Chronicles 16:12-13 (NLT)
Lord although He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: “Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has The Arm of The Lord been revealed?”
John 12:37-38 (NKJV)
What then? If some did not believe or were unfaithful to God, their lack of belief will not nullify and make invalid the faithfulness of God and His Word, will it? Certainly not! Let God be found true (as He will be), though every person be found a liar, just as it is written in Scripture, “That You May Be Justified In Your Words, And Prevail When You Are Judged (by sinful men).”
Romans 3:3-4 (AMP)
Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp!

I Timothy 2:1-2 (ICB)
Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished.
Romans 13:1-2 (NLT)
