~ Psalm 23 ~
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
h eleadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul;
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk though the valley of the sadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for thou are with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
~ Luke 15: 4 - 7 ~
What man of you, having an hundred sheep,
if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness,
and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulder, rejoicing.
And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours,
saying unto them,
Rejoice with me;
for I have found my sheep which was lost.
I say unto you,
that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth,
more than over ninety and nine just persons,
which need no repentance.
