…pay attention to how you hear.
To those who listen to my teaching,
more understanding will be given.
But for those who are not listening,
even what they think they understand
will be taken away from them.
God’s way is perfect.
All the LORD’s promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
For who is God except the LORD?
Who but our God is a solid rock?
…’Dry bones, listen to the word of the LORD!
…Look! I am going to put breath into you
and make you live again!
I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin.
I will put breath into you, and you will come to life.
Then you will know that I am the LORD.’”
You light a lamp for me.
The LORD, my God, lights up my darkness.
…in my distress I cried out to the LORD;
yes, I prayed to my God for help.
He heard me from his sanctuary;
my cry to him reached his ears.
