Wise will Stand

Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve kings. He won’t serve obscure men.  Proverbs 22:29

How I love your law! It is my meditation all day.  Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for your commandments are always with me.   I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your testimonies are my meditation.  I understand more than the aged, because I have kept your precepts.  Psalms 119:97-100

You shall serve Yahweh your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you.  Exodus 23:25

It shall happen, if you shall listen diligently to Yahweh your God’s voice, to observe to do all his commandments which I command you today, that Yahweh your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth.  All these blessings will come upon you, and overtake you, if you listen to Yahweh your God’s voice.  You shall be blessed in the city, and you shall be blessed in the field.  You shall be blessed in the fruit of your body, the fruit of your ground, the fruit of your animals, the increase of your livestock, and the young of your flock.  Your basket and your kneading trough shall be blessed.  You shall be blessed when you come in, and you shall be blessed when you go out.  Yahweh will cause your enemies who rise up against you to be struck before you. They will come out against you one way, and will flee before you seven ways.  Yahweh will command the blessing on you in your barns, and in all that you put your hand to. He will bless you in the land which Yahweh your God gives you.  Yahweh will establish you for a holy people to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you shall keep the commandments of Yahweh your God, and walk in his ways.  All the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by Yahweh’s name, and they will be afraid of you.  Yahweh will grant you abundant prosperity, in the fruit of your body, in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your ground, in the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers to give you.  Yahweh will open to you his good treasure in the sky, to give the rain of your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You will lend to many nations, and you will not borrow. Yahweh will make you the head, and not the tail. You will be above only, and you will not be beneath; if you listen to the commandments of Yahweh your God, which I command you today, to observe and to do, and shall not turn away from any of the words which I command you today, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.  Deuteronomy 28:1-14

Better is a little that the righteous has, than the abundance of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but Yahweh upholds the righteous.  Yahweh knows the days of the perfect. Their inheritance shall be forever. They shall not be disappointed in the time of evil. In the days of famine they shall be satisfied. Psalms 37:16-19

If you, Yah, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand?  But there is forgiveness with you, therefore you are feared.  I wait for Yahweh. My soul waits. I hope in his word. Psalms 130:3-5

Yahweh thunders his voice before his army; for his forces are very great; for he is strong who obeys his command; for the day of Yahweh is great and very awesome, and who can endure it? Joel 2:11
