He guided them safely along. — Ps 78:53 NET
I walk in the path of righteousness, in the pathway of justice.
“I am going to send an angel before you to protect you as you journey and to bring you into the place that I have prepared.”—Through all that they suffered, he suffered too. The messenger sent from his very presence delivered them. In his love and mercy he protected them; he lifted them up and carried them throughout ancient times.
For they did not conquer the land by their swords, and they did not prevail by their strength, but rather by your power, strength and good favor, for you were partial to them.—In this way you guided your people, gaining for yourself an honored reputation.
Lord, lead me in your righteousness because of those who wait to ambush me, remove the obstacles in the way in which you are guiding me!—Reveal your light and your faithfulness! They will lead me, they will escort me back to your holy hill, and to the place where you live. Then I will go to the altar of God, to the God who gives me ecstatic joy, so that I express my thanks to you, O God, my God, with a harp.
Prov 8:20, Exod 23:20, Isa 63:9, Ps 44:3, Isa 63:14, Ps 5:8, Ps 43:3-4
You were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified. — 1 Cor 6:11 NET
The blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.—He endured punishment that made us well; because of his wounds we have been healed.—Christ loved the church and gave himself for her to sanctify her by cleansing her with the washing of the water by the word, so that he may present the church to himself as glorious – not having a stain or wrinkle, or any such blemish, but holy and blameless.—“She was permitted to be dressed in bright, clean, fine linen” (for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints).—Let us draw near with a sincere heart in the assurance that faith brings, because we have had our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water.
Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.—How blessed is the one whose rebellious acts are forgiven,… How blessed is the one whose wrongdoing the Lord does not punish, in whose spirit there is no deceit.
1 John 1:7, Isa 53:5, Eph 5:25-27, Rev 19:8, Heb 10:22, Rom 8:33, Ps 32:1-2
