A Quote by The Bible on psalm, light, fear, strength, life, afraid, wicked, enemies, foes, trouble, joy, cry, mercy, lord, and courage

Psalm 27

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
        whom shall I fear?
        The LORD is the strength of my life;
        of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes,
        came upon me to eat up my flesh,
        they stumbled and fell.

3 Though a host should encamp against me,
        my heart shall not fear:
        though war should rise against me,
        in this will I be confident.

4 One thing have I desired of the LORD,
        that will I seek after;
        that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
        all the days of my life,
        to behold the beauty of the LORD,
         and to inquire in his temple.

5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:
        in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me;
        he shall set me up upon a rock.

6 And now shall mine head be lifted up
        above mine enemies round about me:
        therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy;
        I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice:
        have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face;
        my heart said unto thee,
        Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

9 Hide not thy face far from me;
        put not thy servant away in anger:
        thou hast been my help;
        leave me not, neither forsake me,
        O God of my salvation.

10 When my father and my mother forsake me,
        then the LORD will take me up.

11 Teach me thy way, O LORD,
       and lead me in a plain path,
       because of mine enemies.

12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies:
        for false witnesses are risen up against me,
        and such as breathe out cruelty.

13 I had fainted, unless I had believed
        to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

14 Wait on the LORD:
        be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
        wait, I say, on the LORD.

A Quote by Pierre Troubetzkoy on animal rights, peta, mercy, prayer, and god

Why should man expect his prayer for mercy to be heard by What is above him when he shows no mercy to what is below him?

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on control, judgment, mercy, and survival

A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions.

A Quote by William Wordsworth on bitterness, conflict, earth, heart, heaven, memory, and mercy

Sweet Mercy! to the gates of heaven This minstrel lead, his sins forgiven; The rueful conflict, the heart riven With vain endeavour, And memory of Earth's bitter leaven Effaced forever.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on deed, fear, force, god, heart, heaven, judaism, justice, mercy, power, prayer, quality, salvation, and seasons

The quality of mercy is not strain'd, It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath: it is twice bless'd; It blesseth him that gives and him that takes: 'Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes The throned monarch better than his crown; His sceptre shows the force of temporal power, The attribute to awe and majesty, Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings; But mercy is above the sceptred sway, It is enthroned in the heart of kings, It is an attribute to God himself, And earthly power doth then show likest God's When mercy seasons justice. Therefore Jew, Though justice be thy plea, consider this, That in the course of justice none of us Should see salvation: we do pray for mercy, And that same prayer doth teach us all to render The deeds of mercy.

A Quote by William Ellery Channing on conscience, conviction, depression, duty, force, future, god, goodness, happiness, heart, ideas, energy, mercy, obedience, patience, peace, perfection, preparation, providence, purpose, soul, suffering, temptation, w

Soul Gathers Force It is possible, when the future is dim, when our depressed faculties can form no bright ideas of the perfection and happiness of a better world,-it is possible still to cling to the conviction of God's merciful purpose towards His creatures, of His parental goodness even in suffering, still to feel that the path of duty, though trodden with a heavy heart, leads to peace; still to be true to conscience; still to do our work, to resist temptation, to be useful, though with diminished energy, to give up our wills when we cannot rejoice under God's mysterious providence. In this patient, though uncheered obedience, we become prepared for light. The soul gathers force.

William Ellery Channing (1780 - 1842)
