Joshua 1:8

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Psalm 19:7-9

The law of the Lord is perfect,
    reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure,

    making wise the simple;
the precepts of the Lord are right,
    rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure,

    enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the Lord is clean,
    enduring forever;
the rules of the Lord are true,

    and righteous altogether.

Isaiah 53:4-6

Surely he has borne our griefs
     and carried our sorrows;
   yet we esteemed him stricken,
     smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions;
     he was crushed for our iniquities;
   upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
     and with his wounds we are healed.
6   All we like sheep have gone astray;
      we have turned—every one—to his own way;
   and the Lord has laid on him
      the iniquity of us all.

Jeremiah 9:23-24

23 Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, 24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”

Psalm 103:1-4

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and all that is within me,
    bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
    who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
    who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
