Promises to Those Who Seek God
But from there you will seek the LORD your God and you will find
him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul.
Those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
I did not speak in secret, in a land of darkness;
I did not say to the offspring of Jacob, ‘Seek me in vain.’
I, the LORD speak the truth; I declare what is right.
Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love;
break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the LORD,
that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me
shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.”
