For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.
May the Lord give strength to His people! May the Lord bless His people with peace!
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom He has chosen as His heritage!
So we Your people and the sheep of Your pasture Will give thanks to You forever; To all generations we will tell of Your praise.
Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for He is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.
“Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of My pasture!” declares the Lord.
"I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd."
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and He will dwell with them. They will be His people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
