from Psalm 92
|11||The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, *|
and shall spread abroad like a cedar of Lebanon.
|12||Those who are planted in the house of the LORD *|
shall flourish in the courts of our God;
|13||They shall still bear fruit in old age; *|
they shall be green and succulent;
|14||That they may show how upright the LORD is, *|
my Rock, in whom there is no fault.
Matthew 7: 22-27
22 On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in your name?' 23 Then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers.' 24 "Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. 25 The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell-and great was its fall!"
