It pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself. Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed.
I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil. “Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, “though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity? Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace. Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Lord, You will establish peace for us, for You have also done all our works in us.
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.
21 Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
12 Lord, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.
