And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. not by works, so that no one can boast. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
