Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

Heb. 11.21 It was by faith Jacob when he was old and dying, blessed each of Jacob’s sons, and worshiped as he leaned on the top of his staff.

Isa 50.4 The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed.
