“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.  And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.  For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.  But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
(John 3:16-21 ESV)
To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.
 Give ear to my words, O LORD;
consider my groaning.
 Give attention to the sound of my cry,
my King and my God,
for to you do I pray.
 O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.
 For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
evil may not dwell with you.
 The boastful shall not stand before your eyes;
you hate all evildoers.
 You destroy those who speak lies;
the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
 But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
will enter your house.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
in the fear of you.
 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness
because of my enemies;
make your way straight before me.
 For there is no truth in their mouth;
their inmost self is destruction;
their throat is an open grave;
they flatter with their tongue.
 Make them bear their guilt, O God;
let them fall by their own counsels;
because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,
for they have rebelled against you.
 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may exult in you.
 For you bless the righteous, O LORD;
you cover him with favor as with a shield.
(Psalm 5 ESV)
