Despair & Hope

Genesis 15:1-6      AND AFTER THESE THINGS THE WORD OF THE LORD CAME TO ABRAM IN A VISION, SAYING, “FEAR NOT, ABRAM, I SHIELD YOU, YOUR REWARD SHALL BE VERY GREAT.”
    AND ABRAM SAID, “MASTER AND LORD, WHAT WILL YOU GIVE ME? WHEREAS I AM DEPARTING WITHOUT A CHILD, BUT THE SON OF ACQUISITION IS THIS ELIEZER OF DAMASCUS IS MY HEIR.”
    AND ABRAM SAID, “I AM GRIEVED SINCE YOU HAVE GIVEN ME NO OFFSPRING, AND BEHOLD A SON OF MY HOUSE IS MY HEIR.”
    AND IMMEDIATELY THERE WAS A VOICE OF THE LORD TO HIM, SAYING, “THIS SHALL NOT BE YOUR HEIR; BUT HE THAT SHALL COME OUT OF YOU SHALL BE YOUR HEIR.”
    AND HE BROUGHT HIM OUT AND SAID TO HIM, “LOOK UP NOW TO THE SKY, AND COUNT THE STARS, IF YOU WILL BE ABLE TO NUMBER THEM FULLY,” AND HE SAID, “THUS SHALL YOUR SEED BE.”
    AND ABRAM BELIEVED THE THEOS (Alpha & Omega), AND IT WAS COUNTED TO HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Genesis 21:1-8      AND THE LORD VISITED SARAH AS HE HAD SAID. AND THE LORD DID TO SARAH AS HE SPOKE.
    AND SHE CONCEIVED AND BORE TO ABRAHAM A SON IN OLD AGE, AT THE SET TIME ACCORDING AS THE LORD SPOKE TO HIM.
    AND ABRAHAM CALLED THE NAME OF HIS SON THAT WAS BORN TO HIM, WHOM SARAH BORE TO HIM, ISAAC.
    AND ABRAHAM CIRCUMCISED ISAAC ON THE EIGHTH DAY, AS THE THEOS (Alpha & Omega) COMMANDED HIM.
    AND ABRAHAM WAS A HUNDRED YEARS OLD WHEN ISAAC HIS SON WAS BORN TO HIM.
    AND SARAH SAID, “THE LORD HAS MADE LAUGHTER FOR ME, FOR WHOEVER SHALL HEAR SHALL REJOICE WITH ME.”
    AND SHE SAID, “WHO SHALL SAY TO ABRAHAM THAT SARAH BREASTFEEDS A CHILD? FOR I HAVE BORN A CHILD IN MY OLD AGE!”
    AND THE CHILD GREW AND WAS WEANED AND ABRAHAM MADE A GREAT FEAST THE DAY THAT HIS SON ISAAC WAS WEANED.

Genesis 42:36      AND THEIR FATHER JACOB SAID TO THEM, “YOU HAVE BEREAVED ME. JOSEPH IS NOT, SIMEON IS NOT, AND WILL YOU TAKE BENJAMIN? ALL THESE THINGS HAVE COME UPON ME.”

Genesis 45:26-28      AND THEY REPORTED TO HIM, SAYING, “YOUR SON JOSEPH IS LIVING, AND HE IS RULER OVER ALL THE LAND OF EGYPT.” AND JACOB WAS AMAZED, FOR HE DID NOT BELIEVE THEM.
    BUT THEY SPOKE TO HIM ALL THE WORDS UTTERED BY JOSEPH, WHATSOEVER HE SAID TO THEM; AND HAVING SEEN THE CHARIOTS WHICH JOSEPH SENT TO TAKE HIM UP, THE SPIRIT OF JACOB THEIR FATHER REVIVED.
    AND JESRAEL SAID, “IT IS A GREAT THING FOR ME IF JOSEPH MY SON IS YET ALIVE. I WILL GO AND SEE HIM BEFORE I DIE.”

1 Kings 17:1-16      AND ELIU/ELIAS (Elijah) THE PROPHET, THE THESBITE OF THESBAE OF GALAAD/GILEAD, SAID TO AHAB, “AS JESUS, THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) OF HOSTS, THE THEOS OF JESRAEL, LIVES, BEFORE WHOM I STAND, THERE SHALL NOT BE THESE YEARS DEW NOR RAIN, EXCEPT BY THE WORD OF MY MOUTH.”
    AND THE WORD OF JESUS CAME TO ELIU, SAYING,
    “DEPART FROM HERE EASTWARD, AND HIDE YOU BY THE BROOK OF CHORRATH, THAT IS BEFORE JORDAN.
    AND IT SHALL BE THAT YOU SHALL DRINK WATER OF THE BROOK, AND I WILL CHARGE THE RAVENS TO FEED YOU THERE.”
    AND ELIU (Elijah) DID ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF JESUS, AND HE SAT BY THE BROOK OF CHORRATH BEFORE JORDAN.
    AND THE RAVENS BROUGHT HIM LOAVES IN THE MORNING, AND FLESH IN THE EVENING AND HE DRANK WATER OF THE BROOK.
    AND IT CAME TO PASS AFTER SOME TIME, THAT THE BROOK WAS DRIED UP, BECAUSE THERE HAD BEEN NO RAIN UPON THE LAND.
    AND THE WORD OF JESUS CAME TO ELIU, SAYING,
    “ARISE, AND GO TO SAREPTA OF THE SIDONIAN LAND: BEHOLD, I HAVE THERE COMMANDED A WIDOW-WOMAN TO MAINTAIN YOU.”
    AND HE AROSE AND WENT TO SAREPTA, AND CAME TO THE GATE OF THE CITY: AND, BEHOLD, A WIDOW-WOMAN WAS THERE GATHERING STICKS; AND ELIU (Elijah) CRIED AFTER HER, AND SAID TO HER, “FETCH ME, I PRAY YOU, A LITTLE WATER IN A VESSEL, THAT I MAY DRINK.”
    AND SHE WENT TO FETCH IT; AND ELIU (Elijah) CRIED AFTER HER, AND SAID, “BRING ME, I PRAY YOU, A MORSEL OF THE BREAD THAT IS IN YOUR HAND.”
    AND THE WOMAN SAID, “AS JESUS YOUR THEOS LIVES, I HAVE NOT A LOAF, BUT ONLY A HANDFUL OF MEAL IN THE PITCHER, AND A LITTLE OIL IN A CRUSE, AND, BEHOLD, I AM GOING TO GATHER TWO STICKS, AND I SHALL GO IN AND DRESS IT FOR MYSELF AND MY CHILDREN, AND WE SHALL EAT IT AND DIE.”
    AND ELIU (Elijah) SAID TO HER, “BE OF GOOD COURAGE, GO IN AND DO ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD: BUT MAKE ME THEREOF A LITTLE LOAF, AND YOU SHALL BRING IT OUT TO ME FIRST, AND YOU SHALL MAKE SOME FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR CHILDREN LAST.
    FOR THUS SAITH JESUS, ‘THE PITCHER OF MEAL SHALL NOT FAIL, AND THE CRUSE OF OIL SHALL NOT DIMINISH, UNTIL THE DAY THAT JESUS GIVES RAIN UPON THE EARTH.’
    AND THE WOMAN WENT AND DID SO, AND DID EAT, SHE, AND HE, AND HER CHILDREN.
    AND THE PITCHER OF MEAL FAILED NOT, AND THE CRUSE OF OIL WAS NOT DIMINISHED, ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF JESUS WHICH HE SPOKE BY THE HAND OF ELIU.

1 Kings 17:17-24      AND IT CAME TO PASS AFTERWARD, THAT THE SON OF THE WOMAN THE MISTRESS OF THE HOUSE WAS SICK; AND HIS SICKNESS WAS VERY SEVERE, UNTIL THERE WAS NO BREATH LEFT IN HIM.
    AND SHE SAID TO ELIU, “WHAT HAVE I TO DO WITH YOU, O MAN OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega)? HAVE YOU COME IN TO ME TO BRING MY SINS TO REMEMBRANCE, AND TO SLAY MY SON?”
    AND ELIU (Elijah) SAID TO THE WOMAN, “GIVE ME YOUR SON.” AND HE TOOK HIM OUT OF HER BOSOM, AND TOOK HIM UP TO THE CHAMBER IN WHICH HE HIMSELF LODGED, AND LAID HIM ON THE BED.
    AND ELIU (Elijah) CRIED ALOUD, AND SAID, “ALAS, JESUS, THE WITNESS OF THE WIDOW WITH WHOM I SOJOURN, YOU HAVE WORKED CALAMITY FOR HER IN SLAYING HER SON!”
    AND HE BREATHED ON THE CHILD THRICE, AND CALLED ON JESUS, AND SAID, “JESUS MY THEOS, LET, I PRAY YOU, THE SOUL OF THIS CHILD RETURN TO HIM.”
    AND IT WAS SO, AND THE CHILD CRIED OUT,
    AND HE BROUGHT HIM DOWN FROM THE UPPER CHAMBER INTO THE HOUSE, AND GAVE HIM TO HIS MOTHER; AND ELIU (Elijah) SAID, “SEE, YOUR SON LIVES.”
    AND THE WOMAN SAID TO ELIU, “BEHOLD, I KNOW THAT YOU ARE A MAN OF THEOS, AND THE WORD OF JESUS IN YOUR MOUTH IS TRUE.”

1 Kings 19:3-5      AND ELIU (Elijah) FEARED FOR HIS LIFE AND DEPARTED: AND HE WENT TO BERSABEE TO THE LAND OF JUDAH, AND HE LEFT HIS SERVANT THERE.
    AND HE HIMSELF WENT A DAY'S JOURNEY IN THE DESERT, AND WENT AND SAT UNDER A JUNIPER TREE; AND ASKED CONCERNING HIS LIFE THAT HE MIGHT DIE, AND SAID, “LET IT BE ENOUGH NOW, JESUS, TAKE, I PRAY YOU, MY LIFE FROM ME; FOR I AM NO BETTER THAN MY FOREFATHERS.”
    AND HE LAY DOWN AND SLEPT THERE UNDER A TREE; AND BEHOLD, SOMEONE TOUCHED HIM, AND SAID TO HIM, “ARISE AND EAT.”

Tobit 3:1-6      THEN I BEING GRIEVED DID CRY, AND IN MY SORROW PRAYED, SAYING,
    “O LORD, YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS, AND ALL YOUR WORKS AND ALL YOUR WAYS ARE MERCY AND TRUTH, AND YOU JUDGE TRULY AND RIGHTFULLY FOREVER.
    REMEMBER ME, AND LOOK ON ME, DO NOT PUNISH ME FOR MY SINS AND IGNORANCE, AND THE SINS OF MY FATHERS, WHO HAVE SINNED BEFORE YOU:
    FOR THEY DID NOT OBEY YOUR COMMANDMENTS: THUS YOU HAVE DELIVERED US FOR A SPOIL, AND UNTO CAPTIVITY, AND UNTO DEATH, AND FOR A PROVERB OF REPROACH TO ALL THE NATIONS AMONG WHOM WE ARE DISPERSED.
    AND NOW YOUR JUDGMENTS ARE MANY AND TRUE: DEAL WITH ME ACCORDING TO MY SINS AND MY FATHERS': BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT KEPT YOUR COMMANDMENTS, NEITHER HAVE WALKED IN TRUTH BEFORE YOU.
    NOW THEREFORE DEAL WITH ME AS SEEM BEST UNTO YOU, AND COMMAND MY SPIRIT TO BE TAKEN FROM ME, THAT I MAY BE DISSOLVED, AND BECOME EARTH: FOR IT IS PROFITABLE FOR ME TO DIE RATHER THAN TO LIVE, BECAUSE I HAVE HEARD FALSE REPROACHES, AND HAVE MUCH SORROW: COMMAND THEREFORE THAT I MAY NOW BE DELIVERED OUT OF THIS DISTRESS, AND GO INTO THE EVERLASTING PLACE: TURN NOT YOUR FACE AWAY FROM ME.”

Tobit 3:7-15      IT CAME TO PASS THE SAME DAY, THAT IN ECBATANE A CITY OF MEDIA SARA THE DAUGHTER OF RAGUEL WAS ALSO REPROACHED BY HER FATHER'S MAIDS;
    BECAUSE THAT SHE HAD BEEN MARRIED TO SEVEN HUSBANDS, WHOM ASMODEUS THE EVIL SPIRIT HAD KILLED, BEFORE THEY HAD LAIN WITH HER. “DO YOU NOT KNOW,” THEY SAID, “THAT YOU HAVE STRANGLED YOUR HUSBANDS? YOU HAVE HAD ALREADY SEVEN HUSBANDS, NEITHER WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANY OF THEM.
    SO WHY DO YOU BEAT US FOR THEM? IF THEY BE DEAD, GO YOUR WAYS AFTER THEM, LET US NEVER SEE OF YOU EITHER SON OR DAUGHTER.”
    WHEN SHE HEARD THESE THINGS, SHE WAS VERY SORROWFUL, SO THAT SHE THOUGHT TO HAVE STRANGLED HERSELF; AND SHE SAID, “I AM THE ONLY DAUGHTER OF MY FATHER, AND IF I DO THIS, IT SHALL BE A REPROACH UNTO HIM, AND I SHALL BRING HIS OLD AGE WITH SORROW UNTO THE GRAVE.”
    THEN SHE PRAYED TOWARD THE WINDOW, AND SAID, “BLESSED ARE YOU, O LORD MY THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), AND YOUR HOLY AND GLORIOUS NAME IS BLESSED AND HONOURABLE FOREVER: LET ALL YOUR WORKS PRAISE YOU FOREVER.
    AND NOW, O LORD, I SET I MY EYES AND MY FACE TOWARD YOU,
    AND SAY, TAKE ME OUT OF THE EARTH, THAT I MAY HEAR NO MORE THE REPROACH.
    YOU KNOW, LORD, THAT I AM PURE FROM ALL SIN WITH MAN,
    AND THAT I NEVER POLLUTED MY NAME, NOR THE NAME OF MY FATHER, IN THE LAND OF MY CAPTIVITY: I AM THE ONLY DAUGHTER OF MY FATHER, NEITHER HAS HE ANY CHILD TO BE HIS HEIR, NEITHER ANY NEAR KINSMAN, NOR ANY SON OF HIS ALIVE, TO WHOM I MAY KEEP MYSELF FOR A WIFE: MY SEVEN HUSBANDS ARE ALREADY DEAD; AND WHY SHOULD I LIVE? BUT IF IT PLEASE NOT YOU THAT I SHOULD DIE, COMMAND SOME REGARD TO BE HAD OF ME, AND PITY TAKEN OF ME, THAT I HEAR NO MORE REPROACH.”

Tobit 3:16-17      SO THE PRAYERS OF THEM BOTH WERE HEARD BEFORE THE MAJESTY OF THE GREAT THEOS (The Alpha & Omega).
    AND RAPHAEL WAS SENT TO HEAL THEM BOTH, THAT IS, TO SCALE AWAY THE WHITENESS OF TOBIT'S EYES, AND TO GIVE SARA THE DAUGHTER OF RAGUEL FOR A WIFE TO TOBIAS THE SON OF TOBIT; AND TO BIND ASMODEUS THE EVIL SPIRIT; BECAUSE SHE BELONGED TO TOBIAS BY RIGHT OF INHERITANCE. THE SELFSAME TIME TOBIT CAME HOME, AND ENTERED INTO HIS HOUSE, AND SARA THE DAUGHTER OF RAGUEL CAME DOWN FROM HER UPPER CHAMBER.

Judith 9:11      FOR YOUR POWER STANDS NOT IN MULTITUDE NOR YOUR STRENGTH IN STRONG MEN: FOR YOU ARE A THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) OF THE AFFLICTED, A HELPER OF THE OPPRESSED, AN UPHOLDER OF THE WEAK, A PROTECTOR OF THE FORLORN, A SAVIOUR OF THEM THAT ARE WITHOUT HOPE.

Psalm 30:5      FOR ANGER IS IN HIS WRATH, BUT LIFE IN HIS FAVOUR: CRYING SHALL TARRY FOR THE EVENING, BUT JOY SHALL BE IN THE MORNING.

Psalm 126:5-6      THEY THAT SOW IN TEARS SHALL REAP IN JOY.
    THEY WENT ON AND CRIED AS THEY CAST THEIR SEEDS; BUT THEY SHALL SURELY COME WITH REJOICING, BRINGING THEIR SHEAVES WITH THEM.

Isaiah 38:14-15      AS A SWALLOW, SO WILL I CRY, AND AS A DOVE, SO DO I MOURN: FOR MY EYES HAVE FAILED WITH LOOKING TO THE HEIGHT OF HEAVEN TO JESUS, WHO HAS DELIVERED ME, AND REMOVED THE SORROW OF MY SOUL.

Jeremiah 2:32      WILL A BRIDE FORGET HER ORNAMENTS, OR A VIRGIN HER GIRDLE? BUT MY PEOPLE HAVE FORGOTTEN ME DAYS WITHOUT NUMBER.

Jeremiah 31:15-16      “A VOICE WAS HEARD IN RAMA, OF LAMENTATION, AND OF CRYING, AND WAILING; RACHEL WOULD NOT CEASE CRYING FOR HER CHILDREN, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT.
    THUS SAITH JESUS; “LET YOUR VOICE CEASE FROM CRYING, AND YOUR EYES FROM YOUR TEARS: FOR THERE IS A REWARD FOR YOUR WORKS; AND THEY SHALL RETURN FROM THE LAND OF YOUR ENEMIES.

Lamentations 1:16      MY EYE HAS POURED OUT WATER, BECAUSE HE THAT SHOULD COMFORT ME, THAT SHOULD RESTORE MY SOUL, HAS BEEN REMOVED FAR FROM ME: MY SONS HAVE BEEN DESTROYED, BECAUSE THE ENEMY HAS PREVAILED.

Jonah 4:8-11      AND IT CAME TO PASS AT THE RISING OF THE SUN, THAT THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) COMMANDED A BURNING EAST WIND; AND THE SUN STRUCK ON THE HEAD OF JONAS, AND HE FAINTED, AND DESPAIRED OF HIS LIFE, AND SAID, “IT IS BETTER FOR ME TO DIE THAN TO LIVE.”
    AND THEOS SAID TO JONAS, “ARE YOU VERY MUCH GRIEVED FOR THE GOURD?” AND HE SAID, “I AM VERY MUCH GRIEVED, EVEN TO DEATH.”
    AND JESUS SAID, “YOU HAD PITY ON THE GOURD, FOR WHICH YOU HAVE NOT LABOURED, NEITHER DID YOU GROW IT; WHICH CAME UP BEFORE NIGHT, AND PERISHED BEFORE ANOTHER NIGHT:
    AND SHALL NOT I SPARE NINEVEH, THE GREAT CITY, IN WHICH DWELL MORE THAN TWELVE MULTITUDES OF HUMAN BEINGS, WHO DO NOT KNOW THEIR RIGHT HAND OR THEIR LEFT HAND; AND ALSO MUCH CATTLE?”
