2 Corinthians 4:6-10,16-18
(16) It will be in that day,” says Yahweh, “that you will call me ‘my husband,’ and no longer call me ‘my master.’ (17) For I will take away the names of the Baals out of her mouth, and they will no longer be mentioned by name. (21) It will happen in that day, I will respond,” says Yahweh, “I will respond to the heavens, and they will respond to the earth; (22) and the earth will respond to the grain, and the new wine, and the oil; and they will respond to Jezreel.
2 Corinthians 4:6-10,16-18
(6) seeing it is God who said, “Light will shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (7) But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves. (8) We are pressed on every side, yet not crushed; perplexed, yet not to despair; (9) pursued, yet not forsaken; struck down, yet not destroyed; (10) always carrying in the body the putting to death of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. (16) Therefore we don’t faint, but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day. (17) For our light affliction, which is for the moment, works for us more and more exceedingly an eternal weight of glory; (18) while we don’t look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
(11) So the king will desire your beauty, honor him, for he is your lord. (12) The daughter of Tyre comes with a gift. The rich among the people entreat your favor. (14) She shall be led to the king in embroidered work. The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to you. (15) With gladness and rejoicing they shall be led. They shall enter into the king’s palace. (16) Your sons will take the place of your fathers. You shall make them princes in all the earth.
(4) Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. (5) I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. (6) If a man doesn’t remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. (7) If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you. (8) “In this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so you will be my disciples. (9) Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. (10) If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love.
