    Psalm 144 | English Standard Version
    My Rock and My Fortress
    1
    Of David. Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle;
    2
    he is my steadfast love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples* under me.
    3
    O Lord, what is man that you regard him, or the son of man that you think of him?
    4
    Man is like a breath; his days are like a passing shadow.
    5
    Bow your heavens, O Lord, and come down! Touch the mountains so that they smoke!
    6
    Flash forth the lightning and scatter them; send out your arrows and rout them!
    7
    Stretch out your hand from on high; rescue me and deliver me from the many waters, from the hand of foreigners,
    8
    whose mouths speak lies and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
    9
    I will sing a new song to you, O God; upon a ten-stringed harp I will play to you,
    10
    who gives victory to kings, who rescues David his servant from the cruel sword.
    11
    Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of foreigners, whose mouths speak lies and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
    12
    May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace;
    13
    may our granaries be full, providing all kinds of produce; may our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields;
    14
    may our cattle be heavy with young, suffering no mishap or failure in bearing;* may there be no cry of distress in our streets!
    15
    Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall! Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord!

    Can't say I follow this, but at least I try to do my best.

    Luke 27-36

    27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,(AH) 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.(AI) 29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.(AJ) 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.(AK)

    32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?(AL) Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you?(AM) Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. 35 But love your enemies, do good to them,(AN) and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children(AO) of the Most High,(AP) because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36 Be merciful,(AQ) just as your Father(AR) is merciful.
    Luke 37-38

    “Do not judge, and you will not be judged.(AT) Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.(AU) 38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.(AV) For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”(AW)
    Luke 43-45

    “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 42 How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

    I always struggled with this quote. While it's necessary for ones mental health to forgive those (you feel) have wronged you, it can also promote passive simp-behavior and further promote being taken advantage of if you don't put your foot down and show that you had enough of their BS.

    So true. The Bible is pretty much describing the concept of Karma here. Beautiful.

    It just means you don't fully understand the essence of what Jesus taught here. Everything he said is true, and the best advice anyone can take about life. Some of the things of God may sound like foolishness to those who will perish, but it is the wisdom of God to all those who belong to him and who are to inherit eternal life.

    Isaiah 9:6

    For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
