But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.
Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God:
Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;
The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
