2 However many you have, take no pleasure in them, unless the fear of the Lord lives among them.
8 He did not spare the people with whom Lot lived; he abhorred them, rather, for their pride.
13 the sinner will not escape with his ill-gotten gains nor the patience of the devout go for nothing.
18 For see, the sky and the heavens above the sky, the abyss and the earth shake at his visitation.
23 Such are the thoughts of the person of little sense, stupid, misguided, cherishing his folly.
24 Listen to me, my child, and learn knowledge, and give your whole mind to my words.
25 I shall expound discipline methodically and proclaim knowledge with precision.
26 When God created his works in the beginning, he assigned them their places as soon as they were made.
27 He determined his works for all time, from their origins to their distant generations. They know neither hunger nor weariness, and they never desert their duties.
28 Not one has ever got in the way of another, and they will never disobey his word.
30 He covered its surface with every kind of animal, and to it they will return.
