A gentle answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger.
The Lord your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.”
Fixing our eyes on Jesus,
the pioneer and perfecter of faith.
For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its
shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
