Blessed is the man...

Job 5:17 through Job 5:18 (NIV)
"Blessed is the man whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but he also binds up; he injures, but his hands also heal.

Psa. 1:1 through Psa. 1:3 (NIV)
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.

Psa. 32:2 through Psa. 32:5 (NIV)
Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit. When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.
Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"— and you forgave the guilt of my sin.

Psa. 34:8 (NIV)
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.

Psa. 40:4 (NIV)
Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.

Psa. 84:12 (NIV)
O LORD Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you.

Psa. 94:12 through Psa. 94:13 (NIV)
Blessed is the man you discipline, O LORD, the man you teach from your law;
you grant him relief from days of trouble, till a pit is dug for the wicked.

Psa. 112:1 through Psa. 112:3 (NIV)
Praise the LORD.
Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who finds great delight in his commands. His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.

Psa. 127:4 through Psa. 127:5 (NIV)
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.

Prov. 3:13 through Prov. 3:14 (NIV)
Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.

Prov. 8:34 through Prov. 8:36 (NIV)
Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the LORD. But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death."

Prov. 28:14 through Prov. 28:15 (NIV)
Blessed is the man who always fears the LORD,but he who hardens his heart falls into trouble.

Isa. 56:2 (NIV)
Blessed is the man who does this, the man who holds it fast, who keeps the Sabbath without desecrating it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil."

Jer. 17:7 (NIV)
"But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.

Matt. 11:5 through Matt. 11:7 (NIV)
The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me."

Luke 14:15 through Luke 14:16 (NIV)
When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, "Blessed is the man who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God."

Rom. 4:8 through Rom. 4:9 (NIV)
Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him."

James 1:12 through James 1:13 (NIV)
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
