Let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works.--HEB. 10:24. How forcible are right words!--I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance. They that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.--If two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. …

If this is how you are going to treat me, please go ahead and kill me--if I have found favor in your eyes--and do not let me face my own ruin."
1 Kings 19:4
while he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness. He came to a broom bush, sat down under it and prayed that he might die. "I have had enough, LORD," he said. "Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors."
"Oh, that I might have my request, that God would grant what I hope for,
I despise my life; I would not live forever. Let me alone; my days have no meaning.
"Although I am blameless, I have no concern for myself; I despise my own life.
"I loathe my very life; therefore I will give free rein to my complaint and speak out in the bitterness of my soul.
But the eyes of the wicked will fail, and escape will elude them; their hope will become a dying gasp."
