And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.
With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding. With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.
The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head.
Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.
Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in his season.
And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
O God, thous hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee:…
Ye shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.
My son, forget not my law; but ley thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.
For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
1 Thessalonians 4:9
He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
1 John 2:10
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
1 Peter 1:22
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
1 John 4:7,8
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
1 John 3:18
Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
1 John 4:11
Put therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
