Gain Christ, trusting Jehovah

       “In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely; and this is his name whereby he shall be called: Jehovah our righteousness.” (Jer 23:6 ASV)
       “For we are all become as one that is unclean, and all our righteousnesses are as a polluted garment: and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.” (Isa 64:6 ASV)
       “I will come with the mighty acts of the Lord Jehovah: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.” (Ps 71:16 ASV)
       “Yea verily, and I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but refuse, that I may gain Christ, and be found in him, not having a righteousness of mine own, [even] that which is of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith:” (Php 3:8-9 ASV)
       “Jehovah is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; My God, my rock, in whom I will take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower.” (Ps 18:2 ASV)
       “As for God, his way is perfect: The word of Jehovah is tried; He is a shield unto all them that take refuge in him.” (Ps 18:30 ASV)
       “But I will leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall take refuge in the name of Jehovah.” (Zep 3:12 ASV)
       “that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying, Behold, my servant whom I have chosen; My beloved in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my Spirit upon him, And he shall declare judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not strive, nor cry aloud; Neither shall any one hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed shall he not break, And smoking flax shall he not quench, Till he send forth judgment unto victory. And in his name shall the Gentiles hope.” (Mt 12:17-21 ASV)
       “And again, Isaiah saith, There shall be the root of Jesse, And he that ariseth to rule over the Gentiles; On him shall the Gentiles hope.” (Ro 15:12 ASV)
       “who delivered us out of so great a death, and will deliver: on whom we have set our hope that he will also still deliver us;” (2Co 1:10 ASV)
       “And such confidence have we through Christ to God–ward:” (2Co 3:4 ASV)
       “but even as we have been approved of God to be intrusted with the gospel, so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God who proveth our hearts.” (1Th 2:4 ASV)
       “For to this end we labor and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of them that believe.” (1Ti 4:10 ASV)
