Isaiah 44:21-22 21) Remember these things, Jacob, and Israel; for you are my servant: I have formed you; you are my servant: Israel, you shall not be forgotten by me. 22) I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, your transgressions, and, as a cloud, your sins: return to me; for I have redeemed you.
Matthew 19:16-26 16) Behold, one came to him and said, "Good teacher, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" 17) He said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but one, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments." 18) He said to him, "Which ones?" Jesus said, "You shall not kill. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not offer false testimony. 19) Honor your father and mother. And, you shall love your neighbor as yourself." 20) The young man said to him, "All these things I have observed from my youth. What do I still lack?" 21) Jesus said to him, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." 22) But when the young man heard the saying, he went away sad, for he was one who had great possessions. 23) Jesus said to his disciples, "Most assuredly I say to you, a rich man will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven with difficulty. 24) Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through a needle‘s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." 25) When the disciples heard it, they were exceedingly astonished, saying, "Who then can be saved?" 26) Looking at them, Jesus said, "With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible."
