1 Samuel 2:30; John 12:26

30 Therefore the Lord, the God of Israel, declares: vI promised that your house and the house of your father should go in and out before me forever, wbut now the Lord declares: Far be it from me, for those who honor me I will honor, and those who despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

26 If anyone serves me, he must ofollow me; and pwhere I am, there will my servant be also. qIf anyone serves me, rthe Father will honor him.
