Isaiah 61:3; Matthew 5:16; 2 Corinthians 9:13; Philippians 1:11
3 to grant to those who mourn in Zion—
xto give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,
ythe oil of gladness instead of mourning,
the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;
zthat they may be called oaks of righteousness,
16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so nthat1 they may see your good works and ogive glory to your Father who is in heaven.
13 By their approval of this service, fthey1 will glorify God because of your submission that comes from your gconfession of the gospel of Christ, and the generosity of your contribution for them and for all others,
11 filled uwith the fruit of righteousness that comes vthrough Jesus Christ, wto the glory and praise of God.
