Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones You have crushed rejoice. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
[Then] With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
Rejoice in the Lord alway. again [we] say, “Rejoice!”
