    Psalms is a favorite scripture I love to read, because my faith is God not man.

    Heb. 13:5 - "be content with such things as ye have, for He hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee." For Him to never leave or forsake us - we need to be 'His' in the first place. Acts 2:37-38. "what must we do"? and then Peter told them. Hebrews was written AFTER the church began - to already saved saints. Everything after Acts was to already saved saints in churches.

    Verse 27 urges us to turn away from evil and to do good. If we do this we can live forever.
