I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.”
‘As for the promise which I made you when you came out of Egypt, My Spirit is abiding in your midst; do not fear!’
“And the Lord will continually guide you,
And satisfy your desire in scorched places,
And give strength to your bones;
And you will be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.
“Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins;
You will raise up the age-old foundations;
And you will be called the repairer of the breach,
The restorer of the streets in which to dwell.
For the Lord will judge His people
And will have compassion on His servants.
For He has satisfied the thirsty soul,
And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.
“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
