The Sanctity of
formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my motherís womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them."
ďGod created man in His own
image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created
them. Then God blessed them...."
"Before I formed you in the womb I
Before you were born I sanctified you..."
"He gives to all life,
breath, and all things. And He has made from one blood [man] every nation of
men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their
pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings so that they
should seek the Lord..."
"Thus says the
Lord, your Redeemer,
And He who formed you from the womb:
'I am the Lord, who makes all things...'"
"Did not He who
made me in the womb make them?
Did not the same One fashion us in the womb?"
Lord, You are our Father;
We are the clay, and You our potter;
And all we are the work of Your hand."
"Blessed be the
God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every
spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us
in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and
without blame before Him."
"He is the image
of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all
things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and
invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All
things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things,
and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the Body, the Church,
who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may
have the preeminence."
