“Everyone who COMES to Me and HEARS My words and ACTS on them,
I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house,
who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred,
the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.
But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly,
is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation;
and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed,
and the ruin of that house was great.”

Afterward he did the same with the fish.

The Cross

Surely our griefs HE HIMSELF BORE,
and our sorrows HE CARRIED;
yet we ourselves esteemed HIM STRICKEN,
SMITTEN of God, and AFFLICTED.
But HE WAS PIERCED THROUGH for our transgressions,
HE WAS CRUSHED for our iniquities;
the CHASTENING for our well-being FELL UPON HIM,
and by HIS SCOURGING we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way; but
THE LORD HAS CAUSED THE INIQUITY OF US ALL
TO FALL ON HIM.
