    Psalms 31:2-6, 15-16, 20
    1 In thee, O LORD, do I seek refuge; let me never be put to shame; in thy righteousness deliver me!
    2 Incline thy ear to me, rescue me speedily! Be thou a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me!
    3 Yea, thou art my rock and my fortress; for thy name's sake lead me and guide me,
    4 take me out of the net which is hidden for me, for thou art my refuge.
    5 Into thy hand I commit my spirit; thou hast redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God.
    14 But I trust in thee, O LORD, I say, "Thou art my God."
    15 My times are in thy hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies and persecutors!
    19 O how abundant is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for those who fear thee, and wrought for those who take refuge in thee, in the sight of the sons of men!

    John 19:25-27
    25 So the soldiers did this. But standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Mag'dalene.
    26 When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold, your son!"
    27 Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.


    Luke 2:33-35
    33 And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him;
    34 and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, "Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is spoken against
    35 (and a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that thoughts out of many hearts may be revealed."
