The Living Word poured out
From hands and feet
Nailed to the cross.

His grace and truth -Jn1:14

By the stripes of Jesus Christ my LORD
I am healed
Made whole.

Surely He has borne our griefs[02483] (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains[04341] [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed[07495] and made whole.

Is her King no longer there?” “Why have they provoked me to anger with their images, with their worthless foreign idols?” 20″The harvest is past, the summer has ended, and we are not saved.” 21Since my people are crushed, I am crushed; I mourn, and horror grips me. 22Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of my people?
