About three thousand of the people made the attack, but they were defeated by those at Ai, who killed some thirty-six of them.

[JOSH 7:4-5]

The rich man does wrong and boasts of it, the poor man is wronged and begs forgiveness. As long as the rich man can use you he will enslave you, but when you are exhausted, he will abandon you. As long as you have anything he will speak fair words to you, and with smiles he will win your confidence; When he needs something from you he will cajole you, then without regret he will impoverish you. [SIRACH 13:3-6]

Should you speak sharply to a friend, fear not, you can be reconciled. But a contemptuous insult, a confidence broken, or a treacherous attack will drive away any friend. [SIRACH 22:22]

You who preach against stealing, do you steal? [ROM 2:17-21]

For we write you nothing but what you can read and understand, and I hope that you will understand completely, as you have come to understand us partially, that we are your boast as you also are ours, on the day of (our) Lord Jesus.

To me, the very least of all the holy ones, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the inscrutable riches of Christ, and to bring to light (for all) what is the plan of the mystery hidden from ages past in God who created all things, so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the principalities and authorities in the heavens. This was according to the eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness of speech and confidence of access through faith in him. [EPH 3:8-12]

I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete it until the day of Christ Jesus. [PHIL 1:6]

Every house is founded by someone, but the founder of all is God. Moses was "faithful in all his house" as a "servant" to testify to what would be spoken, but Christ was faithful as a son placed over his house. We are his house, if (only) we hold fast to our confidence and pride in our hope. [HEB 3:4-6]

Therefore, brothers, since through the blood of Jesus we have confidence of entrance into the sanctuary by the new and living way he opened for us through the veil, that is, his flesh, and since we have "a great priest over the house of God," let us approach with a sincere heart and in absolute trust, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water. [HEB 10:19-22]

Therefore, do not throw away your confidence; it will have great recompense. [HEB 10:35]

In this is love brought to perfection among us, that we have confidence on the day of judgment because as he is, so are we in this world. [1JN 4:17]
