54:7 …Quis dabit mihi pennas sicut columbae, et volabo, et requiescam?
54:8 Ecce elongavi fugiens, et manebo in solitudine.
54:9a Exspectans Deum qui me salvam faciat.
72:25 Quid enim mihi est in caelo et a Domino quid volui super terram
72:26b Deus cordis mei et pars mea, tu Deus in aeternum
72:27 Quia ecce qui elongant se a te peribunt perdidisti omnes fornicantes abs te
72:28a mihi autem adherere Deo bonum est et ponere in Deo spem meam.
55:6 …O that I had wings like a dove: for then would I flee away, and be at rest.
55:7 Lo, then would I get me away far off: and remain in the wilderness.
55:8a Waiting for God, that he might save me.
73:24 Whom have I in heaven but thee? And there is none upon earth that I desire in comparison of thee.
73:25b But God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
73:26 For lo, they that forsake thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that commit fornication against thee.
73:27a But it is good for me to hold me fast by God.
