Psalm 32:8 (Here’s an example of a promise from God taken from the Old Testament.)
Matthew 5:1-2 (And here’s an example of that promise kept, taken from the New Testament. These words, by the way, are the opening of the passage we call the Sermon on the Mount, which comprises the fifth, sixth, and seventh chapters of the Gospel of Matthew.)
