The fruit ot the Spirit is goodness.
Be ye ... followers of God, as dear children. — Love your enemies, blessthem that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for themwhich despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the childrenof your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the eviland on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. — Be yetherefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.The fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth.After that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to hismercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of theHoly Ghost; which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour. — The L
is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all hisworks. — He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all,how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Eben-ezer ... Hitherto hath the Lord helped us.
I was brought low, and he helped me. — Blessed be the L
, because hehath heard the voice of my supplications. The L
is my strength and myshield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heartgreatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.It is better to trust in the L
than to put confidence in man. It is better totrust in the L
than to put confidence in princes. — Happy is he thathath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the L
his God. — He led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation. — There failed not ought of any good thing which the L
hath spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing?And they said, Nothing. — Because thou hast been my help, therefore inthe shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
