1 Peter 1:24; James 5:7; 1 Peter 1:25; Isaiah 35:10 [Luther Bibel]

24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:

Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Denn alles fleisch es ist wie gras (1865-1868) from Ein deutsches Requiem, nach Worten der heiligen Schrift [A German Requiem, To Words of the Holy Scriptures] Op. 45, by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)

Deuteronomy 4:7, 9

7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them to thy sons, and thy sons’ sons;

Exodus 15:21,4

21 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
