Sirach 2

Sir 2:7  Ye that fear the Lord, wait for his mercy: and go not aside from him lest ye fall.
Sir 2:8  Ye that fear the Lord, believe him: and your reward shall not be made void.
Sir 2:9  Ye that fear the Lord hope in him, and mercy shall come to you for your delight.
Sir 2:10  Ye that fear the Lord, love him, and your hearts shall be enlightened.
Sir 2:11  My children behold the generations of men: and know ye that no one hath hoped in the Lord, and hath been confounded.
Sir 2:12  For who hath continued in his commandment, and hath been forsaken? or who hath called upon him, and he despised him?
Sir 2:13  For God is compassionate and merciful, and will forgive sins in the day of tribulation: and he is a protector to all that seek him in truth.

We go back here to the fear of the Lord idea and how important it is to our relationship with Him.  We fear the Lord, we believe Him, and we hope in Him.  This always turns out well!
