I am a stranger and a sojourner with you… 010913

Old Testament –

“And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: these were the years of the life of Sarah.  And Sarah died in Kirjatharba; the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan: and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.   And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the sons of Heth, saying, ‘I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.’  And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him, ‘Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.’  And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth.”  Genesis 23:1-7 (KJV)

New Testament –

“And He entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into His own city.  And, behold, they brought to Him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; ‘Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.’  And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, ‘This man blasphemeth.’  And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, ‘Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?  For whether is easier, to say, ‘Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, ‘Arise, and walk?  But that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith He to the sick of the palsy,) ‘Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.’  And he arose, and departed to his house.  But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.”  Matthew 9:1-7 (KJV)
