Proverbs 10:27-32 The fear of Adonai adds length to life,

This one answered, ‘I will, sir’; but he didn’t go. 31 Which of the two did what his father wanted?” “The first,” they replied. “That’s right!” Yeshua said to them. “I tell you that the tax-collectors and
Matthew 16:21-23 21 From that time on, Yeshua began making it clear to his talmidim (disciples/students) that he had to go to Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) and endure much suffering at the hands of the elders, the head cohanim (high priests) and the Torah-teachers; and that he had to be put to death; but that on the third day, he had to be raised to life. 22 Kefa took him aside and began rebuking him, “Heaven be merciful, Lord!
