The LORD is my light and my salvation--
whom shall I fear?
The LORD will be your everlasting light,
and your God will be your glory.
The people living in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned."
In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
1 Peter 2:9
