The Thanksgiving Hymns
Dead Sea Scrolls

Thou wilt conceal the truth until [its] time, [and righteousness] until its appointed moment. Thy rebuke shall become my joy and gladness, and my scourges shall turn to [eternal] healing and everlasting [peace]. The scorn of my enemies shall become a crown of glory, and my stumbling (shall change) to everlasting might. For in Thy ... and my light shall shine forth in Thy glory. For as a light from out of the darkness, so wilt Thou enlighten me. [Thou wilt bring healing to] my wound, and marvellous might in place of my stumbling, and everlasting space to my straitened soul.

Matthew 5:16

New Testament

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its flavor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people! 14 You are the light of the world. A city located on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 People do not light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven. 17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish these things but to fulfill them.
