Genesis 1:1-31 ESV / 5 helpful votes   In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep.

The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. ... Proverbs 14:12 ESV / 3 helpful votes   There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.

Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.
