Leaning on Jesus’ bosom. —JOHN 13:23

—As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you.

—They brought young children to him, that he should touch them. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.

—Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days and have nothing to eat; and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.

—A high Priest . . .touched with the feeling of our infirmities.

—In his love and in his pity he redeemed them.

—I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

—Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.

—The Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
