7Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God.8He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.9In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.10In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins.
Psalms 72:1-4, 7-8
0A Psalm of Solomon.1Give the king thy justice, O God, and thy righteousness to the royal son!2May he judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with justice!3Let the mountains bear prosperity for the people, and the hills, in righteousness!6May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass, like showers that water the earth!7In his days may righteousness flourish, and peace abound, till the moon be no more!
34As he went ashore he saw a great throng, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.35And when it grew late, his disciples came to him and said, "This is a lonely place, and the hour is now late;36send them away, to go into the country and villages round about and buy themselves something to eat."37But he answered them, "You give them something to eat." And they said to him, "Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread, and give it to them to eat?"38And he said to them, "How many loaves have you? Go and see." And when they had found out, they said, "Five, and two fish."39Then he commanded them all to sit down by companies upon the green grass.40So they sat down in groups, by hundreds and by fifties.41And taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples to set before the people; and he divided the two fish among them all.42And they all ate and were satisfied.43And they took up twelve baskets full of broken pieces and of the fish.44And those who ate the loaves were five thousand men.
