Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage. 
But those who are considered worthy of taking part in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, 
and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection. 
But in the account of the burning bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ 
He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.” 
Luke 20:34-38

"You are righteous, LORD, and your laws are right.  
The statutes you have laid down are righteous; they are fully trustworthy.   
My zeal wears me out, for my enemies ignore your words.  
Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.  
Though I am lowly and despised, I do not forget your precepts.
  Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true. T
rouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands give me delight.
 Your statutes are always righteous; give me understanding that I may live".  Psalm 119: 137-144

"To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable:  “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector.  I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’
“But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’
 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”  Luke 18:9-14

"One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.  Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?”  Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”"
