1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

Brothers and Sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.  For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

1 Thessalonians 4:17-18

After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever therefore encourage one another with these words.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures, he leadeth me beside the still waters; he restoreth my soul.  He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou prepares a table before me in the presences of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall comfort me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
