Scriptures

Psalms 34:8 "O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!"

Genesis 3:1-5 "Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, "Indeed, has God said, 'You shall not eat from any tree of the garden'?" The woman said to the serpent, "From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.'" The serpent said to the woman, "You surely will not die! "For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

Psalms 119:68 "You are good and do only good; teach me your decrees."
