CREATED FOR THE GLORY OF GOD
Abraham again took a wife, and her name was Keturah. And she bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. Jokshan begot Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, Letushim, and Leummim. And the sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abidah, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah. And ABRAHAM gave all that he had to ISAAC. But Abraham gave gifts to the sons of the concubines which Abraham had; and while he was still living HE SENT THEM EASTWARD, away from Isaac his son, to the country of the EAST. - Genesis 25:1-6 .
For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is HIS MERCY toward those who fear Him; as far as the EAST is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear (are in awe of) Him. - Psalm 103:11-13 .
But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your DESCENDANTS FROM THE EAST, and gather you from the west; I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’ Bring My sons from afar, and My daughters from the ends of the earth—everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him. I, even I, am the LORD, And besides Me there is no SAVIOR." - Isaiah 43:1-2, 5-7, 11 .
