Do we then deem it any great and wonderful thing for the Maker of all things to raise up again those that have piously served Him in the assurance of a good faith, when even by a bird He shows us the mightiness of His power to fulfil His promise? 105 For [the Scripture] saith in a certain place, “Thou shalt raise me up, and I shall confess unto Thee;” 106 and again, “I laid me down, and slept; I awaked, because Thou art with me;” 107 and again, Job says, “Thou shalt raise up this flesh of mine, which has suffered all these things.” 108
Literally, “the mightiness of His promise.”12:106
