Jeremiah 31:39

The surveyor's line shall again extend straight forward over the hill Gareb; then it shall turn toward Goath.

അളവുചരടു പിന്നെയും നേരെ ഗാരേബ് കുന്നിലേക്കു ചെന്നു ഗോവഹിലേക്കു തിരിയും. ശവങ്ങൾക്കും വെണ്ണീരിന്നും ഉള്ള താഴ്വര മുഴുവനും കിദ്രോൻ തോടുവരെയും കിഴക്കോട്ടു കുതിരവാതിലിന്റെ കോണുവരെയും ഉള്ള നിലങ്ങൾ മുഴുവനും യഹോവേക്കു വിശുദ്ധമായിരിക്കും; അതിനെ ഇനി ഒരുനാളും പറിച്ചുകളകയില്ല, ഇടിച്ചുകളയുമില്ല.

Psalms 5:8

Lead me, O LORD, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; Make Your way straight before my face.

യഹോവേ, എന്റെ ശത്രുക്കൾനിമിത്തം നിന്റെ നീതിയാൽ എന്നെ നടത്തേണമേ; എന്റെ മുമ്പിൽ നിന്റെ വഴിയെ നിരപ്പാക്കേണമേ.

Joshua 6:5

It shall come to pass, when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, that all the people shall shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city will fall down flat. And the people shall go up every man straight before him."
