8But You, O Lord, will laugh at them [in scorn]; You will hold all the nations in derision
9O my Strength, I will watch and give heed to You and sing praises; for God is my Defense (my Protector and High Tower). 10
My God in His mercy and steadfast love will meet me; God will let me look [triumphantly] on my enemies (those who lie in wait for me).
16But I will sing of Your mighty strength and power; yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy and loving-kindness in the morning; for You have been to me a defense (a fortress and a high tower) and a refuge in the day of my distress.
17Unto You, O my Strength, I will sing praises; for God is my Defense, my Fortress, and High Tower, the God Who shows me mercy and steadfast love.

33And He replied, Who are My mother and My brothers?
34And looking around on those who sat in a circle about Him, He said, See! Here are My mother and My brothers;
35For whoever does the things God wills is My brother and sister and mother!
