Tell her to help me and do her part.” 41 But the Lord replied to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered and anxious about so many things; 42 but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part [that which is to her advantage], which will not be taken away from her.

For You have magnified Your word together with Your name.

When they have heard of the promises of Your mouth [which were fulfilled].
