Luke 11:33 | The Lamp of the Body
33, No one lights a lamp and puts it in a cellar or under a basket. Instead, he sets it on a lampstand, so those who enter can see the light.
34, Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your vision is clear, your whole body also is full of light. But when it is poor, your body is full of darkness
35,, Be careful, then, that the light within you is not darkness.
36, So if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it in darkness, you will be radiant, as though a lamp were shining on you.

9, For evildoers will be cut off, But those who wait for the LORD, they will inherit the land.
