All His Angels

"And He will send His angels with the great sound of a trumpet . . .

 and they will gather together His elect from the four winds,
from one end of heaven to the other."  Matthew 24:31

"But he said to me, "The LORD, before whom I walk, will send His angel with you
 and prosper your way. . . Genesis 24:40

Bless the LORD, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word,
heeding the voice of His word. . . .

Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, you ministers of His, who do His pleasure. 
Psalm 103:20,21

The angel of the LORD, encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. 
 Psalm 34:7

Praise Him, all His angels, praise Him all His hosts!  Psalm 148:2

Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.  And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the LORD descended from heaven , and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it.  His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.  And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men. But the angel answered and said to the women,  "Do not be afraid for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.  He is not here; for His is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the LORD lay.  And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed, He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him.  Behold, I have told you." So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word. Matthew 28:1-8

Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your habitation, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;  for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.  They shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.  Psalm 91:9-12

Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying
"Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego,
who sent His Angel and delivered His servants who trusted in Him,
and they have frustrated the king's word, and yielded their bodies,
that they should not serve nor worship any god except their own God!  Daniel 3: 28

In all their affliction, He was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence saved them; in His love and in His pity He redeemed them, and He bore them and carried them all the days of old. 
Isaiah 63:9

At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who then is greatest in the kingodm of heaven?"  And Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  And whoever receives one little child like this in My name, receives Me . . . Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.  Matthew 18:1-5, 10

He Owns the Cattle

Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind;

. . . cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth . . .

. . .  each according to its kind; and it was so.

And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind,

. . .  cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind.  And God saw that it was good.  Genesis 1:24,25

Then He will give the rain for your seed with which you sow the ground and bread of the increase of the earth;  it will be fat and plenteous.  In that day your cattle will feed in large pastures.  Isaiah 30:23

And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dried.  Then God spoke to Noah, saying;  "Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons, and your sons' wives with you.  Bring out with you every living thing of all flesh that is with you; birds and cattle and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth, so that they may abound on the earth , and be fruitful and multiply on the earth." Genesis 8:14-17

"Please, take my blessing that is brought to you, because God has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough.  And he urged him, and he took it.   Then Esau said,  "Let us take our journey; let us go and I will go before you."  But Jacob said to him,  "My lord knows that the children are weak, and the flocks and herds which are nursing are with me.  And if the men should drive them hard one day, all the flock will die.  Please, let my lord go on ahead before his servant.  I will lead on slowly at a pace which the livestock and the children are able to endure, until I come to my lord in Seir."  Genesis 33:11-14

"Then it shall come to pass, because you listen to these judgements, and keep and do them, that the LORD your God will keep with you the covenant and the mercy which He swore to your fathers.  And He will love you and bless you and multiply you;  He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine, and your oil, and the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give you.  You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock."  Deuteronomy 7:12-14

For the land which you go to possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you sowed you seed and watered it by foot, as a vegetable garden;  but the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the LORD your God cares; the eyes of the LORD your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year.  And it shall be that if you diligently obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the LORD your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, then I will give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil.  And I will send grass in your fields for your livestock, that you may eat and be filled."  Deuteronomy 11:10-15

Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all the depths;
fire and hail, snow and clouds, stormy wind, fulfilling His word;
mountains and all hills; fruitful trees and all cedars;
beasts and all cattle; creeping things and flying fowl;
kings of the earth and all peoples; princes and all judges of the earth,
both young men and maidens, old men and children. 
Let them praise the name of the LORD, for His name alone is exalted. 
His glory is above the earth and heaven.  Psalm 148:7-13

For every beast of the forest is mine and the cattle on a thousand hills.  Psalm 50:10
