"Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply
for him" (Acts 8:2). "And we know that in all things God works for
the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to
His purpose" (Romans 8:28). "Praise be to the God and Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all
comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can
comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have
received from God" (2 Corinthians 1:3,4).
