  • Hindu – Bhagavad Gita
My very being is stricken with the weakness of sentimental pity.
With my mind bewildered about my duty, I ask Thee.
Tell me, for certain, which is better.
I am Thy pupil;
teach me who am seeking refuge in Thee.
  • Buddhist – The Twelve Indispensable Things
(10) Special instructions by a wise guru,
which will enable one to avoid misleading paths,
temptations, pitfalls and dangers,
are indispensable.
  • Zoroastrian
Yea I did conceive of Thee as bountiful O Ahura Mazda
when Thy messenger with Thy good mind
did approach near unto me
and with Thy words did first impress my soul.
That will I do which thou did say unto me was best to be done
O Ahura Mazda.
  • Jewish – Proverbs 3/11
My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord,
neither be weary of his correction:
For whom the Lord loves he corrects,
even as a father the son in whom he delights.
  • Christian – Matthew 26/37
And Jesus took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
Then he said unto them, my soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death. “Wait here, and watch with me”.
And he went a little further and fell on his face and prayed, saying, “O my father, if it be possible,
let this cup pass from me, nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou will”.
Then he returned to the disciples and found them asleep,
and said to Peter, “What, could you not watch with me one hour?”.
Watch and pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit is indeed willing, but the flesh is weak.
He went away again the second time, and prayed saying,
“O my father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, Thy will be done.”
Then he came and found the disciples asleep again.
  • Islamic – Sura 24/6
Deem not the summons of the Apostle among yourselves
like the summons of one of you to another.
  • Sufi – Vadan
Speak to me my Lord,
through the words of thy messenger.
