Noble plan

Here was my Bible text for today, Isaiah 32.8, quoting from the NRSV. The text is notable for its repetition and for carrying forward not only a plan but a stand:

But those who are noble plan noble things, and by noble things they stand.

Some versions give the idea, in the second phrase, of continuing or carrying through on plans.

The text reminded me a bit of Acts 17.11.

And maybe even Jesus’ word about knowing the tree by its fruit.

Do any others come to your mind?
