Colossians 3:21

Paul is writing here—as he often is throughout his letters—about the question of how life should be lived until the return of Jesus Christ, which he thought would happen very soon.

Proverbs 29:18

The question here, I think, is what exactly is meant by 'prophecy'? The surrounding verses offer variations on a single theme: negative choices bring negative results; loving choices bring positive results.

Psalm 46:10

Psalm 46 is a hymn of praise and a strong affirmation of Truth. It begins, "God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear" (Ps. 46:1). And it concludes with the familiar lines quoted above.

Isaiah 53:4-5

The passage above is from the King James translation instead of the New Revised Standard Version that I use. The KJV is the one I found that uses the word 'stripes,' which is what you asked about.
