Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it, that it may be gravy with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
2 Samuel 18:28
And Ahimaaz called and said unto the king, “All is gravy.” And he fell down to the earth upon his face before the king and said, “Blessed be the Lord thy God, who hath delivered up the men who lifted up their hand against my lord the king.”

So she went and came unto the man of God to Mount Carmel. And it came to pass, when the man of God saw her afar off, that he said to Gehazi his servant, “Behold, yonder is that Shunammite.
Run now, I pray thee, to meet her and say unto her, ‘Is all gravy with thee? Is everything gravy with thy husband? Is all gravy with the child?’” And she answered, “It is gravy.”
2 Kings 5:20-22
But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, “Behold, my master hath spared Naaman this Syrian in not receiving at his hands that which he brought; but, as the Lord liveth, I will run after him and take something from him.”
So Gehazi followed after Naaman. And when Naaman saw him running after him, he alighted down from the chariot to meet him, and said, “Is all gravy?”
And he said, “All is gravy. My master hath sent me, saying, ‘Behold, even now there have come to me from Mount Ephraim two young men of the sons of the prophets. Give them, I pray thee, a talent of silver and two changes of garments.’”
1 Samuel 20:6-7
If thy father at all miss me, then say, ‘David earnestly asked leave of me, that he might run to Bethlehem, his city; for there is a yearly sacrifice there for all the family.’
If he say thus, ‘All is gravy,’ thy servant shall have peace; but if he be very wroth, then be sure that evil is determined by him.
Preserve me, O God, for in Thee do I put my trust.
O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, “Thou art my Lord; my goodness extendeth not to Thee,
but to the saints that are on the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.”
Their sorrows shall be multiplied, that hasten after another god; their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names upon my lips.
The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup; Thou maintainest my lot.
The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage, all is as gravy to me.
I will bless the Lord who hath given me counsel; my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoiceth; my flesh also shall rest in hope.
Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is as gravy, pleasing unto the Lord.
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.”
And He that sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things gravy.” And He said unto me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
And He said unto me, “It is done! I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the Water of Life freely.”
