SEPTEMBER 6

PSALMS: 6, 36, 66, 96, 126

PROVERBS: 6

OLD TESTAMENT: DANIEL 2:24 – 3:30

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 PETER 4:7 – 5:14

PSALMS: 6

1 For the leader.

With stringed instruments.

On sh’minit [low-pitched musical instruments?].

A psalm of David:

ADONAI, don’t rebuke me in your anger,

don’t discipline me in the heat of your fury. 

2 Be gracious to me, ADONAI,

because I am withering away;

heal me, ADONAI, because my bones are shaking; 

3 I am completely terrified;

and you, ADONAI – how long? 

4 Come back, ADONAI, and rescue me!

Save me for the sake of your grace; 

5 for in death, no one remembers you;

in Sh’ol, who will praise you? 

6 I am worn out with groaning;

all night I drench my bed with tears,

flooding my couch till it swims. 

7 My vision is darkened with anger;

it grows weak because of all my foes. 

8 Get away from me, all you workers of evil!

For ADONAI has heard the sound of my weeping, 

9 ADONAI has heard my pleading,

ADONAI will accept my prayer. 

10 All my enemies will be confounded, completely terrified;

they will turn back and be suddenly put to shame.

PSALMS: 36

1 For the leader.

By David, the servant of ADONAI:

Crime speaks to the wicked.

I perceive this in my heart;

before his eyes there is no fear of God. 

2 For, the way he sees it, crime makes his life easy that is,

until his wrongs are discovered;

then, he is hated. 

3 His words are wrong and deceitful;

he has stopped being wise and doing good. 

4 He devises trouble as he lies in bed;

so set is he on his own bad way that he doesn’t hate evil. 

5 ADONAI, in the heavens is your grace;

your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 

6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God,

your judgments are like the great deep.

You save man and beast, ADONAI. 

7 How precious, God, is your grace!

People take refuge in the shadow of your wings, 

8 they feast on the rich bounty of your house,

and you have them drink from the stream of your delights. 

9 For with you is the fountain of life;

in your light we see light. 

10 Continue your grace to those who know you

and your righteousness to the upright in heart. 

11 Don’t let the foot of the proud tread on me

or the hands of the wicked drive me away. 

12 There they lie fallen, those evildoers,

flung down and unable to rise.

PSALMS: 66

1 For the leader.

A song.

A psalm:

Shout to God, all the earth! 

2 Sing the glory of his name,

make his praise glorious. 

3 Tell God, “How awesome are your deeds!

At your great power, your enemies cringe. 

4 All the earth bows down to you, sings praises to you,

sings praises to your name.”

(Selah) 

5 Come and see what God has done,

his awesome dealings with humankind. 

6 He turned the sea into dry land.

They passed through the river on foot;

there we rejoiced in him.

7  With his power he rules forever;

his eyes keep watch on the nations.

Let no rebel arise to challenge him. 

8 Bless our God, you peoples!

Let the sound of his praise be heard! 

9 He preserves our lives and keeps our feet from stumbling.

(Selah) 

10 For you, God, have tested us,

refined us as silver is refined. 

11 You brought us into the net

and bound our bodies fast. 

12 You made men ride over our heads;

we went through fire and water.

But you brought us out to a place of plenty. 

13 I will come into your house with burnt offerings,

I will fulfill my vows to you, 

14 those my lips pronounced and my mouth spoke

when I was in distress. 

15 I will offer you burnt offerings of fattened animals,

along with the sweet smoke of rams;

I will offer bulls and goats. (Selah) 

16 Come and listen, all you who fear God,

and I will tell what he has done for me. 

17 I cried out to him with my mouth,

his praise was on my tongue. 

18 Had I cherished evil thoughts,

Adonai would not have listened. 

19 But in fact, God did listen;

he paid attention to my prayer. 

20 Blessed be God, who did not reject my prayer

or turn his grace away from me.

PSALMS: 96

1 Sing to ADONAI a new song!

Sing to ADONAI, all the earth! 

2 Sing to ADONAI, bless his name!

Proclaim his victory day after day!

3 Declare his glory among the nations,

his wonders among all peoples! 

4 For ADONAI is great, and greatly to be praised;

he is to be feared more than all gods. 

5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols,

but ADONAI made the heavens. 

6 In his presence are honor and majesty;

in his sanctuary, strength and splendor. 

7 Give ADONAI his due, you families from the peoples;

give ADONAI his due of glory and strength; 

8 give ADONAI the glory due to his name;

bring an offering, and enter his courtyards. 

9 Worship ADONAI in holy splendor;

tremble before him, all the earth! 

10 Say among the nations, “ADONAI is king!

“The world is firmly established, immovable.

He will judge the peoples fairly. 

11 Let the heavens rejoice; let the earth be glad;

let the sea roar, and everything in it; 

12 let the fields exult and all that is in them.

Then all the trees in the forest will sing

13 before ADONAI, because he has come, he has come to judge the earth;

he will judge the world rightly and the peoples with his faithfulness.

PSALMS: 126

1 When the LORD brought back those who returned to Tziyon,

We were like those who dream. 

2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter,

And our tongue with singing.

Then said they among the nations,

“The LORD has done great things for them.” 

3 The LORD has done great things for us,

And we are glad. 

4 Restore our fortunes again, LORD,

Like the streams in the Negev. 

5 Those who sow in tears will reap in joy. 

6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed for sowing,

Will assuredly come again with joy, carrying his sheaves.

PROVERBS: 6

1 My son, if you have become collateral for your neighbor,

If you have struck your hands in pledge for a stranger; 

2 You are trapped by the words of your mouth.

You are ensnared with the words of your mouth. 

3 Do this now, my son, and deliver yourself,

Seeing you have come into the hand of your neighbor.

Go, humble yourself. Press your plea with your neighbor. 

4 Give no sleep to your eyes,

Nor slumber to your eyelids. 

5 Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter,

Like a bird from the snare of the fowler. 

6 Go to the ant, you sluggard.

Consider her ways, and be wise; 

7  Which having no chief, Overseer, or ruler, 

8 Provides her bread in the summer,

And gathers her food in the harvest. 

9 How long will you sleep, sluggard?

When will you arise out of your sleep? 

10 A little sleep, a little slumber,

A little folding of the hands to sleep: 

11 So your poverty will come as a robber,

And your scarcity as an armed man. 

12 A worthless person, a man of iniquity,

Is he who walks with a perverse mouth; 

13 Who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet,

Who motions with his fingers; 

14 In whose heart is perverseness,

Who devises evil continually,

Who always sows discord. 

15 Therefore his calamity will come suddenly.

He will be broken suddenly, and that without remedy. 

16 There are six things which the LORD hates;

Yes, seven which are an abomination to him:

17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue,

Hands that shed innocent blood;

18 A heart that devises wicked schemes,

Feet that are swift in running to mischief, 

19 A false witness who utters lies,

And he who sows discord among brothers. 

20 My son, keep your father’s mitzvah,

And don’t forsake your mother’s teaching. 

21 Bind them continually on your heart.

Tie them around your neck. 

22 When you walk, it will lead you.

When you sleep, it will watch over you.

When you awake, it will talk with you. 

23 For the mitzvah is a lamp,

And the law is light.

Reproofs of instruction are the way of life, 

24 To keep you from the immoral woman,

From the flattery of the wayward wife’s tongue. 

25 Don’t lust after her beauty in your heart,

Neither let her captivate you with her eyelids. 

26 For a prostitute reduces you to a piece of bread.

The adulteress hunts for your precious life. 

27 Can a man scoop fire into his lap,

And his clothes not be burned?

28 Or can one walk on hot coals,

And his feet not be scorched?

29 So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife.

Whoever touches her will not be unpunished. 

30 Men don’t despise a thief,

If he steals to satisfy himself when he is hungry: 

31 But if he be found, he shall restore seven times.

He shall give all the wealth of his house. 

32 He who commits adultery with a woman is void of understanding.

He who does it destroys his own soul. 

33 He will get wounds and dishonor.

His reproach will not be wiped away. 

34 For jealousy arouses the fury of the husband.

He won’t spare in the day of vengeance. 

35 He won’t regard any ransom,

Neither will he rest content, though you give many gifts.

OLD TESTAMENT: DANIEL 2:24 – 3:30

2:24 Therefore Daniyel went in to Aryokh, whom the king had appointed to destroy the wise men of Bavel; he went and said thus to him: Don’t destroy the wise men of Bavel; bring me in before the king, and I will show to the king the interpretation. 25 Then Aryokh brought in Daniyel before the king in haste, and said thus to him, I have found a man of the children of the captivity of Yehudah, who will make known to the king the interpretation. 26 The king answered Daniyel, whose name was Belteshatztzar, Are you able to make known to me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation of it? 27 Daniyel answered before the king, and said, The secret which the king has demanded can neither wise men, enchanters, magicians, nor soothsayers, show to the king; 28 but there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and he has made known to the king Nevukhadnetztzar what shall be in the latter days. Your dream, and the visions of your head on your bed, are these: 29 as for you, O king, your thoughts came [into your mind] on your bed, what should happen hereafter; and he who reveals secrets has made known to you what shall happen. 30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but to the intent that the interpretation may be made known to the king, and that you may know the thoughts of your heart. 31 You, O king, saw, and, behold, a great image. This image, which was mighty, and whose brightness was excellent, stood before you; and the aspect of it was awesome. 32 As for this image, its head was of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of brass, 33 its legs of iron, its feet part of iron, and part of clay. 34 You saw until a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet that were of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. 35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken in pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that no place was found for them: and the stone that struck the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole eretz. 36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation of it before the king. 37  You, O king, are king of kings, to whom the God of heaven has given the kingdom, the power, and the strength, and the glory; 38 and wherever the children of men dwell, the animals of the field and the birds of the sky has he given into your hand, and has made you to rule over them all: you are the head of gold. 39 After you shall arise another kingdom inferior to you; and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the eretz. 40 The fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron, because iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things; and as iron that crushes all these, shall it break in pieces and crush. 41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, because you saw the iron mixed with miry clay. 42 As the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43 Whereas you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men; but they shall not cling to one another, even as iron does not mingle with clay. 44 In the days of those kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed, nor shall the sovereignty of it be left to another people; but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. 45 Because you saw that a stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God has made known to the king what shall happen hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation of it sure. 46 Then the king Nevukhadnetztzar fell on his face, and worshiped Daniyel, and commanded that they should offer an offering and sweet odors to him. 47 The king answered to Daniyel, and said, Of a truth your God is the God of gods, and the Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing you have been able to reveal this secret. 48 Then the king made Daniyel great, and gave him many great gifts, and made him to rule over the whole province of Bavel, and to be chief governor over all the wise men of Bavel. 49 Daniyel requested of the king, and he appointed Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, over the affairs of the province of Bavel: but Daniyel was in the gate of the king.

3:1 Nevukhadnetztzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was sixty cubits, and the breadth of it six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Bavel. 2 Then Nevukhadnetztzar the king sent to gather together the satraps, the deputies, and the governors, the judges, the treasurers, the counselors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nevukhadnetztzar the king had set up. 3 Then the satraps, the deputies, and the governors, the judges, the treasurers, the counselors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together to the dedication of the image that Nevukhadnetztzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nevukhadnetztzar had set up. 4 Then the herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, peoples, nations, and languages, 5that whenever you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe, and all kinds of music, you fall down and worship the golden image that Nevukhadnetztzar the king has set up; 6 and whoever doesn’t fall down and worships shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. 7 Therefore at that time, when all the peoples heard the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe, and all kinds of music, all the peoples, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshiped the golden image that Nevukhadnetztzar the king had set up. 8 Therefore at that time certain Kasdim came near, and brought accusation against the Yehudim. 9 They answered Nevukhadnetztzar the king, O king, live for ever. 10You, O king, have made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe, and all kinds of music, shall fall down and worship the golden image; 11 and whoever doesn’t fall down and worships, shall be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. 12 There are certain Yehudim whom you have appointed over the affairs of the province of Bavel: Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego; these men, O king, have not regarded you: they don’t serve your gods, nor worship the golden image which you have set up. 13 Then Nevukhadnetztzar in [his] rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego. Then they brought these men before the king. 14Nevukhadnetztzar answered them, Is it on purpose, Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, that you don’t serve my god, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? 15 Now if you are ready whenever you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe, and all kinds of music to you fall down and worship the image which I have made, [well]: but if you don’t worship, you shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that god that shall deliver you out of my hands? 16Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego answered the king, Nevukhadnetztzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If it be [so], our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace; and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king. 18 But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods, nor worship the golden image which you have set up. 19 Then was Nevukhadnetztzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego: [therefore] he spoke, and commanded that they should heat the furnace seven times more than it was wont to be heated. 20 He commanded certain mighty men who were in his army to bind Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, [and] to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. 21Then these men were bound in their pants, their tunics, and their mantles, and their [other] garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 22 Therefore because the king’s mitzvah was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego. 23 These three men, Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.24 Then Nevukhadnetztzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste: he spoke and said to his counselors, Didn’t we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered the king, True, O king. 25 He answered, Look, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the aspect of the fourth is like a son of the gods. 26 Then Nevukhadnetztzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace: he spoke and said, Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, you servants of Ha`Elyon God, come forth, and come here. Then Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego came forth out of the midst of the fire. 27 The satraps, the deputies, and the governors, and the king’s counselors, being gathered together, saw these men, that the fire had no power on their bodies, nor was the hair of their head singed, neither were their pants changed, nor had the smell of fire passed on them. 28 Nevukhadnetztzar spoke and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, who has sent his angel, and delivered his servants who trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and have yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. 29 Therefore I make a decree, that every people, nation, and language, which speak anything amiss against the God of Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill; because there is no other god who is able to deliver after this sort.30 Then the king promoted Shadrakh, Meshakh, and `Aved-Nego in the province of Bavel.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 PETER 4:7 – 5:14

4:7  But the end of all things is near. Therefore be of sound mind, self-controlled, and sober in prayer. 8 And above all things be earnest in your love among yourselves, for love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Be hospitable one to another without grumbling. 

10 According as each has received a gift, be ministering it among yourselves, as good stewards of the grace of God in its various forms. 11 If any man speaks, let it be as it were oracles of God. If any man serves, let it be as of the strength which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Yeshua the Messiah, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amein. 12 Beloved, don’t be astonished at the fiery trial which has come upon you, to test you, as though a strange thing happened to you. 13 But because you are partakers of Messiah’s sufferings, rejoice; that at the revelation of his glory also you may rejoice with exceeding joy. 14 If you are insulted for the name of Messiah, blessed are you; because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. On their part he is blasphemed, but on your part he is glorified. 15 For let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evil doer, or as a meddler in other men’s matters. 16 But if one of you suffers for being a Messianic, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God in this matter. 17 For the time [has come] for judgment to begin at the house of God. If it begins first at us, what will happen to those who don’t obey the Good News of God? 18 “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will happen to the ungodly and the sinner?” 19 Therefore let them also who suffer according to the will of God in doing good entrust their souls to him, as to a faithful Creator.

5:1 I exhort the Zakenim among you, as a fellow elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah, and who will also share in the glory that will be revealed. 2 Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, exercising the oversight, not under compulsion, but voluntarily, not for dishonest gain, but willingly; 3 neither as lording it over the charge allotted to you, but making yourselves examples to the flock. 4 When the chief Shepherd will be revealed, you will receive the crown of glory that doesn’t fade away. 5 Likewise, you younger ones, be subject to the elder. Yes, all of you gird yourselves with humility, to subject yourselves to one another; for “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time; 7 casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you. 8 Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary the devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Withstand him steadfast in your faith, knowing that your brothers who are in the world are undergoing the same sufferings. 10 But may the God of all grace (who called you to his eternal glory by Messiah Yeshua), after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 11 To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amein. 12 Through Sila, our faithful brother, as I consider him, I have written to you briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God in which you stand. 13 She who is in Bavel, elect together with you, greets you; and so does Mark, my son. 14 Greet one another with a kiss of love. Shalom be to you all who are in Messiah Yeshua. Amein. ‘s Second Letter

SEPTEMBER 5

PSALMS: 5, 35, 65, 95, 125

PROVERBS: 5

OLD TESTAMENT: DANIEL 1:1 – 2:23

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 PETER 3:8 – 4:6

PSALMS: 5

1 For the leader.

On wind instruments.

A psalm of David:

Give ear to my words,

ADONAI, consider my inmost thoughts. 

2 Listen to my cry for help,

my king and my God, for I pray to you. 

3 ADONAI, in the morning you will hear my voice;

in the morning I lay my needs before you and wait expectantly. 

4 For you are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness;

evil cannot remain with you. 

5 Those who brag cannot stand before your eyes,

you hate all who do evil, 

6 you destroy those who tell lies,

ADONAI detests men of blood and deceivers. 

7 But I can enter your house because of your great grace and love;

I will bow down toward your holy temple in reverence for you. 

8 Lead me, ADONAI, in your righteousness

because of those lying in wait for me;

make your way straight before me. 

9 For in their mouths there is nothing sincere,

within them are calamities, their throats are open tombs,

they flatter with their tongues. 

10 God, declare them guilty!

Let them fall through their own intrigues,

For their many crimes, throw them down;

since they have rebelled against you.

11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice,

let them forever shout for joy!

Shelter them;

and they will be glad,

those who love your name.

12 For you, ADONAI, bless the righteous;

you surround them with favor like a shield.

PSALMS: 35

1 By David: ADONAI, oppose those who oppose me;

fight against those who fight against me. 

2 Grasp your shield and protective gear,

and rise to my defense. 

3 Brandish spear and battle-axe against my pursuers;

let me hear you say, “I am your salvation.” 

4 May those who seek my life be disgraced and put to confusion;

may those who are plotting harm for me be repulsed and put to shame. 

5 May they be like chaff before the wind,

with the angel of ADONAI to drive them on. 

6 May their way be dark and slippery,

with the angel of ADONAI to pursue them. 

7 For unprovoked, they hid their net over a pit;

unprovoked, they dug it for me. 

8 May destruction come over him unawares.

May the net he concealed catch himself;

may he fall into it and be destroyed. 

9 Then I will be joyful in ADONAI,

I will rejoice in his salvation. 

10 All my bones will say, “Who is like you?

Who can rescue the weak from those stronger than they,

the poor and needy from those who exploit them?” 

11 Malicious witnesses come forward,

asking me things about which I know nothing. 

12 They repay me evil for good;

it makes me feel desolate as a parent bereaved. 

13 But I, when they were ill, wore sackcloth;

I put myself out and fasted;

I can pray that what I prayed for them might also happen to me. 

14 I behaved as I would for my friend or my brother;

I bent down in sorrow as if mourning my mother. 

15 But when I stumble, they gather in glee;

they gather against me and strike me unawares;

they tear me apart unceasingly. 

16 With ungodly mocking and grimacing,

they grind their teeth at me. 

17 Adonai, how much longer will you look on?

Rescue me from their assaults, save the one life I have from the lions! 

18 I will give you thanks in the great assembly,

I will give you praise among huge crowds of people.

19 Don’t let those who are wrongfully my enemies gloat over me;

and those who hate me unprovoked -don’t let them smirk at me. 

20 For they don’t speak words of peace but devise ways

to deceive the peaceful of the land. 

21 They shout to accuse me,

“Aha! Aha! we saw you with our own eyes!” 

22 You saw them, ADONAI;

don’t stay silent.

Adonai, don’t stay far away from me. 

23 Wake up! Get up, my God, my Lord!

Defend me and my cause! 

24 Give judgment for me, ADONAI, my God,

as your righteousness demands.

Don’t let them gloat over me. 

25 Don’t let them say to themselves,

“Aha! We got what we wanted!”

or say, “We swallowed them up!” 

26 May those who gloat over my distress be disgraced and humiliated.

May those who aggrandize themselves at my expense be covered

with shame and confusion. 

27  But may those who delight in my righteousness

shout for joy and be glad!

Let them say always, “How great is ADONAI,

who delights in the peace of his servant!

“Then my tongue will tell of your righteousness

and praise you all day long.

PSALMS: 65

1 For the leader. A psalm of David.

A song: To you, God, in Tziyon, silence is praise;

and vows to you are to be fulfilled. 

2 You who listen to prayer,

to you all living creatures come. 

3 When deeds of wickedness overwhelm me,

you will atone for our crimes. 

4 How blessed are those you choose and bring near,

so that they can remain in your courtyards!

We will be satisfied with the goodness of your house,

the Holy Place of your temple. 

5 It is just that you answer us with awesome deeds,

God of our salvation, you in whom all put their trust,

to the ends of the earth and on distant seas. 

6 By your strength you set up the mountains.

You are clothed with power. 

7 You still the roaring of the seas,

their crashing waves, and the peoples’ turmoil. 

8 This is why those living at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your signs.

The places where the sun rises and sets you cause to sing for joy. 

9 You care for the earth and water it, you enrich it greatly;

with the river of God, full of water,

you provide them grain and prepare the ground. 

10 Soaking its furrows and settling its soil,

you soften it with showers and bless its growth. 

11 You crown the year with your goodness,

your tracks overflow with richness. 

12The desert pastures drip water,

the hills are wrapped with joy, 

13 the meadows are clothed with flocks and the valleys blanketed with grain,

so they shout for joy and break into song.

PSALMS: 95

1 Come, let’s sing to ADONAI!

Let’s shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation! 

2 Let’s come into his presence with thanksgiving;

let’s shout for joy to him with songs of praise. 

3 For ADONAI is a great God,

a great king greater than all gods. 

4 He holds the depths of the earth in his hands;

the mountain peaks too belong to him. 

5 The sea is his – he made it -and

his hands shaped the dry land. 

6 Come, let’s bow down and worship;

let’s kneel before ADONAI who made us. 

7 For he is our God, and we are the people in his pasture, the sheep in his care.

If only today you would listen to his voice: 

8 “Don’t harden your hearts, as you did at M’rivah,

as you did on that day at Massah in the desert, 

9 when your fathers put me to the test;

they challenged me, even though they saw my work. 

10 For forty years I loathed that generation;

I said, ‘This is a people whose hearts go astray,

they don’t understand how I do things.’ 

11 Therefore I swore in my anger

that they would not enter my rest.”

PSALMS: 125

1 A song of ascents:

Those who trust in ADONAI are like Mount Tziyon,

which cannot be moved but remains forever. 

2 Yerushalayim!

Mountains all around it!

Thus ADONAI is around his people henceforth and forever. 

3 For the scepter of wickedness will not rule the inheritance of the righteous,

so that the righteous will not themselves turn their hands to evil. 

4 Do good, ADONAI, to the good, to those upright in their hearts. 

5 But as for those who turn aside to their own crooked ways,

may ADONAI turn them away, along with those who do evil.

Shalom on Isra’el!

PROVERBS: 5

1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom;

incline your ear to my understanding; 

2 so that you will preserve discretion

and your lips keep watch over knowledge. 

3 For the lips of a woman who is a stranger drop honey,

her mouth is smoother than oil; 

4 but in the end she is as bitter as wormwood,

sharp as a double-edged sword.

5 Her feet go down to death, her steps lead straight to Sh’ol; 

6she doesn’t walk the level path of life -her course wanders all over,

but she doesn’t know it. 

7 So now, children, listen to me;

don’t turn away from what I am saying: 

8 distance your way from her,

stay far from the door of her house; 

9 so that you won’t give your vigor to others

and your years to someone who is cruel, 

10 so strangers won’t be filled with your strength

and what you worked for go to a foreign house. 

11 Then, when your flesh and bones have shrunk,

at the end of your life, you would moan, 

12 “How I hated discipline!

My whole being despised reproof, 

13 I ignored what my teachers said,

I didn’t listen to my instructors. 

14 I took part in almost every kind of evil,

and the whole community knew it.” 

15 Drink the water from your own cistern,

fresh water from your own well. 

16 Let what your springs produce be dispersed outside,

streams of water flowing in the streets; 

17 but let them be for you alone

and not for strangers with you. 

18 Let your fountain, the wife of your youth, be blessed;

find joy in her 

19 a lovely deer, a graceful fawn;

let her breasts satisfy you at all times,

always be infatuated with her love. 

20 My son, why be infatuated with an unknown woman?

Why embrace the body of a loose woman? 

21 For ADONAI is watching a man’s ways;

he surveys all his paths. 

22 A wicked person’s own crimes will trap him,

he will be held fast by the ropes of his sin. 

23 He will die from lack of discipline;

the magnitude of his folly will make him totter and fall.

OLD TESTAMENT: DANIEL 1:1 – 2:23

1:1 In the third year of the reign of Yehoiakim king of Yehudah came Nevukhadnetztzar king of Bavel to Yerushalayim, and besieged it. 2 The Lord gave Yehoiakim king of Yehudah into his hand, with part of the vessels of the house of God; and he carried them into the land of Shin`ar to the house of his god: and he brought the vessels into the treasure-house of his god. 3 The king spoke to Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring in [certain] of the children of Yisra’el, even of the seed royal and of the nobles; 4 youths in whom was no blemish, but well-favored, and skillful in all wisdom, and endowed with knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability to stand in the king’s palace; and that he should teach them the learning and the language of the Kasdim. 5 The king appointed for them a daily portion of the king’s dainties, and of the wine which he drank, and that they should be nourished three years; that at the end of it they should stand before the king. 6 Now among these were, of the children of Yehudah, Daniyel, Hananyah, Misha’el, and `Azaryah. 7  The prince of the eunuchs gave names to them: to Daniyel he gave [the name of] Belteshatztzar; and to Hananyah, [of] Shadrakh; and to Misha’el, [of] Meshakh; and to `Azaryah, [of] `Aved-Nego. 8 But Daniyel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the king’s dainties, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. 9 Now God made Daniyel to find kindness and compassion in the sight of the prince of the eunuchs. 10 The prince of the eunuchs said to Daniyel, I fear my lord the king, who has appointed your food and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse looking than the youths who are of your own age? so would you endanger my head with the king. 11 Then said Daniyel to the steward whom the prince of the eunuchs had appointed over Daniyel, Hananyah, Misha’el, and `Azaryah: 12 Prove your servants, I beg you, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. 13 Then let our faces be looked on before you, and the face of the youths who eat of the king’s dainties; and as you see, deal with your servants. 14 So he listened to them in this matter, and proved them ten days. 15 At the end of ten days their faces appeared fairer, and they were fatter in flesh, than all the youths who ate of the king’s dainties. 16 So the steward took away their dainties, and the wine that they should drink, and gave them pulse. 17 Now as for these four youths, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniyel had understanding in all visions and dreams. 18 At the end of the days which the king had appointed for bringing them in, the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nevukhadnetztzar. 19 The king talked with them; and among them all was found none like Daniyel, Hananyah, Misha’el, and `Azaryah: therefore stood they before the king. 20 In every matter of wisdom and understanding, concerning which the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters who were in all his realm. 21 Daniyel continued even to the first year of king Koresh.

2:1 In the second year of the reign of Nevukhadnetztzar, Nevukhadnetztzar dreamed dreams; and his spirit was troubled, and his sleep went from him. 2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the enchanters, and the sorcerers, and the Kasdim, to tell the king his dreams. So they came in and stood before the king. 3 The king said to them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit is troubled to know the dream. 4 Then spoke the Kasdim to the king in the Arammian language, O king, live forever: tell your servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation. 5 The king answered the Kasdim, The thing is gone from me: if you don’t make known to me the dream and the interpretation of it, you shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill. 6 But if you show the dream and the interpretation of it, you shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honor: therefore show me the dream and the interpretation of it. 7  They answered the second time and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation. 8 The king answered, I know of a certainty that you would gain time, because you see the thing is gone from me. 9 But if you don’t make known to me the dream, there is but one law for you; for you have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, until the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that you can show me the interpretation of it. 10 The Kasdim answered before the king, and said, There is not a man on the eretz who can show the king’s matter, because no king, lord, or ruler, has asked such a thing of any magician, or enchanter, or Kasdai. 11 It is a rare thing that the king requires, and there is no other who can show it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh. 12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Bavel. 13 So the decree went forth, and the wise men were to be slain; and they sought Daniyel and his companions to be slain. 14 Then Daniyel returned answer with counsel and prudence to Aryokh the captain of the king’s guard, who was gone forth to kill the wise men of Bavel; 15 he answered Aryokh the king’s captain, Why is the decree so urgent from the king? Then Aryokh made the thing known to Daniyel. 16 Daniyel went in, and desired of the king that he would appoint him a time, and he would show the king the interpretation. 17 Then Daniyel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananyah, Misha’el, and `Azaryah, his companions: 18 that they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniyel and his companions should nor perish with the rest of the wise men of Bavel. 19 Then was the secret revealed to Daniyel in a vision of the night. Then Daniyel blessed the God of heaven. 20 Daniyel answered, Blessed be the name of God forever and ever; for wisdom and might are his. 21 He changes the times and the seasons; he removes kings, and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to those who have understanding; 22 he reveals the deep and secret things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him. 23 I thank you, and praise you, you God of my fathers, who have given me wisdom and might, and have now made known to me what we desired of you; for you have made known to us the king’s matter.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 PETER 3:8 – 4:6

3:8 Finally, be all like-minded, compassionate, loving as brothers, tenderhearted, courteous, 9 not rendering evil for evil, or reviling for reviling; but instead blessing; knowing that to this were you called, that you may inherit a blessing. 10 For, “He who would love life, And see good days, Let him keep his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit. 11 Let him turn away from evil, and do good. Let him seek shalom, and pursue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And his ears open to their prayer; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” 13 Now who is he who will harm you, if you become imitators of that which is good? 14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “Don’t fear what they fear, neither be troubled.” 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, with humility and fear: 16 having a good conscience; that, while you are spoken against as evildoers, they may be put to shame who revile your good manner of life in Messiah. 17 For it is better, if the will of God should so will, that you suffer for doing well than for doing evil. 18 Because Messiah also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring you to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; 19 in which he also went and preached to the spirits in prison, 20 who before were disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited patiently in the days of Noach, while the teivah was being built. In it, few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water. 21 This is a symbol of immersion, which now saves you – not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah, 22 who is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven, angels and authorities and powers being made subject to him.

4:1 Forasmuch then as Messiah suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind; for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin; 2 that you no longer should live the rest of your time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. 3 For we have spent enough of our past time living in doing the desire of the Goyim, and to have walked in lasciviousness, lusts, drunken binges, orgies, carousings, and abominable idolatries. 4 They think it is strange that you don’t run with them into the same excess of riot, blaspheming: 5 who will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. 6 For to this end was the Good News preached even to the dead, that they might be judged indeed as men in the flesh, but live as to God in the spirit.

PSALMS: 4, 34, 64, 94, 124

PROVERBS: 4

OLD TESTAMENT: EZEKIEL 47:1 – 48:35

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 PETER 2:11 – 3:7

PSALMS: 4

1 For the leader.

With stringed instruments.

A psalm of David:

O God, my vindicator!

Answer me when I call!

When I was distressed, you set me free;

now have mercy on me, and hear my prayer. 

2 Men of rank, how long will you shame my honor,

love what is vain, chase after lies?

(Selah) 

3 Understand that ADONAI sets apart the godly person for himself;

ADONAI will hear when I call to him. 

4 You can be angry, but do not sin!

Think about this as you lie in bed, and calm down.

(Selah) 

5 Offer sacrifices rightly,

and put your trust in ADONAI. 

6 Many ask, “Who can show us some good?”

ADONAI, lift the light of your face over us! 

7 You have filled my heart with more joy

than all their grain and new wine. 

8 I will lie down and sleep in peace;

for, ADONAI, you alone make me live securely.

PSALMS: 34

1 By David,

when he pretended to be insane before Avimelekh,

who then drove him away;

so he left:

I will bless ADONAI at all times;

his praise will always be in my mouth. 

2 When I boast, it will be about ADONAI;

the humble will hear of it and be glad. 

3 Proclaim with me the greatness of ADONAI;

let us exalt his name together. 

4 I sought ADONAI, and he answered me;

he rescued me from everything I feared. 

5 They looked to him and grew radiant;

their faces will never blush for shame. 

6 This poor man cried;

ADONAI heard and saved him from all his troubles. 

7 The angel of ADONAI,

who encamps around those who fear him, delivers them. 

8 Taste, and see that ADONAI is good.

How blessed are those who take refuge in him! 

9 Fear ADONAI, you holy ones of his,

for those who fear him lack nothing. 

10 Young lions can be needy, they can go hungry,

but those who seek ADONAI lack nothing good. 

11 Come, children, listen to me;

I will teach you the fear of ADONAI. 

12 Which of you takes pleasure in living?

Who wants a long life to see good things?

13 [If you do,] keep your tongue from evil

and your lips from deceiving talk; 

14 turn from evil, and do good;

seek peace, go after it! 

15 The eyes of ADONAI watch over the righteous,

and his ears are open to their cry. 

16 But the face of ADONAI opposes those who do evil,

to cut off all memory of them from the earth. 

17 [The righteous] cried out, and ADONAI heard,

and he saved them from all their troubles. 

18 ADONAI is near those with broken hearts;

he saves those whose spirit is crushed. 

19 The righteous person suffers many evils,

but ADONAI rescues him out of them all. 

20 He protects all his bones;

not one of them gets broken. 

21 Evil will kill the wicked, and those who

hate the righteous will be condemned.

22 But ADONAI redeems his servants;

no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.

PSALMS: 64

1 For the leader.

A psalm of David:

Hear my voice, God, as I plead:

preserve my life from fear of the enemy. 

2 Hide me from the secret intrigues of the wicked

and the open insurrection of evildoers. 

3 They sharpen their tongues like a sword;

they aim their arrows, poisoned words, 

4 in order to shoot from cover at the innocent,

shooting suddenly and fearing nothing. 

5 They support each other’s evil plans;

they talk of hiding snares and ask, “Who would see them?”

6 They search for ways to commit crimes,

bringing their diligent search to completion when each

of them has thought it through in the depth of his heart. 

7  Suddenly God shoots them down with an arrow,

leaving them with wounds; 

8 their own tongues make them stumble.

All who see them shake their heads. 

9 Everyone is awestruck they acknowledge that it is God at work,

they understand what he has done. 

10 The righteous will rejoice in ADONAI;

they will take refuge in him;

all the upright in heart will exult.

PSALMS: 94

1 God of vengeance, ADONAI!

God of vengeance, appear! 

2 Assert yourself as judge of the earth!

Pay back the proud as they deserve! 

3 How long are the wicked, ADONAI,

how long are the wicked to triumph? 

4 They pour out insolent words,

they go on bragging, all these evildoers. 

5 They crush your people, ADONAI,

they oppress your heritage. 

6 They kill widows and strangers

and murder the fatherless. 

7 They say, “Yah isn’t looking;

the God of Ya’akov won’t notice.” 

8 Take notice, yourselves, you boors among the people!

You fools, when will you understand? 

9 Will the one who planted the ear not hear?

Will the one who formed the eye not see?

10 Will the one who disciplines nations not correct them?

Will the teacher of humanity not know? 

11 ADONAI understands that people’s thoughts

are merely a puff of wind. 

12 How happy the man whom you correct, Yah,

whom you teach from your Torah, 

13 giving him respite from days of trouble,

till a pit is dug for the wicked! 

14 For ADONAI will not desert his people,

he will not abandon his heritage. 

15 Justice will once again become righteous,

and all the upright in heart will follow it. 

16 Who will champion my cause against the wicked?

Who will stand up for me against evildoers? 

17 If ADONAI hadn’t helped me,

I would soon have dwelt in the land of silence. 

18 When I said, “My foot is slipping!”

your grace, ADONAI, supported me. 

19 When my cares within me are many,

your comforts cheer me up. 

20 Can unjust judges be allied with you,

those producing wrong in the name of law? 

21 They band together against the righteous

and condemn the innocent to death. 

22 But ADONAI has become my stronghold,

my God is my rock of refuge.

23 But he repays them as their guilt deserves;

he will cut them off with their own evil;

ADONAI our God will cut them off.

PSALMS: 124

1 A song of ascents.

By David:

If ADONAI hadn’t been for us -let Isra’el repeat it – 

2 If ADONAI hadn’t been for us

when people rose to attack us, 

3 then, when their anger blazed against us,

they would have swallowed us alive! 

4 Then the water would have engulfed us,

the torrent would have swept over us. 

5 Yes, the raging water would have swept right over us. 

6 Blessed be ADONAI,

who did not leave us to be a prey for their teeth! 

7 We escaped like a bird from the hunter’s trap;

the trap is broken, and we have escaped. 

8 Our help is in the name of ADONAI,

the maker of heaven and earth.

PROVERBS: 4

1 Listen, children, to a father’s instruction;

pay attention, in order to gain insight; 

2 for I am giving you good advice;

so don’t abandon my teaching. 

3 For I too was once a child to my father;

and my mother, too, thought of me as her special darling. 

4 He too taught me; he said to me,

“Let your heart treasure my words;

keep my commands, and live; 

5 gain wisdom, gain insight;

don’t forget or turn from the words I am saying. 

6 Don’t abandon [wisdom];

then she will preserve you;

love her, and she will protect you. 

7 The beginning of wisdom is: get wisdom!

And along with all your getting, get insight! 

8 Cherish her, and she will exalt you;

embrace her, and she will bring you honor; 

9 she will give your head a garland of grace,

bestow on you a crown of glory.” 

10 Listen, my son, receive what I say,

and the years of your life will be many. 

11 I’m directing you on the way of wisdom,

guiding you in paths of uprightness; 

12 when you walk, your step won’t be hindered;

and if you run, you won’t stumble. 

13 Hold fast to discipline, don’t let it go;

guard it, for it is your life. 

14 Don’t follow the path of the wicked

or walk on the way of evildoers.

15 Avoid it, don’t go on it,

turn away from it, and pass on. 

16 For they can’t sleep if they haven’t done evil,

they are robbed of sleep unless they make someone fall. 

17  For they eat the bread of wickedness

and drink the wine of violence. 

18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,

shining ever brighter until full daylight. 

19 The way of the wicked is like darkness;

they don’t even know what makes them stumble. 

20 My son, pay attention to what I am saying;

incline your ear to my words. 

21 Don’t let them out of your sight,

keep them deep in your heart; 

22 for they are life to those who find them

and health to their whole being. 

23 Above everything else, guard your heart;

for it is the source of life’s consequences. 

24 Keep crooked speech out of your mouth,

banish deceit from your lips. 

25 Let your eyes look straight ahead,

fix your gaze on what lies in front of you. 

26 Level the path for your feet,

let all your ways be properly prepared; 

27 then deviate neither right nor left;

and keep your foot far from evil.

OLD TESTAMENT: EZEKIEL 47:1 – 48:35

47:1 He brought me back to the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward; (for the forefront of the house was toward the east;) and the waters came down from under, from the right side of the house, on the south of the altar. 2 Then he brought me out by the way of the gate northward, and led me round by the way outside to the outer gate, by the way of [the gate] that looks toward the east; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side. 3 When the man went forth eastward with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he caused me to pass through the waters, waters that were to the ankles. 4 Again he measured one thousand, and caused me to pass through the waters, waters that were to the knees. Again he measured one thousand, and caused me to pass through [the waters], waters that were to the loins. 5 Afterward he measured one thousand; [and it was] a river that I could not pass through; for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed through. 6 He said to me, Son of man, have you seen [this]? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the bank of the river. 7  Now when I had returned, behold, on the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. 8 Then said he to me, These waters issue forth toward the eastern region, and shall go down into the `Aravah; and they shall go toward the sea; into the sea [shall the waters go] which were made to issue forth; and the waters shall be healed. 9 It shall happen, that every living creature which swarms, in every place where the rivers come, shall live; and there shall be a very great multitude of fish; for these waters are come there, and [the waters of the sea] shall be healed, and everything shall live wherever the river comes. 10 It shall happen, that fishermen shall stand by it: from `En-Gedi even to `En-`Eglayim shall be a place for the spreading of nets; their fish shall be after their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many. 11 But the miry places of it, and the marshes of it, shall not be healed; they shall be given up to salt. 12 By the river on the bank of it, on this side and on that side, shall grow every tree for food, whose leaf shall not wither, neither shall the fruit of it fail: it shall bring forth new fruit every month, because the waters of it issue out of the sanctuary; and the fruit of it shall be for food, and the leaf of it for healing. 13 Thus says the Lord GOD: This shall be the border, whereby you shall divide the land for inheritance according to the twelve tribes of Yisra’el: Yosef [shall have two] portions. 14 You shall inherit it, one as well as another; for I swore to give it to your fathers: and this land shall fall to you for inheritance. 15 This shall be the border of the land: On the north side, from the great sea, by the way of Hetlon, to the entrance of Tzedad; 16 Hamat, Berotah, Sivrai, which is between the border of Dammesek and the border of Hamat; the middle Hatzer, which is by the border of Havran. 17 The border from the sea, shall be Hatzar-`Enon at the border of Dammesek; and on the north northward is the border of Hamat. This is the north side. 18 The east side, between Hauran and Dammesek and Gil`ad, and Eretz-Yisra’el, shall be the Yarden; from the [north] border to the east sea shall you measure. This is the east side. 19 The south side southward shall be from Tamar as far as the waters of Merivot-Kadesh, to the brook [of Mitzrayim], to the great sea. This is the south side southward. 20 The west side shall be the great sea, from the [south] border as far as over against the entrance of Hamat. This is the west side. 21 So shall you divide this land to you according to the tribes of Yisra’el. 22 It shall happen, that you shall divide it by lot for an inheritance to you and to the strangers who sojourn among you, who shall father children among you; and they shall be to you as the home-born among the children of Yisra’el; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes of Yisra’el. 23 It shall happen, that in what tribe the stranger sojourns, there shall you give him his inheritance, says the Lord GOD.

48:1 Now these are the names of the tribes: From the north end, beside the way of Hetlon to the entrance of Hamat, Hatzar-`Enan at the border of Dammesek, northward beside Hamat, (and they shall have their sides east [and] west,) Dan, one [portion]. 2 By the border of Dan, from the east side to the west side, Asher, one [portion]. 3 By the border of Asher, from the east side even to the west side, Naftali, one [portion]. 4 By the border of Naftali, from the east side to the west side, Menashsheh, one [portion]. 5 By the border of Menashsheh, from the east side to the west side, Efrayim, one [portion]. 6 By the border of Efrayim, from the east side even to the west side, Re’uven, one [portion]. 7 By the border of Re’uven, from the east side to the west side, Yehudah, one [portion]. 8 By the border of Yehudah, from the east side to the west side, shall be the offering which you shall offer, twenty-five thousand [reeds] in breadth, and in length as one of the portions, from the east side to the west side: and the sanctuary shall be in the midst of it. 9 The offering that you shall offer to the LORD shall be twenty-five thousand [reeds] in length, and ten thousand in breadth. 10 For these, even for the Kohanim, shall be the holy offering: toward the north twenty-five thousand [in length], and toward the west ten thousand in breadth, and toward the east ten thousand in breadth, and toward the south twenty-five thousand in length: and the sanctuary of the LORD shall be in the midst of it. 11 [It shall be] for the Kohanim who are sanctified of the sons of Tzadok, who have kept my charge, who didn’t go astray when the children of Yisra’el went astray, as the Levites went astray. 12 It shall be to them an offering from the offering of the land, a thing most holy, by the border of the Levites. 13 Answerable to the border of the Kohanim, the Levites shall have twenty-five thousand in length, and ten thousand in breadth: all the length shall be twenty-five thousand, and the breadth ten thousand. 14 They shall sell none of it, nor exchange it, nor shall the first fruits of the land be alienated; for it is holy to the LORD. 15 The five thousand that are left in the breadth, in front of the twenty-five thousand, shall be for common use, for the city, for dwelling and for suburbs; and the city shall be in the midst of it. 16 These shall be the measures of it: the north side four thousand and five hundred, and the south side four thousand and five hundred, and on the east side four thousand and five hundred, and the west side four thousand and five hundred. 17  The city shall have suburbs: toward the north two hundred fifty, and toward the south two hundred fifty, and toward the east two hundred fifty, and toward the west two hundred fifty. 18 The remainder in the length, answerable to the holy offering, shall be ten thousand eastward, and ten thousand westward; and it shall be answerable to the holy offering; and the increase of it shall be for food to those who labor in the city. 19 Those who labor in the city, out of all the tribes of Yisra’el, shall until it. 20 All the offering shall be twenty-five thousand by twenty-five thousand: you shall offer the holy offering four-square, with the possession of the city. 21 The residue shall be for the prince, on the one side and on the other of the holy offering and of the possession of the city; in front of the twenty-five thousand of the offering toward the east border, and westward in front of the twenty-five thousand toward the west border, answerable to the portions, it shall be for the prince: and the holy offering and the sanctuary of the house shall be in the midst of it. 22 Moreover from the possession of the Levites, and from the possession of the city, being in the midst of that which is the prince’s, between the border of Yehudah and the border of Binyamin, it shall be for the prince. 23 As for the rest of the tribes: from the east side to the west side, Binyamin, one [portion]. 24 By the border of Binyamin, from the east side to the west side, Shim`on, one [portion]. 25 By the border of Shim`on, from the east side to the west side, Yissakhar, one [portion]. 26 By the border of Yissakhar, from the east side to the west side, Zevulun, one [portion]. 27 By the border of Zevulun, from the east side to the west side, Gad, one [portion]. 28 By the border of Gad, at the south side southward, the border shall be even from Tamar to the waters of Merivat-Kadesh, to the brook [of Mitzrayim], to the great sea. 29 This is the land which you shall divide by lot to the tribes of Yisra’el for inheritance, and these are their several portions, says the Lord GOD. 30 These are the exits of the city: On the north side four thousand and five hundred [reeds] by measure; 31 and the gates of the city shall be after the names of the tribes of Yisra’el, three gates northward: the gate of Re’uven, one; the gate of Yehudah, one; the gate of Levi, one. 32 At the east side four thousand and five hundred [reeds], and three gates: even the gate of Yosef, one; the gate of Binyamin, one; the gate of Dan, one. 33 At the south side four thousand and five hundred [reeds] by measure, and three gates: the gate of Shim`on, one; the gate of Yissakhar, one; the gate of Zevulun, one. 34 At the west side four thousand and five hundred [reeds], with their three gates: the gate of Gad, one; the gate of Asher, one; the gate of Naftali, one. 35 It shall be eighteen thousand [reeds] round about: and the name of the city from that day shall be, the LORD is there.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 PETER 2:11 – 3:7

2:11 Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, to abstain from fleshly lust, which war against the soul; 12 having good behavior among the nations, so in that which they speak against you as evil-doers, they may by your good works, which they see, glorify God in the day of visitation. 13 Therefore subject yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether to the king, as supreme; 14 or to governors, as sent by him for vengeance on evil-doers and for praise to those who do well. 15 For so is the will of God, that by well-doing you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16 as free, and not using your freedom for a cloak of wickedness, but as bondservants of God. 17 Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king. 18 Servants, be in subjection to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the wicked. 19 For it is commendable if someone endures pain, suffering unjustly, because of conscience toward God. 20 For what glory is it, if, when you sin, you patiently endure beating? But if, when you do well, you patiently endure suffering, this is commendable with God. 21 For to this were you called, because Messiah also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow his steps, 22who did not sin, “neither was deceit found in his mouth.” 23 Who, when he was reviled, didn’t revile back. When he suffered, didn’t threaten, but committed himself to him who judges righteously; 24 who his own self bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed. 25 For you were going astray like sheep; but are now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

3:1 In like manner, wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; so that, even if any don’t obey the Word, they may be gained by the behavior of their wives without a word; 2 seeing your pure behavior in fear. 3 Let your beauty be not just the outward adorning of braiding the hair, and of wearing jewels of gold, or of putting on fine clothing; 4 but in the hidden person of the heart, in the incorruptible adornment of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God very precious. 5 For this is how the holy women before, who hoped in God, also adorned themselves, being in subjection to their own husbands: 6 as Sarah obeyed Avraham, calling him lord, whose children you now are, if you do well, and are not put in fear by any terror. 7 You husbands, in like manner, live with your wives according to knowledge, giving honor to the woman, as to the weaker vessel, as being also joint heirs of the grace of life; not cutting off your prayers.

SEPTEMBER 3

PSALMS: 3, 33, 63, 93, 123

PROVERBS: 3

OLD TESTAMENT: EZEKIEL 45:13 – 46:35

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 PETER 1:13 – 2:10

PSALMS: 3

1 A psalm of David,

when he fled from Avshalom his son:

ADONAI, how many enemies I have!

How countless are those attacking me; 

2 how countless those who say of me,

“There is no salvation for him in God.”

(Selah) 

3 But you, ADONAI, are a shield for me;

you are my glory, you lift my head high. 

4 With my voice I call out to ADONAI,

and he answers me from his holy hill.

(Selah) 

5 I lie down and sleep, then wake up again,

because ADONAI sustains me. 

6 I am not afraid of the tens of thousands

set against me on every side. 

7 Rise up, ADONAI!

Save me, my God!

For you slap all my enemies in the face,

you smash the teeth of the wicked. 

8 Victory comes from ADONAI;

may your blessing rest on your people.

(Selah)

PSALMS: 33

1 Rejoice in ADONAI, you righteous!

Praise is well-suited to the upright. 

2 Give thanks to ADONAI with the lyre,

sing praises to him with a ten-stringed harp. 

3 Sing to him a new song,

make music at your best among shouts of joy. 

4 For the word of ADONAI is true,

and all his work is trustworthy. 

5 He loves righteousness and justice;

the earth is full of the grace of ADONAI. 

6 By the word of ADONAI the heavens were made,

and their whole host by a breath from his mouth. 

7 He collects the sea waters together in a heap;

he puts the deeps in storehouses. 

8 Let all the earth fear ADONAI!

Let all living in the world stand in awe of him. 

9 For he spoke, and there it was;

he commanded, and there it stood. 

10 ADONAI brings to nothing the plans of nations,

he foils the plans of the peoples. 

11 But the counsel of ADONAI stands forever,

his heart’s plans are for all generations. 

12 How blessed is the nation whose God is ADONAI,

the people he chose as his heritage! 

13 ADONAI looks out from heaven;

he sees every human being; 

14 from the place where he lives he

watches everyone living on earth, 

15 he who fashioned the hearts of them

all and understands all they do. 

16 A king is not saved by the size of his army,

a strong man not delivered by his great strength. 

17 To rely on a horse for safety is vain,

nor does its great power assure escape. 

18 But ADONAI’s eyes watch over those who fear him,

over those who wait for his grace 

19 to rescue them from death

and keep them alive in famine. 

20 We are waiting for ADONAI;

he is our help and shield. 

21 For in him our hearts rejoice,

because we trust in his holy name. 

22 May your mercy, ADONAI, be over us,

because we put our hope in you.

PSALMS: 63

1 A psalm of David,

when he was in the desert of Y’hudah:

O God, you are my God;

I will seek you eagerly.

My heart thirsts for you,

my body longs for you in a land parched and exhausted,

where no water can be found. 

2 I used to contemplate you in the sanctuary,

seeing your power and glory; 

3 for your grace is better than life.

My lips will worship you. 

4 Yes, I will bless you as long as I live;

in your name I will lift up my hands. 

5 I am as satisfied as with rich food;

my mouth praises you with joy on my lips 

6 when I remember you on my bed

and meditate on you in the night watches. 

7 For you have been my help;

in the shadow of your wings I rejoice; 

8 my heart clings to you;

your right hand supports me. 

9 But those who seek to destroy my life -may

they go to the lowest parts of the earth. 

10 May they be given over to the power of the sword;

may they become prey for jackals. 

11 But the king will rejoice in God.

Everyone who swears by him will exult,

for the mouths of liars will be silenced.

PSALMS: 93

1 ADONAI is king, robed in majesty;

ADONAI is robed, girded with strength;

The world is well established;

it cannot be moved. 

2 Your throne was established long ago;

you have existed forever. 

3 ADONAI, the deep is raising up, the deep is raising up

its voice, the deep is raising its crashing waves. 

4 More than the sound of rushing waters or the mighty breakers of the sea,

ADONAI on high is mighty.

5 Your instructions are very sure;

holiness befits your house,

ADONAI, for all time to come.

PSALMS: 123

1 A song of ascents:

I raise my eyes to you, whose throne is in heaven. 

2 As a servant looks to the hand of his master,

or a slave-girl to the hand of her mistress,

so our eyes turn to ADONAI our God,

until he has mercy on us. 

3 Have mercy on us, ADONAI, have mercy;

for we have had our fill of contempt, 

4 more than our fill of scorn from the complacent

and contempt from the arrogant.

PROVERBS: 3

1 My son, don’t forget my teaching,

keep my commands in your heart; 

2 for they will add to you many days,

years of life and peace.

3 Do not let grace and truth leave you -bind them around your neck;

write them on the tablet of your heart. 

4 Then you will win favor and esteem

in the sight of God and of people. 

5 Trust in ADONAI with all your heart;

do not rely on your own understanding. 

6 In all your ways acknowledge him;

then he will level your paths. 

7 Don’t be conceited about your own wisdom;

but fear ADONAI, and turn from evil. 

8 This will bring health to your body

and give strength to your bones. 

9 Honor ADONAI with your wealth

and with the firstfruits of all your income. 

10 Then your granaries will be filled

and your vats overflow with new wine. 

11 My son, don’t despise ADONAI’s discipline

or resent his reproof; 

12 for ADONAI corrects those he loves

like a father who delights in his son. 

13 Happy the person who finds wisdom,

the person who acquires understanding; 

14 for her profit exceeds that of silver,

gaining her is better than gold, 

15 she is more precious than pearls -nothing

you want can compare with her.

16 Long life is in her right hand,

riches and honor in her left. 

17 Her ways are pleasant ways,

and all her paths are peace. 

18 She is a tree of life to those who grasp her;

whoever holds fast to her will be made happy. 

19 ADONAI by wisdom founded the earth,

by understanding he established the heavens, 

20 by his knowledge the deep [springs] burst open

and the dew condenses from the sky. 

21 My son, don’t let these slip from your sight;

preserve common sense and discretion; 

22 they will be life for your being

and grace for your neck. 

23 Then you will walk your way securely,

without hurting your foot. 

24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;

when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. 

25 Don’t be afraid of sudden terror or destruction caused by the wicked,

when it comes; 

26 for you can rely on ADONAI;

he will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.

27 Don’t withhold good from someone entitled to it when

you have in hand the power to do it. 

28 Don’t tell your neighbor, “Go away!

Come another time;

I’ll give it to you tomorrow,”

when you have it now.

29 Don’t plan harm against your neighbor who lives beside you trustingly. 

30 Don’t quarrel with someone for no reason, if he has done you no harm. 

31 Don’t envy a man of violence, don’t choose any of his ways; 

32 for the perverse is an abomination to ADONAI,

but he shares his secret counsel with the upright. 

33 ADONAI’s curse is in the house of the wicked,

but he blesses the home of the righteous. 

34 The scornful he scorns,

but gives grace to the humble.

35 The wise win honor,

but fools win shame.

OLD TESTAMENT: EZEKIEL 45:13 – 46:35

45:13 This is the offering that you shall offer: the sixth part of an efah from a homer of wheat; and you shall give the sixth part of an efah from a homer of barley; 14 and the set portion of oil, of the bath of oil, the tenth part of a bath out of the cor, [which is] ten baths, even a homer; (for ten baths are a homer;) 15 and one lamb of the flock, out of two hundred, from the well-watered pastures of Yisra’el; -for a meal-offering, and for a burnt offering, and for peace-offerings, to make atonement for them, says the Lord GOD. 16 All the people of the land shall give to this offering for the prince in Yisra’el. 17 It shall be the prince’s part to give the burnt offerings, and the meal-offerings, and the drink-offerings, in the feasts, and on the new moons, and on the Shabbatot, in all the appointed feasts of the house of Yisra’el: he shall prepare the sin-offering, and the meal-offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace-offerings, to make atonement for the house of Yisra’el. 18 Thus says the Lord GOD: In the first [month], in the first [day] of the month, you shall take a young bull without blemish; and you shall cleanse the sanctuary. 19 The Kohen shall take of the blood of the sin-offering, and put it on the door-posts of the house, and on the four corners of the ledge of the altar, and on the posts of the gate of the inner court. 20 So you shall do on the seventh [day] of the month for everyone who errs, and for him who is simple: so shall you make atonement for the house. 21 In the first [month], in the fourteenth day of the month, you shall have the Pesach, a feast of seven days; matzah shall be eaten. 22 On that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bull for a sin-offering. 23 The seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to the LORD, seven bulls and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a male goat daily for a sin-offering. 24 He shall prepare a meal-offering, an efah for a bull, and an efah for a ram, and a hin of oil to an efah. 25 In the seventh [month], in the fifteenth day of the month, in the feast, shall he do the like the seven days; according to the sin-offering, according to the burnt offering, and according to the meal-offering, and according to the oil.

46:1 Thus says the Lord GOD: The gate of the inner court that looks toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the day of Shabbat it shall be opened, and on the day of the new moon it shall be opened. 2 The prince shall enter by the way of the porch of the gate outside, and shall stand by the post of the gate; and the Kohanim shall prepare his burnt-offering and his peace-offerings, and he shall worship at the threshold of the gate: then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be shut until the evening. 3 The people of the land shall worship at the door of that gate before the LORD on the Shabbatot and on the new moons. 4 The burnt offering that the prince shall offer to the LORD shall be on the day of Shabbat six lambs without blemish and a ram without blemish; 5 and the meal-offering shall be an efah for the ram, and the meal-offering for the lambs as he is able to give, and a hin of oil to an efah. 6 On the day of the new moon it shall be a young bull without blemish, and six lambs, and a ram; they shall be without blemish: 7  and he shall prepare a meal-offering, an efah for the bull, and an efah for the ram, and for the lambs according as he is able, and a hin of oil to an efah. 8 When the prince shall enter, he shall go in by the way of the porch of the gate, and he shall go forth by the way of it. 9 But when the people of the land shall come before the LORD in the appointed feasts, he who enters by the way of the north gate to worship shall go forth by the way of the south gate; and he who enters by the way of the south gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate: he shall not return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but shall go forth straight before him. 10 The prince, when they go in, shall go in with of them; and when they go out, he shall go out. 11 In the feasts and in the solemnities the meal-offering shall be an efah for a bull, and an efah for a ram, and for the lambs as he is able to give, and a hin of oil to an efah. 12 When the prince shall prepare a freewill-offering, a burnt offering or peace-offerings as a freewill-offering to the LORD, one shall open for him the gate that looks toward the east; and he shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace-offerings, as he does on the day of Shabbat: then he shall go forth; and after his going forth one shall shut the gate. 13 You shall prepare a lamb a year old without blemish for a burnt offering to the LORD daily: morning by morning shall you prepare it. 14 You shall prepare a meal-offering with it morning by morning, the sixth part of an efah, and the third part of a hin of oil, to moisten the fine flour; a meal-offering to the LORD continually by a perpetual ordinance. 15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the meal-offering, and the oil, morning by morning, for a continual burnt offering. 16 Thus says the Lord GOD: If the prince give a gift to any of his sons, it is his inheritance, it shall belong to his sons; it is their possession by inheritance. 17 But if he give of his inheritance a gift to one of his servants, it shall be his to the year of liberty; then it shall return to the prince; but as for his inheritance, it shall be for his sons. 18 Moreover the prince shall not take of the people’s inheritance, to thrust them out of their possession; he shall give inheritance to his sons out of his own possession, that my people not be scattered every man from his possession. 19 Then he brought me through the entry, which was at the side of the gate, into the holy chambers for the Kohanim, which looked toward the north: and, behold, there was a place on the hinder part westward. 20 He said to me, This is the place where the Kohanim shall boil the trespass-offering and the sin-offering, [and] where they shall bake the meal-offering; that they not bring them forth into the outer court, to sanctify the people. 21 Then he brought me forth into the outer court, and caused me to pass by the four corners of the court; and, behold, in every corner of the court there was a court. 22 In the four corners of the court there were courts enclosed, forty [cubits] long and thirty broad: these four in the corners were of one measure. 23 There was a wall round about in them, round about the four, and boiling-places were made under the walls round about. 24 Then said he to me, These are the boiling-houses, where the ministers of the house shall boil the sacrifice of the people.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 PETER 1:13 – 2:10

1:13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action, be sober and set your hope perfectly on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Yeshua the Messiah — 14 as children of obedience, not conforming yourselves according to your former lusts as in your ignorance, 15 but just as he who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all of your behavior; 16 because it is written, “You shall be holy; for I am holy.” 17 If you call on him as Father, who without respect of persons judges according to each man’s work, pass the time of your living as strangers here in reverent fear: 18 knowing that you were redeemed, not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, from the useless way of life handed down from your fathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb without spot, the blood of Messiah; 20 who was foreknown indeed before the foundation of the world, but was revealed at the end of times for your sake, 21 who through him are believers in God, that raised him from the dead, and gave him glory; so that your faith and hope might be in God. 22 Seeing you have purified your souls in your obedience to the truth through the Spirit in sincere brotherly affection, love one another from the heart fervently: 23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the word of God, which lives and remains forever. 24For, “All flesh is like grass, And all of man’s glory like the flower in the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls; 25 But the Lord’s word endures forever.” This is the word of good news which was preached to you.

2:1 Putting away therefore all wickedness, all deceit, hypocrisies, envies, and all evil speaking, 2 as newborn babes, long for the pure milk of the Word, that you may grow thereby, 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious: 4 coming to him, a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God, precious. 5 You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Yeshua the Messiah. 6 Because it is contained in Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Tziyon a chief cornerstone, elect, precious: He who believes in him will not be put to shame.” 7 For you therefore who believe is the honor, but for such as are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected, Has become the chief cornerstone,” 8 and, “A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.” For they stumble at the word, being disobedient, whereunto also they were appointed. 9 But you are an elect race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that you may show forth the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: 10 who in time past were no people, but now are the people of God, who had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
