JUNE 20

PSALMS: 20, 50, 80, 110, 140

PROVERBS: 20

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 3:1 – 5:30

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 11:1 – 15

PSALMS: 20

1 May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble.

May the name of the God of Ya`akov set you up on high, 

2 Send you help from the sanctuary,

Grant you support from Tziyon, 

3 Remember all your offerings,

And accept your burnt-sacrifice. Selah. 

4 May He grant you your heart’s desire,

And fulfill all your counsel. 

5 We will triumph in your yeshu`ah.

In the name of our God we will set up our banners:

The LORD fulfill all your petitions. 

6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed.

He will answer him from his holy heaven,

With the saving strength of his right hand. 

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses,

But we trust the name of the LORD our God. 

8 They are bowed down and fallen,

But we rise up, and stand upright.

9 Save, LORD;

Let the King answer us when we call!

PSALMS: 50

1 The Mighty One, God, the LORD, speaks,

And calls the eretz from sunrise to sunset. 

2 Out of Tziyon, the perfection of beauty,

God shines forth. 

3 Our God comes, and does not keep silent.

A fire devours before him.

It is very tempestuous around him. 

4 He calls to the heavens above,

To the eretz, that he may judge his people: 

5 “Gather my holy ones together to me,

Those who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.” 

6 The heavens shall declare his righteousness,

For God himself is judge.

Selah. 

7 “Hear, my people, and I will speak;

Yisra’el, and I will testify against you.

I am God, your God. 

8 I don’t rebuke you for your sacrifices.

Your burnt offerings are continually before me. 

9 I have no need for a bull from your stall,

Nor male goats from your pens. 

10 For every animal of the forest is mine,

And the cattle on a thousand hills. 

11 I know all the birds of the mountains.

The wild animals of the field are mine. 

12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you,

For the world is mine, and all that is in it.

13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls,

Or drink the blood of goats? 

14 Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving.

Pay your vows to Ha`Elyon.

15 Call on me in the day of trouble.

I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” 

16 But to the wicked God says,

“What right do you have to declare my statutes,

That you have taken my covenant on your lips,

17  Seeing you hate instruction,

And throw my words behind you?

18 When you saw a thief, you consented with him,

And have participated with adulterers. 

19 “You give your mouth to evil.

You harnesses your tongue for deceit. 

20 You sit and speak against your brother.

You slander your own mother’s son. 

21 You have done these things, and I kept silent.

You thought that the “I AM” was just like you.

I will rebuke you, and accuse you in front of your eyes. 

22 “Now consider this, you who forget God,

Lest I tear you into pieces, and there be none to deliver. 

23 Whoever offers the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifies me,

And prepares his way so that I will show God’s salvation to him.”

PSALMS: 80

1 Hear us, Shepherd of Yisra’el,

You who lead Yosef like a flock,

You who sit above the Keruvim, shine forth. 

2 Before Efrayim and Binyamin and Menashsheh,

stir up your might,

Come to save us. 

3 Turn us again, God.

Cause your face to shine,

And we will be saved.

4 LORD God Tzva’ot,

How long will you be angry against the prayer of your people? 

5 You have fed them with the bread of tears,

And given them tears to drink in large measure. 

6 You make us a source of contention to our neighbors.

Our enemies laugh among themselves. 

7 Turn us again,

God Tzva’ot.

Cause your face to shine,

And we will be saved. 

8 You brought a vine out of Mitzrayim.

You drove out the nations, and planted it. 

9 You cleared the ground for it.

It took deep root, and filled the land. 

10 The mountains were covered with its shadow.

Its boughs were like God’s cedars. 

11 It sent out its branches to the sea,

Its shoots to the River. 

12 Why have you broken down its walls,

So that all those who pass by the way pluck it? 

13 The boar out of the wood ravages it.

The wild animals of the field feed on it. 

14 Turn again, we beg you, God Tzva’ot.

Look down from heaven, and see, and visit this vine, 

15 The stock which your right hand planted,

The branch that you made strong for yourself. 

16 It is burned with fire. It is cut down.

They perish at your rebuke. 

17  Let your hand be on the man of your right hand,

On the son of man whom you made strong for yourself. 

18 So we will not turn away from you.

Revive us, and we will call on your name. 

19 Turn us again, LORD God Tzva’ot.

Cause your face to shine, and we will be saved.

PSALMS: 110

1 The LORD says to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand,

Until I make your enemies your footstool for your feet.” 

2 The LORD will send forth the rod of your strength out of Tziyon.

Rule in the midst of your enemies. 

3 Your people offer themselves willingly in the day of your power,

In holy array.

Out of the womb of the morning, you have the dew of your youth. 

4 The LORD has sworn, and will not change his mind:

“You are a Kohen forever in the order of Malki-Tzedek.” 

5 The Lord is at your right hand.

He will crush kings in the day of his wrath.

6 He will judge among the nations.

He will heap up dead bodies.

He will crush the ruler of the whole eretz. 

7 He will drink of the brook in the way;

Therefore will he lift up his head.

PSALMS: 140

1 Deliver me, LORD, from the evil man.

Preserve me from the violent man; 

2 Those who devise mischief in their hearts.

They continually gather themselves together for war. 

3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent.

Viper’s poison is under their lips.

Selah. 

4 LORD, keep me from the hands of the wicked.

Preserve me from the violent men:

Who have determined to trip my feet. 

5 The proud have hidden a snare for me,

They have spread the cords of a net by the path.

They have set traps for me.

Selah. 

6 I said to the LORD,

“You are my God.

” Listen to the cry of my petitions, LORD. 

7 LORD, the Lord, the strength of my yeshu`ah,

You have covered my head in the day of battle. 

8 LORD, don’t grant the desires of the wicked.

Don’t let their evil plans succeed, or they will become proud. Selah. 

9 As for the head of those who surround me,

Let the mischief of their own lips cover them. 

10 Let burning coals fall on them.

Let them be thrown into the fire,

Into miry pits, from where they never rise. 

11 An evil speaker won’t be established in the eretz.

Evil will hunt the violent man to overthrow him. 

12 I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted,

And justice for the needy. 

13 Surely the righteous will give thanks to your name.

The upright will dwell in your presence.

PROVERBS: 20

1 Wine is a mocker, and beer is a brawler;

Whoever is let astray by them is not wise. 

2 The terror of a king is like the roaring of a lion:

He who provokes him to anger forfeits his own life. 

3 It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife;

But every fool will be quarreling.

4 The sluggard will not plow by reason of the winter;

Therefore he shall beg in harvest, and have nothing. 

5 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water;

But a man of understanding will draw it out.

6 Many men claim to be men of unfailing love,

But who can find a faithful man? 

7 A righteous man who walks in his integrity,

Blessed are his children after him. 

8 A king who sits on the throne of judgment

Scatters away all evil with his eyes. 

9 Who can say, “I have made my heart pure.

I am clean and without sin?” 

10 Differing weights and differing measures,

Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD. 

11 Even a child makes himself known by his doings,

Whether his work is pure, and whether it is right. 

12 The hearing ear, and the seeing eye,

The LORD has made even both of them. 

13 Don’t love sleep, lest you come to poverty;

Open your eyes, and you shall be satisfied with bread. 

14 “It’s no good, it’s no good,” says the buyer;

But when he is gone his way, then he boasts.

15 There is gold and abundance of rubies;

But the lips of knowledge are a rare jewel. 

16 Take the garment of one who puts up collateral for a stranger;

And hold him in pledge for a wayward woman. 

17 Fraudulent food is sweet to a man,

But afterwards his mouth is filled with gravel. 

18 Plans are established by advice;

By wise guidance you wage war! 

19 He who goes about as a tale-bearer reveals secrets;

Therefore don’t keep company with him who opens wide his lips. 

20 Whoever curses his father or his mother,

His lamp shall be put out in blackness of darkness. 

21 An inheritance quickly gained at the beginning,

Won’t be blessed in the end. 

22 Don’t say,

“I will pay back evil.”

Wait for the LORD, and he will save you. 

23 The LORD detests differing weights,

And dishonest scales are not pleasing. 

24 A man’s steps are from the LORD;

How then can man understand his way? 

25 It is a snare to a man make a rash dedication,

And later reconsider his vows. 

26 A wise king winnows out the wicked,

And drives the threshing wheel over them. 

27 The spirit of man is the LORD’s lamp,

Searching all his innermost parts.

28 Love and faithfulness keep the king safe.

His throne is sustained by love. 

29 The glory of young men is their strength.

The splendor of old men is their gray hair. 

30 Wounding blows cleanse away evil,

And beatings purge the innermost parts.

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 3:1 – 5:30

3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, takes away from Yerushalayim and from Yehudah supply and support, The whole supply of bread, And the whole supply of water; 2 The mighty man, The man of war, The judge, The prophet, The diviner, The elder, 3 The captain of fifty, The honorable man, The counselor, The skilled craftsman, And the clever enchanter. 4 I will give boys to be their princes, And children shall rule over them. 5 The people will be oppressed, Everyone by another, And everyone by his neighbor. The child will behave himself proudly against the old man, And the base against the honorable. 6 Indeed a man shall take hold of his brother in the house of his father, saying, “You have clothing, you be our ruler, And let this ruin be under your hand.” 7 In that day he will cry out, saying, I will not be a healer; For in my house is neither bread nor clothing. You shall not make me ruler of the people. 8 For Yerushalayim is ruined, and Yehudah is fallen; Because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, To provoke the eyes of his glory. 9 The look of their faces testify against them. They parade their sin like Sedom. They don’t hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought disaster upon themselves. 10 Tell the righteous “Good!” For they shall eat the fruit of their deeds. 11 Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them; For the deeds of his hands will be paid back to him. 12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, And women rule over them. My people, those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths. 13 The LORD stands up to contend, And stands to judge the peoples. 14 The LORD will enter into judgment with the Zakenim of his people, And their leaders: “It is you who have eaten up the vineyard. The spoil of the poor is in your houses. 15 What do you mean that you crush my people, And grind the face of the poor?” says the Lord, the LORD of Hosts. 16 Moreover the LORD said, “Because the daughters of Tziyon are haughty, And walk with outstretched necks and flirting eyes, Walking to trip as they go, Jingling ornaments on their feet; 17 Therefore the Lord brings sores on the crown of the head of the women of Tziyon, And the LORD will make their scalps bald.” 18 In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, the headbands, the crescent necklaces, 19 the earrings, the bracelets, the veils, 20 the headdresses, the ankle chains, the sashes, the perfume bottles, the charms, 21 the signet rings, the nose rings, 22 the fine robes, the capes, the cloaks, the purses, 23 the hand-mirrors, the fine linen garments, the tiaras, and the shawls. 24 It shall happen that instead of sweet spices, there shall be rottenness; Instead of a belt, a rope; Instead of well set hair, baldness; Instead of a robe, a girding of sackcloth; And branding instead of beauty. 25 Your men shall fall by the sword, And your mighty in the war. 26 Her gates shall lament and mourn; And she shall be desolate and sit on the ground.

4:1 Seven women shall take hold of one man in that day, saying, “We will eat our own bread, and wear our own clothing: only let us be called by your name. Take away our reproach.” 2 In that day, the LORD’s branch will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the beauty and glory of the survivors of Yisra’el. 3 It will happen, that he who is left in Tziyon, and he who remains in Yerushalayim, shall be called holy, even everyone who is written among the living in Yerushalayim; 4 when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Tziyon, and shall have purged the blood of Yerushalayim from its midst, by the spirit of justice, and by the spirit of burning. 5 The LORD will create over the whole habitation of Mount Tziyon, and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy. 6 There will be a pavilion for a shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a refuge and for a shelter from storm and from rain.

5:1 Let me sing for my well beloved a song of my beloved about his vineyard. My beloved had a vineyard on a very fruitful hill. 2 He dug it up, Gathered out its stones, Planted it with the choicest vine, Built a tower in its midst, And also cut out a winepress therein. He looked for it to yield grapes, But it yielded wild grapes. 3 Now, inhabitants of Yerushalayim and men of Yehudah, Please judge between me and my vineyard. 4 What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? Why, when I looked for it to yield grapes, did it yield wild grapes? 5 Now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard. I will take away its hedge, and it will be eaten up. I will break down its wall of it, and it will be trampled down. 6 I will lay it a wasteland. It won’t be pruned nor hoed, But it will grow briers and thorns. I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain on it. 7 For the vineyard of the LORD of Hosts is the house of Yisra’el, And the men of Yehudah his pleasant plant: And he looked for justice, but, behold, oppression; For righteousness, but, behold, a cry of distress. 8 Woe to those who join house to house, Who lay field to field, until there is no room, And you are made to dwell alone in the midst of the land! 9 In my ears, the LORD of Hosts says: “Surely many houses will be desolate, Even great and beautiful, unoccupied. 10 For ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, And a homer of seed shall yield an efah. 11 Woe to those who rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; who stay late into the night, until wine inflames them! 12 The harp and the lute, the tambourine and the pipe, and wine, are [in] their feasts; but they don’t regard the work of the LORD, neither have they considered the operation of his hands. 13 Therefore my people are gone into captivity for lack of knowledge; and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude are parched with thirst. 14 Therefore She’ol has enlarged its desire, and opened its mouth without measure; and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he who rejoices among them, descend [into it]. 15 The mean man is bowed down, and the great man is humbled, and the eyes of the lofty are humbled: 16 but the LORD of Hosts is exalted in justice, and God the Holy One is sanctified in righteousness. 17 Then shall the lambs feed as in their pasture, and the waste places of the fat ones shall wanderers eat. 18 Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of falsehood, and sin as it were with a cart rope; 19 who say, Let him make speed, let him hasten his work, that we may see it; and let the counsel of the Holy One of Yisra’el draw near and come, that we may know it! 20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22 Woe to those who are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink; 23 who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! 24 Therefore as the tongue of fire devours the stubble, and as the dry grass sinks down in the flame, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust; because they have rejected the law of the LORD of Hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Yisra’el. 25 Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he has stretched forth his hand against them, and has struck them; and the mountains tremble, and their dead bodies are as refuse in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. 26 He will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss for them from the end of the eretz; and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly. 27 None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the belt of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken: 28 whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent; their horses’ hoofs shall be accounted as flint, and their wheels as a whirlwind: 29 their roaring shall be like a lioness, they shall roar like young lions; yes, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and carry it away safe, and there shall be none to deliver. 30 They shall roar against them in that day like the roaring of the sea: and if one look to the land, behold, darkness [and] distress; and the light is darkened in the clouds of it.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 11:1 – 15

11:1 I wish that you would bear with me in a little foolishness, but indeed you do bear with me. 

2 For I am jealous over you with a godly jealousy. For I married you to one husband, that I might present you as a pure virgin to Messiah. 

3 But I am afraid that by any means, as the serpent deceived Havah in his craftiness, so your minds might be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Messiah. 

4 For if he who comes preaches another Yeshua, whom we did not preach, or if you receive a different spirit, which you did not receive, or a different Good News, which you did not accept, you put up with that well enough. 

5 For I reckon that I am not at all behind the very best apostles. 

6 But though I am unskilled in speech, yet I am not unskilled in knowledge. No, in every way we have been revealed to you in all things. 

7 Or did I commit a sin in humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached to you God’s Good News for nothing? 

8 I robbed other assemblies, taking wages from them that I might serve you. 

9 When I was present with you and was in need, I wasn’t a burden on anyone, for the brothers, when they came from Macedonia, supplied the measure of my need. In everything I kept myself from being burdensome to you, and I will continue to do so.

10 As the truth of Messiah is in me, no one will stop me from this boasting in the regions of Achaia. 

11 Why? Because I don’t love you? God knows. 

12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them that desire an occasion, that in which they boast, they may be found even as we. 

13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as Messiah’s apostles. 

14 And no wonder, for even Hasatan masquerades as an angel of light. 

15 It is no great thing therefore if his ministers also masquerade as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

JUNE 19

PSALMS: 19, 49, 79, 109, 139

PROVERBS: 19

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 1:1 – 2:22

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 10:1 – 18

PSALMS: 19

1 The heavens declare the glory of God.

The expanse shows his handiwork. 

2 Day after day they pour forth speech,

And night after night they display knowledge. 

3 There is no speech nor language,

Where their voice is not heard. 

4 Their voice has gone out through all the eretz,

Their words to the end of the world.

In them he has set a tent for the sun, 

5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,

Like a strong man rejoicing to run his course. 

6 His going forth is from the end of the heavens,

His circuit to the ends of it;

There is nothing hid from the heat of it. 

7 The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul.

The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 

8 The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart.

The mitzvah of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 

9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever.

The ordinances of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. 

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yes, than much fine gold;

Sweeter also than honey and the extract of the honeycomb. 

11 Moreover by them is your servant warned.

In keeping them there is great reward. 

12 Who can discern his errors?

Forgive me from hidden errors. 

13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins.

Let them not have dominion over me.

Then I will be upright,

I will be blameless and innocent of great transgression. 

14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart

Be acceptable in your sight, LORD, my rock, and my redeemer.

PSALMS: 49

1 Hear this, all you peoples.

Listen, all you inhabitants of the world, 

2 Both low and high,

Rich and poor together. 

3 My mouth will speak words of wisdom.

My heart shall utter understanding. 

4 I will incline my ear to a proverb.

I will open my riddle on the harp. 

5 Why should I fear in the days of evil,

When iniquity at my heels surrounds me? 

6 Those who trust in their wealth,

And boast in the multitude of their riches — 

7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother,

Nor give God a ransom for him. 

8 For the redemption of their life is costly,

No payment is ever enough, 

9 That he should live on forever,

That he should not see corruption. 

10 For he sees that wise men die;

Likewise the fool and the senseless perish,

And leave their wealth to others. 

11 Their inward thought is, that their houses will endure forever,

And their dwelling places to all generations.

They name their lands after themselves. 

12 But man, despite his riches, doesn’t endure.

He is like the animals that perish.

13 This is the destiny of those who are foolish,

And of those who approve their sayings. Selah. 

14 They are appointed as a flock for She’ol.

Death shall be their shepherd.

The upright shall have dominion over them in the morning.

Their beauty shall decay in She’ol,

Far from their mansion. 

15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of She’ol,

For he will receive me.

Selah. 

16 Don’t be afraid when a man is made rich,

When the glory of his house is increased. 

17 For when he dies he shall carry nothing away.

His glory shall not descend after him. 

18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul —

And men praise you when you do well for yourself — 

19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers.

They shall never see the light. 

20 A man who has riches without understanding,

Is like the animals that perish.

PSALMS: 79

1 God, the nations have come into your inheritance.

They have defiled your holy temple.

They have laid Yerushalayim in heaps. 

2 They have given the dead bodies of your servants to be food for the birds of the sky, The flesh of your holy ones to the animals of the eretz. 

3 Their blood they have shed like water around Yerushalayim.

There was no one to bury them. 

4 We have become a reproach to our neighbors,

A scoffing and derision to those who are around us.

5 How long, LORD? Will you be angry forever?

Will your jealousy burn like fire? 

6 Pour out your wrath on the nations that don’t know you;

On the kingdoms that don’t call on your names; 

7 For they have devoured Ya`akov,

And destroyed his homeland. 

8 Don’t hold the iniquities of our forefathers against us.

Let your tender mercies speedily meet us,

For we are in desperate need. 

9 Help us, God of our salvation, for the glory of your name.

Deliver us, and forgive our sins, for your name’s sake. 

10 Why should the nations say,

“Where is their God?”

Let it be known among the nations, before our eyes,

That vengeance for your servants’ blood is being poured out. 

11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before you.

According to the greatness of your power, preserve those who are sentenced to death;

12 Pay back to our neighbors seven times into their bosom

Their reproach with which they have reproached you, Lord. 

13 So we, your people and sheep of your pasture,

Will give you thanks forever.

We will praise you forever, to all generations.

PSALMS: 109

1 God of my praise, don’t remain silent, 

2 For they have opened the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit against me. They have spoken to me with a lying tongue. 

3 They have also surrounded me with words of hatred,

And fought against me without a cause. 

4 In return for my love, they are my adversaries;

But I am in prayer. 

5 They have rewarded me evil for good,

And hatred for my love. 

6 Set a wicked man over him.

Let an adversary stand at his right hand. 

7  When he is judged, let him come forth guilty.

Let his prayer be turned into sin. 

8 Let his days be few. Let another take his office. 

9 Let his children be fatherless,

And his wife a widow. 

10 Let his children be wandering beggars.

Let them be sought from their ruins. 

11 Let the creditor seize all that he has.

Let strangers plunder the fruit of his labor. 

12 Let there be none to extend kindness to him,

Neither let there be any to have pity on his fatherless children. 

13 Let his posterity be cut off.

In the generation following let their name be blotted out. 

14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered by the LORD.

Don’t let the sin of his mother be blotted out. 

15 Let them be before the LORD continually,

That he may cut off the memory of them from the eretz; 

16 Because he didn’t remember to show kindness,

But persecuted the poor and needy man,

The broken in heart, to kill them. 

17  Yes, he loved cursing, and it came to him.

He didn’t delight in blessing, and it was far from him. 

18 He clothed himself also with cursing as with his garment.

It came into his inward parts like water,

Like oil into his bones. 

19 Let it be to him as the clothing with which he covers himself,

For the belt that is always around him. 

20 This is the reward of my adversaries from the LORD,

Of those who speak evil against my soul. 

21 But deal with me, the LORD the Lord, for your name’s sake,

Because your loving kindness is good, deliver me; 

22 For I am poor and needy.

My heart is wounded within me. 

23 I fade away like an evening shadow.

I am shaken off as the arbeh. 

24 My knees are weak through fasting.

My body is thin and lacks fat. 

25 I have also become a reproach to them.

When they see me, they shake their head. 

26 Help me, LORD, my God.

Save me according to your loving kindness;

27  That they may know that this is your hand;

That you, LORD, have done it. 

28 They may curse, but you bless.

When they arise, they will be put to shame,

But your servant shall rejoice. 

29 Let my adversaries be clothed with dishonor.

Let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe. 

30 I will give great thanks to the LORD with my mouth.

Yes, I will praise him among the multitude. 

31 For he will stand at the right hand of the needy,

To save him from those who judge his soul.

PSALMS: 139

1 LORD, you have searched me,

And you know me. 

2 You know my sitting down and my rising up.

You perceive my thoughts from afar. 

3 You search out my path and my lying down,

And are acquainted with all my ways. 

4 For there is not a word on my tongue,

But, behold, LORD, you know it altogether. 

5 You tzitzit me in behind and before.

You laid your hand on me. 

6 This knowledge is beyond me.

It is lofty. I can’t attain it. 

7 Where could I go from your Spirit?

Or where could I flee from your presence? 

8 If I ascend up into heaven, you are there.

If I make my bed in She’ol, behold, you are there! 

9 If I take the wings of the dawn,

And settle in the uttermost parts of the sea; 

10 Even there your hand will lead me,

And your right hand will hold me. 

11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me;

The light around me will be night;” 

12 Even the darkness doesn’t hide from you,

But the night shines as the day.

The darkness is like light to you. 

13 For you formed my inmost being.

You knit me together in my mother’s womb. 

14 I will give thanks to you,

For I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Your works are wonderful.

My soul knows that very well. 

15 My frame wasn’t hidden from you,

When I was made in secret,

Woven together in the depths of the eretz. 

16 Your eyes saw my body.

In your book they were all written,

The days that were ordained for me,

When as yet there were none of them. 

17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God!

How vast is the sum of them! 

18 If I would count them, they are more in number than the sand.

When I wake up, I am still with you. 

19 If only you, God, would kill the wicked.

Get away from me, you bloodthirsty men! 

20 For they speak against you wickedly.

Your enemies take your name in vain. 

21 LORD, don’t I hate those who hate you?

Am I not grieved with those who rise up against you? 

22 I hate them with perfect hatred.

They have become my enemies. 

23 Search me, God, and know my heart.

Try me, and know my thoughts.

24 See if there is any wicked way in me,

And lead me in the everlasting way.

PROVERBS: 19

1 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity

Than he who is perverse in his lips and is a fool. 

2 It isn’t good to have zeal without knowledge;

Nor being hasty with one’s feet and missing the way. 

3 The foolishness of man subverts his way;

His heart rages against the LORD. 

4 Wealth adds many friends,

But the poor is separated from his friend. 

5 A false witness shall not be unpunished.

He who pours out lies shall not go free. 

6 Many will entreat the favor of a ruler,

And everyone is a friend to a man who gives gifts. 

7 All the relatives of the poor shun him:

How much more do his friends avoid him!

He pursues them with pleas, but they are gone. 

8 He who gets wisdom loves his own soul.

He who keeps understanding shall find good. 

9 A false witness shall not be unpunished.

He who utters lies shall perish. 

10 Delicate living is not appropriate for a fool,

Much less for a servant to have rule over princes. 

11 The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger.

It is his glory to overlook an offense. 

12 The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion,

But his favor is like dew on the grass. 

13 A foolish son is the calamity of his father.

A wife’s quarrels are a continual dripping. 

14 House and riches are an inheritance from fathers,

But a prudent wife is from the LORD. 

15 Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep.

The idle soul shall suffer hunger.

16 He who keeps the mitzvah keeps his soul,

But he who is contemptuous in his ways shall die. 

17 He who has pity on the poor lends to the LORD;

He will reward him. 

18 Discipline your son, for there is hope;

Don’t be a willing party to his death. 

19 A hot-tempered man must pay the penalty,

For if you rescue him, you must do it again. 

20 Listen to counsel and receive instruction, ‘

That you may be wise in your latter end. 

21 There are many plans in a man’s heart,

But the LORD’s counsel will prevail. 

22 That which makes a man to be desired is his kindness.

A poor man is better than a liar.

23 The fear of the LORD leads to life, then contentment;

He rests and will not be touched by trouble. 

24 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish;

He will not so much as bring it to his mouth again. 

25 Flog a scoffer, and the simple will learn prudence;

Rebuke one who has understanding, and he will gain knowledge. 

26 He who robs his father and drives away his mother,

Is a son who causes shame and brings reproach. 

27 Stop, my son, listening to instruction,

And you will stray from the words of knowledge. 

28 A corrupt witness mocks justice,

And the mouth of the wicked gulps down iniquity. 

29 Penalties are prepared for scoffers,

And beatings for the backs of fools.

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 1:1 – 2:22

1:1 The vision of Yesha`yahu the son of Amotz, which he saw concerning Yehudah and Yerushalayim, in the days of `Uzziyah, Yotam, Achaz, and Hizkiyahu, kings of Yehudah. 2 Hear, heavens, And listen, eretz; for the LORD has spoken: I have nourished and brought up children, And they have rebelled against me. 3 The ox knows his owner, And the donkey his master’s crib; But Yisra’el doesn’t know, My people don’t consider. 4 Ah sinful nation, A people laden with iniquity, A seed of evil-doers, Children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken the LORD. They have despised the Holy One of Yisra’el. They are estranged and backward. 5 Why should you be beaten more, That you revolt more and more? The whole head is sick, And the whole heart faint. 6 From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness in it: Wounds, welts, and open sores. They haven’t been closed, neither bandaged, neither soothed with oil. 7 Your country is desolate. Your cities are burned with fire. Strangers devour your land in your presence, And it is desolate, As overthrown by strangers. 8 The daughter of Tziyon is left like a shelter in a vineyard, Like a hut in a field of melons, Like a besieged city. 9 Unless the LORD of hosts had left to us a very small remnant, We would have been as Sedom; We would have been like `Amorah. 10 Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sedom! Listen to the law of our God, you people of `Amorah! 11 “What are the multitude of your sacrifices to me?,” says the LORD. “I have had enough of the burnt offerings of rams, And the fat of fed animals. I don’t delight in the blood of bulls, Or of lambs, Or of male goats. 12 When you come to appear before me, Who has required this at your hand, to trample my courts? 13 Bring no more vain offerings. Incense is an abomination to me; New moons, Shabbatot, and convocations: I can’t bear with evil assemblies. 14 My soul hates your New Moons and your appointed feasts; They are a burden to me. I am weary of bearing them. 15 When you spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you; Yes, when you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood. 16 Wash yourselves, make yourself clean. Put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes; Cease to do evil. 17 Learn to do well. Seek justice, Relieve the oppressed, Judge the fatherless, Plead for the widow.” 18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” says the LORD: “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. 19 If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land; 20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.” 21 How the faithful city has become a prostitute! She was full of justice; righteousness lodged in her, But now murderers. 22 Your silver has become dross, Your wine mixed with water. 23 Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves. Everyone loves bribes, and follows after rewards. They don’t judge the fatherless, Neither does the cause of the widow come to them. 24 Therefore the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, The Mighty One of Yisra’el, says: “Ah, I will get relief from my adversaries, And avenge myself of my enemies; 25 And I will turn my hand on you, Thoroughly purge away your dross, And will take away all your tin. 26 I will restore your judges as at the first, And your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you shall be called ‘The city of righteousness, A faithful town.’ 27 Tziyon shall be redeemed with justice, And her converts with righteousness. 28 But the destruction of transgressors and sinners shall be together, And those who forsake the LORD shall be consumed. 29For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which you have desired, And you shall be confounded for the gardens that you have chosen. 30 For you shall be as an oak whose leaf fades, And as a garden that has no water. 31 The strong will be like tinder, And his work like a spark. They will both burn together, And no one will quench them.”

2:1 This is what Yesha`yahu the son of Amotz saw concerning Yehudah and Yerushalayim. 2 It shall happen in the latter days, that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be raised above the hills; And all nations shall flow to it. 3 Many peoples shall go and say, “Come, let’s go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Ya`akov; And he will teach us of his ways, And we will walk in his paths. For out of Tziyon the law shall go forth, And the word of the LORD from Yerushalayim. 4 He will judge between the nations, And will decide concerning many peoples; And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, And their spears into pruning-hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war any more. 5 House of Ya`akov, come, and let us walk in the light of the LORD. 6 For you have forsaken your people, the house of Ya`akov, Because they are filled from the east, With those who practice divination like the Pelishtim, And they clasp hands with the children of foreigners. 7 Their land is full of silver and gold, Neither is there any end of their treasures. Their land also is full of horses, Neither is there any end of their chariots. 8 Their land also is full of idols. They worship the work of their own hands, That which their own fingers have made. 9 Man is brought low, And mankind is humbled; Therefore don’t forgive them. 10 Enter into the rock, And hide in the dust, From before the terror of the LORD, And from the glory of his majesty. 11 The lofty looks of man will be brought low, The haughtiness of men will be bowed down, And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day. 12 For there will be a day of the LORD of Hosts for all that is proud and haughty, And for all that is lifted up; And it shall be brought low: 13 For all the cedars of Levanon, that are high and lifted up, For all the oaks of Bashan, 14 For all the high mountains, For all the hills that are lifted up, 15 For every lofty tower, For every fortified wall, 16 For all the ships of Tarshish, And for all pleasant imagery. 17 The loftiness of man shall be bowed down, And the haughtiness of men shall be brought low; And the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. 18 The idols shall utterly pass away. 19 Men shall go into the caves of the rocks, And into the holes of the eretz, From before the terror of the LORD, And from the glory of his majesty, When he arises to shake the eretz mightily. 20 In that day, men shall cast away their idols of silver, And their idols of gold, Which have been made for themselves to worship, To the moles and to the bats; 21 To go into the caverns of the rocks, And into the clefts of the ragged rocks, From before the terror of the LORD, And from the glory of his majesty, When he arises to shake the eretz mightily. 22 Stop trusting in man, whose breath is in his nostrils; For of what account is he?

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 10:1 – 18

10:1 Now I Sha’ul, myself, entreat you by the humility and gentleness of Messiah; I who in your presence am lowly among you, but being absent am of good courage toward you. 

2 Yes, I beg you, that I may not, when present, show courage with the confidence with which I count to be bold against some, who count of us as if we walked according to the flesh. 

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we don’t wage war according to the flesh; 

4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the throwing down of strongholds, 

5 throwing down imaginations and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Messiah; 

6 and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience, when your obedience will be made full.

7 Do you look at things only as they appear in front of your face? If anyone trusts in himself that he is Messiah’s, let him consider this again with himself, that, even as he is Messiah’s, so also we are Messiah’s. 

8 For though I should boast somewhat abundantly concerning our authority, (which the Lord gave for building you up, and not for casting you down) I will not be put to shame, 

9 that I may not seem as if I desire to terrify you by my letters. 

10 For, “His letters,” they say, “are weighty and strong, but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech is despised.” 

11 Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when we are absent, such are we also in deed when we are present. 

12 For we are not bold to number or compare ourselves with some of those who commend themselves. But they themselves, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves with themselves, are without understanding. 

13 But we will not boast beyond proper limits, but within the boundaries with which God appointed to us, which reach even to you. 

14 For we don’t stretch ourselves too much, as though we didn’t reach to you. For we came even as far as to you in the Good News of Messiah, 

15 not boasting beyond proper limits in other men’s labors, but having hope that as your faith grows, we will be magnified in you according to our boundaries to abundance, 

16 so as to preach the Good News even to the parts beyond you, not to boast in what someone else has already done. 

17 But “he who boasts, let him boast in the Lord.” 

18 For it isn’t he who commends himself who is approved, but whom the Lord commends.

PSALMS: 18, 48, 78, 108, 138

PROVERBS: 18

OLD TESTAMENT: SONG OF SONGS 5:1 – 8:14

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 9:1 – 15

PSALMS: 18

1 I love you, LORD, my strength. 

2 The LORD is my rock,

and my fortress, and my deliverer;

My God, my rock, in whom I will take refuge;

My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower. 

3 I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised;

So shall I be saved from my enemies. 

4 The cords of death surrounded me.

The floods of ungodliness made me afraid. 

5 The cords of She’ol were round about me;

The snares of death came on me. 

6 In my distress I called on the LORD,

And cried to my God.

He heard my voice out of his temple,

My cry before him came into his ears. 

7 Then the eretz shook and trembled.

The foundations also of the mountains quaked and were shaken,

Because he was angry. 

8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils,

Fire out of his mouth devoured;

Coals were kindled by it. 

9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down.

Thick darkness was under his feet. 

10 He rode on a Keruv, and flew.

Yes, he soared on the wings of the wind. 

11 He made darkness his hiding-place, his pavilion around him,

Darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies. 

12 At the brightness before him his thick clouds passed,

Hailstones and coals of fire. 

13 The LORD also thundered in the sky,

The Elyon uttered his voice,

Hailstones and coals of fire.

14 He sent out his arrows, and scattered them;

Yes, lightnings manifold, and routed them. 

15 Then the channels of waters appeared,

The foundations of the world were laid bare,

At your rebuke, LORD,

At the blast of the breath of your nostrils. 

16 He sent from on high.

He took me.

He drew me out of many waters. 

17 He delivered me from my strong enemy,

From those who hated me;

for they were too mighty for me. 

18 They came on me in the day of my calamity,

But the LORD was my support. 

19 He brought me forth also into a large place.

He delivered me, because he delighted in me.

20 The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness.

According to the cleanness of my hands has he recompensed me.

21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD,

And have not wickedly departed from my God. 

22 For all his ordinances were before me.

I didn’t put away his statutes from me. 

23 I was also blameless with him.

I kept myself from my iniquity. 

24 Therefore has the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight. 

25 With the merciful you will show yourself merciful.

With the perfect man, you will show yourself perfect. 

26 With the pure, you will show yourself pure.

With the crooked you will show yourself shrewd. 

27 For you will save the afflicted people,

But the haughty eyes you will bring down. 

28 For you will light my lamp.

The LORD, my God, will light up my darkness.

29 For by you, I advance through a troop.

By my God, I leap over a wall. 

30 As for God, his way is perfect.

The word of the LORD is tried.

He is a shield to all those who take refuge in him. 

31 For who is God, except the LORD?

Who is a rock, besides our God, 

32 The God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect? 

33 He makes my feet like hinds’ feet,

And sets me on my high places. 

34 He teaches my hands to war;

So that my arms bend a bow of bronze.

35 You have also given me the shield of your salvation.

Your right hand sustains me.

Your gentleness has made me great. 

36 You have enlarged my steps under me,

My feet have not slipped. 

37 I will pursue my enemies, and overtake them.

Neither will I turn again until they are consumed. 

38 I will strike them through, so that they will not be able to rise.

They shall fall under my feet. 

39 For you have girded me with strength to the battle.

You have subdued under me those who rose up against me. 

40 You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me,

That I might cut off those who hate me. 

41 They cried, but there was none to save;

Even to the LORD, but he didn’t answer them. 

42 Then I beat them small as the dust before the wind.

I cast them out as the mire of the streets. 

43 You have delivered me from the strivings of the people.

You have made me the head of the nations.

A people whom I have not known shall serve me. 

44 As soon as they hear of me they shall obey me.

The foreigners shall submit themselves to me. 

45 The foreigners shall fade away,

And shall come trembling out of their close places. 

46 The LORD lives;

and blessed be my rock.

Exalted be the God of my salvation, 

47 Even the God who executes vengeance for me,

And subdues peoples under me. 

48 He rescues me from my enemies.

Yes, you lift me up above those who rise up against me.

You deliver me from the violent man. 

49 Therefore I will give thanks to you, LORD, among the nations,

And will sing praises to your name. 

50 He gives great deliverance to his king,

And shows loving kindness to his anointed,

To David and to his seed, forevermore.

PSALMS: 48

1 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised,

In the city of our God, in his holy mountain. 

2 Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole eretz,

Is Mount Tziyon, on the north sides,

The city of the great King. 

3 God has shown himself in her citadels as a refuge. 

4 For, behold, the kings assembled themselves,

They passed by together.

5 They saw it, then were they amazed.

They were dismayed,

They hurried away. 

6 Trembling took hold of them there,

Pain, as of a woman in travail. 

7  With the east wind, you break the ships of Tarshish. 

8 As we have heard, so have we seen,

In the city of the LORD of Hosts, in the city of our God.

God will establish it forever.

Selah. 

9 We have thought about your loving kindness,

God, In the midst of your temple. 

10 As is your name, God,

So is your praise to the ends of the eretz.

Your right hand is full of righteousness. 

11 Let Mount Tziyon be glad!

Let the daughters of Yehudah rejoice,

Because of your judgments. 

12 Walk about Tziyon, and go around her.

Number the towers of it; 

13 Mark well her bulwarks.

Consider her palaces, ‘

That you may tell it to the next generation. 

14 For this God is our God forever and ever.

He will be our guide even to death.

PSALMS: 78

1 Hear my law, my people.

Turn your ears to the words of my mouth. 

2 I will open my mouth in a parable.

I will utter dark sayings of old, 

3 Which we have heard and known,

Our fathers have told us.

4 We will not hide them from their children,

Telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD,

His strength, and his wondrous works that he has done. 

5 For he established a testimony in Ya`akov,

And appointed a law in Yisra’el,

Which he commanded our fathers,

That they should make them known to their children; 

6 That the generation to come might know,

even the children who should be born; Who should arise and tell their children, 

7 That they might set their hope in God,

And not forget the works of God,

But keep his mitzvot, 

8 And might not be as their fathers,

A stubborn and rebellious generation,

A generation that didn’t make their hearts loyal,

Whose spirit was not steadfast with God. 

9 The children of Efrayim, being armed and carrying bows,

Turned back in the day of battle. 

10 They didn’t keep the covenant of God,

And refused to walk in his law.

11 They forgot his doings,

His wondrous works that he had shown them. 

12 Marvelous things did he in the sight of their fathers,

In the land of Mitzrayim, in the field of Tzo`an. 

13 He split the sea, and caused them to pass through;

He made the waters stand as a heap.

14 In the daytime he also led them with a cloud,

All the night with a light of fire. 

15 He split rocks in the wilderness,

And gave them drink abundantly as out of the depths. 

16 He brought streams also out of the rock,

And caused waters to run down like rivers. 

17 Yet they still went on to sin against him,

To rebel against Ha`Elyon in the desert.

18 They tempted God in their heart

By asking food according to their desire. 

19 Yes, they spoke against God.

They said, “Can God prepare a table in the wilderness? 

20 Behold, he struck the rock, so that waters gushed out,

Streams overflowed.

Can he give bread also?

Will he provide flesh for his people?” 

21 Therefore the LORD heard, and was angry.

A fire was kindled against Ya`akov,

Anger also went up against Yisra’el, 

22 Because they didn’t believe in God,

And didn’t trust in his yeshu`ah. 

23 Yet he commanded the skies above,

And opened the doors of heaven. 

24 He rained down manna on them to eat,

And gave them food from the sky. 

25 Man ate the bread of angels.

He sent them food to the full. 

26 He caused the east wind to blow in the sky.

By his power he guided the south wind.

27 He rained also flesh on them as the dust;

Winged birds as the sand of the seas. 

28 He let them fall in the midst of their camp,

Around their habitations. 

29 So they ate, and were well filled.

He gave them their own desire. 

30 They didn’t turn from their cravings.

Their food was yet in their mouths, 

31 When the anger of God went up against them,

And killed some of the fattest of them,

And struck down the young men of Yisra’el. 

32 For all this they still sinned,

And didn’t believe in his wondrous works. 

33 Therefore he consumed their days in vanity,

And their years in terror. 

34 When he killed them, then they inquired after him.

They returned and sought God earnestly. 

35 They remembered that God was their rock, ‘

The El `Elyon their redeemer. 

36 But they flattered him with their mouth,

And lied to him with their tongue. 

37  For their heart was not right with him,

Neither were they faithful in his covenant. 

38 But he, being merciful, forgave iniquity,

and didn’t destroy them.

Yes, many times he turned his anger away,

And didn’t stir up all his wrath. 

39 He remembered that they were but flesh,

A wind that passes away, and doesn’t come again. 

40 How often did they rebel against him in the wilderness,

And grieve him in the desert! 

41 They turned again and tempted God,

And provoked the Holy One of Yisra’el. 

42 They didn’t remember his hand,

Nor the day when he redeemed them from the adversary; 

43 How he set his signs in Mitzrayim,

His wonders in the field of Tzo`an, 

44 Turned their rivers into blood,

Their streams, so that they could not drink. 

45 He sent among them swarms of flies, which devoured them;

Frogs, which destroyed them. 

46 He gave also their increase to the caterpillar,
Their labor to the arbeh. 

47 He destroyed their vines with hail,

Their sycamore-fig trees with frost.

48 He gave over their cattle also to the hail,

And their flocks to hot thunderbolts. 

49 He threw on them the fierceness of his anger,

Wrath, indignation, and trouble,

And a band of angels of evil. 

50 He made a path for his anger.

He didn’t spare their soul from death,

But gave their life over to the pestilence, 

51 And struck all the firstborn in Mitzrayim,

The chief of their strength in the tents of Ham. 

52 But he led forth his own people like sheep,

And guided them in the wilderness like a flock. 

53 He led them safely, so that they weren’t afraid,

But the sea overwhelmed their enemies. 

54 He brought them to the border of his sanctuary,

To this mountain, which his right hand had taken. 

55 He also drove out the nations before them,

Allotted them for an inheritance by line,

And made the tribes of Yisra’el to dwell in their tents. 

56 Yet they tempted and rebelled against

Ha`Elyon God, And didn’t keep his testimonies; 

57 But turned back, and dealt treacherously like their fathers.

They were turned aside like a deceitful bow. 

58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places,

And moved him to jealousy with their engraved images. 

59 When God heard this, he was angry,

And greatly abhorred Yisra’el;

60 So that he forsook the tent of Shiloh,

The tent which he placed among men; 

61 And delivered his strength into captivity,

His glory into the adversary’s hand. 

62 He also gave his people over to the sword,

And was angry with his inheritance. 

63 Fire devoured their young men;

Their virgins had no wedding song. 

64 Their Kohanim fell by the sword;

Their widows made no lamentation. 

65 Then the Lord awakened as one out of sleep,

Like a mighty man who shouts by reason of wine. 

66 He struck his adversaries backward.

He put them to a perpetual reproach. 

67 Moreover he rejected the tent of Yosef,

And didn’t choose the tribe of Efrayim, 

68 But chose the tribe of Yehudah,

Mount Tziyon which he loved. 

69 He built his sanctuary like the heights,

Like the eretz which he has established forever. 

70 He also chose David his servant,

And took him from the sheepfolds;

71 From following the ewes that have their young he brought him

To be the shepherd of Ya`akov, his people, and Yisra’el, his inheritance.

72 So he was their shepherd according to the integrity of his heart,

And guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.

PSALMS: 108

1 My heart is steadfast, God.

I will sing and I will make music with my soul. 

2 Wake up, harp and lyre!

I will wake up the dawn. 

3 I will give thanks to you, LORD, among the nations.

I will sing praises to you among the peoples. 

4 For your loving kindness is great above the heavens.

Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 

5 Be exalted, God, above the heavens,

Let your glory be over all the eretz. 

6 That your beloved may be delivered,

Save with your right hand, and answer us. 

7 God has spoken from his sanctuary:

“In triumph, I will divide Shekhem, and measure out the valley of Sukkot. 

8 Gil`ad is mine.

Menashsheh is mine.

Efrayim also is my helmet.

Yehudah is my scepter. 

9 Mo’av is my wash pot.

I will toss my sandal on Edom.

I will shout over Peleshet.” 

10 Who will bring me into the fortified city?

Who has led me to Edom? 

11 Haven’t you rejected us, God?

‘You don’t go forth, God, with our armies. 

12 Give us help against the enemy,

For the help of man is vain. 

13 Through God, we will do valiantly.

For it is he who will tread down our enemies.

PROVERBS: 18

1 An unfriendly man pursues selfishness,

And defies all sound judgment. 

2 A fool has no delight in understanding,

But only in broadcasting his own opinion. 

3 When wickedness comes, contempt also comes,

And with shame comes disgrace. 

4 The words of a man’s mouth are like deep waters.

The fountain of wisdom is like a flowing brook. 

5 To be partial to the faces of the wicked is not good,

Nor to deprive the innocent of justice. 

6 A fool’s lips come into strife,

And his mouth invites beatings. 

7 A fool’s mouth is his destruction,

And his lips are a snare to his soul. 

8 The words of a gossip are like dainty morsels:

They go down into a person’s innermost parts. 

9 One who is slack in his work

Is brother to him who is a master of destruction. 

10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower:

The righteous run to him, and are safe. 

11 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city,

Like an unscalable wall in his own imagination. 

12 Before destruction the heart of man is proud,

But before honor is humility. 

13 He who gives answer before he hears,

That is folly and shame to him. 

14 A man’s spirit will sustain him in sickness,

But a crushed spirit who can bear? 

15 The heart of the discerning gets knowledge.

The ear of the wise seeks knowledge.

16 A man’s gift makes room for him,

And brings him before great men. 

17  He who pleads his cause first seems right;

Until another comes and questions him. 

18 The lot settles disputes,

And keeps strong ones apart. 

19 A brother offended is more difficult than a fortified city;

And disputes are like the bars of a castle. 

20 A man’s stomach is filled with the fruit of his mouth.

With the harvest of his lips he is satisfied. 

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue;

Those who love it will eat its fruit. 

22 Whoever finds a wife finds a good thing,

And obtains favor of the LORD. 

23 The poor pleads for mercy,

But the rich answers harshly. 

24 A man of many companions may be ruined,

But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

OLD TESTAMENT: SONG OF SONGS 5:1 – 8:14

5:1 I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride. I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk. Friends Eat, friends! Drink, yes, drink abundantly, beloved. Beloved 2 I was asleep, but my heart was awake. It is the voice of my beloved who knocks: Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled; For my head is filled with dew, My hair with the dampness of the night. 3 I have taken off my robe. Indeed, must I put it on? I have washed my feet. Indeed, must I soil them? 4 My beloved thrust his hand in through the latch opening. My heart pounded for him. 5 I rose up to open for my beloved. My hands dripped with myrrh, My fingers with liquid myrrh, On the handles of the lock. 6 I opened to my beloved; But my beloved left; gone away. My heart went out when he spoke. I looked for him, but I didn’t find him. I called him, but he didn’t answer. 7 The watchmen who go about the city found me. They beat me. They bruised me. The keepers of the walls took my cloak away from me. 8 I adjure you, daughters of Yerushalayim, If you find my beloved, That you tell him that I am faint with love. Friends 9 How is your beloved better than another beloved, You fairest among women? How is your beloved better than another beloved, That you do so adjure us? Beloved 10 My beloved is white and ruddy. The best among ten thousand. 11 His head is like the purest gold. His hair is bushy, black as a raven. 12 His eyes are like doves beside the water brooks, Washed with milk, mounted like jewels. 13 His cheeks are like a bed of spices with towers of perfumes. His lips are like lilies, dropping liquid myrrh. 14 His hands are like rings of gold set with bareket. His body is like ivory work overlaid with sapphires. 15 His legs are like pillars of marble set on sockets of fine gold. His appearance is like Levanon, excellent as the cedars. 16 His mouth is sweetness; Yes, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, Daughters of Yerushalayim. Friends

6:1 Where has your beloved gone, you fairest among women? Where has your beloved turned, that we may seek him with you? Beloved 2 My beloved has gone down to his garden, To the beds of spices, To feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies. 3 I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine. He browses among the lilies, 4 You are beautiful, my love, as Tirtzah, Lovely as Yerushalayim, Awesome as an army with banners. 5 Turn away your eyes from me, For they have overcome me. Your hair is like a flock of goats, That lie along the side of Gil`ad. 6 Your teeth are like a flock of ewes, Which have come up from the washing; Of which every one has twins; None is bereaved among them. 7 Your temples are like a piece of a pomegranate behind your veil. 8 There are sixty queens, eighty concubines, And virgins without number. 9 My dove, my perfect one, is unique. She is her mother’s only daughter. She is the favorite one of her who bore her. The daughters saw her, and called her blessed, The queens and the concubines, and they praised her. 10 Who is she who looks forth as the morning, Beautiful as the moon, Clear as the sun, Awesome as an army with banners? 11 I went down into the nut tree grove, To see the green plants of the valley, To see whether the vine budded, And the pomegranates were in flower.12 Without realizing it, My desire set me with my royal people’s chariots. Friends 13 Return, return, Shulammite! Return, return, that we may gaze at you. Lover Why do you desire to gaze at the Shulammite, As at the dance of Machanayim?

7:1 How beautiful are your feet in sandals, prince’s daughter! Your rounded thighs are like jewels, The work of the hands of a skillful workman. 2 Your body is like a round goblet, No mixed wine is wanting. Your waist is like a heap of wheat, Set about with lilies. 3 Your two breasts are like two fawns, That are twins of a roe. 4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are like the pools in Heshbon by the gate of Bath-rabbim; Your nose is like the tower of Levanon which looks toward Dammesek. 5 Your head on you is like Karmel, The hair of your head like purple; The king is held captive in its tresses. 6 How beautiful and how pleasant are you, Love, for delights! 7 This, your stature, is like a palm tree, Your breasts like its fruit. 8 I said, “I will climb up into the palm tree. I will take hold of its fruit.” Let your breasts be like clusters of the vine, The smell of your breath like apples, Beloved 9 Your mouth like the best wine, That goes down smoothly for my beloved, Gliding through the lips of those who are asleep. 10 I am my beloved’s. His desire is toward me. 11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field. Let us lodge in the villages. 12 Let’s go early up to the vineyards. Let’s see whether the vine has budded, Its blossom is open, And the pomegranates are in flower. There I will give you my love. 13 The dudaim give forth fragrance. At our doors are all kinds of precious fruits, new and old, Which I have stored up for you, my beloved.

8:1 Oh that you were like my brother, Who sucked the breasts of my mother! If I found you outside, I would kiss you; Yes, and no one would despise me. 2 I would lead you, bringing you into my mother’s house, Who would instruct me. I would have you drink spiced wine, Of the juice of my pomegranate. 3 His left hand would be under my head. His right hand would embrace me. 4 I adjure you, daughters of Yerushalayim, That you not stir up, nor awaken love, Until it so desires. Friends 5 Who is this who comes up from the wilderness, Leaning on her beloved? Under the apple tree I aroused you. There your mother conceived you. There she was in labor and bore you. 6 Set me as a seal on your heart, As a seal on your arm; For love is strong as death. Jealousy is as cruel as She’ol; Its flashes are flashes of fire, A very flame of the LORD. 7 Many waters can’t quench love, Neither can floods drown it. If a man would give all the wealth of his house for love, He would be utterly scorned. Friends 8 We have a little sister. She has no breasts. What shall we do for our sister In the day when she is to be spoken for? 9If she is a wall, We will build on her a turret of silver. If she is a door, We will enclose her with boards of cedar. Beloved 10 I am a wall, and my breasts like towers, Then I was in his eyes like one who found shalom. 11 Shlomo had a vineyard at Baal-hamon. He leased out the vineyard to keepers. Each was to bring a thousand shekels of silver for its fruit. 12 My own vineyard is before me. The thousand are for you, Shlomo; Two hundred for those who tend its fruit. Lover 13 You who dwell in the gardens, with friends in attendance, Let me hear your voice! Beloved 14 Come away, my beloved! Be like a gazelle or a young stag on the mountains of spices!

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 9:1 – 15

9:1 It is indeed unnecessary for me to write to you concerning the service to the holy ones, 

2 for I know your readiness, of which I boast on your behalf to them of Macedonia, that Achaia has been prepared for a year past. Your zeal has stirred up very many of them.

3 But I have sent the brothers, that our glorying on your behalf may not be made void in this respect, that, even as I said, you may be prepared, 

4 so that I won’t by any means, if there come with me any of Macedonia and find you unprepared, we (to say nothing of you) should be put to shame in this confident boasting. 

5 I thought it necessary therefore to entreat the brothers that they would go before to you, and arrange ahead of time the generous gift that you promised before, that the same might be ready as a matter of generosity, and not of greediness. 

6 Remember this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly. He who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

7 Let each man give according as he has determined in his heart; not grudgingly, or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver.

8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that you, always having all sufficiency in everything, may abound to every good work.

9 As it is written, “He has scattered abroad, he has given to the poor. His righteousness remains forever.” 

10 Now may he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food, supply and multiply your seed for sowing, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;

11 you being enriched in everything to all liberality, which works through us thanksgiving to God. 

12 For this service of giving that you perform not only makes up for lack among the holy ones, but abounds also through many givings of thanks to God; 

13 seeing that through the proof given by this service, they glorify God for the obedience of your confession to the Good News of Messiah, and for the liberality of your contribution to them and to all; 

14 while they themselves also, with supplication on your behalf, yearn for you by reason of the exceeding grace of God in you. 

15 Now thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift!

PSALMS: 17, 47, 77, 107, 137

PROVERBS: 16

OLD TESTAMENT: SONG OF SONGS 1:1 – 4:16

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 8:16 – 24

PSALMS: 17

1 Hear, LORD, my righteous plea;

Give ear to my prayer, that doesn’t go out of deceitful lips. 

2 Let my sentence come forth from your presence;

Let your eyes look on equity. 

3 You have proved my heart;

you have visited me in the night;

You have tried me, and found nothing;

I have resolved that my mouth shall not disobey. 

4 As for the works of men,

by the word of your lips I have kept myself from the ways of the violent. 

5 My steps have held fast to your paths,

My feet have not slipped. 

6 I have called on you, for you will answer me, God:

Turn your ear to me.

Hear my speech. 

7 Show your marvelous loving kindness,

You who save those who take refuge by

your right hand from their enemies. 

8 Keep me as the apple of your eye;

Hide me under the shadow of your wings, 

9 From the wicked who oppress me,

My deadly enemies, who compass me about. 

10 They close up their callous hearts.

With their mouth they speak proudly.

11 They have now surrounded us in our steps.

They set their eyes to cast us down to the eretz. 

12 He is like a lion that is greedy of his prey,

As it were a young lion lurking in secret places. 

13 Arise, LORD, Confront him, cast him down.

Deliver my soul from the wicked by your sword; 

14 From men by your hand, LORD,

From men of the world, whose portion is in this life,

Whose belly you fill with your treasure:

They are satisfied with children,

Leave the rest of their substance to their babes. 

15 As for me, I shall see your face in righteousness;

I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with seeing your form.

PSALMS: 47

1 Oh clap your hands, all you nations.

Shout to God with the voice of triumph! 

2 For the LORD Elyon is awesome.

He is a great King over all the eretz. 

3 He subdues nations under us,

And peoples under our feet. 

4 He chooses our inheritance for us,

The glory of Ya`akov whom he loved.

Selah. 

5 God has gone up with a shout,

The LORD with the sound of a shofar. 

6 Sing praise to God, sing praises.

Sing praises to our King, sing praises. 

7 For God is the King of all the eretz.

Sing praises with understanding. 

8 God reigns over the nations.

God sits on his holy throne. 

9 The princes of the peoples are gathered together,

The people of the God of Avraham.

For the shields of the eretz belong to God.

He is greatly exalted!

PSALMS: 77

1 My cry goes to God! Indeed,

I cry to God for help,

And for him to listen to me. 

2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord.

My hand was stretched out in the night, and didn’t get tired.

My soul refused to be comforted. 

3 I remember God, and I groan.

I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed.

Selah. 

4 You hold my eyelids open.

I am so troubled that I can’t speak. 

5 I have considered the days of old,

The years of ancient times. 

6 I remember my song in the night.

I consider in my own heart;

My spirit diligently inquires: 

7 “Will the Lord reject us forever?

Will he be favorable no more? 

8 Has his loving kindness vanished forever?

Does his promise fail for generations? 

9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?

Has he, in anger, withheld his compassion?”

Selah. 

10Then I thought,

“I will appeal to this:

The years of the right hand of Ha`Elyon.” 

11 I will remember the LORD’s deeds;

For I will remember your wonders of old. 

12 I will also meditate on all your work,

And consider your doings. 

13 Your way, God, is in the sanctuary.

What god is great like God? 

14 You are the God who does wonders.

You have made your strength known among the peoples. 

15 You have redeemed your people with your arm,

The sons of Ya`akov and Yosef. Selah. 

16 The waters saw you, God.

The waters saw you, and they writhed.

The depths also convulsed.

17 The clouds poured out water.

The skies resounded with thunder.

Your arrows also flashed around. 

18 The voice of your thunder was in the whirlwind.

The lightnings lit up the world.

The eretz trembled and shook. 

19 Your way was through the sea;

Your paths through the great waters.

Your footsteps were not known. 

20 You led your people like a flock,

By the hand of Moshe and Aharon.

PSALMS: 107

1 Give thanks to the LORD,

For he is good,

For his loving kindness endures forever. 

2 Let the redeemed by the LORD say so,

Whom he has redeemed from the hand of the adversary, 

3 Gathered out of the lands,

From the east and from the west,

From the north and from the south. 

4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way.

They found no city to live in. 

5 Hungry and thirsty,

Their soul fainted in them. 

6 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,

And he delivered them out of their distresses, 

7 He led them also by a straight way,

That they might go to a city to live in. 

8 Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness,

For his wonderful works to the children of men! 

9 For he satisfies the longing soul.

He fills the hungry soul with good. 

10 Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death,

Being bound in affliction and iron, 

11 Because they rebelled against the words of God,

And condemned the counsel of Ha`Elyon. 

12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labor.

They fell down, and there was none to help. 

13 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,

And he saved them out of their distresses. 

14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death,

And broke their bonds in sunder. 

15 Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness,

For his wonderful works to the children of men! 

16 For he has broken the gates of brass,

And cut through bars of iron.

17  Fools are afflicted because of their disobedience,

And because of their iniquities. 

18 Their soul abhors all kinds of food.

They draw near to the gates of death. 

19 Then they cry to the LORD in their trouble,

He saves them out of their distresses. 

20 He sends his word, and heals them,

And delivers them from their graves. 

21 Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness,

For his wonderful works to the children of men! 

22 Let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving,

And declare his works with singing. 

23 Those who go down to the sea in ships,

Who do business in great waters; 

24 These see the LORD’s works,

And his wonders in the deep. 

25 For he commands, and raises the stormy wind,

Which lifts up its waves.

26 They mount up to the sky;

they go down again to the depths.

Their soul melts away because of trouble. 

27 They reel back and forth, and stagger like a drunken man,

And are at their wits’ end. 

28 Then they cry to the LORD in their trouble,

He brings them out of their distress. 

29 He makes the storm a calm,

So that its waves are still.

30 Then are they glad because it is calm,

So he brings them to their desired haven. 

31 Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness,

For his wonderful works to the children of men! 

32 Let them exalt him also in the assembly of the people,

And praise him in the seat of the Zakenim. 

33 He turns rivers into a desert,

Water springs into a thirsty ground, 

34 And a fruitful land into a salt waste,

For the wickedness of those who dwell in it. 

35 He turns a desert into a pool of water,

And a dry land into water springs. 

36 There he makes the hungry to live,

That they may prepare a city to live in, 

37  Sow fields, plant vineyards,

And reap the fruits of increase. 

38 He blesses them also, so that they are multiplied greatly.

He doesn’t allow their cattle to decrease. 

39 Again, they are diminished and bowed down

Through oppression, trouble, and sorrow. 

40 He pours contempt on princes,

And causes them to wander in a trackless waste. 

41 Yet he lifts the needy out of their affliction,

And increases their families like a flock.

42 The upright will see it, and be glad.

All the wicked will shut their mouths. 

43 Whoever is wise will pay attention to these things.

They will consider the loving

kindnesses of the LORD.

PSALMS: 137

1 By the rivers of Bavel, there we sat down.

Yes, we wept, when we remembered Tziyon. 

2 On the willows in the midst of it,

We hung up our harps. 

3 For there, those who led us captive asked us for songs.

Those who tormented us demanded songs of joy:

“Sing us one of the songs of Tziyon!” 

4 How can we sing the LORD’s song in a foreign land? 

5 If I forget you, Yerushalayim,

Let my right hand forget its skill. 

6 Let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth,

If I don’t remember you;

If I don’t prefer Yerushalayim above my chief joy. 

7 Remember, LORD, against the children of Edom,

The day of Yerushalayim;

Who said, “Raze it! Raze it even to its foundation!” 

8 Daughter of Bavel, doomed to destruction,

He will be happy who rewards you,

As you have served us. 

9 Happy shall he be,

Who takes and dashes your little ones against the rock.

PROVERBS: 17

1 Better is a dry morsel with quietness,

Than a house full of feasting with strife. 

2 A servant who deals wisely will rule over a son who causes shame,

And shall have a part in the inheritance among the brothers. 

3 The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold,

But the LORD tests the hearts. 

4 An evil-doer gives heed to wicked lips.

A liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue. 

5 Whoever mocks the poor reproaches his Maker.

He who is glad at calamity shall not be unpunished. 

6 Children’s children are the crown of old men;

The glory of children are their parents. 

7 Arrogant speech isn’t fitting for a fool,

Much less do lying lips fit a prince. 

8 A bribe is a precious stone in the eyes of him who gives it;

Wherever he turns, he prospers.

9 He who covers an offense promotes love;

But he who repeats a matter separates best friends. 

10 A rebuke enters deeper into one who has understanding

Than a hundred lashes into a fool. 

11 An evil man seeks only rebellion;

Therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him. 

12 Let a bear robbed of her cubs meet a man,

Rather than a fool in his folly. 

13 Whoever rewards evil for good,

Evil shall not depart from his house. 

14 The beginning of strife is like breaching a dam,

Therefore stop contention before quarreling breaks out. 

15 He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the righteous,

Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD. 

16 Why is there money in the hand of a fool to buy wisdom,

Seeing he has no understanding? 

17 A friend loves at all times;

And a brother is born for adversity. 

18 A man void of understanding strikes hands,

And becomes collateral in the presence of his neighbor. 

19 He who loves disobedience loves strife.

One who builds a high gate seeks destruction. 

20 One who has a perverse heart doesn’t find prosperity,

And one who has a deceitful tongue falls into trouble. 

21 He who becomes the father of a fool grieves.

The father of a fool has no joy. 

22 A cheerful heart makes good medicine,

But a crushed spirit dries up the bones. 

23 A wicked man receives a bribe in secret,

To pervert the ways of justice. 

24 Wisdom is before the face of one who has understanding,

But the eyes of a fool wander to the ends of the eretz. 

25 A foolish son brings grief to his father,

And bitterness to her who bore him. 

26 Also to punish the righteous is not good,

Nor to flog officials for their integrity. 

27 He who spares his words has knowledge.

He who is even tempered is a man of understanding. 

28 Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is counted wise.

When he shuts his lips, he is thought to be discerning.

OLD TESTAMENT: SONG OF SONGS 1:1 – 4:16

1:1 The Song of songs, which is Shlomo’s. Beloved 2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; For your love is better than wine. 3 Your oils have a pleasing fragrance. Your name is oil poured forth, Therefore the alamot love you. 4 Take me away with you. Let us hurry. The king has brought me into his chambers. Friends We will be glad and rejoice in you. We will praise your love more than wine! Beloved They are right to love you. 5 I am dark, but lovely, You daughters of Yerushalayim, Like Kedar’s tents, Like Shlomo’s curtains. 6 Don’t stare at me because I am dark, Because the sun has scorched me. My mother’s sons were angry with me. They made me keeper of the vineyards. I haven’t kept my own vineyard. 7 Tell me, you whom my soul loves, Where you graze your flock, Where you rest them at noon; For why should I be as one who is veiled Beside the flocks of your companions? Lover 8 If you don’t know, most beautiful among women, Follow the tracks of the sheep. Graze your young goats beside the shepherds’ tents. 9 I have compared you, my love, To a steed in Par`oh’s chariots. 10 Your cheeks are beautiful with earrings, Your neck with strings of jewels. 11 We will make you earrings of gold, With studs of silver. Beloved 12 While the king sat at his table, My perfume spread its fragrance. 13 My beloved is to me a sachet of myrrh, That lies between my breasts. 14 My beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms From the vineyards of En Gedi. Lover 15 Behold, you are beautiful, my love. Behold, you are beautiful. Your eyes are doves. Beloved 16 Behold, you are beautiful, my beloved, yes, pleasant; And our couch is verdant. Lover 17 The beams of our house are cedars. Our rafters are firs. Beloved

2:1 I am a rose of Sharon, A lily of the valleys. 2 As a lily among thorns, So is my love among the daughters. Beloved 3 As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, So is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, His fruit was sweet to my taste. 4 He brought me to the banquet hall. His banner over me is love. 5 Strengthen me with raisins, Refresh me with apples; For I am faint with love. 6 His left hand is under my head. His right hand embraces me. 7 I adjure you, daughters of Yerushalayim, By the roes, or by the hinds of the field, That you not stir up, nor awaken love, Until it so desires. 8 The voice of my beloved! Behold, he comes, Leaping on the mountains, Skipping on the hills. 9 My beloved is like a roe or a young hart. Behold, he stands behind our wall! He looks in at the windows. He glances through the lattice. 10 My beloved spoke, and said to me, Rise up, my love, my beautiful one, and come away. 11 For, behold, the winter is past. The rain is over and gone. 12 The flowers appear on the eretz; The time of the singing has come, And the voice of the turtle-dove is heard in our land. 13 The fig tree ripens her green figs. The vines are in blossom; They give forth their fragrance. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, And come away. Lover 14 My dove in the clefts of the rock, In the hiding places of the mountainside, Let me see your face. Let me hear your voice; For your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely. 15 Catch for us the foxes, The little foxes that spoil the vineyards; For our vineyards are in blossom. Beloved 16 My beloved is mine, and I am his. He browses among the lilies. 17 Until the day is cool, and the shadows flee away, Turn, my beloved, And be like a roe or a young hart on the mountains of Bether.

3:1 By night on my bed, I sought him whom my soul loves. I sought him, but I didn’t find him. 2 I will get up now, and go about the city; In the streets and in the squares I will seek him whom my soul loves. I sought him, but I didn’t find him. 3 The watchmen who go about the city found me; “Have you seen him whom my soul loves?” 4 I had scarcely passed from them, When I found him whom my soul loves. I held him, and would not let him go, Until I had brought him into my mother’s house, Into the chamber of her who conceived me. 5 I adjure you, daughters of Yerushalayim, By the roes, or by the hinds of the field, That you not stir up, nor awaken love, Until it so desires. 6 Who is this who comes up from the wilderness like pillars of smoke, Perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, With all spices of the merchant? 7 Behold, it is Shlomo’s carriage! Sixty mighty men are around it, Of the mighty men of Yisra’el. 8 They all handle the sword, and are expert in war. Every man has his sword on his thigh, Because of fear in the night. 9 King Shlomo made himself a carriage Of the wood of Levanon. 10 He made its pillars of silver, Its bottom of gold, its seat of purple, Its midst being paved with love, From the daughters of Yerushalayim. 11 Go forth, you daughters of Tziyon, and see king Shlomo, With the crown with which his mother has crowned him, In the day of his weddings, In the day of the gladness of his heart. Lover

4:1 Behold, you are beautiful, my love. Behold, you are beautiful. Your eyes are doves behind your veil. Your hair is as a flock of goats, That descend from Mount Gil`ad. 2 Your teeth are like a newly shorn flock, Which have come up from the washing, Where every one of them has twins. None is bereaved among them. 3 Your lips are like scarlet thread. Your mouth is lovely. Your temples are like a piece of a pomegranate behind your veil. 4 Your neck is like David’s tower built for an armory, Whereon there hang a thousand shields, All the shields of the mighty men. 5 Your two breasts are like two fawns That are twins of a roe, Which feed among the lilies. 6 Until the day is cool, and the shadows flee away, I will go to the mountain of myrrh, To the hill of frankincense. 7 You are all beautiful, my love. There is no spot in you. 8 Come with me from Levanon, my bride, With me from Levanon. Look from the top of Amana, From the top of Senir and Hermon, From the lions’ dens, From the mountains of the leopards. 9 You have ravished my heart, my sister, my bride. You have ravished my heart with one of your eyes, With one chain of your neck. 10 How beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much better is your love than wine! The fragrance of your perfumes than all manner of spices! 11 Your lips, my bride, drip like the honeycomb. Honey and milk are under your tongue. The smell of your garments is like the smell of Levanon. 12 A locked up garden is my sister, my bride; A locked up spring, A sealed fountain. 13 Your shoots are an orchard of pomegranates, with precious fruits: Henna with spikenard plants, 14 Spikenard and saffron, Calamus and cinnamon, with every kind of incense tree; Myrrh and aloes, with all the best spices, 15 A fountain of gardens, A well of living waters, Flowing streams from Levanon. Beloved 16 Awake, north wind; and come, you south; Blow on my garden, that its spices may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, And taste his precious fruits. Lover

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 8:16 – 24

8:16 But thanks be to God, who puts the same earnest care for you into the heart of Titus. 

17 For he indeed accepted our exhortation, but being himself very earnest, he went forth to you of his own accord.

18 We have sent together with him the brother whose praise in the Good News is known through all the assemblies. 

19 Not only so, but who was also appointed by the assemblies to travel with us in this grace, which is served by us to the glory of the Lord himself, and to show our readiness. 

20 We are avoiding this, that any man should blame us in concerning this bounty which is served by us. 

21Having regard for honorable things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men. 

22 We have sent with them our brother, whom we have many times proved earnest in many things, but now much more earnest, by reason of the great confidence which he has in you. 

23 As for Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker toward you. As for our brothers, they are the messengers of the assemblies, the glory of Messiah. 

24 Therefore show the proof of your love to them in front of the assemblies, and of our boasting on your behalf.

PSALMS: 16, 46, 76, 106, 136

PROVERBS: 16

OLD TESTAMENT: ECCLESIASTES 10:1 – 12:14

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 8:1 – 15

PSALMS: 16

1 Preserve me, God, for in you do I take refuge. 

2 My soul, you have said to the LORD,

“You are my Lord.

Apart from you I have no good thing.” 

3 As for the holy ones who are in the eretz,

They are the excellent ones in whom is all my delight. 

4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied who give gifts to another god.

Their drink-offerings of blood I will not offer,

Nor take their names on my lips. 

5 The LORD assigned my portion and my cup.

You made my lot secure. 

6 The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places.

Yes, I have a good inheritance. 

7  I will bless the LORD, who has given me counsel.

Yes, my heart instructs me in the night seasons. 

8 I have set the LORD always before me.

Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 

9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my tongue rejoices.

My body shall also dwell in safety. 

10 For you will not leave my soul in She’ol,

Neither will you allow your holy one to see corruption. 

11 You will show me the path of life.

In your presence is fullness of joy.

In your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.

PSALMS: 46

1 God is our refuge and strength,

A very present help in trouble.

2 Therefore will we not be afraid, though the eretz changes,

Though the mountains are shaken into the heart of the seas; 

3 Though the waters of it roar and are troubled,

Though the mountains tremble with the swelling of it. Selah. 

4 There is a river, the streams of which make the city of God glad,

The holy place of the tents of Ha`Elyon.

5 God is in the midst of her.

She shall not be moved.

God will help her at dawn. 

6 The nations raged. The kingdoms were moved.

He uttered his voice, and the eretz melted. 

7  The LORD of Hosts is with us.

The God of Ya`akov is our refuge. Selah. 

8 Come, see the works of the LORD,

What desolations he has made in the eretz. 

9 He makes wars cease to the end of the eretz.

He breaks the bow, and cuts the spear apart.

He burns the chariots in the fire. 

10 “Be still, and know that I am God.

I will be exalted among the nations.

I will be exalted in the eretz.” 

11 The LORD of Hosts is with us.

The God of Ya`akov is our refuge. Selah.

PSALMS: 76

1 In Yehudah, God is known.

His name is great in Yisra’el. 

2 His tent is also in Shalem;

His dwelling-place in Tziyon. 

3 There he broke the flaming arrows of the bow,

The shield, and the sword, and the weapons of war.

Selah. 

4 Glorious are you, and excellent,

More than mountains of game. 

5 Valiant men lie plundered,

They have slept their last sleep.

None of the men of war can lift their hands. 

6 At your rebuke, God of Ya`akov,

Both chariot and horse are cast into a deep sleep. 

7 You, even you, are to be feared.

Who can stand in your sight when you are angry? 

8 You pronounced judgment from heaven.

The eretz feared, and was silent, 

9 When God arose to judgment,

To save all the afflicted ones of the eretz. Selah. 

10 Surely the wrath of man praises you.

The survivors of your wrath are restrained. 

11 Make vows to the LORD your God, and fulfill them!

Let all of his neighbors bring presents to him who is to be feared. 

12 He will cut off the spirit of princes.

He is feared by the kings of the eretz.

PSALMS: 106

1 Praise the LORD!

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,

For his loving kindness endures forever. 

2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD,

Or fully declare all his praise? 

3 Blessed are those who keep justice,

He who does righteousness at all times. 

4 Remember me, LORD, with the favor that you show to your people.

Visit me with your yeshu`ah, 

5 That I may see the prosperity of your chosen,

That I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation,

That I may glory with your inheritance. 

6 We have sinned with our fathers.

We have committed iniquity.

We have done wickedly. 

7  Our fathers didn’t understand your wonders in Mitzrayim.

They didn’t remember the multitude of your loving kindnesses,

But were rebellious at the sea, even at the Sea of Suf. 

8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake,

That he might make his mighty power known. 

9 He rebuked the Sea of Suf also, and it was dried up;

So he led them through the depths, as through a desert. 

10 He saved them from the hand of him who hated them,

And redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 

11 The waters covered their adversaries.

There was not one of them left. 

12 Then they believed his words.

They sang his praise. 

13 They soon forgot his works.

They didn’t wait for his counsel, 

14 But gave in to craving in the desert,

And tested God in the wasteland. 

15 He gave them their request,

But sent leanness into their soul. 

16 They envied Moshe also in the camp,

And Aharon, the LORD’s holy one. 

17 The eretz opened and swallowed up Datan,

And covered the company of Aviram. 

18 A fire was kindled in their company.

The flame burned up the wicked. 

19 They made a calf in Horev,

And worshiped a molten image. 

20 Thus they exchanged their glory

For an image of a bull that eats grass. 

21 They forgot God, their Savior,

Who had done great things in Mitzrayim, 

22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham,

And awesome things by the Sea of Suf. 

23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them,

Had Moshe, his chosen, not stood before him in the breach,

To turn away his wrath, so that he wouldn’t destroy them. 

24 Yes, they despised the pleasant land.

They didn’t believe his word, 

25 But murmured in their tents,

And didn’t listen to the voice of the LORD.

26 Therefore he swore to them

That he would overthrow them in the wilderness, 

27 That he would overthrow their seed among the nations,

And scatter them in the lands. 

28 They joined themselves also to Ba`al-Pe`or,

And ate the sacrifices of the dead. 

29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their deeds.

The plague broke in on them.

30 Then Pinechas stood up, and executed judgment,

So the plague was stopped. 

31 That was credited to him for righteousness,

To all generations forevermore. 

32 They angered him also at the waters of Merivah,

So that Moshe was troubled for their sakes; 

33 Because they were rebellious against his spirit,

He spoke rashly with his lips.

34 They didn’t destroy the peoples,

As the LORD commanded them, 

35 But mixed themselves with the nations,

Learned their works. 

36 They served their idols,

Which became a snare to them.

37  Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons.

38 They shed innocent blood,

Even the blood of their sons and of their daughters,

Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Kana`an.

The land was polluted with blood. 

39 Thus were they defiled with their works,

And prostituted themselves in their deeds. 

40 Therefore the wrath of the LORD was kindled against his people.

He abhorred his inheritance. 

41 He gave them into the hand of the nations.

Those who hated them ruled over them. 

42 Their enemies also oppressed them.

They were brought into subjection under their hand. 

43 Many times he delivered them,

But they were rebellious in their counsel,

And were brought low in their iniquity. 

44 Nevertheless he regarded their distress,

When he heard their cry. 

45 He remembered for them his covenant,

And repented according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses. 

46 He made them also to be pitied

By all those who carried them captive. 

47 Save us, LORD, our God,

Gather us from among the nations,

To give thanks to your holy name,

To triumph in your praise! 

48 Blessed be the LORD, the God of Yisra’el,

From everlasting even to everlasting!

Let all the people say, ‘

“Amein.

” Praise the LORD!

PSALMS: 136

1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;

For his loving kindness endures forever. 

2 Give thanks to the God of gods;

For his loving kindness endures forever. 

3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

4 To him who alone does great wonders;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

5 To him who by understanding made the heavens;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

6 To him who spread out the eretz above the waters;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

7  To him who made the great lights;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

8 The sun to rule by day;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

9 The moon and stars to rule by night;

For his loving kindness endures forever:

10 To him who struck down the Mitzrian firstborn;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

11 And brought out Yisra’el from among them;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

12 With a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

13 To him who divided the Sea of Suf apart;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

14 Made Yisra’el to pass through the midst of it;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

15 But overthrew Par`oh and his host in the Sea of Suf;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

16 To him who led his people through the wilderness;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

17 To him who struck great kings;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

18 And killed mighty kings;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

19 Sichon king of the Amori;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

20 `Og king of Bashan;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

21 And gave their land as an inheritance;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

22 Even a heritage to Yisra’el his servant;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

23 Who remembered us in our low estate;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

24 And has delivered us from our adversaries;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

25 Who gives food to every creature;

For his loving kindness endures forever. 

26 Oh give thanks to the God of heaven;

For his loving kindness endures forever.

PROVERBS: 16

1 The plans of the heart belong to man,

But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. 

2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes;

But the LORD weighs the motives. 

3 Commit your deeds to the LORD,

And your plans shall succeed. 

4 The LORD has made everything for its own end —

Yes, even the wicked for the day of evil.

5 Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD:

They shall assuredly not be unpunished. 

6 By mercy and truth iniquity is atoned for.

By the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.

7 When a man’s ways please the LORD,

He makes even his enemies to be at shalom with him. 

8 Better is a little with righteousness,

Than great revenues with injustice. 

9 A man’s heart plans his course,

But the LORD directs his steps. 

10 Inspired judgments are on the lips of the king.

He shall not betray his mouth.

11 Honest balances and scales are the LORD’s;

All the weights in the bag are his work. 

12 It is an abomination for kings to do wrong,

For the throne is established by righteousness. 

13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings.

They value one who speaks the truth. 

14 The king’s wrath is a messenger of death,

But a wise man will pacify it. 

15 In the light of the king’s face is life.

His favor is like a cloud of the spring rain. 

16 How much better it is to get wisdom than gold!

Yes, to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver. 

17  The highway of the upright is to depart from evil.

He who keeps his way preserves his soul. 

18 Pride goes before destruction,

A haughty spirit before a fall. 

19 It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor,

Than to divide the plunder with the proud. 

20 He who gives heed to the Word finds prosperity.

Whoever trusts in the LORD is blessed.

21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent.

Pleasantness of the lips promotes instruction. 

22 Understanding is a fountain of life to one who has it,

But the punishment of fools is their folly. 

23 The heart of the wise instructs his mouth,

And adds learning to his lips.

24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb,

Sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. 

25 There is a way which seems right to a man,

But in the end it leads to death. 

26 The appetite of the laboring man labors for him;

For his mouth urges him on. 

27 A worthless man devises mischief.

His speech is like a scorching fire. 

28 A perverse man stirs up strife.

A whisperer separates close friends. 

29 A man of violence entices his neighbor,

And leads him in a way that is not good. 

30 One who winks his eyes to plot perversities,

One who compresses his lips, is bent on evil. 

31 Gray hair is a crown of glory.

It is attained by a life of righteousness. 

32 One who is slow to anger is better than the mighty;

One who rules his spirit, than he who takes a city. 

33 The lot is cast into the lap,

But its every decision is from the LORD.

OLD TESTAMENT: ECCLESIASTES 10:1 – 12:14

10:1 Dead flies cause the oil of the perfumer to send forth an evil odor; so does a little folly outweigh wisdom and honor. 2 A wise man’s heart is at his right hand, but a fool’s heart at his left. 3 Yes also, when the fool walks by the way, his understanding fails him, and he says to everyone that he is a fool. 4 If the spirit of the ruler rises up against you, don’t leave your place; for gentleness lays great offenses to rest. 5 There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, the sort of error which proceeds from the ruler. 6 Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in a low place. 7 I have seen servants on horses, and princes walking like servants on the eretz. 8 He who digs a pit may fall into it; and whoever breaks through a wall may be bitten by a snake. 9 Whoever carves out stones may be injured by them. Whoever splits wood may be endangered thereby. 10 If the ax is blunt, and one doesn’t sharpen the edge, then he must use more strength; but skill brings success.11 If the snake bites before it is charmed, then is there no profit for the charmer’s tongue. 12 The words of a wise man’s mouth are gracious; but a fool is swallowed by his own lips. 13 The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness; and the end of his talk is mischievous madness. 14 A fool also multiplies words. Man doesn’t know what will be; and that which will be after him, who can tell him? 15 The labor of fools wearies every one of them; for he doesn’t know how to go to the city. 16 Woe to you, land, when your king is a child, And your princes eat in the morning! 17 Happy are you, land, when your king is the son of nobles, And your princes eat in due season, For strength, and not for drunkenness! 18 By slothfulness the roof sinks in; And through idleness of the hands the house leaks.19 A feast is made for laughter, And wine makes the life glad; And money is the answer for all things. 20 Don’t revile the king, no, not in your thoughts; And don’t revile the rich in your bedchamber: For a bird of the sky may carry your voice, And that which has wings may tell the matter.

11:1 Cast your bread on the waters; For you shall find it after many days. 2 Give a portion to seven, yes, even to eight; For you don’t know what evil will be on the eretz. 3 If the clouds are full of rain, they empty themselves on the eretz; And if a tree falls toward the south, or toward the north, In the place where the tree falls, there shall it be. 4 He who observes the wind won’t sow; And he who regards the clouds won’t reap. 5 As you don’t know what is the way of the wind, Nor how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child; Even so you don’t know the work of God who does all. 6 In the morning sow your seed, And in the evening don’t withhold your hand; For you don’t know which will prosper, whether this or that, Or whether they both will be equally good. 7 Truly the light is sweet, And a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to see the sun. 8 Yes, if a man lives many years, let him rejoice in them all; But let him remember the days of darkness, for they shall be many. All that comes is vanity. 9 Rejoice, young man, in your youth, And let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth, And walk in the ways of your heart, And in the sight of your eyes; But know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment. 10 Therefore remove sorrow from your heart, And put away evil from your flesh; For youth and the dawn of life are vanity.

12:1 Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the evil days come, and the years draw near, When you will say, “I have no pleasure in them;”2 Before the sun, the light, the moon, and the stars are darkened, And the clouds return after the rain; 3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, And the strong men shall bow themselves, And the grinders cease because they are few, And those who look out of the windows are darkened, 4 And the doors shall be shut in the street; When the sound of the grinding is low, And one shall rise up at the voice of a bird, And all the daughters of music shall be brought low; 5 Yes, they shall be afraid of heights, And terrors will be in the way; And the almond tree shall blossom, And the khagav shall be a burden, And desire shall fail; Because man goes to his everlasting home, And the mourners go about the streets: 6 Before the silver cord is severed, Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher is broken at the spring, Or the wheel broken at the cistern, 7 And the dust returns to the eretz as it was, And the spirit returns to God who gave it. 8 Vanity of vanities, says Kohelet; All is vanity! 9 Further, because Kohelet was wise, he still taught the people knowledge. Yes, he pondered, sought out, and set in order many proverbs. 10 The Preacher sought to find out acceptable words, and that which was written blamelessly, words of truth. 11 The words of the wise are like goads; and like nails well fastened are words from the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd. 12 Furthermore, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13 This is the end of the matter. All has been heard. Fear God, and keep his mitzvot; for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God will bring every work into judgment, with every hidden thing, whether it is good, or whether it is evil.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 8:1 – 15

8:1 Moreover, brothers, we make known to you the grace of God which has been given in the assemblies of Macedonia; 

2 how that in much proof of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded to the riches of their liberality. 

3 For according to their power, I testify, yes and beyond their power, they gave of their own accord, 

4 begging us with much entreaty in regard to this grace and the fellowship in the service to the holy ones. 

5 This was not as we had hoped, but first they gave their own selves to the Lord, and to us through the will of God. 

6 Insomuch that we exhorted Titus, that as he made a beginning before, so he would also complete in you this grace. 

7 But as you abound in everything, in faith, utterance, knowledge, all earnestness, and in your love to us, see that you also abound in this grace. 

8 I speak not by way of mitzvah, but as proving through the earnestness of others the sincerity also of your love. 

9 For you know the grace of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that you through his poverty might become rich. 

10 I give a judgment in this: for this is expedient for you, who were the first to start a year ago, not only to do, but also to be willing. 

11 But now complete the doing also, that as there was the readiness to be willing, so there may be the completion also out of your ability. 

12 For if the readiness is there, it is acceptable according to what you have, not according to what you don’t have. 

13 For this is not that others may be eased and you distressed, 

14 but for equality. Your abundance at this present time supplies their lack, that their abundance also may become a supply for your lack; that there may be equality. 

15 As it is written, “He who gathered much had nothing left over, and he who gathered little had no lack.”

PSALMS: 15, 45, 75, 105, 135

PROVERBS: 15

OLD TESTAMENT: ECCLESIASTES 7:1 – 9:18

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 7:7 – 16

PSALMS: 15

1 LORD, who shall dwell in your sanctuary?

Who shall live on your holy hill? 

2 He who walks blamelessly, does what is right,

And speaks truth in his heart; 

3 He who doesn’t slander with his tongue,

Nor does evil to his friend,

Nor casts slurs against his fellow man; 

4 In whose eyes a vile man is despised,

But who honors those who fear the LORD;

He who keeps an oath even when it hurts, and doesn’t change; 

5 He who doesn’t lend out his money for usury,

Nor take a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things shall never be shaken.

PSALMS: 45

1 My heart overflows with a noble theme.

I recite my verses for the king.

My tongue is like the pen of a skillful writer. 

2 You are the most excellent of the sons of men.

Grace has anointed your lips,

Therefore God has blessed you forever. 

3 Gird your sword on your thigh, mighty one,

Your splendor and your majesty. 

4 In your majesty ride on victoriously on behalf of truth, humility, and righteousness. Let your right hand display awesome deeds. 

5 Your arrows are sharp.

The nations fall under you, with arrows in the heart of the king’s enemies. 

6 Your throne, God, is forever and ever.

A scepter of equity is the scepter of your kingdom. 

7 You have loved righteousness, and hated wickedness.

Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil

of gladness above your fellows. 

8 All your garments smell like myrrh, aloes, and cassia.

Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made you glad. 

9 Kings’ daughters are among your honorable women.

At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ofir. 

10 Listen, daughter, consider, and turn your ear.

Forget your own people, and also your father’s house. 

11 So will the king desire your beauty,

Honor him, for he is your lord. 

12 The daughter of Tzor comes with a gift.

The rich among the people entreat your favor. 

13 The princess inside is all glorious.

Her clothing is interwoven with gold. 

14 She shall be led to the king in embroidered work.

The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to you. 

15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be led.

They shall enter into the king’s palace. 

16 Your sons will take the place of your fathers.

You shall make them princes in all the eretz. 

17 I will make your name to be remembered in all generations.

Therefore the peoples shall give you thanks forever and ever.

PSALMS: 75

1 We give thanks to you, God,

We give thanks, for your Name is near.

Men tell about your wondrous works. 

2 When I choose the appointed time,

I will judge blamelessly. 

3 The eretz and all its inhabitants quake.

I firmly hold its pillars. Selah. 

4 I said to the arrogant,

“Don’t boast;”

To the wicked,

“Don’t lift up the horn. 

5 Don’t lift up your horn on high.

Don’t speak with a stiff neck.” 

6 For neither from the east, nor from the west,

Nor yet from the south, comes exaltation. 

7 But God is the judge.

He puts down one, and lifts up another. 

8 For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup,

Full of foaming wine mixed with spices.

He pours it out.

Indeed the wicked of the eretz drink and drink it to its very dregs. 

9 But I will declare this forever:

I will sing praises to the God of Ya`akov. 

10 I will cut off all the horns of the wicked,

But the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.

PSALMS: 105

1 Give thanks to the LORD!

Call on his name! Make his doings known among the peoples. 

2 Sing to him, sing praises to him!

Tell of all his marvelous works. 

3 Glory in his holy name.

Let the heart of them rejoice who seek the LORD. 

4 Seek the LORD and his strength.

Seek his face forever more. 

5 Remember his marvelous works that he has done;

His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth, 

6 You seed of Avraham, his servant,

You children of Ya`akov, his chosen ones. 

7 He is the LORD, our God.

His judgments are in all the eretz. 

8 He has remembered his covenant forever,

The word which he commanded to a thousand generations,

9 The covenant which he made with Avraham,

His oath to Yitzchak,

10 And confirmed the same to Ya`akov for a statute;

To Yisra’el for an everlasting covenant, 

11 Saying, “To you I will give the land of Kana`an,

The lot of your inheritance;” 

12 When they were but a few men in number,

Yes, very few, and sojourners in it. 

13 They went about from nation to nation,

From one kingdom to another people.

14 He allowed no one to do them wrong.

Yes, he reproved kings for their sakes, 

15 “Don’t touch my anointed ones.

Do my prophets no harm.” 

16 He called for a famine on the land.

He destroyed the food supplies. 

17 He sent a man before them.

Yosef was sold for a slave.

18 They bruised his feet with shackles.

His neck was locked in irons, 

19 Until the time that his word happened,

And the LORD’s word proved him true. 

20 The king sent and freed him;

Even the ruler of peoples, and let him go free. 

21 He made him lord of his house,

And ruler of all of his possessions; 

22 To discipline his princes at his pleasure,

And to teach his Zakenim wisdom. 

23 Yisra’el also came into Mitzrayim.

Ya`akov sojourned in the land of Ham. 

24 He increased his people greatly,

And made them stronger than their adversaries. 

25 He turned their heart to hate his people,

To conspire against his servants. 

26 He sent Moshe, his servant,

And Aharon, whom he had chosen. 

27 They performed miracles among them,

And wonders in the land of Ham. 

28 He sent darkness, and made it dark.

They didn’t rebel against his words. 

29He turned their waters into blood,

And killed their fish. 

30 Their land swarmed with frogs,

Even in the chambers of their kings. 

31 He spoke, and swarms of flies came, ‘

And lice in all their borders. 

32 He gave them hail for rain,

With lightning in their land. 

33 He struck their vines and also their fig trees,

And shattered the trees of their country. 

34 He spoke, and the locusts came,

And the grasshoppers, without number, 

35 Ate up every plant in their land;

Ate up the fruit of their ground. 

36 He struck also all the firstborn in their land,

The chief of all their strength. 

37 He brought them forth with silver and gold.

There was not one feeble person among his tribes. 

38Mitzrayim was glad when they departed,

For the fear of them had fallen on them. 

39 He spread a cloud for a covering,

Fire to give light in the night. 

40 They asked, and he brought quails,

And satisfied them with the bread of the sky. 

41 He opened the rock, and waters gushed out.

They ran as a river in the dry places. 

42 For he remembered his holy word,

And Avraham, his servant. 

43 He brought forth his people with joy,

His chosen with singing. 

44 He gave them the lands of the nations.

They took the labor of the peoples in possession, 

45 That they might keep his statutes,

And observe his laws.

Praise the LORD!

PSALMS: 135

1 Praise the LORD!

Praise the name of the LORD!

Praise him, you servants of the LORD, 

2 You who stand in the house of the LORD,

In the courts of our God’s house. 

3 Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good.

Sing praises to his name, for that is pleasant. 

4 For the LORD has chosen Ya`akov for himself;

Yisra’el for his own possession. 

5 For I know that the LORD is great,

That our Lord is above all gods. 

6 Whatever the LORD pleased, that he has done,

In heaven and in eretz, in the seas and in all deeps; 

7 Who causes the clouds to rise from the ends of the eretz;

Who makes lightnings with the rain;

Who brings forth the wind out of his treasuries; 

8 Who struck the firstborn of Mitzrayim,

Both of man and animal; 

9 Who sent signs and wonders into the midst of you,

Mitzrayim,

On Par`oh, and on all his servants; 

10 Who struck many nations,

And killed mighty kings, 

11 Sichon king of the Amori, `Og king of Bashan,

All the kingdoms of Kana`an, 

12 And gave their land for a heritage,

A heritage to Yisra’el, his people. 

13 Your name, LORD, endures forever;

Your renown, LORD, throughout all generations. 

14 For the LORD will judge his people,

And have compassion on his servants.

15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,

The work of men’s hands. 

16 They have mouths, but they can’t speak;

They have eyes, but they can’t see; 

17  They have ears, but they can’t hear;

Neither is there any breath in their mouths. 

18 Those who make them will be like them;

Yes, everyone who trusts in them. 

19 House of Yisra’el, praise the LORD!

House of Aharon, praise the LORD! 

20House of Levi, praise the LORD!

You who fear the LORD, praise the LORD! 

21 Blessed be the LORD from Tziyon,

Who dwells at Yerushalayim. Praise the LORD!

PROVERBS: 15

1 A gentle answer turns away wrath,

But a harsh word stirs up anger. 

2 The tongue of the wise commends knowledge,

But the mouth of fools gush out folly. 

3 The LORD’s eyes are everywhere,

Keeping watch on the evil and the good. 

4 A gentle tongue is a tree of life,

But deceit in it crushes the spirit. 

5 A fool despises his father’s correction,

But he who heeds reproof shows prudence. 

6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure,

But the income of the wicked brings trouble. 

7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge;

Not so with the heart of fools. 

8 The sacrifice made by the wicked is an abomination to the LORD,

But the prayer of the upright is his delight.

9 The way of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD,

But he loves him who follows after righteousness. 

10 There is stern discipline for one who forsakes the way:

Whoever hates reproof shall die. 

11 She’ol and Avaddon are before the LORD —

How much more then the hearts of the children of men! 

12 A scoffer doesn’t love to be reproved;

He will not go to the wise. 

13 A glad heart makes a cheerful face;

But an aching heart breaks the spirit. 

14 The heart of one who has understanding seeks knowledge,

But the mouths of fools feed on folly. 

15 All the days of the afflicted are wretched,

But one who has a cheerful heart enjoys a continual feast. 

16 Better is little, with the fear of the LORD,

Than great treasure with trouble. 

17 Better is a dinner of herbs, where love is,

Than a fattened calf with hatred. 

18 A wrathful man stirs up contention,

But one who is slow to anger appeases strife. 

19 The way of the sluggard is like a thorn patch,

But the path of the upright is a highway. 

20 A wise son makes a father glad,

But a foolish man despises his mother. 

21 Folly is joy to one who is void of wisdom,

But a man of understanding keeps his way straight. 

22 Where there is no counsel, plans fail;

But in a multitude of counselors they are established. 

23 Joy comes to a man with the reply of his mouth.

How good is a word at the right time!

24 The path of life leads upward for the wise,

To keep him from going downward to She’ol. 

25 The LORD will uproot the house of the proud,

But he will keep the widow’s borders intact. 

26 The LORD detests the thoughts of the wicked,

But the thoughts of the pure are pleasing. 

27 He who is greedy for gain troubles his own house,

But he who hates bribes will live. 

28 The heart of the righteous weighs answers,

But the mouth of the wicked gushes out evil. 

29 The LORD is far from the wicked,

But he hears the prayer of the righteous. 

30 The light of the eyes rejoices the heart.

Good news gives health to the bones. 

31 The ear that listens to the reproof lives,

And will be at home among the wise. 

32 He who refuses correction despises his own soul,

But he who listens to reproof gets understanding. 

33 The fear of the LORD teaches wisdom.

Before honor is humility.

OLD TESTAMENT: ECCLESIASTES 7:1 – 9:18

7:1 A good name is better than fine perfume; and the day of death better than the day of one’s birth. 2 It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men, and the living should take this to heart. 3 Sorrow is better than laughter; for by the sadness of the face the heart is made good. 4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth. 5 It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools. 6 For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so is the laughter of the fool. This also is vanity. 7 Surely extortion makes the wise man foolish; and a bribe destroys the understanding. 8 Better is the end of a thing than its beginning. The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. 9 Don’t be hasty in your spirit to be angry, for anger rests in the bosom of fools. 10 Don’t say, “Why were the former days better than these?” For you do not ask wisely about this. 11 Wisdom is as good as an inheritance. Yes, it is more excellent for those who see the sun. 12 For wisdom is a defense, even as money is a defense; but the excellency of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it. 13 Consider the work of God, for who can make that straight, which he has made crooked? 14 In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider; yes, God has made the one side by side with the other, to the end that man should not find out anything after him. 15 All this have I seen in my days of vanity: there is a righteous man who perishes in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man who lives long in his evil-doing. 16 Don’t be overly righteous, neither make yourself overly wise. Why should you destroy yourself? 17 Don’t be too wicked, neither be foolish. Why should you die before your time? 18 It is good that you should take hold of this. Yes, also from that don’t withdraw your hand; for he who fears God will come forth from them all. 19 Wisdom is a strength to the wise man more than ten rulers who are in a city. 20 Surely there is not a righteous man on eretz, who does good and doesn’t sin. 21 Also don’t take heed to all words that are spoken, lest you hear your servant curse you; 22 for often your own heart knows that you yourself have likewise cursed others. 23 All this have I proved in wisdom. I said, “I will be wise;” but it was far from me. 24 That which is, is far off and exceedingly deep. Who can find it out? 25 I turned around, and my heart sought to know and to search out, and to seek wisdom and the scheme of things, and to know that wickedness is stupidity, and that foolishness is madness. 26 I find more bitter than death the woman whose heart is snares and traps, whose hands are chains. Whoever pleases God shall escape from her; but the sinner will be ensnared by her. 27 Behold, this have I found, says Kohelet, one to another, to find out the scheme; 28 which my soul still seeks; but I have not found: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found. 29 Behold, this only have I found: that God made man upright; but they search for many schemes.

8:1 Who is like the wise man? And who knows the interpretation of a thing? A man’s wisdom makes his face shine, and the hardness of his face is changed. 2 I say, “Keep the king’s command!” because of the oath to God. 3 Don’t be hasty to go out of his presence. Don’t persist in an evil thing, for he does whatever pleases him, 4 for the king’s word is supreme. Who can say to him, “What are you doing?” 5 Whoever keeps the mitzvah shall not come to harm, and his wise heart will know the time and procedure. 6 For there is a time and procedure for every purpose, although the misery of man is heavy on him. 7 For he doesn’t know that which will be; for who can tell him how it will be? 8 There is no man who has power over the spirit to contain the spirit; neither does he have power over the day of death. There is no discharge in war; neither shall wickedness deliver those who practices it. 9 All this have I seen, and applied my mind to every work that is done under the sun. There is a time in which one man has power over another to his hurt. 10 So I saw the wicked buried. Indeed they came also from holiness. They went and were forgotten in the city where they did this. This also is vanity. 11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. 12 Though a sinner commits crimes a hundred times, and lives long, yet surely I know that it will be better with those who fear God, who are reverent before him. 13 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he lengthen days like a shadow; because he doesn’t fear God. 14 There is a vanity which is done on the eretz, that there are righteous men to whom it happens according to the work of the wicked. Again, there are wicked men to whom it happens according to the work of the righteous. I said that this also is vanity. 15 Then I commended mirth, because a man has no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be joyful: for that will accompany him in his labor all the days of his life which God has given him under the sun. 16 When I applied my heart to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done on the eretz (for also there is that neither day nor night sees sleep with his eyes), 17 then I saw all the work of God, that man can’t find out the work that is done under the sun, because however much a man labors to seek it out, yet he won’t find it. Yes, moreover, though a wise man thinks he can comprehend it, yet he won’t be able to find it.

9:1 For all this I laid to my heart, even to explore all this: that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God; whether it is love or hatred, man doesn’t know it; all is before them. 2 All things come alike to all. There is one event to the righteous and to the wicked; to the good, to the clean, to the unclean, to him who sacrifices, and to him who doesn’t sacrifice. As is the good, so is the sinner; he who takes an oath, as he who fears an oath. 3 This is an evil in all that is done under the sun, that there is one event to all: yes also, the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead. 4 For to him who is joined with all the living there is hope; for a living dog is better than a dead lion. 5 For the living know that they will die, but the dead don’t know anything, neither do they have any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. 6 Also their love, their hatred, and their envy has perished long ago; neither have they any more a portion forever in anything that is done under the sun. 7 Go your way — eat your bread with joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart; for God has already accepted your works. 8 Let your garments be always white, and don’t let your head lack oil. 9 Live joyfully with the wife whom you love all the days of your life of vanity, which he has given you under the sun, all your days of vanity: for that is your portion in life, and in your labor in which you labor under the sun. 10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in She’ol, where you are going. 11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all. 12 For man also doesn’t know his time. As the fish that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare, even so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falls suddenly on them. 13 I have also seen wisdom under the sun in this way, and it seemed great to me. 14 There was a little city, and few men within it; and a great king came against it, besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it. 15 Now a poor wise man was found in it, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man. 16 Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength. Nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.17 The words of the wise heard in quiet are better than the cry of him who rules among fools. 18Wisdom is better than weapons of war; but one sinner destroys much good.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 7:7 – 16

7:7 and not by his coming only, but also by the comfort with which he was comforted in you, while he told us your longing, your mourning, and your zeal for me; so that I rejoiced still more. 

8 For though I made you sorry with my letter, I do not regret it, though I did regret it. For I see that my letter made you sorry, though just for a while. 

9 I now rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that you were made sorry to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly way, that you might suffer loss by us in nothing. 

10 For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation, which brings no regret. But the sorrow of the world works death. 

11 For behold, this same thing, that you were made sorry in a godly way, what earnest care it worked in you. Yes, what defense, indignation, fear, longing, zeal, and vengeance! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be pure in the matter. 

12 So although I wrote to you, I wrote not for his cause that did the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered the wrong, but that your earnest care for us might be revealed in you in the sight of God. 

13 Therefore we have been comforted. In our comfort we rejoiced the more exceedingly for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all. 

14 For if in anything I have boasted to him on your behalf, I was not put to shame. But as we spoke all things to you in truth, so our glorying also which I made before Titus was found to be truth. 

15 His affection is more abundantly toward you, while he remembers all of your obedience, how with fear and trembling you received him. 

16 I rejoice that in everything I am of good courage concerning you.

PSALMS: 14, 44, 74, 104, 144

PROVERBS: 14

OLD TESTAMENT: ECCLESIASTES 4:1 – 6:12

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 6:14 – 7:7

PSALMS: 14

1 The fool has said in his heart,

“There is no God.

” They are corrupt, they have done abominable works.

There is none who does good. 

2 The LORD looked down from heaven on the children of men,

To see if there were any who did understand,

Who did seek after God. 

3 They have all gone aside;

they have together become corrupt.

There is none who does good, no, not one. 

4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge,

Who eat up my people as they eat bread,

And don’t call on the LORD? 

5 There were they in great fear,

For God is in the generation of the righteous. 

6 You put to shame the counsel of the poor,

Because the LORD is his refuge. 

7 Oh that the yeshu`ah of Yisra’el would come out of Tziyon!

When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people,

Then Ya`akov shall rejoice, and Yisra’el shall be glad.

PSALMS: 44

1 We have heard with our ears,

God; Our fathers have told us,

What work you did in their days,

In the days of old. 

2 You drove out the nations with your hand,

But you planted them.

You afflicted the peoples,

But you spread them abroad. 

3 For they didn’t get the land in possession by their own sword,

Neither did their own arm save them;

But your right hand, and your arm, and the light of your face,

Because you were favorable to them. 

4 You are my King, God.

Command victories for Ya`akov! 

5 Through you, will we push down our adversaries.

Through your name, will we tread them under who rise up against us. 

6 For I will not trust in my bow,

Neither shall my sword save me. 

7 But you have saved us from our adversaries,

And have put them to shame who hate us. 

8 In God have we made our boast all day long,

We will give thanks to your name forever. Selah.

9 But now you rejected us, and brought us to dishonor,

And don’t go out with our armies. 

10 You make us turn back from the adversary.

Those who hate us take spoil for themselves. 

11 You have made us like sheep for food,

And have scattered us among the nations. 

12You sell your people for nothing,

And have gained nothing from their sale. 

13 You make us a reproach to our neighbors,

A scoffing and a derision to those who are round about us. 

14 You make us a byword among the nations,

A shaking of the head among the peoples. 

15 All day long is my dishonor before me,

And shame covers my face,

16 At the taunt of one who reproaches and reviles,

Because of the enemy and the avenger. 

17 All this has come on us,

Yet have we not forgotten you,

Neither have we been false to your covenant. 

18 Our heart has not turned back,

Neither have our steps declined from your way, 

19 That you have crushed us in the haunt of jackals,

And covered us with the shadow of death. 

20 If we have forgotten the name of our God,

Or spread forth our hands to a strange god; 

21 Won’t God search this out?

For he knows the secrets of the heart.

22 Yes, for your sake are we killed all day long.

We are regarded as sheep for the slaughter. 

23 Wake up!

Why do you sleep, Lord? Arise!

Don’t reject us forever. 

24 Why do you hide your face,

And forget our affliction and our oppression? 

25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust.

Our body cleaves to the eretz. 

26 Rise up to help us.

Redeem us for your loving kindness’ sake.

PSALMS: 74

1 God, why have you rejected us forever?

Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture? 

2 Remember your congregation, which you purchased of old,

Which you have redeemed to be the tribe of your inheritance;

Mount Tziyon, in which you have lived. 

3 Lift up your feet to the perpetual ruins,

All the evil that the enemy has done in the sanctuary. 

4 Your adversaries have roared in the midst of your assembly.

They have set up their standards as signs. 

5 They behaved like men wielding axes,

Cutting through a thicket of trees. 

6 Now all its carved work

They break down with hatchet and hammers. 

7 They have burned your sanctuary to the ground.

They have profaned the dwelling-place of your Name. 

8 They said in their heart,

“We will crush them completely.

” They have burned up all the places in the land where God was worshiped. 

9 We see no miraculous signs.

There is no longer any prophet,

Neither is there among us anyone who knows how long. 

10 How long, God, shall the adversary reproach?

Shall the enemy blaspheme your name forever? 

11 Why do you draw back your hand, even your right hand?

Take it out of your pocket and consume them! 

12 Yet God is my King of old,

Working salvation in the midst of the eretz. 

13 You divided the sea by your strength.

You broke the heads of the sea monsters in the waters. 

14 You broke the heads of Livyatan in pieces.

You gave him as food to people and desert creatures. 

15 You opened up spring and stream.

You dried up mighty rivers. 

16 The day is yours, the night is also yours.

You have prepared the light and the sun. 

17 You have set all the boundaries of the eretz.

You have made summer and winter. 

18 Remember this, that the enemy has mocked you, LORD.

Foolish people have blasphemed your name. 

19 Don’t deliver the soul of your dove to wild beasts.

Don’t forget the life of your poor forever. 

20 Honor your covenant,

For haunts of violence fill the dark places of the eretz. 

21 Don’t let the oppressed return ashamed.

Let the poor and needy praise your name.

22 Arise, God! Plead your own cause.

Remember how the foolish man mocks you all day. 

23 Don’t forget the voice of your adversaries.

The tumult of those who rise up against you ascends continually.

PSALMS: 104

1 Bless the LORD, my soul.

The LORD, my God, you are very great.

You are clothed with honor and majesty. 

2 He covers himself with light as with a garment.

He stretches out the heavens like a curtain. 

3 He lays the beams of his chambers in the waters.

He makes the clouds his chariot.

He walks on the wings of the wind. 

4He makes his messengers winds;

His servants flames of fire. 

5 He laid the foundations of the eretz,

That it should not be moved forever.

6 You covered it with the deep as with a cloak.

The waters stood above the mountains. 

7 At your rebuke they fled.

At the voice of your thunder they hurried away. 

8 The mountains rose,

The valleys sank down,

To the place which you had assigned to them. 

9 You have set a boundary that they may not pass over;

That they don’t turn again to cover the eretz. 

10 He sends forth springs into the valleys.

They run among the mountains. 

11 They give drink to every animal of the field.

The wild donkeys quench their thirst. 

12 The birds of the sky nest by them.

They sing among the branches. 

13 He waters the mountains from his chambers.

The eretz is filled with the fruit of your works. 

14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle,

And plants for man to cultivate,

That he may bring forth food out of the eretz: 

15Wine that makes glad the heart of man,

Oil to make his face to shine,

And bread that strengthens man’s heart. 

16 The LORD’s trees are well watered,

The cedars of Levanon, which he has planted; 

17 Where the birds make their nests.

The stork makes its home in the fir trees. 

18 The high mountains are for the wild goats.

The rocks are a refuge for the rock badgers. 

19 He appointed the moon for seasons.

The sun knows when to set. 

20 You make darkness, and it is night,

In which all the animals of the forest prowl. 

21 The young lions roar after their prey,

And seek their food from God. 

22 The sun rises, and they steal away,

And lay down in their dens. 

23 Man goes forth to his work,

To his labor until the evening. 

24 The LORD, how many are your works!

In wisdom have you made them all.

The eretz is full of your riches. 

25 There is the sea, great and wide,

In which are innumerable living things,

Both small and great animals. 

26 There the ships go,

And livyatan, whom you formed to play there. 

27 These all wait for you,

That you may give them their food in due season. 

28 You give to them; they gather.

You open your hand; they are satisfied with good. 

29 You hide your face: they are troubled;

You take away their breath: they die, and return to the dust. 

30 You send forth your Spirit: they are created.

You renew the face of the ground. 

31 Let the glory of the LORD endure forever.

Let the LORD rejoice in his works. 

32 He looks at the eretz, and it trembles.

He touches the mountains, and they smoke. 

33 I will sing to the LORD as long as I live.

I will sing praise to my God while I have any being.

34 Let your meditation be sweet to him.

I will rejoice in the LORD.

35 Let sinners be consumed out of the eretz.

Let the wicked be no more.

Bless the LORD, my soul.

Praise the LORD!

PSALMS: 134

1 Look! Praise the LORD, all you servants of the LORD,

Who stand by night in the LORD’s house! 

2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary.

Praise the LORD! 

3 May the LORD bless you from Tziyon;

Even he who made heaven and eretz.

PROVERBS: 14

1 Every wise woman builds her house,

But the foolish one tears it down with her own hands. 

2 He who walks in his uprightness fears the LORD,

But he who is perverse in his ways despises him. 

3 The fool’s talk brings a rod to his back,

But the lips of the wise protect them. 

4 Where no oxen are, the crib is clean,

But much increase is by the strength of the ox. 

5 A truthful witness will not lie,

But a false witness pours out lies. 

6 A scoffer seeks wisdom, and doesn’t find it,

But knowledge comes easily to a discerning person. 

7 Stay away from a foolish man,

For you won’t find knowledge on his lips. 

8 The wisdom of the prudent is to think about his way,

But the folly of fools is deceit. 

9 Fools mock at making atonement for sins,

But among the upright there is good will. 

10 The heart knows its own bitterness and joy;

He will not share these with a stranger. 

11 The house of the wicked will be overthrown,

But the tent of the upright will flourish. 

12There is a way which seems right to a man,

But in the end it leads to death. 

13 Even in laughter the heart may be sorrowful,

And mirth may end in heaviness. 

14 The unfaithful will be repaid for his own ways;

Likewise a good man will be rewarded for his ways. 

15 The simple believes everything,

But the prudent man carefully considers his ways. 

16 A wise man fears, and shuns evil,

But the fool is hotheaded and reckless. 

17 He who is quick to become angry will commit folly,

And a crafty man is hated. 

18 The simple inherit folly,

But the prudent are crowned with knowledge. 

19 The evil bow down before the good,

And the wicked, at the gates of the righteous. 

20 The poor person is shunned even by his own neighbor,

But the rich person has many friends. 

21 He who despises his neighbor sins,

But blessed is he who has pity on the poor. 

22 Don’t they go astray who plot evil?

But love and faithfulness belong to those who plan good. 

23 In all hard work there is profit,

But the talk of the lips leads only to poverty. 

24 The crown of the wise is their riches,

But the folly of fools crowns them with folly. 

25 A truthful witness saves souls,

But a false witness is deceitful. 

26 In the fear of the LORD is a secure fortress,

And he will be a refuge for his children. 

27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life,

Turning people from the snares of death. 

28 In the multitude of people is the king’s glory,

But in the lack of people is the destruction of the prince. 

29 He who is slow to anger has great understanding,

But he who has a quick temper displays folly. 

30 The life of the body is a heart at shalom,

But envy rots the bones. 

31 He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for his Maker,

But he who is kind to the needy honors him. 

32 The wicked is brought down in his calamity,

But in death, the righteous has a refuge. 

33 Wisdom rests in the heart of one who has understanding,

And is even made known in the inward part of fools.

34 Righteousness exalts a nation,

But sin is a disgrace to any people. 

35 The king’s favor is toward a servant who deals wisely,

But his wrath is toward one who causes shame.

OLD TESTAMENT: ECCLESIASTES 4:1 – 6:16

4:1 Then I returned and saw all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and, behold, the tears of those who were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter. 2 Therefore I praised the dead who have been long dead more than the living who are yet alive. 3 Yes, better than them both is him who has not yet been, who has not seen the evil work that is done under the sun. 4 Then I saw all the labor and achievement that is the envy of a man’s neighbor. This also is vanity and a striving after wind. 5 The fool folds his hands together and ruins himself. 6 Better is a handful, with quietness, than two handfuls with labor and chasing after wind. 7 Then I returned and saw vanity under the sun. 8 There is one who is alone, and he has neither son nor brother. There is no end to all of his labor, neither are his eyes satisfied with wealth. For whom then, do I labor, and deprive my soul of enjoyment? This also is vanity, yes, it is a miserable business. 9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him who is alone when he falls, and doesn’t have another to lift him up. 11 Again, if two lie together, then they have warmth; but how can one keep warm alone? 12 If a man prevails against one who is alone, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. 13 Better is a poor and wise youth than an old and foolish king who doesn’t know how to receive admonition any more. 14 For out of prison he came forth to be king; yes, even in his kingdom he was born poor. 15 I saw all the living who walk under the sun, that they were with the youth, the other, who succeeded him. 16 There was no end of all the people, even of all them over whom he was — yet those who come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and a chasing after wind.

5:1 Guard your steps when you go to God’s house; for to draw near to listen is better than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they don’t know that they do evil. 2 Don’t be rash with your mouth, and don’t let your heart be hasty to utter anything before God; for God is in heaven, and you on eretz. Therefore let your words be few. 3 For as a dream comes with a multitude of cares, so a fool’s speech with a multitude of words. 4 When you vow a vow to God, don’t defer to pay it; for he has no pleasure in fools. Pay that which you vow. 5 It is better that you should not vow, than that you should vow and not pay. 6 Don’t allow your mouth to lead you into sin. Don’t protest before the messenger that this was a mistake. Why should God be angry at your voice, and destroy the work of your hands? 7 For in the multitude of dreams there are vanities, as well as in many words: but you must fear God. 8 If you see the oppression of the poor, and the violent taking away of justice and righteousness in a district, don’t marvel at the matter: for one official is eyed by a higher one; and there are officials over them. 9 Moreover the profit of the eretz is for all. The king profits from the field. 10 He who loves silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he who loves abundance, with increase: this also is vanity. 11 When goods increase, those who eat them are increased; and what advantage is there to its owner, except to feast on them with his eyes? 12 The sleep of a laboring man is sweet, whether he eats little or much; but the abundance of the rich will not allow him to sleep. 13 There is a grievous evil which I have seen under the sun: wealth kept by its owner to his harm. 14 Those riches perish by misfortune, and if he has fathered a son, there is nothing in his hand.15 As he came forth from his mother’s womb, naked shall he go again as he came, and shall take nothing for his labor, which he may carry away in his hand. 16 This also is a grievous evil, that in all points as he came, so shall he go. And what profit does he have who labors for the wind? 17 All his days he also eats in darkness, he is frustrated, and has sickness and wrath. 18 Behold, that which I have seen to be good and proper is for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy good in all his labor, in which he labors under the sun, all the days of his life which God has given him; for this is his portion. 19 Every man also to whom God has given riches and wealth, and has given him power to eat of it, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labor — this is the gift of God. 20 For he shall not often reflect on the days of his life; because God occupies him with the joy of his heart.

6:1 There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is heavy on men: 2 a man to whom God gives riches, wealth, and honor, so that he lacks nothing for his soul of all that he desires, yet God gives him no power to eat of it, but an alien eats it. This is vanity, and it is an evil disease. 3 If a man fathers a hundred children, and lives many years, so that the days of his years are many, but his soul is not filled with good, and moreover he has no burial; I say, that an untimely birth is better than he: 4 for it comes in vanity, and departs in darkness, and its name is covered with darkness. 5 Moreover it has not seen the sun nor known it. This has rest rather than the other. 6 Yes, though he live a thousand years twice told, and yet fails to enjoy good, don’t all go to one place? 7 All the labor of man is for his mouth, and yet the appetite is not filled. 8 For what advantage has the wise more than the fool? What has the poor man, that knows how to walk before the living? 9 Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the desire. This also is vanity and a chasing after wind. 10 Whatever has been, its name was given long ago; and it is known what man is; neither can he contend with him who is mightier than he. 11 For there are many words that create vanity. What does that profit man? 12 For who knows what is good for man in life, all the days of his vain life which he spends like a shadow? For who can tell a man what will be after him under the sun?

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 6:14 – 7:7

6:14 Don’t be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? Or what communion has light with darkness? 15 What agreement has Messiah with Beliya`al? Or what portion has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement has a temple of God with idols? For you are a temple of the living God. Even as God said, “I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they will be my people.” 17  Therefore, “‘Come out from among them, And be separate,’ says the Lord, ‘Touch no unclean thing. I will receive you. 18 I will be to you a Father. You will be to me sons and daughters,’ says the Lord Almighty.”

7:1 Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Open your hearts to us. We wronged no one. We corrupted no one. We took advantage of no one. 3 I say this not to condemn you, for I have said before, that you are in our hearts to die together and live together. 4 Great is my boldness of speech toward you. Great is my boasting on your behalf. I am filled with comfort. I overflow with joy in all our affliction. 5 For even when we had come into Macedonia, our flesh had no relief, but we were afflicted on every side. Fightings were outside. Fear was inside. 6 Nevertheless, he who comforts the lowly, God, comforted us by the coming of Titus; 7 and not by his coming only, but also by the comfort with which he was comforted in you, while he told us your longing, your mourning, and your zeal for me; so that I rejoiced still more. 

8 For though I made you sorry with my letter, I do not regret it, though I did regret it. For I see that my letter made you sorry, though just for a while. 9 I now rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that you were made sorry to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly way, that you might suffer loss by us in nothing. 10 For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation, which brings no regret. But the sorrow of the world works death. 11 For behold, this same thing, that you were made sorry in a godly way, what earnest care it worked in you. Yes, what defense, indignation, fear, longing, zeal, and vengeance! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be pure in the matter. 12 So although I wrote to you, I wrote not for his cause that did the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered the wrong, but that your earnest care for us might be revealed in you in the sight of God. 13 Therefore we have been comforted. In our comfort we rejoiced the more exceedingly for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all. 14 For if in anything I have boasted to him on your behalf, I was not put to shame. But as we spoke all things to you in truth, so our glorying also which I made before Titus was found to be truth. 15 His affection is more abundantly toward you, while he remembers all of your obedience, how with fear and trembling you received him. 16 I rejoice that in everything I am of good courage concerning you.

JUNE 13

PSALMS: 13, 43, 73, 103, 133

PROVERBS: 13

OLD TESTAMENT: ECCLESIASTES 1:1 – 3:22

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 6:1 – 13

PSALMS: 13

1 How long, LORD?

Will you forget me forever?

How long will you hide your face from me? 

2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul,

Having sorrow in my heart every day?

How long shall my enemy triumph over me? 

3 Behold, and answer me, LORD, my God.

Give light to my eyes, lest I sleep in death; 

4 Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him;

” Lest my adversaries rejoice when I fall. 

5 But I trust in your loving kindness.

My heart rejoices in your yeshu`ah.

6 I will sing to the LORD,

Because he has been good to me.

PSALMS: 43

1 Vindicate me, God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation.

Oh, deliver me from deceitful and wicked men. 

2 For you are the God of my strength.

Why have you rejected me?

Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? 

3 Oh, send out your light and your truth.

Let them lead me. Let them bring me to your holy hill,

To your tents. 

4 Then I will go to the altar of God,

To God, my exceeding joy.

I will praise you on the harp, God, my God. 

5 Why are you in despair, my soul?

Why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God!

For I shall still praise him,

The saving help of my face, and my God.

PSALMS: 73

1 Surely God is good to Yisra’el,

To those who are pure in heart.

2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone.

My steps had nearly slipped. 

3 For I was envious of the arrogant,

When I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 

4 For there are no struggles in their death,

But their strength is firm. 

5 They are free from burdens of men,

Neither are they plagued like other men. 

6 Therefore pride is like a chain around their neck.

Violence covers them like a garment. 

7 Their eyes bulge with fat.

Their minds pass the limits of conceit. 

8 They scoff and speak with malice.

In arrogance, they threaten oppression. 

9 They have set their mouth in the heavens.

Their tongue walks through the eretz. 

10 Therefore their people return to them,

And they drink up waters of abundance. 

11 They say, “How does God know?

Is there knowledge in Ha`Elyon?” 

12 Behold, these are the wicked.

Being always at ease, they increase in riches.

13 Surely in vain I have cleansed my heart,

And washed my hands in innocence, 

14 For all day long have I been plagued,

And punished every morning. 

15 If I had said, “I will speak thus;”

Behold, I would have betrayed the generation of your children. 

16 When I tried to understand this,

It was too painful for me; 

17  Until I entered God’s sanctuary,

And considered their latter end. 

18 Surely you set them in slippery places.

You throw them down to destruction. 

19 How they are suddenly destroyed!

They are completely swept away with terrors. 

20 As a dream when one wakes up,

So, Lord, when you awake, you will despise their fantasies. 

21 For my soul was grieved.

I was embittered in my heart. 

22 I was so senseless and ignorant.

I was a brute beast before you. 

23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you.

You have held my right hand. 

24 You will guide me with your counsel,

And afterward receive me to glory. 

25 Who do I have in heaven?

There is no one on eretz who I desire besides you. 

26 My flesh and my heart fails,

But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. 

27 For, behold, those who are far from you shall perish.

You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to you. 

28 But it is good for me to come close to God.

I have made the Lord GOD my refuge,

That I may tell of all your works.

PSALMS: 103

1 Praise the LORD, my soul!

All that is within me, praise his holy name! 

2 Praise the LORD, my soul,

And don’t forget all his benefits;

3 Who forgives all your sins;

Who heals all your diseases; 

4 Who redeems your life from destruction;

Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies; 

5 Who satisfies your desire with good things,

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. 

6 The LORD executes righteous acts,

And justice for all who are oppressed.

7 He made known his ways to Moshe,

His deeds to the children of Yisra’el. 

8 The LORD is merciful and gracious,

Slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness. 

9 He will not always accuse;

Neither will he stay angry forever. 

10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins,

Nor rewarded us for our iniquities. 

11 For as the heavens are high above the eretz,

So great is his loving kindness toward those who fear him. 

12 As far as the east is from the west,

So far has he removed our transgressions from us. 

13 Like a father has compassion on his children,

So the LORD has compassion on those who fear him. 

14 For he knows how we are made.

He remembers that we are dust. 

15 As for man, his days are like grass.

As a flower of the field, so he flourishes. 

16 For the wind passes over it, and it is gone.

Its place remembers it no more. 

17 But the LORD’s loving kindness is from everlasting

to everlasting with those who fear him,

His righteousness to children’s children; 

18 To those who keep his covenant,

To those who remember to obey his precepts. 

19 The LORD has established his throne in the heavens.

His kingdom rules over all. 

20 Praise the LORD, you angels of his,

Who are mighty in strength, who fulfill his word,

Obeying the voice of his word. 

21 Praise the LORD, all you hosts of his,

You servants of his, who do his pleasure. 

22 Praise the LORD, all you works of his,

In all places of his dominion.

Praise the LORD, my soul.

PSALMS: 133

1 See how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to live together in unity! 

2 It is like the precious oil on the head,

That ran down on the beard,

Even Aharon’s beard;

That came down on the edge of his robes; 

3 Like the dew of Hermon,

That comes down on the hills of Tziyon:

For there the LORD gives the blessing,

Even life forevermore.

PROVERBS: 13

1 A wise son listens to his father’s instruction,

But a scoffer doesn’t listen to rebuke. 

2 By the fruit of his lips, a man enjoys good things;

But the unfaithful crave violence. 

3 He who guards his mouth guards his soul.

One who opens wide his lips comes to ruin. 

4 The soul of the sluggard desires, and has nothing,

But the desire of the diligent shall be fully satisfied. 

5 A righteous man hates lies,

But a wicked man brings shame and disgrace. 

6 Righteousness guards the way of integrity,

But wickedness overthrows the sinner. 

7 There are some who pretend to be rich, yet have nothing.

There are some who pretend to be poor, yet have great wealth. 

8 The ransom of a man’s life is his riches,

But the poor hears no threats. 

9 The light of the righteous shines brightly,

But the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out. 

10 By pride comes only quarrels,

But with ones who take advice is wisdom. 

11 Wealth gained dishonestly dwindles away,

But he who gathers by hand makes it grow. 

12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick,

But when longing is fulfilled, it is a tree of life. 

13 Whoever despises instruction will pay for it,

But he who respects a command will be rewarded. 

14 The teaching of the wise is a spring of life,

To turn from the snares of death. 

15 Good understanding wins favor;

But the way of the unfaithful is hard. 

16 Every prudent man acts from knowledge,

But a fool exposes folly. 

17 A wicked messenger falls into trouble,

But a trustworthy envoy gains healing.

18 Poverty and shame come to him who refuses discipline,

But he who heeds correction shall be honored. 

19 Longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul,

But fools detest turning from evil. 

20 One who walks with wise men grows wise,

But a companion of fools suffers harm.

21 Misfortune pursues sinners,

But prosperity rewards the righteous. 

22 A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children,

But the wealth of the sinner is stored for the righteous. 

23 An abundance of food is in poor people’s fields,

But injustice sweeps it away. 

24 One who spares the rod hates his son,

But one who loves him is careful to discipline him. 

25 The righteous one eats to the satisfying of his soul,

But the belly of the wicked goes hungry.

OLD TESTAMENT: ECCLESIASTES 1:1 – 3:22

1:1 The words of Kohelet, the son of David, king in Yerushalayim: 2 “Vanity of vanities,” says Kohelet; “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” 3 What does man gain from all his labor in which he labors under the sun? 4 One generation goes, and another generation comes; but the eretz remains forever. 5 The sun also rises, and the sun goes down, and hurries to its place where it rises. 6 The wind goes toward the south, and turns around to the north. It turns around continually as it goes, and the wind returns again to its courses. 7 All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full. To the place where the rivers flow, there they flow again. 8 All things are full of weariness beyond uttering. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. 9 That which has been is that which shall be; and that which has been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. 10 Is there a thing of which it may be said, “Behold, this is new?” It has been long ago, in the ages which were before us. 11 There is no memory of the former; neither shall there be any memory of the latter that are to come, among those that shall come after. 12 I, Kohelet, was king over Yisra’el in Yerushalayim. 13 I applied my heart to seek and to search out by wisdom concerning all that is done under the sky. It is a heavy burden that God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with. 14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and a chasing after wind. 15 That which is crooked can’t be made straight; and that which is lacking can’t be counted. 16 I said to myself, “Behold, I have obtained for myself great wisdom above all who were before me in Yerushalayim. Yes, my heart has had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.” 17 I applied my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly. I perceived that this also was a chasing after wind. 18 For in much wisdom is much grief; and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.

2:1 I said in my heart, “Come now, I will test you with mirth: therefore enjoy pleasure;” and, behold, this also was vanity. 2 I said of laughter, “It is foolishness;” and of mirth, “What does it accomplish?” 3 I searched in my heart how to cheer my flesh with wine, my heart yet guiding me with wisdom, and how to lay hold of folly, until I might see what it was good for the sons of men that they should do under heaven all the days of their lives. 4 I made myself great works. I built myself houses. I planted myself vineyards. 5 I made myself gardens and parks, and I planted trees in them of all kinds of fruit. 6 I made myself pools of water, to water from it the forest where trees were reared. 7 I bought men-servants and maid-servants, and had servants born in my house. I also had great possessions of herds and flocks, above all who were before me in Yerushalayim; 8 I also gathered silver and gold for myself, and the treasure of kings and of the provinces. I got myself men-singers and women-singers, and the delights of the sons of men — musical instruments, and that of all sorts. 9 So I was great, and increased more than all who were before me in Yerushalayim. My wisdom also remained with me. 10 Whatever my eyes desired, I didn’t keep from them. I didn’t withhold my heart from any joy, for my heart rejoiced because of all my labor, and this was my portion from all my labor. 11 Then I looked at all the works that my hands had worked, and at the labor that I had labored to do; and, behold, all was vanity and a chasing after wind, and there was no profit under the sun. 12 I turned myself to consider wisdom, madness, and folly: for what can the king’s successor do? Just that which has been done long ago. 13 Then I saw that wisdom excels folly, as far as light excels darkness.14 The wise man’s eyes are in his head, and the fool walks in darkness — and yet I perceived that one event happens to them all. 15 Then said I in my heart, “As it happens to the fool, so will it happen even to me; and why was I then more wise?” Then said I in my heart that this also is vanity. 16 For of the wise man, even as of the fool, there is no memory for ever, seeing that in the days to come all will have been long forgotten. Indeed, the wise man must die just like the fool! 17 So I hated life, because the work that is worked under the sun was grievous to me; for all is vanity and a chasing after wind. 18 I hated all my labor in which I labored under the sun, seeing that I must leave it to the man who comes after me. 19 Who knows whether he will be a wise man or a fool? Yet he will have rule over all of my labor in which I have labored, and in which I have shown myself wise under the sun. This also is vanity. 20 Therefore I began to cause my heart to despair concerning all the labor in which I had labored under the sun. 21 For there is a man whose labor is with wisdom, with knowledge, and with skillfulness; yet he shall leave it for his portion to a man who has not labored therein. This also is vanity and a great evil. 22 For what has a man of all his labor, and of the striving of his heart, in which he labors under the sun? 23 For all his days are sorrows, and his travail is grief; yes, even in the night his heart takes no rest. This also is vanity. 24 There is nothing better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and make his soul enjoy good in his labor. This also I saw, that it is from the hand of God. 25 For who can eat, or who can have enjoyment, more than I? 26 For to the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner he gives travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him who pleases God. This also is vanity and a chasing after wind.

3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven: 2 A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3 A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones together; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to seek, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to cast away; 7 A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; 8 A time to love, And a time to hate; A time for war, And a time for shalom. 9 What profit has he who works in that in which he labors? 10 I have seen the burden which God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in their hearts, yet so that man can’t find out the work that God has done from the beginning even to the end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice, and to do good as long as they live. 13 Also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy good in all his labor, is the gift of God. 14I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it; and God has done it, that men should fear before him. 15 That which is has been long ago, and that which is to be has been long ago: and God seeks again that which is passed away. 16 Moreover I saw under the sun, in the place of justice, that wickedness was there; and in the place of righteousness, that wickedness was there. 17 I said in my heart, “God will judge the righteous and the wicked; for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.” 18 I said in my heart, “As for the sons of men, God tests them, so that they may see that they themselves are like animals. 19 For that which happens to the sons of men happens to animals. Even one thing happens to them. As the one dies, so the other dies. Yes, they have all one breath; and man has no advantage over the animals: for all is vanity. 20 All go to one place. All are from the dust, and all turn to dust again. 21 Who knows the spirit of man, whether it goes upward, and the spirit of the animal, whether it goes downward to the eretz?” 22 Therefore I saw that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his works; for that is his portion: for who can bring him to see what will be after him?

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 6:1 – 13

6:1 Working together, we entreat also that you not receive the grace of God in vain, 

2 for he says, “At an acceptable time I listened to you, In a day of salvation I helped you.” Behold, now is the acceptable time. Behold, now is the day of salvation. 

3 We give no occasion of stumbling in anything, that our service may not be blamed, 

4 but in everything commending ourselves, as servants of God, in great endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses, 

5 in beatings, in imprisonments, in riots, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; 

6 in pureness, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Ruach HaKodesh, in sincere love, 

7  in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

8 by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; 

9 as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as punished, and not killed; 

10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. 

11 Our mouth is open to you, Corinthians. Our heart is enlarged. 

12 You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections. 

13 Now in return, I speak as to my children, you also be enlarged.

PSALMS: 12, 42, 72, 102, 132

PROVERBS: 12

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 40:1 – 42:17

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 5:11 – 21

PSALMS: 12

1 Help, LORD;

for the godly man ceases.

For the faithful fail from among the children of men. 

2 Everyone lies to his neighbor.

With flattering lips, and with a double heart, do they speak. 

3 May the LORD cut off all flattering lips,

And the tongue that boasts, 

4 Who have said, “With our tongue will we prevail.

Our lips are our own. Who is lord over us?” 

5 “Because of the oppression of the weak and because of the groaning of the needy,

I will now arise,” says the LORD;

“I will set him in safety from those who malign him.” 

6 The words of the LORD are flawless words,

As silver refined in a clay furnace, purified seven times. 

7 You will keep them, LORD,

You will preserve them from this generation forever. 

8 The wicked walk on every side,

When what is vile is exalted among the sons of men.

PSALMS: 42

1 As the deer pants for the water brooks,

So pants my soul after you, God. 

2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.

When shall I come and appear before God? 

3 My tears have been my food day and night,

While they continually ask me, “Where is your God?” 

4 These things I remember, and pour out my soul within me,

How I used to go with the crowd, and led them to the house of God,

With the voice of joy and praise, a multitude keeping a holy day. 

5 Why are you in despair, my soul?

Why are you disturbed within me?

Hope in God!

For I shall still praise him for the saving help of his presence. 

6 My God, my soul is in despair within me.

Therefore I remember you from the land of the Yarden,

The heights of Hermon, from the hill Mitz`ar. 

7 Deep calls to deep at the noise of your waterfalls.

All your waves and your billows have swept over me. 

8 The LORD will command his loving kindness in the daytime.

In the night his song shall be with me:

A prayer to the God of my life. 

9 I will ask God, my rock,

“Why have you forgotten me?

Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?” 

10 As with a sword in my bones, my adversaries reproach me,

While they continually ask me, “Where is your God?” 

11 Why are you in despair, my soul?

Why are you disturbed within me?

Hope in God!

For I shall still praise him,

The saving help of my countenance, and my God.

PSALMS: 72

1 God, give the king your justice;

Your righteousness to the royal son. 

2 He will judge your people with righteousness,

And your poor with justice. 

3 The mountains shall bring prosperity to the people;

The hills bring the fruit of righteousness. 

4 He will judge the poor of the people.

He will save the children of the needy,

And will break the oppressor in pieces. 

5 They shall fear you while the sun endures;

And as long as the moon, throughout all generations. 

6 He will come down like rain on the mown grass,

As showers that water the eretz. 

7 In his days, the righteous shall flourish,

And abundance of shalom, until the moon is no more. 

8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea,

From the River to the ends of the eretz. 

9 Those who dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him.

His enemies shall lick the dust. 

10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles will bring tribute.

The kings of Sheva and Seva shall offer gifts. 

11 Yes, all kings shall fall down before him.

All nations shall serve him. 

12 For he will deliver the needy when he cries;

The poor, who has no helper.

13 He will have pity on the poor and needy.

He will save the souls of the needy. 

14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence.

Their blood will be precious in his sight. 

15 They shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheva.

Men shall pray for him continually.

They shall bless him all day long. 

16 There shall be abundance of grain throughout the land.

Its fruit sways like Levanon.

Let it flourish, thriving like the grass of the field. 

17 His name endures forever.

His name continues as long as the sun.

Men shall be blessed by him.

All nations will call him blessed. 

18 Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Yisra’el,

Who alone does marvelous deeds.

19 Blessed be his glorious name forever!

Let the whole eretz be filled with his glory!

Amein and amein. 

20 This ends the prayers by David, the son of Yishai.

PSALMS: 102

1 Hear my prayer, LORD! Let my cry come to you. 

2 Don’t hide your face from me in the day of my distress.

Turn your ear to me.

Answer me quickly in the day when I call. 

3 For my days consume away like smoke.

My bones are burned as a firebrand. 

4 My heart is blighted like grass, and withered,

For I forget to eat my bread. 

5 By reason of the voice of my groaning,

My bones stick to my skin. 

6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness.

I have become as an owl of the waste places. 

7 I watch, and have become like a sparrow that is alone on the housetop. 

8 My enemies reproach me all day.

Those who are mad at me use my name as a curse. 

9 For I have eaten ashes like bread,

And mixed my drink with tears, 

10 Because of your indignation and your wrath,

For you have taken me up, and thrown me away. 

11 My days are like a long shadow.

I have withered like grass. 

12 But you, LORD, will abide forever;

Your renown endures to all generations. 

13 You will arise and have mercy on Tziyon;

For it is time to have pity on her.

Yes, the set time has come. 

14 For your servants take pleasure in her stones,

And have pity on her dust. 

15 So the nations will fear the name of the LORD;

All the kings of the eretz your glory. 

16 For the LORD has built up Tziyon.

He has appeared in his glory. 

17 He has responded to the prayer of the destitute,

And has not despised their prayer. 

18 This will be written for the generation to come.

A people which will be created will praise the LORD. 

19 For he has looked down from the height of his sanctuary.

From heaven, the LORD saw the eretz; 

20 To hear the groans of the prisoner;

To free those who are condemned to death; 

21 That men may declare the name of the LORD in Tziyon,

And his praise in Yerushalayim; 

22 When the peoples are gathered together,

The kingdoms, to serve the LORD. 

23 He weakened my strength along the course.

He shortened my days. 

24 I said, “My God, don’t take me away in the midst of my days.

Your years are throughout all generations. 

25 Of old, you laid the foundation of the eretz.

The heavens are the work of your hands. 

26 They will perish, but you will endure.

Yes, all of them will wear out like a garment.

You will change them like a cloak, and they will be changed. 

27 But you are the same.

Your years will have no end.

28 The children of your servants will continue.

Their seed will be established before you.”

PSALMS: 132

1 LORD, remember David and all his affliction, 

2 How he swore to the LORD,

And vowed to the Mighty One of Ya`akov: 

3 “Surely I will not come into the structure of my house,

Nor go up into my bed; 

4 I will not give sleep to my eyes,

Or slumber to my eyelids;

5 Until I find out a place for the LORD,

A dwelling for the Mighty One of Ya`akov.” 

6 Behold, we heard of it in Efratah.

We found it in the field of Ya`ar: 

7 “We will go into his dwelling place.

We will worship at his footstool. 

8 Arise, LORD, into your resting place;

You, and the ark of your strength. 

9 Let your Kohen be clothed with righteousness.

Let your holy ones shout for joy!” 

10 For your servant David’s sake,

Don’t turn away the face of your anointed one.

11 The LORD has sworn to David in truth.

He will not turn from it:

“I will set the fruit of your body on your throne. 

12 If your children will keep my covenant,

My testimony that I will teach them,

Their children also will sit on your throne forevermore.” 

13 For the LORD has chosen Tziyon.

He has desired it for his habitation. 

14 “This is my resting place forever.

Here I will live, for I have desired it. 

15 I will abundantly bless her provision.

I will satisfy her poor with bread. 

16 Her Kohanim I will also clothe with salvation.

Her holy ones will shout aloud for joy. 

17 There I will make the horn of David to bud.

I have ordained a lamp for my anointed. 

18 I will clothe his enemies with shame,

But on himself, his crown will be resplendant.”

PROVERBS: 12

1 Whoever loves correction loves knowledge,

But he who hates reproof is stupid. 

2 A good man shall obtain favor from the LORD,

But he will condemn a man of wicked devices. 

3 A man shall not be established by wickedness,

But the root of the righteous shall not be moved. 

4 A worthy woman is the crown of her husband,

But a disgraceful wife is as rottenness in his bones. 

5 The thoughts of the righteous are just.

The advice of the wicked is deceitful. 

6 The words of the wicked are about lying in wait for blood,

But the speech of the upright rescues them. 

7 The wicked are overthrown, and are no more,

But the house of the righteous shall stand. 

8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom,

But he who has a warped mind shall be despised. 

9 Better is he who is lightly esteemed, and has a servant,

Than he who honors himself, and lacks bread. 

10 A righteous man regards the life of his animal,

But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. 

11 He who tills his land shall have plenty of bread,

But he who chases fantasies is void of understanding. 

12 The wicked desires the plunder of evil men,

But the root of the righteous flourishes. 

13 An evil man is trapped by sinfulness of lips,

But the righteous shall come out of trouble. 

14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth.

The doings of a man’s hands shall be rewarded to him. 

15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,

But he who is wise listens to counsel. 

16 A fool shows his annoyance the same day,

But one who overlooks an insult is prudent.

17 He who is truthful testifies honestly,

But a false witness lies. 

18 There is one who speaks rashly like the piercing of a sword,

But the tongue of the wise heals. 

19 Truth’s lips will be established forever,

But a lying tongue is only momentary. 

20 Deceit is in the heart of those who plot evil,

But joy comes to the promoters of shalom. 

21 No mischief shall happen to the righteous,

But the wicked shall be filled with evil. 

22 Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD,

But those who do the truth are his delight. 

23 A prudent man keeps his knowledge,

But the hearts of fools proclaim foolishness. 

24 The hands of the diligent ones shall rule,

But laziness ends in slave labor.

25 Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down,

But a kind word makes it glad. 

26 The righteous is cautious in friendship,

But the way of the wicked leads them astray. 

27 The slothful man doesn’t roast his game,

But the possessions of diligent men are prized. 

28 In the way of righteousness is life;

In its path there is no death.

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 40:1 – 42:17

40:1 Moreover the LORD answered Iyov, 2 “Shall he who argues contend with Shaddai? He who argues with God, let him answer it.” 3 Then Iyov answered the LORD, 4 “Behold, I am of small account. What shall I answer you? I lay my hand on my mouth. 5 I have spoken once, and I will not answer; Yes, twice, but I will proceed no further.” 6 Then the LORD answered Iyov out of the whirlwind, 7 “Now brace yourself like a man. I will question you, and you will answer me. 8 Will you even annul my judgment? Will you condemn me, that you may be justified? 9 Or have you an arm like God? Can you thunder with a voice like him? 10 “Now deck yourself with excellency and dignity. Array yourself with honor and majesty. 11 Pour forth the fury of your anger. Look on everyone who is proud, and bring him low. 12 Look on everyone who is proud, and humble him. Crush the wicked in their place. 13 Hide them in the dust together. Bind their faces in the hidden place. 14 Then I will also admit to you That your own right hand can save you. 15 “See now, behemot, which I made as well as you. He eats grass as an ox. 16 Look now, his strength is in his loins, His force is in the muscles of his belly. 17 He moves his tail like a cedar: The sinews of his thighs are knit together. 18 His bones are like tubes of brass. His limbs are like bars of iron. 19 He is the chief of the ways of God. He who made him gives him his sword. 20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, Where all the animals of the field do play. 21 He lies under the lotus trees, In the covert of the reed, and the marsh. 22 The lotuses cover him with their shade. The willows of the brook surround him. 23 Behold, if a river overflows, he doesn’t tremble. He is confident, though the Yarden swells even to his mouth. 

24 Shall any take him when he is on the watch, Or pierce through his nose with a snare?

41:1 “Can you draw out Livyatan with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord? 2 Can you put a rope into his nose? Or pierce his jaw through with a hook? 3 Will he make many petitions to you? Or will he speak soft words to you? 4 Will he make a covenant with you, That you should take him for a servant forever? 5 Will you play with him as with a bird? Or will you bind him for your girls? 6 Will traders barter for him? Will they part him among the merchants? 7 Can you fill his skin with barbed irons, Or his head with fish-spears? 8 Lay your hand on him. Remember the battle, and do so no more. 

9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain. Will not one be cast down even at the sight of him? 10 None is so fierce that he dare stir him up. Who then is he who can stand before me? 11 Who has first given to me, that I should repay him? Everything under the heavens is mine. 12 “I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, Nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame. 13 Who can strip off his outer garment? Who shall come within his jaws? 14 Who can open the doors of his face? Around his teeth is terror. 15 Strong scales are his pride, Shut up together with a close seal. 16 One is so near to another, That no air can come between them. 17 They are joined one to another; They stick together, so that they can’t be pulled apart. 18 His sneezing flashes forth light, His eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. 19 Out of his mouth go burning torches, Sparks of fire leap forth. 20 Out of his nostrils a smoke goes, As of a boiling pot over a fire of reeds. 21 His breath kindles coals. A flame goes forth from his mouth. 22 In his neck there is strength. Terror dances before him. 23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together. They are firm on him. They can’t be moved. 24 His heart is as firm as a stone, Yes, firm as the lower millstone. 25 When he raises himself up, the mighty are afraid. They retreat before his thrashing. 26 If one lay at him with the sword, it can’t avail; Nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft. 27 He counts iron as straw; And brass as rotten wood. 28 The arrow can’t make him flee. Sling stones are like chaff to him. 29 Clubs are counted as stubble. He laughs at the rushing of the javelin. 30 His undersides are like sharp potsherds, Leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge. 31 He makes the deep to boil like a pot. He makes the sea like a pot of ointment. 32 He makes a path to shine after him. One would think the deep had white hair. 33 On eretz there is not his equal, That is made without fear. 34 He sees everything that is high: He is king over all the sons of pride.”

42:1 Then Iyov answered the LORD, 2 “I know that you can do all things, And that no purpose of yours can be restrained. 3 You asked, ‘Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered that which I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, which I didn’t know. 4 You said, ‘Listen, now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you will answer me.’ 5 I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees you. 

6 Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.” 7 It was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words to Iyov, the LORD said to Elifaz the Temanite, “My wrath is kindled against you, and against your two friends; for you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Iyov has. 

8 Now therefore, take to yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, and go to my servant Iyov, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Iyov shall pray for you, for I will accept him, that I not deal with you according to your folly. For you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Iyov has.” 9 So Elifaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuchite and Tzofar the Na`amatite went, and did what the LORD commanded them, and the LORD accepted Iyov. 10 The LORD turned the captivity of Iyov, when he prayed for his friends. The LORD gave Iyov twice as much as he had before. 11 Then came there to him all his brothers, and all his sisters, and all those who had been of his acquaintance before, and ate bread with him in his house. They comforted him, and consoled him concerning all the evil that the LORD had brought on him. Everyone also gave him a piece of money, and everyone a ring of gold. 12 So the LORD blessed the latter end of Iyov more than his beginning. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand female donkeys. 13 He had also seven sons and three daughters. 14 He called the name of the first, Yemimah; and the name of the second, Ketzi`a; and the name of the third, Keren-Happukh. 15 In all the land were no women found so beautiful as the daughters of Iyov. Their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers. 16 After this Iyov lived one hundred forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, to four generations. 17So Iyov died, being old and full of days.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 5:11 – 21

5:11 Knowing therefore the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are revealed to God; and I hope that we are revealed also in your consciences. 

12 For we are not commending ourselves to you again, but speak as giving you occasion of boasting on our behalf, that you may have something to answer those who boast in appearance, and not in heart. 

13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God. Or if we are of sober mind, it is for you. 

14 For the love of Messiah constrains us; because we judge thus, that one died for all, therefore all died. 

15 He died for all, that those who live should no longer live to themselves, but to him who for their sakes died and rose again. 

16 Therefore we know no one after the flesh from now on. Even though we have known Messiah after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more. 

17 Therefore if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new. 

18 But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Yeshua the Messiah, and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation; 

19 namely, that God was in Messiah reconciling the world to himself, not reckoning to them their trespasses, and having committed to us the word of reconciliation. 

20 We are therefore ambassadors on behalf of Messiah, as though God were entreating by us. We beg you on behalf of Messiah, be reconciled to God. 

21 For him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

JUNE 11

PSALMS: 11, 41, 71, 101, 131

PROVERBS: 11

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 37:1 – 39:30

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 4:13 – 5:10

PSALMS: 11

1 In the LORD do I take refuge.

How can you say to my soul,

“Flee as a bird to your mountain!” 

2 For, behold, the wicked bend their bows.

They set their arrows on the strings,

That they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart. 

3 If the foundations are destroyed,

What can the righteous do? 

4 The LORD is in his holy temple.

The LORD is on his throne in heaven.

His eyes observe.

His eyes examine the children of men. 

5 The LORD examines the righteous,

But the wicked and him who loves violence his soul hates.

6 On the wicked he will rain blazing coals;

Fire, sulfur, and scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup. 

7 For the LORD is righteous.

He loves righteousness.

The upright shall see his face.

PSALMS: 41

1 Blessed is he who considers the poor:

The LORD will deliver him in the day of evil. 

2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive,

He shall be blessed on the eretz,

And he will not surrender him to the will of his enemies. 

3 The LORD will sustain him on his sickbed,

And restore him from his bed of illness. 

4 I said, “LORD, have mercy on me.

Heal me, for I have sinned against you.” 

5 My enemies speak evil against me:

“When will he die, and his name perish?” 

6 If he come to see me, he speaks falsehood.

His heart gathers iniquity to itself.

When he goes abroad, he tells it. 

7 All who hate me whisper together against me.

They imagine the worst for me.

8 “An evil disease,” they say, “has afflicted him.

Now that he lies he shall rise up no more.” 

9 Yes, my own familiar friend, in whom I trusted,

Who ate bread with me,

Has lifted up his heel against me.

10 But you, LORD, have mercy on me, and raise me up,

That I may repay them. 

11 By this I know that you delight in me,

Because my enemy doesn’t triumph over me. 

12 As for me, you uphold me in my integrity,

And set me in your presence forever. 

13 Blessed be the LORD, the God of Yisra’el,

From everlasting and to everlasting! Amein and amein.

PSALMS: 71

1 In you, LORD, I take refuge.

Never let me be put to shame. 

2 Deliver me in your righteousness, and rescue me.

Turn your ear to me, and save me. 

3 Be to me a rock of refuge to which I may always go.

Give the command to save me,

For you are my rock and my fortress. 

4 Rescue me, my God, from the hand of the wicked,

From the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. 

5 For you are my hope, Lord GOD;

My confidence from my youth. 

6 I have relied on you from the womb.

You are he who took me out of my mother’s womb.

I will always praise you. 

7 I am a marvel to many,

But you are my strong refuge. 

8 My mouth shall be filled with your praise,

With your honor all the day. 

9 Don’t reject me in my old age.

Don’t forsake me when my strength fails. 

10 For my enemies talk about me.

Those who watch for my soul conspire together, 

11 Saying, “God has forsaken him.

Pursue and take him, for no one will rescue him.” 

12 God, don’t be far from me.

My God, hurry to help me. 

13 Let my accusers be put to shame and consumed.

Let them be covered with disgrace and scorn who want to harm me. 

14 But I will always hope,

And will add to all of your praise. 

15 My mouth will tell about your righteousness,

And of your salvation all day,

Though I don’t know its full measure. 

16 I will come with the mighty acts of the Lord GOD.

I will make mention of your righteousness, even of yours alone. 

17 God, you have taught me from my youth.

Until now, I have declared your wondrous works. 

18 Yes, even when I am old and gray-headed,

God, don’t forsake me,

Until I have declared your strength to the next generation,

Your might to everyone who is to come. 

19 Your righteousness also, God, reaches to the heavens;

You who have done great things.

God, who is like you? 

20 You, who have shown us many and bitter troubles,

You will let me live.

You will bring us up again from the depths of the eretz. 

21 Increase my honor, And comfort me again. 

22 I will also praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God.

I sing praises to you with the lyre,

Holy One of Yisra’el. 

23 My lips shall shout for joy!

My soul, which you have redeemed, sings praises to you! 

24 My tongue will also talk about your righteousness all day long,

For they are put to shame, and they are confounded,

who want to harm me.

PSALMS: 101

1 I will sing of loving kindness and justice.

To you, LORD, I will sing praises. 

2 I will be careful to live a blameless life.

When will you come to me?

I will walk within my house with a blameless heart. 

3 I will set no vile thing before my eyes.

I hate the deeds of faithless men.

They will not cling to me. 

4 A perverse heart will be far from me.

I will have nothing to do with evil. 

5 I will silence whoever secretly slanders his neighbor.

I won’t tolerate one who is haughty and conceited. 

6 My eyes will be on the faithful of the land,

That they may dwell with me.

He who walks in a perfect way, He will serve me.

7 He who practices deceit won’t dwell within my house.

He who speaks falsehood won’t be established before my eyes. 

8 Morning by morning, I will destroy all the wicked of the land;

To cut off all the workers of iniquity from the LORD’s city.

PSALMS: 131

1 LORD, my heart isn’t haughty, nor my eyes lofty;

Neither do I concern myself with great matters,

Or things too wonderful for me. 

2 Surely I have stilled and quieted my soul,

Like a weaned child with his mother,

Like a weaned child is my soul within me. 

3 Yisra’el, hope in the LORD,

From this time forth and forevermore.

PROVERBS: 11

1 A false balance is an abomination to the LORD,

But accurate weights are his delight. 

2 When pride comes, then comes shame,

But with humility comes wisdom. 

3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them,

But the perverseness of the treacherous shall destroy them. 

4 Riches don’t profit in the day of wrath,

But righteousness delivers from death. 

5 The righteousness of the blameless will direct his way,

But the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness. 

6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them,

But the unfaithful will be trapped by evil desires. 

7 When a wicked man dies, hope perishes,

And expectation of power comes to nothing. 

8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble,

And the wicked takes his place.

9 With his mouth the godless man destroys his neighbor,

But the righteous will be delivered through knowledge. 

10 When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices.

When the wicked perish, there is shouting. 

11 By the blessing of the upright, the city is exalted,

But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. 

12 One who despises his neighbor is void of wisdom,

But a man of understanding holds his shalom. 

13 One who brings gossip betrays a confidence,

But one who is of a trustworthy spirit is one who keeps a secret. 

14 Where there is no wise guidance, the nation falls,

But in the multitude of counselors there is victory. 

15 He who is collateral for a stranger will suffer for it,

But he who refuses pledges of collateral is secure. 

16 A gracious woman obtains honor,

But violent men obtain riches. 

17 The merciful man does good to his own soul,

But he who is cruel troubles his own flesh. 

18 The wicked earns deceitful wages,

But he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward. 

19 He who is truly righteous gets life.

He who pursues evil gets death. 

20 Those who are perverse in heart are an abomination to the LORD,

But those whose ways are blameless are his delight. 

21 Most assuredly, the evil man will not be unpunished,

But the seed of the righteous will be delivered. 

22 Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout,

Is a beautiful woman who lacks discretion. 

23 The desire of the righteous is only good.

The expectation of the wicked is wrath. 

24 There is one who scatters, and increases yet more.

There is one who withholds more than is appropriate, but gains poverty. 

25 The liberal soul shall be made fat.

He who waters shall be watered also himself. 

26 He who withholds grain, the people will curse him,

But blessing will be on the head of him who sells it. 

27  He who diligently seeks good seeks favor,

But he who searches after evil, it shall come to him. 

28 He who trusts in his riches will fall,

But the righteous shall flourish as the green leaf. 

29 He who troubles his own house shall inherit the wind.

The foolish shall be servant to the wise of heart. 

30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life.

He who is wise wins souls. 

31 Behold, the righteous shall be repaid in the eretz;

How much more the wicked and the sinner!

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 37:1 – 39:30

37:1 “Yes, at this my heart trembles, And is moved out of its place. 2 Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice, The sound that goes out of his mouth. 3 He sends it forth under the whole sky, And his lightning to the ends of the eretz. 4 After it a voice roars. He thunders with the voice of his majesty; He doesn’t hold back anything when his voice is heard. 5 God thunders marvelously with his voice. He does great things, which we can’t comprehend. 6 For he says to the snow, ‘Fall on the eretz;’ Likewise to the shower of rain, And to the showers of his mighty rain. 7 He seals up the hand of every man, That all men whom he has made may know it. 8 Then the animals go into coverts, And remain in their dens. 9 Out of its chamber comes the storm, And cold out of the north. 10 By the breath of God, ice is given, And the breadth of the waters is frozen. 11 Yes, he loads the thick cloud with moisture. He spreads abroad the cloud of his lightning. 12 It is turned round about by his guidance, That they may do whatever he commands them On the surface of the habitable world, 13 Whether it is for correction, or for his land, Or for lovingkindness, that he causes it to come. 14 “Listen to this, Iyov: Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God. 15 Do you know how God controls them, And causes the lightning of his cloud to shine? 16 Do you know the workings of the clouds, The wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge? 17 You whose clothing is warm, When the eretz is still by reason of the south wind? 18 Can you, with him, spread out the sky, Which is strong as a cast metal mirror? 19 Teach us what we shall tell him; For we can’t make our case by reason of darkness. 20 Shall it be told him that I would speak? Or should a man wish that he were swallowed up? 21 Now men don’t see the light which is bright in the skies, But the wind passes, and clears them. 22 Out of the north comes golden splendor; With God is awesome majesty. 23 We can’t reach Shaddai, He is exalted in power; In justice and great righteousness he will not oppress. 24 Therefore men revere him. He doesn’t regard any who are wise of heart.”

38:1 Then the LORD answered Iyov out of the whirlwind, 2 “Who is this who darkens counsel By words without knowledge? 3 Brace yourself like a man, For I will question you, then you answer me! 4 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the eretz? Declare, if you have understanding. 5 Who determined the measures of it, if you know? Or who stretched the line on it? 6 Whereupon were the foundations of it fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, 7 When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8 “Or who shut up the sea with doors, When it broke forth from the womb, 9 When I made clouds the garment of it, Thick darkness a swaddling-band for it, 10 Marked out for it my bound, Set bars and doors, 11 And said, ‘Here you may come, but no further; Here shall your proud waves be stayed?’ 12 “Have you commanded the morning in your days, And caused the dawn to know its place; 13 That it might take hold of the ends of the eretz, And shake the wicked out of it? 14 It is changed as clay under the seal, And stands forth as a garment. 15 From the wicked, their light is withheld, The high arm is broken. 16 “Have you entered into the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in the recesses of the deep? 17 Have the gates of death been revealed to you? Or have you seen the gates of the shadow of death? 18 Have you comprehended the eretz in its breadth? Declare, if you know it all. 19 “What is the way to the dwelling of light? As for darkness, where is the place of it, 20 That you should take it to the bound of it, That you should discern the paths to the house of it? 21 Surely you know, for you were born then, And the number of your days is great! 22 Have you entered the treasuries of the snow, Or have you seen the treasures of the hail, 23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, Against the day of battle and war? 24 By what way is the lightning distributed, Or the east wind scattered on the eretz? 25 Who has cut a channel for the flood water, Or the path for the thunderstorm; 26 To cause it to rain on a land where no man is; On the wilderness, in which there is no man; 27 To satisfy the waste and desolate ground, To cause the tender grass to spring forth? 28 Does the rain have a father? Or who fathers the drops of dew? 29 Out of whose womb came the ice? The gray frost of the sky, who has given birth to it? 30 The waters become hard like stone, When the surface of the deep is frozen. 31“Can you bind the cluster of the Kima, Or loosen the cords of Kesil? 32 Can you lead forth the Mazzarot in their season? Or can you guide Ayish with her cubs? 33 Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you establish the dominion of it over the eretz? 34 “Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, That abundance of waters may cover you? 35 Can you send forth lightnings, that they may go? Do they report to you, ‘Here we are?’ 36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? Or who has given understanding to the mind? 37 Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can pour out the bottles of the sky, 38 When the dust runs into a mass, And the clods of eretz stick together? 39 “Can you hunt the prey for the lioness, Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions, 40 When they crouch in their dens, And lie in wait in the thicket? 41 Who provides for the raven his prey, When his young ones cry to God, And wander for lack of food?

39:1 “Do you know the time when the mountain goats give birth? Do you watch when the doe bears fawns? 2 Can you number the months that they fulfill? Or do you know the time when they give birth? 3 They bow themselves, they bring forth their young, They end their labor pains. 4 Their young ones become strong. They grow up in the open field. They go forth, and don’t return again. 5 “Who has set the wild donkey free? Or who has loosened the bonds of the swift donkey, 6 Whose home I have made the wilderness, And the salt land his dwelling-place? 7 He scorns the tumult of the city, Neither hears he the shouting of the driver. 8 The range of the mountains is his pasture, He searches after every green thing. 9 “Will the wild ox be content to serve you? Or will he stay by your feeding trough? 10 Can you hold the wild ox in the furrow with his harness? Or will he till the valleys after you? 11 Will you trust him, because his strength is great? Or will you leave to him your labor? 12 Will you confide in him, that he will bring home your seed, And gather the grain of your threshing floor? 13 “The wings of the bas haya`anah wave proudly; But are they the pinions and plumage of love? 14 For she leaves her eggs on the eretz, Warms them in the dust, 15 And forgets that the foot may crush them, Or that the wild animal may trample them. 16 She deals harshly with her young ones, as if they were not hers. Though her labor is in vain, she is without fear, 17 Because God has deprived her of wisdom, Neither has he imparted to her understanding. 18 When she lifts up herself on high, She scorns the horse and his rider. 19 “Have you given the horse might? Have you clothed his neck with a quivering mane? 20 Have you made him to leap as a arbeh? The glory of his snorting is awesome. 21 He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength: He goes out to meet the armed men. 22 He mocks at fear, and is not dismayed; Neither does he turn back from the sword. 23 The quiver rattles against him, The flashing spear and the javelin. 24 He eats up the ground with fierceness and rage, Neither does he stand still at the sound of the shofar. 25 As often as the shofar sounds he snorts, ‘Aha!’ He smells the battle afar off, The thunder of the captains, and the shouting. 26 “Is it by your wisdom that the netz soars, And stretches her wings toward the south? 27  Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up, And makes his nest on high? 28 On the cliff he dwells, and makes his home, On the point of the cliff, and the stronghold. 29 From there he spies out the prey. His eyes see it afar off. 30 His young ones also suck up blood. Where the slain are, there he is.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 4:13 – 5:10

4:13 But having the same spirit of faith, according to that which is written, “I believed, and therefore I spoke.” We also believe, and therefore also we speak; 14 knowing that he who raised the Lord Yeshua will raise us also with Yeshua, and will present us with you. 15 For all things are for your sakes, that the grace, being multiplied through the many, may cause the thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God. 16 Therefore we don’t faint, but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is for the moment, works for us more and more exceedingly an eternal weight of glory; 18 while we don’t look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

5:1 For we know that if the earthly house of our tent is dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens. 2 For most assuredly in this we groan, longing to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven; 3 if so be that being clothed we will not be found naked. 4 For indeed we who are in this tent do groan, being burdened; not that we desire to be unclothed, but that we desire to be clothed, that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now he who made us for this very thing is God, who also gave to us the down payment of the Spirit. 6 Being therefore always of good courage, and knowing that, while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord; 7  for we walk by faith, not by sight. 8 We are of good courage, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be at home with the Lord. 9 Therefore also we make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to be well pleasing to him. 10 For we must all be revealed before the judgment seat of Messiah; that each one may receive the things in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

PSALMS: 10, 40, 70, 100, 130

PROVERBS: 10

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 34:1 – 36:33

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 4:1 – 12

PSALMS: 10

1 Why do you stand far off, LORD?

Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? 

2 In arrogance, the wicked hunt down the weak;

They are caught in the schemes that they devise. 

3 For the wicked boasts of his heart’s cravings,

He blesses the greedy, and condemns the LORD. 

4 The wicked, in the pride of his face,

Has no room in his thoughts for God. 

5 His ways are prosperous at all times;

He is haughty, and your laws are far from his sight:

As for all his adversaries, he sneers at them. 

6 He says in his heart, “I shall not be shaken;

For generations I shall have no trouble.” 

7  His mouth is full of cursing, deceit, and oppression.

Under his tongue is mischief and iniquity. 

8 He lies in wait near the villages.

From ambushes, he murders the innocent.

His eyes are secretly set against the helpless.

9 He lurks in secret as a lion in his ambush.

He lies in wait to catch the helpless.

He catches the helpless, when he draws him in his net.

10 The helpless are crushed, they collapse,

They fall under his strength. 

11 He says in his heart, “God has forgotten.

He hides his face. He will never see it.” 

12 Arise, LORD! God, lift up your hand!

Don’t forget the helpless. 

13 Why does the wicked condemn God,

And say in his heart, “God won’t call me into account?” 

14 But you do see trouble and grief;

You consider it to take it into your hand.

You help the victim and the fatherless. 

15 Break the arm of the wicked.

As for the evil man, seek out his wickedness until you find none. 

16 The LORD is King forever and ever!

The nations will perish out of his land. 

17 LORD, you have heard the desire of the humble.

You will prepare their heart.

You will cause your ear to hear, 

18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed,

That man who is of the eretz may terrify no more.

PSALMS: 40

1 I waited patiently for the LORD.

He turned to me, and heard my cry. 

2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay.

He set my feet on a rock, and gave me a firm place to stand. 

3 He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God.

Many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. 

4 Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust,

And doesn’t respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. 

5 Many, LORD, my God, are the wonderful works which you have done,

And your thoughts which are toward us.

They can’t be set in order to you;

If I would declare and speak of them,

they are more than can be numbered. 

6 Sacrifice and offering you didn’t desire.

My ears have you opened:

Burnt offering and sin offering have you not required. 

7 Then I said, “Behold, I have come.

It is written about me in the book in the scroll.

8 I delight to do your will, my God.

Yes, your law is within my heart.”

9 I have proclaimed glad news of righteousness in the great assembly.

Behold, I will not seal my lips, LORD, you know. 

10 I have not hidden your righteousness within my heart.

I have declared your faithfulness and your salvation.

I have not concealed your loving kindness and your truth from the great assembly. 

11 Don’t withhold your tender mercies from me, LORD.

Let your loving kindness and your truth continually preserve me. 

12 For innumerable evils have surrounded me.

My iniquities have overtaken me,

so that I am not able to look up.

They are more than the hairs of my head.

My heart has failed me. 

13 Be pleased, LORD, to deliver me.

Hurry to help me, LORD. 

14 Let them be put to shame and confounded together

who seek after my soul to destroy it.

Let them be turned backward and

brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt. 

15 Let them be desolate by reason of their shame that tell me, “Aha! Aha!”

16 Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you.

Let such as love your salvation say continually,

“Let the LORD be exalted!”

17 But I am poor and needy;

May the Lord think about me.

You are my help and my deliverer.

Don’t delay, my God.

PSALMS: 70

1 Hurry, God, to deliver me.

Come quickly to help me, LORD.

2 Let them be put to shame and confounded who seek my soul.

Let those who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace. 

3 Let them be turned because of their shame

Who say, “Aha! Aha!” 

4 Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you.

Let those who love your yeshu`ah continually say,

“Let God be exalted!” 

5 But I am poor and needy.

Come to me quickly, God.

You are my help and my deliverer,

LORD, don’t delay.

PSALMS: 100

1 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all you lands! 

2 Serve the LORD with gladness.

Come before his presence with singing. 

3 Know that the LORD, he is God.

It is he who has made us, and we are his.

We are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 

4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,

Into his courts with praise.

Give thanks to him, and bless his name. 

5 For the LORD is good.

His loving kindness endures forever,

His faithfulness to all generations.

PSALMS: 130

1 Out of the depths I have cried to you, LORD. 

2 Lord, hear my voice.

Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my petitions. 

3 If you, the LORD, kept a record of sins,

Lord, who could stand? 

4 But there is forgiveness with you,

Therefore you are feared. 

5 I wait for the LORD.

My soul waits.

I hope in his word. 

6 My soul longs for the Lord more than watchmen long for the morning;

More than watchmen for the morning. 

7 Yisra’el, hope in the LORD,

For with the LORD there is loving kindness.

With him is abundant redemption. 

8 He will redeem Yisra’el from all their sins.

PROVERBS: 10

1 The proverbs of Shlomo.

A wise son makes a glad father;

But a foolish son brings grief to his mother. 

2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing,

But righteousness delivers from death. 

3 The LORD will not allow the soul of the righteous to go hungry,

But he thrusts away the desire of the wicked. 

4 He becomes poor who works with a lazy hand,

But the hand of the diligent brings wealth. 

5 He who gathers in summer is a wise son,

But he who sleeps during the harvest is a son who causes shame. 

6 Blessings are on the head of the righteous,

But violence covers the mouth of the wicked. 

7 The memory of the righteous is blessed,

But the name of the wicked will rot. 

8 The wise in heart accept mitzvot,

But a chattering fool will fall.

9 He who walks blamelessly walks surely,

But he who perverts his ways will be found out. 

10 One winking with the eye causes sorrow,

But a chattering fool will fall. 

11 The mouth of the righteous is a spring of life,

But violence covers the mouth of the wicked. 

12Hatred stirs up strife,

But love covers all wrongs. 

13 Wisdom is found on the lips of him who has discernment,

But a rod is for the back of him who is void of understanding. 

14 Wise men lay up knowledge,

But the mouth of the foolish is near ruin. 

15 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city.

The destruction of the poor is their poverty. 

16 The labor of the righteous leads to life.

The increase of the wicked leads to sin. 

17  He is in the way of life who heeds correction,

But he who forsakes reproof leads others astray. 

18 He who hides hatred has lying lips.

He who utters a slander is a fool. 

19 In the multitude of words there is no lack of disobedience,

But he who restrains his lips does wisely. 

20 The tongue of the righteous is like choice silver.

The heart of the wicked is of little worth. 

21 The lips of the righteous feed many,

But the foolish die for lack of understanding.

22 The blessing of the LORD brings wealth,

And he adds no trouble to it. 

23 It is a fool’s pleasure to do wickedness,

But wisdom is a man of understanding’s pleasure. 

24 What the wicked fear, will overtake them,

But the desire of the righteous will be granted. 

25 When the whirlwind passes, the wicked is no more;

But the righteous is an everlasting foundation. 

26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes,

So is the sluggard to those who send him. 

27 The fear of the LORD prolongs days,

But the years of the wicked shall be shortened. 

28 The prospect of the righteous is joy,

But the hope of the wicked will perish. 

29 The way of the LORD is a stronghold to the upright,

But it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity. 

30 The righteous will never be removed,

But the wicked will not dwell in the land. 

31 The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom,

But the perverse tongue will be cut off. 

32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable,

But the mouth of the wicked is perverse.

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 34:1 – 36:33

34:1 Moreover Elihu answered, 2 “Hear my words, you wise men; Give ear to me, you who have knowledge. 3 For the ear tries words, As the palate tastes food. 4 Let us choose for us that which is right. Let us know among ourselves what is good. 5 For Iyov has said, ‘I am righteous, God has taken away my right: 6 Notwithstanding my right I am considered a liar; My wound is incurable, though I am without disobedience.’ 7 What man is like Iyov, Who drinks up scoffing like water, 8 Who goes in company with the workers of iniquity, And walks with wicked men? 9 For he has said, ‘It profits a man nothing That he should delight himself with God.’ 10 “Therefore listen to me, you men of understanding: Far be it from God, that he should do wickedness, From Shaddai, that he should commit iniquity. 11 For the work of a man will he render to him, And cause every man to find according to his ways. 12 Yes surely, God will not do wickedly, Neither will Shaddai pervert justice. 13 Who gave him a charge over the eretz? Or who has appointed him over the whole world? 14 If he set his heart on himself, If he gathered to himself his spirit and his breath; 15 All flesh would perish together, And man would turn again to dust. 16 “If now you have understanding, hear this. Listen to the voice of my words. 17 Shall even one who hates justice govern? Will you condemn him who is righteous and mighty?– 18 Who says to a king, ‘Vile!’ Or to nobles, ‘Wicked!’ 19 Who doesn’t respect the persons of princes, Nor regards the rich more than the poor; For they all are the work of his hands. 20 In a moment they die, even at midnight; The people are shaken and pass away, The mighty are taken away without hand. 21 “For his eyes are on the ways of a man, He sees all his goings. 22 There is no darkness, nor thick gloom, Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. 23 For he doesn’t need to consider a man further, That he should go before God in judgment. 24 He breaks in pieces mighty men in ways past finding out, And sets others in their place. 25 Therefore he takes knowledge of their works. He overturns them in the night, so that they are destroyed. 26 He strikes them as wicked men In the open sight of others; 27 Because they turned aside from following him, And wouldn’t have regard in any of his ways: 28 So that they caused the cry of the poor to come to him, He heard the cry of the afflicted. 29 When he gives quietness, who then can condemn? When he hides his face, who then can see him? Alike whether to a nation, or to a man: 30 That the godless man may not reign, That there be no one to ensnare the people. 31 “For has any said to God, ‘I am guilty, but I will not offend any more. 32 Teach me that which I don’t see. If I have done iniquity, I will do it no more’? 33 Shall his recompense be as you desire, that you refuse it? For you must choose, and not I. Therefore speak what you know. 34 Men of understanding will tell me, Yes, every wise man who hears me: 35 ‘Iyov speaks without knowledge, His words are without wisdom.’ 36 I wish that Iyov were tried to the end, Because of his answering like wicked men. 37 For he adds rebellion to his sin. He claps his hands among us, And multiplies his words against God.”

35:1 Moreover Elihu answered, 2 “Do you think this to be your right, Or do you say, ‘My righteousness is more than God’s,’ 3 That you ask, ‘What advantage will it be to you? What profit shall I have, more than if I had sinned?’ 4 I will answer you, And your companions with you. 5 Look to the heavens, and see. See the skies, which are higher than you. 6 If you have sinned, what effect do you have against him? If your transgressions are multiplied, what do you do to him? 7 If you are righteous, what do you give him? Or what does he receive from your hand? 8 Your wickedness may hurt a man as you are; And your righteousness may profit a son of man. 9 “By reason of the multitude of oppressions they cry out; They cry for help by reason of the arm of the mighty.10 But none says, ‘Where is God my Maker, Who gives songs in the night, 11 Who teaches us more than the animals of the eretz, And makes us wiser than the birds of the sky?’ 12 There they cry, but none gives answer, Because of the pride of evil men.13 Surely God will not hear an empty cry, Neither will Shaddai regard it. 14 How much less when you say you don’t see him. The cause is before him, and you wait for him! 15 But now, because he has not visited in his anger, Neither does he greatly regard arrogance. 16 Therefore Iyov opens his mouth with empty talk, And he multiplies words without knowledge.”

36:1 Elihu also continued, and said, 2 “Bear with me a little, and I will show you; For I still have something to say on God’s behalf. 3 I will get my knowledge from afar, And will ascribe righteousness to my Maker. 4 For truly my words are not false. One who is perfect in knowledge is with you. 5 “Behold, God is mighty, and doesn’t despise anyone. He is mighty in strength of understanding. 6 He doesn’t preserve the life of the wicked, But gives to the afflicted their right. 7 He doesn’t withdraw his eyes from the righteous, But with kings on the throne, He sets them forever, and they are exalted. 8 If they are bound in fetters, And are taken in the cords of afflictions, 9 Then he shows them their work, And their transgressions, that they have behaved themselves proudly. 10 He also opens their ears to instruction, And commands that they return from iniquity. 11 If they listen and serve him, They shall spend their days in prosperity, And their years in pleasures. 12 But if they don’t listen, they shall perish by the sword; They shall die without knowledge. 13 “But those who are godless in heart lay up anger. They don’t cry for help when he binds them. 14 They die in youth. Their life perishes among the unclean. 15 He delivers the afflicted by their affliction, And opens their ear in oppression. 16 Yes, he would have allured you out of distress, Into a broad place, where there is no restriction. That which is set on your table would be full of fatness. 17 “But you are full of the judgment of the wicked. Judgment and justice take hold of you. 18 Don’t let riches entice you to wrath, Neither let the great size of a bribe turn you aside. 19 Would your wealth sustain you in distress, Or all the might of your strength? 20 Don’t desire the night, When people are cut off in their place. 21 Take heed, don’t regard iniquity; For this you have chosen rather than affliction. 22 Behold, God is exalted in his power. Who is a teacher like him? 23 Who has prescribed his way for him? Or who can say, ‘You have committed unrighteousness?’ 24 “Remember that you magnify his work, Whereof men have sung. 25 All men have looked thereon. Man sees it afar off. 26 Behold, God is great, and we don’t know him. The number of his years is unsearchable. 27 For he draws up the drops of water, Which distill in rain from his vapor, 28 Which the skies pour down And drop on man abundantly. 29 Yes, can any understand the spreading of the clouds, And the thunderings of his pavilion? 30 Behold, he spreads his light around him. He covers the bottom of the sea. 31 For by these he judges the people. He gives food in abundance. 32 He covers his hands with the lightning, And commands it to strike the mark. 33 The noise of it tells about him, And the cattle also concerning the storm that comes up.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 4:1 – 12

4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, even as we obtained mercy, we don’t faint. 

2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by the manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 

3 Even if our Good News is veiled, it is veiled in those who perish; 

4 in whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the Good News of the glory of Messiah, who is the image of God, should not dawn on them. 

5 For we don’t preach ourselves, but Messiah Yeshua as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Yeshua’ sake. 

6 Seeing it is God who said, “Light will shine out of darkness,” who shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Yeshua the Messiah. 

7 But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves. 

8 We are pressed on every side, yet not crushed; perplexed, yet not to despair; 

9pursued, yet not forsaken; struck down, yet not destroyed; 

10 always carrying in the body the putting to death of the Lord Yeshua, that the life of Yeshua may also be revealed in our body. 

11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Yeshua’ sake, that the life also of Yeshua may be revealed in our mortal flesh. 

12 So then death works in us, but life in you.

JUNE 9

PSALMS: 9, 39, 69, 99, 129

PROVERBS: 9

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 31:1 – 33:33

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 3:1 – 18

PSALMS: 9

1 I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart.

I will tell of all your marvelous works. 

2 I will be glad and rejoice in you.

I will sing praise to your name, O Elyon. 

3 When my enemies turn back,

They stumble and perish in your presence. 

4 For you have maintained my right and my cause.

You sit on the throne judging righteously. 

5 You have rebuked the nations.

You have destroyed the wicked.

You have blotted out their name forever and ever. 

6 The enemy is overtaken by endless ruin.

The very memory of the cities which you have overthrown has perished. 

7 But the LORD reigns forever.

He has prepared his throne for judgment. 

8 He will judge the world in righteousness.

He will administer judgment to the peoples in uprightness. 

9 The LORD will also be a high tower for the oppressed;

A high tower in times of trouble. 

10 Those who know your name will put their trust in you,

For you, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you. 

11 Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Tziyon,

And declare among the people what he has done.

12 For he who avenges blood remembers them.

He doesn’t forget the cry of the afflicted. 

13 Have mercy on me, LORD.

See my affliction by those who hate me,

And lift me up from the gates of death; 

14 That I may show forth all your praise.

In the gates of the daughter of Tziyon I will rejoice in your salvation. 

15 The nations have sunk down in the pit that they made;

In the net which they hid, their own foot is taken. 

16 The LORD has made himself known.

He has executed judgment.

The wicked is snared by the work of his own hands.

Meditation.

Selah. 

17  The wicked shall be turned back to She’ol,

Even all the nations that forget God. 

18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten,

Nor the hope of the poor perish forever. 

19 Arise, LORD! Don’t let man prevail.

Let the nations be judged in your sight. 

20 Put them in fear, LORD.

Let the nations know that they are only men.

Selah.

PSALMS: 39

1 I said, “I will watch my ways, so that I don’t sin with my tongue.

I will keep my mouth with a bridle while the wicked is before me.” 

2 I was mute with silence.

I held my shalom, even from good.

My sorrow was stirred. 

3 My heart was hot within me.

While I meditated, the fire burned:

I spoke with my tongue: 

4 “LORD, make me to know my end,

What is the measure of my days.

Let me know how frail I am. 

5 Behold, you have made my days hand breadths.

My lifetime is as nothing before you.

Surely every man stands as a breath.”

Selah. 

6“Surely every man walks like a shadow.

Surely they busy themselves in vain.

He heaps up, and doesn’t know who shall gather. 

7 Now, Lord, what do I wait for?

My hope is in you. 

8 Deliver me from all my transgressions.

Don’t make me the reproach of the foolish. 

9 I was mute, I didn’t open my mouth,

Because you did it. 

10 Remove your scourge away from me.

I am overcome by the blow of your hand. 

11 When you rebuke and correct man for iniquity,

You consume his wealth like a moth.

Surely every man is but a breath.”

Selah. 

12 “Hear my prayer, LORD,

and give ear to my cry.

Don’t be silent at my tears.

For I am a stranger with you,

A sojourner, as all my fathers were. 

13 Oh spare me, that I may recover strength,

Before I go away, and be no more.”

PSALMS: 69

1 Save me, God,

For the waters have come up to my neck! 

2 I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold.

I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. 

3 I am weary with my crying.

My throat is dry.

My eyes fail, looking for my God. 

4 Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head.

Those who want to cut me off, being my enemies wrongfully, are mighty.

I have to restore what I didn’t take away. 

5 God, you know my foolishness.

My sins aren’t hidden from you. 

6 Don’t let those who wait for you be put to shame through me,

Lord GOD of Hosts.

Don’t let those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me,

God of Yisra’el. 

7 Because for your sake, I have borne reproach.

Shame has covered my face. 

8 I have become a stranger to my brothers,

An alien to my mother’s children. 

9 For the zeal of your house consumes me.

The reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me. 

10 When I wept and I fasted,

That was to my reproach. 

11 When I made sackcloth my clothing,

I became a byword to them. 

12 Those who sit in the gate talk about me.

I am the song of the drunkards. 

13 But as for me, my prayer is to you, LORD, in an acceptable time.

God, in the abundance of your loving kindness,

answer me in the truth of your salvation. 

14 Deliver me out of the mire, and don’t let me sink.

Let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters.

15 Don’t let the flood waters overwhelm me,

Neither let the deep swallow me up.

Don’t let the pit shut its mouth on me. 

16 Answer me, LORD, for your loving kindness is good.

According to the multitude of your tender mercies, turn to me. 

17 Don’t hide your face from your servant, For I am in distress.

Answer me speedily! 

18 Draw near to my soul, and redeem it.

Ransom me because of my enemies. 

19 You know my reproach, my shame, and my dishonor.

My adversaries are all before you. 

20 Reproach has broken my heart, and I am full of heaviness.

I looked for some to take pity, but there was none;

For comforters, but I found none. 

21 They also gave me gall for my food.

In my thirst, they gave me vinegar to drink.

22 Let their table before them become a snare.

May it become a retribution and a trap. 

23 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they can’t see.

Make their loins continually to shake. 

24 Pour out your indignation on them.

Let the fierceness of your anger overtake them.

25 Let their habitation be desolate.

Let no one dwell in their tents.

26 For they persecute him whom you have wounded.

They tell of the sorrow of those whom you have hurt. 

27 Charge them with crime upon crime.

Don’t let them come into your righteousness. 

28 Let them be blotted out of the book of life,

And not be written with the righteous. 

29 But I am in pain and distress.

Let your yeshu`ah, God, protect me. 

30 I will praise the name of God with a song,

And will magnify him with thanksgiving. 

31 It will please the LORD better than an ox,

Or a bull that has horns and hoofs. 

32 The humble have seen it, and are glad.

You who seek after God, let your heart live. 

33 For the LORD hears the needy,

And doesn’t despise his captive people. 

34 Let heaven and eretz praise him;

The seas, and everything that moves therein! 

35 For God will save Tziyon, and build the cities of Yehudah.

They shall settle there, and own it. 

36 The children also of his servants shall inherit it.

Those who love his name shall dwell therein.

PSALMS: 99

1 The LORD reigns!

Let the peoples tremble.

He sits enthroned among the Keruvim.

Let the eretz be moved. 

2 The LORD is great in Tziyon.

He is high above all the peoples. 

3 Let them praise your great and awesome name.

He is Holy! 

4 The King’s strength also loves justice.

You do establish equity.

You execute justice and righteousness in Ya`akov. 

5 Exalt the LORD our God.

Worship at his footstool.

He is Holy! 

6 Moshe and Aharon were among his Kohanim,

Shemu’el among those who call on his name;

They called on the LORD, and he answered them. 

7 He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud.

They kept his testimonies,

The statute that he gave them. 

8 You answered them, LORD our God.

You are a God who forgave them,

Although you took vengeance for their doings. 

9 Exalt the LORD, our God.

Worship at his holy hill,

For the LORD, our God, is holy!

PSALMS: 129

1 Many times have they afflicted me from my youth up.

Let Yisra’el now say, 

2 Many times have they afflicted me from my youth up,

Yet they have not prevailed against me. 

3 The plowers plowed on my back.

They made their furrows long. 

4 The LORD is righteous.

He has cut apart the cords of the wicked. 

5 Let them be put to shame and turned backward,

All those who hate Tziyon. 

6 Let them be as the grass on the housetops,

Which withers before it grows up; 

7 With which the reaper doesn’t fill his hand,

Nor he who binds sheaves, his bosom. 

8 Neither do those who go by say,

“The blessing of the LORD be on you.

We bless you in the name of the LORD.”

PROVERBS: 9

1 Wisdom has built her house.

She has carved out her seven pillars.

2 She has prepared her meat.

She has mixed her wine.

She has also set her table. 

3 She has sent out her maidens.

She cries from the highest places of the city: 

4 “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!”

As for him who is void of understanding, she says to him, 

5 “Come, eat some of my bread,

Drink some of the wine which I have mixed! 

6 Leave your simple ways, and live.

Walk in the way of understanding.” 

7 He who corrects a mocker invites insult.

He who reproves a wicked man invites abuse. 

8 Don’t reprove a scoffer, lest he hate you.

Reprove a wise man, and he will love you. 

9 Instruct a wise man, and he will be still wiser.

Teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning. 

10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.

The knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. 

11 For by me your days will be multiplied.

The years of your life will be increased. 

12 If you are wise, you are wise for yourself.

If you mock, you alone will bear it. 

13 The foolish woman is loud,

Undisciplined, and knows nothing. 

14 She sits at the door of her house,

On a seat in the high places of the city, 

15 To call to those who pass by,

Who go straight on their ways, 

16 “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here.”

As for him who is void of understanding, she says to him, 

17 “Stolen water is sweet.

Food eaten in secret is pleasant.” 

18 But he doesn’t know that the dead are there,

That her guests are in the depths of She’ol.

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 31:1 – 33:33

31:1 “I made a covenant with my eyes, How then should I look lustfully at a young woman? 2 For what is the portion from God above, And the heritage from Shaddai on high? 3 Is it not calamity to the unrighteous, And disaster to the workers of iniquity? 4 Doesn’t he see my ways, And number all my steps? 5 “If I have walked with falsehood, And my foot has hurried to deceit 6 (Let me be weighed in an even balance, That God may know my integrity); 7 If my step has turned out of the way, If my heart walked after my eyes, If any defilement has stuck to my hands, 8 Then let me sow, and let another eat; Yes, let the produce of my field be rooted out. 9 “If my heart has been enticed to a woman, And I have laid wait at my neighbor’s door; 10 Then let my wife grind for another, And let others sleep with her. 

11 For that would be a heinous crime; Yes, it would be an iniquity to be punished by the judges: 12 For it is a fire that consumes to destruction, And would root out all my increase. 13 “If I have despised the cause of my man-servant Or of my maid-servant, When they contended with me; 14 What then shall I do when God rises up? When he visits, what shall I answer him? 15 Didn’t he who made me in the womb make him? Didn’t one fashion us in the womb? 16 “If I have withheld the poor from their desire, Or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail,17 Or have eaten my morsel alone, And the fatherless has not eaten of it 18 (No, from my youth he grew up with me as with a father, Her have I guided from my mother’s womb); 19 If I have seen any perish for want of clothing, Or that the needy had no covering; 20 If his heart hasn’t blessed me, If he hasn’t been warmed with my sheep’s fleece; 21 If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless, Because I saw my help in the gate: 22 Then let my shoulder fall from the shoulder-blade, And my arm be broken from the bone. 23 For calamity from God is a terror to me, By reason of his majesty I can do nothing. 24 “If I have made gold my hope, And have said to the fine gold, ‘You are my confidence;’ 25 If I have rejoiced because my wealth was great, And because my hand had gotten much; 26 If I have seen the sun when it shined, Or the moon moving in splendor, 27 And my heart has been secretly enticed, My hand threw a kiss from my mouth: 28 This also would be an iniquity to be punished by the judges; For I should have denied the God who is above. 29 “If I have rejoiced at the destruction of him who hated me, Or lifted up myself when evil found him; 30 (Yes, I have not allowed my mouth to sin By asking his life with a curse); 31 If the men of my tent have not said, ‘Who can find one who has not been filled with his meat?’ 32 (The sojourner has not lodged in the street; But I have opened my doors to the traveler); 33 If like Adam I have covered my transgressions, By hiding my iniquity in my heart, 34 Because I feared the great multitude, And the contempt of families terrified me, So that I kept silence, and didn’t go out of the door– 35 Oh that I had one to hear me! (Behold, here is my signature, let Shaddai answer me); Let the accuser write my indictment! 36 Surely I would carry it on my shoulder; And I would bind it to me as a crown. 37 I would declare to him the number of my steps. As a prince would I go near to him. 38 If my land cries out against me, And the furrows of it weep together; 39 If I have eaten the fruits of it without money, Or have caused the owners of it to lose their life: 40 Let briars grow instead of wheat, And stinkweed instead of barley.” The words of Iyov are ended.

32:1 So these three men ceased to answer Iyov, because he was righteous in his own eyes. 2 Then the wrath of Elihu, the son of Barakh’el, the Buzite, of the family of Ram, was kindled against Iyov. His wrath was kindled, because he justified himself rather than God. 3 Also his wrath was kindled against his three friends, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Iyov. 4 Now Elihu had waited to speak to Iyov, because they were elder than he. 5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, his wrath was kindled. 6 Elihu the son of Barakh’el the Buzite answered, “I am young, and you are very old; Therefore I held back, and didn’t dare show you my opinion. 7 I said, ‘Days should speak, And multitude of years should teach wisdom.’ 8 But there is a spirit in man, And the breath of Shaddai gives them understanding. 9 It is not the great who are wise, Nor the aged who understand justice. 10 Therefore I said, ‘Listen to me; I also will show my opinion.’ 11 “Behold, I waited for your words, And I listened for your reasoning, While you searched out what to say. 12 Yes, I gave you my full attention, But there was no one who convinced Iyov, Or who answered his words, among you. 13 Beware lest you say, ‘We have found wisdom, God may refute him, not man:’ 14 For he has not directed his words against me; Neither will I answer him with your speeches. 15 “They are amazed. They answer no more. They don’t have a word to say. 16 Shall I wait, because they don’t speak, Because they stand still, and answer no more? 17 I also will answer my part, And I also will show my opinion. 18 For I am full of words. The spirit within me constrains me. 19 Behold, my breast is as wine which has no vent; Like new wineskins it is ready to burst. 20 I will speak, that I may be refreshed. I will open my lips and answer. 21 Please don’t let me respect any man’s person, Neither will I give flattering titles to any man. 22 For I don’t know how to give flattering titles; Or else my Maker would soon take me away.

33:1 “However, Iyov, Please hear my speech, And listen to all my words. 2 See now, I have opened my mouth. My tongue has spoken in my mouth. 3 My words shall utter the uprightness of my heart; That which my lips know they shall speak sincerely. 4 The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of Shaddai gives me life. 5 If you can, answer me; Set your words in order before me, and stand forth. 6 Behold, I am toward God even as you are: I am also formed out of the clay. 7 Behold, my terror shall not make you afraid, Neither shall my pressure be heavy on you. 8 “Surely you have spoken in my hearing, I have heard the voice of your words, saying, 9 ‘I am clean, without disobedience. I am innocent, neither is there iniquity in me: 10 Behold, he finds occasions against me, He counts me for his enemy: 11 He puts my feet in the stocks, He marks all my paths.’ 12 “Behold, I will answer you. In this you are not just; For God is greater than man. 13 Why do you strive against him, Because he doesn’t give account of any of his matters? 14 For God speaks once, Yes twice, though man pays no attention. 15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falls on men, In slumbering on the bed; 16 Then he opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction, 17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose, And hide pride from man. 18 He keeps back his soul from the pit, And his life from perishing by the sword. 19 He is chastened also with pain on his bed, With continual strife in his bones; 20 So that his life abhors bread, And his soul dainty food. 21 His flesh is so consumed away, that it can’t be seen; His bones that were not seen stick out. 22 Yes, his soul draws near to the pit, And his life to the destroyers. 23 “If there is beside him an angel, An interpreter, one among a thousand, To show to man what is right for him; 24 Then God is gracious to him, and says, ‘Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom.’ 25 His flesh shall be fresher than a child’s; He returns to the days of his youth. 26 He prays to God, and he is favorable to him, So that he sees his face with joy: He restores to man his righteousness. 27 He sings before men, and says, ‘I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, And it didn’t profit me. 28 He has redeemed my soul from going into the pit, My life shall see the light.’ 29 “Behold, God works all these things, Twice, yes three times, with a man, 30 To bring back his soul from the pit, That he may be enlightened with the light of the living. 31 Mark well, Iyov, and listen to me: Hold your shalom, and I will speak. 32 If you have anything to say, answer me: Speak, for I desire to justify you. 33 If not, listen to me: Hold your shalom, and I will teach you wisdom.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 3:1 – 18

3:1 Are we beginning again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as do some, letters of commendation to you or from you? 

2 You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; 

3 being revealed that you are a letter of Messiah, ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh. 

4 Such confidence we have through Messiah toward God; 

5 not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to account anything as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God; 

6 who also made us sufficient as servants of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 

7 But if the service of death, written engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the children of Yisra’el could not look steadfastly on the face of Moshe for the glory of his face; which was passing away: 

8 won’t service of the Spirit be with much more glory? 

9 For if the service of condemnation has glory, the service of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. 

10 For most assuredly that which has been made glorious has not been made glorious in this respect, by reason of the glory that surpasses. 

11 For if that which passes away was with glory, much more that which remains is in glory. 

12 Having therefore such a hope, we use great boldness of speech, 

13 and not as Moshe, who put a veil on his face, that the children of Yisra’el wouldn’t look steadfastly on the end of that which was passing away. 

14 But their minds were hardened, for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains, because in Messiah it passes away. 

15 But to this day, when Moshe is read, a veil lies on their heart. 

16 But whenever one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 

18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord, the Spirit.

PSALMS: 8, 38, 68, 98, 128

PROVERBS: 8

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 28:1 – 30:31

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 2:12 – 17

PSALMS: 8

1 LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the eretz,

Who has set your glory above the heavens! 

2 From the lips of babes and infants you have established strength,

Because of your adversaries, that you might silence the enemy and the avenger. 

3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,

The moon and the stars, which you have ordained; 

4 What is man, that you think of him?

The son of man, that you care for him? 

5 For you have made him a little lower than God,

And crowned him with glory and honor. 

6 You make him ruler over the works of your hands.

You have put all things under his feet: 

7 All sheep and oxen,

Yes, and the animals of the field, 

8 The birds of the sky, the fish of the sea,

And whatever passes through the paths of the seas. 

9 LORD, our Lord,

How majestic is your name in all the eretz!

PSALMS: 38

1 LORD, don’t rebuke me in your wrath,

Neither chasten me in your hot displeasure. 

2 For your arrows have pierced me,

Your hand presses hard on me. 

3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of your indignation,

Neither is there any health in my bones because of my sin. 

4 For my iniquities have gone over my head.

As a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me. 

5 My wounds are loathsome and corrupt,

Because of my foolishness. 

6 I am pained and bowed down greatly.

I go mourning all day long. 

7 For my loins are filled with burning.

There is no soundness in my flesh. 

8 I am faint and severely bruised.

I have groaned by reason of the anguish of my heart. 

9 Lord, all my desire is before you.

My groaning is not hidden from you. 

10 My heart throbs. My strength fails me.

As for the light of my eyes, it also is gone from me. 

11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my plague.

My kinsmen stand afar off. 

12 They also who seek after my life lay snares.

Those who seek my hurt speak mischievous things,

And meditate deceits all day long. 

13 But I, as a deaf man, don’t hear.

I am as a mute man who doesn’t open his mouth. 

14 Yes, I am as a man who doesn’t hear,

In whose mouth are no reproofs. 

15 For in you, LORD, do I hope.

You will answer, Lord my God. 

16 For I said, “Don’t let them gloat over me,

Or exalt themselves over me when my foot slips.” 

17  For I am ready to fall.

My pain is continually before me. 

18 For I will declare my iniquity.

I will be sorry for my sin. 

19 But my enemies are vigorous and many.

Those who hate me without reason are numerous. 

20 They who also render evil for good are adversaries to me,

Because I follow what is good. 

21 Don’t forsake me, LORD.

My God, don’t be far from me.

22 Hurry to help me,

Lord, my salvation.

PSALMS: 68

1 Let God arise!

Let his enemies be scattered!

Let them who hate him also flee before him. 

2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away.

As wax melts before the fire,

So let the wicked perish at the presence of God. 

3 But let the righteous be glad.

Let them rejoice before God.

Yes, let them rejoice with gladness. 

4 Sing to God! Sing praises to his name!

Extol him who rides on the clouds — To the LORD, his name!

Rejoice before him. 

5 A father of the fatherless, and a defender of the widows,

Is God in his holy habitation.

6 God sets the lonely in families.

He brings out the prisoners with singing,

But the rebellious dwell in a sun-scorched land. 

7 God, when you went forth before your people,

When you marched through the wilderness…

Selah. 

8 The eretz trembled.

The sky also poured down rain at the presence of the God of Sinai —

At the presence of God, the God of Yisra’el. 

9 You, God, sent a plentiful rain.

You confirmed your inheritance, when it was weary. 

10 Your congregation lived therein.

You, God, prepared your goodness for the poor. 

11 The Lord announced the word.

The ones who proclaim it are a great company. 

12 “Kings of armies flee! They flee!”

She who waits at home divides the spoil, 

13 While you sleep among the campfires,

The wings of a dove sheathed with silver,

Her feathers with shining gold. 

14 When Shaddai scattered kings in her,

It snowed on Tzalmon. 

15 The mountains of Bashan are majestic mountains.

The mountains of Bashan are rugged. 

16 Why do you look in envy, you rugged mountains,

At the mountain where God chooses to reign?

Yes, the LORD will dwell there forever. 

17 The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands.

The Lord is among them, from Sinai, into the sanctuary. 

18 You have ascended on high.

You have led away captives.

You have received gifts among men,

Yes, among the rebellious also,

that the LORD God might dwell there. 

19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burdens,

Even the God who is our salvation. Selah. 

20 God is to us a God of deliverance.

To the LORD, the Lord,

belongs escape from death. 

21 But God will strike through the head of his enemies,

The hairy scalp of such a one as still continues in his guiltiness. 

22 The Lord said, “I will bring you again from Bashan,

I will bring you again from the depths of the sea; 

23 That you may crush them, dipping your foot in blood,

That the tongues of your dogs may have their portion from your enemies.” 

24 They have seen your goings, God,

Even the goings of my God, my King, into the sanctuary. 

25 The singers went before, the minstrels followed after,

In the midst of the ladies playing with timbrels, 

26“Bless God in the congregations,

Even the Lord in the assembly of Yisra’el!” 

27 There is little Binyamin, their ruler,

The princes of Yehudah, their council,

The princes of Zevulun, and the princes of Naftali. 

28 Your God has commanded your strength.

Strengthen, God, that which you have done for us. 

29 Because of your temple at Yerushalayim,

Kings shall bring presents to you. 

30 Rebuke the wild animal of the reeds,

The multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the peoples.

Being humbled, may it bring bars of silver.

Scatter the nations that delight in war. 

31 Princes shall come out of Mitzrayim.

Kush shall hurry to stretch out her hands to God. 

32 Sing to God, you kingdoms of the eretz!

Sing praises to the Lord!

Selah. 

33 To him who rides on the heaven of heavens, which are of old;

Behold, he utters his voice, a mighty voice. 

34 Ascribe strength to God!

His excellency is over Yisra’el,

His strength is in the skies. 

35 You are awesome, God, in your sanctuaries.

The God of Yisra’el gives strength and power to his people.

Praise be to God!

PSALMS: 98

1 Sing to the LORD a new song,

For he has done marvelous things!

His right hand, and his holy arm,

have worked salvation for him. 

2 The LORD has made known his yeshu`ah.

He has openly shown his righteousness in the sight of the nations. 

3 He has remembered his loving kindness

and his faithfulness toward the house of Yisra’el.

All the ends of the eretz have seen the yeshu`ah of our God. 

4 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the eretz!

Burst out and sing for joy, yes, sing praises! 

5 Sing praises to the LORD with the harp,

With the harp and the voice of melody. 

6 With trumpets and sound of the ram’s horn.

Make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD. 

7  Let the sea roar with its fullness;

The world, and those who dwell therein. 

8 Let the rivers clap their hands.

Let the mountains sing for joy together. 

9 Let them sing before the LORD,

For he comes to judge the eretz.

He will judge the world with righteousness,

And the peoples with equity.

PSALMS: 128

1 Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD,

Who walks in his ways. 

2 For you will eat the labor of your hands.

You will be happy, and it will be well with you. 

3 Your wife will be as a fruitful vine,

In the innermost parts of your house;

Your children like olive plants, Around your table. 

4 Behold, thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD. 

5 May the LORD bless you out of Tziyon,

And may you see the good of Yerushalayim all the days of your life. 

6 Yes, may you see your children’s children.

Shalom be upon Yisra’el.

PROVERBS: 8

1 Doesn’t wisdom cry out?

Doesn’t understanding raise her voice?

2 On the top of high places by the way,

Where the paths meet, she stands. 

3 Beside the gates, at the entry of the city,

At the entry doors, she cries aloud: 

4 “To you men, I call!

I send my voice to the sons of mankind. 

5 You simple, understand prudence.

You fools, be of an understanding heart. 

6 Hear, for I will speak excellent things.

The opening of my lips is for right things. 

7 For my mouth speaks truth.

Wickedness is an abomination to my lips. 

8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness.

There is nothing crooked or perverse in them. 

9 They are all plain to him who understands,

Right to those who find knowledge. 

10 Receive my instruction rather than silver;

Knowledge rather than choice gold. 

11 For wisdom is better than rubies.

All the things that may be desired can’t be compared to it. 

12 “I, wisdom, have made prudence my dwelling.

Find out knowledge and discretion. 

13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil.

I hate pride, arrogance, the evil way, and the perverse mouth. 

14 Counsel and sound knowledge are mine.

I have understanding and power. 

15 By me kings reign,

And princes decree justice. 

16 By me princes rule; Nobles,

and all the righteous rulers of the eretz. 

17 I love those who love me.

Those who seek me diligently will find me. 

18 With me are riches, honor,

Enduring wealth, and prosperity. 

19 My fruit is better than gold, yes, than fine gold;

My yield than choice silver. 

20 I walk in the way of righteousness,

In the midst of the paths of justice; 

21 That I may give wealth to those who love me.

I fill their treasuries.

22 “The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his work,

Before his deeds of old. 

23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning,

Before the eretz existed. 

24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth,
When there were no springs abounding with water. 

25 Before the mountains were settled in place,

Before the hills, I was brought forth; 

26 While as yet he had not made the eretz, nor the fields,

Nor the beginning of the dust of the world. 

27  When he established the heavens, I was there;

When he set a circle on the surface of the deep, 

28 When he established the clouds above,

When the springs of the deep became strong, 

29 When he gave to the sea its boundary,

That the waters should not violate his mitzvah,

When he marked out the foundations of the eretz; 

30 Then I was the craftsman by his side.

I was a delight day by day,

Always rejoicing before him, 

31 Rejoicing in his whole world.

My delight was with the sons of men. 

32 “Now therefore, my sons, listen to me,

For blessed are those who keep my ways. 

33 Hear instruction, and be wise, Don’t refuse it. 

34 Blessed is the man who hears me,

Watching daily at my gates,

Waiting at my door posts. 

35 For whoever finds me, finds life,

And will obtain favor from the LORD. 

36 But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul.

All those who hate me love death.”

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 28:1 – 30:31

28:1 “Surely there is a mine for silver, And a place for gold which they refine. 2 Iron is taken out of the eretz, And copper is smelted out of the ore. 3 Man sets an end to darkness, And searches out, to the furthest bound, The stones of obscurity and of thick darkness. 4 He breaks open a shaft away from where people live. They are forgotten by the foot. They hang far from men, they swing back and forth. 5 As for the eretz, out of it comes bread; Underneath it is turned up as it were by fire. 6 Sapphires come from its rocks. It has dust of gold. 7 That path no bird of prey knows, Neither has the falcon’s eye seen it. 8 The proud animals have not trodden it, Nor has the fierce lion passed by there. 9 He puts forth his hand on the flinty rock, And he overturns the mountains by the roots. 10 He cuts out channels among the rocks. His eye sees every precious thing. 11 He binds the streams that they don’t trickle; The thing that is hidden he brings forth to light. 12 “But where shall wisdom be found? Where is the place of understanding? 13 Man doesn’t know its price; Neither is it found in the land of the living. 14 The deep says, ‘It isn’t in me.’ The sea says, ‘It isn’t with me.’ 15 It can’t be gotten for gold, Neither shall silver be weighed for its price. 16 It can’t be valued with the gold of Ofir, With the precious shoham, or the sappir. 17 Gold and zekukeet can’t equal it, Neither shall it be exchanged for jewels of fine gold. 18 No mention shall be made of ra`mah or of gabeesh: Yes, the price of wisdom is above rubies. 19 The pitdah of Kush shall not equal it, Neither shall it be valued with pure gold. 20 Whence then comes wisdom? Where is the place of understanding? 21 Seeing it is hidden from the eyes of all living, And kept close from the birds of the sky. 22 Destruction and Death say, ‘We have heard a rumor of it with our ears.’ 23 “God understands its way, And he knows its place. 24 For he looks to the ends of the eretz, And sees under the whole sky. 25 He establishes the force of the wind; Yes, he measures out the waters by measure. 26 When he made a decree for the rain, And a way for the lightning of the thunder; 27 Then did he see it, and declare it. He established it, yes, and searched it out. 28 To man he said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom. To depart from evil is understanding.'”

29:1 Iyov again took up his parable, and said, 2 “Oh that I were as in the months of old, As in the days when God watched over me; 3 When his lamp shone on my head, And by his light I walked through darkness; 4 As I was in the ripeness of my days, When the friendship of God was in my tent; 5 When Shaddai was yet with me, And my children were around me; 6 When my steps were washed with butter, And the rock poured out streams of oil for me! 7 When I went forth to the city gate, When I prepared my seat in the street, 8 The young men saw me and hid themselves, The aged rose up and stood; 9 The princes refrained from talking, And laid their hand on their mouth; 10 The voice of the nobles was hushed, And their tongue stuck to the roof of their mouth. 11 For when the ear heard me, then it blessed me; And when the eye saw me, it commended me: 12 Because I delivered the poor who cried, And the fatherless also, who had none to help him. 13 The blessing of him who was ready to perish came on me, And I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy. 14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me. My justice was as a robe and a diadem. 15 I was eyes to the blind, And feet to the lame. 16 I was a father to the needy. The cause of him who I didn’t know, I searched out. 17 I broke the jaws of the unrighteous, And plucked the prey out of his teeth. 18 Then I said, ‘I shall die in my own house, I shall number my days as the sand. 19 My root is spread out to the waters, The dew lies all night on my branch; 20 My glory is fresh in me, My bow is renewed in my hand.’ 21 “Men listened to me, waited, And kept silence for my counsel. 22 After my words they didn’t speak again; My speech fell on them. 23 They waited for me as for the rain. Their mouths drank as with the spring rain. 24 I smiled on them when they had no confidence. They didn’t reject the light of my face. 25 I chose out their way, and sat as chief. I lived as a king in the army, As one who comforts the mourners.

30:1 “But now those who are younger than I, have me in derision, Whose fathers I would have disdained to put with my sheep dogs. 2 Of what use is the strength of their hands to me, Men in whom ripe age has perished? 3 They are gaunt from lack and famine. They gnaw the dry ground, in the gloom of waste and desolation. 4 They pluck mallukh by the bushes. The roots of the broom are their food. 5 They are driven forth from the midst of men; They cry after them as after a thief; 6 So that they dwell in frightful valleys, And in holes of the eretz and of the rocks. 7 Among the bushes they bray; And under the nettles they are gathered together. 8 They are children of fools, yes, children of base men. They were flogged out of the land. 9 “Now I have become their song. Yes, I am a byword to them. 10 They abhor me, they stand aloof from me, And don’t hesitate to spit in my face. 11 For he has loosed his cord, and afflicted me; And they have thrown off restraint before me. 12 On my right hand rise the rabble. They thrust aside my feet, They cast up against me their ways of destruction. 13 They mar my path, They set forward my calamity, Without anyone’s help. 14 As through a wide breach they come, In the midst of the ruin they roll themselves in. 15 Terrors are turned on me. They chase my honor as the wind. My welfare has passed away as a cloud. 16 “Now my soul is poured out within me. Days of affliction have taken hold on me. 17 In the night season my bones are pierced in me, And the pains that gnaw me take no rest. 18 By great force is my garment disfigured. It binds me about as the collar of my coat. 19 He has cast me into the mire. I have become like dust and ashes. 20 I cry to you, and you do not answer me. I stand up, and you gaze at me. 21 You have turned to be cruel to me. With the might of your hand you persecute me. 22 You lift me up to the wind, and drive me with it. You dissolve me in the storm. 23 For I know that you will bring me to death, To the house appointed for all living. 24 “However doesn’t one stretch out a hand in his fall? Or in his calamity therefore cry for help? 25 Didn’t I weep for him who was in trouble? Wasn’t my soul grieved for the needy? 26 When I looked for good, then evil came; When I waited for light, there came darkness. 27 My heart is troubled, and doesn’t rest. Days of affliction have come on me. 28 I go mourning without the sun. I stand up in the assembly, and cry for help. 29 I am a brother to jackals, And a companion to ostriches. 30 My skin grows black and peels from me. My bones are burned with heat. 31 Therefore is my harp turned to mourning, And my pipe into the voice of those who weep.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 2:12 – 17

2:12 Now when I came to Troas for the Good News of Messiah, and when a door was opened to me in the Lord, 

13 I had no relief for my spirit, because I didn’t find Titus, my brother, but taking my leave of them, I went forth into Macedonia. 

14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Messiah, and reveals through us the sweet aroma of his knowledge in every place. 

15 For we are a sweet aroma of Messiah to God, in those who are saved, and in those who perish; 

16 to the one a stench from death to death; to the other a sweet aroma from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 

17 For we are not as so many, peddling the word of God. But as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God, we speak in Messiah.

PSALMS: 7, 37, 67, 97, 127

PROVERBS: 7

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 23:1 – 27:23

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 1:12 – 2:11

PSALMS: 7

1 LORD, my God, I take refuge in you.

Save me from all those who pursue me, and deliver me, 

2 Lest they tear apart my soul like a lion,

Rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver. 

3 LORD, my God, if I have done this,

If there is iniquity in my hands, 

4 If I have rewarded evil to him who was at shalom with me

(Yes, I have delivered him who without cause was my adversary), 

5 Let the enemy pursue my soul, and overtake it;

Yes, let him tread my life down to the eretz,

And lay my glory in the dust. Selah. 

6 Arise, LORD, in your anger.

Lift up yourself against the rage of my adversaries.

Awake for me. You have commanded judgment. 

7 Let the congregation of the peoples surround you.

Rule over them on high. 

8 The LORD administers judgment to the peoples.

Judge me, LORD, according to my righteousness,

And to my integrity that is in me. 

9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end,

But establish the righteous;

Their minds and hearts are searched by the righteous God. 

10 My shield is with God,

Who saves the upright in heart. 

11 God is a righteous judge,

Yes, a God who has indignation every day. 

12 If a man doesn’t relent, he will sharpen his sword;

He has bent and strung his bow. 

13 He has also prepared for himself the instruments of death.

He makes ready his flaming arrows. 

14 Behold, he travails with iniquity;

Yes, he has conceived mischief and brought forth falsehood. 

15 He has dug a hole,

And has fallen into the pit which he made. 

16 The trouble he causes shall return to his own head.

His violence shall come down on the crown of his own head. 

17 I will give thanks to the LORD according to his righteousness,

And will sing praise to the name of the LORD Elyon.

PSALMS: 37

1 Don’t fret because of evil-doers,

Neither be envious against those who work unrighteousness. 

2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,

And wither like the green herb. 

3 Trust in the LORD, and do good.

Dwell in the land, and enjoy safe pasture. 

4 Also delight yourself in the LORD,

And he will give you the desires of your heart. 

5 Commit your way to the LORD.

Trust also in him, and he will do this: 

6 He will make your righteousness go forth as the light,

And your justice as the noon day sun. 

7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him.

Don’t fret because of him who prospers in his way,

Because of the man who makes wicked plots happen. 

8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath.

Don’t fret, it leads only to evildoing. 

9 For evildoers shall be cut off,

But those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land. 

10 For yet a little while, and the wicked will be no more.

Yes, though you look for his place, he isn’t there. 

11 But the humble shall inherit the land,

And shall delight themselves in the abundance of shalom. 

12 The wicked plots against the just,

And gnashes at him with his teeth. 

13 The Lord will laugh at him,

For he sees that his day is coming. 

14 The wicked have drawn out the sword,

and have bent their bow,

To cast down the poor and needy,

To kill those who are upright in the way. 

15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart.

Their bows shall be broken. 

16 Better is a little that the righteous has,

Than the abundance of many wicked. 

17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,

But the LORD upholds the righteous. 

18 The LORD knows the days of the perfect.

Their inheritance shall be forever. 

19 They shall not be put to shame in the time of evil.

In the days of famine they shall be satisfied. 

20 But the wicked shall perish.

The enemies of the LORD shall be like the beauty of the fields.

They will vanish — Vanish like smoke. 

21 The wicked borrow, and don’t pay back,

But the righteous give generously.

22 For such as are blessed by him shall inherit the land.

Those who are cursed by him shall be cut off. 

23 A man’s goings are established by the LORD.

He delights in his way. 

24 Though he stumble, he shall not fall,

For the LORD holds him up with his hand.

25 I have been young, and now am old,

Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,

Nor his children begging for bread. 

26 All day long he deals graciously, and lends.

His seed is blessed. 

27 Depart from evil, and do good;

Live securely forever. 

28 For the LORD loves justice,

And doesn’t forsake his holy ones.

They are preserved forever,

But the children of the wicked shall be cut off. 

29 The righteous shall inherit the land,

And live in it forever. 

30 The mouth of the righteous talks of wisdom.

His tongue speaks justice. 

31 The law of his God is in his heart.

None of his steps shall slide. 

32 The wicked watches the righteous,

And seeks to kill him. 

33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand,

Nor condemn him when he is judged.

34 Wait for the LORD, and keep his way,

And he will exalt you to inherit the land.

When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it. 

35 I have seen the wicked in great power,

Spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil. 

36 But he passed away, and, behold, he was not.

Yes, I sought him, but he could not be found. 

37 Mark the perfect man, and see the upright,

For there is a future for the man of shalom. 

38 As for transgressors, they shall be destroyed together.

The future of the wicked shall be cut off. 

39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD.

He is their stronghold in the time of trouble. 

40 The LORD helps them, and rescues them.

He rescues them from the wicked, and saves them,

Because they have taken refuge in him.

PSALMS: 67

1 May God be merciful to us, bless us,

And cause his face to shine on us. Selah. 

2 That your way may be known on eretz,

And your yeshu`ah among all nations, 

3 Let the peoples praise you, God.

Let all the peoples praise you. 

4 Oh let the nations be glad and sing for joy,

For you will judge the peoples with equity,

And govern the nations on eretz.

Selah. 

5 Let the peoples praise you, God.

Let all the peoples praise you. 

6 The eretz has yielded its increase.

God, even our own God, will bless us. 

7 God will bless us.

All the ends of the eretz shall fear him.

PSALMS: 97

1 The LORD reigns!

Let the eretz rejoice.

Let the multitude of islands be glad. 

2 Clouds and darkness are around him.

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. 

3 A fire goes before him,

And burns up his adversaries on every side. 

4 His lightning lights up the world;

The eretz sees, and trembles. 

5 The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the LORD,

At the presence of the Lord of the whole eretz. 

6 The heavens declare his righteousness.

All the peoples have seen his glory. 

7 Let all them be put to shame who serve engraved images,

Who boast in their idols.

Worship him, all you gods! 

8 Tziyon heard and was glad.

The daughters of Yehudah rejoiced,

Because of your judgments, LORD.

9 For you, LORD, are most high above all the eretz.

You are exalted far above all gods. 

10 You who love the LORD, hate evil.

He preserves the souls of his holy ones.

He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. 

11 Light is sown for the righteous,

And gladness for the upright in heart. 

12 Be glad in the LORD, you righteous people!

Give thanks to his holy Name.

PSALMS: 127

1 Unless the LORD builds the house,

They labor in vain who build it.

Unless the LORD watches over the city,

The watchman guards it in vain. 

2 It is vain for you to rise up early,

To stay up late, Eating the bread of toil;

For he gives sleep to his loved ones. 

3 Behold, children are a heritage of the LORD.

The fruit of the womb is his reward. 

4 As arrows in the hand of a mighty man,

So are the children of youth. 

5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them.

They won’t be put to shame when they speak with their enemies in the gate.

PROVERBS: 7

1 My son, keep my words.

Lay up my mitzvot within you. 

2 Keep my mitzvot and live;

Guard my teaching as the apple of your eye. 

3 Bind them on your fingers.

Write them on the tablet of your heart. 

4 Tell wisdom, “You are my sister.”

Call understanding your relative, 

5 That they may keep you from the strange woman,

From the foreigner who flatters with her words. 

6 For at the window of my house,

I looked forth through my lattice. 

7 I saw among the simple ones.

I discerned among the youths a young man void of understanding, 

8Passing through the street near her corner,

He went the way to her house, 

9 In the twilight, in the evening of the day,

In the middle of the night and in the darkness. 

10 Behold, there a woman met him with the attire of a prostitute,

And with crafty intent. 

11 She is loud and defiant.

Her feet don’t stay in her house. 

12 Now she is in the streets, now in the squares,

And lurking at every corner. 

13 So she caught him, and kissed him.

With an impudent face she said to him:

14 “Sacrifices of peace-offerings are with me.

This day I have paid my vows. 

15 Therefore I came out to meet you,

To diligently seek your face, And I have found you. 

16 I have spread my couch with carpets of tapestry,

With striped cloths of the yarn of Mitzrayim. 

17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh,

aloes, and cinnamon. 

18 Come, let’s take our fill of loving until the morning.

Let’s solace ourselves with loving. 

19 For my husband isn’t at home.

He has gone on a long journey. 

20 He has taken a bag of money with him.

He will come home at the full moon.” 

21 With persuasive words, she led him astray.

With the flattering of her lips, she seduced him. 

22 He followed her immediately,

As an ox goes to the slaughter,

As a fool stepping into a noose. 

23 Until an arrow strikes through his liver,

As a bird hurries to the snare,

And doesn’t know that it will cost his life.

24 Now therefore, sons, listen to me.

Pay attention to the words of my mouth. 

25 Don’t let your heart turn to her ways.

Don’t go astray in her paths, 

26 For she has thrown down many wounded.

Yes, all her slain are a mighty host. 

27 Her house is the way to She’ol,

Going down to the chambers of death.

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 23:1 – 27:23

23:1 Then Iyov answered, 2 “Even today is my complaint rebellious. His hand is heavy in spite of my groaning. 3 Oh that I knew where I might find him! That I might come even to his seat! 4 I would set my cause in order before him, And fill my mouth with arguments 5 I would know the words which he would answer me, And understand what he would tell me. 6 Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? No, but he would listen to me. 7 There the upright might reason with him, So I should be delivered forever from my judge. 8 “If I go east, he is not there; If west, I can’t find him; 9 He works to the north, but I can’t see him; He turns south, but I can’t catch a glimpse of him. 10 But he knows the way that I take. When he has tried me, I shall come forth like gold. 11 My foot has held fast to his steps. His way have I kept, and not turned aside. 12 I haven’t gone back from the mitzvah of his lips. I have treasured up the words of his mouth more than my necessary food. 13 But he stands alone, and who can oppose him? What his soul desires, even that he does. 14 For he performs that which is appointed for me. Many such things are with him 15 Therefore I am terrified at his presence. When I consider, I am afraid of him. 16 For God has made my heart faint. The Almighty has terrified me.17 Because I was not cut off before the darkness, Neither did he cover the thick darkness from my face.

24:1 “Why aren’t times laid up by Shaddai? Why don’t those who know him see his days? 2 There are people who remove the landmarks. They violently take away flocks, and feed them. 3 They drive away the donkey of the fatherless, And they take the widow’s ox for a pledge. 4 They turn the needy out of the way. The poor of the eretz all hide themselves. 5 Behold, as wild donkeys in the desert, They go forth to their work, seeking diligently for food; The wilderness yields them bread for their children. 6 They cut their provender in the field. They glean the vineyard of the wicked. 7 They lie all night naked without clothing, And have no covering in the cold. 8 They are wet with the showers of the mountains, And embrace the rock for lack of a shelter. 9 There are those who pluck the fatherless from the breast, And take a pledge of the poor, 10 So that they go around naked without clothing. Being hungry, they carry the sheaves. 11 They make oil within the walls of these men. They tread wine presses, and suffer thirst. 12 From out of the populous city, men groan. The soul of the wounded cries out, Yet God doesn’t regard the folly. 13 “These are of those who rebel against the light; They don’t know the ways of it, Nor abide in the paths of it. 14 The murderer rises with the light. He kills the poor and needy. In the night he is like a thief. 15 The eye also of the adulterer waits for the twilight, Saying, ‘No eye shall see me.’ He disguises his face. 16 In the dark they dig through houses. They shut themselves up in the daytime. They don’t know the light. 17 For the morning is to all of them like thick darkness, For they know the terrors of the thick darkness. 18 “They are foam on the surface of the waters. Their portion is cursed in the eretz: They don’t turn into the way of the vineyards. 19 Drought and heat consume the snow waters; So does She’ol those who have sinned. 20 The womb shall forget him. The worm shall feed sweetly on him. He shall be no more remembered. Unrighteousness shall be broken as a tree. 21 He devours the barren who don’t bear. He shows no kindness to the widow. 22 Yet God preserves the mighty by his power. He rises up who has no assurance of life. 23 God gives them security, and they rest in it. His eyes are on their ways. 24 They are exalted; yet a little while, and they are gone. Yes, they are brought low, they are taken out of the way as all others, And are cut off as the tops of the ears of grain. 25 If it isn’t so now, who will prove me a liar, And make my speech worth nothing?”

25:1 Then Bildad the Shuchite answered, 2 “Dominion and fear are with him; He makes shalom in his high places. 3 Can his armies be counted? On whom does his light not arise? 4 How then can man be just with God? Or how can he who is born of a woman be clean? 5 Behold, even the moon has no brightness, And the stars are not pure in his sight; 6 How much less man, who is a worm! The son of man, who is a worm!”

26:1 Then Iyov answered, 2 “How have you helped him who is without power! How have you saved the arm that has no strength! 3 How have you counseled him who has no wisdom, And plentifully declared sound knowledge! 4 To whom have you uttered words? Whose spirit came forth from you? 5 “Those who are deceased tremble, Those beneath the waters and all that live in them. 6 She’ol is naked before God, And Avaddon has no covering. 7 He stretches out the north over empty space, And hangs the eretz on nothing. 8 He binds up the waters in his thick clouds, And the cloud is not burst under them. 9 He encloses the face of his throne, And spreads his cloud on it. 10 He has described a boundary on the surface of the waters, And to the confines of light and darkness. 11 The pillars of heaven tremble And are astonished at his rebuke. 12 He stirs up the sea with his power, And by his understanding he strikes through Rachav. 13 By his Spirit the heavens are garnished. His hand has pierced the swift serpent. 14 Behold, these are but the outskirts of his ways. How small a whisper do we hear of him! But the thunder of his power who can understand?”

27:1 Iyov again took up his parable, and said, 2 “As God lives, who has taken away my right, The Almighty, who has made my soul bitter. 3 (For the length of my life is still in me, And the spirit of God is in my nostrils); 4 Surely my lips shall not speak unrighteousness, Neither shall my tongue utter deceit. 5 Far be it from me that I should justify you. Until I die I will not put away my integrity from me. 6 I hold fast to my righteousness, and will not let it go. My heart shall not reproach me so long as I live. 7 “Let my enemy be as the wicked, Let him who rises up against me be as the unrighteous. 8 For what is the hope of the godless, when he is cut off, When God takes away his life? 9 Will God hear his cry, When trouble comes on him? 10 Will he delight himself in Shaddai, And call on God at all times? 11 I will teach you about the hand of God. That which is with Shaddai will I not conceal. 12 Behold, all of you have seen it yourselves; Why then have you become altogether vain? 13 “This is the portion of a wicked man with God, The heritage of oppressors, which they receive from Shaddai. 14 If his children are multiplied, it is for the sword. His offspring shall not be satisfied with bread. 15 Those who remain of him shall be buried in death. His widows shall make no lamentation. 16 Though he heap up silver as the dust, And prepare clothing as the clay; 17 He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, And the innocent shall divide the silver. 18 He builds his house as the moth, As a booth which the watchman makes. 19 He lies down rich, but he shall not do so again. He opens his eyes, and he is not. 20 Terrors overtake him like waters; A tempest steals him away in the night. 21 The east wind carries him away, and he departs; It sweeps him out of his place. 22 For it hurls at him, and does not spare, As he flees away from his hand. 23 Men shall clap their hands at him, And shall hiss him out of his place.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 1:12 – 2:11

1:12 For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and sincerity of God, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God we behaved ourselves in the world, and more abundantly toward you. 13 For we write no other things to you, than what you read or even acknowledge, and I hope you will acknowledge to the end; 14 as also you acknowledged us in part, that we are your boasting, even as you also are ours, in the day of our Lord Yeshua. 15 In this confidence, I was determined to come first to you, that you might have a second benefit; 16 and by you to pass into Macedonia, and again from Macedonia to come to you, and to be sent forward by you on my journey to Yehudah. 17 When I therefore was thus determined, did I show fickleness? Or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be the “Yes, yes” and the “No, no?” 18 But as God is faithful, our word toward you was not “Yes and no.” 19 For the Son of God, Yeshua the Messiah, who was preached among you by us, by me, Sila, and Timothy, was not “Yes and no,” but in him is “Yes.” 20 For however many are the promises of God, in him is the “Yes.” Therefore also through him is the “Amein,” to the glory of God through us. 21 Now he who establishes us with you in Messiah, and anointed us, is God; 22 who also sealed us, and gave us the down payment of the Spirit in our hearts.23 But I call God for a witness to my soul, that I didn’t come to Corinth to spare you. 24 Not that we have lordship over your faith, but are fellow workers with you for your joy. For you stand firm in faith.

2:1 But I determined this for myself, that I would not come to you again in sorrow. 2 For if I make you sorry, then who will make me glad but he who is made sorry by me? 3 And I wrote this very thing to you, so that, when I came, I wouldn’t have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is of you all. 4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you with many tears, not that you should be made sorry, but that you might know the love that I have so abundantly for you. 5 But if any has caused sorrow, he has caused sorrow, not to me, but in part (that I not press too heavily) to you all. 6 Sufficient to such a one is this punishment which was inflicted by the many; 7 so that on the contrary you should rather forgive him and comfort him, lest by any means such a one should be swallowed up with his excessive sorrow. 8 Therefore I beg you to confirm your love toward him. 9 For to this end I also wrote, that I might know the proof of you, whether you are obedient in all things. 10 Now I also forgive whomever you forgive anything. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Messiah, 11 that no advantage may be gained over us by Hasatan; for we are not ignorant of his schemes.

JUNE 6

PSALMS: 6, 36, 66, 96, 126

PROVERBS: 6

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 20:1 – 22:30

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 1:1 – 11

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: JOB 20:1 – 22:30

20:1 Then Tzofar the Na`amatite answered, 2 “Therefore do my thoughts give answer to me, Even by reason of my haste that is in me. 3 I have heard the reproof which puts me to shame; The spirit of my understanding answers me. 4 Don’t you know this from old time, Since man was placed on eretz, 

5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, The joy of the godless but for a moment? 6 Though his height mount up to the heavens, And his head reach to the clouds, 7 Yet he shall perish forever like his own dung, Those who have seen him shall say, ‘Where is he?’ 8 He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: Yes, he shall be chased away like a vision of the night. 9 The eye which saw him shall see him no more, Neither shall his place any more see him. 10 His children shall seek the favor of the poor. His hands shall give back his wealth. 11 His bones are full of his youth, But youth shall lie down with him in the dust. 12 “Though wickedness is sweet in his mouth, Though he hide it under his tongue, 13 Though he spare it, and will not let it go, But keep it still within his mouth; 14 Yet his food in his bowels is turned. It is cobra venom within him. 15 He has swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again. God will cast them out of his belly. 16 He shall suck cobra venom. The viper’s tongue shall kill him. 17 He shall not look at the rivers, The flowing streams of honey and butter. 18 That for which he labored he shall restore, and shall not swallow it down; According to the substance that he has gotten, he shall not rejoice. 19 For he has oppressed and forsaken the poor. He has violently taken away a house, and he shall not build it up. 20 “Because he knew no quietness within him, He shall not save anything of that in which he delights. 21 There was nothing left that he didn’t devour, Therefore his prosperity shall not endure. 22 In the fullness of his sufficiency, distress shall overtake him: The hand of everyone who is in misery shall come on him. 23 When he is about to fill his belly, God will cast the fierceness of his wrath on him. It will rain on him while he is eating. 24 He shall flee from the iron weapon. The bronze arrow shall strike him through. 25 He draws it forth, and it comes out of his body. Yes, the glittering point comes out of his liver. Terrors are on him. 26 All darkness is laid up for his treasures. An unfanned fire shall devour him. It shall consume that which is left in his tent. 27 The heavens shall reveal his iniquity, The eretz shall rise up against him. 28 The increase of his house shall depart; They shall rush away in the day of his wrath. 29 This is the portion of a wicked man from God, The heritage appointed to him by God.”

21:1 Then Iyov answered, 2 “Listen diligently to my speech. Let this be your consolation. 3 Allow me, and I also will speak; After I have spoken, mock on. 4 As for me, is my complaint to man? Why shouldn’t I be impatient? 5 Look at me, and be astonished. Lay your hand on your mouth. 6 When I remember, I am troubled. Horror takes hold of my flesh. 7 “Why do the wicked live, Become old, yes, and grow mighty in power? 8 Their child is established with them in their sight, Their offspring before their eyes. 9 Their houses are safe from fear, Neither is the rod of God upon them. 10 Their bulls breed without fail. Their cows calve, and don’t miscarry. 11 They send forth their little ones like a flock. Their children dance. 12They sing to the tambourine and harp, And rejoice at the sound of the pipe. 13 They spend their days in prosperity. In an instant they go down to She’ol. 14 They tell God, ‘Depart from us, For we don’t want to know about your ways. 15 What is Shaddai, that we should serve him? What profit should we have, if we pray to him?’ 16 Behold, their prosperity is not in their hand: The counsel of the wicked is far from me. 17 “How often is it that the lamp of the wicked is put out? That their calamity comes on them? That God distributes sorrows in his anger? 18 That they are as stubble before the wind, As chaff that the storm carries away? 19 You say, ‘God lays up his iniquity for his children.’ Let him recompense it to himself, that he may know it. 20 Let his own eyes see his destruction. Let him drink of the wrath of Shaddai. 21 For what does he care for his house after him, When the number of his months is cut off? 22 “Shall any teach God knowledge, Seeing he judges those who are high? 23 One dies in his full strength, Being wholly at ease and quiet. 24 His pails are full of milk. The marrow of his bones is moistened. 25 Another dies in bitterness of soul, And never tastes of good. 26 They lie down alike in the dust, The worm covers them. 27 “Behold, I know your thoughts, The devices with which you would wrong me. 28 For you say, ‘Where is the house of the prince? Where is the tent in which the wicked lived?’ 29 Haven’t you asked wayfaring men? Don’t you know their evidences, 30 That the evil man is reserved to the day of calamity? That they are led forth to the day of wrath? 31 Who shall declare his way to his face? Who shall repay him what he has done? 32 Yet shall he be borne to the grave, Men shall keep watch over the tomb. 33 The clods of the valley shall be sweet to him. All men shall draw after him, As there were innumerable before him. 34 So how can you comfort me with nonsense, Seeing that in your answers there remains only falsehood?”

22:1 Then Elifaz the Temanite answered, 2 “Can a man be profitable to God? Surely he who is wise is profitable to himself. 3 Is it any pleasure to Shaddai, that you are righteous? Or does it benefit him, that you make your ways perfect? 4 Is it for your piety that he reproves you, That he enters with you into judgment? 5 Isn’t your wickedness great? Neither is there any end to your iniquities. 6 For you have taken pledges from your brother for nothing, And stripped the naked of their clothing. 7 You haven’t given water to the weary to drink, And you have withheld bread from the hungry. 8 But as for the mighty man, he had the eretz. The honorable man, he lived in it. 9 You have sent widows away empty, And the arms of the fatherless have been broken. 10 Therefore snares are round about you. Sudden fear troubles you, 11 Or darkness, so that you can not see, And floods of waters cover you. 12 “Isn’t God in the heights of heaven? See the height of the stars, how high they are! 13 You say, ‘What does God know? Can he judge through the thick darkness? 14 Thick clouds are a covering to him, so that he doesn’t see. He walks on the vault of the sky.’ 15 Will you keep the old way Which wicked men have trodden, 16 Who were snatched away before their time, Whose foundation was poured out as a stream, 17 Who said to God, ‘Depart from us;’ And, ‘What can Shaddai do for us?’ 18 Yet he filled their houses with good things, But the counsel of the wicked is far from me. 19 The righteous see it, and are glad; The innocent laugh them to scorn, 20 Saying, ‘Surely those who rose up against us are cut off, The fire has consumed the remnant of them.’ 21 “Acquaint yourself with him, now, and be at shalom. Thereby good shall come to you. 22 Please receive instruction from his mouth, And lay up his words in your heart. 23 If you return to Shaddai, you shall be built up, If you put away unrighteousness far from your tents. 24 Lay your treasure in the dust, The gold of Ofir among the stones of the brooks. 25 The Almighty will be your treasure, Precious silver to you. 26 For then shall you delight yourself in Shaddai, And shall lift up your face to God. 27 You shall make your prayer to him, and he will hear you. You shall pay your vows. 28 You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established to you. Light shall shine on your ways. 29 When they cast down, you shall say, ‘be lifted up.’ He will save the humble person. 30 He will even deliver him who is not innocent; Yes, he shall be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 1:1 – 11

1:1 Sha’ul, an apostle of Messiah Yeshua through the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to the assembly of God which is at Corinth, with all the holy ones who are in the whole of Achaia: 

2 Grace to you and shalom from God our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah. 

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; 

4 who comforts us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, through the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 

5 For as the sufferings of Messiah abound to us, even so our comfort also abounds through Messiah. 

6 But if we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation. If we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which works in the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer. 

7  Our hope for you is steadfast, knowing that, since you are partakers of the sufferings, so also are you of the comfort. 

8 For we don’t desire to have you uninformed, brothers, concerning our affliction which happened to us in Asia, that we were weighed down exceedingly, beyond our power, so much that we despaired even of life. 

9 Yes, we ourselves have had the sentence of death within ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead, 

10 who delivered us out of so great a death, and does deliver; on whom we have set our hope that he will also still deliver us; 

11 you also helping together on our behalf by your supplication; that, for the gift bestowed on us by means of many, thanks may be given by many persons on your behalf.

JUNE 5

PSALMS: 5, 35, 65, 95, 125

PROVERBS: 5

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 16:1 – 19:29

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORITHIANS 16:1 – 24

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, f

resh 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: JOB 16:1 – 19:29

16:1 Then Iyov answered, 2 “I have heard many such things. Miserable comforters are you all! 3 Shall vain words have an end? Or what provokes you that you answer? 4 I also could speak as you do. If your soul were in my soul’s place, I could join words together against you, And shake my head at you. 5 But I would strengthen you with my mouth. The solace of my lips would relieve you. 6 “Though I speak, my grief is not subsided. Though I forbear, what am I eased? 7  But now, God, you have surely worn me out. You have made desolate all my company. 8 You have shriveled me up. This is a witness against me. My leanness rises up against me, It testifies to my face. 9 He has torn me in his wrath, and persecuted me; He has gnashed on me with his teeth: My adversary sharpens his eyes on me. 10 They have gaped on me with their mouth; They have struck me on the cheek reproachfully. They gather themselves together against me. 11 God delivers me to the ungodly, And casts me into the hands of the wicked. 12 I was at ease, and he broke me apart. Yes, he has taken me by the neck, and dashed me to pieces. He has also set me up for his target. 13 His archers surround me. He splits my kidneys apart, and does not spare. He pours out my gall on the ground. 14 He breaks me with breach on breach. He runs on me like a Rafa. 15 I have sewed sackcloth on my skin, And have thrust my horn in the dust. 16 My face is red with weeping. Deep darkness is on my eyelids. 17 Although there is no violence in my hands, And my prayer is pure. 18 “Eretz, don’t cover my blood, Let my cry have no place to rest. 19 Even now, behold, my witness is in heaven. He who vouches for me is on high. 20 My friends scoff at me. My eyes pour out tears to God, 21 That he would maintain the right of a man with God, Of a son of man with his neighbor! 22 For when a few years are come, I shall go the way from whence I shall not return.

17:1 “My spirit is consumed, my days are extinct, And the grave is ready for me. 2 Surely there are mockers with me, My eye dwells on their provocation. 3 “Now give a pledge, be collateral for me with yourself. Who is there who will strike hands with me? 4 For you have hidden their heart from understanding, Therefore shall you not exalt them. 5 He who denounces his friends for a prey, Even the eyes of his children shall fail. 6 “But he has made me a byword of the people. They spit in my face. 7 My eye also is dim by reason of sorrow. All my members are as a shadow. 8 Upright men shall be astonished at this. The innocent shall stir up himself against the godless. 9 Yet shall the righteous hold on his way. He who has clean hands shall grow stronger and stronger. 10 But as for you all, come on now again; I shall not find a wise man among you. 11 My days are past, my plans are broken off, As are the thoughts of my heart. 12 They change the night into day, Saying ‘The light is near’ in the presence of darkness. 13 If I look for She’ol as my house, If I have spread my couch in the darkness, 14 If I have said to corruption, ‘You are my father;’ To the worm, ‘My mother,’ and ‘my sister;’ 15 Where then is my hope? As for my hope, who shall see it? 16 Shall it go down with me to the gates of She’ol, Or descend together into the dust?”

18:1 Then Bildad the Shuchite answered, 2 “How long will you hunt for words? Consider, and afterwards we will speak. 3 Why are we counted as animals, Which have become unclean in your sight? 4 You who tear yourself in your anger, Shall the eretz be forsaken for you? Or shall the rock be removed out of its place? 5 “Yes, the light of the wicked shall be put out, The spark of his fire shall not shine. 6 The light shall be dark in his tent, His lamp above him shall be put out. 7 The steps of his strength shall be shortened, His own counsel shall cast him down. 8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, And he wanders into its mesh. 9 A snare shall take him by the heel; A trap shall lay hold on him. 10 A noose is hidden for him in the ground, A trap for him in the way. 11 Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, And shall chase him at his heels. 12 His strength shall be famished, Calamity shall be ready at his side. 13 The members of his body shall be devoured, The firstborn of death shall devour his members. 14 He shall be rooted out of his tent where he trusts. He shall be brought to the king of terrors. 15 There shall dwell in his tent that which is none of his. Sulfur shall be scattered on his habitation. 16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, Above shall his branch be cut off. 17  His memory shall perish from the eretz. He shall have no name in the street. 18 He shall be driven from light into darkness, And chased out of the world. 19 He shall have neither son nor grandson among his people, Nor any remaining where he sojourned. 20 Those who come after shall be astonished at his day, As those who went before were frightened. 21 Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous, This is the place of him who doesn’t know God.”

19:1 Then Iyov answered, 2 “How long will you torment me, And crush me with words? 3 You have reproached me ten times. You aren’t ashamed that you attack me. 4 If it is true that I have erred, My error remains with myself. 5 If indeed you will magnify yourselves against me, And plead against me my reproach; 6 Know now that God has subverted me, And has surrounded me with his net. 7 “Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry for help, but there is no justice. 8 He has walled up my way so that I can’t pass, And has set darkness in my paths. 9 He has stripped me of my glory, And taken the crown from my head. 10 He has broken me down on every side, and I am gone. My hope he has plucked up like a tree. 11 He has also kindled his wrath against me. He counts me among his adversaries. 12 His troops come on together, Build a siege ramp against me, And encamp around my tent. 13 “He has put my brothers far from me. My acquaintances are wholly estranged from me. 14 My relatives have gone away. My familiar friends have forgotten me. 15 Those who dwell in my house, and my maids, count me for a stranger. I am an alien in their sight. 16 I call to my servant, and he gives me no answer; I beg him with my mouth. 17 My breath is offensive to my wife. I am loathsome to the children of my own mother. 18 Even young children despise me. If I arise, they speak against me. 19 All my familiar friends abhor me. They whom I loved have turned against me. 20 My bones stick to my skin and to my flesh. I have escaped by the skin of my teeth. 21 “Have pity on me, have pity on me, you my friends; For the hand of God has touched me. 22 Why do you persecute me as God, And are not satisfied with my flesh? 23 “Oh that my words were now written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book! 24 That with an iron pen and lead They were engraved in the rock forever! 25 But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the eretz. 26 After my skin is destroyed, Then in my flesh shall I see God, 27 Whom I, even I, shall see on my side. My eyes shall see, and not as a stranger. “My heart is consumed within me. 28 If you say, ‘How we will persecute him!’ Because the root of the matter is found in me, 29 Be afraid of the sword, For wrath brings the punishments of the sword, That you may know there is a judgment.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORITHIANS 16:1 – 24

16:1 Now concerning the collection for the holy ones, as I commanded the assemblies of Galatia, you do likewise. 

2 On the first day of the week, let each one of you save, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come. 

3 When I arrive, I will send whoever you approve with letters to carry your gracious gift to Yerushalayim. 

4 If it is appropriate for me to go also, they will go with me. 

5 But I will come to you when I have passed through Macedonia, for I am passing through Macedonia. 

6 But with you it may be that I will stay, or even winter, that you may send me on my journey wherever I go.

7  For I do not wish to see you now in passing, but I hope to stay a while with you, if the Lord permits. 

8 But I will stay at Ephesus until Shavu`ot, 

9 for a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. 

10 Now if Timothy comes, see that he is with you without fear, for he does the work of the Lord, as I also do.

11 Therefore let no one despise him. But set him forward on his journey in shalom, that he may come to me; for I expect him with the brothers. 

12 But concerning Apollos, the brother, I begged him much to come to you with the brothers; and it was not all his desire to come now; but he will come when he has an opportunity. 

13 Watch! Stand firm in the faith! Be men! Be strong! 

14 Let all that you do be done in love. 

15 Now I beg you, brothers (you know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first fruits of Achaia, and that they have set themselves to minister to the holy ones), 

16 that you also be in subjection to such, and to everyone who helps in the work and labors.

17  I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus; for that which was lacking on your part, they supplied. 

18 For they refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore acknowledge those who are like that. 

19 The assemblies of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you much in the Lord, together with the assembly that is in their house. 

20 All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. 

21 This greeting is by me, Sha’ul, with my own hand. 

22 If any man doesn’t love the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, let him be accursed. Maranata! 

23 The grace of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah be with you. 

24 My love to all of you in Messiah Yeshua. Amein.

JUNE 4

PSALMS: 4, 34, 64, 94, 124

PROVERBS: 4

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 12:1 – 15:35

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 15:29 – 58

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: JOB 12:1 – 15:35

12:1 Then Iyov answered, 2 “No doubt, but you are the people, And wisdom shall die with you. 3 But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: Yes, who doesn’t know such things as these? 4 I am like one who is a joke to his neighbor, I, who called on God, and he answered. The just, the blameless man is a joke. 5 In the thought of him who is at ease there is contempt for misfortune, It is ready for them whose foot slips. 6 The tents of robbers prosper, Those who provoke God are secure; Who carry their God in their hands. 7 “But ask the animals, now, and they shall teach you; The birds of the sky, and they shall tell you. 8 Or speak to the eretz, and it shall teach you; The fish of the sea shall declare to you. 9 Who doesn’t know that in all these, The hand of the LORD has done this, 10 In whose hand is the life of every living thing, The breath of all mankind? 11 Doesn’t the ear try words, Even as the palate tastes its food? 12 With aged men is wisdom, In length of days understanding. 13 “With God is wisdom and might. He has counsel and understanding. 14 Behold, he breaks down, and it can’t be built again; He imprisons a man, and there can be no release. 15 Behold, he withholds the waters, and they dry up; Again, he sends them out, and they overturn the eretz. 16 With him is strength and wisdom; The deceived and the deceiver are his.

17  He leads counselors away stripped. He makes judges fools. 18 He loosens the bond of kings, He binds their loins with a belt. 19 He leads Kohanim away stripped, And overthrows the mighty. 20 He removes the speech of those who are trusted, And takes away the understanding of the Zakenim. 21He pours contempt on princes, And loosens the belt of the strong. 22 He uncovers deep things out of darkness, And brings out to light the shadow of death. 23 He increases the nations, and he destroys them. He enlarges the nations, and he leads them captive. 24 He takes away understanding from the chiefs of the people of the eretz, And causes them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way. 25 They grope in the dark without light. He makes them stagger like a drunken man.

13:1 “Behold, my eye has seen all this, My ear has heard and understood it. 2 What you know, I know also. I am not inferior to you. 3 “Surely I would speak to Shaddai. I desire to reason with God. 4 But you are forgers of lies. You are all physicians of no value. 5 Oh that you would be completely silent! Then you would be wise. 6 Hear now my reasoning. Listen to the pleadings of my lips. 7  Will you speak unrighteously for God, And talk deceitfully for him? 8 Will you show partiality to him? Will you contend for God? 9 Is it good that he should search you out? Or as one deceives a man, will you deceive him? 

10 He will surely reprove you If you secretly show partiality. 11 Shall not his majesty make you afraid, And his dread fall on you? 12 Your memorable sayings are proverbs of ashes, Your defenses are defenses of clay. 13 “Be silent, leave me alone, that I may speak. Let come on me what will. 14 Why should I take my flesh in my teeth, And put my life in my hand? 15 Behold, he will kill me; I have no hope. Nevertheless, I will maintain my ways before him. 16 This also shall be my salvation, That a godless man shall not come before him. 17  Hear diligently my speech. Let my declaration be in your ears. 18 See now, I have set my cause in order. I know that I am righteous. 19 Who is he who will contend with me? For then would I hold my shalom and give up the spirit. 20 “Only don’t do two things to me; Then I will not hide myself from your face: 21 Withdraw your hand far from me; And don’t let your terror make me afraid. 22 Then call, and I will answer; Or let me speak, and you answer me. 23 How many are my iniquities and sins? Make me know my disobedience and my sin. 24 Why hide you your face, And hold me for your enemy? 25 Will you harass a driven leaf? Will you pursue the dry stubble? 26 For you write bitter things against me, And make me inherit the iniquities of my youth: 27 You also put my feet in the stocks, And mark all my paths. You set a bound to the soles of my feet: 28 Though I am decaying like a rotten thing, Like a garment that is moth-eaten.

14:1 “Man, who is born of a woman, Is of few days, and full of trouble. 2 He comes forth like a flower, and is cut down. He also flees like a shadow, and doesn’t continue. 3 Do you open your eyes on such a one, And bring me into judgment with you? 4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? Not one. 5 Seeing his days are determined, The number of his months is with you, And you have appointed his bounds that he can’t pass; 6 Look away from him, that he may rest, Until he shall accomplish, as a hireling, his day. 7 “For there is hope for a tree, If it is cut down, that it will sprout again, That the tender branch of it will not cease. 8 Though the root of it grows old in the eretz, And the stock of it dies in the ground; 9 Yet through the scent of water it will bud, And put forth boughs like a plant. 10 But man dies, and is laid low. Yes, man gives up the spirit, and where is he? 11 As the waters fail from the sea, And the river wastes and dries up, 12 So man lies down and doesn’t rise; Until the heavens are no more, they shall not awake, Nor be roused out of their sleep. 13“Oh that you would hide me in She’ol, That you would keep me secret, until your wrath is past, That you would appoint me a set time, and remember me! 14 If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my warfare would I wait, Until my release should come. 15 You would call, and I would answer you. You would have a desire to the work of your hands. 16 But now you number my steps. Don’t you watch over my sin? 17 My disobedience is sealed up in a bag. You fasten up my iniquity. 18 “But the mountain falling comes to nothing; The rock is removed out of its place; 19 The waters wear the stones; The torrents of it wash away the dust of the eretz: So you destroy the hope of man. 20 You forever prevail against him, and he passes; You change his face, and send him away. 21 His sons come to honor, and he doesn’t know it; They are brought low, but he doesn’t perceive it of them. 22 But his flesh on him has pain; His soul within him mourns.”

15:1 Then Elifaz the Temanite answered, 2 “Should a wise man answer with vain knowledge, And fill himself with the east wind? 3 Should he reason with unprofitable talk, Or with speeches with which he can do no good? 4 Yes, you do away with fear, And hinder devotion before God. 5 For your iniquity teaches your mouth, And you choose the language of the crafty. 6 Your own mouth condemns you, and not I; Yes, your own lips testify against you. 7 “Are you the first man who was born? Or were you brought forth before the hills? 8 Have you heard the secret counsel of God? Do you limit wisdom to yourself? 9 What do you know, that we don’t know? What do you understand, which is not in us? 10 With us are both the gray-headed and the very aged men, Much elder than your father. 11 Are the consolations of God too small for you, Even the word that is gentle toward you? 12 Why does your heart carry you away? Why do your eyes flash, 13 That you turn your spirit against God, And let such words go out of your mouth? 14 What is man, that he should be clean? He who is born of a woman, that he should be righteous? 15 Behold, he puts no trust in his holy ones; Yes, the heavens are not clean in his sight: 16 How much less one who is abominable and corrupt, A man who drinks iniquity like water! 17  “I will show you, listen to me; That which I have seen I will declare: 18 (Which wise men have told From their fathers, and have not hidden it; 19 To whom alone the land was given, And no stranger passed among them): 20 The wicked man travails with pain all his days, Even the number of years that are laid up for the oppressor. 21 A sound of terrors is in his ears; In prosperity the destroyer shall come on him. 22 He doesn’t believe that he shall return out of darkness, He is waited for by the sword. 23 He wanders abroad for bread, saying, ‘Where is it?’ He knows that the day of darkness is ready at his hand. 24 Distress and anguish make him afraid; They prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle. 25 Because he has stretched out his hand against God, And behaves himself proudly against Shaddai; 26 He runs at him with a stiff neck, With the thick shields of his bucklers; 27 Because he has covered his face with his fatness, And gathered fat on his loins. 28 He has lived in desolate cities, In houses which no one inhabited, Which were ready to become heaps. 29 He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, Neither shall their possessions be extended on the eretz. 30 He shall not depart out of darkness; The flame shall dry up his branches, By the breath of God’s mouth shall he go away. 31 Let him not trust in emptiness, deceiving himself; For emptiness shall be his reward. 32 It shall be accomplished before his time. His branch shall not be green. 33 He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine, And shall cast off his flower as the olive tree. 34 For the company of the godless shall be barren, And fire shall consume the tents of bribery. 35 They conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. Their heart prepares deceit.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 15:29 – 58

15:29 Or else what will they do who are immersed for the dead? If the dead aren’t raised at all, why then are they immersed for the dead?

30 Why do we also stand in jeopardy every hour? 

31 I die daily, by your boasting which I have in Messiah Yeshua our Lord. 

32 If I fought with animals at Ephesus like men, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, then “let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.”

33 Don’t be deceived! “Evil companionships corrupt good morals.”

34 Wake up righteously, and don’t sin, for some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame. 

35 But some one will say, “How are the dead raised?” and, “With what kind of body do they come?”

36 You foolish one, that which you yourself sow is not made alive unless it dies. 

37 That which you sow, you don’t sow the body that will be, but a bare grain, maybe of wheat, or of some other kind. 

38But God gives it a body even as it pleased him, and to each seed a body of its own. 

39 All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds. 

40 There are also celestial bodies, and terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial differs from that of the terrestrial. 

41 There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory. 

42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption. 

43 It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. 

44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is also a spiritual body. 

45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 

46 However that which is spiritual isn’t first, but that which is natural, then that which is spiritual. 

47 The first man is of the eretz, made of dust. The second man is the Lord from heaven. 

48 As is the one made of dust, such are those who are also made of dust; and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 

49 As we have borne the image of those made of dust, let’s also bear the image of the heavenly. 

50 Now I say this, brothers, that flesh and blood can’t inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption. 

51 Behold, I tell you a mystery. We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 

52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last shofar. For the shofar will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed. 

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 

54 But when this corruptible will have put on incorruption, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then what is written will happen: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” 

55 “Death, where is your sting? She’ol, where is your victory?” 

56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 

57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah. 

58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the Lord’s work, because you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

JUNE 3

PSALMS: 3, 33, 63, 93, 123

PROVERBS: 3

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 8:1 – 11:20

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 15:1 – 28

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: JOB 8:1 – 11:20

8:1 Then Bildad the Shuchite answered, 2 “How long will you speak these things? Shall the words of your mouth be a mighty wind? 3 Does God pervert justice? Or does Shaddai pervert righteousness? 4 I f your children have sinned against him, He has delivered them into the hand of their disobedience; 5 If you want to seek God diligently, Make your supplication to Shaddai. 6 If you were pure and upright, Surely now he would awaken for you, And make the habitation of your righteousness prosperous. 7 Though your beginning was small, Yet your latter end would greatly increase. 8 “Please inquire of past generations, Find out about the learning of their fathers. 9 (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, Because our days on eretz are a shadow.) 10 Shall they not teach you, tell you, And utter words out of their heart? 11 “Can the papyrus grow up without mire? Can the rushes grow without water? 12 While it is yet in its greenness, not cut down, It withers before any other reed. 13 So are the paths of all who forget God. The hope of the godless man shall perish, 14 Whose confidence shall break apart, Whose trust is a spider’s web. 15 He shall lean on his house, but it shall not stand. He shall cling to it, but it shall not endure. 16 He is green before the sun, His shoots go forth over his garden. 17  His roots are wrapped around the rock pile, He sees the place of stones. 18 If he is destroyed from his place, Then it shall deny him, saying, ‘I have not seen you.’ 19 Behold, this is the joy of his way: Out of the eretz shall others spring.20 “Behold, God will not cast away a blameless man, Neither will he uphold the evil-doers. 21 He will still fill your mouth with laughter, Your lips with shouting. 22 Those who hate you shall be clothed with shame. The tent of the wicked shall be no more.”

9;1 Then Iyov answered, 2 “Truly I know that it is so, But how can man be just with God? 3 If he is pleased to contend with him, He can’t answer him one time in a thousand. 4 God who is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: Who has hardened himself against him, and prospered? 5 Who removes the mountains, and they don’t know it, When he overturns them in his anger 6 Who shakes the eretz out of its place; The pillars of it tremble; 7  Who commands the sun, and it doesn’t rise, And seals up the stars; 8 Who alone stretches out the heavens, Treads on the waves of the sea; 9 Who makes Ayish, Kesil, and the Kima, And the chambers of the south; 10 Who does great things past finding out, Yes, marvelous things without number. 11 Behold, he goes by me, and I don’t see him. He passes on also, but I don’t perceive him. 12 Behold, he snatches away; who can hinder him? Who will ask him, ‘What are you doing?’ 13 “God will not withdraw his anger; The helpers of Rachav stoop under him. 14 How much less shall I answer him, Choose my words to argue with him? 15 Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer. I would make supplication to my judge. 16 If I had called, and he had answered me, Yet would I not believe that he listened to my voice. 17 For he breaks me with a tempest, Multiplies my wounds without cause. 18 He will not allow me to take my breath, But fills me with bitterness. 19 If it is a matter of strength, behold, he is mighty! If of justice, ‘Who,’ says he, ‘will summon me?’ 20 Though I am righteous, my own mouth shall condemn me. Though I am blameless, it shall prove me perverse. 21 I am blameless. I don’t regard myself. I despise my life. 22 “It is all the same. Therefore I say, He destroys the blameless and the wicked. 23 If the scourge kills suddenly, He will mock at the trial of the innocent. 24 The eretz is given into the hand of the wicked. He covers the faces of the judges of it. If not he, then who is it? 25“Now my days are swifter than a runner. They flee away, they see no good, 26 They have passed away as the swift ships, As the eagle that swoops on the prey. 27 If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint, I will put off my sad face, and cheer up;’ 28 I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that you will not hold me innocent. 29 I shall be condemned; Why then do I labor in vain? 30 If I wash myself with snow, And cleanse my hands with lye, 31 Yet you will plunge me in the ditch. My own clothes shall abhor me. 32 For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, That we should come together in judgment. 33 There is no umpire between us, That might lay his hand on us both. 34 Let him take his rod away from me, Let his terror not make me afraid: 35 Then I would speak, and not fear him, For I am not so in myself.

10:1 “My soul is weary of my life; I will give free course to my complaint. I will speak in the bitterness of my soul. 2 I will tell God, ‘Do not condemn me, Show me why you contend with me. 3 Is it good to you that you should oppress, That you should despise the work of your hands, And smile on the counsel of the wicked? 4 Do you have eyes of flesh? Or do you see as man sees? 5 Are your days as the days of mortals, Or your years as man’s years, 6 That you inquire after my iniquity, And search after my sin? 7 Although you know that I am not wicked, There is no one who can deliver out of your hand. 8 ‘Your hands have framed me and fashioned me altogether; Yet you destroy me. 9 Remember, I beg you, that you have fashioned me as clay. Will you bring me into dust again? 10 Haven’t you poured me out like milk, And curdled me like cheese? 11 You have clothed me with skin and flesh, And knit me together with bones and sinews. 12 You have granted me life and lovingkindness. Your visitation has preserved my spirit. 13 Yet you hid these things in your heart. I know that this is with you: 14 If I sin, then you mark me. You will not acquit me from my iniquity. 15 If I am wicked, woe to me. If I am righteous, I still shall not lift up my head, Being filled with disgrace, And conscious of my affliction. 16 If my head is held high, you hunt me like a lion. Again you show yourself powerful to me. 17 You renew your witnesses against me, And increase your indignation on me. Changes and warfare are with me. 18 “‘Why, then, have you brought me forth out of the womb? I wish I had given up the spirit, and no eye had seen me. 19 I should have been as though I had not been. I should have been carried from the womb to the grave. 20 Aren’t my days few? Cease then, Leave me alone, that I may find a little comfort, 21 Before I go where I shall not return from, To the land of darkness and of the shadow of death; 22 The land dark as midnight, Of the shadow of death, without any order, Where the light is as midnight.'”

11:1 Then Tzofar, the Na`amatite, answered, 2 “Shouldn’t the multitude of words be answered? Should a man full of talk be justified? 3 Should your boastings make men hold their shalom? When you mock, shall no man make you ashamed? 4 For you say, ‘My doctrine is pure, I am clean in your eyes.’ 5 But oh that God would speak, And open his lips against you, 6 That he would show you the secrets of wisdom! For true wisdom has two sides. Know therefore that God exacts of you less than your iniquity deserves. 7 “Can you fathom the mystery of God? Or can you probe the limits of Shaddai? 8 They are high as heaven. What can you do? Deeper than She’ol: what can you know? 9 The measure of it is longer than the eretz, And broader than the sea. 10 If he passes by, or confines, Or convenes a court, then who can oppose him? 11 For he knows false men. He sees iniquity also, even though he doesn’t consider it. 12 But vain man can become wise If a man can be born as a wild donkey’s colt. 13 “If you set your heart aright, Stretch out your hands toward him. 14 If iniquity is in your hand, put it far away, Don’t let unrighteousness dwell in your tents. 15 Surely then shall you lift up your face without spot; Yes, you shall be steadfast, and shall not fear: 16 For you shall forget your misery; You shall remember it as waters that are passed away, 17 Life shall be clearer than the noonday; Though there is darkness, it shall be as the morning. 18 You shall be secure, because there is hope; Yes, you shall search, and shall take your rest in safety. 19 Also you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid; Yes, many shall court your favor. 20 But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, They shall have no way to flee; Their hope shall be the giving up of the spirit.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 15:1 – 28

15:1 Now I declare to you, brothers, the Good News which I preached to you, which also you received, in which you also stand, 

2 by which also you are saved, if you hold firmly the word which I preached to you — unless you believed in vain. 

3 For I delivered to you first of all that which also I received: that Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 

4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 

5 and that he appeared to Kefa, then to the twelve. 

6 Then he appeared to over five hundred brothers at once, most of whom remain until now, but some have also fallen asleep. 

7  Then he appeared to Ya`akov, then to all the apostles, 

8 and last of all, as to the child born at the wrong time, he appeared to me also. 

9 For I am the least of the apostles, who is not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the assembly of God. 

10 But by the grace of God I am what I am. His grace which was bestowed on me was not found vain, but I worked more than all of them; yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. 

11 Whether then it is I or they, so we preach, and so you believed. 

12 Now if Messiah is preached, that he has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 

13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, neither has Messiah been raised. 

14 If Messiah has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain, and your faith also is in vain. 

15 Yes, we are found false witnesses of God, because we testified about God that he raised up Messiah, whom he didn’t raise up, if it is so that the dead are not raised. 

16 For if the dead aren’t raised, neither has Messiah been raised. 

17 If Messiah has not been raised, your faith is vain; you are still in your sins. 

18 Then they also who are fallen asleep in Messiah have perished. 

19 If we have only hoped in Messiah in this life, we are of all men most pitiable. 

20 But now Messiah has been raised from the dead. He became the first fruits of those who are asleep. 

21 For since death came by man, the resurrection of the dead also came by man. 

22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Messiah all will be made alive. 

23 But each in his own order: Messiah the first fruits, then those who are Messiah’s, at his coming.

24 Then the end comes, when he will deliver up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he will have abolished all rule and all authority and power. 

25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 

26 The last enemy that will be abolished is death. 

27 For, “He put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when he says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that he is excepted who subjected all things to him. 

28 When all things have been subjected to him, then the Son will also himself be subjected to him who subjected all things to him, that God may be all in all.

JUNE 2

PSALMS: 2, 32, 62, 92, 122

PROVERBS: 2

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 4:1 – 7:21

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 14:18 – 40

PSALMS: 2

1 Why are the nations in an uproar,

the peoples grumbling in vain?

2 The earth’s kings are taking positions,

leaders conspiring together,

against ADONAI and his anointed. 

3 They cry, “Let’s break their fetters!

Let’s throw off their chains!” 

4 He who sits in heaven laughs;

Adonai looks at them in derision. 

5 Then in his anger he rebukes them,

terrifies them in his fury. 

6 “I myself have installed my king on Tziyon,

my holy mountain.” 

7 “I will proclaim the decree:

ADONAI said to me,

‘You are my son;

today I became your father. 

8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance;

the whole wide world will be your possession. 

9 You will break them with an iron rod,

shatter them like a clay pot.'” 

10 Therefore, kings, be wise; be warned,

you judges of the earth. 

11 Serve ADONAI with fear;

rejoice, but with trembling. 

12 Kiss the son, lest he be angry,

and you perish along the way,

when suddenly his anger blazes.

How blessed are all who take refuge in him.

PSALMS: 32

1 By David.

A maskil:

How blessed are those whose offense is forgiven,

those whose sin is covered! 

2 How blessed those to whom ADONAI imputes no guilt,

in whose spirit is no deceit! 

3 When I kept silent,

my bones wasted away because of my groaning all day long;

4 day and night your hand was heavy on me;

the sap in me dried up as in a summer drought.

(Selah) 

5 When I acknowledged my sin to you,

when I stopped concealing my guilt,

and said, “I will confess my offenses to ADONAI”;

then you, you forgave the guilt of my sin. (Selah) 

6 This is what everyone faithful should pray at a time when you can be found.

Then, when the floodwaters are raging, they will not reach to him. 

7 You are a hiding-place for me, you will keep me from distress;

you will surround me with songs of deliverance. (Selah) 

8 “I will instruct and teach you in this way that you are to go;

I will give you counsel;

my eyes will be watching you.” 

9 Don’t be like a horse or mule that has no understanding,

that has to be curbed with bit and bridle,

or else it won’t come near you. 

10 Many are the torments of the wicked,

but grace surrounds those who trust in ADONAI. 

11 Be glad in ADONAI;

rejoice, you righteous!

Shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

PSALMS: 62

1 For the leader.

Set in the style of Y’dutun.

A psalm of David:

My soul waits in silence for God alone;

my salvation comes from him. 

2 He alone is my rock and salvation, my stronghold;

I won’t be greatly moved. 

3 How long will you assail a person in order to murder him, all of you,

as if he were a sagging wall or a shaky fence? 

4 They only want to shake him from his height,

they take delight in lying with their mouths they bless, but inwardly they curse.

(Selah) 

5 My soul, wait in silence for God alone,

because my hope comes from him. 

6 He alone is my rock and salvation, my stronghold;

I won’t be moved.

7  My safety and honor rest on God.

My strong rock and refuge are in God. 

8 Trust in him, people, at all times;

pour out your heart before him;

God is a refuge for us. (Selah) 

9 Ordinary folks are merely a breath and important people a sham;

if you lay them on a balance-scale, they go up both together are lighter than nothing. 

10 Don’t put your trust in extortion, don’t put false hopes in robbery;

even if wealth increases, don’t set your heart on it. 

11 God has spoken once, I have heard it twice:

strength belongs to God. 

12 Also to you, Adonai, belongs grace;

for you reward all as their deeds deserve.

PSALMS: 92

1 A psalm.

A song for Shabbat:

It is good to give thanks to ADONAI and sing praises to your name, ‘Elyon, 

2 to tell in the morning about your grace and at night about your faithfulness, 

3 to the music of a ten-stringed [harp] and a lute,

with the melody sounding on a lyre. 

4 For, ADONAI, what you do makes me happy;

I take joy in what your hands have made. 

5 How great are your deeds, ADONAI!

How very deep your thoughts! 

6 Stupid people can’t know, fools don’t understand, 

7 that when the wicked sprout like grass, and all who do evil prosper,

it is so that they can be eternally destroyed, 

8 while you, ADONAI, are exalted forever. 

9 For your enemies, ADONAI, your enemies will perish;

all evildoers will be scattered. 

10 But you have given me the strength of a wild bull;

you anoint me with fresh olive oil. 

11 My eyes have gazed with pleasure on my enemies’ ruin,

my ears have delighted in the fall of my foes. 

12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,

they will grow like a cedar in the L’vanon.

13 Planted in the house of ADONAI,

they will flourish in the courtyards of our God. 

14 Even in old age they will be vigorous,

still full of sap, still bearing fruit, 

15 proclaiming that ADONAI is upright, my Rock,

in whom there is no wrong.

PSALMS: 122

1 A song of ascents.

By David: I was glad when they said to me,

“The house of ADONAI! Let’s go!” 

2 Our feet were already standing at your gates, Yerushalayim. 

3 Yerushalayim, built as a city fostering friendship and unity. 

4 The tribes have gone up there, the tribes of ADONAI,

as a witness to Isra’el, to give thanks to the name of ADONAI. 

5 For there the thrones of justice were set up,

the thrones of the house of David. 

6 Pray for shalom in Yerushalayim;

may those who love you prosper. 

7 May shalom be within your ramparts,

prosperity in your palaces. 

8 For the sake of my family and friends,

I say, “Shalom be within you!” 

9 For the sake of the house of ADONAI our God,

I will seek your well-being.

PROVERBS: 2

1 My son, if you will receive my words and

store my commands inside you, 

2 paying attention to wisdom inclining

your mind toward understanding 

3 yes, if you will call for insight and

raise your voice for discernment, 

4 if you seek it as you would silver and

search for it as for hidden treasure – 

5 then you will understand the fear of ADONAI and find knowledge of God. 

6 For ADONAI gives wisdom;

from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding. 

7 He stores up common sense for the upright,

is a shield to those whose conduct is blameless, 

8 in order to guard the courses of justice and preserve

the way of those faithful to him. 

9 Then you will understand righteousness,

justice, fairness and every good path. 

10 For wisdom will enter your heart,

knowledge will be enjoyable for you, 

11 discretion will watch over you,

and discernment will guard you. 

12 They will save you from the way of evil and

from those who speak deceitfully, 

13 who leave the paths of honesty

to walk the ways of darkness, 

14 who delight in doing evil and

take joy in being stubbornly deceitful, 

15 from those whose tracks are twisted and

whose paths are perverse. 

16 They will save you from a woman who is a stranger,

from a loose woman with smooth talk, 

17 who abandons the ruler she had in her youth and

forgets the covenant of her God. 

18 Her house is sinking toward death,

her paths lead to the dead. 

19 None who go to her return;

they never regain the path to life. 

20 Thus you will walk on the way of good people

and keep to the paths of the righteous. 

21 For the upright will live in the land,

the pure-hearted will remain there; 

22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land,

the unfaithful rooted out of it.

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 4:1 – 7:21

4:1 Then Elifaz the Temanite answered, 2 “If someone ventures to talk with you, will you be grieved? But who can withhold himself from speaking? 3 Behold, you have instructed many, You have strengthened the weak hands. 4 Your words have supported him who was falling, You have made firm the feeble knees. 5 But now it is come to you, and you faint; It touches you, and you are troubled.6 Isn’t your piety your confidence, The integrity of your ways your hope? 7 “Remember, now, whoever perished, being innocent? Or where were the upright cut off? 8 According to what I have seen, those who plow iniquity, And sow trouble, Reap the same. 9 By the breath of God they perish, By the blast of his anger are they consumed. 10 The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, The teeth of the young lions, are broken. 11 The old lion perishes for lack of prey, The whelps of the lioness are scattered abroad. 12 “Now a thing was secretly brought to me, My ear received a whisper of it. 13 In thoughts from the visions of the night, When deep sleep falls on men, 14 Fear came on me, and trembling, Which made all my bones shake. 15 Then a spirit passed before my face; The hair of my flesh stood up. 16 It stood still, but I couldn’t discern the appearance of it; A form was before my eyes. Silence, then I heard a voice, saying, 17 ‘Shall mortal man be more just than God? Shall a man be more pure than his Maker?18 Behold, he puts no trust in his servants. He charges his angels with error. 19 How much more, those who dwell in houses of clay, Whose foundation is in the dust, Who are crushed before the moth! 20 Between morning and evening they are destroyed. They perish forever without any regarding it. 21 Isn’t their tent-cord plucked up within them? They die, and that without wisdom.’

5:1 “Call now; is there any who will answer you? To which of the holy ones will you turn? 2 For resentment kills the foolish man, And jealousy kills the simple. 3 I have seen the foolish taking root, But suddenly I cursed his habitation. 4 His children are far from safety, They are crushed in the gate. Neither is there any to deliver them, 5 Whose harvest the hungry eats up, And take it even out of the thorns; The snare gapes for their substance. 6 For affliction doesn’t come forth from the dust, Neither does trouble spring out of the ground; 7 But man is born to trouble, As the sparks fly upward. 8 “But as for me, I would seek God, To God would I commit my cause; 9 Who does great things that can’t be fathomed, Marvelous things without number; 10 Who gives rain on the eretz, And sends waters on the fields; 11 So that he sets up on high those who are low, Those who mourn are exalted to safety. 12 He frustrates the devices of the crafty, So that their hands can’t perform their enterprise. 13 He takes the wise in their own craftiness; The counsel of the cunning is carried headlong. 14 They meet with darkness in the day-time, And grope at noonday as in the night. 15 But he saves from the sword of their mouth, Even the needy from the hand of the mighty.16 So the poor has hope, And injustice shuts her mouth. 17 “Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects: Therefore do not despise the chastening of Shaddai. 18 For he wounds, and binds up; He injures, and his hands make whole. 19 He will deliver you in six troubles; Yes, in seven there shall no evil touch you. 20 In famine he will redeem you from death; In war, from the power of the sword. 21 You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, Neither shall you be afraid of destruction when it comes. 22 At destruction and famine you shall laugh, Neither shall you be afraid of the animals of the eretz. 23 For you shall be in league with the stones of the field. The animals of the field shall be at shalom with you. 24 You shall know that your tent is in shalom. You shall visit your fold, and shall miss nothing. 25 You shall know also that your seed shall be great, Your offspring as the grass of the eretz. 26 You shall come to your grave in a full age, Like a shock of grain comes in its season. 27 Look this, we have searched it, so it is; Hear it, and know it for your good.”

6:1 Then Iyov answered, 2 “Oh that my anguish were weighed, And all my calamity laid in the balances! 3 For now it would be heavier than the sand of the seas, Therefore have my words been rash. 4 For the arrows of Shaddai are within me, My spirit drinks up their poison. The terrors of God set themselves in array against me. 5 Does the wild donkey bray when he has grass? Or does the ox low over his fodder? 6 Can that which has no flavor be eaten without salt? Or is there any taste in the white of an egg? 7 My soul refuses to touch them; They are as loathsome food to me. 8 “Oh that I might have my request; That God would grant the thing that I long for! 9Even that it would please God to crush me; That he would let loose his hand, and cut me off! 10 Be it still my consolation, Yes, let me exult in pain that doesn’t spare, That I have not denied the words of the Holy One. 11 What is my strength, that I should wait? What is my end, that I should be patient? 12 Is my strength the strength of stones? Or is my flesh of brass? 13 Isn’t it that I have no help in me, That wisdom is driven quite from me? 14 “To him who is ready to faint, kindness should be shown from his friend; Even to him who forsakes the fear of Shaddai.15 My brothers have dealt deceitfully as a brook, As the channel of brooks that pass away; 16 Which are black by reason of the ice, in which the snow hides itself: 17 In the dry season, they vanish. When it is hot, they are consumed out of their place. 18 The caravans that travel beside them turn aside; They go up into the waste, and perish. 19 The caravans of Tema looked, The companies of Sheva waited for them. 20 They were put to shame because they had hoped; They came there, and were confounded. 21 For now you are nothing. You see a terror, and are afraid. 22 Did I say, ‘Give to me?’ Or, ‘Offer a present for me from your substance?’ 23 Or, ‘Deliver me from the adversary’s hand?’ Or, ‘Redeem me from the hand of the oppressors?’ 24 “Teach me, and I will hold my shalom; Cause me to understand wherein I have erred. 25 How forcible are words of uprightness! But your reproof, what does it reprove? 26 Do you intend to reprove words, Seeing that the speeches of one who is desperate are as wind? 27 Yes, you would even cast lots for the fatherless, And make merchandise of your friend. 28 Now therefore be pleased to look at me, For surely I shall not lie to your face. 29 Please return. Let there be no injustice; Yes, return again, my cause is righteous.30 Is there injustice on my tongue? Can’t my taste discern mischievous things?

7:1 “Isn’t a man forced to labor on eretz? Aren’t his days like the days of a hired hand? 2 As a servant who earnestly desires the shadow, As a hireling who looks for his wages, 3 So am I made to possess months of misery, Wearisome nights are appointed to me. 4 When I lie down, I say, ‘When shall I arise, and the night be gone?’ I toss and turn until the dawning of the day. 5 My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust. My skin closes up, and breaks out afresh. 6 My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle, And are spent without hope. 7 Oh remember that my life is a breath. My eye shall no more see good. 8 The eye of him who sees me shall see me no more. Your eyes shall be on me, but I shall not be. 9 As the cloud is consumed and vanishes away, So he who goes down to She’ol shall come up no more. 10 He shall return no more to his house, Neither shall his place know him any more. 11“Therefore I will not keep silent. I will speak in the anguish of my spirit. I will complain in the bitterness of my soul. 12 Am I a sea, or a sea-monster, That you put a guard over me? 13 When I say, ‘My bed shall comfort me, My couch shall ease my complaint;’ 14 Then you scar me with dreams, And terrify me through visions: 15 So that my soul chooses strangling, Death rather than my bones. 16I loathe my life. I don’t want to live forever. Leave me alone; for my days are but a breath. 17 What is man, that you should magnify him, That you should set your mind on him, 18 That you should visit him every morning, And test him every moment? 19 How long will you not look away from me, Nor leave me alone until I swallow down my spittle? 20 If I have sinned, what do I do to you, you watcher of men? Why have you set me as a mark for you, So that I am a burden to myself? 21 Why do you not pardon my disobedience, and take away my iniquity? For now shall I lie down in the dust. You will seek me diligently, but I shall not be.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 14:18 – 40

14:18 I thank my God, I speak with other languages more than you all.

19 However in the assembly I would rather speak five words with my understanding, that I might instruct others also, than ten thousand words in another language. 

20 Brothers, don’t be children in thoughts, yet in malice be babies, but in thoughts be mature. 

21 In the law it is written, “By men of strange languages and by the lips of strangers I will speak to this people. Not even thus will they hear me, says the Lord.” 

22 Therefore other languages are for a sign, not to those who believe, but to the unbelieving; but prophesying is for a sign, not to the unbelieving, but to those who believe. 

23 If therefore the whole assembly is assembled together and all speak with other languages, and unlearned or unbelieving people come in, won’t they say that you are crazy? 

24 But if all prophesy, and someone unbelieving or unlearned comes in, he is reproved by all, and he is judged by all. 

25 And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed. So he will fall down on his face and worship God, declaring that God is among you indeed. 

26 What is it then, brothers? When you come together, each one of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has another language, has an interpretation. Let all things be done to build each other up. 

27 If any man speaks in another language, let it be two, or at the most three, and in turn; and let one interpret. 

28 But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silence in the assembly, and let him speak to himself, and to God. 

29 Let the prophets speak, two or three, and let the others discern. 

30 But if a revelation is made to another sitting by, let the first keep silence. 

31 For you all can prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be exhorted. 

32 The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets, 

33 for God is not a God of confusion, but of shalom. As in all the assemblies of the holy ones, 

34 let your wives keep silence in the assemblies, for it has not been permitted for them to speak; but let them be in subjection, as the law also says. 

35 If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home, for it is shameful for a woman to chatter in the assembly. 

36 What? Was it from you that the word of God went forth? Or did it come to you alone? 

37 If any man thinks himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him recognize the things which I write to you, that they are the mitzvah of the Lord. 

38 But if anyone is ignorant, let him be ignorant. 

39 Therefore, brothers, desire earnestly to prophesy, and don’t forbid speaking with other languages. 

40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

JUNE 1

PSALMS: 1, 31, 61, 91, 121

PROVERBS: 1

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 1:1 – 3:26

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 14:1 – 17

PSALMS: 1

1 How blessed are those who reject the advice of the wicked,

don’t stand on the way of sinners or sit where scoffers sit! 

2 Their delight is in ADONAI’s Torah;

on his Torah they meditate day and night. 

3 They are like trees planted by streams -they bear their fruit in season,

their leaves never wither, everything they do succeeds. 

4 Not so the wicked, who are like chaff driven by the wind. 

5 For this reason the wicked won’t stand up to the judgment,

nor will sinners at the gathering of the righteous. 

6 For ADONAI watches over the way of the righteous,

but the way of the wicked is doomed.

PSALMS: 31

1 For the leader.

A psalm of David:

In you, ADONAI, I take refuge;

let me never be put to shame;

in your justice, save me! 

2 Turn your ear toward me, come quickly to my rescue,

be for me a rock of strength, a fortress to keep me safe. 

3 Since you are my rock and fortress, lead me and guide me for your name’s sake. 

4 Free me from the net they have hidden to catch me, because you are my strength. 

5 Into your hand I commit my spirit;

you will redeem me, ADONAI, God of truth. 

6 I hate those who serve worthless idols;

as for me, I trust in ADONAI. 

7  I will rejoice and be glad in your grace,

for you see my affliction,

you know how distressed I am. 

8 You did not hand me over to the enemy;

you set my feet where I can move freely. 

9 Show me favor, ADONAI, for I am in trouble.

My eyes grow dim with anger, my soul and body as well. 

10 For my life is worn out with sorrow and my years with sighing;

my strength gives out under my guilt, and my bones are wasting away. 

11 I am scorned by all my adversaries, and even more by my neighbors;

even to acquaintances I am an object of fear when they see me in the street,

they turn away from me. 

12 Like a dead man, I have passed from their minds;

I have become like a broken pot. 

13 All I hear is whispering, terror is all around me;

they plot together against me, scheming to take my life.

14 But I, I trust in you, ADONAI; I say, “You are my God.” 

15 My times are in your hand;

rescue me from my enemies’ power, from those who persecute me. 

16 Make your face shine on your servant;

in your grace, save me. 

17 ADONAI, don’t let me be put to shame,

for I have called on you;

let the wicked be put to shame, l

et them be silenced in Sh’ol. 

18 May lying lips be struck dumb,

that speak insolently against the righteous with such pride and contempt. 

19 But oh, how great is your goodness,

which you have stored up for those who fear you,

which you do for those who take refuge in you, before people’s very eyes! 

20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them from human plots,

you conceal them in your shelter, safe from contentious tongues. 

21 Blessed be ADONAI!

For he has shown me his amazing grace when I was in a city under siege. 

22 As for me, in my alarm I said, “I have been cut off from your sight!

“Nevertheless, you heard my pleas when I cried out to you. 

23 Love ADONAI, you faithful of his.

ADONAI preserves the loyal, but the proud he repays in full. 

24 Be strong, and fill your hearts with courage,

all of you who hope in ADONAI.

PSALMS: 91

1 You who live in the shelter of ‘Elyon,

who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai, 

2 who say to ADONAI,

“My refuge!

My fortress!

My God, in whom I trust!” 

3 he will rescue you from the trap of the hunter and from the plague of calamities; 

4 he will cover you with his pinions,

and under his wings you will find refuge;

his truth is a shield and protection. 

5 You will not fear the terrors of night or the arrow that flies by day, 

6 or the plague that roams in the dark,

or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon. 

7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand;

but it won’t come near you. 

8 Only keep your eyes open, and you will see how the wicked are punished. 

9 For you have made ADONAI, the Most High,

who is my refuge, your dwelling-place. 

10 No disaster will happen to you,

no calamity will come near your tent; 

11 for he will order his angels to care for you and guard you wherever you go. 

12 They will carry you in their hands,

so that you won’t trip on a stone. 

13 You will tread down lions and snakes,

young lions and serpents you will trample underfoot. 

14 “Because he loves me, I will rescue him;

because he knows my name, I will protect him. 

15 He will call on me, and I will answer him.

I will be with him when he is in trouble.

I will extricate him and bring him honor. 

16 I will satisfy him with long life and show him my salvation.”

PSALMS: 121

1 A song of ascents:

If I raise my eyes to the hills,

from where will my help come? 

2 My help comes from ADONAI,

the maker of heaven and earth. 

3 He will not let your foot slip -your guardian is not asleep. 

4 No, the guardian of Isra’el never slumbers or sleeps.

5 ADONAI is your guardian; at your right hand

ADONAI provides you with shade 

6 the sun can’t strike you during the day or even the moon at night. 

7 ADONAI will guard you against all harm;

he will guard your life. 

8 ADONAI will guard your coming and going from now on and forever.

PROVERBS: 1

1 The proverbs of Shlomo the son of David, king of Isra’el, 

2 are for learning about wisdom and discipline; f

or understanding words expressing deep insight; 

3 for gaining an intelligently disciplined life,

doing what is right, just and fair; 

4 for endowing with caution those who don’t think and the

young person with knowledge and discretion.

5 Someone who is already wise will hear and learn still more;

someone who already understands will gain the ability to counsel well;

6 he will understand proverbs, obscure expressions,

the sayings and riddles of the wise. 

7 The fear of ADONAI is the beginning of knowledge,

but fools despise wisdom and discipline. 

8 My son, heed the discipline of your father,

and do not abandon the teaching of your mother; 

9 they will be a garland to grace your head,

a medal of honor for your neck. 

10 My son, if sinners entice you,

don’t go along with them. 

11 Suppose they say, “Come with us:

we’ll ambush somebody and kill him,

we’ll waylay some harmless soul, just for fun;

12 we’ll swallow him alive, like Sh’ol, whole,

like those who descend to the pit; 

13 we’ll find everything he has of value,

we’ll fill our homes with loot! 

14 Throw in your lot with us;

we’ll share a common purse”- 

15 my son, don’t go along with them,

don’t set foot on their path; 

16 Their feet run to evil, they rush to shed blood. 

17 For in vain is the net baited if any bird can see it; 

18 rather, they are ambushing themselves

to shed their own blood, waylaying themselves. 

19 So are the ways of all greedy for gain -it takes the lives of those who get it. 

20 Wisdom calls aloud in the open air and raises her voice in the public places; 

21 she calls out at streetcorners and speaks out at entrances to city gates: 

22 “How long, you whose lives have no purpose,

will you love thoughtless living?

How long will scorners find pleasure in mocking?

How long will fools hate knowledge? 

23 Repent when I reprove -I will pour out my spirit to you,

I will make my words known to you. 

24 Because you refused when I called,

and no one paid attention when I put out my hand, 

25 but instead you neglected my counsel and would not accept my reproof; 

26 I, in turn, will laugh at your distress,

and mock when terror comes over you 

27 yes, when terror overtakes you like a storm and your disaster approaches like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble assail you. 

28 Then they will call me, but I won’t answer;

they will seek me earnestly, but they won’t find me. 

29 Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of ADONAI, 

30 they refused my counsel and despised my reproof. 

31 So they will bear the consequences of their own way

and be overfilled with their own schemes. 

32 For the aimless wandering of the thoughtless will kill them,

and the smug overconfidence of fools will destroy them; 

33 but those who pay attention to me will live securely,

untroubled by fear of misfortune.”

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 1:1 – 3:26

1:1 There was a man in the land of `Utz, whose name was Iyov. That man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God, and turned away from evil. 2 There were born to him seven sons and three daughters. 3 His possessions also were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred she-donkeys, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the children of the east. 4 His sons went and held a feast in the house of each one on his birthday; and they sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. 5 It was so, when the days of their feasting had run their course, that Iyov sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Iyov said, “It may be that my sons have sinned, and renounced God in their hearts.” Thus did Iyov continually. 6 Now it happened on the day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, that Hasatan also came among them. 7 The LORD said to Hasatan, “Where have you come from?” Then Hasatan answered the LORD, and said, “From going back and forth in the eretz, and from walking up and down in it.” 8 The LORD said to Hasatan, “Have you considered my servant, Iyov? For there is none like him in the eretz, a blameless and an upright man, one who fears God, and turns away from evil.” 9Then Hasatan answered the LORD, and said, “Does Iyov fear God for nothing? 10 Haven’t you made a hedge around him, and around his house, and around all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11 But put forth your hand now, and touch all that he has, and he will renounce you to your face.” 12 The LORD said to Hasatan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power. Only on himself don’t put forth your hand.” So Hasatan went forth from the presence of the LORD. 13 It fell on a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother’s house, 14 that there came a messenger to Iyov, and said, “The oxen were plowing, and the donkeys feeding beside them, 15 and the Seva’im attacked, and took them away. Yes, they have killed the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” 16 While he was still speaking, there also came another, and said, “The fire of God has fallen from the sky, and has burned up the sheep and the servants, and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” 17 While he was still speaking, there came also another, and said, “The Kasdim made three bands, and swept down on the camels, and have taken them away, yes, and killed the servants with the edge of the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell you.” 18 While he was still speaking, there came also another, and said, “Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother’s house, 19 and, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young men, and they are dead. I alone have escaped to tell you.” 20 Then Iyov arose, and tore his robe, and shaved his head, and fell down on the ground, and worshiped. 21 He said, “Naked I came out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD.” 22 In all this, Iyov did not sin, nor charge God with wrongdoing.

2:1 Again it happened on the day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, that Hasatan came also among them to present himself before the LORD. 2 The LORD said to Hasatan, “Where have you come from?” Hasatan answered the LORD, and said, “From going back and forth in the eretz, and from walking up and down in it.” 3 The LORD said to Hasatan, “Have you considered my servant Iyov? For there is none like him in the eretz, a blameless and an upright man, one who fears God, and turns away from evil. He still maintains his integrity, although you incited me against him, to ruin him without cause.” 4 Hasatan answered the LORD, and said, “Skin for skin. Yes, all that a man has will he give for his life. 5 But put forth your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will renounce you to your face.” 6 The LORD said to Hasatan, “Behold, he is in your hand. Only spare his life.” 7 So Hasatan went forth from the presence of the LORD, and struck Iyov with painful sores from the sole of his foot to his head. 8 He took for himself a potsherd to scrape himself with, and he sat among the ashes. 9 Then his wife said to him, “Do you still maintain your integrity? Renounce God, and die.” 10 But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women would speak. What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?” In all this Iyov didn’t sin with his lips. 11 Now when Iyov’s three friends heard of all this evil that had come on him, they each came from his own place: Elifaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuchite, and Tzofar the Na`amatite, and they made an appointment together to come to sympathize with him and to comfort him. 12 When they lifted up their eyes from a distance, and didn’t recognize him, they raised their voices, and wept; and they each tore his robe, and sprinkled dust on their heads toward the sky. 13 So they sat down with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spoke a word to him, for they saw that his grief was very great.

3:1 After this Iyov opened his mouth, and cursed the day of his birth. 2 Iyov answered: 3 “Let the day perish in which I was born, The night which said, ‘There is a man-child conceived.’ 4 Let that day be darkness; Don’t let God from above seek for it, Neither let the light shine on it. 5 Let darkness and the shadow of death claim it for their own. Let a cloud dwell on it. Let all that makes black the day terrify it. 6 As for that night, let thick darkness seize on it. Let it not rejoice among the days of the year. Let it not come into the number of the months. 7 Behold, let that night be barren. Let no joyful voice come therein. 8 Let them curse it who curse the day, Who are ready to rouse up livyatan. 9 Let the stars of the twilight of it be dark. Let it look for light, but have none, Neither let it see the eyelids of the morning, 10 Because it didn’t shut up the doors of my mother’s womb, Nor did it hide trouble from my eyes. 11 “Why didn’t I die from the womb? Why didn’t I give up the spirit when my mother bore me?12 Why did the knees receive me? Or why the breast, that I should suck? 13 For now should I have lain down and been quiet. I should have slept, then I would have been at rest, 14 With kings and counselors of the eretz, Who built up waste places for themselves; 15 Or with princes who had gold, Who filled their houses with silver: 16 Or as a hidden untimely birth I had not been, As infants who never saw light. 17 There the wicked cease from troubling; There the weary are at rest. 18 There the prisoners are at ease together. They don’t hear the voice of the taskmaster. 19 The small and the great are there. The servant is free from his master. 20“Why is light given to him who is in misery, Life to the bitter in soul, 21 Who long for death, but it doesn’t come; Dig for it more than for hidden treasures, 22Who rejoice exceedingly, Are glad, when they can find the grave? 23 Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, Whom God has hedged in? 24 For my sighing comes before I eat, My groanings are poured out like water. 25 For the thing which I fear comes on me, That which I am afraid of comes to me. 26 I am not at ease, neither am I quiet, neither have I rest; But trouble comes.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 14:1 – 17

14:1 Follow after love, and earnestly desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 

2 For he who speaks in another language speaks not to men, but to God; for no one understands; but in the spirit he speaks mysteries. 

3 But he who prophesies speaks to men for their edification, exhortation, and consolation. 

4 He who speaks in another language edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the assembly. 

5 Now I desire to have you all speak with other languages, but rather that you would prophesy. For he is greater who prophesies than he who speaks with other languages, unless he interprets, that the assembly may be built up. 

6 But now, brothers, if I come to you speaking with other languages, what would I profit you, unless I speak to you either by way of revelation, or of knowledge, or of prophesying, or of teaching? 

7 Even things without life, giving a voice, whether pipe or harp, if they didn’t give a distinction in the sounds, how would it be known what is piped or harped? 

8 For if the shofar gave an uncertain sound, who would prepare himself for war?

9 So also you, unless you uttered by the tongue words easy to understand, how would it be known what is spoken? For you would be speaking into the air. 

10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of sounds in the world, and none of them is without meaning. 

11 If then I don’t know the meaning of the sound, I would be to him who speaks a foreigner, and he who speaks would be a foreigner to me. 

12 So also you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, seek that you may abound to the building up of the assembly. 

13 Therefore let him who speaks in another language pray that he may interpret. 

14 For if I pray in another language, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. 

15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also. I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. 

16 Else if you bless with the spirit, how will he who fills the place of the unlearned say the “Amein” at your giving of thanks, seeing he doesn’t know what you say? 

17 For you most assuredly give thanks well, but the other person is not built up.
