AUGUST 10

PSALMS: 10, 40, 70, 100, 130

PROVERBS: 10

OLD TESTAMENT: LAMENTATIONS 3:1 – 66

NEW TESTAMENT: HEBREWS 1:1 – 14

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: LAMENTATIONS 3:1 – 66

3:1 I am the man that has seen affliction by the rod of his wrath. 

2 He has led me and caused me to walk in darkness, and not in light.

3 Surely against me he turns his hand again and again all the day.

4 My flesh and my skin has he made old; he has broken my bones.

5 He has built against me, and compassed me with gall and travail.

6 He has made me to dwell in dark places, as those that have been long dead. 

7 He has walled me about, that I can’t go forth; he has made my chain heavy. 

8 Yes, when I cry, and call for help, he shuts out my prayer. 

9 He has walled up my ways with hewn stone; he has made my paths crooked. 

10 He is to me as a bear lying in wait, as a lion in secret places. 

11 He has turned aside my ways, and pulled me in pieces; he has made me desolate. 

12 He has bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow. 

13 He has caused the shafts of his quiver to enter into my reins. 

14 I am become a derision to all my people, and their song all the day. 

15 He has filled me with bitterness, he has sated me with wormwood. 

16 He has also broken my teeth with gravel stones; he has covered me with ashes. 

17 You have removed my soul far off from shalom; I forgot prosperity. 

18 I said, My strength is perished, and my expectation from the LORD. 

19 Remember my affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. 

20 My soul still remembers them, and is bowed down within me. 

21 This I recall to my mind; therefore have I hope. 

22 [It is of] the LORD’s lovingkindnesses that we are not consumed, because his compassion doesn’t fail. 

23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 

24 The LORD is my portion, says my soul; therefore will I hope in him. 

25 The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him. 

26 It is good that a man should hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. 

27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.

28 Let him sit alone and keep silence, because he has laid it on him. 

29 Let him put his mouth in the dust, if so be there may be hope. 

30 Let him give his cheek to him who strikes him; let him be filled full with reproach. 

31 For the Lord will not cast off forever. 

32 For though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses. 

33 For he does not afflict willingly, nor grieve the children of men. 

34 To crush under foot all the prisoners of the eretz, 

35 To turn aside the right of a man before the face of Ha`Elyon, 

36 To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord doesn’t approve. 

37 Who is he who says, and it comes to pass, when the Lord doesn’t command it? 

38 Doesn’t evil and good come out of the mouth of Ha`Elyon? 

39 Why does a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins? 

40 Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD. 

41 Let us lift up our heart with our hands to God in the heavens. 

42 We have transgressed and have rebelled; you have not pardoned. 

43 You have covered with anger and pursued us; you have killed, you have not pitied. 

44 You have covered yourself with a cloud, so that no prayer can pass through. 

45 You have made us an off-scouring and refuse in the midst of the peoples. 

46 All our enemies have opened their mouth wide against us. 

47 Fear and the pit are come on us, devastation and destruction. 

48 My eye runs down with streams of water, for the destruction of the daughter of my people. 

49 My eye pours down, and doesn’t cease, without any intermission, 

50 Until the LORD look down, and see from heaven. 

51 My eye affects my soul, because of all the daughters of my city. 

52 They have chased me sore like a bird, those who are my enemies without cause. 

53 They have cut off my life in the dungeon, and have cast a stone on me. 

54 Waters flowed over my head; I said, I am cut off. 

55 I called on your name, LORD, out of the lowest dungeon. 

56 You heard my voice; don’t hide your ear at my breathing, at my cry. 

57 You drew near in the day that I called on you; you said, Don’t be afraid. 

58 Lord, you have pleaded the causes of my soul; you have redeemed my life. 

59 LORD, you have seen my wrong; judge you my cause. 

60 You have seen all their vengeance and all their devices against me. 

61 You have heard their reproach, LORD, and all their devices against me,

62 The lips of those that rose up against me, and their device against me all the day. 

63 See you their sitting down, and their rising up; I am their song. 

64 You will render to them a recompense, LORD, according to the work of their hands. 

65 You will give them hardness of heart, your curse to them. 

66 You will pursue them in anger, and destroy them from under the heavens of the LORD.

NEW TESTAMENT: HEBREWS 1:1 – 14

1:1 God, having in the past spoken to the fathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 

2 has at the end of these days spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds. 

3 His Son is the radiance of his glory, the very image of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself made purification for our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 

4 having become so much better than the angels, as he has inherited a more excellent name than they have. 

5 For to which of the angels did he say at any time, “You are my Son, Today have I become your father?” and again, “I will be to him a Father, And he will be to me a Son?” 

6 When he again brings in the firstborn into the world he says, “Let all the angels of God worship him.” 

7 Of the angels he says, “Who makes his angels winds, And his servants a flame of fire.” 

8 but of the Son he says, “Your throne, God, is forever and ever; The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.

9 You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; Therefore God, your God, has anointed you With the oil of gladness above your fellows.” 

10 And, “You, Lord, in the beginning, laid the foundation of the eretz. The heavens are the works of your hands. 

11 They will perish, but you continue. They all will grow old like a garment does.

12 As a mantle you will roll them up. And they will be changed. But you are the same. Your years will not fail.” 

13 But of which of the angels has he said at any time, “Sit at my right hand, Until I make your enemies the footstool of your feet?” 

14 Aren’t they all ministering spirits, sent forth to do service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?

AUGUST 9

PSALMS: 9, 39, 69, 99, 129

PROVERBS: 9

OLD TESTAMENT: LAMENTATIONS 1:1 – 2:22

NEW TESTAMENT: PHILEMON 1:1 – 25

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: LAMENTATIONS 1:1 – 2:22

1:1 How does the city sit solitary, that was full of people! She has become as a widow, who was great among the nations! She who was a princess among the provinces is become tributary! 2 She weeps sore in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks; Among all her lovers she has none to comfort her: All her friends have dealt treacherously with her; they are become her enemies. 3 Yehudah is gone into captivity because of affliction, and because of great servitude; She dwells among the nations, she finds no rest: All her persecutors overtook her within the straits. 4 The ways of Tziyon do mourn, because none come to the solemn assembly; All her gates are desolate, her Kohanim do sigh: Her virgins are afflicted, and she herself is in bitterness. 5 Her adversaries are become the head, her enemies prosper; For the LORD has afflicted her for the multitude of her transgressions: Her young children are gone into captivity before the adversary. 6 From the daughter of Tziyon all her majesty is departed: Her princes are become like harts that find no pasture, They are gone without strength before the pursuer. 7 Yerushalayim remembers in the days of her affliction and of her miseries all her pleasant things that were from the days of old: When her people fell into the hand of the adversary, and none did help her, The adversaries saw her, they did mock at her desolations. 8 Yerushalayim has grievously sinned; therefore she is become as an unclean thing; All who honored her despise her, because they have seen her nakedness: Yes, she sighs, and turns backward. 9 Her filthiness was in her skirts; she didn’t remember her latter end; Therefore is she come down wonderfully; she has no comforter: See, LORD, my affliction; for the enemy has magnified himself. 10 The adversary has spread out his hand on all her pleasant things: For she has seen that the nations are entered into her sanctuary, Concerning whom you did command that they should not enter into your assembly. 11 All her people sigh, they seek bread; They have given their pleasant things for food to refresh the soul: Look, LORD, and see; for I am become abject. 12 Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by? Look, and see if there be any sorrow like my sorrow, which is brought on me, With which the LORD has afflicted [me] in the day of his fierce anger. 13 From on high has he sent fire into my bones, and it prevails against them; He has spread a net for my feet, he has turned me back: He has made me desolate and faint all the day. 14 The yoke of my transgressions is bound by his hand; They are knit together, they are come up on my neck; he has made my strength to fail: The Lord has delivered me into their hands, against whom I am not able to stand.15 The Lord has set at nothing all my mighty men in the midst of me; He has called a solemn assembly against me to crush my young men: The Lord has trodden as in a winepress the virgin daughter of Yehudah. 16 For these things I weep; my eye, my eye runs down with water; Because the comforter who should refresh my soul is far from me: My children are desolate, because the enemy has prevailed. 17 Tziyon spreads forth her hands; there is none to comfort her; The LORD has commanded concerning Ya`akov, that those who are round about him should be his adversaries: Yerushalayim is among them as an unclean thing. 18 The LORD is righteous; for I have rebelled against his mitzvah: Please hear all you peoples, and see my sorrow: My virgins and my young men are gone into captivity. 19 I called for my lovers, [but] they deceived me: My Kohanim and my Zakenim gave up the spirit in the city, While they sought them food to refresh their souls. 20 See, LORD; for I am in distress; my heart is troubled; My heart is turned within me; for I have grievously rebelled: Abroad the sword bereaves, at home there is as death. 21 They have heard that I sigh; there is none to comfort me; All my enemies have heard of my trouble; they are glad that you have done it: You will bring the day that you have proclaimed, and they shall be like me. 22 Let all their wickedness come before you; Do to them, as you have done to me for all my transgressions: For my sighs are many, and my heart is faint.

2:1 How has the Lord covered the daughter of Tziyon with a cloud in his anger! He has cast down from heaven to the eretz the beauty of Yisra’el, And hasn’t remembered his footstool in the day of his anger. 2 The Lord has swallowed up all the habitations of Ya`akov, and has not pitied: He has thrown down in his wrath the strongholds of the daughter of Yehudah; He has brought them down to the ground; he has profaned the kingdom and the princes of it. 3 He has cut off in fierce anger all the horn of Yisra’el; He has drawn back his right hand from before the enemy: He has burned up Ya`akov like a flaming fire, which devours round about. 4 He has bent his bow like an enemy, he has stood with his right hand as an adversary, Has killed all that were pleasant to the eye: In the tent of the daughter of Tziyon he has poured out his wrath like fire. 5 The Lord is become as an enemy, he has swallowed up Yisra’el; He has swallowed up all her palaces, he has destroyed his strongholds; He has multiplied in the daughter of Yehudah mourning and lamentation. 6 He has violently taken away his tent, as if it were of a garden; he has destroyed his place of assembly: The LORD has caused solemn assembly and Shabbat to be forgotten in Tziyon, Has despised in the indignation of his anger the king and the Kohen. 7 The Lord has cast off his altar, he has abhorred his sanctuary; He has given up into the hand of the enemy the walls of her palaces: They have made a noise in the house of the LORD, as in the day of a solemn assembly. 8 The LORD has purposed to destroy the wall of the daughter of Tziyon; He has stretched out the line, he has not withdrawn his hand from destroying; He has made the rampart and wall to lament; they languish together. 9 Her gates are sunk into the ground; he has destroyed and broken her bars: Her king and her princes are among the nations where the law is not; Yes, her prophets find no vision from the LORD. 10 The Zakenim of the daughter of Tziyon sit on the ground, they keep silence; They have cast up dust on their heads; they have girded themselves with sackcloth: The virgins of Yerushalayim hang down their heads to the ground. 11 My eyes do fail with tears, my heart is troubled; My liver is poured on the eretz, because of the destruction of the daughter of my people, Because the young children and the infants swoon in the streets of the city. 12 They tell their mothers, Where is grain and wine? When they swoon as the wounded in the streets of the city, When their soul is poured out into their mothers’ bosom. 13 What shall I testify to you? what shall I liken to you, daughter of Yerushalayim? What shall I compare to you, that I may comfort you, virgin daughter of Tziyon? For your breach is great like the sea: who can heal you? 14 Your prophets have seen for you false and foolish visions; They have not uncovered your iniquity, to bring back your captivity, But have seen for you false oracles and causes of banishment. 15 All that pass by clap their hands at you; They hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Yerushalayim, [saying], Is this the city that men called The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole eretz? 16 All your enemies have opened their mouth wide against you; They hiss and gnash the teeth; they say, We have swallowed her up; Certainly this is the day that we looked for; we have found, we have seen it. 17  The LORD has done that which he purposed; he has fulfilled his word that he commanded in the days of old; He has thrown down, and has not pitied: He has caused the enemy to rejoice over you; he has exalted the horn of your adversaries. 18 Their heart cried to the Lord: wall of the daughter of Tziyon, let tears run down like a river day and night; Give yourself no respite; don’t let the apple of your eye cease. 19 Arise, cry out in the night, at the beginning of the watches; Pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord: Lift up your hands toward him for the life of your young children, that faint for hunger at the head of every street. 20 Look, LORD, and see to whom you have done thus! Shall the women eat their fruit, the children that are dandled in the hands? Shall the Kohen and the prophet be killed in the sanctuary of the Lord? 21 The youth and the old man lie on the ground in the streets; My virgins and my young men are fallen by the sword: You have killed them in the day of your anger; you have slaughtered, [and] not pitied. 22 You have called, as in the day of a solemn assembly, my terrors on every side; There was none that escaped or remained in the day of the LORD’s anger: Those that I have dandled and brought up has my enemy consumed.

NEW TESTAMENT: PHILEMON 1:1 – 25

1:1 Sha’ul, a prisoner of Messiah Yeshua, and Timothy our brother, to Philemon, our beloved fellow worker, 

2 to the beloved Apphia, to Archippus, our fellow soldier, and to the assembly in your house: 

3 Grace to you and shalom from God our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah. 

4 I thank my God always, making mention of you in my prayers, 

5 hearing of your love, and of the faith which you have toward the Lord Yeshua, and toward all the holy ones; 

6 that the fellowship of your faith may become effective, in the knowledge of every good thing which is in us, in Messiah Yeshua. 

7 For we have much joy and comfort in your love, because the hearts of the holy ones have been refreshed through you, brother. 

8 Therefore, though I have all boldness in Messiah to command you that which is appropriate, 

9 yet for love’s sake I rather beg, being such a one as Sha’ul, the aged, and now a prisoner also of Messiah Yeshua. 

10 I beg you for my child, whom I have fathered in my bonds, Onesimus,

11 who once was useless to you, but now is useful to you and to me; 

12 I am sending him back. You therefore receive him, that is, my own heart, 

13 whom I wanted to keep with me, that in your behalf he might minister to me in the bonds of the Good News. 

14 But I was willing to do nothing without your consent, that your goodness would not be as of necessity, but of free will. 

15 For perhaps he was therefore separated from you for a while, that you would have him forever, 

16 no longer as a slave, but more than a slave, a beloved brother, specially to me, but how much rather to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord. 

17 If then you count me a partner, receive him as you would receive me. 

18 But if he has wronged you at all, or owes you anything, put that to my account. 

19 I, Sha’ul, write this with my own hand: I will repay it (not to mention to you that you owe to me even your own self besides). 

20 Yes, brother, let me have joy from you in the Lord. Refresh my heart in the Lord. 

21 Having confidence in your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even beyond what I say. 

22 Also, prepare a guest room for me, for I hope that through your prayers I will be restored to you. 

23Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Messiah Yeshua, greets you, 

24 as do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my fellow workers. 

25 The grace of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah be with your spirit. Amein.

AUGUST 8

PSALMS: 8, 38, 68, 98, 128

PROVERBS: 8

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 51:54 – 52:324

NEW TESTAMENT: TITUS 3:1 – 15

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: JEREMIAH 51:54 – 52:324

51:54 The sound of a cry from Bavel, and of great destruction from the land of the Kasdim! 55 For the LORD lays Bavel waste, and destroys out of her the great voice; and their waves roar like many waters; the noise of their voice is uttered: 56 for the destroyer is come on her, even on Bavel, and her mighty men are taken, their bows are broken in pieces; for the LORD is a God of recompenses, he will surely requite. 57 I will make drunk her princes and her wise men, her governors and her deputies, and her mighty men; and they shall sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake up, says the King, whose name is the LORD of Hosts. 58 Thus says the LORD of hosts: The broad walls of Bavel shall be utterly overthrown, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the peoples shall labor for vanity, and the nations for the fire; and they shall be weary. 59 The word which Yirmeyahu the prophet commanded Serayah the son of Neriyah, the son of Mechaseyah, when he went with Tzidkiyahu the king of Yehudah to Bavel in the fourth year of his reign. Now Serayah was chief chamberlain. 60 Yirmeyahu wrote in a book all the evil that should come on Bavel, even all these words that are written concerning Bavel. 61Yirmeyahu said to Serayah, When you come to Bavel, then see that you read all these words, 62 and say, LORD, you have spoken concerning this place, to cut it off, that none shall dwell therein, neither man nor animal, but that it shall be desolate forever. 63 It shall be, when you have made an end of reading this book, that you shall bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst of the Perat: 64 and you shall say, Thus shall Bavel sink, and shall not rise again because of the evil that I will bring on her; and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Yirmeyahu.

52:1 Tzidkiyahu was twenty-one years old when he began to reign; and he reigned eleven years in Yerushalayim: and his mother’s name was Hamutal the daughter of Yirmeyahu of Livna. 2 He did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that Yehoiakim had done. 3 For through the anger of the LORD did it happen in Yerushalayim and Yehudah, until he had cast them out from his presence. Tzidkiyahu rebelled against the king of Bavel. 4 It happened in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, that Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel came, he and all his army, against Yerushalayim, and encamped against it; and they built forts against it round about. 5 So the city was besieged to the eleventh year of king Tzidkiyahu. 6 In the fourth month, in the ninth day of the month, the famine was sore in the city, so that there was no bread for the people of the land. 7 Then a breach was made in the city, and all the men of war fled, and went forth out of the city by night by the way of the gate between the two walls, which was by the king’s garden; (now the Kasdim were against the city round about;) and they went toward the `Aravah. 8 But the army of the Kasdim pursued after the king, and overtook Tzidkiyahu in the plains of Yericho; and all his army was scattered from him. 9 Then they took the king, and carried him up to the king of Bavel to Rivlah in the land of Hamat; and he gave judgment on him. 10 The king of Bavel killed the sons of Tzidkiyahu before his eyes: he killed also all the princes of Yehudah in Rivlah. 11 He put out the eyes of Tzidkiyahu; and the king of Bavel bound him in fetters, and carried him to Bavel, and put him in prison until the day of his death. 12 Now in the fifth month, in the tenth day of the month, which was the nineteenth year of king Nevukhadretztzar, king of Bavel, came Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard, who stood before the king of Bavel, into Yerushalayim: 13 and he burned the house of the LORD, and the king’s house; and all the houses of Yerushalayim, even every great house, burned he with fire. 14 All the army of the Kasdim, who were with the captain of the guard, broke down all the walls of Yerushalayim round about. 15 Then Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard carried away captive of the poorest of the people, and the residue of the people who were left in the city, and those who fell away, who fell to the king of Bavel, and the residue of the multitude. 16 But Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard left of the poorest of the land to be vineyard keepers and farmers. 17  The pillars of brass that were in the house of the LORD, and the bases and the brazen sea that were in the house of the LORD, did the Kasdim break in pieces, and carried all the brass of them to Bavel. 18 The pots also, and the shovels, and the snuffers, and the basins, and the spoons, and all the vessels of brass with which they ministered, took they away. 19 The cups, and the fire pans, and the basins, and the pots, and the menorot, and the spoons, and the bowls-that which was of gold, in gold, and that which was of silver, in silver,-the captain of the guard took away. 20 The two pillars, the one sea, and the twelve brazen bulls that were under the bases, which king Shlomo had made for the house of the LORD. The brass of all these vessels was without weight. 21 As for the pillars, the height of the one pillar was eighteen cubits; and a line of twelve cubits did compass it; and the thickness of it was four fingers: it was hollow. 22 A capital of brass was on it; and the height of the one capital was five cubits, with network and pomegranates on the capital round about, all of brass: and the second pillar also had like these, and pomegranates. 23 There were ninety-six pomegranates on the sides; all the pomegranates were one hundred on the network round about. 24The captain of the guard took Serayah the chief Kohen, and Tzefanyah the second Kohen, and the three keepers of the threshold: 25 and out of the city he took an officer who was set over the men of war; and seven men of those who saw the king’s face, who were found in the city; and the Sofer of the captain of the host, who mustered the people of the land; and sixty men of the people of the land, who were found in the midst of the city. 26 Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard took them, and brought them to the king of Bavel to Rivlah. 27 The king of Bavel struck them, and put them to death at Rivlah in the land of Hamat. So Yehudah was carried away captive out of his land. 28 This is the people whom Nevukhadretztzar carried away captive: in the seventh year three thousand twenty-three Yehudim; 29 in the eighteenth year of Nevukhadretztzar he carried away captive from Yerushalayim eight hundred thirty-two persons; 30 in the three and twentieth year of Nevukhadretztzar Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard carried away captive of the Yehudim seven hundred forty-five persons: all the persons were four thousand and six hundred. 31 It happened in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Yehoiakim king of Yehudah, in the twelfth month, in the five and twentieth day of the month, that Evil-Merodakh king of Bavel, in the [first] year of his reign, lifted up the head of Yehoiakim king of Yehudah, and brought him forth out of prison; 32 and he spoke kindly to him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings who were with him in Bavel, 33 and changed his prison garments. [Yehoiakim] ate bread before him continually all the days of his life: 34 and for his allowance, there was a continual allowance given him by the king of Bavel, every day a portion until the day of his death, all the days of his life.

NEW TESTAMENT: TITUS 3:1 – 15

1 Remind them to be in subjection to rulers and to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to every good work, 

2 to speak evil of no one, not to be contentious, to be gentle, showing all humility toward all men. 

3 For we were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 

4 But when the kindness of God, our Savior, and his love toward man, appeared, 

5 not by works of righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy, he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Ruach HaKodesh, 

6 which he poured out on us richly, through Yeshua the Messiah, our Savior; 

7 that, being justified by his grace, we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 

8 This saying is faithful, and concerning these things I desire that you affirm confidently, to the end that they who have believed God may be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men; 

9 but shun foolish questionings, genealogies, strife, and disputes about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. 

10 Avoid a factious man after a first and second warning; 

11 knowing that such a one is perverted, and sins, being self-condemned. 

12 When I send Artemas to you, or Tychicus, be diligent to come to me to Nicopolis, for I have determined to winter there. 

13 Send Zenas, the lawyer, and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing may be lacking for them. 

14 Let our people also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they may not be unfruitful. 

15 All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in faith. Grace be with you all. Amein.

AUGUST 7

PSALMS: 7, 37, 67, 97, 127

PROVERBS: 7

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 51:1 – 53

NEW TESTAMENT: TITUS 2:1 – 15

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: JEREMIAH 51:1 – 53

51:1 Thus says the LORD: Behold, I will raise up against Bavel, and against those who dwell in Lev-Kamai, a destroying wind. 

2 I will send to Bavel strangers, who shall winnow her; and they shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about. 

3 Against [him who] bends let the archer bend his bow, and against [him who] lifts himself up in his coat of mail: and don’t you spare her young men; destroy you utterly all her host. 

4 They shall fall down slain in the land of the Kasdim, and thrust through in her streets. 

5 For Yisra’el is not forsaken, nor Yehudah, of his God, of the LORD of Hosts; though their land is full of guilt against the Holy One of Yisra’el. 

6 Flee out of the midst of Bavel, and save every man his life; don’t be cut off in her iniquity: for it is the time of the LORD’s vengeance; he will render to her a recompense. 

7 Bavel has been a golden cup in the LORD’s hand, who made all the eretz drunken: the nations have drunk of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. 

8 Bavel is suddenly fallen and destroyed: wail for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed. 

9 We would have healed Bavel, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go everyone into his own country; for her judgment reaches to heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies. 

10 The LORD has brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Tziyon the work of the LORD our God. 

11 Make sharp the arrows; hold firm the shields: the LORD has stirred up the spirit of the kings of the Madai; because his purpose is against Bavel, to destroy it: for it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance of his temple. 

12 Set up a standard against the walls of Bavel, make the watch strong, set the watchmen, prepare the ambushes; for the LORD has both purposed and done that which he spoke concerning the inhabitants of Bavel. 

13 You who dwell on many waters, abundant in treasures, your end is come, the measure of your covetousness. 

14 The LORD of Hosts has sworn by himself, [saying], Surely I will fill you with men, as with the canker-worm; and they shall lift up a shout against you. 

15 He has made the eretz by his power, he has established the world by his wisdom, and by his understanding has he stretched out the heavens: 

16 when he utters his voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and he causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the eretz; he makes lightnings for the rain, and brings forth the wind out of his treasuries. 

17 Every man is become brutish [and is] without knowledge; every goldsmith is put to shame by his image; for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. 

18 They are vanity, a work of delusion: in the time of their visitation they shall perish. 

19 The portion of Ya`akov is not like these; for he is the former of all things; and [Yisra’el] is the tribe of his inheritance: the LORD of Hosts is his name.

20 You are my battle-ax and weapons of war: and with you will I break in pieces the nations; and with you will I destroy kingdoms; 

21 and with you will I break in pieces the horse and his rider; 

22 and with you will I break in pieces the chariot and him who rides therein; and with you will I break in pieces man and woman; and with you will I break in pieces the old man and the youth; and with you will I break in pieces the young man and the virgin; 

23 and with you will I break in pieces the shepherd and his flock; and with you will I break in pieces the farmer and his yoke [of oxen]; and with you will I break in pieces governors and deputies. 

24 I will render to Bavel and to all the inhabitants of Kasdim all their evil that they have done in Tziyon in your sight, says the LORD. 

25 Behold, I am against you, destroying mountain, says the LORD, which destroy all the eretz; and I will stretch out my hand on you, and roll you down from the rocks, and will make you a burnt mountain. 

26 They shall not take of you a stone for a corner, nor a stone for foundations; but you shall be desolate for ever, says the LORD. 

27 Set up a standard in the land, blow the shofar among the nations, prepare the nations against her, call together against her the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz: appoint a marshal against her; cause the horses to come up as the rough canker-worm. 

28 Prepare against her the nations, the kings of the Madai, the governors of it, and all the deputies of it, and all the land of their dominion. 

29 The land trembles and is in pain; for the purposes of the LORD against Bavel do stand, to make the land of Bavel a desolation, without inhabitant. 

30 The mighty men of Bavel have forborne to fight, they remain in their strongholds; their might has failed; they are become as women: her dwelling-places are set on fire; her bars are broken. 

31 One post shall run to meet another, and one messenger to met another, to show the king of Bavel that his city is taken on every quarter: 

32 and the passages are seized, and the reeds they have burned with fire, and the men of war are frightened.

33 For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Yisra’el: The daughter of Bavel is like a threshing floor at the time when it is trodden; yet a little while, and the time of harvest shall come for her.

34 Nevukhadretztzar the king of Bavel has devoured me, he has crushed me, he has made me an empty vessel, he has, like a monster, swallowed me up, he has filled his maw with my delicacies; he has cast me out. 

35 The violence done to me and to my flesh be on Bavel, shall the inhabitant of Tziyon say; and, My blood be on the inhabitants of Kasdim, shall Yerushalayim say. 

36 Therefore thus says the LORD: Behold, I will plead your cause, and take vengeance for you; and I will dry up her sea, and make her fountain dry. 

37Bavel shall become heaps, a dwelling-place for jackals, an astonishment, and a hissing, without inhabitant. 

38 They shall roar together like young lions; they shall growl as lions’ whelps. 

39 When they are heated, I will make their feast, and I will make them drunken, that they may rejoice, and sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, says the LORD. 

40 I will bring them down like lambs to the slaughter, like rams with male goats. 

41 How is Sheshakh taken! and the praise of the whole eretz seized! how is Bavel become a desolation among the nations! 

42 The sea is come up on Bavel; she is covered with the multitude of the waves of it. 

43 Her cities are become a desolation, a dry land, and a desert, a land in which no man dwells, neither does any son of man pass thereby. 

44 I will execute judgment on Bel in Bavel, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he has swallowed up; and the nations shall not flow any more to him: yes, the wall of Bavel shall fall. 

45 My people, go you out of the midst of her, and save yourselves every man from the fierce anger of the LORD. 

46 Don’t let your heart faint, neither fear for the news that shall be heard in the land; for news shall come one year, and after that in another year [shall come] news, and violence in the land, ruler against ruler. 

47 Therefore, behold, the days come, that I will execute judgment on the engraved images of Bavel; and her whole land shall be confounded; and all her slain shall fall in the midst of her.

48 Then the heavens and the eretz, and all that is therein, shall sing for joy over Bavel; for the destroyers shall come to her from the north, says the LORD. 

49 As Bavel has caused the slain of Yisra’el to fall, so at Bavel shall fall the slain of all the land. 

50 You who have escaped the sword, go you, don’t stand still; remember the LORD from afar, and let Yerushalayim come into your mind. 

51 We are confounded, because we have heard reproach; confusion has covered our faces: for strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the LORD’s house. 

52 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will execute judgment on her engraved images; and through all her land the wounded shall groan. 

53 Though Bavel should mount up to the sky, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall destroyers come to her, says the LORD.

NEW TESTAMENT: TITUS 2:1 – 15

2:1 But say the things which fit the sound doctrine, 

2 that older men should be temperate, sensible, sober-minded, sound in faith, in love, and in patience: 

3 and that older women likewise be reverent in behavior, not slanderers nor enslaved to much wine, teachers of that which is good; 

4 that they may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, 

5 to be sober-minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, being in subjection to their own husbands, that God’s word may not be blasphemed. 

6 Likewise, exhort the younger men to be sober-minded; 

7 in all things showing yourself an example of good works; in your teaching showing integrity, seriousness, incorruptibility, 

8 and soundness of speech that can’t be condemned; that he who opposes you may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say about us. 

9 Exhort servants to be in subjection to their own masters, and to be well-pleasing in all things; not contradicting; 

10 not stealing, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God, our Savior, in all things. 

11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 

12 instructing us to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we would live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world;

13 looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Savior, Yeshua the Messiah; 

14 who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify to himself a people for his own possession, zealous for good works. 

15 Say these things and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no man despise you.

AUGUST 6

PSALMS: 6, 36, 66, 96, 126

PROVERBS: 6

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 49:23 – 50:46

NEW TESTAMENT: TITUS 1:1 – 16

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: JEREMIAH 49:23 – 50:46

49:23 Of Dammesek. Hamat is confounded, and Arpad; for they have heard evil news, they are melted away: there is sorrow on the sea; it can’t be quiet. 24 Dammesek has grown feeble, she turns herself to flee, and trembling has seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken hold of her, as of a woman in travail. 25 How is the city of praise not forsaken, the city of my joy? 26 Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, and all the men of war shall be brought to silence in that day, says the LORD of Hosts. 27 I will kindle a fire in the wall of Dammesek, and it shall devour the palaces of Ben-Hadad. 28 Of Kedar, and of the kingdoms of Hatzor, which Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel struck. Thus says the LORD: Arise you, go up to Kedar, and destroy the children of the east. 29 Their tents and their flocks shall they take; they shall carry away for themselves their curtains, and all their vessels, and their camels; and they shall cry to them, Terror on every side! 30 Flee you, wander far off, dwell in the depths, you inhabitants of Hatzor, says the LORD; for Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel has taken counsel against you, and has conceived a purpose against you. 31 Arise, go up to a nation that is at ease, that dwells without care, says the LORD; that have neither gates nor bars, that dwell alone. 32 Their camels shall be a booty, and the multitude of their cattle a spoil: and I will scatter to all winds those who have the corners [of their hair] cut off; and I will bring their calamity from every side of them, says the LORD. 33 Hatzor shall be a dwelling-place of jackals, a desolation forever: no man shall dwell there, neither shall any son of man sojourn therein. 34 The word of the LORD that came to Yirmeyahu the prophet concerning `Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Tzidkiyahu king of Yehudah, saying, 35 Thus says the LORD of Hosts: Behold, I will break the bow of `Elam, the chief of their might. 36 On `Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of the sky, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation where the outcasts of `Elam shall not come. 37 I will cause `Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before those who seek their life; and I will bring evil on them, even my fierce anger, says the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them; 38 and I will set my throne in `Elam, and will destroy from there king and princes, says the LORD. 39 But it shall happen in the latter days, that I will bring back the captivity of `Elam, says the LORD.

50;1 The word that the LORD spoke concerning Bavel, concerning the land of the Kasdim, by Yirmeyahu the prophet. 2 Declare you among the nations and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and don’t conceal: say, Bavel is taken, Bel is put to shame, Merodakh is dismayed; her images are put to shame, her idols are dismayed. 3 For out of the north there comes up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they are fled, they are gone, both man and animal. 4 In those days, and in that time, says the LORD, the children of Yisra’el shall come, they and the children of Yehudah together; they shall go on their way weeping, and shall seek the LORD their God. 5 They shall inquire concerning Tziyon with their faces turned toward it, [saying], Come, and join yourselves to the LORD in an everlasting covenant that shall not be forgotten. 6 My people have been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray; they have turned them away on the mountains; they have gone from mountain to hill; they have forgotten their resting-place. 7 All who found them have devoured them; and their adversaries said, We are not guilty, because they have sinned against the LORD, the habitation of righteousness, even the LORD, the hope of their fathers. 8 Flee out of the midst of Bavel, and go forth out of the land of the Kasdim, and be as the male goats before the flocks. 9 For, behold, I will stir up and cause to come up against Bavel a company of great nations from the north country; and they shall set themselves in array against her; from there she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of an expert mighty man; none shall return in vain. 10 Kasdim shall be a prey: all who prey on her shall be satisfied, says the LORD. 11 Because you are glad, because you rejoice, O you who plunder my heritage, because you are wanton as a heifer that treads out [the grain], and neigh as strong horses; 12 your mother shall be utterly put to shame; she who bore you shall be confounded: behold, she shall be the least of the nations, a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert. 13 Because of the wrath of the LORD she shall not be inhabited, but she shall be wholly desolate: everyone who goes by Bavel shall be astonished, and hiss at all her plagues. 14 Set yourselves in array against Bavel round about, all you who bend the bow; shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she has sinned against the LORD. 15 Shout against her round about: she has submitted herself; her bulwarks are fallen, her walls are thrown down; for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance on her; as she has done, do to her. 16 Cut off the sower from Bavel, and him who handles the sickle in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn everyone to his people, and they shall flee everyone to his own land. 17 Yisra’el is a hunted sheep; the lions have driven him away: first, the king of Ashshur devoured him; and now at last Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel has broken his bones. 18 Therefore thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Behold, I will punish the king of Bavel and his land, as I have punished the king of Ashshur. 19 I will bring Yisra’el again to his pasture, and he shall feed on Karmel and Bashan, and his soul shall be satisfied on the hills of Efrayim and in Gil`ad. 20 In those days, and in that time, says the LORD, the iniquity of Yisra’el shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Yehudah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I leave as a remnant. 21 Go up against the land of Meratayim, even against it, and against the inhabitants of Pekod: kill and utterly destroy after them, says the LORD, and do according to all that I have commanded you. 22 A sound of battle is in the land, and of great destruction. 23 How is the hammer of the whole eretz cut apart and broken! how is Bavel become a desolation among the nations! 24 I have laid a snare for you, and you are also taken, Bavel, and you weren’t aware: you are found, and also caught, because you have striven against the LORD. 25 The LORD has opened his armory, and has brought forth the weapons of his indignation; for the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, has a work [to do] in the land of the Kasdim. 26 Come against her from the utmost border; open her store-houses; cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly; let nothing of her be left. 27 Kill all her bulls; let them go down to the slaughter: woe to them! for their day is come, the time of their visitation. 28 The voice of those who flee and escape out of the land of Bavel, to declare in Tziyon the vengeance of the LORD our God, the vengeance of his temple. 29 Call together the archers against Bavel, all those who bend the bow; encamp against her round about; let none of it escape: recompense her according to her work; according to all that she has done, do to her; for she has been proud against the LORD, against the Holy One of Yisra’el. 30 Therefore shall her young men fall in her streets, and all her men of war shall be brought to silence in that day, says the LORD. 31 Behold, I am against you, you proud one, says the Lord, the LORD of Hosts; for your day is come, the time that I will visit you. 32 The proud one shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up; and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all who are round about him. 33 Thus says the LORD of hosts: The children of Yisra’el and the children of Yehudah are oppressed together; and all who took them captive hold them fast; they refuse to let them go. 34 Their Redeemer is strong; the LORD of Hosts is his name: he will thoroughly plead their cause, that he may give rest to the eretz, and disquiet the inhabitants of Bavel. 35 A sword is on the Kasdim, says the LORD, and on the inhabitants of Bavel, and on her princes, and on her wise men. 36 A sword is on the boasters, and they shall become fools; a sword is on her mighty men, and they shall be dismayed. 37 A sword is on their horses, and on their chariots, and on all the mixed people who are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is on her treasures, and they shall be robbed. 38 A drought is on her waters, and they shall be dried up; for it is a land of engraved images, and they are mad over idols. 39 Therefore the wild animals of the desert with the wolves shall dwell there, and the ostriches shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited forever; neither shall it be lived in from generation to generation. 40 As when God overthrew Sedom and `Amorah and the neighbor cities of it, says the LORD, so shall no man dwell there, neither shall any son of man sojourn therein. 41 Behold, a people comes from the north; and a great nation and many kings shall be stirred up from the uttermost parts of the eretz. 42 They lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roars like the sea; and they ride on horses, everyone set in array, as a man to the battle, against you, daughter of Bavel. 43 The king of Bavel has heard the news of them, and his hands wax feeble: anguish has taken hold of him, [and] pangs as of a woman in travail. 44 Behold, [the enemy] shall come up like a lion from the pride of the Yarden against the strong habitation: for I will suddenly make them run away from it; and whoever is chosen, him will I appoint over it: for who is like me? and who will appoint me a time? and who is the shepherd who can stand before me? 45 Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD, that he has taken against Bavel; and his purposes, that he has purposed against the land of the Kasdim: Surely they shall drag them away, [even] the little ones of the flock; surely he shall make their habitation desolate over them. 46 At the noise of the taking of Bavel the eretz trembles, and the cry is heard among the nations.

NEW TESTAMENT: TITUS 1:1 – 16

1:1 Sha’ul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness, 

2 in hope of eternal life, which God, who can’t lie, promised before eternal times; 

3 but in his own time revealed his word in the message with which I was entrusted according to the mitzvah of God, our Savior; 

4 to Titus, my true child according to a common faith: Grace, mercy, and shalom from God, the Father, and the Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, our Savior. 

5 I left you in Crete for this reason, that you would set in order the things that were lacking, and appoint Zakenim in every city, as I directed you; 

6 if anyone is blameless, the husband of one wife, having children who believe, who are not accused of loose or unruly behavior. 

7 For the overseer must be blameless, as God’s steward; not self-pleasing, not easily angered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for dishonest gain; 

8 but given to hospitality, as a lover of good, sober-minded, fair, holy, self-controlled; 

9 holding to the faithful word which is according to the teaching, that he may be able to exhort in the sound doctrine, and to convict those who contradict him. 

10 For there are also many unruly men, vain talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, 

11 whose mouths must be stopped; men who overthrow whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for dishonest gain’s sake. 

12 One of them, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, and idle gluttons.” 

13 This testimony is true. For this cause, reprove them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, 

14 not paying attention to Yehudi fables and mitzvot of men who turn away from the truth. 

15 To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.

16 They profess that they know God, but by their works they deny him, being abominable, disobedient, and unfit for any good work.

AUGUST 5

PSALMS: 5

PROVERBS: 5, 35, 65, 95, 125

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 48:1 – 49:22

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 TIMOTHY 4:1 – 22

PSALMS: 5

1 For the leader.

On wind instruments.

A psalm of David:

Give ear to my words,

ADONAI, consider my inmost thoughts. 

2 Listen to my cry for help,

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

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

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

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

evil cannot remain with you. 

5 Those who brag cannot stand before your eyes,

you hate all who do evil, 

6 you destroy those who tell lies,

ADONAI detests men of blood and deceivers. 

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

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

8 Lead me, ADONAI, in your righteousness

because of those lying in wait for me;

make your way straight before me. 

9 For in their mouths there is nothing sincere,

within them are calamities, their throats are open tombs,

they flatter with their tongues. 

10 God, declare them guilty!

Let them fall through their own intrigues,

For their many crimes, throw them down;

since they have rebelled against you.

11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice,

let them forever shout for joy!

Shelter them;

and they will be glad,

those who love your name.

12 For you, ADONAI, bless the righteous;

you surround them with favor like a shield.

PSALMS: 35

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

fight against those who fight against me. 

2 Grasp your shield and protective gear,

and rise to my defense. 

3 Brandish spear and battle-axe against my pursuers;

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

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

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

5 May they be like chaff before the wind,

with the angel of ADONAI to drive them on. 

6 May their way be dark and slippery,

with the angel of ADONAI to pursue them. 

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

unprovoked, they dug it for me. 

8 May destruction come over him unawares.

May the net he concealed catch himself;

may he fall into it and be destroyed. 

9 Then I will be joyful in ADONAI,

I will rejoice in his salvation. 

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

Who can rescue the weak from those stronger than they,

the poor and needy from those who exploit them?” 

11 Malicious witnesses come forward,

asking me things about which I know nothing. 

12 They repay me evil for good;

it makes me feel desolate as a parent bereaved. 

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

I put myself out and fasted;

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

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

I bent down in sorrow as if mourning my mother. 

15 But when I stumble, they gather in glee;

they gather against me and strike me unawares;

they tear me apart unceasingly. 

16 With ungodly mocking and grimacing,

they grind their teeth at me. 

17 Adonai, how much longer will you look on?

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

18 I will give you thanks in the great assembly,

I will give you praise among huge crowds of people.

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

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

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

to deceive the peaceful of the land. 

21 They shout to accuse me,

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

22 You saw them, ADONAI;

don’t stay silent.

Adonai, don’t stay far away from me. 

23 Wake up! Get up, my God, my Lord!

Defend me and my cause! 

24 Give judgment for me, ADONAI, my God,

as your righteousness demands.

Don’t let them gloat over me. 

25 Don’t let them say to themselves,

“Aha! We got what we wanted!”

or say, “We swallowed them up!” 

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

May those who aggrandize themselves at my expense be covered

with shame and confusion. 

27  But may those who delight in my righteousness

shout for joy and be glad!

Let them say always, “How great is ADONAI,

who delights in the peace of his servant!

“Then my tongue will tell of your righteousness

and praise you all day long.

PSALMS: 65

1 For the leader. A psalm of David.

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

and vows to you are to be fulfilled. 

2 You who listen to prayer,

to you all living creatures come. 

3 When deeds of wickedness overwhelm me,

you will atone for our crimes. 

4 How blessed are those you choose and bring near,

so that they can remain in your courtyards!

We will be satisfied with the goodness of your house,

the Holy Place of your temple. 

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

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

to the ends of the earth and on distant seas. 

6 By your strength you set up the mountains.

You are clothed with power. 

7 You still the roaring of the seas,

their crashing waves, and the peoples’ turmoil. 

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

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

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

with the river of God, full of water,

you provide them grain and prepare the ground. 

10 Soaking its furrows and settling its soil,

you soften it with showers and bless its growth. 

11 You crown the year with your goodness,

your tracks overflow with richness. 

12The desert pastures drip water,

the hills are wrapped with joy, 

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

so they shout for joy and break into song.

PSALMS: 95

1 Come, let’s sing to ADONAI!

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

2 Let’s come into his presence with thanksgiving;

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

3 For ADONAI is a great God,

a great king greater than all gods. 

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

the mountain peaks too belong to him. 

5 The sea is his – he made it -and

his hands shaped the dry land. 

6 Come, let’s bow down and worship;

let’s kneel before ADONAI who made us. 

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

If only today you would listen to his voice: 

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

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

9 when your fathers put me to the test;

they challenged me, even though they saw my work. 

10 For forty years I loathed that generation;

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

they don’t understand how I do things.’ 

11 Therefore I swore in my anger

that they would not enter my rest.”

PSALMS: 125

1 A song of ascents:

Those who trust in ADONAI are like Mount Tziyon,

which cannot be moved but remains forever. 

2 Yerushalayim!

Mountains all around it!

Thus ADONAI is around his people henceforth and forever. 

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

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

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

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

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

Shalom on Isra’el!

PROVERBS: 5

1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom;

incline your ear to my understanding; 

2 so that you will preserve discretion

and your lips keep watch over knowledge. 

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

her mouth is smoother than oil; 

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

sharp as a double-edged sword.

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

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

but she doesn’t know it. 

7 So now, children, listen to me;

don’t turn away from what I am saying: 

8 distance your way from her,

stay far from the door of her house; 

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

and your years to someone who is cruel, 

10 so strangers won’t be filled with your strength

and what you worked for go to a foreign house. 

11 Then, when your flesh and bones have shrunk,

at the end of your life, you would moan, 

12 “How I hated discipline!

My whole being despised reproof, 

13 I ignored what my teachers said,

I didn’t listen to my instructors. 

14 I took part in almost every kind of evil,

and the whole community knew it.” 

15 Drink the water from your own cistern,

fresh water from your own well. 

16 Let what your springs produce be dispersed outside,

streams of water flowing in the streets; 

17 but let them be for you alone

and not for strangers with you. 

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

find joy in her 

19 a lovely deer, a graceful fawn;

let her breasts satisfy you at all times,

always be infatuated with her love. 

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

Why embrace the body of a loose woman? 

21 For ADONAI is watching a man’s ways;

he surveys all his paths. 

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

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

23 He will die from lack of discipline;

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

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 48:1 – 49:22

48:1 Of Mo’av. Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Woe to Nevo! for it is laid waste; Kiryatayim is put to shame, it is taken; Misgav is put to shame and broken down. 2 The praise of Mo’av is no more; in Heshbon they have devised evil against her: Come, and let us cut her off from being a nation. You also, Madmen, shall be brought to silence: the sword shall pursue you. 3 The sound of a cry from Horonayim, desolation and great destruction! 4 Mo’av is destroyed; her little ones have caused a cry to be heard. 5 For by the ascent of Luchit with continual weeping shall they go up; for at the descent of Horonayim they have heard the distress of the cry of destruction. 6 Flee, save your lives, and be like the heath in the wilderness. 7 For, because you have trusted in your works and in your treasures, you also shall be taken: and Kemosh shall go forth into captivity, his Kohanim and his princes together. 8 The destroyer shall come on every city, and no city shall escape; the valley also shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed; as the LORD has spoken. 9 Give wings to Mo’av, that she may fly and get her away: and her cities shall become a desolation, without any to dwell therein. 10 Cursed be he who does the work of the LORD negligently; and cursed be he who keeps back his sword from blood. 11 Mo’av has been at ease from his youth, and he has settled on his lees, and has not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither has he gone into captivity: therefore his taste remains in him, and his scent is not changed. 12 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will send to him those who pour off, and they shall pour him off; and they shall empty his vessels, and break their bottles in pieces. 

13 Mo’av shall be ashamed of Kemosh, as the house of Yisra’el was ashamed of Beit-El their confidence. 14 How say you, We are mighty men, and valiant men for the war? 15 Mo’av is laid waste, and they are gone up into his cities, and his chosen young men are gone down to the slaughter, says the King, whose name is the LORD of Hosts. 16 The calamity of Mo’av is near to come, and his affliction hurries fast. 17 All you who are round about him, bemoan him, and all you who know his name; say, How is the strong staff broken, the beautiful rod! 18 You daughter who dwells in Divon, come down from your glory, and sit in thirst; for the destroyer of Mo’av is come up against you, he has destroyed your strongholds. 19 Inhabitant of `Aro`er, stand by the way, and watch: ask him who flees, and her who escapes; say, What has been done? 20 Mo’av is put to shame; for it is broken down: wail and cry; tell you it by the Arnon, that Mo’av is laid waste. 21 Judgment is come on the plain country, on Holon, and on Yahtzah, and on Mefa`at, 22 and on Divon, and on Nevo, and on Beit-Divlatayim, 23 and on Kiryatayim, and on Beit-Gamul, and on Beit-Me`on, 24 and on Keriyot, and on Botzrah, and on all the cities of the land of Mo’av, far or near. 25 The horn of Mo’av is cut off, and his arm is broken, says the LORD. 26 Make you him drunken; for he magnified himself against the LORD: and Mo’av shall wallow in his vomit, and he also shall be in derision. 27 For wasn’t Yisra’el a derision to you? was he found among thieves? for as often as you speak of him, you wag the head. 28 You inhabitants of Mo’av, leave the cities, and dwell in the rock; and be like the dove that makes her nest over the mouth of the abyss. 29 We have heard of the pride of Mo’av, [that] he is very proud; his loftiness, and his pride, and his arrogance, and the haughtiness of his heart. 30 I know his wrath, says the LORD, that it is nothing; his boastings have worked nothing. 31 Therefore will I wail for Mo’av; yes, I will cry out for all Mo’av: for the men of Kir-Heres shall they mourn. 32 With more than the weeping of Ya`zer will I weep for you, vine of Sivmah: your branches passed over the sea, they reached even to the sea of Ya`zer: on your summer fruits and on your vintage the destroyer is fallen. 33 Gladness and joy is taken away from the fruitful field and from the land of Mo’av; and I have caused wine to cease from the wine presses: none shall tread with shouting; the shouting shall be no shouting. 34 From the cry of Heshbon even to El`aleh, even to Yahatz have they uttered their voice, from Tzo`ar even to Horonayim, to `Eglat, Shelishiyah: for the waters of Nimrim also shall become desolate. 35 Moreover I will cause to cease in Mo’av, says the LORD, him who offers in the high place, and him who burns incense to his gods. 36 Therefore my heart sounds for Mo’av like pipes, and my heart sounds like pipes for the men of Kir-Heres: therefore the abundance that he has gotten is perished. 37 For every head is bald, and every beard clipped: on all the hands are cuttings, and on the loins sackcloth. 38 On all the housetops of Mo’av and in the streets of it there is lamentation every where; for I have broken Mo’av like a vessel in which none delights, says the LORD. 39 How is it broken down! [how] do they wail! how has Mo’av turned the back with shame! so shall Mo’av become a derision and a terror to all who are round about him. 40 For thus says the LORD: Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread out his wings against Mo’av. 41 Keriyot is taken, and the strongholds are seized, and the heart of the mighty men of Mo’av at that day shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs. 42 Mo’av shall be destroyed from being a people, because he has magnified himself against the LORD. 43 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are on you, inhabitant of Mo’av, says the LORD. 44 He who flees from the fear shall fall into the pit; and he who gets up out of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for I will bring on him, even on Mo’av, the year of their visitation, says the LORD. 45 Those who fled stand without strength under the shadow of Heshbon; for a fire is gone forth out of Heshbon, and a flame from the midst of Sichon, and has devoured the corner of Mo’av, and the crown of the head of the tumultuous ones. 46Woe to you, O Mo’av! the people of Kemosh is undone; for your sons are taken away captive, and your daughters into captivity. 47 Yet will I bring back the captivity of Mo’av in the latter days, says the LORD. Thus far is the judgment of Mo’av.

49:1 Of the children of `Ammon. Thus says the LORD: Has Yisra’el no sons? has he no heir? why then does Malkam possess Gad, and his people well in the cities of it? 2 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will cause an alarm of war to be heard against Rabbah of the children of `Ammon; and it shall become a desolate heap, and her daughters shall be burned with fire: then shall Yisra’el possess those who did possess him, says the LORD. 3 Wail, Heshbon, for `Ai is laid waste; cry, you daughters of Rabbah, gird you with sackcloth: lament, and run back and forth among the fences; for Malkam shall go into captivity, his Kohanim and his princes together. 4 Why glory you in the valleys, your flowing valley, backsliding daughter? who trusted in her treasures, [saying], Who shall come to me? 5 Behold, I will bring a fear on you, says the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, from all who are round about you; and you shall be driven out every man right forth, and there shall be none to gather together the fugitives. 6 But afterward I will bring back the captivity of the children of `Ammon, says the LORD. 7 Of Edom. Thus says the LORD of Hosts: Is wisdom no more in Teman? is counsel perished from the prudent? is their wisdom vanished? 8 Flee you, turn back, dwell in the depths, inhabitants of Dedan; for I will bring the calamity of Esav on him, the time that I shall visit him. 9 If grape-gatherers came to you, would they not leave some gleaning grapes? if thieves by night, wouldn’t they destroy until they had enough? 10 But I have made Esav bare, I have uncovered his secret places, and he shall not be able to hide himself: his seed is destroyed, and his brothers, and his neighbors; and he is no more. 11 Leave your fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; and let your widows trust in me. 12 For thus says the LORD: Behold, they to whom it didn’t pertain to drink of the cup shall assuredly drink; and are you he who shall altogether go unpunished? you shall not go unpunished, but you shall surely drink. 13 For I have sworn by myself, says the LORD, that Botzrah shall become an astonishment, a reproach, a waste, and a curse; and all the cities of it shall be perpetual wastes. 14 I have heard news from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the nations, [saying], Gather yourselves together, and come against her, and rise up to the battle. 15 For, behold, I have made you small among the nations, and despised among men. 16 As for your terror, the pride of your heart has deceived you, O you who dwell in the clefts of the rock, who hold the height of the hill: though you should make your nest as high as the eagle, I will bring you down from there, says the LORD. 17 Edom shall become an astonishment: everyone who passes by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss at all the plagues of it. 18 As in the overthrow of Sedom and `Amorah and the neighbor cities of it, says the LORD, no man shall dwell there, neither shall any son of man sojourn therein. 19 Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the pride of the Yarden against the strong habitation: for I will suddenly make them run away from it; and whoever is chosen, him will I appoint over it: for who is like me? and who will appoint me a time? and who is the shepherd who will stand before me? 20 Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD, that he has taken against Edom; and his purposes, that he has purposed against the inhabitants of Teman: Surely they shall drag them away, [even] the little ones of the flock; surely he shall make their habitation desolate over them. 21 The eretz trembles at the noise of their fall; there is a cry, the noise whereof is heard in the Sea of Suf. 

22 Behold, he shall come up and fly as the eagle, and spread out his wings against Botzrah: and the heart of the mighty men of Edom at that day shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 TIMOTHY 4:1 – 22

4:1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: 

2 preach the word; be urgent in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with all patience and teaching.

3 For the time will come when they will not listen to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves teachers after their own lusts; 

4 and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside to fables. 

5 But you be sober in all things, suffer hardship, do the work of an evangelist, and fulfill your ministry.

6 For I am already being offered, and the time of my departure has come. 

7 I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith. 

8 From now on, there is stored up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me at that day; and not to me only, but also to all those who have loved his appearing. 

9 Be diligent to come to me soon, 

10 for Demas left me, having loved this present world, and went to Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia. 

11 Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with you, for he is useful to me for ministering. 

12 But I sent Tychicus to Ephesus. 

13 Bring the cloak that I left at Troas with Carpus, when you come, and the books, especially the parchments. 

14 Alexander, the coppersmith, did much evil to me. The Lord will repay him according to his works,

15 of whom you also must beware; for he greatly opposed our words. 

16 At my first defense, no one took my part, but all left me. May it not be held against them. 

17 But the Lord stood by me, and strengthened me, that through me the message might be fully proclaimed, and that all the Goyim might hear; and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. 

18 And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work, and will save me to his heavenly kingdom; to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amein. 

19 Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the house of Onesiphorus. 

20 Erastus remained at Corinth, but I left Trophimus at Miletus sick. 

21 Be diligent to come before winter. Eubulus salutes you, as do Pudens, Linus, Claudia, and all the brothers. 

22 The Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amein.

AUGUST 4

PSALMS: 4, 34, 64, 94, 124

PROVERBS: 4

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 44:24 – 47:7

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 TIMOTHY 2:22 – 3:17

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: JEREMIAH 44:24 – 47:7

44:24 Moreover Yirmeyahu said to all the people, and to all the women, Hear the word of the LORD, all Yehudah who are in the land of Mitzrayim: 25 Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el, saying, You and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and with your hands have fulfilled it, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of the sky, and to pour out drink-offerings to her: establish then your vows, and perform your vows. 26 Therefore hear the word of the LORD, all Yehudah who dwell in the land of Mitzrayim: Behold, I have sworn by my great name, says the LORD, that my name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Yehudah in all the land of Mitzrayim, saying, As the Lord GOD lives. 27 Behold, I watch over them for evil, and not for good; and all the men of Yehudah who are in the land of Mitzrayim shall be consumed by the sword and by the famine, until there be an end of them. 28 Those who escape the sword shall return out of the land of Mitzrayim into the land of Yehudah, few in number; and all the remnant of Yehudah, who have gone into the land of Mitzrayim to sojourn there, shall know whose word shall stand, mine, or theirs. 29 This shall be the sign to you, says the LORD, that I will punish you in this place, that you may know that my words shall surely stand against you for evil: 30 Thus says the LORD, Behold, I will give Par`oh Hofra king of Mitzrayim into the hand of his enemies, and into the hand of those who seek his life; as I gave Tzidkiyahu king of Yehudah into the hand of Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel, who was his enemy, and sought his life.

45:1 The word that Yirmeyahu the prophet spoke to Barukh the son of Neriyah, when he wrote these word in a book at the mouth of Yirmeyahu, in the fourth year of Yehoiakim the son of Yoshiyahu, king of Yehudah, saying, 2 Thus says the LORD, the God of Yisra’el, to you, Barukh: 3 You did say, Woe is me now! for the LORD has added sorrow to my pain; I am weary with my groaning, and I find no rest. 4 Thus shall you tell him, Thus says the LORD: Behold, that which I have built will I break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up; and this in the whole land. 5 Seek you great things for yourself? Don’t seek them; for, behold, I will bring evil on all flesh, says the LORD; but your life will I give to you for a prey in all places where you go.

46:1 The word of the LORD which came to Yirmeyahu the prophet concerning the nations. 2 Of Mitzrayim: concerning the army of Par`oh-Nekho king of Mitzrayim, which was by the river Perat in Karkemish, which Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel struck in the fourth year of Yehoiakim the son of Yoshiyahu, king of Yehudah. 3 Prepare you the buckler and shield, and draw near to battle. 4 Harness the horses, and get up, you horsemen, and stand forth with your helmets; furbish the spears, put on the coats of mail. 5 Why have I seen it? they are dismayed and are turned backward; and their mighty ones are beaten down, and have fled apace, and don’t look back: terror is on every side, says the LORD. 6 Don’t let the swift flee away, nor the mighty man escape; in the north by the river Perat have they stumbled and fallen. 7  Who is this who rises up like the Nile, whose waters toss themselves like the rivers? 8 Mitzrayim rises up like the Nile, and his waters toss themselves like the rivers: and he says, I will rise up, I will cover the eretz; I will destroy cities and the inhabitants of it. 9 Go up, you horses; and rage, you chariots; and let the mighty men go forth: Kush and Put, who handle the shield; and the Ludim, who handle and bend the bow. 10 For that day is [a day] of the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour and be satiate, and shall drink its fill of their blood; for the Lord, the LORD of hosts, has a sacrifice in the north country by the river Perat. 11 Go up into Gil`ad, and take balm, virgin daughter of Mitzrayim: in vain do you use many medicines; there is no healing for you. 12 The nations have heard of your shame, and the eretz is full of your cry; for the mighty man has stumbled against the mighty, they are fallen both of them together. 13 The word that the LORD spoke to Yirmeyahu the prophet, how that Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel should come and strike the land of Mitzrayim. 14 Declare you in Mitzrayim, and publish in Migdol, and publish in Mof and in Tachpanches: say you, Stand forth, and prepare you; for the sword has devoured round about you. 15 Why are your strong ones swept away? they didn’t stand, because the LORD did drive them. 16 He made many to stumble, yes, they fell one on another: and they said, Arise, and let us go again to our own people, and to the land of our birth, from the oppressing sword. 17  They cried there, Par`oh king of Mitzrayim is but a noise; he has let the appointed time pass by. 18 As I live, says the King, whose name is the LORD of Hosts, surely like Tavor among the mountains, and like Karmel by the sea, so shall he come. 19 You daughter who dwell in Mitzrayim, furnish yourself to go into captivity; for Mof shall become a desolation, and shall be burnt up, without inhabitant. 20 Mitzrayim is a very beautiful heifer; [but] destruction out of the north is come, it is come. 21 Also her hired men in the midst of her are like calves of the stall; for they also are turned back, they are fled away together, they didn’t stand: for the day of their calamity is come on them, the time of their visitation. 22 The sound of it shall go like the serpent; for they shall march with an army, and come against her with axes, as wood cutters. 23 They shall cut down her forest, says the LORD, though it can’t be searched; because they are more than the locusts, and are innumerable. 24 The daughter of Mitzrayim shall be put to shame; she shall be delivered into the hand of the people of the north. 25 The LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el, says: Behold, I will punish Amon of No, and Par`oh, and Mitzrayim, with her gods, and her kings; even Par`oh, and those who trust in him: 26 and I will deliver them into the hand of those who seek their lives, and into the hand of Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel, and into the hand of his servants; and afterwards it shall be inhabited, as in the days of old, says the LORD. 27 But don’t be afraid you, Ya`akov my servant, neither be dismayed, Yisra’el: for, behold, I will save you from afar, and your seed from the land of their captivity; and Ya`akov shall return, and shall be quiet and at ease, and none shall make him afraid. 28 Don’t be afraid you, O Ya`akov my servant, says the LORD; for I am with you: for I will make a full end of all the nations where I have driven you; but I will not make a full end of you, but I will correct you in measure, and will in no way leave you unpunished.

47:1 The word of the LORD that came to Yirmeyahu the prophet concerning the Pelishtim, before that Par`oh struck `Aza. 2 Thus says the LORD: Behold, waters rise up out of the north, and shall become an overflowing stream, and shall overflow the land and all that is therein, the city and those who dwell therein; and the men shall cry, and all the inhabitants of the land shall wail. 3 At the noise of the stamping of the hoofs of his strong ones, at the rushing of his chariots, at the rumbling of his wheels, the fathers don’t look back to their children for feebleness of hands; 4 because of the day that comes to destroy all the Pelishtim, to cut off from Tzor and Tzidon every helper who remains: for the LORD will destroy the Pelishtim, the remnant of the isle of Kaftor. 5 Baldness is come on `Aza; Ashkelon is brought to nothing, the remnant of their valley: how long will you cut yourself? 6 You sword of the LORD, how long will it be before you be quiet? put up yourself into your scabbard; rest, and be still. 7 How can you be quiet, seeing the LORD has given you a charge? Against Ashkelon, and against the sea-shore, there has he appointed it.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 TIMOTHY 2:22 – 3:17

2:22 Flee from youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, and shalom with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 But refuse foolish and ignorant questionings, knowing that they generate strife. 24 The Lord’s servant must not quarrel, but be gentle towards all, able to teach, patient, 25 in gentleness correcting those who oppose him; if perhaps God may give them repentance to the knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may recover themselves out of the devil’s snare, having been taken captive by him to his will.

3:1 But know this, that in the last days, grievous times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; 5 holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof. Turn away from these, also. 6 For of these are those who creep into houses, and take captive gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Even as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moshe, so do these also oppose the truth; men corrupted in mind, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they will proceed no further. For their folly will be evident to all men, as theirs also came to be. 10 But you did follow my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, steadfastness, 11 persecutions, and sufferings; those things that happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; those persecutions that I endured. Out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Messiah Yeshua will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you remain in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them. 15 From infancy, you have known the sacred writings which are able to make you wise to salvation through faith, which is in Messiah Yeshua. 16 Every writing inspired by God is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction which is in righteousness, 17  that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

PSALMS: 3, 33, 63, 93, 123

PROVERBS: 3

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 42:1 – 44:23

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 TIMOTHY 2:1 – 21

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: JEREMIAH 42:1 – 44:23

42:1 Then all the captains of the forces, and Yochanan the son of Kareach, and Yezanyah the son of Hosha`yah, and all the people from the least even to the greatest, came near, 2 and said to Yirmeyahu the prophet, Let, we pray you, our supplication be presented before you, and pray for us to the LORD your God, even for all this remnant; for we are left but a few of many, as your eyes do see us: 3 that the LORD your God may show us the way in which we should walk, and the thing that we should do. 4 Then Yirmeyahu the prophet said to them, I have heard you; behold, I will pray to the LORD your God according to your words; and it shall happen that whatever thing the LORD shall answer you, I will declare it to you; I will keep nothing back from you. 5 Then they said to Yirmeyahu, the LORD be a true and faithful witness among us, if we don’t do according to all the word with which the LORD your God shall send you to us. 6 Whether it be good, or whether it be evil, we will obey the voice of the LORD our God, to whom we send you; that it may be well with us, when we obey the voice of the LORD our God. 7 It happened after ten days, that the word of the LORD came to Yirmeyahu. 8 Then called he Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, and all the people from the least even to the greatest, 9 and said to them, Thus says the LORD, the God of Yisra’el, to whom you sent me to present your supplication before him: 10 If you will still abide in this land, then will I build you, and not pull you down, and I will plant you, and not pluck you up; for I repent me of the evil that I have done to you. 11 Don’t be afraid of the king of Bavel, of whom you are afraid; don’t be afraid of him, says the LORD: for I am with you to save you, and to deliver you from his hand. 12 I will grant you mercy, that he may have mercy on you, and cause you to return to your own land. 13 But if you say, We will not dwell in this land; so that you don’t obey the voice of the LORD your God, 14 saying, No; but we will go into the land of Mitzrayim, where we shall see no war, nor hear the sound of the shofar, nor have hunger of bread; and there will we dwell: 15 now therefore hear you the word of the LORD, O remnant of Yehudah: Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el, If you indeed set your faces to enter into Mitzrayim, and go to sojourn there; 16 then it shall happen, that the sword, which you fear, shall overtake you there in the land of Mitzrayim; and the famine, whereof you are afraid, shall follow hard after you there in Mitzrayim; and there you shall die. 17 So shall it be with all the men who set their faces to go into Mitzrayim to sojourn there: they shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence; and none of them shall remain or escape from the evil that I will bring on them. 18 For thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: As my anger and my wrath has been poured forth on the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, so shall my wrath be poured forth on you, when you shall enter into Mitzrayim; and you shall be an object of horror, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach; and you shall see this place no more. 19 The LORD has spoken concerning you, remnant of Yehudah, Don’t you go into Mitzrayim: know certainly that I have testified to you this day. 20 For you have dealt deceitfully against your own souls; for you sent me to the LORD your God, saying, Pray for us to the LORD our God; and according to all that the LORD our God shall say, so declare to us, and we will do it: 21 and I have this day declared it to you; but you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD your God in anything for which he has sent me to you. 22 Now therefore know certainly that you shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, in the place where you desire to go to sojourn there.

43:1 It happened that, when Yirmeyahu had made an end of speaking to all the people all the words of the LORD their God, with which the LORD their God had sent him to them, even all these words, 2 then spoke `Azaryah the son of Hosha`yah, and Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the proud men, saying to Yirmeyahu, You speak falsely: the LORD our God has not sent you to say, You shall not go into Mitzrayim to sojourn there; 3 but Barukh the son of Neriyah sets you on against us, to deliver us into the hand of the Kasdim, that they may put us to death, and carry us away captive to Bavel. 4 So Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces, and all the people, didn’t obey the voice of the LORD, to dwell in the land of Yehudah. 5 But Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces, took all the remnant of Yehudah, who were returned from all the nations where they had been driven, to sojourn in the land of Yehudah; 6 the men, and the women, and the children, and the king’s daughters, and every person who Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard had left with Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, the son of Shafan; and Yirmeyahu the prophet, and Barukh the son of Neriyah; 7 and they came into the land of Mitzrayim; for they didn’t obey the voice of the LORD: and they came to Tachpanches. 8 Then came the word of the LORD to Yirmeyahu in Tachpanches, saying, 9 Take great stones in your hand, and hide them in mortar in the brick work, which is at the entry of Par`oh’s house in Tachpanches, in the sight of the men of Yehudah; 10 and tell them, Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Behold, I will send and take Nevukhadretztzar the king of Bavel, my servant, and will set his throne on these stones that I have hidden; and he shall spread his royal pavilion over them. 11 He shall come, and shall strike the land of Mitzrayim; such as are for death [shall be given] to death, and such as are for captivity to captivity, and such as are for the sword to the sword. 12 I will kindle a fire in the houses of the gods of Mitzrayim; and he shall burn them, and carry them away captive: and he shall array himself with the land of Mitzrayim, as a shepherd puts on his garment; and he shall go forth from there in shalom. 13 He shall also break the pillars of Beit-Shemesh, that is in the land of Mitzrayim; and the houses of the gods of Mitzrayim shall he burn with fire.

44:1 The word that came to Yirmeyahu concerning all the Yehudim who lived in the land of Mitzrayim, who lived at Migdol, and at Tachpanches, and at Mof, and in the country of Patros, saying, 2 Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: You have seen all the evil that I have brought on Yerushalayim, and on all the cities of Yehudah; and, behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwells therein, 3 because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke me to anger, in that they went to burn incense, [and] to serve other gods, that they didn’t know, neither they, nor you, nor your fathers. 4 However I sent to you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Oh, don’t do this abominable thing that I hate. 5 But they didn’t listen, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense to other gods. 6 Therefore my wrath and my anger was poured forth, and was kindled in the cities of Yehudah and in the streets of Yerushalayim; and they are wasted and desolate, as it is this day. 7 Therefore now thus says the LORD, the God Tzva’ot,, the God of Yisra’el: Why commit you [this] great evil against your own souls, to cut off from you man and woman, infant and suckling, out of the midst of Yehudah, to leave you none remaining; 8 in that you provoke me to anger with the works of your hands, burning incense to other gods in the land of Mitzrayim, where you are gone to sojourn; that you may be cut off, and that you may be a curse and a reproach among all the nations of the eretz? 9 Have you forgotten the wickedness of your fathers, and the wickedness of the kings of Yehudah, and the wickedness of their wives, and your own wickedness, and the wickedness of your wives which they committed in the land of Yehudah, and in the streets of Yerushalayim? 10 They are not humbled even to this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in my law, nor in my statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers. 11 Therefore thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Behold, I will set my face against you for evil, even to cut off all Yehudah. 12 I will take the remnant of Yehudah, that have set their faces to go into the land of Mitzrayim to sojourn there, and they shall all be consumed; in the land of Mitzrayim shall they fall; they shall be consumed by the sword and by the famine; they shall die, from the least even to the greatest, by the sword and by the famine; and they shall be an object of horror, [and] an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach. 13 For I will punish those who dwell in the land of Mitzrayim, as I have punished Yerushalayim, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence; 14 so that none of the remnant of Yehudah, who have gone into the land of Mitzrayim to sojourn there, shall escape or be left, to return into the land of Yehudah, to which they have a desire to return to dwell there: for none shall return save such as shall escape. 15 Then all the men who knew that their wives burned incense to other gods, and all the women who stood by, a great assembly, even all the people who lived in the land of Mitzrayim, in Patros, answered Yirmeyahu, saying, 16 As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the LORD, we will not listen to you. 17 But we will certainly perform every word that is gone forth out of our mouth, to burn incense to the queen of the sky, and to pour out drink-offerings to her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings and our princes, in the cities of Yehudah, and in the streets of Yerushalayim; for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil. 18 But since we left off burning incense to the queen of the sky, and pouring out drink-offerings to her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine. 19 When we burned incense to the queen of the sky, and poured out drink-offerings to her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink-offerings to her, without our husbands? 20 Then Yirmeyahu said to all the people, to the men, and to the women, even to all the people who had given him who answer, saying, 21 The incense that you burned in the cities of Yehudah, and in the streets of Yerushalayim, you and your fathers, your kings and your princes, and the people of the land, didn’t the LORD remember them, and didn’t it come into his mind? 22 so that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which you have committed; therefore is your land become a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without inhabitant, as it is this day. 23 Because you have burned incense, and because you have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened to you, as it is this day.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 TIMOTHY 2:1 – 21

2:1 You therefore, my child, be strengthened in the grace that is in Messiah Yeshua. 

2 The things which you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also. 

3 You therefore must endure hardship, as a good soldier of Messiah Yeshua. 

4 No soldier on service entangles himself in the affairs of life, that he may please him who enrolled him as a soldier. 

5 If also a man competes in the games, he is not crowned, unless he has competed by the rules. 

6 The farmers who labor must be the first to get a share of the crops. 

7 Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things. 

8 Remember Yeshua the Messiah, risen from the dead, of the seed of David, according to my Good News, 

9 in which I suffer hardship to bonds, as a criminal. But God’s word isn’t bound. 

10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sake, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Messiah Yeshua with eternal glory. 

11 This saying is faithful: For if we died with him, we will also live with him.

12 If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we will deny him, he also will deny us. 

13 If we are faithless, he remains faithful — he can’t deny himself. 

14 Remind them of these things, charging them in the sight of the Lord, that they don’t argue about words, to no profit, to the subverting of those who hear. 

15 Give diligence to present yourself approved by God, a workman who doesn’t need to be ashamed, properly handling the Word of Truth. 

16 But shun empty chatter, for they will proceed further in ungodliness, 

17 and their word will consume like gangrene, of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 

18 men who have erred concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past, and overthrowing the faith of some.

19 However God’s firm foundation stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let every one who names the name of the Lord depart from unrighteousness.” 

20 Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of clay. Some are for honor, and some for dishonor. 

21 If a man therefore purges himself from these, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, and suitable for the master’s use, prepared for every good work.

AUGUST 2

PSALMS: 2, 32, 62, 92, 122

PROVERBS: 2

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 39:1 – 41:18

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 TIMOTHY 1:1 – 18

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: JEREMIAH 39:1 – 41:18

39:1 It happened when Yerushalayim was taken, (in the ninth year of Tzidkiyahu king of Yehudah, in the tenth month, came Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel and all his army against Yerushalayim, and besieged it; 2 in the eleventh year of Tzidkiyahu, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, a breach was made in the city,) 3 that all the princes of the king of Bavel came in, and sat in the middle gate, [to wit], Nergal-Sar’etzer, Samgar-Nevo, Sarsekhim, Rav-Saris, Nergal-Sar’etzer, Rav-Mag, with all the rest of the princes of the king of Bavel. 4 It happened that, when Tzidkiyahu the king of Yehudah and all the men of war saw them, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king’s garden, through the gate between the two walls; and he went out toward the `Aravah. 5 But the army of the Kasdim pursued after them, and overtook Tzidkiyahu in the plains of Yericho: and when they had taken him, they brought him up to Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel to Rivlah in the land of Hamat; and he gave judgment on him. 6 Then the king of Bavel killed the sons of Tzidkiyahu in Rivlah before his eyes: also the king of Bavel killed all the nobles of Yehudah. 7 Moreover he put out Tzidkiyahu’s eyes, and bound him in fetters, to carry him to Bavel. 8 The Kasdim burned the king’s house, and the houses of the people, with fire, and broke down the walls of Yerushalayim. 9 Then Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard carried away captive into Bavel the residue of the people who remained in the city, the deserters also who fell away to him, and the residue of the people who remained.10 But Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, who had nothing, in the land of Yehudah, and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time. 11 Now Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel gave charge concerning Yirmeyahu to Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard, saying, 12 Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do to him even as he shall tell you. 13 So Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard sent, and Nevushazban, Rav-Saris, and Nergal-Sar’etzer, Rav-Mag, and all the chief officers of the king of Bavel; 14 they sent, and took Yirmeyahu out of the court of the guard, and committed him to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, the son of Shafan, that he should carry him home: so he lived among the people. 15 Now the word of the LORD came to Yirmeyahu, while he was shut up in the court of the guard, saying, 16 Go, and speak to `Eved-Melekh the Kushite, saying, Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Behold, I will bring my words on this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished before you in that day. 17 But I will deliver you in that day, says the LORD; and you shall not be given into the hand of the men of whom you are afraid. 18 For I will surely save you, and you shall not fall by the sword, but your life shall be for a prey to you; because you have put your trust in me, says the LORD.

40:1 The word which came to Yirmeyahu from the LORD, after that Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard had let him go from Ramah, when he had taken him being bound in chains among all the captives of Yerushalayim and Yehudah, who were carried away captive to Bavel. 2 The captain of the guard took Yirmeyahu, and said to him, the LORD your God pronounced this evil on this place; 3 and the LORD has brought it, and done according as he spoke: because you have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed his voice, therefore this thing is come on you. 4 Now, behold, I loose you this day from the chains which are on your hand. If it seem good to you to come with me into Bavel, come, and I will look well to you; but if it seem ill to you to come with me into Bavel, forbear: behold, all the land is before you; where it seems good and right to you to go, there go. 5 Now while he was not yet gone back, Go back then, [said he], to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, the son of Shafan, whom the king of Bavel has made governor over the cities of Yehudah, and dwell with him among the people; or go wherever it seems right to you to go. So the captain of the guard gave him victuals and a present, and let him go. 6 Then went Yirmeyahu to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam to Mitzpah, and lived with him among the people who were left in the land. 7 Now when all the captains of the forces who were in the fields, even they and their men, heard that the king of Bavel had made Gedalyahu the son of Achikam governor in the land, and had committed to him men, and women, and children, and of the poorest of the land, of those who were not carried away captive to Bavel; 8 then they came to Gedalyahu to Mitzpah, [to wit], Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, and Yochanan and Yonatan the sons of Kareach, and Serayah the son of Tanchumet, and the sons of `Efai the Netofatite, and Yezanyah the son of the Ma`akhatite, they and their men. 9 Gedalyahu the son of Achikam the son of Shafan swore to them and to their men, saying, Don’t be afraid to serve the Kasdim: dwell in the land, and serve the king of Bavel, and it shall be well with you. 10 As for me, behold, I will dwell at Mitzpah, to stand before the Kasdim who shall come to us: but you, gather you wine and summer fruits and oil, and put them in your vessels, and dwell in your cities that you have taken. 11 Likewise when all the Yehudim who were in Mo’av, and among the children of `Ammon, and in Edom, and who were in all the countries, heard that the king of Bavel had left a remnant of Yehudah, and that he had set over them Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, the son of Shafan; 12 then all the Yehudim returned out of all places where they were driven, and came to the land of Yehudah, to Gedalyahu, to Mitzpah, and gathered wine and summer fruits very much. 13 Moreover Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were in the fields, came to Gedalyahu to Mitzpah, 14 and said to him, Do you know that Baalis the king of the children of `Ammon has sent Yishma’el the son of Netanyah to take your life? But Gedalyahu the son of Achikam didn’t believe them. 15 Then Yochanan the son of Kareach spoke to Gedalyahu in Mitzpah secretly, saying, Please let me go, and I will kill Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, and no man shall know it: why should he take your life, that all the Yehudim who are gathered to you should be scattered, and the remnant of Yehudah perish? 16 But Gedalyahu the son of Achikam said to Yochanan the son of Kareach, You shall not do this thing; for you speak falsely of Yishma’el.

41:1 Now it happened in the seventh month, that Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, the son of Elishama, of the seed royal and [one of] the chief officers of the king, and ten men with him, came to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam to Mitzpah; and there they ate bread together in Mitzpah. 2 Then arose Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, and the ten men who were with him, and struck Gedalyahu the son of Achikam the son of Shafan with the sword, and killed him, whom the king of Bavel had made governor over the land. 

3 Yishma’el also killed all the Yehudim who were with him, [to wit], with Gedalyahu, at Mitzpah, and the Kasdim who were found there, the men of war. 4 It happened the second day after he had killed Gedalyahu, and no man knew it, 5 that there came men from Shekhem, from Shiloh, and from Shomron, even eighty men, having their beards shaved and their clothes torn, and having cut themselves, with meal-offerings and frankincense in their hand, to bring them to the house of the LORD. 6 Yishma’el the son of Netanyah went forth from Mitzpah to meet them, weeping all along as he went: and it happened, as he met them, he said to them, Come to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam. 7 It was so, when they came into the midst of the city, that Yishma’el the son of Netanyah killed them, [and cast them] into the midst of the pit, he, and the men who were with him. 8 But ten men were found among those who said to Yishma’el, Don’t kill us; for we have stores hidden in the field, of wheat, and of barley, and of oil, and of honey. So he stopped, and didn’t kill them among their brothers. 9 Now the pit in which Yishma’el cast all the dead bodies of the men whom he had killed, by the side of Gedalyahu (the same was who which Asa the king had made for fear of Ba`sha king of Yisra’el,) Yishma’el the son of Netanyah filled it with those who were killed. 10 Then Yishma’el carried away captive all the residue of the people who were in Mitzpah, even the king’s daughters, and all the people who remained in Mitzpah, whom Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard had committed to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam; Yishma’el the son of Netanyah carried them away captive, and departed to go over to the children of `Ammon. 11 But when Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, heard of all the evil that Yishma’el the son of Netanyah had done, 12 then they took all the men, and went to fight with Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, and found him by the great waters that are in Giv`on. 13 Now it happened that, when all the people who were with Yishma’el saw Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, then they were glad. 14 So all the people who Yishma’el had carried away captive from Mitzpah turned about and came back, and went to Yochanan the son of Kareach. 15 But Yishma’el the son of Netanyah escaped from Yochanan with eight men, and went to the children of `Ammon. 16 Then took Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, all the remnant of the people whom he had recovered from Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, from Mitzpah, after that he had killed Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, [to wit], the men of war, and the women, and the children, and the eunuchs, whom he had brought back from Giv`on: 17 and they departed, and lived in Gerut-Kimaham, which is by Beit-Lechem, to go to enter into Mitzrayim, 18 because of the Kasdim; for they were afraid of them, because Yishma’el the son of Netanyah had killed Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, whom the king of Bavel made governor over the land.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 TIMOTHY 1:1 – 18

1:1 Sha’ul, an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah through the will of God, according to the promise of the life which is in Messiah Yeshua, 

2 to Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and shalom, from God, the Father, and Messiah Yeshua, our Lord. 

3 I thank God, whom I serve as my forefathers did, with a pure conscience. How unceasing is my memory of you in my petitions, night and day 

4 longing to see you, remembering your tears, that I may be filled with joy; 

5 having been reminded of the unfeigned faith that is in you; which lived first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice, and, I am persuaded, in you also. 

6 For this cause, I remind you that you should stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 

7 For God didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and discipline.

8 Don’t be ashamed therefore of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me, his prisoner; but suffer hardship with the Good News according to the power of God, 

9 who saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Messiah Yeshua before times eternal,

10 but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior, Messiah Yeshua, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the Good News. 

11 For this, I was appointed as a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Goyim. 

12 For this cause I suffer also these things. Yet I am not ashamed, for I know him whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to guard that which I have committed to him against that day. 

13 Hold the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which is in Messiah Yeshua. 

14 That good thing which was committed to you, guard through the Ruach HaKodesh which dwells in us. 

15 This you know, that all who are in Asia turned away from me; of whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 

16 May the Lord grant mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain, 

17 but when he was in Rome, he sought me diligently, and found me 

18 (the Lord grant to him to find the Lord’s mercy in that day); and in how many things he served at Ephesus, you know very well.

AUGUST 1

PSALMS: 1, 31, 61, 91, 121

PROVERBS: 1

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 37:1 – 38: – 28

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 6:1 – 21

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: 61

1 For the leader.

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,

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,

let 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!

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: JEREMIAH 37:1 – 38: – 28

37:1 Tzidkiyahu the son of Yoshiyahu reigned as king, instead of Konyahu the son of Yehoiakim, whom Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel made king in the land of Yehudah. 2 But neither he, nor his servants, nor the people of the land, did listen to the words of the LORD, which he spoke by the prophet Yirmeyahu. 3 Tzidkiyahu the king sent Yehukhal the son of Shelemyahu, and Tzefanyah the son of Ma`aseyah, the Kohen, to the prophet Yirmeyahu, saying, Pray now to the LORD our God for us. 4 Now Yirmeyahu came in and went out among the people; for they had not put him into prison. 5 Par`oh’s army was come forth out of Mitzrayim; and when the Kasdim who were besieging Yerushalayim heard news of them, they broke up from Yerushalayim. 6 Then came the word of the LORD to the prophet Yirmeyahu, saying, 7 Thus says the LORD, the God of Yisra’el, Thus shall you tell the king of Yehudah, who sent you to me to inquire of me: Behold, Par`oh’s army, which is come forth to help you, shall return to Mitzrayim into their own land. 8 The Kasdim shall come again, and fight against this city; and they shall take it, and burn it with fire. 9 Thus says the LORD, Don’t deceive yourselves, saying, The Kasdim shall surely depart from us; for they shall not depart. 10 For though you had struck the whole army of the Kasdim who fight against you, and there remained but wounded men among them, yes would they rise up every man in his tent, and burn this city with fire. 11 It happened that, when the army of the Kasdim was broken up from Yerushalayim for fear of Par`oh’s army, 12 then Yirmeyahu went forth out of Yerushalayim to go into the land of Binyamin, to receive his portion there, in the midst of the people. 13 When he was in the gate of Binyamin, a captain of the guard was there, whose name was Yeriyah, the son of Shelemyahu, the son of Hananyah; and he laid hold on Yirmeyahu the prophet, saying, You are falling away to the Kasdim. 14 Then said Yirmeyahu, It is false; I am not falling away to the Kasdim. But he didn’t listen to him; so Yeriyah laid hold on Yirmeyahu, and brought him to the princes. 15 The princes were angry with Yirmeyahu, and struck him, and put him in prison in the house of Yonatan the Sofer; for they had made that the prison. 16 When Yirmeyahu was come into the dungeon-house, and into the cells, and Yirmeyahu had remained there many days; 17  Then Tzidkiyahu the king sent, and fetched him: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, Is there any word from the LORD? Yirmeyahu said, There is. He said also, You shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Bavel. 18 Moreover Yirmeyahu said to king Tzidkiyahu, Wherein have I sinned against you, or against your servants, or against this people, that you have put me in prison? 19 Where now are your prophets who prophesied to you, saying, The king of Bavel shall not come against you, nor against this land? 20 Now please hear, my lord the king: please let my supplication be presented before you, that you not cause me to return to the house of Yonatan the Sofer, lest I die there. 21 Then Tzidkiyahu the king commanded, and they committed Yirmeyahu into the court of the guard; and they gave him daily a loaf of bread out of the bakers’ street, until all the bread in the city was spent. Thus Yirmeyahu remained in the court of the guard.

38:1 Shefatyah the son of Mattan, and Gedalyahu the son of Pashchur, and Yukhal the son of Shelemyahu, and Pashchur the son of Malkiyah, heard the words that Yirmeyahu spoke to all the people, saying, 2 Thus says the LORD, He who remains in this city shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence; but he who goes forth to the Kasdim shall live, and his life shall be to him for a prey, and he shall live. 3 Thus says the LORD, This city shall surely be given into the hand of the army of the king of Bavel, and he shall take it. 4 Then the princes said to the king, Let this man, we pray you, be put to death; because he weakens the hands of the men of war who remain in this city, and the hands of all the people, in speaking such words to them: for this man doesn’t seek the welfare of this people, but the hurt. 5 Tzidkiyahu the king said, Behold, he is in your hand; for the king is not he who can do anything against you. 6 Then took they Yirmeyahu, and cast him into the dungeon of Malkiyah the king’s son, that was in the court of the guard: and they let down Yirmeyahu with cords. In the dungeon there was no water, but mire; and Yirmeyahu sank in the mire. 7 Now when `Eved-Melekh the Kushite, a eunuch, who was in the king’s house, heard that they had put Yirmeyahu in the dungeon (the king then sitting in the gate of Binyamin,) 8 `Eved-Melekh went forth out of the king’s house, and spoke to the king, saying, 9 My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done to Yirmeyahu the prophet, whom they have cast into the dungeon; and he is likely to die in the place where he is, because of the famine; for there is no more bread in the city. 10 Then the king commanded `Eved-Melekh the Kushite, saying, Take from hence thirty men with you, and take up Yirmeyahu the prophet out of the dungeon, before he die. 11 So `Eved-Melekh took the men with him, and went into the house of the king under the treasury, and took there rags and worn-out garments, and let them down by cords into the dungeon to Yirmeyahu. 12 `Eved-Melekh the Kushite said to Yirmeyahu, Put now these rags and worn-out garments under your armholes under the cords. Yirmeyahu did so. 13 So they drew up Yirmeyahu with the cords, and took him up out of the dungeon: and Yirmeyahu remained in the court of the guard. 14 Then Tzidkiyahu the king sent, and took Yirmeyahu the prophet to him into the third entry that is in the house of the LORD: and the king said to Yirmeyahu, I will ask you a thing; hide nothing from me. 15 Then Yirmeyahu said to Tzidkiyahu, If I declare it to you, will you not surely put me to death? and if I give you counsel, you will not listen to me. 16 So Tzidkiyahu the king swore secretly to Yirmeyahu, saying, As the LORD lives, who made us this soul, I will not put you to death, neither will I give you into the hand of these men who seek your life. 17 Then said Yirmeyahu to Tzidkiyahu, Thus says the LORD, the God Tzva’ot,, the God of Yisra’el: If you will go forth to the king of Bavel’s princes, then your soul shall live, and this city shall not be burned with fire; and you shall live, and your house. 18 But if you will not go forth to the king of Bavel’s princes, then shall this city be given into the hand of the Kasdim, and they shall burn it with fire, and you shall not escape out of their hand. 19 Tzidkiyahu the king said to Yirmeyahu, I am afraid of the Yehudim who are fallen away to the Kasdim, lest they deliver me into their hand, and they mock me. 20 But Yirmeyahu said, They shall not deliver you. Obey, I beg you, the voice of the LORD, in that which I speak to you: so it shall be well with you, and your soul shall live. 21 But if you refuse to go forth, this is the word that the LORD has shown me: 22 behold, all the women who are left in the king of Yehudah’s house shall be brought forth to the king of Bavel’s princes, and those women shall say, Your familiar friends have set you on, and have prevailed over you: [now that] your feet are sunk in the mire, they are turned away back. 23 They shall bring out all your wives and your children to the Kasdim; and you shall not escape out of their hand, but shall be taken by the hand of the king of Bavel: and you shall cause this city to be burned with fire. 24 Then said Tzidkiyahu to Yirmeyahu, Let no man know of these words, and you shall not die. 25 But if the princes hear that I have talked with you, and they come to you, and tell you, Declare to us now what you have said to the king; don’t hide it from us, and we will not put you to death; also what the king said to you: 26 then you shall tell them, I presented my supplication before the king, that he would not cause me to return to Yonatan’s house, to die there. 27  Then came all the princes to Yirmeyahu, and asked him; and he told them according to all these words that the king had commanded. So they left off speaking with him; for the matter was not perceived. 28 So Yirmeyahu abode in the court of the guard until the day that Yerushalayim was taken.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 6:1 – 21

6:1 Let as many as are bondservants under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, that the name of God and the doctrine not be blasphemed. 

2 Those who have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brothers, but rather let them serve them, because those who partake of the benefit are believing and beloved. Teach and exhort these things. 

3 If anyone teaches a different doctrine, and doesn’t consent to sound words, the words of our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 

4 he is conceited, knowing nothing, but obsessed with arguments, disputes, and word battles, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, 

5 constant friction of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. Withdraw yourself from such. 

6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 

7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we certainly can’t carry anything out. 

8 But having food and clothing, we will be content with that. 

9 But those who are determined to be rich fall into a temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful lusts, such as drown men in ruin and destruction.

10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some have been led astray from the faith in their greed, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 

11 But you, man of God, flee these things, and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, and gentleness. 

12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Lay hold of the eternal life, whereunto you were called, and confessed the good confession in the sight of many witnesses. 

13 I charge you in the sight of God, who gives life to all things, and of Messiah Yeshua, who before Pontius Pilate testified the good confession, 

14 that you keep the mitzvah, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah; 

15 which in its own times he will show, who is the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 

16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and eternal power. Amein. 

17 Charge those who are rich in this present world, that they not be haughty, nor have their hope set on the uncertainty of riches, but on the living God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy; 

18 that they do good, that they be rich in good works, that they be ready to distribute, willing to communicate;

19 laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold of eternal life. 

20 Timothy, guard that which is committed to you, turning away from the empty chatter and oppositions of the knowledge which is falsely so called;

21 which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amein.

PROVERBS: 31

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 35:1 – 36:32

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 5:1 – 25

PSALMS: 31

1 In you, LORD, do I take refuge.

Let me never be put to shame:

Deliver me in your righteousness. 

2 Bow down your ear to me.

Deliver me speedily.

Be to me a strong rock,

A house of defense to save me. 

3 For you are my rock and my fortress,

Therefore for your name’s sake lead me and guide me. 

4 Pluck me out of the net that they have laid secretly for me,

For you are my stronghold. 

5 Into your hand I commend my spirit.

You redeem me, LORD, God of truth.

6 I hate those who regard lying vanities,

But I trust in the LORD. 

7 I will be glad and rejoice in your loving kindness,

For you have seen my affliction.

You have known my soul in adversities. 

8 You have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy.

You have set my feet in a large place. 

9 Have mercy on me, LORD, for I am in distress.

My eye, my soul, and my body waste away with grief. 

10 For my life is spent with sorrow,

My years with sighing.

My strength fails because of my iniquity.

My bones are wasted away. 

11 Because of all my adversaries

I have become utterly contemptible to my neighbors,

A fear to my acquaintances.

Those who saw me on the street fled from me. 

12 I am forgotten from their hearts like a dead man.

I am like broken pottery. 

13 For I have heard the slander of many, terror on every side,

While they conspire together against me,

They plot to take away my life. 

14 But I trust in you, LORD.

I said, You are my God.

15 My times are in your hand.

Deliver me from the hand of my enemies,

and from those who persecute me. 

16 Make your face to shine on your servant.

Save me in your loving kindness. 

17 Let me not be put to shame, LORD,

for I have called on you.

Let the wicked be put to shame.

Let them be silent in She’ol. 

18 Let the lying lips be mute,

Which speak against the righteous insolently,

with pride and contempt. 

19 Oh how great is your goodness,

Which you have laid up for those who fear you,

‘Which you have worked for those who take refuge in you,

Before the sons of men! 

20 In the covert of your presence will you hide them from the plotting of man.

You will keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. 

21 Praise be to the LORD,

For he has shown me his marvelous loving kindness in a strong city. 

22 As for me, I said in my haste,

“I am cut off from before your eyes.”

Nevertheless you heard the voice of my petitions when I cried to you. 

23 Oh love the LORD, all you his holy ones!

The LORD preserves the faithful,

And pays back him who deals proudly in full. 

24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage,

All you who hope in the LORD.

PSALMS: 61

1 Hear my cry, God.

Listen to my prayer. 

2 From the end of the eretz,

I will call to you, when my heart is overwhelmed.

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 

3 For you have been a refuge for me,

A strong tower from the enemy. 

4 I will dwell in your tent forever.

I will take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

Selah. 

5 For you, God, have heard my vows.

You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name. 

6 You will prolong the king’s life;

His years shall be for generations. 

7 He shall be enthroned in God’s presence forever.

Appoint your loving kindness and truth,

that they may preserve him.

8 So I will sing praise to your name forever,

That I may fulfill my vows daily.

PSALMS: 91

1 He who dwells in the secret place of Ha`Elyon

Will rest in the shadow of Shaddai. 

2 I will say of the LORD,

“He is my refuge and my fortress;

My God, in whom I trust.” 

3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler,

From the deadly pestilence. 

4 He will cover you with his pinions.

Under his wings you will take refuge.

His truth is a shield and a buckler. 

5 You will not be afraid of the terror by night,

Nor of the arrow that flies by day; 

6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,

Nor of the destruction that wastes at noonday. 

7 A thousand may fall at your side,

And ten thousand at your right hand;

But it will not come near you. 

8 You will only look with your eyes,

And see the reward of the wicked. 

9 For you, LORD, are my refuge!

You have made Ha`Elyon your habitation. 

10 No evil shall happen to you,

Neither shall any plague come near your dwelling. 

11 For he will give his angels charge over you,

To guard you in all your ways.

12 They will bear you up in their hands,

So that you won’t dash your foot against a stone. 

13 You will tread on the lion and cobra.

You will trample the young lion and the serpent underfoot. 

14 “Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him.

I will set him on high, because he has known my name. 

15 He will call on me, and I will answer him.

I will be with him in trouble.

I will deliver him, and honor him. 

16 I will satisfy him with long life,

And show him my yeshu`ah.”

PSALMS: 121

1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills.

Where does my help come from? 

2 My help comes from the LORD,

Who made heaven and eretz. 

3 He will not allow your foot to be moved.

He who keeps you will not slumber. 

4 Behold, he who keeps Yisra’el

Will neither slumber nor sleep. 

5 The LORD is your keeper.

The LORD is your shade on your right hand. 

6 The sun will not harm you by day,

Nor the moon by night. 

7 The LORD will keep you from all evil.

He will keep your soul. 

8 The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in,

From this time forth, and forevermore.

PROVERBS: 31

1 The words of king Lemo’el;

the oracle which his mother taught him. 

2 “Oh, my son!” Oh, son of my womb!

Oh, son of my vows! 

3 Don’t give your strength to women,

Nor your ways to that which destroys kings. 

4 It is not for kings, Lemo’el;

it is not for kings to drink wine;

Nor for princes to say, ‘Where is strong drink?’ 

5 Lest they drink, and forget the law,

And pervert the justice due to anyone who is afflicted. 

6 Give strong drink to him who is ready to perish;

And wine to the bitter in soul: 

7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty,

And remember his misery no more. 

8 Open your mouth for the mute,

In the cause of all who are left desolate. 

9 Open your mouth, judge righteously,

And serve justice to the poor and needy.” 

10 Who can find a worthy woman?

For her price is far above rubies. 

11 The heart of her husband trusts in her.

He shall have no lack of gain. 

12 She does him good, and not harm,

All the days of her life. 

13 She seeks wool and flax,

And works eagerly with her hands. 

14 She is like the merchant ships.

She brings her bread from afar. 

15 She rises also while it is yet night,

Gives food to her household,

And portions for her servant girls. 

16 She considers a field, and buys it.

With the fruit of her hands, she plants a vineyard. 

17 She girds her loins with strength,

And makes her arms strong. 

18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.

Her lamp doesn’t go out by night.

19 She lays her hands to the distaff,

And her hands hold the spindle. 

20 She opens her arms to the poor;

Yes, she extends her hands to the needy. 

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household;

For all her household are clothed with scarlet. 

22 She makes for herself carpets of tapestry.

Her clothing is fine linen and purple. 

23 Her husband is respected in the gates,

When he sits among the Zakenim of the land. 

24 She makes linen garments and sells them,

And delivers sashes to the merchant. 

25 Strength and dignity are her clothing.

She laughs at the time to come. 

26 She opens her mouth with wisdom.

Faithful instruction is on her tongue.

27 She looks well to the ways of her household,

And doesn’t eat the bread of idleness. 

28 Her children rise up and call her blessed.

Her husband also praises her: 

29 “Many women do noble things,

But you excel them all.” 

30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain;

But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. 

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands;

Let her works praise her in the gates.

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 35:1 – 36:32

35:1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD during the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah: 2 “Go to the Rekabite family and invite them to come to one of the side rooms of the house of the LORD and give them wine to drink.” 

3 So I went to get Jaazaniah son of Jeremiah, the son of Habazziniah, and his brothers and all his sons—the whole family of the Rekabites. 4 I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the room of the sons of Hanan son of Igdaliah the man of God. It was next to the room of the officials, which was over that of Maaseiah son of Shallum the doorkeeper. 5 Then I set bowls full of wine and some cups before the Rekabites and said to them, “Drink some wine.” 6 But they replied, “We do not drink wine, because our forefather Jehonadab son of Rekab gave us this command: ‘Neither you nor your descendants must ever drink wine. 7 Also you must never build houses, sow seed or plant vineyards; you must never have any of these things, but must always live in tents. Then you will live a long time in the land where you are nomads.’ 8 We have obeyed everything our forefather Jehonadab son of Rekab commanded us. Neither we nor our wives nor our sons and daughters have ever drunk wine 9 or built houses to live in or had vineyards, fields or crops. 10 We have lived in tents and have fully obeyed everything our forefather Jehonadab commanded us. 11 But when Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon invaded this land, we said, ‘Come, we must go to Jerusalem to escape the Babylonian and Aramean armies.’ So we have remained in Jerusalem.” 12 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying: 13 “This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go and tell the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘Will you not learn a lesson and obey my words?’ declares the LORD. 14 ‘Jehonadab son of Rekab ordered his descendants not to drink wine and this command has been kept. To this day they do not drink wine, because they obey their forefather’s command. But I have spoken to you again and again, yet you have not obeyed me. 15 Again and again I sent all my servants the prophets to you. They said, “Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. Then you will live in the land I have given to you and your ancestors.” But you have not paid attention or listened to me. 16 The descendants of Jehonadab son of Rekab have carried out the command their forefather gave them, but these people have not obeyed me.’ 

17 “Therefore this is what the LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘Listen! I am going to bring on Judah and on everyone living in Jerusalem every disaster I pronounced against them. I spoke to them, but they did not listen; I called to them, but they did not answer.’ ” 18 Then Jeremiah said to the family of the Rekabites, “This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘You have obeyed the command of your forefather Jehonadab and have followed all his instructions and have done everything he ordered.’ 19 Therefore this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘Jehonadab son of Rekab will never fail to have a descendant to serve me.’ ”

36:1 In the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD: 2 “Take a scroll and write on it all the words I have spoken to you concerning Israel, Judah and all the other nations from the time I began speaking to you in the reign of Josiah till now. 3 Perhaps when the people of Judah hear about every disaster I plan to inflict on them, they will each turn from their wicked ways; then I will forgive their wickedness and their sin.” 4 So Jeremiah called Baruch son of Neriah, and while Jeremiah dictated all the words the LORD had spoken to him, Baruch wrote them on the scroll. 5 Then Jeremiah told Baruch, “I am restricted; I am not allowed to go to the LORD’s temple. 6 So you go to the house of the LORD on a day of fasting and read to the people from the scroll the words of the LORD that you wrote as I dictated. Read them to all the people of Judah who come in from their towns. 7 Perhaps they will bring their petition before the LORD and will each turn from their wicked ways, for the anger and wrath pronounced against this people by the LORD are great.” 8 Baruch son of Neriah did everything Jeremiah the prophet told him to do; at the LORD’s temple he read the words of the LORD from the scroll. 9 In the ninth month of the fifth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, a time of fasting before the LORD was proclaimed for all the people in Jerusalem and those who had come from the towns of Judah. 10 From the room of Gemariah son of Shaphan the secretary, which was in the upper courtyard at the entrance of the New Gate of the temple, Baruch read to all the people at the LORD’s temple the words of Jeremiah from the scroll. 11 When Micaiah son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, heard all the words of the LORD from the scroll, 12 he went down to the secretary’s room in the royal palace, where all the officials were sitting: Elishama the secretary, Delaiah son of Shemaiah, Elnathan son of Akbor, Gemariah son of Shaphan, Zedekiah son of Hananiah, and all the other officials. 13 After Micaiah told them everything he had heard Baruch read to the people from the scroll, 14 all the officials sent Jehudi son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, to say to Baruch, “Bring the scroll from which you have read to the people and come.” So Baruch son of Neriah went to them with the scroll in his hand. 

15 They said to him, “Sit down, please, and read it to us.” So Baruch read it to them. 16 When they heard all these words, they looked at each other in fear and said to Baruch, “We must report all these words to the king.” 17  Then they asked Baruch, “Tell us, how did you come to write all this? Did Jeremiah dictate it?” 18 “Yes,” Baruch replied, “he dictated all these words to me, and I wrote them in ink on the scroll.”19 Then the officials said to Baruch, “You and Jeremiah, go and hide. Don’t let anyone know where you are.” 20 After they put the scroll in the room of Elishama the secretary, they went to the king in the courtyard and reported everything to him. 21 The king sent Jehudi to get the scroll, and Jehudi brought it from the room of Elishama the secretary and read it to the king and all the officials standing beside him. 22 It was the ninth month and the king was sitting in the winter apartment, with a fire burning in the firepot in front of him. 23 Whenever Jehudi had read three or four columns of the scroll, the king cut them off with a scribe’s knife and threw them into the firepot, until the entire scroll was burned in the fire. 24 The king and all his attendants who heard all these words showed no fear, nor did they tear their clothes. 25 Even though Elnathan, Delaiah and Gemariah urged the king not to burn the scroll, he would not listen to them. 26 Instead, the king commanded Jerahmeel, a son of the king, Seraiah son of Azriel and Shelemiah son of Abdeel to arrest Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet. But the LORD had hidden them. 27 After the king burned the scroll containing the words that Baruch had written at Jeremiah’s dictation, the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: 28 “Take another scroll and write on it all the words that were on the first scroll, which Jehoiakim king of Judah burned up. 29 Also tell Jehoiakim king of Judah, ‘This is what the LORD says: You burned that scroll and said, “Why did you write on it that the king of Babylon would certainly come and destroy this land and wipe from it both man and beast?” 30 Therefore this is what the LORD says about Jehoiakim king of Judah: He will have no one to sit on the throne of David; his body will be thrown out and exposed to the heat by day and the frost by night. 31 I will punish him and his children and his attendants for their wickedness; I will bring on them and those living in Jerusalem and the people of Judah every disaster I pronounced against them, because they have not listened.’ ” 32 So Jeremiah took another scroll and gave it to the scribe Baruch son of Neriah, and as Jeremiah dictated, Baruch wrote on it all the words of the scroll that Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire. And many similar words were added to them.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 5:1 – 25

Widows, Elders and Slaves

1 Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, 

2 older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity. 

3 Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. 

4 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 

5 The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help. 

6 But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives. 

7  Give the people these instructions, so that no one may be open to blame. 

8 Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 

9 No widow may be put on the list of widows unless she is over sixty, has been faithful to her husband,

10 and is well known for her good deeds, such as bringing up children, showing hospitality, washing the feet of the Lord’s people, helping those in trouble and devoting herself to all kinds of good deeds. 

11 As for younger widows, do not put them on such a list. For when their sensual desires overcome their dedication to Christ, they want to marry. 

12 Thus they bring judgment on themselves, because they have broken their first pledge. 

13 Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also busybodies who talk nonsense, saying things they ought not to. 

14 So I counsel younger widows to marry, to have children, to manage their homes and to give the enemy no opportunity for slander. 

15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan. 

16 If any woman who is a believer has widows in her care, she should continue to help them and not let the church be burdened with them, so that the church can help those widows who are really in need. 

17 The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. 

18 For Scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and “The worker deserves his wages.” 

19 Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses. 

20 But those elders who are sinning you are to reprove before everyone, so that the others may take warning. 

21 I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality, and to do nothing out of favoritism. 

22 Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure. 

23 Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses. 

24 The sins of some are obvious, reaching the place of judgment ahead of them; the sins of others trail behind them. 

25 In the same way, good deeds are obvious, and even those that are not obvious cannot remain hidden forever.

JULY 29

PSALMS: 29, 59, 89, 119, 149

PROVERBS: 29

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 31:27 – 32:44

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 3:1 – 16

PSALMS: 29

1 Ascribe to the LORD, you sons of the mighty,

Ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. 

2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due to his name.

Worship the LORD in holy array. 

3 The voice of LORD is on the waters.

The God of glory thunders, even the LORD on many waters. 

4 The voice of the LORD is powerful.

The voice of the LORD is full of majesty. 

5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars.

Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Levanon. 

6 He makes them also to skip like a calf;

Levanon and Siryon like a young wild ox. 

7 The voice of the LORD strikes with flashes of lightning.

8 The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness.

The LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. 

9 The voice of the LORD makes the deer calve,

And strips the forests bare.

In his temple everything says, “Glory!” 

10 The LORD sat enthroned at the Flood.

Yes, the LORD sits as King forever. 

11 The LORD will give strength to his people.

The LORD will bless his people with shalom.

PSALMS: 59

1 Deliver me from my enemies, my God.

Set me on high from those who rise up against me. 

2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity.

Save me from the bloodthirsty men. 

3 For, behold, they lie in wait for my soul.

The mighty gather themselves together against me,

Not for my disobedience, nor for my sin, LORD. 

4 I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me.

Rise up, behold, and help me! 

5 You, LORD God Tzva’ot, the God of Yisra’el,

Rouse yourself to punish the nations.

Show no mercy to the wicked traitors. Selah.

6 They return at evening, howling like dogs,

And prowl around the city. 

7 Behold, they spew with their mouth.

Swords are in their lips,

“For,” they say, “who hears us?” 

8 But you, LORD, laugh at them.

You scoff at all the nations. 

9 Oh, my Strength, I watch for you,

For God is my high tower. 

10 My God will go before me with his loving kindness.

God will let me look at my enemies in triumph. 

11 Don’t kill them, or my people may forget.

Scatter them by your power, and bring them down,

Lord our shield. 

12 For the sin of their mouth, and the words of their lips,

Let them be caught in their pride,

For the curses and lies which they utter. 

13 Consume them in wrath.

Consume them, and they will be no more.

Let them know that God rules in Ya`akov,

To the ends of the eretz.

Selah. 

14 At evening let them return.

Let them howl like a dog, and go around the city. 

15 They shall wander up and down for food,

And wait all night if they aren’t satisfied. 

16 But I will sing of your strength.

Yes, I will sing aloud of your loving kindness in the morning.

For you have been my high tower,

A refuge in the day of my distress. 

17  To you, my strength, I will sing praises.

For God is my high tower, the God of my mercy.

PSALMS: 89

1 I will sing of the loving kindness of the LORD forever.

With my mouth, I will make known your faithfulness to all generations. 

2 I indeed declare, “Love stands firm forever.

You established the heavens.

Your faithfulness is in them.” 

3 “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,

I have sworn to David, my servant, 

4 ‘I will establish your seed forever,

And build up your throne to all generations.'”

Selah. 

5 The heavens will praise your wonders, LORD;

Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones. 

6 For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD?

Who among the sons of the heavenly beings is like the LORD, 

7 A very awesome God in the council of the holy ones,

To be feared above all those who are around him? 

8 LORD, God Tzva’ot, who is a mighty one, like you?

The LORD, your faithfulness is around you. 

9 You rule the pride of the sea.

When its waves rise up, you calm them. 

10 You have broken Rachav in pieces, like one of the slain.

You have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm. 

11 The heavens are yours, the eretz also is yours;

The world and its fullness.

You have founded them. 

12 The north and the south, you have created them.

Tavor and Hermon rejoice in your name. 

13 You have a mighty arm.

Your hand is strong, and your right hand is exalted. 

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne.

Loving kindness and truth go before your face. 

15 Blessed are the people who learn to acclaim you.

They walk in the light of your presence, LORD. 

16 In your name do they rejoice all day.

In your righteousness, they are exalted. 

17 For you are the glory of their strength.

In your favor, our horn will be exalted. 

18 For our shield belongs to the LORD;

Our king to the Holy One of Yisra’el. 

19 Then you spoke in vision to your holy ones,

And said, “I have bestowed strength on the warrior.

I have exalted a young man from the people.

20 I have found David, my servant.

I have anointed him with my holy oil, 

21 With whom my hand shall be established.

My arm will also strengthen him. 

22 No enemy will tax him.

No wicked man will oppress him. 

23 I will beat down his adversaries before him,

And strike those who hate him. 

24 But my faithfulness and my loving kindness will be with him.

In my name, his horn will be exalted.

25 I will set his hand also on the sea,

And his right hand on the rivers. 

26 He will call to me, ‘You are my Father,

My God, and the rock of my salvation!’ 

27 I will also appoint him my firstborn,

The highest of the kings of the eretz. 

28 I will keep my loving kindness for him forevermore.

My covenant will stand firm with him. 

29 I will also make his seed endure forever,

And his throne as the days of heaven.

30 If his children forsake my law,

And don’t walk in my ordinances;

31 If they break my statutes,

And don’t keep my mitzvot; 

32 Then I will punish their sin with the rod,

And their iniquity with stripes. 

33 But I will not completely take my loving kindness from him,

Nor allow my faithfulness to fail. 

34 I will not break my covenant,

Nor alter what my lips have uttered. 

35 Once have I sworn by my holiness,

I will not lie to David. 

36 His seed will endure forever,

His throne like the sun before me. 

37 It will be established forever like the moon,

The faithful witness in the sky.”

Selah. 

38 But you have rejected and spurned.

You have been angry with your anointed. 

39 You have renounced the covenant of your servant.

You have defiled his crown in the dust. 

40 You have broken down all his hedges.

You have brought his strongholds to ruin. 

41 All who pass by the way rob him.

He has become a reproach to his neighbors. 

42 You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries.

You have made all of his enemies rejoice. 

43 Yes, you turn back the edge of his sword,

And haven’t supported him in battle. 

44 You have ended his splendor,

And thrown his throne down to the ground. 

45 You have shortened the days of his youth.

You have covered him with shame.

Selah. 

46How long, LORD?

Will you hide yourself forever?

Will your wrath burn like fire? 

47 Remember how short my time is!

For what vanity have you created all the children of men! 

48 What man is he who shall live and not see death,

Who shall deliver his soul from the power of She’ol?

Selah. 

49 Lord, where are your former loving kindnesses,

Which you swore to David in your faithfulness? 

50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of your servants,

How I bear in my heart the taunts of all the mighty peoples, 

51 With which your enemies have mocked, LORD,

With which they have mocked the footsteps of your anointed one. 

52 Blessed be the LORD forevermore.

Amein, and Amein.

PSALMS: 119

1 Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,

Who walk according to the law of the LORD. 

2 Blessed are those who keep his statutes,

Who seek him with their whole heart. 

3 Yes, they do nothing wrong.

They walk in his ways. 

4 You have commanded your precepts,

That we should fully obey them. 

5 Oh that my ways were steadfast

To obey your statutes! 

6 Then I wouldn’t be put to shame,

When I consider all of your mitzvot. 

7  I will give thanks to you with uprightness of heart,

When I learn your righteous judgments. 

8 I will observe your statutes.

Don’t utterly forsake me. 

9 How can a young man keep his way pure?

By living according to your word. 

10 With my whole heart, I have sought you.

Don’t let me wander from your mitzvot. 

11 I have hidden your word in my heart,

That I might not sin against you. 

12 Blessed are you, LORD.

Teach me your statutes.

13 With my lips, I have declared all the ordinances of your mouth.

14 I have rejoiced in the way of your testimonies,

As much as in all riches. 

15 I will meditate on your precepts,

And consider your ways.

16 I will delight myself in your statutes.

I will not forget your word.

17 Do good to your servant.

I will live and I will obey your word.

18 Open my eyes,

That I may see wondrous things out of your law.

19 I am a stranger on the eretz.

Don’t hide your mitzvot from me.

20 My soul is consumed with longing for your ordinances at all times. 

21 You have rebuked the proud who are cursed,

Who wander from your mitzvot. 

22 Take reproach and contempt away from me,

For I have kept your statutes. 

23 Though princes sit and slander me,

Your servant will meditate on your statutes. 

24 Indeed your statutes are my delight,

And my counselors. 

25 My soul is laid low in the dust.

Revive me according to your word! 

26 I declared my ways, and you answered me.

Teach me your statutes. 

27  Let me understand the teaching of your precepts!

Then I will meditate on your wondrous works. 

28 My soul is weary with sorrow.

Strengthen me according to your word. 

29 Keep me from the way of deceit.

Grant me your law graciously! 

30 I have chosen the way of truth.

I have set my heart on your law. 

31 I cling to your statutes, LORD.

Don’t let me be put to shame. 

32 I run in the path of your mitzvot,

For you have set my heart free. 

33 Teach me, LORD, the way of your statutes.

I will keep them to the end. 

34 Give me understanding, and I will keep your law.

Yes, I will obey it with my whole heart. 

35 Direct me in the path of your mitzvot,

For I delight in them. 

36 Turn my heart toward your statutes,

Not toward selfish gain. 

37 Turn my eyes away from looking at worthless things.

Revive me in your ways. 

38 Fulfill your promise to your servant,

That you may be feared. 

39 Take away my disgrace that I dread,

For your ordinances are good.

40 Behold, I long for your precepts!

Revive me in your righteousness. 

41 Let your loving kindness also come to me, LORD,

Your yeshu`ah, according to your word. 

42 So I will have an answer for him who reproaches me,

For I trust in your word. 

43 Don’t snatch the word of truth out of my mouth,

For I put my hope in your ordinances. 

44 So I will obey your law continually,

Forever and ever.

45 I will walk in liberty,

For I have sought your precepts. 

46 I will also speak of your statutes before kings,

And will not be put to shame.

47 I will delight myself in your mitzvot,

Because I love them. 

48 I reach out my hands for your mitzvot, which I love.

I will meditate on your statutes. 

49 Remember your word to your servant,

Because you gave me hope. 

50 This is my comfort in my affliction,

For your word has revived me. 

51 The arrogant mock me excessively,

But I don’t swerve from your law. 

52 I remember your ordinances of old, LORD,

And have comforted myself. 

53 Indignation has taken hold on me,

Because of the wicked who forsake your law. 

54 Your statutes have been my songs,

In the house where I live. 

55 I have remembered your name, LORD, in the night,

And I obey your law.

56 This is my way,

That I keep your precepts. 

57 The LORD is my portion.

I promised to obey your words. 

58 I sought your favor with my whole heart.

Be merciful to me according to your word. 

59 I considered my ways,

And turned my steps to your statutes. 

60 I will hurry, and not delay,

To obey your mitzvot. 

61 The ropes of the wicked bind me,

But I won’t forget your law. 

62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks to you,

Because of your righteous ordinances. 

63 I am a friend of all those who fear you,

Of those who observe your precepts. 

64 The eretz is full of your loving kindness, LORD.

Teach me your statutes. 

65 Do good to your servant,

According to your word, LORD. 

66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge,

For I believe in your mitzvot. 

67 Before I was afflicted, I went astray;

But now I observe your word. 

68 You are good, and do good.

Teach me your statutes. 

69 The proud have smeared a lie upon me.

With my whole heart,

I will keep your precepts. 

70 Their heart is as callous as the fat,

But I delight in your law. 

71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted,

That I may learn your statutes. 

72 The law of your mouth is better to me

than thousands of pieces of gold and silver.

73 Your hands have made me and formed me.

Give me understanding, that I may learn your mitzvot. 

74 Those who fear you will see me and be glad,

Because I have put my hope in your word.

75 LORD, I know that your judgments are righteous,

That in faithfulness you have afflicted me. 

76 Please let your loving kindness be for my comfort,

According to your word to your servant. 

77 Let your tender mercies come to me, that I may live;

For your law is my delight. 

78 Let the proud be put to shame,

for they have overthrown me wrongfully.

I will meditate on your precepts. 

79 Let those who fear you turn to me.

They will know your statutes. 

80 Let my heart be blameless toward your decrees,

That I may not be put to shame.

81 My soul faints for your salvation.

I hope in your word. 

82 My eyes fail for your word.

I say, “When will you comfort me?” 

83 For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke.

I don’t forget your statutes.

84 How many are the days of your servant?

When will you execute judgment on those who persecute me? 

85 The proud have dug pits for me,

Contrary to your law. 

86 All of your mitzvot are faithful.

They persecute me wrongfully.

Help me! 

87 They had almost wiped me from the eretz,

But I didn’t forsake your precepts. 

88 Preserve my life according to your loving kindness,

So I will obey the statutes of your mouth. 

89 LORD, your word is settled in heaven forever. 

90 Your faithfulness is to all generations.

You have established the eretz, and it remains. 

91 Your laws remain to this day,

For all things serve you. 

92 Unless your law had been my delight,

I would have perished in my affliction. 

93 I will never forget your precepts,

For with them, you have revived me. 

94 I am yours. Save me,

For I have sought your precepts. 

95 The wicked have waited for me, to destroy me.

I will consider your statutes. 

96 I have seen a limit to all perfection,

But your commands are boundless. 

97 How love I your law!

It is my meditation all day. 

98 Your mitzvot make me wiser than my enemies,

For your mitzvot are always with me. 

99 I have more understanding than all my teachers,

For your testimonies are my meditation. 

100 I understand more than the aged,

Because I have kept your precepts. 

101 I have kept my feet from every evil way,

That I might observe your word. 

102 I have not turned aside from your ordinances,

For you have taught me. 

103 How sweet are your promises to my taste,

More than honey to my mouth! 

104 Through your precepts,

I get understanding;

Therefore I hate every false way.

105 Your word is a lamp to my feet,

And a light for my path. 

106 I have sworn, and have confirmed it,

That I will obey your righteous ordinances. 

107 I am afflicted very much.

Revive me, LORD, according to your word. 

108 Accept, I beg you, the willing offerings of my mouth.

LORD, teach me your ordinances. 

109 My soul is continually in my hand,

Yet I won’t forget your law. 

110 The wicked have laid a snare for me,

Yet I haven’t gone astray from your precepts.

111 I have taken your testimonies as a heritage forever,

For they are the joy of my heart. 

112 I have set my heart to perform your statutes forever,

Even to the end. 

113 I hate double-minded men,

But I love your law. 

114 You are my hiding place and my shield.

I hope in your word. 

115 Depart from me, you evildoers,

That I may keep the mitzvot of my God. 

116 Uphold me according to your word, that I may live.

Let me not be ashamed of my hope. 

117 Hold me up, and I will be safe,

And will have respect for your statutes continually. 

118 You reject all those who stray from your statutes,

For their deceit is in vain. 

119 You put away all the wicked of the eretz like dross.

Therefore I love your testimonies. 

120 My flesh trembles for fear of you.

I am afraid of your judgments. 

121 I have done what is just and righteous.

Don’t leave me to my oppressors. 

122 Ensure your servant’s well-being.

Don’t let the proud oppress me. 

123 My eyes fail watching for your yeshu`ah,

For your righteous word. 

124 Deal with your servant according to your loving kindness.

Teach me your statutes. 

125 I am your servant.

Give me understanding,

That I may know your testimonies. 

126 It is time to act, LORD,

For they break your law. 

127 Therefore I love your mitzvot more than gold,

Yes, more than pure gold. 

128 Therefore I consider all of your precepts to be right.

I hate every false way. 

129 Your testimonies are wonderful,

Therefore my soul keeps them. 

130 The entrance of your words gives light.

It gives understanding to the simple. 

131 I opened my mouth wide and panted,

For I longed for your mitzvot. 

132 Turn to me, and have mercy on me,

As you always do to those who love your name. 

133 Establish my footsteps in your word.

Don’t let any iniquity have dominion over me. 

134 Redeem me from the oppression of man,

So I will observe your precepts. 

135 Make your face to shine on your servant.

Teach me your statutes. 

136 Streams of tears run down my eyes,

Because they don’t observe your law.

137 You are righteous, LORD.

your judgments are upright. 

138 You have commanded your statutes in righteousness.

They are fully trustworthy. 

139 My zeal wears me out,

Because my enemies ignore your words. 

140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested,

And your servant loves them. 

141 I am small and despised.

I don’t forget your precepts. 

142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness.

Your law is truth. 

143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold of me.

Your mitzvot are my delight. 

144 Your testimonies are righteous forever.

Give me understanding, that I may live. 

145 I have called with my whole heart.

Answer me, LORD!

I will keep your statutes. 

146 I have called to you. Save me!

I will obey your statutes. 

147 I rise before dawn and cry for help.

I put my hope in your words. 

148 My eyes stay open through the night watches,

That I might meditate on your word. 

149 Hear my voice according to your loving kindness.

Revive me, LORD, according to your ordinances.

150 They draw near who follow after wickedness.

They are far from your law. 

151 You are near, LORD.

All your mitzvot are truth. 

152 Of old I have known from your testimonies,

That you have founded them forever. 

153 Consider my affliction, and deliver me,

For I don’t forget your law. 

154 Plead my cause, and redeem me!

Revive me according to your promise. 

155 Salvation is far from the wicked,

For they don’t seek your statutes. 

156 Great are your tender mercies, LORD.

Revive me according to your ordinances. 

157 Many are my persecutors and my adversaries.

I haven’t swerved from your testimonies. 

158 I look at the faithless with loathing,

Because they don’t observe your word. 

159 Consider how I love your precepts.

Revive me, LORD, according to your loving kindness. 

160 All of your words are truth.

Every one of your righteous ordinances endures forever. 

161 Princes have persecuted me without a cause,

But my heart stands in awe of your words. 

162 I rejoice at your word,

As one who finds great spoil. 

163 I hate and abhor falsehood.

I love your law. 

164 Seven times a day, I praise you,

Because of your righteous ordinances. 

165 Those who love your law have great shalom.

Nothing causes them to stumble. 

166 I have hoped for your yeshu`ah, LORD.

I have done your mitzvot. 

167 My soul has observed your testimonies.

I love them exceedingly. 

168 I have obeyed your precepts and your testimonies,

For all my ways are before you. 

169 Let my cry come before you, LORD.

Give me understanding according to your word. 

170 Let my supplication come before you.

Deliver me according to your word. 

171 Let my lips utter praise,

For you teach me your statutes. 

172 Let my tongue sing of your word,

For all your mitzvot are righteousness. 

173 Let your hand be ready to help me,

For I have chosen your precepts.

174 I have longed for your yeshu`ah, LORD.

Your law is my delight.

175 Let my soul live, that I may praise you.

Let your ordinances help me. 

176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep.

Seek your servant, for I don’t forget your mitzvot.

PROVERBS: 29

1 He who is often rebuked and stiffens his neck

Will be destroyed suddenly, with no remedy. 

2 When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice;

But when the wicked rule, the people groan. 

3 Whoever loves wisdom brings joy to his father;

But a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth. 

4 The king by justice makes the land stable,

But he who takes bribes tears it down. 

5 A man who flatters his neighbor,

Spreads a net for his feet. 

6 An evil man is snared by his sin,

But the righteous can sing and be glad. 

7 The righteous care about justice for the poor.

The wicked aren’t concerned about knowledge. 

8 Mockers stir up a city,

But wise men turn away anger.

9 If a wise man goes to court with a foolish man,

The fool rages or scoffs, and there is no shalom. 

10 The bloodthirsty hate a man of integrity;

And they seek the life of the upright. 

11 A fool vents all of his anger,

But a wise man brings himself under control. 

12 If a ruler listens to lies,

All of his officials are wicked. 

13 The poor man and the oppressor have this in common:

The LORD gives sight to the eyes of both. 

14 The king who fairly judges the poor,

His throne shall be established forever. 

15 The rod of correction gives wisdom,

But a child left to himself causes shame to his mother. 

16 When the wicked increase, sin increases;

But the righteous will see their downfall. 

17  Correct your son, and he will give you shalom;

Yes, he will bring delight to your soul. 

18 Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;

But one who keeps the law is blessed. 

19 A servant can’t be corrected by words.

Though he understands, yet he will not respond. 

20 Do you see a man who is hasty in his words?

There is more hope for a fool than for him. 

21 He who pampers his servant from youth

Will have him become a son in the end. 

22 An angry man stirs up strife,

And a wrathful man abounds in sin. 

23 A man’s pride brings him low,

But one who is of a lowly spirit gains honor. 

24 Whoever is an accomplice of a thief is an enemy of his own soul.

He takes an oath, but dares not testify. 

25 The fear of man proves to be a snare,

But whoever puts his trust in the LORD is kept safe. 

26 Many seek the ruler’s favor,

But a man’s justice comes from the LORD. 

27 A dishonest man detests the righteous,

And the upright in their ways detest the wicked.

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 31:27 – 32:44

31:27 “The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will plant the kingdoms of Israel and Judah with the offspring of people and of animals. 28 Just as I watched over them to uproot and tear down, and to overthrow, destroy and bring disaster, so I will watch over them to build and to plant,” declares the LORD. 29 “In those days people will no longer say, ‘The parents have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.’ 30 Instead, everyone will die for their own sin; whoever eats sour grapes—their own teeth will be set on edge. 31 “The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them, ” declares the LORD. 33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 34 No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the LORD,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the LORD. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” 35 This is what the LORD says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the LORD Almighty is his name: 36 “Only if these decrees vanish from my sight,” declares the LORD, “will Israel ever cease being a nation before me.” 37 This is what the LORD says: “Only if the heavens above can be measured and the foundations of the earth below be searched out will I reject all the descendants of Israel because of all they have done,” declares the LORD. 38 “The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when this city will be rebuilt for me from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate. 39 The measuring line will stretch from there straight to the hill of Gareb and then turn to Goah. 40 The whole valley where dead bodies and ashes are thrown, and all the terraces out to the Kidron Valley on the east as far as the corner of the Horse Gate, will be holy to the LORD. The city will never again be uprooted or demolished.”

32:1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar. 2 The army of the king of Babylon was then besieging Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was confined in the courtyard of the guard in the royal palace of Judah. 3 Now Zedekiah king of Judah had imprisoned him there, saying, “Why do you prophesy as you do? You say, ‘This is what the LORD says: I am about to give this city into the hands of the king of Babylon, and he will capture it. 4 Zedekiah king of Judah will not escape the Babylonians but will certainly be given into the hands of the king of Babylon, and will speak with him face to face and see him with his own eyes. 5 He will take Zedekiah to Babylon, where he will remain until I deal with him, declares the LORD. If you fight against the Babylonians, you will not succeed.’ ” 6 Jeremiah said, “The word of the LORD came to me: 7Hanamel son of Shallum your uncle is going to come to you and say, ‘Buy my field at Anathoth, because as nearest relative it is your right and duty to buy it.’ 8 “Then, just as the LORD had said, my cousin Hanamel came to me in the courtyard of the guard and said, ‘Buy my field at Anathoth in the territory of Benjamin. Since it is your right to redeem it and possess it, buy it for yourself.’ “I knew that this was the word of the LORD; 9 so I bought the field at Anathoth from my cousin Hanamel and weighed out for him seventeen shekels of silver. 10 I signed and sealed the deed, had it witnessed, and weighed out the silver on the scales. 11 I took the deed of purchase—the sealed copy containing the terms and conditions, as well as the unsealed copy— 12 and I gave this deed to Baruch son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, in the presence of my cousin Hanamel and of the witnesses who had signed the deed and of all the Jews sitting in the courtyard of the guard. 13 “In their presence I gave Baruch these instructions: 14 ‘This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Take these documents, both the sealed and unsealed copies of the deed of purchase, and put them in a clay jar so they will last a long time. 15 For this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Houses, fields and vineyards will again be bought in this land.’ 16 “After I had given the deed of purchase to Baruch son of Neriah, I prayed to the LORD: 17 “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you. 18 You show love to thousands but bring the punishment for the parents’ sins into the laps of their children after them. Great and mighty God, whose name is the LORD Almighty, 19 great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to the ways of all mankind; you reward each person according to their conduct and as their deeds deserve. 20 You performed signs and wonders in Egypt and have continued them to this day, in Israel and among all mankind, and have gained the renown that is still yours. 21 You brought your people Israel out of Egypt with signs and wonders, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with great terror. 22 You gave them this land you had sworn to give their ancestors, a land flowing with milk and honey. 23 They came in and took possession of it, but they did not obey you or follow your law; they did not do what you commanded them to do. So you brought all this disaster on them. 24 “See how the siege ramps are built up to take the city. Because of the sword, famine and plague, the city will be given into the hands of the Babylonians who are attacking it. What you said has happened, as you now see. 25 And though the city will be given into the hands of the Babylonians, you, Sovereign LORD, say to me, ‘Buy the field with silver and have the transaction witnessed.’ ” 26 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: 27 “I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? 28 Therefore this is what the LORD says: I am about to give this city into the hands of the Babylonians and to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, who will capture it. 29 The Babylonians who are attacking this city will come in and set it on fire; they will burn it down, along with the houses where the people aroused my anger by burning incense on the roofs to Baal and by pouring out drink offerings to other gods. 30 “The people of Israel and Judah have done nothing but evil in my sight from their youth; indeed, the people of Israel have done nothing but arouse my anger with what their hands have made, declares the LORD. 31 From the day it was built until now, this city has so aroused my anger and wrath that I must remove it from my sight. 32 The people of Israel and Judah have provoked me by all the evil they have done—they, their kings and officials, their priests and prophets, the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem. 33 They turned their backs to me and not their faces; though I taught them again and again, they would not listen or respond to discipline. 34 They set up their vile images in the house that bears my Name and defiled it. 35 They built high places for Baal in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molek, though I never commanded—nor did it enter my mind—that they should do such a detestable thing and so make Judah sin. 36 “You are saying about this city, ‘By the sword, famine and plague it will be given into the hands of the king of Babylon’; but this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 37 I will surely gather them from all the lands where I banish them in my furious anger and great wrath; I will bring them back to this place and let them live in safety. 38 They will be my people, and I will be their God. 39 I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me and that all will then go well for them and for their children after them. 40 I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me. 41 I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul. 42 “This is what the LORD says: As I have brought all this great calamity on this people, so I will give them all the prosperity I have promised them. 43Once more fields will be bought in this land of which you say, ‘It is a desolate waste, without people or animals, for it has been given into the hands of the Babylonians.’ 44 Fields will be bought for silver, and deeds will be signed, sealed and witnessed in the territory of Benjamin, in the villages around Jerusalem, in the towns of Judah and in the towns of the hill country, of the western foothills and of the Negev, because I will restore their fortunes, declares the LORD.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 3:1 – 16

Qualifications for Overseers and Deacons

3:1 Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. 

2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 

3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 

4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. 

5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) 

6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. 

7  He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap. 

8 In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. 

9 They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. 

10 They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. 

11 In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. 

12 A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well. 

13 Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.

Reasons for Paul’s Instructions

14 Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, 

15 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. 

16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.

PSALMS: 28, 58, 88, 118, 148

PROVERBS: 28

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 30:1 – 31:26

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 2:1 – 15

PSALMS: 28

1 To you, LORD, I call.

My rock, don’t be deaf to me;

Lest, if you are silent to me,

I would become like those who go down into the pit.

2 Hear the voice of my petitions, when I cry to you,

When I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place. 

3 Don’t draw me away with the wicked,

With the workers of iniquity who speak shalom with their neighbors,

But mischief is in their hearts. 

4 Give them according to their work,

and according to the wickedness of their doings.

Give them according to the operation of their hands.

Bring back on them what they deserve. 

5 Because they don’t regard the works of the LORD,

Nor the operation of his hands,

He will break them down and not build them up. 

6 Blessed be the LORD,

Because he has heard the voice of my petitions. 

7  The LORD is my strength and my shield.

My heart has trusted in him, and I am helped.

Therefore my heart greatly rejoices.

With my song I will thank him. 

8 The LORD is their strength.

He is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed. 

9 Save your people, and bless your inheritance.

Be their shepherd also, and bear them up forever.

PSALMS: 58

1 Do you indeed speak righteousness, silent ones?

Do you judge blamelessly, you sons of men? 

2 No, in your heart you plot injustice.

You measure out the violence of your hands in the eretz. 

3 The wicked go astray from the womb.

They are wayward as soon as they are born, speaking lies. 

4 Their poison is like the poison of a snake;

Like a deaf cobra that stops its ear, 

5 Which doesn’t listen to the voice of charmers,

No matter how skillful the charmer may be. 

6Break their teeth, God, in their mouth.

Break out the great teeth of the young lions, LORD. 

7 Let them vanish as water that flows away.

When they draw the bow, let their arrows be made blunt. 

8 Let them be as a snail which melts and passes away,

Like the stillborn child, who has not seen the sun. 

9 Before your pots can feel the thorns,

He will sweep away, the green and the burning alike. 

10 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance.

He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked; 

11 So that men shall say, “Most assuredly there is a reward for the righteous.

Most assuredly there is a God who judges the eretz.”

PSALMS: 88

1 LORD, the God of my salvation,

I have cried day and night before you. 

2 Let my prayer enter into your presence.

Turn your ear to my cry. 

3 For my soul is full of troubles.

My life draws near to She’ol. 

4 I am counted among those who go down into the pit.

I am like a man who has no help, 

5 Set apart among the dead,

Like the slain who lie in the grave,

Whom you remember no more.

They are cut off from your hand. 

6 You have laid me in the lowest pit,

In the darkest depths. 

7  Your wrath lies heavily on me.

You have afflicted me with all your waves.

Selah. 

8 You have taken my friends from me.

You have made me an abomination to them.

I am confined, and I can’t escape. 

9 My eyes are dim from grief.

I have called on you daily, LORD.

I have spread out my hands to you. 

10 Do you show wonders to the dead?

Do the dead rise up and praise you? Selah.

11 Is your loving kindness declared in the grave?

Or your faithfulness in Destruction? 

12 Are your wonders made known in the dark?

Or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? 

13 But to you, LORD, I have cried.

In the morning, my prayer comes before you. 

14 LORD, why do you reject my soul?

Why do you hide your face from me? 

15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up.

While I suffer your terrors, I am distracted. 

16 Your fierce wrath has gone over me.

Your terrors have cut me off. 

17 They came around me like water all day long.

They completely engulfed me. 

18 You have put lover and friend far from me,

And my friends into darkness.

PSALMS: 148

1 Praise the LORD!

Praise the LORD from the heavens!

Praise him in the heights! 

2 Praise him, all his angels!

Praise him, all his host!

3 Praise him, sun and moon!

Praise him, all you shining stars! 

4 Praise him, you heavens of heavens,

You waters that are above the heavens. 

5 Let them praise the name of the LORD, ‘

For he commanded, and they were created. 

6 He has also established them forever and ever.

He has made a decree which will not pass away. 

7 Praise the LORD from the eretz,

You great sea creatures, and all depths! 

8 Lightning and hail, snow and clouds;

Stormy wind, fulfilling his word; 

9 Mountains and all hills;

Fruit trees and all cedars; 

10 Wild animals and all cattle;

Small creatures and flying birds; 

11 Kings of the eretz and all peoples;

Princes and all judges of the eretz; 

12 Both young men and maidens;

Old men and children: 

13 Let them praise the name of the LORD,

For his name alone is exalted.

His glory is above the eretz and the heavens. 

14 He has lifted up the horn of his people,

The praise of all his holy ones;

Even of the children of Yisra’el, a people near to him.

Praise the LORD!

PROVERBS: 28

1 The wicked flee when no one pursues;

But the righteous are as bold as a lion. 

2 In rebellion, a land has many rulers,

But order is maintained by a man of understanding and knowledge. 

3 A needy man who oppresses the poor

Is like a driving rain which leaves no crops. 

4 Those who forsake the law praise the wicked;

But those who keep the law contend with them. 

5 Evil men don’t understand justice;

But those who seek the LORD understand it fully. 

6 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity,

Than he who is perverse in his ways, and he is rich. 

7 Whoever keeps the law is a wise son;

But he who is a companion of gluttons shames his father. 

8 He who increases his wealth by excessive interest

Gathers it for one who has pity on the poor. 

9 He who turns away his ear from hearing the law,

Even his prayer is an abomination. 

10 Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way,

He will fall into his own trap;

But the blameless will inherit good. 

11 The rich man is wise in his own eyes;

But the poor who has understanding sees through him. 

12 When the righteous triumph, there is great glory;

But when the wicked rise, men hide themselves. 

13 He who conceals his sins doesn’t prosper,

But whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy. 

14 Blessed is the man who always fears;

But one who hardens his heart falls into trouble. 

15 As a roaring lion or a charging bear,

So is a wicked ruler over helpless people. 

16 The ruler who lacks judgment is a great tyrant.

One who hates ill-gotten gain will have long days.

17 A man who is tormented by life blood will be a fugitive until death;

No one will support him. 

18 Whoever walks blamelessly is kept safe;

But one with perverse ways will fall suddenly. 

19 One who works his land will have an abundance of food;

But one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty. 

20 A faithful man is rich with blessings;

But one who is eager to be rich will not go unpunished.

21 To show partiality is not good;

Yet a man will do wrong for a piece of bread. 

22 A stingy man hurries after riches,

And doesn’t know that poverty waits for him. 

23 One who rebukes a man will afterward find more favor

Than one who flatters with the tongue. 

24 Whoever robs his father or his mother, and says,

“It’s not wrong.”

He is a partner with a destroyer. 

25 One who is greedy stirs up strife;

But one who trusts in the LORD will prosper. 

26 One who trusts in himself is a fool;

But one who walks in wisdom, he is kept safe. 

27 One who gives to the poor has no lack;

But one who closes his eyes will have many curses. 

28 When the wicked rise, men hide themselves;

But when they perish, the righteous thrive.

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 30:1 – 31:26

30:1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: 2 “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you. 3 The days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will bring my people Israel and Judah back from captivity and restore them to the land I gave their ancestors to possess,’ says the LORD.” 4 These are the words the LORD spoke concerning Israel and Judah: 5 “This is what the LORD says: “ ‘Cries of fear are heard— terror, not peace. 6 Ask and see: Can a man bear children? Then why do I see every strong man with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor, every face turned deathly pale? 7 How awful that day will be! No other will be like it. It will be a time of trouble for Jacob, but he will be saved out of it. 8 “ ‘In that day,’ declares the LORD Almighty, ‘I will break the yoke off their necks and will tear off their bonds; no longer will foreigners enslave them. 9 Instead, they will serve the LORD their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them. 10 “ ‘So do not be afraid, Jacob my servant; do not be dismayed, Israel,’ declares the LORD. ‘I will surely save you out of a distant place, your descendants from the land of their exile. Jacob will again have peace and security, and no one will make him afraid. 11 I am with you and will save you,’ declares the LORD. ‘Though I completely destroy all the nations among which I scatter you, I will not completely destroy you. I will discipline you but only in due measure; I will not let you go entirely unpunished.’ 12 “This is what the LORD says: “ ‘Your wound is incurable, your injury beyond healing. 13 There is no one to plead your cause, no remedy for your sore, no healing for you. 14 All your allies have forgotten you; they care nothing for you. I have struck you as an enemy would and punished you as would the cruel, because your guilt is so great and your sins so many. 15 Why do you cry out over your wound, your pain that has no cure? Because of your great guilt and many sins I have done these things to you. 16 “ ‘But all who devour you will be devoured; all your enemies will go into exile. Those who plunder you will be plundered; all who make spoil of you I will despoil. 17 But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD, ‘because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.’ 18 “This is what the LORD says: “ ‘I will restore the fortunes of Jacob’s tents and have compassion on his dwellings; the city will be rebuilt on her ruins, and the palace will stand in its proper place. 19 From them will come songs of thanksgiving and the sound of rejoicing. I will add to their numbers, and they will not be decreased; I will bring them honor, and they will not be disdained. 20Their children will be as in days of old, and their community will be established before me; I will punish all who oppress them. 21 Their leader will be one of their own; their ruler will arise from among them. I will bring him near and he will come close to me— for who is he who will devote himself to be close to me?’ declares the LORD. 22 “‘So you will be my people, and I will be your God.’ ” 23 See, the storm of the LORD will burst out in wrath, a driving wind swirling down on the heads of the wicked. 24 The fierce anger of the LORD will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand this.

31:1 “At that time,” declares the LORD, “I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they will be my people.” 2 This is what the LORD says: “The people who survive the sword will find favor in the wilderness; I will come to give rest to Israel.” 3 The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. 4 I will build you up again, and you, Virgin Israel, will be rebuilt. Again you will take up your timbrels and go out to dance with the joyful. 5 Again you will plant vineyards on the hills of Samaria; the farmers will plant them and enjoy their fruit. 6 There will be a day when watchmen cry out on the hills of Ephraim, ‘Come, let us go up to Zion, to the LORD our God.’ ” 7 This is what the LORD says: “Sing with joy for Jacob; shout for the foremost of the nations. Make your praises heard, and say, ‘LORD, save your people, the remnant of Israel.’ 8 See, I will bring them from the land of the north and gather them from the ends of the earth. Among them will be the blind and the lame, expectant mothers and women in labor; a great throng will return. 9 They will come with weeping; they will pray as I bring them back. I will lead them beside streams of water on a level path where they will not stumble, because I am Israel’s father, and Ephraim is my firstborn son. 10 “Hear the word of the LORD, you nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands: ‘He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over his flock like a shepherd.’ 11 For the LORD will deliver Jacob and redeem them from the hand of those stronger than they. 12 They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the LORD— the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more. 13 Then young women will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow. 14 I will satisfy the priests with abundance, and my people will be filled with my bounty,” declares the LORD. 15 This is what the LORD says: “A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.” 16 This is what the LORD says: “Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your work will be rewarded,” declares the LORD. “They will return from the land of the enemy. 

17  So there is hope for your descendants,” declares the LORD. “Your children will return to their own land. 18 “I have surely heard Ephraim’s moaning: ‘You disciplined me like an unruly calf, and I have been disciplined. Restore me, and I will return, because you are the LORD my God. 19 After I strayed, I repented; after I came to understand, I beat my breast. I was ashamed and humiliated because I bore the disgrace of my youth.’20 Is not Ephraim my dear son, the child in whom I delight? Though I often speak against him, I still remember him. Therefore my heart yearns for him; I have great compassion for him,” declares the LORD. 21 “Set up road signs; put up guideposts. Take note of the highway, the road that you take. Return, Virgin Israel, return to your towns. 22 How long will you wander, unfaithful Daughter Israel? The LORD will create a new thing on earth— the woman will return to the man.” 23 This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “When I bring them back from captivity, the people in the land of Judah and in its towns will once again use these words: ‘The LORD bless you, you prosperous city, you sacred mountain.’24 People will live together in Judah and all its towns—farmers and those who move about with their flocks. 25 I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” 26 At this I awoke and looked around. My sleep had been pleasant to me.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 2:1 – 15

Instructions on Worship

1 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 

2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 

3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 

4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 

6 who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time. 

7 And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—and a true and faithful teacher of the Gentiles. 

8 Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing. 

9 I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, 

10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God. 

11 A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.

12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. 

13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.

14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 

15 But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

PSALMS: 27, 57, 87, 117, 147

PROVERBS: 27

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 28:1 – 29:32

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 1:1 – 20

Psalms 27

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation.

Whom shall I fear?

The LORD is the strength of my life.

Of whom shall I be afraid? 

2 When evil-doers came at me to eat up my flesh,

Even my adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell. 

3 Though a host should encamp against me,

My heart shall not fear.

Though war should rise against me,

Even then I will be confident. 

4 One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after,

That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,

To see the beauty of the LORD,

And to inquire in his temple. 

5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me secretly in his pavilion.

In the covert of his tent will he hide me.

He will lift me up on a rock. 

6 Now shall my head be lifted up above my enemies around me.

I will offer sacrifices of joy in his tent.

I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. 

7 Hear, LORD, when I cry with my voice.

Have mercy also on me, and answer me. 

8 When you said, “Seek my face,”

My heart said to you,

“I will seek your face, LORD.” 

9 Don’t hide your face from me.

Don’t put your servant away in anger.

You have been my help.

Don’t abandon me, neither forsake me,

God of my salvation. 

10 When my father and my mother forsake me,

Then the LORD will take me up. 

11 Teach me your way, LORD.

Lead me in a straight path, because of my enemies.

12 Don’t deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries,

For false witnesses have risen up against me,

Such as breathe out cruelty. 

13 I am still confident of this:

I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. 

14 Wait for the LORD.

Be strong, and let your heart take courage.

Yes, wait for the LORD.

PSALMS: 57

1 Be merciful to me, God, be merciful to me,

For my soul takes refuge in you.

Yes, in the shadow of your wings,

I will take refuge,

Until disaster has passed. 

2 I cry out to El `Elyon,

To God who accomplishes my requests for me. 

3 He will send from heaven, and save me,

He rebukes the one who is pursuing me.

Selah.

God will send out his loving kindness and his truth. 

4 My soul is among lions.

I lie among those who are set on fire,

Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows,

And their tongue a sharp sword. 

5 Be exalted, God, above the heavens!

Let your glory be above all the eretz! 

6 They have prepared a net for my steps.

My soul is bowed down.

They dig a pit before me.

They fall into the midst of it themselves.

Selah. 

7 My heart is steadfast, God, my heart is steadfast.

I will sing, yes,

I will sing praises. 

8 Wake up, my glory!

Wake up, psaltery and harp!

I will wake up the dawn. 

9 I will give thanks to you, Lord, among the peoples.

I will sing praises to you among the nations. 

10 For your great loving kindness reaches to the heavens,

And your truth to the skies. 

11 Be exalted, God, above the heavens.

Let your glory be over all the eretz.

PSALMS: 87

1 His foundation is in the holy mountains. 

2 The LORD loves the gates of Tziyon More than all the dwellings of Ya`akov. 

3 Glorious things are spoken about you, city of God.

Selah. 

4 I will record Rachav and Bavel among those who acknowledge me.

Behold, Peleshet, Tzor, and also Kush:

“This one was born there.” 

5 Yes, of Tziyon it will be said,

“This one and that one was born in her;”

The Elyon himself will establish her. 

6 The LORD will count, when he writes up the peoples,

“This one was born there.”

Selah. 

7 Those who sing as well as those who dance say, “

All my springs are in you.”

PSALMS: 117

1 Praise the LORD, all you nations!

Extol him, all you peoples! 

2 For his loving kindness is great toward us.

The LORD’s faithfulness endures forever.

Praise the LORD!

PSALMS: 147

1 Praise the LORD,

For it is good to sing praises to our God;

For it is pleasant and fitting to praise him. 

2 The LORD builds up Yerushalayim.

He gathers together the outcasts of Yisra’el. 

3 He heals the broken in heart,

And binds up their wounds. 

4 He counts the number of the stars.

He calls them all by their names. 

5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power.

His understanding is infinite. 

6 The LORD upholds the humble.

He brings the wicked down to the ground.

7  Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving.

Sing praises on the harp to our God, 

8 Who covers the sky with clouds,

Who prepares rain for the eretz,

Who makes grass grow on the mountains. 

9 He provides food for the cattle,

And for the young ravens when they call. 

10 He doesn’t delight in the strength of the horse.

He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man. 

11 The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him,

In those who hope in his loving kindness. 

12 Praise the LORD, Yerushalayim!

Praise your God, Tziyon! 

13 For he has strengthened the bars of your gates.

He has blessed your children within you. 

14He makes shalom in your borders.

He fills you with the finest of the wheat. 

15 He sends out his mitzvah on eretz.

His word runs very swiftly. 

16 He gives snow like wool,

And scatters frost like ashes.

17  He hurls down his hail like pebbles.

Who can stand before his cold? 

18 He sends out his word, and melts them.

He causes his wind to blow, and the waters flow. 

19 He shows his word to Ya`akov;

His statutes and his ordinances to Yisra’el. 

20 He has not done this for any nation;

They don’t know his ordinances.

Praise the LORD!

PROVERBS: 27

1 Don’t boast about tomorrow;

For you don’t know what a day may bring forth. 

2 Let another man praise you,

And not your own mouth;

A stranger, and not your own lips. 

3 A stone is heavy, And sand is a burden;

But a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. 

4 Wrath is cruel,

And anger is overwhelming;

But who is able to stand before jealousy? 

5 Better is open rebuke Than hidden love. 

6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend;

Although the kisses of an enemy are profuse.

7 A full soul loathes a honeycomb;

But to a hungry soul, every bitter thing is sweet. 

8 As a bird that wanders from her nest,

So is a man who wanders from his home. 

9 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart;

So does earnest counsel from a man’s friend. 

10 Don’t forsake your friend and your father’s friend.

Don’t go to your brother’s house in the day of your disaster:

Better is a neighbor who is near than a distant brother. 

11 Be wise, my son,

And bring joy to my heart,

Then I can answer my tormentor. 

12 A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge;

But the simple pass on, and suffer for it:

13 Take his garment when he puts up collateral for a stranger;

Hold it for a wayward woman! 

14 He who blesses his neighbor with a loud voice early in the morning,

It will be taken as a curse by him.

15 A continual dropping on a rainy day

And a contentious wife are alike: 

16 Restraining her is like restraining the wind,

Or like grasping oil in his right hand. 

17 Iron sharpens iron;

So a man sharpens his friend’s countenance. 

18 Whoever tends the fig tree shall eat its fruit.

He who looks after his master shall be honored. 

19 As water reflects a face,

So a man’s heart reflects the man. 

20 She’ol and Avaddon are never satisfied;

And a man’s eyes are never satisfied.

21 The crucible is for silver,

And the furnace for gold;

But man is refined by his praise. 

22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with grain,

Yet his foolishness will not be removed from him. 

23 Know well the state of your flocks,

And pay attention to your herds: 

24 For riches are not forever,

Nor does even the crown endure to all generations. 

25 The hay is removed, and the new growth appears,

The grasses of the hills are gathered in. 

26 The lambs are for your clothing,

And the goats are the price of a field. 

27 There will be plenty of goats’ milk for your food,

For your family’s food,

And for the nourishment of your servant girls.

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 28:1 – 29:32

28:1  In the fifth month of that same year, the fourth year, early in the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, the prophet Hananiah son of Azzur, who was from Gibeon, said to me in the house of the LORD in the presence of the priests and all the people: 2 “This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon. 3 Within two years I will bring back to this place all the articles of the LORD’s house that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon removed from here and took to Babylon. 4 I will also bring back to this place Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim king of Judah and all the other exiles from Judah who went to Babylon,’ declares the LORD, ‘for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.’ ” 5 Then the prophet Jeremiah replied to the prophet Hananiah before the priests and all the people who were standing in the house of the LORD. 6 He said, “Amen! May the LORD do so! May the LORD fulfill the words you have prophesied by bringing the articles of the LORD’s house and all the exiles back to this place from Babylon. 7 Nevertheless, listen to what I have to say in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people: 8 From early times the prophets who preceded you and me have prophesied war, disaster and plague against many countries and great kingdoms. 9 But the prophet who prophesies peace will be recognized as one truly sent by the LORD only if his prediction comes true.” 10 Then the prophet Hananiah took the yoke off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah and broke it, 11  and he said before all the people, “This is what the LORD says: ‘In the same way I will break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon off the neck of all the nations within two years.’ ” At this, the prophet Jeremiah went on his way. 12 After the prophet Hananiah had broken the yoke off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah, the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: 13 “Go and tell Hananiah, ‘This is what the LORD says: You have broken a wooden yoke, but in its place you will get a yoke of iron. 14 This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I will put an iron yoke on the necks of all these nations to make them serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and they will serve him. I will even give him control over the wild animals.’ ” 15 Then the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet, “Listen, Hananiah! The LORD has not sent you, yet you have persuaded this nation to trust in lies. 16 Therefore this is what the LORD says: ‘I am about to remove you from the face of the earth. This very year you are going to die, because you have preached rebellion against the LORD.’ ” 17 In the seventh month of that same year, Hananiah the prophet died.

29:1 This is the text of the letter that the prophet Jeremiah sent from Jerusalem to the surviving elders among the exiles and to the priests, the prophets and all the other people Nebuchadnezzar had carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon. 2 (This was after King Jehoiachin and the queen mother, the court officials and the leaders of Judah and Jerusalem, the skilled workers and the artisans had gone into exile from Jerusalem.) 3 He entrusted the letter to Elasah son of Shaphan and to Gemariah son of Hilkiah, whom Zedekiah king of Judah sent to King Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon. It said: 4 This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: 5 “Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. 6 Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. 7 Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” 8 Yes, this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “Do not let the prophets and diviners among you deceive you. Do not listen to the dreams you encourage them to have. 9 They are prophesying lies to you in my name. I have not sent them,” declares the LORD. 10 This is what the LORD says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”15 You may say, “The LORD has raised up prophets for us in Babylon,” 16 but this is what the LORD says about the king who sits on David’s throne and all the people who remain in this city, your fellow citizens who did not go with you into exile— 17 yes, this is what the LORD Almighty says: “I will send the sword, famine and plague against them and I will make them like figs that are so bad they cannot be eaten. 18 I will pursue them with the sword, famine and plague and will make them abhorrent to all the kingdoms of the earth, a curse and an object of horror, of scorn and reproach, among all the nations where I drive them. 19 For they have not listened to my words,” declares the LORD, “words that I sent to them again and again by my servants the prophets. And you exiles have not listened either,” declares the LORD. 20 Therefore, hear the word of the LORD, all you exiles whom I have sent away from Jerusalem to Babylon. 21 This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says about Ahab son of Kolaiah and Zedekiah son of Maaseiah, who are prophesying lies to you in my name: “I will deliver them into the hands of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will put them to death before your very eyes. 22 Because of them, all the exiles from Judah who are in Babylon will use this curse: ‘May the LORD treat you like Zedekiah and Ahab, whom the king of Babylon burned in the fire.’ 23 For they have done outrageous things in Israel; they have committed adultery with their neighbors’ wives, and in my name they have uttered lies—which I did not authorize. I know it and am a witness to it,” declares the LORD. 24 Tell Shemaiah the Nehelamite, 25 “This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: You sent letters in your own name to all the people in Jerusalem, to the priest Zephaniah son of Maaseiah, and to all the other priests. You said to Zephaniah, 26 ‘The LORD has appointed you priest in place of Jehoiada to be in charge of the house of the LORD; you should put any maniac who acts like a prophet into the stocks and neck-irons. 27  So why have you not reprimanded Jeremiah from Anathoth, who poses as a prophet among you? 28 He has sent this message to us in Babylon: It will be a long time. Therefore build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce.’ ” 29 Zephaniah the priest, however, read the letter to Jeremiah the prophet. 30 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: 31 “Send this message to all the exiles: ‘This is what the LORD says about Shemaiah the Nehelamite: Because Shemaiah has prophesied to you, even though I did not send him, and has persuaded you to trust in lies, 32 this is what the LORD says: I will surely punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite and his descendants. He will have no one left among this people, nor will he see the good things I will do for my people, declares the LORD, because he has preached rebellion against me.’ ”

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 1:1 – 20

1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus our hope, 

2 To Timothy my true son in the faith: Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

Timothy Charged to Oppose False Teachers

3 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer 

4 or to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. Such things promote controversial speculations rather than advancing God’s work—which is by faith. 

5 The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 

6 Some have departed from these and have turned to meaningless talk. 

7 They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm. 

8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. 

9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,

10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 

11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.

The Lord’s Grace to Paul

12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. 

13Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief.

14 The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 

15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. 

16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.

17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

The Charge to Timothy Renewed

18 Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, 

19 holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith. 

20 Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme.

JULY 26

PSALMS: 26, 56, 86, 116, 146

PROVERBS: 26

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 26:1 – 27:22

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 THESSALONIANS 3:1 – 18

PSALMS: 26

1 Judge me, LORD, for I have walked in my integrity.

I have trusted also in LORD without wavering. 

2 Examine me, LORD, and prove me.

Try my heart and my mind. 

3 For your loving kindness is before my eyes.

I have walked in your truth. 

4 I have not sat with deceitful men,

Neither will I go in with hypocrites. 

5 I hate the assembly of evil-doers,

And will not sit with the wicked. 

6 I will wash my hands in innocence,

So I will go about your altar, LORD; 

7 That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard,

And tell of all your wondrous works. 

8 LORD, I love the habitation of your house,

The place where your glory dwells. 

9 Don’t gather my soul with sinners,

Nor my life with bloodthirsty men; 

10 In whose hands is wickedness,

Their right hand is full of bribes. 

11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity.

Redeem me, and be merciful to me. 

12 My foot stands in an even place.

In the congregations will I bless the LORD.

PSALMS: 56

1 Be merciful to me, God, for man wants to swallow me up.

All day long, he attacks and oppresses me. 

2 My enemies want to swallow me up all day long,

For they are many who fight proudly against me. 

3 When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. 

4 In God, I praise his word. In God,

I put my trust. I will not be afraid.

What can flesh do to me? 

5 All day long they twist my words.

All their thoughts are against me for evil. 

6 They conspire and lurk,

Watching my steps, they are eager to take my life. 

7 Shall they escape by iniquity? I

n anger cast down the peoples, God. 

8 You number my wanderings.

You put my tears into your bottle.

Aren’t they in your book? 

9 Then shall my enemies turn back in the day that I call.

I know this, that God is for me. 

10 In God, I will praise his word. In the LORD,

I will praise his word. 

11 I have put my trust in God.

I will not be afraid.

What can man do to me? 

12 Your vows are on me, God.

I will give thank offerings to you. 

13 For you have delivered my soul from death,

And prevented my feet from falling,

That I may walk before God in the light of the living.

PSALMS: 86

1 Hear, LORD, and answer me,

For I am poor and needy. 

2 Preserve my soul, for I am godly.

You, my God, save your servant who trusts in you. 

3 Be merciful to me, Lord,

For I call to you all day long.

4 Bring joy to the soul of your servant,

For to you, Lord, do I lift up my soul. 

5 For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive;

Abundant in loving kindness to all those who call on you. 

6 Hear, LORD, my prayer.

Listen to the voice of my petitions. 

7  In the day of my trouble I will call on you,

For you will answer me. 

8 There is no one like you among the gods, Lord,

Nor any deeds like your deeds. 

9 All nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord.

They shall glorify your name. 

10 For you are great, and do wondrous things.

You are God alone. 

11 Teach me your way, LORD.

I will walk in your truth.

Make my heart undivided to fear your name. 

12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with my whole heart.

I will glorify your name forevermore. 

13 For your loving kindness is great toward me.

You have delivered my soul from the lowest She’ol. 

14 God, the proud have risen up against me.

A company of violent men have sought after my soul,

And they don’t hold regard for you before them. 

15 But you, Lord, are a merciful and gracious God,

Slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth. 

16 Turn to me, and have mercy on me!

Give your strength to your servant.

Save the son of your handmaid. 

17  Show me a sign of your goodness,

That those who hate me may see it, and be put to shame,

Because you, LORD, have helped me, and comforted me.

PSALMS: 116

1 I love the LORD, because he listens to my voice,

And my cries for mercy. 

2 Because he has turned his ear to me,

Therefore I will call on him as long as I live. 

3 The cords of death surrounded me,

The pains of She’ol got a hold on me.

I found trouble and sorrow. 

4 Then called I on the name of the LORD:

“The LORD, I beg you, deliver my soul.” 

5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous;

Yes, our God is merciful. 

6 The LORD preserves the simple.

I was brought low, and he saved me. 

7 Return to your rest, my soul,

For the LORD has dealt bountifully with you. 

8 For you have delivered my soul from death,

My eyes from tears,

And my feet from falling. 

9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living. 

10 I believed, therefore I said,

“I was greatly afflicted.” 

11 I said in my haste,

“All men are liars.” 

12 What will I give to the LORD for all his benefits toward me?

13 I will take the cup of salvation,

and call on the name of the LORD. 

14 I will pay my vows to the LORD,

Yes, in the presence of all his people. 

15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his holy ones. 

16 LORD, truly I am your servant.

I am your servant, the son of your handmaid.

You have freed me from my chains. 

17 I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving,

And will call on the name of the LORD. 

18 I will pay my vows to the LORD,

Yes, in the presence of all his people, 

19 In the courts of the LORD’s house,

In the midst of you, Yerushalayim.

Praise the LORD!

PSALMS: 146

1 Praise the LORD!

Praise the LORD, my soul. 

2 While I live, I will praise the LORD.

I will sing praises to my God as long as I exist. 

3 Don’t put your trust in princes,

Each a son of man in whom there is no help. 

4 His spirit departs, and he returns to the eretz.

In that very day, his thoughts perish. 

5 Happy is he who has the God of Ya`akov for his help,

Whose hope is in the LORD, his God: 

6 Who made heaven and eretz,

The sea, and all that is in them;

Who keeps truth forever; 

7 Who executes justice for the oppressed;

Who gives food to the hungry.

The LORD frees the prisoners. 

8 The LORD opens the eyes of the blind.

The LORD raises up those who are bowed down.

The LORD loves the righteous. 

9 The LORD preserves the sojourners.

He upholds the fatherless and widow,

But the way of the wicked he turns upside down. 

10 The LORD will reign forever;

Your God, O Tziyon, to all generations. Praise the LORD!

PROVERBS: 26

1 Like snow in summer, and as rain in harvest,

So honor is not fitting for a fool. 

2 Like a fluttering sparrow,

Like a darting swallow,

So the undeserved curse doesn’t come to rest. 

3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey,

And a rod for the back of fools! 

4 Don’t answer a fool according to his folly,

Lest you also be like him.

5 Answer a fool according to his folly,

Lest he be wise in his own eyes. 

6 One who sends a message by the hand of a fool

Is cutting off feet and drinking violence. 

7 Like the legs of the lame that hang loose:

So is a parable in the mouth of fools. 

8 As one who binds a stone in a sling,

So is he who gives honor to a fool. 

9 Like a thornbush that goes into the hand of a drunkard,

So is a parable in the mouth of fools. 

10 As an archer who wounds all,

So is he who hires a fool

Or he who hires those who pass by. 

11 As a dog that returns to his vomit,

So is a fool who repeats his folly. 

12 Do you see a man wise in his own eyes?

There is more hope for a fool than for him. 

13 The sluggard says,

“There is a lion in the road!

A fierce lion roams the streets!” 

14 As the door turns on its hinges,

So does the sluggard on his bed. 

15 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish.

He is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth. 

16 The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes

Than seven men who answer with discretion. 

17 Like one who seizes a dog’s ears

Is one who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own. 

18 Like a madman who shoots firebrands, arrows, and death, 

19 Is the man who deceives his neighbor and says,

“Am I not joking?” 

20 For lack of wood the fire goes out;

Where there is no gossip, a quarrel dies down. 

21 As coals are to hot embers, And wood to fire,

So is a contentious man to kindle strife.

22 The words of a whisperer are as dainty morsels,

They go down into the innermost parts. 

23 Like silver dross on an earthen vessel

Are the lips of a fervent one with an evil heart. 

24 A malicious man disguises himself with his lips,

But he harbors evil in his heart. 

25 When his speech is charming, don’t believe him;

For there are seven abominations in his heart: 

26 His malice may be concealed by deception,

But his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly. 

27 Whoever digs a pit shall fall into it. ‘

Whoever rolls a stone, it will come back on him. 

28 A lying tongue hates those it hurts;

And a flattering mouth works ruin.

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 26:1 – 27:22

26:1 Early in the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, this word came from the LORD: 2 “This is what the LORD says: Stand in the courtyard of the LORD’s house and speak to all the people of the towns of Judah who come to worship in the house of the LORD. Tell them everything I command you; do not omit a word. 3 Perhaps they will listen and each will turn from their evil ways. Then I will relent and not inflict on them the disaster I was planning because of the evil they have done. 4 Say to them, ‘This is what the LORD says: If you do not listen to me and follow my law, which I have set before you, 5 and if you do not listen to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I have sent to you again and again (though you have not listened), 6 then I will make this house like Shiloh and this city a curse among all the nations of the earth.’ ” 7  The priests, the prophets and all the people heard Jeremiah speak these words in the house of the LORD. 8 But as soon as Jeremiah finished telling all the people everything the LORD had commanded him to say, the priests, the prophets and all the people seized him and said, “You must die! 9 Why do you prophesy in the LORD’s name that this house will be like Shiloh and this city will be desolate and deserted?” And all the people crowded around Jeremiah in the house of the LORD. 10 When the officials of Judah heard about these things, they went up from the royal palace to the house of the LORD and took their places at the entrance of the New Gate of the LORD’s house. 11 Then the priests and the prophets said to the officials and all the people, “This man should be sentenced to death because he has prophesied against this city. You have heard it with your own ears!” 12 Then Jeremiah said to all the officials and all the people: “The LORD sent me to prophesy against this house and this city all the things you have heard. 13 Now reform your ways and your actions and obey the LORD your God. Then the LORD will relent and not bring the disaster he has pronounced against you. 14 As for me, I am in your hands; do with me whatever you think is good and right. 15 Be assured, however, that if you put me to death, you will bring the guilt of innocent blood on yourselves and on this city and on those who live in it, for in truth the LORD has sent me to you to speak all these words in your hearing.” 16 Then the officials and all the people said to the priests and the prophets, “This man should not be sentenced to death! He has spoken to us in the name of the LORD our God.” 17 Some of the elders of the land stepped forward and said to the entire assembly of people, 18 “Micah of Moresheth prophesied in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah. He told all the people of Judah, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty says: “ ‘Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble, the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets.’ 19 “Did Hezekiah king of Judah or anyone else in Judah put him to death? Did not Hezekiah fear the LORD and seek his favor? And did not the LORD relent, so that he did not bring the disaster he pronounced against them? We are about to bring a terrible disaster on ourselves!” 20 (Now Uriah son of Shemaiah from Kiriath Jearim was another man who prophesied in the name of the LORD; he prophesied the same things against this city and this land as Jeremiah did. 21 When King Jehoiakim and all his officers and officials heard his words, the king was determined to put him to death. But Uriah heard of it and fled in fear to Egypt. 22 King Jehoiakim, however, sent Elnathan son of Akbor to Egypt, along with some other men. 23 They brought Uriah out of Egypt and took him to King Jehoiakim, who had him struck down with a sword and his body thrown into the burial place of the common people.) 24 Furthermore, Ahikam son of Shaphan supported Jeremiah, and so he was not handed over to the people to be put to death.

27:1 Early in the reign of Zedekiah son of Josiah king of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD: 2 This is what the LORD said to me: “Make a yoke out of straps and crossbars and put it on your neck. 3 Then send word to the kings of Edom, Moab, Ammon, Tyre and Sidon through the envoys who have come to Jerusalem to Zedekiah king of Judah. 4 Give them a message for their masters and say, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “Tell this to your masters: 5 With my great power and outstretched arm I made the earth and its people and the animals that are on it, and I give it to anyone I please. 6 Now I will give all your countries into the hands of my servant Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; I will make even the wild animals subject to him. 7 All nations will serve him and his son and his grandson until the time for his land comes; then many nations and great kings will subjugate him. 8 “ ‘ “If, however, any nation or kingdom will not serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon or bow its neck under his yoke, I will punish that nation with the sword, famine and plague, declares the LORD, until I destroy it by his hand. 9 So do not listen to your prophets, your diviners, your interpreters of dreams, your mediums or your sorcerers who tell you, ‘You will not serve the king of Babylon.’ 10 They prophesy lies to you that will only serve to remove you far from your lands; I will banish you and you will perish. 11 But if any nation will bow its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon and serve him, I will let that nation remain in its own land to till it and to live there, declares the LORD.” ’ ” 12 I gave the same message to Zedekiah king of Judah. I said, “Bow your neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon; serve him and his people, and you will live. 13 Why will you and your people die by the sword, famine and plague with which the LORD has threatened any nation that will not serve the king of Babylon? 14 Do not listen to the words of the prophets who say to you, ‘You will not serve the king of Babylon,’ for they are prophesying lies to you. 15 ‘I have not sent them,’ declares the LORD. ‘They are prophesying lies in my name. Therefore, I will banish you and you will perish, both you and the prophets who prophesy to you.’ ” 16 Then I said to the priests and all these people, “This is what the LORD says: Do not listen to the prophets who say, ‘Very soon now the articles from the LORD’s house will be brought back from Babylon.’ They are prophesying lies to you. 17  Do not listen to them. Serve the king of Babylon, and you will live. Why should this city become a ruin? 18 If they are prophets and have the word of the LORD, let them plead with the LORD Almighty that the articles remaining in the house of the LORD and in the palace of the king of Judah and in Jerusalem not be taken to Babylon. 19 For this is what the LORD Almighty says about the pillars, the bronze Sea, the movable stands and the other articles that are left in this city, 20 which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon did not take away when he carried Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim king of Judah into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon, along with all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem— 21 yes, this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says about the things that are left in the house of the LORD and in the palace of the king of Judah and in Jerusalem: 22 ‘They will be taken to Babylon and there they will remain until the day I come for them,’ declares the LORD. ‘Then I will bring them back and restore them to this place.’ ”

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 THESSALONIANS 3:1 – 18

Request for Prayer

3:1 As for other matters, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you. 

2 And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith. 

3 But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one. 

4 We have confidence in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we command. 

5 May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.

Warning Against Idleness

6 In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us. 

7  For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, 

8 nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. 

9 We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to offer ourselves as a model for you to imitate. 

10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” 

11 We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies.

12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the food they eat. 

13 And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good. 

14 Take special note of anyone who does not obey our instruction in this letter. Do not associate with them, in order that they may feel ashamed. 

15 Yet do not regard them as an enemy, but warn them as you would a fellow believer.

Final Greetings

16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. 

17 I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand, which is the distinguishing mark in all my letters. This is how I write. 

18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

PROVERBS: 25

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 23:28 – 25:38

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 THESSALONIANS 2:1 – 17

PSALMS: 25

1 To you, LORD, do I lift up my soul. 

2 My God, in you have I trusted,

Let me not be put to shame.

Don’t let my enemies triumph over me. 

3 Yes, no one who waits for you shall be put to shame.

They shall be put to shame who deal treacherously without cause. 

4 Show me your ways, LORD.

Teach me your paths. 

5 Guide me in your truth, and teach me,

For you are the God of my salvation,

I wait for you all day long. 

6 LORD, remember your tender mercies and your loving kindness,

For they are from old times. 

7 Don’t remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions.

Remember me according to your loving kindness,

For your goodness’ sake, LORD. 

8 Good and upright is the LORD,

Therefore he will instruct sinners in the way.

9 He will guide the humble in justice.

He will teach the humble his way. 

10 All the paths of the LORD are loving kindness and truth

To such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. 

11 For your name’s sake, LORD,

Pardon my iniquity, for it is great. 

12 What man is he who fears the LORD?

He shall instruct him in the way that he shall choose. 

13 His soul shall dwell at ease.

His seed shall inherit the land. 

14 The friendship of the LORD is with those who fear him.

He will show them his covenant. 

15 My eyes are ever on the LORD,

For he will pluck my feet out of the net. 

16 Turn to me, and have mercy on me,

For I am desolate and afflicted. 

17  The troubles of my heart are enlarged.

Oh bring me out of my distresses. 

18 Consider my affliction and my travail.

Forgive all my sins. 

19 Consider my enemies, for they are many.

They hate me with cruel hatred. 

20 Oh keep my soul, and deliver me.

Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. 

21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,

For I wait for you. 

22 Redeem Yisra’el, God,

Out all of his troubles.

PSALMS: 55

1 Listen to my prayer, God.

Don’t hide yourself from my supplication. 

2 Attend to me, and answer me.

I am restless in my complaint, and moan, 

3 Because of the voice of the enemy,

Because of the oppression of the wicked.

For they bring suffering on me.

In anger they hold a grudge against me. 

4 My heart is severely pained within me.

The terrors of death have fallen on me. 

5 Fearfulness and trembling have come on me.

Horror has overwhelmed me. 

6 I said, “Oh that I had wings like a dove!

Then I would fly away, and be at rest. 

7 Behold, then I would wander far off.

I would lodge in the wilderness.”

Selah. 

8 “I would hurry to a shelter from the stormy wind and tempest.” 

9 Confuse them, Lord, and confound their language,

For I have seen violence and strife in the city. 

10 Day and night they prowl around on its walls.

Malice and abuse are also within her. 

11 Destructive forces are within her.

Threats and lies don’t depart from her streets. 

12 For it was not an enemy who insulted me,

Then I could have endured it.

Neither was it he who hated me who raised himself up against me,

Then I would have hid myself from him. 

13 But it was you, a man like me,

My companion, and my familiar friend. 

14 We took sweet fellowship together.

We walked in God’s house with the throng. 

15 Let death come suddenly on them.

Let them go down alive into She’ol.

For wickedness is in their dwelling, in the midst of them. 

16 As for me, I will call on God.

The LORD will save me. 

17 Evening, morning, and at noon, I will cry out in distress.

He will hear my voice. 

18 He has redeemed my soul in shalom from the battle that was against me,

Although there are many who oppose me. 

19 God, who is enthroned forever,

Will hear, and answer them.

Selah.

They never change,

Who don’t fear God. 

20 He raises his hands against his friends.

He has violated his covenant. 

21 His mouth was smooth as butter,

But his heart was war.

His words were softer than oil,

Yet they were drawn swords. 

22 Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you.

He will never allow the righteous to be moved. 

23 But you, God, will bring them down into the pit of destruction.

Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out half their days,

But I will trust in you.

PSALMS: 85

1 LORD, you have been favorable to your land.

You have restored the fortunes of Ya`akov. 

2 You have forgiven the iniquity of your people.

You have covered all their sin.

Selah. 

3 You have taken away all your wrath.

You have turned from the fierceness of your anger. 

4 Turn us, God of our salvation,

And cause your indignation toward us to cease. 

5 Will you be angry with us forever?

Will you draw out your anger to all generations? 

6 Won’t you revive us again,

That your people may rejoice in you? 

7 Show us your loving kindness, LORD.

Grant us your salvation. 

8 I will hear what God, the LORD, will speak,

For he will speak shalom to his people, his holy ones;

But let them not turn again to folly. 

9 Surely his salvation is near those who fear him,

That glory may dwell in our land.

10 Mercy and truth meet together.

Righteousness and shalom have kissed each other. 

11 Truth springs out of the eretz.

Righteousness has looked down from heaven. 

12 Yes, the LORD will give that which is good.

Our land will yield its increase. 

13 Righteousness goes before him,

And prepares the way for his steps.

PSALMS: 115

1 Not to us, LORD, not to us,

But to your name give glory,

For your loving kindness, and for your truth’s sake. 

2 Why should the nations say,

“Where is their God, now?” 

3 But our God is in the heavens.

He does whatever he pleases. 

4 Their idols are silver and gold,

The work of men’s hands. 

5 They have mouths, but they don’t speak;

They have eyes, but they don’t see; 

6 They have ears, but they don’t hear;

They have noses, but they don’t smell; 

7  They have hands, but they don’t feel;

They have feet, but they don’t walk;

Neither do they speak through their throat. 

8 Those who make them will be like them;

Yes, everyone who trusts in them. 

9 Yisra’el, trust in the LORD!

He is their help and their shield. 

10 House of Aharon, trust in the LORD!

He is their help and their shield. 

11 You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD!

He is their help and their shield. 

12 The LORD remembers us.

He will bless us. 4

He will bless the house of Yisra’el.

He will bless the house of Aharon. 

13 He will bless those who fear the LORD,

Both small and great. 

14 May the LORD increase you more and more,

You and your children. 

15 Blessed are you by the LORD,

Who made heaven and eretz. 

16 The heavens are the heavens of the LORD;

But the eretz has he given to the children of men. 

17  The dead don’t praise the LORD,

Neither any who go down into silence; 

18 But we will bless the LORD,

From this time forth and forevermore.

Praise the LORD!

PSALMS: 145

1 I will exalt you, my God, the King.

I will praise your name forever and ever. 

2 Every day I will praise you.

I will extol your name forever and ever. 

3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised!

His greatness is unsearchable. 

4 One generation will commend your works to another,

And will declare your mighty acts. 

5 Of the glorious majesty of your honor,

Of your wondrous works, I will meditate. 

6 Men will speak of the might of your awesome acts.

I will declare your greatness. 

7 They will utter the memory of your great goodness,

And will sing of your righteousness. 

8 The LORD is gracious, merciful,

Slow to anger, and of great loving kindness. 

9 The LORD is good to all.

His tender mercies are over all his works.

10 All your works will give thanks to you, LORD.

Your holy ones will extol you. 

11 They will speak of the glory of your kingdom,

And talk about your power; 

12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts,

The glory of the majesty of his kingdom. 

13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.

Your dominion endures throughout all generations. 

14 The LORD upholds all who fall,

And raises up all those who are bowed down. 

15 The eyes of all wait for you.

You give them their food in due season. 

16 You open your hand,

And satisfy the desire of every living thing. 

17  The LORD is righteous in all his ways,

And gracious in all his works. 

18 The LORD is near to all those who call on him,

To all who call on him in truth. 

19 He will fulfill the desire of those who fear him.

He also will hear their cry, and will save them. 

20 The LORD preserves all those who love him,

But all the wicked he will destroy. 

21 My mouth will speak the praise of the LORD.

Let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.

PROVERBS: 25

1 These also are proverbs of Shlomo,

which the men of Hizkiyahu king of Yehudah copied out. 

2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing,

But the glory of kings is to search out a matter. 

3 As the heavens for height, and the eretz for depth,

So the hearts of kings are unsearchable. 

4 Take away the dross from the silver,

And material comes out for the refiner; 

5 Take away the wicked from the king’s presence,

And his throne will be established in righteousness. 

6 Don’t exalt yourself in the presence of the king,

Or claim a place among great men; 

7 For it is better that it be said to you, “Come up here,

” Than that you should be put lower in the presence of the prince,

Whom your eyes have seen. 

8 Don’t be hasty in bringing charges to court.

What will you do in the end when your neighbor shames you? 

9 Debate your case with your neighbor,

And don’t betray the confidence of another; 

10 Lest one who hears it put you to shame,

And your bad reputation never depart. 

11 A word fitly spoken Is like apples of gold in settings of silver. 

12 As an ear-ring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold,

So is a wise reprover to an obedient ear. 

13 As the cold of snow in the time of harvest,

So is a faithful messenger to those who send him;

For he refreshes the soul of his masters. 

14 As clouds and wind without rain,

So is he who boasts of gifts deceptively. 

15 By patience a ruler is persuaded.

A soft tongue breaks the bone. 

16 Have you found honey?

Eat as much as is sufficient for you,

Lest you eat too much, and vomit it. 

17 Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor’s house,

Lest he be weary of you, and hate you. 

18 A man who gives false testimony against his neighbor

Is like a club, a sword, or a sharp arrow. 

19 Confidence in someone unfaithful in time of trouble

Is like a bad tooth, or a lame foot. 

20 As one who takes away a garment in cold weather,

Or vinegar on soda, So is one who sings songs to a heavy heart. 

21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;

If he is thirsty, give him water to drink: 

22 For you will heap coals of fire on his head,

And the LORD will reward you. 

23 The north wind brings forth rain:

So a backbiting tongue brings an angry face. 

24 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop,

Than to share a house with a contentious woman. 

25 Like cold water to a thirsty soul,

So is good news from a far country. 

26 Like a muddied spring, and a polluted well,

So is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked. 

27 It is not good to eat much honey;

Nor is it honorable to seek ones own honor. 

28 Like a city that is broken down and without walls

Is a man whose spirit is without restraint.

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 23:28 – 25:38

23:28 Let the prophet who has a dream recount the dream, but let the one who has my word speak it faithfully. For what has straw to do with grain?” declares the LORD. 29 “Is not my word like fire,” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces? 30 “Therefore,” declares the LORD, “I am against the prophets who steal from one another words supposedly from me. 31 Yes,” declares the LORD, “I am against the prophets who wag their own tongues and yet declare, ‘The LORD declares.’ 32 Indeed, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,” declares the LORD. “They tell them and lead my people astray with their reckless lies, yet I did not send or appoint them. They do not benefit these people in the least,” declares the LORD. 33 “When these people, or a prophet or a priest, ask you, ‘What is the message from the LORD?’ say to them, ‘What message? I will forsake you, declares the LORD.’ 34 If a prophet or a priest or anyone else claims, ‘This is a message from the LORD,’ I will punish them and their household. 35 This is what each of you keeps saying to your friends and other Israelites: ‘What is the LORD’s answer?’ or ‘What has the LORD spoken?’ 36 But you must not mention ‘a message from the LORD’ again, because each one’s word becomes their own message. So you distort the words of the living God, the LORD Almighty, our God. 

37  This is what you keep saying to a prophet: ‘What is the LORD’s answer to you?’ or ‘What has the LORD spoken?’ 38 Although you claim, ‘This is a message from the LORD,’ this is what the LORD says: You used the words, ‘This is a message from the LORD,’ even though I told you that you must not claim, ‘This is a message from the LORD.’ 39 Therefore, I will surely forget you and cast you out of my presence along with the city I gave to you and your ancestors. 40 I will bring on you everlasting disgrace—everlasting shame that will not be forgotten.”

24:1 After Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim king of Judah and the officials, the skilled workers and the artisans of Judah were carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, the LORD showed me two baskets of figs placed in front of the temple of the LORD. 2 One basket had very good figs, like those that ripen early; the other basket had very bad figs, so bad they could not be eaten. 3 Then the LORD asked me, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” “Figs,” I answered. “The good ones are very good, but the bad ones are so bad they cannot be eaten.” 4 Then the word of the LORD came to me: 5 “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘Like these good figs, I regard as good the exiles from Judah, whom I sent away from this place to the land of the Babylonians. 6 My eyes will watch over them for their good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up and not tear them down; I will plant them and not uproot them. 7 I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart. 8 “‘But like the bad figs, which are so bad they cannot be eaten,’ says the LORD, ‘so will I deal with Zedekiah king of Judah, his officials and the survivors from Jerusalem, whether they remain in this land or live in Egypt. 9 I will make them abhorrent and an offense to all the kingdoms of the earth, a reproach and a byword, a curse and an object of ridicule, wherever I banish them. 10 I will send the sword, famine and plague against them until they are destroyed from the land I gave to them and their ancestors.’ ”

25:1 The word came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, which was the first year of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. 2 So Jeremiah the prophet said to all the people of Judah and to all those living in Jerusalem: 3 For twenty-three years—from the thirteenth year of Josiah son of Amon king of Judah until this very day—the word of the LORD has come to me and I have spoken to you again and again, but you have not listened. 4 And though the LORD has sent all his servants the prophets to you again and again, you have not listened or paid any attention. 5 They said, “Turn now, each of you, from your evil ways and your evil practices, and you can stay in the land the LORD gave to you and your ancestors for ever and ever. 6 Do not follow other gods to serve and worship them; do not arouse my anger with what your hands have made. Then I will not harm you.” 7 “But you did not listen to me,” declares the LORD, “and you have aroused my anger with what your hands have made, and you have brought harm to yourselves.” 8 Therefore the LORD Almighty says this: “Because you have not listened to my words, 9 I will summon all the peoples of the north and my servant Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon,” declares the LORD, “and I will bring them against this land and its inhabitants and against all the surrounding nations. I will completely destroy them and make them an object of horror and scorn, and an everlasting ruin. 10 I will banish from them the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of bride and bridegroom, the sound of millstones and the light of the lamp. 11 This whole country will become a desolate wasteland, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon seventy years. 12 “But when the seventy years are fulfilled, I will punish the king of Babylon and his nation, the land of the Babylonians, for their guilt,” declares the LORD, “and will make it desolate forever. 13 I will bring on that land all the things I have spoken against it, all that are written in this book and prophesied by Jeremiah against all the nations. 14 They themselves will be enslaved by many nations and great kings; I will repay them according to their deeds and the work of their hands.” 15 This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, said to me: “Take from my hand this cup filled with the wine of my wrath and make all the nations to whom I send you drink it. 16 When they drink it, they will stagger and go mad because of the sword I will send among them.” 17 So I took the cup from the LORD’s hand and made all the nations to whom he sent me drink it: 18 Jerusalem and the towns of Judah, its kings and officials, to make them a ruin and an object of horror and scorn, a curse —as they are today; 19 Pharaoh king of Egypt, his attendants, his officials and all his people, 20 and all the foreign people there; all the kings of Uz; all the kings of the Philistines (those of Ashkelon, Gaza, Ekron, and the people left at Ashdod); 21 Edom, Moab and Ammon; 22 all the kings of Tyre and Sidon; the kings of the coastlands across the sea; 23 Dedan, Tema, Buz and all who are in distant places ; 24 all the kings of Arabia and all the kings of the foreign people who live in the wilderness; 25 all the kings of Zimri, Elam and Media; 26 and all the kings of the north, near and far, one after the other—all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. And after all of them, the king of Sheshak will drink it too. 27  “Then tell them, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Drink, get drunk and vomit, and fall to rise no more because of the sword I will send among you.’ 28 But if they refuse to take the cup from your hand and drink, tell them, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty says: You must drink it! 29 See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears my Name, and will you indeed go unpunished? You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword on all who live on the earth, declares the LORD Almighty.’ 30 “Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them: “ ‘The LORD will roar from on high; he will thunder from his holy dwelling and roar mightily against his land. He will shout like those who tread the grapes, shout against all who live on the earth. 31 The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth, for the LORD will bring charges against the nations; he will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword,’ ” declares the LORD. 32 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Look! Disaster is spreading from nation to nation; a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the earth.”33 At that time those slain by the LORD will be everywhere—from one end of the earth to the other. They will not be mourned or gathered up or buried, but will be like dung lying on the ground. 34 Weep and wail, you shepherds; roll in the dust, you leaders of the flock. For your time to be slaughtered has come; you will fall like the best of the rams. 35 The shepherds will have nowhere to flee, the leaders of the flock no place to escape. 36 Hear the cry of the shepherds, the wailing of the leaders of the flock, for the LORD is destroying their pasture. 37 The peaceful meadows will be laid waste because of the fierce anger of the LORD. 38 Like a lion he will leave his lair, and their land will become desolate because of the sword of the oppressor and because of the LORD’s fierce anger.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 THESSALONIANS 2:1 – 17

The Man of Lawlessness

2:1 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, 

2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. 

3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 

4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God. 

5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 

6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 

7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 

8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 

9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie,

10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 

11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 

12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

Stand Firm

13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 

14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

15 So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. 

16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 

17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

PSALMS: 23, 53, 83, 113, 143

PROVERBS: 23

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 19:1 – 21:14

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 THESSALONIANS 5:4 – 28

PSALMS: 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd:

I shall lack nothing. 

2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures.

He leads me beside still waters. 

3 He restores my soul.

He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 

4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil, for you are with me.

Your rod and your staff, they comfort me 

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

You have anointed my head with oil.

My cup runs over. 

6 Surely goodness and loving kindness shall follow me all the days of my life,

And I shall dwell in the LORD’s house forever.

PSALMS: 53

1 The fool has said in his heart,

“There is no God.”

They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity.

There is no one who does good. 

2 God looks down from heaven on the children of men,

To see if there are any who understood, Who seek after God. 

3 Every one of them has gone back.

They have become filthy together.

There is no one who does good, no, not one. 

4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge,

Who eat up my people as they eat bread,

And don’t call on God? 

5 There they were in great fear, where no fear was,

For God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you.

You have put them to shame,

Because God has rejected them.

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

When God brings back the captivity of his people,

Then shall Ya`akov rejoice.

Yisra’el shall be glad.

PSALMS: 83

1 God, don’t keep silent.

Don’t keep silent, and don’t be still, God. 

2 For, behold, your enemies are stirred up.

Those who hate you have lifted up their heads. 

3 They conspire with cunning against your people.

They plot against your cherished ones. 

4 “Come,” they say, “and let us destroy them as a nation,

That the name of Yisra’el may be remembered no more.” 

5 For they have conspired together with one mind.

They form an alliance against you. 

6 The tents of Edom and the Yishme`elim;

Mo’av, and the Hagrim; 

7 Geval, `Ammon, and `Amalek;

Peleshet with the inhabitants of Tzor; 

8 Ashshur also is joined with them.

They have helped the children of Lot.

Selah. 

9 Do to them as you did to Midyan,

As to Sisera, as to Yavin, at the river Kishon; 

10 Who perished at `En-Dor,

Who became as dung for the eretz. 

11 Make their nobles like `Orev and Ze’ev;

Yes, all their princes like Zevach and Tzalmunnah; 

12 Who said, “Let us take possession

Of God’s pasturelands.” 

13 My God, make them like tumbleweed;

Like chaff before the wind. 

14 As the fire that burns the forest,

As the flame that sets the mountains on fire,

15 So pursue them with your tempest,

Terrify them with your storm.

16 Fill their faces with confusion,

That they may seek your name, LORD. 

17 Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever.

Yes, let them be confounded and perish; 

18 That they may know that you alone, whose name is the LORD,

Are Ha`Elyon over all the eretz.

PSALMS: 113

1 Praise the LORD!

Praise, you servants of the LORD,

Praise the name of the LORD. 

2 Blessed be the name of the LORD,

From this time forth and forevermore. 

3 From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same,

The LORD’s name is to be praised. 

4 The LORD is high above all nations,

His glory above the heavens. 

5 Who is like the LORD, our God,

Who has his seat on high, 

6 Who stoops down to see in heaven and in the eretz? 

7 He raises up the poor out of the dust.

Lifts up the needy from the ash heap; 

8 That he may set him with princes,

Even with the princes of his people. 

9 He settles the barren woman in her home,

As a joyful mother of children.

Praise the LORD!

PSALMS: 143

1 Hear my prayer, LORD.

Listen to my petitions.

In your faithfulness and righteousness, relieve me. 

2 Don’t enter into judgment with your servant,

For in your sight no man living is righteous. 

3 For the enemy pursues my soul.

He has struck my life down to the ground.

He has made me live in dark places,

as those who have been long dead. 

4 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me.

My heart within me is desolate. 

5 I remember the days of old.

I meditate on all your doings.

I contemplate the work of your hands. 

6 I spread forth my hands to you.

My soul thirsts for you, like a parched land.

Selah. 

7 Hurry to answer me, LORD.

My spirit fails.

Don’t hide your face from me,

So that I don’t become like those who go down into the pit. 

8 Cause me to hear your loving kindness in the morning,

For I trust in you.

Cause me to know the way in which I should walk,

For I lift up my soul to you. 

9 Deliver me, LORD, from my enemies.

I flee to you to hide me. 

10 Teach me to do your will,

For you are my God.

Your Spirit is good.

Lead me in the land of uprightness. 

11 Revive me, LORD, for your name’s sake.

In your righteousness, bring my soul out of trouble. 

12 In your loving kindness, cut off my enemies,

And destroy all those who afflict my soul,

For I am your servant.

PROVERBS: 23

1 When you sit to eat with a ruler,

Consider diligently what is before you; 

2 Put a knife to your throat,

If you are a man given to appetite.

3 Don’t be desirous of his dainties,

Seeing they are deceitful food.

4 Don’t weary yourself to be rich.

In your wisdom, show restraint 

5 Why do you set your eyes on that which is not?

For it certainly sprouts wings like an eagle and flies in the sky. 

6 Don’t eat the food of him who has a stingy eye,

And don’t crave his delicacies: 

7 For as he thinks about the cost, so he is.

“Eat and drink!” he says to you,

But his heart is not with you. 

8 The morsel which you have eaten you shall vomit up,

And lose your good words. 

9 Don’t speak in the ears of a fool,

For he will despise the wisdom of your words. 

10 Don’t move the ancient boundary stone.

Don’t encroach on the fields of the fatherless: 

11 For their Defender is strong.

He will plead their case against you. 

12 Apply your heart to instruction,

And your ears to the words of knowledge. 

13 Don’t withhold correction from a child.

If you punish him with the rod, he will not die. 

14 Punish him with the rod,

And save his soul from She’ol 

15 My son, if your heart is wise,

Then my heart will be glad, even mine: 

16 Yes, my heart will rejoice,

When your lips speak what is right. 

17 Don’t let your heart envy sinners;

But rather fear the LORD all the day long. 

18 Indeed surely there is a future hope,

And your hope will not be cut off. 

19 Listen, my son, and be wise,

And keep your heart on the right path 

20 Don’t be among ones drinking too much wine,

Or those who gorge themselves on meat: 

21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall become poor;

And drowsiness clothes them in rags 

22 Listen to your father who gave you life,

And don’t despise your mother when she is old. 

23 Buy the truth, and don’t sell it:

Get wisdom, discipline, and understanding. 

24 The father of the righteous has great joy.

Whoever fathers a wise child delights in him. 

25 Let your father and your mother be glad!

Let her who bore you rejoice! 

26 My son, give me your heart;

And let your eyes keep in my ways. 

27 For a prostitute is a deep pit;

And a wayward wife is a narrow well. 

28 Yes, she lies in wait like a robber,

And increases the unfaithful among men. 

29 Who has woe?

Who has sorrow?

Who has strife?

Who has complaints?

Who has needless bruises?

Who has bloodshot eyes?

30 Those who stay long at the wine;

Those who go to seek out mixed wine. 

31 Don’t look at the wine when it is red,

When it sparkles in the cup,

When it goes down smoothly: 

32 At the last it bites like a snake,

And poisons like a viper. 

33 Your eyes will see strange things,

And your mind will imagine confusing things. 

34 Yes, you will be as he who lies down in the midst of the sea,

Or as he who lies on top of the rigging: 

35 “They hit me, and I was not hurt;

They beat me, and I don’t feel it!

When will I wake up?

I can do it again.

I can find another.”

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 19:1 – 21:14

19:1 This is what the LORD says: “Go and buy a clay jar from a potter. Take along some of the elders of the people and of the priests 2 and go out to the Valley of Ben Hinnom, near the entrance of the Potsherd Gate. There proclaim the words I tell you, 3 and say, ‘Hear the word of the LORD, you kings of Judah and people of Jerusalem. This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Listen! I am going to bring a disaster on this place that will make the ears of everyone who hears of it tingle. 4 For they have forsaken me and made this a place of foreign gods; they have burned incense in it to gods that neither they nor their ancestors nor the kings of Judah ever knew, and they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent. 5 They have built the high places of Baal to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal—something I did not command or mention, nor did it enter my mind. 6 So beware, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when people will no longer call this place Topheth or the Valley of Ben Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter. 7 “ ‘In this place I will ruin the plans of Judah and Jerusalem. I will make them fall by the sword before their enemies, at the hands of those who want to kill them, and I will give their carcasses as food to the birds and the wild animals. 8 I will devastate this city and make it an object of horror and scorn; all who pass by will be appalled and will scoff because of all its wounds. 9 I will make them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters, and they will eat one another’s flesh because their enemies will press the siege so hard against them to destroy them.’ 10“Then break the jar while those who go with you are watching, 11 and say to them, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty says: I will smash this nation and this city just as this potter’s jar is smashed and cannot be repaired. They will bury the dead in Topheth until there is no more room. 12 This is what I will do to this place and to those who live here, declares the LORD. I will make this city like Topheth. 13 The houses in Jerusalem and those of the kings of Judah will be defiled like this place, Topheth—all the houses where they burned incense on the roofs to all the starry hosts and poured out drink offerings to other gods.’ ” 14 Jeremiah then returned from Topheth, where the LORD had sent him to prophesy, and stood in the court of the LORD’s temple and said to all the people, 15 “This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘Listen! I am going to bring on this city and all the villages around it every disaster I pronounced against them, because they were stiff-necked and would not listen to my words.’ ”

20:1 When the priest Pashhur son of Immer, the official in charge of the temple of the LORD, heard Jeremiah prophesying these things, 2 he had Jeremiah the prophet beaten and put in the stocks at the Upper Gate of Benjamin at the LORD’s temple. 3 The next day, when Pashhur released him from the stocks, Jeremiah said to him, “The LORD’s name for you is not Pashhur, but Terror on Every Side. 4 For this is what the LORD says: ‘I will make you a terror to yourself and to all your friends; with your own eyes you will see them fall by the sword of their enemies. I will give all Judah into the hands of the king of Babylon, who will carry them away to Babylon or put them to the sword. 5 I will deliver all the wealth of this city into the hands of their enemies—all its products, all its valuables and all the treasures of the kings of Judah. They will take it away as plunder and carry it off to Babylon. 6 And you, Pashhur, and all who live in your house will go into exile to Babylon. There you will die and be buried, you and all your friends to whom you have prophesied lies.’ ” 7 You deceived me, LORD, and I was deceived ; you overpowered me and prevailed. I am ridiculed all day long; everyone mocks me. 8 Whenever I speak, I cry out proclaiming violence and destruction. So the word of the LORD has brought me insult and reproach all day long. 9 But if I say, “I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name,” his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot. 10 I hear many whispering, “Terror on every side! Denounce him! Let’s denounce him!” All my friends are waiting for me to slip, saying, “Perhaps he will be deceived; then we will prevail over him and take our revenge on him.” 11 But the LORD is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor will never be forgotten. 12 LORD Almighty, you who examine the righteous and probe the heart and mind, let me see your vengeance on them, for to you I have committed my cause. 13 Sing to the LORD! Give praise to the LORD! He rescues the life of the needy from the hands of the wicked. 14 Cursed be the day I was born! May the day my mother bore me not be blessed! 15 Cursed be the man who brought my father the news, who made him very glad, saying, “A child is born to you—a son!” 16 May that man be like the towns the LORD overthrew without pity. May he hear wailing in the morning, a battle cry at noon. 17  For he did not kill me in the womb, with my mother as my grave, her womb enlarged forever. 18 Why did I ever come out of the womb to see trouble and sorrow and to end my days in shame?

21:1 The word came to Jeremiah from the LORD when King Zedekiah sent to him Pashhur son of Malkijah and the priest Zephaniah son of Maaseiah. They said: 2 “Inquire now of the LORD for us because Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon is attacking us. Perhaps the LORD will perform wonders for us as in times past so that he will withdraw from us.” 3 But Jeremiah answered them, “Tell Zedekiah, 4 ‘This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I am about to turn against you the weapons of war that are in your hands, which you are using to fight the king of Babylon and the Babylonians who are outside the wall besieging you. And I will gather them inside this city. 5 I myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and a mighty arm in furious anger and in great wrath. 6 I will strike down those who live in this city—both man and beast—and they will die of a terrible plague. 7 After that, declares the LORD, I will give Zedekiah king of Judah, his officials and the people in this city who survive the plague, sword and famine, into the hands of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and to their enemies who want to kill them. He will put them to the sword; he will show them no mercy or pity or compassion.’ 8 “Furthermore, tell the people, ‘This is what the LORD says: See, I am setting before you the way of life and the way of death. 9 Whoever stays in this city will die by the sword, famine or plague. But whoever goes out and surrenders to the Babylonians who are besieging you will live; they will escape with their lives. 10 I have determined to do this city harm and not good, declares the LORD. It will be given into the hands of the king of Babylon, and he will destroy it with fire.’ 11 “Moreover, say to the royal house of Judah, ‘Hear the word of the LORD. 12 This is what the LORD says to you, house of David: “ ‘Administer justice every morning; rescue from the hand of the oppressor the one who has been robbed, or my wrath will break out and burn like fire because of the evil you have done— burn with no one to quench it. 13 I am against you, Jerusalem, you who live above this valley on the rocky plateau, declares the LORD— you who say, “Who can come against us? Who can enter our refuge?” 14 I will punish you as your deeds deserve, declares the LORD. I will kindle a fire in your forests that will consume everything around you.’ ”

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 THESSALONIANS 5:4 – 28

5:4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 

5 You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.

6 So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. 

7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 

8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 

9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 

11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Final Instructions

12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 

13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. 

14 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.

15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.

JULY 22

PSALMS: 22, 52, 82, 112, 142

PROVERBS: 22

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 16:16 – 18:23

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 THESSALONIANS 4:1 – 5:3

PSALMS: 22

1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

Why are you so far from helping me,

and from the words of my groaning? 

2 My God, I cry in the daytime, but you don’t answer;

In the night season, and am not silent. 

3 But you are holy,

You who inhabit the praises of Yisra’el.

4 Our fathers trusted in you.

They trusted, and you delivered them.

5 They cried to you, and were delivered.

They trusted in you, and were not put to shame. 

6 But I am a worm, and no man;

A reproach of men, and despised by the people. 

7 All those who see me mock me.

They insult me with their lips.

They shake their heads, saying, 

8 “He trusts in the LORD; Let him deliver him;

Let him rescue him, since he delights in him.” 

9 But you brought me out of the womb.

You made me trust at my mother’s breasts. 

10 I was thrown on you from my mother’s womb.

You are my God since my mother bore me. 

11 Don’t be far from me, for trouble is near.

For there is none to help.

12 Many bulls have surrounded me.

Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled me. 

13 They open their mouths wide against me,

Lions tearing prey and roaring. 

14 I am poured out like water.

All my bones are out of joint.

My heart is like wax;

It is melted within me. 

15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd.

My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth.

You have brought me into the dust of death. 

16 For dogs have surrounded me.

A company of evil-doers have enclosed me.

They pierced my hands and my feet. 

17 I can count all of my bones.

They look and stare at me. 

18 They divide my garments among them.

They cast lots for my clothing. 

19 But don’t be far off, LORD.

You are my help: hurry to help me. 

20 Deliver my soul from the sword,

My precious life from the power of the dog. 

21 Save me from the lion’s mouth;

Yes, from the horns of the wild oxen you have answered me. 

22 I will declare your name to my brothers.

In the midst of the assembly, will I praise you. 

23 You who fear the LORD, praise him!

All you descendants of Ya`akov, glorify him!

Stand in awe of him, all you descendants of Yisra’el! 

24 For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted,

Neither has he hid his face from him;

But when he cried to him, he heard. 

25 Of you comes my praise in the great assembly.

I will pay my vows before those who fear him. 

26 The humble shall eat and be satisfied.

They shall praise the LORD who seek after him.

Let your hearts live forever. 

27 All the ends of the eretz shall remember and turn to the LORD.

All the relatives of the nations shall worship before you. 

28 For the kingdom is the LORD’s.

He is the ruler over the nations. 

29 All the rich ones of the eretz shall eat and worship.

All those who go down to the dust shall bow before him,

Even he who can’t keep his soul alive.

30 Posterity shall serve him.

Future generations shall be told about the Lord. 

31 They shall come and shall declare his righteousness to a people that shall be born, For he has done it.

PSALMS: 52

1 Why do you boast of mischief, mighty man?

God’s loving kindness endures continually. 

2 Your tongue plots destruction,

Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. 

3 You love evil more than good,

Lying rather than speaking the truth.

Selah. 

4 You love all devouring words,

You deceitful tongue. 

5 God will likewise destroy you forever.

He will take you up, and pluck you out of your tent,

And root you out of the land of the living.

Selah. 

6 The righteous also will see it, and fear,

And laugh at him, saying, 

7 “Behold, this is the man who didn’t make God his strength,

But trusted in the abundance of his riches,

And strengthened himself in his wickedness.” 

8 But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in God’s house.

I trust in God’s loving kindness forever and ever. 

9 I will give you thanks forever, because you have done it.

I will hope in your name, for it is good,

In the presence of your holy ones.

PSALMS: 82

1 God presides in the great assembly.

He judges among the gods. 

2 “How long will you judge unjustly,

And show partiality to the wicked?”

Selah. 

3 “Defend the weak, the poor, and the fatherless.

Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. 

4 Rescue the weak and needy.

Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.” 

5 They don’t know, neither do they understand.

They walk back and forth in darkness.

All the foundations of the eretz are shaken. 

6 I said, “You are gods,

All of you are sons of Ha`Elyon. 

7 Nevertheless you shall die like men,

And fall like one of the rulers.” 

8 Arise, God, judge the eretz,

For you inherit all of the nations.

PSALMS: 112

1 Praise the LORD!

Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,

Who delights greatly in his mitzvot. 

2 His seed will be mighty on eretz.

The generation of the upright will be blessed. 

3 Wealth and riches are in his house.

His righteousness endures forever. 

4 Light dawns in the darkness for the upright,

Gracious, merciful, and righteous. 

5 It is well with the man who deals graciously and lends.

He will maintain his cause in judgment. 

6 For he will never be shaken.

The righteous will be remembered forever. 

7 He will not be afraid of evil news.

His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. 

8 His heart is established.

He will not be afraid in the end when he sees his adversaries. 

9 He has dispersed, he has given to the poor.

His righteousness endures forever.

His horn will be exalted with honor.

10 The wicked will see it, and be grieved.

He shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away.

The desire of the wicked will perish.

PSALMS: 142

1 I cry with my voice to the LORD.

With my voice, I ask the LORD for mercy. 

2 I pour out my complaint before him.

I tell him my troubles. 

3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,

You knew my path.

In the way in which I walk,

They have hidden a snare for me.

4 Look on my right, and see;

For there is no one who is concerned for me.

Refuge has fled from me.

No one cares for my soul. 

5 I cried to you, the LORD.

I said, “You are my refuge,

My portion in the land of the living.” 

6 Listen to my cry,

For I am in desperate need.

Deliver me from my persecutors,

For they are stronger than me. 

7 Bring my soul out of prison,

That I may give thanks to your name.

The righteous will surround me,

For you will be good to me.

PROVERBS: 22

1 A good name is more desirable than great riches;

Loving favor rather than silver and gold. 

2 The rich and the poor have this in common:

The LORD is the maker of them all. 

3 A prudent man sees danger, and hides himself;

But the simple pass on, and suffer for it.

4 The result of humility and the fear of the LORD

Is wealth, honor, and life. 

5 Thorns and snares are in the path of the wicked:

Whoever guards his soul stays from them. 

6 Train up a child in the way he should go,

And when he is old he will not depart from it. 

7 The rich rules over the poor.

The borrower is servant to the lender. 

8 He who sows wickedness reaps trouble,

And the rod of his fury will be destroyed. 

9 He who has a generous eye will be blessed;

For he shares his food with the poor. 

10 Drive out the mocker, and strife will go out;

Yes, quarrels and insults will stop. 

11 He who loves purity of heart and speaks gracefully Is the king’s friend. 

12 The eyes of the LORD watch over knowledge;

But he frustrates the words of the unfaithful. 

13 The sluggard says,

“There is a lion outside!

I will be killed in the streets!” 

14 The mouth of an adulteress is a deep pit:

He who is under the LORD’s wrath will fall into it. 

15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child:

The rod of discipline drives it far from him.

16 Whoever oppresses the poor for his own increase and whoever gives to the rich,

Both come to poverty. 

17 Turn your ear, and listen to the words of the wise.

Apply your heart to my teaching. 

18 For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you,

If all of them are ready on your lips. 

19 That your trust may be in the LORD,

I teach you today, even you. 

20 Haven’t I written to you thirty excellent things

Of counsel and knowledge, 

21 To teach you truth, reliable words,

To give sound answers to the ones who sent you? 

22 Don’t exploit the poor, because he is poor;

And don’t crush the needy in court; 

23 For the LORD will plead their case,

And plunder the life of those who plunder them. 

24 Don’t befriend a hot-tempered man,

And don’t associate with one who harbors anger: 

25 Lest you learn his ways,

And ensnare your soul. 

26 Don’t you be one of those who strike hands,

Of those who are collateral for debts. 

27 If you don’t have means to pay,

Why should he take away your bed from under you?

28 Don’t move the ancient boundary stone,

Which your fathers have set up. 

29 Do you see a man skilled in his work?

He will serve kings;

He won’t serve obscure men.

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 16:16 – 18:23

16:16 Behold, I will send for many fishermen, says the LORD, and they shall fish them up; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the clefts of the rocks. 17  For my eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from my face, neither is their iniquity concealed from my eyes. 18 First I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double, because they have polluted my land with the carcasses of their detestable things, and have filled my inheritance with their abominations. 19 LORD, my strength, and my stronghold, and my refuge in the day of affliction, to you shall the nations come from the ends of the eretz, and shall say, Our fathers have inherited nothing but lies, [even] vanity and things in which there is no profit. 20 Shall a man make to himself gods, which yet are no gods? 21 Therefore, behold, I will cause them to know, this once will I cause them to know my hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is the LORD.

17:1 The sin of Yehudah is written with a pen of iron, [and] with the point of a diamond: it is engraved on the tablet of their heart, and on the horns of your altars; 2 while their children remember their altars and their Asherim by the green trees on the high hills. 3 My mountain in the field, I will give your substance and all your treasures for a spoil, [and] your high places, because of sin, throughout all your borders. 4 You, even of yourself, shall discontinue from your heritage that I gave you; and I will cause you to serve your enemies in the land which you don’t know: for you have kindled a fire in my anger which shall burn forever. 5 Thus says the LORD: Cursed is the man who trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from the LORD. 6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good comes, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, a salt land and not inhabited. 7 Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose trust the LORD is. 8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, who spreads out its roots by the river, and shall not fear when heat comes, but its leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. 9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it? 10 I, the LORD, search the mind, I try the heart, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. 11 As the partridge that sits on [eggs] which she has not laid, so is he who gets riches, and not by right; in the midst of his days they shall leave him, and at his end he shall be a fool. 12 A glorious throne, [set] on high from the beginning, is the place of our sanctuary. 13 LORD, the hope of Yisra’el, all who forsake you shall be put to shame. Those who depart from me shall be written in the eretz, because they have forsaken the LORD, the spring of living waters. 14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for you are my praise. 15 Behold, they tell me, Where is the word of the LORD? let it come now. 16 As for me, I have not hurried from being a shepherd after you; neither have I desired the woeful day; you know: that which came out of my lips was before your face. 17  Don’t be a terror to me: you are my refuge in the day of evil. 18 Let them be put to shame who persecute me, but let not me be put to shame; let them be dismayed, but don’t let me be dismayed; bring on them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction. 19 Thus said the LORD to me: Go, and stand in the gate of the children of the people, whereby the kings of Yehudah come in, and by which they go out, and in all the gates of Yerushalayim; 20 and tell them, Hear you the word of the LORD, you kings of Yehudah, and all Yehudah, and all the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, that enter in by these gates: 21 Thus says the LORD, Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the day of Shabbat, nor bring it in by the gates of Yerushalayim; 22 neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the day of Shabbat holy, neither do any work: but make the day of Shabbat, as I commanded your fathers. 23 But they didn’t listen, neither turn their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, and might not receive instruction. 24 It shall happen, if you diligently listen to me, says the LORD, to bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the day of Shabbat, but to make the day of Shabbat holy, to do no work therein; 25 then shall there enter in by the gates of this city kings and princes sitting on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their princes, the men of Yehudah, and the inhabitants of Yerushalayim; and this city shall remain forever. 26 They shall come from the cities of Yehudah, and from the places round about Yerushalayim, and from the land of Binyamin, and from the lowland, and from the hill-country, and from the South, bringing burnt offerings, and sacrifices, and meal-offerings, and frankincense, and bringing [sacrifices of] thanksgiving, to the house of the LORD. 27  But if you will not listen to me to make the day of Shabbat holy, and not to bear a burden and enter in at the gates of Yerushalayim on the day of Shabbat; then will I kindle a fire in the gates of it, and it shall devour the palaces of Yerushalayim, and it shall not be quenched.

18:1 The word which came to Yirmeyahu from the LORD, saying, 2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear my words. 3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he was making a work on the wheels. 4 When the vessel that he made of the clay was marred in the hand of the potter, he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.  5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 6 House of Yisra’el, can’t I do with you as this potter? says the LORD. Behold, as the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, house of Yisra’el. 7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up and to break down and to destroy it; 8 if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do to them. 

9 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; 10 if they do that which is evil in my sight, that they not obey my voice, then I will repent of the good, with which I said I would benefit them. 11 Now therefore, speak to the men of Yehudah, and to the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, saying, Thus says the LORD: Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you: return you now everyone from his evil way, and amend your ways and your doings. 12 But they say, It is in vain; for we will walk after our own devices, and we will do everyone after the stubbornness of his evil heart. 13 Therefore thus says the LORD: Ask you now among the nations, who has heard such things; the virgin of Yisra’el has done a very horrible thing. 14 Shall the snow of Levanon fail from the rock of the field? [or] shall the cold waters that flow down from afar be dried up? 15 For my people have forgotten me, they have burned incense to false [gods]; and they have been made to stumble in their ways, in the ancient paths, to walk in byways, in a way not built up; 16 to make their land an astonishment, and a perpetual hissing; everyone who passes thereby shall be astonished, and shake his head. 17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will show them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity. 18 Then said they, Come, and let us devise devices against Yirmeyahu; for the law shall not perish from the Kohen, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us strike him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words. 19 Give heed to me, LORD, and listen to the voice of those who contend with me. 20 Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have dug a pit for my soul. Remember how I stood before you to speak good for them, to turn away your wrath from them. 21 Therefore deliver up their children to the famine, and give them over to the power of the sword; and let their wives become childless, and widows; and let their men be slain of death, [and] their young men struck of the sword in battle. 22 Let a cry be heard from their houses, when you shall bring a troop suddenly on them; for they have dug a pit to take me, and hid snares for my feet. 23 Yet, LORD, you know all their counsel against me to kill me; don’t forgive their iniquity, neither blot out their sin from your sight; but let them be overthrown before you; deal you with them in the time of your anger.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 THESSALONIANS 4:1 – 5:3

4:1 Finally then, brothers, we beg and exhort you in the Lord Yeshua, that, as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, — that you abound more and more. 2 For you know what charge we gave you through the Lord Yeshua. 3 For this is the will of God: your sanctification, that you abstain from sexual immorality, 4 that each one of you know how to possess himself of his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in the passion of lust, even as the Goyim who don’t know God; 6 that no one should take advantage of and wrong a brother or sister in this matter; because the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as also we forewarned you and testified. 7  For God called us not for uncleanness, but in sanctification. 8 Therefore he who rejects, doesn’t reject man, but God, who has also given his Ruach HaKodesh to you. 9 But concerning brotherly love, you have no need that one write to you. For you yourselves are taught by God to love one another, 10 for indeed you do it toward all the brothers who are in all Macedonia. But we exhort you, brothers, that you abound more and more; 11and that you make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, even as we charged you; 12 that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and may have need of nothing. 13 But we don’t want you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning those who have fallen asleep, so that you don’t grieve like the rest, who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Yeshua died and rose again, even so those who have fallen asleep in Yeshua will God bring with him. 15 For this we tell you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left to the coming of the Lord, will in no way precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the chief angel, and with God’s shofar. The dead in Messiah will rise first, 17 then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. So we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

5:1 But concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need that anything be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know well that the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night. 3 For when they are saying, “Shalom and safety,” then sudden destruction will come on them, like birth pains on a pregnant woman; and they will in no way escape.

PSALMS: 21, 51, 81, 111, 141

PROVERBS: 21

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 14:11 – 16:15

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 THESSALONIANS 2:9 – 3:13

PSALMS: 21

1 The king rejoices in your strength, LORD!

How greatly he rejoices in your yeshu`ah! 

2 You have given him his heart’s desire,

And have not withheld the request of his lips.

Selah. 

3 For you meet him with the blessings of goodness;

You set a crown of fine gold on his head. 

4 He asked life of you, you gave it to him,

Even length of days forever and ever. 

5 His glory is great in your salvation.

You lay honor and majesty on him. 

6 For you make him most blessed forever.

You make him glad with joy in your presence. 

7 For the king trusts in the LORD.

Through the loving kindness of Ha`Elyon,

he shall not be moved. 

8 Your hand will find out all of your enemies.

Your right hand will find out those who hate you. 

9 You will make them as a fiery furnace in the time of your anger.

The LORD will swallow them up in his wrath.

The fire shall devour them. 

10 You will destroy their descendants from the eretz,

Their posterity from among the children of men. 

11 For they intended evil against you.

They plotted evil against you which cannot succeed. 

12 For you will make them turn their back,

When you aim drawn bows at their face. 

13 Be exalted, LORD, in your strength,

So we will sing and praise your power.

PSALMS: 51

1 Have mercy on me, God, according to your loving kindness.

According to the multitude of your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions. 

2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity.

Cleanse me from my sin. 

3 For I know my transgressions.

My sin is constantly before me. 

4 Against you, and you only, have I sinned,

And done that which is evil in your sight;

That you may be proved right when you speak,

And justified when you judge. 

5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity.

In sin did my mother conceive me. 

6 Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts.

You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.

7 Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean.

Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. 

8 Let me hear joy and gladness,

That the bones which you have broken may rejoice. 

9 Hide your face from my sins,

And blot out all of my iniquities. 

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God.

Renew a right spirit within me. 

11 Don’t throw me from your presence,

And don’t take your holy Spirit from me. 

12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation.

Uphold me with a willing spirit. 

13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways.

Sinners shall be converted to you.

14 Deliver me from blood guiltiness,

O God, the God of my salvation.

My tongue shall sing aloud of your righteousness. 

15 Lord, open my lips.

My mouth shall declare your praise. 

16 For you don’t delight in sacrifice, or else I would give it.

You have no pleasure in burnt offering. 

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit.

A broken and contrite heart,

O God, you will not despise. 

18 Do well in your good pleasure to Tziyon.

Build the walls of Yerushalayim. 

19 Then will you delight in the sacrifices of righteousness,

In burnt offerings and in whole burnt offerings.

Then they will offer bulls on your altar.

PSALMS: 81

1 Sing aloud to God, our strength!

Make a joyful noise to the God of Ya`akov! 

2 Raise a song, and bring here the tambourine,

The pleasant lyre with the harp. 

3 Blow the shofar at the New Moon,

At the full moon, on our feast day. 

4 For it is a statute for Yisra’el,

An ordinance of the God of Ya`akov. 

5 He appointed it in Yosef for a testimony,

When he went out over the land of Mitzrayim,

I heard a language that I didn’t know. 

6 “I removed his shoulder from the burden.

His hands were freed from the basket. 

7 You called in trouble, and I delivered you.

I answered you in the secret place of thunder.

I tested you at the waters of Merivah.”

Selah. 

8 “Hear, my people, and I will testify to you.

Yisra’el, if you would listen to me! 

9 There shall be no strange god in you,

Neither shall you worship any foreign god. 

10 I am the LORD, your God,

Who brought you up out of the land of Mitzrayim.

Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. 

11 But my people didn’t listen to my voice.

Yisra’el desired none of me.

12 So I let them go after the stubbornness of their hearts,

That they might walk in their own counsels. 

13 Oh that my people would listen to me,

That Yisra’el would walk in my ways! 

14 I would soon subdue their enemies,

And turn my hand against their adversaries. 

15 The haters of the LORD would cringe before him,

And their punishment would last forever. 

16 But he would have also fed them with the finest of the wheat.

I will satisfy you with honey out of the rock.”

PSALMS: 111

1 Praise the LORD!

I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart,

In the council of the upright, and in the congregation. 

2 The works of the LORD are great,

Pondered by all those who delight in them. 

3 His work is honor and majesty.

His righteousness endures forever. 

4 He has caused his wonderful works to be remembered.

The LORD is gracious and merciful. 

5 He has given food to those who fear him.

He always remembers his covenant. 

6 He has shown his people the power of his works,

In giving them the heritage of the nations. 

7 The works of his hands are truth and justice.

All his precepts are sure. 

8 They are established forever and ever.

They are done in truth and uprightness. 

9 He has sent redemption to his people.

He has ordained his covenant forever.

His name is holy and awesome! 

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

All those who do his work have a good understanding.

His praise endures forever!

PSALMS: 141

1 LORD, I have called on you. Come to me quickly!

Listen to my voice when I call to you. 

2 Let my prayer be set before you like incense; ‘

The lifting up of my hands like the evening sacrifice. 

3 Set a watch, LORD, before my mouth.

Keep the door of my lips. 

4 Don’t incline my heart to any evil thing, ‘

To practice deeds of wickedness with men who work iniquity.

Don’t let me eat of their delicacies. 

5 Let the righteous strike me, it is kindness;

Let him reprove me, it is like oil on the head;

Don’t let my head refuse it;

Yet my prayer is always against evil deeds. 

6 Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock.

They will hear my words, for they are well spoken. 

7 “As when one plows and breaks up the eretz,

Our bones are scattered at the mouth of She’ol.” 

8 For my eyes are on you, LORD, the Lord.
In you, I take refuge. Don’t leave my soul destitute. 

9 Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me,

From the traps of the workers of iniquity. 

10 Let the wicked fall together into their own nets,

While I pass by.

PROVERBS: 21

1 The king’s heart is in the LORD’s hand like the watercourses.

He turns it wherever he desires. 

2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes,

But the LORD weighs the hearts. 

3 To do righteousness and justice

Is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. 

4 A high look, and a proud heart,

The lamp of the wicked, is sin. 

5 The plans of the diligent surely lead to profit;

And everyone who is hasty surely rushes to poverty. 

6 Getting treasures by a lying tongue

Is a fleeting vapor for those who seek death. 

7 The violence of the wicked will drive them away,

Because they refuse to do what is right. 

8 The way of the guilty is devious,

But the conduct of the innocent is upright. 

9 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop,

Than to share a house with a contentious woman. 

10 The soul of the wicked desires evil;

His neighbor finds no mercy in his eyes. 

11 When the mocker is punished, the simple gains wisdom;

When the wise is instructed, he receives knowledge. 

12 The Righteous One considers the house of the wicked,

And brings the wicked to ruin. 

13 Whoever stops his ears at the cry of the poor,

He will also cry out, but shall not be heard.

14 A gift in secret pacifies anger;

And a bribe in the cloak, strong wrath. 

15 It is joy to the righteous to do justice;

But it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity. 

16 The man who wanders out of the way of understanding

Shall rest in the assembly of the dead. 

17  He who loves pleasure shall be a poor man:

He who loves wine and oil shall not be rich. 

18 The wicked is a ransom for the righteous;

The treacherous for the upright. 

19 It is better to dwell in a desert land,

Than with a contentious and fretful woman. 

20 There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise;

But a foolish man swallows it up. 

21 He who follows after righteousness and kindness

Finds life, righteousness, and honor. 

22 A wise man scales the city of the mighty,

And brings down the strength of its confidence. 

23Whoever guards his mouth and his tongue

Keeps his soul from troubles. 

24 The proud and haughty man, “scoffer” is his name;

He works in the arrogance of pride. 

25 The desire of the sluggard kills him,

For his hands refuse to labor. 

26 There are those who covet greedily all the day long;

But the righteous gives and doesn’t withhold.

27 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination:

How much more, when he brings it with a wicked mind! 

28 A false witness will perish,

And a man who listens speaks to eternity. 

29 A wicked man hardens his face;

But as for the upright, he establishes his ways. 

30 There is no wisdom nor understanding

Nor counsel against the LORD. 

31 The horse is prepared for the day of battle;

But victory is with the LORD.

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 14:11 – 16:15

14:11 The LORD said to me, Don’t pray for this people for [their] good. 12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and meal-offering, I will not accept them; but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence. 13 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets tell them, You shall not see the sword, neither shall you have famine; but I will give you assured shalom in this place. 14 Then the LORD said to me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name; I didn’t send them, neither have I commanded them, neither spoke I to them: they prophesy to you a lying vision, and divination, and a thing of nothing, and the deceit of their own heart. 15 Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the prophets who prophesy in my name, and I didn’t send them, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land: By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed. 16 The people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Yerushalayim because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them-them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness on them. 17 You shall say this word to them, Let my eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease; for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous wound. 18 If I go forth into the field, then, behold, the slain with the sword! and if I enter into the city, then, behold, those who are sick with famine! for both the prophet and the Kohen go about in the land, and have no knowledge. 19 Have you utterly rejected Yehudah? has your soul loathed Tziyon? why have you struck us, and there is no healing for us? We looked for shalom, but no good came; and for a time of healing, and, behold, dismay! 20 We acknowledge, LORD, our wickedness, and the iniquity of our fathers; for we have sinned against you. 21 Do not abhor [us], for your name’s sake; do not disgrace the throne of your glory: remember, don’t break your covenant with us.22 Are there any among the vanities of the nations that can cause rain? or can the sky give showers? Aren’t you he, the LORD our God? therefore we will wait for you; for you have made all these things.

15:1 Then said the LORD to me, Though Moshe and Shemu’el stood before me, yet my mind would not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth. 2 It shall happen, when they tell you, Where shall we go forth? then you shall tell them, Thus says the LORD: Such as are for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for captivity, to captivity. 3 I will appoint over them four kinds, says the LORD: the sword to kill, and the dogs to tear, and the birds of the sky, and the animals of the eretz, to devour and to destroy. 4 I will cause them to be tossed back and forth among all the kingdoms of the eretz, because of Menashsheh, the son of Hizkiyahu, king of Yehudah, for that which he did in Yerushalayim. 5 For who will have pity on you, Yerushalayim? or who will bemoan you? or who will turn aside to ask of your welfare? 6 You have rejected me, says the LORD, you are gone backward: therefore have I stretched out my hand against you, and destroyed you; I am weary with repenting. 7 I have winnowed them with a fan in the gates of the land; I have bereaved [them] of children, I have destroyed my people; they didn’t return from their ways. 8 Their widows are increased to me above the sand of the seas; I have brought on them against the mother of the young men a destroyer at noonday: I have caused anguish and terrors to fall on her suddenly. 9 She who has borne seven languishes; she has given up the spirit; her sun is gone down while it was yet day; she has been put to shame and confounded: and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword before their enemies, says the LORD. 10 Woe is me, my mother, that you have borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole eretz! I have not lent, neither have men lent to me; [yet] everyone of them does curse me. 11 The LORD said, Most assuredly I will strengthen you for good; most assuredly I will cause the enemy to make supplication to you in the time of evil and in the time of affliction. 12 Can one break iron, even iron from the north, and brass? 13 Your substance and your treasures will I give for a spoil without price, and that for all your sins, even in all your borders. 14 I will make [them] to pass with your enemies into a land which you don’t know; for a fire is kindled in my anger, which shall burn on you. 15 LORD, you know; remember me, and visit me, and avenge me of my persecutors; don’t take me away in your longsuffering: know that for your sake I have suffered reproach. 16 Your words were found, and I ate them; and your words were to me a joy and the rejoicing of my heart: for I am called by your name, the LORD, God Tzva’ot. 17 I didn’t sit in the assembly of those who make merry, nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of your hand; for you have filled me with indignation. 18 Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuses to be healed? will you indeed be to me as a deceitful [brook], as waters that fail? 19 Therefore thus says the LORD, If you return, then will I bring you again, that you may stand before me; and if you take forth the precious from the vile, you shall be as my mouth: they shall return to you, but you shall not return to them. 20 I will make you to this people a fortified brazen wall; and they shall fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you; for I am with you to save you and to deliver you, says the LORD. 21 I will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem you out of the hand of the terrible.

16:1 The word of the LORD came also to me, saying, 2 You shall not take a wife, neither shall you have sons or daughters, in this place. 3 For thus says the LORD concerning the sons and concerning the daughters who are born in this place, and concerning their mothers who bore them, and concerning their fathers who became the father of them in this land: 4 They shall die grievous deaths: they shall not be lamented, neither shall they be buried; they shall be as dung on the surface of the ground; and they shall be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and their dead bodies shall be food for the birds of the sky, and for the animals of the eretz. 5 For thus says the LORD, Don’t enter into the house of mourning, neither go to lament, neither bemoan them; for I have taken away my shalom from this people, says the LORD, even lovingkindness and tender mercies. 6 Both great and small shall die in this land; they shall not be buried, neither shall men lament for them, nor cut themselves, nor make themselves bald for them; 

7 neither shall men break [bread] for them in mourning, to comfort them for the dead; neither shall men give them the cup of consolation to drink for their father or for their mother. 8 You shall not go into the house of feasting to sit with them, to eat and to drink. 9 For thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Behold, I will cause to cease out of this place, before your eyes and in your days, the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride. 10 It shall happen, when you shall show this people all these words, and they shall tell you, Why has the LORD pronounced all this great evil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God? 11 Then shall you tell them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, says the LORD, and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshiped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my law; 12 and you have done evil more than your fathers; for, behold, you walk every one after the stubbornness of his evil heart, so that you don’t listen to me: 13 therefore will I cast you forth out of this land into the land that you have not known, neither you nor your fathers; and there shall you serve other gods day and night; for I will show you no favor. 14 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that it shall no more be said, As the LORD lives, who brought up the children of Yisra’el out of the land of Mitzrayim; 15 but, As the LORD lives, who brought up the children of Yisra’el from the land of the north, and from all the countries where he had driven them. I will bring them again into their land that I gave to their fathers.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 THESSALONIANS 2:9 – 3:13

2:9 For you remember, brothers, our labor and travail; for working night and day, that we might not burden any of you, we preached to you the Good News of God. 10 You are witnesses with God, how holy, righteously, and blamelessly we behaved ourselves toward you who believe. 11 As you know how we exhorted, comforted, and implored everyone of you, as a father does his own children, 12 to the end that you should walk worthily of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory. 13 For this cause we also thank God without ceasing, that, when you received from us the word of the message of God, you accepted it not as the word of men, but, as it is in truth, the word of God, which also works in you who believe. 14 For you, brothers, became imitators of the assemblies of God which are in Yehudah in Messiah Yeshua; for you also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, even as they did from the Yehudim; 15 who killed both the Lord Yeshua and their own prophets, and drove us out, and didn’t please God, and are contrary to all men; 16 forbidding us to speak to the Goyim that they may be saved; to fill up their sins always. But wrath has come on them to the uttermost. 17 But we, brothers, being bereaved of you for a short season, in presence, not in heart, tried even harder to see your face with great desire, 18 because we wanted to come to you — indeed, I, Sha’ul, once and again — but Hasatan hindered us. 19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Isn’t it even you, before our Lord Yeshua at his coming? 20 For you are our glory and our joy.

3:1 Therefore, when we couldn’t stand it any longer, we thought it good to be left behind at Athens alone,2 and sent Timothy, our brother and God’s servant in the Good News of Messiah, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith; 3 that no one be moved by these afflictions. For you know that we are appointed to this task. 4 For most assuredly, when we were with you, we told you beforehand that we are to suffer affliction, even as it happened, and you know. 5 For this cause I also, when I couldn’t stand it any longer, sent that I might know your faith, for fear that by any means the tempter had tempted you, and our labor would have been in vain. 6 But when Timothy came just now to us from you, and brought us glad news of your faith and love, and that you have good memories of us always, longing to see us, even as we also long to see you; 7 for this cause, brothers, we were comforted over you in all our distress and affliction through your faith. 8 For now we live, if you stand fast in the Lord. 9 For what thanksgiving can we render again to God for you, for all the joy with which we rejoice for your sakes before our God; 10 night and day praying exceedingly that we may see your face, and may perfect that which is lacking in your faith? 11 Now may our God and Father himself, and our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, direct our way to you; 12 and the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we also do toward you, 13 to the end he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Yeshua with all his holy ones.

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 14:11 – 16:15

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 THESSALONIANS 2:9 – 3:13

PSALMS: 21

1 The king rejoices in your strength, LORD!

How greatly he rejoices in your yeshu`ah! 

2 You have given him his heart’s desire,

And have not withheld the request of his lips.

Selah. 

3 For you meet him with the blessings of goodness;

You set a crown of fine gold on his head. 

4 He asked life of you, you gave it to him,

Even length of days forever and ever. 

5 His glory is great in your salvation.

You lay honor and majesty on him. 

6 For you make him most blessed forever.

You make him glad with joy in your presence. 

7 For the king trusts in the LORD.

Through the loving kindness of Ha`Elyon,

he shall not be moved. 

8 Your hand will find out all of your enemies.

Your right hand will find out those who hate you. 

9 You will make them as a fiery furnace in the time of your anger.

The LORD will swallow them up in his wrath.

The fire shall devour them. 

10 You will destroy their descendants from the eretz,

Their posterity from among the children of men. 

11 For they intended evil against you.

They plotted evil against you which cannot succeed. 

12 For you will make them turn their back,

When you aim drawn bows at their face. 

13 Be exalted, LORD, in your strength,

So we will sing and praise your power.

PSALMS: 51

1 Have mercy on me, God, according to your loving kindness.

According to the multitude of your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions. 

2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity.

Cleanse me from my sin. 

3 For I know my transgressions.

My sin is constantly before me. 

4 Against you, and you only, have I sinned,

And done that which is evil in your sight;

That you may be proved right when you speak,

And justified when you judge. 

5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity.

In sin did my mother conceive me. 

6 Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts.

You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.

7 Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean.

Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. 

8 Let me hear joy and gladness,

That the bones which you have broken may rejoice. 

9 Hide your face from my sins,

And blot out all of my iniquities. 

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God.

Renew a right spirit within me. 

11 Don’t throw me from your presence,

And don’t take your holy Spirit from me. 

12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation.

Uphold me with a willing spirit. 

13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways.

Sinners shall be converted to you.

14 Deliver me from blood guiltiness,

O God, the God of my salvation.

My tongue shall sing aloud of your righteousness. 

15 Lord, open my lips.

My mouth shall declare your praise. 

16 For you don’t delight in sacrifice, or else I would give it.

You have no pleasure in burnt offering. 

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit.

A broken and contrite heart,

O God, you will not despise. 

18 Do well in your good pleasure to Tziyon.

Build the walls of Yerushalayim. 

19 Then will you delight in the sacrifices of righteousness,

In burnt offerings and in whole burnt offerings.

Then they will offer bulls on your altar.

PSALMS: 81

1 Sing aloud to God, our strength!

Make a joyful noise to the God of Ya`akov! 

2 Raise a song, and bring here the tambourine,

The pleasant lyre with the harp. 

3 Blow the shofar at the New Moon,

At the full moon, on our feast day. 

4 For it is a statute for Yisra’el,

An ordinance of the God of Ya`akov. 

5 He appointed it in Yosef for a testimony,

When he went out over the land of Mitzrayim,

I heard a language that I didn’t know. 

6 “I removed his shoulder from the burden.

His hands were freed from the basket. 

7 You called in trouble, and I delivered you.

I answered you in the secret place of thunder.

I tested you at the waters of Merivah.”

Selah. 

8 “Hear, my people, and I will testify to you.

Yisra’el, if you would listen to me! 

9 There shall be no strange god in you,

Neither shall you worship any foreign god. 

10 I am the LORD, your God,

Who brought you up out of the land of Mitzrayim.

Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. 

11 But my people didn’t listen to my voice.

Yisra’el desired none of me.

12 So I let them go after the stubbornness of their hearts,

That they might walk in their own counsels. 

13 Oh that my people would listen to me,

That Yisra’el would walk in my ways! 

14 I would soon subdue their enemies,

And turn my hand against their adversaries. 

15 The haters of the LORD would cringe before him,

And their punishment would last forever. 

16 But he would have also fed them with the finest of the wheat.

I will satisfy you with honey out of the rock.”

PSALMS: 111

1 Praise the LORD!

I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart,

In the council of the upright, and in the congregation. 

2 The works of the LORD are great,

Pondered by all those who delight in them. 

3 His work is honor and majesty.

His righteousness endures forever. 

4 He has caused his wonderful works to be remembered.

The LORD is gracious and merciful. 

5 He has given food to those who fear him.

He always remembers his covenant. 

6 He has shown his people the power of his works,

In giving them the heritage of the nations. 

7 The works of his hands are truth and justice.

All his precepts are sure. 

8 They are established forever and ever.

They are done in truth and uprightness. 

9 He has sent redemption to his people.

He has ordained his covenant forever.

His name is holy and awesome! 

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

All those who do his work have a good understanding.

His praise endures forever!

14:11 The LORD said to me, Don’t pray for this people for [their] good. 12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and meal-offering, I will not accept them; but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence. 13 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets tell them, You shall not see the sword, neither shall you have famine; but I will give you assured shalom in this place. 14 Then the LORD said to me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name; I didn’t send them, neither have I commanded them, neither spoke I to them: they prophesy to you a lying vision, and divination, and a thing of nothing, and the deceit of their own heart. 15 Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the prophets who prophesy in my name, and I didn’t send them, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land: By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed. 16 The people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Yerushalayim because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them-them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness on them. 17 You shall say this word to them, Let my eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease; for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous wound. 18 If I go forth into the field, then, behold, the slain with the sword! and if I enter into the city, then, behold, those who are sick with famine! for both the prophet and the Kohen go about in the land, and have no knowledge. 19 Have you utterly rejected Yehudah? has your soul loathed Tziyon? why have you struck us, and there is no healing for us? We looked for shalom, but no good came; and for a time of healing, and, behold, dismay! 20 We acknowledge, LORD, our wickedness, and the iniquity of our fathers; for we have sinned against you. 21 Do not abhor [us], for your name’s sake; do not disgrace the throne of your glory: remember, don’t break your covenant with us.22 Are there any among the vanities of the nations that can cause rain? or can the sky give showers? Aren’t you he, the LORD our God? therefore we will wait for you; for you have made all these things.

15:1 Then said the LORD to me, Though Moshe and Shemu’el stood before me, yet my mind would not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth. 2 It shall happen, when they tell you, Where shall we go forth? then you shall tell them, Thus says the LORD: Such as are for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for captivity, to captivity. 3 I will appoint over them four kinds, says the LORD: the sword to kill, and the dogs to tear, and the birds of the sky, and the animals of the eretz, to devour and to destroy. 4 I will cause them to be tossed back and forth among all the kingdoms of the eretz, because of Menashsheh, the son of Hizkiyahu, king of Yehudah, for that which he did in Yerushalayim. 5 For who will have pity on you, Yerushalayim? or who will bemoan you? or who will turn aside to ask of your welfare? 6 You have rejected me, says the LORD, you are gone backward: therefore have I stretched out my hand against you, and destroyed you; I am weary with repenting. 7 I have winnowed them with a fan in the gates of the land; I have bereaved [them] of children, I have destroyed my people; they didn’t return from their ways. 8 Their widows are increased to me above the sand of the seas; I have brought on them against the mother of the young men a destroyer at noonday: I have caused anguish and terrors to fall on her suddenly. 9 She who has borne seven languishes; she has given up the spirit; her sun is gone down while it was yet day; she has been put to shame and confounded: and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword before their enemies, says the LORD. 10 Woe is me, my mother, that you have borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole eretz! I have not lent, neither have men lent to me; [yet] everyone of them does curse me. 11 The LORD said, Most assuredly I will strengthen you for good; most assuredly I will cause the enemy to make supplication to you in the time of evil and in the time of affliction. 12 Can one break iron, even iron from the north, and brass? 13 Your substance and your treasures will I give for a spoil without price, and that for all your sins, even in all your borders. 14 I will make [them] to pass with your enemies into a land which you don’t know; for a fire is kindled in my anger, which shall burn on you. 15 LORD, you know; remember me, and visit me, and avenge me of my persecutors; don’t take me away in your longsuffering: know that for your sake I have suffered reproach. 16 Your words were found, and I ate them; and your words were to me a joy and the rejoicing of my heart: for I am called by your name, the LORD, God Tzva’ot. 17 I didn’t sit in the assembly of those who make merry, nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of your hand; for you have filled me with indignation. 18 Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuses to be healed? will you indeed be to me as a deceitful [brook], as waters that fail? 19 Therefore thus says the LORD, If you return, then will I bring you again, that you may stand before me; and if you take forth the precious from the vile, you shall be as my mouth: they shall return to you, but you shall not return to them. 20 I will make you to this people a fortified brazen wall; and they shall fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you; for I am with you to save you and to deliver you, says the LORD. 21 I will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem you out of the hand of the terrible.

16:1 The word of the LORD came also to me, saying, 2 You shall not take a wife, neither shall you have sons or daughters, in this place. 3 For thus says the LORD concerning the sons and concerning the daughters who are born in this place, and concerning their mothers who bore them, and concerning their fathers who became the father of them in this land: 4 They shall die grievous deaths: they shall not be lamented, neither shall they be buried; they shall be as dung on the surface of the ground; and they shall be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and their dead bodies shall be food for the birds of the sky, and for the animals of the eretz. 5 For thus says the LORD, Don’t enter into the house of mourning, neither go to lament, neither bemoan them; for I have taken away my shalom from this people, says the LORD, even lovingkindness and tender mercies. 6 Both great and small shall die in this land; they shall not be buried, neither shall men lament for them, nor cut themselves, nor make themselves bald for them; 

7 neither shall men break [bread] for them in mourning, to comfort them for the dead; neither shall men give them the cup of consolation to drink for their father or for their mother. 8 You shall not go into the house of feasting to sit with them, to eat and to drink. 9 For thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Behold, I will cause to cease out of this place, before your eyes and in your days, the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride. 10 It shall happen, when you shall show this people all these words, and they shall tell you, Why has the LORD pronounced all this great evil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God? 11 Then shall you tell them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, says the LORD, and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshiped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my law; 12 and you have done evil more than your fathers; for, behold, you walk every one after the stubbornness of his evil heart, so that you don’t listen to me: 13 therefore will I cast you forth out of this land into the land that you have not known, neither you nor your fathers; and there shall you serve other gods day and night; for I will show you no favor. 14 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that it shall no more be said, As the LORD lives, who brought up the children of Yisra’el out of the land of Mitzrayim; 15 but, As the LORD lives, who brought up the children of Yisra’el from the land of the north, and from all the countries where he had driven them. I will bring them again into their land that I gave to their fathers.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 THESSALONIANS 2:9 – 3:13

2:9 For you remember, brothers, our labor and travail; for working night and day, that we might not burden any of you, we preached to you the Good News of God. 10 You are witnesses with God, how holy, righteously, and blamelessly we behaved ourselves toward you who believe. 11 As you know how we exhorted, comforted, and implored everyone of you, as a father does his own children, 12 to the end that you should walk worthily of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory. 13 For this cause we also thank God without ceasing, that, when you received from us the word of the message of God, you accepted it not as the word of men, but, as it is in truth, the word of God, which also works in you who believe. 14 For you, brothers, became imitators of the assemblies of God which are in Yehudah in Messiah Yeshua; for you also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, even as they did from the Yehudim; 15 who killed both the Lord Yeshua and their own prophets, and drove us out, and didn’t please God, and are contrary to all men; 16 forbidding us to speak to the Goyim that they may be saved; to fill up their sins always. But wrath has come on them to the uttermost. 17 But we, brothers, being bereaved of you for a short season, in presence, not in heart, tried even harder to see your face with great desire, 18 because we wanted to come to you — indeed, I, Sha’ul, once and again — but Hasatan hindered us. 19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Isn’t it even you, before our Lord Yeshua at his coming? 20 For you are our glory and our joy.

3:1 Therefore, when we couldn’t stand it any longer, we thought it good to be left behind at Athens alone,2 and sent Timothy, our brother and God’s servant in the Good News of Messiah, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith; 3 that no one be moved by these afflictions. For you know that we are appointed to this task. 4 For most assuredly, when we were with you, we told you beforehand that we are to suffer affliction, even as it happened, and you know. 5 For this cause I also, when I couldn’t stand it any longer, sent that I might know your faith, for fear that by any means the tempter had tempted you, and our labor would have been in vain. 6 But when Timothy came just now to us from you, and brought us glad news of your faith and love, and that you have good memories of us always, longing to see us, even as we also long to see you; 7 for this cause, brothers, we were comforted over you in all our distress and affliction through your faith. 8 For now we live, if you stand fast in the Lord. 9 For what thanksgiving can we render again to God for you, for all the joy with which we rejoice for your sakes before our God; 10 night and day praying exceedingly that we may see your face, and may perfect that which is lacking in your faith? 11 Now may our God and Father himself, and our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, direct our way to you; 12 and the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we also do toward you, 13 to the end he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Yeshua with all his holy ones.
