JUNE 24

PSALMS: 24, 54, 84, 114, 144

PROVERBS: 24

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 12:1 – 14:32

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 13:1 – 14

PSALMS: 24

1 The eretz is the LORD’s, with its fullness;

The world, and those who dwell therein. 

2 For he has founded it on the seas,

And established it on the floods. 

3 Who may ascend to the LORD’s hill?

Who may stand in his holy place? 

4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart;

Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood,

And has not sworn deceitfully. 

5 He shall receive a blessing from the LORD,

Righteousness from the God of his salvation. 

6 This is the generation of those who seek Him,

Who seek your face — even Ya`akov.

Selah. 

7 Lift up your heads, you gates;

Be lifted up, you everlasting doors:

The King of glory will come in. 

8 Who is the King of glory?

The LORD strong and mighty,

The LORD mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, you gates;

Yes, lift them up, you everlasting doors:

The King of glory will come in. 

10 Who is this King of glory?

The LORD of Hosts,

He is the King of glory.

Selah.

PSALMS: 54

1 Save me, God, by your name.

Vindicate me in your might. 

2 Hear my prayer, God.

Listen to the words of my mouth. 

3 For strangers have risen up against me.

Violent men have sought after my soul.

They haven’t set God before them.

Selah. 

4 Behold, God is my helper.

The Lord is the one who sustains my soul. 

5 He will repay the evil to my enemies.

Destroy them in your truth. 

6 With a free will offering, I will sacrifice to you.

I will give thanks to your name, LORD, for it is good. 

7 For he has delivered me out of all trouble.

My eye has seen triumph over my enemies.

PSALMS: 84

1 How lovely are your dwellings,

LORD of Hosts! 

2 My soul longs, and even faints for the courts of the LORD.

My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. 

3 Yes, the sparrow has found a home,

And the swallow a nest for herself,

where she may have her young,

Near your altars, LORD of Hosts,

My King, and my God. 

4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house.

They are always praising you. Selah. 

5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in you;

Who have set their hearts on a pilgrimage. 

6 Passing through the valley of Weeping,

they make it a place of springs.

Yes, the autumn rain covers it with blessings. 

7 They go from strength to strength.

Everyone of them appears before God in Tziyon. 

8 LORD, God Tzva’ot, hear my prayer.

Listen, God of Ya`akov.

Selah. 

9 Behold, God our shield,

Look at the face of your anointed. 

10 For a day in your courts is better than a thousand.

I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God,

Than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. 

11 For the LORD God is a sun and a shield.

The LORD will give grace and glory.

He withholds no good thing from those who walk blamelessly. 

12 LORD of Hosts,

Blessed is the man who trusts in you.

PSALMS: 114

1 When Yisra’el went forth out of Mitzrayim,

The house of Ya`akov from a people of foreign language; 

2 Yehudah became his sanctuary,

Yisra’el his dominion. 

3 The sea saw it, and fled.

The Yarden was driven back. 

4 The mountains skipped like rams,

The little hills like lambs. 

5 What was it, you sea, that you fled?

You Yarden, that you turned back? 

6 You mountains, that you skipped like rams;

You little hills, like lambs? 

7 Tremble, you eretz, at the presence of the Lord,

At the presence of the God of Ya`akov, 

8 Who turned the rock into a pool of water,

The flint into a spring of waters.

PSALMS: 144

1 Blessed be the LORD, my rock,

Who teaches my hands to war,

And my fingers to battle: 

2 My loving kindness, my fortress,

My high tower, my deliverer,

My shield, and he in whom I take refuge;

Who subdues my people under me. 

3 LORD, what is man, that you care for him?

Or the son of man, that you think of him? 

4 Man is like a breath.

His days are like a shadow that passes away. 

5 Part your heavens, LORD, and come down.

Touch the mountains, and they will smoke. 

6 Throw out lightning, and scatter them.

Send out your arrows, and rout them. 

7 Stretch out your hand from above,

Rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters,

Out of the hands of foreigners; 

8 Whose mouths speak deceit,

Whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood. 

9 I will sing a new song to you, God.

On a ten-stringed lyre,

I will sing praises to you. 

10 You are he who gives salvation to kings,

Who rescues David, his servant, from the deadly sword. 

11 Rescue me, and deliver me out of the hands of foreigners,

Whose mouths speak deceit,

Whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood. 

12 Then our sons will be like well-nurtured plants,

Our daughters like pillars carved to adorn a palace. 

13 Our barns are full, filled with all kinds of provision.

Our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields. 

14 Our oxen will pull heavy loads.

There is no breaking in, and no going away,

And no outcry in our streets. 

15 Happy are the people who are in such a situation.

Happy are the people whose God is the LORD.

PROVERBS: 24

1 Don’t you be envious against evil men;

Neither desire to be with them: 

2 For their hearts plot violence,

And their lips talk about mischief. 

3 Through wisdom a house is built;

By understanding it is established; 

4 By knowledge the rooms are filled

With all rare and beautiful treasure. 

5 A wise man has great power;

And a knowledgeable man increases strength; 

6 For by wise guidance you wage your war;

And victory is in many advisors. 

7 Wisdom is too high for a fool:

He doesn’t open his mouth in the gate. 

8 One who plots to do evil

Will be called a schemer. 

9 The schemes of folly are sin.

The mocker is detested by men. 

10 If you falter in the time of trouble,

Your strength is small. 

11 Rescue those who are being led away to death!

Indeed, hold back those who are staggering to the slaughter! 

12 If you say,

“Behold, we didn’t know this;”

Doesn’t he who weighs the hearts consider it?

He who keeps your soul, doesn’t he know it?

Shall he not render to every man according to his work?

13 My son, eat honey, for it is good;

The droppings of the honeycomb, which are sweet to your taste: 

14 So you shall know wisdom to be to your soul;

If you have found it, then will there be a reward,

Your hope will not be cut off. 

15 Don’t lay in wait, wicked man, against the habitation of the righteous.

Don’t destroy his resting-place: 

16 For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises up again;

But the wicked are overthrown by calamity. 

17 Don’t rejoice when your enemy falls.

Don’t let your heart be glad when he is overthrown;

18 Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him,

And he turn away his wrath from him. 

19 Don’t fret yourself because of evildoers;

Neither be envious of the wicked: 

20 For there will be no reward to the evil man;

And the lamp of the wicked shall be snuffed out. 

21 My son, fear the LORD and the king.

Don’t join those who are rebellious: 

22 For their calamity will rise suddenly;

The destruction from them both — who knows? 

23 These also are sayings of the wise.

To show partiality in judgment is not good. 

24 He who says to the wicked, “You are righteous;”

Peoples shall curse him, and nations shall abhor him — 

25 But it will go well with those who convict the guilty,

And a rich blessing will come on them. 

26 An honest answer Is like a kiss on the lips. 

27 Prepare your work outside.

Make it ready for you in the field.

Afterwards, build your house. 

28 Don’t be a witness against your neighbor without cause.

Don’t deceive with your lips.

29 Don’t say, “I will do to him as he has done to me;

I will render to the man according to his work.” 

30 I went by the field of the sluggard,

By the vineyard of the man void of understanding; 

31 Behold, it was all grown over with thorns.

Its surface was covered with nettles,

And its stone wall was broken down. 

32 Then I saw, and considered well.

I saw, and received instruction: 

33 A little sleep, a little slumber,

A little folding of the hands to sleep; 

34 So shall your poverty come as a robber,

And your want as an armed man.

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 12:1 – 14:32

12:1 In that day you will say, “I will give thanks to you, the LORD; for though you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you comfort me. 

2 Behold, God is my salvation. I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD, the LORD, is my strength and song; and he has become my yeshu`ah.” 3 Therefore with joy you shall draw water out of the wells of yeshu`ah. 4 In that day you will say, “Give thanks to the LORD! Call on his name. Declare his doings among the peoples. Proclaim that his name is exalted! 5 Sing to the LORD, for he has done excellent things! Let this be known in all the eretz! 6 Cry aloud and shout, you inhabitant of Tziyon; for great in the midst of you is the Holy One of Yisra’el!”

13:1 The burden of Bavel, which Yesha`yahu the son of Amotz did see. 2 Set up an ensign on the bare mountain, lift up the voice to them, wave the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles. 3 I have commanded my consecrated ones, yes, I have called my mighty men for my anger, even my proudly exulting ones. 4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, as of a great people! the noise of a tumult of the kingdoms of the nations gathered together! the LORD of Hosts is mustering the host for the battle. 5 They come from a far country, from the uttermost part of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land. 6 Wail; for the day of the LORD is at hand; as destruction from Shaddai shall it come. 7 Therefore shall all hands be feeble, and every heart of man shall melt: 8 and they shall be dismayed; pangs and sorrows shall take hold [of them]; they shall be in pain as a woman in travail: they shall look in amazement one at another; their faces [shall be] faces of flame. 9 Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger; to make the land a desolation, and to destroy the sinners of it out of it. 10 For the stars of the sky and the constellations of it shall not give their light; the sun shall be darkened in its going forth, and the moon shall not cause its light to shine. 11 I will punish the world for [their] evil, and the wicked for their iniquity: and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. 12 I will make a man more rare than fine gold, even a man than the pure gold of Ofir. 13 Therefore I will make the heavens to tremble, and the eretz shall be shaken out of its place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger. 14 It shall happen, that as the chased roe, and as sheep that no man gathers, they shall turn every man to his own people, and shall flee every man to his own land. 15 Everyone who is found shall be thrust through; and everyone who is taken shall fall by the sword. 16 Their infants also shall be dashed in pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be rifled, and their wives ravished. 17 Behold, I will stir up the Madai against them, who shall not regard silver, and as for gold, they shall not delight in it. 18 [Their] bows shall dash the young men in pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children. 19 Bavel, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Kasdim’ pride, shall be as when God overthrew Sedom and `Amorah. 20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be lived in from generation to generation: neither shall the `Arivi pitch tent there; neither shall shepherds make their flocks to lie down there. 21 But wild animals of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and ostriches shall dwell there, and wild goats shall dance there. 22 Wolves shall cry in their castles, and jackals in the pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

14:1 For the LORD will have compassion on Ya`akov, and will yet choose Yisra’el, and set them in their own land: and the sojourner shall join himself with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Ya`akov.2 The peoples shall take them, and bring them to their place; and the house of Yisra’el shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and for handmaids: and they shall take them captive whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors. 3 It shall happen in the day that the LORD shall give you rest from your sorrow, and from your trouble, and from the hard service in which you were made to serve, 4 that you shall take up this parable against the king of Bavel, and say, How has the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! 5 The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers; 6 who struck the peoples in wrath with a continual stroke, who ruled the nations in anger, with a persecution that none restrained. 7 The whole eretz is at rest, [and] is quiet: they break forth into singing. 8 Yes, the fir trees rejoice at you, [and] the cedars of Levanon, [saying], Since you are laid low, no lumberjack is come up against us. 

9 She’ol from beneath is moved for you to meet you at your coming; it stirs up the dead for you, even all the chief ones of the eretz; it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. 10 All they shall answer and tell you, Are you also become weak as we? are you become like us? 11 Your pomp is brought down to She’ol, [and] the noise of your viols: the worm is spread under you, and worms cover you.12 How you are fallen from heaven, Heylel, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low! 13 You said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; and I will sit on the mountain of congregation, in the uttermost parts of the north; 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like Ha`Elyon. 15 Yet you shall be brought down to She’ol, to the uttermost parts of the pit. 16 Those who see you shall gaze at you, they shall consider you, [saying], “Is this the man who made the eretz to tremble, who shook kingdoms; 17 who made the world as a wilderness, and overthrew the cities of it; who didn’t let loose his prisoners to their home?” 18 All the kings of the nations, all of them, sleep in glory, everyone in his own house. 19 But you are cast forth away from your tomb like an abominable branch, clothed with the slain, who are thrust through with the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit; as a dead body trodden under foot. 20 You shall not be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed your land, you have killed your people; the seed of evil-doers shall not be named forever. 21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers, that they not rise up, and possess the eretz, and fill the surface of the world with cities. 22 I will rise up against them, says the LORD of Hosts, and cut off from Bavel name and remnant, and son and son’s son, says the LORD. 23 I will also make it a possession for the porcupine, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the broom of destruction, says the LORD of Hosts. 24 The LORD of Hosts has sworn, saying, Surely, as I have thought, so shall it happen; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand: 25 that I will break the Ashshur in my land, and on my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulder. 26 This is the purpose that is purposed on the whole eretz; and this is the hand that is stretched out on all the nations. 27 For the LORD of Hosts has purposed, and who shall annul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back? 28 In the year that king Achaz died was this burden. 29 Don’t rejoice, O Peleshet, all of you, because the rod that struck you is broken; for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth an adder, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent. 30 The firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety; and I will kill your root with famine, and your remnant shall be killed. 31 Howl, gate; cry, city; you are melted away, Peleshet, all of you; for there comes a smoke out of the north, and there is no straggler in his ranks. 32 What then shall one answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD has founded Tziyon, and in her shall the afflicted of his people take refuge.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 13:1 – 14

13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. “At the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word established.” 

2 I have said beforehand, and I do say beforehand, as when I was present the second time, so now, being absent, I write to those who have sinned before now, and to all the rest, that, if I come again, I will not spare;

3 seeing that you seek a proof of Messiah that speaks in me; who toward you is not weak, but is powerful in you. 

4 For he was crucified through weakness, yet he lives through the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we will live with him through the power of God toward you. 

5 Test your own selves, whether you are in the faith. Test your own selves. Or don’t you know as to your own selves, that Yeshua the Messiah is in you? Unless indeed you are disqualified. 

6 But I hope that you will know that we aren’t disqualified. 

7 Now I pray to God that you do no evil; not that we may appear approved, but that you may do that which is honorable, though we are as reprobate. 

8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 

9 For we rejoice when we are weak and you are strong. And this we also pray for, even your perfecting. 

10 For this cause I write these things while absent, that I may not deal sharply when present, according to the authority which the Lord gave me for building up, and not for tearing down. 

11 Finally, brothers, rejoice. Be perfected, be comforted, be of the same mind, live in shalom, and the God of love and shalom will be with you. 

12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. 

13 All the holy ones greet you. 

14 The grace of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the love of God, and the communion of the Ruach HaKodesh, be with you all. Amein.

JUNE 23

PSALMS: 23, 53, 83, 113, 143

PROVERBS: 23

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 10:1 – 11:16

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 12:11 – 21

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: ISAIAH 10:1 – 11:16

11:1 Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, and to the writers who write perverseness; 2 to turn aside the needy from justice, and to rob the poor of my people of their right, that widows may be their spoil, and that they may make the fatherless their prey! 3 What will you do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will you flee for help? and where will you leave your glory? 4 They shall only bow down under the prisoners, and shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. 5 Ho Ashshur, the rod of my anger, the staff in whose hand is my indignation! 6 I will send him against a profane nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. 7 However he doesn’t mean so, neither does his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy, and to cut off not a few nations. 8 For he says, Aren’t my princes all of them kings? 9 Isn’t Kalno as Karkemish? Isn’t Hamat as Arpad? Isn’t Shomron as Dammesek? 10 As my hand has found the kingdoms of the idols, whose engraved images did excel them of Yerushalayim and of Shomron; 11 shall I not, as I have done to Shomron and her idols, so do to Yerushalayim and her idols? 12 Therefore it shall happen that, when the Lord has performed his whole work on Mount Tziyon and on Yerushalayim, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Ashshur, and the glory of his high looks. 13 For he has said, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I have understanding: and I have removed the bounds of the peoples, and have robbed their treasures, and like a valiant man I have brought down those who sit [on thrones]: 14 and my hand has found as a nest the riches of the peoples; and as one gathers eggs that are forsaken, have I gathered all the eretz: and there was none that moved the wing, or that opened the mouth, or chirped. 15 Shall the ax boast itself against him who hews therewith? Shall the saw magnify itself against him who wields it? as if a rod should wield those who lift it up, [or] as if a staff should lift up [him who is] not wood. 16 Therefore will the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory there shall be kindled a burning like the burning of fire. 17 The light of Yisra’el will be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame; and it will burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day. 18 He will consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and it shall be as when a standard-bearer faints. 19 The remnant of the trees of his forest shall be few, so that a child may write them. 20 It shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Yisra’el, and those who are escaped of the house of Ya`akov, shall no more again lean on him who struck them, but shall lean on the LORD, the Holy One of Yisra’el, in truth. 21 A remnant shall return, [even] the remnant of Ya`akov, to the mighty God. 22 For though your people, Yisra’el, be as the sand of the sea, [only] a remnant of them shall return: a destruction [is] determined, overflowing with righteousness. 23 For a full end, and that determined, will the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, make in the midst of all the eretz. 24 Therefore thus says the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, my people who dwell in Tziyon, don’t be afraid of the Ashshur, though he strike you with the rod, and lift up his staff against you, after the manner of Mitzrayim. 25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation [against you] shall be accomplished, and my anger [shall be directed] to his destruction. 26 The LORD of Hosts will stir up against him a scourge, as in the slaughter of Midyan at the rock of `Orev: and his rod will be over the sea, and he will lift it up after the manner of Mitzrayim. 27 It shall happen in that day, that his burden shall depart from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed by reason of fatness. 28 He is come to `Ayat, he is passed through Migron; at Mikhmash he lays up his baggage; 29 they are gone over the pass; they have taken up their lodging at Geva; Ramah trembles; Gevah of Sha’ul is fled. 30 Cry aloud with your voice, daughter of Gallim! listen, Layshah! You poor `Anatot! 31 Madmenah is a fugitive; the inhabitants of Gevim flee for safety. 32 This very day shall he halt at Nov: he shakes his hand at the mountain of the daughter of Tziyon, the hill of Yerushalayim. 

33 Behold, the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, will lop the boughs with terror: and the high of stature shall be hewn down, and the lofty shall be brought low. 34 He will cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Levanon shall fall by a mighty one.

12:1 There shall come forth a netzer out of the stock of Yishai, and a branch out of his roots shall bear fruit. 2 The Spirit of the LORD shall rest on him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. 3 His delight shall be in the fear of the LORD; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither decide after the hearing of his ears; 4 but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and decide with equity for the humble of the eretz; and he shall strike the eretz with the rod of his mouth; and with the breath of his lips shall he kill the wicked. 5 Righteousness shall be the belt of his waist, and faithfulness the belt of his loins. 6 The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them. 7 The cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8 The sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder’s den. 9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the eretz shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. 10 It shall happen in that day, that the root of Yishai, who stands for an ensign of the peoples, to him shall the nations seek; and his resting-place shall be glorious. 11 It shall happen in that day, that the Lord will set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, who shall remain, from Ashshur, and from Mitzrayim, and from Patros, and from Kush, and from `Elam, and from Shin`ar, and from Hamat, and from the islands of the sea. 12 He will set up an ensign for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Yisra’el, and gather together the dispersed of Yehudah from the four corners of the eretz. 13 The envy also of Efrayim shall depart, and those who vex Yehudah shall be cut off: Efrayim shall not envy Yehudah, and Yehudah shall not vex Efrayim. 14 They shall fly down on the shoulder of the Pelishtim on the west; together shall they despoil the children of the east: they shall put forth their hand on Edom and Mo’av; and the children of `Ammon shall obey them. 15 The LORD will utterly destroy the tongue of the Mitzrian sea; and with his scorching wind will he wave his hand over the River, and will strike it into seven streams, and cause men to march over in sandals. 16 There shall be a highway for the remnant of his people, who shall remain, from Ashshur; like as there was for Yisra’el in the day that he came up out of the land of Mitzrayim.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 12:11 – 21

12:11 I have become foolish in boasting. You compelled me, for I ought to have been commended by you, for in nothing was I behind the very best apostles, though I am nothing. 

12 Truly the signs of an apostle were worked among you in all patience, in signs and wonders and mighty works. 

13 For what is there in which you were made inferior to the rest of the assemblies, unless it is that I myself was not a burden to you? Forgive me this wrong. 

14 Behold, this is the third time I am ready to come to you, and I will not be a burden to you; for I seek not your possessions, but you. For the children ought not to save up for the parents, but the parents for the children. 

15 I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls. If I love you more abundantly, am I loved the less? 

16 But be it so, I did not myself burden you. But, being crafty, I caught you with deception. 

17 Did I take advantage of you by anyone of them whom I have sent to you?

18 I exhorted Titus, and I sent the brother with him. Did Titus take any advantage of you? Didn’t we walk in the same spirit? Didn’t we walk in the same steps? 

19 Again, do you think that we are excusing ourselves to you? In the sight of God we speak in Messiah. But all things, beloved, are for your edifying. 

20 For I am afraid that by any means, when I come, I might find you not the way I want to, and that I might be found by you as you don’t desire; that by any means there would be strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, factions, slander, whisperings, proud thoughts, riots; 

21 that again when I come my God would humble me before you, and I would mourn for many of those who have sinned before now, and not repented of the uncleanness and sexual immorality and lustfulness which they committed.

PSALMS: 22, 52, 82, 112, 142

PROVERBS: 22

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 8:1 – 9:21

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 12:1 – 10

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: ISAIAH 8:1 – 9:21

8:1 The LORD said to me, Take a great tablet, and write on it with the pen of a man, For Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz; 2 and I will take to me faithful witnesses to record, Uriyah the Kohen, and Zekharyah the son of Yeverekhyahu. 3 I went to the prophetess; and she conceived, and bore a son. Then said the LORD to me, Call his name Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz. 4 For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My father, and, My mother, the riches of Dammesek and the spoil of Shomron shall be carried away before the king of Ashshur. 5 The LORD spoke to me yet again, saying, 6 Because this people have refused the waters of Shiloach that go softly, and rejoice in Retzin and Remalyahu’s son; 7 now therefore, behold, the Lord brings up on them the waters of the River, strong and many, [even] the king of Ashshur and all his glory: and it shall come up over all its channels, and go over all its banks; 8 and it shall sweep onward into Yehudah; it shall overflow and pass through; it shall reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of its wings shall fill the breadth of your land, Immanu’el. 9 Make an uproar, O you peoples, and be broken in pieces! And give ear, all you of far countries: gird yourselves, and be broken in pieces! Gird yourselves, and be broken in pieces! 10 Take counsel together, and it shall be brought to nothing; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us. 11 For the LORD spoke thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me not to walk in the way of this people, saying, 12 Don’t you say, “A conspiracy!” concerning all whereof this people shall say, “A conspiracy!” neither fear their fear, nor be in dread [of it]. 13 The LORD of hosts, him shall you sanctify; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14 He shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offense to both the houses of Yisra’el, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Yerushalayim. 15 Many shall stumble thereon, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken. 16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my talmidim. 17 I will wait for the LORD, who hides his face from the house of Ya`akov, and I will look for him. 18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are for signs and for wonders in Yisra’el from the LORD of Hosts, who dwells in Mount Tziyon. 19 When they shall tell you, “Consult with those who have familiar spirits and with the wizards, who chirp and who mutter:” shouldn’t a people consult with their God? on behalf of the living [should they consult] with the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony! if they don’t speak according to this word, surely there is no morning for them. 21 They shall pass through it, sore distressed and hungry; and it shall happen that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse by their king and by their God, and turn their faces upward: 22 and they shall look to the eretz, and see, distress and darkness, the gloom of anguish; and into thick darkness [they shall be] driven away.

9:1 But there shall be no gloom to her who was in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zevulun and the land of Naftali; but in the latter time has he made it glorious, by the way of the sea, beyond the Yarden, Galil of the nations. 2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light: those who lived in the land of the shadow of death, on them has the light shined. 3You have multiplied the nation, you have increased their joy: they joy before you according to the joy in harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. 4 For the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, you have broken as in the day of Midyan. 5 For all the armor of the armed man in the tumult, and the garments rolled in blood, shall be for burning, for fuel of fire. 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be on his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Shalom. 7 Of the increase of his government and of shalom there shall be no end, on the throne of David, and on his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of Hosts will perform this. 8 The Lord sent a word into Ya`akov, and it has lighted on Yisra’el. 9 All the people shall know, [even] Efrayim and the inhabitant of Shomron, who say in pride and in arrogance of heart, 10 The bricks are fallen, but we will build with hewn stone; the sycamores are cut down, but we will put cedars in their place. 11 Therefore the LORD will set up on high against him the adversaries of Retzin, and will stir up his enemies, 12 the Aram before, and the Pelishtim behind; and they shall devour Yisra’el with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. 13 Yet the people have not turned to him who struck them, neither have they sought the LORD of Hosts. 14 Therefore the LORD will cut off from Yisra’el head and tail, palm-branch and rush, in one day. 15 The elder and the honorable man, he is the head; and the prophet who teaches lies, he is the tail. 16 For those who lead this people cause them to err; and those who are led of them are destroyed. 17 Therefore the Lord will not rejoice over their young men, neither will he have compassion on their fatherless and widows; for everyone is profane and an evil-doer, and every mouth speaks folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. 18 For wickedness burns as the fire; it devours the briers and thorns; yes, it kindles in the thickets of the forest, and they roll upward in a column of smoke.19 Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land burnt up; and the people are as the fuel of fire: no man spares his brother. 20 One shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm: 21 Menashsheh, Efrayim; and Efrayim, Menashsheh; and they together shall be against Yehudah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 12:1 – 10

12:1 It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast. For I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. 

2 I know a man in Messiah, fourteen years ago (whether in the body, I don’t know, or whether out of the body, I don’t know; God knows), such a one caught up into the third heaven. 

3 I know such a man (whether in the body, or outside of the body, I don’t know; God knows), 

4 how he was caught up into Paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. 

5 On behalf of such a one I will boast, but on my own behalf I will not boast, except in my weaknesses. 

6 For if I would desire to boast, I will not be foolish; for I will speak the truth. But I forbear, so that no man may account of me above that which he sees in me, or hears from me. 

7 By reason of the exceeding greatness of the revelations, that I should not be exalted excessively, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Hasatan to buffet me, that I should not be exalted excessively. 

8 Concerning this thing, I begged the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 

9 He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Messiah may rest on me. 

10 Therefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in injuries, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Messiah’s sake. For when I am weak, then am I strong.

PSALMS: 21, 51, 81, 111, 141

PROVERBS: 21

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 6:1 – 7:25

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORITHIANS 11:16 – 33

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: ISAIAH 6:1 – 7:25

6-1 In the year that king `Uzziyah died I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple. 2 Above him stood the serafim: each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he did fly. 3 One cried to another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of Hosts: the whole eretz is full of his glory. 4 The foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of Hosts. 6 Then flew one of the serafim to me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7 and he touched my mouth with it, and said, Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin forgiven. 8 I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said, Here am I; send me. 9 He said, “Go, and tell this people, ‘You hear indeed, but don’t understand; and you see indeed, but don’t perceive.’ 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn again, and be healed.” 11 Then I said, “Lord, how long?” He answered, “Until cities are waste without inhabitant, and houses without man, and the land becomes utterly waste, 12 and the LORD has removed men far away, and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land. 13 If there are yet a tenth in it, it also shall in turn be eaten up: as a terebinth, and as an oak, whose stock remains, when they are felled; so the holy seed is the stock of it.”

7:1 It happened in the days of Achaz the son of Yotam, the son of `Uzziyah, king of Yehudah, that Retzin the king of Aram, and Pekach the son of Remalyahu, king of Yisra’el, went up to Yerushalayim to war against it, but could not prevail against it. 2 It was told the house of David, saying, “Aram is allied with Efrayim.” His heart trembled, and the heart of his people, as the trees of the forest tremble with the wind. 3 Then the LORD said to Yesha`yahu, “Go forth now to meet Achaz, you, and She’ar-Yashuv your son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool, in the highway of the fuller’s field; 4 and say to him, ‘Take heed, and be quiet; don’t be afraid, neither let your heart be faint, because of these two tails of smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Retzin and Aram, and of the son of Remalyahu. 5 Because Aram, Efrayim, and the son of Remalyahu, have purposed evil against you, saying, 6 “Let us go up against Yehudah, and vex it, and let us make a breach therein for us, and set up a king in the midst of it, even the son of Tav’el;” 7 thus says the Lord GOD, “It shall not stand, neither shall it happen.” 8 For the head of Aram is Dammesek, and the head of Dammesek is Retzin; and within sixty-five years shall Efrayim be broken in pieces, so that it shall not be a people: 9 and the head of Efrayim is Shomron, and the head of Shomron is Remalyahu’s son. If you will not believe, surely you shall not be established.'” 10 The LORD spoke again to Achaz, saying, 11 Ask a sign of the LORD your God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above. 12 But Achaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD. 13 He said, “Listen now, house of David: Is it a small thing for you to weary men, that you will weary my God also? 14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: behold, an almah shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanu’el. 15 Butter and honey shall he eat, when he knows to refuse the evil, and choose the good. 16 For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land whose two kings you abhor shall be forsaken. 17 The LORD will bring on you, and on your people, and on your father’s house, days that have not come, from the day that Efrayim departed from Yehudah [even] the king of Ashshur. 18 It shall happen in that day, that the LORD will hiss for the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Mitzrayim, and for the bee that is in the land of Ashshur. 19 They shall come, and shall rest all of them in the desolate valleys, and in the clefts of the rocks, and on all thorn-hedges, and on all pastures. 20 In that day will the Lord shave with a razor that is hired in the parts beyond the River, [even] with the king of Ashshur, the head and the hair of the feet; and it shall also consume the beard. 21 It shall happen in that day, that a man shall keep alive a young cow, and two sheep; 22 and it shall happen, that because of the abundance of milk which they shall give he shall eat butter: for butter and honey shall everyone eat that is left in the midst of the land. 23 It shall happen in that day, that every place, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand silver shekels, shall be for briers and thorns. 24 With arrows and with bow shall one come there, because all the land shall be briers and thorns. 25 All the hills that were dug with the mattock, you shall not come there for fear of briers and thorns; but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen, and for the treading of sheep.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORITHIANS 11:16 – 33

11:16 I say again, let no one think me foolish. But if so, yet receive me as foolish, that I also may boast a little. 

17 That which I speak, I don’t speak after the Lord, but as in foolishness, in this confidence of boasting. 

18 Seeing that many boast after the flesh, I will also boast.

19 For you bear with the foolish gladly, being wise. 

20 For you bear with a man, if he brings you into bondage, if he devours you, if he takes you captive, if he exalts himself, if he strikes you on the face.

21 I speak by way of disparagement, as though we had been weak. Yet however any is bold (I speak in foolishness), I am bold also. 

22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Yisra’elites? So am I. Are they the seed of Avraham? So am I. 

23 Are they servants of Messiah? (I speak as one beside himself) I am more so; in labors more abundantly, in prisons more abundantly, in stripes above measure, in deaths often. 

24 Five times from the Yehudim I received forty stripes minus one. 

25 Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I suffered shipwreck. I have been a night and a day in the deep. 

26 I have been in travels often, perils of rivers, perils of robbers, perils from my countrymen, perils from the Goyim, perils in the city, perils in the wilderness, perils in the sea, perils among false brothers; 

27 in labor and travail, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, and in cold and nakedness. 

28 Besides those things that are outside, there is that which presses on me daily, anxiety for all the assemblies. 

29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is caused to stumble, and I don’t burn? 

30 If I must boast, I will boast of the things that concern my weakness. 

31 The God and Father of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, he who is blessed forevermore, knows that I don’t lie. 

32 In Dammesek the governor under Aretas the king guarded the city of the Damascenes desiring to arrest me. 

33 Through a window I was let down in a basket by the wall, and escaped his hands.

JUNE 20

PSALMS: 20, 50, 80, 110, 140

PROVERBS: 20

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 3:1 – 5:30

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 11:1 – 15

PSALMS: 20

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

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

2 Send you help from the sanctuary,

Grant you support from Tziyon, 

3 Remember all your offerings,

And accept your burnt-sacrifice. Selah. 

4 May He grant you your heart’s desire,

And fulfill all your counsel. 

5 We will triumph in your yeshu`ah.

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

The LORD fulfill all your petitions. 

6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed.

He will answer him from his holy heaven,

With the saving strength of his right hand. 

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses,

But we trust the name of the LORD our God. 

8 They are bowed down and fallen,

But we rise up, and stand upright.

9 Save, LORD;

Let the King answer us when we call!

PSALMS: 50

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

And calls the eretz from sunrise to sunset. 

2 Out of Tziyon, the perfection of beauty,

God shines forth. 

3 Our God comes, and does not keep silent.

A fire devours before him.

It is very tempestuous around him. 

4 He calls to the heavens above,

To the eretz, that he may judge his people: 

5 “Gather my holy ones together to me,

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

6 The heavens shall declare his righteousness,

For God himself is judge.

Selah. 

7 “Hear, my people, and I will speak;

Yisra’el, and I will testify against you.

I am God, your God. 

8 I don’t rebuke you for your sacrifices.

Your burnt offerings are continually before me. 

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

Nor male goats from your pens. 

10 For every animal of the forest is mine,

And the cattle on a thousand hills. 

11 I know all the birds of the mountains.

The wild animals of the field are mine. 

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

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

13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls,

Or drink the blood of goats? 

14 Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving.

Pay your vows to Ha`Elyon.

15 Call on me in the day of trouble.

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

16 But to the wicked God says,

“What right do you have to declare my statutes,

That you have taken my covenant on your lips,

17  Seeing you hate instruction,

And throw my words behind you?

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

And have participated with adulterers. 

19 “You give your mouth to evil.

You harnesses your tongue for deceit. 

20 You sit and speak against your brother.

You slander your own mother’s son. 

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

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

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

22 “Now consider this, you who forget God,

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

23 Whoever offers the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifies me,

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

PSALMS: 80

1 Hear us, Shepherd of Yisra’el,

You who lead Yosef like a flock,

You who sit above the Keruvim, shine forth. 

2 Before Efrayim and Binyamin and Menashsheh,

stir up your might,

Come to save us. 

3 Turn us again, God.

Cause your face to shine,

And we will be saved.

4 LORD God Tzva’ot,

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

5 You have fed them with the bread of tears,

And given them tears to drink in large measure. 

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

Our enemies laugh among themselves. 

7 Turn us again,

God Tzva’ot.

Cause your face to shine,

And we will be saved. 

8 You brought a vine out of Mitzrayim.

You drove out the nations, and planted it. 

9 You cleared the ground for it.

It took deep root, and filled the land. 

10 The mountains were covered with its shadow.

Its boughs were like God’s cedars. 

11 It sent out its branches to the sea,

Its shoots to the River. 

12 Why have you broken down its walls,

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

13 The boar out of the wood ravages it.

The wild animals of the field feed on it. 

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

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

15 The stock which your right hand planted,

The branch that you made strong for yourself. 

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

They perish at your rebuke. 

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

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

18 So we will not turn away from you.

Revive us, and we will call on your name. 

19 Turn us again, LORD God Tzva’ot.

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

PSALMS: 110

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

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

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

Rule in the midst of your enemies. 

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

In holy array.

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

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

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

5 The Lord is at your right hand.

He will crush kings in the day of his wrath.

6 He will judge among the nations.

He will heap up dead bodies.

He will crush the ruler of the whole eretz. 

7 He will drink of the brook in the way;

Therefore will he lift up his head.

PSALMS: 140

1 Deliver me, LORD, from the evil man.

Preserve me from the violent man; 

2 Those who devise mischief in their hearts.

They continually gather themselves together for war. 

3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent.

Viper’s poison is under their lips.

Selah. 

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

Preserve me from the violent men:

Who have determined to trip my feet. 

5 The proud have hidden a snare for me,

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

They have set traps for me.

Selah. 

6 I said to the LORD,

“You are my God.

” Listen to the cry of my petitions, LORD. 

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

You have covered my head in the day of battle. 

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

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

9 As for the head of those who surround me,

Let the mischief of their own lips cover them. 

10 Let burning coals fall on them.

Let them be thrown into the fire,

Into miry pits, from where they never rise. 

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

Evil will hunt the violent man to overthrow him. 

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

And justice for the needy. 

13 Surely the righteous will give thanks to your name.

The upright will dwell in your presence.

PROVERBS: 20

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

Whoever is let astray by them is not wise. 

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

He who provokes him to anger forfeits his own life. 

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

But every fool will be quarreling.

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

Therefore he shall beg in harvest, and have nothing. 

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

But a man of understanding will draw it out.

6 Many men claim to be men of unfailing love,

But who can find a faithful man? 

7 A righteous man who walks in his integrity,

Blessed are his children after him. 

8 A king who sits on the throne of judgment

Scatters away all evil with his eyes. 

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

I am clean and without sin?” 

10 Differing weights and differing measures,

Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD. 

11 Even a child makes himself known by his doings,

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

12 The hearing ear, and the seeing eye,

The LORD has made even both of them. 

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

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

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

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

15 There is gold and abundance of rubies;

But the lips of knowledge are a rare jewel. 

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

And hold him in pledge for a wayward woman. 

17 Fraudulent food is sweet to a man,

But afterwards his mouth is filled with gravel. 

18 Plans are established by advice;

By wise guidance you wage war! 

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

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

20 Whoever curses his father or his mother,

His lamp shall be put out in blackness of darkness. 

21 An inheritance quickly gained at the beginning,

Won’t be blessed in the end. 

22 Don’t say,

“I will pay back evil.”

Wait for the LORD, and he will save you. 

23 The LORD detests differing weights,

And dishonest scales are not pleasing. 

24 A man’s steps are from the LORD;

How then can man understand his way? 

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

And later reconsider his vows. 

26 A wise king winnows out the wicked,

And drives the threshing wheel over them. 

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

Searching all his innermost parts.

28 Love and faithfulness keep the king safe.

His throne is sustained by love. 

29 The glory of young men is their strength.

The splendor of old men is their gray hair. 

30 Wounding blows cleanse away evil,

And beatings purge the innermost parts.

OLD TESTAMENT: ISAIAH 3:1 – 5:30

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

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

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

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 11:1 – 15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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