JUNE 21

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.

JUNE 8

PSALMS: 8, 38, 68, 98, 128

PROVERBS: 8

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 28:1 – 30:31

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 2:12 – 17

PSALMS: 8

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

Who has set your glory above the heavens! 

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

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

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

The moon and the stars, which you have ordained; 

4 What is man, that you think of him?

The son of man, that you care for him? 

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

And crowned him with glory and honor. 

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

You have put all things under his feet: 

7 All sheep and oxen,

Yes, and the animals of the field, 

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

And whatever passes through the paths of the seas. 

9 LORD, our Lord,

How majestic is your name in all the eretz!

PSALMS: 38

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

Neither chasten me in your hot displeasure. 

2 For your arrows have pierced me,

Your hand presses hard on me. 

3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of your indignation,

Neither is there any health in my bones because of my sin. 

4 For my iniquities have gone over my head.

As a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me. 

5 My wounds are loathsome and corrupt,

Because of my foolishness. 

6 I am pained and bowed down greatly.

I go mourning all day long. 

7 For my loins are filled with burning.

There is no soundness in my flesh. 

8 I am faint and severely bruised.

I have groaned by reason of the anguish of my heart. 

9 Lord, all my desire is before you.

My groaning is not hidden from you. 

10 My heart throbs. My strength fails me.

As for the light of my eyes, it also is gone from me. 

11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my plague.

My kinsmen stand afar off. 

12 They also who seek after my life lay snares.

Those who seek my hurt speak mischievous things,

And meditate deceits all day long. 

13 But I, as a deaf man, don’t hear.

I am as a mute man who doesn’t open his mouth. 

14 Yes, I am as a man who doesn’t hear,

In whose mouth are no reproofs. 

15 For in you, LORD, do I hope.

You will answer, Lord my God. 

16 For I said, “Don’t let them gloat over me,

Or exalt themselves over me when my foot slips.” 

17  For I am ready to fall.

My pain is continually before me. 

18 For I will declare my iniquity.

I will be sorry for my sin. 

19 But my enemies are vigorous and many.

Those who hate me without reason are numerous. 

20 They who also render evil for good are adversaries to me,

Because I follow what is good. 

21 Don’t forsake me, LORD.

My God, don’t be far from me.

22 Hurry to help me,

Lord, my salvation.

PSALMS: 68

1 Let God arise!

Let his enemies be scattered!

Let them who hate him also flee before him. 

2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away.

As wax melts before the fire,

So let the wicked perish at the presence of God. 

3 But let the righteous be glad.

Let them rejoice before God.

Yes, let them rejoice with gladness. 

4 Sing to God! Sing praises to his name!

Extol him who rides on the clouds — To the LORD, his name!

Rejoice before him. 

5 A father of the fatherless, and a defender of the widows,

Is God in his holy habitation.

6 God sets the lonely in families.

He brings out the prisoners with singing,

But the rebellious dwell in a sun-scorched land. 

7 God, when you went forth before your people,

When you marched through the wilderness…

Selah. 

8 The eretz trembled.

The sky also poured down rain at the presence of the God of Sinai —

At the presence of God, the God of Yisra’el. 

9 You, God, sent a plentiful rain.

You confirmed your inheritance, when it was weary. 

10 Your congregation lived therein.

You, God, prepared your goodness for the poor. 

11 The Lord announced the word.

The ones who proclaim it are a great company. 

12 “Kings of armies flee! They flee!”

She who waits at home divides the spoil, 

13 While you sleep among the campfires,

The wings of a dove sheathed with silver,

Her feathers with shining gold. 

14 When Shaddai scattered kings in her,

It snowed on Tzalmon. 

15 The mountains of Bashan are majestic mountains.

The mountains of Bashan are rugged. 

16 Why do you look in envy, you rugged mountains,

At the mountain where God chooses to reign?

Yes, the LORD will dwell there forever. 

17 The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands.

The Lord is among them, from Sinai, into the sanctuary. 

18 You have ascended on high.

You have led away captives.

You have received gifts among men,

Yes, among the rebellious also,

that the LORD God might dwell there. 

19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burdens,

Even the God who is our salvation. Selah. 

20 God is to us a God of deliverance.

To the LORD, the Lord,

belongs escape from death. 

21 But God will strike through the head of his enemies,

The hairy scalp of such a one as still continues in his guiltiness. 

22 The Lord said, “I will bring you again from Bashan,

I will bring you again from the depths of the sea; 

23 That you may crush them, dipping your foot in blood,

That the tongues of your dogs may have their portion from your enemies.” 

24 They have seen your goings, God,

Even the goings of my God, my King, into the sanctuary. 

25 The singers went before, the minstrels followed after,

In the midst of the ladies playing with timbrels, 

26“Bless God in the congregations,

Even the Lord in the assembly of Yisra’el!” 

27 There is little Binyamin, their ruler,

The princes of Yehudah, their council,

The princes of Zevulun, and the princes of Naftali. 

28 Your God has commanded your strength.

Strengthen, God, that which you have done for us. 

29 Because of your temple at Yerushalayim,

Kings shall bring presents to you. 

30 Rebuke the wild animal of the reeds,

The multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the peoples.

Being humbled, may it bring bars of silver.

Scatter the nations that delight in war. 

31 Princes shall come out of Mitzrayim.

Kush shall hurry to stretch out her hands to God. 

32 Sing to God, you kingdoms of the eretz!

Sing praises to the Lord!

Selah. 

33 To him who rides on the heaven of heavens, which are of old;

Behold, he utters his voice, a mighty voice. 

34 Ascribe strength to God!

His excellency is over Yisra’el,

His strength is in the skies. 

35 You are awesome, God, in your sanctuaries.

The God of Yisra’el gives strength and power to his people.

Praise be to God!

PSALMS: 98

1 Sing to the LORD a new song,

For he has done marvelous things!

His right hand, and his holy arm,

have worked salvation for him. 

2 The LORD has made known his yeshu`ah.

He has openly shown his righteousness in the sight of the nations. 

3 He has remembered his loving kindness

and his faithfulness toward the house of Yisra’el.

All the ends of the eretz have seen the yeshu`ah of our God. 

4 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the eretz!

Burst out and sing for joy, yes, sing praises! 

5 Sing praises to the LORD with the harp,

With the harp and the voice of melody. 

6 With trumpets and sound of the ram’s horn.

Make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD. 

7  Let the sea roar with its fullness;

The world, and those who dwell therein. 

8 Let the rivers clap their hands.

Let the mountains sing for joy together. 

9 Let them sing before the LORD,

For he comes to judge the eretz.

He will judge the world with righteousness,

And the peoples with equity.

PSALMS: 128

1 Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD,

Who walks in his ways. 

2 For you will eat the labor of your hands.

You will be happy, and it will be well with you. 

3 Your wife will be as a fruitful vine,

In the innermost parts of your house;

Your children like olive plants, Around your table. 

4 Behold, thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD. 

5 May the LORD bless you out of Tziyon,

And may you see the good of Yerushalayim all the days of your life. 

6 Yes, may you see your children’s children.

Shalom be upon Yisra’el.

PROVERBS: 8

1 Doesn’t wisdom cry out?

Doesn’t understanding raise her voice?

2 On the top of high places by the way,

Where the paths meet, she stands. 

3 Beside the gates, at the entry of the city,

At the entry doors, she cries aloud: 

4 “To you men, I call!

I send my voice to the sons of mankind. 

5 You simple, understand prudence.

You fools, be of an understanding heart. 

6 Hear, for I will speak excellent things.

The opening of my lips is for right things. 

7 For my mouth speaks truth.

Wickedness is an abomination to my lips. 

8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness.

There is nothing crooked or perverse in them. 

9 They are all plain to him who understands,

Right to those who find knowledge. 

10 Receive my instruction rather than silver;

Knowledge rather than choice gold. 

11 For wisdom is better than rubies.

All the things that may be desired can’t be compared to it. 

12 “I, wisdom, have made prudence my dwelling.

Find out knowledge and discretion. 

13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil.

I hate pride, arrogance, the evil way, and the perverse mouth. 

14 Counsel and sound knowledge are mine.

I have understanding and power. 

15 By me kings reign,

And princes decree justice. 

16 By me princes rule; Nobles,

and all the righteous rulers of the eretz. 

17 I love those who love me.

Those who seek me diligently will find me. 

18 With me are riches, honor,

Enduring wealth, and prosperity. 

19 My fruit is better than gold, yes, than fine gold;

My yield than choice silver. 

20 I walk in the way of righteousness,

In the midst of the paths of justice; 

21 That I may give wealth to those who love me.

I fill their treasuries.

22 “The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his work,

Before his deeds of old. 

23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning,

Before the eretz existed. 

24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth,
When there were no springs abounding with water. 

25 Before the mountains were settled in place,

Before the hills, I was brought forth; 

26 While as yet he had not made the eretz, nor the fields,

Nor the beginning of the dust of the world. 

27  When he established the heavens, I was there;

When he set a circle on the surface of the deep, 

28 When he established the clouds above,

When the springs of the deep became strong, 

29 When he gave to the sea its boundary,

That the waters should not violate his mitzvah,

When he marked out the foundations of the eretz; 

30 Then I was the craftsman by his side.

I was a delight day by day,

Always rejoicing before him, 

31 Rejoicing in his whole world.

My delight was with the sons of men. 

32 “Now therefore, my sons, listen to me,

For blessed are those who keep my ways. 

33 Hear instruction, and be wise, Don’t refuse it. 

34 Blessed is the man who hears me,

Watching daily at my gates,

Waiting at my door posts. 

35 For whoever finds me, finds life,

And will obtain favor from the LORD. 

36 But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul.

All those who hate me love death.”

OLD TESTAMENT: JOB 28:1 – 30:31

28:1 “Surely there is a mine for silver, And a place for gold which they refine. 2 Iron is taken out of the eretz, And copper is smelted out of the ore. 3 Man sets an end to darkness, And searches out, to the furthest bound, The stones of obscurity and of thick darkness. 4 He breaks open a shaft away from where people live. They are forgotten by the foot. They hang far from men, they swing back and forth. 5 As for the eretz, out of it comes bread; Underneath it is turned up as it were by fire. 6 Sapphires come from its rocks. It has dust of gold. 7 That path no bird of prey knows, Neither has the falcon’s eye seen it. 8 The proud animals have not trodden it, Nor has the fierce lion passed by there. 9 He puts forth his hand on the flinty rock, And he overturns the mountains by the roots. 10 He cuts out channels among the rocks. His eye sees every precious thing. 11 He binds the streams that they don’t trickle; The thing that is hidden he brings forth to light. 12 “But where shall wisdom be found? Where is the place of understanding? 13 Man doesn’t know its price; Neither is it found in the land of the living. 14 The deep says, ‘It isn’t in me.’ The sea says, ‘It isn’t with me.’ 15 It can’t be gotten for gold, Neither shall silver be weighed for its price. 16 It can’t be valued with the gold of Ofir, With the precious shoham, or the sappir. 17 Gold and zekukeet can’t equal it, Neither shall it be exchanged for jewels of fine gold. 18 No mention shall be made of ra`mah or of gabeesh: Yes, the price of wisdom is above rubies. 19 The pitdah of Kush shall not equal it, Neither shall it be valued with pure gold. 20 Whence then comes wisdom? Where is the place of understanding? 21 Seeing it is hidden from the eyes of all living, And kept close from the birds of the sky. 22 Destruction and Death say, ‘We have heard a rumor of it with our ears.’ 23 “God understands its way, And he knows its place. 24 For he looks to the ends of the eretz, And sees under the whole sky. 25 He establishes the force of the wind; Yes, he measures out the waters by measure. 26 When he made a decree for the rain, And a way for the lightning of the thunder; 27 Then did he see it, and declare it. He established it, yes, and searched it out. 28 To man he said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom. To depart from evil is understanding.'”

29:1 Iyov again took up his parable, and said, 2 “Oh that I were as in the months of old, As in the days when God watched over me; 3 When his lamp shone on my head, And by his light I walked through darkness; 4 As I was in the ripeness of my days, When the friendship of God was in my tent; 5 When Shaddai was yet with me, And my children were around me; 6 When my steps were washed with butter, And the rock poured out streams of oil for me! 7 When I went forth to the city gate, When I prepared my seat in the street, 8 The young men saw me and hid themselves, The aged rose up and stood; 9 The princes refrained from talking, And laid their hand on their mouth; 10 The voice of the nobles was hushed, And their tongue stuck to the roof of their mouth. 11 For when the ear heard me, then it blessed me; And when the eye saw me, it commended me: 12 Because I delivered the poor who cried, And the fatherless also, who had none to help him. 13 The blessing of him who was ready to perish came on me, And I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy. 14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me. My justice was as a robe and a diadem. 15 I was eyes to the blind, And feet to the lame. 16 I was a father to the needy. The cause of him who I didn’t know, I searched out. 17 I broke the jaws of the unrighteous, And plucked the prey out of his teeth. 18 Then I said, ‘I shall die in my own house, I shall number my days as the sand. 19 My root is spread out to the waters, The dew lies all night on my branch; 20 My glory is fresh in me, My bow is renewed in my hand.’ 21 “Men listened to me, waited, And kept silence for my counsel. 22 After my words they didn’t speak again; My speech fell on them. 23 They waited for me as for the rain. Their mouths drank as with the spring rain. 24 I smiled on them when they had no confidence. They didn’t reject the light of my face. 25 I chose out their way, and sat as chief. I lived as a king in the army, As one who comforts the mourners.

30:1 “But now those who are younger than I, have me in derision, Whose fathers I would have disdained to put with my sheep dogs. 2 Of what use is the strength of their hands to me, Men in whom ripe age has perished? 3 They are gaunt from lack and famine. They gnaw the dry ground, in the gloom of waste and desolation. 4 They pluck mallukh by the bushes. The roots of the broom are their food. 5 They are driven forth from the midst of men; They cry after them as after a thief; 6 So that they dwell in frightful valleys, And in holes of the eretz and of the rocks. 7 Among the bushes they bray; And under the nettles they are gathered together. 8 They are children of fools, yes, children of base men. They were flogged out of the land. 9 “Now I have become their song. Yes, I am a byword to them. 10 They abhor me, they stand aloof from me, And don’t hesitate to spit in my face. 11 For he has loosed his cord, and afflicted me; And they have thrown off restraint before me. 12 On my right hand rise the rabble. They thrust aside my feet, They cast up against me their ways of destruction. 13 They mar my path, They set forward my calamity, Without anyone’s help. 14 As through a wide breach they come, In the midst of the ruin they roll themselves in. 15 Terrors are turned on me. They chase my honor as the wind. My welfare has passed away as a cloud. 16 “Now my soul is poured out within me. Days of affliction have taken hold on me. 17 In the night season my bones are pierced in me, And the pains that gnaw me take no rest. 18 By great force is my garment disfigured. It binds me about as the collar of my coat. 19 He has cast me into the mire. I have become like dust and ashes. 20 I cry to you, and you do not answer me. I stand up, and you gaze at me. 21 You have turned to be cruel to me. With the might of your hand you persecute me. 22 You lift me up to the wind, and drive me with it. You dissolve me in the storm. 23 For I know that you will bring me to death, To the house appointed for all living. 24 “However doesn’t one stretch out a hand in his fall? Or in his calamity therefore cry for help? 25 Didn’t I weep for him who was in trouble? Wasn’t my soul grieved for the needy? 26 When I looked for good, then evil came; When I waited for light, there came darkness. 27 My heart is troubled, and doesn’t rest. Days of affliction have come on me. 28 I go mourning without the sun. I stand up in the assembly, and cry for help. 29 I am a brother to jackals, And a companion to ostriches. 30 My skin grows black and peels from me. My bones are burned with heat. 31 Therefore is my harp turned to mourning, And my pipe into the voice of those who weep.

NEW TESTAMENT: 2 CORINTHIANS 2:12 – 17

2:12 Now when I came to Troas for the Good News of Messiah, and when a door was opened to me in the Lord, 

13 I had no relief for my spirit, because I didn’t find Titus, my brother, but taking my leave of them, I went forth into Macedonia. 

14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Messiah, and reveals through us the sweet aroma of his knowledge in every place. 

15 For we are a sweet aroma of Messiah to God, in those who are saved, and in those who perish; 

16 to the one a stench from death to death; to the other a sweet aroma from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 

17 For we are not as so many, peddling the word of God. But as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God, we speak in Messiah.

MAY 29

PSALMS: 29, 59, 89, 119, 149

PROVERBS: 29

OLD TESTAMENT: ESTHER 1:1 – 3:15

NEW TESTAMENT: CORINTHIANS 11:17 – 34

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: ESTHER 1:1 – 3:15

1:1 Now it happened in the days of Achashverosh (this is Achashverosh who reigned from Hoddu even to Kush, over one hundred twenty-seven provinces), 2 that in those days, when the king Achashverosh sat on the throne of his kingdom, which was in Shushan the palace, 3 in the third year of his reign, he made a feast to all his princes and his servants; the power of Paras and Madai, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him; 4 when he shown the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honor of his excellent majesty many days, even one hundred eighty days. 5 When these days were fulfilled, the king made a feast to all the people who were present in Shushan the palace, both great and small, seven days, in the court of the garden of the king’s palace. 6 [There were hangings of] white [cloth], [of] green, and [of] blue, fastened with cords of fine linen and purple to silver rings and pillars of marble: the couches were of gold and silver, on a pavement of red, and white, and yellow, and black marble. 7  They gave them drink in vessels of gold (the vessels being diverse one from another), and royal wine in abundance, according to the bounty of the king. 8 The drinking was according to the law; none could compel: for so the king had appointed to all the officers of his house, that they should do according to every man’s pleasure. 9 Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to king Achashverosh. 10 On the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Bizeta, Harvona, Bigta, and Avagta, Zetar, and Karkas, the seven chamberlains who ministered in the presence of Achashverosh the king, 11 to bring Vashti the queen before the king with the crown royal, to show the peoples and the princes her beauty; for she was beautiful to look on. 12 But the queen Vashti refused to come at the king’s mitzvah by the chamberlains: therefore was the king very angry, and his anger burned in him. 13 Then the king said to the wise men, who knew the times, (for so was the king’s manner toward all who knew law and judgment; 14 and the next to him were Karshena, Shetar Shibah |Shiv`ah, Admata, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena, and Memukhan, the seven princes of Paras and Madai, who saw the king’s face, and sat first in the kingdom), 15 What shall we do to the queen Vashti according to law, because she has not done the bidding of the king Achashverosh by the chamberlains? 16 Memukhan answered before the king and the princes, Vashti the queen has not done wrong to the king only, but also to all the princes, and to all the peoples who are in all the provinces of the king Achashverosh. 17  For this deed of the queen will come abroad to all women, to make their husbands contemptible in their eyes, when it shall be reported, The king Achashverosh commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she didn’t come. 18 This day will the princesses of Paras and Madai who have heard of the deed of the queen say [the like] to all the king’s princes. So [will there arise] much contempt and wrath. 19 If it please the king, let there go forth a royal mitzvah from him, and let it be written among the laws of the Paras and the Madai, that it not be altered, that Vashti come no more before king Achashverosh; and let the king give her royal estate to another who is better than she. 20 When the king’s decree which he shall make shall be published throughout all his kingdom (for it is great), all the wives will give to their husbands honor, both to great and small. 21 The saying pleased the king and the princes; and the king did according to the word of Memukhan: 22 for he sent letters into all the king’s provinces, into every province according to the writing of it, and to every people after their language, that every man should bear rule in his own house, and should speak according to the language of his people.

2:1 After these things, when the wrath of king Achashverosh was pacified, he remembered Vashti, and what she had done, and what was decreed against her. 2 Then said the king’s servants who ministered to him, Let there be beautiful young virgins sought for the king: 3 and let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom, that they may gather together all the beautiful young virgins to Shushan the palace, to the house of the women, to the custody of Hegai the king’s chamberlain, keeper of the women; and let their things for purification be given them; 4 and let the maiden who pleases the king be queen instead of Vashti. The thing pleased the king; and he did so. 5 There was a certain Yehudi in Shushan the palace, whose name was Mordekhai, the son of Ya’ir, the son of Shim`i, the son of Kish, a Binyamini, 6 who had been carried away from Yerushalayim with the captives who had been carried away with Yekhonyah king of Yehudah, whom Nevukhadnetztzar the king of Bavel had carried away. 7  He brought up Hadassah, who is, Ester, his uncle’s daughter: for she had neither father nor mother, and the maiden was fair and beautiful; and when her father and mother were dead, Mordekhai took her for his own daughter. 8 So it happened, when the king’s mitzvah and his decree was heard, and when many maidens were gathered together to Shushan the palace, to the custody of Hegai, that Ester was taken into the king’s house, to the custody of Hegai, keeper of the women. 9 The maiden pleased him, and she obtained kindness of him; and he speedily gave her things for her purification, with her portions, and the seven maidens who were meet to be given her out of the king’s house: and he removed her and her maidens to the best place of the house of the women. 10 Ester had not made known her people nor her relatives; for Mordekhai had charged her that she should not make it known. 11 Mordekhai walked every day before the court of the women’s house, to know how Ester did, and what would become of her. 12 Now when the turn of every maiden was come to go in to king Achashverosh, after it had been done to her as prescribed for the women twelve months (for so were the days of their purification accomplished, [to wit], six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odors and with the things for the purifying of the women), 13 then in this wise came the maiden to the king: whatever she desired was given her to go with her out of the house of the women to the king’s house. 14 In the evening she went, and on the next day she returned into the second house of the women, to the custody of Sha`ashgaz, the king’s chamberlain, who kept the concubines: she came in to the king no more, except the king delighted in her, and she were called by name. 15 Now when the turn of Ester, the daughter of Avichayil the uncle of Mordekhai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in to the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king’s chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. Ester obtained favor in the sight of all those who looked at her. 16 So Ester was taken to king Achashverosh into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tevet, in the seventh year of his reign. 17  The king loved Ester above all the women, and she obtained favor and kindness in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown on her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti. 18 Then the king made a great feast to all his princes and his servants, even Ester’s feast; and he made a release to the provinces, and gave gifts, according to the bounty of the king. 19 When the virgins were gathered together the second time, then Mordekhai was sitting in the king’s gate. 20 Ester had not yet made known her relatives nor her people; as Mordekhai had charged her: for Ester did the mitzvah of Mordekhai, like as when she was brought up with him. 21 In those days, while Mordekhai was sitting in the king’s gate, two of the king’s chamberlains, Bigthan and Teresh, of those who kept the threshold, were angry, and sought to lay hands on the king Achashverosh. 22 The thing became known to Mordekhai, who shown it to Ester the queen; and Ester told the king [of it] in Mordekhai’s name. 23 When inquisition was made of the matter, and it was found to be so, they were both hanged on a tree: and it was written in the book of the chronicles before the king.

3:1 After these things did king Achashverosh promote Haman the son of Hammedata the Agagite, and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes who were with him. 2 All the king’s servants, who were in the king’s gate, bowed down, and did reverence to Haman; for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordekhai didn’t bow down, nor did him reverence. 3 Then the king’s servants, who were in the king’s gate, said to Mordekhai, Why disobey you the king’s mitzvah? 4 Now it came to pass, when they spoke daily to him, and he didn’t listen to them, that they told Haman, to see whether Mordekhai’s matters would stand: for he had told those who he was a Yehudi. 5 When Haman saw that Mordekhai didn’t bow down, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath. 6 But he thought scorn to lay hands on Mordekhai alone; for they had made known to him the people of Mordekhai: therefore Haman sought to destroy all the Yehudim who were throughout the whole kingdom of Achashverosh, even the people of Mordekhai. 7 In the first month, which is the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Achashverosh, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, [to] the twelfth [month], which is the month Adar. 8 Haman said to king Achashverosh, There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the peoples in all the provinces of your kingdom; and their laws are diverse from [those of] every people; neither keep they the king’s laws: therefore it is not for the king’s profit to allow them. 9 If it please the king, let it be written that they be destroyed: and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those who have the charge of the [king’s] business, to bring it into the king’s treasuries. 10 The king took his ring from his hand, and gave it to Haman the son of Hammedata the Agagite, the Yehudim’ enemy. 11 The king said to Haman, The silver is given to you, the people also, to do with them as it seems good to you. 12 Then were the king’s Sofrim called in the first month, on the thirteenth day of it; and there was written according to all that Haman commanded to the king’s satraps, and to the governors who were over every province, and to the princes of every people, to every province according to the writing of it, and to every people after their language; in the name of king Achashverosh was it written, and it was sealed with the king’s ring. 13 Letters were sent by posts into all the king’s provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Yehudim, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even on the thirteenth [day] of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey. 14 A copy of the writing, that the decree should be given out in every province, was published to all the peoples, that they should be ready against that day. 15  The posts went forth in haste by the king’s mitzvah, and the decree was given out in Shushan the palace. The king and Haman sat down to drink; but the city of Shushan was perplexed.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 11:17 – 34

11:17 But in giving you this command, I don’t praise you, that you come together not for the better but for the worse. 

18 For first of all, when you come together in the assembly, I hear that divisions exist among you, and I partly believe it. 

19 For there also must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be revealed among you. 

20 When therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not possible to eat the Lord’s supper. 

21 For in your eating each one takes his own supper before others. One is hungry, and another is drunken. 

22 What, don’t you have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you despise God’s assembly, and put them to shame who don’t have? What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I don’t praise you. 

23 For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the Lord Yeshua on the night in which he was betrayed took bread. 

24 When he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “Take, eat. This is my body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of me.” 

25 In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me.” 

26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. 

27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks the Lord’s cup in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. 

29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn’t discern the Lord’s body. 

30 For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep. 

31 For if we discerned ourselves, we wouldn’t be judged. 

32 But when we are judged, we are punished by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world. 

33 Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait one for another. 

34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, that your coming together may not be to judgment. The rest I will set in order whenever I come.

MAY 24

PSALMS: 24, 54, 84, 114, 144

PROVERBS: 24

OLD TESTAMENT: NEHEMIAH 5:14 – 7:36a

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 8:1 – 13

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: NEHEMIAH 5:14 – 7:36a

5:14 Moreover from the time that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Yehudah, from the twentieth year even to the two and thirtieth year of Artachshasta the king, [that is], twelve years, I and my brothers have not eaten the bread of the governor. 15 But the former governors who were before me were chargeable to the people, and took of them bread and wine, besides forty shekels of silver; yes, even their servants bore rule over the people: but I didn’t do so, because of the fear of God. 16 Yes, also I continued in the work of this wall, neither bought we any land: and all my servants were gathered there to the work. 17 Moreover there were at my table, of the Yehudim and the rulers, one hundred fifty men, besides those who came to us from among the nations that were round about us. 18 Now that which was prepared for one day was one ox and six choice sheep; also fowls were prepared for me, and once in ten days store of all sorts of wine: yet for all this I didn’t demand the bread of the governor, because the bondage was heavy on this people. 19 Remember to me, my God, for good, all that I have done for this people.

6:1 Now it happened, when it was reported to Sanvallat and Toviyah, and to Geshem the `Arvian, and to the rest of our enemies, that I had built the wall, and that there was no breach left therein; (though even to that time I had not set up the doors in the gates;) 2 that Sanvallat and Geshem sent to me, saying, Come, let us meet together in [one of] the villages in the plain of Ono. But they thought to do me mischief. 3 I sent messengers to them, saying, I am doing a great work, so that I can’t come down: why should the work cease, while I leave it, and come down to you? 4 They sent to me four times after this sort; and I answered them after the same manner. 5 Then sent Sanvallat his servant to me in like manner the fifth time with an open letter in his hand, 6 in which was written, It is reported among the nations, and Gashmu says it, that you and the Yehudim think to rebel; for which cause you are building the wall: and you would be their king, according to these words. 7  You have also appointed prophets to preach of you at Yerushalayim, saying, There is a king in Yehudah: and now shall it be reported to the king according to these words. Come now therefore, and let us take counsel together. 8 Then I sent to him, saying, There are no such things done as you say, but you feign them out of your own heart. 9 For they all would have made us afraid, saying, Their hands shall be weakened from the work, that it not be done. But now, [God], strengthen you my hands. 10 I went to the house of Shemayah the son of Delayah the son of Mehetav’el, who was shut up; and he said, Let us meet together in the house of God, within the temple, and let us shut the doors of the temple: for they will come to kill you; yes, in the night will they come to kill you. 11 I said, Should such a man as I flee? and who is there that, being such as I, would go into the temple to save his life? I will not go in. 12 I discerned, and, behold, God had not sent him; but he pronounced this prophecy against me: and Toviyah and Sanvallat had hired him. 13 For this cause was he hired, that I should be afraid, and do so, and sin, and that they might have matter for an evil report, that they might reproach me. 14 Remember, my God, Toviyah and Sanvallat according to these their works, and also the prophetess No`adyah, and the rest of the prophets, that would have put me in fear. 15 So the wall was finished in the twenty-fifth [day] of [the month] Elul, in fifty-two days. 16 It happened, when all our enemies heard [of it], that all the nations that were about us feared, and were much cast down in their own eyes; for they perceived that this work was worked of our God. 

17  Moreover in those days the nobles of Yehudah sent many letters to Toviyah, and [the letters] of Toviyah came to them. 18 For there were many in Yehudah sworn to him, because he was the son-in-law of Shekhanyahu the son of Arach; and his son Yehochanan had taken the daughter of Meshullam the son of Berekhyah as wife. 19 Also they spoke of his good deeds before me, and reported my words to him. Toviyah sent letters to put me in fear.

7:1 Now it happened, when the wall was built, and I had set up the doors, and the porters and the singers and the Levites were appointed, 2 that I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananyah the governor of the castle, charge over Yerushalayim; for he was a faithful man, and feared God above many. 3 I said to them, Don’t let the gates of Yerushalayim be opened until the sun be hot; and while they stand [on guard], let them shut the doors, and bar you them: and appoint watches of the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, everyone in his watch, and everyone [to be] over against his house. 4 Now the city was wide and large; but the people were few therein, and the houses were not built. 5 My God put into my heart to gather together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. I found the book of the genealogy of those who came up at the first, and I found written therein: 6 These are the children of the province, who went up out of the captivity of those who had been carried away, whom Nevukhadnetztzar the king of Bavel had carried away, and who returned to Yerushalayim and to Yehudah, everyone to his city; 7 who came with Zerubbavel, Yeshua, Nechemyah, `Azaryah, Ra`amyah, Nachamani, Mordekhai, Bilshan, Misperet, Bigvai, Nechum, Ba`anah. The number of the men of the people of Yisra’el: 8 The children of Par`osh, two thousand one hundred seventy-two. 9 The children of Shefatyah, three hundred seventy-two. 10 The children of Arach, six hundred fifty-two. 11 The children of Pachat-Mo’av, of the children of Yeshua and Yo’av, two thousand eight hundred [and] eighteen. 12 The children of `Elam, one thousand two hundred fifty-four. 13 The children of Zattu, eight hundred forty-five. 14 The children of Zakkai, seven hundred sixty. 15 The children of Binnui, six hundred forty-eight. 16 The children of Bevai, six hundred twenty-eight. 17  The children of Azgad, two thousand three hundred twenty-two. 18 The children of Adonikam, six hundred sixty-seven. 19 The children of Bigvai, two thousand sixty-seven. 20 The children of `Adin, six hundred fifty-five. 21  The children of Ater, of Hizkiyahu, ninety-eight. 22 The children of Hashum, three hundred Twenty-eight. 23 The children of Betzai, three hundred twenty-four. 24 The children of Harif, one hundred twelve. 25 The children of Giv`on, ninety-five. 26 The men of Beit-Lechem and Netofah, one hundred eighty-eight. 27 The men of `Anatot, one hundred twenty-eight. 28 The men of Beit-`Azmavet, forty-two. 29 The men of Kiryat-Ye`arim, Kefirah, and Be’erot, seven hundred forty-three. 30 The men of Ramah and Geva, six hundred twenty-one. 31 The men of Mikhmas, one hundred and twenty-two. 32 The men of Beit-El and `Ai, a hundred twenty-three. 33 The men of the other Nevo, fifty-two. 34 The children of the other `Elam, one thousand two hundred fifty-four. 35 The children of Harim, three hundred twenty. 36 The children of Yericho, three hundred forty-five.

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 CORINTHIANS 8:1 – 13

8:1 Now concerning things sacrificed to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. 

2 But if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he doesn’t yet know as he ought to know. 

3 But if anyone loves God, the same is known by him. 

4 Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that no idol is anything in the world, and that there is no other God but one. 

5 For though there are things that are called “gods,” whether in the heavens or on eretz; as there are many “gods” and many “lords;” 

6 yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we to him; and one Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, through whom are all things, and we through him. 

7 However, that knowledge isn’t in all men. But some, being used until now to the idol, eat as of a thing sacrificed to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled. 

8 But food will not commend us to God. For neither, if we don’t eat, are we the worse; nor, if we eat, are we the better. 

9 But be careful that by any means this liberty of yours doesn’t become a stumbling block to the weak. 

10 For if a man sees you who have knowledge sitting in an idol’s temple, won’t his conscience, if he is weak, be emboldened to eat things sacrificed to idols? 

11 And through your knowledge, he who is weak perishes, the brother for whose sake Messiah died. 

12 Thus, sinning against the brothers, and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Messiah. 

13 Therefore, if food causes my brother to stumble, I will eat no meat forevermore, that I don’t cause my brother to stumble.
