JULY 30

PSALMS: 30, 60, 90, 120, 150

PROVERBS: 30

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 33:1 – 34:22

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 4:1 – 16

PSALMS: 30

1 I will extol you, LORD, for you have raised me up,

And have not made my foes to rejoice over me. 

2 LORD my God, I cried to you, and you have healed me. 

3 LORD, you have brought up my soul from She’ol.

You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. 

4 Sing praise to the LORD, you holy ones of his.

Give thanks to his holy name. 

5 For his anger is but for a moment;

His favor is for a lifetime.

Weeping may stay for the night,

But joy comes in the morning. 

6 As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.” 

7 You, LORD, when you favored me, made my mountain to stand strong.

But when you hid your face, I was troubled. 

8 I cried to you, LORD.

To the LORD I made supplication: 

9 “What profit is there in my destruction, if I go down to the pit?

Shall the dust praise you?

Shall it declare your truth? 

10 Hear, LORD, and have mercy on me. LORD, be my helper.” 

11 You have turned my mourning into dancing for me.

You have removed my sackcloth, and clothed me with gladness, 

12 To the end that my heart may sing praise to you, and not be silent.

LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever.

PSALMS: 60

1 God, you have rejected us.

You have broken us down.

You have been angry.

Restore us to you, again. 

2 You have made the land tremble.

You have torn it.

Mend its fractures,

For it quakes. 

3 You have shown your people hard things.

You have made us drink the wine that makes us stagger. 

4 You have given a banner to those who fear you,

That it may be displayed because of the truth.

Selah.

5 So that your beloved may be delivered,

Save with your right hand, and answer us. 

6 God has spoken from his sanctuary:

“I will triumph.

I will divide Shekhem,

And measure out the valley of Sukkot.

7 Gil`ad is mine, and Menashsheh is mine.

Efrayim also is the defense of my head.

Yehudah is my scepter. 

8 Mo’av is my wash basin.

I will throw my shoe on Edom.

I shout in triumph over Peleshet.” 

9 Who will bring me into the strong city?

Who has led me to Edom? 

10 Haven’t you, God, rejected us?

You don’t go out with our armies, God. 

11 Give us help against the adversary,

For the help of man is vain. 

12 Through God we shall do valiantly,

For it is he who will tread down our adversaries.

PSALMS: 90

1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place In all generations. 

2 Before the mountains were brought forth,

Or ever you had formed the eretz and the world,

Even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God. 

3 You turn man to destruction, saying,

“Return, you children of men.” 

4 For a thousand years in your sight

Are but as yesterday when it is past,

As a watch in the night. 

5 You sweep them away as they sleep.

In the morning they sprout like new grass. 

6 In the morning it sprouts and springs up.

By evening, it is withered and dry.

7 For we are consumed in your anger.

We are troubled in your wrath. 

8 You have set our iniquities before you,

Our secret sins in the light of your presence. 

9 For all our days have passed away in your wrath.

We bring our years to an end as a sigh. 

10 The days of our years are seventy,

Or even by reason of strength eighty years;

Yet their pride is but labor and sorrow,

For it passes quickly, and we fly away. 

11 Who knows the power of your anger,

Your wrath according to the fear that is due to you? 

12 So teach us to number our days,

That we may gain a heart of wisdom. 

13 Relent, LORD! How long?

Have compassion on your servants. 

14 Satisfy us in the morning with your loving kindness,

That we may rejoice and be glad all our days. 

15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,

For as many years as we have seen evil. 

16 Let your work appear to your servants;

Your glory to their children. 

17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be on us;

Establish the work of our hands for us;

Yes, establish the work of our hands.

PSALMS: 120

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: 150

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: 30

1 The words of Agur the son of Yakeh, the oracle:

The man says to ‘Iti’el, To ‘Iti’el and Ucal: 

2 “Surely I am the most ignorant man,

And don’t have a man’s understanding. 

3 I have not learned wisdom,

Neither do I have the knowledge of the Holy One. 

4 Who has ascended up into heaven, and descended?

Who has gathered the wind in his fists?

Who has bound the waters in his garment?

Who has established all the ends of the eretz? ‘

What is his name, and what is his son’s name, if you know? 

5 “Every word of God is flawless.

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

6 Don’t you add to his words,

Lest he reprove you, and you be found a liar. 

7 “Two things I have asked of you;

Don’t deny me before I die: 

8 Remove far from me falsehood and lies.

Give me neither poverty nor riches.

Feed me with the food that is needful for me; 

9 Lest I be full, deny you, and say,

‘Who is the LORD?’

Or lest I be poor, and steal,

And so dishonor the name of my God. 

10 “Don’t slander a servant to his master,

Lest he curse you, and you be held guilty. 

11 There is a generation that curses their father,

And doesn’t bless their mother. 

12 There is a generation that is pure in their own eyes,

Yet are not washed from their filthiness. 

13 There is a generation, oh how lofty are their eyes!

Their eyelids are lifted up. 

14 There is a generation whose teeth are like swords,

And their jaws like knives,

To devour the poor from the eretz,

and the needy from among men. 

15 “The leach has two daughters:

‘Give, give.’

“There are three things that are never satisfied;

Four that don’t say, ‘Enough:’ 

16 She’ol, the barren womb;

The eretz that is not satisfied with water;

The fire that doesn’t say, ‘Enough;’ 

17 And the eye that mocks at his father,

And scorns obedience to his mother:

The ravens of the valley shall pick it out,

The young eagles shall eat it. 

18 “There are three things which are too amazing for me,

Four which I don’t understand: 

19 The way of an eagle in the air;

The way of a serpent on a rock;

The way of a ship in the midst of the sea;

And the way of a man with a maiden. 

20 So is the way of an adulterous woman:

She eats and wipes her mouth,

And says, ‘I have done nothing wrong.’ 

21 “For three things the eretz tremble,

And under four, it can’t bear up: 

22 For a servant when he is king;

A fool when he is filled with food; 

23 For an unloved woman when she is married;

And a handmaid who is heir to her mistress.

24 “There are four things which are little on the eretz,

But they are exceeding wise: 

25 The ants are not a strong people,

Yet they provide their food in the summer; 

26 The conies are but a feeble folk,

Yet make they their houses in the rocks; 

27 The locusts have no king,

Yet they advance in ranks; 

28 You can catch a lizard with your hands,

Yet she is in kings’ palaces. 

29 “There are three things which are stately in their march,

Four which are stately in going: 

30 The lion, which is mightiest among animals,

And doesn’t turn away for any; 

31 The greyhound, the male goat also;

And the king against whom there is no rising up. 

32 “If you have done foolishly in lifting up yourself,

Or if you have thought evil,

Put your hand over your mouth. 

33 For as the churning of milk brings forth butter,

And the wringing of the nose brings forth blood;

So the forcing of wrath brings forth strife.”

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 33:1 – 34:22

33:1 While Jeremiah was still confined in the courtyard of the guard, the word of the LORD came to him a second time: 2 “This is what the LORD says, he who made the earth, the LORD who formed it and established it—the LORD is his name: 3 ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ 4 For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says about the houses in this city and the royal palaces of Judah that have been torn down to be used against the siege ramps and the sword 5 in the fight with the Babylonians : ‘They will be filled with the dead bodies of the people I will slay in my anger and wrath. I will hide my face from this city because of all its wickedness. 6 “ ‘Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security. 7 I will bring Judah and Israel back from captivity and will rebuild them as they were before. 8 I will cleanse them from all the sin they have committed against me and will forgive all their sins of rebellion against me. 9 Then this city will bring me renown, joy, praise and honor before all nations on earth that hear of all the good things I do for it; and they will be in awe and will tremble at the abundant prosperity and peace I provide for it.’ 10 “This is what the LORD says: ‘You say about this place, “It is a desolate waste, without people or animals.” Yet in the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem that are deserted, inhabited by neither people nor animals, there will be heard once more 11 the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of bride and bridegroom, and the voices of those who bring thank offerings to the house of the LORD, saying, “Give thanks to the LORD Almighty, for the LORD is good; his love endures forever.” For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were before,’ says the LORD. 12 “This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘In this place, desolate and without people or animals—in all its towns there will again be pastures for shepherds to rest their flocks. 13 In the towns of the hill country, of the western foothills and of the Negev, in the territory of Benjamin, in the villages around Jerusalem and in the towns of Judah, flocks will again pass under the hand of the one who counts them,’ says the LORD. 14 “ ‘The days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will fulfill the good promise I made to the people of Israel and Judah. 15 “ ‘In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line; he will do what is just and right in the land. 16 In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. This is the name by which it will be called: The LORD Our Righteous Savior.’ 17 For this is what the LORD says: ‘David will never fail to have a man to sit on the throne of Israel, 18 nor will the Levitical priests ever fail to have a man to stand before me continually to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings and to present sacrifices.’ ” 19 The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: 20 “This is what the LORD says: ‘If you can break my covenant with the day and my covenant with the night, so that day and night no longer come at their appointed time, 21 then my covenant with David my servant—and my covenant with the Levites who are priests ministering before me—can be broken and David will no longer have a descendant to reign on his throne. 22 I will make the descendants of David my servant and the Levites who minister before me as countless as the stars in the sky and as measureless as the sand on the seashore.’ ” 23 The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: 24 “Have you not noticed that these people are saying, ‘The LORD has rejected the two kingdoms he chose’? So they despise my people and no longer regard them as a nation. 25 This is what the LORD says: ‘If I have not made my covenant with day and night and established the laws of heaven and earth, 26 then I will reject the descendants of Jacob and David my servant and will not choose one of his sons to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For I will restore their fortunes and have compassion on them.’ ”

34:1 While Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and all his army and all the kingdoms and peoples in the empire he ruled were fighting against Jerusalem and all its surrounding towns, this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD: 2 “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Go to Zedekiah king of Judah and tell him, ‘This is what the LORD says: I am about to give this city into the hands of the king of Babylon, and he will burn it down. 3 You will not escape from his grasp but will surely be captured and given into his hands. You will see the king of Babylon with your own eyes, and he will speak with you face to face. And you will go to Babylon. 4 “ ‘Yet hear the LORD’s promise to you, Zedekiah king of Judah. This is what the LORD says concerning you: You will not die by the sword; 5 you will die peacefully. As people made a funeral fire in honor of your predecessors, the kings who ruled before you, so they will make a fire in your honor and lament, “Alas, master!” I myself make this promise, declares the LORD.’ ” 6 Then Jeremiah the prophet told all this to Zedekiah king of Judah, in Jerusalem, 7 while the army of the king of Babylon was fighting against Jerusalem and the other cities of Judah that were still holding out—Lachish and Azekah. These were the only fortified cities left in Judah. 8 The word came to Jeremiah from the LORD after King Zedekiah had made a covenant with all the people in Jerusalem to proclaim freedom for the slaves. 9 Everyone was to free their Hebrew slaves, both male and female; no one was to hold a fellow Hebrew in bondage. 10 So all the officials and people who entered into this covenant agreed that they would free their male and female slaves and no longer hold them in bondage. They agreed, and set them free. 11 But afterward they changed their minds and took back the slaves they had freed and enslaved them again. 12 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: 13 “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I made a covenant with your ancestors when I brought them out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. I said, 14 ‘Every seventh year each of you must free any fellow Hebrews who have sold themselves to you. After they have served you six years, you must let them go free.’ Your ancestors, however, did not listen to me or pay attention to me. 15 Recently you repented and did what is right in my sight: Each of you proclaimed freedom to your own people. You even made a covenant before me in the house that bears my Name. 16 But now you have turned around and profaned my name; each of you has taken back the male and female slaves you had set free to go where they wished. You have forced them to become your slaves again. 17 “Therefore this is what the LORD says: You have not obeyed me; you have not proclaimed freedom to your own people. So I now proclaim ‘freedom’ for you, declares the LORD—‘freedom’ to fall by the sword, plague and famine. I will make you abhorrent to all the kingdoms of the earth. 18 Those who have violated my covenant and have not fulfilled the terms of the covenant they made before me, I will treat like the calf they cut in two and then walked between its pieces. 19 The leaders of Judah and Jerusalem, the court officials, the priests and all the people of the land who walked between the pieces of the calf, 20 I will deliver into the hands of their enemies who want to kill them. Their dead bodies will become food for the birds and the wild animals. 21 “I will deliver Zedekiah king of Judah and his officials into the hands of their enemies who want to kill them, to the army of the king of Babylon, which has withdrawn from you. 22 I am going to give the order, declares the LORD, and I will bring them back to this city. They will fight against it, take it and burn it down. And I will lay waste the towns of Judah so no one can live there.”

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 TIMOTHY 4:1 – 16

4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 

2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 

3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. 

4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 

5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer. 

6 If you point these things out to the brothers and sisters, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished on the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed. 

7  Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. 

8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.

9 This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. 

10 That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe. 

11 Command and teach these things. 

12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 

14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you. 

15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. 

16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.

PSALMS: 23, 53, 83, 113, 143

PROVERBS: 23

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 19:1 – 21:14

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 THESSALONIANS 5:4 – 28

PSALMS: 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd:

I shall lack nothing. 

2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures.

He leads me beside still waters. 

3 He restores my soul.

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

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

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

Your rod and your staff, they comfort me 

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

You have anointed my head with oil.

My cup runs over. 

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

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

PSALMS: 53

1 The fool has said in his heart,

“There is no God.”

They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity.

There is no one who does good. 

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

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

3 Every one of them has gone back.

They have become filthy together.

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

4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge,

Who eat up my people as they eat bread,

And don’t call on God? 

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

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

You have put them to shame,

Because God has rejected them.

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

When God brings back the captivity of his people,

Then shall Ya`akov rejoice.

Yisra’el shall be glad.

PSALMS: 83

1 God, don’t keep silent.

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

2 For, behold, your enemies are stirred up.

Those who hate you have lifted up their heads. 

3 They conspire with cunning against your people.

They plot against your cherished ones. 

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

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

5 For they have conspired together with one mind.

They form an alliance against you. 

6 The tents of Edom and the Yishme`elim;

Mo’av, and the Hagrim; 

7 Geval, `Ammon, and `Amalek;

Peleshet with the inhabitants of Tzor; 

8 Ashshur also is joined with them.

They have helped the children of Lot.

Selah. 

9 Do to them as you did to Midyan,

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

10 Who perished at `En-Dor,

Who became as dung for the eretz. 

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

Yes, all their princes like Zevach and Tzalmunnah; 

12 Who said, “Let us take possession

Of God’s pasturelands.” 

13 My God, make them like tumbleweed;

Like chaff before the wind. 

14 As the fire that burns the forest,

As the flame that sets the mountains on fire,

15 So pursue them with your tempest,

Terrify them with your storm.

16 Fill their faces with confusion,

That they may seek your name, LORD. 

17 Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever.

Yes, let them be confounded and perish; 

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

Are Ha`Elyon over all the eretz.

PSALMS: 113

1 Praise the LORD!

Praise, you servants of the LORD,

Praise the name of the LORD. 

2 Blessed be the name of the LORD,

From this time forth and forevermore. 

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

The LORD’s name is to be praised. 

4 The LORD is high above all nations,

His glory above the heavens. 

5 Who is like the LORD, our God,

Who has his seat on high, 

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

7 He raises up the poor out of the dust.

Lifts up the needy from the ash heap; 

8 That he may set him with princes,

Even with the princes of his people. 

9 He settles the barren woman in her home,

As a joyful mother of children.

Praise the LORD!

PSALMS: 143

1 Hear my prayer, LORD.

Listen to my petitions.

In your faithfulness and righteousness, relieve me. 

2 Don’t enter into judgment with your servant,

For in your sight no man living is righteous. 

3 For the enemy pursues my soul.

He has struck my life down to the ground.

He has made me live in dark places,

as those who have been long dead. 

4 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me.

My heart within me is desolate. 

5 I remember the days of old.

I meditate on all your doings.

I contemplate the work of your hands. 

6 I spread forth my hands to you.

My soul thirsts for you, like a parched land.

Selah. 

7 Hurry to answer me, LORD.

My spirit fails.

Don’t hide your face from me,

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

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

For I trust in you.

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

For I lift up my soul to you. 

9 Deliver me, LORD, from my enemies.

I flee to you to hide me. 

10 Teach me to do your will,

For you are my God.

Your Spirit is good.

Lead me in the land of uprightness. 

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

In your righteousness, bring my soul out of trouble. 

12 In your loving kindness, cut off my enemies,

And destroy all those who afflict my soul,

For I am your servant.

PROVERBS: 23

1 When you sit to eat with a ruler,

Consider diligently what is before you; 

2 Put a knife to your throat,

If you are a man given to appetite.

3 Don’t be desirous of his dainties,

Seeing they are deceitful food.

4 Don’t weary yourself to be rich.

In your wisdom, show restraint 

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

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

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

And don’t crave his delicacies: 

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

“Eat and drink!” he says to you,

But his heart is not with you. 

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

And lose your good words. 

9 Don’t speak in the ears of a fool,

For he will despise the wisdom of your words. 

10 Don’t move the ancient boundary stone.

Don’t encroach on the fields of the fatherless: 

11 For their Defender is strong.

He will plead their case against you. 

12 Apply your heart to instruction,

And your ears to the words of knowledge. 

13 Don’t withhold correction from a child.

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

14 Punish him with the rod,

And save his soul from She’ol 

15 My son, if your heart is wise,

Then my heart will be glad, even mine: 

16 Yes, my heart will rejoice,

When your lips speak what is right. 

17 Don’t let your heart envy sinners;

But rather fear the LORD all the day long. 

18 Indeed surely there is a future hope,

And your hope will not be cut off. 

19 Listen, my son, and be wise,

And keep your heart on the right path 

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

Or those who gorge themselves on meat: 

21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall become poor;

And drowsiness clothes them in rags 

22 Listen to your father who gave you life,

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

23 Buy the truth, and don’t sell it:

Get wisdom, discipline, and understanding. 

24 The father of the righteous has great joy.

Whoever fathers a wise child delights in him. 

25 Let your father and your mother be glad!

Let her who bore you rejoice! 

26 My son, give me your heart;

And let your eyes keep in my ways. 

27 For a prostitute is a deep pit;

And a wayward wife is a narrow well. 

28 Yes, she lies in wait like a robber,

And increases the unfaithful among men. 

29 Who has woe?

Who has sorrow?

Who has strife?

Who has complaints?

Who has needless bruises?

Who has bloodshot eyes?

30 Those who stay long at the wine;

Those who go to seek out mixed wine. 

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

When it sparkles in the cup,

When it goes down smoothly: 

32 At the last it bites like a snake,

And poisons like a viper. 

33 Your eyes will see strange things,

And your mind will imagine confusing things. 

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

Or as he who lies on top of the rigging: 

35 “They hit me, and I was not hurt;

They beat me, and I don’t feel it!

When will I wake up?

I can do it again.

I can find another.”

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 19:1 – 21:14

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

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

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

NEW TESTAMENT: 1 THESSALONIANS 5:4 – 28

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

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

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

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

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

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

10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 

11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Final Instructions

12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 

13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. 

14 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.

15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else. 

16 Rejoice always, 

17 pray continually, 

18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 

19 Do not quench the Spirit. 

20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt

21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 

22 reject every kind of evil. 

23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. 

25 Brothers and sisters, pray for us. 

26 Greet all God’s people with a holy kiss. 

27 I charge you before the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers and sisters. 

28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

PSALMS: 17, 47, 77, 107, 137

PROVERBS: 16

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 6:16 – 8:7

NEW TESTAMENT: COLOSSIANS 2:8 – 23

PSALMS: 17

1 Hear, LORD, my righteous plea;

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

2 Let my sentence come forth from your presence;

Let your eyes look on equity. 

3 You have proved my heart;

you have visited me in the night;

You have tried me, and found nothing;

I have resolved that my mouth shall not disobey. 

4 As for the works of men,

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

5 My steps have held fast to your paths,

My feet have not slipped. 

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

Turn your ear to me.

Hear my speech. 

7 Show your marvelous loving kindness,

You who save those who take refuge by

your right hand from their enemies. 

8 Keep me as the apple of your eye;

Hide me under the shadow of your wings, 

9 From the wicked who oppress me,

My deadly enemies, who compass me about. 

10 They close up their callous hearts.

With their mouth they speak proudly.

11 They have now surrounded us in our steps.

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

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

As it were a young lion lurking in secret places. 

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

Deliver my soul from the wicked by your sword; 

14 From men by your hand, LORD,

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

Whose belly you fill with your treasure:

They are satisfied with children,

Leave the rest of their substance to their babes. 

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

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

PSALMS: 47

1 Oh clap your hands, all you nations.

Shout to God with the voice of triumph! 

2 For the LORD Elyon is awesome.

He is a great King over all the eretz. 

3 He subdues nations under us,

And peoples under our feet. 

4 He chooses our inheritance for us,

The glory of Ya`akov whom he loved.

Selah. 

5 God has gone up with a shout,

The LORD with the sound of a shofar. 

6 Sing praise to God, sing praises.

Sing praises to our King, sing praises. 

7 For God is the King of all the eretz.

Sing praises with understanding. 

8 God reigns over the nations.

God sits on his holy throne. 

9 The princes of the peoples are gathered together,

The people of the God of Avraham.

For the shields of the eretz belong to God.

He is greatly exalted!

PSALMS: 77

1 My cry goes to God! Indeed,

I cry to God for help,

And for him to listen to me. 

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

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

My soul refused to be comforted. 

3 I remember God, and I groan.

I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed.

Selah. 

4 You hold my eyelids open.

I am so troubled that I can’t speak. 

5 I have considered the days of old,

The years of ancient times. 

6 I remember my song in the night.

I consider in my own heart;

My spirit diligently inquires: 

7 “Will the Lord reject us forever?

Will he be favorable no more? 

8 Has his loving kindness vanished forever?

Does his promise fail for generations? 

9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?

Has he, in anger, withheld his compassion?”

Selah. 

10Then I thought,

“I will appeal to this:

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

11 I will remember the LORD’s deeds;

For I will remember your wonders of old. 

12 I will also meditate on all your work,

And consider your doings. 

13 Your way, God, is in the sanctuary.

What god is great like God? 

14 You are the God who does wonders.

You have made your strength known among the peoples. 

15 You have redeemed your people with your arm,

The sons of Ya`akov and Yosef. Selah. 

16 The waters saw you, God.

The waters saw you, and they writhed.

The depths also convulsed.

17 The clouds poured out water.

The skies resounded with thunder.

Your arrows also flashed around. 

18 The voice of your thunder was in the whirlwind.

The lightnings lit up the world.

The eretz trembled and shook. 

19 Your way was through the sea;

Your paths through the great waters.

Your footsteps were not known. 

20 You led your people like a flock,

By the hand of Moshe and Aharon.

PSALMS: 107

1 Give thanks to the LORD,

For he is good,

For his loving kindness endures forever. 

2 Let the redeemed by the LORD say so,

Whom he has redeemed from the hand of the adversary, 

3 Gathered out of the lands,

From the east and from the west,

From the north and from the south. 

4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way.

They found no city to live in. 

5 Hungry and thirsty,

Their soul fainted in them. 

6 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,

And he delivered them out of their distresses, 

7 He led them also by a straight way,

That they might go to a city to live in. 

8 Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness,

For his wonderful works to the children of men! 

9 For he satisfies the longing soul.

He fills the hungry soul with good. 

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

Being bound in affliction and iron, 

11 Because they rebelled against the words of God,

And condemned the counsel of Ha`Elyon. 

12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labor.

They fell down, and there was none to help. 

13 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,

And he saved them out of their distresses. 

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

And broke their bonds in sunder. 

15 Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness,

For his wonderful works to the children of men! 

16 For he has broken the gates of brass,

And cut through bars of iron.

17  Fools are afflicted because of their disobedience,

And because of their iniquities. 

18 Their soul abhors all kinds of food.

They draw near to the gates of death. 

19 Then they cry to the LORD in their trouble,

He saves them out of their distresses. 

20 He sends his word, and heals them,

And delivers them from their graves. 

21 Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness,

For his wonderful works to the children of men! 

22 Let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving,

And declare his works with singing. 

23 Those who go down to the sea in ships,

Who do business in great waters; 

24 These see the LORD’s works,

And his wonders in the deep. 

25 For he commands, and raises the stormy wind,

Which lifts up its waves.

26 They mount up to the sky;

they go down again to the depths.

Their soul melts away because of trouble. 

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

And are at their wits’ end. 

28 Then they cry to the LORD in their trouble,

He brings them out of their distress. 

29 He makes the storm a calm,

So that its waves are still.

30 Then are they glad because it is calm,

So he brings them to their desired haven. 

31 Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness,

For his wonderful works to the children of men! 

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

And praise him in the seat of the Zakenim. 

33 He turns rivers into a desert,

Water springs into a thirsty ground, 

34 And a fruitful land into a salt waste,

For the wickedness of those who dwell in it. 

35 He turns a desert into a pool of water,

And a dry land into water springs. 

36 There he makes the hungry to live,

That they may prepare a city to live in, 

37  Sow fields, plant vineyards,

And reap the fruits of increase. 

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

He doesn’t allow their cattle to decrease. 

39 Again, they are diminished and bowed down

Through oppression, trouble, and sorrow. 

40 He pours contempt on princes,

And causes them to wander in a trackless waste. 

41 Yet he lifts the needy out of their affliction,

And increases their families like a flock.

42 The upright will see it, and be glad.

All the wicked will shut their mouths. 

43 Whoever is wise will pay attention to these things.

They will consider the loving

kindnesses of the LORD.

PSALMS: 137

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

Yes, we wept, when we remembered Tziyon. 

2 On the willows in the midst of it,

We hung up our harps. 

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

Those who tormented us demanded songs of joy:

“Sing us one of the songs of Tziyon!” 

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

5 If I forget you, Yerushalayim,

Let my right hand forget its skill. 

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

If I don’t remember you;

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

7 Remember, LORD, against the children of Edom,

The day of Yerushalayim;

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

8 Daughter of Bavel, doomed to destruction,

He will be happy who rewards you,

As you have served us. 

9 Happy shall he be,

Who takes and dashes your little ones against the rock.

PROVERBS: 17

1 Better is a dry morsel with quietness,

Than a house full of feasting with strife. 

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

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

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

But the LORD tests the hearts. 

4 An evil-doer gives heed to wicked lips.

A liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue. 

5 Whoever mocks the poor reproaches his Maker.

He who is glad at calamity shall not be unpunished. 

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

The glory of children are their parents. 

7 Arrogant speech isn’t fitting for a fool,

Much less do lying lips fit a prince. 

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

Wherever he turns, he prospers.

9 He who covers an offense promotes love;

But he who repeats a matter separates best friends. 

10 A rebuke enters deeper into one who has understanding

Than a hundred lashes into a fool. 

11 An evil man seeks only rebellion;

Therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him. 

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

Rather than a fool in his folly. 

13 Whoever rewards evil for good,

Evil shall not depart from his house. 

14 The beginning of strife is like breaching a dam,

Therefore stop contention before quarreling breaks out. 

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

Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD. 

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

Seeing he has no understanding? 

17 A friend loves at all times;

And a brother is born for adversity. 

18 A man void of understanding strikes hands,

And becomes collateral in the presence of his neighbor. 

19 He who loves disobedience loves strife.

One who builds a high gate seeks destruction. 

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

And one who has a deceitful tongue falls into trouble. 

21 He who becomes the father of a fool grieves.

The father of a fool has no joy. 

22 A cheerful heart makes good medicine,

But a crushed spirit dries up the bones. 

23 A wicked man receives a bribe in secret,

To pervert the ways of justice. 

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

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

25 A foolish son brings grief to his father,

And bitterness to her who bore him. 

26 Also to punish the righteous is not good,

Nor to flog officials for their integrity. 

27 He who spares his words has knowledge.

He who is even tempered is a man of understanding. 

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

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

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 6:16 – 8:7

6:16 Thus says the LORD, Stand you in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way; and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls: but they said, We will not walk [therein]. 17 I set watchmen over you, [saying], Listen to the sound of the shofar; but they said, We will not listen. 18 Therefore hear, you nations, and know, congregation, what is among them. 19 Hear, eretz: behold, I will bring evil on this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not listened to my words; and as for my law, they have rejected it. 20 To what purpose comes there to me frankincense from Sheva, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices pleasing to me. 21 Therefore thus says the LORD, Behold, I will lay stumbling-blocks before this people; and the fathers and the sons together shall stumble against them; the neighbor and his friend shall perish. 22 Thus says the LORD, Behold, a people comes from the north country; and a great nation shall be stirred up from the uttermost parts of the eretz. 23 They lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roars like the sea, and they ride on horses, everyone set in array, as a man to the battle, against you, daughter of Tziyon. 24 We have heard the report of it; our hands wax feeble: anguish has taken hold of us, [and] pangs as of a woman in travail. 25 Don’t go forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword of the enemy, [and] terror, are on every side. 26 Daughter of my people, gird you with sackcloth, and wallow yourself in ashes: make you mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation; for the destroyer shall suddenly come on us. 27 I have made you a tester of metals [and] a fortress among my people; that you may know and try their way. 28 They are all grievous rebels, going about with slanders; they are brass and iron: they all of them deal corruptly. 29 The bellows blow fiercely; the lead is consumed of the fire: in vain do they go on refining; for the wicked are not plucked away. 30 Refuse silver shall men them, because the LORD has rejected them.

7:1 The word that came to Yirmeyahu from the LORD, saying, 2 Stand in the gate of the LORD’s house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all you of Yehudah, who enter in at these gates to worship the LORD. 3 Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. 4 Don’t you trust in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, are these. 5 For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if you thoroughly execute justice between a man and his neighbor; 6 if you don’t oppress the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow, and don’t shed innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your own hurt: 7 then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, from of old even forevermore. 8 Behold, you trust in lying words, that can’t profit. 9 Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense to Ba`al, and walk after other gods that you have not known, 10 and come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered; that you may do all these abominations? 11 Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, I, even I, have seen it, says the LORD. 12 But go you now to my place which was in Shiloh, where I caused my name to dwell at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Yisra’el. 13 Now, because you have done all these works, says the LORD, and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you didn’t hear; and I called you, but you didn’t answer: 14 therefore will I do to the house which is called by my name, in which you trust, and to the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I did to Shiloh. 15 I will cast you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brothers, even the whole seed of Efrayim. 16 Therefore don’t you pray for this people, neither lift up a cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me; for I will not hear you. 17 Don’t you see what they do in the cities of Yehudah and in the streets of Yerushalayim? 18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead the dough, to make cakes to the queen of the sky, and to pour out drink-offerings to other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. 19 Do they provoke me to anger? says the LORD; [do they] not [provoke] themselves, to the confusion of their own faces? 20 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, my anger and my wrath shall be poured out on this place, on man, and on animal, and on the trees of the field, and on the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched. 21 Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices, and eat you flesh. 22 For I didn’t speak to your fathers, nor command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Mitzrayim, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: 23 but this thing I commanded them, saying, Listen to my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people; and walk you in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you. 24 But they didn’t listen nor turn their ear, but walked in [their own] counsels [and] in the stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. 25 Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Mitzrayim to this day, I have sent to you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them: 26 yet they didn’t listen to me, nor inclined their ear, but made their neck stiff: they did worse than their fathers. 27 You shall speak all these words to them; but they will not listen to you: you shall also call to them; but they will not answer you. 28 You shall tell them, This is the nation that has not listened to the voice of the LORD their God, nor received instruction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth. 29 Cut off your hair, [Yerushalayim], and cast it away, and take up a lamentation on the bare heights; for the LORD has rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath. 30 For the children of Yehudah have done that which is evil in my sight, says the LORD: they have set their abominations in the house which is called by my name, to defile it. 31 They have built the high places of Tofet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I didn’t command, neither came it into my mind. 32 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that it shall no more be called Tofet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of Slaughter: for they shall bury in Tofet, until there be no place [to bury]. 33 The dead bodies of this people shall be food for the birds of the sky, and for the animals of the eretz; and none shall frighten them away. 34 Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Yehudah, and from the streets of Yerushalayim, the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride; for the land shall become a waste.

8:1 At that time, says the LORD, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Yehudah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the Kohanim, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, out of their graves; 2 and they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of the sky, which they have loved, and which they have served, and after which they have walked, and which they have sought, and which they have worshiped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried, they shall be for dung on the surface of the eretz. 3 Death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue that remain of this evil family, that remain in all the places where I have driven them, says the LORD of Hosts. 4 Moreover you shall tell them, Thus says the LORD: Shall men fall, and not rise up again? Shall one turn away, and not return? 5 Why then is this people of Yerushalayim slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return. 6 I listened and heard, but they didn’t speak aright: no man repents him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? everyone turns to his course, as a horse that rushes headlong in the battle. 7  Yes, the khasidah in the sky knows her appointed times; and the turtle-dove and the swallow and the crane observe the time of their coming; but my people don’t know the law of the LORD.

NEW TESTAMENT: COLOSSIANS 2:8 – 23

2:8 Be careful that you don’t let anyone rob you through his philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the elements of the world, and not after Messiah. 

9 For in him all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily, 

10 and in him you are made full, who is the head of all principality and power; 

11 in whom you were also circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh, in the circumcision of Messiah; 

12 having been buried with him in immersion, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. 

13 You were dead through your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh. He made you alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses; 

14 having blotted out the bond written in ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us: and he has taken it out that way, nailing it to the cross; 

15 having stripped the principalities and the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it. 

16 Let no man therefore judge you in eating, or in drinking, or with respect to a feast day or a new moon or Shabbat, 

17 which are a shadow of the things to come; but the body is Messiah’s. 

18 Let no man rob you of your prize by a voluntary humility and worshipping of the angels, dwelling in the things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 

19 and not holding firmly to the Head, from whom all the body, being supplied and knit together through the joints and ligaments, grows with God’s growth. 

20 If you died with Messiah from the elements of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to ordinances, 

21 “Don’t handle, nor taste, nor touch” 

22 (all which things are to perish with the using), after the precepts and doctrines of men? 

23 Which things indeed appear like wisdom in self-imposed worship, and humility, and severity to the body; but aren’t of any value against the indulgence of the flesh.

PSALMS: 16, 46, 76, 106, 136

PROVERBS: 16

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 4:19 – 6:15

NEW TESTAMENT: COLOSSIANS 1:18 – 2:7

PSALMS: 16

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

2 My soul, you have said to the LORD,

“You are my Lord.

Apart from you I have no good thing.” 

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

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

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

Their drink-offerings of blood I will not offer,

Nor take their names on my lips. 

5 The LORD assigned my portion and my cup.

You made my lot secure. 

6 The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places.

Yes, I have a good inheritance. 

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

Yes, my heart instructs me in the night seasons. 

8 I have set the LORD always before me.

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

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

My body shall also dwell in safety. 

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

Neither will you allow your holy one to see corruption. 

11 You will show me the path of life.

In your presence is fullness of joy.

In your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.

PSALMS: 46

1 God is our refuge and strength,

A very present help in trouble.

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

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

3 Though the waters of it roar and are troubled,

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

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

The holy place of the tents of Ha`Elyon.

5 God is in the midst of her.

She shall not be moved.

God will help her at dawn. 

6 The nations raged. The kingdoms were moved.

He uttered his voice, and the eretz melted. 

7  The LORD of Hosts is with us.

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

8 Come, see the works of the LORD,

What desolations he has made in the eretz. 

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

He breaks the bow, and cuts the spear apart.

He burns the chariots in the fire. 

10 “Be still, and know that I am God.

I will be exalted among the nations.

I will be exalted in the eretz.” 

11 The LORD of Hosts is with us.

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

PSALMS: 76

1 In Yehudah, God is known.

His name is great in Yisra’el. 

2 His tent is also in Shalem;

His dwelling-place in Tziyon. 

3 There he broke the flaming arrows of the bow,

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

Selah. 

4 Glorious are you, and excellent,

More than mountains of game. 

5 Valiant men lie plundered,

They have slept their last sleep.

None of the men of war can lift their hands. 

6 At your rebuke, God of Ya`akov,

Both chariot and horse are cast into a deep sleep. 

7 You, even you, are to be feared.

Who can stand in your sight when you are angry? 

8 You pronounced judgment from heaven.

The eretz feared, and was silent, 

9 When God arose to judgment,

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

10 Surely the wrath of man praises you.

The survivors of your wrath are restrained. 

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

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

12 He will cut off the spirit of princes.

He is feared by the kings of the eretz.

PSALMS: 106

1 Praise the LORD!

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,

For his loving kindness endures forever. 

2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD,

Or fully declare all his praise? 

3 Blessed are those who keep justice,

He who does righteousness at all times. 

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

Visit me with your yeshu`ah, 

5 That I may see the prosperity of your chosen,

That I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation,

That I may glory with your inheritance. 

6 We have sinned with our fathers.

We have committed iniquity.

We have done wickedly. 

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

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

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

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

That he might make his mighty power known. 

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

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

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

And redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 

11 The waters covered their adversaries.

There was not one of them left. 

12 Then they believed his words.

They sang his praise. 

13 They soon forgot his works.

They didn’t wait for his counsel, 

14 But gave in to craving in the desert,

And tested God in the wasteland. 

15 He gave them their request,

But sent leanness into their soul. 

16 They envied Moshe also in the camp,

And Aharon, the LORD’s holy one. 

17 The eretz opened and swallowed up Datan,

And covered the company of Aviram. 

18 A fire was kindled in their company.

The flame burned up the wicked. 

19 They made a calf in Horev,

And worshiped a molten image. 

20 Thus they exchanged their glory

For an image of a bull that eats grass. 

21 They forgot God, their Savior,

Who had done great things in Mitzrayim, 

22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham,

And awesome things by the Sea of Suf. 

23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them,

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

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

24 Yes, they despised the pleasant land.

They didn’t believe his word, 

25 But murmured in their tents,

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

26 Therefore he swore to them

That he would overthrow them in the wilderness, 

27 That he would overthrow their seed among the nations,

And scatter them in the lands. 

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

And ate the sacrifices of the dead. 

29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their deeds.

The plague broke in on them.

30 Then Pinechas stood up, and executed judgment,

So the plague was stopped. 

31 That was credited to him for righteousness,

To all generations forevermore. 

32 They angered him also at the waters of Merivah,

So that Moshe was troubled for their sakes; 

33 Because they were rebellious against his spirit,

He spoke rashly with his lips.

34 They didn’t destroy the peoples,

As the LORD commanded them, 

35 But mixed themselves with the nations,

Learned their works. 

36 They served their idols,

Which became a snare to them.

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

38 They shed innocent blood,

Even the blood of their sons and of their daughters,

Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Kana`an.

The land was polluted with blood. 

39 Thus were they defiled with their works,

And prostituted themselves in their deeds. 

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

He abhorred his inheritance. 

41 He gave them into the hand of the nations.

Those who hated them ruled over them. 

42 Their enemies also oppressed them.

They were brought into subjection under their hand. 

43 Many times he delivered them,

But they were rebellious in their counsel,

And were brought low in their iniquity. 

44 Nevertheless he regarded their distress,

When he heard their cry. 

45 He remembered for them his covenant,

And repented according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses. 

46 He made them also to be pitied

By all those who carried them captive. 

47 Save us, LORD, our God,

Gather us from among the nations,

To give thanks to your holy name,

To triumph in your praise! 

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

From everlasting even to everlasting!

Let all the people say, ‘

“Amein.

” Praise the LORD!

PSALMS: 136

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

For his loving kindness endures forever. 

2 Give thanks to the God of gods;

For his loving kindness endures forever. 

3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

4 To him who alone does great wonders;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

5 To him who by understanding made the heavens;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

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

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

7  To him who made the great lights;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

8 The sun to rule by day;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

9 The moon and stars to rule by night;

For his loving kindness endures forever:

10 To him who struck down the Mitzrian firstborn;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

11 And brought out Yisra’el from among them;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

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

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

13 To him who divided the Sea of Suf apart;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

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

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

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

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

16 To him who led his people through the wilderness;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

17 To him who struck great kings;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

18 And killed mighty kings;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

19 Sichon king of the Amori;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

20 `Og king of Bashan;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

21 And gave their land as an inheritance;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

22 Even a heritage to Yisra’el his servant;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

23 Who remembered us in our low estate;

For his loving kindness endures forever; 

24 And has delivered us from our adversaries;

For his loving kindness endures forever: 

25 Who gives food to every creature;

For his loving kindness endures forever. 

26 Oh give thanks to the God of heaven;

For his loving kindness endures forever.

PROVERBS: 16

1 The plans of the heart belong to man,

But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. 

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

But the LORD weighs the motives. 

3 Commit your deeds to the LORD,

And your plans shall succeed. 

4 The LORD has made everything for its own end —

Yes, even the wicked for the day of evil.

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

They shall assuredly not be unpunished. 

6 By mercy and truth iniquity is atoned for.

By the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.

7 When a man’s ways please the LORD,

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

8 Better is a little with righteousness,

Than great revenues with injustice. 

9 A man’s heart plans his course,

But the LORD directs his steps. 

10 Inspired judgments are on the lips of the king.

He shall not betray his mouth.

11 Honest balances and scales are the LORD’s;

All the weights in the bag are his work. 

12 It is an abomination for kings to do wrong,

For the throne is established by righteousness. 

13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings.

They value one who speaks the truth. 

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

But a wise man will pacify it. 

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

His favor is like a cloud of the spring rain. 

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

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

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

He who keeps his way preserves his soul. 

18 Pride goes before destruction,

A haughty spirit before a fall. 

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

Than to divide the plunder with the proud. 

20 He who gives heed to the Word finds prosperity.

Whoever trusts in the LORD is blessed.

21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent.

Pleasantness of the lips promotes instruction. 

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

But the punishment of fools is their folly. 

23 The heart of the wise instructs his mouth,

And adds learning to his lips.

24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb,

Sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. 

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

But in the end it leads to death. 

26 The appetite of the laboring man labors for him;

For his mouth urges him on. 

27 A worthless man devises mischief.

His speech is like a scorching fire. 

28 A perverse man stirs up strife.

A whisperer separates close friends. 

29 A man of violence entices his neighbor,

And leads him in a way that is not good. 

30 One who winks his eyes to plot perversities,

One who compresses his lips, is bent on evil. 

31 Gray hair is a crown of glory.

It is attained by a life of righteousness. 

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

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

33 The lot is cast into the lap,

But its every decision is from the LORD.

OLD TESTAMENT: JEREMIAH 4:19 – 6:15

4:19 My anguish, my anguish! I am pained at my very heart; my heart is disquieted in me; I can’t hold my shalom; because you have heard, O my soul, the sound of the shofar, the alarm of war. 20Destruction on destruction is cried; for the whole land is laid waste: suddenly are my tents destroyed, [and] my curtains in a moment. 21 How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the shofar? 22 For my people are foolish, they don’t know me; they are foolish children, and they have no understanding; they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge. 23 I saw the eretz, and, behold, it was waste and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. 24 I saw the mountains, and, behold, they trembled, and all the hills moved back and forth. 25 I saw, and, behold, there was no man, and all the birds of the sky were fled. 26 I saw, and, behold, the fruitful field was a wilderness, and all the cities of it were broken down at the presence of the LORD, [and] before his fierce anger. 27 For thus says the LORD, The whole land shall be a desolation; yet will I not make a full end. 28 For this shall the eretz mourn, and the heavens above be black; because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and I have not repented, neither will I turn back from it. 29 Every city flees for the noise of the horsemen and archers; they go into the thickets, and climb up on the rocks: every city is forsaken, and not a man dwells therein. 30 You, when you are made desolate, what will you do? Though you clothe yourself with scarlet, though you deck you with ornaments of gold, though you enlarge your eyes with paint, in vain do you make yourself beautiful; [your] lovers despise you, they seek your life. 31 For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, the anguish as of her who brings forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Tziyon, who gasps for breath, who spreads her hands, [saying], Woe is me now! for my soul faints before the murderers.

5:1 Run you back and forth through the streets of Yerushalayim, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places of it, if you can find a man, if there are any who does justly, who seeks truth; and I will pardon her. 2 Though they say, As the LORD lives; surely they swear falsely. 3 O LORD, don’t your eyes look on truth? you have stricken them, but they were not grieved; you have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return. 4 Then I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish; for they don’t know the way of the LORD, nor the law of their God: 5 I will get me to the great men, and will speak to them; for they know the way of the LORD, and the law of their God. But these with one accord have broken the yoke, and burst the bonds. 6 Therefore a lion out of the forest shall kill them, a wolf of the evenings shall destroy them, a leopard shall watch against their cities; everyone who goes out there shall be torn in pieces; because their transgressions are many, [and] their backsliding is increased. 7 How can I pardon you? your children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they committed adultery, and assembled themselves in troops at the prostitutes’ houses. 8 They were as fed horses roaming at large; everyone neighed after his neighbor’s wife. 9 Shall I not visit for these things? says the LORD; and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? 10 Go up on her walls, and destroy; but don’t make a full end: take away her branches; for they are not the LORD’s. 11 For the house of Yisra’el and the house of Yehudah have dealt very treacherously against me, says the LORD. 12 They have denied the LORD, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come on us; neither shall we see sword nor famine: 13 and the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done to them. 14 Therefore thus says the LORD, the God Tzva’ot,, Because you speak this word, behold, I will make my words in your mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them. 15 Behold, I will bring a nation on you from far, house of Yisra’el, says the LORD: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language you don’t know, neither understand what they say. 16 Their quiver is an open tomb, they are all mighty men. 17 They shall eat up your harvest, and your bread, [which] your sons and your daughters should eat; they shall eat up your flocks and your herds; they shall eat up your vines and your fig trees; they shall beat down your fortified cities, in which you trust, with the sword. 18 But even in those days, says the LORD, I will not make a full end with you. 19 It shall happen, when you shall say, Why has the LORD our God done all these things to us? then shall you say to them, Like as you have forsaken me, and served foreign gods in your land, so shall you serve strangers in a land that is not yours. 20 Declare you this in the house of Ya`akov, and publish it in Yehudah, saying, 21 Hear now this, foolish people, and without understanding; who have eyes, and don’t see; who have ears, and don’t hear: 22 Don’t you fear me? says the LORD: won’t you tremble at my presence, who have placed the sand for the bound of the sea, by a perpetual decree, that it can’t pass it? and though the waves of it toss themselves, yet they can’t prevail; though they roar, yet they can’t pass over it. 23 But this people has a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. 24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, who gives rain, both the former and the latter, in its season; who preserves to us the appointed weeks of the harvest. 25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withheld good from you. 26 For among my people are found wicked men: they watch, as fowlers lie in wait; they set a trap, they catch men. 27 As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and grew rich. 

28 They are grew fat, they shine: yes, they overpass in deeds of wickedness; they don’t plead the cause, the cause of the fatherless, that they may prosper; and the right of the needy they don’t judge. 29 Shall I not visit for these things? says the LORD; shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? 30 A wonderful and horrible thing is happen in the land: 31 the prophets prophesy falsely, and the Kohanim bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will you do in the end of it?

6:1 Flee for safety, you children of Binyamin, out of the midst of Yerushalayim, and blow the shofar in Tekoa, and raise up a signal on Beit-Hakkerem; for evil looks forth from the north, and a great destruction. 2 The comely and delicate one, the daughter of Tziyon, will I cut off. 3 Shepherds with their flocks shall come to her; they shall pitch their tents against her round about; they shall feed everyone in his place. 4 Prepare you war against her; arise, and let us go up at noon. Woe to us! for the day declines, for the shadows of the evening are stretched out. 5 Arise, and let us go up by night, and let us destroy her palaces. 6 For thus has the LORD of Hosts said, Hew you down trees, and cast up a mound against Yerushalayim: this is the city to be visited; she is wholly oppression in the midst of her.7 As a well casts forth its waters, so she casts forth her wickedness: violence and destruction is heard in her; before me continually is sickness and wounds. 8 Be instructed, Yerushalayim, lest my soul be alienated from you; lest I make you a desolation, a land not inhabited. 9 Thus says the LORD of Hosts, They shall thoroughly glean the remnant of Yisra’el as a vine: turn again your hand as a grape-gatherer into the baskets. 10 To whom shall I speak and testify, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they can’t listen: behold, the word of the LORD is become to them a reproach; they have no delight in it. 11 Therefore I am full of the wrath of the LORD; I am weary with holding in: pour it out on the children in the street, and on the assembly of young men together; for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him who is full of days. 12 Their houses shall be turned to others, their fields and their wives together; for I will stretch out my hand on the inhabitants of the land, says the LORD. 13 For from the least of them even to the greatest of them everyone is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even to the Kohen everyone deals falsely. 14 They have healed also the hurt of my people slightly, saying, Shalom, shalom; when there is no shalom. 15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among those who fall; at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, says the LORD.

NEW TESTAMENT: COLOSSIANS 1:18 – 2:7

1:18 He is the head of the body, the assembly, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For all the fullness was pleased to dwell in him; 20 and through him to reconcile all things to himself, having made shalom through the blood of his cross. Through him, I say, whether things on the eretz, or things in the heavens. 21 You, being in past times alienated and enemies in your mind in your evil works, 22 yet now he has reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and without blemish and blameless before him, 23 if it is so that you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the Good News which you heard, which is being proclaimed in all creation under heaven; of which I, Sha’ul, was made a servant. 24 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and fill up on my part that which is lacking of the afflictions of Messiah in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the assembly; 25 of which I was made a servant, according to the stewardship of God which was given me toward you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden for ages and generations. But now it has been revealed to his holy ones, 27 to whom God was pleased to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Goyim, which is Messiah in you, the hope of glory; 28 whom we proclaim, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Messiah Yeshua; 29 for which I also labor, striving according to his working, which works in me mightily.

2:1 For I desire to have you know how greatly I strive for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; 2 that their hearts may be comforted, they being knit together in love, and to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, that they may know the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Messiah, 3 in whom are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge hidden. 4 Now this I say that no one may delude you with persuasiveness of speech. 5 For though I am absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, rejoicing and seeing your order, and the steadfastness of your faith in Messiah. 6 As therefore you received Messiah Yeshua, the Lord, walk in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, even as you were taught, abounding in it in thanksgiving.
