PSALMS:  18

 

For the director of music. Of David the servant of the LORD. He sang to the LORD the words of this song when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said:

1 I love you, O LORD, my strength.

2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;

my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.

He is my shield and the horn A of my salvation, my stronghold.

3 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,

and I am saved from my enemies.

 

4 The cords of death entangled me;

the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.

5 The cords of the grave B coiled around me;

the snares of death confronted me.

6 In my distress I called to the LORD;

I cried to my God for help.

From his temple he heard my voice;

my cry came before him, into his ears.

 

7 The earth trembled and quaked,

and the foundations of the mountains shook;

they trembled because he was angry.

8 Smoke rose from his nostrils;

consuming fire came from his mouth,

burning coals blazed out of it.

9 He parted the heavens and came down;

dark clouds were under his feet.

 

10 He mounted the cherubim and flew;

he soared on the wings of the wind. [1]

11 He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him–

the dark rain clouds of the sky.

12 Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced,

with hailstones and bolts of lightning.

13 The LORD thundered from heaven;

the voice of the Most High resounded. C

 

14 He shot his arrows and scattered the enemies,

great bolts of lightning and routed them.

15 The valleys of the sea were exposed

and the foundations of the earth laid bare

at your rebuke, O LORD,

at the blast of breath from your nostrils.

16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me;

he drew me out of deep waters.

17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy,

from my foes, who were too strong for me.

18 They confronted me in the day of my disaster,

but the LORD was my support.

19 He brought me out into a spacious place;

he rescued me because he delighted in me.

 

20 The LORD has dealt with me according to my righteousness;

according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me.

21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD;

I have not done evil by turning from my God.

22 All his laws are before me;

I have not turned away from his decrees.

23 I have been blameless before him

and have kept myself from sin.

24 The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness,

according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight. [2]

25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful,

to the blameless you show yourself blameless,

26 to the pure you show yourself pure,

but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.

27 You save the humble

but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.

28 You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning;

my God turns my darkness into light.

29 With your help I can advance against a troop D;

with my God I can scale a wall.

 

30 As for God, his way is perfect;

the word of the LORD is flawless.

He is a shield

for all who take refuge in him.

31 For who is God besides the LORD?

And who is the Rock except our God?

32 It is God who arms me with strength

and makes my way perfect.

33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;

he enables me to stand on the heights.

34 He trains my hands for battle;

my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

35 You give me your shield of victory,

and your right hand sustains me;

you stoop down to make me great.

36 You broaden the path beneath me,

so that my ankles do not turn.

37 I pursued my enemies and overtook them;

I did not turn back till they were destroyed.

 

38 I crushed them so that they could not rise;

they fell beneath my feet. [3]

39 You armed me with strength for battle;

you made my adversaries bow at my feet.

40 You made my enemies turn their backs in flight,

and I destroyed my foes.

41 They cried for help, but there was no one to save them–

to the LORD, but he did not answer.

42 I beat them as fine as dust borne on the wind;

I poured them out like mud in the streets.

43 You have delivered me from the attacks of the people;

you have made me the head of nations;

people I did not know are subject to me.

 

44 As soon as they hear me, they obey me;

foreigners cringe before me.

45 They all lose heart;

they come trembling from their strongholds.

 

46 The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock!

Exalted be God my Savior!

47 He is the God who avenges me,

who subdues nations under me,

48 who saves me from my enemies.

You exalted me above my foes;

from violent men you rescued me.

49 Therefore I will praise you among the nations, O LORD;

I will sing praises to your name.

50 He gives his king great victories;

he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed,

to David and his descendants forever. [4]

 

PSALMS:  48

 

A song. A psalm of the Sons of Korah.

1 Great is the LORD, and most worthy of praise,

in the city of our God, his holy mountain.

2 It is beautiful in its loftiness,

the joy of the whole earth.

Like the utmost heights of Zaphon A is Mount Zion,

the B city of the Great King.

3 God is in her citadels;

he has shown himself to be her fortress.

4 When the kings joined forces,

when they advanced together,

5 they saw her and were astounded;

they fled in terror.

 

6 Trembling seized them there,

pain like that of a woman in labor.

7 You destroyed them like ships of Tarshish

shattered by an east wind.

8 As we have heard,

so have we seen

in the city of the LORD Almighty,

in the city of our God:

God makes her secure forever.

Selah

9 Within your temple, O God,

we meditate on your unfailing love.

10 Like your name, O God,

your praise reaches to the ends of the earth;

your right hand is filled with righteousness. [5]

11 Mount Zion rejoices,

the villages of Judah are glad

because of your judgments.

 

12 Walk about Zion, go around her,

count her towers,

13 consider well her ramparts,

view her citadels,

that you may tell of them to the next generation.

14 For this God is our God for ever and ever;

he will be our guide even to the end. [6]

 

PSALMS:  78

 

A maskil A of Asaph.

1 O my people, hear my teaching;

listen to the words of my mouth.

2 I will open my mouth in parables,

I will utter hidden things, things from of old–

3 what we have heard and known,

what our fathers have told us.

4 We will not hide them from their children;

we will tell the next generation

the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD,

his power, and the wonders he has done.

5 He decreed statutes for Jacob

and established the law in Israel,

which he commanded our forefathers

to teach their children,

6 so the next generation would know them,

even the children yet to be born,

and they in turn would tell their children.

7 Then they would put their trust in God

and would not forget his deeds

but would keep his commands.

8 They would not be like their forefathers–

a stubborn and rebellious generation,

whose hearts were not loyal to God,

whose spirits were not faithful to him.

9 The men of Ephraim, though armed with bows,

turned back on the day of battle;

10 they did not keep God’s covenant

and refused to live by his law.

11 They forgot what he had done,

the wonders he had shown them.

12 He did miracles in the sight of their fathers

in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan.

13 He divided the sea and led them through;

he made the water stand firm like a wall.

14 He guided them with the cloud by day

and with light from the fire all night.

15 He split the rocks in the desert

and gave them water as abundant as the seas;

16 he brought streams out of a rocky crag

and made water flow down like rivers.

17 But they continued to sin against him,

rebelling in the desert against the Most High.

18 They willfully put God to the test

by demanding the food they craved.

19 They spoke against God, saying,

“Can God spread a table in the desert?

20 When he struck the rock, water gushed out,

and streams flowed abundantly.

But can he also give us food?

Can he supply meat for his people?”

 

21 When the LORD heard them, he was very angry;

his fire broke out against Jacob,

and his wrath rose against Israel,

22 for they did not believe in God

or trust in his deliverance.

23 Yet he gave a command to the skies above

and opened the doors of the heavens;

24 he rained down manna for the people to eat, [7]

he gave them the grain of heaven.

25 Men ate the bread of angels;

he sent them all the food they could eat.

26 He let loose the east wind from the heavens

and led forth the south wind by his power.

27 He rained meat down on them like dust,

flying birds like sand on the seashore.

28 He made them come down inside their camp,

all around their tents.

29 They ate till they had more than enough,

for he had given them what they craved.

30 But before they turned from the food they craved,

even while it was still in their mouths,

31 God’s anger rose against them;

he put to death the sturdiest among them,

cutting down the young men of Israel.

 

32 In spite of all this, they kept on sinning;

in spite of his wonders, they did not believe.

33 So he ended their days in futility

and their years in terror.

34 Whenever God slew them, they would seek him;

they eagerly turned to him again.

35 They remembered that God was their Rock,

that God Most High was their Redeemer.

36 But then they would flatter him with their mouths,

lying to him with their tongues;

37 their hearts were not loyal to him,

they were not faithful to his covenant.

38 Yet he was merciful;

he forgave their iniquities

and did not destroy them.

Time after time he restrained his anger

and did not stir up his full wrath. [8]

39 He remembered that they were but flesh,

a passing breeze that does not return.

 

40 How often they rebelled against him in the desert

and grieved him in the wasteland!

41 Again and again they put God to the test;

they vexed the Holy One of Israel.

42 They did not remember his power–

the day he redeemed them from the oppressor,

43 the day he displayed his miraculous signs in Egypt,

his wonders in the region of Zoan.

44 He turned their rivers to blood;

they could not drink from their streams.

45 He sent swarms of flies that devoured them,

and frogs that devastated them.

46 He gave their crops to the grasshopper,

their produce to the locust.

47 He destroyed their vines with hail

and their sycamore-figs with sleet.

48 He gave over their cattle to the hail,

their livestock to bolts of lightning.

 

49 He unleashed against them his hot anger,

his wrath, indignation and hostility–

a band of destroying angels.

50 He prepared a path for his anger;

he did not spare them from death

but gave them over to the plague.

51 He struck down all the firstborn of Egypt,

the firstfruits of manhood in the tents of Ham.

52 But he brought his people out like a flock;

he led them like sheep through the desert.

53 He guided them safely, so they were unafraid;

but the sea engulfed their enemies.

54 Thus he brought them to the border of his holy land, [9]

to the hill country his right hand had taken.

55 He drove out nations before them

and allotted their lands to them as an inheritance;

he settled the tribes of Israel in their homes.

 

56 But they put God to the test

and rebelled against the Most High;

they did not keep his statutes.

57 Like their fathers they were disloyal and faithless,

as unreliable as a faulty bow.

58 They angered him with their high places;

they aroused his jealousy with their idols.

59 When God heard them, he was very angry;

he rejected Israel completely.

60 He abandoned the tabernacle of Shiloh,

the tent he had set up among men.

61 He sent the ark of his might into captivity,

his splendor into the hands of the enemy.

62 He gave his people over to the sword;

he was very angry with his inheritance.

63 Fire consumed their young men,

and their maidens had no wedding songs;

64 their priests were put to the sword,

and their widows could not weep.

 

65 Then the Lord awoke as from sleep,

as a man wakes from the stupor of wine.

66 He beat back his enemies;

he put them to everlasting shame.

67 Then he rejected the tents of Joseph,

he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim;

68 but he chose the tribe of Judah, [10]

Mount Zion, which he loved.

69 He built his sanctuary like the heights,

like the earth that he established forever.

70 He chose David his servant

and took him from the sheep pens;

71 from tending the sheep he brought him

to be the shepherd of his people Jacob,

of Israel his inheritance.

72 And David shepherded them with integrity of heart;

with skillful hands he led them. [11]

 

PSALMS:  108

 

A song. A psalm of David.

1 My heart is steadfast, O God;

I will sing and make music with all my soul.

2 Awake, harp and lyre!

I will awaken the dawn.

3 I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations;

I will sing of you among the peoples.

4 For great is your love, higher than the heavens;

your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,

and let your glory be over all the earth.

6 Save us and help us with your right hand,

that those you love may be delivered.

 

7 God has spoken from his sanctuary:

“In triumph I will parcel out Shechem

and measure off the Valley of Succoth.

8 Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine;

Ephraim is my helmet,

Judah my scepter.

9 Moab is my washbasin,

upon Edom I toss my sandal;

over Philistia I shout in triumph.”

10 Who will bring me to the fortified city?

Who will lead me to Edom?

11 Is it not you, O God, you who have rejected us

and no longer go out with our armies?

12 Give us aid against the enemy,

for the help of man is worthless.

13 With God we will gain the victory, [12]

and he will trample down our enemies. [13]

 

PSALMS:  138

 

Of David.

1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart;

before the “gods” I will sing your praise.

2 I will bow down toward your holy temple

and will praise your name

for your love and your faithfulness,

for you have exalted above all things

your name and your word.

3 When I called, you answered me;

you made me bold and stouthearted.

4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD,

when they hear the words of your mouth.

5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD,

 

6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly,

but the proud he knows from afar.

7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble,

you preserve my life;

you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes,

with your right hand you save me.

8 The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;

your love, O LORD, endures forever–

do not abandon the works of your hands. [14]

 

PROVERBS:  18

 

18 1 An unfriendly man pursues selfish ends;

he defies all sound judgment.

2 A fool finds no pleasure in understanding

but delights in airing his own opinions.

3 When wickedness comes, so does contempt,

and with shame comes disgrace.

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

but the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.

5 It is not good to be partial to the wicked

or to deprive the innocent of justice.

6 A fool’s lips bring him strife,

and his mouth invites a beating.

7 A fool’s mouth is his undoing,

and his lips are a snare to his soul.

8 The words of a gossip are like choice morsels;

they go down to a man’s inmost parts.

9 One who is slack in his work

is brother to one who destroys.

10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower;

the righteous run to it and are safe.

11 The wealth of the rich is their fortified city;

they imagine it an unscalable wall. [15]

12 Before his downfall a man’s heart is proud,

but humility comes before honor.

13 He who answers before listening–

that is his folly and his shame.

 

14 A man’s spirit sustains him in sickness,

but a crushed spirit who can bear?

15 The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge;

the ears of the wise seek it out.

16 A gift opens the way for the giver

and ushers him into the presence of the great.

17 The first to present his case seems right,

till another comes forward and questions him.

18 Casting the lot settles disputes

and keeps strong opponents apart.

19 An offended brother is more unyielding than a fortified city,

and disputes are like the barred gates of a citadel.

20 From the fruit of his mouth a man’s stomach is filled;

with the harvest from his lips he is satisfied.

21 The tongue has the power of life and death,

and those who love it will eat its fruit.

22 He who finds a wife finds what is good

and receives favor from the LORD. [16]

23 A poor man pleads for mercy,

but a rich man answers harshly.

24 A man of many companions may come to ruin,

but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. [17]

 

OLD TESTAMENT:  1 SAMUEL 8:1 – 9:27

8 1 When Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons as judges for Israel. 2 The name of his firstborn was Joel and the name of his second was Abijah, and they served at Beersheba. 3 But his sons did not walk in his ways. They turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice.

4 So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah. 5 They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways; now appoint a king to lead A us, such as all the other nations have.”

6 But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the LORD. 7 And the LORD told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. 8 As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9 Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do.”

10 Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who were asking him for a king. 11 He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will do: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. 12 Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13 He will take your daughters to be perfumers and [18] cooks and bakers. 14 He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. 15 He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. 16 Your menservants and maidservants and the best of your cattle B and donkeys he will take for his own use. 17He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18 When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day.”

19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. “No!” they said. “We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.”

21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, “Listen to them and give them a king.”

Then Samuel said to the men of Israel, “Everyone go back to his town.”

 

9 1 There was a Benjamite, a man of standing, whose name was Kish son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Becorath, the son of Aphiah of Benjamin. 2 He had a son named Saul, an impressive young man without equal among the Israelites–a head taller than any of the others. [19]

 

3 Now the donkeys belonging to Saul’s father Kish were lost, and Kish said to his son Saul, “Take one of the servants with you and go and look for the donkeys.” 4 So he passed through the hill country of Ephraim and through the area around Shalisha, but they did not find them. They went on into the district of Shaalim, but the donkeys were not there. Then he passed through the territory of Benjamin, but they did not find them.

5 When they reached the district of Zuph, Saul said to the servant who was with him, “Come, let’s go back, or my father will stop thinking about the donkeys and start worrying about us.”

6 But the servant replied, “Look, in this town there is a man of God; he is highly respected, and everything he says comes true. Let’s go there now. Perhaps he will tell us what way to take.”

7 Saul said to his servant, “If we go, what can we give the man? The food in our sacks is gone. We have no gift to take to the man of God. What do we have?”

 

8 The servant answered him again. “Look,” he said, “I have a quarter of a shekelA of silver. I will give it to the man of God so that he will tell us what way to take.”

9 (Formerly in Israel, if a man went to inquire of God, he would say, “Come, let us go to the seer,” because the prophet of today used to be called a seer.)

10 “Good,” Saul said to his servant. “Come, let’s go.” So they set out for the town where the man of God was.

11 As they were going up the hill to the town, they met some girls coming out to draw water, and they asked them, “Is the seer here?”

12 “He is,” they answered. “He’s ahead of you. Hurry now; he has just come to our town today, for the people have a sacrifice at the [20] high place. 13 As soon as you enter the town, you will find him before he goes up to the high place to eat. The people will not begin eating until he comes, because he must bless the sacrifice; afterward, those who are invited will eat. Go up now; you should find him about this time.”

14 They went up to the town, and as they were entering it, there was Samuel, coming toward them on his way up to the high place.

15 Now the day before Saul came, the LORD had revealed this to Samuel: 16 “About this time tomorrow I will send you a man from the land of Benjamin. Anoint him leader over my people Israel; he will deliver my people from the hand of the Philistines. I have looked upon my people, for their cry has reached me.”

17 When Samuel caught sight of Saul, the LORD said to him, “This is the man I spoke to you about; he will govern my people.”

18 Saul approached Samuel in the gateway and asked, “Would you please tell me where the seer’s house is?”

19 “I am the seer,” Samuel replied. “Go up ahead of me to the high place, for today you are to eat with me, and in the morning I will let you go and will tell you all that is in your heart. 20 As for the donkeys you lost three days ago, do not worry about them; they have been found. And to whom is all the desire of Israel turned, if not to you and all your father’s family?”

21 Saul answered, “But am I not a Benjamite, from the smallest tribe of Israel, and is not my clan the least of all the clans of the tribe of Benjamin? Why do you say such a thing to me?”

22 Then Samuel brought Saul and his servant into the hall and [21] seated them at the head of those who were invited–about thirty in number. 23 Samuel said to the cook, “Bring the piece of meat I gave you, the one I told you to lay aside.”

24 So the cook took up the leg with what was on it and set it in front of Saul. Samuel said, “Here is what has been kept for you. Eat, because it was set aside for you for this occasion, from the time I said, `I have invited guests.’ ” And Saul dined with Samuel that day.

25 After they came down from the high place to the town, Samuel talked with Saul on the roof of his house.

26 They rose about daybreak and Samuel called to Saul on the roof, “Get ready, and I will send you on your way.” When Saul got ready, he and Samuel went outside together. 27 As they were going down to the edge of the town, Samuel said to Saul, “Tell the servant to go on ahead of us”–and the servant did so–“but you stay here awhile, so that I may give you a message from God.” [22]

 

NEW TESTAMENT:  JOHN 6:22 – 42

22 The next day the crowd that had stayed on the opposite shore of the lake realized that only one boat had been there, and that Jesus had not entered it with his disciples, but that they had gone away alone. 23 Then some boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the people had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks. 24 Once the crowd realized that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into the boats and went to Capernaum in search of Jesus.

25 When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?”

26 Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”

28 Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”

29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

30 So they asked him, “What miraculous sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do? 31 Our forefathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written: `He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ C

32 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is he who [23] comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

34 “Sir,” they said, “from now on give us this bread.”

35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. 36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. 37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. 38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. 40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”

41 At this the Jews began to grumble about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” 42 They said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, `I came down from heaven’?” [24]
