Psalm 25

1 Unto Thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul;
2 O my God, I trust in Thee.
Let me not be ashamed;
let not mine enemies triumph over me.
3 Yea, let none that wait on Thee be ashamed;
let them be ashamed that transgress without cause.

4 Show me Thy ways, O LORD;
teach me Thy paths.
5 Lead me in Thy truth and teach me,
for Thou art the God of my salvation;
on Thee do I wait all the day.

6 Remember, O LORD, Thy tender mercies and Thy lovingkindnesses;
for they have been ever of old.
7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions;
according to Thy mercy remember Thou me,
for Thy goodness' sake, O LORD.

8 Good and upright is the LORD;
therefore will He teach sinners in the way.
9 The meek will He guide in judgment,
and the meek will He teach His way.
10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth,
unto them that keep His covenant and His testimonies.

11 For Thy name's sake, O LORD,
pardon mine iniquity, for it is great.
12 What man is he that feareth the LORD?
Him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose.
13 His soul shall dwell at ease,
and his seed shall inherit the earth.
14 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear Him,
and He will show them His covenant.
15 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD,
for He shall pluck my feet out of the net.

16 Turn Thee unto me and have mercy upon me,
for I am desolate and afflicted.
17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged;
O bring Thou me out of my distresses.
18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain,
and forgive all my sins.
19 Consider mine enemies, for they are many;
they hate me with cruel hatred.
20 O keep my soul and deliver me;
let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in Thee.
21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
for I wait on Thee.

22 Redeem Israel, O God,
out of all his troubles!

Luke 10:21-24

21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in Spirit and said, "I thank Thee, O Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, that Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Thy sight. 22 All things are delivered to Me by My Father, and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son and he to whom the Son will reveal Him."

23 And He turned unto His disciples and said privately,

"Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see. 24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them."

1 Thessalonians 5:12-28 

12 And we beseech you, brethren, that you come to know those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, 13 and to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves. 

14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man, but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves and with all men. 16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19 Quench not the Spirit. 20 Despise not prophesyings. 21 Test all things; hold fast to that which is good. 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is He that calleth you; He also will do it. 

25 Brethren, pray for us. 26 Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss. 27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren. 

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

Amen. 

Isaiah 4

1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, "We will eat our own bread and wear our own apparel; only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach."

2 In that day shall the Branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious; and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for those who have escaped of Israel. 3 And it shall come to pass that he that is left in Zion and he that remaineth in Jerusalem shall be called holy -- even every one who is written among the living in Jerusalem -- 4 when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning. 5 And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for upon all the glory shall be a defense. 6 And there shall be a tabernacle for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and for a covert from storm and from rain.

Words of Wisdom - Jeremiah 4:22

"For My people are foolish, 
they have not known Me; 
they are sottish children, 
and they have no understanding. 
They are wise to do evil, 
but to do good they have no knowledge."
