1 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous!
For praise is comely for the upright.
2 Praise the LORD with the harp;
sing unto Him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.
3 Sing unto Him a new song;
play skillfully with a loud noise.
4 For the word of the LORD is right,
and all His works are done in truth.
5 He loveth righteousness and judgment;
the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made,
and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap;
He layeth up the deep in storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear the LORD;
let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
9 For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.
10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to
He maketh the devices of the people of no effect.
11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever,
the thoughts of His heart to all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.
13 The LORD looketh down from heaven;
He beholdeth all of the sons of men.
14 From the place of His habitation
He looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth;
15 He fashioneth the hearts of all;
He considereth all their works.
16 No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
17 A horse is a vain thing for safety;
neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear Him,
upon them that hope in His mercy,
19 to deliver their soul from death,
and to keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD;
He is our help and our shield.
21 For our heart shall rejoice in Him,
because we have trusted in His holy name.
22 Let Thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us,
according as we hope in Thee.
22 And He said unto His
disciples, "Therefore I say unto you, take no
thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for
the body, what ye shall put on. 23 The life is more
than meat, and the body is more than raiment. 24
Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap,
they neither have storehouse nor barn, and God
feedeth them. How much more are ye better than the
fowls? 25 And which of you by taking thought can add
to his stature one cubit? 26 If ye then be not able
to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought
for the rest? 27 Consider the lilies, how they grow:
they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you
that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like
one of these. 28 If then God so clothe the grass,
which is today in the field and tomorrow is cast into
the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O ye of
29 "And seek ye not what
ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye
of doubting mind. 30 For all these things do the
nations of the world seek after, and your Father
knoweth that ye have need of these things. 31 But
rather seek ye the Kingdom of God, and all these
things shall be added unto you.
32 "Fear not, little
flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give
you the Kingdom. 33 Sell what ye have, and give alms.
Provide yourselves purses which wax not old, a
treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no
thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34 For
where your treasure is, there will your heart be
1 Timothy 3
1 This is a true saying: If a man desire the office of bishop,
he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the
husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to
hospitality, apt at teaching; 3 not given to wine, not violent, not
greedy for filthy lucre, but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 4 one
who ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with
all dignity. 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house,
how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6 He must not be a
novice in the faith, lest being lifted up with pride, he fall into the
condemnation of the devil. 7 Moreover he must have a good
reputation with those who are outsiders, lest he fall into reproach and
the snare of the devil.
Isaiah 11:11-12, 16
11 And it shall come to pass in that day that the Lord
shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His
people who shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros,
and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from
the islands of the sea.
12 And He shall set up an ensign for the nations,
and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel,
and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of
16 And there shall be a highway for the remnant of
His people who shall be left from Assyria,
as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of
1 And in that day thou shalt say: "O LORD, I
will praise Thee;
though Thou wast angry with me, Thine anger is turned away, and Thou
2 Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid;
for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song;
He also has become my salvation."
3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the
wells of salvation;
4 and in that day shall ye say:
"Praise the LORD!
Call upon His name!
Declare His doings among the people;
make mention that His name is exalted.
5 Sing unto the LORD, for He hath done excellent things;
this is known in all the earth.
6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion!
For great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee."
