Authorized VersionTM NAVTM)
According to the Common Calendar
1 Judge me, O LORD, for I have walked in mine
I have also trusted in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
2 Examine me, O LORD, and test me;
try my reins and my heart.
3 For Thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes,
and I have walked in Thy truth.
4 I have not sat with vain persons,
neither will I consort with dissemblers.
5 I have hated the congregation of evildoers,
and will not sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash mine hands in innocence;
so will I compass Thine altar, O LORD,
7 that I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving,
and tell of all Thy wondrous works.
8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of Thy house,
and the place where Thine honor dwelleth.
9 Gather not my soul with sinners,
nor my life with bloody men,
10 in whose hands is mischief,
and their right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity;
redeem me and be merciful unto me.
12 My foot standeth on a level place;
in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
25 And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying,
"Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" 26 He said unto
"What is written in the law? How readest
27 And he answering said, "`Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy
mind, and thy neighbor as thyself.'" 28 And He said unto him,
"Thou hast answered right; this do, and
thou shalt live."
29 But he, wanting to justify himself, said unto Jesus, "And who is my
neighbor?" 30 And Jesus answering said,
"A certain man went down from Jerusalem
to Jericho and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his raiment and wounded
him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a
certain priest that way. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him and
passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came
to where he was. And when he saw him he had compassion on him, 34 and went to
him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his
own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 And on the
morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host and
said unto him, `Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I
come again I will repay thee.' 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was
neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves?"
37 And he said, "He that showed mercy on him." Then said Jesus unto
"Go and do thou likewise."
2 Thessalonians 1
1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timothy,
Unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ:
2 Grace unto you and peace from God our Father and the
Lord Jesus Christ.
3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as
it is meet, because your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of
every one of you all toward each other aboundeth, 4 so that we ourselves
glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all
persecutions and tribulations that ye endure, 5 which is a manifest
token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of
the Kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer. 6 For it is a righteous
thing with God to recompense with tribulation those who trouble you; 7
and to you who are troubled, rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be
revealed from Heaven with His mighty angels, 8 in flaming fire taking
vengeance on those who know not God, and who obey not the Gospel of our
Lord Jesus Christ. 9 These shall be punished with everlasting
destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His
power, 10 when He shall come on that Day to be glorified in His saints
and to be admired in all those who believe, because our testimony among
you was believed.
11 Therefore also we pray always for you, that our God
would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good
pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power, 12 that the
name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in Him,
according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Now will I sing to my Well-beloved a song of my
Beloved concerning His vineyard:
my Well-beloved hath a vineyard on a very fruitful hill.
2 And He fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted
it with the choicest vine;
and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a wine press
And He looked for it to bring forth grapes,
and it brought forth wild grapes.
3 "And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men
judge, I pray you, between Me and My vineyard.
4 What could have been done more to My vineyard than I have not done
Why, when I looked for it to bring forth good grapes, brought it
forth wild grapes?
5 "And now, I will tell you what I will do to
My vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof,
and it shall be eaten up;
and break down the wall thereof,
and it shall be trodden down.
6 And I will lay it waste; it shall not be pruned nor dug, but there
shall come up briers and thorns.
I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it."
7 For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house
and the men of Judah, His pleasant plant.
And He looked for judgment, but behold, oppression;
for righteousness, but behold, a cry.
Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 21:23
Whoso guardeth his mouth and his tongue
