According to the Common Calendar
1 The Mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken
and called the earth from the rising of the sun
unto the going down thereof.
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath
3 Our God shall come and shall not keep silence;
a devouring fire shall go before Him, and it
shall be very tempestuous round about Him.
4 He shall call to the heavens from above and to
that He may judge His people:
5 "Gather My saints together unto Me,
those that have made a covenant with Me by
6 And the heavens shall declare His
for God Himself is judge.
7 "Hear, O My people, and I will speak,
O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am
God, even thy God.
8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices
or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually
9 I will take no bullock out of thy house,
nor hegoats out of thy folds.
10 For every beast of the forest is Mine
and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
11 I know all the fowls of the mountains,
and the wild beasts of the field are Mine.
12 If I were hungry I would not tell thee,
for the world is Mine and the fullness thereof.
13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls,
or drink the blood of goats?
14 "Offer unto God thanksgiving,
and pay thy vows unto the Most High,
15 and call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify
16 But unto the wicked God saith: "What
hast thou to do to declare My statutes, or that
thou shouldest take My covenant in thy mouth,
17 seeing thou hatest instruction and castest My
words behind thee?
18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consented
and thou hast been partaker with adulterers.
19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil,
and thy tongue frameth deceit.
20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother;
thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
21 These things hast thou done, and I kept
thou thoughtest that I was altogether such a one
But I will reprove thee and set them in order
before thine eyes.
22 "Now consider this, ye that forget
lest I tear you in pieces and there be none to
23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth Me;
and to him that ordereth his manner of living
aright, I will show the salvation of God."
9 And He spoke this parable unto certain ones who trusted in
themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
10 "Two men went up into
the temple to pray, the one a Pharisee and the other a publican. 11 The
Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, `God, I thank Thee that I am not
as other men are: extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
12 I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I possess.' 13 And the
publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes unto
heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, `God, be merciful to me a sinner!'
14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the
other; for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased, and he that
humbleth himself shall be exalted."
2 Timothy 4:6-22
6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at
hand. 7 I have fought a good fight; I have finished my course; I have kept
the faith. 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness
which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me on that Day -- and not to me
only, but unto all those also who love His appearing.
9 Use diligence to come shortly unto me, 10 for Demas hath forsaken
me, having loved this present world, and has departed unto Thessalonica;
Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia. 11 Only Luke is with me. Take
Mark and bring him with thee, for he is profitable to me for the ministry. 12 And
Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus. 13 The cloak that I left at Troas with
Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the
parchments. 14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil; the Lord reward
him according to his works. 15 Beware thou also of him, for he hath greatly
withstood our words.
16 At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me. I
pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. 17 Notwithstanding, the
Lord stood with me and strengthened me, that by me the preaching might be fully
known, and that all the Gentiles might hear. And I was delivered out of the
mouth of the lion. 18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work
and will preserve me unto His heavenly Kingdom, to whom be glory for ever and
19 Salute Prisca and Aquila and the household of Onesiphorus. 20 Erastus
remained at Corinth, but Trophimus I have left sick at Miletus. 21 Try with
diligence to come before winter. Eubulus greeteth thee, and Pudens and Linus and
Claudia and all the brethren.
22 The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you.
1 "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
because the LORD hath anointed Me to preach good tidings unto the meek.
He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the
and the opening of the prison to them that are bound,
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of
to comfort all that mourn,
3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for
the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of
that they might be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the LORD, that He might be glorified."
4 And they shall build the wastes of old,
they shall raise up the former desolations,
and they shall repair the waste cities,
the desolations of many generations.
5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks,
and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD;
men shall call you the Ministers of our God.
Ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles,
and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
7 For your shame ye shall have double,
and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.
Therefore in their land they shall possess the double; everlasting joy shall
be unto them.
8 "For I, the LORD, love judgment;
I hate robbery for burnt offering;
and I will direct their work in truth,
and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles
and their offspring among the people;
all that see them shall acknowledge them,
that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed."
10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD;
my soul shall be joyful in my God.
For He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation;
He hath covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments,
and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the
things that are sown in it to spring forth,
so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before
all the nations.
