Psalm 29

1 Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty;
give unto the LORD glory and strength.
2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto His name;
worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters;
the God of glory thundereth; the LORD is upon many waters.
4 The voice of the LORD is powerful;
the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars;
yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf,
Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
7 The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.
8 The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the Wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and layeth bare the forests,
and in His temple doth every one speak of His glory.

10 The LORD sitteth over the flood;
yea, the LORD sitteth as King for ever.
11 The LORD will give strength unto His people;
the LORD will bless His people with peace.

Luke 11:14-28

14 And He was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass when the devil had gone out, the dumb one spoke; and the people wondered. 15 But some of them said, "He casteth out devils through Beelzebub, the chief of the devils." 16 And others, testing Him, sought from Him a sign from Heaven. 17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said unto them,

"Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. 18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand -- because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub? 19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore shall they be your judges. 20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, doubt not the Kingdom of God is come upon you. 21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace. 22 But when one stronger than he shall come upon him and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armor wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. 23 He that is not with Me, is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me, scattereth.

24 "When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, `I will return unto my house whence I came out.' 25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26 Then he goeth and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first."

27 And it came to pass, as He spoke these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice and said unto Him, "Blessed is the womb that bore Thee and the breasts which Thou hast sucked." 28 But He said,

"Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the Word of God and keep it."

2 Thessalonians 3:1-12 

1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the Word of the Lord may have free course and be glorified, even as it is with you, 2 and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for not all men have faith. 3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you and keep you from evil. 4 And we have confidence in the Lord concerning you, that ye both do, and will do, the things which we command you. 5 And may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. 

6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother who walketh disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us. 7 For you yourselves know how ye ought to follow us, for we did not behave disorderly among you; 8 neither did we eat any man's bread for naught, but wrought with labor and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you, 9 not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an example unto you to follow us. 10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you: that if any would not work, neither should he eat. 11 For we hear that there are some among you who walk disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 12 Now those who are such, we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ that they work with quietness and eat their own bread.

Isaiah 7:1-17

1 And it came to pass in the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Syria and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up toward Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail against it. 2 And it was told the house of David, saying, "Syria is confederate with Ephraim." And his heart was moved, and the heart of his people, as the trees of the wood are moved with the wind.

3 Then said the LORD unto Isaiah, "Go forth now to meet Ahaz, thou and Shearjashub [that is, The remnant shall return], thy son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the Fuller's Field, 4 and say unto him: `Take heed, and be quiet. Fear not, neither be fainthearted at the two tails of these smoking firebrands -- at the fierce anger of Rezin and Syria, and of the son of Remaliah. 5 Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah have taken evil counsel against thee, saying, 6 "Let us go up against Judah and vex it, and let us make a breach therein for us, and set a king in the midst of it, even the son of Tabeel," 7 thus saith the Lord GOD: It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass. 8 For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people. 9 And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son. If ye will not believe, surely ye shall not be established.'"

10 Moreover the LORD spoke again unto Ahaz, saying, 11 "Ask thee a sign of the LORD thy God; ask it either in the depth or in the height above." 12 But Ahaz said, "I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD." 13 And Isaiah said, "Hear ye now, O house of David! Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? 14 Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. 15 Butter and honey shall He eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. 16 For before the Child shall know to refuse the evil and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings. 17 The LORD shall bring upon thee and upon thy people and upon thy father's house days that have not come since the day that Ephraim departed from Judah: even the king of Assyria."

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 21:30

There is no wisdom, nor understanding, 
nor counsel against the LORD.
