Authorized VersionTM NAVTM)
According to the Common Calendar
1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down;
yea, we wept when we remembered Zion.
2 We hung our harps upon the willows
in the midst thereof.
3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song,
and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, "Sing us
one of the songs of Zion!"
4 How shall we sing the LORD's song in a strange land?
5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her
6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my
if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
7 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of
who said, "Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation
8 O daughter of Babylon who art to be destroyed, happy shall he
be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against
15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another
disciple. That disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with
Jesus into the palace of the high priest. 16 But Peter stood at the door
outside. Then the other disciple, who was known unto the high priest,
went out and spoke unto her who kept the door, and brought in Peter. 17
Then the damsel who kept the door said unto Peter, "Art not thou
also one of this man's disciples?" He said, "I am not."
18 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of
coals, for it was cold and they warmed themselves. And Peter stood with
them, and warmed himself.
19 The high priest then asked Jesus about His disciples
and about His doctrine. 20 Jesus answered him,
"I spoke openly to
the world; I ever taught in the synagogue and in the temple whither
the Jews always resort, and in secret have I said nothing. 21 Why
askest thou Me? Ask them that heard Me what I have said unto them.
Behold, they know what I said."
22 And when He had thus spoken, one of the officers who
stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, "Answerest
thou the high priest so?" 23 Jesus answered him,
"If I have spoken
evil, bear witness of the evil; but if well, why smitest thou
24 Now Annas had sent Him bound unto Caiaphas, the
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea. And I saw a
beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon
his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And
the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the
feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the dragon
gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 3 And I saw that
one of his heads was, as it were, wounded to death, and his deadly wound
was healed. And all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they
worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast, and they worshiped
the beast, saying, "Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make
war with him?"
5 And there was given unto him a mouth, speaking great
things and blasphemies, and power was given unto him to continue forty
and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God to
blaspheme His name, and His tabernacle, and them that dwell in Heaven. 7
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints and to overcome
them; and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and
nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose
names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb, slain from the
foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear:
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into
He that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.
Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
Wisdom of Solomon 9:13-18
13 "For what man is he that can know the counsel of God?
Or who can think what the will of the Lord is?
14 For the thoughts of mortal men are miserable,
and our devices are but uncertain.
15 For the corruptible body presseth down the soul,
and the earthy tabernacle weigheth down the mind that museth upon many
16 And hardly do we guess aright at things that are upon earth, and with
labor do we find the things that are before us;
but the things that are in heaven, who hath searched out?
17 And Thy counsel, who hath known,
except Thou give wisdom and send Thy holy Spirit from above?
18 For so the ways of them that lived on the earth were reformed,
and men were taught the things that are pleasing unto Thee, and were saved
Words of Wisdom -
A faithful man shall abound with blessings,
but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
