Psalm 33

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 nought;
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.

Matthew 12:22-37

22 Then was brought unto Him one possessed with a devil, blind and dumb; and He healed him, so that the blind and dumb both spoke and saw. 23 And all the people were amazed and said, "Is not this the Son of David?" 24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, "This fellow doth not cast out devils, except by Beelzebub, the prince of devils." 25 And Jesus knew their thoughts and said unto them,

"Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand. 26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand? 27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God is come unto you. 29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house and despoil his goods, unless he first bind the strong man? And then he will despoil his house.

30 "He that is not with Me is against Me, and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad. 31 Therefore I say unto you, all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men, but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. 33 Either make the tree good and his fruit good, or else make the tree corrupt and his fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by his fruit.

34 "O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things; and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned."

Acts 16:16-40

16 And it came to pass as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed by a spirit of divination met us. She had brought her masters much gain by soothsaying. 17 The same followed Paul and us, crying out and saying, "These men are the servants of the Most High God, who show unto us the way of salvation." 18 And this she did many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, "I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her." And he came out that same hour. 19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gain was gone, they caught Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace unto the rulers, 20 and brought them to the magistrates, saying, "These men, being Jews, trouble our city exceedingly, 21 and teach customs which are not lawful for us to receive nor to observe, being Romans." 22 And the multitude rose up together against them, and the magistrates rent off their clothes and commanded that they be beaten. 23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely. 24 He, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison and made their feet fast in the stocks.

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God, and the prisoners heard them. 26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's bands were loosed. 27 And the keeper of the prison, awakening out of his sleep and seeing the prison doors open, drew out his sword and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had fled. 28 But Paul cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Do thyself no harm, for we are all here!" 29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling and fell down before Paul and Silas, 30 and brought them out and said, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" 31 And they said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house." 32 And they spoke unto him the Word of the Lord, and to all who were in his house. 33 And he took them that same hour of the night and washed their stripes, and was baptized, he and all his, straightway. 34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

35 And when it was day, the magistrates sent the sergeants, saying, "Let those men go." 36 And the keeper of the prison told these words to Paul, saying, "The magistrates have sent to let you go; now therefore depart and go in peace." 37 But Paul said unto them, "They have beaten us openly, uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison. And now do they thrust us out privily? Nay verily! Let them come themselves and fetch us out." 38 And the sergeants told these words unto the magistrates, and they feared when they heard that they were Romans. 39 And they came and besought them and brought them out, and entreated them to depart out of the city. 40 And they went out of the prison and entered into the house of Lydia. And when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them and departed.

Genesis 46:1-7, 28-34

1 And Israel took his journey with all that he had and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac. 2 And God spoke unto Israel in the visions of the night and said, "Jacob, Jacob." And he said, "Here am I." 3 And He said, "I am God, the God of thy father. Fear not to go down into Egypt, for I will there make of thee a great nation. 4 I will go down with thee into Egypt, and I will also surely bring thee up again; and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes." 5 And Jacob rose up from Beersheba; and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him. 6 And they took their cattle and their goods which they had gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed with him: 7 his sons and his sons' sons with him, his daughters and his sons' daughters; and all his seed brought he with him into Egypt.

28 And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph to direct his face unto Goshen, and they came into the land of Goshen. 29 And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his father in Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while. 30 And Israel said unto Joseph, "Now let me die, since I have seen thy face, because thou art yet alive." 31 And Joseph said unto his brethren and unto his father's house, "I will go up and show Pharaoh, and say unto him, `My brethren and my father's house, who were in the land of Canaan, have come unto me. 32 And the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks and their herds, and all that they have.' 33 And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you and shall say, `What is your occupation?' 34 that ye shall say, `Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we and also our fathers,' that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians."

Words of Wisdom - 1 Chronicles 22:19a

19 Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God.
