Psalm 6

1 O LORD, rebuke me not in Thine anger,
neither chasten me in Thy hot displeasure.
2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am weak;
O LORD, heal me, for my bones are vexed.
3 My soul is also sore vexed,
but Thou, O LORD, how long?

4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul!
O save me for Thy mercies' sake!
5 For in death there is no remembrance of Thee;
in the grave who shall give Thee thanks?

6 I am weary with my groaning;
all the night I make my bed to swim, I water my couch with my tears.
7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief;
it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity,
for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9 The LORD hath heard my supplication;
the LORD will receive my prayer.
10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sorely vexed;
let them turn back and be put to shame suddenly.

Luke 5:27-39

27 And after these things He went forth and saw a publican named Levi, sitting in the customhouse, and He said unto him,

"Follow Me."

28 And he left all, rose up, and followed Him.

29 And Levi made Him a great feast in his own house, and there was a great company of publicans and of others who sat down with them. 30 But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against His disciples, saying, "Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?" 31 And Jesus answering said unto them,

"They that are whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."

33 And they said unto Him, "Why do the disciples of John fast often and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees, but thine eat and drink?" 34 And He said unto them,

"Can ye make the attendants of the bridechamber fast while the bridegroom is with them? 35 But the days will come when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days."

36 And He spoke also a parable unto them:

"No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; otherwise, both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old. 37 And no man putteth new wine into old wineskins; else the new wine will burst the wineskins and be spilled, and the wineskins shall perish. 38 But new wine must be put into new wineskins, and both are preserved. 39 No man also, having drunk old wine, straightway desireth new; for he saith, `The old is better.'"

Philippians 3:17-4:3

17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark those who so walk, as ye have us for an example. 18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often and now tell you even with weeping, as the enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their end is destruction, their God is their belly, and their glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) 20 For our abiding is in Heaven, from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself.

1 Therefore, my dearly beloved and longedfor brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved. 2 I beseech Euodias and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord. 3 And I entreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women who labored with me in the Gospel, with Clement also and with my other fellow laborers, whose names are in the Book of Life.

Job 6:1-10, 24-30

1 But Job answered and said:

2 "Oh that my grief were thoroughly weighed,
and my calamity laid in the balances together!
3 For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea;
therefore my words are swallowed up.
4 For the arrows of the Almighty are within me; the poison thereof drinketh up my spirit;
the terrors of God set themselves in array against me.
5 Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass?
Or loweth the ox over his fodder?
6 Can that which is unsavory be eaten without salt?
Or is there any taste in the white of an egg?
7 The things that my soul refused to touch
are as my distressing meat.

8 "Oh that I might have my request,
and that God would grant me the thing that I long for:
9 even that it would please God to destroy me,
that He would let loose His hand and cut me off!
10 Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow.
Let Him not spare, for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.

24 "Teach me, and I will hold my tongue;
and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.
25 How forceful are right words!
But what doth your arguing reprove?
26 Do ye imagine to reprove words,
and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind?
27 Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless,
and ye dig a pit for your friend.

28 "Now therefore be content, look upon me;
for it is evident unto you if I lie.
29 Return, I pray you, let there be no iniquity;
yea, return again; my righteousness is in it.
30 Is there iniquity on my tongue?
Cannot my taste discern perverse things?

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 11:5

As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones grow in the womb of her that is with child, 
even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
