Authorized VersionTM NAVTM)
According to the Common Calendar
1 Why standest Thou afar off, O LORD?
Why hidest Thou Thyself in times of trouble?
2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the
let them be caught in the devices that they have
3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire,
and blesseth the covetous whom the LORD
4 The wicked, in the pride of his countenance,
will not seek after God;
God is not in all his thoughts.
5 His ways are always grievous; Thy judgments are
far above, out of his sight;
as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
6 He hath said in his heart, "I shall not be
for I shall never be in adversity."
7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and
under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the
villages; in secret places doth he murder the
his eyes are privily set against the poor.
9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den;
he lieth in wait to catch the poor;
he doth catch the poor when he draweth him into
10 He croucheth and humbleth himself,
that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
11 He hath said in his heart, "God hath
He hideth His face, He will never see it."
12 Arise, O LORD! O God, lift up Thine hand!
Forget not the humble.
13 Why doth the wicked contemn God?
He hath said in his heart, "Thou wilt not
14 But Thou hast seen it,
for Thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite
it with Thy hand.
The poor committeth himself unto Thee;
Thou art the helper of the fatherless.
15 Break Thou the arm of the wicked and the
seek out his wickedness until Thou find none.
16 The LORD is King for ever and ever;
the heathen have perished out of His land.
17 LORD, Thou hast heard the desire of the
Thou wilt prepare their heart, Thou wilt cause
Thine ear to hear,
18 to judge the fatherless and the oppressed,
that the man of the earth may no more oppress.
39 And He spoke a parable unto them:
"Can the blind lead
the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch? 40 The disciple is
not above his master, but every one that is perfect shall be as his
master. 41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's
eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 42 Or how
canst thou say to thy brother, `Brother, let me pull out the mote that
is in thine eye,' when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in
thine own eye? Thou hypocrite! Cast out first the beam out of thine
own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is
in thy brother's eye.
43 "For a good tree
bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring
forth good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For
from thorns men do not gather figs, nor from a bramble bush gather
they grapes. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart
bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil
treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil; for of the
abundance of his heart his mouth speaketh.
46 "And why call ye
Me, `Lord, Lord,' and do not the things which I say? 47 Whosoever
cometh to Me, and heareth My sayings and doeth them, I will show you
to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man who built a house and dug deep
and laid the foundation on a rock; and when the flood arose, the
stream beat vehemently upon that house and could not shake it, for it
was founded upon a rock. 49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is
like a man that built a house without a foundation upon the earth,
against which the stream beat vehemently, and immediately it fell. And
the ruin of that house was great."
13 He hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath
translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son, 14 in whom we have redemption
through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins. 15 He is the image of the
invisible God, the firstborn of every creature. 16 For by Him were all things
created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether
they be thrones or dominions or principalities or powers: all things were
created by Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and by Him all
things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church. He is the
beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He might have the
preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell,
20 and having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all
things unto Himself -- by Him, I say, whether they be things on earth or things
Job 11:1-6, 13-20
1 Then answered Zophar the Naamathite and said:
2 "Should not the multitude of words be answered?
And should a man full of talk be justified?}
3 Should thy lies make men hold their peace?
And when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?
4 For thou hast said, 'My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in Thine
5 But oh, that God would speak and open His lips against thee,
6 and that He would show thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are
double to that which is!
Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity
13 "If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out
thine hands toward Him,
14 if iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not
wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.
15 For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt
be steadfast and shalt not fear, 16 because thou shalt forget thy
misery, and remember it as waters that pass away.
17 And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday;
thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
18 And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope;
yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in
19 Also thou shalt lie down,
and none shall make thee afraid;
yea, many shall make suit unto thee.
20 But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape;
and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost."
Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 19:18
Chasten thy son while there is hope,
and let not thy soul spare him for his crying.
