1 The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof,
the world and they that dwell therein.
2 For He hath founded it upon the seas,
and established it upon the floods.
3 Who shall ascend onto the hill of the LORD?
Or who shall stand in His Holy Place?
4 He that hath clean hands and a pure heart,
who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD,
and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 Such is the generation of them that seek Him,
that seek Thy face, O God of Jacob.

up, ye everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory?
The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates! Even lift them up, ye everlasting
And the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory?
The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory.
1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent
them two by two ahead of Him into every city and place whither He
Himself would come. 2 Therefore He said unto them,
"The harvest truly is great, but
the laborers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that
He would send forth laborers into His harvest. 3 Go your ways; behold,
I send you forth as lambs among wolves, 4 carrying neither purse, nor
pack, nor shoes; and salute no man by the way. 5 And into whatsoever
house ye enter, first say, `Peace be to this house.' 6 And if the son
of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it; if not, it shall
return to you again. 7 And in the same house remain, eating and
drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his
hire. Go not from house to house. 8 And into whatsoever city ye enter
and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. 9 And
heal the sick that are therein and say unto them, `The Kingdom of God
is come nigh unto you.' 10 But into whatsoever city ye enter and they
receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same and
say, 11 `Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do
wipe off against you. Notwithstanding, be ye sure of this: that the
Kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.' 12 But I say unto you that it
shall be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that city. 13
"Woe unto thee, Chorazin! Woe unto thee, Bethsaida! For if the
mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in
you, they would have a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth
and ashes. 14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the
Judgment than for you. 15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to
heaven, shall be thrust down to hell. 16 He that heareth you heareth
Me, and he that despiseth you despiseth Me, and he that despiseth Me
despiseth Him that sent Me."
17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, "Lord, even
the devils are subject unto us through Thy name." 18 And He said
"I beheld Satan as lightning
fall from heaven. 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on
serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and
nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Notwithstanding, in this
rejoice not that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice
because your names are written in Heaven."
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
1 But as to the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have
no need that I write unto you. 2 For you yourselves know perfectly that
the Day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they
are saying, "Peace and safety," then sudden destruction cometh
upon them as travail upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that Day should overtake
you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light and the children of
the day; we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us
not sleep, as do others, but let us watch and be sober. 7 For those who
sleep, sleep in the night; and those who are drunken are drunken in the
night. 8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the
breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our
Lord Jesus Christ 10 who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we
should live together with Him. 11 Therefore comfort yourselves together
and edify one another, even as also ye do.
13 The LORD standeth up to plead and standeth to
judge the people.
14 The LORD will enter into judgment with the elders of His people
and the princes thereof:
"For ye have eaten up the vineyard, and the spoil of the poor
is in your houses.
15 What mean ye that ye beat My people to pieces and grind the faces
of the poor?" saith the Lord GOD of hosts.
16 Moreover the LORD saith: "Because the
daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks
and wanton eyes,
walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their
17 therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head
of the daughters of Zion,
and the LORD will uncover their secret parts."
18 In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of
their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their hair nets and their
round ornaments like the moon, 19 the chains and the bracelets and the
spangled ornaments, 20 the bonnets and the ornaments of the legs, and
the headbands and the tablets and the earrings, 21 the rings and nose
jewels, 22 the changeable suits of apparel and the mantles and the
shawls and the crisping pins, 23 the mirrors and the fine linen, and the
hoods and the veils.
24 And it shall come to pass that instead of sweet
smell there shall be stench;
and instead of a girdle, a rent;
and instead of wellset hair, baldness;
and instead of a sash, a girding of sackcloth; and branding instead
25 Thy men shall fall by the sword,
and thy mighty in the war.
26 And her gates shall lament and mourn;
and she, being desolate, shall sit upon the ground.
Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 27:28
Mockery and reproach are from the proud;
but vengeance, as a lion, shall lie in wait for them.
