Psalm 135

1 Praise ye the LORD, praise ye the name of the LORD!
Praise Him, O ye servants of the LORD!
2 Ye that stand in the house of the LORD,
in the courts of the house of our God,
3 praise the LORD, for the LORD is good;
sing praises unto His name, for it is pleasant.
4 For the LORD hath chosen Jacob for Himself,
and Israel for His peculiar treasure.

5 For I know that the LORD is great,
and that our Lord is above all gods.
6 Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did He in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and in all deep places.
7 He causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
He maketh lightnings for the rain; He bringeth the wind out of His treasuries.
8 He smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast.
9 He sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh and upon all his servants.
10 He smote great nations, and slew mighty kings:
11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan;
12 and gave their land as a heritage,
a heritage unto Israel His people.

13 Thy name, O LORD, endureth for ever,
and Thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations.
14 For the LORD will judge His people,
and He will repent Himself concerning His servants.

15 The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
16 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;
17 they have ears, but they hear not;
neither is there any breath in their mouths.
18 They that make them are like unto them;
so is every one that trusteth in them.
19 Bless the LORD, O house of Israel!
Bless the LORD, O house of Aaron!
20 Bless the LORD, O house of Levi!
Ye that fear the LORD, bless the LORD!
21 Blessed be the LORD out of Zion,
who dwelleth in Jerusalem! Praise ye the LORD!

Mark 14:26-50

26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out into the Mount of Olives. 27 And Jesus said unto them,

"All ye shall be offended because of Me this night, for it is written:
`I will smite the Shepherd,
and the sheep shall be scattered.'
28 But after I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee."

29 But Peter said unto Him, "Although all shall be offended, yet will I not." 30 And Jesus said unto him,

"Verily I say unto thee that this day, even in this night, before the cock crows twice, thou shalt deny Me thrice."

31 But Peter spoke the more vehemently, "If I should die with Thee, I will not deny Thee in any way." Likewise also said they all.

32 And they came to a place which is named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples,

"Sit ye here while I shall pray."

33 And He took with Him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed and very heavy of heart. 34 And He said unto them,

"My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death; tarry ye here, and watch."

35 And He went forward a little, and fell on the ground and prayed that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him. 36 And He said,

"Abba, Father, all things are possible unto Thee. Take away this cup from Me; nevertheless not what I will, but what Thou wilt."

37 And He came back and found them sleeping, and said unto Peter,

"Simon, sleepest thou? Couldest thou not watch one hour? 38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak."

39 And again He went away and prayed and spoke the same words. 40 And when He returned He found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy; neither knew they what to answer Him. 41 And He came the third time and said unto them,

"Sleep on now and take your rest. It is enough: the hour is come; behold, the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 Rise up; let us go. Lo, he that betrayeth Me is at hand."

43 And immediately, while He yet spoke came Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44 And he that betrayed Him had given them a sign, saying, "Whomever I shall kiss, that same is he. Take him and lead him away safely." 45 And as soon as he had come, he went straightway to Him and said, "Master, Master!" and kissed Him. 46 And they laid their hands on Him and took Him. 47 And one of those who stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest and cut off his ear. 48 And Jesus answered and said unto them,

"Have ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take Me? 49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took Me not. But the Scriptures must be fulfilled."

50 And they all forsook Him and fled.

Galatians 4:12-20

12 Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am, for I am as ye are. Ye have not injured me at all. 13 Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the Gospel unto you at the first. 14 And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected, but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. 15 Where is then the blessedness ye spoke of? For I bear you record that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes and have given them to me. 16 Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth? 17 They zealously seek after you, but for no good; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might seek after them. 18 But it is good to be zealously sought after, always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you. 19 My little children, over whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, 20 I desire to be present with you now and to change my tone; for I stand in doubt of you.

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 9:12

For man also knoweth not his time: As the fishes that are taken in an evil net, 
and as the birds that are caught in the snare, 
so are the sons of men snared in an evil time 
when it falleth suddenly upon them.
