Psalm 125

1 They that trust in the LORD shall be as Mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about His people from henceforth, even for ever.
3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the allotment of the righteous,
lest the righteous put forth their hands to do iniquity.

4 Do good, O LORD, unto those that are good
and to them that are upright in their hearts.
5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them away with the workers of iniquity;
but peace shall be upon Israel.

Mark 12:18-27

18 Then came unto Him the Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection. And they asked Him, saying, 19 "Master, Moses wrote unto us that if a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, then his brother should take his wife and raise up seed unto his brother. 20 Now there were seven brethren; and the first took a wife, and dying, left no seed. 21 And the second took her and died, neither leaving any seed. And the third likewise. 22 So the seven had her and left no seed. Last of all the woman died also. 23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be, for all seven had her for a wife?" 24 And Jesus answering, said unto them,

"Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the Scriptures, neither the power of God? 25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels who are in Heaven. 26 And concerning the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spoke unto him, saying, `I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? 27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. Ye therefore do greatly err."

2 Corinthians 13:7-14

7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil, not that we should appear to be approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. 8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth. 9 For we are glad when we are weak and ye are strong. And this also we wish: even your perfection. 10 Therefore I write these things being absent, lest, were I present, I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me for edification, and not for destruction.

11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. 13 All the saints salute you.

14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all.


1 Kings 9:1-9

1 And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the house of the LORD and the king's house, and all Solomon's desire which he was pleased to do, 2 that the LORD appeared to Solomon the second time, as He had appeared unto him at Gibeon. 3 And the LORD said unto him, "I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication that thou hast made before Me. I have hallowed this house which thou hast built, to put My name there forever; and Mine eyes and Mine heart shall be there perpetually. 4 And if thou wilt walk before Me as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep My statutes and My judgments, 5 then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, `There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel.' 6 But if ye shall at all turn from following Me, ye or your children, and will not keep My commandments and My statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods and worship them, 7 then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them, and this house which I have hallowed for My name will I cast out of My sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people. 8 And at this house, which is high, every one who passeth by it shall be astonished and shall hiss; and they shall say, `Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land and to this house?' 9 And they shall answer, `Because they forsook the LORD their God who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshiped them and served them; therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.'"

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 9:7-8

Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; 
for God now accepteth thy works. 
Let thy garments be always white, 
and let thy head lack no ointment.
