Psalm 63

1 O God, Thou art my God;
early will I seek Thee.
My soul thirsteth for Thee,
my flesh longeth for Thee, in a dry and thirsty land where no water is,
2 to see Thy power and Thy glory as I have seen Thee in the sanctuary.
3 Because Thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise Thee.
4 Thus will I bless Thee while I live; I will lift up my hands in Thy name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness
and my mouth shall praise Thee with joyful lips,
6 when I remember Thee upon my bed,
and meditate on Thee in the night watches.
7 Because Thou hast been my help,
therefore in the shadow of Thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul followeth hard after Thee;
Thy right hand upholdeth me.

9 But those that seek my soul to destroy it shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall fall by the sword; they shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by Him shall glory,
but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.

Matthew 21:1-11

1 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage unto the Mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, 2 saying unto them,

"Go into the village opposite you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them unto Me. 3 And if any man say aught unto you, ye shall say, `The Lord hath need of them,' and straightway he will send them."

4 All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

5 "Tell ye the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, thy King cometh unto thee,
meek and sitting upon an ass, and a colt, the foal of an ass.'"

6 And the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. 7 And they brought the ass and the colt and put on them their clothes, and they set Him thereon. 8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; and others cut down branches from the trees and strewed them in the way. 9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried out, saying,

"Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!"

10 And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, "Who is this?" 11 And the multitude said, "This is Jesus, the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee."

Romans 5:12-21

12 Therefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, so death passed onto all men, for all have sinned. 13 For until the law, sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the similitude of Adam's transgression, he being the figure of Him that was to come. 15 But not as the offense, so also is the free gift. For if through the offense of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one Man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one who sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is for many offenses unto justification. 17 For if by one man's offense death reigned by one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by One, Jesus Christ.

18 Therefore as by the offense of one, judgment to condemnation came upon all men, even so by the righteousness of One, the free gift unto justification of life came upon all men. 19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of One shall many be made righteous. 20 Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound, 21 that, as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Numbers 6:22-27

22 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 23 "Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, `In this way ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them: 

24 The LORD bless thee and keep thee; 
25 the LORD make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee; 
26 the LORD lift up His countenance upon thee, 
and give thee peace.' 

27 "And they shall put My name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them."

Numbers 9:1-2, 14-23

1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses in the Wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying, 2 "Let the children of Israel also keep the Passover at his appointed season.

14 And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the Passover unto the LORD, according to the ordinance of the Passover and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do. Ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger and for him that was born in the land.'"

15 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony; and at evening there was upon the tabernacle, as it were, the appearance of fire until the morning. 16 So it was always: the cloud covered it by day and the appearance of fire by night. 17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed; and in the place where the cloud stood still, there the children of Israel pitched their tents. 18 At the commandment of the LORD the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the LORD they pitched camp. As long as the cloud stayed upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents; 19 and when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the LORD and journeyed not. 20 And so it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle, according to the commandment of the LORD they stayed in their tents, and according to the commandment of the LORD they journeyed. 21 And so it was, when the cloud tarried from evening unto the morning, and the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they journeyed. Whether it was by day or by night that the cloud was taken up, they journeyed. 22 Or whether it was two days or a month or a year that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the children of Israel remained in their tents and journeyed not; but when it was taken up, they journeyed. 23 At the commandment of the LORD they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the LORD they journeyed. They kept the charge of the LORD, at the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 7:23 

Hast thou children? Instruct them, 
and bow down their neck from their youth.
