Psalm 54

1 Save me, O God, by Thy name,
and judge me by Thy strength.
2 Hear my prayer, O God;
give ear to the words of my mouth.
3 For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul;
they have not set God before them.

4 Behold, God is mine helper;
the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
5 He shall reward evil unto mine enemies;
cut them off in Thy truth.

6 I will freely sacrifice unto Thee;
I will praise Thy name, O LORD, for it is good.
7 For He hath delivered me out of all trouble,
and mine eye hath seen my desire upon mine enemies.

Luke 19:11-27

11 And as they heard these things, He added and spoke a parable, because He was nigh to Jerusalem and because they thought that the Kingdom of God should immediately appear. 12 He said therefore,

"A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. 13 And he called his ten servants and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, 'Make use of it till I come.' 14 But his citizens hated him and sent a message after him, saying, 'We will not have this man to reign over us.' 15 And it came to pass that when he had returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16 Then came the first, saying, 'Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.' 17 And he said unto him, 'Well done, thou good servant; because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.' 18 And the second came, saying, 'Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.' 19 And he said likewise to him, 'Be thou also over five cities.' 20 And another came, saying, 'Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid away in a napkin. 21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up what thou layest not down, and reapest what thou did not sow.' 22 And he said unto him, 'Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up what I laid not down and reaping what I did not sow. 23 Why then gavest not thou my money unto the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with interest?' 24 And he said unto them that stood by, 'Take from him the pound and give it to him that hath ten pounds.' 25 (And they said unto him, 'Lord, he hath ten pounds!') 26 'For I say unto you, that unto every one that hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken away from him. 27 But those mine enemies, who would not that I should reign over them, bring them hither and slay them before me.'"

Titus 2:11-15

11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world, 13 looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous for good works.

15 These things speak and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

Isaiah 66:18-24 

18 "For I know their works and their thoughts. It shall come that I will gather all nations and tongues, and they shall come and see My glory. 19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those of them who escape unto the nations: to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud who draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off who have not heard My fame, neither have seen My glory; and they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles. 20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations, upon horses and in chariots and in litters, and upon mules and upon swift beasts, to My holy mountain Jerusalem," saith the LORD, "as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD. 21 And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites," saith the LORD.

22 "For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me," saith the LORD,
"so shall your seed and your name remain.
23 And it shall come to pass that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another,
shall all flesh come to worship before Me," saith the LORD.
24 "And they shall go forth and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against Me;
for their worm shall not die,
neither shall their fire be quenched;
and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh."

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 31:1

Watching for riches consumeth the flesh, 
and the care thereof driveth away sleep.
