According to the Common Calendar
1 Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God;
defend me from them that rise up against me.
2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity,
and save me from bloody men.
3 For lo, they lie in wait for my soul;
the mighty are gathered against me, not for my transgression, nor
for my sin, O LORD.
4 They run and prepare themselves though I am not at fault.
Awake to help me, and behold!
5 Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of
Israel, awake to visit all the heathen;
be not merciful to any wicked transgressors.
6 They return at evening;
they make a noise like a dog and go round about the city.
7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth; swords are in their lips;
"For who," say they, "doth hear?"
8 But Thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them;
Thou shalt hold all the heathen in derision.
9 Because of his strength, I will wait upon Thee;
for God is my defense.
10 The God of my mercy shall go before me;
God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.
11 Slay them not, lest my people forget;
scatter them by Thy power and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
12 For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips, let them
even be taken in their pride,
and for the cursing and lying which they speak.
13 Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be;
and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the
14 And at evening let them return,
and let them make a noise like a dog and go round about the city.
15 Let them wander up and down for meat,
and grumble if they be not satisfied.
16 But I will sing of Thy power, yea, I will sing
aloud of Thy mercy in the morning;
for Thou hast been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble.
17 Unto Thee, O my Strength, will I sing;
for God is my defense, and the God of my mercy.
20 And they watched Him and sent forth spies, who should feign
themselves to be just men, that they might take hold of His words and so they
might deliver Him unto the power and authority of the governor. 21 And they
asked Him, saying, "Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly,
neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly. 22
Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar or no?" 23 But He perceived
their craftiness and said unto them,
"Why tempt ye Me? 24 Show
Me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it?"
They answered and said, "Caesar's." 25 And He said
"Render therefore unto
Caesar the things which are Caesar's, and unto God the things which are
26 And they could not take hold of His words before the people.
And they marveled at His answer and held their peace.
1 Therefore we ought to give even more earnest heed to
the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them
slip. 2 For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every
transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward, 3
how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the
first began to be spoken by the Lord and was confirmed unto us by those
who heard Him, 4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and
wonders and with divers miracles and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according
to His own will?
5 For it was not unto angels that He put in subjection
the world to come, of which we speak. 6 But one at a certain place
"What is man, that Thou art mindful of him?
Or the son of man, that Thou visitest him?
7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels;
Thou crowned him with glory and honor
and set him over the works of Thy hands.
8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet."
For in putting all in subjection under him, He left
nothing that is not put under him. But now as yet we see not all things
put under him. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the
angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor, that He
by the grace of God should taste death for every man. 10 For it became
Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing
many sons unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation perfect
through sufferings. 11 For both He that sanctifieth and they who are
sanctified are all of One, for which cause He is not ashamed to call
them brethren, 12 saying,
"I will declare Thy name unto My brethren;
in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto Thee."
13 And again,
"I will put My trust in Him."
"Behold I and the children whom God hath given
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh
and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same, that through
death He might destroy him that had the power of death -- that is, the
devil -- 15 and deliver those who all their lifetime were subject to
bondage through fear of death. 16 For verily He took not on Himself the
nature of angels, but He took on Him the seed of Abraham. 17 Therefore
in all things it behooved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He
might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to
God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. 18 For in that
He Himself hath suffered, being tempted, He is able to succor those who
1 "Run ye to and fro through the streets of
and see now and know,
and seek in the broad places thereof if ye can find a man,
if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth, and
I will pardon it.
2 And though they say, `The LORD liveth,'
surely they swear falsely."
3 O LORD, are not Thine eyes upon the truth?
Thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved;
Thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive
They have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to
4 Therefore I said, "Surely these are poor, they are foolish;
for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their
5 I will get me unto the great men,
and will speak unto them;
for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their
But these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.
6 Therefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them,
and a wolf of the evenings shall despoil them; a leopard shall watch
over their cities.
Every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces,
because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are
7 "How shall I pardon thee for this?
Thy children have forsaken Me, and sworn by them that are no gods.
When I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery
and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses.
8 They were as fed horses in the morning;
every one neighed after his neighbor's wife.
9 Shall I not visit for these things?" saith the LORD.
"And shall not My soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
10 "Go ye up upon her walls and destroy, but
make not a full end;
take away her battlements, for they are not the LORD'S.
11 For the house of Israel and the house of Judah
have dealt very treacherously against Me," saith the LORD.
12 They have belied the LORD, and said, "It is
neither shall evil come upon us, neither shall we see sword nor
13 And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them;
thus shall it be done unto them."
14 Therefore, thus saith the LORD God of hosts: "Because ye
speak this word,
behold, I will make My words in thy mouth fire, and this people
wood, and it shall devour them.
15 Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from afar,
O house of Israel," saith the LORD.
"It is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation,
a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what
16 Their quiver is as an open sepulcher;
they are all mighty men.
17 And they shall eat up thine harvest and thy bread, which thy sons
and thy daughters should eat;
they shall eat up thy flocks and thine herds;
they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees.
They shall impoverish thy fortified cities, wherein thou trusted,
with the sword.
18 "Nevertheless in those days," saith the
LORD, "I will not make a full end with you. 19 And it shall come to
pass when ye shall say, `Why doeth the LORD our God all these things
unto us?' Then shalt thou answer them, `As ye have forsaken Me and
served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land
that is not yours.'
Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 23:17
Let not thine heart envy sinners,
but be thou in fear of the LORD all the day long.
