Psalm chapter 73

1
Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
2
But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
3
For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4
For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.
5
They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
6
Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
7
Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
8
They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
9
They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
10
Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
11
And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
12
Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
13
Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
14
For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
15
If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.
16
When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
17
Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
18
Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.
19
How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
20
As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
21
Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
22
So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
23
Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
24
Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
25
Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
26
My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
27
For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
28
But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

Psalm chapter 74

1
O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?
2
Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.
3
Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
4
Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.
5
A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.
6
But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.
7
They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.
8
They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.
9
We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.
10
O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?
11
Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck it out of thy bosom.
12
For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
13
Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
14
Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
15
Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers.
16
The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
17
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.
18
Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.
19
O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.
20
Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
21
O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name.
22
Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.
23
Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.

Psalm chapter 75

1
Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
2
When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
3
The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
4
I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
5
Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
6
For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7
But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
8
For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.
9
But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10
All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

Psalm chapter 76

1
In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.
2
In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.
3
There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.
4
Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.
5
The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.
6
At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
7
Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
8
Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
9
When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.
10
Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.
11
Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
12
He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.

Psalm chapter 77

1
I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.
2
In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.
3
I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
4
Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5
I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
6
I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
7
Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
8
Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?
9
Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
10
And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
11
I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
12
I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
13
Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
14
Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.
15
Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
16
The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
17
The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.
18
The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
19
Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
20
Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Luke chapter 9

1
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
2
And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.
3
And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.
4
And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.
5
And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.
6
And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.
7
Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the dead;
8
And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again.
9
And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him.
10
And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida.
11
And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.
12
And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place.
13
But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people.
14
For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company.
15
And they did so, and made them all sit down.
16
Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude.
17
And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.
18
And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?
19
They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.
20
He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.
21
And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing;
22
Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.
23
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
24
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
25
For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
26
For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.
27
But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
28
And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
29
And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
30
And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:
31
Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
32
But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.
33
And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.
34
While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.
35
And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
36
And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.
37
And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him.
38
And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.
39
And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him.
40
And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.
41
And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.
42
And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.
43
And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples,
44
Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men.
45
But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.
46
Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.
47
And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him,
48
And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.
49
And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.
50
And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
51
And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,
52
And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
53
And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.
54
And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?
55
But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
56
For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
57
And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
58
And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
59
And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
60
Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
61
And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
62
And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
