Song of Solomon 1:1-17
1. The Song of songs, which is Solomons.
2. Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; For thy love is better than wine.
3. Thine oils have a goodly fragrance; Thy name is as oil poured forth; Therefore do the virgins love thee.
4. Draw me; we will run after thee: The king hath brought me into his chambers; We will be glad and rejoice in thee; We will make mention of thy love more than of wine: Rightly do they love thee.
5. I am black, but comely, Oh ye daughters of Jerusalem, As the tents of Kedar, As the curtains of Solomon.
6. Look not upon me, because I am swarthy, Because the sun hath scorched me. My mothers sons were incensed against me; They made me keeper of the vineyards; But mine own vineyard have I not kept.
7. Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, Where thou feedest thy flock, Where thou makest it to rest at noon: For why should I be as one that is veiled Beside the flocks of thy companions?
8. If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, Go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock, And feed thy kids beside the shepherds tents.
9. I have compared thee, O my love, To a steed in Pharaohs chariots.
10. Thy cheeks are comely with plaits of hair, Thy neck with strings of jewels.
11. We will make thee plaits of gold With studs of silver.
12. While the king sat at his table, My spikenard sent forth its fragrance.
13. My beloved is unto me as a bundle of myrrh, That lieth betwixt my breasts.
14. My beloved is unto me as a cluster of henna-flowers In the vineyards of En-gedi.
15. Behold, thou art fair, my love; Behold thou art fair; Thine eyes are as doves.
16. Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant: Also our couch is green.
17. The beams of our house are cedars, And our rafters are firs.

Song of Solomon 2:1-17
1. I am a rose of Sharon, A lily of the valleys.
2. As a lily among thorns, So is my love among the daughters.
3. As the apple-tree among the trees of the wood, So is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, And his fruit was sweet to my taste.
4. He brought me to the banqueting-house, And his banner over me was love.
5. Stay ye me with raisins, refresh me with apples; For I am sick from love.
6. His left hand is under my head, And his right hand doth embrace me.
7. I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, By the roes, or by the hinds of the field, That ye stir not up, nor awake my love, Until he please.
8. The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh, Leaping upon the mountains, Skipping upon the hills.
9. My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: Behold, he standeth behind our wall; He looketh in at the windows; He glanceth through the lattice.
10. My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
11. For, lo, the winter is past; The rain is over and gone;
12. The flowers appear on the earth; The time of the singing of birds is come, And the voice of the turtle-dove is heard in our land;
13. The fig-tree ripeneth her green figs, And the vines are in blossom; They give forth their fragrance. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
14. O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, In the covert of the steep place, Let me see thy countenance, Let me hear thy voice; For sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.
15. Take us the foxes, the little foxes, That spoil the vineyards; For our vineyards are in blossom.
16. My beloved is mine, and I am his: He feedeth his flock among the lilies.
17. Until the day be cool, and the shadows flee away, Turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart Upon the mountains of Bether.

Psalms 104:1-9
1. Bless Jehovah, O my soul. O Jehovah my God, thou art very great; Thou art clothed with honor and majesty:
2. Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment; Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain;
3. Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters; Who maketh the clouds his chariot; Who walketh upon the wings of the wind;
4. Who maketh winds his messengers; Flames of fire his ministers;
5. Who laid the foundations of the earth, That it should not be moved for ever.
6. Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a vesture; The waters stood above the mountains.
7. At thy rebuke they fled; At the voice of thy thunder they hasted away
8. (The mountains rose, the valleys sank down) Unto the place which thou hadst founded for them.
9. Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; That they turn not again to cover the earth.

Proverbs 24:15-16
15. Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the habitation of the righteous; Destroy not his resting-place:
16. For a righteous man falleth seven times, and riseth up again; But the wicked are overthrown by calamity.

1 Corinthians 11:17-34
17. But in giving you this charge, I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better but for the worse.
18. For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that divisions exist among you; and I partly believe it.
19. For there must be also factions among you, that they that are approved may be made manifest among you.
20. When therefore ye assemble yourselves together, it is not possible to eat the Lords supper:
21. for in your eating each one taketh before other his own supper; and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
22. What, have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and put them to shame that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you? In this I praise you not.
23. For I received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was betrayed took bread;
24. and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, This is my body, which is for you: this do in remembrance of me.
25. In like manner also the cup, after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
26. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink the cup, ye proclaim the Lords death till he come.
27. Wherefore whosoever shall eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
28. But let a man prove himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup.
29. For he that eateth and drinketh, eateth and drinketh judgment unto himself, if he discern not the body.
30. For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep.
31. But if we discerned ourselves, we should not be judged.
32. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
33. Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, wait one for another.
34. If any man is hungry, let him eat at home; that your coming together be not unto judgment. And the rest will I set in order whensoever I come.
