Song of Solomon 1:1-17
1. The song of songs, which is Solomon's.
2. Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; For thy love is better than wine.
3. Thine ointments savour sweetly; Thy name is an ointment 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 remember thy love more than wine. They love thee uprightly.
5. I am black, but comely, daughters of Jerusalem, As the tents of Kedar, As the curtains of Solomon.
6. Look not upon me, because I am black; Because the sun hath looked upon me. My mother's children were angry with me: They made me keeper of the vineyards; Mine own vineyard have I not kept.
7. Tell me, 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 veiled Beside the flocks of thy companions?
8. If thou know not, thou fairest among women, Go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock, And feed thy kids beside the shepherds' booths.
9. I compare thee, my love, To a steed in Pharaoh's chariots.
10. Thy cheeks are comely with bead-rows, Thy neck with ornamental chains.
11. We will make thee bead-rows of gold With studs of silver.
12. While the king is at his table, My spikenard sendeth forth its fragrance.
13. A bundle of myrrh is my beloved unto me; He shall pass the night between my breasts.
14. My beloved is unto me a cluster of henna-flowers In the vineyards of Engedi.
15. Behold, thou art fair, my love; Behold, thou art fair: thine eyes are doves.
16. Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant; Also our bed is green.
17. The beams of our houses are cedars, Our rafters are cypresses.

Song of Solomon 2:1-17
1. I am a narcissus of Sharon, A lily of the valleys.
2. As the 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: In his shadow have I rapture and sit down; And his fruit is sweet to my taste.
4. He hath brought me to the house of wine, And his banner over me is love.
5. Sustain ye me with raisin-cakes, Refresh me with apples; For I am sick of love.
6. His left hand is under my head, And his right hand doth embrace me.
7. I charge you, daughters of Jerusalem, By the gazelles, or by the hinds of the field, That ye stir not up, nor awake [my] love, till 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 gazelle or a young hart. Behold, he standeth behind our wall, He looketh in through the windows, Glancing through the lattice.
10. My beloved spake and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
11. For behold, the winter is past, The rain is over, it is gone:
12. The flowers appear on the earth; The time of singing is come, And the voice of the turtle-dove is heard in our land;
13. The fig-tree melloweth her winter figs, And the vines in bloom give forth [their] fragrance. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away!
14. My dove, in the clefts of the rock, In the covert of the precipice, 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 bloom.
16. My beloved is mine, and I am his; He feedeth [his flock] among the lilies,
17. Until the day dawn, and the shadows flee away. Turn, my beloved: be thou like a gazelle or a young hart, Upon the mountains of Bether.

Psalms 104:1-9
1. Bless Jehovah, O my soul! Jehovah my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with majesty and splendour;
2. Covering thyself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent-curtain;
3. Who layeth the beams of his upper chambers in the waters, who maketh clouds his chariot, who walketh upon the wings of the wind;
4. Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flame of fire.
5. He laid the earth upon its foundations: it shall not be removed for ever.
6. Thou hadst covered 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, unto the place which thou hadst founded for them;
9. Thou hast set a bound which 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 dwelling of the righteous; lay not waste his resting-place.
16. For the righteous falleth seven times, and riseth up again; but the wicked stumble into disaster.

1 Corinthians 11:17-34
17. But [in] prescribing [to you on] this [which I now enter on], I do not praise, [namely,] that ye come together, not for the better, but for the worse.
18. For first, when ye come together in assembly, I hear there exist divisions among you, and I partly give credit [to it].
19. For there must also be sects among you, that the approved may become manifest among you.
20. When ye come therefore together into one place, it is not to eat [the] Lord's supper.
21. For each one in eating takes his *own* supper before [others], and one is hungry and another drinks to excess.
22. Have ye not then houses for eating and drinking? or do ye despise the assembly of God, and put to shame them who have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you? In this [point] I do not praise.
23. For *I* received from the Lord, that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus, in the night in which he was delivered up, took bread,
24. and having given thanks broke [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 having supped, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as often as ye shall drink [it], in remembrance of me.
26. For as often as ye shall eat this bread, and drink the cup, ye announce the death of the Lord, until he come.
27. So that whosoever shall eat the bread, or drink the cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty in respect of the body and of the blood of the Lord.
28. But let a man prove himself, and thus eat of the bread, and drink of the cup.
29. For [the] eater and drinker eats and drinks judgment to himself, not distinguishing the body.
30. On this account many among you [are] weak and infirm, and a good many are fallen asleep.
31. But if we judged ourselves, so were we not judged.
32. But being judged, we are disciplined of [the] Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
33. So that, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, wait for one another.
34. If any one be hungry, let him eat at home, that ye may not come together for judgment. But the other things, whenever I come, I will set in order.
