Isaiah 53:1-12
1. Who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of Jehovah been revealed?
2. For he shall grow up before him as a tender sapling, and as a root out of dry ground: he hath no form nor lordliness, and when we see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3. He is despised and left alone of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief, and like one from whom [men] hide their faces; despised, and we esteemed him not.
4. Surely *he* hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; and we, we did regard him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes we are healed.
6. All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way; and Jehovah hath laid upon him the iniquity of us all.
7. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, but he opened not his mouth; he was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and was as a sheep dumb before her shearers, and he opened not his mouth.
8. He was taken from oppression and from judgment; and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living; for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9. And [men] appointed his grave with the wicked, but he was with the rich in his death, because he had done no violence, neither was there guile in his mouth.
10. Yet it pleased Jehovah to bruise him; he hath subjected [him] to suffering. When thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see a seed, he shall prolong [his] days, and the pleasure of Jehovah shall prosper in his hand.
11. He shall see of [the fruit of] the travail of his soul, [and] shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant instruct many in righteousness; and *he* shall bear their iniquities.
12. Therefore will I assign him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong: because he hath poured out his soul unto death, and was reckoned with the transgressors; and he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Isaiah 54:1-17
1. Exult, thou barren, that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and shout for joy, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith Jehovah.
2. Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thy habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes.
3. For thou shalt spread abroad on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall possess nations, and they shall make desolate cities to be inhabited.
4. Fear not, for thou shalt not be ashamed; neither be thou confounded, for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.
5. For thy Maker is thy husband: Jehovah of hosts is his name, and thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: the God of the whole earth shall he be called.
6. For Jehovah hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and as a wife of youth, that hath been refused, saith thy God.
7. For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.
8. In the outpouring of wrath have I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting loving-kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith Jehovah, thy Redeemer.
9. For this is [as] the waters of Noah unto me, since I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth: so have I sworn that I will no more be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.
10. For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my loving-kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed, saith Jehovah, that hath mercy on thee.
11. [Thou] afflicted, tossed with tempest, not comforted! Behold, I will set thy stones in antimony, and lay thy foundations with sapphires;
12. and I will make thy battlements of rubies, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of precious stones.
13. And all thy children [shall be] taught of Jehovah, and great shall be the peace of thy children.
14. In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee.
15. Behold, they shall surely gather together, [but] not by me: whosoever gathereth together against thee shall fall because of thee.
16. Behold, it is I who have created the smith that bloweth in the fire of coal, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the destroyer to ravage.
17. No weapon that is prepared against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that riseth against thee in judgment, thou shalt condemn. This is the inheritance of the servants of Jehovah; and their righteousness is of me, saith Jehovah.

Psalms 113:1-4
1. Hallelujah! Praise, ye servants of Jehovah, praise the name of Jehovah.
2. Blessed be the name of Jehovah, from this time forth and for evermore!
3. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, let Jehovah's name be praised.
4. Jehovah is high above all nations, his glory above the heavens.

Proverbs 26:17-19
17. He that passing by vexeth himself with strife belonging not to him, is [like] one that taketh a dog by the ears.
18. As a madman who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death,
19. so is a man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am I not in sport?

Ephesians 3:1-21
1. For this reason *I* Paul, prisoner of the Christ Jesus for you nations,
2. (if indeed ye have heard of the administration of the grace of God which has been given to me towards you,
3. that by revelation the mystery has been made known to me, (according as I have written before briefly,
4. by which, in reading it, ye can understand my intelligence in the mystery of the Christ,)
5. which in other generations has not been made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in [the power of the] Spirit,
6. that [they who are of] the nations should be joint heirs, and a joint body, and joint partakers of [his] promise in Christ Jesus by the glad tidings;
7. of which I am become minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me, according to the working of his power.
8. To me, less than the least of all saints, has this grace been given, to announce among the nations the glad tidings of the unsearchable riches of the Christ,
9. and to enlighten all [with the knowledge of] what is the administration of the mystery hidden throughout the ages in God, who has created all things,
10. in order that now to the principalities and authorities in the heavenlies might be made known through the assembly the all-various wisdom of God,
11. according to [the] purpose of the ages, which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord,
12. in whom we have boldness and access in confidence by the faith of him.
13. Wherefore I beseech [you] not to faint through my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
14. For this reason I bow my knees to the Father [of our Lord Jesus Christ],
15. of whom every family in [the] heavens and on earth is named,
16. in order that he may give you according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with power by his Spirit in the inner man;
17. that the Christ may dwell, through faith, in your hearts, being rooted and founded in love,
18. in order that ye may be fully able to apprehend with all the saints what [is] the breadth and length and depth and height;
19. and to know the love of the Christ which surpasses knowledge; that ye may be filled [even] to all the fulness of God.
20. But to him that is able to do far exceedingly above all which we ask or think, according to the power which works in us,
21. to him be glory in the assembly in Christ Jesus unto all generations of the age of ages. Amen).
