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 your love is better than wine;
3. your anointing oils are fragrant; your name is oil poured out; therefore virgins love you.
4. Draw me after you; let us run. The king has brought me into his chambers. We will exult and rejoice in you; we will extol your love more than wine; rightly do they love you.
5. I am very dark, but lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem, like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon.
6. Do not gaze at me because I am dark, because the sun has looked upon me. My mother's sons were angry with me; they made me keeper of the vineyards, but my own vineyard I have not kept!
7. Tell me, you whom my soul loves, where you pasture your flock, where you make it lie down at noon; for why should I be like one who veils herself beside the flocks of your companions?
8. If you do not know, O most beautiful among women, follow in the tracks of the flock, and pasture your young goats beside the shepherds' tents.
9. I compare you, my love, to a mare among Pharaoh's chariots.
10. Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments, your neck with strings of jewels.
11. We will make for you ornaments of gold, studded with silver.
12. While the king was on his couch, my nard gave forth its fragrance.
13. My beloved is to me a sachet of myrrh that lies between my breasts.
14. My beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms in the vineyards of Engedi.
15. Behold, you are beautiful, my love; behold, you are beautiful; your eyes are doves.
16. Behold, you are beautiful, my beloved, truly delightful. Our couch is green;
17. the beams of our house are cedar; our rafters are pine.

Song of Solomon 2:1-17
1. I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.
2. As a lily among brambles, so is my love among the young women.
3. As an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. With great delight I sat in his shadow, and his fruit was sweet to my taste,
4. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
5. Sustain me with raisins; refresh me with apples, for I am sick with love.
6. His left hand is under my head, and his right hand embraces me!
7. I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the does of the field, that you not stir up or awaken love until it pleases.
8. The voice of my beloved! Behold, he comes, leaping over the mountains, bounding over the hills.
9. My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. Behold, there he stands behind our wall, gazing through the windows, looking through the lattice.
10. My beloved speaks and says to me: "Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away,
11. for behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone.
12. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.
13. The fig tree ripens its figs, and the vines are in blossom; they give forth fragrance. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away.
14. O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the crannies of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.
15. Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom."
16. My beloved is mine, and I am his; he grazes among the lilies.
17. Until the day breathes and the shadows flee, turn, my beloved, be like a gazelle or a young stag on cleft mountains.

Psalms 104:1-9
1. Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
2. covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent.
3. He lays the beams of his chambers on the waters; he makes the clouds his chariot; he rides on the wings of the wind;
4. he makes his messengers winds, his ministers a flaming fire.
5. He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved.
6. You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.
7. At your rebuke they fled; at the sound of your thunder they took to flight.
8. The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place that you appointed for them.
9. You set a boundary that they may not pass, so that they might not again cover the earth.

Proverbs 24:15-16
15. Lie not in wait as a wicked man against the dwelling of the righteous; do no violence to his home;
16. for the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity.

1 Corinthians 11:17-34
17. But in the following instructions I do not commend you, because when you come together it is not for the better but for the worse.
18. For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you. And I believe it in part,
19. for there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized.
20. When you come together, it is not the Lord's supper that you eat.
21. For in eating, each one goes ahead with his own meal. One goes hungry, another gets drunk.
22. What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you in this? No, I will not.
23. For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread,
24. and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me."
25. In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me."
26. For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
27. Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord.
28. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
29. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself.
30. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died.
31. But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged.
32. But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world.
33. So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another-
34. if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home- so that when you come together it will not be for judgment. About the other things I will give directions when I come.
