Jeremiah 9:1-26
1. Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!
2. Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging-place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they are all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men.
3. And they bend their tongue, as it were their bow, for falsehood; and they are grown strong in the land, but not for truth: for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith Jehovah.
4. Take ye heed every one of his neighbor, and trust ye not in any brother; for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbor will go about with slanders.
5. And they will deceive every one his neighbor, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies; they weary themselves to commit iniquity.
6. Thy habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith Jehovah.
7. Therefore thus saith Jehovah of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how else should I do, because of the daughter of my people?
8. Their tongue is a deadly arrow; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, but in his heart he layeth wait for him.
9. Shall I not visit them for these things? saith Jehovah; shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
10. For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the pastures of the wilderness a lamentation, because they are burned up, so that none passeth through; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle; both the birds of the heavens and the beasts are fled, they are gone.
11. And I will make Jerusalem heaps, a dwelling-place of jackals; and I will make the cities of Judah a desolation, without inhabitant.
12. Who is the wise man, that may understand this? and who is he to whom the mouth of Jehovah hath spoken, that he may declare it? wherefore is the land perished and burned up like a wilderness, so that none passeth through?
13. And Jehovah saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein,
14. but have walked after the stubbornness of their own heart, and after the Baalim, which their fathers taught them;
15. therefore thus saith Jehovah of hosts, the God of Israel, Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.
16. I will scatter them also among the nations, whom neither they nor their fathers have known; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them.
17. Thus saith Jehovah of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for the skilful women, that they may come:
18. and let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.
19. For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we ruined! we are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken the land, because they have cast down our dwellings.
20. Yet hear the word of Jehovah, O ye women, and let your ear receive the word of his mouth; and teach your daughters wailing, and every one her neighbor lamentation.
21. For death is come up into our windows, it is entered into our palaces; to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the streets.
22. Speak, Thus saith Jehovah, The dead bodies of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman; and none shall gather them.
23. Thus saith Jehovah, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches;
24. but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he hath understanding, and knoweth me, that I am Jehovah who exerciseth lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith Jehovah.
25. Behold, the days come, saith Jehovah, that I will punish all them that are circumcised in their uncircumcision:
26. Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab, and all that have the corners of their hair cut off, that dwell in the wilderness; for all the nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in heart.

Jeremiah 10:1-25
1. Hear ye the word which Jehovah speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
2. thus saith Jehovah, Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the nations are dismayed at them.
3. For the customs of the peoples are vanity; for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman with the axe.
4. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
5. They are like a palm-tree, of turned work, and speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.
6. There is none like unto thee, O Jehovah; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.
7. Who should not fear thee, O King of the nations? for to thee doth it appertain; forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their royal estate, there is none like unto thee.
8. But they are together brutish and foolish: the instruction of idols! it is but a stock.
9. There is silver beaten into plates, which is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the artificer and of the hands of the goldsmith; blue and purple for their clothing; they are all the work of skilful men.
10. But Jehovah is the true God; he is the living God, and an everlasting King: at his wrath the earth trembleth, and the nations are not able to abide his indignation.
11. Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, these shall perish from the earth, and from under the heavens.
12. He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and by his understanding hath he stretched out the heavens:
13. when he uttereth his voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasuries.
14. Every man is become brutish and is without knowledge; every goldsmith is put to shame by his graven image; for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.
15. They are vanity, a work of delusion: in the time of their visitation they shall perish.
16. The portion of Jacob is not like these; for he is the former of all things; and Israel is the tribe of his inheritance: Jehovah of hosts is his name.
17. Gather up thy wares out of the land, O thou that abidest in the siege.
18. For thus saith Jehovah, Behold, I will sling out the inhabitants of the land at this time, and will distress them, that they may feel it.
19. Woe is me because of my hurt! my wound is grievous: but I said, Truly this is my grief, and I must bear it.
20. My tent is destroyed, and all my cords are broken: my children are gone forth from me, and they are not: there is none to spread my tent any more, and to set up my curtains.
21. For the shepherds are become brutish, and have not inquired of Jehovah: therefore they have not prospered, and all their flocks are scattered.
22. The voice of tidings, behold, it cometh, and a great commotion out of the north country, to make the cities of Judah a desolation, a dwelling-place of jackals.
23. O Jehovah, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
24. O Jehovah, correct me, but in measure: not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing.
25. Pour out thy wrath upon the nations that know thee not, and upon the families that call not on thy name: for they have devoured Jacob, yea, they have devoured him and consumed him, and have laid waste his habitation.

Psalms 118:5-9
5. Out of my distress I called upon Jehovah: Jehovah answered me and set me in a large place.
6. Jehovah is on my side; I will not fear: What can man do unto me?
7. Jehovah is on my side among them that help me: Therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
8. It is better to take refuge in Jehovah Than to put confidence in man.
9. It is better to take refuge in Jehovah Than to put confidence in princes.

Proverbs 27:7-7
7. The full soul loatheth a honeycomb; But to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.

Colossians 3:1-25
1. If then ye were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God.
2. Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are upon the earth.
3. For ye died, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4. When Christ, who is our life, shall be manifested, then shall ye also with him be manifested in glory.
5. Put to death therefore your members which are upon the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry;
6. for which things sake cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience:
7. wherein ye also once walked, when ye lived in these things;
8. but now do ye also put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, railing, shameful speaking out of your mouth:
9. lie not one to another; seeing that ye have put off the old man with his doings,
10. and have put on the new man, that is being renewed unto knowledge after the image of him that created him:
11. where there cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bondman, freeman; but Christ is all, and in all.
12. Put on therefore, as Gods elect, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, longsuffering;
13. forbearing one another, and forgiving each other, if any man have a complaint against any; even as the Lord forgave you, so also do ye:
14. and above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness.
15. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to the which also ye were called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts unto God.
17. And whatsoever ye do, in word or in deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
18. Wives, be in subjection to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
19. Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
20. Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing in the Lord.
21. Fathers, provoke not your children, that they be not discouraged.
22. Servants, obey in all things them that are your masters according to the flesh; not with eye-service, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing the Lord:
23. whatsoever ye do, work heartily, as unto the Lord, and not unto men;
24. knowing that from the Lord ye shall receive the recompense of the inheritance: ye serve the Lord Christ.
25. For he that doeth wrong shall receive again for the wrong that he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
