Jeremiah 13:1-27
1. Thus saith Jehovah unto me, Go, and buy thee a linen girdle, and put it upon thy loins, and put it not in water.
2. So I bought a girdle according to the word of Jehovah, and put it upon my loins.
3. And the word of Jehovah came unto me the second time, saying,
4. Take the girdle that thou hast bought, which is upon thy loins, and arise, go to the Euphrates, and hide it there in a cleft of the rock.
5. So I went, and hid it by the Euphrates, as Jehovah commanded me.
6. And it came to pass after many days, that Jehovah said unto me, Arise, go to the Euphrates, and take the girdle from thence, which I commanded thee to hide there.
7. Then I went to the Euphrates, and digged, and took the girdle from the place where I had hid it; and, behold, the girdle was marred, it was profitable for nothing.
8. Then the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
9. Thus saith Jehovah, After this manner will I mar the pride of Judah, and the great pride of Jerusalem.
10. This evil people, that refuse to hear my words, that walk in the stubbornness of their heart, and are gone after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is profitable for nothing.
11. For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith Jehovah; that they may be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear.
12. Therefore thou shalt speak unto them this word: Thus saith Jehovah, the God of Israel, Every bottle shall be filled with wine: and they shall say unto thee, Do we not certainly know that every bottle shall be filled with wine?
13. Then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith Jehovah, Behold, I will fill all the inhabitants of this land, even the kings that sit upon Davids throne, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, with drunkenness.
14. And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith Jehovah: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have compassion, that I should not destroy them.
15. Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud; for Jehovah hath spoken.
16. Give glory to Jehovah your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.
17. But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because Jehovahs flock is taken captive.
18. Say thou unto the king and to the queen-mother, Humble yourselves, sit down; for your headtires are come down, even the crown of your glory.
19. The cities of the South are shut up, and there is none to open them: Judah is carried away captive, all of it; it is wholly carried away captive.
20. Lift up your eyes, and behold them that come from the north: where is the flock that was given thee, thy beautiful flock?
21. What wilt thou say, when he shall set over thee as head those whom thou hast thyself taught to be friends to thee? shall not sorrows take hold of thee, as of a woman in travail?
22. And if thou say in thy heart, Wherefore are these things come upon me? for the greatness of thine iniquity are thy skirts uncovered, and thy heels suffer violence.
23. Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
24. Therefore will I scatter them, as the stubble that passeth away, by the wind of the wilderness.
25. This is thy lot, the portion measured unto thee from me, saith Jehovah; because thou hast forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood.
26. Therefore will I also uncover thy skirts upon thy face, and thy shame shall appear.
27. I have seen thine abominations, even thine adulteries, and thy neighings, the lewdness of thy whoredom, on the hills in the field. Woe unto thee, O Jerusalem! thou wilt not be made clean; how long shall it yet be?

Jeremiah 14:1-22
1. The word of Jehovah that came to Jeremiah concerning the drought.
2. Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish, they sit in black upon the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.
3. And their nobles send their little ones to the waters: they come to the cisterns, and find no water; they return with their vessels empty; they are put to shame and confounded, and cover their heads.
4. Because of the ground which is cracked, for that no rain hath been in the land, the plowmen are put to shame, they cover their heads.
5. Yea, the hind also in the field calveth, and forsaketh her young, because there is no grass.
6. And the wild asses stand on the bare heights, they pant for air like jackals; their eyes fail, because there is no herbage.
7. Though our iniquities testify against us, work thou for thy names sake, O Jehovah; for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against thee.
8. O thou hope of Israel, the Saviour thereof in the time of trouble, why shouldest thou be as a sojourner in the land, and as a wayfaring man that turneth aside to tarry for a night?
9. Why shouldest thou be as a man affrighted, as a mighty man that cannot save? yet thou, O Jehovah, art in the midst of us, and we are called by thy name; leave us not.
10. Thus saith Jehovah unto this people, Even so have they loved to wander; they have not refrained their feet: therefore Jehovah doth not accept them; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.
11. And Jehovah said unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.
12. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt-offering and meal-offering, I will not accept them; but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.
13. Then said I, Ah, Lord Jehovah! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place.
14. Then Jehovah said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name; I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake I unto them: they prophesy unto you a lying vision, and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their own heart.
15. Therefore thus saith Jehovah concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land: By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.
16. And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them-them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.
17. And thou shalt say this word unto them, Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease; for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous wound.
18. If I go forth into the field, then, behold, the slain with the sword! and if I enter into the city, then, behold, they that are sick with famine! for both the prophet and the priest go about in the land, and have no knowledge.
19. Hast thou utterly rejected Judah? hath thy soul loathed Zion? why hast thou smitten us, and there is no healing for us? We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of healing, and, behold, dismay!
20. We acknowledge, O Jehovah, our wickedness, and the iniquity of our fathers; for we have sinned against thee.
21. Do not abhor us, for thy names sake; do not disgrace the throne of thy glory: remember, break not thy covenant with us.
22. Are there any among the vanities of the nations that can cause rain? or can the heavens give showers? art not thou he, O Jehovah our God? therefore we will wait for thee; for thou hast made all these things.

Psalms 118:15-20
15. The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous: The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly.
16. The right hand of Jehovah is exalted: The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly.
17. I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of Jehovah.
18. Jehovah hath chastened me sore; But he hath not given me over unto death.
19. Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will enter into them, I will give thanks unto Jehovah.
20. This is the gate of Jehovah; The righteous shall enter into it.

Proverbs 27:9-9
9. Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; So doth the sweetness of a mans friend that cometh of hearty counsel.

1 Thessalonians 1:1-10
1. Paul, and Silvanus, and Timothy, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace.
2. We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
3. remembering without ceasing your work of faith and labor of love and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, before our God and Father;
4. knowing, brethren beloved of God, your election,
5. how that our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, and in much assurance; even as ye know what manner of men we showed ourselves toward you for your sake.
6. And ye became imitators of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit;
7. so that ye became an ensample to all that believe in Macedonia and in Achaia.
8. For from you hath sounded forth the word of the Lord, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but in every place your faith to God-ward is gone forth; so that we need not to speak anything.
9. For they themselves report concerning us what manner of entering in we had unto you; and how ye turned unto God from idols, to serve a living and true God,
10. and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, who delivereth us from the wrath to come.
