Joshua 1:1-18
1. Now it came to pass after the death of Moses the servant of Jehovah, that Jehovah spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses minister, saying,
2. Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.
3. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, to you have I given it, as I spake unto Moses.
4. From the wilderness, and this Lebanon, even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your border.
5. There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life. as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee; I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
6. Be strong and of good courage; for thou shalt cause this people to inherit the land which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
7. Only be strong and very courageous, to observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest have good success whithersoever thou goest.
8. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate thereon day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
9. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not affrighted, neither be thou dismayed: for Jehovah thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
10. Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,
11. Pass through the midst of the camp, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye are to pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which Jehovah your God giveth you to possess it.
12. And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half-tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,
13. Remember the word which Moses the servant of Jehovah commanded you, saying, Jehovah your God giveth you rest, and will give you this land.
14. Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall abide in the land which Moses gave you beyond the Jordan; but ye shall pass over before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valor, and shall help them;
15. until Jehovah have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you, and they also have possessed the land which Jehovah your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and possess it, which Moses the servant of Jehovah gave you beyond the Jordan toward the sunrising.
16. And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou hast commanded us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us we will go.
17. According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only Jehovah thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses.
18. Whosoever he be that shall rebel against thy commandment, and shall not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of good courage.

Joshua 2:1-24
1. And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men as spies secretly, saying, Go, view the land, and Jericho. And they went and came into the house of a harlot whose name was Rahab, and lay there.
2. And it was told the king of Jericho, saying, Behold, there came men in hither to-night of the children of Israel to search out the land.
3. And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, Bring forth the men that are come to thee, that are entered into thy house; for they are come to search out all the land.
4. And the woman took the two men, and hid them; and she said, Yea, the men came unto me, but I knew not whence they were:
5. and it came to pass about the time of the shutting of the gate, when it was dark, that the men went out; whither the men went I know not: pursue after them quickly; for ye will overtake them.
6. But she had brought them up to the roof, and hid them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order upon the roof.
7. And the men pursued after them the way to the Jordan unto the fords: and as soon as they that pursued after them were gone out, they shut the gate.
8. And before they were laid down, she came up unto them upon the roof;
9. and she said unto the men, I know that Jehovah hath given you the land, and that the fear of you is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land melt away before you.
10. For we have heard how Jehovah dried up the water of the Red Sea before you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were beyond the Jordan, unto Sihon and to Og, whom ye utterly destroyed.
11. And as soon as we had heard it, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more spirit in any man, because of you: for Jehovah your God, he is God in heaven above, and on earth beneath.
12. Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by Jehovah, since I have dealt kindly with you, that ye also will deal kindly with my fathers house, and give me a true token;
13. and that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and will deliver our lives from death.
14. And the men said unto her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business; and it shall be, when Jehovah giveth us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee.
15. Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her house was upon the side of the wall, and she dwelt upon the wall.
16. And she said unto them, Get you to the mountain, lest the pursuers light upon you; and hide yourselves there three days, until the pursuers be returned: and afterward may ye go your way.
17. And the men said unto her, We will be guiltless of this thine oath which thou hast made us to swear.
18. Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt gather unto thee into the house thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy fathers household.
19. And it shall be, that whosoever shall go out of the doors of thy house into the street, his blood shall be upon his head, and we shall be guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, his blood shall be on our head, if any hand be upon him.
20. But if thou utter this our business, then we shall be guiltless of thine oath which thou hast made us to swear.
21. And she said, According unto your words, so be it. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the window.
22. And they went, and came unto the mountain, and abode there three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers sought them throughout all the way, but found them not.
23. Then the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun; and they told him all that had befallen them.
24. And they said unto Joshua, Truly Jehovah hath delivered into our hands all the land; and moreover all the inhabitants of the land do melt away before us.

Psalms 41:1-13
1. Blessed is he that considereth the poor: Jehovah will deliver him in the day of evil.
2. Jehovah will preserve him, and keep him alive, And he shall be blessed upon the earth; And deliver not thou him unto the will of his enemies.
3. Jehovah will support him upon the couch of languishing: Thou makest all his bed in his sickness.
4. I said, O Jehovah, have mercy upon me: Heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.
5. Mine enemies speak evil against me, saying, When will he die, and his name perish?
6. And if he come to see me, he speaketh falsehood; His heart gathereth iniquity to itself: When he goeth abroad, he telleth it.
7. All that hate me whisper together against me; Against me do they devise my hurt.
8. An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him; And now that he lieth he shall rise up no more.
9. Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, Who did eat of my bread, Hath lifted up his heel against me.
10. But thou, O Jehovah, have mercy upon me, and raise me up, That I may requite them.
11. By this I know that thou delightest in me, Because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.
12. And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, And settest me before thy face for ever.
13. Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel, From everlasting and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen. Psalm 42 For the Chief Musician. Maschil of the sons of Korah.

Proverbs 13:15-16
15. Good understanding giveth favor; But the way of the transgressor is hard.
16. Every prudent man worketh with knowledge; But a fool flaunteth his folly.

Luke 8:26-56
26. And they arrived at the country of the Gerasenes, which is over against Galilee.
27. And when he was come forth upon the land, there met him a certain man out of the city, who had demons; and for a long time he had worn no clothes, and abode not in any house, but in the tombs.
28. And when he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the Most High God? I beseech thee, torment me not.
29. For he was commanding the unclean spirit to come out from the man. For oftentimes it had seized him: and he was kept under guard, and bound with chains and fetters; and breaking the bands asunder, he was driven of the demon into the deserts.
30. And Jesus asked him, What is thy name? And he said, Legion; for many demons were entered into him.
31. And they entreated him that he would not command them to depart into the abyss.
32. Now there was there a herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they entreated him that he would give them leave to enter into them. And he gave them leave.
33. And the demons came out from the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd rushed down the steep into the lake, and were drowned.
34. And when they that fed them saw what had come to pass, they fled, and told it in the city and in the country.
35. And they went out to see what had come to pass; and they came to Jesus, and found the man, from whom the demons were gone out, sitting, clothed and in his right mind, at the feet of Jesus: and they were afraid.
36. And they that saw it told them how he that was possessed with demons was made whole.
37. And all the people of the country of the Gerasenes round about asked him to depart from them, for they were holden with great fear: and he entered into a boat, and returned.
38. But the man from whom the demons were gone out prayed him that he might be with him: but he sent him away, saying,
39. Return to thy house, and declare how great things God hath done for thee. And he went his way, publishing throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done for him.
40. And as Jesus returned, the multitude welcomed him; for they were all waiting for him.
41. And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus feet, and besought him to come into his house;
42. for he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as he went the multitudes thronged him.
43. And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, who had spent all her living upon physicians, and could not be healed of any,
44. came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately the issue of her blood stanched.
45. And Jesus said, Who is it that touched me? And when all denied, Peter said, and they that were with him, Master, the multitudes press thee and crush thee.
46. But Jesus said, Some one did touch me; for I perceived that power had gone forth from me.
47. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him declared in the presence of all the people for what cause she touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
48. And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
49. While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogues house, saying, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Teacher.
50. But Jesus hearing it, answered him, Fear not: only believe, and she shall be made whole.
51. And when he came to the house, he suffered not any man to enter in with him, save Peter, and John, and James, and the father of the maiden and her mother.
52. And all were weeping, and bewailing her: but he said, Weep not; for she is not dead, but sleepeth.
53. And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.
54. But he, taking her by the hand, called, saying, Maiden, arise.
55. And her spirit returned, and she rose up immediately: and he commanded that something be given her to eat.
56. And her parents were amazed: but he charged them to tell no man what had been done.
