2 Kings 25:1-30
1. And it came to pass in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came, he and all his army, against Jerusalem, and encamped against it; and they built forts against it round about.
2. So the city was besieged unto the eleventh year of king Zedekiah.
3. On the ninth day of the fourth month the famine was sore in the city, so that there was no bread for the people of the land.
4. Then a breach was made in the city, and all the men of war fled by night by the way of the gate between the two walls, which was by the kings garden (now the Chaldeans were against the city round about); and the king went by the way of the Arabah.
5. But the army of the Chaldeans pursued after the king, and overtook him in the plains of Jericho; and all his army was scattered from him.
6. Then they took the king, and carried him up unto the king of Babylon to Riblah; and they gave judgment upon him.
7. And they slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, and put out the eyes of Zedekiah, and bound him in fetters, and carried him to Babylon.
8. Now in the fifth month, on the seventh day of the month, which was the nineteenth year of king Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, a servant of the king of Babylon, unto Jerusalem.
9. And he burnt the house of Jehovah, and the kings house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, even every great house, burnt he with fire.
10. And all the army of the Chaldeans, that were with the captain of the guard, brake down the walls of Jerusalem round about.
11. And the residue of the people that were left in the city, and those that fell away, that fell to the king of Babylon, and the residue of the multitude, did Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carry away captive.
12. But the captain of the guard left of the poorest of the land to be vinedressers and husbandmen.
13. And the pillars of brass that were in the house of Jehovah, and the bases and the brazen sea that were in the house of Jehovah, did the Chaldeans break in pieces, and carried the brass of them to Babylon.
14. And the pots, and the shovels, and the snuffers, and the spoons, and all the vessels of brass wherewith they ministered, took they away.
15. And the firepans, and the basins, that which was of gold, in gold, and that which was of silver, in silver, the captain of the guard took away.
16. The two pillars, the one sea, and the bases, which Solomon had made for the house of Jehovah, the brass of all these vessels was without weight.
17. The height of the one pillar was eighteen cubits, and a capital of brass was upon it; and the height of the capital was three cubits, with network and pomegranates upon the capital round about, all of brass: and like unto these had the second pillar with network.
18. And the captain of the guard took Seraiah the chief priest, and Zephaniah the second priest, and the three keepers of the threshold:
19. and out of the city he took an officer that was set over the men of war; and five men of them that saw the kings face, who were found in the city; and the scribe, the captain of the host, who mustered the people of the land; and threescore men of the people of the land, that were found in the city.
20. And Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard took them, and brought them to the king of Babylon to Riblah.
21. And the king of Babylon smote them, and put them to death at Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah was carried away captive out of his land.
22. And as for the people that were left in the land of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had left, even over them he made Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, governor.
23. Now when all the captains of the forces, they and their men, heard that the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah governor, they came to Gedaliah to Mizpah, even Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and Seraiah the son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite, and Jaazaniah the son of the Maacathite, they and their men.
24. And Gedaliah sware to them and to their men, and said unto them, Fear not because of the servants of the Chaldeans: dwell in the land, and serve the king of Babylon, and it shall be well with you.
25. But it came to pass in the seventh month, that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, the son of Elishama, of the seed royal, came, and ten men with him, and smote Gedaliah, so that he died, and the Jews and the Chaldeans that were with him at Mizpah.
26. And all the people, both small and great, and the captains of the forces, arose, and came to Egypt; for they were afraid of the Chaldeans.
27. And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, that Evil-merodach king of Babylon, in the year that he began to reign, did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of prison;
28. and he spake kindly to him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings that were with him in Babylon,
29. and changed his prison garments. And Jehoiachin did eat bread before him continually all the days of his life:
30. and for his allowance, there was a continual allowance given him of the king, every day a portion, all the days of his life.

Psalms 75:1-10
1. We give thanks unto thee, O God; We give thanks, for thy name is near: Men tell of thy wondrous works.
2. When I shall find the set time, I will judge uprightly.
3. The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I have set up the pillars of it. Selah
4. I said unto the arrogant, Deal not arrogantly; And to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
5. Lift not up your horn on high; Speak not with a stiff neck.
6. For neither from the east, nor from the west, Nor yet from the south, cometh lifting up.
7. But God is the judge: He putteth down one, and lifteth up another.
8. For in the hand of Jehovah there is a cup, and the wine foameth; It is full of mixture, and he poureth out of the same: Surely the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall drain them, and drink them.
9. But I will declare for ever, I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10. All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; But the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up. Psalm 76 For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph, a song.

Proverbs 19:4-5
4. Wealth addeth many friends; But the poor is separated from his friend.
5. A false witness shall not be unpunished; And he that uttereth lies shall not escape.

Acts 3:1-26
1. Now Peter and John were going up into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.
2. And a certain man that was lame from his mothers womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the door of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;
3. who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked to receive an alms.
4. And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him, with John, said, Look on us.
5. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something from them.
6. But Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but what I have, that give I thee. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.
7. And he took him by the right hand, and raised him up: and immediately his feet and his ankle-bones received strength.
8. And leaping up, he stood, and began to walk; and he entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.
9. And all the people saw him walking and praising God:
10. and they took knowledge of him, that it was he that sat for alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.
11. And as he held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomons, greatly wondering.
12. And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this man? or why fasten ye your eyes on us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made him to walk?
13. The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Servant Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied before the face of Pilate, when he had determined to release him.
14. But ye denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted unto you,
15. and killed the Prince of life; whom God raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.
16. And by faith in his name hath his name made this man strong, whom ye behold and know: yea, the faith which is through him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
17. And now, brethren, I know that in ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.
18. But the things which God foreshowed by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ should suffer, he thus fulfilled.
19. Repent ye therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, that so there may come seasons of refreshing from the presence of the Lord;
20. and that he may send the Christ who hath been appointed for you, even Jesus:
21. whom the heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, whereof God spake by the mouth of His holy prophets that have been from of old.
22. Moses indeed said, A prophet shall the Lord God raise up unto you from among your brethren, like unto me. To him shall ye hearken in all things whatsoever he shall speak unto you.
23. And it shall be, that every soul that shall not hearken to that prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.
24. Yea and all the prophets from Samuel and them that followed after, as many as have spoken, they also told of these days.
25. Ye are the sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with your fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
26. Unto you first God, having raised up his Servant, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities.
