Ruth 1:1-22
1. IN THE days when the judges ruled, there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem of Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, his wife, and his two sons.
2. The man's name was Elimelech and his wife's name was Naomi and his two sons were named Mahlon [invalid] and Chilion [pining]; they were Ephrathites from Bethlehem of Judah. They went to the country of Moab and continued there.
3. But Elimelech, who Naomi's husband, died, and she was left with her two sons.
4. And they took wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. They dwelt there about ten years;
5. And Mahlon and Chilion died also, both of them, so the woman was bereft of her two sons and her husband.
6. Then she arose with her daughters-in-law to return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in Moab how the Lord had visited His people in giving them food.
7. So she left the place where she was, her two daughters-in-law with her, and they started on the way back to Judah.
8. But Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, Go, return each of you to her mother's house. May the Lord deal kindly with you, as you have dealt with the dead and with me.
9. The Lord grant that you may find a home and rest, each in the house of her husband! Then she kissed them and they wept aloud.
10. And they said to her, No, we will return with you to your people.
11. But Naomi said, Turn back, my daughters, why will you go with me? Have I yet sons in my womb that may become your husbands?
12. Turn back, my daughters, go; for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say I have hope, even if I should have a husband tonight and should bear sons,
13. Would you therefore wait till they were grown? Would you therefore refrain from marrying? No, my daughters; it is far more bitter for me than for you that the hand of the Lord is gone out against me.
14. Then they wept aloud again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law [good-bye], but Ruth clung to her.
15. And Naomi said, See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law.
16. And Ruth said, Urge me not to leave you or to turn back from following you; for where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people and your God my God.
17. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts me from you.
18. When Naomi saw that Ruth was determined to go with her, she said no more.
19. So they both went on until they came to Bethlehem. And when they arrived in Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred about them, and said, Is this Naomi?
20. And she said to them, Call me not Naomi [pleasant]; call me Mara [bitter], for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me.
21. I went out full, but the Lord has brought me home again empty. Why call me Naomi, since the Lord has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me?
22. So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her, who returned from the country of Moab. And they came to Bethlehem at the beginning of barley harvest.

Ruth 2:1-23
1. NOW NAOMI had a kinsman of her husband's, a man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech, whose name was Boaz.
2. And Ruth the Moabitess said to Naomi, Let me go to the field and glean among the ears of grain after him in whose sight I shall find favor. Naomi said to her, Go, my daughter.
3. And [Ruth] went and gleaned in a field after the reapers; and she happened to stop at the part of the field belonging to Boaz, who was of the family of Elimelech.
4. And behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem and said to the reapers, The Lord be with you! And they answered him, The Lord bless you!
5. Then Boaz said to his servant who was set over the reapers, Whose maiden is this?
6. And the servant set over the reapers answered, She is the Moabitish girl who came back with Naomi from the country of Moab.
7. And she said, I pray you, let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves. So she came and has continued from early morning until now, except when she rested a little in the house.
8. Then Boaz said to Ruth, Listen, my daughter, do not go to glean in another field or leave this one, but stay here close by my maidens.
9. Watch which field they reap, and follow them. Have I not charged the young men not to molest you? And when you are thirsty, go to the vessels and drink what the young men have drawn.
10. Then she fell on her face, bowing to the ground, and said to him, Why have I found favor in your eyes that you should notice me, when I am a foreigner?
11. And Boaz said to her, I have been made fully aware of all you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband, and how you have left your father and mother and the land of your birth and have come to a people unknown to you before.
12. The Lord recompense you for what you have done, and a full reward be given you by the Lord, the God of Israel, under Whose wings you have come to take refuge!
13. Then she said, Let me find favor in your sight, my lord. For you have comforted me and have spoken to the heart of your maidservant, though I am not as one of your maidservants.
14. And at mealtime Boaz said to her, Come here and eat of the bread and dip your morsel in the sour wine [mixed with oil]. And she sat beside the reapers; and he passed her some parched grain, and she ate until she was satisfied and she had some left [for Naomi].
15. And when she got up to glean, Boaz ordered his young men, Let her glean even among the sheaves, and do not reproach her.
16. And let fall some handfuls for her on purpose and let them lie there for her to glean, and do not rebuke her.
17. So she gleaned in the field until evening. Then she beat out what she had gleaned. It was about an ephah of barley.
18. And she took it up and went into the town; she showed her mother-in-law what she had gleaned, and she also brought forth and gave her the food she had reserved after she was satisfied.
19. And her mother-in-law said to her, Where have you gleaned today? Where did you work? Blessed be the man who noticed you. So [Ruth] told [her], The name of him with whom I worked today is Boaz.
20. And Naomi said to her daughter-in-law, Blessed be he of the Lord who has not ceased his kindness to the living and to the dead. And Naomi said to her, The man is a near relative of ours, one who has the right to redeem us. [Lev. 25:25.]
21. And Ruth the Moabitess said, He said to me also, Stay close to my young men until they have harvested my entire crop.
22. And Naomi said to Ruth, It is good, my daughter, for you to go out with his maidens, lest in any other field you be molested.
23. So she kept close to the maidens of Boaz, gleaning until the end of the barley and wheat harvests. And she lived with her mother-in-law.

Psalms 52:1-5
1. To the Chief Musician. A skillful song, or a didactic or reflective poem. [A Psalm] of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, David has come to the house of Ahimelech. WHY BOAST you of mischief done against the loving-kindness of God [and the godly], O mighty [sinful] man, day after day?
2. Your tongue devises wickedness; it is like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
3. You love evil more than good, and lying rather than to speak righteousness, justice, and right. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
4. You love all destroying and devouring words, O deceitful tongue.
5. God will likewise break you down and destroy you forever; He will lay hold of you and pluck you out of your tent and uproot you from the land of the living. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Proverbs 15:4-5
4. A gentle tongue [with its healing power] is a tree of life, but willful contrariness in it breaks down the spirit.
5. A fool despises his father's instruction and correction, but he who regards reproof acquires prudence.

Luke 19:28-48
28. And after saying these things, Jesus went on ahead of them, going up to Jerusalem.
29. When He came near Bethphage and Bethany at the mount called [the Mount of] Olives, He sent two of His disciples,
30. Telling [them], Go into the village yonder; there, as you go in, you will find a donkey's colt tied, on which no man has ever yet sat. Loose it and bring [it here].
31. If anybody asks you, Why are you untying [it]? you shall say this: Because the Lord has need of it.
32. So those who were sent went away and found it [just] as He had told them.
33. And as they were loosening the colt, its owners said to them, Why are you untying the colt?
34. And they said, The Lord has need of it.
35. And they brought it to Jesus; then they threw their garments over the colt and set Jesus upon it. [Zech. 9:9.]
36. And as He rode along, the people kept spreading their garments on the road. [II Kings 9:13.]
37. As He was approaching [the city], at the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to rejoice and to praise God [extolling Him exultantly and] loudly for all the mighty miracles and works of power that they had witnessed,
38. Crying, Blessed (celebrated with praises) is the King Who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven [freedom there from all the distresses that are experienced as the result of sin] and glory (majesty and splendor) in the highest [heaven]! [Ps. 118:26.]
39. And some of the Pharisees from the throng said to Jesus, Teacher, reprove Your disciples!
40. He replied, I tell you that if these keep silent, the very stones will cry out. [Hab. 2:11.]
41. And as He approached, He saw the city, and He wept [audibly] over it,
42. Exclaiming, Would that you had known personally, even at least in this your day, the things that make for peace (for freedom from all the distresses that are experienced as the result of sin and upon which your peace--your security, safety, prosperity, and happiness--depends)! But now they are hidden from your eyes.
43. For a time is coming upon you when your enemies will throw up a bank [with pointed stakes] about you and surround you and shut you in on every side. [Isa. 29:3; Jer. 6:6; Ezek. 4:2.]
44. And they will dash you down to the ground, you [Jerusalem] and your children within you; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, [all] because you did not come progressively to recognize and know and understand [from observation and experience] the time of your visitation [that is, when God was visiting you, the time in which God showed Himself gracious toward you and offered you salvation through Christ].
45. Then He went into the temple [enclosure] and began to drive out those who were selling,
46. Telling them, It is written, My house shall be a house of prayer; but you have made it a cave of robbers. [Isa. 56:7; Jer. 7:11.]
47. And He continued to teach day after day in the temple [porches and courts]. The chief priests and scribes and the leading men of the people were seeking to put Him to death,
48. But they did not discover anything they could do, for all the people hung upon His words and stuck by Him.
