Jeremiah 9:1-26
1. Oh that my head were waters, and mine eye 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 traveller's lodging-place, that I might leave my people, and go away from them! For they are all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men.
3. And they bend their tongue, their bow of falsehood, and not for fidelity are they valiant in the land; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith Jehovah.
4. Take ye heed every one of his friend, and confide not in any brother; for every brother only supplanteth, and every friend goeth about with slander.
5. And they act deceitfully every one with his neighbour, and speak not the truth: they teach their tongue to speak falsehood, they weary themselves with perverse dealing.
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 could I do for the daughter of my people?
8. Their tongue is a murderous arrow; it speaketh deceit. [A man] speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in his heart he layeth his ambush.
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 weeping and wailing, and for the pastures of the wilderness, a lamentation; for they are burnt up, so that none passeth through them; and the voice of the cattle is not heard. Both the fowl 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 a wise man, that he may understand this? and he to whom the mouth of Jehovah hath spoken, that he may declare it? Why is the land perished, burnt 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 hearkened unto my voice, nor walked in it,
14. but have walked after the stubbornness of their own heart, and after the Baals, as their fathers taught them;
15. therefore thus saith Jehovah of hosts, the God of Israel, Behold, I will feed this people with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink,
16. and will scatter them 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, 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 pour forth waters.
19. For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled, sorely put to shame! For we have forsaken the land, for they have cast down our dwellings.
20. Hear then the word of Jehovah, ye women, and let your ear receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and each one her companion lamentation.
21. For death is come up through our windows, is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from the street, the young men from the broadways.
22. Speak, Thus saith Jehovah: Yea, the carcases of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the reaper, and there shall be none to gather.
23. Thus saith Jehovah: Let not the wise glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty glory in his might; let not the rich glory in his riches:
24. but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I [am] Jehovah, who exercise loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth; for in these things I delight, saith Jehovah.
25. Behold, days are coming, saith Jehovah, when I will visit all [them that are] circumcised with the uncircumcised;
26. Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab, and all that have the corners [of their beard] 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 the word that Jehovah speaketh unto you, house of Israel.
2. Thus saith Jehovah: Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at the signs of the heavens; for the nations are dismayed at them.
3. For the statutes of the peoples are vanity; for [it is] a tree cut out of the forest, worked with a chisel by the hands of the artizan;
4. they deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
5. They are as a palm-column of turned work, and they speak not; they are carried, for they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
6. There is none like unto thee, Jehovah; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.
7. Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? For to thee doth it appertain; for among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto thee.
8. But they are one and all senseless and foolish; the teaching of vanities is a stock.
9. Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the artizan and of the hands of the founder; blue and purple is their clothing: they are all the work of skilful [men].
10. But Jehovah Elohim is truth; he is the living God, and the King of eternity. At his wrath the earth trembleth, and the nations cannot 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 hath stretched out the heavens by his understanding.
13. When he uttereth his voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the end of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasuries.
14. Every man is become brutish, bereft of knowledge; every founder is put to shame by the 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 them; for it is he that hath formed all [things], and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: Jehovah of hosts is his name.
17. Gather up thy baggage out of the land, O inhabitress of the fortress.
18. For thus saith Jehovah: Behold, I will this time sling out the inhabitants of the land, and will distress them, that they may be found.
19. Woe is me, for my wound! My stroke is hard to heal, and I had said, Yea, this is [my] grief, and I will bear it.
20. My tent is despoiled, and all my cords are broken; my children are gone forth from me, and they are not; there is none to stretch forth my tent any more, and to set up my curtains.
21. For the shepherds are become brutish, and have not sought Jehovah; therefore have they not acted wisely, and all their flock is scattered.
22. The voice of a rumour! 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. I know, Jehovah, that the way of man is not his own; it is not in a man that walketh to direct his steps.
24. Jehovah, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing.
25. Pour out thy fury upon the nations that know thee not, and upon the families that call not on thy name; for they have eaten up Jacob, yea, they have eaten him up and consumed him, and have laid waste his dwelling-place.

Psalms 118:5-9
5. I called upon Jah in distress; Jah answered me [and set me] in a large place.
6. Jehovah is for me, I will not fear; what can man do unto me?
7. Jehovah is for me among them that help me; and I shall see [my desire] upon them that hate me.
8. It is better to trust in Jehovah than to put confidence in man;
9. It is better to trust in Jehovah than to put confidence in nobles.

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

Colossians 3:1-25
1. If therefore ye have been raised with the Christ, seek the things [which are] above, where the Christ is, sitting at [the] right hand of God:
2. have your mind on the things [that are] above, not on the things [that are] on the earth;
3. for ye have died, and your life is hid with the Christ in God.
4. When the Christ is manifested who [is] our life, then shall *ye* also be manifested with him in glory.
5. Put to death therefore your members which [are] upon the earth, fornication, uncleanness, vile passions, evil lust, and unbridled desire, which is idolatry.
6. On account of which things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
7. In which *ye* also once walked when ye lived in these things.
8. But now, put off, *ye* also, all [these] things, wrath, anger, malice, blasphemy, vile language out of your mouth.
9. Do not lie to one another, having put off the old man with his deeds,
10. and having put on the new, renewed into full knowledge according to [the] image of him that has created him;
11. wherein there is not Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bondman, freeman; but Christ [is] everything, and in all.
12. Put on therefore, as [the] elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, longsuffering;
13. forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any should have a complaint against any; even as the Christ has forgiven you, so also [do] *ye*.
14. And to all these [add] love, which is the bond of perfectness.
15. And let the peace of Christ preside in your hearts, to which also ye have been called in one body, and be thankful.
16. Let the word of the Christ dwell in you richly, in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another, in psalms, hymns, spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to God.
17. And everything, whatever ye may do in word or in deed, [do] all things in [the] name of [the] Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father by him.
18. Wives, be subject 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, do not vex your children, to the end that they be not disheartened.
22. Bondmen, obey in all things your masters according to flesh; not with eye-services, as men-pleasers, but in simplicity of heart, fearing the Lord.
23. Whatsoever ye do, labour at it heartily, as [doing it] to the Lord, and not to men;
24. knowing that of [the] Lord ye shall receive the recompense of the inheritance; ye serve the Lord Christ.
25. For he that does a wrong shall receive the wrong he has done, and there is no respect of persons.
