Isaiah 59:1-21
1. Behold, Jehovah's hand is not shortened that it cannot save, neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear;
2. but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid [his] face from you, that he doth not hear.
3. For your hands are stained with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips speak lies, your tongue muttereth unrighteousness:
4. none calleth for justice, none pleadeth in truthfulness. They trust in vanity, and speak falsehood; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
5. They hatch serpents' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.
6. Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works; their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.
7. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths;
8. the way of peace they know not, and there is no judgment in their goings; they have made their paths crooked: whoso goeth therein knoweth not peace.
9. Therefore is justice far from us, and righteousness overtaketh us not: we wait for light, and behold darkness; for brightness, [but] we walk in obscurity.
10. We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at midday as in the twilight; amongst the flourishing we are as the dead.
11. We roar all like bears, and mourn grievously like doves: we look for judgment, and there is none; for salvation, [but] it is far from us.
12. For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us; for our transgressions are with us; and our iniquities, we know them:
13. in transgressing and lying against Jehovah, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
14. And judgment is turned away backward, and righteousness standeth afar off; for truth stumbleth in the street, and uprightness cannot enter.
15. And truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey. And Jehovah saw [it], and it was evil in his sight that there was no judgment.
16. And he saw that there was no man, and he wondered that there was no intercessor; and his arm brought him salvation, and his righteousness, it sustained him.
17. And he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on garments of vengeance [for] clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.
18. According to deeds, so will he repay: fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.
19. And they shall fear the name of Jehovah from the west, and from the rising of the sun, his glory. When the adversary shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of Jehovah will lift up a banner against him.
20. And the Redeemer will come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith Jehovah.
21. And as for me, this is my covenant with them, saith Jehovah: My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith Jehovah, from henceforth and for ever.

Isaiah 60:1-22
1. Arise, shine! for thy light is come, and the glory of Jehovah is risen upon thee.
2. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Jehovah will arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen on thee.
3. And the nations shall walk by thy light, and kings by the brightness of thy rising.
4. Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons come from afar, and thy daughters are carried upon the side.
5. Then thou shalt see, and shalt be brightened, and thy heart shall throb, and be enlarged; for the abundance of the sea shall be turned unto thee, the wealth of the nations shall come unto thee.
6. A multitude of camels shall cover thee, young camels of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall publish the praises of Jehovah.
7. All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall serve thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will beautify the house of my magnificence.
8. Who are these that come flying as a cloud, and as doves to their dove-cotes?
9. For the isles shall await me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from afar, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of Jehovah thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, for he hath glorified thee.
10. And the sons of the alien shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee. For in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.
11. And thy gates shall stand open continually: (they shall not be shut day nor night,) that the wealth of the nations may be brought unto thee, and that their kings may be led [to thee].
12. For the nation and the kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; and those nations shall be utterly wasted.
13. The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the cypress, pine, and box-tree together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.
14. And the children of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee The city of Jehovah, the Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
15. Instead of thy being forsaken and hated, so that no one went through [thee], I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy from generation to generation.
16. And thou shalt suck the milk of the nations, and shalt suck the breast of kings; and thou shalt know that I, Jehovah, [am] thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
17. For bronze I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood bronze, and for stones iron; and I will make thine officers peace, and thy rulers righteousness.
18. Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.
19. The sun shall be no more thy light by day, neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee; but Jehovah shall be thine everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
20. Thy sun shall no more go down, neither shall thy moon withdraw itself; for Jehovah shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.
21. Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall possess the land for ever the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.
22. The little one shall become a thousand, and the smallest a mighty nation: I, Jehovah, will hasten it in its time.

Psalms 115:1-8
1. Not unto us, O Jehovah, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth's sake.
2. Wherefore should the nations say, Where then is their God?
3. But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he pleased.
4. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands:
5. They have a mouth, and they speak not; eyes have they, and they see not;
6. They have ears, and they hear not; a nose have they, and they smell not;
7. They have hands, and they handle not; feet have they, and they walk not; they give no sound through their throat.
8. They that make them are like unto them, every one that confideth in them.

Proverbs 26:23-23
23. Ardent lips, and a wicked heart, are [as] an earthen vessel overlaid with silver dross.

Ephesians 5:17-33
17. For this reason be not foolish, but understanding what [is] the will of the Lord.
18. And be not drunk with wine, in which is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit,
19. speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and chanting with your heart to the Lord;
20. giving thanks at all times for all things to him [who is] God and [the] Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
21. submitting yourselves to one another in [the] fear of Christ.
22. Wives, [submit yourselves] to your own husbands, as to the Lord,
23. for a husband is head of the wife, as also the Christ [is] head of the assembly. *He* [is] Saviour of the body.
24. But even as the assembly is subjected to the Christ, so also wives to their own husbands in everything.
25. Husbands, love your own wives, even as the Christ also loved the assembly, and has delivered himself up for it,
26. in order that he might sanctify it, purifying [it] by the washing of water by [the] word,
27. that *he* might present the assembly to himself glorious, having no spot, or wrinkle, or any of such things; but that it might be holy and blameless.
28. So ought men also to love their own wives as their own bodies: he that loves his own wife loves himself.
29. For no one has ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as also the Christ the assembly:
30. for we are members of his body; [we are of his flesh, and of his bones.]
31. Because of this a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall be united to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh.
32. This mystery is great, but *I* speak as to Christ, and as to the assembly.
33. But *ye* also, every one of you, let each so love his own wife as himself; but as to the wife [I speak] that she may fear the husband.
