Isaiah 21:1-16
1. The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass through, so it cometh from the desert, from a terrible land.
2. A grievous vision is declared unto me: the treacherous dealeth treacherously, and the spoiler spoileth. Go up, Elam! besiege, Media! All the sighing thereof have I made to cease.
3. Therefore are my loins filled with pain; anguish hath taken hold upon me, as the anguish of a woman in travail: I am bowed down so as not to hear, I am dismayed so as not to see.
4. My heart panteth, horror affrighteth me: the night of my pleasure hath he turned into trembling unto me.
5. Prepare the table, appoint the watch; eat, drink: arise, ye princes, anoint the shield.
6. For thus hath the Lord said unto me: Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.
7. And he saw chariots, horsemen by pairs, a chariot with asses, a chariot with camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed.
8. And he cried [as] a lion, Lord, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights.
9. And behold, there cometh a chariot of men; horsemen by pairs. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.
10. O my threshing, and the corn of my floor! What I have heard of Jehovah of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared unto you.
11. The burden of Dumah. He calleth to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?
12. The watchman said, The morning cometh, and also the night: if ye will inquire, inquire; return, come.
13. The burden against Arabia. In the forest of Arabia shall ye lodge, [ye] caravans of Dedanites.
14. Bring ye water to meet the thirsty! The inhabitants of the land of Tema come forth with their bread for him that fleeth.
15. For they flee from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.
16. For thus hath the Lord said unto me: Within a year, according to the years of a hired servant, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail;

Isaiah 22:1-25
1. The burden of the valley of vision. What aileth thee now, that thou art wholly gone up to the housetops?
2. Thou that wast full of stir, a town of tumult, a joyous city: thy slain men are not slain with the sword, nor dead in battle.
3. All thy rulers have fled together, they are taken prisoners without the bow: all that are found of thee are made prisoners together; they were fleeing far off.
4. Therefore said I, Look away from me; let me weep bitterly: labour not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.
5. For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity, from the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, in the valley of vision; [a day of] breaking down the wall, and of crying to the mountain:
6. Elam beareth the quiver with chariots of men [and] horsemen; and Kir uncovereth the shield.
7. And it shall come to pass [that] thy choicest valleys shall be full of chariots, and the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate.
8. And he uncovereth the covering of Judah: and thou didst look in that day to the armour in the house of the forest;
9. and ye have seen the breaches of the city of David, that they are many; and ye have gathered together the waters of the lower pool;
10. and ye have numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and have broken down the houses to fortify the wall;
11. and ye have made a reservoir between the two walls for the water of the old pool: but ye have not had regard unto the maker thereof, neither have ye looked unto him that fashioned it long ago.
12. And in that day did the Lord Jehovah of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth;
13. and behold joy and rejoicing, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: Let us eat and drink, for to-morrow we die.
14. And it was revealed in mine ears by Jehovah of hosts: Assuredly this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Lord, Jehovah of hosts.
15. Thus saith the Lord Jehovah of hosts: Go, get thee in unto this steward, unto Shebna, who is over the house, [and say,]
16. What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewn thee out a sepulchre here, [as] he that heweth out his sepulchre on high, cutting out in the rock a habitation for himself?
17. Behold, Jehovah will hurl thee with the force of a mighty man, and will cover thee entirely.
18. Rolling thee up completely, he will roll thee as a ball into a wide country: there shalt thou die, and there shall be the chariots of thy glory, O shame of thy lord's house!
19. And I will drive thee from thine office, and from thy station will I pull thee down.
20. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkijah;
21. and I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand; and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.
22. And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; and he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
23. And I will fasten him [as] a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a throne of glory to his father's house:
24. and they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all the small vessels, as well the vessels of cups as all the vessels of flagons.
25. In that day, saith Jehovah of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in a sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for Jehovah hath spoken.

Psalms 107:1-9
1. Give ye thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever.
2. Let the redeemed of Jehovah say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the oppressor,
3. And gathered out of the countries, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the sea.
4. They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way, they found no city of habitation;
5. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them:
6. Then they cried unto Jehovah in their trouble, [and] he delivered them out of their distresses,
7. And he led them forth by a right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
8. Let them give thanks unto Jehovah for his loving-kindness, and for his wondrous works to the children of men;
9. For he hath satisfied the longing soul and filled the hungry soul with good.

Proverbs 25:14-16
14. Clouds and wind without rain, [so] is a man that boasteth himself of a false gift.
15. By long forbearing is a ruler persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.
16. Hast thou found honey? Eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be surfeited therewith, and vomit it.

2 Corinthians 7:1-16
1. Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us purify ourselves from every pollution of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in God's fear.
2. Receive us: we have injured no one, we have ruined no one, we have made gain of no one.
3. I do not speak for condemnation, for I have already said that ye are in our hearts, to die together, and live together.
4. Great [is] my boldness towards you, great my exulting in respect of you; I am filled with encouragement; I overabound in joy under all our affliction.
5. For indeed, when we came into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but [we were] afflicted in every way; without combats, within fears.
6. But he who encourages those that are [brought] low, [even] God, encouraged us by the coming of Titus;
7. and not by his coming only, but also through the encouragement with which he was encouraged as to you; relating to us your ardent desire, your mourning, your zeal for me; so that I the more rejoiced.
8. For if also I grieved you in the letter, I do not regret [it], if even I have regretted it; for I see that that letter, if even [it were] only for a time, grieved you.
9. Now I rejoice, not that ye have been grieved, but that ye have been grieved to repentance; for ye have been grieved according to God, that in nothing ye might be injured by us.
10. For grief according to God works repentance to salvation, never to be regretted; but the grief of the world works death.
11. For, behold, this same thing, your being grieved according to God, how much diligence it wrought in *you*, but [what] excusing [of yourselves], but [what] indignation, but [what] fear, but [what] ardent desire, but [what] zeal, but [what] vengeance: in every way ye have proved yourselves to be pure in the matter.
12. So then, if also I wrote to you, [it was] not for the sake of him that injured, nor for the sake of him that was injured, but for the sake of our diligent zeal for you being manifested to you before God.
13. For this reason we have been encouraged. And we the rather rejoiced in our encouragement more abundantly by reason of the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all.
14. Because if I boasted to him anything about you, I have not been put to shame; but as we have spoken to you all things in truth, so also our boasting to Titus has been [the] truth;
15. and his affections are more abundantly towards you, calling to mind the obedience of you all, how with fear and trembling ye received him.
16. I rejoice that in everything I am confident as to you.
