Isaiah 29:1-24
1. Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city of David's encampment! Add ye year to year; let the feasts come round.
2. But I will distress Ariel, and there shall be sorrow and sadness; and it shall be unto me as an Ariel.
3. And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with watch-posts, and I will raise forts against thee.
4. And thou shalt be brought low, thou shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall come low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.
5. And the multitude of thine enemies shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones as chaff that passeth away; and it shall be in an instant, suddenly.
6. Thou shalt be visited by Jehovah of hosts with thunder and with earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.
7. And the multitude of all the nations that war against Ariel, even all that war against her and her fortifications, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.
8. It shall even be as when the hungry dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; and he awaketh, and his soul is empty; or as when the thirsty dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; and he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul craveth: so shall the multitude of all the nations be that war against mount Zion.
9. Be astounded and astonished, blind yourselves and be blind! They are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
10. For Jehovah hath poured out upon you a spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes; the prophets and your chiefs, the seers, hath he covered.
11. And the whole vision is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which they give to one that can read, saying, Read this, I pray thee; and he saith, I cannot, for it is sealed.
12. And they give the book to him that cannot read, saying, Read this, I pray thee; and he saith, I cannot read.
13. And the Lord saith, Forasmuch as this people draw near with their mouth, and honour me with their lips, but their heart is removed far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught of men;
14. therefore, behold, I will proceed to do marvellously with this people, to do marvellously, even with wonder, and the wisdom of their wise [men] shall perish, and the understanding of their intelligent ones shall be hid.
15. Woe unto them that hide deep, far from Jehovah, their counsel! And their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
16. [Oh] your perverseness! Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay, so that the work should say of him that made it, He made me not; or the thing formed say of him that formed it, He hath no understanding?
17. Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
18. And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and, out of obscurity and out of darkness, the eyes of the blind shall see;
19. and the meek shall increase their joy in Jehovah, and the needy among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
20. For the terrible one shall come to nought, and the scorner shall be no more, and all that watch for iniquity shall be cut off,
21. that make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and pervert [the judgment of] the righteous by futility.
22. Therefore thus saith Jehovah who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob: Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now be pale;
23. for when he seeth his children, the work of my hands, in the midst of him, they shall hallow my name, and hallow the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.
24. And they that are of erring spirit shall know understanding, and the disobedient shall learn doctrine.

Psalms 108:1-6
1. {A Song, a Psalm of David.} My heart is fixed, O God: I will sing, yea, I will sing psalms, even [with] my glory.
2. Awake, lute and harp: I will wake the dawn.
3. I will give thee thanks among the peoples, O Jehovah; of thee will I sing psalms among the nations:
4. For thy loving-kindness is great above the heavens, and thy truth is unto the clouds.
5. Be thou exalted above the heavens, O God, and thy glory above all the earth.
6. That thy beloved ones may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.

Proverbs 25:21-22
21. If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:
22. for thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and Jehovah shall reward thee.

2 Corinthians 11:1-15
1. Would that ye would bear with me [in] a little folly; but indeed bear with me.
2. For I am jealous as to you with a jealousy [which is] of God; for I have espoused you unto one man, to present [you] a chaste virgin to Christ.
3. But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craft, [so] your thoughts should be corrupted from simplicity as to the Christ.
4. For if indeed he that comes preaches another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or ye get a different Spirit, which ye have not got, or a different glad tidings, which ye have not received, ye might well bear with [it].
5. For I reckon that in nothing I am behind those who are in surpassing degree apostles.
6. But if [I am] a simple person in speech, yet not in knowledge, but in everything making [the truth] manifest in all things to you.
7. Have I committed sin, abasing myself in order that *ye* might be exalted, because I gratuitously announced to you the glad tidings of God?
8. I spoiled other assemblies, receiving hire for ministry towards you.
9. And being present with you and lacking, I did not lazily burden any one, (for the brethren who came from Macedonia supplied what I lacked,) and in everything I kept myself from being a burden to you, and will keep myself.
10. [The] truth of Christ is in me that this boasting shall not be stopped as to me in the regions of Achaia.
11. Why? because I do not love you? God knows.
12. But what I do, I will also do, that I may cut off the opportunity of those wishing [for] an opportunity, that wherein they boast they may be found even as we.
13. For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.
14. And [it is] not wonderful, for Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
15. It is no great thing therefore if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
