Isaiah 43:1-28
1. But now thus saith Jehovah, that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed thee, I have called [thee] by thy name; thou art mine.
2. When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
3. For I [am] Jehovah thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
4. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee; and I will give men for thee, and peoples for thy life.
5. Fear not, for I [am] with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;
6. I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from afar, and my daughters from the end of the earth,
7. every one that is called by my name, and whom I have created for my glory: I have formed him, yea, I have made him.
8. Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.
9. Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the peoples be assembled: who among them declareth this, or causeth us to hear former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified; or let them hear, and say, [It is] truth.
10. Ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I [am] HE: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
11. I, I [am] Jehovah; and besides me there is no saviour.
12. It is I that have declared, and have saved, and have shewed, when there was no strange [god] among you; and ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, that I [am] God.
13. Yea, since the day was, I [am] HE, and there is none that delivereth out of my hand: I will work, and who shall hinder it?
14. Thus saith Jehovah, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought all of them down as fugitives, even the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.
15. I [am] Jehovah, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King.
16. Thus saith Jehovah, who maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters,
17. who bringeth forth chariot and horse, army and power they lie down together, they shall not rise; they are extinct, they are quenched as tow:
18. Remember not the former things, neither consider the ancient things:
19. behold, I do a new thing; now it shall spring forth: shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the waste.
20. The beast of the field shall glorify me, the jackals and the ostriches; for I will give waters in the wilderness, rivers in the waste, to give drink to my people, my chosen.
21. This people have I formed for myself: they shall shew forth my praise.
22. But thou hast not called upon me, Jacob; for thou hast been weary of me, O Israel:
23. thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt-offerings, neither hast thou glorified me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to toil with an oblation, nor wearied thee with incense.
24. Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices; but thou hast made me to toil with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.
25. I, I [am] He that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and I will not remember thy sins.
26. Put me in remembrance, let us plead together; rehearse thine own [cause], that thou mayest be justified.
27. Thy first father hath sinned, and thy mediators have rebelled against me.
28. And I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the ban, and Israel to reproaches.

Isaiah 44:1-28
1. And now hear, Jacob, my servant, and Israel, whom I have chosen:
2. thus saith Jehovah, that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, who helpeth thee, Fear not, Jacob, my servant, and thou, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.
3. For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground; I will pour my Spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring.
4. And they shall spring up among the grass, as willows by the water-courses.
5. One shall say, I am Jehovah's; and another shall call [himself] by the name of Jacob; and another shall write with his hand: [I am] Jehovah's, and surname [himself] by the name of Israel.
6. Thus saith Jehovah, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, Jehovah of hosts: I [am] the first, and I [am] the last, and beside me there is no God.
7. And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? And the coming things, and those that shall happen, let them declare unto them.
8. Fear not, neither be afraid. Have I not caused thee to hear from that time, and have declared it? and ye are my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no Rock: I know not any.
9. They that form a graven image are all of them vanity, and their delectable things are of no profit; and they are their own witnesses: they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.
10. Who hath formed a God, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?
11. Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed; and the workmen are but men. Let them all be gathered together, let them stand up: they shall fear, they shall be ashamed together.
12. The iron-smith [hath] a chisel, and he worketh in the coals, and he fashioneth it with hammers, and worketh it with his strong arm; but he is hungry, and his strength faileth; he hath not drunk water, and he is faint.
13. The worker in wood stretcheth out a line; he marketh it out with red chalk; he formeth it with sharp tools, and he marketh it out with the compass, and maketh it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of man: that it may remain in the house.
14. When he heweth him down cedars, he taketh also a holm-oak and a terebinth he chooseth for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth a pine, and the rain maketh [it] grow.
15. And it shall be for a man to burn, and he taketh thereof, and warmeth himself; he kindleth it also, and baketh bread; he maketh also a God, and worshippeth it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto.
16. He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh, he roasteth roast, and is satisfied; yea, he is warm, and saith, Aha, I am become warm, I have seen the fire.
17. And with the remainder thereof he maketh a God, his graven image; he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me, for thou art my God.
18. They have no knowledge, and understand not; for he hath plastered their eyes, that they may not see; and their hearts, that they may not understand.
19. And none taketh it to heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire, and have also baked bread upon the coals thereof, I have roasted flesh, and eaten [it], and with the rest thereof shall I make an abomination? shall I bow down to a block of wood?
20. He feedeth on ashes; a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?
21. Remember these things, O Jacob, and Israel, for thou art my servant; I have formed thee: thou art my servant, Israel; thou shalt not be forgotten of me.
22. I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.
23. Sing, ye heavens; for Jehovah hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth; break forth into singing, ye mountains, the forest, and every tree therein! For Jehovah hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.
24. Thus saith Jehovah, thy Redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb: I [am] Jehovah, the maker of all things; who alone stretched out the heavens, who did spread forth the earth by myself;
25. he that frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;
26. that confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built up, and I will raise up their ruins;
27. that saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers;
28. that saith of Cyrus, [He is] my shepherd, and he shall perform all my pleasure; even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.

Psalms 110:1-7
1. {Psalm of David.} Jehovah said unto my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until I put thine enemies [as] footstool of thy feet.
2. Jehovah shall send the sceptre of thy might out of Zion: rule in the midst of thine enemies.
3. Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in holy splendour: from the womb of the morning [shall come] to thee the dew of thy youth.

Proverbs 26:5-9
5. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes.
6. He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off [his own] feet, [and] drinketh damage.
7. The legs of the lame hang loose; so is a proverb in the mouth of fools.
8. As a bag of gems in a stoneheap, so is he that giveth honour to a fool.
9. [As] a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a proverb in the mouth of fools.

Galatians 4:1-31
1. Now I say, As long as the heir is a child, he differs nothing from a bondman, though he be lord of all;
2. but he is under guardians and stewards until the period fixed by the father.
3. So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the principles of the world;
4. but when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, come of woman, come under law,
5. that he might redeem those under law, that we might receive sonship.
6. But because ye are sons, God has sent out the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
7. So thou art no longer bondman, but son; but if son, heir also through God.
8. But then indeed, not knowing God, ye were in bondage to those who by nature are not gods;
9. but now, knowing God, but rather being known by God, how do ye turn again to the weak and beggarly principles to which ye desire to be again anew in bondage?
10. Ye observe days and months and times and years.
11. I am afraid of you, lest indeed I have laboured in vain as to you.
12. Be as *I* [am], for *I* also [am] as *ye*, brethren, I beseech you: ye have not at all wronged me.
13. But ye know that in weakness of the flesh I announced the glad tidings to you at the first;
14. and my temptation, which [was] in my flesh, ye did not slight nor reject with contempt; but ye received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus.
15. What then [was] your blessedness? for I bear you witness that, if possible, plucking out your own eyes ye would have given [them] to me.
16. So I have become your enemy in speaking the truth to you?
17. They are not rightly zealous after you, but desire to shut you out [from us], that ye may be zealous after them.
18. But [it is] right to be zealous at all times in what is right, and not only when I am present with you
19. my children, of whom I again travail in birth until Christ shall have been formed in you:
20. and I should wish to be present with you now, and change my voice, for I am perplexed as to you.
21. Tell me, ye who are desirous of being under law, do ye not listen to the law?
22. For it is written that Abraham had two sons; one of the maid servant, and one of the free woman.
23. But he [that was] of the maid servant was born according to flesh, and he [that was] of the free woman through the promise.
24. Which things have an allegorical sense; for these are two covenants: one from mount Sinai, gendering to bondage, which is Hagar.
25. For Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which [is] now, for she is in bondage with her children;
26. but the Jerusalem above is free, which is our mother.
27. For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break out and cry, thou that travailest not; because the children of the desolate are more numerous than [those] of her that has a husband.
28. But *ye*, brethren, after the pattern of Isaac, are children of promise.
29. But as then he that was born according to flesh persecuted him [that was born] according to Spirit, so also [it is] now.
30. But what says the scripture? Cast out the maid servant and her son; for the son of the maid servant shall not inherit with the son of the free woman.
31. So then, brethren, we are not maid servant's children, but [children] of the free woman.
