Isaiah 5:1-30
1. I will sing to my well-beloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard: My well-beloved had a vineyard upon a fruitful hill.
2. And he dug it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine; and he built a tower in the midst of it, and also hewed out a winepress therein; and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, but it brought forth wild grapes.
3. And now, inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, between me and my vineyard.
4. What was there yet to do to my vineyard that I have not done in it? Wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?
5. And now, let me tell you what I am about to do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it shall be eaten up; I will break down its wall, and it shall be trodden under foot;
6. and I will make it a waste it shall not be pruned nor cultivated, but there shall come up briars and thorns; and I will command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
7. For the vineyard of Jehovah of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah the plant of his delight: and he looked for justice, and behold, blood-shedding; for righteousness, and behold, a cry.
8. Woe unto them that add house to house, that join field to field, until there is no more room, and that ye dwell yourselves alone in the midst of the land!
9. In mine ears Jehovah of hosts [hath said], Many houses shall assuredly become a desolation, great and excellent ones, without inhabitant.
10. Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and a homer of seed shall yield an ephah.
11. Woe unto them that, rising early in the morning, run after strong drink; that linger till twilight, [till] wine inflameth them!
12. And harp and lyre, tambour and flute, and wine are in their banquets; but they regard not the work of Jehovah, nor do they see the operation of his hands.
13. Therefore my people are led away captive from lack of knowledge, and their nobility die of famine, and their multitude are parched with thirst.
14. Therefore doth Sheol enlarge its desire, and open its mouth without measure; and her splendour shall descend [into it], and her multitude, and her tumult, and [all] that is joyful within her.
15. And the mean man shall be bowed down, and the great man brought low, and the eyes of the lofty shall be brought low;
16. and Jehovah of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and the holy God hallowed in righteousness.
17. And the lambs shall feed as on their pasture, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat.
18. Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as with cart-ropes!
19. who say, Let him hasten, let him speed his work, that we may see [it]; and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
20. Woe unto them who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21. Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and intelligent in their own esteem!
22. Woe unto them that are mighty for drinking wine, and men valiant to mix strong drink;
23. who justify the wicked for a bribe, and turn away the righteousness of the righteous from them!
24. Therefore as a tongue of fire devoureth the stubble, and dry grass sinketh down in the flame, their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust; for they have rejected the law of Jehovah of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25. Therefore is the anger of Jehovah kindled against his people, and he hath stretched out his hand against them and hath smitten them; and the mountains trembled, and their carcases are become as dung in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, and his hand is stretched out still.
26. And he will lift up a banner to the nations afar off, and will hiss for one from the end of the earth; and behold, it will come rapidly [and] lightly.
27. None among them is weary, none stumbleth; they slumber not, nor sleep; none hath the girdle of his loins loosed, nor the thong of his sandals broken;
28. their arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent; their horses' hoofs are reckoned as the flint, and their wheels as a whirlwind.
29. Their roaring is like a lioness, they roar as the young lions; yea, they growl, and snatch the prey, and carry it away safe, and there is none to deliver;
30. and they shall roar against them in that day like the roaring of the sea. And if one look upon the earth, behold darkness [and] distress, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

Isaiah 6:1-13
1. In the year of the death of king Uzziah, I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple.
2. Seraphim were standing above him: each had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he flew.
3. And one called to the other and said, Holy, holy, holy is Jehovah of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!
4. And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5. And I said, Woe unto me! for I am undone; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of hosts.
6. And one of the seraphim flew unto me, and he had in his hand a glowing coal, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar;
7. and he made it touch my mouth, and said, Behold, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin expiated.
8. And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? And I said, Here am I; send me.
9. And he said, Go; and thou shalt say unto this people, Hearing ye shall hear and shall not understand, and seeing ye shall see and shall not perceive.
10. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and healed.
11. And I said, Lord, how long? And he said, Until the cities be wasted, without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land become an utter desolation,
12. and Jehovah have removed men far away, and the solitude be great in the midst of the land.
13. But a tenth part shall still be therein, and it shall return and be eaten; as the terebinth and as the oak whose trunk [remaineth] after the felling: the holy seed shall be the trunk thereof.

Psalms 105:23-26
23. And Israel came into Egypt, and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24. And he made his people exceeding fruitful, and made them mightier than their oppressors.
25. He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.
26. He sent Moses his servant, [and] Aaron whom he had chosen:

Proverbs 24:28-29
28. Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and wouldest thou deceive with thy lips?
29. Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me, I will render to the man according to his work.

1 Corinthians 15:29-58
29. Since what shall the baptised for the dead do if [those that are] dead rise not at all? why also are they baptised for them?
30. Why do *we* also endanger ourselves every hour?
31. Daily I die, by your boasting which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord.
32. If, [to speak] after the manner of man, I have fought with beasts in Ephesus, what is the profit to me if [those that are] dead do not rise? let us eat and drink; for to-morrow we die.
33. Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
34. Awake up righteously, and sin not; for some are ignorant of God: I speak to you as a matter of shame.
35. But some one will say, How are the dead raised? and with what body do they come?
36. Fool; what *thou* sowest is not quickened unless it die.
37. And what thou sowest, thou sowest not the body that shall be, but a bare grain: it may be of wheat, or some one of the rest:
38. and God gives to it a body as he has pleased, and to each of the seeds its own body.
39. Every flesh [is] not the same flesh, but one [is] of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another [flesh] of birds, and another of fishes.
40. And [there are] heavenly bodies, and earthly bodies: but different is the glory of the heavenly, different that of the earthly:
41. one [the] sun's glory, and another [the] moon's glory, and another [the] stars' glory; for star differs from star in glory.
42. Thus also [is] the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruptibility.
43. It is sown in dishonour, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power.
44. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body: if there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual [one].
45. Thus also it is written, The first man Adam became a living soul; the last Adam a quickening spirit.
46. But that which is spiritual [was] not first, but that which is natural, then that which is spiritual:
47. the first man out of [the] earth, made of dust; the second man, out of heaven.
48. Such as he made of dust, such also those made of dust; and such as the heavenly [one], such also the heavenly [ones].
49. And as we have borne the image of the [one] made of dust, we shall bear also the image of the heavenly [one].
50. But this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit God's kingdom, nor does corruption inherit incorruptibility.
51. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all fall asleep, but we shall all be changed,
52. in an instant, in [the] twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and *we* shall be changed.
53. For this corruptible must needs put on incorruptibility, and this mortal put on immortality.
54. But when this corruptible shall have put on incorruptibility, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the word written: Death has been swallowed up in victory.
55. Where, O death, [is] thy sting? where, O death, thy victory?
56. Now the sting of death [is] sin, and the power of sin the law;
57. but thanks to God, who gives us the victory by our Lord Jesus Christ.
58. So then, my beloved brethren, be firm, immovable, abounding always in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in [the] Lord.
