Hosea 5:1-15
1. Hear this, O priests! Pay attention, O house of Israel! Give ear, O house of the king! For the judgment is for you; for you have been a snare at Mizpah and a net spread upon Tabor.
2. And the revolters have gone deep into slaughter, but I will discipline all of them.
3. I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hidden from me; for now, O Ephraim, you have played the whore; Israel is defiled.
4. Their deeds do not permit them to return to their God. For the spirit of whoredom is within them, and they know not the LORD.
5. The pride of Israel testifies to his face; Israel and Ephraim shall stumble in his guilt; Judah also shall stumble with them.
6. With their flocks and herds they shall go to seek the LORD, but they will not find him; he has withdrawn from them.
7. They have dealt faithlessly with the LORD; for they have borne alien children. Now the new moon shall devour them with their fields.
8. Blow the horn in Gibeah, the trumpet in Ramah. Sound the alarm at Beth-aven; we follow you, O Benjamin!
9. Ephraim shall become a desolation in the day of punishment; among the tribes of Israel I make known what is sure.
10. The princes of Judah have become like those who move the landmark; upon them I will pour out my wrath like water.
11. Ephraim is oppressed, crushed in judgment, because he was determined to go after filth.
12. But I am like a moth to Ephraim, and like dry rot to the house of Judah.
13. When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah his wound, then Ephraim went to Assyria, and sent to the great king. But he is not able to cure you or heal your wound.
14. For I will be like a lion to Ephraim, and like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I, will tear and go away; I will carry off, and no one shall rescue.
15. I will return again to my place, until they acknowledge their guilt and seek my face, and in their distress earnestly seek me.

Hosea 6:1-11
1. "Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.
2. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him.
3. Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD; his going out is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth."
4. What shall I do with you, O Ephraim? What shall I do with you, O Judah? Your love is like a morning cloud, like the dew that goes early away.
5. Therefore I have hewn them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth, and my judgment goes forth as the light.
6. For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
7. But like Adam they transgressed the covenant; there they dealt faithlessly with me.
8. Gilead is a city of evildoers, tracked with blood.
9. As robbers lie in wait for a man, so the priests band together; they murder on the way to Shechem; they commit villainy.
10. In the house of Israel I have seen a horrible thing; Ephraim's whoredom is there; Israel is defiled.
11. For you also, O Judah, a harvest is appointed, when I restore the fortunes of my people.

Psalms 139:1-6
1. TO THE CHOIRMASTER. A PSALM OF DAVID. O LORD, you have searched me and known me!
2. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar.
3. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways.
4. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.
5. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.
6. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.

Proverbs 29:19-19
19. By mere words a servant is not disciplined, for though he understands, he will not respond.

1 John 5:1-21
1. Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whomever has been born of him.
2. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments.
3. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.
4. For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith.
5. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
6. This is he who came by water and blood- Jesus Christ; not by the water only but by the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
7. For there are three that testify:
8. the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree.
9. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for this is the testimony of God that he has borne concerning his Son.
10. Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son.
11. And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.
14. And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.
15. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.
16. If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask, and God will give him life- to those who commit sins that do not lead to death. There is sin that leads to death; I do not say that one should pray for that.
17. All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that does not lead to death.
18. We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.
19. We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
20. And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
21. Little children, keep yourselves from idols.
