Isaiah 55:1-13
1. "Come, everyone who is thirsty, come to the waters; and you without money, come, buy, and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost!
2. Why do you spend money on what is not food, and your wages on what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and you will enjoy the choicest of foods.
3. Pay attention and come to Me; listen, so that you will live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, the promises assured to David.
4. Since I have made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples,
5. so you will summon a nation you do not know, and nations who do not know you will run to you. For the LORD your God, even the Holy One of Israel, has glorified you."
6. Seek the LORD while He may be found; call to Him while He is near.
7. Let the wicked one abandon his way, and the sinful one his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, so He may have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will freely forgive.
8. "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways." [This is] the LORD's declaration.
9. "For as heaven is higher than earth, so My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
10. For just as rain and snow fall from heaven, and do not return there without saturating the earth, and making it germinate and sprout, and providing seed to sow and food to eat,
11. so My word that comes from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please, and will prosper in what I send it [to do]."
12. You will indeed go out with joy and be peacefully guided; the mountains and the hills will break into singing before you, and all the trees of the field will clap [their] hands.
13. Instead of the thornbush, a cypress will come up, and instead of the brier, a myrtle will come up; it will make a name for the LORD as an everlasting sign that will not be destroyed.

Isaiah 56:1-12
1. This is what the LORD says: Preserve justice and do what is right, for My salvation is coming soon, and My righteousness will be revealed.
2. Happy is the man who does this, anyone who maintains this, who keeps the Sabbath without desecrating it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.
3. No foreigner who has converted to the LORD should say, "The LORD will exclude me from His people"; and the eunuch should not say, "Look, I am a dried-up tree."
4. For the LORD says this: "For the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths, and choose what pleases Me, and hold firmly to My covenant,
5. I will give them, in My house and within My walls, a memorial and a name better than sons and daughters. I will give each [of them] an everlasting name that will never be cut off.
6. And the foreigners who convert to the LORD, minister to Him, love the LORD's name, and are His servants, all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it, and who hold firmly to My covenant--
7. I will bring them to My holy mountain and let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar, for My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations."
8. [This is] the declaration of the Lord God, who gathers the dispersed of Israel: "I will gather to them still others besides those already gathered."
9. All you animals of the field and forest, come and eat!
10. Israel's watchmen are blind, all of them, they know nothing; all of them are mute dogs, they cannot bark; they dream, lie down, and love to sleep.
11. These dogs have fierce appetites; they never have enough. And they are shepherds who have no discernment; all of them turn to their own way, every last one for his own gain.
12. "Come, let me get [some] wine, let's guzzle [some] beer; and tomorrow will be like today, only far better!"

Psalms 113:5-9
5. Who is like the LORD our God-- the One enthroned on high,
6. who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?
7. He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the garbage pile
8. in order to seat them with nobles-- with the nobles of His people.
9. He gives the childless woman a household, [making her] the joyful mother of children. Hallelujah!

Proverbs 26:20-21
20. Without wood, fire goes out; without a gossip, conflict dies down.
21. As charcoal for embers and wood for fire, so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife.

Ephesians 4:1-32
1. I, therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, urge you to walk worthy of the calling you have received,
2. with all humility and gentleness, with patience, accepting one another in love,
3. diligently keeping the unity of the Spirit with the peace that binds [us].
4. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope at your calling;
5. one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6. one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.
7. Now grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of the Messiah's gift.
8. For it says: When He ascended on high, He took prisoners into captivity; He gave gifts to people.
9. But what does "He ascended" mean except that He descended to the lower parts of the earth?
10. The One who descended is the same as the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.
11. And He personally gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers,
12. for the training of the saints in the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ,
13. until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of God's Son, [growing] into a mature man with a stature measured by Christ's fullness.
14. Then we will no longer be little children, tossed by the waves and blown around by every wind of teaching, by human cunning with cleverness in the techniques of deceit.
15. But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head-- Christ.
16. From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part.
17. Therefore, I say this and testify in the Lord: You should no longer walk as the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their thoughts.
18. They are darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them and because of the hardness of their hearts.
19. They became callous and gave themselves over to promiscuity for the practice of every kind of impurity with a desire for more and more.
20. But that is not how you learned about the Messiah,
21. assuming you heard Him and were taught by Him, because the truth is in Jesus:
22. you took off your former way of life, the old man that is corrupted by deceitful desires;
23. you are being renewed in the spirit of your minds;
24. you put on the new man, the one created according to God's [likeness] in righteousness and purity of the truth.
25. Since you put away lying, Speak the truth, each one to his neighbor, because we are members of one another.
26. Be angry and do not sin. Don't let the sun go down on your anger,
27. and don't give the Devil an opportunity.
28. The thief must no longer steal. Instead, he must do honest work with his own hands, so that he has something to share with anyone in need.
29. No rotten talk should come from your mouth, but only what is good for the building up of someone in need, in order to give grace to those who hear.
30. And don't grieve God's Holy Spirit, who sealed you for the day of redemption.
31. All bitterness, anger and wrath, insult and slander must be removed from you, along with all wickedness.
32. And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.
