Isaiah 63:1-19
1. Who is this coming from Edom in crimson-stained garments from Bozrah-- this One who is splendid in His apparel, rising up proudly in His great might? It is I, proclaiming vindication, powerful to save.
2. Why is Your clothing red, and Your garments like one who treads a winepress?
3. I trampled the winepress alone, and no one from the nations was with Me. I trampled them in My anger and ground them underfoot in My fury; their blood spattered My garments, and all My clothes were stained.
4. For I planned the day of vengeance, and the year of My redemption came.
5. I looked, but there was no one to help, and I was amazed that no one assisted; so My arm accomplished victory for Me, and My wrath assisted Me.
6. I crushed nations in My anger; I made them drunk with My wrath and poured out their blood on the ground.
7. I will make known the LORD's faithful love [and] the LORD's praiseworthy acts, because of all the LORD has done for us-- even the many good things [He has done] for the house of Israel and has done for them based on His compassions and the abundance of His faithful love.
8. He said, "They are indeed My people, children who will not be disloyal," and He became their Savior.
9. In all their suffering, He suffered, and the Angel of His Presence saved them. He redeemed them because of His love and compassion; He lifted them up and carried them all the days of the past.
10. But they rebelled, and grieved His Holy Spirit. So He became their enemy [and] fought against them.
11. Then He remembered the days of the past, [the days] of Moses [and] his people. Where is He who brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of His flock? Where is He who put His Holy Spirit among the flock?
12. He sent His glorious arm at Moses' right hand, divided the waters before them to obtain eternal fame for Himself,
13. and led them through the depths like a horse in the wilderness, so that they did not stumble.
14. Like cattle that go down into the valley, the Spirit of the LORD gave them rest. You led Your people this way to make a glorious name for Yourself.
15. Look down from heaven and see from Your lofty home-- holy and beautiful. Where is Your zeal and Your might? Your yearning and Your compassion are withheld from me.
16. Yet You are our Father, even though Abraham does not know us and Israel doesn't recognize us. You, LORD, are our Father; from ancient times, Your name is our Redeemer.
17. Why, LORD, do You make us stray from Your ways? You harden our hearts so we do not fear You. Return, because of Your servants, the tribes of Your heritage.
18. Your holy people had a possession for a little while, [but] our enemies have trampled down Your sanctuary.
19. We have become like those You never ruled over, like those not called by Your name.

Isaiah 64:1-12
1. If only You would tear the heavens open [and] come down, so that mountains would quake at Your presence--
2. as fire kindles the brushwood, and fire causes water to boil-- to make Your name known to Your enemies, so that nations will tremble at Your presence!
3. When You did awesome deeds that we did not expect, You came down, and the mountains quaked at Your presence.
4. From ancient times no one has heard, no one has listened, no eye has seen any God except You, who acts on behalf of the one who waits for Him.
5. You welcome the one who joyfully does what is right; they remember You in Your ways. But we have sinned, and You were angry; we will remain in Your ways and be saved.
6. All of us have become like something unclean, and all our righteous acts are like a polluted garment; all of us wither like a leaf, and our iniquities carry us away like the wind.
7. No one calls on Your name, striving to take hold of You. For You have hidden Your face from us and made us melt because ofour iniquity.
8. Yet LORD, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You are our potter; we all are the work of Your hands.
9. LORD, do not be terribly angry or remember [our] iniquity forever. Please look-- all of us are Your people!
10. Your holy cities have become a wilderness; Zion has become a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.
11. Our holy and beautiful temple, where our fathers praised You, has been burned with fire, and all that was dear to us lies in ruins.
12. LORD, after all this, will You restrain Yourself? Will You keep silent and afflict severely?

Psalms 115:14-18
14. May the LORD add to [your numbers], both yours and your children's.
15. May you be blessed by the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
16. The heavens are the LORD's, but the earth He has given to the human race.
17. It is not the dead who praise the LORD, nor any of those descending into the silence [of death].
18. But we will praise the LORD, both now and forever. Hallelujah!

Proverbs 26:27-27
27. The one who digs a pit will fall into it, and whoever rolls a stone-- it will come back on him.

Philippians 1:1-30
1. Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus: To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons.
2. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3. I give thanks to my God for every remembrance of you,
4. always praying with joy for all of you in my every prayer,
5. because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.
6. I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
7. It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because I have you in my heart, and you are all partners with me in grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and establishment of the gospel.
8. For God is my witness, how I deeply miss all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
9. And I pray this: that your love will keep on growing in knowledge and every kind of discernment,
10. so that you can determine what really matters and can be pure and blameless in the day of Christ,
11. filled with the fruit of righteousness that [comes] through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
12. Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has actually resulted in the advancement of the gospel,
13. so that it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard, and to everyone else, that my imprisonment is for Christ.
14. Most of the brothers in the Lord have gained confidence from my imprisonment and dare even more to speak the message fearlessly.
15. Some, to be sure, preach Christ out of envy and strife, but others out of good will.
16. These do so out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel;
17. the others proclaim Christ out of rivalry, not sincerely, seeking to cause [me] trouble in my imprisonment.
18. What does it matter? Just that in every way, whether out of false motives or true, Christ is proclaimed. And in this I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice
19. because I know this will lead to my deliverance through your prayers and help from the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
20. My eager expectation and hope is that I will not be ashamed about anything, but that now as always, with all boldness, Christ will be highly honored in my body, whether by life or by death.
21. For me, living is Christ and dying is gain.
22. Now if I live on in the flesh, this means fruitful work for me; and I don't know which one I should choose.
23. I am pressured by both. I have the desire to depart and be with Christ-- which is far better--
24. but to remain in the flesh is more necessary for you.
25. Since I am persuaded of this, I know that I will remain and continue with all of you for your advancement and joy in the faith,
26. so that, because of me, your confidence may grow in Christ Jesus when I come to you again.
27. Just one thing: live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or am absent, I will hear about you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, working side by side for the faith of the gospel,
28. not being frightened in any way by your opponents. This is evidence of their destruction, but of your deliverance-- and this is from God.
29. For it has been given to you on Christ's behalf not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for Him,
30. having the same struggle that you saw I had and now hear about me.
