2 Kings 16:1-20
1. In the seventeenth year of Pekah son of Remaliah, Ahaz son of Jotham became king of Judah.
2. Ahaz was 20 years old when he became king; he reigned 16 years in Jerusalem. He did not do what was right in the sight of the LORD his God like his ancestor David
3. but walked in the way of the kings of Israel. He even made his son pass through the fire, imitating the abominations of the nations the LORD had dispossessed before the Israelites.
4. He sacrificed and burned incense on the high places, on the hills, and under every green tree.
5. Then Aram's King Rezin and Israel's King Pekah son of Remaliah came to wage war against Jerusalem. They besieged Ahaz but were not able to conquer him.
6. At that time Rezin king of Aram recovered Elath for Aram and expelled the Judahites from Elath. Then the Arameans came to Elath, and they live there until today.
7. So Ahaz sent messengers to Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria, saying, "I am your servant and your son. March up and save me from the power of the king of Aram and of the king of Israel, who are rising up against me."
8. Ahaz also took the silver and gold found in the LORD's temple and in the treasuries of the king's palace and sent [them] to the king of Assyria as a gift.
9. So the king of Assyria listened to him and marched up to Damascus and captured it. He deported its people to Kir but put Rezin to death.
10. King Ahaz went to Damascus to meet Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria. When he saw the altar that was in Damascus, King Ahaz sent a model of the altar and complete plans for its construction to Uriah the priest.
11. Uriah built the altar according to all [the instructions] King Ahaz sent from Damascus. Therefore, by the time King Ahaz came back from Damascus, Uriah the priest had made it.
12. When the king came back from Damascus, he saw the altar. Then he approached the altar and ascended it.
13. He offered his burnt offering and his grain offering, poured out his drink offering, and sprinkled the blood of his fellowship offerings on the altar.
14. He took the bronze altar that was before the LORD in front of the temple between [his] altar and the LORD's temple, and put it on the north side of [his] altar.
15. Then King Ahaz commanded Uriah the priest, "Offer on the great altar the morning burnt offering, the evening grain offering, and the king's burnt offering and his grain offering. [Also offer] the burnt offering of all the people of the land, their grain offering, and their drink offerings. Sprinkle on the altar all the blood of the burnt offering and all the blood of sacrifice. The bronze altar will be for me to seek guidance."
16. Uriah the priest did everything King Ahaz commanded.
17. Then King Ahaz cut off the frames of the water carts and removed the bronze basin from [each of] them. He took the reservoirfrom the bronze oxen that were under it and put it on a stone pavement.
18. To satisfy the king of Assyria, he removed from the LORD's temple the Sabbath canopy they had built in the palace, and [he closed] the outer entrance for the king.
19. The rest of the events of Ahaz's [reign], along with his accomplishments, are written about in the Historical Record of Judah's Kings.
20. Ahaz rested with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David, and his son Hezekiah became king in his place.

Psalms 73:21-28
21. When I became embittered and my innermost being was wounded,
22. I was a fool and didn't understand; I was an unthinking animal toward You.
23. Yet I am always with You; You hold my right hand.
24. You guide me with Your counsel, and afterwards You will take me up in glory.
25. Whom do I have in heaven but You? And I desire nothing on earth but You.
26. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart, my portion forever.
27. Those far from You will certainly perish; You destroy all who are unfaithful to You.
28. But as for me, God's presence is my good. I have made the Lord God my refuge, so I can tell about all You do.

Proverbs 18:20-21
20. From the fruit of his mouth a man's stomach is satisfied; he is filled with the product of his lips.
21. Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

John 21:1-25
1. After this, Jesus revealed Himself again to His disciples by the Sea of Tiberias. He revealed Himself in this way:
2. Simon Peter, Thomas (called "Twin"), Nathanael from Cana of Galilee, Zebedee's sons, and two others of His disciples were together.
3. "I'm going fishing," Simon Peter said to them. "We're coming with you," they told him. They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.
4. When daybreak came, Jesus stood on the shore. However, the disciples did not know it was Jesus.
5. "Men," Jesus called to them, "you don't have any fish, do you?" "No," they answered.
6. "Cast the net on the right side of the boat," He told them, "and you'll find some." So they did, and they were unable to haul it in because of the large number of fish.
7. Therefore the disciple, the one Jesus loved, said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he tied his outer garment around him (for he was stripped) and plunged into the sea.
8. But since they were not far from land (about 100 yards away), the other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish.
9. When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire there, with fish lying on it, and bread.
10. "Bring some of the fish you've just caught," Jesus told them.
11. So Simon Peter got up and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish-- 153 of them. Even though there were so many, the net was not torn.
12. "Come and have breakfast," Jesus told them. None of the disciples dared ask Him, "Who are You?" because they knew it was the Lord.
13. Jesus came, took the bread, and gave it to them. He did the same with the fish.
14. This was now the third time Jesus appeared to the disciples after He was raised from the dead.
15. When they had eaten breakfast, Jesus asked Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?" "Yes, Lord," he said to Him, "You know that I love You." "Feed My lambs," He told him.
16. A second time He asked him, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" "Yes, Lord," he said to Him, "You know that I love You." "Shepherd My sheep," He told him.
17. He asked him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved that He asked him the third time, "Do you love Me?" He said, "Lord, You know everything! You know that I love You." "Feed My sheep," Jesus said.
18. "I assure you: When you were young, you would tie your belt and walk wherever you wanted. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will tie you and carry you where you don't want to go."
19. He said this to signify by what kind of death he would glorify God. After saying this, He told him, "Follow Me!"
20. So Peter turned around and saw the disciple Jesus loved following them. [That disciple] was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and asked, "Lord, who is the one that's going to betray You?"
21. When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, "Lord-- what about him?"
22. "If I want him to remain until I come," Jesus answered, "what is that to you? As for you, follow Me."
23. So this report spread to the brothers that this disciple would not die. Yet Jesus did not tell him that he would not die, but, "If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?"
24. This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.
25. And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which, if they were written one by one, I suppose not even the world itself could contain the books that would be written.
