Isaiah 51:1-23
1. Listen to Me, you who pursue righteousness, you who seek the LORD: Look to the rock from which you were cut, and to the quarry from which you were dug.
2. Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who gave birth to you in pain. When I called him, he was only one; I blessed him and made him many.
3. For the LORD will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places, and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and melodious song.
4. Pay attention to Me, My people, and listen to Me, My nation; for instruction will come from Me, and My justice for a light to the nations. I will bring it about quickly.
5. My righteousness is near, My salvation appears, and My arms will bring justice to the nations. The coastlands will put their hope in Me, and they will look to My strength.
6. Look up to the heavens, and look at the earth beneath; for the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment, and its inhabitants will die in like manner. But My salvation will last forever, and My righteousness will never be shattered.
7. Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, the people in whose heart is My instruction: do not fear disgrace by men, and do not be shattered by their taunts.
8. For the moth will devour them like a garment, and the worm will eat them like wool. But My righteousness will last forever, and My salvation for all generations.
9. Wake up, wake up! Put on the strength of the LORD's power. Wake up as in days past, as in generations of long ago. Wasn't it You who hacked Rahab to pieces, who pierced the sea monster?
10. Wasn't it You who dried up the sea, the waters of the great deep, who made the sea-bed into a road for the redeemed to pass over?
11. And the ransomed of the LORD will return and come to Zion with singing, crowned with unending joy. Joy and gladness will overtake [them], and sorrow and sighing will flee.
12. I-- I am the One who comforts you. Who are you that you should fear man who dies, or a son of man who is given up like grass?
13. But you have forgotten the LORD, your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth. You are in constant dread all day long because of the fury of the oppressor, who has set himself to destroy. But where is the fury of the oppressor?
14. The prisoner is soon to be set free; he will not die [and go] to the Pit, and his food will not be lacking.
15. For I am the LORD your God who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar-- His name is Yahweh of Hosts.
16. I have put My words in your mouth, and covered you in the shadow of My hand, in order to plant the heavens, to found the earth, and to say to Zion, "You are My people."
17. Wake yourself, wake yourself up! Stand up, Jerusalem, you who have drunk the cup of His fury from the hand of the LORD; you who have drunk the goblet to the dregs-- the cup that [causes people] to stagger.
18. There is no one to guide her among all the children she has raised; there is no one to take hold of her hand among all the offspring she has brought up.
19. These two things have happened to you: devastation and destruction, famine and sword. Who will grieve for you? How can I comfort you?
20. Your children have fainted; they lie at the head of every street like an antelope in a net. They are full of the LORD's fury, the rebuke of your God.
21. So listen to this, afflicted and drunken one-- but not with wine.
22. This is what your Lord says-- Yahweh, even your God, who defends His people-- "Look, I have removed the cup of staggering from your hand; that goblet, the cup of My fury. You will never drink it again.
23. I will put it into the hands of your tormenters, who said to you: Lie down, so we can walk over you. You made your back like the ground, and like a street for those who walk on it.

Isaiah 52:1-15
1. "Wake up, wake up; put on your strength, Zion! Put on your beautiful garments, Jerusalem, the Holy City! For the uncircumcised and the unclean will no longer enter you.
2. Stand up, shake the dust off yourself! Take your seat, Jerusalem. Remove the bonds from your neck, captive Daughter Zion."
3. For this is what the LORD says: "You were sold for nothing, and you will be redeemed without silver."
4. For this is what the Lord God says: "At first My people went down to Egypt to live there, then Assyria oppressed them without cause.
5. So now what have I here"-- the LORD's declaration-- "that My people are taken away for nothing? Its rulers wail"-- the LORD's declaration-- "and My name is continually blasphemed all day long.
6. Therefore My people will know My name; therefore [they will know] on that day that I am He who says: Here I am."
7. How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the herald, who proclaims peace, who brings news of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
8. The voices of your watchmen-- they lift up their voices, shouting for joy together; for every eye will see when the LORD returns to Zion.
9. Be joyful, rejoice together, you ruins of Jerusalem! For the LORD has comforted His people; He has redeemed Jerusalem.
10. The LORD has displayed His holy arm in the sight of all the nations; all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.
11. Leave, leave, go out from there! Do not touch anything unclean; go out from her, purify yourselves, you who carry the vessels of the LORD.
12. For you will not leave in a hurry, and you will not have to take flight; because the LORD is going before you, and the God of Israel is your rear guard.
13. See, My servant will act wisely; He will be raised and lifted up and greatly exalted.
14. Just as many were appalled at You-- His appearance was so disfigured that He did not look like a man, and His form did not resemble a human being--
15. so He will sprinklemany nations. Kings will shut their mouths because of Him, For they will see what had not been told them, and they will understand what they had not heard.

Psalms 112:5-10
5. Good will come to a man who lends generously and conducts his business fairly.
6. He will never be shaken. The righteous will be remembered forever.
7. He will not fear bad news; his heart is confident, trusting in the LORD.
8. His heart is assured; he will not fear. In the end he will look in triumph on his foes.
9. He distributes freely to the poor; his righteousness endures forever. His horn will be exalted in honor.
10. The wicked man will see [it] and be angry; he will gnash his teeth in despair. The desire of the wicked will come to nothing.

Proverbs 26:16-16
16. In his own eyes, a slacker is wiser than seven men who can answer sensibly.

Ephesians 2:1-22
1. And you were dead in your trespasses and sins
2. in which you previously walked according to this worldly age, according to the ruler of the atmospheric domain, the spirit now working in the disobedient.
3. We too all previously lived among them in our fleshly desires, carrying out the inclinations of our flesh and thoughts, and by nature we were children under wrath, as the others were also.
4. But God, who is abundant in mercy, because of His great love that He had for us,
5. made us alive with the Messiah even though we were dead in trespasses. By grace you are saved!
6. He also raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavens, in Christ Jesus,
7. so that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace in [His] kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
8. For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift--
9. not from works, so that no one can boast.
10. For we are His creation-- created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.
11. So then, remember that at one time you were Gentiles in the flesh-- called "the uncircumcised" by those called "the circumcised," done by hand in the flesh.
12. At that time you were without the Messiah, excluded from the citizenship of Israel, and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, with no hope and without God in the world.
13. But now in Christ Jesus, you who were far away have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah.
14. For He is our peace, who made both groups one and tore down the dividing wall of hostility. In His flesh,
15. He did away with the law of the commandments in regulations, so that He might create in Himself one new man from the two, resulting in peace.
16. [He did this so] that He might reconcile both to God in one body through the cross and put the hostility to death by it.
17. When [Christ] came, He proclaimed the good news of peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near.
18. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
19. So then you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with the saints, and members of God's household,
20. built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the cornerstone.
21. The whole building is being fitted together in Him and is growing into a holy sanctuary in the Lord,
22. in whom you also are being built together for God's dwelling in the Spirit.
