Isaiah 3:1-26
1. Observe this: The Lord God of Hosts is about to remove from Jerusalem and from Judah every kind of security: the entire supply of bread and water,
2. the hero and warrior, the judge and prophet, the fortune-teller and elder,
3. the commander of 50 and the dignitary, the counselor, cunning magician, and necromancer.
4. "I will make youths their leaders, and the unstable will govern them."
5. The people will oppress one another, man against man, neighbor against neighbor; the youth will act arrogantly toward the elder, and the worthless toward the honorable.
6. A man will even seize his brother in his father's house, [saying:] "You have a cloak-- you be our leader! This heap of rubble will be under your control."
7. On that day he will cry out, saying: "I'm not a healer. I don't even have food or clothing in my house. Don't make me the leader of the people!"
8. For Jerusalem has stumbled and Judah has fallen because they have spoken and acted against the LORD, defying His glorious presence.
9. The look on their faces testifies against them, and like Sodom, they flaunt their sin. They do not conceal it. Woe to them! For they have brought evil on themselves.
10. Tell the righteous that it will go well [for them], for they will eat the fruit of their deeds.
11. Woe to the wicked-- [it will go] badly [for them], for what they have done will be done to them.
12. Youths oppress My people, and women rule over them. My people, your leaders mislead you; they confuse the direction of your paths.
13. The LORD rises to argue the case and stands to judge the people.
14. The LORD brings [this] charge against the elders and leaders of His people: "You have devastated the vineyard. The plunder from the poor is in your houses.
15. Why do you crush My people and grind the faces of the poor?" says the Lord God of Hosts.
16. The LORD also says: Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, walking with heads held high and seductive eyes, going along with prancing steps, jingling their ankle bracelets,
17. the Lord will put scabs on the heads of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will shave their foreheads bare.
18. On that day the Lord will strip their finery: ankle bracelets, headbands, crescents,
19. pendants, bracelets, veils,
20. headdresses, ankle jewelry, sashes, perfume bottles, amulets,
21. signet rings, nose rings,
22. festive robes, capes, cloaks, purses,
23. garments, linen clothes, turbans, and veils.
24. Instead of perfume there will be a stench; instead of a belt, a rope; instead of beautifully styled hair, baldness; instead of fine clothes, sackcloth; instead of beauty, branding.
25. Your men will fall by the sword, your warriors in battle.
26. Then her gates will lament and mourn; deserted, she will sit on the ground.

Isaiah 4:1-6
1. On that day seven women will seize one man, saying, "We will eat our own bread and provide our own clothing. Just let us be called by your name. Take away our disgrace."
2. On that day the branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of Israel's survivors.
3. Whoever remains in Zion and whoever is left in Jerusalem will be called holy-- all in Jerusalem who are destined to live--
4. when the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and cleansed the bloodguilt from the heart of Jerusalem by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of burning.
5. Then the LORD will create a cloud of smoke by day and a glowing flame of fire by night over the entire site of Mount Zion and over its assemblies. For there will be a canopy over all the glory,
6. and there will be a booth for shade from heat by day, and a refuge and shelter from storm and rain.

Psalms 105:7-22
7. He is the LORD our God; His judgments [govern] the whole earth.
8. He forever remembers His covenant, the promise He ordained for a thousand generations--
9. [the covenant] He made with Abraham, swore to Isaac,
10. and confirmed to Jacob as a decree and to Israel as an everlasting covenant:
11. "I will give the land of Canaan to you as your inherited portion."
12. When they were few in number, very few indeed, and temporary residents in Canaan,
13. wandering from nation to nation and from one kingdom to another,
14. He allowed no one to oppress them; He rebuked kings on their behalf:
15. "Do not touch My anointed ones, or harm My prophets."
16. He called down famine against the land and destroyed the entire food supply.
17. He had sent a man ahead of them-- Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
18. They hurt his feet with shackles; his neck was put in an iron collar.
19. Until the time his prediction came true, the word of the LORD tested him.
20. The king sent [for him] and released him; the ruler of peoples set him free.
21. He made him master of his household, ruler over all his possessions--
22. binding his officials at will and instructing his elders.

Proverbs 24:26-27
26. He who gives an honest answer gives a kiss on the lips.
27. Complete your outdoor work, and prepare your field; afterwards, build your house.

1 Corinthians 15:1-28
1. Now brothers, I want to clarify for you the gospel I proclaimed to you; you received it and have taken your stand on it.
2. You are also saved by it, if you hold to the message I proclaimed to you-- unless you believed to no purpose.
3. For I passed on to you as most important what I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
4. that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
5. and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the Twelve.
6. Then He appeared to over 500 brothers at one time, most of whom remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep.
7. Then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles.
8. Last of all, as to one abnormally born, He also appeared to me.
9. For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
10. But by God's grace I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not ineffective. However, I worked more than any of them, yet not I, but God's grace that was with me.
11. Therefore, whether it is I or they, so we preach and so you have believed.
12. Now if Christ is preached as raised from the dead, how can some of you say, "There is no resurrection of the dead"?
13. But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised;
14. and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is without foundation, and so is your faith.
15. In addition, we are found to be false witnesses about God, because we have testified about God that He raised up Christ-- whom He did not raise up if in fact the dead are not raised.
16. For if the dead are not raised, Christ has not been raised.
17. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.
18. Therefore those who have fallen asleep in Christ have also perished.
19. If we have placed our hope in Christ for this life only, we should be pitied more than anyone.
20. But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
21. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead also comes through a man.
22. For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.
23. But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruits; afterward, at His coming, the people of Christ.
24. Then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when He abolishes all rule and all authority and power.
25. For He must reign until He puts all His enemies under His feet.
26. The last enemy to be abolished is death.
27. For He has put everything under His feet. But when it says "everything" is put under Him, it is obvious that He who puts everything under Him is the exception.
28. And when everything is subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.
