Song of Solomon 1:1-17
1. The Song of Songs, which is Solomon's.
2. "May he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! For your love is better than wine.
3. "Your oils have a pleasing fragrance, Your name is like purified oil; Therefore the maidens love you.
4. "Draw me after you and let us run together! The king has brought me into his chambers. We will rejoice in you and be glad; We will extol your love more than wine. Rightly do they love you."
5. "I am black but lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem, Like the tents of Kedar, Like the curtains of Solomon.
6. "Do not stare at me because I am swarthy, For the sun has burned me. My mother's sons were angry with me; They made me caretaker of the vineyards, But I have not taken care of my own vineyard.
7. "Tell me, O you whom my soul loves, Where do you pasture your flock, Where do you make it lie down at noon? For why should I be like one who veils herself Beside the flocks of your companions?"
8. "If you yourself do not know, Most beautiful among women, Go forth on the trail of the flock And pasture your young goats By the tents of the shepherds.
9. "To me, my darling, you are like My mare among the chariots of Pharaoh.
10. "Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments, Your neck with strings of beads."
11. "We will make for you ornaments of gold With beads of silver."
12. "While the king was at his table, My perfume gave forth its fragrance.
13. "My beloved is to me a pouch of myrrh Which lies all night between my breasts.
14. "My beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms In the vineyards of Engedi."
15. "How beautiful you are, my darling, How beautiful you are! Your eyes are like doves."
16. "How handsome you are, my beloved, And so pleasant! Indeed, our couch is luxuriant!
17. "The beams of our houses are cedars, Our rafters, cypresses.

Song of Solomon 2:1-17
1. "I am the rose of Sharon, The lily of the valleys."
2. "Like a lily among the thorns, So is my darling among the maidens."
3. "Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest, So is my beloved among the young men. In his shade I took great delight and sat down, And his fruit was sweet to my taste.
4. "He has brought me to his banquet hall, And his banner over me is love.
5. "Sustain me with raisin cakes, Refresh me with apples, Because I am lovesick.
6. "Let his left hand be under my head And his right hand embrace me."
7. "I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, By the gazelles or by the hinds of the field, That you do not arouse or awaken my love Until she pleases."
8. "Listen! My beloved! Behold, he is coming, Climbing on the mountains, Leaping on the hills!
9. "My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. Behold, he is standing behind our wall, He is looking through the windows, He is peering through the lattice.
10. "My beloved responded and said to me, 'Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, And come along.
11. 'For behold, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone.
12. 'The flowers have already appeared in the land; The time has arrived for pruning the vines, And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.
13. 'The fig tree has ripened its figs, And the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance. Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, And come along!'"
14. "O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, In the secret place of the steep pathway, Let me see your form, Let me hear your voice; For your voice is sweet, And your form is lovely."
15. "Catch the foxes for us, The little foxes that are ruining the vineyards, While our vineyards are in blossom."
16. "My beloved is mine, and I am his; He pastures his flock among the lilies.
17. "Until the cool of the day when the shadows flee away, Turn, my beloved, and be like a gazelle Or a young stag on the mountains of Bether."

Psalms 104:1-9
1. Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
2. Covering Yourself with light as with a cloak, Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain.
3. He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters; He makes the clouds His chariot; He walks upon the wings of the wind;
4. He makes the winds His messengers, Flaming fire His ministers.
5. He established the earth upon its foundations, So that it will not totter forever and ever.
6. You covered it with the deep as with a garment; The waters were standing above the mountains.
7. At Your rebuke they fled, At the sound of Your thunder they hurried away.
8. The mountains rose; the valleys sank down To the place which You established for them.
9. You set a boundary that they may not pass over, So that they will not return to cover the earth.

Proverbs 24:15-16
15. Do not lie in wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; Do not destroy his resting place;
16. For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again, But the wicked stumble in time of calamity.

1 Corinthians 11:17-34
17. But in giving this instruction, I do not praise you, because you come together not for the better but for the worse.
18. For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, I hear that divisions exist among you; and in part I believe it.
19. For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become evident among you.
20. Therefore when you meet together, it is not to eat the Lord's Supper,
21. for in your eating each one takes his own supper first; and one is hungry and another is drunk.
22. What! Do you not have houses in which to eat and drink? Or do you despise the church of God and shame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you? In this I will not praise you.
23. For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread;
24. and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
25. In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me."
26. For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes.
27. Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
28. But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
29. For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly.
30. For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep.
31. But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged.
32. But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.
33. So then, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.
34. If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that you will not come together for judgment. The remaining matters I will arrange when I come.
