Deuteronomy 1:1-27
1. These are the words which Moses spoke to all Israel across the Jordan in the wilderness, in the Arabah opposite Suph, between Paran and Tophel and Laban and Hazeroth and Dizahab.
2. It is eleven days' journey from Horeb by the way of Mount Seir to Kadesh-barnea.
3. In the fortieth year, on the first day of the eleventh month, Moses spoke to the children of Israel, according to all that the LORD had commanded him to give to them,
4. after he had defeated Sihon the king of the Amorites, who lived in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, who lived in Ashtaroth and Edrei.
5. Across the Jordan in the land of Moab, Moses undertook to expound this law, saying,
6. "The LORD our God spoke to us at Horeb, saying, 'You have stayed long enough at this mountain.
7. 'Turn and set your journey, and go to the hill country of the Amorites, and to all their neighbors in the Arabah, in the hill country and in the lowland and in the Negev and by the seacoast, the land of the Canaanites, and Lebanon, as far as the great river, the river Euphrates.
8. 'See, I have placed the land before you; go in and possess the land which the LORD swore to give to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to them and their descendants after them.'
9. "I spoke to you at that time, saying, 'I am not able to bear the burden of you alone.
10. 'The LORD your God has multiplied you, and behold, you are this day like the stars of heaven in number.
11. 'May the LORD, the God of your fathers, increase you a thousand-fold more than you are and bless you, just as He has promised you!
12. 'How can I alone bear the load and burden of you and your strife?
13. 'Choose wise and discerning and experienced men from your tribes, and I will appoint them as your heads.'
14. "You answered me and said, 'The thing which you have said to do is good.'
15. "So I took the heads of your tribes, wise and experienced men, and appointed them heads over you, leaders of thousands and of hundreds, of fifties and of tens, and officers for your tribes.
16. "Then I charged your judges at that time, saying, 'Hear the cases between your fellow countrymen, and judge righteously between a man and his fellow countryman, or the alien who is with him.
17. 'You shall not show partiality in judgment; you shall hear the small and the great alike. You shall not fear man, for the judgment is God's. The case that is too hard for you, you shall bring to me, and I will hear it.'
18. "I commanded you at that time all the things that you should do.
19. "Then we set out from Horeb, and went through all that great and terrible wilderness which you saw on the way to the hill country of the Amorites, just as the LORD our God had commanded us; and we came to Kadesh-barnea.
20. "I said to you, 'You have come to the hill country of the Amorites which the LORD our God is about to give us.
21. 'See, the LORD your God has placed the land before you; go up, take possession, as the LORD, the God of your fathers, has spoken to you. Do not fear or be dismayed.'
22. "Then all of you approached me and said, 'Let us send men before us, that they may search out the land for us, and bring back to us word of the way by which we should go up and the cities which we shall enter.'
23. "The thing pleased me and I took twelve of your men, one man for each tribe.
24. "They turned and went up into the hill country, and came to the valley of Eshcol and spied it out.
25. "Then they took some of the fruit of the land in their hands and brought it down to us; and they brought us back a report and said, 'It is a good land which the LORD our God is about to give us.'
26. "Yet you were not willing to go up, but rebelled against the command of the LORD your God;
27. and you grumbled in your tents and said, 'Because the LORD hates us, He has brought us out of the land of Egypt to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites to destroy us.

Deuteronomy 2:1-37
1. "Then we turned and set out for the wilderness by the way to the Red Sea, as the LORD spoke to me, and circled Mount Seir for many days.
2. "And the LORD spoke to me, saying,
3. 'You have circled this mountain long enough. Now turn north,
4. and command the people, saying, "You will pass through the territory of your brothers the sons of Esau who live in Seir; and they will be afraid of you. So be very careful;
5. do not provoke them, for I will not give you any of their land, even as little as a footstep because I have given Mount Seir to Esau as a possession.
6. "You shall buy food from them with money so that you may eat, and you shall also purchase water from them with money so that you may drink.
7. "For the LORD your God has blessed you in all that you have done; He has known your wanderings through this great wilderness. These forty years the LORD your God has been with you; you have not lacked a thing."'
8. "So we passed beyond our brothers the sons of Esau, who live in Seir, away from the Arabah road, away from Elath and from Ezion-geber. And we turned and passed through by the way of the wilderness of Moab.
9. "Then the LORD said to me, 'Do not harass Moab, nor provoke them to war, for I will not give you any of their land as a possession, because I have given Ar to the sons of Lot as a possession.
10. (The Emim lived there formerly, a people as great, numerous, and tall as the Anakim.
11. Like the Anakim, they are also regarded as Rephaim, but the Moabites call them Emim.
12. The Horites formerly lived in Seir, but the sons of Esau dispossessed them and destroyed them from before them and settled in their place, just as Israel did to the land of their possession which the LORD gave to them.)
13. 'Now arise and cross over the brook Zered yourselves.' So we crossed over the brook Zered.
14. "Now the time that it took for us to come from Kadesh-barnea until we crossed over the brook Zered was thirty-eight years, until all the generation of the men of war perished from within the camp, as the LORD had sworn to them.
15. "Moreover the hand of the LORD was against them, to destroy them from within the camp until they all perished.
16. "So it came about when all the men of war had finally perished from among the people,
17. that the LORD spoke to me, saying,
18. 'Today you shall cross over Ar, the border of Moab.
19. 'When you come opposite the sons of Ammon, do not harass them nor provoke them, for I will not give you any of the land of the sons of Ammon as a possession, because I have given it to the sons of Lot as a possession.'
20. (It is also regarded as the land of the Rephaim, for Rephaim formerly lived in it, but the Ammonites call them Zamzummin,
21. a people as great, numerous, and tall as the Anakim, but the LORD destroyed them before them. And they dispossessed them and settled in their place,
22. just as He did for the sons of Esau, who live in Seir, when He destroyed the Horites from before them; they dispossessed them and settled in their place even to this day.
23. And the Avvim, who lived in villages as far as Gaza, the Caphtorim who came from Caphtor, destroyed them and lived in their place.)
24. 'Arise, set out, and pass through the valley of Arnon. Look! I have given Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land into your hand; begin to take possession and contend with him in battle.
25. 'This day I will begin to put the dread and fear of you upon the peoples everywhere under the heavens, who, when they hear the report of you, will tremble and be in anguish because of you.'
26. "So I sent messengers from the wilderness of Kedemoth to Sihon king of Heshbon with words of peace, saying,
27. 'Let me pass through your land, I will travel only on the highway; I will not turn aside to the right or to the left.
28. 'You will sell me food for money so that I may eat, and give me water for money so that I may drink, only let me pass through on foot,
29. just as the sons of Esau who live in Seir and the Moabites who live in Ar did for me, until I cross over the Jordan into the land which the LORD our God is giving to us.'
30. "But Sihon king of Heshbon was not willing for us to pass through his land; for the LORD your God hardened his spirit and made his heart obstinate, in order to deliver him into your hand, as he is today.
31. "The LORD said to me, 'See, I have begun to deliver Sihon and his land over to you. Begin to occupy, that you may possess his land.'
32. "Then Sihon with all his people came out to meet us in battle at Jahaz.
33. "The LORD our God delivered him over to us, and we defeated him with his sons and all his people.
34. "So we captured all his cities at that time and utterly destroyed the men, women and children of every city. We left no survivor.
35. "We took only the animals as our booty and the spoil of the cities which we had captured.
36. "From Aroer which is on the edge of the valley of Arnon and from the city which is in the valley, even to Gilead, there was no city that was too high for us; the LORD our God delivered all over to us.
37. "Only you did not go near to the land of the sons of Ammon, all along the river Jabbok and the cities of the hill country, and wherever the LORD our God had commanded us.

Psalms 36:1-6
1. Transgression speaks to the ungodly within his heart; There is no fear of God before his eyes.
2. For it flatters him in his own eyes Concerning the discovery of his iniquity and the hatred of it.
3. The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; He has ceased to be wise and to do good.
4. He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He does not despise evil.
5. Your lovingkindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
6. Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; Your judgments are like a great deep. O LORD, You preserve man and beast.

Proverbs 12:4-6
4. An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, But she who shames him is like rottenness in his bones.
5. The thoughts of the righteous are just, But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.
6. The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, But the mouth of the upright will deliver them.

Mark 16:1-20
1. When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, so that they might come and anoint Him.
2. Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen.
3. They were saying to one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?"
4. Looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was extremely large.
5. Entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right, wearing a white robe; and they were amazed.
6. And he said to them, "Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him.
7. "But go, tell His disciples and Peter, 'He is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He told you.'"
8. They went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had gripped them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
9. [ Now after He had risen early on the first day of the week, He first appeared to Mary Magdalene, from whom He had cast out seven demons.
10. She went and reported to those who had been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping.
11. When they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they refused to believe it.
12. After that, He appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking along on their way to the country.
13. They went away and reported it to the others, but they did not believe them either.
14. Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen.
15. And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
16. "He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.
17. "These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues;
18. they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
19. So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.
20. And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.] [ And they promptly reported all these instructions to Peter and his companions. And after that, Jesus Himself sent out through them from east to west the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation.]
