2 Kings 14:1-29
1. In the second year of Joash son of Joahaz king of Israel, Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah became king.
2. He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jehoaddin of Jerusalem.
3. He did right in the sight of the LORD, yet not like David his father; he did according to all that Joash his father had done.
4. Only the high places were not taken away; the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places.
5. Now it came about, as soon as the kingdom was firmly in his hand, that he killed his servants who had slain the king his father.
6. But the sons of the slayers he did not put to death, according to what is written in the book of the Law of Moses, as the LORD commanded, saying, "The fathers shall not be put to death for the sons, nor the sons be put to death for the fathers; but each shall be put to death for his own sin."
7. He killed of Edom in the Valley of Salt 10,000 and took Sela by war, and named it Joktheel to this day.
8. Then Amaziah sent messengers to Jehoash, the son of Jehoahaz son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying, "Come, let us face each other."
9. Jehoash king of Israel sent to Amaziah king of Judah, saying, "The thorn bush which was in Lebanon sent to the cedar which was in Lebanon, saying, 'Give your daughter to my son in marriage.' But there passed by a wild beast that was in Lebanon, and trampled the thorn bush.
10. "You have indeed defeated Edom, and your heart has become proud. Enjoy your glory and stay at home; for why should you provoke trouble so that you, even you, would fall, and Judah with you?"
11. But Amaziah would not listen. So Jehoash king of Israel went up; and he and Amaziah king of Judah faced each other at Beth-shemesh, which belongs to Judah.
12. Judah was defeated by Israel, and they fled each to his tent.
13. Then Jehoash king of Israel captured Amaziah king of Judah, the son of Jehoash the son of Ahaziah, at Beth-shemesh, and came to Jerusalem and tore down the wall of Jerusalem from the Gate of Ephraim to the Corner Gate, 400 cubits.
14. He took all the gold and silver and all the utensils which were found in the house of the LORD, and in the treasuries of the king's house, the hostages also, and returned to Samaria.
15. Now the rest of the acts of Jehoash which he did, and his might and how he fought with Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel?
16. So Jehoash slept with his fathers and was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel; and Jeroboam his son became king in his place.
17. Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived fifteen years after the death of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel.
18. Now the rest of the acts of Amaziah, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah?
19. They conspired against him in Jerusalem, and he fled to Lachish; but they sent after him to Lachish and killed him there.
20. Then they brought him on horses and he was buried at Jerusalem with his fathers in the city of David.
21. All the people of Judah took Azariah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the place of his father Amaziah.
22. He built Elath and restored it to Judah after the king slept with his fathers.
23. In the fifteenth year of Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah, Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel became king in Samaria, and reigned forty-one years.
24. He did evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not depart from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel sin.
25. He restored the border of Israel from the entrance of Hamath as far as the Sea of the Arabah, according to the word of the LORD, the God of Israel, which He spoke through His servant Jonah the son of Amittai, the prophet, who was of Gath-hepher.
26. For the LORD saw the affliction of Israel, which was very bitter; for there was neither bond nor free, nor was there any helper for Israel.
27. The LORD did not say that He would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven, but He saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash.
28. Now the rest of the acts of Jeroboam and all that he did and his might, how he fought and how he recovered for Israel, Damascus and Hamath, which had belonged to Judah, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel?
29. And Jeroboam slept with his fathers, even with the kings of Israel, and Zechariah his son became king in his place.

Psalms 73:10-20
10. Therefore his people return to this place, And waters of abundance are drunk by them.
11. They say, "How does God know? And is there knowledge with the Most High?"
12. Behold, these are the wicked; And always at ease, they have increased in wealth.
13. Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure And washed my hands in innocence;
14. For I have been stricken all day long And chastened every morning.
15. If I had said, "I will speak thus," Behold, I would have betrayed the generation of Your children.
16. When I pondered to understand this, It was troublesome in my sight
17. Until I came into the sanctuary of God; Then I perceived their end.
18. Surely You set them in slippery places; You cast them down to destruction.
19. How they are destroyed in a moment! They are utterly swept away by sudden terrors!
20. Like a dream when one awakes, O Lord, when aroused, You will despise their form.

Proverbs 18:18-19
18. The cast lot puts an end to strife And decides between the mighty ones.
19. A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city, And contentions are like the bars of a citadel.

John 20:1-31
1. Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came early to the tomb, while it was still dark, and saw the stone already taken away from the tomb.
2. So she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him."
3. So Peter and the other disciple went forth, and they were going to the tomb.
4. The two were running together; and the other disciple ran ahead faster than Peter and came to the tomb first;
5. and stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings lying there; but he did not go in.
6. And so Simon Peter also came, following him, and entered the tomb; and he saw the linen wrappings lying there,
7. and the face-cloth which had been on His head, not lying with the linen wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself.
8. So the other disciple who had first come to the tomb then also entered, and he saw and believed.
9. For as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.
10. So the disciples went away again to their own homes.
11. But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb;
12. and she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying.
13. And they said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him."
14. When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus.
15. Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" Supposing Him to be the gardener, she said to Him, "Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away."
16. Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned and said to Him in Hebrew, "Rabboni!" (which means, Teacher).
17. Jesus said to her, "Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, 'I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.'"
18. Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord," and that He had said these things to her.
19. So when it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, "Peace be with you."
20. And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
21. So Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you."
22. And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
23. "If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained."
24. But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
25. So the other disciples were saying to him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe."
26. After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said, "Peace be with you."
27. Then He said to Thomas, "Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing."
28. Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"
29. Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed."
30. Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book;
31. but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.
