Isaiah 63:1-19
1. Who is this that comes from Edom, in crimsoned garments, from Bozrah- This one arrayed in majesty, marching in the greatness of his strength? "It is I, I who announce vindication, I who am mighty to save."
2. Why is your apparel red, and your garments like those of the wine presser?
3. "The wine press I have trodden alone, and of my people there was no one with me. I trod them in my anger, and trampled them down in my wrath; Their blood spurted on my garments; all my apparel I stained.
4. For the day of vengeance was in my heart, my year for redeeming was at hand.
5. I looked about, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that there was no one to lend support; So my own arm brought about the victory and my own wrath lent me its support.
6. I trampled down the peoples in my anger, I crushed them in my wrath, and I let their blood run out upon the ground."
7. The favors of the LORD I will recall, the glorious deeds of the LORD, Because of all he has done for us; for he is good to the house of Israel, He has favored us according to his mercy and his great kindness.
8. He said: They are indeed my people, children who are not disloyal; So he became their savior
9. in their every affliction. It was not a messenger or an angel, but he himself who saved them. Because of his love and pity he redeemed them himself, Lifting them and carrying them all the days of old.
10. But they rebelled, and grieved his holy spirit; So he turned on them like an enemy, and fought against them.
11. Then they remembered the days of old and Moses, his servant; Where is he who brought up out of the sea the shepherd of his flock? Where is he who put his holy spirit in their midst;
12. Whose glorious arm was the guide at Moses' right; Who divided the waters before them, winning for himself eternal renown;
13. Who led them without stumbling through the depths like horses in the open country,
14. Like cattle going down into the plain, the spirit of the LORD guiding them? Thus you led your people, bringing glory to your name.
15. Look down from heaven and regard us from your holy and glorious palace! Where is your zealous care and your might, your surge of pity and your mercy? O Lord, hold not back,
16. for you are our father. Were Abraham not to know us, nor Israel to acknowledge us, You, LORD, are our father, our redeemer you are named forever.
17. Why do you let us wander, O LORD, from your ways, and harden our hearts so that we fear you not? Return for the sake of your servants, the tribes of your heritage.
18. Why have the wicked invaded your holy place, why have our enemies trampled your sanctuary?
19. Too long have we been like those you do not rule, who do not bear your name. Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, with the mountains quaking before you,

Isaiah 64:1-12
1. As when brushwood is set ablaze, or fire makes the water boil! Thus your name would be made known to your enemies and the nations would tremble before you,
2. While you wrought awesome deeds we could not hope for,
3. such as they had not heard of from of old. No ear has ever heard, no eye ever seen, any God but you doing such deeds for those who wait for him.
4. Would that you might meet us doing right, that we were mindful of you in our ways! Behold, you are angry, and we are sinful;
5. all of us have become like unclean men, all our good deeds are like polluted rags; We have all withered like leaves, and our guilt carries us away like the wind.
6. There is none who calls upon your name, who rouses himself to cling to you; For you have hidden your face from us and have delivered us up to our guilt.
7. Yet, O LORD, you are our father; we are the clay and you the potter: we are all the work of your hands.
8. Be not so very angry, LORD, keep not our guilt forever in mind; look upon us, who are all your people.
9. Your holy cities have become a desert, Zion is a desert, Jerusalem a waste.
10. Our holy and glorious temple in which our fathers praised you Has been burned with fire; all that was dear to us is laid waste.
11. Can you hold back, O LORD, after all this? Can you remain silent, and afflict us so severely?
12. May the LORD increase your number, you and your descendants.

Psalms 115:14-18
14. May you be blessed by the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
15. The heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth is given to us.
16. The dead do not praise the LORD, all those gone down into silence.
17. It is we who bless the LORD, both now and forever. Hallelujah!
18. He who digs a pit falls into it; and a stone comes back upon him who rolls it.

Proverbs 26:27-27
27. Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus, to all the holy ones in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with the overseers and ministers:

Philippians 1:1-30
1. grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2. I give thanks to my God at every remembrance of you,
3. praying always with joy in my every prayer for all of you,
4. because of your partnership for the gospel from the first day until now.
5. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete it until the day of Christ Jesus.
6. It is right that I should think this way about all of you, because I hold you in my heart, you who are all partners with me in grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.
7. For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
8. And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more and more in knowledge and every kind of perception,
9. to discern what is of value, so that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,
10. filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.
11. I want you to know, brothers, that my situation has turned out rather to advance the gospel,
12. so that my imprisonment has become well known in Christ throughout the whole praetorium and to all the rest,
13. and so that the majority of the brothers, having taken encouragement in the Lord from my imprisonment, dare more than ever to proclaim the word fearlessly.
14. Of course, some preach Christ from envy and rivalry, others from good will.
15. The latter act out of love, aware that I am here for the defense of the gospel;
16. the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not from pure motives, thinking that they will cause me trouble in my imprisonment.
17. What difference does it make, as long as in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is being proclaimed? And in that I rejoice. Indeed I shall continue to rejoice,
18. for I know that this will result in deliverance for me through your prayers and support from the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
19. My eager expectation and hope is that I shall not be put to shame in any way, but that with all boldness, now as always, Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.
20. For to me life is Christ, and death is gain.
21. If I go on living in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. And I do not know which I shall choose.
22. I am caught between the two. I long to depart this life and be with Christ, (for) that is far better.
23. Yet that I remain (in) the flesh is more necessary for your benefit.
24. And this I know with confidence, that I shall remain and continue in the service of all of you for your progress and joy in the faith,
25. so that your boasting in Christ Jesus may abound on account of me when I come to you again.
26. Only, conduct yourselves in a way worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that, whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear news of you, that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind struggling together for the faith of the gospel,
27. not intimidated in any way by your opponents. This is proof to them of destruction, but of your salvation. And this is God's doing.
28. For to you has been granted, for the sake of Christ, not only to believe in him but also to suffer for him.
29. Yours is the same struggle as you saw in me and now hear about me.
