Isaiah 11:1-16
1. But a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom.
2. The spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him: a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, A spirit of counsel and of strength, a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD,
3. and his delight shall be the fear of the LORD. Not by appearance shall he judge, nor by hearsay shall he decide,
4. But he shall judge the poor with justice, and decide aright for the land's afflicted. He shall strike the ruthless with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.
5. Justice shall be the band around his waist, and faithfulness a belt upon his hips.
6. Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; The calf and the young lion shall browse together, with a little child to guide them.
7. The cow and the bear shall be neighbors, together their young shall rest; the lion shall eat hay like the ox.
8. The baby shall play by the cobra's den, and the child lay his hand on the adder's lair.
9. There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the LORD, as water covers the sea.
10. On that day, The root of Jesse, set up as a signal for the nations, The Gentiles shall seek out, for his dwelling shall be glorious.
11. On that day, The Lord shall again take it in hand to reclaim the remnant of his people that is left from Assyria and Egypt, Pathros, Ethiopia, and Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and the isles of the sea.
12. He shall raise a signal to the nations and gather the outcasts of Israel; The dispersed of Judah he shall assemble from the four corners of the earth.
13. The envy of Ephraim shall pass away, and the rivalry of Judah be removed; Ephraim shall not be jealous of Judah, and Judah shall not be hostile to Ephraim;
14. But they shall swoop down on the foothills of the Philistines to the west, together they shall plunder the Kedemites; Edom and Moab shall be their possessions, and the Ammonites their subjects.
15. The LORD shall dry up the tongue of the Sea of Egypt, and wave his hand over the Euphrates in his fierce anger And shatter it into seven streamlets, so that it can be crossed in sandals.
16. There shall be a highway for the remnant of his people that is left from Assyria, As there was for Israel when he came up from the land of Egypt.

Isaiah 12:1-6
1. On that day, you will say: I give you thanks, O LORD; though you have been angry with me, your anger has abated, and you have consoled me.
2. God indeed is my savior; I am confident and unafraid. My strength and my courage is the LORD, and he has been my savior.
3. With joy you will draw water at the fountain of salvation,
4. and say on that day: Give thanks to the LORD, acclaim his name; among the nations make known his deeds, proclaim how exalted is his name.
5. Sing praise to the LORD for his glorious achievement; let this be known throughout all the earth.
6. Shout with exultation, O city of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel!

Psalms 106:6-18
6. We have sinned like our ancestors; we have done wrong and are guilty.
7. Our ancestors in Egypt did not attend to your wonders. They did not remember your great love; they defied the Most High at the Red Sea.
8. Yet he saved them for his name's sake to make his power known.
9. He roared at the Red Sea and it dried up. He led them through the deep as through a desert.
10. He rescued them from hostile hands, freed them from the power of the enemy.
11. The waters covered their oppressors; not one of them survived.
12. Then they believed his words and sang songs of praise.
13. But they soon forgot all he had done; they had no patience for his plan.
14. In the desert they gave way to their cravings, tempted God in the wasteland.
15. So he gave them what they asked and sent among them a wasting disease.
16. In the camp they challenged Moses and Aaron, the holy one of the LORD.
17. The earth opened and swallowed Dathan, it closed on the followers of Abiram.
18. Against that company the fire blazed; flames consumed the wicked.

Proverbs 25:3-5
3. As the heavens in height, and the earth in depth, the heart of kings is unfathomable.
4. Remove the dross from silver, and it comes forth perfectly purified;
5. Remove the wicked from the presence of the king, and his throne is made firm through righteousness.

2 Corinthians 2:1-17
1. For I decided not to come to you again in painful circumstances.
2. For if I inflict pain upon you, then who is there to cheer me except the one pained by me?
3. And I wrote as I did so that when I came I might not be pained by those in whom I should have rejoiced, confident about all of you that my joy is that of all of you.
4. For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you with many tears, not that you might be pained but that you might know the abundant love I have for you.
5. If anyone has caused pain, he has caused it not to me, but in some measure (not to exaggerate) to all of you.
6. This punishment by the majority is enough for such a person,
7. so that on the contrary you should forgive and encourage him instead, or else the person may be overwhelmed by excessive pain.
8. Therefore, I urge you to reaffirm your love for him.
9. For this is why I wrote, to know your proven character, whether you were obedient in everything.
10. Whomever you forgive anything, so do I. For indeed what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, has been for you in the presence of Christ,
11. so that we might not be taken advantage of by Satan, for we are not unaware of his purposes.
12. When I went to Troas for the gospel of Christ, although a door was opened for me in the Lord,
13. I had no relief in my spirit because I did not find my brother Titus. So I took leave of them and went on to Macedonia.
14. But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ and manifests through us the odor of the knowledge of him in every place.
15. For we are the aroma of Christ for God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing,
16. to the latter an odor of death that leads to death, to the former an odor of life that leads to life. Who is qualified for this?
17. For we are not like the many who trade on the word of God; but as out of sincerity, indeed as from God and in the presence of God, we speak in Christ.
