Joshua 15:1-63
1. Land was given to the tribe of Judah, family group by family group. It reached down to the territory of Edom. It went as far south as the Desert of Zin.
2. Judah's border on the south started from the bay at the south end of the Dead Sea.
3. It went across to the south of Scorpion Pass. It continued on to Zin. It went over to the south of Kadesh Barnea. Then it ran past Hezron up to Addar. It curved around to Karka.
4. It then went along to Azmon. There it joined the Wadi of Egypt and ended at the Mediterranean Sea. That was the southern border of Judah.
5. The border on the east was the Dead Sea. It went north all the way to where the Jordan River enters the sea. The border on the north started at the bay of the Dead Sea. That's where the Jordan River enters the sea.
6. From there it went up to Beth Hoglah. It continued north of Beth Arabah to the Stone of Bohan, the son of Reuben.
7. Then it went from the Valley of Achor up to Debir. It turned north to Gilgal. Gilgal faces the Pass of Adummim south of the valley. The border continued along to the springs of En Shemesh. It came to an end at En Rogel.
8. Then it ran up the Valley of Ben Hinnom. It went along the south slope of Jerusalem. From there it climbed to the top of the hill that is west of the Hinnom Valley. The hill is also at the north end of the Valley of Rephaim.
9. From the top of the hill the border headed toward the springs of Nephtoah. It went to the towns near Mount Ephron. It went down toward Kiriath Jearim.
10. Then it curved west from Kiriath Jearim to Mount Seir. It ran along the north slope of Mount Kesalon. It continued down to Beth Shemesh and crossed over to Timnah.
11. It went to the north slope of Ekron. Then it turned toward Shikkeron. It passed along to Mount Baalah and reached Jabneel. The border came to an end at the Mediterranean Sea.
12. The border on the west was the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea. Those were the borders of the family groups of the tribe of Judah.
13. Joshua gave a part of Judah's share of land to Caleb, the son of Jephunneh. That was in keeping with the Lord's command to Joshua. The share Caleb received was the city of Hebron. It was also called Kiriath Arba. Anak came from the family line of Arba.
14. Caleb drove three Anakites out of Hebron. Their names were Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai. They were from the family line of Anak.
15. From Hebron, Caleb marched out against the people who were living in Debir. It used to be called Kiriath Sepher.
16. Caleb said, "I will give my daughter Acsah to be married. I'll give her to the man who attacks and captures Kiriath Sepher."
17. Othniel captured it. So Caleb gave his daughter Acsah to him to be his wife. Othniel was the son of Kenaz. He was Caleb's brother.
18. One day Acsah came to Othniel. She begged him to ask her father for a field. When she got off her donkey, Caleb spoke to her. He asked, "What can I do for you?"
19. She replied, "Do me a special favor. You have given me some land in the Negev Desert. Give me springs of water also." So Caleb gave her the upper and lower springs.

Psalms 45:1-5
1. For the director of music. A maskil of the Sons of Korah. A wedding song to the tune of "Lilies." My heart is full of beautiful words as I say my poem for the king. My tongue is like the pen of a skillful writer.
2. You are the most excellent of men. Your lips have been given the ability to speak gracious words. God has blessed you forever.
3. Mighty one, put your sword at your side. Put on glory and majesty as if they were your clothes.
4. In your majesty ride out with power in honor of what is true and right. Do it in honor of all those who are not proud. Let your right hand do wonderful things.
5. Shoot your sharp arrows into the hearts of your enemies. Let the nations come under your control.

Proverbs 14:4-5
4. Where there are no oxen, the feed box is empty. But a strong ox brings in a great harvest.
5. An honest witness does not lie. But a dishonest witness pours out lies.

Luke 11:29-54
29. As the crowds grew larger, Jesus spoke to them. "The people of today are evil," he said. "They ask for a miraculous sign from God. But none will be given except the sign of Jonah.
30. He was a sign from God to the people of Nineveh. In the same way, the Son of Man will be a sign from God to the people of today.
31. "The Queen of the South will stand up on judgment day with the men now living. And she will prove that they are guilty. She came from very far away to listen to Solomon's wisdom. And now one who is more important than Solomon is here.
32. "The men of Nineveh will stand up on judgment day with the people now living. And the Ninevites will prove that those people are guilty. The men of Nineveh turned away from their sins when Jonah preached to them. And now one who is more important than Jonah is here.
33. "No one lights a lamp and hides it. No one puts it under a bowl. Instead, people put a lamp on its stand. Then those who come in can see the light.
34. "Your eye is like a lamp for your body. Suppose your eyes are good. Then your whole body also is full of light. But suppose your eyes are bad. Then your body also is full of darkness.
35. So make sure that the light inside you is not darkness.
36. "Suppose your whole body is full of light. And suppose no part of it is dark. Then your body will be completely lit up. It will be as when the light of a lamp shines on you."
37. Jesus finished speaking. Then a Pharisee invited him to eat with him. So Jesus went in and took his place at the table.
38. But the Pharisee noticed that Jesus did not wash before the meal. He was surprised.
39. Then the Lord spoke to him. "You Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish," he said. "But inside you are full of greed and evil.
40. You foolish people! Didn't the one who made the outside make the inside also?
41. Give to poor people what is inside the dish. Then everything will be clean for you.
42. "How terrible it will be for you Pharisees! You give God a tenth of your garden plants, such as mint and rue. But you have forgotten to be fair and to love God. You should have practiced the last things without failing to do the first.
43. "How terrible for you Pharisees! You love the most important seats in the synagogues. You love having people greet you in the market places.
44. "How terrible for you! You are like graves that are not marked. People walk over them without knowing it."
45. An authority on the law spoke to Jesus. He said, "Teacher, when you say things like that, you say bad things about us too."
46. Jesus replied, "How terrible for you authorities on the law! You put such heavy loads on people that they can hardly carry them. But you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them.
47. "How terrible for you! You build tombs for the prophets. It was your people of long ago who killed them.
48. So you give witness that you agree with what your people did long ago. They killed the prophets, and now you build the prophets' tombs.
49. "So God in his wisdom said, 'I will send prophets and apostles to them. They will kill some. And they will try to hurt others.'
50. So the people of today will be punished. They will pay for all the prophets' blood spilled since the world began.
51. I mean from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who was killed between the altar and the temple. Yes, I tell you, the people of today will be punished for all these things.
52. "How terrible for you authorities on the law! You have taken away the key to the door of knowledge. You yourselves have not entered. And you have stood in the way of those who were entering."
53. When Jesus left there, the Pharisees and the teachers of the law strongly opposed him. They threw a lot of questions at him.
54. They set traps for him. They wanted to catch him in something he might say.
