Isaiah 63:1-19
1. Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson? Who is this, robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of his strength? "It is I, speaking in righteousness, mighty to save."
2. Why are your garments red, like those of one treading the winepress?
3. "I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with me. I trampled them in my anger and trod them down in my wrath; their blood spattered my garments, and I stained all my clothing.
4. For the day of vengeance was in my heart, and the year of my redemption has come.
5. I looked, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that no one gave support; so my own arm worked salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me.
6. I trampled the nations in my anger; in my wrath I made them drunk and poured their blood on the ground."
7. I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the LORD has done for us- yes, the many good things he has done for the house of Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses.
8. He said, "Surely they are my people, sons who will not be false to me"; and so he became their Savior.
9. In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of his presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
10. Yet they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit. So he turned and became their enemy and he himself fought against them.
11. Then his people recalled the days of old, the days of Moses and his people- where is he who brought them through the sea, with the shepherd of his flock? Where is he who set his Holy Spirit among them,
12. who sent his glorious arm of power to be at Moses' right hand, who divided the waters before them, to gain for himself everlasting renown,
13. who led them through the depths? Like a horse in open country, they did not stumble;
14. like cattle that go down to the plain, they were given rest by the Spirit of the LORD. This is how you guided your people to make for yourself a glorious name.
15. Look down from heaven and see from your lofty throne, holy and glorious. Where are your zeal and your might? Your tenderness and compassion are withheld from us.
16. But you are our Father, though Abraham does not know us or Israel acknowledge us; you, O LORD, are our Father, our Redeemer from of old is your name.
17. Why, O LORD, do you make us wander from your ways and harden our hearts so we do not revere you? Return for the sake of your servants, the tribes that are your inheritance.
18. For a little while your people possessed your holy place, but now our enemies have trampled down your sanctuary.
19. We are yours from of old; but you have not ruled over them, they have not been called by your name.

Isaiah 64:1-12
1. Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before you!
2. As when fire sets twigs ablaze and causes water to boil, come down to make your name known to your enemies and cause the nations to quake before you!
3. For when you did awesome things that we did not expect, you came down, and the mountains trembled before you.
4. Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.
5. You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways. But when we continued to sin against them, you were angry. How then can we be saved?
6. All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.
7. No one calls on your name or strives to lay hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us and made us waste away because of our sins.
8. Yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.
9. Do not be angry beyond measure, O LORD; do not remember our sins forever. Oh, look upon us, we pray, for we are all your people.
10. Your sacred cities have become a desert; even Zion is a desert, Jerusalem a desolation.
11. Our holy and glorious temple, where our fathers praised you, has been burned with fire, and all that we treasured lies in ruins.
12. After all this, O LORD, will you hold yourself back? Will you keep silent and punish us beyond measure?

Psalms 115:14-18
14. May the LORD make you increase, both you and your children.
15. May you be blessed by the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
16. The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to man.
17. It is not the dead who praise the LORD, those who go down to silence;
18. it is we who extol the LORD, both now and forevermore. Praise the LORD.

Proverbs 26:27-27
27. If a man digs a pit, he will fall into it; if a man rolls a stone, it will roll back on him.

Philippians 1:1-30
1. Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons:
2. Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3. I thank my God every time I remember you.
4. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy
5. because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,
6. being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
7. It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart; for whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God's grace with me.
8. God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
9. And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,
10. so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ,
11. filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ--to the glory and praise of God.
12. Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel.
13. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ.
14. Because of my chains, most of the brothers in the Lord have been encouraged to speak the word of God more courageously and fearlessly.
15. It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill.
16. The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel.
17. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains.
18. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.
19. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, for I know that through your prayers and the help given by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance.
20. I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.
21. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
22. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know!
23. I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;
24. but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.
25. Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith,
26. so that through my being with you again your joy in Christ Jesus will overflow on account of me.
27. Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel
28. without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved--and that by God.
29. For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him,
30. since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.
