Job 26:1-14
1. Then Job replied:
2. "How you have helped the powerless! How you have saved the arm that is feeble!
3. What advice you have offered to one without wisdom! And what great insight you have displayed!
4. Who has helped you utter these words? And whose spirit spoke from your mouth?
5. "The dead are in deep anguish, those beneath the waters and all that live in them.
6. Death is naked before God; Destruction lies uncovered.
7. He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing.
8. He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight.
9. He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it.
10. He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between light and darkness.
11. The pillars of the heavens quake, aghast at his rebuke.
12. By his power he churned up the sea; by his wisdom he cut Rahab to pieces.
13. By his breath the skies became fair; his hand pierced the gliding serpent.
14. And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?"

Psalms 96:11-13
11. Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
12. let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy;
13. they will sing before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth.

Proverbs 23:10-12
10. Do not move an ancient boundary stone or encroach on the fields of the fatherless,
11. for their Defender is strong; he will take up their case against you.
12. Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge.

Romans 15:25-33
25. Now, however, I am on my way to Jerusalem in the service of the saints there.
26. For Macedonia and Achaia were pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the saints in Jerusalem.
27. They were pleased to do it, and indeed they owe it to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in the Jews' spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings.
28. So after I have completed this task and have made sure that they have received this fruit, I will go to Spain and visit you on the way.
29. I know that when I come to you, I will come in the full measure of the blessing of Christ.
30. I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.
31. Pray that I may be rescued from the unbelievers in Judea and that my service in Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints there,
32. so that by God's will I may come to you with joy and together with you be refreshed.
33. The God of peace be with you all. Amen.
