Isaiah 3:1-26
1. See now, the Lord, the LORD Almighty, is about to take from Jerusalem and Judah both supply and support: all supplies of food and all supplies of water,
2. the hero and warrior, the judge and prophet, the soothsayer and elder,
3. the captain of fifty and man of rank, the counselor, skilled craftsman and clever enchanter.
4. I will make boys their officials; mere children will govern them.
5. People will oppress each other- man against man, neighbor against neighbor. The young will rise up against the old, the base against the honorable.
6. A man will seize one of his brothers at his father's home, and say, "You have a cloak, you be our leader; take charge of this heap of ruins!"
7. But in that day he will cry out, "I have no remedy. I have no food or clothing in my house; do not make me the leader of the people."
8. Jerusalem staggers, Judah is falling; their words and deeds are against the LORD, defying his glorious presence.
9. The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.
10. Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.
11. Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them! They will be paid back for what their hands have done.
12. Youths oppress my people, women rule over them. O my people, your guides lead you astray; they turn you from the path.
13. The LORD takes his place in court; he rises to judge the people.
14. The LORD enters into judgment against the elders and leaders of his people: "It is you who have ruined my vineyard; the plunder from the poor is in your houses.
15. What do you mean by crushing my people and grinding the faces of the poor?" declares the Lord, the LORD Almighty.
16. The LORD says, "The women of Zion are haughty, walking along with outstretched necks, flirting with their eyes, tripping along with mincing steps, with ornaments jingling on their ankles.
17. Therefore the Lord will bring sores on the heads of the women of Zion; the LORD will make their scalps bald."
18. In that day the Lord will snatch away their finery: the bangles and headbands and crescent necklaces,
19. the earrings and bracelets and veils,
20. the headdresses and ankle chains and sashes, the perfume bottles and charms,
21. the signet rings and nose rings,
22. the fine robes and the capes and cloaks, the purses
23. and mirrors, and the linen garments and tiaras and shawls.
24. Instead of fragrance there will be a stench; instead of a sash, a rope; instead of well-dressed hair, baldness; instead of fine clothing, sackcloth; instead of beauty, branding.
25. Your men will fall by the sword, your warriors in battle.
26. The gates of Zion will lament and mourn; destitute, she will sit on the ground.

Isaiah 4:1-6
1. In that day seven women will take hold of one man and say, "We will eat our own food and provide our own clothes; only let us be called by your name. Take away our disgrace!"
2. In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of the survivors in Israel.
3. Those who are left in Zion, who remain in Jerusalem, will be called holy, all who are recorded among the living in Jerusalem.
4. The Lord will wash away the filth of the women of Zion; he will cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of fire.
5. Then the LORD will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over all the glory will be a canopy.
6. It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain.

Psalms 105:7-22
7. He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
8. He remembers his covenant forever, the word he commanded, for a thousand generations,
9. the covenant he made with Abraham, the oath he swore to Isaac.
10. He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree, to Israel as an everlasting covenant:
11. "To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion you will inherit."
12. When they were but few in number, few indeed, and strangers in it,
13. they wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another.
14. He allowed no one to oppress them; for their sake he rebuked kings:
15. "Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm."
16. He called down famine on the land and destroyed all their supplies of food;
17. and he sent a man before them- Joseph, sold as a slave.
18. They bruised his feet with shackles, his neck was put in irons,
19. till what he foretold came to pass, till the word of the LORD proved him true.
20. The king sent and released him, the ruler of peoples set him free.
21. He made him master of his household, ruler over all he possessed,
22. to instruct his princes as he pleased and teach his elders wisdom.

Proverbs 24:26-27
26. An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.
27. Finish your outdoor work and get your fields ready; after that, build your house.

1 Corinthians 15:1-28
1. Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.
2. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
3. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
4. that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
5. and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.
6. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.
7. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles,
8. and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.
9. For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
10. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them--yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.
11. Whether, then, it was I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed.
12. But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13. If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.
14. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.
15. More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised.
16. For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.
17. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.
18. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.
19. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.
20. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
21. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.
22. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
23. But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.
24. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power.
25. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
26. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
27. For he "has put everything under his feet." Now when it says that "everything" has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ.
28. When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.
