Isaiah 63:1-19
1. "Who is this that comes from Edom, from Bozrah in garments stained crimson? Who is this so splendidly robed, marching in his great might?" "It is I, announcing vindication, mighty to save."
2. "Why are your robes red, and your garments like theirs who tread the wine press?"
3. "I have trodden the wine press alone, and from the peoples no one was with me; I trod them in my anger and trampled them in my wrath; their juice spattered on my garments, and stained all my robes.
4. For the day of vengeance was in my heart, and the year for my redeeming work had come.
5. I looked, but there was no helper; I stared, but there was no one to sustain me; so my own arm brought me victory, and my wrath sustained me.
6. I trampled down peoples in my anger, I crushed them in my wrath, and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth."
7. I will recount the gracious deeds of the LORD, the praiseworthy acts of the LORD, because of all that the LORD has done for us, and the great favor to the house of Israel that he has shown them according to his mercy, according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
8. For he said, "Surely they are my people, children who will not deal falsely"; and he became their savior
9. in all their distress. It was no messenger or angel but his presence that saved them; in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
10. But they rebelled and grieved his holy spirit; therefore he became their enemy; he himself fought against them.
11. Then they remembered the days of old, of Moses his servant. Where is the one who brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of his flock? Where is the one who put within them his holy spirit,
12. who caused his glorious arm to march at the right hand of Moses, who divided the waters before them to make for himself an everlasting name,
13. who led them through the depths? Like a horse in the desert, they did not stumble.
14. Like cattle that go down into the valley, the spirit of the LORD gave them rest. Thus you led your people, to make for yourself a glorious name.
15. Look down from heaven and see, from your holy and glorious habitation. Where are your zeal and your might? The yearning of your heart and your compassion? They are withheld from me.
16. For you are our father, though Abraham does not know us and Israel does not acknowledge us; you, O LORD, are our father; our Redeemer from of old is your name.
17. Why, O LORD, do you make us stray from your ways and harden our heart, so that we do not fear you? Turn back for the sake of your servants, for the sake of the tribes that are your heritage.
18. Your holy people took possession for a little while; but now our adversaries have trampled down your sanctuary.
19. We have long been like those whom you do not rule, like those not called by your name.

Isaiah 64:1-12
1. O that you would tear open the heavens and come down, so that the mountains would quake at your presence--
2. as when fire kindles brushwood and the fire causes water to boil-- to make your name known to your adversaries, so that the nations might tremble at your presence!
3. When you did awesome deeds that we did not expect, you came down, the mountains quaked at your presence.
4. From ages past no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who works for those who wait for him.
5. You meet those who gladly do right, those who remember you in your ways. But you were angry, and we sinned; because you hid yourself we transgressed.
6. We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a filthy cloth. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
7. There is no one who calls on your name, or attempts to take hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us, and have delivered us into the hand of our iniquity.
8. Yet, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.
9. Do not be exceedingly angry, O LORD, and do not remember iniquity forever. Now consider, we are all your people.
10. Your holy cities have become a wilderness, Zion has become a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.
11. Our holy and beautiful house, where our ancestors praised you, has been burned by fire, and all our pleasant places have become ruins.
12. After all this, will you restrain yourself, O LORD? Will you keep silent, and punish us so severely?

Psalms 115:14-18
14. May the LORD give you increase, both you and your children.
15. May you be blessed by the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
16. The heavens are the LORD's heavens, but the earth he has given to human beings.
17. The dead do not praise the LORD, nor do any that go down into silence.
18. But we will bless the LORD from this time on and forevermore. Praise the LORD!

Proverbs 26:27-27
27. Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and a stone will come back on the one who starts it rolling.

Philippians 1:1-30
1. Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:
2. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3. I thank my God every time I remember you,
4. constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you,
5. because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now.
6. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.
7. It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because you hold me in your heart, for all of you share in God's grace with me, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.
8. For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the compassion of Christ Jesus.
9. And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight
10. to help you to determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless,
11. having produced the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.
12. I want you to know, beloved, that what has happened to me has actually helped to spread the gospel,
13. so that it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard and to everyone else that my imprisonment is for Christ;
14. and most of the brothers and sisters, having been made confident in the Lord by my imprisonment, dare to speak the word with greater boldness and without fear.
15. Some proclaim Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from goodwill.
16. These proclaim Christ out of love, knowing that I have been put here for the defense of the gospel;
17. the others proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but intending to increase my suffering in my imprisonment.
18. What does it matter? Just this, that Christ is proclaimed in every way, whether out of false motives or true; and in that I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice,
19. for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance.
20. It is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be put to shame in any way, but that by my speaking with all boldness, Christ will be exalted now as always in my body, whether by life or by death.
21. For to me, living is Christ and dying is gain.
22. If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which I prefer.
23. I am hard pressed between the two: my desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better;
24. but to remain in the flesh is more necessary for you.
25. Since I am convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with all of you for your progress and joy in faith,
26. so that I may share abundantly in your boasting in Christ Jesus when I come to you again.
27. Only, live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that, whether I come and see you or am absent and hear about you, I will know that you are standing firm in one spirit, striving side by side with one mind for the faith of the gospel,
28. and are in no way intimidated by your opponents. For them this is evidence of their destruction, but of your salvation. And this is God's doing.
29. For he has graciously granted you the privilege not only of believing in Christ, but of suffering for him as well--
30. since you are having the same struggle that you saw I had and now hear that I still have.
