Ezekiel 9:1-11
1. Then he cried in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, "Draw near, you executioners of the city, each with his destroying weapon in his hand."
2. And six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his weapon for slaughter in his hand; among them was a man clothed in linen, with a writing case at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar.
3. Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub on which it rested to the threshold of the house. The LORD called to the man clothed in linen, who had the writing case at his side;
4. and said to him, "Go through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of those who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it."
5. To the others he said in my hearing, "Pass through the city after him, and kill; your eye shall not spare, and you shall show no pity.
6. Cut down old men, young men and young women, little children and women, but touch no one who has the mark. And begin at my sanctuary." So they began with the elders who were in front of the house.
7. Then he said to them, "Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain. Go!" So they went out and killed in the city.
8. While they were killing, and I was left alone, I fell prostrate on my face and cried out, "Ah Lord GOD! will you destroy all who remain of Israel as you pour out your wrath upon Jerusalem?"
9. He said to me, "The guilt of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great; the land is full of bloodshed and the city full of perversity; for they say, 'The LORD has forsaken the land, and the LORD does not see.'
10. As for me, my eye will not spare, nor will I have pity, but I will bring down their deeds upon their heads."
11. Then the man clothed in linen, with the writing case at his side, brought back word, saying, "I have done as you commanded me."

Ezekiel 10:1-22
1. Then I looked, and above the dome that was over the heads of the cherubim there appeared above them something like a sapphire, in form resembling a throne.
2. He said to the man clothed in linen, "Go within the wheelwork underneath the cherubim; fill your hands with burning coals from among the cherubim, and scatter them over the city." He went in as I looked on.
3. Now the cherubim were standing on the south side of the house when the man went in; and a cloud filled the inner court.
4. Then the glory of the LORD rose up from the cherub to the threshold of the house; the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the glory of the LORD.
5. The sound of the wings of the cherubim was heard as far as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when he speaks.
6. When he commanded the man clothed in linen, "Take fire from within the wheelwork, from among the cherubim," he went in and stood beside a wheel.
7. And a cherub stretched out his hand from among the cherubim to the fire that was among the cherubim, took some of it and put it into the hands of the man clothed in linen, who took it and went out.
8. The cherubim appeared to have the form of a human hand under their wings.
9. I looked, and there were four wheels beside the cherubim, one beside each cherub; and the appearance of the wheels was like gleaming beryl.
10. And as for their appearance, the four looked alike, something like a wheel within a wheel.
11. When they moved, they moved in any of the four directions without veering as they moved; but in whatever direction the front wheel faced, the others followed without veering as they moved.
12. Their entire body, their rims, their spokes, their wings, and the wheels-- the wheels of the four of them-- were full of eyes all around.
13. As for the wheels, they were called in my hearing "the wheelwork."
14. Each one had four faces: the first face was that of the cherub, the second face was that of a human being, the third that of a lion, and the fourth that of an eagle.
15. The cherubim rose up. These were the living creatures that I saw by the river Chebar.
16. When the cherubim moved, the wheels moved beside them; and when the cherubim lifted up their wings to rise up from the earth, the wheels at their side did not veer.
17. When they stopped, the others stopped, and when they rose up, the others rose up with them; for the spirit of the living creatures was in them.
18. Then the glory of the LORD went out from the threshold of the house and stopped above the cherubim.
19. The cherubim lifted up their wings and rose up from the earth in my sight as they went out with the wheels beside them. They stopped at the entrance of the east gate of the house of the LORD; and the glory of the God of Israel was above them.
20. These were the living creatures that I saw underneath the God of Israel by the river Chebar; and I knew that they were cherubim.
21. Each had four faces, each four wings, and underneath their wings something like human hands.
22. As for what their faces were like, they were the same faces whose appearance I had seen by the river Chebar. Each one moved straight ahead.

Psalms 121:1-8
1. I lift up my eyes to the hills-- from where will my help come?
2. My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
3. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.
4. He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5. The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade at your right hand.
6. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
7. The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.
8. The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore.

Proverbs 28:16-16
16. A ruler who lacks understanding is a cruel oppressor; but one who hates unjust gain will enjoy a long life.

Hebrews 5:1-14
1. Every high priest chosen from among mortals is put in charge of things pertaining to God on their behalf, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
2. He is able to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is subject to weakness;
3. and because of this he must offer sacrifice for his own sins as well as for those of the people.
4. And one does not presume to take this honor, but takes it only when called by God, just as Aaron was.
5. So also Christ did not glorify himself in becoming a high priest, but was appointed by the one who said to him, "You are my Son, today I have begotten you";
6. as he says also in another place, "You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek."
7. In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to the one who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.
8. Although he was a Son, he learned obedience through what he suffered;
9. and having been made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him,
10. having been designated by God a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.
11. About this we have much to say that is hard to explain, since you have become dull in understanding.
12. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic elements of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food;
13. for everyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is unskilled in the word of righteousness.
14. But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.
