2 Kings 15:1-38
1. In the twenty-seventh year of King Jeroboam of Israel King Azariah son of Amaziah of Judah began to reign.
2. He was sixteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.
3. He did what was right in the sight of the LORD, just as his father Amaziah had done.
4. Nevertheless the high places were not taken away; the people still sacrificed and made offerings on the high places.
5. The LORD struck the king, so that he was leprous to the day of his death, and lived in a separate house. Jotham the king's son was in charge of the palace, governing the people of the land.
6. Now the rest of the acts of Azariah, and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah?
7. Azariah slept with his ancestors; they buried him with his ancestors in the city of David; his son Jotham succeeded him.
8. In the thirty-eighth year of King Azariah of Judah, Zechariah son of Jeroboam reigned over Israel in Samaria six months.
9. He did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, as his ancestors had done. He did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he caused Israel to sin.
10. Shallum son of Jabesh conspired against him, and struck him down in public and killed him, and reigned in place of him.
11. Now the rest of the deeds of Zechariah are written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel.
12. This was the promise of the LORD that he gave to Jehu, "Your sons shall sit on the throne of Israel to the fourth generation." And so it happened.
13. Shallum son of Jabesh began to reign in the thirty-ninth year of King Uzziah of Judah; he reigned one month in Samaria.
14. Then Menahem son of Gadi came up from Tirzah and came to Samaria; he struck down Shallum son of Jabesh in Samaria and killed him; he reigned in place of him.
15. Now the rest of the deeds of Shallum, including the conspiracy that he made, are written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel.
16. At that time Menahem sacked Tiphsah, all who were in it and its territory from Tirzah on; because they did not open it to him, he sacked it. He ripped open all the pregnant women in it.
17. In the thirty-ninth year of King Azariah of Judah, Menahem son of Gadi began to reign over Israel; he reigned ten years in Samaria.
18. He did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not depart all his days from any of the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he caused Israel to sin.
19. King Pul of Assyria came against the land; Menahem gave Pul a thousand talents of silver, so that he might help him confirm his hold on the royal power.
20. Menahem exacted the money from Israel, that is, from all the wealthy, fifty shekels of silver from each one, to give to the king of Assyria. So the king of Assyria turned back, and did not stay there in the land.
21. Now the rest of the deeds of Menahem, and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel?
22. Menahem slept with his ancestors, and his son Pekahiah succeeded him.
23. In the fiftieth year of King Azariah of Judah, Pekahiah son of Menahem began to reign over Israel in Samaria; he reigned two years.
24. He did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not turn away from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he caused Israel to sin.
25. Pekah son of Remaliah, his captain, conspired against him with fifty of the Gileadites, and attacked him in Samaria, in the citadel of the palace along with Argob and Arieh; he killed him, and reigned in place of him.
26. Now the rest of the deeds of Pekahiah, and all that he did, are written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel.
27. In the fifty-second year of King Azariah of Judah, Pekah son of Remaliah began to reign over Israel in Samaria; he reigned twenty years.
28. He did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he caused Israel to sin.
29. In the days of King Pekah of Israel, King Tiglath-pileser of Assyria came and captured Ijon, Abel-beth-maacah, Janoah, Kedesh, Hazor, Gilead, and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali; and he carried the people captive to Assyria.
30. Then Hoshea son of Elah made a conspiracy against Pekah son of Remaliah, attacked him, and killed him; he reigned in place of him, in the twentieth year of Jotham son of Uzziah.
31. Now the rest of the acts of Pekah, and all that he did, are written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel.
32. In the second year of King Pekah son of Remaliah of Israel, King Jotham son of Uzziah of Judah began to reign.
33. He was twenty-five years old when he began to reign and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jerusha daughter of Zadok.
34. He did what was right in the sight of the LORD, just as his father Uzziah had done.
35. Nevertheless the high places were not removed; the people still sacrificed and made offerings on the high places. He built the upper gate of the house of the LORD.
36. Now the rest of the acts of Jotham, and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah?
37. In those days the LORD began to send King Rezin of Aram and Pekah son of Remaliah against Judah.
38. Jotham slept with his ancestors, and was buried with his ancestors in the city of David, his ancestor; his son Ahaz succeeded him.

2 Kings 16:1-20
1. In the seventeenth year of Pekah son of Remaliah, King Ahaz son of Jotham of Judah began to reign.
2. Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign; he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. He did not do what was right in the sight of the LORD his God, as his ancestor David had done,
3. but he walked in the way of the kings of Israel. He even made his son pass through fire, according to the abominable practices of the nations whom the LORD drove out before the people of Israel.
4. He sacrificed and made offerings on the high places, on the hills, and under every green tree.
5. Then King Rezin of Aram and King Pekah son of Remaliah of Israel came up to wage war on Jerusalem; they besieged Ahaz but could not conquer him.
6. At that time the king of Edom recovered Elath for Edom, and drove the Judeans from Elath; and the Edomites came to Elath, where they live to this day.
7. Ahaz sent messengers to King Tiglath-pileser of Assyria, saying, "I am your servant and your son. Come up, and rescue me from the hand of the king of Aram and from the hand of the king of Israel, who are attacking me."
8. Ahaz also took the silver and gold found in the house of the LORD and in the treasures of the king's house, and sent a present to the king of Assyria.
9. The king of Assyria listened to him; the king of Assyria marched up against Damascus, and took it, carrying its people captive to Kir; then he killed Rezin.
10. When King Ahaz went to Damascus to meet King Tiglath-pileser of Assyria, he saw the altar that was at Damascus. King Ahaz sent to the priest Uriah a model of the altar, and its pattern, exact in all its details.
11. The priest Uriah built the altar; in accordance with all that King Ahaz had sent from Damascus, just so did the priest Uriah build it, before King Ahaz arrived from Damascus.
12. When the king came from Damascus, the king viewed the altar. Then the king drew near to the altar, went up on it,
13. and offered his burnt offering and his grain offering, poured his drink offering, and dashed the blood of his offerings of well-being against the altar.
14. The bronze altar that was before the LORD he removed from the front of the house, from the place between his altar and the house of the LORD, and put it on the north side of his altar.
15. King Ahaz commanded the priest Uriah, saying, "Upon the great altar offer the morning burnt offering, and the evening grain offering, and the king's burnt offering, and his grain offering, with the burnt offering of all the people of the land, their grain offering, and their drink offering; then dash against it all the blood of the burnt offering, and all the blood of the sacrifice; but the bronze altar shall be for me to inquire by."
16. The priest Uriah did everything that King Ahaz commanded.
17. Then King Ahaz cut off the frames of the stands, and removed the laver from them; he removed the sea from the bronze oxen that were under it, and put it on a pediment of stone.
18. The covered portal for use on the sabbath that had been built inside the palace, and the outer entrance for the king he removed from the house of the LORD. He did this because of the king of Assyria.
19. Now the rest of the acts of Ahaz that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah?
20. Ahaz slept with his ancestors, and was buried with his ancestors in the city of David; his son Hezekiah succeeded him.

Psalms 73:21-28
21. When my soul was embittered, when I was pricked in heart,
22. I was stupid and ignorant; I was like a brute beast toward you.
23. Nevertheless I am continually with you; you hold my right hand.
24. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me with honor.
25. Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire other than you.
26. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27. Indeed, those who are far from you will perish; you put an end to those who are false to you.
28. But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, to tell of all your works.

Proverbs 18:20-21
20. From the fruit of the mouth one's stomach is satisfied; the yield of the lips brings satisfaction.
21. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

John 21:1-25
1. After these things Jesus showed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias; and he showed himself in this way.
2. Gathered there together were Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples.
3. Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We will go with you." They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.
4. Just after daybreak, Jesus stood on the beach; but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.
5. Jesus said to them, "Children, you have no fish, have you?" They answered him, "No."
6. He said to them, "Cast the net to the right side of the boat, and you will find some." So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in because there were so many fish.
7. That disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on some clothes, for he was naked, and jumped into the sea.
8. But the other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not far from the land, only about a hundred yards off.
9. When they had gone ashore, they saw a charcoal fire there, with fish on it, and bread.
10. Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish that you have just caught."
11. So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, a hundred fifty-three of them; and though there were so many, the net was not torn.
12. Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." Now none of the disciples dared to ask him, "Who are you?" because they knew it was the Lord.
13. Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.
14. This was now the third time that Jesus appeared to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.
15. When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my lambs."
16. A second time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Tend my sheep."
17. He said to him the third time, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, "Do you love me?" And he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep.
18. Very truly, I tell you, when you were younger, you used to fasten your own belt and to go wherever you wished. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will fasten a belt around you and take you where you do not wish to go."
19. (He said this to indicate the kind of death by which he would glorify God.) After this he said to him, "Follow me."
20. Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; he was the one who had reclined next to Jesus at the supper and had said, "Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?"
21. When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, "Lord, what about him?"
22. Jesus said to him, "If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!"
23. So the rumor spread in the community that this disciple would not die. Yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but, "If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?"
24. This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and has written them, and we know that his testimony is true.
25. But there are also many other things that Jesus did; if every one of them were written down, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.
