Jeremiah 37:1-21
1. Zedekiah the son of Josiah, which was made king thorow Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon, reigned in the land of Juda, in the stead of Cononiah the son of Jehoakim.
2. But neither he, nor his servants, nor the people in the land would obey the words of the LORD, which he spake by the Prophet Jeremy.
3. Nevertheless Zedekiah the king sent Jehucal the son of Selamiah and Sophoniah the son of Maasiah the Priest to the Prophet Jeremy, saying: O pray thou unto the LORD our God for us.
4. Now Jeremy walked free among the people at that time, and was not put in prison as yet.
5. Pharaoh's host also was come out of Egypt: which when the Caldees that besieged Jerusalem perceived, they departed from thence.
6. Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremy the Prophet, saying:
7. Thus sayeth the LORD God of Israel; This answer shall ye give to the king of Judah, that sent you unto me for counsel: Behold, Pharaoh's host which is come forth to help you, shall return to Egypt in to his own land:
8. but the Caldees shall come again, and fight against this city, win it, and set fire upon it.
9. For thus sayeth the LORD: Deceive not your own minds, thinking on this manner: Tush, the Caldees go now their way from us: No, they shall not go their way.
10. For though ye had slain the whole host of the Caldees, that besiege you, and every one of the slain lay in his tent, yet should they stand up, and set fire upon this city.
11. Now when the Host of the Caldees was broken up from Jerusalem for fear of the Egyptian's army,
12. Jeremy went out of Jerusalem toward the land of Ben Jamin, to do certain business there among the people.
13. And when he came under Ben Jamin's port, there was a porter, called Jeriah, the son of Selemiah, the son of Hananiah, which fell upon him, and took him, saying: Thy mind is to run to the Caldees.
14. Then said Jeremy: It is not so, I go not to the Caldees. Nevertheless Jeriah would not believe him, but brought Jeremy bound before the princes.
15. Wherefore the princes were angry with Jeremy, causing him to be beaten, and to be laid in prison in the house of Jonathas the scribe. For he was the ruler of the prison.
16. Thus was Jeremy put into the dungeon and prison, and so lay there a long time.
17. Then Zedekiah the king sent for him and called him, and asked him quietly in his own house, saying: thinkest thou this business (that now is in hand) cometh of the LORD? Jeremy answered: yea that it doth: and thou (said he) shalt be delivered in to the king of Babylon's power.
18. Moreover, Jeremy said unto king Zedekiah: What have I offended against thee, against thy servants or against this people, that ye have caused me to be put in prison?
19. Where are your prophets which have prophesied unto you, and said, that the king of Babylon should not come against you and this land?
20. And therefore hear now, O my lord the king: let my prayer be accepted before thee, and send me no more into the house of Jonathas the Scribe, that I die not there.
21. Then Zedekiah the king commanded to put Jeremy in the fore entry of the prison, and daily to be given him a cake of bread, and else no dight meat, until all the bread in the city was eaten up. Thus Jeremy remained in the fore entry of the prison.

Jeremiah 38:1-28
1. Saphatiah the son of Mathan, Godoliah the son of Phashur, and Jucal the son of Selemiah, and Phashur the son of Melchiah, perceived the words, that Jeremy had spoken unto all the people, namely on this manner:
2. Thus sayeth the LORD: Who so remaineth in this city, shall perish, either with the sword, with hunger or with pestilence: But who so falleth unto the Caldees, shall escape, winning his soul for a pray, and shall live.
3. For thus sayeth the LORD. This city (no doubt) must be delivered into the power of the king of Babylon, and he also shall win it.
4. Then said the princes unto the king: Sir, we beseech you let this man be put to death; For thus he discourageth the hands of the soldiers that be in this city, and the hands of all the people, when he speaketh such words unto them. This man verily laboureth not for peace of the people, but mischief.
5. Zedekiah the king answered and said: Lo, he is in your hands, for the king may deny you nothing.
6. Then took they Jeremy, and cast him into the dungeon of Melchiah the son of Hamelech, that dwelt in the fore entry of the prison. And they let down Jeremy with cords into a dungeon, where there was no water, but mire.
7. So Jeremy stack fast in the mire. Now when Abedmelech the Morian being a chamberlain in the king's court, understood, that they had cast Jeremy in to the dungeon:
8. he went out of the king's house, and spake to the king, (which then sat under the port of Ben Jamin) these words:
9. My lord the king, where as these men meddle with Jeremy the prophet, they do him wrong: Namely, in that they have put him in prison, there to die of hunger for there is no more bread in the city.
10. Then the king commanded Abedmelech the Morian and said: Take from hence thirty men whom thou wilt, and draw up Jeremy the prophet out of the dungeon, before he die.
11. So Abedmelech took the men with him, and went to the house of Amalech, and there under an almery he gat old rags and worn clothes, and let them down by a cord, into the dungeon to Jeremy.
12. And Abedmelech the Morian said unto the prophet Jeremy: O put these rags and clothes under thine arm holes, betwixt them and the cords: And Jeremy did so.
13. So they drew up Jeremy with cords and took him out of the dungeon, and he remained in the fore entry of the prison.
14. Then Zedekiah the king sent and caused Jeremy the prophet be called unto him, into the third entry, that was by the house of the LORD. And the king said unto Jeremy: I will ask thee somewhat but hide nothing from me.
15. Then Jeremy answered Zedekiah: If I be plain unto thee, thou wilt cause me suffer death: If I give thee counsel, thou wilt not follow me.
16. So the king swore an oath secretly unto Jeremy, saying: As truly as the LORD liveth, that made us these souls, I will not slay thee, nor give thee in to the hands of them that seek after thy life.
17. Then said Jeremy unto Zedekiah: Thus sayeth the LORD of Hosts the God of Israel: If cause be, that thou wilt go forth unto the king of Babylon's princes, thou shalt save thy life, and this city shall not be brent, yea both thou and thy household shall escape with your lives.
18. But if thou wilt not go forth to the king of Babylon's princes, then shall this city be delivered into the hands of the Caldees which shall set fire upon it, and thou shalt not be able to escape them.
19. And Zedekiah said unto Jeremy: I am afraid for the Jews, that are fled unto the Caldees, lest I come in their hands, and so they to have me in derision.
20. But Jeremy answered: No, they shall not betray thee: O hearken unto the voice of the LORD (I beseech thee) which I speak unto thee, so shalt thou be well, and save thy life.
21. But if thou wilt not go forth, the LORD hath told me this plainly:
22. Behold, all the women that are left in the king of Judah's house, shall go out to the king of Babylon's princes. For they think, that thou art deceived: and that the men in whom thou didst put thy trust, have gotten thee under, and set thy feet fast in the mire, and gone their way from thee.
23. Therefore all thy wives with their children shall flee unto the Caldees, and thou shalt not escape their hands, but shalt be the king of Babylon's prisoner, and this city shall be brent.
24. Then said Zedekiah unto Jeremy: Look that no body know of these words, and thou shalt not die.
25. But if the princes perceive, that I have talked with thee, and come unto thee, saying: O speak, what said the king to thee? hide it not from us, and we will not put thee to death. Tell us (we pray thee) what said the king to thee?
26. See thou give them this answer: I have humbly besought the king, that he will let me lie no more in Jehonathan's house, that I die not there.
27. Then came all the princes unto Jeremy, and asked him. And he told them, after the manner as the king bade him. Then they held their peace, for they perceived nothing.
28. So Jeremy abode still in the fore entry of the prison, until the day that Jerusalem was won.

Psalms 119:73-80
73. Yod. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me, O give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
74. They that fear thee, will be glad when they see me, because I put my trust in thy word.
75. I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou of very faithfulness hast caused me to be troubled.
76. O let thy merciful kindness be my comfort, according to the promise that thou hast made unto thy servant.
77. O let thy loving mercies come unto me, that I may live, for thy law is my delight.
78. Let the proud be confounded, which handle me so falsely.(so falsely against me)
79. But let such as fear thee, and know thy testimonies, be turned unto me.
80. O let my heart be undefiled in thy statutes that I be not ashamed.

Proverbs 27:23-27
23. See that thou know the number of thy cattle thy self, and look well to thy flocks.
24. For riches abide not away, and the crown endureth not for ever.
25. The hay groweth, the grass cometh up, and herbs are gathered in the mountains.
26. The lambs shall clothe thee, and for the goats thou shalt have money to thy husbandry.
27. Thou shalt have goats' milk enough to feed thee, to uphold thy household, and to sustain thy maidens.

1 Timothy 5:1-25
1. Rebuke not a senior:(an elder:) but exhort him as a father, and the younger men as brethren,
2. the elder women as mothers, the younger as sisters, with all pureness.
3. Honour widows which are true widows.
4. If any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to rule their own houses godly, and to recompense their elders. For that is good and acceptable before God.
5. She that is a very widow, and friendless,(desolate) putteth her trust in God, and continueth in supplication and prayer night and day:
6. but she that liveth in pleasure, is dead even yet alive.
7. And such(these) things command, that they may be without fault.(blame)
8. If there be any(any man) that provideth not for his own, and namely(specially) for them of his household, the same denieth(hath denied) the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
9. Let no widow be chosen under threescore(sixty) year old, and such a one as was the wife of one man,
10. and well reported of in good works: if she have nourished children,(brought up children well) if she have been liberal to strangers,(harberous) if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have ministered unto them which were in adversity, if she were continually given unto all manner (of) good works.
11. The younger widows refuse. For when they have begun to wax wanton, to the dishonour of(against) Christ, then will they marry,
12. having damnation, because they have despised(broken) their first faith.
13. And also they learn to go(run about) from house to house idle, yea not idle only, but also trifling and busybodies, speaking things which are not comely.
14. I will therefore that the younger women marry and bear children, and guide the house, and give none occasion to the adversary to speak evil.
15. For many of them are all ready turned back, and are gone after Satan.
16. And if any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them minister unto(make provision for) them, and let not the congregation be charged: that it(ye) may have sufficient(enough) for them that are widows in deed.
17. The seniors(elders) that rule well are worthy of double honour, most specially they which labour in the word and in teaching.
18. For the scripture saith: Thou shalt not muzzle(musell) the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. And the laborer is worthy of his reward.
19. Against an senior(elder) receive none accusation: but under two or three witnesses.
20. Them that sin rebuke openly(in the presence of all) that other (also) may fear.
21. I testify before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without hasty judgment, and do nothing partially.
22. Lay hands suddenly on no man neither be partaker of other men's sins: Keep thyself pure.
23. Drink no longer water, but use a little wine, for thy stomach's sake, and thine often diseases.(sickness)
24. Some men's sins are open beforehand and go before unto judgement: some men's sins follow after.(but some men's sins shall be manifest hereafter)
25. Likewise also good works are manifest beforehand, and they that are otherwise, cannot be hid.
