Jeremiah 19:1-15
1. Thus said Jehovah, `Go, and thou hast got a potter`s earthen vessel, and of the elders of the people, and of the elders of the priests,
2. and thou hast gone forth unto the valley of the son of Hinnom, that [is] at the opening of the gate of the pottery, and hast proclaimed there the words that I speak unto thee,
3. and hast said, Hear a word of Jehovah, ye kings of Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem, Thus said Jehovah of Hosts, God of Israel: `Lo, I am bringing in evil on this place, at which the ears of every one who is hearing it do tingle,
4. because that they have forsaken Me, and make known this place, and make perfume in it to other gods, that they knew not, they and their fathers, and the kings of Judah, and they have filled this place [with] innocent blood,
5. and have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons with fire, burnt-offerings to Baal, that I commanded not, nor spake of, nor did it come up on My heart.
6. `Therefore, lo, days are coming -- an affirmation of Jehovah -- and this place is not called any more, Tophet, and Valley of the son of Hinnom, but, Valley of slaughter.
7. And I have made void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place, and have caused them to fall by the sword before their enemies, and by the hand of those seeking their life, and I have given their carcase for food to the fowl of the heavens, and to the beast of the earth,
8. and I have made this city for a desolation, and for a hissing, every passer by it is astonished, and doth hiss for all its plagues.
9. And I have caused them to eat the flesh of their sons, and the flesh of their daughters, and each the flesh of his friend they do eat, in the siege and in the straitness with which straiten them do their enemies, and those seeking their life.
10. `And thou hast broken the bottle before the eyes of the men who are going with thee,
11. and hast said unto them: Thus said Jehovah of Hosts, Thus do I break this people and this city, as one breaketh the potter`s vessel, that is not able to be repaired again, and in Tophet they bury -- without place to bury;
12. so I do to this place -- an affirmation of Jehovah -- and to its inhabitants, so as to make this city as Tophet;
13. and the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, have been -- as the place of Tophet -- defiled, even all the houses on whose roofs they have made perfume to all the host of the heavens, so as to pour out oblations to other gods.`
14. And Jeremiah cometh in from Tophet, whither Jehovah had sent him to prophesy, and he standeth in the court of the house of Jehovah, and he saith unto all the people:
15. `Thus said Jehovah of Hosts, God of Israel: Lo, I am bringing in unto this city, and on all its cities, all the evil that I have spoken against it, for they have hardened their neck -- not to hear My words!`

Jeremiah 20:1-18
1. And Pashhur son of Immer the priest -- who also [is] overseer, leader in the house of Jehovah -- heareth Jeremiah prophesying these things,
2. and Pashhur smiteth Jeremiah the prophet, and putteth him unto the stocks, that [are] by the high gate of Benjamin, that [is] by the house of Jehovah.
3. and it cometh to pass on the morrow, that Pashhur bringeth out Jeremiah from the stocks, and Jeremiah saith unto him, `Not Pashhur hath Jehovah called thy name, but -- Magor-Missabib.
4. For thus said Jehovah: Lo, I am making thee for a fear to thyself, And to all loving thee, And they have fallen by the sword of their enemies, and thine eyes are beholding, And all Judah I give into the hand of the king of Babylon, And he hath removed them to Babylon, And he hath smitten them with the sword.
5. And I have given all the strength of this city, And all its labour, and all its precious things, Yea, all the treasures of the kings of Judah I do give into the hand of their enemies, And they have spoiled them, and taken them, And have brought them into Babylon.
6. And thou, Pashhur, and all dwelling in thy house, Do go into captivity. and Babylon thou dost enter, And there thou diest, and there thou art buried, Thou and all loving thee, To whom thou hast prophesied falsely.`
7. Thou hast persuaded me, O Jehovah, and I am persuaded; Thou hast hardened me, and dost prevail, I have been for a laughter all the day, Every one is mocking at me,
8. Because from the time I speak I cry out, `Violence and destruction,` I cry, For the word of Jehovah hath been to me For reproach and for derision all the day.
9. And I said, `I do not mention Him, Nor do I speak any more in His name,` And it hath been in my heart As a burning fire shut up in my bones, And I have been weary of containing, And I am not able.
10. For I have heard the evil report of many, Fear [is] round about: `Declare, and we declare it,` All mine allies are watching [for] my halting, `Perhaps he is enticed, and we prevail over him, And we take our vengeance out of him.`
11. And Jehovah [is] with me, as a terrible mighty one, Therefore my persecutors stumble and prevail not, They have been exceedingly ashamed, For they have not acted wisely, Confusion age-during is not forgotten.
12. And, O Jehovah of Hosts, trier of the righteous, Beholder of reins and heart, I do see Thy vengeance out of them, For unto Thee I have revealed my cause.
13. Sing ye to Jehovah, praise Jehovah, For He hath delivered the soul of the needy From the hand of evil doers.
14. Cursed [is] the day in which I was born, The day that my mother bare me, Let it not be blessed!
15. Cursed [is] the man who bore tidings [to] my father, saying, `Born to thee hath been a child -- a male,` Making him very glad!
16. Then hath that man been as the cities, That Jehovah overthrew, and repented not, And he hath heard a cry at morning, And a shout at time of noon.
17. Because he hath not put me to death from the womb, And my mother is to me -- my grave, And her womb a pregnancy age-during.
18. Why [is] this? from the womb I have come out, To see labour and sorrow, Yea, consumed in shame are my days!

Psalms 119:1-8
1. [Aleph.] O the happiness of those perfect in the way, They are walking in the law of Jehovah,
2. O the happiness of those keeping His testimonies, With the whole heart they seek Him.
3. Yea, they have not done iniquity, In His ways they have walked.
4. Thou hast commanded us Thy precepts to keep diligently,
5. O that my ways were prepared to keep Thy statutes,
6. Then I am not ashamed In my looking unto all Thy commands.
7. I confess Thee with uprightness of heart, In my learning the judgments of Thy righteousness.
8. Thy statutes I keep, leave me not utterly!

Proverbs 27:13-13
13. Take his garment, when a stranger hath been surety, And for a strange woman pledge it.

1 Thessalonians 4:1-18
1. As to the rest, then, brethren, we request you, and call upon you in the Lord Jesus, as ye did receive from us how it behoveth you to walk and to please God, that ye may abound the more,
2. for ye have known what commands we gave you through the Lord Jesus,
3. for this is the will of God -- your sanctification; that ye abstain from the whoredom,
4. that each of you know his own vessel to possess in sanctification and honour,
5. not in the affection of desire, as also the nations that were not knowing God,
6. that no one go beyond and defraud in the matter his brother, because an avenger [is] the Lord of all these, as also we spake before to you and testified,
7. for God did not call us on uncleanness, but in sanctification;
8. he, therefore, who is despising -- doth not despise man, but God, who also did give His Holy Spirit to us.
9. And concerning the brotherly love, ye have no need of [my] writing to you, for ye yourselves are God-taught to love one another,
10. for ye do it also to all the brethren who [are] in all Macedonia; and we call upon you, brethren, to abound still more,
11. and to study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we did command you,
12. that ye may walk becomingly unto those without, and may have lack of nothing.
13. And I do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, that ye may not sorrow, as also the rest who have not hope,
14. for if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, so also God those asleep through Jesus he will bring with him,
15. for this to you we say in the word of the Lord, that we who are living -- who do remain over to the presence of the Lord -- may not precede those asleep,
16. because the Lord himself, in a shout, in the voice of a chief-messenger, and in the trump of God, shall come down from heaven, and the dead in Christ shall rise first,
17. then we who are living, who are remaining over, together with them shall be caught away in clouds to meet the Lord in air, and so always with the Lord we shall be;
18. so, then, comfort ye one another in these words.
