Isaiah 1:1-31
1. The Visions of Isaiah son of Amoz, that he hath seen concerning Judah and Jerusalem, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, kings of Judah.
2. Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth, For Jehovah hath spoken: Sons I have nourished and brought up, And they -- they transgressed against Me.
3. An ox hath known its owner, And an ass the crib of its master, Israel hath not known, My people hath not understood.
4. Ah, sinning nation, a people heavy [with] iniquity, A seed of evil doers, sons -- corrupters! They have forsaken Jehovah, They have despised the Holy One of Israel, They have gone away backward.
5. Wherefore are ye stricken any more? Ye do add apostacy! Every head is become diseased, and every heart [is] sick.
6. From the sole of the foot -- unto the head, There is no soundness in it, Wound, and bruise, and fresh smiting! They have not been closed nor bound, Nor have they softened with ointment.
7. Your land [is] a desolation, your cities burnt with fire, Your ground, before you strangers are consuming it, And a desolation as overthrown by strangers!
8. And left hath been the daughter of Zion, As a booth in a vineyard, As a lodge in a place of cucumbers -- as a city besieged.
9. Unless Jehovah of Hosts had left to us a remnant, Shortly -- as Sodom we had been, To Gomorrah we had been like!
10. Hear the word of Jehovah, ye rulers of Sodom, Give ear to the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah,
11. `Why to Me the abundance of your sacrifices? saith Jehovah, I have been satiated [with] burnt-offerings of rams, And fat of fatlings; And blood of bullocks, and lambs, And he-goats I have not desired.
12. When ye come in to appear before Me, Who hath required this of your hand, To trample My courts?
13. Add not to bring in a vain present, Incense -- an abomination it [is] to Me, New moon, and sabbath, calling of convocation! Rendure not iniquity -- and a restraint!
14. Your new moons and your set seasons hath My soul hated, They have been upon me for a burden, I have been weary of bearing.
15. And in your spreading forth your hands, I hide mine eyes from you, Also when ye increase prayer, I do not hear, Your hands of blood have been full.
16. Wash ye, make ye pure, Turn aside the evil of your doings, from before Mine eyes, Cease to do evil, learn to do good.
17. Seek judgment, make happy the oppressed, Judge the fatherless, strive [for] the widow.
18. Come, I pray you, and we reason, saith Jehovah, If your sins are as scarlet, as snow they shall be white, If they are red as crimson, as wool they shall be!
19. If ye are willing, and have hearkened, The good of the land ye consume,
20. And if ye refuse, and have rebelled, [By] the sword ye are consumed, For the mouth of Jehovah hath spoken.
21. How hath a faithful city become a harlot? I have filled it [with] judgment, Righteousness lodgeth in it -- now murderers.
22. Thy silver hath become dross, Thy drink polluted with water.
23. Thy princes [are] apostates, and companions of thieves, Every one loving a bribe, and pursuing rewards, The fatherless they judge not, And the plea of the widow cometh not to them.
24. Therefore -- the affirmation of the Lord -- Jehovah of Hosts, the Mighty One of Israel: Ah, I am eased of Mine adversaries, And I am avenged of Mine enemies,
25. And I turn back My hand upon thee, And I refine as purity thy dross, And I turn aside all thy tin,
26. And I give back thy judges as at the first, And thy counsellors as in the beginning, After this thou art called, `A city of righteousness -- a faithful city.`
27. Zion in judgment is redeemed, And her captivity in righteousness.
28. And the destruction of transgressors and sinners [is] together, And those forsaking Jehovah are consumed.
29. For [men] are ashamed because of the oaks That ye have desired, And ye are confounded because of the gardens That ye have chosen.
30. For ye are as an oak whose leaf is fading, And as a garden that hath no water.
31. And the strong hath been for tow, And his work for a spark, And burned have both of them together, And there is none quenching!

Isaiah 2:1-22
1. The thing that Isaiah son of Amoz hath seen concerning Judah and Jerusalem:
2. And it hath come to pass, In the latter end of the days, Established is the mount of Jehovah`s house, Above the top of the mounts, And it hath been lifted up above the heights, And flowed unto it have all the nations.
3. And gone have many peoples and said, `Come, and we go up unto the mount of Jehovah, Unto the house of the God of Jacob, And He doth teach us of His ways, And we walk in His paths, For from Zion goeth forth a law, And a word of Jehovah from Jerusalem.
4. And He hath judged between the nations, And hath given a decision to many peoples, And they have beat their swords to ploughshares, And their spears to pruning-hooks, Nation doth not lift up sword unto nation, Nor do they learn any more -- war.
5. O house of Jacob, come, And we walk in the light of Jehovah.`
6. For Thou hast left Thy people, the house of Jacob. For they have been filled from the east, And [are] sorcerers like the Philistines, And with the children of strangers strike hands.
7. And its land is full of silver and gold, And there is no end to its treasures, And its land is full of horses, And there is no end to its chariots,
8. And its land is full of idols, To the work of its hands it boweth itself, To that which its fingers have made,
9. And the low boweth down, and the high is humbled, And Thou acceptest them not.
10. Enter into a rock, and be hidden in dust, Because of the fear of Jehovah, And because of the honour of His excellency.
11. The haughty eyes of man have been humbled, And bowed down hath been the loftiness of men, And set on high hath Jehovah alone been in that day.
12. For a day [is] to Jehovah of Hosts, For every proud and high one, And for every lifted up and low one,
13. And for all cedars of Lebanon, The high and the exalted ones, And for all oaks of Bashan,
14. And for all the high mountains, And for all the exalted heights,
15. And for every high tower, And for every fenced wall,
16. And for all ships of Tarshish, And for all desirable pictures.
17. And bowed down hath been the haughtiness of man, And humbled the loftiness of men, And set on high hath Jehovah alone been in that day.
18. And the idols -- they completely pass away.
19. And [men] have entered into caverns of rocks, And into caves of dust, Because of the fear of Jehovah, And because of the honour of His excellency, In His rising to terrify the earth.
20. In that day doth man cast his idols of silver, And his idols of gold, That they have made for him to worship, To moles, and to bats,
21. To enter into cavities of the rocks, And into clefts of the high places, Because of the fear of Jehovah, And because of the honour of His excellency, In His rising to terrify the earth.
22. Cease for you from man, Whose breath [is] in his nostrils, For -- in what is he esteemed?

Psalms 105:1-6
1. Give ye thanks to Jehovah -- call ye in His name, Make known among the peoples His acts.
2. Sing ye to Him -- sing praise to Him, Meditate ye on all His wonders.
3. Boast yourselves in His Holy Name, The heart of those seeking Jehovah rejoiceth.
4. Seek ye Jehovah and His strength, Seek ye His face continually.
5. Remember His wonders that He did, His signs and the judgments of His mouth.
6. O seed of Abraham, His servant, O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones.

Proverbs 24:23-25
23. These also are for the wise: -- To discern faces in judgment is not good.
24. Whoso is saying to the wicked, `Thou [art] righteous,` Peoples execrate him -- nations abhor him.
25. And to those reproving it is pleasant, And on them cometh a good blessing.

1 Corinthians 14:21-40
21. in the law it hath been written, that, `With other tongues and with other lips I will speak to this people, and not even so will they hear Me, saith the Lord;`
22. so that the tongues are for a sign, not to the believing, but to the unbelieving; and the prophesy [is] not for the unbelieving, but for the believing,
23. If, therefore, the whole assembly may come together, to the same place, and all may speak with tongues, and there may come in unlearned or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?
24. and if all may prophecy, and any one may come in, an unbeliever or unlearned, he is convicted by all, he is discerned by all,
25. and so the secrets of his heart become manifest, and so having fallen upon [his] face, he will bow before God, declaring that God really is among you.
26. What then is it, brethren? whenever ye may come together, each of you hath a psalm, hath a teaching, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation? let all things be for building up;
27. if an [unknown] tongue any one do speak, by two, or at the most, by three, and in turn, and let one interpret;
28. and if there may be no interpreter, let him be silent in an assembly, and to himself let him speak, and to God.
29. And prophets -- let two or three speak, and let the others discern,
30. and if to another sitting [anything] may be revealed, let the first be silent;
31. for ye are able, one by one, all to prophesy, that all may learn, and all may be exhorted,
32. and the spiritual gift of prophets to prophets are subject,
33. for God is not [a God] of tumult, but of peace, as in all the assemblies of the saints.
34. Your women in the assemblies let them be silent, for it hath not been permitted to them to speak, but to be subject, as also the law saith;
35. and if they wish to learn anything, at home their own husbands let them question, for it is a shame to women to speak in an assembly.
36. From you did the word of God come forth? or to you alone did it come?
37. if any one doth think to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge the things that I write to you -- that of the Lord they are commands;
38. and if any one is ignorant -- let him be ignorant;
39. so that, brethren, earnestly desire to prophesy, and to speak with tongues do not forbid;
40. let all things be done decently and in order.
