    Jeremiah 17

    1 "The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron; With the point of a diamond it is engraved On the tablet of their heart, And on the horns of your altars,
    2 While their children remember Their altars and their wooden images By the green trees on the high hills.
    3 O My mountain in the field, I will give as plunder your wealth, all your treasures, And your high places of sin within all your borders.
    4 And you, even yourself, Shall let go of your heritage which I gave you; And I will cause you to serve your enemies In the land which you do not know; For you have kindled a fire in My anger which shall burn forever."
    5 Thus says the LORD: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD.
    6 For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, And shall not see when good comes, But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, In a salt land which is not inhabited.
    7 "Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD.
    8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
    9 "The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?
    10 I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.
    11 "As a partridge that broods but does not hatch, So is he who gets riches, but not by right; It will leave him in the midst of his days, And at his end he will be a fool."
    12 A glorious high throne from the beginning Is the place of our sanctuary.
    13 O LORD, the hope of Israel, All who forsake You shall be ashamed. "Those who depart from Me Shall be written in the earth, Because they have forsaken the LORD, The fountain of living waters."
    14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise.
    15 Indeed they say to me, "Where is the word of the LORD? Let it come now!"
    16 As for me, I have not hurried away from being a shepherd who follows You, Nor have I desired the woeful day; You know what came out of my lips; It was right there before You.
    17 Do not be a terror to me; You are my hope in the day of doom.
    18 Let them be ashamed who persecute me, But do not let me be put to shame; Let them be dismayed, But do not let me be dismayed. Bring on them the day of doom, And destroy them with double destruction!
    19 Thus the LORD said to me: "Go and stand in the gate of the children of the people, by which the kings of Judah come in and by which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem;
    20 and say to them, "Hear the word of the LORD, you kings of Judah, and all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, who enter by these gates.
    21 Thus says the LORD: "Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the Sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem;
    22 nor carry a burden out of your houses on the Sabbath day, nor do any work, but hallow the Sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers.
    23 But they did not obey nor incline their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear nor receive instruction.
    24 "And it shall be, if you heed Me carefully," says the LORD, "to bring no burden through the gates of this city on the Sabbath day, but hallow the Sabbath day, to do no work in it,
    25 then shall enter the gates of this city kings and princes sitting on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they and their princes, accompanied by the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and this city shall remain forever.
    26 And they shall come from the cities of Judah and from the places around Jerusalem, from the land of Benjamin and from the lowland, from the mountains and from the South, bringing burnt offerings and sacrifices, grain offerings and incense, bringing sacrifices of praise to the house of the LORD.
    27 "But if you will not heed Me to hallow the Sabbath day, such as not carrying a burden when entering the gates of Jerusalem on the Sabbath day, then I will kindle a fire in its gates, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched.""'

    1 Corinthians 1

    1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,
    2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:
    3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
    4 I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus,
    5 that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge,
    6 even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you,
    7 so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    8 who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    9 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
    10 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
    11 For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe's household, that there are contentions among you.
    12 Now I say this, that each of you says, "I am of Paul," or "I am of Apollos," or "I am of Cephas," or "I am of Christ."
    13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
    14 I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius,
    15 lest anyone should say that I had baptized in my own name.
    16 Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas. Besides, I do not know whether I baptized any other.
    17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.
    18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    19 For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."
    20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
    21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
    22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom;
    23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,
    24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
    25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
    26 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.
    27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;
    28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,
    29 that no flesh should glory in His presence.
    30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God--and righteousness and sanctification and redemption--
    31 that, as it is written, "He who glories, let him glory in the LORD."

    Psalms 51

    1 Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions.
    2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.
    3 For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me.
    4 Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight-- That You may be found just when You speak, And blameless when You judge.
    5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.
    6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.
    7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
    8 Make me hear joy and gladness, That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
    9 Hide Your face from my sins, And blot out all my iniquities.
    10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
    11 Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
    12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
    13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners shall be converted to You.
    14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, The God of my salvation, And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
    15 O Lord, open my lips, And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
    16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering.
    17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart-- These, O God, You will not despise.
    18 Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; Build the walls of Jerusalem.
    19 Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, With burnt offering and whole burnt offering; Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.

    Proverbs 17

    1 Better is a dry morsel with quietness, Than a house full of feasting with strife.
    2 A wise servant will rule over a son who causes shame, And will share an inheritance among the brothers.
    3 The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, But the LORD tests the hearts.
    4 An evildoer gives heed to false lips; A liar listens eagerly to a spiteful tongue.
    5 He who mocks the poor reproaches his Maker; He who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished.
    6 Children's children are the crown of old men, And the glory of children is their father.
    7 Excellent speech is not becoming to a fool, Much less lying lips to a prince.
    8 A present is a precious stone in the eyes of its possessor; Wherever he turns, he prospers.
    9 He who covers a transgression seeks love, But he who repeats a matter separates friends.
    10 Rebuke is more effective for a wise man Than a hundred blows on a fool.
    11 An evil man seeks only rebellion; Therefore a cruel messenger will be sent against him.
    12 Let a man meet a bear robbed of her cubs, Rather than a fool in his folly.
    13 Whoever rewards evil for good, Evil will not depart from his house.
    14 The beginning of strife is like releasing water; Therefore stop contention before a quarrel starts.
    15 He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD.
    16 Why is there in the hand of a fool the purchase price of wisdom, Since he has no heart for it?
    17 A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity.
    18 A man devoid of understanding shakes hands in a pledge, And becomes surety for his friend.
    19 He who loves transgression loves strife, And he who exalts his gate seeks destruction.
    20 He who has a deceitful heart finds no good, And he who has a perverse tongue falls into evil.
    21 He who begets a scoffer does so to his sorrow, And the father of a fool has no joy.
    22 A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.
    23 A wicked man accepts a bribe behind the back To pervert the ways of justice.
    24 Wisdom is in the sight of him who has understanding, But the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.
    25 A foolish son is a grief to his father, And bitterness to her who bore him.
    26 Also, to punish the righteous is not good, Nor to strike princes for their uprightness.
    27 He who has knowledge spares his words, And a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.
    28 Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; When he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive.
