    Job 20

    1 Then Zophar the Naamathite answered and said:
    2 "Therefore my anxious thoughts make me answer, Because of the turmoil within me.
    3 I have heard the rebuke that reproaches me, And the spirit of my understanding causes me to answer.
    4 "Do you not know this of old, Since man was placed on earth,
    5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, And the joy of the hypocrite is but for a moment?
    6 Though his haughtiness mounts up to the heavens, And his head reaches to the clouds,
    7 Yet he will perish forever like his own refuse; Those who have seen him will say, "Where is he?'
    8 He will fly away like a dream, and not be found; Yes, he will be chased away like a vision of the night.
    9 The eye that saw him will see him no more, Nor will his place behold him anymore.
    10 His children will seek the favor of the poor, And his hands will restore his wealth.
    11 His bones are full of his youthful vigor, But it will lie down with him in the dust.
    12 "Though evil is sweet in his mouth, And he hides it under his tongue,
    13 Though he spares it and does not forsake it, But still keeps it in his mouth,
    14 Yet his food in his stomach turns sour; It becomes cobra venom within him.
    15 He swallows down riches And vomits them up again; God casts them out of his belly.
    16 He will suck the poison of cobras; The viper's tongue will slay him.
    17 He will not see the streams, The rivers flowing with honey and cream.
    18 He will restore that for which he labored, And will not swallow it down; From the proceeds of business He will get no enjoyment.
    19 For he has oppressed and forsaken the poor, He has violently seized a house which he did not build.
    20 "Because he knows no quietness in his heart, He will not save anything he desires.
    21 Nothing is left for him to eat; Therefore his well-being will not last.
    22 In his self-sufficiency he will be in distress; Every hand of misery will come against him.
    23 When he is about to fill his stomach, God will cast on him the fury of His wrath, And will rain it on him while he is eating.
    24 He will flee from the iron weapon; A bronze bow will pierce him through.
    25 It is drawn, and comes out of the body; Yes, the glittering point comes out of his gall. Terrors come upon him;
    26 Total darkness is reserved for his treasures. An unfanned fire will consume him; It shall go ill with him who is left in his tent.
    27 The heavens will reveal his iniquity, And the earth will rise up against him.
    28 The increase of his house will depart, And his goods will flow away in the day of His wrath.
    29 This is the portion from God for a wicked man, The heritage appointed to him by God."

    Hebrews 4

    1 Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it.
    2 For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
    3 For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said: "So I swore in My wrath, "They shall not enter My rest,"' although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
    4 For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: "And God rested on the seventh day from all His works";
    5 and again in this place: "They shall not enter My rest."
    6 Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience,
    7 again He designates a certain day, saying in David, "Today," after such a long time, as it has been said: "Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts."
    8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day.
    9 There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.
    10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.
    11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.
    12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
    13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
    14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
    15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.
    16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

    Psalms 45

    1 My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
    2 You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever.
    3 Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, With Your glory and Your majesty.
    4 And in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness; And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things.
    5 Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King's enemies; The peoples fall under You.
    6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
    7 You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.
    8 All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia, Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad.
    9 Kings' daughters are among Your honorable women; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
    10 Listen, O daughter, Consider and incline your ear; Forget your own people also, and your father's house;
    11 So the King will greatly desire your beauty; Because He is your Lord, worship Him.
    12 And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; The rich among the people will seek your favor.
    13 The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace; Her clothing is woven with gold.
    14 She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors; The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You.
    15 With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought; They shall enter the King's palace.
    16 Instead of Your fathers shall be Your sons, Whom You shall make princes in all the earth.
    17 I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the people shall praise You forever and ever.

    Proverbs 04

    1 Hear, my children, the instruction of a father, And give attention to know understanding;
    2 For I give you good doctrine: Do not forsake my law.
    3 When I was my father's son, Tender and the only one in the sight of my mother,
    4 He also taught me, and said to me: "Let your heart retain my words; Keep my commands, and live.
    5 Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
    6 Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you.
    7 Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.
    8 Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her.
    9 She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you."
    10 Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, And the years of your life will be many.
    11 I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths.
    12 When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, And when you run, you will not stumble.
    13 Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; Keep her, for she is your life.
    14 Do not enter the path of the wicked, And do not walk in the way of evil.
    15 Avoid it, do not travel on it; Turn away from it and pass on.
    16 For they do not sleep unless they have done evil; And their sleep is taken away unless they make someone fall.
    17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, And drink the wine of violence.
    18 But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
    19 The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know what makes them stumble.
    20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.
    21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;
    22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
    23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.
    24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you.
    25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, And your eyelids look right before you.
    26 Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established.
    27 Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.
