    Numbers 20

    1 Then the children of Israel, the whole congregation, came into the Wilderness of Zin in the first month, and the people stayed in Kadesh; and Miriam died there and was buried there.
    2 Now there was no water for the congregation; so they gathered together against Moses and Aaron.
    3 And the people contended with Moses and spoke, saying: "If only we had died when our brethren died before the LORD!
    4 Why have you brought up the assembly of the LORD into this wilderness, that we and our animals should die here?
    5 And why have you made us come up out of Egypt, to bring us to this evil place? It is not a place of grain or figs or vines or pomegranates; nor is there any water to drink."
    6 So Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly to the door of the tabernacle of meeting, and they fell on their faces. And the glory of the LORD appeared to them.
    7 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
    8 "Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals."
    9 So Moses took the rod from before the LORD as He commanded him.
    10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, "Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?"
    11 Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank.
    12 Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, "Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them."
    13 This was the water of Meribah, because the children of Israel contended with the LORD, and He was hallowed among them.
    14 Now Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom. "Thus says your brother Israel: "You know all the hardship that has befallen us,
    15 how our fathers went down to Egypt, and we dwelt in Egypt a long time, and the Egyptians afflicted us and our fathers.
    16 When we cried out to the LORD, He heard our voice and sent the Angel and brought us up out of Egypt; now here we are in Kadesh, a city on the edge of your border.
    17 Please let us pass through your country. We will not pass through fields or vineyards, nor will we drink water from wells; we will go along the King's Highway; we will not turn aside to the right hand or to the left until we have passed through your territory."'
    18 Then Edom said to him, "You shall not pass through my land, lest I come out against you with the sword."
    19 So the children of Israel said to him, "We will go by the Highway, and if I or my livestock drink any of your water, then I will pay for it; let me only pass through on foot, nothing more."
    20 Then he said, "You shall not pass through." So Edom came out against them with many men and with a strong hand.
    21 Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his territory; so Israel turned away from him.
    22 Now the children of Israel, the whole congregation, journeyed from Kadesh and came to Mount Hor.
    23 And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron in Mount Hor by the border of the land of Edom, saying:
    24 "Aaron shall be gathered to his people, for he shall not enter the land which I have given to the children of Israel, because you rebelled against My word at the water of Meribah.
    25 Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up to Mount Hor;
    26 and strip Aaron of his garments and put them on Eleazar his son; for Aaron shall be gathered to his people and die there."
    27 So Moses did just as the LORD commanded, and they went up to Mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation.
    28 Moses stripped Aaron of his garments and put them on Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there on the top of the mountain. Then Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain.
    29 Now when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, all the house of Israel mourned for Aaron thirty days.

    Philippians 4

    1 Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved.
    2 I implore Euodia and I implore Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord.
    3 And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life.
    4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
    5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
    6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
    7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
    8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things.
    9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
    10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity.
    11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content:
    12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
    13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
    14 Nevertheless you have done well that you shared in my distress.
    15 Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only.
    16 For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities.
    17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.
    18 Indeed I have all and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God.
    19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
    20 Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.
    21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren who are with me greet you.
    22 All the saints greet you, but especially those who are of Caesar's household.
    23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

    Psalms 55

    1 Give ear to my prayer, O God, And do not hide Yourself from my supplication.
    2 Attend to me, and hear me; I am restless in my complaint, and moan noisily,
    3 Because of the voice of the enemy, Because of the oppression of the wicked; For they bring down trouble upon me, And in wrath they hate me.
    4 My heart is severely pained within me, And the terrors of death have fallen upon me.
    5 Fearfulness and trembling have come upon me, And horror has overwhelmed me.
    6 So I said, "Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.
    7 Indeed, I would wander far off, And remain in the wilderness.Selah
    8 I would hasten my escape From the windy storm and tempest."
    9 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues, For I have seen violence and strife in the city.
    10 Day and night they go around it on its walls; Iniquity and trouble are also in the midst of it.
    11 Destruction is in its midst; Oppression and deceit do not depart from its streets.
    12 For it is not an enemy who reproaches me; Then I could bear it. Nor is it one who hates me who has exalted himself against me; Then I could hide from him.
    13 But it was you, a man my equal, My companion and my acquaintance.
    14 We took sweet counsel together, And walked to the house of God in the throng.
    15 Let death seize them; Let them go down alive into hell, For wickedness is in their dwellings and among them.
    16 As for me, I will call upon God, And the LORD shall save me.
    17 Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, And He shall hear my voice.
    18 He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me, For there were many against me.
    19 God will hear, and afflict them, Even He who abides from of old.Selah Because they do not change, Therefore they do not fear God.
    20 He has put forth his hands against those who were at peace with him; He has broken his covenant.
    21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, But war was in his heart; His words were softer than oil, Yet they were drawn swords.
    22 Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.
    23 But You, O God, shall bring them down to the pit of destruction; Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; But I will trust in You.

    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.
