    1 Samuel 21

    1 Now David came to Nob, to Ahimelech the priest. And Ahimelech was afraid when he met David, and said to him, "Why are you alone, and no one is with you?"
    2 So David said to Ahimelech the priest, "The king has ordered me on some business, and said to me, "Do not let anyone know anything about the business on which I send you, or what I have commanded you.' And I have directed my young men to such and such a place.
    3 Now therefore, what have you on hand? Give me five loaves of bread in my hand, or whatever can be found."
    4 And the priest answered David and said, "There is no common bread on hand; but there is holy bread, if the young men have at least kept themselves from women."
    5 Then David answered the priest, and said to him, "Truly, women have been kept from us about three days since I came out. And the vessels of the young men are holy, and the bread is in effect common, even though it was consecrated in the vessel this day."
    6 So the priest gave him holy bread; for there was no bread there but the showbread which had been taken from before the LORD, in order to put hot bread in its place on the day when it was taken away.
    7 Now a certain man of the servants of Saul was there that day, detained before the LORD. And his name was Doeg, an Edomite, the chief of the herdsmen who belonged to Saul.
    8 And David said to Ahimelech, "Is there not here on hand a spear or a sword? For I have brought neither my sword nor my weapons with me, because the king's business required haste."
    9 So the priest said, "The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you killed in the Valley of Elah, there it is, wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod. If you will take that, take it. For there is no other except that one here." And David said, "There is none like it; give it to me."
    10 Then David arose and fled that day from before Saul, and went to Achish the king of Gath.
    11 And the servants of Achish said to him, "Is this not David the king of the land? Did they not sing of him to one another in dances, saying: "Saul has slain his thousands, And David his ten thousands'?"
    12 Now David took these words to heart, and was very much afraid of Achish the king of Gath.
    13 So he changed his behavior before them, pretended madness in their hands, scratched on the doors of the gate, and let his saliva fall down on his beard.
    14 Then Achish said to his servants, "Look, you see the man is insane. Why have you brought him to me?
    15 Have I need of madmen, that you have brought this fellow to play the madman in my presence? Shall this fellow come into my house?"

    Luke 16

    1 He also said to His disciples: "There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man was wasting his goods.
    2 So he called him and said to him, "What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.'
    3 "Then the steward said within himself, "What shall I do? For my master is taking the stewardship away from me. I cannot dig; I am ashamed to beg.
    4 I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.'
    5 "So he called every one of his master's debtors to him, and said to the first, "How much do you owe my master?'
    6 And he said, "A hundred measures of oil.' So he said to him, "Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.'
    7 Then he said to another, "And how much do you owe?' So he said, "A hundred measures of wheat.' And he said to him, "Take your bill, and write eighty.'
    8 So the master commended the unjust steward because he had dealt shrewdly. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light.
    9 "And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.
    10 He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.
    11 Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
    12 And if you have not been faithful in what is another man's, who will give you what is your own?
    13 "No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."
    14 Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him.
    15 And He said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.
    16 "The law and the prophets were until John. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is pressing into it.
    17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tittle of the law to fail.
    18 "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced from her husband commits adultery.
    19 "There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day.
    20 But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate,
    21 desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
    22 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried.
    23 And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
    24 "Then he cried and said, "Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.'
    25 But Abraham said, "Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented.
    26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.'
    27 "Then he said, "I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father's house,
    28 for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.'
    29 Abraham said to him, "They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.'
    30 And he said, "No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.'
    31 But he said to him, "If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead."'

    Psalms 25

    1 To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
    2 O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me.
    3 Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.
    4 Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.
    5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.
    6 Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old.
    7 Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness' sake, O LORD.
    8 Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
    9 The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way.
    10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.
    11 For Your name's sake, O LORD, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.
    12 Who is the man that fears the LORD? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.
    13 He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his descendants shall inherit the earth.
    14 The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.
    15 My eyes are ever toward the LORD, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.
    16 Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me, For I am desolate and afflicted.
    17 The troubles of my heart have enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses!
    18 Look on my affliction and my pain, And forgive all my sins.
    19 Consider my enemies, for they are many; And they hate me with cruel hatred.
    20 Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.
    21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You.
    22 Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all their troubles!

    Proverbs 16

    1 The preparations of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.
    2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the spirits.
    3 Commit your works to the LORD, And your thoughts will be established.
    4 The LORD has made all for Himself, Yes, even the wicked for the day of doom.
    5 Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished.
    6 In mercy and truth Atonement is provided for iniquity; And by the fear of the LORD one departs from evil.
    7 When a man's ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
    8 Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice.
    9 A man's heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.
    10 Divination is on the lips of the king; His mouth must not transgress in judgment.
    11 Honest weights and scales are the LORD's; All the weights in the bag are His work.
    12 It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness, For a throne is established by righteousness.
    13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings, And they love him who speaks what is right.
    14 As messengers of death is the king's wrath, But a wise man will appease it.
    15 In the light of the king's face is life, And his favor is like a cloud of the latter rain.
    16 How much better to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.
    17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; He who keeps his way preserves his soul.
    18 Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.
    19 Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the spoil with the proud.
    20 He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he.
    21 The wise in heart will be called prudent, And sweetness of the lips increases learning.
    22 Understanding is a wellspring of life to him who has it. But the correction of fools is folly.
    23 The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, And adds learning to his lips.
    24 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.
    25 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
    26 The person who labors, labors for himself, For his hungry mouth drives him on.
    27 An ungodly man digs up evil, And it is on his lips like a burning fire.
    28 A perverse man sows strife, And a whisperer separates the best of friends.
    29 A violent man entices his neighbor, And leads him in a way that is not good.
    30 He winks his eye to devise perverse things; He purses his lips and brings about evil.
    31 The silver-haired head is a crown of glory, If it is found in the way of righteousness.
    32 He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
    33 The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from the LORD.
