    Isaiah 52

    1 Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; Put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city! For the uncircumcised and the unclean Shall no longer come to you.
    2 Shake yourself from the dust, arise; Sit down, O Jerusalem! Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion!
    3 For thus says the LORD: "You have sold yourselves for nothing, And you shall be redeemed without money."
    4 For thus says the Lord GOD: "My people went down at first Into Egypt to dwell there; Then the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.
    5 Now therefore, what have I here," says the LORD, "That My people are taken away for nothing? Those who rule over them Make them wail," says the LORD, "And My name is blasphemed continually every day.
    6 Therefore My people shall know My name; Therefore they shall know in that day That I am He who speaks: "Behold, it is I."'
    7 How beautiful upon the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
    8 Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, With their voices they shall sing together; For they shall see eye to eye When the LORD brings back Zion.
    9 Break forth into joy, sing together, You waste places of Jerusalem! For the LORD has comforted His people, He has redeemed Jerusalem.
    10 The LORD has made bare His holy arm In the eyes of all the nations; And all the ends of the earth shall see The salvation of our God.
    11 Depart! Depart! Go out from there, Touch no unclean thing; Go out from the midst of her, Be clean, You who bear the vessels of the LORD.
    12 For you shall not go out with haste, Nor go by flight; For the LORD will go before you, And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
    13 Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.
    14 Just as many were astonished at you, So His visage was marred more than any man, And His form more than the sons of men;
    15 So shall He sprinkle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him; For what had not been told them they shall see, And what they had not heard they shall consider.

    Mark 14

    1 After two days it was the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take Him by trickery and put Him to death.
    2 But they said, "Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar of the people."
    3 And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head.
    4 But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and said, "Why was this fragrant oil wasted?
    5 For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor." And they criticized her sharply.
    6 But Jesus said, "Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me.
    7 For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good; but Me you do not have always.
    8 She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint My body for burial.
    9 Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her."
    10 Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Him to them.
    11 And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. So he sought how he might conveniently betray Him.
    12 Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they killed the Passover lamb, His disciples said to Him, "Where do You want us to go and prepare, that You may eat the Passover?"
    13 And He sent out two of His disciples and said to them, "Go into the city, and a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him.
    14 Wherever he goes in, say to the master of the house, "The Teacher says, "Where is the guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?"'
    15 Then he will show you a large upper room, furnished and prepared; there make ready for us."
    16 So His disciples went out, and came into the city, and found it just as He had said to them; and they prepared the Passover.
    17 In the evening He came with the twelve.
    18 Now as they sat and ate, Jesus said, "Assuredly, I say to you, one of you who eats with Me will betray Me."
    19 And they began to be sorrowful, and to say to Him one by one, "Is it I?" And another said, "Is it I?"
    20 He answered and said to them, "It is one of the twelve, who dips with Me in the dish.
    21 The Son of Man indeed goes just as it is written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had never been born."
    22 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them and said, "Take, eat; this is My body."
    23 Then He took the cup, and when He had given thanks He gave it to them, and they all drank from it.
    24 And He said to them, "This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.
    25 Assuredly, I say to you, I will no longer drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God."
    26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
    27 Then Jesus said to them, "All of you will be made to stumble because of Me this night, for it is written: "I will strike the Shepherd, And the sheep will be scattered.'
    28 "But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee."
    29 Peter said to Him, "Even if all are made to stumble, yet I will not be."
    30 Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you that today, even this night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times."
    31 But he spoke more vehemently, "If I have to die with You, I will not deny You!" And they all said likewise.
    32 Then they came to a place which was named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, "Sit here while I pray."
    33 And He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to be troubled and deeply distressed.
    34 Then He said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch."
    35 He went a little farther, and fell on the ground, and prayed that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
    36 And He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will."
    37 Then He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? Could you not watch one hour?
    38 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."
    39 Again He went away and prayed, and spoke the same words.
    40 And when He returned, He found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy; and they did not know what to answer Him.
    41 Then He came the third time and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? It is enough! The hour has come; behold, the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.
    42 Rise, let us be going. See, My betrayer is at hand."
    43 And immediately, while He was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
    44 Now His betrayer had given them a signal, saying, "Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him and lead Him away safely."
    45 As soon as he had come, immediately he went up to Him and said to Him, "Rabbi, Rabbi!" and kissed Him.
    46 Then they laid their hands on Him and took Him.
    47 And one of those who stood by drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
    48 Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs to take Me?
    49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize Me. But the Scriptures must be fulfilled."
    50 Then they all forsook Him and fled.
    51 Now a certain young man followed Him, having a linen cloth thrown around his naked body. And the young men laid hold of him,
    52 and he left the linen cloth and fled from them naked.
    53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest; and with him were assembled all the chief priests, the elders, and the scribes.
    54 But Peter followed Him at a distance, right into the courtyard of the high priest. And he sat with the servants and warmed himself at the fire.
    55 Now the chief priests and all the council sought testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, but found none.
    56 For many bore false witness against Him, but their testimonies did not agree.
    57 Then some rose up and bore false witness against Him, saying,
    58 "We heard Him say, "I will destroy this temple made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands."'
    59 But not even then did their testimony agree.
    60 And the high priest stood up in the midst and asked Jesus, saying, "Do You answer nothing? What is it these men testify against You?"
    61 But He kept silent and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked Him, saying to Him, "Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?"
    62 Jesus said, "I am. And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven."
    63 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, "What further need do we have of witnesses?
    64 You have heard the blasphemy! What do you think?" And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death.
    65 Then some began to spit on Him, and to blindfold Him, and to beat Him, and to say to Him, "Prophesy!" And the officers struck Him with the palms of their hands.
    66 Now as Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came.
    67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, "You also were with Jesus of Nazareth."
    68 But he denied it, saying, "I neither know nor understand what you are saying." And he went out on the porch, and a rooster crowed.
    69 And the servant girl saw him again, and began to say to those who stood by, "This is one of them."
    70 But he denied it again. And a little later those who stood by said to Peter again, "Surely you are one of them; for you are a Galilean, and your speech shows it."
    71 Then he began to curse and swear, "I do not know this Man of whom you speak!"
    72 A second time the rooster crowed. Then Peter called to mind the word that Jesus had said to him, "Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times." And when he thought about it, he wept.

    Psalms 139

    1 O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
    2 You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off.
    3 You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways.
    4 For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.
    5 You have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.
    6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.
    7 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
    8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
    9 If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
    10 Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.
    11 If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on me," Even the night shall be light about me;
    12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
    13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb.
    14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
    15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
    16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
    17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
    18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.
    19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God! Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.
    20 For they speak against You wickedly; Your enemies take Your name in vain.
    21 Do I not hate them, O LORD, who hate You? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
    22 I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies.
    23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties;
    24 And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.

    Proverbs 05

    1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom; Lend your ear to my understanding,
    2 That you may preserve discretion, And your lips may keep knowledge.
    3 For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil;
    4 But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword.
    5 Her feet go down to death, Her steps lay hold of hell.
    6 Lest you ponder her path of life-- Her ways are unstable; You do not know them.
    7 Therefore hear me now, my children, And do not depart from the words of my mouth.
    8 Remove your way far from her, And do not go near the door of her house,
    9 Lest you give your honor to others, And your years to the cruel one;
    10 Lest aliens be filled with your wealth, And your labors go to the house of a foreigner;
    11 And you mourn at last, When your flesh and your body are consumed,
    12 And say: "How I have hated instruction, And my heart despised correction!
    13 I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined my ear to those who instructed me!
    14 I was on the verge of total ruin, In the midst of the assembly and congregation."
    15 Drink water from your own cistern, And running water from your own well.
    16 Should your fountains be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets?
    17 Let them be only your own, And not for strangers with you.
    18 Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
    19 As a loving deer and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; And always be enraptured with her love.
    20 For why should you, my son, be enraptured by an immoral woman, And be embraced in the arms of a seductress?
    21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He ponders all his paths.
    22 His own iniquities entrap the wicked man, And he is caught in the cords of his sin.
    23 He shall die for lack of instruction, And in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
