    Joshua 11

    1 And it came to pass, when Jabin king of Hazor heard these things, that he sent to Jobab king of Madon, to the king of Shimron, to the king of Achshaph,
    2 and to the kings who were from the north, in the mountains, in the plain south of Chinneroth, in the lowland, and in the heights of Dor on the west,
    3 to the Canaanites in the east and in the west, the Amorite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Jebusite in the mountains, and the Hivite below Hermon in the land of Mizpah.
    4 So they went out, they and all their armies with them, as many people as the sand that is on the seashore in multitude, with very many horses and chariots.
    5 And when all these kings had met together, they came and camped together at the waters of Merom to fight against Israel.
    6 But the LORD said to Joshua, "Do not be afraid because of them, for tomorrow about this time I will deliver all of them slain before Israel. You shall hamstring their horses and burn their chariots with fire."
    7 So Joshua and all the people of war with him came against them suddenly by the waters of Merom, and they attacked them.
    8 And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who defeated them and chased them to Greater Sidon, to the Brook Misrephoth, and to the Valley of Mizpah eastward; they attacked them until they left none of them remaining.
    9 So Joshua did to them as the LORD had told him: he hamstrung their horses and burned their chariots with fire.
    10 Joshua turned back at that time and took Hazor, and struck its king with the sword; for Hazor was formerly the head of all those kingdoms.
    11 And they struck all the people who were in it with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them. There was none left breathing. Then he burned Hazor with fire.
    12 So all the cities of those kings, and all their kings, Joshua took and struck with the edge of the sword. He utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded.
    13 But as for the cities that stood on their mounds, Israel burned none of them, except Hazor only, which Joshua burned.
    14 And all the spoil of these cities and the livestock, the children of Israel took as booty for themselves; but they struck every man with the edge of the sword until they had destroyed them, and they left none breathing.
    15 As the LORD had commanded Moses his servant, so Moses commanded Joshua, and so Joshua did. He left nothing undone of all that the LORD had commanded Moses.
    16 Thus Joshua took all this land: the mountain country, all the South, all the land of Goshen, the lowland, and the Jordan plain --the mountains of Israel and its lowlands,
    17 from Mount Halak and the ascent to Seir, even as far as Baal Gad in the Valley of Lebanon below Mount Hermon. He captured all their kings, and struck them down and killed them.
    18 Joshua made war a long time with all those kings.
    19 There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel, except the Hivites, the inhabitants of Gibeon. All the others they took in battle.
    20 For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that He might utterly destroy them, and that they might receive no mercy, but that He might destroy them, as the LORD had commanded Moses.
    21 And at that time Joshua came and cut off the Anakim from the mountains: from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, from all the mountains of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel; Joshua utterly destroyed them with their cities.
    22 None of the Anakim were left in the land of the children of Israel; they remained only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod.
    23 So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD had said to Moses; and Joshua gave it as an inheritance to Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. Then the land rested from war.

    Matthew 1

    1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:
    2 Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers.
    3 Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram.
    4 Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon.
    5 Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse,
    6 and Jesse begot David the king. David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah.
    7 Solomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa.
    8 Asa begot Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah.
    9 Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah.
    10 Hezekiah begot Manasseh, Manasseh begot Amon, and Amon begot Josiah.
    11 Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers about the time they were carried away to Babylon.
    12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel.
    13 Zerubbabel begot Abiud, Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor.
    14 Azor begot Zadok, Zadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud.
    15 Eliud begot Eleazar, Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob.
    16 And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.
    17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.
    18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.
    19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly.
    20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
    21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins."
    22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:
    23 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us."
    24 Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife,
    25 and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name JESUS.

    Psalms 116

    1 I love the LORD, because He has heard My voice and my supplications.
    2 Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.
    3 The pains of death surrounded me, And the pangs of Sheol laid hold of me; I found trouble and sorrow.
    4 Then I called upon the name of the LORD: "O LORD, I implore You, deliver my soul!"
    5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; Yes, our God is merciful.
    6 The LORD preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me.
    7 Return to your rest, O my soul, For the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.
    8 For You have delivered my soul from death, My eyes from tears, And my feet from falling.
    9 I will walk before the LORD In the land of the living.
    10 I believed, therefore I spoke, "I am greatly afflicted."
    11 I said in my haste, "All men are liars."
    12 What shall I render to the LORD For all His benefits toward me?
    13 I will take up the cup of salvation, And call upon the name of the LORD.
    14 I will pay my vows to the LORD Now in the presence of all His people.
    15 Precious in the sight of the LORD Is the death of His saints.
    16 O LORD, truly I am Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant; You have loosed my bonds.
    17 I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving, And will call upon the name of the LORD.
    18 I will pay my vows to the LORD Now in the presence of all His people,
    19 In the courts of the LORD's house, In the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Praise the LORD!

    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.
