    Ezekiel 26

    1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, on the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
    2 "Son of man, because Tyre has said against Jerusalem, "Aha! She is broken who was the gateway of the peoples; now she is turned over to me; I shall be filled; she is laid waste.'
    3 "Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I am against you, O Tyre, and will cause many nations to come up against you, as the sea causes its waves to come up.
    4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers; I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rock.
    5 It shall be a place for spreading nets in the midst of the sea, for I have spoken,' says the Lord GOD; "it shall become plunder for the nations.
    6 Also her daughter villages which are in the fields shall be slain by the sword. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.'
    7 "For thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I will bring against Tyre from the north Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, king of kings, with horses, with chariots, and with horsemen, and an army with many people.
    8 He will slay with the sword your daughter villages in the fields; he will heap up a siege mound against you, build a wall against you, and raise a defense against you.
    9 He will direct his battering rams against your walls, and with his axes he will break down your towers.
    10 Because of the abundance of his horses, their dust will cover you; your walls will shake at the noise of the horsemen, the wagons, and the chariots, when he enters your gates, as men enter a city that has been breached.
    11 With the hooves of his horses he will trample all your streets; he will slay your people by the sword, and your strong pillars will fall to the ground.
    12 They will plunder your riches and pillage your merchandise; they will break down your walls and destroy your pleasant houses; they will lay your stones, your timber, and your soil in the midst of the water.
    13 I will put an end to the sound of your songs, and the sound of your harps shall be heard no more.
    14 I will make you like the top of a rock; you shall be a place for spreading nets, and you shall never be rebuilt, for I the LORD have spoken,' says the Lord GOD.
    15 "Thus says the Lord GOD to Tyre: "Will the coastlands not shake at the sound of your fall, when the wounded cry, when slaughter is made in the midst of you?
    16 Then all the princes of the sea will come down from their thrones, lay aside their robes, and take off their embroidered garments; they will clothe themselves with trembling; they will sit on the ground, tremble every moment, and be astonished at you.
    17 And they will take up a lamentation for you, and say to you: "How you have perished, O one inhabited by seafaring men, O renowned city, Who was strong at sea, She and her inhabitants, Who caused their terror to be on all her inhabitants!
    18 Now the coastlands tremble on the day of your fall; Yes, the coastlands by the sea are troubled at your departure."'
    19 "For thus says the Lord GOD: "When I make you a desolate city, like cities that are not inhabited, when I bring the deep upon you, and great waters cover you,
    20 then I will bring you down with those who descend into the Pit, to the people of old, and I will make you dwell in the lowest part of the earth, in places desolate from antiquity, with those who go down to the Pit, so that you may never be inhabited; and I shall establish glory in the land of the living.
    21 I will make you a terror, and you shall be no more; though you are sought for, you will never be found again,' says the Lord GOD."

    2 Timothy 4

    1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:
    2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
    3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;
    4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
    5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
    6 For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand.
    7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
    8 Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
    9 Be diligent to come to me quickly;
    10 for Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world, and has departed for Thessalonica--Crescens for Galatia, Titus for Dalmatia.
    11 Only Luke is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, for he is useful to me for ministry.
    12 And Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus.
    13 Bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas when you come--and the books, especially the parchments.
    14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm. May the Lord repay him according to his works.
    15 You also must beware of him, for he has greatly resisted our words.
    16 At my first defense no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be charged against them.
    17 But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. Also I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
    18 And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen!
    19 Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus.
    20 Erastus stayed in Corinth, but Trophimus I have left in Miletus sick.
    21 Do your utmost to come before winter. Eubulus greets you, as well as Pudens, Linus, Claudia, and all the brethren.
    22 The Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.

    Psalms 117

    1 Praise the LORD, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all you peoples!
    2 For His merciful kindness is great toward us, And the truth of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!

    Proverbs 22

    1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold.
    2 The rich and the poor have this in common, The LORD is the maker of them all.
    3 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished.
    4 By humility and the fear of the LORD Are riches and honor and life.
    5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; He who guards his soul will be far from them.
    6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
    7 The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender.
    8 He who sows iniquity will reap sorrow, And the rod of his anger will fail.
    9 He who has a generous eye will be blessed, For he gives of his bread to the poor.
    10 Cast out the scoffer, and contention will leave; Yes, strife and reproach will cease.
    11 He who loves purity of heart And has grace on his lips, The king will be his friend.
    12 The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, But He overthrows the words of the faithless.
    13 The lazy man says, "There is a lion outside! I shall be slain in the streets!"
    14 The mouth of an immoral woman is a deep pit; He who is abhorred by the LORD will fall there.
    15 Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him.
    16 He who oppresses the poor to increase his riches, And he who gives to the rich, will surely come to poverty.
    17 Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, And apply your heart to my knowledge;
    18 For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; Let them all be fixed upon your lips,
    19 So that your trust may be in the LORD; I have instructed you today, even you.
    20 Have I not written to you excellent things Of counsels and knowledge,
    21 That I may make you know the certainty of the words of truth, That you may answer words of truth To those who send to you?
    22 Do not rob the poor because he is poor, Nor oppress the afflicted at the gate;
    23 For the LORD will plead their cause, And plunder the soul of those who plunder them.
    24 Make no friendship with an angry man, And with a furious man do not go,
    25 Lest you learn his ways And set a snare for your soul.
    26 Do not be one of those who shakes hands in a pledge, One of those who is surety for debts;
    27 If you have nothing with which to pay, Why should he take away your bed from under you?
    28 Do not remove the ancient landmark Which your fathers have set.
    29 Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men.
