    Isaiah 30

    1 "Woe to the rebellious children," says the LORD, "Who take counsel, but not of Me, And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, That they may add sin to sin;
    2 Who walk to go down to Egypt, And have not asked My advice, To strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, And to trust in the shadow of Egypt!
    3 Therefore the strength of Pharaoh Shall be your shame, And trust in the shadow of Egypt Shall be your humiliation.
    4 For his princes were at Zoan, And his ambassadors came to Hanes.
    5 They were all ashamed of a people who could not benefit them, Or be help or benefit, But a shame and also a reproach."
    6 The burden against the beasts of the South. Through a land of trouble and anguish, From which came the lioness and lion, The viper and fiery flying serpent, They will carry their riches on the backs of young donkeys, And their treasures on the humps of camels, To a people who shall not profit;
    7 For the Egyptians shall help in vain and to no purpose. Therefore I have called her Rahab-Hem-Shebeth.
    8 Now go, write it before them on a tablet, And note it on a scroll, That it may be for time to come, Forever and ever:
    9 That this is a rebellious people, Lying children, Children who will not hear the law of the LORD;
    10 Who say to the seers, "Do not see," And to the prophets, "Do not prophesy to us right things; Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits.
    11 Get out of the way, Turn aside from the path, Cause the Holy One of Israel To cease from before us."
    12 Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel: "Because you despise this word, And trust in oppression and perversity, And rely on them,
    13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you Like a breach ready to fall, A bulge in a high wall, Whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant.
    14 And He shall break it like the breaking of the potter's vessel, Which is broken in pieces; He shall not spare. So there shall not be found among its fragments A shard to take fire from the hearth, Or to take water from the cistern."
    15 For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: "In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength." But you would not,
    16 And you said, "No, for we will flee on horses"-- Therefore you shall flee! And, "We will ride on swift horses"-- Therefore those who pursue you shall be swift!
    17 One thousand shall flee at the threat of one, At the threat of five you shall flee, Till you are left as a pole on top of a mountain And as a banner on a hill.
    18 Therefore the LORD will wait, that He may be gracious to you; And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; Blessed are all those who wait for Him.
    19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem; You shall weep no more. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry; When He hears it, He will answer you.
    20 And though the Lord gives you The bread of adversity and the water of affliction, Yet your teachers will not be moved into a corner anymore, But your eyes shall see your teachers.
    21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.
    22 You will also defile the covering of your images of silver, And the ornament of your molded images of gold. You will throw them away as an unclean thing; You will say to them, "Get away!"
    23 Then He will give the rain for your seed With which you sow the ground, And bread of the increase of the earth; It will be fat and plentiful. In that day your cattle will feed In large pastures.
    24 Likewise the oxen and the young donkeys that work the ground Will eat cured fodder, Which has been winnowed with the shovel and fan.
    25 There will be on every high mountain And on every high hill Rivers and streams of waters, In the day of the great slaughter, When the towers fall.
    26 Moreover the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, And the light of the sun will be sevenfold, As the light of seven days, In the day that the LORD binds up the bruise of His people And heals the stroke of their wound.
    27 Behold, the name of the LORD comes from afar, Burning with His anger, And His burden is heavy; His lips are full of indignation, And His tongue like a devouring fire.
    28 His breath is like an overflowing stream, Which reaches up to the neck, To sift the nations with the sieve of futility; And there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, Causing them to err.
    29 You shall have a song As in the night when a holy festival is kept, And gladness of heart as when one goes with a flute, To come into the mountain of the LORD, To the Mighty One of Israel.
    30 The LORD will cause His glorious voice to be heard, And show the descent of His arm, With the indignation of His anger And the flame of a devouring fire, With scattering, tempest, and hailstones.
    31 For through the voice of the LORD Assyria will be beaten down, As He strikes with the rod.
    32 And in every place where the staff of punishment passes, Which the LORD lays on him, It will be with tambourines and harps; And in battles of brandishing He will fight with it.
    33 For Tophet was established of old, Yes, for the king it is prepared. He has made it deep and large; Its pyre is fire with much wood; The breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, Kindles it.

    John 13

    1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.
    2 And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray Him,
    3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God,
    4 rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself.
    5 After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.
    6 Then He came to Simon Peter. And Peter said to Him, "Lord, are You washing my feet?"
    7 Jesus answered and said to him, "What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this."
    8 Peter said to Him, "You shall never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me."
    9 Simon Peter said to Him, "Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!"
    10 Jesus said to him, "He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you."
    11 For He knew who would betray Him; therefore He said, "You are not all clean."
    12 So when He had washed their feet, taken His garments, and sat down again, He said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you?
    13 You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am.
    14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.
    15 For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.
    16 Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him.
    17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.
    18 "I do not speak concerning all of you. I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, "He who eats bread with Me has lifted up his heel against Me.'
    19 Now I tell you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe that I am He.
    20 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me."
    21 When Jesus had said these things, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me."
    22 Then the disciples looked at one another, perplexed about whom He spoke.
    23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.
    24 Simon Peter therefore motioned to him to ask who it was of whom He spoke.
    25 Then, leaning back on Jesus' breast, he said to Him, "Lord, who is it?"
    26 Jesus answered, "It is he to whom I shall give a piece of bread when I have dipped it." And having dipped the bread, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
    27 Now after the piece of bread, Satan entered him. Then Jesus said to him, "What you do, do quickly."
    28 But no one at the table knew for what reason He said this to him.
    29 For some thought, because Judas had the money box, that Jesus had said to him, "Buy those things we need for the feast," or that he should give something to the poor.
    30 Having received the piece of bread, he then went out immediately. And it was night.
    31 So, when he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him.
    32 If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and glorify Him immediately.
    33 Little children, I shall be with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, "Where I am going, you cannot come,' so now I say to you.
    34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
    35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
    36 Simon Peter said to Him, "Lord, where are You going?" Jesus answered him, "Where I am going you cannot follow Me now, but you shall follow Me afterward."
    37 Peter said to Him, "Lord, why can I not follow You now? I will lay down my life for Your sake."
    38 Jesus answered him, "Will you lay down your life for My sake? Most assuredly, I say to you, the rooster shall not crow till you have denied Me three times.

    Psalms 148

    1 Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights!
    2 Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts!
    3 Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light!
    4 Praise Him, you heavens of heavens, And you waters above the heavens!
    5 Let them praise the name of the LORD, For He commanded and they were created.
    6 He also established them forever and ever; He made a decree which shall not pass away.
    7 Praise the LORD from the earth, You great sea creatures and all the depths;
    8 Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;
    9 Mountains and all hills; Fruitful trees and all cedars;
    10 Beasts and all cattle; Creeping things and flying fowl;
    11 Kings of the earth and all peoples; Princes and all judges of the earth;
    12 Both young men and maidens; Old men and children.
    13 Let them praise the name of the LORD, For His name alone is exalted; His glory is above the earth and heaven.
    14 And He has exalted the horn of His people, The praise of all His saints-- Of the children of Israel, A people near to Him. Praise the LORD!

    Proverbs 25

    1 These also are proverbs of Solomon which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied:
    2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
    3 As the heavens for height and the earth for depth, So the heart of kings is unsearchable.
    4 Take away the dross from silver, And it will go to the silversmith for jewelry.
    5 Take away the wicked from before the king, And his throne will be established in righteousness.
    6 Do not exalt yourself in the presence of the king, And do not stand in the place of the great;
    7 For it is better that he say to you, "Come up here," Than that you should be put lower in the presence of the prince, Whom your eyes have seen.
    8 Do not go hastily to court; For what will you do in the end, When your neighbor has put you to shame?
    9 Debate your case with your neighbor, And do not disclose the secret to another;
    10 Lest he who hears it expose your shame, And your reputation be ruined.
    11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold In settings of silver.
    12 Like an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold Is a wise rebuker to an obedient ear.
    13 Like the cold of snow in time of harvest Is a faithful messenger to those who send him, For he refreshes the soul of his masters.
    14 Whoever falsely boasts of giving Is like clouds and wind without rain.
    15 By long forbearance a ruler is persuaded, And a gentle tongue breaks a bone.
    16 Have you found honey? Eat only as much as you need, Lest you be filled with it and vomit.
    17 Seldom set foot in your neighbor's house, Lest he become weary of you and hate you.
    18 A man who bears false witness against his neighbor Is like a club, a sword, and a sharp arrow.
    19 Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble Is like a bad tooth and a foot out of joint.
    20 Like one who takes away a garment in cold weather, And like vinegar on soda, Is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.
    21 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;
    22 For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, And the LORD will reward you.
    23 The north wind brings forth rain, And a backbiting tongue an angry countenance.
    24 It is better to dwell in a corner of a housetop, Than in a house shared with a contentious woman.
    25 As cold water to a weary soul, So is good news from a far country.
    26 A righteous man who falters before the wicked Is like a murky spring and a polluted well.
    27 It is not good to eat much honey; So to seek one's own glory is not glory.
    28 Whoever has no rule over his own spirit Is like a city broken down, without walls.
