    1 Kings 19

    1 And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, also how he had executed all the prophets with the sword.
    2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, "So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time."
    3 And when he saw that, he arose and ran for his life, and went to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.
    4 But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, "It is enough! Now, LORD, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!"
    5 Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel touched him, and said to him, "Arise and eat."
    6 Then he looked, and there by his head was a cake baked on coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and lay down again.
    7 And the angel of the LORD came back the second time, and touched him, and said, "Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you."
    8 So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Horeb, the mountain of God.
    9 And there he went into a cave, and spent the night in that place; and behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and He said to him, "What are you doing here, Elijah?"
    10 So he said, "I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life."
    11 Then He said, "Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD." And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake;
    12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
    13 So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, "What are you doing here, Elijah?"
    14 And he said, "I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts; because the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life."
    15 Then the LORD said to him: "Go, return on your way to the Wilderness of Damascus; and when you arrive, anoint Hazael as king over Syria.
    16 Also you shall anoint Jehu the son of Nimshi as king over Israel. And Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place.
    17 It shall be that whoever escapes the sword of Hazael, Jehu will kill; and whoever escapes the sword of Jehu, Elisha will kill.
    18 Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him."
    19 So he departed from there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him.
    20 And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah, and said, "Please let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you." And he said to him, "Go back again, for what have I done to you?"
    21 So Elisha turned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen and slaughtered them and boiled their flesh, using the oxen's equipment, and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he arose and followed Elijah, and became his servant.

    Acts 2

    1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
    2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
    3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.
    4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
    5 And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.
    6 And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language.
    7 Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, "Look, are not all these who speak Galileans?
    8 And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born?
    9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,
    10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes,
    11 Cretans and Arabs--we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God."
    12 So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, "Whatever could this mean?"
    13 Others mocking said, "They are full of new wine."
    14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, "Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words.
    15 For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day.
    16 But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
    17 "And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.
    18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy.
    19 I will show wonders in heaven above And signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
    20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD.
    21 And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.'
    22 "Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know--
    23 Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death;
    24 whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it.
    25 For David says concerning Him: "I foresaw the LORD always before my face, For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken.
    26 Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad; Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.
    27 For You will not leave my soul in Hades, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
    28 You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your presence.'
    29 "Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.
    30 Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne,
    31 he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption.
    32 This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses.
    33 Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear.
    34 "For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: "The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit at My right hand,
    35 Till I make Your enemies Your footstool."'
    36 "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ."
    37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?"
    38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
    39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call."
    40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, "Be saved from this perverse generation."
    41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.
    42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
    43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.
    44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common,
    45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.
    46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart,
    47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

    Psalms 78

    1 Give ear, O my people, to my law; Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
    2 I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old,
    3 Which we have heard and known, And our fathers have told us.
    4 We will not hide them from their children, Telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.
    5 For He established a testimony in Jacob, And appointed a law in Israel, Which He commanded our fathers, That they should make them known to their children;
    6 That the generation to come might know them, The children who would be born, That they may arise and declare them to their children,
    7 That they may set their hope in God, And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments;
    8 And may not be like their fathers, A stubborn and rebellious generation, A generation that did not set its heart aright, And whose spirit was not faithful to God.
    9 The children of Ephraim, being armed and carrying bows, Turned back in the day of battle.
    10 They did not keep the covenant of God; They refused to walk in His law,
    11 And forgot His works And His wonders that He had shown them.
    12 Marvelous things He did in the sight of their fathers, In the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
    13 He divided the sea and caused them to pass through; And He made the waters stand up like a heap.
    14 In the daytime also He led them with the cloud, And all the night with a light of fire.
    15 He split the rocks in the wilderness, And gave them drink in abundance like the depths.
    16 He also brought streams out of the rock, And caused waters to run down like rivers.
    17 But they sinned even more against Him By rebelling against the Most High in the wilderness.
    18 And they tested God in their heart By asking for the food of their fancy.
    19 Yes, they spoke against God: They said, "Can God prepare a table in the wilderness?
    20 Behold, He struck the rock, So that the waters gushed out, And the streams overflowed. Can He give bread also? Can He provide meat for His people?
    21 Therefore the LORD heard this and was furious; So a fire was kindled against Jacob, And anger also came up against Israel,
    22 Because they did not believe in God, And did not trust in His salvation.
    23 Yet He had commanded the clouds above, And opened the doors of heaven,
    24 Had rained down manna on them to eat, And given them of the bread of heaven.
    25 Men ate angels' food; He sent them food to the full.
    26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heavens; And by His power He brought in the south wind.
    27 He also rained meat on them like the dust, Feathered fowl like the sand of the seas;
    28 And He let them fall in the midst of their camp, All around their dwellings.
    29 So they ate and were well filled, For He gave them their own desire.
    30 They were not deprived of their craving; But while their food was still in their mouths,
    31 The wrath of God came against them, And slew the stoutest of them, And struck down the choice men of Israel.
    32 In spite of this they still sinned, And did not believe in His wondrous works.
    33 Therefore their days He consumed in futility, And their years in fear.
    34 When He slew them, then they sought Him; And they returned and sought earnestly for God.
    35 Then they remembered that God was their rock, And the Most High God their Redeemer.
    36 Nevertheless they flattered Him with their mouth, And they lied to Him with their tongue;
    37 For their heart was not steadfast with Him, Nor were they faithful in His covenant.
    38 But He, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, And did not destroy them. Yes, many a time He turned His anger away, And did not stir up all His wrath;
    39 For He remembered that they were but flesh, A breath that passes away and does not come again.
    40 How often they provoked Him in the wilderness, And grieved Him in the desert!
    41 Yes, again and again they tempted God, And limited the Holy One of Israel.
    42 They did not remember His power: The day when He redeemed them from the enemy,
    43 When He worked His signs in Egypt, And His wonders in the field of Zoan;
    44 Turned their rivers into blood, And their streams, that they could not drink.
    45 He sent swarms of flies among them, which devoured them, And frogs, which destroyed them.
    46 He also gave their crops to the caterpillar, And their labor to the locust.
    47 He destroyed their vines with hail, And their sycamore trees with frost.
    48 He also gave up their cattle to the hail, And their flocks to fiery lightning.
    49 He cast on them the fierceness of His anger, Wrath, indignation, and trouble, By sending angels of destruction among them.
    50 He made a path for His anger; He did not spare their soul from death, But gave their life over to the plague,
    51 And destroyed all the firstborn in Egypt, The first of their strength in the tents of Ham.
    52 But He made His own people go forth like sheep, And guided them in the wilderness like a flock;
    53 And He led them on safely, so that they did not fear; But the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
    54 And He brought them to His holy border, This mountain which His right hand had acquired.
    55 He also drove out the nations before them, Allotted them an inheritance by survey, And made the tribes of Israel dwell in their tents.
    56 Yet they tested and provoked the Most High God, And did not keep His testimonies,
    57 But turned back and acted unfaithfully like their fathers; They were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
    58 For they provoked Him to anger with their high places, And moved Him to jealousy with their carved images.
    59 When God heard this, He was furious, And greatly abhorred Israel,
    60 So that He forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, The tent He had placed among men,
    61 And delivered His strength into captivity, And His glory into the enemy's hand.
    62 He also gave His people over to the sword, And was furious with His inheritance.
    63 The fire consumed their young men, And their maidens were not given in marriage.
    64 Their priests fell by the sword, And their widows made no lamentation.
    65 Then the Lord awoke as from sleep, Like a mighty man who shouts because of wine.
    66 And He beat back His enemies; He put them to a perpetual reproach.
    67 Moreover He rejected the tent of Joseph, And did not choose the tribe of Ephraim,
    68 But chose the tribe of Judah, Mount Zion which He loved.
    69 And He built His sanctuary like the heights, Like the earth which He has established forever.
    70 He also chose David His servant, And took him from the sheepfolds;
    71 From following the ewes that had young He brought him, To shepherd Jacob His people, And Israel His inheritance.
    72 So he shepherded them according to the integrity of his heart, And guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.

    Proverbs 07

    1 My son, keep my words, And treasure my commands within you.
    2 Keep my commands and live, And my law as the apple of your eye.
    3 Bind them on your fingers; Write them on the tablet of your heart.
    4 Say to wisdom, "You are my sister," And call understanding your nearest kin,
    5 That they may keep you from the immoral woman, From the seductress who flatters with her words.
    6 For at the window of my house I looked through my lattice,
    7 And saw among the simple, I perceived among the youths, A young man devoid of understanding,
    8 Passing along the street near her corner; And he took the path to her house
    9 In the twilight, in the evening, In the black and dark night.
    10 And there a woman met him, With the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart.
    11 She was loud and rebellious, Her feet would not stay at home.
    12 At times she was outside, at times in the open square, Lurking at every corner.
    13 So she caught him and kissed him; With an impudent face she said to him:
    14 "I have peace offerings with me; Today I have paid my vows.
    15 So I came out to meet you, Diligently to seek your face, And I have found you.
    16 I have spread my bed with tapestry, Colored coverings of Egyptian linen.
    17 I have perfumed my bed With myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
    18 Come, let us take our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with love.
    19 For my husband is not at home; He has gone on a long journey;
    20 He has taken a bag of money with him, And will come home on the appointed day."
    21 With her enticing speech she caused him to yield, With her flattering lips she seduced him.
    22 Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks,
    23 Till an arrow struck his liver. As a bird hastens to the snare, He did not know it would cost his life.
    24 Now therefore, listen to me, my children; Pay attention to the words of my mouth:
    25 Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not stray into her paths;
    26 For she has cast down many wounded, And all who were slain by her were strong men.
    27 Her house is the way to hell, Descending to the chambers of death.
