19 And the temple of God was opened in Heaven; and there was
seen in His temple the ark of His testament, and there were lightnings and
voices, and thunderings and an earthquake, and great hail.
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: a woman clothed
with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve
stars. 2 And she, being with child, cried, travailing in birth and in pain to be
delivered. 3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven: behold, a great red
dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And
his tail drew a third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth.
And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered to devour
her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a manchild, who was to
rule all nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up unto God and to
His throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place
prepared by God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and
7 And there was war in Heaven: Michael and his angels fought
against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 and prevailed not;
neither was their place found any more in Heaven. 9 And the great dragon was
cast out -- that serpent of old called the Devil and Satan, who deceiveth the
whole world. He was cast out onto the earth, and his angels were cast out with
him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven,
"Now have come salvation and strength, and the Kingdom
of our God,
and the power of His Christ;
for the accuser of our brethren is cast down,
who accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their
and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens,
and ye that dwell in them!
Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil has come
down unto you, having great wrath,
because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."
1 My heart is composing a goodly matter; I speak of
the verses which I have made concerning the King;
my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2 Thou art fairer than the children of men; grace is
poured into Thy lips;
therefore God hath blessed Thee for ever.
3 Gird Thy sword upon Thy thigh, O most Mighty,
with Thy glory and Thy majesty.
4 And in Thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness
and Thy right hand shall teach Thee fearsome things.
5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the King's enemies,
whereby the people fall under Thee.
6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever;
the scepter of Thy Kingdom is a righteous scepter.
7 Thou lovest righteousness and hatest wickedness;
therefore God, Thy God, hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness
above Thy fellows.
8 All Thy garments smell of myrrh and aloes and cassia,
out of the ivory palaces whereby they have made Thee glad.
9 Kings' daughters were among Thy honorable women;
at Thy right hand stood the queen in gold of Ophir.
10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider and incline
forget also thine own people and thy father's house.
11 So shall the King greatly desire thy beauty,
for He is thy Lord; worship thou Him.
12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift;
even the rich among the people shall entreat thy favor.
13 The King's daughter is all glorious within;
her clothing is of wrought gold.
14 She shall be brought unto the King in raiment of needlework;
the virgins, her companions that follow her, shall be brought unto
15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought;
they shall enter into the King's palace.
16 Instead of Thy fathers shall be Thy children,
whom Thou mayest make princes in all the earth.
17 I will make Thy name to be remembered in all generations;
therefore shall the people praise Thee for ever and ever.
1 Corinthians 15:20-34
20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and become the
firstfruits of those who slept. 21 For since by man came death, by Man came also
the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall
all be made alive; 23 but every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits;
afterward those who are Christ's at His coming. 24 Then cometh the end when He
shall have delivered up the Kingdom to God, even the Father, when He shall have
put down all rule, and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign until He
hath put all enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed
is death, 27 for "He hath put all things under His feet." But when He
saith "all things" are put under Him, it is manifest that He is
excepted, who did put all things under Him. 28 And when all things shall be
subdued unto Him, then shall the Son Himself also be subject unto Him who put
all things under Him, that God may be all in all.
29 Else, what shall they do who are baptized for the dead, if
the dead rise not at all? Why are they then baptized for the dead? 30 And why
stand we in jeopardy every hour? 31 I declare by my rejoicing in you which I
have in Christ Jesus our Lord: I die daily. 32 If after the manner of men I have
fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is there to me, if the dead rise
not? "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!" 33 Be not deceived:
"Evil associations corrupt good manners." 34 Awake to righteousness,
and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.
39 And Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country
with haste, into a city of Judah, 40 and entered into the house of Zacharias and
saluted Elizabeth. 41 And it came to pass, when Elizabeth heard the salutation
of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the
Holy Ghost. 42 And she spoke out with a loud voice and said, "Blessed art
thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. 43 And why is it granted
to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For lo, as soon as the
voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for
joy. 45 And blessed is she that believed; for there shall be a fulfillment of
those things which were told her from the Lord." 46 And Mary said,
"My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47 and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.
48 For He hath regarded the low estate of His handmaiden;
for behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
49 For He that is mighty hath done to me great things,
and holy is His name.
50 And His mercy is on them that fear Him,
from generation to generation.
51 He hath shown strength with His arm;
He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats,
and exalted them of low degree.
53 He hath filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He hath sent empty away.
54 He hath helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy,
55 as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever."
56 And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to
her own house.
Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 31:28-29
Wine measurably drunk and in season bringeth gladness of the heart and
cheerfulness of the mind,
but wine drunken with excess maketh bitterness of the mind with brawling and
Morals & Values - Matthew 18:23-35
is the Kingdom of Heaven likened unto a certain king who would
settle accounts with his servants. And when he had begun to reckon,
one was brought unto him who owed him ten thousand talents. But
inasmuch as he could not pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and
his wife and children and all that he had, and payment to be made.
The servant therefore fell down and did homage to him, saying,
`Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.' Then the
lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him and
forgave him the debt. But the same servant went out and found one of
his fellow servants who owed him a hundred pence. And he laid hands
on him, and took him by the throat, saying, `Pay me what thou owest.' And his fellow servant
fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, `Have patience with me, and I
will pay thee all.' And he would not, but went and cast him into prison
till he should pay the debt. So when his fellow servants saw what was done,
they were very sorry and came and told unto their lord all that was done.
Then his lord, after he had called him, said unto him, `O thou wicked servant,
I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me. Shouldest not thou
also have had compassion on thy fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee?'
And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors till he should
pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall My heavenly Father do also
unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother's
