Judges 2:7-23

7 And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD that He did for Israel.

8 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being a hundred and ten years old. 9 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathheres, in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill Gaash. 10 And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers, and there arose another generation after them who knew not the LORD nor yet the works which He had done for Israel.

11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served the Baalim. 12 And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, the gods of the people who were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD to anger. 13 And they forsook the LORD and served Baal and Ashtaroth. 14 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and He delivered them into the hands of despoilers who despoiled them, and He sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies. 15 Whithersoever they went out, the hand of the LORD was against them for evil, as the LORD had said, and as the LORD had sworn unto them; and they were greatly distressed.

16 Nevertheless the LORD raised up judges, who delivered them out of the hand of those who despoiled them. 17 And yet they would not hearken unto their judges, but they went a whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves unto them. They turned quickly out of the way which their fathers walked in, obeying the commandments of the LORD; but they did not so. 18 And when the LORD raised them up judges, then the LORD was with the judge and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge; for the LORD was moved to repent because of their groanings by reason of those who oppressed them and vexed them. 19 And it came to pass, when the judge was dead, that they returned and corrupted themselves more than their fathers in following other gods, to serve them and to bow down unto them. They ceased not from their own doings nor from their stubborn way.

20 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and He said, "Because this people hath transgressed My covenant which I commanded their fathers, and have not hearkened unto My voice, 21 I also will not henceforth drive out any from before them of the nations which Joshua left when he died, 22 that through them I may test Israel, whether they will keep the way of the LORD to walk therein, as their fathers did keep it, or not." 23 Therefore the LORD left those nations without driving them out hastily, neither delivered He them into the hand of Joshua.

Psalm 106:34-45

34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them;
35 but they mingled among the heathen and learned their works,
36 and they served their idols,
which were a snare unto them.
37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and daughters unto devils,
38 and shed innocent blood,
even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan;
and the land was polluted with blood.
39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own schemes.
40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against His people,
insomuch that He abhorred His own inheritance.
41 And He gave them into the hand of the heathen,
and they that hated them ruled over them.
42 Their enemies also oppressed them,
and they were brought into subjection under their hand.
43 Many times did He deliver them,
but they provoked Him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.
44 Nevertheless He regarded their affliction when He heard their cry,
45 and He remembered for them His covenant, and repented according to the multitude of His mercies.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

Matthew 19:16-22

16 And behold, one came and said unto Him, "Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" 17 And He said unto him,

"Why callest thou Me good? There is none good but One, that is, God. But if thou wilt enter into Life, keep the commandments."

18 He said unto Him, "Which?" Jesus said,

"'Thou shalt do no murder; thou shalt not commit adultery; thou shalt not steal; thou shalt not bear false witness; 19 honor thy father and thy mother; and, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.'"

20 The young man said unto Him, "All these things have I kept from my youth up. What lack I yet?" 21 Jesus said unto him,

"If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell what thou hast and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in Heaven; and come and follow Me."

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
