According to the Christian Seasons
29 Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah,
and he passed over Gilead and Manasseh, and passed over Mizpah of
Gilead; and from Mizpah of Gilead he passed over unto the children of
Ammon. 30 And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said,
"If Thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine
hands, 31 then it shall be that whatsoever cometh forth from the
doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children
of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD'S, and I will offer it up for a burnt
offering." 32 So Jephthah passed over unto the children of
Ammon to fight against them, and the LORD delivered them into his hands.
33 And he smote them from Aroer even till thou come to Minnith,
even twenty cities, and unto the plain of the vineyards with a very
great slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon were subdued before the
children of Israel.
34 And Jephthah came to Mizpah unto his house, and
behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances;
and she was his only child. Besides her he had neither son nor daughter.
35 And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes
and said, "Alas, my daughter! Thou hast brought me very low, and
thou art one of them that trouble me; for I have opened my mouth unto
the LORD, and I cannot go back." 36 And she said unto him,
"My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the LORD, do to me
according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth, forasmuch as
the LORD hath taken vengeance for thee on thine enemies, even of the
children of Ammon." 37 And she said unto her father, "Let
this thing be done for me: let me alone two months, that I may go up and
down upon the mountains and bewail my virginity, I and my fellows."
38 And he said, "Go." And he sent her away for two
months; and she went with her companions, and bewailed her virginity
upon the mountains. 39 And it came to pass at the end of two months
that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow
which he had vowed; and she knew no man.
1 I waited patiently for the LORD;
and He inclined unto me and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock and established my goings.
3 And He hath put a new song in my mouth; even praise unto our God;
many shall see it and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his
and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5 Many, O LORD my God, are Thy wonderful works which Thou hast done;
and Thy thoughts which are directed toward us, they cannot be
reckoned up in order unto Thee.
If I would declare and speak of them,
they are more than can be numbered.
6 Sacrifice and offering Thou didst not desire; mine ears hast Thou
burnt offering and sin offering hast Thou not required.
7 Then said I, "Lo, I come: in the volume of
the book it is written of me:
8 I delight to do Thy will, O my God; yea, Thy law is within my
9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation;
lo, I have not restrained my lips, O LORD, Thou knowest.
10 I have not hid Thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared
Thy faithfulness and Thy salvation;
I have not concealed Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth from the great
11 Withhold not Thou Thy tender mercies from me, O
let Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth continually preserve me.
Words of Worship - Psalm
"Harden not your heart as in the provocation,
and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness
1 And Jesus answered and spoke unto them again in
parables and said,
2 "The Kingdom of
Heaven is like unto a certain king, who made a marriage for his son. 3 And he
sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding, and they
would not come. 4 Again he sent forth other servants, saying, 'Tell them that
are bidden, "Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fatlings
are killed, and all things are ready. Come unto the marriage."' 5 But
they made light of it and went their ways, one to his farm, and another to his
merchandise, 6 and the remnant took his servants and treated them spitefully
and slew them. 7 But when the king heard thereof he was wroth, and he sent
forth his armies and destroyed those murderers and burned up their city. 8
Then said he to his servants, 'The wedding is ready, but they that were bidden
were not worthy. 9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall
find, bid to the marriage.' 10 So those servants went out into the highways,
and gathered all together as many as they found, both bad and good, and the
wedding was furnished with guests.
11 And when the king
came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who did not have on a wedding
garment. 12 And he said unto him, 'Friend, how camest thou in hither not
having a wedding garment?' And he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the
servants, 'Bind him hand and foot and take him away, and cast him into outer
darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' 14 For many are
called, but few are chosen."
Words of Wisdom - Wisdom of Solomon 12:10
but, executing Thy judgments upon them little by little, Thou
gavest them room for repentance, not being ignorant that they were an evil
generation, and that their malice was bred in them, and that their cogitation
would never be changed.
Morals & Values - Matthew 20:15b-16
Is thine eye
evil, because I am good?' 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last.
For many are called, but few are chosen."
