Numbers 13:1-2, 25-33
1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 2 "Send thou
men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the
children of Israel. Of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man,
every one a ruler among them."
25 And they returned from searching of the land after
forty days. 26 And they went and came to Moses and to Aaron and to all
the congregation of the children of Israel unto the Wilderness of Paran
to Kadesh, and brought back word unto them and unto all the
congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land. 27 And they told
him, and said, "We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and
surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.
28 Nevertheless the people are strong who dwell in the land, and the
cities are walled and very great; and moreover we saw the children of
Anak there. 29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the South; and the
Hittites and the Jebusites and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and
the Canaanites dwell by the sea and by the coast of the Jordan."
30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said,
"Let us go up at once and possess it, for we are well able to overcome
it." 31 But the men who went up with him said, "We are not able to go up
against the people, for they are stronger than we." 32 And they brought
up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children
of Israel, saying, "The land, through which we have gone to search it,
is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof, and all the people
that we saw in it are men of a great stature. 33 And there we saw the
giants, the sons of Anak, who come of the giants. And we were in our own
sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."
Numbers 14:1, 26-29a, 34-35
1 And all the congregation lifted up their voice and
cried, and the people wept that night.
26 And the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
27 "How long shall I bear with this evil congregation who murmur against
Me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they
murmur against Me. 28 Say unto them, `As truly as I live, saith the
LORD, as ye have spoken in Mine ears, so will I do to you. 29 Your
carcasses shall fall in this wilderness;
34 After the number of the days in which ye searched the
land, even forty days, for each day a year, shall ye bear your
iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know My altering of My
purpose. 35 I, the LORD, have said: I will surely do it unto all this
evil congregation who are gathered together against Me. In this
wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.'"
1 Praise ye the LORD! O give thanks unto the LORD,
for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.
2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD?
Who can show forth all His praise?
3 Blessed are they that keep judgment
and he that doeth righteousness at all times.
4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favor which Thou bearest
unto Thy people;
O visit me with Thy salvation,
5 that I may see the good of Thy chosen,
that I may rejoice in the gladness of Thy nation,
that I may glory with Thine inheritance.
6 We have sinned with our fathers,
we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.
7 Our fathers understood not Thy wonders in Egypt;
they remembered not the multitude of Thy mercies, but provoked Thee at
the sea, even at the Red Sea.
8 Nevertheless He saved them for His name's sake,
that He might make His mighty power to be known.
9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up;
so He led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.
10 And He saved them from the hand of him that hated them,
and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
11 And the waters covered their enemies; there was not one of them
12 Then believed they His words; they sang His praise.
13 They soon forgot His works; they waited not for His
14 but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the

21 They forgot God their Savior,
who had done great things in Egypt,
22 wondrous works in the land of Ham,
and fearsome things by the Red Sea.
23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them, had not Moses His
chosen stood before Him in the breach,
to turn away His wrath, lest He should destroy them.
Words of Worship - Luke 7:16b
"A great prophet is risen up among us"; and, "God hath
visited His people."
21 Then Jesus went thence and departed into the
region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same
region and cried unto Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Thou Son of
David! My daughter is grievously vexed with a devil." 23 But He answered
her not a word. And His disciples came and besought Him, saying, "Send her
away, for she crieth after us." 24 But He answered and said,
"I am not sent but
unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying,
"Lord help me." 26 But He answered and said,
"It is not meet to
take children's bread and cast it to dogs."
27 And she said, "Truth, Lord; yet the dogs
eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table." 28 Then Jesus
answered and said unto her,
"O woman, great is
thy faith. Be it unto thee even as thou wilt."
And her daughter was made whole from that very
Words of Wisdom - Wisdom
of Solomon 9:1-4
"O God of my fathers and Lord of mercy,
who hast made all things with Thy word,
and ordained man through Thy wisdom,
that he should have dominion over the creatures which Thou hast made,
and order the world according to equity and righteousness,
and execute judgment with an upright heart,
give me wisdom that sitteth by Thy throne,
and reject me not from among Thy children.
Morals & Values - Matthew 13:24-30
parable put He forth before them, saying, "The Kingdom of Heaven is
likened unto a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men
slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his
way. But when the blades had sprung up and brought forth fruit, then
appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and
said unto him, `Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From
whence then hath come the tares?' He said unto them, `An enemy hath
done this.' The servants said unto him, `Wilt thou then have us go
and gather them up?' But he said, `Nay, lest while ye gather up the
tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together
until the harvest, and in the time of harvest I will say to the
reapers, "Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in
bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn."'"
