Isaiah 25:1-10a

1 O LORD, Thou art my God.
I will exalt Thee, I will praise Thy name,
for Thou hast done wonderful things;
Thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
2 For Thou hast made of a city a heap,
of a fortified city a ruin,
a palace of strangers to be no city;
it shall never be rebuilt.
3 Therefore shall the strong people glorify Thee;
the city of the terrible nations shall fear Thee.
4 For Thou hast been a strength to the poor,
a strength to the needy in his distress,
a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
5 Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers,
as the heat in a dry place,
even the heat with the shadow of a cloud;
the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.

6 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things,
a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
7 And He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people,
and the veil that is spread over all nations.
8 He will swallow up death in victory;
and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces,
and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the earth;
for the LORD hath spoken it.

9 And it shall be said in that day: "Lo, this is our God;
we have waited for Him, and He will save us.
This is the LORD; we have waited for Him;
we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation."
10 For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest,

Psalm 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul;
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil;
for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Matthew 15:29-38

29 And Jesus departed from thence and came nigh unto the Sea of Galilee, and went up onto a mountain and sat down there. 30 And great multitudes came unto Him, having with them those who were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet, and He healed them, 31 insomuch that the multitude wondered when they saw the dumb to speak, and the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see. And they glorified the God of Israel.

32 Then Jesus called His disciples unto Him and said,

"I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with Me now three days and have had nothing to eat; and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint on the way."

33 And His disciples said unto Him, "From whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness as to fill so great a multitude?" 34 And Jesus said unto them,

"How many loaves have ye?"

And they said, "Seven, and a few little fishes." 35 And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 36 And He took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and broke them and gave to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37 And they all ate and were filled. And they took up of the broken pieces that were left, seven baskets full. 38 And those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 1:8-9

My son, hear the instruction of thy father,
and forsake not the law of thy mother;
for they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head,
and chains about thy neck.
