Exodus 2

1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took for a wife a daughter of Levi. 2 And the woman conceived and bore a son; and when she saw that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months. 3 And when she could no longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the reeds by the river's brink. 4 And his sister stood afar off to learn what would be done to him. 5 And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river, and her maidens walked along by the riverside; and when she saw the ark among the reeds, she sent her maid to fetch it. 6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child; and behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him and said, "This is one of the Hebrews' children." 7 Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, "Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?" 8 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Go." And the maid went and called the child's mother. 9 And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, "Take this child away and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages." And the woman took the child, and nursed it. 10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses [that is, Drawn out], and she said, "Because I drew him out of the water."

11 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren and looked on their burdens; and he spied an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren. 12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. 13 And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together; and he said to him that did the wrong, "Why smitest thou thy fellow?" 14 And he said, "Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? Intendest thou to kill me as thou killed the Egyptian?" And Moses feared and said, "Surely this thing is known."

15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian; and he sat down by a well. 16 Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters; and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock. 17 And the shepherds came and drove them away; but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock. 18 And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, "How is it that ye have come so soon today?" 19 And they said, "An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us and watered the flock." 20 And he said unto his daughters, "And where is he? Why is it that ye have left the man? Call him, that he may eat bread." 21 And Moses was content to dwell with the man; and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter. 22 And she bore him a son, and he called his name Gershom [that is, A stranger there]; for he said, "I have been a stranger in a strange land."

Psalm 69:1-14, 29-33

1 My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?
Why art Thou so far from helping Me, and from the words of My groaning?
2 O My God, I cry in the daytime, but Thou hearest not;
and in the night season I am not silent.
3 But Thou art holy,
O Thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
4 Our fathers trusted in Thee;
they trusted, and Thou didst deliver them.
5 They cried unto Thee and were delivered;
they trusted in Thee and were not confounded.
6 But I am a worm and no man,
a reproach of men and despised by the people
7 All they that see Me laugh Me to scorn;
they shoot out their lip, they shake their head, saying,
8 "He trusted in the LORD that He would deliver him;
let Him deliver him, seeing He delighted in him!"

9 But Thou art He that took Me out of the womb;
Thou didst make Me hope when I was upon My mother's breasts.
10 I was cast upon Thee from the womb;
Thou art My God from My mother's belly.
11 Be not far from Me, for trouble is near;
for there is none to help.

12 Many bulls have compassed Me about;
strong bulls of Bashan have beset Me round.
13 They gaped at Me with their mouths,
as a ravening and a roaring lion.

14 I am poured out like water, and all My bones are out of joint;
My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of My body.

29 But I am poor and sorrowful;
let Thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.
30 I will praise the name of God with a song,
and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.
31 This also shall please the LORD better than an ox
or a bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
32 The humble shall see this and be glad,
and your heart shall live, that seek God.
33 For the LORD heareth the poor,
and despiseth not His prisoners.

Words of Worship - Psalm 95:8

"Harden not your heart as in the provocation,
and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness

Matthew 11:20-24

20 Then He began to upbraid the cities wherein most of His mighty works were done, because they repented not.

21 "Woe unto thee, Chorazin! Woe unto thee, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the Day of Judgment than for you. 23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell; for if the mighty works which have been done in thee had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the Day of Judgment than for thee."

Words of Wisdom - Wisdom of Solomon 4:7, 10, 14, 16a

But though the righteous dies untimely, 
yet shall he be at rest. 
He pleased God and was beloved by Him, 
so that, living amongst sinners, he was translated.
For his soul pleased the Lord; 
therefore hastened He to take him away from among the wicked.
Thus the righteous that is dead shall condemn the ungodly who are living; 

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 7:7-8

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
