John 13:1-38

1 Now before the feast of the Passover, Jesus, having seen that his hour has come that he would depart out of this world to his Father, having loved his own in the world, he loved them to the end. 2 And supper having occurred, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, that he would betray him, 3 Jesus, having seen that the Father has given all the things to him, into his hands, and that he came from God, and goes to God, 4 rises from supper, and set his garments aside, and after taking a towel, he girded himself. 5 Then he pours water into the wash-basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded. 6 So he comes to Simon Peter, and that man says to him, Lord, do thou wash my feet? 7 Jesus answered and said to him, What I do thou do not know now, but thou will understand after these things. 8 Peter says to him, Thou may, no, not wash my feet into the age. Jesus answered him, If I may not wash thee, thou have no part with me. 9 Simon Peter says to him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and head. 10 Jesus says to him, He who is bathed has no need to wash the feet either, but is entirely clean. And ye are clean, but not all. 11 For he knew the man betraying him. Because of this he said, Ye are not all clean. 12 When therefore he washed their feet, and took his garments, having sat down again, he said to them, Do ye understand what I have done to you? 13 Ye call me, Teacher, and, Lord. And ye say well, for I am. 14 If I then, the Lord and the teacher, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash each other's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, so that just as I have done to you ye also should do. 16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a bondman is not greater than his lord, nor is an apostle greater than he who sent him. 17 If ye have seen these things, blessed are ye if ye do them. 18 I speak not about you all. I have seen whom I chose, but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He who eats bread with me lifted up his heel against me. 19 From henceforth I tell you before it happens, so that when it happens, ye may believe that I am. 20 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who receives any man whomever I may send, receives me, and he who receives me receives him who sent me. 21 Having said these things, Jesus was troubled in the spirit, and testified and said, Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you will betray me. 22 Therefore the disciples looked at each other, being uncertain about whom he speaks. 23 And one of his disciples whom Jesus loved was sitting at Jesus' bosom. 24 Simon Peter therefore gestured to this man to inquire whoever he may be about whom he speaks. 25 And that man, having leaned thus toward Jesus' breast, says to him, Lord, who is he? 26 Jesus replies, He is that man to whom I, having dipped the morsel, will give. And when he dipped the morsel, he gives it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. 27 And after the morsel, then Satan entered into that man. Jesus therefore says to him, What thou do, do more quickly. 28 But no man who was sitting knew why he said this to him. 29 For some thought, since Judas had the purse, that Jesus said to him, Buy what things we have need of for the feast, or that he should give something to the poor. 30 Therefore having received the morsel, straightaway that man went out, and it was night. 31 When he went out, Jesus says, Now the Son of man is glorified, and God is glorified in him. 32 If God is glorify in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and he will glorify him straightaway. 33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye will seek me, and as I said to the Jews, Where I go, ye cannot come, I also now say to you. 34 A new commandment I give to you, that ye should love each other, just as I loved you, so that ye also should love each other. 35 By this all men will know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love among each other. 36 Simon Peter says to him, Lord, where do thou go? Jesus answered him, Where I go, thou cannot follow me now, but thou will follow me afterwards. 37 Peter said to him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thee. 38 Jesus answered him, Will thou lay down thy life for me? Truly, truly, I say to thee, A cock will, no, not sound, until thou will deny me thrice.

Behold, he who betrays me has come near. 47 And while he was still speaking, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs from the chief priest and elders of the people. 48 Now the man who betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomever I may kiss is he. Seize him. 49 And straightaway having come to Jesus, he said, Hail, Rabbi, and kissed him much. 50 And Jesus said to him, Friend, why are thou here. Then having come, they threw their hands on Jesus, and seized him.

Psalms 1:1-6

1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers, 2 but his delight is in the law of LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the streams of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also does not wither. And whatever he does shall prosper. 4 The wicked are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked shall perish.

Psalms 23:1-6

1 LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. 3 He restores my soul. He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, tho I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou are with me, thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. 5 Thou prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Thou have anointed my head with oil. My cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and loving kindness shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of LORD forever.

12 All things therefore, as many as ye may want that men should do to you, so also do ye to them, for this is the law and the prophets.

James 1:1-27

1 James, a bondman of God and of Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes in the Dispersion, greeting. 2 Consider it all joy, my brothers, when ye encounter various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 And let perseverance have a perfect work, so that ye may be perfect and complete, falling short in nothing. 5 And if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask from God who gives to all generously and not reproaching, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, doubting nothing, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven by wind and tossed about. 7 For that man should not think that he will receive anything from the Lord, 8 a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. 9 Now let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, 10 but the rich in his lowliness, because as a flower of grass he will pass away. 11 For the sun rose up with the burning heat, and withered the grass. And the flower of it fell, and the beauty of its appearance perished. So also the rich man will fade away among his pursuits. 12 Blessed is a man who endures temptation, because, having become approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to those who love him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted by God, for God is without temptation of evils, and he himself tempts no man. 14 But each man is tempted by his own lust, being drawn away and enticed. 15 Then the lust having conceived, it gives birth to sin, and after being complete the sin brings forth death. 16 Be not led astray, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect endowment is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation nor shadow of turning. 18 Having deliberated, he begot us by the word of truth for us to be a certain first fruit of his creatures. 19 Therefore, my beloved brothers, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. 20 For the wrath of man does not accomplish the righteousness of God. 21 Therefore having put off all filthiness and profusion of evil, receive with mildness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But become ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 Because if any man is a hearer of the word and not a doer, this resembles a man observing his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he observes himself, and goes away, and straightaway forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who stooped to look into the perfect law, the one of liberty, and who remained, this man, who did not become a forgetful hearer but a doer of work, this man will be blessed in his doing. 26 If any man among you seems to be religious, not bridling his tongue but deceiving his heart, this man's religion is futile. 27 Pure religion and undefiled from God and the Father is this, to go help the orphaned and the widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Mark 11:25

25 And whenever ye may stand praying, forgive, if ye have anything against any man, so that also your Father in the heavens will forgive you your trespasses.

48 But Jesus said to him, Judas, thou betray the Son of man with a kiss?

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally my brothers, be strong in Lord and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the full armor of God to enable you to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 Because our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principal offices, against the positions of authority, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against the spiritual things of wickedness in the he 13 Because of this take ye up the full armor of God, so that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand ye therefore having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet in preparation of the good-news of peace. 16 Above all having taken up the shield of faith, by which ye will be able to quench all the fiery darts of evil. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying through every prayer and entreaty at every time in spirit, and being alert in this same thing in all perseverance and entreaty for all the sanctified,

Matthew 6:14-15

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
