And behold, there were very many on the face of the plain, and very dry. 3 And He said to me, Son of man, will these bones live? And I said, O Lord God, only You know this! 4 And He said to me, Prophesy upon these bones, and you shall say to them, You dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. 5 Thus says the Lord to these bones: Behold, I will bring upon you the breath of life; 6 and I will lay sinews upon you, and I will bring up flesh upon you, and spread skin upon you, and I will put My Spirit into you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the Lord. 7 So I prophesied as the Lord commanded me. And it came to pass while I was prophesying, that behold, there was a rattling, and the bones approached each one to his joint. 8 And I looked, and behold, sinews and flesh grew upon them, and skin came upon them above. But there was not breath in them. 9 And He said to me, Prophesy to the wind; prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus says the Lord: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these dead, that they may live. 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath entered into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, a very great congregation.

13 Rejoice, you heavens; and let the earth be glad; let the mountains break forth with joy; for the Lord has had mercy on His people, and has comforted the lowly ones of His people. 14 But Zion said, The Lord has forsaken me, and, The Lord has forgotten me. 15 Will a woman forget her child, so as not to have compassion upon the offspring of her womb? But if a woman should even forget these, yet I will not forget you, says the Lord. 16 Behold, I have painted your walls on My hands, and you are continually before Me. 17 And you shall soon be built by those by whom you were destroyed, and they that made you desolate shall go forth from you. 18 Lift up your eyes round about, and look on them all; behold, they are gathered together, and have come to you. As I live, says the Lord, you shall clothe yourself with them all as with an ornament, and put them on, as a bride in her attire. 19 For your deserted and marred and ruined places shall now be too narrow by reason of the inhabitants, and they that devoured you shall be removed far from you. 20 For your sons whom you have lost shall say in your ears, The place is too narrow for me; make room for me that I may dwell. 21 And you shall say in your heart, Who has begotten me these? Whereas I was childless, and a widow; but who has brought up these for me? And I was left alone; but from where did these come to me? 22 Thus says the Lord, even the Lord, Behold, I lift up My hand to the nations, and I will lift up My signal to the islands; and they shall bring your sons in their bosom, and shall bear your daughters on their shoulders. 23 And kings shall be your nursing fathers, and their princesses your nurses, they shall bow down to you on the face of the earth, and shall lick up the dust of your feet; and you shall know that I am the Lord, and they that wait on Me shall not be ashamed.

Isaiah 2:1-22

1 The word which came to Isaiah the son of Amoz concerning Judah, and concerning Jerusalem. 2 For in the last days the mountain of the Lord shall be glorious, and the house of God shall be on the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall come to it. 3 And many nations shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will tell us His way, and we will walk in it; for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord out of Jerusalem. 4 And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into sickles; and nation shall not take up sword against nation, neither shall they learn to war anymore. 5 And now, O house of Jacob, come, and let us walk in the light of the Lord. 6 For He has forsaken His people the house of Israel, because their land is filled as at the beginning with divinations, as the land of the Philistines, and many strange children were born to them. 7 For their land is filled with silver and gold, and there was no number of their treasures; their land also is filled with horses, and there was no number of chariots. 8 And the land is filled with abominations, even the works of their hands; and they have worshipped the works which their fingers made. 9 And the mean man bowed down, and the great man was humbled; and I will not pardon them. 10 Now therefore enter into the rocks, and hide yourselves in the earth, for fear of the Lord, and by reason of the glory of His might, when He shall arise to strike mightily the earth. 11 For the eyes of the Lord are high, but man is low; and the haughtiness of men shall be brought low, and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. 12 For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon everyone that is proud and haughty, and upon everyone that is high and lifted up, and they shall be brought down; 13 and upon every cedar of Lebanon, of them that are high and lifted up, and upon every oak of Bashan, 14 and upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, 15 and upon every high tower, and upon every high wall, 16 and upon every ship of the sea, and upon every display of fine ships. 17 And every man shall be brought low, and the pride of men shall fall; and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. 18 And they shall hide all idols made with hands, 19 having carried them into the caves, and into the clefts of the rocks, and into the caverns of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and by reason of the glory of His might, when He shall arise to strike mightily the earth. 20 For in that day a man shall cast forth his silver and gold abominations, which they made, in order to worship vanities and bats; 21 to enter into the caverns of the solid rock, and into the clefts of the rocks, for fear of the Lord, and by reason of the glory of His might, when He shall arise to strike mightily the earth. 22 (TEXT OMITTED)

Luke 16:19-31

19 "Now there was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen, enjoying himself splendidly every day. 20 But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores, who had been placed at his gate, 21 and longing to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table. And even the dogs came and would lick his sores. 22 And it came to pass that the beggar died, and he was carried away by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham from afar, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 Then he cried and said, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am suffering in this flame.' 25 But Abraham said, 'Child, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things, but now here he is comforted and you are suffering. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great gulf has been fixed, so that those who desire to cross over from here to you are not able, nor may those from there cross over to us.' 27 Then he said, 'Therefore I beseech you, father, that you would send him to my father's house, 28 for I have five brothers, so that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.' 29 Abraham said to him, 'They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.' 30 And he said, 'No, father Abraham; but if someone from the dead should go to them, they will repent.' 31 But he said to him, 'If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded should one rise from the dead.' "

Psalms 51:1-19

1 For the end, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him, when he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your great mercy; and according to the multitude of Your compassions, blot out my transgression. 2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I am conscious of my iniquity; and my sin is continually before me. 4 Against You alone have I sinned, and done evil before You; that You might be justified in Your words, and might overcome when You are judged. 5 For behold, I was conceived in iniquities, and in sins did my mother conceive me. 6 For behold, You love truth; You have manifested to me the secret and hidden things of Your wisdom. 7 You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be purified; You shall wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow. 8 You shall cause me to hear gladness and joy; my afflicted bones shall rejoice. 9 Turn away Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a steadfast spirit in my inward parts. 11 Cast me not away from Your presence; and remove not Your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation; establish me with Your directing Spirit. 13 Then will I teach transgressors Your ways; and ungodly men shall turn to You. 14 Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation; and my tongue shall joyfully declare Your righteousness. 15 O Lord, You shall open my lips; and my mouth shall declare Your praise. 16 For if You desired sacrifice, I would have given it; You will not take pleasure in whole burnt offerings. 17 Sacrifice to God is a broken spirit; a broken and humbled heart God will not despise. 18 Do good, O Lord, to Zion in Your good pleasure; and let the walls of Jerusalem be built. 19 Then shall You be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness, offering, and whole burnt sacrifices; then shall they offer calves upon Your altar.

Psalms 51:7

7 You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be purified; You shall wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow.

Psalms 23:1-6

1 A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 In a place of green grass, there He has made me dwell; He has nourished me by the water of rest. 3 He has restored my soul; He has guided me into the paths of righteousness, for His name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You have prepared a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; and Your cup cheers me like the best wine. 6 Your mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Joel 2:22-26

22 Be of good courage, you beasts of the plain, for the plains of the wilderness have budded, for the trees have borne their fruit, the fig tree and the vine have yielded their strength. 23 Rejoice then and be glad, you children of Zion, in the Lord your God; for He has given you food fully, and He will rain on you the early and the latter rain, as before. 24 And the floors shall be filled with wheat, and the presses shall overflow with wine and oil. 25 And I will recompense you for the years which the locust, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, and the cankerworm have eaten, even My great army, which I sent against you. 26 And you shall eat abundantly, and be satisfied, and shall praise the name of the Lord your God for the things which He has wrought wonderfully with you, and My people shall not be put to shame.

Psalms 71:20-21

Jeremiah 30:1-24

1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 2 Thus says the Lord God of Israel: Write all the words which I have spoken to you in a book. 3 For behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will bring back the captivity of My people Israel and Judah; and I will bring them back to the land which I gave to their fathers, and they shall be masters over it, says the Lord. 4 And these are the words which the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah: 5 Thus said the Lord: You shall hear a sound of fear — fear, and not peace. 6 Ask, and see if a male has ever born a child? And ask concerning the fear, why they shall hold their loins, and look for safety; for I have seen every man, and his hands are on his loins; their faces are turned to paleness. 7 For that day is great, and there is none like it; and it is a time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. 8 In that day, said the Lord, I will break the yoke off their neck, and will burst their bonds, and they shall no longer serve strangers. 9 But they shall serve the Lord their God; and I will raise up to them David their king. 10 (TEXT OMITTED) 11 (TEXT OMITTED) 12 Thus says the Lord: I have brought on you destruction. Your stroke is painful. 13 There is none to judge your cause; you have been painfully treated for healing, there is no help for you. 14 All your friends have forgotten you; they shall not ask about you at all, for I have smitten you with the stroke of the enemy, even severe correction. Your sins have abounded above all your iniquity. 15 Your sins have abounded beyond the multitude of your iniquities, therefore they have done these things to you. 16 Therefore all that devour you shall be eaten, and all your enemies shall eat all their own flesh. And they that spoil you shall become a spoil, and I will give up to be plundered all that have plundered you. 17 For I will bring about your healing, I will heal you of your grievous wound, says the Lord; for you are called Dispersed: she is your prey, for no one seeks after her. 18 Thus said the Lord: Behold, I will turn the captivity of Jacob, and will have pity upon his prisoners; and the city shall be built upon her hill, and the people shall settle after their manner. 19 And there shall go forth from them singers, even the sound of men making merry, and I will multiply them, and they shall by no means be diminished. 20 And their sons shall go in as before, and their testimonies shall be established before Me, and I will visit those that afflict them. 21 And their mighty ones shall be over them, and their prince shall proceed of themselves; and I will gather them, and they shall return to Me; for who is this that has set his heart to return to Me? Says the Lord. 22 (TEXT OMITTED) 23 For the wrathful anger of the Lord has gone forth, even a whirlwind of anger has gone forth: it shall come upon the ungodly. 24 The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return, until He shall execute it, and until He shall establish the purpose of His heart. In the latter days you shall know these things.

Revelation 21:1-5

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. And there was no more sea. 2 Then I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, having been prepared like a bride having been adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He shall dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them. 4 And He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying out; neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things have passed away." 5 Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." And He said to me, "Write, for these words are faithful and true."

Isaiah 42:1-25

1 Jacob is My servant, I will help him; Israel is My elect, My soul has accepted him; I have put My Spirit upon him; he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. 2 He shall not cry, nor lift up his voice, nor shall his voice be heard without. 3 A bruised reed he shall not break, and smoking flax he shall not quench; but he shall bring forth judgment to truth. 4 He shall shine out, and shall not be discouraged, until he has set judgment on the earth; and in his name shall the Gentiles trust. 5 Thus says the Lord God, who made the heaven, and established it; who settled the earth, and the things in it, and gives breath to the people in it, and spirit to them that tread on it; 6 I, the Lord God, have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand, and will strengthen you; and I have given you for the covenant of a race, for a light of the Gentiles; 7 to open the eyes of the blind, to bring the bound and them that sit in darkness out of bonds and the prison house. 8 I am the Lord God; that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, nor My praises to graven images. 9 Behold, the ancient things have come to pass, and so will the new things which I tell you; yes, before I declare them they are made known to you. 10 Sing a new hymn to the Lord; you who are His dominion, glorify His name from the ends of the earth; you that go down to the sea, and sail upon it; the islands, and they that dwell in them. 11 Rejoice, you wilderness, and the villages thereof, the hamlets, and the dwellers in Kedar; the inhabitants of the rock shall rejoice, they shall shout from the top of the mountains. 12 They shall give glory to God, and shall proclaim His praises in the islands. 13 The Lord God of hosts shall go forth, and crush the war; He shall stir up jealousy, and shall shout mightily against His enemies. 14 I have been silent; shall I also always be silent and forbear; I have endured like a travailing woman; I will now amaze and wither at once. 15 I will make desolate mountains and hills, and will dry up all their grass; and I will make the rivers islands, and dry up the pools. 16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not, and I will cause them to tread paths which they have not known; I will turn darkness into light for them, and crooked things into straight. These things will I do, and will not forsake them. 17 But they are turned back; be utterly ashamed, you that trust in graven images, who say to the molten images, You are our gods. 18 Hear, you deaf, and look up, you blind, to see. 19 And who is blind, but My servants? And who is deaf, but those that rule over them? Yes, the servants of God have been made blind. 20 You have often seen, and have not taken heed; your ears have been opened, and you have not heard. 21 The Lord God has taken counsel that He might be justified, and might magnify His praise. 22 And I beheld, and the people were spoiled and plundered; for there is a snare in the secret chambers everywhere, and in the houses also, where they have hidden them; they became a spoil, and there was no one that delivered the prey, and there was none who said, Restore. 23 Who is there among you that will give ear to these things? Hearken to the things which are coming to pass. 24 For what did He give Jacob up to spoil, and Israel to them that plundered him? Did not God do it against whom they sinned? And they would not walk in His ways, nor hearken to His law. 25 So He brought upon them the fury of His wrath; and the war, and those that burned round about them, prevailed against them; yet none of them knew it, neither did they take it to heart.

Job 42:10

10 And the Lord prospered Job. And when he prayed also for his friends, He forgave them their sin: and the Lord gave Job twice as much, even double of what he had before.
