John 13:1-38

1 Now before the feast of Passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour had come that he would depart from this world to the Father, and* having loved his* own in the world, loved them to the end. 2 And as* a dinner was taking place, when* the devil had already put into the heart of Judas son of Simon Iscariot that he should betray him, 3 because he* knew that the Father had given him all things into his* hands, and that he had come forth from God and was going away to God, 4 he got up from the dinner and took off his* outer clothing, and taking a towel, tied it* around himself. 5 Then he poured water into the washbasin and began to wash the feet of the disciples, and to wipe them* dry with the towel which he had tied around himself.* 6 Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?" 7 Jesus answered and said to him, "What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will understand after these things." 8 Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet forever!"* Jesus replied to him, "Unless I wash you, you do not have a share with me." 9 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, not my feet only, but also my* hands and my* head!" 10 Jesus said to him, "The one who has bathed only needs* to wash his* feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not all of you." 11 (For he knew the one who would betray him; because of this he said, "Not all of you are clean.") 12 So when he had washed their feet and taken his outer clothing and reclined at table again, he said to them, "Do you understand what I have done for you? 13 You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and you speak correctly, for I am. 14 If then I—your* Lord and Teacher—wash your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that just as I have done for you, you also do. 16 Truly, truly I say to you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 If you understand these things, you are blessed if you do them. 18 "I am not speaking about all of you. I know whom I have chosen, but in order that the scripture would be fulfilled, 'The one who eats my bread has lifted up his heel against me.'* 19 From now on I am telling you before it happens, in order that when it happens you may believe that I am he.* 20 Truly, truly I say to you, the one who receives anyone I send receives me, and the one who receives me receives the one who sent me." 21 When he* had said these things, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified and said, "Truly, truly I say to you that one of you will betray me." 22 The disciples began looking* at one another, uncertain about whom he was speaking. 23 One of his disciples—the one whom Jesus loved—was reclining close beside* Jesus. 24 So Simon Peter gestured for this one to inquire who it was about whom he was speaking. 25 He leaned back* accordingly against Jesus' chest and* said to him, "Lord, who is it?" 26 Jesus replied, "It is he to whom I dip the piece of bread and give it* to him." Then after* dipping the piece of bread, he gave it** to Judas son of Simon Iscariot. 27 And after the piece of bread, then Satan entered into him. Then Jesus said to him, "What you are doing, do quickly!" 28 (Now no one of those reclining at table knew for what reason he said this to him. 29 For some were thinking because Judas had the money box, Jesus was telling him, "Purchase what we need* for the feast," or that he should give something to the poor.) 30 So after he* had taken the piece of bread, he went out immediately. And it was night. 31 Then, when he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in him. 32 If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and will glorify him immediately. 33 Children, yet a little time I am with you. You will seek me and just as I said to the Jews, "Where I am going you cannot come," now I say also to you. 34 "A new commandment I give to you: that you love one another—just as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples—if you have love for one another." 36 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, where are you going?" Jesus replied,* "Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but you will follow later." 37 Peter said to him, "Lord, why am I not able to follow you now? I will lay down my life for you!" 38 Jesus replied, "Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly I say to you, the rooster will not crow until you have denied me three times!

Behold, the one who is betraying me is approaching!" 47 And while* he was still speaking, behold, Judas—one of the twelve—arrived, and with him a large crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and elders of the people. 48 Now the one who was betraying him had given them a sign, saying, "The one whom I kiss—he is the one.* Arrest him!" 49 And he came up to Jesus immediately and* said, "Greetings, Rabbi," and kissed him.

Psalms 1:1-6

1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the advice of the wicked; nor does he stand in the way of sinners; nor does he sit in the assembly of mockers. 2 Instead, in the law of Yahweh is his delight, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3 And so, he is like a tree planted by streams of water that gives its fruit in its season; its leaf also does not wither. Therefore all that he does prospers. 4 Not so the wicked. Instead, they are like the chaff that the wind scatters. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; 6 for Yahweh knows the way of the righteous,* but the way of the wicked will perish.

Psalms 23:1-6

1 Yahweh is my shepherd; I will not lack for anything. 2 In grassy pastures he makes me lie down; by quiet waters he leads me. 3 He restores my life.* He leads me in correct paths* for the sake of his name. 4 Even when I walk in a dark valley, I fear no evil because you are with me. Your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare before me a table in the presence of my oppressors. You anoint my head with oil; my cup is overflowing. 6 Surely goodness and loyal love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will stay* in the house* of Yahweh for a very long time.*

James 1:1-27

1 James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes in the dispersion. Greetings! 2 Consider it all joy, my brothers, whenever you encounter various trials, 3 because you* know that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 And let endurance have its perfect effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing. 5 Now if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask for it from God, who gives to all without reservation and not reproaching, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask for it in faith, without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed about. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. 9 Now let the brother of humble circumstances boast in his high position, 10 but the rich person in his humiliation, because he will pass away like a flower of the grass. 11 For the sun rises with its burning heat and dries up the grass, and its flower falls off, and the beauty of its appearance is lost. So also the rich person in his pursuits* will wither away. 12 Blessed is the person* who endures testing, because when he* is approved he will receive the crown of life that he* has promised to those who love him. 13 No one who is being tempted should say, "I am being tempted by God," for God cannot be tempted* by evil, and he himself tempts no one. 14 But each one is tempted when he* is dragged away and enticed by his own desires. 15 Then desire, after it* has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it* is brought to completion, gives birth to death. 16 Do not be deceived, my dear brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of change. 18 By his* will he gave birth to us through the message of truth, so that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures. 19 Understand this, my dear brothers: every person must be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, 20 for human* anger does not accomplish the righteousness of God. 21 Therefore, putting aside all moral uncleanness and wicked excess, welcome* with humility the implanted message which is able to save your souls. 22 But be doers of the message and not hearers only,* deceiving yourselves, 23 because if anyone is a hearer of the message and not a doer, this one is like someone* staring at his own face* in a mirror, 24 for he looks at himself and goes away and immediately forgets what sort of person he was. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues to do it, not being a forgetful hearer but a doer who acts, this one will be blessed in what he does*. 26 If anyone thinks he is religious, although he* does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless. 27 Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our* God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

Mark 11:25

25 And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him,* so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your sins."*

48 But Jesus said to him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth— 2 Now* the earth was formless and empty, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally, become strong in the Lord and in the might of his strength. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the stratagems of the devil, 12 because our struggle is not against blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Because of this, take up the full armor of God, in order that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, girding your waist with truth, and putting on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and binding shoes under your feet with the preparation of the good news of peace, 16 in everything taking up the shield of faith, with which you are able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one, 17 and receive the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 with all prayer and supplication praying at all times in the Spirit, and to this end being alert with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints,

Matthew 6:14-15

14 For if you forgive people their sins, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive people, neither will your Father forgive your sins.
