John 13:1-38

1 Before the feast of Easter, when Jesus knew that his hour was come, that he should depart out of this world unto the father; When he loved his which were in the world, unto the end he loved them; 2 And when supper was ended, after that, the devil had put in the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him. 3 Jesus, knowing that the father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; 4 He rose from supper, and laid aside his upper garments, and took a towel, and gird himself. 5 After that, poured he water into a basin, and began to wash his disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was gird. 6 Then came he to Simon Peter. And Peter said to him, "Lord shalt thou wash my feet?" 7 Jesus answered and said unto him, "What I do, thou knowest not now, but thou shalt know hereafter." 8 Peter said unto him, "Thou shalt not wash my feet while the world standeth." Jesus answered him, "If I wash thee not, thou shalt have no part with me." 9 Simon Peter said unto him, "Lord not my feet only: but also my hands and my head." 10 Jesus said to him, "He that is washed needeth not, save to wash his feet, and is clean every whit. And ye are clean: but not all." 11 For he knew his betrayer. Therefore said he, "Ye are not all clean." 12 After he had washed their feet, and received his clothes, and was set down again, he said unto them, "Know ye what I have done to you? 13 Ye call me 'Master' and 'Lord,' and ye say well, for so am I. 14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet: ye also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. 16 Verily, verily I say unto you, the servant is not greater than his master; Neither the messenger greater than he that sent him. 17 If ye understand these things, happy are ye if ye do them. 18 "I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: But that the scripture be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me. 19 Now tell I you, before it come: that when it is come to pass ye might believe that I am he. 20 Verily, verily I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send, receiveth me. And he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me." 21 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in the spirit, and testified saying, "Verily, verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me." 22 And then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake. 23 There was one of his disciples which leaned on Jesus' bosom, whom Jesus loved. 24 To him beckoned Simon Peter that he should ask who it was of whom he spake. 25 He then, as he leaned on Jesus' breast, said unto him, "Lord who is it?" 26 Jesus answered, "He it is to whom I give a sop, when I have dipped it." And he wet a sop, and gave it to Judas Iscariot, Simon's son. 27 And after the sop, Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, "That thou dost, do quickly." 28 That wist no man at the table, for what intent he spake unto him. 29 Some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, "Buy those things that we have need of against the feast," or that he should give something to the poor. 30 As soon then as he had received the sop, he went immediately out. And it was night. 31 When he was gone out, Jesus said, "Now is the son of man glorified. And God is glorified by him. 32 If God be glorified by him, God shall also glorify him in himself: and shall straightway glorify him. 33 Dear children, yet a little while am I with you. Ye shall seek me, and as I said unto the Jews, 'Whither I go, thither can ye not come.' Also to you say I now. 34 A new commandment give I unto you: that ye love together: as I have loved you, that even so ye love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye shall have love one to another." 36 Simon Peter said unto him, "Lord whither goest thou?" Jesus answered him, "Whither I go thou canst not follow me now, but thou shalt follow me afterwards." 37 Peter said unto him, "Lord why cannot I follow thee now? I will give my life for thy sake." 38 Jesus answered him, "Wilt thou give thy life for my sake? Verily, verily I say unto thee, the cock shall not crow, till thou have denied me thrice."

And kissed him. 50 And Jesus said unto him, "Friend, wherefore art thou come?" Then came they and laid hands on Jesus and took him.

1 O Blessed is the man that hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, and hath not sat in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in his law will he exercise himself, day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the waterside, that will bring forth his fruit in due season. His leaf, also, shall not wither; and, look, whatsoever he doeth, it shall prosper. 4 As for the ungodly, it is not so with them: but they are like the chaff, which the wind scattereth away from the face of the earth. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not be able to stand in the judgment, neither the sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous; but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalms 23:1-6

1 {A Psalm of David} The LORD is my shepherd; I can want nothing. 2 He feedeth me in a green pasture, and leadeth me forth beside the waters of comfort. 3 He quickeneth my soul, and bringeth me forth 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 comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me against mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil, and fillest my cup full. 6 O let thy loving-kindness and mercy follow me all the days of my life, that I may dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

James 1:1-27

1 James, the servant of God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ, sendeth greeting to the twelve tribes which are scattered here and there. 2 My brethren, count it exceeding joy when ye fall into divers temptations, 3 forasmuch as ye know how that the trying of your faith bringeth patience: 4 and let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and sound, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, which giveth to all men indifferently and casteth no man in the teeth; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, and waver not. For he that doubteth is like the waves of the sea, tossed of the wind, and carried with violence. 7 Neither let that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A wavering minded man is unstable in all his ways. 9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted, 10 and the rich in that he is made low. For even as the flower of the grass shall he vanish away. 11 The sun riseth with heat, and the grass withereth and his flower falleth away, and the beauty of the fashion of it perisheth: even so shall the rich man perish with his abundance. 12 Happy is the man that endureth in temptation, for when he is tried he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted that he is tempted of God: for God tempteth not unto evil, neither tempteth he any man. 14 But every man is tempted, drawn away, and enticed of his own concupiscence. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, she bringeth forth sin, and sin when it is finished bringeth forth death. 16 Err not, my dear brethren. 17 Every good gift, and every perfect gift, is from above and cometh down from the father of light, with whom is no variableness, neither is he changed unto darkness. 18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of life, that we should be the first fruits of his creatures. 19 Wherefore, dear brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath. 20 For the wrath of man worketh not that which is righteous before God. 21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness, all superfluity of maliciousness, and receive with meekness the word that is grafted in you, which is able to save your souls: 22 And see that ye be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves with sophistry. 23 For if any hear the word, and do it not, he is like unto a man that beholdeth his bodily face in a glass. 24 For as soon as he hath looked on himself, he goeth his way, and forgetteth immediately what his fashion was: 25 but whoso looketh in the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein — if he be not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work — the same shall be happy in his deed. 26 If any man among you seem devout, and refrain not his tongue: but deceive his own heart, this man's devotion is in vain. 27 Pure devotion, and undefiled before God the father, is this: To visit the friendless, and widows in their adversity, and to keep himself unspotted of the world.

25 And when ye stand and pray: forgive, if ye have anything against any man;

1 In the beginning God created heaven and earth. 2 The Earth was void and empty and darkness was upon the deep, and the spirit of God moved upon the water.

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the armour of God, that ye may stand steadfast against the crafty assaults of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood: but against rule, against power, and against worldly rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness for heavenly things. 13 For this cause, take unto you the armour of God, that ye may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand perfect in all things. 14 Stand, therefore, and your loins gird about with verity, having on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and shod with shoes prepared by the gospel of peace. 16 Above all, take to you the shield of faith, wherewith ye may quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God, 18 and pray always with all manner prayer and supplication — and that in the spirit — and watch thereunto with all instance and supplication for all saints,

Matthew 6:14-15

14 For and if ye shall forgive other men their trespasses, your heavenly father shall also forgive you. 15 But and if ye will not forgive men their trespasses, no more shall your father forgive your trespasses.
