John 13:1-38

1 Jesus knew before the feast of the Passover that the time had come for him to leave this world and return to his Father. He loved his own who were in the world to the very end. 2 The devil influenced the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son. So he betrayed him during the meal. 3 Jesus knew that the Father had given him power over all things. He also knew it came from God and he returns it to God. 4 He got up from the meal and laid aside his garments. He wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 Then he poured water into the basin and washed the disciples’ feet. He wiped them with the towel he was wearing. 6 When he approached, Simon Peter said: »Lord do you wash my feet?« 7 »You do not know what I do now,« Jesus said: »but you will understand later.« 8 Peter said: »You will never wash my feet.« Jesus answered him: »If I do not wash you; you have no part with me.« 9 Simon Peter replied: »Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.« 10 Jesus responded: »He that is bathed must wash his feet. He is clean everywhere and you are clean, but not all.« 11 He knew who would betray him. That is why he said you are not all clean. 12 After he washed their feet he put his outer garments on and sat down. He asked: »Do you know what I have done to you? 13 »You call me Teacher and Lord and you are right for I am. 14 »If the Teacher and Lord washed your feet you should wash one another’s feet. 15 »I have given you an example. You should also do as I have done to you. 16 »Truly I tell you, a servant is not greater than his master. Neither is one that is sent greater than he that sent him. 17 »If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them. 18 »I do not speak about all of you. I know whom I have chosen! This way the scripture may be fulfilled: ‘He that eats my bread lifted up his heel against me.’« 19 »I tell you before it happens. So that when it takes place you may believe that I am he. 20 »Truly I say to you, he who receives whom ever I send receives me. And he who receives me receives him who sent me. 21 After Jesus said this he was troubled in spirit and said: One of you will betray me.« 22 The disciples looked at each other. They were perplexed and wondered who it would be. 23 The disciple whom Jesus loved was leaning on his chest. 24 Simon Peter motioned to him: »Ask him who it is,« he urged. 25 He leaned back on Jesus’ breast and said to him: »Lord, who is it?« 26 Jesus answered: »It is he to whom I give a piece of bread after I dip it.« So when he dipped the bread he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. 27 After he was given the piece of bread Satan entered him. Jesus said to him: »Do what you do quickly.« 28 No man at the table knew for what purpose he spoke this to him. 29 Some thought Judas was going to shop for food for the feast or give something to the poor. Judas was in charge of the moneybox. 30 He received the morsel of bread and left immediately. It was night. 31 When he was gone Jesus said: »Now the Son of man is glorified (praised) (exulted) (proclaimed) (honored) and God is glorified through him. 32 »If God is glorified through him, God will also immediately glorify him. 33 »Little children I am with you for a little while. You will seek me and as I told the Jews now I say to you, where I go, you cannot come. 34 »I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also love one another. 35 »All men will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.« 36 Simon Peter said: »Lord where are you going?« Jesus answered: »Where I am going you cannot follow me now. You will follow me later.« 37 Peter said: »Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.« 38 Jesus answered: »Will you lay down your life for me? Truly I tell you the cock will not crow till you have denied me three times.«

The hour is here and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 »Arise, let us go; the man who betrays me is here.« 47 As he spoke, Judas, one of the twelve, followed by a crowd carrying swords and spears, approached him. The chief priest and elders of the people had sent them. 48 He that betrayed him gave them a sign. He told them: »The one I kiss is he. Take him.« 49 He went directly to Jesus and said: »Hail, Rabbi,« and kissed him. 50 Jesus told him: »Do that for which you came.« They laid hands on Jesus, and captured him.

Psalms 1:1-6

1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of the scornful mockers. 2 But his delight is in the law of Jehovah (YHWH), and on his law he meditates (ponders) (speaks softly with deep thought) (studies) (contemplates) day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water. It yields its fruit in season and its leaves do not wither. Whatever he does prospers. 4 This is not so for the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand (be upright) in the judgment. The sinners will not stand (endure) in the assembly of the righteous. 6 Jehovah knows (is fully aware of) the way of the righteous. But the way of the wicked will perish.

Psalms 23:1-6

1 ([Psalm of David]) Jehovah is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores me and he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me. Your rod and your staff they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of Jehovah forever.

James 1:1-27

1 This letter is from James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. Greetings to the twelve tribes that are scattered. 2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials. 3 Know that the testing of your faith produces patience (endurance). 4 Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be mature, complete, and lacking in nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom let him ask of God. He gives to all generously and without reproach and it will be given to him. 6 However he must ask in faith, not doubting: for he who doubts is like a surging wave of the sea driven by the wind and tossed. 7 Do not let that man think that he will receive anything from God. 8 A double-minded man is unstable (inconsistent) in all his ways. 9 Let the brother of humble circumstances glory in his high position (exaltation). 10 But the rich must be glad when God humbles them. This is because they will wither like wildflowers and pass away. 11 The sun rises with scorching heat and withers the grass. The flower falls off and its beauty perishes. So also the rich man will fade away in his pursuits. 12 The man who endures under trial is blessed. For when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life that God promised to those who love him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted: »God tempts me.« God cannot be tempted with evil, and he tempts (entices) (tests) (trys) no one. 14 Each man is tempted when he is drawn away by his evil desire (lust). He is enticed (allured). 15 Then evil desires, when conceived, give birth to sin: and the sin, when it is full grown, brings forth death. 16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above. It comes down from the Father of lights (truth and spiritual purity), with whom there is no variation. He does not change like shifting shadows. 18 Using his own will, he gave us birth through the word of truth. This way we would be a kind of first fruits of his creatures. 19 You know this, my beloved brothers. But let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger. 20 The anger of man does not promote the righteousness of God. 21 Therefore get rid of all filthiness and wickedness. Receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save you. 22 Be doers of the word, and not hearers only, who deceive themselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man looking at his natural face in a mirror. 24 He sees himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what manner of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and so continues, being not a hearer who forgets but a doer who works, this man will be blessed in what he does. 26 If any man thinks he is religious, while he does not control his tongue but deceives his heart, this man's religion is vain (worthless) (useless). 27 Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to care for the fatherless persons and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself without spot from the world.

25 »When you say a prayer have forgiveness in your heart. Forgive anything you have against anyone so that your Heavenly Father will forgive you your sins.«

Genesis 1:1-2

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form and empty. Darkness covered the deep water. The Spirit of God hovered over the waters.

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in his mighty strength. 11 Put on the full armor (every implement) of God, that you may be able to stand against the cunning (inventive) (clever) methods of the devil. 12 Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in heavenly places. 13 For that reason, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore and gird your loins with truth. Put on the breastplate of righteousness. 15 Shod your feet with the preparation of the good news of peace. 16 Also take up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 With prayer and supplication pray at all times in the Spirit. Watch with all perseverance and supplication for all the holy ones.

Matthew 6:14-15

14 »If you forgive others their sins, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 »If you do not forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
