Job 1:1-22

1 There was a man in the land of Uz whose* name was Job. That* man was blameless and upright and God-fearing and turning away from evil. 2 And seven sons and three daughters were born to him. 3 Then* his livestock came to be seven thousand sheep and goats and three thousand camels and five hundred pairs* of oxen and five hundred female donkeys, and he had very many slaves, and that man was greater than all the people of the east. 4 And his sons used to go and hold a feast at each other's house* on his day, and they would send, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. 5 Then when* the days of the feast had run their course, Job would send,* and he would sanctify them. Thus* he would arise early in the morning and offer burnt offerings according to the number of all of them, because Job thought,* "Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed* God in their heart." This is what Job used to do all the time.* 6 And it happened one day* that* the sons of God* came to present themselves before Yahweh, and Satan* also came into their midst. 7 So* Yahweh said to Satan,* "From where have you come?"
Then* Satan* answered Yahweh and said, "From roaming on the earth and from walking about in it." 8 So* Yahweh said to Satan,* "Have you considered* my servant Job? Indeed,* there is no one like him on the earth—a blameless man and upright and God-fearing and turning away from evil." 9 Then* Satan* answered Yahweh and said, "Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 Have you* not put a fence around him and his household and around all that belongs to him* on every side?* You have blessed the work of his hands, and his livestock* has increased in the land. 11 But,* on the other hand, stretch out* your hand and touch all that belongs to him* and see whether* he will curse* you to your face." 12 So* Yahweh said to Satan,* "Look, all that belongs to him* is in your power.* Only do not stretch out your hand against* him." So* Satan* went out from Yahweh's presence.* 13 And then there was one day when* his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their firstborn brother's house. 14 And a messenger came to Job and said, "The oxen were plowing, and the female donkeys were feeding beside them.* 15 Then* the Sabeans attacked,* and they took them, and they slew the servants by the edge of the sword.* But* I escaped, even I alone, to tell you." 16 While this one was still speaking, another* came and said, "The fire of God fell from the heavens, and it blazed up against the sheep and goats and against the servants, and it consumed them. But I escaped, even I alone, to tell you." 17 While this one was still speaking, another* came and said, "The Chaldeans formed three divisions, and they made a raid on the camels, and they carried them away, and they struck your servants by the edge of the sword,* but I escaped, even I alone, to tell you." 18 At the time* this one was speaking, another* came and said, "Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their firstborn brother's house. 19 And behold,* a great wind came from across the desert, and it struck the four corners of the house so that* it fell upon the young people, and they died. But I escaped, even I alone, to tell you." 20 Then* Job arose and tore his outer garment* and shaved his head; then* he fell upon the ground and he worshiped. 21 Then* he said, "Naked I came out from my mother's womb, and naked I will return there. Yahweh gives, and Yahweh takes. Let Yahweh's name be blessed." 22 In all this, Job did not sin and did not charge God with wrongdoing.*

Psalms 5:1-12

1 For the music director; with the flutes. A psalm of David.*
Hear my words, O Yahweh. Give heed to my sighing.* 2 Listen to the sound of my pleading,* my king and my God, for to you I pray. 3 O Yahweh, in the morning you will hear my voice. In the morning I will set forth* my case to you and I will watch.* 4 For you are not a God who desires* wickedness. Evil cannot dwell with you. 5 The boastful do not stand before* your eyes. You hate all evildoers. 6 You destroy speakers of lies.* A man of bloodshed* and deceit Yahweh abhors. 7 But as for me,* through the abundance of your steadfast love* I will enter your house.* I will bow down* toward your holy temple* in awe of you. 8 O Yahweh, lead me in your righteousness because of my enemies; make straight before me your way. 9 For there is not anything reliable in his mouth; their inner part is destruction.* Their throat is an open grave; with their tongue they speak deceit.* 10 Treat them as guilty, O God; let them fall because of their plans. Because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out, for they have rebelled against you. 11 But let all who take shelter in you rejoice. Let them ever* sing for joy, because* you spread protection over them; And let those* who love your name exult in you. 12 For you bless the righteous. O Yahweh, like a* shield you surround him with good favor.

Psalms 5:7

7 But as for me,* through the abundance of your steadfast love* I will enter your house.* I will bow down* toward your holy temple* in awe of you.

Psalms 51:1-19

1 For the music director. A psalm of David. When Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.*
Be gracious to me, O God, according to your loyal love. According to your abundant mercies, blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and from my sin cleanse me. 3 For I myself know* my transgressions,* and my sin is ever before me. 4 Against you, only you, I have sinned and have done this evil* in your eyes, so that you are correct when you speak, you are blameless when you judge. 5 Behold, in iniquity I was born, and in sin my mother conceived me. 6 Behold, you delight in truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden parts you make me to know wisdom. 7 Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean. Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 Make me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. 9 Hide your face from my sins, and all my iniquities blot out. 10 Create a clean heart for me, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.* 11 Do not cast me away from your presence, and do not take your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and with a willing spirit sustain me. 13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will turn back to you. 14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, the God of my salvation; then my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness. 15 O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will proclaim your praise. 16 For you do not delight in sacrifice or I would give it. With a burnt offering you are not pleased. 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. 18 Do good in your favor toward Zion. Build the walls of Jerusalem. 19 Then you will delight in righteous sacrifices, burnt offering and whole burnt offering. Then bulls will be offered on your altar.

Genesis 1:1-31

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. 3 And God said, "Let there be light!" And there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good, and God caused there to be a separation between the light and between the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be a vaulted dome* in the midst of the waters, and let it cause a separation between the waters."* 7 So* God made the vaulted dome,* and he caused a separation between the waters which were under the vaulted dome* and between the waters which were over the vaulted dome.* And it was so. 8 And God called the vaulted dome* "heaven."* And there was evening, and there was morning, a second day. 9 And God said, "Let the waters under heaven* be gathered to one place, and let the dry ground appear." And it was so. 10 And God called the dry ground "earth," and he called the collection of the waters "seas." And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth produce green plants that will bear seed—fruit trees bearing fruit in which there is seed*—according to its* kind, on the earth." And it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth green plants bearing seed according to its* kind, and trees bearing fruit in which there was seed* according to its* kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day. 14 And God said, "Let there be lights* in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to separate day from night,* and let them be as signs and for appointed times, and for days and years, 15 and they shall be as lights* in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to give light on the earth." And it was so. 16 And God made two lights,* the greater light* to rule* the day and the smaller light* to rule* the night, and the stars. 17 And God placed them in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to give light on the earth 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate light from darkness.* And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. 20 And God said, "Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly over the earth across the face of the vaulted dome* of heaven.* 21 So* God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kind, and every bird with wings according to its* kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth." 23 And there was evening, and there was morning, a fifth day. 24 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kind: cattle and moving things, and wild animals* according to their kind." And it was so. 25 So* God made wild animals* according to their kind and the cattle according to their kind, and every creeping thing of the earth according to its* kind. And God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, "Let us make humankind in* our image and according to* our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of heaven,* and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every moving thing that moves upon the earth." 27 So* God created humankind in* his image, in* the likeness of God he created him,* male and female he created them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of heaven,* and over every animal that moves upon the earth." 29 And God said, "Look—I am giving to you every plant that bears seed which is on the face of the whole earth, and every kind of tree that bears fruit.* They shall be yours as food." 30 And to every kind of animal of the earth and to every bird of heaven,* and to everything that moves upon the earth in which there is life I am giving every green plant as food." And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning, a sixth day.

1 A psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.*
O God, you are my God; I will seek you diligently. My soul thirsts for you; my flesh longs for you as in a dry and weary land without water. 2 Thus I have seen you in the sanctuary, beholding your strength and glory. 3 Because your loyal love is better than life, my lips will praise you. 4 So I will bless you while I live. I will lift up my hands* in your name. 5 My soul will be satisfied as with the best and richest food, and with joyful lips my mouth will praise. 6 When I remember you on my bed, I meditate on you in the night watches. 7 Because you have been my help, therefore* in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy. 8 My soul clings to* you; your right hand upholds me. 9 But as for them who seek my life for ruin, they will go into the depths of the earth. 10 They who would deliver him to the sword* will become a portion for jackals. 11 However, the king will rejoice in God. Everyone who swears an oath by him will boast, because the mouth of the liars will be stopped.
