Job 1:1-22

1 In the land of Uz, there was a man called Job: an innocent and virtuous man, such a one as feared God, and eschewed evil. 2 This man had seven sons, and three daughters. 3 His substance was seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred she-asses, and a very great household: so that he was one of the most principal men among all them of the east country. 4 And his sons went and made banquets - one day in one house, another day in another - and sent for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. 5 And it fortuned that when they had passed over the time of their banqueting round about; Job sent for them, and sanctified them, and gat up early, and offered for every one a burnt offering. For Job thought thus: "Peradventure my sons have done some offense, and have been unthankful to God in their hearts." And thus did Job everyday. 6 Now upon a time, when the servants of God came and stood before the LORD, Satan came also among them. 7 And the LORD said unto Satan, "From whence comest thou?" Satan answered the LORD, and said, "I have gone about the land and walked through it." 8 Then said the LORD unto Satan, "Hast thou not considered my servant Job, and how that he is an innocent and virtuous man: such one as feareth God, and escheweth evil, and that there is none like him in the land?" 9 Satan answered, and said unto the LORD, "Doth Job fear God for naught? 10 Hast thou not preserved him, his house, and all his substance on every side? Hast thou not blessed the work of his hands? Is not his possession increased in the land? 11 But lay thine hand upon him a little, touch once all that he hath, and, I hold, he shall curse thee to thy face." 12 And the LORD said unto Satan, "Lo, all that he hath, be in thy power: only upon himself see that thou lay not thine hand." Then went Satan forth from the LORD. 13 Now upon a certain day when his sons and daughters were eating, and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house, 14 there came a messenger unto Job, and said, "While the oxen were a plowing, and the asses going in the pasture beside them, 15 the Sabeans came in violently, and took them all away: yea, they have slain thy servants with the sword, and I only ran my way, to tell thee." 16 And while he was yet speaking, there came another, and said, "The fire of God is fallen from heaven, it hath consumed, and burnt up all thy sheep and servants: and I only ran my way, to tell thee." 17 In the mean season while he was yet speaking, there came another, and said, "The Chaldeans made three armies, and fell upon thy camels, which they have carried away: yea, and slain thy servants with the sword, and I only am gotten away, to tell thee." 18 While he was speaking, there came yet another, and said, "Thy sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house, 19 and suddenly there came a mighty great wind out of the South, and smote the four corners of the house: which fell upon thy children, so that they are dead, and I alone am gotten away, to tell thee." 20 Then Job stood up, and rent his clothes, shaved his head, fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, 21 and said, "Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I turn thither again. The LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; now blessed be the name of the LORD." 22 In all these things did Job not offend, nor murmured foolishly against God.

Psalms 5:1-12

1 {To the Chanter in Neginoth, a Psalm of David} Ponder my words, O LORD; consider my meditation. 2 O hearken thou unto the voice of my petition, my King and my God; for unto thee will I make my prayer. 3 My voice shalt thou hear betimes, O LORD. Early in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. 4 For thou art the God that hast no pleasure in wickedness; neither shall any evil dwell with thee. 5 Such as be foolish shall not stand in thy sight, for thou hatest all them that work vanity. 6 Thou shalt destroy the liars; the LORD will abhor both the bloodthirsty and deceitful man. 7 But as for me, I will come into thy house, even upon the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. 8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way plain before my face. 9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouths; they dissemble in their hearts. Their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue. 10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them perish in their own imaginations! Cast them out in the multitude of their ungodliness; for they have rebelled against thee. 11 And let all them that put their trust in thee rejoice. They shall ever be giving of thanks, because thou defendest them. They that love thy name shall be joyful in thee; 12 for thou, LORD, wilt give thy blessing unto the righteous, and with thy favourable kindness wilt thou defend him, as with a shield.

Psalms 5:7

7 But as for me, I will come into thy house, even upon the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

Psalms 51:1-19

1 {To the chanter, a Psalm of David, when the Prophet Nathan came unto him, after he was gone in to Bathsheba} Have mercy upon me, O God, after thy great goodness; according to the multitude of thy mercies do away mine offences. 2 Wash me well from my wickedness, and cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I acknowledge my faults, and my sin is ever before me. 4 Against thee only have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight, that thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and clear when thou shalt judge. 5 Behold, I was born in wickedness, and in sin hath my mother conceived me. 6 But lo, thou hast a pleasure in the truth, and hast showed me secret wisdom. 7 Thou shalt purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; thou shalt wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 Oh let me hear of joy and gladness, that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. 9 Turn thy face from my sins, and put out all my misdeeds. 10 Make in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. 11 Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy spirit from me. 12 O give me the comfort of thy help again, and establish me with thy free spirit. 13 Then shall I teach thy ways unto the wicked, that sinners may be converted unto thee. 14 Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, thou that art the God of my health; that my tongue may praise thy righteousness. 15 Open my lips, O LORD, that my mouth may show thy praise. 16 For if thou hadst pleasure in sacrifice, I would give it thee: but thou delightest not in burnt-offerings. 17 The sacrifice of God is a troubled spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, shalt thou not despise. 18 O be favourable and gracious unto Zion; build thou the walls of Jerusalem. 19 For then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifice of righteousness, with the burnt-offerings and oblations; then shall they lay bullocks upon thine altar.

Genesis 1:1-31

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. 3 Then God said, "Let there be light." And there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good: and divided the light from the darkness, 5 and called the light "day," and the darkness "night." And so of the evening and morning was made the first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be a firmament between the waters, and let it divide the waters asunder." 7 Then God made the firmament, and parted the waters which were under the firmament, from the waters that were above the firmament: And it was so. 8 And God called the firmament "heaven." And so of the evening and morning was made the second day. 9 And God said, "Let the waters that are under heaven gather themselves unto one place, that the dry land may appear." And it came so to pass. 10 And God called the dry land "the earth" and the gathering together of waters called he "the sea." And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth herb and grass that sow seed, and fruitful trees that bear fruit, every one in his kind, having their seed in themselves, upon the earth." And it came so to pass. 12 And the earth brought forth herb and grass sowing seed, every one in his kind, and trees bearing fruit and having their seed in themselves, every one in his kind. And God saw that it was good: 13 and then of the evening and morning was made the third day. 14 Then said God, "Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven, to divide the day from the night; that they may be unto signs, seasons, days and years. 15 And let them be lights in the firmament of heaven, to shine upon the earth." And so it was. 16 And God made two great lights: a greater light to rule the day, and a lesser light to rule the night; and he made stars also. 17 And God put them in the firmament of heaven to shine upon the earth, 18 and to rule the day and the night, and to divide the light from darkness. And God saw that it was good: 19 and so of the evening and morning was made the fourth day. 20 And God said, "Let the water bring forth creatures that move and have life, and fowls for to fly over the earth under the firmament of heaven." 21 And God created great whales and all manner of creatures that live and move, which the waters brought forth in their kinds, and all manner of feathered fowls in their kinds. And God saw that it was good: 22 and God blessed them, saying, "Grow and multiply, and fill the waters of the seas, and let the fowls multiply upon the earth." 23 And so of the evening and morning was made the fifth day. 24 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures in their kinds: cattle and worms and beasts of the earth in their kinds." And so it came to pass. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth in their kinds, and cattle in their kinds, and all manner worms of the earth in their kinds: and God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, "Let us make man in our similitude and after our likeness: that he may have rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over all worms that creep on the earth." 27 And God created man after his likeness, after the likeness of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, "Grow and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over all the beasts that move on the earth. 29 And God said, "See, I have given you all herbs that sow seed which are on all the earth, and all manner trees that have fruit in them and sow seed; to be meat for you, 30 and for all beasts of the earth, and unto all fowls of the air, and unto all that creepeth on the earth wherein is life, that they may have all manner herbs and grass for to eat." And even so it was. 31 And God beheld all that he had made, and lo they were exceeding good: and so of the evening and morning was made the sixth day.

Psalms 91:5-7

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for any terror by night, nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 for the pestilence that walketh in darkness, nor for the sickness that destroyeth in the noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy righthand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

1 {A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah} O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee. My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh also longeth after thee, in a barren and dry land where no water is. 2 Thus do I look for thee in thy Sanctuary, that I might behold thy power and glory. 3 For thy loving-kindness is better than life itself; my lips shall praise thee. 4 As long as I live will I magnify thee and lift up my hands in thy name. 5 My soul is satisfied, even as it were with marrow and fatness, when my mouth praiseth thee with joyful lips. 6 Have I not remembered thee in my bed, and thought upon thee when I was waking? 7 For thou hast been my helper, and under the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. 8 My soul hangeth upon thee; thy righthand upholdeth me. 9 These also that seek the hurt of my soul, they shall go under the earth. 10 They shall fall into the sword, and be a portion for foxes. 11 But the king shall rejoice in God; all they that swear by him shall be commended, for the mouth of liars shall be stopped.
