Psalms 5:1-12

1 ([Psalm of David]) Listen to my words, O Jehovah, Consider my innermost thoughts. 2 Listen to the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray. 3 In the morning, O Jehovah, You will hear my voice. In the morning I will address my prayer to you and be on the watch. 4 For you are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness. No evil dwells with you! 5 The arrogant shall not stand before your eyes. You hate all who practice sin. 6 You destroy those who speak falsehood. Jehovah abhors the man of bloodshed and deceit. 7 But as for me, by your abundant loving kindness I will enter your house. At Your holy temple I will bow in reverence of you. 8 O Jehovah, lead me in your righteousness because of my enemies. Make your way straight in my presence. 9 There is nothing truthful in what they say! Their inward part is destruction. Their throat is an open grave. They flatter with their tongue. 10 Pronounce them guilty, O God. Let them fall by their own devices. In the multitude of their transgressions thrust them out, because they are rebellious against you. 11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice. Let them ever sing for joy because you defend them. Let those who love your name exult in you. 12 You bless the righteous man, O Jehovah. You surround him with favor as with a shield.

Psalms 5:7

7 But as for me, by your abundant loving kindness I will enter your house. At Your holy temple I will bow in reverence of you.

Psalms 51:1-19

1 ([[Psalm of David] when the prophet Nathan came to him after David's adultery with Bathsheba:]) Have mercy on me, O God, in keeping with your loving-kindness. According to your unlimited compassion, wipe out my transgressions. 2 Wash me thoroughly from my perversity (iniquity) (guilt), and cleanse me from my sin. 3 I admit my transgressions. My sin is always in front of me. 4 I have sinned against you, especially you. I have done what you consider evil in your sight. So you hand down justice when you speak, and you are blameless when you judge. 5 Indeed, I was born in perversity (mischief) (evil). I was a sinner when my mother conceived me. 6 Yet, you desire truth from the secret person within me. Deep down inside me teach me wisdom. 7 Purify me from sin with hyssop, and I will be clean. Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. 8 Make me hear sounds of joy and gladness. Let the bones that you have broken rejoice. 9 Hide your face (turn away) from my sins, and wipe out (erase) all that I have done wrong. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast (dependable) spirit within me. 11 Do not force me away from your presence, and do not take your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore the joy of your salvation to me, and establish a willing spirit in me. 13 I will teach your ways to transgressors, and sinners will turn to you. 14 Rescue (deliver) me from the bloodguilt of murder O God of my salvation. Let my tongue sing joyfully about your righteousness! 15 O Jehovah, open my lips (help me speak), and my mouth will speak your praise. 16 You do not desire sacrifice. Otherwise, I would offer one to you. You are not pleased with burnt offerings. 17 The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit. O God, you do not despise a broken and sorrowful (contrite) heart. 18 Favor Zion with your goodness. Build the walls of Jerusalem. 19 Then you will be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness (offered in the right spirit) (Heb 13:15) with burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings. Young bulls will be offered on your altar.

Job 1:1-22

1 A man named Job lived in Uz. He was a man of integrity! He was decent, he respected God, and he stayed away from evil. 2 He had seven sons and three daughters. 3 He owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, one thousand head of cattle, and five hundred donkeys. He also had a large number of servants. In fact he was the greatest (richest) of all the Orientals in the East! 4 Job's sons used to take turns giving a feast. They invited many others to come, and they always invited their three sisters to join them. 5 The morning after each feast, Job would get up early to offer sacrifices for each of his children in order to purify them. He always did this because he thought that one of them might have sinned by insulting God unintentionally. 6 The day came when heavenly beings appeared before Jehovah (YHWH). Satan was there among them. 7 Jehovah asked him: »What have you been doing?« Satan answered: »I have been walking here and there and roaming around the earth.« 8 »Did you notice my servant Job?« Jehovah asked. »There is no one on earth as faithful and good as he is. He respects me and is careful not to do anything evil.« 9 Satan replied: »Would Job respect you if he got nothing out of it? 10 »You have always protected him and his family and everything he owns. You bless everything he does. You have given him enough cattle to fill the whole country. 11 »Now suppose you take away everything he has. He will curse you to your face!« 12 »All right,« Jehovah said to Satan, »everything he has is in your power, but you must not hurt Job!« So Satan left. 13 One day when Job's children were having a feast at the home of their oldest brother, 14 a messenger came running to Job. »We were plowing the fields with the cattle,« he said, »and the donkeys were in a nearby pasture. 15 »Suddenly the Sabeans attacked and stole them all. They killed every one of your servants except me. I am the only one who escaped to tell you.« 16 Before he finished speaking, another servant came and said: »Lightning struck the sheep and the shepherds and killed them all. I am the only one who escaped to tell you.« 17 Before he finished speaking, another servant came and said: »Three bands of Chaldean raiders attacked us. They took away the camels and killed all your servants except me. I am the only one who escaped to tell you.« 18 No sooner had he finished speaking, then another servant came and said: »Your children were having a feast at the home of your oldest son, 19 when a storm swept in from the desert. It blew the house down and killed them all. I am the only one who escaped to tell you.« 20 Then Job got up and tore his clothes in grief. He shaved his head and threw himself face down on the ground. 21 He said: »I was born with nothing (naked), and I will die with nothing. Jehovah gave, and now he has taken away. Blessed be the name of Jehovah!« 22 In spite of everything that had happened, Job did not sin by blaming God.

Genesis 1:1-31

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. 3 Then God said: »Let there be light!« And there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good. God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light day. He called the darkness night. There was evening and there was morning, one day. 6 Then God said: »Let there be an expanse in the middle of the waters. Let it separate the waters from the waters.« 7 God made the expanse. He separated the waters that were below the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. It was so. 8 God called the expanse heaven. There was evening and there was morning, a second day. 9 Then God said: »Let the waters below the atmosphere be gathered into one place. Let the dry land appear.« It was so. 10 God called the dry land earth. The gathering of the waters He called seas. God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said: »Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them.« It was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind. God saw that it was good. 13 There was evening and there was morning, a third day. 14 Then God said: »Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. Let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years. 15 »Let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth.« It was so. 16 God made the two great lights. The sun was to govern the day. The moon was to govern the night. He made the stars also. 17 He placed the lights in the sky to shine on the earth. 18 The lights were to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. 20 God said: »Let the waters be filled with many kinds of living beings, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the sky.« 21 God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves in the waters after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind. God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said: »Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.« 23 There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day. 24 God said: »Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind.« It was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds. He made the livestock according to their kinds and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. God saw that it was good. 26 Then God said: »Let us make man in our image, in our likeness. Let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth and over all the creatures that move along the ground.« 27 God created man in his own image. In the image of God he created him. He created male and female. 28 God blessed them and said to them: »Be fruitful and increase in number. Fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and dominate the birds of the air. Have dominion over every living creature that moves on the ground.« 29 Then God said: »I give you every plant that bears seed on the face of the entire earth. I also give you every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 »Also every beast of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground; everything that has the breath of life in it, I give every green plant for food.« It was so. 31 God saw all that he had made. It was very good. There was evening, and there was morning, the sixth day.

Psalms 63:1-11

1 ([[Psalm of David] in the wilderness of Judah:]) O God, you are my God. At dawn I search for you. I thirst for you. My body longs for you in a dry, parched land where there is no water. 2 I look for you in the holy place to see your power and your glory. 3 My lips will praise you because your love (mercy) (loving kindness) (steadfast love) is better than life. 4 So I will bless (thank) you as long as I live. I will lift up my hands [in prayer] in your name. 5 You satisfy me with the richest foods. My mouth will sing your praise with joyful lips. 6 As I lie on my bed, I remember you. Through the long hours of the night, I think about you. 7 You have been my help. In the shadow (defense) of your wings, I sing joyfully. 8 I cling to you. Your right hand supports (holds) me. 9 But those who try to destroy my life will go into the depths of the earth. 10 Swords will cut them down. Their dead bodies will be left as food for jackals. 11 But the king will find joy in God. Everyone who takes an oath by God will speak praise, but the mouths of liars will be shut.
