qlet me never be put to shame;
in your rrighteousness deliver me!
and for your uname's sake you lead me and guide me;
for you are my xrefuge.
5 yInto your hand I commit my spirit;
you have redeemed me, O Lord, zfaithful God.
you have dknown the distress of my soul,
8 and you have not edelivered me into the hand of the enemy;
you have set my feet in fa broad place.
9 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am gin distress;
hmy eye is wasted from grief;
and imy bones waste away.
11 Because of all my adversaries I have become ja reproach,
especially to my kneighbors,
those who see me in the street lflee from me.
12 I have been mforgotten like one who is dead;
I have become like na broken vessel.
13 For I ohear the whispering of many—
pas they scheme together against me,
14 But I qtrust in you, O Lord;
15 My rtimes are in your hand;
srescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors!
16 tMake your face shine on your servant;
17 O Lord, ulet me not be put to shame,
let them go vsilently to Sheol.
yin the sight of the children of mankind!
20 In zthe cover of your presence you hide them
you astore them in your shelter
for he has wondrously bshown his steadfast love to me
when I was in ca besieged city.
23 Love the Lord, all you his gsaints!
but abundantly hrepays the one who acts in pride.
24 iBe strong, and let your heart take courage,
35 Contend, O Lord, with those who ycontend with me;
zfight against those who fight against me!
2 Take hold of ashield and buckler
3 Draw the spear and javelin1
Let them be dturned back and disappointed
5 Let them be like echaff before the wind,
6 Let their way be dark and fslippery,
lexulting in his salvation.
10 All my mbones shall say,
“O Lord, nwho is like you,
12 pThey repay me evil for good;
my soul is bereft.4
13 But I, qwhen they were sick—
I rwore sackcloth;
I safflicted myself with fasting;
I ubowed down in mourning.
vwretches whom I did not know
16 like profane mockers at a feast,6
they wgnash at me with their teeth.
17 How long, O Lord, will you xlook on?
ymy precious life from the lions!
18 I will thank you in zthe great congregation;
19 aLet not those rejoice over me
who are bwrongfully my foes,
and let not those cwink the eye
21 They fopen wide their mouths against me;
they say, g“Aha, Aha!
O Lord, jbe not far from me!
24 mVindicate me, O Lord, my God,
and nlet them not rejoice over me!
o“Aha, our heart's desire!”
Let them not say, p“We have swallowed him up.”
26 Let them be qput to shame and disappointed altogether
Let them be rclothed with shame and dishonor
who smagnify themselves against me!
tand say evermore,
u“Great is the Lord,
who vdelights in the welfare of his servant!”
28 Then my wtongue shall tell of your righteousness
13 Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from lthe four horns of the golden altar before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release mthe four angels who are bound at nthe great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, were released oto kill a third of mankind. 16 The number of pmounted troops was qtwice ten thousand times ten thousand; rI heard their number. 17 And this is how I saw the horses in my vision and those who rode them: they wore breastplates the color of fire and of sapphire1 and of sulfur, and the heads of the horses were slike lions' heads, and fire and smoke and sulfur came out of their mouths. 18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulfur coming out of their mouths. 19 For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents with heads, and by means of them they wound.
20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, tdid not repent of uthe works of their hands nor give up worshiping vdemons wand idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, 21 nor did they repent of their murders or their xsorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.
38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus1 entered a village. And a woman named bMartha cwelcomed him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called bMary, who dsat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are eanxious and troubled about many things, 42 but one thing is necessary.2 Mary has chosen fthe good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”
