2 On the willows1 there
4 sHow shall we sing the Lord's song
tlet my right hand forget its skill!
6 Let my utongue stick to the roof of my mouth,
 137:2 Or poplars
7 Remember, O Lord, against the vEdomites
wthe day of Jerusalem,
how they said, x“Lay it bare, lay it bare,
8 O daughter of Babylon, ydoomed to be destroyed,
blessed shall he be who zrepays you
and adashes them against the rock!
144 Blessed be the Lord, my grock,
hwho trains my hands for war,
my kstronghold and my deliverer,
my lshield and he in whom I take refuge,
4 pMan is like a breath;
5 sBow your heavens, O Lord, and come down!
tTouch the mountains so that they smoke!
6 uFlash forth the lightning and scatter them;
usend out your arrows and rout them!
7 vStretch out your hand from on high;
wrescue me and deliver me from the many waters,
from the hand xof foreigners,
8 whose mouths speak ylies
and whose right hand is za right hand of falsehood.
9 I will sing aa new song to you, O God;
upon aa ten-stringed harp I will play to you,
who brescues David his servant from the cruel sword.
from the hand xof foreigners,
whose mouths speak ylies
be like cplants full grown,
our daughters like dcorner pillars
13 emay our granaries be full,
fproviding all kinds of produce;
suffering no mishap or failure in bearing;2
may there be no gcry of distress in our streets!
15 hBlessed are the people to whom such blessings fall!
iBlessed are the people whose God is the Lord!
104 lBless the Lord, O my soul!
O Lord my God, you are mvery great!
nYou are clothed with splendor and majesty,
he makes sthe clouds his chariot;
he rides on tthe wings of the wind;
4 he umakes his messengers winds,
5 He xset the earth on its foundations,
6 You ycovered it with the deep as with a garment;
7 At zyour rebuke they fled;
to the place that you cappointed for them.
9 You set da boundary that they may not pass,
so that they emight not again cover the earth.
11 they fgive drink to every beast of the field;
14 You cause ithe grass to grow for the livestock
and jplants for man to cultivate,
that he may bring forth kfood from the earth
15 and lwine to gladden the heart of man,
moil to make his face shine
and bread to nstrengthen man's heart.
18 The high mountains are for qthe wild goats;
the rocks are a refuge for rthe rock badgers.
20 tYou make darkness, and it is night,
21 uThe young lions roar for their prey,
and lie down in their vdens.
23 wMan goes out to his work
In xwisdom have you made them all;
ywhich teems with creatures innumerable,
27 These ball look to you,
to cgive them their food in due season.
when you dopen your hand, they are filled with good things.
when you gtake away their breath, they die
and hreturn to their dust.
and you jrenew the face of the ground.
31 May the glory of the Lord kendure forever;
may the Lord lrejoice in his works,
32 who looks on the earth and it mtrembles,
who ntouches the mountains and they smoke!
33 I will sing to the Lord oas long as I live;
34 May my pmeditation be pleasing to him,
35 Let qsinners be consumed from the earth,
rBless the Lord, O my soul!
sPraise the Lord!
11 wA day for the building of your walls!
12 In that day they1 will come to you,
yfrom Assyria and the cities of Egypt,
and from Egypt to zthe River,
afrom sea to sea and from mountain to mountain.
13 But bthe earth will be desolate
15 gAs in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt,
I will show them3 marvelous things.
16 hThe nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might;
ithey shall lay their hands on their mouths;
17 jthey shall lick the dust like a serpent,
kthey shall come trembling out of their strongholds;
lthey shall turn in dread to the Lord our God,
nfor the remnant of his inheritance?
oHe does not retain his anger forever,
19 He will pagain have compassion on us;
qhe will tread our iniquities underfoot.
20 sYou will show faithfulness to Jacob
tas you have sworn to our fathers
7 nThe end of all things is at hand; therefore obe self-controlled and sober-minded pfor the sake of your prayers. 8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since qlove covers a multitude of sins. 9 rShow hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 sAs each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, tas good stewards of God's varied grace: 11 whoever speaks, as one who speaks uoracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves vby the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything wGod may be glorified through Jesus Christ. xTo him belong glory and ydominion forever and ever. Amen.
12 Beloved, do not be surprised at zthe fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice ainsofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad bwhen his glory is revealed. 14 cIf you are insulted dfor the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory1 and of God rests upon you. 15 But elet none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or fas a meddler. 16 Yet eif anyone suffers as a gChristian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God din that name. 17 For it is time for judgment hto begin at the household of God; and iif it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who jdo not obey the gospel of God? 18 And
k“If the righteous is scarcely saved,
what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”2
19 Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will lentrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.
29 nAnd as they went out of Jericho, a great crowd followed him. 30 And behold, there were two blind men sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, “Lord,1 have mercy on us, oSon of David!” 31 The crowd prebuked them, telling them to be silent, but they cried out all the more, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 32 And stopping, Jesus called them and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” 33 They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” 34 And Jesus in pity touched their eyes, and immediately they recovered their sight and followed him.
