102 zHear my prayer, O Lord;
let my cry acome to you!
2 bDo not hide your face from me
in cthe day of my distress!
dIncline your ear to me;
3 For my days gpass away like smoke,
and my hbones burn like a furnace.
I kforget to eat my bread.
my lbones cling to my flesh.
6 I am like ma desert owl of the wilderness,
like an owl1 of the waste places;
7 I nlie awake;
and qmingle tears with my drink,
11 My days are like tan evening shadow;
I jwither away like grass.
12 But you, O Lord, are uenthroned forever;
you vare remembered throughout all generations.
ythe appointed time has come.
14 For your servants hold her zstones dear
15 Nations will afear the name of the Lord,
and all bthe kings of the earth will fear your glory.
16 For the Lord cbuilds up Zion;
he dappears in his glory;
17 he eregards the prayer of the destitute
so that ha people yet to be created may praise the Lord:
19 that he ilooked down from his holy height;
20 to hear jthe groans of the prisoners,
to set free kthose who were doomed to die,
21 that they may ldeclare in Zion the name of the Lord,
22 when mpeoples gather together,
he nhas shortened my days.
24 “O my God,” oI say, “take me not away
pyou whose years endure
25 qOf old you laid the foundation of the earth,
and rthe heavens are the work of your hands.
27 but uyou are the same, and your years have no end.
xtheir offspring shall be established before you.
2 Let ithe redeemed of the Lord say so,
3 and kgathered in from the lands,
4 Some lwandered in desert wastes,
finding no way mto a city to dwell in;
their soul nfainted within them.
6 Then they ocried to the Lord in their trouble,
7 He led them by pa straight way
till they reached ma city to dwell in.
8 qLet them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
9 For he rsatisfies the longing soul,
sand the hungry soul he fills with good things.
prisoners in vaffliction and in irons,
11 for they whad rebelled against the words of God,
and xspurned the counsel of the Most High.
they fell down, ywith none to help.
13 zThen they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
14 He brought them out of adarkness and the shadow of death,
and bburst their bonds apart.
15 cLet them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
16 For he dshatters the doors of bronze
17 Some were efools through their sinful ways,
18 fthey loathed any kind of food,
19 iThen they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and ldelivered them from their destruction.
21 mLet them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
22 And let them noffer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
23 Some qwent down to the sea in ships,
their courage tmelted away in their evil plight;
27 they reeled and ustaggered like drunken men
28 wThen they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
29 He xmade the storm be still,
30 Then they were glad that the waters3 were quiet,
31 yLet them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
2 mNow there was no water for the congregation. nAnd they assembled themselves together against Moses and against Aaron. 3 And the people oquarreled with Moses and said, “Would that we had perished pwhen our brothers perished before the Lord! 4 Why have you brought the assembly of the Lord into this wilderness, that we should die here, both we and our cattle? 5 And qwhy have you made us come up out of Egypt to bring us to this evil place? It is no place for grain or figs or vines or pomegranates, and there is no water to drink.” 6 Then Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly to the entrance of the tent of meeting and rfell on their faces. sAnd the glory of the Lord appeared to them, 7 and the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 8 t“Take the staff, and assemble the congregation, you and Aaron your brother, and tell the rock before their eyes to yield its water. So uyou shall bring water out of the rock for them and give drink to the congregation and their cattle.” 9 And Moses took the staff vfrom before the Lord, as he commanded him.
10 Then Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock, and he said to them, w“Hear now, you rebels: shall we bring water for you out of this rock?” 11 And Moses lifted up his hand and struck the rock with his staff twice, uand water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their livestock. 12 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because xyou did not believe in me, yto uphold me as holy in the eyes of the people of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land that I have given them.” 13 zThese are the waters of Meribah,1 where the people of Israel quarreled with the Lord, and through them he showed himself holy.
12 Therefore, just as tsin came into the world through one man, and udeath through sin, and vso death spread to all men1 because wall sinned—13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but xsin is not counted where there is no law. 14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not ylike the transgression of Adam, zwho was a type of athe one who was to come.
15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for bmany. 16 And the free gift is not like the result of that one man's sin. For cthe judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought djustification. 17 For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness ereign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.
18 Therefore, as one trespass2 led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness3 leads to justification and life for fall men. 19 For as by the one man's gdisobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's hobedience the many will be made righteous. 20 Now ithe law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, jgrace abounded all the more, 21 so that, kas sin reigned in death, lgrace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
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.
