PSALM 35

A Psalm of David.

 

Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.

Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.

Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.

Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.

Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them.

Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.

For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.

Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.

And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in His salvation.

All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto Thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.

They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.

But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled [Or, afflicted] my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.

I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.

But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:

With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.

Lord, how long wilt Thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.

I will give Thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise Thee among much people.

Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.

For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.

This Thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.

Stir up Thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.

Judge me, O LORD my God, according to Thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.

Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.

Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.

Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.

And my tongue shall speak of Thy righteousness and of Thy praise all the day long.

Exodus 5

And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, “Let My people go, that they may hold a feast unto Me in the wilderness.”

And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go?

I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.

And they said, The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us go, we pray thee, three days’ journey into the desert, and sacrifice unto the LORD our God; lest He fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword.

And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your burdens.

And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many, and ye make them rest from their burdens.

And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying,

Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.

And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.

Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.

And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not give you straw.

Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of your work shall be diminished.

So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.

And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw.

And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh’s taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?

Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?

There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault is in thine own people.

But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD.

Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks.

And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish ought from your bricks of your daily task.

And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh:

And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you, and judge; because ye have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.

And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Lord, wherefore hast Thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that Thou hast sent me?

For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Thy name, he hath done evil to this people; neither hast Thou delivered Thy people at all (Exodus 5: 1-23).

Romans 10

Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, “THAT THE MAN WHICH DOETH THOSE THINGS SHALL LIVE BY THEM.”

But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, “SAY NOT IN THINE HEART, ‘WHO SHALL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN?’ (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)

Or, ‘WHO SHALL DESCEND INTO THE DEEP?’ (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)”

But what saith it? “THE WORD IS NIGH THEE, EVEN IN THY MOUTH, AND IN THY HEART”: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For the Scripture saith, “WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH ON HIM SHALL NOT BE ASHAMED.”

For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.

“FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.”

How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THEM THAT PREACH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE, AND BRING GLAD TIDINGS OF GOOD THINGS!”

But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, “LORD, WHO HATH BELIEVED OUR REPORT?”

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, “THEIR SOUND WENT INTO ALL THE EARTH, AND THEIR WORDS UNTO THE ENDS OF THE WORLD.”

But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, “I WILL PROVOKE YOU TO JEALOUSY BY THEM THAT ARE NO PEOPLE, AND BY A FOOLISH NATION I WILL ANGER YOU.”

But Esaias is very bold, and saith, “I WAS FOUND OF THEM THAT SOUGHT ME NOT; I WAS MADE MANIFEST UNTO THEM THAT ASKED NOT AFTER ME.”

But to Israel He saith, “ALL DAY LONG I HAVE STRETCHED FORTH MY HANDS UNTO A DISOBEDIENT AND GAINSAYING PEOPLE.” (Romans 10: 1-21)

Isaiah 65

“I am sought of them that asked not for Me; I am found of them that sought Me not: I said, ‘Behold Me, behold Me,’ unto a nation that was not called by My name.

“I have spread out My hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;

“A people that provoketh Me to anger continually to My face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;

“Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;

“Which say, ‘Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou.’ These are a smoke in My nose, a fire that burneth all the day.

“Behold, it is written before Me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,

“Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together,” saith the LORD, “which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed Me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.”

Thus saith the LORD, “As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, ‘Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it’: so will I do for My servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all.

“And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of My mountains: and Mine elect shall inherit it, and My servants shall dwell there.

“And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for My people that have sought Me.

“But ye are they that forsake the LORD, that forget My holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop [Or, Gad], and that furnish the drink offering unto that number [Or, Meni].

“Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before Mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.”

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, “Behold, My servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, My servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, My servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed:

“Behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.

“And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto My chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call His servants by another name:

“That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from Mine eyes.

“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

“But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

“And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

“There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

“And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

“They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of My people, and Mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

“They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.

“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

“The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,” saith the LORD (Isaiah 65: 1-25).

Isaiah 15

The burden of Moab. Because in the night Ar of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence; because in the night Kir of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence;

He is gone up to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: Moab shall howl over Nebo, and over Medeba: on all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard cut off.

In their streets they shall gird themselves with sackcloth: on the tops of their houses, and in their streets, every one shall howl, weeping abundantly.

And Heshbon shall cry, and Elealeh: their voice shall be heard even unto Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall cry out; his life shall be grievous unto him.

My heart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitives shall flee unto Zoar, an heifer of three years old: for by the mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of Horonaim they shall raise up a cry of destruction.

For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay is withered away, the grass faileth, there is no green thing.

Therefore the abundance they have gotten, and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the brook of the willows.

For the cry is gone round about the borders of Moab; the howling thereof unto Eglaim, and the howling thereof unto Beer-elim.

For the waters of Dimon shall be full of blood: for I will bring more upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapeth of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land (Isaiah 15: 1-9).

Mark 3

And He entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.

And they watched Him, whether He would heal him on the Sabbath Day; that they might accuse Him.

And He saith unto the man which had the withered hand, “Stand forth.”

And He saith unto them, “Is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath Day, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill?” But they held their peace.

And when He had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness [Or, blindness] of their hearts, He saith unto the man, “Stretch forth thine hand.” And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.

But Jesus withdrew Himself with His disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed Him, and from Judaea,

And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things He did, came unto Him.

And He spake to His disciples, that a small ship should wait on Him because of the multitude, lest they should throng Him.

For He had healed many; insomuch that they pressed [Or, rushed] upon Him for to touch Him, as many as had plagues.

And unclean spirits, when they saw Him, fell down before Him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.

And He straitly charged them that they should not make Him known.

And He goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto Him whom He would: and they came unto Him.

And He ordained twelve, that they should be with Him, and that He might send them forth to preach,

And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

And Simon He surnamed Peter;

And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and He surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The Sons of Thunder:

And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,

And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed Him: and they went into an house [Or, home].

And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.

And when His friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on Him: for they said, He is beside Himself.

And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth He out devils.

And He called them unto Him, and said unto them in parables, “How can Satan cast out Satan?

“And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

“And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

“And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

“No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

“Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

“But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation”:

Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

There came then His brethren and His mother, and, standing without, sent unto Him, calling Him.

And the multitude sat about Him, and they said unto Him, Behold, Thy mother and Thy brethren without seek for Thee.

And He answered them, saying, “Who is My mother, or My brethren?”

And He looked round about on them which sat about Him, and said, “Behold My mother and My brethren!

“For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is My brother, and My sister, and mother.” (Mark 3: 1-35)

Exodus 4

And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee.

And the LORD said unto him, “What is that in thine hand?” And he said, A rod.

And He said, “Cast it on the ground.” And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.

And the LORD said unto Moses, “Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail.” And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand:

“That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee.”

And the LORD said furthermore unto him, “Put now thine hand into thy bosom.” And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.

And He said, “Put thine hand into thy bosom again.” And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.

“And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign.

“And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land.

And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since Thou hast spoken unto Thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.

And the LORD said unto him, “Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?

“Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.”

And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray Thee, by the hand of him whom Thou wilt [Or, shouldest] send.

And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and He said, “Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.

“And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.

“And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God.

“And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do signs.”

And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren which are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.

And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian, “Go, return into Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought thy life.”

And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of God in his hand.

And the LORD said unto Moses, “When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.

“And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, ‘Thus saith the LORD, “Israel is My son, even My firstborn:

“And I say unto thee, ‘Let My son go, that he may serve Me’: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.” ’ ”

And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.

Then Zipporah took a sharp stone [Or, knife], and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me.

So He let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because of the circumcision.

And the LORD said to Aaron, “Go into the wilderness to meet Moses.” And he went, and met him in the mount of God, and kissed him.

And Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD who had sent him, and all the signs which He had commanded him.

And Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel:

And Aaron spake all the words which the LORD had spoken unto Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.

And the people believed: and when they heard that the LORD had visited the children of Israel, and that He had looked upon their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped (Exodus 4: 1-31).
