Psalm chapter 8

1
To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David.
2
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is thy name in all the earth! Thou whose glory above the heavens is chanted
3
by the mouth of babes and infants, thou hast founded a bulwark because of thy foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.
4
When I look at thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars which thou hast established;
5
what is man that thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that thou dost care for him?
6
Yet thou hast made him little less than God, and dost crown him with glory and honor.
7
Thou hast given him dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet,
8
all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,
9
the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the sea. [ (Psalms 8:10) O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is thy name in all the earth! ]

Psalm chapter 9

1
To the choirmaster: according to Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.
2
I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will tell of all thy wonderful deeds.
3
I will be glad and exult in thee, I will sing praise to thy name, O Most High.
4
When my enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished before thee.
5
For thou hast maintained my just cause; thou hast sat on the throne giving righteous judgment.
6
Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked; thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.
7
The enemy have vanished in everlasting ruins; their cities thou hast rooted out; the very memory of them has perished.
8
But the LORD sits enthroned for ever, he has established his throne for judgment;
9
and he judges the world with righteousness, he judges the peoples with equity.
10
The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
11
And those who know thy name put their trust in thee, for thou, O LORD, hast not forsaken those who seek thee.
12
Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion! Tell among the peoples his deeds!
13
For he who avenges blood is mindful of them; he does not forget the cry of the afflicted.
14
Be gracious to me, O LORD! Behold what I suffer from those who hate me, O thou who liftest me up from the gates of death,
15
that I may recount all thy praises, that in the gates of the daughter of Zion I may rejoice in thy deliverance.
16
The nations have sunk in the pit which they made; in the net which they hid has their own foot been caught.
17
The LORD has made himself known, he has executed judgment; the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. [Higgaion. Selah]
18
The wicked shall depart to Sheol, all the nations that forget God.
19
For the needy shall not always be forgotten, and the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.
20
Arise, O LORD! Let not man prevail; let the nations be judged before thee! [ (Psalms 9:21) Put them in fear, O LORD! Let the nations know that they are but men! [Selah] ]

Psalm chapter 10

1
Why dost thou stand afar off, O LORD? Why dost thou hide thyself in times of trouble?
2
In arrogance the wicked hotly pursue the poor; let them be caught in the schemes which they have devised.
3
For the wicked boasts of the desires of his heart, and the man greedy for gain curses and renounces the LORD.
4
In the pride of his countenance the wicked does not seek him; all his thoughts are, "There is no God."
5
His ways prosper at all times; thy judgments are on high, out of his sight; as for all his foes, he puffs at them.
6
He thinks in his heart, "I shall not be moved; throughout all generations I shall not meet adversity."
7
His mouth is filled with cursing and deceit and oppression; under his tongue are mischief and iniquity.
8
He sits in ambush in the villages; in hiding places he murders the innocent. His eyes stealthily watch for the hapless,
9
he lurks in secret like a lion in his covert; he lurks that he may seize the poor, he seizes the poor when he draws him into his net.
10
The hapless is crushed, sinks down, and falls by his might.
11
He thinks in his heart, "God has forgotten, he has hidden his face, he will never see it."
12
Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thy hand; forget not the afflicted.
13
Why does the wicked renounce God, and say in his heart, "Thou wilt not call to account"?
14
Thou dost see; yea, thou dost note trouble and vexation, that thou mayest take it into thy hands; the hapless commits himself to thee; thou hast been the helper of the fatherless.
15
Break thou the arm of the wicked and evildoer; seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
16
The LORD is king for ever and ever; the nations shall perish from his land.
17
O LORD, thou wilt hear the desire of the meek; thou wilt strengthen their heart, thou wilt incline thy ear
18
to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more.

Psalm chapter 11

1
To the choirmaster. Of David.
2
In the LORD I take refuge; how can you say to me, "Flee like a bird to the mountains;
3
for lo, the wicked bend the bow, they have fitted their arrow to the string, to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;
4
if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do"?
5
The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD's throne is in heaven; his eyes behold, his eyelids test, the children of men.
6
The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked, and his soul hates him that loves violence.
7
On the wicked he will rain coals of fire and brimstone; a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup. [ (Psalms 11:8) For the LORD is righteous, he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face. ]

Psalm chapter 12

1
To the choirmaster: according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.
2
Help, LORD; for there is no longer any that is godly; for the faithful have vanished from among the sons of men.
3
Every one utters lies to his neighbor; with flattering lips and a double heart they speak.
4
May the LORD cut off all flattering lips, the tongue that makes great boasts,
5
those who say, "With our tongue we will prevail, our lips are with us; who is our master?"
6
"Because the poor are despoiled, because the needy groan, I will now arise," says the LORD; "I will place him in the safety for which he longs."
7
The promises of the LORD are promises that are pure, silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times.
8
Do thou, O LORD, protect us, guard us ever from this generation. [ (Psalms 12:9) On every side the wicked prowl, as vileness is exalted among the sons of men. ]

Psalm chapter 13

1
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
2
How long, O LORD? Wilt thou forget me for ever? How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
3
How long must I bear pain in my soul, and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
4
Consider and answer me, O LORD my God; lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
5
lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed over him"; lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.
6
But I have trusted in thy steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. [ (Psalms 13:7) I will sing to the LORD, because he has dealt bountifully with me. ]

Psalm chapter 14

1
To the choirmaster. Of David.
2
The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none that does good.
3
The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any that act wisely, that seek after God.
4
They have all gone astray, they are all alike corrupt; there is none that does good, no, not one.
5
Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call upon the LORD?
6
There they shall be in great terror, for God is with the generation of the righteous.
7
You would confound the plans of the poor, but the LORD is his refuge. [ (Psalms 14:8) O that deliverance for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, Israel shall be glad. ]

Mark chapter 13

1
And as he came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, "Look, Teacher, what wonderful stones and what wonderful buildings!"
2
And Jesus said to him, "Do you see these great buildings? There will not be left here one stone upon another, that will not be thrown down."
3
And as he sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
4
"Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign when these things are all to be accomplished?"
5
And Jesus began to say to them, "Take heed that no one leads you astray.
6
Many will come in my name, saying, `I am he!' and they will lead many astray.
7
And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed; this must take place, but the end is not yet.
8
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places, there will be famines; this is but the beginning of the birth-pangs.
9
"But take heed to yourselves; for they will deliver you up to councils; and you will be beaten in synagogues; and you will stand before governors and kings for my sake, to bear testimony before them.
10
And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.
11
And when they bring you to trial and deliver you up, do not be anxious beforehand what you are to say; but say whatever is given you in that hour, for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.
12
And brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death;
13
and you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
14
"But when you see the desolating sacrilege set up where it ought not to be (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains;
15
let him who is on the housetop not go down, nor enter his house, to take anything away;
16
and let him who is in the field not turn back to take his mantle.
17
And alas for those who are with child and for those who give suck in those days!
18
Pray that it may not happen in winter.
19
For in those days there will be such tribulation as has not been from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will be.
20
And if the Lord had not shortened the days, no human being would be saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom he chose, he shortened the days.
21
And then if any one says to you, `Look, here is the Christ!' or `Look, there he is!' do not believe it.
22
False Christs and false prophets will arise and show signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect.
23
But take heed; I have told you all things beforehand.
24
"But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light,
25
and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
26
And then they will see the Son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory.
27
And then he will send out the angels, and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.
28
"From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near.
29
So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that he is near, at the very gates.
30
Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away before all these things take place.
31
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
32
"But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
33
Take heed, watch; for you do not know when the time will come.
34
It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to be on the watch.
35
Watch therefore--for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning--
36
lest he come suddenly and find you asleep.
37
And what I say to you I say to all: Watch."
