Hosea 13-14 English Standard Version (ESV)
The Lord's Relentless Judgment on Israel
13 When Ephraim spoke, there was trembling;
4 But I am the Lord your God
9 He destroys[b] you, O Israel,
12 The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up;
14 I shall ransom them from the power of Sheol;
15 Though he may flourish among his brothers,
A Plea to Return to the Lord
14 Return, O Israel, to the Lord your God,
4 I will heal their apostasy;
8 O Ephraim, what have I to do with idols?
9 Whoever is wise, let him understand these things;
Psalm 100 English Standard Version (ESV)
His Steadfast Love Endures Forever
A Psalm for giving thanks.
100 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
3 Know that the Lord, he is God!
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
5 For the Lord is good;
Psalm 102 English Standard Version (ESV)
Do Not Hide Your Face from Me
A Prayer of one afflicted, when he is faint and pours out his complaint before the Lord.
102 Hear my prayer, O Lord;
3 For my days pass away like smoke,
12 But you, O Lord, are enthroned forever;
18 Let this be recorded for a generation to come,
23 He has broken my strength in midcourse;
25 Of old you laid the foundation of the earth,
Hebrews 5 English Standard Version (ESV)
5 For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. 2 He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is beset with weakness. 3 Because of this he is obligated to offer sacrifice for his own sins just as he does for those of the people. 4 And no one takes this honor for himself, but only when called by God, just as Aaron was.
5 So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him,
“You are my Son,
6 as he says also in another place,
“You are a priest forever,
7 In the days of his flesh, Jesus[a] offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. 9 And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, 10 being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.
Warning Against Apostasy
11 About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. 12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, 13 for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. 14 But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.
