Isaiah 25:1-28:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
Praise to God
25 O Lord, You are my God.
6 And in this mountain
9 And it will be said in that day:
10 For on this mountain the hand of the Lord will rest,
A Song of Salvation
26 In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
“We have a strong city;
7 The way of the just is uprightness;
10 Let grace be shown to the wicked,
12 Lord, You will establish peace for us,
16 Lord, in trouble they have visited You,
19 Your dead shall live;
Take Refuge from the Coming Judgment
20 Come, my people, enter your chambers,
Israel Will Be Restored
27 In that day the Lord with His severe sword, great and strong,
The Restoration of Israel
2 In that day sing to her,
6 Those who come He shall cause to take root in Jacob;
7 Has He struck [r]Israel as He struck those who struck him?
10 Yet the fortified city will be desolate,
12 And it shall come to pass in that day
13 So it shall be in that day:
Woe to Ephraim and Jerusalem
28 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim,
5 In that day the Lord of hosts will be
7 But they also have erred through wine,
9 “Whom will he teach knowledge?
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue
Galatians 3:10-22 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Law Brings a Curse
10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.” 11 But that no one is [a]justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.” 12 Yet the law is not of faith, but “the man who does them shall live by them.”
13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
The Changeless Promise
15 Brethren, I speak in the manner of men: Though it is only a man’s covenant, yet if it is confirmed, no one annuls or adds to it. 16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, cannot annul the covenant that was confirmed before by God [b]in Christ, that it should make the promise of no effect. 18 For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no longer of promise; but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
Purpose of the Law
19 What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator does not mediate for one only, but God is one.
21 Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. 22 But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
Psalm 61 New King James Version (NKJV)
Assurance of God’s Eternal Protection
To the Chief Musician. On [a]a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David.
61 Hear my cry, O God;
3 For You have been a shelter for me,
5 For You, O God, have heard my vows;
8 So I will sing praise to Your name forever,
