Isaiah 62:6-65:25 New King James Version (NKJV)
6 I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem;
8 The Lord has sworn by His right hand
10 Go through,
11 Indeed the Lord has proclaimed
The Lord in Judgment and Salvation
63 Who is this who comes from Edom,
“I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.”
2 Why is Your apparel red,
3 “I have trodden the winepress alone,
God’s Mercy Remembered
7 I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the Lord
11 Then he remembered the days of old,
14 As a beast goes down into the valley,
A Prayer of Penitence
15 Look down from heaven,
A Prayer for Help
64 Oh, that You would [g]rend the heavens!
6 But we are all like an unclean thing,
8 But now, O Lord,
The Righteousness of God’s Judgment
65 “I was sought by those who did not ask for Me;
6 “Behold, it is written before Me:
8 Thus says the Lord:
“As the new wine is found in the cluster,
11 “But you are those who forsake the Lord,
13 Therefore thus says the Lord God:
“Behold, My servants shall eat,
The Glorious New Creation
17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth;
20 “No more shall an infant from there live but a few days,
24 “It shall come to pass
Philippians 2:19-3:3 New King James Version (NKJV)
19 But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you shortly, that I also may be encouraged when I know your [a]state. 20 For I have no one like-minded, who will sincerely care for your state. 21 For all seek their own, not the things which are of Christ Jesus. 22 But you know his proven character, that as a son with his father he served with me in the gospel. 23 Therefore I hope to send him at once, as soon as I see how it goes with me. 24 But I trust in the Lord that I myself shall also come shortly.
25 Yet I considered it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker, and fellow soldier, but your messenger and the one who ministered to my need; 26 since he was longing for you all, and was distressed because you had heard that he was sick. 27 For indeed he was sick almost unto death; but God had mercy on him, and not only on him but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. 28 Therefore I sent him the more eagerly, that when you see him again you may rejoice, and I may be less sorrowful. 29 Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness, and hold such men in esteem; 30 because for the work of Christ he came close to death, [b]not regarding his life, to supply what was lacking in your service toward me.
All for Christ
3 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe.
2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation! 3 For we are the circumcision, who worship [c]God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,
Psalm 73 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Tragedy of the Wicked, and the Blessedness of Trust in God
A Psalm of Asaph.
73 Truly God is good to Israel,
4 For there are no [a]pangs in their death,
10 Therefore his people return here,
15 If I had said, “I will speak thus,”
18 Surely You set them in slippery places;
21 Thus my heart was grieved,
25 Whom have I in heaven but You?
27 For indeed, those who are far from You shall perish;
Proverbs 24:13-14 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 My son, eat honey because it is good,
