10 All your works praise you,(A) Lord;
    your faithful people extol(B) you.(C)
11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom(D)
    and speak of your might,(E)
12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts(F)
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.(G)
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,(H)
    and your dominion endures through all generations.

The Lord is trustworthy(I) in all he promises(J)
    and faithful in all he does.[a]
14 The Lord upholds(K) all who fall
    and lifts up all(L) who are bowed down.(M)
15 The eyes of all look to you,
    and you give them their food(N) at the proper time.
16 You open your hand
    and satisfy the desires(O) of every living thing.

17 The Lord is righteous(P) in all his ways
    and faithful in all he does.(Q)
18 The Lord is near(R) to all who call on him,(S)
    to all who call on him in truth.

  1. Psalm 145:13 One manuscript of the Masoretic Text, Dead Sea Scrolls and Syriac (see also Septuagint); most manuscripts of the Masoretic Text do not have the last two lines of verse 13.

Death in the Pot

38 Elisha returned to Gilgal(A) and there was a famine(B) in that region. While the company of the prophets was meeting with him, he said to his servant, “Put on the large pot and cook some stew for these prophets.”

39 One of them went out into the fields to gather herbs and found a wild vine and picked as many of its gourds as his garment could hold. When he returned, he cut them up into the pot of stew, though no one knew what they were. 40 The stew was poured out for the men, but as they began to eat it, they cried out, “Man of God, there is death in the pot!” And they could not eat it.

41 Elisha said, “Get some flour.” He put it into the pot and said, “Serve it to the people to eat.” And there was nothing harmful in the pot.(C)

31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi,(A) eat something.”

32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat(B) that you know nothing about.”

33 Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?”

34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will(C) of him who sent me and to finish his work.(D) 35 Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.(E) 36 Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests(F) a crop for eternal life,(G) so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. 37 Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’(H) is true. 38 I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.”
