1 O Eternal One, lend an ear to my prayer and answer me, for I am weak and wanting. 2 Safeguard my soul, for I remain loyal to You. Save me, Your servant, who trusts in You, my God. 3 O Lord, please be merciful to me, as all day long I cry out to You. 4 Bring joy into the life of Your servant, for it’s only to You, O Lord, that I offer my soul. 5 O Lord, You are good and ready to forgive; Your loyal love flows generously over all who cry out to You. 6 O Eternal One, lend an ear and hear my prayer; listen to my pleading voice. 7 When times of trouble come, I will call to You because I know You will respond to me.
8 O Lord, You stand alone among the other gods; nothing they have done compares to Your wonderful works. 9 O Lord, all the peoples of earth—every nation You established— will come to You, bowing low to worship, and rightly honor Your great name. 10 For You are great, and Your works are wondrous; You are the one True God.
3 Tell him this is what I, the Eternal Lord, have to say:
Look, I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt. You are like a great river monster, snaking through the streams in the Nile, declaring, “I own the Nile. I made it, and it is mine.” 4 But I will set a hook in your jaws and make the fish of the Nile cling to your scales. I will haul you in out of your waterways, with all the fish clinging to your scales. 5 Then I will take you and leave you out in the desert, you and all the fish of your waters. You’ll collapse in the wide open space, but no one will bother to collect your remains Or bury you with your ancestors. You’ll be food for wild beasts of the earth and birds in the sky. 6 Then all who live in Egypt will know that I am the Eternal One. You have been nothing more than a staff made of wobbly reeds to the people of Israel. 7 When they took hold of you, looking for support, you splintered and tore their hands. When they leaned on you, you snapped in two, and they wrenched their backs because of you.[a]
53 After that dinner, things were never the same. The religious scholars and Pharisees put constant pressure on Jesus, 54 trying to trap Him and trick Him into saying things they could use to bring Him down.
12 The crowds at this time were packed in so tightly that thousands of people were stepping on each other. Jesus spoke to His disciples, knowing that the crowds could overhear.
Jesus: Guard yourselves from the yeast that puffs up the Pharisees—hypocrisy, false appearance, trying to look better than you really are.
2 Nothing is covered up that won’t be discovered; nothing is hidden that won’t be exposed. 3 Whatever a person says in the dark will be published in the light of day, and whatever a person whispers in private rooms will be broadcast from the housetops.
