Psalm 105:37-45 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
37 He brought out Israel, laden with silver and gold,
39 He spread out a cloud as a covering,
42 For he remembered his holy promise
Praise the Lord.[a]
2 Corinthians 8:16-9:5 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
Titus sent to receive the collection
16 Thanks be to God, who put into the heart of Titus the same concern I have for you. 17 For Titus not only welcomed our appeal, but he is coming to you with much enthusiasm and on his own initiative. 18 And we are sending along with him the brother who is praised by all the churches for his service to the gospel. 19 What is more, he was chosen by the churches to accompany us as we carry the offering, which we administer in order to honour the Lord himself and to show our eagerness to help. 20 We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift. 21 For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of man.
22 In addition, we are sending with them our brother who has often proved to us in many ways that he is zealous, and now even more so because of his great confidence in you. 23 As for Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker among you; as for our brothers, they are representatives of the churches and an honour to Christ. 24 Therefore show these men the proof of your love and the reason for our pride in you, so that the churches can see it.
9 There is no need for me to write to you about this service to the Lord’s people. 2 For I know your eagerness to help, and I have been boasting about it to the Macedonians, telling them that since last year you in Achaia were ready to give; and your enthusiasm has stirred most of them to action. 3 But I am sending the brothers in order that our boasting about you in this matter should not prove hollow, but that you may be ready, as I said you would be. 4 For if any Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, we – not to say anything about you – would be ashamed of having been so confident. 5 So I thought it necessary to urge the brothers to visit you in advance and finish the arrangements for the generous gift you had promised. Then it will be ready as a generous gift, not as one grudgingly given.
Isaiah 10:20-13:22 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
The remnant of Israel
20 In that day the remnant of Israel,
24 Therefore this is what the Lord, the Lord Almighty, says:
‘My people who live in Zion,
26 The Lord Almighty will lash them with a whip,
28 They enter Aiath;
33 See, the Lord, the Lord Almighty,
The branch from Jesse
11 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,
6 The wolf will live with the lamb,
10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting-place will be glorious. 11 In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the surviving remnant of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush,[d] from Elam, from Babylonia,[e] from Hamath and from the islands of the Mediterranean.
12 He will raise a banner for the nations
Songs of praise
12 In that day you will say:
‘I will praise you, Lord.
4 In that day you will say:
‘Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
A prophecy against Babylon
13 A prophecy against Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz saw:
2 Raise a banner on a bare hilltop,
4 Listen, a noise on the mountains,
6 Wail, for the day of the Lord is near;
9 See, the day of the Lord is coming
14 Like a hunted gazelle,
17 See, I will stir up against them the Medes,
