Jeremiah 30:1-31:26 New International Version (NIV)
Restoration of Israel
30 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you. 3 The days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will bring my people Israel and Judah back from captivity[a] and restore them to the land I gave their ancestors to possess,’ says the Lord.”
4 These are the words the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah: 5 “This is what the Lord says:
“‘Cries of fear are heard—
8 “‘In that day,’ declares the Lord Almighty,
10 “‘So do not be afraid, Jacob my servant;
12 “This is what the Lord says:
“‘Your wound is incurable,
16 “‘But all who devour you will be devoured;
18 “This is what the Lord says:
“‘I will restore the fortunes of Jacob’s tents
23 See, the storm of the Lord
31 “At that time,” declares the Lord, “I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they will be my people.”
2 This is what the Lord says:
“The people who survive the sword
3 The Lord appeared to us in the past,[b] saying:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
7 This is what the Lord says:
“Sing with joy for Jacob;
10 “Hear the word of the Lord, you nations;
15 This is what the Lord says:
“A voice is heard in Ramah,
16 This is what the Lord says:
“Restrain your voice from weeping
18 “I have surely heard Ephraim’s moaning:
21 “Set up road signs;
23 This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “When I bring them back from captivity,[d] the people in the land of Judah and in its towns will once again use these words: ‘The Lord bless you, you prosperous city, you sacred mountain.’ 24 People will live together in Judah and all its towns—farmers and those who move about with their flocks. 25 I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”
26 At this I awoke and looked around. My sleep had been pleasant to me.
1 Timothy 2 New International Version (NIV)
Instructions on Worship
2 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time. 7 And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—and a true and faithful teacher of the Gentiles.
8 Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing. 9 I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, 10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
11 A woman[a] should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[b] she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15 But women[c] will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. A song.
1 He has founded his city on the holy mountain.
3 Glorious things are said of you,
7 As they make music they will sing,
