Jesus Preaches in Galilee

35 (A)And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and (B)there he prayed. 36 And Simon and those who were with him searched for him, 37 and they found him and said to him, (C)“Everyone is looking for you.” 38 And he said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for (D)that is why I came out.” 39 (E)And (F)he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out demons.

Jesus Cleanses a Leper

40 (G)And a leper[a] came to him, imploring him, and (H)kneeling said to him, (I)“If you will, you can make me clean.” 41 Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him and said to him, “I will; be clean.” 42 And immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean. 43 And (J)Jesus[b] sternly charged him and sent him away at once, 44 and said to him, (K)“See that you say nothing to anyone, but go, (L)show yourself to the priest and (M)offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, (N)for a proof to them.” 45 (O)But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter (P)a town, but was out in (Q)desolate places, and (R)people were coming to him from every quarter.

God Will Judge with Equity

To the choirmaster: according to (A)Do Not Destroy. (B)A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

75 We give thanks to you, O God;
    we give thanks, for your name is (C)near.
We[a] recount your wondrous deeds.

“At (D)the set time that I appoint
    I will judge (E)with equity.
When the earth (F)totters, and all its inhabitants,
    it is I who keep steady its (G)pillars. Selah
I say to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’
    and to the wicked, (H)‘Do not lift up your horn;
do not lift up your horn on high,
    or speak with haughty neck.’”

For not from the east or from the west
    and not from the wilderness comes (I)lifting up,
but it is (J)God who executes judgment,
    (K)putting down one and lifting up another.
(L)For in the hand of the Lord there is (M)a cup
    with foaming wine, (N)well mixed,
and he pours out from it,
    and all the wicked of the earth
    shall (O)drain it down to the dregs.

But I will declare it forever;
    I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 (P)All the horns of the wicked I will cut off,
    (Q)but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.
