Genesis chapter 25

1
Now Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah.
2
She bore to him Zimran and Jokshan and Medan and Midian and Ishbak and Shuah.
3
Jokshan became the father of Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim and Letushim and Leummim.
4
The sons of Midian [were] Ephah and Epher and Hanoch and Abida and Eldaah. All these [were] the sons of Keturah.
5
Now Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac;
6
but to the sons of his concubines, Abraham gave gifts while he was still living, and sent them away from his son Isaac eastward, to the land of the east.
7
These are all the years of Abraham's life that he lived, one hundred and seventy-five years.
8
Abraham breathed his last and died in a ripe old age, an old man and satisfied [with life]; and he was gathered to his people.
9
Then his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, facing Mamre,
10
the field which Abraham purchased from the sons of Heth; there Abraham was buried with Sarah his wife.
11
It came about after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac lived by Beer-lahai-roi.
12
Now these are [the records of] the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's maid, bore to Abraham;
13
and these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, in the order of their birth: Nebaioth, the firstborn of Ishmael, and Kedar and Adbeel and Mibsam
14
and Mishma and Dumah and Massa,
15
Hadad and Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah.
16
These are the sons of Ishmael and these are their names, by their villages, and by their camps; twelve princes according to their tribes.
17
These are the years of the life of Ishmael, one hundred and thirty-seven years; and he breathed his last and died, and was gathered to his people.
18
They settled from Havilah to Shur which is east of Egypt as one goes toward Assyria; he settled in defiance of all his relatives.
19
Now these are [the records of] the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham became the father of Isaac;
20
and Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean of Paddan-aram, the sister of Laban the Aramean, to be his wife.
21
Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren; and the LORD answered him and Rebekah his wife conceived.
22
But the children struggled together within her; and she said, "If it is so, why then am I [this way]?" So she went to inquire of the LORD.
23
The LORD said to her, "Two nations are in your womb; And two peoples will be separated from your body; And one people shall be stronger than the other; And the older shall serve the younger."
24
When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
25
Now the first came forth red, all over like a hairy garment; and they named him Esau.
26
Afterward his brother came forth with his hand holding on to Esau's heel, so his name was called Jacob; and Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them.
27
When the boys grew up, Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the field, but Jacob was a peaceful man, living in tents.
28
Now Isaac loved Esau, because he had a taste for game, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
29
When Jacob had cooked stew, Esau came in from the field and he was famished;
30
and Esau said to Jacob, "Please let me have a swallow of that red stuff there, for I am famished." Therefore his name was called Edom.
31
But Jacob said, "First sell me your birthright."
32
Esau said, "Behold, I am about to die; so of what [use] then is the birthright to me?"
33
And Jacob said, "First swear to me"; so he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.
34
Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew; and he ate and drank, and rose and went on his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.

Genesis chapter 26

1
Now there was a famine in the land, besides the previous famine that had occurred in the days of Abraham. So Isaac went to Gerar, to Abimelech king of the Philistines.
2
The LORD appeared to him and said, "Do not go down to Egypt; stay in the land of which I shall tell you.
3
"Sojourn in this land and I will be with you and bless you, for to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands, and I will establish the oath which I swore to your father Abraham.
4
"I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall be blessed;
5
because Abraham obeyed Me and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes and My laws."
6
So Isaac lived in Gerar.
7
When the men of the place asked about his wife, he said, "She is my sister," for he was afraid to say, "my wife," [thinking], "the men of the place might kill me on account of Rebekah, for she is beautiful."
8
It came about, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out through a window, and saw, and behold, Isaac was caressing his wife Rebekah.
9
Then Abimelech called Isaac and said, "Behold, certainly she is your wife! How then did you say, 'She is my sister '?" And Isaac said to him, "Because I said, 'I might die on account of her.'"
10
Abimelech said, "What is this you have done to us? One of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us."
11
So Abimelech charged all the people, saying, "He who touches this man or his wife shall surely be put to death."
12
Now Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. And the LORD blessed him,
13
and the man became rich, and continued to grow richer until he became very wealthy;
14
for he had possessions of flocks and herds and a great household, so that the Philistines envied him.
15
Now all the wells which his father's servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines stopped up by filling them with earth.
16
Then Abimelech said to Isaac, "Go away from us, for you are too powerful for us."
17
And Isaac departed from there and camped in the valley of Gerar, and settled there.
18
Then Isaac dug again the wells of water which had been dug in the days of his father Abraham, for the Philistines had stopped them up after the death of Abraham; and he gave them the same names which his father had given them.
19
But when Isaac's servants dug in the valley and found there a well of flowing water,
20
the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with the herdsmen of Isaac, saying, "The water is ours!" So he named the well Esek, because they contended with him.
21
Then they dug another well, and they quarreled over it too, so he named it Sitnah.
22
He moved away from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it; so he named it Rehoboth, for he said, "At last the LORD has made room for us, and we will be fruitful in the land."
23
Then he went up from there to Beersheba.
24
The LORD appeared to him the same night and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham; Do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you, and multiply your descendants, For the sake of My servant Abraham."
25
So he built an altar there and called upon the name of the LORD, and pitched his tent there; and there Isaac's servants dug a well.
26
Then Abimelech came to him from Gerar with his adviser Ahuzzath and Phicol the commander of his army.
27
Isaac said to them, "Why have you come to me, since you hate me and have sent me away from you?"
28
They said, "We see plainly that the LORD has been with you; so we said, 'Let there now be an oath between us, [even] between you and us, and let us make a covenant with you,
29
that you will do us no harm, just as we have not touched you and have done to you nothing but good and have sent you away in peace. You are now the blessed of the LORD.'"
30
Then he made them a feast, and they ate and drank.
31
In the morning they arose early and exchanged oaths; then Isaac sent them away and they departed from him in peace.
32
Now it came about on the same day, that Isaac's servants came in and told him about the well which they had dug, and said to him, "We have found water."
33
So he called it Shibah; therefore the name of the city is Beersheba to this day.
34
When Esau was forty years old he married Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite;
35
and they brought grief to Isaac and Rebekah.

Psalm chapter 6

1
For the choir director; with stringed instruments, upon an eight-string lyre. A Psalm of David. O LORD, do not rebuke me in Your anger, Nor chasten me in Your wrath.
2
Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I [am] pining away; Heal me, O LORD, for my bones are dismayed.
3
And my soul is greatly dismayed; But You, O LORD-- how long?
4
Return, O LORD, rescue my soul; Save me because of Your lovingkindness.
5
For there is no mention of You in death; In Sheol who will give You thanks?
6
I am weary with my sighing; Every night I make my bed swim, I dissolve my couch with my tears.
7
My eye has wasted away with grief; It has become old because of all my adversaries.
8
Depart from me, all you who do iniquity, For the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping.
9
The LORD has heard my supplication, The LORD receives my prayer.
10
All my enemies will be ashamed and greatly dismayed; They shall turn back, they will suddenly be ashamed.

Luke chapter 10

1
Now after this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them in pairs ahead of Him to every city and place where He Himself was going to come.
2
And He was saying to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.
3
"Go; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.
4
"Carry no money belt, no bag, no shoes; and greet no one on the way.
5
"Whatever house you enter, first say, 'Peace [be] to this house.'
6
"If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you.
7
"Stay in that house, eating and drinking what they give you; for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not keep moving from house to house.
8
"Whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is set before you;
9
and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them, 'The kingdom of God has come near to you.'
10
"But whatever city you enter and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say,
11
'Even the dust of your city which clings to our feet we wipe off [in protest] against you; yet be sure of this, that the kingdom of God has come near.'
12
"I say to you, it will be more tolerable in that day for Sodom than for that city.
13
"Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had been performed in Tyre and Sidon which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
14
"But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment than for you.
15
"And you, Capernaum, will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will be brought down to Hades!
16
"The one who listens to you listens to Me, and the one who rejects you rejects Me; and he who rejects Me rejects the One who sent Me."
17
The seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name."
18
And He said to them, "I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.
19
"Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.
20
"Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven."
21
At that very time He rejoiced greatly in the Holy Spirit, and said, "I praise You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from [the] wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight.
22
"All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal [Him]."
23
Turning to the disciples, He said privately, "Blessed [are] the eyes which see the things you see,
24
for I say to you, that many prophets and kings wished to see the things which you see, and did not see [them], and to hear the things which you hear, and did not hear [them]."
25
And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
26
And He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?"
27
And he answered, "YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF."
28
And He said to him, "You have answered correctly; DO THIS AND YOU WILL LIVE."
29
But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
30
Jesus replied and said, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead.
31
"And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32
"Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
33
"But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion,
34
and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on [them]; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
35
"On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, 'Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you.'
36
"Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers' [hands]?"
37
And he said, "The one who showed mercy toward him." Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do the same."
38
Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home.
39
She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord's feet, listening to His word.
40
But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up [to Him] and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me."
41
But the Lord answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things;
42
but [only] one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her."
