1 Samuel chapter 19

1
Now Saul told Jonathan his son and all his servants to put David to death. But Jonathan, Saul's son, greatly delighted in David.
2
So Jonathan told David saying, "Saul my father is seeking to put you to death. Now therefore, please be on guard in the morning, and stay in a secret place and hide yourself.
3
"I will go out and stand beside my father in the field where you are, and I will speak with my father about you; if I find out anything, then I will tell you."
4
Then Jonathan spoke well of David to Saul his father and said to him, "Do not let the king sin against his servant David, since he has not sinned against you, and since his deeds [have been] very beneficial to you.
5
"For he took his life in his hand and struck the Philistine, and the LORD brought about a great deliverance for all Israel; you saw [it] and rejoiced. Why then will you sin against innocent blood by putting David to death without a cause?"
6
Saul listened to the voice of Jonathan, and Saul vowed, "As the LORD lives, he shall not be put to death."
7
Then Jonathan called David, and Jonathan told him all these words. And Jonathan brought David to Saul, and he was in his presence as formerly.
8
When there was war again, David went out and fought with the Philistines and defeated them with great slaughter, so that they fled before him.
9
Now there was an evil spirit from the LORD on Saul as he was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand, and David was playing [the harp] with [his] hand.
10
Saul tried to pin David to the wall with the spear, but he slipped away out of Saul's presence, so that he stuck the spear into the wall. And David fled and escaped that night.
11
Then Saul sent messengers to David's house to watch him, in order to put him to death in the morning. But Michal, David's wife, told him, saying, "If you do not save your life tonight, tomorrow you will be put to death."
12
So Michal let David down through a window, and he went out and fled and escaped.
13
Michal took the household idol and laid [it] on the bed, and put a quilt of goats' [hair] at its head, and covered [it] with clothes.
14
When Saul sent messengers to take David, she said, "He is sick."
15
Then Saul sent messengers to see David, saying, "Bring him up to me on his bed, that I may put him to death."
16
When the messengers entered, behold, the household idol [was] on the bed with the quilt of goats' [hair] at its head.
17
So Saul said to Michal, "Why have you deceived me like this and let my enemy go, so that he has escaped?" And Michal said to Saul, "He said to me, 'Let me go! Why should I put you to death?'"
18
Now David fled and escaped and came to Samuel at Ramah, and told him all that Saul had done to him. And he and Samuel went and stayed in Naioth.
19
It was told Saul, saying, "Behold, David is at Naioth in Ramah."
20
Then Saul sent messengers to take David, but when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, with Samuel standing [and] presiding over them, the Spirit of God came upon the messengers of Saul; and they also prophesied.
21
When it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they also prophesied. So Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they also prophesied.
22
Then he himself went to Ramah and came as far as the large well that is in Secu; and he asked and said, "Where are Samuel and David?" And [someone] said, "Behold, they are at Naioth in Ramah."
23
He proceeded there to Naioth in Ramah; and the Spirit of God came upon him also, so that he went along prophesying continually until he came to Naioth in Ramah.
24
He also stripped off his clothes, and he too prophesied before Samuel and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Therefore they say, "Is Saul also among the prophets?"

Psalm chapter 59

1
For the choir director; [set to] Al-tashheth. A Mikhtam of David, when Saul sent [men] and they watched the house in order to kill him. Deliver me from my enemies, O my God; Set me [securely] on high away from those who rise up against me.
2
Deliver me from those who do iniquity And save me from men of bloodshed.
3
For behold, they have set an ambush for my life; Fierce men launch an attack against me, Not for my transgression nor for my sin, O LORD,
4
For no guilt of [mine], they run and set themselves against me. Arouse Yourself to help me, and see!
5
You, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, Awake to punish all the nations; Do not be gracious to any [who are] treacherous in iniquity. Selah.
6
They return at evening, they howl like a dog, And go around the city.
7
Behold, they belch forth with their mouth; Swords are in their lips, For, [they say], "Who hears?"
8
But You, O LORD, laugh at them; You scoff at all the nations.
9
[Because of] his strength I will watch for You, For God is my stronghold.
10
My God in His lovingkindness will meet me; God will let me look [triumphantly] upon my foes.
11
Do not slay them, or my people will forget; Scatter them by Your power, and bring them down, O Lord, our shield.
12
[On account of] the sin of their mouth [and] the words of their lips, Let them even be caught in their pride, And on account of curses and lies which they utter.
13
Destroy [them] in wrath, destroy [them] that they may be no more; That [men] may know that God rules in Jacob To the ends of the earth. Selah.
14
They return at evening, they howl like a dog, And go around the city.
15
They wander about for food And growl if they are not satisfied.
16
But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength; Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your lovingkindness in the morning, For You have been my stronghold And a refuge in the day of my distress.
17
O my strength, I will sing praises to You; For God is my stronghold, the God who shows me lovingkindness.

Matthew chapter 4

1
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
2
And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry.
3
And the tempter came and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."
4
But He answered and said, "It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'"
5
Then the devil took Him into the holy city and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple,
6
and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, 'HE WILL COMMAND HIS ANGELS CONCERNING YOU'; and 'ON [their] HANDS THEY WILL BEAR YOU UP, SO THAT YOU WILL NOT STRIKE YOUR FOOT AGAINST A STONE.'"
7
Jesus said to him, "On the other hand, it is written, 'YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.'"
8
Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory;
9
and he said to Him, "All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me."
10
Then Jesus said to him, "Go, Satan! For it is written, 'YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'"
11
Then the devil left Him; and behold, angels came and [began] to minister to Him.
12
Now when Jesus heard that John had been taken into custody, He withdrew into Galilee;
13
and leaving Nazareth, He came and settled in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali.
14
[This was] to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet:
15
"THE LAND OF ZEBULUN AND THE LAND OF NAPHTALI, BY THE WAY OF THE SEA, BEYOND THE JORDAN, GALILEE OF THE GENTILES--
16
"THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SITTING IN DARKNESS SAW A GREAT LIGHT, AND THOSE WHO WERE SITTING IN THE LAND AND SHADOW OF DEATH, UPON THEM A LIGHT DAWNED."
17
From that time Jesus began to preach and say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
18
Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.
19
And He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men."
20
Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
21
Going on from there He saw two other brothers, James the [son] of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them.
22
Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.
23
Jesus was going throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people.
24
The news about Him spread throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He healed them.
25
Large crowds followed Him from Galilee and [the] Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judea and [from] beyond the Jordan.
