Psalms 64-67

Psa 64:1 Hear my voice, God, in my complaint. Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
Psa 64:2 Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked, from the noisy crowd of the ones doing evil;
Psa 64:3 who sharpen their tongue like a sword, and aim their arrows, deadly words,
Psa 64:4 to shoot innocent men from ambushes. They shoot at him suddenly and fearlessly.
Psa 64:5 They encourage themselves in evil plans. They talk about laying snares secretly. They say, "Who will see them?"
Psa 64:6 They plot injustice, saying, "We have made a perfect plan!" Surely man's mind and heart are cunning.
Psa 64:7 But God will shoot at them. They will be suddenly struck down with an arrow.
Psa 64:8 Their own tongues shall ruin them. All who see them will shake their heads.
Psa 64:9 All mankind shall be afraid. They shall declare the work of God, and shall wisely ponder what he has done.
Psa 64:10 The righteous shall be glad in Yahweh, and shall take refuge in him. All the upright in heart shall praise him!

Psa 65:1 Praise waits for you, God, in Zion. To you shall vows be performed.
Psa 65:2 You who hear prayer, to you all men will come.
Psa 65:3 Sins overwhelmed me, but you atoned for our transgressions.
Psa 65:4 Blessed is one whom you choose, and cause to come near, that he may live in your courts. We will be filled with the goodness of your house, your holy temple.
Psa 65:5 By awesome deeds of righteousness, you answer us, God of our salvation. You who are the hope of all the ends of the earth, of those who are far away on the sea;
Psa 65:6 Who by his power forms the mountains, having armed yourself with strength;
Psa 65:7 who stills the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the turmoil of the nations.
Psa 65:8 They also who dwell in faraway places are afraid at your wonders. You call the morning's dawn and the evening with songs of joy.
Psa 65:9 You visit the earth, and water it. You greatly enrich it. The river of God is full of water. You provide them grain, for so you have ordained it.
Psa 65:10 You drench its furrows. You level its ridges. You soften it with showers. You bless it with a crop.
Psa 65:11 You crown the year with your bounty. Your carts overflow with abundance.
Psa 65:12 The wilderness grasslands overflow. The hills are clothed with gladness.
Psa 65:13 The pastures are covered with flocks. The valleys also are clothed with grain. They shout for joy! They also sing.

Psa 66:1 Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!
Psa 66:2 Sing to the glory of his name! Offer glory and praise!
Psa 66:3 Tell God, "How awesome are your deeds! Through the greatness of your power, your enemies submit themselves to you.
Psa 66:4 All the earth will worship you, and will sing to you; they will sing to your name." Selah.
Psa 66:5 Come, and see God's deeds-- awesome work on behalf of the children of men.
Psa 66:6 He turned the sea into dry land. They went through the river on foot. There, we rejoiced in him.
Psa 66:7 He rules by his might forever. His eyes watch the nations. Don't let the rebellious rise up against him. Selah.
Psa 66:8 Praise our God, you peoples! Make the sound of his praise heard,
Psa 66:9 who preserves our life among the living, and doesn't allow our feet to be moved.
Psa 66:10 For you, God, have tested us. You have refined us, as silver is refined.
Psa 66:11 You brought us into prison. You laid a burden on our backs.
Psa 66:12 You allowed men to ride over our heads. We went through fire and through water, but you brought us to the place of abundance.
Psa 66:13 I will come into your temple with burnt offerings. I will pay my vows to you,
Psa 66:14 which my lips promised, and my mouth spoke, when I was in distress.
Psa 66:15 I will offer to you burnt offerings of fat animals, with the offering of rams, I will offer bulls with goats. Selah.
Psa 66:16 Come, and hear, all you who fear God. I will declare what he has done for my soul.
Psa 66:17 I cried to him with my mouth. He was extolled with my tongue.
Psa 66:18 If I cherished sin in my heart, the Lord wouldn't have listened.
Psa 66:19 But most certainly, God has listened. He has heard the voice of my prayer.
Psa 66:20 Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor his loving kindness from me.

Psa 67:1 May God be merciful to us, bless us, and cause his face to shine on us. Selah.
Psa 67:2 That your way may be known on earth, and your salvation among all nations,
Psa 67:3 let the peoples praise you, God. Let all the peoples praise you.
Psa 67:4 Oh let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you will judge the peoples with equity, and govern the nations on earth. Selah.
Psa 67:5 Let the peoples praise you, God. Let all the peoples praise you.
Psa 67:6 The earth has yielded its increase. God, even our own God, will bless us.
Psa 67:7 God will bless us. All the ends of the earth shall fear him.

Psalms 68-70

Psa 68:1 Let God arise! Let his enemies be scattered! Let them who hate him also flee before him.
Psa 68:2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away. As wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
Psa 68:3 But let the righteous be glad. Let them rejoice before God. Yes, let them rejoice with gladness.
Psa 68:4 Sing to God! Sing praises to his name! Extol him who rides on the clouds: to Yah, his name! Rejoice before him!
Psa 68:5 A father of the fatherless, and a defender of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
Psa 68:6 God sets the lonely in families. He brings out the prisoners with singing, but the rebellious dwell in a sun-scorched land.
Psa 68:7 God, when you went forth before your people, when you marched through the wilderness... Selah.
Psa 68:8 The earth trembled. The sky also poured down rain at the presence of the God of Sinai-- at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
Psa 68:9 You, God, sent a plentiful rain. You confirmed your inheritance, when it was weary.
Psa 68:10 Your congregation lived therein. You, God, prepared your goodness for the poor.
Psa 68:11 The Lord announced the word. The ones who proclaim it are a great company.
Psa 68:12 "Kings of armies flee! They flee!" She who waits at home divides the spoil,
Psa 68:13 while you sleep among the campfires, the wings of a dove sheathed with silver, her feathers with shining gold.
Psa 68:14 When the Almighty scattered kings in her, it snowed on Zalmon.
Psa 68:15 The mountains of Bashan are majestic mountains. The mountains of Bashan are rugged.
Psa 68:16 Why do you look in envy, you rugged mountains, at the mountain where God chooses to reign? Yes, Yahweh will dwell there forever.
Psa 68:17 The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands. The Lord is among them, from Sinai, into the sanctuary.
Psa 68:18 You have ascended on high. You have led away captives. You have received gifts among men, yes, among the rebellious also, that Yah God might dwell there.
Psa 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burdens, even the God who is our salvation. Selah.
Psa 68:20 God is to us a God of deliverance. To Yahweh, the Lord, belongs escape from death.
Psa 68:21 But God will strike through the head of his enemies, the hairy scalp of such a one as still continues in his guiltiness.
Psa 68:22 The Lord said, "I will bring you again from Bashan, I will bring you again from the depths of the sea;
Psa 68:23 That you may crush them, dipping your foot in blood, that the tongues of your dogs may have their portion from your enemies."
Psa 68:24 They have seen your processions, God, even the processions of my God, my King, into the sanctuary.
Psa 68:25 The singers went before, the minstrels followed after, in the midst of the ladies playing with tambourines,
Psa 68:26 "Bless God in the congregations, even the Lord in the assembly of Israel!"
Psa 68:27 There is little Benjamin, their ruler, the princes of Judah, their council, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.
Psa 68:28 Your God has commanded your strength. Strengthen, God, that which you have done for us.
Psa 68:29 Because of your temple at Jerusalem, kings shall bring presents to you.
Psa 68:30 Rebuke the wild animal of the reeds, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the peoples. Being humbled, may it bring bars of silver. Scatter the nations that delight in war.
Psa 68:31 Princes shall come out of Egypt. Ethiopia shall hurry to stretch out her hands to God.
Psa 68:32 Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth! Sing praises to the Lord! Selah.
Psa 68:33 To him who rides on the heaven of heavens, which are of old; behold, he utters his voice, a mighty voice.
Psa 68:34 Ascribe strength to God! His excellency is over Israel, his strength is in the skies.
Psa 68:35 You are awesome, God, in your sanctuaries. The God of Israel gives strength and power to his people. Praise be to God!

Psa 69:1 Save me, God, for the waters have come up to my neck!
Psa 69:2 I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold. I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
Psa 69:3 I am weary with my crying. My throat is dry. My eyes fail, looking for my God.
Psa 69:4 Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head. Those who want to cut me off, being my enemies wrongfully, are mighty. I have to restore what I didn't take away.
Psa 69:5 God, you know my foolishness. My sins aren't hidden from you.
Psa 69:6 Don't let those who wait for you be shamed through me, Lord Yahweh of Armies. Don't let those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me, God of Israel.
Psa 69:7 Because for your sake, I have borne reproach. Shame has covered my face.
Psa 69:8 I have become a stranger to my brothers, an alien to my mother's children.
Psa 69:9 For the zeal of your house consumes me. The reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.
Psa 69:10 When I wept and I fasted, that was to my reproach.
Psa 69:11 When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a byword to them.
Psa 69:12 Those who sit in the gate talk about me. I am the song of the drunkards.
Psa 69:13 But as for me, my prayer is to you, Yahweh, in an acceptable time. God, in the abundance of your loving kindness, answer me in the truth of your salvation.
Psa 69:14 Deliver me out of the mire, and don't let me sink. Let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters.
Psa 69:15 Don't let the flood waters overwhelm me, neither let the deep swallow me up. Don't let the pit shut its mouth on me.
Psa 69:16 Answer me, Yahweh, for your loving kindness is good. According to the multitude of your tender mercies, turn to me.
Psa 69:17 Don't hide your face from your servant, for I am in distress. Answer me speedily!
Psa 69:18 Draw near to my soul, and redeem it. Ransom me because of my enemies.
Psa 69:19 You know my reproach, my shame, and my dishonor. My adversaries are all before you.
Psa 69:20 Reproach has broken my heart, and I am full of heaviness. I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; for comforters, but I found none.
Psa 69:21 They also gave me gall for my food. In my thirst, they gave me vinegar to drink.
Psa 69:22 Let their table before them become a snare. May it become a retribution and a trap.
Psa 69:23 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they can't see. Let their backs be continually bent.
Psa 69:24 Pour out your indignation on them. Let the fierceness of your anger overtake them.
Psa 69:25 Let their habitation be desolate. Let no one dwell in their tents.
Psa 69:26 For they persecute him whom you have wounded. They tell of the sorrow of those whom you have hurt.
Psa 69:27 Charge them with crime upon crime. Don't let them come into your righteousness.
Psa 69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of life, and not be written with the righteous.
Psa 69:29 But I am in pain and distress. Let your salvation, God, protect me.
Psa 69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
Psa 69:31 It will please Yahweh better than an ox, or a bull that has horns and hoofs.
Psa 69:32 The humble have seen it, and are glad. You who seek after God, let your heart live.
Psa 69:33 For Yahweh hears the needy, and doesn't despise his captive people.
Psa 69:34 Let heaven and earth praise him; the seas, and everything that moves therein!
Psa 69:35 For God will save Zion, and build the cities of Judah. They shall settle there, and own it.
Psa 69:36 The children also of his servants shall inherit it. Those who love his name shall dwell therein.

Psa 70:1 Hurry, God, to deliver me. Come quickly to help me, Yahweh.
Psa 70:2 Let them be disappointed and confounded who seek my soul. Let those who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace.
Psa 70:3 Let them be turned because of their shame Who say, "Aha! Aha!"
Psa 70:4 Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. Let those who love your salvation continually say, "Let God be exalted!"
Psa 70:5 But I am poor and needy. Come to me quickly, God. You are my help and my deliverer. Yahweh, don't delay.

Sept. 15
Psalms 71-73

Psa 71:1 In you, Yahweh, I take refuge. Never let me be disappointed.
Psa 71:2 Deliver me in your righteousness, and rescue me. Turn your ear to me, and save me.
Psa 71:3 Be to me a rock of refuge to which I may always go. Give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.
Psa 71:4 Rescue me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
Psa 71:5 For you are my hope, Lord Yahweh; my confidence from my youth.
Psa 71:6 I have relied on you from the womb. You are he who took me out of my mother's womb. I will always praise you.
Psa 71:7 I am a marvel to many, but you are my strong refuge.
Psa 71:8 My mouth shall be filled with your praise, with your honor all the day.
Psa 71:9 Don't reject me in my old age. Don't forsake me when my strength fails.
Psa 71:10 For my enemies talk about me. Those who watch for my soul conspire together,
Psa 71:11 saying, "God has forsaken him. Pursue and take him, for no one will rescue him."
Psa 71:12 God, don't be far from me. My God, hurry to help me.
Psa 71:13 Let my accusers be disappointed and consumed. Let them be covered with disgrace and scorn who want to harm me.
Psa 71:14 But I will always hope, and will add to all of your praise.
Psa 71:15 My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day, though I don't know its full measure.
Psa 71:16 I will come with the mighty acts of the Lord Yahweh. I will make mention of your righteousness, even of yours alone.
Psa 71:17 God, you have taught me from my youth. Until now, I have declared your wondrous works.
Psa 71:18 Yes, even when I am old and gray-haired, God, don't forsake me, until I have declared your strength to the next generation, your might to everyone who is to come.
Psa 71:19 Your righteousness also, God, reaches to the heavens; you have done great things. God, who is like you?
Psa 71:20 You, who have shown us many and bitter troubles, you will let me live. You will bring us up again from the depths of the earth.
Psa 71:21 Increase my honor, and comfort me again.
Psa 71:22 I will also praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God. I sing praises to you with the lyre, Holy One of Israel.
Psa 71:23 My lips shall shout for joy! My soul, which you have redeemed, sings praises to you!
Psa 71:24 My tongue will also talk about your righteousness all day long, for they are disappointed, and they are confounded, who want to harm me.

Psa 72:1 God, give the king your justice; your righteousness to the royal son.
Psa 72:2 He will judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice.
Psa 72:3 The mountains shall bring prosperity to the people. The hills bring the fruit of righteousness.
Psa 72:4 He will judge the poor of the people. He will save the children of the needy, and will break the oppressor in pieces.
Psa 72:5 They shall fear you while the sun endures; and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
Psa 72:6 He will come down like rain on the mown grass, as showers that water the earth.
Psa 72:7 In his days, the righteous shall flourish, and abundance of peace, until the moon is no more.
Psa 72:8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, from the River to the ends of the earth.
Psa 72:9 Those who dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him. His enemies shall lick the dust.
Psa 72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the islands will bring tribute. The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
Psa 72:11 Yes, all kings shall fall down before him. All nations shall serve him.
Psa 72:12 For he will deliver the needy when he cries; the poor, who has no helper.
Psa 72:13 He will have pity on the poor and needy. He will save the souls of the needy.
Psa 72:14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence. Their blood will be precious in his sight.
Psa 72:15 They shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba. Men shall pray for him continually. They shall bless him all day long.
Psa 72:16 There shall be abundance of grain throughout the land. Its fruit sways like Lebanon. Let it flourish, thriving like the grass of the field.
Psa 72:17 His name endures forever. His name continues as long as the sun. Men shall be blessed by him. All nations will call him blessed.
Psa 72:18 Praise be to Yahweh God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.
Psa 72:19 Blessed be his glorious name forever! Let the whole earth be filled with his glory! Amen and amen.
Psa 72:20 This ends the prayers by David, the son of Jesse.

Psa 73:1 Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.
Psa 73:2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone. My steps had nearly slipped.
Psa 73:3 For I was envious of the arrogant, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
Psa 73:4 For there are no struggles in their death, but their strength is firm.
Psa 73:5 They are free from burdens of men, neither are they plagued like other men.
Psa 73:6 Therefore pride is like a chain around their neck. Violence covers them like a garment.
Psa 73:7 Their eyes bulge with fat. Their minds pass the limits of conceit.
Psa 73:8 They scoff and speak with malice. In arrogance, they threaten oppression.
Psa 73:9 They have set their mouth in the heavens. Their tongue walks through the earth.
Psa 73:10 Therefore their people return to them, and they drink up waters of abundance.
Psa 73:11 They say, "How does God know? Is there knowledge in the Most High?"
Psa 73:12 Behold, these are the wicked. Being always at ease, they increase in riches.
Psa 73:13 Surely in vain I have cleansed my heart, and washed my hands in innocence,
Psa 73:14 For all day long have I been plagued, and punished every morning.
Psa 73:15 If I had said, "I will speak thus;" behold, I would have betrayed the generation of your children.
Psa 73:16 When I tried to understand this, it was too painful for me;
Psa 73:17 Until I entered God's sanctuary, and considered their latter end.
Psa 73:18 Surely you set them in slippery places. You throw them down to destruction.
Psa 73:19 How they are suddenly destroyed! They are completely swept away with terrors.
Psa 73:20 As a dream when one wakes up, so, Lord, when you awake, you will despise their fantasies.
Psa 73:21 For my soul was grieved. I was embittered in my heart.
Psa 73:22 I was so senseless and ignorant. I was a brute beast before you.
Psa 73:23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you. You have held my right hand.
Psa 73:24 You will guide me with your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
Psa 73:25 Who do I have in heaven? There is no one on earth who I desire besides you.
Psa 73:26 My flesh and my heart fails, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Psa 73:27 For, behold, those who are far from you shall perish. You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to you.
Psa 73:28 But it is good for me to come close to God. I have made the Lord Yahweh my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.

1 Corinthians 9

1Co 9:1 Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Haven't I seen Jesus Christ, our Lord? Aren't you my work in the Lord?
1Co 9:2 If to others I am not an apostle, yet at least I am to you; for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord.
1Co 9:3 My defense to those who examine me is this.
1Co 9:4 Have we no right to eat and to drink?
1Co 9:5 Have we no right to take along a wife who is a believer, even as the rest of the apostles, and the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas?
1Co 9:6 Or have only Barnabas and I no right to not work?
1Co 9:7 What soldier ever serves at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard, and doesn't eat of its fruit? Or who feeds a flock, and doesn't drink from the flock's milk?
1Co 9:8 Do I speak these things according to the ways of men? Or doesn't the law also say the same thing?
1Co 9:9 For it is written in the law of Moses, "You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain." Is it for the oxen that God cares,
1Co 9:10 or does he say it assuredly for our sake? Yes, it was written for our sake, because he who plows ought to plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should partake of his hope.
1Co 9:11 If we sowed to you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we reap your fleshly things?
1Co 9:12 If others partake of this right over you, don't we yet more? Nevertheless we did not use this right, but we bear all things, that we may cause no hindrance to the Good News of Christ.
1Co 9:13 Don't you know that those who serve around sacred things eat from the things of the temple, and those who wait on the altar have their portion with the altar?
1Co 9:14 Even so the Lord ordained that those who proclaim the Good News should live from the Good News.
1Co 9:15 But I have used none of these things, and I don't write these things that it may be done so in my case; for I would rather die, than that anyone should make my boasting void.
1Co 9:16 For if I preach the Good News, I have nothing to boast about; for necessity is laid on me; but woe is to me, if I don't preach the Good News.
1Co 9:17 For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward. But if not of my own will, I have a stewardship entrusted to me.
1Co 9:18 What then is my reward? That, when I preach the Good News, I may present the Good News of Christ without charge, so as not to abuse my authority in the Good News.
1Co 9:19 For though I was free from all, I brought myself under bondage to all, that I might gain the more.
1Co 9:20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain those who are under the law;
1Co 9:21 to those who are without law, as without law (not being without law toward God, but under law toward Christ), that I might win those who are without law.
1Co 9:22 To the weak I became as weak, that I might gain the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I may by all means save some.
1Co 9:23 Now I do this for the sake of the Good News, that I may be a joint partaker of it.
1Co 9:24 Don't you know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run like that, that you may win.
1Co 9:25 Every man who strives in the games exercises self-control in all things. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible.
1Co 9:26 I therefore run like that, as not uncertainly. I fight like that, as not beating the air,
1Co 9:27 but I beat my body and bring it into submission, lest by any means, after I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected.

1 Corinthians 10

1Co 10:1 Now I would not have you ignorant, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
1Co 10:2 and were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
1Co 10:3 and all ate the same spiritual food;
1Co 10:4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of a spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ.
1Co 10:5 However with most of them, God was not well pleased, for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
1Co 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
1Co 10:7 Neither be idolaters, as some of them were. As it is written, "The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play."
1Co 10:8 Neither let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them committed, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell.
1Co 10:9 Neither let us test the Lord, as some of them tested, and perished by the serpents.
1Co 10:10 Neither grumble, as some of them also grumbled, and perished by the destroyer.
1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened to them by way of example, and they were written for our admonition, on whom the ends of the ages have come.
1Co 10:12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands be careful that he doesn't fall.
1Co 10:13 No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
1Co 10:14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.
1Co 10:15 I speak as to wise men. Judge what I say.
1Co 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, isn't it a sharing of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, isn't it a sharing of the body of Christ?
1Co 10:17 Because there is one loaf of bread, we, who are many, are one body; for we all partake of the one loaf of bread.
1Co 10:18 Consider Israel according to the flesh. Don't those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar?
1Co 10:19 What am I saying then? That a thing sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything?
1Co 10:20 But I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons, and not to God, and I don't desire that you would have fellowship with demons.
1Co 10:21 You can't both drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You can't both partake of the table of the Lord, and of the table of demons.
1Co 10:22 Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?
1Co 10:23 "All things are lawful for me," but not all things are profitable. "All things are lawful for me," but not all things build up.
1Co 10:24 Let no one seek his own, but each one his neighbor's good.
1Co 10:25 Whatever is sold in the butcher shop, eat, asking no question for the sake of conscience,
1Co 10:26 for "the earth is the Lord's, and its fullness."
1Co 10:27 But if one of those who don't believe invites you to a meal, and you are inclined to go, eat whatever is set before you, asking no questions for the sake of conscience.
1Co 10:28 But if anyone says to you, "This was offered to idols," don't eat it for the sake of the one who told you, and for the sake of conscience. For "the earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness."
1Co 10:29 Conscience, I say, not your own, but the other's conscience. For why is my liberty judged by another conscience?
1Co 10:30 If I partake with thankfulness, why am I denounced for that for which I give thanks?
1Co 10:31 Whether therefore you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1Co 10:32 Give no occasions for stumbling, either to Jews, or to Greeks, or to the assembly of God;
1Co 10:33 even as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of the many, that they may be saved.

Sept. 15
1 Corinthians 11

1Co 11:1 Be imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ.
1Co 11:2 Now I praise you, brothers, that you remember me in all things, and hold firm the traditions, even as I delivered them to you.
1Co 11:3 But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God.
1Co 11:4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head.
1Co 11:5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonors her head. For it is one and the same thing as if she were shaved.
1Co 11:6 For if a woman is not covered, let her also be shorn. But if it is shameful for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be covered.
1Co 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to have his head covered, because he is the image and glory of God, but the woman is the glory of the man.
1Co 11:8 For man is not from woman, but woman from man;
1Co 11:9 for neither was man created for the woman, but woman for the man.
1Co 11:10 For this cause the woman ought to have authority on her head, because of the angels.
1Co 11:11 Nevertheless, neither is the woman independent of the man, nor the man independent of the woman, in the Lord.
1Co 11:12 For as woman came from man, so a man also comes through a woman; but all things are from God.
1Co 11:13 Judge for yourselves. Is it appropriate that a woman pray to God unveiled?
1Co 11:14 Doesn't even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him?
1Co 11:15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her, for her hair is given to her for a covering.
1Co 11:16 But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither do God's assemblies.
1Co 11:17 But in giving you this command, I don't praise you, that you come together not for the better but for the worse.
1Co 11:18 For first of all, when you come together in the assembly, I hear that divisions exist among you, and I partly believe it.
1Co 11:19 For there also must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be revealed among you.
1Co 11:20 When therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not the Lord's supper that you eat.
1Co 11:21 For in your eating each one takes his own supper first. One is hungry, and another is drunken.
1Co 11:22 What, don't you have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you despise God's assembly, and put them to shame who don't have? What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I don't praise you.
1Co 11:23 For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night in which he was betrayed took bread.
1Co 11:24 When he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "Take, eat. This is my body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of me."
1Co 11:25 In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me."
1Co 11:26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
1Co 11:27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks the Lord's cup in a manner unworthy of the Lord will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
1Co 11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup.
1Co 11:29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn't discern the Lord's body.
1Co 11:30 For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep.
1Co 11:31 For if we discerned ourselves, we wouldn't be judged.
1Co 11:32 But when we are judged, we are punished by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
1Co 11:33 Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait one for another.
1Co 11:34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest your coming together be for judgment. The rest I will set in order whenever I come.
