Genesis chapter 25

1
Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah.
2
She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah.
3
Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan; the descendants of Dedan were the Asshurites, the Letushites and the Leummites.
4
The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida and Eldaah. All these were descendants of Keturah.
5
Abraham left everything he owned to Isaac.
6
But while he was still living, he gave gifts to the sons of his concubines and sent them away from his son Isaac to the land of the east.
7
Altogether, Abraham lived a hundred and seventy-five years.
8
Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man and full of years; and he was gathered to his people.
9
His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah near Mamre, in the field of Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite,
10
the field Abraham had bought from the Hittites. There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah.
11
After Abraham's death, God blessed his son Isaac, who then lived near Beer Lahai Roi.
12
This is the account of Abraham's son Ishmael, whom Sarah's maidservant, Hagar the Egyptian, bore to Abraham.
13
These are the names of the sons of Ishmael, listed in the order of their birth: Nebaioth the firstborn of Ishmael, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam,
14
Mishma, Dumah, Massa,
15
Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah.
16
These were the sons of Ishmael, and these are the names of the twelve tribal rulers according to their settlements and camps.
17
Altogether, Ishmael lived a hundred and thirty-seven years. He breathed his last and died, and he was gathered to his people.
18
His descendants settled in the area from Havilah to Shur, near the border of Egypt, as you go toward Asshur. And they lived in hostility toward all their brothers.
19
This is the account of Abraham's son Isaac. Abraham became the father of Isaac,
20
and Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan Aram and sister of Laban the Aramean.
21
Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.
22
The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, "Why is this happening to me?" So she went to inquire of the LORD.
23
The LORD said to her, "Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger."
24
When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb.
25
The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau.
26
After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau's heel; so he was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.
27
The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was a quiet man, staying among the tents.
28
Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
29
Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished.
30
He said to Jacob, "Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I'm famished!" (That is why he was also called Edom.)
31
Jacob replied, "First sell me your birthright."
32
"Look, I am about to die," Esau said. "What good is the birthright to me?"
33
But Jacob said, "Swear to me first." So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob.
34
Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. So Esau despised his birthright.

Genesis chapter 26

1
Now there was a famine in the land-- besides the earlier famine of Abraham's time-- and Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines in Gerar.
2
The LORD appeared to Isaac and said, "Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land where I tell you to live.
3
Stay in this land for a while, and I will be with you and will bless you. For to you and your descendants I will give all these lands and will confirm the oath I swore to your father Abraham.
4
I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and will give them all these lands, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed,
5
because Abraham obeyed me and kept my requirements, my commands, my decrees and my laws."
6
So Isaac stayed in Gerar.
7
When the men of that place asked him about his wife, he said, "She is my sister," because he was afraid to say, "She is my wife." He thought, "The men of this place might kill me on account of Rebekah, because she is beautiful."
8
When Isaac had been there a long time, Abimelech king of the Philistines looked down from a window and saw Isaac caressing his wife Rebekah.
9
So Abimelech summoned Isaac and said, "She is really your wife! Why did you say, 'She is my sister'?" Isaac answered him, "Because I thought I might lose my life on account of her."
10
Then Abimelech said, "What is this you have done to us? One of the men might well have slept with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us."
11
So Abimelech gave orders to all the people: "Anyone who molests this man or his wife shall surely be put to death."
12
Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the LORD blessed him.
13
The man became rich, and his wealth continued to grow until he became very wealthy.
14
He had so many flocks and herds and servants that the Philistines envied him.
15
So all the wells that his father's servants had dug in the time of his father Abraham, the Philistines stopped up, filling them with earth.
16
Then Abimelech said to Isaac, "Move away from us; you have become too powerful for us."
17
So Isaac moved away from there and encamped in the Valley of Gerar and settled there.
18
Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his father Abraham, which the Philistines had stopped up after Abraham died, and he gave them the same names his father had given them.
19
Isaac's servants dug in the valley and discovered a well of fresh water there.
20
But the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac's herdsmen and said, "The water is ours!" So he named the well Esek, because they disputed with him.
21
Then they dug another well, but they quarreled over that one also; so he named it Sitnah.
22
He moved on from there and dug another well, and no one quarreled over it. He named it Rehoboth, saying, "Now the LORD has given us room and we will flourish in the land."
23
From there he went up to Beersheba.
24
That night the LORD appeared to him and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bless you and will increase the number of your descendants for the sake of my servant Abraham."
25
Isaac built an altar there and called on the name of the LORD. There he pitched his tent, and there his servants dug a well.
26
Meanwhile, Abimelech had come to him from Gerar, with Ahuzzath his personal adviser and Phicol the commander of his forces.
27
Isaac asked them, "Why have you come to me, since you were hostile to me and sent me away?"
28
They answered, "We saw clearly that the LORD was with you; so we said, 'There ought to be a sworn agreement between us'-- between us and you. Let us make a treaty with you
29
that you will do us no harm, just as we did not molest you but always treated you well and sent you away in peace. And now you are blessed by the LORD."
30
Isaac then made a feast for them, and they ate and drank.
31
Early the next morning the men swore an oath to each other. Then Isaac sent them on their way, and they left him in peace.
32
That day Isaac's servants came and told him about the well they had dug. They said, "We've found water!"
33
He called it Shibah, and to this day the name of the town has been Beersheba.
34
When Esau was forty years old, he married Judith daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and also Basemath daughter of Elon the Hittite.
35
They were a source of grief to Isaac and Rebekah.

Psalm chapter 6

1
For the director of music. With stringed instruments. According to sheminith. A psalm of David. O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
2
Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
3
My soul is in anguish. How long, O LORD, how long?
4
Turn, O LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.
5
No one remembers you when he is dead. Who praises you from the grave?
6
I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears.
7
My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.
8
Away from me, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.
9
The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10
All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed; they will turn back in sudden disgrace.

Luke chapter 10

1
After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go.
2
He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
3
Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.
4
Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.
5
"When you enter a house, first say, 'Peace to this house.'
6
If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you.
7
Stay in that house, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house.
8
"When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is set before you.
9
Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God is near you.'
10
But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say,
11
'Even the dust of your town that sticks to our feet we wipe off against you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God is near.'
12
I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.
13
"Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
14
But it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you.
15
And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths.
16
"He who listens to you listens to me; he who rejects you rejects me; but he who rejects me rejects him who sent me."
17
The seventy-two returned with joy and said, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name."
18
He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
19
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
20
However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."
21
At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.
22
"All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."
23
Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.
24
For I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it."
25
On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
26
"What is written in the Law?" he replied. "How do you read it?"
27
He answered: "'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, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
28
"You have answered correctly," Jesus replied. "Do this and you will live."
29
But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
30
In reply Jesus said: "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.
31
A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.
32
So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
33
But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.
34
He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him.
35
The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. 'Look after him,' he said, 'and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.'
36
"Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?"
37
The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy on him." Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise."
38
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.
39
She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said.
40
But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!"
41
"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things,
42
but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."
