1 Samuel chapter 25

1
Now Samuel died, and all Israel assembled and mourned for him; and they buried him at his home in Ramah. Then David moved down into the Desert of Maon.
2
A certain man in Maon, who had property there at Carmel, was very wealthy. He had a thousand goats and three thousand sheep, which he was shearing in Carmel.
3
His name was Nabal and his wife's name was Abigail. She was an intelligent and beautiful woman, but her husband, a Calebite, was surly and mean in his dealings.
4
While David was in the desert, he heard that Nabal was shearing sheep.
5
So he sent ten young men and said to them, "Go up to Nabal at Carmel and greet him in my name.
6
Say to him: 'Long life to you! Good health to you and your household! And good health to all that is yours!
7
"'Now I hear that it is sheep-shearing time. When your shepherds were with us, we did not mistreat them, and the whole time they were at Carmel nothing of theirs was missing.
8
Ask your own servants and they will tell you. Therefore be favorable toward my young men, since we come at a festive time. Please give your servants and your son David whatever you can find for them.'"
9
When David's men arrived, they gave Nabal this message in David's name. Then they waited.
10
Nabal answered David's servants, "Who is this David? Who is this son of Jesse? Many servants are breaking away from their masters these days.
11
Why should I take my bread and water, and the meat I have slaughtered for my shearers, and give it to men coming from who knows where?"
12
David's men turned around and went back. When they arrived, they reported every word.
13
David said to his men, "Put on your swords!" So they put on their swords, and David put on his. About four hundred men went up with David, while two hundred stayed with the supplies.
14
One of the servants told Nabal's wife Abigail: "David sent messengers from the desert to give our master his greetings, but he hurled insults at them.
15
Yet these men were very good to us. They did not mistreat us, and the whole time we were out in the fields near them nothing was missing.
16
Night and day they were a wall around us all the time we were herding our sheep near them.
17
Now think it over and see what you can do, because disaster is hanging over our master and his whole household. He is such a wicked man that no one can talk to him."
18
Abigail lost no time. She took two hundred loaves of bread, two skins of wine, five dressed sheep, five seahs of roasted grain, a hundred cakes of raisins and two hundred cakes of pressed figs, and loaded them on donkeys.
19
Then she told her servants, "Go on ahead; I'll follow you." But she did not tell her husband Nabal.
20
As she came riding her donkey into a mountain ravine, there were David and his men descending toward her, and she met them.
21
David had just said, "It's been useless-- all my watching over this fellow's property in the desert so that nothing of his was missing. He has paid me back evil for good.
22
May God deal with David, be it ever so severely, if by morning I leave alive one male of all who belong to him!"
23
When Abigail saw David, she quickly got off her donkey and bowed down before David with her face to the ground.
24
She fell at his feet and said: "My lord, let the blame be on me alone. Please let your servant speak to you; hear what your servant has to say.
25
May my lord pay no attention to that wicked man Nabal. He is just like his name-- his name is Fool, and folly goes with him. But as for me, your servant, I did not see the men my master sent.
26
"Now since the LORD has kept you, my master, from bloodshed and from avenging yourself with your own hands, as surely as the LORD lives and as you live, may your enemies and all who intend to harm my master be like Nabal.
27
And let this gift, which your servant has brought to my master, be given to the men who follow you.
28
Please forgive your servant's offense, for the LORD will certainly make a lasting dynasty for my master, because he fights the LORD's battles. Let no wrongdoing be found in you as long as you live.
29
Even though someone is pursuing you to take your life, the life of my master will be bound securely in the bundle of the living by the LORD your God. But the lives of your enemies he will hurl away as from the pocket of a sling.
30
When the LORD has done for my master every good thing he promised concerning him and has appointed him leader over Israel,
31
my master will not have on his conscience the staggering burden of needless bloodshed or of having avenged himself. And when the LORD has brought my master success, remember your servant."
32
David said to Abigail, "Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who has sent you today to meet me.
33
May you be blessed for your good judgment and for keeping me from bloodshed this day and from avenging myself with my own hands.
34
Otherwise, as surely as the LORD, the God of Israel, lives, who has kept me from harming you, if you had not come quickly to meet me, not one male belonging to Nabal would have been left alive by daybreak."
35
Then David accepted from her hand what she had brought him and said, "Go home in peace. I have heard your words and granted your request."
36
When Abigail went to Nabal, he was in the house holding a banquet like that of a king. He was in high spirits and very drunk. So she told him nothing until daybreak.
37
Then in the morning, when Nabal was sober, his wife told him all these things, and his heart failed him and he became like a stone.
38
About ten days later, the LORD struck Nabal and he died.
39
When David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, "Praise be to the LORD, who has upheld my cause against Nabal for treating me with contempt. He has kept his servant from doing wrong and has brought Nabal's wrongdoing down on his own head." Then David sent word to Abigail, asking her to become his wife.
40
His servants went to Carmel and said to Abigail, "David has sent us to you to take you to become his wife."
41
She bowed down with her face to the ground and said, "Here is your maidservant, ready to serve you and wash the feet of my master's servants."
42
Abigail quickly got on a donkey and, attended by her five maids, went with David's messengers and became his wife.
43
David had also married Ahinoam of Jezreel, and they both were his wives.
44
But Saul had given his daughter Michal, David's wife, to Paltiel son of Laish, who was from Gallim.

1 Samuel chapter 26

1
The Ziphites went to Saul at Gibeah and said, "Is not David hiding on the hill of Hakilah, which faces Jeshimon?"
2
So Saul went down to the Desert of Ziph, with his three thousand chosen men of Israel, to search there for David.
3
Saul made his camp beside the road on the hill of Hakilah facing Jeshimon, but David stayed in the desert. When he saw that Saul had followed him there,
4
he sent out scouts and learned that Saul had definitely arrived.
5
Then David set out and went to the place where Saul had camped. He saw where Saul and Abner son of Ner, the commander of the army, had lain down. Saul was lying inside the camp, with the army encamped around him.
6
David then asked Ahimelech the Hittite and Abishai son of Zeruiah, Joab's brother, "Who will go down into the camp with me to Saul?" "I'll go with you," said Abishai.
7
So David and Abishai went to the army by night, and there was Saul, lying asleep inside the camp with his spear stuck in the ground near his head. Abner and the soldiers were lying around him.
8
Abishai said to David, "Today God has delivered your enemy into your hands. Now let me pin him to the ground with one thrust of my spear; I won't strike him twice."
9
But David said to Abishai, "Don't destroy him! Who can lay a hand on the LORD's anointed and be guiltless?
10
As surely as the LORD lives," he said, "the LORD himself will strike him; either his time will come and he will die, or he will go into battle and perish.
11
But the LORD forbid that I should lay a hand on the LORD's anointed. Now get the spear and water jug that are near his head, and let's go."
12
So David took the spear and water jug near Saul's head, and they left. No one saw or knew about it, nor did anyone wake up. They were all sleeping, because the LORD had put them into a deep sleep.
13
Then David crossed over to the other side and stood on top of the hill some distance away; there was a wide space between them.
14
He called out to the army and to Abner son of Ner, "Aren't you going to answer me, Abner?" Abner replied, "Who are you who calls to the king?"
15
David said, "You're a man, aren't you? And who is like you in Israel? Why didn't you guard your lord the king? Someone came to destroy your lord the king.
16
What you have done is not good. As surely as the LORD lives, you and your men deserve to die, because you did not guard your master, the LORD's anointed. Look around you. Where are the king's spear and water jug that were near his head?"
17
Saul recognized David's voice and said, "Is that your voice, David my son?" David replied, "Yes it is, my lord the king."
18
And he added, "Why is my lord pursuing his servant? What have I done, and what wrong am I guilty of?
19
Now let my lord the king listen to his servant's words. If the LORD has incited you against me, then may he accept an offering. If, however, men have done it, may they be cursed before the LORD! They have now driven me from my share in the LORD's inheritance and have said, 'Go, serve other gods.'
20
Now do not let my blood fall to the ground far from the presence of the LORD. The king of Israel has come out to look for a flea-- as one hunts a partridge in the mountains."
21
Then Saul said, "I have sinned. Come back, David my son. Because you considered my life precious today, I will not try to harm you again. Surely I have acted like a fool and have erred greatly."
22
"Here is the king's spear," David answered. "Let one of your young men come over and get it.
23
The LORD rewards every man for his righteousness and faithfulness. The LORD delivered you into my hands today, but I would not lay a hand on the LORD's anointed.
24
As surely as I valued your life today, so may the LORD value my life and deliver me from all trouble."
25
Then Saul said to David, "May you be blessed, my son David; you will do great things and surely triumph." So David went on his way, and Saul returned home.

Psalm chapter 63

1
A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah. O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2
I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
3
Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
4
I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
6
On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.
7
Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8
My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.
9
They who seek my life will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10
They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.
11
But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God's name will praise him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

Matthew chapter 9

1
Jesus stepped into a boat, crossed over and came to his own town.
2
Some men brought to him a paralytic, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven."
3
At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, "This fellow is blaspheming!"
4
Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, "Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts?
5
Which is easier: to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and walk'?
6
But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins...." Then he said to the paralytic, "Get up, take your mat and go home."
7
And the man got up and went home.
8
When the crowd saw this, they were filled with awe; and they praised God, who had given such authority to men.
9
As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector's booth. "Follow me," he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.
10
While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew's house, many tax collectors and "sinners" came and ate with him and his disciples.
11
When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and 'sinners'?"
12
On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.
13
But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
14
Then John's disciples came and asked him, "How is it that we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?"
15
Jesus answered, "How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast.
16
"No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse.
17
Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."
18
While he was saying this, a ruler came and knelt before him and said, "My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live."
19
Jesus got up and went with him, and so did his disciples.
20
Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak.
21
She said to herself, "If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed."
22
Jesus turned and saw her. "Take heart, daughter," he said, "your faith has healed you." And the woman was healed from that moment.
23
When Jesus entered the ruler's house and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd,
24
he said, "Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep." But they laughed at him.
25
After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up.
26
News of this spread through all that region.
27
As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!"
28
When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" "Yes, Lord," they replied.
29
Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith will it be done to you";
30
and their sight was restored. Jesus warned them sternly, "See that no one knows about this."
31
But they went out and spread the news about him all over that region.
32
While they were going out, a man who was demon-possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus.
33
And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowd was amazed and said, "Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel."
34
But the Pharisees said, "It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons."
35
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.
36
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
37
Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
38
Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."
