Day 112 Day 113Day 114

1 Samuel chapter 27

1
But David thought to himself, "One of these days I will be destroyed by the hand of Saul. The best thing I can do is to escape to the land of the Philistines. Then Saul will give up searching for me anywhere in Israel, and I will slip out of his hand."
2
So David and the six hundred men with him left and went over to Achish son of Maoch king of Gath.
3
David and his men settled in Gath with Achish. Each man had his family with him, and David had his two wives: Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail of Carmel, the widow of Nabal.
4
When Saul was told that David had fled to Gath, he no longer searched for him.
5
Then David said to Achish, "If I have found favor in your eyes, let a place be assigned to me in one of the country towns, that I may live there. Why should your servant live in the royal city with you?"
6
So on that day Achish gave him Ziklag, and it has belonged to the kings of Judah ever since.
7
David lived in Philistine territory a year and four months.
8
Now David and his men went up and raided the Geshurites, the Girzites and the Amalekites. (From ancient times these peoples had lived in the land extending to Shur and Egypt.)
9
Whenever David attacked an area, he did not leave a man or woman alive, but took sheep and cattle, donkeys and camels, and clothes. Then he returned to Achish.
10
When Achish asked, "Where did you go raiding today?" David would say, "Against the Negev of Judah" or "Against the Negev of Jerahmeel" or "Against the Negev of the Kenites."
11
He did not leave a man or woman alive to be brought to Gath, for he thought, "They might inform on us and say, 'This is what David did.'" And such was his practice as long as he lived in Philistine territory.
12
Achish trusted David and said to himself, "He has become so odious to his people, the Israelites, that he will be my servant forever."

1 Chronicles chapter 9

1
All Israel was listed in the genealogies recorded in the book of the kings of Israel. The people of Judah were taken captive to Babylon because of their unfaithfulness.
2
Now the first to resettle on their own property in their own towns were some Israelites, priests, Levites and temple servants.
3
Those from Judah, from Benjamin, and from Ephraim and Manasseh who lived in Jerusalem were:
4
Uthai son of Ammihud, the son of Omri, the son of Imri, the son of Bani, a descendant of Perez son of Judah.
5
Of the Shilonites: Asaiah the firstborn and his sons.
6
Of the Zerahites: Jeuel. The people from Judah numbered 690.
7
Of the Benjamites: Sallu son of Meshullam, the son of Hodaviah, the son of Hassenuah;
8
Ibneiah son of Jeroham; Elah son of Uzzi, the son of Micri; and Meshullam son of Shephatiah, the son of Reuel, the son of Ibnijah.
9
The people from Benjamin, as listed in their genealogy, numbered 956. All these men were heads of their families.
10
Of the priests: Jedaiah; Jehoiarib; Jakin;
11
Azariah son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the official in charge of the house of God;
12
Adaiah son of Jeroham, the son of Pashhur, the son of Malkijah; and Maasai son of Adiel, the son of Jahzerah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Meshillemith, the son of Immer.
13
The priests, who were heads of families, numbered 1,760. They were able men, responsible for ministering in the house of God.
14
Of the Levites: Shemaiah son of Hasshub, the son of Azrikam, the son of Hashabiah, a Merarite;
15
Bakbakkar, Heresh, Galal and Mattaniah son of Mica, the son of Zicri, the son of Asaph;
16
Obadiah son of Shemaiah, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun; and Berekiah son of Asa, the son of Elkanah, who lived in the villages of the Netophathites.
17
The gatekeepers: Shallum, Akkub, Talmon, Ahiman and their brothers, Shallum their chief
18
being stationed at the King's Gate on the east, up to the present time. These were the gatekeepers belonging to the camp of the Levites.
19
Shallum son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, and his fellow gatekeepers from his family (the Korahites) were responsible for guarding the thresholds of the Tent just as their fathers had been responsible for guarding the entrance to the dwelling of the LORD.
20
In earlier times Phinehas son of Eleazar was in charge of the gatekeepers, and the LORD was with him.
21
Zechariah son of Meshelemiah was the gatekeeper at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
22
Altogether, those chosen to be gatekeepers at the thresholds numbered 212. They were registered by genealogy in their villages. The gatekeepers had been assigned to their positions of trust by David and Samuel the seer.
23
They and their descendants were in charge of guarding the gates of the house of the LORD-- the house called the Tent.
24
The gatekeepers were on the four sides: east, west, north and south.
25
Their brothers in their villages had to come from time to time and share their duties for seven-day periods.
26
But the four principal gatekeepers, who were Levites, were entrusted with the responsibility for the rooms and treasuries in the house of God.
27
They would spend the night stationed around the house of God, because they had to guard it; and they had charge of the key for opening it each morning.
28
Some of them were in charge of the articles used in the temple service; they counted them when they were brought in and when they were taken out.
29
Others were assigned to take care of the furnishings and all the other articles of the sanctuary, as well as the flour and wine, and the oil, incense and spices.
30
But some of the priests took care of mixing the spices.
31
A Levite named Mattithiah, the firstborn son of Shallum the Korahite, was entrusted with the responsibility for baking the offering bread.
32
Some of their Kohathite brothers were in charge of preparing for every Sabbath the bread set out on the table.
33
Those who were musicians, heads of Levite families, stayed in the rooms of the temple and were exempt from other duties because they were responsible for the work day and night.
34
All these were heads of Levite families, chiefs as listed in their genealogy, and they lived in Jerusalem.
35
Jeiel the father of Gibeon lived in Gibeon. His wife's name was Maacah,
36
and his firstborn son was Abdon, followed by Zur, Kish, Baal, Ner, Nadab,
37
Gedor, Ahio, Zechariah and Mikloth.
38
Mikloth was the father of Shimeam. They too lived near their relatives in Jerusalem.
39
Ner was the father of Kish, Kish the father of Saul, and Saul the father of Jonathan, Malki-Shua, Abinadab and Esh-Baal.
40
The son of Jonathan: Merib-Baal, who was the father of Micah.
41
The sons of Micah: Pithon, Melech, Tahrea and Ahaz.
42
Ahaz was the father of Jadah, Jadah was the father of Alemeth, Azmaveth and Zimri, and Zimri was the father of Moza.
43
Moza was the father of Binea; Rephaiah was his son, Eleasah his son and Azel his son.
44
Azel had six sons, and these were their names: Azrikam, Bokeru, Ishmael, Sheariah, Obadiah and Hanan. These were the sons of Azel.

Psalm chapter 141

1
A psalm of David. O LORD, I call to you; come quickly to me. Hear my voice when I call to you.
2
May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.
3
Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.
4
Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil, to take part in wicked deeds with men who are evildoers; let me not eat of their delicacies.
5
Let a righteous man strike me-- it is a kindness; let him rebuke me-- it is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it. Yet my prayer is ever against the deeds of evildoers;
6
their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs, and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken.
7
[They will say,] "As one plows and breaks up the earth, so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of the grave."
8
But my eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge-- do not give me over to death.
9
Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, from the traps set by evildoers.
10
Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.

Matthew chapter 10

1
He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.
2
These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John;
3
Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus;
4
Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
5
These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: "Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans.
6
Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.
7
As you go, preach this message: 'The kingdom of heaven is near.'
8
Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
9
Do not take along any gold or silver or copper in your belts;
10
take no bag for the journey, or extra tunic, or sandals or a staff; for the worker is worth his keep.
11
"Whatever town or village you enter, search for some worthy person there and stay at his house until you leave.
12
As you enter the home, give it your greeting.
13
If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you.
14
If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town.
15
I tell you the truth, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.
16
I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.
17
"Be on your guard against men; they will hand you over to the local councils and flog you in their synagogues.
18
On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles.
19
But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say,
20
for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
21
"Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death.
22
All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
23
When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. I tell you the truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
24
"A student is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.
25
It is enough for the student to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebub, how much more the members of his household!
26
"So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.
27
What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs.
28
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
29
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.
30
And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31
So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
32
"Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.
33
But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.
34
"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
35
For I have come to turn "'a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law--
36
a man's enemies will be the members of his own household.'
37
"Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me;
38
and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.
39
Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
40
"He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives the one who sent me.
41
Anyone who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet's reward, and anyone who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man will receive a righteous man's reward.
42
And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward."
