John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Isaiah 51-53
[51:1] “Listen to me, you pursuers of justice,
      you who seek ADONAI:
      consider the rock from which you were cut,
      the quarry from which you were dug —
[2]  consider Avraham your father
      and Sarah, who gave birth to you;
      in that I called him when he was only one person,
      then blessed him and made him many.
[3]  For ADONAI will comfort Tziyon,
      will comfort all her ruined places,
      will make her desert like ‘Eden,
      her ‘Aravah like the garden of ADONAI.
      Joy and gladness will be there,
      thanksgiving and the sound of music.
[4]  “Pay attention to me, my people!
      My nation, listen to me!
      For Torah will go out from me;
      I will calm them with my justice
      as a light for the peoples.
[5]  My righteousness is at hand,
      my salvation goes out,
      my arms will judge the peoples.
      The coastlands are putting their hope in me,
      trusting in my arm.
[6]  “Raise your eyes toward the skies,
      look at the earth below.
      The skies will vanish like smoke,
      the earth will wear out like clothing.
      Those living on it will die like flies;
      but my salvation will be forever,
      and my justice will never end.
[7]  “Listen to me, you who know justice,
      you people who have my Torah in your heart:
      don’t be afraid of people’s taunts,
      don’t be upset by their insults.
[8]  For the moth will eat them up like clothing,
      the worm will eat them like wool;
      but my justice will be forever,
      and my salvation for all generations.”
[9]  Awake! Awake! Arm of ADONAI,
      clothe yourself with strength!
      Awake, as in days of old,
      as in ancient generations!
      Wasn’t it you who hacked Rahav to pieces,
      you who pierced the sea monster?*
[10]  Wasn’t it you who dried up the sea,
      the waters of the great deep;
      you who made the sea bottom a road
      for the redeemed to cross?
[11]  Those ransomed by ADONAI will return
      and come with singing to Tziyon;
      on their heads will be everlasting joy.
      They will acquire gladness and joy,
      while sorrow and sighing will flee.
[12]  “I, yes I, am the one who comforts you!
      Why are you afraid of a man, who must die;
      of a human being, who will wither like grass?
[13]  You have forgotten ADONAI, your maker,
      who stretched out the heavens
      and laid the foundations of the earth.
      Instead, you are in constant fear all day
      because of the oppressor’s rage,
      as he prepares to destroy!
      But where is the oppressor’s rage?
[14]  The captive will soon be set free;
      he will not die and go down to Sh’ol;
      on the contrary, his food supply will be secure.
[15]  For I am ADONAI your God,
      who stirs up the sea, who makes its waves roar —
      ADONAI-Tzva’ot is my name.
[16]  I have put my words in your mouth
      and covered you with the shadow of my hand,
      in order to plant the skies [anew],
      lay the foundations of the earth [anew]
      and say to Tziyon, ‘You are my people.’”
[17]  Awake! Awake! Stand up, Yerushalayim!
      At ADONAI’s hand you drank the cup of his fury;
      you have drained to the dregs
      the goblet of drunkenness.
[18]  There is no one to guide her
      among all the sons she has borne.
      Not one of all the children she raised
      is taking her by the hand.
[19]  These two disasters have overcome you —
      yet who will grieve with you? —
      plunder and destruction, famine and sword;
      by whom can I comfort you?
[20]  Your children lie helpless at every street corner,
      like an antelope trapped in a net;
      they are full of ADONAI’s fury,
      the rebuke of your God.
[21]  Therefore, please hear this in your affliction,
      you who are drunk, but not with wine;
[22]  this is what your Lord ADONAI says,
      your God, who defends his people:
      “Here, I have removed from your hand
      the cup of drunkenness,
      the goblet of my fury.
      You will never drink it again.
[23]  I will put it in the hands of your tormentors,
      who said to you, ‘Bend down, so we can trample you,’
      and you flattened your back on the ground
      like a street for them to walk on.”
[52:1] Awake! Awake, Tziyon!
      Clothe yourself with your strength!
      Dress in your splendid garments,
      Yerushalayim, the holy city!
      For the uncircumcised and the unclean
      will enter you no more.
[2]  Shake off the dust! Arise!
      Be enthroned, Yerushalayim!
      Loosen the chains on your neck,
      captive daughter of Tziyon!
[3]  For thus says ADONAI:
      “You were sold for nothing,
      and you will be redeemed without money.”
[4]  For thus says Adonai ELOHIM:
      “Long ago my people went down to Egypt
      to live there as aliens,
      and Ashur oppressed them for no reason.
[5]  So now, what should I do here,” asks ADONAI,
      “since my people were carried off for nothing?
      Their oppressors are howling,” says ADONAI,
      “and my name is always being insulted, daily.
[6]  Therefore my people will know my name;
      therefore on that day they will know
      that I, the one speaking — here I am!”
[7]  How beautiful on the mountains
      are the feet of him who brings good news,
      proclaiming shalom, bringing good news
      of good things, announcing salvation
      and saying to Tziyon, “Your God is King!”
[8]  Listen! Your watchmen are raising their voices,
      shouting for joy together.
      For they will see, before their own eyes,
      ADONAI returning to Tziyon.
[9]  Break out into joy! Sing together,
      you ruins of Yerushalayim!
      For ADONAI has comforted his people,
      he has redeemed Yerushalayim!
[10]  ADONAI has bared his holy arm
      in the sight of every nation,
      and all the ends of the earth will see
      the salvation of our God.
[11]  Leave! Leave! Get out of there!
      Don’t touch anything unclean!
      Get out from inside it, and be clean,
      you who carry ADONAI’s temple equipment.
[12]  You need not leave in haste,
      you do not have to flee;
      for ADONAI will go ahead of you,
      and the God of Isra’el will also be behind you.
[13]  “See how my servant will succeed!
      He will be raised up, exalted, highly honored!
[14]  Just as many were appalled at him,
      because he was so disfigured
      that he didn’t even seem human
      and simply no longer looked like a man,
[15]  so now he will startle many nations;
      because of him, kings will be speechless.
      For they will see what they had not been told,
      they will ponder things they had never heard.”
[53:1] Who believes our report?
      To whom is the arm of ADONAI revealed?
[2]  For before him he grew up like a young plant,
      like a root out of dry ground.
      He was not well-formed or especially handsome;
      we saw him, but his appearance did not attract us.
[3]  People despised and avoided him,
      a man of pains, well acquainted with illness.
      Like someone from whom people turn their faces,
      he was despised; we did not value him.
[4]  In fact, it was our diseases he bore,
      our pains from which he suffered;
      yet we regarded him as punished,
      stricken and afflicted by God.
[5]  But he was wounded because of our crimes,
      crushed because of our sins;
      the disciplining that makes us whole fell on him,
      and by his bruises* we are healed.
[6]  We all, like sheep, went astray;
      we turned, each one, to his own way;
      yet ADONAI laid on him
      the guilt of all of us.
[7]  Though mistreated, he was submissive —
      he did not open his mouth.
      Like a lamb led to be slaughtered,
      like a sheep silent before its shearers,
      he did not open his mouth.
[8]  After forcible arrest and sentencing,
      he was taken away;
      and none of his generation protested
      his being cut off from the land of the living
      for the crimes of my people,
      who deserved the punishment themselves.
[9]  He was given a grave among the wicked;
      in his death he was with a rich man.
      Although he had done no violence
      and had said nothing deceptive,
[10]  yet it pleased ADONAI to crush him with illness,
      to see if he would present himself as a guilt offering.
      If he does, he will see his offspring;
      and he will prolong his days;
      and at his hand ADONAI’s desire
      will be accomplished.
[11]  After this ordeal, he will see satisfaction.
      “By his knowing [pain and sacrifice],
      my righteous servant makes many righteous;
      it is for their sins that he suffers.
[12]  Therefore I will assign him a share with the great,
      he will divide the spoil with the mighty,
      for having exposed himself to death
      and being counted among the sinners,
      while actually bearing the sin of many
      and interceding for the offenders.”

Ephesians 5
[5:1] So imitate God, as his dear children; [2] and live a life of love, just
as also the Messiah loved us, indeed, on our behalf gave himself up as an
offering, as a slaughtered sacrifice to God with a pleasing fragrance. [3]
Among you there should not even be mentioned sexual immorality, or any kind of
impurity, or greed; these are utterly inappropriate for God’s holy people. [4]
Also out of place are obscenity and stupid talk or coarse language; instead,
you should be giving thanks. [5] For of this you can be sure: every sexually
immoral, impure or greedy person — that is, every idol-worshipper — has no
share in the Kingdom of the Messiah and of God. [6] Let no one deceive you
with empty talk; for it is because of these things that God’s judgment is
coming on those who disobey him. [7] So don’t become partners with them!
[8] For you used to be darkness; but now, united with the Lord, you are light.
Live like children of light, [9] for the fruit of the light is in every kind
of goodness, rightness and truth — [10] try to determine what will please the
Lord. [11] Have nothing to do with the deeds produced by darkness, but instead
expose them, [12] for it is shameful even to speak of the things these people
do in secret. [13] But everything exposed to the light is revealed clearly for
what it is, [14] since anything revealed is a light. This is why it says,
      “Get up, sleeper! Arise from the dead,
      and the Messiah will shine on you!”
[15] Therefore, pay careful attention to how you conduct your life — live
wisely, not unwisely. [16] Use your time well, for these are evil days. [17]
So don’t be foolish, but try to understand what the will of the Lord is.
[18] Don’t get drunk with wine, because it makes you lose control. Instead,
keep on being filled with the Spirit — [19] sing psalms, hymns and spiritual
songs to each other; sing to the Lord and make music in your heart to him;
[20] always give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our
Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
[21] Submit to one another in fear of the Messiah. [22] Wives should submit to
their husbands as they do to the Lord; [23] because the husband is head of the
wife, just as the Messiah, as head of the Messianic Community, is himself the
one who keeps the body safe. [24] Just as the Messianic Community submits to
the Messiah, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
[25] As for husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah loved the Messianic
Community, indeed, gave himself up on its behalf, [26] in order to set it
apart for God, making it clean through immersion in the mikveh, so to speak,
[27] in order to present the Messianic Community to himself as a bride to be
proud of, without a spot, wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and without
defect. [28] This is how husbands ought to love their wives — like their own
bodies; for the man who loves his wife is loving himself. [29] Why, no one
ever hated his own flesh! On the contrary, he feeds it well and takes care of
it, just as the Messiah does the Messianic Community, [30] because we are
parts of his Body. [31] “Therefore a man will leave his father and mother and
remain with his wife, and the two will become one.” [32] There is profound
truth hidden here, which I say concerns the Messiah and the Messianic
Community. [33] However, the text also applies to each of you individually:
let each man love his wife as he does himself, and see that the wife respects
her husband.

Psalm 69:19-36
[19]  [(18)] Come near to me, and redeem me;
      ransom me because of my enemies.
[20]  [(19)] You know how I am insulted,
      shamed and disgraced;
      before you stand all my foes.
[21]  [(20)] Insults have broken my heart
      to the point that I could die.
      I hoped that someone would show compassion,
      but nobody did;
      and that there would be comforters,
      but I found none.
[22]  [(21)] They put poison in my food;
      in my thirst, they gave me vinegar to drink.
[23]  [(22)] Let their dining table
      before them become a snare;
      when they are at peace,
      let it become a trap;
[24]  [(23)] let their eyes be darkened,
      so that they can’t see,
      and let their bodies
      always be stumbling.
[25]  [(24)] Pour out your fury on them,
      let your fierce anger overtake them.
[26]  [(25)] Let the place where they live be desolate,
      with no one to live in their tents,
[27]  [(26)] for persecuting someone you had already stricken,
      for adding to the pain of those you wounded.
[28]  [(27)] Add guilt to their guilt,
      don’t let them enter your righteousness.
[29]  [(28)] Erase them from the book of life,
      let them not be written with the righteous.
[30]  [(29)] Meanwhile, I am afflicted and hurting;
      God, let your saving power raise me up.
[31]  [(30)] I will praise God’s name with a song
      and extol him with thanksgiving.
[32]  [(31)] This will please ADONAI more than a bull,
      with its horns and hoofs.
[33]  [(32)] The afflicted will see it and rejoice;
      you seeking after God, let your heart revive.
[34]  [(33)] For ADONAI pays attention to the needy
      and doesn’t scorn his captive people.
[35]  [(34)] Let heaven and earth praise him,
      the seas and whatever moves in them.
[36]  [(35)] For God will save Tziyon,
      he will build the cities of Y’hudah.
      [His people] will settle there and possess it.
