Jeremiah 14:11-16:15
[11] Then the LORD said to me, “Do not pray for the well-being of this
people.[12] Although they fast, I will not listen to their cry; though they
offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Instead, I
will destroy them with the sword, famine and plague.”
[13] But I said, “Alas, Sovereign LORD! The prophets keep telling them, ‘You
will not see the sword or suffer famine. Indeed, I will give you lasting peace
in this place.’”
[14] Then the LORD said to me, “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name.
I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying
to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own
minds.[15] Therefore this is what the LORD says about the prophets who are
prophesying in my name: I did not send them, yet they are saying, ‘No sword or
famine will touch this land.’ Those same prophets will perish by sword and
famine.[16] And the people they are prophesying to will be thrown out into the
streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and sword. There will be no one to
bury them, their wives, their sons and their daughters. I will pour out on
them the calamity they deserve.
[17] “Speak this word to them:
      “‘Let my eyes overflow with tears
        night and day without ceasing;
      for the Virgin Daughter, my people,
        has suffered a grievous wound,
        a crushing blow.
[18]  If I go into the country,
        I see those slain by the sword;
      if I go into the city,
        I see the ravages of famine.
      Both prophet and priest
        have gone to a land they know not.’”
[19]  Have you rejected Judah completely?
        Do you despise Zion?
      Why have you afflicted us
        so that we cannot be healed?
      We hoped for peace
        but no good has come,
      for a time of healing
        but there is only terror.
[20]  We acknowledge our wickedness, LORD,
        and the guilt of our ancestors;
        we have indeed sinned against you.
[21]  For the sake of your name do not despise us;
        do not dishonor your glorious throne.
      Remember your covenant with us
        and do not break it.
[22]  Do any of the worthless idols of the nations bring rain?
        Do the skies themselves send down showers?
      No, it is you, LORD our God.
        Therefore our hope is in you,
        for you are the one who does all this.
[15:1] Then the LORD said to me: “Even if Moses and Samuel were to stand
before me, my heart would not go out to this people. Send them away from my
presence! Let them go![2] And if they ask you, ‘Where shall we go?’ tell them,
‘This is what the LORD says:
      “‘Those destined for death, to death;
      those for the sword, to the sword;
      those for starvation, to starvation;
      those for captivity, to captivity.’
[3] “I will send four kinds of destroyers against them,” declares the LORD,
“the sword to kill and the dogs to drag away and the birds and the wild
animals to devour and destroy.[4] I will make them abhorrent to all the
kingdoms of the earth because of what Manasseh son of Hezekiah king of Judah
did in Jerusalem.
[5]  “Who will have pity on you, Jerusalem?
        Who will mourn for you?
        Who will stop to ask how you are?
[6]  You have rejected me,” declares the LORD.
        “You keep on backsliding.
      So I will reach out and destroy you;
        I am tired of holding back.
[7]  I will winnow them with a winnowing fork
        at the city gates of the land.
      I will bring bereavement and destruction on my people,
        for they have not changed their ways.
[8]  I will make their widows more numerous
        than the sand of the sea.
      At midday I will bring a destroyer
        against the mothers of their young men;
      suddenly I will bring down on them
        anguish and terror.
[9]  The mother of seven will grow faint
        and breathe her last.
      Her sun will set while it is still day;
        she will be disgraced and humiliated.
      I will put the survivors to the sword
        before their enemies,”
                  declares the LORD.
[10]  Alas, my mother, that you gave me birth,
        a man with whom the whole land strives and contends!
      I have neither lent nor borrowed,
        yet everyone curses me.
[11] The LORD said,
      “Surely I will deliver you for a good purpose;
        surely I will make your enemies plead with you
        in times of disaster and times of distress.
[12]  “Can a man break iron—
        iron from the north—or bronze?
[13]  “Your wealth and your treasures
        I will give as plunder, without charge,
      because of all your sins
        throughout your country.
[14]  I will enslave you to your enemies
        in a land you do not know,
      for my anger will kindle a fire
        that will burn against you.”
[15]  LORD, you understand;
        remember me and care for me.
        Avenge me on my persecutors.
      You are long-suffering—do not take me away;
        think of how I suffer reproach for your sake.
[16]  When your words came, I ate them;
        they were my joy and my heart’s delight,
      for I bear your name,
        LORD God Almighty.
[17]  I never sat in the company of revelers,
        never made merry with them;
      I sat alone because your hand was on me
        and you had filled me with indignation.
[18]  Why is my pain unending
        and my wound grievous and incurable?
      You are to me like a deceptive brook,
        like a spring that fails.
[19] Therefore this is what the LORD says:
      “If you repent, I will restore you
        that you may serve me;
      if you utter worthy, not worthless, words,
        you will be my spokesman.
      Let this people turn to you,
        but you must not turn to them.
[20]  I will make you a wall to this people,
        a fortified wall of bronze;
      they will fight against you
        but will not overcome you,
      for I am with you
        to rescue and save you,”
                  declares the LORD.
[21]  “I will save you from the hands of the wicked
        and deliver you from the grasp of the cruel.”
Day of Disaster
[16:1] Then the word of the LORD came to me:[2] “You must not marry and have
sons or daughters in this place.”[3] For this is what the LORD says about the
sons and daughters born in this land and about the women who are their mothers
and the men who are their fathers:[4] “They will die of deadly diseases. They
will not be mourned or buried but will be like dung lying on the ground. They
will perish by sword and famine, and their dead bodies will become food for
the birds and the wild animals.”
[5] For this is what the LORD says: “Do not enter a house where there is a
funeral meal; do not go to mourn or show sympathy, because I have withdrawn my
blessing, my love and my pity from this people,” declares the LORD.[6] “Both
high and low will die in this land. They will not be buried or mourned, and no
one will cut themselves or shave their head for the dead.[7] No one will offer
food to comfort those who mourn for the dead—not even for a father or a
mother—nor will anyone give them a drink to console them.
[8] “And do not enter a house where there is feasting and sit down to eat and
drink.[9] For this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Before
your eyes and in your days I will bring an end to the sounds of joy and
gladness and to the voices of bride and bridegroom in this place.
[10] “When you tell these people all this and they ask you, ‘Why has the LORD
decreed such a great disaster against us? What wrong have we done? What sin
have we committed against the LORD our God?’[11] then say to them, ‘It is
because your ancestors forsook me,’ declares the LORD, ‘and followed other
gods and served and worshiped them. They forsook me and did not keep my
law.[12] But you have behaved more wickedly than your ancestors. See how all
of you are following the stubbornness of your evil hearts instead of obeying
me.[13] So I will throw you out of this land into a land neither you nor your
ancestors have known, and there you will serve other gods day and night, for I
will show you no favor.’
[14] “However, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when it will no
longer be said, ‘As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up
out of Egypt,’[15] but it will be said, ‘As surely as the LORD lives, who
brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the
countries where he had banished them.’ For I will restore them to the land I
gave their ancestors.

1 Thessalonians 2:13-3:13
[13] And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of
God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it
actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.[14]
For you, brothers and sisters, became imitators of God’s churches in Judea,
which are in Christ Jesus: You suffered from your own people the same things
those churches suffered from the Jews[15] who killed the Lord Jesus and the
prophets and also drove us out. They displease God and are hostile to
everyone[16] in their effort to keep us from speaking to the Gentiles so that
they may be saved. In this way they always heap up their sins to the limit.
The wrath of God has come upon them at last.
Paul’s Longing to See the Thessalonians
[17] But, brothers and sisters, when we were orphaned by being separated from
you for a short time (in person, not in thought), out of our intense longing
we made every effort to see you.[18] For we wanted to come to you—certainly I,
Paul, did, again and again—but Satan blocked our way.[19] For what is our
hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord
Jesus when he comes? Is it not you?[20] Indeed, you are our glory and joy.
[3:1] So when we could stand it no longer, we thought it best to be left by
ourselves in Athens.[2] We sent Timothy, who is our brother and co-worker in
God’s service in spreading the gospel of Christ, to strengthen and encourage
you in your faith,[3] so that no one would be unsettled by these trials. For
you know quite well that we are destined for them.[4] In fact, when we were
with you, we kept telling you that we would be persecuted. And it turned out
that way, as you well know.[5] For this reason, when I could stand it no
longer, I sent to find out about your faith. I was afraid that in some way the
tempter had tempted you and that our labors might have been in vain.
Timothy’s Encouraging Report
[6] But Timothy has just now come to us from you and has brought good news
about your faith and love. He has told us that you always have pleasant
memories of us and that you long to see us, just as we also long to see
you.[7] Therefore, brothers and sisters, in all our distress and persecution
we were encouraged about you because of your faith.[8] For now we really live,
since you are standing firm in the Lord.[9] How can we thank God enough for
you in return for all the joy we have in the presence of our God because of
you?[10] Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you again and
supply what is lacking in your faith.
[11] Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for
us to come to you.[12] May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for
each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.[13] May he
strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence
of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.

Psalm 80
Psalm 80
For the director of music. To the tune of “The Lilies of the Covenant.” Of
Asaph. A psalm.
[1]  Hear us, Shepherd of Israel,
        you who lead Joseph like a flock.
      You who sit enthroned between the cherubim,
        shine forth[2] before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh.
      Awaken your might;
        come and save us.
[3]  Restore us, O God;
        make your face shine on us,
        that we may be saved.
[4]  How long, LORD God Almighty,
        will your anger smolder
        against the prayers of your people?
[5]  You have fed them with the bread of tears;
        you have made them drink tears by the bowlful.
[6]  You have made us an object of derision to our neighbors,
        and our enemies mock us.
[7]  Restore us, God Almighty;
        make your face shine on us,
        that we may be saved.
[8]  You transplanted a vine from Egypt;
        you drove out the nations and planted it.
[9]  You cleared the ground for it,
        and it took root and filled the land.
[10]  The mountains were covered with its shade,
        the mighty cedars with its branches.
[11]  Its branches reached as far as the Sea,
        its shoots as far as the River.
[12]  Why have you broken down its walls
        so that all who pass by pick its grapes?
[13]  Boars from the forest ravage it,
        and insects from the fields feed on it.
[14]  Return to us, God Almighty!
        Look down from heaven and see!
      Watch over this vine,
[15]    the root your right hand has planted,
        the son you have raised up for yourself.
[16]  Your vine is cut down, it is burned with fire;
        at your rebuke your people perish.
[17]  Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand,
        the son of man you have raised up for yourself.
[18]  Then we will not turn away from you;
        revive us, and we will call on your name.
[19]  Restore us, LORD God Almighty;
        make your face shine on us,
        that we may be saved.

Proverbs 25:1-5
More Proverbs of Solomon
[25:1] These are more proverbs of Solomon, compiled by the men of Hezekiah
king of Judah:
[2]  It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
        to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
[3]  As the heavens are high and the earth is deep,
        so the hearts of kings are unsearchable.
[4]  Remove the dross from the silver,
        and a silversmith can produce a vessel;
[5]  remove wicked officials from the king’s presence,
        and his throne will be established through righteousness.
