Psalm 129; Psalm 130; Psalm 131; 1 Corinthians 11:1-16

1 From youth, people have constantly attacked me— let Israel now repeat!— 2 from youth people have constantly attacked me— but they haven't beaten me! 3 They plowed my back like farmers; they made their furrows deep. 4 But the LORD is righteous— God cut me free from the ropes of the wicked! 5 Let everyone who hates Zion be ashamed, thoroughly frustrated. 6 Let them be like grass on a roof that dies before it can be pulled up, 7 which won't fill the reaper's hand or fill the harvester's arms. 8 Let no one who passes by say to them: "May the LORD's blessing be on you! We bless you in the LORD's name!"
1 I cry out to you from the depths, LORD— 2 my Lord, listen to my voice! Let your ears pay close attention to my request for mercy! 3 If you kept track of sins, LORD— my Lord, who would stand a chance? 4 But forgiveness is with you— that's why you are honored. 5 I hope, LORD. My whole being hopes, and I wait for God's promise. 6 My whole being waits for my Lord— more than the night watch waits for morning; yes, more than the night watch waits for morning! 7 Israel, wait for the LORD! Because faithful love is with the LORD; because great redemption is with our God! 8 He is the one who will redeem Israel from all its sin.
1 LORD, my heart isn't proud; my eyes aren't conceited. I don't get involved with things too great or wonderful for me. 2 No. But I have calmed and quieted myself like a weaned child on its mother; I'm like the weaned child that is with me. 3 Israel, wait for the LORD— from now until forever from now!
1 Follow my example, just like I follow Christ's. 2 I praise you because you remember all my instructions, and you hold on to the traditions exactly as I handed them on to you. 3 Now I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered shames his head. 5 Every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered disgraces her head. It is the same thing as having her head shaved. 6 If a woman doesn't cover her head, then she should have her hair cut off. If it is disgraceful for a woman to have short hair or to be shaved, then she should keep her head covered. 7 A man shouldn't have his head covered, because he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is man's glory. 8 Man didn't have his origin from woman, but woman from man; 9 and man wasn't created for the sake of the woman, but the woman for the sake of the man. 10 Because of this a woman should have authority over her head, because of the angels. 11 However, woman isn't independent from man, and man isn't independent from woman in the Lord. 12 As woman came from man so also man comes from woman. But everything comes from God. 13 Judge for yourselves: Is it appropriate for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Doesn't nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him; 15 but if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? This is because her long hair is given to her for a covering. 16 But if someone wants to argue about this, we don't have such a custom, nor do God's churches.
