Psalm 113; Psalm 114; Psalm 115; 1 Corinthians 6

1 Praise the Lord! You servants of the Lord, praise his name! 2 May his name be praised, now and forever. 3 From the east to the west praise the name of the Lord! 4 The Lord rules over all nations; his glory is above the heavens. 5 There is no one like the Lord our God. He lives in the heights above, 6 but he bends down to see the heavens and the earth. 7 He raises the poor from the dust; he lifts the needy from their misery 8 and makes them companions of princes, the princes of his people. 9 He honors the childless wife in her home; he makes her happy by giving her children. Praise the Lord!
1 When the people of Israel left Egypt, when Jacob's descendants left that foreign land, 2 Judah became the Lord's holy people, Israel became his own possession. 3 The Red Sea looked and ran away; the Jordan River stopped flowing. 4 The mountains skipped like goats; the hills jumped around like lambs. 5 What happened, Sea, to make you run away? And you, O Jordan, why did you stop flowing? 6 You mountains, why did you skip like goats? You hills, why did you jump around like lambs? 7 Tremble, earth, at the Lord's coming, at the presence of the God of Jacob, 8 who changes rocks into pools of water and solid cliffs into flowing springs.
1 To you alone, O Lord, to you alone, and not to us, must glory be given because of your constant love and faithfulness. 2 Why should the nations ask us, "Where is your God?" 3 Our God is in heaven; he does whatever he wishes. 4 Their gods are made of silver and gold, formed by human hands. 5 They have mouths, but cannot speak, and eyes, but cannot see. 6 They have ears, but cannot hear, and noses, but cannot smell. 7 They have hands, but cannot feel, and feet, but cannot walk; they cannot make a sound. 8 May all who made them and who trust in them become like the idols they have made. 9 Trust in the Lord, you people of Israel. He helps you and protects you. 10 Trust in the Lord, you priests of God. He helps you and protects you. 11 Trust in the Lord, all you that worship him. He helps you and protects you. 12 The Lord remembers us and will bless us; he will bless the people of Israel and all the priests of God. 13 He will bless everyone who honors him, the great and the small alike. 14 May the Lord give you children - you and your descendants! 15 May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth! 16 Heaven belongs to the Lord alone, but he gave the earth to us humans. 17 The Lord is not praised by the dead, by any who go down to the land of silence. 18 But we, the living, will give thanks to him now and forever. Praise the Lord!
1 If any of you have a dispute with another Christian, how dare you go before heathen judges instead of letting God's people settle the matter? 2 Don't you know that God's people will judge the world? Well, then, if you are to judge the world, aren't you capable of judging small matters? 3 Do you not know that we shall judge the angels? How much more, then, the things of this life! 4 If such matters come up, are you going to take them to be settled by people who have no standing in the church? 5 Shame on you! Surely there is at least one wise person in your fellowship who can settle a dispute between fellow Christians. 6 Instead, one Christian goes to court against another and lets unbelievers judge the case! 7 The very fact that you have legal disputes among yourselves shows that you have failed completely. Would it not be better for you to be wronged? Would it not be better for you to be robbed? 8 Instead, you yourselves wrong one another and rob one another, even other believers! 9 Surely you know that the wicked will not possess God's Kingdom. Do not fool yourselves; people who are immoral or who worship idols or are adulterers or homosexual perverts 10 or who steal or are greedy or are drunkards or who slander others or are thieves - none of these will possess God's Kingdom. 11 Some of you were like that. But you have been purified from sin; you have been dedicated to God; you have been put right with God by the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 12 Someone will say, "I am allowed to do anything." Yes; but not everything is good for you. I could say that I am allowed to do anything, but I am not going to let anything make me its slave. 13 Someone else will say, "Food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food." Yes; but God will put an end to both. The body is not to be used for sexual immorality, but to serve the Lord; and the Lord provides for the body. 14 God raised the Lord from death, and he will also raise us by his power. 15 You know that your bodies are parts of the body of Christ. Shall I take a part of Christ's body and make it part of the body of a prostitute? Impossible! 16 Or perhaps you don't know that the man who joins his body to a prostitute becomes physically one with her? The scripture says quite plainly, "The two will become one body." 17 But he who joins himself to the Lord becomes spiritually one with him. 18 Avoid immorality. Any other sin a man commits does not affect his body; but the man who is guilty of sexual immorality sins against his own body. 19 Don't you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourselves but to God; 20 he bought you for a price. So use your bodies for God's glory.
