Psalm 100; Psalm 101; Psalm 102; 1 Corinthians 1

1 (99-1) <A psalm of praise.> (99-2) Sing joyfully to God, all the earth: 2 (92-2) serve ye the Lord with gladness. Come in before his presence with exceeding great joy. 3 (99-3) Know ye that the Lord he is God: he made us, and not we ourselves. We are his people and the sheep of his pasture. 4 (99-4) Go ye into his gates with praise, into his courts with hymns: and give glory to him. Praise ye his name: 5 (99-5) For the Lord is sweet, his mercy endureth for ever, and his truth to generation and generation.
1 (100-1) <A psalm for David himself.> Mercy and judgment I will sing to thee, O Lord: I will sing, 2 (100-2) And I will understand in the unspotted way, when thou shalt come to me. I walked in the innocence of my heart, in the midst of my house. 3 (100-3) I will not set before my eyes any unjust thing: I hated the workers of iniquities. 4 (100-4) The perverse heart did not cleave to me: and the malignant, that turned aside from me, I would not know. 5 (100-5) The man that in private detracted his neighbour, him did I persecute. With him that had a proud eye, and an unsatiable heart, I would not eat. 6 (100-6) My eyes were upon the faithful of the earth, to sit with me: the man that walked in the perfect way, he served me. 7 (100-7) He that worketh pride shall not dwell in the midst of my house: he that speaketh unjust things did not prosper before my eyes. 8 (100-8) In the morning I put to death all the wicked of the land: that I might cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of the Lord.
1 (101-1) <The prayer of the poor man, when he was anxious, and poured out his supplication before the Lord.> (101-2) Hear, O Lord, my prayer: and let my cry come to thee. 2 (101-3) Turn not away thy face from me: in the day when I am in trouble, incline thy ear to me. In what day soever I shall call upon thee, hear me speedily. 3 (101-4) For my days are vanished like smoke, and my bones are grown dry like fuel for the fire. 4 (101-5) I am smitten as grass, and my heart is withered: because I forgot to eat my bread. 5 (101-6) Through the voice of my groaning, my bone hath cleaved to my flesh. 6 (101-7) I am become like to a pelican of the wilderness: I am like a night raven in the house. 7 (101-8) I have watched, and am become as a sparrow all alone on the housetop. 8 (101-9) All the day long my enemies reproached me: and they that praised me did swear against me. 9 (101-10) For I did eat ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping. 10 (101-11) Because of thy anger and indignation: for having lifted me up thou hast thrown me down. 11 (101-12) My days have declined like a shadow, and I am withered like grass. 12 (101-13) But thou, O Lord, endurest for ever: and thy memorial to all generations. 13 (101-14) Thou shalt arise and have mercy on Sion: for it is time to have mercy on it, for the time is come. 14 (101-15) For the stones thereof have pleased thy servants: and they shall have pity on the earth thereof. 15 (101-16) All the Gentiles shall fear thy name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory. 16 (101-17) For the Lord hath built up Sion: and he shall be seen in his glory. 17 (101-18) He hath had regard to the prayer of the humble: and he hath not despised their petition. 18 (101-19) Let these things be written unto another generation: and the people that shall be created shall praise the Lord: 19 (101-20) Because he hath looked forth from his high sanctuary: from heaven the Lord hath looked upon the earth. 20 (101-21) That he might hear the groans of them that are in fetters: that he might release the children of the slain: 21 (101-22) That they may declare the name of the Lord in Sion: and his praise in Jerusalem; 22 (101-23) When the people assemble together, and kings, to serve the Lord. 23 (101-24) He answered him in the way of his strength: Declare unto me the fewness of my days. 24 (101-25) Call me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are unto generation and generation. 25 (101-26) In the beginning, O Lord, thou foundedst the earth: and the heavens are the works of thy hands. 26 (101-27) They shall perish but thou remainest: and all of them shall grow old like a garment: And as a vesture thou shalt change them, and they shall be changed. 27 (101-28) But thou art always the selfsame, and thy years shall not fail. 28 (101-29) The children of thy servants shall continue and their seed shall be directed for ever.
1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Sosthenes a brother, 2 To the church of God that is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that invoke the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place of theirs and ours. 3 Grace to you and peace, from God our father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 4 I give thanks to my God always for you, for the grace of God that is given you in Christ Jesus: 5 That in all things you are made rich in him, in all utterance and in all knowledge; 6 As the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, 7 So that nothing is wanting to you in any grace, waiting for the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ. 8 Who also will confirm you unto the end without crime, in the days of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful: by whom you are called unto the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no schisms among you: but that you be perfect in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For it hath been signified unto me, my brethren, of you, by them that are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. 12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith: I indeed am of Paul; and I am of Apollo; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul then crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I give God thanks, that I baptized none of you but Crispus and Caius: 15 Lest any should say that you were baptized in my name. 16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanus. Besides, I know not whether I baptized any other. 17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not in wisdom of speech, lest the cross of Christ should be made void. 18 For the word of the cross, to them indeed that perish, is foolishness: but to them that are saved, that is, to us, it is the power of God. 19 For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise: and the prudence of the prudent I will reject. 20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For, seeing that in the wisdom of God, the world, by wisdom, knew not God, it pleased God, by the foolishness of our preaching, to save them that believe. 22 For both the Jews require signs: and the Greeks seek after wisdom. 23 But we preach Christ crucified: unto the Jews indeed a stumblingblock, and unto the Gentiles foolishness: 24 But unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ, the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men: and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 For see your vocation, brethren, that there are not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble. 27 But the foolish things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound the wise: and the weak things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound the strong. 28 And the base things of the world and the things that are contemptible, hath God chosen: and things that are not, that he might bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his sight. 30 But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom and justice and sanctification and redemption: 31 That, as it is written: He that glorieth may glory in the Lord.
