1 Shout praises to the LORD!
With all my heart I will thank the LORD
when his people meet.
2 The LORD has done many wonderful things!
Everyone who is pleased with God’s marvellous deeds
will keep them in mind.
3 Everything the LORD does is glorious and majestic,
and his power to bring justice will never end.
4 The LORD God is famous for his wonderful deeds,
and he is kind and merciful.
5 He gives food to his worshippers
and always keeps his agreement with them.
6 He has shown his mighty power to his people
and has given them the lands of other nations.
7 God is always honest and fair,
and his laws can be trusted.
8 They are true and right and will stand forever.
9 God rescued his people,
and he will never break his agreement with them.
He is fearsome and holy.
10 Respect and obey the LORD!
This is the first step to wisdom and good sense.
God will always be respected.
1 Kings 2
10-11 David was king of Israel forty years. He ruled seven years from Hebron and thirty-three years from Jerusalem. Then he died and was buried in Jerusalem. 12 His son Solomon became king and took control of David’s kingdom.
15 Act like people with good sense and not like fools. 16 These are evil times, so make every minute count. 17 Don’t be stupid. Instead, find out what the Lord wants you to do. 18 Don’t destroy yourself by getting drunk, but let the Spirit fill your life. 19 When you meet together, sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, as you praise the Lord with all your heart. 20 Always use the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to thank God the Father for everything.
51 I am that bread from heaven! Everyone who eats it will live forever. My flesh is the life-giving bread that I give to the people of this world.
52 They started arguing with each other and asked, “How can he give us his flesh to eat?”
53 Jesus answered:
I tell you for certain that you won’t live unless you eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Man. 54 But if you do eat my flesh and drink my blood, you will have eternal life, and I will raise you to life on the last day. 55 My flesh is the true food, and my blood is the true drink. 56 If you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you are one with me, and I am one with you.
57 The living Father sent me, and I have life because of him. Now everyone who eats my flesh will live because of me. 58 The bread that comes down from heaven isn’t like what your ancestors ate. They died, but whoever eats this bread will live forever.
