1 Our LORD, in all generations you have been our home.
2 You have always been God
long before the birth of the mountains,
even before you created the earth and the world.
3 At your command we die and turn back to dust,
4 but a thousand years mean nothing to you!
They are merely a day gone by
or a few hours in the night.
5 You bring our lives to an end just like a dream.
We are merely tender grass
6 that sprouts and grows in the morning,
but dries up by evening.
7 Your furious anger frightens and destroys us,
8 and you know all of our sins,
even those we do in secret.
9 Your anger is a burden each day we live,
then life ends like a sigh.
10 We can expect seventy years,
or maybe eighty, if we are healthy,
but even our best years bring trouble and sorrow.
Suddenly our time is up, and we disappear.
11 No one knows the full power of your furious anger,
but it is as great as the fear that we owe to you.
12 Teach us to use wisely all the time we have.
13 Help us, LORD! Don’t wait! Pity your servants.
14 When morning comes,
let your love satisfy all our needs.
Then we can celebrate
and be glad for what time we have left.
15 Make us happy for as long
as you caused us trouble and sorrow.
16 Do wonderful things for us, your servants,
and show your mighty power to our children.
17 Our LORD and our God, treat us with kindness
and let all go well for us.
Please let all go well!
1 Sometime later, Moses left the lowlands of Moab. He went up Mount Pisgah to the peak of Mount Nebo, which is across the Jordan River from Jericho. The LORD showed him all the land as far north as Gilead and the town of Dan. 2 He let Moses see the territories that would soon belong to the tribes of Naphtali, Ephraim, Manasseh, and Judah, as far west as the Mediterranean Sea. 3 The LORD also showed him the land in the south, from the valley near the town of Jericho, known as The City of Palm Trees, down to the town of Zoar.
4 The LORD said, “Moses, this is the land I was talking about when I solemnly promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that I would give land to their descendants. I have let you see it, but you will not cross the Jordan and go in.”
5 And so, Moses the LORD’S servant died there in Moab, just as the LORD had said. 6 The LORD buried him in a valley near the town of Beth-Peor, but even today no one knows exactly where. 7 Moses was a hundred twenty years old when he died, yet his eyesight was still good, and his body was strong.
8 The people of Israel stayed in the lowlands of Moab, where they mourned and grieved thirty days for Moses, as was their custom.
9 Before Moses died, he had placed his hands on Joshua, and the LORD had given Joshua wisdom. The Israelites paid attention to what Joshua said and obeyed the commands that the LORD had given Moses.
10 There has never again been a prophet in Israel like Moses. The LORD spoke face to face with him 11 and sent him to perform powerful miracles in the presence of the king of Egypt and his entire nation. 12 No one else has ever had the power to do such great things as Moses did for everyone to see.
1 Thessalonians 2
1 My friends, you know that our time with you wasn’t wasted. 2 As you remember, we had been mistreated and insulted at Philippi. But God gave us the courage to tell you the good news about him, even though many people caused us trouble. 3 We didn’t have any hidden motives when we won you over, and we didn’t try to fool or trick anyone. 4 God was pleased to trust us with his message. We didn’t speak to please people, but to please God who knows our motives.
5 You also know that we didn’t try to flatter anyone. God himself knows that what we did wasn’t a cover-up for greed. 6 We were not trying to get you or anyone else to praise us. 7 But as apostles, we could have demanded help from you. After all, Christ is the one who sent us. We chose to be like children or like a mother nursing her baby. 8 We cared so much for you, and you became so dear to us, that we were willing to give our lives for you when we gave you God’s message.
34 After Jesus had made the Sadducees look foolish, the Pharisees heard about it and got together. 35 One of them was an expert in the Jewish Law. So he tried to test Jesus by asking, 36 “Teacher, what is the most important commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus answered:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. 38 This is the first and most important commandment. 39 The second most important commandment is like this one. And it is, “Love others as much as you love yourself.” 40 All the Law of Moses and the Books of the Prophets are based on these two commandments.
41 While the Pharisees were still there, Jesus asked them, 42 “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose family will he come from?”
They answered, “He will be a son of King David.”
43 Jesus replied, “How then could the Spirit lead David to call the Messiah his Lord? David said,
44 ‘The Lord said to my Lord:
Sit at my right side
until I make your enemies into a footstool for you.’
45 If David called the Messiah his Lord, how can the Messiah be a son of King David?” 46 No one was able to give Jesus an answer, and from that day on, no one dared ask him any more questions.
