    Isaiah 58
    1
    "Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the house of Jacob their sins.
    2
    For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them.
    3
    `Why have we fasted,' they say, `and you have not seen it? Why have we humbled ourselves, and you have not noticed?' "Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please and exploit all your workers.
    4
    Your fasting ends in quarreling and strife, and in striking each other with wicked fists. You cannot fast as you do today and expect your voice to be heard on high.
    5
    Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for a man to humble himself? Is it only for bowing one's head like a reed and for lying on sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to the LORD?
    6
    "Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?
    7
    Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter-- when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
    8
    Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness[1] will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
    9
    Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. "If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk,

    Revelation 16
    1
    Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, "Go, pour out the seven bowls of God's wrath on the earth."
    2
    The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly and painful sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped his image.
    3
    The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died.
    4
    The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.
    5
    Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say: "You are just in these judgments, you who are and who were, the Holy One, because you have so judged;
    6
    for they have shed the blood of your saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve."
    7
    And I heard the altar respond: "Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments."

    2 Timothy 3
    10
    You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance,
    11
    persecutions, sufferings--what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them.
    12
    In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
    13
    while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
    14
    But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it,
    15
    and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
    16
    All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
    17
    so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

    John 13
    1
    It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.[1]
    2
    The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus.
    3
    Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God;
    4
    so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.
    5
    After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
    6
    He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"
    7
    Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand."
    8
    "No," said Peter, "you shall never wash my feet." Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me."
    9
    "Then, Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!"
    10
    Jesus answered, "A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you."

    Genesis 1
    1
    In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
    2
    Now the earth was[1] formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
    3
    And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.
    4
    God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
    5
    God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.
    6
    And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water."
    7
    So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so.
    8
    God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning--the second day.
    9
    And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so.
    10
    God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good.
    11
    Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so.
    12
    The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
    13
    And there was evening, and there was morning--the third day.
    14
    And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years,
    15
    and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so.
    16
    God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.
    17
    God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth,
    18
    to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.
    19
    And there was evening, and there was morning--the fourth day.
    20
    And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky."
    21
    So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
    22
    God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth."
    23
    And there was evening, and there was morning--the fifth day.
    24
    And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.
    25
    God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
    26
    Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth,[2] and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
    27
    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
    28
    God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
    29
    Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
    30
    And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground--everything that has the breath of life in it--I give every green plant for food." And it was so.
    31
    God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day.
