Psalm 109


1
God of my praise, let my prayer be answered
2
For the mouth of the sinner is open against me in deceit: his tongue has said false things against me.
3
Words of hate are round about me they have made war against me without cause.
4
For my love they give me back hate but I have given myself to prayer.
5
They have put on me evil for good hate in exchange for my love.
6
Put an evil man over him and let one be placed at his right hand to say evil of him.
7
When he is judged, let the decision go against him and may his prayer become sin.
8
Let his life be short let another take his position of authority.
9
Let his children have no father, and his wife be made a widow.
10
Let his children be wanderers, looking to others for their food let them be sent away from the company of their friends.
11
Let his creditor take all his goods and let others have the profit of his work.
12
Let no man have pity on him, or give help to his children when he is dead.
13
Let his seed be cut off in the coming generation let their name go out of memory.
14
Let the Lord keep in mind the wrongdoing of his fathers and may the sin of his mother have no forgiveness.
15
Let them be ever before the eyes of the Lord, so that the memory of them may be cut off from the earth.
16
Because he had no mercy, but was cruel to the low and the poor, designing the death of the broken-hearted.
17
As he took pleasure in cursing, so let it come on him and as he had no delight in blessing, let it be far from him.
18
He put on cursing like a robe, and it has come into his body like water, and into his bones like oil.
19
Let it be to him as a robe which he puts on, let it be like a band which is round him at all times.
20
Let this be the reward given to my haters from the Lord, and to those who say evil of my soul.
21
But, O Lord God, give me your help, because of your name take me out of danger, because your mercy is good.
22
For I am poor and in need, and my heart is wounded in me.
23
I am gone like the shade when it is stretched out: I am forced out of my place like a locust.
24
My knees are feeble for need of food there is no fat on my bones.
25
As for me, they make sport of me shaking their heads when they see me.
26
Give me help, O Lord my God in your mercy be my saviour
27
So that they may see that it is the work of your hand that you, Lord, have done it.
28
They may give curses but you give blessing when they come up against me, put them to shame but let your servant be glad.
29
Let my haters be clothed with shame, covering themselves with shame as with a robe.
30
I will give the Lord great praise with my mouth yes, I will give praise to him among all the people.
31
For he is ever at the right hand of the poor, to take him out of the hands of those who go after his soul.

Romans 8

18-39
18
I am of the opinion that there is no comparison between the pain of this present time and the glory which we will see in the future.
19
For the strong desire of every living thing is waiting for the revelation of the sons of God.
20
For every living thing was put under the power of change, not by its desire, but by him who made it so, in hope
21
That all living things will be made free from the power of death and will have a part with the free children of God in glory.
22
For we are conscious that all living things are weeping and sorrowing in pain together till now.
23
And not only so, but we who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we have sorrow in our minds, waiting for the time when we will take our place as sons, that is, the salvation of our bodies.
24
For our salvation is by hope: but hope which is seen is not hope: for who is hoping for what he sees?
25
But if we have hope for that which we see not, then we will be able to go on waiting for it.
26
And in the same way the Spirit is a help to our feeble hearts: for we are not able to make prayer to God in the right way but the Spirit puts our desires into words which are not in our power to say
27
And he who is the searcher of hearts has knowledge of the mind of the Spirit, because he is making prayers for the saints in agreement with the mind of God.
28
And we are conscious that all things are working together for good to those who have love for God, and have been marked out by his purpose.
29
Because those of whom he had knowledge before they came into existence, were marked out by him to be made like his Son, so that he might be the first among a band of brothers:
30
And those who were marked out by him were named and those who were named were given righteousness and to those to whom he gave righteousness, in the same way he gave glory.
31
What may we say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
32
He who did not keep back his only Son, but gave him up for us all, will he not with him freely give us all things?
33
Who will say anything against the saints of God? It is God who makes us clear from evil
34
Who will give a decision against us? It is Christ Jesus who not only was put to death, but came again from the dead, who is now at the right hand of God, taking our part.
35
Who will come between us and the love of Christ? Will trouble, or pain, or cruel acts, or the need of food or of clothing, or danger, or the sword?
36
As it is said in the holy Writings, Because of you we are put to death every day we are like sheep ready for destruction.
37
But we are able to overcome all these things and more through his love.
38
For I am certain that not death, or life, or angels, or rulers, or things present, or things to come, or powers,
39
Or things on high, or things under the earth, or anything which is made, will be able to come between us and the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
