Genesis 12:1-5

1 And the Lord said to Abram, "Go forth from your country and from your kindred and from your father's house to the land that I will show you. 2And I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, and you shall be one blessed. 3And I will bless those who bless you, and those who curse you I will curse, and in you all the_ tribes of the earth shall be blessed."
4 And Abram went, as the Lord had told him to, and Lot left with him. Now Abram was seventy-five years of age when he departed from Charran. 5And Abram took his wife Sara and his brother's son Lot and all their possessions that they had acquired and every person whom they had acquired in Charran, and they departed to go to the land of Chanaan, and they came to the land of Chanaan.

Psalm 23

Psalm 22(23)

1 A Psalm. Pertaining to Dauid.

(1) The Lord shepherds me, and I shall lack nothing.
2 In a verdant place, there he made me encamp;
by water of rest he reared me;
3 my soul he restored.
He led me into paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.

4 For even if I walk in the midst of death's shadow,
I will not fear evil, because you are with me;
your rod and your staff—they comforted me.

5 You prepared a table before me over against
those that afflict me;
you anointed my head with oil,
and your cup was supremely
6 And your mercy shall pursue me all the days of my life,
and my residing in the Lord's house is for length of days.

Isaiah 55:1-3

1 You who thirst, go to water,
and as many of you as have no money,
go, buy, and drink wine and fat,
without money and without price.
2 Why do you set a price with money
and your labor for that which does not satisfy?
Hear me, and you shall eat good things,
and your soul shall revel in good things.
3 Pay attention with your ears, and follow my ways;
listen to me, and your soul will live in good things.
I will make with you an everlasting covenant,
the sacred things of David that are sure.
