God's Promise to Abram
1Now the Lord said to Abram, "Get out of your country. from your kindred and from your father's house, to a land I will show you. 2I will make you a great nation; I will bless YOU and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. 3I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you; and in you all the tribes of the earth shall be blessed." 4Then Abram departed as the Lord said to him, and Lot went with him. Now Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. 5So Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother's son and all their possessions and every soul they acquired in Haran, and they departed for the land of Canaan. Thus they came to the land of Canaan.
Psalm 22 (23)
1A psalm by David.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord to the end of my days.
1 "You who are thirsty, go to the water, and all who have no money, go and buy wine and fat, and eat and drink without money and price. 2Why do you value at the price of money, and give your toil for what does not satisfy? Listen to Me and eat good things, and your soul will delight in good things. 3Incline your ears and follow my ways. Listen to Me, and your soul shall live in good things; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, the holy and faithful things of David.
