Matthew 14:22-36

22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.

25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.

27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

29 “Come,” he said.

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”

32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

34 When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place recognized Jesus, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought all their sick to him 36 and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched it were healed.

Psalm 79

A psalm of Asaph.

 O God, the nations have invaded your inheritance;
    they have defiled your holy temple,
    they have reduced Jerusalem to rubble.
2 They have left the dead bodies of your servants
    as food for the birds of the sky,
    the flesh of your own people for the animals of the wild.
3 They have poured out blood like water
    all around Jerusalem,
    and there is no one to bury the dead.
4 We are objects of contempt to our neighbors,
    of scorn and derision to those around us.

5 How long, Lord? Will you be angry forever?
    How long will your jealousy burn like fire?
Pour out your wrath on the nations
    that do not acknowledge you,
    on the kingdoms
    that do not call on your name;
7 for they have devoured Jacob
    and devastated his homeland.

8 Do not hold against us the sins of past generations;
    may your mercy come quickly to meet us,
    for we are in desperate need.
9 Help us, God our Savior,
    for the glory of your name;
    deliver us and forgive our sins
    for your name’s sake.
10 Why should the nations say,
    “Where is their God?”

    Before our eyes, make known among the nations
    that you avenge the outpoured blood of your servants.
11 May the groans of the prisoners come before you;
    with your strong arm preserve those condemned to die.
12 Pay back into the laps of our neighbors seven times
    the contempt they have hurled at you, Lord.
13 Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture,
    will praise you forever;
    from generation to generation
    we will proclaim your praise.

Proverbs 23

Saying 7

1          When you sit to dine with a ruler,
                   note well what is before you,
2           and put a knife to your throat
                    if you are given to gluttony.
3           Do not crave his delicacies,
                    for that food is deceptive.

Saying 8

4           Do not wear yourself out to get rich;
                    do not trust your own cleverness.
5            Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone,
                    for they will surely sprout wings
                    and fly off to the sky like an eagle.

Saying 9

6           Do not eat the food of a begrudging host,
                    do not crave his delicacies;
7           for he is the kind of person
                   who is always thinking about the cost.
            “Eat and drink,” he says to you,
                    but his heart is not with you.
8          You will vomit up the little you have eaten
                    and will have wasted your compliments.

Saying 10

9          Do not speak to fools,
                 for they will scorn your prudent words.

Saying 11

10        Do not move an ancient boundary stone
                 or encroach on the fields of the fatherless,
11        for their Defender is strong;
                 he will take up their case against you.

Saying 12

12         Apply your heart to instruction
                 and your ears to words of knowledge.

Saying 13

13          Do not withhold discipline from a child;
                 if you punish them with the rod, they will not die.
14          Punish them with the rod
                 and save them from death.

Saying 14

15          My son, if your heart is wise,
                   then my heart will be glad indeed;
16          my inmost being will rejoice
                    when your lips speak what is right.

Saying 15

17         Do not let your heart envy sinners,
                   but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord.
18         There is surely a future hope for you,
                    and your hope will not be cut off.

Saying 16

19         Listen, my son, and be wise,
                   and set your heart on the right path:
20          Do not join those who drink too much wine
                   or gorge themselves on meat,
21          for drunkards and gluttons become poor,
                  and drowsiness clothes them in rags.

Saying 17

22          Listen to your father, who gave you life,
                   and do not despise your mother when she is old.
23           Buy the truth and do not sell it—
                   wisdom, instruction and insight as well.
24           The father of a righteous child has great joy;
                   a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.
25           May your father and mother rejoice;
                   may she who gave you birth be joyful!

Saying 18

26          My son, give me your heart
                   and let your eyes delight in my ways,
27          for an adulterous woman is a deep pit,
                   and a wayward wife is a narrow well.
28           Like a bandit she lies in wait
                   and multiplies the unfaithful among men.

Saying 19

29           Who has woe? Who has sorrow?
                    Who has strife? Who has complaints?
                    Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes?
30           Those who linger over wine,
                    who go to sample bowls of mixed wine.
31            Do not gaze at wine when it is red,
                    when it sparkles in the cup,
                    when it goes down smoothly!
32            In the end it bites like a snake
                     and poisons like a viper.
33           Your eyes will see strange sights,
                      and your mind will imagine confusing things.
34            You will be like one sleeping on the high seas,
                       lying on top of the rigging.
35            “They hit me,” you will say, “but I’m not hurt!
                      They beat me, but I don’t feel it!
                   When will I wake up
                      so I can find another drink?”

Zephaniah 3:14-20

14    Sing, Daughter Zion;
            shout aloud, Israel!
        Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,
            Daughter Jerusalem!
15    The Lord has taken away your punishment,
            he has turned back your enemy.
         The Lord, the King of Israel, is with you;
            never again will you fear any harm.
16     On that day
            they will say to Jerusalem,
         “Do not fear, Zion;
             do not let your hands hang limp.
17     The Lord your God is with you,
             the Mighty Warrior who saves.
          He will take great delight in you;
              in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
              but will rejoice over you with singing.”

18       “I will remove from you
               all who mourn over the loss of your appointed festivals,
               which is a burden and reproach for you.
19        At that time I will deal
               with all who oppressed you.
            I will rescue the lame;
               I will gather the exiles.
            I will give them praise and honor
                in every land where they have suffered shame.
20        At that time I will gather you;
                at that time I will bring you home.
            I will give you honor and praise
                among all the peoples of the earth
            when I restore your fortunes
               before your very eyes,”
               says the Lord.

Colossians 1:3-14

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on our behalf, and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
