Matthew 3:1In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the Desert of Judea
2and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."
3This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah: "A voice of one calling in the desert, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.
15Jesus replied, "Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness." Then John consented.
16As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him.
17And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.
4The King is mighty, he loves justice-- you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right.
5Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.
6Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who called on his name; they called on the LORD and he answeredthem.
7He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud; they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.
8O LORD our God, you answered them; you were to Israel a forgiving God, though you punished their misdeeds.
9Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the LORD our God is holy.
30They came out of the town and made their way toward him.
31Meanwhile his disciples urged him, "Rabbi, eat something."
32But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you know nothing about."
33Then his disciples said to each other, "Could someone have brought him food?"
34"My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.
35Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.
36Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.
1My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor, if you have struck hands in pledge for another,
2if you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth
3then do this, my son, to free yourself, since you have fallen into your neighbor's hands: Go and humble yourself; press your plea with your neighbor!
4Allow no sleep to your eyes, no slumber to your eyelids. Psalms 5:
4You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell.
7But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house; in reverence will I bow down toward your holy temple.
8Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies-- make straight your way before me.
