    One of the sons of the prophets said to his fellow prophet by the word of the LORD,“ Strike me!” But the man refused to strike him.He told him,“ Because you did not listen to the LORD, mark my words: When you leave me, a lion will kill you.” When he left him, a lion attacked and killed him.The prophet found another man and said to him,“ Strike me!” So the man struck him, inflicting a wound.Then the prophet went and waited for the king on the road. He disguised himself with a bandage over his eyes.As the king was passing by, he cried out to the king and said,“ Your servant marched out into the middle of the battle. Suddenly, a man turned aside and brought someone to me and said,‘ Guard this man! If he is ever missing, it will be your life in place of his life, or you will weigh out seventy-five pounds of silver.’But while your servant was busy here and there, he disappeared.” The king of Israel said to him,“ That will be your sentence; you yourself have decided it.”He quickly removed the bandage from his eyes. The king of Israel recognized that he was one of the prophets.

    He also said,“ A man had two sons.The younger of them said to his father,‘ Father, give me the share of the estate I have coming to me.’ So he distributed the assets to them.Not many days later, the younger son gathered together all he had and traveled to a distant country, where he squandered his estate in foolish living.After he had spent everything, a severe famine struck that country, and he had nothing.Then he went to work for one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed pigs.He longed to eat his fill from the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one would give him anything.When he came to his senses, he said,‘ How many of my father’s hired workers have more than enough food, and here I am dying of hunger!I’ll get up, go to my father, and say to him,“ Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight.I’m no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired workers.”’So he got up and went to his father. But while the son was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion. He ran, threw his arms around his neck, and kissed him.The son said to him,‘ Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight. I’m no longer worthy to be called your son.’“ But the father told his servants,‘ Quick! Bring out the best robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.Then bring the fattened calf and slaughter it, and let’s celebrate with a feast,because this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found!’ So they began to celebrate.“ Now his older son was in the field; as he came near the house, he heard music and dancing.So he summoned one of the servants, questioning what these things meant.‘ Your brother is here,’ he told him,‘ and your father has slaughtered the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’“ Then he became angry and didn’t want to go in. So his father came out and pleaded with him.But he replied to his father,‘ Look, I have been slaving many years for you, and I have never disobeyed your orders, yet you never gave me a goat so that I could celebrate with my friends.But when this son of yours came, who has devoured your assets with prostitutes, you slaughtered the fattened calf for him.’“‘ Son,’ he said to him,‘ you are always with me, and everything I have is yours.But we had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’”

Choose one of them, and I will do it to you.’”So Gad went to David, told him the choices, and asked him,“ Do you want three years of famine to come on your land, to flee from your foes three months while they pursue you, or to have a plague in your land three days? Now, consider carefully what answer I should take back to the one who sent me.”

    “ What’s the matter?” the king asked her.“ Sadly, I am a widow; my husband died,” she said.“ Your servant had two sons. They were fighting in the field with no one to separate them, and one struck the other and killed him.Now the whole clan has risen up against your servant and said,‘ Hand over the one who killed his brother so we may put him to death for the life of the brother he murdered. We will eliminate the heir!’ They would extinguish my one remaining ember by not preserving my husband’s name or posterity on earth.”The king told the woman,“ Go home. I will issue a command on your behalf.”Then the woman of Tekoa said to the king,“ My lord the king, may any blame be on me and my father’s family, and may the king and his throne be innocent.”“ Whoever speaks to you,” the king said,“ bring him to me. He will not trouble you again!”She replied,“ Please, may the king invoke the LORD your God, so that the avenger of blood will not increase the loss, and they will not eliminate my son!”“ As the LORD lives,” he vowed,“ not a hair of your son will fall to the ground.”

    When it was reported to David,“ Uriah didn’t go home,” David questioned Uriah,“ Haven’t you just come from a journey? Why didn’t you go home?”Uriah answered David,“ The ark, Israel, and Judah are dwelling in tents, and my master Joab and his soldiers are camping in the open field. How can I enter my house to eat and drink and sleep with my wife? As surely as you live and by your life, I will not do this!”“ Stay here today also,” David said to Uriah,“ and tomorrow I will send you back.” So Uriah stayed in Jerusalem that day and the next.Then David invited Uriah to eat and drink with him, and David got him drunk. He went out in the evening to lie down on his cot with his master’s servants, but he did not go home.The next morning David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it with Uriah.In the letter he wrote: Put Uriah at the front of the fiercest fighting, then withdraw from him so that he is struck down and dies.When Joab was besieging the city, he put Uriah in the place where he knew the best enemy soldiers were.Then the men of the city came out and attacked Joab, and some of the men from David’s soldiers fell in battle; Uriah the Hethite also died.
  • Matthew 21:33-45
    “ Listen to another parable: There was a landowner, who planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a winepress in it, and built a watchtower. He leased it to tenant farmers and went away.When the time came to harvest fruit, he sent his servants to the farmers to collect his fruit.The farmers took his servants, beat one, killed another, and stoned a third.Again, he sent other servants, more than the first group, and they did the same to them.Finally, he sent his son to them.‘ They will respect my son,’ he said.“ But when the tenant farmers saw the son, they said to each other,‘ This is the heir. Come, let’s kill him and take his inheritance.’So they seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him.Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those farmers?”“ He will completely destroy those terrible men,” they told him,“ and lease his vineyard to other farmers who will give him his fruit at the harvest.”Jesus said to them,“ Have you never read in the Scriptures: The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This is what the Lord has done and it is wonderful in our eyes?Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruit.Whoever falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will shatter him.”When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they knew he was speaking about them.

  • Psalms 51:1-19
    Be gracious to me, God, according to your faithful love; according to your abundant compassion, blot out my rebellion.Completely wash away my guilt and cleanse me from my sin.For I am conscious of my rebellion, and my sin is always before me.Against you— you alone— I have sinned and done this evil in your sight. So you are right when you pass sentence; you are blameless when you judge.Indeed, I was guilty when I was born; I was sinful when my mother conceived me.Surely you desire integrity in the inner self, and you teach me wisdom deep within.Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice.Turn your face away from my sins and blot out all my guilt.God, create a clean heart for me and renew a steadfast spirit within me.Do not banish me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.Restore the joy of your salvation to me, and sustain me by giving me a willing spirit.Then I will teach the rebellious your ways, and sinners will return to you.Save me from the guilt of bloodshed, God— God of my salvation— and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.You do not want a sacrifice, or I would give it; you are not pleased with a burnt offering.The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit. You will not despise a broken and humbled heart, God.In your good pleasure, cause Zion to prosper; build the walls of Jerusalem.Then you will delight in righteous sacrifices, whole burnt offerings; then bulls will be offered on your altar.

  • 2 Samuel 7 1-2 Samuel 7 5
    When the king had settled into his palace and the LORD had given him rest on every side from all his enemies,the king said to the prophet Nathan,“ Look, I am living in a cedar house while the ark of God sits inside tent curtains.”So Nathan told the king,“ Go and do all that is on your mind, for the LORD is with you.”But that night the word of the LORD came to Nathan:“ Go to my servant David and say,‘ This is what the LORD says: Are you to build me a house to dwell in?
  • Isaiah 5:1-7
    I will sing about the one I love, a song about my loved one’s vineyard: The one I love had a vineyard on a very fertile hill.He broke up the soil, cleared it of stones, and planted it with the finest vines. He built a tower in the middle of it and even dug out a winepress there. He expected it to yield good grapes, but it yielded worthless grapes.So now, residents of Jerusalem and men of Judah, please judge between me and my vineyard.What more could I have done for my vineyard than I did? Why, when I expected a yield of good grapes, did it yield worthless grapes?Now I will tell you what I am about to do to my vineyard: I will remove its hedge, and it will be consumed; I will tear down its wall, and it will be trampled.I will make it a wasteland. It will not be pruned or weeded; thorns and briers will grow up. I will also give orders to the clouds that rain should not fall on it.For the vineyard of the LORD of Armies is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah, the plant he delighted in. He expected justice but saw injustice; he expected righteousness but heard cries of despair.

    When they told Jotham, he climbed to the top of Mount Gerizim, raised his voice, and called to them: Listen to me, citizens of Shechem, and may God listen to you:The trees decided to anoint a king over themselves. They said to the olive tree,“ Reign over us.”But the olive tree said to them,“ Should I stop giving my oil that people use to honor both God and men, and rule over the trees?”Then the trees said to the fig tree,“ Come and reign over us.”But the fig tree said to them,“ Should I stop giving my sweetness and my good fruit, and rule over trees?”Later, the trees said to the grapevine,“ Come and reign over us.”But the grapevine said to them,“ Should I stop giving my wine that cheers both God and man, and rule over trees?”Finally, all the trees said to the bramble,“ Come and reign over us.”The bramble said to the trees,“ If you really are anointing me as king over you, come and find refuge in my shade. But if not, may fire come out from the bramble and consume the cedars of Lebanon.”

  • Luke 16:19-31
    “ There was a rich man who would dress in purple and fine linen, feasting lavishly every day.But a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, was lying at his gate.He longed to be filled with what fell from the rich man’s table, but instead the dogs would come and lick his sores.One day the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried.And being in torment in Hades, he looked up and saw Abraham a long way off, with Lazarus at his side.‘ Father Abraham!’ he called out,‘ Have mercy on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this flame!’“‘ Son,’ Abraham said,‘ remember that during your life you received your good things, just as Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here, while you are in agony.Besides all this, a great chasm has been fixed between us and you, so that those who want to pass over from here to you cannot; neither can those from there cross over to us.’“‘ Father,’ he said,‘ then I beg you to send him to my father’s house—because I have five brothers— to warn them, so that they won’t also come to this place of torment.’“ But Abraham said,‘ They have Moses and the prophets; they should listen to them.’“‘ No, father Abraham,’ he said.‘ But if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’“ But he told him,‘ If they don’t listen to Moses and the prophets, they will not be persuaded if someone rises from the dead.’”
