Psalm 45 (CSB)

Psalm 45


For the choir director: according to “The Lilies.” A Maskil of the sons of Korah. A love song. 

My heart is moved by a noble theme 

as I recite my verses to the king;

my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.

You are the most handsome of men; 

grace flows from your lips.

Therefore God has blessed you forever.

Mighty warrior, strap your sword at your side. 

In your majesty and splendor—

in your splendor ride triumphantly 

in the cause of truth, humility, and justice.

May your right hand show your awe-inspiring acts.

Your sharpened arrows pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies; 

the peoples fall under you.

Your throne, God, is forever and ever; 

the scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of justice.

You love righteousness and hate wickedness; 

therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of joy

more than your companions.

Myrrh, aloes, and cassia perfume all your garments; 

from ivory palaces harps bring you joy.

Kings’ daughters are among your honored women; 

the queen, adorned with gold from Ophir,

stands at your right hand.

10 Listen, daughter, pay attention and consider: 

forget your people and your father’s house,

11 and the king will desire your beauty. 

Bow down to him, for he is your lord.

12 The daughter of Tyre, the wealthy people, 

will seek your favor with gifts.

13 In her chamber, the royal daughter is all glorious, 

her clothing embroidered with gold.

14 In colorful garments she is led to the king; 

after her, the virgins, her companions, are brought to you.

15 They are led in with gladness and rejoicing; 

they enter the king’s palace.

16 Your sons will succeed your ancestors; 

you will make them princes throughout the land.

17 I will cause your name to be remembered for all generations; 

therefore the peoples will praise you forever and ever.

Proverbs 8:30–33 (CSB)

30 I was a skilled craftsman beside him. 

I was his delight every day,

always rejoicing before him.

31 I was rejoicing in his inhabited world, 

delighting in the children of Adam.

32 “And now, sons, listen to me; 

those who keep my ways are happy.

33 Listen to instruction and be wise; 

don’t ignore it.

Mark 13:28–14:2 (CSB)


28 “Learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. 29 In the same way, when you see these things happening, recognize that he is near—at the door. 

30 “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things take place. 31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.


32 “Now concerning that day or hour no one knows—neither the angels in heaven nor the Son—but only the Father.

33 “Watch! Be alert! For you don’t know when the time is coming.

34 “It is like a man on a journey, who left his house, gave authority to his servants, gave each one his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to be alert. 35 Therefore be alert, since you don’t know when the master of the house is coming—whether in the evening or at midnight or at the crowing of the rooster or early in the morning. 36 Otherwise, when he comes suddenly he might find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to everyone: Be alert!” 


14 It was two days before the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread. The chief priests and the scribes were looking for a cunning way to arrest Jesus and kill him. “Not during the festival,” they said, “so that there won’t be a riot among the people.”

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His faithful love endures forever. A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but one who consorts with prostitutes destroys his wealth. Since we have heard that some without our authorization went out from us and troubled you with their words and unsettled your hearts, we have unanimously decided to select men and send them to you along with our dearly loved Barnabas and Paul, who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.

The LORD God Created (January 5, 2021)

When God began to create the heavens and the earth—the earth was without shape or form, it was dark over the deep sea, and God’s wind swept over the waters—God said, “Let there be light.” And so light appeared. God saw how good the light was. God separated the light from the darkness. God named the light Day and the darkness Night.

His Blood Cries Out (January 6, 2020)

What did you do? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground. You are now cursed from the ground that opened its mouth to take your brother’s blood from your hand. When you farm the fertile land, it will no longer grow anything for you, and you will become a roving nomad on the earth. I get no pleasure from the blood. Though you offer many prayers, I will not listen, for your hands are covered with the blood of innocent victims.
