Psalm 24 (CSB)

Psalm 24

THE KING OF GLORY

A psalm of David.

The earth and everything in it, 

the world and its inhabitants,

belong to the Lord; 

for he laid its foundation on the seas 

and established it on the rivers.

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? 

Who may stand in his holy place?

The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, 

who has not appealed to what is false,

and who has not sworn deceitfully.

He will receive blessing from the Lord, 

and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

Such is the generation of those who inquire of him, 

who seek the face of the God of Jacob.,

Selah

Lift up your heads, you gates! 

Rise up, ancient doors!

Then the King of glory will come in.

Who is this King of glory? 

The Lord, strong and mighty, 

the Lord, mighty in battle. 

Lift up your heads, you gates! 

Rise up, ancient doors!

Then the King of glory will come in.

10 Who is he, this King of glory? 

The Lord of Armies, 

he is the King of glory.

Selah

Proverbs 5:1–8 (CSB)

AVOID SEDUCTION

My son, pay attention to my wisdom; 

listen closely to my understanding

so that you may maintain discretion 

and your lips safeguard knowledge.

Though the lips of the forbidden woman drip honey 

and her words are smoother than oil,

in the end she’s as bitter as wormwood 

and as sharp as a double-edged sword.

Her feet go down to death; 

her steps head straight for Sheol.

She doesn’t consider the path of life; 

she doesn’t know that her ways are unstable.

So now, sons, listen to me, 

and don’t turn away from the words from my mouth.

Keep your way far from her. 

Don’t go near the door of her house.

Matthew 21:33–22:22 (CSB)

THE PARABLE OF THE VINEYARD OWNER

33 “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. 34 When the time came to harvest fruit, he sent his servants to the farmers to collect his fruit. 35 The farmers took his servants, beat one, killed another, and stoned a third. 36 Again, he sent other servants, more than the first group, and they did the same to them. 37 Finally, he sent his son to them. ‘They will respect my son,’ he said. 

38 “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.’ 39 So they seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him. 40 Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those farmers?” 

41 “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.” 

42 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?,

43 Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruit. 44 Whoever falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will shatter him.”

45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they knew he was speaking about them. 46 Although they were looking for a way to arrest him, they feared the crowds, because the people regarded him as a prophet. 

THE PARABLE OF THE WEDDING BANQUET

22 Once more Jesus spoke to them in parables: “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his servants to summon those invited to the banquet, but they didn’t want to come. Again, he sent out other servants and said, ‘Tell those who are invited: See, I’ve prepared my dinner; my oxen and fattened cattle have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.’

“But they paid no attention and went away, one to his own farm, another to his business, while the rest seized his servants, mistreated them, and killed them. The king was enraged, and he sent out his troops, killed those murderers, and burned down their city. 

“Then he told his servants, ‘The banquet is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Go then to where the roads exit the city and invite everyone you find to the banquet.’ 10 So those servants went out on the roads and gathered everyone they found, both evil and good. The wedding banquet was filled with guests. 11 When the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who was not dressed for a wedding. 12 So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ The man was speechless. 

13 “Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him up hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ 

14 “For many are invited, but few are chosen.”

GOD AND CAESAR

15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted how to trap him by what he said., 16 So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians. “Teacher,” they said, “we know that you are truthful and teach truthfully the way of God. You don’t care what anyone thinks nor do you show partiality., 17 Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” 

18 Perceiving their malicious intent, Jesus said, “Why are you testing me, hypocrites? 19 Show me the coin used for the tax.” They brought him a denarius. 20 “Whose image and inscription is this?” he asked them. 

21 “Caesar’s,” they said to him. 

Then he said to them, “Give, then, to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.
