    Happy New Year!

    How many times have we heard or uttered these words? Oftentimes, superficially without any thought at all. So rather than make it a statement, why not format it in a question. Will you have a Happy New Year?

Bible Version

Genesis chapter 37

1
Jacob stayed and lived in the land of Canaan. This is the same land where his father had lived.
2
This is the story of Jacob's family. Joseph was a young man, 17 years old. His job was to take care of the sheep and the goats. Joseph did this work with his brothers, the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah. (Bilhah and Zilpah were his father's wives.) Joseph told his father about the bad things that his brothers did.
3
Joseph was born at a time when his father Israel was very old, so Israel loved him more than he loved his other sons. Jacob gave him a special coat, which was long and very beautiful.
4
When Joseph's brothers saw that their father loved Joseph more than he loved them, they hated their brother because of this. They refused to say nice things to him.
5
One time Joseph had a special dream. Later, he told his brothers about this dream, and after that his brothers hated him even more.
6
Joseph said, "I had a dream.
7
We were all working in the field, tying stacks of wheat together. Then my stack got up. It stood there while all of your stacks of wheat made a circle around mine and bowed down to it."
8
His brothers said, "Do you think this means that you will be a king and rule over us?" His brothers hated Joseph more now because of the dreams he had about them.
9
Then Joseph had another dream, and he told his brothers about it. He said, "I had another dream. I saw the sun, the moon, and eleven stars bowing down to me."
10
Joseph also told his father about this dream, but his father criticized him. His father said, "What kind of dream is this? Do you believe that your mother, your brothers, and I will bow down to you?"
11
Joseph's brothers continued to be jealous of him, but his father thought about all these things and wondered what they could mean.
12
One day Joseph's brothers went to Shechem to care for their father's sheep.
13
Jacob said to Joseph, "Go to Shechem. Your brothers are there with my sheep." Joseph answered, "I will go."
14
His father said, "Go and see if your brothers are safe. Come back and tell me if my sheep are all fine." So Joseph's father sent him from the Valley of Hebron to Shechem.
15
At Shechem, Joseph got lost. A man found him wandering in the fields. The man said, "What are you looking for?"
16
Joseph answered, "I am looking for my brothers. Can you tell me where they are with their sheep?"
17
The man said, "They have already gone away. I heard them say that they were going to Dothan." So Joseph followed his brothers and found them in Dothan.
18
Joseph's brothers saw him coming from far away. They decided to make a plan to kill him.
19
They said to each other, "Here comes Joseph the dreamer.
20
We should kill him now while we can. We could throw his body into one of the empty wells and tell our father that a wild animal killed him. Then we will show him that his dreams are useless."
21
But Reuben wanted to save Joseph. He said, "Let's not kill him.
22
We can put him into a well without hurting him." Reuben planned to save Joseph and send him back to his father.
23
When Joseph came to his brothers, they attacked him and tore off his long and beautiful coat.
24
Then they threw him into an empty well that was dry.
25
While Joseph was in the well, the brothers sat down to eat. They looked up and saw a group of traders traveling from Gilead to Egypt. Their camels were carrying many different spices and riches.
26
So Judah said to his brothers, "What profit will we get if we kill our brother and hide his death?
27
We will profit more if we sell him to these traders. Then we will not be guilty of killing our own brother." The other brothers agreed.
28
When the Midianite traders came by, the brothers took Joseph out of the well and sold him to the traders for 20 pieces of silver. The traders took him to Egypt.
29
Reuben had been gone, but when he came back to the well, he saw that Joseph was not there. He tore his clothes to show that he was upset.
30
Reuben went to the brothers and said, "The boy is not in the well! What will I do?"
31
The brothers killed a goat and put the goat's blood on Joseph's beautiful coat.
32
Then the brothers showed the coat to their father. And the brothers said, "We found this coat. Is this Joseph's coat?"
33
His father saw the coat and knew that it was Joseph's. He said, "Yes, that is his! Maybe some wild animal has killed him. My son Joseph has been eaten by a wild animal!"
34
Jacob was so sorry about his son that he tore his clothes. Then Jacob put on special clothes to show that he was sad. He continued to be sad about his son for a long time.
35
All of Jacob's sons and daughters tried to comfort him, but Jacob was never comforted. He said, "I will be sorry for my son until the day I die." So Jacob continued to be sad for his son Joseph.
36
The Midianite traders later sold Joseph in Egypt. They sold him to Potiphar, the captain of the Pharaoh's guards.

Genesis chapter 38

1
About that time, Judah left his brothers and went to stay with a man named Hirah from the town of Adullam.
2
Judah met a Canaanite girl there and married her. The girl's father was named Shua.
3
The Canaanite girl gave birth to a son and named him Er.
4
Later, she gave birth to another son and named him Onan.
5
Then she had another son named Shelah. Judah lived in Kezib when his third son was born.
6
Judah chose a woman named Tamar to be the wife of his first son Er.
7
But Er did many bad things. The Lord was not happy with him, so the Lord killed him.
8
Then Judah said to Er's brother Onan, "Go and sleep with your dead brother's wife. Become like a husband to her. If children are born, they will belong to your brother Er."
9
Onan knew that the children from this union would not belong to him. He had sexual relations with Tamar, but he did not allow himself to stay inside her.
10
This made the Lord angry. So he killed Onan also.
11
Then Judah said to his daughter-inlaw Tamar, "Go back to your father's house. Stay there and don't marry until my young son Shelah grows up." Judah was afraid that Shelah would also be killed like his brothers. So Tamar went back to her father's home.
12
Later, Judah's wife, the daughter of Shua, died. After Judah's time of sadness, he went to Timnah with his friend Hirah from Adullam. Judah went to Timnah to have the wool cut from his sheep.
13
Tamar learned that Judah, her father-in-law, was going to Timnah to cut the wool from his sheep.
14
Tamar always wore clothes that showed that she was a widow. So she put on some different clothes and covered her face with a veil. Then she sat down near the road going to Enaim, a town near Timnah. Tamar knew that Judah's younger son Shelah was now grown up, but Judah would not make plans for her to marry him.
15
Judah traveled on that road and saw her, but he thought that she was a prostitute. (Her face was covered with a veil like a prostitute.)
16
So he went to her and said, "Let me have sex with you." (Judah did not know that she was Tamar, his daughter-inlaw.) She said, "How much will you give me?"
17
Judah answered, "I will send you a young goat from my flock." She answered, "I agree to that. But first you must give me something to keep until you send me the goat."
18
Judah asked, "What do you want me to give you as proof that I will send you the goat?" Tamar answered, "Give me your seal and its string and your walking stick." Judah gave these things to her. Then Judah and Tamar had sexual relations, and she became pregnant.
19
Then Tamar went home, took off her veil that covered her face, and again put on the special clothes that showed she was a widow.
20
Later, Judah sent his friend Hirah to Enaim to give the prostitute the goat he promised. Judah also told Hirah to get the special seal and the walking stick from her, but Hirah could not find her.
21
He asked some of the men at the town of Enaim, "Where is the prostitute who was here by the road?" The men answered, "There has never been a prostitute here."
22
So Judah's friend went back to Judah and said, "I could not find the woman. The men who live in that place said that there was never a prostitute there."
23
So Judah said, "Let her keep the things. I don't want people to laugh at us. I tried to give her the goat, but we could not find her. That is enough."
24
About three months later, someone told Judah, "Your daughter-in-law Tamar sinned like a prostitute, and now she is pregnant." Then Judah said, "Take her out and burn her."
25
The men went to Tamar to kill her, but she sent a message to her father-in-law that said, "The man who made me pregnant is the man who owns these things. Look at them. Whose are they? Whose special seal and string is this? Whose walking stick is this?"
26
Judah recognized these things and said, "She is right. I was wrong. I did not give her my son Shelah like I promised." And Judah did not sleep with her again.
27
The time came for Tamar to give birth. She was going to have twins.
28
While she was giving birth, one baby put his hand out. The nurse tied a red string on the hand and said, "This baby was born first."
29
But that baby pulled his hand back in, so the other baby was born first. So the nurse said, "You were able to break out first!" So they named him Perez.
30
After this, the other baby was born. This was the baby with the red string on his hand. They named him Zerah.

Psalm chapter 7

1
A song of David that he sang to the Lord about Cush from the tribe of Benjamin. Lord my God, I come to you for protection. Save me from those who are chasing me.
2
If you don't help me, I will be torn apart, like an animal caught by a lion. I will be carried away with no one to save me.
3
Lord my God, I have done nothing wrong.
4
I have done nothing to hurt a friend or to help his enemies.
5
If that is not the truth, then punish me. Let an enemy chase me, catch me, and kill me. Let him grind me into the dirt and put me in my grave. Selah
6
Lord, get up and show your anger! My enemy is angry, so stand and fight against him. Get me the justice that you demand.
7
Gather the nations around you, and take your place as judge.
8
Lord, judge the people. Lord, judge me. Prove that I am right and that I am innocent.
9
Stop those who do evil. Support those who do good. God, you are fair. You know what people are thinking.
10
God helps people who want to do right, so he will protect me.
11
God is a good judge. He always condemns evil.
12
If the wicked will not change, then God is ready to punish them. He has prepared his deadly weapons. His sword is sharp. His bow is strung, drawn back, and ready to shoot its flaming arrow.
13
14
The minds of the wicked are full of evil; they are pregnant with wicked plans, which give birth to lies.
15
They dig a pit to trap others, but they are the ones who will fall into it.
16
The trouble they cause will come back on them. They plan harm for others, but they are the ones who will be hurt.
17
I praise the Lord because he is good. I praise the name of the Lord Most High.

Luke chapter 15

1
Many tax collectors and sinners came to listen to Jesus.
2
Then the Pharisees and the teachers of the law began to complain, "Look, this man welcomes sinners and even eats with them!"
3
Then Jesus told them this story:
4
"Suppose one of you has 100 sheep, but one of them gets lost. What will you do? You will leave the other 99 sheep there in the field and go out and look for the lost sheep. You will continue to search for it until you find it.
5
And when you find it, you will be very happy. You will carry it
6
home, go to your friends and neighbors and say to them, 'Be happy with me because I found my lost sheep!'
7
In the same way, I tell you, heaven is a happy place when one sinner decides to change. There is more joy for that one sinner than for 99 good people who don't need to change.
8
"Suppose a woman has ten silver coins, but she loses one of them. She will take a light and clean the house. She will look carefully for the coin until she finds it.
9
And when she finds it, she will call her friends and neighbors and say to them, 'Be happy with me because I have found the coin that I lost!'
10
In the same way, it's a happy time for the angels of God when one sinner decides to change."
11
Then Jesus said, "There was a man who had two sons.
12
The younger son said to his father, 'Give me now the part of your property that I am supposed to receive someday.' So the father divided his wealth between his two sons.
13
"A few days later the younger son gathered up all that he had and left. He traveled far away to another country, and there he wasted his money living like a fool.
14
After he spent everything he had, there was a terrible famine throughout the country. He was hungry and needed money.
15
So he went and got a job with one of the people who lived there. The man sent him into the fields to feed pigs.
16
He was so hungry that he wanted to eat the food the pigs were eating. But no one gave him anything.
17
"The son realized that he had been very foolish. He thought, 'All my father's hired workers have plenty of food. But here I am, almost dead because I have nothing to eat.
18
I will leave and go to my father. I will say to him: Father, I have sinned against God and have done wrong to you.
19
I am no longer worthy to be called your son. But let me be like one of your hired workers.'
20
So he left and went to his father. "While the son was still a long way off, his father saw him coming and felt sorry for him. So he ran to him and hugged and kissed him.
21
The son said, 'Father, I have sinned against God and have done wrong to you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.'
22
"But the father said to his servants, 'Hurry! Bring the best clothes and put them on him. Also, put a ring on his finger and good sandals on his feet.
23
And bring our best calf and kill it so that we can celebrate with plenty to eat.
24
My son was dead, but now he is alive again! He was lost, but now he is found!' So they began to have a party.
25
"The older son had been out in the field. When he came near the house, he heard the sound of music and dancing.
26
So he called to one of the servant boys and asked, 'What does all this mean?'
27
The boy said, 'Your brother has come back, and your father killed the best calf to eat. He is happy because he has his son back safe and sound.'
28
"The older son was angry and would not go in to the party. So his father went out and begged him to come in.
29
But he said to his father, 'Look, for all these years I have worked like a slave for you. I have always done what you told me to do, and you never gave me even a young goat for a party with my friends.
30
But then this son of yours comes home after wasting your money on prostitutes, and you kill the best calf for him!'
31
"His father said to him, 'Oh, my son, you are always with me, and everything I have is yours.
32
But this was a day to be happy and celebrate. Your brother was dead, but now he is alive. He was lost, but now he is found.'"
