Bible Version

Psalm chapter 76

1
To the director: With instruments. One of Asaph's songs of praise. People in Judah know God. People in Israel respect his name.
2
His Temple is in Salem. His house is on Mount Zion.
3
There he shattered the arrows, shields, swords, and other weapons of war. Selah
4
God, you are glorious coming back from the hills where you defeated your enemies.
5
They thought they were strong, but now they lie dead in the fields. Their bodies are stripped of all they owned. They could not defend themselves.
6
The God of Jacob shouted at them, and their army of chariots and horses fell dead.
7
God, you are awesome! No one can stand against you when you are angry.
8
You stood as judge and announced your decision. You saved the humble people of the land. From heaven you gave the decision, and the whole earth was silent and afraid.
9
10
Even human anger can bring you honor when you use it to punish your enemies.
11
People, you made promises to the Lord your God. Now give him what you promised. People everywhere fear and respect God, and they will bring gifts to him.
12
God defeats great leaders; all the kings on earth fear him.

Isaiah chapter 36

1
During Hezekiah's 14 year as king, Sennacherib king of Assyria went to fight against all the strong cities of Judah. Sennacherib defeated those cities.
2
He sent his commander with a large army to King Hezekiah in Jerusalem. The commander and his army left Lachish and went to Jerusalem. They stopped near the aqueduct by the Upper Pool, on the street that leads up to Laundryman's Field.
3
Three men from Jerusalem went out to talk with the commander. These men were Eliakim son of Hilkiah, Joah son of Asaph, and Shebna. Eliakim was the palace manager, Joah was the record keeper, and Shebna was the royal secretary.
4
The commander told them, "Tell Hezekiah this is what the great king, the king of Assyria says: 'What are you trusting in to help you?
5
I tell you, if you are trusting in power and great battle plans, that is useless. Those are nothing but empty words. Now I ask you, who do you trust so much that you are willing to rebel against me?
6
Are you depending on Egypt to help you? Egypt is like a broken walking stick. If you lean on it for support, it will only stab you and hurt you. Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, cannot be trusted by anyone who depends on him for help.
7
'But maybe you will say, "We trust the Lord our God to help us." But I know that Hezekiah destroyed the altars and high places where people worshiped the Lord. Hezekiah told the people of Judah and Jerusalem, "You must worship only at this one altar here in Jerusalem."
8
'If you still want to fight, my master, the king of Assyria, will make this agreement with you. I promise that I will give you 2000 horses if you can find enough men to ride them into battle.
9
But even then, you couldn't beat even one of my master's lowest ranking officers. So why do you still depend on Egypt's chariots and horse soldiers?
10
'Now, do you think I came to this country to destroy it without the Lord's help. No, the Lord said to me, "Go up against this country and destroy it!"'"
11
Then Eliakim, Shebna, and Joah said to the commander, "Please, speak to us in Aramaic. We understand that language. Don't speak to us in the language of Judah. If you use our language, the people on the city walls will understand you."
12
But the commander said, "My master did not send me to speak only to you and your master. I was also sent to speak to those people sitting there on the wall. They will not have enough food or water either; they, too, will eat their own waste and drink their own urine like you! "
13
Then the commander shouted loudly in Hebrew,
14
"Hear this message from the great king, the king of Assyria: 'Don't let Hezekiah fool you. He cannot save you from my power.
15
Don't believe Hezekiah when he says, "Trust in the Lord! The Lord will save us. He will not let the king of Assyria defeat the city."
16
'Don't listen to Hezekiah. Listen to the king of Assyria. The king of Assyria says, "Do this favor for me; come out to me, and then everyone will be free to have grapes from their own vines, figs from their own trees, and water from their own well.
17
You can do this until I come and take you away to a land like your own. In that new land, you will have good grain, new wine, bread, and vineyards. "
18
'Don't let Hezekiah change your mind when he says, "The Lord will save us." Did any of the gods of other nations save their land from the king of Assyria?
19
Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim? Did they save Samaria from my power?
20
Did any of the gods in the other countries save their land from me? So why do you think the Lord will save Jerusalem from me?'"
21
But the people were silent. They did not say a word to the commander because King Hezekiah had given them a command. He said, "Don't say anything to him."
22
Then the palace manager (Eliakim son of Hilkiah), the royal secretary (Shebna), and the record keeper (Joah son of Asaph) went to Hezekiah. Their clothes were torn to show they were upset. They told Hezekiah everything the Assyrian commander had said.

Isaiah chapter 37

1
When King Hezekiah listened to their message, he tore his clothes to show he was upset. Then he put on sackcloth and went to the Lord's Temple.
2
Hezekiah sent Eliakim, the palace manager, Shebna, the royal secretary, and the elders of the priests to the prophet, Isaiah son of Amoz. They wore the special clothes that showed they were sad and upset.
3
They said to Isaiah, "King Hezekiah has commanded that today will be a special day for sorrow and sadness. It will be a very sad day�as sad as when a baby should be born, but there is not enough strength for the birth.
4
The commander's master, the king of Assyria, has sent him to say bad things about the living God. Maybe the Lord your God will hear it and prove the enemy is wrong. So pray for those who are still left alive."
5
When King Hezekiah's officers came to Isaiah,
6
he said to them, "Give this message to your master, Hezekiah: The Lord says, 'Don't be afraid of what you heard from the commanders! Don't believe what those "boys" from the king of Assyria said to make fun of me.
7
Look, I will send a spirit against the king of Assyria. He will get a report that will make him return to his own country. And I will cut him down with a sword in his own country.'"
8
The commander heard that the king of Assyria had left Lachish. He found him at Libnah, fighting against that city.
9
Then the king of Assyria got a report that said, "King Tirhakah of Ethiopia is coming to fight you." So the king of Assyria sent messengers to Hezekiah again.
10
He told them, "Tell King Hezekiah of Judah these things: 'Don't be fooled by the god you trust when he says, "Jerusalem will not be defeated by the king of Assyria."
11
You have heard what the kings of Assyria did to all the other countries. We destroyed them completely. Will you be saved? No!
12
Did the gods of those people save them? No, my ancestors destroyed them all. They destroyed Gozan, Haran, Rezeph, and the people of Eden living in Tel Assar.
13
Where is the king of Hamath? The king of Arpad? The king of the city of Sepharvaim? The kings of Hena and Ivvah?'"
14
Hezekiah received the letters from the messengers and read them. Then he went up to the Lord's Temple and laid the letters out in front of the Lord.
15
He prayed to the Lord:
16
"Lord All-Powerful, God of Israel, you sit as King above the Cherub angels. You alone are the God who rules all the kingdoms on earth. You are the creator of heaven and earth.
17
Lord, please listen to me. Lord, open your eyes and look at this message. Hear the words that Sennacherib sent to insult the living God!
18
It is true, Lord. The kings of Assyria did destroy all those nations.
19
They did throw the gods of those nations into the fire, but they were not real gods. They were only wood and stone�statues that people made. That is why the kings of Assyria could destroy them.
20
But you are the Lord our God, so please save us from the king of Assyria. Then all the other nations will know that you are the Lord, the only God."
21
Then Isaiah son of Amoz sent this message to Hezekiah. Isaiah said, "The Lord, the God of Israel, says this, 'You prayed to me about the message that came from King Sennacherib of Assyria. I have heard you. '
22
"So this is the Lord's message against Sennacherib: 'The virgin daughter Zion does not think you are important. She makes fun of you. She shakes her head at you and laughs behind your back.
23
But who was it that you insulted and made fun of? Who was it that you spoke against? You were speaking against the Holy One of Israel. You acted like you were great and he was nothing.
24
You sent your officers to insult the Lord. This is what you said: "I took my many chariots up the high mountains deep inside Lebanon. I cut down its tallest cedars and its best fir trees. I have been on its highest mountain and deep inside its forests.
25
I dug wells and drank water from new places. I dried up the rivers of Egypt and walked where the water was."
26
"'How could you say this, Sennacherib? Did no one ever tell you that I, the Lord, planned these things long ago? From ancient times I decided what would happen. And now I have made it happen. I let you tear down strong cities and change them into piles of rocks.
27
The people living there had no power. They were afraid and confused. They were about to be cut down like grass and plants in the field. They were like grass growing on the housetops, dying before it grows tall.
28
I know all about your battles; I know when you rested, when you went out to war, and when you came home. I also know when you got upset at me.
29
Yes, you were upset at me. I heard your proud insults. So I will put my hook in your nose and my bit in your mouth. Then I will turn you around and lead you back the way you came.'"
30
Then the Lord said, "I will give you a sign to show you that these words are true. You will not be able to plant seeds this year, so next year you will eat grain that grew wild from the previous year's crop. But in the third year, you will eat grain from seeds that you planted. You will harvest your crops, and you will have plenty to eat. You will plant vineyards and eat grapes from them.
31
"The people from the family of Judah who have escaped and are left alive will be like plants that send their roots deep into the ground and produce fruit above the ground.
32
That is because a few people will come out of Jerusalem alive. There will be survivors coming from Mount Zion. " The strong love of the Lord All-Powerful will do this.
33
So the Lord says this about the king of Assyria: "He will not come into this city or shoot an arrow here. He will not bring his shields up against this city or build up a hill of dirt to attack its walls.
34
He will go back the way he came. He will not come into this city. The Lord says this!
35
I will protect this city and save it. I will do this for myself and for my servant David. "
36
That night the angel of the Lord went out and killed 185,000 men in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up in the morning, they saw all the dead bodies.
37
So King Sennacherib of Assyria went back to Nineveh and stayed there.
38
One day Sennacherib was in the temple of his god Nisroch, worshiping him. His sons Adrammelech and Sharezer killed him with a sword and ran away to Ararat. So Sennacherib's son Esarhaddon became the new king of Assyria.

1 Peter chapter 1

1
Greetings from Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ. To God's chosen people who are away from their homes�people scattered all over the areas of Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia.
2
God planned long ago to choose you and to make you his holy people, which is the Spirit's work. God wanted you to obey him and to be made clean by the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. I pray that you will enjoy more and more of God's grace and peace.
3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God has great mercy, and because of his mercy he gave us a new life. This new life brings us a living hope through Jesus Christ's resurrection from death.
4
Now we wait to receive the blessings God has for his children. These blessings are kept for you in heaven. They cannot be ruined or be destroyed or lose their beauty.
5
God's power protects you through your faith, and it keeps you safe until your salvation comes. That salvation is ready to be given to you at the end of time.
6
I know the thought of that is exciting, even if you must suffer through different kinds of troubles for a short time now.
7
These troubles test your faith and prove that it is pure. And such faith is worth more than gold. Gold can be proved to be pure by fire, but gold will ruin. When your faith is proven to be pure, the result will be praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ comes.
8
You have not seen Christ, but still you love him. You can't see him now, but you believe in him. You are filled with a wonderful and heavenly joy that cannot be explained.
9
Your faith has a goal, and you are reaching that goal�your salvation.
10
The prophets studied carefully and tried to learn about this salvation. They spoke about the grace that was coming to you.
11
The Spirit of Christ was in those prophets. And the Spirit was telling about the sufferings that would happen to Christ and about the glory that would come after those sufferings. The prophets tried to learn about what the Spirit was showing them�when it would happen and what the world would be like at that time.
12
It was made clear to them that their service was not for themselves. They were serving you when they told about the things you have now heard. You heard them from those who told you the Good News, with the help of the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even the angels would like very much to know more about these things you were told.
13
So prepare your minds for service. With complete self-control put all your hope in the grace that will be yours when Jesus Christ comes.
14
In the past you did not have the understanding you have now, so you did the evil things you wanted to do. But now you are children of God, so you should obey him and not live the way you did before.
15
Be holy in everything you do, just as God is holy. He is the one who chose you.
16
In the Scriptures God says, "Be holy, because I am holy."
17
You pray to God and call him Father, but he will judge everyone the same way�by what they do. So while you are visiting here on earth, you should live with respect for God.
18
You know that in the past the way you were living was useless. It was a way of life you learned from those who lived before you. But you were saved from that way of living. You were bought, but not with things that ruin like gold or silver.
19
You were bought with the precious blood of Christ's death. He was a pure and perfect sacrificial Lamb.
20
Christ was chosen before the world was made, but he was shown to the world in these last times for you.
21
You believe in God through Christ. God is the one who raised him from death and gave honor to him. So your faith and your hope are in God.
22
You have made yourselves pure by obeying the truth. Now you can have true love for your brothers and sisters. So love each other deeply�with all your heart.
23
You have been born again. This new life did not come from something that dies. It came from something that cannot die. You were born again through God's life-giving message that lasts forever.
24
The Scriptures say, "Our lives are like the grass of spring, and any glory we enjoy is like the beauty of a wildflower. The grass dries up and dies, and the flower falls to the ground.
25
But the word of the Lord lasts forever." And that word is the Good News that was told to you.
