Psalm 83 (CSB)
PRAYER AGAINST ENEMIES
A song. A psalm of Asaph.
1 God, do not keep silent.
Do not be deaf, God; do not be quiet.
2 See how your enemies make an uproar;
those who hate you have acted arrogantly.,
3 They devise clever schemes against your people;
they conspire against your treasured ones.
4 They say, “Come, lets wipe them out as a nation
so that Israel’s name will no longer be remembered.”
5 For they have conspired with one mind;
they form an alliance against you—
6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
Moab and the Hagrites,
7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek,
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre.
8 Even Assyria has joined them;
they lend support to the sons of Lot.,
9 Deal with them as you did with Midian,
as you did with Sisera
and Jabin at the Kishon River.
10 They were destroyed at En-dor;
they became manure for the ground.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,
and all their tribal leaders like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 who said, “Lets seize God’s pastures for ourselves.”
13 Make them like tumbleweed, my God,
like straw before the wind.
14 As fire burns a forest,
as a flame blazes through mountains,
15 so pursue them with your tempest
and terrify them with your storm.
16 Cover their faces with shame
so that they will seek your name, Lord.
17 Let them be put to shame and terrified forever;
let them perish in disgrace.
18 May they know that you alone—
whose name is the Lord—
are the Most High over the whole earth.
Proverbs 15:25–27 (CSB)
25 The Lord tears apart the house of the proud,
but he protects the widow’s territory.
26 The Lord detests the plans of the one who is evil,
but pleasant words are pure.
27 The one who profits dishonestly troubles his household,
but the one who hates bribes will live.
Luke 24:1–12 (CSB)
24 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came to the tomb, bringing the spices they had prepared. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb. 3 They went in but did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men stood by them in dazzling clothes. 5 So the women were terrified and bowed down to the ground.
“Why are you looking for the living among the dead?” asked the men. 6 “He is not here, but he has risen! Remember how he spoke to you when he was still in Galilee, 7 saying, ‘It is necessary that the Son of Man be betrayed into the hands of sinful men, be crucified, and rise on the third day’?” 8 And they remembered his words.
9 Returning from the tomb, they reported all these things to the Eleven and to all the rest. 10 Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them were telling the apostles these things. 11 But these words seemed like nonsense to them, and they did not believe the women. 12 Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. When he stooped to look in, he saw only the linen cloths., So he went away, amazed at what had happened.
