Day 81

 

John 13

 

13:1 Now before the feast of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that his time had come that he would depart from this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

 

13:2 After supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him,

 

13:3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he came forth from God, and was going to God,

 

13:4 arose from supper, and laid aside his outer garments. He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist.

 

13:5 Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

 

13:6 Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, "Lord, do you wash my feet?"

 

13:7 Jesus answered him, "You don't know what I am doing now, but you will understand later."

 

13:8 Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I don't wash you, you have no part with me."

 

13:9 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!"

 

13:10 Jesus said to him, "Someone who has bathed only needs to have his feet washed, but is completely clean. You are clean, but not all of you."

 

13:11 For he knew him who would betray him, therefore he said, "You are not all clean."

 

13:12 So when he had washed their feet, put his outer garment back on, and sat down again, he said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you?

 

13:13 You call me, 'Teacher' and 'Lord.' You say so correctly, for so I am.

 

13:14 If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.

 

13:15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.

 

13:16 Most certainly I tell you, a servant is not greater than his lord, neither one who is sent greater than he who sent him.

 

13:17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.

 

13:18 I don't speak concerning all of you. I know whom I have chosen. But that the Scripture may be fulfilled, 'He who eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.'

 

13:19 From now on, I tell you before it happens, that when it happens, you may believe that I am he.

 

13:20 Most certainly I tell you, he who receives whomever I send, receives me; and he who receives me, receives him who sent me."

 

13:21 When Jesus had said this, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, "Most certainly I tell you that one of you will betray me."

 

13:22 The disciples looked at one another, perplexed about whom he spoke.

 

13:23 One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was at the table, leaning against Jesus' breast.

 

13:24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, and said to him, "Tell us who it is of whom he speaks."

 

13:25 He, leaning back, as he was, on Jesus' breast, asked him, "Lord, who is it?"

 

13:26 Jesus therefore answered, "It is he to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it." So when he had dipped the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.

 

13:27 After the piece of bread, then Satan entered into him. Then Jesus said to him, "What you do, do quickly."

 

13:28 Now no man at the table knew why he said this to him.

 

13:29 For some thought, because Judas had the money box, that Jesus said to him, "Buy what things we need for the feast," or that he should give something to the poor.

 

13:30 Therefore, having received that morsel, he went out immediately. It was night.

 

13:31 When he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him.

 

13:32 If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and he will glorify him immediately.

 

13:33 Little children, I will be with you a little while longer. You will seek me, and as I said to the Jews, 'Where I am going, you can't come,' so now I tell you.

 

13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, just like I have loved you; that you also love one another.

 

13:35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."

 

13:36 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, where are you going?" Jesus answered, "Where I am going, you can't follow now, but you will follow afterwards."

 

13:37 Peter said to him, "Lord, why can't I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you."

 

13:38 Jesus answered him, "Will you lay down your life for me? Most certainly I tell you, the rooster won't crow until you have denied me three times.

 

Revelation 5

 

5:1 I saw, in the right hand of him who sat on the throne, a book written inside and outside, sealed shut with seven seals.

 

5:2 I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the book, and to break its seals?"

 

5:3 No one in heaven above, or on the earth, or under the earth, was able to open the book, or to look in it.

 

5:4 And I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open the book, or to look in it.

 

5:5 One of the elders said to me, "Don't weep. Behold, the Lion who is of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome; he who opens the book and its seven seals."

 

5:6 I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth.

 

5:7 Then he came, and he took it out of the right hand of him who sat on the throne.

 

5:8 Now when he had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

 

5:9 They sang a new song, saying, "You are worthy to take the book, and to open its seals: for you were killed, and bought us for God with your blood, out of every tribe, language, people, and nation,

 

5:10 and made us kings and priests to our God, and we will reign on earth."

 

5:11 I saw, and I heard something like a voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousands of ten thousands, and thousands of thousands;

 

5:12 saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb who has been killed to receive the power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessing!"

 

5:13 I heard every created thing which is in heaven, on the earth, under the earth, on the sea, and everything in them, saying, "To him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb be the blessing, the honor, the glory, and the dominion, forever and ever! Amen!

 

5:14 The four living creatures said, "Amen!" The elders fell down and worshiped.

 

Revelation 6

 

6:1 I saw that the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, as with a voice of thunder, "Come and see!"

 

6:2 And behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow. A crown was given to him, and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.

 

6:3 When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, "Come!"

 

6:4 Another came forth, a red horse. To him who sat on it was given power to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another. There was given to him a great sword.

 

6:5 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, "Come and see!" And behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a balance in his hand.

 

6:6 I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart  of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius! Don't damage the oil and the wine!"

 

6:7 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see!"

 

6:8 And behold, a pale horse, and he who sat on it, his name was Death.  Hell followed with him. Authority over one fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with famine, with death, and by the wild animals of the earth was given to him.

 

6:9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been killed for the Word of God, and for the testimony of the Lamb which they had.

 

6:10 They cried with a loud voice, saying, "How long, Master, the holy and true, until you judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"

 

6:11 A long white robe was given to each of them. They were told that they should rest yet for a while, until their fellow servants and their brothers,  who would also be killed even as they were, should complete their course.

 

6:12 I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became as blood.

 

6:13 The stars of the sky fell to the earth, like a fig tree dropping its unripe figs when it is shaken by a great wind.

 

6:14 The sky was removed like a scroll when it is rolled up. Every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

 

6:15 The kings of the earth, the princes, the commanding officers, the rich, the strong, and every slave and free person, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains.

 

6:16 They told the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb,


6:17 for the great day of his wrath has come; and who is able to stand?"
