Job 22:1-4, 22:21-23:7

22Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered: 2“Can a mortal be of use to God? Can even the wisest be of service to him? 3Is it any pleasure to the Almighty if you are righteous, or is it gain to him if you make your ways blameless? 4Is it for your piety that he reproves you, and enters into judgment with you?

21“Agree with God, and be at peace; in this way good will come to you. 22Receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart. 23If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored, if you remove unrighteousness from your tents, 24if you treat gold like dust, and gold of Ophir like the stones of the torrent-bed, 25and if the Almighty is your gold and your precious silver, 26then you will delight yourself in the Almighty, and lift up your face to God. 27You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will pay your vows. 28You will decide on a matter, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways. 29When others are humiliated, you say it is pride; for he saves the humble. 30He will deliver even those who are guilty; they will escape because of the cleanness of your hands.”

23Then Job answered: 2“Today also my complaint is bitter; his hand is heavy despite my groaning. 3Oh, that I knew where I might find him, that I might come even to his dwelling! 4I would lay my case before him, and fill my mouth with arguments. 5I would learn what he would answer me, and understand what he would say to me. 6Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? No; but he would give heed to me. 7There an upright person could reason with him, and I should be acquitted forever by my judge.

Acts 13:26-43

26“My brothers, you descendants of Abraham’s family, and others who fear God, to us the message of this salvation has been sent. 27Because the residents of Jerusalem and their leaders did not recognize him or understand the words of the prophets that are read every sabbath, they fulfilled those words by condemning him. 28Even though they found no cause for a sentence of death, they asked Pilate to have him killed. 29When they had carried out everything that was written about him, they took him down from the tree and laid him in a tomb. 30But God raised him from the dead; 31and for many days he appeared to those who came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, and they are now his witnesses to the people. 32And we bring you the good news that what God promised to our ancestors 33he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising Jesus; as also it is written in the second psalm, ‘You are my Son; today I have begotten you.’ 34As to his raising him from the dead, no more to return to corruption, he has spoken in this way, ‘I will give you the holy promises made to David.’ 35Therefore he has also said in another psalm, ‘You will not let your Holy One experience corruption.’ 36For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, died, was laid beside his ancestors, and experienced corruption; 37but he whom God raised up experienced no corruption. 38Let it be known to you therefore, my brothers, that through this man forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you; 39by this Jesus everyone who believes is set free from all those sins from which you could not be freed by the law of Moses. 40Beware, therefore, that what the prophets said does not happen to you: 41‘Look, you scoffers! Be amazed and perish, for in your days I am doing a work, a work that you will never believe, even if someone tells you.’”

42As Paul and Barnabas were going out, the people urged them to speak about these things again the next sabbath. 43When the meeting of the synagogue broke up, many Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who spoke to them and urged them to continue in the grace of God.
