49 Remember your word to your servant,
   in which you have made me hope.
50 This is my comfort in my distress,
   that your promise gives me life.
51 The arrogant utterly deride me,
   but I do not turn away from your law.
52 When I think of your ordinances from of old,
   I take comfort, O Lord.
53 Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked,
   those who forsake your law.
54 Your statutes have been my songs
   wherever I make my home.
55 I remember your name in the night, O Lord,
   and keep your law.
56 This blessing has fallen to me,
   for I have kept your precepts.


57 The Lord is my portion;
   I promise to keep your words.
58 I implore your favour with all my heart;
   be gracious to me according to your promise.
59 When I think of your ways,
   I turn my feet to your decrees;
60 I hurry and do not delay
   to keep your commandments.
61 Though the cords of the wicked ensnare me,
   I do not forget your law.
62 At midnight I rise to praise you,
   because of your righteous ordinances.
63 I am a companion of all who fear you,
   of those who keep your precepts.
64 The earth, O Lord, is full of your steadfast love;
   teach me your statutes.


65 You have dealt well with your servant,
   O Lord, according to your word.
66 Teach me good judgement and knowledge,
   for I believe in your commandments.
67 Before I was humbled I went astray,
   but now I keep your word.
68 You are good and do good;
   teach me your statutes.
69 The arrogant smear me with lies,
   but with my whole heart I keep your precepts.
70 Their hearts are fat and gross,
   but I delight in your law.
71 It is good for me that I was humbled,
   so that I might learn your statutes.
72 The law of your mouth is better to me
   than thousands of gold and silver pieces.


49 Remember your word to your servant,
   in which you have made me hope.
53 Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked,
   those who forsake your law.

Deut. 9:13-21

13Furthermore, the Lord said to me, ‘I have seen that this people is indeed a stubborn people. 14Let me alone that I may destroy them and blot out their name from under heaven; and I will make of you a nation mightier and more numerous than they.’

15 So I turned and went down from the mountain, while the mountain was ablaze; the two tablets of the covenant were in my two hands. 16Then I saw that you had indeed sinned against the Lord your God, by casting for yourselves an image of a calf; you had been quick to turn from the way that the Lord had commanded you. 17So I took hold of the two tablets and flung them from my two hands, smashing them before your eyes. 18Then I lay prostrate before the Lord as before, for forty days and forty nights; I neither ate bread nor drank water, because of all the sin you had committed, provoking the Lord by doing what was evil in his sight. 19For I was afraid that the anger that the Lord bore against you was so fierce that he would destroy you. But the Lord listened to me that time also. 20The Lord was so angry with Aaron that he was ready to destroy him, but I interceded also on behalf of Aaron at that same time. 21Then I took the sinful thing you had made, the calf, and burned it with fire and crushed it, grinding it thoroughly, until it was reduced to dust; and I threw the dust of it into the stream that runs down the mountain.

Heb. 3:12-19


12Take care, brothers and sisters,* that none of you may have an evil, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called ‘today’, so that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. 14For we have become partners of Christ, if only we hold our first confidence firm to the end. 15As it is said,
‘Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.’
16Now who were they who heard and yet were rebellious? Was it not all those who left Egypt under the leadership of Moses? 17But with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, if not to those who were disobedient? 19So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.

John 2:23-3:15

23 When he was in Jerusalem during the Passover festival, many believed in his name because they saw the signs that he was doing. 24But Jesus on his part would not entrust himself to them, because he knew all people 25and needed no one to testify about anyone; for he himself knew what was in everyone.

Nicodemus Visits Jesus

3Now there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews. 2He came to Jesus* by night and said to him, ‘Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do apart from the presence of God.’ 3Jesus answered him, ‘Very truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above.’* 4Nicodemus said to him, ‘How can anyone be born after having grown old? Can one enter a second time into the mother’s womb and be born?’ 5Jesus answered, ‘Very truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. 6What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.* 7Do not be astonished that I said to you, “You* must be born from above.”* 8The wind* blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.’ 9Nicodemus said to him, ‘How can these things be?’ 10Jesus answered him, ‘Are you a teacher of Israel, and yet you do not understand these things?

11 ‘Very truly, I tell you, we speak of what we know and testify to what we have seen; yet you* do not receive our testimony. 12If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? 13No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man.* 14And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.*
