Psalm 70

1  O God, make speed to save me; 
   O Lord, make haste to help me.
2  Let those who seek my life
      be put to shame and confusion; 
   let them be turned back and disgraced
      who wish me evil.
3  Let those who mock and deride me 
   turn back because of their shame.
4  But let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; 
   let those who love your salvation say always, ‘Great is the Lord!’
5  As for me, I am poor and needy; 
   come to me quickly, O God.
6  You are my help and my deliverer; 
   O Lord, do not delay.

Psalm 75

1  We give you thanks, O God, we give you thanks, 
   for your name is near, as your wonderful deeds declare.
2  ‘I will seize the appointed time; 
   I, the Lord, will judge with equity.
3  ‘Though the earth reels and all that dwell in her, 
   it is I that hold her pillars steady.
4  ‘To the boasters I say, “Boast no longer,” 
   and to the wicked, “Do not lift up your horn.
5  ‘ “Do not lift up your horn on high; 
   do not speak with a stiff neck.” ’
6  For neither from the east nor from the west, 
   nor yet from the wilderness comes exaltation.
7  But God alone is judge; 
   he puts down one and raises up another.
8  For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, 
   well mixed and full of foaming wine.
9  He pours it out for all the wicked of the earth; 
   they shall drink it, and drain the dregs.
10  But I will rejoice for ever 
   and make music to the God of Jacob.
11  All the horns of the wicked will I break, 
   but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

Isaiah 8: 1-15

Isaiah’s Son a Sign of the Assyrian Invasion

8Then the Lord said to me, Take a large tablet and write on it in common characters, ‘Belonging to Maher-shalal-hash-baz’,* 2and have it attested* for me by reliable witnesses, the priest Uriah and Zechariah son of Jeberechiah. 3And I went to the prophetess, and she conceived and bore a son. Then the Lord said to me, Name him Maher-shalal-hash-baz; 4for before the child knows how to call ‘My father’ or ‘My mother’, the wealth of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria will be carried away by the king of Assyria.

5 The Lord spoke to me again: 6Because this people has refused the waters of Shiloah that flow gently, and melt in fear before* Rezin and the son of Remaliah; 7therefore, the Lord is bringing up against it the mighty flood waters of the River, the king of Assyria and all his glory; it will rise above all its channels and overflow all its banks; 8it will sweep on into Judah as a flood, and, pouring over, it will reach up to the neck; and its outspread wings will fill the breadth of your land, O Immanuel.


9 Band together, you peoples, and be dismayed;
   listen, all you far countries;
gird yourselves and be dismayed;
   gird yourselves and be dismayed!
10 Take counsel together, but it shall be brought to naught;
   speak a word, but it will not stand,
   for God is with us.*

11 For the Lord spoke thus to me while his hand was strong upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people, saying: 12Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and do not fear what it fears, or be in dread. 13But the Lord of hosts, him you shall regard as holy; let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14He will become a sanctuary, a stone one strikes against; for both houses of Israel he will become a rock one stumbles over—a trap and a snare for the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 15And many among them shall stumble; they shall fall and be broken; they shall be snared and taken.
