Psalm 9; Isaiah 2:6–19; Mark 1:29–39

I Will Recount Your Wonderful Deeds

1 To the choirmaster: according to Muth-labben.2 A Psalm of David.

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;

I will recount all of your gwonderful deeds.

I will be glad and hexult in you;

I will ising praise to your name, jO Most High.

When my enemies turn back,

they stumble and perish before3 your presence.

For you have kmaintained my just cause;

you have lsat on the throne, giving righteous judgment.

You have mrebuked the nations; you have made the wicked perish;

you have nblotted out their name forever and ever.

The enemy came to an end in everlasting ruins;

their cities you rooted out;

the very memory of them has perished.

But the Lord sits enthroned forever;

he has established his throne for justice,

and he ojudges the world with righteousness;

he pjudges the peoples with uprightness.

The Lord is qa stronghold for rthe oppressed,

a stronghold in stimes of trouble.

10  And those who tknow your name put their trust in you,

for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

11  Sing praises to the Lord, who usits enthroned in Zion!

Tell among the peoples his vdeeds!

12  For he who wavenges blood is mindful of them;

he xdoes not forget the cry of the afflicted.

13  yBe gracious to me, O Lord!

See my affliction from those who hate me,

O you who lift me up from zthe gates of death,

14  that I may recount all your praises,

that in the gates of athe daughter of Zion

I may brejoice in your salvation.

15  The nations have sunk in cthe pit that they made;

in dthe net that they hid, their own foot has been caught.

16  The Lord has made himself eknown; he has executed judgment;

the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. Higgaion.4 Selah

17  The wicked shall freturn to Sheol,

all the nations that gforget God.

18  For the needy shall not always be forgotten,

and hthe hope of the poor shall not perish forever.

19  iArise, O Lord! Let not jman prevail;

let the nations be judged before you!

20  Put them in fear, O Lord!

Let the nations know that they are but jmen! Selah


The Day of the Lord

For you have rejected your people,

the house of Jacob,

because they are full of things tfrom the east

and uof fortune-tellers vlike the Philistines,

and they wstrike hands with the children of foreigners.

Their land is xfilled with silver and gold,

and there is no end to their treasures;

their land is yfilled with horses,

and there is no end to their chariots.

Their land is zfilled with idols;

they bow down to athe work of their hands,

to what their own fingers have made.

So man bis humbled,

and each one bis brought low

do not forgive them!

10  cEnter into the rock

and hide in the dust

dfrom before the terror of the Lord,

and from the splendor of his majesty.

11  eThe haughty looks of man shall be brought low,

and the lofty pride of men shall be humbled,

and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.

12  fFor the Lord of hosts has a day

against all that is proud and lofty,

against all that is lifted upand it shall be brought low;

13  against all the gcedars of Lebanon,

lofty and lifted up;

and against all the hoaks of Bashan;

14  against all ithe lofty mountains,

and against all the uplifted hills;

15  against every high tower,

and against every fortified wall;

16  against all jthe ships of Tarshish,

and against all the beautiful craft.

17  kAnd the haughtiness of man shall be humbled,

and the lofty pride of men shall be brought low,

and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.

18  lAnd the idols shall utterly pass away.

19  mAnd people shall enter the caves of the rocks

and the holes of the ground,1

from before the terror of the Lord,

and from the splendor of his majesty,

nwhen he rises to terrify the earth.


Jesus Heals Many

29 vAnd immediately he1 wleft the synagogue and entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 Now xSimon's mother-in-law lay ill with a fever, and immediately they told him about her. 31 And he came and ytook her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

32 That evening at sundown they brought to him all who were sick or zoppressed by demons. 33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door. 34 aAnd he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons. And bhe would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.

Jesus Preaches in Galilee

35 cAnd rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and dthere he prayed. 36 And Simon and those who were with him searched for him, 37 and they found him and said to him, eEveryone is looking for you. 38 And he said to them, Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for fthat is why I came out. 39 gAnd hhe went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out demons.
