Old Testament: Job 1:1; 2:1-10
1In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil.
Job 1:1 (NIV)
1Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
3for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.
4I do not sit with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD,
7proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.
9Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,
10in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.
11But I lead a blameless life; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
Psalms 26 (NIV)
1In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,
2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.
3The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
4So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
Hebrews 1:1-4 (NIV)
2Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?"
3"What did Moses command you?" he replied.
4They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away."
5"It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied.
6"But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.'
7'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,
8and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one.
9Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."
10When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this.
11He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her.
12And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery."
13People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.
14When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
15I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
16And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.
Mark 10:2-16 (NIV)
