The Vindication & Salvation of Zion
1 For   Zion’s   sake   I   will   not   keep   silent,   and   for
Jerusalem’s     sake     I     will     not     rest,     until     her
vindication    shines    out    like    the    dawn,    and    her
salvation   like   a   burning   torch. 2 The   nations   shall
see    your    vindication,    and    all    the    kings    your
glory;   and   you   shall   be   called   by   a   new   name
that   the   mouth   of   the   Lord   will   give. 3   You   shall
be   a   crown   of   beauty   in   the   hand   of   the   Lord,
and   a   royal   diadem   in   the   hand   of   your   God. 4
You   shall   no   more   be   termed   Forsaken,   and   your
land   shall   no   more   be   termed   Desolate;   but   you
shall   be   called   My   Delight   Is   in   Her,   and   your
land   Married;   for   the   Lord   delights   in   you,   and
your   land   shall   be   married. 5   For   as   a   young   man
marries   a   young   woman,   so   shall   your   builder
marry   you,   and   as   the   bridegroom   rejoices   over
the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.

Spiritual Gifts
1 Now    concerning    spiritual    gifts,    brothers    and
sisters,   I   do   not   want   you   to   be   uninformed. 2 You
know    that    when    you    were    pagans,    you    were
enticed    and    led    astray    to    idols    that    could    not
speak. 3 Therefore   I   want   you   to   understand   that
no   one   speaking   by   the   Spirit   of   God   ever   says
‘Let   Jesus   be   cursed!’   and   no   one   can   say   ‘Jesus
is   Lord’   except   by   the   Holy   Spirit. 4   Now   there
are   varieties   of   gifts,   but   the   same   Spirit; 5 and
there   are   varieties   of   services,   but   the   same   Lord;
6 and   there   are   varieties   of   activities,   but   it   is   the
same   God   who   activates   all   of   them   in   everyone.
7 To   each   is   given   the   manifestation   of   the   Spirit
for   the   common   good. 8 To   one   is   given   through
the    Spirit    the    utterance    of    wisdom,    and    to
another   the   utterance   of   knowledge   according   to
the   same   Spirit, 9 to   another   faith   by   the   same
Spirit,    to    another    gifts    of    healing    by    the    one
Spirit, 10 to   another   the   working   of   miracles,   to
another   prophecy,   to   another   the   discernment   of
spirits,   to   another   various   kinds   of   tongues,   to
another   the   interpretation   of   tongues. 11 All   these
are   activated   by   one   and   the   same   Spirit,   who
allots   to   each   one   individually   just   as   the   Spirit chooses.
Gospel: John 17:13-23 Jesus Prays for His Disciples
1 3 But   now   I   am   coming   to   you,   and   I   speak
these   things   in   the   world   so   that   they   may   have
my joy made complete in themselves.
14 I   have   given   them   your   word,   and   the   world
has   hated   them   because   they   do   not   belong   to
the world, just as I do not belong to the world.
15 I   am   not   asking   you   to   take   them   out   of   the
world,   but   I   ask   you   to   protect   them   from   the
evil   one. 16 They   do   not   belong   to   the   world,   just
as I do not belong to the world.
17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
18 As   you   have   sent   me   into   the   world,   so   I   have
sent them into the world.
19 And   for   their   sakes   I   sanctify   myself,   so   that
they also may be sanctified in truth.
20   I   ask   not   only   on   behalf   of   these,   but   also   on
behalf   of   those   who   will   believe   in   me   through
their word,
21 that   they   may   all   be   one.   As   you,   Father,   are
in   me   and   I   am   in   you,   may   they   also   be   in   us,
so   that   the   world   may   believe   that   you   have
sent me.
22 The    glory    that    you    have    given    me    I    have
given   them,   so   that   they   may   be   one,   as   we   are
one,
23 I    in    them    and    you    in    me,    that    they    may
become   completely   one,   so   that   the   world   may
know   that   you   have   sent   me   and   have   loved
them even as you have loved me.

The Vindication & Salvation of Zion

1 For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,

and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,

until her vindication shines out like the

dawn, and her salvation like a burning

torch. 2 The nations shall see your

vindication, and all the kings your glory;

and you shall be called by a new name

that the mouth of the LORD will give. 3

You shall be a crown of beauty in the

hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem

in the hand of your God. 4 You shall no

more be termed Forsaken, and your land

shall no more be termed Desolate; but

you shall be called My Delight Is in Her,

and your land Married; for the LORD

delights in you, and your land shall be

married. 5 For as a young man marries a

young woman, so shall your builder

marry you, and as the bridegroom

rejoices over the bride, so shall your God

rejoice over you.

Gospel: John 17:13-23
Jesus Prays for His Disciples
13 But now I am coming to you, and I
speak these things in the world so that
they may have my joy made complete
in themselves. 14 I have given them
your word, and the world has hated
them because they do not belong to the
world, just as I do not belong to the
world. 15 I am not asking you to take
them out of the world, but I ask you to
protect them from the evil one. 16
They do not belong to the world, just
as I do not belong to the world. 17
Sanctify them in the truth; your word
is truth. 18 As you have sent me into
the world, so I have sent them into the
world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify
myself, so that they also may be
sanctified in truth. 20 I ask not only on
behalf of these, but also on behalf of
those who will believe in me through
their word, 21 that they may all be
one. As you, Father, are in me and I
am in you, may they also be in us, so
that the world may believe that you
have sent me. 22 The glory that you
have given me I have given them, so
that they may be one, as we are one,
23 I in them and you in me, that they
may become completely one, so that
the world may know that you have
sent me and have loved them even as
you have loved me.
