Psalm 124-127; 1 Corinthians 7

From today's Bible reading:

Psalm 124:

We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped!

Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

Psalm 125:

Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever.

As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore.

Peace be upon Israel!

Psalm 126:

When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.

Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy

The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad.

Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!

He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 127:

Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.

Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.

It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep.

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!

1 Corinthians 7:

each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.

the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does.

Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.

the wife should not separate from her husband

the husband should not divorce his wife.

God has called you to peace.

For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband?

Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?

Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him.

neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God.

he who was called in the Lord as a slave is a freedman of the Lord.

Likewise he who was free when called is a slave of Christ.

You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men.
