(Memorization Scripture 2-3)
1 Nevertheless the gloom will not be upon her who is distressed,
As when at first He lightly esteemed
The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,
And afterward more heavily oppressed her,
By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan,
In Galilee of the Gentiles.
2 The people who walked in darkness
Have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined.
3 You have multiplied the nation
And increased its joy;
They rejoice before You
According to the joy of harvest,
As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
4 For You have broken the yoke of his burden
And the staff of his shoulder,
The rod of his oppressor,
As in the day of Midian.
5 For every warrior’s sandal from the noisy battle,
And garments rolled in blood,
Will be used for burning and fuel of fire.
One chapter of Proverbs per day in January: Proverbs 13
1 但那受過痛苦的，必不再見幽暗。從前神使西布倫地和拿弗他利地被藐視，末後卻使這沿海的路，約旦河外，外邦人的加利利地，得著榮耀。 2 在黑暗中行走的百姓看見了大光，住在死蔭之地的人有光照耀他們。 3 你使這國民繁多，加增他們的喜樂。他們在你面前歡喜，好像收割的歡喜，像人分擄物那樣的快樂。 4 因為他們所負的重軛和肩頭上的杖，並欺壓他們人的棍，你都已經折斷，好像在米甸的日子一樣。 5 戰士在亂殺之間所穿戴的盔甲，並那滾在血中的衣服，都必作為可燒的，當做火柴。
