14For the palace is forsaken,
the populous city deserted;the hill and the watchtower
will become dens forever,(A) a joy of wild donkeys,
a pasture of flocks; 15until(B) the Spirit is poured upon us from on high,
and(C) the wilderness becomes a fruitful field,
and the fruitful field is deemed a forest. 16Then justice will dwell in the wilderness,
and righteousness abide in the fruitful field. 17(D) And the effect of righteousness will be peace,
and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust[a] forever. 18My people will abide in a peaceful habitation,
in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places. 19(E) And it will hail when the forest falls down,
(F) and the city will be utterly laid low. 20(G) Happy are you who sow beside all waters,
who let the feet of the ox and the donkey range free.
1"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber. 2But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. 5(A) A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers." 6This figure of speech Jesus(B) used with them, but they(C) did not understand what he was saying to them.7So Jesus again said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you,(D) I am the door of the sheep. 8All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. 9I am the door. If anyone enters by me,(E) he will be saved and will go in and out and(F) find pasture. 10The thief comes only to steal and(G) kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

21So Balaam rose in the morning and saddled his donkey and went with the princes of Moab.
24(A) A dispute also arose among them, as to which of them was to be regarded as the greatest. 25(B) And he said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles(C) exercise lordship over them, and those in authority over them are called benefactors. 26(D) But not so with you. Rather, let(E) the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves. 27For who is the greater,(F) one who reclines at table or one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at table? But(G) I am among you as the one who serves.28"You are those who have stayed with me(H) in my trials, 29and(I) I assign to you, as my Father assigned to me, a kingdom, 30(J) that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and(K) sit on thrones judging(L) the twelve tribes of Israel.
31"Simon, Simon, behold,(M) Satan demanded to have you,[a](N) that he might sift you like wheat, 32but(O) I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again,(P) strengthen your brothers." 33Peter[b] said to him, "Lord, I am ready to go with you both(Q) to prison and(R) to death." 34(S) Jesus[c] said, "I tell you, Peter, the rooster will not crow this day, until you deny three times that you know me."
35And he said to them, (T) "When I sent you out with no moneybag or knapsack or sandals, did you lack anything?" They said, "Nothing." 36He said to them, "But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one. 37For I tell you that(U) this Scripture must be fulfilled in me:(V) 'And he was numbered with the transgressors.' For(W) what is written about me has its fulfillment." 38And they said, "Look, Lord, here are two(X) swords." And he said to them, (Y) "It is enough."
39(Z) And he came out and went,(AA) as was his custom, to(AB) the Mount of Olives, and the disciples followed him. 40(AC) And when he came to(AD) the place, he said to them, (AE) "Pray that you may not(AF) enter into temptation." 41And he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and(AG) knelt down and prayed, 42saying, (AH) "Father, if you are willing, remove(AI) this cup from me.(AJ) Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done." 43And there appeared to him(AK) an angel from heaven, strengthening him. 44And(AL) being in an agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.[d] 45And when he rose from prayer, he came to the disciples and found them sleeping for sorrow, 46and he said to them, "Why are you sleeping? Rise and(AM) pray that you may not enter into temptation."English Standard Version (ESV) The Holy Bible, English Standard Version Copyright © 2001 by Crossway Bibles, a division of Good News Publishers.
