Genesis 7:13-17

In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort. And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life. And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in. And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.

Psalm 95:1-3

Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations,
His wonders among all peoples.

Psalm 95

10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns;
     The world also is firmly established,
     It shall not be moved;
     He shall judge the peoples righteously.”
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
     Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;
12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.
     Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice
13 before the Lord.
     For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth.
     He shall judge the world with righteousness,
     And the peoples with His truth.

The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come,
And the voice of the turtledove
Is heard in our land.

Proverbs 12:7

The wicked are overthrown and are no more,
But the house of the righteous will stand.

Proverbs 12

The House of the Righteous Shall Stand

9 Better is the one who is slighted but has a servant,
   Than he who honors himself but lacks bread.

10 A righteous man regards the life of his animal,
     But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.

11 He who tills his land will be satisfied with bread,
     But he who follows frivolity is devoid of understanding.

12 The wicked covet the catch of evil men,
     But the root of the righteous yields fruit.

13 The wicked is ensnared by the transgression of his lips,
     But the righteous will come through trouble.

15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
     But he who heeds counsel is wise.

16 A fool’s wrath is known at once,
     But a prudent man covers shame.

17 He who speaks truth declares righteousness,
     But a false witness, deceit.

20 Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil,
     But counselors of peace have joy.

21 No grave trouble will overtake the righteous,
     But the wicked shall be filled with evil.

22 Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,
     But those who deal truthfully are His delight.

23 A prudent man conceals knowledge,
     But the heart of fools proclaims foolishness.

24 The hand of the diligent will rule,
     But the lazy man will be put to forced labor.

25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression,
     But a good word makes it glad.

26 The righteous should choose his friends carefully,
     For the way of the wicked leads them astray.

27 The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting,
     But diligence is man’s precious possession.
