1 For the First Sabbath. A Psalm of David. The earth and all its fullness belong to the Lord: the whole world and all that dwells in it.
2 For he has founded it upon the seas, and he has prepared it upon the rivers.
3 Who will ascend to the mountain of the Lord? And who will stand in his holy place?
4 The innocent of hands and the clean of heart, who has not received his soul in vain, nor sworn deceitfully to his neighbor.
5 He will receive a blessing from the Lord, and mercy from God, his Saviour.
6 This is the generation that seeks him, that seeks the face of the God of Jacob.
10 And the Lord spoke further to Ahaz, saying:
11 Ask for a sign for yourself from the Lord your God, from the depths below, even to the heights above.
12 And Ahaz said, "I will not ask, for I will not tempt the Lord."
13 And he said: "Then listen, O house of David. Is it such a small thing for you to trouble men, that you must also trouble my God?
14 For this reason, the Lord himself will grant to you a sign. Behold, a virgin will conceive, and she will give birth to a son, and his name will be called Immanuel.
