Joanne Kelly: "Jack Hunter"
Hinansho o mitsukemasu
Shelter from swelter
reduces the hotness of heat
that cooks your poor feet
in the street that repeats
the heat like a smelter.
The reduction provides construction.
It is a refuge from the 'too much' of 'that such'
that threatens the destruction of your fluxions.
Protection will deliver you from harm.
You won't 'buy the farm.'
It will keep you from falling to death by disease.
You will find your way to shade and cool breeze.
Faithfulness beats fate.
You will not lose to hate.
You will sere the fear of terror by night.
You won't have to fight or take flight
when you play it right.
The attack that comes by day
will have to go away.
The malady that stalks in the darkness
won't leave you heartless.
The sickness that strikes at mid-day
won't cause you to stray.
The right of possession and redemption is yours.
The great outdoors implores you to score for what you adore.
A thousand will stand by your side.
Ten thousand will supply a high like peptides
inside where you reside.
Good work is your treasure. Be ready to care.
Show the world that you know how to share.
Build a foundation that won't shift where you stand.
Your plan to expand will find that it can.
The angels are angles that show you the light.
They shine for your mind to see what is right.
You will use your own hands
to decipher your plan.
You will not break if a rock
gives you a shock.
You will keep your distance from venom
to maintain your plenum.
You will respect Mr. Gator
like an instant crusader.
He's not a good grader.
Live a good life. Learn from the strong
that sifts right from wrong.
You will be remembered long
for singing your song
to please the whole throng.
6 Jeremiah said, The word of the Lord came to me: 7Hanamel son of your uncle Shallum is going to come to you and say, ‘Buy my field that is at Anathoth, for the right of redemption by purchase is yours.’ 8Then my cousin Hanamel came to me in the court of the guard, in accordance with the word of the Lord, and said to me, ‘Buy my field that is at Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, for the right of possession and redemption is yours; buy it for yourself.’ Then I knew that this was the word of the Lord.
17 As for those who in the present age are rich, command them not to be haughty, or to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but rather on God who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, 19thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life.
25But Abraham said, “Child, remember that during your lifetime you received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in agony. 26Besides all this, between you and us a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who might want to pass from here to you cannot do so, and no one can cross from there to us.”
91 Qui habitat
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, *
abides under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 He shall say to the Lord,
"You are my refuge and my stronghold, *
my God in whom I put my trust."
3 He shall deliver you from the snare of the hunter *
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with his pinions,
and you shall find refuge under his wings; *
his faithfulness shall be a shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of any terror by night, *
nor of the arrow that flies by day;
6 Of the plague that stalks in the darkness, *
nor of the sickness that lays waste at mid-day.
7 A thousand shall fall at your side
and ten thousand at your right hand, *
but it shall not come near you.
8 Your eyes have only to behold *
to see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord your refuge, *
and the Most High your habitation,
10 There shall no evil happen to you, *
neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over you, *
to keep you in all your ways.
12 They shall bear you in their hands, *
lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder; *
you shall trample the young lion and the serpent under your feet.
14 Because he is bound to me in love,
therefore will I deliver him; *
I will protect him, because he knows my Name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him; *
I am with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and bring him to honor.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, *
and show him my salvation.
