John 4:16-26 English Standard Version (ESV)

16 Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.” 17 The woman answered him, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You are right in saying, ‘I have no husband’; 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one you now have is not your husband. What you have said is true.” 19 The woman said to him, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you say that in Jerusalem is the place where people ought to worship.” 21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 25 The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ). When he comes, he will tell us all things.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.”

Psalm 10:1-11 English Standard Version (ESV)

10 

Why, O Lord, do you stand far away?

    Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

In arrogance the wicked hotly pursue the poor;

    let them be caught in the schemes that they have devised.

For the wicked boasts of the desires of his soul,

    and the one greedy for gain curses[a] and renounces the Lord.

In the pride of his face[b] the wicked does not seek him;[c]

    all his thoughts are, “There is no God.”

His ways prosper at all times;

    your judgments are on high, out of his sight;

    as for all his foes, he puffs at them.

He says in his heart, “I shall not be moved;

    throughout all generations I shall not meet adversity.”

His mouth is filled with cursing and deceit and oppression;

    under his tongue are mischief and iniquity.

He sits in ambush in the villages;

    in hiding places he murders the innocent.

His eyes stealthily watch for the helpless;

    he lurks in ambush like a lion in his thicket;

he lurks that he may seize the poor;

    he seizes the poor when he draws him into his net.

10 

The helpless are crushed, sink down,

    and fall by his might.

11 

He says in his heart, “God has forgotten,    he has hidden his face, he will never see it.”
