背誦經文：16 但他們的心幾時歸向主，帕子就幾時除去了。17 主就是那靈；主的靈在哪裏，那裏就得以自由。18 我們眾人既然敞著臉得以看見主的榮光，好像從鏡子裏返照，就變成主的形狀，榮上加榮，如同從主的靈變成的。(林後 3：16-18)
Memory Verse: 16 Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:16-18)

§ 「你為何苦待僕人？我為何不在你眼前蒙恩，竟把這管理百姓的重任加在我身上呢？ 12 這百姓豈是我懷的胎，豈是我生下來的呢？你竟對我說：『把他們抱在懷裏，如養育之父抱吃奶的孩子，直抱到你起誓應許給他們祖宗的地去… 14 管理這百姓的責任太重了，我獨自擔當不起。 15 你這樣待我，我若在你眼前蒙恩，求你立時將我殺了，不叫我見自己的苦情。」(民11:11-15)
“11 So Moses said to the Lord, “Why have You afflicted Your servant? And why have I not found favor in Your sight, that You have laid the burden of all these people on me? 12 Did I conceive all these people? Did I beget them, that You should say to me, ‘Carry them in your bosom, as a guardian carries a nursing child,’ to the land which You swore to their fathers?... 14 I am not able to bear all these people alone, because the burden is too heavy for me. 15 If You treat me like this, please kill me here and now—if I have found favor in Your sight—and do not let me see my wretchedness!” (Numbers 11:11-15)
