Paasfees: Die Paaswaak

Nuwe Testament lesing en Psalm

3For surely you know that when we were baptized into union with Christ Jesus, we were baptized into union with his death. 4By our baptism, then, we were buried with him and shared his death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from death by the glorious power of the Father, so also we might live a new life.

5For since we have become one with him in dying as he did, in the same way we shall be one with him by being raised to life as he was. 6And we know that our old being has been put to death with Christ on his cross, in order that the power of the sinful self might be destroyed, so that we should no longer be the slaves of sin. 7For when people die, they are set free from the power of sin. 8Since we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9For we know that Christ has been raised from death and will never die again — death will no longer rule over him. 10And so, because he died, sin has no power over him; and now he lives his life in fellowship with God. 11In the same way you are to think of yourselves as dead, so far as sin is concerned, but living in fellowship with God through Christ Jesus.

A Passover Song

1When the people of Israel left Egypt,

when Jacob's descendants left that foreign land,

2Judah became the Lord's holy people,

Israel became his own possession.

3The Red Sea looked and ran away;

the River Jordan stopped flowing.

4The mountains skipped like goats;

the hills jumped about like lambs.

5What happened, Sea, to make you run away?

And you, O Jordan, why did you stop flowing?

6You mountains, why did you skip like goats?

You hills, why did you jump about like lambs?

7Tremble, earth, at the Lord's coming,

at the presence of the God of Jacob,

8who changes rocks into pools of water

and solid cliffs into flowing springs.
