One resource I use is this series on the Psalms:

Here is Psalm 1,

Psalm 50 and

Psalm 118.

The text scrolling up is useful to understand words that I'm not familiar with aurally.

I find it useful to play 3 or 4 texts (these or others) at the same time, to improve my ability to follow a line of conversation in a distractive environment, and to generally develop parallel processing. A monolingual distractive envuronment has a different effect on thinking than a multilingual one. Playing just one line at a time generally results in my mind being distracted. I find the cycle of attention when there is speech followed by non-attention when there is silence, and so on again as there is speech followed by silence.

I haven't used it, but FWIW, here is John as well.

Γελᾷ δ' ὁ μωρός, κἄν τι μὴ γέλοιον ᾖ
(Menander, Γνῶμαι μονόστιχοι 108)
