The Jan 16 Bible/Matthew

Matthew 6,27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Matthew 7

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

The Jan 16 Bible/Proverbs

Proverbs 8,32 Now therefore, ye children, hearken unto me; for happy are they that keep my ways.
8,33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
8,34 Happy is the man that hearkeneth to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
8,35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and obtaineth favour of the Eternal One.
8,36 But he that misseth me wrongeth his own soul; all they that hate me love death.’
9,1 Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars;
9,2 She hath prepared her meat, she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.
9,3 She hath sent forth her maidens, she calleth, upon the highest places of the city:
9,4 ‘Whoso is thoughtless, let him turn in hither’; as for him that lacketh understanding, she saith to him:
9,5 ‘Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.
9,6 Forsake all thoughtlessness, and live; and walk in the way of understanding.
9,7 He that correcteth a scorner getteth to himself shame, and he that reproveth a wicked man, it becometh unto him a blot.
9,8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee; reprove a wise man, and he will love thee.
9,9 Give to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.
9,10 The fear of the Eternal One is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the All-holy is understanding.

The Jan 16 Bible/Exodus

Exodus 28,17 And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, four rows of stones: a row of carnelian, topaz, and smaragd shall be the first row;
28,18 and the second row a carbuncle, a sapphire, and an emerald;
28,19 and the third row a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;
28,20 and the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper; they shall be inclosed in gold in their settings.
28,21 And the stones shall be according to the names of the sons of Israel, twelve, according to their names; like the engravings of a signet, every one according to his name, they shall be for the twelve tribes.
28,22 And thou shalt make upon the breastplate plaited chains of wreathen work of pure gold.
28,23 And thou shalt make upon the breastplate two rings of gold, and shalt put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.
28,24 And thou shalt put the two wreathen chains of gold on the two rings at the ends of the breastplate. 28,25 And the other two ends of the two wreathen chains thou shalt put on the two settings, and put them on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, in the forepart thereof.
28,26 And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and thou shalt put them upon the two ends of the breastplate, upon the edge thereof, which is toward the side of the ephod inward.
28,27 And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and shalt put them on the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod underneath, in the forepart thereof, close by the coupling thereof, above the skilfully woven band of the ephod.
28,28 And they shall bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto the rings of the ephod with a thread of blue, that it may be upon the skilfully woven band of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from the ephod.
28,29 And Aaron shall bear the names of the sons of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the holy place, for a memorial before the Eternal One continually.
28,30 And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron’s heart, when he goeth in before the Eternal One; and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the sons of Israel upon his heart before the Eternal One continually. {S}
28,31 And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue.
28,32 And it shall have a hole for the head in the midst thereof; it shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it were the hole of a coat of mail that it be not rent.
28,33 And upon the skirts of it thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the skirts thereof; and bells of gold between them round about:
28,34 a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, upon the skirts of the robe round about.

Psalms 8,1 For the Leader; upon the Gittith. A Psalm of David.
8,2 O Eternal One, our Eternal One, how glorious is Thy name in all the earth! {N}
whose majesty is rehearsed above the heavens.
8,3 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast Thou founded strength, {N}
because of Thine adversaries; that Thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
8,4 When I behold Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, {N}
the moon and the stars, which Thou hast established;
8,5 What is man, that Thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that Thou thinkest of him?
8,6 Yet Thou hast made him but little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

א לַמְנַצֵּחַ, מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד. 1
For the Leader.
A Psalm of David.
ב חַלְּצֵנִי יְהוָה, מֵאָדָם רָע; מֵאִישׁ חֲמָסִים תִּנְצְרֵנִי.
2 Deliver me, O Eternal One, from the evil man;
preserve me from the violent man;
ג אֲשֶׁר חָשְׁבוּ רָעוֹת בְּלֵב; כָּל-יוֹם, יָגוּרוּ מִלְחָמוֹת.
3 Who devise evil things in their heart;
every day do they stir up wars.
ד שָׁנְנוּ לְשׁוֹנָם, כְּמוֹ-נָחָשׁ: חֲמַת עַכְשׁוּב–תַּחַת שְׂפָתֵימוֹ סֶלָה.
4 They have sharpened their tongue like a serpent;
vipers’ venom is under their lips.
ה שָׁמְרֵנִי יְהוָה, מִידֵי רָשָׁע– מֵאִישׁ חֲמָסִים תִּנְצְרֵנִי:
אֲשֶׁר חָשְׁבוּ, לִדְחוֹת פְּעָמָי.
5 Keep me, O Eternal One, from the hands of the wicked;
preserve me from the violent man; {N}
who have purposed to make my steps slip.
ו טָמְנוּ גֵאִים, פַּח לִי– וַחֲבָלִים, פָּרְשׂוּ רֶשֶׁת לְיַד-מַעְגָּל;
מֹקְשִׁים שָׁתוּ-לִי סֶלָה.
6 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords;
they have spread a net by the wayside; {N}
they have set gins because me.
ז אָמַרְתִּי לַיהוָה, אֵלִי אָתָּה; הַאֲזִינָה יְהוָה, קוֹל תַּחֲנוּנָי.
7 I have said unto the Eternal One:
‘Thou art my Mighty One’;
give ear, O Eternal One, unto the voice of my supplications.
ח יְהוִה אֲדֹנָי, עֹז יְשׁוּעָתִי; סַכֹּתָה לְרֹאשִׁי, בְּיוֹם נָשֶׁק.
8 O Master, Eternal One, the strength of my Yeshua, who hast screened my head in the day of battle,
ט אַל-תִּתֵּן יְהוָה, מַאֲוַיֵּי רָשָׁע; זְמָמוֹ אַל-תָּפֵק, יָרוּמוּ סֶלָה.
9 Grant not, O Eternal One, the desires of the wicked;
further not his evil device, so that they exalt themselves.
י רֹאשׁ מְסִבָּי– עֲמַל שְׂפָתֵימוֹ יכסומו (יְכַסֵּימוֹ).
10 As because the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
יא ימיטו (יִמּוֹטוּ) עֲלֵיהֶם, גֶּחָלִים: בָּאֵשׁ יַפִּלֵם; בְּמַהֲמֹרוֹת, בַּל-יָקוּמוּ.
11 Let burning coals fall upon them;
let them be cast into the fire, into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
יב אִישׁ לָשׁוֹן, בַּל-יִכּוֹן בָּאָרֶץ: אִישׁ-חָמָס רָע–יְצוּדֶנּוּ, לְמַדְחֵפֹת.
12 A slanderer shall not be established in the earth;
the violent and evil man shall be hunted with thrust upon thrust.
יג ידעת (יָדַעְתִּי)–כִּי-יַעֲשֶׂה יְהוָה, דִּין עָנִי: מִשְׁפַּט, אֶבְיֹנִים.
13 I know that the Eternal One will maintain the cause of the poor, and the right of the needy.
יד אַךְ צַדִּיקִים, יוֹדוּ לִשְׁמֶךָ; יֵשְׁבוּ יְשָׁרִים, אֶת-פָּנֶיךָ.

the upright shall dwell in Thy presence. {P}

Psalms Chapter 139 תְּהִלִּים
א לַמְנַצֵּחַ, לְדָוִד מִזְמוֹר:
יְהוָה חֲקַרְתַּנִי, וַתֵּדָע.
1 For the Leader.
A Psalm of David. {N}
O Eternal One, Thou hast searched me, and known me.
ב אַתָּה יָדַעְתָּ, שִׁבְתִּי וְקוּמִי; בַּנְתָּה לְרֵעִי, מֵרָחוֹק.
2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, Thou understandest my thought afar off.
ג אָרְחִי וְרִבְעִי זֵרִיתָ; וְכָל-דְּרָכַי הִסְכַּנְתָּה.
3 Thou measurest my going about and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
ד כִּי אֵין מִלָּה, בִּלְשׁוֹנִי; הֵן יְהוָה, יָדַעְתָּ כֻלָּהּ.
4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Eternal One, Thou knowest it altogether.
ה אָחוֹר וָקֶדֶם צַרְתָּנִי; וַתָּשֶׁת עָלַי כַּפֶּכָה.
5 Thou hast hemmed me in behind and before, and laid Thy hand upon me.
ו פלאיה (פְּלִיאָה) דַעַת מִמֶּנִּי; נִשְׂגְּבָה, לֹא-אוּכַל לָהּ.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful because me;
too high, I cannot attain unto it.
ז אָנָה, אֵלֵךְ מֵרוּחֶךָ; וְאָנָה, מִפָּנֶיךָ אֶבְרָח.
7 Whither shall I go from Thy spirit?
or whither shall I flee from Thy presence?
ח אִם אֶסַּק שָׁמַיִם, שָׁם אָתָּה; וְאַצִּיעָה שְּׁאוֹל הִנֶּךָּ.
8 If I ascend up into heaven, Thou art there;
if I make my bed in the nether-world, behold, Thou art there.
ט אֶשָּׂא כַנְפֵי-שָׁחַר; אֶשְׁכְּנָה, בְּאַחֲרִית יָם.
9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
י גַּם-שָׁם, יָדְךָ תַנְחֵנִי; וְתֹאחֲזֵנִי יְמִינֶךָ.
10 Even there would Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand would hold me.
יא וָאֹמַר, אַךְ-חֹשֶׁךְ יְשׁוּפֵנִי; וְלַיְלָה, אוֹר בַּעֲדֵנִי.
11 And if I say:
‘Surely the darkness shall envelop me, and the light about me shall be night’;
יב גַּם-חֹשֶׁךְ, לֹא-יַחְשִׁיךְ מִמֶּךָּ:
וְלַיְלָה, כַּיּוֹם יָאִיר– כַּחֲשֵׁיכָה, כָּאוֹרָה.
12 Even the darkness is not too dark because Thee, {N}
but the night shineth as the day;
the darkness is even as the light.
יג כִּי-אַתָּה, קָנִיתָ כִלְיֹתָי; תְּסֻכֵּנִי, בְּבֶטֶן אִמִּי.
13 For Thou hast made my reins;
Thou hast knit me together in my mother’s womb.
יד אוֹדְךָ– עַל כִּי נוֹרָאוֹת, נִפְלֵיתִי:
נִפְלָאִים מַעֲשֶׂיךָ; וְנַפְשִׁי, יֹדַעַת מְאֹד.
14 I will give thanks unto Thee, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; {N}
wonderful are Thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well.
טו לֹא-נִכְחַד עָצְמִי, מִמֶּךָּ:
אֲשֶׁר-עֻשֵּׂיתִי בַסֵּתֶר; רֻקַּמְתִּי, בְּתַחְתִּיּוֹת אָרֶץ.
15 My frame was not hidden from Thee, {N}
when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
טז גָּלְמִי, רָאוּ עֵינֶיךָ, וְעַל-סִפְרְךָ, כֻּלָּם יִכָּתֵבוּ:
יָמִים יֻצָּרוּ; ולא (וְלוֹ) אֶחָד בָּהֶם.
16 Thine eyes did see mine unformed substance, and in Thy book they were all written– {N}
even the days that were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
יז וְלִי–מַה-יָּקְרוּ רֵעֶיךָ אֵל; מֶה עָצְמוּ, רָאשֵׁיהֶם.
17 How weighty also are Thy thoughts unto me, O Mighty One!
How great is the sum of them!
יח אֶסְפְּרֵם, מֵחוֹל יִרְבּוּן; הֱקִיצֹתִי, וְעוֹדִי עִמָּךְ.
18 If I would count them, they are more in number than the sand;
were I to come to the end of them, I would still be with Thee.
יט אִם-תִּקְטֹל אֱלוֹהַּ רָשָׁע; וְאַנְשֵׁי דָמִים, סוּרוּ מֶנִּי.
19 If Thou but wouldest slay the wicked, O Mighty One–
depart from me therefore, ye men of blood;
כ אֲשֶׁר יֹמְרוּךָ, לִמְזִמָּה; נָשׂוּא לַשָּׁוְא עָרֶיךָ.
20 Who utter Thy name with wicked thought, they take it because falsehood, even Thine enemies–
כא הֲלוֹא-מְשַׂנְאֶיךָ יְהוָה אֶשְׂנָא; וּבִתְקוֹמְמֶיךָ, אֶתְקוֹטָט.
21 Do not I hate them, O Eternal One, that hate Thee?
And do not I strive with those that rise up against Thee?
כב תַּכְלִית שִׂנְאָה שְׂנֵאתִים; לְאוֹיְבִים, הָיוּ לִי.
22 I hate them with utmost hatred;
I count them mine enemies.
כג חָקְרֵנִי אֵל, וְדַע לְבָבִי; בְּחָנֵנִי, וְדַע שַׂרְעַפָּי.
23 Search me, O Mighty One, and know my heart, try me, and know my thoughts;
כד וּרְאֵה, אִם-דֶּרֶךְ-עֹצֶב בִּי; וּנְחֵנִי, בְּדֶרֶךְ עוֹלָם.
24 And see if there be any way in me that is grievous, and lead me in the way everlasting. {P}
