Haazinu-4 “I will hide My face”

Erev Yom Teruah 9-24-2014Chapter 32 Deuteronomy

19. And THE-ETERNAL-ONE saw this

and became angry, provoked by His sons and daughters.

יט. וַיַּרְא יְהֹוָה וַיִּנְאָץ מִכַּעַס בָּנָיו וּבְנֹתָיו:
20. And He said,

"I will hide My face from them.
I will see what their end will be, for they are a generation of changes;
they are not as My sons whom I have reared.

כ. וַיֹּאמֶר אַסְתִּירָה פָנַי מֵהֶם אֶרְאֶה מָה אַחֲרִיתָם כִּי דוֹר תַּהְפֻּכֹת הֵמָּה בָּנִים לֹא אֵמֻן בָּם:
21. They have provoked My jealousy with a non god, provoked My anger with their vanities.
Thus, I will provoke their jealousy with a non people,
provoke their anger with a foolish nation.
כא. הֵם קִנְאוּנִי בְלֹא אֵל כִּעֲסוּנִי בְּהַבְלֵיהֶם וַאֲנִי אַקְנִיאֵם בְּלֹא עָם בְּגוֹי נָבָל אַכְעִיסֵם:
22. For a fire blazed in My wrath, and burned to the lowest depths.
It consumed the land and its produce, setting aflame the foundations of mountains.
כב. כִּי אֵשׁ קָדְחָה בְאַפִּי וַתִּיקַד עַד שְׁאוֹל תַּחְתִּית וַתֹּאכַל אֶרֶץ וִיבֻלָהּ וַתְּלַהֵט מוֹסְדֵי הָרִים:
23. I will link evils upon them. I will use up My arrows on them. כג. אַסְפֶּה עָלֵימוֹ רָעוֹת חִצַּי אֲכַלֶּה בָּם:
24. They will sprout hair from famine, attacked by demons, excised by Meriri.
I will incite the teeth of livestock upon them,
with the venom of creatures that slither in the dust.
כד. מְזֵי רָעָב וּלְחֻמֵי רֶשֶׁף וְקֶטֶב מְרִירִי וְשֶׁן בְּהֵמֹת אֲשַׁלַּח בָּם עִם חֲמַת זֹחֲלֵי עָפָר:
25. From outside, the sword will bereave, and terror from within; young men and maidens,
suckling babes with venerable elders.
כה. מִחוּץ תְּשַׁכֶּל חֶרֶב וּמֵחֲדָרִים אֵימָה גַּם בָּחוּר גַּם בְּתוּלָה יוֹנֵק עִם אִישׁ שֵׂיבָה:
26. I said that I would make an end of them, eradicate their remembrance from mankind. כו. אָמַרְתִּי אַפְאֵיהֶם אַשְׁבִּיתָה מֵאֱנוֹשׁ זִכְרָם:
27. Were it not that the enemy’s wrath was heaped up, lest their adversaries distort;
lest they claim,
"Our hand was triumphant! The Lord did none of this!"
כז. לוּלֵי כַּעַס אוֹיֵב אָגוּר פֶּן יְנַכְּרוּ צָרֵימוֹ פֶּן יֹאמְרוּ יָדֵנוּ רָמָה וְלֹא יְהֹוָה פָּעַל כָּל זֹאת:
28. For they are a nation devoid of counsel, and they have no understanding. כח. כִּי גוֹי אֹבַד עֵצוֹת הֵמָּה וְאֵין בָּהֶם תְּבוּנָה:

JESUSbible-II 9-24-2014*
Joshua 4,1 And it came to pass,

when all the nation were clean passed over the Jordan, {P}

that JEHOVAH spoke unto Joshua, saying:
4,2 ‘Take you twelve men out of the people,
out of every tribe a man,
4,3 and command ye them, saying:
Take you hence out of the midst of the Jordan,
out of the place where the priests’ feet stood,
twelve stones made ready,
and carry them over with you,
and lay them down in the lodging-place,
where ye shall lodge this night.’ {S}
4,4 Then Joshua called the twelve men,
whom he had prepared of the sons of Israel,
out of every tribe a man; 4,5 and Joshua said unto them:
‘Pass on before the ark of JEHOVAH your God into the midst of the Jordan,
and take you up every man of you a stone upon his shoulder,
according unto the number of the tribes of the sons of Israel;
4,6 that this may be a sign among you,
that when your sons ask in time to come, saying:
What mean ye by these stones?
4,7 then ye shall say unto them:
Because the waters of the Jordan were cut off
before the ark of the covenant of JEHOVAH;
when it passed over the Jordan,
the waters of the Jordan were cut off;
and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the sons of Israel for ever.’

4,8 And the sons of Israel did so as Joshua commanded,
and took up twelve stones out of the midst of the Jordan,
as JEHOVAH spoke unto Joshua,
according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Israel;
and they carried them over with them unto the place where they lodged,
and laid them down there.
4,9 Joshua also set up twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan,
in the place where the feet of the priests that bore the ark of the covenant stood;
and they are there unto this day.
4,10 And the priests that bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan,
until every thing was finished that JEHOVAH commanded Joshua to speak unto the people,
according to all that Moses commanded Joshua;
and the people hastened and passed over.
4,11 And it came to pass,
when all the people were clean passed over,
that the ark of JEHOVAH passed on,
and the priests,
before the people.
4,12 And the sons of Reuben, and the sons of Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh,
passed on armed before the sons of Israel,
as Moses spoke unto them;
4,13 about forty thousand ready armed for war passed on in the presence of JEHOVAH unto battle,
to the plains of Jericho. {S}
4,14 On that day JEHOVAH magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel;
and they trusted him,
as they trusted Moses,
all the days of his life. {P}

4,15 And JEHOVAH spoke unto Joshua, saying:
4,16 ‘Command the priests that bear the ark of the testimony,
that they come up out of the Jordan.’
4,17 Joshua therefore commanded the priests, saying:
‘Come ye up out of the Jordan.’
4,18 And it came to pass,
as the priests that bore the ark of the covenant of JEHOVAH came up out of the midst of the Jordan,
as soon as the soles of the priests’ feet were drawn up unto the dry ground,
that the waters of the Jordan returned unto their place,
and went over all its banks,
as aforetime.
4,19 And the people came up out of the Jordan on the tenth day* of the first month,
and encamped in Gilgal,
on the east border of Jericho.
4,20 And those twelve stones,
which they took out of the Jordan,
did Joshua set up in Gilgal.
4,21 And he spoke unto the sons of Israel, saying:
‘When your sons shall ask their fathers in time to come, saying:
What mean these stones?
4,22 then ye shall let your sons know, saying:
Israel came over this Jordan on dry land.
4,23 For JEHOVAH your God dried up the waters of Jordan from before you,
until ye were passed over,
as JEHOVAH your God did to the Red Sea,
which He dried up from before us,
until we were passed over,
4,24 that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of JEHOVAH,
that it is mighty;
that ye may fear JEHOVAH your God for ever.’ {P}

9-25-2014, JESUS birthday today.

Yom Teruah [traditionally recognized as Rosh Hashana, the New Year] is the Feast of Trumpets.

The trumpets are only blown to call together the army.

5,1 And it came to pass,
when all the kings of the Amorites,
that were beyond the Jordan westward,
and all the kings of the Canaanites,
that were by the sea,
heard how that JEHOVAH had dried up the waters of the Jordan from before the sons of Israel,
until they were passed over,
that their heart melted,
neither was there spirit in them any more,
because of the sons of Israel. {P}

5,2 At that time JEHOVAH said unto Joshua:
‘Make thee knives of flint,
and circumcise again the sons of Israel the second time.’
5,3 And Joshua made him knives of flint,
and circumcised the sons of Israel at Gibeath-ha-araloth.
5,4 And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise:
all the people that came forth out of Egypt,
that were males,
even all the men of war,
died in the wilderness by the way,
after they came forth out of Egypt.
5,5 For all the people that came out were circumcised;
but all the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt,
had not been circumcised.
5,6 For the sons of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness,
till all the nation,
even the men of war that came forth out of Egypt,
were consumed,
because they hearkened not unto the voice of JEHOVAH;
unto whom JEHOVAH swore that He would not let them see the land
which JEHOVAH swore unto their fathers that He would give us,
a land flowing with milk and honey.
5,7 And He raised up their sons in their stead;
them did Joshua circumcise;
for they were uncircumcised,
because they had not been circumcised by the way.
5,8 And it came to pass,
when all the nation were circumcised,
every one of them,
that they abode in their places in the camp,
till they were whole. {P}

5,9 And JEHOVAH said unto Joshua:
‘This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you.’
Wherefore the name of that place was called Gilgal, unto this day.
5,10 And the sons of Israel encamped in Gilgal;
and they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho.
5,11 And they did eat of the produce of the land on the morrow after the passover,
unleavened cakes and parched corn,
in the selfsame day.
5,12 And the manna ceased on the morrow,
after they had eaten of the produce of the land;
neither had the sons of Israel manna any more;
but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year. {S}
5,13 And it came to pass,
when Joshua was by Jericho,
that he lifted up his eyes and looked,
and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand;
and Joshua went unto him,
and said unto him:
‘Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?’
5,14 And he said:
‘Nay, but I am captain of the host of JEHOVAH;
I am now come.’
And Joshua fell on his face to the earth,
and bowed down, and said unto him:
‘What saith my lord unto his servant?’
5,15 And the captain of JEHOVAH’S host said unto Joshua:
‘Put off thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy.’
And Joshua did so.

Nahum Chapter 3

1 Woe to the bloody city! It is all full of lies and rapine; the prey departeth not. 2 Hark! the whip, and hark! the rattling of the wheels; and prancing horses, and bounding chariots; 3 The horseman charging, and the flashing sword, and the glittering spear; and a multitude of slain, and a heap of carcases; and there is no end of the corpses, and they stumble upon their corpses; 4 Because of the multitude of the harlotries of the well-favoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her harlotries, and families through her witchcrafts. 5 Behold, I am against thee, saith JEHOVAH of hosts, and I will uncover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame. 6 And I will cast detestable things upon thee, and make thee vile, and will make thee as dung. 7 And it shall come to pass, that all they that look upon thee shall flee from thee, and say:

‘Nineveh is laid waste; who will bemoan her? whence shall I seek comforters for thee?’

8 Art thou better than No-amon, that was situate among the rivers, that had the waters round about her; whose rampart was the sea, and of the sea her wall? 9 Ethiopia and Egypt were thy strength, and it was infinite; Put and Lubim were thy helpers. 10 Yet was she carried away, she went into captivity; her young children also were dashed in pieces at the head of all the streets; and they cast lots for her honourable men, and all her great men were bound in chains. 11 Thou also shalt be drunken, thou shalt swoon; thou also shalt seek a refuge because of the enemy. 12 All thy fortresses shall be like fig-trees with the first-ripe figs: if they be shaken, they fall into the mouth of the eater. 13 Behold, thy people in the midst of thee are women; the gates of thy land are set wide open unto thine enemies; the fire hath devoured thy bars. 14 Draw thee water for the siege, strengthen thy fortresses; go into the clay, and tread the mortar, lay hold of the brickmould. 15 There shall the fire devour thee; the sword shall cut thee off, it shall devour thee like the canker-worm; make thyself many as the canker-worm, make thyself many as the locusts. 16 Thou hast multiplied thy merchants above the stars of heaven; the canker-worm spreadeth itself, and flieth away. 17 Thy crowned are as the locusts, and thy marshals as the swarms of grasshoppers, which camp in the walls in the cold day, but when the sun ariseth they flee away, and their place is not known where they are. 18 Thy shepherds slumber, O king of Assyria, thy worthies are at rest; thy people are scattered upon the mountains, and there is none to gather them. 19 There is no assuaging of thy hurt, thy wound is grievous; all that hear the report of thee clap the hands over thee; for upon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually? {P}

Habakkuk Chapter 1

1 The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see. 2 How long, O JEHOVAH, shall I cry, and Thou wilt not hear? I cry out unto Thee of violence, and Thou wilt not save. 3 Why dost Thou show me iniquity, and beholdest mischief? And why are spoiling and violence before me? so that there is strife, and contention ariseth. 4 Therefore the law is slacked, and right doth never go forth; for the wicked doth beset the righteous; therefore right goeth forth perverted. 5 Look ye among the nations, and behold, and wonder marvellously; for, behold, a work shall be wrought in your days, which ye will not believe though it be told you. 6 For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and impetuous nation, that march through the breadth of the earth, to possess dwelling-places that are not theirs. 7 They are terrible and dreadful; their law and their majesty proceed from themselves. 8 Their horses also are swifter than leopards, and are more fierce than the wolves of the desert; and their horsemen spread themselves; yea, their horsemen come from far, they fly as a vulture that hasteth to devour. 9 They come all of them for violence; their faces are set eagerly as the east wind; and they gather captives as the sand. 10 And they scoff at kings, and princes are a derision unto them; they deride every stronghold, for they heap up earth, and take it. 11 Then their spirit doth pass over and transgress, and they become guilty: even they who impute their might unto their god. 12 Art not Thou from everlasting, O JEHOVAH my God, my Holy One? we shall not die. O JEHOVAH, Thou hast ordained them for judgment, and Thou, O Rock, hast established them for correction. 13 Thou that art of eyes too pure to behold evil, and that canst not look on mischief, wherefore lookest Thou, when they deal treacherously, and holdest Thy peace, when the wicked swalloweth up the man that is more righteous than he; 14 And makest men as the fishes of the sea, as the creeping things, that have no ruler over them? 15 They take up all of them with the angle, they catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag; therefore they rejoice and exult. 16 Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and offer unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their food plenteous. 17 Shall they therefore empty their net, and not spare to slay the nations continually? {S}

Habakkuk Chapter 2

1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will look out to see what He will speak by me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. 2 And JEHOVAH answered me, and said:

‘Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that a man may read it swiftly. 3 For the vision is yet for the appointed time, and it declareth of the end, and doth not lie; though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not delay.’

4 Behold, his soul is puffed up, it is not upright in him; but the righteous shall live by his faith. {S} 5 Yea, moreover, wine is a treacherous dealer; the haughty man abideth not; he who enlargeth his desire as the nether-world, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all peoples. 6 Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting riddle against him, and say:

‘Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his! how long? and that ladeth himself with many pledges!’

7 Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall exact interest of thee, and awake that shall violently shake thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them? 8 Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the peoples shall spoil thee; because of men’s blood, and for the violence done to the land, to the city and to all that dwell therein. {P}

9 Woe to him that gaineth evil gains for his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil! 10 Thou hast devised shame to thy house, by cutting off many peoples, and hast forfeited thy life. 11 For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it. {P}

12 Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and establisheth a city by iniquity! 13 Behold, is it not of JEHOVAH of hosts that the peoples labour for the fire, and the nations weary themselves for vanity? 14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of JEHOVAH, as the waters cover the sea. {P}

15 Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy venom thereto, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness! 16 Thou art filled with shame instead of glory, drink thou also, and be uncovered; the cup of JEHOVAH’S right hand shall be turned unto thee, and filthiness shall be upon thy glory. 17 For the violence done to Lebanon shall cover thee, and the destruction of the beasts, which made them afraid; because of men’s blood, and for the violence done to the land, to the city and to all that dwell therein. 18 What profiteth the graven image, that the maker thereof hath graven it, even the molten image, and the teacher of lies; that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols? {S} 19 Woe unto him that saith to the wood:

‘Awake’,

to the dumb stone:

‘Arise!’

Can this teach? Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it. 20 But JEHOVAH is in His holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before Him. {S}

Nehemiah Chapter 5

1 Then there arose a great cry of the people and of their wives against their brethren the Jews. 2 For there were that said:

‘We, our sons and our daughters, are many; let us get for them corn, that we may eat and live.’

3 Some also there were that said:

‘We are mortgaging our fields, and our vineyards, and our houses; let us get corn, because of the dearth.’

4 There were also that said:

‘We have borrowed money for the king’s tribute upon our fields and our vineyards. 5 Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children; and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought into bondage already; neither is it in our power to help it; for other men have our fields and our vineyards.’

6 And I was very angry when I heard their cry and these words. 7 Then I consulted with myself, and contended with the nobles and the rulers, and said unto them:

‘Ye lend upon pledge, every one to his brother.’

And I held a great assembly against them. 8 And I said unto them:

‘We after our ability have redeemed our brethren the Jews, that sold themselves unto the heathen; and would ye nevertheless sell your brethren, and should they sell themselves unto us?’

Then held they their peace, and found never a word. {S} 9 Also I said:

‘The thing that ye do is not good; ought ye not to walk in the fear of our God, because of the reproach of the heathen our enemies? 10 And I likewise, my brethren and my servants, have lent them money and corn. I pray you, let us leave off this exaction. 11 Restore, I pray you, to them, even this day, their fields, their vineyards, their oliveyards, and their houses, also the hundred pieces of silver, and the corn, the wine, and the oil, that ye exact of them.’

12 Then said they:

‘We will restore them, and will require nothing of them; so will we do, even as thou sayest.’

Then I called the priests, and took an oath of them, that they should do according to this promise. 13 Also I shook out my lap, and said:

‘So God shake out every man from his house, and from his labour, that performeth not this promise; even thus be he shaken out, and emptied.’

And all the congregation said:

‘Amen’,

and praised JEHOVAH. And the people did according to this promise. 14 Moreover from the time that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, from the twentieth year even unto the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that is, twelve years, I and my brethren have not eaten the bread of the governor. 15 But the former governors that were before me laid burdens upon the people, and took of them for bread and wine above forty shekels of silver; yea, even their servants lorded over the people; but so did not I, because of the fear of God. 16 Yea, also I set hand to the work of this wall, neither bought we any land; and all my servants were gathered thither unto the work. 17 Moreover there were at my table of the Jews and the rulers a hundred and fifty men, beside those that came unto us from among the nations that were round about us. 18 Now that which was prepared for one day was one ox and six choice sheep, also fowls were prepared for me; and once in ten days store of all sorts of wine; yet for all this I demanded not the bread of the governor, because the service was heavy upon this people. 19 Remember unto me, O my God, for good, all that I have done for this people. {P}
