The April 1 Bible

Part I Leviticus

18,6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness. I am the LORD. {S}

18,7 The nakedness of thy father, and the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. {S}

18,8 The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father’s nakedness. {S}

18,9 The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or the daughter of thy mother, whether born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover. {S}

18,10 The nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or of thy daughter’s daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover; for theirs is thine own nakedness. {S}

18,11 The nakedness of thy father’s wife’s daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. {S}

18,12 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s sister: she is thy father’s near kinswoman. {S}

18,13 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister; for she is thy mother’s near kinswoman. {S}

18,14 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt. {S}

18,15 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter-in-law: she is thy son’ wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. {S}

18,16 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother’s wife:

it is thy brother’s nakedness. {S}

18,17 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter; thou shalt not take her son’s daughter, or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness:

they are near kinswomen; it is lewdness.

18,18 And thou shalt not take a woman to her sister, to be a rival to her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her lifetime.

18,19 And thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is impure by her uncleanness.

18,20 And thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour’s wife, to defile thyself with her.

18,21 And thou shalt not give any of thy seed to set them apart to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God:

I am the LORD.

Part II Samuel

2 7,17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David. {P}

2 7,18 Then David the king went in, and sat before the LORD; and he said:

‘Who am I, O Lord GOD, and what is my house, that Thou hast brought me thus far?

2 7,19 And this was yet a small thing in Thine eyes, O Lord GOD; but Thou hast spoken also of Thy servant’s house for a great while to come; and this too after the manner of great men, O Lord GOD.

2 7,20 And what can David say more unto Thee? for Thou knowest Thy servant, O Lord GOD.

2 7,21 For Thy word’s sake, and according to Thine own heart, hast Thou wrought all this greatness, to make Thy servant know it.

2 7,22 Therefore Thou art great, O LORD God; for there is none like Thee, neither is there any God beside Thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

2 7,23 And who is like Thy people, like Israel, a nation one in the earth, whom God went to redeem unto Himself for a people, and to make Him a name, and to do for Thy land great things and tremendous, even for you, [in driving out] from before Thy people, whom Thou didst redeem to Thee out of Egypt, the nations and their gods?

2 7,24 And Thou didst establish to Thyself Thy people Israel to be a people unto Thee for ever; and Thou, LORD, becamest their God. {S}

2 7,25 And now, O LORD God, the word that Thou hast spoken concerning Thy servant, and concerning his house, confirm Thou it for ever, and do as Thou hast spoken.

2 7,26 And let Thy name be magnified for ever, that it may be said:

The LORD of hosts is God over Israel; and the house of Thy servant David shall be established before Thee.

2 7,27 For Thou, O LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, hast revealed to Thy servant, saying:

I will build thee a house; therefore hath Thy servant taken heart to pray this prayer unto Thee.

2 7,28 And now, O Lord GOD, Thou alone art God, and Thy words are truth, and Thou hast promised this good thing unto Thy servant;

2 7,29 now therefore let it please Thee to bless the house of Thy servant, that it may continue for ever before Thee; for Thou, O Lord GOD, hast spoken it; and through Thy blessing let the house of Thy servant be blessed for ever.’ {P}

2 8,1 And after this it came to pass, that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them; and David took Metheg-ammah out of the hand of the Philistines.

2 8,2 And he smote Moab, and measured them with the line, making them to lie down on the ground; and he measured two lines to put to death, and one full line to keep alive. And the Moabites became servants to David, and brought presents.

2 8,3 David smote also Hadadezer the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, as he went to establish his dominion at the river Euphrates.

2 8,4 And David took from him a thousand and seven hundred horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen; and David houghed all the chariot horses, but reserved of them for a hundred chariots.

2 8,5 And when the Arameans of Damascus came to succour Hadadezer king of Zobah, David smote of the Arameans two and twenty thousand men.

2 8,6 Then David put garrisons in Aram of Damascus; and the Arameans became servants to David, and brought presents. And the LORD gave victory to David whithersoever he went.

2 8,7 And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer, and brought them to Jerusalem.

2 8,8 And from Betah and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, king David took exceeding much brass. {S}

2 8,9 And when Toi king of Hamath heard that David had smitten all the host of Hadadezer,

2 8,10 then Toi sent Joram his son unto king David, to salute him, and to bless him–

because he had fought against Hadadezer and smitten him; for Hadadezer had wars with Toi–

and he brought with him vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and vessels of brass.

2 8,11 These also did king David dedicate unto the LORD, with the silver and gold that he dedicated of all the nations which he subdued:

2 8,12 of Aram, and of Moab, and of the sons of Ammon, and of the Philistines, and of Amalek, and of the spoil of Hadadezer, son of Rehob, king of Zobah.

Part III Psalms

104,18 The high mountains are for the wild goats; the rocks are a refuge for the conies.

104,19 Who appointedst the moon for seasons; the sun knoweth his going down.

104,20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night, wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.

104,21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their food from God.

104,22 The sun ariseth, they slink away, and couch in their dens.

104,23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

104,24 How manifold are Thy works, O LORD! In wisdom hast Thou made them all; {N}

the earth is full of Thy creatures.

104,25 Yonder sea, great and wide, {N}

therein are creeping things innumerable, living creatures, both small and great.

104,26 There go the ships; there is leviathan, whom Thou hast formed to sport therein.

104,27 All of them wait for Thee, that Thou mayest give them their food in due season.

104,28 Thou givest it unto them, they gather it; Thou openest Thy hand, they are satisfied with good.

104,29 Thou hidest Thy face, they vanish; {N}

Thou withdrawest their breath, they perish, and return to their dust.

104,30 Thou sendest forth Thy spirit, they are created; and Thou renewest the face of the earth.

104,31 May the glory of the LORD endure for ever; let the LORD rejoice in His works!

104,32 Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.

104,33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have any being.

104,34 Let my musing be sweet unto Him; as for me, I will rejoice in the LORD.

104,35 Let sinners cease out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. {N}

Bless the LORD, O my soul. {N}

Hallelujah.

105,1 O give thanks unto the LORD, call upon His name; make known His doings among the peoples.

Part IV Luke 3

16 John answered and said to them:

Behold, I baptize you with water; but after me cometh one mightier than I, the strings of whose shoes I am not worthy to untie; he will baptize you with a spirit of holiness and with fire.

17 He holdeth his winnowing shovel in his hand, and he will make clean his threshing floor; and the wheat he gathereth into his garners, and the chaff he will burn with fire not extinguished.

18 And many other things also, he taught and proclaimed to the people.

19 But Herod the Tetrarch, because he was reproved by John, on account of Herodias the wife of his brother Philip, and on account of all the evil things he had done,

20 added this also to them all, that he shut up John in prison.

21 And it occurred, when all the people were baptized, that Jesus also was baptized. And as he prayed, the heavens were opened;

22 and a spirit of holiness descended upon him, in the likeness of a dove: and there was a voice from heaven, which said:

Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I have delight.
