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.

23 And Jesus was about thirty years old. And he was accounted the son of Joseph, the son of Heli,

24 the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Janna, the son of Joseph,

25 the son of Mattathias, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum, the son of Esli, the son of Naggai,

26 the son of Maath, the son of Mattathias, the son of Shimei, the son of Joseph, the son of Judah,

27 the son of Joanna, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zorubbabel, the son of Salathiel, the son of Neri,

28 the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elmodam, the son of Er,

29 the son of Joses, the son of Eliezer, the son of Joram, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi,

30 the son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonam, the son of Eliakim,

31 the son of Melcah, the son of Mainan, the son of Mattatha, the son of Nathan, the son of David,

32 the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Boaz, the son of Salmon, the son of Nahshon

33 the son of Amminadab, the son of Ram, the son of Hezron, the son of Pharez, the son of Judah

34 the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor,

35 the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Salah,

36 the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech,

4/1/2016 Proverbs

1,1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;

1,2 To know wisdom and instruction; to comprehend the words of understanding;

1,3 To receive the discipline of wisdom, justice, and right, and equity;

1,4 To give prudence to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion;

1,5 That the wise man may hear, and increase in learning, and the man of understanding may attain unto wise counsels;

1,6 To understand a proverb, and a figure; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

1,7 The fear* of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; but the foolish despise wisdom and discipline. {P}

1,8 Hear, my son, the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the teaching of thy mother;

1,9 For they shall be a chaplet of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.

1,10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

1,11 If they say:
‘Come with us, {N}
let us lie in wait for blood, let us lurk for the innocent without cause;

1,12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave, and whole, as those that go down into the pit;

1,13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil;

1,14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse’–

1,15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them, restrain thy foot from their path;

1,16 For their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood.

1,17 For in vain the net is spread in the eyes of any bird;

1,18 And these lie in wait for their own blood, they lurk for their own lives.

1,19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; it taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

1,20 Wisdom crieth aloud in the streets, she uttereth her voice in the broad places;

1,21 She calleth at the head of the noisy streets, at the entrances of the gates, in the city, she uttereth her words:

1,22 ‘How long, ye thoughtless, will ye love thoughtlessness? {N}
And how long will scorners delight them in scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

1,23 Turn you at my reproof; behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

1,24 Because I have called, and ye refused, I have stretched out my hand, and no man attended,

1,25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof;

1,26 I also, in your calamity, will laugh, I will mock when your dread cometh;

1,27 When your dread cometh as a storm, and your calamity cometh on as a whirlwind; {N}
when trouble and distress come upon you.

1,28 Then will they call me, but I will not answer, they will seek me earnestly, but they shall not find me.

1,29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD;

1,30 They would none of my counsel, they despised all my reproof.

1,31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

1,32 For the waywardness of the thoughtless shall slay them, and the confidence of fools shall destroy them.

1,33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell securely, and shall be quiet without fear of evil.’ {P}

4/2/2016

2,1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and lay up my commandments** with thee;

2,2 So that thou make thine ear attend unto wisdom, and thy heart incline to discernment;

2,3 Yea, if thou call for understanding, and lift up thy voice for discernment;

2,4 If thou seek her as silver, and search for her as for hid treasures;

2,5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

2,6 For the LORD giveth wisdom, out of His mouth cometh knowledge and discernment;

2,7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the upright, He is a shield to them that walk in integrity;

2,8 That He may guard the paths of justice, and preserve the way of His godly ones.

2,9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness and justice, and equity, yea, every good path.

2,10 For wisdom shall enter into thy heart, and knowledge shall be pleasant unto thy soul;

2,11 Discretion shall watch over thee, discernment shall guard thee;

2,12 To deliver thee from the way of evil, from the men that speak froward things;

2,13 Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

2,14 Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of evil;

2,15 Who are crooked in their ways, and perverse in their paths;

2,16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the alien woman that maketh smooth her words;

2,17 That forsaketh the lord of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

2,18 For her house sinketh down unto death, and her paths unto the shades;

2,19 None that go unto her return, neither do they attain unto the paths of life;

2,20 That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

2,21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the whole-hearted shall remain in it.

2,22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the land, and the faithless shall be plucked up out of it. {P}

* ‘fear’ – reverence, respect to the extent of reliance and trust and commitment, this is where it allstarts
** ‘commandments’ always refers to the original Teaching revealed in the book of Moses given at Sinai, not specifically the individual rules but the letter/spirit explicated in Christ JESUS.
