“We make a sure covenant” JESUSbible3/Nehemiah

N 10,1 And yet for all this we make a sure covenant*, and subscribe it; and our princes, our Levites, and our priests, set their seal unto it.

N 10,2 Now those that set their seal were:
Nehemiah the Tirshatha, the son of Hachaliah, and Zedekiah;
N 10,3 Seraiah, Azariah, Jeremiah;
N 10,4 Pashhur, Amariah, Malchijah;
N 10,5 Hattush, Shebaniah, Malluch;
N 10,6 Harim, Meremoth, Obadiah;
N 10,7 Daniel, Ginnethon, Baruch;
N 10,8 Meshullam, Abijah, Mijamin;
N 10,9 Maaziah, Bilgai, Shemaiah. These were the priests. {S}
N 10,10 And the Levites: Jeshua the son of Azaniah, Binnui of the sons of Henadad, Kadmiel;
N 10,11 and their brethren, Shebaniah, Hodiah, Kelita, Pelaiah, Hanan; N 10,12 Mica, Rehob, Hashabiah;
N 10,13 Zaccur, Sherebiah, Shebaniah;
N 10,14 Hodiah, Bani, Beninu. {S}
N 10,15 The chiefs of the people: Parosh, Pahath-moab, Elam, Zattu, Bani;
N 10,16 Bunni, Azgad, Bebai;
N 10,17 Adonijah, Bigvai, Adin;
N 10,18 Ater, Hezekiah, Azzur;
N 10,19 Hodiah, Hashum, Bezai;
N 10,20 Hariph, Anathoth, Nebai;
N 10,21 Magpiash, Meshullam, Hezir;
N 10,22 Meshezabel, Zadok, Jaddua;
N 10,23 Pelatiah, Hanan, Anaiah;
N 10,24 Hoshea, Hananiah, Hasshub;
N 10,25 Hallohesh, Pilha, Shobek;
N 10,26 Rehum, Hashabnah, Maaseiah;
N 10,27 and Ahiah, Hanan, Anan;
N 10,28 Malluch, Harim, Baanah.

N 10,29 And the rest of the people, the priests, the Levites, the porters, the singers, the Nethinim, and all they that had separated themselves from the peoples of the lands unto the law of God, their wives, their sons, and their daughters, every one that had knowledge and understanding;

N 10,30 they cleaved to their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse, and into an oath, to walk in God’s law, which was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the LORD our Lord, and His ordinances and His statutes;

N 10,31 and that we would not give our daughters unto the peoples of the land, nor take their daughters for our sons;

N 10,32 and if the peoples of the land bring ware or any victuals on the sabbath day to sell, that we would not buy of them on the sabbath, or on a holy day; and that we would forego the seventh year, and the exaction of every debt.

N 10,33 Also we made ordinances for us, to charge ourselves yearly with the third part of a shekel for the service of the house of our God;

N 10,34 for the showbread, and for the continual meal-offering, and for the continual burnt-offering, of the sabbaths, of the new moons, for the appointed seasons, and for the holy things, and for the sin-offerings to make atonement for Israel, and for all the work of the house of our God. {S}

N 10,35 And we cast lots, the priests, the Levites, and the people, for the wood-offering, to bring it into the house of our God, according to our fathers’ houses, at times appointed, year by year, to burn upon the altar of the LORD our God, as it is written in the Law;

N 10,36 and to bring the first-fruits of our land, and the first-fruits of all fruit of all manner of trees, year by year, unto the house of the LORD;

N 10,37 also the first-born of our sons, and of our cattle, as it is written in the Law, and the firstlings of our herds and of our flocks, to bring to the house of our God, unto the priests that minister in the house of our God;

N 10,38 and that we should bring the first of our dough, and our heave-offerings, and the fruit of all manner of trees, the wine and the oil, unto the priests, to the chambers of the house of our God; and the tithes of our land unto the Levites; for they, the Levites, take the tithes in all the cities of our tillage.

N 10,39 And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the Levites take tithes; and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes unto the house of our God, to the chambers, into the treasure-house.

N 10,40 For the children of Israel and the children of Levi shall bring the heave-offering of the corn, of the wine, and of the oil, unto the chambers, where are the vessels of the sanctuary, and the priests that minister, and the porters, and the singers; and we will not forsake the house of our God.

comment: v.1 By way of personal application: new covenants [promises] cannot atone for a broken covenant. ‘Israel’ represented broken faith. They had one job, and failed – that was to uphold the Covenant [vis-a-vis The Ten Commandments].

Deuteronomy Chapter 14

1 You are sons of jehovah, your God. You shall neither cut yourselves nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.
אבָּנִ֣ים אַתֶּ֔ם לַֽיהֹוָ֖ה אֱלֹֽהֵיכֶ֑ם לֹ֣א תִתְגֹּֽדְד֗וּ וְלֹֽא־תָשִׂ֧ימוּ קָרְחָ֛ה בֵּ֥ין עֵֽינֵיכֶ֖ם לָמֵֽת:

2 For you are a holy people to jehovah, your God, and jehovah has chosen you to be a treasured people for Him, out of all the peoples that are upon the earth. בכִּ֣י עַ֤ם קָדוֹשׁ֙ אַתָּ֔ה לַֽיהֹוָ֖ה אֱלֹהֶ֑יךָ וּבְךָ֞ בָּחַ֣ר יְהֹוָ֗ה לִֽהְי֥וֹת לוֹ֙ לְעַ֣ם סְגֻלָּ֔ה מִכֹּל֙ הָֽעַמִּ֔ים אֲשֶׁ֖ר עַל־פְּנֵ֥י הָֽאֲדָמָֽה:

3 You shall not eat any abomination.
גלֹ֥א תֹאכַ֖ל כָּל־תּֽוֹעֵבָֽה:

4 These are the animals that you may eat:
ox, lamb, and kid,
דזֹ֥את הַבְּהֵמָ֖ה אֲשֶׁ֣ר תֹּאכֵ֑לוּ שׁ֕וֹר שֵׂ֥ה כְשָׂבִ֖ים וְשֵׂ֥ה עִזִּֽים:

האַיָּ֥ל וּצְבִ֖י וְיַחְמ֑וּר וְאַקּ֥וֹ וְדִישֹׁ֖ן וּתְא֥וֹ וָזָֽמֶר:

6 And every animal that has a split hoof and has a hoof cloven into two hoof sections, [and] chews the cud among the animals that you may eat.
ווְכָל־בְּהֵמָ֞ה מַפְרֶ֣סֶת פַּרְסָ֗ה וְשֹׁסַ֤עַת שֶׁ֨סַע֙ שְׁתֵּ֣י פְרָס֔וֹת מַֽעֲלַ֥ת גֵּרָ֖ה בַּבְּהֵמָ֑ה אֹתָ֖הּ תֹּאכֵֽלוּ:

7 But you shall not eat of those that chew the cud, or of those that have the split hooves:
the cloven one, the camel, the hyrax, and the hare, for they chew the cud, but do not have split hooves; they are unclean for you.
זאַ֣ךְ אֶת־זֶ֞ה לֹ֤א תֹֽאכְלוּ֙ מִמַּֽעֲלֵ֣י הַגֵּרָ֔ה וּמִמַּפְרִיסֵ֥י הַפַּרְסָ֖ה הַשְּׁסוּעָ֑ה אֶת־הַ֠גָּמָ֠ל וְאֶת־הָֽאַרְנֶ֨בֶת וְאֶת־הַשָּׁפָ֜ן כִּי־מַֽעֲלֵ֧ה גֵרָ֣ה הֵ֗מָּה וּפַרְסָה֙ לֹ֣א הִפְרִ֔יסוּ טְמֵאִ֥ים הֵ֖ם לָכֶֽם:

8 And the pig, because it has a split hoof, but does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. You shall neither eat of their flesh nor touch their carcass.
חוְאֶת־הַֽ֠חֲזִ֠יר כִּֽי־מַפְרִ֨יס פַּרְסָ֥ה הוּא֙ וְלֹ֣א גֵרָ֔ה טָמֵ֥א ה֖וּא לָכֶ֑ם מִבְּשָׂרָם֙ לֹ֣א תֹאכֵ֔לוּ וּבְנִבְלָתָ֖ם לֹ֥א תִגָּֽעוּ:

9 These you may eat of all that are in the waters; all that have fins and scales, you may eat.
טאֶת־זֶה֙ תֹּֽאכְל֔וּ מִכֹּ֖ל אֲשֶׁ֣ר בַּמָּ֑יִם כֹּ֧ל אֲשֶׁר־ל֛וֹ סְנַפִּ֥יר וְקַשְׂקֶ֖שֶׂת תֹּאכֵֽלוּ:

10 But whatever does not have fins and scales, you shall not eat; it is unclean for you.
יוְכֹ֨ל אֲשֶׁ֧ר אֵין־ל֛וֹ סְנַפִּ֥יר וְקַשְׂקֶ֖שֶׂת לֹ֣א תֹאכֵ֑לוּ טָמֵ֥א ה֖וּא לָכֶֽם:

11 You may eat every clean bird.
יאכָּל־צִפּ֥וֹר טְהֹרָ֖ה תֹּאכֵֽלוּ:

12 But these are those from which you shall not eat:
The eagle [or the griffin vulture], the ossifrage, the osprey;
יבוְזֶ֕ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר לֹא־תֹֽאכְל֖וּ מֵהֶ֑ם הַנֶּ֥שֶׁר וְהַפֶּ֖רֶס וְהָֽעָזְנִיָּֽה:

13 and the white vulture, and the black vulture, and the kite after its species;
יגוְהָֽרָאָה֙ וְאֶת־הָ֣אַיָּ֔ה וְהַדַּיָּ֖ה לְמִינָֽהּ:

14 And every raven after its species;
ידוְאֵ֥ת כָּל־עֹרֵ֖ב לְמִינֽוֹ:

15 And the ostrich, and the owl, and the gull, and the hawk after its species;
טווְאֵת֙ בַּ֣ת הַיַּֽעֲנָ֔ה וְאֶת־הַתַּחְמָ֖ס וְאֶת־הַשָּׁ֑חַף וְאֶת־הַנֵּ֖ץ לְמִינֵֽהוּ:

16 The falcon, and the ibis, and the bat;
טזאֶת־הַכּ֥וֹס וְאֶת־הַיַּנְשׁ֖וּף וְהַתִּנְשָֽׁמֶת:

17 And the pelican, and the magpie, and the cormorant;
יזוְהַקָּאָ֥ת וְאֶת־הָֽרָחָ֖מָה וְאֶת־הַשָּׁלָֽךְ:

18 And the stork, and the heron and its species, and the hoopoe, and the atalef.
יחוְהַ֣חֲסִידָ֔ה וְהָֽאֲנָפָ֖ה לְמִינָ֑הּ וְהַדּֽוּכִיפַ֖ת וְהָֽעֲטַלֵּֽף:

19 And every flying insect is unclean for you; they may not be eaten.
יטוְכֹל֙ שֶׁ֣רֶץ הָע֔וֹף טָמֵ֥א ה֖וּא לָכֶ֑ם לֹ֖א יֵֽאָכֵֽלוּ:

20 You may eat any clean fowl.
ככָּל־ע֥וֹף טָה֖וֹר תֹּאכֵֽלוּ:

21 You shall not eat any carcass. You may give it to the stranger who is in your cities, that he may eat it, or you may sell it to a foreigner; for you are a holy people to jehovah, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother’s milk.

Part II Jeremiah

18,8 but if that nation turn from their evil, because of which I have spoken against it, I repent of the evil that I thought to do unto it. {S}

18,9 And at one instant I may speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it;

18,10 but if it do evil in My sight, that it hearken not to My voice, then I repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit it. {S}

18,11 Now therefore do thou speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying:

Thus saith the LORD:

Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you; return ye now every one from his evil way, and amend your ways and your doings.

18,12 But they say:

There is no hope; but we will walk after our own devices, and we will do every one after the stubbornness of his evil heart.’ {P}

18,13 Therefore thus saith the LORD:

Ask ye now among the nations, who hath heard such things; the virgin of Israel hath done a very horrible thing.

18,14 Doth the snow of Lebanon fail from the rock of the field? or are the strange cold flowing waters plucked up?

18,15 For My people hath forgotten Me, they offer unto vanity; and they have been made to stumble in their ways, in the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths, in a way not cast up;

18,16 To make their land an astonishment, and a perpetual hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished, and shake his head.

18,17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will look upon their back, and not their face, in the day of their calamity. {S}

18,18 Then said they:

‘Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for instruction shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.’

18,19 Give heed to me, O LORD, and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me.

18,20 Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a pit for my soul. Remember how I stood before Thee to speak good for them, to turn away Thy wrath from them.

18,21 Therefore deliver up their children to the famine, and hurl them to the power of the sword; and let their wives be bereaved of their children, and widows; and let their men be slain of death, and their young men smitten of the sword in battle.

18,22 Let a cry be heard from their houses, when thou shalt bring a troop suddenly upon them; for they have digged a pit to take me, and hid snares for my feet.

18,23 Yet, LORD, Thou knowest all their counsel against me to slay me; forgive not their iniquity, neither blot out their sin from Thy sight; but let them be made to stumble before Thee; deal Thou with them in the time of Thine anger. {S}

19,1 Thus said the LORD:

Go, and get a potter’s earthen bottle, and take of the elders of the people, and of the elders of the priests;

19,2 and go forth unto the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is by the entry of the gate Harsith, and proclaim there the words that I shall tell thee;

19,3 and say:

Hear ye the word of the LORD, O kings of Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem; thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel:

Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, which whosoever heareth, his ears shall tingle;

19,4 because they have forsaken Me, and have estranged this place, and have offered in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah; and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;

19,5 and have built the high places of Baal, to burn their sons in the fire for burnt-offerings unto Baal; which I commanded not, nor spoke it, neither came it into My mind. {P}

19,6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that this place shall no more be called Topheth, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter;

19,7 and I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies, and by the hand of them that seek their life; and their carcasses will I give to be food for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth;

19,8 and I will make this city an astonishment, and a hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof;

19,9 and I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend, in the siege and in the straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their life, shall straiten them.

Part III Ecclesiastes

2,25 For who will eat, or who will enjoy, if not I?

2,26 For to the man that is good in His sight He giveth wisdom, and knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner He giveth the task, to gather and to heap up, that he may leave to him that is good in the sight of God. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.

3,1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: {P}

3,2 {S} A time to be born, {S} and a time to die; {N}

{S} a time to plant, {S} and a time to pluck up that which is planted; {N}

3,3 {S} A time to kill, {S} and a time to heal; {N}

{S} a time to break down, {S} and a time to build up; {N}

3,4 {S} A time to weep, {S} and a time to laugh; {N}

{S} a time to mourn, {S} and a time to dance; {N}

3,5 {S} A time to cast away stones, {S} and a time to gather stones together; {N}

{S} a time to embrace, {S} and a time to refrain from embracing; {N}

3,6 {S} A time to seek, {S} and a time to lose; {N}

{S} a time to keep, {S} and a time to cast away; {N}

3,7 {S} A time to rend, {S} and a time to sew; {N}

{S} a time to keep silence, {S} and a time to speak; {N}

3,8 {S} A time to love, {S} and a time to hate; {N}

{S} a time for war, {S} and a time for peace. {N}

3,9 {S} What profit hath he that worketh in that he laboureth?

3,10 I have seen the task which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised therewith.

3,11 He hath made every thing beautiful in its time; also He hath set the world in their heart, yet so that man cannot find out the work that God hath done from the beginning even to the end.

3,12 I know that there is nothing better for them, than to rejoice, and to get pleasure so long as they live.

3,13 But also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy pleasure for all his labour, is the gift of God.

3,14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever; nothing can be added to it, nor any thing taken from it; and God hath so made it, that men should fear before Him.

3,15 That which is hath been long ago, and that which is to be hath already been; and God seeketh that which is pursued.

3,16 And moreover I saw under the sun, in the place of justice, that wickedness was there; and in the place of righteousness, that wickedness was there.

3,17 I said in my heart:

‘The righteous and the wicked God will judge; for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.’

3,18 I said in my heart:

‘It is because of the sons of men, that God may sift them, and that they may see that they themselves are but as beasts.’

3,19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them; as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that man hath no pre-eminence above a beast; for all is vanity.

The Proclamation of John the Herald – Chapter 13

ܝܘܚܢܢ

26 Jesus answered and said:

He it is, to whom I give the bread when I have dipped it. And Jesus dipped the bread, and gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

27 And after the bread, then Satan entered into him. And Jesus said to him:

What thou doest, do quickly.

28 And no one of those reclining, knew, wherefore he said this to him.

29 For some of them supposed, because the purse was in the hands of Judas, that Jesus expressly charged him to buy something needful for the feast, or that he should give something to the poor.

30 And Judas took the bread at once, and went out of the house. And it was night when he went out.

31 And Jesus said:

Now is the Son of man glorified; and God is glorified in him.

32 And if God is glorified in him, God will glorify him in himself; and will glorify him speedily.

33 My children, a little longer I am with you; and ye will seek for me; and, as I said to the Jews, Whither I go ye cannot come, so I now say to you.

34 A new commandment I give to you, that ye be affectionate to each other. As I have loved you, do ye also love one another.

35 By this will every one know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love for each other.

The Aug 31 Bible: Part IV John 13, “As I have loved you,”

34 A new commandment I give to you, that ye be affectionate to each other. As I have loved you, do ye also love one another.

35 By this will every one know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love for each other.

“Thou camest down also upon mount Sinai,” JESUSbible3/Nehemiah

N 9,1 Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackcloth, and earth upon them.

N 9,2 And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all foreigners, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.

N 9,3 And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the Law of the LORD their God a fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and prostrated themselves before the LORD their God. {P}

N 9,4 Then stood up upon the platform of the Levites, Jeshua, and Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Chenani, and cried with a loud voice unto the LORD their God.

N 9,5 Then the Levites, Jeshua, and Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah, said:
‘Stand up and bless the LORD your God from everlasting to everlasting; and let them say:
Blessed be Thy glorious Name, that is exalted above all blessing and praise.

N 9,6 Thou art the LORD, even Thou alone; Thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all things that are thereon, the seas and all that is in them, and Thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth Thee.

N 9,7 Thou art the LORD the God, who didst choose Abram, and broughtest him forth out of Ur of the Chaldees, and gavest him the name of Abraham;

N 9,8 and foundest his heart faithful before Thee, and madest a covenant with him to give the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, and the Perizzite, and the Jebusite, and the Girgashite, even to give it unto his seed, and hast performed Thy words; for Thou art righteous;

N 9,9 And Thou sawest the affliction of our fathers in Egypt, and heardest their cry by the Red Sea;

N 9,10 and didst show signs and wonders upon Pharaoh, and on all his servants, and on all the people of his land; for Thou knewest that they dealt proudly against them; and didst get Thee a name, as it is this day.

N 9,11 And Thou didst divide the sea before them, so that they went through the midst of the sea on the dry land; and their pursuers Thou didst cast into the depths, as a stone into the mighty waters.

N 9,12 Moreover in a pillar of cloud Thou didst lead them by day; and in a pillar of fire by night, to give them light in the way wherein they should go.

N 9,13 Thou camest down* also upon mount Sinai, and spokest with them from heaven, and gavest them right ordinances and laws of truth, good statutes and commandments;

N 9,14 and madest known unto them Thy holy sabbath, and didst command them commandments, and statutes, and a law, by the hand of Moses Thy servant;

N 9,15 and gavest them bread from heaven for their hunger, and broughtest forth water for them out of the rock for their thirst, and didst command them that they should go in to possess the land which Thou hadst lifted up Thy hand to give them.

N 9,16 But they and our fathers dealt proudly, and hardened their neck, and hearkened not to Thy commandments,

N 9,17 and refused to hearken, neither were mindful of Thy wonders that Thou didst among them; but hardened their neck, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage; but Thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy, and forsookest them not.

N 9,18 Yea, when they had made them a molten calf, and said:
‘This is thy God that brought thee up out of Egypt, and had wrought great provocations;

N 9,19 yet Thou in Thy manifold mercies forsookest them not in the wilderness; the pillar of cloud departed not from over them by day, to lead them in the way; neither the pillar of fire by night, to show them light, and the way wherein they should go.

N 9,20 Thou gavest also Thy good spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not Thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst.

N 9,21 Yea, forty years didst Thou sustain them in the wilderness, and they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not.

N 9,22 Moreover Thou gavest them kingdoms and peoples, which Thou didst allot quarter by quarter; so they possessed the land of Sihon, even the land of the king of Heshbon, and the land of Og king of Bashan.

N 9,23 Their children also didst Thou multiply as the stars of heaven, and didst bring them into the land, concerning which Thou didst say to their fathers, that they should go in to possess it.

N 9,24 So the children went in and possessed the land, and Thou didst subdue before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, and gavest them into their hands, with their kings, and the peoples of the land, that they might do with them as they would.

N 9,25 And they took fortified cities, and a fat land, and possessed houses full of all good things, cisterns hewn out, vineyards, and oliveyards, and fruit-trees in abundance; so they did eat, and were filled, and became fat, and luxuriated in Thy great goodness.

N 9,26 Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against Thee, and cast Thy law behind their back, and slew Thy prophets that did forewarn them to turn them back unto Thee, and they wrought great provocations.

N 9,27 Therefore Thou didst deliver them into the hand of their adversaries, who distressed them; and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto Thee, Thou heardest from heaven; and according to Thy manifold mercies Thou gavest them saviours who might save them out of the hand of their adversaries.

N 9,28 But after they had rest, they did evil again before Thee; therefore didst Thou leave them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them; yet when they returned, and cried unto Thee, many times didst Thou hear from heaven, and deliver them according to Thy mercies;

N 9,29 and didst forewarn them, that Thou mightest bring them back unto Thy law; yet they dealt proudly, and hearkened not unto Thy commandments, but sinned against Thine ordinances, which if a man do, he shall live by them, and presented a stubborn shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear.

N 9,30 Yet many years didst Thou extend mercy unto them, and didst forewarn them by Thy spirit through Thy prophets; yet would they not give ear; therefore gavest Thou them into the hand of the peoples of the lands.

N 9,31 Nevertheless in Thy manifold mercies Thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for Thou art a gracious and merciful God.

N 9,32 Now therefore, our God, the great, the mighty, and the awful God, who keepest covenant and mercy, let not all the travail seem little before Thee, that hath come upon us, on our kings, on our princes, and on our priests, and on our prophets, and on our fathers, and on all Thy people, since the time of the kings of Assyria unto this day.

N 9,33 Howbeit Thou art just in all that is come upon us; for Thou hast dealt truly, but we have done wickedly;

N 9,34 neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept Thy law, nor hearkened unto Thy commandments and Thy testimonies, wherewith Thou didst testify against them.

N 9,35 For they have not served Thee in their kingdom, and in Thy great goodness that Thou gavest them, and in the large and fat land which Thou gavest before them, neither turned they from their wicked works.

N 9,36 Behold, we are servants this day, and as for the land that Thou gavest unto our fathers to eat the fruit thereof and the good thereof, behold, we are servants in it.

N 9,37 And it yieldeth much increase unto the kings whom Thou hast set over us because of our sins; also they have power over our bodies, and over our cattle, at their pleasure, and we are in great distress.’ {P}

Merry Christmas – #whenmatters

this weekend is JESUS’ birthday – at the time He was born, no one but Mary, Joseph, the Magi, and Herod the Great cared who He was, and the Roman calendar was not very accurate and it didn’t matter when He was born – to anybody else.

But now we know the actual date, thanks to computer calculations and the records of the Magi who were Astronomers from Persia. But the traditional date used by the Roman Catholic Church and the date that the Eastern Church uses will probably not change.

it’s just like prayer … you will always know where He is, and when. Amen.

“for my burial.” – #WhatWouldJesusTeach

b"h

While we focus on serving the Kingdom of GOD in Christ, the most relevant part, is the message.

He died, was buried, and in power rose again. His literal death is the key. Because He literally arose, in power.

Text: Matthew 26,6 And when Jesus was at Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,

7 there came to him a woman having a vase of aromatic ointment very precious, and she poured it on the head of Jesus as he was reclining.

8 And when his disciples saw [it] they were displeased, and said:
Why is this waste ?

9 For this [ointment] might have been sold for much, and have been given to the poor.

10 But Jesus knew [their dissatisfaction], and said to them:
Why trouble ye the woman ? She hath performed a good deed towards me.

11 For the poor ye have at all times with you; but I am not with you always

12 And this her act, pouring the ointment on my body, she hath done as it were for my burial.

13 Verily I say to you, That wherever this my gospel shall be proclaimed, in all the world, this thing that she hath done shall be told for a memorial of her.

Eikev iii. “Remember do not forget, how you angered jehovah”

Israel angered GOD. He wanted to destroy them. Moses interceded 40 days and 40 nights. So GOD gave Moses the Ten Commandments to cover their sin.

3rd Portion: (Deuteronomy 9:4-29)
Deuteronomy Chapter 9

4 Do not say to yourself, when jehovah, your God, has repelled them from before you, saying,
"Because of my righteousness, jehovah has brought me to possess this land,"
and [that] because of the wickedness of these nations, jehovah drives them out from before you.
דאַל־תֹּאמַ֣ר בִּלְבָֽבְךָ֗ בַּֽהֲדֹ֣ף יְהֹוָה֩ אֱלֹהֶ֨יךָ אֹתָ֥ם | מִלְּפָנֶ֘יךָ֘ לֵאמֹר֒ בְּצִדְקָתִי֙ הֱבִיאַ֣נִי יְהֹוָ֔ה לָרֶ֖שֶׁת אֶת־הָאָ֣רֶץ הַזֹּ֑את וּבְרִשְׁעַת֙ הַגּוֹיִ֣ם הָאֵ֔לֶּה יְהֹוָ֖ה מֽוֹרִישָׁ֥ם מִפָּנֶֽיךָ:

5 Not because of your righteousness or because of the honesty of your heart, do you come to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations, jehovah your God drives them out from before you, and in order to establish the matter that jehovah swore to your forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
הלֹ֣א בְצִדְקָֽתְךָ֗ וּבְי֨שֶׁר֙ לְבָ֣בְךָ֔ אַתָּ֥ה בָ֖א לָרֶ֣שֶׁת אֶת־אַרְצָ֑ם כִּ֞י בְּרִשְׁעַ֣ת | הַגּוֹיִ֣ם הָאֵ֗לֶּה יְהֹוָ֤ה אֱלֹהֶ֨יךָ֙ מֽוֹרִישָׁ֣ם מִפָּנֶ֔יךָ וּלְמַ֜עַן הָקִ֣ים אֶת־הַדָּבָ֗ר אֲשֶׁ֨ר נִשְׁבַּ֤ע יְהֹוָה֙ לַֽאֲבֹתֶ֔יךָ לְאַבְרָהָ֥ם לְיִצְחָ֖ק וּלְיַֽעֲקֹֽב:

6 You shall know that, not because of your righteousness, jehovah, your God, gives you this land to possess it; for you are a stiffnecked people.
ווְיָֽדַעְתָּ֗ כִּ֠י לֹ֤א בְצִדְקָֽתְךָ֙ יְהֹוָ֣ה אֱ֠לֹהֶ֠יךָ נֹתֵ֨ן לְךָ֜ אֶת־הָאָ֧רֶץ הַטּוֹבָ֛ה הַזֹּ֖את לְרִשְׁתָּ֑הּ כִּ֥י עַם־קְשֵׁה־עֹ֖רֶף אָֽתָּה:

7 Remember do not forget, how you angered jehovah, your God, in the desert; from the day that you went out of the land of Egypt, until you came to this place, you have been rebelling against jehovah.
זזְכֹר֙ אַל־תִּשְׁכַּ֔ח אֵ֧ת אֲשֶׁר־הִקְצַ֛פְתָּ אֶת־יְהֹוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֶ֖יךָ בַּמִּדְבָּ֑ר לְמִן־הַיּ֞וֹם אֲשֶׁר־יָצָ֣אתָ | מֵאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרַ֗יִם עַד־בֹּֽאֲכֶם֙ עַד־הַמָּק֣וֹם הַזֶּ֔ה מַמְרִ֥ים הֱיִיתֶ֖ם עִם־יְהֹוָֽה:

8 At Horeb, you angered jehovah, and jehovah was incensed with you to destroy you.
חוּבְחֹרֵ֥ב הִקְצַפְתֶּ֖ם אֶת־יְהֹוָ֑ה וַיִּתְאַנַּ֧ף יְהֹוָ֛ה בָּכֶ֖ם לְהַשְׁמִ֥יד אֶתְכֶֽם:

9 When I ascended the mountain to receive the stone tablets, the tablets of the covenant which jehovah made with you, I remained on the mountain forty days and forty nights; I neither ate bread nor drank water;
טבַּֽעֲלֹתִ֣י הָהָ֗רָה לָקַ֜חַת לוּחֹ֤ת הָֽאֲבָנִים֙ לוּחֹ֣ת הַבְּרִ֔ית אֲשֶׁר־כָּרַ֥ת יְהֹוָ֖ה עִמָּכֶ֑ם וָֽאֵשֵׁ֣ב בָּהָ֗ר אַרְבָּעִ֥ים יוֹם֙ וְאַרְבָּעִ֣ים לַ֔יְלָה לֶ֚חֶם לֹ֣א אָכַ֔לְתִּי וּמַ֖יִם לֹ֥א שָׁתִֽיתִי:

10 and jehovah gave me two stone tablets, inscribed by the finger of God, and on them was [inscribed] according to all the words that jehovah spoke with you on the mountain from the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly.
יוַיִּתֵּ֨ן יְהֹוָ֜ה אֵלַ֗י אֶת־שְׁנֵי֙ לוּחֹ֣ת הָֽאֲבָנִ֔ים כְּתֻבִ֖ים בְּאֶצְבַּ֣ע אֱלֹהִ֑ים וַֽעֲלֵיהֶ֗ם כְּכָל־הַדְּבָרִ֡ים אֲשֶׁ֣ר דִּבֶּר֩ יְהֹוָ֨ה עִמָּכֶ֥ם בָּהָ֛ר מִתּ֥וֹךְ הָאֵ֖שׁ בְּי֥וֹם הַקָּהָֽל:

11 And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights, that jehovah gave me two stone tablets, the tablets of the covenant.
יאוַיְהִ֗י מִקֵּץ֙ אַרְבָּעִ֣ים י֔וֹם וְאַרְבָּעִ֖ים לָ֑יְלָה נָתַ֨ן יְהֹוָ֜ה אֵלַ֗י אֶת־שְׁנֵ֛י לֻחֹ֥ת הָֽאֲבָנִ֖ים לֻח֥וֹת הַבְּרִֽית:

12 And jehovah said to me,
"Arise, descend quickly from here, for your people whom you have brought out of Egypt have become corrupt; they have quickly deviated from the way which I commanded them; they have made for themselves a molten image."
יבוַיֹּ֨אמֶר יְהֹוָ֜ה אֵלַ֗י ק֣וּם רֵ֤ד מַהֵר֙ מִזֶּ֔ה כִּ֚י שִׁחֵ֣ת עַמְּךָ֔ אֲשֶׁ֥ר הוֹצֵ֖אתָ מִמִּצְרָ֑יִם סָ֣רוּ מַהֵ֗ר מִן־הַדֶּ֨רֶךְ֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר צִוִּיתִ֔ם עָשׂ֥וּ לָהֶ֖ם מַסֵּכָֽה:

13 And jehovah spoke to me [further], saying,
"I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people.
יגוַיֹּ֥אמֶר יְהֹוָ֖ה אֵלַ֣י לֵאמֹ֑ר רָאִ֨יתִי֙ אֶת־הָעָ֣ם הַזֶּ֔ה וְהִנֵּ֥ה עַם־קְשֵׁה־עֹ֖רֶף הֽוּא:

14 Leave Me alone, and I will destroy them and obliterate their name from beneath the heavens, and I will make you into a nation mightier and more numerous than they."
ידהֶ֤רֶף מִמֶּ֨נִּי֙ וְאַשְׁמִידֵ֔ם וְאֶמְחֶ֣ה אֶת־שְׁמָ֔ם מִתַּ֖חַת הַשָּׁמָ֑יִם וְאֶֽעֱשֶׂה֙ אוֹתְךָ֔ לְגֽוֹי־עָצ֥וּם וָרָ֖ב מִמֶּֽנּוּ:

15 So I turned and came down from the mountain, and the mountain was burning with fire, and the two tablets of the covenant were on my two hands.
טווָאֵ֗פֶן וָֽאֵרֵד֙ מִן־הָהָ֔ר וְהָהָ֖ר בֹּעֵ֣ר בָּאֵ֑שׁ וּשְׁנֵי֙ לוּחֹ֣ת הַבְּרִ֔ית עַ֖ל שְׁתֵּ֥י יָדָֽי:

16 And I saw, and behold, you had sinned against jehovah, your God; you had made yourselves a molten calf; you had deviated quickly from the way which jehovah had commanded you.
טזוָאֵ֗רֶא וְהִנֵּ֤ה חֲטָאתֶם֙ לַֽיהֹוָ֣ה אֱלֹֽהֵיכֶ֔ם עֲשִׂיתֶ֣ם לָכֶ֔ם עֵ֖גֶל מַסֵּכָ֑ה סַרְתֶּ֣ם מַהֵ֔ר מִן־הַדֶּ֕רֶךְ אֲשֶׁר־צִוָּ֥ה יְהֹוָ֖ה אֶתְכֶֽם:

17 So I grasped the two tablets, cast them out of my two hands, and shattered them before your eyes.
יזוָֽאֶתְפֹּשׂ֙ בִּשְׁנֵ֣י הַלֻּחֹ֔ת וָֽאַשְׁלִכֵ֔ם מֵעַ֖ל שְׁתֵּ֣י יָדָ֑י וָֽאֲשַׁבְּרֵ֖ם לְעֵֽינֵיכֶֽם:

18 And I fell down before jehovah as before, forty days and forty nights; I neither ate bread nor drank water, because of all your sins you had committed, by doing evil in the eyes of jehovah to anger Him.
יחוָֽאֶתְנַפַּל֩ לִפְנֵ֨י יְהֹוָ֜ה כָּרִֽאשֹׁנָ֗ה אַרְבָּעִ֥ים יוֹם֙ וְאַרְבָּעִ֣ים לַ֔יְלָה לֶ֚חֶם לֹ֣א אָכַ֔לְתִּי וּמַ֖יִם לֹ֣א שָׁתִ֑יתִי עַ֤ל כָּל־חַטַּאתְכֶם֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר חֲטָאתֶ֔ם לַֽעֲשׂ֥וֹת הָרַ֛ע בְּעֵינֵ֥י יְהֹוָ֖ה לְהַכְעִיסֽוֹ:

19 For I was frightened of the wrath and the fury that jehovah was angry with you to destroy you, and jehovah hearkened to me also at that time.
יטכִּ֣י יָגֹ֗רְתִּי מִפְּנֵ֤י הָאַף֙ וְהַ֣חֵמָ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֨ר קָצַ֧ף יְהֹוָ֛ה עֲלֵיכֶ֖ם לְהַשְׁמִ֣יד אֶתְכֶ֑ם וַיִּשְׁמַ֤ע יְהֹוָה֙ אֵלַ֔י גַּ֖ם בַּפַּ֥עַם הַהִֽוא:

20 And with Aaron, jehovah was very furious, to destroy him; so I prayed also for Aaron at that time.
כוּבְאַֽהֲרֹ֗ן הִתְאַנַּ֧ף יְהֹוָ֛ה מְאֹ֖ד לְהַשְׁמִיד֑וֹ וָֽאֶתְפַּלֵּ֛ל גַּם־בְּעַ֥ד אַֽהֲרֹ֖ן בָּעֵ֥ת הַהִֽוא:

21 And I took your sin the calf, which you had made, and I burned it with fire, and I crushed it, grinding it well, until it was fine dust, and I cast its dust into the brook that descends from the mountain.
כאוְאֶת־חַטַּאתְכֶ֞ם אֲשֶׁר־עֲשִׂיתֶ֣ם אֶת־הָעֵ֗גֶל לָקַ֘חְתִּי֘ וָֽאֶשְׂרֹ֣ף אֹת֣וֹ | בָּאֵשׁ֒ וָֽאֶכֹּ֨ת אֹת֤וֹ טָחוֹן֙ הֵיטֵ֔ב עַ֥ד אֲשֶׁר־דַּ֖ק לְעָפָ֑ר וָֽאַשְׁלִךְ֙ אֶת־עֲפָר֔וֹ אֶל־הַנַּ֖חַל הַיֹּרֵ֥ד מִן־הָהָֽר:

22 And at Tav’erah, and at Massah, and at Kivroth Hata’avah, you provoked jehovah to anger.
כבוּבְתַבְעֵרָה֙ וּבְמַסָּ֔ה וּבְקִבְרֹ֖ת הַתַּֽאֲוָ֑ה מַקְצִפִ֥ים הֱיִיתֶ֖ם אֶת־יְהֹוָֽה:

23 And when jehovah sent you from Kadesh Barnea, saying,
"Go up and possess the land I have given you,"
you defied the word of jehovah your God, and you did not believe Him, nor did you obey Him.
כגוּבִשְׁלֹ֨חַ יְהֹוָ֜ה אֶתְכֶ֗ם מִקָּדֵ֤שׁ בַּרְנֵ֨עַ֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר עֲלוּ֙ וּרְשׁ֣וּ אֶת־הָאָ֔רֶץ אֲשֶׁ֥ר נָתַ֖תִּי לָכֶ֑ם וַתַּמְר֗וּ אֶת־פִּ֤י יְהֹוָה֙ אֱלֹ֣הֵיכֶ֔ם וְלֹ֤א הֶֽאֱמַנְתֶּם֙ ל֔וֹ וְלֹ֥א שְׁמַעְתֶּ֖ם בְּקֹלֽוֹ:

24 You have been rebelling against jehovah since the day I became acquainted with you.
כדמַמְרִ֥ים הֱיִיתֶ֖ם עִם־יְהֹוָ֑ה מִיּ֖וֹם דַּעְתִּ֥י אֶתְכֶֽם:

25 So I fell down before jehovah the forty days and the forty nights that I had fallen down; because jehovah had said to destroy you.
כהוָֽאֶתְנַפַּ֞ל לִפְנֵ֣י יְהֹוָ֗ה אֵ֣ת אַרְבָּעִ֥ים הַיּ֛וֹם וְאֶת־אַרְבָּעִ֥ים הַלַּ֖יְלָה אֲשֶׁ֣ר הִתְנַפָּ֑לְתִּי כִּֽי־אָמַ֥ר יְהֹוָ֖ה לְהַשְׁמִ֥יד אֶתְכֶֽם:

26 And I prayed to jehovah and said,
"Jehovah God, do not destroy Your people and Your inheritance, which You have redeemed in Your greatness, and which You have brought out of Egypt with mighty hand.
כווָֽאֶתְפַּלֵּ֣ל אֶל־יְהֹוָה֘ וָֽאֹמַר֒ אֲדֹנָ֣י יֱהֹוִ֗ה אַל־תַּשְׁחֵ֤ת עַמְּךָ֙ וְנַֽחֲלָ֣תְךָ֔ אֲשֶׁ֥ר פָּדִ֖יתָ בְּגָדְלֶ֑ךָ אֲשֶׁר־הוֹצֵ֥אתָ מִמִּצְרַ֖יִם בְּיָ֥ד חֲזָקָֽה:

27 Remember your servants, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; do not turn to the stubbornness of this people, to their wickedness, or to their sin.
כזזְכֹר֙ לַֽעֲבָדֶ֔יךָ לְאַבְרָהָ֥ם לְיִצְחָ֖ק וּלְיַֽעֲקֹ֑ב אַל־תֵּ֗פֶן אֶל־קְשִׁי֙ הָעָ֣ם הַזֶּ֔ה וְאֶל־רִשְׁע֖וֹ וְאֶל־חַטָּאתֽוֹ:

28 Lest [the people of] the land from which you brought us out will say,
‘Because of jehovah’s inability to bring them to the land about which He spoke to them, and because of His hatred toward them, He has brought them out to slay them in the desert.’
כחפֶּן־יֹֽאמְר֗וּ הָאָ֘רֶץ֘ אֲשֶׁ֣ר הֽוֹצֵאתָ֣נוּ מִשָּׁם֒ מִבְּלִי֙ יְכֹ֣לֶת יְהֹוָ֔ה לַֽהֲבִיאָ֕ם אֶל־הָאָ֖רֶץ אֲשֶׁר־דִּבֶּ֣ר לָהֶ֑ם וּמִשִּׂנְאָת֣וֹ אוֹתָ֔ם הֽוֹצִיאָ֖ם לַֽהֲמִתָ֥ם בַּמִּדְבָּֽר:

29 But they are Your people and Your inheritance, which You brought out with Your great strength and with Your outstretched arm."

Part II Jeremiah

17,10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. {S}

17,11 As the partridge that broodeth over young which she hath not brought forth, so is he that getteth riches, and not by right; in the midst of his days he shall leave them, and at his end he shall be a fool.

17,12 Thou throne of glory, on high from the beginning, thou place of our sanctuary,

17,13 Thou hope of Israel, the LORD! All that forsake Thee shall be ashamed; they that depart from Thee shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters. {P}

17,14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved; for Thou art my praise.

17,15 Behold, they say unto me:

‘Where is the word of the LORD? let it come now.’

17,16 As for me, I have not hastened from being a shepherd after Thee; neither have I desired the woeful day; Thou knowest it; that which came out of my lips was manifest before Thee.

17,17 Be not a ruin unto me; thou art my refuge in the day of evil.

17,18 Let them be ashamed that persecute me, but let not me be ashamed; let them be dismayed, but let not me be dismayed; bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction. {S}

17,19 Thus said the LORD unto me: Go, and stand in the gate of the children of the people, whereby the kings of Judah come in, and by which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem;

17,20 and say unto them:

Hear ye the word of the LORD, ye kings of Judah, and all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, that enter in by these gates;

17,21 thus saith the LORD:

Take heed for the sake of your souls, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem;

17,22 neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do ye any work; but hallow ye the sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers;

17,23 but they hearkened not, neither inclined their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction.

17,24 And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently hearken unto Me, saith the LORD, to bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the sabbath day, but to hallow the sabbath day, to do no work therein;

17,25 then shall there enter in by the gates of this city kings and princes sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their princes, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and this city shall be inhabited for ever.

17,26 And they shall come from the cities of Judah, and from the places round about Jerusalem, and from the land of Benjamin, and from the Lowland, and from the mountains, and from the South, bringing burnt-offerings, and sacrifices, and meal-offerings, and frankincense, and bringing sacrifices of thanksgiving, unto the house of the LORD.

17,27 But if ye will not hearken unto Me to hallow the sabbath day, and not to bear a burden and enter in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched. {P}

18,1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying:

18,2 ‘Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear My words.’

18,3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he was at his work on the wheels.

18,4 And whensoever the vessel that he made of the clay was marred in the hand of the potter, he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. {S}

18,5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying:

18,6 ‘O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay in the potter’s hand, so are ye in My hand, O house of Israel. {S}

18,7 At one instant I may speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up and to break down and to destroy it;

Part III Ecclesiastes

2,4 I made me great works; I builded me houses; I planted me vineyards;

2,5 I made me gardens and parks, and I planted trees in them of all kinds of fruit; 2,6 I made me pools of water, to water therefrom the wood springing up with trees;

2,7 I acquired men-servants and maid-servants, and had servants born in my house; also I had great possessions of herds and flocks, above all that were before me in Jerusalem;

2,8 I gathered me also silver and gold, and treasure such as kings and the provinces have as their own; I got me men-singers and women-singers, and the delights of the sons of men, women very many.

2,9 So I was great, and increased more than all that were before me in Jerusalem; also my wisdom stood me in stead.

2,10 And whatsoever mine eyes desired I kept not from them; I withheld not my heart from any joy, for my heart had joy of all my labour; and this was my portion from all my labour.

2,11 Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do; and, behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was no profit under the sun.

2,12 And I turned myself to behold wisdom, and madness and folly; for what can the man do that cometh after the king? even that which hath been already done.

2,13 Then I saw that wisdom excelleth folly, as far as light excelleth darkness.

2,14 The wise man, his eyes are in his head; but the fool walketh in darkness. And I also perceived that one event happeneth to them all.

2,15 Then said I in my heart:

‘As it happeneth to the fool, so will it happen even to me; and why was I then more wise?’

Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity.

2,16 For of the wise man, even as of the fool, there is no remembrance for ever; seeing that in the days to come all will long ago have been forgotten. And how must the wise man die even as the fool!

2,17 So I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun was grievous unto me; for all is vanity and a striving after wind.

2,18 And I hated all my labour wherein I laboured under the sun, seeing that I must leave it unto the man that shall be after me.

2,19 And who knoweth whether he will be a wise man or a fool? yet will he have rule over all my labour wherein I have laboured, and wherein I have shown myself wise under the sun. This also is vanity.

2,20 Therefore I turned about to cause my heart to despair concerning all the labour wherein I had laboured under the sun.

2,21 For there is a man whose labour is with wisdom, and with knowledge, and with skill; yet to a man that hath not laboured therein shall he leave it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil.

2,22 For what hath a man of all his labour, and of the striving of his heart, wherein he laboureth under the sun?

2,23 For all his days are pains, and his occupation vexation; yea, even in the night his heart taketh not rest. This also is vanity.

2,24 There is nothing better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and make his soul enjoy pleasure for his labour. This also I saw, that it is from the hand of God.

Part IV The Proclamation of John the Herald – Chapter 13

ܝܘܚܢܢ

16 Verily, verily, I say to you, That no servant is greater than his lord; and no legate is greater than he who sent him.

17 If ye know these things, happy will ye be if ye do them.

18 Not of you all, do I speak:

I know whom I have chosen. But that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me, hath lifted his heel against me.

19 From this time, I tell you, before it occurs, that when it shall occur, ye may know that I am He.

20 Verily, verily, I say to you: He that receiveth him whom I send, receiveth me; and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me.

21 These things said Jesus, and he was agitated in his spirit; and he testified, and said:

Verily, verily, I say to you, That one of you will betray me.

22 And the disciples stared at one another; because they knew not, of whom he spake.

23 And there was one of his disciples, who was reclining on his bosom, he whom Jesus loved;

24 to him Simon Cephas beckoned, that he should ask him, who it was of whom he spoke.

25 And that disciple fell upon the breast of Jesus, and said to him:

My Lord, which is he?
