The November 30 Bible

Part I Deuteronomy

{S} 22,10 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.

22,11 Thou shalt not wear a mingled stuff, wool and linen together.{S}

22,12 Thou shalt make thee twisted cords upon the four corners of thy covering, wherewith thou coverest thyself. {S}

22,13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,

22,14 and lay wanton charges against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say:
‘I took this woman, and when I came nigh to her, I found not in her the tokens of virginity’;

22,15 then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate.

22,16 And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders:
‘I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;

22,17 and, lo, he hath laid wanton charges, saying:
I found not in thy daughter the tokens of virginity; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity.’
And they shall spread the garment before the elders of the city.

22,18 And the elders of that city shall take the man and chastise him.

22,19 And they shall fine him a hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel; and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days. {S}

22,20 But if this thing be true, that the tokens of virginity were not found in the damsel;

22,21 then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die; because she hath wrought a wanton deed in Israel, to play the harlot in her father’s house; so shalt thou put away the evil from the midst of thee. {S}

22,22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to a husband, then they shall both of them die, the man that lay with the woman, and the woman; so shalt thou put away the evil from Israel. {S}

22,23 If there be a damsel that is a virgin betrothed unto a man, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

22,24 then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die: the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife; so thou shalt put away the evil from the midst of thee. {S}

22,25 But if the man find the damsel that is betrothed in the field, and the man take hold of her, and lie with her; then the man only that lay with her shall die.

22,26 But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death; for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter.

Part II Hosea

12,1 Ephraim compasseth Me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit; and Judah is yet wayward towards God, and towards the Holy One who is faithful.

12,2 Ephraim striveth after wind, and followeth after the east wind; all the day he multiplieth lies and desolation; and they make a covenant with Assyria, and oil is carried into Egypt.

12,3 The LORD hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways, according to his doings will He recompense him.

12,4 In the womb he took his brother by the heel, and by his strength he strove with a godlike being;

12,5 So he strove with an angel, and prevailed; he wept, and made supplication unto him; at Beth-el he would find him, and there he would speak with us;

12,6 But the LORD, the God of hosts, the LORD is His name.

12,7 Therefore turn thou to thy God; keep mercy and justice, and wait for thy God continually.

12,8 As for the trafficker, the balances of deceit are in his hand. He loveth to oppress.

12,9 And Ephraim said:
‘Surely I am become rich, I have found me wealth; in all my labours they shall find in me no iniquity that were sin.’

12,10 But I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt; I will yet again make thee to dwell in tents, as in the days of the appointed season.

12,11 I have also spoken unto the prophets, and I have multiplied visions; and by the ministry of the prophets have I used similitudes.

12,12 If Gilead be given to iniquity becoming altogether vanity, in Gilgal they sacrifice unto bullocks; yea, their altars shall be as heaps in the furrows of the field.

12,13 And Jacob fled into the field of Aram, and Israel served for a wife, and for a wife he kept sheep.

12,14 And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel up out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he kept.

12,15 Ephraim hath provoked most bitterly; therefore shall his blood be cast upon him, and his reproach shall his Lord return unto him.

13,1 When Ephraim spoke, there was trembling, he exalted himself in Israel; but when he became guilty through Baal, he died.

13,2 And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images of their silver, according to their own understanding, even idols, all of them the work of the craftsmen; of them they say:
‘They that sacrifice men kiss calves.’

13,3 Therefore they shall be as the morning cloud, and as the dew that early passeth away, as the chaff that is driven with the wind out of the threshing-floor, and as the smoke out of the window.

13,4 Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt; and thou knowest no God but Me, and beside Me there is no saviour.

13,5 I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.

13,6 When they were fed, they became full, they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten Me.

13,7 Therefore am I become unto them as a lion; as a leopard will I watch by the way;

13,8 I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the enclosure of their heart; and there will I devour them like a lioness; the wild beast shall tear them.

13,9 It is thy destruction, O Israel, that thou art against Me, against thy help.

13,10 Ho, now, thy king, that he may save thee in all thy cities! and thy judges, of whom thou saidst:
‘Give me a king and princes!’

13,11 I give thee a king in Mine anger, and take him away in My wrath. {P}

13,12 The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is laid up in store.

Part III Chronicles

1 17,11 And it shall come to pass, when thy days are fulfilled that thou must go to be with thy fathers, that I will set up thy seed after thee, who shall be of thy sons; and I will establish his kingdom.

1 17,12 He shall build Me a house, and I will establish his throne for ever.

1 17,13 I will be to him for a father, and he shall be to Me for a son; and I will not take My mercy away from him, as I took it from him that was before thee;

1 17,14 but I will settle him in My house and in My kingdom for ever; and his throne shall be established for ever.’

1 17,15 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David. {P}

1 17,16 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?

1 17,17 And this was a small thing in Thine eyes, O God; but Thou hast spoken of Thy servant’s house for a great while to come, and hast regarded me after the manner of a man of high degree, O LORD God.

1 17,18 What can David say yet more unto Thee concerning the honour which is done to Thy servant? for Thou knowest Thy servant.

1 17,19 O LORD, for Thy servant’s sake, and according to Thine own heart, hast Thou wrought all this greatness, to make known all these great things.

1 17,20 O LORD, there is none like Thee, neither is there any God beside Thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

1 17,21 And who is like Thy people Israel, a nation one in the earth, whom God went to redeem unto Himself for a people, to make Thee a name by great and tremendous things, in driving out nations from before Thy people, whom Thou didst redeem out of Egypt.

1 17,22 For Thy people Israel didst Thou make Thine own people for ever; and Thou, LORD, becamest their God.

1 17,23 And now, O LORD, let the word that Thou hast spoken concerning Thy servant, and concerning his house, be established for ever, and do as Thou hast spoken.

1 17,24 Yea, let it be established, and let Thy name be magnified for ever, that it may be said:
The LORD of hosts is the God of Israel, even a God to Israel; and the house of David Thy servant shall be established before Thee.

1 17,25 For Thou, O my God, hast revealed to Thy servant that Thou wilt build him a house; therefore hath Thy servant taken heart to pray before Thee.

1 17,26 And now, O LORD, Thou alone art God, and hast promised this good thing unto Thy servant;

1 17,27 and now it hath pleased Thee to bless the house of Thy servant, that it may continue for ever before Thee; for Thou, O LORD, hast blessed, and so let [Thy servant] be blessed for ever.’ {P}

1 18,1 And after this it came to pass, that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them, and took Gath and its towns out of the hand of the Philistines.

1 18,2 And he smote Moab; and the Moabites became servants to David, and brought presents.

1 18,3 And David smote Hadarezer king of Zobah by Hamath, as he went to establish his dominion at the river Euphrates.

1 18,4 And David took from him a thousand chariots, and seven thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen; and David houghed all the chariot horses, but reserved of them for a hundred chariots.

1 18,5 And when the Arameans of Damascus came to succour Hadarezer king of Zobah, David smote of the Arameans two and twenty thousand men.

Part IV The Book of Acts – Chapter 4
܀ ܦܪܟܣܣ ܕܫܠܝ̈ܚܐ ܀

34 And no one among them was destitute; for those who possessed lands or houses, sold, and brought the price of what was sold,

35 and placed [it] at the feet of the legates; and distribution was made to every one, as he had need.

36 And Joseph, who by the legates was surnamed Barnabas, (which is interpreted Son of Consolation,) a Levite of the country of Cyprus,

37 had a field: and he sold it, and brought the price of it, and laid [it] before the feet of the legates.

The Book of Acts – Chapter 5
܀ ܦܪܟܣܣ ܕܫܠܝ̈ܚܐ ܀

1 And a certain man whose name was Ananias, with his wife whose name was Sapphira, sold his field,

2 and carried away [part] of the price and concealed it, his wife consenting; and he brought [a part] of the money, and laid [it] before the feet of the legates.

3 And Simon said to him:
Ananias, why hath Satan so filled thy heart, that thou shouldst lie against the Holy Spirit, and conceal of the money of the price of the field ?

4 Was it not thine own before it was sold ? And when sold, again thou hadst authority over the price of it. Why hast thou set thy heart to do this purpose? Thou hast not lied against men, but against God.

5 And when Ananias heard these words, he fell down, and died. And great fear was upon all them that heard [of it].

6 And the young men among them arose, and gathered him up, and carried [him] out, and buried him.

7 And when three hours had passed, his wife also came in, without knowing what had occurred.
