Psalms

45,1 For the Leader; upon Shoshannim; [a Psalm] of the sons of Korah. Maschil. A Song of loves.

45,2 My heart overfloweth with a goodly matter; I say:

‘My work is concerning a king’; {N}

my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

45,3 Thou art fairer than the children of men; grace is poured upon thy lips; {N}

therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.

45,4 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O mighty one, thy glory and thy majesty.

45,5 And in thy majesty prosper, ride on, in behalf of truth and meekness and righteousness; {N}

and let thy right hand teach thee tremendous things.

45,6 Thine arrows are sharp–

the peoples fall under thee–

[they sink] into the heart of the king’s enemies.

45,7 Thy throne given of God is for ever and ever; a sceptre of equity is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

45,8 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated wickedness; {N}

therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

45,9 Myrrh, and aloes, and cassia are all thy garments; out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made thee glad.

45,10 Kings’ daughters are among thy favourites; at thy right hand doth stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

45,11 ‘Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father’s house;

45,12 So shall the king desire thy beauty; for he is thy lord; and do homage unto him.

45,13 And, O daughter of Tyre, the richest of the people shall entreat thy favour with a gift.’

45,14 All glorious is the king’s daughter within the palace; her raiment is of chequer work inwrought with gold.

45,15 She shall be led unto the king on richly woven stuff; the virgins her companions in her train being brought unto thee.

45,16 They shall be led with gladness and rejoicing; they shall enter into the king’s palace.

45,17 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy sons, whom thou shalt make princes in all the land.

45,18 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations; therefore shall the peoples praise thee for ever and ever. {P}

Exodus

35,20 And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.

35,21 And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and brought the LORD’S offering, for the work of the tent of meeting, and for all the service thereof, and for the holy garments.

35,22 And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing-hearted, and brought nose-rings, and ear-rings, and signet-rings, and girdles, all jewels of gold; even every man that brought an offering of gold unto the LORD.

35,23 And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and rams’ skins dyed red, and sealskins, brought them.

35,24 Every one that did set apart an offering of silver and brass brought the LORD’S offering; and every man, with whom was found acacia-wood for any work of the service, brought it.

35,25 And all the women that were wise-hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, the blue, and the purple, the scarlet, and the fine linen.

35,26 And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun the goats’ hair.

35,27 And the rulers brought the onyx stones, and the stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate; 35,28 and the spice, and the oil, for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.

35,29 The children of Israel brought a freewill-offering unto the LORD; every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all the work, which the LORD had commanded by the hand of Moses to be made. {P}

35,30 And Moses said unto the children of Israel:

‘See, the LORD hath called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.

35,31 And He hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship.

35,32 And to devise skilful works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

35,33 and in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving of wood, to work in all manner of skilful workmanship.

35,34 And He hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.

35,35 Them hath He filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of workmanship, of the craftsman, and of the skilful workman, and of the weaver in colours, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any workmanship, and of those that devise skilful works.

36,1 And Bezalel and Oholiab shall work, and every wise-hearted man, in whom the LORD hath put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all the work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the LORD hath commanded.’

Judges

16,23 And the lords of the Philistines gathered them together to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice; for they said:

‘Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand.’

16,24 And when the people saw him, they praised their god; for they said:

‘Our god hath delivered into our hand our enemy, and the destroyer of our country, who hath slain many of us.’

16,25 And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said:

‘Call for Samson, that he may make us sport.’

And they called for Samson out of the prison-house; and he made sport before them; and they set him between the pillars.

16,26 And Samson said unto the lad that held him by the hand:

‘Suffer me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house resteth, that I may lean upon them.’

16,27 Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport.

16,28 And Samson called unto the LORD, and said:

‘O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray Thee, and strengthen me, I pray Thee, only this once, O God, that I may be this once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.’

16,29 And Samson took fast hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house rested, and leaned upon them, the one with his right hand, and the other with his left.

16,30 And Samson said:

‘Let me die with the Philistines.’

And he bent with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead that he slew at his death were more than they that he slew in his life.

16,31 Then his brethren and all the house of his father came down, and took him, and brought him up, and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol in the burying-place of Manoah his father. And he judged Israel twenty years. {P}

17,1 Now there was a man of the hill-country of Ephraim, whose name was Micah.

17,2 And he said unto his mother:

‘The eleven hundred pieces of silver that were taken from thee, about which thou didst utter a curse, and didst also speak it in mine ears, behold, the silver is with me; I took it.’

And his mother said: ‘Blessed be my son of the LORD.’

17,3 And he restored the eleven hundred pieces of silver to his mother, and his mother said:

‘I verily dedicate the silver unto the LORD from my hand for my son, to make a graven image and a molten image; now therefore I will restore it unto thee.’

17,4 And when he restored the money unto his mother, his mother took two hundred pieces of silver, and gave them to the founder, who made thereof a graven image and a molten image; and it was in the house of Micah. 17,5 And the man Micah had a house of God, and he made an ephod, and teraphim, and consecrated one of his sons, who became his priest.

17,6 In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did that which was right in his own eyes. {P}

17,7 And there was a young man out of Beth-lehem in Judah–

in the family of Judah–

who was a Levite, and he sojourned there.

17,8 And the man departed out of the city, out of Beth-lehem in Judah, to sojourn where he could find a place; and he came to the hill-country of Ephraim to the house of Micah, as he journeyed.

17,9 And Micah said unto him:

‘Whence comest thou?’

And he said unto him:

‘I am a Levite of Beth-lehem in Judah, and I go to sojourn where I may find a place.’

17,10 And Micah said unto him:

‘Dwell with me, and be unto me a father and a priest, and I will give thee ten pieces of silver by the year, and a suit of apparel, and thy victuals.’

So the Levite went in.

17,11 And the Levite was content to dwell with the man; and the young man was unto him as one of his sons. 17,12 And Micah consecrated the Levite, and the young man became his priest, and was in the house of Micah. 17,13 Then said Micah: ‘Now know I that the LORD will do me good, seeing I have a Levite as my priest.’ {P}

18,1 In those days there was no king in Israel; and in those days the tribe of the Danites sought them an inheritance to dwell in; for unto that day there had nothing been allotted unto them among the tribes of Israel for an inheritance. {P}

18,2 And the children of Dan sent of their family five men from their whole number, men of valour, from Zorah, and from Eshtaol, to spy out the land, and to search it; and they said unto them:

‘Go, search the land’;

and they came to the hill-country of Ephraim, unto the house of Micah, and lodged there.

18,3 When they were by the house of Micah, they knew the voice of the young man the Levite; and they turned aside thither, and said unto him:

‘Who brought thee hither? and what doest thou in this place? and what hast thou here?’

18,4 And he said unto them:

‘Thus and thus hath Micah dealt with me, and he hath hired me, and I am become his priest.’

Proverbs

23,12 Apply thy heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.

23,13 Withhold not correction from the child; for though thou beat him with the rod, he will not die.

23,14 Thou beatest him with the rod, and wilt deliver his soul from the nether-world.

23,15 My son, if thy heart be wise, my heart will be glad, even mine;

23,16 Yea, my reins will rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.

23,17 Let not thy heart envy sinners, but be in the fear of the LORD all the day;

23,18 For surely there is a future; and thy hope shall not be cut off.

23,19 Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thy heart in the way.

23,20 Be not among winebibbers; among gluttonous eaters of flesh;

23,21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty; and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

23,22 Hearken unto thy father that begot thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.

23,23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

23,24 The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; and he that begetteth a wise child will have joy of him.

23,25 Let thy father and thy mother be glad, and let her that bore thee rejoice.

23,26 My son, give me thy heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.

The Announcement of Matthew – Chapter 12

44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure that is hid in a field; which when a man findeth, he concealeth it, and, from his joy, he goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchantman, who sought after rich pearls:

46 and when he found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a sweep net, which was cast into the sea, and collected [fishes] of every kind.

48 And when it was full, they drew it to the shores of the sea; and they sat down and culled over:

and the good they put into vessels, and the bad they cast away.

49 So will it be in the end of the world. The angels will go forth, and will sever the wicked from among the just;

50 and will cast them into a furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

51 Jesus said to them:

Have ye understood all these things?

They say to him:

Yes, our Lord.

52 He said to them:

Therefore every Scribe who is instructed for the kingdom of heaven, is like a man who is master of a house, who bringeth forth from his treasures things new and old.

53 And it was so, that when Jesus had ended these similitudes, he departed thence.

The Book of Acts – Chapter 7

11 And they acquiesced in him, because for a long time he had astonished them by his sorceries.

12 But when they gave credence to Philip, as he preached the kingdom of God, in the name of our Lord Jesus Messiah; they were baptized, both men and women.

13 And Simon himself also believed, and was baptized, and adhered to Philip. And when he saw the signs and mighty deeds which were wrought by his hand, he was surprised and astonished.

14 And when the legates at Jerusalem, heard that the people of the Samaritans had received the word of God, they sent out to them Simon Cephas and John.

15 And they went down, and prayed over them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit.

16 For he was not yet on any one of them; and they had only been baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus.
