Psalms 2/16
48,1 A Song; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.
48,2 Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised, in the city of our God, His holy mountain,
48,3 Fair in situation, the joy of the whole earth; {N}
even mount Zion, the uttermost parts of the north, the city of the great King.
48,4 God in her palaces hath made Himself known for a stronghold.
48,5 For, lo, the kings assembled themselves, they came onward together.
48,6 They saw, straightway they were amazed; they were affrighted, they hasted away.
48,7 Trembling took hold of them there, pangs, as of a woman in travail.
48,8 With the east wind Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish.
48,9 As we have heard, so have we seen {N}
in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God– {N}
God establish it for ever.
Selah
48,10 We have thought on Thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of Thy temple.
48,11 As is Thy name, O God, so is Thy praise unto the ends of the earth; {N}
Thy right hand is full of righteousness.
48,12 Let mount Zion be glad, let the daughters of Judah rejoice, because of Thy judgments.
48,13 Walk about Zion, and go round about her; count the towers thereof.
48,14 Mark ye well her ramparts, traverse her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
48,15 For such is God, our God, for ever and ever; He will guide us eternally. {P}
Exodus 
 
37,1 And Bezalel made the ark of acacia-wood:
two cubits and a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it.
37,2 And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and made a crown of gold to it round about.
37,3 And he cast for it four rings of gold, in the four feet thereof:
even two rings on the one side of it, and two rings on the other side of it.
37,4 And he made staves of acacia-wood, and overlaid them with gold.
37,5 And he put the staves into the rings on the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.
37,6 And he made an ark-cover of pure gold:
two cubits and a half was the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.
37,7 And he made two cherubim of gold:
of beaten work made he them, at the two ends of the ark-cover:
37,8 one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the other end; of one piece with the ark-cover made he the cherubim at the two ends thereof.
37,9 And the cherubim spread out their wings on high, screening the ark-cover with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the ark-cover were the faces of the cherubim. {P}
37,10 And he made the table of acacia-wood:
two cubits was the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
37,11 And he overlaid it with pure gold, and made thereto a crown of gold round about.
37,12 And he made unto it a border of a hand-breadth round about, and made a golden crown to the border thereof round about.
37,13 And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that were on the four feet thereof.
37,14 Close by the border were the rings, the holders for the staves to bear the table.
37,15 And he made the staves of acacia-wood, and overlaid them with gold, to bear the table.
37,16 And he made the vessels which were upon the table, the dishes thereof, and the pans thereof, and the bowls thereof, and the jars thereof, wherewith to pour out, of pure gold. {P}
37,17 And he made the candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work made he the candlestick, even its base, and its shaft; its cups, its knops, and its flowers, were of one piece with it.
Judges 

19,27 And her lord rose up in the morning, and opened the doors of the house, and went out to go his way; and, behold, the woman his concubine was fallen down at the door of the house, with her hands upon the threshold. 19,28 And he said unto her.
‘Up, and let us be going’;
but none answered; then he took her up upon the ass; and the man rose up, and got him unto his place.
19,29 And when he was come into his house, he took a knife, and laid hold on his concubine, and divided her, limb by limb, into twelve pieces, and sent her throughout all the borders of Israel.
19,30 And it was so, that all that saw it said:
‘Such a thing hath not happened nor been seen from the day that the children of Israel came up out of the land of Egypt unto this day; consider it, take counsel, and speak.’ {P}
20,1 Then all the children of Israel went out, and the congregation was assembled as one man, from Dan even to Beer-sheba, with the land of Gilead, unto the LORD at Mizpah.
20,2 And the chiefs of all the people, even of all the tribes of Israel, presented themselves in the assembly of the people of God, four hundred thousand footmen that drew sword.– {P}
20,3 Now the children of Benjamin heard that the children of Israel were gone up to Mizpah.–
And the children of Israel said:
‘Tell us, how was this wickedness brought to pass?’
20,4 And the Levite, the husband of the woman that was murdered, answered and said:
‘I came into Gibeah that belongeth to Benjamin, I and my concubine, to lodge.
20,5 And the men of Gibeah rose against me, and beset the house round about upon me by night; me they thought to have slain, and my concubine they forced, and she is dead.
20,6 And I took my concubine, and cut her in pieces, and sent her throughout all the country of the inheritance of Israel; for they have committed lewdness and wantonness in Israel.
20,7 Behold, ye are all here, children of Israel, give here your advice and council.’
20,8 And all the people arose as one man, saying:
‘We will not any of us go to his tent, neither will we any of us turn unto his house.
20,9 But now this is the thing which we will do to Gibeah:
we will go up against it by lot;
20,10 and we will take ten men of a hundred throughout all the tribes of Israel, and a hundred of a thousand, and a thousand out of ten thousand, to fetch victuals for the people, that they may do, when they come to Gibeah of Benjamin, according to all the wantonness that they have wrought in Israel.’
20,11 So all the men of Israel were gathered against the city, knit together as one man. {P}
20,12 And the tribes of Israel sent men through all the tribe of Benjamin, saying:
‘What wickedness is this that is come to pass among you?
20,13 Now therefore deliver up the men, the base fellows that are in Gibeah, that we may put them to death, and put away evil from Israel.’
But the children of Benjamin would not hearken to the voice of their brethren the children of Israel.
20,14 And the children of Benjamin gathered themselves together out of their cities unto Gibeah, to go out to battle against the children of Israel.
20,15 And the children of Benjamin numbered on that day out of the cities twenty and six thousand men that drew sword, besides the inhabitants of Gibeah, who numbered seven hundred chosen men.
20,16 All this people, even seven hundred chosen men, were left-handed; every one could sling stones at a hair-breadth, and not miss. {P}
20,17 And the men of Israel, beside Benjamin, numbered four hundred thousand men that drew sword; all these were men of war.
20,18 And the children of Israel arose, and went up to Beth-el, and asked counsel of God; and they said:
‘Who shall go up for us first to battle against the children of Benjamin?’
And the LORD said:
‘Judah first.’
20,19 And the children of Israel rose up in the morning, and encamped against Gibeah.
20,20 And the men of Israel went out to battle against Benjamin; and the men of Israel set the battle in array against them at Gibeah.
20,21 And the children of Benjamin came forth out of Gibeah, and destroyed down to the ground of the Israelites on that day twenty and two thousand men.
20,22 And the people, the men of Israel, encouraged themselves, and set the battle again in array in the place where they set themselves in array the first day.
Proverbs 
 
24,23 These also are sayings of the wise. To have respect of persons in judgment is not good.
24,24 He that saith unto the wicked:
‘Thou art righteous’,
peoples shall curse him, nations shall execrate him;
24,25 But to them that decide justly shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.
24,26 He kisseth the lips that giveth a right answer.
24,27 Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thy house. {P}
24,28 Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and deceive not with thy lips.
24,29 Say not:
‘I will do so to him as he hath done to me; I will render to the man according to his work.’ {P}
24,30 I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding;
24,31 And, lo, it was all grown over with thistles, the face thereof was covered with nettles, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.
24,32 Then I beheld, and considered well; I saw, and received instruction.
24,33 ‘Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep’–
24,34 So shall thy poverty come as a runner, and thy want as an armed man. {P}
25,1 These also are proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.
25,2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing; but the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
25,3 The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable.
The Announcement of Matthew – Chapter 14
18 Jesus said to them:
Bring them here to me.
19 And he commanded the multitudes to recline on the ground:
and he took the five cakes and two fishes, and he looked towards heaven, and blessed, and brake, and gave to his disciples; and the disciples placed before the multitudes.
20 And they all ate, and were satisfied :
and they took up the broken remains, twelve full baskets.
21 And the men who had eaten were five thousand, besides the women and children.
22 And immediately he constrained his disciples to embark in a ship, and to go before him to the other side, while he sent away the multitudes.
23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he ascended a mountain alone to pray. And when it was dark, he was there alone.
24 And the ship was distant from land many furlongs:
meanwhile it was much tossed by the waves; for the wind was adverse to it.
25 And in the fourth watch of the night, Jesus came up to them, walking upon the waters.
26 And his disciples saw him as he walked upon the waters, and they were perturbated:
and they said,
What we see is a spectre:
and they cried out through fear.
27 But Jesus immediately spoke to them, and said:
Have courage:
it is I; be not afraid.
28 Cephas replied, and said to him:
My Lord, if it be thou, bid me come to thee on the waters.
The Book of Acts – Chapter 7
29 And the Holy Spirit said to Philip:
Go near, and join thyself to the chariot.
30 And when he came near, he heard him reading in Isaiah the prophet; and he said to him:
Understandest thou what thou readest ?
31 And he said:
How can I understand, unless some one instruct me ?
And he requested of Philip, that he would come up and sit with him.
32 And the section of scripture in which he was reading, was this:
As a lamb to the slaughter he was led away, and as a sheep before the shearer is silent, so also he in his humility opened not his mouth.
33 From prison and from judgment he was carried:
and his generation, who will declare? for his life is taken away from the earth.
34 And the eunuch said to Philip:
I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this ? of himself, or of some other person ?
