The March 31 Bible


Remember the Sabbath


90,1 A Prayer of Moses the man of God. {N}
Lord, Thou hast been our dwelling-place in all generations.
90,2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever Thou hadst formed the earth and the world, {N}
even from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God.
90,3 Thou turnest man to contrition; and sayest:
‘Return, ye children of men.’
90,4 For a thousand years in Thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, {N}
and as a watch in the night.
90,5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep; in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.
90,6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
90,7 For we are consumed in Thine anger, and by Thy wrath are we hurried away.
90,8 Thou hast set our iniquities before Thee, our secret sins in the light of Thy countenance.
90,9 For all our days are passed away in Thy wrath; we bring our years to an end as a tale that is told.
90,10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten, or even by reason of strength fourscore years; {N}
yet is their pride but travail and vanity; {N}
for it is speedily gone, and we fly away.
90,11 Who knoweth the power of Thine anger, and Thy wrath according to the fear that is due unto Thee?
90,12 So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom.
90,13 Return, O LORD; how long? And let it repent Thee concerning Thy servants.
90,14 O satisfy us in the morning with Thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
90,15 Make us glad according to the days wherein Thou hast afflicted us, according to the years wherein we have seen evil.
90,16 Let Thy work appear unto Thy servants, and Thy glory upon their children.
90,17 And let the graciousness of the Lord our God be upon us; {N}
establish Thou also upon us the work of our hands; yea, the work of our hands establish Thou it. {P}
21,10 And the priest that is highest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil is poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not let the hair of his head go loose, nor rend his clothes;
21,11 neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself for his father, or for his mother;
21,12 neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the consecration of the anointing oil of his God is upon him:
I am the LORD.
21,13 And he shall take a wife in her virginity.
21,14 A widow, or one divorced, or a profaned woman, or a harlot, these shall he not take; but a virgin of his own people shall he take to wife.
21,15 And he shall not profane his seed among his people; for I am the LORD who sanctify him. {S}
21,16 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
21,17 Speak unto Aaron, saying:
Whosoever he be of thy seed throughout their generations that hath a blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.
21,18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach:
a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath any thing maimed, or anything too long,
21,19 or a man that is broken-footed, or broken-handed,
21,20 or crook-backed, or a dwarf, or that hath his eye overspread, or is scabbed, or scurvy, or hath his stones crushed;
21,21 no man of the seed of Aaron the priest, that hath a blemish, shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire; he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.
21,22 He may eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy.
21,23 Only he shall not go in unto the veil, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not My holy places; for I am the LORD who sanctify them. 21,24 So Moses spoke unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel. {P}
22,1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
22,2 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel, which they hallow unto Me, and that they profane not My holy name:
I am the LORD.
2 11,6 And David sent to Joab[, saying]:
‘Send me Uriah the Hittite.’
And Joab sent Uriah to David.
2 11,7 And when Uriah was come unto him, David asked of him how Joab did, and how the people fared, and how the war prospered.
2 11,8 And David said to Uriah:
‘Go down to thy house, and wash thy feet.’
And Uriah departed out of the king’s house, and there followed him a mess of food from the king.
2 11,9 But Uriah slept at the door of the king’s house with all the servants of his lord, and went not down to his house.
2 11,10 And when they had told David, saying:
‘Uriah went not down unto his house’,
David said unto Uriah:
‘Art thou not come from a journey? wherefore didst thou not go down unto thy house?’
2 11,11 And Uriah said unto David:
‘The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in booths; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open field; shall I then go into my house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.’
2 11,12 And David said to Uriah:
‘Tarry here to-day also, and to-morrow I will let thee depart.’
So Uriah abode in Jerusalem that day, and the morrow.
2 11,13 And when David had called him, he did eat and drink before him; and he made him drunk; and at even he went out to lie on his bed with the servants of his lord, but went not down to his house.
2 11,14 And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah.
2 11,15 And he wrote in the letter, saying:
‘Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die.’ {S}
2 11,16 And it came to pass, when Joab kept watch upon the city, that he assigned Uriah unto the place where he knew that valiant men were.
2 11,17 And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab; and there fell some of the people, even of the servants of David; and Uriah the Hittite died also.
2 11,18 Then Joab sent and told David all the things concerning the war;
2 11,19 and he charged the messenger, saying:
‘When thou hast made an end of telling all the things concerning the war unto the king,
2 11,20 it shall be that, if the king’s wrath arise, and he say unto thee:
Wherefore went ye so nigh unto the city to fight? knew ye not that they would shoot from the wall?
2 11,21 who smote Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? did not a woman cast an upper millstone upon him from the wall, that he died at Thebez? why went ye so nigh the wall? then shalt thou say:
Thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.’
2 11,22 So the messenger went, and came and told David all that Joab had sent him for.
2 11,23 And the messenger said unto David:
‘The men prevailed against us, and came out unto us into the field, and we were upon them even unto the entrance of the gate.
2 11,24 And the shooters shot at thy servants from off the wall; and some of the king’s servants are dead, and thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.’ {S}
2 11,25 Then David said unto the messenger:
‘Thus shalt thou say unto Joab:
Let not this thing displease thee, for the sword devoureth in one manner or another; make thy battle more strong against the city, and overthrow it; and encourage thou him.’
2 11,26 And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she made lamentation for her husband.
2 11,27 And when the mourning was past, David sent and took her home to his house, and she became his wife, and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the LORD. {P}
2 12,1 And the LORD sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him:
‘There were two men in one city: the one rich, and the other poor.
2 12,2 The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds;
2 12,3 but the poor man had nothing save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and reared; and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own morsel, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.
2 12,4 And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him, but took the poor man’s lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.’
19,10 He hath broken me down on every side, and I am gone; and my hope hath He plucked up like a tree.
19,11 He hath also kindled His wrath against me, and He counteth me unto Him as one of His adversaries.
19,12 His troops come on together, and cast up their way against me, and encamp round about my tent.
19,13 He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are wholly estranged from me.
19,14 My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.
19,15 They that dwell in my house, and my maids, count me for a stranger; I am become an alien in their sight.
19,16 I call unto my servant, and he giveth me no answer, though I entreat him with my mouth.
19,17 My breath is abhorred of my wife, and I am loathsome to the children of my tribe.
19,18 Even urchins despised me; if I arise, they speak against me.
19,19 All my intimate friends abhor me; and they whom I loved are turned against me.
19,20 My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
19,21 Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me.
19,22 Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?
19,23 Oh that my words were now written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book!
19,24 That with an iron pen and lead they were graven in the rock for ever!
The Announcement of Matthew – Chapter 26
39 And retiring a little, he fell on his face, and prayed, and said:
My Father, if it can be so, let this cup pass from me.
Yet not as I choose, but as thou.
40 And he came to his disciples, and found them asleep:
and he said to Cephas:
So! could ye not watch with me one hour ?
41 Wake ye, and pray, lest ye fall into temptation.
The mind is prepared, but the body is infirm.
42 Again he went away the second time, and prayed, and said:
My Father, if it cannot be that this cup pass, except I drink it, thy will be done.
43 And he came again and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy.
44 And he left them, and went again and prayed the third time, and used the same language.
45 Then he came to his disciples, and said to them:
Sleep on now, and take rest.
Behold, the hour is come:
and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
46 Arise, let us go.
Behold, he that betrayeth me hath come.
47 And while he was yet speaking, lo, Judas the betrayer, one of the twelve, arrived; and a great multitude with him, with swords and clubs, from the presence of the chief priests and elders of the people.
48 And Judas the betrayer had given them a sign, saying:
He it is, whom I shall kiss:
him seize ye.
49 And forthwith he approached Jesus, and said:
Hail, Rabbi;
and kissed him.
The Book of Acts – Chapter 14
9 He heard Paul speak:
and when Paul saw him, and knew that he had faith to live;
10 he said to him, with a loud voice:
In the name of our Lord Jesus Messiah, I say to thee, Rise upon thy feet.
And he sprang up, stood, and walked.
11 And the assembly of people, when they saw what Paul had done, raised their voice, and said, in the language of the country:
The gods have assumed the likeness of men, and have come down to us.
12 And they named Barnabas the Lord of the Gods; and Paul Hermes, because he commenced the speaking.
13 And the priest of the Lord of the Gods, who was without the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gate of the court where they lodged, and was disposed to offer sacrifices to them.
