Psalms
110,1 A Psalm of David. {N}
The LORD saith unto my lord:
‘Sit thou at My right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.’
110,2 The rod of Thy strength the LORD will send out of Zion:
‘Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.’
110,3 Thy people offer themselves willingly in the day of thy warfare; {N}
in adornments of holiness, from the womb of the dawn, thine is the dew of thy youth.
110,4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent:
‘Thou art a priest for ever {N}
after the manner of Melchizedek.’
110,5 The LORD at thy right hand doth crush kings in the day of His wrath.
110,6 He will judge among the nations; He filleth it with dead bodies, He crusheth the head over a wide land.
110,7 He will drink of the brook in the way; therefore will he lift up the head. {P}

Numbers
2,34 Thus did the sons of Israel:
according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so they pitched by their standards, and so they set forward, each one according to its families, and according to its fathers’ houses. {P}
3,1 Now these are the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day that the LORD spoke with Moses in mount Sinai.
3,2 And these are the names of the sons of Aaron:
Nadab the first-born, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.
3,3 These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the priests that were anointed, whom he consecrated to minister in the priest’s office.
3,4 And Nadab and Abihu died before the LORD, when they offered strange fire before the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children; and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest’s office in the presence of Aaron their father. {P}
3,5 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
3,6 ‘Bring the tribe of Levi near, and set them before Aaron the priest, that they may minister unto him.
3,7 And they shall keep his charge, and the charge of the whole congregation before the tent of meeting, to do the service of the tabernacle.
3,8 And they shall keep all the furniture of the tent of meeting, and the charge of the sons of Israel, to do the service of the tabernacle.
3,9 And thou shalt give the Levites unto Aaron and to his sons; they are wholly given unto him from the children of Israel.
3,10 And thou shalt appoint Aaron and his sons, that they may keep their priesthood; and the common man that draweth nigh shall be put to death.’ {P}
3,11 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
3,12 ‘And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the sons of Israel instead of every first-born that openeth the womb among the sons of Israel; and the Levites shall be Mine;
3,13 for all the first-born are Mine:
on the day that I smote all the first-born in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto Me all the first-born in Israel, both man and beast, Mine they shall be:
I am the LORD.’ {P}
3,14 And the LORD spoke unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying:
3,15 ‘Number the sons of Levi by their fathers’ houses, by their families; every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them.’
3,16 And Moses numbered them according to the word of the LORD, as he was commanded.

Kings
1 1,53 So king Solomon sent, and they brought him down from the altar.
And he came and prostrated himself before king Solomon; and Solomon said unto him:
‘Go to thy house.’ {P}
1 2,1 Now the days of David drew nigh that he should die; and he charged Solomon his son, saying:
1 2,2 ‘I go the way of all the earth; be thou strong therefore, and show thyself a man;
1 2,3 and keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, and His commandments, and His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to that which is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself;
1 2,4 that the LORD may establish His word which He spoke concerning me, saying:
If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before Me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee, said He, a man on the throne of Israel.
1 2,5 Moreover thou knowest also what Joab the son of Zeruiah did unto me, even what he did to the two captains of the hosts of Israel, unto Abner the son of Ner and unto Amasa the son of Jether, whom he slew, and shed the blood of war in peace, and put the blood of war upon his girdle that was about his loins, and in his shoes that were on his feet.
1 2,6 Do therefore according to thy wisdom, and let not his hoar head go down to the grave in peace.
1 2,7 But show kindness unto the sons of Barzillai the Gileadite, and let them be of those that eat at thy table; for so they drew nigh unto me when I fled from Absalom thy brother.
1 2,8 And, behold, there is with thee Shimei the son of Gera, the Benjamite, of Bahurim, who cursed me with a grievous curse in the day when I went to Mahanaim; but he came down to meet me at the Jordan, and I swore to him by the LORD, saying:
I will not put thee to death with the sword.
1 2,9 Now therefore hold him not guiltless, for thou art a wise man; and thou wilt know what thou oughtest to do unto him, and thou shalt bring his hoar head down to the grave with blood.’
1 2,10 And David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David. {P}
1 2,11 And the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years:
seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem.
1 2,12 And Solomon sat upon the throne of David his father; and his kingdom was established firmly. {S}
1 2,13 Then Adonijah the son of Haggith came to Bath-sheba the mother of Solomon. And she said:
‘Comest thou peaceably?’
And he said:
‘Peaceably.’
1 2,14 He said moreover:
‘I have somewhat to say unto thee.’
And she said:
‘Say on.’
1 2,15 And he said:
‘Thou knowest that the kingdom was mine, and that all Israel set their faces on me, that I should reign; howbeit the kingdom is turned about, and is become my brother’s; for it was his from the LORD.
1 2,16 And now I ask one petition of thee, deny me not.’
And she said unto him:
‘Say on.’
1 2,17 And he said:
‘Speak, I pray thee, unto Solomon the king–
for he will not say thee nay–
that he give me Abishag the Shunammite to wife.’
1 2,18 And Bath-sheba said:
‘Well; I will speak for thee unto the king.’
1 2,19 Bath-sheba therefore went unto king Solomon, to speak unto him for Adonijah.
And the king rose up to meet her, and bowed down unto her, and sat down on his throne, and caused a throne to be set for the king’s mother; and she sat on his right hand.
1 2,20 Then she said:
‘I ask one small petition of thee; deny me not.’
And the king said unto her:
‘Ask on, my mother; for I will not deny thee.’
1 2,21 And she said:
‘Let Abishag the Shunammite be given to Adonijah thy brother to wife.’
1 2,22 And king Solomon answered and said unto his mother:
‘And why dost thou ask Abishag the Shunammite for Adonijah? ask for him the kingdom also; for he is mine elder brother; even for him, and for Abiathar the priest, and for Joab the son of Zeruiah.’ {P}
1 2,23 Then king Solomon swore by the LORD, saying:
‘God do so to me, and more also, if Adonijah have not spoken this word against his own life.
1 2,24 Now therefore as the LORD liveth, who hath established me, and set me on the throne of David my father, and who hath made me a house, as He promised, surely Adonijah shall be put to death this day.’
1 2,25 And king Solomon sent by the hand of Benaiah the son of Jehoiada; and he fell upon him, so that he died. {S}

Job
31,24 If I have made gold my hope, and have said to the fine gold:
‘Thou art my confidence’;
31,25 If I rejoiced because my wealth was great, and because my hand had gotten much;
31,26 If I beheld the sun when it shined, or the moon walking in brightness;
31,27 And my heart hath been secretly enticed, and my mouth hath kissed my hand;
31,28 This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judges; for I should have lied to God that is above.
31,29 If I rejoiced at the destruction of him that hated me, or exulted when evil found him–
31,30 Yea, I suffered not my mouth to sin by asking his life with a curse.
31,31 If the men of my tent said not:
‘Who can find one that hath not been satisfied with his meat?’
31,32 The stranger did not lodge in the street; my doors I opened to the roadside.
31,33 If after the manner of men I covered my transgressions, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom–
31,34 Because I feared the great multitude, and the most contemptible among families terrified me, {N}
so that I kept silence, and went not out of the door.
31,35 Oh that I had one to hear me!–
Lo, here is my signature, let the Almighty answer me– {N}
and that I had the indictment which mine adversary hath written!
31,36 Surely I would carry it upon my shoulder; I would bind it unto me as a crown.
31,37 I would declare unto him the number of my steps; as a prince would I go near unto him.

The Annunciation of Mark – Chapter 3
23 And Jesus called them, and said to them, by similitudes :
How can Satan cast out Satan ?
24 For if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
26 And if Satan rise up against himself and be divided, he cannot stand, but is at an end.
27 No one can enter the house of a strong man, and plunder his goods, unless he first bind the strong man; and then he may rob his house.
28 Verily I say to you:
All sins, and the blasphemies that men may utter, may be forgiven them:
29 but whoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, to him for ever there is no forgiveness; but he is obnoxious to eternal judgment.
30 Because they had said:
An unclean spirit is in him.
31 And his mother and his brothers came, and, standing without, sent to call him to them.
32 And the multitude were sitting around him, and they said to him:
Lo, thy mother and thy brothers, without, call for thee.
33 He replied, and said to them:
Who is my mother? and who are my brothers ?

The Book of Acts – Chapter 17
18 And also philosophers of the sect of Epicureans, and others who were called Stoics, disputed with him.
And one and another of them said:
What doth this word-monger mean ?
Others said:
He announceth foreign deities; because he preached to them Jesus and his resurrection.
19 And they took him and brought him to the place of judgments called Areopagus, and said to him:
May we know what this new doctrine which thou preachest is ?
20 For thou scatterest in our ears strange words; and we wish to know what they are.
21 For all the Athenians and the foreigners residing there, cared for nothing else but to tell or to hear something new.
22 And as Paul stood in the Areopagus, he said:
Men, Athenians, I perceive that in all things ye are excessive in the worship of demons.
23 For, as I was rambling about, and viewing the temples of your worship, I met with an altar, on which was inscribed, TO THE HIDDEN GOD.
Him, therefore, whom ye worship while ye know him not, the very same I announce to you.
