Psalms
119,145 KOPH.

I have called with my whole heart; answer me, O LORD; I will keep Thy statutes.
119,146 I have called Thee, save me, and I will observe Thy testimonies.
119,147 I rose early at dawn, and cried; I hoped in Thy word.
119,148 Mine eyes forestalled the night-watches, that I might meditate in Thy word.
119,149 Hear my voice according unto Thy lovingkindness; quicken me, O LORD, as Thou art wont.
119,150 They draw nigh that follow after wickedness; they are far from Thy law.
119,151 Thou art nigh, O LORD; and all Thy commandments are truth.
119,152 Of old have I known from Thy testimonies that Thou hast founded them for ever. {P}

Numbers

14,36 And the men, whom Moses sent to spy out the land, and who, when they returned, made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up an evil report against the land,
14,37 even those men that did bring up an evil report of the land, died by the plague before the LORD.
14,38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, remained alive of those men that wentto spy out the land.
14,39 And Moses told these words unto all the children of Israel; and the people mourned greatly.
14,40 And they rose up early in the morning, and got them up to the top of the mountain, saying:
‘Lo, we are here, and will go up unto the place which the LORD hath promised; for we have sinned.’
14,41 And Moses said:
‘Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment of the LORD, seeing it shall not prosper?
14,42 Go not up, for the LORD is not among you; that ye be not smitten down before your enemies.
14,43 For there the Amalekite and the Canaanite are before you, and ye shall fall by the sword; forasmuch as ye are turned back from following the LORD, and the LORD will not be with you.’
14,44 But they presumed to go up to the top of the mountain; nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.
14,45 Then the Amalekite and the Canaanite, who dwelt in that hill-country, came down, and smote them and beat them down, even unto Hormah. {P}
15,1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
15,2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them:
When ye are come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you,
15,3 and will make an offering by fire unto the LORD, a burnt-offering, or a sacrifice, in fulfilment of a vow
clearly uttered, or as a freewill-offering, or in your appointed seasons, to make a sweet savour unto the LORD, of the herd, or of the flock;
15,4 then shall he that bringeth his offering present unto the LORD a meal-offering of a tenth part of an ephah of fine flour mingled with the fourth part of a hin of oil;
15,5 and wine for the drink-offering, the fourth part of a hin, shalt thou prepare with the burnt-offering or for the
sacrifice, for each lamb.
15,6 Or for a ram, thou shalt prepare for a meal-offering two tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour mingled with the
third part of a hin of oil;
15,7 and for the drink-offering thou shalt present the third part of a hin of wine, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

Kings
1 21,17 And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying:
1 21,18 ‘Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, who dwelleth in Samaria; behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, whither he is gone down to take possession of it.
1 21,19 And thou shalt speak unto him, saying:
Thus saith the LORD:
Hast thou killed, and also taken possessions? and thou shalt speak unto him, saying:
Thus saith the LORD:
In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine.’
1 21,20 And Ahab said to Elijah:
‘Hast thou found me, O mine enemy?’
And he answered:
‘I have found thee; because thou hast given thyself over to do that which is evil in the sight of the LORD.
1 21,21 Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will utterly sweep thee away, and will cut off from Ahab every
man-child, and him that is shut up and him that is left at large in Israel.
1 21,22 And I will make thy house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasa the son of Ahijah, for the provocation wherewith thou hast provoked Me, and hast made Israel to sin.
1 21,23And of Jezebel also spoke the LORD, saying:
The dogs shall eat Jezebel in the moat of Jezreel.
1 21,24 Him that dieth of Ahab in the city the dogs shall eat; and him that dieth in the field shall the fowls of the air eat.’
1 21,25 But there was none like unto Ahab, who did give himself over to do that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up.
1 21,26 And he did very abominably in following idols, according to all that the Amorites did, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel. {P}
1 21,27 And it came to pass, when Ahab heard those words, that he rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth, and went softy. {P}
1 21,28 And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying:
1 21,29 ‘Seest thou how Ahab humbleth himself before Me? because he humbleth himself before Me, I will not bring the evil in his days; but in his son’s days will I bring the evil upon his house.’
1 22,1 And they continued three years without war between Aram and Israel. {P}
1 22,2 And it came to pass in the third year, that Jehoshaphat the king of Judah came down to the king of Israel. 1 22,3 And the king of Israel said unto his servants:
‘Know ye that Ramoth-gilead is ours, and we are still, and take it not out of the hand of the king of Aram?’
1 22,4 And he said unto Jehoshaphat:
‘Wilt thou go with me to battle to Ramoth-gilead?’
And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel:
‘I am as thou art, my people as thy people, my horses as thy horses.’
1 22,5 And Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel:
‘Inquire, I pray thee, at the word of the LORD today.’
1 22,6 Then the king of Israel gathered the prophets together, about four hundred men, and said unto them: ‘Shall I go against Ramoth-gilead to battle, or shall I forbear?’
And they said:
‘Go up; for the LORD will deliver it into the hand of the king.’
1 22,7 But Jehoshaphat said:
‘Is there not here besides a prophet of the LORD, that we might inquire of him?’
1 22,8 And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat:
‘There is yet one man by whom we may inquire of the LORD, Micaiah the son of Imlah; but I hate him; for he
doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil.’
And Jehoshaphat said:
‘Let not the king say so.’
1 22,9 Then the king of Israel called an officer, and said:
‘Fetch quickly Micaiah the son of Imlah.’
1 22,10 Now the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat each on his throne, arrayed in their robes, in a threshing-floor, at the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them.
1 22,11 And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron, and said:
‘Thus saith the LORD:
With these shalt thou gore the Arameans, until they be consumed.’
1 22,12 And all the prophets prophesied so, saying:
‘Go up to Ramoth-gilead, and prosper; for the LORD will deliver it into the hand of the king.’
1 22,13 And the messenger that went to call Micaiah spoke unto him, saying:
‘Behold now, the words of the prophets declare good unto the king with one mouth, let thy word, I pray thee, be like the word of one of them, and speak thou good.’

Song of Songs
7,4 Thy two breasts are like two fawns that are twins of a gazelle.
7,5 Thy neck is as a tower of ivory; thine eyes as the pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bath-rabbim; thy nose is like the tower of Lebanon which looketh toward Damascus.
7,6 Thy head upon thee is like Carmel, and the hair of thy head like purple; the king is held captive in the tresses thereof.
7,7 How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights!
7,8 This thy stature is like to a palm-tree, and thy breasts to clusters of grapes.
7,9 I said:
‘I will climb up into the palm-tree, I will take hold of the branches thereof; and let thy breasts be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy countenance like apples;
7,10 And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine, that glideth down smoothly for my beloved, moving gently the lips of those that are asleep.’
7,11 I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me. {S}
7,12 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.
7,13 Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see whether the vine hath budded, whether the vine-blossom be opened, and the pomegranates be in flower; there will I give thee my love.
7,14 The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and at our doors are all manner of precious fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.
8,1 Oh that thou wert as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother!
When I should find thee without, I would kiss thee; yea, and none would despise me.
8,2 I would lead thee, and bring thee into my mother’s house, that thou mightest instruct me; I would cause thee to drink of spiced wine, of the juice of my pomegranate.
8,3 His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me.
8,4 ‘I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem:
Why should ye awaken, or stir up love, until it please?’ {S}

The Annunciation of Mark – Chapter 9
18 And wherever he seizeth him, he shaketh and teareth him:
and he gnasheth his teeth, and pineth away.
And I spoke to thy disciples, to cast him out; and they could not.
19 Jesus answered, and said to them:
O incredulous generation!
How long shall I be with you ? how long bear with you ?
Bring him to me.
20 And they brought him to him.
And when the spirit saw him, immediately he shook him; and he fell upon the ground, and wallowed and foamed.
21 And Jesus asked his father, how long a time he had been thus.
He said to him:
Lo, from his childhood.
22 And many times it hath thrown him into the fire, and into the water, to destroy him.
But, if thou canst do any thing, aid me and have compassion on me.
23 Jesus said to him:
If thou canst believe; every thing can be, to him that believeth.
24 And immediately the father of the child cried out, while he wept and said:
I believe; aid thou the defect of my faith.
25 And when Jesus saw that the people were, running and collecting around him, he rebuked the unclean spirit, and said to him:
Thou deaf and unspeaking spirit, I command thee, come out of him; and no more enter him.
26 And the demon cried out greatly, and bruised him, and came out.
And he was as a dead person; so that many would say, he is dead.
27 And Jesus took him by the hand, and raised him up.
28 And when Jesus entered the house, his disciples asked him privately:
Why could not we cast him out ?

The Book of Acts – Chapter 22
2 And when they perceived that he addressed them in Hebrew, they were the more quiet: and he said to them:
3 I am a man who am a Jew; and I was born in Tarsus of Cilicia, but was brought up in this city, at the feet of Gamaliel, and instructed perfectly in the law of our fathers; and I was zealous for God, as ye also all are.
4 And I persecuted this way, even to death; for I bound, and delivered up to prison, [both] men and women.
5 As the high priest is my witness, and likewise all the Elders ; from whom I received letters, that I might go to the brethren in Damascus, and bring those who were there prisoners to Jerusalem, to receive capital punishment.
6 And as I travelled and began to approach Damascus, at noonday, from amidst tranquillity, a great light from heaven burst upon me.
7 And I fell to the earth:
and I heard a voice, which said to me:
Saul, Saul ! why persecutest thou me?
8 And I answered and said:
Who art thou, my Lord?
And he said to me:
I am Jesus the Nazarean, whom thou persecutest.
