Psalms

119,161 SHIN.

Princes have persecuted me without a cause; but my heart

standeth in awe of Thy words.
119,162 I rejoice at Thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
119,163 I hate and abhor falsehood; Thy law do I love.
119,164 Seven times a day do I praise Thee, because of Thy righteous
ordinances.
119,165 Great peace have they that love Thy law; and there is no stumbling
for them.
119,166 I have hoped for Thy salvation, O LORD, and have done Thy
commandments.
119,167 My soul hath observed Thy testimonies; and I love them exceedingly.
119,168 I have observed Thy precepts and Thy testimonies; for all my ways
are before Thee. {P}

Numbers15,25 And the priest shall make atonementfor all the congregation of the children of Israel, and they shall be
forgiven; for it was an error, and they have brought their offering, an
offering made by fire unto the LORD, and their sin-offering before the
LORD, for their error.
15,26 And all the congregation of the children of
Israel shall be forgiven, and the stranger that sojourneth among them; for
in respect of all the people it was done in error. {S}
15,27 And if one person sin through error, then he shall offer a she-goat of the first year
for a sin-offering.
15,28 And the priest shall make atonement for the soul
that erreth, when he sinneth through error, before the LORD, to make
atonement for him; and he shall be forgiven,
15,29 both he that is home-born among the children of Israel, and the stranger that sojourneth
among them: ye shall have one law for him that doeth aught in error.
15,30 But the soul that doeth aught with a high hand, whether he be home-born or
a stranger, the same blasphemeth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off
from among his people.
15,31 Because he hath despised the word of the LORD,
and hath broken His commandment; that soul shall utterly be cut off, his
iniquity shall be upon him. {P}
15,32 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a
man gathering sticks upon the sabbath day.
15,33 And they that found him
gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the
congregation.
15,34 And they put him in ward, because it had not been
declared what should be done to him. {S}
15,35 And the LORD said unto
Moses: ‘The man shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall
stone him with stones without the camp.’
15,36 And all the congregation
brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died, as
the LORD commanded Moses. {P}
15,37 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
15,38 ‘Speak unto the children
of Israel, and bid them that they make them throughout their generations
fringes in the corners of their garments, and that they put with the fringe
of each corner a thread of blue.
15,39 And it shall be unto you for a
fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the
LORD, and do them; and that ye go not about after your own heart and your
own eyes, after which ye use to go astray;
15,40 that ye may remember and
do all My commandments, and be holy unto your God.
15,41 I am the LORD your
God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the
LORD your God.’ {P}

Kings
1 22,41 And Jehoshaphat the son of Asa began to reign over Judah in the
fourth year of Ahab king of Israel.
1 22,42 Jehoshaphat was thirty and five
years old when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and five years in
Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi.
1 22,43 And he walked in all the way of Asa his father; he turned not aside from
it, doing that which was right in the eyes of the LORD;
1 22,44 howbeit the high places were not taken away; the people still sacrificed and offered in
the high places.
1 22,45 And Jehoshaphat made peace with the king of
Israel.
1 22,46 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, and his might that
he showed, and how he warred, are they not written in the book of the
chronicles of the kings of Judah?
1 22,47 And the remnant of the sodomites
that remained in the days of his father Asa, he put away out of the land.
1 22,48 And there was no king in Edom: a deputy was king.
1 22,49 Jehoshaphat made ships of Tarshish to go to Ophir for gold; but they went not; for the
ships were broken at Ezion-geber.
1 22,50 Then said Ahaziah the son of Ahab
unto Jehoshaphat: ‘Let my servants go with thy servants in the ships.’ But
Jehoshaphat would not.
1 22,51 And Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and
was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father; and Jehoram
his son reigned in his stead. {S}
1 22,52 Ahaziah the son of Ahab began to
reign over Israel in Samaria in the seventeenth year of Jehoshaphat king of
Judah, and he reigned two years over Israel.
1 22,53 And he did that which
was evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and
in the way of his mother, and in the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat,
wherein he made Israel to sin.
1 22,54 And he served Baal, and worshipped
him, and provoked the LORD, the God of Israel, according to all that his
father had done.
2 1,1 And Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of
Ahab.
2 1,2 And Ahaziah fell down through the lattice in his upper chamber
that was in Samaria, and was sick; and he sent messengers, and said unto
them: ‘Go, inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron whether I shall recover
of this sickness.’ {S}
2 1,3 But an angel of the LORD said to Elijah the
Tishbite: ‘Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and
say unto them: Is it because there is no God in Israel, that ye go to
inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron?
2 1,4 Now therefore thus saith the
LORD: Thou shalt not come down from the bed whither thou art gone up, but
shalt surely die.’ And Elijah departed.
2 1,5 And the messengers returned
unto him, and he said unto them: ‘Why is it that ye are returned?’
2 1,6 And they said unto him: ‘There came up a man to meet us, and said unto us:
Go, return unto the king that sent you, and say unto him: Thus saith the
LORD: Is it because there is no God in Israel, that thou sendest to inquire
of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from the
bed whither thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.’
2 1,7 And he said unto
them: ‘What manner of man was he that came up to meet you, and told you
these words?’
2 1,8 And they answered him: ‘He was a hairy man, and girt
with a girdle of leather about his loins.’ And he said: ‘It is Elijah the
Tishbite.’
2 1,9 Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his
fifty. And he went up to him; and, behold, he sat on the top of the hill.
And he spoke unto him: ‘O man of God, the king hath said: Come down.’
2 1,10 And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty: ‘If I be a man
of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty.’
And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
2 1,11 And again he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty.
And he answered and said unto him: ‘O man of God, thus hath the king said:
Come down quickly.’
2 1,12 And Elijah answered and said unto them: ‘If I be
a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy
fifty.’ And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his
fifty.

Ruth
1,1 And it came to pass in the days when the judges judged, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Beth-lehem in Judah went to sojourn in the field of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons.
1,2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Beth-lehem in Judah. And they came into the field of Moab, and continued there.
1,3 And Elimelech Naomi’s husband died; and she was left, and her two sons.
1,4 And they took them wives of the women of Moab: the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth; and they dwelt there about ten years.
1,5 And Mahlon and Chilion died both of them; and the woman was left of her two children and of her husband. 1,6 Then she arose with her daughters-in-law, that she might return from the field of Moab; for she had heard in the field of Moab how that the LORD had remembered His people in giving them bread.
1,7 And she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah.
1,8 And Naomi said unto her two daughters-in-law: ‘Go, return each of you to her mother’s house; the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me.
1,9 The LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband.’ Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept.
1,10 And they said unto her: ‘Nay, but we will return with thee unto thy people.’
1,11 And Naomi said: ‘Turn back, my daughters; why will ye go with me? have I yet sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands?
1,12 Turn back, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say: I have hope, should I even have an husband to-night, and also bear sons;
1,13 would ye tarry for them till they were grown? would ye shut yourselves off for them and have no husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieveth me much for your sakes, for the hand of the LORD is gone forth against me.’ 1,14 And they lifted up their voice, and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law; but Ruth cleaved unto her.
1,15 And she said: ‘Behold, thy sister-in-law is gone back unto her people, and unto her god; return thou after thy sister-in-law.’

The Annunciation of Mark – Chapter 9
40 Whoever therefore is not against you, is for you.
41 For whoever shall give you to drink a cup of water only, on the ground that ye are Messiah’s [followers], verily I say to you, he will not lose his reward.
42 And whoever shall cause one of these little ones that believe in me to stumble, it were better for him, if a millstone were put to his neck, and he cast into the sea.
43 And if thy hand make thee offend, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than, having two hands, to go into hell;
44 where their worm dieth not, and their fire is not extinguished.
45 And if thy foot make thee offend, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life lamed, than, having two feet, to fall into hell;
46 where their worm dieth not, and their fire is not extinguished.
47 And if thy eye make thee offend, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter with one eye into the kingdom of God, than, having two eyes, to fall into the hell of fire;
48 where their worm dieth not, and their fire is not extinguished.
49 For every thing will be salted with fire; and every sacrifice will be salted with salt.
50 Salt is a good thing: but if the salt become insipid, with what will it be salted ? Let there be salt in you: and be ye in peace, one with another.

The Book of Acts – Chapter 22
15 And thou shalt be a witness for him before all men, concerning all that thou hast seen and heard.
16 And now, why delayest thou? Arise, be baptized, and be cleansed from thy sins, while thou invokest his name.
17 And I returned and came hither to Jerusalem. And I prayed in the temple.
18 And I saw him in a vision, when he said to me: Make haste, and get thee out of Jerusalem; for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.
19 And I said: My Lord, they well know that I have delivered up to prison, and have scourged in all synagogues, those who believed in thee.
20 And when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing with them, and performed the pleasure of his slayers, and took charge of the garments of those that stoned him.
