Psalms
141,1 A Psalm of David. {N}
LORD, I have called Thee;
make haste unto me;
give ear unto my voice, when I call unto Thee.
141,2 Let my prayer be set forth as incense before Thee, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
141,3 Set a guard, O LORD, to my mouth;
keep watch at the door of my lips.
141,4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, {N}
to be occupied in deeds of wickedness {N}
with men that work iniquity; {N}
and let me not eat of their dainties.
141,5 Let the righteous smite me in kindness, and correct me; {N}
oil so choice let not my head refuse; {N}
for still is my prayer because of their wickedness.
141,6 Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock;
and they shall hear my words, that they are sweet.
141,7 As when one cleaveth and breaketh up the earth, our bones are scattered at the grave’s mouth.
141,8 For mine eyes are unto Thee, O GOD the Lord;
in Thee have I taken refuge, O pour not out my soul.
141,9 Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, and from the gins of the workers of iniquity.
141,10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst I withal escape. {P}

Genesis10,23 And the sons of Aram:
Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
10,24 And Arpachshad begot Shelah;
and Shelah begot Eber.
10,25 And unto Eber were born two sons;
the name of the one was Peleg;
for in his days was the earth divided;
and his brother’s name was Joktan.
10,26 And Joktan begot Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah;
10,27 and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah;
10,28 and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba;
10,29 and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab;
all these were the sons of Joktan.
10,30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest toward Sephar, unto the mountain of the east.
10,31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
10,32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations;
and of these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood. {P}
11,1 And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech.
11,2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar;
and they dwelt there.
11,3 And they said one to another:
‘Come, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly.’
And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.
11,4 And they said:
‘Come, let us build us a city, and a tower, with its top in heaven, and let us make us a name;
lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.’
11,5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
11,6 And the LORD said:
‘Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language;
and this is what they begin to do;
and now nothing will be withholden from them, which they purpose to do.
11,7 Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.’

Kings
2 20,20 Now the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and all his might, and how he made the pool, and the conduit, and brought water into the city, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
2 20,21 And Hezekiah slept with his fathers;
and Manasseh his son reigned in his stead. {P}2 21,1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign;
and he reigned five and fifty years in Jerusalem;
and his mother’s name was Hephzi-bah.
2 21,2 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, after the abominations of the nations, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
2 21,3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made an Asherah, as did Ahab king of Israel, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.
2 21,4 And he built altars in the house of the LORD, whereof the LORD said:
‘In Jerusalem will I put My name.’
2 21,5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD.
2 21,6 And he made his son to pass through the fire, and practised soothsaying, and used enchantments, and appointed them that divined by a ghost or a familiar spirit:
he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him.
2 21,7 And he set the graven image of Asherah, that he had made, in the house of which the LORD said to David and to Solomon his son:
‘In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, will I put My name for ever;
2 21,8 neither will I cause the feet of Israel to wander any more out of the land which I gave their fathers;
if only they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that My servant Moses commanded them.’
2 21,9 But they hearkened not;
and Manasseh seduced them to do that which is evil more than did the nations, whom the LORD destroyed before the children of Israel.
2 21,10 And the LORD spoke by His servants the prophets, saying:
2 21,11 ‘Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, that were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols; {S}
2 21,12 therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel: Behold, I bring such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle.
2 21,13 And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab;
and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down.
2 21,14 And I will cast off the remnant of Mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies;
and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies;
2 21,15 because they have done that which is evil in My sight, and have provoked Me, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even unto this day.’
2 21,16 Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of the LORD.
2 21,17 Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and all that he did, and his sin that he sinned, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
2 21,18 And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza;
and Amon his son reigned in his stead. {P}
2 21,19 Amon was twenty and two years old when he began to reign; and he reigned two years in Jerusalem;
and his mother’s name was Meshullemeth the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.
2 21,20 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as did Manasseh his father.
2 21,21 And he walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshipped them.
2 21,22 And he forsook the LORD, the God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of the LORD.
2 21,23 And the servants of Amon conspired against him, and put the king to death in his own house.
2 21,24 But the people of the land slew all them that had conspired against king Amon;
and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his stead.

Ecclesiastes
6,1 There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is heavy upon men:
6,2 a man to whom God giveth riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it;
this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
6,3 If a man beget a hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years are many, but his soul have not enough of good, and moreover he have no burial;
I say, that an untimely birth is better than he;
6,4 for it cometh in vanity, and departeth in darkness, and the name thereof is covered with darkness;
6,5 moreover it hath not seen the sun nor known it;
this hath gratification rather than the other;
6,6 yea, though he live a thousand years twice told, and enjoy no good;
do not all go to one place?
6,7 All the labour of man is for his mouth, and yet the appetite is not filled.
6,8 For what advantage hath the wise more than the fool?
or the poor man that hath understanding, in walking before the living?
6,9 Better is the seeing of the eyes than the wandering of the desire;
this also is vanity and a striving after wind.
6,10 Whatsoever cometh into being, the name thereof was given long ago, and it is foreknown what man is;
neither can he contend with Him that is mightier than he.
6,11 Seeing there are many words that increase vanity, what is man the better?
6,12 For who knoweth what is good for man in his life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow?
for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?
7,1 A good name is better than precious oil; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.
7,2 It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting;
for that is the end of all men, and the living will lay it to his heart.
7,3 Vexation is better than laughter;
for by the sadness of the countenance the heart may be gladdened.
