Psalms
148,1 Hallelujah. {N}
Praise ye the LORD from the heavens;
praise Him in the heights.
148,2 Praise ye Him, all His angels;
praise ye Him, all His hosts.
148,3 Praise ye Him, sun and moon;
praise Him, all ye stars of light.
148,4 Praise Him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that are above the heavens.
148,5 Let them praise the name of the LORD;
for He commanded, and they were created.
148,6 He hath also established them for ever and ever;
He hath made a decree which shall not be transgressed.
148,7 Praise the LORD from the earth, ye sea-monsters, and all deeps;
148,8 Fire and hail, snow and vapour, stormy wind, fulfilling His word;
148,9 Mountains and all hills, fruitful trees and all cedars;
148,10 Beasts and all cattle, creeping things and winged fowl;
148,11 Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all judges of the earth;
148,12 Both young men and maidens, old men and children;
148,13 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for His name alone is exalted; {N}
His glory is above the earth and heaven.
148,14 And He hath lifted up a horn for His people, a praise for all His saints, {N}
even for the children of Israel, a people near unto Him. {N}
Hallelujah.

Genesis16,14 Wherefore the well was called
‘Beer-lahai-roi;
behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.
16,15 And Hagar bore Abram a son;
and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael.
16,16 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram. {S}
17,1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him:
‘I am God Almighty; walk before Me, and be thou wholehearted.
17,2 And I will make My covenant between Me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.’
17,3 And Abram fell on his face; and God talked with him, saying:
17,4 ‘As for Me, behold, My covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be the father of a multitude of nations.
17,5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for the father of a multitude of nations have I made thee.
17,6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
17,7 And I will establish My covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee and to thy seed after thee.
17,8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.’
17,9 And God said unto Abraham:
‘And as for thee, thou shalt keep My covenant, thou, and thy seed after thee throughout their generations.
17,10 This is My covenant, which ye shall keep, between Me and you and thy seed after thee:
every male among you shall be circumcised.
17,11 And ye shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin;
and it shall be a token of a covenant betwixt Me and you.
17,12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every male throughout your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any foreigner, that is not of thy seed.
17,13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised;
and My covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
17,14 And the uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that soul shall be cut off from his people;
he hath broken My covenant.’ {S}
17,15 And God said unto Abraham:
‘As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.
17,16 And I will bless her, and moreover I will give thee a son of her;
yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations;
kings of peoples shall be of her.’
17,17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart:
‘Shall a child be born unto him that is a hundred years old?
and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?’
17,18 And Abraham said unto God:
‘Oh that Ishmael might live before Thee!’
17,19 And God said:
‘Nay, but Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son;
and thou shalt call his name Isaac;
and I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his seed after him.
17,20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee;
behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly;
twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.
17,21 But My covenant will I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.’
17,22 And He left off talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.
17,23 And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham’s house, and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him.
17,24 And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
17,25 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
17,26 In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son.
17,27 And all the men of his house, those born in the house, and those bought with money of a foreigner, were circumcised with him. {P}

Isaiah
6/18
4,1 And seven women shall take hold of one man in that day, saying:
‘We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name;
take thou away our reproach.’ {S}
4,2 In that day shall the growth of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.
4,3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written unto life in Jerusalem;
4,4 when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof, by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of destruction.
4,5 And the LORD will create over the whole habitation of mount Zion, and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy.
4,6 And there shall be a pavilion for a shadow in the day-time from the heat, and for a refuge and for a covert from storm and from rain. {P}
5,1 Let me sing of my well-beloved, a song of my beloved touching his vineyard.
My well-beloved had a vineyard in a very fruitful hill;
5,2 And he digged it, and cleared it of stones, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also hewed out a vat therein;
and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.
5,3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.
5,4 What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it?
Wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?
5,5 And now come, I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard:
I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up;
I will break down the fence thereof, and it shall be trodden down;
5,6 And I will lay it waste:
it shall not be pruned nor hoed, but there shall come up briers and thorns;
I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
5,7 For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah the plant of His delight;
and He looked for justice, but behold violence;
for righteousness, but behold a cry. {P}
5,8 Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no room, and ye be made to dwell alone in the midst of the land!
5,9 In mine ears said the LORD of hosts:
of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.
5,10 For ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of a homer shall yield an ephah. {S}
5,11 Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink;
that tarry late into the night, till wine inflame them!
5,12 And the harp and the psaltery, the tabret and the pipe, and wine, are in their feasts;
but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither have they considered the operation of His hands.
5,13 Therefore My people are gone into captivity, for want of knowledge;
and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude are parched with thirst.
5,14 Therefore the nether-world hath enlarged her desire, and opened her mouth without measure;
and down goeth their glory, and their tumult, and their uproar, and he that rejoiceth among them.
5,15 And man is bowed down, and man is humbled, and the eyes of the lofty are humbled;
5,16 But the LORD of hosts is exalted through justice, and God the Holy One is sanctified through righteousness.
5,17 Then shall the lambs feed as in their pasture, and the waste places of the fat ones shall wanderers eat. {S}
5,18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope,
5,19 That say:
‘Let Him make speed, let Him hasten His work, that we may see it;
and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!’ {P}
5,20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil;
that change darkness into light, and light into darkness;
that change bitter into sweet, and sweet into bitter! {S}

Ecclesiastes
12,1 Remember then thy Creator in the days of thy youth, before the evil days come, and the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say:
‘I have no pleasure in them’;
12,2 Before the sun, and the light, and the moon, and the stars, are darkened, and the clouds return after the rain;
12,3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out shall be darkened in the windows,
12,4 And the doors shall be shut in the street, when the sound of the grinding is low;
and one shall start up at the voice of a bird, and all the daughters of music shall be brought low;
12,5 Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and terrors shall be in the way;
and the almond-tree shall blossom, and the grasshopper shall drag itself along, and the caperberry shall fail;
because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets;
12,6 Before the silver cord is snapped asunder, and the golden bowl is shattered, and the pitcher is broken at the fountain, and the wheel falleth shattered, into the pit;
12,7 And the dust returneth to the earth as it was, and the spirit returneth unto God who gave it.
12,8 Vanity of vanities, saith Koheleth; all is vanity.
12,9 And besides that Koheleth was wise, he also taught the people knowledge;
yea, he pondered, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.
12,10 Koheleth sought to find out words of delight, and that which was written uprightly, even words of truth.
12,11 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails well fastened are those that are composed in collections;
they are given from one shepherd.
12,12 And furthermore, my son, be admonished:
of making many books there is no end;
and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
12,13 The end of the matter, all having been heard:
fear God, and keep His commandments;
for this is the whole man.
12,14 For God shall bring every work into the judgment concerning every hidden thing, whether it be good or whether it be evil. {P}
