Psalms Chapter 138 תְּהִלִּים
א לְדָוִד: אוֹדְךָ בְכָל-לִבִּי; נֶגֶד אֱלֹהִים אֲזַמְּרֶךָּ.
1 [A Psalm] of David.
I will give Thee thanks with my whole heart, in the presence of the mighty will I sing praises unto Thee.
ב אֶשְׁתַּחֲוֶה אֶל-הֵיכַל קָדְשְׁךָ, וְאוֹדֶה אֶת-שְׁמֶךָ–
עַל-חַסְדְּךָ וְעַל-אֲמִתֶּךָ:
כִּי-הִגְדַּלְתָּ עַל-כָּל-שִׁמְךָ, אִמְרָתֶךָ.
2 I will bow down toward Thy holy temple, and give thanks unto Thy name {N}
because Thy loyalty and because Thy truth; {N}
because Thou hast magnified Thy word above all Thy name.
ג בְּיוֹם קָרָאתִי, וַתַּעֲנֵנִי; תַּרְהִבֵנִי בְנַפְשִׁי עֹז.
3 In the day that I called, Thou didst answer me;
Thou didst encourage me in my soul with strength.
ד יוֹדוּךָ יְהוָה, כָּל-מַלְכֵי-אָרֶץ: כִּי שָׁמְעוּ, אִמְרֵי-פִיךָ.
4 All the kings of the earth shall give Thee thanks, O Eternal One, because they have heard the words of Thy mouth.
ה וְיָשִׁירוּ, בְּדַרְכֵי יְהוָה: כִּי-גָדוֹל, כְּבוֹד יְהוָה.
5 Yea, they shall sing of the ways of the Eternal One;
because great is the glory of the Eternal One.
ו כִּי-רָם יְהוָה, וְשָׁפָל יִרְאֶה; וְגָבֹהַּ, מִמֶּרְחָק יְיֵדָע.
6 For though the Eternal One be high, yet regardeth He the lowly, and the haughty He knoweth from afar.
ז אִם-אֵלֵךְ, בְּקֶרֶב צָרָה– תְּחַיֵּנִי:
עַל אַף אֹיְבַי, תִּשְׁלַח יָדֶךָ; וְתוֹשִׁיעֵנִי יְמִינֶךָ.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, Thou quickenest me; {N}
Thou stretchest forth Thy hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and Thy right hand doth save me.
ח יְהוָה, יִגְמֹר בַּעֲדִי: יְהוָה, חַסְדְּךָ לְעוֹלָם; מַעֲשֵׂי יָדֶיךָ אַל-תֶּרֶף.
8 The Eternal One will accomplish that which concerneth me;
Thy loyalty, O Eternal One, endureth for ever;
forsake not the work of Thine own hands. {P}

ו תִּדְבַּק-לְשׁוֹנִי, לְחִכִּי– אִם-לֹא אֶזְכְּרֵכִי:

6 Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I remember thee not; {N}
if I set not Jerusalem above my chiefest joy.
ז זְכֹר יְהוָה, לִבְנֵי אֱדוֹם– אֵת, יוֹם יְרוּשָׁלִָם:
הָאֹמְרִים, עָרוּ עָרוּ– עַד, הַיְסוֹד בָּהּ.
7 Remember, O Eternal One, against the sons of Edom the day of Jerusalem; {N}
who said:
‘Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.’
ח בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה:
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ– אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתְּ לָנוּ.
8 O daughter of Babylon, that art to be destroyed; {N}
happy shall he be, that repayeth thee as thou hast served us.
ט אַשְׁרֵי, שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ– אֶל-הַסָּלַע.
9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the rock. {P}

“The Mighty One is my loyalty.” Psalms 59:18

The Jan 15 Bible/Matthew

Matthew 17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

“The Mighty One is my loyalty.” Psalms 59:18

The Jan 15 Bible/Proverbs

Proverbs 8,15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
8,16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
8,17 I love them that love me, and those that seek me earnestly shall find me.
8,18 Riches and honour are with me; yea, enduring riches and righteousness.
8,19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my produce than choice silver.
8,20 I walk in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of justice;
8,21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance, and that I may fill their treasuries.
8,22 The Eternal One made me as the beginning of His way, the first of His works of old.
8,23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
8,24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
8,25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth;
8,26 While as yet He had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the beginning of the dust of the world.
8,27 When He established the heavens, I was there; when He set a circle upon the face of the deep,
8,28 When He made firm the skies above, when the fountains of the deep showed their might,
8,29 When He gave to the sea His decree, that the waters should not transgress His commandment, when He appointed the foundations of the earth;
8,30 Then I was by Him, as a nursling; and I was daily all delight, playing always before Him,
8,31 Playing in His habitable earth, and my delights are with the sons of men. {P}

The Jan 15 Bible/Joshua

Joshua 15,11 And the border went out unto the side of Ekron northward; and the border was drawn to Shikkeron, and passed along to mount Baalah, and went out at Jabneel; and the goings out of the border were at the sea.
15,12 And as for the west border, the Great Sea was the border thereof. This is the border of the children of Judah round about according to their families.
15,13 And unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a portion among the children of Judah, according to the commandment of the Eternal One to Joshua, even Kiriath-arba, which Arba was the father of Anak–the same is Hebron.
15,14 And Caleb drove out thence the three sons of Anak, Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak.
15,15 And he went up thence against the inhabitants of Debir–now the name of Debir beforetime was Kiriath-sepher.
15,16 And Caleb said: ‘He that smiteth Kiriath-sepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife.’
15,17 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it; and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.
15,18 And it came to pass, when she came unto him, that she persuaded him to ask of her father a field; and she alighted from off her ass; and Caleb said unto her: ‘What wouldest thou?’
15,19 And she said: ‘Give me a blessing; for that thou hast set me in the Southland, give me therefore springs of water.’ And he gave her the Upper Springs and the Nether Springs. {P}

15,20 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families.
15,21 And the cities at the uttermost part of the tribe of the children of Judah toward the border of Edom in the South were Kabzeel, and Eder, and Jagur;
15,22 and Kinah, and Dimonah, and Adadah;
15,23 and Kedesh, and Hazor, and Ithnan;
15,24 Ziph, and Telem, and Bealoth;
15,25 and Hazor, and Hadattah, and Kerioth, and Hezron–the same is Hazor;
15,26 Amam, and Shema, and Moladah;
15,27 and Hazar-gaddah, and Heshmon, and Beth-pelet;
15,28 and Hazar-shual, and Beer-sheba, and Biziothiah;
15,29 Baalah, and Iim, and Ezem;
15,30 and Eltolad, and Chesil, and Hormah;
15,31 and Ziklag, and Madmannah, and Sansannah;
15,32 and Lebaoth, and Shilhim, and Ain, and Rimmon; all the cities are twenty and nine, with their villages. {S}
15,33 In the Lowland: Eshtaol, and Zorah, and Ashnah;
15,34 and Zanoah, and En-gannim, Tappuah, and Enam;
15,35 Jarmuth, and Adullam, Socoh, and Azekah;
15,36 and Shaaraim, and Adithaim, and Gederah, with Gederothaim; fourteen cities with their villages. {S}

The Jan 15 Bible/Exodus

Exodus 27,21 In the tent of meeting, without the veil which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall set it in order, to burn from evening to morning before the Eternal One; it shall be a statute for ever throughout their generations on the behalf of the sons of Israel. {S}
28,1 And bring thou near unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the sons of Israel, that they may minister unto Me in the priest’s office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron’s sons.
28,2 And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, for splendour and for beauty.
28,3 And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise-hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they make Aaron’s garments to sanctify him, that he may minister unto Me in the priest’s office. 28,4 And these are the garments which they shall make: a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a tunic of chequer work, a mitre, and a girdle; and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto Me in the priest’s office.
28,5 And they shall take the gold, and the blue, and the purple, and the scarlet, and the fine linen. {P}

28,6 And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, and purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen, the work of the skilful workman.
28,7 It shall have two shoulder-pieces joined to the two ends thereof, that it may be joined together. 28,8 And the skilfully woven band, which is upon it, wherewith to gird it on, shall be like the work thereof and of the same piece: of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
28,9 And thou shalt take two onyx stones, and grave on them the names of the sons of Israel: 28,10 six of their names on the one stone, and the names of the six that remain on the other stone, according to their birth. 28,11 With the work of an engraver in stone, like the engravings of a signet, shalt thou engrave the two stones, according to the names of the sons of Israel; thou shalt make them to be inclosed in settings of gold. 28,12 And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, to be stones of memorial for the sons of Israel; and Aaron shall bear their names before the Eternal One upon his two shoulders for a memorial. {S} 28,13 And thou shalt make settings of gold; 28,14 and two chains of pure gold; of plaited thread shalt thou make them, of wreathen work; and thou shalt put the wreathen chains on the settings. {S} 28,15 And thou shalt make a breastplate of judgment, the work of the skilful workman; like the work of the ephod thou shalt make it: of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, shalt thou make it. 28,16 Four-square it shall be and double: a span shall be the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof.
