The February 14 Bible

Part I. Exodus

34,31 And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him; and Moses spoke to them.

34,32 And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh, and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.

34,33 And when Moses had done speaking with them, he put a veil on his face.

34,34 But when Moses went in before the LORD that He might speak with him, he took the veil off, until he came out; and he came out; and spoke unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded.

34,35 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face sent forth beams; and Moses put the veil back upon his face, until he went in to speak with Him. {S}

35,1 And Moses assembled all the congregation of the children of Israel, and said unto them:

‘These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them.

35,2 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of solemn rest to the LORD; whosoever doeth any work therein shall be put to death.

35,3 Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.’ {P}

35,4 And Moses spoke unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying:

‘This is the thing which the LORD commanded, saying:

35,5 Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD, whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, the LORD’S offering:

gold, and silver, and brass;

35,6 and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair;

35,7 and rams’ skins dyed red, and sealskins, and acacia-wood;

35,8 and oil for the light, and spices for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense;

35,9 and onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate.

35,10 And let every wise-hearted man among you come, and make all that the LORD hath commanded:

35,11 the tabernacle, its tent, and its covering, its clasps, and its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets;

Part II. Judges

16,8 Then the lords of the Philistines brought up to her seven fresh bowstrings which had not been dried, and she bound him with them.

16,9 Now she had liers-in-wait abiding in the inner chamber. And she said unto him:

‘The Philistines are upon thee, Samson.’

And he broke the bowstrings as a string of tow is broken when it toucheth the fire. So his strength was not known.

16,10 And Delilah said unto Samson:

‘Behold, thou hast mocked me, and told me lies; now tell me, I pray thee, wherewith thou mightest be bound.’

16,11 And he said unto her:

‘If they only bind me with new ropes wherewith no work hath been done, then shall I become weak, and be as any other man.’

16,12 So Delilah took new ropes, and bound him therewith, and said unto him:

‘The Philistines are upon thee, Samson.’

And the liers-in-wait were abiding in the inner chamber. And he broke them from off his arms like a thread.

16,13 And Delilah said unto Samson:

‘Hitherto thou hast mocked me, and told me lies; tell me wherewith thou mightest be bound.’

And he said unto her:

‘If thou weavest the seven locks of my head with the web.’

16,14 And she fastened it with the pin, and said unto him:

‘The Philistines are upon thee, Samson.’

And he awoke out of his sleep, and plucked away the pin of the beam, and the web.

16,15 And she said unto him:

‘How canst thou say:

I love thee, when thy heart is not with me? thou hast mocked me these three times, and hast not told me wherein thy great strength lieth.’

16,16 And it came to pass, when she pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, that his soul was vexed unto death.

16,17 And he told her all his heart, and said unto her:

‘There hath not come a razor upon my head; for I have been a Nazirite unto God from my mother’s womb; if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.’

16,18 And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying:

‘Come up this once, for he hath told me all his heart.’

Then the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and brought the money in their hand.

16,19 And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and had the seven locks of his head shaven off; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him.

16,20 And she said:

‘The Philistines are upon thee, Samson.’

And he awoke out of his sleep, and said:

‘I will go out as at other times, and shake myself.’

But he knew not that the LORD was departed from him.

16,21 And the Philistines laid hold on him, and put out his eyes; and they brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison-house.

16,22 Howbeit the hair of his head began to grow again after he was shaven. {P}

16,23 And the lords of the Philistines gathered them together to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice; for they said:

‘Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand.’

16,24 And when the people saw him, they praised their god; for they said:

‘Our god hath delivered into our hand our enemy, and the destroyer of our country, who hath slain many of us.’

16,25 And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said:

‘Call for Samson, that he may make us sport.’

And they called for Samson out of the prison-house; and he made sport before them; and they set him between the pillars.

16,26 And Samson said unto the lad that held him by the hand:

‘Suffer me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house resteth, that I may lean upon them.’

16,27 Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport.

16,28 And Samson called unto the LORD, and said:

‘O Lord LORD, remember me, I pray Thee, and strengthen me, I pray Thee, only this once, O God, that I may be this once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.’

16,29 And Samson took fast hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house rested, and leaned upon them, the one with his right hand, and the other with his left.

16,30 And Samson said:

‘Let me die with the Philistines.’

And he bent with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead that he slew at his death were more than they that he slew in his life.

16,31 Then his brethren and all the house of his father came down, and took him, and brought him up, and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol in the burying-place of Manoah his father. And he judged Israel twenty years. {P}

17,1 Now there was a man of the hill-country of Ephraim, whose name was Micah.

Part III. Psalms

55,11 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof; iniquity also and mischief are in the midst of it.

55,12 Wickedness is in the midst thereof; oppression and guile depart not from her broad place.

55,13 For it was not an enemy that taunted me, then I could have borne it; {N}

neither was it mine adversary that did magnify himself against me, then I would have hid myself from him.

55,14 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my companion, and my familiar friend;

55,15 We took sweet counsel together, in the house of God we walked with the throng.

55,16 May He incite death against them, let them go down alive into the nether-world; for evil is in their dwelling, and within them.

55,17 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.

55,18 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I complain, and moan; and He hath heard my voice.

55,19 He hath redeemed my soul in peace so that none came nigh me; for they were many that strove with me.

55,20 God shall hear, and humble them, even He that is enthroned of old,

Selah {N}

such as have no changes, and fear not God.

55,21 He hath put forth his hands against them that were at peace with him; he hath profaned his covenant.

55,22 Smoother than cream were the speeches of his mouth, but his heart was war; {N}

his words were softer than oil, yet were they keen-edged swords.

55,23 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and He will sustain thee; {N}

He will never suffer the righteous to be moved.

55,24 But Thou, O God, wilt bring them down into the nethermost pit; {N}

men of blood and deceit shall not live out half their days; {N}

but as for me, I will trust in Thee. {P}

56,1 For the Leader; upon Jonath-elem-rehokim. [A Psalm] of David; Michtam; {N}

when the Philistines took him in Gath.

56,2 Be gracious unto me, O God, for man would swallow me up; all the day he fighting oppresseth me.

56,3 They that lie in wait for me would swallow me up all the day; for they are many that fight against me, O Most High,

56,4 In the day that I am afraid, I will put my trust in Thee.

56,5 In God–

I will praise His word– {N}

in God do I trust, I will not be afraid; what can flesh do unto me?

Part IV. The Announcement of Matthew – Chapter 26

21 And as they were eating, he said:

Verily I say to you, That one of you will betray me.

22 And it troubled them much. And they began each one of them to say to him; My Lord is it I ?

23 And he answered and said:

One that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, he will betray me.

24 And the Son of man goeth, as it is written of him:

but woe to that man, by whom the Son of man is betrayed. It would have been better for that man, if he had not been born.

25 Judas the betrayer answered and said:

Rabbi, is it I ?

Jesus said to him:

Thou hast said.

26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake; and gave to his disciples, and said: Take, eat; this is my body.

27 And he took the cup, and offered thanks and gave [it] to them, saying:

Take, drink of this all of you.

28 This is my blood of the new testament, which, in behalf of many, is shed for the remission of sins.

29 But I say to you, that I will henceforth not drink of this product of the vine, until the day in which I shall drink it with you new in the kingdom of God.

30 And they sang praises, and went forth to the mount of Olives.

31 Then said Jesus to them:

Ye will all be offended in me this night; for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of his flock will be dispersed.

32 But after I am arisen, I will go before you into Galilee.

33 Cephas replied, and said to him:

Though all men should be offended in thee, I will never be offended in thee.

34 Jesus said to him:

Verily I say to thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou wilt thrice deny me.

35 Cephas said to him:

If I were to die with thee, I would not deny thee:

and so also said all the disciples.

36 Then came Jesus with them to a place called Gethsemane:

and he said to his disciples,

Sit ye here, while I go and pray.

37 And he took Cephas and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be dejected and sorrowful.

38 And he said to them:

There is anguish in my soul, even unto death. Wait for me here; and watch with me.

39 And retiring a little, he fell on his face, and prayed, and said:

My Father, if it can be so, let this cup pass from me. Yet not as I choose, but as thou.

40 And he came to his disciples, and found them asleep:

and he said to Cephas:

So! could ye not watch with me one hour ?

41 Wake ye, and pray, lest ye fall into temptation. The mind is prepared, but the body is infirm.

make known His doings, JESUSbible3


105,1 O give thanks unto the LORD, call upon His name; make known His doings among the peoples.

Sing unto Him, sing praises unto Him; speak ye of all His marvellous works.

Glory ye in His holy name; let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

105,4 Seek ye the LORD and His strength; seek His face continually.

105,5 Remember His marvellous works that He hath done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth;

105,6 O ye seed of Abraham His servant, ye children of Jacob, His chosen ones.

105,7 He is the LORD our God; His judgments are in all the earth.

105,8 He hath remembered His covenant for ever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations;

105,9 [The covenant] which He made with Abraham, and His oath unto Isaac;

105,10 And He established it unto Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant;

105,11 Saying:
‘Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance.’

105,12 When they were but a few men in number. Yea, very few, and sojourners in it,

105,13 And when they went about from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people,

105,14 He suffered no man to do them wrong, yea, for their sake He reproved kings:

105,15 ‘Touch not Mine anointed ones, and do My prophets no harm.’

105,16 And He called a famine upon the land; He broke the whole staff of bread.

105,17 He sent a man before them; Joseph was sold for a servant;

105,18 His feet they hurt with fetters, his person was laid in iron;

105,19 Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the LORD tested him.

105,20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the peoples, and set him free.

105,21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his possessions;

105,22 To bind his princes at his pleasure, and teach his elders wisdom.

105,23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

105,24 And He increased His people greatly, and made them too mighty for their adversaries.

105,25 He turned their heart to hate His people, to deal craftily with His servants.

105,26 He sent Moses His servant, and Aaron whom He had chosen.

105,27 They wrought among them His manifold signs, and wonders in the land of Ham.

105,28 He sent darkness, and it was dark; and they rebelled not against His word.

105,29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.

105,30 Their land swarmed with frogs, in the chambers of their kings.

105,31 He spoke, and there came swarms of flies, and gnats in all their borders.

105,32 He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.

105,33 He smote their vines also and their fig-trees; and broke the trees of their borders.

105,34 He spoke, and the locust came, and the canker-worm without number,

105,35 And did eat up every herb in their land, and did eat up the fruit of their ground.

105,36 He smote also all the first-born in their land, the first-fruits of all their strength.

105,37 And He brought them forth with silver and gold; and there was none that stumbled among His tribes.

105,38 Egypt was glad when they departed; for the fear of them had fallen upon them.

105,39 He spread a cloud for a screen; and fire to give light in the night.

105,40 They asked, and He brought quails, and gave them in plenty the bread of heaven.

105,41 He opened the rock, and waters gushed out; they ran, a river in the dry places.

105,42 For He remembered His holy word unto Abraham His servant;

105,43 And He brought forth His people with joy, His chosen ones with singing.

105,44 And He gave them the lands of the nations, and they took the labour of the peoples in possession;

105,45 That they might keep His statutes, and observe His laws. {N}
