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}

The February 12 Bible

Part I. Exodus

33,22 And it shall come to pass, while My glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a cleft of the rock, and will cover thee with My hand until I have passed by.

33,23 And I will take away My hand, and thou shalt see My back; but My face shall not be seen.’ {P}

34,1 And the LORD said unto Moses:

‘Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first; and I will write upon the tables the words that were on the first tables, which thou didst break.

34,2 And be ready by the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to Me on the top of the mount.

34,3 And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount.’

34,4 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand two tables of stone.

34,5 And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.

34,6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed:

‘The LORD, the LORD, God, merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth;

34,7 keeping mercy unto the thousandth generation, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin; and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and unto the fourth generation.’

34,8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

34,9 And he said:

‘If now I have found grace in Thy sight, O Lord, let the Lord, I pray Thee, go in the midst of us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for Thine inheritance.’

34,10 And He said:

‘Behold, I make a covenant; before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been wrought in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD that I am about to do with thee, that it is tremendous.

34,11 Observe thou that which I am commanding thee this day; behold, I am driving out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.

34,12 Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest they be for a snare in the midst of thee.

34,13 But ye shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars, and ye shall cut down their Asherim.

34,14 For thou shalt bow down to no other god; for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God;

Part II. Judges

13,23 But his wife said unto him:

‘If the LORD were pleased to kill us, He would not have received a burnt-offering and a meal-offering at our hand, neither would He have shown us all these things, nor would at this time have told such things as these.’

13,24 And the woman bore a son, and called his name Samson; and the child grew, and the LORD blessed him.

13,25 And the spirit of the LORD began to move him in Mahaneh-dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol. {P}

14,1 And Samson went down to Timnah, and saw a woman in Timnah of the daughters of the Philistines.

14,2 And he came up, and told his father and his mother, and said:

‘I have seen a woman in Timnah of the daughters of the Philistines; now therefore get her for me to wife.’

14,3 Then his father and his mother said unto him:

‘Is there never a woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines?’

And Samson said unto his father:

‘Get her for me; for she pleaseth me well.’

14,4 But his father and his mother knew not that it was of the LORD; for he sought an occasion against the Philistines. Now at that time the Philistines had rule over Israel.

14,5 Then went Samson down, and his father and his mother, to Timnah, and came to the vineyards of Timnah; and, behold, a young lion roared against him.

14,6 And the spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he rent him as one would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand; but he told not his father or his mother what he had done.

14,7 And he went down, and talked with the woman; and she pleased Samson well.

14,8 And after a while he returned to take her, and he turned aside to see the carcass of the lion; and, behold, there was a swarm of bees in the body of the lion, and honey.

14,9 And he scraped it out into his hands, and went on, eating as he went, and he came to his father and mother, and gave unto them, and they did eat; but he told them not that he had scraped the honey out of the body of the lion.

14,10 And his father went down unto the woman; and Samson made there a feast; for so used the young men to do.

14,11 And it came to pass, when they saw him, that they brought thirty companions to be with him.

14,12 And Samson said unto them:

‘Let me now put forth a riddle unto you; if ye can declare it me within the seven days of the feast, and find it out, then I will give you thirty linen garments and thirty changes of raiment;

14,13 but if ye cannot declare it me, then shall ye give me thirty linen garments and thirty changes of raiment.’ And they said unto him:

‘Put forth thy riddle, that we may hear it.’

14,14 And he said unto them:

Out of the eater came forth food, and out of the strong came forth sweetness. And they could not in three days declare the riddle.

14,15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they said unto Samson’s wife:

‘Entice thy husband, that he may declare unto us the riddle, lest we burn thee and thy father’s house with fire; have ye called us hither to impoverish us?’

14,16 And Samson’s wife wept before him, and said:

‘Thou dost but hate me, and lovest me not; thou hast put forth a riddle unto the children of my people, and wilt thou not tell it me?’

And he said unto her:

‘Behold, I have not told it my father nor my mother, and shall I tell thee?’

14,17 And she wept before him the seven days, while their feast lasted; and it came to pass on the seventh day, that he told her, because she pressed him sore; and she told the riddle to the children of her people.

14,18 And the men of the city said unto him on the seventh day before the sun went down:

What is sweeter than honey? and what is stronger than a lion? And he said unto them: If ye had not plowed with my heifer, ye had not found out my riddle.

14,19 And the spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he went down to Ashkelon, and smote thirty men of them, and took their spoil, and gave the changes of raiment unto them that declared the riddle. And his anger was kindled, and he went up to his father’s house.

14,20 But Samson’s wife was given to his companion, whom he had had for his friend. {P}

15,1 But it came to pass after a while, in the time of wheat harvest, that Samson visited his wife with a kid; and he said:

‘I will go in to my wife into the chamber.’

But her father would not suffer him to go in.

15,2 And her father said:

‘I verily thought that thou hadst utterly hated her; therefore I gave her to thy companion; is not her younger sister fairer than she? take her, I pray thee, instead of her.’

51,21 Then wilt Thou delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, in burnt-offering and whole offering; {N}

52,1 For the Leader. Maschil of David;

52,2 when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, {N}

and said unto him:

‘David is come to the house of Ahimelech.’

52,3 Why boastest thou thyself of evil, O mighty man? The mercy of God endureth continually.

52,4 Thy tongue deviseth destruction; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

52,5 Thou lovest evil more than good; falsehood rather than speaking righteousness.


52,6 Thou lovest all devouring words, the deceitful tongue.

52,7 God will likewise break thee for ever, {N}

He will take thee up, and pluck thee out of thy tent, and root thee out of the land of the living.


52,8 The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:

52,9 ‘Lo, this is the man that made not God his stronghold; {N}

but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.’

52,10 But as for me, I am like a leafy olive-tree in the house of God; {N}

I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

52,11 I will give Thee thanks for ever, because Thou hast done it; and I will wait for Thy name, for it is good, in the presence of Thy saints. {P}

53,1 For the Leader; upon Mahalath. Maschil of David.

53,2 The fool hath said in his heart:

‘There is no God’; {N}

they have dealt corruptly, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none that doeth good.

53,3 God looked forth from heaven upon the children of men, {N}

to see if there were any man of understanding, that did seek after God.

53,4 Every one of them is unclean, they are together become impure; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

53,5 ‘Shall not the workers of iniquity know it, who eat up My people as they eat bread, and call not upon God?’

53,6 There are they in great fear, where no fear was; {N}

for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee; Thou hast put them to shame, because God hath rejected them.

53,7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! {N}

When God turneth the captivity of His people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad. {P}

Part IV. Matthew 25

25 and I was afraid, and I went and hid thy talent in the earth. Behold, thou hast what is thine.

26 His lord answered, and said to him:

Wicked and slothful servant ! Thou knewest me, that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not scattered!

27 Thou oughtest to have cast my money into the exchange; and I might have come and demanded my property with its interest.

28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it to him that hath ten talents.

29 For, to him that hath, shall be given, and he shall have more; but from him that hath not, even what he hath shall be taken away.

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness:

there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

31 And when the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all his holy angels with him, then will he sit upon the throne of his glory.

32 And before him will be gathered all nations; and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd severeth the sheep from the goats.

33 And he will place the sheep on his right hand, and the goats on his left.

34 Then will the king say to those on his right hand:

Come, ye blessed of my Father; inherit the kingdom that was prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

35 For I was hungry, and ye gave me food; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took me home;

36 I was naked, and ye clothed me; I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came to me.

37 Then will the righteous say to him:

Our Lord, when saw we thee hungry, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink ?

38 And when saw we thee a stranger, and took thee home? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 And when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came to thee ?

40 And the king will answer, and say to them:

Verily I Say to you, That inasmuch as ye did so to one of these my little brothers, ye did so to me.

41 Then will he say also to them on his left hand:

Go from me, ye accursed, into everlasting fire, which was prepared for the Calumniator and his angels,

42 For I was hungry, and ye gave me no food; and I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink;

43 and I was a stranger, and ye took me not home; and I was naked, and ye clothed me not; and I was sick and in prison, and ye did not visit me.

44 Then will they also answer and say:

Our Lord, when saw we thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee ?

45 Then will he answer, and say to them:

Verily I say to you, That in as much as ye did not so to one of these little ones, ye did not so to me.

103,5 Who satisfieth thine old age with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle.

103,6 The LORD executeth righteousness, and acts of justice for all that are oppressed.

103,7 He made known His ways unto Moses, His doings unto the children of Israel.

103,8 The LORD is full of compassion and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

103,9 He will not always contend; neither will He keep His anger for ever.

103,10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor requited us according to our iniquities.

103,11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear Him.

103,12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.

103,13 Like as a father hath compassion upon his children, so hath the LORD compassion upon them that fear Him.

103,14 For He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust.

103,15 As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

103,16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof knoweth it no more.

103,17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him, {N}
and His righteousness unto children’s children;

103,18 To such as keep His covenant, and to those that remember His precepts to do them.

103,19 The LORD hath established His throne in the heavens; and His kingdom ruleth over all.

103,20 Bless the LORD, ye angels of His, {N}
ye mighty in strength, that fulfil His word, hearkening unto the voice of His word.

103,21 Bless the LORD, all ye His hosts; ye ministers of His, that do His pleasure.

103,22 Bless the LORD, all ye His works, in all places of His dominion; {N}
bless the LORD, O my soul. {P}

Psalm 2-13-16 Shabbat Shalom

104,1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. {N}
O LORD my God, Thou art very great; Thou art clothed with glory and majesty.

104,2 Who coverest Thyself with light as with a garment, who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain;

104,3 Who layest the beams of Thine upper chambers in the waters, {N}
who makest the clouds Thy chariot, who walkest upon the wings of the wind;

104,4 Who makest winds Thy messengers, the flaming fire Thy ministers.

104,5 Who didst establish the earth upon its foundations, that it should not be moved for ever and ever;

104,6 Thou didst cover it with the deep as with a vesture; the waters stood above the mountains.

104,7 At Thy rebuke they fled, at the voice of Thy thunder they hasted away–

104,8 The mountains rose, the valleys sank down–
unto the place which Thou hadst founded for them;

104,9 Thou didst set a bound which they should not pass over, that they might not return to cover the earth.

104,10 Who sendest forth springs into the valleys; they run between the mountains;

104,11 They give drink to every beast of the field, the wild asses quench their thirst.

104,12 Beside them dwell the fowl of the heaven, from among the branches they sing.

104,13 Who waterest the mountains from Thine upper chambers; the earth is full of the fruit of Thy works.

104,14 Who causeth the grass to spring up for the cattle, and herb for the service of man; {N}
to bring forth bread out of the earth,

104,15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, making the face brighter than oil, {N}
and bread that stayeth man’s heart.

104,16 The trees of the LORD have their fill, the cedars of Lebanon, which He hath planted;

104,17 Wherein the birds make their nests; as for the stork, the fir-trees are her house.

104,18 The high mountains are for the wild goats; the rocks are a refuge for the conies.

104,19 Who appointedst the moon for seasons; the sun knoweth his going down.

104,20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night, wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.

104,21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their food from God.

104,22 The sun ariseth, they slink away, and couch in their dens.

104,23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

104,24 How manifold are Thy works, O LORD! In wisdom hast Thou made them all; {N}
the earth is full of Thy creatures.

104,25 Yonder sea, great and wide, {N}
therein are creeping things innumerable, living creatures, both small and great.

104,26 There go the ships; there is leviathan, whom Thou hast formed to sport therein.

104,27 All of them wait for Thee, that Thou mayest give them their food in due season.

104,28 Thou givest it unto them, they gather it; Thou openest Thy hand, they are satisfied with good.

104,29 Thou hidest Thy face, they vanish; {N}
Thou withdrawest their breath, they perish, and return to their dust.

104,30 Thou sendest forth Thy spirit, they are created; and Thou renewest the face of the earth.

104,31 May the glory of the LORD endure for ever; let the LORD rejoice in His works!

104,32 Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.

104,33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have any being.

104,34 Let my musing be sweet unto Him; as for me, I will rejoice in the LORD.

104,35 Let sinners cease out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. {N}
Bless the LORD, O my soul. {N}
