13207

Then the LORD rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven,

13208

Then Zebah and Zalmunna said, "Rise up yourself, and fall on us; for as the man, so is his strength." So Gideon arose and killed Zebah and Zalmunna, and took the crescent ornaments which were on their camels' necks.

13209

Then they came to the valley of Eshcol and from there cut down a branch with a single cluster of grapes; and they carried it on a pole between two men, with some of the pomegranates and the figs.

13214

the sons of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone. So Moses would replace the veil over his face until he went in to speak with Him.

13215

Then the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "Take for yourselves handfuls of soot from a kiln, and let Moses throw it toward the sky in the sight of Pharaoh.

13216

the BLIND RECEIVE SIGHT and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the POOR HAVE THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM.

13217

I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

13218

Now the LORD spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,

13219

Then Moses said, "Behold, I am going out from you, and I shall make supplication to the LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people tomorrow; only do not let Pharaoh deal deceitfully again in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the LORD."

13220

The LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him, "Now lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward;

13221

"For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time."

13222

And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them.

13223

So they removed the stone Then Jesus raised His eyes, and said, "Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.

13224

It was the same Aaron and Moses to whom the LORD said, "Bring out the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their hosts."

13225

to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life And who is adequate for these things?

13226

Therefore they spent a long time there speaking boldly with reliance upon the Lord, who was testifying to the word of His grace, granting that signs and wonders be done by their hands.

13229

Greet Andronicus and Junias, my kinsmen and my fellow prisoners, who are outstanding among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.

13230

And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel's hand.

13231

"Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?"

13232

For I long to see you so that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, that you may be established;

13233

But we, going ahead to the ship, set sail for Assos, intending from there to take Paul on board; for so he had arranged it, intending himself to go by land.

13239

A young man was following Him, wearing nothing but a linen sheet over his naked body; and they seized him.

13241

They have set up kings, but not by Me; They have appointed princes, but I did not know it With their silver and gold they have made idols for themselves, That they might be cut off.

13242

Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, the height of which was sixty cubits and its width six cubits; he set it up on the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon.

13243

Then the angel who was speaking with me went out and said to me, "Lift up now your eyes and see what this is going forth."

13244

"My people, what have I done to you, And how have I wearied you? Answer Me.

13245

"Because you disheartened the righteous with falsehood when I did not cause him grief, but have encouraged the wicked not to turn from his wicked way and preserve his life,

13246

Then the glory of the LORD departed from the threshold of the temple and stood over the cherubim.

13247

As for the likeness of their faces, they were the same faces whose appearance I had seen by the river Chebar. Each one went straight ahead.

13248

'Like a cage full of birds, So their houses are full of deceit; Therefore they have become great and rich.

13249

"Come, let us drink our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with caresses.

13250

"Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "None of My words will be delayed any longer. Whatever word I speak will be performed,"'" declares the Lord GOD.

13251

"This city will not be a pot for you, nor will you be flesh in the midst of it, but I will judge you to the border of Israel.

13252

For the brokenness of the daughter of my people I am broken; I mourn, dismay has taken hold of me.

13253

Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Amend your ways and your deeds, and I will let you dwell in this place.

13254

But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword.

13255

"But when I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you will say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD ' He who hears, let him hear; and he who refuses, let him refuse; for they are a rebellious house.

13256

And you, O desolate one, what will you do? Although you dress in scarlet, Although you decorate yourself with ornaments of gold, Although you enlarge your eyes with paint, In vain you make yourself beautiful Your lovers despise you; They seek your life.

13257

Should your springs be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets?

13258

"It shall come about when they say, 'Why has the LORD our God done all these things to us?' then you shall say to them, 'As you have forsaken Me and served foreign gods in your land, so you will serve strangers in a land that is not yours.'

13259

How long must I see the standard And hear the sound of the trumpet?

13260

Do not be a witness against your neighbor without cause, And do not deceive with your lips.

13261

The desire of the sluggard puts him to death, For his hands refuse to work;

13262

He read from it before the square which was in front of the Water Gate from early morning until midday, in the presence of men and women, those who could understand; and all the people were attentive to the book of the law.

13264

Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God, For to You I pray.

13265

So we carried on the work with half of them holding spears from dawn until the stars appeared.

13266

"Oh that my grief were actually weighed And laid in the balances together with my calamity!

13267

"My friends are my scoffers; My eye weeps to God.

13268

"The rest of the needs for the house of your God, for which you may have occasion to provide, provide for it from the royal treasury.

13269

After him their brothers carried out repairs under Bavvai the son of Henadad, official of the other half of the district of Keilah.

13270

"So we boiled my son and ate him; and I said to her on the next day, 'Give your son, that we may eat him'; but she has hidden her son."

13271

At that time Tattenai, the governor of the province beyond the River, and Shethar-bozenai and their colleagues came to them and spoke to them thus, "Who issued you a decree to rebuild this temple and to finish this structure?"

13272

the sons of Azmaveth, 42;

13273

"Nevertheless I did not believe the reports, until I came and my eyes had seen it. And behold, the half was not told me. You exceed in wisdom and prosperity the report which I heard.

13274

Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took their respective firepans, and after putting fire in them, placed incense on it and offered strange fire before the LORD, which He had not commanded them.

13275

"Speak to Rehoboam the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all Israel in Judah and Benjamin, saying,

13276

'For the whole house of Ahab shall perish, and I will cut off from Ahab every male person both bond and free in Israel.

13277

The sons of Ram, the firstborn of Jerahmeel, were Maaz, Jamin and Eker.

13278

The mother of the lad said, "As the LORD lives and as you yourself live, I will not leave you." And he arose and followed her.

13279

It stood on twelve oxen, three facing north, three facing west, three facing south, and three facing east; and the sea was set on top of them, and all their rear parts turned inward.

13280

"Please run now to meet her and say to her, 'Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the child?'" And she answered, "It is well."

13281

The LORD said to Joshua, "See, I have given Jericho into your hand, with its king and the valiant warriors.

13282

Now Barzillai was very old, being eighty years old; and he had sustained the king while he stayed at Mahanaim, for he was a very great man.

13283

They waited until they became anxious; but behold, he did not open the doors of the roof chamber. Therefore they took the key and opened them, and behold, their master had fallen to the floor dead.

13284

"It shall not seem hard to you when you set him free, for he has given you six years with double the service of a hired man; so the LORD your God will bless you in whatever you do.

13285

Then Joab came to the king and said, "What have you done? Behold, Abner came to you; why then have you sent him away and he is already gone?

13286

Then Ibzan died and was buried in Bethlehem.

13287

Now Gideon had seventy sons who were his direct descendants, for he had many wives.

13288

'Not one of these men, this evil generation, shall see the good land which I swore to give your fathers,

13289

'The priest shall have her take an oath and shall say to the woman, "If no man has lain with you and if you have not gone astray into uncleanness, being under the authority of your husband, be immune to this water of bitterness that brings a curse;

13293

Thus did Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the sons of Israel to the Levites; according to all that the LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so the sons of Israel did to them.

13294

but what is left over from the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burned with fire.

13295

On the second day Nethanel the son of Zuar, leader of Issachar, presented an offering;

13296

'You are not to eat any blood, either of bird or animal, in any of your dwellings.

13297

"He shall make restitution for that which he has sinned against the holy thing, and shall add to it a fifth part of it and give it to the priest The priest shall then make atonement for him with the ram of the guilt offering, and it will be forgiven him.

13298

and the priest shall dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle it seven times before the LORD, in front of the veil.

13299

By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world.

13301

For the Law appoints men as high priests who are weak, but the word of the oath, which came after the Law, appoints a Son, made perfect forever.

13302

'He shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar which is before the LORD in the tent of meeting; and all the blood he shall pour out at the base of the altar of burnt offering which is at the doorway of the tent of meeting.

13303

in which also He went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison,

13304

And, "YOU, LORD, IN THE BEGINNING LAID THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH, AND THE HEAVENS ARE THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS;

13305

but he who paid no regard to the word of the LORD left his servants and his livestock in the field.

13306

But Moses said, "It is not right to do so, for we will sacrifice to the LORD our God what is an abomination to the Egyptians. If we sacrifice what is an abomination to the Egyptians before their eyes, will they not then stone us?

13309

but at the proper time manifested, even His word, in the proclamation with which I was entrusted according to the commandment of God our Savior,

13311

Be on guard against him yourself, for he vigorously opposed our teaching.

13312

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, according to the promise of life in Christ Jesus,

13313

for I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

13314

For He had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

13315

And there he spent three months, and when a plot was formed against him by the Jews as he was about to set sail for Syria, he decided to return through Macedonia.

13316

When the jailer awoke and saw the prison doors opened, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped.

13317

And having spent some time there, he left and passed successively through the Galatian region and Phrygia, strengthening all the disciples.

13318

When they had read it, they rejoiced because of its encouragement.

13319

And they said to Him, "The disciples of John often fast and offer prayers, the disciples of the Pharisees also do the same, but Yours eat and drink."

13321

John was clothed with camel's hair and wore a leather belt around his waist, and his diet was locusts and wild honey.

13322

and led Him to Annas first; for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year.

13323

"But I gave you also cleanness of teeth in all your cities And lack of bread in all your places, Yet you have not returned to Me," declares the LORD.

13324

His disciples said, "Lo, now You are speaking plainly and are not using a figure of speech.

13325

And He was saying to them, "You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.

13326

Two others also, who were criminals, were being led away to be put to death with Him.

13327

When the cherubim departed, they lifted their wings and rose up from the earth in my sight with the wheels beside them; and they stood still at the entrance of the east gate of the LORD'S house, and the glory of the God of Israel hovered over them.

13329

"Behold, your house is being left to you desolate!

13330

"But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity and does according to all the abominations that a wicked man does, will he live? All his righteous deeds which he has done will not be remembered for his treachery which he has committed and his sin which he has committed; for them he will die.

13331

He stretched out the form of a hand and caught me by a lock of my head; and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the entrance of the north gate of the inner court, where the seat of the idol of jealousy, which provokes to jealousy, was located.

13332

therefore, you women will no longer see false visions or practice divination, and I will deliver My people out of your hand Thus you will know that I am the LORD."

13333

Then I told the exiles all the things that the LORD had shown me.

13334

Suddenly he follows her As an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as one in fetters to the discipline of a fool,

13335

"The measuring line will go out farther straight ahead to the hill Gareb; then it will turn to Goah.

13336

For thus says the LORD to the men of Judah and to Jerusalem, "Break up your fallow ground, And do not sow among thorns.

13337

Ezra the scribe stood at a wooden podium which they had made for the purpose. And beside him stood Mattithiah, Shema, Anaiah, Uriah, Hilkiah, and Maaseiah on his right hand; and Pedaiah, Mishael, Malchijah, Hashum, Hashbaddanah, Zechariah and Meshullam on his left hand.

13338

"And I set watchmen over you, saying, 'Listen to the sound of the trumpet!' But they said, 'We will not listen.'

13339

There is an evil which I have seen under the sun and it is prevalent among men--

13340

I have seen all the living under the sun throng to the side of the second lad who replaces him.

13341

"For then it would be heavier than the sand of the seas; Therefore my words have been rash.

13342

"Yet all of this does not satisfy me every time I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king's gate."

13343

So Haman took the robe and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and led him on horseback through the city square, and proclaimed before him, "Thus it shall be done to the man whom the king desires to honor."

13344

'Also the gold and silver utensils of the house of God which Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the temple in Jerusalem, and brought them to the temple of Babylon, these King Cyrus took from the temple of Babylon and they were given to one whose name was Sheshbazzar, whom he had appointed governor.

13345

Then I set apart twelve of the leading priests, Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and with them ten of their brothers;

13346

"You, Ezra, according to the wisdom of your God which is in your hand, appoint magistrates and judges that they may judge all the people who are in the province beyond the River, even all those who know the laws of your God; and you may teach anyone who is ignorant of them.

13347

with whom the LORD made a covenant and commanded them, saying, "You shall not fear other gods, nor bow down yourselves to them nor serve them nor sacrifice to them.

13348

So the princes of Israel and the king humbled themselves and said, "The LORD is righteous."

13349

"Nevertheless I did not believe their reports until I came and my eyes had seen it. And behold, the half of the greatness of your wisdom was not told me. You surpass the report that I heard.

13350

She said to her mistress, "I wish that my master were with the prophet who is in Samaria! Then he would cure him of his leprosy."

13351

And when he humbled himself, the anger of the LORD turned away from him, so as not to destroy him completely; and also conditions were good in Judah.

13352

Then King Rehoboam made shields of bronze in their place and committed them to the care of the commanders of the guard who guarded the door of the king's house.

13353

Gath, Mareshah, Ziph,

13354

"You shall remember all the way which the LORD your God has led you in the wilderness these forty years, that He might humble you, testing you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.

13355

'All the days of his separation he shall not eat anything that is produced by the grape vine, from the seeds even to the skin.

13356

"May it fall on the head of Joab and on all his father's house; and may there not fail from the house of Joab one who has a discharge, or who is a leper, or who takes hold of a distaff, or who falls by the sword, or who lacks bread."

13358

The priest gave to the captains of hundreds the spears and shields that had been King David's, which were in the house of the LORD.

13359

select the best and fittest of your master's sons, and set him on his father's throne, and fight for your master's house."

13361

And the LORD opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, "What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?"

13362

Then he said to them, "Depart for three days, then return to me." So the people departed.

13363

Then Saul and all the people who were with him rallied and came to the battle; and behold, every man's sword was against his fellow, and there was very great confusion.

13364

"They looked, but there was none to save; Even to the LORD, but He did not answer them.

13365

They struck down at that time about ten thousand Moabites, all robust and valiant men; and no one escaped.

13366

They took them from inside the tent and brought them to Joshua and to all the sons of Israel, and they poured them out before the LORD.

13367

So Joshua commanded the priests, saying, "Come up from the Jordan."

13368

"Take for yourselves twelve men from the people, one man from each tribe,

13369

"You shall consecrate to the LORD your God all the firstborn males that are born of your herd and of your flock; you shall not work with the firstborn of your herd, nor shear the firstborn of your flock.

13370

Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

13371

Moses slaughtered it and took some of its blood and put it on the lobe of Aaron's right ear, and on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot.

13372

'Every male among the sons of Aaron may eat it; it is a permanent ordinance throughout your generations, from the offerings by fire to the LORD Whoever touches them will become consecrated.'"

13373

"Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and shall cover it inside and out with pitch.

13374

Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

13375

"Speak to Aaron and say to him, 'When you mount the lamps, the seven lamps will give light in the front of the lampstand.'"

13376

their numbered men of the tribe of Manasseh were 32,200.

13377

Then the LORD smote the people, because of what they did with the calf which Aaron had made.

13378

in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

13379

He also washed the entrails and the legs, and offered them up in smoke with the burnt offering on the altar.

13380

'Then he is to bring out the bull to a place outside the camp and burn it as he burned the first bull; it is the sin offering for the assembly.

13381

Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.

13382

Then the LORD said to Noah, "Enter the ark, you and all your household, for you alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this time.

13383

He made a screen for the doorway of the tent, of blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine twisted linen, the work of a weaver;

13384

"We are Jews by nature and not sinners from among the Gentiles;

13385

"And he said to him, 'Well done, good slave, because you have been faithful in a very little thing, you are to be in authority over ten cities.'

13386

"You shall set the bread of the Presence on the table before Me at all times.

13388

So all the Egyptians dug around the Nile for water to drink, for they could not drink of the water of the Nile.

13390

So he was reasoning in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing Gentiles, and in the market place every day with those who happened to be present.

13391

"You shall speak all that I command you, and your brother Aaron shall speak to Pharaoh that he let the sons of Israel go out of his land.

13393

Jude, a bond-servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, To those who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ:

13394

And when they did not agree with one another, they began leaving after Paul had spoken one parting word, "The Holy Spirit rightly spoke through Isaiah the prophet to your fathers,

13395

But someone will say, "How are the dead raised? And with what kind of body do they come?"

13396

But Saul began ravaging the church, entering house after house, and dragging off men and women, he would put them in prison.

13397

and they have been told about you, that you are teaching all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children nor to walk according to the customs.

13398

he said, "I will give you a hearing after your accusers arrive also," giving orders for him to be kept in Herod's Praetorium.

13399

And many of those who practiced magic brought their books together and began burning them in the sight of everyone; and they counted up the price of them and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.

13400

and he said, "I called out of my distress to the LORD, And He answered me I cried for help from the depth of Sheol; You heard my voice.

13401

"Though they hide on the summit of Carmel, I will search them out and take them from there; And though they conceal themselves from My sight on the floor of the sea, From there I will command the serpent and it will bite them.

13402

"These things I have spoken to you so that you may be kept from stumbling.

13403

One of the synagogue officials named Jairus came up, and on seeing Him, fell at His feet

13404

Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea,

13405

"If I alone testify about Myself, My testimony is not true.

13406

And Jesus said to them, "Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered this fate?

13407

The best of them is like a briar, The most upright like a thorn hedge The day when you post your watchmen, Your punishment will come Then their confusion will occur.

13408

The LORD changed His mind about this. "It shall not be," said the LORD.

13409

Then I looked, and behold, four wheels beside the cherubim, one wheel beside each cherub; and the appearance of the wheels was like the gleam of a Tarshish stone.

13410

Although I trained and strengthened their arms, Yet they devise evil against Me.

13411

But if you will not listen to it, My soul will sob in secret for such pride; And my eyes will bitterly weep And flow down with tears, Because the flock of the LORD has been taken captive.

13412

When I would heal Israel, The iniquity of Ephraim is uncovered, And the evil deeds of Samaria, For they deal falsely; The thief enters in, Bandits raid outside,

13413

Her feet go down to death, Her steps take hold of Sheol.

13414

"Son of man, behold, the house of Israel is saying, 'The vision that he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies of times far off.'

13415

And all the people know it, That is, Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria, Asserting in pride and in arrogance of heart:

13416

13792

For the priests and the Levites had purified themselves together; all of them were pure Then they slaughtered the Passover lamb for all the exiles, both for their brothers the priests and for themselves.

13793

They gave the money which was weighed out into the hands of those who did the work, who had the oversight of the house of the LORD; and they paid it out to the carpenters and the builders who worked on the house of the LORD;

13794

13798

(one third also shall be at the gate Sur, and one third at the gate behind the guards), shall keep watch over the house for defense.

"When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, When He separated the sons of man, He set the boundaries of the peoples According to the number of the sons of Israel.

13804

Zelek the Ammonite, Naharai the Beerothite, armor bearers of Joab the son of Zeruiah,

13805

Then the men of the city said to Joash, "Bring out your son, that he may die, for he has torn down the altar of Baal, and indeed, he has cut down the Asherah which was beside it."

13806

The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.'

So Joshua burned Ai and made it a heap forever, a desolation until this day.

13808

So Joshua called the twelve men whom he had appointed from the sons of Israel, one man from each tribe;

13811

"This is what applies to the Levites: from twenty-five years old and upward they shall enter to perform service in the work of the tent of meeting.

13812

'What is left of it Aaron and his sons are to eat. It shall be eaten as unleavened cakes in a holy place; they are to eat it in the court of the tent of meeting.

13813

'He shall bring the bull to the doorway of the tent of meeting before the LORD, and he shall lay his hand on the head of the bull and slay the bull before the LORD.

13817

He said, "Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel; for you have striven with God and with men and have prevailed."

13819

"As for the sons of Merari, you shall number them by their families, by their fathers' households;

"Take a census of the sons of Gershon also, by their fathers' households, by their families;

13822

By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter,

13823

Now the time that the sons of Israel lived in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years.

13824

The LORD did as Moses asked, and removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants and from his people; not one remained.

13825

and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.

13827

"Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.

13838

And Jesus cried out and said, "He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me.

13840

But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.

So Peter and the other disciple went forth, and they were going to the tomb.

13845

And He was also telling them a parable: "No one tears a piece of cloth from a new garment and puts it on an old garment; otherwise he will both tear the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old.

13846

When Jesus came into Peter's home, He saw his mother-in-law lying sick in bed with a fever.

13847

"For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.

'They will fling their silver into the streets and their gold will become an abhorrent thing; their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their appetite nor can they fill their stomachs, for their iniquity has become an occasion of stumbling.

13849

Now at the feast he used to release for them any one prisoner whom they requested.

13850

"It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, and the slave like his master. If they have called the head of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign the members of his household!

13851

He said to me, "Son of man, these are the men who devise iniquity and give evil advice in this city,

13853

Oh that my head were waters And my eyes a fountain of tears, That I might weep day and night For the slain of the daughter of my people!

13855

Moreover, He said to me, "Son of man, behold, I am going to break the staff of bread in Jerusalem, and they will eat bread by weight and with anxiety, and drink water by measure and in horror,

13856

Now Tobiah the Ammonite was near him and he said, "Even what they are building--if a fox should jump on it, he would break their stone wall down!"

13861
