The Lord said to my Lord,

Then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains, and those who are in the midst of the city must leave, and those who are in the country must not enter the city;

One out of a thousand,
To remind a man what is right for him,

18281

And when the Lord does for my lord according to all the good that He has spoken concerning you, and appoints you ruler over Israel,

And you yourself had taught them—
Former companions to be head over you?
Will not pangs take hold of you
Like a woman in childbirth?

18313

Now when these things had been completed, the princes approached me, saying, “The people of Israel and the priests and the Levites have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands, according to their abominations, those of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians and the Amorites.

18314

“To whom would He teach knowledge,
And to whom would He interpret the message?
Those just weaned from milk?
Those just taken from the breast?

So they made their father drink wine that night, and the firstborn went in and lay with her father; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.

18316

“Who has given to Me that I should repay him?
Whatever is under the whole heaven is Mine.

18317

18321

Therefore she said to Abraham, “Drive out this maid and her son, for the son of this maid shall not be an heir with my son Isaac.”

and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.

18330

and He overthrew those cities, and all the valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.

18331

The foundation stones of the city wall were adorned with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation stone was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald;

18332

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!

18336

But I have written very boldly to you on some points so as to remind you again, because of the grace that was given me from God,

18337

And He said to them, “What are these words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking?” And they stood still, looking sad.

18338

Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with what is my own? Or is your eye envious because I am generous?’

18339

that they made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (that is, Zoar).

18340

“I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud
And your sins like a heavy mist.
Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.”

18341

Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress;
My eye is wasted away from grief, my soul and my body also.

18342

“When I was informed that there would be a plot against the man, I sent him to you at once, also instructing his accusers to bring charges against him before you.”

18345

They forsook all the commandments of the Lord their God and made for themselves molten images, even two calves, and made an Asherah and worshiped all the host of heaven and served Baal.

18346

The king sat on his seat as usual, the seat by the wall; then Jonathan rose up and Abner sat down by Saul’s side, but David’s place was empty.

18350

Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord and said, ‘I will entice him.’

18351

If any of the flesh of ordination or any of the bread remains until morning, then you shall burn the remainder with fire; it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.

18356

You shall celebrate the Feast of Booths seven days after you have gathered in from your threshing floor and your wine vat;

18358

Woe to those who enact evil statutes
And to those who constantly record unjust decisions,

18359

A ruin, a ruin, a ruin, I will make it. This also will be no more until He comes whose right it is, and I will give it to Him.’

18361

“Will the wild ox consent to serve you,
Or will he spend the night at your manger?

18362

Then afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessing and the curse, according to all that is written in the book of the law.

18363

For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord; whoever does any work on the sabbath day shall surely be put to death.

18365

Then Samuel said, “Bring me Agag, the king of the Amalekites.” And Agag came to him cheerfully. And Agag said, “Surely the bitterness of death is past.”

18366

18368

Then they said to Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen; but let not God speak to us, or we will die.”

18373

Man expires, and where is he?

18374

“It will come about in that day,” declares the Lord,
“That you will call Me Ishi
And will no longer call Me Baali.

18375

They began reasoning among themselves, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ He will say, ‘Then why did you not believe him?’

18376

It happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land.

18377

Who is among you that fears the Lord,
That obeys the voice of His servant,
That walks in darkness and has no light?
Let him trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God.

18378

“Behold, I am insignificant; what can I reply to You?
I lay my hand on my mouth.

18379

Then Moses entreated the Lord his God, and said, “O Lord, why does Your anger burn against Your people whom You have brought out from the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand?

18380

For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy.

18381

Then Job answered,

18382

With His arm ruling for Him.
Behold, His reward is with Him
And His recompense before Him.

18383

The Lord commanded the angel, and he put his sword back in its sheath.

18384

Besides, she actually is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife;

18385

If these men die the death of all men or if they suffer the fate of all men, then the Lord has not sent me.

18386

Enlarge the place of your tent;
Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not;
Lengthen your cords
And strengthen your pegs.

18387

Then he said, “I have something to say to you.” And she said, “Speak.”

18388

Then the Jews began to argue with one another, saying, “How can this man give us His flesh to eat?”

18390

therefore the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken.

18392

Do not add to His words
Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.

18394

But to sit on My right or on My left, this is not Mine to give; but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.”

18396

Then Saul took three thousand chosen men from all Israel and went to seek David and his men in front of the Rocks of the Wild Goats.

18399

But before very long there rushed down from the land a violent wind, called Euraquilo;

18400

Then on the fifteenth day of the same month there is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread.

18403

For we will surely die and are like water spilled on the ground which cannot be gathered up again. Yet God does not take away life, but plans ways so that the banished one will not be cast out from him.

18405

Then Jacob lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, Esau was coming, and four hundred men with him. So he divided the children among Leah and Rachel and the two maids.

18406

The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters;
The fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.

18407

Now these are the records of the generations of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s maid, bore to Abraham;

18408

Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;
A stranger, and not your own lips.

18409

Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,

18410

The material of the wall was jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.

18411

Amnon was so frustrated because of his sister Tamar that he made himself ill, for she was a virgin, and it seemed hard to Amnon to do anything to her.

18412

Behold now, I have stretched out My hand against you and diminished your rations. And I delivered you up to the desire of those who hate you, the daughters of the Philistines, who are ashamed of your lewd conduct.

18413

Your hands fashioned and made me altogether,
And would You destroy me?

18414

In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight is the Lord’s Passover.

18415

and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.

18416

said with a loud voice, “Stand upright on your feet.” And he leaped up and began to walk.

18418

In the third year Jehoshaphat the king of Judah came down to the king of Israel.

A Psalm.

His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him.

18420

Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother’s wife, he wasted his seed on the ground in order not to give offspring to his brother.

18422

But God came to Abimelech in a dream of the night, and said to him, “Behold, you are a dead man because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is married.”

18423

Then David said to himself, “Now I will perish one day by the hand of Saul. There is nothing better for me than to escape into the land of the Philistines. Saul then will despair of searching for me anymore in all the territory of Israel, and I will escape from his hand.”

18424

The city shall be 18,000 cubits round about; and the name of the city from that day shall be, ‘The Lord is there.’”

18425

The Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, even through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations which are being committed in its midst.”

18427

The oracle concerning Tyre.
Wail, O ships of Tarshish,
For Tyre is destroyed, without house or harbor;
It is reported to them from the land of Cyprus.

18428

A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth.

18429

Therefore behold, I will once again deal marvelously with this people, wondrously marvelous;
And the wisdom of their wise men will perish,
And the discernment of their discerning men will be concealed.”

18430

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether.

18431

And they remembered His words,

18432

But as it is, you are seeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God; this Abraham did not do.

18433

and said, “My Lord, if now I have found favor in Your sight, please do not pass Your servant by.

18435

The Levite, because he has no portion or inheritance among you, and the alien, the orphan and the widow who are in your town, shall come and eat and be satisfied, in order that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.

18436

God also said to him,
“I am God Almighty;
Be fruitful and multiply;
A nation and a company of nations shall come from you,
And kings shall come forth from you.

18437

But they kept silent. And He took hold of him and healed him, and sent him away.

18438

God said further to Abraham, “Now as for you, you shall keep My covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations.

18439

“Can a vigorous man be of use to God,
Or a wise man be useful to himself?

18440

Then the sons of Israel came against the sons of Benjamin the second day.

18441

And I will bless Your name forever and ever.

18442

18443

But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If it is so, why then am I this way?” So she went to inquire of the Lord.

18446

So Joseph died at the age of one hundred and ten years; and he was embalmed and placed in a coffin in Egypt.

18448

Now go, write it on a tablet before them
And inscribe it on a scroll,
That it may serve in the time to come
As a witness forever.

18449

For zeal for Your house has consumed me,
And the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me.

18450

For the choir director. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord.
Transgression speaks to the ungodly within his heart;
There is no fear of God before his eyes.

18452

So make up your minds not to prepare beforehand to defend yourselves;

18453

To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,

18454

Now it came about in the days of Ahaz, the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Aram and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up to Jerusalem to wage war against it, but could not conquer it.

18455

For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled.

18456

I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God
Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

18457

“When a cloud vanishes, it is gone,
So he who goes down to Sheol does not come up.

18458

“If you happen to come upon a bird’s nest along the way, in any tree or on the ground, with young ones or eggs, and the mother sitting on the young or on the eggs, you shall not take the mother with the young;

18459

He laid his body in his own grave, and they mourned over him, saying, “Alas, my brother!”

18460

For the Lord is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations.

18461

but now is manifested, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the eternal God, has been made known to all the nations, leading to obedience of faith;

18462

“His head is like gold, pure gold;
His locks are like clusters of dates
And black as a raven.

18463

Wisdom is too exalted for a fool,
He does not open his mouth in the gate.

18464

Let my teaching drop as the rain,
My speech distill as the dew,
As the droplets on the fresh grass
And as the showers on the herb.

18465

“Now this is what you shall offer on the altar: two one year old lambs each day, continuously.

18467

and he went out to meet Asa and said to him, “Listen to me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: the Lord is with you when you are with Him. And if you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you.

18468

But when the Jews of Thessalonica found out that the word of God had been proclaimed by Paul in Berea also, they came there as well, agitating and stirring up the crowds.

18471

Behold, the day of the Lord is coming,
Cruel, with fury and burning anger,
To make the land a desolation;
And He will exterminate its sinners from it.

18472

“On what were its bases sunk?
Or who laid its cornerstone,

18473

When He was in Galilee, they used to follow Him and minister to Him; and there were many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.

18474

Yet even lifeless things, either flute or harp, in producing a sound, if they do not produce a distinction in the tones, how will it be known what is played on the flute or on the harp?

18475

But Paul kept insisting that they should not take him along who had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not gone with them to the work.

18476

Then the Lord said to Moses, “How long do you refuse to keep My commandments and My instructions?

18477

“Oh that You would hide me in Sheol,
That You would conceal me until Your wrath returns to You,
That You would set a limit for me and remember me!

18478

Furthermore, the altar that was at Bethel and the high place which Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel sin, had made, even that altar and the high place he broke down. Then he demolished its stones, ground them to dust, and burned the Asherah.

18480

The one who despises the word will be in debt to it,
But the one who fears the commandment will be rewarded.

18481

But they kept silent, for on the way they had discussed with one another which of them was the greatest.

18482

“Thus you shall do to Aaron and to his sons, according to all that I have commanded you; you shall ordain them through seven days.

18483

So then, brethren, we are not children of a bondwoman, but of the free woman.

18484

“You were blameless in your ways
From the day you were created
Until unrighteousness was found in you.

18485
