And it will be in the morning, and his soul will be troubled; and he will send and call all the sacred scribes of Egypt, and all his wise; and Pharaoh will relate to them his dream; and none interpreting them to Pharaoh. And the chief of the cup-bearers will speak to Pharaoh, saying, I, remembering my sin this day. Pharaoh was angry with his servants, and gave me in guard in the house of the chief of the cooks, me and the chief of the bakers. And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he: we dreamed a man according to the interpretation of his dream. And there with us a Hebrew youth, servant to the chief of the cooks: and we shall relate to him, and he will interpret to us our dreams; and he interpreted a man according to his dream.

And the heifers thin and evil will devour the first seven fat heifers. And they shall come into their belly, and they shall not know that they came into their belly; and evil of form as that in the beginning. And I shall awake. And I shall see in my dream, and behold, seven ears coming up in one stalk, full and good. And behold, seven ears dry, thin, blasted by the east, springing up after them. And the thin ears will swallow the seven good ears: and I spake to the sacred scribes, and there was none announcing to me. And Joseph will say to Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh, one: this which he did; God announces to Pharaoh. The seven good heifers, they are seven years; and the seven good ears, they are seven years: this dream one. And the seven heifers, thin and evil, coming up after them, they are seven years; and the seven ears, thin, blasted by the east, shall be seven years of famine. This the word which I spake to Pharaoh: what God did, he showed Pharaoh. Behold, seven years coming of great plenty, in all the land of Egypt And seven years of famine arose after them, and all the plenty was forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine consumed the land. And the plenty shall not be known in the land on account of the famine after this; for it shall be exceedingly heavy. And because of the repeating of Pharaoh's dream twice, that the word was prepared from God; and God is hastening to do it And now will Pharaoh look out a man discerning and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt And will Pharaoh make and appoint overseers over the land, exacting a fifth part of the land of Egypt, in the seven years of plenty. And they shall gather all the food of these good years coming, and they shall heap up the grain under the hand of Pharaoh, and they shall watch food in the cities. And the food was for a deposit to the land, for the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; and the land shall not be cut off in the famine. And the word will be good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants. And Pharaoh will say to his servants, Shall we find such as this man which has the spirit of God in him? And Pharaoh will say to Joseph, After that God showed thee all this, none discerning and wise as thou. Thou shalt be over my house, and to thy mouth all my people shall bend: only upon the throne I shall be great above thee. And Pharaoh will say to Joseph, See, I gave thee over all the land of Egypt And Pharaoh will remove his signet ring from his hand, and will give it upon Joseph's hand; and will put upon him a white garment, and will put a gold collar about his neck. And he will cause him to ride in the second chariot which is to him. And they will cry out before him, Aback. And he gave him over all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh will say to Joseph, I am Pharaoh; and without thee, a man shall not lift up his hand and his foot in all the land of Egypt

Now, O king, wilt thou set up the interdict, and sign the writing, that not to be changed according to the law of Media and Persia, which shall not pass away. For this cause, king Darius signed the writing and the interdict And Daniel as soon as he knew that the writing was signed, went up into his house; and the windows being opened to him in his upper chambers before Jerusalem, three times in the day he kneeled upon his knees, and praying and praising before his God, for the cause that he did from before this Then these men ran together with tumult and found Daniel seeking and making supplication before his God. At that time they drew near, and saying before the king concerning the interdict of the king, Didst thou not sign an interdict that every man that shall seek from any God and man even for thirty days, except from thee, O King, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The word is certain, according to the law of Media and Persia, that shall not pass away. At that time they answered, and saying before the king, That Daniel that is from the sons of the captivity of Judah set not up an account to thee, O king, and to the interdict that thou didst sign; and three times in the day he sought his requests. Then the king as soon as he heard the word, was greatly displeased with himself, and upon Daniel he set the heart to set him free: and even to the going down of the sun he was exerting himself to deliver him. At that time these men ran together with tumult to the king, and saying to the king, Know, O king, that the law to Media and Persia is, that every interdict and statute that the king shall set up is not to be changed. At that time the king said, and they brought Daniel and cast into the den of the lions; the king answered and said to Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest to him continually, he will set thee free. And one stone was brought and set upon the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his signet ring, and with the signet ring of his nobles, that the will shall not be changed upon Daniel. Then the king departed to his temple and passed the night fasting: and he brought not his concubines before him, and his sleep fled from him. At that time the king will rise in the dawn in the morning, and in haste he departed to the lion's den. And in his drawing near to the den he cried to Daniel with a strong voice, the king answered and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, thy God whom thou servest to him continually, is he able to set thee free from the lion's den? Then Daniel said to the king, O king, live forever. My God sent his messenger and shut the mouth of the lions, and they hurt me not, for the cause that innocence was found to me; and also before thee, O king, I did no hurt.


And he said, A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to the father, Father, give me the portion of property falling. And he divided to them the property.

And having spent all things, a powerful famine was in that country; and he began to be in want. And having gone, he was joined to one of the citizens of that country; and he sent him into the fields to feed swine. And he eagerly desired to fill his belly with the fruits of the horntree which the swine ate: and none gave to him. And having come to himself, he said, Many hired of my father abound in loaves, and I am perishing with hunger! Having risen, I will go to my father, and say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And I am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired. And having risen, he came to his father. And yet being far off, his father saw him, and felt compassion, and having run, fell upon his neck, and kissed him. And the son said to him, Father, I sinned against heaven, and before thee, and I am no more worthy to be called thy son. And the father said to his servants, Bring out the first robe, and clothe him; and give a ring for his hand, and shoes for the feet: And having brought the fatted calf, sacrifice, and eating, let us be gladdened. For this my son was dead, and has returned to life; and he was lost, and found. And they began to be gladdened.


And the king will say to Ashpenaz the leader of his eunuchs to bring from the sons of Israel and from the seed royal, and from the nobles; Children whom not any blemish in them, and good of aspect, and understanding in all wisdom, and knowing knowledge, and understanding intelligence, and to whom power in them to stand in the king's temple, and to teach them the writing and tongue of the chaldees And the king will allot to them the word of a day in its day from the king's dainties and from the wine of his drinking: and to nourish them three years, and from the end of three years they shall stand before the king. read more.

And God will give Daniel to mercy and compassion before the chiefs of the eunuchs. And the chief of the eunuchs will say to Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who allotted your food and your drink: for wherefore shall he see your faces gloomy above the children as of your age? and make my head guilty to the King And Daniel will say to Melzar, whom the chief of the eunuchs appointed over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, Prove now thy servants, ten days; and they shall give to us from seed herbs, and we will eat, and water, and we will drink. And our aspects shall be seen before thee, and the aspect of the children eating the king's dainties: and according to what thou shalt see, do with thy servants. And he wilt hear to them for this word, and he will try them ten days. And from the end of ten days their aspect was seen good and fat of flesh above all the children eating of the king's dainties.


And one woman from the wives of the sons of the prophets cried to Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband died, and thou knewest that thy servant was fearing Jehovah: and the creditor came to take my two children for servants.

And the sons of the prophets will say to Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell there before thee is narrow for us.

And Peter said, Ananias, wherefore filled Satan thy heart, for thee to belie the Holy Spirit, and separate from the price of the farm read more.
Remaining, did it not remain to thee? and sold, it was in thy power: for what hast thou put this thing in thy heart? thou hast not lied to men, but to God.

Jesus says to him, Arise, take up thy couch, and walk. And quickly the man was well, and he took up his couch, and walked: and the sabbath was in that day.
