and they saw the God of Israel, - and under his feet, like a pavement of sapphire, and like the very heavens for brightness; and

And it came to pass on the third day, when the morning had come, that there were thunderings and lightnings, and a heavy cloud upon the mount, and the sound of a horn, loud exceedingly, - and all the people who were in the camp trembled. And Moses brought forth the people, to meet God out of the camp, - and they stationed themselves in the lower part of the mount, And Mount Sinai, smoked, all over, because Yahweh had come down thereon in fire, - and the smoke thereof went up as the smoke of a furnace, and all the mountain trembled exceedingly. read more.
And as oft as the sound of the horn went on and became exceeding loud, Moses, spake and, God, responded to him with a voice. Thus came Yahweh down upon Mount Sinai unto the top of the mount, - and Yahweh called Moses unto the top of the mount, and Moses went up.

So then Moses wont up into the mountain, - and the cloud covered the mountain. And the glory of Yahweh rested upon Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days, - then called he unto Moses on the seventh day, out of the midst of the cloud. And the appearance of the glory of Yahweh was like a consuming fire h on the top of the mountain, - in the sight of the sons of Israel.

Did a people ever hear the voice of a god speaking out of the midst of fire, as, thou, didst hear, and yet live?


Now the birth, of Jesus Christ, was, thus: His mother Mary having been betrothed to Joseph, - before they came together, she was found with child by the Holy Spirit. Moreover, Joseph her husband, being, righteous, and yet unwilling to expose her, - intended, privately, to divorce her. But, when, these things, he had pondered, lo! a messenger of the Lord, by dream, appeared to him, saying, - Joseph, son of David! do not fear to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for, that which, in her, hath been begotten, is of the , Holy, Spirit. read more.
Moreover she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus, - for, he, will save his people from their sins. But, all this, hath come to pass, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord, through the prophet, saying: Lo! a Virgin, shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, - and they shall call his name Emmanuel; which is, being translated, God with us. And Joseph, awaking, from his sleep, did as the messenger of the Lord directed him, - and took unto him his wife; and knew her not, until she had brought forth a son, - and he called his name Jesus.

Now, in the sixth month, was the messenger Gabriel sent forth from God, into a city of Galilee, the name of which was Nazareth, - unto a virgin, betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and, the name of the virgin, was, Mary; and entering in unto her, he said - Joy to thee, favoured one! The Lord, be with thee! read more.
And, she, at the word, was greatly troubled, and began to deliberate, of what kind, this salutation, might be. And the messenger said unto her - Do not fear, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God, - And 1o! thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name, Jesus: the same, shall be great, and, Son of the Most High, shall be called, and the Lord God, will give unto him, the throne of David his father, - And he shall reign over the house of Jacob, unto the ages, and, of his kingdom, there shall be, no end. But Mary said unto the messenger - How, shall this thing be, seeing that, a man, I know not? And answering, the messenger said unto her - The Holy Spirit, shall come upon thee, and, the power of the Most High, shall overshadow thee; wherefore, even that which is to be born, Holy, shall be called, Son of God. And lo! Elizabeth thy kinswoman, even she, hath conceived a son in, her old-age; - and, this month, is, the sixth, to her, the so-called barren one; Because no declaration from God, shall be void of power. And Mary said - Lo! the handmaid of the Lord! Might it come to pass unto me, according to thy declaration. And the messenger departed from her. And Mary, arising, in these days, journeyed into the hill country with haste, into a city of Judah, - and entered into the house of Zachariah, and saluted Elizabeth. And it came to pass that, as Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leapt in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with Holy Spirit, - and lifted up her voice with loud exclamation, and said - Blessed, art thou among women, and, blessed, is the fruit of thy womb; And, whence, to me is, this, That the mother of my Lord should come, unto me? For lo! as the sound of thy salutation came into mine ears, the babe in my womb, leapt in exultation. And, happy, is she who hath believed, that there shall be a perfecting of the things which have been spoken to her from the Lord! And Mary said - My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath exulted upon God my saviour; Because he hath looked upon the humbling of his handmaid; for lo! from the present time, all the generations, will pronounce me happy. Because he that is mighty hath done for me great things, and, holy, is his name; And his mercy is unto generations and generations, to them who revere him; He hath wrought strength with his arm, He hath scattered men arrogant in the intention of their heart; He hath deposed potentates from thrones, and uplifted the lowly; The hungry, hath he filled with good things, and, the wealthy, hath he sent empty away; He hath laid hold of Israel his servant, to be mindful of mercies: According as he spake unto our fathers, - To Abraham, and to his seed, - Unto times age-abiding. And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned unto her house. And, to Elizabeth, was the time fulfilled, that she should be bringing forth, - and she gave birth to a son. And her neighbours and kinsfolk heard, that the Lord had magnified his mercy with her, and they were rejoicing with her. And it came to pass, on the eighth day, that they came to circumcise the child, and were calling it, after the name of its father, Zachariah. And his mother, answering, said - Nay! but he shall be called, John. And they said unto her - There is, no one from among thy kindred, who is called by this name! And they began making signs unto his father, as to what he might be wishing it to be called. And, asking for a small tablet, he wrote, saying - John, is his name! and they marvelled all. And his mouth was opened instantly, and his tongue loosed , and he began to speak, blessing, God. And fear came upon all the neighbours themselves; and, throughout all the hill-country of Judaea, were all these matters being much talked of; and all who heard laid them up in their hearts, saying - What then shall his child be? for, even the hand of the Lord, was with him. And, Zachariah his father, was filled with Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying: - Blessed, be the Lord, the God of Israel! Because he hath visited and wrought redemption for his people, And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us, In the house of David his servant: According as he hath spoken by mouth of his holy ancient prophets, - Of salvation from among our foes, and out of the hand of all them that hate us: To perform mercy with our fathers, and to be mindful of his holy covenant, - The oath which he sware unto Abraham our father, To grant us, without fear, from the hand of enemies rescued, to be rendering divine service unto him, in lovingkindness and righteousness before him, all our days. And, even thou, child, prophet of the Most High, shalt be called, - for thou shall march on before the Lord, to prepare his ways, Giving a knowledge of salvation unto his people, by a remission of their sins. Because of the yearning compassion of the mercy of our God, wherein shall visit us a day-dawn from on high, - To shine on them who, in the darkness and shade of death, are sitting, to guide our feet into a way of peace. And, the child, went on growing, and being strengthened in spirit, and was in the deserts, until the day he was pointed out unto Israel.


And it came to pass as he made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground which was under them, clave asunder; and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up them, and their households, - and all the human beings who pertained unto Korah, with all their goods: so, they, and all that pertained unto them, went down, alive unto hades, - and the earth, closed pen them, and they perished out of the midst of the convocation. read more.
And, all Israel who were round about them, fled at their cry, - for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up. Fire also came forth, from Yahweh, - and consumed the two hundred and fifty men, who offered the incense.

For yours, are the eyes that have seen every great deed of Yahweh, - which he hath done.


And the messenger of God who was going on before the camp of Israel removed, and came on behind them, - and the pillar of cloud removed from before them, and stood behind them; so it came in between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel, so it became a cloud and darkness, and yet lighted up the night, - so that the one came not near unto the other, all the night.

Now, Yahweh, was going before them - by day, in a pillar of cloud to lead them the way, and by night, in a pillar of fire to give them light, - that they might journey day and night: the pillar of cloud by day ceased not, nor the pillar of fire by night, - from before the people.

Then said he - Cast it to the earth. And he cast it to the earth, and it became a serpent, - and Moses fled from the face thereof. And Yahweh said unto Moses, Put forth thy hand, and take it by its tail: So he put forth his hand, and laid hold of it, and it became a staff in his hand: -

yea they cast down each man his staff, and they became sea-serpents, - but Aaron's staff swallowed up their staves.

I have been gathering a couple of sticks, so I shall go in and make it ready for me and for my son, that we may eat it - and die! And Elijah said unto her - Do not fear, go in - make ready according to thy word, - howbeit, make me thereof a little cake, first, and bring it out to me, and, for thyself and thy son, make ready, afterwards. For, thus, saith Yahweh, God of Israel, The jar of meal, shall not waste, and, the cruse of oil, shall not fail, - until the day that Yahweh giveth rain upon the face of the ground. So she went and made ready, according to the word of Elijah, - and did eat, she, and he, and her house, certain days: The jar of meal, did not waste, - and, the cruse of oil, did not fail, - according to the word of Yahweh, which he spake through Elijah.

And Samson said - Let my soul die with the Philistines! And he bowed mightily, and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead, whom he slew at his death, were more than they whom he slew in his life.


And it came to pass, that the ark of Yahweh was in the country of the Philistines, seven months. Then called the Philistines for the priests and for the diviners, saying, What shall we do with the ark of Yahweh? Let us know, wherewith we shall send it to its own place. And they said - If ye are going to send away the ark of the God of Israel, do not send it away, empty, but ye must, surely return, to him, a guilt-offering, - then, shall ye be healed, and it shall be known to you, wherefore his hand would not turn away from you. read more.
And they said - What shall be the guilt-offering, that we shall return to him? And they said - By the number of the lords of the Philistines, five tumours of gold, and five mice of gold, - for, one plague, was on you all, and on your lords. Wherefore ye shall make likenesses of your turnouts, and likenesses of your mice that are laying waste the land, and shall, give unto the, God of Israel, glory, - Peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your god, and from off your land. Wherefore, then, should ye make your heart dull, as the Egyptians and Pharaoh made their heart dull! When he had done his great doings upon them, did they not let them go, and they departed? Now, therefore, take and get ready, one new waggon, and two milch kine, whereon hath never come yoke, - then shall ye fasten the kine in the waggon, and withdraw their calves from them, into the shed; and ye shall take the ark of Yahweh, and place it in the waggon, also, the jewels of gold which ye send back to him as a guilt-offering, shall ye put into a coffer, at the side thereof, - so shall ye let it go, and it shall depart.

The men, therefore, did so, and took two milch kine, and fastened them in the waggon, - but, their calves, shut they up in the shed. And they put the ark of Yahweh, into the waggon, - also the coffer, with the mice of gold, and the likenesses of their tumours. And the kine went straight along the road, on the way to Beth-shemesh, yea, along the main highway, they went, lowing as they went, turning not aside, to the right hand or to the left. And, the lords of the Philistines, went along after them, as far as the bounds of Beth-shemesh. Now, they of Beth-shemesh, were reaping their wheat-harvest in the vale, - so they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to meet it. And, the waggon, entered into the field of Joshua, a man of Beth-shemesh, and stood still, there, where also, was a great stone, - so they clave into pieces the planks of the waggon, and, the kine, offered they up as an ascending-sacrifice, unto Yahweh. And, the Levites, took down the ark of Yahweh, and the coffer that was with it, wherein were the jewels of gold, and put them upon the great stone, - and, the men of Beth-shemesh, caused to go up ascending-offerings and offered sacrifices, that day, unto Yahweh. And, the five lords of the Philistines, saw it, - and returned unto Ekron, the same day. Now, these, are the golden boils which, the Philistines returned as a guilt-offering unto Yahweh, - For Ashdod, one, for Gaza, one, for Ashkelon, one, for Gath, one, for Ekron, one; And the golden mice, by the number of all the cities of the Philistines, pertaining to the five lords, both fortified cities, and country villages, - yea, even the great meadow whereon they rested the ark of Yahweh, until this day, is in the field-land of Joshua, the man of Beth-shemesh.

And so it was, after they had taken it round, then was the hand of Yahweh against the city, with an exceeding great consternation, and he smote the men of the city, from the least, even unto the greatest, - and they brake out with tumours. Then sent they the ark of God to Ekron, - and so it was, when the ark of God entered Ekron, that the Ekronites made outcry, saying - They have brought round unto me the ark of the God of Israel, to slay me, and my people! So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said - Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and restore it to its own place, that it slay not me, and my people. For there had come a deadly consternation, throughout all the city, heavy exceedingly, was the hand of God there. read more.
And, the men who died not, were smitten with the tumours, - so the cry of the city for help, ascended the heavens.

Then said he unto his young man - Go up, I pray thee, and look about in the direction of the sea. So he went up, and looked about, and said - There is, nothing whatever. Then said he - Go again, seven times. read more.
And it came to pass, at the seventh time, that he said, Lo! a little cloud, like a man's hand coming up from the sea. Then he said - Go up, say unto Ahab - Harness, and get thee down, lest the rain shut thee in. And it came to pass, meanwhile, that, the heavens, had enshrouded themselves with clouds and wind, and there came a great rain, and Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel;


Then, spake Joshua unto Yahweh, on the day when Yahweh delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, - yea he said, in the presence of Israel - Thou Sun! in Gibeon, be still, and thou Moon! in the vale of Aijalon. So the sun, was still, and, the moon, stayed, until a nation should be avenged on its fees. Is not, that, written in the Book of the Upright? So then the sun stayed in the middle of the heavens, and hastened not to go in, about a whole day. And there was no day like that - before it or after it, when Yahweh hearkened unto the voice of a man, - in that, Yahweh, himself fought for Israel.


So Yahweh laid pestilence, upon Israel, - and there fell, of Israel, seventy thousand men. And God sent a messenger to Jerusalem, to lay it waste, but, as he was laying it waste, Yahweh looked, and relented concerning the calamity, and said unto the messenger who was laying waste, Enough! now, stay thy hand.

And, the messenger of Yahweh, commanded Gad, to say unto David, - that David should go up, to rear an altar unto Yahweh, in the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite. So David went up, according to the word of Gad, which he spake in the name of Yahweh. And Ornan turned, and saw the messenger, but, his four sons with him, were hiding themselves, - now, Ornan, had been threshing wheat. Then came David unto Ornan, - and Ornan looked, and saw David, and went forth out of the threshing-floor, and bowed himself unto David, with his face to the ground. And David said unto Ornan, Grant me the place of the threshing-floor, that I may build thereon an altar, unto Yahweh, - for silver in full, shalt thou grant it me, that the plague may be stayed from off the people. And Ornan said unto David, Take it to thee, and let my lord the king do what is good in his own eyes, - see! I have given the oxen for ascending-sacrifices, and, the threshing implements for wood, and the wheat for a meal-offering, - the whole, have I given. Then said King David to Ornan, Nay! but I will, surely buy, it for silver in full, - for I will not take that which is thine for Yahweh, nor offer an ascending-sacrifice that hath cost me nothing. So David gave to Ornan, for the place, - shekels of gold, by weight, six hundred. And David built there an altar unto Yahweh, and caused to go up ascending-sacrifices, and peace-offerings, - and called unto Yahweh, and he responded to him, by fire, out of the heavens, upon the altar of ascending-sacrifice.

I will cry unto Yahweh, that he may give forth thunderings and rain, - know ye then and see, that, your wrong, is great which ye have done in the sight of Yahweh, in asking for yourselves, a king. So Samuel cried unto Yahweh, and Yahweh gave forth thunderings and rain, on that day, - and all the people greatly feared Yahweh, and Samuel.


And it came to pass, after these things, that the son of the woman, owner of the house, fell sick, - yea it came to pass that his sickness was very severe, until no, breath, was left in him. Then said she unto Elijah, What have I in common with thee, O man of God? Hast thou come unto me, to call to remembrance mine iniquity, and to cause the death of my son?

And Yahweh hearkened unto the voice of Elijah, - and the life of the boy came again within him, and he lived. Then Elijah took the boy, and carried him down out of the upper room, into the house, and gave him to his mother, - and Elijah said, See! thy son liveth.

But the sons of Israel, had gone their way on dry ground in the saidst of the sea, - and the waters had been to them a wall, on their right hand and on their left. Thus did Yahweh, on that day, save Israel, out of the hand of the Egyptians, - and Israel saw the Egyptians, dead on the shore of the sea.

Now, Gehazi, had passed on before them, and laid the staff on the face of the boy, but there was neither voice, nor attention, - so he returned to meet him, and told him, saying - The boy hath not awaked. And, when Elisha had come into the house, lo! the boy, was dead, laid upon his bed. So he went in, and shut the door upon them two, - and prayed unto Yahweh. Then gat he up, and lay upon the child, and put his own mouth upon his mouth, and his own eyes upon his eyes, and his own hands upon his hands, and bowed himself upon him, - and the flesh of the child, waxed warm. Then retraced he, and walked in the house - once to and fro, and then went up and bowed himself upon him, - and the boy sneezed as many as seven times, and the boy opened his eyes. Then called he Gehazi, and said - Call this Shunammitess. So he called her, and, when she was come in unto him, he said - Take up thy son. So she came in, and fell at his feet, and bowed herself to the ground, - and took up her son, and went forth.


Now, Elisha, returned to Gilgal, and there was, a famine, in the land, and, the sons of the prophets, being seated before him, he said to his young man - Put on the large pot, and boil a mess of food, for the sons of the prophets. And one went out into the field, to gather herbs, and found a vine in the field, and gathered thereof wild gourds, his lap full, and came in, and sliced them into the pot; for they knew them not. So they poured out for the men to eat, - and it came so pass, as they were eating of the mess, that, they, made outcry and said - Death in the pot, O man of God! And they could not eat. read more.
And he said - Then fetch meal. And he cast it into the pot, - and then said - Pour out for the people, that they may eat. And there was no harm in the pot.


Then he said unto him - My heart, had not gone with thee, when someone turned again from off his chariot, to meet thee! Is it a time to accept silver, or to accept raiment, or oliveyards, or vineyards, or flocks or herds, or men-servants, or maid-servants? The leprosy of Naaman, therefore, shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed, to times age-abiding. And he went forth from before him - a leper - like snow.


And it came to pass, in the morning, when the offering ascended, that lo! waters, were coming in from the way of Edom, - and the land was filled with the water. Now, all Moab, had heard that the kings had come up to fight against them, - so they came together, from all who could gird on a girdle and upwards, and took their stand at the border. And, when they rose early in the morning, the sun, shone forth upon the waters, - and so the Moabites beheld over against them, the waters, red as blood.


And the ass saw the messenger of Yahweh stationed in the road with his drawn sword in his hand, so the ass turned aside out of the road and went into the field, - and Balaam smote the ass, to make her turn back into the road. But the messenger of Yahweh took his stand, in a hollow pass of the vineyards, - with a fence on this side, and a fence on that side. And when the ass saw the messenger of Yahweh, she squeezed herself against the wall, and squeezed the foot of Balaam against the wall, - and again he smote her. read more.
And the messenger of Yahweh went on further, and took his stand in a narrow place, where there was no way to turn to the right hand or to the left. And, when the ass saw the messenger of Yahweh, she sank down under Balaam, - then was Balaam's anger kindled, and he smote the ass with the staff. And Yahweh opened the mouth of the ass, - and she said unto Balaam - What have I done to thee, that thou hast smitten me, these three times? And Balaam said unto the ass, Surely thou hast been making sport of me, - Would there had been a sword in my hand, for, now, would I have slain thee. Then said the ass unto Balaam - Am not I thine own ass on which thou hast ridden all thy life, until this day? Have I, been wont, to do unto thee, thus? And he said, Nay!


And, a man, came in from Baal-Shalisha, and brought for the man of God firstfruit bread, twenty barley loaves, and garden grain in the husk thereof. And he said - Give to the people, that they may eat. But his attendant said - How can I set this before a hundred men? And he said - Give to the people, that they may eat, for, Thus, saith Yahweh, They are about to eat and to leave remaining. So he set before them, and they did eat and left remaining, according to the word of Yahweh.


Then said Moses unto Aaron - Take the censer and place thereon fire, from off the altar, and put incense thereon , and, going quickly into the assembly, put a propitiatory-covering over them, - for wrath hath gone forth from before Yahweh the plague, hath begun. Then took Aaron, as Moses spake, and ran into the midst of the convocation, and lo! the plague had begun among the people, - so he placed the incense, and put a propitiatory-covering over the people: thus did he take his stand between the dead and the living, - and the plague was restrained. read more.
And so it was that they who died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, - besides them who died over the matter of Korah. And Aaron returned unto Moses, unto the entrance of the tent of meeting, - when, the plague, had been restrained.


And, when, the cloud, removed from off the tent, - lo! Miriam, leprous, like snow! And Aaron turned unto Miriam and lo! -- leprous! Then said Aaron unto Moses, - Oh my lord, do not I beseech thee lay upon us sin, although we have made ourselves foolish, and although we have sinned. Let her not, I beseech thee, remain like the still-born, - which when it is born of its mother, the half of its flesh is consumed. read more.
Then Moses made outcry unto Yahweh, saying, - O GOD, I beseech thee grant healing. I beseech thee unto her. And Yahweh said unto Moses: If, her own father, had, but spat, in her face, would she not, have acknowledged the shame for seven days? Let her shut herself up for seven days, outside the camp, and afterwards, let her be received back. So Miriam shut herself up, outside the camp, for seven days, - and, the people, set not forward, until Miriam had been received back.


And Aaron spake all the words which Yahweh had spoken unto Moses, - and did the signs before the eyes of the people,

Then said Yahweh unto him, yet again - Bring, I pray thee, thy hand, into thy bosom. So he brought his hand, into his bosom, - and then took it out, and lo! his hand, was leprous, - like snow, And he said - Put back thy hand into thy bosom: So he put back his hand into his bosom, - and then took it out of his bosom, and lo it had come again like his own flesh:


Then said Moses unto Aaron - Take the censer and place thereon fire, from off the altar, and put incense thereon , and, going quickly into the assembly, put a propitiatory-covering over them, - for wrath hath gone forth from before Yahweh the plague, hath begun. Then took Aaron, as Moses spake, and ran into the midst of the convocation, and lo! the plague had begun among the people, - so he placed the incense, and put a propitiatory-covering over the people: thus did he take his stand between the dead and the living, - and the plague was restrained. read more.
And so it was that they who died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, - besides them who died over the matter of Korah. And Aaron returned unto Moses, unto the entrance of the tent of meeting, - when, the plague, had been restrained.


So Manoah took the kid, and the meal-offering, and caused them to ascend upon the rock unto Yahweh, who was about to do, wondrously, while Manoah and his wife were looking on. And it came to pass, when the flame ascended from off the altar, towards the heavens, that the messenger of Yahweh ascended in the flame of the altar, - while Manoah and his wife were looking on. Then fell they on their faces, to the earth.


And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Lo! we pray thee, the situation of the city, is good, as, my lord, seeth, - but, the waters, are bad, and, the land, apt to miscarry. And he said - Bring me a new bowl, and put therein, salt. So they brought it unto him; and he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast therein, saith, - and said - Thus, saith Yahweh, I have healed these waters; there shall come from thence, no longer, death or aptness to miscarry. read more.
So the waters were healed, as they remain unto this day, - according to the word of Elisha which he spake.


Now, therefore, take and get ready, one new waggon, and two milch kine, whereon hath never come yoke, - then shall ye fasten the kine in the waggon, and withdraw their calves from them, into the shed; and ye shall take the ark of Yahweh, and place it in the waggon, also, the jewels of gold which ye send back to him as a guilt-offering, shall ye put into a coffer, at the side thereof, - so shall ye let it go, and it shall depart. Then shall ye look - if, by the way of its own boundary, it goeth up to Beth-shemesh, he, it was who caused us this great affliction, - but, if not, then shall we know that it was not, his hand, that smote us, a chance, it was, that befell us. read more.
The men, therefore, did so, and took two milch kine, and fastened them in the waggon, - but, their calves, shut they up in the shed. And they put the ark of Yahweh, into the waggon, - also the coffer, with the mice of gold, and the likenesses of their tumours. And the kine went straight along the road, on the way to Beth-shemesh, yea, along the main highway, they went, lowing as they went, turning not aside, to the right hand or to the left. And, the lords of the Philistines, went along after them, as far as the bounds of Beth-shemesh. Now, they of Beth-shemesh, were reaping their wheat-harvest in the vale, - so they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to meet it. And, the waggon, entered into the field of Joshua, a man of Beth-shemesh, and stood still, there, where also, was a great stone, - so they clave into pieces the planks of the waggon, and, the kine, offered they up as an ascending-sacrifice, unto Yahweh.


Take the staff and gather together the assembly, thou, and Aaron thy brother, then shall ye speak unto the cliff before their eyes and it shall give forth it waters, - so shalt thou bring forth unto them water, out of the cliff, and shalt cause the assembly, and their cattle to drink. And Moses took the staff from before Yahweh, - as he commanded him. And Moses and Aaron gathered together the convocation before the cliff, - and he said unto them: Hear I pray you ye rebels! Out of this cliff, must we bring forth for you water? read more.
And Moses lifted high his hand and smote the cliff with his staff, twice, - and there came forth water in abundance, and the assembly and their cattle, did drink.


And he divided the three hundred men, into three companies, - and put horns into the hands of them all, with empty pitchers, and torches inside the pitchers. Then he said unto them, On me, shall ye look, and, in like manner, shall ye do, - and lo! when I am coming unto the outermost part of the camp, then shall it be, that, as I do, so, shall ye do. When I shall blow with the horn, I and all who are with me, then shall, ye also, round about all the camp, blow with your horns, and shall say, For Yahweh and for Gideon! read more.
So Gideon came, and the hundred men that were with him, unto the outermost part of the camp, at the beginning of the middle watch, they had but, newly set, the watchers, - and they blew with the horns, and brake in pieces the pitchers, that were in their hand. Yea the three companies blew with the horns, and shivered the pitchers, and caught hold - with their left hands - of the torches, while, in their right hands, were the horns, to blow with, - and they cried, A sword for Yahweh, and for Gideon! And they stood still, every man in his place, round about the camp, - and all the host ran and shouted, and fled. When the three hundred blew the horns, Yahweh set the sword of every man, against his neighbour, and against all the host, - and the host fled, as far as the Place of Acacias, towards Zererath, as far as the border of Abel-meholah, by Tabbath.


Now, when they had retired, lo! a messenger of the Lord, appeareth by dream unto Joseph, saying, Arise, take unto thee the child and its mother, and flee into Egypt, and be there, until I tell thee, - for Herod is about to seek the child, to destroy it. And, he, arising, took unto him the child and its mother, by night, and retired into Egypt; and was there, until the death of Herod, - that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt, called I my son. read more.
Then Herod, seeing that he had been mocked by the wise men, was exceedingly enraged, - and sent and slew all the male children that were in Bethlehem, and in all its bounds, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had ascertained from the wise men. Then was fulfilled, that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet, saying: A voice, in Ramah, was heard, weeping and great mourning, - Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, - because they are not. But, when Herod was, dead, lo! a messenger of the Lord, appeareth by dream unto Joseph in Egypt; saying - Arise! and take unto thee the child and its mother, and be journeying into the land of Israel, - for they are dead, who were seeking the life of the child. And, he, arising, took unto him the child and its mother, and entered into the land of Israel. Hearing, however, that, Archelaus, was reigning over Judaea instead of his father Herod, he was afraid, thither, to go, - and so, being instructed by dream, he retired into the parts of Galilee; and came and fixed his dwelling in a city called Nazareth, - that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophets - A Nazarene, shall he be called.


And Moses said unto Joshua - Choose for us men, and go forth, fight with Amalek, - to-morrow, am, I, stationing myself upon the top of the hill, with the staff of God in my hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, to fight with Amalek, - and Moses, Aaron and Hur, went up to the top of the hill. And it shall be when Moses shall lift on high his hands, then shall Israel prevail, but when he shall let down his hands, then shall Amalek prevail. read more.
But, the hands of Moses, were weary, so they took a stone, and put under him, and he sat thereupon, - and, Aaron and Hur, upheld his hands - on this side, one and on that side, one, and so his hands became steady, until the going in of the sun. So Joshua overthrew Amalek and his people, with the edge of the sword.


Now, Naaman, general of the army of the king of Syria, was a great man in presence of his lord, and held in honour, because, by him, had Yahweh given deliverance to Syria, - and, the man, was a hero of valour - but , a leper. Now, the Syrians, had gone out in companies, and had brought back out of the land of Israel, a little maiden, - who became an attendant on the wife of Naaman. And she said unto her mistress, Ah! would that my lord were before the prophet, who is in Samaria! then, would he set him free from his leprosy. read more.
And he went in and told his lord, saying, - Thus and thus, hath spoken the maiden who is of the land of Israel! And the king of Syria said - Go, get in, that I may send a letter unto the king of Israel. So he went, and took in his hand ten talents of silver, and six thousand pieces of gold, and ten changes of raiment. And he brought in the letter unto the king of Israel, saying, Now, therefore, when this letter cometh in unto thee, lo! I have sent unto thee, Naaman my servant, and thou shalt set him free from his leprosy. And it came to pass, when the king of Israel had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said, Am, I, God, to kill and to make alive, that, this, man is sending unto me, to set one free from his leprosy, - but, of a truth, just mark, I pray you, and see, that he, is seeking an occasion, against me. And it was so, when Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had rent his clothes, that he sent unto the king, saying - Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? let him come, I pray thee, unto me, that he may get to know that there is a prophet in Israel. So Naaman came, with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the entrance of the house of Elisha; and Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, - Go and bathe seven times in the Jordan, so shall thy flesh come back to thee, and be thou clean. But Naaman was wroth, and went away, - and said - Lo! I thought, Unto me, will he, come right out, and take his stand, and call on the name of Yahweh his God, and wave his hand towards the spot, and so set free the leper. Are not, Abanah and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not bathe, in them, and be clean? So he turned, and went away in a rage. Then drew near his servants, and spake unto him, and said - My father! if, some great thing, the prophet had commanded thee, wouldst thou not have done it? then, how much rather, when he hath said unto thee, Bathe and be clean? Then went he down, and dipped himself in the Jordan, seven times, according to the word of the man of God: and his flesh came back, as the flesh of a little child, and he was clean. And he returned unto the man of God, he and all his company; and came, and took his stand before him, and said - Lo! I pray thee - I know that there is no God in all the earth, save in Israel, - now, therefore, I pray thee, accept a blessing from thy servant. But he said - By the life of Yahweh, before whom I stand, I will not accept one. And, though he urged him to accept it, yet did he refuse. Then said Naaman, Shall there not, then, I pray thee, be given to thy servant, two mules' burden of earth? For thy servant will henceforth offer neither ascending-offering nor sacrifice to other gods, save only to Yahweh. In this thing, Yahweh grant forgiveness to thy servant, - When my lord entereth the house of Rimmon, to bow down therein, he leaning upon my hand, and so I bow down in the house of Rimmon, when he boweth down in the house of Rimmon, Yahweh, I pray, grant forgiveness to thy servant, in this thing. And he said unto him - Go and prosper! But, when he had gone from him some distance,


and he shall give, on that day, a sign, saying, This, is the sign of which Yahweh hath spoken, - Lo! the altar, is to be rent, and the ashes that are upon thee shall be, poured out! And it came to pass, when the king heard the word of the man of God which he proclaimed against the altar in Bethel, Jeroboam thrust forth his hand, from off the altar, saying - Lay hold of him! and his hand which he had thrust forth against him was dried up, that he could not draw it back to him. Moreover, the altar, was rent, and the ashes poured out from the altar, - according to the sign which the man of God had given, by the word of Yahweh. read more.
Then responded the king and said unto the man of God - Appease, I pray thee, the face of Yahweh thy God, and pray for me, that my hand may be restored unto me. So the man of God appeased the face of Yahweh, and the hand of the king was restored unto him, and became as aforetime.


lo! I am placing a woollen fleece, on the threshing-floor, - if, dew, be on the fleece alone and, on all the ground, it be dry, then shall I know that thou wilt bring salvation, by my hand, unto Israel, as thou hast spoken. And it was so, and he rose up early, on the morrow, and pressed together the fleece, - and wrung out the dew from the fleece, a small bowl full of water. Then said Gideon unto God, Let not thine anger kindle upon me, but let me speak, only this once, - Let me, I pray thee, put to the proof, only this once, with the fleece, I pray thee, let it be dry on the fleece alone, while, on all the ground, there be dew. read more.
And God did so on that night, - and it was dry on the fleece alone, while, on all the ground, there was dew.


and, these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, fell down into the midst of the burning furnace of fire, fast bound. Then, Nebuchadnezzar the king, was amazed, and rose up in haste: he spake and said to his nearest friends - Were there not three men, we cast into the midst of the fire, fast bound? They answered and said to the king, Surely, O king! He answered and said, Lo! I, see four men, unbound, walking in the midst of the fire, and, injury, there is not in them, and, the appearance of the fourth, is like to a son of the gods! read more.
Then did Nebuchadnezzar, draw near, to the door of the burning furnace of fire, he spake and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, ye servants of the most high God, step forth and come hither. Then stepped forth Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, out of the midst of the fire. And - being gathered together - the satraps, the nobles, and the pashas and near friends of the king, saw these men, over whose bodies the fire had, no power, nor was, a hair of their head, singed, neither were, their trousers, disfigured, - nor had, the smell of fire, come upon them.


And Ahab told Jezebel, all that Elijah had done, - and withal, how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. Then sent Jezebel a messenger unto Elijah, saying, - So, let the gods do, and, so, let them add, if, by this time to-morrow, I make not thy life as the life of one of them. And, when he saw that , he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beer-sheba, which belongeth to Judah, - and left his servant there. read more.
But, he himself, went into the wilderness a day's journey, and came and sat down under a certain shrub, - and asked for his life, that he might die, and said - Enough, now, O Yahweh! take away my life, for, no better, am, I, than, my fathers. And, as he lay, and slept, under a certain shrub, lo! a messenger, touching him, who said to him - Rise, eat. So he looked about, and lo! at his head, a cake baked on hot stones, and a cruse of water, - and he did eat and drink, and then went back and lay down. And the messenger of Yahweh came again a second time, and touched him, and said - Rise, eat, - because, too much for thee, is the journey. So he arose, and did eat and drink, - and journeyed, in the strength of that eating, forty days and forty nights, as far as the mountain of God - Horeb.


Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Behold me! ruining down for you bread out of heaven, - and the people shall go out and gather the portion for a day, on its day, that I may prove them whether they will walk in my law, or not. And it shall come to pass on the sixth day, that they shall settle what they shall bring in, - and it shall be twice as much as they gather day by day. So Moses and Aaron said unto all the sons of Israel, - At eventide, then shall ye know that it was, Yahweh, who brought you forth, out of the land of Egypt; read more.
and, in the morning, then shall ye see the glory of Yahweh, in that he hath heard your murmurings against Yahweh, - what then are, we, that ye should murmur against, us? And Moses said - In that Yahweh giveth you in the evening flesh to eat, and bread in the morning, to the full, in that Yahweh heareth your murmurings wherewith ye are murmuring against him, what then are, we? Not against us, do ye murmur but against Yahweh. And Moses said unto Aaron, Say unto all the assembly of the sons of Israel, Draw near, before Yahweh, - for he hath heard your murmurings. And it came to pass, when Aaron spake unto all the assembly of the sons of Israel, then turned they towards the desert, - and lo! the glory of Yahweh, had appeared in the cloud, Then spake Yahweh unto Moses - saying, I have heard the murmurings of the sons of Israel, - speak unto them, saying - Between the two evenings, shall ye eat flesh, and in the morning, shall ye be filled with bread, - so shall ye know that I Yahweh am your God. And it came to pass, in the evening, that there came up quail, and covered the camp, - and in the morning was the outpouring of dew, round about the camp; and when the outpouring of dew went up, then lo! on the face of the desert, a thin flake, thin as hoar-frost on the earth, And when the sons of Israel saw it they said one to another - What is that? For they knew not what "that" was. Then said Moses unto them, "That" is the bread which Yahweh hath given you to eat. This, is the thing which Yahweh hath commanded, Gather ye thereof, each man what he needeth for eating, - an omer a head, by the number of your souls, each man - for them who are in his tent, shall ye take. And the sons of Israel did so, - and gathered, some more, and some less; and when they measured it with the omer, he who had gathered more had nothing over, and he who had gathered less had no lack: each man what he needed for eating, did they gather. And Moses said unto them, - Let, no man leave thereof, until morning. But they hearkened not unto Moses, but certain men left thereof until morning, and it swarmed with worms and become loathsome, - and Moses was wroth with them. Thus then they gathered it morning by morning, each man what he needed for eating, and as soon as the sun waxed hot, so soon it melted. And it came to pass on the sixth day, that they gathered food twice as much, two omers for each one, - so all the princes of the assembly came in, and told Moses. And he said unto them - That is what Yahweh spake. The observance of a holy sabbath to Yahweh, is to-morrow, - what ye would bake, bake and what ye would boil, boil, and all that is left over, put by you to keep until the morning. So they put it by until the morning, as Moses had commanded, - and it gave no unpleasant odour, neither was there a worm, therein. Then said Moses - Eat ye it to-day, for a sabbath, is to-day, unto Yahweh, - to-day, ye shall not find it in the field. Six days, shall ye gather it, - but on the seventh day, a sabbath, it shall not be therein. And it came to pass on the seventh day, that there went forth some of the people to gather, - but they found not. Then said Yahweh unto Moses, - How long have ye refused to keep my commandments and my laws? See because Yahweh hath given you the sabbath, for this cause, is, he, giving you on the sixth day, food for two days, - abide ye every man in his place, let no man go forth from his dwelling, on the seventh day, So the people rested on the seventh day. And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna, - and the same, was like coriander seed white, and the taste thereof, like flat-cake with honey,


And it came to pass, when they fled from before Israel, they, being on the slope of Beth-horon, that, Yahweh, cast down upon them great stones out of the heavens, as far as Azekah, and they died, - more, were they who died by the hailstones, than they whom the sons of Israel slew with the sword.


Then Aaron's sons, Nadab and Abihu, took each man his censer and placed therein fire, and put thereon incense, - and brought near before Yahweh strange fire, which he had not commanded them. Then came there forth fire from before Yahweh, and consumed them, - and they died before Yahweh.


and it came to pass, as, they, were burying a man, that, lo! they saw a troop, so they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha, - and, as soon as the man touched the bones of Elisha, he came to life again, and rose up on his feet.


Now, a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets, made outcry unto Elisha, saying - Thy servant, my husband, is dead, and, thou, knowest that, thy servant, was one who revered Yahweh, - now, the creditor, hath come to take my two boys to himself as bondmen. And Elisha said unto her - What shall I do for thee? tell me what thou, hast, in the house. And she said - Thy maid-servant hath, nothing at all, in the house, save a flask of oil. And he said - Go, ask thee vessels, from without, of all thy neighbours, - empty vessels, let them not be few. read more.
And, when thou hast come in, then shalt thou shut the door behind thee and behind thy sons, and shalt pour out into all these vessels, - and, that which is full, shalt thou set aside. So she went out from his presence, and shut the door behind her, and behind her sons, - they bringing near to her, and she pouring out. And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son - Bring me a vessel more. And he said unto her - There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed. Then came she in, and told the man of God, and he said - Go, sell the oil, and pay thy creditor, - and, thou and thy sons, shall live of the rest.


Now, the Philistines, having taken the ark of God, - brought it in from Eben-ezer, unto Ashdod. And, when the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, - and placed it by the side of Dagon. And, when they of Ashdod rose early on the morrow and entered into the house of Dagon, they looked and lo! Dagon, was lying prostrate on his face to the earth, before the ark of Yahweh, - so they took Dagon and restored him to his place. read more.
And, when they rose up early in the morning of the morrow, lo! Dagon, was lying prostrate on his face to the earth, before the ark of Yahweh - and, the head of Dagon, and both the palms of his hands, had been cut off against the threshold, only, Dagon himself, was left to him.


So it came to pass that, all the earth, was of one manner of speech, - and of one stock of words. And it came to pass as they brake away onwards, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and dwelt there. Then said they, each man to his friend, Come on! let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly, - So the bricks, served them for stone, and bitumen, served them for mortar, read more.
And they said Come on! let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower with its head in the heavens, so let us make for ourselves a name, - lest we be scattered abroad over the face of all the earth. And Yahweh came down, to behold the city, and the tower, - which the sons of men had built. Then said Yahweh: Lo! one people and one manner of speech, have they all, this, then is what they have begun to do, - now, therefore, nothing will be withholden from them which they may plan to do. Come on! let us go down, and there confuse their speech, - that they may not under-stand, each man the speech of his friend. So Yahweh scattered them from thence over the face of all the earth, - and so they left off building the city. For this cause, was the name thereof called Babel; because there, did Yahweh confuse the speech of all the earth, - and, from thence, did Yahweh scatter them abroad, over the face of all the earth.
