Section 1

Exodus Chapter 15

8With the blast of your nostrils, the waters were piled up. The floods stood upright as a heap. The deeps were congealed in the heart of the sea. 9The enemy said, 'I will pursue (Radaph) . I will overtake. I will divide the spoil. My desire shall be satisfied on them. I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.' 10You blew with your wind. The sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters. 11Who is like you, TheIAM (Yahweh) , among the Gods (El) ? Who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? 12You stretched out your right hand. The earth swallowed them. 13"You, in your loving kindness, have led the people that you have redeemed. You have guided them in your strength to your holy habitation. 14The peoples have heard. They tremble. Pangs have taken hold on the inhabitants of Philistia. 15Then the chiefs of Edom were dismayed. Trembling takes hold of the mighty men of Moab. All the inhabitants of Canaan are melted away. 16Terror and dread falls on them. By the greatness of your arm they are as still as a stone - until your people pass over, TheIAM (Yahweh) , until the people pass over who you have purchased. 17You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, the place, TheIAM (Yahweh) , which you have made for yourself to dwell in; the sanctuary, Lord (Adonai) , which your hands have established. 18TheIAM (Yahweh) shall reign forever and ever." 19For the horses of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and TheIAM (Yahweh) brought back the waters of the sea on them; but the children of Israel walked on dry land in the midst of the sea. 20Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand; and all the women went out after her with tambourines and with dances. 21Miriam answered them, "Sing to TheIAM (Yahweh) , for he has triumphed gloriously. The horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea."

Section 2

1 Kings Chapter 5

1Hiram king of Tyre sent his servants to Solomon; for he had heard that they had anointed (mashach) him king in the place of his father: for Hiram was ever a lover of David. 2Solomon sent to Hiram, saying, 3"You know how that David my father could not build a house for the name of TheIAM (Yahweh) his God (Elohim) for the wars which were about him on every side, until TheIAM (Yahweh) put them under the soles of his feet. 4But now TheIAM (Yahweh) my God (Elohim) has given me rest on every side. There is neither adversary, nor evil occurrence. 5Behold, I purpose to build a house for the name of TheIAM (Yahweh) my God (Elohim) , as TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to David my father, saying, 'Your son, whom I will set on your throne in your place, he shall build the house for my name.' 6Now therefore command that they cut me cedar trees out of Lebanon. My servants shall be with your servants; and I will give you wages for your servants according to all that you shall say. For you know that there is not among us any who knows how to cut timber like the Sidonians." 7It happened, when Hiram heard the words of Solomon, that he rejoiced greatly, and said, "Blessed is TheIAM (Yahweh) this day, who has given to David a wise son over this great people." 8Hiram sent to Solomon, saying, "I have heard the message which you have sent to me. I will do all your desire concerning timber of cedar, and concerning timber of fir. 9My servants shall bring them down from Lebanon to the sea. I will make them into rafts to go by sea to the place that you shall appoint me, and will cause them to be broken up there, and you shall receive them. You shall accomplish my desire, in giving food for my household." 10So Hiram gave Solomon timber of cedar and timber of fir according to all his desire. 11Solomon gave Hiram twenty thousand measures of wheat for food to his household, and twenty measures of pure oil. Solomon gave this to Hiram year by year. 12TheIAM (Yahweh) gave Solomon wisdom, as he promised him; and there was peace between Hiram and Solomon; and they two made a treaty together. 13King Solomon raised a levy out of all Israel; and the levy was thirty thousand men. 14He sent them to Lebanon, ten thousand a month by courses; a month they were in Lebanon, and two months at home; and Adoniram was over the men subject to forced labor. 15Solomon had seventy thousand who bore burdens, and eighty thousand who were stone cutters in the mountains; 16besides Solomon's chief officers who were over the work, three thousand and three hundred, who bore rule over the people who labored in the work. 17The king commanded, and they cut out great stones, costly stones, to lay the foundation of the house with worked stone. 18Solomon's builders and Hiram's builders and the Gebalites did fashion them, and prepared the timber and the stones to build the house.

1 Kings Chapter 6

1It happened in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Ziv, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 2The house which king Solomon built for TheIAM (Yahweh) , its length was sixty cubits, and its breadth twenty [cubits], and its height thirty cubits. 3The porch before the temple of the house, twenty cubits was its length, according to the breadth of the house; [and] ten cubits was its breadth before the house. 4For the house he made windows of fixed lattice work.

Section 3

Ezra Chapter 9

5At the evening offering I arose up from my humiliation, even with my garment and my robe torn; and I fell on my knees, and spread out my hands to TheIAM (Yahweh) my God (Elohim) ; 6and I said, "My God (Elohim) , I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to you, my God (Elohim) ; for our iniquities have increased over our head, and our guiltiness has grown up to the heavens. 7Since the days of our fathers we have been exceeding guilty to this day; and for our iniquities we, our kings, and our priests, have been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, to plunder, and to confusion of face, as it is this day. 8Now for a little moment grace has been shown from TheIAM (Yahweh) our God (Elohim) , to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God (Elohim) may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our slavery. 9For we are bondservants; yet our God (Elohim) has not forsaken us in our slavery, but has extended loving kindness to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God (Elohim) , and to repair its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem. 10"Now, our God (Elohim) , what shall we say after this? For we have forsaken your commandments, 11which you have commanded by your servants the prophets, saying, 'The land, to which you go to possess it, is an unclean land through the uncleanness of the peoples of the lands, through their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their filthiness. 12Now therefore don't give your daughters to their sons, neither take their daughters to your sons, nor seek their peace or their prosperity forever; that you may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children forever.' 13"After all that has come on us for our evil deeds, and for our great guilt, since you, our God (Elohim) , have punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us such a remnant, 14shall we again break your commandments, and join in affinity with the peoples that do these abominations? Wouldn't you be angry with us until you had consumed us, so that there should be no remnant, nor any to escape? 15TheIAM (Yahweh) , the God (Elohim) of Israel, you are righteous; for we are left a remnant that has escaped, as it is this day. Behold, we are before you in our guiltiness; for none can stand before you because of this."

Section 4

Luke Chapter 17

11It happened as he was on his way to Jerusalem, that he was passing along the borders of Samaria and Galilee. 12As he entered into a certain village, ten men who were lepers met him, who stood at a distance. 13They lifted up their voices, saying, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!" 14When he saw them, he said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the priests." It happened that as they went, they were cleansed. 15One of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice. 16He fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks; and he was a Samaritan. 17Jesus answered, "Weren't the ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18Were there none found who returned to give glory to God, except this stranger?" 19Then he said to him, "Get up, and go your way. Your faith has healed you." 20Being asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come, he answered them, "The Kingdom of God doesn't come with observation; 21neither will they say, 'Look, here!' or, 'Look, there!' for behold, the Kingdom of God is within you." 22He said to the disciples, "The days will come, when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. 23They will tell you, 'Look, here!' or 'Look, there!' Don't go away, nor follow after them, 24for as the lightning, when it flashes out of the one part under the sky, shines to the other part under the sky; so will the Son of Man be in his day. 25But first, he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 26As it happened in the days of Noah, even so will it be also in the days of the Son of Man. 27They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ship, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28Likewise, even as it happened in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29but in the day that Lot went out from Sodom, it rained fire and sulfur from the sky, and destroyed them all. 30It will be the same way in the day that the Son of Man is revealed. 31In that day, he who will be on the housetop, and his goods in the house, let him not go down to take them away. Let him who is in the field likewise not turn back. 32Remember Lot's wife! 33Whoever seeks to save his life loses it, but whoever loses his life preserves it. 34I tell you, in that night there will be two people in one bed. The one will be taken, and the other will be left. 35There will be two grinding grain together. One shall be taken, and the other left." 36[Omitted from WEB - Two men will be in the field. One shall be taken, and the other left.] 37They, answering, asked him, "Where, Lord (Kurios) ?" He said to them, "Where the body is, there will the vultures also be gathered together."
