Section 1

Exodus Chapter 6

20Amram took Jochebed his father's sister to himself as wife; and she bore him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram were a hundred and thirty-seven years. 21The sons of Izhar: Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri. 22The sons of Uzziel: Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Sithri. 23Aaron took Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, as his wife; and she bore him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 24The sons of Korah: Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korahites. 25Eleazar Aaron's son took one of the daughters of Putiel as his wife; and she bore him Phinehas. These are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites according to their families. 26These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom TheIAM (Yahweh) said, "Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their armies." 27These are those who spoke to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt. These are that Moses and Aaron. 28It happened on the day when TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, 29that TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to Moses, saying, "I am TheIAM (Yahweh) . Speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I speak to you." 30Moses said before TheIAM (Yahweh) , "Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh listen to me?"

Exodus Chapter 7

1TheIAM (Yahweh) said to Moses, "Behold, I have made you as God (Elohim) to Pharaoh; and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet. 2You shall speak all that I command you; and Aaron your brother shall speak to Pharaoh, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land. 3I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt. 4But Pharaoh will not listen to you, and I will lay my hand on Egypt, and bring forth my armies, my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. 5The Egyptians shall know that I am TheIAM (Yahweh) , when I stretch forth my hand on Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them." 6Moses and Aaron did so. As TheIAM (Yahweh) commanded them, so they did. 7Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty-three years old, when they spoke to Pharaoh.

Section 2

2 Samuel Chapter 16

5When king David came to Bahurim, behold, a man of the family of the house of Saul came out, whose name was Shimei, the son of Gera. He came out, and cursed still as he came. 6He cast stones at David, and at all the servants of king David, and all the people and all the mighty men were on his right hand and on his left. 7Shimei said when he cursed, "Be gone, be gone, you man of blood, and base fellow! 8TheIAM (Yahweh) has returned on you all the blood of the house of Saul, in whose place you have reigned! TheIAM (Yahweh) has delivered the kingdom into the hand of Absalom your son! Behold, you are caught by your own mischief, because you are a man of blood!" 9Then Abishai the son of Zeruiah said to the king, "Why should this dead dog curse my lord (Adon) the king? Please let me go over and take off his head." 10The king said, "What have I to do with you, you sons of Zeruiah? Because he curses, and because TheIAM (Yahweh) has said to him, 'Curse David;' who then shall say, 'Why have you done so?'" 11David said to Abishai, and to all his servants, "Behold, my son, who came forth from my bowels, seeks my life. How much more this Benjamite, now? Leave him alone, and let him curse; for TheIAM (Yahweh) has invited him. 12It may be that TheIAM (Yahweh) will look on the wrong done to me, and that TheIAM (Yahweh) will repay me good for the cursing of me today." 13So David and his men went by the way; and Shimei went along on the hillside opposite him, and cursed as he went, threw stones at him, and threw dust. 14The king, and all the people who were with him, came weary; and he refreshed himself there. 15Absalom, and all the people, the men of Israel, came to Jerusalem, and Ahithophel with him. 16It happened, when Hushai the Archite, David's friend, had come to Absalom, that Hushai said to Absalom, "Long live the king! Long live the king!" 17Absalom said to Hushai, "Is this your kindness to your friend? Why didn't you go with your friend?" 18Hushai said to Absalom, "No; but whoever TheIAM (Yahweh) , and this people, and all the men of Israel have chosen, his will I be, and with him I will stay. 19Again, whom should I serve? Shouldn't I serve in the presence of his son? As I have served in your father's presence, so will I be in your presence." 20Then Absalom said to Ahithophel, "Give your counsel what we shall do." 21Ahithophel said to Absalom, "Go in to your father's concubines, that he has left to keep the house. Then all Israel will hear that you are abhorred by your father. Then the hands of all who are with you will be strong." 22So they spread Absalom a tent on the top of the house; and Absalom went in to his father's concubines in the sight of all Israel. 23The counsel of Ahithophel, which he gave in those days, was as if a man inquired at the oracle of God (Elohim) : so was all the counsel of Ahithophel both with David and with Absalom.

2 Samuel Chapter 17

1Moreover Ahithophel said to Absalom, "Let me now choose twelve thousand men, and I will arise and pursue (Radaph) after David tonight. 2I will come on him while he is weary and exhausted, and will make him afraid. All the people who are with him shall flee. I will strike the king only; 3and I will bring back all the people to you. The man whom you seek is as if all returned. All the people shall be in peace." 4The saying pleased Absalom well, and all the elders of Israel. 5Then Absalom said, "Now call Hushai the Archite also, and let us hear likewise what he says." 6When Hushai was come to Absalom, Absalom spoke to him, saying, "Ahithophel has spoken like this. Shall we do what he says? If not, speak up." 7Hushai said to Absalom, "The counsel that Ahithophel has given this time is not good."

Section 3

2 Chronicles Chapter 34

26But to the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of TheIAM (Yahweh) , thus you shall tell him, 'Thus says TheIAM (Yahweh) , the God (Elohim) of Israel: "As touching the words which you have heard, 27because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before God (Elohim) , when you heard his words against this place, and against its inhabitants, and have humbled yourself before me, and have torn your clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard you," says TheIAM (Yahweh) . 28"Behold, I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace, neither shall your eyes see all the evil that I will bring on this place, and on its inhabitants."'" They brought back word to the king. 29Then the king sent and gathered together all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem. 30The king went up to the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , and all the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests, and the Levites, and all the people, both great and small: and he read in their ears all the words of the book of the covenant that was found in the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 31The king stood in his place, and made a covenant before TheIAM (Yahweh) , to walk after TheIAM (Yahweh) , and to keep his commandments, and his testimonies, and his statutes, with all his heart, and with all his soul, to perform the words of the covenant that were written in this book. 32He caused all who were found in Jerusalem and Benjamin to stand [to it]. The inhabitants of Jerusalem did according to the covenant of God (Elohim) , the God (Elohim) of their fathers. 33Josiah took away all the abominations out of all the countries that pertained to the children of Israel, and made all who were found in Israel to serve, even to serve TheIAM (Yahweh) their God (Elohim) . All his days they didn't depart from following TheIAM (Yahweh) , the God (Elohim) of their fathers.

2 Chronicles Chapter 35

1Josiah kept a Passover to TheIAM (Yahweh) in Jerusalem: and they killed the Passover on the fourteenth [day] of the first month. 2He set the priests in their offices, and encouraged them to the service of the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 3He said to the Levites who taught all Israel, who were holy to TheIAM (Yahweh) , "Put the holy ark in the house which Solomon the son of David king of Israel built. There shall no more be a burden on your shoulders. Now serve TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , and his people Israel. 4Prepare yourselves after your fathers' houses by your divisions, according to the writing of David king of Israel, and according to the writing of Solomon his son. 5Stand in the holy place according to the divisions of the fathers' houses of your brothers the children of the people, and [let there be for each] a portion of a fathers' house of the Levites. 6Kill the Passover, and sanctify yourselves, and prepare for your brothers, to do according to the word of TheIAM (Yahweh) by Moses."

Section 4

Luke Chapter 9

1He called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. 2He sent them forth to preach the Kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 3He said to them, "Take nothing for your journey - neither staffs, nor wallet, nor bread, nor money; neither have two coats apiece. 4Into whatever house you enter, stay there, and depart from there. 5As many as don't receive you, when you depart from that city, shake off even the dust from your feet for a testimony against them." 6They departed, and went throughout the villages, preaching the Good News, and healing everywhere. 7Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him; and he was very perplexed, because it was said by some that John had risen from the dead, 8and by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the old prophets had risen again. 9Herod said, "John I beheaded, but who is this, about whom I hear such things?" He sought to see him. 10The apostles, when they had returned, told him what things they had done. He took them, and withdrew apart to a deserted place of a city called Bethsaida. 11But the multitudes, perceiving it, followed him. He welcomed them, and spoke to them of the Kingdom of God, and he cured those who needed healing. 12The day began to wear away; and the twelve came, and said to him, "Send the multitude away, that they may go into the surrounding villages and farms, and lodge, and get food, for we are here in a deserted place." 13But he said to them, "You give them something to eat." They said, "We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we should go and buy food for all these people." 14For they were about five thousand men. He said to his disciples, "Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each." 15They did so, and made them all sit down. 16He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to the sky, he blessed them, and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude. 17They ate, and were all filled. They gathered up twelve baskets of broken pieces that were left over.
