Exodus Chapter 25

31"You shall make a lampstand of pure gold. Of hammered work shall the lampstand be made, even its base, its shaft, its cups, its buds, and its flowers, shall be of one piece with it. 32There shall be six branches going out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of its one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of its other side; 33three cups made like almond blossoms in one branch, a bud and a flower; and three cups made like almond blossoms in the other branch, a bud and a flower, so for the six branches going out of the lampstand; 34and in the lampstand four cups made like almond blossoms, its buds and its flowers; 35and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, for the six branches going out of the lampstand. 36Their buds and their branches shall be of one piece with it, all of it one beaten work of pure gold. 37You shall make its lamps seven, and they shall light its lamps to give light to the space in front of it. 38Its snuffers and its snuff dishes shall be of pure gold. 39It shall be made of a talent of pure gold, with all these accessories. 40See that you make them after their pattern, which has been shown to you on the mountain.

Exodus Chapter 26

1"Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains; of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, with cherubim. The work of the skillful workman you shall make them. 2The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the breadth of each curtain four cubits: all the curtains shall have one measure. 3Five curtains shall be coupled together one to another; and the other five curtains shall be coupled one to another. 4You shall make loops of blue on the edge of the one curtain from the edge in the coupling; and likewise you shall make in the edge of the curtain that is outmost in the second coupling. 5You shall make fifty loops in the one curtain, and you shall make fifty loops in the edge of the curtain that is in the second coupling. The loops shall be opposite one to another. 6You shall make fifty clasps of gold, and couple the curtains one to another with the clasps: and the tabernacle shall be a unit.

Section 2

1 Kings Chapter 17

17It happened after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so severe, that there was no breath left in him. 18She said to Elijah, "What have I to do with you, you man of God (Elohim) ? You have come to me to bring my sin to memory, and to kill my son!" 19He said to her, "Give me your son." He took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into the room where he stayed, and laid him on his own bed. 20He cried to TheIAM (Yahweh) , and said, "TheIAM (Yahweh) my God (Elohim) , have you also brought evil on the widow with whom I stay, by killing her son?" 21He stretched himself on the child three times, and cried to TheIAM (Yahweh) , and said, "TheIAM (Yahweh) my God (Elohim) , please let this child's soul come into him again." 22TheIAM (Yahweh) listened to the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. 23Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the room into the house, and delivered him to his mother; and Elijah said, "Behold, your son lives." 24The woman said to Elijah, "Now I know that you are a man of God (Elohim) , and that the word of TheIAM (Yahweh) in your mouth is truth."

1 Kings Chapter 18

1It happened after many days, that the word of TheIAM (Yahweh) came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, "Go, show yourself to Ahab; and I will send rain on the earth." 2Elijah went to show himself to Ahab. The famine was severe in Samaria. 3Ahab called Obadiah, who was over the household. (Now Obadiah feared TheIAM (Yahweh) greatly: 4for it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of TheIAM (Yahweh) , that Obadiah took one hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.) 5Ahab said to Obadiah, "Go through the land, to all the springs of water, and to all the brooks. Perhaps we may find grass and save the horses and mules alive, that we not lose all the animals." 6So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself. 7As Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met him: and he recognized him, and fell on his face, and said, "Is it you, my lord (Adon) Elijah?" 8He answered him, "It is I. Go, tell your lord (Adon) , 'Behold, Elijah is here!'" 9He said, "Wherein have I sinned, that you would deliver your servant into the hand of Ahab, to kill me? 10As TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) lives, there is no nation or kingdom, where my lord (Adon) has not sent to seek you. When they said, 'He is not here,' he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they didn't find you. 11Now you say, 'Go, tell your lord (Adon) , "Behold, Elijah is here."' 12It will happen, as soon as I am gone from you, that the Spirit of TheIAM (Yahweh) will carry you I don't know where; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he can't find you, he will kill me. But I, your servant, have feared TheIAM (Yahweh) from my youth. 13Wasn't it told my lord (Adon) what I did when Jezebel killed the prophets of TheIAM (Yahweh) , how I hid one hundred men of TheIAM (Yahweh) 's prophets with fifty to a cave, and fed them with bread and water? 14Now you say, 'Go, tell your lord (Adon) , "Behold, Elijah is here;"' and he will kill me." 15Elijah said, "As TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies lives, before whom I stand, I will surely show myself to him today." 16So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him; and Ahab went to meet Elijah. 17It happened, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said to him, "Is that you, you troubler of Israel?" 18He answered, "I have not troubled Israel; but you, and your father's house, in that you have forsaken the commandments of TheIAM (Yahweh) , and you have followed the Baals. 19Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel to Mount Carmel, and four hundred fifty of the prophets of Baal, and four hundred of the prophets of the Asherah, who eat at Jezebel's table." 20So Ahab sent to all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together to Mount Carmel. 21Elijah came near to all the people, and said, "How long will you waver between the two sides? If TheIAM (Yahweh) is God (Elohim) , follow him; but if Baal, then follow him." The people answered him not a word. 22Then Elijah said to the people, "I, even I only, am left a prophet of TheIAM (Yahweh) ; but Baal's prophets are four hundred fifty men. 23Let them therefore give us two bulls; and let them choose one bull for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, and put no fire under; and I will dress the other bull, and lay it on the wood, and put no fire under it. 24You call on the name of your god (Elohim) , and I will call on the name of TheIAM (Yahweh) . The God (Elohim) who answers by fire, let him be God (Elohim) ." All the people answered, "It is well said."

Section 4

John Chapter 2

1The third day, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee. Jesus' mother was there. 2Jesus also was invited, with his disciples, to the marriage. 3When the wine ran out, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no wine." 4Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does that have to do with you and me? My hour has not yet come." 5His mother said to the servants, "Whatever he says to you, do it." 6Now there were six water pots of stone set there after the Jews' way of purifying, containing two or three metretes apiece. 7Jesus said to them, "Fill the water pots with water." They filled them up to the brim. 8He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the ruler of the feast." So they took it. 9When the ruler of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and didn't know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the ruler of the feast called the bridegroom, 10and said to him, "Everyone serves the good wine first, and when the guests have drunk freely, then that which is worse. You have kept the good wine until now!" 11This beginning of his signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him. 12After this, he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, his brothers, and his disciples; and they stayed there a few days. 13The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14He found in the temple those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves, and the changers of money sitting. 15He made a whip of cords, and threw all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changers' money, and overthrew their tables. 16To those who sold the doves, he said, "Take these things out of here! Don't make my Father's house a marketplace!" 17His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for your house will eat me up." 18The Jews therefore answered him, "What sign do you show us, seeing that you do these things?" 19Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." 20The Jews therefore said, "It took forty-six years to build this temple! Will you raise it up in three days?" 21But he spoke of the temple of his body. 22When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he said this, and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. 23Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in his name, observing his signs which he did. 24But Jesus didn't trust himself to them, because he knew everyone, 25and because he didn't need for anyone to testify concerning man; for he himself knew what was in man.
