29It happened, when Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mountain, that Moses didn't know that the skin of his face shone by reason of his speaking with him. 30When Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come near him. 31Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned to him; and Moses spoke to them. 32Afterward all the children of Israel came near, and he gave them all of the commandments that TheIAM (Yahweh) had spoken with him on Mount Sinai. 33When Moses was done speaking with them, he put a veil on his face. 34But when Moses went in before TheIAM (Yahweh) to speak with him, he took the veil off, until he came out; and he came out, and spoke to the children of Israel that which he was commanded. 35The children of Israel saw Moses' face, that the skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the veil on his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
1Moses assembled all the congregation of the children of Israel, and said to them, "These are the words which TheIAM (Yahweh) has commanded, that you should do them. 2'Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be a holy day for you, a Sabbath of solemn rest to TheIAM (Yahweh) : whoever does any work in it shall be put to death. 3You shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations on the Sabbath day.'"
6Then he wrote a letter the second time to them, saying, "If you are on my side, and if you will listen to my voice, take the heads of the men your master (Adon) 's sons, and come to me to Jezreel by tomorrow this time." Now the king's sons, being seventy persons, were with the great men of the city, who brought them up. 7It happened, when the letter came to them, that they took the king's sons, and killed them, even seventy persons, and put their heads in baskets, and sent them to him to Jezreel. 8A messenger came, and told him, "They have brought the heads of the king's sons." He said, "Lay them in two heaps at the entrance of the gate until the morning." 9It happened in the morning, that he went out, and stood, and said to all the people, "You are righteous. Behold, I conspired against my master (Adon) , and killed him; but who struck all these? 10Know now that nothing shall fall to the earth of the word of TheIAM (Yahweh) , which TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke concerning the house of Ahab. For TheIAM (Yahweh) has done that which he spoke by his servant Elijah." 11So Jehu struck all that remained of the house of Ahab in Jezreel, with all his great men, his familiar friends, and his priests, until he left him none remaining. 12He arose and departed, and went to Samaria. As he was at the shearing house of the shepherds on the way, 13Jehu met with the brothers of Ahaziah king of Judah, and said, "Who are you?" They answered, "We are the brothers of Ahaziah. We are going down to greet the children of the king and the children of the queen." 14He said, "Take them alive!" They took them alive, and killed them at the pit of the shearing house, even forty-two men. He didn't leave any of them. 15When he had departed from there, he met Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him. He greeted him, and said to him, "Is your heart right, as my heart is with your heart?" Jehonadab answered, "It is." "If it is, give me your hand." He gave him his hand; and he took him up to him into the chariot. 16He said, "Come with me, and see my zeal for TheIAM (Yahweh) ." So they made him ride in his chariot. 17When he came to Samaria, he struck all who remained to Ahab in Samaria, until he had destroyed him, according to the word of TheIAM (Yahweh) , which he spoke to Elijah. 18Jehu gathered all the people together, and said to them, "Ahab served Baal a little; but Jehu will serve him much. 19Now therefore call to me all the prophets of Baal, all of his worshippers, and all of his priests. Let none be absent; for I have a great sacrifice to Baal. Whoever is absent, he shall not live." But Jehu did it in subtlety, intending that he might destroy the worshippers of Baal. 20Jehu said, "Sanctify a solemn assembly for Baal!" They proclaimed it. 21Jehu sent through all Israel; and all the worshippers of Baal came, so that there was not a man left that didn't come. They came into the house of Baal; and the house of Baal was filled from one end to another. 22He said to him who was over the vestry, "Bring out robes for all the worshippers of Baal!" He brought robes out to them. 23Jehu went with Jehonadab the son of Rechab into the house of Baal. Then he said to the worshippers of Baal, "Search, and look that there are here with you none of the servants of TheIAM (Yahweh) , but the worshippers of Baal only." 24They went in to offer sacrifices and burnt offerings. Now Jehu had appointed him eighty men outside, and said, "If any of the men whom I bring into your hands escape, [he who lets him go], his life shall be for the life of him." 25It happened, as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, that Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, "Go in, and kill them! Let none escape." They struck them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast them out, and went to the city of the house of Baal. 26They brought out the pillars that were in the house of Baal, and burned them. 27They broke down the pillar of Baal, and broke down the house of Baal, and made it a latrine, to this day. 28Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel. 29However from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, with which he made Israel to sin, Jehu didn't depart from after them, [to wit], the golden calves that were in Bethel, and that were in Dan. 30TheIAM (Yahweh) said to Jehu, "Because you have done well in executing that which is right in my eyes, [and] have done to the house of Ahab according to all that was in my heart, your sons of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel." 31But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of TheIAM (Yahweh) , the God (Elohim) of Israel, with all his heart. He didn't depart from the sins of Jeroboam, with which he made Israel to sin.
1There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job. That man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God (Elohim) , and turned away from evil. 2There were born to him seven sons and three daughters. 3His possessions also were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred female donkeys, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the children of the east. 4His sons went and held a feast in the house of each one on his birthday; and they sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. 5It was so, when the days of their feasting had run their course, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said, "It may be that my sons have sinned, and renounced God (Elohim) in their hearts." Job did so continually. 6Now it happened on the day when God (Elohim) 's sons came to present themselves before TheIAM (Yahweh) , that Satan also came among them. 7TheIAM (Yahweh) said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Then Satan answered TheIAM (Yahweh) , and said, "From going back and forth in the earth, and from walking up and down in it." 8TheIAM (Yahweh) said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant, Job? For there is none like him in the earth, a blameless and an upright man, one who fears God (Elohim) , and turns away from evil." 9Then Satan answered TheIAM (Yahweh) , and said, "Does Job fear God (Elohim) for nothing? 10Haven't you made a hedge around him, and around his house, and around all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11But put forth your hand now, and touch all that he has, and he will renounce you to your face." 12TheIAM (Yahweh) said to Satan, "Behold, all that he has is in your power. Only on himself don't put forth your hand." So Satan went forth from the presence of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 13It fell on a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house, 14that there came a messenger to Job, and said, "The oxen were plowing, and the donkeys feeding beside them, 15and the Sabeans attacked, and took them away. Yes, they have killed the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you." 16While he was still speaking, there also came another, and said, "The fire of God (Elohim) has fallen from the sky, and has burned up the sheep and the servants, and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you." 17While he was still speaking, there came also another, and said, "The Chaldeans made three bands, and swept down on the camels, and have taken them away, yes, and killed the servants with the edge of the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell you." 18While he was still speaking, there came also another, and said, "Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house, 19and behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young men, and they are dead. I alone have escaped to tell you." 20Then Job arose, and tore his robe, and shaved his head, and fell down on the ground, and worshiped. 21He said, "Naked I came out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return there. TheIAM (Yahweh) gave, and TheIAM (Yahweh) has taken away. Blessed be the name of TheIAM (Yahweh) ." 22In all this, Job did not sin, nor charge God (Elohim) with wrongdoing.
32Therefore when Mary came to where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying to him, "Lord (Kurios) , if you would have been here, my brother wouldn't have died." 33When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews weeping who came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, 34and said, "Where have you laid him?" They told him, "Lord (Kurios) , come and see." 35Jesus wept. 36The Jews therefore said, "See how much affection he had for him!" 37Some of them said, "Couldn't this man, who opened the eyes of him who was blind, have also kept this man from dying?" 38Jesus therefore, again groaning in himself, came to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone lay against it. 39Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to him, "Lord (Kurios) , by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days." 40Jesus said to her, "Didn't I tell you that if you believed, you would see God's glory?" 41So they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, "Father, I thank you that you listened to me. 42I know that you always listen to me, but because of the multitude that stands around I said this, that they may believe that you sent me." 43When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" 44He who was dead came out, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Free him, and let him go." 45Therefore many of the Jews, who came to Mary and saw what Jesus did, believed in him. 46But some of them went away to the Pharisees, and told them the things which Jesus had done. 47The chief priests therefore and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said, "What are we doing? For this man does many signs. 48If we leave him alone like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation." 49But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing at all, 50nor do you consider that it is advantageous for us that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation not perish." 51Now he didn't say this of himself, but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation, 52and not for the nation only, but that he might also gather together into one the children of God who are scattered abroad. 53So from that day forward they took counsel that they might put him to death. 54Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews, but departed from there into the country near the wilderness, to a city called Ephraim. He stayed there with his disciples.
