25All the women who were wise-hearted spun with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, the blue, the purple, the scarlet, and the fine linen. 26All the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun the goats' hair. 27The rulers brought the onyx stones, and the stones to be set, for the ephod and for the breastplate; 28and the spice, and the oil for the light, for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense. 29The children of Israel brought a freewill offering to TheIAM (Yahweh) ; every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all the work, which TheIAM (Yahweh) had commanded to be made by Moses. 30Moses said to the children of Israel, "Behold, TheIAM (Yahweh) has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 31He has filled him with the Spirit of God (Elohim) , in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all kinds of workmanship; 32and to make skillful works, to work in gold, in silver, in brass, 33in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving of wood, to work in all kinds of skillful workmanship. 34He has put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. 35He has filled them with wisdom of heart, to work all kinds of workmanship, of the engraver, of the skillful workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of those who do any workmanship, and of those who make skillful works.
1"Bezalel and Oholiab shall work with every wise-hearted man, in whom TheIAM (Yahweh) has put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all the work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that TheIAM (Yahweh) has commanded." 2Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab, and every wise-hearted man, in whose heart TheIAM (Yahweh) had put wisdom, even everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to the work to do it: 3and they received from Moses all the offering which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, with which to make it. They brought yet to him freewill offerings every morning. 4All the wise men, who performed all the work of the sanctuary, each came from his work which they did. 5They spoke to Moses, saying, "The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work which TheIAM (Yahweh) commanded to make." 6Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, "Let neither man nor woman make anything else for the offering for the sanctuary." So the people were restrained from bringing. 7For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.
17Jehoiada made a covenant between TheIAM (Yahweh) and the king and the people, that they should be TheIAM (Yahweh) 's people; between the king also and the people. 18All the people of the land went to the house of Baal, and broke it down; his altars and his images broke they in pieces thoroughly, and killed Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. The priest appointed officers over the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 19He took the captains over hundreds, and the Carites, and the guard, and all the people of the land; and they brought down the king from the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , and came by the way of the gate of the guard to the king's house. He sat on the throne of the kings. 20So all the people of the land rejoiced, and the city was quiet. Athaliah they had slain with the sword at the king's house. 21Jehoash was seven years old when he began to reign.
1In the seventh year of Jehu began Jehoash to reign; and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem: and his mother's name was Zibiah of Beersheba. 2Jehoash did that which was right in the eyes of TheIAM (Yahweh) all his days in which Jehoiada the priest instructed him. 3However the high places were not taken away; the people still sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places. 4Jehoash said to the priests, "All the money of the holy things that is brought into the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , in current money, the money of the persons for whom each man is rated, and all the money that it comes into any man's heart to bring into the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , 5let the priests take it to them, every man from his acquaintance; and they shall repair the breaches of the house, wherever any breach shall be found." 6But it was so, that in the three and twentieth year of king Jehoash the priests had not repaired the breaches of the house. 7Then king Jehoash called for Jehoiada the priest, and for the [other] priests, and said to them, "Why don't you repair the breaches of the house? Now therefore take no more money from your treasurers, but deliver it for the breaches of the house." 8The priests consented that they should take no [more] money from the people, neither repair the breaches of the house. 9But Jehoiada the priest took a chest, and bored a hole in its lid, and set it beside the altar, on the right side as one comes into the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) : and the priests who kept the threshold put therein all the money that was brought into the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 10It was so, when they saw that there was much money in the chest, that the king's scribe and the high priest came up, and they put up in bags and counted the money that was found in the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 11They gave the money that was weighed out into the hands of those who did the work, who had the oversight of the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) : and they paid it out to the carpenters and the builders, who worked on the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , 12and to the masons and the stone cutters, and for buying timber and cut stone to repair the breaches of the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , and for all that was laid out for the house to repair it. 13But there were not made for the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) cups of silver, snuffers, basins, trumpets, any vessels of gold, or vessels of silver, of the money that was brought into the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) ; 14for they gave that to those who did the work, and repaired therewith the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 15Moreover they didn't demand an accounting from the men into whose hand they delivered the money to give to those who did the work; for they dealt faithfully. 16The money for the trespass offerings, and the money for the sin offerings, was not brought into the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) : it was the priests'. 17Then Hazael king of Syria went up, and fought against Gath, and took it; and Hazael set his face to go up to Jerusalem. 18Jehoash king of Judah took all the holy things that Jehoshaphat and Jehoram and Ahaziah, his fathers, kings of Judah, had dedicated, and his own holy things, and all the gold that was found in the treasures of the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , and of the king's house, and sent it to Hazael king of Syria: and he went away from Jerusalem. 19Now the rest of the acts of Joash, and all that he did, aren't they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 20His servants arose, and made a conspiracy, and struck Joash at the house of Millo, [on the way] that goes down to Silla. 21For Jozacar the son of Shimeath, and Jehozabad the son of Shomer, his servants, struck him, and he died; and they buried him with his fathers in the city of David: and Amaziah his son reigned in his place.
1After this Job opened his mouth, and cursed the day of his birth. 2Job answered: 3"Let the day perish in which I was born, the night which said, 'There is a boy conceived.' 4Let that day be darkness. Don't let God (Eloah) from above seek for it, neither let the light shine on it. 5Let darkness and the shadow of death claim it for their own. Let a cloud dwell on it. Let all that makes black the day terrify it. 6As for that night, let thick darkness seize on it. Let it not rejoice among the days of the year. Let it not come into the number of the months. 7Behold, let that night be barren. Let no joyful voice come therein. 8Let them curse it who curse the day, who are ready to rouse up leviathan. 9Let the stars of its twilight be dark. Let it look for light, but have none, neither let it see the eyelids of the morning, 10because it didn't shut up the doors of my mother's womb, nor did it hide trouble from my eyes. 11"Why didn't I die from the womb? Why didn't I give up the spirit when my mother bore me? 12Why did the knees receive me? Or why the breast, that I should nurse? 13For now should I have lain down and been quiet. I should have slept, then I would have been at rest, 14with kings and counselors of the earth, who built up waste places for themselves; 15or with princes who had gold, who filled their houses with silver: 16or as a hidden untimely birth I had not been, as infants who never saw light. 17There the wicked cease from troubling. There the weary are at rest. 18There the prisoners are at ease together. They don't hear the voice of the taskmaster. 19The small and the great are there. The servant is free from his master (Adon) . 20"Why is light given to him who is in misery, life to the bitter in soul, 21Who long for death, but it doesn't come; and dig for it more than for hidden treasures, 22who rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave? 23Why is light given to a man whose way is hidden, whom God (Eloah) has hedged in? 24For my sighing comes before I eat. My groanings are poured out like water. 25For the thing which I fear comes on me, That which I am afraid of comes to me. 26I am not at ease, neither am I quiet, neither have I rest; but trouble comes."
1Then six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, who had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. 2So they made him a supper there. Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with him. 3Mary, therefore, took a pound of ointment of pure nard, very precious, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the ointment. 4Then Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, one of his disciples, who would betray him, said, 5"Why wasn't this ointment sold for three hundred denarii, and given to the poor?" 6Now he said this, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and having the money box, used to steal what was put into it. 7But Jesus said, "Leave her alone. She has kept this for the day of my burial. 8For you always have the poor with you, but you don't always have me." 9A large crowd therefore of the Jews learned that he was there, and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. 10But the chief priests conspired to put Lazarus to death also, 11because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus. 12On the next day a great multitude had come to the feast. When they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13they took the branches of the palm trees, and went out to meet him, and cried out, "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord (Kurios) , the King of Israel!" 14Jesus, having found a young donkey, sat on it. As it is written, 15"Don't be afraid, daughter of Zion. Behold, your King comes, sitting on a donkey's colt." 16His disciples didn't understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about him, and that they had done these things to him. 17The multitude therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb, and raised him from the dead, was testifying about it. 18For this cause also the multitude went and met him, because they heard that he had done this sign. 19The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, "See how you accomplish nothing. Behold, the world has gone after him." 20Now there were certain Greeks among those that went up to worship at the feast. 21These, therefore, came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, "Sir (Kurios) , we want to see Jesus." 22Philip came and told Andrew, and in turn, Andrew came with Philip, and they told Jesus. 23Jesus answered them, "The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24Most certainly I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25He who loves his life will lose it. He who hates his life in this world will keep it to eternal life. 26If anyone serves me, let him follow me. Where I am, there will my servant also be. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him. 27"Now my soul is troubled. What shall I say? 'Father, save me from this time?' But for this cause I came to this time. 28Father, glorify your name!" Then there came a voice out of the sky, saying, "I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again." 29The multitude therefore, who stood by and heard it, said that it had thundered. Others said, "An angel has spoken to him." 30Jesus answered, "This voice hasn't come for my sake, but for your sakes. 31Now is the judgment of this world. Now the prince of this world will be cast out. 32And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself." 33But he said this, signifying by what kind of death he should die. 34The multitude answered him, "We have heard out of the law that the Christ remains forever. How do you say, 'The Son of Man must be lifted up?' Who is this Son of Man?" 35Jesus therefore said to them, "Yet a little while the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, that darkness doesn't overtake you. He who walks in the darkness doesn't know where he is going. 36While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become children of light." Jesus said these things, and he departed and hid himself from them. 37But though he had done so many signs before them, yet they didn't believe in him, 38that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, "Lord (Kurios) , who has believed our report? To whom has the arm of the Lord (Kurios) been revealed?" 39For this cause they couldn't believe, for Isaiah said again, 40"He has blinded their eyes and he hardened their heart, lest they should see with their eyes, and perceive with their heart, and would turn, and I would heal them." 41Isaiah said these things when he saw his glory, and spoke of him. 42Nevertheless even of the rulers many believed in him, but because of the Pharisees they didn't confess it, so that they wouldn't be put out of the synagogue, 43for they loved (Agapeo) men's praise more than God's praise. 44Jesus cried out and said, "Whoever believes in me, believes not in me, but in him who sent me. 45He who sees me sees him who sent me. 46I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in the darkness. 47If anyone listens to my sayings, and doesn't believe, I don't judge him. For I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 48He who rejects me, and doesn't receive my sayings, has one who judges him. The word that I spoke, the same will judge him in the last day. 49For I spoke not from myself, but the Father who sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50I know that his commandment is eternal life. The things therefore which I speak, even as the Father has said to me, so I speak."
