1Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer, and put fire in it, and laid incense on it, and offered strange fire before TheIAM (Yahweh) , which he had not commanded them. 2And fire came forth from before TheIAM (Yahweh) , and devoured them, and they died before TheIAM (Yahweh) . 3Then Moses said to Aaron, "This is what TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke of, saying, 'I will show myself holy to those who come near me, and before all the people I will be glorified.'" Aaron held his peace. 4Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said to them, "Draw near, carry your brothers from before the sanctuary out of the camp." 5So they drew near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp, as Moses had said. 6Moses said to Aaron, and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons, "Don't let the hair of your heads go loose, neither tear your clothes; that you don't die, and that he not be angry with all the congregation: but let your brothers, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which TheIAM (Yahweh) has kindled. 7You shall not go out from the door of the Tent of Meeting, lest you die; for the anointing oil of TheIAM (Yahweh) is on you." They did according to the word of Moses. 8TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to Aaron, saying, 9"Drink no wine nor strong drink, you, nor your sons with you, when you go into the Tent of Meeting, that you don't die: it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations: 10and that you are to make a distinction between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the clean; 11and that you are to teach the children of Israel all the statutes which TheIAM (Yahweh) has spoken to them by Moses." 12Moses spoke to Aaron, and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons who were left, "Take the meal offering that remains of the offerings of TheIAM (Yahweh) made by fire, and eat it without yeast beside the altar; for it is most holy; 13and you shall eat it in a holy place, because it is your portion, and your sons' portion, of the offerings of TheIAM (Yahweh) made by fire: for so I am commanded. 14The waved breast and the heaved thigh you shall eat in a clean place, you, and your sons, and your daughters with you: for they are given as your portion, and your sons' portion, out of the sacrifices of the peace offerings of the children of Israel. 15The heaved thigh and the waved breast they shall bring with the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering before TheIAM (Yahweh) : and it shall be yours, and your sons' with you, as a portion forever; as TheIAM (Yahweh) has commanded." 16Moses diligently inquired about the goat of the sin offering, and, behold, it was burned: and he was angry with Eleazar and with Ithamar, the sons of Aaron who were left, saying, 17"Why haven't you eaten the sin offering in the place of the sanctuary, since it is most holy, and he has given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before TheIAM (Yahweh) ? 18Behold, its blood was not brought into the inner part of the sanctuary: you certainly should have eaten it in the sanctuary, as I commanded." 19Aaron spoke to Moses, "Behold, this day they have offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before TheIAM (Yahweh) ; and such things as these have happened to me: and if I had eaten the sin offering today, would it have been pleasing in the sight of TheIAM (Yahweh) ?" 20When Moses heard that, it was pleasing in his sight.
18All the kings of the nations, sleep in glory, everyone in his own house. 19But you are cast away from your tomb like an abominable branch, clothed with the slain, who are thrust through with the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit; like a dead body trodden under foot. 20You will not join them in burial, because you have destroyed your land. You have killed your people. The seed of evildoers will not be named forever. 21Prepare for slaughter of his children because of the iniquity of their fathers, that they not rise up and possess the earth, and fill the surface of the world with cities. 22"I will rise up against them," says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies, "and cut off from Babylon name and remnant, and son and son's son," says TheIAM (Yahweh) . 23"I will also make it a possession for the porcupine, and pools of water. I will sweep it with the broom of destruction," says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies. 24TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies has sworn, saying, "Surely, as I have thought, so shall it happen; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand: 25that I will break the Assyrian in my land, and tread him under foot on my mountains. Then his yoke will leave them, and his burden leave their shoulders. 26This is the plan that is determined for the whole earth. This is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations. 27For TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies has planned, and who can stop it? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?" 28This burden was in the year that king Ahaz died. 29Don't rejoice, O Philistia, all of you, because the rod that struck you is broken; for out of the serpent's root an adder will emerge, and his fruit will be a fiery (seraphim) flying serpent. 30The firstborn of the poor will eat, and the needy will lie down in safety; and I will kill your root with famine, and your remnant will be killed. 31Howl, gate! Cry, city! You are melted away, Philistia, all of you; for smoke comes out of the north, and there is no straggler in his ranks. 32What will they answer the messengers of the nation? That TheIAM (Yahweh) has founded Zion, and in her the afflicted of his people will take refuge.
1The burden of Moab: for in a night, Ar of Moab is laid waste, and brought to nothing; for in a night Kir of Moab is laid waste, and brought to nothing. 2They have gone up to Bayith, and to Dibon, to the high places, to weep. Moab wails over Nebo and over Medeba. Baldness is on all of their heads. Every beard is cut off. 3In their streets, they clothe themselves in sackcloth. In their streets and on their housetops, everyone wails, weeping abundantly. 4Heshbon cries out with Elealeh. Their voice is heard even to Jahaz. Therefore the armed men of Moab cry aloud. Their souls tremble within them. 5My heart cries out for Moab! Her nobles flee to Zoar, to Eglath Shelishiyah; for they go up by the ascent of Luhith with weeping; for in the way of Horonaim, they raise up a cry of destruction. 6For the waters of Nimrim will be desolate; for the grass has withered away, the tender grass fails, there is no green thing. 7Therefore they will carry away the abundance they have gotten, and that which they have stored up, over the brook of the willows. 8For the cry has gone around the borders of Moab; its wailing to Eglaim, and its wailing to Beer Elim. 9For the waters of Dimon are full of blood; for I will bring yet more on Dimon, a lion on those of Moab who escape, and on the remnant of the land.
14For God (El) speaks once, yes twice, though man pays no attention. 15In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, in slumbering on the bed; 16Then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction, 17That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. 18He keeps back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword. 19He is chastened also with pain on his bed, with continual strife in his bones; 20So that his life abhors bread, and his soul dainty food. 21His flesh is so consumed away, that it can't be seen. His bones that were not seen stick out. 22Yes, his soul draws near to the pit, and his life to the destroyers. 23"If there is beside him an angel, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to show to man what is right for him; 24then He is gracious to him, and says, 'Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom.' 25His flesh shall be fresher than a child's. He returns to the days of his youth. 26He prays to God (Eloah) , and he is favorable to him, so that he sees his face with joy. He restores to man his righteousness. 27He sings before men, and says, 'I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it didn't profit me. 28He has redeemed my soul from going into the pit. My life shall see the light.' 29"Behold, God (El) works all these things, twice, yes three times, with a man, 30to bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of the living. 31Mark well, Job, and listen to me. Hold your peace, and I will speak. 32If you have anything to say, answer me. Speak, for I desire to justify you. 33If not, listen to me. Hold your peace, and I will teach you wisdom."
1Moreover Elihu answered, 2"Hear my words, you wise men. Give ear to me, you who have knowledge. 3For the ear tries words, as the palate tastes food. 4Let us choose for us that which is right. Let us know among ourselves what is good. 5For Job has said, 'I am righteous, God (El) has taken away my right: 6Notwithstanding my right I am considered a liar. My wound is incurable, though I am without disobedience.' 7What man is like Job, who drinks scorn like water, 8Who goes in company with the workers of iniquity, and walks with wicked men? 9For he has said, 'It profits a man nothing that he should delight himself with God (Elohim) .'
54Now when they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed at him with their teeth. 55But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, 56and said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!" 57But they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and rushed at him with one accord. 58They threw him out of the city, and stoned him. The witnesses placed their garments at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59They stoned Stephen as he called out, saying, "Lord (Kurios) Jesus, receive my spirit!" 60He kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, "Lord (Kurios) , don't hold this sin against them!" When he had said this, he fell asleep.
1Saul was consenting to his death. A great persecution arose against the assembly which was in Jerusalem in that day. They were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except for the apostles. 2Devout men buried Stephen, and lamented greatly over him. 3But Saul ravaged the assembly, entering into every house, and dragged both men and women off to prison. 4Therefore those who were scattered abroad went around preaching the word. 5Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and proclaimed to them the Christ. 6The multitudes listened with one accord to the things that were spoken by Philip, when they heard and saw the signs which he did. 7For unclean spirits came out of many of those who had them. They came out, crying with a loud voice. Many who had been paralyzed and lame were healed. 8There was great joy in that city. 9But there was a certain man, Simon by name, who used to practice sorcery in the city, and amazed the people of Samaria, making himself out to be some great one, 10to whom they all listened, from the least to the greatest, saying, "This man is that great power of God." 11They listened to him, because for a long time he had amazed them with his sorceries. 12But when they believed Philip preaching good news concerning the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 13Simon himself also believed. Being baptized, he continued with Philip. Seeing signs and great miracles occurring, he was amazed. 14Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, 15who, when they had come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit; 16for as yet he had fallen on none of them. They had only been baptized into the name of the Lord (Kurios) Jesus. 17Then they laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
