10"'No stranger shall eat of the holy thing: a foreigner living with the priests, or a hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing. 11But if a priest buys a slave, purchased by his money, he shall eat of it; and such as are born in his house, they shall eat of his bread. 12If a priest's daughter is married to an outsider, she shall not eat of the heave offering of the holy things. 13But if a priest's daughter is a widow, or divorced, and has no child, and has returned to her father's house, as in her youth, she may eat of her father's bread: but no stranger shall eat any of it. 14"'If a man eats something holy unwittingly, then he shall add the fifth part of its value to it, and shall give the holy thing to the priest. 15The priests shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel, which they offer to TheIAM (Yahweh) , 16and so cause them to bear the iniquity that brings guilt, when they eat their holy things: for I am TheIAM (Yahweh) who sanctifies them.'" 17TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to Moses, saying, 18"Speak to Aaron, and to his sons, and to all the children of Israel, and say to them, 'Whoever is of the house of Israel, or of the foreigners in Israel, who offers his offering, whether it be any of their vows, or any of their freewill offerings, which they offer to TheIAM (Yahweh) for a burnt offering; 19that you may be accepted, you shall offer a male without blemish, of the bulls, of the sheep, or of the goats. 20But whatever has a blemish, that you shall not offer: for it shall not be acceptable for you. 21Whoever offers a sacrifice of peace offerings to TheIAM (Yahweh) to accomplish a vow, or for a freewill offering, of the herd or of the flock, it shall be perfect to be accepted; no blemish shall be therein. 22Blind, injured, maimed, having a wart, festering, or having a running sore, you shall not offer these to TheIAM (Yahweh) , nor make an offering by fire of them on the altar to TheIAM (Yahweh) . 23Either a bull or a lamb that has any deformity or lacking in his parts, that you may offer for a freewill offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted. 24That which has its testicles bruised, crushed, broken, or cut, you shall not offer to TheIAM (Yahweh) ; neither shall you do thus in your land. 25Neither shall you offer the bread of your God (Elohim) from the hand of a foreigner of any of these; because their corruption is in them. There is a blemish in them. They shall not be accepted for you.'"
13Sing, heavens; and be joyful, earth; and break forth into singing, mountains: for TheIAM (Yahweh) has comforted his people, and will have compassion on his afflicted. 14But Zion said, "TheIAM (Yahweh) has forsaken me, and the Lord (Adonai) has forgotten me." 15"Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, these may forget, yet I will not forget you! 16Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me. 17Your children make haste; your destroyers and those who made you waste shall go forth from you. 18Lift up your eyes all around, and see: all these gather themselves together, and come to you. As I live," says TheIAM (Yahweh) , "you shall surely clothe yourself with them all as with an ornament, and dress yourself with them, like a bride. 19"For, as for your waste and your desolate places, and your land that has been destroyed, surely now you shall be too small for the inhabitants, and those who swallowed you up shall be far away. 20The children of your bereavement shall yet say in your ears, The place is too small for me; give place to me that I may dwell. 21Then you will say in your heart, 'Who has conceived these for me, since I have been bereaved of my children, and am solitary, an exile, and wandering back and forth? Who has brought up these? Behold, I was left alone; these, where were they?'" 22Thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) , "Behold, I will lift up my hand to the nations, and set up my banner to the peoples; and they shall bring your sons in their bosom, and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders. 23Kings shall be your nursing fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers: they shall bow down to you with their faces to the earth, and lick the dust of your feet; and you shall know that I am TheIAM (Yahweh) ; and those who wait for me shall not be disappointed." 24Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captives be delivered? 25But thus says TheIAM (Yahweh) , "Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children. 26I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I, TheIAM (Yahweh) , am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob."
1Thus says TheIAM (Yahweh) , "Where is the bill of your mother's divorce, with which I have put her away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities were you sold, and for your transgressions was your mother put away. 2Why, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it can't redeem? or have I no power to deliver? Behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stink, because there is no water, and die for thirst. 3I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering." 4The Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with words him who is weary: he wakens morning by morning, he wakens my ear to hear as those who are taught. 5The Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away backward. 6I gave my back to the strikers, and my cheeks to those who plucked off the hair; I didn't hide my face from shame and spitting. 7For the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) will help me; therefore I have not been confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be disappointed. 8He is near who justifies me; who will bring charges against me? Let us stand up together: who is my adversary (Baal) ? Let him come near to me. 9Behold, the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) will help me; who is he who shall condemn me? Behold, all they shall wax old as a garment, the moth shall eat them up.
By David. 1I will extol you, TheIAM (Yahweh) , for you have raised me up, and have not made my foes to rejoice over me. 2TheIAM (Yahweh) my God (Elohim) , I cried to you, and you have healed me. 3TheIAM (Yahweh) , you have brought up my soul from Sheol. You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. 4Sing praise to TheIAM (Yahweh) , you saints of his. Give thanks to his holy name. 5For his anger is but for a moment. His favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may stay for the night, but joy comes in the morning. 6As for me, I said in my prosperity, "I shall never be moved." 7You, TheIAM (Yahweh) , when you favored me, made my mountain stand strong; but when you hid your face, I was troubled. 8I cried to you, TheIAM (Yahweh) . To TheIAM (Yahweh) I made supplication: 9"What profit is there in my destruction, if I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise you? Shall it declare your truth? 10Hear, TheIAM (Yahweh) , and have mercy on me. TheIAM (Yahweh) , be my helper." 11You have turned my mourning into dancing for me. You have removed my sackcloth, and clothed me with gladness, 12To the end that my heart may sing praise to you, and not be silent. TheIAM (Yahweh) my God (Elohim) , I will give thanks to you forever!
For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.
33Then the commanding officer came near, arrested him, commanded him to be bound with two chains, and inquired who he was and what he had done. 34Some shouted one thing, and some another, among the crowd. When he couldn't find out the truth because of the noise, he commanded him to be brought into the barracks. 35When he came to the stairs, it happened that he was carried by the soldiers because of the violence of the crowd; 36for the multitude of the people followed after, crying out, "Away with him!" 37As Paul was about to be brought into the barracks, he asked the commanding officer, "May I speak to you?" He said, "Do you know Greek? 38Aren't you then the Egyptian, who before these days stirred up to sedition and led out into the wilderness the four thousand men of the Assassins?" 39But Paul said, "I am a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no insignificant city. I beg you, allow me to speak to the people." 40When he had given him permission, Paul, standing on the stairs, beckoned with his hand to the people. When there was a great silence, he spoke to them in the Hebrew language, saying,
1"Brothers and fathers, listen to the defense which I now make to you." 2When they heard that he spoke to them in the Hebrew language, they were even more quiet. He said, 3"I am indeed a Jew, born in Tarsus of Cilicia, but brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, instructed according to the strict tradition of the law of our fathers, being zealous for God, even as you all are this day. 4I persecuted this Way to the death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women. 5As also the high priest and all the council of the elders testify, from whom also I received letters to the brothers, and traveled to Damascus to bring them also who were there to Jerusalem in bonds to be punished. 6It happened that, as I made my journey, and came close to Damascus, about noon, suddenly there shone from the sky a great light around me. 7I fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to me, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?' 8I answered, 'Who are you, Lord (Kurios) ?' He said to me, 'I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you persecute.' 9"Those who were with me indeed saw the light and were afraid, but they didn't understand the voice of him who spoke to me. 10I said, 'What shall I do, Lord (Kurios) ?' The Lord (Kurios) said to me, 'Arise, and go into Damascus. There you will be told about all things which are appointed for you to do.' 11When I couldn't see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of those who were with me, I came into Damascus. 12One Ananias, a devout man according to the law, well reported of by all the Jews who lived in Damascus, 13came to me, and standing by me said to me, 'Brother Saul, receive your sight!' In that very hour I looked up at him. 14He said, 'The God of our fathers has appointed you to know his will, and to see the Righteous One, and to hear a voice from his mouth. 15For you will be a witness for him to all men of what you have seen and heard. 16Now why do you wait? Arise, be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord (Kurios) .'
