1Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took [men]: 2and they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred fifty princes of the congregation, called to the assembly, men of renown; 3and they assembled themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said to them, "You take too much on yourself, since all the congregation are holy, everyone of them, and TheIAM (Yahweh) is among them: why then lift yourselves up above the assembly of TheIAM (Yahweh) ?" 4When Moses heard it, he fell on his face: 5and he spoke to Korah and to all his company, saying, "In the morning TheIAM (Yahweh) will show who are his, and who is holy, and will cause him to come near to him: even him whom he shall choose he will cause to come near to him. 6Do this: take censers, Korah, and all his company; 7and put fire in them, and put incense on them before TheIAM (Yahweh) tomorrow: and it shall be that the man whom TheIAM (Yahweh) chooses, he shall be holy. You have gone too far, you sons of Levi!" 8Moses said to Korah, "Hear now, you sons of Levi! 9Is it a small thing to you, that the God (Elohim) of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself, to do the service of the tabernacle of TheIAM (Yahweh) , and to stand before the congregation to minister to them; 10and that he has brought you near, and all your brothers the sons of Levi with you? and do you seek the priesthood also? 11Therefore you and all your company are gathered together against TheIAM (Yahweh) : and Aaron, what is he that you murmur against him?" 12Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab; and they said, "We won't come up: 13is it a small thing that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, but you must also make yourself a prince over us? 14Moreover you haven't brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: will you put out the eyes of these men? We won't come up." 15Moses was very angry, and said to TheIAM (Yahweh) , "Don't respect their offering: I have not taken one donkey from them, neither have I hurt one of them." 16Moses said to Korah, "You and all your company go before TheIAM (Yahweh) , you, and they, and Aaron, tomorrow: 17and each man take his censer, and put incense on them, and each man bring before TheIAM (Yahweh) his censer, two hundred fifty censers; you also, and Aaron, each his censer." 18They each took his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon, and stood at the door of the Tent of Meeting with Moses and Aaron. 19Korah assembled all the congregation against them to the door of the Tent of Meeting: and the glory of TheIAM (Yahweh) appeared to all the congregation. 20TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 21"Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment!" 22They fell on their faces, and said, "God (El) , the God (Elohim) of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and will you be angry with all the congregation?" 23TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to Moses, saying, 24"Speak to the congregation, saying, 'Get away from around the tent of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram!'" 25Moses rose up and went to Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him. 26He spoke to the congregation, saying, "Depart, please, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest you be consumed in all their sins!" 27So they went away from the tent of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood at the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little ones. 28Moses said, "Hereby you shall know that TheIAM (Yahweh) has sent me to do all these works; for [I have] not [done them] of my own mind. 29If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then TheIAM (Yahweh) hasn't sent me. 30But if TheIAM (Yahweh) make a new thing, and the ground open its mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain to them, and they go down alive into Sheol; then you shall understand that these men have despised TheIAM (Yahweh) ." 31It happened, as he made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground split apart that was under them; 32and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who appertained to Korah, and all their goods. 33So they, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into Sheol: and the earth closed on them, and they perished from among the assembly. 34All Israel that were around them fled at the cry of them; for they said, "Lest the earth swallow us up!" 35Fire came forth from TheIAM (Yahweh) , and devoured the two hundred fifty men who offered the incense. 36TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to Moses, saying, 37"Speak to Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter the fire yonder; for they are holy, 38even the censers of these sinners against their own lives; and let them be made beaten plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before TheIAM (Yahweh) ; therefore they are holy; and they shall be a sign to the children of Israel." 39Eleazar the priest took the bronze censers, which those who were burnt had offered; and they beat them out for a covering of the altar, 40to be a memorial to the children of Israel, to the end that no stranger, who isn't of the seed of Aaron, comes near to burn incense before TheIAM (Yahweh) ; that he not be as Korah, and as his company: as TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to him by Moses. 41But on the next day all the congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, "You have killed TheIAM (Yahweh) 's people!" 42It happened, when the congregation was assembled against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the Tent of Meeting: and behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of TheIAM (Yahweh) appeared. 43Moses and Aaron came to the front of the Tent of Meeting. 44TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to Moses, saying, 45"Get away from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment!" They fell on their faces. 46Moses said to Aaron, "Take your censer, and put fire from off the altar in it, and lay incense on it, and carry it quickly to the congregation, and make atonement for them; for wrath has gone out from TheIAM (Yahweh) ! The plague has begun." 47Aaron did as Moses said, and ran into the midst of the assembly; and behold, the plague has begun among the people: and he put on the incense, and made atonement for the people. 48He stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed. 49Now those who died by the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, besides those who died about the matter of Korah. 50Aaron returned to Moses to the door of the Tent of Meeting: and the plague was stayed.
4It happened the second day after he had killed Gedaliah, and no man knew it, 5that there came men from Shechem, from Shiloh, and from Samaria, even eighty men, having their beards shaved and their clothes torn, and having cut themselves, with meal offerings and frankincense in their hand, to bring them to the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 6Ishmael the son of Nethaniah went forth from Mizpah to meet them, weeping all along as he went: and it happened, as he met them, he said to them, Come to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam. 7It was so, when they came into the midst of the city, that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah killed them, [and cast them] into the midst of the pit, he, and the men who were with him. 8But ten men were found among those who said to Ishmael, Don't kill us; for we have stores hidden in the field, of wheat, and of barley, and of oil, and of honey. So he stopped, and didn't kill them among their brothers. 9Now the pit in which Ishmael cast all the dead bodies of the men whom he had killed, by the side of Gedaliah (the same was who which Asa the king had made for fear of Baasha king of Israel), Ishmael the son of Nethaniah filled it with those who were killed. 10Then Ishmael carried away captive all the residue of the people who were in Mizpah, even the king's daughters, and all the people who remained in Mizpah, whom Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had committed to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam; Ishmael the son of Nethaniah carried them away captive, and departed to go over to the children of Ammon. 11But when Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, heard of all the evil that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah had done, 12then they took all the men, and went to fight with Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and found him by the great waters that are in Gibeon. 13Now it happened that, when all the people who were with Ishmael saw Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, then they were glad. 14So all the people who Ishmael had carried away captive from Mizpah turned about and came back, and went to Johanan the son of Kareah. 15But Ishmael the son of Nethaniah escaped from Johanan with eight men, and went to the children of Ammon. 16Then took Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, all the remnant of the people whom he had recovered from Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, from Mizpah, after that he had killed Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, [to wit], the men of war, and the women, and the children, and the eunuchs, whom he had brought back from Gibeon: 17and they departed, and lived in Geruth Chimham, which is by Bethlehem, to go to enter into Egypt, 18because of the Chaldeans; for they were afraid of them, because Ishmael the son of Nethaniah had killed Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, whom the king of Babylon made governor over the land.
1Then all the captains of the forces, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and Jezaniah the son of Hoshaiah, and all the people from the least even to the greatest, came near, 2and said to Jeremiah the prophet, Please let our supplication be presented before you, and pray for us to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , even for all this remnant; for we are left but a few of many, as your eyes do see us: 3that TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) may show us the way in which we should walk, and the thing that we should do. 4Then Jeremiah the prophet said to them, I have heard you; behold, I will pray to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) according to your words; and it shall happen that whatever thing TheIAM (Yahweh) shall answer you, I will declare it to you; I will keep nothing back from you. 5Then they said to Jeremiah, TheIAM (Yahweh) be a true and faithful witness among us, if we don't do according to all the word with which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) shall send you to us. 6Whether it be good, or whether it be evil, we will obey the voice of TheIAM (Yahweh) our God (Elohim) , to whom we send you; that it may be well with us, when we obey the voice of TheIAM (Yahweh) our God (Elohim) .
1Praise TheIAM (Yahweh) ! Give thanks to TheIAM (Yahweh) , for he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever. 2Who can utter the mighty acts of TheIAM (Yahweh) , or fully declare all his praise? 3Blessed are those who keep justice. Blessed is one who does what is right at all times. 4Remember me, TheIAM (Yahweh) , with the favor that you show to your people. Visit me with your salvation, 5that I may see the prosperity of your chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, that I may glory with your inheritance. 6We have sinned with our fathers. We have committed iniquity. We have done wickedly. 7Our fathers didn't understand your wonders in Egypt. They didn't remember the multitude of your loving kindnesses, but were rebellious at the sea, even at the Red Sea. 8Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power known. 9He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up; so he led them through the depths, as through a desert. 10He saved them from the hand of him who hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 11The waters covered their adversaries. There was not one of them left. 12Then they believed his words. They sang his praise. 13They soon forgot his works. They didn't wait for his counsel, 14but gave in to craving in the desert, and tested God (El) in the wasteland. 15He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul. 16They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron, TheIAM (Yahweh) 's saint. 17The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram. 18A fire was kindled in their company. The flame burned up the wicked. 19They made a calf in Horeb, and worshiped a molten image. 20Thus they exchanged their glory for an image of a bull that eats grass () . 21They forgot God (El) , their Savior, who had done great things in Egypt, 22Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and awesome things by the Red Sea. 23Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had Moses, his chosen, not stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, so that he wouldn't destroy them. 24Yes, they despised the pleasant land. They didn't believe his word, 25but murmured in their tents, and didn't listen to TheIAM (Yahweh) 's voice. 26Therefore he swore to them that he would overthrow them in the wilderness, 27that he would overthrow their seed among the nations, and scatter them in the lands. 28They joined themselves also to Baal Peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. 29Thus they provoked him to anger with their deeds. The plague broke in on them. 30Then Phinehas stood up, and executed judgment, so the plague was stopped. 31That was credited to him for righteousness, for all generations to come. 32They angered him also at the waters of Meribah, so that Moses was troubled for their sakes; 33because they were rebellious against his spirit, he spoke rashly with his lips. 34They didn't destroy the peoples, as TheIAM (Yahweh) commanded them, 35but mixed themselves with the nations, and learned their works. 36They served their idols, which became a snare to them. 37Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons. 38They shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan. The land was polluted with blood. 39Thus were they defiled with their works, and prostituted themselves in their deeds. 40Therefore TheIAM (Yahweh) burned with anger against his people. He abhorred his inheritance. 41He gave them into the hand of the nations. Those who hated them ruled over them. 42Their enemies also oppressed them. They were brought into subjection under their hand. 43Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their counsel, and were brought low in their iniquity. 44Nevertheless he regarded their distress, when he heard their cry. 45He remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses. 46He made them also to be pitied by all those who carried them captive. 47Save us, TheIAM (Yahweh) , our God (Elohim) , gather us from among the nations, to give thanks to your holy name, to triumph in your praise! 48Blessed be TheIAM (Yahweh) , the God (Elohim) of Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting! Let all the people say, "Amen." Praise IAM (Yah) ! [BOOK IV end]
7But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves. 8We are pressed on every side, yet not crushed; perplexed, yet not to despair; 9pursued, yet not forsaken (Enkataleipo) ; struck down, yet not destroyed; 10always carrying in the body the putting to death of the Lord (Kurios) Jesus, that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus may be revealed in our mortal flesh. 12So then death works in us, but life in you. 13But having the same spirit of faith, according to that which is written, "I believed, and therefore I spoke." We also believe, and therefore also we speak; 14knowing that he who raised the Lord (Kurios) Jesus will raise us also with Jesus, and will present us with you. 15For all things are for your sakes, that the grace, being multiplied through the many, may cause the thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God. 16Therefore we don't faint, but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day. 17For our light affliction, which is for the moment, works for us more and more exceedingly an eternal weight of glory; 18while we don't look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
1For we know that if the earthly house of our tent is dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens. 2For most certainly in this we groan, longing to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven; 3if so be that being clothed we will not be found naked. 4For indeed we who are in this tent do groan, being burdened; not that we desire to be unclothed, but that we desire to be clothed, that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5Now he who made us for this very thing is God, who also gave to us the down payment of the Spirit. 6Therefore, we are always confident and know that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord (Kurios) ; 7for we walk by faith, not by sight. 8We are courageous, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be at home with the Lord (Kurios) . 9Therefore also we make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to be well pleasing to him. 10For we must all be revealed before the judgment seat of Christ; that each one may receive the things in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
