1Balaam said to Balak, "Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven bulls and seven rams." 2Balak did as Balaam had spoken; and Balak and Balaam offered on every altar a bull and a ram. 3Balaam said to Balak, "Stand by your burnt offering, and I will go: perhaps TheIAM (Yahweh) will come to meet me; and whatever he shows me I will tell you." He went to a bare height. 4God (Elohim) met Balaam: and he said to him, "I have prepared the seven altars, and I have offered up a bull and a ram on every altar." 5TheIAM (Yahweh) put a word in Balaam's mouth, and said, "Return to Balak, and thus you shall speak." 6He returned to him, and behold, he was standing by his burnt offering, he, and all the princes of Moab. 7He took up his parable, and said, "From Aram has Balak brought me, the king of Moab from the mountains of the East. Come, curse Jacob for me. Come, defy Israel. 8How shall I curse whom God (El) has not cursed? How shall I defy whom TheIAM (Yahweh) has not defied? 9For from the top of the rocks I see him. From the hills I see him. Behold, it is a people that dwells alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations. 10Who can count the dust of Jacob, or number the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous! Let my last end be like his!" 11Balak said to Balaam, "What have you done to me? I took you to curse my enemies, and behold, you have blessed them altogether." 12He answered and said, "Must I not take heed to speak that which TheIAM (Yahweh) puts in my mouth?" 13Balak said to him, "Please come with me to another place, where you may see them; you shall see but the utmost part of them, and shall not see them all: and curse me them from there." 14He took him into the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered up a bull and a ram on every altar. 15He said to Balak, "Stand here by your burnt offering, while I meet [TheIAM (Yahweh) ] yonder." 16TheIAM (Yahweh) met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, "Return to Balak, and say this." 17He came to him, and behold, he was standing by his burnt offering, and the princes of Moab with him. Balak said to him, "What has TheIAM (Yahweh) spoken?" 18He took up his parable, and said, "Rise up, Balak, and hear! Listen to me, you son of Zippor. 19God (El) is not a man, that he should lie, nor the son of man, that he should repent. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not make it good? 20Behold, I have received a command to bless. He has blessed, and I can't reverse it.
12Now in the fifth month, in the tenth day of the month, which was the nineteenth year of king Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, who stood before the king of Babylon, into Jerusalem: 13and he burned the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , and the king's house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, even every great house, burned he with fire. 14All the army of the Chaldeans, who were with the captain of the guard, broke down all the walls of Jerusalem all around. 15Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive of the poorest of the people, and the residue of the people who were left in the city, and those who fell away, who fell to the king of Babylon, and the residue of the multitude. 16But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poorest of the land to be vineyard keepers and farmers. 17The pillars of brass that were in the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , and the bases and the bronze sea that were in the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , did the Chaldeans break in pieces, and carried all the brass of them to Babylon. 18The pots also, and the shovels, and the snuffers, and the basins, and the spoons, and all the vessels of brass with which they ministered, took they away. 19The cups, and the fire pans, and the basins, and the pots, and the lampstands, and the spoons, and the bowls - that which was of gold, in gold, and that which was of silver, in silver, - the captain of the guard took away. 20The two pillars, the one sea, and the twelve bronze bulls that were under the bases, which king Solomon had made for the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) . The brass of all these vessels was without weight. 21As for the pillars, the height of the one pillar was eighteen cubits; and a line of twelve cubits did compass it; and its thickness was four fingers: it was hollow. 22A capital of brass was on it; and the height of the one capital was five cubits, with network and pomegranates on the capital all around, all of brass: and the second pillar also had like these, and pomegranates. 23There were ninety-six pomegranates on the sides; all the pomegranates were one hundred on the network all around. 24The captain of the guard took Seraiah the chief priest, and Zephaniah the second priest, and the three keepers of the threshold: 25and out of the city he took an officer who was set over the men of war; and seven men of those who saw the king's face, who were found in the city; and the scribe of the captain of the army, who mustered the people of the land; and sixty men of the people of the land, who were found in the midst of the city. 26Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard took them, and brought them to the king of Babylon to Riblah. 27The king of Babylon struck them, and put them to death at Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah was carried away captive out of his land. 28This is the people whom Nebuchadnezzar carried away captive: in the seventh year three thousand twenty-three Jews; 29in the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar he carried away captive from Jerusalem eight hundred thirty-two persons; 30in the three and twentieth year of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive of the Jews seven hundred forty-five persons: all the persons were four thousand and six hundred. 31It happened in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, in the five and twentieth day of the month, that Evilmerodach king of Babylon, in the [first] year of his reign, lifted up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah, and brought him forth out of prison; 32and he spoke kindly to him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings who were with him in Babylon, 33and changed his prison garments. [Jehoiachin] ate bread before him continually all the days of his life: 34and for his allowance, there was a continual allowance given him by the king of Babylon, every day a portion until the day of his death, all the days of his life.
A Song of Ascents. 1In my distress, I cried to TheIAM (Yahweh) . He answered me. 2Deliver my soul, TheIAM (Yahweh) , from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue. 3What will be given to you, and what will be done more to you, you deceitful tongue? 4Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper. 5Woe is me, that I live in Meshech, that I dwell among the tents of Kedar! 6My soul has had her dwelling too long with him who hates peace. 7I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war.
A Song of Ascents. 1I will lift up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from? 2My help comes from TheIAM (Yahweh) , who made heaven and earth. 3He will not allow your foot to be moved. He who keeps you will not slumber. 4Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5TheIAM (Yahweh) is your keeper. TheIAM (Yahweh) is your shade on your right hand. 6The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. 7TheIAM (Yahweh) will keep you from all evil. He will keep your soul. 8TheIAM (Yahweh) will keep your going out and your coming in, from this time forth, and forevermore.
A Song of Ascents. By David. 1I was glad when they said to me, "Let's go to TheIAM (Yahweh) 's house!" 2Our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem; 3Jerusalem, that is built as a city that is compact together; 4where the tribes go up, even IAM (Yah) 's tribes, according to an ordinance for Israel, to give thanks to the name of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 5For there are set thrones for judgment, the thrones of David's house. 6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Those who love you will prosper. 7Peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces. 8For my brothers' and companions' sakes, I will now say, "Peace be within you." 9For the sake of the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) our God (Elohim) , I will seek your good.

1For freedom the AnointedOne (Kristos) has made us free; therefore stand firm and don't be entangled again with a yoke of slavery. 2Behold, I, Paul, tell you that if you receive circumcision, the AnointedOne (Kristos) will profit you nothing. 3Yes, I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4You are alienated from the AnointedOne (Kristos) , you who desire to be justified by the law. You have fallen away from grace. 5For we, through the Spirit, by faith wait for the hope of righteousness. 6For in AnointedOne (Kristos) Jesus neither circumcision amounts to anything, nor uncircumcision, but faith working through love (Agape) . 7You were running well! Who interfered with you that you should not obey the truth? 8This persuasion is not from him who calls you. 9A little yeast grows through the whole lump. 10I have confidence toward you in the Lord (Kurios) that you will think no other way. But he who troubles you will bear his judgment, whoever he is. 11But I, brothers, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling block of the cross has been removed. 12I wish that those who disturb you would cut themselves off. 13For you, brothers, were called for freedom. Only don't use your freedom for gain to the flesh, but through love (Agape) be servants to one another. 14For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in this: "You shall love (Agapeo) your neighbor as yourself." 15But if you bite and devour one another, be careful that you don't consume one another. 16But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won't fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, that you may not do the things that you desire. 18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19Now the works of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness, 20idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strife, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, divisions, heresies, 21envyings, murders, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these; of which I forewarn you, even as I also forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God. 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love (Agape) , joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, 23gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to the AnointedOne (Kristos) have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts. 25If we live by the Spirit, let's also walk by the Spirit. 26Let's not become conceited, provoking one another, and envying one another.
