1When TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) shall bring you into the land where you go to possess it, and shall cast out many nations before you, the Hittite, and the Girgashite, and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, seven nations greater and mightier than you; 2and when TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) shall deliver them up before you, and you shall strike them; then you shall utterly destroy them: you shall make no covenant with them, nor show mercy to them; 3neither shall you make marriages with them; your daughter you shall not give to his son, nor shall you take his daughter for your son. 4For he will turn away your son from following me, that they may serve other God (Elohim) s: so the anger of TheIAM (Yahweh) would be kindled against you, and he would destroy you quickly. 5But you shall deal with them like this: you shall break down their altars, and dash their pillars in pieces, and cut down their Asherim, and burn their engraved images with fire. 6For you are a holy people to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) : TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) has chosen you to be a people for his own possession, above all peoples who are on the face of the earth. 7TheIAM (Yahweh) didn't set his love on you, nor choose you, because you were more in number than any people; for you were the fewest of all peoples: 8but because TheIAM (Yahweh) loves you, and because he would keep the oath which he swore to your fathers, has TheIAM (Yahweh) brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. 9Know therefore that TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , he is God (Elohim) , the faithful God (El) , who keeps covenant and loving kindness with them who love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations, 10and repays those who hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him who hates him, he will repay him to his face. 11You shall therefore keep the commandment, and the statutes, and the ordinances, which I command you this day, to do them. 12It shall happen, because you listen to these ordinances, and keep and do them, that TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) will keep with you the covenant and the loving kindness which he swore to your fathers: 13and he will love you, and bless you, and multiply you; he will also bless the fruit of your body and the fruit of your ground, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your livestock and the young of your flock, in the land which he swore to your fathers to give you. 14You shall be blessed above all peoples: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your livestock. 15TheIAM (Yahweh) will take away from you all sickness; and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you know, he will put on you, but will lay them on all those who hate you. 16You shall consume all the peoples whom TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) shall deliver to you; your eye shall not pity them: neither shall you serve their gods (Elohim) ; for that will be a snare to you. 17If you shall say in your heart, "These nations are more than I; how can I dispossess them?" 18you shall not be afraid of them: you shall well remember what TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) did to Pharaoh, and to all Egypt; 19the great trials which your eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the outstretched arm, by which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) brought you out: so shall TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. 20Moreover TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) will send the hornet among them, until those who are left, and hide themselves, perish from before you. 21You shall not be scared of them; for TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) is in the midst of you, a great and awesome God (El) . 22TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) will cast out those nations before you by little and little: you may not consume them at once, lest the animals of the field increase on you. 23But TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) will deliver them up before you, and will confuse them with a great confusion, until they be destroyed. 24He will deliver their kings into your hand, and you shall make their name to perish from under the sky: no man shall be able to stand before you, until you have destroyed them. 25You shall burn the engraved images of their gods (Elohim) with fire. You shall not covet the silver or the gold that is on them, nor take it for yourself, lest you be snared in it; for it is an abomination to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) . 26You shall not bring an abomination into your house, and become a devoted thing like it. You shall utterly detest it, and you shall utterly abhor it; for it is a devoted thing.
20from the ground to above the door were cherubim and palm trees made: thus was the wall of the temple. 21As for the temple, the door posts were squared; and as for the face of the sanctuary, the appearance [of it] was as the appearance [of the temple]. 22The altar was of wood, three cubits high, and its length two cubits; and its corners, and its length, and its walls, were of wood: and he said to me, This is the table that is before TheIAM (Yahweh) . 23The temple and the sanctuary had two doors. 24The doors had two leaves [apiece], two turning leaves: two [leaves] for the one door, and two leaves for the other. 25There were made on them, on the doors of the temple, cherubim and palm trees, like as were made on the walls; and there was a threshold of wood on the face of the porch outside. 26There were closed windows and palm trees on the one side and on the other side, on the sides of the porch: thus were the side rooms of the house, and the thresholds.
1Then he brought me forth into the outer court, the way toward the north: and he brought me into the room that was over against the separate place, and which was over against the building toward the north. 2Before the length of one hundred cubits was the north door, and the breadth was fifty cubits. 3Over against the twenty [cubits] which belonged to the inner court, and over against the pavement which belonged to the outer court, was gallery against gallery in the third story. 4Before the rooms was a walk of ten cubits' breadth inward, a way of one cubit; and their doors were toward the north. 5Now the upper rooms were shorter; for the galleries took away from these, more than from the lower and the middle, in the building. 6For they were in three stories, and they didn't have pillars as the pillars of the courts: therefore [the uppermost] was straitened more than the lowest and the middle from the ground. 7The wall that was outside by the side of the rooms, toward the outer court before the rooms, its length was fifty cubits. 8For the length of the rooms that were in the outer court was fifty cubits: and behold, before the temple were one hundred cubits. 9From under these rooms was the entry on the east side, as one goes into them from the outer court. 10In the thickness of the wall of the court toward the east, before the separate place, and before the building, there were rooms. 11The way before them was like the appearance of [the way of] the rooms which were toward the north; according to their length so was their breadth: and all their exits were both according to their fashions, and according to their doors. 12According to the doors of the rooms that were toward the south was a door at the head of the way, even the way directly before the wall toward the east, as one enters into them. 13Then he said to me, The north rooms and the south rooms, which are before the separate place, they are the holy rooms, where the priests who are near to TheIAM (Yahweh) shall eat the most holy things: there shall they lay the most holy things, and the meal offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass offering; for the place is holy. 14When the priests enter in, then shall they not go out of the holy place into the outer court, but there they shall lay their garments in which they minister; for they are holy: and they shall put on other garments, and shall approach to that which pertains to the people. 15Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he brought me forth by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and measured it all around. 16He measured on the east side with the measuring reed five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed all around. 17He measured on the north side five hundred reeds with the measuring reed all around. 18He measured on the south side five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 19He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed. 20He measured it on the four sides: it had a wall around it, the length five hundred, and the breadth five hundred, to make a separation between that which was holy and that which was common.
11A fool vents all of his anger, but a wise man brings himself under control. 12If a ruler listens to lies, all of his officials are wicked. 13The poor man and the oppressor have this in common: TheIAM (Yahweh) gives sight to the eyes of both. 14The king who fairly judges the poor, his throne shall be established forever. 15The rod of correction gives wisdom, but a child left to himself causes shame to his mother. 16When the wicked increase, sin increases; but the righteous will see their downfall. 17Correct your son, and he will give you peace; yes, he will bring delight to your soul. 18Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; but one who keeps the law is blessed. 19A servant can't be corrected by words. Though he understands, yet he will not respond. 20Do you see a man who is hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him. 21He who pampers his servant from youth will have him become a son in the end. 22An angry man stirs up strife, and a wrathful man abounds in sin. 23A man's pride brings him low, but one of lowly spirit gains honor. 24Whoever is an accomplice of a thief is an enemy of his own soul. He takes an oath, but dares not testify. 25The fear of man proves to be a snare, but whoever puts his trust in TheIAM (Yahweh) is kept safe. 26Many seek the ruler's favor, but a man's justice comes from TheIAM (Yahweh) . 27A dishonest man detests the righteous, and the upright in their ways detest the wicked.
1The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, the oracle: the man says to Ithiel, to Ithiel and Ucal: 2"Surely I am the most ignorant man, and don't have a man's understanding. 3I have not learned wisdom, neither do I have the knowledge of the Holy One. 4Who has ascended up into heaven, and descended? Who has gathered the wind in his fists? Who has bound the waters in his garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son's name, if you know? 5"Every word of God (Eloah) is flawless. He is a shield to those who take refuge in him. 6Don't you add to his words, lest he reprove you, and you be found a liar. 7"Two things I have asked of you; don't deny me before I die: 8Remove far from me falsehood and lies. Give me neither poverty nor riches. Feed me with the food that is needful for me; 9lest I be full, deny you, and say, 'Who is TheIAM (Yahweh) ?' or lest I be poor, and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God (Elohim) .
26For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more a sacrifice for sins, 27but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and a fierceness of fire which will devour the adversaries. 28A man who disregards Moses' law dies without compassion on the word of two or three witnesses. 29How much worse punishment, do you think, will he be judged worthy of, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30For we know him who said, "Vengeance belongs to me," says the Lord (Kurios) , "I will repay." Again, "The Lord (Kurios) will judge his people." 31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. 32But remember the former days, in which, after you were enlightened, you endured a great struggle with sufferings; 33partly, being exposed to both reproaches and oppressions; and partly, becoming partakers with those who were treated so. 34For you both had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your possessions, knowing that you have for yourselves a better possession and an enduring one in the heavens. 35Therefore don't throw away your boldness, which has a great reward. 36For you need endurance so that, having done the will of God, you may receive the promise. 37"In a very little while, he who comes will come, and will not wait. 38But the righteous will live by faith. If he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him." 39But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the saving of the soul.
1Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen. 2For by this, the elders obtained testimony. 3By faith, we understand that the universe has been framed by the word of God, so that what is seen has not been made out of things which are visible. 4By faith, Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he had testimony given to him that he was righteous, God testifying with respect to his gifts; and through it he, being dead, still speaks. 5By faith, Enoch was taken away, so that he wouldn't see death, and he was not found, because God translated him. For he has had testimony given to him that before his translation he had been well pleasing to God. 6Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him. 7By faith, Noah, being warned about things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared a ship for the saving of his house, through which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
