1Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) ; for in the month of Abib TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) brought you forth out of Egypt by night. 2You shall sacrifice the Passover to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , of the flock and the herd, in the place which TheIAM (Yahweh) shall choose, to cause his name to dwell there. 3You shall eat no leavened bread with it. You shall eat unleavened bread with it seven days, even the bread of affliction; for you came forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that you may remember the day when you came forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life. 4No yeast shall be seen with you in all your borders seven days; neither shall any of the flesh, which you sacrifice the first day at evening, remain all night until the morning. 5You may not sacrifice the Passover within any of your gates, which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) gives you; 6but at the place which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) shall choose, to cause his name to dwell in, there you shall sacrifice the Passover at evening, at the going down of the sun, at the season that you came forth out of Egypt. 7You shall roast and eat it in the place which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) shall choose: and you shall turn in the morning, and go to your tents. 8Six days you shall eat unleavened bread; and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) ; you shall do no work [therein]. 9You shall count for yourselves seven weeks: from the time you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain you shall begin to number seven weeks. 10You shall keep the feast of weeks to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) with a tribute of a freewill offering of your hand, which you shall give, according as TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) blesses you: 11and you shall rejoice before TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , you, and your son, and your daughter, and your male servant, and your female servant, and the Levite who is within your gates, and the foreigner, and the fatherless, and the widow, who are in the midst of you, in the place which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) shall choose, to cause his name to dwell there. 12You shall remember that you were a bondservant in Egypt: and you shall observe and do these statutes. 13You shall keep the feast of tents seven days, after that you have gathered in from your threshing floor and from your winepress: 14and you shall rejoice in your feast, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your male servant, and your female servant, and the Levite, and the foreigner, and the fatherless, and the widow, who are within your gates. 15You shall keep a feast to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) seven days in the place which TheIAM (Yahweh) shall choose; because TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) will bless you in all your increase, and in all the work of your hands, and you shall be altogether joyful. 16Three times in a year shall all your males appear before TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) in the place which he shall choose: in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tents; and they shall not appear before TheIAM (Yahweh) empty: 17every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) which he has given you. 18You shall make judges and officers in all your gates, which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) gives you, according to your tribes; and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. 19You shall not wrest justice: you shall not respect persons; neither shall you take a bribe; for a bribe does blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous. 20You shall pursue (Radaph) that which is altogether just, that you may live, and inherit the land which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) gives you. 21You shall not plant for yourselves an Asherah of any kind of tree beside the altar of TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , which you shall make for yourselves. 22Neither shall you set yourself up a pillar; which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) hates.
1The Word of TheIAM (Yahweh) that came to Joel, the son of Pethuel. 2Hear this, you elders, And listen, all you inhabitants of the land. Has this ever happened in your days, or in the days of your fathers? 3Tell your children about it, and have your children tell their children, and their children, another generation. 4What the swarming locust has left, the great locust has eaten. What the great locust has left, the grasshopper has eaten. What the grasshopper has left, the caterpillar has eaten. 5Wake up, you drunkards, and weep! Wail, all you drinkers of wine, because of the sweet wine; for it is cut off from your mouth. 6For a nation has come up on my land, strong, and without number. His teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he has the fangs of a lioness. 7He has laid my vine waste, and stripped my fig tree. He has stripped its bark, and thrown it away. Its branches are made white. 8Mourn like a virgin dressed in sackcloth for the husband (Baal) of her youth! 9The meal offering and the drink offering are cut off from TheIAM (Yahweh) 's house. The priests, TheIAM (Yahweh) 's ministers, mourn. 10The field is laid waste. The land mourns, for the grain is destroyed, The new wine has dried up, and the oil languishes. 11Be confounded, you farmers! Wail, you vineyard keepers; for the wheat and for the barley; for the harvest of the field has perished. 12The vine has dried up, and the fig tree withered; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all of the trees of the field are withered; for joy has withered away from the sons of men. 13Put on sackcloth and mourn, you priests! Wail, you ministers of the altar. Come, lie all night in sackcloth, you ministers of my God (Elohim) , for the meal offering and the drink offering are withheld from your God (Elohim) 's house. 14Sanctify a fast. Call a solemn assembly. Gather the elders, and all the inhabitants of the land, to the house of TheIAM (Yahweh) , your God (Elohim) , and cry to TheIAM (Yahweh) . 15Alas for the day! For the day of TheIAM (Yahweh) is at hand, and it will come as destruction from the Almighty (Shaddai) . 16Isn't the food cut off before our eyes; joy and gladness from the house of our God (Elohim) ? 17The seeds rot under their clods. The granaries are laid desolate. The barns are broken down, for the grain has withered. 18How the animals groan! The herds of livestock are perplexed, because they have no pasture. Yes, the flocks of sheep are made desolate. 19TheIAM (Yahweh) , I cry to you, For the fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame has burned all the trees of the field. 20Yes, the animals of the field pant to you, for the water brooks have dried up, And the fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness.
8The voice of my beloved! Behold, he comes, leaping on the mountains, skipping on the hills. 9My beloved is like a roe or a young hart. Behold, he stands behind our wall! He looks in at the windows. He glances through the lattice. 10My beloved spoke, and said to me, "Rise up, my love, my beautiful one, and come away. 11For, behold, the winter is past. The rain is over and gone. 12The flowers appear on the earth. The time of the singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. 13The fig tree ripens her green figs. The vines are in blossom. They give forth their fragrance. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away." Lover 14My dove in the clefts of the rock, In the hiding places of the mountainside, Let me see your face. Let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely. 15Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vineyards; for our vineyards are in blossom. Beloved 16My beloved is mine, and I am his. He browses among the lilies. 17Until the day is cool, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be like a roe or a young hart on the mountains of Bether.
1Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained a like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ: 2Grace to you and peace be multiplied in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord (Kurios) , 3seeing that his divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and virtue; 4by which he has granted to us his precious and exceedingly great promises; that through these you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust. 5Yes, and for this very cause adding on your part all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence; and in moral excellence, knowledge; 6and in knowledge, self-control; and in self-control patience; and in patience godliness; 7and in godliness brotherly affection; and in brotherly affection, love (Agape) . 8For if these things are yours and abound, they make you to be not idle nor unfruitful to the knowledge of our Lord (Kurios) Jesus Christ. 9For he who lacks these things is blind, seeing only what is near, having forgotten the cleansing from his old sins. 10Therefore, brothers, be more diligent to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never stumble. 11For thus you will be richly supplied with the entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord (Kurios) and Savior, Jesus Christ. 12Therefore I will not be negligent to remind you of these things, though you know them, and are established in the present truth. 13I think it right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you; 14knowing that the putting off of my tent comes swiftly, even as our Lord (Kurios) Jesus Christ made clear to me. 15Yes, I will make every effort that you may always be able to remember these things even after my departure. 16For we did not follow cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord (Kurios) Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17For he received from God the Father honor and glory, when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, "This is my dear (Agapetos) Son, in whom I am well pleased." 18We heard this voice come out of heaven when we were with him on the holy mountain. 19We have the more sure word of prophecy; and you do well that you heed it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns, and the morning star arises in your hearts: 20knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of private interpretation. 21For no prophecy ever came by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke, being moved by the Holy Spirit.
1But false prophets also arose among the people, as false teachers will also be among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, denying even the Master (Despotes) who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction. 2Many will follow their immoral ways, and as a result, the way of the truth will be maligned. 3In covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words: whose sentence now from of old doesn't linger, and their destruction will not slumber. 4For if God didn't spare angels when they sinned, but cast them down to Tartarus, and committed them to pits of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5and didn't spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah with seven others, a preacher of righteousness, when he brought a flood on the world of the ungodly; 6and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly; 7and delivered righteous Lot, who was very distressed by the lustful life of the wicked 8(for that righteous man dwelling among them, was tormented in his righteous soul from day to day with seeing and hearing lawless deeds):
