1These are the words of the covenant which TheIAM (Yahweh) commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, besides the covenant which he made with them in Horeb. 2Moses called to all Israel, and said to them, You have seen all that TheIAM (Yahweh) did before your eyes in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land; 3the great trials which your eyes saw, the signs, and those great wonders: 4but TheIAM (Yahweh) has not given you a heart to know, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, to this day. 5I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes have not grown old on you, and your shoes have not grown old on your feet. 6You have not eaten bread, neither have you drunk wine or strong drink; that you may know that I am TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) . 7When you came to this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us to battle, and we struck them: 8and we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half-tribe of the Manassites. 9Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that you may prosper in all that you do. 10You stand this day all of you before TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) ; your heads, your tribes, your elders, and your officers, even all the men of Israel, 11your little ones, your wives, and your foreigner who is in the midst of your camps, from the one who cuts your wood to the one who draws your water; 12that you may enter into the covenant of TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , and into his oath, which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) makes with you this day; 13that he may establish you this day to himself for a people, and that he may be to you a God (Elohim) , as he spoke to you, and as he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. 14Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath, 15but with him who stands here with us this day before TheIAM (Yahweh) our God (Elohim) , and also with him who is not here with us this day 16(for you know how we lived in the land of Egypt, and how we came through the midst of the nations through which you passed; 17and you have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them); 18lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turns away this day from TheIAM (Yahweh) our God (Elohim) , to go to serve the gods (Elohim) of those nations; lest there should be among you a root that bears gall and wormwood; 19and it happen, when he hears the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, "I shall have peace, though I walk in the stubbornness of my heart, to destroy the moist with the dry." 20TheIAM (Yahweh) will not pardon him, but then the anger of TheIAM (Yahweh) and his jealousy will smoke against that man, and all the curse that is written in this book shall lie on him, and TheIAM (Yahweh) will blot out his name from under the sky. 21TheIAM (Yahweh) will set him apart to evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that is written in this book of the law. 22The generation to come, your children who shall rise up after you, and the foreigner who shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses with which TheIAM (Yahweh) has made it sick; 23[and that] the whole land of it is sulfur, and salt, [and] a burning, [that] it is not sown, nor bears, nor any plants () grow therein, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which TheIAM (Yahweh) overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath: 24even all the nations shall say, "Why has TheIAM (Yahweh) done thus to this land? What does the heat of this great anger mean?" 25Then men shall say, "Because they forsook the covenant of TheIAM (Yahweh) , the God (Elohim) of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, 26and went and served other gods (Elohim) , and worshiped them, gods (Elohim) that they didn't know, and that he had not given to them: 27therefore the anger of TheIAM (Yahweh) was kindled against this land, to bring on it all the curse that is written in this book; 28and TheIAM (Yahweh) rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as at this day." 29The secret things belong to TheIAM (Yahweh) our God (Elohim) ; but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.
1In the seventh month, in the twenty-first day of the month, the Word of TheIAM (Yahweh) came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 2"Speak now to Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua, the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people, saying, 3'Who is left among you who saw this house in its former glory? How do you see it now? Isn't it in your eyes as nothing? 4Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,' says TheIAM (Yahweh) . 'Be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,' says TheIAM (Yahweh) , 'and work, for I am with you,' says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies. 5This is the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, and my Spirit lived among you. 'Don't be afraid.' 6For this is what TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies says: 'Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land; 7and I will shake all nations. The precious things of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory, says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies. 8The silver is mine, and the gold is mine,' says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies. 9'The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,' says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies; 'and in this place will I give peace,' says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies." 10In the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, the Word of TheIAM (Yahweh) came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 11"Thus says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies: Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying, 12'If someone carries holy meat in the fold of his garment, and with his fold touches bread, stew, wine, oil, or any food, will it become holy?'" The priests answered, "No." 13Then Haggai said, "If one who is unclean by reason of a dead body touch any of these, will it be unclean?" The priests answered, "It will be unclean." 14Then Haggai answered, "'So is this people, and so is this nation before me,' says TheIAM (Yahweh) ; 'and so is every work of their hands. That which they offer there is unclean. 15Now, please consider from this day and backward, before a stone was laid on a stone in the temple of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 16Through all that time, when one came to a heap of twenty measures, there were only ten. When one came to the wine vat to draw out fifty, there were only twenty. 17I struck you with blight, mildew, and hail in all the work of your hands; yet you didn't turn to me,' says TheIAM (Yahweh) . 18'Consider, please, from this day and backward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, since the day that the foundation of TheIAM (Yahweh) 's temple was laid, consider it. 19Is the seed yet in the barn? Yes, the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree haven't brought forth. From this day will I bless you.'" 20The Word of TheIAM (Yahweh) came the second time to Haggai in the twenty-fourth day of the month, saying, 21"Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, 'I will shake the heavens and the earth. 22I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms. I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the nations. I will overthrow the chariots, and those who ride in them. The horses and their riders will come down, everyone by the sword of his brother. 23In that day, says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies, will I take you, Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel,' says TheIAM (Yahweh) , 'and will make you as a signet, for I have chosen you,' says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies."
1It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom one hundred twenty satraps, who should be throughout the whole kingdom; 2and over them three presidents, of whom Daniel was one; that these satraps might give account to them, and that the king should have no damage. 3Then this Daniel was distinguished above the presidents and the satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm. 4Then the presidents and the satraps sought to find occasion against Daniel as touching the kingdom; but they could find no occasion nor fault, because he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. 5Then these men said, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God (Elah) . 6Then these presidents and satraps assembled together to the king, and said thus to him, King Darius, live forever. 7All the presidents of the kingdom, the deputies and the satraps, the counselors and the governors, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a strong decree, that whoever shall ask a petition of any god (Elah) or man for thirty days, except of you, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions. 8Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it not be changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which doesn't alter. 9Therefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree. 10When Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house (now his windows were open in his room toward Jerusalem) and he kneeled on his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God (Elah) , as he did before. 11Then these men assembled together, and found Daniel making petition and supplication before his God (Elah) . 12Then they came near, and spoke before the king concerning the king's decree: Haven't you signed an decree, that every man who shall make petition to any god (Elah) or man within thirty days, except to you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which doesn't alter. 13Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, who is of the children of the captivity of Judah, doesn't respect you, O king, nor the decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day. 14Then the king, when he heard these words, was very displeased, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him; and he labored until the going down of the sun to rescue him. 15Then these men assembled together to the king, and said to the king, Know, O king, that it is a law of the Medes and Persians, that no decree nor statute which the king establishes may be changed. 16Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. [Now] the king spoke and said to Daniel, Your God (Elah) whom you serve continually, he will deliver you. 17A stone was brought, and laid on the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that nothing might be changed concerning Daniel. 18Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting; neither were instruments of music brought before him: and his sleep fled from him. 19Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste to the den of lions. 20When he came near to the den to Daniel, he cried with a lamentable voice; the king spoke and said to Daniel, Daniel, servant of the living God (Elah) , is your God (Elah) , whom you serve continually, able to deliver you from the lions? 21Then Daniel said to the king, O king, live forever. 22My God (Elah) has sent his angel, and has shut the lions' mouths, and they have not hurt me; because as before him innocence was found in me; and also before you, O king, have I done no hurt. 23Then was the king exceeding glad, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no kind of harm was found on him, because he had trusted in his God (Elah) . 24The king commanded, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and broke all their bones in pieces, before they came to the bottom of the den. 25Then king Darius wrote to all the peoples, nations, and languages, who dwell in all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you. 26I make a decree, that in all the dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God (Elah) of Daniel; for he is the living God (Elah) , and steadfast forever, His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed; and his dominion shall be even to the end. 27He delivers and rescues, and he works signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions. 28So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
1Then I stood on the sand of the sea. I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads. On his horns were ten crowns, and on his heads, blasphemous names. 2The beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 3One of his heads looked like it had been wounded fatally. His fatal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled at the beast. 4They worshiped the dragon, because he gave his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?" 5A mouth speaking great things and blasphemy was given to him. Authority to make war for forty-two months was given to him. 6He opened his mouth for blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his dwelling, those who dwell in heaven. 7It was given to him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. Authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation was given to him. 8All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been killed. 9If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10If anyone is to go into captivity, he will go into captivity. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, he must be killed. Here is the endurance and the faith of the saints. 11I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon. 12He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. He makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. 13He performs great signs, even making fire come down out of the sky to the earth in the sight of people. 14He deceives my own people who dwell on the earth because of the signs he was granted to do in front of the beast; saying to those who dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who had the sword wound and lived. 15It was given to him to give breath to it, to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause as many as wouldn't worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, to be given marks on their right hands, or on their foreheads; 17and that no one would be able to buy or to sell, unless he has that mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is six hundred sixty-six.
