Section 1

Deuteronomy Chapter 31

1Moses went and spoke these words to all Israel. 2He said to them, "I am one hundred twenty years old this day; I can no more go out and come in: and TheIAM (Yahweh) has said to me, 'You shall not go over this Jordan.' 3TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , he will go over before you; he will destroy these nations from before you, and you shall dispossess them: [and] Joshua, he shall go over before you, as TheIAM (Yahweh) has spoken. 4TheIAM (Yahweh) will do to them as he did to Sihon and to Og, the kings of the Amorites, and to their land; whom he destroyed. 5TheIAM (Yahweh) will deliver them up before you, and you shall do to them according to all the commandment which I have commanded you. 6Be strong and courageous, don't be afraid, nor be scared of them: for TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , he it is who does go with you; he will not fail you, nor forsake you." 7Moses called to Joshua, and said to him in the sight of all Israel, "Be strong and courageous: for you shall go with this people into the land which TheIAM (Yahweh) has sworn to their fathers to give them; and you shall cause them to inherit it. 8TheIAM (Yahweh) , he it is who does go before you; he will be with you, he will not fail you, neither forsake you: don't be afraid, neither be dismayed." 9Moses wrote this law, and delivered it to the priests the sons of Levi, who bore the ark of the covenant of TheIAM (Yahweh) , and to all the elders of Israel. 10Moses commanded them, saying, "At the end of [every] seven years, in the set time of the year of release, in the feast of tents, 11when all Israel is come to appear before TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) in the place which he shall choose, you shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing. 12Assemble the people, the men and the women and the little ones, and your foreigner who is within your gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , and observe to do all the words of this law; 13and that their children, who have not known, may hear, and learn to fear TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , as long as you live in the land where you go over the Jordan to possess it."

Section 2

Zechariah Chapter 5

1Then again I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold, a flying scroll. 2He said to me, "What do you see?" I answered, "I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty cubits, and its breadth ten cubits." 3Then he said to me, "This is the curse that goes out over the surface of the whole land; for everyone who steals shall be cut off according to it on the one side; and everyone who swears falsely shall be cut off according to it on the other side. 4I will cause it to go out," says TheIAM (Yahweh) of Armies, "and it will enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him who swears falsely by my name; and it will remain in the midst of his house, and will destroy it with its timber and its stones." 5Then the angel who talked with me came forward, and said to me, "Lift up now your eyes, and see what is this that is appearing." 6I said, "What is it?" He said, "This is the ephah basket that is appearing." He said moreover, "This is their appearance in all the land 7(and behold, a talent of lead was lifted up); and this is a woman sitting in the midst of the ephah basket." 8He said, "This is Wickedness;" and he threw her down into the midst of the ephah basket; and he threw the weight of lead on its mouth. 9Then lifted I up my eyes, and saw, and behold, there were two women, and the wind was in their wings. Now they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the ephah basket between earth and the sky. 10Then I said to the angel who talked with me, "Where are these carrying the ephah basket?" 11He said to me, "To build her a house in the land of Shinar. When it is prepared, she will be set there in her own place."

Section 3

Daniel Chapter 8

5As I was considering, behold, a male goat came from the west over the surface of the whole earth, and didn't touch the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. 6He came to the ram that had the two (Baal) horns, which I saw standing before the river, and ran on him in the fury of his power. 7I saw him come close to the ram, and he was moved with anger against him, and struck the ram, and broke his two horns; and there was no power in the ram to stand before him; but he cast him down to the ground, and trampled on him; and there was none who could deliver the ram out of his hand. 8The male goat magnified himself exceedingly: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and instead of it there came up four notable [horns] toward the four winds of the sky. 9Out of one of them came forth a little horn, which grew exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the glorious [land]. 10It grew great, even to the army of the sky; and some of the army and of the stars it cast down to the ground, and trampled on them. 11Yes, it magnified itself, even to the prince of the army; and it took away from him the continual [burnt offering], and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. 12The army was given over [to it] together with the continual [burnt offering] through disobedience; and it cast down truth to the ground, and it did [its pleasure] and prospered. 13Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said to that certain one who spoke, How long shall be the vision [concerning] the continual [burnt offering], and the disobedience that makes desolate, to give both the sanctuary and the army to be trodden under foot? 14He said to me, To two thousand and three hundred evenings [and] mornings; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. 15It happened, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, that I sought to understand it; and behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. 16I heard a man's voice between [the banks of] the Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. 17So he came near where I stood; and when he came, I was frightened, and fell on my face: but he said to me, Understand, son of man; for the vision belongs to the time of the end. 18Now as he was speaking with me, I fell into a deep sleep with my face toward the ground; but he touched me, and set me upright. 19He said, Behold, I will make you know what shall be in the latter time of the indignation; for it belongs to the appointed time of the end. 20The ram which you saw, that had (Baal) the two horns, they are the kings of Media and Persia. 21The rough male goat is the king of Greece: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king. 22As for that which was broken, in the place where four stood up, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not with his power.

Section 4

Revelation Chapter 16

7I heard the altar saying, "Yes, Lord (Kurios) God, the Almighty (Pantokrator) , true and righteous are your judgments." 8The fourth poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was given to him to scorch men with fire. 9People were scorched with great heat, and people blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues. They didn't repent and give him glory. 10The fifth poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was darkened. They gnawed their tongues because of the pain, 11and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores. They didn't repent of their works. 12The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates. Its water was dried up, that the way might be prepared for the kings that come from the sunrise. 13I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, something like frogs; 14for they are spirits of demons, performing signs; which go forth to the kings of the whole inhabited earth, to gather them together for the war of that great day of God, the Almighty (Pantokrator) . 15"Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his clothes, so that he doesn't walk naked, and they see his shame." 16He gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew, Megiddo. 17The seventh poured out his bowl into the air. A loud voice came forth out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done!" 18There were lightnings, sounds, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since there were men on the earth, so great an earthquake, so mighty. 19The great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered in the sight of God, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20Every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21Great hailstones, about the weight of a talent, came down out of the sky on people. People blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for this plague is exceedingly severe.
