Psalms 1:1-36:1

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked, and standeth not in the way of sinners, and sitteth not in the seat of scorners; 2 But his delight is in Jehovah`s law, and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he [is] as a tree planted by brooks of water, which giveth its fruit in its season, and whose leaf fadeth not; and all that he doeth prospereth. 4 The wicked are not so; but are as the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6 For Jehovah knoweth the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked shall perish.

Psalms 2:1-36:1

1 Why are the nations in tumultuous agitation, and [why] do the peoples meditate a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the princes plot together, against Jehovah and against his anointed: 3 Let us break their bonds asunder, and cast away their cords from us! 4 He that dwelleth in the heavens shall laugh, the Lord shall have them in derision. 5 Then will he speak to them in his anger, and in his fierce displeasure will he terrify them: 6 And *I* have anointed my king upon Zion, the hill of my holiness. 7 I will declare the decree: Jehovah hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; *I* this day have begotten thee. 8 Ask of me, and I will give thee nations for an inheritance, and for thy possession the ends of the earth: 9 Thou shalt break them with a sceptre of iron, as a potter`s vessel thou shalt dash them in pieces. 10 And now, O kings, be ye wise, be admonished, ye judges of the earth. 11 Serve Jehovah with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way, though his anger burn but a little. Blessed are all who have their trust in him.

Psalms 3:1-36:1

1 {A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.} Jehovah, how many are they that trouble me, many they that rise up against me! 2 Many say of my soul, There is no salvation for him in God. Selah. 3 But thou, Jehovah, art a shield about me; my glory, and the lifter up of my head. 4 With my voice will I call to Jehovah, and he will answer me from the hill of his holiness. Selah. 5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked, for Jehovah sustaineth me. 6 I will not fear for myriads of the people that have set themselves against me round about. 7 Arise, Jehovah; save me, my God! For thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheekbone, thou hast broken the teeth of the wicked. 8 Salvation is of Jehovah; thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

Psalms 4:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. On stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.} When I call, answer me, O God of my righteousness: in pressure thou hast enlarged me; be gracious unto me, and hear my prayer. 2 Ye sons of men, till when is my glory [to be put] to shame? [How long] will ye love vanity, will ye seek after a lie? Selah. 3 But know that Jehovah hath set apart the pious [man] for himself: Jehovah will hear when I call unto him. 4 Be moved with anger, and sin not; meditate in your own hearts upon your bed, and be still. Selah. 5 Offer sacrifices of righteousness, and confide in Jehovah. 6 Many say, Who shall cause us to see good? Lift up upon us the light of thy countenance, O Jehovah. 7 Thou hast put joy in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their new wine was in abundance. 8 In peace will I both lay me down and sleep; for thou, Jehovah, alone makest me to dwell in safety.

Psalms 5:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. Upon Nehiloth. A Psalm of David.} Give ear to my words, O Jehovah; consider my meditation. 2 Hearken unto the voice of my crying, my king and my God; for to thee will I pray. 3 Jehovah, in the morning shalt thou hear my voice; in the morning will I address myself to thee, and will look up. 4 For thou art not a ?God that hath pleasure in wickedness; evil shall not sojourn with thee. 5 Insolent fools shall not stand before thine eyes; thou hatest all workers of iniquity. 6 Thou wilt destroy them that speak lies: Jehovah abhorreth a man of blood and deceit. 7 But as for me, in the greatness of thy loving-kindness will I enter thy house; I will bow down toward the temple of thy holiness in thy fear. 8 Lead me, Jehovah, in thy righteousness, because of my foes; make thy way plain before me. 9 For there is no certainty in their mouth; their inward part is perversion, their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue. 10 Bring guilt upon them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels: drive them out in the multitude of their transgressions, for they have rebelled against thee. 11 And all that trust in thee shall rejoice: for ever shall they shout joyously, and thou wilt protect them; and they that love thy name shall exult in thee. 12 For thou, Jehovah, wilt bless the righteous [man]; with favour wilt thou surround him as [with] a shield.

Psalms 6:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. On stringed instruments, upon Sheminith. A Psalm of David.} Jehovah, rebuke me not in thine anger, and chasten me not in thy hot displeasure. 2 Be gracious unto me, Jehovah, for I am withered; Jehovah, heal me, for my bones tremble. 3 And my soul trembleth exceedingly: and thou, Jehovah, till how long? 4 Return, Jehovah, free my soul; save me for thy loving-kindness` sake. 5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee; in Sheol who shall give thanks unto thee? 6 I am wearied with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I dissolve my couch with my tears. 7 Mine eye wasteth away through grief; it hath grown old because of all mine oppressors. 8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for Jehovah hath heard the voice of my weeping. 9 Jehovah hath heard my supplication; Jehovah receiveth my prayer. 10 All mine enemies shall be ashamed and tremble exceedingly; they will turn, they will be ashamed suddenly.

Psalms 7:1-36:1

1 {Shiggaion of David, which he sang to Jehovah, concerning the words of Cush the Benjaminite.} Jehovah my God, in thee have I trusted: save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me; 2 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, crushing it while there is no deliverer. 3 Jehovah my God, if I have done this, if there be iniquity in my hands; 4 If I have rewarded evil to him that was at peace with me; (indeed I have freed him that without cause oppressed me;) 5 Let the enemy pursue after my soul, and take [it], and let him tread down my life to the earth, and lay my glory in the dust. Selah. 6 Arise, Jehovah, in thine anger; lift thyself up against the raging of mine oppressors, and awake for me: thou hast commanded judgment. 7 And the assembly of the peoples shall encompass thee; and for their sakes return thou on high. 8 Jehovah shall minister judgment to the peoples. Judge me, Jehovah, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity which is in me. 9 Oh let the wrong of the wicked come to an end, and establish thou the righteous [man]; even thou that triest the hearts and reins, the righteous God. 10 My shield is with God, who saveth the upright in heart. 11 God is a righteous judge, and a ?God who is indignant all the day. 12 If one turn not, he will sharpen his sword; he hath bent his bow and made it ready, 13 And he hath prepared for him instruments of death; his arrows hath he made burning. 14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, yea, he hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood: 15 He digged a pit, and hollowed it out, and is fallen into the hole that he made. 16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violence shall come down upon his own pate. 17 I will praise Jehovah according to his righteousness, and will sing forth the name of Jehovah the Most High.

Psalms 8:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. Upon the Gittith. A Psalm of David.} Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy majesty above the heavens. 2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established praise because of thine adversaries, to still the enemy and the avenger. 3 When I see thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and stars, which thou hast established; 4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and splendour. 6 Thou hast made him to rule over the works of thy hands; thou hast put everything under his feet: 7 Sheep and oxen, all of them, and also the beasts of the field; 8 The fowl of the heavens, and the fishes of the sea, [whatever] passeth through the paths of the seas. 9 Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Psalms 9:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. Upon Muthlabben. A Psalm of David.} I will praise Jehovah with my whole heart; I will recount all thy marvellous works. 2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee; I will sing forth thy name, O Most High. 3 When mine enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished at thy presence: 4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause. Thou sittest on the throne, judging righteously. 5 Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked; thou hast put out their name for ever and ever. 6 O enemy! destructions are ended for ever. -- Thou hast also destroyed cities, even the remembrance of them hath perished. 7 But Jehovah sitteth for ever; he hath ordained his throne for judgment. 8 And it is he that will judge the world with righteousness; he shall execute judgment upon the peoples with equity. 9 And Jehovah will be a refuge to the oppressed one, a refuge in times of distress. 10 And they that know thy name will confide in thee; for thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. 11 Sing psalms to Jehovah who dwelleth in Zion; tell among the peoples his doings. 12 For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them; the cry of the afflicted ones hath he not forgotten. 13 Be gracious unto me, O Jehovah; consider mine affliction from them that hate me, lifting me up from the gates of death: 14 That I may declare all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will be joyful in thy salvation. 15 The nations are sunk down in the pit [that] they made; in the net that they hid is their own foot taken. 16 Jehovah is known [by] the judgment he hath executed: the wicked is ensnared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. 17 The wicked shall be turned into Sheol, all the nations that forget God. 18 For the needy one shall not be forgotten alway; the hope of the meek shall not perish for ever. 19 Arise, Jehovah; let not man prevail: let the nations be judged in thy sight. 20 Put them in fear, Jehovah: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

Psalms 10:1-36:1

1 Why, Jehovah, standest thou afar off? [Why] hidest thou thyself in times of distress? 2 The wicked, in his pride, doth hotly pursue the afflicted. They shall be taken in the devices that they have imagined. 3 For the wicked boasteth of his soul`s desire, and he blesseth the covetous; he contemneth Jehovah. 4 The wicked [saith], in the haughtiness of his countenance, He doth not search out: all his thoughts are, There is no God! 5 His ways always succeed; thy judgments are far above out of his sight; [as for] all his adversaries, he puffeth at them. 6 He saith in his heart, I shall not be moved; from generation to generation I shall be in no adversity. 7 His mouth is full of cursing, and deceit, and oppression; under his tongue is mischief and iniquity. 8 He sitteth in the lurking-places of the villages; in the secret places doth he slay the innocent: his eyes watch for the wretched. 9 He lieth in wait secretly, like a lion in his thicket; he lieth in wait to catch the afflicted: he doth catch the afflicted, drawing him into his net. 10 He croucheth, he boweth down, that the wretched may fall by his strong ones. 11 He saith in his heart, ?God hath forgotten, he hideth his face, he will never see [it]. 12 Arise, Jehovah; O ?God, lift up thy hand: forget not the afflicted. 13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? He hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require [it]. 14 Thou hast seen [it], for thou thyself beholdest trouble and vexation, to requite by thy hand. The wretched committeth himself unto thee; thou hast been the helper of the fatherless. 15 Break thou the arm of the wicked, and as for the evil man, seek out his wickedness [till] thou find none. 16 Jehovah is King for ever and ever: the nations have perished out of his land. 17 Jehovah, thou hast heard the desire of the meek, thou hast established their heart: thou causest thine ear to hear, 18 To do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed one, that the man of the earth may terrify no more.

Psalms 11:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. [A Psalm] of David.} In Jehovah have I put my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee [as] a bird to your mountain? 2 For behold, the wicked bend the bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may in darkness shoot at the upright in heart. 3 If the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do? 4 Jehovah [is] in the temple of his holiness; Jehovah, -- his throne is in the heavens: his eyes behold, his eyelids try the children of men. 5 Jehovah trieth the righteous one; but the wicked, and him that loveth violence, his soul hateth. 6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone; and scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup. 7 For righteous is Jehovah; he loveth righteousness, his countenance doth behold the upright.

Psalms 12:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. Upon Sheminith. A Psalm of David.} Save, Jehovah, for the godly man is gone; for the faithful have failed from among the children of men. 2 They speak falsehood every one with his neighbour: [with] flattering lip, with a double heart, do they speak. 3 Jehovah will cut off all flattering lips, the tongue that speaketh proud things, 4 Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail, our lips are our own: who [is] lord over us? 5 Because of the oppression of the afflicted, because of the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith Jehovah, I will set [him] in safety, at whom they puff. 6 The words of Jehovah are pure words, silver tried in the furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou, Jehovah, wilt keep them, thou wilt preserve them from this generation for ever. 8 The wicked walk about on every side, when vileness is exalted among the children of men.

Psalms 13:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} How long, Jehovah, wilt thou forget me for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me? 2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, with sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? 3 Consider, answer me, O Jehovah my God! lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the [sleep of] death; 4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him! [lest] mine adversaries be joyful when I am moved. 5 As for me, I have confided in thy loving-kindness; my heart shall be joyful in thy salvation. 6 I will sing unto Jehovah, for he hath dealt bountifully with me.

Psalms 14:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. [A Psalm] of David.} The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They have corrupted themselves, they have done abominable works: there is none that doeth good. 2 Jehovah looked down from the heavens upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. 3 They have all gone aside, they are together become corrupt: there is none that doeth good, not even one. 4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, eating up my people [as] they eat bread? They call not upon Jehovah. 5 There were they in great fear; for God is in the generation of the righteous. 6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the afflicted, because Jehovah [was] his refuge. 7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When Jehovah turneth again the captivity of his people, Jacob shall be glad, Israel shall rejoice.

Psalms 15:1-36:1

1 {A Psalm of David.} Jehovah, who shall sojourn in thy tent? who shall dwell in the hill of thy holiness? 2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth from his heart. 3 [He that] slandereth not with his tongue, doeth not evil to his companion, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour; 4 In whose eyes the depraved person is contemned, and who honoureth them that fear Jehovah; who, if he have sworn to his own hurt, changeth it not; 5 [He that] putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these [things] shall never be moved.

Psalms 16:1-36:1

1 {Michtam of David.} Preserve me, O ?God: for I trust in thee. 2 Thou [my soul] hast said to Jehovah, Thou art the Lord: my goodness [extendeth] not to thee; -- 3 To the saints that are on the earth, and to the excellent [thou hast said], In them is all my delight. 4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another: their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, and I will not take up their names into my lips. 5 Jehovah is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. 6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. 7 I will bless Jehovah, who giveth me counsel; even in the nights my reins instruct me. 8 I have set Jehovah continually before me; because [he is] at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart rejoiceth, and my glory exulteth; my flesh moreover shall dwell in hope. 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul to Sheol, neither wilt thou allow thy Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt make known to me the path of life: thy countenance is fulness of joy; at thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.

Psalms 17:1-36:1

1 {A Prayer of David.} Hear the right, O Jehovah, attend unto my cry; give ear unto my prayer, which is not out of feigned lips. 2 Let my judgment come forth from thy presence, let thine eyes regard equity. 3 Thou hast proved my heart, thou hast visited me by night; thou hast tried me, thou hast found nothing: my thought goeth not beyond my word. 4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept from the paths of the violent [man]. 5 When thou holdest my goings in thy paths, my footsteps slip not. 6 I have called upon thee, for thou answerest me, O ?God. Incline thine ear unto me, hear my speech. 7 Shew wondrously thy loving-kindnesses, O thou that savest by thy right hand them that trust [in thee] from those that rise up [against them]. 8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, 9 From the wicked that destroy me, my deadly enemies, who compass me about. 10 They are enclosed in their own fat; with their mouth they speak proudly. 11 They have now encompassed us in our steps; their eyes have they set, bowing down to the earth. 12 He is like a lion that is greedy of its prey, and as a young lion lurking in secret places. 13 Arise, Jehovah, anticipate him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, thy sword; 14 From men [who are] thy hand, O Jehovah, from men of this age: their portion is in [this] life, and their belly thou fillest with thy hid [treasure]; they have their fill of sons, and leave the rest of their [substance] to their children. 15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

Psalms 18:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. [A Psalm] of David, the servant of Jehovah, who spoke to Jehovah the words of this song in the day that Jehovah had delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies and out of the hand of Saul. And he said,} I will love thee, O Jehovah, my strength. 2 Jehovah is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my ?God, my rock, in whom I will trust; my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower. 3 I will call upon Jehovah, who is to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. 4 The bands of death encompassed me, and torrents of Belial made me afraid. 5 The bands of Sheol surrounded me, the cords of death encountered me. 6 In my distress I called upon Jehovah, and I cried out to my God; he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, into his ears. 7 Then the earth shook and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains trembled and shook, because he was wroth. 8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals burned forth from it. 9 And he bowed the heavens, and came down; and darkness was under his feet. 10 And he rode upon a cherub and did fly; yea, he flew fast upon the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness his secret place, his tent round about him: darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies. 12 From the brightness before him his thick clouds passed forth: hail and coals of fire. 13 And Jehovah thundered in the heavens, and the Most High uttered his voice: hail and coals of fire. 14 And he sent his arrows, and scattered [mine enemies]; and he shot forth lightnings, and discomfited them. 15 And the beds of the waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were uncovered at thy rebuke, Jehovah, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. 16 He reached forth from above, he took me, he drew me out of great waters: 17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me; for they were mightier than I. 18 They encountered me in the day of my calamity, but Jehovah was my stay. 19 And he brought me forth into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me. 20 Jehovah hath rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. 21 For I have kept the ways of Jehovah, and have not wickedly departed from my God. 22 For all his ordinances were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me; 23 And I was upright with him, and kept myself from mine iniquity. 24 And Jehovah hath recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight. 25 With the gracious thou dost shew thyself gracious; with the upright man thou dost shew thyself upright; 26 With the pure thou dost shew thyself pure; and with the perverse thou dost shew thyself contrary. 27 For it is thou that savest the afflicted people; but the haughty eyes wilt thou bring down. 28 For it is thou that makest my lamp to shine: Jehovah my God enlighteneth my darkness. 29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. 30 As for ?God, his way is perfect; the word of Jehovah is tried: he is a shield to all that trust in him. 31 For who is +God save Jehovah? and who is a rock if not our God? 32 The ?God who girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect, 33 Who maketh my feet like hinds` [feet], and setteth me upon my high places; 34 Who teacheth my hands to war, and mine arms bend a bow of brass; 35 And thou didst give me the shield of thy salvation, and thy right hand held me up; and thy condescending gentleness hath made me great. 36 Thou didst enlarge my steps under me, and mine ankles have not wavered. 37 I pursued mine enemies, and overtook them; and I turned not again till they were consumed. 38 I crushed them, and they were not able to rise: they fell under my feet. 39 And thou girdedst me with strength to battle; thou didst subdue under me those that rose up against me. 40 And mine enemies didst thou make to turn their backs unto me, and those that hated me I destroyed. 41 They cried, and there was none to save; -- unto Jehovah, and he answered them not. 42 And I did beat them small as dust before the wind; I did cast them out as the mire of the streets. 43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; thou hast made me the head of the nations: a people I knew not doth serve me. 44 At the hearing of the ear, they obey me: strangers come cringing unto me. 45 Strangers have faded away, and they come trembling forth from their close places. 46 Jehovah liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of my salvation, 47 The ?God who hath avenged me, and hath subjected the peoples to me; 48 Who hath delivered me from mine enemies: yea, thou hast lifted me up above them that rose up against me; from the man of violence hast thou delivered me. 49 Therefore will I give thanks to thee, Jehovah, among the nations, and will sing psalms to thy name. 50 [It is he] who giveth great deliverances to his king, and sheweth loving-kindness to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.

Psalms 19:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} The heavens declare the glory of ?God; and the expanse sheweth the work of his hands. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech and there are no words, yet their voice is heard. 4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their language to the extremity of the world. In them hath he set a tent for the sun, 5 And he is as a bridegroom going forth from his chamber; he rejoiceth as a strong man to run the race. 6 His going forth is from the end of the heavens, and his circuit unto the ends of it; and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. 7 The law of Jehovah is perfect, restoring the soul; the testimony of Jehovah is sure, making wise the simple; 8 The precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of Jehovah is pure, enlightening the eyes; 9 The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring for ever; the judgments of Jehovah are truth, they are righteous altogether: 10 They are more precious than gold, yea, than much fine gold; and sweeter than honey and the dropping of the honeycomb. 11 Moreover, by them is thy servant enlightened; in keeping them there is great reward. 12 Who understandeth [his] errors? Purify me from secret [faults]. 13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous [sins]; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be perfect, and I shall be innocent from great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Jehovah, my rock, and my redeemer.

Psalms 20:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} Jehovah answer thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob protect thee; 2 May he send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion; 3 Remember all thine oblations, and accept thy burnt-offering; Selah. 4 Grant thee according to thy heart, and fulfil all thy counsels. 5 We will triumph in thy salvation, and in the name of our God will we set up our banners. Jehovah fulfil all thy petitions! 6 Now know I that Jehovah saveth his anointed; he answereth him from the heavens of his holiness, with the saving strength of his right hand. 7 Some make mention of chariots, and some of horses, but we of the name of Jehovah our God. 8 They are bowed down and fallen; but we are risen and stand upright. 9 Save, Jehovah! Let the king answer us in the day we call.

Psalms 21:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} The king shall joy in thy strength, Jehovah; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice. 2 Thou hast given him his heart`s desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah. 3 For thou hast met him with the blessings of goodness; thou hast set a crown of pure gold on his head. 4 He asked life of thee; thou gavest [it] him, length of days for ever and ever. 5 His glory is great through thy salvation; majesty and splendour hast thou laid upon him. 6 For thou hast made him to be blessings for ever; thou hast filled him with joy by thy countenance. 7 For the king confideth in Jehovah: and through the loving-kindness of the Most High he shall not be moved. 8 Thy hand shall find out all thine enemies; thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. 9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery furnace in the time of thy presence; Jehovah shall swallow them up in his anger, and the fire shall devour them: 10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men. 11 For they intended evil against thee; they imagined a mischievous device, which they could not execute. 12 For thou wilt make them turn their back; thou wilt make ready thy bowstring against their face. 13 Be thou exalted, Jehovah, in thine own strength: we will sing and celebrate thy power.

Psalms 22:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. Upon Aijeleth-Shahar. A Psalm of David.} My ?God, my ?God, why hast thou forsaken me? [why art thou] far from my salvation, from the words of my groaning? 2 My God, I cry by day, and thou answerest not; and by night, and there is no rest for me: 3 And thou art holy, thou that dwellest amid the praises of Israel. 4 Our fathers confided in thee: they confided, and thou didst deliver them. 5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered; they confided in thee, and were not confounded. 6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and the despised of the people. 7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn; they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, [saying:] 8 Commit it to Jehovah -- let him rescue him; let him deliver him, because he delighteth in him! 9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb; thou didst make me trust, upon my mother`s breasts. 10 I was cast upon thee from the womb; thou art my ?God from my mother`s belly. 11 Be not far from me, for trouble is near; for there is none to help. 12 Many bulls have encompassed me; Bashan`s strong ones have beset me round. 13 They gape upon me with their mouth, [as] a ravening and a roaring lion. 14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is become like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue cleaveth to my palate; and thou hast laid me in the dust of death. 16 For dogs have encompassed me; an assembly of evil-doers have surrounded me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I may count all my bones. They look, they stare upon me; 18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. 19 But thou, Jehovah, be not far [from me]; O my strength, haste thee to help me. 20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my only one from the power of the dog; 21 Save me from the lion`s mouth. Yea, from the horns of the buffaloes hast thou answered me. 22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. 23 Ye that fear Jehovah, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and revere him, all ye the seed of Israel. 24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him: but when he cried unto him, he heard. 25 My praise is from thee, in the great congregation; I will pay my vows before them that fear him. 26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied; they shall praise Jehovah that seek him: your heart shall live for ever. 27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto Jehovah, and all the families of the nations shall worship before thee: 28 For the kingdom is Jehovah`s, and he ruleth among the nations. 29 All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship; all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him, and he that cannot keep alive his own soul. 30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation. 31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done [it].

Psalms 23:1-36:1

1 {A Psalm of David.} Jehovah is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in paths of righteousness for his name`s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou hast anointed my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely, goodness and loving-kindness shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of Jehovah for the length of the days.

Psalms 24:1-36:1

1 {Of David. A Psalm.} The earth is Jehovah`s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. 2 For it was he that founded it upon seas, and established it upon floods. 3 Who shall ascend into the mount of Jehovah? and who shall stand in his holy place? 4 He that hath blameless hands and a pure heart; who lifteth not up his soul unto vanity, nor sweareth deceitfully: 5 He shall receive blessing from Jehovah, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek unto him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. 7 Lift up your heads, ye gates, and be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors, and the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? Jehovah strong and mighty, Jehovah mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, ye gates; yea, lift up, ye everlasting doors, and the King of glory shall come in. 10 Who is he, this King of glory? Jehovah of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

Psalms 25:1-36:1

1 {[A Psalm] of David.} Unto thee, Jehovah, do I lift up my soul. 2 My God, I confide in thee; let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. 3 Yea, none that wait on thee shall be ashamed: they shall be ashamed that deal treacherously without cause. 4 Make me to know thy ways, O Jehovah; teach me thy paths. 5 Make me to walk in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. 6 Remember, Jehovah, thy tender mercies and thy loving-kindnesses; for they are from everlasting. 7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; according to thy loving-kindness remember thou me, for thy goodness` sake, Jehovah. 8 Good and upright is Jehovah; therefore will he instruct sinners in the way: 9 The meek will he guide in judgment, and the meek will he teach his way. 10 All the paths of Jehovah are loving-kindness and truth for such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. 11 For thy name`s sake, O Jehovah, thou wilt indeed pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. 12 What man is he that feareth Jehovah? him will he instruct in the way [that] he should choose. 13 His soul shall dwell in prosperity, and his seed shall inherit the earth. 14 The secret of Jehovah is with them that fear him, that he may make known his covenant to them. 15 Mine eyes are ever toward Jehovah; for he will bring my feet out of the net. 16 Turn toward me, and be gracious unto me; for I am solitary and afflicted. 17 The troubles of my heart are increased: bring me out of my distresses; 18 Consider mine affliction and my travail, and forgive all my sins. 19 Consider mine enemies, for they are many, and they hate me [with] cruel hatred. 20 Keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I trust in thee. 21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee. 22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

Psalms 26:1-36:1

1 {[A Psalm] of David.} Judge me, O Jehovah, for I have walked in mine integrity, and I have confided in Jehovah: I shall not slip. 2 Prove me, Jehovah, and test me; try my reins and my heart: 3 For thy loving-kindness is before mine eyes, and I have walked in thy truth. 4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither have I gone in with dissemblers; 5 I have hated the congregation of evil-doers, and I have not sat with the wicked. 6 I will wash my hands in innocency, and will encompass thine altar, O Jehovah, 7 That I may cause the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, and declare all thy marvellous works. 8 Jehovah, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thy glory dwelleth. 9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with men of blood; 10 In whose hands are evil devices, and their right hand is full of bribes. 11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity. Redeem me, and be gracious unto me. 12 My foot standeth in an even place; in the congregations will I bless Jehovah.

Psalms 27:1-36:1

1 {[A Psalm] of David.} Jehovah is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When evil-doers, mine adversaries and mine enemies, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. 3 If a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; if war rise against me, in this will I be confident. 4 One [thing] have I asked of Jehovah, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of Jehovah, and to inquire [of him] in his temple. 5 For in the day of evil he will hide me in his pavilion; in the secret of his tent will he keep me concealed: he will set me high upon a rock. 6 And now shall my head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me; and I will offer in his tent sacrifices of shouts of joy: I will sing, yea, I will sing psalms unto Jehovah. 7 Hear, Jehovah; with my voice do I call; be gracious unto me, and answer me. 8 My heart said for thee, Seek ye my face. Thy face, O Jehovah, will I seek. 9 Hide not thy face from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; cast me not off, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. 10 For had my father and my mother forsaken me, then had Jehovah taken me up. 11 Teach me thy way, Jehovah, and lead me in an even path, because of mine enemies. 12 Deliver me not over to the will of mine adversaries; for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out violence. 13 Unless I had believed to see the goodness of Jehovah in the land of the living ...! 14 Wait for Jehovah; be strong and let thy heart take courage: yea, wait for Jehovah.

Psalms 28:1-36:1

1 {[A Psalm] of David.} Unto thee, Jehovah, do I call; my rock, be not silent unto me, lest, [if] thou keep silence toward me, I become like them that go down into the pit. 2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward the oracle of thy holiness. 3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace to their neighbours, and mischief is in their heart. 4 Give them according to their doing, and according to the wickedness of their deeds; give them after the work of their hands, render to them their desert. 5 For they regard not the deeds of Jehovah, nor the work of his hands: he will destroy them, and not build them up. 6 Blessed be Jehovah, for he hath heard the voice of my supplications. 7 Jehovah is my strength and my shield; my heart confided in him, and I was helped: therefore my heart exulteth, and with my song will I praise him. 8 Jehovah is their strength; and he is the stronghold of salvation to his anointed one. 9 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance; and feed them, and lift them up for ever.

Psalms 29:1-36:1

1 {A Psalm of David.} Give unto Jehovah, ye sons of the mighty ones, give unto Jehovah glory and strength; 2 Give unto Jehovah the glory of his name; worship Jehovah in holy splendour. 3 The voice of Jehovah is upon the waters: the ?God of glory thundereth, -- Jehovah upon great waters. 4 The voice of Jehovah is powerful; the voice of Jehovah is full of majesty. 5 The voice of Jehovah breaketh cedars; yea, Jehovah breaketh the cedars of Lebanon: 6 And he maketh them to skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young buffalo. 7 The voice of Jehovah cleaveth out flames of fire. 8 The voice of Jehovah shaketh the wilderness; Jehovah shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh. 9 The voice of Jehovah maketh the hinds to calve, and layeth bare the forests; and in his temple doth every one say, Glory! 10 Jehovah sitteth upon the flood; yea, Jehovah sitteth as king for ever. 11 Jehovah will give strength unto his people; Jehovah will bless his people with peace.

Psalms 30:1-36:1

1 {A Psalm of David: dedication-song of the house.} I will extol thee, Jehovah; for thou hast delivered me, and hast not made mine enemies to rejoice over me. 2 Jehovah my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. 3 Jehovah, thou hast brought up my soul from Sheol, thou hast quickened me from among those that go down to the pit. 4 Sing psalms unto Jehovah, ye saints of his, and give thanks in remembrance of his holiness. 5 For a moment [is passed] in his anger, a life in his favour; at even weeping cometh for the night, and at morn there is rejoicing. 6 As for me, I said in my prosperity, I shall never be moved. 7 Jehovah, by thy favour thou hadst made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face; I was troubled. 8 I called to thee, Jehovah, and unto the Lord did I make supplication: 9 What profit is there in my blood, in my going down to the pit? shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth? 10 Hear, O Jehovah, and be gracious unto me; Jehovah, be my helper. 11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; thou hast loosed my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; 12 That [my] glory may sing psalms of thee, and not be silent. Jehovah my God, I will praise thee for ever.

Psalms 31:1-36:1

1 {To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} In thee, Jehovah, do I trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. 2 Incline thine ear to me, deliver me speedily; be a strong rock to me, a house of defence to save me. 3 For thou art my rock and my fortress; and, for thy name`s sake, thou wilt lead me and guide me. 4 Draw me out of the net that they have hidden for me; for thou art my strength. 5 Into thy hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, Jehovah, [thou] ?God of truth. 6 I have hated them that observe lying vanities; and as for me, I have confided in Jehovah. 7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy loving-kindness, for thou hast seen mine affliction; thou hast known the troubles of my soul, 8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large place. 9 Be gracious unto me, Jehovah, for I am in trouble: mine eye wasteth away with vexation, my soul and my belly. 10 For my life is spent with sorrow, and my years with sighing; my strength faileth through mine iniquity, and my bones are wasted. 11 More than to all mine oppressors, I am become exceedingly a reproach, even to my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that see me without flee from me. 12 I am forgotten in [their] heart as a dead man; I am become like a broken vessel. 13 For I have heard the slander of many -- terror on every side -- when they take counsel together against me: they plot to take away my life. 14 But I confided in thee, Jehovah; I said, thou art my God. 15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from my persecutors. 16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; save me in thy loving-kindness. 17 Jehovah, let me not be ashamed; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, let them be silent in Sheol. 18 Let the lying lips become dumb, which speak insolently against the righteous in pride and contempt. 19 [Oh] how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee, [which] thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee, before the sons of men! 20 Thou keepest them concealed in the secret of thy presence from the conspiracies of man; thou hidest them in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. 21 Blessed be Jehovah; for he hath shewn me wondrously his loving-kindness in a strong city. 22 As for me, I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes; nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee. 23 Love Jehovah, all ye his saints. Jehovah preserveth the faithful, and plentifully requiteth the proud doer. 24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all ye that hope in Jehovah.

Psalms 32:1-36:1

1 {Of David. Instruction.} Blessed is he [whose] transgression is forgiven, [whose] sin is covered! 2 Blessed is the man unto whom Jehovah reckoneth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile! 3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old, through my groaning all the day long. 4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me; my moisture was turned into the drought of summer. Selah. 5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity I covered not; I said, I will confess my transgressions unto Jehovah, and *thou* forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. 6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee at a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they will not reach him. 7 Thou art a hiding-place for me; thou preservest me from trouble; thou dost encompass me with songs of deliverance. Selah. 8 I will instruct thee and teach thee the way in which thou shalt go; I will counsel [thee] with mine eye upon thee. 9 Be ye not as a horse, as a mule, which have no understanding: whose trappings must be bit and bridle, for restraint, or they will not come unto thee. 10 Many sorrows hath the wicked; but he that confideth in Jehovah, loving-kindness shall encompass him. 11 Rejoice in Jehovah, and be glad, ye righteous; and shout for joy, all ye upright in heart.

Psalms 33:1-36:1

1 Exult, ye righteous, in Jehovah: praise is comely for the upright. 2 Give thanks unto Jehovah with the harp; sing psalms unto him with the ten-stringed lute. 3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud sound. 4 For the word of Jehovah is right, and all his work is in faithfulness. 5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the loving-kindness of Jehovah. 6 By the word of Jehovah were the heavens made, and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap; he layeth up the deeps in storehouses. 8 Let all the earth fear Jehovah; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9 For *he* spoke, and it was [done]; *he* commanded, and it stood fast. 10 Jehovah frustrateth the counsel of the nations; he maketh the thoughts of the peoples of none effect. 11 The counsel of Jehovah standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation. 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is Jehovah, the people that he hath chosen for his inheritance! 13 Jehovah looketh from the heavens; he beholdeth all the sons of men: 14 From the place of his habitation he looketh forth upon all the inhabitants of the earth; 15 He who fashioneth the hearts of them all, who considereth all their works. 16 The king is not saved by the multitude of [his] forces; a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. 17 The horse is a vain thing for safety; neither doth he deliver by his great power. 18 Behold, the eye of Jehovah is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his loving-kindness, 19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. 20 Our soul waiteth for Jehovah: he is our help and our shield. 21 For in him shall our heart rejoice, because we have confided in his holy name. 22 Let thy loving-kindness, O Jehovah, be upon us, according as we have hoped in thee.

Psalms 34:1-36:1

1 {[A Psalm] of David; when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.} I will bless Jehovah at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make its boast in Jehovah: the meek shall hear, and rejoice. 3 Magnify Jehovah with me, and let us exalt his name together. 4 I sought Jehovah, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5 They looked unto him, and were enlightened, and their faces were not confounded. 6 This afflicted one called, and Jehovah heard [him], and saved him out of all his troubles. 7 The angel of Jehovah encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. 8 Taste and see that Jehovah is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him! 9 Fear Jehovah, ye his saints; for there is no want to them that fear him. 10 The young lions are in need and suffer hunger; but they that seek Jehovah shall not want any good. 11 Come, ye sons, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of Jehovah. 12 What man is he that desireth life, [and] loveth days, that he may see good? 13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile; 14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. 15 The eyes of Jehovah are upon the righteous, and his ears are toward their cry; 16 The face of Jehovah is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth: 17 [The righteous] cry, and Jehovah heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18 Jehovah is nigh to those that are of a broken heart, and saveth them that are of a contrite spirit. 19 Many are the adversities of the righteous, but Jehovah delivereth him out of them all: 20 He keepeth all his bones; not one of them is broken. 21 Evil shall destroy the wicked; and they that hate the righteous shall bear their guilt. 22 Jehovah redeemeth the soul of his servants; and none of them that trust in him shall bear guilt.

Psalms 35:1-36:1

1 {[A Psalm] of David.} Strive, O Jehovah, with them that strive with me; fight against them that fight against me: 2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for my help; 3 And draw out the spear, and stop [the way] against my pursuers: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation. 4 Let them be put to shame and confounded that seek after my life; let them be turned backward and brought to confusion that devise my hurt: 5 Let them be as chaff before the wind, and let the angel of Jehovah drive [them] away; 6 Let their way be dark and slippery, and let the angel of Jehovah pursue them. 7 For without cause have they hidden for me their net [in] a pit; without cause they have digged [it] for my soul. 8 Let destruction come upon him unawares, and let his net which he hath hidden catch himself: for destruction let him fall therein. 9 And my soul shall be joyful in Jehovah; it shall rejoice in his salvation. 10 All my bones shall say, Jehovah, who is like unto thee, who deliverest the afflicted from one stronger than he, yea, the afflicted and the needy from him that spoileth him! 11 Unrighteous witnesses rise up; they lay to my charge things which I know not. 12 They reward me evil for good, [to] the bereavement of my soul. 13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth; I chastened my soul with fasting, and my prayer returned into mine own bosom: 14 I behaved myself as though [he had been] a friend, a brother to me; I bowed down in sadness, as one that mourneth [for] a mother. 15 But at my halting they rejoiced, and gathered together: the slanderers gathered themselves together against me, and I knew [it] not; they did tear [me], and ceased not: 16 With profane jesters for bread, they have gnashed their teeth against me. 17 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? Rescue my soul from their destructions, my only one from the young lions. 18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation; I will praise thee among much people. 19 Let not them that are wrongfully mine enemies rejoice over me; let them not wink with the eye that hate me without cause. 20 For they speak not peace; and they devise deceitful words against the quiet in the land. 21 And they opened their mouth wide against me; they said, Aha! aha! our eye hath seen [it]. 22 Thou hast seen [it], Jehovah: keep not silence; O Lord, be not far from me. 23 Stir up thyself, and awake for my right, for my cause, my God and Lord! 24 Judge me, Jehovah my God, according to thy righteousness, and let them not rejoice over me. 25 Let them not say in their heart, Aha! so would we have it. Let them not say, We have swallowed him up. 26 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine adversity; let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me. 27 Let them exult and rejoice that delight in my righteousness; and let them say continually, Jehovah be magnified, who delighteth in the prosperity of his servant. 28 And my tongue shall talk of thy righteousness, [and] of thy praise, all the day.

Psalms 36:1-1

1 {To the chief Musician. [A Psalm] of the servant of Jehovah; of David.} The transgression of the wicked uttereth within my heart, There is no fear of God before his eyes.

Proverbs 22:6

6 Train up the child according to the tenor of his way, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Leviticus 18:1-30

1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am Jehovah your God. 3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do; and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do; neither shall ye walk in their customs. 4 Mine ordinances shall ye do and my statutes shall ye observe to walk therein: I am Jehovah your God. 5 And ye shall observe my statutes and my judgments, by which the man that doeth them shall live: I am Jehovah. 6 No one shall approach to any that is his near relation, to uncover his nakedness: I am Jehovah. 7 The nakedness of thy father, and the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother: thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 8 The nakedness of thy father`s wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father`s nakedness. 9 The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, born at home, or born abroad -- their nakedness shalt thou not uncover. 10 The nakedness of thy son`s daughter, or of thy daughter`s daughter -- their nakedness shalt thou not uncover; for theirs is thy nakedness. 11 The nakedness of thy father`s wife`s daughter, begotten of thy father: she is thy sister: thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 12 The nakedness of thy father`s sister shalt thou not uncover: she is thy father`s near relation. 13 The nakedness of thy mother`s sister shalt thou not uncover; for she is thy mother`s near relation. 14 The nakedness of thy father`s brother shalt thou not uncover; thou shalt not approach his wife: she is thine aunt. 15 The nakedness of thy daughter-in-law shalt thou not uncover: she is thy son`s wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 16 The nakedness of thy brother`s wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy brother`s nakedness. 17 The nakedness of a woman and her daughter shalt thou not uncover; thou shalt not take her son`s daughter, nor her daughter`s daughter, to uncover her nakedness: they are her near relations: it is wickedness. 18 And thou shalt not take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness beside her, during her life. 19 And thou shalt not approach a woman in the separation of her uncleanness to uncover her nakedness. 20 And thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour`s wife, to become unclean with her. 21 And thou shalt not give of thy seed to let them pass through [the fire] to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am Jehovah. 22 And thou shalt not lie with mankind as one lieth with a woman: it is an abomination. 23 And thou shalt lie with no beast to become unclean therewith; and a woman shall not stand before a beast to lie down with it: it is confusion. 24 Make not yourselves unclean in any of these things; for in all these have the nations which I am casting out before you made themselves unclean. 25 And the land hath become unclean; and I visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land vomiteth out its inhabitants. 26 But *ye* shall observe my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of all these abominations: the home-born, and the stranger that sojourneth among you; 27 (for all these abominations have the men of the land done, who were before you, and the land hath been made unclean); 28 that the land vomit you not out, when ye make it unclean, as it vomited out the nation that was before you. 29 For whoever committeth any of these abominations, ... the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people. 30 And ye shall observe my charge, that ye commit not [any] of the abominable customs which were committed before you; and ye shall not make yourselves unclean therein: I am Jehovah your God.

2 Timothy 2:15

15 Strive diligently to present thyself approved to God, a workman that has not to be ashamed, cutting in a straight line the word of truth.
