Nehemiah 9 Cross References - LEB

1 On the twenty-fourth day of this month the Israelites* gathered in fasting, in sackcloths, and with soil on them. 2 Those of the seed of Israel separated themselves from all of the foreigners and stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their ancestors.* 3 They stood up in their place and read from the book of the law* of Yahweh their God for a fourth part of the day, and for a fourth they were confessing and worshiping Yahweh their God. 4 Then Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Kenani stood on the platform of the Levites and cried out with a loud voice to Yahweh their God. 5 Then the Levites, Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah said, "Stand up, bless Yahweh your God from everlasting until everlasting. Blessed be your glorious name that is being exalted above all blessing and praise! 6 "You alone are Yahweh. You alone have made the heavens, the heavens of the heavens, and all of their army, the earth and all that is in it, the waters and all that is in them. You give life to all of them, and the army of the heavens worship you. 7 You are Yahweh, the God who chose Abram and brought him from Ur of the Chaldeans and named him Abraham. 8 You found his heart faithful before you and made a covenant with him to give the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Jebusite and the Girgashite—to give it to his seed. And you have kept your word because you are righteous. 9 "You saw the misery of our ancestors* in Egypt, and you heard their shout at the Red Sea. 10 You gave signs and wonders against Pharaoh, all of his servants, and all of the people of his land because you knew that they acted arrogantly against them. You made a name for yourself, as it is this day. 11 And you divided the sea before them, and they passed through the sea on dry ground, but their pursuers you threw into the depths like a stone into mighty waters. 12 You led them by day with a column of cloud and with a column of fire by night, to give them light on the way that they were to go. 13 Then you came down on Mount Sinai and spoke with them from heaven and gave them right judgments and true teachings, good regulations and commandments. 14 You made known your holy Sabbath to them and gave them commandments, regulations, and law* by the hand of your servant Moses. 15 You gave them bread from heaven for their starvation, and you caused water to go out from a rock for their thirst. You told them to go in order to take into possession the land that you have sworn by your hand to give to them. 16 "But they and our ancestors* acted arrogantly and stiffened their neck and did not listen to your commandments. 17 They refused to listen and did not remember your wonders that you did among them. They stiffened their neck and in their rebellion determined* to return to their slavery. But you are a God of forgiveness, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger,* abundant in loyal love, so you did not abandon them. 18 Even when they made for themselves a molten idol of a calf and said, 'This is your God who brought you out from Egypt,' and committed great blasphemies. 19 But you in your many mercies did not abandon them in the desert. The column of cloud that was over them in the day did not cease to leave them on the way, and the column of fire by night that gave light to them on the way that they went. 20 And you gave your good Spirit to instruct them and did not withhold your manna from their mouth and gave them water for their thirst. 21 Forty years you sustained them in the desert—they were not in need. Their clothing did not wear out and their feet did not swell. 22 And you gave them kingdoms and nations and allotted them a portion. They took into possession the land of Sihon king of Heshbon and the land of Og king of Bashan. 23 You made their children* numerous like the stars of the heavens and brought them to the land that you told their ancestors* to enter in order to take possession. 24 So the children* went in and took possession of the land. You subdued before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites; you gave them into their hand, and their kings and the nations of the land to do with them according to their pleasure. 25 And they captured fortified cities and a fertile land and took possession of houses filled with every good thing: hewn cisterns, vineyards, olive groves, and many fruit trees. They ate and became full, and they became fat and took delight in your great goodness. 26 "But they rebelled and were rebellious against you and cast your law* behind their back and killed your prophets, who had warned them to turn back to you, and they did great blasphemies. 27 Therefore you gave them into the hand of their enemy, and they brought trouble to them. Then in the time of their trouble they cried out to you, and you heard from the heavens, and according to your great compassions, you gave them saviors, and you saved them from the hand of their enemies. 28 But when they had rest they returned to doing evil before you, and you abandoned them in the hand of their enemies, and they ruled over them. Then they returned and cried out to you, and from the heavens you heard and many times rescued them according to your compassions. 29 You warned them so that they would return to your law.* Yet they acted arrogantly and did not listen to your commandments but sinned against your judgments that a person must do so that they may live. They turned a stubborn shoulder and stiffened their neck and would not listen. 30 You were patient toward them for many years, and you have warned them by your spirit through the hand of your prophets, but they did not listen. So you gave them into the hand of the nations of the lands. 31 But in your great compassions you did not put an end to them, and you did not abandon them. For you are a gracious and compassionate God. 32 "And now our God, the great, mighty, and awesome God who keeps his covenant and loyal love, do not belittle in your presence all of the hardship that is found in us, our kings, our officials, our priests, our prophets, our ancestors,* and all of our people, from the days of the kings of Assyria until this day. 33 You are righteous in everything that has come on us, for you dealt faithfully, and we have acted wickedly. 34 Our kings, our officials, our priests, and our ancestors* did not keep your law* and did not listen to your commandments and statutes that you declared to them. 35 And in their kingdom and in the greatness you gave to them, and in the wide and fertile land that you gave before them, they did not serve you and did not turn from their evil deeds. 36 Behold, we are slaves to this day, and the land that you have given to our ancestors* to eat its fruits and enjoy its goodness—behold, we are slaves in it! 37 Its rich yield goes to the kings whom you have given over us because of our sins, and they are ruling over our dead bodies and our livestock at their pleasure. We are in great trouble. 38 * "Now because of all of this we make a binding written agreement and are writing on the sealed documents the names of our commanders, our Levites, and our priests."

What is this you have done to us by bringing us out from Egypt! 12 Isn't this the word we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, 'Leave us alone so that we can serve Egypt!' because serving Egypt is better for us than our dying in the desert." 13 And Moses said to the people, "You must not be afraid. Stand still and see the salvation of Yahweh, which he will accomplish for you today, because the Egyptians whom you see today you will see never again. 14 Yahweh will fight for you, and you must be quiet."

Exodus 7:1-12:32

1 And Yahweh said to Moses, "See, I have made you as a god to Pharaoh, and Aaron your brother will be your prophet. 2 You will speak all that I will command you, and Aaron your brother will speak to Pharaoh, and he will release the Israelites* from his land. 3 And I myself will harden the heart of Pharaoh, and I will make my signs and my wonders numerous in the land of Egypt. 4 And Pharaoh will not listen to you, and I will put my hand into Egypt and bring out my divisions, my people, the Israelites,* from the land of Egypt with great punishments. 5 And the Egyptians will know that I am Yahweh when I stretch out my hand over Egypt and bring the Israelites* out from their midst." 6 And Moses and Aaron did it; as Yahweh commanded them, so they did. 7 (And Moses was eighty years old,* and Aaron was eighty-three years old* when they spoke to Pharaoh.) 8 And Yahweh said to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 9 "When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, 'Do a wonder for yourselves,' you will say to Aaron, 'Take your staff and throw it before Pharaoh, and it will become a snake.'" 10 And Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and they did so, as Yahweh had commanded. And Aaron threw his staff before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a snake. 11 And Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers, and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did likewise with their secret arts. 12 Each threw down his staff, and they became snakes, and Aaron's staff swallowed up their staffs. 13 And Pharaoh's heart was hard, and he did not listen to them, as Yahweh had said. 14 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Pharaoh's heart is insensitive;* he refuses to release the people. 15 Go to Pharaoh in the morning. Look, he is going out to the water, and you must wait to meet him on the bank of the Nile, and you must take in your hand the staff that was changed into a snake. 16 And you must say to him, 'Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to you, saying, "Release my people that they may serve me in the desert, and, look, you have not listened until now." 17 Thus says Yahweh, "By this you will know that I am Yahweh. Look, I am about to strike with the staff that is in my hand the water that is in the Nile, and it will be changed to blood. 18 And the fish that are in the Nile will die, and the Nile will stink, and the Egyptians will be unable to drink water from the Nile." '" 19 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Say to Aaron, 'Take your staff and stretch your hand out over the waters of Egypt and over their rivers, over their canals, and over their pools and over all of their reservoirs of water, so that they become blood,' and blood will be in all the land of Egypt and in vessels of wood and of stone." 20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as Yahweh had commanded, and he raised the staff and struck the water that was in the Nile before the eyes of Pharaoh and before the eyes of his servants, and all of the water that was in the Nile was changed to blood. 21 And the fish that were in the Nile died, and the Nile stank, and the Egyptians were not able to drink water from the Nile, and the blood was in all the land of Egypt. 22 And the magicians of Egypt did likewise with their secret arts, and Pharaoh's heart was hard, and he did not listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken. 23 And Pharaoh turned and went to his house, and he did not take also this to heart.* 24 And all of the Egyptians dug around the Nile for water to drink, because they were unable to drink from the water of the Nile. 25 And seven days passed after Yahweh struck the Nile.

Exodus 8:1-12:32

1 * And Yahweh said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh, and say to him, 'Thus says Yahweh, "Release my people so that they may serve me." 2 And if you are refusing to release, look, I am going to plague all of your territory with frogs. 3 And the Nile will swarm with frogs, and they will go up and come into your house and into your bedroom* and onto your bed and into the house of your servants and among your people and into your ovens and into your kneading troughs. 4 And the frogs will go up against you and against your people and against all of your servants.'" 5 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Say to Aaron, 'Stretch out your hand with your staff over the rivers, over the canals, and over the pools, and bring up the frogs on the land of Egypt.'" 6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs went up and covered the land of Egypt. 7 And the magicians did likewise with their secret arts, and they brought up frogs over the land of Egypt. 8 And Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron and said, "Pray to Yahweh, and let him remove the frogs from me and from my people, and let me release the people so that they can sacrifice to Yahweh." 9 And Moses said to Pharaoh, "I leave to you the honor* over me. When shall I pray for you and for your servants and for your people to cut off the frogs from you and from your houses? They will be left only in the Nile." 10 And he said, "Tomorrow." And he said, "Let it be according to your word so that you will know that there is no one like Yahweh our God. 11 And the frogs will depart from you and from your house and from your servants. They will be left only in the Nile." 12 And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh, and Moses cried out to Yahweh over the matter of the frogs that he had brought on Pharaoh. 13 And Yahweh did according to the word of Moses, and the frogs died from the houses, from the courtyards, and from the fields. 14 And they piled them in countless heaps,* and the land stank. 15 And Pharaoh saw that there was relief, and he made his heart insensitive,* and he did not listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken. 16 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Say to Aaron, 'Stretch out your staff and strike the dust of the land, and it will become gnats* in all the land of Egypt.'" 17 And he did so, and Aaron stretched out his hand with his staff, and he struck the dust of the land, and it became gnats on the humans and on the animals; all of the dust of the land became gnats in all the land of Egypt. 18 And the magicians did so with their secret arts to bring out the gnats, but they were not able, and the gnats were on the humans and on the animals. 19 And the magicians said to Pharaoh, "It is the finger of God." But the heart of Pharaoh was hard, and he did not listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken. 20 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Start early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh. Look, he is going out to the water, and you must say to him, 'Thus says Yahweh, "Release my people so that they may serve me." 21 But if you are not about to release my people, look, I am about to send out flies among you and among your servants and among your people and in your houses; and the houses of Egypt will fill up with the flies and also the ground that they are on. 22 But on that day I will distinguish* the land of Goshen, where my people are staying, by there not being flies there, so that you will know that I am Yahweh in the midst of the land. 23 And I will put a distinction between my people and your people; this sign will be tomorrow.'" 24 And Yahweh did so, and a severe* swarm of flies came to the house of Pharaoh and the house of his servants and in all the land of Egypt; the land was ruined because of the flies. 25 And Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron, and he said, "Go, sacrifice to your God in the land." 26 And Moses said, "To do so is not right, because we will sacrifice to Yahweh our God a thing detestable to the Egyptians. Look, if we sacrifice before their eyes the thing detestable to the Egyptians, will they not stone us? 27 We will go a journey of three days into the desert, and we will sacrifice to Yahweh our God according to what he says to us." 28 And Pharaoh said, "I myself will release you, and you will sacrifice to Yahweh your God in the desert. Only surely you must not go far. Pray for me." 29 And Moses said, "Look, I am going out from you, and I will pray to Yahweh so that the flies depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people tomorrow. Only let not Pharaoh again deceive us by not releasing the people to sacrifice to Yahweh." 30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh and prayed to Yahweh. 31 And Yahweh did according to the word of Moses and removed the flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; not one was left. 32 And Pharaoh made his heart insensitive* also this time, and he did not release the people.

Exodus 9:1-12:32

1 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh and say to him, 'Thus says Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, "Release my people so that they may serve me." 2 But if you are refusing to release and you still are keeping hold of them, 3 look, the hand of Yahweh is about to be present with a very severe* plague on your livestock that are in the field, on the horses, on the donkeys, on the camels, on the cattle, and on the sheep and goats. 4 But Yahweh will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt, and not a thing will die from all that belongs to the Israelites.'"* 5 And Yahweh set an appointed time, saying, "Tomorrow Yahweh will do this thing in the land." 6 And Yahweh did this thing the next day; all the livestock of Egypt died, but from the livestock of the Israelites* not one died. 7 And Pharaoh sent to check, and it turned out* not even one from the livestock of Israel had died, but Pharaoh's heart was insensitive,* and he did not release the people. 8 And Yahweh said to Moses and to Aaron, "Take for yourselves full handfuls of soot from a smelting furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heavens before the eyes of Pharaoh. 9 And it will become fine dust over all the land of Egypt, and it will become on humans and on animals a skin sore sprouting blisters in all the land of Egypt." 10 And they took the soot of the smelting furnace, and they stood before Pharaoh, and Moses sprinkled it toward the heavens, and it became skin sores sprouting blisters on humans and on animals. 11 And the magicians were not able to stand before Moses because of the skin sores, for the skin sores were on the magicians and on all the Egyptians. 12 And Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken to Moses. 13 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Start early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh. Look, he is going out to the water, and you must say to him, 'Thus says Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, "Release my people so that they may serve me. 14 For at this time I am sending all of my plagues to you personally* and among your servants and among your people so that you will know that there is no one like me in all the earth. 15 For now I could have stretched out my hand, and I could have struck you and your people with the plague, and you would have perished from the earth. 16 But for the sake of this I have caused you to stand—for the sake of showing you my strength and in order to proclaim my name in all the earth. 17 Still you are behaving haughtily to my people by not releasing them. 18 Look, about this time tomorrow, I am going to cause very severe* hail to rain, the like of which has not been in Egypt from the day it was founded until now. 19 And now send word; bring into safety your livestock and all that belongs to you in the field. The hail will come down on every human and animal that is found in the field and not gathered into the house, and they will die." '" 20 Anyone from the servants of Pharaoh who feared the word of Yahweh caused his servants and livestock to flee to the houses. 21 But whoever did not give regard to* the word of Yahweh abandoned his servants and his livestock in the field. 22 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand to the heavens, and let there be hail in all the land of Egypt, on human and on animal and on all the vegetation of the field in the land of Egypt." 23 And Moses stretched out his staff to the heavens, and Yahweh gave thunder* and hail, and fire went to the earth, and Yahweh caused hail to rain on the land of Egypt. 24 And there was hail, and fire was flashing back and forth in the midst of the very severe hail, the like of which was not in all the land of Egypt since it had become a nation. 25 And the hail struck in all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, from human to animal, and the hail struck all the vegetation of the field and smashed every tree of the field. 26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the Israelites* were, there was no hail. 27 And Pharaoh sent and called Moses and Aaron and said to them, "I have sinned this time. Yahweh is the righteous one, and I and my people are the wicked ones. 28 Pray to Yahweh. The thunder of God and hail are enough,* and I will release you, and you will no longer have to stay."* 29 And Moses said to him, "At my leaving the city, I will spread out my hands to Yahweh. The thunder will stop, and the hail will be no more, so that you will know that the earth belongs to Yahweh. 30 But as for you and your servants, I know that you do not yet fear the presence of Yahweh God." 31 And the flax and the barley were struck, because the barley was in the ear and the flax was in bud. 32 But the wheat and the spelt were not struck, because they are late-ripening.

Exodus 10:1-12:32

1 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh, for I have made his heart insensitive* and the heart of his servants in order to put these signs of mine in his midst, 2 so that you will tell in the ears of your child and your grandchild* that I dealt harshly with the Egyptians and so that you will tell about my signs that I have done among them, and so you will know that I am Yahweh." 3 And Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and they said to him, "Thus says Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, 'Until when will you refuse to submit before me? Release my people so that they may serve me. 4 But if you are refusing to release my people, look, I am about to bring locusts into your territory tomorrow. 5 And they will cover the surface of the land, and no one will be able to see the land, and they will eat the remainder of what is left—what is left over for you from the hail—and they will eat every sprouting tree belonging to you from the field. 6 And your houses will be full, and the houses of all your servants and the houses of all Egypt, something that your fathers and your grandfathers* never saw from the day they were on the earth until this day.'" And he turned and went out from Pharaoh. 7 And the servants of Pharaoh said to him, "Until when will this be a snare for us? Release the men so that they may serve Yahweh their God. Do you not yet know that Egypt is destroyed?" 8 And Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh, and he said to them, "Serve Yahweh your God. Who are the ones going?* 9 And Moses said, "With our young and with our old we will go; with our sons and with our daughters, with our sheep and goats and with our cattle we will go because it is the feast of Yahweh for us." 10 And he said to them, "Let Yahweh be thus with you as soon as I release you and your dependents.* See that evil is before your faces. 11 No indeed;* just the men* go and serve Yahweh, since this is what you are seeking." And he drove them out from the presence of Pharaoh. 12 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt with the locusts so that they may come up over the land of Egypt, and let them eat all the vegetation of the land, all that the hail left behind." 13 And Moses stretched out his staff over the land of Egypt, and Yahweh drove an east wind into the land all that day and all night. The morning came, and the east wind had brought the locusts. 14 And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and they settled in all the territory of Egypt, very severe.* Before it there were not locusts like them, nor will there be after it. 15 And they covered the surface of all the land, and the land was dark with them, and they ate all the vegetation of the land and all the fruit of the trees that the hail had left, and no green was left in the trees nor in the vegetation of the field in all the land of Egypt. 16 And Pharaoh hurried to call Moses and Aaron, and he said, "I have sinned against Yahweh your God and against you. 17 And now forgive my sin surely this time, and pray to Yahweh your God so that he may only remove from me this death." 18 And he went out from Pharaoh, and he prayed to Yahweh. 19 And Yahweh turned a very strong west wind* and lifted up the locusts and thrust them into the Red Sea,* and not one locust remained in all the territory of Egypt. 20 And Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not release the Israelites.* 21 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand toward the heavens so that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt and so that a person can feel darkness." 22 And Moses stretched out his hand toward the heavens, and there was darkness of night in all the land of Egypt for three days. 23 No one could see his brother, and because of it no one could move from where they were* for three days, but there was light for the Israelites* in their dwellings. 24 And Pharaoh called Moses and said, "Go, serve Yahweh. Only your sheep and goats and your cattle must be left behind. Your dependents* may also go with you." 25 And Moses said, "Even if you yourself put into our hand sacrifices and burnt offerings and we offer them to Yahweh our God, 26 our livestock must also go with us. Not a hoof can be left because we must take from them to serve Yahweh our God. And we will not know with what we are to serve Yahweh until we come there." 27 And Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he was not willing to release them. 28 And Pharaoh said to him, "Go from me. Be careful* not to see my face again, because on the day of your seeing my face you will die." 29 And Moses said, "That is right.* I will not again see your face."*

Exodus 11:1-12:32

1 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Still one plague I will bring upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt; afterward he will release you from here. At the moment of his releasing, he will certainly drive you completely out from here. 2 Speak in the ears of the people, and let them ask, a man from his neighbor and a woman from her neighbor, for objects of silver and objects of gold." 3 And Yahweh gave the people favor in the eyes of Egypt. Also the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the eyes of the servants of Pharaoh and in the eyes of the people. 4 And Moses said, "Thus says Yahweh, 'About the middle of the night I will go out through the midst of Egypt, 5 and every firstborn in the land of Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the firstborn of the slave woman who is behind the pair of millstones and every firstborn animal.* 6 And there will be a great cry of distress in all the land of Egypt, the like of which has not been nor will be again.* 7 But against all the Israelites,* from a man to an animal, a dog will not even bark,* so that you will know that Yahweh makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel.' 8 And all of these your servants will come down to me and bow to me, saying, 'Go out, you and all the people who are at your feet.' And afterward I will go out." And he went out from Pharaoh in great anger.* 9 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Pharaoh will not listen to you, so that my wonders may multiply* in the land of Egypt." 10 And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh, and Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not release the Israelites* from his land.

Exodus 12:1-32

1 And Yahweh said to Moses and to Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2 "This month will be the beginning of months; it will be for you the first of the months of the year. 3 Speak to all the community of Israel, saying, 'On the tenth of this month, they will each take for themselves a lamb for the family,* a lamb for the household. 4 And if the household is too small for a lamb, he and the neighbor nearest to his house will take one according to the number of persons;* you will count out portions of the lamb according to how much each one can eat.* 5 The lamb for you must be a male, without defect, in its first year; you will take it from the sheep or from the goats. 6 "You will keep it* until the fourteenth day of this month, and all the assembly of the community of Israel will slaughter it at twilight.* 7 And they will take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel on the houses in which they eat it. 8 And they will eat the meat on this night; they will eat it fire-roasted and with unleavened bread on bitter herbs.* 9 You must not eat any of it raw or boiled, boiled in the water, but rather roasted with fire, its head with its legs and with its inner parts. 10 And you must not leave any of it until morning; anything left from it until morning you must burn in the fire. 11 And this is how you will eat it—with your waists fastened, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand, and you will eat it in haste. It is Yahweh's Passover. 12 "And I will go through the land of Egypt during this night, and I will strike all of the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from human to animal, and I will do punishments among all of the gods of Egypt. I am Yahweh. 13 And the blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and I will see the blood, and I will pass over you, and there will not be a destructive plague among you when I strike the land of Egypt. 14 "And this day will become a memorial for you, and you will celebrate it as a religious feast for Yahweh throughout your generations; you will celebrate it as a lasting statute. 15 You will eat unleavened bread for seven days. Surely on the first day you shall remove yeast from your houses, because anyone who eats food with yeast from the first day until the seventh day—that person will be cut off from Israel. 16 It will be for you on the first day a holy assembly* and on the seventh day a holy assembly;* no work will be done on them; only what is eaten by every person, it alone will be prepared for you. 17 "And you will keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread, because on this very day I brought out your divisions from the land of Egypt, and you will keep this day for your generations as a lasting statute. 18 On the first day, on the fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, you will eat unleavened bread until the evening of the twenty-first day of the month. 19 For seven days yeast must not be found in your houses, because anyone eating food with yeast* will be cut off from the community of Israel—whether an alien or a native of the land. 20 You will eat no food with yeast; in all of your dwellings you will eat unleavened bread." 21 And Moses called all the elders of Israel, and he said to them, "Select and take for yourselves sheep for your clans and slaughter the Passover sacrifice. 22 And take a bunch of hyssop and dip it into the blood that is in the basin and apply some of the blood that is in the basin to the lintel and the two doorposts. And you will not go out, anyone from the doorway of his house, until morning. 23 And Yahweh will go through to strike Egypt, and he will see the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, and Yahweh will pass over the doorway and will not allow the destroyer to come to your houses to strike you. 24 "And you will keep this event as a rule for you and for your children forever.* 25 And* when you come into the land that Yahweh will give to you, as he said, you will keep this religious custom.* 26 And* when your children say to you, 'What is this religious custom* for you?'* 27 you will say, 'It is a Passover sacrifice for Yahweh, who passed over the houses of the Israelites* in Egypt when he struck Egypt; and he delivered our houses.'" And the people knelt down and they worshiped. 28 And the Israelites* went, and they did as Yahweh had commanded Moses and Aaron; so they did. 29 And* in the middle of the night, Yahweh struck all of the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh sitting on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the prison house and every firstborn of an animal. 30 And Pharaoh got up at night, he and all his servants and all Egypt, and a great cry of distress was in Egypt because there was not a house where there was no one dead. 31 And he called Moses and Aaron at night, and he said, "Get up, go out from the midst of my people, both you as well as the Israelites,* and go, serve Yahweh, as you have said. 32 Take both your sheep and goats as well as your cattle, and go, and bless also me."

Exodus 14:1-31

1 And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "Speak to the Israelites* so that they turn and encamp before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea;* before Baal Zephon, which is opposite it, you will camp by the sea. 3 And Pharaoh will say of the Israelites,* 'They are wandering around in the land. The desert has closed in on them.' 4 And I will harden the heart of Pharaoh, and he will chase after them, and I will be glorified through Pharaoh and through all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am Yahweh." And they did so. 5 And it was told to the king of Egypt that the people fled, and the heart of Pharaoh was changed and that of his servants toward the people, and they said, "What is this we have done, that we have released Israel from serving us!" 6 And he harnessed his chariot and took with him his people. 7 And he took six hundred select chariots and all the chariots of Egypt and officers over all of them. 8 And Yahweh hardened the heart of Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and he chased after the Israelites.* (Now the Israelites* were going out boldly.*) 9 And the Egyptians chased after them, and they overtook them encamped at the sea—all the horses of the chariots of Pharaoh and his charioteers and his army—at Pi-hahiroth before Baal Zephon. 10 And Pharaoh approached, and the Israelites* lifted their eyes, and there were the Egyptians traveling after them! And they were very afraid, and the Israelites* cried out to Yahweh. 11 And they said to Moses, "Because there are no graves in Egypt? Is that why you have taken us to die in the desert? What is this you have done to us by bringing us out from Egypt! 12 Isn't this the word we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, 'Leave us alone so that we can serve Egypt!' because serving Egypt is better for us than our dying in the desert." 13 And Moses said to the people, "You must not be afraid. Stand still and see the salvation of Yahweh, which he will accomplish for you today, because the Egyptians whom you see today you will see never again. 14 Yahweh will fight for you, and you must be quiet." 15 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Why do you cry out to me? Speak to the Israelites* so that they set out.* 16 And you, lift up your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it so that the Israelites* can go in the middle of the sea on the dry land. 17 And as for me, look, I am about to harden the heart of the Egyptians so that they come after them, and I will display my glory through Pharaoh and through all of his army, through his chariots and through his charioteers. 18 And the Egyptians will know that I am Yahweh when I display my glory through Pharaoh, through his chariots, and through his charioteers." 19 And the angel of God who was going before the camp of Israel set out and went behind them. And the column of cloud set out ahead of them, and it stood still behind them, 20 so that it came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel. And it was a dark cloud,* but it gave light to the night,* so that neither approached the other* all night. 21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and Yahweh moved the sea* with a strong east wind all night, and he made the sea become dry ground, and the waters were divided. 22 And the Israelites* entered the middle of the sea on the dry land. The waters were a wall for them on their right and on their left. 23 And the Egyptians gave chase* and entered after them—all the horses of Pharaoh, his chariots, and his charioteers—into the middle of the sea. 24 And during the morning watch, Yahweh looked down to the Egyptian camp from in the column of fire and cloud, and he threw the Egyptian camp into a panic. 25 And he removed* the wheels of their chariots so that they drove them with difficulty, and the Egyptians said, "We must flee away* from Israel because Yahweh is fighting for them against Egypt." 26 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea, and let the waters return over the Egyptians, over their chariots, and over their charioteers." 27 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the sea returned at daybreak* to its normal level, and the Egyptians were fleeing because of it,* and Yahweh swept the Egyptians into the middle of the sea. 28 And the waters returned and covered the chariots and the charioteers—all the army of Pharaoh coming after them into the sea. Not even* one survived among them. 29 But the Israelites* walked on the dry land in the middle of the sea. The waters were a wall for them on their right and on their left. 30 And Yahweh saved Israel on that day from the hand* of Egypt, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the shore of the sea. 31 And Israel saw the great hand* that Yahweh displayed against Egypt, and the people feared Yahweh, and they believed in Yahweh and in Moses his servant.

Exodus 18:11

11 Now I know that Yahweh is greater than all the gods, even in the matter where they the Egyptians dealt arrogantly against the Israelites."*

Deuteronomy 4:34

34 Or has a god ever attempted to go to take for himself* a nation from the midst of a nation, using trials and signs and wonders and war, with an outstretched arm and with great and awesome deeds, like all that Yahweh your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?

Deuteronomy 11:3-4

3 and his signs and his deeds that he did in the midst of Egypt to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and to all of his land, 4 and what he did to the army of Egypt and to their horses and to their chariots, and how he made the water of the Red Sea* flow over them, when they pursued after them,* and so Yahweh has destroyed them, as is the case today,*

Joshua 2:10-11

10 For we have heard how Yahweh dried up the waters of the Red Sea* before you when you went out from Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites that were beyond the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. 11 We heard this, and our hearts* melted, and no courage was left in anyone* because of your presence. For Yahweh your God is God in the heavens above and on the earth below.

Job 40:11-12

11 Pour out the overflowing of your anger, and look at all the proud, and humble them. 12 Look at all the proud, humble them, and tread down the wicked where they stand.*

Psalms 78:12-13

12 In front of their ancestors* he did a wonder, in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan. 13 He split the sea and caused them to go over, and he caused waters to stand like a heap.

Psalms 78:43-53

43 how he performed* his signs in Egypt and his wonders in the region of Zoan, 44 when he turned their rivers* to blood so they could not drink from their streams. 45 He sent among them flies that devoured them and frogs that destroyed them. 46 And he gave their crop to the locusts and their labor to the locust.* 47 He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycamore trees with sleet.* 48 He also handed their cattle over to the hail and their livestock to the lightning bolts. 49 He sent against them his fierce anger, rage and indignation and trouble, a band of destroying* angels. 50 He cleared a path for his anger. He did not spare them* from death but handed their life over to the plague. 51 And he struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, the first of their virility in the tents of Ham. 52 Then he led out his people like sheep and guided them like a herd in the wilderness. 53 And he led them safely and they were not afraid, but the sea covered their enemies.

Psalms 83:18

18 that they may know that you, whose name is Yahweh, you alone, are the Most High over the whole earth.

Psalms 105:27-37

27 They set before them the words concerning his signs and portents in the land of Ham. 28 He sent darkness and made it dark, and they did not rebel against his words. 29 He turned their waters into blood and it killed their fish. 30 Their land swarmed with frogs, even in the chambers of their kings. 31 He spoke, and there came flies and gnats throughout all their territory.* 32 He gave hail for their rains and the fire of lightning in their land. 33 And he struck their vines and fig trees, and shattered the trees of their territory. 34 He spoke and there came locusts and young locusts without number. 35 And they ate up all the vegetation in their land, and they ate up the fruit of their ground. 36 And he struck down all the firstborn in their land, the first of all their virility. 37 Then he brought them out with silver and gold, and there was none among his tribes who stumbled.

Psalms 106:7-11

7 Our ancestors* in Egypt did not understand your wonderful works. They did not remember your many acts of loyal love, and so they rebelled by the sea at the Red Sea.* 8 Yet he saved them for the sake of his name, to make known his might. 9 So he rebuked the Red Sea,* and it dried up, and he led them through the deep as through a desert. 10 Thus he saved them from the hand of the hater and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 11 But waters covered their adversaries; not one of them survived.

Psalms 135:8-9

8 Who struck the firstborn of Egypt, both of humans* and animals.* 9 He sent signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt, against Pharaoh and all his servants.

Psalms 136:10-15

10 To him who struck Egypt through their firstborn, for his loyal love endures forever. 11 And he brought Israel out from among them, for his loyal love endures forever. 12 With a strong hand and an outstretched arm, for his loyal love endures forever. 13 To him who divided the Red Sea* in two, for his loyal love endures forever. 14 And he let Israel cross over through the midst of it, for his loyal love endures forever. 15 But he tossed Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea,* for his loyal love endures forever.

Exodus 14:21-22

21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and Yahweh moved the sea* with a strong east wind all night, and he made the sea become dry ground, and the waters were divided. 22 And the Israelites* entered the middle of the sea on the dry land. The waters were a wall for them on their right and on their left.

Exodus 14:27-28

27 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the sea returned at daybreak* to its normal level, and the Egyptians were fleeing because of it,* and Yahweh swept the Egyptians into the middle of the sea. 28 And the waters returned and covered the chariots and the charioteers—all the army of Pharaoh coming after them into the sea. Not even* one survived among them.

Exodus 15:1-21

1 Then Moses and the Israelites* sang this song to Yahweh, and they said,*
"Let me sing to Yahweh because he is highly exalted; the horse and its rider he hurled into the sea. 2 Yah* is my strength and song, and he has become my salvation;* this is my God, and I will praise him—the God of my father—and I will exalt him. 3 Yahweh is a man of war; Yahweh is his name. 4 The chariots of Pharaoh and his army he cast into the sea, and his choice adjutants were sunk in the Red Sea.* 5 The deep waters covered them; they went down into the depths like a stone. 6 Yahweh, your right hand is glorious in power; Yahweh, your right hand destroyed the enemy. 7 And in the greatness of your majesty you overthrew those standing up to you; you released your fierce anger, and it consumed them like stubble. 8 And by the breath of your nostrils waters were piled up; waves stood like a heap; deep waters in the middle of the sea congealed. 9 The enemy said, 'I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide plunder, my desire will be full of them, I will draw my sword, my hand will destroy them.' 10 You blew with your breath; the sea covered them; they dropped like lead in the mighty waters. 11 Who is like you among the gods, Yahweh? Who is like you—glorious in holiness, awesome in praiseworthy actions, doing wonders?* 12 You stretched out your right hand; the earth swallowed them. 13 In your loyal love you led the people whom you redeemed; in your strength you guided them to the abode of your holiness.* 14 Peoples heard; they trembled; anguish seized the inhabitants of Philistia. 15 Then the chiefs of Edom were horrified; great distress seized the leaders of Moab; all of the inhabitants of Canaan melted away. 16 Terror and dread fell on them; at the greatness of your arm they became silent like the stone, until your people passed by, Yahweh, until the people whom you bought passed by. 17 You brought them and planted them on the mountain of your inheritance, a place you made for yourself to inhabit, Yahweh, a sanctuary, Lord, that your hands established. 18 Yahweh will reign as king forever and ever." 19 When the horses* of Pharaoh came into the sea with his chariots* and with his charioteers, Yahweh brought back upon them the waters of the sea, and the Israelites* traveled on dry ground through the middle of the sea. 20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took her* tambourine in her hand, and all of the women went out after her with tambourines and with dances. 21 And Miriam answered,* "Sing to Yahweh because he is highly exalted; the horse and its rider he hurled into the sea."

They did not stumble like a horse in the desert;

Exodus 13:21-22

21 And Yahweh was going before them by day in a column of cloud to lead them on the way and by night in a column of fire to give light to them to go by day and night. 22 The column of cloud by day and the column of fire by night did not depart from before the people.

16 And* on the third day, when it was morning, there was thunder and lightning, and a heavy cloud over the mountain and a very loud ram's horn sound, and all the people who were in the camp trembled. 17 And Moses brought the people out from the camp to meet God, and they took their stand at the foot of the mountain. 18 And Mount Sinai was all wrapped in smoke because Yahweh went down on it in the fire, and its smoke went up like the smoke of a smelting furnace, and the whole mountain trembled greatly. 19 And the sound of the ram's horn became louder and louder,* and Moses would speak, and God would answer him with a voice. 20 And Yahweh went down on Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain, and Yahweh called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.

10 Remember the day that you stood before* Yahweh your God at Horeb when Yahweh said to me,* 'Summon for me the people so that I can tell them my words, that they may learn to fear me all of the days they are alive on the earth and so that they may teach their children.' 11 And so you came near, and you stood under the mountain, and the mountain was burning with fire up to the heart of the heaven, dark with a very thick cloud.* 12 And Yahweh spoke to you from the midst of the fire; you heard* a sound of words, but you did not see* a form—only a voice. 13 And he declared to you his covenant, the Ten Commandments,* which he charged you to observe,* and he wrote them on the two tablets of stone.

22 "These words Yahweh spoke to your whole assembly at the mountain from the midst of the fire and the very thick cloud with a loud voice, and he did not add anything,* and then he wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me. 23 And then* when you heard* the voice from the midst of the darkness, and as the mountain was burning with fire, and and all the heads of your tribes and your elders approached me, 24 you said, 'Look, Yahweh our God has shown us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice from the midst of the fire; this day we have seen* that God can speak with a human being, yet he remains alive.* 25 And so then why shall we die, for this great fire will consume us if we continue* to hear the voice of Yahweh our God any longer, and so we shall die? 26 For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire as we have heard it and remained alive?*

Deuteronomy 10:12-13

12 And now, Israel, what is Yahweh your God asking* from you, except* to revere Yahweh your God, to go* in all his ways and to love him and to serve Yahweh your God with all your heart and with all your soul,* 13 to keep the commandments of Yahweh and his statutes that I am commanding you today for your own good.*

7 The law of Yahweh is perfect, reviving life.* The testimony of Yahweh is firm, making wise the simple. 8 The precepts of Yahweh are right, making the heart rejoice. The command of Yahweh is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of Yahweh is pure, enduring forever.

Ezekiel 20:11-13

11 and I gave my statutes to them, and my regulations I made known to them, which, if a person does them, then he will live by them. 12 And also my Sabbaths I gave to them to be a sign between me and between them so they would know* that I, Yahweh, am the one sanctifying them. 13 "But* in the desert the house of Israel rebelled against me; they did not walk in my statutes,* and they rejected my regulations, which, if a person does them, he will live by them, and they greatly profaned my Sabbaths, and I decided to pour out my rage on them in the desert to destroy them,

Habakkuk 3:3

3 God came from Teman; the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah His splendor covers the heavens, and his praise fills the earth.

Romans 7:12-14

12 So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good. 13 Therefore, did that which is good become death to me? May it never be! Rather it was sin, in order that it might be recognized as sin, producing death through what is good for me, in order that sin might become sinful to an extraordinary degree through the commandment. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am fleshly, sold into slavery to sin*.

Romans 7:16

16 But if what I do not want to do, this I do, I agree with the law that it is good.

Hebrews 12:18-26

18 For you have not come to something that can be touched, and to a burning fire, and to darkness, and to gloom, and to a whirlwind, 19 and to the noise of a trumpet, and to the sound of words which those who heard begged that not another word be spoken to them. 20 For they could not endure what was commanded: "If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned."* 21 And the spectacle was so terrifying that Moses said, "I am terrified and trembling."* 22 But you have come to Mount Zion, and to the city of the living God, to the heavenly Jerusalem, and to tens of thousands of angels, to the festal gathering 23 and assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of righteous people made perfect, 24 and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood* that speaks better than Abel's does. 25 Watch out that you do not refuse the one who is speaking! For if those did not escape when they* refused the one who warned them on earth, much less will we escape,* if we* reject the one who warns from heaven, 26 whose voice shook the earth at that time, but now he has promised, saying,
"Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also heaven."*

8 "Remember the day of the Sabbath, to consecrate it. 9 Six days you will work, and you will do all your work. 10 But the seventh day is a Sabbath for Yahweh your God; you will not do any work—you or your son or your daughter, your male slave or your female slave, or your animal, or your alien who is in your gates— 11 because in six days Yahweh made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and on the seventh day he rested. Therefore Yahweh blessed the seventh day and consecrated it.

Exodus 21:1-23

1 "And these are the regulations that you will set before them. 2 'If you buy a Hebrew slave, he will serve six years, and in the seventh he will go out as free for nothing.* 3 If he comes in single, he will go out single. If he is the husband of a wife, his wife will go out with him. 4 If his master gives him a wife and she bears for him sons or daughters, the wife and her children will belong to her master, and the slave will go out single. 5 But if the slave explicitly says, "I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free," 6 his master will present him to God* and bring him to the door or to the doorpost, and his master will pierce his ear with an awl, and he will serve him forever. 7 " 'And if a man sells his daughter as a slave woman, she will not go out as male slaves go out. 8 If she does not please her master* who selected her, he will allow her to be redeemed; he has no authority to sell her to foreign people, since he has dealt treacherously with her. 9 And if he selects her for his son, he shall do for her according to the regulations for daughters. 10 If he takes for himself another, he will not reduce her food, her clothing, or her right of cohabitation. 11 And if he does not do for her these three, she shall go out for nothing; there will not be silver* paid for her. 12 " 'Whoever strikes someone* and he dies will surely be put to death. 13 But if he did not lie in wait and it was an accident,* I will appoint for you a place to which he may flee. 14 But if a man schemes against his neighbor to kill him by treachery,* you will take him from my altar to die. 15 And whoever strikes* his father or his mother will surely be put to death. 16 " 'And whoever kidnaps someone* and sells him, or he is found in his possession,* he will surely be put to death. 17 " 'And one who curses his father or his mother will surely be put to death. 18 " 'And if men quarrel and a man strikes his neighbor with a stone or with a fist and he does not die, but he is confined to bed,* 19 if he stands and walks about in the outside on his staff, the striker will be unpunished; he will only pay for his inactivity* toward his full recovery."* 20 And if a man strikes his male slave or his female slave with the rod and he dies under his hand, he will surely be avenged. 21 Yet if he survives a day or two days, he will not be avenged, because he is his money.* 22 " 'And if men fight and they injure a pregnant woman, and her children go out and there is not serious injury, he will surely be fined as the woman's husband demands concerning him and as the judges determine.* 23 And if there is serious injury, you will give life in place of life,

14 And the layer of dew came up, and there* on the face of the desert was a fine granular substance, fine like frost on the ground. 15 And the Israelites* saw, and they said to each other,* "What is this?" because they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, "That is the bread that Yahweh has given to you as food.

And abundant water went out, and the community and their livestock drank. 12 But Yahweh said to Moses and Aaron, "Because you have not trusted in me, to regard me as holy in the sight of* the Israelites,* you will not bring this assembly into the land that I have given to them." 13 Those were the waters of Meribah, where the Israelites* quarreled with Yahweh, and he showed himself holy among them.

The one who comes to me will never be hungry, and the one who believes in me will never be thirsty again.

Our brothers have made our hearts melt,* saying,* "The people are greater* and taller than we are,* and there are great fortified cities reaching up to heaven, and we saw the sons of the Anakites living there." ' 29 "And so I said to you, 'Do not be terrified, and do not fear them. 30 Yahweh your God, who is going before you,* will himself* fight for you, just as* he did for you in Egypt before your eyes, 31 and just as he did in the wilderness* when* you saw that* Yahweh your God carried you, just as someone* carries his son, all along the way that you traveled until you reached* this place.' 32 But through all of this you did not trust in Yahweh your God, 33 who goes* before you* on your* way, seeking a place for your encampment, in fire at night and in a cloud by day, to show you the way that you should go.*

Nehemiah 9:29

Psalms 78:8-72

8 and not be like their ancestors,* a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that did not make ready its heart, whose spirit was not faithful to God. 9 The sons of Ephraim, armed with archers,* turned back on the day of battle. 10 They did not keep the covenant of God and refused to go in his law.* 11 They also forgot his deeds, and his wonders that he had shown them. 12 In front of their ancestors* he did a wonder, in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan. 13 He split the sea and caused them to go over, and he caused waters to stand like a heap. 14 And he led them with the cloud by day, and all night with a fiery light. 15 He caused rocks to split in the wilderness and provided drink abundantly as from the depths. 16 And he brought streams out of the rock and caused water to flow down like rivers. 17 But they sinned still further against him by rebelling against the Most High in the desert. 18 And they tested God in their heart by asking food for their craving.* 19 And they spoke against God. They said, "Is God able to prepare a table in the wilderness? 20 Yes, he struck the rock and water flowed and streams gushed out, but can he also give food or provide meat for his people?" 21 Therefore Yahweh heard and he was very angry, and a fire was kindled against Jacob, and his anger also rose up against Israel, 22 because they did not believe God, and they did not trust his salvation. 23 Nevertheless, he commanded the skies above and opened the doors of heaven, 24 and rained down on them manna to eat and gave them the grain of heaven. 25 Humankind ate the bread of angels.* He sent them food enough to be satisfied. 26 He caused the east wind to blow in the heavens and drove along the south wind by his strength. 27 Then he rained meat on them like dust, even winged birds* like the sand of the seas. 28 He caused them to fall in the midst of his camp, all around his dwellings. 29 So they ate and were well filled, and he brought about what they craved. 30 They had not yet turned aside from their craving, while their food was still in their mouth, 31 the anger of God rose against them, and he killed some of the stoutest of them, even the young men of Israel he caused to bow down in death. 32 In spite of all this they sinned further and did not believe his wonders. 33 And he consumed their days with futility * their years with terror.* 34 When he killed some of them, then they sought him, and repented and earnestly sought God. 35 And they remembered that God was their rock, and God Most High their redeemer. 36 But they enticed him with their mouth and lied to him with their tongue. 37 For their heart was not steadfast with him, nor were they faithful to his covenant. 38 But he was compassionate; he pardoned* their guilt and did not destroy them. And many times he turned back his anger and did not stir up all his wrath, 39 for he remembered that they were flesh, a passing wind that does not return. 40 How often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and vexed him in the wasteland! 41 So they again tested God and distressed* the Holy One of Israel. 42 And they did not remember his power* when* he redeemed them from the enemy, 43 how he performed* his signs in Egypt and his wonders in the region of Zoan, 44 when he turned their rivers* to blood so they could not drink from their streams. 45 He sent among them flies that devoured them and frogs that destroyed them. 46 And he gave their crop to the locusts and their labor to the locust.* 47 He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycamore trees with sleet.* 48 He also handed their cattle over to the hail and their livestock to the lightning bolts. 49 He sent against them his fierce anger, rage and indignation and trouble, a band of destroying* angels. 50 He cleared a path for his anger. He did not spare them* from death but handed their life over to the plague. 51 And he struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, the first of their virility in the tents of Ham. 52 Then he led out his people like sheep and guided them like a herd in the wilderness. 53 And he led them safely and they were not afraid, but the sea covered their enemies. 54 So he brought them to his holy territory,* this mountain his right hand acquired.* 55 And he drove out nations before them and allocated them for an inheritance by boundary line, and settled the tribes of Israel in their tents. 56 But they tested and rebelled against God Most High and did not keep his statutes. 57 And they turned and were treacherous like their ancestors.* They twisted like a crooked* bow. 58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and made him jealous with their images. 59 God heard and he was very angry and rejected Israel utterly. 60 So he abandoned the dwelling place at Shiloh, the tent he had placed among humankind. 61 And he gave his strength into captivity and his splendor into the hand of the enemy. 62 He also handed his people over to the sword, and he was very angry with his inheritance. 63 Fire devoured his young men, and his young women* were not praised. 64 His priests fell by the sword, and his widows did not weep. 65 Then the Lord awoke like one who had been asleep, awoke like a warrior who had been drunk with wine.* 66 And he beat back his enemies; he gave them over to perpetual scorn. 67 And he rejected the tent of Joseph, and did not chose the tribe of Ephraim, 68 but chose the tribe of Judah, Mount Zion* that he loved. 69 And he built his sanctuary like the heights, like the earth that he established forever. 70 And he chose David his servant and took him from the sheepfolds. 71 He brought him from following nursing ewes to shepherd Jacob, his people, and Israel, his inheritance. 72 And he shepherded them according to the integrity of his heart, and led them by the skillfulness of his hands.

8 Hear, O my people, and I will admonish you; O Israel, if you would but listen to me.

Psalms 81:11-14

11 But my people did not listen to my voice, and Israel did not yield to me. 12 So I let them* go in the stubbornness of their heart; they walked in their counsels. 13 Oh that my people would listen to me; that Israel would walk in my ways. 14 I would subdue their enemies quickly, and turn my hand against their adversaries.

Psalms 95:8-10

8 "Do not harden your heart as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness, 9 when your ancestors* tried me. They put me to the test, even though they had seen my work. 10 For forty years I loathed that generation, and said, 'They are a people whose heart wanders. And my ways they do not know.'

Numbers 14:3-4

Psalms 103:8-18

8 Yahweh is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger* and abundant in loyal love. 9 He does not dispute continually, nor keep his anger forever. 10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor repaid us according to our iniquities. 11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, so his loyal love prevails over those who fear him. 12 As far as east is from west, so he has removed far from us the guilt of our transgressions. 13 As a father pities* his children, so Yahweh pities* those who fear him. 14 For he knows our frame.* He remembers that we are dust. 15 As for man, his days are like the grass. As the flower of the field, so he blossoms. 16 When the wind passes over it, it is no more, and its place knows it no longer. 17 But the loyal love of Yahweh is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to their children's children, 18 to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his precepts.

4 And he took from their hand, and he shaped it with a tool, and he made it a cast-image bull calf, and they said, "These are your gods, Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt." 5 And Aaron saw, and he built an altar before it, and Aaron called, and he said, "A feast for Yahweh tomorrow." 6 And they started early the next day, and they offered burnt offerings, and they presented fellowship offerings, and the people sat to eat and drink, and they rose up to revel. 7 And Yahweh spoke to Moses, "Go, go down because your people behave corruptly, whom you brought up from the land of Egypt. 8 They have turned aside quickly from the way that I commanded them; they have made for themselves a cast-image bull calf, and they bowed to it, and they sacrificed to it, and they said, 'These are your gods, Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt.'"

Exodus 32:31-32

31 And Moses returned to Yahweh, and he said, "Alas, this people has sinned a great sin and made for themselves gods of gold. 32 And now if you will forgive their sin—and if not, please blot me from your scroll that you have written."

Deuteronomy 9:12-16

12 And Yahweh said to me, 'Come now, go down quickly from this mountain because your people behave corruptly whom you brought out from Egypt, for they turned quickly from the way that I commanded them to follow; they have made for themselves a cast image.' 13 And Yahweh spoke to me, saying,* 'I have seen this people, and look! They are a stubborn people.* 14 Leave me alone, and let me destroy them, and let me blot out their name from under heaven, and let me make you into a nation mightier and more numerous than they!' 15 "And I turned, and I went down the mountain, as the mountain was burning with fire, and the two tablets of the covenant were in my two hands. 16 And I looked,* and indeed you had sinned against Yahweh your God; you had made for yourselves an image of a calf of cast metal; * you had turned quickly from the way that Yahweh had commanded for you.

Psalms 106:19-23

19 They made a calf at Horeb and bowed down to a cast image. 20 And so they exchanged their glory for an image of an ox that eats grass. 21 They forgot God their Savior, who had done great things in Egypt, 22 wonders in the land of Ham, awesome deeds by the Red Sea.* 23 So he said he would exterminate them, had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him, to reverse his wrath from destroying them.

Ezekiel 20:7-44

7 Then I said to them, 'Let each one throw away the detestable things of his eyes, and you must not make yourselves unclean with the idols of Egypt! I am Yahweh your God.' 8 But they rebelled against me, and they were not willing to listen to me; each one did not throw away* the detestable things of their eyes; and they did not abandon* the idols of Egypt, and I decided to pour out my rage on them, to fully vent my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt. 9 "But* I acted for the sake of my name to keep it from being profaned* before the eyes of the nations among whom they lived,* where I made known to them before their eyes, to bring them out from the land of Egypt. 10 And I brought them out from the land of Egypt, and I brought them to the desert, 11 and I gave my statutes to them, and my regulations I made known to them, which, if a person does them, then he will live by them. 12 And also my Sabbaths I gave to them to be a sign between me and between them so they would know* that I, Yahweh, am the one sanctifying them. 13 "But* in the desert the house of Israel rebelled against me; they did not walk in my statutes,* and they rejected my regulations, which, if a person does them, he will live by them, and they greatly profaned my Sabbaths, and I decided to pour out my rage on them in the desert to destroy them, 14 and I acted for the sake of my name, that it not be profaned before the eyes of the nations before whom I brought them out.* 15 And also I myself swore* to them in the desert not to bring them into the land that I had given to them, flowing with milk and honey—it is the most beautiful of all of the lands— 16 because they despised my judgments, and they did not walk in my statutes,* and my Sabbaths they profaned, for their heart was going after their idols. 17 But my eye took pity on them by not destroying them, and I did not completely destroy them* in the desert. 18 "And I said to their children in the desert, 'You must not go in the statutes of your parents;* you must not keep their regulations, and you must not make yourself unclean with their idols. 19 I, Yahweh, am your God, so go in my statutes and keep my regulations and do them. 20 And treat my Sabbaths as holy, and they will be a sign between me and between you that you may know* that I, Yahweh, am your God.' 21 But the children rebelled against me; they did not walk in my statutes,* and they did not observe my regulations,* which if a person does them, then he will live by them. My Sabbaths they desecrated, and I decided to pour out my rage on them, to finish my anger against them in the desert. 22 But I withheld my hand, and I acted for the sake of my name not to be profaned before the eyes of the nations before whom I had brought them out before their eyes. 23 What is more, I swore* to them in the desert to scatter them among the nations and to disperse them in the lands, 24 because they did not do my regulations, and my statutes they despised, and my Sabbaths they profaned, and their eyes were after the idols of their ancestors.* 25 And in turn I gave to them rules that were not good and regulations by which they will not live.* 26 And I defiled them through their gifts in sacrificing all of the first offspring of the womb, in order that* I will cause them to be stunned, so that they will know that I am Yahweh. 27 "Therefore speak to the house of Israel, son of man,* and you must say to them, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Again in this your ancestors blasphemed me at* their display of infidelity toward me." '* 28 And I brought them to the land that I swore* to give* to them, and they saw every high hill and every leafy tree, and they offered their sacrifices, and they presented there the provocation of their offering, and they gave there their fragrant incense offering, and they poured out their libations there. 29 And I said to them, 'What is the high place* to which you are going?' And it is called* Bamah until this day. 30 Therefore thus say to the house of Israel, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "In the way of your ancestors* will you defile yourself, and after their vile idols will you prostitute yourselves? 31 And when you lift up your gifts, sacrificing your children* through the fire, you are defiling yourself through all of your idols until today,* and will I let myself* be consulted by you, house of Israel?" ' As I live,"* declares* the Lord Yahweh, "I will not let myself* be consulted by you! 32 And what you are planning,* surely it will not be—that you are saying, 'Let us be like the nations, like the clans* of the lands, serving wood and stone!'* 33 "As I live,"* declares* the Lord Yahweh, "surely* with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm and with rage pouring forth* I will reign as king over you! 34 And I will bring you from the peoples, and I will gather you from the countries to which you were scattered with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm and with rage poured out. 35 Then I will bring you to the desert of the peoples, and I will execute justice on you there face to face. 36 Just as* I executed justice on your ancestors* in the desert of the land of Egypt, likewise I will execute justice on you!" declares* the Lord Yahweh. 37 "And I will make you pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant. 38 And I will purge the rebels from among you and the ones transgressing against me; I will bring them out from the land where they are living as aliens,* but into the land of Israel they will not come, and then you will know that I am Yahweh. 39 And you, house of Israel, thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Let each one go serve his idols now and after, if you are not listening to me, but my holy name* you will not profane any longer with your gifts and with your idols. 40 "For on my holy mountain,* on the mountain of the height of Israel," declares* the Lord Yahweh, "there all of the house of Israel will serve me, all of them,* in the land. I will take pleasure in them, and there I will accept your contributions and the best of your portions with all of your holy objects. 41 I will accept you as a fragrant incense offering* when I bring you out from the peoples and I gather you from the lands to which you were scattered, and I will show myself holy among you before the eyes of the nations. 42 And you will know that I am Yahweh when I bring you to the land of Israel, to the land that I swore* to give to your ancestors. 43 And you will remember there your ways, and all of your deeds by which you were made unclean,* and you will feel a loathing for yourself* for all of your evils that you have done. 44 And you will know that I am Yahweh when I deal with you* for the sake of my name and not according to your evil ways* or according to* your corrupted deeds, house of Israel," declares* the Lord Yahweh.

Exodus 40:38

38 For the cloud of Yahweh was on the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night before the eyes of all the house of Israel throughout all their journeys.

Numbers 9:15-22

15 And on a day setting up the tabernacle, the cloud covered the tent of the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony; in the evening it was on the tabernacle as an appearance of fire until morning. 16 So it was* continually; the cloud would cover it and the appearance of fire by night. 17 Whenever the cloud lifted up from on the tent, after that the Israelites* would set out, and in the place where the cloud dwelled, there the Israelites* camped. 18 On the command of Yahweh* the Israelites* would set out, and on the command of Yahweh* they encamped; all the days that the cloud dwelled on the tabernacle they encamped. 19 And when the cloud prolonged on the tabernacle many days the Israelites* kept the kept requirement of Yahweh and did not set out. 20 When the cloud remained* a number of days on the tabernacle, on the command of Yahweh* they encamped; and on the command of Yahweh* they set out. 21 When the cloud remained* from evening until morning, and the cloud lifted up in the morning, they would set out, or if it remained in the daytime and at night, when the cloud lifted up they set out. 22 When it was two days, a month, or a year* that the cloud prolonged to dwell on the tabernacle, the Israelites* encamped, and they did not set out; when it lifted up they set out.

Numbers 14:14

14 and they will tell it* to the inhabitants of this land. They heard that you, Yahweh, are in the midst of this people, that you are seen eye to eye, and your cloud is standing over them, and in a column of cloud you go before them by day and in a column of fire at night.

Would that he* give all Yahweh's people prophets, that Yahweh put his spirit on them!"

21 Israel sent messengers to Sihon, the king of the Amorites,* saying, 22 "Let us go through your land; we will not turn aside into a field or vineyard; we will not drink well water along the way of the king until we have gone through your territory." 23 But Sihon did not allow Israel to go through his territory. Sihon gathered all his people and went out to meet Israel; he came to the desert, to Jahaz, and he fought against Israel. 24 But Israel struck him with the edge of the sword, and they took possession of his land from Arnon to Jabbok, until the Ammonites,* because the boundary of the Ammonites* was strong. 25 Israel took all these cities, and Israel inhabited all the cities of the Amorites,* in Heshbon, and in all its environs.* 26 Because Heshbon was the city of Sihon king of the Amorites,* who had fought against the former king of Moab and taken all his land from his hand until Arnon. 27 Thus the ones who quote proverbs say,
"Come to Heshbon! Let it be built! And let the city of Sihon be established. 28 Because fire went out from Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon; it consumed Ar of Moab, the lords of the* high places of Arnon. 29 Woe to you, Moab! You have perished, people of Chemosh. He has given his sons as fugitives, and his daughters into captivity, to the king of the Amorites,* Sihon. 30 We destroyed them; Heshbon has perished up to Dibon; we laid waste up to Nophah, which reaches* Medeba." 31 Thus Israel lived in the land of the Amorites.* 32 Moses sent to explore Jaazer; they captured its environs* and dispossessed the Amorites* who were there. 33 Then they turned and went up by the way of the Bashan, and Og king of the Bashan and all his people went out to meet them for battle at Edrei. 34 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Do not fear him because I will give him and all his people and all his land into your hand. You will do to him just as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites,* who was living in Heshbon." 35 And so they destroyed him and his sons, and all his people until they had not spared a survivor; and they took possession of his land.

Deuteronomy 2:26-36

26 "So I sent messengers from the wilderness* of Kedemoth to Sihon king of Heshbon; I sent terms of peace, saying,* 27 'Let me cross through your land and only along the road* I will go; I will not turn aside to the right or to the left. 28 Food for money you shall sell me, so that I may eat, and water for money you will give to me, so that I may drink; just let me cross on foot. 29 Just as the descendants* of Esau did for me, who live in Seir, and the Moabites, who live in Ar, until I cross the Jordan into the land that Yahweh our God is giving to us.' 30 But Sihon king of Heshbon was not willing to let us cross through his territory because Yahweh your God hardened his spirit and made him obstinate* in order to give him* into your hand, just as he has now done.* 31 Yahweh said to me, 'Look! I have begun to give over to you* Sihon and his land; begin to take possession of his land.'* 32 Then Sihon and all his people came out to meet us for battle at Jahaz. 33 And so Yahweh our God gave him over to us,* and we struck him down, and his sons* and all of his people. 34 So we captured all of his cities at that time, and we destroyed each town of males and the women and the children; we did not leave behind a survivor. 35 We took only the livestock as spoil for ourselves,* and also the booty of the cities that we had captured. 36 From Aroer, which is on the edge of the wadi* of Arnon and the city that was in the wadi* on up to Gilead, there was not a city that was inaccessible to us; Yahweh our God gave everything* to us.*

Deuteronomy 3:1-17

1 "Then we turned, and we went up the road to Bashan, and Og the king of Bashan came out to meet us, he and all of his army for the battle at Edrei. 2 And Yahweh said to me, 'You should not fear him, for I have given him and all of his army* and his land into your hand. And so you will do to him as you did to Sihon the king of the Amorites,* who was reigning in Heshbon.' 3 And so Yahweh our God also gave Og the king of Bashan, and all of his army* into our hand, and we struck him down until not a survivor remained to* him. 4 And we captured all of his towns* at that time; there was not a city that we did not take from them. 5 All of these were fortified towns with high walls, gates, and bars,* apart from* very many of the villages of the open country. 6 And so we destroyed them just as we had done to Sihon the king of Heshbon; we destroyed utterly each town of males, the women, and the little children. 7 But all of the livestock and the booty of the towns we kept as spoil for ourselves.* 8 "And so we took at that time the land from the control of* the two kings of the Amorites* who were on the other side of the Jordan,* from the wadi* of Arnon up to Mount Hermon.* 9 (The Sidonians called Hermon 'Sirion,' and the Amorites called it 'Senir.') 10 All of the towns of the plateau and the whole of Gilead and all of Bashan up to Salecah and Edrei, the towns of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 11 (For only Og, king of Bashan, was left from the remnant of the Rephaim. Indeed, his bedstead—it was a bedstead of iron. It is in Rabbah of the Ammonites.* Nine cubits is its length, and four cubits is its width according to the cubit of a man.) 12 And so we took possession of this land at that time, from Aroer, which is on the edge of the wadi* of Arnon, and also half of the hill country of Gilead and its towns I gave to the Reubenites* and to the Gadites.* 13 And the remainder of Gilead and all of Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to the half-tribe of Manasseh, the whole region of Argo. All of that area of Bashan was called the land of the Rephaim. 14 Jair the descendant* of Manasseh acquired the whole region of Argob, up to the boundary of the Geshurites and the Maacathites, and he called it,* that is Bashan, after his own name, Havvoth Jair, as it still is today.* 15 And also I gave Gilead to Makir. 16 And to the Reubenites* and to the Gadites* I gave, from Gilead up to the wadi* of Arnon, the middle of the wadi* as a boundary and up to the Jabbok River,* the boundary of the Ammonites.* 17 And the Jordan Valley* with the Jordan River as its boundary, from Kinnereth* up to the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea,* with the slopes of Pisgah toward the east.

Deuteronomy 32:26

26 I thought, "I will wipe them out; I will make people forget they ever existed."*

Joshua 10:11

17 To him who struck great kings, for his loyal love endures forever. 18 And he killed mighty kings, for his loyal love endures forever. 19 Sihon the king of the Amorites, for his loyal love endures forever. 20 And Og the king of Bashan, for his loyal love endures forever. 21 And he gave their land as an inheritance, for his loyal love endures forever. 22 An inheritance to Israel his servant, for his loyal love endures forever.

Rather it was your right hand and your arm and the light of your presence, because you delighted in them.

15 'And you trusted in your beauty, and you prostituted on account of your name, and you poured out your fornication on every one passing by, saying, "Let it be his." 16 And you took from your clothes and you made for yourself colorful* shrines, and you prostituted on them; this had not happened before,* and it will not continue to happen.* 17 And you took your beautiful jewelry* made from my gold and from my silver that I had given to you, and you made for yourself male images,* and you prostituted with them. 18 And you took the clothes of your beautiful finished cloth, and you covered them and my oil and my incense you set before them.* 19 And my bread that I gave to you, finely milled flour and oil and honey with which I fed you, then you set it before them* as a pleasing odor,* and so it was,' declares* the Lord Yahweh. 20 'And you took your sons and your daughters whom you had borne for me, and you sacrificed them to them to be eaten,* as if your whorings were not enough.* 21 And you slaughtered my children, and you gave them to be sacrificed to them.* 22 And in all of your detestable things and your fornication you did not remember the days of your childhood when you were naked and bare,* when you were kicking about in your blood. 23 " 'And then after all of your evil! Woe, woe, to you!' declares* the Lord Yahweh. 24 'And then you built for yourself a mound, and you made for yourself a high place in every public square. 25 At the head of every street you built your high place and you disgraced your beauty and you spread your feet for every passerby, and you increased your whoring. 26 And you prostituted with the Egyptians,* your neighbors who were sexually aroused,* and you increased your fornication to provoke me. 27 And look! I stretched out my hand against you, and I reduced your portion, and I gave you into* the desire of your haters, the daughters of the Philistines, who were ashamed because of your lewd conduct.* 28 And you prostituted with the Assyrians* on account of your insatiable lust,* and you prostituted with them, and still you were not satisfied. 29 And you increased your fornication to the land of traders,* to Chaldea, and even with this you were not satisfied. 30 How hot with fever was your heart!' declares* the Lord Yahweh. 'When you did* all of these actions of a headstrong female prostitute,* 31 when you built* your mound at the head of every street and your high place you made on every street, yet* you were* not like a prostitute, as you were scorning your harlot's wages. 32 O, adulterous woman! In the place of her husband she received strangers. 33 To all prostitutes they give a fee, but you, you gave your gifts to all of your lovers, and you bribed them to come to you from all around in your whorings! 34 And it was the opposite with you from the other women in your whorings; no one solicited you as a prostitute.* You gave* a harlot's wages, and a harlot's wages were not given to you, and so it was just the opposite. 35 " 'Therefore, prostitute, hear the word of Yahweh. 36 Thus says the Lord Yahweh: Because of the pouring out of your shame and because your nakedness was revealed in your whoring with your lovers, and on account of all of the idols of your detestable things, and according to the blood of your children whom you gave to them, 37 therefore, look! I am gathering all of your lovers whom you were pleased about,* and all of whom you loved in addition to all of whom you hated, and I will gather them against you from everywhere,* and I will uncover your nakedness to them, and they will see all of your nakedness. 38 And I will judge you with the judgment of women committing adultery and shedding blood, and I will give you the blood of rage and jealousy. 39 And I will give you into their hand, and they will demolish your mound, and they will break down your high places, and they will strip you of your clothes, and they will take your beautiful jewelry,* and they will leave you naked and bare. 40 And they will bring up against you a crowd, and they will stone you with stones,* and they will cut you to pieces with their swords. 41 And they will burn your houses with fire, and they will execute against you judgments before* many women, and I will stop you from prostitution, and also a harlot's wages you will not give* again. 42 And I will satisfy my rage on you, and my jealousy will turn away from you, and I will be calm, and I will not be angry any longer. 43 Because* you did not remember* the days of your childhood and you made me angry with all of these. And in turn I, look, I will return your way upon your head,' declares* the Lord Yahweh, 'and did* you not do wickedness* in addition to all of your detestable things? 44 Look! Everyone quoting a proverb* against you, he will quote, saying,* 'Like her mother is her daughter!' 45 You are a daughter of your mother who abhorred her husband and her children, and you are a sister of your sisters who abhorred their husbands and their children. Your mother was a Hittite, and your father was an Amorite. 46 And your elder sister, she is Samaria, and her daughters, who are dwelling on your north, and your younger sister is the one dwelling on your south; she is Sodom and her daughters. 47 And you have not only gone in their ways, but* you also did according to their detestable things. In such a short time* you behaved more corruptly than they in all of your ways. 48 As surely as I live,'* declares* the Lord Yahweh, 'surely your sister Sodom and her daughters did not do as* you and your daughters did. 49 Look! This was the iniquity of Sodom, your sister: Pride, abundance of food, and prosperous ease* was to her and to her daughters, and she did not sustain the needy and the poor.* 50 And they were proud, and they did a detestable thing before me,* and I removed them because* I saw it. 51 And Samaria did not sin according to even half of your sins,* and you caused your detestable things to increase more than they, and you made your sister righteous in comparison with all of your detestable things that you did.* 52 Also,* you bear your disgrace, by which you furnished justification to your sisters* through your sins by which you acted more abominably than they; they were more righteous than you, and also,* you be ashamed and bear your disgrace through your making your sister righteous. 53 And I will restore their fortune, the fortunes of Sodom and her daughters, and the fortunes of Samaria and her daughters, and even the fortunes of your captivity in the midst of them, 54 in order that you may bear your disgrace and you may be put to shame because of all that you did at your consoling them. 55 And as for your sisters, Sodom and her daughters, they will return to their former state, and Samaria and her daughters, they will return to their former state, and you and your daughters will return to your former state. 56 And was not Sodom, your sister, a byword in your mouth in the day of your pride 57 before* your evil was uncovered? It was like the time of the scorn of the daughters of Aram and all those around her, and of the daughters of the Philistines, those all around who are despising you. 58 Your wickedness and your detestable things, you, you must bear them,' declares* Yahweh. 59 'For thus says the Lord Yahweh: And I will do it* to you according to what you have done,* who despised the oath to break covenant. 60 And I, I will remember my covenant with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish with you an everlasting covenant.* 61 And you will remember your ways, and you will be ashamed when you take your sisters, both the older and the younger,* and I give them to you as daughters, but not on account of your covenant. 62 And I, I will establish my covenant with you, and you will know that I am Yahweh, 63 in order that you will remember, and you will be ashamed, and you will not open your mouth again* because of* your disgrace when I forgive you for all that you have done!'" declares* the Lord Yahweh.

Ezekiel 20:21

21 But the children rebelled against me; they did not walk in my statutes,* and they did not observe my regulations,* which if a person does them, then he will live by them. My Sabbaths they desecrated, and I decided to pour out my rage on them, to finish my anger against them in the desert.

Ezekiel 22:25-31

25 The conspiracy of its prophets in the midst of her is like a roaring lion that is tearing prey. They devour people, and they take wealth and treasure; they make its widows numerous in the midst of her. 26 Its priests treat my law violently, and they profane my holy objects; they do not distinguish between a holy object and what is unholy, or between the clean and the unclean. They do not teach the difference, and they hide their eyes from my Sabbaths, and so I am profaned in the midst of them. 27 Its officials are like wolves tearing prey in its midst, to pour out blood, to destroy people, to make dishonest gain. 28 And for them its prophets plaster whitewash; they are seeing falseness and are practicing divination for them by lying, saying, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh,' and Yahweh has not spoken. 29 They severely oppress the people of the land, and they committed robbery,* and they mistreated the needy and the poor, and they oppressed the alien without* justice. 30 And so I sought for them somebody, one repairing the wall and standing in the breach before me* on behalf of the land not to destroy it, but I did not find anyone, 31 and so I poured out my indignation on them. With the fire of my wrath I destroyed them; I returned their way upon their head," declares* the Lord Yahweh.

Ezekiel 23:4-49

4 Now as for their names, the older was Oholah, and Oholibah was her sister. And they became mine,* and they bore sons and daughters, and their names* are Samaria for Oholah, and Jerusalem for Oholibah. 5 And Oholah prostituted herself while she was still mine,* and she lusted for her lovers, for Assyria who was nearby, 6 clothed in blue cloth, governors and prefects, handsome young men* and all of them horsemen, experts on horseback.* 7 And she bestowed her fornication on them, on the choice ones of the Assyrians,* all of them, and with every one after which she lusted; with all of their idols she defiled herself. 8 And her whorings from the time of Egypt she did not abandon, for they slept with her in her childhood, and they caressed the bosoms of her virginity, and they poured out their fornication on her. 9 Therefore I gave her into the hand of her lovers, into the hand of the Assyrians* after whom she lusted.* 10 They uncovered her nakedness; they took her sons and her daughters, and they killed her with the sword. And she became a name for the women, and they executed judgments against her. 11 "And though Oholibah her sister saw, yet in her lust she behaved more corruptly than her,* and her whoring was more than the prostitution of her sister. 12 She lusted after the Assyrians,* governors and prefects, warriors* clothed in* perfection,* expert horsemen,* all of them handsome young men.* 13 And I saw that she was defiled; they had both taken the same path!* 14 And she increased her whorings, and she saw men carved* on the wall, images of Chaldeans* carved in red, 15 belted with a belt at* their waist with turbans on their heads, all of them giving the appearance of adjutants,* the image* of the Babylonians;* Chaldea was the land of their birth. 16 And she lusted for them when her eyes saw them,* and she sent messengers to them at Chaldea. 17 And so the Babylonians* came to her for the bed of lovemaking; and they defiled her with their fornication, and she was defiled by them, and she turned from them. 18 And she revealed her whorings, and she revealed her nakedness, and so I turned from her just as* I turned from her sister. 19 Yet* she increased her whorings, recalling* the days of her childhood when she was prostituted* in the land of Egypt. 20 And she lusted after her male lovers whose genitalia were the genitalia of male donkeys and their seminal emission was the seminal emission of horses. 21 And you longed after the obscene conduct of your youth when your bosom was caressed by Egypt, fondling your young breasts. 22 "Therefore, Oholibah, thus says the Lord Yahweh: 'Look! I am stirring up your lovers against you concerning whom you turned away, and I will bring them against you from all around: 23 the Babylonians* and all of the Chaldeans, Pekod and Shoa and Koa, all of the Assyrians* along with them, handsome young men,* governors and prefects, all of them adjutants* and excellent horsemen.* 24 And they will come against you with an army chariot and wagon and with a crowd* of peoples; they will set themselves against you from all around with large shield and small shield and helmet. And I will give before them* judgment, and they will judge you with their judgments. 25 And I will direct my zeal against you, and they will deal with you in anger; your nose and your ears they will remove, and those who are left,* they will fall by the sword, and they will take your sons and your daughters, and your remnant* will be consumed by fire. 26 And they will strip you of your clothes, and they will take your splendid jewelry.* 27 And I will put an end to your obscene conduct coming from you and your fornication from the land of Egypt, and you will not lift your eyes to them; and you will not remember Egypt again.' 28 For thus says the Lord Yahweh: 'Look! I am giving you into the hand of those you hated, into the hand of those from whom* you turned away. 29 And they will deal with you in hatred, and they will take all of your acquisitions, and they will leave you naked and in bareness; and the nakedness of your fornication and your obscene conduct and your whorings will be exposed. 30 These things are accomplished* against* you since you prostituted yourself after the nations, and on account of that, you defiled yourself by their idols. 31 You went in the same way of your sister, and I will give her cup into your hand." ' 32 Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "You will drink the deep and wide* cup of your sister; you will be as laughter and as scorn; the cup holds so much!* 33 You will be filled with drunkenness and sorrow, for a cup of horror and desolation is the cup of your sister, Samaria. 34 And you will drink it, and you will drain it, and its potsherds you will gnaw, and you will tear out your breasts, for I myself* spoke," declares* the Lord Yahweh. 35 Therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Because you have forgotten me, and you threw me behind your back, now in turn* you bear your obscene conduct and your whorings." 36 And Yahweh said to me, "Son of man,* will you judge Oholah and Oholibah and declare their abominable deeds to* them? 37 For they committed adultery, and blood is on their hands, and they committed adultery with their idols, and even their children that they had borne for me—they sacrificed them as food! 38 Also they did this to me: they defiled my sanctuary on that day, and they profaned my Sabbaths, 39 and when they slaughtered their children for their idols, they came to my sanctuary on that day to profane it. And look, this is what they did in my house!* 40 What is worse,* they sent for men who come* from a distant place, to whom a messenger was sent to them, and look! They came! Men for whom you bathed and painted your eyes, and you adorned yourself with an ornament. 41 And you sat on a magnificent couch and a table prepared before her,* and my incense and my olive oil you put on her.* 42 And a sound of a carefree crowd was with it,* and in addition to these men, a crowd of drunken men* was brought in* from the desert,* and they put bracelets on their arms and a crown of splendor on their heads. 43 And I said to* the one worn out with adulteries, 'Now they will prostitute her concerning her fornication, even her.'* 44 And so they went to her like going to a female* prostitute; and thus they went to Oholah and to Oholibah, the women of obscene conduct. 45 But righteous men, they will judge them with the judgment of committing adultery, and with the judgment of shedding blood; for they were committing adultery, and blood was on their hands." 46 For thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Bring up against them an assembly, and make them as a thing of horror and as plunder. 47 And an assembly must stone them with stones,* and they must cut them down. With their swords they shall kill their sons and their daughters, and with fire they shall burn their houses. 48 And I will cause obscene conduct to cease from the land,* and all of the women will be warned, and they will not do according to your wickedness. 49 And they will repay your obscene conduct upon you, and the guilt of your idols you will bear, and you will know that I am the Lord Yahweh.

Ezekiel 33:3-5

3 and he sees the sword coming against the land, and he blows on the horn and he warns the people, 4 and anyone who listens* hears the sound of the horn and he does not take warning* and the sword comes and it takes him, his blood will be on his own head. 5 For he heard the sound of the horn and he did not take warning; his blood will be on him. But if he took warning, he saved his life.

Matthew 21:35

35 And the tenant farmers seized his slaves, one of whom they beat, and one of whom they killed, and one of whom they stoned.

Matthew 23:34-37

34 For this reason, behold, I am sending to you prophets and wise men and scribes. Some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will flog in your synagogues and will pursue from town to town, 35 so that upon you will come all the righteous blood shed on the earth from the blood of righteous Abel up to the blood of Zechariah son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36 Truly I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation! 37 "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How many times I wanted to gather your children together the way* a hen gathers her young together under her* wings, and you were not willing!

29 But from there you shall seek Yahweh your God and will find him, if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.* 30 In your distress* when* all these things have found you in the latter days,* then* you will return to Yahweh your God, and you will listen to his voice. 31 For Yahweh your God is a compassionate God; he will not abandon you,* and he will not destroy you, and he will not forget the covenant of your ancestors* that he swore to them.

Deuteronomy 31:16-18

16 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Look, you are about to lie down with your ancestors,* and this people will arise and they* will play the prostitute after the foreign gods* of the land to which they are going.* 17 And my anger shall flare up against them* on that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they* shall become as prey, and disasters and troubles shall find* them,* and they* shall say on that day, 'Is it not because our* God is not in our* midst that these disasters have found* us?'* 18 But I will certainly hide my face on that day, because of all of the evil that they* did because they* turned to other gods.

Judges 2:14-16

14 So the anger of Yahweh was kindled* against Israel, and he gave them into the hand of plunderers; and they plundered them, and he sold them into the hand of their enemies from all sides. They were unable to withstand their enemies any longer. 15 Whenever* they went out, the hand of Yahweh was against them to harm them, just as Yahweh warned, and just as Yahweh had sworn to them. And they were very distressed.* 16 Then Yahweh raised up leaders,* and they delivered them from the hand of their plunderers.

Judges 2:18

18 And when Yahweh raised leaders* for them, Yahweh was with the leader,* and he delivered them from the hand of their enemies all the days of the leader,* for Yahweh was moved by their groaning because of their persecutors and oppressors.

Judges 3:8-30

8 And the anger of Yahweh was kindled* against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Cushan-Rishathaim, the king of Aram Naharaim; and the Israelites* served Cushan-Rishathaim eight years. 9 The Israelites* cried out to Yahweh, and Yahweh raised up a deliverer for the Israelites* who delivered them, Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother. 10 And the spirit of Yahweh came upon him, and he judged Israel. He went out to war, and Yahweh gave Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram into his hand, and he prevailed over* Cushan-Rishathaim. 11 So the land rested forty years. Then Othniel son of Kenaz died. 12 And again the Israelites* did evil in the eyes of Yahweh. So Yahweh strengthened Eglon king of Moab against Israel, because they did evil in the eyes of Yahweh. 13 He gathered to himself the Ammonites and Amalekites,* and he went and defeated Israel, and they took possession of the city of palms. 14 And the Israelites* served Eglon king of Moab eighteen years. 15 And the Israelites* cried out to Yahweh, and Yahweh raised up for them a deliverer, Ehud son of Gera, a Benjaminite and a left-handed man.* And the Israelites* sent a tribute to Eglon king of Moab through him.* 16 Ehud made for himself a short, two-edged* sword (a cubit in length), and he fastened it under his clothes on his right thigh. 17 Then he presented the tribute to Eglon king of Moab. Now Eglon was a very fat man. 18 When Ehud* had finished presenting the tribute, he sent away the people who carried the tribute. 19 But he turned back from the sculptured stones* that were near Gilgal, and he said, "I have a secret message* for you, O king." And he* said, "Silence!" So all those standing in his presence went out, 20 and Ehud came to him while he was sitting alone in his cool upper room. And Ehud said, "I have a message from God* for you." So he got up from his seat. 21 Then Ehud reached with his left hand for the sword on his right thigh, and he thrust it into his* stomach. 22 And the handle also went in after the blade, and the fat closed over the blade because he did not draw back the sword from his stomach; and it went protruding out the back.* 23 And Ehud went out the vestibule, and he closed the doors of the upper room and locked them behind him. 24 After he left, his servants returned. When they saw that the doors of the upper room were locked, they thought,* "Surely he is relieving himself* in the cool inner room." 25 And they waited so long they became embarrassed because he did not open the doors of the upper room. So they took the key and opened the doors, and there their lord was lying on the ground dead. 26 And Ehud escaped while they delayed. He passed by the sculptured stones* and escaped to Seirah. 27 And when he arrived he sounded the trumpet in the hill country of Ephraim, and the Israelites* went down from the hill country with him leading them. 28 And he said to them, "Follow after me! Yahweh has given Moab your enemies into your hand." So they went down after him, and they captured the fords of the Jordan toward Moab; and they did not allow anyone to cross over. 29 And they struck Moab at that time, about ten thousand men, all strong and able men;* no one escaped. 30 And Moab was subdued on that day under the hand of Israel. And the land rested eighty years.*

6 Israel was very poor because of the presence of the Midianites,* and the Israelites* cried out to Yahweh. 7 When the Israelites* cried out to Yahweh on account of the Midianites,* 8 Yahweh sent a prophet to the Israelites,* and he said to them, "Thus says Yahweh the God of Israel: 'I brought you up from Egypt; I brought you from the house of slavery.* 9 I delivered you from the hand of Egypt and from the hand of all your oppressors, and drove them out from before you;* and I gave you their land. 10 And I said to you, 'I am Yahweh your God; do not fear* the gods of the Amorites,* in whose land you are living.'

Indeed, Yahweh our God is righteous concerning all his works* that he has done, but we have not listened to his voice.

But Neco took Jehoahaz his brother and brought him to Egypt. 5 Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And he did evil in the eyes of Yahweh his God. 6 Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon went up against him, and he bound him with bronze fetters to bring him to Babylon. 7 And Nebuchadnezzar brought to Babylon the objects of the house of Yahweh and put them into the temple in Babylon. 8 Now the remainder of the words of Jehoiakim and the detestable things that he did and what was found against him, behold, they are written in the scroll of the kings of Israel and Judah.

He stiffened his neck and hardened his heart against turning to Yahweh, the God of Israel. 14 All the leaders of the priests and the people likewise increased in unfaithfulness according to all the detestable things of the nations. And they polluted the house of Yahweh that he had consecrated in Jerusalem. 15 And Yahweh, the God of their ancestors,* had repeatedly and persistently sent to them by the hand of his messengers, because he had compassion on his people and on his dwelling place. 16 But they were mocking the messengers of God and despising his words and scoffing at his prophets until the wrath of Yahweh rose against his people until there was no remedy. 17 Therefore he brought against them the king of the Chaldeans, and he killed their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary. He showed no mercy on a young man, a virgin, the elderly, or decrepit. He delivered all into his hand. 18 And all the vessels of the house of God, the great and the small, the storehouses of the house of Yahweh, and the storehouses of the king and his princes, these all he brought to Babylon. 19 And they burned the house of God. And they shattered the walls of Jerusalem and burned its citadels with fire and destroyed all the vessels of its treasuries. 20 And he took those who escaped the sword* to Babylon. And they became servants to him and to his sons until the rule of the kingdom of Persia, 21 to fulfill the word of Yahweh by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land has enjoyed its Sabbaths. All the days of desolation it kept Sabbath, to fulfill seventy years. 22 And in the first year of Cyrus, the king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of Yahweh by the mouth of Jeremiah, Yahweh stirred up the spirit of Cyrus, king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation* throughout all his kingdom and also in writing, saying: 23 "Thus says Cyrus, king of Persia: 'Yahweh the God of heaven has given to me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has appointed me to build a house for him at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever is among you from all his people, may Yahweh his God go up with him.'"

1 And this happened: In the fourteenth year* of King Hezekiah, Sennacherib king of Assyria went up against all the fortified cities of Judah, and he captured them. 2 And the king of Assyria sent Rabshakeh* from Lachish to Jerusalem, to King Hezekiah, with a large army, and he stood by the conduit of the upper pool on the highway of the field of the washer. 3 And Eliakim son of Hilkiah, who was in charge of the palace,* came out to him, and Shebna the secretary, and Joah son of Asaph, the reminder. 4 And Rabshakeh said to them, "Now say to Hezekiah, 'Thus says the great king, the king of Assyria: "What is this confidence in which you trust? 5 I said, 'Only a word of lips! War has power and a plan!'* Now, in whom do you trust, that you have rebelled against me? 6 Look, you trust in the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt, which if a man leans on it, goes into his hand and bores through it! Such is Pharaoh, king of Egypt, to all those who trust in him. 7 And if you say to me, 'We trust in Yahweh our God,' was it not he whose high places and altars Hezekiah removed? And he said to Judah and to Jerusalem, 'You shall bow down in the presence* of this altar.'" 8 And now please make a wager with my master the king of Assyria, and I will give you two thousand horses, that is, if you are able put* riders for yourself on them! 9 But how can you drive back one governor among the least of my master's servants,* when* you trust in Egypt for chariots* and horsemen? 10 And now was it without Yahweh that I have come up against this land to destroy it? Yahweh said to me, "Go up against this land and destroy it!" '" 11 And Eliakim, Shebna, and Joah said to Rabshakeh, "Please speak to your servants in Aramaic, for we can understand* it, and you must not speak to us in Judean in the hearing* of the people who are on the wall." 12 But* Rabshakeh said, "Has my master sent me to speak these words to your masters and you? Was it not for the people who sit on the wall, to eat their dung and drink their urine* with you?" 13 Then* Rabshakeh stood and called in a great voice in Judean and said, "Hear the words of the great king, the king of Assyria. 14 Thus says the king: 'Do not let Hezekiah deceive you, for he will not be able to deliver you! 15 And do not let Hezekiah make you rely on Yahweh, saying, "Surely Yahweh will deliver us; this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria!" 16 You must not listen to Hezekiah, for thus says the king of Assyria: "Make a blessing* with me, and come out to me, and each one will eat from his vine and from his fig tree and drink water from* his cistern, 17 until I come* and take you to a land like your land, a land of grain and new wine, a land of bread and vineyards, 18 lest Hezekiah mislead you, saying, 'Yahweh will save us!' Did the gods of the nations each save his land from the hand of the king of Assyria? 19 Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim? Indeed, have they delivered Samaria from my hand? 20 Who are there among all the gods of these countries who have saved their land from my hand, that Yahweh should save Jerusalem from my hand?" '" 21 But* they were silent and did not answer him a word, for the command of the king was, "You must not answer him." 22 Then* Eliakim son of Hilkiah, who was over the palace,* Shebna the secretary, and Joah son of Asaph, the reminder, came to Hezekiah with torn garments and told him the words of Rabshakeh.

Jeremiah 8:1-3

1 "At that time," declares* Yahweh, "they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of its officials, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Judah from their graves. 2 And they shall spread them out before the sun, and before the moon, and before all the host of heaven, which they have loved, and which they have served, and which they have gone after, and which they have inquired about, and to which they have bowed in worship. They shall not be gathered, and they shall not be buried; they will be like dung on the surface of the ground. 3 And death will be preferred to life by all the remaining of this evil clan* in all the remaining places where I have driven them away," declares* Yahweh.

Jeremiah 22:18-19

18 Therefore* thus says Yahweh concerning Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, the king of Judah:
"They will not lament for him, 'Alas, my brother,' or 'Alas, sister.' They will not lament for him, 'Alas, lord,' or 'alas, his majesty.' 19 He will be buried with the burial of a donkey. He will be* dragged away and thrown outside* the gates of Jerusalem.

19 the officials of Judah, and the officials of Jerusalem, the eunuchs, and the priests, and all the people of the land who passed between the parts of the calf— 20 and I will give them into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of the seekers of their lives, and their dead bodies* will become as food for the birds* of the heavens* and for the animals* of the earth. 21 And Zedekiah the king of Judah and his officials I will give into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of the seekers of their lives, and into the hand of the army of the king of Babylon, who retreated from you. 22 Look, I am going to command,' declares* Yahweh, 'and I will bring them back to this city, and they will fight against it, and they will capture it, and they will burn it with fire, and the towns of Judah I will make a desolation without* an inhabitant.'"

Jeremiah 39:1-18

1 In the ninth year of Zedekiah, the king of Judah, in the tenth month, Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon and all his army came against Jerusalem and laid siege to it. 2 In the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, on the ninth day of the month, the city was taken by assault. 3 And all the officials of the king of Babylon came and sat in the Middle Gate: Nergal-sharezer, Samgar-nebo, Sarsechim the chief officer, Nergal-sharezer the high official, with all the rest of the officials of the king of Babylon. 4 And then* when* Zedekiah the king of Judah saw them, and all the soldiers* with him, they fled and went out at night from the city by the way of the garden of the king through the gate between the walls. And they went out toward the Jordan Valley. 5 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued after them and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho. And they took him and brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon at Riblah in the land of Hamath. And he pronounced sentence* on him. 6 And the king of Babylon slaughtered the sons of Zedekiah at Riblah before his eyes. The king of Babylon also slaughtered all the nobles of Judah. 7 Then he blinded the eyes of Zedekiah and tied him up with bronze fetters to bring him to Babylon. 8 And the Chaldeans burned the palace* of the king and the houses* of the people with fire and broke down the walls of Jerusalem. 9 Then the rest of the people who were left in the city, and those deserting who had deserted to him, and the rest of the people who remained, Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard,* deported to Babylon. 10 And some of the poor people, who had nothing,* Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard,* left in the land of Judah. And he gave them vineyards and fields on that day. 11 And Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon commanded concerning Jeremiah through* Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard,* saying,* 12 "Take him and set your eyes on him. And you must not do something bad to him, but only* that which he speaks to you, so do with him." 13 So Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard,* sent word, along with* Nebushazban the chief officer, and Nergal-sharezer the high official, and all the chief officers of the king of Babylon. 14 And they sent and took Jeremiah from the courtyard of the guard and gave him to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, to take him to the house, so he stayed in the midst of the people. 15 And the word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah at his confinement in the courtyard of the guard, saying,* 16 "Go and say to Ebed-melech the Cushite, saying,* 'Thus says Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel: "Look, I am about to bring my words to pass against this city for evil and not for good. And they will be before you* on that day. 17 But I will rescue you on that day," declares* Yahweh, "and you will not be given into the hand of the men of whom you are frightened.* 18 For surely I will save you, and you will not fall by the sword. But your life will be for you as booty because you have trusted in me," declares* Yahweh.'"

Jeremiah 52:1-34

1 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old* at his beginning to reign, and he reigned eleven years* in Jerusalem. And the name of his mother was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 2 And he did evil in the eyes of Yahweh like all that Jehoiakim had done. 3 For because of the anger* of Yahweh this happened in Jerusalem and Judah until his casting them from his presence.* And Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon. 4 And then* in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, on the tenth day of the month, Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon came against Jerusalem, he and all his army. And they laid siege to it, and built siege works* against it all around. 5 So the city came under siege* until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. 6 In the fourth month, on the ninth day of the month, the famine in the city became severe and there was no food for the people of the land. 7 Then the city was breached, and all the soldiers* fled and went out from the city by night by the way of the gate between the two walls that are at the garden of the king, though the Chaldeans were all around the city. And they went in the direction of the Jordan Valley.* 8 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued after the king and they overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho, and all his army was scattered from him. 9 Then they captured the king and brought him up to the king of Babylon at Riblah in the land of Hamath, and he passed sentence on him.* 10 And the king of Babylon slaughtered the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, and he also slaughtered all the officials of Judah at Riblah. 11 Then he made blind the eyes of Zedekiah, and they tied him up with bronze fetters, and the king of Babylon brought him to Babylon. And he put him in prison* until the day of his death. 12 Now in the fifth month, on the tenth day of the month, which was the nineteenth year of King Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard,* who stood before* the king of Babylon, entered into Jerusalem. 13 And he burned the temple* of Yahweh, and the palace* of the king, and all the houses of Jerusalem, even every great house he burned with fire. 14 And all the army of the Chaldeans who were with the captain of the guard* broke down all the walls of Jerusalem all around. 15 And Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard* deported some of the poor of the people, and the rest of the people who were left in the city, and the deserters who deserted to the king of Babylon, along with the rest of the craftsmen. 16 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard* left some of the poor of the land to serve as vinedressers and farmers. 17 And the Chaldeans broke the pillars of bronze that were in the temple* of Yahweh, and the kettle stands and the sea of bronze that were in the temple* of Yahweh, and they carried all their bronze to Babylon. 18 And they took with them the pots, and the shovels, and the snuffers, and the sprinkling bowls, and the pans, and all the vessels of bronze which were used in temple service. 19 And the captain of the guard* took the bowls, and the firepans, and the sprinkling bowls, and the pots, and the lampstands, and the pans, and the libation bowls, those made of solid gold* and those made of solid silver.* 20 The two pillars, the one sea, and the twelve bronze oxen that were under the kettle stands which King Solomon had made for the temple* of Yahweh—there was not a weight for the bronze of all these vessels! 21 Now the pillars, the height of one pillar was eighteen cubits,* and a thread of twelve cubits* surrounded it, and its thickness was four fingers, hollowed out. 22 And a capital upon it was bronze and the height of the one capital was five cubits, and latticework and pomegranates were on the capital on all sides, all of bronze. And like these was the second pillar with pomegranates. 23 And there were ninety-six pomegranates on the sides;* all the pomegranates on the latticework on all sides were a hundred. 24 Then the captain of the guard* took Seraiah the chief priest,* and Zephaniah the second priest,* and three keepers of the threshold. 25 And from the city he took one high official who was chief officer over the soldiers,* and seven men of the king's advisors* who were found in the city, and the secretary of the commander of the army who levied for military service the people of the land, and sixty men* of the people of the land who were found in the midst of the city. 26 Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard* took them and brought them to the king of Babylon at Riblah. 27 And the king of Babylon struck them down and killed them at Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah left from its land. 28 This is the number of the people whom Nebuchadnezzar deported: in the seventh year, three thousand twenty-three Judeans; 29 in the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar, eight hundred and thirty-two persons* from Jerusalem; 30 in the twenty-third year of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard,* deported seven hundred and forty-five Judean persons;* there were four thousand six hundred persons* in all. 31 And then* in the thirty-seventh year of the exile of Jehoiachin, the king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the twenty-fifth day of the month, Evil-merodach, the king of Babylon, in the first year of his reign, lifted up the head of Jehoiachin, the king of Judah, and brought him out from prison.* 32 Then he spoke with him kindly and gave his seat above the seats* of the kings who were with him in Babylon. 33 So he changed the garments of his imprisonment and he ate food before him* continually all the days of his life. 34 And his allowance, a continual allowance was given to him by the king of Babylon on a daily basis* all the days of his life up to the day of his death.
