1 And so it was, after the death of Saul, when David had returned from the smiting of the Amalekites, and David had abode in Ziklag two days, 2 yea so it was, on the third day, that lo! a man came out of the camp, from Saul, with his clothes rent, and earth upon his head,—and so it was, when he came in unto David, that he fell to the earth, and did homage. 3 And David said unto him, From whence comest thou? And he said unto him, Out of the camp of Israel, am I escaped. 4 And David said unto him—How turned out the matter? tell me, I pray thee. And he said—The people have fled from the battle, yea moreover, many, of the people have fallen, and died, Yea moreover, Saul, and Jonathan his son, are dead. 5 Then said David unto the young man who was telling him,—How knowest thou that Saul and Jonathan his son are dead? 6 And the young man who was telling him said, It, so happened, that I was on Mount Gilboa, when lo! Saul, leaning upon his spear, and lo! the chariots and horsemen, hotly pursued him; 7 so he turned behind him, and saw me,—and cried out unto me, and I said, Behold me! 8 And he said unto me, Who art thou? And I said unto him, An Amalekite, am I. 9 And he said unto me, I pray thee, take thy stand by me, and put me to death, for the cramp hath seized me,—even for as long as my life shall be in me. 10 So I took my stand by him, and put him to death, for I perceived that he could not survive his fall,—so I took the crown that was on his head, and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them in unto my lord, here. 11 Then David took hold of his clothes, and rent them,—yea moreover, [so did] all the men who were with him. 12 And they lamented aloud, and wept, and fasted until the evening,—for Saul, and for Jonathan his son, and for the people of Yahweh, and for the house of Israel, because they had fallen by the sword. 13 And David said unto the young man who was telling him, Whence art thou? And he said, Son of a sojourner—an Amalekite, am I. 14 And David said unto him,—How wast thou not afraid to thrust forth thy hand, to destroy the Anointed of Yahweh? 15 So David called one of the young men, and said,—Go near—fall upon him. And he smote him, that he died. 16 And David said unto him, Thy blood, be upon thine own head,—for, thine own mouth, hath testified against thee, saying, I myself, put to death the Anointed of Yahweh. 17 Then chanted David this dirge,—over Saul and over Jonathan his son; 18 and he thought to teach the sons of Judah [the song of] the Bow,—lo! it is written in the Book of the Upright:— 19 The beauty of Israel! on thy high plumes—slain! How have fallen—the mighty! 20 Do not tell it in Gath, Do not publish it in the streets of Ashkelon,—lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, lest the daughters of the Uncircumcised triumph. 21 Ye mountains in Gilboa! Be there neither dew nor rain upon you, nor fields of offerings,—for, there, were cast away, the shields of the mighty, The shield of Saul, unanointed with oil. 22 From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan ne’er drew back,—and, the sword of Saul, ne’er returned, empty. 23 Saul and Jonathan, delightfully loving in their lives, even, in their death, were not divided,—Beyond eagles, were they swift, beyond lions, were they strong! 24 Ye daughters of Israel! For Saul, weep ye,—who clothed you in crimson, [decked] with lovely things, who hung ornaments of gold on your apparel! 25 How have fallen the mighty, in the midst of the battle! Jonathan, on thy high places, slain! 26 I am distressed for thee, my brother, Jonathan! Delightful to me, exceedingly,—Wonderful, was thy love to me, passing the love of women. 27 How have fallen the mighty, and perished the weapons of war!

I am with thee!), according to thine own heart. 8 Then said Jonathan, Lo! we, are crossing over unto the men,—and will discover ourselves unto them. 9 If, thus, they say unto us, Keep quiet until we get to you, then will we stand still where we are, and will not go up unto them; 10 but, if thus, they say, Come up unto us, then will we go up; for Yahweh hath delivered them into our hand,—This, then, is our sign. 11 So they two discovered themselves unto the garrison of the Philistines,—and the Philistines said—Lo! Hebrews, coming forth out of the holes, wherein they had hidden themselves. 12 And the men of the garrison responded to Jonathan and his armour-bearer, and said—Come up unto us, and we will let you know a thing. Then said Jonathan unto his armour-bearer—Come up after me, for Yahweh hath delivered them into the hand of Israel. 13 So Jonathan went up on his hands and on his feet, and, his armour-bearer, followed him,—and they fell before Jonathan, and, his armour-bearer, was slaying after him.

2 but, Jonathan, Saul’s son, delighted in David, exceedingly,—so Jonathan told David, saying, Saul, my father, is seeking to put thee to death,—now, therefore, take heed to thyself I pray thee, in the morning, and abide thou in concealment, and hide thyself;
2 And he said unto him—Far be it! thou shalt not die. Lo! my father doeth nothing, great or small, without unveiling mine ear,—wherefore, then, should my father hide from me, this thing? There is, nothing, in this.
17 And again Jonathan sware unto David, by his love to him,—for, as he loved his own soul, so loved he him.

23 And, when Abigail saw David, she hastened, and alighted from off her ass,—and fell down before David upon her face, and prostrated herself on the ground;

6 So Achish gave him, on that day, Ziklag,—wherefore Ziklag hath pertained unto the kings of Judah, unto this day.
8 And David and his men went up, and made a raid against the Geshurites and the Gizrites and the Amalekites,—for, they, were the inhabitants of the land who had been from age-past times, as thou enterest Shur, even as far as the land of Egypt.
4 So then the Philistines gathered themselves together, and came in, and encamped in Shunem,—and Saul gathered together all Israel, and they encamped in Gilboa.
1 And it came to pass, when David and his men came to Ziklag on the third day, that, the Amalekites, had made a raid into the South, and into Ziklag, and had smitten Ziklag, and burned it with fire;
13 Then David said to him—Whose art thou? and whence art thou? And he said, A young man of Egypt, am I, servant to an Amalekite, and my lord left me behind, because I fell sick, three days ago.
17 And David smote them, from the closing twilight even unto the evening of the next day,—and there escaped not of them a man, save four hundred young men who rode upon camels, and fled.
17 And David smote them, from the closing twilight even unto the evening of the next day,—and there escaped not of them a man, save four hundred young men who rode upon camels, and fled. 18 And David rescued all whom the Amalekites had taken,—his two wives also, did David rescue; 19 and there was nothing missing to them—whether small or great, whether spoil, or sons or daughters, or, any thing which they had taken unto themselves,—the whole, did David recover. 20 And David took all the flocks and the herds,—they drave them before those other cattle, and they said, This, is David’s spoil. 21 And David came unto the two hundred men, who had been too wearied to follow David, and whom they had suffered to remain at the ravine of Besor,—and they came forth to meet David, and to meet the people who were with him, and when David came near unto the people, they enquired of his success. 22 Then responded every man who was bad and abandoned, from among the men who had been with David, and said—Because they went not with me there shall not be given them of the spoil that we have rescued,—save, to every man, his wife and his children, let them put them forth, then, and go. 23 Then said David, Ye shall not do so, my brethren,—with that which Yahweh hath given to us, who hath preserved us, and delivered the troop that came against us into our hand. 24 Who indeed, could hearken unto you, in this mutter? Surely, like the share of him that went down into the battle, even, so, shall be the share of him that remained by the stores—alike, shall they share. 25 And so it came to pass, from that day forward, that he appointed it, for a statute and for a custom unto Israel, until this day. 26 And, when David came to Ziklag, he sent of the spoil, unto the elders of Judah, unto his friends, saying,—Lo! for you, a blessing, out of the spoil of the enemies of Yahweh:
2 And the Philistines followed hard after Saul, and after his sons,—and the Philistines smote Jonathan and Abinadab and Malchishua, sons of Saul.
3 And the battle went sore against Saul, and the archers discovered him,—and he was terrified at the archers.
3 And the battle went sore against Saul, and the archers discovered him,—and he was terrified at the archers. 4 Then said Saul to his armour-bearer—Draw thy sword and pierce me through therewith, lest these uncircumcised come, and pierce me through, and abuse me.

4 Then said Saul to his armour-bearer—Draw thy sword and pierce me through therewith, lest these uncircumcised come, and pierce me through, and abuse me.

5 And, when his armour-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he also, fell upon his sword, and died with him.
6 Thus died Saul, and his three sons, and his armour-bearer, yea all his men, on that day, together.
6 Thus died Saul, and his three sons, and his armour-bearer, yea all his men, on that day, together. 7 And, when the men of Israel who were across the vale, and who were across the Jordan, saw that the men of Israel had fled, and that Saul and his sons were dead, they forsook the cities, and fled, and the Philistines entered, and took up their abode therein. 8 And it came to pass on the morrow, when the Philistines came to strip the slain, that they found Saul, and his three sons, lying prostrate in Mount Gilboa.
8 And it came to pass on the morrow, when the Philistines came to strip the slain, that they found Saul, and his three sons, lying prostrate in Mount Gilboa. 9 So they cut off his head, and stripped off his armour,—and sent throughout the land of the Philistines round about, to publish it in the house of their idols, and unto the people.
8 And he said unto me, Who art thou? And I said unto him, An Amalekite, am I.
10 So I took my stand by him, and put him to death, for I perceived that he could not survive his fall,—so I took the crown that was on his head, and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them in unto my lord, here.
19 The beauty of Israel! on thy high plumes—slain! How have fallen—the mighty!
21 Ye mountains in Gilboa! Be there neither dew nor rain upon you, nor fields of offerings,—for, there, were cast away, the shields of the mighty, The shield of Saul, unanointed with oil.
23 Saul and Jonathan, delightfully loving in their lives, even, in their death, were not divided,—Beyond eagles, were they swift, beyond lions, were they strong!
25 How have fallen the mighty, in the midst of the battle! Jonathan, on thy high places, slain!
27 How have fallen the mighty, and perished the weapons of war!
18 Now there were there, three sons of Zeruiah, Joab, and Abishai, and Asahel,—and, Asahel, was light of foot as a wild gazelle.
28 And, when David heard of it, after that, he said—Guiltless, am I and my kingdom before Yahweh, unto times age-abiding,—of the blood of Abner son of Ner. 29 Let it be hurled upon the head of Joab, and against all his father’s house,—and let there not fail from the house of Joab—one that hath an issue, or a leper, or one that leaneth on a crutch, or that falleth by the sword, or that lacketh bread.
31 And David said unto Joab, and unto all the people who were with him,—Rend your clothes, and gird you with sackcloth, and lament aloud before Abner. And, King David himself, was following the bier.
35 And, when all the people came near to get David to eat bread, while yet it was day, David sware, saying—So, let God do to me, and, so, let him add, if, before the sun go in, I taste bread, or anything else.
10 when he that brought tidings to me, saying, Lo! Saul is dead, though, he, was as one that bringeth good tidings, in his own eyes, yet I seized him, and slew him in Ziklag,—which was how I gave him reward for his tidings:
10 when he that brought tidings to me, saying, Lo! Saul is dead, though, he, was as one that bringeth good tidings, in his own eyes, yet I seized him, and slew him in Ziklag,—which was how I gave him reward for his tidings: 11 how much more, when, lawless men, have slain a righteous person, in his own house, upon his bed? …Now, therefore, must I not require his blood at your hands, and so consume you, out of the earth? 12 David therefore commanded the young men, and they slew them, and cut off their hands, and their feet, and hanged them up over the pool, in Hebron,—but, the head of Ish-bosheth, took they, and buried in the grave of Abner, in Hebron.
6 Now, when Mephibosheth, son of Jonathan, son of Saul, came in unto David, he fell on his face and did homage. And David said, Mephibosheth? And he said, Lo! thy servant.
30 Then took he the crown of Milcom from off his head, the weight thereof, being a talent of gold, with the precious stones, and it remained on the head of David,—the spoil of the city also, brought he forth in great abundance;
31 And the king arose, and rent his garments, and lay on the ground,—and all his servants who stood by rent their garments.
4 And, when the woman of Tekoa came in unto the king, she fell on her face to the ground, and did homage,—and said—Save, O king!
32 And it came to pass, when David reached the summit, where he bowed himself down unto God, that lo! there met him, Hushai the Archite, his tunic rent, and earth upon his head.
20 Benaiah also, son of Jehoiadah, son of an active man, hero of many a deed, a man of Kabzeel, he, smote the two sons of Ariel of Moab, he, also went down and smote a lion in the midst of a pit, on a day of snow;
25 So King Solomon sent by the hand of Benaiah son of Jehoiada,—and he fell upon him, that he died.
32 thus will Yahweh bring back his blood upon his own head, in that he fell upon two men more righteous and better than he, and slew them with the sword, my father David not knowing it,—even Abner son of Ner, general of the army of Israel, and Amasa son of Jether, general of the army of Judah; 33 thus shall their blood come back upon the head of Joab, and upon the head of his seed unto times age-abiding,—but, David and his seed, and his house, and his throne, shall have peace, unto times age-abiding, from Yahweh. 34 So Benaiah son of Jehoiada went up, and fell upon him, and put him to death,—and he was buried in his own house, in the wilderness.
37 but it shall be that, on the day thou goest forth, and passest over the Kidron ravine, know, that thou shalt, die,—thy blood, shall be, upon thine own head.
46 So the king charged Benaiah son of Jehoiada, and he went out and fell upon him, that he died,—and, the kingdom, was established in the hand of Solomon.
12 And, as soon as Elisha saw it, he, began crying out—My father! my father! The chariots of Israel, and the horsemen thereof! But, when he could see him no longer, he took hold of his clothes, and rent them in two pieces.
25 Now, when, he, came in and stood before his lord, Elisha said unto him, Whence comest thou, Gehazi? And he said,—Thy servant hath been neither hither nor thither.
12 Then brought he forth the king’s son, and set upon him the crown, and the testimony, and they made him king, and anointed him,—and clapped their hands, and said—May the king live!
14 Now, Elisha, had fallen sick of his sickness whereof he was about to die,—so then Joash king of Israel came down unto him, and wept upon his face, and said, My father! my father! The chariots of Israel and the horsemen thereof!
1 Now, the Philistines, fought against Israel,—and the men of Israel fled from before the Philistines, and the wounded fell in Mount Gilboa.
1 Now, the Philistines, fought against Israel,—and the men of Israel fled from before the Philistines, and the wounded fell in Mount Gilboa. 2 And the Philistines followed hard after Saul, and after his sons,—and the Philistines smote Jonathan, and Abinadab, and Malchishua, sons of Saul. 3 And the battle, went sore, against Saul, and the archers discovered him with the bow,—and he was terrified because of the archers. 4 Therefore said Saul unto his armour-bearer, Draw out thy sword and thrust me through therewith, lest these uncircumcised come and abuse me. But his armour-bearer would not, for he feared greatly,—so then Saul took the sword, and fell upon it. 5 And, when his armour-bearer saw that Saul was dead, then, he also, fell upon the sword, and died. 6 So Saul died, and his three sons, and, all his house, together, died.
8 And it came to pass, on the morrow, when the Philistines came to strip the slain,—that they found Saul, and his sons, lying prostrate in Mount Gilboa.
8 And, of the Gadites, there separated themselves unto David, to the stronghold towards the desert, heroes of valour, men of war, for battle, men that could handle shield and spear,—and, faces of lions, were their faces, and, like gazelles upon the mountains, were they, for swiftness:
25 And Jeremiah chanted a dirge over Josiah, and all the singing men and singing women in their dirges have spoken concerning Josiah, until this day, and they appointed them by statute for Israel,—and, there they are, written among the dirges.
16 Go! gather ye together all the Jews who are to be found in Shusan, and fast ye for me—and neither eat nor drink—three days, night nor day, and, I and my maidens, will fast so,—and, in this manner, will I go in unto the king, though it is not according to the law, and, when I have perished, I have perished!
1 And it came to pass, on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the house of the king, over against the house of the king,—and, the king, was sitting upon his royal seat, in the royal house, over against the opening of the house.
15 when the Sabeans swooped down, and took them, and, the young men, smote they with the edge of the sword,—and escaped am, only I alone, too tell thee. 16 Yet was this one speaking, when, another, came in and said,—A fire of God, fell out of the heavens, and burned up the sheep and the young men, and consumed them; and escaped am, only I alone, to tell thee. 17 Yet was this one speaking, when, another, came in and said, The Chaldeans, appointed three chiefs, and spread out against the camels, and took them, and, the young men, smote they with the edge of the sword; and escaped am, only I alone, to tell thee. 18 Yet was this one speaking, when, another, came in and said,—Thy sons and thy daughters, were eating, and drinking wine, in the house of their eldest brother; 19 when lo! a great wind, came from over the desert, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they died,—and escaped am, only I alone, to tell thee.
3 Perish, the day wherein I was born, and the night it was said, Lo! a manchild! 4 That day, be it darkness,—Let not God enquire after it from above, May there shine upon it no clear beam: 5 Let darkness and death-shade buy it back, May there settle down upon it a cloud, Let a day’s dark eclipse cause it terror: 6 That night, darkness take it,—May it not rejoice among the days of the year, Into the number of months, let it not enter. 7 Lo! that night, be it barren, Let no joyous shouting enter therein: 8 Let day-cursers denounce it, Those skilled in rousing the dragon of the sky: 9 Darkened be the stars of its twilight,—Let it wait for light, and there be none, neither let it see the eyelashes of the dawn: 10 Because it closed not the doors of the womb wherein I was, and so hid trouble from mine eyes.
12 Who doth frustrate the schemes of the crafty, that their hands cannot achieve abiding success;
26 They have passed away with boats of paper-reed, like a vulture [which] rusheth upon food.
6 Thine own mouth shall condemn thee, and, not I, And, thine own lips, shall testify against thee.
9 Causing wars to cease unto the end of the earth,—The bow, he shivereth, And breaketh in pieces the spear, war-chariots, burneth he up with fire.
3 Say unto God—How fearful in thy doings, Through the abounding of thy power, shall thy foes come cringing unto thee;
12 Kings of armies, they flee! they flee! And, she that stayeth at home, shall share the spoil.
15 Ye may not touch mine Anointed ones, And, to my Prophets, may ye do no wrong.
2 Thou hast been snared by the sayings of thy mouth,—thou hast been caught by the sayings of thy mouth.
18 The lawless man, earneth the wages of falsehood, but, he that soweth righteousness, hath the reward of fidelity.
15 The simple, believeth every word, but, the prudent, looketh well to his going.
17 When thine enemy falleth, do not thou rejoice, and, when he stumbleth, let not thy heart exult:
2 The glory of God, is to conceal a thing, but, the glory of kings, is to search out a thing.
30 The lion, hero among beasts, which turneth aside from the face of no one;
21 She feareth not, for her household, because of the snow, for, all her household, are clothed with crimson:
16 Because haughty are the daughters of Zion, And they walk with neck thrown back, and wanton eyes,—Tripping along as they go, And with their feet, making, a tinkling sound, 17 Therefore will My Lord, smite with leprosy the crown of hair of the daughters of Zion,—And, as for Yahweh, their shame, will he lay bare! 18 In that day, will My Lord remove the finery—of the anklets, and the little suns and the little moons; 19 the pendants and the bracelets and the veils; 20 the chaplets and the armlets and the girdles, and the scent-cases, and the amulets; 21 the rings and the nose-jewels; 22 the robes, and the over-tunics, and the cloaks and the purses; 23 and the mirrors and the linen wraps, and the tiaras and the cloaks. 24 And it shall come to pass—That instead of fragrance, a putrid odour, shall be, And instead of a girdle, an encircling rope, And instead of braided hair, baldness, And instead of a festal robe, a girding of sackcloth, Branding instead of beauty: 25 Thy males, by the sword shall fall,—And, thy mighty men, by the war; 26 And her gates shall mourn and lament,—And forsaken, on the ground, shah she sit.
2 In that day, Shall the Bud of Yahweh, become beautiful and glorious,—And the Fruit of the Land splendid and majestic, To the escaped of Israel.
6 And I will make it a waste;—It shall be neither pruned nor hoed, But there shall come up briars and thorns,—And upon the clouds, will I lay a charge, That they rain thereon no rain.
8 Then heard I the voice of My Lord, saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? And I said—Here am I—send me.
5 [Ye thought] to prepare the table—spread the mat—eat—drink! …Arise ye chieftains anoint the shield!
6 A sword, hath Yahweh—Glutted with blood Sated with fat,—With the blood of well-fed lambs and he-goats, With the fat of the kidneys of rams,—For, a sacrifice, hath Yahweh in Bozrah, Yea a great slaughter in the land of Edom; 7 Then shall buffaloes come down with them, And bullocks with bulls,—So shall their land be soaked with blood, And, their dust, with fat, shall be enriched.
2 When he came up as a sapling before him. And as a root-sprout out of dry ground, He had neither beauty nor majesty,—When we beheld him, there was nothing to behold, that we should desire him;
1 I have let myself be consulted by them who had not asked, I have suffered myself to be found by them who had not sought me,—I have said, Here I am! Here I am! Unto a nation that had not been called by my name,
32 Can, a virgin, forget, her ornaments,—A bride, her girdle? Yet, my people, have forgotten me, days without number.
13 Lo! like clouds, shall he come up, Even as a storm-wind, his chariots, Swifter than eagles, his horses,—Woe to us for we are laid waste!
1 Oh that my head were waters, And mine eyes a fountain of tears,—That I might weep day and night, For the slain of the daughter of my people!
17 Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts, Consider ye diligently and call for the wailing women that they may come,—And unto the wise women, send ye, that they may come; 18 Yea let them make haste, and lift up over us a wailing,—That our eyes, may run down, with tears, And, our eyelashes, stream down with water;— 19 Yea, a voice of wailing, hath been heard out of Zion How are we ruined! We have turned very pale For we have left the land, For they have cast down our habitations. 20 For hear O ye women the word of Yahweh, And let your ear take in the word of his mouth,—And teach your daughters a wail, Yea leach woman—her neighbour, a dirge:— 21 That death Hath come up through our windows, Hath entered our palaces,—Cutting off The boy from the street, The young men from the broadways.
14 Accursed, be the day on which I was born,—The day when my mother bare me, let it not be blessed! 15 Accursed, be the man who carried tidings to my father saying, There is born to thee a man-child! 16 Making him very glad: Yea let that man be—as the cities which Yahweh overthrew and repented not,—And let him hear An outcry in the morning, and A war-shout at broad noon!
1 How could My Lord, in his anger, enshroud in gloom, the daughter of Zion? have cast from the heavens to the earth, the beauty of Israel? and not have remembered his footstool, in the day of his anger?
19 Swifter are our pursuers, than the eagles of the heavens,—Over the mountains, have they come hotly after us, In the wilderness, have they lain in wait for us.
16 Fallen is the crown of our head. Surely woe to us, for we have sinned.
27 Lo! therefore, I have stretched out my hand against thee, And diminished thine allotted portion,— And have delivered thee up unto the desire of them who hate thee The daughters of the Philistines, who are ashamed of thy lewd way.
57 Before thy wickedness was discovered, As now, [thou art] the reproach of the daughters of Syria and all round about her the daughters of the Philistines, —who are despising thee on every side.
13 Upon interest, hath put out. And increase, hath accepted—, And shall he live? He shall not live All these abominations, he hath done, He shall surely be put to death, His blood, upon himself, shall be.
15 Thus, saith My Lord Yahweh, In the day when he descended into hades, I caused a mourning. I covered over him the roaring deep, And restrained the currents thereof And stayed were the mighty waters, So caused I gloom over him unto Lebanon, And all the trees of the field for him were covered with a shroud.
5 The sound of the horn, he heard, but took not warning, His blood, upon himself shall remain,— Whereas had he taken warning, his own soul, he should have delivered.
9 Then shall go forth the dwellers of the cities of Israel and shall make fires of the weapons and burn them, Both buckler and shield, bow and arrows, and handstaff and spear,- And shall make fires of them. seven years; 10 And they shall not take wood out of the field Neither shall they cut down out of the forests,- For of the armour, shall they make fires,- So shall they spoil those who spoiled them And prey on those who preyed on hem, Declareth My Lord. Yahweh.
2 He will bring us to life, after two days,—on the third day, will he raise us up, that we may live before him.
9 Cut off are the meal-offering and the drink-offering, from the house of Yahweh,—In grief are the priests, the attendants on Yahweh:—
13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, turn therefore, unto Yahweh your God,—for, gracious and full of compassion, is he, slow to anger, and abundant in loving- kindness, and will grieve over calamity. 14 Who knoweth, he may turn and grieve,—and leave behind him, a blessing, a meal-offering and a drink-offering, to Yahweh your God?
6 Who are quaffing bowls of wine, and, with the best of oils, anointing themselves,—and are not afflicted for the injury of Joseph:—
10 In Gath, do not tell, in Accho, do not weep,—in Beth-l’aphrah, roll yourselves in dust.
7 So I tended the flock doomed to slaughter, for the sheep-merchants,—and took unto me two staves, the one, I called Grace, and, the other, I called Union, thus I tended the sheep,
10 So I took my staff Grace, and cut it in two,—that I might set aside my covenant which I had solemnised with all the peoples.
44 But, I, say unto you, Be loving your enemies, and praying for them who are persecuting you:
2 For, with what judgment ye judge, shall ye be judged,—and, with what measure ye mete, shall it be measured unto you.
40 For, just as was Jonah in the belly of the sea-monster three days and three nights, so, will be the Son of Man, in the heart of the earth, three days and three nights.
21 From that time, began Jesus Christ to be pointing out to his disciples that he must needs, into Jerusalem, go away, and, many things, suffer, from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain,—and on, the third day, arise.
25 And all the people, answering, said—His blood be upon us and upon our children!
31 And, by chance, a certain priest, was coming down by that road, and, seeing him, passed by, on the opposite side.
22 He saith to him—Out of thy mouth, do I judge thee, O wicked servant! Thou knewest that, I, a harsh man, am,—taking up, what I laid not down, and reaping, what I did not sow;
14 But the apostles Barnabas and Paul, hearing of it, rending asunder their own mantles, sprang forward amidst the multitude, crying aloud,
26 Wherefore I take you to witness, on this very day, that, pure am I from the blood of all;
19 Now we know that, whatsoever things the law saith, to them who are within the law, it speaketh, in order that, every mouth, may be stopped and all the world come, under penal sentence, unto God.
15 Rejoice with them that rejoice, weep with them that weep:
29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is caused to stumble, and, I, am not burning?
3 Whose adorning, let it be—not the outward, of plaiting the hair and wearing golden ornaments, or putting on of apparel, 4 But the hidden character, of the heart,—in the incorruptible [ornament] of the quiet, and meek, spirit, which is, in presence of God, of great price. 5 For, so, at one time, the holy women also, who directed their hope towards God, used to adorn themselves, being in submission unto their own husbands:
8 And, finally, all, being of one mind, having fellow—feeling, attached to the brethren, of tender affection, of lowly mind:
10 Most of all, however, them who go their way, after the flesh, with a coveting of defilement, and who despise, lordship,—daring! willful! before dignitaries, they tremble not, defaming,
9 Lo! I give them of the synagogue of Satan, who are affirming themselves to be, Jews, and are not,—but say what is false,—lo! I will cause them, that they shall have come, and shall bow down before thy feet, and shall get to know that, I, loved thee.
