Genesis 4:1-26

1 And the human knows Eve, his wife, and pregnant is she and is bearing Cain. And saying is she, "I acquire a man, Yahweh!" 2 And proceeding is she to bear his brother Abel. And coming is Abel to be the grazier of a flock, yet Cain becomes a server of the ground. 3 And coming is it, at the end of days, that bringing is Cain, from the fruit of the ground, a present offering to Yahweh. 4 Abel also is bringing, he, moreover, from the firstlings of his flock, and from their fat. And heed is Yahweh giving to Abel and to his present offering, 5 yet to Cain and to his present offering He does not give heed. And hot is Cain's anger exceedingly, and falling is his face. 6 And saying is Yahweh Elohim to Cain, "Why is your anger hot? And why does your face fall? 7 Would you not, should you be doing well, lift it up? And should you not be doing well, at the opening a sin offering is reclining, and for you is its restoration. And you are ruler over it. 8 And saying is Cain to Abel, his brother, "Go will we to the field. And coming is it, at their coming to be in the field, rising is Cain against Abel, his brother, and killing him. 9 And saying is Yahweh Elohim to Cain, "Where is Abel, your brother? "And saying is he, "I do not know. The keeper of my brother am I? 10 And saying is the Elohim, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is crying to me from the ground. 11 And now, cursed are you by the ground, which opens its mouth wide to take your brother's blood from your hand. 12 As you are serving the ground, it will not continue to give its vigor to you. A rover and a wanderer shall you become in the earth. 13 And saying is Cain to Yahweh Elohim, "Too great is my depravity to bear. 14 Behold, drive me do You out today off the surface of the ground, and from Your face shall I be concealed, and become shall I a rover and a wanderer in the earth. And it comes that anyone finding me will kill me. 15 And saying to him is Yahweh Elohim, "Not so. Anyone killing Cain, sevenfold shall it be avenged. "And placing is Yahweh Elohim a sign for Cain, to avoid anyone finding him smiting him. 16 And forth is Cain faring from before Yahweh Elohim, and is dwelling in the land of Nod, east of Eden. 17 And knowing is Cain his wife and she is pregnant and bearing Enoch. And coming is it that he is building a city, and calling is he the name of the city as the name of his son, Enoch. 18 And born to Enoch is Irad, and Irad generates Mehujael, and Mehujael generates Methusael, and Methusael generates Lamech. 19 And Lamech is taking for himself two wives, the one named Adah, and the second named Zillah. 20 And Adah is baring Jabal. He becomes the forefather of the tent dweller and the cattleman. 21 And the name of his brother is Jubal. He becomes the forefather of all who handle the harp and the shepherd's pipe. 22 And Zillah, moreover, she bears Tubalcain, a forger of every tool of copper and iron. And the sister of Tubalcain is Naamah. 23 And saying is Lamech to his wives: "Adah and Zillah, hearken to my voice! Wives of Lamech, give ear to my saying! For a man killed I for my injury, and a boy for my welt. 24 As sevenfold is the avenging of Cain, then seventy and seven is Lamech's. 25 And knowing is Adam Eve, his wife, again. And pregnant is she and bearing a son. And calling is she his name Seth, saying, "For set for me has the Elohim another seed instead of Abel, for Cain kills him. 26 And to Seth, moreover, to him is born a son. And calling is he his name Enosh. Then this one is wounded. Yet he calls on the name of Yahweh Elohim.

Exodus 20:1-26

1 Elohim spoke all these words, saying. 2 I am Yahweh your Elohim Who brought you forth from the land of Egypt, from the house of servants. 3 You shall not come to have other elohim in preference to Me. 4 You shall not make for yourself a carving nor any representation of that in the heavens above or that on the earth beneath, or that in the waters beneath the earth. 5 You shall not bow yourself down to them, nor be made to serve them, for I, Yahweh your Elohim, am a jealous El, visiting the depravity of the fathers on the sons, on the third and on the fourth generation, to those hating Me, 6 yet doing kindness to thousands, to those loving Me and observing My instructions. 7 You shall not take up the name of Yahweh your Elohim for futility, for Yahweh shall not hold innocent him who takes up His name for futility. 8 You are to remember the sabbath day to hallow it. 9 Six days shall you serve and do all your work, 10 yet the seventh day is a sabbath to Yahweh your Elohim. You shall not do any work, you, your son or your daughter, your servant or your maidservant, your bull, your donkey or your beast, or your sojourner who is within your gates. 11 For in six days Yahweh dealt with the heavens and earth, the sea and all that is in them, and He stopped on the seventh day. Therefore, Yahweh blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it. 12 Glorify your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged on the ground which Yahweh your Elohim is giving to you. 13 You shall not murder. 14 You shall not commit adultery. 15 You shall not steal. 16 You shall not answer against your associate with false testimony. 17 You shall not covet the house of your associate. You shall not covet the wife of your associate, his field, his servant or his maidservant, his bull, his donkey or anything which is your associate's. 18 All the people were discerning the voices and the torches and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain asmoke. And the people saw and roved about and stood afar. 19 They said to Moses: Speak you with us that we may hear; yet Elohim must not speak with us lest we die. 20 Then Moses said to the people: Do not fear, for in order to probe you the One, Elohim has come, and in order that the fear of Him should come over your faces, that you may not sin. 21 Then the people stood afar, yet Moses, he came close to the murkiness where the One, Elohim was. 22 Yahweh said to Moses: Thus shall you say to the sons of Israel, You have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you. 23 You shall not make anything beside Me: no elohim of silver nor elohim of gold shall you make for yourselves. 24 An altar of ground soil shall you make for Me, and you will sacrifice on it your ascent offerings and your peace offerings, your flock and your herd. In every place where I shall record My name I shall come to you and will bless you. 25 And if you shall make an altar of stones for Me you shall not build it with them trimmed; in case you have swung your sword against it, then you have profaned it. 26 And you shall not ascent on My altar by stairs so that your nakedness be not exposed on it.

Leviticus 26:1-46

1 You shall not make forbidden idols for yourselves, nor set up carvings and monuments for yourselves, nor put a stone picture in your land to bow yourself down before it, for I, Yahweh, am your Elohim. 2 Instead My sabbaths shall you observe, and My sanctuary shall you fear:I am Yahweh. 3 If you walk by My statutes and observe My instructions and keep them, 4 then I will give your downpours in their season, and the land will give its crop, and the tree of the field shall give its fruit. 5 Your threshing will overtake the vintage, and the vintage, it shall overtake the sowing; you will eat your bread to satisfaction and dwell in trust in your land. 6 I will give peace in the land, and you will lie down with no one making you tremble; I will eradicate the vicious animal from the land, and no sword shall pass through your land. 7 You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall before you by the sword;" 8 five of you will pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you shall pursue a myriad, and your enemies will fall before you by the sword. 9 I will countenance you, make you fruitful, increase you and confirm My covenant with you. 10 You will eat stored stores and bring forth the stores in view of the new. 11 I will put My tabernacle in your midst, and My soul shall not loathe you. 12 I will walk about in your midst and will be your Elohim and you, you shall be My people. 13 I, Yahweh, am your Elohim Who brought you forth from the land of Egypt, from being servants to them. I have broken the slider bars of your yoke and enabled you to walk upraised. 14 Yet if you neither hearken to Me nor observe all these instructions, 15 and if you reject My statutes, and if your soul loathes My judgments so as not to observe all My instructions, to cause you to annul My covenant, 16 indeed, I Myself shall do this to you:I will visit panic upon you, attenuation and fever, making the eyesight vanish and causing the soul to pine; and you will sow your seed for naught, for your enemies will eat it. 17 I will set My face against you, and you will be struck down before your enemies; those hating you will hold sway over you, and you will flee even when there is no one pursuing you. 18 And if, after these things, you should not hearken to Me, then I will continue to discipline you sevenfold for your sins. 19 I will break the pomp of your strength and make your heavens like iron and your land like copper. 20 Your vigor will be spent for naught, and your land shall not give its crop, and the tree of the field shall not give its fruit. 21 If you go contrary to Me and are not willing to hearken to Me, then I will add smitings to you sevenfold according to your sins. 22 I will send the animal of the field against you, and it will bereave you, cut off your domestic beasts and so decrease you that your roads will be desolated. 23 If by these you should not be disciplined for Me and go contrary to Me, 24 then I will, indeed, go contrary to you, and I Myself will even smite you sevenfold for your sins. 25 I will bring the sword on you avenging the vengeance of the covenant. When you will be gathered into your cities then I will send the plague into your midst, and you will be given into the hand of the enemy. 26 When I break the stock of bread for you then ten women will bake your bread in one stove and return your bread by weight so that you will eat and not be satisfied. 27 If by this you should not hearken to Me and go contrary to Me, 28 then I will go contrary to you in fury. And I Myself, indeed, will discipline you sevenfold for your sins. 29 You will eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall you eat. 30 I will exterminate your fane heights, cut down your incense stands and bestow your corpses upon the corpses of your idol clods; thus My soul will loathe you. 31 I will turn your cities into a desert and make your sanctuary desolate; I shall not smell your fragrant odor. 32 I will make the land so desolate, that your enemies, the ones dwelling in it, will be dejected over it. 33 And you I shall winnow among the nations, and I will unsheathe a sword after you so that your land will become a desolation and your cities become a desert. 34 Then the land shall accept its sabbaths all the days of its desolation when you are in the land of your enemies. Then the land shall pause for a sabbath and cause its missing sabbaths to be accepted. 35 All the days of its desolation it shall pause for a sabbath, which days it did not pause in your sabbath years when you dwelt on it. 36 As for the remainder among you, I will also bring timidity into their heart in the lands of their enemies so that the sound of a leaf being whisked away will pursue them, and they will flee as if in flight from the sword; they will fall even when there is no one pursuing. 37 They will stumble, a man over his brother, as though in view of the sword when there is no pursuer, and you shall come to have no standing space before your enemies. 38 You will perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies will devour you. 39 The remainder among you shall be putrid over their depravity in the lands of your enemies, and also over the depravities of their fathers with them shall they be putrid. 40 If they will confess their depravity and the depravity of their fathers in their offense (when they had offended Me and, indeed, when they had gone contrary to M. 41 so that I Myself also went contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies), if then their uncircumcised heart should submit, and if then they should accept their depravity, 42 then I will remember My covenant with Jacob and also My covenant with Isaac; also My covenant with Abraham shall I remember, and the land shall I remember. 43 Yet the land, it shall be forsaken of them and shall accept its sabbath years while it is desolate without them, and they themselves shall accept their depravity because, yes because they had rejected My judgments and their soul had loathed My statutes. 44 Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies I will not reject them nor loathe them so as to finish them, to annul My covenant with them, for I, Yahweh, am their Elohim. 45 For their benefit I will remember the covenant with the former ones whom I brought forth from the land of Egypt before the eyes of the nations to be their Elohim; I am Yahweh. 46 These are the statutes, the judgments and the laws which Yahweh put between Him and the sons of Israel on Mount Sinai by means of Moses.

Judges 5:8

8 He chooses new elohims, Then war [is] at the gates! A shield is not seen--and a spear Among forty thousand in Israel.

Deuteronomy 28:1-68

1 It will come to be if you should hearken, yea hearken to the voice of Yahweh your Elohim, to observe and to keep all His instructions which I am enjoining on you today, that Yahweh your Elohim will give you supremacy over all the nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings will come on you and overtake you in case you should hearken to the voice of Yahweh your Elohim. 3 Blessed be you in the city, and blessed be you in the field. 4 Blessed be the fruit of your belly, the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your beast, the calving of your domestic animals and the lambing of your flock. 5 Blessed be your basket and your kneading-trough. 6 Blessed be you in your coming in, and blessed be you in your going forth. 7 Yahweh shall make your enemies who are rising against you to be struck down before you. By a single road shall they come forth to you, and by seven roads shall they flee before you. 8 Yahweh shall instruct the blessing to be with you in your granaries and in every undertaking of your hand, and He will bless you in the land that Yahweh your Elohim is giving to you. 9 Yahweh shall raise you as a people holy to Himself, just as He had sworn to you, in case you should observe the instructions of Yahweh your Elohim, and walk in His ways, 10 so that all the peoples of the earth will see that the name of Yahweh is proclaimed over you, and they will fear you. 11 Then through the fruit of your belly, the fruit of your domestic beast and the fruit of your ground, Yahweh will give you surplus in goods on the ground about which Yahweh had sworn to your fathers to give to you. 12 Yahweh shall open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless every work of your hand. You will obligate many nations, yet you shall not borrow. 13 So Yahweh will make you to be the head and not the tail, and you will surely be above, and you shall not be below, in case you should hearken to the instructions of Yahweh your Elohim that I am enjoining on you today, to observe and to obey. 14 You shall not withdraw from any of the words which I am instructing you today, neither to the right nor left, to go after other elohim to serve them. 15 It will come to be if you do not hearken to the voice of Yahweh your Elohim to observe and to do all His instructions and His statutes that I am enjoining on you today, that all these maledictions will come on you and overtake you. 16 Cursed be you in the city, and cursed be you in the field. 17 Cursed be your basket and your kneading-trough. 18 Cursed be the fruit of your belly, the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your beast, the calving of your domestic animals and the lambing of your flock. 19 Cursed be you in your coming in, and cursed be you in your going forth. 20 Yahweh shall send the curse, the discomfiture and the rebuke on you in every undertaking of your hand that you shall do, until you are exterminated and you perish quickly, in view of the evil of your actions in which you have forsaken Me. 21 Yahweh shall cause the plague to cling to you until He finishes you off the ground where you are entering to tenant it. 22 Yahweh shall smite you with attenuation, with fever and inflammation, with hot heat and drought, with blasting and mildew, and they will pursue you until you perish. 23 Your heavens that are over your head will come to be as copper, and the earth that is beneath you as iron. 24 Yahweh shall make the rain of your land to be dust and soil-drifts; from the heavens it shall descend on you until you are exterminated. 25 Yahweh shall make you to be struck down before your enemies. By a single road shall you go forth to them, and by seven roads shall you flee before them. So you will become an object of commotion to all the kingdoms of the earth. 26 Your carcass will become food for every flyer of the heavens and for the beast of the earth, and there will be no one causing them to tremble. 27 Yahweh shall smite you with the boil of Egypt, with piles, with eczema and with the itch, from which you cannot be healed. 28 Yahweh shall smite you with madness, with blindness and with derangement of heart;" 29 and you will come to be groping at noon just as the blind one gropes in the gloom, and you shall not prosper in your ways and will only become extorted and pillaged all the days, and there will be no saviour. 30 A wife shall you betroth, yet another man shall ravish her. A house shall you build, yet you shall not dwell in it. A vineyard shall you plant, yet you shall not take it for profane use. 31 Your bull shall be slaughtered before your eyes, yet you shall not eat of it. Your donkey shall be snatched from before you, yet it shall not return to you. Your flock shall be given to your enemies, yet there will be no saviour for you. 32 Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, and your eyes shall be staring and wasting away for them all the day, yet there will be nothing at the disposal of your hand. 33 A people you do not know shall devour the fruit of your ground and all your labor, and you will surely be extorted and bruised all the days, 34 so that you will become mad because of the sight of your eyes that you shall see. 35 Yahweh shall smite you with an evil boil on both the knees and on both the legs, of which you cannot be healed, from the sole of your foot and unto your scalp. 36 Yahweh shall conduct you and your king, whom you shall set up over you, to a nation whom you have not known, neither you nor your fathers, and you will serve there other elohim of wood and stone. 37 You will become an object of astonishment, a proverb and a byword among all the peoples where Yahweh shall lead you. 38 Much seed shall you bring forth to the field, yet little shall you gather, for the locust shall eat it up. 39 You shall plant vineyards, and you will service them, yet you shall neither drink the wine, nor shall you hoard it, for the worm shall devour it. 40 You shall come to have olives in all your territory, yet you shall not rub yourself with oil because your olives shall drop off. 41 You shall generate sons and daughters, yet they shall not become yours, for they shall go into captivity. 42 The cicada shall make all your trees and the fruit of your ground destitute. 43 The sojourner who is among you shall ascend over you upward and upward, yet you shall descend downward and downward. 44 He shall obligate you, yet you shall not obligate him. He shall become the head, and you shall become the tail. 45 All the maledictions will come on you, and they will pursue you and overtake you until you are exterminated, for you would not hearken to the voice of Yahweh your Elohim to observe His instructions and His statutes that He enjoined on you. 46 They will be a sign and a miracle against you and your seed until the eon. 47 Inasmuch as you would not serve Yahweh your Elohim with rejoicing and with goodness of heart over the abundance of everything, 48 then you will serve your enemies whom Yahweh shall send forth against you, in famine and in thirst, in nakedness and in lack of everything. He will put an iron yoke on your neck until He has exterminated you. 49 Yahweh shall lift up against you a nation from afar, from the end of the earth, just as the vulture swoops down, a nation whose tongue you have not heard, 50 a nation strong of face who neither lifts the face of the old one with partiality nor is gracious to the youth. 51 It will devour the fruit of your beast and the fruit of your ground until you are exterminated, a nation who shall not let grain, grape juice or clarified oil, the calving of your domestic animals or the lambing of your flock remain for you, until it destroys you. 52 It will lay siege against you in all your gates until your lofty and defended walls in which you will be trusting come down in all your land; and he will lay siege against you in all your gates in all your land that Yahweh your Elohim will have given to you. 53 Then you will eat the fruit of your own belly, the flesh of your sons and your daughters whom Yahweh your Elohim will have given to you, in the siege and in the constraint with which your enemy shall constrain you. 54 The tender-hearted man among you and the one very fastidious, his eye shall be evil toward his brother and toward the wife of his bosom and toward the rest of his sons whom he shall have left, 55 so as to keep from giving to one of them the flesh of his sons that he is eating because nothing at all remains for him in the siege and in the constraint with which your enemy shall constrain you in all your gates. 56 The tender-hearted woman among you, and the fastidious one, who would not try to put the sole of her foot on the earth because of fastidiousness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom and toward her son and toward her daughter, 57 even for her afterbirth coming forth from between her feet, even for her sons whom she is bearing, for she shall eat them for lack of everything, in concealment during the siege and during the constraint with which your enemy shall constrain you in your gates. 58 Should you not observe to obey all the words of this law, the ones written in this scroll, to fear the name of this glorified and fear-inspiring One, Yahweh your Elohim, 59 then Yahweh will make your smitings and the smitings of your seed extraordinary:smitings that are great and constant, and illnesses that are bad and constant. 60 Thus He will bring back to you every disease of Egypt from the presence of which you shrank away, and they will cling to you. 61 Moreover, every illness and every smiting that is not written in the scroll of this law, Yahweh shall bring them up on you until you are exterminated. 62 Thus you will remain few in adult males, whereas you would have become as the stars of the heavens for multitude, for you did not hearken to the voice of Yahweh your Elohim. 63 So it will come to be, just as Yahweh was elated over you to bring you good and to let you increase, so Yahweh shall be elated over you to destroy you and to exterminate you, so that you will be swept away off the ground where you are entering to tenant it. 64 And Yahweh will scatter you among all the peoples from one end of the earth unto the other end of the earth. There you will serve other elohim, those of wood and stone which you have not known, neither you nor your fathers. 65 And among those nations you shall neither find respite, nor shall there be a resting place for the sole of your foot, and Yahweh will give to you there a disturbed heart, a failure of the eyes and pining of the soul. 66 Then your lives will come to be hung in suspense in front of you. You will be afraid by night and by day, and you shall not put trust in your lives. 67 In the morning you shall say:O that it were evening! And in the evening you shall say:O that it were morning! because of the awe of your heart with which you shall be afraid and because of the sight of your eyes which you shall see. 68 Then Yahweh will bring you back complaining to Egypt by the way of which I said to you:You should not again see it further. There you will put yourselves up for sale to your enemies as servants and as maids, yet there will be no buyer.

Deuteronomy 28:47-48

47 Inasmuch as you would not serve Yahweh your Elohim with rejoicing and with goodness of heart over the abundance of everything, 48 then you will serve your enemies whom Yahweh shall send forth against you, in famine and in thirst, in nakedness and in lack of everything. He will put an iron yoke on your neck until He has exterminated you.

2 Chronicles 17:1-19

1 And Jehoshaphat his son reigns in his stead, and he strengthens himself against Israel, 2 and puts a force in all the fenced cities of Judah, and puts garrisons in the land of Judah, and in the cities of Ephraim that Asa his father had captured. 3 And Yahweh is with Jehoshaphat, for he has walked in the first ways of David his father, and has not sought to Baalim, 4 for to the Elohim of his father he has sought, and in His commands he has walked, and not according to the work of Israel. 5 And Yahweh does establish the kingdom in his hand, and all Judah give a present to Jehoshaphat, and he has riches and honor in abundance, 6 and his heart is high in the ways of Yahweh, and again he has turned aside the high places and the shrines out of Judah. 7 And in the third year of his reign he has sent for his heads, for Ben-Hail, and for Obadiah, and for Zechariah, and for Nethaneel, and for Michaiah, to teach in cities of Judah, 8 and with them the Levites, Shemaiah, and Nethaniah, and Zebadiah, and Asahel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehonathan, and Adonijah, and Tobijath, and Tob-Adonijah, the Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, the priests. 9 And they teach in Judah, and with them [is] the Book of the Law of Yahweh, and they go round about into all cities of Judah, and teach among the people. 10 And here is a fear of Yahweh on all kingdoms of the lands that [are] round about Judah, and they have not fought with Jehoshaphat;" 11 and of the Philistines they are bringing in to Jehoshaphat a present, and tribute silver; also, the Arabians are bringing to him a flock, rams seven thousand an seven hundred, and he-goats seven thousand and seven hundred. 12 And Jehoshaphat is going on and becoming very great, and he builds in Judah palaces and cities of store, 13 and he has much work in cities of Judah; and men of war, mighty of valor, [are] in Jerusalem. 14 And these [are] their numbers, for the house of their fathers:Of Judah, heads of thousands, Adnah the head, and with him mighty ones of valor, three hundred chiefs. 15 And at his hand [is] Jehohanan the head, and with him two hundred and eighty chiefs. 16 And at his hand [is] Amasiah son of Zichri, who is willingly offering himself to Yahweh, and with him two hundred chiefs, mighty of valor. 17 And of Benjamin:mighty of valor, Eliada, and with him, armed with bow and shield, two hundred chiefs. 18 And at his hand [is] Jehozabad, and with him a hundred and eighty chiefs, armed ones of the host. 19 These [are] those serving the king, apart from those whom the king put in the cities of fortress, in all Judah.

Psalms 46:1

1 {For the Sons of Korah{ {Concerning the Eons{ {A Song{ Elohim is our Refuge and Strength, A very providing Help in distresses."

Proverbs 25:26

26 A fouled spring and a corrupted fountain, Such is a righteous man who slips away before the wicked person."

Matthew 4:1-25

1 1Then Jesus was led up into the wilderness by the spirit to be tried by the Adversary. 2 1And, fasting forty days and forty nights, subsequently He hungers. 3 1And, approaching, the trier said to Him, "If you are God's Son, say that these stones may be becoming 0 cakes of \b bread." 4 1Yet He, answering, said, "It is written, 'Not on bread alone shall man be living, but on every declaration going out through 0 the \b mouth of God.'" 5 1Then the Adversary is taking Him along into the holy city, and stands Him on the wing of the sanctuary. 6 1And he is saying to Him. "If you are God's Son, cast yourself down, for it is written that
'His messengers shall be directed concerning Thee'
and
'On 0 their \b hands shall they be lifting Thee,
Lest at some time Thou shouldst be dashing Thy foot against
a stone.'"
7 1Jesus averred to him, "Again it is written, 'You shall not be putting 0 on \b trial the Lord your God.'" 8 1Again the Adversary takes Him along into 0 a \b very high mountain, and is showing Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 1And he said to Him, "All these to you will I be giving, if ever, falling 0 down, \b you should be worshiping me." 10 1Then Jesus is saying to him, "Go away, Satan, for it is written,
0 The \b Lord your God shall you be worshiping,
And to Him only shall you be
offering divine service."
11 1Then the Adversary is leaving Him. And lo! messengers approached and waited on Him. 12 1Now, hearing that John was given up, He retires into Galilee, 13 1and, leaving Nazareth, coming, He dwells in Capernaum, 0 which is \b beside the sea in the boundaries of Zebulon and Naphtali, 14 1that 0 that \b may be fulfilled which is declared through Isaiah the prophet, saying, 15 { The land of Zebulon and the land of Naphtali,
The sea road the other side of the Jordan, Galilee of the nations-} 16 1 The people sitting in darkness perceived 0 a \b great light,
And to
those sitting in the province and shadow of death, light arises for them.
17 1Thenceforth begins Jesus to be heralding and saying, "Repent! for near is the kingdom of the heavens!" 18 1Now, walking beside the sea of Galilee, He perceived two brothers, Simon, termed Peter, and Andrew, his brother, casting 0 a \b purse net into the sea, for they were fishers. 19 1And He is saying to them, "Hither! After Me, and I will be making you fishers of men!" 20 1Now immediately leaving the nets, they follow Him. 21 1And, advancing thence, He perceived two others, brothers, James of Zebedee and John, his brother, in the ship with Zebedee, their father, adjusting their nets. And He calls them. 22 1Now, immediately leaving the ship and their father, they follow Him. 23 1And Jesus led 0 them \b about in the whole of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and heralding the evangel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every debility among the people. 24 1And forth came the tidings of Him into the whole 0 of \b Syria. And they bring to Him all who have an illness, those with various diseases and pressing torments, also demoniacs and epileptics and paralytics, and He cures them. 25 1And 0 there \b follow Him vast throngs from Galilee and the Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judea and the other side of the Jordan.

Exodus 22:1-31

1 When a man steals a bull or a flockling and slaughters it or sells it, five oxen shall he repay for the bull and four small cattle for the flockling. 2 (If the thief is found while burrowing and is smitten so that he dies, there is no blood-guilt because of him. 3 But if the sun has risen on him there is blood-guilt because of him.) He shall repay, yea repay; if he has nothing then he will be sold for his theft. 4 If the theft is found, yea found alive in his hand, whether bull or donkey or flockling, he shall only repay double. 5 When a man causes a field or a vineyard to be grazed down, and he lets his livestock go loose, so that it grazes down another's field, then from the best of his field and the best of his vineyard shall he repay. 6 When fire goes forth and it finds thorns, and the shock or the raised grain or the whole field is devoured, the one causing the consuming fire to consume shall repay, yea repay. 7 When a man gives to his associate silver or articles to keep, and they are stolen from the man's house, if the thief is found he shall repay double. 8 If the thief is not found then the possessor of the house will be brought near to the elohim to show whether or not he has put forth his hand on the work of his associate. 9 In every manner of transgression over a bull, over a donkey, over a flockling, over raiment or over every lost thing which one says that this is it, unto the elohim shall come the word of the two of them. Whom the elohim shall condemn, he shall repay double to his associate. 10 When a man gives to his associate a donkey or a bull or a flockling or any beast to keep, and it dies or is broken or is captured without anyone seeing it, 11 the oath of Yahweh shall come to be between them both to show whether or not he has put forth his hand on the property of his associate; then its possessor will take it, and he shall not repay. 12 But if it is stolen, yea stolen, from him, he shall repay its possessor. 13 If it is torn to pieces, yea torn to pieces, he shall bring the thing torn to pieces, he shall bring the thing torn to pieces as testimony, and he shall not repay. 14 When a man asks something from his associate, and it is broken or dies when its possessor is not with it, he shall repay, yea repay. 15 If its possessor was with it, he shall not repay. If it was hired it came for its hire. 16 In case a man entices a virgin who is not betrothed and lies with her he shall pay, yea pay her bride-price as a wife for himself. 17 If her father refuses, yea refuses to give her to him, he shall weigh out silver according to the bride-price for virgins. 18 You shall not let an enchantress live. 19 Anyone lying with a beast shall be put to death, yea death. 20 Anyone sacrificing to any elohim is doomed, unless it be to Yahweh, to Him alone. 21 As for the sojourner, you shall not tyrannize nor oppress him, for you came to be sojourners in the land of Egypt. 22 Any widow or orphan you shall not humiliate. 23 If you humiliate, yea humiliate him, in case he should cry, yea cry to Me, I shall hear, yea hear his cry, 24 and My anger will grow hot, and I will kill you with the sword, and your wives will become widows and your sons orphans. 25 If you obligate My people, the humble with you, with silver, you shall not be as a moneylender to him; you shall not impose interest on him. 26 If you take in pledge, yea in pledge the raiment of your associate, previous to sunset you shall restore it to him, 27 for it is his only covering. It is his garment for his skin: wherein shall he lie? When it comes to be that he is crying to Me, then I will hear, for I am gracious. 28 You shall not maledict the elohim, and a prince among your people you shall not curse. 29 You shall not delay to offer from your fullness and your fruit juice. The firstborn of your sons shall you give to Me. 30 So shall you do with your bull, with your flock and your donkey. Seven days it shall be with its mother; on the eighth day shall you give it to Me. 31 You shall come to be holy men for Me; so you shall not eat flesh torn to pieces in the field; you shall fling it to the dog.

Matthew 5:1-48

1 1Now, perceiving the throngs, He ascended into the mountain. And, at His being seated, His disciples came to Him. 2 1And opening His mouth, He taught them, saying, 3 1"Happy, in spirit, are the poor, for theirs is the kingdom of the heavens. 4 1"Happy are those who mourn now, for they shall be consoled. 5 1"Happy are the meek, for they shall be enjoying the allotment of the land. 6 1"Happy are those who are hungering and thirsting for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. 7 1"Happy are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy. 8 1"Happy are the clean in heart, for they shall see God. 9 1"Happy are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 10 1"Happy are those persecuted on account of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of the heavens. 11 1"Happy are you whenever they should be reproaching and persecuting you and, falsifying, saying every wicked thing against you, on my account. 12 1Rejoice and exult, for your wages are vast in the heavens. For thus they persecute the prophets before you. 13 1You are the salt of the earth. Now, if the salt should be made insipid, with what will it be salted? For nothing does it still avail except to be cast outside, to be trampled by men. 14 1You are the light of the world. A city located upon a mountain can not be hid. 15 1Neither are they burning a lamp and placing it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it is shining to all those in the house. 16 1Thus let shine your light in front of men, so that they may perceive your ideal acts and should glorify your Father Who is in the heavens. 17 1You should not infer that I came to demolish the law or the prophets. I came not to demolish, but to fulfill. 18 1For verily, I am saying to you, Till heaven and earth should be passing by, one iota or one serif may by no means be passing by from the law till all should be occurring. 19 1Whosoever, then, should be annulling one of the least of these precepts, and should be teaching men thus, the least in the kingdom of the heavens shall he be called. Yet whoever should be doing and teaching them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of the heavens. 20 1For I am saying to you that, if ever your righteousness should not be superabounding more than that of the scribes and Pharisees, by no means may you be entering into the kingdom of the heavens. 21 1You hear that it was declared to the ancients, 'You shall not murder.' Yet whoever should be murdering shall be liable to the judging 22 1Yet I am saying to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be liable to the judging. Yet whoever may be saying to his brother, 'Raka!' shall be liable to the Sanhedrin. Yet whoever may be saying, 'Stupid!' shall be liable to the Gehenna of fire. 23 1If, then, you should be offering your approach present on the altar, and there you should be reminded that your brother has anything against you, 24 1leave your approach present there, in front of the altar, and go away. First be placated toward your brother, and then, coming, be offering your approach present. 25 1You be humoring your plaintiff quickly while you are with him on the way, lest at some time the plaintiff may be giving you up to the judge, and the judge to the deputy, and you should be cast into jail. 26 1Verily I am saying to you, By no means may you be coming out thence till you should be paying the last quadrans. 27 1"You hear that it was declared, 'You shall not be committing adultery. 28 1Yet I am saying to you that every man looking at a woman to lust for her already commits adultery with her in his heart. 29 1Now, if your right eye is snaring you, wrench it out and cast it from you, for it is expedient for you that one of your members should perish and not your whole body be cast into Gehenna. 30 1And if your right hand is snaring you, strike it off and cast it from you, for it is expedient for you that one of your members should perish and not your whole body pass away into Gehenna." 31 1"Now it was declared, Whoever should be dismissing his wife, let him be giving her a divorce. 32 1Yet I am saying to you that everyone dismissing his wife (outside of a case of prostitution) is making her commit adultery, and whosoever should be marrying her who has been dismissed is committing adultery. 33 1"Again, you hear that it was declared to the ancients, You shall not be perjuring, yet you shall be paying to the Lord your oaths. 34 1Yet I am saying to you absolutely not to swear, neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 1nor by the earth, for it is a footstool for His feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King; 36 1nor by your head should you be swearing, for you are not able to make one hair white or black. 37 1Yet let your word be 'Yes, Yes,' 'No, No.' Now what is in excess of these is of the wicked one. 38 1"You hear that it was declared, ' An eye for an eye,' and 'A tooth for a tooth.' 39 1Yet I am saying to you not to withstand a wicked person, but anyone who slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 1And he who wants to sue you and obtain your tunic, leave him your cloak also. 41 1And anyone who conscripts you one mile, go with him two. 42 1To him who requests you, give; and from him who wants to borrow from you, you may not turn. 43 1"You hear that it was declared, 'You shall be loving your associate' and you shall be hating your enemy. 44 1Yet I am saying to you, Love your enemies, and pray for those who are persecuting you, 45 1so that you may become sons of your Father Who is in the heavens, for He causes His sun to rise on the wicked and the good, and makes it rain on the just and the unjust. 46 1For if ever you should love those who are loving you, what wages have you? Are not the tribute collectors also doing the same? 47 1And if ever you should greet your brothers only, what are you doing that is excessive? Are not those of the nations also doing the same? 48 1You, then, shall be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Matthew 5:38-39

38 1"You hear that it was declared, ' An eye for an eye,' and 'A tooth for a tooth.' 39 1Yet I am saying to you not to withstand a wicked person, but anyone who slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.

Matthew 26:52-54

52 Then Jesus is saying to him, "Turn away your sword into its place, for all those taking the sword, by the sword shall perish." 53 Or are you supposing that I am not able to entreat My Father, and at present He will station by My side more than twelve legions of messengers? 54 How, then, may the scriptures be fulfilled, seeing that thus it must occur?

Luke 22:36

36 Yet He said to them, "But now, he who has a purse let him pick it up, likewise a beggar's bag also; and he who has none, let him sell his cloak and buy a sword."

Romans 13:4

4 For it is God's servant for your good. Now if you should be doing evil, fear, for not feignedly is it wearing the sword. For it is God's servant, an avenger for indignation to him who is committing evil."

1 Timothy 5:8

8 Now if anyone is not providing for his own, and especially his family, he has disowned the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever."

Exodus 22:2-3

2 (If the thief is found while burrowing and is smitten so that he dies, there is no blood-guilt because of him. 3 But if the sun has risen on him there is blood-guilt because of him.) He shall repay, yea repay; if he has nothing then he will be sold for his theft.
