1 Peter 5:1-14

I beseech the elders among you - I a co-elder and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah, and also a partaker of the glory to be unveiled. 2 Shepherd the shepherddom of Elohim among you, overseeing - not by compulsion, but voluntarily; not for avarice, but eagerly; 3 not as overlording the inheritance, but being types to the shepherddom: 4 so that when the Arch Shepherd manifests, you receive a wreath of glory - amaranthine. 5 Likewise, younger: subjugate yourselves to the elder. Yes, all subjugate to one another and enrobe with humblemindedness: because Elohim opposes the proud and gives charism to the humble. 6 So humble yourselves under the powerful hand of Elohim, so that he exalts you in season: 7 tossing all your anxiety upon him; because he is concerned about you. 8 Sober! Watch! - because your adversary, Diabolos, as a roaring lion, walks around seeking whom to swallow: 9 whom withstand solid in the trust, knowing that the same sufferings are completed/shalamed in your brotherhood in the cosmos. 10 And the Elohim of all charism, who calls us to his eternal glory in Messiah Yah Shua, after you suffer a little, prepare you, establish, invigorate, foundation you. 11 To him be glory and dominion to the eons of the eons. Amen. 12
Through Silvanus your trustworthy brother, I reckon that I scribed through few words, beseeching and witnessing that this wherein you stand is the true charism of Elohim. 13 The co-select in Babel and Markos my son salute you. 14 Salute one another with a kiss of love. Shalom with all in Messiah Yah Shua. Amen.

Nehemiah 11:19

19 and the porters, Aqqub, Talmon and their brothers who guard the portals, - a hundred seventy-two.

James 5:1-20

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries coming upon you. 2 Your riches putrefy and your garments become motheaten: 3 your gold and silver rust; and their rust becomes a witness against you to consume your flesh as fire. You treasured in the final days. 4 Behold, the hire of the workers who ingathered your regions - whom you cheated, cries out: and the cries of them who harvest enter the ears of Yah Veh Sabaoth. 5 You indulged on the earth and luxuriated; you nourished your hearts as in a day of slaughter; 6 you condemned and murdered the just; and he opposes you not. 7
So be patient, brothers, until the parousia of Adonay. Behold, the cultivator awaits the precious fruit of the earth and has long patience for it until ever he takes the morning and evening rain. 8 You also, be patient; establish your hearts: because the parousia of Adonay approaches. 9 Sigh not against one another, brothers, lest you be condemned: behold, the judge stands at the portal. 10 My brothers, take the prophets, who speak in the name of Yah Veh, for an example of injurious hardship and of patience. 11 Behold, we count them who endure, blessed. You heard of the endurance of Iyob and saw the completion/shalom of Yah Veh; that Adonay is large spleened and compassionate. 12 But preceding all, my brothers, oath not: neither by the heavens, nor by the earth, nor by any other oath: but that your yes be yes; and your no, no; lest you fall into hypocrisy. 13
Is any among you enduring hardship? Pray! Is any cheerful? Psalm! 14 Is any frail among you? Call for the elders of the ecclesia to pray over him; anointing him with olive oil in the name of Adonay: 15 and the vow of the trust saves the wearied and Adonay raises him; and if he does sins, they are forgiven. 16 Confess your backslidings to one another and vow for one another, to be healed. The energized petition of the just is mighty enough. 17 Eli Yah was a human, like-passioned as we; and he prayed a prayer that it rain not: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again and the heavens gave rain and the earth sprouted her fruit. 19 Brothers, whenever any among you wanders from the truth and one restores him; 20 have him know, whoever restores the sinner from his wandering way saves a soul from death and veils a multitude of sins.

1 Timothy 2:1-15

So first of all, I beseech that petitions, prayers, intercessions and eucharists be made for all humanity; 2 for sovereigns and for all being in supremacy: so that we pass through a tranquil and quiet existence in all reverence and veneration. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of Elohim our Saviour; 4 who wills all humanity to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one Elohim and one mediator between Elohim and humanity - the human Messiah Yah Shua; 6 who gave himself a redemption for all the witness in his own time: 7 unto whom I am placed a preacher and an apostle. I word the truth in Messiah and lie not; a doctor of the goyim in trust and truth. 8
So I will that men pray in every place lifting hands of mercy apart from wrath and reasoning. 9 In like manner also that women adorn themselves in cosmic costume with awe and soundmindedness; not in braided hair or gold or pearls or vastly precious garments; 10 but whatever befits women who pre-evangelize Elohim-reverence through good works. 11 Have the woman learn in quietness in all subjection. 12 And I permit a woman neither to doctrinate nor to dominate the man but to be in quietness. 13 For Adam was first molded, then Havvah. 14 And Adam was not deluded; but the woman being deluded became in the transgression: 15 and she is saved through childbearing - whenever they abide in trust and love and holiness with soundmindedness.

Psalms 84:10

10 For a day in your courts is better than a thousand. I choose to be a threshhold waiter in the house of my Elohim, rather than to twirl in the tents of wickedness.

Isaiah 62:6-10

6 I guard to oversee on your walls, O Yeru Shalem, which hush not continually day and night: you who remember Yah Veh, quiet not; 7 and give him no quiet until he establishes and until he sets Yeru Shalem a halal in the earth. 8 Yah Veh oaths by his right and by the arm of his strength, I neither give your crop any more to be food for your enemies; nor the sons of the stranger to drink your juice for which you labored: 9 for they who gather, eat and halal Yah Veh; and they who gather, drink in the courts of my holies. 10 Pass through! Pass through the portals! Face the way of the people! Raise! Raise the highway! Stone the stones! Lift an ensign for the people!
