Deuteronomy 12:1-32

THE TORAH ON POSSESSING THE LAND These are the statutes and judgments to guard to work in the land, Yah Veh Elohim of your fathers gives you to possess all the days you live on the soil. 2 In destroying, destroy all the places, wherein the goyim you possess serve their elohim - on the exalted mountains and on the hills and under every green tree: 3 and pull down their sacrifice altars and break their monoliths and burn their asherim with fire; and cut down the sculptiles of their elohim and destroy their names from that place. 4 But work not thus to Yah Veh your Elohim. 5 But to the place Yah Veh your Elohim chooses of all your scions to put his name there, seek and enter his tabernacle: 6 and bring your holocausts and your sacrifices and your tithes and exaltments of your hand and your vows and your voluntaries and the firstlings of your oxen and of your flocks: 7 and there at the face of Yah Veh your Elohim eat and cheer in every spreading of your hand - you and your households, wherein Yah Veh your Elohim blessed you. 8 Work not after all those we work here this day, every man whatever is straight in his own eyes: 9 for you come not yet to the rest and to the inheritance, Yah Veh your Elohim gives you: 10 and pass over Yarden and settle in the land Yah Veh your Elohim has you inherit and he gives you rest from all your enemies all around you, so that you settle confidently; 11 and so be it, the place Yah Veh your Elohim chooses to tabernacle his name, bring all I misvah you - your holocausts and your sacrifices your tithes and the exaltment of your hand and all your choice vows you vowed to Yah Veh: 12 and cheer at the face of Yah Veh your Elohim - you and your sons and your daughters and your servants and your maids and the Leviy within your portals; for which cause he has neither allotment nor inheritance with you. 13 Guard yourself that you not holocaust your holocausts in every place you see: 14 but in the place Yah Veh chooses in one of your scions, there you holocaust your holocausts and there you work all I misvah you. 15 Only, sacrifice and eat flesh in all your portals, - whatever your soul desires according to the blessing Yah Veh your Elohim gives you: the foul and the pure eat thereof, as of the gazelle and as of the hart. 16 Only, eat not the blood; pour it on the earth as water. 17 Eat not within your portals, the tithe of your crop or of your juice or of your oil or the firstlings of your oxen or of your flock; or any of the vows you vowed, or your voluntaries or exaltment of your hand: 18 but eat them at the face of Yah Veh your Elohim in the place Yah Veh your Elohim chooses - you and your son and your daughter and your servant and your maid and the Leviy within your portals: and cheer at the face of Yah Veh your Elohim in all you spread your hands to. 19 Guard to not forsake the Leviy all your days on the soil. 20 When Yah Veh your Elohim widens your border as he worded to you, and you say, I eat flesh, because your soul desires to eat flesh; eat flesh - whatever your soul desires! 21 When the place Yah Veh your Elohim chooses to put his name is too far removed from you, then sacrifice of your oxen and of your flock Yah Veh gives you, as I misvahed you, eat whatever your soul desires within your portals: 22 only, as you eat the gazelle and the hart, thus eat them - the foul and the pure - eat them together. 23 Only, prevail that you not eat the blood: for the blood is the soul; and eat not the soul with the flesh. 24 Eat not! Pour it on the earth as water. 25 Eat not that it well-please you and your sons after you when you work straight in the eyes of Yah Veh. 26 Only, bear your holies and your vows, and go to the place Yah Veh chooses: 27 and work your holocausts - the flesh and the blood on the sacrifice altar of Yah Veh your Elohim: and pour the blood of your sacrifices on the sacrifice altar of Yah Veh your Elohim and eat the flesh. 28 Guard and hear all these words I misvah you that it well-please you and your sons after you eternally, when you work good and straight in the eyes of Yah Veh your Elohim. 29 When Yah Veh your Elohim cuts off the goyim from your face, where you go to possess them and you possess them and settle in their land; 30 guard yourself lest you become snared by following them, after being desolated from your face; and that you enquire not after their elohim, saying, How served these goyim their Elohim? Work I thus likewise? 31 Work not thus to Yah Veh your Elohim: for every abhorrence Yah Veh hates, they worked to their elohim; even burning their sons and their daughters in the fire to their elohim. 32 Whatever word I misvah you, guard to work it: neither add thereto, nor diminish therefrom.

Matthew 5:47

47 And whenever you salute your brothers only, what do you so superabundantly? Do not indeed even the customs agents thus?

Leviticus 18:19-23

19 And approach not a woman to expose her nakedness, as long as she is in exclusion for her foulness. 20 And copulate not to give seed to the woman of your friend; to foul yourself with her. 21 And give not any of your seed to pass through to Molech: profane not the name of your Elohim: I - Yah Veh. 22
Lie not with a male as bedding with a woman: it is abhorrent. 23 Give not yourself to copulate with any animal to foul yourself therewith: and stand not a woman to face an animal to copulate: it is comingling.

2 Kings 23:7

7 and he pulls down the houses of the hallowed whoremongers by the house of Yah Veh, where the women weave housings for the asherah:

Acts 17:16-23

16 But Paulos awaits them at Athens; and his spirit agitates within him when he observes the city being downright idolatrous: 17 so indeed he reasons in the synagogue with the Yah Hudiym and with the venerating persons and daily in the market with those meeting with him. 18 But some philosophers of the Epicureans and of the Stoicks encounter him: and some speak, What wills this spermalogist to word? and some others, He thinks well to be an evangelizer of strange demons - because he evangelizes Yah Shua and the resurrection to them. 19 And they take him and bring him to Areopagus, wording, Can we know this new doctrine whereof you speak? 20 For you bear somewhat strange to our hearing: so we will to know what these will to mean. 21 - for all the Asoians and strangers residing there leisure in none other, than either to word, or to hear somewhat new. 22
And Paulos stands midst Areopagus, and says, Men - Asoians, I observe that in all you are demon-dreaders. 23 For as I passed through and considered your objects of reverence, I found a bamah epigraphed, TO THE UNKNOWN EL - so whom you unknowingly revere, I evangelize to you.

Jeremiah 10:1-5

Hear the word, O house of Yisra El, which Yah Veh words to you: 2 thus says Yah Veh, Neither learn the way of the goyim nor dismay at the signs of the heavens; for the goyim dismay at them: 3 for the statutes of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree from the forest - the work of the hands of the engraver with the ax: 4 they beautify with silver and with gold; they strengthen with nails and with hammers so that it wiggles not: 5 round as the palm tree, but word not: in bearing, they bear, because they pace not. Awe them not, for they vilify not; yes, it is not in them to well-please.

2 Thessalonians 2:9

9 - whose parousia is after the energizing of Satan in all dynamis and signs and lying omens,

Leviticus 26:1-46

Work neither idols nor sculptiles nor raise a monolith; nor give any imagery of stone in your land to prostrate thereto: for I - Yah Veh your Elohim. 2 Guard my shabbaths and awe my holies: I - Yah Veh. 3 If you walk in my statutes and guard and work my misvoth, 4 then I give you downpour in time and the land gives her produce and the trees of the field give their fruit: 5 and your threshing reaches to the crop and the crop reaches to the seeding: and you eat your bread to satiety and settle in your land confidently: 6 and I give shalom in the land; and you lie down and no one trembles you: and I cause the evil live being to shabbathize from the land: that the sword not pass through your land. 7 And you pursue your enemies and they fall by the sword at your face: 8 and five of you pursue a hundred and a hundred of you pursue a myriad; and your enemies fall by the sword at your face. 9 And I turn my face toward you that you bear fruit and abound; and raise my covenant with you: 10 and you eat old store and bring forth the old at the face of the new. 11 And I give my tabernacle among you: and my soul loathes you not: 12 and I walk among you and become to you, Elohim and you become to me, people: 13 I - Yah Veh your Elohim who brought you from the land of Misrayim that you not be their servants; and I break the yoke poles of your yoke and carry you erect. 14
And if you hearken not to me and work not all these misvoth; 15 and if you spurn my statutes or if your soul loathes my judgments; so that you work not all my misvoth to break my covenant 16 - I also work this to you: I visit terror over you - emaciation and the burning ague to finish off the eyes; and moping of soul: and you seed your seed in vain for your enemies to eat. 17 And I give my face against you, that you become smitten at the face of your enemies: that they who hate you subjugate you; and that you flee when none pursues you. 18 And if you yet for all this hearken not to me I add to discipline you seven times for your sins: 19 and I break the pomp of your strength; and I give your heavens as iron and your earth as copper: 20 and your force consumes in vain: neither your land gives her produce nor the trees of the land give their fruits. 21 And if you walk contrary to me and hearken not to me; I add seven strokes on you according to your sins: 22 and I send live beings of the field among you to bereave you and cut your animals and diminish you and desolate your ways. 23 And if by these, you are not disciplined by me, and walk contrary to me, 24 then I also walk contrary to you and smite you yet seven for your sins: 25 and I bring a sword on you to avenge the avenging of my covenant: and when you gather to your cities, I send the pestilence among you; that you become given into the hand of the enemy: 26 and in breaking the rod of your bread, ten women bake your bread in one oven and they restore your bread by weight: and you eat and satiate not. 27 And if for all this, you hearken not to me and walk contrary to me; 28 then I also walk contrary to you in fury; and I - yes, I discipline you seven for your sins: 29 and you eat the flesh of your sons and you eat the flesh of your daughters. 30 And I destroy your bamahs and cut down your sun icons and give your carcases on the carcases of your idols that my soul loathe you: 31 and I give your cities as parched areas and desolate your holies and I scent not your scent of rest: 32 and I desolate the land and desolate your enemies who settle therein: 33 and I scatter you among the goyim and draw a sword after you: and desolate your land and parch your cities. 34 Then the land is pleased in her shabbaths as long as it desolates; with you in the land of your enemies; then the land shabbathizes and is pleased in her shabbaths: 35 as long as it desolates, it shabbathizes; because it shabbathizes not in your shabbaths when you settle there. 36 And on those who survive, I send a timidity into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the voice of a driven leaf pursues them; and they flee as retreating from a sword; and they fall when none pursues: 37 and they falter - man to brother as at the face of a sword when none pursues: and you have no resistance at the face of your enemies: 38 and you destruct among the goyim and the land of your enemies eats you: 39 and those of you who survive pine away in their perversity in the lands of your enemies; and also in the perversities of their fathers they pine away with them. 40
And if they wring hands for their perversity and the perversity of their fathers, and the treason they treason against me and also for walking contrary to me; 41 and that I also, in walking contrary to them bring them into the land of their enemies - if they humble their uncircumcised hearts; and they then be pleased in the punishment of their perversity 42 - then I remember my covenant with Yaaqov and also my covenant with Yischaq and also my covenant with Abraham I remember - and I remember the land. 43 For they forsake the land and are pleased in her shabbaths as she lies desolate without them: and they are pleased in their perversity: because - even because they spurn my judgments and because their soul loathes my statutes. 44 And yes, for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I neither spurn them nor loathe them to finish them off - to break my covenant with them: for I - Yah Veh their Elohim. 45 But I, for their sakes, remember the covenant of their first, whom I brought from the land of Misrayim in the eyes of the goyim, that I become their Elohim: I - Yah Veh. 46 These are the statutes and judgments and torahs Yah Veh gave between him and between the sons of Yisra El in mount Sinay by the hand of Mosheh.

Ezekiel 13:18

18 and say, Thus says Adonay Yah Veh: Ho to them who sew pillows for all the elbow holes of my hands; and work veils on the head of every height to hunt souls; Hunt you the souls of my people? Leave you the souls to live with you?

Acts 8:9-13

9 But some man named Shimon, who previously used sorcery in the same city, who astounded the goyim of Shomeron; wording that he himself is some mega one: 10 whom they all heed, from the least to the mega, wording, This one is the mega dynamis of Elohim. 11 - and they heed him, because he astounded them with magicing for a long time. 12 But when they trust Philippos evangelizing those concerning the sovereigndom of Elohim and the name of Yah Shua Messiah, they are baptized - both men and women: 13 and Shimon himself also trusts: and being baptized, he continues with Philippos; and is astounded, observing the dynamis and mega signs that become.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Or know you not the unjust inherit not the sovereigndom of Elohim? be not seduced: neither whoremongers nor idolaters nor adulterers nor effeminate nor homosexuals 10 nor thieves nor avaricious nor intoxicators nor abusers nor plunderers inherit the sovereigndom of Elohim. 11 And some of you were these: but you are bathed but you are hallowed but you are justified in the name of Adonay Yah Shua and in the Spirit of our Elohim.

Deuteronomy 18:9-12

THE TORAH ON APOSTATIZING When you come to the land Yah Veh your Elohim gives you, learn to not work after the abhorrences of those goyim. 10 lest you find any among you who passes his son or his daughter through the fire or a diviner or a cloudgazer or a prognosticater or a sorcerer 11 or a charmer who charms or an inquirer of a necromancer or a knower or an inquirer of the deathified: 12 for all who work these are an abhorrence to Yah Veh: and because of these abhorrences Yah Veh your Elohim dispossesses them from your face.

Exodus 20:1-26

And Elohim words all these words, saying, 2 I - Yah Veh your Elohim, who brought you from the land of Misrayim, from the house of servants. 3 Have no other elohim above my face. 4 Work not to yourself any sculptile or any similitude of that in the heavens above or that in the earth beneath or that in the water under the earth: 5 neither prostrate yourself to them, nor serve them: for I Yah Veh your Elohim am a jealous El, visiting the perversity of the fathers on the sons to the third and fourth of them who hate me; 6 and working mercy to the thousands who love me and guard my misvoth. 7 Bear not the name of Yah Veh your Elohim in defamation; for Yah Veh exonerates him not who bears his name in defamation. 8 Remember the shabbath day, to hallow it: 9 six days you serve and work all your work: 10 but the seventh day is the shabbath of Yah Veh your Elohim: work no work therein; neither you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your servant, nor your maid, nor your animals, nor your sojourner within your portals: 11 for in six days Yah Veh worked the heavens and earth, the sea and all therein; and rested the seventh day: so Yah Veh blessed the shabbath day and hallowed it. 12 Honor your father and your mother: that your days be prolonged on the soil which Yah Veh your Elohim gives you. 13 Murder not. 14 Adulterize not. 15 Steal not. 16 Answer not a false witness against your friend. 17 Desire not the house of your friend; desire not the woman of your friend; neither his servant, nor his maid, nor his ox, nor his he burro, nor aught that is of your friend. 18 And all the people see voices and the flambeaus and the voice of the shophar and the mountain smoking: and when the people see, they shake and stand afar. 19 And they say to Mosheh, Word with us and we hear: but have not Elohim word with us, lest we die. 20 And Mosheh says to the people, Awe not: for Elohim comes so as to test you and that his awe be in front of your faces so that you sin not. 21 And the people stand afar off and Mosheh draws near to the dripping darkness where Elohim is: 22 and Yah Veh says to Mosheh, Say thus to the sons of Yisra El, You see that I word with you from the heavens. 23 Neither work me elohim of silver nor work yourselves elohim of gold: 24 but work to me a sacrifice altar of soil and sacrifice thereon your holocausts and your shelamim - your flocks and your oxen in all places wherever I memorialize my name I come to you and I bless you: 25 and if you work me a sacrifice altar of stone, build it not of hewn stone: for if you shake your sword on it, you profane it: 26 and ascend not to my sacrifice altar by degrees, so that your nakedness be not exposed thereon.
