Numbers 6:1-27

1 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: 2 Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou shalt say unto them,—When any man or woman, would make the special vow of One Separate, by separating himself unto Yahweh, 3 from wine and strong drink, shall he separate himself, neither vinegar of wine nor vinegar of strong drink, shall he drink,—and no liquor of grapes, shall he drink, no grapes fresh or dried, shall he eat. 4 All the days of his separation, of nothing that is made from the grapevine from the seeds even to the skin, shall he eat. 5 All the days of his vow of separation, no razor, shall pass over his head,—until the days are fulfilled for which he shall separate himself to Yahweh hallowed, shall he be, letting the locks of the hair of his head grow long. 6 All the days for which he hath separated himself unto Yahweh to no dead person, shall he go in. 7 Neither for his father nor for his mother nor for his brother nor for his sister, shall he make himself unclean-not even for them, should they die,—because, his separation unto God, is upon his head, 8 All his days of separation hallowed, is he unto Yahweh. 9 But if one that is dying should die by him in a moment suddenly, then shall he count unclean his head of separation,—and shall shave his head, on the day he cleanseth himself, on the seventh day, shall he shave it. 10 And on the eighth day, shall he bring in. two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons,—unto the triest, unto the entrance of the tent of meeting; 11 and the priest shall make, of one a sin—bearer and of one an ascending-sacrifice, and so put a propitiatory-covering over him, for that he sinned in respect of the dead person,—thus shall he hallow his head on that day. 12 Then shall be separate unto Yahweh his days of separation, and shall bring in a he-lamb a year old as a guilt-bearer,—and, the first days, shall be lost because his separation, was made unclean. 13 And, this, is the law of the Separate One, on the day when he fulfilleth his days of separation, he shall be brought in unto the entrance of the tent of meeting: 14 then shall he bring near as his offering unto Yahweh.—one he-lamb a year old, without defect for an ascending-sacrifice, and one ewe-lamb a year old without defect for a sin-bearer,—and one ram, without defect for a peace-offering; 15 and a basket of unleavened cakes—fine meal in round cakes overflowed with oil, and thin cakes of unleavened bread, anointed with oil,—with their meal-offering and their drink-offerings. 16 Then shall the priest bring [them] near before Yahweh,—and offer his sin-bearer and his ascending-sacrifice; 17 and the ram, shall he offer as a peace-offering unto Yahweh, besides the basket of unleavened cakes,—and the priest shall offer the meal-offering thereof and the drink-offering thereof, 18 Then shall the Separate One shave, at the entrance of the tent of meeting, his head of separation,—and take the hair of his head of separation, and put upon the fire, which is under the peace-offering. 19 Then shall the priest take the shoulder far boiling from the ram, and one unleavened round cake from the basket, and one unleavened thin cake,—and place them on the hands, of the Separate One after he hath shaven off his [hair of] separation; 20 and the priest shall wave them as a wave-offering before Yahweh, hallowed, it is for the priest, besides the wave breast, and be-sides the heave leg,—and, afterwards, may the Separate One drink wine. 21 This is the law of One Separate what he shall vow, his offering unto Yahweh with respect to his separation, besides what his hand may obtain: as required by the vow that he shall vow, so, must he do, with respect to the law of his separation. 22 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: 23 Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons saying Thus, shall ye bless the sons of Israel,—saying unto them: 24 Yahweh bless thee, and keep thee: 25 Yahweh cause his face to shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee: 26 Yahweh lift up his face unto thee, and appoint unto thee peace. 27 Thus shall they put my name upon the sons of Israel,—and, I, myself, will bless them.

Matthew 6:1-34

1 [But] take heed, that ye do not, your righteousness, before men, to be gazed at by them,—otherwise at least, reward, have ye none, with your Father who is in the heavens. 2 When, therefore, thou mayest be doing an alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, just as, the hypocrites, do in the synagogues and in the streets—that they may be glorified by men,—Verily, I say unto you, they are getting back their reward. 3 But, thou, when doing an alms, let not, thy left hand, know what thy right hand is doing; 4 that thine alms may be in secret,—and, thy Father, who seeth in secret, will give it back to thee. 5 And, when ye may be praying, ye shall not be as the hypocrites, because they love, in the synagogues, and at the corners of the broad ways, to take their stand and pray, that they may shine before men; Verily, I say unto you, they are getting back their reward. 6 But, thou, when thou wouldest pray, enter into thy closet, and, fastening thy door, pray unto thy Father who is in secret,—and, thy Father who seeth in secret, will reward thee. 7 And, being at prayer, use not vain repetitions, just like the nations,—for they think, that, in their much speaking, they shall be hoard; 8 do not, therefore, make yourselves like them, for [God] your Father knoweth of what things ye have, need, before ye ask him. 9 Thus, therefore pray, ye: Our Father, who art in the heavens,—Hallowed be thy name, 10 Come may thy kingdom,—Accomplished be thy will, as in heaven, also on earth: 11 Our needful bread, give us, this day; 12 And forgive us our debts, as, we also, have forgiven our debtors; 13 And bring us not into temptation, but rescue us from the evil one. 14 For, if ye forgive men their faults, Your Father who is in the heavens, will forgive, even you; 15 But, if ye forgive not men [their faults], neither will your Father forgive, your faults. 16 And, when ye may he fasting, become not ye, as the hypocrites, of sullen countenance,—for they darken their looks, that they may appear, unto men, to be fasting: Verily, I say unto you, they are getting back their reward. 17 But, when, thou, art fasting, anoint thy head, and, thy face, wash,— 18 that thou do not appear, unto men, to be fasting, but to thy Father who is in secret,—and, thy Father who seeth in secret, will reward thee. 19 Be not laying up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where, moth and rust, do tarnish, and where, thieves, dig through and steal; 20 but be laying up or yourselves treasures in heaven, where, neither moth nor rust, doth tarnish, and where, thieves, dig not through nor steal: 21 for, where, thy treasure, is, there, will be, thy heart [also]. 22 The lamp of the body, is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body, shall be, lighted up; 23 But, if thine eye be, evil, thy whole body, shall be, in the dark;—if therefore, the light which is in thee, is, darkness, the darkness, how great! 24 No one, unto two masters, can be in service; for either, the one, he will hate, and, the other,love, or, one, he will hold to, and, the other, despise: Ye cannot be in service, unto God, and, unto Riches. 25 For this cause, I say unto you: Be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat [or what ye shall drink],—or for your body, what ye shall put on: Is not, the life, more than, the food? And, the body, than, the raiment? 26 Observe intently, the birds of the heaven,—that they neither sow, nor reap, nor gather into barns, and yet, your heavenly Father, feedeth, them: Are no, ye, much better than, they? 27 But who from among you, being anxious, can add to his stature one cubit? 28 And, about clothing, why are ye anxious? Consider well the lilies of the field, how they grow,—they toil not neither do they spin; 29 And yet, I say unto you, not even Solomon, in all his glory, was arrayed like, one of these! 30 Now, if the grass of the field—which to-day, is, and, to-morrow, into an oven, is cast—God thus adorneth, not much rather, you, little of faith? 31 Do not then be anxious saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or Wherewithal shall we be arrayed? 32 For, all these things, the nations, seek after,—for your heavenly Father, knoweth, that ye are needing, all these things. 33 But be seeking first, the kingdom and its righteousness,—and, all these things, shall be added unto you. 34 Do not, then, be anxious for the morrow; for the morrow, will be anxious, for itself: Sufficient for the day, is the evil thereof.

9 He that saith he is, in the light, and hateth, his brother, is, in the darkness, until even now! 10 He that loveth his brother, is abiding, in the light, and, cause of stumbling, in him, is there none. 11 Whereas, he that hateth his brother, in the darkness, dwelleth, and in the darkness, walketh; and knoweth not whither he is drifting, because the, darkness, hath blinded his eyes.
