Deuteronomy 13:1-18

1 When there shall arise in thy midst—a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams,—and he shall give unto thee a sign or a wonder; 2 and the sign or the wonder shall come in, whereof he spake unto thee, saying,—Let us go after other gods, which ye know not and let us serve them 3 thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or unto that dreamer of dreams,—for Yahweh your God, is putting you to the proof, to know whether ye do love Yahweh your God, with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 After Yahweh your God, shall ye walk And him, shall ye revere,—And his commandments, shall ye observe. And unto his voice, shall ye hearken, And him, shall ye serve And unto him, shall ye cleave. 5 And that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death because he hath spoken revolt against Yahweh your God,—who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt and redeemed thee out of the house of servants, to seduce thee out of the way wherein Yahweh shy God hath commanded thee to walk,—so shalt thou consume the wicked thing out of thy midst. 6 When thy brother—son of thine own mother or thine own son or thine own daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend who is as thine own soul, shall entice thee secretly, saying,—Let us go and serve other gods, whom thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; 7 of the gods of the peoples who are round about you, who are near unto thee, or who are far off from thee,—from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth, 8 thou shalt not consent unto him, neither shalt thou hearken unto him,—neither shall thine eye look with pity upon him, neither shalt thou spare—neither shalt thou conceal him; 9 but thou shalt slay, him, thine own hand, shall be on him first, to put him to death,—and the hand of all the people afterwards. 10 And thou shalt stone him with stones that he die,—for he hath sought to seduce thee from Yahweh thy God, who brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of servants. 11 And, all Israel, shall hear and fear,—and shall not again do according to this wickedness in thy midst. 12 When thou shalt hear—in one of thy cities which Yahweh thy God is giving unto thee to dwell there—saying: 13 There have gone forth men sons of the Abandoned One, out of thy midst, and have seduced the inhabitants of their city, saying,—Let us go, and serve other gods which ye have not known; 14 and thou shalt enquire, and search out, and ask diligently,—and lo! true—certain, is the thing, this abomination, hath been done, in thy midst, 15 then shalt thou smite, the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, devoting it to destruction, and all that is therein and the cattle thereof: with the edge of the sword,— 16 and all the spoil thereof, shalt thou gather together into the midst of the broad way thereof, and shalt consume with fire the city and all the spoil thereof every whirl unto Yahweh thy God,—and it shall be a heap unto times age-abiding, it shall be built no more. 17 So shall there not cleave to thy hand aught of the devoted thing,—that Yahweh may turn away, from the glow of his anger and grant thee compassion and have compassion upon thee and multiply thee, as he sware unto thy fathers; 18 so long as thou shalt hearken unto the voice of Yahweh thy God, to keep all his commandments, which I am commanding thee to-day,—to do what is right in the eyes of Yahweh thy God.

Matthew 28:18-20

18 And Jesus, coming near, spake unto them, saying—All authority, in heaven and on earth, hath been given unto me; 19 Go ye, therefore, and disciple all the nations, Immersing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,— 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I myself have commanded you, And lo! I, am, with you, all the days, until the conclusion of the age.

1 Timothy 2:1-15

1 I exhort, therefore, first of all, that there be made—supplications, prayers, intercessions, thankgivings, in behalf of all men, 2 In behalf of kings, and all them who are, in eminent station; in order that, an undisturbed, and quiet life, we may lead, in all godliness and gravity: 3 This, is comely and acceptable before our Saviour God, 4 Who willeth, all men, to be saved, and, unto a personal knowledge of truth, to come; 5 For there is, one, God, one, mediator also, between God and men,—a man—Christ Jesus: 6 Who gave himself a ransom in behalf of all,—the testimony, in its own fit times: 7 Unto which, I, have been appointed proclaimer and apostle—Truth I speak, I utter no falsehood—a teacher of nations, in faith and truth. 8 I am minded, therefore, that—the men in every place be offering prayer, uplifting hands of lovingkindness, apart from anger and disputings; 9 In the same way, that, the women, in seemly attire, with modesty and sober-mindedness, be adorning themselves,—not with plaitings and ornamentation of gold, or with pearls, or with costly apparel,— 10 But, which becometh women promising godliness, through means of good works. 11 Let, a woman, in quietness, be learning in all submission; 12 But, teaching—unto a woman, I do not permit, nor yet to have authority over a man,—but to be in quietness; 13 For, Adam, first was formed, then Eve, 14 And, Adam, was not deceived, whereas, the woman, having been wholly deceived, hath come to be, in transgression; 15 She shall be saved, however, through means of the child-bearing,—if they abide in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobermindedness. Faithful, the saying.

Deuteronomy 12:29-32

29 When Yahweh thy God shall cut off from before thee, the nations Whom thou art going in to dispossess,—and thou do dispossess them, and dwell in their land, 30 take heed to thyself lest thou be thrust after them, after they have been destroyed from before thee,—and lest thou enquire after their gods, saying—In what manner, did these nations serve their gods, that, I too, may do likewise? 31 Thou shalt not do likewise unto Yahweh thy God,—for everything that is an abomination unto Yahweh which he doth hate, have they done unto their gods, for even their sons and their daughters, do they consume with fire unto their gods. 32 Whatsoever be the thing which I am commanding you, the same, shall ye observe to do,—thou shalt neither add thereunto, nor take away therefrom.
