Genesis 4:1-26

1 And the man knew Eve his wife, and she conceiveth and beareth Cain, and saith, `I have gotten a man by Jehovah;' 2 and she addeth to bear his brother, even Abel. And Abel is feeding a flock, and Cain hath been servant of the ground.
3 And it cometh to pass at the end of days that Cain bringeth from the fruit of the ground a present to Jehovah; 4 and Abel, he hath brought, he also, from the female firstlings of his flock, even from their fat ones; and Jehovah looketh unto Abel and unto his present, 5 and unto Cain and unto his present He hath not looked; and it is very displeasing to Cain, and his countenance is fallen.
6 And Jehovah saith unto Cain, `Why hast thou displeasure? and why hath thy countenance fallen? 7 Is there not, if thou dost well, acceptance? and if thou dost not well, at the opening a sin-offering is crouching, and unto thee its desire, and thou rulest over it.'
8 And Cain saith unto Abel his brother, `Let us go into the field;' and it cometh to pass in their being in the field, that Cain riseth up against Abel his brother, and slayeth him.
9 And Jehovah saith unto Cain, `Where is Abel thy brother?' and he saith, `I have not known; my brother's keeper—I?' 10 And He saith, `What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood is crying unto Me from the ground; 11 and now, cursed art thou from the ground, which hath opened her mouth to receive the blood of thy brother from thy hand; 12 when thou tillest the ground, it doth not add to give its strength to thee—a wanderer, even a trembling one, thou art in the earth.'
13 And Cain saith unto Jehovah, `Greater is my punishment than to be borne; 14 lo, Thou hast driven me to-day from off the face of the ground, and from Thy face I am hid; and I have been a wanderer, even a trembling one, in the earth, and it hath been—every one finding me doth slay me.' 15 And Jehovah saith to him, `Therefore—of any slayer of Cain sevenfold it is required;' and Jehovah setteth to Cain a token that none finding him doth slay him.
16 And Cain goeth out from before Jehovah, and dwelleth in the land, moving about east of Eden; 17 and Cain knoweth his wife, and she conceiveth, and beareth Enoch; and he is building a city, and he calleth the name of the city, according to the name of his son—Enoch. 18 And born to Enoch is Irad; and Irad hath begotten Mehujael; and Mehujael hath begotten Methusael; and Methusael hath begotten Lamech.
19 And Lamech taketh to himself two wives, the name of the one Adah, and the name of the second Zillah. 20 And Adah beareth Jabal, he hath been father of those inhabiting tents and purchased possessions; 21 and the name of his brother is Jubal, he hath been father of every one handling harp and organ. 22 And Zillah she also bare Tubal-Cain, an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron; and a sister of Tubal-Cain is Naamah.
23 And Lamech saith to his wives: —`Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; Wives of Lamech, give ear to my saying: For a man I have slain for my wound, Even a young man for my hurt; 24 For sevenfold is required for Cain, And for Lamech seventy and sevenfold.'
25 And Adam again knoweth his wife, and she beareth a son, and calleth his name Seth, `for God hath appointed for me another seed instead of Abel:' for Cain had slain him. 26 And to Seth, to him also a son hath been born, and he calleth his name Enos; then a beginning was made of preaching in the name of Jehovah.

Luke 10:30-37

30 and Jesus having taken up the word, said, `A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and having stripped him and inflicted blows, they went away, leaving him half dead. 31 `And by a coincidence a certain priest was going down in that way, and having seen him, he passed over on the opposite side; 32 and in like manner also, a Levite, having been about the place, having come and seen, passed over on the opposite side. 33 `But a certain Samaritan, journeying, came along him, and having seen him, he was moved with compassion, 34 and having come near, he bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine, and having lifted him up on his own beast, he brought him to an inn, and was careful of him; 35 and on the morrow, going forth, taking out two denaries, he gave to the innkeeper, and said to him, Be careful of him, and whatever thou mayest spend more, I, in my coming again, will give back to thee. 36 `Who, then, of these three, seemeth to thee to have become neighbour of him who fell among the robbers?' 37 and he said, `He who did the kindness with him,' then Jesus said to him, `Be going on, and thou be doing in like manner.'

Exodus 20:1-26

1 `And God speaketh all these words, saying, 2 I am Jehovah thy God, who hath brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of a house of servants. 3 `Thou hast no other Gods before Me. 4 `Thou dost not make to thyself a graven image, or any likeness which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth. 5 Thou dost not bow thyself to them, nor serve them: for I, Jehovah thy God, am a zealous God, charging iniquity of fathers on sons, on the third generation, and on the fourth, of those hating Me, 6 and doing kindness to thousands, of those loving Me and keeping My commands. 7 `Thou dost not take up the name of Jehovah thy God for a vain thing, for Jehovah acquitteth not him who taketh up His name for a vain thing. 8 `Remember the Sabbath-day to sanctify it; 9 six days thou dost labour, and hast done all thy work, 10 and the seventh day is a Sabbath to Jehovah thy God; thou dost not do any work, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man-servant, and thy handmaid, and thy cattle, and thy sojourner who is within thy gates, — 11 for six days hath Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and resteth in the seventh day; therefore hath Jehovah blessed the Sabbath-day, and doth sanctify it.
12 `Honour thy father and thy mother, so that thy days are prolonged on the ground which Jehovah thy God is giving to thee. 13 `Thou dost not murder. 14 `Thou dost not commit adultery. 15 `Thou dost not steal. 16 `Thou dost not answer against thy neighbour a false testimony. 17 `Thou dost not desire the house of thy neighbour, thou dost not desire the wife of thy neighbour, or his man-servant, or his handmaid, or his ox, or his ass, or anything which is thy neighbour's.'
18 And all the people are seeing the voices, and the flames, and the sound of the trumpet, and the mount smoking; and the people see, and move, and stand afar off, 19 and say unto Moses, `Speak thou with us, and we hear, and let not God speak with us, lest we die.' 20 And Moses saith unto the people, `Fear not, for to try you hath God come, and in order that His fear may be before your faces—that ye sin not.' 21 And the people stand afar off, and Moses hath drawn nigh unto the thick darkness where God is .
22 And Jehovah saith unto Moses, `Thus dost thou say unto the sons of Israel: Ye—ye have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you; 23 ye do not make with Me gods of silver, even gods of gold ye do not make to yourselves. 24 `An altar of earth thou dost make for Me, and thou hast sacrificed on it thy burnt-offerings and thy peace-offerings, thy flock and thy herd; in every place where I cause My name to be remembered I come in unto thee, and have blessed thee. 25 `And if an altar of stones thou dost make to Me, thou dost not build them of hewn work; when thy tool thou hast waved over it, then thou dost pollute it; 26 neither dost thou go up by steps on Mine altar, that thy nakedness be not revealed upon it.

Psalms 46:1

1 To the Overseer. —By sons of Korah. `For the Virgins.' —A song. God is to us a refuge and strength, A help in adversities found most surely.

Proverbs 25:26

26 A spring troubled, and a fountain corrupt, Is the righteous falling before the wicked.

Matthew 5:1-48

1 And having seen the multitudes, he went up to the mount, and he having sat down, his disciples came to him, 2 and having opened his mouth, he was teaching them, saying:
3 `Happy the poor in spirit—because theirs is the reign of the heavens. 4 `Happy the mourning—because they shall be comforted. 5 `Happy the meek—because they shall inherit the land. 6 `Happy those hungering and thirsting for righteousness—because they shall be filled. 7 `Happy the kind—because they shall find kindness. 8 `Happy the clean in heart—because they shall see God. 9 `Happy the peacemakers—because they shall be called Sons of God. 10 `Happy those persecuted for righteousness' sake—because theirs is the reign of the heavens. 11 `Happy are ye whenever they may reproach you, and may persecute, and may say any evil thing against you falsely for my sake— 12 rejoice ye and be glad, because your reward is great in the heavens, for thus did they persecute the prophets who were before you.
13 `Ye are the salt of the land, but if the salt may lose savour, in what shall it be salted? for nothing is it good henceforth, except to be cast without, and to be trodden down by men. 14 `Ye are the light of the world, a city set upon a mount is not able to be hid; 15 nor do they light a lamp, and put it under the measure, but on the lamp-stand, and it shineth to all those in the house; 16 so let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and may glorify your Father who is in the heavens.
17 `Do not suppose that I came to throw down the law or the prophets—I did not come to throw down, but to fulfil; 18 for, verily I say to you, till that the heaven and the earth may pass away, one iota or one tittle may not pass away from the law, till that all may come to pass. 19 `Whoever therefore may loose one of these commands—the least—and may teach men so, least he shall be called in the reign of the heavens, but whoever may do and may teach them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. 20 `For I say to you, that if your righteousness may not abound above that of the scribes and Pharisees, ye may not enter to the reign of the heavens.
21 `Ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not kill, and whoever may kill shall be in danger of the judgment; 22 but I—I say to you, that every one who is angry at his brother without cause, shall be in danger of the judgment, and whoever may say to his brother, Empty fellow! shall be in danger of the sanhedrim, and whoever may say, Rebel! shall be in danger of the gehenna of the fire. 23 `If, therefore, thou mayest bring thy gift to the altar, and there mayest remember that thy brother hath anything against thee, 24 leave there thy gift before the altar, and go—first be reconciled to thy brother, and then having come bring thy gift. 25 `Be agreeing with thy opponent quickly, while thou art in the way with him, that the opponent may not deliver thee to the judge, and the judge may deliver thee to the officer, and to prison thou mayest be cast, 26 verily I say to thee, thou mayest not come forth thence till that thou mayest pay the last farthing.
27 `Ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not commit adultery; 28 but I—I say to you, that every one who is looking on a woman to desire her, did already commit adultery with her in his heart. 29 `But, if thy right eye doth cause thee to stumble, pluck it out and cast from thee, for it is good to thee that one of thy members may perish, and not thy whole body be cast to gehenna. 30 `And, if thy right hand doth cause thee to stumble, cut it off, and cast from thee, for it is good to thee that one of thy members may perish, and not thy whole body be cast to gehenna. 31 `And it was said, That whoever may put away his wife, let him give to her a writing of divorce; 32 but I—I say to you, that whoever may put away his wife, save for the matter of whoredom, doth make her to commit adultery; and whoever may marry her who hath been put away doth commit adultery.
33 `Again, ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not swear falsely, but thou shalt pay to the Lord thine oaths; 34 but I—I say to you, not to swear at all; neither by the heaven, because it is the throne of God, 35 nor by the earth, because it is His footstool, nor by Jerusalem, because it is a city of a great king, 36 nor by thy head mayest thou swear, because thou art not able one hair to make white or black; 37 but let your word be, Yes, Yes, No, No, and that which is more than these is of the evil.
38 `Ye heard that it was said: Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth; 39 but I—I say to you, not to resist the evil, but whoever shall slap thee on thy right cheek, turn to him also the other; 40 and whoever is willing to take thee to law, and thy coat to take—suffer to him also the cloak. 41 `And whoever shall impress thee one mile, go with him two, 42 to him who is asking of thee be giving, and him who is willing to borrow from thee thou mayest not turn away.
43 `Ye heard that it was said: Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and shalt hate thine enemy; 44 but I—I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those cursing you, do good to those hating you, and pray for those accusing you falsely, and persecuting you, 45 that ye may be sons of your Father in the heavens, because His sun He doth cause to rise on evil and good, and He doth send rain on righteous and unrighteous. 46 `For, if ye may love those loving you, what reward have ye? do not also the tax-gatherers the same? 47 and if ye may salute your brethren only, what do ye abundant? do not also the tax-gatherers so? 48 ye shall therefore be perfect, as your Father who is in the heavens is perfect.

Leviticus 26:1-46

1 `Ye do not make to yourselves idols; and graven image or standing image ye do not set up to yourselves; and a stone of imagery ye do not put in your land, to bow yourselves to it; for I am Jehovah your God. 2 `My sabbaths ye do keep, and My sanctuary ye do reverence; I am Jehovah. 3 `If in My statutes ye walk, and My commands ye keep, and have done them, 4 then I have given your rains in their season, and the land hath given her produce, and the tree of the field doth give its fruit; 5 and reached to you hath the threshing, the gathering, and the gathering doth reach the sowing-time; and ye have eaten your bread to satiety, and have dwelt confidently in your land. 6 `And I have given peace in the land, and ye have lain down, and there is none causing trembling; and I have caused evil beasts to cease out of the land, and the sword doth not pass over into your land. 7 `And ye have pursued your enemies, and they have fallen before you by the sword; 8 and five of you have pursued a hundred, and a hundred of you do pursue a myriad; and your enemies have fallen before you by the sword. 9 `And I have turned unto you, and have made you fruitful, and have multiplied you, and have established My covenant with you; 10 and ye have eaten old store, and the old because of the new ye bring out. 11 `And I have given My tabernacle in your midst, and My soul doth not loathe you; 12 and I have walked habitually in your midst, and have become your God, and ye—ye are become My people; 13 I am Jehovah your God, who have brought you out of the land of the Egyptians, from being their servants; and I break the bars of your yoke, and cause you to go erect.
14 `And if ye do not hearken to Me, and do not all these commands; 15 and if at My statutes ye kick, and if My judgments your soul loathe, so as not to do all My commands—to your breaking My covenant— 16 I also do this to you, and I have appointed over you trouble, the consumption, and the burning fever, consuming eyes, and causing pain of soul; and your seed in vain ye have sowed, and your enemies have eaten it; 17 and I have set My face against you, and ye have been smitten before your enemies; and those hating you have ruled over you, and ye have fled, and there is none pursuing you. 18 `And if unto these ye hearken not to Me, —then I have added to chastise you seven times for your sins; 19 and I have broken the pride of your strength, and have made your heavens as iron, and your earth as brass; 20 and consumed hath been your strength in vain, and your land doth not give her produce, and the tree of the land doth not give its fruit. 21 `And if ye walk with Me in opposition, and are not willing to hearken to Me, then I have added to you a plague seven times, according to your sins, 22 and sent against you the beast of the field, and it hath bereaved you; and I have cut off your cattle, and have made you few, and your ways have been desolate. 23 `And if by these ye are not instructed by Me, and have walked with Me in opposition, 24 then I have walked—I also—with you in opposition, and have smitten you, even I, seven times for your sins; 25 and I have brought in on you a sword, executing the vengeance of a covenant; and ye have been gathered unto your cities, and I have sent pestilence into your midst, and ye have been given into the hand of an enemy. 26 `In My breaking to you the staff of bread, then ten women have baked your bread in one oven, and have given back your bread by weight; and ye have eaten, and are not satisfied. 27 `And if for this ye hearken not to Me, and have walked with Me in opposition, 28 then I have walked with you in the fury of opposition, and have chastised you, even I, seven times for your sins. 29 `And ye have eaten the flesh of your sons; even flesh of your daughters ye do eat. 30 And I have destroyed your high places, and cut down your images, and have put your carcases on the carcases of your idols, and My soul hath loathed you; 31 and I have made your cities a waste, and have made desolate your sanctuaries, and I smell not at your sweet fragrances; 32 and I have made desolate the land, and your enemies, who are dwelling in it, have been astonished at it. 33 And you I scatter among nations, and have drawn out after you a sword, and your land hath been a desolation, and your cities are a waste. 34 `Then doth the land enjoy its sabbaths—all the days of the desolation, and ye in the land of your enemies—then doth the land rest, and hath enjoyed its sabbaths; 35 all the days of the desolation it resteth that which it hath not rested in your sabbaths in your dwelling on it. 36 `And those who are left of you—I have also brought a faintness into their heart in the lands of their enemies, and the sound of a leaf driven away hath pursued them, and they have fled—flight from a sword—and they have fallen, and there is none pursuing. 37 And they have stumbled one on another, as from the face of a sword, and there is none pursuing, and ye have no standing before your enemies, 38 and ye have perished among the nations, and the land of your enemies hath consumed you. 39 `And those who are left of you—they consume away in their iniquity, in the lands of your enemies; and also in the iniquities of their fathers, with them they consume away.
40 `And—they have confessed their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, in their trespass which they have trespassed against Me, and also, that they have walked with Me, in opposition, 41 also I walk to them in opposition, and have brought them into the land of their enemies—or then their uncircumcised heart is humbled, and then they accept the punishment of their iniquity, — 42 then I have remembered My covenant with Jacob, and also My covenant with Isaac, and also My covenant with Abraham I remember, and the land I remember. 43 `And—the land is left of them, and doth enjoy its sabbaths, in the desolation without them, and they accept the punishment of their iniquity, because, even because, against My judgments they have kicked, and My statutes hath their soul loathed, 44 and also even this, in their being in the land of their enemies, I have not rejected them, nor have I loathed them, to consume them, to break My covenant with them; for I am Jehovah their God; — 45 then I have remembered for them the covenant of the ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt before the eyes of the nations to become their God; I am Jehovah.' 46 These are the statutes, and the judgments, and the laws, which Jehovah hath given between Him and the sons of Israel, in mount Sinai, by the hand of Moses.

6 this knowing, that our old man was crucified with him, that the body of the sin may be made useless, for our no longer serving the sin; 7 for he who hath died hath been set free from the sin.
