Preface to the World English Bible
What is the Holy Bible?
The Holy Bible is a collection of books and letters written by many people who were inspired by the Holy Spirit of God. These books tell us how we can be saved from the evil of this world and gain eternal life that is truly worth living. Although the Holy Bible contains rules of conduct, it is not just a rule book. It reveals God’s heart— a Father’s heart, full of love and compassion. The Holy Bible tells you what you need to know and believe to be saved from sin and evil and how to live a life that is truly worth living, no matter what your current circumstances may be. The Holy Bible consists of two main sections: the Old Testament (including Psalms and Proverbs) and the New Testament (Matthew through Revelation). The Old Testament records God’s interaction with mankind before He sent His son to redeem us, while recording prophesy predicting that coming. The New Testament tells us of God’s Son and Anointed One, Jesus, and the wonderful salvation that He purchased for us. The same Holy Spirit who inspired the Holy Bible is living among us today, and He is happy to help you understand what He intended as you study His Word. Just ask Him, and He is more than happy to help you apply His message to your life. The Old Testament was originally written mostly in Hebrew. The New Testament was originally written mostly in the common street Greek (not the formal Greek used for official legal matters). The Holy Bible is translated into many languages, and being translated into many more, so that everyone may have an opportunity to hear the Good News about Jesus Christ.

Why was the World English Bible translated?
There are already many good translations of the Holy Bible into contemporary English. Unfortunately, almost all of them are restricted by copyright and copyright holder policy. This restricts publication and republication of God’s Word in many ways, such as in downloadable files on the Internet, use of extensive quotations in books, etc. The World English Bible was commissioned by God in response to prayer about this subject. Because the World English Bible is in the Public Domain (not copyrighted), it can be freely copied, distributed, and redistributed without any payment of royalties. You don’t even have to ask permission to do so. You may publish the whole World English Bible in book form, bind it in leather and sell it. You may incorporate it into your Bible study software. You may make and distribute audio recordings of it. You may broadcast it. All you have to do is maintain the integrity of God’s Word before God, and reserve the name “World English Bible” for faithful copies of this translation.

How was the World English Bible translated?
The World English Bible is an update of the American Standard Version (ASV) of the Holy Bible, published in 1901. A custom computer program updated the archaic words and word forms to contemporary equivalents, and then a team of volunteers proofread and updated the grammar. The New Testament was updated to conform to the Majority Text reconstruction of the original Greek manuscripts, thus taking advantage of the superior access to manuscripts that we have now compared to when the original ASV was translated.

What is different about the World English Bible?
The style of the World English Bible, while fairly literally translated, is in informal, spoken English. The World English Bible is designed to sound good and be accurate when read aloud. It is not formal in its language, just as the original Greek of the New Testament was not formal. The WEB uses contractions rather freely. The World English Bible doesn’t capitalize pronouns pertaining to God. The original manuscripts made no such distinction. Hebrew has no such thing as upper and lower case, and the original Greek manuscripts were written in all upper case letters. Attempting to add in such a distinction raises some difficulties in translating dual-meaning Scriptures such as the coronation psalms. The World English Bible main edition translates God’s Proper Name in the Old Testament as “Yahweh.” The Messianic Edition and the British Edition of the World English Bible translates the same name as “LORD” (all capital letters), or when used with “Lord” (mixed case, translated from “Adonai,”) GOD. There are solid translational arguments for both traditions. Because World English Bible uses the Majority Text as the basis for the New Testament, you may notice the following differences in comparing the WEB to other translations: The order of Matthew 23:13 and 14 is reversed in some translations. Luke 17:36 and Acts 15:34, which are not found in the majority of the Greek Manuscripts (and are relegated to footnotes in the WEB) may be included in some other translations.

Preface 1

Romans 14:24-26 in the WEB may appear as Romans 16:25-27 in other translations. 1 John 5:7-8 contains an addition in some translations, including the KJV. Erasmus admitted adding this text to his published Greek New Testament, even though he could at first find no Greek manuscript support for it, because he was being pressured by men to do so, and because he didn’t see any doctrinal harm in it. Lots of things not written by John in this letter are true, but we decline to add them to what the Holy Spirit inspired through John. With all of the above and some other places where lack of clarity in the original manuscripts has led to multiple possible readings, significant variants are listed in footnotes. The reading that in our prayerful judgment is best is in the main text. Overall, the World English Bible isn’t very much different than several other good contemporary English translations of the Holy Bible. The message of Salvation through Jesus Christ is still the same. The point of this translation was not to be very different (except for legal status), but to update the ASV for readability while retaining or improving the accuracy of that well-respected translation and retaining the public domain status of the ASV.

The First Book of Moses,
Commonly Called

Genesis

In the beginning, Goda created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty. Darkness was on the surface of the deep. God’s Spirit was hovering over the surface of the waters. 3 God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw the light, and saw that it was good. God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” There was evening and there was morning, one day. 6 God said, “Let there be an expanse in the middle of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” 7 God made the expanse, and divided the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so. 8 God called the expanse “sky.” There was evening and there was morning, a second day. 9 God said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together to one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. 10 God called the dry land “earth,” and the gathering together of the waters he called “seas.” God saw that it was good. 11 God said, “Let the earth yield grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit after their kind, with its seed in it, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 The earth yielded grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, with its seed in it, after their kind; and God saw that it was good. 13 There was evening and there was morning, a third day. 14 God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of sky to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the expanse of sky to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 God made the two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the expanse of sky to give light to the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. 20 God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of sky.” 21 God created the large sea creatures, and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed, after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind. God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day. 24 God said, “Let the earth produce living creatures after their kind, livestock, creeping things, and animals of the earth after their kind”; and it was so. 25 God made the animals of the earth after their kind, and the livestock after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind. God saw that it was good. 26 God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the sky, and over the livestock, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 God created man in his own image. In God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them. God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29 God said, “Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree, which bears fruit yielding seed. It will be your food. 30 To every animal of the earth, and to every bird of the sky, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. There was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.

1 The heavens and the earth were finished, and all their vast array. 2 On the seventh day God finished his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3 God blessed the seventh day, and made it holy, because he rested in it from all his work which he had created and made. 4 This is the history of the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that Yahwehb God made the earth and the heavens. 5 No plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for Yahweh God had not caused it to rain on the earth. There was not a man to till the ground, 6 but a mist went up from the earth, and watered the whole surface of the ground. 7 Yahweh God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. 8 Yahweh God planted a garden eastward, in Eden, and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9 Out of the ground Yahweh God made every tree to grow that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the middle of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10 A river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it was parted, and became four heads. 11 The name of the first is Pishon: this is the one which flows through the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 12 and the gold of that land is good. There is aromatic resin and the onyx stone. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon:

the same river that flows through the whole land of Cush. 14 The name of the third river is Hiddekel: this is the one which flows in front of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates. 15 Yahweh God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16 Yahweh God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it; for in the day that you eat of it you will surely die.” 18 Yahweh God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” 19 Out of the ground Yahweh God formed every animal of the field, and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. Whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all livestock, and to the birds of the sky, and to every animal of the field; but for man there was not found a helper suitable for him. 21 Yahweh God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 He made the rib, which Yahweh God had taken from the man, into a woman, and brought her to the man. 23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken out of Man.” 24 Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother, and will join with his wife, and they will be one flesh. 25 They were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any animal of the field which Yahweh God had made. He said to the woman, “Has God really said, ‘You shall not eat of any tree of the garden?’” 2 The woman said to the serpent, “Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat, 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” 4 The serpent said to the woman, “You won’t surely die, 5 for God knows that in the day you eat it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit, and ate; and she gave some to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 The eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked. They sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 8 They heard the voice of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. 9 Yahweh God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” 10 The man said, “I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” 11 God said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?” 12 The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.” 13 Yahweh God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” 14 Yahweh God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, you are cursed above all livestock, and above every animal of the field. On your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. 15 I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel.” 16 To the woman he said, “I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth. In pain you will bear children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” 17 To Adam he said, “Because you have listened to your wife’s voice, and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground for your sake. In toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. 18 It will yield thorns and thistles to you; and you will eat the herb of the field. 19 By the sweat of your face will you eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” 20 The man called his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all living. 21 Yahweh God made coats of skins for Adam and for his wife, and clothed them. 22 Yahweh God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand, and also take of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever...” 23 Therefore Yahweh God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed cherubim/f + cherubim are powerful angelic creatures, messengers of God with wings. See Ezekiel 10./f* at the east of the garden of Eden, and the flame of a sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

1 The man knew Eve his wife. She conceived, and gave birth to Cain, and said, “I have gotten a man with Yahweh’s help.” 2 Again she gave birth, to Cain’s brother Abel. Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. 3 As time passed, it happened that Cain brought an offering to Yahweh from the fruit of the ground. 4 Abel also brought some of the firstborn of his flock and of its fat. Yahweh respected Abel and his offering, 5 but he didn’t respect Cain and his offering. Cain was very angry, and the expression on his face fell. 6 Yahweh said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why has the expression of your face fallen? 7 If you do well, will it not be lifted up? If you don’t do well, sin crouches at the door. Its desire is for you, but you are to rule over it.” 8 Cain said to

Abel, his brother, “Let’s go into the field.” It happened when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel, his brother, and killed him. 9 Yahweh said to Cain, “Where is Abel, your brother?” He said, “I don’t know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” 10 Yahweh said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries to me from the ground. 11 Now you are cursed because of the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 12 From now on, when you till the ground, it won’t yield its strength to you. You shall be a fugitive and a wanderer in the earth.” 13 Cain said to Yahweh, “My punishment is greater than I can bear. 14 Behold, you have driven me out this day from the surface of the ground. I will be hidden from your face, and I will be a fugitive and a wanderer in the earth. It will happen that whoever finds me will kill me.” 15 Yahweh said to him, “Therefore whoever slays Cain, vengeance will be taken on him sevenfold.” Yahweh appointed a sign for Cain, lest any finding him should strike him. 16 Cain went out from Yahweh’s presence, and lived in the land of Nod, east of Eden. 17 Cain knew his wife. She conceived, and gave birth to Enoch. He built a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. 18 To Enoch was born Irad. Irad became the father of Mehujael. Mehujael became the father of Methushael. Methushael became the father of Lamech. 19 Lamech took two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. 20 Adah gave birth to Jabal, who was the father of those who dwell in tents and have livestock. 21 His brother’s name was Jubal, who was the father of all who handle the harp and pipe. 22 Zillah also gave birth to Tubal Cain, the forger of every cutting instrument of brass and iron. Tubal Cain’s sister was Naamah. 23 Lamech said to his wives, “Adah and Zillah, hear my voice. You wives of Lamech, listen to my speech, for I have slain a man for wounding me, a young man for bruising me. 24 If Cain will be avenged seven times, truly Lamech seventy-seven times.” 25 Adam knew his wife again. She gave birth to a son, and named him Seth, “for God has appointed me another child instead of Abel, for Cain killed him.” 26 There was also born a son to Seth, and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on Yahweh’s name.

1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, he made him in God’s likeness. 2 He created them male and female, and blessed them, and called their name “Adam,”a in the day when they were created. 3 Adam lived one hundred thirty years, and became the father of a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. 4 The days of Adam after he became the father of Seth were eight hundred years, and he became the father of sons and daughters. 5 All the days that Adam lived were nine hundred thirty years, then he died. 6 Seth lived one hundred five years, and became the father of Enosh. 7 Seth lived after he became the father of Enosh eight hundred seven years, and became the father of sons and daughters. 8 All the days of Seth were nine hundred twelve years, then he died. 9 Enosh lived ninety years, and became the father of Kenan. 10 Enosh lived after he became the father of Kenan, eight hundred fifteen years, and became the father of sons and daughters. 11 All the days of Enosh were nine hundred five years, then he died. 12 Kenan lived seventy years, and became the father of Mahalalel. 13 Kenan lived after he became the father of Mahalalel eight hundred forty years, and became the father of sons and daughters 14 and all the days of Kenan were nine hundred ten years, then he died. 15 Mahalalel lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Jared. 16 Mahalalel lived after he became the father of Jared eight hundred thirty years, and became the father of sons and daughters. 17 All the days of Mahalalel were eight hundred ninety-five years, then he died. 18 Jared lived one hundred sixty-two years, and became the father of Enoch. 19 Jared lived after he became the father of Enoch eight hundred years, and became the father of sons and daughters. 20 All the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty-two years, then he died. 21 Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Methuselah. 22 Enoch walked with God after he became the father of Methuselah three hundred years, and became the father of sons and daughters. 23 All the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty-five years. 24 Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him. 25 Methuselah lived one hundred eighty-seven years, and became the father of Lamech. 26 Methuselah lived after he became the father of Lamech seven hundred eighty-two years, and became the father of sons and daughters. 27 All the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty-nine years, then he died. 28 Lamech lived one hundred eighty-two years, and became the father of a son, 29 and he named him Noah, saying, “This same will comfort us in our work and in the toil of our hands, because of the ground which Yahweh has cursed.” 30 Lamech lived after he

became the father of Noah five hundred ninety-five years, and became the father of sons and daughters. 31 All the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy-seven years, then he died. 32 Noah was five hundred years old, and Noah became the father of Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

happened, when men began to multiply on the surface of the ground, and daughters were born to them, 2 that God’s sons saw that men’s daughters were beautiful, and they took for themselves wives of all that they chose. 3 Yahweh said, “My Spirit will not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; yet will his days be one hundred twenty years.” 4 The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when God’s sons came in to men’s daughters. They bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. 5 Yahweh saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 Yahweh was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him in his heart. 7 Yahweh said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the surface of the ground; man, along with animals, creeping things, and birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in Yahweh’s eyes. 9 This is the history of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time. Noah walked with God. 10 Noah became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 The earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 God saw the earth, and saw that it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. 13 God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make a ship of gopher wood. You shall make rooms in the ship, and shall seal it inside and outside with pitch. 15 This is how you shall make it. The length of the ship will be three hundred cubits, its breadth fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 You shall make a roof in the ship, and you shall finish it to a cubit upward. You shall set the door of the ship in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third levels. 17 I, even I, do bring the flood of waters on this earth, to destroy all flesh having the breath of life from under the sky. Everything that is in the earth will die. 18 But I will establish my covenant with you. You shall come into the ship, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19 Of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ship, to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds after their kind, of the livestock after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every sort shall come to you, to keep them alive. 21 Take with you of all food that is eaten, and gather it to yourself; and it will be for food for you, and for them.” 22 Thus Noah did. According to all that God commanded him, so he did.

said to Noah, “Come with all of your household into the ship, for I have seen your righteousness before me in this generation. 2 You shall take seven pairs of every clean animal with you, the male and his female. Of the animals that are not clean, take two, the male and his female. 3 Also of the birds of the sky, seven and seven, male and female, to keep seed alive on the surface of all the earth. 4 In seven days, I will cause it to rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights. Every living thing that I have made, I will destroy from the surface of the ground.” 5 Noah did everything that Yahweh commanded him. 6 Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came on the earth. 7 Noah went into the ship with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, because of the waters of the flood. 8 Clean animals, animals that are not clean, birds, and everything that creeps on the ground 9 went by pairs to Noah into the ship, male and female, as God commanded Noah. 10 It happened after the seven days, that the waters of the flood came on the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep were burst open, and the sky’s windows were opened. 12 The rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights. 13 In the same day Noah, and Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, entered into the ship; 14 they, and every animal after its kind, all the livestock after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort. 15 They went to Noah into the ship, by pairs of all flesh with the breath of life in them. 16 Those who went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God commanded him; and Yahweh shut him in. 17 The flood was forty days on the earth. The waters increased, and lifted up the ship, and it was lifted up above the earth. 18 The waters prevailed, and increased greatly on the earth; and the ship floated on the surface of the waters. 19 The waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth. All the high mountains that were under the whole sky were covered. 20 The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered. 21 All flesh died that moved on the earth, including birds, livestock, animals, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man. 22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, of all that was on the dry land, died. 23 Every living thing was destroyed that was on the surface of the ground, including man, livestock, creeping things, and birds of the sky. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ship. 24 The waters prevailed on the earth one hundred fifty days.

Genesis 9

1 God remembered Noah, all the animals, and all the livestock that were with him in the ship; and God made a wind to pass over the earth. The waters subsided. 2 The deep’s fountains and the sky’s windows were also stopped, and the rain from the sky was restrained. 3 The waters receded from the earth continually. After the end of one hundred fifty days the waters decreased. 4 The ship rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on Ararat’s mountains. 5 The waters receded continually until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen. 6 It happened at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ship which he had made, 7 and he sent out a raven. It went back and forth, until the waters were dried up from the earth. 8 He sent out a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from the surface of the ground, 9 but the dove found no place to rest her foot, and she returned to him into the ship; for the waters were on the surface of the whole earth. He put out his hand, and took her, and brought her to him into the ship. 10 He stayed yet another seven days; and again he sent the dove out of the ship. 11 The dove came back to him at evening, and, behold, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off. So Noah knew that the waters were abated from the earth. 12 He stayed yet another seven days, and sent out the dove; and she didn’t return to him any more. 13 It happened in the six hundred first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from the earth. Noah removed the covering of the ship, and looked. He saw that the surface of the ground was dried. 14 In the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dry. 15 God spoke to Noah, saying, 16 “Go out of the ship, you, and your wife, and your sons, and your sons’ wives with you. 17 Bring out with you every living thing that is with you of all flesh, including birds, livestock, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply on the earth.” 18 Noah went out, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives with him. 19 Every animal, every creeping thing, and every bird, whatever moves on the earth, after their families, went out of the ship. 20 Noah built an altar to Yahweh, and took of every clean animal, and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 Yahweh smelled the pleasant aroma. Yahweh said in his heart, “I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake, because the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I ever again strike everything living, as I have done. 22 While the earth remains, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”

1 God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. 2 The fear of you and the dread of you will be on every animal of the earth, and on every bird of the sky. Everything that the ground teems with, and all the fish of the sea are delivered into your hand. 3 Every moving thing that lives will be food for you. As the green herb, I have given everything to you. 4 But flesh with its life, its blood, you shall not eat. 5 I will surely require your blood of your lives. At the hand of every animal I will require it. At the hand of man, even at the hand of every man’s brother, I will require the life of man. 6 Whoever sheds man’s blood, his blood will be shed by man, for God made man in his own image. 7 Be fruitful and multiply. Increase abundantly in the earth, and multiply in it.” 8 God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying, 9 “As for me, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your offspring after you, 10 and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the livestock, and every animal of the earth with you, of all that go out of the ship, even every animal of the earth. 11 I will establish my covenant with you: all flesh will not be cut off any more by the waters of the flood, neither will there ever again be a flood to destroy the earth.” 12 God said, “This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it will be for a sign of a covenant between me and the earth. 14 It will happen, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow will be seen in the cloud, 15 and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters will no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 The rainbow will be in the cloud. I will look at it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 17 God said to Noah, “This is the token of the covenant which I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.” 18 The sons of Noah who went out from the ship were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham is the father of Canaan. 19 These three were the sons of Noah, and from these, the whole earth was populated. 20 Noah began to be a farmer, and planted a vineyard. 21 He drank of the wine and got drunk. He was uncovered within his tent. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. 23 Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it on both their shoulders, went in backwards, and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were backwards, and they didn’t see their father’s nakedness. 24 Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his youngest son had done to him. 25 He said, “Canaan is cursed. He will be servant of servants to his brothers.” 26 He said, “Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Shem. Let Canaan be his servant. 27 May God enlarge Japheth. Let him dwell in the tents of Shem. Let Canaan be his servant.” 28 Noah lived three hundred fifty years after the flood. 29 All the days of Noah were nine hundred fifty years, then he died.

1 Now this is the history of the generations of the sons of Noah and of Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Sons were born to them after the flood. 2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. 3 The sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. 4 The sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5 Of these were the islands of the nations divided in their lands, everyone after his language, after their families, in their nations. 6 The sons of Ham: Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. 7 The sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan. 8 Cush became the father of Nimrod. He began to be a mighty one in the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before Yahweh. Therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before Yahweh.” 10 The beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11 Out of that land he went into Assyria, and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah, 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (the same is the great city). 13 Mizraim became the father of Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, 14 Pathrusim, Casluhim (which the Philistines descended from), and Caphtorim. 15 Canaan became the father of Sidon (his firstborn), Heth, 16 the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgashite, 17 the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite, 18 the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. Afterward the families of the Canaanites were spread abroad. 19 The border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as you go toward Gerar, to Gaza; as you go toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, to Lasha. 20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their languages, in their lands, in their nations. 21 To Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the elder brother of Japheth, to him also were children born. 22 The sons of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram. 23 The sons of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. 24 Arpachshad became the father of Shelah. Shelah became the father of Eber. 25 To Eber were born two sons. The name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided. His brother’s name was Joktan. 26 Joktan became the father of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29 Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were the sons of Joktan. 30 Their dwelling was from Mesha, as you go toward Sephar, the mountain of the east. 31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their languages, in their lands, after their nations. 32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations. Of these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.

1 The whole earth was of one language and of one speech. 2 It happened, as they traveled east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they lived there. 3 They said one to another, “Come, let’s make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar. 4 They said, “Come, let’s build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top reaches to the sky, and let’s make ourselves a name, lest we be scattered abroad on the surface of the whole earth.” 5 Yahweh came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built. 6 Yahweh said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is what they begin to do. Now nothing will be withheld from them, which they intend to do. 7 Come, let’s go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” 8 So Yahweh scattered them abroad from there on the surface of all the earth. They stopped building the city. 9 Therefore its name was called Babel, because there Yahweh confused the language of all the earth. From there, Yahweh scattered them abroad on the surface of all the earth. 10 This is the history of the generations of Shem. Shem was one hundred years old and became the father of Arpachshad two years after the flood. 11 Shem lived five hundred years after he became the father of Arpachshad, and became the father of sons and daughters. 12 Arpachshad lived thirty-five years and became the father of Shelah. 13 Arpachshad lived four hundred three years after he became the father of Shelah, and became the father of sons and daughters. 14 Shelah lived thirty years, and became the father of Eber: 15 and Shelah lived four hundred three years after he became the father of Eber, and became the father of sons and daughters. 16 Eber lived thirty-four years, and became the father of Peleg. 17 Eber lived four hundred thirty years after he became the father of Peleg, and became the father of sons and daughters. 18 Peleg lived thirty years, and became the father of Reu. 19 Peleg lived two hundred nine years after he became the father of Reu, and became the father of sons and daughters. 20 Reu lived thirty-two years, and became the father of Serug. 21 Reu lived two hundred seven years after he became the father of Serug, and became the father of sons and daughters. 22 Serug lived thirty years, and became the father of Nahor. 23 Serug lived two hundred years after he became the father of Nahor, and became the father of sons and daughters. 24 Nahor lived twenty-nine years, and became the father of Terah. 25 Nahor lived one hundred nineteen years after he became the father of Terah, and became the father of sons and daughters. 26 Terah lived seventy years, and became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran. 27 Now this is the history of the generations of Terah. Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Haran became the father of Lot. 28 Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldees. 29 Abram and Nahor took wives. The

name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran who was also the father of Iscah. 30 Sarai was barren. She had no child. 31 Terah took Abram his son, Lot the son of Haran, his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram’s wife. They went from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan. They came to Haran and lived there. 32 The days of Terah were two hundred five years. Terah died in Haran.

Now Yahweh said to Abram, “Get out of your country, and from your relatives, and from your father’s house, to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make of you a great nation. I will bless you and make your name great. You will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you. All of the families of the earth will be blessed in you.” 4 So Abram went, as Yahweh had spoken to him. Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed out of Haran. 5 Abram took Sarai his wife, Lot his brother’s son, all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls whom they had gotten in Haran, and they went to go into the land of Canaan. Into the land of Canaan they came. 6 Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. The Canaanite was then in the land. 7 Yahweh appeared to Abram and said, “I will give this land to your seed a.” He built an altar there to Yahweh, who appeared to him. 8 He left from there to the mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to Yahweh and called on Yahweh’s name. 9 Abram traveled, going on still toward the South. 10 There was a famine in the land. Abram went down into Egypt to live as a foreigner there, for the famine was severe in the land. 11 It happened, when he had come near to enter Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, “See now, I know that you are a beautiful woman to look at. 12 It will happen, when the Egyptians will see you, that they will say, ‘This is his wife.’ They will kill me, but they will save you alive. 13 Please say that you are my sister, that it may be well with me for your sake, and that my soul may live because of you.” 14 It happened that when Abram had come into Egypt, the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful. 15 The princes of Pharaoh saw her, and praised her to Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house. 16 He dealt well with Abram for her sake. He had sheep, cattle, male donkeys, male servants, female servants, female donkeys, and camels. 17 Yahweh plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram’s wife. 18 Pharaoh called Abram and said, “What is this that you have done to me? Why didn’t you tell me that she was your wife? 19 Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ so that I took her to be my wife? Now therefore, see your wife, take her, and go your way.” 20 Pharaoh commanded men concerning him, and they brought him on the way with his wife and all that he had.

went up out of Egypt: he, his wife, all that he had, and Lot with him, into the South. 2 Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. 3 He went on his journeys from the South even to Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, 4 to the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first. There Abram called on Yahweh’s name. 5 Lot also, who went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents. 6 The land was not able to bear them, that they might live together: for their substance was great, so that they could not live together. 7 There was a strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite lived in the land at that time. 8 Abram said to Lot, “Please, let there be no strife between me and you, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are relatives. 9 Isn’t the whole land before you? Please separate yourself from me. If you go to the left hand, then I will go to the right. Or if you go to the right hand, then I will go to the left.” 10 Lot lifted up his eyes, and saw all the plain of the Jordan, that it was well-watered everywhere, before Yahweh destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, like the garden of Yahweh, like the land of Egypt, as you go to Zoar. 11 So Lot chose the Plain of the Jordan for himself. Lot traveled east, and they separated themselves the one from the other. 12 Abram lived in the land of Canaan, and Lot lived in the cities of the plain, and moved his tent as far as Sodom. 13 Now the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinners against Yahweh. 14 Yahweh said to Abram, after Lot was separated from him, “Now, lift up your eyes, and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward, 15 for all the land which you see, I will give to you, and to your offspring forever. 16 I will make your offspring as the dust of the earth, so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then your seed may also be numbered. 17 Arise, walk through the land in its length and in its breadth; for I will give it to you.” 18 Abram moved his tent, and came and lived by the oaks of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and built an altar there to Yahweh.

1 It happened in the days of Amraphel, king of Shinar, Arioch, king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer, king of Elam, and Tidal, king of Goiim, 2 that they made war with Bera, king of Sodom, and with Birsha, king of Gomorrah, Shinab, king of Admah, and Shemeber, king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar). 3 All these joined together in the valley of Siddim (the same is the Salt Sea). 4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year, they rebelled. 5 In the fourteenth year Chedorlaomer

came, and the kings who were with him, and struck the Rephaim in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzim in Ham, and the Emim in Shaveh Kiriathaim, 6 and the Horites in their Mount Seir, to Elparan, which is by the wilderness. 7 They returned, and came to En Mishpat (the same is Kadesh), and struck all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that lived in Hazazon Tamar. 8 The king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar) went out; and they set the battle in array against them in the valley of Siddim; 9 against Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of Goiim, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings against the five. 10 Now the valley of Siddim was full of tar pits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and they fell there, and those who remained fled to the hills. 11 They took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their food, and went their way. 12 They took Lot, Abram’s brother’s son, who lived in Sodom, and his goods, and departed. 13 One who had escaped came and told Abram, the Hebrew. Now he lived by the oaks of Mamre, the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner; and these were allies of Abram. 14 When Abram heard that his relative was taken captive, he led out his trained men, born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued as far as Dan. 15 He divided himself against them by night, he and his servants, and struck them, and pursued them to Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus. 16 He brought back all the goods, and also brought back his relative, Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people. 17 The king of Sodom went out to meet him, after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, at the valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley). 18 Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine: and he was priest of God Most High. 19 He blessed him, and said, “Blessed be Abram of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth: 20 and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand.” Abram gave him a tenth of all. 21 The king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the people, and take the goods to yourself.” 22 Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have lifted up my hand to Yahweh, God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth, 23 that I will not take a thread nor a sandal strap nor anything that is yours, lest you should say, ‘I have made Abram rich.’ 24 I will accept nothing from you except that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me: Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre. Let them take their portion.”

1 After these things the word of Yahweh came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Don’t be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” 2 Abram said, “Lord a Yahweh, what will you give me, since I go childless, and he who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?” 3 Abram said, “Behold, to me you have given no seed: and, behold, one born in my house is my heir.” 4 Behold, the word of Yahweh came to him, saying, “This man will not be your heir, but he who will come out of your own body will be your heir.” 5 Yahweh brought him outside, and said, “Look now toward the sky, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” He said to Abram, “So shall your seed be.” 6 He believed in Yahweh; and he reckoned it to him for righteousness. 7 He said to him, “I am Yahweh who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it.” 8 He said, “Lord Yahweh, how will I know that I will inherit it?” 9 He said to him, “Bring me a heifer three years old, a female goat three years old, a ram three years old, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.” 10 He brought him all of these, and divided them in the middle, and laid each half opposite the other; but he didn’t divide the birds. 11 The birds of prey came down on the carcasses, and Abram drove them away. 12 When the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell on Abram. Now terror and great darkness fell on him. 13 He said to Abram, “Know for sure that your seed will live as foreigners in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them. They will afflict them four hundred years. 14 I will also judge that nation, whom they will serve. Afterward they will come out with great wealth, 15 but you will go to your fathers in peace. You will be buried in a good old age. 16 In the fourth generation they will come here again, for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet full.” 17 It came to pass that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold, a smoking furnace, and a flaming torch passed between these pieces. 18 In that day Yahweh made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your seed I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates: 19 the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, 20 the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, 21 the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.”

Sarai, Abram’s wife, bore him no children. She had a handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. 2 Sarai said to Abram, “See now, Yahweh has restrained me from bearing. Please go in to my handmaid. It may be that I will obtain children by her.” Abram listened to the voice of Sarai. 3 Sarai, Abram’s wife, took Hagar the Egyptian, her handmaid, after Abram had lived ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to Abram her husband to be his wife. 4 He went in to Hagar, and she conceived. When she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes. 5 Sarai said to Abram, “This wrong is your fault. I gave my

You shall call his name Isaac. and he who is bought with your money. when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. but Sarah. 14 The uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. and submit yourself under her hands. my covenant is with you. “Return to your mistress. “No. 10 This is my covenant. 12 He will be like a wild donkey among men. were circumcised. 11 You shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin. will bear you a son. but your name will be Abraham. 15 Hagar bore a son for Abram. as God had said to him. and when she saw that she had conceived. Behold. You shall call his name Ishmael. and saw that three men stood opposite him. “Behold. “As for you. and will multiply him exceedingly. to be a God to you and to your seed after you. must be circumcised. 13 He who is born in your house. “Have I even stayed alive after seeing him?” 14 Therefore the well was called Beer Lahai Roi. and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the same day. 7 I will establish my covenant between me and you and your seed after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant. and laughed. you and your seed after you throughout their generations. Every male among you shall be circumcised. by the fountain on the way to Shur. those born in the house. and she fled from her face. the land where you are traveling. and she will be a mother of nations. “Will a child be born to him who is one hundred years old? Will Sarah. for an everlasting possession. Kings will come out of you.” 11 The angel of Yahweh said to her. and will multiply you exceedingly. “Behold. as he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day. 16 I will bless her. his son.b I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his seed after him. 24 Abraham was ninety-nine years old. and bowed himself to the earth. 16 Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram. 12 He who is eight days old will be circumcised among you. whom Hagar bore.” for she said.” 3 Abram fell on his face.” 22 When he finished talking with him.” . 2 I will make my covenant between me and you. where did you come from? Where are you going?” She said. “My lord. I will be their God. Yahweh judge between me and you.” 17 Then Abraham fell on his face. 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful.” 9 God said to Abraham. 17 17 17 1 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 1 Yahweh appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre. 3 and said. his son.Genesis 16 14 Genesis 18 handmaid into your bosom. all who were born in his house. “You are a God who sees. and I will make nations of you. 23 Abraham took Ishmael his son. 27 All the men of his house. and moreover I will give you a son by her. and every man’s hand against him. 7 The angel of Yahweh found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness.” 10 The angel of Yahweh said to her. “Hagar. “I am fleeing from the face of my mistress Sarai. 21 But my covenant I establish with Isaac. I have heard you. God talked with him. for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. and said in his heart. your maid is in your hand. When he saw them. and said to him. He will live opposite all of his brothers. all the land of Canaan. 5 Neither will your name any more be called Abram. My covenant will be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. and I will make him a great nation. Yahweh appeared to Abram. that they will not be numbered for multitude. it is between Kadesh and Bered. You will be the father of a multitude of nations. he ran to meet them from the tent door. 2 He lifted up his eyes and looked.” 9 The angel of Yahweh said to her.” 6 But Abram said to Sarai. he who is born in the house. 26 In the same day both Abraham and Ishmael. Walk before me. He will become the father of twelve princes. 8 He said. “Oh that Ishmael might live before you!” 19 God said. 25 Ishmael. I was despised in her eyes. He has broken my covenant. you are with child. was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. and all who were bought with his money. please don’t go away from your servant. “As for Sarai your wife. between me and you and your seed after you.a Behold. or bought with money from any foreigner who is not of your seed. but her name will be Sarah. His hand will be against every man.” 15 God said to Abraham. and those bought with money of a foreigner. I will bless her. because Yahweh has heard your affliction. Ishmael. Do to her whatever is good in your eyes. 4 Now let a 18 a b 18 18 18 18 16:14 Beer Lahai Roi means “well of the one who lives and sees me. Abram called the name of his son. behold. and to your seed after you. 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 When Abram was ninety-nine years old. if now I have found favor in your sight. were circumcised with him. you will keep my covenant. give birth?” 18 Abraham said to God. your wife. Kings of peoples will come from her.” 17:19 Isaac means “he laughs. God went up from Abraham. Sarai’s handmaid. and will make him fruitful. you shall not call her name Sarai. It will be a token of the covenant between me and you. 4 “As for me. every male among the men of Abraham’s house. Yes. I have blessed him. whom Sarah will bear to you at this set time next year. every male throughout your generations.” 13 She called the name of Yahweh who spoke to her. saying. “I will greatly multiply your seed. and be blameless.

but you did laugh. which was behind him. “I didn’t laugh. Lot saw them. Please let me bring them out to you. Now will we deal worse with you. 10 But the men reached out their hand. 4 But before they lay down. 17 Yahweh said. wash your feet. and he appoints himself a judge. and because their sin is very grievous. What if there are twenty found there?” He said. saying.” 29 He spoke to him yet again. your wife?” He said. knead it. What if there are thirty found there?” He said. Behold. and drew near to break the door. and said. 28 What if there will lack five of the fifty righteous? Will you destroy all the city for lack of five?” He said. and gave it to the servant. saying. “I will certainly return to you when the season comes round.” They said. 19 19 19 1 The 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 . stay all night. I have two virgin daughters. “Will I hide from Abraham what I do.” 27 Abraham answered. “Where are the men who came in to you this night? Bring them out to us. if I find forty-five there. “I will not destroy it. and went toward Sodom. and Abraham returned to his place. Only don’t do anything to these men. and brought Lot into the house to them. 7 He said. don’t act so wickedly. “Oh don’t let the Lord be angry. “See now. “See now. “What if there are forty found there?” He said.” 30 He said.” 15 Then Sarah denied. “I will not do it for the forty’s sake. and go on your way. in the tent. He stood by them under the tree. all the people from every quarter. the men of Sodom. “I will not do it. and shut the door. because they have come under the shadow of my roof.” 6 Lot went out to them to the door. both small and great. Lot sat in the gate of Sodom. then I will spare all the place for their sake. 8 See now. if I find thirty there. to do righteousness and justice.” 9 They said. that they may keep the way of Yahweh.” Sarah heard in the tent door. and fetched a tender and good calf. Abraham went with them to see them on their way. “Where is Sarah. 9 They asked him.Genesis 18 15 Genesis 19 little water be fetched. to the end that Yahweh may bring on Abraham that which he has spoken of him. I have taken it on myself to speak to the Lord. and set it before them. “This one fellow came in to live as a foreigner.” 22 The men turned from there. and said to him. 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 two angels came to Sodom at evening.” 20 Yahweh said. to the end that he may command his children and his household after him. and said. and looked toward Sodom. “Stand back!” Then they said. “Very well. as soon as he had finished communing with Abraham. “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city. saying. and said. my lords. do as you have said. wash your feet.” 10 He said. I have taken it on myself to speak to the Lord. but we will stay in the street all night. surrounded the house. well advanced in age. If not. He hurried to dress it.” They said. and I will speak just once more. “After I have grown old will I have pleasure.” 7 Abraham ran to the herd. and make cakes. He made them a feast. 12 Sarah laughed within herself. and Sarah will have a son. and entered into his house. so that the righteous should be like the wicked. “Will you consume the righteous with the wicked? 24 What if there are fifty righteous within the city? Will you consume and not spare the place for the fifty righteous who are in it? 25 Be it far from you to do things like that.” for she was afraid. my brothers. so that they wearied themselves to find the door. “Oh don’t let the Lord be angry. 11 They struck the men who were at the door of the house with blindness.” 3 He urged them greatly. Sarah had passed the age of childbearing. After that you may go your way. “No. 18 since Abraham has surely become a great and mighty nation. 5 They called to Lot. to kill the righteous with the wicked. and all the nations of the earth will be blessed in him? 19 For I have known him. 2 and he said. milk. yet I am old?’ 14 Is anything too hard for Yahweh? At the set time I will return to you. He said. and rose up to meet them. when the season comes round.” 32 He said. please turn aside into your servant’s house. but Abraham stood yet before Yahweh.” 31 He said. “See now. “Quickly prepare three measures of fine meal. and see whether their deeds are as bad as the reports which have come to me. ‘Will I really bear a child. my lord being old also?” 13 Yahweh said to Abraham. and you can rise up early. 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old. and they ate. and baked unleavened bread. “Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great. “Please. He bowed himself with his face to the earth. and the calf which he had dressed. than with them!” They pressed hard on the man Lot. and they came in with him. 21 I will go down now. who am but dust and ashes. “See. Sarah your wife will have a son. 5 I will get a morsel of bread so you can refresh your heart. “I will not destroy it for the ten’s sake. May that be far from you. 8 He took butter. What if ten are found there?” He said. Shouldn’t the Judge of all the earth do right?” 26 Yahweh said. now that you have come to your servant. and rest yourselves under the tree. that we may have sex with them. and shut the door after him. both young and old. “Why did Sarah laugh. “I will not destroy it for the twenty’s sake. 23 Abraham drew near.” 6 Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah. and I will speak. “No.” 16 The men rose up from there.” 33 Yahweh went his way. the men of the city. and they ate. I will know. and you may do to them what seems good to you.

and lay with her father. “Escape for your life! Don’t look behind you. and said. “What have you done to us? How have I sinned against you. “Get up! Get out of this place. and saw that the smoke of the land went up as the smoke of a furnace. saying. that I will not overthrow the city of which you have spoken. lest you be consumed!” 18 Lot said to them. He is the father of the children of Ammon to this day. “Do you have anybody else here? Sons-in-law. ‘She is my sister?’ She. and all who are yours. Everywhere that we go. that you have brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? You have done deeds to me that ought not to be done!” 10 Abimelech said to Abraham. He lived as a foreigner in Gerar. not so.” 21 He said to him. and you will live. and I die. Let us make him drink wine again.” . lest evil overtake me. will you kill even a righteous nation? 5 Didn’t he tell me. that we may preserve our father’s seed. that God remembered Abraham. 3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream of the night.” 33 They made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in. and she became a pillar of salt. you. for I can’t do anything until you get there. and lived in the mountain. He is the father of the Moabites to this day. and gave them to Abraham. and you have magnified your loving kindness. the daughter of my father. 27 Abraham got up early in the morning to the place where he had stood before Yahweh. your sons. 29 It happened. that he said. 31 The firstborn said to the younger. They will kill me for my wife’s sake. “Our father is old. and lived between Kadesh and Shur. let’s make our father drink wine. and told all these things in their ear. said.’ In the integrity of my heart and the innocence of my hands have I done this.” Abimelech king of Gerar sent. 24 Then Yahweh rained on Sodom and on Gomorrah sulfur and fire from Yahweh out of the sky. He didn’t know when she lay down. I have granted your request concerning this thing also. and the men grabbed his hand. and I also withheld you from sinning against me. I can’t escape to the mountain. and there is not a man in the earth to come in to us in the way of all the earth. your servant has found favor in your sight. “Behold. 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 traveled from there toward the land of the South. 15 Abimelech said. If you don’t restore her. for Yahweh will destroy the city. say of me. you are a dead man. 22 Hurry. she is indeed my sister. all the plain. 28 He looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah. because the outcry against them has grown great before Yahweh that Yahweh has sent us to destroy it. and whoever you have in the city. Yahweh being merciful to him. 32 Come. because of the woman whom you have taken. which you have shown to me in saving my life.” 4 Now Abimelech had not come near her. 37 The firstborn bore a son. 15 When the morning came. all the inhabitants of the cities. and took Sarah. nor when she got up.” 8 Abimelech rose early in the morning. The younger went and lay with him. “Behold. “Lord. and toward all the land of the plain. this city is near to flee to. who were pledged to marry his daughters. and she became my wife.Genesis 19 16 Genesis 20 12 The men said to Lot. his wife’s hand. and he will pray for you. Dwell where it pleases you. and your two daughters who are here. ‘He is my brother. when God caused me to wander from my father’s house.” Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. I know that in the integrity of your heart you have done this.a 23 The sun had risen on the earth when Lot came to Zoar. and that which grew on the ground. and said to him. nor when she arose. that you have done this thing?” 11 Abraham said. and spoke to his sons-in-law. and sent Lot out of the middle of the overthrow. your daughters. He said.” But he seemed to his sons-in-law to be joking. “He is my brother. ‘This is your kindness which you shall show to me. and his two daughters with him. when he overthrew the cities in which Lot lived. that I said to her. 36 Thus both of Lot’s daughters were with child by their father.” 16 To Sarah he said. for he was afraid to live in Zoar.” 16 But he lingered. He didn’t know when she lay down. and we will lie with him. tonight. 30 Lot went up out of Zoar. and called all his servants. and said to him. Escape to the mountains. that we may preserve our father’s seed. lest you be consumed in the iniquity of the city. and they took him out. “Behold.” 14 Lot went out. 34 It came to pass on the next day. but not the daughter of my mother. then the angels hurried Lot. and his two daughters’ hands. “Because I thought. and it is a little one. when they had taken them out. even she herself. escape there. 13 It happened. my land is before you. 26 But his wife looked back from behind him. I lay last night with my father. his wife. and my soul will live. 38 The younger also bore a son. 17 It came to pass. and named him Moab. 7 Now therefore. that the firstborn said to the younger. The men were very scared. 19 See now. bring them out of the place: 13 for we will destroy this place. and looked. and set him outside of the city. “Get up! Take your wife. and don’t stay anywhere in the plain. For he is a prophet.”’” 14 Abimelech took sheep and cattle. You go in.” 35 They made their father drink wine that night also. “What did you see.” 6 God said to him in the dream. and lie with him. know for sure that you will die. “Behold. 25 He overthrew those cities. 20 See now. “She is my sister. ‘Surely the fear of God is not in this place. Therefore I didn’t allow you to touch her. and restored Sarah. restore the man’s wife. I have given your 20 20 20 20 1 Abraham 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 a 19:22 Zoar means “little. and called his name Ben Ammi. “Yes. to him. For she is a man’s wife. male servants and female servants. Oh let me escape there (isn’t it a little one?). my lord. He lived in a cave with his two daughters. 2 Abraham said about Sarah his wife. 9 Then Abimelech called Abraham.’ 12 Besides. “Behold. “Oh. when God destroyed the cities of the plain.

He lived in the wilderness. the Everlasting God. and rose up. and lifted up her voice. Offer him there for a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I will tell you of. “Who would have said to Abraham. For she said. We will worship. mocking. and to the land in which you have lived as a foreigner. that it may be a witness to me. until today. 13 I will also make a nation of the son of the handmaid. and gave it to Hagar.” 14 Abraham rose up early in the morning. because of Sarah. 9 Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian. 3 Abraham called his son who was born to him. “God has made me laugh. and gave her the child. the captain of his army. 32 So they made a covenant at Beersheba.” She sat over against him. She went. and said.” 31 Therefore he called that place Beersheba. 15 The water in the bottle was spent. even Isaac. and was weaned. that Abimelech and Phicol the captain of his army spoke to Abraham. swear to me here by God that you will not deal falsely with me. You didn’t tell me. “You shall take these seven ewe lambs from my hand. and Isaac his son. and hold him in your hand. your only son. and go into the land of Moriah. nor with my son.” 24 Abraham said. 6 Sarah said. and because of your handmaid. was born to him.” 7 She said. it is for you a covering of the eyes to all that are with you. and went to the place of which God had told him.” . and saddled his donkey. 5 Abraham said to his young men. listen to her voice. 20 God was with the boy. and became. The angel of God called to Hagar out of the sky. and gave the boy drink. neither did I hear of it. that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age. Abimelech rose up with Phicol. about a bow shot away. and saw the place far off. In front of all you are vindicated.” He said. 12 God said to Abraham. and wept.” 2 He said. and his female servants. 23 Now. whom she had borne to Abraham. He split the wood for the burnt offering. 16 She went and sat down opposite him. “God is with you in all that you do. “Here is the fire and the wood. Hagar? Don’t be afraid. “What do these seven ewe lambs which you have set by themselves mean?” 30 He said.” 8 The child grew. at the set time of which God had spoken to him. Those two made a covenant. because he is your seed. “What ails you. Isaac. which Abimelech’s servants had violently taken away. Isaac. But according to the kindness that I have done to you. and gave them to Abimelech. They both went together.” 17 Abraham prayed to God. and bore Abraham a son in his old age. a 4 Abraham circumcised his son. The boy and I will go yonder. and took two of his young men with him. and took bread and a bottle of water. and said to him. He took in his hand the fire and the knife. 10 Therefore she said to Abraham. and said to her. “Cast out this handmaid and her son! For the son of this handmaid will not be heir with my son.b because they both swore there. “Don’t let me see the death of the child. putting it on her shoulder. For from Isaac will your seed be called. “Don’t let it be grievous in your sight because of the boy. 4 On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes. and called there on the name of Yahweh.” 3 Abraham rose early in the morning. that God tested Abraham. 7 Isaac spoke to Abraham his father. Isaac. 18 Get up.” 25 Abraham complained to Abimelech because of a water well. “Here I am.” 11 The thing was very grievous in Abraham’s sight on account of his son. nor with my son’s son. 21 21 21 1 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 happened after these things. “My father?” He said. 29 Abimelech said to Abraham. and he grew. therefore.” 6 Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son.” 27 Abraham took sheep and cattle. Behold. 21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran. God healed Abimelech. lift up the boy. For God has heard the voice of the boy where he is. For I will make him a great nation. “I don’t know who has done this thing. as God had commanded him. and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba. a good way off. In all that Sarah says to you. Everyone who hears will laugh with me. “Now take your son. 34 Abraham lived as a foreigner in the land of the Philistines many days.” 19 God opened her eyes. an archer. and they returned into the land of the Philistines. “I will swear. whom you love. 17 God heard the voice of the boy. 26 Abimelech said. She departed. 20 20 20 Yahweh visited Sarah as he had said. and sent her away. and she saw a well of water. Isaac. 28 Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves. Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. “Stay here with the donkey. when he was eight days old. and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. filled the bottle with water. and come back to you. His mother took a wife for him out of the land of Egypt. 2 Sarah conceived. and Yahweh did to Sarah as he had spoken.Genesis 20 17 Genesis 22 brother a thousand pieces of silver. 22 It happened at that time. 5 Abraham was one hundred years old when his son. my son. “Abraham!” He said. that I have dug this well. and they bore children. but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” 22 22 22 22 1 It 22 22 22 22 a b 21:3 Isaac means “He laughs. “Here I am. 33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba. and his wife. you shall do to me. 18 For Yahweh had closed up tight all the wombs of the house of Abimelech. saying. as he grew up.” 21:31 Beersheba can mean “well of the oath” or “well of seven. whom Sarah bore to him.

Yahweh had blessed Abraham in all things. Abraham’s brother. Abraham came to mourn for Sarah. and I will bury my dead there. Take it from me. neither do anything to him.

Hebron). 17 that I will bless you greatly. 8 He talked with them. in the land of Canaan. 20 The field. which is in the end of his field. “Behold.” 7 Abraham rose up. Your seed will possess the gate of his enemies. bound Isaac his son. Jidlaph. 18 In your seed will all the nations of the earth be blessed. my lord. Kemuel the father of Aram. that I may bury my dead out of my sight. and entreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar. and offered him up for a burnt offering instead of his son.” 10 Now Ephron was sitting in the middle of the children of Heth. Yahweh-Seeing . 3 I will make you swear by Yahweh.” 23 Bethuel became the father of Rebekah. “Don’t lay your hand on the boy. 16 and said. Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver which he had named in the audience of the children of Heth.” 5 The servant said to him. and I will multiply your seed greatly like the stars of the heavens.” So they both went together. Buz his brother. which he has. 2 Abraham said to his servant.” 13 Abraham lifted up his eyes. Bury your dead. who ruled over all that he had. and well stricken in age. Abraham!” He said. your only son.” 15 The angel of Yahweh called to Abraham a second time out of the sky. four hundred shekels of silver. and to my relatives. Milcah. 4 “I am a stranger and a foreigner living with you. 10 Abraham stretched out his hand. 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 Sarah lived one hundred twenty-seven years. 2 Sarah died in Kiriath Arba (the same is Hebron). also bore Tebah. Abraham went and took the ram. “What if the woman isn’t willing to follow me to this land? Must I bring your son again to the land you came from?” 24 24 24 24 1 Abraham 24 24 a 22:14 or. Bury your dead in the best of our tombs. were deeded to Abraham for a possession of a burying place by the children of Heth. 11 “No. your only son. since you have not withheld your son. were deeded 18 to Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth. among whom I live. before all who went in at the gate of his city. 3 Abraham rose up from before his dead.

This was the length of Sarah’s life. “Please put your hand under my thigh. please hear me. saying. 13 He spoke to Ephron in the audience of the people of the land. “Abraham. hear me. even to the children of Heth. and I give you the cave that is in it. Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre (that is. and they rose up and went together to Beersheba. and have not withheld your son.

By the life of Pharaoh. for I fear God. “Go to Joseph. so will your words be verified. the sons of one man in the land of Canaan. 36 The food will be for a store to the land against the seven years of famine. and not die.” 5 The sons of Israel came to buy among those who came. and you won’t die. 11 We are all one man’s sons. “From the land of Canaan to buy food. because the famine was severe in all the earth. 44 Pharaoh said to Joseph. and let them keep it.” 41 Pharaoh said to Joseph.” . and spoke roughly with them. for he said. saying.” he said. 43 and he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had.

Joseph’s brother. to buy grain. and you shall be bound.” 53 The seven years of plenty. but acted like a stranger to them. which was around every city. “Didn’t I 42 42 42 1 Now 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 42 a b 41:51 “Manasseh” sounds like the Hebrew for “forget. 16 Send one of you. and in the eyes of all his servants. “Why do you look at one another?” 2 He said. and sold to the Egyptians.” 22 Reuben answered them. 7 Joseph saw his brothers. and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field. in that we saw the distress of his soul. Joseph’s brothers came. that the land not perish through the famine. I have set you over all the land of Egypt. Joseph opened all the store houses. and let him get your brother. 48 He gathered up all the food of the seven years which were in the land of Egypt.” 41:52 “Ephraim” sounds like the Hebrew for “twice fruitful.” 17 He put them all together into custody for three days. then let one of your brothers be bound in your prison. my lord. or else by the life of Pharaoh surely you are spies. do. carry grain for the famine of your houses. so that we may live. 50 To Joseph were born two sons before the year of famine came. but you have come to see the nakedness of the land!” 13 They said. 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 41 Jacob saw that there was grain in Egypt. for it was without number. and said to them. What he says to you. with his brothers. 6 Joseph was the governor over the land.” 42 Pharaoh took off his signet ring from his hand. 49 Joseph laid up grain as the sand of the sea. and arrayed him in robes of fine linen. to Joseph. the people cried to Pharaoh for bread.” 3 Joseph’s ten brothers went down to buy grain from Egypt.” 37 The thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh. for the famine was in the land of Canaan. very much. 47 In the seven plenteous years the earth produced abundantly. 21 They said one to another. that your words may be tested. “Do this. and behold. 35 Let them gather all the food of these good years that come. and lay up grain under the hand of Pharaoh for food in the cities. “Can we find such a one as this. 40 You shall be over my house. just as Joseph had said. 34 Let Pharaoh do this. but you go. and went throughout all the land of Egypt.

If I am bereaved of my children. said to them. spoke roughly with us.” 23 They didn’t know that Joseph understood them. it is in my sack!” Their hearts failed them. “Kill my two sons. We are no spies. 20 and said. we indeed came down the first time to buy food. and butcher an animal.Genesis 42 34 Genesis 43 tell you. one is no more. ‘Is your father still alive?

Behold. 16 When Joseph saw Benjamin with them. “The man solemnly warned us. a little honey. “Go again. and go your way. each man’s money was in the mouth of his sack. and take grain for the famine of your houses. but that you are honest men.’” 6 Israel said. All these things are against me. then do this. From my hand will you require him. and the youngest is this day with our father in the land of Canaan. saying. we’re brought in. unless your brother is with you. 13 Take your brother also. Then I will know that you are not spies. and gave them water. 28 He said to his brothers. and they turned trembling one to another. his blood is required. I am bereaved. I received your money. the lord of the land. Your God. unless your brother is with you. 25 Then Joseph gave a command to fill their bags with grain. 31 We said to him. ‘We are honest men. said to us. and he only is left. each man’s bundle of money was in his sack. he saw his money. So I will deliver your brother to you. “The man asked directly concerning ourselves. ‘You shall not see my face. went down to Egypt. 9 I’ll be collateral for him. Simeon is no more. “Why did you treat me so badly. their father said to them. and they said. so that we may live. We don’t know who put our money in our sacks. and took us for spies of the country. and behold. that he may seek occasion against us. “Bring the men into the house. 12 and take double money in your hand. “Oh. my lord. our money in full weight. for his brother is dead. and prepare. ‘By this I will know that you are honest men: leave one of your brothers with me. and we’ll get up and go. and take back the money that was returned in the mouth of your sacks. “You have bereaved me of my children!

Is there any way we could know that he would say. ‘Bring your brother down?’” 8 Judah said to Israel.

and said. “Fill the men’s sacks with food. “Far be it from me that I should do so.’ 22 We said to my lord. “Your servant. and we also will be my lord’s bondservants. and said. ask them. 14 Judah and his brothers came to Joseph’s house. when he sees that the boy is no more. and he was still there. ‘The boy can’t leave his father: for if he should leave his father. you will bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to Sheola. 43 43 43 43 43 43 43 43 43 43 43 1 He commanded the steward of his house. the silver cup. and the Egyptians. 34 For how will I go up to my father. 34 He sent portions to them from before him. 12 He searched. and let the boy go up with his brothers. The man in whose hand the cup is found. in the sack’s mouth of the youngest. is well. and the men marveled one with another. as much as they can carry. ‘You know that my wife bore me two sons: 28 and the one went out from me. follow after the men. ‘Go again. 13 Then they tore their clothes. for his heart yearned over his brother. “Why does my lord speak such words as these? Far be it from your servants that they should do such a thing! 8 Behold.’ 30 Now therefore when I come to your servant my father. and harm happens to him. ‘If I don’t bring him to you. and don’t let your anger burn against your servant.Genesis 43 35 Genesis 44 they washed their feet.” 30 Joseph hurried. 26 When Joseph came home.’ 21 You said to your servants. a bondservant to my lord. and he sought a place to weep. 25 Our father said. The cup was found in Benjamin’s sack. please let your servant stay instead of the boy. 2 Put my cup. a little one. buy us a little food. ‘We can’t go down. Your servants will bring down the gray hairs of your servant. because the Egyptians don’t eat bread with the Hebrews. ‘Have you a father.’ 24 It happened when we came up to your servant my father.” 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 44 a b 44:29 Sheol is the place of the dead. How then should we steal silver or gold out of your lord’s house? 9 With whomever of your servants it is found. for you are even as Pharaoh. “Oh. his brother. for they heard that they should eat bread there. let him die. They fell on the ground before him. and by which he indeed divines? You have done evil in so doing. 32 For your servant became collateral for the boy to my father. and put each man’s money in his sack’s mouth. you will see my face no more. He controlled himself. “Surely he is torn in pieces”. but as for you.’ 26 We said. “What deed is this that you have done? Don’t you know that such a man as I can indeed divine?” 16 Judah said. ‘Unless your youngest brother comes down with you. if the boy isn’t with me?—lest I see the evil that will come on my father. then I will bear the blame to my father forever. his mother’s son. “Is this your youngest brother. “God be gracious to you. or a brother?’ 20 We said to my lord. “Serve the meal.’ 27 Your servant. and the youngest according to his youth. “Up. the firstborn according to his birthright. my lord. our father. his father would die. 7 They said to him. both we. said to us. “Is your father well. and said. and came out.’ 23 You said to your servants. and a child of his old age. he will be my bondservant. He entered into his room. ‘Why have you rewarded evil for good? 5 Isn’t this that from which my lord drinks. If our youngest brother is with us. and he spoke these words to them. then we will go down: for we may not see the man’s face. we brought again to you out of the land of Canaan. 31 it will happen. with his grain money. that he will die. and each man loaded his donkey.” They bowed down humbly. and I haven’t seen him since. of whom you spoke to me?” He said. by themselves.” 32 They served him by himself. but Benjamin’s portion was five times as much as any of theirs. 44:31 Sheol is the place of the dead. they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house. beginning with the eldest. 31 He washed his face. and said.” 10 He said. 19 My lord asked his servants. and wept there. saying. 4 When they had gone out of the city. ‘We have a father. “Now also let it be according to your words: he with whom it is found will be my bondservant. 33 They sat before him.’ 33 Now therefore. 27 He asked them of their welfare. saying. and were not yet far off. the men were sent away. and I said. 29 If you take this one also from me. and you will be blameless. the money. my father.” He did according to the word that Joseph had spoken. Joseph said to his steward. which we found in our sacks’ mouths.” 18 Then Judah came near to him. Behold. with sorrow to Sheolb. they and their donkeys. When you overtake them. and he also in whose hand the cup is found. and his brother is dead. my son. . for that is an abomination to the Egyptians. we told him the words of my lord. 3 As soon as the morning was light.’” 6 He overtook them. and returned to the city. He is still alive. since his life is bound up in the boy’s life. ‘Bring him down to me. and them by themselves. They drank. saying. we are my lord’s bondservants. go up in peace to your father. and each man opened his sack. unless our youngest brother is with us. and the boy is not with us.” 11 Then they hurried. and saw Benjamin. and each man took his sack down to the ground. please let your servant speak a word in my lord’s ears. and he alone is left of his mother. and were merry with him. 29 He lifted up his eyes. that ate with him. the old man of whom you spoke? Is he yet alive?” 28 They said. our father. and bowed themselves down to him to the earth.” 17 He said. 25 They prepared the present for Joseph’s coming at noon. that I may set my eyes on him. and his father loves him. and ending at the youngest. He gave their donkeys fodder. an old man. “What will we tell my lord? What will we speak? Or how will we clear ourselves? God has found out the iniquity of your servants. 15 Joseph said to them.

Go in to Pharaoh. and on all your servants. and remain in the river only. and they did so. “This is the finger of God:” and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened. over their streams. and the Egyptians couldn’t drink water from the river. and the Egyptians shall loathe to drink water from the river.’” 10 Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh. 14 They gathered them together in heaps. and into the house of your servants. the magicians of Egypt. and he lifted up the rod. They shall remain in the river only. and he didn’t listen to them. and on animal. 4 But Pharaoh will not listen to you. and the frogs died out of the houses. 5 The Egyptians shall know that I am Yahweh. “Entreat Yahweh. behold. ‘Take your rod. “Let my people go. over their rivers. and out of the fields. that it become a serpent. “Tell Aaron. as Yahweh commanded.Exodus 7 44 Exodus 8 I will harden Pharaoh’s heart. all the dust of the earth became lice throughout all the land of Egypt. 18 The fish that are in the river shall die.’” 5 Yahweh said to Moses. ‘Stretch out your hand with your rod over the rivers. after Yahweh had struck the river. “In this you shall know that I am Yahweh.” He said. and the land stank. and over their pools. as Yahweh had spoken. until now you haven’t listened. 2 If you refuse to let them go.”’” 19 Yahweh said to Moses. 9 “When Pharaoh speaks to you.” 12 Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh. Behold. and from my people.” 9 Moses said to Pharaoh. ‘Stretch out your rod. and Aaron eighty-three years old. when I stretch out my hand on Egypt. and over the pools. “Tomorrow.” 10 He said. Behold.’” 20 Moses and Aaron did so. and struck the dust of the earth. and on animal. 25 Seven days were fulfilled. “Be it according to your word. and on your bed. that he take away the frogs from me. 22 The magicians of Egypt did the same thing with their enchantments. and the blood was throughout all the land of Egypt. 11 The frogs shall depart from you. and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. when they spoke to Pharaoh. and from your servants. so they did. my people the children of Israel. 15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was a respite. 15 Go to Pharaoh in the morning. 7 Moses was eighty years old. 11 Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the sorcerers. 12 For they each cast down their rods. and the rod which was turned to a serpent you shall take in your hand. as Yahweh had spoken. and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened. he hardened his heart. the God of the Hebrews. and you shall stand by the river’s bank to meet him. as Yahweh had spoken. and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt. and into your bedroom. and the frogs came up. 7 The magicians did the same thing with their enchantments. 17 Thus says Yahweh. and it became a serpent. and into your ovens. saying. and bring out my armies. He refuses to let the people go. and he didn’t listen to them. and covered the land of Egypt. in the sight of Pharaoh. and there were lice on man. 18 The magicians tried with their enchantments to produce lice. As Yahweh commanded them. and over all their ponds of water. “I give you the honor of setting the time that I should pray for you. as Yahweh had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants. and from your houses. and I will let the people go. 14 Yahweh said to Moses. and tell him. and Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod. 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 Yahweh spoke to Moses. out of the courts. and cast it down before Pharaoh. and on your people. and the river shall become foul. 13 Yahweh did according to the word of Moses. both in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone. and said. and strike the dust of the earth. and into your kneading troughs: 4 and the frogs shall come up both on you. and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. “Tell Aaron. that you may know that there is no one like Yahweh our God.” 6 Moses and Aaron did so. 23 Pharaoh turned and went into his house. and from your people. 8 8 1 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 . and the river became foul. over the streams.’” 6 Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt. and there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt. 16 You shall tell him. “Pharaoh’s heart is stubborn. and he didn’t even take this to heart.’” 17 They did so. and they shall be turned to blood. and for your servants. and didn’t listen to them. 24 All the Egyptians dug around the river for water to drink. “Tell Aaron. and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt. 21 The fish that were in the river died. he goes out to the water. that they may serve me. 8 Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron. which shall go up and come into your house. “This is what Yahweh says. ‘Perform a miracle!’ then you shall tell Aaron. out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. 16 Yahweh said to Moses. and he didn’t listen to them. ‘Take your rod. and on your people. saying. has sent me to you. did the same thing with their enchantments. and Moses cried to Yahweh concerning the frogs which he had brought on Pharaoh. that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt. and bring out the children of Israel from among them. that the frogs be destroyed from you and your houses. I will plague all your borders with frogs: 3 and the river shall swarm with frogs. but they couldn’t. 8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron. as Yahweh had spoken. and I will lay my hand on Egypt. There were lice on man. that they may become blood. and in the sight of his servants. that they may sacrifice to Yahweh. saying. ‘Let my people go. for they couldn’t drink of the water of the river. 13 Pharaoh’s heart was hardened. I will strike with the rod that is in my hand on the waters which are in the river. and cause frogs to come up on the land of Egypt. ‘Yahweh. 19 Then the magicians said to Pharaoh. They also. and brought up frogs on the land of Egypt.

Exodus 8 45 Exodus 9 20 Yahweh said to Moses. as Yahweh had spoken to Moses.” 29 Moses said. from his servants. shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes. “Rise up early in the morning. sacrifice to your God in the land!” 26 Moses said.” 23 Moses stretched out his rod toward the heavens. on man. the hail shall come down on them. 15 For now I would have stretched out my hand. and prayed to Yahweh.” 6 Yahweh did that thing on the next day. Yahweh rained hail on the land of Egypt. against your officials. 26 Only in the land of Goshen. and he didn’t let the people go. and tell him. and you would have been cut off from the earth. 25 Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron. 4 Yahweh will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt. Behold. and nothing shall die of all that belongs to the children of Israel. 17 as you still exalt yourself against my people. 14 For this time I will send all my plagues against your heart. and. the hand of Yahweh is on your livestock which are in the field. on the horses. and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh. Every man and animal that is found in the field. not one died. and said. and on your servants. from his servants. and sacrifice to Yahweh our God. tomorrow. there was no hail. 31 Yahweh did according to the word of Moses. and it became a boil breaking out with boils on man and on animal. behold. the God of the Hebrews. there was not so much as one of the livestock of the Israelites dead. ‘This is what Yahweh. such as had not been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. and shall be a boil breaking out with boils on man and on animal. and tell him. “Behold. both man and animal. that they may serve me. that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt. 2 For if you refuse to let them go. for the boils were on the magicians. hail. 22 Yahweh said to Moses. “It isn’t appropriate to do so. for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to Yahweh our God. if you will not let my people go. 23 I will put a division between my people and your people: by tomorrow shall this sign be.”’” 5 Yahweh appointed a set time. only you shall not go very far away. and on all the Egyptians. but of the livestock of the children of Israel.”’” 20 Those who feared the word of Yahweh among the servants of Pharaoh made their servants and their livestock flee into the houses. as he shall command us. that you won’t let them go. ‘This is what Yahweh. 21 Else. on the herds. and stand before Pharaoh. that no swarms of flies shall be there. There remained not one. and lightning flashed down to the earth. 13 Yahweh said to Moses. he comes out to the water. ‘This is what Yahweh says.”’” 24 Yahweh did so. and tell him. 7 Pharaoh sent. and stood before Pharaoh. and stand before Pharaoh. “Rise up early in the morning. “Go in to Pharaoh. 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 Then Yahweh said to Moses. and he didn’t let the people go. and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth. and lightning mixed with the hail. behold. and I will pray to Yahweh that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh. “Stretch out your hand toward the sky. behold. and there came grievous swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh. I will send swarms of flies on you. and hold them still. 18 Behold. to the end you may know that I am Yahweh in the midst of the earth. only don’t let Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to Yahweh. and Yahweh sent thunder. in which my people dwell. and also the ground whereon they are. the God of the Hebrews.” 28 Pharaoh said. and broke every tree of the field. “Let my people go. on the camels. that they may serve me. and on the flocks with a very grievous pestilence.” 30 Moses went out from Pharaoh. throughout all the land of Egypt. and into your houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies. 3 behold. I go out from you. says: “Let my people go. 9 9 1 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 . 16 but indeed for this cause I have made you stand: to show you my power. and from his people. and they shall die. saying. such as has not been in Egypt since the day it was founded even until now. 25 The hail struck throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field. tomorrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail. 12 Yahweh hardened the heart of Pharaoh. says: “Let my people go. 19 Now therefore command that all of your livestock and all that you have in the field be brought into shelter. and on your people. that they may serve me. “Tomorrow Yahweh shall do this thing in the land. 9 It shall become small dust over all the land of Egypt. that you may sacrifice to Yahweh your God in the wilderness. and Moses sprinkled it up toward the sky. 11 The magicians couldn’t stand before Moses because of the boils.” 10 They took ashes of the furnace. and let Moses sprinkle it toward the sky in the sight of Pharaoh. on the donkeys. and won’t they stone us? 27 We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness. “I will let you go. “Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace. 8 Yahweh said to Moses and to Aaron. that you may know that there is no one like me in all the earth. “Go. and isn’t brought home. and the hail struck every herb of the field. and he didn’t listen to them. 32 Pharaoh hardened his heart this time also. and into his servants’ houses: and in all the land of Egypt the land was corrupted by reason of the swarms of flies. and from his people. and all the livestock of Egypt died. where the children of Israel were. and on every herb of the field. 22 I will set apart in that day the land of Goshen. 24 So there was very severe hail. and against your people. 21 Whoever didn’t respect the word of Yahweh left his servants and his livestock in the field. Pray for me. and on animal. and struck you and your people with pestilence. But the heart of Pharaoh was stubborn. throughout the land of Egypt.

for we must hold a feast to Yahweh. 7 Pharaoh’s servants said to him. the east wind brought the locusts.” 22 Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky.” which could be more literally translated “Sea of Reeds” or “Sea of Cattails. and he said to them. and all the night. 17 Now therefore please forgive my sin again.” It refers to the body of water currently known as the Red Sea. even all that the hail has left. for they had not grown up. serve Yahweh your God. “Go. and prayed to Yahweh. and he said. and they ate every herb of the land. 11 Not so! Go now you who are men. They shall eat the residue of that which has escaped. and said. 30 But as for you and your servants. 21 Yahweh said to Moses. 23 They didn’t see one another.a There remained not one locust in all the borders of Egypt. or possibly to one of the bodies of water connected to it or near it. and said to them. he and his servants. behold. 19 Yahweh turned an exceeding strong west wind. Before them there were no such locusts as they.” 3 Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh. neither after them shall be such. I know that you don’t yet fear Yahweh God. I will spread abroad my hands to Yahweh. “Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts. 14 The locusts went up over all the land of Egypt. 28 Pray to Yahweh. which remains to you from the hail. if you refuse to let my people go. 33 Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh. 35 The heart of Pharaoh was hardened. and shall eat every tree which grows for you out of the field. 6 Your houses shall be filled. Don’t you yet know that Egypt is destroyed?” 8 Moses and Aaron were brought again to Pharaoh. but who are those who will go?” 9 Moses said. “Stretch out your hand toward the sky. for there has been enough of mighty thunderings and hail. Only let your flocks and your herds stay behind. 32 But the wheat and the spelt were not struck. either tree or herb of the field. and the thunders and hail ceased. and I and my people are wicked. “We will go with our young and with our old. 24 Pharaoh called to Moses. their God. so that the land was darkened. “As soon as I have gone out of the city. There remained nothing green. The thunders shall cease. “How long will this man be a snare to us? Let the men go. with our sons and with our daughters. that I may show these my signs in their midst. that he may also take away from me this death. that you may know that I am Yahweh. and of your son’s son. and my signs which I have done among them. and the houses of all your servants. that they may serve Yahweh. what things I have done to Egypt. and the flax was in bloom. and the houses of all the Egyptians. 5 and they shall cover the surface of the earth. and he didn’t let the children of Israel go. “Yahweh be with you if I will let you go with your little ones! See. and went out from Pharaoh.” 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10:19 “Red Sea” is the translation for the Hebrew “Yam Suf. the God of the Hebrews. and hardened his heart. and drove them into the Red Sea. 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 1 Yahweh said to Moses. 20 But Yahweh hardened Pharaoh’s heart. so that one won’t be able to see the earth. through all the land of Egypt. for that is what you desire!” They were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence. with our flocks and with our herds will we go. “I have sinned this time. They were very grievous. and said to him. serve Yahweh. and Yahweh brought an east wind on the land all that day. says: ‘How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go. for I have hardened his heart.” 31 The flax and the barley were struck. a . that you may know that the earth is Yahweh’s. and spread abroad his hands to Yahweh. and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. Yahweh is righteous. “I have sinned against Yahweh your God. but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings. and when it was morning. 15 For they covered the surface of the whole earth. that they may serve me. and you shall stay no longer. and eat every herb of the land. and serve Yahweh. and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left. even darkness which may be felt.Exodus 9 46 Exodus 10 27 Pharaoh sent. for the barley was in the ear.’” He turned.” 18 He went out from Pharaoh. Let your little ones also go with you. and against you. neither did anyone rise from his place for three days. 4 Or else.” 10 He said to them. evil is clearly before your faces. just as Yahweh had spoken through Moses. which took up the locusts. as neither your fathers nor your fathers’ fathers have seen. 2 and that you may tell in the hearing of your son. tomorrow I will bring locusts into your country. 16 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste. “Go. 34 When Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased. and the heart of his servants. and pray to Yahweh your God. 12 Yahweh said to Moses. he sinned yet more. and he didn’t let the children of Israel go.” 13 Moses stretched out his rod over the land of Egypt. “Go in to Pharaoh.” 29 Moses said to him. I will let you go. neither shall there be any more hail. that they may come up on the land of Egypt. that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt. “This is what Yahweh. and rested in all the borders of Egypt. and called for Moses and Aaron. since the day that they were on the earth to this day. and the rain was not poured on the earth.

2 Speak now in the ears of the people. and there shall no plague be on you to destroy you. 25 It shall happen when you have come to the land which Yahweh will give you. afterwards he will let you go. and every woman of her neighbor. 6 There shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt. and he wouldn’t let them go. and bow down themselves to me. nor shall be any more. 5 and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die. and all the firstborn of livestock. “Get out. When he lets you go. It shall be the first month of the year to you. 17 You shall observe the feast of unleavened bread. 8 All these your servants shall come down to me. and in the seventh day a holy convocation. until we come there. for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day. or one who is born in the land. and unleavened bread. they shall take to them every man a lamb. that 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 . a male a year old. on the houses in which they shall eat it. 13 The blood shall be to you for a token on the houses where you are: and when I see the blood. They shall eat it with bitter herbs. saying. that you may know that Yahweh makes a distinction between the Egyptians and Israel. “Draw out. “Pharaoh won’t listen to you. 16 In the first day there shall be to you a holy convocation. 11 This is how you shall eat it: with your belt on your waist. from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne. he will surely thrust you out altogether.” 10 Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh. 28 Pharaoh said to him. for in the day you see my face you shall die!” 29 Moses said. 3 Speak to all the congregation of Israel. and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel. and jewels of gold.” 3 Yahweh gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. I will pass over you.’” He went out from Pharaoh in hot anger. on the fourteenth day of the month at evening. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt.” 27 But Yahweh hardened Pharaoh’s heart. except that which every man must eat. until the twenty first day of the month at evening. saying. and you shall eat it in haste: it is Yahweh’s Passover. “Get away from me! Be careful to see my face no more. that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel. with all the people who follow you”. and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at evening. Not a hoof shall be left behind. 18 In the first month. and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to strike you. such as there has not been. and dip it in the blood that is in the basin. You shall take it from the sheep. and in the sight of the people. 5 Your lamb shall be without defect. “You must also give into our hand sacrifices and burnt offerings. 22 You shall take a bunch of hyssop. jewels of silver. 8 They shall eat the flesh in that night.’” 21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel. even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the mill. according to what everyone can eat you shall make your count for the lamb. and Yahweh hardened Pharaoh’s heart. according as he has promised. and when he sees the blood on the lintel. 20 You shall eat nothing leavened. and he didn’t let the children of Israel go out of his land. ‘On the tenth day of this month. that soul shall be cut off from Israel. that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt. your shoes on your feet. “This is what Yahweh says: ‘About midnight I will go out into the midst of Egypt. roasted with fire. then he and his neighbor next to his house shall take one according to the number of the souls. 12 For I will go through the land of Egypt in that night. and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. its legs and its inner parts. 19 There shall be no yeast found in your houses for seven days. 7 They shall take some of the blood. for of it we must take to serve Yahweh our God. and you shall keep it a feast to Yahweh: throughout your generations you shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever. and said to them. for whoever eats that which is leavened. 14 This day shall be to you for a memorial. Against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am Yahweh. when I strike the land of Egypt. 15 “‘Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. 11 11 11 1 Yahweh 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 1 Yahweh spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt. 26 Our livestock also shall go with us. you shall eat unleavened bread. and we don’t know with what we must serve Yahweh. Yahweh will pass over the door. 9 Don’t eat it raw. and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. 23 For Yahweh will pass through to strike the Egyptians. and kill the Passover. a lamb for a household. that we may sacrifice to Yahweh our God. In all your habitations you shall eat unleavened bread. and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt. 24 You shall observe this thing for an ordinance to you and to your sons forever. and take lambs according to your families. 2 “This month shall be to you the beginning of months. whether he be a foreigner. even the first day you shall put away yeast out of your houses. 9 Yahweh said to Moses. no kind of work shall be done in them. with its head. saying. nor boiled at all with water. but roasted with fire. against man or animal. or from the goats: 6 and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. 7 But against any of the children of Israel a dog won’t even bark or move its tongue. according to their fathers’ houses. and your staff in your hand. that only may be done by you. for in this same day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations by an ordinance forever. in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants. and after that I will go out.Exodus 10 47 Exodus 12 25 Moses said.” 10 10 10 10 10 10 said to Moses. “Yet one plague more will I bring on Pharaoh. 4 and if the household is too little for a lamb. and let them ask every man of his neighbor. I will see your face again no more. and on Egypt. “You have spoken well. both man and animal. 4 Moses said. but that which remains of it until the morning you shall burn with fire. and on the two doorposts. 10 You shall let nothing of it remain until the morning.

No foreigner shall eat of it. from the house of bondage. let all his males be circumcised. when Yahweh shall bring you into the land of the Canaanite. about six hundred thousand on foot who were men. The males shall be Yahweh’s. ‘It is the sacrifice of Yahweh’s Passover. to send them out of the land in haste. and you shall redeem all the firstborn of man among your sons. 6 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. 26 It will happen. and bless me also!” 33 The Egyptians were urgent with the people. as he swore to you and to your fathers.Exodus 12 48 Exodus 13 you shall keep this service. but all the firstborn of my sons I redeem.’” The people bowed their heads and worshiped. you shall not carry out anything of the flesh abroad out of the house. 45 A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat of it. that the law of Yahweh may be in your mouth. and there was a great cry in Egypt. ‘By strength of hand Yahweh brought us out from Egypt. No leavened bread shall be eaten. when your children ask you. then shall he eat of it. ‘It is because of that which Yahweh did for me when I came out of Egypt. and every firstborn which you have that comes from an animal. for it wasn’t leavened. being males. for by strength of hand Yahweh brought you out from this place. serve Yahweh. and for symbols between your eyes: for by strength of hand Yahweh brought us out of Egypt. and to the stranger who lives as a foreigner among you. It is mine. 14 It shall be. and spared our houses. so they did.” 50 All the children of Israel did so. for they said. 36 Yahweh gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. 41 It happened at the end of four hundred thirty years. because they were thrust out of Egypt. 18 but God led the people around by the way of the wilderness by the Red Sea. and the Hivite. when Yahweh shall bring you into the land of the Canaanite. Therefore I sacrifice to Yahweh all that opens the womb. he. neither shall you break a bone of it. even the same day it happened. a land flowing with milk and honey.” 3 Moses said to the people. 39 They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought out of Egypt. 4 This day you go out in the month Abib. 51 It happened the same day. and they asked of the Egyptians jewels of silver. for God said.” 34 The people took their dough before it was leavened. although that was near. “We are all dead men. This is that night of Yahweh. that you shall keep this service in this month. and shall give it you. neither had they prepared for themselves any food. and he shall be as one who is born in the land: but no uncircumcised person shall eat of it. then you shall break its neck. 5 It shall be. and the Hittite. so they did. 19 13 13 13 1 Yahweh 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 . 7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten throughout the seven days. 43 Yahweh said to Moses and Aaron. and the children of Israel went up armed out of the land of Egypt. as Yahweh had commanded Moses and Aaron. when Pharaoh had let the people go. and the Jebusite. that God didn’t lead them by the way of the land of the Philistines. 46 In one house shall it be eaten. that all the armies of Yahweh went out from the land of Egypt. 28 The children of Israel went and did so. saying.” 17 It happened. 11 “It shall be. when he struck the Egyptians. their kneading troughs being bound up in their clothes on their shoulders. and couldn’t wait. when Pharaoh would hardly let us go. in which you came out of Egypt. 2 “Sanctify to me all of the firstborn. both of man and of animal. and clothing. saying. who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt. and all his servants. 12 that you shall set apart to Yahweh all that opens the womb. 31 He called for Moses and Aaron by night. both the firstborn of man. herds. As Yahweh commanded Moses and Aaron. They plundered the Egyptians. get out from among my people. and in the seventh day shall be a feast to Yahweh. and no leavened bread shall be seen with you. 42 It is a night to be much observed to Yahweh for bringing them out from the land of Egypt. when you have circumcised him. so that they let them have what they asked. and then let him come near and keep it. 38 A mixed multitude went up also with them. and if you will not redeem it. and they return to Egypt”. as you have said! 32 Take both your flocks and your herds. 15 and it happened. with flocks. that Yahweh brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies. and for a memorial between your eyes. whatever opens the womb among the children of Israel.’ 9 It shall be for a sign to you on your hand. 48 When a stranger shall live as a foreigner with you. ‘What is this?’ that you shall tell him. and the firstborn of animal. 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 spoke to Moses.

“What is this we have done. They went down into the depths like a stone. 14 Yahweh will fight for you. and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was changed towards the people. before Baal Zephon. and on their horsemen. and I will exalt him. 3 Yahweh is a man of war.” 15 Yahweh said to Moses. 10 When Pharaoh drew near. and he will follow after them. 7 and he took six hundred chosen chariots. dashes the enemy in pieces. and said. that Yahweh looked out on the Egyptian army through the pillar of fire and of cloud. the children of Israel lifted up their eyes. his horsemen. 7 In the greatness of your excellency. saying. have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you treated us this way. and stretch out your hand over the sea. The horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea. and over all his armies. and overtook them encamping by the sea.

The wilderness has shut them in. He has become my salvation. and there was the cloud and the darkness. 11 They said to Moses. 29 But the children of Israel walked on dry land in the midst of the sea. over his chariots. and confused the Egyptian army. and behold. 25 He took off their chariot wheels. ‘Leave us alone. and Yahweh caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all the night. my father’s God.

You are not able to perform it yourself alone. and he went his way into his own land. 11 Now I know that Yahweh is greater than all gods because of the thing in which they dealt arrogantly against them. “All that Yahweh has spoken we will do. and the whole mountain quaked greatly.” 17 Moses’ father-in-law said to him. 18 Mount Sinai. 25 Moses chose able men out of all Israel. and the sound of an exceedingly loud trumpet. and his laws. for you warned us. and God answered him by a voice. and told them. and Yahweh called to him out of the mountain.” 23 Moses said to Yahweh.Exodus 18 52 Exodus 19 Israel. “Go down. 9 Yahweh said to Moses. and tell the children of Israel: 4 ‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians. to eat bread with Moses’ fatherin-law before God.

Whoever touches the mountain shall be surely put to death. but don’t let the priests and the people break through to come up to Yahweh. and let them wash their garments.’ These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel. 20 Yahweh came down on Mount Sinai. that the people may hear when I speak with you. and they washed their clothes. and bring the causes to God. Moses spoke. Aaron came with all of the elders of Israel.” 7 Moses came and called for the elders of the people. because Yahweh descended on it in fire. and had come to the wilderness of Sinai. warn the people. he said. took a burnt offering and sacrifices for God. that Moses sat to judge the people.

I have come out as an adversary. I will go back again.” 30 The donkey said to Balaam. it is a people that dwells alone.’” 18 Balaam answered the servants of Balak. and he struck the donkey with his staff. with his sword drawn in his hand. “I have sinned. defy Israel. curse Jacob for me. the king of Moab from the mountains of the East. and said to him.” 34 Balaam said to the angel of Yahweh. and turned aside before me these three times. and curse this people for me.

I took you to curse my enemies. and I will go. 41 It happened in the morning. for I didn’t know that you stood in the way against me.” 5 Yahweh put a word in Balaam’s mouth. to turn her into the way. that I may know what Yahweh will speak to me more. “Why have you struck your donkey these three times? Behold. that Balak took Balaam. and they came to Kiriath Huzoth. Have I now any power at all to speak anything? The word that God puts in my mouth. “Thus says Balak the son of Zippor. go with them.

I have come to you. and thus you shall speak. Behold. and his two servants were with him. “If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold.” 20 God came to Balaam at night. and saved her alive. and went with the princes of Moab. “No. “Build here seven altars for me. that you shall do. and said to him. “What have I done to you. 16 They came to Balaam. Please come therefore. but only the word which I speak to you. “Return to Balak. and Balak and Balaam offered on every altar a bull and a ram.Numbers 22 109 Numbers 23 15 Balak again sent princes. and he said to him. and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall. 19 Now therefore. 17 for I will promote you to very great honor.” 31 Then Yahweh opened the eyes of Balaam. “Must I not take heed to speak that which Yahweh puts in my mouth?” 23 23 23 23 1 Balaam 23 2 23 23 23 23 23 23 23 23 . and prepare here seven bulls and seven rams for me. and brought him up into the high places of Baal. 10 Who can count the dust of Jacob. and she said to Balaam. that shall I speak. for now I would have killed you. and saddled his donkey. and behold. 7 He took up his parable. on which you have ridden all your life long to this day? Was I ever in the habit of doing so to you?” He said. “Am I not your donkey. From the hills I see him. which is in the utmost part of the border. and shall not be reckoned among the nations. and he bowed his head. and I have offered up a bull and a ram on every altar. and whatever you say to me I will do. surely now I would have killed you. a wall being on this side. Unless she had turned aside from me.” So Balaam went with the princes of Balak. “Didn’t I earnestly send to you to call you? Why didn’t you come to me? Am I not able indeed to promote you to honor?” 38 Balaam said to Balak. Come. 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 said to Balak.” Balak did as Balaam had spoken. 4 God met Balaam. and all the princes of Moab. 40 Balak sacrificed cattle and sheep. 27 The donkey saw the angel of Yahweh. he was standing by his burnt offering. you have blessed them altogether. and said. 23 The donkey saw the angel of Yahweh standing in the way.” 21 Balaam rose up in the morning.

Whatever he shows me I will tell you. and she lay down under Balaam. Come. Balaam struck the donkey. to do less or more. and said. more. and he saw the angel of Yahweh standing in the way.” He went to a bare height. 25 The donkey saw the angel of Yahweh. 28 Yahweh opened the mouth of the donkey. if it displeases you. that you shall speak. “Stand by your burnt offering. 26 The angel of Yahweh went further. and went into the field. 22 God’s anger was kindled because he went. which is on the border of the Arnon. “Behold. 24 Then the angel of Yahweh stood in a narrow path between the vineyards. ‘Please let nothing hinder you from coming to me. with his sword drawn in his hand. and she thrust herself to the wall. and the angel of Yahweh placed himself in the way for an adversary against him. 3 Balaam said to Balak. and behold.

Yahweh’s anger was kindled against Israel. 13 ‘If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold. he lay down as a lion. “Balaam the son of Beor says. as a lioness.

His seed shall be in many waters. Curse them from there for me. Your nest is set in the rock. and I can’t reverse it. and shall strike through the corners of Moab. he didn’t go. behold. As a lion he lifts himself up. as cedar trees beside the waters. He has as it were the strength of the wild ox. 22 Nevertheless Kain shall be wasted. and shall afflict Eber. and hear!

Everyone who blesses you is blessed. “Balaam the son of Beor says. 9 He couched. Come.” 15 He took up his parable. but. and said. that the fierce anger of Yahweh may turn away from Israel. who shall live when God does this? 24 But ships shall come from the coast of Kittim. and having his eyes open: 5 How goodly are your tents. and said. while I meet over there.” 28 Balak took Balaam to the top of Peor. and offered up a bull and a ram on every altar. 4 Yahweh said to Moses. “What has Yahweh spoken?” 18 He took up his parable. ‘All that Yahweh speaks.

They shall afflict Asshur. and who sees the vision of the Almighty. “Alas.” 20 He looked at Amalek. 21 He has not seen iniquity in Jacob.

Balak said to Balaam. to meet with enchantments. you son of Zippor. The shout of a king is among them. “Your dwelling place is strong.” 30 Balak did as Balaam had said. the man whose eyes are open says. Yahweh his God is with him. perhaps it will please God that you may curse them for me from there. I go to my people.” 16 Yahweh met Balaam. and break down all the sons of Sheth. 19 God is not a man. that I must do?’” 27 Balak said to Balaam. saying.” 25 Balak said to Balaam. “I called you to curse my enemies. I can’t go beyond the word of Yahweh. 23 Surely there is no enchantment with Jacob. “Amalek was the first of the nations. I see him. shall break their bones in pieces. where you may see them. and took up his parable. “Return to Balak. Neither has he seen perverseness in Israel. while Israel does valiantly. and built seven altars. saying.

He has blessed. that he should repent. to the top of Pisgah. Neither is there any divination with Israel. and offered up a bull and a ram on every altar. 3 He took up his parable.” 10 Balak’s anger was kindled against Balaam. as aloes which Yahweh has planted. and drinks the blood of the slain. Balak. 16 he says. and the princes of Moab with him. He shall not lie down until he eats of the prey. I will take you to another place. to do either good or bad of my own mind. “Rise up. Balak said to him. and put a word in his mouth. “Build seven altars for me here. and said. A scepter will rise out of Israel. “Please come with me to another place. ‘What has God done!’ 24 Behold. 29 Balaam said to Balak. He has as it were the strength of the wild ox. and the Spirit of God came on him. and will he not do it? Or has he spoken.” 25 Balaam rose up. that he should lie.

So shall Yahweh do to all the kingdoms where you go over. and thick darkness. and encourage him. and called them. gates. that you may live. and northward. even to the river Jabbok. with all his people. and Lebanon. and its border. Behold. from Chinnereth even to the sea of the Arabah. and went up the way to Bashan. saying. 8 We took the land at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan. saying. even Bashan.” 23 I begged Yahweh at that time. and four cubits its breadth. Yahweh your God has destroyed them from among you. 27 Go up to the top of Pisgah.) 12 This land we took in possession at that time: from Aroer. to this day. For what god is there in heaven or in earth that can do works like yours. and southward. (The same is called the land of Rephaim. you only heard a voice. after his own name. 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 1 Now. besides a great many towns without walls. as we did to Sihon king of Heshbon. and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. and your little ones. 22 You shall not fear them. and the plunder of the cities. which I set before you this day? 9 Only be careful. all the region of Argob.” 21 I commanded Joshua at that time. and half the hill country of Gilead. with darkness. to Salecah and Edrei. you have begun to show your servant your greatness.) 15 I gave Gilead to Machir. as Yahweh our God is whenever we call on him? 8 What great nation is there. 18 I commanded you at that time. who shall hear all these statutes. sixty cities. with the women and the little ones. shall live in your cities which I have given you. and all Bashan. and go in and possess the land which Yahweh. when Yahweh said to me. gave I to the Reubenites and to the Gadites: 13 and the rest of Gilead. and bars. which is the border of the children of Ammon. for all the men who followed Baal Peor. 28 But commission Joshua. lest you forget the things which your eyes saw. and all his people. that has a god so near to them. 12 Yahweh spoke to you out of the midst of the fire: you heard the voice of words. that they may learn to fear me all the days that they live on the earth. Og the king of Bashan came out against us. for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples. 2 Yahweh said to me. which I teach you. 16 To the Reubenites and to the Gadites I gave from Gilead even to the valley of the Arnon. to the border of the Geshurites and the Maacathites. 10 the day that you stood before Yahweh your God in Horeb. and all Gilead. We struck him until no one was left to him remaining. “Assemble the people to me. 5 All these were cities fortified with high walls. the God of your fathers. and didn’t listen to me. 17 the Arabah also. that you should do so in the midst of the land where you go in to possess it. to battle at Edrei. 19 But your wives. the Salt Sea. 2 You shall not add to the word which I command you.Deuteronomy 3 122 Deuteronomy 4 1 Then we turned. that fine mountain. to do them. that has statutes and ordinances so righteous as all this law. which is by the valley of the Arnon.

Nine cubits was its length. and its cities. “Let this satisfy you. 11 (For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of the Rephaim. and lift up your eyes westward.” 26 But Yahweh was angry with me for your sakes. 7 But all the livestock. and your strong hand.

and shall corrupt yourselves. as at this day. even us. 5 (I stood between Yahweh and you at that time. you are drawn away and worship them. and you heard his words out of the midst of the fire. as you have heard.” 2 Yahweh our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.Deuteronomy 4 123 Deuteronomy 5 covenant. There is no one else besides him. which Moses spoke to the children of Israel. even the ten commandments. and you will be left few in number among the nations. 46 beyond the Jordan. by an outstretched arm. 48 from Aroer. and said to them. any likeness of what is in heaven above. to bring you in. when they came out of Egypt. for the Reubenites. 6 “I am Yahweh your God. your God. since the day that God created man on the earth. and from the one end of the sky to the other. even to Mount Sion (the same is Hermon). and possess that good land. that you will soon utterly perish from off the land which you go over the Jordan to possess it. and you shall have been long in the land. for you saw no kind of form on the day that Yahweh spoke to you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire. to provoke him to anger. and lay it to your heart. and make an engraved image in the form of anything. and all these things have come on you. Israel. 9 You shall not bow yourself down to them. by signs. in the land of Sihon king of the Amorites. and shall do that which is evil in the sight of Yahweh your God. out of Egypt. and by great terrors. nor serve them. which Yahweh your God gives you for an inheritance. or what is in the earth beneath. by war. Yahweh. and that I should not go in to that good land. 15 Be very careful. am a jealous 5 5 5 1 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 . as at this day. which neither see. forever. nor smell. and you shall find him. He will not fail you. which I command you this day. and his commandments. and live? 34 Or has God tried to go and take a nation for himself from the midst of another nation. 14 Yahweh commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and ordinances. and serve them. 49 and all the Arabah beyond the Jordan eastward. that it may go well with you. and that fleeing to one of these cities he might live: 43 Bezer in the wilderness. which Yahweh your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole sky.) saying. or that is in the water under the earth. wood and stone. 27 Yahweh will scatter you among the peoples. 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 Moses called to all Israel. to be to him a people of inheritance. who kills his neighbor unawares. and didn’t hate him in time past. which Yahweh your God gives you. that you may learn them. out of Egypt. but with us. On earth he made you to see his great fire. and make yourself an engraved image in the form of any figure. that you might do them in the land where you go over to possess it. 19 and lest you lift up your eyes to the sky. and brought you out with his presence. to give you their land for an inheritance. for the Manassites. nor forget the covenant of your fathers which he swore to them. in the plain country. therefore he chose their seed after them. who brought you out of the land of Egypt. and the land of Og king of Bashan. to show you the word of Yahweh: for you were afraid because of the fire. 47 They took his land in possession. when they came out of Egypt. neither destroy you. which he commanded you to perform. 18 the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground. and swore that I should not go over the Jordan. “Hear. 21 Furthermore Yahweh was angry with me for your sakes. the likeness of male or female. which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon. and make yourselves an engraved image in the form of anything which Yahweh your God has forbidden you. 41 Then Moses set apart three cities beyond the Jordan toward the sunrise. according to all that Yahweh your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? 35 It was shown to you so that you might know that Yahweh is God. who are all of us here alive this day. and that you may prolong your days in the land. 22 but I must die in this land. under the slopes of Pisgah. by a mighty hand. 30 When you are in oppression. by wonders. He wrote them on two stone tablets. 31 For Yahweh your God is a merciful God. that Yahweh himself is God in heaven above and on the earth beneath. with his great power. where Yahweh will lead you away. and the statutes. 38 to drive out nations from before you greater and mightier than you. which he made with you. which were before you. 24 For Yahweh your God is a devouring fire. 23 Be careful. 42 that the man slayer might flee there. that he might instruct you. the statutes and the ordinances which I speak in your ears this day. in the valley over against Beth Peor. and Ramoth in Gilead. 45 These are the testimonies. You will not prolong your days on it. when you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul. and with your children after you. I must not go over the Jordan. and Golan in Bashan. 8 “You shall not make an engraved image for yourself. 25 When you shall father children. even all the army of the sky. and children’s children. the likeness of any fish that is in the water under the earth. the work of men’s hands. for I. the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the sky. 20 But Yahweh has taken you. for the Gadites. 7 “You shall have no other gods before me. 37 Because he loved your fathers. 44 This is the law which Moses set before the children of Israel. 17 the likeness of any animal that is on the earth. There is no one else. 39 Know therefore this day. 16 lest you corrupt yourselves. 32 For ask now of the days that are past. out of the house of bondage. and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars. and the ordinances. even to the sea of the Arabah. whether there has been anything as this great thing is. 36 Out of heaven he made you to hear his voice. 40 You shall keep his statutes. 26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day. nor eat. in the latter days you shall return to Yahweh your God. but you shall go over. whom Moses and the children of Israel struck. 3 Yahweh didn’t make this covenant with our fathers. 4 Yahweh spoke with you face to face on the mountain out of the midst of the fire. but will utterly be destroyed. and brought you out of the iron furnace. the two kings of the Amorites. who lived at Heshbon. a jealous God. lest you forget the covenant of Yahweh your God. 28 There you shall serve gods. 29 But from there you shall seek Yahweh your God. and listen to his voice. and observe to do them. nor hear. and didn’t go up onto the mountain. or has been heard like it? 33 Did a people ever hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire. who were beyond the Jordan toward the sunrise. by trials.

Israel: Yahweh is our God. you. and with their children forever! 30 “Go tell them. to give you. 33 You shall walk in all the way which Yahweh your God has commanded you. who brought you out of the land of Egypt. that your days may be long. 17 “You shall not murder. which he has commanded you. You shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. 4 Hear. He added no more. in the land which Yahweh your God gives you. and that it may go well with you. 11 and houses full of all good things. and of the thick darkness. when you spoke to me. of the cloud. when Yahweh your God brings you into the land which he swore to your fathers. 19 to thrust out all your enemies from before you. that you came near to me. nor your ox. 14 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahweh your God. his field. 18 “You shall not commit adultery. that you may live. 3 Hear therefore. 9 You shall write them on the door posts of your house. or anything that is your neighbor’s. Yahweh is one. 7 and you shall teach them diligently to your children. which you didn’t plant. and that it may be well with you. that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you. 12 “Observe the Sabbath day.’ 31 But as for you. 6 6 1 Now 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 . “Behold. which you didn’t fill. and when you rise up. and the ordinances. that they would fear me. vineyards and olive trees. which they have spoken to you. 2 that you might fear Yahweh your God. 15 for Yahweh your God in your midst is a jealous God. and that you may increase mightily. which Yahweh your God commanded to teach you. then we shall die. of the gods of the peoples who are around you. or his donkey. as we have. and cisterns dug out. 14 You shall not go after other gods. 10 and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments. nor your stranger who is within your gates. 6 These words. that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it. 10 It shall be. which you didn’t build. shall be on your heart. If we hear the voice of Yahweh our God any more. out of the house of bondage. which you didn’t dig. 18 You shall do that which is right and good in the sight of Yahweh. and to Jacob. and hear all that Yahweh our God shall say. and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire. and the ordinances. and I will tell you all the commandment. and that your days may be prolonged. to Isaac. in a land flowing with milk and honey. and his statutes. 23 It happened. that it may be well with you. 21 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. which I command you this day. 16 “Honor your father and your mother. that has heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire. and we will hear it. and on your gates. as you tempted him in Massah. 20 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.” 32 You shall observe to do therefore as Yahweh your God has commanded you. Yahweh our God has shown us his glory and his greatness. all the days of your life. 29 Oh that there were such a heart in them. and keep all my commandments always. and when you lie down. or his female servant. and you shall eat and be full. even all the heads of your tribes. 11 “You shall not take the name of Yahweh your God in vain: for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. that you might do them in the land where you go over to possess it. and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. to keep it holy. to keep all his statutes and his commandments. to Abraham. as Yahweh has spoken. and gave them to me. nor your daughter. 8 You shall bind them for a sign on your hand. nor your female servant. Israel. and your son. 16 You shall not tempt Yahweh your God. visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children. and Yahweh your God brought you out of there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm. nor your male servant. 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 this is the commandment. with a great voice. while the mountain was burning with fire. 17 You shall diligently keep the commandments of Yahweh your God.Deuteronomy 5 124 Deuteronomy 6 God. and do all your work. and observe to do it. and on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me. that it may be well with you. in which you shall not do any work. the God of your fathers. They have well said all that they have spoken. his ox.” 22 Yahweh spoke these words to all your assembly on the mountain out of the midst of the fire. and when you walk by the way. which you shall teach them. and he lives. 13 You shall labor six days.” 28 Yahweh heard the voice of your words. and that you may go in and possess the good land which Yahweh swore to your fathers. nor your donkey. and lived? 27 Go near. lest the anger of Yahweh your God be kindled against you. and he destroy you from off the face of the earth. and shall swear by his name. 13 You shall fear Yahweh your God. and you shall serve him. nor any of your livestock. as Yahweh your God commanded you. “I have heard the voice of the words of this people. or his male servant. 25 Now therefore why should we die? For this great fire will consume us. and shall talk of them when you sit in your house. and the statutes. with all your soul. and Yahweh said to me. 15 You shall remember that you were a servant in the land of Egypt. you. and that you may prolong your days in the land which you shall possess. and his testimonies. and do it. We have seen this day that God does speak with man. which I command you. as Yahweh. and your son’s son. 5 You shall love Yahweh your God with all your heart. and tell us all that Yahweh our God tells you. great and goodly cities. He wrote them on two stone tablets. and with all your might. 26 For who is there of all flesh. ‘Return to your tents. that it might be well with them. nor your son. the statutes. Therefore Yahweh your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day. and your elders. as Yahweh your God commanded you. 12 then beware lest you forget Yahweh. stand here by me. 19 “You shall not steal. 24 and you said. when you heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness.

and hide themselves. 2 You shall remember all the way which Yahweh your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness. how can I dispossess them?” 18 you shall not be afraid of them. 11 You shall therefore keep the commandments. to know what was in your heart. and vines and fig trees and pomegranates. 8 a land of wheat and barley. until those who are left. 6 You shall keep the commandments of Yahweh your God. nor choose you. and the outstretched arm. the Hivite. You shall make no covenant with them. Yahweh has brought you out with a mighty hand. that he might bring us in. and allowed you to be hungry.Deuteronomy 6 125 Deuteronomy 8 20 When your son asks you in time to come. 26 You shall not bring an abomination into your house. in the land which he swore to your fathers to give you. of springs. the Hittite. and you shall utterly abhor it. 4 For he will turn away your son from following me. Yahweh your God has chosen you to be a people for his own possession. 5 You shall consider in your heart that as a man disciplines his son. 7 7 7 1 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 shall observe to do all the commandments which I command you this day. or among your livestock. and underground water flowing into valleys and hills. and to all Egypt. 21 You shall not be scared of them. on Pharaoh. and he would destroy you quickly. the wonders. the increase of your livestock and the young of your flock. You shall not covet the silver or the gold that is on them. to walk in his ways. the Amorite. 3 neither shall you make marriages with them. No one will be able to stand before you. 12 It shall happen. for it is a devoted thing. for our good always. you shall not lack anything in it. that he might humble you. dash their pillars in pieces. a land of olive trees and honey. 23 and he brought us out from there. nor take it for yourself. that he might teach you that man does not live by bread only. and will confuse them with a great confusion. until you have destroyed them. 23 But Yahweh your God will deliver them up before you. He will also bless the fruit of your body and the fruit of your ground. multiply you. You shall not give your daughter to his son. a great and awesome God. nor show mercy to them. 10 and repays those who hate him to their face. and because he desires to keep the oath which he swore to your fathers. which I command you this day. lest you be snared in it. and casts out many nations before you. 9 Know therefore that Yahweh your God himself is God. until they are destroyed. You shall utterly detest it. a land of brooks of water. which you didn’t know. the faithful God. He will repay him to his face. that they may serve other gods. 24 Yahweh commanded us to do all these statutes. a land whose stones are iron. neither did your fathers know. will he put on you. So shall Yahweh your God do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. Yahweh brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. 7 For Yahweh your God brings you into a good land. or not. which Yahweh our God has commanded you mean?” 21 then you shall tell your son. 20 Moreover Yahweh your God will send the hornet among them. the statutes. 22 Yahweh your God will cast out those nations before you little by little. “We were Pharaoh’s slaves in Egypt. 9 a land in which you shall eat bread without scarceness. saying. and out of whose hills you may dig copper. seven nations greater and mightier than you. so Yahweh your God disciplines you. the signs. 5 But you shall deal with them like this. 3 He humbled you. the Canaanite. the Perizzite. You shall break down their altars. whether you would keep his commandments. “What do the testimonies. nor shall you take his daughter for your son. the mighty hand. 25 It shall be righteousness to us. and become a devoted thing like it. 6 For you are a holy people to Yahweh your God. and go in and possess the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers. to destroy them. You may not consume them at once. 17 If you shall say in your heart. and burn their engraved images with fire. if we observe to do all this commandment before Yahweh our God. above all peoples who are on the face of the earth. and keep and do them. because you were more in number than any people.” 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 When Yahweh your God brings you into the land where you go to possess it. these forty years. 24 He will deliver their kings into your hand. There shall not be male or female barren among you. but will lay them on all those who hate you. and none of the evil diseases of Egypt. and the ordinances. but man lives by every word that proceeds out of Yahweh’s mouth. as at this day. the Girgashite. 15 Yahweh will take away from you all sickness. that Yahweh your God will keep with you the covenant and the loving kindness which he swore to your fathers. that he might preserve us alive. which you know. 25 You shall burn the engraved images of their gods with fire. and you shall bless Yahweh your God for the good 8 8 1 You 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 . 14 You shall be blessed above all peoples. perish from before you. to fear Yahweh our God. and on all his house. and fed you with manna. So Yahweh’s anger would be kindled against you. neither did your foot swell. and to fear him. 16 You shall consume all the peoples whom Yahweh your God shall deliver to you. who keeps covenant and loving kindness with them who love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations. 4 Your clothing didn’t grow old on you. as he has commanded us. by which Yahweh your God brought you out. and redeemed you out of the house of bondage. because you listen to these ordinances. 22 and Yahweh showed great and awesome signs and wonders on Egypt. to do them. the statutes. 19 the great trials which your eyes saw. and multiply. and the ordinances. 7 Yahweh didn’t set his love on you. Your eye shall not pity them: neither shall you serve their gods. 13 He will love you. for you were the fewest of all peoples: 8 but because Yahweh loves you. from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. “These nations are more than I. that you may live. your grain and your new wine and your oil. and cut down their Asherah poles. 10 You shall eat and be full. then you shall utterly destroy them. lest the animals of the field increase on you. to give us the land which he swore to our fathers. to prove you. and you strike them. He will not be slack to him who hates him. for Yahweh your God is in your midst. before our eyes. and the Jebusite. bless you. 2 and when Yahweh your God delivers them up before you. and you shall make their name perish from under the sky. for that would be a snare to you. You shall remember well what Yahweh your God did to Pharaoh. for it is an abomination to Yahweh your God.

and his ordinances. and have built fine houses. 23 When Yahweh sent you from Kadesh Barnea. that Yahweh gave me the two stone tablets. even the tablets of the covenant which Yahweh made with you. and make them perish quickly. saying. You had made yourselves a molten calf. “I have seen this people. or for the uprightness of your heart. saying. and Yahweh was angry with you to destroy you. because you wouldn’t listen to Yahweh your God’s voice. forty days and forty nights. get down quickly from here. and behold. 13 and when your herds and your flocks multiply. I neither ate bread nor drank water. Israel! You are to pass over the Jordan this day. and crushed it. and you forget Yahweh your God. 27 Remember your servants. “My power and the might of my hand has gotten me this wealth. 24 You have been rebellious against Yahweh from the day that I knew you. 16 I looked. do you go in to possess their land. 25 So I fell down before Yahweh the forty days and forty nights that I fell down. and the mountain was burning with fire. cities great and fortified up to the sky. 12 Yahweh said to me. They have made a molten image for themselves!” 13 Furthermore Yahweh spoke to me. nor at their sin. nor at their wickedness. you had sinned against Yahweh your God. to do you good at your latter end: 17 and lest you say in your heart. in doing that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh. 8 Also in Horeb you provoked Yahweh to wrath. He will destroy them. and threw them out of my two hands. 21 I took your sin. which your fathers didn’t know. and that he might prove you. 26 I prayed to Yahweh. with fiery serpents and scorpions. after Yahweh your God has thrust them out from before you. and burnt it with fire. Isaac. 11 Beware lest you forget Yahweh your God. in not keeping his commandments. 10 Yahweh delivered to me the two stone tablets written with the finger of God On them were all the words which Yahweh spoke with you on the mountain out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly. that you have brought out of Egypt with a mighty hand. to Abraham. because Yahweh had said he would destroy you. as at this day. he has brought them out to kill them in the wilderness. when you have eaten and are full. 19 For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure with which Yahweh was angry against you to destroy you. The two tablets of the covenant were in my two hands. and serve them. and at Kibroth Hattaavah. that Yahweh your God doesn’t give you this good land to possess for your righteousness. and said. and he will bring them down before you. 4 Don’t say in your heart. and that he may establish the word which Yahweh swore to your fathers.Deuteronomy 8 126 Deuteronomy 9 land which he has given you. for your people whom you have brought out of Egypt have corrupted themselves. to go in to dispossess nations greater and mightier than yourself. don’t destroy your people and your inheritance. 2 a people great and tall. as Yahweh has spoken to you. From the day that you left the land of Egypt. Don’t look at the stubbornness of this people. who brought you out of the land of Egypt. but for the wickedness of these nations Yahweh your God does drive them out from before you. grinding it very small. out of the house of bondage. so you shall perish. 20 Yahweh was angry enough with Aaron to destroy him. and worship them. for you are a stiff-necked people.’ 29 Yet they are your people and your inheritance. and to Jacob. for it is he who gives you power to get wealth. as at the first. and don’t forget. and behold. I neither ate bread nor drank water. 18 I fell down before Yahweh. 14 Leave me alone. the sons of the Anakim. and at Massah. “Lord Yahweh. But Yahweh listened to me that time also. and his statutes. and thirsty ground where there was no water. that he might humble you. 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 1 Hear. you have been rebellious against Yahweh. I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish. until you came to this place. I prayed for Aaron also at the same time. 6 Know therefore. 16 who fed you in the wilderness with manna. until it was as fine as dust. it is a stiff-necked people. 22 At Taberah. nor listen to his voice. 12 lest. and your silver and your gold is multiplied. and Jacob.” 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 . and broke them before your eyes. even the tablets of the covenant. and I will make of you a nation mightier and greater than they.” 15 So I turned and came down from the mountain. and all that you have is multiplied. and blot out their name from under the sky. because Yahweh drives them out before you because of the wickedness of these nations. “Go up and possess the land which I have given you. which you brought out by your great power and by your outstretched arm. 28 lest the land you brought us out from say. 20 As the nations that Yahweh makes to perish before you. that Yahweh your God is he who goes over before you as a devouring fire. 5 Not for your righteousness. if you shall forget Yahweh your God.” you rebelled against the commandment of Yahweh your God. to provoke him to anger. ‘Because Yahweh was not able to bring them into the land which he promised to them. 19 It shall be. because of all your sin which you sinned. So you shall drive them out. “Arise. which I command you this day. that you have redeemed through your greatness. 7 Remember. I threw its dust into the brook that descended out of the mountain. You had turned aside quickly out of the way which Yahweh had commanded you. and of whom you have heard say. how you provoked Yahweh your God to wrath in the wilderness. 11 It came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights. 14 then your heart might be lifted up. the calf which you had made. and you didn’t believe him. you provoked Yahweh to wrath. 15 who led you through the great and terrible wilderness. and because he hated them. saying. then I stayed on the mountain forty days and forty nights. to Isaac. whom you know. 9 When I had gone up onto the mountain to receive the stone tablets. “Who can stand before the sons of Anak?” 3 Know therefore this day. that he may establish his covenant which he swore to your fathers. that I may destroy them. and lived in them. “For my righteousness Yahweh has brought me in to possess this land”. Abraham. who poured water for you out of the rock of flint. They have quickly turned aside out of the way which I commanded them. and walk after other gods.” 18 But you shall remember Yahweh your God. 17 I took hold of the two tablets.

and the land doesn’t yield its fruit. 21 that your days may be multiplied. and to cling to him. his statutes. to their horses. 4 and what he did to the army of Egypt. always. to love Yahweh your God. and cut two stone tablets like the first. 20 You shall write them on the door posts of your house. 14 that I will give the rain of your land in its season. even to the western sea shall be your border. and when you walk by the way. and to love him.) 10 I stayed on the mountain. and there they are as Yahweh commanded me. You shall bind them for a sign on your hand. which your eyes have seen. that you came out of. and he shut up the sky. a land flowing with milk and honey. if you shall listen diligently to my commandments which I command you this day. according as Yahweh your God spoke to him. the earth. a land of brooks of water. 16 Be careful. your new wine. to this day. even you above all peoples. and you perish quickly from off the good land which Yahweh gives you. and Lebanon. is a land of hills and valleys which drinks water from the rain of the sky. 15 Only Yahweh had a delight in your fathers to love them. the ten commandments. and you shall dispossess nations greater and mightier than yourselves. and from Gudgodah to Jotbathah. and there he was buried. 9 and that you may prolong your days in the land. 3 his signs. I set before you this day a blessing and a curse: 27 the blessing. to stand before Yahweh to minister to him. 6 (The children of Israel traveled from Beeroth Bene Jaakan to Moserah. 6 and what he did to Dathan and Abiram. 4 He wrote on the tables. and they shall go in and possess the land. and watered it with your foot. how the earth opened its mouth. to walk in all his ways. the former rain and the latter rain. 8 At that time Yahweh set apart the tribe of Levi. 2 Know this day: for I don’t speak with your children who have not known. Israel. as a garden of herbs. and to bless in his name. 19 You shall teach them your children. 13 It shall happen. Yahweh is his inheritance.” 12 Now. 11 Yahweh said to me. and you shall eat and be full. and you turn aside. 24 Every place whereon the sole of your foot treads shall be yours: from the wilderness. the son of Reuben. and loves the foreigner. from the river. from the beginning of the year even to the end of the year. and the days of your children. There Aaron died. that you may be strong. and come up to me onto the mountain. 19 Therefore love the foreigner. 18 He does execute justice for the fatherless and widow. and you shall put them in the ark. and put the tables in the ark which I had made. 15 I will give grass in your fields for your livestock. 10 For the land. and went up onto the mountain. so that there is no rain. talking of them. the mighty. 22 Your fathers went down into Egypt with seventy persons. and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest’s office in his place. what does Yahweh your God require of you. and now Yahweh your God has made you as the stars of the sky for multitude. “Arise. and make an ark of wood. and their tents. his greatness. as at the first time. and every living thing that followed them. and to their chariots. who has done for you these great and awesome things. and be no more stiff-necked. to walk in all his ways. 25 No man will be able to stand before you. and worship them. his ordinances. as he has spoken to you. 8 Therefore you shall keep all the commandment which I command you this day. 22 For if you shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you. and he chose their seed after them. which Yahweh spoke to you on the mountain out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and Yahweh gave them to me. “Cut two stone tablets like the first. lest your heart be deceived.Deuteronomy 10 127 Deuteronomy 11 1 At that time Yahweh said to me. 5 I turned and came down from the mountain. and to all his land. and keep his instructions. and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul. and his commandments. and the awesome. and Lord of lords. where you go over to possess it. the river Euphrates. and how Yahweh has destroyed them to this day. which Yahweh swore to your fathers to give to them and to their seed. nor takes reward. and their households. 13 to keep the commandments of Yahweh. for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. he is God of gods. having the two tables in my hand. where you sowed your seed. which I command you this day for your good? 14 Behold. and you shall cling to him. as the days of the heavens above the earth. 7 From there they traveled to Gudgodah. 7 but your eyes have seen all of Yahweh’s great work which he did. to love Yahweh your God. and his statutes. that you may gather in your grain. 2 I will write on the tables the words that were on the first tables which you broke. Yahweh would not destroy you. if you listen to the 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 . to bear the ark of the covenant of Yahweh. the sons of Eliab. and on your gates. and to serve Yahweh your God with all your heart and with all your soul. and who have not seen the chastisement of Yahweh your God. Yahweh your God’s eyes are always on it. 12 a land which Yahweh your God cares for. until you came to this place. 18 Therefore you shall lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul. his outstretched arm. and serve other gods. isn’t as the land of Egypt. and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. 9 Therefore Levi has no portion nor inheritance with his brothers. you shall serve him. where you go over to possess it. 21 He is your praise. with all that is therein. according to the first writing. and swallowed them up. to do them. 20 You shall fear Yahweh your God. where you go in to possess it. but to fear Yahweh your God. in the midst of all Israel. how he made the water of the Red Sea to overflow them as they pursued after you. take your journey before the people. when you sit in your house. 11 but the land. 5 and what he did to you in the wilderness. and he is your God. as at this day. and your oil. to Yahweh your God belongs heaven and the heaven of heavens. 16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart. Yahweh your God will lay the fear of you and the dread of you on all the land that you tread on. which he did in the midst of Egypt to Pharaoh the king of Egypt. his mighty hand. 17 and Yahweh’s anger be kindled against you. forty days and forty nights: and Yahweh listened to me that time also. in giving him food and clothing. 23 then will Yahweh drive out all these nations from before you. 17 For Yahweh your God. in the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers to give them. who doesn’t respect persons.” 3 So I made an ark of acacia wood. the great God. 26 Behold. and when you rise up. which I swore to their fathers to give to them. and his works. 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 1 Therefore you shall love Yahweh your God. and go in and possess the land. and you shall swear by his name. and when you lie down.

your tithes. 15 Notwithstanding. your sacrifices. so that you dwell in safety. 16 Only you shall not eat the blood. 14 but in the place which Yahweh chooses in one of your tribes. 27 You shall offer your burnt offerings. and the blood of your sacrifices shall be poured out on the altar of Yahweh your God. 18 but you shall eat them before Yahweh your God in the place which Yahweh your God shall choose. 12 12 1 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 1 If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises in your midst you. and go to the place which Yahweh shall choose. and there you shall do all that I command you. 29 When Yahweh your God cuts off the nations from before you. and dwell in the land which Yahweh your God causes you to inherit. your male servants.Deuteronomy 11 128 Deuteronomy 13 commandments of Yahweh your God. “How do these nations serve their gods? I will do likewise. and your vows. 30 Aren’t they beyond the Jordan. to put his name there. nor your freewill offerings. 24 You shall not eat it. you and your households. your son. and you may eat within your gates. You shall pour it out on the earth like water. that it may go well with you. and all your choice vows which you vow to Yahweh. to go after other gods. which I command you this day. and as of the deer. 28 Observe and hear all these words which I command you. 17 You may not eat within your gates the tithe of your grain. near Gilgal. and with your children after you forever. but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day. and you shall say. 7 There you shall eat before Yahweh your God. 26 Only your holy things which you have. you shall take. saying. you may eat meat. if you do not listen to the commandments of Yahweh your God. 19 Be careful that you don’t forsake the Levite as long as you live in your land. and there you shall come. your tithes. “Let us go after other gods” (which you have not known) “and let us serve them”. there you shall bring all that I command you: your burnt offerings. You shall not add to it. 32 You shall observe to do all the statutes and the ordinances which I set before you this day.” 31 You shall not do so to Yahweh your God. 22 Even as the gazelle and as the deer is eaten. 11 then it shall happen that to the place which Yahweh your God shall choose. which he hates. on the altar of Yahweh your God. according to Yahweh your God’s blessing which he has given you. 32 Whatever thing I command you. nor any of your vows which you vow. to put his name there. 8 You shall not do after all the things that we do here this day. and the Levite who is within your gates. 5 But to the place which Yahweh your God shall choose out of all your tribes. there you shall offer your burnt offerings. The unclean and the clean may eat of it alike. every man whatever is right in his own eyes. as I have commanded you. when you shall do that which is right in the eyes of Yahweh. after all the desire of your soul. for the blood is the life. after all the desire of your soul. has given you to possess it. in which Yahweh your God has blessed you. that it may go well with you. and dwell in their land. or of your new wine. your female servants. your vows. which you have not known. 20 When Yahweh your God enlarges your border. and the curse on Mount Ebal. after that they are destroyed from before you. 6 There you shall bring your burnt offerings. to 13 13 13 13 . 3 You shall break down their altars. so you shall eat of it. You shall rejoice before Yahweh your God in all that you put your hand to. 3 you shall not listen to the words of that prophet. the flesh and the blood. is too far from you. to cause his name to dwell there. your daughter. your male servant. when you do that which is good and right in Yahweh your God’s eyes. and burn their Asherah poles with fire. and he gives you rest from all your enemies around you. as he has promised you. and on the hills. have they done to their gods. as of the gazelle. where you go in to dispossess them. and he gives you a sign or a wonder. You shall cut down the engraved images of their gods. that you shall observe to do. and you shall eat the flesh. 23 Only be sure that you don’t eat the blood. for they even burn their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods. 2 and the sign or the wonder comes to pass. which Yahweh has given you. the God of your fathers. 28 and the curse. 29 It shall happen. 9 for you haven’t yet come to the rest and to the inheritance. when Yahweh your God brings you into the land where you go to possess it. you shall seek his habitation. and that you not inquire after their gods. nor the wave offering of your hand. You shall not eat the life with the flesh. your female servant. your daughters. for every abomination to Yahweh. and the Levite who is within your gates. 25 You shall not eat it. or of your oil. and you shall rejoice in all that you put your hand to. on the high mountains. 4 You shall not do so to Yahweh your God. which Yahweh your God gives you. 11 11 11 11 11 11 These are the statutes and the ordinances which you shall observe to do in the land which Yahweh. because he has no portion nor inheritance with you. and with your children after you. you. 21 If the place which Yahweh your God shall choose. and dash their pillars in pieces. nor take away from it. the wave offering of your hand. in the land of the Canaanites who dwell in the Arabah. 12 You shall rejoice before Yahweh your God. behind the way of the going down of the sun. The unclean and the clean may eat of it. beside the oaks of Moreh? 31 For you are to pass over the Jordan to go in to possess the land which Yahweh your God gives you. and you dispossess them. of which he spoke to you. and the firstborn of your herd and of your flock. You shall pour it out on the earth like water. then you shall kill of your herd and of your flock. you. that you shall set the blessing on Mount Gerizim. 30 be careful that you are not ensnared to follow them. saying. and dwell therein. 13 Be careful that you don’t offer your burnt offerings in every place that you see. after all the desire of your soul. You shall destroy their name out of that place. for Yahweh your God is testing you. you may kill and eat flesh within all your gates. the wave offering of your hand. or to that dreamer of dreams. 10 But when you go over the Jordan. your sacrifices. your freewill offerings.” because your soul desires to eat meat. and under every green tree. all the days that you live on the earth. or the firstborn of your herd or of your flock. “I want to eat meat. and your sons. 2 You shall surely destroy all the places in which the nations that you shall dispossess served their gods. and you shall possess it.

4 These are the animals which you may eat: the ox. destroying it utterly. for he has no portion nor inheritance with you. and ask diligently. for cattle. or your daughter. that may you eat. 9 These you may eat of all that are in the waters: whatever has fins and scales may you eat. that 13 certain base fellows have gone out from your midst. and make search. if it is true. the heron after its kind. the sheep. and you shall not touch their carcasses. and shall store it within your gates.” which you have not known. and afterwards the hands of all the people. 24 If the way is too long for you. or the wife of your bosom. from the one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. Behold. nor listen to him. to cause his name to dwell there. You may give it to the foreigner living among you who is within your gates. the wild goat. 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 13 1 You are the children of Yahweh your God. shall come. 28 At the end of every three years you shall bring all the tithe of your increase in the same year. or of those who have the hoof cloven: the camel. 4 You shall walk after Yahweh your God. 7 Nevertheless these you shall not eat of them that chew the cud. 8 The pig. they are unclean to you. 11 Of all clean birds you may eat. saying. who brought you out of the land of Egypt. 19 All winged creeping things are unclean to you. “Let us go and serve other gods. because he has spoken rebellion against Yahweh your God. 16 You shall gather all its plunder into the midst of its street. Your hand shall be first on him to put him to death. nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead. 6 If your brother. because it has a split hoof but doesn’t chew the cud. so that you are not able to carry it. shall be put to death. It shall not be built again. and shall burn with fire the city. 7 of the gods of the peoples who are around you. 9 but you shall surely kill him. which Yahweh your God shall choose. the great owl. and the fatherless. the owl. 13 the red kite. with the edge of the sword. above all peoples who are on the face of the earth. 10 You shall stone him to death with stones. 14 then you shall inquire. the gazelle. So you shall remove the evil from your midst. 5 the deer. 27 You shall not forsake the Levite who is within your gates. or far off from you. 2 For you are a holy people to Yahweh your God. and show you mercy. 6 Every animal that parts the hoof. 23 You shall eat before Yahweh your God. you. neither shall you spare. saying. You shall not cut yourselves. that Yahweh may turn from the fierceness of his anger. fear him. and have compassion on you. 8 you shall not consent to him. because the place is too far from you. and the chamois. for you are a holy people to Yahweh your God. and have drawn away the inhabitants of their city. and you shall eat there before Yahweh your God. It shall be a heap forever. 12 If you shall hear about one of your cities. and has the hoof cloven in two and chews the cud. the goat. neither shall your eye pity him. to keep all his commandments which I command you this day. and obey his voice. among the animals. and bind up the money in your hand. you and your household. to do that which is right in Yahweh your God’s eyes. and multiply you. who brought you out of the land of Egypt. “Let us go and serve other gods. the vulture. and the bat. 17 the pelican. the horned owl. You shall not boil a young goat in its mother’s milk. or you may sell it to a foreigner. the antelope. 29 The Levite. and of your oil. that which comes out of the field year by year. with all that is therein and its livestock. and fear. 3 You shall not eat any abominable thing. 16 the little owl. neither shall you conceal him. and you shall serve him. Because they chew the cud but don’t part the hoof. the roebuck. and shall go to the place which Yahweh your God shall choose. They shall not be eaten. or for strong drink. the vulture. who is as your own soul.Deuteronomy 13 129 Deuteronomy 14 know whether you love Yahweh your God with all your heart and with all your soul. or that dreamer of dreams. nor your fathers. 12 But these are they of which you shall not eat: the eagle. the tithe of your grain. or your son. to set his name there. in the place which he chooses. to Yahweh your God. 11 All Israel shall hear. the falcon. that he may eat it. and the thing certain. and the foreigner living among you. because he has sought to draw you away from Yahweh your God. 18 the stork. the osprey. 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14 . near to you.” which you have not known. You shall not eat their flesh. or for wine. 21 You shall not eat of anything that dies of itself. 17 Nothing of the devoted thing shall cling to your hand. 20 Of all clean birds you may eat. 26 You shall trade the money for whatever your soul desires. when Yahweh your God shall bless you. that Yahweh your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do. and all every bit of its plunder. and the firstborn of your herd and of your flock. or for whatever your soul asks of you. that you may learn to fear Yahweh your God always. to draw you aside out of the way which Yahweh your God commanded you to walk in. the hawk after its kind. because he has no portion nor inheritance with you. 10 You shall not eat whatever doesn’t have fins and scales. and cling to him. and you shall rejoice. that such abomination was done in your midst. 14 every raven after its kind. or your friend. 15 you shall surely strike the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword. as he has sworn to your fathers. who are within your gates. and redeemed you out of the house of bondage. 15 the ostrich. 18 when you listen to Yahweh your God’s voice. and Yahweh has chosen you to be a people for his own possession. which Yahweh your God gives you to dwell there. 22 You shall surely tithe all the increase of your seed. the hoopoe. out of the house of bondage. the seagull. and shall not do any more wickedness like this in your midst. of your new wine. and shall eat and be satisfied. or for sheep. 5 That prophet. is unclean to you. the cormorant. the hare. and the widow. 25 then you shall turn it into money. keep his commandments. It is unclean to you. entices you secretly. and the rabbit. the ibex. the kite after its kind. the son of your mother.

if he tells you. when you let him go free from you. 21 You shall 16 16 1 Observe 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16 . which you sacrifice the first day at evening. From the time you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain you shall begin to number seven weeks. and he shall be your servant forever. 6 For Yahweh your God will bless you. and your eye be evil against your poor brother. the Levite. and Yahweh your God redeemed you. “The seventh year. 2 This is the way it shall be done: every creditor shall release that which he has lent to his neighbor. 11 You shall rejoice before Yahweh your God: you. You shall eat unleavened bread with it seven days. 19 You shall dedicate all the firstborn males that are born of your herd and of your flock to Yahweh your God.” because he loves you and your house.Deuteronomy 15 130 Deuteronomy 16 1 At the end of every seven years. 18 It shall not seem hard to you. remain all night until the morning. nor shut your hand from your poor brother. saying. You shall pour it out on the ground like water. your son. there you shall sacrifice the Passover at evening. your female servant. You will lend to many nations. you shall not harden your heart. your son. nor shear the firstborn of your flock. as the gazelle. 17 Every man shall give as he is able. 3 You shall eat no leavened bread with it. and in all that you put your hand to. 3 Of a foreigner you may require it. 10 You shall surely give. 21 If it has any defect. 14 You shall furnish him liberally out of your flock. in the feast of weeks. who are within your gates. He shall not require payment from his neighbor and his brother. and he cry to Yahweh against you. In the morning you shall return to your tents. or a Hebrew woman. for you came out of the land of Egypt in haste. the fatherless. You shall observe and do these statutes. 8 Six days you shall eat unleavened bread. and keep the Passover to Yahweh your God. 12 You shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt. and in the feast of tents. and the widow. Therefore I command you to surely open your hand to your brother. the foreigner. you. 13 When you let him go free from you. who are in your midst. your male servant. according as Yahweh your God blesses you. 11 For the poor will never cease out of the land. for he has been double value of a hired hand as he served you six years. 9 You shall count for yourselves seven weeks. 18 You shall make judges and officers in all your gates. and you give him nothing. you and your household. because he is well with you. you shall give to him. 2 You shall sacrifice the Passover to Yahweh your God. You will rule over many nations. in the place which Yahweh your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there. 19 You shall not pervert justice. as he promised you. and thrust it through his ear to the door. which Yahweh your God gives you. but you will not borrow. 23 Only you shall not eat its blood. As Yahweh your God has blessed you. to cause his name to dwell there. and the widow. You shall do no work with the firstborn of your herd. 20 You shall follow that which is altogether just. They shall not appear before Yahweh empty. 20 You shall eat it before Yahweh your God year by year in the place which Yahweh shall choose. of the flock and the herd. You shall do no work. according to your tribes. even the bread of affliction. to cause his name to dwell in. and perverts the words of the righteous. your daughter. The unclean and the clean shall eat it alike. 5 You may not sacrifice the Passover within any of your gates. for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise. and out of your wine press. and in all the work of your hands. neither shall any of the flesh. at the season that you came out of Egypt. out of your threshing floor. because that for this thing Yahweh your God will bless you in all your work. You shall not show partiality. and it be sin to you. then in the seventh year you shall let him go free from you. which Yahweh your God gives you. 16 Three times in a year all of your shall males appear before Yahweh your God in the place which he chooses: in the feast of unleavened bread. one of your brothers. the Levite who is within your gates. to observe to do all this commandment which I command you this day. but they will not rule over you. your hand shall release. you shall not let him go empty. and inherit the land which Yahweh your God gives you. for in the month of Abib Yahweh your God brought you out of Egypt by night. 17 then you shall take an awl. in the place which Yahweh shall choose. and shall surely lend him sufficient for his need. and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. 13 You shall keep the feast of tents seven days. 10 You shall keep the feast of weeks to Yahweh your God with a tribute of a freewill offering of your hand. a Hebrew man. 22 You shall eat it within your gates. 15 You shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt. or has any defect whatever. 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 the month of Abib. On the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yahweh your God. and to your poor. and as the deer. 14 You shall rejoice in your feast. after you have gathered in from your threshing floor and from your wine press. and serves you six years. because Yahweh’s release has been proclaimed. Yahweh your God will bless you in all that you do. and you shall be altogether joyful. that you may live. which you shall give. but whatever of yours is with your brother. “I will not go out from you. your male servant. 12 If your brother. your female servant. that you may remember the day when you came out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life. your daughter. and your heart shall not be grieved when you give to him. Also to your female servant you shall do likewise. 7 If a poor man. in your land. the fatherless. to your needy. because Yahweh your God will bless you in all your increase. 6 but at the place which Yahweh your God shall choose. You shall not take a bribe. which he lacks. 8 but you shall surely open your hand to him. Therefore I command you this thing today. according to Yahweh your God’s blessing which he has given you. you shall cancel debts. the year of release. is sold to you. is lame or blind. 4 However there shall be no poor with you (for Yahweh will surely bless you in the land which Yahweh your God gives you for an inheritance to possess it) 5 if only you diligently listen to Yahweh your God’s voice. is with you within any of your gates in your land which Yahweh your God gives you. the foreigner. at the going down of the sun. you shall not sacrifice it to Yahweh your God. is at hand”. 15 You shall keep a feast to Yahweh your God seven days in the place which Yahweh chooses. 16 It shall be. 7 You shall roast and eat it in the place which Yahweh your God chooses. 9 Beware that there not be a base thought in your heart. 4 No yeast shall be seen with you in all your borders seven days.

At the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death. to keep all the words of this law and these statutes. 20 that his heart not be lifted up above his brothers. “I will set a king over me. of your brothers. You shall not turn aside from the sentence which they shall show you. and say. 7 The hand of the witnesses shall be first on him to put him to death. 3 and has gone and served other gods. and dwell in it. or the moon. I will put my words in his mouth. 17 17 1 You 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 17 priests the Levites. that I not die. to the right hand. that he shall write himself a copy of this law in a book. between plea and plea. because Yahweh has said to you. when he sits on the throne of his kingdom. or a sheep. Neither shall you set yourself up a sacred stone which Yahweh your God hates. in the midst of Israel. who stand there before Yahweh. who has done this evil thing. 15 you shall surely set him king over yourselves. 2 If there is found in your midst. You shall set as king over you one from among your brothers. and of your oil. “Let me not hear again the voice of Yahweh my God. and the first of the fleece of your sheep. of your new wine. for that is an abomination to Yahweh your God. 10 You shall do according to the decisions of the verdict which they shall give you from that place which Yahweh chooses. from those who offer a sacrifice. that such abomination is done in Israel. 9 When you have come into the land which Yahweh your God gives you. or a sorcerer. Yahweh your God has not allowed you so to do. to the right hand. and the inner parts. 13 All the people shall hear. that whoever will not listen to my words which he shall speak in my name. 5 For Yahweh your God has chosen him out of all your tribes. in transgressing his covenant. and do no more presumptuously. the two cheeks. or an enchanter. to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom. 8 If there arises a matter too hard for you in judgment. and fear. he and his children. in not listening to the priest who stands to minister there before Yahweh your God. which you shall make for yourselves. like all the nations that are around me”. neither let me see this great fire any more. 2 They shall have no inheritance among their brothers. “You shall not go back that way again. you shall do. 7 then he shall minister in the name of Yahweh his God. So you shall remove the evil from your midst. to the end that he may multiply horses. 14 When you have come to the land which Yahweh your God gives you. even that man shall die. You shall inquire. one who practices sorcery. to do them. and between stroke and stroke. you shall not learn to imitate the abominations of those nations. 12 The man who does presumptuously. or the sun. or three witnesses. 4 and you are told. that he may learn to fear Yahweh his God. Behold. You may not put a foreigner over you. 3 This shall be the priests’ due from the people.” 17 He shall not multiply wives to himself. whether it be ox or sheep. Yahweh is their inheritance. him and his sons for ever. all the tribe of Levi. whom Yahweh your God chooses. and you shall stone them to death with stones. or a necromancer. 6 At the mouth of two witnesses. and go up to the place which Yahweh your God chooses. and he shall read from it all the days of his life.

I will require it of him. and you have heard of it. or a consulter with a familiar spirit. which I have not commanded. between blood and blood. a man or woman who does that which is evil in the sight of Yahweh your God. then you shall inquire diligently. “They have well said that which they have spoken. and afterward the hand of all the people.

They shall eat the offerings of Yahweh made by fire and his portion. or any of the stars of the sky. and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him. Yahweh your God drives them out from before you. or to the judge. 13 You shall be perfect with Yahweh your God. 12 For whoever does these things is an abomination to Yahweh. or a wizard. that they shall give to the priest the shoulder. and they shall give you the verdict. 14 For these nations that you shall dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery and to diviners. in addition to that which comes from the sale of his family possessions. nor to the left. and to the judge who shall be in those days. but as for you. where he lives as a foreigner. 16 This is according to all that you desired of Yahweh your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly. or anything evil. within any of your gates which Yahweh your God gives you. you shall give him. 5 then you shall bring out that man or that woman. or to the left. then you shall arise. 19 It shall happen. nor cause the people to return to Egypt. to your gates. to stand to minister in Yahweh’s name. in which is a defect.

So you shall remove the evil from your midst.” 9 It shall be. and in their houses. that all the people who are found therein shall become forced laborers to you. 18 18 18 Yahweh your God cuts off the nations. 7 Therefore I command you to set apart three cities for yourselves. as he has sworn to your fathers. You may use the plunder of your enemies. and has not taken her? Let him go and return to his house. in the land that Yahweh your God gives you to possess. then you shall besiege it. 9 if you keep all this commandment to do it. and they shall say. which I have not commanded him to speak. if the witness is a false witness. You shall not cut them down. “Hear. 2 It shall be. 15 Thus you shall do to all the cities which are very far off from you. tooth for tooth. shall stand before Yahweh.” 21 You may say in your heart. nor happen. 11 It shall be. and you succeed them. 6 What man is there who has planted a vineyard. when you draw near to the battle. and strike him mortally. that every man slayer may flee there. and will never again commit any such evil in your midst. or at the mouth of three witnesses. and didn’t hate him in time past. and divide the borders of your land. 12 then the elders of his city shall send and bring him there. even all its plunder. then you shall add three cities more for yourselves. 19 then you shall do to him as he had thought to do to his brother. that is the thing which Yahweh has not spoken. 12 If it will make no peace with you. and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood. Israel. 19 When you shall besiege a city a long time. who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. rises up against him. “What man is there who is fearful and faint-hearted? Let him go and return to his house. even though he was not worthy of death. 11 But if any man hates his neighbor. and has testified falsely against his brother. 13 Your eye shall not pity him. At the mouth of two witnesses. 3 You shall prepare the way. 4 This is the case of the man slayer who shall flee there and live. and to walk ever in his ways. or for any sin. leaving blood guilt on you. so that he dies. you shall not destroy its trees by wielding an ax against them. to fight for you against your enemies. 13 When Yahweh your God delivers it into your hand. for you may eat of them. the Perizzite. the Amorite. 20 Those who remain shall hear. and fear. he shall flee to one of these cities and live. and see horses. that they shall appoint captains of armies at the head of the people. 7 What man is there who has pledged to be married a wife. the little ones. and another man take her.” 8 The officers shall speak further to the people. 6 Otherwise. and all that is in the city. that it may go well with you. 14 You shall not remove your neighbor’s landmark. you shall strike every male of it with the edge of the sword. you draw near this day to battle against your enemies. between whom the controversy is. 17 then both the men. and another man use its fruit. the livestock. or who speaks in the name of other gods. but will make war against you. in your inheritance which you shall inherit. lest he die in the battle. and lights on his neighbor. that Yahweh your God gives you for an inheritance. 8 If Yahweh your God enlarges your border. hand for hand. lest his brother’s heart melt as his heart. neither be scared of them. 18 that they not teach you to follow all their abominations. lies in wait for him. 16 If an unrighteous witness rises up against any man to testify against him of wrongdoing. and overtake him. into three parts. strikes him mortally so that he dies. chariots. that he may die. that the priest shall approach and speak to the people. the Hivite. 10 This is so that innocent blood will not be shed in the midst of your land which Yahweh your God gives you for an inheritance. as Yahweh your God has commanded you. because the way is long. which I command you this day. and shall serve you. 10 When you draw near to a city to fight against it. which Yahweh your God causes you to inherit.

I have set before you this day life and good. “Why has Yahweh done thus to this land? What does the heat of this great anger mean?” 25 Then men shall say. and from there he will bring you back: 5 and Yahweh your God will bring you into the land which your fathers possessed. he it is who does go with you. with all your heart. that we may do it?” 14 But the word is very near to you. in your mouth. 5 Yahweh will deliver them up before you. and worship other gods. that you may dwell in the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers. when they see the plagues of that land. which were among them). whom he destroyed. which he made with them when he brought them out of the land of Egypt. and you will not hear. to Isaac. “I shall have peace. and shall obey his voice according to all that I command you this day. where you pass over the Jordan to go in to possess it. 6 Be strong and courageous.’ 3 Yahweh your God. and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his ordinances. and you shall do to them according to all the commandment which I have commanded you. and serve them. that you should say. 6 Yahweh your God will circumcise your heart. 22 The generation to come. and he will do you good. and have compassion on you. to walk in his ways. that you shall surely perish. “Who shall go over the sea for us. that we may do it?” 13 Neither is it beyond the sea. 15 Behold. the blessing and the curse. 4 Yahweh will do to them as he did to Sihon and to Og. but shall be drawn away. 19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day. nor be scared of them: for Yahweh your God.

Joshua shall go over before you. the God of their fathers. salt.

2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain. you have been rebellious against Yahweh. he will not fail you. They are not his children. to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands. Then he forsook God who made him. who bore the ark of the covenant of Yahweh.” 22 So Moses wrote this song the same day. in the feast of tents. 21 It shall happen. He surrounded him. because you will do that which is evil in the sight of Yahweh. He ate the increase of the field. while I am yet alive with you this day. that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel. and this people will rise up. 15 But Jeshurun grew fat. you heavens. your days approach that you must die: call Joshua. when many evils and troubles have come on them. They are a perverse and crooked generation. and evil will happen to you in the latter days.” 9 Moses wrote this law. 13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth. he it is who does go before you. and presented themselves in the Tent of Meeting. 16 They moved him to jealousy with strange gods. your elders. Let the earth hear the words of my mouth. and fear Yahweh your God. There was no foreign god with him. He caused him to suck honey out of the rock. and I will hide my face from them. 29 For I know that after my death you will utterly corrupt yourselves. until they were finished. 12 Yahweh alone led him. 20 For when I shall have brought them into the land which I swore to their fathers. to new gods that came up recently. for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they frame this day. 12 Assemble the people. and I will speak.” Moses and Joshua went. and learn to fear Yahweh your God. and they will tell you.” 14 Yahweh said to Moses. 6 Do you thus requite Yahweh. You have grown fat. just and right is he. 5 They have dealt corruptly with him. he bore them on his feathers. You have grown thick. 16 Yahweh said to Moses. 23 He commissioned Joshua the son of Nun. saying. and serve them. 10 He found him in a desert land. he will be with you. then will they turn to other gods. and delivered it to the priests the sons of Levi. and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you. his work is perfect. 15 Yahweh appeared in the Tent in a pillar of cloud: and the pillar of cloud stood over the door of the Tent. and established you. that I may speak these words in their ears. the men and the women and the little ones. you shall sleep with your fathers. as the showers on the herb. 11 As an eagle that stirs up her nest. because of their defect. in the waste howling wilderness. Jacob is the lot of his inheritance. neither forsake you: don’t be afraid. before I have brought them into the land which I swore. 9 For Yahweh’s portion is his people. that I may commission him. rams of the breed of Bashan. and I will forsake them. and they shall be devoured. 17 Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day. he spread abroad his wings. 7 Remember the days of old. and call heaven and earth to witness against them. and milk of the flock. 3 For I will proclaim Yahweh’s name. Of the blood of the grape you drank wine. as long as you live in the land where you go over the Jordan to possess it. not God. They provoked him to anger with abominations. 8 Yahweh. and put it by the side of the ark of the covenant of Yahweh your God. 17 They sacrificed to demons. 10 Moses commanded them. that it may be there for a witness against you. “Behold. where they go to be among them. saying. Ascribe greatness to our God! 4 The Rock. that flutters over her young. and break my covenant. and many evils and troubles shall come on them. he set the bounds of the peoples according to the number of the children of Israel. You have become sleek. for all his ways are justice: a God of faithfulness and without iniquity.” 24 It happened. for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land which I swore to them: and I will be with you. flowing with milk and honey. to gods that they didn’t know. 18 Of the Rock who became 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 . in the set time of the year of release. that this song shall testify before them as a witness. 11 when all Israel has come to appear before Yahweh your God in the place which he shall choose. and goats. when he separated the children of men. when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book.” 30 Moses spoke in the ears of all the assembly of Israel the words of this song. 26 “Take this book of the law. and he will show you. 13 and that their children. “Be strong and courageous. “Behold. Ask your father. and break my covenant which I have made with them. My speech shall condense as the dew. and kicked. and to all the elders of Israel. and play the prostitute after the strange gods of the land. who bore the ark of the covenant of Yahweh. and they shall have eaten and filled themselves. that they may hear. and taught it the children of Israel. neither be dismayed. 25 that Moses commanded the Levites. Consider the years of many generations. and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. and present yourselves in the Tent of Meeting. and that they may learn. “At the end of every seven years. and your stiff neck: behold. “Be strong and courageous: for you shall go with this people into the land which Yahweh has sworn to their fathers to give them. 19 “Now therefore write this song for yourselves. and said to him in the sight of all Israel. which your fathers didn’t dread. may hear. 14 Butter of the herd.

They kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the month at evening in the plains of Jericho. even the men of war who came out of Egypt. and said to him. who were beyond the Jordan westward. who were by the sea. whom he raised up in their place. saying. “What does my lord say to his servant?” 15 The prince of Yahweh’s army said to Joshua. The children of Israel didn’t have manna any more.” 17 Joshua therefore commanded the priests. 11 They ate unleavened cakes and parched grain of the produce of the land on the next day after the Passover. 2 Yahweh said to Joshua.” 3 Joshua made himself flint knives.

Yahweh magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel. 23 For Yahweh your God dried up the waters of the Jordan from before you. until we had passed over. 11 It happened. “Behold. and they feared him. until everything was finished that Yahweh commanded Joshua to speak to the people. 4 Seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark. and worshiped. “When your children ask their fathers in time to come. when Joshua was by Jericho. in the same day. 20 Joshua set up those twelve stones. which he dried up from before us. because they didn’t listen to the voice of Yahweh. after they came out of Egypt. for they were uncircumcised. 14 On that day. ‘Israel came over this Jordan on dry land. as Moses spoke to them. and encamped in Gilgal. and said to him. even all the men of war. as they feared Moses. and took up twelve stones out of the middle of the Jordan. but all the people who were born in the wilderness by the way as they came out of Egypt had not been circumcised. until we had passed over. 12 The manna ceased on the next day. 2 At that time. 24 that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of Yahweh. but they ate of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.” Joshua did so. and all the kings of the Canaanites. 3 All your men of war shall march around the city. “Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. until you had passed over. ready and armed for war passed over before Yahweh to battle.” Joshua fell on his face to the earth. and the half-tribe of Manasseh. 16 “Command the priests who bear the ark of the testimony. and the priests shall blow the trumpets. neither was there spirit in them any more.” Therefore the name of that place was called Gilgal. going around the city once. to the plains of Jericho. as before.” . “No.a to this day. saying. you shall march around the city seven times. when they were done circumcising all the nation. died in the wilderness by the way. saying. Joshua went to him. who were males. that he lifted up his eyes and looked. but I have come now as commander of Yahweh’s army. with its king and the mighty men of valor. which they took out of the Jordan. 13 It happened. 9 Yahweh said to Joshua. that the waters of the Jordan returned to their place. 6 For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness. or for our adversaries?” 14 He said. 10 The children of Israel encamped in Gilgal. after they had eaten of the produce of the land. and they are there to this day. 12 The children of Reuben. according to all that Moses commanded Joshua. “Are you for us. 9 Joshua set up twelve stones in the middle of the Jordan. that the ark of Yahweh passed over. On the seventh day. Yahweh swore to them that he wouldn’t let them see the land which Yahweh swore to their fathers that he would give us. when the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of Yahweh had come up out of the middle of the Jordan. that it is mighty. passed over armed before the children of Israel. “Take your shoes off of your feet. and the soles of the priests’ feet were lifted up to the dry ground. in Gilgal. as Yahweh spoke to Joshua. for the place on which you stand is holy. and went over all its banks. in the presence of the people. were consumed. 21 He spoke to the children of Israel. 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 1 Now Jericho was tightly shut up because of the children of Israel. in the place where the feet of the priests who bore the ark of the covenant stood. 4 This is the reason Joshua circumcised: all the people who came out of Egypt. and they carried them over with them to the place where they lodged.

“Shout. nor let your voice be heard. They shall come into Yahweh’s treasury. they have even taken of the devoted things. the son of Carmi. and they set them outside of the camp of Israel. whom Joshua sent to spy out Jericho. 13 The seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of Yahweh went on continually. Lord. going about it once. Lord Yahweh. and let the armed men pass on before Yahweh’s ark. “Cursed is the man before Yahweh. They did this six days. the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams’ horns before Yahweh advanced. 5 The men of Ai struck about thirty-six men of them.” The men went up and spied out Ai. and spoke to them. and all that she had. because they have become devoted for destruction. and gold. The hearts of the people melted. “Alas. The rear guard came after the ark of Yahweh. even it and all that is in it. that they rose early at the dawning of the day. “Get up! Why are you fallen on your face like that? 11 Israel has sinned. and fell to the earth on his face before the ark of Yahweh until the evening. Only Rahab the prostitute shall live. to Yahweh.Joshua 6 146 Joshua 7 that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn. and when you hear the sound of the trumpet. he and the elders of Israel. after that Israel has turned their backs before their enemies! 9 For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land will hear of it. “Go up and spy out the land. 26 Joshua commanded them with an oath at that time. so that the people went up into the city. what shall I say. on the east side of Bethel. as you swore to her. “You shall not shout. and blew the trumpets: and the armed men went before them. but let about two or three thousand men go up and strike Ai. Therefore Yahweh’s anger burned against the children of Israel.” 4 So about three thousand men of the people went up there. and they took the city. Only they put the silver. and have also stolen. 19 But all the silver. 10 Joshua commanded the people. Yes. The trumpets sounded as they went. and the priests blew the trumpets. for there are only a few of them. 12 Therefore the children of Israel can’t stand before their enemies. and trouble it. and all that she had. 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 the children of Israel committed a trespass in the devoted things. her brothers. 2 Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai. and his fame was in all the land. and the vessels of brass and of iron into the treasury of Yahweh’s house. which is beside Beth Aven. both man and woman. She lived in the midst of Israel to this day.” 11 So he caused the ark of Yahweh to go around the city. the son of Zabdi. they have even transgressed my covenant which I commanded them. and will surround us. 14 The second day they marched around the city once. to cause us to perish? I wish that we had been content and lived beyond the Jordan! 8 Oh. 18 But as for you. “Don’t let all the people go up. saying. 16 It happened at the seventh time. 15 It happened on the seventh day. and marched around the city in the same way seven times. and they chased them from before the gate even to Shebarim. and said to him. when the priests blew the trumpets. With the loss of his firstborn shall he lay its foundation.” 8 It was so. 12 Joshua rose early in the morning. 7 7 1 But 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 . 9 The armed men went before the priests who blew the trumpets. both young and old. and with the loss of his youngest son shall he set up its gates. and the people shall go up every man straight before him. of the tribe of Judah. Then they came into the camp. and the priests took up the ark of Yahweh. so would you make the camp of Israel accursed. I will not be with you any more. They also brought out all her relatives. They have even put it among their own stuff. 3 They returned to Joshua. and said to them. and cut off our name from the earth. and the wall of the city shall fall down flat. with the edge of the sword. It happened. because she hid the messengers that we sent. neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth. for Achan. unless you destroy the devoted things from among you. when the people heard the sound of the trumpet. and vessels of brass and iron. Then you shall shout. and struck them at the descent. “Go into the prostitute’s house. Joshua saved alive. why have you brought this people over the Jordan at all. and ox. you take of the devoted thing. until the day I tell you to shout. and the ark went after them. and also deceived. 21 They utterly destroyed all that was in the city. 6 Joshua tore his clothes. all the people shall shout with a great shout. What will you do for your great name?” 10 Yahweh said to Joshua. Joshua said to the people.” 27 So Yahweh was with Joshua. 25 But Rahab the prostitute. The trumpets sounded as they went. Yes. because she hid the messengers. Only on this day they marched around the city seven times. took some of the devoted things. and they put dust on their heads. who rises up and builds this city Jericho. every man straight before him. 22 Joshua said to the two men who had spied out the land. 7 Joshua said. to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites. They turn their backs before their enemies. that when Joshua had spoken to the people.” 6 Joshua the son of Nun called the priests. lest when you have devoted it. that the people shouted with a great shout. and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of Yahweh. her father’s household.” 7 They said to the people. “Advance! March around the city. and all that was in it. and brought out Rahab with her father. and lodged in the camp. and became like water.” 23 The young men who were spies went in. the son of Zerah. and bring out from there the woman and all that she has. and the ark of the covenant of Yahweh followed them. her mother. and donkey.” 20 So the people shouted. and blew the trumpets. for Yahweh has given you the city! 17 The city shall be devoted. and the wall fell down flat. 24 They burnt the city with fire. only keep yourselves from the devoted thing. Don’t make all the people to toil there. and sheep. are holy to Yahweh. the gold. and returned into the camp. saying. saying. she and all who are with her in the house. and they fled before the men of Ai. “Take up the ark of the covenant.

and brought him to Joshua. and Joshua went that night into the midst of the valley. but he didn’t know that there was an ambush against him behind the city. go up to Ai. even all the army who was on the north of the city. 19 The ambush arose quickly out of their place. 14 It happened. The tribe of Judah was selected. 17 There was not a man left in Ai or Beth El who didn’t go out after Israel.” Joshua stretched out the javelin that was in his hand toward the city. 2 You shall do to Ai and her king as you did to Jericho and her king. then they turned again. will approach to the city. when you have seized on the city. at the time appointed.’ So we will flee before them. 18 Yahweh said to Joshua. ‘Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow.’” 16 So Joshua rose up early in the morning and brought Israel near by their tribes. before the people to Ai. and they ran to the tent. it was hidden in his tent. and entered into the city. and were drawn away from the city. 26 They raised over him a great heap of stones that remains to this day. and all that he had. and pursued Israel. and killed the men of Ai. with the silver under it. It shall happen. he and all that he has. 15 Joshua and all Israel made as if they were beaten before them. 6 They will come out after us. until we have drawn them away from the city. they saw. and they brought them up to the valley of Achor. the son of Carmi. 19 Joshua said to Achan. that all Israel returned to Ai. and encamped on the north side of Ai. Therefore the name of that place was called “The valley of Achor” to this day. “Why have you troubled us? Yahweh will trouble you this day. the smoke of the city ascended up to heaven. 22 The others came out of the city against them. and went up. to go up to Ai. 23 They took them from the middle of the tent. The household which Yahweh selects shall come near man by man.” 3 So Joshua arose. 15 It shall be. the silver. his city. They hurried and set the city on fire. for Yahweh. Set an ambush for the city behind it. and all Israel with him. and brought them to Joshua and to all the children of Israel. The family which Yahweh selects shall come near by households. but Joshua stayed among the people that night. Take all the people of war with you. I have given into your hand the king of Ai. in the wilderness in which they pursued them.Joshua 7 147 Joshua 8 13 “Get up! Sanctify the people. “Stretch out the javelin that is in your hand toward Ai. 13 So they set the people. and sent them out by night. 10 Joshua rose up early in the morning. and this is what I have done. Behold. some on this side. and arise. and they burned them with fire and stoned them with stones. he and the elders of Israel. ‘They flee before us. 23 They captured the king of Ai alive. He brought near the family of the Zerahites man by man. except its plunder and its livestock. Joshua chose thirty thousand men. 12 He took about five thousand men. and drew near. and they had all fallen by the edge of the sword. his sheep. 24 Joshua. two hundred shekels of silver. 21 When I saw among the plunder a beautiful Babylonian robe. Israel. You cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the devoted thing from among you.” 22 So Joshua sent messengers. and some on that side. and all the people of war.” 14 “‘In the morning therefore you shall be brought near by your tribes. and all the people who are with me. his tent. and said. 8 It shall be. the robe. the mighty men of valor. and Zabdi was selected. 21 When Joshua and all Israel saw that the ambush had taken the city. you shall lie in ambush against the city. behind the city. until they were consumed. 18 He brought near his household man by man. like the first time. even the men of war who were with him. Behold. mustered the people. the God of Israel. and they went to set up the ambush. with his people. It shall be that the tribe which Yahweh selects shall come near by families. that we will flee before them. his donkeys. the son of Zerah. then I coveted them and took them. so that they let none of them remain or escape. the wedge of gold. his sons. 16 All the people who were in the city were called together to pursue after them. “There is a devoted thing in your midst. and the men of the city went out against Israel to battle. Don’t go very far from the city. that you shall set the city on fire. They struck them. saying. but all of you be ready. 11 All the people. please give glory to Yahweh. Yahweh turned from the fierceness of his anger. for Yahweh your God will deliver it into your hand. 17 He brought near the family of Judah. They left the city open. and stayed between Bethel and Ai. and he selected the family of the Zerahites. as at the first. and say. Behold. on the west side of Ai. and a wedge of gold weighing fifty shekels. You shall do this according to the word of Yahweh. 7 and you shall rise up from the ambush. and take possession of the city. They pursued Joshua. they are hidden in the ground in the middle of my tent. when the king of Ai saw it. and they ran as soon as he had stretched out his hand. and fled by the way of the wilderness. 4 He commanded them. took Achan the son of Zerah. The people who fled to the wilderness turned back on the pursuers. They laid them down before Yahweh. and that the smoke of the city ascended. that he who is taken with the devoted thing shall be burnt with fire. for they will say. 25 Joshua said.” 9 Joshua sent them out. for I will give it into your hand. that they hurried and rose up early. Tell me now what you have done! Don’t hide it from me!” 20 Achan answered Joshua. “Don’t be afraid. neither be dismayed. 24 It happened. because he has transgressed the covenant of Yahweh. before the Arabah. and their ambush on the west of the city. went up. “I have truly sinned against Yahweh. and took it. and they had no power to flee this way or that way. when they come out against us. Now there was a valley between him and Ai. and came before the city. and struck it with the 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 . 5 I. I have commanded you. and make confession to him. the God of Israel.” All Israel stoned him with stones. and Achan. and set them in ambush between Bethel and Ai. 20 When the men of Ai looked behind them. 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 1 Yahweh said to Joshua. “My son. his cattle. he and all his people. his daughters. and because he has done a disgraceful thing in Israel. Behold. and behold. was selected. with the silver under it. on the west side of the city. of the tribe of Judah. the God of Israel. “Behold. says. so they were in the midst of Israel. the son of Zabdi. when Israel had made an end of killing all the inhabitants of Ai in the field. you shall take for a plunder for yourselves. and his land.

These our garments and our shoes have become old because of the very long journey. 27 That day Joshua made them wood cutters and drawers of water for the congregation and for the altar of Yahweh. when all the kings who were beyond the Jordan. 26 For Joshua didn’t draw back his hand. All the congregation murmured against the princes.Joshua 8 148 Joshua 10 edge of the sword. 17 The children of Israel traveled and came to their cities on the third day. and tell them. that they should bless the people of Israel. and threw it at the entrance of the gate of the city. 20 This we will do to them. both of men and women. saying.” Joshua said to them. it is dry. and wore old garments. “We have sworn to them by Yahweh. 4 they also resorted to a ruse. 16 It happened at the end of three days after they had made a covenant with them.” 22 Joshua called for them. 18 The children of Israel didn’t strike them. “We are your servants. 11 Our elders and all the inhabitants of our country spoke to us. and they took his body down from the tree. and their elders and officers. which we filled. and behold. 33 All Israel. who was at Ashtaroth. the Canaanite. “Who are you? Where do you come from?” 9 They said to him. and that they lived among them. 25 All that fell that day. as it is written in the book of the law of Moses. in Mount Ebal.’ when you live among us? 23 Now therefore you are cursed. and to destroy all the inhabitants of the land from before you. and has become moldy. and their judges. and to the men of Israel. the foreigner as well as the native. and took old sacks on their donkeys. in the place which he should choose.” 24 They answered Joshua. The princes of the congregation swore to them. on which no man had lifted up any iron. who carried the ark of Yahweh’s covenant. behold. behold. and went and made as if they had been ambassadors. 19 But all the princes said to all the congregation. so that they didn’t kill them. stood on this side of the ark and on that side before the priests the Levites. as he had done to Jericho and her king. with the women. which Joshua didn’t read before all the assembly of Israel.” 7 The men of Israel said to the Hivites. so he had done to Ai and her king. 35 There was not a word of all that Moses commanded. in the hill country. saying. and have done this thing. and some of you will never fail to be bondservants. so they became wood cutters and drawers of water for all the congregation. ‘We are very far from you. old and torn and bound up. half of them in front of Mount Gerizim. the God of Israel: now therefore we may not touch them. to Sihon king of Heshbon and to Og king of Bashan. because of the oath which we swore to them. the Perizzite. “Let them live. the blessing and the curse. 25 Now. saying. and Kiriath Jearim. we are in your hand. and wineskins. that they heard that they were their neighbors. the little ones. heard of it 2 that they gathered themselves together to fight with Joshua and with Israel. as Moses the servant of Yahweh had commanded at the first. and let them live. but now. and raised a great heap of stones on it that remains to this day. and didn’t ask counsel from the mouth of Yahweh. and on all the shore of the great sea in front of Lebanon. even all the men of Ai. an altar of uncut stones. as the princes had spoken to them. Now therefore make a covenant with us. “What if you live among us. Therefore we were very afraid for our lives because of you. to let them live. 27 Only the livestock and the plunder of that city Israel took for plunder to themselves. the God of Israel. “Because your servants were certainly told how Yahweh your God commanded his servant Moses to give you all the land. the God of Israel. 29 He hanged the king of Ai on a tree until the evening. 3 But when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done to Jericho and to Ai. the Amorite. 32 He wrote there on the stones a copy of the law of Moses.” 26 He did so to them. were new. lest wrath be on us.

How could we make a covenant with you?” 8 They said to Joshua. and half of them in front of Mount Ebal. and sacrificed peace offerings. and go to meet them. because the princes of the congregation had sworn to them by Yahweh. 30 Then Joshua built an altar to Yahweh. and had utterly destroyed it. “Your servants have come from a very far country because of the name of Yahweh your God. were twelve thousand.” 21 The princes said to them.

Now make a covenant with us. and made it a heap forever. “We are your servants. until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai.

with all the souls who were in it. and all its men were mighty. 32 Yahweh delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel. 14 There was no day like that before it or after it. and struck it with the edge of the sword. and all Israel with him. He went up from Gilgal all night. and they took them down off the trees. with its king. He took it on the second day. 19 but don’t stay. and they died. into the hand of Israel. he. and they fought against it.” 18 Joshua said. because Gibeon was a great city. that Joshua called for all the men of Israel. saying. according to all that he had done to Lachish. He left no one remaining.” 5 Therefore the five kings of the Amorites. and them from the rear. and struck it with the edge of the sword. as they fled from before Israel. He left no one remaining. and brought those five kings out of the cave to him: the king of Jerusalem. that Yahweh cast down great stones from the sky on them to Azekah. put your feet on the necks of these kings. and they encamped against it fought against it. and he killed them with a great slaughter at Gibeon. Be strong and courageous. as one of the royal cities. and all the souls who were in it. that Joshua commanded. and let us strike Gibeon. 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 . according to all that he had done to Eglon. to Eglon. stand still on Gibeon! You. and save us. None moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel. 15 Joshua returned. they and all their armies. and fought against Libnah. to Libnah. that Yahweh listened to the voice of a man. 4 “Come up to me. and hanged them on five trees. 37 They took it. 36 Joshua went up from Eglon. and fought against it.Joshua 10 149 Joshua 10 Israel. and bring those five kings out of the cave to me. until he had left him no one remaining. 10 Yahweh confused them before Israel. and chased them by the way of the ascent of Beth Horon. 17 Joshua was told. stop in the valley of Aijalon!” 13 The sun stood still. to Lachish. the king of Hebron. when Joshua and the children of Israel had finished killing them with a very great slaughter until they were consumed. the king of Jerusalem. and encamped against Gibeon. when they brought those kings out to Joshua. and all the people of war with him. saying. 29 Joshua passed from Makkedah.” They came near. and help me. 3 Therefore Adoni-Zedek king of Jerusalem sent to Hoham king of Hebron. He did to the king of Makkedah as he had done to the king of Jericho. and all the souls who were in it. “Sun. the king of Hebron. and put their feet on their necks. and were among them. and struck them to Azekah and to Makkedah. and because it was greater than Ai. 34 Joshua passed from Lachish. He utterly destroyed them and all the souls who were in it. and encamped against it. gathered themselves together.” 23 They did so. “Open the mouth of the cave. “Don’t abandon your servants! Come up to us quickly. and laid great stones on the mouth of the cave. They were hanging on the trees until the evening. according to all that he had done to Libnah. “The five kings are found. but he utterly destroyed it.” 9 Joshua therefore came on them suddenly. the king of Lachish. for Yahweh fought for Israel. Don’t allow them to enter into their cities. to Japhia king of Lachish. 25 Joshua said to them.” 20 It happened. which remain to this very day. and went up. He struck it with the edge of the sword. put them to death. 27 It happened at the time of the going down of the sun. the king of Eglon. the king of Jarmuth. 16 These five kings fled. and all Israel with him. and cast them into the cave in which they had hidden themselves. 24 It happened. with its king. and set men by it to guard them. and made war against it. He did to its king as he had done to the king of Jericho. for Yahweh your God has delivered them into your hand. Not a man of them will stand before you. and hid themselves in the cave at Makkedah. He left no one remaining in it. and struck it with the edge of the sword. 6 The men of Gibeon sent to Joshua to the camp to Gilgal. to Hebron. “Don’t fear them. saying. 28 Joshua took Makkedah on that day. and the moon stayed. “Roll large stones to the mouth of the cave. for I have delivered them into your hands. 30 Yahweh delivered it also. the king of Lachish. 2 that they were very afraid. 11 It happened. and all Israel with him. to Piram king of Jarmuth. “Come near. 8 Yahweh said to Joshua. and all the mighty men of valor. with its king and all its cities. for Yahweh will do this to all your enemies against whom you fight. 33 Then Horam king of Gezer came up to help Lachish. to the camp to Gilgal. and to Debir king of Eglon. the king of Jarmuth. and said to the chiefs of the men of war who went with him. 21 that all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace. 31 Joshua passed from Libnah.” 7 So Joshua went up from Gilgal.” 26 Afterward Joshua struck them. moon. and help us. and the king of Eglon. and he said in the sight of Israel. and all the souls who were in it. and the remnant which remained of them had entered into the fortified cities. “Don’t be afraid. while they were at the descent of Beth Horon. There were more who died from the hailstones than who the children of Israel killed with the sword. 12 Then Joshua spoke to Yahweh in the day when Yahweh delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel. until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. and didn’t hurry to go down about a whole day. for it has made peace with Joshua and with the children of Israel. Pursue your enemies. nor be dismayed. hidden in the cave at Makkedah. He utterly destroyed all the souls who were in it that day. and Joshua struck him and his people. and all Israel with him. and all Israel with him. for all the kings of the Amorites that dwell in the hill country have gathered together against us. 22 Then Joshua said. 35 They took it on that day. and struck it with the edge of the sword. Isn’t this written in the book of Jashar? The sun stayed in the midst of the sky.

and cut off the Anakim from the hill country. but that he might destroy them. against them by the waters of Merom suddenly. that he might utterly destroy them. when Jabin king of Hazor heard of it. except Hazor only. and the Jebusite: 9 the king of Jericho. and to its king. the Amorite. from Baal Gad in the valley of Lebanon even to Mount Halak. 12 Joshua captured all the cities of those kings. 42 Joshua took all these kings and their land at one time. 12 the king of Eglon. and the Amorite. and to the sea of the Arabah. and fell on them. 16 the king of Makkedah. 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 It happened. one. the Arabah. with its king and all its cities. 13 the king of Debir. 19 There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel. and the Gadites. 41 Joshua struck them from Kadesh Barnea even to Gaza. and the lowland of the same. and the Perizzite. the hill country of Israel. with the livestock. one. 3 to the Canaanite on the east and on the west. and half Gilead. 10 Joshua turned back at that time. that he sent to Jobab king of Madon. Joshua gave it to the tribes of Israel for a possession according to their divisions. and the lowland. one. all the land of Goshen. even the Salt Sea. struck them.” 7 So Joshua came. 5 and ruled in Mount Hermon. 15 As Yahweh commanded Moses his servant. as Yahweh commanded Moses. so Moses commanded Joshua. and in the heights of Dor on the west. commanded. from the valley of the Arnon to Mount Hermon. 15 the king of Libnah. to the king of Achshaph. the king of Hepher. one. until they had destroyed them. 16 So Joshua captured all that land. fought for Israel. The land had rest from war. as Yahweh. the king of 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 . one. eastward. He left nothing undone of all that Yahweh commanded Moses. He left no one remaining. and they struck them. and to Misrephoth Maim. and Joshua gave it for an inheritance to Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon. the hill country. 11 They struck all the souls who were in it with the edge of the sword. 18 the king of Aphek. 7 These are the kings of the land whom Joshua and the children of Israel struck beyond the Jordan westward. did some remain. one. which is beside Bethel. and ruled from Aroer. and utterly destroyed all the souls who were in it. 5 All these kings met together. and in the lowland.Joshua 10 150 Joshua 12 38 Joshua returned. and all their kings. one. for tomorrow at this time. and the Hittite. and in the South. many people. of the remnant of the Rephaim. and in Salecah. the God of Israel. utterly destroying them. and in the slopes. one. even to the river Jabbok. He hamstrung their horses and burnt their chariots with fire. in the lowland. 8 in the hill country. He burnt Hazor with fire. and took Hazor. to the camp to Gilgal. even as the sand that is on the seashore in multitude. the Perizzite. in the Arabah south of Chinneroth. and possessed their land beyond the Jordan toward the sunrise. and put them to death. the king of Arad. As he had done to Hebron. 11 11 11 1 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 1 Now these are the kings of the land. Joshua burned that. 18 Joshua made war a long time with all those kings. Israel burned none of them. 14 the king of Hormah. and chased them to great Sidon. and all Israel with him. in Gath. one. even to Gibeon. the king of Bethel. and all the country of Goshen. the border of Sihon king of Heshbon. He left no one remaining. 43 Joshua returned. in the hill country. as Moses the servant of Yahweh commanded. the inhabitants of Gibeon. They didn’t leave any who breathed. 2 and to the kings who were on the north. and on the south. They took all in battle. the lowland. one. and in the Arabah. one. and to the valley of Mizpeh eastward. from Anab. and to its king. under the slopes of Pisgah: 4 and the border of Og king of Bashan. who lived in Heshbon. to the border of the Geshurites and the Maacathites. with their kings. from Debir. one. 10 the king of Jerusalem. and the half-tribe of Manasseh. to the king of Shimron. they and all their armies with them. 14 The children of Israel took all the plunder of these cities. all the South. 13 But as for the cities that stood on their mounds. to come against Israel in battle. Moses the servant of Yahweh gave it for a possession to the Reubenites. 3 and the Arabah to the sea of Chinneroth. I will deliver them up all slain before Israel. eastward. as plunder for themselves. 22 There were none of the Anakim left in the land of the children of Israel. 8 Yahweh delivered them into the hand of Israel. because Yahweh. There was no one left who breathed. from Hebron. and he struck them with the edge of the sword. 9 Joshua did to them as Yahweh told him. Joshua did so. 6 Moses the servant of Yahweh and the children of Israel struck them. with very many horses and chariots. whom the children of Israel struck. that they might have no favor. who lived at Ashtaroth and at Edrei. that goes up to Seir. “Don’t be afraid because of them. and in Ashdod. the way to Beth Jeshimoth. the king of Ai. and all the people of war with him. the God of Israel. He took all their kings. according to all that Yahweh spoke to Moses. 23 So Joshua took the whole land. except the Hivites. as he had done also to Libnah. the Hivite. one. and the South. You shall hamstring their horses and burn their chariots with fire. 39 He took it. the king of Lachish. one. one. They struck them with the edge of the sword. and all the Arabah eastward: 2 Sihon king of the Amorites. and the Hivite under Hermon in the land of Mizpah. and in the wilderness. and from all the hill country of Israel: Joshua utterly destroyed them with their cities. one. 21 Joshua came at that time. the king of Geder. and fought against it. the king of Hebron. so he did to Debir. and the Canaanite. and they came and encamped together at the waters of Merom. and the middle of the valley. but he utterly destroyed all that breathed. and utterly destroyed them.

Ehud the son of Gera. nor yet the work which he had worked for Israel. and followed other gods. that the people lifted up their voice. you shall break down their altars. of the gods of the peoples who were around them. when the judge was dead. a cubit in length. 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 these are the nations which Yahweh left. 22 that by them I may prove Israel. and Yahweh delivered Cushan Rishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand: and his hand prevailed against Cushan Rishathaim. to know whether they would listen to the commandments of Yahweh. and shut the doors of the upper room on him. 5 They called the name of that place Bochim: and they sacrificed there to Yahweh. 17 He offered the tribute to Eglon king of Moab: now Eglon was a very fat man. a man left-handed. 11 The land had rest forty years. 10 The Spirit of Yahweh came on him. 6 Now when Joshua had sent the people away. to prove Israel by them. who didn’t know Yahweh.” 4 It happened. 3 3 1 Now 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 . and the Hivites. and served the Baals and the Asheroth. who saved them. “Because this nation have transgressed my covenant which I commanded their fathers. to teach them war. the servant of Yahweh. that they turned back. 12 and they forsook Yahweh. 15 But when the children of Israel cried to Yahweh. Yahweh raised them up a savior. and served the Baals. and the Sidonians. 14 Yahweh’s anger was kindled against Israel. he sent away the people who bore the tribute. on the north of the mountain of Gaash. 18 When he had made an end of offering the tribute. 17 Yet they didn’t listen to their judges. for they played the prostitute after other gods.Judges 2 160 Judges 3 the inhabitants of this land. in following other gods to serve them. and the Perizzites. 20 Yahweh’s anger was kindled against Israel. obeying the commandments of Yahweh. because they had done that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh. and bowed themselves down to them: they turned aside quickly out of the way in which their fathers walked.” The king said. 18 When Yahweh raised them up judges. 19 But it happened. 16 Ehud made him a sword which had two edges. 8 Therefore Yahweh’s anger was kindled against Israel. as their fathers kept it. from Mount Baal Hermon to the entrance of Hamath. as Yahweh had spoken. 21 Ehud put out his left hand. 16 Yahweh raised up judges. which he commanded their fathers by Moses. for he didn’t draw the sword out of his body. 11 The children of Israel did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh. and he went and struck Israel. and thrust it into his body: 22 and the handle also went in after the blade. 20 Ehud came to him. and gave their own daughters to their sons and served their gods.’ But you have not listened to my voice: why have you done this? 3 Therefore I also said. and the Amorites. in the hill country of Ephraim. they didn’t cease from their doings. and he said. died. at the least such as before knew nothing of it: 3 the five lords of the Philistines. but they shall be in your sides. Othniel the son of Kenaz died. 19 But he himself turned back from the quarries that were by Gilgal. and their gods shall be a snare to you. 7 The children of Israel did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh. who had seen all the great work of Yahweh that he had worked for Israel. and served Baal and the Ashtaroth. Yahweh raised up a savior to the children of Israel. and he went out to war. the God of their fathers. The children of Israel sent tribute by him to Eglon the king of Moab. Ehud said. 21 I also will not henceforth drive out any from before them of the nations that Joshua left when he died. being one hundred ten years old. 10 Also all that generation were gathered to their fathers: and there arose another generation after them. and the Hivites who lived on Mount Lebanon. 13 He gathered to him the children of Ammon and Amalek. and all the Canaanites. the Benjamite. neither delivered he them into the hand of Joshua. and he delivered them into the hands of raiders who plundered them. and as Yahweh had sworn to them: and they were very distressed. even as many as had not known all the wars of Canaan. the hand of Yahweh was against them for evil. and saved them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge: for it grieved Yahweh because of their groaning by reason of those who oppressed them and troubled them. and took the sword from his right thigh. 9 They buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnath Heres. and he judged Israel. “Keep silence!” All who stood by him went out from him. the children of Israel went every man to his inheritance to possess the land. whether they will keep the way of Yahweh to walk therein.” He arose out of his seat. then Yahweh was with the judge. 9 When the children of Israel cried to Yahweh. I will not drive them out from before you. or not. and said. and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua. and it came out behind. They didn’t do so. and the Jebusites: 6 and they took their daughters to be their wives. who saved them out of the hand of those who plundered them. and have not listened to my voice. 15 Wherever they went out. 12 The children of Israel again did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh: and Yahweh strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel. and he sold them into the hands of their enemies all around. 4 They were left to test Israel by them. and wept. 23 Then Ehud went out onto the porch. and he wore it under his clothing on his right thigh. and they possessed the city of palm trees.” 23 So Yahweh left those nations. without driving them out hastily. 2 only that the generations of the children of Israel might know. “I have a message from God to you. and locked them.

for this is the day in which Yahweh has delivered Sisera into your hand. every lusty man. and took the fords of the Jordan against the Moabites. 2 “Because the leaders took the lead in Israel. there was not a man left. the earth trembled. and says. at the presence of Yahweh. 31 After him was Shamgar the son of Anath. even Sinai. when Ehud was dead.

I. 10 Barak called Zebulun and Naphtali together to Kedesh. and behold. and after the army. to the river Kishon. 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 1 Then Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam sang on that day. 4 Now Deborah. then I will go. 23 So God subdued on that day Jabin the king of Canaan before the children of Israel. when you marched out of the field of Edom. and twenty years he mightily oppressed the children of Israel. the God of Israel.” He came in to her into the tent. with his chariots and his multitude. when you went out of Seir. because the people offered themselves willingly. I will sing praise to Yahweh. don’t be afraid. 28 He said to them. and the tent peg was in his temples. for Yahweh has delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. and escaped to Seirah. 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 1 The children of Israel again did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh.’” 21 Then Jael Heber’s wife took a tent peg. “Follow me. as Barak pursued Sisera. and said to him. and Sisera alighted from his chariot. even from the children of Hobab the brother-in-law of Moses. and said to him. 17 However Sisera fled away on his feet to the tent of Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite. for he was in a deep sleep. and there went up ten thousand men at his feet: and Deborah went up with him. 19 He said to her. even I. will sing to Yahweh. and it pierced through into the ground. even nine hundred chariots of iron. and covered him. when any man comes and inquires of you. and I will show you the man whom you seek. turn in to me. “Please give me a little water to drink. 6 She sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedesh Naphtali. and behold. when he had come. and all his chariots. who reigned in Hazor. and ten thousand men after him. until they had destroyed Jabin king of Canaan. saying. ‘Go and draw to Mount Tabor. 29 They struck of Moab at that time about ten thousand men. which is by Kedesh. and struck the pin into his temples. 14 Deborah said to Barak. and behold. the wife of Lappidoth. and they said. who lived in Harosheth of the Gentiles. “Stand in the door of the tent. and all his army. 26 Ehud escaped while they waited. from Harosheth of the Gentiles. and she covered him with a rug. Yes. for Yahweh will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. ‘Is there any man here?’ that you shall say. the doors of the upper room were locked. and I will deliver him into your hand. “Hasn’t Yahweh. 22 Behold. Hasn’t Yahweh gone out before you?” So Barak went down from Mount Tabor. 16 But Barak pursued after the chariots. The land had rest eighty years. be blessed. their lord was fallen down dead on the earth. my lord. and fled away on his feet. and didn’t allow any man to pass over. and he before them.

Or will you save him? He who will contend for him. 25 It happened the same night. I will put a fleece of wool on the threshing floor. until I come to you. likewise everyone who bows down on his knees to drink. lest Israel vaunt themselves against me. ‘This shall go with you. and wrung the dew out of the fleece.” 19 Gideon went in. and Yahweh said to Gideon. in an orderly way. let him return and depart from Mount Gilead. so that he could not do it by day.’ the same shall go with you. and throw down the altar of Baal that your father has. saying. and bring out my present. 29 They said one to another. and I will test them for you there. and they also were gathered together after him: and he sent messengers to Asher. 20 The angel of God said to him. and the second bull was offered on the altar that was built. “Gideon the son of Joash has done this thing. and cut down the Asherah that is by it. “Surely I will be with you.

It shall be. and lay it before you. behold. you shall set him by himself.” He did so. Yahweh Shalom c 6:32 “Jerub-Baal” means “Let Baal contend. “I will wait until you come back.” 40 God did so that night: for it was dry on the fleece only. and touched the meat and the unleavened cakes.” 6 The 7 7 1 7 7 7 7 7 a 6:19 1 ephah is about 22 litres or about 2/3 of a bushel 6:24 or. and take the second bull. “Peace be to you!

Let all the other people go. about fifteen thousand men. and inquired of him: and he described for him the princes of Succoth. and they shouted. God has delivered Midian into his hand. and do likewise. so you shall do. there was a man telling a dream to his fellow. and pursued after Midian. “Arise. “Why have you treated us this way. that we should give bread to your army?” 7 Gideon said. so that the tent lay flat. that he worshiped. and against all the army. for they are faint. was three hundred men. and their camels were without number. and I am pursuing after Zebah and Zalmunna. when Gideon heard the telling of the dream. when he had said that. and they killed Oreb at the rock of Oreb. putting their hand to their mouth. I and all who are with me. concerning whom you taunted me. each to his own place. for Yahweh has delivered the army of Midian into your hand!” 16 He divided the three hundred men into three companies. 7 Yahweh said to Gideon. came to the outermost part of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch. and he pursued after them. with all the army. and struck it so that it fell. 13 Gideon the son of Joash returned from the battle from the ascent of Heres. go down into the camp. and deliver the Midianites into your hand. the kings of Midian. when I come to the outermost part of the camp. and all the army ran. and empty pitchers.” 8 So the people took food in their hand. “Therefore when Yahweh has delivered Zebah and Zalmunna into my hand. 15 He came to the men of Succoth. and their trumpets. for the army was secure. as the sand which is on the seashore for multitude. and said. when you went to fight with Midian?” They rebuked him sharply. and Yahweh set every man’s sword against his fellow. all who were left of all the army of the children of the east. 4 Gideon came to the Jordan.” 6 The princes of Succoth said.” 10 Now Zebah and Zalmunna were in Karkor. and its interpretation. 22 They blew the three hundred trumpets. but retained the three hundred men: and the camp of Midian was beneath him in the valley. 13 When Gideon had come. and their armies with them. 18 When I blow the trumpet. and the army fled as far as Beth Shittah toward Zererah. he. 20 The three companies blew the trumpets. and they shouted. when they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets. I will break down this tower. “This is nothing other than the sword of Gideon the son of Joash. “Behold. 12 Zebah and Zalmunna fled. as far as Beth Barah. and confused all the army. even the Jordan!” So all the men of Ephraim were gathered together. even the Jordan. a man of Israel. I dreamed a dream. “Come down against Midian. and take before them the waters. “Arise. go with Purah your servant down to the camp: 11 and you shall hear what they say. and its elders. “The sword of Yahweh and of Gideon!” 21 They each stood in his place around the camp. yet pursuing. saying. and he sent all the men of Israel every man to his tent. and the three hundred men who were with him. and spoke to them in the same way. as far as the border of Abel Meholah. and afterward your hands will be strengthened to go down into the camp. 9 It happened the same night. and broke the pitchers. “Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna now in your hand. 2 He said to them. then I will tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness and with briers. a cake of barley bread tumbled into the camp of Midian. 25 They took the two princes of Midian. with torches within the pitchers. and the hundred men who were with him. Behold. 12 The Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east lay along in the valley like locusts for multitude. and came to the tent. “What have I now done in comparison with you? Isn’t the gleaning of the grapes of Ephraim better than the vintage of Abiezer? 3 God has delivered into your hand the princes of Midian. and behold. 11 Gideon went up by the way of those who lived in tents on the east of Nobah and Jogbehah. and put them to flight. 14 He caught a young man of the men of Succoth. 17 He said to them. and Zeeb they killed at the wine press of Zeeb. 10 But if you are afraid to go down. and out of Asher. and struck the army. and took the waters as far as Beth Barah. “Watch me. but all the rest of the people bowed down on their knees to drink water. it shall be that. and the men of Penuel answered him as the men of Succoth had answered. and turned it upside down. for there fell one hundred twenty thousand men who drew sword. 24 Gideon sent messengers throughout all the hill country of Ephraim. and said. and he took the two kings of Midian. ‘For Yahweh and for Gideon!’” 19 So Gideon. that we 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 .” 8 He went up there to Penuel. and pursued Midian: and they brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon beyond the Jordan. and passed over.” 15 It was so.” Then went he down with Purah his servant to the outermost part of the armed men who were in the camp. Zebah and Zalmunna. Oreb and Zeeb! What was I able to do in comparison with you?” Then their anger was abated toward him. and he returned into the camp of Israel. 5 He said to the men of Succoth. by Tabbath. seventy-seven men. and the trumpets in their right hands with which to blow. saying. saying. Oreb and Zeeb. “Please give loaves of bread to the people who follow me. ‘Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna now in your hand. that you didn’t call us. 9 He spoke also to the men of Penuel. “See Zebah and Zalmunna. “When I come again in peace. then blow the trumpets also on every side of all the camp. and broke in pieces the pitchers that were in their hands. “By the three hundred men who lapped will I save you. 23 The men of Israel were gathered together out of Naphtali.

with which Abimelech hired vain and light fellows. that God may listen to you. 21 Then Zebah and Zalmunna said. on one stone.” 3 His mother’s brothers spoke of him in the ears of all the men of Shechem all these words: and their hearts inclined to follow Abimelech. because he is your brother). and if you have dealt well with Jerubbaal and his house. you men of Shechem. “Rise and fall on us. who had delivered them out of the hand of all their enemies on every side. ‘Come and reign over us.’ 11 “But the fig tree said to them. and the purple clothing that was on the kings of Midian. “He is our brother. rule over you. ‘Should I leave my fatness. in that you have made Abimelech king. then rejoice in Abimelech. ‘Come and reign over us. and every man threw the earrings of his plunder into it. ‘Is it better for you that all the sons of Jerubbaal. As Yahweh lives.” 19 He said. then come and take refuge in my shade. 32 Gideon the son of Joash died in a good old age. ‘Should I leave my new wine. and go to wave back and forth over the trees?’ 14 “Then all the trees said to the bramble. she also bore him a son. 2 “Please speak in the ears of all the men of Shechem. 34 The children of Israel didn’t remember Yahweh their God.” They spread a garment.’ 9 “But the olive tree said to them. ‘Come and reign over us. and they lifted up their heads no more. 7 When they told it to Jotham. 19 if you then have dealt truly and righteously with Jerubbaal and with his house this day. if you have dealt truly and righteously. and have made Abimelech. both you. and cried. and devour the cedars of Lebanon. and spoke with them. Yahweh shall rule over you. “I would make a request of you. “What kind of men were they whom you killed at Tabor?” They answered. “They were my brothers. 30 Gideon had seventy sons conceived from his body. and 9 9 1 Abimelech 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 . let fire come out of the bramble.Judges 8 165 Judges 9 should give bread to your men who are weary?’” 16 He took the elders of the city. 17 He broke down the tower of Penuel. king over the men of Shechem.” 4 They gave him seventy pieces of silver out of the house of Baal Berith. “I will not rule over you. 27 Gideon made an ephod of it. and the pendants. that you would give me every man the earrings of his plunder.” 24 Gideon said to them. 8 The trees set out to anoint a king over themselves. “Get up. that the children of Israel turned again. 26 The weight of the golden earrings that he requested was one thousand and seven hundred shekels of gold. and have done to him according to the deserving of his hands 17 (for my father fought for you. so is his strength. and killed Zebah and Zalmunna. and took the crescents that were on their camels’ necks. and if not. and he named him Abimelech. “Listen to me. with which by me they honor God and man. and my good fruit. and risked his life.” (For they had golden earrings. because he was yet a youth. and thorns of the wilderness and briers. and with them he taught the men of Succoth. and all the house of Millo. and went and made Abimelech king. and killed the men of the city. 33 It happened. 28 So Midian was subdued before the children of Israel. “We will willingly give them. seventy persons. besides the crescents. neither shall my son rule over you. because they were Ishmaelites. and your son’s son also. for he had many wives. 31 His concubine who was in Shechem. and played the prostitute after the Baals. and go to wave back and forth over the trees?’ 10 “The trees said to the fig tree. for you have saved us out of the hand of Midian. Gideon. “They were like you. “Rule over us. on one stone: but Jotham the youngest son of Jerubbaal was left. and killed his brothers the sons of Jerubbaal.’ 16 “Now therefore. who followed him. for he hid himself. for they said. and to his house. 35 neither did they show kindness to the house of Jerubbaal. being seventy persons. and put it in his city.” Gideon arose. in Ophrah of the Abiezrites. if you had saved them alive. I would not kill you. and lifted up his voice. saying. 22 Then the men of Israel said to Gideon. 5 He went to his father’s house at Ophrah.’ 13 “The vine said to them.” 23 Gideon said to them. which cheers God and man. for as the man is. and go to wave back and forth over the trees?’ 12 “The trees said to the vine. ‘If in truth you anoint me king over you. according to all the goodness which he had shown to Israel. the sons of my mother. and delivered you out of the hand of Midian: 18 and you have risen up against my father’s house this day. or that one rule over you?’ Remember also that I am your bone and your flesh.” 20 He said to Jether his firstborn. and besides the chains that were about their camels’ necks. 29 Jerubbaal the son of Joash went and lived in his own house. the son of his female servant. The land had rest forty years in the days of Gideon.’ 15 “The bramble said to the trees. 6 All the men of Shechem assembled themselves together. 18 Then he said to Zebah and Zalmunna. and your son. and was buried in the tomb of Joash his father. and said to them. and it became a snare to Gideon.) 25 They answered. by the oak of the pillar that was in Shechem. and with all the family of the house of his mother’s father. and kill them!” But the youth didn’t draw his sword. who are seventy persons. he went and stood on the top of Mount Gerizim. 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 the son of Jerubbaal went to Shechem to his mother’s brothers. They said to the olive tree. Each one resembled the children of a king. and made Baal Berith their god. ‘Reign over us. for he was afraid. and have slain his sons. as soon as Gideon was dead. even in Ophrah: and all Israel played the prostitute after it there. ‘Should I leave my sweetness.

56 Thus God requited the wickedness of Abimelech. 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 10 1 After Abimelech there arose to save Israel Tola the son of Puah. a man of Issachar. and behold. 40 Abimelech chased him. and took it. and fled. and he fled before him. and who is Shechem. and there fled all the men and women.” 38 Then Zebul said to him. 23 God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem. make haste. 53 A certain woman cast an upper millstone on Abimelech’s head. that we should serve him?’ Isn’t this the people that you have despised? Please go out now and fight with them. and that their blood might be laid on Abimelech their brother. “Now where is your mouth. which he did to his father. and held festival. from the ambush. and the men of Shechem put their trust in him. 43 He took the people. and was buried in Shamir. 35 Gaal the son of Ebed went out. 31 He sent messengers to Abimelech craftily. and he looked. 47 It was told Abimelech that all the men of the tower of Shechem were gathered together. and behold. 42 It happened on the next day. 26 Gaal the son of Ebed came with his brothers. and laid it on his shoulder: and he said to the people who were with him. and all they of the city. 41 Abimelech lived at Arumah: and Zebul drove out Gaal and his brothers. and encamped against Thebez. that the people went out into the field. so that all the people of the tower of Shechem died also. 28 Gaal the son of Ebed said. they incite the city against you. and killed the people who were therein: and he beat down the city. and rush on the city. “Draw your sword. “Increase your army. and do as I have done!” 49 All the people likewise each cut down his bough. about a thousand men and women. and put them at the base of the stronghold.” 55 When the men of Israel saw that Abimelech was dead. and cut down a bough from the trees. 57 and all the wickedness of the men of Shechem did God requite on their heads: and on them came the curse of Jotham the son of Jerubbaal. and he took the city. and went up to the roof of the tower. and harvested their vineyards. and come out!” 30 When Zebul the ruler of the city heard the words of Gaal the son of Ebed. and struck them. and lie in wait in the field: 33 and it shall be. let fire come out from Abimelech. and the companies that were with him. and devour Abimelech.” He said to Abimelech. by night. “You see the shadow of the mountains as if they were men. and the people who were with him.” Zebul said to him. He rose up against them. they entered into the stronghold of the house of Elberith. and all the people who were with him. and on the men of Shechem. and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech: 24 that the violence done to the seventy sons of Jerubbaal might come. as soon as the sun is up. and shut themselves in. 50 Then went Abimelech to Thebez. and followed Abimelech. and sowed it with salt.” 37 Gaal spoke again and said. and said to him. 3 After him arose Jair. and stood in the entrance of the gate of the city: and Abimelech rose up. 46 When all the men of the tower of Shechem heard of it. and from the house of Millo. 22 Abimelech was prince over Israel three years. 51 But there was a strong tower within the city. and struck them.” 21 Jotham ran away. 45 Abimelech fought against the city all that day. and took it up. he and all the people who were with him. his anger was kindled. 2 He judged Israel twenty-three years. “What you have seen me do. the people came out of the city. 32 Now therefore. and they had thirty 10 10 10 10 . and one company comes by the way of the oak of Meonenim. he said to Zebul. and many fell wounded. and he died. 44 Abimelech. you shall rise early. ‘A woman killed him. “Who is Abimelech. and stood in the entrance of the gate of the city: and the two companies rushed on all who were in the field. 36 When Gaal saw the people. that you said. go up by night. Gaal the son of Ebed and his brothers have come to Shechem. and Abimelech took an ax in his hand. for fear of Abimelech his brother. that we should serve him? Isn’t he the son of Jerubbaal? and Zebul his officer? Serve the men of Hamor the father of Shechem: but why should we serve him? 29 Would that this people were under my hand! Then I would remove Abimelech. and set the stronghold on fire on them. in killing his seventy brothers. that they should not dwell in Shechem. and kill me. people are coming down by the middle of the land. and died. 27 They went out into the field. and cursed Abimelech. and went to Beer. and the house of Millo. and went into the house of their god. who strengthened his hands to kill his brothers. “Behold. and broke his skull. and devour the men of Shechem. they departed every man to his place. 25 The men of Shechem set an ambush for him on the tops of the mountains. even to the entrance of the gate. ‘Who is Abimelech. saying. “Behold. that men not say of me. and ate and drank.’ His young man thrust him through. and divided them into three companies. and he lived in Shamir in the hill country of Ephraim. and let fire come out from the men of Shechem. and they told Abimelech. the Gileadite. and drew near to the door of the tower to burn it with fire. and behold. then may you do to them as you shall find occasion. 54 Then he called hastily to the young man his armor bearer. and fought with Abimelech. and laid wait in the field. people are coming down from the tops of the mountains. that in the morning. and he judged Israel twenty-two years.” 34 Abimelech rose up. and lived there. 4 He had thirty sons who rode on thirty donkey colts.” 39 Gaal went out before the men of Shechem. when he and the people who are with him come out against you. “Behold. and fought against it. the son of Dodo. you and the people who are with you. 48 Abimelech went up to Mount Zalmon. and they laid wait against Shechem in four companies. and they robbed all who came along that way by them: and it was told Abimelech. and went over to Shechem. rushed forward. and trod the grapes.Judges 9 166 Judges 10 let him also rejoice in you: 20 but if not. 52 Abimelech came to the tower. who killed them.

7 Yahweh’s anger was kindled against Israel. 17 then Israel sent messengers to the king of Edom. and against the house of Ephraim. In the same way. that we may fight with the children of Ammon. and from the Amorites. and didn’t serve him. but Sihon gathered all his people together.” 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valor. and they went out with him. from the Arnon even to the Jabbok. and from the wilderness even to the Jordan. for the Arnon was the border of Moab.Judges 10 167 Judges 11 cities. and Israel said to him. “Therefore we have turned again to you now. “Didn’t you hate me. and encamped in Mizpah. and drive me out of my father’s house? Why have you come to me now when you are in distress?” 8 The elders of Gilead said to Jephthah. and fight with the children of Ammon. and I saved you out of their hand. 6 The children of Israel again did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh. and the gods of the Philistines. that the children of Ammon made war against Israel. “Because Israel took away my land. so that Israel was very distressed. 4 It happened after a while. 22 They possessed all the border of the Amorites.” 16 They put away the foreign gods from among them. even because we have forsaken our God. that you may go with us. and went around the land of Edom. and into the hand of the children of Ammon. and encamped in Jahaz. ‘Please let us pass through your land to my place. them will we possess. 14 Go and cry to the gods which you have chosen. the God of Israel. they drove out Jephthah. 17 Then the children of Ammon were gathered together. which are in the land of Gilead. delivered Sihon and all his people into the hand of Israel. nor the land of the children of Ammon.” 11 Yahweh said to the children of Israel.” 3 Then Jephthah fled from his brothers. and his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel.’ but the king of Edom didn’t listen. “Yahweh shall be witness between us. 15 and he said to him. and the gods of the children of Ammon. and came by the east side of the land of Moab. and he sold them into the hand of the Philistines. the princes of Gilead. that you have come to me to fight against my land?” 13 The king of the children of Ammon answered to the messengers of Jephthah. “Come and be our chief. said one to another. and fought against Israel. 19 Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites. and said to him. or did 11 11 11 1 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 . 6 and they said to Jephthah. which is in Gilead. “We have sinned against you. saying. and he was the son of a prostitute: and Gilead became the father of Jephthah. and you shall be our head over all the inhabitants of Gilead. 5 It was so. and they forsook Yahweh. has dispossessed the Amorites from before his people Israel. 25 Now are you anything better than Balak the son of Zippor. and the Amalekites. 10 The children of Israel cried to Yahweh. saying. the king of Heshbon. Let them save you in the time of your distress!” 15 The children of Israel said to Yahweh. the inhabitants of that country. and the gods of Sidon. 18 The people. 18 Then they went through the wilderness. and Yahweh deliver them before me.” 7 Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead. and against Benjamin. and they struck them: so Israel possessed all the land of the Amorites. and the Maonites. and from the Philistines? 12 The Sidonians also. saying. which are called Havvoth Jair to this day. and when his wife’s sons grew up. that when the children of Ammon made war against Israel. 12 Jephthah sent messengers to the king of the children of Ammon.” 11 Then Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead. 9 The children of Ammon passed over the Jordan to fight also against Judah.” 14 Jephthah sent messengers again to the king of the children of Ammon. 13 Yet you have forsaken me. the elders of Gilead went to get Jephthah out of the land of Tob. “Didn’t I save you from the Egyptians. and have served the Baals. 21 Yahweh. and the land of Moab. and they encamped on the other side of the Arnon. 23 So now Yahweh. please. king of Moab? Did he ever strive against Israel. but they didn’t come within the border of Moab. and served Yahweh. For eighteen years. “What man is he who will begin to fight against the children of Ammon? He shall be head over all the inhabitants of Gilead. 16 but when they came up from Egypt. and the people made him head and chief over them: and Jephthah spoke all his words before Yahweh in Mizpah. and was buried in Kamon.’ 20 But Sihon didn’t trust Israel to pass through his border. and came to Kadesh. the God of Israel. ‘Please let me pass through your land. from the Arnon even to the Jabbok. 5 Jair died. shall I be your head?” 10 The elders of Gilead said to Jephthah. and served the Baals. only deliver us. and lived in the land of Tob: and there were gathered vain fellows to Jephthah. he sent to the king of Moab. and the Ashtaroth.” 9 Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead. 8 They troubled and oppressed the children of Israel that year. The children of Israel assembled themselves together. for you are the son of another woman. and the gods of Moab. and the gods of Syria. “If you bring me home again to fight with the children of Ammon. oppressed you. but he would not: and Israel stayed in Kadesh. and served other gods: therefore I will save you no more. “You shall not inherit in our father’s house. “Thus says Jephthah: Israel didn’t take away the land of Moab. and to the Jordan: now therefore restore that territory again peaceably. and encamped in Gilead. and should you possess them? 24 Won’t you possess that which Chemosh your god gives you to possess? So whoever Yahweh our God has dispossessed from before us. surely according to your word so will we do. this day. from the children of Ammon. they oppressed all the children of Israel that were beyond the Jordan in the land of the Amorites. “We have sinned: do you to us whatever seems good to you. and Israel went through the wilderness to the Red Sea. and you cried to me. “What have you to do with me. 2 Gilead’s wife bore him sons. when he came up out of Egypt.

6 then they said to him. behold. and in all the cities that are along by the side of the Arnon. “You are fugitives of Ephraim.” 37 She said to her father. the Judge. and Yahweh delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years. you shall conceive. 11 After him Elon the Zebulunite judged Israel. who rode on seventy donkey colts: and he judged Israel eight years. 14 He had forty sons and thirty sons’ sons. very awesome. and said. ‘Behold. who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she was a virgin. she and her companions.’” 13 13 13 1 13 13 13 13 13 . and thirty daughters he brought in from abroad for his sons. and I will offer it up for a burnt offering. and fought with Ephraim. 29 Then the Spirit of Yahweh came on Jephthah. Then Jephthah the Gileadite died. but you shall conceive. “Go. and his wife was barren. because Yahweh has taken vengeance for you on your enemies. for he couldn’t manage to pronounce it right: then they seized him. and was buried in Pirathon in the land of Ephraim. do to me according to that which has proceeded out of your mouth. “I and my people were at great strife with the children of Ammon. and thirty daughters he sent abroad. and I didn’t ask him where he was from. why didn’t you recover them within that time? 27 I therefore have not sinned against you. and bewail my virginity. when he saw her. in the midst of Ephraim. and in Aroer and its towns. it shall be Yahweh’s. 12 Elon the Zebulunite died. 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 The men of Ephraim were gathered together. and eat not any unclean thing. Why then have you come up to me this day. and didn’t bear. “Let me go over.Judges 11 168 Judges 13 he ever fight against them? 26 While Israel lived in Heshbon and its towns. I put my life in my hand. 30 Jephthah vowed a vow to Yahweh. and I can’t go back. 3 The angel of Yahweh appeared to the woman. 13 After him Abdon the son of Hillel the Pirathonite judged Israel. you are barren.” He sent her away for two months: and she departed. even twenty cities.’” and he said “Sibboleth”. Yahweh. 12 12 12 12 1 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12 The children of Israel again did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh. that when the fugitives of Ephraim said. three hundred years. and didn’t call us to go with you? We will burn your house around you with fire!” 2 Jephthah said to them. my daughter! You have brought me very low.” 28 However the king of the children of Ammon didn’t listen to the words of Jephthah which he sent him. and was buried at Bethlehem.” 32 So Jephthah passed over to the children of Ammon to fight against them. and from Mizpeh of Gilead he passed over to the children of Ammon. “Let this thing be done for me: let me alone two months.” the men of Gilead said to him. So the children of Ammon were subdued before the children of Israel. besides her he had neither son nor daughter. 39 It happened at the end of two months. and passed over against the children of Ammon. you shall conceive. 8 After him Ibzan of Bethlehem judged Israel. but you do me wrong to war against me. for I have opened my mouth to Yahweh. and he judged Israel ten years. and said to her. “Alas. “My father. be judge this day between the children of Israel and the children of Ammon. and was buried in the cities of Gilead. that I may depart and go down on the mountains. whose name was Manoah. and you are one of those who trouble me. I and my companions. and said. He judged Israel seven years. of the family of the Danites. “No”. and when I called you. and killed him at the fords of the Jordan. 3 When I saw that you didn’t save me. 9 He had thirty sons. and Yahweh delivered them into his hand.” 5 The Gileadites took the fords of the Jordan against the Ephraimites. It was so. neither did he tell me his name: 7 but he said to me. 33 He struck them from Aroer until you come to Minnith. because they said. his daughter came out to meet him with tambourines and with dances: and she was his only child. even on the children of Ammon. 31 then it shall be. and in the midst of Manasseh. 35 It happened. and his face was like the face of the angel of God. and Yahweh delivered them into my hand. for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb: and he shall begin to save Israel out of the hand of the Philistines. that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me. and to Abelcheramim. It was a custom in Israel. and the men of Gilead struck Ephraim. and bear a son.” 6 Then the woman came and told her husband. you didn’t save me out of their hand. saying. and no razor shall come on his head. 15 Abdon the son of Hillel the Pirathonite died. 4 Now therefore please beware and drink no wine nor strong drink. “See now.” 36 She said to him. and now drink no wine nor strong drink. and was buried in Aijalon in the land of Zebulun. “A man of God came to me. with a very great slaughter. At that time.” 38 He said. and bear a son. for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb to the day of his death. 40 that the daughters of Israel went yearly to celebrate the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite four days in a year. and passed northward. and they said to Jephthah. and he passed over Gilead and Manasseh. and don’t eat any unclean thing: 5 for. that he tore his clothes. you have opened your mouth to Yahweh. “Are you an Ephraimite?” If he said. 7 Jephthah judged Israel six years. “Now say ‘Shibboleth. forty-two thousand of Ephraim fell. 34 Jephthah came to Mizpah to his house. “If you will indeed deliver the children of Ammon into my hand. when I return in peace from the children of Ammon. and bear a son. “Why did you pass over to fight against the children of Ammon. in the hill country of the Amalekites. you Gileadites. and passed over Mizpeh of Gilead. 10 Ibzan died. and mourned her virginity on the mountains. to fight against me?” 4 Then Jephthah gathered together all the men of Gilead. and behold. that she returned to her father. 2 There was a certain man of Zorah. and don’t bear.

” 23 But his wife said to him. that we may make a young goat ready for you. and if you will prepare a burnt offering. please let the man of God whom you did send come again to us. that you go to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines?” Samson said to his father. 10 His father went down to the woman: and Samson made there a feast. for he sought an occasion against the Philistines. You have told a riddle to the children of my people. and said. Have you called us to impoverish us? Is it not so?” 16 Samson’s wife wept before him. 20 For it happened. 13 but if you can’t declare it to me. 14 She may not eat of anything that comes of the vine. nor would at this time have told such things as these. and said to him. 22 Manoah said to his wife. “Now let your words happen. that the angel of Yahweh ascended in the flame of the altar: and Manoah and his wife looked on. and said. 17 Manoah said to the angel of Yahweh.” 11 Manoah arose. and offered it on the rock to Yahweh.” 9 God listened to the voice of Manoah. What shall the child’s way of life and mission be?” 13 The angel of Yahweh said to Manoah. “If Yahweh were pleased to kill us. that he told her. 10 The woman made haste. we may honor you?” 18 The angel of Yahweh said to him. wasn’t with her. and came to the vineyards of Timnah: and behold. “Is there never a woman among the daughters of your brothers. 12 Samson said to them. “Out of the eater came out food. 18 The men of the city said to him on the seventh day before the sun went down. 21 But the angel of Yahweh didn’t appear to Manoah or to his wife any more. Then the angel did a wonderful thing as Manoah and his wife looked on. and they ate: but he didn’t tell them that he had taken the honey out of the body of the lion. and told her husband. If you can declare it to me within the seven days of the feast. and they fell on their faces to the ground. 25 The Spirit of Yahweh began to move him in Mahaneh Dan. Then Manoah knew that he was the angel of Yahweh. and said. “Though you detain me. and honey. since it is wonderful?” 19 So Manoah took the young goat with the meal offering. and saw a woman in Timnah of the daughters of the Philistines. and he turned aside to see the carcass of the lion: and behold. let us detain you. lest we burn you and your father’s house with fire.” 4 But his father and his m
