1And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.2Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;3Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;4Simon the Cananite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.5These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: "Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans.6But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.7And as you go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'8Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.9Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your money belts,10nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food.11Now whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there till you go out.12And when you go into a household, greet it.13If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.14And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.15Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!16"Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.17But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues.18You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles.19But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak;20for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.21Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.22And you will be hated by all for My name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.23When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.24A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.25It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household!
1'Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering (it is most holy):2In the place where they kill the burnt offering they shall kill the trespass offering. And its blood he shall sprinkle all around on the altar.3And he shall offer from it all its fat. The fat tail and the fat that covers the entrails,4the two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the flanks, and the fatty lobe attached to the liver above the kidneys, he shall remove;5and the priest shall burn them on the altar as an offering made by fire to the Lord. It is a trespass offering.6Every male among the priests may eat it. It shall be eaten in a holy place. It is most holy.7The trespass offering is like the sin offering; there is one law for them both: the priest who makes atonement with it shall have it.8And the priest who offers anyone's burnt offering, that priest shall have for himself the skin of the burnt offering which he has offered.9Also every grain offering that is baked in the oven and all that is prepared in the covered pan, or in a pan, shall be the priest's who offers it.10Every grain offering, whether mixed with oil, or dry, shall belong to all the sons of Aaron, to one as much as the other.11'This is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings which he shall offer to the Lord:12If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer, with the sacrifice of thanksgiving, unleavened cakes mixed with oil, unleavened wafers anointed with oil, or cakes of blended flour mixed with oil.13Besides the cakes, as his offering he shall offer leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offering.14And from it he shall offer one cake from each offering as a heave offering to the Lord. It shall belong to the priest who sprinkles the blood of the peace offering.15'The flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day it is offered. He shall not leave any of it until morning.16But if the sacrifice of his offering is a vow or a voluntary offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offers his sacrifice; but on the next day the remainder of it also may be eaten;17the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day must be burned with fire.18And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering is eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, nor shall it be imputed to him; it shall be an abomination to him who offers it, and the person who eats of it shall bear guilt.19'The flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten. It shall be burned with fire. And as for the clean flesh, all who are clean may eat of it.20But the person who eats the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace offering that belongs to the Lord, while he is unclean, that person shall be cut off from his people.21Moreover the person who touches any unclean thing, such as human uncleanness, an unclean animal, or any abominable unclean thing, and who eats the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace offering that belongs to the Lord, that person shall be cut off from his people.' "22And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,23"Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'You shall not eat any fat, of ox or sheep or goat.24And the fat of an animal that dies naturally, and the fat of what is torn by wild beasts, may be used in any other way; but you shall by no means eat it.25For whoever eats the fat of the animal of which men offer an offering made by fire to the Lord, the person who eats it shall be cut off from his people.26Moreover you shall not eat any blood in any of your dwellings, whether of bird or beast.27Whoever eats any blood, that person shall be cut off from his people.' "28Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,29"Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'He who offers the sacrifice of his peace offering to the Lord shall bring his offering to the Lord from the sacrifice of his peace offering.30His own hands shall bring the offerings made by fire to the Lord. The fat with the breast he shall bring, that the breast may be waved as a wave offering before the Lord.31And the priest shall burn the fat on the altar, but the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'.32Also the right thigh you shall give to the priest as a heave offering from the sacrifices of your peace offerings.33He among the sons of Aaron, who offers the blood of the peace offering and the fat, shall have the right thigh for his part.34For the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the heave offering I have taken from the children of Israel, from the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and I have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons from the children of Israel by a statute forever.' "35This is the consecrated portion for Aaron and his sons, from the offerings made by fire to the Lord, on the day when Moses presented them to minister to the Lord as priests.36The Lord commanded this to be given to them by the children of Israel, on the day that He anointed them, by a statute forever throughout their generations.37This is the law of the burnt offering, the grain offering, the sin offering, the trespass offering, the consecrations, and the sacrifice of the peace offering,38which the Lord commanded Moses on Mount Sinai, on the day when He commanded the children of Israel to offer their offerings to the Lord in the Wilderness of Sinai.
1And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:2"Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, the anointing oil, a bull as the sin offering, two rams, and a basket of unleavened bread;3and gather all the congregation together at the door of the tabernacle of meeting."4So Moses did as the Lord commanded him. And the congregation was gathered together at the door of the tabernacle of meeting.5And Moses said to the congregation, "This is what the Lord commanded to be done."6Then Moses brought Aaron and his sons and washed them with water.7And he put the tunic on him, girded him with the sash, clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod on him; and he girded him with the intricately woven band of the ephod, and with it tied the ephod on him.8Then he put the breastplate on him, and he put the Urim and the Thummim in the breastplate.9And he put the turban on his head. Also on the turban, on its front, he put the golden plate, the holy crown, as the Lord had commanded Moses.10Also Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it, and consecrated them.11He sprinkled some of it on the altar seven times, anointed the altar and all its utensils, and the laver and its base, to consecrate them.12And he poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron's head and anointed him, to consecrate him.13Then Moses brought Aaron's sons and put tunics on them, girded them with sashes, and put hats on them, as the Lord had commanded Moses.14And he brought the bull for the sin offering. Then Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the bull for the sin offering,15and Moses killed it. Then he took the blood, and put some on the horns of the altar all around with his finger, and purified the altar. And he poured the blood at the base of the altar, and consecrated it, to make atonement for it.16Then he took all the fat that was on the entrails, the fatty lobe attached to the liver, and the two kidneys with their fat, and Moses burned them on the altar.17But the bull, its hide, its flesh, and its offal, he burned with fire outside the camp, as the Lord had commanded Moses.18Then he brought the ram as the burnt offering. And Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram,19and Moses killed it. Then he sprinkled the blood all around on the altar.20And he cut the ram into pieces; and Moses burned the head, the pieces, and the fat.21Then he washed the entrails and the legs in water. And Moses burned the whole ram on the altar. It was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet aroma, an offering made by fire to the Lord, as the Lord had commanded Moses.22And he brought the second ram, the ram of consecration. Then Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram,23and Moses killed it. Also he took some of its blood and put it on the tip of Aaron's right ear, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot.24Then he brought Aaron's sons. And Moses put some of the blood on the tips of their right ears, on the thumbs of their right hands, and on the big toes of their right feet. And Moses sprinkled the blood all around on the altar.25Then he took the fat and the fat tail, all the fat that was on the entrails, the fatty lobe attached to the liver, the two kidneys and their fat, and the right thigh;26and from the basket of unleavened bread that was before the Lord he took one unleavened cake, a cake of bread anointed with oil, and one wafer, and put them on the fat and on the right thigh;27and he put all these in Aaron's hands and in his sons' hands, and waved them as a wave offering before the Lord.28Then Moses took them from their hands and burned them on the altar, on the burnt offering. They were consecration offerings for a sweet aroma. That was an offering made by fire to the Lord.29And Moses took the breast and waved it as a wave offering before the Lord. It was Moses' part of the ram of consecration, as the Lord had commanded Moses.30Then Moses took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood which was on the altar, and sprinkled it on Aaron, on his garments, on his sons, and on the garments of his sons with him; and he consecrated Aaron, his garments, his sons, and the garments of his sons with him.31And Moses said to Aaron and his sons, "Boil the flesh at the door of the tabernacle of meeting, and eat it there with the bread that is in the basket of consecration offerings, as I commanded, saying, 'Aaron and his sons shall eat it.'32What remains of the flesh and of the bread you shall burn with fire.33And you shall not go outside the door of the tabernacle of meeting for seven days, until the days of your consecration are ended. For seven days he shall consecrate you.34As he has done this day, so the Lord has commanded to do, to make atonement for you.35Therefore you shall stay at the door of the tabernacle of meeting day and night for seven days, and keep the charge of the Lord, so that you may not die; for so I have been commanded."36So Aaron and his sons did all the things that the Lord had commanded by the hand of Moses.
1A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold.2The rich and the poor have this in common, The Lord is the maker of them all.3A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished.4By humility and the fear of the Lord Are riches and honor and life.5Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; He who guards his soul will be far from them.6Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.7The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender.8He who sows iniquity will reap sorrow, And the rod of his anger will fail.9He who has a generous eye will be blessed, For he gives of his bread to the poor.10Cast out the scoffer, and contention will leave; Yes, strife and reproach will cease.11He who loves purity of heart And has grace on his lips, The king will be his friend.12The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge, But He overthrows the words of the faithless.13The lazy man says, "There is a lion outside! I shall be slain in the streets!"14The mouth of an immoral woman is a deep pit; He who is abhorred by the Lord will fall there.15Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him.16He who oppresses the poor to increase his riches, And he who gives to the rich, will surely come to poverty.17Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, And apply your heart to my knowledge;18For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; Let them all be fixed upon your lips,19So that your trust may be in the Lord; I have instructed you today, even you.20Have I not written to you excellent things Of counsels and knowledge,21That I may make you know the certainty of the words of truth, That you may answer words of truth To those who send to you?22Do not rob the poor because he is poor, Nor oppress the afflicted at the gate;23For the Lord will plead their cause, And plunder the soul of those who plunder them.24Make no friendship with an angry man, And with a furious man do not go,25Lest you learn his ways And set a snare for your soul.26Do not be one of those who shakes hands in a pledge, One of those who is surety for debts;27If you have nothing with which to pay, Why should he take away your bed from under you?28Do not remove the ancient landmark Which your fathers have set.29Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men.
