22Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away.23And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.24But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary.25Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea.26And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear.27But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, "Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid."28And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water."29So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.30But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"31And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"32And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.33Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, "Truly You are the Son of God."34When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret.35And when the men of that place recognized Him, they sent out into all that surrounding region, brought to Him all who were sick,36and begged Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched it were made perfectly well.
1Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,2"Speak to Aaron and his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel, and that they do not profane My holy name by what they dedicate to Me: I am the Lord.3Say to them: 'Whoever of all your descendants throughout your generations, who goes near the holy things which the children of Israel dedicate to the Lord, while he has uncleanness upon him, that person shall be cut off from My presence: I am the Lord.4Whatever man of the descendants of Aaron, who is a leper or has a discharge, shall not eat the holy offerings until he is clean. And whoever touches anything made unclean by a corpse, or a man who has had an emission of semen,5or whoever touches any creeping thing by which he would be made unclean, or any person by whom he would become unclean, whatever his uncleanness may be--6the person who has touched any such thing shall be unclean until evening, and shall not eat the holy offerings unless he washes his body with water.7And when the sun goes down he shall be clean; and afterward he may eat the holy offerings, because it is his food.8Whatever dies naturally or is torn by beasts he shall not eat, to defile himself with it: I am the Lord.9They shall therefore keep My ordinance, lest they bear sin for it and die thereby, if they profane it: I the Lord sanctify them.10'No outsider shall eat the holy offering; one who dwells with the priest, or a hired servant, shall not eat the holy thing.11But if the priest buys a person with his money, he may eat it; and one who is born in his house may eat his food.12If the priest's daughter is married to an outsider, she may not eat of the holy offerings.13But if the priest's daughter is a widow or divorced, and has no child, and has returned to her father's house as in her youth, she may eat her father's food; but no outsider shall eat it.14'And if a man eats the holy offering unintentionally, then he shall restore a holy offering to the priest, and add one-fifth to it.15They shall not profane the holy offerings of the children of Israel, which they offer to the Lord,16or allow them to bear the guilt of trespass when they eat their holy offerings; for I the Lord sanctify them.' "17And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,18"Speak to Aaron and his sons, and to all the children of Israel, and say to them: 'Whatever man of the house of Israel, or of the strangers in Israel, who offers his sacrifice for any of his vows or for any of his freewill offerings, which they offer to the Lord as a burnt offering--19you shall offer of your own free will a male without blemish from the cattle, from the sheep, or from the goats.20Whatever has a defect, you shall not offer, for it shall not be acceptable on your behalf.21And whoever offers a sacrifice of a peace offering to the Lord, to fulfill his vow, or a freewill offering from the cattle or the sheep, it must be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no defect in it.22Those that are blind or broken or maimed, or have an ulcer or eczema or scabs, you shall not offer to the Lord, nor make an offering by fire of them on the altar to the Lord.23Either a bull or a lamb that has any limb too long or too short you may offer as a freewill offering, but for a vow it shall not be accepted.24You shall not offer to the Lord what is bruised or crushed, or torn or cut; nor shall you make any offering of them in your land.25Nor from a foreigner's hand shall you offer any of these as the bread of your God, because their corruption is in them, and defects are in them. They shall not be accepted on your behalf.' "26And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:27"When a bull or a sheep or a goat is born, it shall be seven days with its mother; and from the eighth day and thereafter it shall be accepted as an offering made by fire to the Lord.28Whether it is a cow or ewe, do not kill both her and her young on the same day.29And when you offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the Lord, offer it of your own free will.30On the same day it shall be eaten; you shall leave none of it until morning: I am the Lord.31"Therefore you shall keep My commandments, and perform them: I am the Lord.32You shall not profane My holy name, but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel. I am the Lord who sanctifies you,33who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the Lord."
1And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,2"Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: 'The feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.3'Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation. You shall do no work on it; it is the Sabbath of the Lord in all your dwellings.4'These are the feasts of the Lord, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times5On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the Lord's Passover.6And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; seven days you must eat unleavened bread.7On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.8But you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord for seven days. The seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.' "9And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,10"Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: 'When you come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest.11He shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted on your behalf; on the day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it.12And you shall offer on that day, when you wave the sheaf, a male lamb of the first year, without blemish, as a burnt offering to the Lord.13Its grain offering shall be two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to the Lord, for a sweet aroma; and its drink offering shall be of wine, one-fourth of a hin.14You shall eat neither bread nor parched grain nor fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your God; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings15'And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering: seven Sabbaths shall be completed.16Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the Lord.17You shall bring from your dwellings two wave loaves of two-tenths of an ephah. They shall be of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven. They are the firstfruits to the Lord.18And you shall offer with the bread seven lambs of the first year, without blemish, one young bull, and two rams. They shall be as a burnt offering to the Lord, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, an offering made by fire for a sweet aroma to the Lord.19Then you shall sacrifice one kid of the goats as a sin offering, and two male lambs of the first year as a sacrifice of a peace offering20The priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits as a wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs. They shall be holy to the Lord for the priest.21And you shall proclaim on the same day that it is a holy convocation to you. You shall do no customary work on it. It shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations22'When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field when you reap, nor shall you gather any gleaning from your harvest. You shall leave them for the poor and for the stranger: I am the Lord your God.' "23Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,24"Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.25You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.' "26And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:27"Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.28And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God.29For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people.30And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people.31You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.32It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath."33Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,34"Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord.35On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it.36For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. It is a sacred assembly, and you shall do no customary work on it37These are the feasts of the Lord which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire to the Lord, a burnt offering and a grain offering, a sacrifice and drink offerings, everything on its day--38besides the Sabbaths of the Lord, besides your gifts, besides all your vows, and besides all your freewill offerings which you give to the Lord39'Also on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep the feast of the Lord for seven days; on the first day there shall be a sabbath-rest, and on the eighth day a sabbath-rest.40And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days.41You shall keep it as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month.42You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native Israelites shall dwell in booths,43that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.' "44So Moses declared to the children of Israel the feasts of the Lord.
1The words of King Lemuel, the utterance which his mother taught him:2What, my son? And what, son of my womb? And what, son of my vows?3Do not give your strength to women, Nor your ways to that which destroys kings.4It is not for kings, O Lemuel, It is not for kings to drink wine, Nor for princes intoxicating drink;5Lest they drink and forget the law, And pervert the justice of all the afflicted.6Give strong drink to him who is perishing, And wine to those who are bitter of heart.7Let him drink and forget his poverty, And remember his misery no more.8Open your mouth for the speechless, In the cause of all who are appointed to die. 9Open your mouth, judge righteously, And plead the cause of the poor and needy.10Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies.11The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain.12She does him good and not evil All the days of her life.13She seeks wool and flax, And willingly works with her hands.14She is like the merchant ships, She brings her food from afar.15She also rises while it is yet night, And provides food for her household, And a portion for her maidservants.16She considers a field and buys it; From her profits she plants a vineyard.17She girds herself with strength, And strengthens her arms.18She perceives that her merchandise is good, And her lamp does not go out by night.19She stretches out her hands to the distaff, And her hand holds the spindle.20She extends her hand to the poor, Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.21She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household is clothed with scarlet.22She makes tapestry for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple.23Her husband is known in the gates, When he sits among the elders of the land.24She makes linen garments and sells them, And supplies sashes for the merchants.25Strength and honor are her clothing; She shall rejoice in time to come.26She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness.27She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness.28Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her:29"Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all."30Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.31Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates.
