1When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.2And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean."3Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, "I am willing; be cleansed." Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.4And Jesus said to him, "See that you tell no one; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them."5Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him,6saying, "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented."7And Jesus said to him, "I will come and heal him."8The centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.9For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."10When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, "Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!11And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.12But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."13Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you." And his servant was healed that same hour.
1Of the blue, purple, and scarlet thread they made garments of ministry, for ministering in the holy place, and made the holy garments for Aaron, as the Lord had commanded Moses.2He made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and of fine woven linen.3And they beat the gold into thin sheets and cut it into threads, to work it in with the blue, purple, and scarlet thread and the fine linen, into artistic designs.4They made shoulder straps for it to couple it together; it was coupled together at its two edges.5And the intricately woven band of his ephod that was on it was of the same workmanship, woven of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and of fine woven linen, as the Lord had commanded Moses.6And they set onyx stones, enclosed in settings of gold; they were engraved, as signets are engraved, with the names of the sons of Israel.7He put them on the shoulders of the ephod as memorial stones for the sons of Israel, as the Lord had commanded Moses.8And he made the breastplate, artistically woven like the workmanship of the ephod, of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and of fine woven linen.9They made the breastplate square by doubling it; a span was its length and a span its width when doubled.10And they set in it four rows of stones: a row with a sardius, a topaz, and an emerald was the first row;11the second row, a turquoise, a sapphire, and a diamond;12the third row, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;13the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper. They were enclosed in settings of gold in their mountings.14There were twelve stones according to the names of the sons of Israel: according to their names, engraved like a signet, each one with its own name according to the twelve tribes.15And they made chains for the breastplate at the ends, like braided cords of pure gold.16They also made two settings of gold and two gold rings, and put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.17And they put the two braided chains of gold in the two rings on the ends of the breastplate.18The two ends of the two braided chains they fastened in the two settings, and put them on the shoulder straps of the ephod in the front.19And they made two rings of gold and put them on the two ends of the breastplate, on the edge of it, which was on the inward side of the ephod.20They made two other gold rings and put them on the two shoulder straps, underneath the ephod toward its front, right at the seam above the intricately woven band of the ephod.21And they bound the breastplate by means of its rings to the rings of the ephod with a blue cord, so that it would be above the intricately woven band of the ephod, and that the breastplate would not come loose from the ephod, as the Lord had commanded Moses.22He made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.23And there was an opening in the middle of the robe, like the opening in a coat of mail, with a woven binding all around the opening, so that it would not tear.24They made on the hem of the robe pomegranates of blue, purple, and scarlet, and of fine woven linen.25And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates on the hem of the robe all around between the pomegranates:26a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, all around the hem of the robe to minister in, as the Lord had commanded Moses.27They made tunics, artistically woven of fine linen, for Aaron and his sons,28a turban of fine linen, exquisite hats of fine linen, short trousers of fine woven linen,29and a sash of fine woven linen with blue, purple, and scarlet thread, made by a weaver, as the Lord had commanded Moses.30Then they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote on it an inscription like the engraving of a signet: HOLINESS TO THE LORD.31And they tied to it a blue cord, to fasten it above on the turban, as the Lord had commanded Moses.32Thus all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting was finished. And the children of Israel did according to all that the Lord had commanded Moses; so they did.33And they brought the tabernacle to Moses, the tent and all its furnishings: its clasps, its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets;34the covering of ram skins dyed red, the covering of badger skins, and the veil of the covering;35the ark of the Testimony with its poles, and the mercy seat;36the table, all its utensils, and the showbread;37the pure gold lampstand with its lamps (the lamps set in order), all its utensils, and the oil for light;38the gold altar, the anointing oil, and the sweet incense; the screen for the tabernacle door;39the bronze altar, its grate of bronze, its poles, and all its utensils; the laver with its base;40the hangings of the court, its pillars and its sockets, the screen for the court gate, its cords, and its pegs; all the utensils for the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of meeting;41and the garments of ministry, to minister in the holy place: the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons' garments, to minister as priests.42According to all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did all the work.43Then Moses looked over all the work, and indeed they had done it; as the Lord had commanded, just so they had done it. And Moses blessed them.
1Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:2"On the first day of the first month you shall set up the tabernacle of the tent of meeting.3You shall put in it the ark of the Testimony, and partition off the ark with the veil.4You shall bring in the table and arrange the things that are to be set in order on it; and you shall bring in the lampstand and light its lamps.5You shall also set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the Testimony, and put up the screen for the door of the tabernacle.6Then you shall set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting.7And you shall set the laver between the tabernacle of meeting and the altar, and put water in it.8You shall set up the court all around, and hang up the screen at the court gate.9And you shall take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it; and you shall hallow it and all its utensils, and it shall be holy.10You shall anoint the altar of the burnt offering and all its utensils, and consecrate the altar. The altar shall be most holy.11And you shall anoint the laver and its base, and consecrate it.12Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the door of the tabernacle of meeting and wash them with water.13You shall put the holy garments on Aaron, and anoint him and consecrate him, that he may minister to Me as priest.14And you shall bring his sons and clothe them with tunics.15You shall anoint them, as you anointed their father, that they may minister to Me as priests; for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations."16Thus Moses did; according to all that the Lord had commanded him, so he did.17And it came to pass in the first month of the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was raised up.18So Moses raised up the tabernacle, fastened its sockets, set up its boards, put in its bars, and raised up its pillars.19And he spread out the tent over the tabernacle and put the covering of the tent on top of it, as the Lord had commanded Moses.20He took the Testimony and put it into the ark, inserted the poles through the rings of the ark, and put the mercy seat on top of the ark.21And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, hung up the veil of the covering, and partitioned off the ark of the Testimony, as the Lord had commanded Moses.22He put the table in the tabernacle of meeting, on the north side of the tabernacle, outside the veil;23and he set the bread in order upon it before the Lord, as the Lord had commanded Moses.24He put the lampstand in the tabernacle of meeting, across from the table, on the south side of the tabernacle;25and he lit the lamps before the Lord, as the Lord had commanded Moses.26He put the gold altar in the tabernacle of meeting in front of the veil;27and he burned sweet incense on it, as the Lord had commanded Moses.28He hung up the screen at the door of the tabernacle.29And he put the altar of burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the grain offering, as the Lord had commanded Moses.30He set the laver between the tabernacle of meeting and the altar, and put water there for washing;31and Moses, Aaron, and his sons would wash their hands and their feet with water from it.32Whenever they went into the tabernacle of meeting, and when they came near the altar, they washed, as the Lord had commanded Moses.33And he raised up the court all around the tabernacle and the altar, and hung up the screen of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.34Then the cloud covered the tabernacle of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.35And Moses was not able to enter the tabernacle of meeting, because the cloud rested above it, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.36Whenever the cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle, the children of Israel would go onward in all their journeys.37But if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not journey till the day that it was taken up.38For the cloud of the Lord was above the tabernacle by day, and fire was over it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
1A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; He rages against all wise judgment.2A fool has no delight in understanding, But in expressing his own heart.3When the wicked comes, contempt comes also; And with dishonor comes reproach.4The words of a man's mouth are deep waters; The wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook.5It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, Or to overthrow the righteous in judgment.6A fool's lips enter into contention, And his mouth calls for blows.7A fool's mouth is his destruction, And his lips are the snare of his soul.8The words of a talebearer are like tasty trifles, And they go down into the inmost body.9He who is slothful in his work Is a brother to him who is a great destroyer.10The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.11The rich man's wealth is his strong city, And like a high wall in his own esteem.12Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, And before honor is humility.13He who answers a matter before he hears it, It is folly and shame to him.14The spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness, But who can bear a broken spirit?15The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.16A man's gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men.17The first one to plead his cause seems right, Until his neighbor comes and examines him.18Casting lots causes contentions to cease, And keeps the mighty apart.19A brother offended is harder to win than a strong city, And contentions are like the bars of a castle.20A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth, From the produce of his lips he shall be filled.21Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.22He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord.23The poor man uses entreaties, But the rich answers roughly.24A man who has friends must himself be friendly, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
