1 Chronicles 13; 1 Chronicles 14; 1 Chronicles 15; John 7:1-27

1 David consulted with the captains of thousands, and of hundreds, and with all the commanders. 2 And he said to all the assembly of Israel: If it please you; and if the words which I speak come from the Lord our God, let us send to the rest of our brethren into all the countries of Israel, and to the priests, and the Levites, that dwell in the suburbs of the cities, to gather themselves to us, 3 And let us bring again the ark of our God to us: for we sought it not in the days of Saul. 4 And all the multitude answered that it should be so: for the word pleased all the people. 5 So David assembled all Israel from Sihor of Egypt, even to the entering into Emath, to bring the ark of God from Cariathiarim. 6 And David went up with all the men of Israel to the hill of Cariathiarim which is in Juda, to bring thence the ark of the Lord God sitting upon the cherubims, where his name is called upon. 7 And they carried the ark of God upon a new cart out of the house of Abinadab. And Oza and his brother drove the cart. 8 And David and all Israel played before God with all their might with hymns, and with harps, and with psalteries, and timbrels, and cymbals, and trumpets, 9 And when they came to the floor of Chidon, Oza put forth his hand, to hold up the ark: for the ox being wanton had made it lean a little on one side. 10 And the Lord was angry with Oza, and struck him, because he had touched the ark; and he died there before the Lord. 11 And David was troubled because the Lord had divided Oza: and he called that place the Breach of Oza to this day. 12 And he feared God at that time, saying: How can I bring in the ark of God to me? 13 And therefore he brought it not home to himself, that is, into the city of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gethite. 14 And the ark of God remained in the house of Obededom three months: and the Lord blessed his house, and all that he had.
1 And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and masons, and carpenters, to build him a house. 2 And David perceived that the Lord had confirmed him king over Israel, and that his kingdom was exalted over his people Israel. 3 And David took other wives in Jerusalem: and he begot sons, and daughters. 4 Now these are the names of them that were born to him in Jerusalem: Samua, and Sobad, Nathan, and Solomon, 5 Jebahar, and Elisua, and Eliphalet, 6 And Noga, and Napheg, and Japhia, 7 Elisama, and Baaliada, and Eliphalet. 8 And the Philistines hearing that David was anointed king over all Israel, went all up to seek him: and David heard of it, and went out against them. 9 And the Philistines came and spread themselves in the vale of Raphaim. 10 And David consulted the Lord, saying: Shall I go up against the Philistines, and wilt thou deliver them into my hand? And the Lord said to him: Go up, and I will deliver them into thy hand. 11 And when they were come to Baalpharasim, David defeated them there, and he said: God hath divided my enemies by my hand, as waters are divided: and therefore the name of that place was called Baalpharasim. 12 And they left there their gods, and David commanded that they should be burnt. 13 Another time also the Philistines made an irruption, and spread themselves abroad in the valley. 14 And David consulted God again, and God said to him: Go not up after them, turn away from them, and come upon them over against the pear trees. 15 And when thou shalt hear the sound of one going in the tops of the pear trees, then shalt thou go out to battle. For God is gone out before thee to strike the army of the Philistines. 16 And David did as God had commanded him, and defeated the army of the Philistines, slaying them from Gabaon to Gazera. 17 And the name of David became famous in all countries, and the Lord made all nations fear aim.
1 He made also houses for himself in the city of David: and built a place for the ark of God, and pitched a tabernacle for it. 2 Then David said: No one ought to carry the ark of God, but the Levites, whom the Lord hath chosen to carry it, and to minister unto himself for ever. 3 And he gathered all Israel together into Jerusalem, that the ark of God might be brought into its place, which he had prepared for it. 4 And the sons of Aaron also, and the Levites. 5 Of the children of Caath, Uriel was the chief, and his brethren a hundred and twenty. 6 Of the sons of Merari, Asaia the chief, and his brethren two hundred and twenty. 7 Of the sons of Gersom, Joel the chief, and his brethren a hundred and thirty. 8 Of the sons of Elisaphan, Semeias the chief: and his brethren two hundred. 9 Of the sons of Hebron, Eliel the chief: and his brethren eighty. 10 Of the sons of Oziel, Aminadab the chief: and his brethren a hundred and twelve. 11 And David called Sadoc, and Abiathar the priests, and the Levites, Uriel, Asaia, Joel, Semeia, Eliel, and Aminadab: 12 And he said to them: You that are the heads of the Levitical families, be sanctified with your brethren, and bring the ark of the Lord the God of Israel to the place, which is prepared for it: 13 Lest as the Lord at first struck us, because you were not present, the same should now also come to pass, by our doing some thing against the law. 14 So the priests and the Levites were sanctified, to carry the ark of the Lord the God of Israel. 15 And the sons of Levi took the ark of God as Moses had commanded, according to the word of the Lord, upon their shoulders, with the staves. 16 And David spoke to the chiefs of the Levites, to appoint some of their brethren to be singers with musical instruments, to wit, on psalteries, and harps, and cymbals, that the joyful noise might resound on high. 17 And they appointed Levites, Hemam the son of Joel, and of his brethren Asaph the son of Barachias: and of the sons of Merari, their brethren: Ethan the son of Casaia. 18 And with them their brethren: in the second rank, Zacharias, and Ben, and Jaziel, and Semiramoth, and Jahiel, and Ani, and Eliab, and Banaias, and Maasias, and Mathathias, and Eliphalu, and Macenias, and Obededom, and Jehiel, the porters. 19 Now the singers, Heman, Asaph, and Ethan, sounded with cymbals of brass. 20 And Zacharias, and Oziel, and Semiramoth, and Jehiel, and Ani, and Eliab, and Maasias, and Banaias, sung mysteries upon psalteries. 21 And Mathathias, and Eliphalu, and Macenias and Obededom, and Jehiel and Ozaziu, sung a song of victory for the octave upon harps. 22 And Chonenias chief of the Levites, presided over the prophecy, to give out the tunes: for he was very skilful. 23 And Barachias, and Elcana, were doorkeepers of the ark. 24 And Sebenias, and Josaphat, and Nathanael, and Amasai, and Zacharias, and Banaias, and Eliezer the priests, sounded with trumpets, before the ark of God: and Obededom and Jehias were porters of the ark. 25 So David and all the ancients of Israel, and the captains over thousands, went to bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord out of the house of Obededom with joy. 26 And when God had helped the Levites who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord, they offered in sacrifice seven oxen, and seven rams. 27 And David was clothed with a robe of fine linen, and all the Levites that carried the ark, and the singing men, and Chonenias the ruler of the prophecy among the singers: and David also had on him an ephod of linen. 28 And all Israel brought the ark of the covenant of the Lord with joyful shouting, and sounding with the sound of the cornet, and with trumpets, and cymbals, and psalteries, and harps. 29 And when the ark of the covenant of the Lord was come to the city of David, Michol the daughter of Saul looking out at a window, saw king David dancing and playing, and she despised him in her heart.
1 After these things, Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2 Now the Jews feast of tabernacles was at hand. 3 And his brethren said to, him: Pass from hence and go into Judea, that thy disciples also may see thy works which thou dost. 4 For there is no man that doth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, manifest thyself to the world. 5 For neither did his brethren believe in him. 6 Then Jesus said to them: My time is not yet come; but your time is always ready. 7 The world cannot hate you: but me it hateth, because I give testimony of it, that the works thereof are evil, 8 Go you up to this festival day: but I go not up to this festival day, because my time is not accomplished. 9 When he had said these things, he himself stayed in Galilee. 10 But after his brethren were gone up, then he also went up to the feast, not openly, but, as it were, in secret. 11 The Jews therefore sought him on the festival day and said: Where is he? 12 And there was much murmuring among the multitude concerning him. For some said: He is a good man. And others said: No, but he seduceth the people. 13 Yet no man spoke openly of him, for fear of the Jews. 14 Now, about the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple and taught. 15 And the Jews wondered, saying: How doth this man know letters, having never learned? 16 Jesus answered them and said: My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 17 If any man will do the will of him, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. 18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh the glory of him that sent him, he is true and there is no injustice in him. 19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? 20 Why seek you to kill me? The multitude answered and said: Thou hast a devil. Who seeketh to kill thee? 21 Jesus answered and said to them: One work I have done: and you all wonder. 22 Therefore, Moses gave you circumcision (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers): and on the sabbath day you circumcise a man. 23 If a man receive circumcision on the sabbath day, that the law of Moses may not be broken: are you angry at me, because I have healed the whole man on the sabbath day? 24 Judge not according to the appearance: but judge just judgment. 25 Some therefore of Jerusalem said: Is not this he whom they seek to kill? 26 And behold, he speaketh openly: and they say nothing to him. Have the rulers known for a truth that this is the Christ? 27 But we know this man, whence he is: but when the Christ cometh, no man knoweth, whence he is.
