Deuteronomy 25:1-19
1. If there be a controversy between men, and they resort to judgment, and they judge [their case]; then they shall justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked.
2. And it shall be if the wicked man have deserved to be beaten, that the judge shall cause him to lie down, and be beaten before his face, according to the measure of his wickedness with a certain number [of stripes].
3. With forty [stripes] shall they beat him; they shall not exceed, lest, if they continue to beat him with many stripes above these, thy brother become despicable in thine eyes.
4. Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out [the corn].
5. If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no son, the wife of the dead shall not marry a stranger abroad: her husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him as wife, and perform the duty of a husband's brother unto her.
6. And it shall be, that the firstborn that she beareth shall stand in the name of his brother who is dead, that his name be not blotted out from Israel.
7. But if the man like not to take his brother's wife, his brother's wife shall go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, My husband's brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel: he will not perform for me the duty of a husband's brother.
8. Then the elders of his city shall call him and speak unto him; and if he stand to it and say, I like not to take her;
9. then shall his brother's wife come near to him before the eyes of the elders, and draw his sandal from his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto the man that will not build up his brother's house.
10. And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe drawn off.
11. When men fight together one with another, and the wife of the one come near to rescue her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and stretch out her hand, and seize him by his secret parts,
12. thou shalt cut off her hand; thine eye shall not spare.
13. Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small.
14. Thou shalt not have in thy house divers ephahs, a great and a small.
15. A perfect and just weight shalt thou have; a perfect and just ephah shalt thou have; that thy days may be prolonged in the land that Jehovah thy God giveth thee.
16. For every one that doeth such things, every one that doeth unrighteousness, is an abomination to Jehovah thy God.
17. Remember what Amalek did unto thee on the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt;
18. how he met thee on the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, all the feeble that lagged behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary, and he feared not God.
19. And it shall be, when Jehovah thy God shall have given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land that Jehovah thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under the heavens; thou shalt not forget it.

Deuteronomy 26:1-19
1. And it shall be when thou comest into the land that Jehovah thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and possessest it, and dwellest therein,
2. that thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the ground, which thou shalt bring of thy land which Jehovah thy God giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto the place that Jehovah thy God will choose to cause his name to dwell there;
3. and thou shalt come unto the priest that shall be in those days, and say unto him, I profess this day unto Jehovah thy God, that I am come unto the land that Jehovah swore unto our fathers to give us.
4. And the priest shall take the basket out of thy hand, and set it down before the altar of Jehovah thy God.
5. And thou shalt speak and say before Jehovah thy God, A perishing Aramean was my father, and he went down to Egypt with a few, and sojourned there, and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous.
6. And the Egyptians evil-entreated us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage;
7. and we cried to Jehovah, the God of our fathers, and Jehovah heard our voice, and looked on our affliction, and our labour, and our oppression;
8. and Jehovah brought us forth out of Egypt with a powerful hand, and with a stretched-out arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders;
9. and he hath brought us into this place, and hath given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey!
10. And now, behold, I have brought the first of the fruits of the land, which thou, Jehovah, hast given me. And thou shalt set it down before Jehovah thy God, and worship before Jehovah thy God.
11. And thou shalt rejoice in all the good that Jehovah thy God hath given to thee, and to thy house, thou, and the Levite, and the stranger that is in thy midst.
12. When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thy produce in the third year, the year of tithing, thou shalt give it to the Levite, to the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, that they may eat in thy gates, and be filled;
13. and thou shalt say before Jehovah thy God, I have brought away the hallowed things out of the house, and also have given them to the Levite, and to the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all thy commandment which thou hast commanded me; I have not transgressed nor forgotten [any] of thy commandments:
14. I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I brought away thereof in uncleanness, nor given thereof for a dead person; I have hearkened to the voice of Jehovah my God; I have done according to all that thou hast commanded me.
15. Look down from thy holy habitation, from the heavens, and bless thy people Israel, and the land that thou hast given us as thou didst swear unto our fathers, a land flowing with milk and honey!
16. This day Jehovah thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and ordinances; and thou shalt keep and do them with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
17. Thou hast this day accepted Jehovah to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his ordinances, and to hearken unto his voice;
18. and Jehovah hath accepted thee this day to be a people of possession to him, as he hath told thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments,
19. so that he should make thee high above all the nations which he hath made, in praise and in name and in honour; and that thou shouldest be a holy people to Jehovah thy God, as he hath said.

Psalms 39:7-11
7. And now, what wait I for, Lord? my hope is in thee.
8. Deliver me from all my transgressions; make me not the reproach of the foolish.
9. I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; for *thou* hast done [it].
10. Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thy hand.
11. When thou with rebukes dost correct a man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely, every man is vanity. Selah.

Proverbs 13:4-6
4. A sluggard's soul desireth and hath nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
5. A righteous [man] hateth lying; but the wicked maketh himself odious and cometh to shame.
6. Righteousness preserveth him that is perfect in the way; but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.

Luke 6:1-26
1. And it came to pass on [the] second-first sabbath, that he went through cornfields, and his disciples were plucking the ears and eating [them], rubbing [them] in their hands.
2. But some of the Pharisees said to them, Why do ye what is not lawful to do on the sabbath?
3. And Jesus answering said to them, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did when he hungered, he and those who were with him,
4. how he entered into the house of God and took the shewbread and ate, and gave to those also who were with him, which it is not lawful that [any] eat, unless the priests alone?
5. And he said to them, The Son of man is Lord of the sabbath also.
6. And it came to pass on another sabbath also that he entered into the synagogue and taught; and there was a man there, and his right hand was withered.
7. And the scribes and the Pharisees were watching if he would heal on the sabbath, that they might find something of which to accuse him.
8. But *he* knew their thoughts, and said to the man who had the withered hand, Get up, and stand in the midst. And having risen up he stood [there].
9. Jesus therefore said to them, I will ask you if it is lawful on the sabbath to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy [it]?
10. And having looked around on them all, he said to him, Stretch out thy hand. And he did [so] and his hand was restored as the other.
11. But *they* were filled with madness, and they spoke together among themselves what they should do to Jesus.
12. And it came to pass in those days that he went out into the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God.
13. And when it was day he called his disciples, and having chosen out twelve from them, whom also he named apostles:
14. Simon, to whom also he gave the name of Peter, and Andrew his brother, [and] James and John, [and] Philip and Bartholomew,
15. [and] Matthew and Thomas, James the [son] of Alphaeus and Simon who was called Zealot,
16. [and] Judas [brother] of James, and Judas Iscariote, who was also [his] betrayer;
17. and having descended with them, he stood on a level place, and a crowd of his disciples, and a great multitude of the people from all Judaea and Jerusalem, and the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;
18. and those that were beset by unclean spirits were healed.
19. And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power went out from him and healed all.
20. And *he*, lifting up his eyes upon his disciples, said, Blessed [are] ye poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
21. Blessed ye that hunger now, for ye shall be filled. Blessed ye that weep now, for ye shall laugh.
22. Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you [from them], and shall reproach [you], and cast out your name as wicked, for the Son of man's sake:
23. rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in the heaven, for after this manner did their fathers act toward the prophets.
24. But woe to you rich, for ye have received your consolation.
25. Woe to you that are filled, for ye shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, for ye shall mourn and weep.
26. Woe, when all men speak well of you, for after this manner did their fathers to the false prophets.
