2 Chronicles 23:1-21
1. And in the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and took the captains of hundreds, Azariah the son of Jeroham, and Ishmael the son of Jehohanan, and Azariah the son of Obed, and Maaseiah the son of Adaiah, and Elishaphat the son of Zichri, into covenant with him.
2. And they went about in Judah, and gathered the Levites out of all the cities of Judah, and the heads of fathers houses of Israel, and they came to Jerusalem.
3. And all the assembly made a covenant with the king in the house of God. And he said unto them, Behold, the kings son shall reign, as Jehovah hath spoken concerning the sons of David.
4. This is the thing that ye shall do: a third part of you, that come in on the sabbath, of the priests and of the Levites, shall be porters of the thresholds;
5. and a third part shall be at the kings house; and a third part at the gate of the foundation: and all the people shall be in the courts of the house of Jehovah.
6. But let none come into the house of Jehovah, save the priests, and they that minister of the Levites; they shall come in, for they are holy: but all the people shall keep the charge of Jehovah.
7. And the Levites shall compass the king round about, every man with his weapons in his hand; and whosoever cometh into the house, let him be slain: and be ye with the king when he cometh in, and when he goeth out.
8. So the Levites and all Judah did according to all that Jehoiada the priest commanded: and they took every man his men, those that were to come in on the sabbath; with those that were to go out on the sabbath; for Jehoiada the priest dismissed not the courses.
9. And Jehoiada the priest delivered to the captains of hundreds the spears, and bucklers, and shields, that had been king Davids, which were in the house of God.
10. And he set all the people, every man with his weapon in his hand, from the right side of the house to the left side of the house, along by the altar and the house, by the king round about.
11. Then they brought out the kings son, and put the crown upon him, and gave him the testimony, and made him king: and Jehoiada and his sons anointed him; and they said, Long live the king.
12. And when Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came to the people into the house of Jehovah:
13. and she looked, and, behold, the king stood by his pillar at the entrance, and the captains and the trumpets by the king; and all the people of the land rejoiced, and blew trumpets; the singers also played on instruments of music, and led the singing of praise. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and said, Treason! treason!
14. And Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them, Have her forth between the ranks; and whoso followeth her, let him be slain with the sword: for the priest said, Slay her not in the house of Jehovah.
15. So they made way for her; and she went to the entrance of the horse gate to the kings house: and they slew her there.
16. And Jehoiada made a covenant between himself, and all the people, and the king, that they should be Jehovahs people.
17. And all the people went to the house of Baal, and brake it down, and brake his altars and his images in pieces, and slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars.
18. And Jehoiada appointed the officers of the house of Jehovah under the hand of the priests the Levites, whom David had distributed in the house of Jehovah, to offer the burnt-offerings of Jehovah, as it is written in the law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, according to the order of David.
19. And he set the porters at the gates of the house of Jehovah, that none that was unclean in anything should enter in.
20. And he took the captains of hundreds, and the nobles, and the governors of the people, and all the people of the land, and brought down the king from the house of Jehovah: and they came through the upper gate unto the kings house, and set the king upon the throne of the kingdom.
21. So all the people of the land rejoiced, and the city was quiet. And Athaliah they had slain with the sword.

2 Chronicles 24:1-27
1. Joash was seven years old when he began to reign; and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem: and his mothers name was Zibiah, of Beer-sheba.
2. And Joash did that which was right in the eyes of Jehovah all the days of Jehoiada the priest.
3. And Jehoiada took for him two wives; and he begat sons and daughters.
4. And it came to pass after this, that Joash was minded to restore the house of Jehovah.
5. And he gathered together the priests and the Levites, and said to them, Go out unto the cities of Judah, and gather of all Israel money to repair the house of your God from year to year; and see that ye hasten the matter. Howbeit the Levites hastened it not.
6. And the king called for Jehoiada the chief, and said unto him, Why hast thou not required of the Levites to bring in out of Judah and out of Jerusalem the tax of Moses the servant of Jehovah, and of the assembly of Israel, for the tent of the testimony?
7. For the sons of Athaliah, that wicked woman, had broken up the house of God; and also all the dedicated things of the house of Jehovah did they bestow upon the Baalim.
8. So the king commanded, and they made a chest, and set it without at the gate of the house of Jehovah.
9. And they made a proclamation through Judah and Jerusalem, to bring in for Jehovah the tax that Moses the servant of God laid upon Israel in the wilderness.
10. And all the princes and all the people rejoiced, and brought in, and cast into the chest, until they had made an end.
11. And it was so, that, at what time the chest was brought unto the kings officers by the hand of the Levites, and when they saw that there was much money, the kings scribe and the chief priests officer came and emptied the chest, and took it, and carried it to its place again. Thus they did day by day, and gathered money in abundance.
12. And the king and Jehoiada gave it to such as did the work of the service of the house of Jehovah; and they hired masons and carpenters to restore the house of Jehovah, and also such as wrought iron and brass to repair the house of Jehovah.
13. So the workmen wrought, and the work of repairing went forward in their hands, and they set up the house of God in its state, and strengthened it.
14. And when they had made an end, they brought the rest of the money before the king and Jehoiada, whereof were made vessels for the house of Jehovah, even vessels wherewith to minister and to offer, and spoons, and vessels of gold and silver. And they offered burnt-offerings in the house of Jehovah continually all the days of Jehoiada.
15. But Jehoiada waxed old and was full of days, and he died; a hundred and thirty years old was he when he died.
16. And they buried him in the city of David among the kings, because he had done good in Israel, and toward God and his house.
17. Now after the death of Jehoiada came the princes of Judah, and made obeisance to the king. Then the king hearkened unto them.
18. And they forsook the house of Jehovah, the God of their fathers, and served the Asherim and the idols: and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their guiltiness.
19. Yet he sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto Jehovah; and they testified against them: but they would not give ear.
20. And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest; and he stood above the people, and said unto them, Thus saith God, Why transgress ye the commandments of Jehovah, so that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken Jehovah, he hath also forsaken you.
21. And they conspired against him, and stoned him with stones at the commandment of the king in the court of the house of Jehovah.
22. Thus Joash the king remembered not the kindness which Jehoiada his father had done to him, but slew his son. And when he died, he said, Jehovah look upon it, and require it.
23. And it came to pass at the end of the year, that the army of the Syrians came up against him: and they came to Judah and Jerusalem, and destroyed all the princes of the people from among the people, and sent all the spoil of them unto the king of Damascus.
24. For the army of the Syrians came with a small company of men; and Jehovah delivered a very great host into their hand, because they had forsaken Jehovah, the God of their fathers. So they executed judgment upon Joash.
25. And when they were departed for him (for they left him very sick), his own servants conspired against him for the blood of the sons of Jehoiada the priest, and slew him on his bed, and he died; and they buried him in the city of David, but they buried him not in the sepulchres of the kings.
26. And these are they that conspired against him: Zabad the son of Shimeath the Ammonitess, and Jehozabad the son of Shimrith the Moabitess.
27. Now concerning his sons, and the greatness of the burdens laid upon him, and the rebuilding of the house of God, behold, they are written in the commentary of the book of the kings. And Amaziah his son reigned in his stead.

Psalms 83:9-18
9. Do thou unto them as unto Midian, As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon;
10. Who perished at Endor, Who became as dung for the earth.
11. Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb; Yea, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna;
12. Who said, Let us take to ourselves in possession The habitations of God.
13. O my God, make them like the whirling dust; As stubble before the wind.
14. As the fire that burneth the forest, And as the flame that setteth the mountains on fire,
15. So pursue them with thy tempest, And terrify them with thy storm.
16. Fill their faces with confusion, That they may seek thy name, O Jehovah.
17. Let them be put to shame and dismayed for ever; Yea, let them be confounded and perish;
18. That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the Most High over all the earth. Psalm 84 For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

Proverbs 21:2-3
2. Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; But Jehovah weigheth the hearts.
3. To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to Jehovah than sacrifice.

Acts 18:1-28
1. After these things he departed from Athens, and came to Corinth.
2. And he found a certain Jew named Aquila, a man of Pontus by race, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to depart from Rome: and he came unto them;
3. and because he was of the same trade, he abode with them, and they wrought, for by their trade they were tentmakers.
4. And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded Jews and Greeks.
5. But when Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul was constrained by the word, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ.
6. And when they opposed themselves and blasphemed, he shook out his raiment and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.
7. And he departed thence, and went into the house of a certain man named Titus Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.
8. And Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed in the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.
9. And the Lord said unto Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak and hold not thy peace:
10. for I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to harm thee: for I have much people in this city.
11. And he dwelt there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
12. But when Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews with one accord rose up against Paul and brought him before the judgment-seat,
13. saying, This man persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law.
14. But when Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If indeed it were a matter of wrong or of wicked villany, O ye Jews, reason would that I should bear with you:
15. but if they are questions about words and names and your own law, look to it yourselves; I am not minded to be a judge of these matters.
16. And he drove them from the judgment-seat.
17. And they all laid hold on Sosthenes, the ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment-seat. And Gallio cared for none of these things.
18. And Paul, having tarried after this yet many days, took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence for Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila: having shorn his head in Cenchreae; for he had a vow.
19. And they came to Ephesus, and he left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.
20. And when they asked him to abide a longer time, he consented not;
21. but taking his leave of them, and saying, I will return again unto you if God will, he set sail from Ephesus.
22. And when he had landed at Caesarea, he went up and saluted the church, and went down to Antioch.
23. And having spent some time there, he departed, and went through the region of Galatia, and Phrygia, in order, establishing all the disciples.
24. Now a certain Jew named Apollos, an Alexandrian by race, an eloquent man, came to Ephesus; and he was mighty in the scriptures.
25. This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spake and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus, knowing only the baptism of John:
26. and he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. But when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more accurately.
27. And when he was minded to pass over into Achaia, the brethren encouraged him, and wrote to the disciples to receive him: and when he was come, he helped them much that had believed through grace;
28. for he powerfully confuted the Jews, and that publicly, showing by the scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.
