Exodus 15:1-27
1. THEN MOSES and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord, saying, I will sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider or its chariot has He thrown into the sea.
2. The Lord is my Strength and my Song, and He has become my Salvation; this is my God, and I will praise Him, my father's God, and I will exalt Him.
3. The Lord is a Man of War; the Lord is His name.
4. Pharaoh's chariots and his host has He cast into the sea; his chosen captains also are sunk in the Red Sea.
5. The floods cover them; they sank in the depths [clad in mail] like a stone.
6. Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in power; Your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.
7. In the greatness of Your majesty You overthrow those rising against You. You send forth Your fury; it consumes them like stubble.
8. With the blast of Your nostrils the waters piled up, the floods stood fixed in a heap, the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea.
9. The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my desire shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10. You [Lord] blew with Your wind, the sea covered them; [clad in mail] they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
11. Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, doing wonders?
12. You stretched out Your right hand, the earth's [sea] swallowed them.
13. You in Your mercy and loving-kindness have led forth the people whom You have redeemed; You have guided them in Your strength to Your holy habitation.
14. The peoples have heard of it; they tremble; pangs have taken hold on the inhabitants of Philistia.
15. Now the chiefs of Edom are dismayed; the mighty men of Moab [renowned for strength], trembling takes hold of them; all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away--little by little.
16. Terror and dread fall upon them; because of the greatness of Your arm they are as still as a stone--till Your people pass by and over [into Canaan], O Lord, till the people pass by whom You have purchased.
17. You will bring them in [to the land] and plant them on Your own mountain, the place, O Lord, You have made for Your dwelling, the sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established.
18. The Lord will reign forever and ever.
19. For the horses of Pharaoh went with his chariots and horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought back the waters of the sea upon them, but the Israelites walked on dry ground in the midst of the sea.
20. Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after her with timbrels and dancing.
21. And Miriam responded to them, Sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously and is highly exalted; the horse and his rider He has thrown into the sea.
22. Then Moses led Israel onward from the Red Sea and they went into the Wilderness of Shur; they went three days [thirty-three miles] in the wilderness and found no water.
23. When they came to Marah, they could not drink its waters for they were bitter; therefore it was named Marah [bitterness].
24. The people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
25. And he cried to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree which he cast into the waters, and the waters were made sweet. There [the Lord] made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there He proved them,
26. Saying, If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God and will do what is right in His sight, and will listen to and obey His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord Who heals you.
27. And they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees; and they encamped there by the waters.

Exodus 16:1-36
1. THEY SET out from Elim, and all the congregation of Israel came to the Wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they left the land of Egypt.
2. And the whole congregation of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness,
3. And said to them, Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the fleshpots and ate bread to the full; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.
4. Then the Lord said to Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from the heavens for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in My law or not.
5. On the sixth day they shall prepare to bring in twice as much as they gather daily.
6. So Moses and Aaron said to all Israel, At evening you shall know that the Lord has brought you out from the land of Egypt,
7. And in the morning you shall see the glory of the Lord, for He hears your murmurings against the Lord. For what are we, that you murmur against us?
8. And Moses said, [This will happen] when the Lord gives you in the evening flesh to eat and in the morning bread to the full, because the Lord has heard your grumblings which you murmur against Him; what are we? Your murmurings are not against us, but against the Lord.
9. And Moses said to Aaron, Say to all the congregation of Israel, Come near before the Lord, for He has heard your murmurings.
10. And as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of Israel, they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud!
11. The Lord said to Moses,
12. I have heard the murmurings of the Israelites; speak to them, saying, At twilight you shall eat meat, and between the two evenings you shall be filled with bread; and you shall know that I am the Lord your God.
13. In the evening quails came up and covered the camp; and in the morning the dew lay round about the camp.
14. And when the dew had gone, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a fine, round and flakelike thing, as fine as hoarfrost on the ground.
15. When the Israelites saw it, they said one to another, Manna [What is it?]. For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, This is the bread which the Lord has given you to eat. [John 6:31, 33.]
16. This is what the Lord has commanded: Let every man gather of it as much as he will need, an omer for each person, according to the number of your persons; take it, every man for those in his tent.
17. The [people] did so, and gathered, some more, some less.
18. When they measured it with an omer, he who gathered much had nothing over, and he who gathered little had no lack; each gathered according to his need.
19. Moses said, Let none of it be left until morning.
20. But they did not listen to Moses; some of them left of it until morning, and it bred worms, became foul, and stank; and Moses was angry with them.
21. They gathered it every morning, each as much as he needed, for when the sun became hot it melted.
22. And on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each person; and all the leaders of the congregation came and told Moses.
23. He said to them, The Lord has said, Tomorrow is a solemn rest, a holy Sabbath to the Lord; bake and boil what you will bake and boil today; and all that remains over put aside for you to keep until morning.
24. They laid it aside till morning, as Moses told them; and it did not become foul, neither was it wormy.
25. Moses said, Eat that today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord. Today you shall find none in the field.
26. Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, the Sabbath, there shall be none.
27. On the seventh day some of the people went out to gather, but they found none.
28. The Lord said to Moses, How long do you [people] refuse to keep My commandments and My laws?
29. See, the Lord has given you the Sabbath; therefore He gives you on the sixth day the bread for two days; let every man remain in his place; let no man leave his place on the seventh day.
30. So the people rested on the seventh day.
31. The house of Israel called the bread manna; it was like coriander seed, white, and it tasted like wafers made with honey.
32. Moses said, This is what the Lord commands, Take an omer of it to be kept throughout your generations, that they may see the bread with which I fed you in the wilderness when I brought you out of the land of Egypt.
33. And Moses said to Aaron, Take a pot and put an omer of manna in it, and lay it up before the Lord, to be kept throughout your generations.
34. As the Lord commanded Moses, Aaron laid it up before the Testimony to be kept [in the ark]. [Heb. 9:4.]
35. And the Israelites ate manna forty years, until they came to a habitable land; they ate the manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan.
36. (Now an omer is the tenth of an ephah.)

Psalms 18:20-27
20. The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness (my conscious integrity and sincerity with Him); according to the cleanness of my hands has He recompensed me.
21. For I have kept the ways of the Lord and have not wickedly departed from my God.
22. For all His ordinances were before me, and I put not away His statutes from me.
23. I was upright before Him and blameless with Him, ever [on guard] to keep myself free from my sin and guilt.
24. Therefore has the Lord recompensed me according to my righteousness (my uprightness and right standing with Him), according to the cleanness of my hands in His sight.
25. With the kind and merciful You will show Yourself kind and merciful, with an upright man You will show Yourself upright,
26. With the pure You will show Yourself pure, and with the perverse You will show Yourself contrary.
27. For You deliver an afflicted and humble people but will bring down those with haughty looks.

Proverbs 6:12-15
12. A worthless person, a wicked man, is he who goes about with a perverse (contrary, wayward) mouth.
13. He winks with his eyes, he speaks by shuffling or tapping with his feet, he makes signs [to mislead and deceive] and teaches with his fingers.
14. Willful and contrary in his heart, he devises trouble, vexation, and evil continually; he lets loose discord and sows it.
15. Therefore upon him shall the crushing weight of calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken, and that without remedy.

Matthew 21:23-46
23. And when He entered the sacred enclosure of the temple, the chief priests and elders of the people came up to Him as He was teaching and said, By what power of authority are You doing these things, and who gave You this power of authority?
24. Jesus answered them, I also will ask you a question, and if you give Me the answer, then I also will tell you by what power of authority I do these things.
25. The baptism of John--from where was it? From heaven or from men? And they reasoned and argued with one another, If we say, From heaven, He will ask us, Why then did you not believe him?
26. But if we say, From men--we are afraid of and must reckon with the multitude, for they all regard John as a prophet.
27. So they answered Jesus, We do not know. And He said to them, Neither will I tell you by what power of authority I do these things.
28. What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He came to the first and said, Son, go and work today in the vineyard.
29. And he answered, I will not; but afterward he changed his mind and went.
30. Then the man came to the second and said the same [thing]. And he replied, I will [go], sir; but he did not go.
31. Which of the two did the will of the father? They replied, The first one. Jesus said to them, Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the harlots will get into the kingdom of heaven before you.
32. For John came to you walking in the way of an upright man in right standing with God, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the harlots did believe him; and you, even when you saw that, did not afterward change your minds and believe him [adhere to, trust in, and rely on what he told you].
33. Listen to another parable: There was a master of a house who planted a vineyard and put a hedge around it and dug a wine vat in it and built a watchtower. Then he let it out [for rent] to tenants and went into another country.
34. When the fruit season drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants to get his [share of the] fruit.
35. But the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another.
36. Again he sent other servants, more than the first time, and they treated them the same way.
37. Finally he sent his own son to them, saying, They will respect and give heed to my son.
38. But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, This is the heir; come on, let us kill him and have his inheritance.
39. And they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.
40. Now when the owner of the vineyard comes back, what will he do to those tenants?
41. They said to Him, He will put those wretches to a miserable death and rent the vineyard to other tenants of such a character that they will give him the fruits promptly in their season. [Isa. 5:1-7.]
42. Jesus asked them, Have you never read in the Scriptures: The very Stone which the builders rejected and threw away has become the Cornerstone; this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? [Ps. 118:22, 23.]
43. I tell you, for this reason the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce the fruits of it.
44. And whoever falls on this Stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom It falls will be crushed to powder [and It will winnow him, scattering him like dust]. [Isa. 8:14; Dan. 2:34, 35.]
45. And when the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables (comparisons, stories used to illustrate and explain), they perceived that He was talking about them.
46. And although they were trying to arrest Him, they feared the throngs because they regarded Him as a prophet.
