1. ON THE first day of the seventh month [on New Year's Day of the civil year], you shall have a holy [summoned] assembly; you shall do no servile work. It is a day of blowing of trumpets for you [everyone blowing who wishes, proclaiming that the glad New Year has come and that the great Day of Atonement and the Feast of Tabernacles are now approaching].
2. And you shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet and pleasing odor to the Lord: one young bull, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old without blemish.

Numbers 30:1-16
1. AND MOSES said to the heads or leaders of the tribes of Israel, This is the thing which the Lord has commanded:
2. If a man vows a vow to the Lord or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break and profane his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.
3. Also when a woman vows a vow to the Lord and binds herself by a pledge, being in her father's house in her youth,
4. And her father hears her vow and her pledge with which she has bound herself and he offers no objection, then all her vows shall stand and every pledge with which she has bound herself shall stand.
5. But if her father refuses to allow her [to carry out her vow] on the day that he hears about it, not any of her vows or of her pledges with which she has bound herself shall stand. And the Lord will forgive her because her father refused to let her [carry out her purpose].
6. And if she is married to a husband while her vows are upon her or she has bound herself by a rash utterance
7. And her husband hears of it and holds his peace concerning it on the day that he hears it, then her vows shall stand and her pledge with which she bound herself shall stand.
8. But if her husband refuses to allow her [to keep her vow or pledge] on the day that he hears of it, then he shall make void and annul her vow which is upon her and the rash utterance of her lips by which she bound herself, and the Lord will forgive her.
9. But the vow of a widow or of a divorced woman, with which she has bound herself, shall stand against her.
10. And if she vowed in her husband's house or bound herself by a pledge with an oath
11. And her husband heard it and did not oppose or prohibit her, then all her vows and every pledge with which she bound herself shall stand.
12. But if her husband positively made them void on the day he heard them, then whatever proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows or concerning her pledge of herself shall not stand. Her husband has annulled them, and the Lord will forgive her.
13. Every vow and every binding oath to humble or afflict herself, her husband may establish it or her husband may annul it.
14. But if her husband altogether holds his peace [concerning the matter] with her from day to day, then he establishes and confirms all her vows or all her pledges which are upon her. He establishes them because he said nothing to [restrain] her on the day he heard of them.
15. But if he shall nullify them after he hears of them, then he shall be responsible for and bear her iniquity.
16. These are the statutes which the Lord commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, and between a father and his daughter while in her youth in her father's house.

Psalms 34:15-22
15. The eyes of the Lord are toward the [uncompromisingly] righteous and His ears are open to their cry.
16. The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. [I Pet. 3:10-12.]
17. When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their distress and troubles.
18. The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart and saves such as are crushed with sorrow for sin and are humbly and thoroughly penitent.
19. Many evils confront the [consistently] righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.
21. Evil shall cause the death of the wicked; and they who hate the just and righteous shall be held guilty and shall be condemned.
22. The Lord redeems the lives of His servants, and none of those who take refuge and trust in Him shall be condemned or held guilty.

Proverbs 11:30-31
30. The fruit of the [uncompromisingly] righteous is a tree of life, and he who is wise captures human lives [for God, as a fisher of men--he gathers and receives them for eternity]. [Matt. 4:19; I Cor. 9:19; James 5:20.]
31. Behold, the [uncompromisingly] righteous shall be recompensed on earth; how much more the wicked and the sinner! And if the righteous are barely saved, what will become of the ungodly and wicked? [I Pet. 4:18.]

Mark 14:27-54
27. And Jesus said to them, You will all fall away this night [that is, you will be caused to stumble and will begin to distrust and desert Me], for it stands written, I will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered. [Zech. 13:7.]
28. But after I am raised [to life], I will go before you into Galilee.
29. But Peter said to Him, Even if they all fall away and are caused to stumble and distrust and desert You, yet I will not [do so]!
30. And Jesus said to him, Truly I tell you, this very night, before a cock crows twice, you will utterly deny Me [disclaiming all connection with Me] three times.
31. But [Peter] said more vehemently and repeatedly, [Even] if it should be necessary for me to die with You, I will not deny or disown You! And they all kept saying the same thing.
32. Then they went to a place called Gethsemane, and He said to His disciples, Sit down here while I pray.
33. And He took with Him Peter and James and John, and began to be struck with terror and amazement and deeply troubled and depressed.
34. And He said to them, My soul is exceedingly sad (overwhelmed with grief) so that it almost kills Me! Remain here and keep awake and be watching.
35. And going a little farther, He fell on the ground and kept praying that if it were possible the [fatal] hour might pass from Him.
36. And He was saying, Abba, [which means] Father, everything is possible for You. Take away this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You [will].
37. And He came back and found them sleeping, and He said to Peter, Simon, are you asleep? Have you not the strength to keep awake and watch [with Me for] one hour?
38. Keep awake and watch and pray [constantly], that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
39. He went away again and prayed, saying the same words.
40. And again He came back and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they did not know what answer to give Him.
41. And He came back a third time and said to them, Are you still sleeping and resting? It is enough [of that]! The hour has come. The Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinful men (men whose way or nature is to act in opposition to God).
42. Get up, let us be going! See, My betrayer is at hand!
43. And at once, while He was still speaking, Judas came, one of the Twelve [apostles], and with him a crowd of men with swords and clubs, [who came] from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders [of the Sanhedrin].
44. Now the betrayer had given them a signal, saying, The One I shall kiss is [the Man]; seize Him and lead [Him] away safely [so as to prevent His escape].
45. And when he came, he went up to Jesus immediately and said, Master! Master! and he embraced Him and kissed Him fervently.
46. And they threw their hands on Him and arrested Him.
47. But one of the bystanders drew his sword and struck the bond servant of the high priest and cut off his ear.
48. And Jesus said to them, Have you come out with swords and clubs as [you would] against a robber to capture Me?
49. I was with you daily in the temple [porches and courts] teaching, and you did not seize Me; but [this has happened] that the Scriptures might be fulfilled.
50. Then [His disciples], forsaking Him, fled, all [of them].
51. And a young man was following Him, with nothing but a linen cloth (sheet) thrown about [his] naked [body]; and they laid hold of him,
52. But, leaving behind the linen cloth (sheet), he fled from them naked.
53. And they led Jesus away to the high priest, and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes were gathered together.
54. And Peter followed Him at a distance, even right into the courtyard of the high priest. And he was sitting [in the firelight] with the guards and warming himself at the fire.
