Genesis 49:1-33
1. And Jacob called his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, and I will tell you what will befall you at the end of days.
2. Assemble yourselves, and hear, ye sons of Jacob, And listen to Israel your father.
3. Reuben, thou art my firstborn, My might, and the firstfruits of my vigour: Excellency of dignity, and excellency of strength.
4. Impetuous as the waters, thou shalt have no pre-eminence; Because thou wentest up to thy father's couch: Then defiledst thou [it]: he went up to my bed.
5. Simeon and Levi are brethren: Instruments of violence their swords.
6. My soul, come not into their council; Mine honour, be not united with their assembly; For in their anger they slew men, And in their wantonness houghed oxen.
7. Cursed be their anger, for it [was] violent; And their rage, for it [was] cruel! I will divide them in Jacob, And scatter them in Israel.
8. Judah [as to] thee, thy brethren will praise thee; Thy hand will be upon the neck of thine enemies; Thy father's children will bow down to thee.
9. Judah is a young lion; From the prey, my son, thou art gone up. He stoopeth, he layeth himself down as a lion, And as a lioness: who will rouse him up?
10. The scepter will not depart from Judah, Nor the lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh come, And to him will be the obedience of peoples.
11. He bindeth his foal to the vine, And his ass's colt to the choice vine; He washeth his dress in wine, And his garment in the blood of grapes.
12. The eyes are red with wine, And the teeth [are] white with milk.
13. Zebulun will dwell at the shore of the seas; Yea, he will be at the shore of the ships, And his side [toucheth] upon Sidon.
14. Issachar is a bony ass, Crouching down between two hurdles.
15. And he saw the rest that it was good, And the land that it was pleasant; And he bowed his shoulder to bear, And was a tributary servant.
16. Dan will judge his people, As another of the tribes of Israel.
17. Dan will be a serpent on the way, A horned snake on the path, Which biteth the horse's heels, So that the rider falleth backwards.
18. I wait for thy salvation, O Jehovah.
19. Gad troops will rush upon him; But he will rush upon the heel.
20. Out of Asher, his bread shall be fat, And he will give royal dainties.
21. Naphtali is a hind let loose; He giveth goodly words.
22. Joseph is a fruitful bough; A fruitful bough by a well; [His] branches shoot over the wall.
23. The archers have provoked him, And shot at, and hated him;
24. But his bow abideth firm, And the arms of his hands are supple By the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob. From thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:
25. From the God of thy father, and he will help thee; And from the Almighty, and he will bless thee With blessings of heaven from above, With blessings of the deep that lieth under, With blessings of the breast and of the womb.
26. The blessings of thy father surpass the blessings of my ancestors, Unto the bounds of the everlasting hills: They shall be on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him that was separated from his brethren.
27. Benjamin [as] a wolf will he tear to pieces; In the morning he will devour the prey, And in the evening he will divide the booty.
28. All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them; and he blessed them: every one according to his blessing he blessed them.
29. And he charged them, and said to them, I am gathered to my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,
30. in the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is opposite to Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought of Ephron the Hittite along with the field for a possession of a sepulchre.
31. There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebecca his wife; and there I buried Leah.
32. The purchase of the field, and of the cave that is in it, was from the children of Heth.
33. And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered his feet into the bed, and expired, and was gathered to his peoples.

Genesis 50:1-26
1. And Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept upon him, and kissed him.
2. And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father. And the physicians embalmed Israel.
3. And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those who are embalmed. And the Egyptians mourned for him seventy days.
4. And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spoke to the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found favour in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,
5. My father made me swear, saying, Behold, I die; in my grave which I have dug myself in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me. And now, let me go up, I pray thee, that I may bury my father; and I will come again.
6. And Pharaoh said, Go up and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear.
7. And Joseph went up to bury his father; and with him went up all the bondmen of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt,
8. and all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his father's house; only their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left in the land of Goshen.
9. And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen; and the camp was very great.
10. And they came to the threshing-floor of Atad, which is beyond the Jordan; and there they lamented with a great and very grievous lamentation; and he made a mourning for his father of seven days.
11. And the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning at the threshing-floor of Atad, and they said, This is a grievous mourning of the Egyptians. Therefore the name of it was called Abel-Mizraim, which is beyond the Jordan.
12. And his sons did to him according as he had commanded them;
13. and his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah which Abraham had bought along with the field, for a possession of a sepulchre, of Ephron the Hittite, opposite to Mamre.
14. And, after he had buried his father, Joseph returned to Egypt, he and his brethren, and all that had gone up with him to bury his father.
15. And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, If now Joseph should be hostile to us, and should indeed requite us all the evil that we did to him!
16. And they sent a messenger to Joseph, saying, Thy father commanded before he died, saying,
17. Thus shall ye speak to Joseph: Oh forgive, I pray thee, the transgression of thy brethren, and their sin! for they did evil to thee. And now, we pray thee, forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spoke to him.
18. And his brethren also went and fell down before his face, and said, Behold, we are thy bondmen.
19. And Joseph said to them, Fear not: am I then in the place of God?
20. Ye indeed meant evil against me: God meant it for good, in order that he might do as [it is] this day, to save a great people alive.
21. And now, fear not: I will maintain you and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spoke consolingly to them.
22. And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he and his father's house; and Joseph lived a hundred and ten years.
23. And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third [generation]; the sons also of Machir the son of Manasseh were born on Joseph's knees.
24. And Joseph said to his brethren, I die; and God will certainly visit you, and bring you up out of this land, into the land that he swore unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
25. And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will certainly visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones hence.
26. And Joseph died, a hundred and ten years old; and they embalmed him; and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.

Psalms 14:1-7
1. {To the chief Musician. [A Psalm] of David.} The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They have corrupted themselves, they have done abominable works: there is none that doeth good.
2. Jehovah looked down from the heavens upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
3. They have all gone aside, they are together become corrupt: there is none that doeth good, not even one.
4. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, eating up my people [as] they eat bread? They call not upon Jehovah.
5. There were they in great fear; for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6. Ye have shamed the counsel of the afflicted, because Jehovah [was] his refuge.
7. Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When Jehovah turneth again the captivity of his people, Jacob shall be glad, Israel shall rejoice.

Proverbs 4:20-24
20. My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thy heart.
22. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23. Keep thy heart more than anything that is guarded; for out of it are the issues of life.
24. Put away from thee perverseness of mouth, and corrupt lips put far from thee.

Matthew 16:1-28
1. And the Pharisees and Sadducees, coming to [him], asked him, tempting [him], to shew them a sign out of heaven.
2. But he answering said to them, When evening is come, ye say, Fine weather, for the sky is red;
3. and in the morning, A storm to-day, for the sky is red [and] lowering; ye know [how] to discern the face of the sky, but ye cannot the signs of the times.
4. A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and a sign shall not be given to it save the sign of Jonas. And he left them and went away.
5. And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.
6. And Jesus said to them, See and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
7. And they reasoned among themselves, saying, Because we have taken no bread.
8. And Jesus knowing [it], said, Why reason ye among yourselves, O ye of little faith, because ye have taken no bread?
9. Do ye not yet understand nor remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many hand-baskets ye took [up]?
10. nor the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took [up]?
11. How do ye not understand that [it was] not concerning bread I said to you, Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees?
12. Then they comprehended that he did not speak of being beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
13. But when Jesus was come into the parts of Caesarea-Philippi, he demanded of his disciples, saying, Who do men say that I the Son of man am?
14. And they said, Some, John the baptist; and others, Elias; and others again, Jeremias or one of the prophets.
15. He says to them, But *ye*, who do ye say that I am?
16. And Simon Peter answering said, *Thou* art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17. And Jesus answering said to him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona, for flesh and blood has not revealed [it] to thee, but my Father who is in the heavens.
18. And *I* also, I say unto thee that *thou* art Peter, and on this rock I will build my assembly, and hades' gates shall not prevail against it.
19. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of the heavens; and whatsoever thou mayest bind upon the earth shall be bound in the heavens; and whatsoever thou mayest loose on the earth shall be loosed in the heavens.
20. Then he enjoined on his disciples that they should say to no man that he was the Christ.
21. From that time Jesus began to shew to his disciples that he must go away to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised.
22. And Peter taking him to [him] began to rebuke him, saying, [God] be favourable to thee, Lord; this shall in no wise be unto thee.
23. But turning round, he said to Peter, Get away behind me, Satan; thou art an offence to me, for thy mind is not on the things that are of God, but on the things that are of men.
24. Then Jesus said to his disciples, If any one desires to come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
25. For whosoever shall desire to save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it.
26. For what does a man profit, if he should gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
27. For the Son of man is about to come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he will render to each according to his doings.
28. Verily I say unto you, There are some of those standing here that shall not taste of death at all until they shall have seen the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
