Exodus 1:1-22
1. And these are the names of the sons of Israel who had come into Egypt; with Jacob had they come, each with his household:
2. Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah;
3. Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin;
4. Dan and Naphtali; Gad and Asher.
5. And all the souls that had come out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls; and Joseph was in Egypt.
6. And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.
7. And the children of Israel were fruitful, and swarmed and multiplied, and became exceeding strong; and the land was full of them.
8. And there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph.
9. And he said to his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more numerous and stronger than we.
10. Come on, let us deal wisely with them, lest they multiply, and it come to pass that, if war occur, they take side with our enemies and fight against us, and go up out of the land.
11. And they set over them service-masters to oppress them with their burdens. And they built store-cities for Pharaoh, Pithom and Rameses.
12. But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and spread; and they were distressed because of the children of Israel.
13. And the Egyptians made the children of Israel serve with harshness;
14. and they embittered their life with hard labour in clay and bricks, and in all manner of labour in the field: all their labour with which they made them serve was with harshness.
15. And the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives of whom the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other was Puah
16. and he said, When ye help the Hebrew women in bearing, and see [them] on the stool, if it be a son, then ye shall kill him, but if a daughter, then she shall live.
17. But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt had said to them, but saved the male children alive.
18. And the king of Egypt called the midwives and said to them, Why have ye done this, and saved the male children alive?
19. And the midwives said to Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian; for they are strong, and they have borne before the midwife comes to them.
20. And God dealt well with the midwives; and the people multiplied and became very strong.
21. And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.
22. Then Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, but every daughter ye shall save alive.

Exodus 2:1-25
1. And a man of the house of Levi went and took a daughter of Levi.
2. And the woman conceived, and bore a son. And she saw him that he was fair, and hid him three months.
3. And when she could no longer hide him, she took for him an ark of reeds, and plastered it with resin and with pitch, and put the child in it, and laid [it] in the sedge on the bank of the river.
4. And his sister stood afar off to see what would happen to him.
5. And the daughter of Pharaoh went down to bathe in the river; and her maids went along by the river's side. And she saw the ark in the midst of the sedge, and sent her handmaid and fetched it.
6. And she opened [it], and saw the child, and behold, the boy wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is [one] of the Hebrews' children.
7. And his sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call thee a wet-nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?
8. And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the damsel went and called the child's mother.
9. And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Take this child away and nurse it for me, and I will give [thee] thy wages. And the woman took the child and nursed it.
10. And when the child was grown, she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses, and said, Because I drew him out of the water.
11. And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren and looked on their burdens; and he saw an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren.
12. And he turned this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he smote the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.
13. And he went out on the second day, and behold, two Hebrew men were quarrelling; and he said to him that was in the wrong, Why art thou smiting thy neighbour?
14. And he said, Who made thee ruler and judge over us? dost thou intend to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? Then Moses feared, and said, Surely the matter is known.
15. And Pharaoh heard of this matter, and sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from before Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian. And he sat by the well.
16. And the priest of Midian had seven daughters; and they came and drew [water], and filled the troughs, to water their father's flock.
17. And the shepherds came and drove them away; but Moses rose and helped them, and watered their flock.
18. And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, Why are ye come so soon to-day?
19. And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew [water] abundantly for us, and watered the flock.
20. And he said to his daughters, And where is he? why then have ye left the man behind? Call him, that he may eat bread.
21. And Moses consented to remain with the man; and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter.
22. And she bore a son, and he called his name Gershom; for he said, I have been a sojourner in a foreign land.
23. And it came to pass during those many days, that the king of Egypt died. And the children of Israel sighed because of the bondage, and cried; and their cry came up to God because of the bondage;
24. and God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob;
25. and God looked upon the children of Israel, and God acknowledged [them].

Psalms 15:1-5
1. {A Psalm of David.} Jehovah, who shall sojourn in thy tent? who shall dwell in the hill of thy holiness?
2. He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth from his heart.
3. [He that] slandereth not with his tongue, doeth not evil to his companion, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour;
4. In whose eyes the depraved person is contemned, and who honoureth them that fear Jehovah; who, if he have sworn to his own hurt, changeth it not;
5. [He that] putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these [things] shall never be moved.

Proverbs 4:25-27
25. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
26. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be well-ordered.
27. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left; remove thy foot from evil.

Matthew 17:1-27
1. And after six days Jesus takes with [him] Peter, and James, and John his brother, and brings them up into a high mountain apart.
2. And he was transfigured before them. And his face shone as the sun, and his garments became white as the light;
3. and lo, Moses and Elias appeared to them talking with him.
4. And Peter answering said to Jesus, Lord, it is good we should be here. If thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles: for thee one, and for Moses one, and one for Elias.
5. While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and lo, a voice out of the cloud, saying, *This* is my beloved Son, in whom I have found my delight: hear him.
6. And the disciples hearing [it] fell upon their faces, and were greatly terrified.
7. And Jesus coming to [them] touched them, and said, Rise up, and be not terrified.
8. And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus alone.
9. And as they descended from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no one, until the Son of man be risen up from among [the] dead.
10. And [his] disciples demanded of him saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first have come?
11. And he answering said to them, Elias indeed comes first and will restore all things.
12. But I say unto you that Elias has already come, and they have not known him, but have done unto him whatever they would. Thus also the Son of man is about to suffer from them.
13. Then the disciples understood that he spoke to them of John the baptist.
14. And when they came to the crowd, a man came to him, falling on his knees before him, and saying,
15. Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is lunatic, and suffers sorely; for often he falls into the fire and often into the water.
16. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they were not able to heal him.
17. And Jesus answering said, O unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to me.
18. And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon went out from him, and the boy was healed from that hour.
19. Then the disciples, coming to Jesus apart, said [to him], Why were not *we* able to cast him out?
20. And he says to them, Because of your unbelief; for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard [seed], ye shall say to this mountain, Be transported hence there, and it shall transport itself; and nothing shall be impossible to you.
21. But this kind does not go out but by prayer and fasting.
22. And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of man is about to be delivered up into [the] hands of men,
23. and they shall kill him; and the third day he shall be raised up. And they were greatly grieved.
24. And when they came to Capernaum, those who received the didrachmas came to Peter and said, Does your teacher not pay the didrachmas?
25. He says, Yes. And when he came into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, What dost thou think, Simon? the kings of the earth, from whom do they receive custom or tribute? from their own sons or from strangers?
26. Peter says to him, From strangers. Jesus said to him, Then are the sons free.
27. But that we may not be an offence to them, go to the sea and cast a hook, and take the first fish that comes up, and when thou hast opened its mouth thou wilt find a stater; take that and give it to them for me and thee.
