Deuteronomy 13:1-18
1. If there arise among you a prophet, or one that dreameth dreams, and he give thee a sign or a wonder,
2. and the sign or the wonder come to pass that he told unto thee, when he said, Let us go after other gods, whom thou hast not known, and let us serve them,
3. thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams; for Jehovah your God proveth you, to know whether ye love Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
4. Ye shall walk after Jehovah your God, and ye shall fear him, and his commandments shall ye keep, and his voice shall ye hear; and ye shall serve him, and unto him shall ye cleave.
5. And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; for he hath spoken revolt against Jehovah your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to draw thee out of the way that Jehovah thy God commanded thee to walk in; and thou shalt put evil away from thy midst.
6. If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, who is to thee as thy soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods (whom thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;
7. of the gods of the peoples which are round about you, near unto thee, or far from thee, from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth),
8. thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye spare him, neither shalt thou pity him, neither shalt thou screen him,
9. but thou shalt in any case kill him: thy hand shall be the first against him to put him to death, and afterwards the hands of all the people;
10. and thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; for he hath sought to draw thee away from Jehovah thy God who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage;
11. and all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wicked thing as this in thy midst.
12. If in one of thy cities, which Jehovah thy God hath given thee to dwell there, thou hearest, saying,
13. There are men, children of Belial, gone out from among you, and they have drawn away the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, whom ye have not known;
14. then shalt thou inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and if it be truth, [and] the thing be certain, that this abomination hath happened in the midst of thee,
15. thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, devoting it to destruction, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.
16. And all the spoil of it shalt thou gather into the midst of the open place thereof, and shalt burn the city with fire, and all the spoil thereof, wholly to Jehovah thy God; and it shall be a heap for ever; it shall not be built again.
17. And thou shalt not let anything cleave to thy hand of the devoted thing; that Jehovah may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers;
18. when thou hearkenest to the voice of Jehovah thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, that thou mayest do what is right in the eyes of Jehovah thy God.

Deuteronomy 14:1-29
1. Ye are sons of Jehovah your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for a dead person.
2. For thou art a holy people unto Jehovah thy God, and thee hath Jehovah chosen for a people of possession unto himself, out of all the peoples that are upon the face of the earth.
3. Thou shalt not eat any abominable thing.
4. These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat;
5. the hart, and the gazelle, and the stag, and the wild goat, and the dishon and the oryx, and the wild sheep.
6. And every beast that hath cloven hoofs, and the feet quite split open into double hoofs, [and] which cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that ye shall eat.
7. Only these ye shall not eat of those that chew the cud, or of those with hoofs cloven and split open: the camel, and the hare, and the rock-badger; for they chew the cud, but have not cloven hoofs they shall be unclean unto you;
8. and the swine, for it hath cloven hoofs, yet cheweth not the cud it shall be unclean unto you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch.
9. These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales shall ye eat;
10. but whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye shall not eat: it shall be unclean unto you.
11. All clean birds shall ye eat.
12. But these are they of which ye shall not eat: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the sea-eagle,
13. and the falcon, and the kite, and the black kite after its kind;
14. and every raven after its kind;
15. and the female ostrich, and the male ostrich, and the sea-gull, and the hawk after its kind;
16. the owl, and the ibis and the swan,
17. and the pelican, and the carrion vulture, and the gannet,
18. and the stork, and the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat.
19. And every winged crawling thing shall be unclean unto you; they shall not be eaten.
20. All clean fowls shall ye eat.
21. Ye shall eat of no carcase; thou shalt give it unto the stranger that is within thy gates, that he may eat it, or sell it unto a foreigner; for thou art a holy people to Jehovah thy God. Thou shalt not boil a kid in its mother's milk.
22. Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, the produce of the field, year by year.
23. And thou shalt eat before Jehovah thy God, in the place which he will choose to cause his name to dwell there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy new wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear Jehovah thy God continually.
24. And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it, because the place is too far from thee, which Jehovah thy God will choose to set his name there, when Jehovah thy God blesseth thee;
25. then shalt thou give it for money, and bind the money together in thy hand, and go to the place which Jehovah thy God will choose,
26. and thou shalt give the money for whatever thy soul desireth, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatever thy soul asketh of thee; and thou shalt eat there before Jehovah thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thy house.
27. And thou shalt not forsake the Levite that is within thy gates; for he hath no portion nor inheritance with thee.
28. At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy gates;
29. and the Levite for he hath no portion nor inheritance with thee and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that Jehovah thy God may bless thee in all the work of thy hand which thou doest.

Psalms 37:23-29
23. The steps of a man are established by Jehovah, and he delighteth in his way:
24. though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down, for Jehovah upholdeth his hand.
25. I have been young, and now am old, and I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed seeking bread:
26. all the day he is gracious and lendeth, and his seed shall be a blessing.
27. Depart from evil, and do good, and dwell for evermore;
28. for Jehovah loveth judgment, and will not forsake his saints: They are preserved for ever; but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29. The righteous shall possess the land, and dwell therein for ever.

Proverbs 12:15-16
15. The way of a fool is right in his own eyes; but he that is wise hearkeneth unto counsel.
16. The vexation of the fool is presently known; but a prudent [man] covereth shame.

Luke 2:25-52
25. And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was just and pious, awaiting the consolation of Israel, and [the] Holy Spirit was upon him.
26. And it was divinely communicated to him by the Holy Spirit, that he should not see death before he should see [the] Lord's Christ.
27. And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and as the parents brought in the child Jesus that they might do for him according to the custom of the law,
28. *he* received him into his arms, and blessed God, and said,
29. Lord, now thou lettest thy bondman go, according to thy word, in peace;
30. for mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
31. which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples;
32. a light for revelation of [the] Gentiles and [the] glory of thy people Israel.
33. And his father and mother wondered at the things which were said concerning him.
34. And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary his mother, Lo, this [child] is set for the fall and rising up of many in Israel, and for a sign spoken against;
35. (and even a sword shall go through thine own soul;) so that [the] thoughts may be revealed from many hearts.
36. And there was a prophetess, Anna, daughter of Phanuel, of [the] tribe of Asher, who was far advanced in years, having lived with [her] husband seven years from her virginity,
37. and herself a widow up to eighty-four years; who did not depart from the temple, serving night and day with fastings and prayers;
38. and she coming up the same hour gave praise to the Lord, and spoke of him to all those who waited for redemption in Jerusalem.
39. And when they had completed all things according to the law of [the] Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own city Nazareth.
40. And the child grew and waxed strong [in spirit], filled with wisdom, and God's grace was upon him.
41. And his parents went yearly to Jerusalem at the feast of the passover.
42. And when he was twelve years old, and they went up [to Jerusalem] according to the custom of the feast
43. and had completed the days, as they returned, the boy Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem, and his parents knew not [of it];
44. but, supposing him to be in the company that journeyed together, they went a day's journey, and sought him among their relations and acquaintances:
45. and not having found him they returned to Jerusalem seeking him.
46. And it came to pass, after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers and hearing them and asking them questions.
47. And all who heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
48. And when they saw him they were amazed: and his mother said to him, Child, why hast thou dealt thus with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee distressed.
49. And he said to them, Why [is it] that ye have sought me? did ye not know that I ought to be [occupied] in my Father's business?
50. And they understood not the thing that he said to them.
51. And he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and he was in subjection to them. And his mother kept all these things in her heart.
52. And Jesus advanced in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and men.
