Deuteronomy 23:1-25
1. He that is a eunuch, whether he have been crushed or cut, shall not come into the congregation of Jehovah.
2. A bastard shall not come into the congregation of Jehovah; even his tenth generation shall not come into the congregation of Jehovah.
3. An Ammonite or Moabite shall not come into the congregation of Jehovah; even their tenth generation shall not come into the congregation of Jehovah for ever;
4. because they met you not with bread and with water on the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt, and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor, of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee.
5. But Jehovah thy God would not listen to Balaam; and Jehovah thy God turned the curse into blessing unto thee, because Jehovah thy God loved thee.
6. Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever.
7. Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy brother. Thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou wast a sojourner in his land.
8. Children that are born to them shall come into the congregation of Jehovah in the third generation.
9. When thou goest forth into camp against thine enemies, then keep thee from every evil thing.
10. If there be with thee a man that is not clean from what hath happened in the night, then shall he go outside the camp; he shall not come inside the camp;
11. and it shall be, towards evening, he shall bathe in water: and at the going down of the sun he may come inside the camp.
12. Thou shalt have a place also outside the camp, and shalt go forth thither.
13. And thou shalt have a shovel amongst thy weapons, and it shall be, when thou sittest down abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which is come from thee.
14. For Jehovah thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; and thy camp shall be holy, that he see nothing unseemly with thee, and turn away from thee.
15. Thou shalt not hand over to his master a bondman that hath escaped from his master unto thee:
16. he shall dwell with thee, even in thy midst, in the place that he shall choose in one of thy gates, where it seemeth good to him; thou shalt not oppress him.
17. There shall be no prostitute amongst the daughters of Israel, nor any Sodomite amongst the sons of Israel.
18. Thou shalt not bring the hire of a harlot, or the price of a dog, into the house of Jehovah thy God for any vow; for even both these are an abomination to Jehovah thy God.
19. Thou shalt take no interest of thy brother, interest of money, interest of victuals, interest of anything that can be lent upon interest:
20. of a foreigner thou mayest take interest, but of thy brother thou shalt not take interest; that Jehovah thy God may bless thee in all the business of thy hand in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
21. When thou vowest a vow to Jehovah thy God, thou shalt not delay to perform it; for Jehovah thy God will certainly require it of thee, and it shall be sin in thee.
22. But if thou forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in thee.
23. What is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and do, as thou hast vowed to Jehovah thy God, the voluntary-offering that thou hast promised with thy mouth.
24. When thou comest into thy neighbour's vineyard, thou mayest eat grapes thy fill, according to thy desire, but thou shalt not put any in thy vessel.
25. When thou comest into the standing corn of thy neighbour, thou mayest pluck ears with thy hand; but thou shalt not wave the sickle against thy neighbour's standing corn.

Deuteronomy 24:1-22
1. When a man taketh a wife, and marrieth her, it shall be if she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some unseemly thing in her, that he shall write her a letter of divorce, and give it into her hand, and send her out of his house.
2. And she shall depart out of his house, and go away, and may become another man's wife.
3. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a letter of divorce, and give it into her hand, and send her out of his house; or if the latter husband die who took her as his wife;
4. her first husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for it is an abomination before Jehovah; and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which Jehovah thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
5. When a man hath newly taken a wife, he shall not go out with the army, neither shall any kind of business be imposed upon him; he shall be free for his house one year, and shall gladden his wife whom he hath taken.
6. No man shall take the hand-mill or the upper millstone in pledge; for it would be taking life in pledge.
7. If a man be found who hath stolen one of his brethren of the children of Israel, and who hath treated him as a slave and sold him, that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from thy midst.
8. Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that thou take great heed, and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall teach you: as I commanded them shall ye take heed to do.
9. Remember what Jehovah thy God did unto Miriam on the way, after that ye came forth out of Egypt.
10. When thou dost lend thy brother anything, thou shalt not go into his house to secure his pledge.
11. Thou shalt stand outside, and the man to whom thou hast made a loan shall bring out the pledge to thee without.
12. And if the man be needy, thou shalt not lie down with his pledge;
13. in any case thou shalt return him the pledge at the going down of the sun, that he may sleep in his own upper garment and bless thee; and it shall be righteousness unto thee before Jehovah thy God.
14. Thou shalt not oppress a hired servant [who is] poor and needy of thy brethren, or of thy sojourners who are in thy land within thy gates:
15. on his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and his soul yearneth after it; lest he cry against thee to Jehovah, and it be a sin in thee.
16. The fathers shall not be put to death for the sons, neither shall the sons be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
17. Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, [or] of the fatherless; and thou shalt not take in pledge a widow's garment.
18. And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and that Jehovah thy God redeemed thee from thence; therefore I command thee to do this thing.
19. When thou reapest thy harvest in thy field, and forgettest a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not return to fetch it; it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow; that Jehovah thy God may bless thee in all the work of thy hands.
20. When thou shakest thine olive-tree, thou shalt not go over the boughs again; it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.
21. When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean it afterwards; it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.
22. And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt; therefore I command thee to do this thing.

Psalms 39:1-6
1. {To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.} I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a muzzle, while the wicked is before me.
2. I was dumb with silence, I held my peace from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
3. My heart burned within me; the fire was kindled in my musing: I spoke with my tongue,
4. Make me to know, Jehovah, mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: I shall know how frail I am.
5. Behold, thou hast made my days [as] hand-breadths, and my lifetime is as nothing before thee; verily, every man, [even] the high placed, is altogether vanity. Selah.
6. Verily, man walketh in a vain show; verily they are disquieted in vain; he heapeth up [riches], and knoweth not who shall gather them.

Proverbs 13:1-3
1. A wise son [heareth] his father's instruction; but a scorner heareth not rebuke.
2. A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth; but the soul of the treacherous, violence.
3. He that guardeth his mouth keepeth his soul; destruction shall be to him that openeth wide his lips.

Luke 5:17-39
17. And it came to pass on one of the days, that *he* was teaching, and there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, who were come out of every village of Galilee and Judaea and [out of] Jerusalem; and [the] Lord's power was [there] to heal them.
18. And lo, men bringing upon a couch a man who was paralysed; and they sought to bring him in, and put [him] before him.
19. And not finding what way to bring him in, on account of the crowd, going up on the housetop they let him down through the tiles, with his little couch, into the midst before Jesus.
20. And seeing their faith, he said, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.
21. And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason [in their minds], saying, Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who is able to forgive sins but God alone?
22. But Jesus, knowing their reasonings, answering said to them, Why reason ye in your hearts?
23. which is easier, to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?
24. But that ye may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins, he said to the paralysed man, I say to thee, Arise, and take up thy little couch and go to thine house.
25. And immediately standing up before them, having taken up that whereon he was laid, he departed to his house, glorifying God.
26. And astonishment seized all, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to-day.
27. And after these things he went forth and saw a tax-gatherer, Levi by name, sitting at the receipt of taxes, and said to him, Follow me.
28. And having left all, rising up, he followed him.
29. And Levi made a great entertainment for him in his house, and there was a great crowd of tax-gatherers and others who were at table with them.
30. And their scribes and the Pharisees murmured at his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with tax-gatherers and sinners?
31. And Jesus answering said to them, They that are in sound health have not need of a physician, but those that are ill.
32. I am not come to call righteous [persons], but sinful [ones] to repentance.
33. And they said to him, Why do the disciples of John fast often and make supplications, in like manner those also of the Pharisees, but thine eat and drink?
34. And he said to them, Can ye make the sons of the bridechamber fast when the bridegroom is with them?
35. But days will come when also the bridegroom will have been taken away from them; then shall they fast in those days.
36. And he spoke also a parable to them: No one puts a piece of a new garment upon an old garment, otherwise he will both rend the new, and the piece which is from the new will not suit with the old.
37. And no one puts new wine into old skins, otherwise the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be poured out, and the skins will be destroyed;
38. but new wine is to be put into new skins, and both are preserved.
39. And no one having drunk old wine [straightway] wishes for new, for he says, The old is better.
