Joshua 17:1-18
1. And the lot came to the tribe of Manasseh (for he was the firstborn of Joseph), to Machir, the firstborn of Manasseh, the father of Gilead, for he was a man of war, and he had Gilead and Bashan.
2. There was also [a portion] for the rest of the children of Manasseh according to their families: for the children of Abiezer, and for the children of Helek, and for the children of Asriel, and for the children of Shechem, and for the children of Hepher, and for the children of Shemida: these are the children of Manasseh, the son of Joseph, the males, according to their families.
3. And Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons, but daughters; and these are the names of his daughters: Mahlah, and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
4. And they came near before Eleazar the priest, and before Joshua the son of Nun, and before the princes, saying, Jehovah commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brethren. And he gave them according to the commandment of Jehovah an inheritance among the brethren of their father.
5. And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, besides the land of Gilead and Bashan, which are beyond the Jordan.
6. For the daughters of Manasseh received an inheritance among his sons; and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of Gilead.
7. And the territory of Manasseh was from Asher to Micmethath, which is before Shechem, and the border went on the right hand toward the inhabitants of En-Tappuah.
8. Manasseh had the land of Tappuah; but Tappuah on the border of Manasseh belonged to the children of Ephraim.
9. And the border descended to the torrent Kanah, south of the torrent. These cities were Ephraim's among the cities of Manasseh. And the territory of Manasseh was on the north side of the torrent, and ended at the sea.
10. Southward it was Ephraim's, and northward it was Manasseh's, and the sea was his border. And they touched upon Asher on the north, and upon Issachar on the east.
11. And Manasseh had in Issachar and in Asher, Beth-shean and its dependent villages, and Ibleam and its dependent villages, and the inhabitants of Dor and its dependent villages, and the inhabitants of En-Dor and its dependent villages, and the inhabitants of Taanach and its dependent villages, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and its dependent villages, the three hilly regions.
12. But the children of Manasseh could not dispossess [the inhabitants of] those cities; and the Canaanites would dwell in that land.
13. And it came to pass when the children of Israel were become strong, that they made the Canaanites tributary; but they did not utterly dispossess them.
14. And the children of Joseph spoke to Joshua, saying, Why hast thou given me as inheritance one lot and one portion, seeing I am a great people, forasmuch as Jehovah has blessed me hitherto?
15. And Joshua said unto them, If thou art a great people, then get thee up to the wood, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if the hill-country of Ephraim is too narrow for thee.
16. And the children of Joseph said, The hill-country will not be enough for us; and all the Canaanites that dwell in the land of the valley have chariots of iron, those that are of Beth-shean and its dependent villages, and those that are in the valley of Jizreel.
17. And Joshua spoke to the house of Joseph, to Ephraim and to Manasseh, saying, Thou art a great people, and hast great power: thou shalt not have one lot only,
18. but the hill-country shall be thine, as it is a wood, thou shalt cut it down, and its outgoings shall be thine; for thou shalt dispossess the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots; for they are powerful.

Joshua 18:1-28
1. And the whole assembly of the children of Israel gathered together at Shiloh, and set up the tent of meeting there; and the land was subdued before them.
2. And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes whose inheritance had not been distributed to them.
3. And Joshua said to the children of Israel, How long will ye shew yourselves slack to go to take possession of the land which Jehovah the God of your fathers hath given you?
4. Provide you three men for a tribe; that I may send them, and they shall rise and go through the land, and describe it according to the proportion of their inheritance, and they shall come to me.
5. And they shall divide it into seven portions. Judah shall remain in their border on the south, and the house of Joseph shall remain in their border on the north;
6. and *ye* shall describe the land into seven portions, and bring [the description] hither to me, and I will cast lots for you here before Jehovah our God.
7. But the Levites have no portion among you, for the priesthood of Jehovah is their inheritance. And Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance beyond the Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of Jehovah gave them.
8. And the men arose and went away. And Joshua charged them that went to describe the land, saying, Go and walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to me, and I will cast lots for you here before Jehovah in Shiloh.
9. And the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities into seven portions, in a book, and they came to Joshua, to the camp at Shiloh.
10. And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before Jehovah. And there Joshua divided the land to the children of Israel according to their divisions.
11. And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families. And the territory of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.
12. And their border on the north side was from the Jordan; and the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north, and went up to the mountain westward; and ended at the wilderness of Beth-Aven;
13. and the border passed on from thence toward Luz, to the south side of Luz, which is Bethel: and the border went down to Ataroth-Addar, near the hill that is on the south of the lower Beth-horon.
14. And the border reached along and turned on the west side, southward from the hill that is before Beth-horon southward; and ended at Kirjath-Baal, which is Kirjath-jearim, a city of the children of Judah: this is the west side.
15. And the south side was from the extreme end of Kirjath-jearim, and the border went out on the west, and went out to the spring of the waters of Nephtoah.
16. And the border went down to the end of the mountain that is before the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is in the valley of Rephaim on the north, and went down the valley of Hinnom, to the side of the Jebusite on the south, and went down to En-rogel;
17. and it reached along on the north, and went forth to En-shemesh, and went forth towards Geliloth, which is opposite to the ascent of Adummim, and went down to the stone of Bohan, the son of Reuben,
18. and passed along towards the side opposite to Arabah northwards, and went down to Arabah;
19. and the border passed on to the side of Beth-hoglah on the north, and the border ended at the tongue of the salt sea northward, at the south end of the Jordan: this is the southern border.
20. And the Jordan borders it on the east side. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, according to its borders round about, according to their families.
21. And the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin according to their families were: Jericho, and Beth-hoglah, and Emek-Keziz,
22. and Beth-Arabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel,
23. and Avvim, and Parah, and Ophrah,
24. and Chephar-haammonai, and Ophni, and Geba: twelve cities and their hamlets;
25. Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,
26. and Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,
27. and Rekem, and Jirpeel, and Tharalah,
28. and Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, that is, Jerusalem, Gibeah, Kirjath: fourteen cities and their hamlets. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.

Psalms 45:6-17
6. Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; a sceptre of uprightness is the sceptre of thy kingdom:
7. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated wickedness; therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy companions.
8. Myrrh and aloes, cassia, are all thy garments; out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made thee glad.
9. Kings' daughters are among thine honourable women; upon thy right hand doth stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
10. Hearken, daughter, and see, and incline thine ear; and forget thine own people and thy father's house:
11. And the king will desire thy beauty; for he is thy Lord, and worship thou him.
12. And the daughter of Tyre with a gift, the rich ones among the people, shall court thy favour.
13. All glorious is the king's daughter within; her clothing is of wrought gold:
14. She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of embroidery; the virgins behind her, her companions, shall be brought in unto thee:
15. With joy and gladness shall they be brought; they shall enter into the king's palace.
16. Instead of thy fathers shall be thy sons; princes shalt thou make them in all the earth.
17. I will make thy name to be remembered throughout all generations; therefore shall the peoples praise thee for ever and ever.

Proverbs 14:6-6
6. A scorner seeketh wisdom, and there is none [for him]; but knowledge is easy unto the intelligent.

Luke 12:1-31
1. In those [times], the myriads of the crowd being gathered together, so that they trod one on another, he began to say to his disciples first, Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy;
2. but there is nothing covered up which shall not be revealed, nor secret that shall not be known;
3. therefore whatever ye have said in the darkness shall be heard in the light, and what ye have spoken in the ear in chambers shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
4. But I say to you, my friends, Fear not those who kill the body and after this have no more that they can do.
5. But I will shew you whom ye shall fear: Fear him who after he has killed has authority to cast into hell; yea, I say to you, Fear *him*.
6. Are not five sparrows sold for two assaria? and one of them is not forgotten before God.
7. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore, ye are better than many sparrows.
8. But I say to you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, the Son of man will confess him also before the angels of God;
9. but he that shall have denied me before men shall be denied before the angels of God;
10. and whoever shall say a word against the Son of man it shall be forgiven him; but to him that speaks injuriously against the Holy Spirit it shall not be forgiven.
11. But when they bring you before the synagogues and rulers and the authorities, be not careful how or what ye shall answer, or what ye shall say;
12. for the Holy Spirit shall teach you in the hour itself what should be said.
13. And a person said to him out of the crowd, Teacher, speak to my brother to divide the inheritance with me.
14. But he said to him, Man, who established me [as] a judge or a divider over you?
15. And he said to them, Take heed and keep yourselves from all covetousness, for [it is] not because a man is in abundance [that] his life is in his possessions.
16. And he spoke a parable to them, saying, The land of a certain rich man brought forth abundantly.
17. And he reasoned within himself saying, What shall I do? for I have not [a place] where I shall lay up my fruits.
18. And he said, This will I do: I will take away my granaries and build greater, and there I will lay up all my produce and my good things;
19. and I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much good things laid by for many years; repose thyself, eat, drink, be merry.
20. But God said to him, Fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee; and whose shall be what thou hast prepared?
21. Thus is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
22. And he said to his disciples, For this cause I say unto you, Be not careful for life, what ye shall eat, nor for the body, what ye shall put on.
23. The life is more than food, and the body than raiment.
24. Consider the ravens, that they sow not nor reap; which have neither storehouse nor granary; and God feeds them. How much better are *ye* than the birds?
25. But which of you by being careful can add to his stature one cubit?
26. If therefore ye cannot [do] even what is least, why are ye careful about the rest?
27. Consider the lilies how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I say unto you, Not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed as one of these.
28. But if God thus clothe the grass, which to-day is in the field and to-morrow is cast into [the] oven, how much rather you, O ye of little faith?
29. And *ye*, seek not what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink, and be not in anxiety;
30. for all these things do the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that ye have need of these things;
31. but seek his kingdom, and [all] these things shall be added to you.
