Deuteronomy 31:1-30
1. And Moses went and spoke these words to all Israel;
2. and he said unto them, I am a hundred and twenty years old this day, I can no more go out and come in; and Jehovah hath said unto me, Thou shalt not go over this Jordan.
3. Jehovah thy God, he will go over before thee, he will destroy these nations from before thee, that thou mayest take possession of them: Joshua, he shall go over before thee, as Jehovah hath said.
4. And Jehovah will do to them as he did to Sihon and to Og, the kings of the Amorites, and to their land; whom he destroyed.
5. And when Jehovah giveth them up before you, ye shall do to them according to all the commandment which I have commanded you.
6. Be strong and courageous, fear them not, neither be afraid of them; for Jehovah thy God, he it is that goeth with thee; he will not leave thee, nor forsake thee.
7. And Moses called to Joshua, and said to him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and courageous, for thou must go with this people into the land which Jehovah hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.
8. And Jehovah, he it is that goeth before thee: he will be with thee; he will not leave thee, nor forsake thee; fear not, neither be dismayed.
9. And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it to the priests, the sons of Levi, who bore the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, and to all the elders of Israel.
10. And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, at the set time of the year of release, at the feast of tabernacles,
11. when all Israel cometh to appear before Jehovah thy God in the place which he will choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their ears.
12. Gather the people together, the men, and the women, and the children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear Jehovah your God, and take heed to do all the words of this law;
13. and that their children who do not know it may hear it and learn, that they may fear Jehovah your God, as long as ye live in the land, whereunto ye pass over the Jordan to possess it.
14. And Jehovah said to Moses, Lo, the days are near for thee to die; call Joshua, and present yourselves at the tent of meeting, that I may give him a charge. And Moses and Joshua went and presented themselves at the tent of meeting.
15. And Jehovah appeared at the tent in the pillar of cloud; and the pillar of cloud stood over the entrance to the tent.
16. And Jehovah said to Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the strange gods of the land into which they enter, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.
17. And my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them, and they will say in that day, Have not these evils befallen me because my God is not in my midst?
18. And I will entirely hide my face in that day for all the evils that they have wrought, because they turned unto other gods.
19. And now, write ye this song, and teach it to the children of Israel; put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.
20. For I shall bring them into the land which I swore unto their fathers, which floweth with milk and honey; and they will eat and fill themselves, and wax fat, and will turn unto other gods, and serve them, and despise me, and break my covenant.
21. And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles have befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed; for I know their imagination which they are forming already this day, before I bring them into the land which I have sworn [unto them].
22. And Moses wrote this song the same day, and taught it to the children of Israel.
23. And [Jehovah] commanded Joshua the son of Nun, and said, Be strong and courageous; for thou shalt bring the children of Israel into the land which I have sworn unto them; and I will be with thee.
24. And it came to pass, when Moses had ended writing the words of this law in a book, until their conclusion,
25. that Moses commanded the Levites, who bore the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, saying,
26. Take this book of the law, and put it at the side of the ark of the covenant of Jehovah your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee;
27. for I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck. Lo, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against Jehovah; and how much more after my death!
28. Gather to me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and take heaven and earth to witness against them.
29. For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and will turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and mischief will befall you at the end of days; because ye do evil in the sight of Jehovah, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.
30. And Moses spoke in the ears of the whole congregation of Israel the words of this song, until their conclusion.

Deuteronomy 32:1-52
1. Give ear, ye heavens, and I will speak; And hear, O earth, the words of my mouth!
2. My doctrine shall drop as rain, My speech flow down as dew, As small rain upon the tender herb, And as showers on the grass.
3. For the name of Jehovah will I proclaim: Ascribe greatness unto our God!
4. [He is] the Rock, his work is perfect, For all his ways are righteousness; A God of faithfulness without deceit, Just and right is he.
5. They have dealt corruptly with him; Not his children's is their spot: A crooked and perverted generation!
6. Do ye thus requite Jehovah, Foolish and unwise people? Is not he thy father that hath bought thee? Hath he not made thee and established thee?
7. Remember the days of old, Consider the years of generation to generation; Ask thy father, and he will shew thee; Thine elders, and they will tell thee.
8. When the Most High assigned to the nations their inheritance, When he separated the sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the peoples According to the number of the children of Israel.
9. For Jehovah's portion is his people; Jacob the lot of his inheritance.
10. He found him in a desert land, And in the waste, howling wilderness; He compassed him about, he watched over him, He preserved him as the apple of his eye.
11. As the eagle stirreth up its nest, Hovereth over its young, Spreadeth out its wings, Taketh them, beareth them on its feathers,
12. So Jehovah alone did lead him, And no strange God [was] with him.
13. He made him ride on the high places of the earth, And he ate the produce of the field; And he made him suck honey out of the crag, And oil out of the flinty rock;
14. Cream of kine, and milk of sheep, With the fat of lambs, And rams of the breed of Bashan, and he-goats, With the fat of kidneys of wheat; And thou didst drink pure wine, the blood of the grape.
15. Then Jeshurun grew fat, and kicked Thou art waxen fat, Thou art grown thick, And thou art covered with fatness; He gave up God who made him, And lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
16. They moved him to jealousy with strange gods, With abominations did they provoke him to anger.
17. They sacrificed unto demons who are not God; To gods whom they knew not, To new ones, who came newly up, Whom your fathers revered not.
18. Of the Rock that begot thee wast thou unmindful, And thou hast forgotten God who brought thee forth.
19. And Jehovah saw it, and despised them, Because of the provoking of his sons and of his daughters.
20. And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be; For they are a perverse generation, Children in whom is no faithfulness.
21. They have moved me to jealousy with that which is no God; They have exasperated me with their vanities; And I will move them to jealousy with that which is not a people; With a foolish nation will I provoke them to anger.
22. For a fire is kindled in mine anger, And it shall burn into the lowest Sheol, And shall consume the earth and its produce, And set fire to the foundations of the mountains.
23. I will heap mischiefs upon them; Mine arrows will I spend against them.
24. They shall be consumed with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, And with poisonous pestilence; And the teeth of beasts will I send against them, With the poison of what crawleth in the dust.
25. From without shall the sword bereave them, and in the chambers, terror Both the young man and the virgin, The suckling with the man of gray hairs.
26. I would say, I will scatter, I will make the remembrance of them to cease from among men,
27. If I did not fear provocation from the enemy, Lest their adversaries should misunderstand it, Lest they should say, Our hand is high, and Jehovah has not done all this.
28. For they are a nation void of counsel, And understanding is not in them.
29. Oh that they had been wise! they would have understood this, They would have considered their latter end!
30. How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Were it not that their Rock had sold them, And Jehovah had delivered them up?
31. For their rock is not as our Rock: Let our enemies themselves be judges.
32. For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, And of the fields of Gomorrah: Their grapes are grapes of poison, Bitter are their clusters;
33. Their wine is the poison of dragons, And the cruel venom of vipers.
34. Is not this hidden with me, Sealed up among my treasures?
35. Vengeance is mine, and recompense, For the time when their foot shall slip. For the day of their calamity is at hand, And the things that shall come upon them make haste.
36. For Jehovah will judge his people, And shall repent in favour of his servants; When he seeth that power is gone, And there is none shut up or left.
37. And he shall say, Where are their gods, Their rock in whom they trusted,
38. Who ate the fat of their sacrifices, [And] drank the wine of their drink-offering? Let them rise up and help you, That there may be a protection over you.
39. See now that I, I am HE, And there is no god with me; I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal, And there is none that delivereth out of my hand,
40. For I lift up my hand to the heavens, and say, I live for ever!
41. If I have sharpened my gleaming sword, And my hand take hold of judgment, I will render vengeance to mine adversaries, And will recompense them that hate me.
42. Mine arrows will I make drunk with blood, And my sword shall devour flesh; [I will make them drunk] with the blood of the slain and of the captives, With the head of the princes of the enemy.
43. Shout for joy, ye nations, with his people, For he avengeth the blood of his servants, And rendereth vengeance to his enemies, And maketh atonement for his land, for his people.
44. And Moses came and spoke all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he and Hoshea the son of Nun.
45. And when Moses had ended speaking all these words to all Israel,
46. he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words that I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to take heed to do, all the words of this law.
47. For it is no vain word for you, but it is your life, and through this word ye shall prolong your days on the land whereunto ye pass over the Jordan to possess it.
48. And Jehovah spoke to Moses that same day, saying,
49. Go up into this mountain Abarim, mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, which is opposite Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession,
50. and die on the mountain whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy peoples, as Aaron thy brother died on mount Hor, and was gathered unto his peoples;
51. because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye hallowed me not in the midst of the children of Israel.
52. For thou shalt see the land before [thee]; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.

Psalms 40:6-12
6. Sacrifice and oblation thou didst not desire: ears hast thou prepared me. Burnt-offering and sin-offering hast thou not demanded;
7. Then said I, Behold, I come, in the volume of the book it is written of me
8. To do thy good pleasure, my God, is my delight, and thy law is within my heart.
9. I have published righteousness in the great congregation: behold, I have not withheld my lips, Jehovah, *thou* knowest.
10. I have not hidden thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy loving-kindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
11. Withhold not thou, Jehovah, thy tender mercies from me; let thy loving-kindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
12. For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I cannot see; they are more than the hairs of my head: and my heart hath failed me.

Proverbs 13:11-12
11. Wealth [gotten] by vanity diminisheth; but he that gathereth by manual-labour shall increase [it].
12. Hope deferred maketh the heart sick; but the desire [that] cometh to pass is a tree of life.

Luke 7:31-50
31. To whom therefore shall I liken the men of this generation, and to whom are they like?
32. They are like children sitting in the market-place, and calling one to another and saying, We have piped to you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.
33. For John the baptist has come neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and ye say, He has a demon.
34. The Son of man has come eating and drinking, and ye say, Behold an eater and wine-drinker, a friend of tax-gatherers and sinners;
35. and wisdom has been justified of all her children.
36. But one of the Pharisees begged him that he would eat with him. And entering into the house of the Pharisee he took his place at table;
37. and behold, a woman in the city, who was a sinner, and knew that he was sitting at meat in the house of the Pharisee, having taken an alabaster box of myrrh,
38. and standing at his feet behind [him] weeping, began to wash his feet with tears; and she wiped them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed [them] with the myrrh.
39. And the Pharisee who had invited him, seeing it, spoke with himself saying, This [person] if he were a prophet would have known who and what the woman is who touches him, for she is a sinner.
40. And Jesus answering said to him, Simon, I have somewhat to say to thee. And he says, Teacher, say [it].
41. There were two debtors of a certain creditor: one owed five hundred denarii and the other fifty;
42. but as they had nothing to pay, he forgave both of them [their debt]: [say,] which of them therefore will love him most?
43. And Simon answering said, I suppose he to whom he forgave the most. And he said to him, Thou hast rightly judged.
44. And turning to the woman he said to Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thy house; thou gavest me not water on my feet, but *she* has washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with her hair.
45. Thou gavest me not a kiss, but *she* from the time I came in has not ceased kissing my feet.
46. My head with oil thou didst not anoint, but *she* has anointed my feet with myrrh.
47. For which cause I say to thee, Her many sins are forgiven; for she loved much; but he to whom little is forgiven loves little.
48. And he said to her, Thy sins are forgiven.
49. And they that were with [them] at table began to say within themselves, Who is this who forgives also sins?
50. And he said to the woman, Thy faith has saved thee; go in peace.
