1 Chronicles 17:1-27
1. And it came to pass as David dwelt in his house, that David said to Nathan the prophet, Behold, I dwell in a house of cedars, and the ark of the covenant of Jehovah under curtains.
2. And Nathan said to David, Do all that is in thy heart; for God is with thee.
3. And it came to pass that night that the word of God came to Nathan saying,
4. Go and say to David my servant, Thus saith Jehovah: Thou shalt not build me a house to dwell in;
5. for I have not dwelt in a house since the day that I brought up Israel to this day; but I have been from tent to tent, and from [one] tabernacle [to another].
6. In all my going about with all Israel, did I speak a word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people, saying, Why build ye me not a house of cedars?
7. And now, thus shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith Jehovah of hosts: I took thee from the pasture-grounds, from following the sheep, to be prince over my people Israel;
8. and I have been with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies from before thee, and have made thee a name, like unto the name of the great men that are on the earth.
9. And I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and be disturbed no more; neither shall the sons of wickedness waste them any more, as formerly,
10. and since the days that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel. And I will subdue all thine enemies; and I tell thee that Jehovah will build thee a house.
11. And it shall come to pass, when thy days are fulfilled that thou must go [to be] with thy fathers, that I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall be of thy sons; and I will establish his kingdom.
12. It is he who shall build me a house, and I will establish his throne for ever.
13. I will be his father, and he shall be my son; and I will not take away my mercy from him, as I took it from him that was before thee;
14. and I will settle him in my house and in my kingdom for ever; and his throne shall be established for ever.
15. According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak to David.
16. And king David went in and sat before Jehovah, and said, Who am I, Jehovah Elohim, and what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?
17. And this hath been a small thing in thy sight, O God; and thou hast spoken of thy servant's house for a great while to come, and hast regarded me according to the rank of a man of high degree, Jehovah Elohim.
18. What can David [say] more to thee for the glory of thy servant? thou indeed knowest thy servant.
19. Jehovah, for thy servant's sake, and according to thine own heart, hast thou done all this greatness, to make known all these great things.
20. Jehovah, there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
21. And who is like thy people Israel, the one nation in the earth that God went to redeem to be a people to himself, to make thee a name of greatness and terribleness, by driving out nations from before thy people, which thou hast redeemed out of Egypt?
22. And thy people Israel hast thou made thine own people for ever; and thou, Jehovah, art become their God.
23. And now, Jehovah, let the word that thou hast spoken concerning thy servant and concerning his house be established for ever, and do as thou hast said.
24. Let it even be established, and let thy name be magnified for ever, saying, Jehovah of hosts, the God of Israel, is God to Israel; and let the house of David thy servant be established before thee.
25. For thou, my God, hast revealed to thy servant that thou wilt build him a house; therefore hath thy servant found [in his heart] to pray before thee.
26. And now, Jehovah, thou art that God, and hast promised this goodness unto thy servant;
27. and now, let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may be before thee for ever; for thou, Jehovah, hast blessed [it], and it shall be blessed for ever.

1 Chronicles 18:1-17
1. And after this it came to pass that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them, and took Gath and its towns out of the hand of the Philistines.
2. And he smote the Moabites; and the Moabites became David's servants, [and] brought gifts.
3. And David smote Hadarezer king of Zobah, at Hamath, as he went to establish his dominion by the river Euphrates.
4. And David took from him a thousand chariots, and seven thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen; and David houghed all the chariot [horses], but reserved of them [for] a hundred chariots.
5. And the Syrians of Damascus came to help Hadarezer king of Zobah, and David smote of the Syrians twenty-two thousand men.
6. And David put [garrisons] in Syria of Damascus; and the Syrians became servants to David, [and] brought gifts. And Jehovah preserved David whithersoever he went.
7. And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadarezer, and brought them to Jerusalem.
8. And from Tibhath, and from Chun, cities of Hadarezer, David took very much brass, of which Solomon made the brazen sea, and the pillars, and the vessels of brass.
9. And Tou king of Hamath heard that David had smitten all the forces of Hadarezer king of Zobah;
10. and he sent Hadoram his son to king David to inquire of his welfare, and to congratulate him, because he had fought against Hadarezer and smitten him; for Hadarezer was continually at war with Tou; [he sent] also all manner of vessels of gold and silver and bronze.
11. Them also king David dedicated to Jehovah, with the silver and the gold that he had brought from all the nations: from the Edomites, and from the Moabites, and from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines, and from the Amalekites.
12. And Abishai the son of Zeruiah smote of the Edomites in the valley of salt eighteen thousand.
13. And he put garrisons in Edom; and all they of Edom became servants to David. And Jehovah preserved David whithersoever he went.
14. And David reigned over all Israel, and executed judgment and justice to all his people.
15. And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was chronicler;
16. and Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Abimelech the son of Abiathar, were the priests; and Shavsha was scribe;
17. and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and the sons of David were the first at the king's hand.

Psalms 78:17-25
17. Yet they still went on sinning against him, provoking the Most High in the desert;
18. And they tempted God in their heart, by asking meat for their lust;
19. And they spoke against God: they said, Is God able to prepare a table in the wilderness?
20. Behold, he smote the rock, and waters gushed out, and streams overflowed; is he able to give bread also, or provide flesh for his people?
21. Therefore Jehovah heard, and was wroth; and fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also went up against Israel:
22. Because they believed not in God, and confided not in his salvation;
23. Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and had opened the doors of the heavens,
24. And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them the corn of the heavens.
25. Man did eat the bread of the mighty; he sent them provision to the full.

Proverbs 19:25-26
25. Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware; reprove the intelligent, and he will understand knowledge.
26. He that ruineth [his] father and chaseth away [his] mother is a son that causeth shame and bringeth reproach.

Acts 8:1-25
1. And Saul was consenting to his being killed. And on that day there arose a great persecution against the assembly which was in Jerusalem, and all were scattered into the countries of Judaea and Samaria except the apostles.
2. And pious men buried Stephen and made great lamentation over him.
3. But Saul ravaged the assembly, entering into the houses one after another, and dragging off both men and women delivered them up to prison.
4. Those then that had been scattered went through [the countries] announcing the glad tidings of the word.
5. And Philip, going down to a city of Samaria, preached the Christ to them;
6. and the crowds with one accord gave heed to the things spoken by Philip, when they heard [him] and saw the signs which he wrought.
7. For from many who had unclean spirits they went out, crying with a loud voice; and many that were paralysed and lame were healed.
8. And there was great joy in that city.
9. But a certain man, by name Simon, had been before in the city, using magic arts, and astonishing the nation of Samaria, saying that himself was some great one.
10. To whom they had all given heed, from small to great, saying, This is the power of God which is called great.
11. And they gave heed to him, because that for a long time he had astonished them by his magic arts.
12. But when they believed Philip announcing the glad tidings concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptised, both men and women.
13. And Simon also himself believed; and, having been baptised, continued constantly with Philip; and, beholding the signs and great works of power which took place, was astonished.
14. And the apostles who were in Jerusalem, having heard that Samaria had received the word of God, sent to them Peter and John;
15. who, having come down, prayed for them that they might receive [the] Holy Spirit;
16. for he was not yet fallen upon any of them, only they were baptised to the name of the Lord Jesus.
17. Then they laid their hands upon them, and they received [the] Holy Spirit.
18. But Simon, having seen that by the laying on of the hands of the apostles the [Holy] Spirit was given, offered them money,
19. saying, Give to me also this power, in order that on whomsoever I may lay hands he may receive [the] Holy Spirit.
20. And Peter said to him, Thy money go with thee to destruction, because thou hast thought that the gift of God can be obtained by money.
21. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter, for thy heart is not upright before God.
22. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and supplicate the Lord, if indeed the thought of thy heart may be forgiven thee;
23. for I see thee to be in the gall of bitterness, and bond of unrighteousness.
24. And Simon answering said, Supplicate *ye* for me to the Lord, so that nothing may come upon me of the things of which ye have spoken.
25. They therefore, having testified and spoken the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and announced the glad tidings to many villages of the Samaritans.
