2 Kings 1:1-18
1. And Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab.
2. And Ahaziah fell down through the lattice in his upper chamber which was in Samaria, and was sick; and he sent messengers and said to them, Go, inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron, whether I shall recover from this disease.
3. And the angel of Jehovah said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say to them, Is it because there is not a God in Israel, that ye go to inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron?
4. Now therefore thus saith Jehovah: Thou shalt not come down from the bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt certainly die. And Elijah departed.
5. And the messengers returned to him; and he said to them, Why have ye returned?
6. And they said unto him, A man came up to meet us, and said to us, Go, return to the king that sent you and say to him, Thus saith Jehovah: Is it because there is not a God in Israel, that thou sendest to inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from the bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt certainly die.
7. And he said to them, What manner of man was he that came up to meet you, and told you these words?
8. And they said to him, He was a man in a hairy [garment], and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins. And he said, It is Elijah the Tishbite.
9. And he sent to him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him, and behold, he sat on the top of the mount. And he spoke to him: Man of God, the king says, Come down!
10. And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, And if I be a man of God, let fire come down from the heavens and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from the heavens, and consumed him and his fifty.
11. And again he sent to him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he spoke and said to him, Man of God, thus says the king: Come down quickly!
12. And Elijah answered and said to them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from the heavens and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from the heavens, and consumed him and his fifty.
13. And again he sent the captain of a third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him and said to him, Man of God, I pray thee, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be precious in thy sight.
14. Behold, there came down fire from the heavens, and consumed the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties; but now, let my life be precious in thy sight.
15. And the angel of Jehovah said to Elijah, Go down with him: be not afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him to the king.
16. And he said to him, Thus saith Jehovah: Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron, is it because there is no God in Israel to inquire of his word? therefore thou shalt not come down from the bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt certainly die.
17. And he died according to the word of Jehovah that Elijah had spoken. And Jehoram began to reign in his stead, in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah; for he had no son.
18. And the rest of the acts of Ahaziah, what he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

2 Kings 2:1-25
1. And it came to pass when Jehovah would take up Elijah into the heavens by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.
2. And Elijah said to Elisha, Abide here, I pray thee; for Jehovah has sent me to Bethel. And Elisha said, As Jehovah liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee! So they went down to Bethel.
3. And the sons of the prophets that were at Bethel came forth to Elisha, and said to him, Dost thou know that Jehovah will take away thy master from over thy head to-day? And he said, I also know it: be silent!
4. And Elijah said to him, Elisha, abide here, I pray thee; for Jehovah has sent me to Jericho. And he said, As Jehovah liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee! And they came to Jericho.
5. And the sons of the prophets that were at Jericho drew near to Elisha and said to him, Dost thou know that Jehovah will take away thy master from over thy head to-day? And he said, I also know it: be silent!
6. And Elijah said to him, Abide here, I pray thee; for Jehovah has sent me to the Jordan. And he said, As Jehovah liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee! And they two went on.
7. And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went and stood opposite afar off; and they two stood by the Jordan.
8. And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither; and they two went over on dry ground.
9. And it came to pass when they had gone over, that Elijah said to Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I am taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.
10. And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so to thee; but if not, it shall not be [so].
11. And it came to pass as they went on, and talked, that behold, a chariot of fire and horses of fire; and they parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into the heavens.
12. And Elisha saw [it], and he cried, My father, my father! the chariot of Israel and the horsemen thereof! And he saw him no more. Then he took hold of his own garments and rent them in two pieces.
13. And he took up the mantle of Elijah which fell from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan;
14. and he took the mantle of Elijah which had fallen from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is Jehovah, the God of Elijah? He also smote the waters, and they parted hither and thither, and Elisha went over.
15. And the sons of the prophets who were at Jericho on the opposite side saw him, and they said, The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him,
16. and said to him, Behold now, there are with thy servants fifty valiant men; let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master, lest perhaps the Spirit of Jehovah have taken him up, and cast him upon some mountain, or into some ravine. And he said, Ye shall not send.
17. And they pressed him till he was ashamed, and he said, Send. They sent therefore fifty men, and they sought three days, but did not find him.
18. And they came again to him (now he was staying at Jericho); and he said to them, Did I not say to you, Go not?
19. And the men of the city said to Elisha, Behold now, the situation of the city is good, as my lord sees; but the water is bad, and the land is barren.
20. And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt in it. And they brought it to him.
21. And he went forth to the source of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith Jehovah: I have healed these waters: there shall not be from thence any more death or barrenness.
22. And the waters were healed to this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spoke.
23. And he went up from thence to Bethel, and as he went up by the way, there came forth little boys out of the city, and mocked him, and said to him, Go up, bald head; go up, bald head!
24. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of Jehovah. And there came forth two she-bears out of the wood, and tore forty-two children of them.
25. And he went from thence to mount Carmel, and from thence he returned to Samaria.

Psalms 71:9-16
9. Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
10. For mine enemies speak against me, and they that watch for my soul consult together,
11. Saying, God hath forsaken him; pursue and seize him, for there is none to deliver.
12. O God, be not far from me; my God, hasten to my help.
13. Let them be ashamed, let them be consumed, that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
14. But as for me, I will hope continually, and will praise thee yet more and more.
15. My mouth shall declare thy righteousness, [and] thy salvation all the day: for I know not the numbers [thereof].
16. I will go in the might of the Lord Jehovah; I will recall thy righteousness, thine alone.

Proverbs 18:6-8
6. A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for stripes.
7. A fool's mouth is destruction to him, and his lips are a snare to his soul.
8. The words of a talebearer are as dainty morsels, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

John 16:1-33
1. These things I have spoken unto you that ye may not be offended.
2. They shall put you out of the synagogues; but the hour is coming that every one who kills you will think to render service to God;
3. and these things they will do because they have not known the Father nor me.
4. But I have spoken these things to you, that when their hour shall have come, ye may remember them, that I have said [them] unto you. But I did not say these things unto you from [the] beginning, because I was with you.
5. But now I go to him that has sent me, and none of you demands of me, Where goest thou?
6. But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.
7. But I say the truth to you, It is profitable for you that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I go I will send him to you.
8. And having come, he will bring demonstration to the world, of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9. of sin, because they do not believe on me;
10. of righteousness, because I go away to [my] Father, and ye behold me no longer;
11. of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
12. I have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear them now.
13. But when *he* is come, the Spirit of truth, he shall guide you into all the truth: for he shall not speak from himself; but whatsoever he shall hear he shall speak; and he will announce to you what is coming.
14. He shall glorify me, for he shall receive of mine and shall announce [it] to you.
15. All things that the Father has are mine; on account of this I have said that he receives of mine and shall announce [it] to you.
16. A little while and ye do not behold me; and again a little while and ye shall see me, [because I go away to the Father].
17. [Some] of his disciples therefore said to one another, What is this he says to us, A little while and ye do not behold me; and again a little while and ye shall see me, and, Because I go away to the Father?
18. They said therefore, What is this which he says [of] the little while? We do not know [of] what he speaks.
19. Jesus knew therefore that they desired to demand of him, and said to them, Do ye inquire of this among yourselves that I said, A little while and ye do not behold me; and again a little while and ye shall see me?
20. Verily, verily, I say to you, that ye shall weep and lament, ye, but the world shall rejoice; and ye will be grieved, but your grief shall be turned to joy.
21. A woman, when she gives birth to a child, has grief because her hour has come; but when the child is born, she no longer remembers the trouble, on account of the joy that a man has been born into the world.
22. And ye now therefore have grief; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one takes from you.
23. And in that day ye shall demand nothing of me: verily, verily, I say to you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give you.
24. Hitherto ye have asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
25. These things I have spoken to you in allegories; the hour is coming that I will no longer speak to you in allegories, but will declare to you openly concerning the Father.
26. In that day ye shall ask in my name; and I say not to you that I will demand of the Father for you,
27. for the Father himself has affection for you, because ye have had affection for me, and have believed that I came out from God.
28. I came out from the Father and have come into the world; again, I leave the world and go to the Father.
29. His disciples say to him, Lo, now thou speakest openly and utterest no allegory.
30. Now we know that thou knowest all things, and hast not need that any one should demand of thee. By this we believe that thou art come from God.
31. Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?
32. Behold, [the] hour is coming, and has come, that ye shall be scattered, each to his own, and shall leave me alone; and [yet] I am not alone, for the Father is with me.
33. These things have I spoken to you that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye have tribulation; but be of good courage: I have overcome the world.
