Joshua 15:1-63
1. The allotment for the tribe of the people of Judah according to their clans reached southward to the boundary of Edom, to the wilderness of Zin at the farthest south.
2. And their south boundary ran from the end of the Salt Sea, from the bay that faces southward.
3. It goes out southward of the ascent of Akrabbim, passes along to Zin, and goes up south of Kadesh-barnea, along by Hezron, up to Addar, turns about to Karka,
4. passes along to Azmon, goes out by the Brook of Egypt, and comes to its end at the sea. This shall be your south boundary.
5. And the east boundary is the Salt Sea, to the mouth of the Jordan. And the boundary on the north side runs from the bay of the sea at the mouth of the Jordan.
6. And the boundary goes up to Beth-hoglah and passes along north of Beth-arabah. And the boundary goes up to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben.
7. And the boundary goes up to Debir from the Valley of Achor, and so northward, turning toward Gilgal, which is opposite the ascent of Adummim, which is on the south side of the valley. And the boundary passes along to the waters of En-shemesh and ends at En-rogel.
8. Then the boundary goes up by the Valley of the Son of Hinnom at the southern shoulder of the Jebusite ( that is, Jerusalem). And the boundary goes up to the top of the mountain that lies over against the Valley of Hinnom, on the west, at the northern end of the Valley of Rephaim.
9. Then the boundary extends from the top of the mountain to the spring of the waters of Nephtoah, and from there to the cities of Mount Ephron. Then the boundary bends around to Baalah ( that is, Kiriath-jearim).
10. And the boundary circles west of Baalah to Mount Seir, passes along to the northern shoulder of Mount Jearim (that is, Chesalon), and goes down to Beth-shemesh and passes along by Timnah.
11. The boundary goes out to the shoulder of the hill north of Ekron, then the boundary bends around to Shikkeron and passes along to Mount Baalah and goes out to Jabneel. Then the boundary comes to an end at the sea.
12. And the west boundary was the Great Sea with its coastline. This is the boundary around the people of Judah according to their clans.
13. According to the commandment of the LORD to Joshua, he gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh a portion among the people of Judah, Kiriath-arba, that is, Hebron (Arba was the father of Anak).
14. And Caleb drove out from there the three sons of Anak, Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai, the descendants of Anak.
15. And he went up from there against the inhabitants of Debir. Now the name of Debir formerly was Kiriath-sepher.
16. And Caleb said, "Whoever strikes Kiriath-sepher and captures it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter as wife."
17. And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, captured it. And he gave him Achsah his daughter as wife.
18. When she came to him, she urged him to ask her father for a field. And she got off her donkey, and Caleb said to her, "What do you want?"
19. She said to him, "Give me a blessing. Since you have given me the land of the Negeb, give me also springs of water." And he gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.
20. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the people of Judah according to their clans.

Joshua 16:1-10
1. The allotment of the people of Joseph went from the Jordan by Jericho, east of the waters of Jericho, into the wilderness, going up from Jericho into the hill country to Bethel.
2. Then going from Bethel to Luz, it passes along to Ataroth, the territory of the Archites.
3. Then it goes down westward to the territory of the Japhletites, as far as the territory of Lower Beth-horon, then to Gezer, and it ends at the sea.
4. The people of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, received their inheritance.
5. The territory of the people of Ephraim by their clans was as follows: the boundary of their inheritance on the east was Ataroth-addar as far as Upper Beth-horon,
6. and the boundary goes from there to the sea. On the north is Michmethath. Then on the east the boundary turns around toward Taanath-shiloh and passes along beyond it on the east to Janoah,
7. then it goes down from Janoah to Ataroth and to Naarah, and touches Jericho, ending at the Jordan.
8. From Tappuah the boundary goes westward to the brook Kanah and ends at the sea. Such is the inheritance of the tribe of the people of Ephraim by their clans,
9. together with the towns that were set apart for the people of Ephraim within the inheritance of the Manassites, all those towns with their villages.
10. However, they did not drive out the Canaanites who lived in Gezer, so the Canaanites have lived in the midst of Ephraim to this day but have been made to do forced labor.

Psalms 45:1-5
1. TO THE CHOIRMASTER: ACCORDING TO LILIES. A MASKIL OF THE SONS OF KORAH; A LOVE SONG. My heart overflows with a pleasing theme; I address my verses to the king; my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe.
2. You are the most handsome of the sons of men; grace is poured upon your lips; therefore God has blessed you forever.
3. Gird your sword on your thigh, O mighty one, in your splendor and majesty!
4. In your majesty ride out victoriously for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; let your right hand teach you awesome deeds!
5. Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; the peoples fall under you.

Proverbs 14:4-5
4. Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean, but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox.
5. A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies.

Luke 11:29-54
29. When the crowds were increasing, he began to say, "This generation is an evil generation. It seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.
30. For as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.
31. The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.
32. The men of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
33. "No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light.
34. Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness.
35. Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness.
36. If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright, as when a lamp with its rays gives you light."
37. While Jesus was speaking, a Pharisee asked him to dine with him, so he went in and reclined at table.
38. The Pharisee was astonished to see that he did not first wash before dinner.
39. And the Lord said to him, "Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.
40. You fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside also?
41. But give as alms those things that are within, and behold, everything is clean for you.
42. "But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and every herb, and neglect justice and the love of God. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.
43. Woe to you Pharisees! For you love the best seat in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces.
44. Woe to you! For you are like unmarked graves, and people walk over them without knowing it."
45. One of the lawyers answered him, "Teacher, in saying these things you insult us also."
46. And he said, "Woe to you lawyers also! For you load people with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers.
47. Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed.
48. So you are witnesses and you consent to the deeds of your fathers, for they killed them, and you build their tombs.
49. Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, 'I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,'
50. so that the blood of all the prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be charged against this generation,
51. from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it will be required of this generation.
52. Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering."
53. As he went away from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to press him hard and to provoke him to speak about many things,
54. lying in wait for him, to catch him in something he might say.
