Deuteronomy 17:1-20
1. "You shall not sacrifice to the LORD your God an ox or a sheep which has a blemish or any defect, for that is a detestable thing to the LORD your God.
2. "If there is found in your midst, in any of your towns, which the LORD your God is giving you, a man or a woman who does what is evil in the sight of the LORD your God, by transgressing His covenant,
3. and has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, or the sun or the moon or any of the heavenly host, which I have not commanded,
4. and if it is told you and you have heard of it, then you shall inquire thoroughly. Behold, if it is true and the thing certain that this detestable thing has been done in Israel,
5. then you shall bring out that man or that woman who has done this evil deed to your gates, that is, the man or the woman, and you shall stone them to death.
6. "On the evidence of two witnesses or three witnesses, he who is to die shall be put to death; he shall not be put to death on the evidence of one witness.
7. "The hand of the witnesses shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people. So you shall purge the evil from your midst.
8. "If any case is too difficult for you to decide, between one kind of homicide or another, between one kind of lawsuit or another, and between one kind of assault or another, being cases of dispute in your courts, then you shall arise and go up to the place which the LORD your God chooses.
9. "So you shall come to the Levitical priest or the judge who is in office in those days, and you shall inquire of them and they will declare to you the verdict in the case.
10. "You shall do according to the terms of the verdict which they declare to you from that place which the LORD chooses; and you shall be careful to observe according to all that they teach you.
11. "According to the terms of the law which they teach you, and according to the verdict which they tell you, you shall do; you shall not turn aside from the word which they declare to you, to the right or the left.
12. "The man who acts presumptuously by not listening to the priest who stands there to serve the LORD your God, nor to the judge, that man shall die; thus you shall purge the evil from Israel.
13. "Then all the people will hear and be afraid, and will not act presumptuously again.
14. "When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, and you possess it and live in it, and you say, 'I will set a king over me like all the nations who are around me,'
15. you shall surely set a king over you whom the LORD your God chooses, one from among your countrymen you shall set as king over yourselves; you may not put a foreigner over yourselves who is not your countryman.
16. "Moreover, he shall not multiply horses for himself, nor shall he cause the people to return to Egypt to multiply horses, since the LORD has said to you, 'You shall never again return that way.'
17. "He shall not multiply wives for himself, or else his heart will turn away; nor shall he greatly increase silver and gold for himself.
18. "Now it shall come about when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself a copy of this law on a scroll in the presence of the Levitical priests.
19. "It shall be with him and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, by carefully observing all the words of this law and these statutes,
20. that his heart may not be lifted up above his countrymen and that he may not turn aside from the commandment, to the right or the left, so that he and his sons may continue long in his kingdom in the midst of Israel.

Deuteronomy 18:1-22
1. "The Levitical priests, the whole tribe of Levi, shall have no portion or inheritance with Israel; they shall eat the LORD'S offerings by fire and His portion.
2. "They shall have no inheritance among their countrymen; the LORD is their inheritance, as He promised them.
3. "Now this shall be the priests' due from the people, from those who offer a sacrifice, either an ox or a sheep, of which they shall give to the priest the shoulder and the two cheeks and the stomach.
4. "You shall give him the first fruits of your grain, your new wine, and your oil, and the first shearing of your sheep.
5. "For the LORD your God has chosen him and his sons from all your tribes, to stand and serve in the name of the LORD forever.
6. "Now if a Levite comes from any of your towns throughout Israel where he resides, and comes whenever he desires to the place which the LORD chooses,
7. then he shall serve in the name of the LORD his God, like all his fellow Levites who stand there before the LORD.
8. "They shall eat equal portions, except what they receive from the sale of their fathers' estates.
9. "When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations.
10. "There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer,
11. or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.
12. "For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you.
13. "You shall be blameless before the LORD your God.
14. "For those nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who practice witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the LORD your God has not allowed you to do so.
15. "The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen, you shall listen to him.
16. "This is according to all that you asked of the LORD your God in Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, 'Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, let me not see this great fire anymore, or I will die.'
17. "The LORD said to me, 'They have spoken well.
18. 'I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.
19. 'It shall come about that whoever will not listen to My words which he shall speak in My name, I Myself will require it of him.
20. 'But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.'
21. "You may say in your heart, 'How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?'
22. "When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.

Psalms 37:37-40
37. Mark the blameless man, and behold the upright; For the man of peace will have a posterity.
38. But transgressors will be altogether destroyed; The posterity of the wicked will be cut off.
39. But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in time of trouble.
40. The LORD helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, Because they take refuge in Him.

Proverbs 12:20-22
20. Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, But counselors of peace have joy.
21. No harm befalls the righteous, But the wicked are filled with trouble.
22. Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal faithfully are His delight.

Luke 4:1-30
1. Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led around by the Spirit in the wilderness
2. for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And He ate nothing during those days, and when they had ended, He became hungry.
3. And the devil said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread."
4. And Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE.'"
5. And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
6. And the devil said to Him, "I will give You all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.
7. "Therefore if You worship before me, it shall all be Yours."
8. Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'"
9. And he led Him to Jerusalem and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here;
10. for it is written, 'HE WILL COMMAND HIS ANGELS CONCERNING YOU TO GUARD YOU,'
11. and, 'ON their HANDS THEY WILL BEAR YOU UP, SO THAT YOU WILL NOT STRIKE YOUR FOOT AGAINST A STONE.'"
12. And Jesus answered and said to him, "It is said, 'YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.'"
13. When the devil had finished every temptation, he left Him until an opportune time.
14. And Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about Him spread through all the surrounding district.
15. And He began teaching in their synagogues and was praised by all.
16. And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read.
17. And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written,
18. "THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED,
19. TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD."
20. And He closed the book, gave it back to the attendant and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
21. And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."
22. And all were speaking well of Him, and wondering at the gracious words which were falling from His lips; and they were saying, "Is this not Joseph's son?"
23. And He said to them, "No doubt you will quote this proverb to Me, 'Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we heard was done at Capernaum, do here in your hometown as well.'"
24. And He said, "Truly I say to you, no prophet is welcome in his hometown.
25. "But I say to you in truth, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the sky was shut up for three years and six months, when a great famine came over all the land;
26. and yet Elijah was sent to none of them, but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow.
27. "And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian."
28. And all the people in the synagogue were filled with rage as they heard these things;
29. and they got up and drove Him out of the city, and led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city had been built, in order to throw Him down the cliff.
30. But passing through their midst, He went His way.
