Numbers 15:1-41
1. Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
2. "Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, 'When you enter the land where you are to live, which I am giving you,
3. then make an offering by fire to the LORD, a burnt offering or a sacrifice to fulfill a special vow, or as a freewill offering or in your appointed times, to make a soothing aroma to the LORD, from the herd or from the flock.
4. 'The one who presents his offering shall present to the LORD a grain offering of one-tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one-fourth of a hin of oil,
5. and you shall prepare wine for the drink offering, one-fourth of a hin, with the burnt offering or for the sacrifice, for each lamb.
6. 'Or for a ram you shall prepare as a grain offering two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one-third of a hin of oil;
7. and for the drink offering you shall offer one-third of a hin of wine as a soothing aroma to the LORD.
8. 'When you prepare a bull as a burnt offering or a sacrifice, to fulfill a special vow, or for peace offerings to the LORD,
9. then you shall offer with the bull a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one-half a hin of oil;
10. and you shall offer as the drink offering one-half a hin of wine as an offering by fire, as a soothing aroma to the LORD.
11. 'Thus it shall be done for each ox, or for each ram, or for each of the male lambs, or of the goats.
12. 'According to the number that you prepare, so you shall do for everyone according to their number.
13. 'All who are native shall do these things in this manner, in presenting an offering by fire, as a soothing aroma to the LORD.
14. 'If an alien sojourns with you, or one who may be among you throughout your generations, and he wishes to make an offering by fire, as a soothing aroma to the LORD, just as you do so he shall do.
15. 'As for the assembly, there shall be one statute for you and for the alien who sojourns with you, a perpetual statute throughout your generations; as you are, so shall the alien be before the LORD.
16. 'There is to be one law and one ordinance for you and for the alien who sojourns with you.'"
17. Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
18. "Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, 'When you enter the land where I bring you,
19. then it shall be, that when you eat of the food of the land, you shall lift up an offering to the LORD.
20. 'Of the first of your dough you shall lift up a cake as an offering; as the offering of the threshing floor, so you shall lift it up.
21. 'From the first of your dough you shall give to the LORD an offering throughout your generations.
22. 'But when you unwittingly fail and do not observe all these commandments, which the LORD has spoken to Moses,
23. even all that the LORD has commanded you through Moses, from the day when the LORD gave commandment and onward throughout your generations,
24. then it shall be, if it is done unintentionally, without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one bull for a burnt offering, as a soothing aroma to the LORD, with its grain offering and its drink offering, according to the ordinance, and one male goat for a sin offering.
25. 'Then the priest shall make atonement for all the congregation of the sons of Israel, and they will be forgiven; for it was an error, and they have brought their offering, an offering by fire to the LORD, and their sin offering before the LORD, for their error.
26. 'So all the congregation of the sons of Israel will be forgiven, with the alien who sojourns among them, for it happened to all the people through error.
27. 'Also if one person sins unintentionally, then he shall offer a one year old female goat for a sin offering.
28. 'The priest shall make atonement before the LORD for the person who goes astray when he sins unintentionally, making atonement for him that he may be forgiven.
29. 'You shall have one law for him who does anything unintentionally, for him who is native among the sons of Israel and for the alien who sojourns among them.
30. 'But the person who does anything defiantly, whether he is native or an alien, that one is blaspheming the LORD; and that person shall be cut off from among his people.
31. 'Because he has despised the word of the LORD and has broken His commandment, that person shall be completely cut off; his guilt will be on him.'"
32. Now while the sons of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man gathering wood on the sabbath day.
33. Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and to all the congregation;
34. and they put him in custody because it had not been declared what should be done to him.
35. Then the LORD said to Moses, "The man shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall stone him with stones outside the camp."
36. So all the congregation brought him outside the camp and stoned him to death with stones, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.
37. The LORD also spoke to Moses, saying,
38. "Speak to the sons of Israel, and tell them that they shall make for themselves tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and that they shall put on the tassel of each corner a cord of blue.
39. "It shall be a tassel for you to look at and remember all the commandments of the LORD, so as to do them and not follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you played the harlot,
40. so that you may remember to do all My commandments and be holy to your God.
41. "I am the LORD your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt to be your God; I am the LORD your God."

Numbers 16:1-35
1. Now Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took action,
2. and they rose up before Moses, together with some of the sons of Israel, two hundred and fifty leaders of the congregation, chosen in the assembly, men of renown.
3. They assembled together against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, "You have gone far enough, for all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is in their midst; so why do you exalt yourselves above the assembly of the LORD?"
4. When Moses heard this, he fell on his face;
5. and he spoke to Korah and all his company, saying, "Tomorrow morning the LORD will show who is His, and who is holy, and will bring him near to Himself; even the one whom He will choose, He will bring near to Himself.
6. "Do this: take censers for yourselves, Korah and all your company,
7. and put fire in them, and lay incense upon them in the presence of the LORD tomorrow; and the man whom the LORD chooses shall be the one who is holy. You have gone far enough, you sons of Levi!"
8. Then Moses said to Korah, "Hear now, you sons of Levi,
9. is it not enough for you that the God of Israel has separated you from the rest of the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to Himself, to do the service of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the congregation to minister to them;
10. and that He has brought you near, Korah, and all your brothers, sons of Levi, with you? And are you seeking for the priesthood also?
11. "Therefore you and all your company are gathered together against the LORD; but as for Aaron, who is he that you grumble against him?"
12. Then Moses sent a summons to Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab; but they said, "We will not come up.
13. "Is it not enough that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey to have us die in the wilderness, but you would also lord it over us?
14. "Indeed, you have not brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Would you put out the eyes of these men? We will not come up!"
15. Then Moses became very angry and said to the LORD, "Do not regard their offering! I have not taken a single donkey from them, nor have I done harm to any of them."
16. Moses said to Korah, "You and all your company be present before the LORD tomorrow, both you and they along with Aaron.
17. "Each of you take his firepan and put incense on it, and each of you bring his censer before the LORD, two hundred and fifty firepans; also you and Aaron shall each bring his firepan."
18. So they each took his own censer and put fire on it, and laid incense on it; and they stood at the doorway of the tent of meeting, with Moses and Aaron.
19. Thus Korah assembled all the congregation against them at the doorway of the tent of meeting. And the glory of the LORD appeared to all the congregation.
20. Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,
21. "Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them instantly."
22. But they fell on their faces and said, "O God, God of the spirits of all flesh, when one man sins, will You be angry with the entire congregation?"
23. Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
24. "Speak to the congregation, saying, 'Get back from around the dwellings of Korah, Dathan and Abiram.'"
25. Then Moses arose and went to Dathan and Abiram, with the elders of Israel following him,
26. and he spoke to the congregation, saying, "Depart now from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing that belongs to them, or you will be swept away in all their sin."
27. So they got back from around the dwellings of Korah, Dathan and Abiram; and Dathan and Abiram came out and stood at the doorway of their tents, along with their wives and their sons and their little ones.
28. Moses said, "By this you shall know that the LORD has sent me to do all these deeds; for this is not my doing.
29. "If these men die the death of all men or if they suffer the fate of all men, then the LORD has not sent me.
30. "But if the LORD brings about an entirely new thing and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that is theirs, and they descend alive into Sheol, then you will understand that these men have spurned the LORD."
31. As he finished speaking all these words, the ground that was under them split open;
32. and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who belonged to Korah with their possessions.
33. So they and all that belonged to them went down alive to Sheol; and the earth closed over them, and they perished from the midst of the assembly.
34. All Israel who were around them fled at their outcry, for they said, "The earth may swallow us up!"
35. Fire also came forth from the LORD and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who were offering the incense.

Psalms 32:1-5
1. How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered!
2. How blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit!
3. When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away Through my groaning all day long.
4. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. Selah.
5. I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I did not hide; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"; And You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah.

Proverbs 11:16-18
16. A gracious woman attains honor, And ruthless men attain riches.
17. The merciful man does himself good, But the cruel man does himself harm.
18. The wicked earns deceptive wages, But he who sows righteousness gets a true reward.

Mark 11:1-19
1. As they approached Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples,
2. and said to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it and bring it here.
3. "If anyone says to you, 'Why are you doing this?' you say, 'The Lord has need of it'; and immediately he will send it back here."
4. They went away and found a colt tied at the door, outside in the street; and they untied it.
5. Some of the bystanders were saying to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?"
6. They spoke to them just as Jesus had told them, and they gave them permission.
7. They brought the colt to Jesus and put their coats on it; and He sat on it.
8. And many spread their coats in the road, and others spread leafy branches which they had cut from the fields.
9. Those who went in front and those who followed were shouting: "Hosanna! BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD;
10. Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David; Hosanna in the highest!"
11. Jesus entered Jerusalem and came into the temple; and after looking around at everything, He left for Bethany with the twelve, since it was already late.
12. On the next day, when they had left Bethany, He became hungry.
13. Seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if perhaps He would find anything on it; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.
14. He said to it, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again!" And His disciples were listening.
15. Then they came to Jerusalem. And He entered the temple and began to drive out those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves;
16. and He would not permit anyone to carry merchandise through the temple.
17. And He began to teach and say to them, "Is it not written, 'MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL THE NATIONS'? But you have made it a ROBBERS' DEN."
18. The chief priests and the scribes heard this, and began seeking how to destroy Him; for they were afraid of Him, for the whole crowd was astonished at His teaching.
19. When evening came, they would go out of the city.
