Joshua 15:1-63
1. Now the lot for the tribe of the sons of Judah according to their families reached the border of Edom, southward to the wilderness of Zin at the extreme south.
2. Their south border was from the lower end of the Salt Sea, from the bay that turns to the south.
3. Then it proceeded southward to the ascent of Akrabbim and continued to Zin, then went up by the south of Kadesh-barnea and continued to Hezron, and went up to Addar and turned about to Karka.
4. It continued to Azmon and proceeded to the brook of Egypt, and the border ended at the sea. This shall be your south border.
5. The east border was the Salt Sea, as far as the mouth of the Jordan. And the border of the north side was from the bay of the sea at the mouth of the Jordan.
6. Then the border went up to Beth-hoglah, and continued on the north of Beth-arabah, and the border went up to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben.
7. The border went up to Debir from the valley of Achor, and turned northward toward Gilgal which is opposite the ascent of Adummim, which is on the south of the valley; and the border continued to the waters of En-shemesh and it ended at En-rogel.
8. Then the border went up the valley of Ben-hinnom to the slope of the Jebusite on the south (that is, Jerusalem); and the border went up to the top of the mountain which is before the valley of Hinnom to the west, which is at the end of the valley of Rephaim toward the north.
9. From the top of the mountain the border curved to the spring of the waters of Nephtoah and proceeded to the cities of Mount Ephron, then the border curved to Baalah (that is, Kiriath-jearim).
10. The border turned about from Baalah westward to Mount Seir, and continued to the slope of Mount Jearim on the north (that is, Chesalon), and went down to Beth-shemesh and continued through Timnah.
11. The border proceeded to the side of Ekron northward. Then the border curved to Shikkeron and continued to Mount Baalah and proceeded to Jabneel, and the border ended at the sea.
12. The west border was at the Great Sea, even its coastline. This is the border around the sons of Judah according to their families.
13. Now he gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh a portion among the sons of Judah, according to the command of the LORD to Joshua, namely, Kiriath-arba, Arba being the father of Anak (that is, Hebron).
14. Caleb drove out from there the three sons of Anak: Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai, the children of Anak.
15. Then he went up from there against the inhabitants of Debir; now the name of Debir formerly was Kiriath-sepher.
16. And Caleb said, "The one who attacks Kiriath-sepher and captures it, I will give him Achsah my daughter as a wife."
17. Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, captured it; so he gave him Achsah his daughter as a wife.
18. It came about that when she came to him, she persuaded him to ask her father for a field. So she alighted from the donkey, and Caleb said to her, "What do you want?"
19. Then she said, "Give me a blessing; since you have given me the land of the Negev, give me also springs of water." So he gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.
20. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Judah according to their families.
21. Now the cities at the extremity of the tribe of the sons of Judah toward the border of Edom in the south were Kabzeel and Eder and Jagur,
22. and Kinah and Dimonah and Adadah,

Joshua 16:1-10
1. Then the lot for the sons of Joseph went from the Jordan at Jericho to the waters of Jericho on the east into the wilderness, going up from Jericho through the hill country to Bethel.
2. It went from Bethel to Luz, and continued to the border of the Archites at Ataroth.
3. It went down westward to the territory of the Japhletites, as far as the territory of lower Beth-horon even to Gezer, and it ended at the sea.
4. The sons of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, received their inheritance.
5. Now this was the territory of the sons of Ephraim according to their families: the border of their inheritance eastward was Ataroth-addar, as far as upper Beth-horon.
6. Then the border went westward at Michmethath on the north, and the border turned about eastward to Taanath-shiloh and continued beyond it to the east of Janoah.
7. It went down from Janoah to Ataroth and to Naarah, then reached Jericho and came out at the Jordan.
8. From Tappuah the border continued westward to the brook of Kanah, and it ended at the sea. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Ephraim according to their families,
9. together with the cities which were set apart for the sons of Ephraim in the midst of the inheritance of the sons of Manasseh, all the cities with their villages.
10. But they did not drive out the Canaanites who lived in Gezer, so the Canaanites live in the midst of Ephraim to this day, and they became forced laborers.

Psalms 45:1-5
1. My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my verses to the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2. You are fairer than 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 Your majesty!
4. And in Your majesty ride on victoriously, For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
5. Your arrows are sharp; The peoples fall under You; Your arrows are in the heart of the King's enemies.

Proverbs 14:4-5
4. Where no oxen are, the manger is clean, But much revenue comes by the strength of the ox.
5. A trustworthy witness will not lie, But a false witness utters lies.

Luke 11:29-54
29. As the crowds were increasing, He began to say, "This generation is a wicked generation; it seeks for a sign, and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah.
30. "For just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.
31. "The Queen of the South will rise up with the men of this generation at the judgment and condemn them, because 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 stand up with this generation at the judgment and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
33. "No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.
34. "The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness.
35. "Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness.
36. "If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its rays."
37. Now when He had spoken, a Pharisee asked Him to have lunch with him; and He went in, and reclined at the table.
38. When the Pharisee saw it, he was surprised that He had not first ceremonially washed before the meal.
39. But the Lord said to him, "Now you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and of the platter; but inside of you, you are full of robbery and wickedness.
40. "You foolish ones, did not He who made the outside make the inside also?
41. "But give that which is within as charity, and then all things are clean for you.
42. "But woe to you Pharisees! For you pay tithe of mint and rue and every kind of garden herb, and yet disregard justice and the love of God; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others.
43. "Woe to you Pharisees! For you love the chief seats in the synagogues and the respectful greetings in the market places.
44. "Woe to you! For you are like concealed tombs, and the people who walk over them are unaware of it."
45. One of the lawyers said to Him in reply, "Teacher, when You say this, You insult us too."
46. But He said, "Woe to you lawyers as well! For you weigh men down with burdens hard to bear, while you yourselves will not even touch the burdens with one of your fingers.
47. "Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and it was your fathers who killed them.
48. "So you are witnesses and approve the deeds of your fathers; because it was they who killed them, and you build their tombs.
49. "For this reason also the wisdom of God said, 'I will send to them prophets and apostles, and some of them they will kill and some they will persecute,
50. so that the blood of all the prophets, shed since the foundation of the world, may be charged against this generation,
51. from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who was killed between the altar and the house of God; yes, I tell you, it shall be charged against this generation.'
52. "Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge; you yourselves did not enter, and you hindered those who were entering."
53. When He left there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to be very hostile and to question Him closely on many subjects,
54. plotting against Him to catch Him in something He might say.
