Deuteronomy ২৫:১-১৯
১. Suppose two men don't agree about something. Then they must take their case to court. The judges will decide the case. They will let the one who isn't guilty go free. And they will punish the one who is guilty.
২. The guilty one might have done something that's worthy of a beating. Then the judge will make him lie down and be beaten with a whip right there in court. The number of strokes should fit the crime.
৩. But the judge must not give the guilty man more than 40 strokes. If more than that are used, you will look down on your Israelite neighbor.
৪. Don't stop an ox from eating while you use it to separate grain from straw.
৫. Suppose two brothers are living near each other. And one of them dies without having a son. Then his widow must not get married to anyone outside the family. Her husband's brother should marry her. That's what a brother-in-law is supposed to do.
৬. Her first baby boy will be named after her first husband. Then the dead man's name will not be wiped out in Israel.
৭. But suppose the man doesn't want to get married to his brother's wife. Then she will go to the elders at the gate of the town. She will say, "My husband's brother refuses to keep his brother's name alive in Israel. He won't do for me what a brother-in-law is supposed to do."
৮. Then the elders in his town will send for him. They will talk to him. But he still might say, "I don't want to marry her."
৯. Then his brother's widow will go up to him in front of the elders. She'll pull one of his sandals off his foot. She'll spit in his face. And she'll say, "That's what we do to a man who won't build up his brother's family line."
১০. That man's family line will be known in Israel as The Family of the Man Whose Sandal Was Pulled Off.
১১. Suppose two men are fighting. And the wife of one of them comes to save her husband from his attacker. So she reaches out and grabs hold of his sex organs.
১২. Then you must cut off her hand. Don't feel sorry for her.
১৩. Don't have two different scales. You must not have one that weighs things heavier than they really are and another that weighs them lighter than they are.
১৪. And don't have two different sets of measures. You must not have one set that measures things larger than they really are and another that measures them smaller than they are.
১৫. You must use weights and measures that are honest and exact. Then you will live a long time in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
১৬. He hates anyone who cheats.
১৭. Remember what the Amalekites did to you on your way out of Egypt.
১৮. You were tired and worn out. They met you on your journey. They attacked everyone who was lagging behind. They didn't have any respect for God.
১৯. The Lord your God will give you peace and rest from all of the enemies who are around you. He'll do it in the land he's giving you to take over as your very own. Then you will wipe out the memory of the Amalekites from the earth. Don't forget to do it!

Deuteronomy ২৬:১-১৯
১. You will enter the land the Lord your God is giving you as your own. You will take it over. You will settle down in it.
২. When you do, get some of the first share of everything your soil produces. Put it in a basket. It's from the land the Lord your God is giving you. Take your gifts and go to the special place he will choose. He will put his Name there.
৩. Speak to the priest who is in office at that time. Tell him, "I announce today to the Lord your God that I have come to this land. It's the land he promised with an oath to our fathers to give us."
৪. The priest will take the basket from you. He'll set it down in front of the altar of the Lord your God.
৫. Then you will speak while the Lord is listening. You will say, "My father Jacob was a wanderer from the land of Aram. He went down into Egypt with a few people. He lived there and became the father of a great nation. It had huge numbers of people.
৬. "But the people of Egypt treated us badly. They made us suffer. They made us work very hard.
৭. Then we cried out to the Lord. He is the God of our people who lived long ago. He heard our voice. He saw how much we were suffering. The Egyptians were crushing us. They were making us work very hard.
৮. "So the Lord reached out his mighty hand and powerful arm and brought us out of Egypt. He did great and wonderful things. He did miraculous signs and wonders.
৯. He brought us to this place. He gave us this land. It's a land that has plenty of milk and honey.
১০. "Now, Lord, I'm bringing you the first share of crops from the soil. After all, you have given them to me." Place the basket in front of the Lord your God. Bow down to him.
১১. You and the Levites and the outsiders among you will be full of joy. You will enjoy all of the good things the Lord your God has given to you and your family.
১২. You will set apart a tenth of everything you produce in the third year. That's the year for giving the tenth to people who have special needs. You will give it to the Levites, outsiders and widows. You will also give it to children whose fathers have died. Then all of them will have plenty to eat in your towns.
১৩. Speak to the Lord your God. Say to him, "I have taken your sacred share from my house. I have given it to the Levites, outsiders and widows. I have also given it to children whose fathers have died. I've done everything you commanded me to do. I haven't turned away from your commands. I haven't forgotten any of them.
১৪. I haven't eaten any part of your sacred share while I was sobbing over someone who had died. I haven't taken any of it from my house while I was 'unclean.' And I haven't offered any of it to the dead. Lord my God, I've obeyed you. I've done everything you commanded me to do.
১৫. "Look down from the holy place where you live in heaven. Bless your people Israel. Bless the land you have given us. It's the land you promised with an oath to give to our fathers. It's a land that has plenty of milk and honey."
১৬. This very day the Lord your God commands you to follow all of those rules and laws. Be careful to obey them with all your heart and with all your soul.
১৭. Today you have announced that the Lord is your God. You have said you would live exactly as he wants you to live. You have agreed to keep his rules, commands and laws. And you have said you would obey him.
১৮. Today the Lord has announced that you are his people. He has said that you are his special treasure. He promised that you would be. He has told you to keep all of his commands.
১৯. He has announced that he will make you famous. He'll give you more praise and honor than all of the other nations he has made. And he has said that you will be a holy nation. The Lord your God has set you apart for himself. That's exactly what he promised to do.

Psalms ৩৯:৭-১১
৭. "Lord, what can I look forward to now? You are the only hope I have.
৮. Save me from all the wrong things I've done. Don't let foolish people make fun of me.
৯. I keep silent. I don't open my mouth. You are the one who has caused all of this to happen.
১০. Please stop beating me. I'm about to die from the blows of your hand.
১১. You correct and punish people for their sin. Just as a moth eats cloth, you destroy their wealth. No one's life lasts any longer than a breath. Selah

Proverbs ১৩:৪-৬
৪. People who refuse to work want things and get nothing. But the longings of people who work hard are completely satisfied.
৫. Those who do right hate what is false. But those who do wrong bring shame and dishonor.
৬. Doing right guards those who are honest. But evil destroys those who are sinful.

Luke ৬:১-২৬
১. One Sabbath day Jesus was walking through the grainfields. His disciples began to break off some heads of grain. They rubbed them in their hands and ate them.
২. Some of the Pharisees said, "It is against the Law to do this on the Sabbath. Why are you doing it?"
৩. Jesus answered them, "Haven't you ever read about what David did? He and his men were hungry.
৪. He entered the house of God and took the holy bread. He ate the bread that only priests were allowed to eat. David also gave some to his men."
৫. Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath day."
৬. On another Sabbath day, Jesus went into the synagogue and was teaching. A man whose right hand was weak and twisted was there.
৭. The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were trying to find fault with Jesus. So they watched him closely. They wanted to see if he would heal on the Sabbath.
৮. But Jesus knew what they were thinking. He spoke to the man who had the weak and twisted hand. "Get up and stand in front of everyone," he said. So the man got up and stood there.
৯. Then Jesus said to them, "What does the Law say we should do on the Sabbath day? Should we do good? Or should we do evil? Should we save life? Or should we destroy it?"
১০. He looked around at all of them. Then he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He did, and his hand was as good as new.
১১. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law were very angry. They began to talk to each other about what they might do to Jesus.
১২. On one of those days, Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray. He spent the night praying to God.
১৩. When morning came, he called for his disciples to come to him. He chose 12 of them and made them apostles.
১৪. Simon was one of them. Jesus gave him the name Peter. There were also Simon's brother Andrew, James, John, Philip and Bartholomew.
১৫. And there were Matthew, Thomas, and James, son of Alphaeus. There were also Simon who was called the Zealot
১৬. and Judas, son of James. Judas Iscariot was one of them too. He was the one who would later hand Jesus over to his enemies.
১৭. Jesus went down the mountain with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there. A large number of other people were there too. They came from all over Judea, including Jerusalem. They also came from the coast of Tyre and Sidon.
১৮. They had all come to hear Jesus and to be healed of their sicknesses. People who were troubled by evil spirits were made well.
১৯. Everyone tried to touch Jesus. Power was coming from him and healing them all.
২০. Jesus looked at his disciples. He said to them, "Blessed are you who are needy. God's kingdom belongs to you.
২১. Blessed are you who are hungry now. You will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are sad now. You will laugh.
২২. Blessed are you when people hate you, when they have nothing to do with you and say bad things about you, and when they treat your name as something evil. They do all this because you are followers of the Son of Man.
২৩. "Their people treated the prophets the same way long ago. When these things happen to you, be glad and jump for joy. You will receive many blessings in heaven.
২৪. "But how terrible it will be for you who are rich! You have already had your easy life.
২৫. How terrible for you who are well fed now! You will go hungry. How terrible for you who laugh now! You will cry and be sad.
২৬. How terrible for you when everyone says good things about you! Their people treated the false prophets the same way long ago.
