Numbers 9:1-23
1. The LORD spoke to Moses in the Desert of Sinai in the first month of the second year after they came out of Egypt. He said,
2. "Have the Israelites celebrate the Passover at the appointed time.
3. Celebrate it at the appointed time, at twilight on the fourteenth day of this month, in accordance with all its rules and regulations."
4. So Moses told the Israelites to celebrate the Passover,
5. and they did so in the Desert of Sinai at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month. The Israelites did everything just as the LORD commanded Moses.
6. But some of them could not celebrate the Passover on that day because they were ceremonially unclean on account of a dead body. So they came to Moses and Aaron that same day
7. and said to Moses, "We have become unclean because of a dead body, but why should we be kept from presenting the LORD's offering with the other Israelites at the appointed time?"
8. Moses answered them, "Wait until I find out what the LORD commands concerning you."
9. Then the LORD said to Moses,
10. "Tell the Israelites: 'When any of you or your descendants are unclean because of a dead body or are away on a journey, they may still celebrate the LORD's Passover.
11. They are to celebrate it on the fourteenth day of the second month at twilight. They are to eat the lamb, together with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
12. They must not leave any of it till morning or break any of its bones. When they celebrate the Passover, they must follow all the regulations.
13. But if a man who is ceremonially clean and not on a journey fails to celebrate the Passover, that person must be cut off from his people because he did not present the LORD's offering at the appointed time. That man will bear the consequences of his sin.
14. "'An alien living among you who wants to celebrate the LORD's Passover must do so in accordance with its rules and regulations. You must have the same regulations for the alien and the native-born.'"
15. On the day the tabernacle, the Tent of the Testimony, was set up, the cloud covered it. From evening till morning the cloud above the tabernacle looked like fire.
16. That is how it continued to be; the cloud covered it, and at night it looked like fire.
17. Whenever the cloud lifted from above the Tent, the Israelites set out; wherever the cloud settled, the Israelites encamped.
18. At the LORD's command the Israelites set out, and at his command they encamped. As long as the cloud stayed over the tabernacle, they remained in camp.
19. When the cloud remained over the tabernacle a long time, the Israelites obeyed the LORD's order and did not set out.
20. Sometimes the cloud was over the tabernacle only a few days; at the LORD's command they would encamp, and then at his command they would set out.
21. Sometimes the cloud stayed only from evening till morning, and when it lifted in the morning, they set out. Whether by day or by night, whenever the cloud lifted, they set out.
22. Whether the cloud stayed over the tabernacle for two days or a month or a year, the Israelites would remain in camp and not set out; but when it lifted, they would set out.
23. At the LORD's command they encamped, and at the LORD's command they set out. They obeyed the LORD's order, in accordance with his command through Moses.

Numbers 10:1-36
1. The LORD said to Moses:
2. "Make two trumpets of hammered silver, and use them for calling the community together and for having the camps set out.
3. When both are sounded, the whole community is to assemble before you at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
4. If only one is sounded, the leaders-the heads of the clans of Israel-are to assemble before you.
5. When a trumpet blast is sounded, the tribes camping on the east are to set out.
6. At the sounding of a second blast, the camps on the south are to set out. The blast will be the signal for setting out.
7. To gather the assembly, blow the trumpets, but not with the same signal.
8. "The sons of Aaron, the priests, are to blow the trumpets. This is to be a lasting ordinance for you and the generations to come.
9. When you go into battle in your own land against an enemy who is oppressing you, sound a blast on the trumpets. Then you will be remembered by the LORD your God and rescued from your enemies.
10. Also at your times of rejoicing-your appointed feasts and New Moon festivals-you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God. I am the LORD your God."
11. On the twentieth day of the second month of the second year, the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle of the Testimony.
12. Then the Israelites set out from the Desert of Sinai and traveled from place to place until the cloud came to rest in the Desert of Paran.
13. They set out, this first time, at the LORD's command through Moses.
14. The divisions of the camp of Judah went first, under their standard. Nahshon son of Amminadab was in command.
15. Nethanel son of Zuar was over the division of the tribe of Issachar,
16. and Eliab son of Helon was over the division of the tribe of Zebulun.
17. Then the tabernacle was taken down, and the Gershonites and Merarites, who carried it, set out.
18. The divisions of the camp of Reuben went next, under their standard. Elizur son of Shedeur was in command.
19. Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai was over the division of the tribe of Simeon,
20. and Eliasaph son of Deuel was over the division of the tribe of Gad.
21. Then the Kohathites set out, carrying the holy things. The tabernacle was to be set up before they arrived.
22. The divisions of the camp of Ephraim went next, under their standard. Elishama son of Ammihud was in command.
23. Gamaliel son of Pedahzur was over the division of the tribe of Manasseh,
24. and Abidan son of Gideoni was over the division of the tribe of Benjamin.
25. Finally, as the rear guard for all the units, the divisions of the camp of Dan set out, under their standard. Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai was in command.
26. Pagiel son of Ocran was over the division of the tribe of Asher,
27. and Ahira son of Enan was over the division of the tribe of Naphtali.
28. This was the order of march for the Israelite divisions as they set out.
29. Now Moses said to Hobab son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses' father-in-law, "We are setting out for the place about which the LORD said, 'I will give it to you.' Come with us and we will treat you well, for the LORD has promised good things to Israel."
30. He answered, "No, I will not go; I am going back to my own land and my own people."
31. But Moses said, "Please do not leave us. You know where we should camp in the desert, and you can be our eyes.
32. If you come with us, we will share with you whatever good things the LORD gives us."
33. So they set out from the mountain of the LORD and traveled for three days. The ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them during those three days to find them a place to rest.
34. The cloud of the LORD was over them by day when they set out from the camp.
35. Whenever the ark set out, Moses said, "Rise up, O LORD! May your enemies be scattered; may your foes flee before you."
36. Whenever it came to rest, he said, "Return, O LORD, to the countless thousands of Israel."

Psalms 31:6-14
6. I hate those who cling to worthless idols; I trust in the LORD.
7. I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.
8. You have not handed me over to the enemy but have set my feet in a spacious place.
9. Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief.
10. My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning; my strength fails because of my affliction, and my bones grow weak.
11. Because of all my enemies, I am the utter contempt of my neighbors; I am a dread to my friends- those who see me on the street flee from me.
12. I am forgotten by them as though I were dead; I have become like broken pottery.
13. For I hear the slander of many; there is terror on every side; they conspire against me and plot to take my life.
14. But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, "You are my God."

Proverbs 11:7-11
7. When a wicked man dies, his hope perishes; all he expected from his power comes to nothing.
8. The righteous man is rescued from trouble, and it comes on the wicked instead.
9. With his mouth the godless destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous escape.
10. When the righteous prosper, the city rejoices; when the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy.
11. Through the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is destroyed.

Mark 9:30-50
30. They left that place and passed through Galilee. Jesus did not want anyone to know where they were,
31. because he was teaching his disciples. He said to them, "The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise."
32. But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it.
33. They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, "What were you arguing about on the road?"
34. But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
35. Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all."
36. He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them,
37. "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me."
38. "Teacher," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us."
39. "Do not stop him," Jesus said. "No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me,
40. for whoever is not against us is for us.
41. I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward.
42. "And if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around his neck.
43. If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out.
44. See Footnote
45. And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell.
46. See Footnote
47. And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell,
48. where "'their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.'
49. Everyone will be salted with fire.
50. "Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other."
