Numbers 25:1-18
1. While the Israelites were camped at Acacia, some of the men defiled themselves by sleeping with the local Moabite women.
2. These women invited them to attend sacrifices to their gods, and soon the Israelites were feasting with them and worshiping the gods of Moab.
3. Before long Israel was joining in the worship of Baal of Peor, causing the LORD's anger to blaze against his people.
4. The LORD issued the following command to Moses: "Seize all the ringleaders and execute them before the LORD in broad daylight, so his fierce anger will turn away from the people of Israel."
5. So Moses ordered Israel's judges to execute everyone who had joined in worshiping Baal of Peor.
6. Just then one of the Israelite men brought a Midianite woman into the camp, right before the eyes of Moses and all the people, as they were weeping at the entrance of the Tabernacle.
7. When Phinehas son of Eleazar and grandson of Aaron the priest saw this, he jumped up and left the assembly. Then he took a spear
8. and rushed after the man into his tent. Phinehas thrust the spear all the way through the man's body and into the woman's stomach. So the plague against the Israelites was stopped,
9. but not before 24,000 people had died.
10. Then the LORD said to Moses,
11. "Phinehas son of Eleazar and grandson of Aaron the priest has turned my anger away from the Israelites by displaying passionate zeal among them on my behalf. So I have stopped destroying all Israel as I had intended to do in my anger.
12. So tell him that I am making my special covenant of peace with him.
13. In this covenant, he and his descendants will be priests for all time, because he was zealous for his God and made atonement for the people of Israel."
14. The Israelite man killed with the Midianite woman was named Zimri son of Salu, the leader of a family from the tribe of Simeon.
15. The woman's name was Cozbi; she was the daughter of Zur, the leader of a Midianite clan.
16. Then the LORD said to Moses,
17. "Attack the Midianites and destroy them,
18. because they assaulted you with deceit by tricking you into worshiping Baal of Peor, and because of Cozbi, the daughter of a Midianite leader, who was killed on the day of the plague at Peor."

Numbers 26:1-65
1. After the plague had ended, the LORD said to Moses and to Eleazar son of Aaron, the priest,
2. "Take a census of all the men of Israel who are twenty years old or older, to find out how many of each family are of military age."
3. At that time the entire nation of Israel was camped on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho. So Moses and Eleazar the priest issued these census instructions to the leaders of Israel:
4. "Count all the men of Israel twenty years old and older, just as the LORD commanded Moses." This is the census record of all the descendants of Israel who came out of Egypt.
5. These were the clans descended from Reuben, Jacob's oldest son: The Hanochite clan, named after its ancestor Hanoch. The Palluite clan, named after its ancestor Pallu.
6. The Hezronite clan, named after its ancestor Hezron. The Carmite clan, named after its ancestor Carmi.
7. The men from all the clans of Reuben numbered 43,730.
8. Pallu was the ancestor of Eliab,
9. and Eliab was the father of Nemuel, Dathan, and Abiram. This Dathan and Abiram are the same community leaders who conspired with Korah against Moses and Aaron, defying the LORD.
10. But the earth opened up and swallowed them with Korah, and 250 of their followers were destroyed that day by fire from the LORD. This served as a warning to the entire nation of Israel.

35. These were the clans descended from the sons of Ephraim: The Shuthelahite clan, named after its ancestor Shuthelah. The Bekerite clan, named after its ancestor Beker. The Tahanite clan, named after its ancestor Tahan.

50. The men from all the clans of Naphtali numbered 45,400.
51. So the total number of Israelite men counted in the census numbered 601,730.
52. Then the LORD said to Moses,
53. "Divide the land among the tribes in proportion to their populations, as indicated by the census.
54. Give the larger tribes more land and the smaller tribes less land, each group's inheritance reflecting the size of its population.
55. Make sure you assign the land by lot, and define the inheritance of each ancestral tribe by means of the census listings.
56. Each inheritance must be assigned by lot among the larger and smaller tribal groups."
57. This is the census record for the Levites who were counted according to their clans: The Gershonite clan, named after its ancestor Gershon. The Kohathite clan, named after its ancestor Kohath. The Merarite clan, named after its ancestor Merari.
58. The Libnites, the Hebronites, the Mahlites, the Mushites, and the Korahites were all subclans of the Levites. Now Kohath was the ancestor of Amram,
59. and Amram's wife was named Jochebed. She also was a descendant of Levi, born among the Levites in the land of Egypt. Amram and Jochebed became the parents of Aaron, Moses, and their sister, Miriam.
60. To Aaron were born Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.
61. But Nadab and Abihu died when they burned before the LORD a different kind of fire than he had commanded.
62. The men from the Levite clans who were one month old or older numbered 23,000. But the Levites were not included in the total census figure of the people of Israel because they were not given an inheritance of land when it was divided among the Israelites.
63. So these are the census figures of the people of Israel as prepared by Moses and Eleazar the priest on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho.
64. Not one person that was counted in this census had been among those counted in the previous census taken by Moses and Aaron in the wilderness of Sinai.
65. For the LORD had said of them, "They will all die in the wilderness." The only exceptions were Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.

Psalms 34:1-7
1. I will praise the LORD at all times. I will constantly speak his praises.
2. I will boast only in the LORD; let all who are discouraged take heart.
3. Come, let us tell of the LORD's greatness; let us exalt his name together.
4. I prayed to the LORD, and he answered me, freeing me from all my fears.
5. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
6. I cried out to the LORD in my suffering, and he heard me. He set me free from all my fears.
7. For the angel of the LORD guards all who fear him, and he rescues them.

Proverbs 11:28-28
28. Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring.

Mark 13:21-37
21. "And then if anyone tells you, 'Look, here is the Messiah,' or, 'There he is,' don't pay any attention.
22. For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform miraculous signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God's chosen ones.
23. Watch out! I have warned you!
24. "At that time, after those horrible days end, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give light,
25. the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of heaven will be shaken.
26. Then everyone will see the Son of Man arrive on the clouds with great power and glory.
27. And he will send forth his angels to gather together his chosen ones from all over the world--from the farthest ends of the earth and heaven.
28. "Now, learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its buds become tender and its leaves begin to sprout, you know without being told that summer is near.
29. Just so, when you see the events I've described beginning to happen, you can be sure that his return is very near, right at the door.
30. I assure you, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these events have taken place.
31. Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will remain forever.
32. "However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.
33. And since you don't know when they will happen, stay alert and keep watch.
34. "The coming of the Son of Man can be compared with that of a man who left home to go on a trip. He gave each of his employees instructions about the work they were to do, and he told the gatekeeper to watch for his return.
35. So keep a sharp lookout! For you do not know when the homeowner will return--at evening, midnight, early dawn, or late daybreak.
36. Don't let him find you sleeping when he arrives without warning.
37. What I say to you I say to everyone: Watch for his return!"
