Април 13

Joshua 15:1-63
1. The lot for the tribe of the people of Judah according to their families reached southward to the boundary of Edom, to the wilderness of Zin at the farthest south.
2. And their south boundary ran from the end of the Dead Sea, from the bay that faces southward;
3. it goes out southward of the ascent of Akrabbim, passes along to Zin, and goes up south of Kadesh-barnea, along by Hezron, up to Addar, makes a turn to Karka,
4. passes along to Azmon, goes out by the Wadi of Egypt, and comes to its end at the sea. This shall be your south boundary.
5. And the east boundary is the Dead Sea, to the mouth of the Jordan. And the boundary on the north side runs from the bay of the sea at the mouth of the Jordan;
6. and the boundary goes up to Beth-hoglah, and passes along north of Beth-arabah; and the boundary goes up to the Stone of Bohan, Reuben's son;
7. and the boundary goes up to Debir from the Valley of Achor, and so northward, turning toward Gilgal, which is opposite the ascent of Adummim, which is on the south side of the valley; and the boundary passes along to the waters of En-shemesh, and ends at En-rogel;
8. then the boundary goes up by the valley of the son of Hinnom at the southern slope of the Jebusites (that is, Jerusalem); and the boundary goes up to the top of the mountain that lies over against the valley of Hinnom, on the west, at the northern end of the valley of Rephaim;
9. then the boundary extends from the top of the mountain to the spring of the Waters of Nephtoah, and from there to the towns of Mount Ephron; then the boundary bends around to Baalah (that is, Kiriath-jearim);
10. and the boundary circles west of Baalah to Mount Seir, passes along to the northern slope of Mount Jearim (that is, Chesalon), and goes down to Beth-shemesh, and passes along by Timnah;
11. the boundary goes out to the slope of the hill north of Ekron, then the boundary bends around to Shikkeron, and passes along to Mount Baalah, and goes out to Jabneel; then the boundary comes to an end at the sea.
12. And the west boundary was the Mediterranean with its coast. This is the boundary surrounding the people of Judah according to their families.
13. According to the commandment of the LORD to Joshua, he gave to Caleb son of Jephunneh a portion among the people of Judah, Kiriath-arba, that is, Hebron (Arba was the father of Anak).
14. And Caleb drove out from there the three sons of Anak: Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai, the descendants of Anak.
15. From there he went up against the inhabitants of Debir; now the name of Debir formerly was Kiriath-sepher.
16. And Caleb said, "Whoever attacks Kiriath-sepher and takes it, to him I will give my daughter Achsah as wife."
17. Othniel son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it; and he gave him his daughter Achsah as wife.
18. When she came to him, she urged him to ask her father for a field. As she dismounted from her donkey, Caleb said to her, "What do you wish?"
19. She said to him, "Give me a present; since you have set me in the land of the Negeb, give me springs of water as well." So Caleb gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.
20. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the people of Judah according to their families.
21. The towns belonging to the tribe of the people of Judah in the extreme South, toward the boundary of Edom, were Kabzeel, Eder, Jagur,

Joshua 16:1-10
1. The allotment of the Josephites went from the Jordan by Jericho, east of the waters of Jericho, into the wilderness, going up from Jericho into the hill country to Bethel;
2. then going from Bethel to Luz, it passes along to Ataroth, the territory of the Archites;
3. then it goes down westward to the territory of the Japhletites, as far as the territory of Lower Beth-horon, then to Gezer, and it ends at the sea.
4. The Josephites-- Manasseh and Ephraim-- received their inheritance.
5. The territory of the Ephraimites by their families was as follows: the boundary of their inheritance on the east was Ataroth-addar as far as Upper Beth-horon,
6. and the boundary goes from there to the sea; on the north is Michmethath; then on the east the boundary makes a turn toward Taanath-shiloh, and passes along beyond it on the east to Janoah,
7. then it goes down from Janoah to Ataroth and to Naarah, and touches Jericho, ending at the Jordan.
8. From Tappuah the boundary goes westward to the Wadi Kanah, and ends at the sea. Such is the inheritance of the tribe of the Ephraimites by their families,
9. together with the towns that were set apart for the Ephraimites within the inheritance of the Manassites, all those towns with their villages.
10. They did not, however, drive out the Canaanites who lived in Gezer: so the Canaanites have lived within Ephraim to this day but have been made to do forced labor.

Psalms 45:1-5
1. My heart overflows with a goodly theme; I address my verses to the king; my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe.
2. You are the most handsome 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 glory and majesty.
4. In your majesty ride on victoriously for the cause of truth and to defend the right; let your right hand teach you dread deeds.
5. Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; the peoples fall under you.

Proverbs 14:4-5
4. Where there are no oxen, there is no grain; abundant crops come by the strength of the ox.
5. A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies.

Luke 11:29-54
29. When the crowds were increasing, he began to say, "This generation is an evil generation; it asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.
30. For just as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so the Son of Man will be to this generation.
31. The queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the people of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to listen to the wisdom of Solomon, and see, something greater than Solomon is here!
32. The people of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the proclamation of Jonah, and see, something greater than Jonah is here!
33. "No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar, but on the lampstand so that those who enter may see the light.
34. Your eye is the lamp of your body. If your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light; but if it is not healthy, your body is full of darkness.
35. Therefore consider whether the light in you is not darkness.
36. If then your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, it will be as full of light as when a lamp gives you light with its rays."
37. While he was speaking, a Pharisee invited him to dine with him; so he went in and took his place at the table.
38. The Pharisee was amazed to see that he did not first wash before dinner.
39. Then the Lord said to him, "Now you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.
40. You fools! Did not the one who made the outside make the inside also?
41. So give for alms those things that are within; and see, everything will be clean for you.
42. "But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and herbs of all kinds, and neglect justice and the love of God; it is these you ought to have practiced, without neglecting the others.
43. Woe to you Pharisees! For you love to have the seat of honor in the synagogues and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces.
44. Woe to you! For you are like unmarked graves, and people walk over them without realizing it."
45. One of the lawyers answered him, "Teacher, when you say these things, you insult us too."
46. And he said, "Woe also to you lawyers! For you load people with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not lift a finger to ease them.
47. Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets whom your ancestors killed.
48. So you are witnesses and approve of the deeds of your ancestors; for they killed them, and you build their tombs.
49. Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, 'I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,'
50. so that this generation may be charged with the blood of all the prophets shed since the foundation of the world,
51. from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it will be charged against this generation.
52. Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge; you did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering."
53. When he went outside, the scribes and the Pharisees began to be very hostile toward him and to cross-examine him about many things,
54. lying in wait for him, to catch him in something he might say.
