Numbers 31:1-54
1. And the LORD spake unto Moses saying:
2. avenge the children of Israel of the Madianites, and afterward be gathered unto thy people.
3. And Moses spake unto the folk saying: Harness some of you unto war, and let them go upon the Madianites and avenge the LORD of the Madianites.
4. Ye shall send unto the war a thousand of every tribe thorowout all the tribes of Israel.
5. And there were taken out of the thousands of Israel twelve thousand prepared unto war, of every tribe a thousand.
6. And Moses sent them a thousand of every tribe, with Phineas the son of Eleazer the priest to war, and the holy vessels and the trumpets to blow with in his hand.
7. And they warred against the Madianites, as the LORD commanded Moses, and slew all the males.
8. And they slew the kings of Madian among other that were slain: Eui, Rekem, Zur, Hur and Reba: five kings of Madian. And they slew Balam the son of Beor with the sword.
9. And the children of Israel took all the women of Madian prisoners and their children, and spoiled all their cattle, their substance and their goods.
10. And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their castles with fire.
11. And they took all the spoil and all they could catch, both of men and beasts.
12. And they brought the captives and that which they had taken and all the spoil unto Moses and Eleazer the priest and unto the company of the children of Israel, even unto the host, in the fields of Moab by Jordan nigh to Jericho.
13. And Moses and Eleazer the priest and all the lords of the congregation went out of the host against them.
14. And Moses was angry with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands and over hundreds, which came from war and battle,
15. and said unto them: Have ye saved the women alive?
16. behold, these caused the children of Israel thorow Balam, to commit trespass against the LORD, by the reason of Peor, and there followed a plague among the congregation of the LORD.
17. Now therefore slay all the men children and the women that have lien with men fleshly:
18. But all the women children that have not lien with men, keep alive for your selves.
19. And lodge without the host seven days all that have killed any person and all that have twiched any dead body, and purify both your selves and your prisoners the third day and the seventh.
20. And sprinkle all your raiments and all that is made of skins, and all work of goats' hair, and all things made of wood.
21. And Eleazer the priest said unto all the men of war which went out to battle: this is the ordinance of the law which the LORD commanded Moses:
22. Gold, silver, brass, iron, tin and lead,
23. and all that may abide the fire, ye shall make it go thorow the fire, and then it is clean. Neverthelater, it shall be sprinkled with sprinkling water. And all that suffereth not the fire, ye shall make go thorow the water.
24. And wash your clothes the seventh day, and then ye are clean. And afterward come into the host.
25. And the LORD spake unto Moses saying:
26. take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of the women and of cattle, thou and Eleazer the priest and the ancient heads of the congregation.
27. And divide it into two parts, between them that took the war upon them and went out to battle and all the congregation.
28. And take a portion unto the LORD of the men of war which went out to battle one of five hundred, of the women and of the oxen and of the asses and of the sheep
29. and ye shall take it of their half and give it unto Eleazer the priest, an heave offering unto the LORD.
30. And of the half of the children of Israel, take one of fifty, of the women, of the oxen, of the asses and of the sheep, and of all manner of beasts, and give them unto the Levites which wait upon the habitation of the LORD.
31. And Moses and Eleazer the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.
32. And the booty and the prey which the men of war had caught, was six hundred thousand and seventy five thousand sheep:
33. and seventy two thousand oxen:
34. and sixty one thousand asses:
35. and thirty two thousand women that had lien by no man.
36. And the half which was the part of them that went out to war, was three hundred thousand and thirty seven thousand and five hundred sheep:
37. And the LORD's part of the sheep was six hundred and seventy five.
38. And the oxen were thirty six thousand, of which the LORD's part was seventy two.
39. And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred, of which the LORD's part was sixty one.
40. And the women were sixteen thousand, of which the LORD's part was thirty two souls.
41. And Moses gave that sum which was the LORD's heave offering unto Eleazer the priest: as the LORD commanded Moses.
42. And the other half of the children of Israel which Moses separated from the men of war
43. (that is to wete, the half that pertained unto the congregation) was three hundred thousand and thirty seven thousand and five hundred sheep:
44. and thirty six thousand oxen:
45. and thirty thousand asses and five hundred:
46. and sixteen thousand women.
47. And Moses took of this half that pertained unto the children of Israel: one of every fifty, both of the women and of the cattle, and gave them unto the Levites which waited upon the habitation of the LORD, as the LORD commanded Moses.
48. And the officers of thousands of the host, the captains over the thousands and the captains over the hundreds came forth and said unto Moses:
49. Thy servants have taken the sum of the men of war, which were under our hand, and there lacked not one man of them.
50. We have therefore brought a present unto the LORD what every man found of Jewels of gold, chains, bracelets, rings, earrings and spangles, to make an atonement for our souls before the LORD.
51. And Moses and Eleazer took the gold of them: Jewels of all manner fashions.
52. And all the gold of the heave offering of the LORD, of the captains over thousands and hundreds was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty sicles,
53. which(for) the men of war had spoiled, every man for himself.
54. And Moses and Eleazer the priest took the gold of the captains over the thousands and over the hundreds, and brought it into the tabernacle of witness: to be a memorial unto the children of Israel, before the LORD.

Numbers 32:1-42
1. The children of Ruben and the children of Gad, had an exceeding great multitude of cattle. And when they saw the land of Jaeser and the land of Gilead that it was an apt place for cattle,
2. they came and spake unto Moses and Eleazer the priest and unto the lords of the congregation saying:
3. The land of Ataroth, Dibo and Beon,
4. which country the LORD smote before the congregation of Israel: is a land for cattle and we thy servants have cattle
5. wherefore (said they) if we have found grace in thy sight, let this land be given unto thy servants to possess, and bring us not over Jordan.
6. And Moses said unto the children of Gad and of Ruben: shall your brethren go to war and ye tarry here?
7. Wherefore discourage ye the hearts of the children of Israel for to go over into the land which the LORD hath given them?
8. This did your fathers, when I sent them from Cades bernea to see the land.
9. And they went up even unto the river of Escol and saw the land, and discouraged the hearts of the children of Israel, that they should not go into the land which the LORD had given them.
10. And the LORD was wroth the same time and sware saying:
11. None of the men that came out of Egypt from twenty year old and above, shall see the land which I swore unto Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, because they have not continually followed me:
12. save Caleb the son of Jephune the Kenesite, and Josua the son of Nun, for they have followed me continually.
13. And the LORD was angry with Israel, and made them wander in the wilderness forty year, until all the generation that had done evil in the sight of the LORD were consumed.
14. And behold, ye are risen up in your father's stead, the increase of sinful men, to augment the fierce wrath of the LORD to Israelward.
15. For if ye turn away from after him, he will yet again leave the people in the wilderness, so shall ye destroy all this folk.
16. And they went near him and said: we will build sheepfolds here for our sheep and for our cattle, and cities for our children:
17. But we our selves will go ready armed before the children of Israel, until we have brought them unto their place. And our children shall dwell in the strong(fenced) cities, because of the inhabiters of the land.
18. And we will not return unto our houses, until the children of Israel have inherited: every man his inheritance.
19. For we will not inherit with them on yonder side Jordan forward, because our inheritance is fallen to us on this side Jordan eastward.
20. And Moses said unto them: If ye will do this thing, that ye will go all harnessed before the LORD to war,
21. and will go all of you in harness over Jordan before the LORD, until he have cast out his enemies before him,
22. and until the land be subdued before the LORD, then ye shall return and be without sin against the LORD and against Israel, and this land shall be your possession before the LORD.
23. But and if ye will not do so, behold, ye sin against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.
24. Build your cities for your children and folds for your sheep, and see ye do that ye have spoken.
25. And the Children of Gad and of Ruben spake unto Moses saying: thy servants will do as my lord commandeth.
26. Our children, our wives, substance and all our cattle shall remain here in the cities of Gilead.
27. But we thy servants will go all harnessed for the war unto battle before the LORD, as my lord hath said.
28. And Moses commanded Eleazer the priest: and Josua the son of Nun and the ancient heads of the tribes of the children of Israel,
29. and said unto them: If the children of Gad and Ruben will go with you over Jordan, all prepared to fight before the LORD: then when the land is subdued unto you, give them the land of Gilead to possess,
30. but and if they will not go over with you in harness, then they shall have their possessions among you in the land of Canaan.
31. And the children of Gad and Ruben answered saying: that which the LORD hath said unto thy servants we will do.
32. We will go harnessed before the LORD into the land of Canaan, and the possession of our inheritance shall be on this side the Jordan.
33. And Moses gave unto the children of Gad and of Ruben and unto half the tribe of Manasse the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sehon king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of Og king of Basan, the land that longed unto the cities thereof in the coasts of the country round about.
34. And the children of Gad built Dibo, ataroth Aroer,
35. Atroth, Sophan, Jaeser, Jegabea,
36. Bethnimra and Betharan strong(fenced) cities, and they built folds for their sheep.
37. And the children of Ruben built Hesebon, Elalea, Kiriathaim,
38. Nebo, Baal Meon and turned their names, and Sibama also: and gave names unto the cities which they built.
39. And the children of Machir the son of Manasse went to Gilead and took it, and put out the Amorites that were therein.
40. And Moses gave Gilead unto Machir the son of Manasse and he dwelt therein.
41. And Jahir the son of Manasse went and took the small towns thereof, and called them the towns of Jair.
42. And Nobah went and took kenath with the towns longing thereto, and called it Nobah after his own name.

Psalms 35:1-8
1. Of David. Strive thou with them, O LORD, that strive with me, fight thou against them that fight against me.
2. Lay hand upon the shield and spear, and stand up to help me.
3. Draw out thy sword, and stop(stoppe) the way against them that persecute me, say unto my soul: I am thy help.
4. Let them be confounded and put to shame, that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion, that imagine mischief for me.
5. Let them be as the dust before the wind, and the angel of the LORD scattering them.
6. Let their way be dark and slippery, and the angel of the LORD to persecute them.
7. For they have privily laid their net to destroy me without cause, yea, and made a pit for my soul, which I never deserved.
8. Let a sudden destruction come upon him unawares, and the net that he hath laid privily, catch himself, that he may fall into his own mischief.

Proverbs 12:1-1
1. Whoso loveth wisdom, will be content to be reformed: but he that hateth to be reproved, is a fool.

Mark 14:55-72
55. And the high priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesu, to put him to death; And they found none.
56. Yet many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.
57. And there arose certain and brought false witness against him, saying:
58. We heard him say: I will destroy(break down) this temple made with hands, and within three days I will build another, made without hands.
59. And(But) their witness agreed not together.
60. And the highest priest stood up amongst them all, and asked Jesus saying: answerest thou nothing? How is it that these bear witness against thee?
61. And he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the highest priest asked him, and said unto him: Art thou the Christ the son of the blessed?
62. And Jesus said: I am. And ye shall see the son of man sit on the right hand of power, and come in the clouds of heaven.
63. Then the highest priest rent his clothes and said: what need we any further (of) witness?
64. ye have heard the blasphemy, what think ye? And they all gave sentence that he was worthy of death.
65. And some began to spit at him, and to cover his face, and to beat him with their fists, and to say unto him, aread(prophecie) unto us. And the servants buffeted him on the face.
66. And Peter was beneath in the palace, and there came one of the wenches of the highest priest;
67. And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked on him, and said: was not thou also with Jesus of Nazareth?
68. And he denied it saying: I know him not, neither wot I what thou sayest: And he went out into the porch, and the cock crew.
69. And a damsel saw him, and again began to say to them that stood by, this is one of them.
70. And he denied it again. And anon after,(And after a litle while) again they that stood by, said (again) to Peter: surely thou art one of them, for thou art of Galilee, and thy speech agreeth thereto.
71. And he began to curse and to swear, saying: I know not this man of whom ye speak.
72. And again the cock crew. And Peter remembered the word that Jesus said unto him: before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice, and began to weep.
