Joshua 7:1-26
1. But yet the children of Israel trespassed in the excommunicate things: for Acan the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zareh of the tribe of Juda, took of the excommunicate things. And the wrath of the LORD waxed hot against the children of Israel.
2. Then Josua sent men from Jericho to Ai which is beside Bethaven, on the east side of Bethel, and spake unto them saying, get you up and view the country. And the men went up and spied out Ai.
3. And returned unto Josua and said unto him, let not all the people go up, but let as it were a two or three thousand men go up and destroy Ai, and make not all the people to labour thither, for they are but few.
4. And so there went up thither about a three thousand men, which fled before the men of Ai.
5. And the men of Ai smote of them upon a thirty and six men, and chased them before the gates even unto Gabarim, and smote them in the going down. And the hearts of the people were discouraged and melted like water.
6. And Josua rent his clothes and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of the LORD until the eventide, both he and the elders of Israel, and put earth upon their heads.
7. And Josua said, Ah, Lord Jehovah,(Lorde Iehouah) wherefore hast thou brought this people over Jordan to deliver us into the hands of the Amorites to destroy us: would to God we had adventured and dwelt on the other side Jordan.
8. Oh Lord(LORDE) what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies:
9. Moreover the Cananites, and all the inhabiters of the land shall hear of it, and shall come about us and destroy the name of us out of the world. And then what wilt thou do unto thy mighty name?
10. And the LORD said unto Josua, get thee up, wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face?
11. Israel hath sinned and also transgressed mine appointment, which I commanded them, and have taken of the excommunicate things, and have stolen and hid them, and also put them unto their own stuff:
12. And therefore the children of Israel can not stand before their enemies. They shall turn their backs before their enemies, because they be excommunicate. Neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the excommunicate from among you.
13. Up and sanctify the people and bid them to sanctify themselves against the morrow: for so sayeth the LORD God of Israel, the excommunication is among you Israel, and therefore ye can not stand before your enemies, until ye have put the excommunication from among you.
14. Tomorrow morning ye shall come by your tribes. And the tribe which the LORD shall find guilty, shall come by kindreds. And the kindred which the LORD shall find guilty, shall come by households. And the household which the LORD shall find faulty, shall come man by man.
15. And he that is found in the excommunication shall be burnt with fire, both he and all that pertaineth unto him, because he hath transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he hath wrought folly in Israel.
16. And so Josua rose up early in the morning and brought Israel by their tribes: and the tribe of Juda was caught.
17. Then he brought the kindreds of Juda, and found the kindred of the Zarehites guilty.
18. And he brought the kindred of the Zarehites by householders, and Zabdi was caught. And he brought his household man by man, and Acan the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zareh in the tribe of Judah was caught.
19. And Josua said unto Acan: my son, give glory to the LORD God of Israel, and give him praise, and shew me what thou hast done, and hide it not from me.
20. And Acan answered Josua and said: of a truth I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and so and so have I done.
21. I saw among the spoil a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundredth sicles of silver, and a tongue of gold of fifty sicles weight: and I coveted them, and I took them. And behold they lie hid in the earth in my tent and the silver thereunder.
22. And then Josua sent messengers which ran unto the tent. And behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver thereunder.
23. And they took them out of the midst of his tent and brought them unto Josua and unto all the children of Israel, and poured them out before the LORD.
24. And Josua took Acan the son of Zareh, and the silver, and the garment, and the tongue of gold, and his sons and his daughters, his oxen, asses, sheep, his tent and all that he had, and all Israel with him, and brought them unto the valley of Acor.
25. And Josua said: Inasmuch as thou hast troubled us: the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burnt them with fire, and overwhelmed them with stones.
26. And they cast upon him a great heap of stones that remaineth unto this day. And so the LORD turned from his fierce wrath. Wherefore the name of the place is called the valley of Acor unto this day.

Joshua 8:1-35
1. And the LORD said unto Josua: fear not, nor dread: but take all the men of war with thee, and up and get thee to Ai. Behold I have given into thy hand, the king of Ai, and his people, his city and his land.
2. And thou shalt do to Ai and her king, as thou didst unto Jericho and her king. Nevertheless the spoil and cattle thereof, ye shall take unto yourselves. But lay a watch unto the town on the backside thereof.
3. And then Josua arose and all the men of war, to go up unto Ai. And Josua chose out thirty thousand men of war, and sent them by night.
4. And he commanded them saying: See that ye lie await unto the town on the backside thereof. Go not very far from the city, and see that ye be all ready.
5. And I and all the people that are with me, will approach unto the city. And when they come out against us, as at the first time, then will we flee before them.
6. And they will come out after us, until we have plucked them away from the city. For they will say, they flee before us, as at the first time: for we will flee before them.
7. Then shall ye rise up from lying await and destroy the city: For the LORD your God will deliver it into your hands.
8. As soon therefore as ye have taken the city, see that ye set it on fire. According to the commandment of the LORD see that ye do, behold, I have charged you.
9. And Josua sent them forth, and they went to lie await, and lay between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of Ai. But Josua lodged that night among the people.
10. And he rose up early in the morning and numbered the people and went up, both he and the elders of Israel before the people, unto Ai.
11. And all the men of war that were with him, went up and drew nigh, and came before the city, and pitched on the north side of Ai, a valley being between them and Ai,
12. and he took upon a five thousand men and put them to lie await, between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city.
13. And he put the people even all the host, on the north side of the city, and the lyers await on the west. And Josua went the same night into the midst of the valley.
14. And when the king of Ai saw that they hasted and rose up early, then the people of the city went out against Israel, to battle, both the king and all his people, at a time appointed, even before the plain, and wist not that there were lyers await on the backside of the city.
15. And Josua and Israel were put to the worse before them, and fled toward the wilderness.
16. And all the people of the town cried to follow after them. And they followed after Josua till they were drawn away from the city:
17. So that there was not a man left in Ai, or in Bethel, that went not out after Israel. And they left the city open and followed after Israel.
18. Then the LORD said unto Josua stretch out the buckler that is in thine hand toward Ai, for I have given thee it. And Josua stretched out the buckler that was in his hand, toward the city.
19. And the lyers await rose quickly out of their places, and ran, as soon as Josua had stretched out his hand, and they entered into the city, and took(wanne) it, and hasted and set it on fire.
20. And when the men of Ai looked back after them and saw. Behold, the smoke of the city ascended up to heaven. And they had no place to flee either this way or that, for the people that fled to the wilderness turned back again upon the followers.
21. And when Josua and all Israel saw that the lyers await had taken the city and that the smoke of it ascended. They turned again and laid on the men of Ai.
22. And the other issued out of the city against them. And so were they in the midst of Israel, these being on the one side of them, and the rest on the other. And they laid upon them, so that they let none either remain or escape.
23. And the king of Ai they took alive and brought him to Josua.
24. And when Israel had made an end of slaying all the inhabiters of Ai in the fields and in the wilderness by which they chased them, and when they were all fallen on the Edge of the sword, until they were wasted. Then all Israel returned unto Ai and smote it with the edge of the sword.
25. And all that fell that day, both of men and women, were twelve thousand, even all the men of Ai.
26. For Josua plucked not his hand back again which he stretched out with the buckler, until they had utterly destroyed all the inhabiters of Ai.
27. Only the cattle and the spoil of the said city, Israel took unto themselves, according unto the word of the LORD, which he commanded Josua.
28. And Josua set Ai on fire and made it an heap for ever and a wilderness, even unto this day.
29. And the king of Ai he hanged on tree, until evening. And as soon as the son was down, Josua commanded and they took the carcass down off the tree, and cast it in the entering of the gate of the city, and cast thereon a great heap of stones, that remaineth unto this day.
30. Then Josua built an altar unto the LORD God of Israel, in mount Ebal,
31. as Moses the servant of the LORD commanded the children of Israel, according as it is written in the book of the law of Moses: an altar of rough stone over which no tool of iron was lifted. And they sacrificed thereon burnt sacrifice, and offered peaceofferings.
32. And he wrote there upon the stones the second law of Moses which he wrote in the presence of the children of Israel.
33. And all Israel and the elders thereof, and their officers and judges stood, part on this side the ark, and part on that side, before the priests: that were Levites which bare the ark of the appointment of the LORD: as well the stranger, as they that were born among them: half of them on the forefront of the Mount of Garizim, and half of them on the forefront of mount Ebal: as Moses the servant of the LORD commanded, first to bless the people of Israel.
34. And after that he read all the words of the law, both the blessing and cursing, according to all that is written in the book of the law:
35. so that there was not one word of all that Moses commanded, which Josua read not, before all the congregation of Israel, with women and children and the strangers that were among them.

Psalms 43:1-5
1. Give sentence upon me (O God) and defend my cause against the unholy people: Oh deliver me from the deceitful, and wicked man.
2. For thou (O God) art my strength: why hast thou shot me from thee? Why go I then so heavily, while the enemy oppresseth me?
3. Oh send out thy light and thy truth, that they may lead me and bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy dwelling.
4. That I may go in to the altar of God, even unto the God which is my joy and pleasure, and upon the harp to give thanks unto thee, O God, my God.
5. Why art thou so heavy (O my soul) and why art thou so disquieted within me? O put thy trust in God, for I will yet give him thanks for the help of his countenance, and because he is my God.

Proverbs 13:22-23
22. Which their children's children shall have in possession, for the riches of the sinner is laid up for the just.
23. There is plenteousness of food in the fields of the poor, and shall be increased out of measure.

Luke 9:37-62
37. (And) It chanced on the next day as they came down from the hill, much people came and met him.
38. And behold a man of the company cried out saying: Master, I beseech thee behold my son, for he is all that I have:
39. and see, a spirit taketh him, and suddenly he crieth, and he teareth him that he foameth again, and unethe(with much pain) departeth he from him, when he hath rent him:
40. And I have besought thy disciples to cast him out, and they could not.
41. Jesus answered, and said: O generation without faith,(unfaithful) and crooked: how long shall I be with you? And shall suffer you? Bring thy son hither.
42. As he yet was a coming, the fiend rent him, and tare him. (And) Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him to his father.
43. And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. While they wondered every one at all things which he did: He said unto his disciples:
44. Let these sayings sink down into(Comprehend these sayings in) your ears. The time will come, when the son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men.
45. But they wist not what that word meant, and it was hid from them that they understood it not. And they feared to ask him of that saying.(word)
46. Then there arose a disputation among them, who should be the greatest.
47. When Jesus perceived the thoughts of their hearts, he took a child, and set him hard by him,
48. and said unto them: Whosoever receiveth this child in my name, receiveth me. And whosoever receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me. For he that amongst you, is the least,(For he that is least among you all) the same shall be great.
49. (And) John answered and said: Master we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us.
50. And Jesus said unto him: forbid ye him not. For he that is not against you,(us) is with you.(us)
51. And it followed when the time was come that he should be received up and that he determined himself(up, then he set his face) to go to Jerusalem:
52. and sent messengers before him. And they went, and entered into a city of the Samaritans to make ready(prepare lodging) for him.
53. And(But) they would not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.
54. When his disciples, James, and John, saw that, they said: Lord, wilt thou that we command, that fire come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Helias did?
55. Jesus turned about, and rebuked them saying: ye wot not what manner spirit ye are of.(Know ye not, what maner of spirit ye are of?)
56. The son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another town.
57. (And) It chanced as he went on their journey,(in the way) a certain man said unto him: I will follow thee whithersoever thou go.
58. Jesus said unto him: foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests: but the son of man hath not whereon to lay his head.
59. And he said unto another: follow me. And the same said: Lord suffer me(Sir, give me leave) first to go and bury my father.
60. Jesus said unto him. Let the dead, bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
61. And another said: I will follow thee Lord: But let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
62. Jesus said unto him: No man that putteth his hand to the plough, and looketh back, is apt to(mete for) the kingdom of God.
