2 Samuel 17:1-29
1. Then Ahitophel said unto Absalom: let me choose out, I pray thee, twelve thousand men. And I will up and follow after David by night.
2. And I will come upon him while he is weary and weak handed, and will fear him, that all the people that are with him shall flee. And so will I smite the king onely,
3. and will bring again all the people unto thee. And when all these men which thou seekest are turned to thee, all the people shall have rest.
4. And the saying pleased Absalom well and all the elders of Israel.
5. Then said Absalom: call also Husai the Arachite and let us hear his sentence.
6. When Husai was come to Absalom, Absalom spake unto him saying: Ahitophel hath given such counsel: whether it be best we do after his saying or not, tell thou.
7. Then said Husai to Absalom: the counsel that Ahitophel hath given is not good at this time.
8. For (said Husai) thou knowest thy father and the men that are with him, how that they be strong men. And they be chafed in their minds, even as a bear robbed of her whelps. And thy father is a man practised in war, and will not lie a nights among the common people.
9. Behold he lurketh now in some cave or in some other place. And thereto though some of his men be overthrown at the first brunt, yet they that hear it will think the people that followeth Absalom be put to the worse.
10. By the reason whereof the best men thou hast whose hearts are as the hearts of Lions, shall shrink thereat. For all Israel knoweth that thy father is a man, and that they which be with him be children of activity.
11. But my counsel is, that all Israel be gathered unto thee, from Dan to Bersabe, as the sand of the sea in number, and that thou go to battle in thine own person.
12. And we will come upon him in one place or other, where we shalt find him, and we will pitch a field against him, even as thick as the dew falleth on the ground. And there shall not one of them be left, neither he nor any of all that are with him.
13. Moreover if he take a town then shall all the men of Israel bring ropes to that city, and we will draw it into the river, until there be not one stone found upon another.
14. And Absalom and all the men of Israel said: that the counsel of Husai the Arachite was better than the counsel of Ahitophel. For it was even the LORD's determination to destroy the counsel of Ahitophel: which was good, that the LORD might bring evil upon Absalom.
15. Then said Husai unto Sadock and Abiathar the priests: of this and that manner did Ahitophel and the elders of Israel counsel Absalom. And thus and thus have I counselled.
16. Now therefore send quickly and shew David saying: tarry not all night in the fields of the wilderness, but get thee over, lest the king be devoured and all the people that are with him.
17. Now Jonathas and Ahimaaz abode by the well rogell: for they might not be seen to come in to the city. And a wench went and told them. And they to go and shewed king David.
18. Nevertheless there was a lad saw them which told it to Absalom. But they went both of them away quickly and came to a man's house in Bahurim, which had a well in his yard, into which they went down.
19. And the wife took and spread a coverlet on the top of the well and strawed thereon steeped barley to dry. And the thing was not spied.
20. And when Absalom's servants came to the wife to the house and asked where one Ahimaaz and Jonathas were, the wife said unto them: they be gone over the little brook of water. And when they had sought them and could not find them, then they returned to Jerusalem.
21. And as soon as they were departed, the other came out of the well, and went and told king David and said unto him: up and get you quickly over the water for such counsel hath Ahitophel given.
22. Then David arose and all the people that were with him, and they were come over Jordan be that it was day, that there lacked not one of them that was not come over Jordan.
23. And when Ahitophel saw that his counsel was not followed, he saddled his Ass and arose and gat him home to his own house and to his own city, and put his household in order and hanged himself and died, and was buried in the sepulchre of his father.
24. Then David came to Mahanaim. And Absalom passed over Jordan, both he and all the men of Israel with him.
25. And Absalom made Amasa captain of the host in the stead of Joab, which Amasa was a man's son named Jethra a Jezrahelite that went into Abigail the daughter of Naah sister to Zaruiah Joab's mother.
26. And Israel and Absalom pitched in the land of Gilead.
27. And when David was come to Mahanaim, Sobi the son of Naah out of Rabath the city of the children of Ammon, and Machir the son of Amiel out of Lodaber and Berzelai the Gileadite out of Rogelim,
28. brought beds, basins, and earthen vessels: and also corn, barley, flour and parched corn, beans and rice
29. honey, butter, sheep and cheese of kine, for David and all the people that were with him to eat. For they supposed that the people should be hungry, fainty, and thirsty in the wilderness.

2 Samuel 18:1-33
1. And the king numbered the people that were with him, and set captains of thousands and of hundreds over them.
2. And he sent one part of them with Joab, and another part with Abisai the son of Zaruiah Joab's brother, and the third part with Ethai the Gethite. And the king said unto the people: shall I go with you?
3. And the people answered: nay, for if we flee, our adversaries will not care for us: neither though half of us were slain, shall they regard us. But thou were worth ten thousand of us. And therefore it is better that thou be ready to succour us out of the city.
4. Then said the king: what seemeth you best, that will I do. And the king stood up by the Gate's side, and all the people came out by hundreds and by thousands.
5. And the king commanded Joab, Abisai, and Ethai saying: intreat me Jently my son Absalom. And all the people heard when the king gave all the captains charge over Absalom.
6. And the people went out into the field against Israel, and the battle was in the wood of Ephraim.
7. Where the people of Israel were put to the worse before the servants of David, and there was a great slaughter that day, even of twenty thousand men.
8. And the field was fought in divers places, all abroad upon the earth. And the woods devoured more people that day than did the sword.
9. And it chanced Absalom to come before the servants of David riding upon a Mule which carried him under the thick boughs of a great Oak. And his head caught in the Oak, and he was left between heaven and earth, and the Mule that was under him went his way.
10. And one that saw it told Joab saying: behold, I saw Absalom hang in an Oak:
11. and Joab said unto him that told him: lo, sawest thou him? And why didst thou not there smite him to the ground, that I should have given thee ten sicles of silver and a soldier's girdle.
12. And the man answered Joab: though I had a thousand sicles of silver told in my hand yet would I not stretch out mine hand against the king's son. For we heard with our ears when the king charged thee, Abisai and Ethai, saying: spare me the lad Absalom.
13. Moreover though I had jeoparded my life and done falsely thereto, yet could nought of all the matter have been hid from the king: yea and thou thyself wouldest be against me.
14. Then said Joab I may not stand tarrying with thee. And therewith he took three spears in his hand and thrust them into the heart of Absalom, while he was yet alive on the body of the tree.
15. And ten servants that bare Joab's weapons, turned and smote Absalom and slew him.
16. Then Joab blew a trumpet, and the people returned from following Israel: for Joab spared the people.
17. And they took Absalom and cast him into a great pit that was in the wood, and cast a mighty great heap of stones upon him. And all Israel fled every man to his tent.
18. And this Absalom yet in his lifetime, took and reared up a pillar, which is yet in king's dale. For he said: I have no male child. And therefore to keep my name in remembrance do I it. And he called the pillar after his own name. And it is called unto this day, Absalom's pillar.
19. Then said Ahimaaz the son of Sadock: let me run I pray thee, and bear the king tidings, how that the LORD hath judged him quite of the hands of all his enemies.
20. And Joab said unto him: thou art no man to bear tidings today: thou shalt bear tidings another time: but today thou shalt bear none, because the king's son is dead.
21. Then said Joab to Chusi: go and tell the king what thou hast seen. And Chusi bowed himself unto Joab and ran.
22. Then said Ahimaaz the son of Sadock again to Joab: come what come will, let me run I pray thee after Chusi. And Joab said: wherefore shouldest thou run my son? for and thou run thou gettest no reward: well come what will let me run.
23. And he said unto him: run. Then Ahimaaz ran by the plain and overran Chusi.
24. And David sat between the two gates. And the watchman went up to the roof over the gate unto the wall, and lifted up his eyes and saw: and behold, there came a man running alone.
25. And the watchman called and told the king. And the king said: if he come alone, there is tidings in his mouth. And he came and drew nigh.
26. And the watchman saw another man running, and called unto the porter and said: behold there cometh another running alone. And the king answered: he is also a tidings bringer.
27. And the watchman said: me thinketh the running of the foremost is like the running of Ahimaaz the son of Sadock. And the king said: he is a good man and cometh with good tidings.
28. And Ahimaaz called and said to the king: good tidings, and bowed himself to the earth upon his face before the king and said: blessed be the LORD thy God which hath shut up all the men that lifted up their hands against my Lord(Lorde) the king.
29. And the king said: is the lad Absalom safe? And Ahimaaz answered I saw a great ado, when the king's servant Joab sent me thy servant. But I wot not what it was.
30. And the king said: turn and stand here. And he turned and stood.
31. And behold Chusi came and said: tidings my lord the king, the LORD hath quite thee this day out of the hands of all that rose against thee.
32. And the king said to Chusi: is the lad Absalom safe? And Chusi answered: the enemies of my lord the king and all that rise against thee, to have thee, be as thy lad is.
33. And the king was moved and went up to a chamber over the gate and wept. And as he went thus he said: my son Absalom, my son, my son, my son Absalom, would to God I had died for thee Absalom, my son, my son.

Psalms 66:16-20
16. O come hither and harken, all ye that fear God, I will tell you, what he hath done for my soul.
17. I called unto him with my mouth, and gave him praises with my tongue.
18. If I incline unto wickedness with my heart, the Lord(LORDE) will not hear me.
19. Therefore God hath heard me, and considered the voice of my prayer.
20. Praised be God, which hath not cast out my prayer, nor turned his mercy from me.

Proverbs 16:31-32
31. Age is a crown of worship, if it be found in the way of righteousness.
32. A patient man is better than one (that is) strong: and he that can rule himself, is more worth than he that winneth a city.

John 7:28-53
28. Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught saying: And me ye know, and whence I am ye know: and (yet) I am not come of myself. But he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.
29. I know him: (And if I say that I know him not, I shall be a lier like unto you, but I know him) For I am of him, and he hath sent me.
30. Then sought the jews(they) to take him, but no man laid hands on him, because his time was not yet come.
31. Many of the people believed on him, and said: When Christ cometh: Will he do more miracles than this man hath done?
32. The pharisees heard that the people murmured such things about him: and(Wherefore) the pharisees and scribes(hye priests) sent ministers(servants) forth to take him.
33. Then said Jesus unto them: Yet am I a little while with you, and then go I unto him that sent me.
34. Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: And where I am, thither can ye not come.
35. Then said the jews between themselves: Whither will he go? that we shall not find him. Will he go among the gentiles, which are scattered all abroad, and teach the gentiles?
36. What manner of saying is this that he said: ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: And where I am, thither can ye not come?
37. In the last day, that great day of the feast: Jesus stood and cried saying: If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink.
38. Whosoever(He that) believeth on me, as sayeth the scripture, out of his belly shall flow rivers of water of life.
39. This spake he of the spirit, which they that believed on him should receive. For the holy ghost was not yet there, because that Jesus was not yet glorified.
40. Many of the people, when they heard this saying said: This is, no doubt,(of a truth) a Prophet.
41. Other said: this is Christ. Some said: shall Christ come out of Galilee?
42. Saith not the scripture that Christ shall come of the seed of David: and out of the town of Bethlehem where David was?
43. So was there dissension among the people for his sake.(about him.)
44. And some of them would have taken him: but no man laid hands on him.
45. Then came the ministers(servants) to the high priests, and pharisees. And they said unto them: why have ye not brought him?
46. The servants answered: never man spake as this man speaketh.(doeth.)
47. Then answered them the pharisees: are ye also deceived?
48. Doth any of the rulers, or of the pharisees believe on him?
49. But the common people which know not the law are accursed.
50. Nicodemus said unto them (He that came to Jesus by night which(and) was one of them.)
51. Doth our law judge any man, before it be heard,(hear him) and known, what he hath done?
52. They answered, and said unto him: Art thou also of Galilee? Search and look, for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
53. And every man went unto his own house.
