1 Kings 9:1-28
1. And when Salomon had finished the building of the house of the LORD and of the king's palace, and of all that his desire and lust was to make:
2. the LORD appeared unto him again, as he appeared to him at Gabaon.
3. And the LORD said unto him: I have heard thy prayer and intercession that thou madest before me, and have hallowed this house which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
4. And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in pureness of heart and plainness, to do all that I have commanded thee, and shalt keep mine ordinances and customs:
5. then I will stablish the seat of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father saying: Thou shalt not be without one or other upon the seat of Israel.
6. But and if ye and your children shall turn away from after me, and shall not keep mine ordinances which I have set before you, but shall go and serve other gods and bow yourselves unto them:
7. then I will weed Israel out of the land which I have given them. And this house which I have hallowed for my name, I will put out of my sight. And Israel shall be a proverb and a fable unto all nations.
8. And this house which is so high, all that pass by it shall be astonied and shall hiss and say: why hath the LORD dealt on this manner with this land and with this house?
9. And it shall be answered then, because they forsook the LORD their God which brought their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods and have stooped unto him and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.
10. Then at the end of twenty year in which Salomon had built the two houses, that is to wete, the house of the LORD and the king's palace:
11. because Hiram the king of Tyre had supported him with Cedar, fir and gold, as much as he desired: therefore Salomon gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee.
12. And when Hiram was come from Tyre to see the cities which Salomon had given him, they pleased him not.
13. Wherefore he said: what cities are these which thou hast given me, my brother? and he called them the land of Cabull unto this day.
14. This Hiram had sent the king six score hundredweight of gold.
15. And this is the sum of the tribute, which king Salomon raised to build the house of the LORD and his own house, and Mello and the walls of Jerusalem, and Hezer, and Magedo, and Gazer.
16. For Pharao king of Egypt went up and took Gazer and burnt it with fire, and slew the Cananites that dwelt in the city, and gave it for a present unto his daughter that was Salomon's wife.
17. And Salomon built Gazer and Beth Horon the nether:
18. and Baalath and Thamar in the wilderness that is in the land:
19. and all the store cities that Salomon had, and cities for his chariots, and cities for his horsemen and all that his lust was to build in Jerusalem and Libanon and in all the land of his kingdom.
20. And all the people that were left of the Amorites, Hethites, Pherethites, Hevites and Jebusites, which were not of the children of Israel,
21. the children of the said nations that were left in the land, because the children of Israel were not able to destroy them, did Salomon make tributaries unto this day.
22. And of the children of Israel did Salomon make no bondmen. But they were men of war and his servants and his lords and Captains and rulers of his chariots and of his Horsemen.
23. And these many lords that oversaw the work had Salomon, five hundredth and fifty, which ruled the people that wrought in the work.
24. And Pharao's daughter came up out of the city of David unto the house which Salomon had built for her. And after that he built Mello.
25. And thrice a year did Salomon offer burntofferings and peaceofferings upon the altar which he had built unto the LORD, to burn the fat thereon: which altar is before the LORD. And when king Salomon had made the house perfect,
26. he made ships in Azion Gaber which is beside Eloth, on the brink of the red sea, in the land of Edom.
27. And Hiram sent by ship also of his servants, that were shipmen and expert in the sea, with the servants of Salomon.
28. And they went to Ophir and fetched from thence gold, to the sum of four hundredth and twenty two talents, and brought it to Salomon.

1 Kings 10:1-29
1. And the queen of Saba heard of the wisdom of Salomon concerning the name of the LORD, and came to prove him with riddles.
2. And she came to Jerusalem with a mighty great multitude of Camels that bare sweet odours and gold exceeding much, and precious stones. And when she was come to Salomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.
3. And Salomon expounded her all her questions, that there was not one thing hid from the king which he expounded her not.
4. And when the queen of Saba had seen all Salomon's wisdom and the house that he had built,
5. and the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the standing of his servitors and their apparel, and his butlers and his sacrifice that he offered in the house of the LORD, she was astonied.
6. Then she said to the king: the word I heard in mine own land of thy deeds and wisdom, is true.
7. How be it I believed it not, till I came and saw it with mine eyes. And see, the one half was not told me: for thy wisdom and goodness exceedeth the fame which I heard.
8. Happy are thy men: and happy are these thy servants, which stand ever before thee and hear thy wisdom.
9. And blessed be the LORD thy God which had a lust to thee, to set thee on the seat of Israel, because the LORD loved Israel for ever, and therefore made thee king, to do equity and righteousness.
10. And she gave the king an hundredth and twenty talents of gold, and of sweet odours exceeding much, and precious stones. There came never after such abundance of sweet odors as the Queen of Saba gave to king Salomon.
11. And thereto the ships of Hiram that brought gold from Ophir, brought from Ophir great plenty of Almuge trees and precious stones.
12. And king Salomon made of the Almuge trees pillars in the house of the LORD in the king's palace, and made harps and psalteries for singers. There came no more Almuge trees so, nor was any more seen unto this day.
13. And king Salomon gave unto the Queen of Saba all her desire that she asked of him: besides that he gave her with his own hand. And so she returned unto her own country with her servants.
14. The weight of gold that came to Salomon in one year, was six hundredth three score and six talents of gold,
15. besides that he had of chapmen and merchants of Poticaries and of all the kings of Araby and of the lords of the country.
16. And king Salomon made two hundredth bucklers of beaten gold, six hundredth sicles of gold went to a buckler.
17. And he made three hundredth shields of beaten gold, three pounds of gold going to a piece, and put them in the house of the wood of Libanon.
18. And the king made a great seat of Ivory and covered it with precious gold.
19. And the seat had six steps. And the top of the seat was round behind his back with pommels on either side on the place where he sat, and two Lions standing beside the pommels.
20. And there stood twelve lions on the steps, six on a side. There was none like seen in any kingdom.
21. And all king Salomon's drinking vessels were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the wood of Libanon were of pure gold. And as for silver it was nothing worth in the days of Salomon.
22. For the sea ships which the king had in the sea, with the ships of Hiram, came every third years laden with gold, silver, Ivory, apes and peacocks.
23. And so king Salomon exceeded all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom.
24. And all the world resorted to Salomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.
25. And brought him every man his present, vessels of silver and of gold, and of raiment, harness, sweet odours, horses and Mules, year by year.
26. And Salomon gathered together chariots and horsemen: so that he had a thousand and four hundredth chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, which he bestowed in the chariot cities and with the king at Jerusalem.
27. And the king made silver in Jerusalem as plenteous as stones, and Cedar as plenteous as mulberry trees that grow in the valleys.
28. And Salomon's horses came out of Egypt from Keva: the merchants fetched them from Keva at a price.
29. A chariot came out of Egypt for six hundredth sicles of silver, and an horse for an hundredth and fifty. And even so by the hands of the said merchants, horses were brought out for all the kings of the Hethites and for the kings of Syria.

Psalms 69:1-4
1. To the chanter upon Sosanim of David. Help me, O God, for the waters are come in, even unto my soul.
2. I stick fast in the deep mire, where no ground is, I am come into deep waters, and the floods will drown me.
3. I am weary of crying, my throat is dry, my sight faileth me, for waiting so long upon my God.
4. They that hate me without a cause, are more than the hairs of my head, they that are mine enemies and would destroy me guiltless are mighty: I am fain to pay the things that I never took.

Proverbs 17:18-19
18. Who so promiseth by the hand, and is surety for another, he is a fool.
19. He that loveth strife, delighteth in sin: and who so setteth his door too high,(to hye) seeketh after a fall.

John 11:30-57
30. Jesus was not yet come into the town: but was in the place where Martha met him.
31. The jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her (when they saw Mary that she rose up hastily, and went out) followed her saying: She goeth unto the grave, to weep there.
32. Then when Mary was come, where Jesus was and saw him she fell down at his feet, saying unto him: Lord if thou hadst been here, my brother had not been dead.
33. When Jesus saw her weep, and the jews also weep, which came with her. He groaned in the spirit, and vexed(was troubled in) himself
34. and said: Where have ye laid him? They said unto him: Lord come and see.
35. And Jesus wept.
36. Then said the jews: Behold how he loved him.
37. (And) Some of them said: Could not he which opened the eyes of the blind, have made also, that this man should not have died?
38. Jesus again groaned in himself (and) came to the grave, it was a cave, and a stone laid on it.
39. (And) Jesus said: Take ye away the stone. Martha (the sister of him that was dead) said unto him: Lord by this time he stinketh. For he hath been dead four days.
40. Jesus said unto her: Said I not unto thee, that if thou didst believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God.
41. Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. (And) Jesus lift up his eyes and said: Father I give thee thanks(thank thee) because that thou hast heard me;
42. I knew well(wot) that thou hearest me always:(all ways:) but because of the people that stand by I said it, that they might(may) believe, that thou hast sent me.
43. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus come forth,
44. and he that was dead, came forth bound hand and foot, with (grave) bonds after the manner as they were wont to bind their dead withall. And his face was bound with a napkin. Jesus said unto them: loose him, and let him go.
45. Then many of the jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.
46. But some of them went their ways to the pharisees, and told them what Jesus had done.
47. Then gathered the high priests and the pharisees a council and said: what do we? This man doeth many miracles.(tokens)
48. If we let him scape thus all men will believe on him. And the romans shall come and take away our country and (the) people.
49. And one of them named Caiphas: which was the high priest that same year, said unto them: Ye perceive nothing at all
50. nor yet consider that it is expedient for us, that one man die for the people, and not that all the people perish.
51. This spake he not of himself: but being high priest that same year, prophesied he that Jesus should die for the people,
52. and not for the people only: but that he should gather together in one the children of God which were scattered abroad.
53. From that day kept(forth) they (held) a counsel together for to put him to death.
54. Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the jews: but went his way thence unto a country nigh to a wilderness into a city called Ephraim, and there haunted with his disciples.
55. (And) The jews' ester was nigh at hand, and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the ester to purify themselves.
56. Then sought they for Jesus, and spake between themselves as they stood in the temple: What think ye, seeing he cometh not to the feast.
57. The high priests and pharisees had given a commandment that if any man knew where he were, he should shew it that they might take him.
