Nehemiah 8:1-18
1. Now when the seventh month drew nigh, and the children of Israel were in their cities, all the people gathered themselves together as one man upon the street before the Watergate, and said unto Esdras the scribe, that he should fetch the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD commanded to Israel.
2. And Esdras the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and of all that could understand it, upon the first day of the seventh month.
3. And read therein in the street that is before the Watergate, from the (light) morning until the noon day before men and women, and such as could understand it: and the ears of all the people were inclined unto the book of the law.
4. And Esdras the scribe stood upon an high pulpit of wood, which they had made for the preaching, and beside him stood Mathathiah, Sema, Ananiah, Uriah, Helkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand: and on his left hand stood Phadaiah, Misael, Melchiah, Hasum, Hasebadanah, Zachary, and Mosolam.
5. And Esdras opened the book before all the people, for he stood above all the people. And when he opened it, all the people stood up.
6. And Esdras praised the LORD the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with their hands up, and bowed themselves, and worshipped the LORD with their faces to the ground.
7. And Jesua, and Baani, and Serabiah, Jami, Acuba, Sebathai, Hodaiah, Maasiah, Celita, Azariah, Jozabed, Hanan, Phalaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to give heed unto the law, and the people stood in their place.
8. And they read in the book of the law of God distinctly and plainly, so that men understood the thing that was read.
9. And Nehemiah (which is Harthirsatha) and Esdras the priest and scribe, and the Levites that caused the people to take heed, said unto all the people: this day is holy unto the LORD your God: be not ye sorry therefore, and weep not. For all the people wept when they heard the words of the law.
10. Therefore said he unto them: Go your way, and eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send part unto them also that have not prepared themselves: for this day is holy unto our Lord:(LORDE) be not ye sorry therefore: for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
11. And the Levites stilled all the people, and said: hold your peace, for the day is holy, vex not ye yourselves.
12. And all the people went their way to eat and to drink, and to send part unto other, and to make great mirth, because(for) they had understood the words that were declared unto them.
13. And on the next day were gathered together the chief fathers among all the people and the priests and Levites, unto Esdras the scribe, that he should teach them the words of the law.
14. And they found written in the law, how that the LORD had commanded by Moses that the children of Israel should dwell in booths in the feast of the seventh month.
15. And so they caused it be declared and proclaimed in all their cities, and at Jerusalem, saying: go up unto the mount and fetch Olive branches, and Pine branches, Myrtle branches, Palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written.
16. And the people went up, and fetched them, and made them booths, every one upon the roof of his house, and in their courts, and in the courts of the house of God, and in the street by the Watergate, and in the street by port Ephraim.
17. And all the congregation of them that were come again out of the captivity, made booths, and dwelt therein. For since the time of Jesua the son of Nun unto this day, had not the children of Israel done so, and there was very great gladness.
18. And every day from the first day unto the last, read he in the book of the law of God. And seven days held they the feast, and on the eighth day the gathering together, according unto the manner.

Nehemiah 9:1-38
1. In the four and twenty(twentieth) day of this month came the children of Israel together with fasting, and sackclothes, and earth upon them,
2. and separated the seed of Israel from all the strange children and stood and knowledged their sins, and the wickedness of their fathers,
3. and stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of the LORD their God four times on the day, and they knowledged, and worshipped the LORD their God four times on the day.
4. And the Levites stood on high, namely Jesua, and Bani, Cadmiel, Sabaniah, Buni, Sarebiah, Bani, and Chanani, and cried loud unto the LORD their God.
5. And the Levites, Jeshua, and Cadmiel, Bani, Hasabniah, Serebiah, Hodjah, Sebaniah, and Pathahiah, said: Stand up praise the LORD your God forever: and let thanks be given unto the name of thy glory, which exceedeth all thanksgiving and praise.
6. LORD, (thou art) thou alone hast made heaven, and the heaven of all heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is therein, the sea and all that is therein: thou givest life unto all, and the host of heaven bow themselves unto thee.
7. Thou art, the LORD, the God that hast chosen Abram, and broughtest him out of Ur in Chaldea, and called him Abraham
8. and foundest his heart faithful before thee, and madest a covenant with him to give unto his seed the land of the Cananites, Hethites, Amorites, Pheresites, Jebusites, and Gergasites, and hast made good thy words: for thou art righteous
9. and hast considered the misery of our fathers in Egypt, and heard their complaint by the reed sea,(See)
10. and shewed tokens and wonders upon Pharaoh, and on all his servants, and on all the people of his land: for thou knewest that they were presumptuous and cruel against them; and so madest thou thee a name as it is this day.
11. And the reed sea(See) didst thou divide(partedst thou) in sunder before them, so that they went thorow the midst(myddes) of the sea dry shoed: and their persecutors threwest thou into the deep as a stone, in the mighty waters,
12. and leddest them on the day time in a cloudy pillar; and on the night season in a pillar of fire, to shew them light in the way that they went.
13. Thou camest down also upon mount Sinai, and spakest unto them from heaven, and gavest them right judgments, true laws, good commandments and statutes,
14. and declared unto them thy holy Sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, ordinances, and laws, by Moses thy servant:
15. and gavest them bread from heaven when they were hungry, and broughtest forth water for them out of the rock when they were thirsty: and promised them, that they should go in, and take possession of the land, over which(where over) thou hadst lift up thine hand for to give them.
16. But(Nevertheless) our fathers were proud, and hardnecked, so that they followed not thy commandments,
17. and refused to hear, and were not mindful of the wonders that thou didst(diddest) for them: but became obstinate and heady in so much that they turned back to their bondage in their disobedience. But thou my God forgavest, and wast gracious, merciful, patient, and of great goodness, and forsookest them not.
18. And though they made a molten calf, (and said: This is thy God, that brought thee out of the land of Egypt) and did great blasphemies,
19. yet forsookest thou them not in the wilderness, according to thy great mercy. And the cloudy pillar departed not from them on the day time to lead them the way, neither the pillar of fire in the night season, to shew them light in the way that they went.
20. And thou gavest them thy good spirit to enform them, and withheldest not thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water when they were thirsty.
21. Forty years long madest thou provision for them in the wilderness, so that they lacked(wanted) nothing: their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not.
22. And thou gavest them kingdoms and nations, and partest them according to their portions, so that they possessed the land of Sehon king of Hesebon, and the land of Og the king of Basan.
23. And their children multipliedst thou as the stars of heaven, and broughtest them into the land whereof thou hadst spoken unto their fathers, that they should go in to it, and have it in possession.
24. And the children went in, and possessed the land, and thou subduedest before them the inhabiters of the land, even the Cananites, and gavest them into their hand, and their kings and the people of the land, that they might do with them what they would.
25. And they won(wanne) their strong cities, and a fat land, and took possession of houses that were full of all manner goods, wells digged out, vineyards, olivegardens, and many fruitful trees: and they ate and were filled, and became fat, and lived in wealth thorow thy great goodness.
26. Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee, and cast thy law behind their backs, and slew thy prophets, which exhorted them so earnestly, that they should convert unto thee, and did great blasphemies.
27. Therefore gavest thou them over in to the hand of their enemies that vexed them. And in the time of their trouble they cried unto thee, and thou hardest them from heaven and thorow thy great mercy thou gavest them saviours, which helped them out of the hand of their enemies.
28. But when they came to rest, they turned back again to do evil before thee: therefore leftest thou them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them. So they converted, and cried unto thee, and thou heardest them from heaven; and many time hast thou delivered them according to thy great mercy,
29. and testified unto them, that they should turn again unto thy law. Notwithstanding they were proud, and hearkened not unto thy commandments, but sinned in thy laws, (which a man should do and live in them) and turned the shoulder away, and were stiffnecked, and would not hear.
30. And many years didst thou forbear them, and testified unto them thorow thy spirit, even by the office of thy prophets, and yet would they not hear. Therefore gavest thou them into the hand of the nations in the lands.
31. But for thy great mercies' sake thou hast not utterly consumed them, neither forsaken them: for thou art a gracious and merciful God.
32. Now our God, thou great God, mighty and terrible, thou that keepest covenant and mercy, regard not a little all the travail that hath happened unto us, and our kings, princes, priests, prophets, fathers and all thy people, since the time of the kings of Assur unto this day.
33. Thou art righteous in all that thou hast brought upon us: for thou hast done right.
34. As for us, we have been ungodly, and our kings, princes, priests, and fathers have not done after thy law, nor regarded thy commandments, and thy earnest exhortations wherewith thou hast exhorted them,
35. and have not served thee in their kingdom, and in thy great goods that thou gavest them, and in the large and plenteous land which thou gavest them, (to good) and have not converted from their wicked works.
36. Behold, therefore are we in bondage this day: yea even in the land that thou gavest unto our fathers, to enjoy the fruits and goods thereof, behold, there are we bondsmen.
37. And great is the increase of it unto the kings, whom thou hast set over us because of our sins, and they have dominion over our bodies, and cattle, and we are in great trouble.
38. And in all this make we a sure covenant, and write it, and let our princes, Levites, and priests seal it.

Psalms 89:11-18
11. The heavens are thine, the earth is thine: thou hast laid the foundation of the round world and all that therein is.
12. Thou hast made the north and the south, Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.
13. Thou hast a mighty arm, strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.
14. Righteousness and equity is the habitation of thy seat, mercy and truth go before thy face.
15. Blessed is the people, O LORD, that can rejoice in thee, and walketh in the light of thy countenance.
16. Their delight is in thy name all the day long, and thorow thy righteousness they shall be exalted.
17. For thou art the glory of their strength, and thorow thy favour shalt thou lift up our horns.
18. The LORD is our defence, and the holy one of Israel is our king.

Proverbs 21:29-31
29. A ungodly man goeth forth rashly, but the just reformeth his own way.
30. There is no wisdom, there is no understanding, there is no counsel against the LORD.
31. The horse is prepared against the day of battle, but the LORD giveth the victory.

Acts 27:27-44
27. But when the fourteenth night was come as we were carried in Adria, about midnight the shipmen deemed that there appeared some country unto them,
28. and they sounded, and found it twenty fathoms; (And when) they went(had gone) a little further and(they) sounded again, and found fifteen fathoms.
29. Then fearing lest they should have fallen on some Rocke, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day.
30. As the shipmen were about to flee out of the ship, and had let down the boat into the sea, under a colour as though they would have cast anchors out of the foreship:
31. Paul said unto the under-captain and the soldiers: except these abide in the ship ye cannot be safe.
32. Then the soldiers cut off the rope of the boat, and let it fall away.
33. And in the meantime, betwixt that and day, Paul besought them all to take meat, saying: this is the fourteenth day that ye have tarried and continued fasting receiving nothing at all,
34. wherefore I pray you to take meat: for this no doubt is for your health, for there shall not an hair fall from the head of any of you.
35. And when he had thus spoken he took bread and gave thanks to God in presence of(before) them all, and brake it, and began to eat.
36. Then were they all of good cheer, and they also took meat.
37. We were all together in the ship, two hundred and three score and sixteen souls.
38. (And) When they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship and cast out the wheat into the sea.
39. When it was day they knew not the land, but they spied a certain reach(haven) with a bank, into the which they were minded (if it were possible) to thrust in the ship.
40. And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves unto the sea, and loosed(lowsed) the rudder bonds and hoised up the main sail to the wind and drew to(toward) land,
41. but they fell into(chanced on) a place, which had the sea on both the sides, and thrust in the ship. And the fore part stuck fast, and moved not, but the hinder part brake with the violence of the waves.
42. The soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners lest any of them, when he had swum out should flee away:
43. but the under-captain willing to save Paul kept them from their purpose, and commanded that they that could swim should cast themselves first in to the sea, and scape to land.
44. And the other he commanded to go, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they came all safe to land.
