2. `Be assembled, and hear, sons of Jacob, And hearken unto Israel your father.
3. Reuben! my first-born thou, My power, and beginning of my strength, The abundance of exaltation, And the abundance of strength;
4. Unstable as water, thou art not abundant; For thou hast gone up thy father`s bed; Then thou hast polluted: My couch he went up!
5. Simeon and Levi [are] brethren! Instruments of violence -- their espousals!
6. Into their secret, come not, O my soul! Unto their assembly be not united, O mine honour; For in their anger they slew a man, And in their self-will eradicated a prince.
7. Cursed [is] their anger, for [it is] fierce, And their wrath, for [it is] sharp; I divide them in Jacob, And I scatter them in Israel.
8. Judah! thou -- thy brethren praise thee! Thy hand [is] on the neck of thine enemies, Sons of thy father bow themselves to thee.
9. A lion`s whelp [is] Judah, For prey, my son, thou hast gone up; He hath bent, he hath crouched as a lion, And as a lioness; who causeth him to arise?
10. The sceptre turneth not aside from Judah, And a lawgiver from between his feet, Till his Seed come; And his [is] the obedience of peoples.
11. Binding to the vine his ass, And to the choice vine the colt of his ass, He hath washed in wine his clothing, And in the blood of grapes his covering;

13. Zebulun at a haven of the seas doth dwell, And he [is] for a haven of ships; And his side [is] unto Zidon.
14. Issacher [is] a strong ass, Crouching between the two folds;
15. And he seeth rest that [it is] good, And the land that [it is] pleasant, And he inclineth his shoulder to bear, And is to tribute a servant.
16. Dan doth judge his people, As one of the tribes of Israel;
17. Dan is a serpent by the way, An adder by the path, Which is biting the horse`s heels, And its rider falleth backward.
18. For Thy salvation I have waited, Jehovah!
19. Gad! a troop assaulteth him, But he assaulteth last.
20. Out of Asher his bread [is] fat; And he giveth dainties of a king.
21. Naphtali [is] a hind sent away, Who is giving beauteous young ones.
22. Joseph [is] a fruitful son; A fruitful son by a fountain, Daughters step over the wall;
23. And embitter him -- yea, they have striven, Yea, hate him do archers;
24. And his bow abideth in strength, And strengthened are the arms of his hands By the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob, Whence is a shepherd, a son of Israel.
25. By the God of thy father who helpeth thee, And the Mighty One who blesseth thee, Blessings of the heavens from above, Blessings of the deep lying under, Blessings of breasts and womb; --

31. (there they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah);
32. the purchase of the field and of the cave which [is] in it, [is] from Sons of Heth.`
33. And Jacob finisheth commanding his sons, and gathereth up his feet unto the bed, and expireth, and is gathered unto his people.

Genesis 50:1-26
1. And Joseph falleth on his father`s face, and weepeth over him, and kisseth him;
2. and Joseph commandeth his servants, the physicians, to embalm his father, and the physicians embalm Israel;
3. and they fulfil for him forty days, for so they fulfil the days of the embalmed, and the Egyptians weep for him seventy days.
4. And the days of his weeping pass away, and Joseph speaketh unto the house of Pharaoh, saying, `If, I pray you, I have found grace in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,
5. My father caused me to swear, saying, Lo, I am dying; in my burying-place which I have prepared for myself in the land of Canaan, there dost thou bury me; and now, let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and return;`
6. and Pharaoh saith, `Go up and bury thy father, as he caused thee to swear.`
7. And Joseph goeth up to bury his father, and go up with him do all the servants of Pharaoh, elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt,
8. and all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and the house of his father; only their infants, and their flock, and their herd, have they left in the land of Goshen;
9. and there go up with him both chariot and horsemen, and the camp is very great.
10. And they come unto the threshing-floor of Atad, which [is] beyond the Jordan, and they lament there, a lamentation great and very grievous; and he maketh for his father a mourning seven days,
11. and the inhabitant of the land, the Canaanite, see the mourning in the threshing-floor of Atad, and say, `A grievous mourning [is] this to the Egyptians;` therefore hath [one] called its name `The mourning of the Egyptians,` which [is] beyond the Jordan.
12. And his sons do to him so as he commanded them,
13. and his sons bear him away to the land of Canaan, and bury him in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the field for a possession of a burying-place, from Ephron the Hittite, on the front of Mamre.

17. Thus ye do say to Joseph, I pray thee, bear, I pray thee, with the transgression of thy brethren, and their sin, for they have done thee evil; and now, bear, we pray thee, with the transgression of the servants of the God of thy father;` and Joseph weepeth in their speaking unto him.
18. And his brethren also go and fall before him, and say, `Lo, we [are] to thee for servants.`
19. And Joseph saith unto them, `Fear not, for [am] I in the place of God?
20. As for you, ye devised against me evil -- God devised it for good, in order to do as [at] this day, to keep alive a numerous people;

Psalms 14:1-7
1. To the Overseer. -- By David. A fool hath said in his heart, `God is not;` They have done corruptly, They have done abominable actions, There is not a doer of good.
2. Jehovah from the heavens Hath looked on the sons of men, To see if there is a wise one -- seeking God.
3. The whole have turned aside, Together they have been filthy: There is not a doer of good, not even one.
4. Have all working iniquity not known? Those consuming my people have eaten bread, Jehovah they have not called.

23. Above every charge keep thy heart, For out of it [are] the outgoings of life.

Matthew 16:1-28
1. And the Pharisees and Sadducees having come, tempting, did question him, to shew to them a sign from the heaven,
2. and he answering said to them, `Evening having come, ye say, Fair weather, for the heaven is red,
3. and at morning, Foul weather to-day, for the heaven is red -- gloomy; hypocrites, the face of the heavens indeed ye do know to discern, but the signs of the times ye are not able!
4. `A generation evil and adulterous doth seek a sign, and a sign shall not be given to it, except the sign of Jonah the prophet;` and having left them he went away.
5. And his disciples having come to the other side, forgot to take loaves,
6. and Jesus said to them, `Beware, and take heed of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees;`
7. and they were reasoning in themselves, saying, `Because we took no loaves.`
8. And Jesus having known, said to them, `Why reason ye in yourselves, ye of little faith, because ye took no loaves?
9. do ye not yet understand, nor remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many hand-baskets ye took up?
10. nor the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
11. how do ye not understand that I did not speak to you of bread -- to take heed of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees?`
12. Then they understood that he did not say to take heed of the leaven of the bread, but of the teaching, of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
13. And Jesus, having come to the parts of Cesarea Philippi, was asking his disciples, saying, `Who do men say me to be -- the Son of Man?`
14. and they said, `Some, John the Baptist, and others, Elijah, and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.`
15. He saith to them, `And ye -- who do ye say me to be?`
16. and Simon Peter answering said, `Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.`
17. And Jesus answering said to him, `Happy art thou, Simon Bar-Jona, because flesh and blood did not reveal [it] to thee, but my Father who is in the heavens.
18. `And I also say to thee, that thou art a rock, and upon this rock I will build my assembly, and gates of Hades shall not prevail against it;
19. and I will give to thee the keys of the reign of the heavens, and whatever thou mayest bind upon the earth shall be having been bound in the heavens, and whatever thou mayest loose upon the earth shall be having been loosed in the heavens.`
20. Then did he charge his disciples that they may say to no one that he is Jesus the Christ.
21. From that time began Jesus to shew to his disciples that it is necessary for him to go away to Jerusalem, and to suffer many things from the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and to be put to death, and the third day to rise.
22. And having taken him aside, Peter began to rebuke him, saying, `Be kind to thyself, sir; this shall not be to thee;`
23. and he having turned, said to Peter, `Get thee behind me, adversary! thou art a stumbling-block to me, for thou dost not mind the things of God, but the things of men.`
24. Then said Jesus to his disciples, `If any one doth will to come after me, let him disown himself, and take up his cross, and follow me,
25. for whoever may will to save his life, shall lose it, and whoever may lose his life for my sake shall find it,
26. for what is a man profited if he may gain the whole world, but of his life suffer loss? or what shall a man give as an exchange for his life?
27. `For, the Son of Man is about to come in the glory of his Father, with his messengers, and then he will reward each, according to his work.
28. Verily I say to you, there are certain of those standing here who shall not taste of death till they may see the Son of Man coming in his reign.`
