Exodus 1:1-22
1. And these [are] the names of the sons of Israel who are coming into Egypt with Jacob; a man and his household have they come;
2. Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,
3. Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,
4. Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
5. And all the persons coming out of the thigh of Jacob are seventy persons; as to Joseph, he was in Egypt.
6. And Joseph dieth, and all his brethren, and all that generation;
7. and the sons of Israel have been fruitful, and they teem, and multiply, and are very very mighty, and the land is filled with them.
8. And there riseth a new king over Egypt, who hath not known Joseph,
9. and he saith unto his people, `Lo, the people of the sons of Israel [is] more numerous and mighty than we;
10. give help! let us act wisely concerning it, lest it multiply, and it hath come to pass, when war happeneth, that it hath been joined, even it, unto those hating us, and hath fought against us, and hath gone out up of the land.`
11. And they set over it princes of tribute, so as to afflict it with their burdens, and it buildeth store-cities for Pharaoh, Pithom and Raamses;
12. and as they afflict it, so it multiplieth, and so it breaketh forth, and they are vexed because of the sons of Israel;
13. and the Egyptians cause the sons of Israel to serve with rigour,
14. and make their lives bitter in hard service, in clay, and in brick, and in every [kind] of service in the field; all their service in which they have served [is] with rigour.
15. And the king of Egypt speaketh to the midwives, the Hebrewesses, (of whom the name of the one [is] Shiphrah, and the name of the second Puah),
16. and saith, `When ye cause the Hebrew women to bear, and have looked on the children; if it [is] a son -- then ye have put him to death; and if it [is] a daughter -- then she hath lived.`
17. And the midwives fear God, and have not done as the king of Egypt hath spoken unto them, and keep the lads alive;
18. and the king of Egypt calleth for the midwives, and saith to them, `Wherefore have ye done this thing, and keep the lads alive?`
19. And the midwives say unto Pharaoh, `Because the Hebrew women [are] not as the Egyptian women, for they [are] lively; before the midwife cometh in unto them -- they have borne!`
20. And God doth good to the midwives, and the people multiply, and are very mighty;
21. and it cometh to pass, because the midwives have feared God, that He maketh for them households;
22. and Pharaoh layeth a charge on all his people, saying, `Every son who is born -- into the River ye do cast him, and every daughter ye do keep alive.`

Exodus 2:1-25
1. And there goeth a man of the house of Levi, and he taketh the daughter of Levi,
2. and the woman conceiveth, and beareth a son, and she seeth him that he [is] fair, and she hideth him three months,
3. and she hath not been able any more to hide him, and she taketh for him an ark of rushes, and daubeth it with bitumen and with pitch, and putteth the lad in it, and putteth [it] in the weeds by the edge of the River;
4. and his sister stationeth herself afar off, to know what is done to him.
5. And a daughter of Pharaoh cometh down to bathe at the River, and her damsels are walking by the side of the River, and she seeth the ark in the midst of the weeds, and sendeth her handmaid, and she taketh it,
6. and openeth, and seeth him -- the lad, and lo, a child weeping! and she hath pity on him, and saith, `This is [one] of the Hebrews` children.`
7. And his sister saith unto the daughter of Pharaoh, `Do I go? when I have called for thee a suckling woman of the Hebrews, then she doth suckle the lad for thee;`
8. and the daughter of Pharaoh saith to her, `Go;` and the virgin goeth, and calleth the mother of the lad,
9. and the daughter of Pharaoh saith to her, `Take this lad away, and suckle him for me, and I -- I give thy hire;` and the woman taketh the lad, and suckleth him.
10. And the lad groweth, and she bringeth him in to the daughter of Pharaoh, and he is to her for a son, and she calleth his name Moses, and saith, `Because -- from the water I have drawn him.`
11. And it cometh to pass, in those days, that Moses is grown, and he goeth out unto his brethren, and looketh on their burdens, and seeth a man, an Egyptian, smiting a man, a Hebrew, [one] of his brethren,
12. and he turneth hither and thither, and seeth that there is no man, and smiteth the Egyptian, and hideth him in the sand.
13. And he goeth out on the second day, and lo, two men, Hebrews, striving! and he saith to the wrong-doer, `Why dost thou smite thy neighbour?`
14. and he saith, `Who set thee for a head and a judge over us? to slay me art thou saying [it], as thou hast slain the Egyptian?` and Moses feareth, and saith, `Surely the thing hath been known.`
15. And Pharaoh heareth of this thing, and seeketh to slay Moses, and Moses fleeth from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelleth in the land of Midian, and dwelleth by the well.
16. And to a priest of Midian [are] seven daughters, and they come and draw, and fill the troughs, to water the flock of their father,
17. and the shepherds come and drive them away, and Moses ariseth, and saveth them, and watereth their flock.
18. And they come in to Reuel their father, and he saith, `Wherefore have ye hastened to come in to-day?`
19. and they say, `A man, an Egyptian, hath delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also hath diligently drawn for us, and watereth the flock;`
20. and he saith unto his daughters, `And where [is] he? why [is] this? -- ye left the man! call for him, and he doth eat bread.`
21. And Moses is willing to dwell with the man, and he giveth Zipporah his daughter to Moses,
22. and she beareth a son, and he calleth his name Gershom, for he said, `A sojourner I have been in a strange land.`
23. And it cometh to pass during these many days, that the king of Egypt dieth, and the sons of Israel sigh because of the service, and cry, and their cry goeth up unto God, because of the service;
24. and God heareth their groaning, and God remembereth His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob;
25. and God seeth the sons of Israel, and God knoweth.

Psalms 15:1-5
1. A Psalm of David. Jehovah, who doth sojourn in Thy tent? Who doth dwell in Thy holy hill?
2. He who is walking uprightly, And working righteousness, And speaking truth in his heart.
3. He hath not slandered by his tongue, He hath not done to his friend evil; And reproach he hath not lifted up Against his neighbour.
4. Despised in his eyes [is] a rejected one, And those fearing Jehovah he doth honour. He hath sworn to suffer evil, and changeth not;
5. His silver he hath not given in usury, And a bribe against the innocent Hath not taken; Whoso is doing these is not moved to the age!

Proverbs 4:25-27
25. Thine eyes do look straightforward, And thine eyelids look straight before thee.
26. Ponder thou the path of thy feet, And all thy ways [are] established.
27. Incline not [to] the right or to the left, Turn aside thy foot from evil!

Matthew 17:1-27
1. And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, and James, and John his brother, and doth bring them up to a high mount by themselves,
2. and he was transfigured before them, and his face shone as the sun, and his garments did become white as the light,
3. and lo, appear to them did Moses and Elijah, talking together with him.
4. And Peter answering said to Jesus, `Sir, it is good to us to be here; if thou wilt, we may make here three booths -- for thee one, and for Moses one, and one for Elijah.`
5. While he is yet speaking, lo, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and lo, a voice out of the cloud, saying, `This is My Son, -- the Beloved, in whom I did delight; hear him.`
6. And the disciples having heard, did fall upon their face, and were exceedingly afraid,
7. and Jesus having come near, touched them, and said, `Rise, be not afraid,`
8. and having lifted up their eyes, they saw no one, except Jesus only.
9. And as they are coming down from the mount, Jesus charged them, saying, `Say to no one the vision, till the Son of Man out of the dead may rise.`
10. And his disciples questioned him, saying, `Why then do the scribes say that Elijah it behoveth to come first?`
11. And Jesus answering said to them, `Elijah doth indeed come first, and shall restore all things,
12. and I say to you -- Elijah did already come, and they did not know him, but did with him whatever they would, so also the Son of Man is about to suffer by them.`
13. Then understood the disciples that concerning John the Baptist he spake to them.
14. And when they came unto the multitude, there came to him a man, kneeling down to him,
15. and saying, `Sir, deal kindly with my son, for he is lunatic, and doth suffer miserably, for often he doth fall into the fire, and often into the water,
16. and I brought him near to thy disciples, and they were not able to heal him.`
17. And Jesus answering said, `O generation, unstedfast and perverse, till when shall I be with you? till when shall I bear you? bring him to me hither;`
18. and Jesus rebuked him, and the demon went out of him, and the lad was healed from that hour.
19. Then the disciples having come to Jesus by himself, said, `Wherefore were we not able to cast him out?`
20. And Jesus said to them, `Through your want of faith; for verily I say to you, if ye may have faith as a grain of mustard, ye shall say to this mount, Remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove, and nothing shall be impossible to you,
21. and this kind doth not go forth except in prayer and fasting.`
22. And while they are living in Galilee, Jesus said to them, `The Son of Man is about to be delivered up to the hands of men,
23. and they shall kill him, and the third day he shall rise,` and they were exceeding sorry.
24. And they having come to Capernaum, those receiving the didrachms came near to Peter, and said, `Your teacher -- doth he not pay the didrachms?` He saith, `Yes.`
25. And when he came into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, `What thinkest thou, Simon? the kings of the earth -- from whom do they receive custom or poll-tax? from their sons or from the strangers?`
26. Peter saith to him, `From the strangers.` Jesus said to him, `Then are the sons free;
27. but, that we may not cause them to stumble, having gone to the sea, cast a hook, and the fish that hath come up first take thou up, and having opened its mouth, thou shalt find a stater, that having taken, give to them for me and thee.`
