Ezekiel 33:1-33
1. And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying,
2. `Son of man, speak unto the sons of thy people, and thou hast said unto them: A land -- when I bring in against it a sword, And the people of the land have taken one man out of their borders, And made him to them for a watchman.
3. And he hath seen the sword coming against the land, And hath blown with a trumpet, and hath warned the people,
4. And the hearer hath heard the voice of the trumpet, and he hath not taken warning, And come in doth the sword, and taketh him away, His blood is on his head.
5. The voice of the trumpet he heard, And he hath not taken warning, his blood is on him, And he who took warning his soul hath delivered.
6. And the watchman, when he seeth the sword coming in, And he hath not blown with a trumpet, And the people hath not been warned, And come in doth a sword, And taketh away of them -- a soul, He in his iniquity is taken away, And his blood from the hand of the watchman I require.
7. And thou, son of man, A watchman I gave thee to the house of Israel, And thou hast heard from My mouth a word, And thou hast warned them from Me.
8. In My saying to the wicked, O wicked one -- thou dost surely die, And thou hast not spoken to warn the wicked from his way, He -- the wicked -- in his iniquity doth die, And his blood from thy hand I require.
9. And thou, when thou hast warned the wicked of his way, to turn back from it, And he hath not turned back from his way, He in his iniquity doth die, And thou thy soul hast delivered.
10. And thou, son of man, say unto the house of Israel: Rightly ye have spoken, saying: Surely our transgressions and our sins [are] on us, And in them we are wasting away, How, then, do we live?
11. Say unto them, I live -- an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, I delight not in the death of the wicked, But -- in the turning of the wicked from his way, And he hath lived, Turn back, turn back, from your evil ways, Yea, why do ye die, O house of Israel?
12. And thou, son of man, say unto the sons of thy people: The righteousness of the righteous doth not deliver him in the day of his transgression, And the wickedness of the wicked, He doth not stumble for it in the day of his turning from his wickedness, And the righteous is not able to live in it in the day of his sinning.
13. In My saying of the righteous: He surely liveth, And -- he hath trusted on his righteousness, And he hath done perversity, All his righteous acts are not remembered, And for his perversity that he hath done, For it he doth die.
14. And in My saying to the wicked: Thou surely diest, And -- he hath turned back from his sin, And hath done judgment and righteousness,
15. (The pledge the wicked restoreth, plunder he repayeth,) In the statutes of life he hath walked, So as not to do perversity, He surely liveth -- he doth not die.
16. None of his sin that he hath sinned is remembered to him, Judgment and righteousness he hath done, He doth surely live.
17. And the sons of thy people have said: The way of the Lord is not pondered, As to them -- their way is not pondered.
18. In the turning back of the righteous from his righteousness, And he hath done perversity -- he dieth for it.
19. And in the turning back of the wicked from his wickedness, And he hath done judgment and righteousness, by them he liveth.
20. And ye have said: The way of the Lord is not pondered, Each according to his ways do I judge you, O house of Israel.`
21. And it cometh to pass, in the twelfth year -- in the tenth [month], in the fifth of the month -- of our removal, come in unto me doth one who is escaped from Jerusalem, saying, `The city hath been smitten.`
22. And the hand of Jehovah hath been unto me in the evening, before the coming in of the escaped one, and He openeth my mouth till the coming in unto me in the morning, and opened is my mouth, and I have not been silent again.
23. And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying,
24. `Son of man, the inhabitants of these wastes on the ground of Israel are speaking, saying: Alone hath been Abraham -- and he possesseth the land, and we [are] many -- to us hath the land been given for a possession.
25. Therefore say unto them: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: With the blood ye do eat, And your eyes ye lift up unto your idols, And blood ye shed, and the land ye inherit!
26. Ye have stood on your sword, Ye have done abomination, Each the wife of his neighbour ye have defiled, And the land ye possess!
27. Thus dost thou say unto them: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: I live -- do not they who [are] in the wastes by the sword fall? And they who [are] on the face of the field, To the beast I have given for food, And they who are in strongholds and in caves by pestilence die.
28. And I have made the land a desolation and an astonishment, And ceased hath the excellency of its strength, And desolated have been mountains of Israel, Without any one passing through.
29. And they have known that I [am] Jehovah, In My making the land a desolation and an astonishment, For all their abominations that they have done.
30. And thou, son of man, the sons of thy people who are speaking about thee, By the walls, and in openings of the houses, Have spoken one with another, each with his brother, Saying: Come in, I pray you, And hear what [is] the word that cometh out from Jehovah.
31. And they come in unto thee as the coming in of a people, And they sit before thee -- My people, And have heard thy words, and they do them not, For doting loves with their mouth they are making, After their dishonest gain their heart is going.
32. And lo, thou [art] to them as a singer of doting loves, A pleasant voice, and playing well on an instrument, And they have heard thy words, and they are not doing them.
33. And in its coming in -- lo, it hath come, And they have known that a prophet hath been in their midst!`

Ezekiel 34:1-31
1. And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying,
2. `Son of man, prophesy concerning shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and thou hast said unto them: To the shepherds, thus said the Lord Jehovah: Wo [to] the shepherds of Israel, Who have been feeding themselves! The flock do not the shepherds feed?
3. The fat ye do eat, and the wool ye put on, The fed one ye slaughter, the flock ye feed not.
4. The weak ye have not strengthened, And the sick one ye have not healed, And the broken ye have not bound up, And the driven away have not brought back, And the lost ye have not sought, And with might ye have ruled them and with rigour.
5. And they are scattered from want of a shepherd, And are for food to every beast of the field, Yea, they are scattered.
6. Go astray do My flock on all the mountains, And on every high hill, And on all the face of the land have My flock been scattered, And there is none inquiring, and none seeking.
7. Therefore, shepherds, hear a word of Jehovah:
8. I live -- an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, If not, because of My flock being for a prey, Yea, My flock is for food to every beast of the field, Because there is no shepherd, And My shepherds have not sought My flock, And the shepherds do feed themselves, And My flock they have not fed.
9. Therefore, O shepherds, hear a word of Jehovah:
10. Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Lo, I [am] against the shepherds, And have required My flock from their hand, And caused them to cease from feeding the flock, And no more do the shepherds feed themselves, And I have delivered My flock from their mouth, And they are not to them for food.
11. For thus said the Lord Jehovah: Lo, I -- even I, have required My flock, And I have sought it out.
12. As a shepherd`s searching of his drove, In the day of his being in the midst of his scattered flock, so I do seek My flock, And have delivered them out of all places, Whither they have been scattered, In a day of cloud and thick darkness.
13. And brought them out from the peoples, And have gathered them from the lands, And brought them unto their own ground, And have fed them on mountains of Israel, By streams, and by all dwellings of the land.
14. With good pasture I do feed them, And on mountains of the high place of Israel is their habitation, There do they lie down in a good habitation, And fat pastures they enjoy on mountains of Israel.
15. I feed My flock, and cause them to lie down, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.
16. The lost I seek, and the driven away bring back, And the broken I bind up, and the sick I strengthen, And the fat and the strong I destroy, I feed it with judgment.
17. And you, My flock, thus said the Lord Jehovah: Lo, I am judging between sheep and sheep, Between rams and he-goats.
18. Is it a little thing for you -- the good pasture ye enjoy, And the remnant of your pasture ye tread down with your feet, And a depth of waters ye do drink, And the remainder with your feet ye trample,
19. And My flock the trodden thing of your feet consumeth, And the trampled thing of your feet drinketh?
20. Therefore, thus said the Lord Jehovah to them: Lo, I -- even I, have judged between fat sheep and lean sheep.
21. Because with side and with shoulder ye thrust away, And with your horns push all the diseased, Till ye have scattered them to the out-place,
22. And I have given safety to My flock, And they are not any more for prey, And I have judged between sheep and sheep.
23. And have raised up over them one shepherd, And he hath fed them -- my servant David, He doth feed them, and he is their shepherd,
24. And I, Jehovah, I am their God, And My servant David prince in their midst, I, Jehovah, have spoken.
25. And I have made for them a covenant of peace, And caused evil beasts to cease out of the land, And they have dwelt in a wilderness confidently, And they have slept in forests.
26. And I have given them, and the suburbs of my hill, a blessing, And caused the shower to come down in its season, Showers of blessing they are.
27. And given hath the tree of the field its fruit, And the land doth give her increase, And they have been on their land confident, And they have known that I [am] Jehovah, In My breaking the bands of their yoke, And I have delivered them from the hand of those laying service on them.
28. And they are no more a prey to nations, And the beast of the earth devoureth them not, And they have dwelt confidently, And there is none troubling.
29. And I have raised for them a plant for renown, And they are no more consumed by hunger in the land, And they bear no more the shame of the nations.
30. And they have known that I, Jehovah, their God, [am] with them, And they -- the house of Israel -- My people, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.
31. And ye, My flock, the flock of My pasture, Men ye [are] -- I [am] your God, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah!`

Psalms 130:5-8
5. I hoped [for] Jehovah -- hoped hath my soul, And for His word I have waited.
6. My soul [is] for the Lord, More than those watching for morning, Watching for morning!
7. Israel doth wait on Jehovah, For with Jehovah [is] kindness, And abundant with Him [is] redemption.
8. And He doth redeem Israel from all his iniquities!

Proverbs 29:1-1
1. A man often reproved, hardening the neck, Is suddenly broken, and there is no healing.

James 2:1-26
1. My brethren, hold not, in respect of persons, the faith of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ,
2. for if there may come into your synagogue a man with gold ring, in gay raiment, and there may come in also a poor man in vile raiment,
3. and ye may look upon him bearing the gay raiment, and may say to him, `Thou -- sit thou here well,` and to the poor man may say, `Thou -- stand thou there, or, Sit thou here under my footstool,` --
4. ye did not judge fully in yourselves, and did become ill-reasoning judges.
5. Hearken, my brethren beloved, did not God choose the poor of this world, rich in faith, and heirs of the reign that He promised to those loving Him?
6. and ye did dishonour the poor one; do not the rich oppress you and themselves draw you to judgment-seats;
7. do they not themselves speak evil of the good name that was called upon you?
8. If, indeed, royal law ye complete, according to the Writing, `Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself,` -- ye do well;
9. and if ye accept persons, sin ye do work, being convicted by the law as transgressors;
10. for whoever the whole law shall keep, and shall stumble in one [point], he hath become guilty of all;
11. for He who is saying, `Thou mayest not commit adultery,` said also, `Thou mayest do no murder;` and if thou shalt not commit adultery, and shalt commit murder, thou hast become a transgressor of law;
12. so speak ye and so do, as about by a law of liberty to be judged,
13. for the judgment without kindness [is] to him not having done kindness, and exult doth kindness over judgment.
14. What [is] the profit, my brethren, if faith, any one may speak of having, and works he may not have? is that faith able to save him?
15. and if a brother or sister may be naked, and may be destitute of the daily food,
16. and any one of you may say to them, `Depart ye in peace, be warmed, and be filled,` and may not give to them the things needful for the body, what [is] the profit?
17. so also the faith, if it may not have works, is dead by itself.
18. But say may some one, Thou hast faith, and I have works, shew me thy faith out of thy works, and I will shew thee out of my works my faith:
19. thou -- thou dost believe that God is one; thou dost well, and the demons believe, and they shudder!
20. And dost thou wish to know, O vain man, that the faith apart from the works is dead?
21. Abraham our father -- was not he declared righteous out of works, having brought up Isaac his son upon the altar?
22. dost thou see that the faith was working with his works, and out of the works the faith was perfected?
23. and fulfilled was the Writing that is saying, `And Abraham did believe God, and it was reckoned to him -- to righteousness;` and, `Friend of God` he was called.
24. Ye see, then, that out of works is man declared righteous, and not out of faith only;
25. and in like manner also Rahab the harlot -- was she not out of works declared righteous, having received the messengers, and by another way having sent forth?
26. for as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also the faith apart from the works is dead.
