Ezekiel 35:1-15
1. And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying:
2. `Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy against it,
3. and thou hast said to it: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Lo, I [am] against thee, O mount Seir, And have stretched out My hand against thee, And made thee a desolation and an astonishment.
4. Thy cities a waste I make, and thou art a desolation, And thou hast known that I [am] Jehovah.
5. Because of thy having an enmity age-during, And thou dost saw the sons of Israel, By the hands of the sword, In the time of their calamity, In the time of the iniquity of the end:
6. Therefore, I live -- an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, Surely for blood I do appoint thee, And blood doth pursue thee, If blood thou hast not hated, Blood also doth pursue thee.
7. And I have given mount Seir for a desolation and an astonishment, And have cut off from it him who is passing over and him who is returning,
8. And filled his mountains with his wounded, Thy hills, and thy valleys, and all thy streams, The pierced of the sword fall into them.
9. Desolations age-during I make thee, And thy cities do not return, And ye have known that I [am] Jehovah.
10. Because of thy saying: The two nations and the two lands are mine, and we have possessed it, And Jehovah hath been there;
11. Therefore, I live -- an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, And I have done according to thine anger, And according to thine envy, With which thou hast wrought, Because of thy hatred against them, And I have been known among them when I judge thee.
12. And thou hast known that I -- Jehovah, I have heard all thy despisings that thou hast spoken Against mountains of Israel, saying: A desolation, to us they were given for food.
13. And ye magnify yourselves against Me with your mouth, And have made abundant against Me your words, I -- I have heard.
14. Thus said the Lord Jehovah: According to the rejoicing of the whole land, A desolation I make of thee.
15. According to thy joy at the inheritance of the house of Israel because of desolation, So I do to thee -- a desolation thou art, O mount Seir, and all Edom -- all of it, And they have known that I [am] Jehovah!

Ezekiel 36:1-38
1. And thou, son of man, prophesy unto mountains of Israel, and thou hast said, O mountains of Israel, hear a word of Jehovah.
2. Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Because the enemy said against you, Aha, and the high places of old for a possession have been to us,
3. therefore, prophesy, and thou hast said: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Because, even because, of desolating, And of swallowing you up from round about, For your being a possession to the remnant of the nations, And ye are taken up on the tip of the tongue, And [are] an evil report of the people.
4. Therefore, O mountains of Israel, Hear a word of the Lord Jehovah: Thus said the Lord Jehovah, to mountains, and to hills, To streams, and to valleys, And to wastes that [are] desolate, And to cities that are forsaken, That have been for a prey, And for a scorn, to the remnant of the nations who [are] round about.
5. Therefore, thus said the Lord Jehovah: Have I not, in the fire of My jealousy, Spoken against the remnant of the nations, And against Edom -- all of it, Who gave My land to themselves for a possession, With the joy of the whole heart -- with despite of soul, For the sake of casting it out for a prey?
6. Therefore, prophesy concerning the ground of Israel, And thou hast said to mountains, and to hills, To streams, and to valleys, Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Lo, I, in My jealousy, and in My fury, I have spoken, Because the shame of nations ye have borne.
7. Therefore, thus said the Lord Jehovah: I -- I have lifted up My hand, Do not -- the nations who [are] with you from round about -- they their own shame bear?
8. And ye, O mountains of Israel, Your branch ye give out, and your fruits ye bear for My people Israel, For they have drawn near to come.
9. For, lo, I [am] for you, and have turned to you, And ye have been tilled and sown.
10. And I have multiplied on you men, All the house of Israel -- all of it, And the cities have been inhabited, And the wastes are built.
11. And I have multiplied on you man and beast, And they have multiplied and been fruitful, And I have caused you to dwell according to your former states, And I have done better than at your beginnings, And ye have known that I [am] Jehovah.
12. And I have caused man to walk over you, -- My people Israel, And they possess thee, and thou hast been to them for an inheritance, And thou dost add no more to bereave them.
13. Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Because they are saying to you: A devourer of men [art] thou, And a bereaver of thy nations thou hast been,
14. Therefore, man thou devourest no more, And thy nations thou causest not to stumble any more, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.
15. And I proclaim not unto thee any more the shame of the nations, And the reproach of peoples thou bearest no more, And thy nations stumble not any more, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.`
16. And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying,
17. `Son of man, The house of Israel are dwelling on their land, And they defile it by their way and by their doings, As the uncleanness of a separated one hath their way been before Me.
18. And I do pour out My fury upon them For the blood that they shed on the land, And with their idols they have defiled it.
19. And I scatter them among nations, And they are spread through lands, According to their way, and according to their doings, I have judged them.
20. And one goeth in unto the nations whither they have gone, And they pollute My holy name by saying to them, The people of Jehovah [are] these, And from His land they have gone forth.
21. And I have pity on My holy name, That the house of Israel have polluted among nations whither they have gone in.
22. Therefore, say to the house of Israel, Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Not for your sake am I working, O house of Israel, But -- for My holy name, That ye have polluted among nations whither ye have gone in.
23. And I have sanctified My great name, That is profaned among nations, That ye have polluted in your midst, And known have the nations that I [am] Jehovah, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, In My being sanctified in you before your eyes.
24. And I have taken you out of the nations, And have gathered you out of all the lands, And I have brought you in unto your land,
25. And I have sprinkled over you clean water, And ye have been clean; From all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols, I do cleanse you.
26. And I have given to you a new heart, And a new spirit I give in your midst, And I have turned aside the heart of stone out of your flesh, And I have given to you a heart of flesh.
27. And My Spirit I give in your midst, And I have done this, so that in My statutes ye walk, And My judgments ye keep, and have done them.
28. And ye have dwelt in the land that I have given to your fathers, And ye have been to Me for a people, And I -- I am to you for God.
29. And I have saved you from all your uncleannesses, And I have called unto the corn, and multiplied it, And I have put no famine upon you.
30. And I have multiplied the fruit of the tree, And the increase of the field, So that ye receive not any more a reproach of famine among nations.
31. And ye have remembered your ways that [are] evil, And your doings that [are] not good, And have been loathsome in your own faces, For your iniquities, and for your abominations.
32. Not for your sake am I working, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, Be it known to you, Be ashamed and confounded, because of your ways, O house of Israel.
33. Thus said the Lord Jehovah: In the day of My cleansing you from all your iniquities, I have caused the cities to be inhabited, And the wastes have been built,
34. And the desolate land is tilled, Instead of which it was a desolation before the eyes of every passer by,
35. And they have said: This land, that was desolated, Hath been as the garden of Eden, And the cities -- the wasted, And the desolated, and the broken down, Fenced places have remained.
36. And known have the nations who are left round about you, That I Jehovah have built the thrown down, I have planted the desolated: I Jehovah have spoken, and I have done [it].
37. Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Yet this I am required, By the house of Israel to do to them, I multiply them as a flock of men,
38. As a flock of holy ones, as a flock of Jerusalem, In her appointed seasons, So are the waste cities full of flocks of men, And they have known that I [am] Jehovah!`

Psalms 131:1-3
1. A Song of the Ascents, by David. Jehovah, my heart hath not been haughty, Nor have mine eyes been high, Nor have I walked in great things, And in things too wonderful for me.
2. Have I not compared, and kept silent my soul, As a weaned one by its mother? As a weaned one by me [is] my soul.
3. Israel doth wait on Jehovah, From henceforth, and unto the age!

Proverbs 29:2-3
2. In the multiplying of the righteous the people rejoice, And in the ruling of the wicked the people sigh.
3. A man loving wisdom rejoiceth his father, And a friend of harlots destroyeth wealth.

James 3:1-18
1. Many teachers become not, my brethren, having known that greater judgment we shall receive,
2. for we all make many stumbles; if any one in word doth not stumble, this one [is] a perfect man, able to bridle also the whole body;
3. lo, the bits we put into the mouths of the horses for their obeying us, and their whole body we turn about;
4. lo, also the ships, being so great, and by fierce winds being driven, are led about by a very small helm, whithersoever the impulse of the helmsman doth counsel,
5. so also the tongue is a little member, and doth boast greatly; lo, a little fire how much wood it doth kindle!
6. and the tongue [is] a fire, the world of the unrighteousness, so the tongue is set in our members, which is spotting our whole body, and is setting on fire the course of nature, and is set on fire by the gehenna.
7. For every nature, both of beasts and of fowls, both of creeping things and things of the sea, is subdued, and hath been subdued, by the human nature,
8. and the tongue no one of men is able to subdue, [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison,
9. with it we do bless the God and Father, and with it we do curse the men made according to the similitude of God;
10. out of the same mouth doth come forth blessing and cursing; it doth not need, my brethren, these things so to happen;
11. doth the fountain out of the same opening pour forth the sweet and the bitter?
12. is a fig-tree able, my brethren, olives to make? or a vine figs? so no fountain salt and sweet water [is able] to make.
13. Who [is] wise and intelligent among you? let him shew out of the good behaviour his works in meekness of wisdom,
14. and if bitter zeal ye have, and rivalry in your heart, glory not, nor lie against the truth;
15. this wisdom is not descending from above, but earthly, physical, demon-like,
16. for where zeal and rivalry [are], there is insurrection and every evil matter;
17. and the wisdom from above, first, indeed, is pure, then peaceable, gentle, easily entreated, full of kindness and good fruits, uncontentious, and unhypocritical: --
18. and the fruit of the righteousness in peace is sown to those making peace.
