Exodus 15:1-27
1. Then singeth Moses and the sons of Israel this song to Jehovah, and they speak, saying: -- `I sing to Jehovah, For triumphing He hath triumphed; The horse and its rider He hath thrown into the sea.
2. My strength and song is JAH, And He is become my salvation: This [is] my God, and I glorify Him; God of my father, and I exalt Him.
3. Jehovah [is] a man of battle; Jehovah [is] His name.
4. Chariots of Pharaoh and his force He hath cast into the sea; And the choice of his captains Have sunk in the Red Sea!
5. The depths do cover them; They went down into the depths as a stone.
6. Thy right hand, O Jehovah, Is become honourable in power; Thy right hand, O Jehovah, Doth crush an enemy.
7. And in the abundance of Thine excellency Thou throwest down Thy withstanders, Thou sendest forth Thy wrath -- It consumeth them as stubble.
8. And by the spirit of Thine anger Have waters been heaped together; Stood as a heap have flowings; Congealed have been depths In the heart of a sea.
9. The enemy said, I pursue, I overtake; I apportion spoil; Filled is my soul with them; I draw out my sword; My hand destroyeth them: --
10. Thou hast blown with Thy wind The sea hath covered them; They sank as lead in mighty waters.
11. Who [is] like Thee among the gods, O Jehovah? Who [is] like Thee -- honourable in holiness -- Fearful in praises -- doing wonders?
12. Thou hast stretched out Thy right hand -- Earth swalloweth them!
13. Thou hast led forth in Thy kindness The people whom Thou hast redeemed. Thou hast led on in Thy strength Unto Thy holy habitation.
14. Peoples have heard, they are troubled; Pain hath seized inhabitants of Philistia.
15. Then have chiefs of Edom been troubled: Mighty ones of Moab -- Trembling doth seize them! Melted have all inhabitants of Canaan!
16. Fall on them doth terror and dread; By the greatness of Thine arm They are still as a stone, Till Thy people pass over, O Jehovah; Till the people pass over Whom Thou hast purchased.
17. Thou dost bring them in, And dost plant them In a mountain of Thine inheritance, A fixed place for Thy dwelling Thou hast made, O Jehovah; A sanctuary, O Lord, Thy hands have established;
18. Jehovah reigneth -- to the age, and for ever!`
19. For the horse of Pharaoh hath gone in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and Jehovah turneth back on them the waters of the sea, and the sons of Israel have gone on dry land in the midst of the sea.
20. And Miriam the inspired one, sister of Aaron, taketh the timbrel in her hand, and all the women go out after her, with timbrels and with choruses;
21. and Miriam answereth to them: -- `Sing ye to Jehovah, For Triumphing He hath triumphed; The horse and its rider He hath thrown into the sea!`
22. And Moses causeth Israel to journey from the Red Sea, and they go out unto the wilderness of Shur, and they go three days in the wilderness, and have not found water,
23. and they come in to Marah, and have not been able to drink the waters of Marah, for they [are] bitter; therefore hath [one] called its name Marah.
24. And the people murmur against Moses, saying, `What do we drink?`
25. and he crieth unto Jehovah, and Jehovah sheweth him a tree, and he casteth unto the waters, and the waters become sweet. There He hath made for them a statute, and an ordinance, and there He hath tried them,
26. and He saith, `If thou dost really hearken to the voice of Jehovah thy God, and dost that which is right in His eyes, and hast hearkened to His commands, and kept all His statutes: none of the sickness which I laid on the Egyptians do I lay on thee, for I, Jehovah, am healing thee.
27. And they come to Elim, and there [are] twelve fountains of water, and seventy palm trees; and they encamp there by the waters.

Exodus 16:1-36
1. And they journey from Elim, and all the company of the sons of Israel come in unto the wilderness of Sin, which [is] between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month of their going out from the land of Egypt.
2. And all the company of the sons of Israel murmur against Moses and against Aaron in the wilderness;
3. and the sons of Israel say unto them, `Oh that we had died by the hand of Jehovah in the land of Egypt, in our sitting by the flesh-pot, in our eating bread to satiety -- for ye have brought us out unto this wilderness to put all this assembly to death with hunger.`
4. And Jehovah saith unto Moses, `Lo, I am raining to you bread from the heavens -- and the people have gone out and gathered the matter of a day in its day -- so that I try them whether they walk in My law, or not;
5. and it hath been on the sixth day, that they have prepared that which they bring in, and it hath been double above that which they gather day [by] day.`
6. And Moses saith -- Aaron also -- unto all the sons of Israel, `Evening -- and ye have known that Jehovah hath brought you out from the land of Egypt;
7. and morning -- and ye have seen the honour of Jehovah, in His hearing your murmurings against Jehovah, and what [are] we, that ye murmur against us?`
8. And Moses saith, `In Jehovah`s giving to you in the evening flesh to eat, and bread in the morning to satiety -- in Jehovah`s hearing your murmurings, which ye are murmuring against Him, and what [are] we? your murmurings [are] not against us, but against Jehovah.`
9. And Moses saith unto Aaron, `Say unto all the company of the sons of Israel, Come ye near before Jehovah, for He hath heard your murmurings;`
10. and it cometh to pass, when Aaron is speaking unto all the company of the sons of Israel, that they turn towards the wilderness, and lo, the honour of Jehovah is seen in the cloud.
11. And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
12. `I have heard the murmurings of the sons of Israel; speak unto them, saying, Between the evenings ye eat flesh, and in the morning ye are satisfied [with] bread, and ye have known that I [am] Jehovah your God.`
13. And it cometh to pass in the evening, that the quail cometh up, and covereth the camp, and in the morning there hath been the lying of dew round about the camp,
14. and the lying of the dew goeth up, and lo, on the face of the wilderness a thin, bare thing, thin as hoar-frost on the earth.
15. And the sons of Israel see, and say one unto another, `What [is] it?` for they have not known what it [is]; and Moses saith unto them, `It [is] the bread which Jehovah hath given to you for food.
16. `This [is] the thing which Jehovah hath commanded: Gather of it each according to his eating, an omer for a poll; and the number of your persons, take ye each for those in his tent.`
17. And the sons of Israel do so, and they gather, he who is [gathering] much, and he who is [gathering] little;
18. and they measure with an omer, and he who is [gathering] much hath nothing over, and he who is [gathering] little hath no lack, each according to his eating they have gathered.
19. And Moses saith unto them, `Let no man leave of it till morning;`
20. and they have not hearkened unto Moses, and some of them do leave of it till morning, and it bringeth up worms and stinketh; and Moses is wroth with them.
21. And they gather it morning by morning, each according to his eating; when the sun hath been warm, then it hath melted.
22. And it cometh to pass on the sixth day, they have gathered a second bread, two omers for one, and all the princes of the company come in, and declare to Moses.
23. And he saith unto them, `It [is] that which Jehovah hath spoken [of]; a rest -- a holy sabbath to Jehovah -- [is] to-morrow; that which ye bake, bake; and that which ye boil, boil; and all that is over, let rest for yourselves in charge till the morning.`
24. And they let it rest until the morning, as Moses hath commanded, and it hath not stank, and a worm hath not been in it.
25. And Moses saith, `Eat it to-day, for to-day [is] a sabbath to Jehovah; to-day ye find it not in the field:
26. six days ye do gather it, and in the seventh day -- the sabbath -- in it there is none.`
27. And it cometh to pass on the seventh day, some of the people have gone out to gather, and have not found.
28. And Jehovah saith unto Moses, `How long have ye refused to keep My commands, and My laws?
29. see, because Jehovah hath given to you the sabbath, therefore He is giving to you on the sixth day bread of two days; abide ye each [in] his place, no one doth go out from his place on the seventh day.`
30. And the people rest on the seventh day,
31. and the house of Israel call its name Manna, and it [is] as coriander seed, white; and its taste [is] as a cake with honey.
32. And Moses saith, `This [is] the thing which Jehovah hath commanded: Fill the omer with it, for a charge for your generations, so that they see the bread which I have caused you to eat in the wilderness, in My bringing you out from the land of Egypt.`
33. And Moses saith unto Aaron, `Take one pot, and put there the fulness of the omer of manna, and let it rest before Jehovah, for a charge for your generations;`
34. as Jehovah hath given commandment unto Moses, so doth Aaron let it rest before the Testimony, for a charge.
35. And the sons of Israel have eaten the manna forty years, until their coming in unto the land to be inhabited; the manna they have eaten till their coming in unto the extremity of the land of Canaan.
36. and the omer is a tenth of the ephah.

Psalms 18:20-27
20. Jehovah doth recompense me According to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands, He doth return to me.
21. For I have kept the ways of Jehovah, And have not done wickedly against my God.
22. For all His judgments [are] before me, And His statutes I turn not from me.
23. And I am perfect with him, And I keep myself from mine iniquity.
24. And Jehovah doth return to me, According to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands, Over-against his eyes.
25. With the kind Thou showest Thyself kind, With a perfect man showest Thyself perfect.
26. With the pure Thou showest Thyself pure, And with the perverse showest Thyself a wrestler,
27. For Thou a poor people savest, And the eyes of the high causest to fall.

Proverbs 6:12-15
12. A man of worthlessness, a man of iniquity, Walking [with] perverseness of mouth,
13. Winking with his eyes, speaking with his feet, Directing with his fingers,
14. Frowardness [is] in his heart, devising evil at all times, Contentions he sendeth forth.
15. Therefore suddenly cometh his calamity, Instantly he is broken -- and no healing.

Matthew 21:23-46
23. And he having come to the temple, there came to him when teaching the chief priests and the elders of the people, saying, `By what authority dost thou do these things? and who gave thee this authority?`
24. And Jesus answering said to them, `I will ask you -- I also -- one word, which if ye may tell me, I also will tell you by what authority I do these things;
25. the baptism of John, whence was it? -- from heaven, or from men?` And they were reasoning with themselves, saying, `If we should say, From heaven; he will say to us, Wherefore, then, did ye not believe him?
26. and if we should say, From men, we fear the multitude, for all hold John as a prophet.`
27. And answering Jesus they said, `We have not known.` He said to them -- he also -- `Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
28. `And what think ye? A man had two children, and having come to the first, he said, Child, go, to-day be working in my vineyard.`
29. And he answering said, `I will not,` but at last, having repented, he went.
30. `And having come to the second, he said in the same manner, and he answering said, I [go], sir, and went not;
31. which of the two did the will of the father?` They say to him, `The first.` Jesus saith to them, `Verily I say to you, that the tax-gatherers and the harlots do go before you into the reign of God,
32. for John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye did not believe him, and the tax-gatherers and the harlots did believe him, and ye, having seen, repented not at last -- to believe him.
33. `Hear ye another simile: There was a certain man, a householder, who planted a vineyard, and did put a hedge round it, and digged in it a wine-press, and built a tower, and gave it out to husbandmen, and went abroad.
34. `And when the season of the fruits came nigh, he sent his servants unto the husbandmen, to receive the fruits of it,
35. and the husbandmen having taken his servants, one they scourged, and one they killed, and one they stoned.
36. `Again he sent other servants more than the first, and they did to them in the same manner.
37. `And at last he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son;
38. and the husbandmen having seen the son, said among themselves, This is the heir, come, we may kill him, and may possess his inheritance;
39. and having taken him, they cast [him] out of the vineyard, and killed him;
40. whenever therefore the lord of the vineyard may come, what will he do to these husbandmen?`
41. They say to him, `Evil men -- he will evilly destroy them, and the vineyard will give out to other husbandmen, who will give back to him the fruits in their seasons.`
42. Jesus saith to them, `Did ye never read in the Writings, A stone that the builders disallowed, it became head of a corner; from the Lord hath this come to pass, and it is wonderful in our eyes.
43. `Because of this I say to you, that the reign of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth its fruit;
44. and he who is falling on this stone shall be broken, and on whomsoever it may fall it will crush him to pieces.`
45. And the chief priests and the Pharisees having heard his similes, knew that of them he speaketh,
46. and seeking to lay hold on him, they feared the multitudes, seeing they were holding him as a prophet.
