Leviticus 17:1-16
1. And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
2. `Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the sons of Israel; and thou hast said unto them, This [is] the thing which Jehovah hath commanded, saying,
3. Any man of the house of Israel who slaughtereth ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or who slaughtereth at the outside of the camp,
4. and unto the opening of the tent of meeting hath not brought it in to bring near an offering to Jehovah before the tabernacle of Jehovah, blood is reckoned to that man -- blood he hath shed -- and that man hath been cut off from the midst of his people;
5. so that the sons of Israel do bring in their sacrifices which they are sacrificing on the face of the field, yea, they have brought them in to Jehovah, unto the opening of the tent of meeting, unto the priest, and they have sacrificed sacrifices of peace-offerings to Jehovah with them.
6. `And the priest hath sprinkled the blood upon the altar of Jehovah, at the opening of the tent of meeting, and hath made perfume with the fat for sweet fragrance to Jehovah;
7. and they sacrifice not any more their sacrifices to goats after which they are going a-whoring; a statute age-during is this to them, to their generations.
8. `And unto them thou sayest: Any man of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners, who sojourneth in your midst, who causeth burnt-offering or sacrifice to ascend,
9. and unto the opening of the tent of meeting doth not bring it in to make it to Jehovah -- that man hath been cut off from his people.
10. `And any man of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners, who is sojourning in your midst, who eateth any blood, I have even set My face against the person who is eating the blood, and have cut him off from the midst of his people;
11. for the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar, to make atonement for your souls; for it [is] the blood which maketh atonement for the soul.
12. `Therefore I have said to the sons of Israel, No person among you doth eat blood, and the sojourner who is sojourning in your midst doth not eat blood;
13. and any man of the sons of Israel, or of the sojourners, who is sojourning in your midst, who hunteth venison, beast or fowl, which is eaten -- hath even poured out its blood, and hath covered it with dust;
14. for [it is] the life of all flesh, its blood is for its life; and I say to the sons of Israel, Blood of any flesh ye do not eat, for the life of all flesh is its blood; any one eating it is cut off.
15. `And any person who eateth a carcase or torn thing, among natives or among sojourners -- hath both washed his garments, and hath bathed with water, and hath been unclean until the evening -- then he hath been clean;
16. and if he wash not, and his flesh bathe not -- then he hath borne his iniquity.`

Leviticus 18:1-30
1. And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
2. `Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, I [am] Jehovah your God;
3. according to the work of the land of Egypt in which ye have dwelt ye do not, and according to the work of the land of Canaan whither I am bringing you in, ye do not, and in their statutes ye walk not.
4. `My judgments ye do, and My statutes ye keep, to walk in them; I [am] Jehovah your God;
5. and ye have kept My statutes and My judgments which man doth and liveth in them; I [am] Jehovah.
6. `None of you unto any relation of his flesh doth draw near to uncover nakedness; I [am] Jehovah.
7. `The nakedness of thy father and the nakedness of thy mother thou dost not uncover, she [is] thy mother; thou dost not uncover her nakedness.
8. `The nakedness of the wife of thy father thou dost not uncover; it [is] the nakedness of thy father.
9. `The nakedness of thy sister, daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, born at home or born without; thou dost not uncover their nakedness.
10. `The nakedness of thy son`s daughter, or of thy daughter`s daughter: thou dost not uncover their nakedness; for theirs [is] thy nakedness.
11. `The nakedness of a daughter of thy father`s wife, begotten of thy father, she [is] thy sister; thou dost not uncover her nakedness.
12. `The nakedness of a sister of thy father thou dost not uncover; she [is] a relation of thy father.
13. `The nakedness of thy mother`s sister thou dost not uncover; for she [is] thy mother`s relation.
14. `The nakedness of thy father`s brother thou dost not uncover; unto his wife thou dost not draw near; she [is] thine aunt.
15. `The nakedness of thy daughter-in-law thou dost not uncover; she [is] thy son`s wife; thou dost not uncover her nakedness.
16. `The nakedness of thy brother`s wife thou dost not uncover; it [is] thy brother`s nakedness.
17. `The nakedness of a woman and her daughter thou dost not uncover; her son`s daughter, and her daughter`s daughter thou dost not take to uncover her nakedness; they [are] her relations; it [is] wickedness.
18. `And a woman unto another thou dost not take, to be an adversary, to uncover her nakedness beside her, in her life.
19. `And unto a woman in the separation of her uncleanness thou dost not draw near to uncover her nakedness.
20. `And unto the wife of thy fellow thou dost not give thy seed of copulation, for uncleanness with her.
21. `And of thy seed thou dost not give to pass over to the Molech; nor dost thou pollute the name of thy God; I [am] Jehovah.
22. `And with a male thou dost not lie as one lieth with a woman; abomination it [is].
23. `And with any beast thou dost not give thy copulation, for uncleanness with it; and a woman doth not stand before a beast to lie down with it; confusion it [is].
24. `Ye are not defiled with all these, for with all these have the nations been defiled which I am sending away from before you;
25. and the land is defiled, and I charge its iniquity upon it, and the land vomiteth out its inhabitants:
26. and ye -- ye have kept My statutes and My judgments, and do not [any] of all these abominations, the native and the sojourner who is sojourning in your midst,
27. (for all these abominations have the men of the land done who [are] before you, and the land is defiled),
28. and the land doth not vomit you out in your defiling it, as it hath vomited out the nation which [is] before you;
29. for any one who doth [any] of all these abominations -- even the persons who are doing [so], have been cut off from the midst of their people;
30. and ye have kept My charge, so as not to do [any] of the abominable statutes which have been done before you, and ye do not defile yourselves with them; I [am] Jehovah your God.`

Psalms 27:1-3
1. By David. Jehovah [is] my light and my salvation, Whom do I fear? Jehovah [is] the strength of my life, Of whom am I afraid?
2. When evil doers come near to me to eat my flesh, My adversaries and mine enemies to me, They have stumbled and fallen.
3. Though a host doth encamp against me, My heart doth not fear, Though war riseth up against me, In this I [am] confident.

Proverbs 10:9-9
9. Whoso is walking in integrity walketh confidently, And whoso is perverting his ways is known.

Mark 4:21-41
21. And he said to them, `Doth the lamp come that under the measure it may be put, or under the couch -- not that it may be put on the lamp-stand?
22. for there is not anything hid that may not be manifested, nor was anything kept hid but that it may come to light.
23. If any hath ears to hear -- let him hear.`
24. And he said to them, `Take heed what ye hear; in what measure ye measure, it shall be measured to you; and to you who hear it shall be added;
25. for whoever may have, there shall be given to him, and whoever hath not, also that which he hath shall be taken from him.`
26. And he said, `Thus is the reign of God: as if a man may cast the seed on the earth,
27. and may sleep, and may rise night and day, and the seed spring up and grow, he hath not known how;
28. for of itself doth the earth bear fruit, first a blade, afterwards an ear, afterwards full corn in the ear;
29. and whenever the fruit may yield itself, immediately he doth send forth the sickle, because the harvest hath come.`
30. And he said, `To what may we liken the reign of God, or in what simile may we compare it?
31. As a grain of mustard, which, whenever it may be sown on the earth, is less than any of the seeds that are on the earth;
32. and whenever it may be sown, it cometh up, and doth become greater than any of the herbs, and doth make great branches, so that under its shade the fowls of the heaven are able to rest.`
33. And with many such similes he was speaking to them the word, as they were able to hear,
34. and without a simile he was not speaking to them, and by themselves, to his disciples he was expounding all.
35. And he saith to them on that day, evening having come, `We may pass over to the other side;`
36. and having let away the multitude, they take him up as he was in the boat, and other little boats also were with him.
37. And there cometh a great storm of wind, and the waves were beating on the boat, so that it is now being filled,
38. and he himself was upon the stern, upon the pillow sleeping, and they wake him up, and say to him, `Teacher, art thou not caring that we perish?`
39. And having waked up, he rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, `Peace, be stilled;` and the wind did lull, and there was a great calm:
40. and he said to them, `Why are ye so fearful? how have ye not faith?`
41. and they feared a great fear, and said one to another, `Who, then, is this, that even the wind and the sea do obey him?`
