Exodus 19:1-25
1. In the third month of the going out of the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt, in this day they have come into the wilderness of Sinai,
2. and they journey from Rephidim, and enter the wilderness of Sinai, and encamp in the wilderness; and Israel encampeth there before the mount.
3. And Moses hath gone up unto God, and Jehovah calleth unto him out of the mount, saying, `Thus dost thou say to the house of Jacob, and declare to the sons of Israel,
4. Ye -- ye have seen that which I have done to the Egyptians, and I bear you on eagles` wings, and bring you in unto Myself.
5. `And now, if ye really hearken to My voice, then ye have kept My covenant, and been to Me a peculiar treasure more than all the peoples, for all the earth [is] Mine;
6. and ye -- ye are to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation: these [are] the words which thou dost speak unto the sons of Israel.`
7. And Moses cometh, and calleth for the elders of the people, and setteth before them all these words which Jehovah hath commanded him;
8. and all the people answer together and say, `All that Jehovah hath spoken we do;` and Moses returneth the words of the people unto Jehovah.
9. And Jehovah saith unto Moses, `Lo, I am coming unto thee in the thickness of the cloud, so that the people hear in My speaking with thee, and also believe in thee to the age;` and Moses declareth the words of the people unto Jehovah.
10. And Jehovah saith unto Moses, `Go unto the people; and thou hast sanctified them to-day and to-morrow, and they have washed their garments,
11. and have been prepared for the third day; for on the third day doth Jehovah come down before the eyes of all the people, on mount Sinai.
12. `And thou hast made a border [for] the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, going up into the mount, or coming against its extremity; whoever is coming against the mount is certainly put to death;
13. a hand cometh not against him, for he is certainly stoned or shot through, whether beast or man it liveth not; in the drawing out of the jubilee cornet they go up into the mount.`
14. And Moses cometh down from the mount unto the people, and sanctifieth the people, and they wash their garments;
15. and he saith unto the people, `Be ye prepared for the third day, come not nigh unto a woman.`
16. And it cometh to pass, on the third day, while it is morning, that there are voices, and lightnings, and a heavy cloud, on the mount, and the sound of a trumpet very strong; and all the people who [are] in the camp do tremble.
17. And Moses bringeth out the people to meet God from the camp, and they station themselves at the lower part of the mount,
18. and mount Sinai [is] wholly a smoke from the presence of Jehovah, who hath come down on it in fire, and its smoke goeth up as smoke of the furnace, and the whole mount trembleth exceedingly;
19. and the sound of the trumpet is going on, and very strong; Moses speaketh, and God doth answer him with a voice.
20. And Jehovah cometh down on mount Sinai, unto the top of the mount, and Jehovah calleth for Moses unto the top of the mount, and Moses goeth up.
21. And Jehovah saith unto Moses, `Go down, protest to the people, lest they break through unto Jehovah to see, and many of them have fallen;
22. and also the priests who are coming nigh unto Jehovah do sanctify themselves, lest Jehovah break forth on them.`
23. And Moses saith unto Jehovah, `The people [is] unable to come up unto mount Sinai, for Thou -- Thou hast protested to us, saying, Make a border [for] the mount, then thou hast sanctified it.`
24. And Jehovah saith unto him, `Go, descend, then thou hast come up, thou, and Aaron with thee; and the priests and the people do not break through, to come up unto Jehovah, lest He break forth upon them.`
25. And Moses goeth down unto the people, and saith unto them: --

Exodus 20:1-26
1. `And God speaketh all these words, saying,
2. I [am] Jehovah thy God, who hath brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of a house of servants.
3. `Thou hast no other Gods before Me.
4. `Thou dost not make to thyself a graven image, or any likeness which [is] in the heavens above, or which [is] in the earth beneath, or which [is] in the waters under the earth.
5. Thou dost not bow thyself to them, nor serve them: for I, Jehovah thy God, [am] a zealous God, charging iniquity of fathers on sons, on the third [generation], and on the fourth, of those hating Me,
6. and doing kindness to thousands, of those loving Me and keeping My commands.
7. `Thou dost not take up the name of Jehovah thy God for a vain thing, for Jehovah acquitteth not him who taketh up His name for a vain thing.
8. `Remember the Sabbath-day to sanctify it;
9. six days thou dost labour, and hast done all thy work,
10. and the seventh day [is] a Sabbath to Jehovah thy God; thou dost not do any work, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man-servant, and thy handmaid, and thy cattle, and thy sojourner who is within thy gates, --
11. for six days hath Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that [is] in them, and resteth in the seventh day; therefore hath Jehovah blessed the Sabbath-day, and doth sanctify it.
12. `Honour thy father and thy mother, so that thy days are prolonged on the ground which Jehovah thy God is giving to thee.
13. `Thou dost not murder.
14. `Thou dost not commit adultery.
15. `Thou dost not steal.
16. `Thou dost not answer against thy neighbour a false testimony.
17. `Thou dost not desire the house of thy neighbour, thou dost not desire the wife of thy neighbour, or his man-servant, or his handmaid, or his ox, or his ass, or anything which [is] thy neighbour`s.`
18. And all the people are seeing the voices, and the flames, and the sound of the trumpet, and the mount smoking; and the people see, and move, and stand afar off,
19. and say unto Moses, `Speak thou with us, and we hear, and let not God speak with us, lest we die.`
20. And Moses saith unto the people, `Fear not, for to try you hath God come, and in order that His fear may be before your faces -- that ye sin not.`
21. And the people stand afar off, and Moses hath drawn nigh unto the thick darkness where God [is].
22. And Jehovah saith unto Moses, `Thus dost thou say unto the sons of Israel: Ye -- ye have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you;
23. ye do not make with Me gods of silver, even gods of gold ye do not make to yourselves.
24. `An altar of earth thou dost make for Me, and thou hast sacrificed on it thy burnt-offerings and thy peace-offerings, thy flock and thy herd; in every place where I cause My name to be remembered I come in unto thee, and have blessed thee.
25. `And if an altar of stones thou dost make to Me, thou dost not build them of hewn work; when thy tool thou hast waved over it, then thou dost pollute it;
26. neither dost thou go up by steps on Mine altar, that thy nakedness be not revealed upon it.

Psalms 18:37-45
37. I pursue mine enemies, and overtake them, And turn back not till they are consumed.
38. I smite them, and they are not able to rise, They fall under my feet,
39. And Thou girdest me [with] strength for battle, Causest my withstanders to bow under me.
40. As to mine enemies -- Thou hast given to me the neck, As to those hating me -- I cut them off.
41. They cry, and there is no saviour, On Jehovah, and He doth not answer them.
42. And I beat them as dust before wind, As mire of the streets I empty them out.
43. Thou dost deliver me From the strivings of the people, Thou placest me for a head of nations, A people I have not known do serve me.
44. At the hearing of the ear they hearken to me, Sons of a stranger feign obedience to me,
45. Sons of a stranger fade away, And are slain out of their close places.

Proverbs 6:20-25
20. Keep, my son, the command of thy father, And leave not the law of thy mother.
21. Bind them on thy heart continually, Tie them on thy neck.
22. In thy going up and down, it leadeth thee, In thy lying down, it watcheth over thee, And thou hast awaked -- it talketh [with] thee.
23. For a lamp [is] the command, And the law a light, And a way of life [are] reproofs of instruction,
24. To preserve thee from an evil woman, From the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
25. Desire not her beauty in thy heart, And let her not take thee with her eyelids.

Matthew 22:23-46
23. In that day there came near to him Sadducees, who are saying there is not a rising again, and they questioned him, saying,
24. `Teacher, Moses said, If any one may die not having children, his brother shall marry his wife, and shall raise up seed to his brother.
25. `And there were with us seven brothers, and the first having married did die, and not having seed, he left his wife to his brother;
26. in like manner also the second, and the third, unto the seventh,
27. and last of all died also the woman;
28. therefore in the rising again, of which of the seven shall she be wife -- for all had her?`
29. And Jesus answering said to them, `Ye go astray, not knowing the Writings, nor the power of God;
30. for in the rising again they do not marry, nor are they given in marriage, but are as messengers of God in heaven.
31. `And concerning the rising again of the dead, did ye not read that which was spoken to you by God, saying,
32. I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not a God of dead men, but of living.`
33. And having heard, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching;
34. and the Pharisees, having heard that he did silence the Sadducees, were gathered together unto him;
35. and one of them, a lawyer, did question, tempting him, and saying,
36. `Teacher, which [is] the great command in the Law?`
37. And Jesus said to him, `Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thine understanding --
38. this is a first and great command;
39. and the second [is] like to it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself;
40. on these -- the two commands -- all the law and the prophets do hang.`
41. And the Pharisees having been gathered together, Jesus did question them,
42. saying, `What do ye think concerning the Christ? of whom is he son?` They say to him, `Of David.`
43. He saith to them, `How then doth David in the Spirit call him lord, saying,
44. The Lord said to my lord, Sit at my right hand, till I may make thine enemies thy footstool?
45. If then David doth call him lord, how is he his son?`
46. And no one was able to answer him a word, nor durst any from that day question him any more.
