Deuteronomy 7:1-26
1. `When Jehovah thy God doth bring thee in unto the land whither thou art going in to possess it, and He hath cast out many nations from thy presence, the Hittite, and the Girgashite, and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, seven nations more numerous and mighty than thou,
2. and Jehovah thy God hath given them before thee, and thou hast smitten them -- thou dost utterly devote them -- thou dost not make with them a covenant, nor dost thou favour them.
3. `And thou dost not join in marriage with them; thy daughter thou dost not give to his son, and his daughter thou dost not take to thy son,
4. for he doth turn aside thy son from after Me, and they have served other gods, and the anger of Jehovah hath burned against you, and hath destroyed thee hastily.
5. `But thus thou dost to them: their altars ye break down, and their standing pillars ye shiver, and their shrines ye cut down, and their graven images ye burn with fire;
6. for a holy people [art] thou to Jehovah thy God; on thee hath Jehovah thy God fixed, to be to Him for a peculiar people, out of all the peoples who [are] on the face of the ground.
7. `Not because of your being more numerous than any of the peoples hath Jehovah delighted in you, and fixeth on you, for ye [are] the least of all the peoples,
8. but because of Jehovah`s loving you, and because of His keeping the oath which He hath sworn to your fathers, hath Jehovah brought you out by a strong hand, and doth ransom you from a house of servants, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
9. `And thou hast known that Jehovah thy God He [is] God, the faithful God, keeping the covenant, and the kindness, to those loving Him, and to those keeping His commands -- to a thousand generations,
10. and repaying to those hating Him, unto their face, to destroy them; He delayeth not to him who is hating Him -- unto his face, He repayeth to him --
11. and thou hast kept the command, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I am commanding thee to-day to do them.
12. `And it hath been, because ye hear these judgments, and have kept, and done them, that Jehovah thy God hath kept to thee the covenant and the kindness which He hath sworn to thy fathers,
13. and hath loved thee, and blessed thee, and multiplied thee, and hath blessed the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy ground, thy corn, and thy new wine, and thine oil, the increase of thine oxen, and the wealth of thy flock, on the ground which He hath sworn to thy fathers to give to thee.
14. `Blessed art thou above all the peoples, there is not in thee a barren man or a barren woman -- nor among your cattle;
15. and Jehovah hath turned aside from thee every sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt (which thou hast known) doth He put on thee, and He hath put them on all hating thee.
16. `And thou hast consumed all the peoples whom Jehovah thy God is giving to thee; thine eye hath no pity on them, and thou dost not serve their gods, for a snare it [is] to thee.
17. `When thou sayest in thine heart, These nations [are] more numerous than I, how am I able to dispossess them? --
18. thou art not afraid of them; thou dost surely remember that which Jehovah thy God hath done to Pharaoh, and to all Egypt,
19. the great trials which thine eyes have seen, and the signs, and the wonders, and the strong hand, and the stretched-out arm, with which Jehovah thy God hath brought thee out; so doth Jehovah thy God to all the peoples of whose presence thou art afraid.
20. `And also the locust doth Jehovah thy God send among them, till the destruction of those who are left, and of those who are hidden from thy presence;
21. thou art not terrified by their presence, for Jehovah thy God [is] in thy midst, a God great and fearful.
22. `And Jehovah thy God hath cast out these nations from thy presence little [by] little, (thou art not able to consume them hastily, lest the beast of the field multiply against thee),
23. and Jehovah thy God hath given them before thee, and destroyed them -- a great destruction -- till their destruction;
24. and He hath given their kings into thy hand, and thou hast destroyed their name from under the heavens; no man doth station himself in thy presence till thou hast destroyed them.
25. `The graven images of their gods ye do burn with fire; thou dost not desire the silver and gold on them, nor hast thou taken [it] to thyself, lest thou be snared by it, for the abomination of Jehovah thy God it [is];
26. and thou dost not bring in an abomination unto thy house -- or thou hast been devoted like it; -- thou dost utterly detest it, and thou dost utterly abominate it; for it [is] devoted.

Deuteronomy 8:1-20
1. `All the command which I am commanding thee to-day ye observe to do, so that ye live, and have multiplied, and gone in, and possessed the land which Jehovah hath sworn to your fathers;
2. and thou hast remembered all the way which Jehovah thy God hath caused thee to go these forty years in the wilderness, in order to humble thee to try thee, to know that which [is] in thy heart, whether thou dost keep His commands or not.
3. `And He doth humble thee, and cause thee to hunger and doth cause thee to eat the manna (which thou hast not known, even thy fathers have not known), in order to cause thee to know that not by bread alone doth man live, but by every produce of the mouth of Jehovah man doth live.
4. `Thy raiment hath not worn out from off thee, and thy foot hath not swelled these forty years,
5. and thou hast known, with thy heart, that as a man chastiseth his son Jehovah thy God is chastising thee,
6. and thou hast kept the commands of Jehovah thy God, to walk in His ways, and to fear Him.
7. `For Jehovah thy God is bringing thee in unto a good land, a land of brooks of waters, of fountains, and of depths coming out in valley and in mountain:
8. a land of wheat, and barley, and vine, and fig, and pomegranate; a land of oil olive and honey;
9. a land in which without scarcity thou dost eat bread, thou dost not lack anything in it; a land whose stones [are] iron, and out of its mountains thou dost dig brass;
10. and thou hast eaten, and been satisfied, and hast blessed Jehovah thy God, on the good land which he hath given to thee.
11. `Take heed to thyself, lest thou forget Jehovah thy God so as not to keep His commands, and His judgments, and His statutes which I am commanding thee to-day;
12. lest thou eat, and hast been satisfied, and good houses dost build, and hast inhabited;
13. and thy herd and thy flock be multiplied, and silver and gold be multiplied to thee; and all that is thine be multiplied:
14. `And thy heart hath been high, and thou hast forgotten Jehovah thy God (who is bringing thee out of the land of Egypt, out of a house of servants;
15. who is causing thee to go in the great and the terrible wilderness -- burning serpent, and scorpion, and thirst -- where there is no water; who is bringing out to thee waters from the flinty rock;
16. who is causing thee to eat manna in the wilderness, which thy fathers have not known, in order to humble thee, and in order to try thee, to do thee good in thy latter end),
17. and thou hast said in thy heart, My power, and the might of my hand, hath made for me this wealth:
18. `And thou hast remembered Jehovah thy God, for He it [is] who is giving to thee power to make wealth, in order to establish His covenant which He hath sworn to thy fathers as [at] this day.
19. `And it hath been -- if thou really forget Jehovah thy God, and hast gone after other gods, and served them, and bowed thyself to them, I have testified against you to-day that ye do utterly perish;
20. as the nations whom Jehovah is destroying from your presence, so ye perish; because ye hearken not to the voice of Jehovah your God.

Psalms 37:5-11
5. Roll on Jehovah thy way, And trust upon Him, and He worketh,
6. And hath brought out as light thy righteousness, And thy judgment as noon-day.
7. Be silent for Jehovah, and stay thyself for Him, Do not fret because of him Who is making prosperous his way, Because of a man doing wicked devices.
8. Desist from anger, and forsake fury, Fret not thyself only to do evil.
9. For evil doers are cut off, As to those waiting on Jehovah, they possess the land.
10. And yet a little, and the wicked is not, And thou hast considered his place, and it is not.
11. And the humble do possess the land, And they have delighted themselves In the abundance of peace.

Proverbs 12:9-10
9. Better [is] the lightly esteemed who hath a servant, Than the self-honoured who lacketh bread.
10. The righteous knoweth the life of his beast, And the mercies of the wicked [are] cruel.

Luke 1:39-56
39. And Mary having arisen in those days, went to the hill-country, with haste, to a city of Judea,
40. and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.
41. And it came to pass, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe did leap in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit,
42. and spake out with a loud voice, and said, `Blessed [art] thou among women, and blessed [is] the fruit of thy womb;
43. and whence [is] this to me, that the mother of my Lord might come unto me?
44. for, lo, when the voice of thy salutation came to my ears, leap in gladness did the babe in my womb;
45. and happy [is] she who did believe, for there shall be a completion to the things spoken to her from the Lord.`
46. And Mary said, `My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47. And my spirit was glad on God my Saviour,
48. Because He looked on the lowliness of His maid-servant, For, lo, henceforth call me happy shall all the generations,
49. For He who is mighty did to me great things, And holy [is] His name,
50. And His kindness [is] to generations of generations, To those fearing Him,
51. He did powerfully with His arm, He scattered abroad the proud in the thought of their heart,
52. He brought down the mighty from thrones, And He exalted the lowly,
53. The hungry He did fill with good, And the rich He sent away empty,
54. He received again Israel His servant, To remember kindness,
55. As He spake unto our fathers, To Abraham and to his seed -- to the age.`
56. And Mary remained with her about three months, and turned back to her house.
