Deuteronomy 11:1-32
1. `And thou hast loved Jehovah thy God, and kept His charge, and His statutes, and His judgments, and His commands, all the days;
2. and ye have known to-day -- for it is not your sons who have not known, and who have not seen the chastisement of Jehovah your God, His greatness, His strong hand, and His stretched-out arm,
3. and His signs, and His doings, which He hath done in the midst of Egypt, to Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to all his land;
4. and that which He hath done to the force of Egypt, to its horses, and to its chariot, when He hath caused the waters of the Red Sea to flow against their faces in their pursuing after them, and Jehovah destroyeth them, unto this day;
5. and that which He hath done to you in the wilderness, till your coming in unto this place;
6. and that which He hath done to Dathan, and to Abiram, sons of Eliab, sons of Reuben, when the earth hath opened her mouth and swalloweth them, and their houses, and their tents, and all that liveth, which is at their feet, in the midst of all Israel:
7. `-- But [it is] your eyes which are seeing all the great work of Jehovah, which He hath done;
8. and ye have kept all the command which I am commanding thee to-day, so that ye are strong, and have gone in, and possessed the land whither ye are passing over to possess it,
9. and so that ye prolong days on the ground which Jehovah hath sworn to your fathers to give to them and to their seed -- a land flowing with milk and honey.
10. `For the land whither thou art going in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt whence ye have come out, where thou sowest thy seed, and hast watered with thy foot, as a garden of the green herb;
11. but the land whither ye are passing over to possess it, [is] a land of hills and valleys; of the rain of the heavens it drinketh water;
12. a land which Jehovah thy God is searching; continually [are] the eyes of Jehovah thy God upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the latter end of the year.
13. `And it hath been -- if thou hearken diligently unto My commands which I am commanding you to-day, to love Jehovah your God, and to serve Him with all your heart, and with all your soul --
14. that I have given the rain of your land in its season -- sprinkling and gathered -- and thou hast gathered thy corn, and thy new wine, and thine oil,
15. and I have given herbs in thy field for thy cattle, and thou hast eaten, and been satisfied.
16. `Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be enticed, and ye have turned aside, and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them,
17. and the anger of Jehovah hath burned against you, and He hath restrained the heavens, and there is no rain, and the ground doth not give her increase, and ye have perished hastily from off the good land which Jehovah is giving to you.
18. `And ye have placed these my words on your heart, and on your soul, and have bound them for a sign on your hand, and they have been for frontlets between your eyes;
19. and ye have taught them to your sons, by speaking of them in thy sitting in thy house, and in thy going in the way, and in thy lying down, and in thy rising up,
20. and hast written them on the side-posts of thy house, and on thy gates,
21. so that your days are multiplied, and the days of your sons, on the ground which Jehovah hath sworn to your fathers to give to them, as the days of the heavens on the earth.
22. `For, if ye diligently keep all this command which I am commanding you -- to do it, to love Jehovah your God, to walk in all His ways, and to cleave to Him,
23. then hath Jehovah dispossessed all these nations from before you, and ye have possessed nations, greater and mightier than you;
24. every place on which the sole of your foot treadeth is yours; from the wilderness, and Lebanon, from the river, the river Phrat, even unto the farther sea is your border;
25. no man doth station himself in your presence; your dread and your fear doth Jehovah your God put on the face of all the land on which ye tread, as He hath spoken to you.
26. `See, I am setting before you to-day a blessing and a reviling:
27. the blessing, when ye hearken unto the commands of Jehovah your God, which I am commanding you to-day;
28. and the reviling, if ye do not hearken unto the commands of Jehovah your God, and have turned aside out of the way which I am commanding you to-day, to go after other gods which ye have not known.
29. `And it hath been, when Jehovah thy God doth bring thee in unto the land whither thou art going in to possess it, that thou hast given the blessing on mount Gerizim, and the reviling on mount Ebal;
30. are they not beyond the Jordan, behind the way of the going in of the sun, in the land of the Canaanite, who is dwelling in the plain over-against Gilgal, near the oaks of Moreh?
31. for ye are passing over the Jordan to go in to possess the land which Jehovah your God is giving to you; and ye have possessed it, and dwelt in it,
32. and observed to do all the statutes and the judgments which I am setting before you to day.

Deuteronomy 12:1-31
1. `These [are] the statutes and the judgments which ye observe to do in the land which Jehovah, God of thy fathers, hath given to thee to possess it, all the days that ye are living on the ground:
2. ye do utterly destroy all the places where the nations which ye are dispossessing served their gods, on the high mountains, and on the heights, and under every green tree;
3. and ye have broken down their altars, and shivered their standing pillars, and their shrines ye burn with fire, and graven images of their gods ye cut down, and have destroyed their name out of that place.
4. `Ye do not do so to Jehovah your God;
5. but unto the place which Jehovah your God doth choose out of all your tribes to put His name there, to His tabernacle ye seek, and thou hast entered thither,
6. and hast brought in thither your burnt-offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and the heave-offering of your hand, and your vows, and your free-will offerings, and the firstlings of your herd and of your flock;
7. and ye have eaten there before Jehovah your God, and have rejoiced in every putting forth of your hand, ye and your households, with which Jehovah thy God hath blessed thee.
8. `Ye do not do according to all that we are doing here to-day, each anything that is right in his own eyes,
9. for ye have not come in hitherto unto the rest, and unto the inheritance, which Jehovah thy God is giving to thee;
10. and ye have passed over the Jordan, and have dwelt in the land which Jehovah your God is causing you to inherit, and He hath given rest to you from all your enemies round about, and ye have dwelt confidently:
11. `And it hath been, the place on which Jehovah your God doth fix to cause His name to tabernacle there, thither ye bring in all that which I am commanding you, your burnt-offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave-offering of your hand, and all the choice of your vows which ye vow to Jehovah;
12. and ye have rejoiced before Jehovah your God, ye, and your sons, and your daughters, and your men-servants, and your handmaids, and the Levite who [is] within your gates, for he hath no part and inheritance with you.
13. `Take heed to thee, lest thou cause thy burnt-offerings to ascend in any place which thou seest,
14. except in the place which Jehovah doth choose in one of thy tribes, there thou dost cause thy burnt-offerings to ascend, and there thou dost do all that which I am commanding thee.
15. `Only, with all the desire of thy soul thou dost sacrifice, and hast eaten flesh according to the blessing of Jehovah thy God which He hath given to thee, in all thy gates; the unclean and the clean do eat it, as of the roe, and as of the hart.
16. `Only, the blood ye do not eat -- on the earth thou dost pour it as water;
17. thou art not able to eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, and of thy new wine, and thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herd and of thy flock, and any of thy vows which thou vowest, and thy free-will offerings, and heave-offering of thy hand;
18. but before Jehovah thy God thou dost eat it, in the place which Jehovah thy God doth fix on, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy man-servant, and thy handmaid, and the Levite who [is] within thy gates, and thou hast rejoiced before Jehovah thy God in every putting forth of thy hand;
19. take heed to thee lest thou forsake the Levite all thy days on thy ground.
20. `When Jehovah thy God doth enlarge thy border, as He hath spoken to thee, and thou hast said, Let me eat flesh -- for thy soul desireth to eat flesh -- of all the desire of thy soul thou dost eat flesh.
21. `When the place is far from thee which Jehovah thy God doth choose to put His name there, then thou hast sacrificed of thy herd and of thy flock which Jehovah hath given to thee, as I have commanded thee, and hast eaten within thy gates, of all the desire of thy soul;
22. only, as the roe and the hart is eaten, so dost thou eat it; the unclean and the clean doth alike eat it.
23. `Only, be sure not to eat the blood, for the blood [is] the life, and thou dost not eat the life with the flesh;
24. thou dost not eat it, on the earth thou dost pour it as water;
25. thou dost not eat it, in order that it may be well with thee, and with thy sons after thee, when thou dost that which [is] right in the eyes of Jehovah.
26. `Only, thy holy things which thou hast, and thy vows, thou dost take up, and hast gone in unto the place which Jehovah doth choose,
27. and thou hast made thy burnt-offerings -- the flesh and the blood -- on the altar of Jehovah thy God; and the blood of thy sacrifices is poured out by the altar of Jehovah thy God, and the flesh thou dost eat.
28. Observe, and thou hast obeyed all these words which I am commanding thee, in order that it may be well with thee and with thy sons after thee -- to the age, when thou dost that which [is] good and right in the eyes of Jehovah thy God.
29. `When Jehovah thy God doth cut off the nations -- whither thou art going in to possess them -- from thy presence, and thou hast possessed them, and hast dwelt in their land --
30. take heed to thee, lest thou be snared after them, after their being destroyed out of thy presence, and lest thou enquire about their gods, saying, How do these nations serve their gods, and I do so -- even I?
31. `Thou dost not do so to Jehovah thy God; for every abomination of Jehovah which He is hating they have done to their gods, for even their sons and their daughters they burn with fire to their gods.

Psalms 37:18-22
18. Jehovah knoweth the days of the perfect, And their inheritance is -- to the age.
19. They are not ashamed in a time of evil, And in days of famine they are satisfied.
20. But the wicked perish, and the enemies of Jehovah, As the preciousness of lambs, Have been consumed, In smoke they have been consumed.
21. The wicked is borrowing and repayeth not, And the righteous is gracious and giving.
22. For His blessed ones do possess the land, And His reviled ones are cut off.

Proverbs 12:12-14
12. The wicked hath desired the net of evil doers, And the root of the righteous giveth.
13. In transgression of the lips [is] the snare of the wicked, And the righteous goeth out from distress.
14. From the fruit of the mouth [is] one satisfied [with] good, And the deed of man`s hands returneth to him.

Luke 2:1-24
1. And it came to pass in those days, there went forth a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world be enrolled --
2. this enrollment first came to pass when Cyrenius was governor of Syria --
3. and all were going to be enrolled, each to his proper city,
4. and Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, that is called Bethlehem, because of his being of the house and family of David,
5. to enroll himself with Mary his betrothed wife, being with child.
6. And it came to pass, in their being there, the days were fulfilled for her bringing forth,
7. and she brought forth her son -- the first-born, and wrapped him up, and laid him down in the manger, because there was not for them a place in the guest-chamber.
8. And there were shepherds in the same region, lodging in the field, and keeping the night-watches over their flock,
9. and lo, a messenger of the Lord stood over them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they feared a great fear.
10. And the messenger said to them, `Fear not, for lo, I bring you good news of great joy, that shall be to all the people --
11. because there was born to you to-day a Saviour -- who is Christ the Lord -- in the city of David,
12. and this [is] to you the sign: Ye shall find a babe wrapped up, lying in the manger.`
13. And suddenly there came with the messenger a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying,
14. `Glory in the highest to God, and upon earth peace, among men -- good will.`
15. And it came to pass, when the messengers were gone away from them to the heavens, that the men, the shepherds, said unto one another, `We may go over indeed unto Bethlehem, and see this thing that hath come to pass, that the Lord did make known to us.`
16. And they came, having hasted, and found both Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in the manger,
17. and having seen, they made known abroad concerning the saying spoken to them concerning the child.
18. And all who heard, did wonder concerning the things spoken by the shepherds unto them;
19. and Mary was preserving all these things, pondering in her heart;
20. and the shepherds turned back, glorifying and praising God, for all those things they heard and saw, as it was spoken unto them.
21. And when eight days were fulfilled to circumcise the child, then was his name called Jesus, having been so called by the messenger before his being conceived in the womb.
22. And when the days of their purification were fulfilled, according to the law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem, to present to the Lord,
23. as it hath been written in the Law of the Lord, -- `Every male opening a womb shall be called holy to the Lord,`
24. and to give a sacrifice, according to that said in the Law of the Lord, `A pair of turtle-doves, or two young pigeons.`
