Joshua 1:1-18
1. And it cometh to pass after the death of Moses, servant of Jehovah, that Jehovah speaketh unto Joshua son of Nun, minister of Moses, saying,
2. `Moses my servant is dead, and now, rise, pass over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel.
3. `Every place on which the sole of your foot treadeth, to you I have given it, as I have spoken unto Moses.
4. From this wilderness and Lebanon, and unto the great river, the river Phrath, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great Sea -- the going in of the sun -- is your border.
5. `No man doth station himself before thee all days of thy life; as I have been with Moses, I am with thee, I do not fail thee, nor forsake thee;
6. be strong and courageous, for thou -- thou dost cause this people to inherit the land which I have sworn to their fathers to give to them.
7. `Only, be strong and very courageous, to observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded thee; thou dost not turn aside from it right or left, so that thou dost act wisely in every [place] whither thou goest;
8. the book of this law doth not depart out of thy mouth, and thou hast meditated in it by day and by night, so that thou dost observe to do according to all that is written in it, for then thou dost cause thy way to prosper, and then thou dost act wisely.
9. `Have not I commanded thee? be strong and courageous; be not terrified nor affrighted, for with thee [is] Jehovah thy God in every [place] whither thou goest.`
10. And Joshua commandeth the authorities of the people, saying,
11. `Pass over into the midst of the camp, and command the people, saying, Prepare for yourselves provision, for within three days ye are passing over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which Jehovah your God is giving to you to possess it.`
12. And to the Reubenite, and to the Gadite, and to the half of the tribe of Manasseh, hath Joshua spoken, saying,
13. `Remember the word which Moses, servant of Jehovah, commanded you, saying, Jehovah your God is giving rest to you, and He hath given to you this land;
14. your wives, your infants, and your substance, abide in the land which Moses hath given to you beyond the Jordan, and ye -- ye pass over by fifties, before your brethren, all the mighty ones of valour, and have helped them,
15. till that Jehovah giveth rest to your brethren as to yourselves, and they have possessed, even they, the land which Jehovah your God is giving to them; then ye have turned back to the land of your possession, and have possessed it, which Moses, servant of Jehovah, hath given to you beyond the Jordan, [at] the sun-rising.`
16. And they answer Joshua, saying, `All that thou hast commanded us we do; and unto every [place] whither thou dost send us, we go;
17. according to all that we hearkened unto Moses [in], so we hearken unto thee; surely Jehovah thy God is with thee as He hath been with Moses.
18. Any man who doth provoke thy mouth, and doth not hear thy words, in all that thou dost command him, is put to death; only, be strong and courageous.`

Joshua 2:1-24
1. And Joshua son of Nun sendeth from Shittim, two men, spies, silently, saying, `Go, see the land -- and Jericho;` and they go and come into the house of a woman, a harlot, and her name [is] Rahab, and they lie down there.
2. And it is told to the king of Jericho, saying, `Lo, men have come in hither to-night, from the sons of Israel, to search the land.
3. And the king of Jericho sendeth unto Rahab, saying, `Bring out the men who are coming in unto thee, who have come into thy house, for to search the whole of the land they have come in.
4. And the woman taketh the two men, and hideth them, and saith thus: `The men came in unto me, and I have not known whence they [are];
5. and it cometh to pass -- the gate is to [be] shut -- in the dark, and the men have gone out; I have not known whither the men have gone; pursue ye, hasten after them, for ye overtake them;`
6. and she hath caused them to go up on the roof, and hideth them with the flax wood, which is arranged for her on the roof.
7. And the men have pursued after them the way of the Jordan, by the fords, and the gate they have shut afterwards, when the pursuers have gone out after them.
8. And -- before they lie down -- she hath gone up unto them on the roof,
9. and she saith unto the men, `I have known that Jehovah hath given to you the land, and that your terror hath fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land have melted at your presence.
10. `For we have heard how Jehovah dried up the waters of the Red Sea at your presence, in your going out of Egypt, and that which ye have done to the two kings of the Amorite who [are] beyond the Jordan; to Sihon and to Og whom ye devoted.
11. And we hear, and melt doth our heart, and there hath not stood any more spirit in [any] man, from your presence, for Jehovah your God, He [is] God in the heavens above, and on the earth beneath.
12. `And now, swear ye, I pray you, to me by Jehovah -- because I have done with you kindness -- that ye have done, even ye, kindness with the house of my father, and have given to me a true token,
13. and have kept alive my father, and my mother, and my brothers, and my sisters, and all that they have, and have delivered our souls from death.`
14. And the men say to her, `Our soul for yours -- to die; if ye declare not this our matter, then it hath been, in Jehovah`s giving to us this land, that we have done with thee kindness and truth.`
15. And she causeth them to go down by a rope through the window, for her house [is] in the side of the wall, and in the wall she [is] dwelling;
16. and she saith to them, `To the mountain go, lest the pursuers come upon you; and ye have been hidden there three days till the turning back of the pursuers, and afterwards ye go on your way.`
17. And the men say unto her, `We are acquitted of this thine oath which thou hast caused us to swear:
18. lo, we are coming into the land, this line of scarlet thread thou dost bind to the window by which thou hast caused us to go down, and thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all the house of thy father thou dost gather unto thee, to the house;
19. and it hath been, any one who goeth out from the doors of thy house without, his blood [is] on his head, and we are innocent; and any one who is with thee in the house, his blood [is] on our head, if a hand is on him;
20. and if thou declare this our matter, then we have been acquitted from thine oath which thou hast caused us to swear.`
21. And she saith, `According unto your words, so it [is];` and she sendeth them away, and they go; and she bindeth the scarlet line to the window.
22. And they go, and come in to the mountain, and abide there three days until the pursuers have turned back; and the pursuers seek in all the way, and have not found.
23. And the two men turn back, and come down from the hill, and pass over, and come in unto Joshua son of Nun, and recount to him all that hath come upon them;
24. and they say unto Joshua, `Surely Jehovah hath given into our hand all the land; and also, all the inhabitants of the land have melted at our presence.`

Psalms 41:1-13
1. To the Overseer. -- A Psalm of David. O the happiness of him Who is acting wisely unto the poor, In a day of evil doth Jehovah deliver him.
2. Jehovah doth preserve him and revive him, He is happy in the land, And Thou givest him not into the will of his enemies.
3. Jehovah supporteth on a couch of sickness, All his bed Thou hast turned in his weakness.
4. I -- I said, `O Jehovah, favour me, Heal my soul, for I did sin against Thee,`
5. Mine enemies say evil of me: When he dieth -- his name hath perished!
6. And if he came to see -- vanity he speaketh, His heart gathereth iniquity to itself, He goeth out -- at the street he speaketh.
7. All hating me whisper together against me, Against me they devise evil to me:
8. A thing of Belial is poured out on him, And because he lay down he riseth not again.
9. Even mine ally, in whom I trusted, One eating my bread, made great the heel against me,
10. And Thou, Jehovah, favour me, And cause me to rise, And I give recompence to them.
11. By this I have known, That Thou hast delighted in me, Because my enemy shouteth not over me.
12. As to me, in mine integrity, Thou hast taken hold upon me, And causest me to stand before Thee to the age.
13. Blessed [is] Jehovah, God of Israel, From the age -- and unto the age. Amen and Amen.

Proverbs 13:15-16
15. Good understanding giveth grace, And the way of the treacherous [is] hard.
16. Every prudent one dealeth with knowledge, And a fool spreadeth out folly.

Luke 8:26-56
26. And they sailed down to the region of the Gadarenes, that is over-against Galilee,
27. and he having gone forth upon the land, there met him a certain man, out of the city, who had demons for a long time, and with a garment was not clothed, and in a house was not abiding, but in the tombs,
28. and having seen Jesus, and having cried out, he fell before him, and with a loud voice, said, `What -- to me and to thee, Jesus, Son of God Most High? I beseech thee, mayest thou not afflict me!`
29. For he commanded the unclean spirit to come forth from the man, for many times it had caught him, and he was being bound with chains and fetters -- guarded, and breaking asunder the bonds he was driven by the demons to the deserts.
30. And Jesus questioned him, saying, `What is thy name?` and he said, `Legion,` (because many demons were entered into him,)
31. and he was calling on him, that he may not command them to go away to the abyss,
32. and there was there a herd of many swine feeding in the mountain, and they were calling on him, that he might suffer them to enter into these, and he suffered them,
33. and the demons having gone forth from the man, did enter into the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep to the lake, and were choked.
34. And those feeding [them], having seen what was come to pass, fled, and having gone, told [it] to the city, and to the fields;
35. and they came forth to see what was come to pass, and they came unto Jesus, and found the man sitting, out of whom the demons had gone forth, clothed, and right-minded, at the feet of Jesus, and they were afraid;
36. and those also having seen [it], told them how the demoniac was saved.
37. And the whole multitude of the region of the Gadarenes round about asked him to go away from them, because with great fear they were pressed, and he having entered into the boat, did turn back.
38. And the man from whom the demons had gone forth was beseeching of him to be with him, and Jesus sent him away, saying,
39. `Turn back to thy house, and tell how great things God did to thee;` and he went away through all the city proclaiming how great things Jesus did to him.
40. And it came to pass, in the turning back of Jesus, the multitude received him, for they were all looking for him,
41. and lo, there came a man, whose name [is] Jairus, and he was a chief of the synagogue, and having fallen at the feet of Jesus, was calling on him to come to his house;
42. because he had an only daughter about twelve years [old], and she was dying. And in his going away, the multitudes were thronging him,
43. and a woman, having an issue of blood for twelve years, who, having spent on physicians all her living, was not able to be healed by any,
44. having come near behind, touched the fringe of his garment, and presently the issue of her blood stood.
45. And Jesus said, `Who [is] it that touched me?` and all denying, Peter and those with him said, `Master, the multitudes press thee, and throng [thee], and thou dost say, Who [is] it that touched me!`
46. And Jesus said, `Some one did touch me, for I knew power having gone forth from me.`
47. And the woman, having seen that she was not hid, trembling, came, and having fallen before him, for what cause she touched him declared to him before all the people, and how she was healed presently;
48. and he said to her, `Take courage, daughter, thy faith hath saved thee, be going on to peace.`
49. While he is yet speaking, there doth come a certain one from the chief of the synagogue`s [house], saying to him -- `Thy daughter hath died, harass not the Teacher;`
50. and Jesus having heard, answered him, saying, `Be not afraid, only believe, and she shall be saved.`
51. And having come to the house, he suffered no one to go in, except Peter, and James, and John, and the father of the child, and the mother;
52. and they were all weeping, and beating themselves for her, and he said, `Weep not, she did not die, but doth sleep;
53. and they were deriding him, knowing that she did die;
54. and he having put all forth without, and having taken hold of her hand, called, saying, `Child, arise;`
55. and her spirit came back, and she arose presently, and he directed that there be given to her to eat;
56. and her parents were amazed, but he charged them to say to no one what was come to pass.
