2 Kings 25:1-30
1. And it cometh to pass, in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, in the tenth of the month, come hath Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, he and all his force, against Jerusalem, and encampeth against it, and buildeth against it a fortification round about.
2. And the city entereth into siege till the eleventh year of king Zedekiah,
3. on the ninth of the month -- when the famine is severe in the city, and there hath not been bread for the people of the land,
4. then the city is broken up, and all the men of war [go] by night the way of the gate, between the two walls that [are] by the garden of the king, and the Chaldeans [are] against the city round about, and [the king] goeth the way of the plain.
5. And the force of the Chaldeans pursue after the king, and overtake him in the plains of Jericho, and all his force have been scattered from him;
6. and they seize the king, and bring him up unto the king of Babylon, to Riblah, and they speak with him -- judgment.
7. And the sons of Zedekiah they have slaughtered before his eyes, and the eyes of Zedekiah he hath blinded, and bindeth him with brazen fetters, and they bring him to Babylon.
8. And in the fifth month, on the seventh of the month (it [is] the nineteenth year of king Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon), hath Nebuzaradan chief of the executioners, servant of the king of Babylon, come to Jerusalem,
9. and he burneth the house of Jehovah, and the house of the king, and all the houses of Jerusalem, yea, every great house he hath burned with fire;
10. and the walls of Jerusalem round about have all the forces of the Chaldeans, who [are] with the chief of the executioners, broken down.
11. And the rest of the people, those left in the city, and those falling who have fallen to the king of Babylon, and the rest of the multitude, hath Nebuzaradan chief of the executioners removed;
12. and of the poor of the land hath the chief of the executioners left for vine-dressers and for husbandmen.
13. And the pillars of brass that [are] in the house of Jehovah, and the bases, and the sea of brass, that [is] in the house of Jehovah, have the Chaldeans broken in pieces, and bear away their brass to Babylon.
14. And the pots, and the shovels, and the snuffers, and the spoons, and all the vessels of brass with which they minister they have taken,
15. and the fire-pans, and the bowls that [are] wholly of silver, hath the chief of the executioners taken.
16. The two pillars, the one sea, and the bases that Solomon made for the house of Jehovah, there was no weighing of the brass of all these vessels;
17. eighteen cubits [is] the height of the one pillar, and the chapiter on it [is] of brass, and the height of the chapiter [is] three cubits, and the net and the pomegranates [are] on the chapiter round about -- the whole [is] of brass; and like these hath the second pillar, with the net.
18. And the chief of the executioners taketh Seraiah the head priest, and Zephaniah the second priest, and the three keepers of the threshold,
19. and out of the city he hath taken a certain eunuch who is appointed over the men of war, and five men of those seeing the king`s face who have been found in the city, and the head scribe of the host, who mustereth the people of the land, and sixty men of the people of the land who are found in the city,
20. and Nebuzaradan chief of the executioners taketh them, and causeth them to go unto the king of Babylon, to Libnah,
21. and the king of Babylon smiteth them, and putteth them to death in Riblah, in the land of Hamath, and he removeth Judah from off its land.
22. And the people that is left in the land of Judah whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon hath left -- he appointeth over them Gedaliah son of Ahikam, son of Shaphan.
23. And all the heads of the forces hear -- they and the men -- that the king of Babylon hath appointed Gedaliah, and they come in unto Gedaliah, to Mizpah, even Ishmael son of Nethaniah, and Johanan son of Kareah, and Seraiah son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite, and Jaazaniah son of the Maachathite -- they and their men;
24. and Gedaliah sweareth to them, and to their men, and saith to them, `Be not afraid of the servants of the Chaldeans, dwell in the land and serve the king of Babylon, and it is good for you.`
25. And it cometh to pass, in the seventh month, come hath Ishmael son of Nathaniah, son of Elishama of the seed of the kingdom, and ten men with him, and they smite Gedaliah, and he dieth, and the Jews and the Chaldeans who have been with him in Mizpah.
26. And all the people rise, from small even unto great, and the heads of the forces, and come in to Egypt, for they have been afraid of the presence of the Chaldeans.
27. And it cometh to pass, in the thirty and seventh year of the removal of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, in the twenty and seventh of the month hath Evil-Merodach king of Babylon lifted up, in the year of his reigning, the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah, out of the house of restraint,
28. and speaketh with him good things and putteth his throne above the throne of the kings who [are] with him in Babylon,
29. and hath changed the garments of his restraint, and he hath eaten bread continually before him all days of his life,
30. and his allowance -- a continual allowance -- hath been given to him from the king, the matter of a day in its day, all days of his life.

Psalms 75:1-10
1. To the Overseer. -- `Destroy not.` -- A Psalm of Asaph. -- A Song. We have given thanks to Thee, O God, We have given thanks, and near [is] Thy name, They have recounted Thy wonders.
2. When I receive an appointment, I -- I do judge uprightly.
3. Melted is the earth and all its inhabitants, I -- I have pondered its pillars. Selah.
4. I have said to the boastful, `Be not boastful,` And to the wicked, `Raise not up a horn.`
5. Raise not up on high your horn, (Ye speak with a stiff neck.)
6. For not from the east, or from the west, Nor from the wilderness -- [is] elevation.
7. But God [is] judge, This He maketh low -- and this He lifteth up.
8. For a cup [is] in the hand of Jehovah, And the wine hath foamed, It is full of mixture, and He poureth out of it, Only its dregs wring out, and drink, Do all the wicked of the earth,
9. And I -- I declare [it] to the age, I sing praise to the God of Jacob.
10. And all horns of the wicked I cut off, Exalted are the horns of the righteous!

Proverbs 19:4-5
4. Wealth addeth many friends, And the poor from his neighbour is separated.
5. A false witness is not acquitted, Whoso breatheth out lies is not delivered.

Acts 3:1-26
1. And Peter and John were going up at the same time to the temple, at the hour of the prayer, the ninth [hour],
2. and a certain man, being lame from the womb of his mother, was being carried, whom they were laying every day at the gate of the temple, called Beautiful, to ask a kindness from those entering into the temple,
3. who, having seen Peter and John about to go into the temple, was begging to receive a kindness.
4. And Peter, having looked stedfastly toward him with John, said, `Look toward us;`
5. and he was giving heed to them, looking to receive something from them;
6. and Peter said, `Silver and gold I have none, but what I have, that I give to thee; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and be walking.`
7. And having seized him by the right hand, he raised [him] up, and presently his feet and ankles were strengthened,
8. and springing up, he stood, and was walking, and did enter with them into the temple, walking and springing, and praising God;
9. and all the people saw him walking and praising God,
10. they were knowing him also that this it was who for a kindness was sitting at the Beautiful gate of the temple, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what hath happened to him.
11. And at the lame man who was healed holding Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch called Solomon`s -- greatly amazed,
12. and Peter having seen, answered unto the people, `Men, Israelites! why wonder ye at this? or on us why look ye so earnestly, as if by our own power or piety we have made him to walk?
13. `The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, did glorify His child Jesus, whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, he having given judgment to release [him],
14. and ye the Holy and Righteous One did deny, and desired a man -- a murderer -- to be granted to you,
15. and the Prince of the life ye did kill, whom God did raise out of the dead, of which we are witnesses;
16. and on the faith of his name, this one whom ye see and have known, his name made strong, even the faith that [is] through him did give to him this perfect soundness before you all.
17. `And now, brethren, I have known that through ignorance ye did [it], as also your rulers;
18. and God, what things before He had declared through the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ should suffer, He did thus fulfil;
19. reform ye, therefore, and turn back, for your sins being blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,
20. and He may send Jesus Christ who before hath been preached to you,
21. whom it behoveth heaven, indeed, to receive till times of a restitution of all things, of which God spake through the mouth of all His holy prophets from the age.
22. `For Moses, indeed, unto the fathers said -- A prophet to you shall the Lord your God raise up out of your brethren, like to me; him shall ye hear in all things, as many as he may speak unto you;
23. and it shall be, every soul that may not hear that prophet shall be utterly destroyed out of the people;
24. and also all the prophets from Samuel and those following in order, as many as spake, did also foretell of these days.
25. `Ye are sons of the prophets, and of the covenant that God made unto our fathers, saying unto Abraham: And in thy seed shall be blessed all the families of the earth;
26. to you first, God, having raised up His child Jesus, did send him, blessing you, in the turning away of each one from your evil ways.`
