1 Chronicles 19:1-19
1. And it cometh to pass after this, that Nahash king of the sons of Ammon dieth, and his son reigneth in his stead,
2. and David saith, `I do kindness with Hanun son of Nahash, for his father did with me kindness;` and David sendeth messengers to comfort him concerning his father. And the servants of David come in unto the land of the sons of Ammon, unto Hanun, to comfort him,
3. and the heads of the sons of Ammon say to Hanun, `Is David honouring thy father, in thine eyes, because he hath sent to thee comforters? in order to search, and to overthrow, and to spy out, the land, have not his servants come in unto thee?`
4. And Hanun taketh the servants of David, and shaveth them, and cutteth their long robes in the midst, unto the buttocks, and sendeth them away.
5. And [some] go, and declare to David concerning the men, and he sendeth to meet them -- for the men have been greatly ashamed -- and the king saith, `Dwell in Jericho till that your beard is grown, then ye have returned.`
6. And the sons of Ammon see that they have made themselves abhorred by David, and Hanun and the sons of Ammon send a thousand talents of silver, to hire to them, from Aram-Naharaim, and from Aram-Maachah, and from Zobah, chariots and horsemen;
7. and they hire to them two and thirty thousand chariots, and the king of Maachah and his people, and they come in and encamp before Medeba, and the sons of Ammon have been gathered out of their cities, and come in to the battle.
8. And David heareth, and sendeth Joab, and all the host of the mighty men,
9. and the sons of Ammon come out and set battle in array at the opening of the city, and the kings who have come [are] by themselves in the field.
10. And Joab seeth that the front of the battle hath been unto him, before and behind, and he chooseth out of all the choice in Israel, and setteth in array to meet Aram,
11. and the remnant of the people he hath given into the hand of Abishai his brother, and they set in array to meet the sons of Ammon.
12. And he saith, `If Aram be stronger than I, then thou hast been to me for salvation; and if the sons of Ammon be stronger than thou, then I have saved thee;
13. be strong, and we strengthen ourselves, for our people, and for the cities of our God, and Jehovah doth that which is good in His eyes.`
14. And Joab draweth nigh, and the people who [are] with him, before Aram to battle, and they flee from his face;
15. and the sons of Ammon have seen that Aram hath fled, and they flee -- they also -- from the face of Abishai his brother, and go in to the city. And Joab cometh in to Jerusalem.
16. And Aram seeth that they have been smitten before Israel, and send messengers, and bring out Aram that [is] beyond the River, and Shophach head of the host of Hadarezer [is] before them.
17. And it is declared to David, and he gathereth all Israel, and passeth over the Jordan, and cometh in unto them, and setteth in array against them; yea, David setteth in array the battle to meet Aram, and they fight with him;
18. and Aram fleeth from the face of Israel, and David slayeth of Aram seven thousand charioteers, and forty thousand footmen, and Shophach head of the host he hath put to death.
19. And the servants of Hadarezer see that they have been smitten before Israel, and they make peace with David and serve him, and Aram hath not been willing to help the sons of Ammon any more.

1 Chronicles 20:1-8
1. And it cometh to pass, at the time of the turn of the year -- at the time of the going out of the messengers -- that Joab leadeth out the force of the host, and destroyeth the land of the sons of Ammon, and cometh in and beseigeth Rabbah -- David is abiding in Jerusalem -- and Joab smiteth Rabbah, and breaketh it down.
2. And David taketh the crown of their king from off his head, and findeth it [in] weight a talent of gold, and in it a precious stone, and it is on the head of David: and spoil of the city he hath brought out very much,
3. and the people who [are] in it he hath brought out, and setteth to the saw, and to cutting instruments of iron, and to axes; and thus doth David to all cities of the sons of Ammon, and David turneth back, and all the people, to Jerusalem.
4. And it cometh to pass, after this, that there remaineth war in Gezer with the Philistines, then hath Sibbechai the Hushathite smitten Sippai, of the children of the giant, and they are humbled.
5. And there is again war with the Philistines, and Elhanan son of Jair smiteth Lahmi, brother of Goliath the Gittite, the wood of whose spear [is] like a beam of weavers.
6. And there is again war in Gath, and there is a man of measure, and his fingers and his toes [are] six and six, twenty and four, and also, he hath been born to the giant.
7. And he reproacheth Israel, and smite him doth Jonathan son of Shimea, brother of David.
8. These were born to the giant in Gath, and they fall by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.

Psalms 78:26-33
26. He causeth an east wind to journey in the heavens, And leadeth by His strength a south wind,
27. And He raineth on them flesh as dust, And as sand of the seas -- winged fowl,
28. And causeth [it] to fall in the midst of His camp, Round about His tabernacles.
29. And they eat, and are greatly satisfied, And their desire He bringeth to them.
30. They have not been estranged from their desire, Yet [is] their food in their mouth,
31. And the anger of God hath gone up against them, And He slayeth among their fat ones, And youths of Israel He caused to bend.
32. With all this they have sinned again, And have not believed in His wonders.
33. And He consumeth in vanity their days, And their years in trouble.

Proverbs 19:27-29
27. Cease, my son, to hear instruction -- To err from sayings of knowledge.
28. A worthless witness scorneth judgment, And the mouth of the wicked swalloweth iniquity.
29. Judgments have been prepared for scorners, And stripes for the back of fools!

Acts 8:26-40
26. And a messenger of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, `Arise, and go on toward the south, on the way that is going down from Jerusalem to Gaza,` -- this is desert.
27. And having arisen, he went on, and lo, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch, a man of rank, of Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who was over all her treasure, who had come to worship to Jerusalem;
28. he was also returning, and is sitting on his chariot, and he was reading the prophet Isaiah.
29. And the Spirit said to Philip, `Go near, and be joined to this chariot;`
30. and Philip having run near, heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, `Dost thou then know what thou dost read?`
31. and he said, `Why, how am I able, if some one may not guide me?` he called Philip also, having come up, to sit with him.
32. And the contents of the Writing that he was reading was this: `As a sheep unto slaughter he was led, and as a lamb before his shearer dumb, so he doth not open his mouth;
33. in his humiliation his judgment was taken away, and his generation -- who shall declare? because taken from the earth is his life.`
34. And the eunuch answering Philip said, `I pray thee, about whom doth the prophet say this? about himself, or about some other one?`
35. and Philip having opened his mouth, and having begun from this Writing, proclaimed good news to him -- Jesus.
36. And as they were going on the way, they came upon a certain water, and the eunuch said, `Lo, water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?`
37. [And Philip said, `If thou dost believe out of all the heart, it is lawful;` and he answering said, `I believe Jesus Christ to be the Son of God;`]
38. and he commanded the chariot to stand still, and they both went down to the water, both Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him;
39. and when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, and the eunuch saw him no more, for he was going on his way rejoicing;
40. and Philip was found at Azotus, and passing through, he was proclaiming good news to all the cities, till his coming to Cesarea.
