2 Kings 1:1-18
1. And Moab transgresseth against Israel after the death of Ahab,
2. and Ahaziah falleth through the lattice in his upper chamber that [is] in Samaria, and is sick, and sendeth messengers, and saith unto them, `Go ye, inquire of Baal-Zebub god of Ekron if I recover from this sickness.`
3. And a messenger of Jehovah hath spoken unto Elijah the Tishbite, `Rise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and speak unto them, Is it because there is not a God in Israel -- ye are going to inquire of Baal Zebub god of Ekron?
4. and therefore, thus said Jehovah, The bed whither thou hast gone up, thou dost not come down from it, for thou dost certainly die;` and Elijah goeth on.
5. And the messengers turn back unto him, and he saith unto them, `What [is] this -- ye have turned back!`
6. And they say unto him, `A man hath come up to meet us, and saith unto us, Go, turn back unto the king who sent you, and ye have said unto him, Thus said Jehovah, Is it because there is not a God in Israel -- thou art sending to inquire of Baal-Zebub god of Ekron? therefore, the bed whither thou hast gone up, thou dost not come down from it, for thou dost certainly die.`
7. And he saith unto them, `What [is] the fashion of the man who hath come up to meet you, and speaketh unto you these words?`
8. And they say unto him, `A man -- hairy, and a girdle of skin girt about his loins;` and he saith, `He [is] Elijah the Tishbite.`
9. And he sendeth unto him a head of fifty and his fifty, and he goeth up unto him (and lo, he is sitting on the top of the hill), and he speaketh unto him, `O man of God, the king hath spoken, Come down.`
10. And Elijah answereth and speaketh unto the head of the fifty, `And if I [am] a man of God, fire doth come down from the heavens, and consume thee and thy fifty;` and fire cometh down from the heavens, and consumeth him and his fifty.
11. And he turneth and sendeth unto him another head of fifty and his fifty, and he answereth and speaketh unto him, `O man of God, thus said the king, Haste, come down.`
12. And Elijah answereth and speaketh unto them, `If I [am] a man of God, fire doth come down from the heavens, and consume thee and thy fifty;` and fire of God cometh down from the heavens, and consumeth him and his fifty.
13. And he turneth and sendeth a third head of fifty and his fifty, and the third head of fifty goeth up, and cometh in, and boweth on his knees over-against Elijah, and maketh supplication unto him, and speaketh unto him, `O man of God, let be precious, I pray thee, my soul and the soul of thy servants -- these fifty -- in thine eyes.
14. Lo, come down hath fire from the heavens, and consumeth the two heads of the former fifties and their fifties; and, now, let my soul be precious in thine eyes.`
15. And a messenger of Jehovah speaketh unto Elijah, `Go down with him, be not afraid of him;` and he riseth and goeth down with him unto the king,
16. and speaketh unto him, `Thus said Jehovah, Because that thou hast sent messengers to inquire of Baal-Zebub god of Ekron -- is it because there is not a God in Israel to inquire of His word? therefore, the bed whither thou hast gone up -- thou dost not come down from it, for thou dost certainly die.`
17. And he dieth, according to the word of Jehovah that Elijah spake, and Jehoram reigneth in his stead, in the second year of Jehoram son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, for he had no son.
18. And the rest of the matters of Ahaziah that he did, are they not written on the book of the Chronicles of the kings of Israel?

2 Kings 2:1-25
1. And it cometh to pass, at Jehovah`s taking up Elijah in a whirlwind to the heavens, that Elijah goeth, and Elisha, from Gilgal,
2. and Elijah saith unto Elisha, `Abide, I pray thee, here, for Jehovah hath sent me unto Beth-El;` and Elisha saith, `Jehovah liveth, and thy soul liveth, if I leave thee;` and they go down to Beth-El.
3. And sons of the prophets who [are] in Beth-El come out unto Elisha, and say unto him, `Hast thou known that to-day Jehovah is taking thy lord from thy head?` and he saith, `I also have known -- keep silent.`
4. And Elijah saith to him, `Elisha, abide, I pray thee, here, for Jehovah hath sent me to Jericho;` and he saith, `Jehovah liveth, and thy soul liveth, if I leave thee;` and they come in to Jericho.
5. And sons of the prophets who [are] in Jericho come nigh unto Elisha, and say unto him, `Hast thou known that to-day Jehovah is taking thy lord from thy head?` and he saith, `I also have known -- keep silent.`
6. And Elijah saith to him, `Abide, I pray thee, here, for Jehovah hath sent me to the Jordan;` and he saith, `Jehovah liveth, and thy soul liveth, if I leave thee;` and they go on both of them,
7. -- and fifty men of the sons of the prophets have gone on, and stand over-against afar off -- and both of them have stood by the Jordan.
8. And Elijah taketh his robe, and wrappeth [it] together, and smiteth the waters, and they are halved, hither and thither, and they pass over both of them on dry land.
9. And it cometh to pass, at their passing over, that Elijah hath said unto Elisha, `Ask, what do I do for thee before I am taken from thee?` and Elisha saith, `Then let there be, I pray thee, a double portion of thy spirit unto me;`
10. and he saith, `Thou hast asked a hard thing; if thou dost see me taken from thee, it is to thee so; and if not, it is not.`
11. And it cometh to pass, they are going, going on and speaking, and lo, a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and they separate between them both, and Elijah goeth up in a whirlwind, to the heavens.
12. And Elisha is seeing, and he is crying, `My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and its horsemen;` and he hath not seen him again; and he taketh hold on his garments, and rendeth them into two pieces.
13. And he taketh up the robe of Elijah, that fell from off him, and turneth back and standeth on the edge of the Jordan,
14. and he taketh the robe of Elijah that fell from off him, and smiteth the waters, and saith, `Where [is] Jehovah, God of Elijah -- even He?` and he smiteth the waters, and they are halved, hither and thither, and Elisha passeth over.
15. And they see him -- the sons of the prophets who [are] in Jericho -- over-against, and they say, `Rested hath the spirit of Elijah on Elisha;` and they come to meet him, and bow themselves to him to the earth,
16. and say unto him, `Lo, we pray thee, there are with thy servants fifty men, sons of valour: let them go, we pray thee, and they seek thy lord, lest the Spirit of Jehovah hath taken him up, and doth cast him on one of the hills, or into one of the valleys;` and he saith, `Ye do not send.`
17. And they press upon him, till he is ashamed, and he saith, `Send ye;` and they send fifty men, and they seek three days, and have not found him;
18. and they turn back unto him -- and he is abiding in Jericho -- and he saith unto them, `Did I not say unto you, Do not go?`
19. And the men of the city say unto Elisha, `Lo, we pray thee, the site of the city [is] good, as my lord seeth, and the waters [are] bad, and the earth sterile.`
20. And he saith, `Bring to me a new dish, and place there salt;` and they bring [it] unto him,
21. and he goeth out unto the source of the waters, and casteth there salt, and saith, `Thus said Jehovah, I have given healing to these waters; there is not thence any more death and sterility.`
22. And the waters are healed unto this day, according to the word of Elisha, that he spake.
23. And he goeth up thence to Beth-El, and he is going up in the way, and little youths have come out from the city, and scoff at him, and say to him, `Go up, bald-head! go up, bald-head!`
24. And he looketh behind him, and seeth them, and declareth them vile in the name of Jehovah, and two bears come out of the forest, and rend of them forty and two lads.
25. And he goeth thence unto the hill of Carmel, and thence he hath turned back to Samaria.

Psalms 71:9-16
9. Cast me not off at the time of old age, According to the consumption of my power forsake me not.
10. For mine enemies have spoken against me, And those watching my soul have taken counsel together,
11. Saying, `God hath forsaken him, Pursue and catch him, for there is no deliverer.`
12. O God, be not far from me, O my God, for my help make haste.
13. They are ashamed, they are consumed, Who are opposing my soul, They are covered [with] reproach and blushing, Who are seeking my evil,
14. And I continually do wait with hope, And have added unto all Thy praise.
15. My mouth recounteth Thy righteousness, All the day Thy salvation, For I have not known the numbers.
16. I come in the might of the Lord Jehovah, I mention Thy righteousness -- Thine only.

Proverbs 18:6-8
6. The lips of a fool enter into strife, And his mouth for stripes calleth.
7. The mouth of a fool [is] ruin to him, And his lips [are] the snare of his soul.
8. The words of a tale-bearer [are] as self-inflicted wounds, And they have gone down [to] the inner parts of the heart.

John 16:1-33
1. `These things I have spoken to you, that ye may not be stumbled,
2. out of the synagogues they will put you; but an hour doth come, that every one who hath killed you, may think to offer service unto God;
3. and these things they will do to you, because they did not know the Father, nor me.
4. `But these things I have spoken to you, that when the hour may come, ye may remember them, that I said [them] to you, and these things to you from the beginning I did not say, because I was with you;
5. and now I go away to Him who sent me, and none of you doth ask me, Whither dost thou go?
6. but because these things I have said to you, the sorrow hath filled your heart.
7. `But I tell you the truth; it is better for you that I go away, for if I may not go away, the Comforter will not come unto you, and if I go on, I will send Him unto you;
8. and having come, He will convict the world concerning sin, and concerning righteousness, and concerning judgment;
9. concerning sin indeed, because they do not believe in me;
10. and concerning righteousness, because unto my Father I go away, and no more do ye behold me;
11. and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world hath been judged.
12. `I have yet many things to say to you, but ye are not able to bear [them] now;
13. and when He may come -- the Spirit of truth -- He will guide you to all the truth, for He will not speak from Himself, but as many things as He will hear He will speak, and the coming things He will tell you;
14. He will glorify me, because of mine He will take, and will tell to you.
15. `All things, as many as the Father hath, are mine; because of this I said, That of mine He will take, and will tell to you;
16. a little while, and ye do not behold me, and again a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go away unto the Father.`
17. Therefore said [some] of his disciples one to another, `What is this that he saith to us, A little while, and ye do not behold me, and again a little while, and ye shall see me, and, Because I go away unto the Father?`
18. they said then, `What is this he saith -- the little while? we have not known what he saith.`
19. Jesus, therefore, knew that they were wishing to ask him, and he said to them, `Concerning this do ye seek one with another, because I said, A little while, and you do not behold me, and again a little while, and ye shall see me?
20. verily, verily, I say to you, that ye shall weep and lament, and the world will rejoice; and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow joy will become.
21. `The woman, when she may bear, hath sorrow, because her hour did come, and when she may bear the child, no more doth she remember the anguish, because of the joy that a man was born to the world.
22. `And ye, therefore, now, indeed, have sorrow; and again I will see you, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one doth take from you,
23. and in that day ye will question me nothing; verily, verily, I say to you, as many things as ye may ask of the Father in my name, He will give you;
24. till now ye did ask nothing in my name; ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
25. `These things in similitudes I have spoken to you, but there cometh an hour when no more in similitudes will I speak to you, but freely of the Father, will tell you.
26. `In that day, in my name ye will make request, and I do not say to you that I will ask the Father for you,
27. for the Father himself doth love you, because me ye have loved, and ye have believed that I from God came forth;
28. I came forth from the Father, and have come to the world; again I leave the world, and go on unto the Father.`
29. His disciples say to him, `Lo, now freely thou dost speak, and no similitude speakest thou;
30. now we have known that thou hast known all things, and hast no need that any one do question thee; in this we believe that from God thou didst come forth.`
31. Jesus answered them, `Now do ye believe? lo, there doth come an hour,
32. and now it hath come, that ye may be scattered, each to his own things, and me ye may leave alone, and I am not alone, because the Father is with me;
33. these things I have spoken to you, that in me ye may have peace, in the world ye shall have tribulation, but take courage -- I have overcome the world.`
