2 Chronicles 15:1-19
1. And upon Azariah son of Oded hath been the Spirit of God,
2. and he goeth out before Asa, and saith to him, `Hear, me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; Jehovah [is] with you -- in your being with Him, and if ye seek Him, He is found of you, and if ye forsake Him, He forsaketh you;
3. and many days [are] to Israel without a true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law,
4. and it turneth back in its distress unto Jehovah, God of Israel, and they seek Him, and He is found of them,
5. and in those times there is no peace to him who is going out, and to him who is coming in, for many troubles [are] on all the inhabitants of the lands,
6. and they have been beaten down, nation by nation, and city by city, for God hath troubled them with every adversity;
7. and ye, be ye strong, and let not your hands be feeble, for there is a reward for your work.`
8. And at Asa`s hearing these words, and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he hath strengthened himself, and doth cause the abominations to pass away out of all the land of Judah and Benjamin, and out of the cities that he hath captured from the hill-country of Ephraim, and reneweth the altar of Jehovah that [is] before the porch of Jehovah,
9. and gathereth all Judah and Benjamin, and the sojourners with them out of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and out of Simeon -- for they have fallen unto him from Israel in abundance, in their seeing that Jehovah his God [is] with him.
10. And they are gathered to Jerusalem in the third month of the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa,
11. and sacrifice to Jehovah on that day from the spoil they have brought in -- oxen seven hundred, and sheep seven thousand,
12. and they enter into a covenant to seek Jehovah, God of their fathers, with all their heart, and with all their soul,
13. and every one who doth not seek for Jehovah, God of Israel, is put to death, from small unto great, from man unto woman.
14. And they swear to Jehovah with a loud voice, and with shouting, and with trumpets, and with cornets,
15. and rejoice do all Judah concerning the oath, for with all their heart they have sworn, and with all their good-will they have sought Him, and He is found of them, and Jehovah giveth rest to them round about.
16. And also Maachah, mother of Asa the king -- he hath removed her from [being] mistress, in that she hath made for a shrine a horrible thing, and Asa cutteth down her horrible thing, and beateth [it] small, and burneth [it] by the brook Kidron:
17. yet the high places have not turned aside from Israel; only, the heart of Asa hath been perfect all his days.
18. And he bringeth in the sanctified things of his father, and his own sanctified things, to the house of God, silver, and gold, and vessels.
19. And war hath not been till the thirty and fifth year of the reign of Asa.

2 Chronicles 16:1-14
1. In the thirty and sixth year of the reign of Asa, come up hath Baasha king of Israel, against Judah, and buildeth Ramah, so as not to permit any going out and coming in to Asa king of Judah.
2. And Asa bringeth out silver and gold from the treasures of the house of Jehovah, and of the house of the king, and sendeth unto Ben-Hadad king of Aram, who is dwelling in Damascus, saying,
3. `A covenant [is] between me and thee, and between my father and thy father, lo, I have sent to thee silver and gold; go, break thy covenant with Baasha king of Israel, and he doth go up from off me.`
4. And Ben-Hadad hearkeneth unto king Asa, and sendeth the heads of the forces that he hath unto cities of Israel, and they smite Ijon, and Dan, and Abel-Maim, and all the stores, cities of Naphtali.
5. And it cometh to pass, at Baasha`s hearing, that he ceaseth from building Ramah, and letteth his work rest;
6. and Asa the king hath taken all Judah, and they bear away the stones of Ramah, and its wood, that Baasha hath built, and he buildeth with them Geba and Mizpah.
7. And at that time hath Hanani the seer come in unto Asa king of Judah, and saith unto him, `Because of thy leaning on the king of Aram, and thou hast not leaned on Jehovah thy God, therefore hath the force of the king of Aram escaped from thy hand.
8. Did not the Cushim and the Lubim become a very great force for multitude, for chariot, and for horsemen? and in thy leaning on Jehovah He gave them into thy hand,
9. for Jehovah -- His eyes go to and fro in all the earth, to show Himself strong [for] a people whose heart [is] perfect towards Him; thou hast been foolish concerning this, because -- henceforth there are with thee wars.`
10. And Asa is angry at the seer, and giveth him to the house of torture, for [he is] in a rage with him for this; and Asa oppresseth [some] of the people at that time.
11. And lo, the matters of Asa, the first and the last, lo, they are written on the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.
12. And Asa is diseased -- in the thirty and ninth year of his reign -- in his feet, till his disease is excessive, and also in his disease he hath not sought Jehovah, but among physicians.
13. And Asa lieth with his fathers, and dieth in the forty and first year of his reign,
14. and they bury him in [one of] his graves, that he had prepared for himself in the city of David, and they cause him to lie on a bed that [one] hath filled [with] spices, and divers kinds of mixtures, with perfumed work; and they burn for him a burning -- very great.

Psalms 81:6-10
6. From the burden his shoulder I turned aside, His hands from the basket pass over.
7. In distress thou hast called and I deliver thee, I answer thee in the secret place of thunder, I try thee by the waters of Meribah. Selah.
8. Hear, O My people, and I testify to thee, O Israel, if thou dost hearken to me:
9. There is not in thee a strange god, And thou bowest not thyself to a strange god.
10. I [am] Jehovah thy God, Who bringeth thee up out of the land of Egypt. Enlarge thy mouth, and I fill it.

Proverbs 20:24-25
24. From Jehovah [are] the steps of a man, And man -- how understandeth he his way?
25. A snare to a man [is] he hath swallowed a holy thing, And after vows to make inquiry.

Acts 16:1-21
1. And he came to Derbe and Lystra, and lo, a certain disciple was there, by name Timotheus son of a certain woman, a believing Jewess, but of a father, a Greek,
2. who was well testified to by the brethren in Lystra and Iconium;
3. this one did Paul wish to go forth with him, and having taken [him], he circumcised him, because of the Jews who are in those places, for they all knew his father -- that he was a Greek.
4. And as they were going on through the cities, they were delivering to them the decrees to keep, that have been judged by the apostles and the elders who [are] in Jerusalem,
5. then, indeed, were the assemblies established in the faith, and were abounding in number every day;
6. and having gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia,
7. having gone toward Mysia, they were trying to go on toward Bithynia, and the Spirit did not suffer them,
8. and having passed by Mysia, they came down to Troas.
9. And a vision through the night appeared to Paul -- a certain man of Macedonia was standing, calling upon him, and saying, `Having passed through to Macedonia, help us;` --
10. and when he saw the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go forth to Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord hath called us to preach good news to them,
11. having set sail, therefore, from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, on the morrow also to Neapolis,
12. thence also to Philippi, which is a principal city of the part of Macedonia -- a colony. And we were in this city abiding certain days,
13. on the sabbath-day also we went forth outside of the city, by a river, where there used to be prayer, and having sat down, we were speaking to the women who came together,
14. and a certain woman, by name Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, worshipping God, was hearing, whose heart the Lord did open to attend to the things spoken by Paul;
15. and when she was baptized, and her household, she did call upon us, saying, `If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, having entered into my house, remain;` and she constrained us.
16. And it came to pass in our going on to prayer, a certain maid, having a spirit of Python, did meet us, who brought much employment to her masters by soothsaying,
17. she having followed Paul and us, was crying, saying, `These men are servants of the Most High God, who declare to us a way of salvation;`
18. and this she was doing for many days, but Paul having been grieved, and having turned, said to the spirit, `I command thee, in the name of Jesus Christ, to come forth from her;` and it came forth the same hour.
19. And her masters having seen that the hope of their employment was gone, having caught Paul and Silas, drew [them] to the market-place, unto the rulers,
20. and having brought them to the magistrates, they said, `These men do exceedingly trouble our city, being Jews;
21. and they proclaim customs that are not lawful for us to receive nor to do, being Romans.`
