+ 460 The Message

For centuries, scholars have been debating the two main possibilities for the origin and meaning of life. Some aspire to a higher philosophical dimension, which they can't find in the theory of evolution, while others dismiss as irrational any reference to an almighty god.

But what if another theory, one both rational and with philosophical depth, were to be available?

This is what the “Message” proposes: Thousands of years ago, scientists from another planet came to Earth and created all forms of life, including human beings, whom they created in their own image. References to these scientists and their work can be found in the ancient texts of many cultures. Due to their highly advanced technology, they were considered as gods by our primitive ancestors and often referred to as 'Elohim' which in ancient Hebrew meant 'Those who came from the sky'.

Despite being a plural word, Elohim was mistranslated over time to the singular 'God' reference that appears in modern-day Bibles.

Nevertheless, these people who came from the sky (the Elohim) educated humanity through the ages with the help of various messengers (also called prophets) with whom they had made contact. Each messenger was given a message suitable for the level of understanding prevailing at the time, with the primary purpose of instilling basic principles of non-violence and respect. Once humanity reached a sufficient level of scientific understanding, the Elohim decided to make themselves more visible in UFO sightings and to conceive their final message. Rael was given two missions: spreading that last message on Earth and preparing an embassy to welcome the return of our creators.

The atheist 'Intelligent Design Theory' offers a rational solution to the age-old debate between God-believers and evolutionists. It’s compatible not only with today's scientific discoveries but also with the ancient historical accounts of all cultures.

+ 437 One can ask two different kinds of questions with regard to the topics of study in psychology as well as in other sciences. One can ask for the phenomenal characteristics of psychological units or events, for example, how many kinds of feelings can be qualitatively differentiated from one another or which characteristics describe an experience of a voluntary act. Aside from this are the questions asking for the why, for the cause and the effect, for the conditional-genetic interrelations. For example, one can ask: Under which conditions has been a decision made and which are the specific psychological effects which follow this decision? The depiction of phenomenal characteristics is usually characterized as “description”, the depiction of causal relationships as “explanation.” Kurt Lewin 1927


+ 430 The popular medical formulation of morality that goes back to Ariston of Chios, "virtue is the health of the soul," would have to be changed to become useful, at least to read: "your virtue is the health of your soul." For there is no health as such, and all attempts to define a thing that way have been wretched failures. Even the determination of what is healthy for your body depends on your goal, your horizon, your energies, your impulses, your errors, and above all on the ideals and phantasms of your soul. Thus there are innumerable healths of the body; and the more we allow the unique and incomparable to raise its head again, and the more we abjure the dogma of the "equality of men," the more must the concept of a normal health, along with a normal diet and the normal course of an illness, be abandoned by medical men. Only then would the time have come to reflect on the health and illness of the soul, and to find the peculiar virtue of each man in the health of his soul. Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science, § 120 “Health of the Soul”

+ 867 When I arrived in England I thought I knew English. After I'd been here an hour I realized that I did not understand one word. In the first week I picked up a tolerable working knowledge of the language and the next seven years convinced me gradually but thoroughly that I would never know it really well, let alone perfectly. This is sad. My only consolation being that nobody speaks English perfectly.

Remember that those five hundred words an average Englishman uses are far from being the whole vocabulary of the language. You may learn another five hundred and another five thousand and yet another fifty thousand and still you may come across a further fifty thousand you have never heard of before, and nobody else either. If you live here long enough you will find out to your greatest amazement that the adjective nice is not the only adjective the language possesses, in spite of the fact that in the first three years you do not need to learn or use any other adjectives. You can say that the weather is nice, a restaurant is nice, Mr Soandso is nice, Mrs Soandso's clothes are nice, you had a nice time, and all this will be very nice. Then you have to decide on your accent. You will have your foreign accent all right, but many people like to mix it with something else. I knew a Polish Jew who had a strong Yiddish-Irish accent. People found it fascinating though slightly exaggerated. The easiest way to give the impression of having a good accent or no foreign accent at all is to hold an unlit pipe in your mouth, to mutter between your teeth and finish all your sentences with the question: 'isn't it?' People will not understand much, but they are accustomed to that and they will get a most excellent impression.

I have known quite a number of foreigners who tried hard to acquire an Oxford accent. The advantage of this is that you give the idea of being permanently in the company of Oxford dons and lecturers on medieval numismatics; the disadvantage is that the permanent singing is rather a strain on your throat and that it is a type of affection that even many English people find it hard to keep up incessantly. You may fall out of it, speak naturally, and then where are you? The Mayfair accent can be highly recommended, too. The advantages of Mayfair English are that it unites the affected air of the Oxford accent with the uncultured flavour of a half-educated professional hotel-dancer.

The most successful attempts, however, to put on a highly cultured air have been made on the polysyllabic lines. Many foreigners who have learnt Latin and Greek in school discover with amazement and satisfaction that the English language has absorbed a huge amount of ancient Latin and Greek expressions, and they realize that
a) it is much easier to learn these expressions than the much simpler English words;
b) that these words as a rule are interminably long and make a simply superb impression when talking to the greengrocer, the porter and the insurance agent. Imagine, for instance, that the porter of the block of flats where you live remarks sharply that you must not put your dustbin out in front of your door before 7.30 a.m. Should you answer 'Please don't bully me,' a loud and tiresome argument may follow, and certainly the porter will be proved right, because you are sure to find a dause in your contract (small print, of last page) that the porter is always right and you owe absolute allegiance and unconditional obedience to him. Should you answer, however, with these words: 1 repudiate your petulant expostulations,' the argument will be closed at once, the porter will be proud of having such a highly cultured man in the block, and from that day onwards you may, if you please, get up at four o'clock in the morning and hang your dustbin out of the window. But even in Curzon Street society, if you say, for instance, that you are a tough guy they will consider you a vulgar, irritating and objectionable person. Should you declare, however, that you are an inquisitorial and peremptory homo sapiens, they will have no idea what you mean, but they will feel in their bones that you must be something wonderful. When you know all the long words it is advisable to start learning some of the short ones, too. You should be careful when using these endless words. An acquaintance of mine once was fortunate enough to discover the most impressive word notalgia for back-ache. Mistakenly, however, he declared in a large company: 'I have such a nostalgia.' 'Oh, you want to go home to Nizhne-Novgorod?' asked his most sympathetic hostess. 'Not at all,' he answered. 'I just cannot sit down.' . Finally, there are two important points to remember:
1. Do not forget that it is much easier to write in English than to speak English, because you can write without a foreign accent.
2. In a bus and in other public places it is more advisable to speak softly in good German than to shout in abominable English.
Anyway, this whole language business is not at all easy. After spending eight years in this country, the other day I was told by a very kind lady: 'But why do you complain? You really speak a most excellent accent without the slightest English.'

+ 462 As a convinced atheist, I ought to agree with Voltaire that Judaism is not just one more religion, but in its way the root of religious evil. Without the stern, joyless rabbis and their 613 dour prohibitions, we might have avoided the whole nightmare of the Old Testament, and the brutal, crude wrenching of that into prophecy - derived Christianity, and the later plagiarism and mutation of Judaism and Christianity into the various rival forms of Islam. Much of the time, I do concur with Voltaire, but not without acknowledging that Judaism is dialectical. There is, after all, a specifically Jewish version of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, with a specifically Jewish name — the Haskalah — for itself. The term derives from the word for 'mind' or 'intellect,' and it is naturally associated with ethics rather than rituals, life rather than prohibitions, and assimilation over 'exile' or 'return.' It's everlastingly linked to the name of the great German teacher Moses Mendelssohn, one of those conspicuous Jewish hunchbacks who so upset and embarrassed Isaiah Berlin. The other way to upset or embarrass Berlin, I found, was to mention that he himself was a cousin of Menachem Schneerson, the 'messianic' Lubavitcher rebbe. However, even pre-enlightenment Judaism forces its adherents to study and think, it reluctantly teaches them what others think, and it may even teach them how to think also.

+ 403 Well-matured and well-disciplined talent is always sure of a market, provided it exerts itself; but it must not cower at home and expect to be sought for. There is a good deal of cant, too, in the whining about the success of forward and impudent men, while men of retiring worth are passed over with neglect. But it happens often that those forward men have that valuable quality of promptness and activity, without which worth is a mere inoperative property. A barking dog is often more useful than a sleeping lion. Endeavor to make your talents convertible to ready use, prompt for the occasion, and adapted to the ordinary purposes of life; cultivate strength rather than gracefulness; in our country it is the useful, not the ornamental, that is in demand.

+ 263 Don't wallow in self-pity. As soon as you face a challenge get busy finding a solution. Don't let the set backs affect your mood, instead see each new obstacle you face as an opportunity to make a positive change. Learn to trust your gut instincts – it's almost always right.

+ 291 A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual. (R.C. Henry, “The Mental Universe” ; Nature 436:29,2005)


+ 388 Words do not matter much but the emotion behind the words does. The Universe works on vibration. Everything is vibration first and matter second. When you feel an affirming emotion when focusing thought you are now creating dynamic change. Pure thought with positive emotion is said to be the equivalent of 2000 action hours. The problem that many people run into is that they "pretend" to be positive on the outside but are really vibrating negativity on the inside. They might not even be aware of what it is that they are doing. The Law of Attraction is so powerful that it trumps all other laws and forces in the Universe. It never takes time off or breaks and it is always working. It supersedes science, viruses, bacteria, pathogens, parasites, natural disasters, bad luck, heredity, genetics, chance, random, poor diet, too much sugar, astrology, numerology, tea leaves and psychology. Under The Law of Attraction, there are no odds and statistics are meaningless.

Because he is a transparent window for pure divinity, a ‘man-God,’ ‘when you speak to him, you speak to God.’"


+ 430 In 28 June 1996, The Jewish Press published a paid advertisement signed by Rabbi Ahron Soloveichik. follows. "Before the passing of the Rebbe, I included myself among those who believe that the Rebbe was worthy of being Mashiach. And I strongly believe that had we, particularly the Orthodox community, been united, we would have merited to see the complete Redemption. Insofar as the belief held by many in Lubavitch - based in part on similar statements made by the Rebbe himself concerning his predecessor, the Previous Rebbe, including prominent rabbanim and roshei yeshiva - that the Rebbe can still be Mashiach in light of the Gemara in Sanhedrin, the Zohar, Abarbanel, Kisvei Arizal, S’dei Chemed, and other sources, it cannot be dismissed as a belief that is outside the pale of Orthodoxy. Any cynical attempt at utilizing a legitimate disagreement of interpretation concerning this matter in order to besmirch and to damage the Lubavitch movement that was, and continues to be, at the forefront of those who are battling the missionaries, assimilation, and indifference, can only contribute to the regrettable discord that already plagues the Jewish community, and particularly the Torah community."


+ 387 In the book "The Book Which Tells the Truth", Vorilhon stated that he had an alien visitation on 13 December 1973. According to Rael, in a secluded area within a French volcanic crater, an extraterrestrial being came out of a craft that had descended gently from the sky, and told him, in French, that he had come for the sole purpose of meeting with him. Rael said that he was given a message by this alien and told that it was his mission to pass this message on to the people of Earth.

The book states that advanced human scientists from another planet with 25,000 years of scientific advances created all life on Earth through DNA manipulation. These scientists, Rael said, were originally called Elohim or "those who came from the sky". He wrote that some forty prophets in Earth's history were sent by Elohim, but their messages were distorted by humans, largely because of the difference in the level of civilization between the advanced race and Earth's primitive one.

Rael said he was given the mission of informing the world of humanity's origins in anticipation of the return of these extraterrestrials by building a residential embassy in neutral territory. He stated that certain mysteries were explained to him based on new interpretations of sacred texts such as the Bible. He said that, on 7 October 1975, he was contacted by one of the Elohim, who took him to another planet to meet Buddha, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad. He stated that his second book, "Extraterrestrials Took Me To Their Planet", relates the teaching he received from these people. In this book, Rael describes harmonious and peaceable beings, who were free of money, sickness, and war. History of Raelism

+ 301 Shimon the Righteous was among the last surviving members of the Great assembly. He would say: The world stands on three things: Torah, the service of G-d, and deeds of kindness. Pirkei Avot 1:2


+ 323 Rabbi Judah HaNassi would say: Which is the right path for man to choose for himself? Whatever is harmonious for the one who does it, and harmonious for mankind. Be as careful with a minor mitzvah as with a major one, for you do not know the rewards of the mitzvot. Consider the cost of a mitzvah against its rewards, and the rewards of a transgression against its cost. Contemplate three things, and you will not come to the hands of transgression: Know what is above from you: a seeing eye, a listening ear, and all your deeds being inscribed in a book. Pirkei Avot 2:1


+ 258 In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man. Pirkei Avot 2:5


+ 316 He (Hillel) would also say: One who increases flesh, increases worms; one who increases possessions, increases worry; one who increases wives, increases witchcraft; one who increases maidservants, increases promiscuity; one who increases man-servants, increases thievery; one who increases Torah, increases life; one who increases study, increases wisdom; one who increases counsel, increases understanding; one who increases charity, increases peace. One who acquires a good name, acquired it for himself; one who acquires the words of Torah, has acquired life in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 2:7


+ 326 Rabban Yochanan the son of Zakkai received the tradition from Hillel and Shammai. He would say: If you have learned much Torah, do not take credit for yourself - it is for this that you have been formed. Pirkei Avot 2:8


+ 343 Rabbi Yochanan said to them: Go and see which is the best trait for a person to acquire. Said Rabbi Eliezer: A good eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: A good friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: A good neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To see what is born out of one's actions. Said Rabbi Elazar: A good heart. Said He to them: I prefer the words of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. He said to them: Go and see which is the worst trait, the one that a person should most distance himself from. Said Rabbi Eliezer: An evil eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: An evil friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: An evil neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To borrow and not to repay; for one who borrows from man is as one who borrows from the Almighty, as is stated, "The wicked man borrows and does not repay; but the righteous one is benevolent and gives" (Psalms 37:21). Said Rabbi Elazar: An evil heart. Said He to them: I prefer the word of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. Pirkei Avot 2:10


+ 365 Rabbi Eliezer would say: The honor of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own, and do not be easy to anger. Repent one day before your death. Asked his disciples: Does a man know on which day he will die? Said he to them: So being the case, he should repent today, for perhaps tomorrow he will die; hence, all his days are passed in a state of repentance. Indeed, so said Solomon in his wisdom (Ecclesiastes 9:8): 'At all times, your clothes should be white, and oil should not lack from your head'" (Talmud, Shabbat 153a). Pirkei Avot 2:10


+ 301 Rabbi Joshua would say: An evil eye, the evil inclination, and the hatred of one's fellows, drive a person from the world Pirkei Avot 2:11


+ 335 Rabbi Tarfon would say: The day is short, the work is much, the workers are lazy, the reward is great, and the Master is pressing. He would also say: It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it. If you have learned much Torah, you will be greatly rewarded, and your employer is trustworthy to pay you the reward of your labors. And know, that the reward of the righteous is in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 2:15-16


+ 318 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 291 Be a tail to lions rather than a head to jackals. Pirkei Avot 4:20


+ 313 There are four types of student. One who is quick to understand and quick to forget - his flaw cancels his virtue. One who is slow to understand and slow to forget - his virtue cancels his flaw. One who is quick to understand and slow to forget - his is a good portion. One who is slow to understand and quick to forget - his is a bad portion. Pirkei Avot 5:12


+ 305 Shimon the Righteous was among the last surviving members of the Great assembly. He would say: The world stands on three things: Torah, the service of G-d, and deeds of kindness. Pirkei Avot 1:2


+ 361 Hillel and Shammai received from them. Hillel would say: Be of the disciples of Aaron--a lover of peace, a pursuer of peace, one who loves the creatures and draws them close to Torah. Pirkei Avot 1:12


+ 339 Rabbi Judah HaNassi would say: Which is the right path for man to choose for himself? Whatever is harmonious for the one who does it, and harmonious for mankind. Be as careful with a minor mitzvah as with a major one, for you do not know the rewards of the mitzvot. Consider the cost of a mitzvah against its rewards, and the rewards of a transgression against its cost. Contemplate three things, and you will not come to the hands of transgression: Know what is above from you: a seeing eye, a listening ear, and all your deeds being inscribed in a book. Pirkei Avot 2:1


+ 352 Rabban Gamliel the son of Rabbi Judah HaNassi would say: Beautiful is the study of Torah with the way of the world, for the toil of them both causes sin to be forgotten. Ultimately, all Torah study that is not accompanied with work is destined to cease and to cause sin. Those who work for the community should do so for the sake of Heaven; for then merit of their ancestors shall aid them, and their righteousness shall endure forever. And you, [says G-d,] I shall credit you with great reward as if you have achieved it. Pirkei Avot 2:2


+ 324 Be careful with the government, for they befriend a person only for their own needs. They appear to be friends when it is beneficial to them, but they do not stand by a person at the time of his distress. Pirkei Avot 2:3


+ 326 He would also say: Make that His will should be your will, so that He should make your will to be as His will. Nullify your will before His will, so that He should nullify the will of others before your will. Hillel would say: Do not separate yourself from the community. Do not believe in yourself until the day you die. Do not judge your fellow until you have stood in his place. Do not say something that is not readily understood in the belief that it will ultimately be understood [or: Do not say something that ought not to be heard even in the strictest confidence, for ultimately it will be heard]. And do not say "When I free myself of my concerns, I will study,'' for perhaps you will never free yourself. Pirkei Avot 2:4


+ 305 He would also say: A boor cannot be sin-fearing, an ignoramus cannot be pious, a bashful one cannot learn, a short-tempered person cannot teach, nor does anyone who does much business grow wise. In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man. Pirkei Avot 2:5


+ 296 He also saw a skull floating upon the water. Said he to it: Because you drowned others, you were drowned; and those who drowned you, will themselves be drowned. Pirkei Avot 2:6


+ 330 He would also say: One who increases flesh, increases worms; one who increases possessions, increases worry; one who increases wives, increases witchcraft; one who increases maidservants, increases promiscuity; one who increases man-servants, increases thievery; one who increases Torah, increases life; one who increases study, increases wisdom; one who increases counsel, increases understanding; one who increases charity, increases peace. One who acquires a good name, acquired it for himself; one who acquires the words of Torah, has acquired life in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 2:7


+ 309 Rabban Yochanan the son of Zakkai received the tradition from Hillel and Shammai. He would say: If you have learned much Torah, do not take credit for yourself - it is for this that you have been formed. Pirkei Avot 2:8


+ 350 Rabban Yochanan the son of Zakkai had five disciples: Rabbi Eliezer the son of Hurkenus, Rabbi Joshua the son of Chananya, Rabbi Yossei the Kohen, Rabbi Shimon the son of Nethanel, and Rabbi Elazar the son of Arach. He would recount their praises: Rabbi Eliezer the son of Hurkenus is a cemented cistern that loses not a drop; Rabbi Joshua the son of Chananya---fortunate is she who gave birth to him; Rabbi Yossei the Kohen---a chassid (pious one); Rabbi Shimon the son of Nethanel fears sin; Rabbi Elazar ben Arach is as an ever-increasing wellspring. Rabbi Yochanan used to say: If all the sages of Israel were to be in one cup of a balance-scale, and Eliezer the son of Hurkenus were in the other, he would outweigh them all. Abba Shaul said in his name: If all the sages of Israel were to be in one cup of a balance-scale, Eliezer the son of Hurkenus included, and Elazar the son of Arach were in the other, he would outweigh them all. Pirkei Avot 2:9


+ 325 Rabbi Yochanan said to them: Go and see which is the best trait for a person to acquire. Said Rabbi Eliezer: A good eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: A good friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: A good neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To see what is born [out of ones actions]. Said Rabbi Elazar: A good heart. Said He to them: I prefer the words of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. He said to them: Go and see which is the worst trait, the one that a person should most distance himself from. Said Rabbi Eliezer: An evil eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: An evil friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: An evil neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To borrow and not to repay; for one who borrows from man is as one who borrows from the Almighty, as is stated, ``The wicked man borrows and does not repay; but the righteous one is benevolent and gives'' (Psalms 37:21). Said Rabbi Elazar: An evil heart. Said He to them: I prefer the word of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. They would each say three things: Rabbi Eliezer would say: The honor of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own, and do not be easy to anger. Repent one day before your death.** Warm yourself by the fire of the sages, but be beware lest you be burned by its embers; for their bite is the bite of a fox, their sting is the sting of a scorpion, their hiss is the hiss a serpent, and all their words are like fiery coals. Pirkei Avot 2:10


+ 268 Rabbi Joshua would say: An evil eye, the evil inclination, and the hatred of one's fellows, drive a person from the world. Pirkei Avot 2:11


+ 343 Rabbi Yossei would say: The property of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own. Perfect yourself for the study of Torah, for it is not an inheritance to you. And all your deeds should be for the sake of Heaven. Pirkei Avot 2:12


+ 315 Rabbi Shimon would say: Be meticulous with the reading of the Shma and with prayer. When you pray, do not make your prayers routine, but [an entreaty of] mercy and a supplication before the Almighty, as is stated ``For He is benevolent and merciful, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness, and relenting of the evil decree'' (Joel 2:13). And do not be wicked in your own eyes. Pirkei Avot 2:13


+ 359 Rabbi Elazar would say: Be diligent in the study of Torah. Know what to answer a heretic. And know before whom you toil, and who is your employer who will repay you the reward of your labors. Pirkei Avot 2:14


+ 287 Rabbi Tarfon would say: The day is short, the work is much, the workers are lazy, the reward is great, and the Master is pressing. Pirkei Avot 2:15


+ 324 He would also say: It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it. If you have learned much Torah, you will be greatly rewarded, and your employer is trustworthy to pay you the reward of your labors. And know, that the reward of the righteous is in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 2:16


+ 339 Rabbi Chanina, deputy to the kohanim, would say: Pray for the integrity of the government; for were it not for the fear of its authority, a man would swallow his neighbor alive. Rabbi Chanina son of Tradyon would say: Two who sit and no words of Torah pass between them, this is a session of scorners, as is stated, "And in a session of scorners he did not sit" (Psalms 1:1). But two who sit and exchange words of Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated, "Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard; and it was inscribed before Him in a book of remembrance for those who fear G-d and give thought to His name" (Malachi 3:16). From this, I know only concerning two individuals; how do I know that even a single individual who sits and occupies himself with the Torah, G-d designates reward for him? From the verse, "He sits alone in meditative stillness; indeed, he receives [reward] for it" (Lamentations 3:28). Pirkei Avot 3:2


+ 319 Rabbi Shimon would say: Three who eat at one table and do not speak words of Torah, it is as if they have eaten of idolatrous sacrifices; as is stated, "Indeed, all tables are filled with vomit and filth, devoid of the Omnipresent" (Isaiah 28:8). But three who eat at one table and speak words of Torah, it is as if they have eaten at G-d's table, as is stated, "And he said to me: This is the table that is before G-d" (Ezekiel 41:22). Pirkei Avot 3:3


+ 341 Rabbi Chalafta the son of Dosa of the village of Chanania would say: Ten who sit together and occupy themselves with Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated: "The Almighty stands in the congregation of G-d" (Psalms 82:1). And from where do we know that such is also the case with five? From the verse, "He established his band on earth" (Amos 9:6). And three? From the verse, "He renders judgement in the midst of the tribunal" (Psalms 82:1). And two? From the verse, "Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard" (Malachi 3:16). And from where do we know that such is the case even with a single individual? From the verse, "Every place where I have My name mentioned, I shall come to you and bless you" (Exodus 20:21). Pirkei Avot 3:6


+ 318 Rabbi Elazar of Bartosa would say: Give Him what is His, for you, and whatever is yours, are His. As David says: "For everything comes from You, and from Your own hand we give to You" (I Chronicles 29:14). Rabbi Yaakov would say: One who walks along a road and studies, and interrupts his studying to say, "How beautiful is this tree!", "How beautiful is this ploughed field!"---the Torah considers it as if he had forfeited his life. Pirkei Avot 3:7


+ 294 Rabbi Ishmael would say: Be yielding to a leader, affable to the black-haired, and receive every man with joy. Pirkei Avot 3:12


+ 372 He would also say: Beloved is man, for he was created in the image [of G-d]; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to him that he was created in the image, as it is says, "For in the image of G-d, He made man" (Genesis 9:6). Beloved are Israel, for they are called children of G-d; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they are called children of G-d, as it is stated: "You are children of the L-rd your G-d" (Deuteronomy 14:1). Beloved are Israel, for they were given a precious article; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they were given a precious article, as it is stated: "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it" (Proverbs 4:2). Pirkei Avot 3:14


+ 326 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 316 Ben Azzai would say: Run to pursue a minor mitzvah, and flee from a transgression. For a mitzvah brings another mitzvah, and a transgression brings another transgression. For the reward of a mitzvah is a mitzvah, and the reward of transgression is transgression. Pirkei Avot 4:2


+ 319 Rabbi Eliezer the son of Shamua would say: The dignity of your student should be as precious to you as your own; the dignity of your colleague, as your awe of your master; and your awe of your master as your awe of Heaven. Pirkei Avot 4:12


+ 309 Samuel the Small would say: "When your enemy falls, do not rejoice; when he stumbles, let your heart not be gladdened. Lest G-d see, and it will displeasing in His eyes, and He will turn His wrath from him [to you]" (Proverbs 24:17-18). Pirkei Avot 4:19


+ 307 Elisha the son of Avuyah would say: One who learns Torah in his childhood, what is this comparable to? To ink inscribed on fresh paper. One who learns Torah in his old age, what is this comparable to? To ink inscribed on erased paper. Rabbi Yossei the son of Judah of Kfar HaBavli would say: One who learns Torah from youngsters, whom is he comparable to? To one who eats unripe grapes and drinks [unfermented] wine from the press. One who learns Torah from the old, whom is he comparable to? To one who eats ripened grapes and drinks aged wine. Said Rabbi Meir: Look not at the vessel, but at what it contains. There are new vessels that are filled with old wine, and old vessels that do not even contain new wine. Pirkei Avot 4:20


+ 296 Rabbi Elazar HaKapor would say: Envy, lust and honor drive a man from the world. Pirkei Avot 4:21


+ 333 He would also say: Those who are born will die, and the dead will live. The living will be judged, to learn, to teach and to comprehend that He is G-d, He is the former, He is the creator, He is the comprehender, He is the judge, He is the witness, He is the plaintiff, and He will judge. Blessed is He, for before Him there is no wrong, no forgetting, no favoritism, and no taking of bribes; know, that everything is according to the reckoning. Let not your heart convince you that the grave is your escape; for against your will you are formed, against your will you are born, against your will you live, against your will you die, and against your will you are destined to give a judgement and accounting before the king, king of all kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. Pirkei Avot 4:22


+ 294 There were ten generations from Adam to Noah. This is to teach us the extent of G-d's tolerance; for all these generations angered Him, until He brought upon them the waters of the Flood. There were ten generations from Noah to Abraham. This is to teach us the extent of G-d's tolerance; for all these generations angered Him, until Abraham came and reaped the reward for them all. Pirkei Avot 5:2


+ 299 Ten miracles were performed for our forefathers in Egypt, and another ten at the sea. Ten afflictions were wrought by G-d upon the Egyptians in Egypt, and another ten at the sea. With ten tests our forefathers tested G-d in the desert, as is stated (Numbers 14:22), "They tested Me these ten times, and did not hearken to My voice." Pirkei Avot 5:4


+ 339 There are four types of student. One who is quick to understand and quick to forget - his flaw cancels his virtue. One who is slow to understand and slow to forget - his virtue cancels his flaw. One who is quick to understand and slow to forget - his is a good portion. One who is slow to understand and quick to forget--his is a bad portion. Pirkei Avot 5:12


+ 329 One who causes the community to be meritorious, no sin will come by his hand. One who causes the community to sin, is not given the opportunity to repent. Moses was meritorious and caused the community to be meritorious, so the community's merit is attributed to him; as is stated, "He did God's righteousness, and His laws with Israel" (Deuteronomy 33:21). Jeroboam the son of Nebat sinned and caused the community to sin, so the community's sin is attributed to him; as is stated, "For the sins of Jeroboam, which he sinned and caused Israel to sin" (I Kings 15:30). Pirkei Avot 5:18


+ 385 Whoever possesses the following three traits is of the disciples of our father Abraham; and whoever possesses the opposite three traits is of the disciples of the wicked Balaam. The disciples of our father Abraham have a good eye, a meek spirit and a humble soul. The disciples of the wicked Balaam have an evil eye, a haughty spirit and a gross soul. What is the difference between the disciples of our father Abraham and the disciples of the wicked Balaam? The disciples of our father Abraham benefit in this world and inherit the World To Come, and as is stated, "To bequeath to those who love Me there is, and their treasures I shall fill" (Proverbs 8:21). The disciples of the wicked Balaam inherit purgatory and descent into the pit of destruction, as is stated, "And You, G-d, shall cast them into the pit of destruction; bloody and deceitful men, they shall not attain half their days. And I shall trust in you" (ibid., 55:24). Pirkei Avot 5:19


+ 319 Judah the son of Teima would say: Be bold as a leopard, light as an eagle, fleeting as a deer and mighty as a lion to do the will of your Father in Heaven. He would also say: The brazen--to purgatory; the bashful--to paradise. May it be Your will, L-rd our G-d and G-d of our fathers, that the Holy Temple be rebuilt speedily in our days; and grant us our portion in Your Torah. Pirkei Avot 5:20


+ 310 Ben Bag Bag would say: Delve and delve into it, for all is in it; see with it; grow old and worn in it; do not budge from it, for there is nothing better. Ben Hei Hei would say: According to the pain is the gain. Pirkei Avot 5:21


+ 280 He would also say: Five years is the age for the study of Scripture. Ten, for the study of Mishnah. Thirteen, for the obligation to observe the mitzvot. Fifteen, for the study of Talmud. Eighteen, for marriage. Twenty, to pursue [a livelihood]. Thirty, for strength, Forty, for understanding. Fifty, for counsel. Sixty, for sagacity. Seventy, for elderliness. Eighty, for power. Ninety, to stoop. A hundred-year-old is as one who has died and passed away and has been negated from the world. Pirkei Avot 5:22


+ 325 Said Rabbi Joshua the son of Levi: Every day, an echo resounds from Mount Horeb (Sinai) proclaiming and saying: "Woe is to the creatures who insult the Torah." For one who does not occupy himself in Torah is considered an outcast, as is stated (Proverbs 11:22), "A golden nose-ring in the snout of a swine, a beautiful woman bereft of reason." And it says (Exodus 32:16): "And the tablets are the work of God, and the writing is God's writing, engraved on the tablets"; read not "engraved" (charut) but "liberty" (chairut) - for there is no free individual, except for he who occupies himself with the study of Torah. And whoever occupies himself with the study of Torah is elevated, as is stated (Number 21:19), "And from the gift to Nahaliel, and from Nahaliel to The Heights." Pirkei Avot 6:2


+ 351 One who learns from his fellow a single chapter, or a single law, or a single verse, or a single word, or even a single letter, he must treat him with respect. For so we find with David, king of Israel, who did not learn anything from Achitofel except for two things alone, yet he called him his "master," his "guide" and his "intimate," as is stated (Psalms 55:14), "And you are a man of my worth, my guide and intimate friend." Surely we can infer a fortiori: if David, king of Israel, who learned nothing from Achitofel except for two things alone, nevertheless referred to him as his master, guide and intimate, it certainly goes without saying that one who learns from his fellow a single chapter, a law, a verse, a saying, or even a single letter, is obligated to revere him. And there is no reverence but Torah, as is stated (Proverbs 3:35; 28:10), "The sages shall inherit honor" "and the integral shall inherit good"; and there is no good but Torah, as is stated (ibid. 4:2), "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it." Pirkei Avot 6:3


+ 305 Such is the way of Torah: Bread with salt you shall eat, water in small measure you shall drink, and upon the ground you shall sleep; live a life of deprivation and toil in Torah. If so you do, "fortunate are you, and good is to you" (Psalms 128:2): fortunate are you in this world, and it is good to you in the World To Come. Pirkei Avot 6:4


+ 611 Torah is greater than the priesthood or sovereignty, for sovereignty is acquired with thirty virtues, the priesthood with twenty-four, and Torah is acquired with forty-eight qualities. These are: study, listening, verbalizing, comprehension of the heart, awe, fear, humility, joy, purity, serving the sages, companionship with one's contemporaries, debating with one's students, tranquility, study of the scriptures, study of the Mishnah, minimizing engagement in business, minimizing socialization, minimizing pleasure, minimizing sleep, minimizing talk, minimizing gaiety, slowness to anger, good heartedness, faith in the sages, acceptance of suffering, knowing one's place, satisfaction with one's lot, qualifying one's words, not taking credit for oneself, likableness, love of God, love of humanity, love of charity, love of justice, love of rebuke, fleeing from honor, lack of arrogance in learning, reluctance to hand down rulings, participating in the burden of one's fellow, judging him to the side of merit, correcting him, bringing him to a peaceful resolution [of his disputes], deliberation in study, asking and answering, listening and illuminating, learning in order to teach, learning in order to observe, wising one's teacher, exactness in conveying a teaching, and saying something in the name of its speaker. Thus we have learned: One who says something in the name of its speaker brings redemption to the world, as is stated (Esther 2:22), "And Esther told the king in the name of Mordechai." Pirkei Avot 6:6


+ 309 Great is Torah, for it gives life to its observers in this world, and in the World To Come. As is stated (Proverbs 4:22): "For they are life to he who finds them, and a healing to all his flesh." And it says (ibid. 3:8): "It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones." And it says (3:18): "She is a tree of life for those who hold fast to her, and happy are those who support her." And it says (1:9): "For they shall be a garland of grace for your head, and necklaces about your neck." And it says(4:9): "She shall give to your head a garland of grace, a crown of glory she shall grant you." And it says (9:11): "With me, your days shall be increased, and years of life shall be added to you." And it says (3:16): "Long days in her right hand; in her left, wealth and honor." And it says (3:2): "For long days, years of life and peace, they shall add to you." Pirkei Avot 6:7


+ 330 Rabbi Shimon the son of Judah would say in the name of Rabbi Shimon the son of Yochai: Beauty, strength, wealth, honor, wisdom, sageness, old age and children are becoming to the righteous and becoming to the world. As is stated (Proverbs 16:31): "Old age is a crown of beauty, to be found in the ways of righteousness." And it says (ibid. 20:29): "The beauty of youths is their strength, and the glory of sages is their age." And it says (ibid., 17:6): "The crown of sages are their grandchildren, and the beauty of children their fathers." And it says (Isaiah 24:23): "And the moon shall be abashed and the sun shamed, for the Lord of hosts has reigned in Zion, and before his elders is glory." Rabbi Shimon the son of Menasia would say: these seven qualities enumerated by the sages for the righteous were all realized in Rabbi [Judah HaNassi] and his sons. Pirkei Avot 6:8


+ 349 Said Rabbi Yossei the son of Kisma: Once, I was traveling and I encountered a man. He greeted me and I returned his greetings. Said he to me: "Rabbi, where are you from?" Said I to him: "From a great city of sages and scholars, am I." Said he to me: "Rabbi, would you like to dwell with us in our place? I will give you a million dinars of gold, precious stones and pearls." Said I to him: "If you were to give me all the silver, gold, precious stones and pearls in the world, I would not dwell anywhere but in a place of Torah. Indeed, so is written in the book of psalms by David the king of Israel: `I prefer the Torah of Your mouth over thousands in gold and silver' (Psalms 118:72). Furthermore, when a person passes from this world neither silver, nor gold, nor precious stones, nor pearls accompany him, only Torah and good deeds, as is stated (Proverbs 6:22): `When you go it will direct you, when you lie down it will watch over you, and when you awaken it shall be your speech.' `When you go it will direct you' - in this world; `when you lie down it will watch over you' - in the grave; `and when you awaken it shall be our speech' - in the World To Come. Also it says (Chaggai 2:8): `Mine is the silver and Mine is the gold, so says the L-rd of Hosts.' " Pirkei Avot 6:9


+ 377 God acquired five acquisitions in his world. These are: one acquisition is the Torah, one acquisition are the heavens and the earth, one acquisition is Abraham, one acquisition is the people of Israel, and one acquisition is the Holy Temple. The Torah, as it is written (Proverbs 8:22), "God acquired me as the beginning of His way, before His works of yore." The heavens and the earth, as it is written (Isaiah 66:1), "So says God: The heavens are My throne and the earth is My footstool; what house, then, can you build for Me, and where is My place of rest?"; and it says (Psalms 104:25), "How many are your works, O God, You have made them all with wisdom; the earth is filled with Your acquisitions." Abraham, as it is written (Genesis 14:19), "And he blessed him, and said: Blessed be Abram to God Most High, acquirer of heavens and earth." Israel, as it is written (Exodus 15:16), "Till Your nation, O God, shall pass, till this nation You have acquired shall pass"; and it says (Psalms 16:3), "To the holy who are upon earth, the noble ones, in whom is all My delight." The Holy Temple, as it is written (Exodus 15:17), "The base for Your dwelling that you, God, have achieved; the Sanctuary, O Lord, that Your hands have established"; and it says (Psalms 78:54), "And He brought them to His holy domain, this mount His right hand has acquired." Pirkei Avot 6:10

+ 257 L’fum tzara agra, according to the effort is the reward. Ben Hei Hei, Ethics of the Fathers, 5:26.


+ 361 If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky way. properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality? Mark Twain (“Concerning The Jews,” Harper’s Magazine, 1899 see The Complete Essays of Mark Twain, Doubleday [1963] pg. 249)


+ 281 They teach wisdom and self-control; they will help you understand wise words. Mishlei 1:2


+ 285 Let’s swallow them alive, as death does; let’s swallow them whole, as the grave does. Mishlei 1:12


+ 244 Wisdom is like a woman shouting in the street; she raises her voice in the city squares. Mishlei 1:20


+ 235 She cries out in the noisy street and shouts at the city gates: Mishlei 1:21


+ 245 You fools, how long will you be foolish? How long will you make fun of wisdom and hate knowledge? Mishlei 1:22


+ 278 If only you had listened when I corrected you, I would have told you what’s in my heart; I would have told you what I am thinking. Mishlei 1:23


+ 254 I called, but you refused to listen; I held out my hand, but you paid no attention. Mishlei 1:24


+ 229 You did not follow my advice and did not listen when I corrected you. Mishlei 1:25


+ 293 So I will laugh when you are in trouble. I will make fun when disaster strikes you, Mishlei 1:26


+ 377 When disaster comes over you like a storm, when trouble strikes you like a whirlwind, when pain and trouble overwhelm you. Mishlei 1:27


+ 304 Then you will call to me, but I will not answer. You will look for me, but you will not find me. Mishlei 1:28


+ 260 It is because you rejected knowledge and did not choose to respect the Lord. Mishlei 1:29


+ 258 Fools will die because they refuse to listen; they will be destroyed because they do not care. Mishlei 1:32


+ 255 My child, listen to what I say and remember what I command you. Mishlei 2:1


+ 273 Listen carefully to wisdom; set your mind on understanding. Mishlei 2:2


+ 237 Cry out for wisdom, and beg for understanding. Mishlei 2:3


+ 271 Search for it like silver, and hunt for it like hidden treasure. Mishlei 2:4


+ 262 Then you will understand respect for the Lord, and you will find that you know God. Mishlei 2:5


+ 265 Only the Lord gives wisdom; he gives knowledge and understanding. Mishlei 2:6


+ 251 He stores up wisdom for those who are honest. Like a shield he protects the innocent. Mishlei 2:7


+ 238 He makes sure that justice is done, and he protects those who are loyal to him. Mishlei 2:8


+ 254 Then you will understand what is honest and fair and what is the good and right thing to do. Mishlei 2:9


+ 258 Wisdom will come into your mind, and knowledge will be pleasing to you. Mishlei 2:10


+ 234 Good sense will protect you; understanding will guard you. Mishlei 2:11


+ 248 It will keep you from the wicked, from those whose words are bad, Mishlei 2:12


+ 233 Who don’t do what is right but what is evil. Mishlei 2:13


+ 243 They enjoy doing wrong and are happy to do what is crooked and evil. Mishlei 2:14


+ 304 What they do is wrong, and their ways are dishonest. Mishlei 2:15


+ 276 It will save you from the unfaithful wife who tries to lead you into adultery with pleasing words. Mishlei 2:16


+ 290 She leaves the husband she married when she was young. She ignores the promise she made before God. Mishlei 2:17


+ 248 Her house is on the way to death; those who took that path are now all dead. Mishlei 2:27


+ 255 No one who goes to her comes back or walks the path of life again. Mishlei 2:28


+ 244 But wisdom will help you be good and do what is right. Mishlei 2:20


+ 241 Those who are honest will live in the land, and those who are innocent will remain in it. Mishlei 2:21


+ 226 But the wicked will be removed from the land, and the unfaithful will be thrown out of it. Mishlei 2:22


+ 287 Then you will live a long time, and your life will be successful. Mishlei 3:2


+ 294 The Lord corrects those he loves, just as parents correct the child they delight in. Mishlei 3:12


+ 242 With his knowledge, he made springs flow into rivers and the clouds drop rain on the earth. Mishlei 3:20


+ 271 My child, hold on to wisdom and good sense. Don’t let them out of your sight. Mishlei 3:21


+ 253 They will give you life and beauty like a necklace around your neck. Mishlei 3:22


+ 258 Then you will go your way in safety, and you will not get hurt. Mishlei 3:23


+ 234 When you lie down, you won’t be afraid; when you lie down, you will sleep in peace. Mishlei 3:24


+ 258 You won’t be afraid of sudden trouble; you won’t fear the ruin that comes to the wicked, Mishlei 3:25


+ 317 Because the Lord will keep you safe. He will keep you from being trapped. Mishlei 3:26


+ 262 Whenever you are able, do good to people who need help. Mishlei 3:27


+ 267 If you have what your neighbor asks for, don’t say, “Come back later. I will give it to you tomorrow.” Mishlei 3:28


+ 254 Don’t make plans to hurt your neighbor who lives nearby and trusts you. Mishlei 3:29


+ 231 The Lord hates those who do wrong, but he is a friend to those who are honest. Mishlei 3:32


+ 241 What I am telling you is good, so do not forget what I teach you. Mishlei 4:2


+ 472 Nothing will hold you back; you will not be overwhelmed. Mishlei 4:12


+ 238 My child, pay attention to my words; listen closely to what I say. Mishlei 4:20


+ 260 Don’t ever forget my words; keep them always in mind. Mishlei 4:21


+ 241 They are the key to life for those who find them; they bring health to the whole body. Mishlei 4:22


+ 247 Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life. Mishlei 4:23


+ 264 Don’t use your mouth to tell lies; don’t ever say things that are not true. Mishlei 4:24


+ 272 Keep your eyes focused on what is right, and look straight ahead to what is good. Mishlei 4:25


+ 255 Be careful what you do, and always do what is right. Mishlei 4:26


+ 264 Don’t turn off the road of goodness; keep away from evil paths. Mishlei 4:27


+ 224 Be careful to use good sense, and watch what you say. Mishlei 5:2


+ 253 Then you will say, “I hated being told what to do! I would not listen to correction! Mishlei 5:12


+ 246 My son, don’t be held captive by a woman who takes part in adultery. Don’t fondle a woman who is not your wife. Mishlei 5:20


+ 256 The Lord sees everything you do, and he watches where you go. Mishlei 5:21


+ 253 An evil man will be caught in his wicked ways; the ropes of his sins will tie him up. Mishlei 5:22


+ 197 He will die because he does not control himself, and he will be held captive by his foolishness. Mishlei 5:23


+ 230 You might get trapped by what you say; you might be caught by your own words. Mishlei 6:2


+ 256 Some people are wicked and no good. They go around telling lies, Mishlei 6:12


+ 249 My son, keep your father’s commands, and don’t forget your mother’s teaching. Mishlei 6:20


+ 244 Keep their words in mind forever as though you had them tied around your neck. Mishlei 6:21


+ 250 They will guide you when you walk. They will guard you when you sleep. They will speak to you when you are awake. Mishlei 6:22


+ 248 These commands are like a lamp; this teaching is like a light. And the correction that comes from them will help you have life. Mishlei 6:23


+ 275 They will keep you from sinful women and from the pleasing words of another man’s unfaithful wife. Mishlei 6:24


+ 253 Don’t desire her because she is beautiful. Don’t let her capture you by the way she looks at you. Mishlei 6:25


+ 265 A prostitute will treat you like a loaf of bread, and a woman who takes part in adultery may cost you your life. Mishlei 6:26


+ 261 You cannot carry hot coals against your chest without burning your clothes, Mishlei 6:27


+ 331 And you cannot walk on hot coals without burning your feet. Mishlei 6:28


+ 261 The same is true if you have sexual relations with another man’s wife. Anyone who does so will be punished. Mishlei 6:29


+ 229 A man who takes part in adultery has no sense; he will destroy himself. Mishlei 6:32


+ 249 Obey my commands, and you will live. Guard my teachings as you would your own eyes. Mishlei 7:2


+ 240 She was always out in the streets or in the city squares, waiting around on the corners of the streets. Mishlei 7:12


+ 279 He took a lot of money with him and won’t be home for weeks. Mishlei 7:20


+ 300 By her clever words she made him give in; by her pleasing words she led him into doing wrong. Mishlei 7:21


+ 219 All at once he followed her, like an ox led to the butcher, like a deer caught in a trap Mishlei 7:22


+ 263 And shot through the liver with an arrow. Like a bird caught in a trap, he didn’t know what he did would kill him. Mishlei 7:23


+ 240 Now, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say. Mishlei 7:24


+ 249 Do not let yourself be tricked by such a woman; do not go where she leads you. Mishlei 7:25


+ 236 She has ruined many good men, and many have died because of her. Mishlei 7:26


+ 293 Her house is on the road to death, the road that leads down to the grave. Mishlei 7:27


+ 265 On the hilltops along the road and at the crossroads, she stands calling. Mishlei 8:2


+ 259 I am wisdom, and I have good judgment. I also have knowledge and good sense. Mishlei 8:12


+ 226 I do what is right and follow the path of justice. Mishlei 8:20


+ 274 I give wealth to those who love me, filling their houses with treasures. Mishlei 8:21


+ 245 I, wisdom, was with the Lord when he began his work, long before he made anything else. Mishlei 8:22


+ 219 I was created in the very beginning, even before the world began. Mishlei 8:23


+ 235 I was born before there were oceans, or springs overflowing with water, Mishlei 8:24


+ 202 I was created before the mountains were sunk, before the hills; Mishlei 8:25


+ 260 When He had not yet made the land and the outsides and the beginning of the dust of the earth. Mishlei 8:26


+ 210 When He established the heavens, there I was, when He drew a circle over the face of the deep; Mishlei 8:27


+ 246 When He made the skies above firm, when He strengthened the fountains of the deep; Mishlei 8:28


+ 247 when He gave the sea its boundary, and the water shall not transgress His command, when He established the foundations of the earth. Mishlei 8:29


+ 235 And now, my children, hearken to me, and fortunate are those who observe my ways. Mishlei 8:32


+ 236 She has prepared her meat; she has mingled her wine; she has even set her table. Mishlei 9:2


+ 227 If you have become wise, you have become wise for yourself, and if you scorn, you will bear it alone. Mishlei 9:12


+ 255 Hatred stirs up trouble, but love forgives all wrongs. Mishlei 10:12


+ 236 The words of a good person are like pure silver, but an evil person’s thoughts are worth very little. Mishlei 10:20


+ 249 Good people’s words will help many others, but fools will die because they don’t have wisdom. Mishlei 10:21


+ 259 The Lord’s blessing brings wealth, and no sorrow comes with it. Mishlei 10:22


+ 238 A foolish person enjoys doing wrong, but a person with understanding enjoys doing what is wise. Mishlei 10:23


+ 219 Evil people will get what they fear most, but good people will get what they want most. Mishlei 10:24


+ 237 A storm will blow the evil person away, but a good person will always be safe. Mishlei 10:25


+ 237 A lazy person affects the one he works for like vinegar on the teeth or smoke in the eyes. Mishlei 10:26


+ 241 Whoever respects the Lord will have a long life, but the life of an evil person will be cut short. Mishlei 10:27


+ 304 A good person can look forward to happiness, but an evil person can expect nothing. Mishlei 10:28


+ 223 The Lord will protect good people but will ruin those who do evil. Mishlei 10:29


+ 223 Good people know the right thing to say, but evil people only tell lies. Mishlei 10:32


+ 245 Pride leads only to shame; it is wise to be humble. Mishlei 11:2


+ 267 People without good sense find fault with their neighbors, but those with understanding keep quiet. Mishlei 11:12


+ 280 The Lord hates those with evil hearts but is pleased with those who are innocent. Mishlei 10:20


+ 270 Evil people will certainly be punished, but those who do right will be set free. Mishlei 11:21


+ 225 A beautiful woman without good sense is like a gold ring in a pig’s snout. Mishlei 11:22


+ 300 Those who do right only wish for good, but the wicked can expect to be defeated by God’s anger. Mishlei 11:23


+ 278 Some people give much but get back even more. Others do not give what they should and end up poor. Mishlei 11:24


+ 244 Whoever gives to others will get richer; those who help others will themselves be helped. Mishlei 11:25


+ 276 People curse those who keep all the grain, but they bless the one who is willing to sell it. Mishlei 11:26


+ 233 Whoever looks for good will find kindness, but whoever looks for evil will find trouble. Mishlei 11:27


+ 242 Those who trust in riches will be ruined, but a good person will be healthy like a green leaf. Mishlei 11:28


+ 246 Whoever brings trouble to his family will be left with nothing but the wind. A fool will be a servant to the wise. Mishlei 11:29


+ 270 Anyone who loves learning accepts correction, but a person who hates being corrected is stupid. Mishlei 12:1


+ 253 The Lord is pleased with a good person, but he will punish anyone who plans evil. Mishlei 12:2


+ 247 Doing evil brings no safety at all, but a good person has safety and security. Mishlei 12:3


+ 262 A good wife is like a crown for her husband, but a disgraceful wife is like a disease in his bones. Mishlei 12:4


+ 244 The plans that good people make are fair, but the advice of the wicked will trick you. Mishlei 12:5


+ 238 The wicked talk about killing people, but the words of good people will save them. Mishlei 12:6


+ 314 Wicked people die and they are no more, but a good person’s family continues. Mishlei 12:7


+ 224 The wisdom of the wise wins praise, but there is no respect for the stupid. Mishlei 12:8


+ 268 A person who is not important but has a servant is better off than someone who acts important but has no food. Mishlei 12:9


+ 208 Good people take care of their animals, but even the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel. Mishlei 12:10


+ 271 Those who work their land will have plenty of food, but the one who chases empty dreams is not wise. Mishlei 12:11


+ 231 The wicked want what other evil people have stolen, but good people want to give what they have to others. Mishlei 12:12

+ 257 The plans of hard-working people earn a profit, but those who act too quickly become poor. Mishlei 21:5


+ 265 Wealth that comes from telling lies vanishes like a mist and leads to death. Mishlei 21:6


+ 238 The violence of the wicked will destroy them, because they refuse to do what is right. Proverbs 21:7


+ 240 Guilty people live dishonest lives, but honest people do right. Mishlei 21:8


+ 261 It is better to live in a corner on the roof n than inside the house with a quarreling wife. Mishlei 21:9

+ 266 People who act with stubborn pride are called “proud,” “bragger,” and “mocker.” Mishlei 21:24


+ 225 Lazy people’s desire for sleep will kill them, because they refuse to work. Mishlei 21:25

+ 270 You can get the horses ready for battle, but it is the Lord who gives the victory. Mishlei 21:31


+ 252 Being respected is more important than having great riches. To be well thought of is better than silver or gold. Mishlei 22:1


+ 249 The rich and the poor are alike in that the Lord made them all. Mishlei 22:2


+ 263 The wise see danger ahead and avoid it, but fools keep going and get into trouble. Mishlei 22:3


+ 311 Respecting the Lord and not being proud will bring you wealth, honor, and life. Mishlei 22:4


+ 281 Evil people’s lives are like paths covered with thorns and traps. People who guard themselves don’t have such problems. Mishlei 22:5


+ 242 Train children to live the right way, and when they are old, they will not stray from it. Mishlei 22:6


+ 270 The rich rule over the poor, and borrowers are servants to lenders. Mishlei 22:7


+ 211 Those who plan evil will receive trouble. Their cruel anger will come to an end. Mishlei 22:8


+ 266 Generous people will be blessed, because they share their food with the poor. Mishlei 22:9


+ 274 Get rid of the one who makes fun of wisdom. Then fighting, quarrels, and insults will stop. Mishlei 22:10


+ 267 Whoever loves pure thoughts and kind words will have even the king as a friend. Mishlei 22:11

+ 231 The lazy person says, “There’s a lion outside! I might get killed out in the street!” Mishlei 22:13


+ 242 The words of an unfaithful wife are like a deep trap. Those who make the Lord angry will get caught by them. Mishlei 22:14

+ 259 I am teaching you true and reliable words so that you can give true answers to anyone who asks. Mishlei 22:21


+ 270 Do not abuse poor people because they are poor, and do not take away the rights of the needy in court. Mishlei 22:22


+ 264 The Lord will defend them in court and will take the life of those who take away their rights. Mishlei 22:23


+ 253 Don’t make friends with quick-tempered people or spend time with those who have bad tempers. Mishlei 22:24


+ 230 If you do, you will be like them. Then you will be in real danger. Mishlei 22:25


+ 253 Don’t promise to pay what someone else owes, and don’t guarantee anyone’s loan. Mishlei 22:26


+ 260 If you cannot pay the loan, your own bed may be taken right out from under you. Mishlei 22:27


+ 255 Don’t move an old stone that marks a border, because those stones were set up by your ancestors. Mishlei 22:28


+ 222 Do you see people skilled in their work? They will work for kings, not for ordinary people. Mishlei 22:29


+ 270 If you sit down to eat with a ruler, notice the food that is in front of you. Mishlei 23:1

+ 264 Don’t be greedy for his fine foods, because that food might be a trick. Mishlei 23:3


+ 228 Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich; be wise enough to control yourself. Mishlei 23:4


+ 259 Wealth can vanish in the wink of an eye. It can seem to grow wings and fly away like an eagle. Mishlei 23:5


+ 258 Don’t eat the food of selfish people; don’t be greedy for their fine foods. Mishlei 23:6


+ 272 Selfish people are always worrying about how much the food costs. They tell you, “Eat and drink,” but they don’t really mean it. Mishlei 23:7


+ 219 You will throw up the little you have eaten, and you will have wasted your kind words. Mishlei 23:8


+ 236 Do not speak to fools; they will only ignore your wise words. Mishlei 23:9


+ 249 Don’t move an old stone that marks a border, and don’t take fields that belong to orphans. Mishlei 23:10

+ 238 Remember what you are taught, and listen carefully to words of knowledge. Mishlei 23:12


+ 230 Don’t fail to punish children. If you spank them, they won’t die. Mishlei 23:13

+ 244 My child, if you are wise, then I will be happy. Mishlei 23:15


+ 228 I will be so pleased if you speak what is right. Mishlei 23:16


+ 228 Don’t envy sinners, but always respect the Lord. Mishlei 23:17


+ 238 Then you will have hope for the future, and your wishes will come true. Mishlei 23:18


+ 243 Listen, my child, and be wise. Keep your mind on what is right. Mishlei 23:19


+ 184 Don’t drink too much wine or eat too much food. Mishlei 23:20


+ 265 Those who drink and eat too much become poor. They sleep too much and end up wearing rags. Mishlei 23:21


+ 256 Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not forget your mother when she is old. Mishlei 23:22


+ 262 Learn the truth and never reject it. Get wisdom, self-control, and understanding. Mishlei 23:23


+ 231 The father of a good child is very happy; parents who have wise children are glad because of them. Mishlei 23:24


+ 231 Make your father and mother happy; give your mother a reason to be glad. Mishlei 23:25


+ 243 My son, pay attention to me, and watch closely what I do. Mishlei 23:26


+ 248 A prostitute is as dangerous as a deep pit, and an unfaithful wife is like a narrow well. Mishlei 23:27


+ 292 They ambush you like robbers and cause many men to be unfaithful to their wives. Mishlei 23:28


+ 232 Who has trouble? Who has pain?
Who fights? Who complains?
Who has unnecessary bruises?
Who has bloodshot eyes?
Mishlei 23:29


+ 248 It is people who drink too much wine, who try out all different kinds of strong drinks. Mishlei 23:30


+ 252 Don’t stare at the wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly. Mishlei 23:31


+ 206 Later it bites like a snake with poison in its fangs. Mishlei 23:32


+ 240 Your eyes will see strange sights, and your mind will be confused. Mishlei 23:33


+ 266 You will feel dizzy as if you’re in a storm on the ocean, as if you’re on top of a ship’s sails. Mishlei 23:34


+ 244 You will think, They hit me, but I’m not hurt. They beat me up, but I don’t remember it. I wish I could wake up. Then I would get another drink.
Mishlei 23:35


+ 238 Don’t envy evil people or try to be friends with them. Mishlei 24:1


+ 286 Their minds are always planning violence, and they always talk about making trouble. Mishlei 24:2


+ 235 It takes wisdom to have a good family, and it takes understanding to make it strong. Mishlei 24:3


+ 237 It takes knowledge to fill a home with rare and beautiful treasures. Mishlei 24:4


+ 231 Wise people have great power, and those with knowledge have great strength. Mishlei 24:5


+ 237 So you need advice when you go to war. If you have lots of good advice, you will win. Mishlei 24:6


+ 240 Foolish people cannot understand wisdom. They have nothing to say in a discussion. Mishlei 24:7


+ 209 Whoever makes evil plans will be known as a troublemaker. Mishlei 24:8


+ 240 Making foolish plans is sinful, and making fun of wisdom is hateful. Mishlei 24:9


+ 249 If you give up when trouble comes, it shows that you are weak. Mishlei 24:10


+ 228 Save those who are being led to their death; rescue those who are about to be killed. Mishlei 24:11


+ 252 If you say, “We don’t know anything about this,” God, who knows what’s in your mind, will notice. Mishlei 24:12


+ 234 Save those who are being led to their death; rescue those who are about to be killed. Mishlei 24:11


+ 277 If you say, “We don’t know anything about this,” God, who knows what’s in your mind, will notice. He is watching you, and he will know. He will reward each person for what he has done. Mishlei 24:12


+ 276 My child, eat honey because it is good. Honey from the honeycomb tastes sweet. Mishlei 24:13


+ 283 In the same way, wisdom is pleasing to you. If you find it, you have hope for the future, and your wishes will come true. Mishlei 24:14


+ 242 Don’t be wicked and attack a good family’s house; don’t rob the place where they live. Mishlei 24:15


+ 264 Even though good people may be bothered by trouble seven times, they are never defeated, but the wicked are overwhelmed by trouble. Mishlei 24:16


+ 268 Don’t be happy when your enemy is defeated; don’t be glad when he is overwhelmed. Mishlei 24:17


+ 249 The Lord will notice and be displeased. He may not be angry with them anymore. Mishlei 24:18


+ 242 Don’t envy evil people, and don’t be jealous of the wicked. Mishlei 24:19


+ 256 An evil person has nothing to hope for; the wicked will die like a flame that is put out. Mishlei 24:20


+ 330 My child, respect the Lord and the king. Don’t join those people who refuse to obey them. Mishlei 24:21


+ 237 The Lord and the king will quickly destroy such people. Those two can cause great disaster! Mishlei 24:22


+ 269 These are also sayings of the wise: It is not good to take sides when you are the judge. Mishlei 24:23


+ 255 Don’t tell the wicked that they are innocent; people will curse you, and nations will hate you. Mishlei 24:24


+ 261 But things will go well if you punish the guilty, and you will receive rich blessings. Mishlei 24:25


+ 228 An honest answer is as pleasing as a kiss on the lips. Mishlei 24:26


+ 251 First, finish your outside work and prepare your fields. After that, you can build your house. Mishlei 24:27


+ 257 Don’t testify against your neighbor for no good reason. Don’t say things that are false. Mishlei 24:28


+ 206 Do not say, I will get even; I will do to him what he did to me. Mishlei 24:29


+ 245 I passed by a lazy person’s field and by the vineyard of someone with no sense. Mishlei 24:30


+ 267 Thorns had grown up everywhere. The ground was covered with weeds, and the stone walls had fallen down. Mishlei 24:31


+ 278 I thought about what I had seen; I learned this lesson from what I saw. Mishlei 24:32


+ 238 You sleep a little; you take a nap. You fold your hands and lie down to rest. Mishlei 24:33


+ 250 Soon you will be as poor as if you had been robbed; you will have as little as if you had been held up. Mishlei 24:34


+ 278 These are more wise sayings of Solomon, copied by the men of Hezekiah king of Judah. Mishlei 25:1


+ 227 God is honored for what he keeps secret. Kings are honored for what they can discover. Mishlei 25:2


+ 234 No one can measure the height of the skies or the depth of the earth. So also no one can understand the mind of a king. Mishlei 25:3


+ 211 Remove the scum from the silver, so the silver can be used by the silversmith. Mishlei 25:4


+ 295 Remove wicked people from the king’s presence; then his government will be honest and last a long time. Mishlei 25:5


+ 241 Don’t brag to the king and act as if you are great. Mishlei 25:6


+ 250 It is better for him to give you a higher position than to bring you down in front of the prince. Because of something you have seen, Mishlei 25:7


+ 222 Do not quickly take someone to court. What will you do later when your neighbor proves you wrong? Mishlei 25:8


+ 255 If you have an argument with your neighbor, don’t tell other people what was said. Mishlei 25:9


+ 236 Whoever hears it might shame you, and you might not ever be respected again. Mishlei 25:10


+ 242 The right word spoken at the right time is as beautiful as gold apples in a silver bowl. Mishlei 25:11


+ 212 Trustworthy messengers refresh those who send them, like the coolness of snow in the summertime. Mishlei 25:13


+ 264 People who brag about gifts they never give are like clouds and wind that give no rain. Mishlei 25:14


+ 242 With patience you can convince a ruler, and a gentle word can get through to the hard-headed. Mishlei 25:15


+ 217 If you find honey, don’t eat too much, or it will make you throw up. Mishlei 25:16


+ 231 Don’t go to your neighbor’s house too often; too much of you will make him hate you. Mishlei 25:17


+ 261 When you lie about your neighbors, it hurts them as much as a club, a sword, or a sharp arrow. Mishlei 25:18


+ 256 Trusting unfaithful people when you are in trouble is like eating with a broken tooth or walking with a crippled foot. Mishlei 25:19


+ 239 Singing songs to someone who is sad is like taking away his coat on a cold day or pouring vinegar on soda. Mishlei 25:20


+ 257 If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him a drink. Mishlei 25:21


+ 225 Doing this will be like pouring burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you. Mishlei 25:22


+ 339 As the north wind brings rain, telling gossip brings angry looks. Mishlei 25:23


+ 289 It is better to live in a corner on the roof than inside the house with a quarreling wife. Mishlei 25:24


+ 268 Good news from a faraway place is like a cool drink when you are tired. Mishlei 25:25


+ 274 A good person who gives in to evil is like a muddy spring or a dirty well. Mishlei 25:26


+ 241 Good news from a faraway place is like a cool drink when you are tired. Mishlei 25:25


+ 287 A good person who gives in to evil is like a muddy spring or a dirty well. Mishlei 25:26


+ 247 It is not good to eat too much honey, nor does it bring you honor to brag about yourself. Mishlei 25:27


+ 212 Those who do not control themselves are like a city whose walls are broken down. Mishlei 25:28


+ 267 It shouldn’t snow in summer or rain at harvest. Neither should a foolish person ever be honored. Mishlei 26:1


+ 269 Curses will not harm someone who is innocent; they are like sparrows or swallows that fly around and never land. Mishlei 26:2


+ 228 Whips are for horses, and harnesses are for donkeys, so paddles are good for fools. Mishlei 26:3


+ 234 Don’t answer fools when they speak foolishly, or you will be just like them. Mishlei 26:4


+ 240 Answer fools when they speak foolishly, or they will think they are really wise. Mishlei 26:5


+ 273 Sending a message by a foolish person is like cutting off your feet or drinking poison. Mishlei 26:6


+ 264 A wise saying spoken by a fool is as useless as the legs of a crippled person. Mishlei 26:7


+ 242 Giving honor to a foolish person is like tying a stone in a slingshot. Mishlei 26:8


+ 239 A wise saying spoken by a fool is like a thorn stuck in the hand of a drunk. Mishlei 26:9


+ 222 Hiring a foolish person or anyone just passing by is like an archer shooting at just anything. Mishlei 26:10


+ 223 A fool who repeats his foolishness is like a dog that goes back to what it has thrown up. Mishlei 26:11


+ 237 There is more hope for a foolish person than for those who think they are wise. Mishlei 26:12


+ 219 The lazy person says, “There’s a lion in the road! There’s a lion in the streets!” Mishlei 26:13


+ 266 Like a door turning back and forth on its hinges, the lazy person turns over and over in bed. Mishlei 26:14


+ 254 Lazy people may put their hands in the dish, but they are too tired to lift the food to their mouths. Mishlei 26:15


+ 247 The lazy person thinks he is wiser than seven people who give sensible answers. Mishlei 26:16


+ 247 Interfering in someone else’s quarrel as you pass by is like grabbing a dog by the ears. Mishlei 26:17


+ 237 Like a madman shooting deadly, burning arrows Mishlei 26:18


+ 242 Is the one who tricks a neighbor and then says, I was just joking. Mishlei 26:19


+ 232 Without wood, a fire will go out, and without gossip, quarreling will stop. Mishlei 26:20


+ 285 Just as charcoal and wood keep a fire going, a quarrelsome person keeps an argument going. Mishlei 26:21


+ 212 The words of a gossip are like tasty bits of food; people like to gobble them up. Mishlei 26:22


+ 248 Kind words from a wicked mind are like a shiny coating on a clay pot. Mishlei 26:23


+ 244 Those who hate you may try to fool you with their words, but in their minds they are planning evil. Mishlei 26:24


+ 255 People’s words may be kind, but don’t believe them, because their minds are full of evil thoughts. Mishlei 26:25


+ 229 Lies can hide hate, but the evil will be plain to everyone. Mishlei 26:26


+ 234 Whoever digs a pit for others will fall into it. Whoever tries to roll a boulder down on others will be crushed by it. Mishlei 26:27


+ 245 Liars hate the people they hurt, and false praise can ruin others. Mishlei 26:28


+ 232 Don’t brag about tomorrow; you don’t know what may happen then. Mishlei 27:1


+ 261 Don’t praise yourself. Let someone else do it. Let the praise come from a stranger and not from your own mouth. Mishlei 27:2


+ 265 Stone is heavy, and sand is weighty, but a complaining fool is worse than either. Mishlei 27:3


+ 262 Anger is cruel and destroys like a flood, but no one can put up with jealousy! Mishlei 27:4


+ 290 It is better to correct someone openly than to have love and not show it. Mishlei 27:5


+ 249 The slap of a friend can be trusted to help you, but the kisses of an enemy are nothing but lies. Mishlei 27:6


+ 227 When you are full, not even honey tastes good, but when you are hungry, even something bitter tastes sweet. Mishlei 27:7


+ 237 A person who leaves his home is like a bird that leaves its nest. Mishlei 27:8


+ 217 The sweet smell of perfume and oils is pleasant, and so is good advice from a friend. Mishlei 27:9


+ 256 Don’t forget your friend or your parent’s friend. Don’t always go to your family for help when trouble comes. A neighbor close by is better than a family far away. Mishlei 27:10


+ 237 Be wise, my child, and make me happy. Then I can respond to any insult. Mishlei 27:11


+ 265 The wise see danger ahead and avoid it, but fools keep going and get into trouble. Mishlei 27:12


+ 293 Take the coat of someone who promises to pay a stranger’s loan, and keep it until he pays what the stranger owes. Mishlei 27:13


+ 239 If you loudly greet your neighbor early in the morning, he will think of it as a curse. Mishlei 27:14


+ 237 A quarreling wife is as bothersome as a continual dripping on a rainy day. Mishlei 27:15


+ 257 Stopping her is like stopping the wind or trying to grab oil in your hand. Mishlei 27:16


+ 245 As iron sharpens iron, so people can improve each other. Mishlei 27:17


+ 239 Whoever tends a fig tree gets to eat its fruit, and whoever takes care of his master will receive honor. Mishlei 27:18


+ 256 As water reflects your face, so your mind shows what kind of person you are. Mishlei 27:19


+ 233 People will never stop dying and being destroyed, and they will never stop wanting more than they have. Mishlei 27:20


+ 293 A hot furnace tests silver and gold, and people are tested by the praise they receive. Mishlei 27:21


+ 286 Even if you ground up a foolish person like grain in a bowl, you couldn’t remove the foolishness. Mishlei 27:22


+ 216 Be sure you know how your sheep are doing, and pay attention to the condition of your cattle. Mishlei 27:23


+ 215 Riches will not go on forever, nor do governments go on forever. Mishlei 27:24


+ 236 Bring in the hay, and let the new grass appear. Gather the grass from the hills. Mishlei 27:25


+ 266 Make clothes from the lambs’ wool, and sell some goats to buy a field. Mishlei 27:26


+ 264 There will be plenty of goat’s milk to feed you and your family and to make your servant girls healthy. Mishlei 27:27


+ 247 Evil people run even though no one is chasing them, but good people are as brave as a lion. Mishlei 28:1


+ 254 When a country is lawless, it has one ruler after another; but when it is led by a leader with understanding and knowledge, it continues strong. Mishlei 28:2


+ 243 Rulers who mistreat the poor are like a hard rain that destroys the crops. Mishlei 28:3


+ 226 Those who disobey what they have been taught praise the wicked, but those who obey what they have been taught are against them. Mishlei 28:4


+ 216 Evil people do not understand justice, but those who follow the Lord understand it completely. Mishlei 28:5


+ 247 It is better to be poor and innocent than to be rich and wicked. Mishlei 28:6


+ 289 Children who obey what they have been taught are wise, but friends of troublemakers disgrace their parents. Mishlei 28:7


+ 284 Some people get rich by overcharging others, but their wealth will be given to those who are kind to the poor. Mishlei 28:8


+ 260 If you refuse to obey what you have been taught, your prayers will not be heard. Mishlei 28:9


+ 286 Those who lead good people to do wrong will be ruined by their own evil, but the innocent will be rewarded with good things. Mishlei 28:10


+ 236 Rich people may think they are wise, but the poor with understanding will prove them wrong. Mishlei 28:11


+ 239 When good people triumph, there is great happiness, but when the wicked get control, everybody hides. Mishlei 28:12


+ 235 If you hide your sins, you will not succeed. If you confess and reject them, you will receive mercy. Mishlei 28:13


+ 262 Those who are always respectful will be happy, but those who are stubborn will get into trouble. Mishlei 28:14


+ 262 A wicked ruler is as dangerous to poor people as a roaring lion or a charging bear. Mishlei 28:15


+ 247 A ruler without wisdom will be cruel, but the one who refuses to take dishonest money will rule a long time. Mishlei 28:16


+ 238 Don’t help those who are guilty of murder; let them run until they die. Mishlei 28:17


+ 250 Innocent people will be kept safe, but those who are dishonest will suddenly be ruined. Mishlei 28:18


+ 258 Those who work their land will have plenty of food, but the ones who chase empty dreams instead will end up poor. Mishlei 28:19


+ 332 A truthful person will have many blessings, but those eager to get rich will be punished. Mishlei 28:20


+ 233 It is not good for a judge to take sides, but some will sin for only a piece of bread. Mishlei 28:21


+ 296 Selfish people are in a hurry to get rich and do not realize they soon will be poor. Mishlei 28:22


+ 237 Those who correct others will later be liked more than those who give false praise. Mishlei 28:23


+ 264 Whoever robs father or mother and says, “It’s not wrong,” is just like someone who destroys things. Mishlei 28:24


+ 219 A greedy person causes trouble, but the one who trusts the Lord will succeed. Mishlei 28:25


+ 221 Those who trust in themselves are foolish, but those who live wisely will be kept safe. Mishlei 28:26


+ 254 Whoever gives to the poor will have everything he needs, but the one who ignores the poor will receive many curses. Mishlei 28:27


+ 230 When the wicked get control, everybody hides, but when they die, good people do well. Mishlei 28:28


+ 246 Whoever is stubborn after being corrected many times will suddenly be hurt beyond cure. Mishlei 29:1


+ 234 When good people do well, everyone is happy, but when evil people rule, everyone groans. Mishlei 29:2


+ 265 Those who love wisdom make their parents happy, but friends of prostitutes waste their money. Mishlei 29:3


+ 234 If a king is fair, he makes his country strong, but if he takes gifts dishonestly, he tears his country down. Mishlei 29:4


+ 223 Those who give false praise to their neighbors are setting a trap for them. Mishlei 29:5


+ 233 Evil people are trapped by their own sin, but good people can sing and be happy. Mishlei 29:6


+ 237 Good people care about justice for the poor, but the wicked are not concerned. Mishlei 29:7


+ 225 People who make fun of wisdom cause trouble in a city, but wise people calm anger down. Mishlei 29:8


+ 246 When a wise person takes a foolish person to court, the fool only shouts or laughs, and there is no peace. Mishlei 29:9


+ 232 Murderers hate an honest person and try to kill those who do right. Mishlei 29:10


+ 234 Foolish people lose their tempers, but wise people control theirs. Mishlei 29:11


+ 215 If a ruler pays attention to lies, all his officers will become wicked. Mishlei 29:12


+ 276 The poor person and the cruel person are alike in that the Lord gave eyes to both of them. Mishlei 29:13


+ 267 If a king judges poor people fairly, his government will continue forever. Mishlei 29:14


+ 240 Correction and punishment make children wise, but those left alone will disgrace their mother. Mishlei 29:15


+ 262 When there are many wicked people, there is much sin, but those who do right will see them destroyed. Mishlei 29:16


+ 253 Correct your children, and you will be proud; they will give you satisfaction. Mishlei 29:17


+ 260 Where there is no word from God, people are uncontrolled, but those who obey what they have been taught are happy. Mishlei 29:18


+ 238 Words alone cannot correct a servant, because even if they understand, they won’t respond. Mishlei 29:19


+ 242 Do you see people who speak too quickly? There is more hope for a foolish person than for them. Mishlei 29:20


+ 252 If you spoil your servants when they are young, they will bring you grief later on. Mishlei 29:21


+ 210 An angry person causes trouble; a person with a quick temper sins a lot. Mishlei 29:22


+ 209 Pride will ruin people, but those who are humble will be honored. Mishlei 29:23


+ 236 Partners of thieves are their own worst enemies. If they have to testify in court, they are afraid to say anything. Mishlei 29:24


+ 240 Being afraid of people can get you into trouble, but if you trust the Lord, you will be safe. Mishlei 29:25


+ 207 Many people want to speak to a ruler, but justice comes only from the Lord. Mishlei 29:26


+ 255 Good people hate those who are dishonest, and the wicked hate those who are honest. Mishlei 29:27


+ 234 I am the most stupid person there is, and I have no understanding. Mishlei 30:2


+ 234 Some people think they are pure, but they are not really free from evil. Mishlei 30:12


+ 301 “This is the way of a woman who takes part in adultery: She acts as if she had eaten and washed her face; she says, ‘I haven’t done anything wrong.’ Mishlei 30:20


+ 264 There are three things that make the earth tremble, really four it cannot stand: Mishlei 30:21


+ 225 À servant who becomes a king, a foolish person who has plenty to eat, Mishlei 30:22


+ 271 A hated woman who gets married, and a maid who replaces her mistress. Mishlei 30:23


+ 247 There are four things on earth that are small, but they are very wise: Mishlei 30:24


+ 209 Ants are not very strong, but they store up food in the summer. Mishlei 30:25


+ 208 Rock badgers are not very powerful, but they can live among the rocks. Mishlei 30:26


+ 214 Locusts have no king, but they all go forward in formation. Mishlei 30:27


+ 229 Lizards can be caught in the hand, but they are found even in kings’ palaces. Mishlei 30:28


+ 242 There are three things that strut proudly, really four that walk as if they were important: Mishlei 30:29


+ 259 If you have been foolish and proud, or if you have planned evil, shut your mouth. Mishlei 30:32


+ 267 My son, I gave birth to you. You are the son I prayed for. Mishlei 30:2


+ 260 She does him good and not harm for as long as she lives. Mishlei 31:12


+ 261 She welcomes the poor and helps the needy. Mishlei 31:20


+ 252 She does not worry about her family when it snows, because they all have fine clothes to keep them warm. Mishlei 31:21


+ 232 She makes coverings for herself; her clothes are made of linen and other expensive material. Mishlei 31:22


+ 236 Her husband is known at the city meetings, where he makes decisions as one of the leaders of the land. Mishlei 31:23


+ 264 She makes linen clothes and sells them and provides belts to the merchants. Mishlei 31:24


+ 243 She is strong and is respected by the people. She looks forward to the future with joy. Mishlei 31:25


+ 226 She speaks wise words and teaches others to be kind. Mishlei 31:26


+ 264 She watches over her family and never wastes her time. Mishlei 31:27


+ 221 Her children speak well of her. Her husband also praises her, Mishlei 31:28


+ 243 Saying, “There are many fine women, but you are better than all of them.” Mishlei 31:29


+ 327 “For three thousand years, Jerusalem has been the center of Jewish hope and longing. No other city has played such a dominant role in the history, culture, religion and consciousness of a people as has Jerusalem in the life of Jewry and Judaism. Throughout centuries of exile, Jerusalem remained alive in the hearts of Jews everywhere as the focal point of Jewish history, the symbol of ancient glory, spiritual fulfillment and modern renewal. This heart and soul of the Jewish people engenders the thought that if you want one simple word to symbolize all of Jewish history, that word would be ‘Jerusalem.’” Teddy Kollek; Mayor of Jerusalem (1967-1993) Jerusalem, (DC: Washington Institute For Near East Policy, 1990), pp. 19-20.


+ 211 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Psalms 122:6


+ 235 For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:3


+ 328 In the din and tumult of the age, the still small voice of Jerusalem remains our only music. Israel Zangwill, 1921


+ 433 Long before it was known to me as a place where my ancestry was even remotely involved, the idea of a state for Jews (or a Jewish state; not quite the same thing, as I failed at first to see) had been 'sold' to me as an essentially secular and democratic one. The idea was a haven for the persecuted and the survivors, a democracy in a region where the idea was poorly understood, and a place where—as Philip Roth had put it in a one-handed novel that I read when I was about nineteen—even the traffic cops and soldiers were Jews. This, like the other emphases of that novel, I could grasp. Indeed, my first visit was sponsored by a group in London called the Friends of Israel. They offered to pay my expenses, that is, if on my return I would come and speak to one of their meetings.

I still haven't submitted that expenses claim. The misgivings I had were of two types, both of them ineradicable. The first and the simplest was the encounter with everyday injustice: by all means the traffic cops were Jews but so, it turned out, were the colonists and ethnic cleansers and even the torturers. It was Jewish leftist friends who insisted that I go and see towns and villages under occupation, and sit down with Palestinian Arabs who were living under house arrest—if they were lucky—or who were squatting in the ruins of their demolished homes if they were less fortunate. In Ramallah I spent the day with the beguiling Raimonda Tawil, confined to her home for committing no known crime save that of expressing her opinions. (For some reason, what I most remember is a sudden exclamation from her very restrained and respectable husband, a manager of the local bank: 'I would prefer living under a Bedouin muktar to another day of Israeli rule!' He had obviously spent some time thinking about the most revolting possible Arab alternative.) In Jerusalem I visited the Tutungi family, who could produce title deeds going back generations but who were being evicted from their apartment in the old city to make way for an expansion of the Jewish quarter. Jerusalem: that place of blood since remote antiquity. Jerusalem, over which the British and French and Russians had fought a foul war in the Crimea, and in the mid-nineteenth century, on the matter of which Christian Church could command the keys to some 'holy sepulcher.' Jerusalem, where the anti-Semite Balfour had tried to bribe the Jews with the territory of another people in order to seduce them from Bolshevism and continue the diplomacy of the Great War. Jerusalem: that pest-house in whose environs all zealots hope that an even greater and final war can be provoked. It certainly made a warped appeal to my sense of history.
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir


+ 308 All questions of right to one side, I have never been able to banish the queasy inner suspicion that Israel just did not look, or feel, either permanent or sustainable. I felt this when sitting in the old Ottoman courtyards of Jerusalem, and I felt it even more when I saw the hideous 'Fort Condo' settlements that had been thrown up around the city in order to give the opposite impression. If the statelet was only based on a narrow strip of the Mediterranean littoral (god having apparently ordered Moses to lead the Jews to one of the very few parts of the region with absolutely no oil at all), that would be bad enough. But in addition, it involved roosting on top of an ever-growing population that did not welcome the newcomers. Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir


+ 320 One of the questions asked by al-Balkhi, and often repeated to this day, is this: Why do the children of Israel continue to suffer? My grandmother Dodo thought it was because the goyim were jealous. The seder for Passover (which is a shame-faced simulacrum of a Hellenic question-and-answer session, even including the wine) tells the children that it's one of those things that happens to every Jewish generation. After the Shoah or Endl?sung or Holocaust, many rabbis tried to tell the survivors that the immolation had been a punishment for 'exile,' or for insufficient attention to the Covenant. This explanation was something of a flop with those whose parents or children had been the raw material for the 'proof,' so for a time the professional interpreters of god's will went decently quiet. This interval of ambivalence lasted until the war of 1967, when it was announced that the divine purpose could be discerned after all. How wrong, how foolish, to have announced its discovery prematurely! The exile and the Shoah could now both be understood, as part of a heavenly if somewhat roundabout scheme to recover the Western Wall in Jerusalem and other pieces of biblically mandated real estate.

I regard it as a matter of self-respect to spit in public on rationalizations of this kind. (They are almost as repellent, in their combination of arrogance, masochism, and affected false modesty, as Edith Stein's 'offer' of her life to expiate the regrettable unbelief in Jesus of her former fellow Jews.) The sage Jews are those who have put religion behind them and become in so many societies the leaven of the secular and the atheist. Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir

+ 359 There's a certain amount of ambiguity in my background, what with intermarriages and conversions, but under various readings of three codes which I don’t much respect (Mosaic Law, the Nuremberg Laws, and the Israeli Law of Return) I do qualify as a member of the tribe, and any denial of that in my family has ceased with me. But I would not remove myself to Israel if it meant the continuing expropriation of another people, and if anti-Jewish fascism comes again to the Christian world—or more probably comes at us via the Muslim world—I already consider it an obligation to resist it wherever I live. I would detest myself if I fled from it in any direction. Leo Strauss was right. The Jews will not be 'saved' or 'redeemed.' (Cheer up: neither will anyone else.) They/we will always be in exile whether they are in the greater Jerusalem area or not, and this in some ways is as it should be. They are, or we are, as a friend of Victor Klemperer's once put it to him in a very dark time, condemned and privileged to be 'a seismic people.' A critical register of the general health of civilization is the status of 'the Jewish question.' No insurance policy has ever been devised that can or will cover this risk.

+ 288 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the prophets and stoner of those sent forth to her,—how often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks together under her wings! But you people did not want it. Jesus Christ, Matthew 23:37

+ 349 “If there is a hard, high wall and an egg that breaks against it, no matter how right the wall or how wrong the egg, I will stand on the side of the egg. Why? Because each of us is an egg, a unique soul enclosed in a fragile egg. Each of us is confronting a high wall. The high wall is the system which forces us to do the things we would not ordinarily see fit to do as individuals . . . We are all human beings, individuals, fragile eggs. We have no hope against the wall: it's too high, too dark, too cold. To fight the wall, we must join our souls together for warmth, strength. We must not let the system control us -- create who we are. It is we who created the system. (Jerusalem Prize acceptance speech, JERUSALEM POST, Feb. 15, 2009)” Haruki Murakami

+ 295 Every day of our lives and in every season of the year (not just at Easter time), Jesus asks each of us, as he did following his triumphant entry into Jerusalem those many years ago, ‘What think ye of Christ? whose son is he?’ (Matt. 22:42.) We declare that he is the Son of God, and the reality of that fact should stir our souls more frequently. I pray that it will, this Easter season and always. Howard W. Hunter


+ 270 You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you. 2 Chronicles 20:17


+ 271 Think about it; the quicktank is given a job most of us would laugh out of town. Build a sophisticated camera capable of full 3-D input and peripheral pickup, using only water and jelly. Build an eye. Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan, Vol. 2: Lust for Life


+ 263 Vanity of vanities, said Koheleth; vanity of vanities, all is vanity. Kohelet 1:2


+ 273 I am Koheleth; I was king over Israel in Jerusalem. Kohelet 1:12


+ 247 I said to myself, "Come now, I will mix wine with joy and experience pleasure"; and behold, this too was vanity. Kohelet 2:1


+ 298 Of laughter, I said, "It is mingled"; and concerning joy, "What does this accomplish?". Kohelet 2:2


+ 342 I searched in my heart to indulge my body with wine, and my heart conducting itself with wisdom and holding onto folly, until I would see which is better for the children of men that they should do under the heavens, the number of the days of their lives. Kohelet 2:3


+ 293 I made myself great works; I built myself houses, and I planted myself vineyards. Kohelet 2:4


+ 283 I made myself gardens and orchards, and I planted in them all sorts of fruit trees. Kohelet 2:5


+ 261 I made myself pools of water, to water from them a forest sprouting with trees. Kohelet 2:6


+ 255 I acquired male and female slaves, and I had household members; also I had possession of cattle and flocks, more than all who were before me in Jerusalem. Kohelet 2:7


+ 277 I accumulated for myself also silver and gold, and the treasures of the kings and the provinces; I acquired for myself various types of musical instruments, the delight of the sons of men, wagons and coaches. Kohelet 2:8


+ 266 So I became great, and I increased more than all who were before me in Jerusalem; also my wisdom remained with me. Kohelet 2:9


+ 275 And of all that my eyes desired I did not deprive them; I did not deprive my heart of any joy, but my heart rejoiced with all my toil, and this was my portion from all my toil. Kohelet 2:10


+ 291 Then I turned to look at all my deeds that my hands had wrought and upon the toil that I had toiled to do, and behold everything is vanity and frustration, and there is no profit under the sun. Kohelet 2:11


+ 339 And I turned to see wisdom and madness and folly, for what is the man who will come after the king, concerning that which they have already done? Kohelet 2:12


+ 234 And I saw that wisdom has an advantage over folly, as the advantage of light over darkness. Kohelet 2:13


+ 244 The wise man has eyes in its beginning, but the fool goes in the darkness, and I too know that one event happens to them all. Kohelet 2:14


+ 292 And I said to myself, "As it happens to the fool, so will it happen to me too, so why then did I become wiser?" And I said to myself that this too is vanity. Kohelet 2:15


+ 271 For there is no remembrance of the wise man even as of the fool forever, seeing that in the coming days, all is forgotten. And how shall the wise die with the fool? Kohelet 2:16


+ 264 So I hated the living, for the deed that was done under the sun grieved me, for everything is vanity and frustration. Kohelet 2:17


+ 274 And I hated all my toil that I toil under the sun, that I should leave it to the man who will be after me. Kohelet 2:18


+ 272 And who knows whether he will be wise or foolish. And he will rule over all my toil that I have toiled and that I have gained wisdom under the sun; this too is vanity. Kohelet 2:19


+ 281 And I turned about to cause my heart to despair concerning all the toil that I toiled under the sun. Kohelet 2:20


+ 291 For there is a man whose toil is with wisdom and with knowledge and with honesty and to a man who did not toil for it he will give it as his portion; this too is vanity and a great evil. Kohelet 2:21


+ 256 For what has a man out of all his toil and the breaking of his heart that he toils under the sun? Kohelet 2:22


+ 292 For all his days are pains and his occupation is vexation; even at night his heart does not rest; this too is vanity. Kohelet 2:23


+ 280 Is it not good for a man that he eat and drink and show himself enjoyment in his toil? This too have I seen that it is from the hand of God. Kohelet 2:24


+ 241 For who will eat and who will hasten to swallow it except me? Kohelet 2:25


+ 260 For to a man who is good in His sight, He has given wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to the sinner He has given an occupation to gather and to accumulate, to give to him who is good in God's sight; this too is vanity and frustration. Kohelet 2:26


+ 351 A time to give birth and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to uproot that which is planted. Kohelet 3:2


+ 252 I knew that there is nothing better for them but to rejoice and to do good during his lifetime. Kohelet 3:12


+ 246 All go to one place; all came from the dust, and all return to the dust. Kohelet 3:20


+ 240 Who knows that the spirit of the children of men is that which ascends on high and the spirit of the beast is that which descends below to the earth? Kohelet 3:21


+ 270 And I saw that there is nothing better than that man rejoice in his deeds, for that is his portion, for who will bring him to see what will be after him? Kohelet 3:22


+ 267 And I praise the dead who have already died, more than the living who are still alive. Kohelet 4:2


+ 277 And if a man prevails against the one, the two will stand against him, and a three- stranded cord will not quickly be broken. Kohelet 4:12


+ 240 For a dream comes with much concern, and the voice of the fool with many words. Kohelet 5:2


+ 255 There is a grievous evil that I saw under the sun; riches kept by their owner for his harm. Kohelet 5:12


+ 275 A man whom God gives riches and property and honor, and his soul lacks nothing of all he desires, and God gives him no power to eat of it, but a strange man eats it; this is vanity and a grievous sickness. Kohelet 6:2


+ 242 For who knows what is good for man in his lifetime, the number of the days of his life of vanity, that he do them like a shadow, for who will tell man what will be after him under the sun? Kohelet 6:12


+ 270 It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for that is the end of every man, and the living shall lay it to his heart. Kohelet 7:2


+ 262 For whoever is in the shade of wisdom is in the shade of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to its possessor. Kohelet 7:12


+ 232 For there is no righteous man on earth who does good and sins not. Kohelet 7:20


+ 237 You know that many times you have insulted others. Ecclesiastes 7:22


+ 302 For your heart knows that many times you too cursed others. Kohelet 7:22


+ 243 All this I tested with wisdom; I said, "I will become wise," but it was far from me. Kohelet 7:23


+ 225 What was is far off, and it is very deep, who can find it? Kohelet 7:24


+ 287 I turned about with my heart to know and to search out and to seek wisdom and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly and the foolishness and madness. Kohelet 7:25


+ 282 And I find more bitter than death the woman whose heart is snares and nets, her hands are bonds; whoever is good in God's sight will escape from her, and a sinner will be taken by her. Kohelet 7:26


+ 256 See, this I have found, said Koheleth, adding one to another to find out the account. Kohelet 7:27


+ 234 Which my soul sought yet, but I did not find; one man out of a thousand I found, but a woman among all these I did not find. Kohelet 7:28


+ 240 See, only this one have I found, for God made man straight, but they sought many intrigues. Kohelet 7:29


+ 322 I am prepared to observe the commandment of the King, and concerning the oath of God. Kohelet 8:2


+ 263 For a sinner does evil a hundred years, and He grants him an extension; but I know too that it will be good for those who fear God because they fear Him. Kohelet 8:12


+ 273 Everything comes to them as it comes to all; there is one occurrence for the righteous and for the wicked, for the good, and for the pure, and for the unclean, and for he who sacrifices, and for he who does not sacrifice; like the good, so is the sinner; he who swears is like him who fears an oath. Kohelet 9:2


+ 276 For a person does not even know his time, like the fish that are caught with an inferior trap and like the birds that are caught in the snare; like them, the children of men are trapped at a time of evil, when it falls upon them suddenly. Kohelet 9:12


+ 246 The heart of the wise man is at his right, whereas the heart of the fool is at his left. Kohelet 10:2


+ 241 The words of a wise man's mouth find favor, but a fool's lips will destroy him. Kohelet 10:12


+ 297 Even in your thought, you shall not curse a king, nor in your bedrooms shall you curse a wealthy man, for the bird of the heaven shall carry the voice, and the winged creature will tell the matter. Kohelet 10:20


+ 250 Give a portion to seven and even to eight, for you do not know what evil will be on the earth. Kohelet 11:2


+ 268 And remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of evil come, and years arrive, about which you will say, "I have no desire in them." Kohelet 12:1


+ 249 Before the sun, the light, the moon, and the stars darken, and the clouds return after the rain. Kohelet 12:2


+ 297 On the day that the keepers of the house tremble, and the mighty men are seized by cramps, and the grinders cease since they have become few, and those who look out of the windows become darkened. Kohelet 12:3


+ 266 And the doors shall be shut in the street when the sound of the mill is low, and one shall rise at the voice of a bird, and all the songstresses shall be brought low. Kohelet 12:4


+ 284 Also from the high places they will fear, and terrors on the road, and the almond tree will blossom, and the grasshopper will drag itself along, and sexual desire will fail, for man goes to his everlasting home, and the mourners go about in the street. Kohelet 12:5


+ 299 Before the silver cord snaps, and the golden fountain is shattered, and the pitcher breaks at the fountain, and the wheel falls shattered into the pit. Kohelet 12:6


+ 254 And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God, Who gave it. Kohelet 12:7


+ 241 "Vanity of vanities," said Koheleth; "all is vanity." Kohelet 12:8


+ 236 And more than this, Koheleth was wise, he also taught knowledge to the people; he listened and sought out, he established many proverbs. Kohelet 12:9


+ 241 Koheleth sought to find words of delight and properly recorded words of truth. Kohelet 12:10


+ 283 The words of the wise are like goads, and like well-fastened nails with large heads, given from one shepherd. Kohelet 12:11


+ 259 And more than they, my son, beware; making many books has no end, and studying much is a weariness of the flesh. Kohelet 12:12


+ 279 The end of the matter, everything having been heard, fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the entire man. Kohelet 12:13


+ 254 For every deed God will bring to judgment-for every hidden thing, whether good or bad. Kohelet 12:14


+ 304 I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. Michael Jordan


+ 285 The cure for Apple is not cost-cutting. The cure for Apple is to innovate its way out of its current predicament. Steve Jobs — Apple Confidential 2.0: The Definitive History of the World's Most Colorful Company 2004 by Owen W. Linzmayer


+ 279 Apple is a company that doesn't have the most resources of everybody in the world. The way we've succeeded is by choosing what horses to ride really carefully. We're organized like a startup. We're the biggest startup on the planet. Steve Jobs — All Things Digital DB conference, 2005


+ 303 You need a very product-oriented culture, even in a technology company. Lots of companies have tons of great engineers and smart people. But ultimately, there needs to be some gravitational force that pulls it all together. Otherwise, you can get great pieces of technology all floating around the universe. Steve Jobs — Newsweek, 2004


+ 282 You can't look back and say, well, gosh, you know, I wish I hadn't have gotten fired, I wish I was there, I wish this, I wish that. It doesn't matter. And so let's go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday. Steve Jobs — All Things Digital D5 conference, 2007


+ 259 The system is that there is no system. That doesn't mean we don't have process. Apple is a very disciplined company, and we have great processes. But that's not what it's about. Process makes you more efficient. Steve Jobs — Newsweek, 2004

+ 250 There are sneakers that cost more than an iPod. Steve Jobs — On the iPod's $300 price tag, Newsweek, 2003


+ 278 Well, you know us. We never talk about future products. There used to be a saying at Apple: Isn't it funny? A ship that leaks from the top. So — I don't wanna perpetuate that. So I really can't say. Steve Jobs — On any information regarding upcoming iPod releases, ABC News. 2005

+ 307 Customers think the price is realty good where it is. We're trying to compete with piracy — we're trying to pull people away from piracy and say, 'You can buy these songs legally for a fair price.' But if the price goes up a lot, they'll go back to piracy. Then, everybody loses. The HD revolution is over, it happened. HD won. Everybody wants. Steve Jobs — Apple Special Event keynote. 2010


+ 267 If I give you 20 bricks, you could lay them all on the ground and you'd have 20 bricks on the ground. Or you can lay them on top of each other and start building a wall. We hire people who want to make the best things in the world. Steve Jobs


+ 267 And boy, have we patented it! Steve Jobs — Introducing the iPhone, Macword2007


+ 326 My job is to not be easy on people. My job is to make them better. When I hire somebody really senior, competence is the ante. They have to be really smart. But the real issue for me is, Are they going to fall in love with Apple? Because if they fall in love with Apple, everything else will take care of itself. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2008


+ 275 My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other's kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That's how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people. Steve Jobs — 60 Minutes, 2003


+ 273 Some people say, 'Oh, God, if jobs got run over by a bus, would be in trouble.' And, you know, I think it wouldn't be a party, but there are really capable people at Apple. And the board would have some good choices about who to pick as CEO. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2008


+ 303 Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower. Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything. It's very fortunate if you can work on just one of these in your career-Apple's been very fortunate in that it's introduced a few of these.

+ 286 It's not about pop culture, and it's not about fooling people, and it's not about convincing people that they want something they don't. We figure out what we want. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2008


+ 319 And [innovation] comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don't get on the wrong track or try to do too much. We're always thinking about new markets we could enter, but it's only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 2004


+ 267 Take desktop video editing. I never got one request from someone who wanted to edit movies on his computer. Yet now that people see it, they say, 'Oh my God, that's great!' Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2000


+ 284 People think it's this veneer — that the designers are handed this box and told, 'Make it look good!' That's not what we think design is. It's not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.' Steve Jobs — The New York Times, 2003


+ 249 You know, you keep on innovating, you keep on making better stuff. And if you always want the latest and greatest, then you have to buy a new iPod at least once a year. Steve Jobs — MSNBC, 2006


+ 268 We're trying to make great products for people, and we at least have the courage of our convictions to say 'We don't think this is part of what makes a great product, we're going to leave it out' That's what a lot of customers pay us to do. Steve Jobs — All Things Digital, 2010


+ 288 …Innovation comes from people meeting up in the hallways or calling each other at 10:30 at night with a new idea, or because they realized something that shoots holes in how we've been thinking about a problem. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 2004


+ 307 We cook up new products. You never really know if people will love them as much as you do. The most exciting thing is you have butterflies in your stomach in the days leading up to these events. Steve Jobs — CNBC, 2007


+ 328 Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations. Take the iPhone. We had a different enclosure design for this iPhone until way too close to the introduction to ever change it. And I came in one Monday morning, I said, I just don't love this. I can't convince myself to fall in love with this. And this is the most important product we've ever done.' And we pushed the reset button. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2008

+ 334 I've seen the demonstrations on the Internet about how you can find another person using a Zune and give them a song they can play three times. It takes forever. By the time you've gone through all that, the girl's got up and left! You're much better off to take one of your ear buds out and put it in her ear. Then you're connected with about two feet of headphone cable. Steve Jobs — On competition between the iPod and Microsoft's Zune, NewsWeek, 2006


+ 295 The problem with the Internet startup craze isn't that too many people are starting companies; it's that too many people aren't sticking with it. That's somewhat understandable, because there are many moments that are filled with despair and agony, when you have to fire people and cancel things and deal with very difficult situations. That's when you find out who you are and what your values are. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2000

+ 265 When the Internet came along and Napster came along, people in the music business didn't know what to make of the changes. A lot of these folks didn't use computers, weren't on e-mail — didn't really know what Napster was for a few years. They were pretty doggone slow to react. Matter of fact, they still haven't really reacted. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone, 2003


+ 329 The engineering is long gone in most PC companies. In the consumer electronics companies, they don't understand the software parts of it. And so you really can't make the products that you can make at Apple anywhere else right now. Apple's the only company that has everything under one roof. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2003


+ 321 Pretty much, Apple and Dell are the only ones in this industry making money. They make it by being Wal-Mart. We make it by innovation. This is a story that's amazing. It's got theft, it's got buying stolen property, it's got extortion. I'm sure it's got sex in there somewhere. Somebody should make a movie out of this! Steve Jobs — On the circumstances surrounding an iPhone prototype that was discovered in a bar and published in an online technology blog, Gizmodo. All Things Digital, 2010

+ 318 I think it's brought the world a lot closer together, and will continue to do that. There are downsides to everything; there are unintended consequences to everything. The most corrosive piece of technology that I've ever seen is called television — but then, again, television, at its best, is magnificent. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone, 2003


+ 271 We think basically you watch television to turn your brain off, and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on. Steve Jobs— Macworld, 2004

+ 312 We want to stand at the intersection of computers and humanism. Why music? Well, we love music and it's always good to do something you love. Steve Jobs — Introducing the first iPod, 2001


+ 345 We're still heavily into the box. We love the box. I still spend a lot of my time working on new computers, and it will always be a primal thing for Apple. But the user experience is what we care about most, and we're expanding that experience beyond the box by making better use of the Internet. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2000


+ 270 The worst thing that could possibly happen as we get big and we get a little bit more influence in the world is if we change our core values and start letting it slide. I can't do that. I'd rather quit. We have the same values now as we had then. Steve Jobs — On whether the company should have gone after Gizmodo, All Things Digital, 2010


+ 263 Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future. People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you're doing and it's totally true. And the reason is because it's so hard that if you don't, any rational person would give up. Steve Jobs — All Things Digital D5 conference, 2007


+ 261 We're just enthusiastic about what we do. It's hard to tell with these Internet startups if they're really interested in building companies or if they're just interested in the money. I can tell you, though: If they don't really want to build a company, they won't luck into it. That's because it's so hard that if you don't have a passion, you'll give up. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2000

+ 316 That was one of the things that came out most clearly from this whole experience. I realized that I love my life. I really do. I've got the greatest family in the world, and I've got my work. And that's pretty much all I do. I don't socialize much or go to conferences. I love my family, and I love running Apple, and I love Pixar. And I get to do that. I'm very lucky.

Steve Jobs — Stanford University commencement address. 2005


+ 333 I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life. Steve Jobs — Stanford University commencement address, 2005

+ 285 Bottom line is, I didn't return to Apple to make a fortune. I've been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn't going to let it ruin my life. There's no way you could ever spend it all, and I don't view wealth as something that validates my intelligence. Steve Jobs

+ 324 At present, many of the ablest minds are trying to devise expedients for preventing a repetition of the awful conflict which is only theoretically ended and the duration and main issues of which I have correctly predicted in an article printed in the Sun of December 20, 1914. The proposed League is not a remedy but, on the contrary, in the opinion of a number of competent men, may bring about results just the opposite. It is particularly regrettable that a punitive policy was adopted in framing the terms of peace, because a few years hence, it will be possible for nations to fight without armies, ships or guns, by weapons far more terrible, to the destructive action and range of which there is virtually no limit. Any city, at a distance, whatsoever, from the enemy, can be destroyed by him and no power on earth can stop him from doing so. Nikola Tesla


+ 286 The year 2100 will see eugenics universally established. In past ages, the law governing the survival of the fittest roughly weeded out the less desirable strains.

+ 232 Now the earth was astonishingly empty, and darkness was on the face of the deep, and the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the water. Bereshit 1:2


+ 234 And the earth gave forth vegetation, seed yielding herbs according to its kind, and trees producing fruit, in which its seed is found, according to its kind, and God saw that it was good. Bereshit 1:12


+ 229 God said, The water shall teem with swarms of living creatures. Flying creatures shall fly over the land, on the face of the heavenly sky. Bereshit 1:20


+ 230 And God created the great sea monsters, and every living creature that crawls, with which the waters swarmed, according to their kind, and every winged fowl, according to its kind, and God saw that it was good. Bereshit 1:21


+ 219 God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful and become many, and fill the waters of the seas. Let the flying creatures multiply on the land. Bereshit 1:22


+ 192 It was evening and it was morning, a fifth day. Bereshit 1:23


+ 225 God said, The earth shall bring forth particular species of living creatures, particular species of livestock, land animals, and beasts of the earth. It happened. Bereshit 1:24


+ 195 And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kind and the cattle according to their kind, and all the creeping things of the ground according to their kind, and God saw that it was good. Bereshit 1:25


+ 209 God said, Let us make man with our image and likeness. Let him dominate the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock animals, and all the earth - and every land animal that walks the earth. Bereshit 1:26


+ 220 God thus created man with His image. In the image of God, He created him, male and female He created them. Bereshit 1:27


+ 213 God blessed them. God said to them, Be fertile and become many. Fill the land and conquer it. Dominate the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every beast that walks the land. Bereshit 1:28


+ 212 God said, Behold, I have given you every seedbearing plant on the face of the earth, and every tree that has seedbearing fruit. It shall be to you for food. Bereshit 1:29


+ 192 Heaven and earth, and all their components, were thus completed. Bereshit 2:1


+ 199 With the seventh day, God finished all the work that He had done. He thus ceased on the seventh day from all the work that He had been doing. Bereshit 2:2


+ 223 God blessed the seventh day, and He declared it to be holy, for it was on this day that God ceased from all the work that He had been creating so that it would continue to function. Bereshit 2:3


+ 191 These are the chronicles of heaven and earth when they were created, on the day God completed earth and heaven. Bereshit 2:4


+ 223 All the wild shrubs did not yet exist on the earth, and all the wild plants had not yet sprouted. This was because God had not brought rain on the earth, and there was no man to work the ground. Bereshit 2:5


+ 184 A mist rose up from the earth, and it watered the entire surface of the ground. Bereshit 2:6


+ 205 God formed man out of dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils a breath of life. Man thus became a living creature. Bereshit 2:7


+ 201 God planted a garden in Eden to the east. There He placed the man that He had formed. Bereshit 2:8


+ 215 God made grow out of the ground every tree that is pleasant to look at and good to eat, including the Tree of Life in the middle of the garden, and the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil. Bereshit 2:9


+ 206 A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden. From there it divided and became four major rivers. Bereshit 2:10


+ 195 The name of the first is Pishon. It surrounds the entire land of Havilah where gold is found. Bereshit 2:11


+ 196 The gold of that land is especially good. Also found there are pearls and precious stones. Bereshit 2:12


+ 182 The name of the second river is Gihon. It surrounds the land of Cush. Bereshit 2:13


+ 190 The name of the third river is the Tigris which flows to the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates. Bereshit 2:14


+ 219 God took the man and placed him in the Garden of Eden to work it and watch it. Bereshit 2:15


+ 195 God gave the man a commandment, saying, You may definitely eat from every tree of the garden. Bereshit 2:16


+ 184 But from the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil, do not eat, for on the day you eat from it, you will definitely die. Bereshit 2:17


+ 183 God said, It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a compatible helper for him. Bereshit 2:18


+ 227 God had formed every wild beast and every bird of heaven out of the ground. He now brought them to the man to see what he would name each one. Whatever the man called each living thing would remain its name. Bereshit 2:19


+ 197 The man named every livestock animal and bird of the sky, as well as all the wild beasts. But the man did not find a helper who was compatible for him. Bereshit 2:20


+ 183 God then made the man fall into a deep state of unconsciousness, and he slept. He took one of his ribs and closed the flesh in its place. Bereshit 2:21


+ 160 God built the rib that he took from the man into a woman, and He brought her to the man. Bereshit 2:22


+ 186 The man said, Now this is bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh. She shall be called Woman (Ishah) because she was taken from man (ish). Bereshit 2:23


+ 179 A man shall therefore leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Bereshit 2:24


+ 177 The man and his wife were both naked, but they were not embarrassed by one another. Bereshit 2:25


+ 173 The woman replied to the serpent, We may eat from the fruit of the trees of the garden. Bereshit 3:2


+ 182 The man replied, The woman that you gave to be with me - she gave me what I ate from the tree. Bereshit 3:12


+ 167 The man named his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all life. Bereshit 3:20


+ 186 God made leather garments for Adam and his wife and He clothed them. Bereshit 3:21


+ 220 God said, Man has now become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now he must be prevented from putting forth his hand and also taking from the Tree of Life. He can eat it and live forever! Bereshit 3:22


+ 169 God banished man from the Garden of Eden, to work the ground from which he was taken. Bereshit 3:23


+ 234 He drove away the man, and stationed the cherubim at the east of Eden, along with the revolving sword blade, to guard the path of the Tree of Life. Bereshit 3:24


+ 183 She gave birth again, this time to his brother Abel. Abel became a shepherd, while Cain was a worker of the soil. Bereshit 4:2


+ 205 When you work the ground, it will no longer give you of its strength. You will be restless and isolated in the world. Bereshit 4:12


+ 212 Adah gave birth to Yaval. He was the ancestor of all those who live in tents and keep herds. Bereshit 4:20


+ 258 His brother's name was Yuval. He was the ancestor of all who play the harp and flute. Bereshit 4:21


+ 188 Tzillah also had a son, Tuval Cain, a maker of all copper and iron implements. Tuval Cain's sister was Naamah. Bereshit 4:22


+ 204 Lemekh said to his wives, Adah and Tzillah, hear my voice; wives of Lemekh, listen to my speech. I have killed a man by wounding him, and a child by bruising him. Bereshit 4:23


+ 198 If Cain shall be revenged seven times, then for Lemekh it shall be seventy-seven times. Bereshit 4:24


+ 207 Adam knew his wife again, and she gave birth to a son. She named him Seth - Because God has granted (shath) me other offspring in place of Abel, whom Cain had killed. Bereshit 4:25


+ 209 A son was also born to Seth, and Seth named him Enosh. It was then initiated to pray with God's name. Bereshit 4:26


+ 187 He created them male and female. He blessed them and named them Man (Adam) on the day that they were created. Bereshit 5:2


+ 172 All of Seth's days were 912 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:8


+ 160 Kenan lived 70 years, and he had a son Mahalalel. Bereshit 5:12

+ 162 Enoch lived 65 years, and he had a son Methuselah. Bereshit 5:21


+ 184 Enoch walked with God for 300 years after he had Methuselah, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:22


+ 155 All of Enoch's days were 365 years. Bereshit 5:23


+ 154 Enoch walked with God, and he was no more, because God had taken him. Bereshit 5:24


+ 155 Methuselah lived 187 years, and he had a son Lemekh. Bereshit 5:25


+ 160 Methuselah lived 782 years after he had Lemekh, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:26


+ 172 All of Methuselah's days were 969 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:27


+ 166 Lemekh lived 182 years, and he had a son. Bereshit 5:28


+ 206 He named him Noah, saying, This one will bring us relief from our work and the anguish of our hands, from the soil that God has cursed. Bereshit 5:29


+ 183 Noah was 500 years old, and Noah fathered Shem, Ham, and Yefeth. Bereshit 5:32


+ 174 The sons of God saw that the daughters of man were good, and they took themselves wives from whomever they chose. Bereshit 6:2


+ 200 God said, My spirit will not continue to judge man forever, since he is nothing but flesh. His days shall be 120 years. Bereshit 6:3


+ 201 And God saw the earth, and behold it had become corrupted, for all flesh had corrupted its way on the earth. Bereshit 6:12


+ 200 Of the fowl after its kind and of the animals after their kind, of every creeping thing upon the ground after its kind; two of each shall come to you to preserve alive. Bereshit 6:20


+ 181 And you, take for yourself of every food that is eaten and gather it in to you, and it shall be for you and for them to eat. Bereshit 6:21


+ 204 And Noah did; according to all that God had commanded him, so he did. Bereshit 6:22


+ 195 Of all the clean animals you shall take for yourself seven pairs, a male and its mate, and of the animals that are not clean, two, a male and its mate. Bereshit 7:2


+ 271 And the rain was upon the earth for forty days and forty nights. Bereshit 7:12


+ 170 Fifteen cubits above did the waters prevail, and the mountains were covered up. Bereshit 7:20


+ 183 And all flesh perished that moved upon the earth, among the fowl, and among the cattle, and among the beasts, and among all creeping creatures that creep upon the earth and all mankind. Bereshit 7:21


+ 187 Everything that had the breath of the spirit of life in its nostrils, of all that were on the dry land, died. Bereshit 7:22


+ 236 And it the Flood blotted out all beings that were upon the face of the earth, from man to animal to creeping thing and to the fowl of the heavens, and they were blotted out from the earth, and only Noah and those with him in the ark survived. Bereshit 7:23


+ 177 And the water prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days. Bereshit 7:24


+ 189 And the springs of the deep were closed, and the windows of the heavens, and the rain from the heavens was withheld. Bereshit 8:2


+ 177 And he again waited another seven days, and he sent forth the dove, and it no longer continued to return to him. Bereshit 8:12


+ 196 And Noah built an altar to the Lord, and he took of all the clean animals and of all the clean fowl and brought up burnt offerings on the altar. Bereshit 8:20


+ 233 And the Lord smelled the pleasant aroma, and the Lord said to Himself, I will no longer curse the earth because of man, for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth, and I will no longer smite all living things as I have done. Bereshit 8:21


+ 219 So long as the earth exists, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Bereshit 8:22


+ 226 And your fear and your dread shall be upon all the beasts of the earth and upon all the fowl of the heaven; upon everything that creeps upon the ground and upon all the fish of the sea, for they have been given into your hands. Bereshit 9:2


+ 205 And God said: This is the sign of the covenant, which I am placing between Me and between you, and between every living soul that is with you, for everlasting generations. Bereshit 9:12


+ 184 And Noah began to be a master of the soil, and he planted a vineyard. Bereshit 9:20


+ 182 And he drank of the wine and became drunk, and he uncovered himself within his tent. Bereshit 9:21


+ 196 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness, and he told his two brothers outside. Bereshit 9:22


+ 223 And Shem and Japheth took the garment, and they placed it on both of their shoulders, and they walked backwards, and they covered their father's nakedness, and their faces were turned backwards, so that they did not see their father's nakedness. Bereshit 9:23


+ 209 And Noah awoke from his wine, and he knew what his small son had done to him. Bereshit 9:24


+ 192 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; he shall be a slave among slaves to his brethren. Bereshit 9:25


+ 190 And he said, Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem, and may Canaan be a slave to them. Bereshit 9:26


+ 194 May God expand Japheth, and may He dwell in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be a slave to them. Bereshit 9:27


+ 187 And Noah lived after the Flood, three hundred and fifty years. Bereshit 9:28

+ 185 And the Lord said to Abram, Go forth from your land and from your birthplace and from your father's house, to the land that I will show you. Bereshit 12:1


+ 184 And I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you, and I will aggrandize your name, and you shall be a blessing. Bereshit 12:2


+ 190 And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse, and all the families of the earth shall be blessed in you. Bereshit 12:3


+ 190 And Abram went, as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him, and Abram was seventy five years old when he left Haran. Bereshit 12:4


+ 197 And Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had acquired, and the souls they had acquired in Haran, and they went to go to the land of Canaan, and they came to the land of Canaan. Bereshit 12:5


+ 188 And Abram passed through the land, until the place of Shechem, until the plain of Moreh, and the Canaanites were then in the land. Bereshit 12:6


+ 179 And the Lord appeared to Abram, and He said, To your seed I will give this land, and there he built an altar to the Lord, Who had appeared to him. Bereshit 12:7


+ 197 And he moved from there to the mountain, east of Beth el, and he pitched his tent; Beth el was to the west and Ai was to the east, and there he built an altar to the Lord, and he called in the name of the Lord. Bereshit 12:8


+ 157 And Abram traveled, continually traveling southward. Bereshit 12:9


+ 202 And there was a famine in the land, and Abram descended to Egypt to sojourn there because the famine was severe in the land. Bereshit 12:10


+ 185 Now it came to pass when he drew near to come to Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, Behold now I know that you are a woman of fair appearance. Bereshit 12:11


+ 180 And it will come to pass when the Egyptians see you, that they will say, This is his wife, and they will slay me and let you live. Bereshit 12:12


+ 198 Please say that you are my sister, in order that it go well with me because of you, and that my soul may live because of you. Bereshit 12:13


+ 172 And it came to pass when Abram came to Egypt, that the Egyptians saw the woman, that she was very pretty. Bereshit 12:14


+ 179 And Pharaoh's princes saw her, and they praised her to Pharaoh, and the woman was taken to the house of Pharaoh. Bereshit 12:15


+ 208 And he benefited Abram for her sake, and he had flocks and cattle and he donkeys and men servants and maid servants, and she donkeys and camels. Bereshit 12:16


+ 194 And the Lord plagued Pharaoh with great plagues as well as his household, on account of Sarai, Abram's wife. Bereshit 12:17


+ 198 And Pharaoh summoned Abram, and he said, What is this that you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife? Bereshit 12:18


+ 186 Why did you say, She is my sister, so that I took her to myself for a wife? And now, here is your wife; take her and go. Bereshit 12:19


+ 174 And Pharaoh commanded men on his behalf, and they escorted him and his wife and all that was his. Bereshit 12:20


+ 180 And Abram was very heavy with cattle, with silver, and with gold. Bereshit 13:2


+ 194 Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain, and he pitched his tents until Sodom. Bereshit 13:12


+ 188 That they waged war with Bera the king of Sodom and with Birsha the king of Gomorrah, Shineab the king of Admah, and Shemeber the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar. Bereshit 14:2


+ 188 And they took Lot and his possessions, the son of Abram's brother, and they departed, and he was living in Sodom. Bereshit 14:12


+ 179 And blessed be the Most High God, Who has delivered your adversaries into your hand, and he gave him a tithe from all. Bereshit 14:20


+ 187 And the king of Sodom said to Abram, Give me the souls, and the possessions take for yourself. Bereshit 14:21


+ 184 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I raise my hand to the Lord, the Most High God, Who possesses heaven and earth. Bereshit 14:22


+ 179 Neither from a thread to a shoe strap, nor will I take from whatever is yours, that you should not say, I have made Abram wealthy. Bereshit 14:23


+ 205 Exclusive of what the lads ate, and the share of the men who went with me; Aner, Eshkol, and Mamre they shall take their share. Bereshit 14:24


+ 198 And Abram said, O Lord God, what will You give me, since I am going childless, and the steward of my household is Eliezer of Damascus? Bereshit 15:2


+ 189 Now the sun was ready to set, and a deep sleep fell upon Abram, and behold, a fright, a great darkness was falling upon him. Bereshit 15:12


+ 173 And the Hittites and the Perizzites and the Rephaim, Bereshit 15:20


+ 158 And the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Girgashites and the Jebusites. Bereshit 15:21


+ 217 And Sarai said to Abram, Behold now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing; please come to my handmaid; perhaps I will be built up from her. And Abram hearkened to Sarai's voice. Bereshit 16:2


+ 187 And he will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be upon all, and everyone's hand upon him, and before all his brothers he will dwell. Bereshit 16:12


+ 185 And I will place My covenant between Me and between you, and I will multiply you very greatly. Bereshit 17:2


+ 220 And at the age of eight days, every male shall be circumcised to you throughout your generations, one that is born in the house, or one that is purchased with money, from any foreigner, who is not of your seed. Bereshit 17:12


+ 187 And regarding Ishmael, I have heard you; behold I have blessed him, and I will make him fruitful, and I will multiply him exceedingly; he will beget twelve princes, and I will make him into a great nation. Bereshit 17:20


+ 204 But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this time next year. Bereshit 17:21


+ 187 And He finished speaking with him, and God went up from above Abraham. Bereshit 17:22


+ 229 And Abraham took Ishmael his son and all those born in his house and all those purchased with his money, every male of the people of Abraham's household, and he circumcised the flesh of their foreskin on that very day, as God had spoken with him. Bereshit 17:23


+ 204 And Abraham was ninety-nine years old, when he was circumcised of the flesh of his foreskin. Bereshit 17:24


+ 196 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised of the flesh of his foreskin. Bereshit 17:25


+ 173 On that very day, Abraham was circumcised, and so was Ishmael his son. Bereshit 17:26


+ 207 And all the people of his household, those born in his house and those bought with money from foreigners, were circumcised with him. Bereshit 17:27


+ 200 And he lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, three men were standing beside him, and he saw and he ran toward them from the entrance of the tent, and he prostrated himself to the ground. Bereshit 18:2


+ 184 And Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I have become worn out, will I have smooth flesh? And also, my master is old. Bereshit 18:12


+ 189 And the Lord said, Since the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah has become great, and since their sin has become very grave, Bereshit 18:20


+ 190 I will descend now and see, whether according to her cry, which has come to Me, they have done; I will wreak destruction upon them; and if not, I will know. Bereshit 18:21


+ 175 And the men turned from there and went to Sodom, and Abraham was still standing before the Lord. Bereshit 18:22


+ 189 And Abraham approached and said, Will You even destroy the righteous with the wicked? Bereshit 18:23


+ 180 Perhaps there are fifty righteous men in the midst of the city; will You even destroy and not forgive the place for the sake of the fifty righteous men who are in its midst? Bereshit 18:24


+ 171 Far be it from You to do a thing such as this, to put to death the righteous with the wicked so that the righteous should be like the wicked. Far be it from You! Will the Judge of the entire earth not perform justice? Bereshit 18:25


+ 164 And the Lord said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous men within the city, I will forgive the entire place for their sake. Bereshit 18:26


+ 190 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now I have commenced to speak to the Lord, although I am dust and ashes. Bereshit 18:27


+ 187 Perhaps the fifty righteous men will be missing five. Will You destroy the entire city because of five? And He said, I will not destroy if I find there forty-five. Bereshit 18:28


+ 175 And he continued further to speak to Him, and he said, Perhaps forty will be found there. And He said, I will not do it for the sake of the forty. Bereshit 18:29


+ 185 And he said, Please, let the Lord's wrath not be kindled, and I will speak yet this time, perhaps ten will be found there. And He said, I will not destroy for the sake of the ten. Bereshit 18:32


+ 208 And he said, Behold now my lords, please turn to your servant's house and stay overnight and wash your feet, and you shall arise early and go on your way. And they said, No, but we will stay overnight in the street. Bereshit 19:2


+ 177 And the men said to Lot, Whom else do you have here? A son-in-law, your sons, and your daughters, and whomever you have in the city, take out of the place. Bereshit 19:12


+ 204 Behold now, this city is near to flee there, and it is small. Let me please flee there. Is it not small? And my soul will survive. Bereshit 19:20


+ 176 And he said to him, Behold I have favored you also as regards this matter, that I will not overturn the city that you have mentioned. Bereshit 19:21


+ 187 Hasten, flee there, for I will not be able to do anything until you arrive there. Therefore, he named the city Zoar. Bereshit 19:22


+ 162 The sun came out upon the earth, and Lot came to Zoar. Bereshit 19:23


+ 179 And the Lord caused to rain down upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire, from the Lord, from heaven. Bereshit 19:24


+ 178 And He turned over these cities and the entire plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and the vegetation of the ground. Bereshit 19:25


+ 174 And his wife looked from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. Bereshit 19:26


+ 167 And Abraham arose early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. Bereshit 19:27


+ 193 And he looked over the face of Sodom and Gomorrah and over the entire face of the land of the plain, and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the earth had risen like the smoke of a furnace. Bereshit 19:28


+ 204 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and He sent Lot out of the midst of the destruction when He overturned the cities in which Lot had dwelt. Bereshit 19:29


+ 192 Come, let us give our father wine to drink, and let us lie with him, and let us bring to life seed from our father. Bereshit 19:32


+ 167 And Abraham traveled from there to the land of the south, and he dwelt between Kadesh and between Shur, and he sojourned in Gerar. Bereshit 20:1


+ 193 And Abraham said about Sarah his wife, She is my sister, and Abimelech the king of Gerar sent and took Sarah. Bereshit 20:2


+ 185 And God came to Abimelech in a dream of the night, and He said to him, Behold you are going to die because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is a married woman. Bereshit 20:3


+ 179 And Abimelech had not come near to her, and he said, O Lord, will You kill even a righteous nation? Bereshit 20:4


+ 187 Did he not say to me, She is my sister? And she, even she said, He is my brother. With the innocence of my heart and with the purity of my hands have I done this. Bereshit 20:5


+ 187 And God said to him in a dream, I too know that you did this with the innocence of your heart, and I too have withheld you from sinning to Me; therefore, I did not let you touch her. Bereshit 20:6


+ 196 And now, return the man's wife, because he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you will live; but if you do not return her, know that you will surely die, you and all that is yours. Bereshit 20:7


+ 187 And Abimelech arose early in the morning, and he summoned all his servants, and he spoke all these words in their ears; and the men were very frightened. Bereshit 20:8


+ 192 And Abimelech summoned Abraham and said to him, What have you done to us, and what have I sinned against you, that you have brought upon me and upon my kingdom a great sin? Deeds that are not done, you have done to me. Bereshit 20:9


+ 196 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What did you see, that you did this thing? Bereshit 20:10


+ 195 And Abraham said, For I said, Surely, there is no fear of God in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife. Bereshit 20:11


+ 196 And also, indeed, she is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife. Bereshit 20:12


+ 191 And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said to her: This is your kindness, which you shall do with me: whither we come, say about me, He is my brother. Bereshit 20:13


+ 210 And Abimelech took flocks and cattle and menservants and maidservants, and he gave them to Abraham, and he restored to him his wife Sarah. Bereshit 20:14


+ 187 And Abimelech said, Here is my land before you; wherever it pleases you, you may dwell. Bereshit 20:15


+ 209 And to Sarah he said, Behold I have given a thousand pieces of silver to your brother; behold it is to you a covering of the eyes for all who are with you, and with all you shall contend. Bereshit 20:16


+ 170 And Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his handmaids, and they gave birth. Bereshit 20:17


+ 205 For the Lord had shut every womb of Abimelech's household, because of Sarah, Abraham's wife. Bereshit 20:18


+ 160 And the Lord remembered Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did to Sarah as He had spoken. Bereshit 21:1


+ 202 And Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the time of which God had spoken to him. Bereshit 21:2


+ 198 And Abraham named his son who had been born to him, whom Sarah had borne to him, Isaac. Bereshit 21:3


+ 201 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. Bereshit 21:4


+ 192 And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born to him. Bereshit 21:5


+ 165 And Sarah said, God has made joy for me; whoever hears will rejoice over me. Bereshit 21:6


+ 178 And she said, Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children, for I have borne a son to his old age! Bereshit 21:7


+ 214 And the child grew and was weaned, and Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. Bereshit 21:8


+ 200 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, making merry. Bereshit 21:9


+ 201 And Sarah said to Abraham, Drive out this handmaid and her son, for the son of this handmaid shall not inherit with my son, with Isaac. Bereshit 21:10


+ 175 But the matter greatly displeased Abraham, concerning his son. Bereshit 21:11


+ 217 And God said to Abraham, Be not displeased concerning the lad and concerning your handmaid; whatever Sarah tells you, hearken to her voice, for in Isaac will be called your seed. Bereshit 21:12


+ 195 But also the son of the handmaid I will make into a nation, because he is your seed. Bereshit 21:13


+ 214 And Abraham arose early in the morning, and he took bread and a leather pouch of water, and he gave them to Hagar, he placed them on her shoulder, and the child, and he sent her away; and she went and wandered in the desert of Beer sheba. Bereshit 21:14


+ 177 And the water was depleted from the leather pouch, and she cast the child under one of the bushes. Bereshit 21:15


+ 217 And she went and sat down from afar, at about the distance of two bowshots, for she said, Let me not see the child's death. And she sat from afar, and she raised her voice and wept. Bereshit 21:16


+ 209 And God heard the lad's voice, and an angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, What is troubling you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the lad's voice in the place where he is. Bereshit 21:17


+ 190 Rise, pick up the lad and grasp your hand upon him, for I shall make him into a great nation. Bereshit 21:18


+ 168 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water, and she went and filled the pouch with water and gave the lad to drink. Bereshit 21:19


+ 171 And God was with the lad, and he grew, and he dwelt in the desert, and he became an archer. Bereshit 21:20


+ 179 And he dwelt in the desert of Paran, and his mother took for him a wife from the land of Egypt. Bereshit 21:21


+ 204 Now it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phicol his general said to Abraham, saying, God is with you in all that you do. Bereshit 21:22


+ 216 And now, swear to me here by God, that you will not lie to me or to my son or to my grandson; according to the kindness that I have done with you, you shall do with me, and with the land wherein you have sojourned. Bereshit 21:23


+ 182 And Abraham said, I will swear. Bereshit 21:24


+ 186 And Abraham contended with Abimelech about the well of water that the servants of Abimelech had forcibly seized. Bereshit 21:25


+ 173 And Abimelech said, I do not know who did this thing, neither did you tell me, nor did I hear of it until today. Bereshit 21:26


+ 165 And Abraham took flocks and cattle, and gave them to Abimelech, and they both formed a covenant. Bereshit 21:27


+ 187 And Abraham placed seven ewe lambs by themselves. Bereshit 21:28


+ 186 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What are these seven ewe lambs, which you have placed by themselves? Bereshit 21:29


+ 201 And he said, For these seven ewe lambs you shall take from my hand, in order that it be to me for a witness that I dug this well. Bereshit 21:30


+ 167 Therefore, he named that place Beer sheba, for there they both swore. Bereshit 21:31


+ 213 And they formed a covenant in Beer-sheba, and Abimelech and Phicol his general arose, and they returned to the land of the Philistines. Bereshit 21:32


+ 183 And he planted an eishel in Beer-Sheba, and he called there in the name of the Lord, the God of the world. Bereshit 21:33


+ 179 And Abraham dwelt in the land of the Philistines for many days. Bereshit 21:34


+ 206 And it came to pass after these things, that God tested Abraham, and He said to him, Abraham, and he said, Here I am. Bereshit 22:1


+ 247 And He said, Please take your son, your only one, whom you love, yea, Isaac, and go away to the land of Moriah and bring him up there for a burnt offering on one of the mountains, of which I will tell you. Bereshit 22:2


+ 230 And Abraham arose early in the morning, and he saddled his donkey, and he took his two young men with him and Isaac his son; and he split wood for a burnt offering, and he arose and went to the place of which God had told him. Bereshit 22:3


+ 177 On the third day, Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from afar. Bereshit 22:4


+ 187 And Abraham said to his young men, Stay here with the donkey, and I and the lad will go yonder, and we will prostrate ourselves and return to you. Bereshit 22:5


+ 192 And Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering, and he placed it upon his son Isaac, and he took into his hand the fire and the knife, and they both went together. Bereshit 22:6


+ 207 And Isaac spoke to Abraham his father, and he said, My father! And he said, Here I am, my son. And he said, Here are the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering? Bereshit 22:7


+ 186 And Abraham said, God will provide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son. And they both went together. Bereshit 22:8


+ 186 And they came to the place of which God had spoken to him, and Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and he bound Isaac his son and placed him on the altar upon the wood. Bereshit 22:9


+ 167 And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took the knife, to slaughter his son. Bereshit 22:10


+ 194 And an angel of God called to him from heaven and said, Abraham! Abraham! And he said, Here I am. Bereshit 22:11


+ 186 And he said, Do not stretch forth your hand to the lad, nor do the slightest thing to him, for now I know that you are a God fearing man, and you did not withhold your son, your only one, from Me. Bereshit 22:12


+ 213 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and he saw, and lo! there was a ram, and after that it was caught in a tree by its horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. Bereshit 22:13


+ 195 And Abraham named that place, The Lord will see, as it is said to this day: On the mountain, the Lord will be seen. Bereshit 22:14


+ 178 And an angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time from heaven. Bereshit 22:15


+ 202 And he said, By Myself have I sworn, says the Lord, that because you have done this thing and you did not withhold your son, your only one, Bereshit 22:16


+ 183 That I will surely bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand that is on the seashore, and your descendants will inherit the cities of their enemies. Bereshit 22:17


+ 182 And through your children shall be blessed all the nations of the world, because you hearkened to My voice. Bereshit 22:18


+ 197 And Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beer sheba; and Abraham remained in Beer sheba. Bereshit 22:19


+ 190 And it came to pass after these matters, that it was told to Abraham saying: Behold Milcah, she also bore sons to Nahor your brother. Bereshit 22:20


+ 174 Uz, his first born, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel, the father of Aram. Bereshit 22:21


+ 162 And Kesed and Hazo and Pildash and Jidlaph, and Bethuel. Bereshit 22:22


+ 189 And Bethuel begot Rebecca. These eight did Milcah bear to Nahor, Abraham's brother. Bereshit 22:23


+ 175 And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, had also given birth to Tebah and Gaham and Tahash and Maacah. Bereshit 22:24


+ 174 And the life of Sarah was one hundred years and twenty years and seven years; these were the years of the life of Sarah. Bereshit 23:1


+ 210 And Sarah died in Kiriath arba, which is Hebron, in the land of Canaan, and Abraham came to eulogize Sarah and to bewail her. Bereshit 23:2


+ 171 And Abraham arose from before his dead, and he spoke to the sons of Heth, saying, Bereshit 23:3


+ 166 I am a stranger and an inhabitant with you. Give me burial property with you, so that I may bury my dead from before me. Bereshit 23:4


+ 174 And the sons of Heth answered Abraham, saying to him, Bereshit 23:5


+ 234 Listen to us, my lord; you are a prince of God in our midst; in the choicest of our graves bury your dead. None of us will withhold his grave from you to bury your dead. Bereshit 23:6


+ 172 And Abraham arose and prostrated himself to the people of the land, to the sons of Heth. Bereshit 23:7


+ 188 And he spoke with them, saying, If it is your will that I bury my dead from before me, listen to me and entreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar. Bereshit 23:8


+ 201 That he may give me the Machpelah (double) Cave, which belongs to him, which is at the end of his field; for a full price let him give it to me in your midst for burial property. Bereshit 23:9


+ 208 Now Ephron was sitting in the midst of the sons of Heth, and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the hearing of the sons of Heth, of all those who had come into the gate of his city, saying, Bereshit 23:10


+ 209 No, my lord, listen to me. I have given you the field, and the cave that is in it, I have given it to you. Before the eyes of the sons of my people, I have given it to you; bury your dead. Bereshit 23:11


+ 165 And Abraham prostrated himself before the people of the land. Bereshit 23:12


+ 208 And he spoke to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, saying, But, if only you would listen to me. I am giving the money for the field; take it from me, and I will bury my dead there. Bereshit 23:13


+ 170 And Ephron replied to Abraham, saying to him, Bereshit 23:14


+ 197 My lord, listen to me; a piece of land worth four hundred shekels of silver, what is it between me and you? Bury your dead. Bereshit 23:15


+ 216 And Abraham listened to Ephron, and Abraham weighed out to Ephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, accepted by the merchant. Bereshit 23:16


+ 212 And so the field of Ephron which was in Machpelah, facing Mamre, was established as Abraham's possession. This included the field and the cave that was in it, and all the trees that were in the field, which were within its entire border around. Bereshit 23:17


+ 202 It was to Abraham as a possession before the eyes of the sons of Heth, in the presence of all who had come within the gate of his city. Bereshit 23:18


+ 211 And afterwards, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah, facing Mamre, which is Hebron, in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 23:19


+ 191 And the field and the cave within it were established to Abraham as burial property, purchased from the sons of Heth. Bereshit 23:20


+ 179 And Abraham was old, advanced in days, and the Lord had blessed Abraham with everything. Bereshit 24:1


+ 212 And Abraham said to his servant, the elder of his house, who ruled over all that was his, Please place your hand under my thigh. Bereshit 24:2


+ 193 And I will adjure you by the Lord, the God of the heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose midst I dwell. Bereshit 24:3


+ 306 But you shall go to my land and to my birthplace, and you shall take a wife for my son, for Isaac. Bereshit 24:4


+ 183 And the servant said to him, Perhaps the woman will not wish to go after me to this land. Shall I return your son to the land from which you came? Bereshit 24:5


+ 178 And Abraham said to him, Beware, lest you return my son back there. Bereshit 24:6


+ 234 The Lord, God of the heavens, Who took me from my father's house and from the land of my birth, and Who spoke about me, and Who swore to me, saying, To your seed will I give this land He will send His angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. Bereshit 24:7


+ 201 And if the woman will not wish to go after you, you will be absolved of this, my oath; only do not return my son back there. Bereshit 24:8


+ 162 And the servant placed his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and he swore to him concerning this matter. Bereshit 24:9


+ 210 And the servant took ten camels of his master's camels, and he went, and all the best of his master was in his hand; and he arose, and he went to Aram naharaim, to the city of Nahor. Bereshit 24:10


+ 171 And he made the camels kneel outside the city beside the well of water, at eventide, at the time the maidens go out to draw water. Bereshit 24:11


+ 207 And he said, O Lord, the God of my master Abraham, please cause to happen to me today, and perform loving kindness with my master, Abraham. Bereshit 24:12


+ 182 Behold, I am standing by the water fountain, and the daughters of the people of the city are coming out to draw water. Bereshit 24:13


+ 208 And it will be, that the maiden to whom I will say, Lower your pitcher and I will drink, and she will say, Drink, and I will also water your camels, her have You designated for Your servant, for Isaac, and through her may I know that You have performed loving kindness with my master. Bereshit 24:14


+ 213 Now he had not yet finished speaking, and behold, Rebecca came out, who had been born to Bethuel the son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, and her pitcher was on her shoulder. Bereshit 24:15


+ 200 Now the maiden was of very comely appearance, a virgin, and no man had been intimate with her, and she went down to the fountain, and she filled her pitcher and went up. Bereshit 24:16


+ 180 And the servant ran toward her, and he said, Please let me sip a little water from your pitcher. Bereshit 24:17


+ 188 And she said, Drink, my lord. And she hastened and lowered her pitcher to her hand, and she gave him to drink. Bereshit 24:18


+ 187 And she finished giving him to drink, and she said, I will also draw for your camels, until they will have finished drinking. Bereshit 24:19


+ 192 And she hastened, and she emptied her pitcher into the trough, and she ran again to the well to draw water, and she drew for all his camels. Bereshit 24:20


+ 192 And the man was astonished at her, standing silent, waiting to know whether the Lord had caused his way to prosper or not. Bereshit 24:21


+ 215 Now it came about, when the camels had finished drinking, that the man took a golden nose ring, weighing half a shekel, and two bracelets for her hands, weighing ten gold shekels. Bereshit 24:22


+ 177 And he said, Whose daughter are you? Please tell me. Is there place for us for lodging in your father's house? Bereshit 24:23


+ 179 And she said to him, I am the daughter of Bethuel, the son of Milcah, whom she bore to Nahor. Bereshit 24:24


+ 188 And she said to him, Both straw and fodder are plentiful with us; there is also a place to lodge. Bereshit 24:25


+ 165 And the man kneeled and prostrated himself to the Lord. Bereshit 24:26


+ 210 And he said, Blessed is the Lord, the God of my master, Abraham, Who has not forsaken His loving kindness and His truth from my master. As for me, the Lord led me on the road to the house of my master's kinsmen. Bereshit 24:27


+ 166 And the maiden ran, and she told her mother's house what had happened. Bereshit 24:28


+ 166 Now Rebecca had a brother whose name was Laban, and Laban ran to the man outside, to the fountain. Bereshit 24:29


+ 224 And it came to pass, when he saw the nose ring and the bracelets on his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of his sister Rebecca, saying, So did the man speak to me, that he came to the man, and behold, he was standing over the camels at the fountain. Bereshit 24:30


+ 166 And he said, Come, you who are blessed of the Lord. Why should you stand outside, when I have cleared the house, and a place for the camels? Bereshit 24:31


+ 186 So the man came to the house and unmuzzled the camels, and he gave straw and fodder to the camels and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men who were with him. Bereshit 24:32


+ 184 And food was set before him to eat, but he said, I will not eat until I have spoken my words. And he said, Speak. Bereshit 24:33


+ 179 And he said, I am Abraham's servant. Bereshit 24:34


+ 224 And the Lord blessed my master exceedingly, and he became great, and He gave him sheep and cattle, silver and gold, man servants and maid servants, camels and donkeys. Bereshit 24:35


+ 190 And Sarah, my master's wife, bore a son to my master after she had become old, and he gave him all that he possesses. Bereshit 24:36


+ 207 And my master adjured me, saying, You shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell. Bereshit 24:37


+ 180 Instead, you must go to my father's house and to my family, and take a wife for my son. Bereshit 24:38


+ 176 And I said to my master, Perhaps the woman will not follow me? Bereshit 24:39


+ 203 And he said to me, The Lord, before Whom I walked, will send His angel with you and make your way prosper, and you shall take a wife for my son from my family and from my father's house. Bereshit 24:40


+ 185 You will then be absolved from my oath, when you come to my family, and if they do not give her to you, you will be absolved from my oath. Bereshit 24:41


+ 226 So I came today to the fountain, and I said, O Lord, God of my master Abraham, if You desire to prosper my way upon which I am going Bereshit 24:42


+ 205 Behold, I am standing by the water fountain. When a maiden comes out to draw water, I will say to her, Please, give me a little water to drink from your pitcher. Bereshit 24:43


+ 207 And if she will say to me, You too may drink, and I will also draw water for your camels, she is the woman whom the Lord has designated for my master's son. Bereshit 24:44


+ 198 I had not yet finished speaking thus in my heart, and behold, Rebecca came out with her pitcher on her shoulder, and she went down to the fountain and drew water, and I said to her, Please give me to drink. Bereshit 24:45


+ 188 And she hastened and lowered her pitcher from upon her, and she said, Drink, and I will also water your camels. So I drank, and she also watered the camels. Bereshit 24:46


+ 214 And I asked her, and I said, Whose daughter are you? And she replied, The daughter of Bethuel the son of Nahor, whom Milcah bore to him. And I placed the nose ring on her nose and the bracelets on her hands. Bereshit 24:47


+ 203 And I kneeled and prostrated myself to the Lord, and I blessed the Lord, the God of my master Abraham, Who led me on the true path, to take the daughter of my master's brother for his son. Bereshit 24:48


+ 184 And now, if you will do loving kindness and truth with my master, tell me, and if not, tell me, and I will turn to the right or to the left. Bereshit 24:49


+ 186 And Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The matter has emanated from the Lord. We cannot speak to you either bad or good. Bereshit 24:50


+ 147 Behold Rebecca is before you, take her and go, and let her be a wife for your master's son, as the Lord has spoken. Bereshit 24:51


+ 266 Now it came to pass when Abraham's servant heard their words, that he prostrated himself on the ground to the Lord. Bereshit 24:52


+ 191 And the servant took out silver articles and golden articles and garments, and he gave them to Rebecca, and he gave delicacies to her brother and to her mother. Bereshit 24:53


+ 197 And they ate and drank, he and the men who were with him, and they lodged, and they arose in the morning, and he said, Send me away to my master. Bereshit 24:54


+ 193 And her brother and her mother said, Let the maiden stay with us a year or ten months; afterwards she will go. Bereshit 24:55


+ 183 But he said to them, Do not delay me, since the Lord has made my way prosper. Send me away, and I will go to my master. Bereshit 24:56


+ 167 And they said, Let us call the maiden and ask her. Bereshit 24:57


+ 185 And they summoned Rebecca, and they said to her, Will you go with this man? And she said, I will go. Bereshit 24:58


+ 198 So they sent away Rebecca their sister and her nurse and Abraham's servant and his men. Bereshit 24:59


+ 187 And they blessed Rebecca and said to her, Our sister, may you become thousands of myriads, and may your seed inherit the cities of their enemies. Bereshit 24:60


+ 167 And Rebecca and her maidens arose and rode on the camels, and they followed the man; and the servant took Rebecca and left. Bereshit 24:61


+ 181 Now Isaac was on his way, coming from Be'er Lachai Ro'i, and he dwelt in the land of the south. Bereshit 24:62


+ 181 And Isaac went forth to pray in the field towards evening, and he lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, camels were approaching. Bereshit 24:63


+ 200 And Rebecca lifted her eyes, and saw Isaac, and she let herself down from the camel. Bereshit 24:64


+ 183 And she said to the servant, Who is that man walking in the field towards us? And the servant said, He is my master. And she took the veil and covered herself. Bereshit 24:65


+ 174 And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. Bereshit 24:66


+ 216 And Isaac brought her to the tent of Sarah his mother, and he took Rebecca, and she became his wife, and he loved her. And Isaac was comforted for the loss of his mother. Bereshit 24:67


+ 181 And Abraham took another wife and her name was Keturah. Bereshit 25:1


+ 212 And she bore him Zimran and Jokshan and Medan and Midian and Jishbak and Shuah. Bereshit 25:2


+ 172 And Jokshan begot Sheba and Dedan, and the sons of Dedan were Ashurim, Letushim, and Leumim. Bereshit 25:3


+ 217 And the sons of Midian were Ephah and Epher and Enoch and Abida and Elda'ah; all these were the sons of Keturah. Bereshit 25:4


+ 197 And Abraham gave all that he possessed to Isaac. Bereshit 25:5


+ 204 And to the sons of Abraham's concubines, Abraham gave gifts, and he sent them away from his son Isaac while he Abraham was still alive, eastward to the land of the East. Bereshit 25:6


+ 173 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life that he lived: one hundred years and seventy years and five years. Bereshit 25:7


+ 193 And Abraham expired and died in a good old age, old and satisfied, and he was gathered to his people. Bereshit 25:8


+ 212 And Isaac and Ishmael his sons buried him in the Cave of Machpelah in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which faces Mamre, Bereshit 25:9


+ 180 The field that Abraham had bought from the sons of Heth there Abraham and his wife Sarah were buried. Bereshit 25:10


+ 205 Now it came to pass after Abraham's death, that God blessed his son Isaac, and Isaac dwelt near Be'er Lachai Ro'i. Bereshit 25:11


+ 195 Now these are the generations of Ishmael the son of Abraham, whom Hagar the Egyptian, the maidservant of Sarah, bore to Abraham. Bereshit 25:12


+ 179 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael by their names, according to their births: the firstborn of Ishmael was Nebaioth, and Kedar and Adbe'el and Mibsam, Bereshit 25:13


+ 155 And Mishma and Dumah and Massa, Bereshit 25:14


+ 159 Hadad and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedmah. Bereshit 25:15


+ 178 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names in their open cities and in their walled cities, twelve princes to their nations. Bereshit 25:16


+ 190 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael: one hundred years and thirty years and seven years; and he expired and died and was gathered to his people. Bereshit 25:17


+ 184 And they dwelt from Havilah to Shur, which borders on Egypt, going towards Asshur; before all his brothers he dwelt. Bereshit 25:18


+ 193 And these are the generations of Isaac the son of Abraham; Abraham begot Isaac. Bereshit 25:19


+ 217 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebecca the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean of Padan Aram, the sister of Laban the Aramean, to himself for a wife. Bereshit 25:20


+ 208 And Isaac prayed to the Lord opposite his wife because she was barren, and the Lord accepted his prayer, and Rebecca his wife conceived. Bereshit 25:21


+ 188 And the children struggled within her, and she said, If it be so, why am I like this? And she went to inquire of the Lord. Bereshit 25:22


+ 179 And the Lord said to her, Two nations are in your womb, and two kingdoms will separate from your innards, and one kingdom will become mightier than the other kingdom, and the elder will serve the younger. Bereshit 25:23


+ 157 And her days to give birth were completed, and behold, there were twins in her womb. Bereshit 25:24


+ 178 And the first one emerged ruddy; he was completely like a coat of hair, and they named him Esau. Bereshit 25:25


+ 199 And afterwards, his brother emerged, and his hand was grasping Esau's heel, and he named him Jacob. Now Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them. Bereshit 25:26


+ 205 And the youths grew up, and Esau was a man who understood hunting, a man of the field, whereas Jacob was an innocent man, dwelling in tents. Bereshit 25:27


+ 223 And Isaac loved Esau because his game was in his mouth, but Rebecca loved Jacob. Bereshit 25:28


+ 207 Now Jacob cooked a pottage, and Esau came from the field, and he was faint. Bereshit 25:29


+ 217 And Esau said to Jacob, Pour into me some of this red, red pottage, for I am faint; he was therefore named Edom. Bereshit 25:30


+ 177 And Jacob said, Sell me as of this day your birthright. Bereshit 25:31


+ 162 Esau replied, Behold, I am going to die; so why do I need this birthright? Bereshit 25:32


+ 190 And Jacob said, Swear to me as of this day; so he swore to him, and he sold his birthright to Jacob. Bereshit 25:33


+ 184 And Jacob gave Esau bread and a pottage of lentils, and he ate and drank and arose and left, and Esau despised the birthright. Bereshit 25:34


+ 211 And there was a famine in the land, aside from the first famine that had been in the days of Abraham, and Isaac went to Abimelech the king of the Philistines, to Gerar. Bereshit 26:1


+ 181 And the Lord appeared to him, and said, Do not go down to Egypt; dwell in the land that I will tell you. Bereshit 26:2


+ 200 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and I will bless you, for to you and to your seed will I give all these lands, and I will establish the oath that I swore to Abraham, your father. Bereshit 26:3


+ 193 And I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and I will give your seed all these lands, and all the nations of the earth will bless themselves by your seed, Bereshit 26:4


+ 193 Because Abraham hearkened to My voice, and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My instructions. Bereshit 26:5


+ 176 And Isaac dwelt in Gerar. Bereshit 26:6


+ 212 And the men of the place asked about his wife, and he said, She is my sister, because he was afraid to say, She is my wife, because he said, Lest the men of the place kill me because of Rebecca, for she is of comely appearance. Bereshit 26:7


+ 207 And it came to pass, when he had been there for many days, that Abimelech, the king of the Philistines, looked out of the window, and he saw, and behold, Isaac was jesting with Rebecca his wife. Bereshit 26:8


+ 250 So Abimelech called Isaac, and he said, Behold, she is your wife; so how could you have said, She is my sister? And Isaac said to him, Because I said, Lest I die because of her. Bereshit 26:9


+ 196 And Abimelech said, What have you done to us? The most prominent of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us. Bereshit 26:10


+ 250 And Abimelech commanded all the people, saying, Whoever touches this man or his wife shall be put to death. Bereshit 26:11


+ 184 And Isaac sowed in that land, and he found in that year a hundred fold, and the Lord blessed him. Bereshit 26:12


+ 167 And the man became great, and he grew constantly greater until he had grown very great. Bereshit 26:13


+ 181 And he had possessions of sheep and possessions of cattle and much production, and the Philistines envied him. Bereshit 26:14


+ 218 And all the wells that his father's servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father the Philistines stopped them up and filled them with earth. Bereshit 26:15


+ 207 And Abimelech said to Isaac, Go away from us, for you have become much stronger than we. Bereshit 26:16


+ 185 And Isaac went away from there, and he encamped in the valley of Gerar and dwelt there. Bereshit 26:17


+ 218 And Isaac again dug the wells of water which they had dug in the days of his father, Abraham, and the Philistines had stopped them up after Abraham's death; and he gave them names like the names that his father had given them. Bereshit 26:18


+ 191 And Isaac's servants dug in the valley, and they found there a well of living waters. Bereshit 26:19


+ 209 And the shepherds of Gerar quarreled with Isaac's shepherds, saying, The water is ours; so he named the well Esek, because they had contended with him. Bereshit 26:20


+ 182 And they dug another well, and they quarreled about it also; so he named it Sitnah. Bereshit 26:21


+ 180 And he moved away from there, and he dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it; so he named it Rehoboth, and he said, For now the Lord has made room for us, and we will be fruitful in the land. Bereshit 26:22


+ 162 And he went up from there to Beer sheba. Bereshit 26:23


+ 195 And the Lord appeared to him on that night and said, I am the God of Abraham, your father. Fear not, for I am with you, and I will bless you and multiply your seed for the sake of Abraham, My servant. Bereshit 26:24


+ 214 And he built an altar there, and he called in the name of the Lord, and he pitched his tent there, and Isaac's servants dug a well there. Bereshit 26:25


+ 153 And Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and a group of his companions and Pichol, his general. Bereshit 26:26


+ 197 And Isaac said to them, Why have you come to me, since you hate me, and you sent me away from you? Bereshit 26:27


+ 185 And they said, We have seen that the Lord was with you; so we said: Let there now be an oath between us, between ourselves and you, and let us form a covenant with you. Bereshit 26:28


+ 197 If you do not harm us, as we have not touched you, and as we have done with you only good, and we sent you away in peace, so do you now, blessed of the Lord. Bereshit 26:29


+ 169 So he made a feast for them, and they ate and drank. Bereshit 26:30


+ 208 And they arose early in the morning, and they swore one to the other, and Isaac escorted them, and they went away from him in peace. Bereshit 26:31


+ 198 And it came to pass on that day, that Isaac's servants came and told him about the well that they had dug, and they said to him, We have found water. Bereshit 26:32


+ 191 And he named it Shibah; therefore, the city is named Beer sheba until this very day. Bereshit 26:33


+ 160 And Esau was forty years old, and he married Judith, the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath, the daughter of Elon the Hittite. Bereshit 26:34


+ 180 And they were a vexation of the spirit to Isaac and to Rebecca. Bereshit 26:35


+ 206 It came to pass when Isaac was old, and his eyes were too dim to see, that he called Esau his elder son, and he said to him, My son, and he said to him, Here I am. Bereshit 27:1


+ 171 And he said, Behold now, I have grown old; I do not know the day of my death. Bereshit 27:2


+ 183 So, now, sharpen your implements, your sword and take your bow, and go forth to the field, and hunt game for me. Bereshit 27:3


+ 169 And make for me tasty foods as I like, and bring them to me, and I will eat, in order that my soul will bless you before I die. Bereshit 27:4


+ 217 But Rebecca overheard when Isaac spoke to Esau his son, and Esau went to the field to hunt game, to bring it. Bereshit 27:5


+ 206 And Rebecca said to Jacob her son, saying, Behold I have heard your father speaking to Esau your brother, saying, Bereshit 27:6


+ 173 Bring me game and make me tasty foods, and I will eat, and I will bless you before the Lord before my death. Bereshit 27:7


+ 173 And now my son, hearken to my voice, to what I am commanding you. Bereshit 27:8


+ 180 Go now to the flock, and take for me from there two choice kids, and I will make them tasty foods for your father, as he likes. Bereshit 27:9


+ 165 And you shall bring them to your father that he may eat, in order that he bless you before his death. Bereshit 27:10


+ 184 And Jacob said to Rebecca his mother, Behold, my brother Esau is a hairy man, whereas I am a smooth man. Bereshit 27:11


+ 191 Perhaps my father will touch me, and I will appear to him as a deceiver, and I will bring upon myself a curse and not a blessing. Bereshit 27:12


+ 201 And his mother said to him, On me is your curse, my son. Only hearken to my voice and go, take them for me. Bereshit 27:13


+ 174 So he went, and he took, and he brought them to his mother, and his mother made tasty foods, as his father liked. Bereshit 27:14


+ 195 And Rebecca took the costly garments of Esau, her elder son, which were with her in the house, and she dressed Jacob, her younger son. Bereshit 27:15


+ 176 And the hides of the kids she put on his hands and on the smoothness of his neck. Bereshit 27:16


+ 174 And she gave the tasty foods and the bread that she had made, into the hand of Jacob her son. Bereshit 27:17


+ 164 And he came to his father and said, My father! And he said, Here I am. Who are you, my son? Bereshit 27:18


+ 217 And Jacob said to his father, I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you have spoken to me. Please rise, sit down and eat of my game, so that your soul will bless me. Bereshit 27:19


+ 283 And Isaac said to his son, How is it that you have found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the Lord your God prepared it before me. Bereshit 27:20


+ 229 And Isaac said to Jacob, Please come closer, so that I may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not. Bereshit 27:21


+ 217 So Jacob drew near to Isaac his father, and he felt him, and he said, The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau. Bereshit 27:22


+ 187 And he did not recognize him because his hands were hairy like the hands of his brother Esau, and he blessed him. Bereshit 27:23


+ 164 And he said, Are you indeed my son Esau? And he said, I am. Bereshit 27:24


+ 176 And he said, Serve it to me that I may eat of the game of my son, so that my soul will bless you. And he served him, and he ate, and he brought him wine, and he drank. Bereshit 27:25


+ 201 And his father Isaac said to him, Please come closer and kiss me, my son. Bereshit 27:26


+ 187 And he came closer, and he kissed him, and he smelled the fragrance of his garments, and he blessed him, and he said, Behold, the fragrance of my son is like the fragrance of a field, which the Lord has blessed! Bereshit 27:27


+ 204 And may the Lord give you of the dew of the heavens and of the fatness of the earth and an abundance of grain and wine. Bereshit 27:28


+ 182 Nations shall serve you and kingdoms shall bow down to you; you shall be a master over your brothers, and your mother's sons shall bow down to you. Those who curse you shall be cursed, and those who bless you shall be blessed. Bereshit 27:29


+ 212 And it came to pass, when Isaac had finished blessing Jacob, and it came to pass Jacob had just left his father Isaac's presence, that his brother Esau came from his hunt. Bereshit 27:30


+ 199 And he too had made tasty foods, and he brought them to his father, and he said to his father, Let my father arise and eat of the game of his son, so that your soul will bless me. Bereshit 27:31


+ 186 And his father Isaac said to him, Who are you? And he said, I am your son, your firstborn, Esau. Bereshit 27:32


+ 257 And Isaac shuddered a great shudder, and he said, Who then is the one who hunted game and brought it to me, and I ate of everything while you had not yet come, and I blessed him? He, too, shall be blessed. Bereshit 27:33


+ 185 When Esau heard his father's words, he cried out a great and bitter cry, and he said to his father, Bless me too, O my father! Bereshit 27:34


+ 179 And he said, Your brother came with cunning and took your blessing. Bereshit 27:35


+ 217 And he said, Is it for this reason that he was named Jacob? For he has deceived me twice; he took my birthright, and behold, now he has taken my blessing. And he said, Have you not reserved a blessing for me? Bereshit 27:36


+ 223 And Isaac answered and said to Esau, Behold, I made him a master over you, and I gave him all his brothers as servants, and I have sustained him with corn and wine; so for you then, what shall I do, my son? Bereshit 27:37


+ 169 And Esau said to his father, Have you but one blessing, my father? Bless me too, my father. And Esau raised his voice and wept. Bereshit 27:38


+ 208 And his father Isaac answered and said to him, Behold, your dwelling place shall be the fat places of the earth and of the dew of the heaven from above. Bereshit 27:39


+ 192 And you shall live by your sword, and you shall serve your brother, and it will be, when you grieve, that you will break his yoke off your neck. Bereshit 27:40


+ 219 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing that his father had blessed him, and Esau said to himself, Let the days of mourning for my father draw near, I will then kill my brother Jacob. Bereshit 27:41


+ 201 And Rebecca was told of the words of Esau, her elder son, and she sent and called Jacob, her younger son, and she said to him, "Behold, your brother Esau regrets his relationship to you and wishes to kill you. Bereshit 27:42


+ 177 And now, my son, hearken to my voice, and arise, flee to my brother Laban, to Haran. Bereshit 27:43


+ 174 And you shall dwell with him for a few days until your brother's wrath has subsided. Bereshit 27:44


+ 184 Until your brother's rage subsides from you, and he forgets what you did to him, and I will send and bring you from there. Why should I be bereft of both of you on one day? Bereshit 27:45


+ 222 And Rebecca said to Isaac, I am disgusted with my life because of the daughters of Heth. If Jacob takes a wife of the daughters of Heth like these, from the daughters of the land, of what use is life to me? Bereshit 27:46


+ 212 And Isaac called Jacob and blessed him, and he commanded him and said to him, You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Bereshit 28:1


+ 203 Arise, go to Padan aram, to the house of Bethuel, your mother's father, and take yourself from there a wife of the daughters of Laban, your mother's brother. Bereshit 28:2


+ 193 And may the Almighty God bless you and make you fruitful and multiply you, and you shall become an assembly of peoples. Bereshit 28:3


+ 202 And may He give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your seed with you, that you may inherit the land of your sojournings, which God gave to Abraham. Bereshit 28:4


+ 207 And Isaac sent Jacob, and he went to Padan aram, to Laban the son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebecca, the mother of Jacob and Esau. Bereshit 28:5


+ 239 And Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Padan aram, to take himself a wife from there, and that when he blessed him, he commanded him, saying, You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Bereshit 28:6


+ 178 And Jacob listened to his father and his mother, and he went to Padan aram. Bereshit 28:7


+ 182 And Esau saw that the daughters of Canaan were displeasing to his father Isaac. 28:8


+ 177 So Esau went to Ishmael, and he took Mahalath, the daughter of Ishmael, the son of Abraham, the sister of Nebaioth, in addition to his other wives as a wife. Bereshit 28:9


+ 191 And Jacob left Beer sheba, and he went to Haran. Bereshit 28:10


+ 194 And he arrived at the place and lodged there because the sun had set, and he took some of the stones of the place and placed them at his head, and he lay down in that place. Bereshit 28:11


+ 188 And he dreamed, and behold! a ladder set up on the ground and its top reached to heaven; and behold, angels of God were ascending and descending upon it. Bereshit 28:12


+ 195 And behold, the Lord was standing over him, and He said, I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac; the land upon which you are lying to you I will give it and to your seed. Bereshit 28:13


+ 199 And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall gain strength westward and eastward and northward and southward; and through you shall be blessed all the families of the earth and through your seed. Bereshit 28:14


+ 200 And behold, I am with you, and I will guard you wherever you go, and I will restore you to this land, for I will not forsake you until I have done what I have spoken concerning you. Bereshit 28:15


+ 200 And Jacob awakened from his sleep, and he said, Indeed, the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it. Bereshit 28:16


+ 230 And he was frightened, and he said, How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. Bereshit 28:17


+ 211 And Jacob arose early in the morning, and he took the stone that he had placed at his head, and he set it up as a monument, and he poured oil on top of it. Bereshit 28:18


+ 181 And he named the place Beth El, but Luz was orignally the name of the city. Bereshit 28:19


+ 195 And Jacob uttered a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and He will guard me on this way, upon which I am going, and He will give me bread to eat and a garment to wear; Bereshit 28:20


+ 166 And if I return in peace to my father's house, and the Lord will be my God; Bereshit 28:21


+ 182 Then this stone, which I have placed as a monument, shall be a house of God, and everything that You give me, I will surely tithe to You. Bereshit 28:22


+ 194 Now Jacob lifted his feet and went to the land of the people of the East. Bereshit 29:01


+ 200 And he looked, and behold! a well in the field, and behold! three flocks of sheep lying beside it, because from that well they would water the flocks, and a huge rock was upon the mouth of the well. Bereshit 29:02


+ 198 And all the flocks would gather there, and they would roll the rock off the mouth of the well and water the sheep, and then they would return the rock onto the mouth of the well, to its place. Bereshit 29:3


+ 184 And Jacob said to them, My brothers, where are you from? And they said, We are from Haran. 29:4


+ 180 And he said to them, Do you know Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him. Bereshit 29:5


+ 173 And he said to them, Are things going well with him? And they said, Things are going well, and behold, his daughter Rachel is coming with the sheep. Bereshit 29:6


+ 176 And he said, The day is yet long; it is not the time to take in the livestock. Water the sheep and go, pasture. Bereshit 29:7


+ 228 And they said, We cannot do that, until all the flocks are gathered together, and they will roll the rock off the mouth of the well, and we shall then water the sheep. Bereshit 29:8


+ 178 While he was still talking with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep, for she was a shepherdess. Bereshit 29:9


+ 223 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel, the daughter of Laban, his mother's brother and the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother, that Jacob drew near and rolled the rock off the mouth of the well, and he watered the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother. Bereshit 29:10


+ 203 And Jacob kissed Rachel, and he raised his voice and wept. Bereshit 29:11


+ 187 And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's kinsman and that he was Rebecca's son, and she ran and told her father. Bereshit 29:12


+ 199 Now it came to pass when Laban heard the report of Jacob, his sister's son, that he ran towards him, and he embraced him, and he kissed him, and he brought him into his house. He told Laban all these happenings. Bereshit 29:13


+ 183 And Laban said to him, Indeed, you are my bone and my flesh. And so he stayed with him a full month. Bereshit 29:14


+ 215 And Laban said to Jacob, Because you are my kinsman, should you work for me gratis? Tell me what your wages shall be. Bereshit 29:15


+ 188 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Bereshit 29:16


+ 170 Leah's eyes were tender, but Rachel had beautiful features and a beautiful complexion. Bereshit 29:17


+ 224 And Jacob loved Rachel, and he said, I will work for you seven years for Rachel, your younger daughter. Bereshit 29:19


+ 178 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to you than I should give her to another man. Stay with me. Bereshit 29:19


+ 212 So Jacob worked for Rachel seven years, but they appeared to him like a few days because of his love for her. Bereshit 29:20


+ 198 And Jacob said to Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are completed, that I may come to her. Bereshit 29:21


+ 196 So Laban gathered all the people of the place, and he made a feast. Bereshit 29:22


+ 161 And it came to pass in the evening that Laban took his daughter Leah, and he brought her to him, and he came to her. Bereshit 29:23


+ 161 And Laban gave Zilpah his maidservant to his daughter Leah as a maidservant. Bereshit 29:24


+ 208 And it came to pass in the morning, and behold she was Leah! So he said to Laban, What is this that you have done to me? Did I not work with you for Rachel? Why have you deceived me? Bereshit 29:25


+ 165 And Laban said, It is not done so in our place to give the younger one before the firstborn. Bereshit 29:26


+ 187 Complete the wedding week of this one, and we will give you this one too, for the work that you will render me for another seven years. Bereshit 29:27


+ 195 And Jacob did so, and he completed the week of this one, and he gave his daughter Rachel to him as a wife. Bereshit 29:28


+ 174 And Laban gave his daughter Rachel his maidservant Bilhah, for a maidservant. Bereshit 29:29


+ 203 And he came also to Rachel, and he also loved Rachel more than Leah; and he worked with him yet another seven years. Bereshit 29:30


+ 176 And the Lord saw that Leah was hated, so He opened her womb; but Rachel was barren. Bereshit 29:31


+ 223 And Leah conceived and bore a son, and she named him Reuben, for she said, Because the Lord has seen my affliction, for now my husband will love me. Bereshit 29:32


+ 194 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she said, Since the Lord has heard that I am hated, He gave me this one too. So she named him Simeon. Bereshit 29:33


+ 211 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she said, Now this time my husband will be attached to me, for I have borne him three sons; therefore, He named him Levi. Bereshit 29:34


+ 187 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she said, This time, I will thank the Lord! Therefore, she named him Judah, and then she stopped bearing. Bereshit 29:35


+ 199 And Jacob became angry with Rachel, and he said, Am I instead of God, Who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb? Bereshit 30:2


+ 189 And Zilpah, Leah's maidservant, bore Jacob a second son. Bereshit 30:12


+ 204 And Leah said, God has given me a good portion. This time, my husband will live with me, for I have borne him six sons; so she named him Zebulun. Bereshit 30:20


+ 179 And afterwards, she bore a daughter, and she named her Dinah. Bereshit 30:21


+ 173 And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and He opened her womb. Bereshit 30:22


+ 202 And she conceived and bore a son, and she said, God has taken away my reproach. Bereshit 30:23


+ 194 So she named him Joseph, saying, May the Lord grant me yet another son! Bereshit 30:24


+ 221 It came to pass when Rachel had borne Joseph, that Jacob said to Laban, Send me away, and I will go to my place and to my land. Bereshit 30:25


+ 184 Give me my wives and my children for whom I worked for you, and I will go, for you know my work, which I have worked for you. Bereshit 30:26


+ 185 And Laban said to him, If only I have now found favor in your eyes! I have divined, and the Lord has blessed me for your sake. Bereshit 30:27


+ 184 Then he said, Specify your wages for me, and I will give them. Bereshit 30:28


+ 176 And he said to him, You know how I have worked for you and how your livestock was with me. Bereshit 30:29


+ 226 I will pass throughout all your flocks today, removing from there every speckled and spotted kid, and every brown lamb among the sheep, and every spotted and speckled one from among the goats, and this shall be my wages. Bereshit 30:32


+ 217 But if the animals would delay, he would not place them, so that the ones that delayed were Laban's, and the ones that bore their first became Jacob's. Bereshit 30:42


+ 200 And Jacob saw Laban's countenance, that he was not disposed toward him as he had been yesterday and the day before. Bereshit 31:2


+ 209 And he said, Now lift your eyes and see that all the he goats mounting the animals are ringed, speckled, and striped, for I have seen all that Laban is doing to you. Bereshit 31:12


+ 208 And Jacob concealed from Laban the Aramean by not telling him that he was fleeing. Bereshit 31:20


+ 187 So he and all that were his fled, and he arose and crossed the river, and he directed his face toward Mount Gilead. Bereshit 31:21


+ 190 On the third day, Laban was informed that Jacob had fled. Bereshit 31:22


+ 170 So he took his kinsmen with him, and he pursued him seven days journey, and he overtook him at Mount Gilead. Bereshit 31:23


+ 212 And God came to Laban the Aramean in a dream of the night, and He said to him, Beware lest you speak with Jacob either good or evil. Bereshit 31:24


+ 188 And Laban overtook Jacob, and Jacob pitched his tent on the mountain, and Laban pitched with his kinsmen on Mount Gilead. Bereshit 31:25


+ 220 And Laban said to Jacob, What have you done, that you concealed from me, and led away my daughters like prisoners of war? Bereshit 31:26


+ 213 Why have you fled secretly, and concealed from me, and not told me? I would have sent you away with joy and with songs, and with drum and with harp. Bereshit 31:27


+ 179 And you did not allow me to kiss my sons and daughters. Now, you have acted foolishly. Bereshit 31:28


+ 208 I have the power to inflict harm upon you, but the God of your father spoke to me last night, saying, Beware of speaking with Jacob either good or bad. Bereshit 31:29


+ 227 The one with whom you find your gods shall not live. In the presence of our brothers, recognize for yourself what is with me, and take it for yourself. For Jacob did not know that Rachel had stolen them. Bereshit 31:32


+ 224 Had not the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, been for me, you would now have sent me away empty handed. God has seen my affliction and the toil of my hands, and He reproved you last night. Bereshit 31:42


+ 156 This pile is a witness, and this monument is a witness, that I will not pass this pile to go to you and that you shall not pass this pile and this monument to come to me to do harm. Bereshit 31:52


+ 169 And Laban arose early in the morning and kissed his sons and daughters and blessed them, and Laban went and returned to his place. Bereshit 32:1


+ 184 And Jacob went on his way, and angels of God met him. Bereshit 32:2


+ 182 And Jacob said when he saw them, This is the camp of God, and he named the place Mahanaim. Bereshit 32:3


+ 172 Jacob sent angels ahead of him to his brother Esau, to the land of Seir, the field of Edom. Bereshit 32:4


+ 175 And he commanded them, saying, So shall you say to my master to Esau, Thus said your servant Jacob, I have sojourned with Laban, and I have tarried until now. Bereshit 32:5


+ 188 And I have acquired oxen and donkeys, flocks, manservants, and maidservants, and I have sent to tell this to my master, to find favor in your eyes. Bereshit 32:6


+ 181 The angels returned to Jacob, saying, We came to your brother, to Esau, and he is also coming toward you, and four hundred men are with him. Bereshit 32:7


+ 218 Jacob became very frightened and was distressed; so he divided the people who were with him and the flocks and the cattle and the camels into two camps. Bereshit 32:8


+ 166 And he said, If Esau comes to one camp and strikes it down, the remaining camp will escape. Bereshit 32:9


+ 213 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, the Lord, Who said to me, Return to your land and to your birthplace, and I will do good to you. Bereshit 32:10


+ 194 I have become small from all the kindnesses and from all the truth that You have rendered Your servant, for with my staff I crossed this Jordan, and now I have become two camps. Bereshit 32:11


+ 150 Now deliver me from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau, for I am afraid of him, lest he come and strike me, and strike a mother with children. Bereshit 32:12


+ 179 And You said, I will surely do good with you, and I will make your seed as numerous as the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted because of multitude. Bereshit 32:13


+ 166 So he lodged there on that night, and he took from what came into his hand a gift for his brother Esau: Bereshit 32:14


+ 149 Two hundred she goats and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, Bereshit 32:15


+ 193 Thirty nursing camels with their young, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty she donkeys and ten he donkeys. Bereshit 32:16


+ 167 And he gave into the hands of his servants each herd individually, and he said to his servants, Pass on ahead of me and make a space between one herd and another herd. Bereshit 32:17


+ 175 And he commanded the first one, saying, When my brother Esau meets you, and asks you, saying, To whom do you belong, and where are you going, and for whom are these before you? Bereshit 32:18


+ 221 You shall say, I belong to your servant Jacob; it is a gift sent to my master, to Esau, and behold, he himself is behind us. Bereshit 32:19


+ 182 And he commanded also the second one, also the third one, also all those who followed the herds, saying, "In this manner shall you speak to Esau when you meet him. Bereshit 32:20


+ 197 And you shall say, Also, behold, your servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease his anger with the gift that is going before me, and afterwards I will see his face, perhaps he will favor me. Bereshit 32:21


+ 167 So the gift passed on before him, and he lodged that night in the camp. Bereshit 32:22


+ 157 And he arose during that night, and he took his two wives and his two maidservants and his eleven children, and he crossed the ford of the Jabbok. Bereshit 32:23


+ 149 And he took them and brought them across the stream, and he took across what was his. Bereshit 32:24


+ 168 And Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until the break of dawn. Bereshit 32:25


+ 232 When he saw that he could not prevail against him, he touched the socket of his hip, and the socket of Jacob's hip became dislocated as he wrestled with him. Bereshit 32:26


+ 183 And the angel said, Let me go, for dawn is breaking, but Jacob said, I will not let you go unless you have blessed me. Bereshit 32:27


+ 170 So he said to him, What is your name? and he said, Jacob. Bereshit 32:28


+ 220 And he said, Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, because you have commanding power with an angel of God and with men, and you have prevailed. Bereshit 32:29


+ 201 And Jacob asked and said, Now tell me your name, and he said, Why is it that you ask for my name? And he blessed him there. Bereshit 32:30


+ 192 And Jacob named the place Peniel, for he said, I saw an angel face to face, and my soul was saved. Bereshit 32:31


+ 160 And the sun rose for him when he passed Penuel, and he was limping on his thigh. Bereshit 32:32


+ 204 Therefore, the children of Israel may not eat the displaced tendon, which is on the socket of the hip, until this day, for he touched the socket of Jacob's hip, in the hip sinew. Bereshit 32:33


+ 168 And he placed the maidservants and their children first and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and her Joseph last. Bereshit 33:2


+ 162 Thereupon, he said, Travel and we will go, and I will go alongside you. Bereshit 33:12


+ 150 There he erected an altar, and he named it "God is the God of Israel." Bereshit 33:20


+ 150 And Shechem the son of Hamor, the Hivvite, the prince of the land, saw her, and he took her, lay with her, and violated her. Bereshit 34:2


+ 151 Impose upon me a large marriage settlement and gifts, and I will give as much as you ask of me, but give me the girl for a wife." Bereshit 34:12


+ 148 And Hamor and his son Shechem came to the gate of their city, and they spoke to the people of their city, saying, Bereshit 34:20


+ 144 These men are peaceful with us, and they will dwell in the land and do business there, and the land behold it is spacious enough for them. We will take their daughters for ourselves as wives, and we will give them our daughters. Bereshit 34:21


+ 155 However, only with this condition will the men consent to dwell with us, to become one people, by every male among us being circumcised, just as they are circumcised. Bereshit 34:22


+ 154 And all those coming out of the gate of his city listened to Hamor and his son Shechem, and every male, all who went out of the gate of his city, became circumcised. Bereshit 34:24


+ 237 Now it came to pass on the third day, when they were in pain, that Jacob's two sons, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, each took his sword, and they came upon the city with confidence, and they slew every male. Bereshit 34:25


+ 143 And Hamor and his son Shechem they slew with the edge of the sword, and they took Dinah out of Shechem's house and left. Bereshit 34:26


+ 163 Jacob's sons came upon the slain and plundered the city that had defiled their sister. Bereshit 34:27


+ 167 Their flocks and their cattle and their donkeys, and whatever was in the city and whatever was in the field they took. Bereshit 34:28


+ 158 And all their wealth and all their infants and their wives they captured and plundered, and all that was in the house. Bereshit 34:29


+ 205 Thereupon Jacob said to his household and to all those who were with him, Remove the deities of the foreign nations, which are in your midst, purify yourselves and change your clothes. Bereshit 35:2


+ 192 And the land that I gave to Abraham and to Isaac, I will give to you and to your seed after you will I give the land." Bereshit 35:12


+ 171 And Jacob erected a monument on her grave; that is the tombstone of Rachel until this day. Bereshit 35:20


+ 154 Israel journeyed, and he pitched his tent at some distance past the Tower of Eder. Bereshit 35:21


+ 188 And it came to pass when Israel sojourned in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah, his father's concubine, and Israel heard of it, and so, the sons of Jacob were twelve. Bereshit 35:22


+ 176 The sons of Leah were Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun. Bereshit 35:23


+ 146 The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin. Bereshit 35:24


+ 138 The sons of Bilhah, Rachel's maidservant: Dan and Naphtali. Bereshit 35:25


+ 182 The sons of Zilpah, Leah's maidservant: Gad and Asher. These are Jacob's sons who were born to him in Padan aram. Bereshit 35:26


+ 170 And Jacob came to his father Isaac, to Mamre, Kiriath arba, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac dwelt. Bereshit 35:27


+ 177 The days of Isaac were a hundred and eighty years. Bereshit 35:28


+ 193 And Isaac expired and died and was gathered in to his peoples, old and sated with days, and his sons, Esau and Jacob, buried him. Bereshit 35:29


+ 154 Esau took his wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah, daughter of Elon the Hittite; and Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, daughter of Zibeon the Hivvite; Bereshit 36:2


+ 150 And Timna was a concubine to Eliphaz, son of Esau, and she bore to Eliphaz, Amalek. These are the sons of Adah, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:12


+ 162 These are the sons of Seir the Horite, the inhabitants of the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, and Anah; Bereshit 36:20


+ 139 Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These are the chieftains of the Horites, the sons of Seir in the land of Edom. Bereshit 36:21


+ 131 The sons of Lotan were Hori and Hemam, and the sister of Lotan was Timna. Bereshit 36:22


+ 149 And these are the sons of Shobal: Alvan, Manahath, and Ebal, Shepho and Onam. Bereshit 36:23


+ 166 And these are the sons of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah he is Anah who found the mules in the wilderness when he pastured the donkeys for his father Zibeon. Bereshit 36:24


+ 135 And these are the sons of Anah: Dishon and Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah. Bereshit 36:25


+ 137 And these are the sons of Dishan: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran. Bereshit 36:26


+ 143 These are the sons of Ezer: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan. Bereshit 36:27


+ 139 These are the sons of Dishan: Uz and Aran. Bereshit 36:28


+ 141 These are the chieftains of the Horites: Chief Lotan, Chief Shobal, Chief Zibeon, Chief Anah, Bereshit 36:29


+ 155 Bela, son of Beor reigned in Edom, and the name of his city was Dinhabah. Bereshit 36:32


+ 137 Chief Kenaz, Chief Teman, Chief Mibzar, Bereshit 36:42


+ 208 These are the generations of Jacob: when Joseph was seventeen years old, being a shepherd, he was with his brothers with the flocks, and he was a lad, and was with the sons of Bilhah and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives; and Joseph brought evil tales about them to their father. Bereshit 37:2


+ 152 And his brothers went to pasture their father's flocks in Shechem. Bereshit 37:12


+ 159 So now, let us kill him, and we will cast him into one of the pits, and we will say, A wild beast devoured him, and we will see what will become of his dreams. Bereshit 37:20


+ 162 But Reuben heard, and he saved him from their hands, and he said, Let us not deal him a deadly blow. Bereshit 37:21


+ 178 And Reuben said to them, Do not shed blood! Cast him into this pit, which is in the desert, but do not lay a hand upon him, in order to save him from their hands, to return him to his father. Bereshit 37:22


+ 169 Now it came to pass when Joseph came to his brothers, that they stripped Joseph of his shirt, of the fine woolen coat which was upon him. Bereshit 37:23


+ 148 And they took him and cast him into the pit; now the pit was empty there was no water in it. Bereshit 37:24


+ 187 And they sat down to eat a meal, and they lifted their eyes and saw, and behold, a caravan of Ishmaelites was coming from Gilead, and their camels were carrying spices, balm, and lotus, going to take it down to Egypt. Bereshit 37:25


+ 143 And Judah said to his brothers, What is the gain if we slay our brother and cover up his blood? Bereshit 37:26


+ 178 Come, let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, but our hand shall not be upon him, for he is our brother, our flesh. And his brothers hearkened. Bereshit 37:27


+ 196 Then Midianite men, merchants, passed by, and they pulled and lifted Joseph from the pit, and they sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty silver pieces, and they brought Joseph to Egypt. Bereshit 37:28


+ 148 And Reuben returned to the pit, and behold, Joseph was not in the pit; so he rent his garments. Bereshit 37:29


+ 167 And they sent the fine woolen coat, and they brought it to their father, and they said, "We have found this; now recognize whether it is your son's coat or not." Bereshit 37:32


+ 146 And there Judah saw the daughter of a merchant named Shua, and he took her and came to her. Bereshit 38:2


+ 188 Many days passed, and Shua's daughter, Judah's wife, died; and Judah was consoled, and he went up to watch over his sheepshearers he and Hirah, his Adullamite friend to Timnah. Bereshit 38:12


+ 168 And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his Adullamite friend to take the pledge from the woman's hand, but he did not find her. Bereshit 38:20


+ 203 So he asked the people of the place, saying, Where is the harlot who was at the crossroads on the way? and they said, No harlot was here. Bereshit 38:21


+ 180 So he returned to Judah, and he said, I have not found her, and the people of the place also said, No harlot was here. Bereshit 38:22


+ 170 So Judah said, Let her take them for herself, lest we become a laughingstock. Behold, I sent this kid, but you did not find her. Bereshit 38:23


+ 203 Now it came about after nearly three months, that it was told to Judah, saying, Your daughter in law Tamar has played the harlot, and behold, she is pregnant from harlotry. So Judah said, Bring her out, and let her be burned. Bereshit 38:24


+ 184 She was taken out, and she sent to her father in law, saying, From the man to whom these belong I am pregnant, and she said, Please recognize whose signet ring, cloak, and staff are these? Bereshit 38:25


+ 198 Then Judah recognized them, and he said, She is right, it is from me, because I did not give her to my son Shelah. But he no longer continued to be intimate with her. Bereshit 38:26


+ 163 And it came about at the time she was giving birth, that behold, there were twins in her womb. Bereshit 38:27


+ 213 And it came about when she gave birth, that he (the infant) stretched out his hand. So the midwife took and bound a crimson thread on his hand, saying, This one came out first. Bereshit 38:28


+ 181 And it came about, as he was drawing back his hand, behold, his brother emerged, and she said, With what strength you have strengthened yourself! And he named him Perez. Bereshit 38:29


+ 160 The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master. Bereshit 39:2


+ 157 So she grabbed him by his garment, saying, Lie with me! But he left his garment in her hand and fled and went outside. Bereshit 39:12


+ 160 So Joseph's master took him and put him into prison, the place where the king's prisoners were imprisoned, and he was there in the prison. Bereshit 39:20


+ 167 The Lord was with Joseph, and He extended charisma to him, and He gave him favor in the eyes of the warden of the prison. Bereshit 39:21


+ 200 So the warden of the prison delivered all the prisoners who were in the prison into Joseph's hand, and whatever they did there, he was the one who did it. Bereshit 39:22


+ 159 The warden of the prison did not inspect anything that was in his (Joseph's) hand, for the Lord was with him, and whatever he did the Lord made prosper. Bereshit 39:23


+ 175 And Pharaoh became incensed at his two chamberlains, at the chief cupbearer and at the chief baker. Bereshit 40:2


+ 148 And Joseph said to him, This is its meaning: the three tendrils are three days. Bereshit 40:12


+ 177 Now it came about on the third day, Pharaoh's birthday, that Pharaoh made a feast for all his servants, and he counted the chief cupbearer and chief baker among his servants. Bereshit 40:20


+ 172 And he restored the chief cupbearer to his position as cupbearer, and he placed the cup on Pharaoh's palm. Bereshit 40:21


+ 149 And the chief baker he hanged, as Joseph had interpreted to them. Bereshit 40:22


+ 159 But the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, and he forgot him. Bereshit 40:23


+ 170 And behold, from the Nile were coming up seven cows, of handsome appearance and robust flesh, and they pastured in the marshland. Bereshit 41:2


+ 132 And there with us was a Hebrew lad, a slave of the chief slaughterer, and we told him, and he interpreted our dreams for us; for each of us, he interpreted according to his dream. Bereshit 41:12


+ 164 And the meager and ugly cows devoured the first seven healthy cows. Bereshit 41:20


+ 157 And they went inside them, but it was not known that they had gone inside of them, for their appearance was as ugly as in the beginning; then I awoke. Bereshit 41:21


+ 164 Then I saw in my dream, and behold, seven ears of grain were growing on one stalk, full and good. Bereshit 41:22


+ 154 And behold, seven ears of grain, hardened, thin, and beaten by the east wind, were growing up after them. Bereshit 41:23


+ 192 And the thin ears of grain swallowed up the seven good ears of grain; I told the necromancers, but no one tells me its meaning." Bereshit 41:24


+ 158 And Joseph said to Pharaoh, "Pharaoh's dream is one; what God is doing He has told Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:25


+ 151 The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good ears of grain are seven years; it is one dream. Bereshit 41:26


+ 170 And the seven meager and ugly cows coming up after them are seven years, and the seven empty ears of grain, beaten by the east wind, will be seven years of famine. Bereshit 41:27


+ 148 It is this matter that I have spoken to Pharaoh; what God is about to do He has shown Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:28


+ 139 Behold, seven years are coming, great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:29


+ 163 And concerning the repetition of the dream to Pharaoh twice that is because the matter is ready to emanate from God, and God is hastening to execute it. Bereshit 41:32


+ 181 And Pharaoh removed his ring from his hand and placed it on Joseph's hand, and he attired him with raiment of fine linen, and he placed the golden chain around his neck. Bereshit 41:42


+ 155 And the second one he named Ephraim, for "God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction." Bereshit 41:52


+ 175 Jacob saw that there was grain being sold in Egypt; so Jacob said to his sons, "Why do you appear satiated?" Bereshit 42:1


+ 166 And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is grain being sold in Egypt. Go down there and buy us some from there, so that we will live and not die. Bereshit 42:2


+ 144 So Joseph's ten brothers went down to buy grain from Egypt. Bereshit 42:3


+ 205 But Joseph's brother, Benjamin, Jacob did not send with his brothers, because, he said, Lest misfortune befall him. Bereshit 42:4


+ 168 So the sons of Israel came to purchase among those who came, for the famine was in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 42:5


+ 161 Now Joseph was the ruler over the land; it was he who sold grain to the entire populace of the land, and Joseph's brothers came and prostrated themselves to him, with their faces to the ground. Bereshit 42:6


+ 170 And Joseph saw his brothers, and he recognized them, but he made himself a stranger to them, and he spoke to them harshly, and he said to them, "Where do you come from?" And they said, "From the land of Canaan to purchase food." Bereshit 42:7


+ 137 Now Joseph recognized his brothers, but they did not recognize him. Bereshit 42:8


+ 152 And Joseph remembered the dreams that he had dreamed about them, and he said to them, "You are spies; you have come to see the nakedness of the land." Bereshit 42:9


+ 160 And they said to him, No, my master, your servants have come to buy food. Bereshit 42:10


+ 149 We are all sons of one man. We are honest. Your servants were never spies. Bereshit 42:11


+ 144 But he said to them, No! But you have come to see the nakedness of the land. Bereshit 42:12


+ 171 And they said, "We, your servants, are twelve brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan, and behold, the youngest is with our father today, and one is gone." Bereshit 42:13


+ 154 And Joseph said to them, This is just what I have spoken to you, saying, You are spies. Bereshit 42:14


+ 178 With this you shall be tested: By Pharaoh's life, you shall not leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here. Bereshit 42:15


+ 157 Send one of you and let him fetch your brother, and you will be imprisoned so that your words will be tested whether truth is with you, and if not, as Pharaoh lives, you are spies!" Bereshit 42:16


+ 123 And he put them in prison for three days. Bereshit 42:17


+ 144 On the third day, Joseph said to them: "Do this and live I fear God. Bereshit 42:18


+ 154 If you are honest, your one brother will be confined in your prison, and you, go bring the grain for the hunger of your households. Bereshit 42:19


+ 148 And bring your youngest brother to me, so that your words may be verified, and you will not die." And they did so. Bereshit 42:20


+ 188 And they said to one another, "Indeed, we are guilty for our brother, that we witnessed the distress of his soul when he begged us, and we did not listen. That is why this trouble has come upon us." Bereshit 42:21


+ 159 And Reuben answered them, saying, Did not I tell you, saying, Do not sin against the lad, but you did not listen? Behold, his blood, too, is being demanded! Bereshit 42:22


+ 147 They did not know that Joseph understood, for the interpreter was between them. Bereshit 42:23


+ 159 And he turned away from them and wept, then returned to them and spoke to them; and he took Simeon from among them and imprisoned him before their eyes. Bereshit 42:24


+ 149 And Joseph commanded, and they filled their vessels with grain, and he commanded to return their money into each one's sack, and to give them provisions for the journey, and he did so for them. Bereshit 42:25


+ 156 And they loaded their grain upon their donkeys, and they went away from there. Bereshit 42:26


+ 164 The one opened his sack to give fodder to his donkey at the lodging place, and he saw his money there it was, in the mouth of his sack. Bereshit 42:27


+ 186 And he said to his brothers, My money has been returned, and indeed, here it is in my sack! Their hearts sank, and trembling, they turned to one another, saying, What is this that God has done to us? Bereshit 42:28


+ 183 And they came to Jacob their father, to the land of Canaan, and they told him all that had befallen them, saying, Bereshit 42:29


+ 126 The man, the lord of the land, spoke to us harshly, and he accused us of spying on the land. Bereshit 42:30


+ 133 And we said to him, We are honest; we were never spies. Bereshit 42:31


+ 150 We are twelve brothers, the sons of our father; one is gone, and today the youngest is with our father in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 42:32


+ 175 And the man, the lord of the land, said to us, With this I will know that you are honest; leave one of your brothers with me, and what is needed for the hunger of your households, take and go. Bereshit 42:33


+ 163 And bring your youngest brother to me, so that I will know that you are not spies, that you are honest; then I will give you your brother, and you may travel around in the land. Bereshit 42:34


+ 149 And it came to pass that they were emptying their sacks and behold! Each one's bundle of money was in his sack; they saw the bundles of their money, they and their father, and they became frightened. Bereshit 42:35


+ 193 And their father Jacob said to them, You have bereaved me-Joseph is gone, and Simeon is gone, and you want to take Benjamin! All these troubles have come upon me. Bereshit 42:36


+ 170 And Reuben spoke to his father, saying, You may put my two sons to death if I don't bring him to you. Put him into my hands and I will return him to you. Bereshit 42:37


+ 195 But he Jacob said, My son shall not go down with you, because his brother is dead, and he alone is left, and if misfortune befalls him on the way you are going, you will bring down my gray head in sorrow to the grave. Bereshit 42:38


+ 150 And it came to pass, when they finished eating the grain that they had brought from Egypt, that their father said to them, "Go back and buy us a little food." Bereshit 43:2


+ 167 And take double the money in your hands, and the money that was returned in the mouth of your sacks you shall return in your hands, perhaps it was an error. Bereshit 43:12


+ 142 And they said, Please, my lord, we came down at first to purchase food. Bereshit 43:20


+ 157 And it came to pass when we came to the lodging place that we opened our sacks, and behold! each man's money was in the mouth of his sack, and we returned it in our hands. Bereshit 43:21


+ 132 And we brought down other money in our hands to purchase food. We do not know who put our money into our sacks. Bereshit 43:22


+ 157 And he said, Peace to you; fear not. Your God and the God of your father gave you a treasure in your sacks; your money came to me. And he brought Simeon out to them. Bereshit 43:23


+ 180 Then the man brought the men (the brothers) into Joseph's house, and he gave them water, and they washed their feet, and he gave fodder to their donkeys. Bereshit 43:24


+ 147 And they prepared the gift until Joseph would come at lunchtime, for they heard that there they would eat bread. Bereshit 43:25


+ 145 And Joseph came home, and they brought him the gift that was in their hands, into the house, and they prostrated themselves to him to the ground. Bereshit 43:26


+ 156 He inquired after their welfare, and he said to them, Is your elderly father, whom you mentioned, well? Is he still alive? Bereshit 43:27


+ 155 And they said, Your servant, our father, is well; he is still alive. And they bowed and prostrated themselves. Bereshit 43:28


+ 174 And he lifted his eyes and saw Benjamin, his brother, the son of his mother, and he said, Is this your little brother, whom you told me about? And he said, May God favor you, my son. Bereshit 43:29


+ 154 And they set for him separately and for them separately, and for the Egyptians who ate with him separately, because the Egyptians could not eat food with the Hebrews, because it is an abomination to the Egyptians. Bereshit 43:32


+ 155 And my goblet, the silver goblet, put into the mouth of the sack of the youngest, and his purchase money." And he did according to Joseph's word, which he had spoken. Bereshit 44:2


+ 169 He searched; he started with the eldest and finished with the youngest, and the goblet was found in Benjamin's sack. Bereshit 44:12


+ 301 And we said to my lord, 'We have an old father and a young child of his old age, and his brother is dead, and he is left alone of his mother, and his father loves him.' Bereshit 44:20


+ 167 And you said to your servants, Bring him down to me, and I will set my eyes upon him. Bereshit 44:21


+ 180 And we said to my lord, The boy cannot leave his father, for if he leaves his father, he will die. Bereshit 44:22


+ 175 And you said to your servants, If your youngest brother does not come down with you, you will not see my face again. Bereshit 44:23


+ 163 And it came to pass when we went up to your servant, my father, and we told him the words of my lord, Bereshit 44:24


+ 139 That our father said, Go back, buy us a little food. Bereshit 44:25


+ 173 But we said, 'We cannot go down; only if our youngest brother is with us will we go down, for we cannot see the man's face if our youngest brother is not with us.' Bereshit 44:26


+ 154 And your servant, my father, said to us, 'You know that my wife bore me two children. Bereshit 44:27


+ 163 The one went away from me, and I said, "He has surely been torn to pieces, and I have not seen him since." Bereshit 44:28


+ 179 Now if you take this one too away from me, and misfortune befalls him, you will bring down my hoary head in misery to the grave.' Bereshit 44:29


+ 157 For your servant assumed responsibility for the boy from my father, saying, 'If I do not bring him to you, I will have sinned against my father forever.' Bereshit 44:32


+ 138 And he wept out loud, so the Egyptians heard, and the house of Pharaoh heard. Bereshit 45:2


+ 164 And behold, your eyes see, as well as the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth speaking to you. Bereshit 45:12


+ 151 And let your eye not be concerned about your utensils, for the best of all the land of Egypt is yours. Bereshit 45:20


+ 185 And the sons of Israel did so, and Joseph gave them wagons by Pharaoh's orders, and he gave them provisions for the way. Bereshit 45:21


+ 139 He gave them all, to each one several changes of clothes, and to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver and five changes of clothes. Bereshit 45:22


+ 165 And to his father he sent the following: ten he donkeys carrying of the best of Egypt, and ten she donkeys carrying grain, bread, and other food, for his father for the way. Bereshit 45:23


+ 167 And he sent off his brothers, and they went, and he said to them, Do not quarrel on the way. Bereshit 45:24


+ 158 So they went up from Egypt, and they came to the land of Canaan, to their father, Jacob. Bereshit 45:25


+ 166 And they told him, saying, Joseph is still alive, and they told him that he ruled over the entire land of Egypt, and his heart changed, for he did not believe them. Bereshit 45:26


+ 180 And they told him all of Joseph's words that he had said to them, and he saw the wagons that Joseph had sent to carry him, and the spirit of their father Jacob was revived. Bereshit 45:27


+ 167 And Israel said, Enough! My son Joseph is still alive. I will go and see him before I die. Bereshit 45:28


+ 165 And God said to Israel in visions of the night, and He said, "Jacob, Jacob!" And he said, "Here I am." Bereshit 46:2


+ 173 And the sons of Judah were Er, Onan, Shelah, Perez, and Zerah. Now Er and Onan had died in the land of Canaan; and the sons of Perez were Hezron and Hamul. Bereshit 46:12


+ 160 And to Joseph were born in the land of Egypt, whom Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera, the governor of On, bore to him: Manasseh and Ephraim. Bereshit 46:20


+ 155 And the sons of Benjamin were Bela, Becher, Ashbel, Gera, Na'aman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, Huppim, and Ard. Bereshit 46:21


+ 144 These the sons of Rachel, who were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen. Bereshit 46:22


+ 124 And the sons of Dan: Hushim. Bereshit 46:23


+ 156 And the sons of Naphtali were Jahzeel, Guni, Jezer, and Shillem. Bereshit 46:24


+ 200 These are the sons of Bilhah, whom Laban had given to his daughter Rachel, and she bore these to Jacob, all the souls were seven. Bereshit 46:25


+ 180 All the souls coming to Egypt with Jacob, those descended from him, excluding the wives of Jacob's sons, all the souls were sixty six. Bereshit 46:26


+ 169 And Joseph's sons, who were born to him in Egypt, two souls; all the souls of the house of Jacob who came to Egypt were seventy. Bereshit 46:27


+ 222 He sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph, to direct him to Goshen, and they came to the land of Goshen. Bereshit 46:28


+ 153 And Joseph harnessed his chariot, and he went up to meet Israel his father, to Goshen, and he appeared to him, and he fell on his neck, and he wept on his neck for a long time. Bereshit 46:29


+ 177 The men are shepherds, for they were always owners of livestock, and their flocks and their cattle and all they have they have brought. Bereshit 46:32


+ 147 And from among his brothers he took five men, and he presented them before Pharaoh. Bereshit 47:2


+ 156 And Joseph sustained his father and his brothers and his father's entire household with bread according to the young children. Bereshit 47:12


+ 156 So Joseph bought all the farmland of the Egyptians for Pharaoh, for the Egyptians sold, each one his field, for the famine had become too strong for them, and the land became Pharaoh's. Bereshit 47:20


+ 126 And he transferred the populace to the cities, from one end of the boundary of Egypt to its other end. Bereshit 47:21


+ 161 Only the farmland of the priests he did not buy, for the priests had an allotment from Pharaoh, and they ate their allotment that Pharaoh had given them; therefore, they did not sell their farmland. Bereshit 47:22


+ 161 Joseph said to the people, Behold, I have bought you and your farmland today for Pharaoh. Behold, you have seed, so sow the soil. Bereshit 47:23


+ 183 And it shall be concerning the crops, that you shall give a fifth to Pharaoh, and the remaining four parts shall be yours: for seed for your fields, for your food, for those in your houses, and for your young children to eat." Bereshit 47:24


+ 163 They replied, You have saved our lives! Let us find favor in my lord's eyes, and we will be slaves to Pharaoh. Bereshit 47:25


+ 186 So Joseph made it a statute to this day concerning the farmland of Egypt for the one fifth. Only the farmland of the priests alone did not become Pharaoh's. Bereshit 47:26


+ 186 And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt in the land of Goshen, and they acquired property in it, and they were prolific and multiplied greatly. Bereshit 47:27


+ 203 And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt for seventeen years, and Jacob's days, the years of his life, were a hundred and forty seven years. Bereshit 47:28


+ 195 When the time drew near for Israel to die, he called his son Joseph and said to him, "If I have now found favor in your eyes, now place your hand beneath my thigh, and you shall deal with me with lovingkindness and truth; do not bury me now in Egypt. Bereshit 47:29


+ 168 And someone told Jacob and said, Behold, your son Joseph is coming to you. And Israel summoned his strength and sat up on the bed. Bereshit 48:2


+ 170 And Joseph took them out from upon his Jacob's knees, and he prostrated himself to the ground. Bereshit 48:12


+ 153 So he blessed them on that day, saying, With you, Israel will bless, saying, May God make you like Ephraim and like Manasseh, and he placed Ephraim before Manasseh. Bereshit 48:20


+ 198 And Israel said to Joseph, Behold, I am going to die, and God will be with you, and He will return you to the land of your forefathers. Bereshit 48:21


+ 148 And I have given you one portion over your brothers, which I took from the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow. Bereshit 48:22


+ 169 Gather and listen, sons of Jacob, and listen to Israel, your father. Bereshit 49:2


+ 129 He is red eyed from wine and white toothed from milk. Bereshit 49:12


+ 138 From Asher will come rich food, and he will yield regal delicacies. Bereshit 49:20


+ 149 Naphtali is a swift gazelle; he is one who utters beautiful words. Bereshit 49:21


+ 125 A charming son is Joseph, a son charming to the eye; of the women, each one strode along to see him. Bereshit 49:22


+ 135 They heaped bitterness upon him and became quarrelsome; yea, archers despised him. Bereshit 49:23


+ 189 But his bow was strongly established, and his arms were gilded from the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob; from there he sustained the rock of Israel, Bereshit 49:24


+ 186 From the God of your father, and He will help you, and with the Almighty, and He will bless you with the blessings of the heavens above, the blessings of the deep, lying below, the blessings of father and mother. Bereshit 49:25


+ 214 The blessings of your father surpassed the blessings of my parents, the ends of the everlasting hills. May they come to Joseph's head and to the crown of the head of the one who was separated from his brothers. Bereshit 49:26


+ 154 Benjamin is a wolf, he will prey; in the morning he will devour plunder, and in the evening he will divide the spoil. Bereshit 49:27


+ 152 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them and blessed them; each man, according to his blessing, he blessed them. Bereshit 49:28


+ 163 And he commanded them and said to them, I will be brought in to my people; bury me with my fathers, in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite, Bereshit 49:29


+ 153 The purchase of the field and the cave therein was from the sons of Heth. Bereshit 49:32


+ 164 And Joseph commanded his servants, the physicians, to embalm his father, and the physicians embalmed Israel. Bereshit 50:2


+ 129 And his sons did to him just as he had commanded them. Bereshit 50:12


+ 175 Indeed, you intended evil against me, but God designed it for good, in order to bring about what is at present to keep a great populace alive. Bereshit 50:20


+ 152 So now do not fear. I will sustain you and your small children. And he comforted them and spoke to their hearts. Bereshit 50:21


+ 154 So Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he and his father's household, and Joseph lived a hundred and ten years. Bereshit 50:22


+ 167 Joseph saw children of a third generation born to Ephraim; also the sons of Machir the son of Manasseh were born on Joseph's knees. Bereshit 50:23


+ 227 Joseph said to his brothers, I am going to die; God will surely remember you and take you up out of this land to the land that He swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. Bereshit 50:24


+ 194 And Joseph adjured the children of Israel, saying, God will surely remember you, and you shall take up my bones out of here. Bereshit 50:25


+ 202 And Joseph died at the age of one hundred ten years, and they embalmed him and he was placed into the coffin in Egypt. Bereshit 50:26


+ 171 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah. Shemot 1:2


+ 208 But as much as they would afflict them, so did they multiply and so did they gain strength, and they were disgusted because of the children of Israel. Shemot 1:12


+ 168 God benefited the midwives, and the people multiplied and became very strong. Shemot 1:20


+ 160 Now it took place when the midwives feared God, that He made houses for them. Shemot 1:21


+ 179 And Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, Every son who is born you shall cast into the Nile, and every daughter you shall allow to live. Shemot 1:22


+ 163 A man of the house of Levi went and married a daughter of Levi. Shemot 2:1


+ 155 The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw him that he was good, she hid him for three months. Shemot 2:2


+ 188 When she could no longer hide him, she took for him a reed basket, smeared it with clay and pitch, placed the child into it, and put it into the marsh at the Nile's edge. Shemot 2:3


+ 152 His sister stood from afar, to know what would be done to him. Shemot 2:4


+ 189 Pharaoh's daughter went down to bathe, to the Nile, and her maidens were walking along the Nile, and she saw the basket in the midst of the marsh, and she sent her maidservant, and she took it. Shemot 2:5


+ 181 She opened it, and she saw him the child, and behold, he was a weeping lad, and she had compassion on him, and she said, This is one of the children of the Hebrews. Shemot 2:6


+ 166 His sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call for you a wet nurse from the Hebrew women, so that she shall nurse the child for you? Shemot 2:7


+ 171 Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go! So the girl went and called the child's mother. Shemot 2:8


+ 179 Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Take this child and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages. So the woman took the child and nursed him. Shemot 2:9


+ 172 The child grew up, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became like her son. She named him Moses, and she said, For I drew him from the water. Shemot 2:10


+ 208 Now it came to pass in those days that Moses grew up and went out to his brothers and looked at their burdens, and he saw an Egyptian man striking a Hebrew man of his brothers. Shemot 2:11


+ 167 He turned this way and that way, and he saw that there was no man; so he struck the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. Shemot 2:12


+ 174 He went out on the second day, and behold, two Hebrew men were quarreling, and he said to the wicked one, Why are you going to strike your friend? Shemot 2:13


+ 194 And he retorted, Who made you a man, a prince, and a judge over us? Do you plan to slay me as you have slain the Egyptian? Moses became frightened and said, Indeed, the matter has become known! Shemot 2:14


+ 191 Pharaoh heard of this incident, and he sought to slay Moses; so Moses fled from before Pharaoh. He stayed in the land of Midian, and he sat down by a well. Shemot 2:15


+ 141 Now the chief of Midian had seven daughters, and they came and drew water, and they filled the troughs to water their father's flocks. Shemot 2:16


+ 169 But the shepherds came and drove them away; so Moses arose and rescued them and watered their flocks. Shemot 2:17


+ 150 They came to their father Reuel, and he said, Why have you come so quickly today? Shemot 2:18


+ 166 They replied, An Egyptian man rescued us from the hands of the shepherds, and he also drew water for us and watered the flocks. Shemot 2:19


+ 159 He said to his daughters, So where is he? Why have you left the man? Invite him, and let him eat bread. Shemot 2:20


+ 163 Moses consented to stay with the man, and he gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses. Shemot 2:21


+ 207 She bore a son, and he named him Gershom, for he said, I was a stranger in a foreign land. Shemot 2:22


+ 200 Now it came to pass in those many days that the king of Egypt died, and the children of Israel sighed from the labor, and they cried out, and their cry ascended to God from the labor. Shemot 2:23


+ 183 God heard their cry, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. Shemot 2:24


+ 154 And God saw the children of Israel, and God knew. Shemot 2:25


+ 149 An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from within the thorn bush, and behold, the thorn bush was burning with fire, but the thorn bush was not being consumed. Shemot 3:2


+ 150 And He said, For I will be with you, and this is the sign for you that it was I Who sent you. When you take the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain. Shemot 3:12


+ 158 And I will stretch forth My hand and smite the Egyptians with all My miracles that I will wreak in their midst, and afterwards he will send you out. Shemot 3:20


+ 132 And I will put this people's favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and it will come to pass that when you go, you will not go empty handed. Shemot 3:21


+ 162 Each woman shall borrow from her neighbor and from the dweller in her house silver and gold objects and garments, and you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters, and you shall empty out Egypt. Shemot 3:22


+ 127 And the Lord said to him, What is this in your hand? And he said, A staff. Shemot 4:2


+ 149 So now, go! I will be with your mouth, and I will instruct you what you shall speak. Shemot 4:12


+ 153 So Moses took his wife and his sons, mounted them upon the donkey, and he returned to the land of Egypt, and Moses took the staff of God in his hand. Shemot 4:20


+ 182 The Lord said to Moses, When you go to return to Egypt, see all the signs that I have placed in your hand and perform them before Pharaoh, but I will strengthen his heart, and he will not send out the people. Shemot 4:21


+ 144 And you shall say to Pharaoh, So said the Lord, My firstborn son is Israel. Shemot 4:22


+ 153 So I say to you, Send out My son so that he will worship Me, but if you refuse to send him out, behold, I am going to slay your firstborn son. Shemot 4:23


+ 142 Now he was on the way, in an inn, that the Lord met him and sought to put him to death. Shemot 4:24


+ 150 So Zipporah took a sharp stone and severed her son's foreskin and cast it to his feet, and she said, For you are a bridegroom of blood to me. Shemot 4:25


+ 148 So He released him. Then she said, A bridegroom of blood concerning the circumcision. Shemot 4:26


+ 147 The Lord said to Aaron, Go toward Moses, to the desert. So he went and met him on the mount of God, and he kissed him. Shemot 4:27


+ 157 And Moses told Aaron all the words of the Lord with which he had sent him and all the signs that He had commanded him. Shemot 4:28


+ 152 So Moses and Aaron went, and they assembled all the elders of the children of Israel. Shemot 4:29


+ 141 And Pharaoh said, Who is the Lord that I should heed His voice to let Israel out? I do not know the Lord, neither will I let Israel out. Shemot 5:2


+ 128 So the people scattered throughout the entire land of Egypt, to gather a gleaning for stubble. Shemot 5:12


+ 141 They met Moses and Aaron standing before them when they came out from Pharaoh's presence. Shemot 5:20


+ 178 And they said to them, May the Lord look upon you and judge, for you have brought us into foul odor in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his servants, to place a sword into their hands to kill us. Shemot 5:21


+ 146 So Moses returned to the Lord and said, O Lord! Why have You harmed this people? Why have You sent me? Shemot 5:22


+ 155 Since I have come to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has harmed this people, and You have not saved Your people. Shemot 5:23


+ 133 God spoke to Moses, and He said to him, I am the Lord. Shemot 6:2


+ 180 But Moses spoke before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of Israel did not hearken to me. How then will Pharaoh hearken to me, seeing that I am of closed lips? Shemot 6:12


+ 157 Amram took Jochebed, his aunt, as his wife, and she bore him Aaron and Moses, and the years of Amram's life were one hundred thirty seven years. Shemot 6:20


+ 139 And the sons of Izhar were Korah and Nepheg and Zichri. Shemot 6:21


+ 179 And the sons of Uzziel were Mishael, Elzaphan, and Sithri. Shemot 6:22


+ 151 Aaron took to himself for a wife, Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, and she bore him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. Shemot 6:23


+ 147 And the sons of Korah were Assir, Elkanah and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korahites. Shemot 6:24


+ 184 Eleazar, the son of Aaron, took himself one of the daughters of Putiel to himself as a wife, and she bore him Phinehas; these are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites according to their families. Shemot 6:25


+ 149 That is Aaron and Moses, to whom the Lord said, Take the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt with their legions. Shemot 6:26


+ 153 They are the ones who spoke to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to let the children of Israel out of Egypt; they are Moses and Aaron. Shemot 6:27


+ 121 Now it came to pass on the day that the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, Shemot 6:28


+ 129 That the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, I am the Lord. Speak to Pharaoh everything that I speak to you. Shemot 6:29


+ 152 You shall speak all that I command you, and Aaron, your brother, shall speak to Pharaoh, that he let the children of Israel out of his land. Shemot 7:2


+ 147 Each one of them cast down his staff, and they became serpents; but Aaron's staff swallowed their staffs. Shemot 7:12


+ 170 Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord had commanded, and he raised the staff and struck the water that was in the Nile before the eyes of Pharaoh and before the eyes of his servants, and all the water that was in the Nile turned to blood. Shemot 7:20


+ 150 And the fish that were in the Nile died, and the Nile became putrid; the Egyptians could not drink water from the Nile, and there was blood throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 7:21


+ 146 And the necromancers of Egypt did likewise with their secret rites, and Pharaoh's heart was steadfast, and he did not heed them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 7:22


+ 138 Pharaoh turned and went home, and he paid no heed even to this. Shemot 7:23


+ 151 All the Egyptians dug around the Nile for water to drink because they could not drink from the water of the Nile. Shemot 7:24


+ 146 Seven full days passed after the Lord had smitten the Nile. Shemot 7:25


+ 155 The Lord said to Moses, Come to Pharaoh and say to him, So said the Lord, Let My people go, so that they may serve Me. Shemot 7:26


+ 132 But if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all your borders with frogs. Shemot 7:27


+ 170 And the Nile will swarm with frogs, and they will go up and come into your house and into your bedroom and upon your bed and into the house of your servants and into your people, and into your ovens and into your kneading troughs; Shemot 7:28


+ 145 And into you and into your people and into all your servants, the frogs will ascend. Shemot 7:29


+ 128 And Aaron stretched forth his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt. Shemot 8:2


+ 157 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch forth your staff and strike the dust of the earth, and it shall become lice throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 8:12


+ 160 The Lord did so, and a heavy mixture of noxious creatures came to Pharaoh's house and his servants' house, and throughout the entire land of Egypt, the land was destroyed because of the mixture of noxious creatures. Shemot 8:20


+ 178 Thereupon, Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron, and he said, "Go, sacrifice to your God in the land." Shemot 8:21


+ 175 But Moses said, It is improper to do that, for we will sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to God our Lord. Will we sacrifice the deity of the Egyptians before their eyes, and they will not stone us? Shemot 8:22


+ 157 Let us go for a three day journey in the desert and sacrifice to the Lord, our God, as He will say to us." Shemot 8:23


+ 170 Pharaoh said, I will let you go out, and you will sacrifice to the Lord, your God, in the desert, but do not go far away; entreat Him on my behalf. Shemot 8:24


+ 204 Moses said, Behold, I am going away from you, and I will entreat the Lord, and the mixture of noxious creatures will depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people tomorrow. Only let Pharaoh not tease anymore, by not letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 8:25


+ 170 So Moses went away from Pharaoh and entreated the Lord. Shemot 8:26


+ 179 And the Lord did according to Moses' word, and He removed the mixture of noxious creatures from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; not one was left. Shemot 8:27


+ 157 But Pharaoh hardened his heart this time also, and he did not let the people go. Shemot 8:28


+ 158 For if you refuse to let them go, and you still hold on to them, Shemot 9:2


+ 153 But the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord spoke to Moses. Shemot 9:12


+ 149 He who feared the word of the Lord of Pharaoh's servants drove his servants and his livestock into the houses. Shemot 9:20


+ 144 But he who did not pay attention to the word of the Lord left his servants and his livestock in the field. Shemot 9:21


+ 177 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand heavenward, and hail will be upon the entire land of Egypt, upon man and upon beast and upon all the vegetation of the field in the land of Egypt. Shemot 9:22


+ 153 So Moses stretched forth his staff heavenward, and the Lord gave forth thunder and hail, and fire came down to the earth, and the Lord rained down hail upon the land of Egypt. Shemot 9:23


+ 162 And there was hail, and fire flaming within the hail, very heavy, the likes of which had never been throughout the entire land of Egypt since it had become a nation. Shemot 9:24


+ 146 The hail struck throughout the entire land of Egypt, all that was in the field, both man and beast, and the hail struck all the vegetation of the field, and it broke all the trees of the field. Shemot 9:25


+ 148 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail. Shemot 9:26


+ 186 So Pharaoh sent and summoned Moses and Aaron and said to them, I have sinned this time. The Lord is the righteous One, and I and my people are the guilty ones. Shemot 9:27


+ 128 Entreat the Lord, and let it be enough of God's thunder and hail, and I will let you go, and you shall not continue to stand. Shemot 9:28


+ 170 And Moses said to him, When I leave the city, I will spread my hands to the Lord. The thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, in order that you know that the land is the Lord's. Shemot 9:29


+ 146 The wheat and the spelt, however, have not been broken because they ripen late. Shemot 9:32


+ 156 And in order that you tell into the ears of your son and your son's son how I made a mockery of the Egyptians, and that you tell of My signs that I placed in them, and you will know that I am the Lord. Shemot 10:2


+ 172 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, and they will ascend over the land of Egypt, and they will eat all the vegetation of the earth, all that the hail has left over. Shemot 10:12


+ 141 But the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go out. Shemot 10:20


+ 155 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand toward the heavens, and there will be darkness over the land of Egypt, and the darkness will become darker. Shemot 10:21


+ 155 So Moses stretched forth his hand toward the heavens, and there was thick darkness over the entire land of Egypt for three days. Shemot 10:22


+ 154 They did not see each other, and no one rose from his place for three days, but for all the children of Israel there was light in their dwellings. Shemot 10:23


+ 169 Pharaoh summoned Moses and said, Go! Worship the Lord, but your flocks and your cattle shall be left. Your young children may also go with you. Shemot 10:24


+ 188 But Moses said, You too shall give sacrifices and burnt offerings into our hands, and we will make them for the Lord our God. Shemot 10:25


+ 169 And also our cattle will go with us; not a single hoof will remain, for we will take from it to worship the Lord our God, and we do not know how much we will worship the Lord until we arrive there. Shemot 10:26


+ 141 The Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he was unwilling to let them out. Shemot 10:27


+ 151 Pharaoh said to him, Go away from me! Beware! You shall no longer see my face, for on the day that you see my face, you shall die! Shemot 10:28


+ 162 Thereupon, Moses said, You have spoken correctly; I shall no longer see your face. Shemot 10:29


+ 138 Please, speak into the ears of the people, and let them borrow, each man from his friend and each woman from her friend, silver vessels and golden vessels. Shemot 11:2


+ 121 The Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, Shemot 12:1


+ 120 This month shall be to you the head of the months; to you it shall be the first of the months of the year. Shemot 12:2


+ 154 Speak to the entire community of Israel, saying, On the tenth of this month, let each one take a lamb for each parental home, a lamb for each household. Shemot 12:3


+ 146 But if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his neighbor who is nearest to his house shall take one according to the number of people, each one according to one's ability to eat, shall you be counted for the lamb. Shemot 12:4


+ 135 You shall have a perfect male lamb in its first year; you may take it either from the sheep or from the goats. Shemot 12:5


+ 159 And you shall keep it for inspection until the fourteenth day of this month, and the entire congregation of the community of Israel shall slaughter it in the afternoon. Shemot 12:6


+ 139 And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel, on the houses in which they will eat it. Shemot 12:7


+ 135 And on this night, they shall eat the flesh, roasted over the fire, and unleavened cakes; with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Shemot 12:8


+ 145 You shall not eat it rare or boiled in water, except roasted over the fire its head with its legs and with its innards. Shemot 12:9


+ 126 And you shall not leave over any of it until morning, and whatever is left over of it until morning, you shall burn in fire. Shemot 12:10


+ 143 And this is how you shall eat it: your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste it is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 12:11


+ 150 I will pass through the land of Egypt on this night, and I will smite every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast, and upon all the gods of Egypt will I wreak judgments I, the Lord. Shemot 12:12


+ 143 And the blood will be for you for a sign upon the houses where you will be, and I will see the blood and skip over you, and there will be no plague to destroy you when I smite the people of the land of Egypt. Shemot 12:13


+ 126 And this day shall be for you as a memorial, and you shall celebrate it as a festival for the Lord; throughout your generations, you shall celebrate it as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:14


+ 168 For seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes, but on the preceding day you shall clear away all leaven from your houses, for whoever eats leaven from the first day until the seventh day that soul shall be cut off from Israel. Shemot 12:15


+ 144 And on the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation; no work may be performed on them, but what is eaten by any soul that alone may be performed for you. Shemot 12:16


+ 152 And you shall watch over the unleavened cakes, for on this very day I have taken your legions out of the land of Egypt, and you shall observe this day throughout your generations, as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:17


+ 138 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, you shall eat unleavened cakes, until the twenty first day of the month in the evening. Shemot 12:18


+ 171 For seven days, leavening shall not be found in your houses, for whoever eats leavening that soul shall be cut off from the community of Israel, both among the strangers and the native born of the land. Shemot 12:19


+ 146 You shall not eat any leavening; throughout all your dwellings you shall eat unleavened cakes." Shemot 12:20


+ 169 Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, Draw forth or buy for yourselves sheep for your families and slaughter the Passover sacrifice. Shemot 12:21


+ 153 And you shall take a bunch of hyssop and immerse it in the blood that is in the basin, and you shall extend to the lintel and to the two doorposts the blood that is in the basin, and you shall not go out, any man from the entrance of his house until morning. Shemot 12:22


+ 169 The Lord will pass to smite the Egyptians, and He will see the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, and the Lord will pass over the entrance, and He will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses to smite you. Shemot 12:23


+ 136 And you shall keep this matter as a statute for you and for your children forever. Shemot 12:24


+ 122 And it shall come to pass when you enter the land that the Lord will give you, as He spoke, that you shall observe this service. Shemot 12:25


+ 135 And it will come to pass if your children say to you, What is this service to you? Shemot 12:26


+ 172 You shall say, It is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord, for He passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, and He saved our houses. And the people kneeled and prostrated themselves. Shemot 12:27


+ 135 So the children of Israel went and did; as the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. Shemot 12:28


+ 146 It came to pass at midnight, and the Lord smote every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who is in the dungeon, and every firstborn animal. Shemot 12:29


+ 154 And Pharaoh arose at night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was a great outcry in Egypt, for there was no house in which no one was dead. Shemot 12:30


+ 171 So he called for Moses and Aaron at night, and he said, Get up and get out from among my people, both you, as well as the children of Israel, and go, worship the Lord as you have spoken. Shemot 12:31


+ 130 Take also your flocks and also your cattle, as you have spoken, and go, but you shall also bless me. Shemot 12:32


+ 156 So the Egyptians took hold of the people to hasten to send them out of the land, for they said, "We are all dead." Shemot 12:33


+ 159 The people picked up their dough when it was not yet leavened, their leftovers bound in their garments on their shoulders. Shemot 12:34


+ 177 And the children of Israel did according to Moses' order, and they borrowed from the Egyptians silver objects, golden objects, and garments. Shemot 12:35


+ 138 The Lord gave the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and they lent them, and they emptied out Egypt. Shemot 12:36


+ 157 The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot, the men, besides the young children. Shemot 12:37


+ 152 And also, a great mixed multitude went up with them, and flocks and cattle, very much livestock. Shemot 12:38


+ 144 They baked the dough that they had taken out of Egypt as unleavened cakes, for it had not leavened, for they were driven out of Egypt, and they could not tarry, and also, they had not made provisions for themselves. Shemot 12:39


+ 133 And the habitation of the children of Israel, that they dwelled in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. Shemot 12:40


+ 125 It came to pass at the end of four hundred and thirty years, and it came to pass in that very day, that all the legions of the Lord went out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 12:41


+ 142 It is a night of anticipation for the Lord, to take them out of the land of Egypt; this night is the Lord's, guarding all the children of Israel throughout their generations. Shemot 12:42


+ 163 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, This is the statute of the Passover sacrifice: No estranged one may partake of it. Shemot 12:43


+ 147 And every man's slave, purchased for his money you shall circumcise him; then he will be permitted to partake of it. Shemot 12:44


+ 132 A sojourner or a hired hand may not partake of it. Shemot 12:45


+ 141 It must be eaten in one house; you shall not take any of the meat out of the house to the outside, neither shall you break any of its bones. Shemot 12:46


+ 132 The entire community of Israel shall make it. Shemot 12:47


+ 185 And should a proselyte reside with you, he shall make a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. All his males shall be circumcised, and then he may approach to make it, and he will be like the native of the land, but no uncircumcised male may partake of it. Shemot 12:48


+ 124 There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who resides in your midst." Shemot 12:49


+ 148 All the children of Israel did; as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. Shemot 12:50


+ 118 It came to pass on that very day, that the Lord took the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt with their legions. Shemot 12:51


+ 151 Sanctify to Me every firstborn, every one that opens the womb among the children of Israel among man and among animals; it is Mine. Shemot 13:2


+ 165 That you shall give over to the Lord whatever opens the womb, and every miscarriage that opens the womb of an animal which will be yours, the males belong to the Lord. Shemot 13:12


+ 126 They traveled from Succoth, and they encamped in Etham, at the edge of the desert. Shemot 13:20


+ 113 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to cause it to lead them on the way and at night in a pillar of fire to give them light, they thus could travel day and night. Shemot 13:21


+ 133 He did not move away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire at night from before the people. Shemot 13:22


+ 151 Speak to the children of Israel, and let them turn back and encamp in front of Pi hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea; in front of Baal Zephon, you shall encamp opposite it, by the sea. Shemot 14:2


+ 128 Isn't this the thing about which we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, Leave us alone, and we will serve the Egyptians, because we would rather serve the Egyptians than die in the desert. Shemot 14:12


+ 151 And he came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel, and there were the cloud and the darkness, and it illuminated the night, and one did not draw near the other all night long. Shemot 14:20


+ 142 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord led the sea with the strong east wind all night, and He made the sea into dry land and the waters split. Shemot 14:21


+ 127 Then the children of Israel came into the midst of the sea on dry land, and the waters were to them as a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:22


+ 135 The Egyptians pursued and came after them all Pharaoh s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen, into the midst of the sea. Shemot 14:23


+ 151 It came about in the morning watch that the Lord looked down over the Egyptian camp through a pillar of fire and cloud, and He threw the Egyptian camp into confusion. Shemot 14:24


+ 162 And He removed the wheels of their chariots, and He led them with heaviness, and the Egyptians said, Let me run away from the Israelites because the Lord is fighting for them against the Egyptians. Shemot 14:25


+ 145 Thereupon, the Lord said to Moses, Stretch out your hand over the sea, and let the water return upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. Shemot 14:26


+ 165 So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and toward morning the sea returned to its strength, as the Egyptians were fleeing toward it, and the Lord stirred the Egyptians into the sea. Shemot 14:27


+ 156 And the waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen, the entire force of Pharaoh coming after them into the sea; not even one of them survived. Shemot 14:28


+ 138 But the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the water was to them like a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:29


+ 146 The Eternal's strength and His vengeance were my salvation; this is my God, and I will make Him a habitation, the God of my father, and I will ascribe to Him exaltation. Shemot 15:2


+ 142 You inclined Your right hand; the earth swallowed them up. Shemot 15:12


+ 127 Miriam, the prophetess, Aaron's sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women came out after her with timbrels and with dances. Shemot 15:20


+ 123 And Miriam called out to them, Sing to the Lord, for very exalted is He; a horse and its rider He cast into the sea. Shemot 15:21


+ 149 Moses led Israel away from the Red Sea, and they went out into the desert of Shur; they walked for three days in the desert but did not find water. Shemot 15:22


+ 151 They came to Marah, but they could not drink water from Marah because it was bitter; therefore, it was named Marah. Shemot 15:23


+ 133 The people complained against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? Shemot 15:24


+ 151 So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord instructed him concerning a piece of wood, which he cast into the water, and the water became sweet. There He gave them a statute and an ordinance, and there He tested them. Shemot 15:25


+ 187 And He said, If you hearken to the voice of the Lord, your God, and you do what is proper in His eyes, and you listen closely to His commandments and observe all His statutes, all the sicknesses that I have visited upon Egypt I will not visit upon you, for I, the Lord, heal you. Shemot 15:26


+ 136 They came to Elim, and there were twelve water fountains and seventy palms, and they encamped there by the water. Shemot 15:27


+ 141 The entire community of the children of Israel complained against Moses and against Aaron in the desert. Shemot 16:2


+ 170 I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, In the afternoon you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be sated with bread, and you shall know that I am the Lord, your God. Shemot 16:12


+ 136 But some men did not obey Moses and left over some of it until morning, and it bred worms and became putrid, and Moses became angry with them. Shemot 16:20


+ 109 They gathered it morning by morning, each one according to his eating capacity, and when the sun grew hot, it melted. Shemot 16:21


+ 156 It came to pass on the sixth day that they gathered a double portion of bread, two omers for each one, and all the princes of the community came and reported it to Moses. Shemot 16:22


+ 157 So he said to them, That is what the Lord spoke, Tomorrow is a rest day, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Bake whatever you wish to bake, and cook whatever you wish to cook, and all the rest leave over to keep until morning. Shemot 16:23


+ 140 So they left it over until morning, as Moses had commanded, and it did not become putrid, and not a worm was in it. Shemot 16:24


+ 134 And Moses said, Eat it today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field. Shemot 16:25


+ 172 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day which is the Sabbath on it there will be none. Shemot 16:26


+ 127 It came about that on the seventh day, some of the people went out to gather manna, but they did not find any. Shemot 16:27


+ 143 The Lord said to Moses, How long will you refuse to observe My commandments and My teachings? Shemot 16:28


+ 156 See that the Lord has given you the Sabbath. Therefore, on the sixth day, He gives you bread for two days. Let each man remain in his place; let no man leave his place on the seventh day. Shemot 16:29


+ 159 Moses said, This is the thing that the Lord commanded: Let one omerful of it be preserved for your generations, in order that they see the bread that I fed you in the desert when I took you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:32


+ 152 So the people quarreled with Moses, and they said, Give us water that we may drink Moses said to them, Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you test the Lord? Shemot 17:2


+ 171 Now Moses hands were heavy; so they took a stone and placed it under him, and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one from this side, and one from that side; so he was with his hands in faith until sunset. Shemot 17:12


+ 151 So Moses' father in law, Jethro, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after she had been sent away, Shemot 18:2


+ 180 Then Moses father in law, Jethro, sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings to God, and Aaron and all the elders of Israel came to dine with Moses father in law before God. Shemot 18:12


+ 154 And you shall admonish them concerning the statutes and the teachings, and you shall make known to them the way they shall go and the deeds they shall do. Shemot 18:20


+ 177 But you shall choose out of the entire nation men of substance, God fearers, men of truth, who hate monetary gain, and you shall appoint over them Israel leaders over thousands, leaders over hundreds, leaders over fifties, and leaders over tens. Shemot 18:21


+ 163 And they shall judge the people at all times, and it shall be that any major matter they shall bring to you, and they themselves shall judge every minor matter, thereby making it easier for you, and they shall bear the burden with you. Shemot 18:22


+ 149 If you do this thing, and the Lord commands you, you will be able to survive, and also, all this people will come upon their place in peace. Shemot 18:23


+ 129 Moses obeyed his father in law, and he did all that he said. Shemot 18:24


+ 154 Moses chose men of substance out of all Israel and appointed them as heads of the people, leaders of thousands, leaders of hundreds, leaders of fifties, and leaders of tens. Shemot 18:25


+ 145 And they would judge the people at all times; the difficult case they would bring to Moses, but any minor case they themselves would judge. Shemot 18:26


+ 138 Moses saw his father in law off, and he went away to his land. Shemot 18:27


+ 157 They journeyed from Rephidim, and they arrived in the desert of Sinai, and they encamped in the desert, and Israel encamped there opposite the mountain. Shemot 19:2


+ 143 And you shall set boundaries for the people around, saying, Beware of ascending the mountain or touching its edge; whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death. Shemot 19:12


+ 134 The Lord descended upon Mount Sinai, to the peak of the mountain, and the Lord summoned Moses to the peak of the mountain, and Moses ascended. Shemot 19:20


+ 150 The Lord said to Moses, Go down, warn the people lest they break their formation to go nearer to the Lord, and many of them will fall. Shemot 19:21


+ 147 And also, the priests who go near to the Lord shall prepare themselves, lest the Lord wreak destruction upon them. Shemot 19:22


+ 165 And Moses said to the Lord, The people cannot ascend to Mount Sinai, for You warned us saying, Set boundaries for the mountain and sanctify it. Shemot 19:23


+ 165 But the Lord said to him, Go, descend, and then you shall ascend, and Aaron with you, but the priests and the populace shall not break their formation to ascend to the Lord, lest He wreak destruction upon them. Shemot 19:24


+ 127 So Moses went down to the people and said this to them. Shemot 19:25


+ 120 God spoke all these words, to respond: Shemot 20:1


+ 130 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Shemot 20:2


+ 147 You shall not have the gods of others in My presence. Shemot 20:3


+ 162 You shall not make for yourself a graven image or any likeness which is in the heavens above, which is on the earth below, or which is in the water beneath the earth. Shemot 20:4


+ 151 You shall neither prostrate yourself before them nor worship them, for I, the Lord, your God, am a zealous God, Who visits the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons, upon the third and the fourth generation of those who hate Me, Shemot 20:5


+ 173 And I perform loving kindness to thousands of generations, to those who love Me and to those who keep My commandments. Shemot 20:6


+ 138 You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain, for the Lord will not hold blameless anyone who takes His name in vain. Shemot 20:7


+ 133 Remember the Sabbath day to sanctify it. Shemot 20:8


+ 134 Six days may you work and perform all your labor, Shemot 20:9


+ 186 But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord, your God; you shall perform no labor, neither you, your son, your daughter, your manservant, your maidservant, your beast, nor your stranger who is in your cities. Shemot 20:10


+ 148 For in six days the Lord made the heaven and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and He rested on the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and sanctified it. Shemot 20:11


+ 138 Honor your father and your mother, in order that your days be lengthened on the land that the Lord, your God, is giving you. Shemot 20:12


+ 143 You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Shemot 20:13


+ 152 You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, his manservant, his maidservant, his ox, his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbor. Shemot 20:14


+ 145 And all the people saw the voices and the torches, the sound of the shofar, and the smoking mountain, and the people saw and trembled; so they stood from afar. Shemot 20:15


+ 153 They said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear, but let God not speak with us lest we die. Shemot 20:16


+ 176 But Moses said to the people, Fear not, for God has come in order to exalt you, and in order that His awe shall be upon your faces, so that you shall not sin. Shemot 20:17


+ 155 The people remained far off, but Moses drew near to the opaque darkness, where God was. Shemot 20:18


+ 197 The Lord said to Moses, So shall you say to the children of Israel, You have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you. Shemot 20:19


+ 160 You shall not make images of anything that is with Me. Gods of silver or gods of gold you shall not make for yourselves. Shemot 20:20


+ 175 An altar of earth you shall make for Me, and you shall slaughter beside it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your cattle. Wherever I allow My name to be mentioned, I will come to you and bless you. Shemot 20:21


+ 139 And when you make for Me an altar of stones, you shall not build them of hewn stones, lest you wield your sword upon it and desecrate it. Shemot 20:22


+ 135 And you shall not ascend with steps upon My altar, so that your nakedness shall not be exposed upon it. Shemot 20:23


+ 121 And these are the ordinances that you shall set before them. Shemot 21:1


+ 140 Should you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall work for six years, and in the seventh year, he shall go out to freedom without charge. Shemot 21:2


+ 124 If he comes in alone, he shall go out alone; if he is a married man, his wife shall go out with him. Shemot 21:3


+ 129 If his master gives him a wife, and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to her master, and he shall go out alone. Shemot 21:4


+ 158 But if the slave says, I love my master, my wife, and my children. I will not go free, Shemot 21:5


+ 129 His master shall bring him to the judges, and he shall bring him to the door or to the doorpost, and his master shall bore his ear with an awl, and he shall serve him forever. Shemot 21:6


+ 126 Now if a man sells his daughter as a maidservant, she shall not go free as the slaves go free. Shemot 21:7


+ 150 If she is displeasing to her master, who did not designate her for himself, then he shall enable her to be redeemed; he shall not rule over her to sell her to another person, when he betrays her. Shemot 21:8


+ 133 And if he designates her for his son, he shall deal with her according to the law of the daughters of Israel. Shemot 21:9


+ 132 If he takes another wife for himself, he shall not diminish her sustenance, her clothing, or her marital relations. Shemot 21:10


+ 148 And if he does not do these three things for her, she shall go free without charge, without payment of money. Shemot 21:11


+ 111 One who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:12


+ 142 But one who did not stalk him, but God brought it about into his hand, I will make a place for you to which he shall flee. Shemot 21:13


+ 138 But if a man plots deliberately against his friend to slay him with cunning, even from My altar you shall take him to die. Shemot 21:14


+ 142 And one who strikes his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:15


+ 116 And whoever kidnaps a man, and he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:16


+ 133 And one who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:17


+ 122 And if men quarrel, and one strikes the other with a stone or with a fist, and he does not die but is confined to his bed, Shemot 21:18


+ 142 If he gets up and walks about outside on his support, the assailant shall be cleared; he shall give only payment for his enforced idleness, and he shall provide for his cure. Shemot 21:19


+ 113 And should a man strike his manservant or his maidservant with a rod, and that one die under his hand, he shall surely be avenged. Shemot 21:20


+ 120 But if he survives for a day or for two days, he shall not be avenged, because he is his property. Shemot 21:21


+ 154 And should men quarrel and hit a pregnant woman, and she miscarries but there is no fatality, he shall surely be punished, when the woman's husband makes demands of him, and he shall give restitution according to the judges orders. Shemot 21:22


+ 147 But if there is a fatality, you shall give a life for a life, Shemot 21:23


+ 107 An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, a foot for a foot, Shemot 21:24


+ 130 A burn for a burn, a wound for a wound, a bruise for a bruise. Shemot 21:25


+ 152 And if a man strikes the eye of his manservant or the eye of his maidservant and destroys it, he shall set him free in return for his eye, Shemot 21:26


+ 141 And if he knocks out the tooth of his manservant or the tooth of his maidservant, he shall set him free in return for his tooth. Shemot 21:27


+ 206 And if a bull gores a man or a woman and that one dies, the bull shall surely be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten, and the owner of the bull is clear. Shemot 21:28


+ 133 But if it is a habitually goring bull since yesterday and the day before yesterday, and its owner had been warned, but he did not guard it, and it puts to death a man or a woman, the bull shall be stoned, and also its owner shall be put to death, Shemot 21:29


+ 133 Insofar as ransom shall be levied upon him, he shall give the redemption of his soul according to all that is levied upon him. Shemot 21:30


+ 161 Or if it gores a young boy or a young girl, according to this ordinance shall be done to him. Shemot 21:31


+ 142 If the bull gores a manservant or a maidservant, he shall give silver in the amount of thirty shekels to his master, and the bull shall be stoned. Shemot 21:32


+ 129 And if a person opens a pit, or if a person digs a pit and does not cover it, and a bull or a donkey falls into it, Shemot 21:33


+ 120 The owner of the pit shall pay; he shall return money to its owner, and the dead body shall be his. Shemot 21:34


+ 131 And if a man's bull strikes his friend's bull and it dies, they shall sell the live bull and divide the money received for it, and they shall also divide the dead body. Shemot 21:35


+ 141 Or if it was known that it was a habitually goring bull since yesterday and the day before yesterday, and its owner does not watch it, he shall surely pay a bull for a bull, and the dead body shall be his. Shemot 21:36


+ 147 If a man steals a bull or a lamb and slaughters it or sells it, he shall pay five cattle for the bull or four sheep for the lamb. Shemot 21:37


+ 138 If, while breaking in, the thief is discovered, and he is struck and dies, it is as if he has no blood. Shemot 22:1


+ 133 If the sun shone upon him, it is as if he has blood; he shall surely pay. If he has no money, he shall be sold for his theft. Shemot 22:2


+ 145 If the stolen article is found in his possession whether a bull, a donkey, or a lamb live ones he shall pay twofold. Shemot 22:3


+ 141 If a man leads his animals into a field or a vineyard, or lets his animal loose and it eats in another's field, the best of his field or the best of his vineyard he shall pay. Shemot 22:4


+ 150 If a fire goes forth and finds thorns, and a stack of grain or standing grain or the field be consumed, the one who ignited the fire shall surely pay. Shemot 22:5


+ 155 If a man gives his neighbor money or articles for safekeeping, and it is stolen from the man's house, if the thief is found, he shall pay twofold. Shemot 22:6


+ 142 If the thief is not found, the homeowner shall approach the judges, to swear that he has not laid his hand upon his neighbor's property. Shemot 22:7


+ 172 For any sinful word, for a bull, for a donkey, for a lamb, for a garment, for any lost article, concerning which he will say that this is it, the pleas of both parties shall come to the judges, and whoever the judges declare guilty shall pay twofold to his neighbor. Shemot 22:8


+ 136 If a man gives his neighbor a donkey, a bull, a lamb, or any animal for safekeeping, and it dies, breaks a limb, or is captured, and no one sees it, Shemot 22:9


+ 149 The oath of the Lord shall be between the two of them provided that he did not lay his hand upon his neighbor's property, and its owner shall accept it, and he shall not pay. Shemot 22:10


+ 145 But if it is stolen from him, he shall pay its owner. Shemot 22:11


+ 138 If it is torn apart, he shall bring witness for it; for the torn one he shall not pay. Shemot 22:12


+ 153 And if a person borrows an animal from his neighbor and it breaks a limb or dies, if its owner is not with him, he shall surely pay. Shemot 22:13


+ 125 If its owner is with him, he shall not pay; if it is a hired animal, it has come for its hire. Shemot 22:14


+ 173 If a man seduces a virgin who is not betrothed and lies with her, he shall provide her with a marriage contract as a wife. Shemot 22:15


+ 149 If her father refuses to give her to him in marriage, he shall weigh out money according to the dowry of the virgins. Shemot 22:16


+ 130 You shall not allow a sorceress to live. Shemot 22:17


+ 129 Whoever lies carnally with an animal shall surely be put to death. Shemot 22:18


+ 141 He who slaughters a sacrifice to the gods shall be destroyed, except to the Lord alone. Shemot 22:19


+ 153 And you shall not mistreat a stranger, nor shall you oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. Shemot 22:20


+ 128 You shall not oppress any widow or orphan. Shemot 22:21


+ 121 If you oppress him, beware, for if he cries out to Me, I will surely hear his cry. Shemot 22:22


+ 146 My wrath will be kindled, and I will slay you with the sword, and your wives will be widows and your children orphans. Shemot 22:23


+ 168 When you lend money to My people, to the poor person who is with you, you shall not behave toward him as a lender; you shall not impose interest upon him. Shemot 22:24


+ 130 If you take your neighbor's garment as security, until sunset you shall return it to him, Shemot 22:25


+ 152 For it is his only covering; it is his garment for his skin. With what shall he lie? And it shall be that if he cries out to Me, I will hear because I am gracious. Shemot 22:26


+ 126 You shall not curse a judge, neither shall you curse a prince among your people. Shemot 22:27


+ 140 Your fullness offering and your heave offering you shall not delay; the firstborn of your sons you shall give Me. Shemot 22:28


+ 125 So shall you do with your cattle and with your sheep: seven days it shall be with its mother, on the eighth day you may give it to Me. Shemot 22:29


+ 121 And you shall be holy people to Me, and flesh torn in the field you shall not eat; you shall throw it to the dogs. Shemot 22:30


+ 122 You shall not accept a false report; do not place your hand with a wicked person to be a false witness. Shemot 23:1


+ 137 You shall not follow the majority for evil, and you shall not respond concerning a lawsuit to follow many to pervert justice. Shemot 23:2


+ 144 Neither shall you glorify a poor man in his lawsuit. Shemot 23:3


+ 126 If you come upon your enemy's bull or his stray donkey, you shall surely return it to him. Shemot 23:4


+ 148 If you see your enemy's donkey lying under its burden would you refrain from helping him? You shall surely help along with him. Shemot 23:5


+ 147 You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor man in his lawsuit. Shemot 23:6


+ 147 Distance yourself from a false matter; and do not kill a truly innocent person or one who has been declared innocent, for I will not vindicate a guilty person. Shemot 23:7


+ 135 You shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe will blind the clear sighted and corrupt words that are right. Shemot 23:8


+ 134 And you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the feelings of the stranger, since you were strangers in the land of Egypt. Shemot 23:9


+ 108 Six years you may sow your land and gather in its produce. Shemot 23:10


+ 167 But in the seventh year you shall release it and abandon it; the poor of your people shall eat it, and what they leave over, the beasts of the field shall eat. So shall you do to your vineyard and to your olive trees. Shemot 23:11


+ 148 Six days you may do your work, but on the seventh day you shall rest, in order that your ox and your donkey shall rest, and your maidservant's son and the stranger shall be refreshed. Shemot 23:12


+ 153 Concerning all that I have said to you you shall beware, and the name of the gods of others you shall not mention; it shall not be heard through your mouth. Shemot 23:13


+ 129 Three times you shall slaughter sacrifices to Me during the year. Shemot 23:14


+ 159 You shall observe the festival of unleavened bread; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread as I have commanded you, at the appointed time of the month of springtime, for then you left Egypt, and they shall not appear before Me empty handed. Shemot 23:15


+ 158 And the festival of the harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you will sow in the field, and the festival of the ingathering at the departure of the year, when you gather in the products of your labors from the field. Shemot 23:16


+ 117 Three times during the year, all your males shall appear before the Master, the Lord. Shemot 23:17


+ 143 You shall not sacrifice the blood of My sacrifice with leaven, and the fat of My festive sacrifice shall not stay overnight until morning. Shemot 23:18


+ 150 The choicest of the first fruits of your soil you shall bring to the house of the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Shemot 23:19


+ 149 Behold, I am sending an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. Shemot 23:20


+ 140 Beware of him and obey him; do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your transgression, for My Name is within him. Shemot 23:21


+ 135 For if you hearken to his voice and do all that I say, I will hate your enemies and oppress your adversaries. Shemot 23:22


+ 140 For My angel will go before you, and bring you to the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, and I will destroy them. Shemot 23:23


+ 157 You shall not prostrate yourself before their gods, and you shall not worship them, and you shall not follow their practices, but you shall tear them down and you shall utterly shatter their monuments. Shemot 23:24


+ 156 And you shall worship the Lord, your God, and He will bless your food and your drink, and I will remove illness from your midst. Shemot 23:25


+ 129 There will be no bereaved or barren woman in your land; I will fill the number of your days. Shemot 23:26


+ 131 I will send My fear before you, and I will confuse all the people among whom you shall come, and I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. Shemot 23:27


+ 138 And I will send the tzir'ah before you, and it will drive out the Hivvites, the Canaanites, and the Hittites from before you. Shemot 23:28


+ 139 I will not drive them away from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field outnumber you. Shemot 23:29


+ 137 I will drive them out from before you little by little, until you have increased and can occupy the land. Shemot 23:30


+ 169 And I will make your boundary from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert to the river, for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hands, and you shall drive them out from before you. Shemot 23:31


+ 138 You shall not form a covenant for them or for their gods. Shemot 23:32


+ 145 They shall not dwell in your land, lest they cause you to sin against Me, that you will worship their gods, which will be a snare for you. Shemot 23:33


+ 173 And to Moses He said, Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and prostrate yourselves from afar. Shemot 24:1


+ 134 And Moses alone shall approach the Lord but they shall not approach, and the people shall not ascend with him." Shemot 24:2


+ 164 So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the ordinances, and all the people answered in unison and said, "All the words that the Lord has spoken we will do." Shemot 24:3


+ 156 And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord, and he arose early in the morning and built an altar at the foot of the mountain and twelve monuments for the twelve tribes of Israel. Shemot 24:4


+ 152 And he sent the youths of the children of Israel, and they offered up burnt offerings, and they slaughtered peace offerings to the Lord, bulls. Shemot 24:5


+ 133 And Moses took half the blood and put it into the basins, and half the blood he cast onto the altar. Shemot 24:6


+ 129 And he took the Book of the Covenant and read it within the hearing of the people, and they said, "All that the Lord spoke we will do and we will hear." Shemot 24:7


+ 173 And Moses took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, and he said, "Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord has formed with you concerning these words." Shemot 24:8


+ 140 And Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel ascended, Shemot 24:9


+ 144 And they perceived the God of Israel, and beneath His feet was like the forming of a sapphire brick and like the appearance of the heavens for clarity. Shemot 24:10


+ 120 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand, and they perceived God, and they ate and drank. Shemot 24:11


+ 159 And the Lord said to Moses, Come up to Me to the mountain and remain there, and I will give you the stone tablets, the Law and the commandments, which I have written to instruct them. Shemot 24:12


+ 141 So Moses and Joshua, his servant, arose, and Moses ascended to the mount of God. Shemot 24:13


+ 127 And to the elders he said, Wait for us here until we return to you, and here Aaron and Hur are with you; whoever has a case, let him go to them. Shemot 24:14


+ 128 And Moses went up to the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. Shemot 24:15


+ 145 And the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days, and He called to Moses on the seventh day from within the cloud. Shemot 24:16


+ 232 And the appearance of the glory of the Lord was like a consuming fire atop the mountain, before the eyes of the children of Israel. Shemot 24:17


+ 128 And Moses came within the cloud, and he went up to the mountain, and Moses was upon the mountain forty days and forty nights. Shemot 24:18


+ 129 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Shemot 25:1


+ 156 Speak to the children of Israel, and have them take for Me an offering; from every person whose heart inspires him to generosity, you shall take My offering. Shemot 25:2


+ 136 And this is the offering that you shall take from them: gold, silver, and copper; Shemot 25:3


+ 116 Blue, purple, and crimson wool; linen and goat hair; Shemot 25:4


+ 127 Ram skins dyed red, tachash skins, and acacia wood; Shemot 25:5

Shemot 29:21


+ 142 You shall then take some of the blood that is upon the altar and some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron and upon his garments, upon his sons and upon the garments of his sons with him; thus he will become holy along with his garments, and his sons and their garments with him. Shemot 29:22


+ 151 And you shall take out of the ram the fat and the fat tail and the fat that covers the innards, the diaphragm of the liver, the two kidneys along with the fat that is upon them, and the right thigh, for it is a ram of perfection. Shemot 29:22


+ 122 And one loaf of bread, one loaf of oil bread, and one wafer from the basket of matzoth that stands before the Lord, Shemot 29:23


+ 131 And you shall place it all upon Aaron's palms and upon his sons' palms, and you shall wave them as a waving before the Lord. Shemot 29:24

+ 160 And so it shall remain for Aaron and his sons as a perpetual allotment from the children of Israel; for it is an offering, and it shall remain an offering from the children of Israel of their peace offerings; it is their offering to the Lord. Shemot 29:28


+ 132 The holy garments that are Aaron's shall be for his sons after him, to be exalted through them and invested with full authority through them. Shemot 29:29

+ 115 You shall take the ram of perfection and cook its flesh in a holy place. Shemot 29:31


+ 133 Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram and the bread that is in the basket, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 29:32


+ 140 They shall eat those things with which atonement has been effected, in order to invest them with full authority, to sanctify them, but a stranger shall not eat of them, because they are a sacred thing. Shemot 29:33


+ 148 If any of the flesh of the perfection offering or of the bread is left over until the next morning, what is left over you shall burn in fire; it shall not be eaten because it is a sacred thing. Shemot 29:34


+ 148 So shall you do to Aaron and his sons, according to all that I have commanded you; for seven days you shall perform their investiture. Shemot 29:35


+ 139 And a bull as a sin offering you shall offer up every day for the atonements, and you shall purify the altar by performing atonement upon it, and you shall anoint it, in order to sanctify it. Shemot 29:36

+ 137 And this is what you shall offer upon the altar: lambs in their first year, two a day, continually. Shemot 29:38


+ 110 The one lamb you shall offer up in the morning and the other lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon. Shemot 29:39


+ 161 And one tenth of fine flour, thoroughly mixed with a quarter of a hin of crushed olive oil, and a libation of one quarter of a hin of wine, for the one lamb. Shemot 29:40


+ 165 And the other lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon; you shall offer it up like the meal offering of the morning and its libation, as a spirit of satisfaction, a fire offering to the Lord. Shemot 29:41


+ 153 It shall be a continual burnt offering for your generations, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting before the Lord, where I will arrange meetings with you, to speak to you there. Shemot 29:42


+ 135 There I will arrange meetings with the children of Israel, and it will be sanctified by My glory. Shemot 29:43


+ 113 I will sanctify the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and I will sanctify Aaron and his sons to serve Me as kohanim. Shemot 29:44


+ 121 I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel and I will be their God. Shemot 29:45


+ 122 They will know that I, the Lord, am their God, Who brought them out of the land of Egypt in order that I may dwell in their midst; I am the Lord, their God. Shemot 29:46


+ 113 It shall be one cubit long and one cubit wide, a square, and two cubits high; its horns shall be one piece with it. Shemot 30:2


+ 145 When you take the sum of the children of Israel according to their numbers, let each one give to the Lord an atonement for his soul when they are counted; then there will be no plague among them when they are counted. Shemot 30:12


+ 137 When they enter the Tent of Meeting, they shall wash with water so that they will not die; or when they approach the altar to serve, to make a fire offering rise up in smoke to the Lord, Shemot 30:20


+ 129 They shall wash their hands and feet so that they will not die; this shall be for them a perpetual statute, for him and for his descendants, for their generations. Shemot 30:21


+ 111 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:22


+ 139 And you, take for yourself spices of the finest sort: of pure myrrh five hundred shekel weights; of fragrant cinnamon half of it two hundred and fifty shekel weights; of fragrant cane two hundred and fifty shekel weights, Shemot 30:23


+ 106 And of cassia five hundred shekel weights according to the holy shekel, and one hin of olive oil. Shemot 30:24


+ 118 You shall make this into an oil of holy annoinment, a perfumed compound according to the art of a perfumer; it shall be an oil of holy anointment. Shemot 30:25


+ 107 And you shall anoint with it the Tent of Meeting and the Ark of Testimony, Shemot 30:26


+ 101 The table and all its implements, the menorah and its implements, the altar of incense, Shemot 30:27


+ 94 The altar of the burnt offering and all its implements, the washstand and its base. Shemot 30:28


+ 100 And you shall sanctify them so that they become a holy of holies; whatever touches them shall become holy. Shemot 30:29


+ 128 It shall not be poured upon human flesh, and according to its formula you shall not make anything like it. It is holy; it shall be holy to you. Shemot 30:32


+ 104 See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, Shemot 31:2


+ 118 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 31:12


+ 162 When the people saw that Moses was late in coming down from the mountain, the people gathered against Aaron, and they said to him: Come on! Make us gods that will go before us, because this man Moses, who brought us up from the land of Egypt we don't know what has become of him. Shemot 32:1


+ 115 Aaron said to them, Remove the golden earrings that are on the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters and bring them those earrings to me. Shemot 32:2


+ 132 And all the people stripped themselves of the golden earrings that were on their ears and brought them to Aaron. Shemot 32:3


+ 168 He took them from their hands, fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made it into a molten calf, upon which they said: These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you up from the land of Egypt! Shemot 32:4


+ 117 When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of it, and Aaron proclaimed and said: Tomorrow shall be a festival to the Lord. Shemot 32:5


+ 122 On the next day they arose early, offered up burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings, and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and they got up to make merry. Shemot 32:6


+ 144 And the Lord said to Moses: Go, descend, for your people that you have brought up from the land of Egypt have acted corruptly. Shemot 32:7


+ 161 They have quickly turned away from the path that I have commanded them; they have made themselves a molten calf! And they have prostrated themselves before it, slaughtered sacrifices to it, and said: These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you up from the land of Egypt. Shemot 32:8


+ 137 And the Lord said to Moses: I have seen this people and behold! they are a stiff necked people. Shemot 32:9


+ 114 Now leave Me alone, and My anger will be kindled against them so that I will annihilate them, and I will make you into a great nation. Shemot 32:10


+ 185 Moses pleaded before the Lord, his God, and said: Why, O Lord, should Your anger be kindled against Your people whom You have brought up from the land of Egypt with great power and with a strong hand? Shemot 32:11


+ 138 Why should the Egyptians say: He brought them out with evil intent to kill them in the mountains and to annihilate them from upon the face of the earth? Retreat from the heat of Your anger and reconsider the evil intended for Your people. Shemot 32:12


+ 160 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your very Self, and to whom You said: I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and all this land which I said that I would give to your seed, they shall keep it as their possession forever. Shemot 32:13


+ 101 The Lord then reconsidered the evil He had said He would do to His people. Shemot 32:14


+ 165 Now Moses turned and went down from the mountain bearing the two tablets of the testimony in his hand, tablets inscribed from both their sides; on one side and on the other side they were inscribed. Shemot 32:15


+ 103 Now the tablets were God's work, and the inscription was God's inscription, engraved on the tablets. Shemot 32:16


+ 115 When Joshua heard the voice of the people in their shouting, he said to Moses: There is a voice of battle in the camp! Shemot 32:17


+ 140 But Moses said: It is neither a voice shouting victory, nor a voice shouting defeat; a voice of blasphemy I hear. Shemot 32:18


+ 146 Now it came to pass when he drew closer to the camp and saw the calf and the dances, that Moses anger was kindled, and he flung the tablets from his hands, shattering them at the foot of the mountain. Shemot 32:19


+ 160 Then he took the calf they had made, burned it in fire, ground it to fine powder, scattered it upon the surface of the water, and gave it to the children of Israel to drink. Shemot 32:20


+ 164 Moses said to Aaron: What did this people do to you that you brought such a grave sin upon them? Shemot 32:21


+ 112 Aaron replied: Let not my lord's anger grow hot! You know the people, that they are disposed toward evil. Shemot 32:22


+ 123 They said to me, Make us gods who will go before us, because this man Moses, who brought us up from the land of Egypt we do not know what has become of him. Shemot 32:23


+ 121 I said to them, Who has gold? So they took it the gold off and gave it to me; I threw it into the fire and out came this calf. Shemot 32:24


+ 141 And Moses saw the people, that they were exposed, for Aaron had exposed them to be disgraced before their adversaries. Shemot 32:25


+ 142 So Moses stood in the gate of the camp and said: Whoever is for the Lord, let him come to me! And all the sons of Levi gathered around him. Shemot 32:26


+ 141 He said to them: So said the Lord, the God of Israel: Let every man place his sword upon his thigh and pass back and forth from one gate to the other in the camp, and let every man kill his brother, every man his friend, every man his kinsman. Shemot 32:27


+ 134 The sons of Levi did according to Moses word; on that day some three thousand men fell from among the people. Shemot 32:28


+ 155 And Moses said: Initiate yourselves today for the Lord for each man with his son and with his brother so that He may bestow a blessing upon you this day. Shemot 32:29


+ 145 It came to pass on the next day that Moses said to the people: You have committed a grave sin. And now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I will obtain atonement for your sin. Shemot 32:30


+ 168 And Moses returned to the Lord and said: Please! This people has committed a grave sin. They have made themselves a god of gold. Shemot 32:31


+ 126 And now, if You forgive their sin But if not, erase me now from Your book, which You have written. Shemot 32:32


+ 121 And the Lord said to Moses: Whoever has sinned against Me, him I will erase from My book! Shemot 32:33


+ 136 And now go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. Behold My angel will go before you. But on the day I make an accounting of sins upon them, I will bring their sin to account against them. Shemot 32:34


+ 98 Then the Lord struck the people with a plague, because they had made the calf that Aaron had made. Shemot 32:35


+ 100 I will send an angel before you, and I will drive out the Canaanites, the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites. Shemot 33:2


+ 162 Moses said to the Lord: Look, You say to me: Bring this people up! But You have not informed me whom You will send with me. And You said: I have known you by name and you have also found favor in My eyes. Shemot 33:12


+ 118 And He said, You will not be able to see My face, for man shall not see Me and live. Shemot 33:20


+ 102 And the Lord said: Behold, there is a place with Me, and you shall stand on the rock. Shemot 33:21


+ 129 And it shall be that when My glory passes by, I will place you into the cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Shemot 33:22


+ 125 Then I will remove My hand, and you will see My back but My face shall not be seen. Shemot 33:23


+ 117 Be prepared for the morning, and in the morning you shall ascend Mount Sinai and stand before Me there on the top of the mountain. Shemot 34:2


+ 112 Beware lest you form a covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are coming, lest it become a snare in your midst. Shemot 34:12


+ 113 And a firstborn donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; if you do not redeem it, you shall decapitate it; every firstborn of your sons you shall redeem, and they shall not appear before Me empty handed. Shemot 34:20


+ 110 Six days you may work, and on the seventh day you shall rest; in plowing and in harvest you shall rest. Shemot 34:21


+ 125 And you shall make for yourself a Festival of Weeks, the first of the wheat harvest, and the festival of the ingathering, at the turn of the year. Shemot 34:22


+ 112 Three times during the year shall all your male appear directly before the Master, the Lord, the God of Israel. Shemot 34:23


+ 125 When I drive out nations from before you and I widen your border, no one will covet your land when you go up, to appear before the Lord, your God, three times each year. Shemot 34:24


+ 128 You shall not slaughter or sprinkle the blood of My sacrifice with leaven, and the offering of the Passover feast shall not remain overnight until the morning. Shemot 34:25


+ 133 The choicest of the first of your soil you shall bring to the house of the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Shemot 34:26


+ 150 The Lord said to Moses: Inscribe these words for yourself, for according to these words I have formed a covenant with you and with Israel. Shemot 34:27


+ 144 He was there with the Lord for forty days and forty nights; he ate no bread and drank no water, and He inscribed upon the tablets the words of the Covenant, the Ten Commandments. Shemot 34:28


+ 146 And it came to pass when Moses descended from Mount Sinai, and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses' hand when he descended from the mountain and Moses did not know that the skin of his face had become radiant while He had spoken with him. Shemot 34:29


+ 129 Afterwards all the children of Israel would draw near, and he would command them everything that the Lord had spoken with him on Mount Sinai. Shemot 34:32


+ 132 Six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have sanctity, a day of complete rest to the Lord; whoever performs work thereon on this day shall be put to death. Shemot 35:2


+ 94 The ark and its poles, the ark cover and the screening dividing curtain; Shemot 35:12


+ 116 The entire community departed from before Moses. Shemot 35:20


+ 143 Every man whose heart uplifted him came, and everyone whose spirit inspired him to generosity brought the offering of the Lord for the work of the Tent of Meeting, for all its service, and for the holy garments. Shemot 35:21


+ 140 The men came with the women; every generous hearted person brought bracelets and earrings and rings and buckles, all kinds of golden objects, and every man who waved a waving of gold to the Lord. Shemot 35:22


+ 178 And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every wise hearted man into whose heart the Lord had given wisdom, everyone whose heart lifted him up to approach the work to do it. Shemot 36:2


+ 116 He made fifty loops on the edge of one curtain, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain in the second set; the loops corresponded to one another. Shemot 36:12


+ 97 And he made the planks for the Mishkan of acacia wood, upright. Shemot 36:20


+ 96 Ten cubits was the length of each plank, and a cubit and a half was the width of each plank. Shemot 36:21


+ 117 Each plank had two square pegs, rung like, one even with the other; so did he make for all the planks of the Mishkan. Shemot 36:22


+ 99 And he made the planks for the Mishkan, twenty planks for the southern side. Shemot 36:23


+ 108 And he made forty silver sockets under the twenty planks; two sockets under one plank for its two square pegs, and two sockets under one plank for its two square pegs. Shemot 36:24


+ 92 And for the second side of the Mishkan on the northern side he made twenty planks. Shemot 36:25


+ 162 And their forty silver sockets: two sockets under one plank and two sockets under one plank. Shemot 36:26


+ 106 And for the western end of the Mishkan he made six planks. Shemot 36:27


+ 96 And he made two planks at the corners of the Mishkan at the end. Shemot 36:28


+ 111 And they were matched evenly from below, and together they matched at its top, to be put into the one ring; so did he make for both of them; for the two corners. Shemot 36:29


+ 114 And five bars for the planks of the second side of the Mishkan, and five bars for the planks of the rear side of the Mishkan, on the westward end. Shemot 36:32


+ 114 And he overlaid it with pure gold from inside and from outside, and he made for it a golden crown all around. Shemot 37:2


+ 122 And he made for it a frame a handbreadth wide all around, and he made a golden crown for its frame all around. Shemot 37:12


+ 119 And on the stem of the menorah were four decorated goblets, its knobs and its flowers. Shemot 37:20


+ 88 And a knob under the two branches from it, and a knob under the two branches from it, and a knob under the two branches from it; so for the six branches that come out of it. Shemot 37:21


+ 110 Their knobs and their branches were all one piece with it; all of it was one hammered mass of pure gold. Shemot 37:22


+ 85 And he made its lamps seven, and its tongs and its scoops of pure gold. Shemot 37:23


+ 95 He made it of a talent of pure gold, and all its implements. Shemot 37:24


+ 106 And he made the incense altar out of acacia wood, one cubit long and one cubit wide, square, and two cubits high; its horns were one piece with it. Shemot 37:25


+ 117 And he overlaid it with pure gold, on its top, its walls all around, and its horns; and he made for it a golden crown all around. Shemot 37:26


+ 108 And he made two golden rings for it underneath its crown on its two corners, on its two sides, as holders for poles with which to carry it. Shemot 37:27


+ 111 He made the poles out of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. Shemot 37:28


+ 96 And he made the holy anointing oil and the pure incense after the art of a perfumer. Shemot 37:29


+ 88 And he made its horns on its four corners; its horns were all one piece from it, and he overlaid it with copper. Shemot 38:2


+ 125 And for the western side, hangings fifty cubits, their pillars ten and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars and their bands of silver. Shemot 38:12


+ 103 And all the pegs of the Mishkan and of the courtyard all around were copper. Shemot 38:20


+ 140 These are the numbers of the Mishkan, the Mishkan of the Testimony, which were counted at Moses' command; this was the work of the Levites under the direction of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the Kohen. Shemot 38:21


+ 119 Bezalel, son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, had made all that the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 38:22


+ 118 With him was Oholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, a craftsman and master weaver, and an embroiderer in blue, purple, and crimson wool and in linen. Shemot 38:23


+ 113 All the gold that had been used for the work in all the work of the Holy the gold of the waving was twenty nine talents, seven hundred and thirty shekels, according to the holy shekel. Shemot 38:24


+ 96 The silver of the community numbers was one hundred talents and one thousand seven hundred and seventy five shekels, according to the holy shekel. Shemot 38:25


+ 110 One bekka per head; that is, half a shekel according to the holy shekel for each one who goes through the counting, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred three thousand, five hundred and fifty people. Shemot 38:26


+ 94 One hundred talents of the silver were used for casting the sockets of the Holy and the sockets of the dividing curtain; one hundred sockets out of one hundred talents, one talent for each socket. Shemot 38:27


+ 102 And out of the one thousand seven hundred and seventy five shekels he made hooks for the pillars, and he covered their tops and banded them. Shemot 38:29


+ 90 The copper of the waving was seventy talents and two thousand four hundred shekels. Shemot 38:29


+ 90 And he made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen. Shemot 39:2


+ 94 And the third row: leshem, shevo, and achlamah. Shemot 39:12


+ 140 And they made two golden rings and placed them on the two shoulder straps of the ephod, from below, toward its front, adjacent to its seam, above the band of the ephod. Shemot 39:20


+ 117 And they fastened the choshen by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a cord of blue wool, so that it could be upon the band of the ephod, so that the choshen would not move off the ephod, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:21


+ 93 And he made the robe of the ephod, the work of a weaver, completely of blue wool. Shemot 39:22


+ 110 And the opening of the robe was turned inward like the opening of a coat of armor; its opening had a border around it so that it should not be torn. Shemot 39:23


+ 108 And they made on the bottom hem of the robe pomegranates of blue, purple, and crimson wool, twisted. Shemot 39:24


+ 112 And they made bells of pure gold, and they placed the bells in the midst of the pomegranates all around on the bottom hem of the robe, in the midst of the pomegranates. Shemot 39:25


+ 111 A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, all around on the bottom hem of the robe, to serve as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:26


+ 107 And they made the linen tunics, the work of a weaver, for Aaron and for his sons, Shemot 39:27


+ 104 And the cap of linen, and the glorious high hats of linen, and the linen pants of twisted fine linen, Shemot 39:28


+ 122 And the sash of twisted fine linen, and blue, purple, and crimson wool, of embroidery work as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:29


+ 144 All the work of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting was completed; the children of Israel had done it; according to all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so they had done. Shemot 39:32


+ 131 In accordance with all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel do all the work. Shemot 39:42


+ 88 On the day of the first month, on the first of the month, you shall set up the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 40:2


+ 98 And you shall bring Aaron and his sons near the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and you shall bathe them in water. Shemot 40:12


+ 95 He took and placed the testimony into the ark, put the poles upon the ark, and placed the ark cover on the ark from above. Shemot 40:20


+ 138 He brought the ark into the Mishkan and placed the screening dividing curtain so that it formed a protective covering before the Ark of the Testimony as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:21


+ 98 He placed the table in the Tent of Meeting on the northern side of the Mishkan, outside the dividing curtain. Shemot 40:21


+ 122 He set upon it an arrangement of bread before the Lord as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:23


+ 173 He placed the menorah in the Tent of Meeting, opposite the table, on the southern side of the Mishkan. Shemot 40:24


+ 103 He kindled the lamps before the Lord as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:25


+ 99 He placed the golden altar in the Tent of Meeting in front of the dividing curtain. Shemot 40:26


+ 120 He made the incense go up in smoke upon it as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:27


+ 100 He placed the screen for the entrance of the Mishkan. Shemot 40:28


+ 118 The altar of the burnt offering he placed in front of the entrance of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting, and he offered up the burnt offering and the meal offering upon it as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:29


+ 127 When they entered the Tent of Meeting and when they approached the altar they would wash as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:32


+ 173 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When a man from among you brings a sacrifice to the Lord; from animals, from cattle or from the flock you shall bring your sacrifice. Vayikra 1:2


+ 124 And he shall cut it into its prescribed sections, with its head and its fat, and the kohen shall arrange them on top of the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar. Vayikra 1:12


+ 142 And if a person brings a meal offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour. He shall pour oil over it and place frankincense upon it. Vayikra 2:1


+ 168 And he shall bring it to Aaron's descendants, the kohanim, and from there, he shall scoop out his fistful of its fine flour and its oil, in addition to all its frankincense. Then, the kohen shall cause its reminder to go up in smoke on the altar; it is a fire offering with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 2:2


+ 149 And what remains of the meal offering shall belong to Aaron and to his descendants; it is holy of holies from the fire offerings of the Lord. Vayikra 2:3


+ 155 And if one brings a meal offering baked in an oven, it shall consist of either unleavened loaves made of fine flour mixed with oil, or unleavened wafers anointed with oil. Vayikra 2:4


+ 143 And if a meal offering on a pan is your sacrifice, it shall be made of fine flour, mixed with oil; it shall be unleavened. Vayikra 2:5


+ 126 Break it into pieces, and you shall then pour oil over it. It is a meal offering. Vayikra 2:6


+ 194 And if your sacrifice is a meal offering made in a deep pot, it shall be made of fine flour with oil. Vayikra 2:7


+ 137 Thus you shall bring the meal offering which shall be made from these types, to the Lord. And he shall bring it to the kohen, and he shall bring it close to the altar. Vayikra 2:8


+ 155 And the kohen shall lift out, from the meal offering, its reminder and cause it to go up in smoke on the altar; it is a fire offering with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 2:9


+ 203 And what remains of the meal offering shall belong to Aaron and his descendants; it is holy of holies from the fire offerings of the Lord. Vayikra 2:10


+ 151 No meal offering that you sacrifice to the Lord shall be made out of anything leavened. For you shall not cause to go up in smoke any leavening or any honey, as a fire offering to the Lord; Vayikra 2:11


+ 158 However, you shall bring them as a first fruit offering to the Lord; nevertheless, they shall not go up on the altar as a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 2:12


+ 159 And you shall salt every one of your meal offering sacrifices with salt, and you shall not omit the salt of your God's covenant from being placed upon your meal offerings. You shall offer salt on all your sacrifices. Vayikra 2:13


+ 166 When you bring a meal offering of the first grains to the Lord, you shall bring your first grain meal offering from barley, as soon as it ripens, parched over the fire, kernels full in their husks, ground into coarse meal. Vayikra 2:14


+ 135 And you shall put oil on it, and place frankincense upon it. It is a meal offering. Vayikra 2:15


+ 145 Then, the kohen shall cause its reminder to go up in smoke, taken from its coarse meal and from its oil, with all its frankincense; it is a fire offering to the Lord. Vayikra 2:16


+ 169 And he shall lean his hand forcefully upon the head of his sacrifice and slaughter it at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. And Aaron's descendants, the kohanim, shall dash the blood upon the altar, around. Vayikra 3:2


+ 117 And if his sacrifice is a goat, he shall bring it before the Lord, Vayikra 3:12


+ 177 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: If a person sins unintentionally by committing one of all the commandments of the Lord, which may not be committed, and he commits part of one of them Vayikra 4:2


+ 135 He shall take out the entire bull to a clean place outside the camp, namely, to the ash depository, and he shall burn it in fire on wood. Thus, it shall be burnt in the ash depository. Vayikra 4:12


+ 114 He shall do to the bull just as he did to the bull of the sin offering thus he shall do to it. Thus the kohen shall make atonement for them the community, and they will be forgiven. Vayikra 4:20


+ 133 And he shall take the bull outside the camp and burn it, just as he burned the first bull. It is a sin offering for the congregation. Vayikra 4:21


+ 145 If a leader of Israel sins and unintentionally commits one of all the commandments of the Lord, which may not be committed, incurring guilt; Vayikra 4:22


+ 113 If his sin that he has committed is made known to him, then he shall bring his offering: an unblemished male goat. Vayikra 4:23


+ 116 And he shall lean his hand forcefully upon the goat's head and slaughter it in the place where he slaughters burnt offerings, before the Lord. It is a sin offering. Vayikra 4:24


+ 124 And the kohen shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger, and place it on the horns of the altar used for burnt offerings. And then he shall pour its blood onto the base of the altar used for burnt offerings. Vayikra 4:25


+ 130 And he shall cause all its fat to go up in smoke on the altar, just like the fat of the peace offering. Thus the kohen shall make atonement for his sin, and he will be forgiven. Vayikra 4:26


+ 145 If one person of the people of the land commits a sin unintentionally, by his committing one of the commandments of the Lord which may not be committed, incurring guilt; Vayikra 4:27


+ 121 If his sin that he committed is made known to him, he shall bring his sacrifice: an unblemished female goat, for his sin that he committed. Vayikra 4:28


+ 117 And he shall lean his hand forcefully on the head of the sin offering, and he shall slaughter the sin offering in the place of the burnt offering. Vayikra 4:29


+ 134 If he brings a sheep for his sin offering, he shall bring an unblemished female. Vayikra 4:32


+ 128 Or if a person touches anything unclean, whether it is the carcass of an unclean wild animal, or the carcass of an unclean domestic animal, or the carcass of an unclean creeping animal, and it was hidden from him, he incurs guilt. Vayikra 5:2


+ 137 He shall bring it to the kohen, and the kohen shall scoop out a fistful as its reminder, and cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, upon the fires of the Lord. It is a sin offering. Vayikra 5:12

+ 103 And they placed the fats on top of the breasts, and he caused the fats to go up in smoke on the altar. Vayikra 9:20


+ 137 And Aaron had already waved the breasts and the right thigh as a wave offering before the Lord, as Moses had commanded. Vayikra 9:21

+ 128 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 21:16


+ 130 Speak to Aaron, saying: Any man among your offspring throughout their generations who has a defect, shall not come near to offer up his God's food. Vayikra 21:17


+ 129 For any man who has a defect should not approach: A blind man or a lame one, or one with a sunken nose or with mismatching limbs; Vayikra 21:18


+ 95 Or a man who has a broken leg or a broken arm; Vayikra 21:19


+ 130 Or one with long eyebrows, or a cataract, or a commingling in his eye; dry lesions or weeping sores, or one with crushed testicles. Vayikra 21:20

+ 135 But he shall not come to the dividing curtain, nor shall he draw near to the altar, for he has a defect, and he shall not desecrate My holy things, for I am the Lord Who sanctifies them. Vayikra 21:23


+ 132 Moses told this to Aaron and his sons, and to all of the children of Israel. Vayikra 21:24


+ 122 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 22:1


+ 135 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, that they shall separate themselves from the holy sacrifices of the children of Israel, which they sanctify to Me, so as not to desecrate My Holy Name. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:2


+ 150 Say to them: Throughout your generations, any man among any of your offspring who, while his defilement is still upon him, comes near to the holy sacrifices that the children of Israel consecrate to the Lord that soul shall be cut off from before me. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:3


+ 141 Any man whatsoever among Aaron's offspring if he has tzara'ath or has had a discharge, he shall not eat of the holy sacrifices, until he cleanses himself. And one who touches anyone who has become unclean by contact with a dead person, or a man from whom semen issued, Vayikra 22:4


+ 124 Or a man who touches any creeping creature through which he becomes unclean or a person through whom he becomes unclean, whatever his uncleanness. Vayikra 22:5

+ 119 When the sun sets, he becomes clean, and afterwards, he may eat of the holy things, for it is his food. Vayikra 22:7


+ 119 He shall not eat a carcass or anything that was torn, thereby becoming unclean through it. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:8


+ 147 They shall keep My charge and not bear a sin by eating it while unclean and thereby die through it since they will have desecrated it. I am the Lord Who sanctifies them. Vayikra 22:9


+ 100 No non kohen may eat holy things; a kohen's resident and his hireling may not eat holy things. Vayikra 22:10


+ 115 And if a kohen acquires a person, an acquisition through his money, he may eat of it, and those born in his house they may eat of his food. Vayikra 22:11


+ 158 And if a kohen's daughter is married to a non kohen, she may no longer eat of the separated holy things. Vayikra 22:12


+ 130 But if the kohen's daughter becomes widowed or divorced, and she has no offspring she may return to her father's household as in her youth and eat of her father's food, but no non kohen may eat of it. Vayikra 22:13


+ 171 And if a man unintentionally eats what is holy, he shall add a fifth of it to it and give the kohen the holy thing. Vayikra 22:14


+ 125 And they shall not desecrate the holy things of the children of Israel, those that they have set aside for the Lord, Vayikra 22:15


+ 126 Thereby bringing upon themselves to bear iniquity and guilt, when they eat their holy things, for I am the Lord Who sanctifies them. Vayikra 22:16


+ 111 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 22:17


+ 153 Speak to Aaron and to his sons and to all the children of Israel and say to them: Any man whatsoever from the house of Israel or from the strangers among Israel who offers up his sacrifice for any of their vows or for any of their donations that they may offer up to the Lord as a burnt offering. Vayikra 22:18


+ 118 To be favorable for you, it shall be an unblemished, male, from cattle, from sheep, or from goats. Vayikra 22:19


+ 115 Any animal that has a blemish, you shall not offer up, for it will not be favorable for you. Vayikra 22:20


+ 134 And if a man offers up a peace offering to the Lord for declaring a vow or as a donation from cattle or from the flock to be accepted, it shall be unblemished. It shall not have any defect in it. Vayikra 22:21


+ 130 An animal that has blindness, or a broken bone, or a split eyelid or lip, or one that has warts, or dry lesions or weeping sores you shall not offer up any of these to the Lord, nor shall you place any of these as a fire offering upon the altar to the Lord. Vayikra 22:22


+ 158 As for an ox or sheep that has mismatching limbs or uncloven hooves you may make it into a donation, but as a vow, it will not be accepted. Vayikra 22:23


+ 147 Any animal whose testicles were squashed, crushed, pulled out, or severed, you shall not offer up to the Lord, and in your land, you shall not do it. Vayikra 22:24


+ 139 And from the hand of a gentile you shall not offer up as food for your God any of these blemished animals, for their injury is upon them, there is a defect on them; they will not be accepted for you. Vayikra 22:25


+ 108 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 22:26


+ 146 When an ox or a sheep or a goat is born, it shall remain under its mother for seven days, and from the eighth day onwards, it shall be accepted as a sacrifice for a fire offering to the Lord. Vayikra 22:27


+ 102 An ox or sheep you shall not slaughter it and its offspring in one day. Vayikra 22:28


+ 125 And when you slaughter a thanksgiving offering to the Lord, you shall slaughter it so that it should be acceptable for you. Vayikra 22:29


+ 104 It shall be eaten on that day; do not leave it over until morning. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:30


+ 100 You shall keep My commandments and perform them. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:31


+ 137 You shall not desecrate My Holy Name. I shall be sanctified amidst the children of Israel. I am the Lord Who sanctifies you, Vayikra 22:32


+ 108 Who took you out of the land of Egypt, to be a God to you. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:33


+ 116 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 23:1


+ 147 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: The Lord's appointed holy days that you shall designate as holy occasions. These are My appointed holy days: Vayikra 23:2


+ 140 For six days, work may be performed, but on the seventh day, it is a complete rest day, a holy occasion; you shall not perform any work. It is a Sabbath to the Lord in all your dwelling places. Vayikra 23:3


+ 136 These are the Lord's appointed holy days, holy occasions, which you shall designate in their appointed time: Vayikra 23:4

+ 132 And you shall bring a fire offering to the Lord for a seven day period. On the seventh day, there shall be a holy occasion; you shall not perform any work of labor. Vayikra 23:8


+ 96 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 23:9


+ 142 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you come to the Land which I am giving you, and you reap its harvest, you shall bring to the kohen an omer of the beginning of your reaping. Vayikra 23:10


+ 107 And he shall wave the omer before the Lord so that it will be acceptable for you; the kohen shall wave it on the day after the rest day. Vayikra 23:11


+ 192 And on the day of your waving the omer, you shall offer up an unblemished lamb in its first year as a burnt offering to the Lord; Vayikra 23:12


+ 135 Its meal offering shall be two tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, a fire offering to the Lord as a spirit of satisfaction. And its libation shall be a quarter of a hin of wine. Vayikra 23:13


+ 125 You shall not eat bread or flour made from parched grain or fresh grain, until this very day, until you bring your God's sacrifice. This is an eternal statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. Vayikra 23:14


+ 121 And you shall count for yourselves, from the morrow of the rest day from the day you bring the omer as a wave offering seven weeks; they shall be complete. Vayikra 23:15


+ 123 You shall count until the day after the seventh week, namely, the fiftieth day, on which you shall bring a new meal offering to the Lord. Vayikra 23:16

+ 115 And you shall designate on this very day a holy occasion it shall be for you; you shall not perform any work of labor. This is an eternal statute in all your dwelling places throughout your generations. Vayikra 23:21


+ 138 When you reap the harvest of your Land, you shall not completely remove the corner of your field during your harvesting, and you shall not gather up the gleanings of your harvest. Rather, you shall leave these for the poor person and for the stranger. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 23:22


+ 104 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 23:23


+ 160 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: In the seventh month, on the first of the month, it shall be a Sabbath for you, a remembrance of Israel through the shofar blast a holy occasion. Vayikra 23:24

+ 107 You shall not perform any work on that very day, for it is a day of atonement, for you to gain atonement before the Lord, your God. Vayikra 23:28


+ 105 For any person who will not be afflicted on that very day, shall be cut off from its people. Vayikra 23:29

+ 157 For a seven day period you shall live in booths. Every resident among the Israelites shall live in booths, Vayikra 23:42


+ 133 In order that your ensuing generations should know that I had the children of Israel live in booths when I took them out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 23:43


+ 147 And Moses told the children of Israel these laws of the Lord's appointed holy days. Vayikra 23:44


+ 116 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 24:1


+ 140 Command the children of Israel, and they shall take to you pure olive oil, crushed for lighting, to kindle the lamps continually. Vayikra 24:2


+ 131 Outside the dividing curtain of the testimony in the Tent of Meeting, Aaron shall set it up before the Lord from evening to morning continually. This shall be an eternal statute for your generations. Vayikra 24:3


+ 105 Upon the pure menorah, he shall set up the lamps, before the Lord, continually. Vayikra 24:4


+ 189 And you shall take fine flour and bake it into twelve loaves. Each loaf shall be made from two tenths of an ephah of flour. Vayikra 24:5


+ 106 And you place them in two stacks, six in each stack, upon the pure table, before the Lord. Vayikra 24:6


+ 199 And you shall place pure frankincense alongside each stack, and it shall be a reminder for the bread, a fire offering to the Lord. Vayikra 24:7


+ 121 Each and every Sabbath day, he shall set it up before the Lord to be there continuously, from the children of Israel an eternal covenant. Vayikra 24:8


+ 134 And it shall belong to Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in a holy place, for it is holy of holies for him, among the fire offerings of the Lord, an eternal statute. Vayikra 24:9


+ 121 Now, the son of an Israelite woman and he was the son of an Egyptian man went out among the children of Israel, and they quarreled in the camp this son of the Israelite woman, and an Israelite man. Vayikra 24:10


+ 144 And the son of the Israelite woman pronounced the Divine Name and cursed. So they brought him to Moses. His mother's name was Shelomith the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan. Vayikra 24:11


+ 126 They placed him in the guardhouse, until his sentence would be specified to them by the word of the Lord. Vayikra 24:12


+ 117 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 24:13


+ 110 Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and all who heard his blasphemy shall lean their hands on his head. And the entire community shall stone him. Vayikra 24:14


+ 106 And to the children of Israel, you shall speak, saying: Any man who blasphemes his God shall bear his sin. Vayikra 24:15


+ 141 And one who blasphemously pronounces the Name of the Lord, shall be put to death; the entire community shall stone him; convert and resident alike if he pronounces the Divine Name, he shall be put to death. Vayikra 24:16


+ 110 And if a man strikes down any human being he shall be put to death. Vayikra 24:17


+ 104 And one who slays an animal shall pay for it the value of a life for the life he took. Vayikra 24:18


+ 126 And a man who inflicts an injury upon his fellow man just as he did, so shall be done to him namely, Vayikra 24:19


+ 108 Fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. Just as he inflicted an injury upon a person, so shall it be inflicted upon him. Vayikra 24:20


+ 114 And one who injures an animal shall pay for it. And one who strikes a person shall be put to death. Vayikra 24:21


+ 117 One law shall be exacted for you, convert and resident alike, for I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 24:22


+ 132 And Moses told all this to the children of Israel. So they took the blasphemer outside the camp and stoned him, and the children of Israel did just as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 24:23


+ 103 And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, Vayikra 25:1


+ 124 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them: When you come to the land that I am giving you, the land shall rest a Sabbath to the Lord. Vayikra 25:2


+ 140 You may sow your field for six years, and for six years you may prune your vineyard, and gather in its produce, Vayikra 25:3


+ 124 But in the seventh year, the land shall have a complete rest a Sabbath to the Lord; you shall not sow your field, nor shall you prune your vineyard. Vayikra 25:4


+ 137 You shall not reap the aftergrowth of your harvest, and you shall not pick the grapes you had set aside for yourself, for it shall be a year of rest for the land. Vayikra 25:5


+ 134 And the produce of the Sabbath of the land shall be yours to eat for you, for your male and female slaves, and for your hired worker and resident who live with you, Vayikra 25:6


+ 129 And all of its produce may be eaten also by your domestic animals and by the beasts that are in your land. Vayikra 25:7


+ 122 And you shall count for yourself seven sabbatical years, seven years seven times. And the days of these seven sabbatical years shall amount to forty nine years for you. Vayikra 25:8


+ 131 You shall proclaim with the shofar blasts, in the seventh month, on the tenth of the month; on the Day of Atonement, you shall sound the shofar throughout your land. Vayikra 25:9


+ 123 And you shall sanctify the fiftieth year, and proclaim freedom for slaves throughout the land for all who live on it. It shall be a Jubilee for you, and you shall return, each man to his property,_ and you shall return, each man to his family. Vayikra 25:10


+ 140 This fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee for you you shall not sow, nor shall you reap its aftergrowth or pick [its grapes] that you had set aside for yourself. Vayikra 25:11


+ 123 For it is Jubilee. It shall be holy for you; you shall eat its produce from the field. Vayikra 25:12


+ 123 During this Jubilee year, you shall return, each man to his property. Vayikra 25:13


+ 128 And when you make a sale to your fellow Jew or make a purchase from the hand of your fellow Jew, you shall not wrong one another. Vayikra 25:14


+ 131 According to the number of years after the Jubilee, you shall purchase from your fellow Jew; according to the number of years of crops, he shall sell to you. Vayikra 25:15


+ 131 The more the remaining years, you shall increase its purchase price, and the fewer the remaining years, you shall decrease its purchase price, because he is selling you a number of crops. Vayikra 25:16


+ 113 And you shall not wrong, one man his fellow Jew, and you shall fear your God, for I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 25:17


+ 150 You shall perform My statutes, keep My ordinances and perform them then you will live on the land securely. Vayikra 25:18


+ 112 And the land will then yield its fruit and you will eat to satiety, and live upon it securely. Vayikra 25:19


+ 121 And if you should say, "What will we eat in the seventh year? We will not sow, and we will not gather in our produce!" Vayikra 25:20


+ 130 Know then, that I will command My blessing for you in the sixth year, and it will yield produce for three years. Vayikra 25:21


+ 195 And you will sow in the eighth year, while still eating from the old crops until the ninth year; until the arrival of its crop, you will eat the old crop. Vayikra 25:22


+ 130 The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land belongs to Me, for you are strangers and temporary residents with Me. Vayikra 25:23


+ 112 Therefore, throughout the land of your possession, you shall give redemption for the land. Vayikra 25:24


+ 130 If your brother becomes destitute and sells some of his inherited property, his redeemer who is related to him shall come forth and redeem his brother's sale. Vayikra 25:25


+ 99 And if a man does not have a redeemer, but he gains enough means to afford its redemption, Vayikra 25:26


+ 108 He shall calculate the years for which the land has been sold, and return the remainder to the man to whom he sold it, and then he may return to his inheritance. Vayikra 25:27


+ 133 But if he cannot afford enough to repay him, his sale shall remain in the possession of the one who has purchased it, until the Jubilee year. And then, in the Jubilee year, it shall go out and revert to his inheritance. Vayikra 25:28


+ 142 And when a man sells a residential house in a walled city, its redemption may take place until the completion of the year of its sale. Its period of redemption shall be a full year. Vayikra 25:29


+ 126 But if it is not redeemed by the end of a complete year, then that house which is in the city that has a wall, shall remain permanently the property of the one who purchased it throughout his generations. It will not leave his possession in the Jubilee. Vayikra 25:30


+ 141 But houses in open cities, which do not have a wall surrounding them, are to be considered as the field of the land. It may have redemption and shall leave the purchaser's possession in the Jubilee. Vayikra 25:31


+ 129 And, regarding the cities of the Levites, the houses of their inherited cities shall forever have a right of redemption for the Levites. Vayikra 25:32


+ 137 And if one purchases from the Levites, whether a house or an inherited city, will leave the possession of the purchaser in the Jubilee, because the houses of the cities of the Levites, are their inherited property amidst the children of Israel. Vayikra 25:33


+ 131 And a field in the open areas of their cities cannot be sold, because it is their eternal inheritance. Vayikra 25:34


+ 123 If your brother becomes destitute and his hand falters beside you, you shall support him whether a convert or a resident, so that he can live with you. Vayikra 25:35


+ 111 You shall not take from him interest or increase, and you shall fear your God, and let your brother live with you. Vayikra 25:36


+ 117 You shall not give him your money with interest, nor shall you give your food with increase. Vayikra 25:37


+ 97 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, to be a God to you. Vayikra 25:38


+ 97 And if your brother becomes destitute with you, and is sold to you, do not work him with slave labor. Vayikra 25:39


+ 104 As an employee or a hired resident, he shall be with you; until the Jubilee year he shall work with you. Vayikra 25:40


+ 100 Then, he shall leave you he, and his children with him, and he shall return to his family and resume the status of his fathers. Vayikra 25:41


+ 120 For they are My servants, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt they shall not be sold as a slave is sold. Vayikra 25:42


+ 96 You shall not work him with rigor, and you shall fear your God. Vayikra 25:43


+ 109 Your male slave or female slave whom you may have from the nations that are around you, from them you may acquire a male slave or a female slave. Vayikra 25:44


+ 122 And also from the children of the residents that live among you, from them you may acquire slaves and from their family that is with you whom they begot in your land, and they shall become your inheritance. Vayikra 25:45


+ 125 You shall hold onto them as an inheritance for your children after you, as acquired property, and may thus have them serve you forever. But as for your brethren, the children of Israel, a man shall not work his brother with rigor. Vayikra 25:46


+ 114 If a resident non Jew gains wealth with you, and your brother becomes destitute with him and is sold to a resident non Jew among you or to an idol of the family of a non Jew. Vayikra 25:47


+ 88 After he is sold, he shall have redemption; one of his brothers shall redeem him. Vayikra 25:48


+ 118 Or his uncle or his cousin shall redeem him, or the closest other relative from his family shall redeem him; or, if he becomes able to afford it, he can be redeemed on his own. Vayikra 25:49


+ 118 He shall calculate with his purchaser the number of years from the year of his being sold to him until the Jubilee year; then, the purchase price shall be divided by the number of years; as the days of a hired worker, he shall be with him. Vayikra 25:50


+ 126 If there are still many years, according to them, he shall return his redemption money out of the money for which he was purchased. Vayikra 25:51


+ 143 But if only a few years remain until the Jubilee year, he shall make the same calculation; according to his years that remain until Jubilee, he shall return the redemption money. Vayikra 25:52


+ 111 He shall be with him as an employee hired year by year; he shall not enslave him with rigor in your sight. Vayikra 25:53


+ 119 And if he is not redeemed through any of these ways, he shall go out in the Jubilee year he and his children with him. Vayikra 25:54


+ 118 For the children of Israel are servants to Me; they are My servants, whom I took out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 25:55


+ 136 You shall not make idols for yourselves, nor shall you set up a statue or a monument for yourselves. And in your land you shall not place a pavement stone on which to prostrate yourselves, for I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 26:1


+ 107 You shall keep My Sabbaths and fear My Sanctuary. I am the Lord. Vayikra 26:2


+ 108 If you follow My statutes and observe My commandments and perform them, Vayikra 26:3


+ 105 I will give your rains in their time, the Land will yield its produce, and the tree of the field will give forth its fruit. Vayikra 26:4


+ 120 Your threshing will last until the vintage, and the vintage will last until the sowing; you will eat your food to satiety, and you will live in security in your land. Vayikra 26:5


+ 134 And I will grant peace in the Land, and you will lie down with no one to frighten you; I will remove wild beasts from the Land, and no army will pass through your land; Vayikra 26:6


+ 113 You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you; Vayikra 26:7


+ 97 Five of you will pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you will pursue ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you. Vayikra 26:8


+ 101 I will turn towards you, and I will make you fruitful and increase you, and I will set up My covenant with you. Vayikra 26:9


+ 98 You will eat very old produce, and you will clear out the old from before the new. Vayikra 26:10


+ 99 And I will place My dwelling in your midst, and My Spirit will not reject you; Vayikra 26:11


+ 98 I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be My people. Vayikra 26:12


+ 109 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt from being slaves to them; and I broke the pegs of your yoke and led you upright. Vayikra 26:13


+ 98 But if you do not listen to Me and do not perform all these commandments, Vayikra 26:14


+ 131 And if you despise My statutes and reject My ordinances, not performing any of My commandments, thereby breaking My covenant Vayikra 26:15


+ 124 Then I too, will do the same to you; I will order upon you shock, consumption, fever, and diseases that cause hopeless longing and depression. You will sow your seed in vain, and your enemies will eat it. Vayikra 26:16


+ 104 I will set My attention against you, and you will be smitten before your enemies. Your enemies will rule over you; you will flee, but no one will be pursuing you. Vayikra 26:17


+ 116 And if, during these, you will not listen to Me, I will add another seven punishments for your sins: Vayikra 26:18


+ 104 I will break the pride of your strength and make your skies like iron and your land like copper. Vayikra 26:19


+ 128 Your strength will be expended in vain; your land will not yield its produce, neither will the tree of the earth give forth its fruit. Vayikra 26:20


+ 113 And if you treat Me as happenstance, and you do not wish to listen to Me, I will add seven punishments corresponding to your sins: Vayikra 26:21


+ 126 I will incite the wild beasts of the field against you, and they will bereave you, utterly destroy your livestock and diminish you, and your roads will become desolate. Vayikra 26:22


+ 102 And if, through these, you will still not be chastised to return to Me, and if you continue to treat Me happenstance, Vayikra 26:23


+ 108 Then I too, will treat you as happenstance. I will again add seven punishments for your sins: Vayikra 26:24


+ 135 I will bring upon you an army that avenges the avenging of a covenant, and you will gather into your cities. I will incite the plague in your midst, and you will be delivered into the enemy's hands, Vayikra 26:25


+ 112 When I break for you the staff of bread, and ten women will bake your bread in one oven, and they will bring back your bread by weight, and you will eat, yet not be satisfied. Vayikra 26:26


+ 154 And if, despite this, you still do not listen to Me, still treating Me as happenstance, Vayikra 26:27


+ 129 I will treat you with a fury of happenstance, adding again seven chastisements for your sins: Vayikra 26:28


+ 109 You will eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters you will eat. Vayikra 26:29


+ 125 I will demolish your edifices and cut down your sun idols; I will make your corpses fall upon the corpses of your idols, and My Spirit will reject you. Vayikra 26:30


+ 119 I will lay your cities waste and make your holy places desolate, and I will not partake of your pleasant fragrances. Vayikra 26:31


+ 97 I will make the Land desolate, so that it will become desolate also of your enemies who live in it. Vayikra 26:32


+ 121 And I will scatter you among the nations, and I will unsheathe the sword after you. Your land will be desolate, and your cities will be laid waste. Vayikra 26:33


+ 145 Then, the land will be appeased regarding its sabbaticals. During all the days that it remains desolate while you are in the land of your enemies, the Land will rest and thus appease its sabbaticals. Vayikra 26:34


+ 120 It will rest during all the days that it remains desolate, whatever it had not rested on your sabbaticals, when you lived upon it. Vayikra 26:35


+ 138 And those of you who survive I will bring fear in their hearts in the lands of their enemies, and the sound of a rustling leaf will pursue them; they will flee as one flees the sword, and they will fall, but there will be no pursuer. Vayikra 26:36


+ 142 Each man will stumble over his brother, fleeing as if from the sword, but without a pursuer. You will not be able to stand up against your enemies. Vayikra 26:37


+ 100 You will become lost among the nations, and the land of your enemies will consume you. Vayikra 26:38


+ 124 And because of their iniquity, those of you who survive will rot away in the lands of your enemies; moreover, they will rot away because the iniquities of their fathers are still within them. Vayikra 26:39


+ 126 They will then confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers their betrayal that they dealt Me, and that they also treated Me as happenstance. Vayikra 26:40


+ 132 Then I too, will treat them as happenstance and bring them back while in the land of their enemies. If then, their clogged heart becomes humbled, then, their sufferings will gain appeasement for their iniquity, Vayikra 26:41


+ 133 And I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and also My covenant with Isaac, and also My covenant with Abraham I will remember. And I will remember the Land, Vayikra 26:42


+ 124 For the Land will be bereft of them, appeasing its sabbaticals when it had been desolate of them, and they will gain appeasement for their iniquity. This was all in retribution for their having despised My ordinances and in retribution for their having rejected My statutes. Vayikra 26:43


+ 124 But despite all this, while they are in the land of their enemies, I will not despise them nor will I reject them to annihilate them, thereby breaking My covenant that is with them, for I am the Lord their God. Vayikra 26:44


+ 100 I will remember for them the covenant made with the ancestors, whom I took out from the land of Egypt before the eyes of the nations, to be a God to them. I am the Lord. Vayikra 26:45


+ 145 These are the statutes, the ordinances, and the laws that the Lord gave between Himself and the children of Israel on Mount Sinai, by the hand of Moses. Vayikra 26:46


+ 100 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 27:1


+ 123 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When a man expresses a vow, pledging the value of lives to the Lord, Vayikra 27:2


+ 129 The fixed value of a male shall be as follows: From twenty years old until sixty years old, the value is fifty silver shekels, according to the holy shekel; Vayikra 27:3


+ 95 And if she is a female, the value is thirty shekels; Vayikra 27:4


+ 106 And if the person is from five years old until twenty years old, the value of a male shall be twenty shekels, while that of a female shall be ten shekels; Vayikra 27:5


+ 116 And if the person is from one month old until five years old, the value of a male shall be five silver shekels, while the value of a female shall be three silver shekels; Vayikra 27:6


+ 112 And if the person is sixty years old or over, if it is a male, the value shall be fifteen shekels, while for a female, it shall be ten shekels. Vayikra 27:7


+ 126 But if he is too poor to pay the valuation amount, he shall stand him up before the kohen, and the kohen shall evaluate him according to how much the one who is vowing his value can afford. Vayikra 27:8


+ 116 Now, if an animal of whose type is fit to be brought as an offering to the Lord, whatever part of it the person donates to the Lord, shall become holy. Vayikra 27:9


+ 131 He shall not exchange it or offer a substitute for it, whether it be a good one for a bad one, or a bad one for a good one. But if he does substitute one animal for another animal, both that one and its replacement shall be holy. Vayikra 27:10


+ 88 And if it is any unclean animal, of whose type shall not be brought as an offering to the Lord, then he shall stand up the animal before the kohen. Vayikra 27:11


+ 111 The kohen shall then evaluate it whether it is good or bad; like the evaluation of the kohen, so shall it be. Vayikra 27:12


+ 77 But if he redeems it, he shall add its fifth to its value. Vayikra 27:13


+ 100 And if a man consecrates his house to be holy to the Lord, the kohen shall evaluate it whether good or bad; as the kohen evaluates it, so shall it remain. Vayikra 27:14


+ 93 But if the one who consecrated it redeems his house, he shall add to it a fifth of its valuation money, and it shall be his. Vayikra 27:15


+ 130 And if a man consecrates some of the field of his inherited property to the Lord, the valuation shall be according to its sowing: an area which requires a chomer of barley seeds at fifty silver shekels. Vayikra 27:16


+ 87 Now, if he consecrates his field from when the Jubilee year has ended, it shall remain at its full valuation. Vayikra 27:17


+ 109 But if he consecrates his field after the Jubilee, the kohen shall calculate the money for him, according to the remaining years until the next Jubilee year, and it shall be deducted from the valuation. Vayikra 27:18


+ 84 If the one who consecrated it redeems the field, he shall add to it a fifth of the valuation money, and it shall be his. Vayikra 27:19


+ 105 But if he does not redeem the field, and if he has sold the field to someone else it may no longer be redeemed. Vayikra 27:20


+ 117 But, when the field leaves in the Jubilee, it shall be holy to the Lord like a field devoted; his inherited property shall belong to the kohen. Vayikra 27:21


+ 90 And if he consecrates to the Lord a field that he had acquired, that is not part of his inherited property, Vayikra 27:22


+ 98 The kohen shall calculate for him the amount of the valuation until the Jubilee year, and he shall give the valuation on that day, holy to the Lord. Vayikra 27:23


+ 100 In the Jubilee year, the field shall return to the one from whom he bought it namely, the one whose inherited land it was. Vayikra 27:24


+ 98 Every valuation shall be made according to the holy shekel, whereby one shekel is the equivalent of twenty gerahs. Vayikra 27:25


+ 114 However, a firstborn animal that must be sacrificed as a firstborn to the Lord no man may consecrate it; whether it be an ox or sheep, it belongs to the Lord. Vayikra 27:26


+ 113 Now, if someone consecrates an unclean animal, he may redeem it by paying the valuation, and he shall add its fifth to it, and if it is not redeemed, it shall be sold for the valuation price. Vayikra 27:27


+ 114 However, anything that a man devotes to the Lord from any of his property whether a person, an animal, or part of his inherited field shall not be sold, nor shall it be redeemed, for all devoted things are holy of holies to the Lord. Vayikra 27:28


+ 102 Any devoting of a person who has been devoted, need not be redeemed for he is to be put to death. Vayikra 27:29


+ 99 Any tithe of the Land, whether it be from the seed of the land or the fruit of the tree it is the Lord's. It is holy to the Lord. Vayikra 27:30


+ 80 And if a man redeems some of his tithe, he shall add its fifth to it. Vayikra 27:31


+ 92 Any tithe of cattle or flock of all that pass under the rod, the tenth shall be holy to the Lord. Vayikra 27:32


+ 122 He shall not inspect a tithed animal for a good or a bad one, nor shall he offer a substitute for it. And if he does replace it, then both that one and its replacement are holy; it cannot be redeemed. Vayikra 27:33


+ 140 These are the commandments that the Lord commanded Moses to tell the children of Israel on Mount Sinai. Vayikra 27:34


+ 146 Take the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, by families following their fathers' houses; a head count of every male according to the number of their names. Bamidbar 1:2


+ 93 For Dan, Ahi'ezer the son of 'Ammishaddai. Bamidbar 1:12

+ 128 However, the Levites were not counted with the rest of the Israelites, as the Lord commanded Moses. Bamidbar 2:33


+ 121 The Israelites did all that the Lord had commanded Moses; they encamped by their divisions, and so did they journey each man with his family, according to his father's house. Bamidbar 2:34


+ 115 These are the names of the sons of Aaron: Nadab the firstborn Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. Bamidbar 3:2

+ 107 From the age of thirty years and upward, until the age of fifty years you shall count them, all who come to join the legion, to perform service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:23


+ 90 This is the service of the Gershonite families to serve and to carry. Bamidbar 4:24


+ 95 They shall carry the curtains of the Mishkan and the Tent of Meeting, its covering and the tachash skin covering overlaid upon it, and the screen for the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:25

+ 109 All the service of the sons of Gershon shall be by the instruction of Aaron and his sons, regarding all their burden and all their service. You shall designate their entire burden as their charge. Bamidbar 4:27


+ 112 This is the service of the families of the sons of Gershon in the Tent of Meeting, and their charge, which was under the supervision of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the kohen. Bamidbar 4:28


+ 89 As for the sons of Merari, you shall count them by their families, according to their fathers' houses. Bamidbar 4:29


+ 126 The pillars of the surrounding courtyard, their sockets, their pegs, and their ropes, all their implements for all the work involved. You shall designate by name the implements charged to them for their burden. Bamidbar 4:32


+ 96 The tally of the families of the sons of Merari, according to their families and their fathers' houses. Bamidbar 4:42


+ 112 Command the children of Israel to banish from the camp all those afflicted with tzara'ath or with a male discharge, and all those unclean through contact with the dead. Bamidbar 5:2


+ 114 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: Should any man's wife go astray and deal treacherously with him, Bamidbar 5:12


+ 115 But as for you, if you have gone astray to another instead of your husband and have become defiled, and another man besides your husband has lain with you... Bamidbar 5:20


+ 127 The kohen shall now adjure the woman with the oath of the curse, and the kohen shall say to the woman, May the Lord make you for a curse and an oath among your people, when the Lord causes your thigh to rupture and your belly to swell. Bamidbar 5:21


+ 94 For these curse bearing waters shall enter your innards, causing the belly to swell and the thigh to rupture, and the woman shall say, "Amen, amen." Bamidbar 5:22


+ 93 Then the kohen shall write these curses on a scroll and erase it in the bitter water. Bamidbar 5:23


+ 92 He shall then give the bitter, curse bearing waters to the woman to drink, and the curse bearing waters shall enter her to become bitter. Bamidbar 5:24


+ 102 The kohen shall take the meal offering of jealousies from the woman's hand, wave the meal offering before the Lord, and bring it to the altar. Bamidbar 5:25


+ 100 The kohen shall scoop out from the meal offering its reminder and burn it upon the altar, and then he shall give the woman the water to drink. Bamidbar 5:26


+ 120 He shall make her drink the water, and it shall be that, if she had been defiled and was unfaithful to her husband, the curse bearing waters shall enter her to become bitter, and her belly will swell, and her thigh will rupture. The woman will be a curse among her people. Bamidbar 5:27


+ 104 But if the woman had not become defiled and she is clean, she shall be exempted and bear seed. Bamidbar 5:28


+ 90 This is the law of jealousies when a woman goes astray to someone other than her husband and is defiled, Bamidbar 5:29


+ 108 Speak to the children of Israel, and you shall say to them: A man or woman who sets himself apart by making a nazirite vow to abstain for the sake of the Lord. Bamidbar 6:2


+ 124 He shall consecrate to the Lord the period of his abstinence and bring a lamb in its first year as a guilt offering; the previous days shall be canceled because his naziriteship has been defiled. Bamidbar 6:12


+ 107 The kohen shall wave them as a waving before the Lord; it is consecrated to the kohen, along with the breast of the waving and the thigh of the uplifting. After this, the nazirite may drink wine. Bamidbar 6:20


+ 120 This is the law of a nazirite who makes a vow: his offering to the Lord for his naziriteship is in addition to what is within his means. According to the vow that he vows, so shall he do, in addition to the law of his naziriteship. Bamidbar 6:21


+ 108 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 6:22


+ 94 Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying: This is how you shall bless the children of Israel, saying to them: Bamidbar 6:23


+ 99 May the Lord bless you and watch over you. Bamidbar 6:24


+ 93 May the Lord cause His countenance to shine to you and favor you. Bamidbar 6:25


+ 81 May the Lord raise His countenance toward you and grant you peace. Bamidbar 6:26


+ 97 They shall bestow My Name upon the children of Israel, so that I will bless them. Bamidbar 6:27


+ 126 The chieftains of Israel, the heads of their fathers' houses, presented their offerings. They were the leaders of the tribes. They were the ones who were present during the counting, Bamidbar 7:2


+ 107 The one who brought his offering on the first day was Nahshon the son of Amminadab of the tribe of Judah. Bamidbar 7:12


+ 100 One spoon weighing ten shekels of gold filled with incense. Bamidbar 7:20


+ 94 One young bull, one ram and one lamb in its first year for a burnt offering. Bamidbar 7:21


+ 98 One young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 7:22


+ 102 And for the peace offering: two oxen, five rams, five he goats, five lambs in their first year; this was the offering of Nethanel the son of Zu'ar. Bamidbar 7:23


+ 90 On the third day, the chieftain was of the sons of Zebulun, Eliab the son of Helon. Bamidbar 7:24


+ 135 His offering was one silver bowl weighing one hundred and thirty shekels, one silver sprinkling basin weighing seventy shekels according to the holy shekel, both filled with fine flour mixed with olive oil for a meal offering. Bamidbar 7:25


+ 96 One spoon weighing ten shekels of gold filled with incense. Bamidbar 7:26


+ 95 One young bull, one ram and one lamb in its first year for a burnt offering. Bamidbar 7:27


+ 99 One young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 7:28


+ 98 And for the peace offering: two oxen, five rams, five he goats, five lambs in their first year; this was the offering of Eliab the son of Helon. Bamidbar 7:29


+ 91 One spoon [weighing] ten [shekels] of gold filled with incense. Bamidbar 7:32


+ 97 On the sixth day, the chieftain was of the sons of Gad, Eliasaph the son of De'uel. Bamidbar 7:42


+ 95 One young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 7:52


+ 104 One spoon weighing ten shekels of gold filled with incense. Bamidbar 7:62


+ 85 On the eleventh day, the chieftain was of the sons of Asher, Pag'iel the son of Ochran. Bamidbar 7:72


+ 89 One young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 7:82


+ 107 Speak to Aaron and say to him: "When you light the lamps, the seven lamps shall cast their light toward the face of the menorah." Bamidbar 8:2


+ 113 The Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, and make one as a sin offering and one as a burnt offering to the Lord, to atone for the Levites. Bamidbar 8:12


+ 110 So Moses, Aaron, and the entire congregation of Israel did this to the Levites; the children of Israel did in accordance with all that the Lord had instructed Moses regarding the Levites. Bamidbar 8:20


+ 100 The Levites cleansed themselves and washed their clothes. Then Aaron lifted them as a waving before the Lord, and Aaron atoned for them to cleanse them. Bamidbar 8:21


+ 97 After that, the Levites came to perform the service in the Tent of Meeting before Aaron and before his sons; they did to them just as the Lord had commanded Moses regarding the Levites. Bamidbar 8:22


+ 89 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 8:23


+ 124 This is the rule concerning the Levites: From the age of twenty five years and upwards, he shall enter the service to work in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 8:24


+ 87 From the age of fifty he shall retire from the work legion, and do no more work. Bamidbar 8:25


+ 107 He shall minister with his brethren in the Tent of Meeting to keep the charge, but he shall not perform the service; thus shall you do for the Levites regarding their charge. Bamidbar 8:26


+ 114 The children of Israel shall make the Passover sacrifice in its appointed time. Bamidbar 9:2


+ 118 They shall not leave over anything from it until the next morning, and they shall not break any of its bones. They shall make it in accordance with all the statutes connected with the Passover sacrifice. Bamidbar 9:12


+ 107 Sometimes, the cloud remained for several days above the Mishkan; at the Lord's bidding they traveled and at the Lord's bidding they encamped. Bamidbar 9:20


+ 97 Sometimes the cloud remained from evening until morning, and when the cloud departed in the morning, they traveled. Or, the cloud remained for a day and a night, and when the cloud departed, they traveled. Bamidbar 9:21


+ 109 Whether it was for two days, a month or a year, that the cloud lingered to hover over the Mishkan, the children of Israel would encamp and not travel, and when it departed, they traveled. Bamidbar 9:22


+ 94 At the Lord's bidding they would encamp, and at the Lord's bidding they would travel; they kept the charge of the Lord by the word of the Lord through Moses. Bamidbar 9:23


+ 120 Make yourself two silver trumpets; you shall make them from a beaten form; they shall be used by you to summon the congregation and to announce the departure of the camps. Bamidbar 10:2


+ 97 The children of Israel traveled on their journeys from the Sinai desert, and the cloud settled in the desert of Paran. Bamidbar 10:12


+ 96 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Gad was Eliasaph the son of Reuel. Bamidbar 10:20


+ 84 The Kohathithes, who carried the holy equipment set out, and they had erected the Tabernacle before they had arrived. Bamidbar 10:21


+ 96 Then the banner of the camp of Ephraim set out, according to its legions. Heading its legion was Elishama the son of Amihud. Bamidbar 10:22


+ 90 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Menasseh was Gamliel the son of Pedahzur. Bamidbar 10:23


+ 95 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Benjamin was Abidan the son of Gidoni. Bamidbar 10:24


+ 94 Then the banner of the camp of Dan set out, the collector for all the other camps, according to its legions. Heading its legion was Achiezer the son of Amishaddai. Bamidbar 10:25


+ 101 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Asher was Pagiel the son of Ocran. Bamidbar 10:26


+ 78 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Naphtali was Ahira the son of Enon. Bamidbar 10:27


+ 99 These are the travels of the children of Israel according to their legions, and then they traveled. Bamidbar 10:28


+ 125 Then Moses said to Hobab the son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses's father-in-law, We are traveling to the place about which the Lord said, I will give it to you. Come with us and we will be good to you, for the Lord has spoken of good fortune for Israel. Bamidbar 10:29


+ 86 And if you go with us, then we will bestow on you the good which God grants us. Bamidbar 10:32


+ 104 The people cried out to Moses; Moses prayed to the Lord, and the fire died down. Bamidbar 11:2


+ 110 Did I conceive this entire people? Did I give birth to them, that You say to me, Carry them in your bosom as the nurse carries the suckling, to the Land You promised their forefathers? Bamidbar 11:12


+ 87 Where can I get meat to give all these people? For they are crying on me, saying, Give us meat to eat. Bamidbar 11:12


+ 142 But even for a full month until it comes out your nose and nauseates you. Because you have despised the Lord Who is among you, and you cried before Him, saying, Why did we ever leave Egypt? Bamidbar 11:20


+ 110 Moses said, Six hundred thousand people on foot are the people in whose midst I am, and You say, I will give them meat, and they will eat it for a full month? Bamidbar 11:21


+ 102 If sheep and cattle were slaughtered for them, would it suffice for them? If all the fish of the sea were gathered for them, would it suffice for them? Bamidbar 11:22


+ 113 Then the Lord said to Moses, Is My power limited? Now you will see if My word comes true for you or not! Bamidbar 11:23


+ 101 Moses went out and told the people what the Lord had said, and he assembled seventy men of the elders of the people, and stood them around the Tent. Bamidbar 11:24


+ 134 The Lord descended in a cloud and spoke to him, and He increased some of the spirit that was on him and bestowed it on the seventy elders. And when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, but they did not continue. Bamidbar 11:25


+ 124 Now two men remained in the camp; the name of one was Eldad and the name of the second was Medad, and the spirit rested upon them. They were among those written, but they did not go out to the tent, but prophesied in the camp. Bamidbar 11:26


+ 112 The lad ran and told Moses, saying, Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp! Bamidbar 11:27


+ 118 Joshua the son of Nun, Moses servant from his youth, answered and said, Moses, my master, imprison them! Bamidbar 11:28


+ 117 Moses said to him, Are you zealous for my sake? If only all the Lord's people were prophets, that the Lord would bestow His spirit upon them! Bamidbar 11:29


+ 104 The people rose up all that day and all night and the next day and gathered the quails. Even the one who gathered the least collected ten heaps. They spread them around the camp in piles. Bamidbar 11:32


+ 90 Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses regarding the Cushite woman he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman. Bamidbar 12:1


+ 94 They said, Has the Lord spoken only to Moses? Hasn't He spoken to us too? And the Lord heard. Bamidbar 12:2


+ 95 Now this man Moses was exceedingly humble, more so than any person on the face of the earth. Bamidbar 12:3


+ 92 The Lord suddenly said to Moses, Aaron and Miriam, Go out, all three of you, to the Tent of Meeting! And all three went out. Bamidbar 12:4


+ 106 The Lord descended in a pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance of the Tent. He called to Aaron and Miriam, and they both went out. Bamidbar 12:5


+ 108 He said, "Please listen to My words. If there be prophets among you, I the Lord will make Myself known to him in a vision; I will speak to him in a dream. Bamidbar 12:6


+ 101 Not so is My servant Moses; he is faithful throughout My house. Bamidbar 12:7


+ 115 With him I speak mouth to mouth; in a vision and not in riddles, and he beholds the image of the Lord. So why were you not afraid to speak against My servant Moses ? Bamidbar 12:8


+ 83 The wrath of the Lord flared against them and He left. Bamidbar 12:9


+ 110 The cloud departed from above the Tent, and behold, Miriam was afflicted with tzara'ath, as white as snow. Then Aaron turned to Miriam and behold, she was afflicted with tzara'ath. Bamidbar 12:10


+ 110 Aaron said to Moses, Please, master, do not put sin upon us for acting foolishly and for sinning. Bamidbar 12:11


+ 90 Let her not be like the dead, which comes out of his mother's womb with half his flesh consumed! Bamidbar 12:12


+ 104 Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, I beseech you, God, please heal her. Bamidbar 12:14


+ 133 The Lord replied to Moses, If her father were to spit in her face, would she not be humiliated for seven days? She shall be confined for seven days outside the camp, and afterwards she may enter. Bamidbar 12:15


+ 95 So Miriam was confined outside the camp for seven days, and the people did not travel until Miriam had entered. Bamidbar 12:15


+ 94 Then the people departed from Hazeroth, and they camped in the desert of Paran. Bamidbar 12:16


+ 110 Send out for yourself men who will scout the Land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel. You shall send one man each for his father's tribe; each one shall be a chieftain in their midst. Bamidbar 13:2


+ 108 For the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli. Bamidbar 13:12


+ 113 What is the soil like is it fat or lean? Are there any trees in it or not? You shall be courageous and take from the fruit of the land." It was the season when the first grapes begin to ripen. Bamidbar 13:20


+ 78 So they went up and explored the land, from the desert of Zin until Rehov, at the entrance to Hamath. Bamidbar 13:21


+ 97 They went up in, the south, and he came to Hebron, and there were Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the descendants of the giant. Now Hebron had been built seven years before Zoan of Egypt. Bamidbar 13:22


+ 118 They came to the Valley of Eshkol and they cut a branch with a cluster of grapes. They carried it on a pole between two [people] and [they also took] some pomegranates and figs. Bamidbar 13:23


+ 103 They called that place the Valley of Eshkol because of the cluster [eshkol] the children of Israel cut from there. Bamidbar 13:24


+ 89 They returned from scouting the Land at the end of forty days. Bamidbar 13:25


+ 128 They went, and they came to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the desert of Paran, to Kadesh. They brought them back a report, as well as to the entire congregation, and they showed them the fruit of the land. Bamidbar 13:26


+ 102 They told him and said, "We came to the land to which you sent us, and it is flowing with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. Bamidbar 13:27


+ 110 However, the people who inhabit the land are mighty, and the cities are extremely huge and fortified, and there we saw even the offspring of the giant. Bamidbar 13:28


+ 126 The Amalekites dwell in the south land, while the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountainous region. The Canaanites dwell on the coast and alongside the Jordan." Bamidbar 13:29


+ 119 They spread an evil report about the land which they had scouted, telling the children of Israel, The land we passed through to explore is a land that consumes its inhabitants, and all the people we saw in it are men of stature. Bamidbar 13:32


+ 127 All the children of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron, and the entire congregation said, "If only we had died in the land of Egypt, or if only we had died in this desert. Bamidbar 14:2


+ 94 I will strike them with a plague and annihilate them; then I will make you into a nation, greater and stronger than they. Bamidbar 14:12


+ 104 And the Lord said, I have forgiven them in accordance with your word. Bamidbar 14:21


+ 85 However, as surely as I live, and as the glory of the Lord fills the earth... Bamidbar 14:22


+ 111 That all the people who perceived My glory, and the signs that I performed in Egypt and in the desert, yet they have tested me these ten times and not listened to My voice, Bamidbar 13:22


+ 87 If they will see the Land that I swore to their fathers, and all who provoked Me will not see it. Bamidbar 13:23


+ 120 But as for My servant Caleb, since he was possessed by another spirit, and he followed Me, I will bring him to the land to which he came, and his descendants will drive its inhabitants out. Bamidbar 13:24


+ 93 The Amalekites and the Canaanites dwell in the valley. Tomorrow, turn back and journey into the desert toward the Red Sea." Bamidbar 13:25


+ 92 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, Bamidbar 13:26


+ 129 How much longer will this evil congregation who are causing to complain against Me exist? The complaints of the children of Israel which they caused them to complain against Me, I have heard. Bamidbar 13:27


+ 109 Say to them, As I live, says the Lord, if not as you have spoken in My ears, so will I do to you. Bamidbar 13:28


+ 113 In this desert, your corpses shall fall; your entire number, all those from the age of twenty and up, who were counted, because you complained against Me. Bamidbar 13:29


+ 86 But as for you, your corpses shall fall in this desert. Bamidbar 13:32


+ 91 Do not go up, for the Lord is not among you, so that you will not be beaten by your enemies. Bamidbar 14:42


+ 91 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you arrive in the Land of your dwelling place, which I am giving you, Bamidbar 15:2


+ 87 In accordance with the number you offer up, so shall you present for each one, according to their numbers. Bamidbar 15:12


+ 81 The first portion of your dough, you shall separate a loaf for a gift; as in the case of the gift of the threshing floor, so shall you separate it. Bamidbar 15:20


+ 90 From the first portion of your dough you shall give a gift to the Lord in all your generations. Bamidbar 15:21


+ 95 And if you should err and not fulfill all these commandments, which the Lord spoke to Moses. Bamidbar 15:22


+ 71 All that the Lord commanded you through Moses, from the day on which the Lord commanded and from then on, for all generations. Bamidbar 15:23


+ 98 If because of the eyes of the congregation it was committed inadvertently, the entire congregation shall prepare a young bull as a burnt offering for a pleasing fragrance for the Lord, with its prescribed meal offering and libation, and one young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 15:24


+ 79 The kohen shall atone on behalf of the entire congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them, for it was an error, and they have brought their offering as a fire offering to the Lord and their sin offering before the Lord because of their error. Bamidbar 15:25


+ 102 The entire congregation of the children of Israel and the proselyte who resides with them shall be forgiven, for all the people were in error. Bamidbar 15:26


+ 73 But if an individual sins inadvertently, he shall offer up a she goat in its first year as a sin offering. Bamidbar 15:27


+ 75 And the kohen shall atone for the erring soul which sinned inadvertently before the Lord, so as to atone on his behalf, and it shall be forgiven him. Bamidbar 15:28


+ 101 One law shall apply to anyone who sins inadvertently from the native born of the children of Israel and the proselyte who resides among them. Bamidbar 15:29


+ 111 They confronted Moses together with two hundred and fifty men from the children of Israel, chieftains of the congregation, representatives of the assembly, men of repute. Bamidbar 16:2


+ 97 Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, but they said, "We will not go up. Bamidbar 16:12


+ 79 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron saying, Bamidbar 16:21


+ 89 Dissociate yourselves from this congregation, and I will consume them in an instant. Bamidbar 16:22


+ 99 They fell on their faces and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, if one man sins, shall You be angry with the whole congregation? Bamidbar 16:22


+ 94 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 16:23


+ 94 Speak to the congregation saying, Withdraw from the dwelling of Korah, Dathan and Abiram. Bamidbar 16:24


+ 93 Moses arose and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel followed him. Bamidbar 16:25


+ 96 He spoke to the congregation saying, Please get away from the tents of these wicked men, and do not touch anything of theirs, lest you perish because of all their sins. Bamidbar 16:26


+ 101 So they withdrew from around the dwelling of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, and Dathan and Abiram went out standing upright at the entrance of their tents together with their wives, their children, and their infants. Bamidbar 16:27


+ 90 Moses said, With this you shall know that the Lord sent me to do all these deeds, for I did not devise them myself. Bamidbar 16:28


+ 79 If these men die as all men die and the fate of all men will be visited upon them, then the Lord has not sent me. Bamidbar 16:29


+ 98 The earth beneath them opened its mouth and swallowed them and their houses, and all the men who were with Korah and all the property. Bamidbar 16:32


+ 96 Say to Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen that he should pick up the censers from the burned area but throw the fire away, because they have become sanctified, Bamidbar 17:2


+ 106 Aaron took it, just as Moses had said, and he ran into the midst of the assembly, and behold, the plague had begun among the people. He placed the incense on it and atoned for the people. Bamidbar 17:12


+ 87 The staff of the man whom I will choose will blossom, and I will calm down turning away from Myself the complaints of the children of Israel which they are complaining against you. Bamidbar 17:20


+ 115 Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and all their chieftains gave him a staff for each chieftain according to their fathers' houses, a total of twelve staffs, and Aaron's staff was amidst their staffs. Bamidbar 17:21


+ 71 Moses placed the staffs before the Lord in the Tent of the Testimony. Bamidbar 17:22


+ 133 And on the following day Moses came to the Tent of Testimony, and behold, Aaron's staff for the house of Levi had blossomed! It gave forth blossoms, sprouted buds, and produced ripe almonds. Bamidbar 17:23


+ 92 Moses took out all the staffs from before the Lord, to the children of Israel; they saw and they took, each man his staff. Bamidbar 17:24


+ 97 The Lord said to Moses: Put Aaron's staff back in front of the Testimony as a keepsake and a sign for rebellious ones. Then their complaints against Me will end and they will not die. Bamidbar 17:25


+ 74 Moses did so. He did just as the Lord had commanded him. Bamidbar 17:26


+ 90 The children of Israel spoke to Moses saying, Behold, we are dying, we will perish, we are all lost! Bamidbar 17:27


+ 85 Whoever comes the closest to the Mishkan of the Lord dies! Have we been consigned to die? Bamidbar 17:28


+ 71 Also your brethren, the tribe of Levi, your father's tribe, draw close to you, and they shall join you and minister to you, and you and your sons with you, before the Tent of Testimony. Bamidbar 18:2


+ 82 The choice of the oil and the choice of the wine and grain, the first of which they give to the Lord, to you I have given them. Bamidbar 18:12


+ 84 The Lord said to Aaron, You shall not inherit in their land, and you shall have no portion among them. I am your inheritance and portion among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:20


+ 93 And to the descendants of Levi, I have given all tithes of Israel as an inheritance, in exchange for their service which they perform-the service of the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:21


+ 83 The children of Israel shall therefore no longer approach the Tent of Meeting, lest they bear sin and die. Bamidbar 18:22


+ 106 The Levites shall perform the service of the Tent of Meeting, and they will bear their iniquity; it is an eternal statute for your generations, but among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. Bamidbar 18:23


+ 100 For the tithes of the children of Israel, which they shall set aside for the Lord as a gift, I have given to the Levites as an inheritance. Thus, I have said to them that they shall have no inheritance among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:24


+ 88 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 18:25


+ 114 Speak to the Levites and tell them, "When you take the tithe from the children of Israel which I have given you from them as your inheritance, you shall set aside from it a gift for the Lord, a tithe of the tithe. Bamidbar 18:26


+ 95 Your gift shall be considered for you as grain from the threshing-floor and as the produce of the vat. Bamidbar 18:27


+ 108 So shall you too set aside a gift for the Lord from all the tithes you take from the children of Israel, and you shall give thereof the Lord's gift to Aaron the priest. Bamidbar 18:28


+ 103 From all your gifts, you shall set aside every gift of the Lord, from its choicest portion, that part of it which is to be consecrated. Bamidbar 18:29


+ 104 After you separate the choicest part from it, you shall not bear any sin on account of it, but you shall not profane the sacred offerings of the children of Israel, so that you shall not die. Bamidbar 18:32


+ 116 This is the statute of the Torah which the Lord commanded, saying, Speak to the children of Israel and have them take for you a perfectly red unblemished cow, upon which no yoke was laid. Bamidbar 19:2


+ 87 On the third and seventh days, he shall cleanse himself with it, so that he can become clean. But if he does not sprinkle himself with it on the third and seventh days, he shall not become clean. Bamidbar 19:12


+ 95 If a person becomes unclean and does not cleanse himself, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation, for he has defiled the Sanctuary of the Lord; the sprinkling waters were not sprinkled upon him. He is unclean. Bamidbar 19:20


+ 103 This shall be for them as a perpetual statute, and the one who sprinkles the sprinkling waters shall wash his clothes, and one who touches the sprinkling waters shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:21


+ 86 Whatever the unclean one touches shall become unclean, and anyone touching him shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:22


+ 97 The entire congregation of the children of Israel arrived at the desert of Zin in the first month, and the people settled in Kadesh. Miriam died there and was buried there. Bamidbar 20:1


+ 76 The congregation had no water; so they assembled against Moses and Aaron. Bamidbar 20:2


+ 95 The people quarreled with Moses, and they said, If only we had died with the death of our brothers before the Lord. Bamidbar 20:3


+ 88 Why have you brought the congregation of the Lord to this desert so that we and our livestock should die there? Bamidbar 20:4


+ 100 Why have you taken us out of Egypt to bring us to this evil place; it is not a place for seeds, or for fig trees, grapevines, or pomegranate trees, and there is no water to drink. Bamidbar 20:5


+ 103 Moses and Aaron moved away from the assembly to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and they fell on their faces. Then the glory of the Lord appeared to them. Bamidbar 20:6


+ 78 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 20:7


+ 99 "Take the staff and assemble the congregation, you and your brother Aaron, and speak to the rock in their presence so that it will give forth its water. You shall bring forth water for them from the rock and give the congregation and their livestock to drink." Bamidbar 20:8


+ 87 Moses took the staff from before the Lord as He had commanded him. Bamidbar 20:9


+ 107 Moses and Aaron assembled the congregation in front of the rock, and he said to them, "Now listen, you rebels, can we draw water for you from this rock?" Bamidbar 20:10


+ 116 Moses raised his hand and struck the rock with his staff twice, when an abundance of water gushed forth, and the congregation and their livestock drank. Bamidbar 20:11


+ 112 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, "Since you did not have faith in Me to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly to the Land which I have given them. Bamidbar 20:12


+ 105 These are the waters of dispute Mei Meribah where the children of Israel contended with the Lord, and He was sanctified through them. Bamidbar 20:13


+ 102 Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom: "So says your brother, Israel, 'You know of all the hardship that has befallen us. Bamidbar 20:14


+ 88 Our fathers went down to Egypt, and we sojourned in Egypt for a long time. And the Egyptians mistreated us and our forefathers. Bamidbar 20:15


+ 75 We cried out to the Lord and He heard our voice. He sent an angel, and he took us out of Egypt, and now we are in Kadesh, a city on the edge of your border. Bamidbar 20:16


+ 100 Please let us pass through your land; we will not pass through fields or vineyards, nor will we drink well water. We will walk along the king's road, and we will turn neither to the right nor to the left until we have passed through your territory. Bamidbar 20:17


+ 85 Edom replied to him, "You shall not pass through me, lest I go out towards you with the sword!" Bamidbar 20:18


+ 116 The children of Israel said to him, "We will keep to the highway, and if we drink your water, either I or my cattle, we will pay its price. It is really nothing; I will pass through on foot." Bamidbar 20:19


+ 82 But he said, "You shall not pass through!" and Edom came out toward them with a vast force and with a strong hand. Bamidbar 20:20


+ 90 Edom refused to allow Israel to cross through his territory; so Israel turned away from him. Bamidbar 20:21


+ 75 They traveled from Kadesh, and the entire congregation of the children of Israel arrived at Mount Hor. Bamidbar 20:22


+ 85 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron at Mount Hor, on the border of the land of Edom, saying, Bamidbar 20:23


+ 122 Aaron shall be gathered to his people, for he shall not come to the Land which I have given to the children of Israel, because you defied My word at the waters of dispute Mei Meribah. Bamidbar 20:24


+ 75 Take Aaron and Eleazar his son and ascend Mount Hor. Bamidbar 20:25


+ 95 Strip Aaron of his garments and dress Eleazar his son with them. Then Aaron shall be gathered in to his people and die there. Bamidbar 20:26


+ 94 Moses did as the Lord commanded him. They ascended Mount Hor in the presence of the entire congregation. Bamidbar 20:27


+ 101 Moses then stripped Aaron of his garments and dressed Eleazar his son in them, and Aaron died there on the top of the mountain. Then Moses and Eleazar descended from the mountain. Bamidbar 20:28


+ 91 The whole congregation saw that Aaron had expired, and the entire house of Israel wept for Aaron for thirty days. Bamidbar 20:29


+ 106 The Canaanite king of Arad, who lived in the south, heard that Israel had come by the route of the spies, and he waged war against Israel and took from them a captive. Bamidbar 21:1


+ 81 Israel made a vow to the Lord, and said, "If You deliver this people into my hand, I shall consecrate their cities." Bamidbar 21:2


+ 103 The Lord heard Israel's voice and delivered the Canaanite. He destroyed them and consecrated their cities, and he called the place Hormah. Bamidbar 21:3


+ 102 They journeyed from Mount Hor by way of the Red Sea to circle the land of Edom, and the people became disheartened because of the way. Bamidbar 21:4


+ 95 The people spoke against God and against Moses, "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in this desert, for there is no bread and no water, and we are disgusted with this rotten bread." Bamidbar 21:5


+ 99 The Lord sent against the people the venomous snakes, and they bit the people, and many people of Israel died. Bamidbar 21:6


+ 101 The people came to Moses and said, "We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord that He remove the snakes from us." So Moses prayed on behalf of the people. Bamidbar 21:7


+ 87 The Lord said to Moses, Make yourself a serpent and put it on a pole, and let whoever is bitten look at it and live. Bamidbar 21:8


+ 90 Moses made a copper snake and put it on a pole, and whenever a snake bit a man, he would gaze upon the copper snake and live. Bamidbar 21:9


+ 80 The children of Israel journeyed on and camped in Oboth. Bamidbar 21:10


+ 99 They journeyed from Oboth and camped in the wasteland passes in the wilderness, which faced Moab, toward the rising sun. Bamidbar 21:11


+ 83 From there they journeyed, and they encamped along the stream of Zered. Bamidbar 21:12


+ 100 From there they journeyed, and they encamped on the other side of the Arnon, which was in the desert, extending from the Amorite border, for Arnon was the Moabite border between Moab and the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:13


+ 96 Concerning this it is told in the account of the Wars of the Lord, What He gave at the Sea of Reeds and the streams of Arnon. Bamidbar 21:14


+ 69 And the spilling of the streams that turned to settle at Ar and leaned toward the border of Moab. Bamidbar 21:15


+ 75 From there to the well; that is the well of which the Lord said to Moses, Gather the people, and I will give them water. Bamidbar 21:16


+ 75 Then Israel sang this song: Ascend, O well, sing to it! Bamidbar 21:17


+ 100 A well dug by princes, carved out by nobles of the people, through the lawgiver with their staffs, and from the desert, a gift. Bamidbar 21:18


+ 85 From the gift, to the streams, and from the streams to the heights. Bamidbar 21:19


+ 92 From the heights to the valley in the field of Moab, at the top of the peak, that overlooks the wastelands. Bamidbar 21:20


+ 81 Israel sent messengers to Sihon the king of the Amorites, saying: Bamidbar 21:21


+ 95 "Let me pass through your land. We will not turn into fields or vineyards, nor drink well water. We shall walk along the king's road, until we have passed through your territory." Bamidbar 21:22


+ 95 But Sihon did not permit Israel to pass through his territory, and Sihon gathered all his people and went out to the desert toward Israel. He arrived at Jahaz and fought against Israel. Bamidbar 21:23


+ 97 Israel smote him with the sword, and took possession of his land from Arnon to Jabbok, as far as the children of Ammon, for the border of the children of Ammon was strong. Bamidbar 21:24


+ 99 Israel took all these cities, and the Israelites dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon and all its villages. Bamidbar 21:25


+ 87 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon, king of the Amorites, and he had fought against the first king of Moab, taking all his land from his possession, as far as Arnon. Bamidbar 21:26


+ 92 Concerning this, those who speak in parables say, Come to Heshbon, may it be built and established as the city of Sihon. Bamidbar 21:27


+ 85 For fire went forth from Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon; it consumed Ar of Moab, the masters of the high places of Arnon. Bamidbar 21:28


+ 91 Woe is to you, Moab; you are lost, people of Chemosh. His sons he has given over as refugees and his daughters into captivity, to Sihon, king of the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:29


+ 105 Their kingdom is destroyed from Heshbon; it has been removed from Dibon; we laid them waste as far as Nophah which is near Medeba. Bamidbar 21:30


+ 79 Israel settled in the land of the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:31


+ 90 Moses sent men to spy out Jaazer and they captured its villages, driving out the Amorites who lived there. Bamidbar 21:32


+ 94 Then they turned and headed north toward the Bashan. Og, the king of Bashan, came out toward them with all his people, to wage war at Edrei. Bamidbar 21:33


+ 106 The Lord said to Moses, "Do not fear him, for I have delivered him, his people, and his land into your hand. You shall do to him as you did to Sihon the king of the Amorites who dwells in Heshbon. Bamidbar 21:34


+ 83 They smote him, his sons and all his people, until there was no survivor, and they took possession of his land. Bamidbar 21:35


+ 100 The children of Israel journeyed and encamped in the plains of Moab, across the Jordan from Jericho. Bamidbar 22:1


+ 84 Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites. Bamidbar 22:2


+ 92 Moab became terrified of the people, for they were numerous, and Moab became disgusted because of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 22:3


+ 86 Moab said to the elders of Midian, Now this assembly will eat up everything around us, as the ox eats up the greens of the field. Balak the son of Zippor was king of Moab at that time. Bamidbar 22:4


+ 112 He sent messengers to Balaam the son of Beor, to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of his people, to call for him, saying, A people has come out of Egypt, and behold, they have covered the "eye" of the land, and they are stationed opposite me. Bamidbar 22:5


+ 103 So now, please come and curse this people for me, for they are too powerful for me. Perhaps I will be able to wage war against them and drive them out of the land, for I know that whomever you bless is blessed and whomever you curse is cursed. Bamidbar 22:6


+ 104 So the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian went, with magic charms in their hands, and they came to Balaam and conveyed Balak's message to him. Bamidbar 22:7


+ 104 He said to them, Lodge here for the night, and I will give you an answer when the Lord speaks to me. So the Moabite nobles stayed with Balaam. Bamidbar 22:8


+ 88 God came to Balaam and said, Who are these men with you? Bamidbar 22:9


+ 79 Balaam said to God, Balak the son of Zippor the king of Moab has sent them to me, saying: Bamidbar 22:10


+ 99 Behold the people coming out of Egypt, a nation, has covered the 'eye' of the earth. Come and curse them for me, perhaps I will be able to fight against them and drive them out. Bamidbar 22:11


+ 82 God said to Balaam, You shall not go with them! You shall not curse the people because they are blessed. Bamidbar 22:12


+ 94 When Balaam arose in the morning, he said to Balak's nobles, Return to your country, for the Lord has refused to let me go with you. Bamidbar 22:13


+ 83 Moab's nobles arose and came to Balak and said, Balaam refuses to come with us. Bamidbar 22:14


+ 85 So Balak continued to send dignitaries, more and higher in rank than these. Bamidbar 22:15


+ 82 They came to Balaam and said to him, So said Balak the son of Zippor, Please do not hesitate to come to me. Bamidbar 22:16


+ 94 For I will honor you greatly and do whatever you tell me to do. So please come and curse this people for me. Bamidbar 22:17


+ 109 Balaam answered and said to Balak's servants, Even if Balak gives me a house full of silver and gold, I cannot do anything small or great that would transgress the word of the Lord, my God. Bamidbar 22:18


+ 97 Now, you too, please remain here overnight, and I will know what the Lord will continue to speak with me. Bamidbar 22:19


+ 89 God came to Balaam at night and said to him, If these men have come to call for you, arise and go with them, but the word I speak to you-that you shall do. Bamidbar 22:20


+ 96 In the morning Balaam arose, saddled his she-donkey and went with the Moabite dignitaries. Bamidbar 22:21


+ 91 God's wrath flared because he was going, and an angel of the Lord stationed himself on the road to thwart him, and he was riding on his she-donkey, and his two servants were with him. Bamidbar 22:22


+ 101 The she-donkey saw the angel of the Lord stationed on the road with his sword drawn in his hand; so the she-donkey turned aside from the road and went into a field. Balaam beat the she-donkey to get it back onto the road. Bamidbar 22:23


+ 72 The angel of the Lord stood in a path of the vineyards, with a fence on this side and a fence on that side. Bamidbar 22:24


+ 89 The she-donkey saw the angel of the Lord, and she was pressed against the wall. She pressed Balaam's leg against the wall, and he beat her again. Bamidbar 22:25


+ 85 The angel of the Lord continued going ahead, and he stood in a narrow place, where there was no room to turn right or left. Bamidbar 22:26


+ 89 The she-donkey saw the angel of the Lord, and it crouched down under Balaam. Balaam's anger flared, and he beat the she-donkey with a stick. Bamidbar 22:27


+ 87 The Lord opened the mouth of the she-donkey, and she said to Balaam, "What have I done to you that you have struck me these three times?" Bamidbar 22:28


+ 93 Balaam said to the she-donkey, "For you have humiliated me; if I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now." Bamidbar 22:29


+ 109 The she-donkey said to Balaam, "Am I not your she-donkey on which you have ridden since you first started until now? Have I been accustomed to do this to you?" He said, "No." Bamidbar 22:30


+ 107 The Lord opened Balaam's eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road, with a sword drawn in his hand. He bowed and prostrated himself on his face. Bamidbar 22:31


+ 103 The angel of the Lord said to him, Why have you beaten your she-donkey these three times? Behold, I have came out to thwart you, for the one embarking on the journey has hastened against me. Bamidbar 22:32


+ 90 When the she-donkey saw me, it turned aside these three times. Had she not turned aside before me, now also I would also have killed you and spared her. Bamidbar 22:33


+ 96 Balaam said to the angel of the Lord, I have sinned, for I did not know that you were standing on the road before me. Now, if it displeases you, I will return. Bamidbar 22:34


+ 97 The angel of the Lord said to Balaam, Go with these men, but the word I will speak to you-that you shall speak. So Balaam went with Balak's dignitaries. Bamidbar 22:35


+ 86 Balak heard that Balaam was coming; so he went out toward him to the city of Moab which is on the border of Arnon-at the extreme edge of the border. Bamidbar 22:36


+ 105 Balak said to Balaam, "Did I not send to you to call for you? Why did you not come to me? Am I indeed incapable of honoring you?" Bamidbar 22:37


+ 101 Balaam said to Balak, "Behold I have come to you, do I have any power to say anything? The word God puts into my mouth-that I will speak." Bamidbar 22:38


+ 90 Balaam went with Balak, and they arrived at Kiryath Huzoth a city of streets. Bamidbar 22:39


+ 94 Balak slaughtered cattle and sheep and sent some to Balaam and to the dignitaries with him. Bamidbar 22:40


+ 92 And in the morning Balak took Balaam and led him up to Bamoth Baal, and from there he saw part of the people. Bamidbar 22:41


+ 98 Balaam said to Balak, "Build me seven altars here, and prepare for me seven bulls and seven rams." Bamidbar 23:1


+ 82 Balak did as Balaam had requested, and Balak and Balaam offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. Bamidbar 23:2


+ 85 Balaam said to Balak, "Stand beside your burnt offering, and I will go. Perhaps the Lord will happen to appear to me, and He will show me something that I can tell you," and he went alone. Bamidbar 23:3


+ 91 God chanced upon Balaam, and he said to Him, "I have set up the seven altars, and I have offered up a bull and a ram on each altar." Bamidbar 23:4


+ 92 The Lord placed something into Balaam's mouth, and He said, "Return to Balak and say as follows." Bamidbar 23:5


+ 87 When he returned, Balak was standing next to his burnt offering, he and all the Moabite dignitaries. Bamidbar 23:6


+ 114 He took up his parable and said, Balak the king of Moab has brought me from Aram, from the mountains of the east saying, Come, curse Jacob for me and come invoke wrath against Israel. Bamidbar 23:7


+ 89 How can I curse whom God has not cursed, and how can I invoke wrath if the Lord has not been angered? Bamidbar 23:8


+ 97 For from their beginning, I see them as mountain peaks, and I behold them as hills; it is a nation that will dwell alone, and will not be reckoned among the nations. Bamidbar 23:9


+ 120 Who counted the dust of Jacob or the number of a fourth of or, of the seed of Israel? May my soul die the death of the upright and let my end be like his. Bamidbar 23:10


+ 92 Balak said to Balaam, What have you done to me? I took you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them! Bamidbar 23:11


+ 104 He answered, saying, What the Lord puts into my mouth that I must take care to say. Bamidbar 23:12


+ 108 Balak said to him, Come with me to another place from where you will see them; however, you will see only a part of them, not all of them and curse them for me from there. Bamidbar 23:13


+ 94 He took him to the field of the lookouts, to the peak of the mountain, and he built seven altars and offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. Bamidbar 23:14


+ 93 He said to Balak, Stand here next to your burnt offering and I will be chanced on here. Bamidbar 23:15


+ 103 The Lord chanced upon Balaam and placed something into his mouth. He said, Return to Balak and so you shall speak. Bamidbar 23:16


+ 93 When he came to him, he was standing next to his burnt offering, and the Moabite dignitaries were with him, and Balak said to him, What did the Lord speak? Bamidbar 23:17


+ 88 He took up his parable and said, Arise, Balak, and hear; listen closely to me, son of Zippor. Bamidbar 23:18


+ 84 God is not a man that He should lie, nor is He a mortal that He should relent. Would He say and not do, speak and not fulfill? Bamidbar 23:19


+ 95 I have received an instruction to bless, and He has blessed, and I cannot retract it. Bamidbar 23:20


+ 118 He does not look at evil in Jacob, and has seen no perversity in Israel; the Lord, his God, is with him, and he has the King's friendship. Bamidbar 23:21


+ 76 God has brought them out of Egypt with the strength of His loftiness. Bamidbar 23:22


+ 100 For there is no divination in Jacob and no soothsaying in Israel. In time it will be said to Jacob and Israel, What has God wrought? Bamidbar 23:23


+ 104 Behold, a people that rises like a lioness See Malbim and raises itself like a lion. It does not lie down until it eats its prey and drinks the blood of the slain. Bamidbar 23:24


+ 95 Balak said to Balaam, "You shall neither curse them nor shall you bless them." Bamidbar 23:25


+ 103 Balaam answered and said to Balak, "Have I not spoken to you, saying, 'Everything the Lord speaks that I shall do." Bamidbar 23:26


+ 96 Balak said to Balaam, Come now, I will take you to a different place. Perhaps it will please God, and you will curse them for me from there. Bamidbar 23:27


+ 99 So Balak took Balaam to the peak of Peor, overlooking the wastelands. Bamidbar 23:28


+ 88 Balaam said to Balak, Build me seven altars here and prepare for me seven bulls and seven rams. Bamidbar 23:29


+ 86 Balak did as Balaam told him, and offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. Bamidbar 23:30


+ 132 Balaam saw that it pleased the Lord to bless Israel; so he did not go in search of omens as he had done time and time again, but turned his face toward the desert. Bamidbar 24:1


+ 108 Balaam raised his eyes and saw Israel dwelling according to its tribes, and the spirit of God rested upon him. Bamidbar 24:2


+ 80 He took up his parable and said, The word of Balaam the son of Beor and the word of the man with an open eye. Bamidbar 24:3


+ 86 The word of the one who hears God's sayings, who sees the vision of the Almighty, fallen yet with open eyes. Bamidbar 24:4


+ 112 How goodly are your tents, O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel! Bamidbar 24:5


+ 98 They extend like streams, like gardens by the river, like aloes which the Lord planted, like cedars by the water. Bamidbar 24:6


+ 115 Water will flow from his wells, and his seed shall have abundant water; his king shall be raised over Agag, and his kingship exalted. Bamidbar 24:7


+ 102 God, Who has brought them out of Egypt with the strength of His loftiness He shall consume the nations which are his adversaries, bare their bones and dip His arrows into their blood. Bamidbar 24:8


+ 94 He crouches and lies like a lion and like a lioness; who will dare rouse him? Those who bless you shall be blessed, and those who curse you shall be cursed. Bamidbar 24:9


+ 113 Balak's anger flared against Balaam, and he clapped his hands. Balak said to Balaam, I called you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them these three times. Bamidbar 24:10


+ 82 Now, hurry back to your place. I said I would honor you greatly, but the Lord has deprived you of honor. Bamidbar 24:11


+ 89 Balaam said to Balak, But I even told the messengers you sent to me, saying, Bamidbar 24:12


+ 102 If Balak gives me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot transgress the word of the Lord to do either good or evil on my own; only what the Lord speaks can I speak. Bamidbar 24:13


+ 74 And now, I am going to my people. Come, I will advise you...what this people will do to your people at the end of days. Bamidbar 24:14


+ 82 He took up his parable and said, The word of Balaam, son of Beor, the word of a man with an open eye. Bamidbar 24:15


+ 99 The word of the one who hears God's sayings and perceives the thoughts of the Most High; who sees the vision of the Almighty, fallen yet with open eyes. Bamidbar 24:16


+ 118 I see it, but not now; I behold it, but not soon. A star has gone forth from Jacob, and a staff will arise from Israel which will crush the princes of Moab and uproot all the sons of Seth. Bamidbar 24:17


+ 94 Edom shall be possessed, and Seir shall become the possession of his enemies, and Israel shall triumph. Bamidbar 24:18


+ 88 A ruler shall come out of Jacob, and destroy the remnant of the city. Bamidbar 24:19


+ 99 When he saw Amalek, he took up his parable and said, Amalek was the first of the nations, and his fate shall be everlasting destruction. Bamidbar 24:20


+ 85 When he saw the Kenite, he took up his parable and said, How firm is your dwelling place, and your nest is set in a cliff. Bamidbar 24:21


+ 75 For if Kain is laid waste, how far will Assyria take you captive? Bamidbar 24:22


+ 78 He took up his parable and said, Alas! Who can survive these things from God? Bamidbar 24:23


+ 79 Ships will come from the Kittites and afflict Assyria and afflict those on the other side, but he too will perish forever. Bamidbar 24:24


+ 88 Balaam arose, went, and returned home, and Balak went on his way. Bamidbar 24:25


+ 101 Israel settled in Shittim, and the people began to commit harlotry with the daughters of the Moabites. Bamidbar 25:1


+ 83 They invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods, and the people ate and prostrated themselves to their gods. Bamidbar 25:2


+ 84 Israel became attached to Baal Peor, and the anger of the Lord flared against Israel. Bamidbar 25:3


+ 89 Israel became attached to Baal Peor, and the anger of the Lord flared against Israel. Bamidbar 25:4


+ 100 Moses said to the judges of Israel, Each of you shall kill the men who became attached to Baal Peor. Bamidbar 25:5


+ 92 Then an Israelite man came and brought the Midianite woman to his brethren, before the eyes of Moses and before the eyes of the entire congregation of the children of Israel, while they were weeping at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 25:6


+ 79 Phinehas the son of Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen saw this, arose from the congregation, and took a spear in his hand. Bamidbar 25:7


+ 104 He went after the Israelite man into the chamber and drove it through both of them; the Israelite man, and the woman through her stomach, and the plague ceased from the children of Israel. Bamidbar 25:8


+ 84 Those that died in the plague numbered twenty four thousand. Bamidbar 25:9


+ 80 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 25:10


+ 108 Phinehas the son of Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen has turned My anger away from the children of Israel by his zealously avenging Me among them, so that I did not destroy the children of Israel because of My zeal. Bamidbar 25:11


+ 88 Therefore, say, I hereby give him My covenant of peace. Bamidbar 25:12


+ 102 It shall be for him and for his descendants after him as an eternal covenant of kehunah, because he was zealous for his God and atoned for the children of Israel. Bamidbar 25:13


+ 115 The name of the Israelite man who was killed, who was slain with the Midianite woman was Zimri the son of Salu, the chieftain of the Simeonite paternal house. Bamidbar 25:14


+ 86 And the name of the Midianite woman who was slain was Cozbi the daughter of Zur, a national leader of a paternal house in Midian. Bamidbar 25:15

+ 87 Moses spoke to the Lord, saying: Bamidbar 27:15


+ 72 "Let the Lord, the God of spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation, Bamidbar 27:16


+ 73 Who will go forth before them and come before them, who will lead them out and bring them in, so that the congregation of the Lord will not be like sheep without a shepherd." Bamidbar 27:17


+ 95 The Lord said to Moses, Take for yourself Joshua the son of Nun, a man of spirit, and you shall lay your hand upon him. Bamidbar 27:18


+ 83 And you shall present him before Eleazar the kohen and before the entire congregation, and you shall command him in their presence. Bamidbar 27:19

+ 112 He shall stand before Eleazar the kohen and seek counsel from him through the judgment of the Urim before the Lord. By his word they shall go, and by his word they shall come; he and all Israel with him, and the entire congregation. Bamidbar 27:21

+ 99 He laid his hands upon him and commanded him, in accordance with what the Lord had spoken to Moses. Bamidbar 27:23


+ 80 The Lord spoke to: Moses, saying: Bamidbar 28:1

+ 107 And behold, you have now risen in place of your fathers as a society of sinful people, to add to the wrathful anger of the Lord against Israel. Bamidbar 32:14


+ 89 If you turn away from following Him, He will leave you in the desert again, and you will destroy this entire people. Bamidbar 32:15


+ 97 They approached him and said, We will build sheepfolds for our livestock here and cities for our children. Bamidbar 32:16


+ 105 We will then arm ourselves quickly and go before the children of Israel until we have brought them to their place. Our children will reside in the fortified cities on account of the inhabitants of the land. Bamidbar 32:17


+ 91 We shall not return to our homes until each of the children of Israel has taken possession of his inheritance. Bamidbar 32:18


+ 78 For we will not inherit with them on the other side of the Jordan and beyond, because our inheritance has come to us on the east bank of the Jordan. Bamidbar 32:19


+ 91 Moses said to them, If you do this thing, if you arm yourselves for battle before the Lord, Bamidbar 32:20


+ 79 And your armed force crosses the Jordan before the Lord until He has driven out His enemies before Him, Bamidbar 32:21


+ 95 And the Land will be conquered before the Lord, afterwards you may return, and you shall be freed [of your obligation] from the Lord and from Israel, and this land will become your heritage before the Lord. Bamidbar 32:22


+ 90 But, if you do not do so, behold, you will have sinned against the Lord, and be aware of your sin which will find you. Bamidbar 32:23


+ 96 So build yourselves cities for your children and enclosures for your sheep, and what has proceeded from your mouth you shall do." Bamidbar 32:24


+ 85 The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben spoke to Moses, saying, "Your servants will do as my master commands. Bamidbar 32:25


+ 74 Our children and our wives, our livestock and our cattle will remain there, in the cities of Gilead. Bamidbar 32:26


+ 80 But your servants will cross over all who are armed for combat before the Lord, for the battle, as my master has spoken." Bamidbar 32:27


+ 98 Moses commanded Eleazar the kohen and Joshua the son of Nun and all the paternal heads of the tribes of the children of Israel concerning them. Bamidbar 32:28


+ 95 Moses said to them, "If the descendants of Gad and Reuben cross the Jordan with you armed for battle before the Lord, and the Land is conquered before you, you shall give them the land of Gilead as a heritage. Bamidbar 32:29


+ 68 But if they do not cross over with you armed for battle, they shall receive a possession among you in the land of Canaan." Bamidbar 32:30


+ 78 The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben answered, saying, "We shall do as the Lord has spoken to your servants. Bamidbar 32:31


+ 80 We shall cross over in an armed force before the Lord to the land of Canaan, and then we shall have the possession of our inheritance on this side of the Jordan." Bamidbar 32:32


+ 97 Moses gave the descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben and half the tribe of Manasseh the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon, king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of Og, king of Bashan the land together with its cities within borders, the cities of the surrounding territory. Bamidbar 32:33


+ 63 The descendants of Gad built Dibon, Ataroth, and Aroer. Bamidbar 32:34


+ 68 And Atroth Shophan, Jazer, and Jogbehah. Bamidbar 32:35


+ 76 And Beth Nimrah and Beth Haran, fortified cities and sheepfolds. Bamidbar 32:36


+ 75 The descendants of Reuben built Heshbon, Elealeh, and Kirjathaim. Bamidbar 32:37


+ 75 And Nebo and Baal Meon, their names having been changed, and Sibmah. And they were called with names of the names of the cities they built. Bamidbar 32:38


+ 89 The children of Machir the son of Manasseh went to Gilead and conquered it, driving out the Amorites who were there. Bamidbar 32:39


+ 91 Moses gave Gilead to Machir the son of Manasseh, and he settled in it. Bamidbar 32:40


+ 76 Jair the son of Manasseh went and conquered their hamlets, and called them the hamlets of Jair. Bamidbar 32:41


+ 82 Nobah went and conquered Kenath and its surrounding villages, and called it Nobah, after his name. Bamidbar 32:42


+ 90 Moses recorded their starting points for their journeys according to the word of the Lord, and these were their journeys with their starting points. Bamidbar 33:2


+ 66 They journeyed from the desert of Sin and camped in Dophkah. Bamidbar 33:12


+ 65 They journeyed from Rimmon perez and camped in Libnah. Bamidbar 33:20


+ 73 They journeyed from Libnah and camped in Rissah. Bamidbar 33:21


+ 68 They journeyed from Rissah and camped in Kehelathah. Bamidbar 33:22


+ 68 They journeyed from Kehelathah and camped in Mount Shepher. Bamidbar 33:23


+ 75 They journeyed from Mount Shepher and camped in Haradah. Bamidbar 33:24


+ 78 They journeyed from Haradah and camped in Makheloth. Bamidbar 33:25


+ 71 They journeyed from Makheloth and camped in Tahath. Bamidbar 33:26


+ 59 They journeyed from Tahath and camped in Tarah. Bamidbar 33:27


+ 61 They journeyed from Tarah and camped in Mithkah. Bamidbar 33:28


+ 69 They journeyed from Mithkah and camped in Hashmonah. Bamidbar 33:29


+ 72 They journeyed from Benei jaakan and camped in Hor hagidgad. Bamidbar 33:32


+ 71 They journeyed from Zalmonah and camped in Punon. Bamidbar 33:42


+ 86 You shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their temples, destroy their molten idols, and demolish their high places. Bamidbar 33:52


+ 95 Command the children of Israel and say to them, When you arrive in the land of Canaan, this is the land which shall fall to you as an inheritance, the land of Canaan according to its borders. Bamidbar 34:2


+ 91 The border then continues down along the Jordan, and its ends is the Sea of Salt [the Dead Sea]; this shall be your Land according to its borders around. Bamidbar 34:12


+ 102 For the tribe of the descendants of Simeon, Samuel the son of Ammihud. Bamidbar 34:20


+ 76 For the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon. Bamidbar 34:21


+ 60 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli. Bamidbar 34:22


+ 66 For the descendants of Joseph; the chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod. Bamidbar 34:23


+ 67 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli. Bamidbar 34:22


+ 67 For the descendants of Joseph; the chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod. Bamidbar 34:23


+ 60 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Ephraim, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan. Bamidbar 34:24


+ 78 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Zebulun, Elizaphan the son of Parnach. Bamidbar 34:25


+ 69 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Issachar, Paltiel the son of Azzan. Bamidbar 34:26


+ 69 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Asher, Ahihud the son of Shelomi. Bamidbar 34:27


+ 73 The chieftain of the tribe of the descendants of Naphtali, Pedahel the son of Ammihud. Bamidbar 34:28


+ 85 These are the ones whom the Lord commanded to apportion the inheritance to the children of Israel in the land of Canaan. Bamidbar 34:29


+ 97 Command the children of Israel that they shall give to the Levites from their hereditary possession cities in which to dwell, and you shall give the Levites open spaces around the cities. Bamidbar 35:2


+ 88 These cities shall serve you as a refuge from an avenger, so that the murderer shall not die until he stands in judgment before the congregation. Bamidbar 35:12


+ 87 If, out of hatred, he pushed him, or threw something at him with premeditation, and he died, Bamidbar 35:20


+ 89 Or if he maliciously struck him with his hand and he died, the assailant shall be put to death; he is a murderer; the blood avenger may kill the murderer when he meets him. Bamidbar 35:21


+ 90 But if he pushed him accidentally, without malice, or threw an object at him without premeditation, Bamidbar 35:22


+ 95 Or, with any stone which is deadly, and without seeing [his victim] he threw it down at him and it killed him, but he was not his enemy and bore him no malice Bamidbar 35:23


+ 77 Then the congregation shall judge between the assailant and the blood avenger, on the basis of these judgments. Bamidbar 35:24


+ 82 The congregation shall protect the murderer from the hand of the blood avenger, and the congregation shall return him to the city of refuge to which he had fled, and he shall remain there until the Kohen Gadol, who anointed him with the sacred oil, dies. Bamidbar 35:25


+ 69 But if the murderer goes beyond the border of the city of refuge to which he had fled, Bamidbar 35:26


+ 86 And the blood avenger finds him outside the limits of his city of refuge, and the blood avenger slays the murderer, he has no blood. Bamidbar 35:27


+ 76 For he shall remain in his city of refuge until the Kohen Gadol dies, and only after the Kohen Gadol has died, may the murderer return to the land which is his possession. Bamidbar 35:28


+ 89 These shall be for you a statute of justice for all your generations, in all your dwelling places. Bamidbar 35:29


+ 73 You shall not accept ransom for one who has fled to his city of refuge, to allow him to return to live in the Land, before the kohen has died. Bamidbar 35:32


+ 92 They said, The Lord commanded my master to give the Land as an inheritance through lot to the children of Israel, and our master was commanded by the Lord to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother to his daughters. Bamidbar 36:2


+ 78 They married into the families of the sons of Manasseh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained with the tribe of their father's family. Bamidbar 36:12


+ 105 It is eleven days journey from Horeb by way of Mount Seir to Kadesh Barnea. Devarim 1:2


+ 114 How can I bear your trouble, your burden, and your strife all by myself? Devarim 1:12


+ 90 And I said to you, You have come to the mountain of the Amorites, which the Lord, our God, is giving us. Devarim 1:20


+ 97 Behold, the Lord, your God, has set the land before you; go up and possess it, as the Lord, God of your fathers has spoken to you; you shall neither fear nor be dismayed. Devarim 1:21


+ 144 And all of you approached me and said, Let us send men ahead of us so that they will search out the land for us and bring us back word by which route we shall go up, and to which cities we shall come. Devarim 1:22


+ 115 And the matter pleased me; so I took twelve men from you, one man for each tribe. Devarim 1:23


+ 94 And they turned and went up to the mountain, and they came to the valley of Eshkol and spied it out. Devarim 1:24


+ 99 And they took some of the fruit of the land in their hand[s] and brought it down to us, brought us back word, and said, "The land the Lord, our God, is giving us is good." Devarim 1:25


+ 99 But you did not want to go up, and you rebelled against the commandment of the Lord, your God. Devarim 1:26


+ 113 You murmured in your tents and said, '"Because the Lord hates us, He took us out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand[s] of the Amorites to exterminate us." Devarim 1:27


+ 110 Where shall we go up? Our brothers have discouraged us, saying, A people greater and taller than we; cities great and fortified up to the heavens, and we have even seen the sons of Anakim there. Devarim 1:28


+ 97 And I said to you, Do not be broken or afraid of them. Devarim 1:29


+ 116 But regarding this matter, you do not believe the Lord, your God, Devarim 1:32


+ 95 And the Lord said to me, Say to them, Neither go up nor fight, for I am not among you, lest you be struck down before your enemies. Devarim 1:42


+ 111 Then we turned and journeyed into the desert by way of the Red Sea, as the Lord had spoken to me, and we circled Mount Seir for many days. Devarim 2:1


+ 86 And the Lord spoke to me, saying, Devarim 2:2


+ 96 You have circled this mountain long enough; turn northward. Devarim 2:3


+ 104 And command the people saying, You are about to pass through the boundary of your kinsmen, the children of Esau, who dwell in Seir, and they will be afraid of you. Be very careful. Devarim 2:4


+ 110 You shall not provoke them, for I will not give you any of their land not so much as a foot step, because I have given Mount Seir to Esau for an inheritance. Devarim 2:5


+ 103 You shall buy food from them with money, that you may eat, and also water you shall buy from them with money, that you may drink. Devarim 2:6


+ 105 For the Lord, your God, has blessed you in all the work of your hand; He knows of your walking through this great desert; these forty years that the Lord your God has been with you, you have lacked nothing. Devarim 2:7


+ 117 And we departed from our kinsmen, the children of Esau, who dwelt in Seir, by way of the plain from Elath and from Etzion Geber, and we turned and passed through the way of the desert of Moab. Devarim 2:8


+ 109 And the Lord said to me, Do not distress the Moabites, and do not provoke them to war, for I will not give you any of their land as an inheritance, because I have given Ar to the children of Lot as an inheritance. Devarim 2:9


+ 99 The Emim dwelt there formerly, a great and numerous people, and tall in stature, as the Anakim; Devarim 2:10


+ 100 They also are considered Rephaim, as the Anakim; but the Moabites call them Emim. Devarim 2:11


+ 115 And the Horites formerly dwelt in Seir, and the children of Esau were driving them out, and they exterminated them from before them and dwelt in their stead, just as the Israelites did to the land of their inheritance, which the Lord gave them. Devarim 2:12


+ 84 Now get up and cross the brook of Zered. So we crossed the brook of Zered. Devarim 2:13


+ 114 And the days when we went from Kadesh barnea, until we crossed the brook of Zered, numbered thirty eight years, until all the generation of the men of war expired from the midst of the camp, just as the Lord swore to them. Devarim 2:14


+ 89 Also the hand of the Lord was upon them, to destroy them from the midst of the camp, until they were consumed. Devarim 2:15


+ 89 So it was, when all the men of war finished dying from among the people, Devarim 2:16


+ 81 That the Lord spoke to me saying, Devarim 2:17


+ 94 Today you are crossing the boundary of Moab at Ar. Devarim 2:18


+ 101 And when you approach opposite the children of Ammon, neither distress them, nor provoke them, for I will not give you of the land of the children of Ammon as an inheritance, because I have given it to the children of Lot as an inheritance. Devarim 2:19


+ 109 It too is considered a land of Rephaim; Rephaim dwelt therein formerly, and the Ammonites call them Zamzummim. Devarim 2:20


+ 95 A great, numerous and tall people as the Anakim, but the Lord exterminated them before them, and they drove them out and dwelt in their stead. Devarim 2:21


+ 102 As He did to the children of Esau, who dwell in Seir, when He exterminated the Horites from before them; and they drove them out and dwelt in their stead even to this day. Devarim 2:22


+ 103 But the Avim, who dwell in open cities, up till Gaza -- the Caphtorites, who came forth of Caphtor, exterminated them, and dwelt in their stead. Devarim 2:23


+ 106 Get up, journey, and cross the river Arnon. Behold, I have delivered into your hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: Begin to possess it, and provoke him to war. Devarim 2:24


+ 108 Today I will begin to put the dread of you and the fear of you upon the nations that are under the entire heaven, who will hear reports of you and shake and be in trepidation because of you. Devarim 2:25


+ 98 So I sent messengers from the desert of Kedemoth to Sihon, king of Heshbon, with words of peace, saying, Devarim 2:26


+ 122 Allow me to pass through your land: I will go along by the highway, I will turn neither to the right nor to the left. Devarim 2:27


+ 96 You shall sell me food for money, that I may eat; and give to me water for money, that I may drink; I will only pass through by my feet. Devarim 2:28


+ 100 Just as the children of Esau who dwell in Seir, and the Moabites who dwell in Ar, did for me; until I cross the Jordan to the land which the Lord our God is giving us. Devarim 2:29


+ 116 But Sihon, king of Heshbon, did not wish to let us pass by him, for the Lord your God caused his spirit to be hardened and his heart to be obstinate, in order that He would give him into your hand, as this day. Devarim 2:30


+ 94 And the Lord said to me, Behold I have begun to deliver Sihon and his land before you; begin to drive him out, that you may inherit his land. Devarim 2:31


+ 93 Then Sihon went forth towards us, he and all his people, to war at Jahzah. Devarim 2:32


+ 91 And the Lord our God delivered him to us; and we smote him and his sons and all his people. Devarim 2:33


+ 108 And we conquered all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed every city, the men, women, and the young children; we left over no survivor. Devarim 2:34


+ 115 Only the cattle we took for a prey unto ourselves with the spoil of the cities which we had taken. Devarim 2:35


+ 101 From Aroer which is on the edge of the valley of Arnon, and from the city that is in the valley,even unto Gilead, there was not a city too high for us: the Lord our God delivered up all before us. Devarim 2:36


+ 124 Only to the land of the children of Ammon you came not near; all the side of the river Yabbok and the cities of the hill country, and wherever the Lord our God commanded us. Devarim 2:37


+ 119 And the Lord said to me, Do not fear him, for I have given him, all his people, and his land into your hand, and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon, king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon. Devarim 3:2


+ 123 And this land, which we possessed at that time; from Aro'er, which is by the brook of Arnon, and half of Mount Gilead and its cities, I gave to the Reubenites and to the Gadites. Devarim 3:12


+ 94 Until the Lord has given rest to your brothers, just as He did for you, and until they also possess the land which the Lord, your God, is giving them on the other side of the Jordan, then every man shall return to his possession, which I have given to you. Devarim 3:20


+ 102 Until the Lord has given rest to your brothers, just as He did for you, and until they also possess the land which the Lord, your God, is giving them on the other side of the Jordan, then every man shall return to his possession, which I have given to you. Devarim 3:21


+ 94 Do not fear them, for it is the Lord, your God, Who is fighting for you. Devarim 3:22


+ 82 I entreated the Lord at that time, saying, Devarim 3:23


+ 102 O Lord God, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your strong hand, for who is like God in heaven or on earth who can do as Your deeds and Your might? Devarim 3:24


+ 98 Pray let me cross over and see the good land that is on the other side of the Jordan, this good mountain and the Lebanon. Devarim 3:25


+ 97 But the Lord was angry with me because of you, and He did not listen to me, and the Lord said to me, It is enough for you; speak to Me no more regarding this matter. Devarim 3:26


+ 114 Go up to the top of the hill and lift up your eyes westward and northward and southward and eastward and see with your eyes, for you shall not cross this Jordan. Devarim 3:27


+ 95 But command Joshua and strengthen him and encourage him, for he will cross over before this people, and he will make them inherit the land which you will see. Devarim 3:28


+ 99 And we abided in the valley opposite Beth Peor. Devarim 3:29


+ 104 Do not add to the word which I command you, nor diminish from it, to observe the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. Devarim 4:2


+ 105 The Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire; you heard the sound of the words, but saw no image, just a voice. Devarim 4:12


+ 93 But the Lord took you and brought you out of the iron crucible, out of Egypt, to be a people of His possession, as of this day. Devarim 4:20


+ 99 And the Lord was angry with me because of you, and He swore that I would not cross the Jordan and that I would not come into the good land the Lord, your God, is giving you as an inheritance. Devarim 4:21


+ 86 For I will die in this land; I will not cross the Jordan. You, however, will cross, and you will possess this good land. Devarim 4:22


+ 129 Beware, lest you forget the covenant of the Lord your God, which He made with you, and make for yourselves a graven image, the likeness of anything, which the Lord your God has forbidden you. Devarim 4:23


+ 91 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a zealous God. Devarim 4:24


+ 113 When you beget children and children's children, and you will be long established in the land, and you become corrupt and make a graven image, the likeness of anything, and do evil in the eyes of the Lord your God, to provoke Him to anger, Devarim 4:25


+ 114 I call as witness against you this very day the heaven and the earth, that you will speedily and utterly perish from the land to which you cross the Jordan, to possess; you will not prolong your days upon it, but will be utterly destroyed. Devarim 4:26


+ 106 And the Lord will scatter you among the peoples, and you will remain few in number among the nations to where the Lord will lead you. Devarim 4:27


+ 90 And there you will worship gods, man's handiwork, wood and stone, which neither see, hear, eat, nor smell. Devarim 4:28


+ 102 And from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Devarim 4:29


+ 106 For ask now regarding the early days that were before you, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and from one end of the heavens to the other end of the heavens, whether there was anything like this great thing, or was the likes of it heard? Devarim 4:32


+ 108 So that a murderer might flee there, he who murders his fellow man unintentionally, but did not hate him in time past, that he may flee to one of these cities, so that he might live: Devarim 4:42


+ 86 The Lord our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. Devarim 5:2


+ 82 Keep the Sabbath day to sanctify it, as the Lord your God commanded you. Deverim 5:12


+ 121 And it was, when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, and the mountain was burning with fire, that you approached me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders. Devarim 5:20


+ 108 And you said, "Behold, the Lord, our God, has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we heard His voice from the midst of the fire; we saw this day that God speaks with man, yet man remains alive. Devarim 5:21


+ 107 So now, why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we continue to hear the voice of the Lord, our God, anymore, we will die. Devarim 5:22


+ 98 For who is there of all flesh, who heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? Devarim 5:23


+ 88 You approach, and hear all that the Lord, our God, will say, and you speak to us all that the Lord, our God, will speak to you, and we will hear and do. Devarim 5:24


+ 103 And the Lord heard the sound of your words when you spoke to me, and the Lord said to me, "I have heard the sound of the words of this people that they have spoken to you; they have done well in all that they have spoken. Devarim 5:25


+ 96 Would that their hearts be like this, to fear Me and to keep all My commandments all the days, that it might be well with them and with their children forever! Devarim 5:26


+ 90 Go say to them, 'Return to your tents.' Devarim 5:27


+ 95 But as for you, stand here with Me, and I will speak to you all the commandments, the statutes, and the ordinances which you will teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess. Devarim 5:28


+ 96 Keep them to perform [them] as the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside either to the right or to the left. Devarim 5:29


+ 117 In order that you fear the Lord, your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments that I command you, you, your son, and your son's son, all the days of your life, and in order that your days may be lengthened. Devarim 6:2


+ 104 Beware, lest you forget the Lord, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Devarim 6:12


+ 102 If your son asks you in time to come, saying, "What are the testimonies, the statutes, and the ordinances, which the Lord our God has commanded you?" Devarim 6:20


+ 89 You shall say to your son, "We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt, and the Lord took us out of Egypt with a strong hand. Devarim 6:21


+ 109 And the Lord gave signs and wonders, great and terrible, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes. Devarim 6:22


+ 83 And he brought us out of there, in order that He might bring us and give us the land which He swore to our fathers. Devarim 6:23


+ 108 And the Lord commanded us to perform all these statutes, to fear the Lord, our God, for our good all the days, to keep us alive, as of this day. Devarim 6:24


+ 100 And it will be for our merit that we keep to observe all these commandments before the Lord, our God, as He has commanded us." Devarim 6:25


+ 100 And the Lord, your God, will deliver them to you, and you shall smite them. You shall utterly destroy them; neither shall you make a covenant with them, nor be gracious to them. Devarim 7:2


+ 103 And it will be, because you will heed these ordinances and keep them and perform, that the Lord, your God, will keep for you the covenant and the kindness that He swore to your forefathers. Devarim 7:12


+ 108 And also the tzir'ah, the Lord, your God, will incite against them, until the survivors and those who hide from you perish. Devarim 7:20


+ 91 You shall not be terrified of them, for the Lord, your God, Who is in your midst, is a great and awesome God. Devarim 7:21


+ 107 And the Lord, your God, will drive out those nations from before you, little by little. You will not be able to destroy them quickly, lest the beasts of the field outnumber you. Devarim 7:22


+ 99 But the Lord, your God, will deliver them to you, and He will confound them with great confusion, until they are destroyed. Devarim 7:23


+ 98 And He will deliver their kings into your hand, and you will destroy their name from beneath the heavens; no man will be able to stand up before you, until you have destroyed them. Devarim 7:24


+ 106 The graven images of their gods you will burn with fire; you shall not covet the silver or gold that is upon them and take it for yourself, lest you be ensnared by it, for it is an abomination to the Lord, your God. Devarim 7:25


+ 96 Nor should you bring an abomination into your house, lest you are to be destroyed like it, but you shall utterly detest it, and you shall utterly abhor it; for it is to be destroyed. Devarim 7:26


+ 108 And you shall remember the entire way on which the Lord, your God, led you these forty years in the desert, in order to afflict you to test you, to know what is in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. Devarim 8:2


+ 98 Lest you eat and be sated, and build good houses and dwell therein, Devarim 8:12


+ 132 As the nations that the Lord destroys before you, so will you perish; since you will not obey the Lord your God. Devarim 8:20


+ 83 A great and tall people, the children of the 'Anakim, whom you know and of whom you have heard said, "Who can stand against the children of 'Anak?!" Devarim 9:2


+ 106 And the Lord said to me, "Arise, descend quickly from here, for your people whom you have brought out of Egypt have become corrupt; they have quickly deviated from the way which I commanded them; they have made for themselves a molten image." Devarim 9:12


+ 89 And with Aaron, the Lord was very furious, to destroy him; so I prayed also for Aaron at that time. Devarim 9:20


+ 116 And I took your sin the calf, which you had made, and I burned it with fire, and I crushed it, grinding it well, until it was fine dust, and I cast its dust into the brook that descends from the mountain. Devarim 9:21


+ 93 And at Tav'erah, and at Massah, and at Kivroth Hata'avah, you provoked the Lord to anger. Devarim 9:22


+ 108 And when the Lord sent you from Kadesh Barnea, saying, "Go up and possess the land I have given you," you defied the word of the Lord your God, and you did not believe Him, nor did you obey Him. Devarim 9:23


+ 88 You have been rebelling against the Lord since the day I became acquainted with you. Devarim 9:24


+ 95 So I fell down before the Lord the forty days and the forty nights that I had fallen down; because the Lord had said to destroy you. Devarim 9:25


+ 112 And I prayed to the Lord and said, "O Lord God, do not destroy Your people and Your inheritance, which You have redeemed in Your greatness, and which You have brought out of Egypt with mighty hand. Devarim 9:26


+ 121 Remember your servants, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; do not turn to the stubbornness of this people, to their wickedness, or to their sin. Devarim 9:27


+ 104 Lest [the people of] the land from which you brought us out will say, 'Because of the Lord's inability to bring them to the land about which He spoke to them, and because of His hatred toward them, He has brought them out to slay them in the desert.' Devarim 9:28


+ 105 But they are Your people and Your inheritance, which You brought out with Your great strength and with Your outstretched arm." Devarim 9:29


+ 108 And I shall inscribe on the tablets the words that were upon the first tablets which you shattered and you shall place them into the ark. Devarim 10:2


+ 133 And now, O Israel, what does the Lord, your God, demand of you? Only to fear the Lord, your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, and to worship the Lord, your God, with all your heart and with all your soul, Devarim 10:12


+ 98 You shall fear the Lord, your God, worship Him, and cleave to Him and swear by His Name. Devarim 10:20


+ 94 He is your praise and He is your God, Who did these great and awesome things for you, which your eyes have seen. Devarim 10:21


+ 104 With seventy souls, Your forefathers descended to Egypt, and now the Lord, your God, has made you as the stars of heaven in abundance. Devarim 10:22


+ 114 And you shall know this day; that I speak not with your children, who did not know and who did not see the chastisement of the Lord, your God, His greatness, His mighty hand, and His outstretched arm, Devarim 11:2


+ 119 A land the Lord, your God, looks after; the eyes of Lord your God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. Devarim 11:12


+ 100 And you shall inscribe them upon the doorposts of your house and upon your gates, Devarim 11:20


+ 97 In order that your days may increase and the days of your children, on the land which the Lord swore to your forefathers to give them, as the days of heaven above the earth. Devarim 11:21


+ 125 For if you keep all these commandments which I command you to do them, to love the Lord, your God, to walk in all His ways, and to cleave to Him, Devarim 11:22


+ 79 Then the Lord will drive out all these nations from before you, and you will possess nations greater and stronger than you. Devarim 11:23


+ 108 Every place upon which the soles of your feet will tread, will be yours: from the desert and the Lebanon, from the river, the Euphrates River, and until the western sea, will be your boundary. Devarim 11:24


+ 100 No man will stand up before you; the Lord your God will cast the fear of you and the dread of you on all the land upon which you tread, as He spoke to you. Devarim 11:25


+ 87 Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse. Devarim 11:26


+ 95 The blessing, that you will heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today; Devarim 11:27


+ 121 And the curse, if you will not heed the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn away from the way I command you this day, to follow other gods, which you did not know. Devarim 11:28


+ 100 And it will be, when the Lord, your God, will bring you to the land to which you come, to possess it, that you shall place those blessing upon Mount Gerizim, and those cursing upon Mount Ebal. Devarim 11:29


+ 89 And you shall keep to perform all the statutes and ordinances that I am setting before you today. Devarim 11:32


+ 103 These are the statutes and ordinances that you shall keep to perform in the land which the Lord God of your fathers gives you to possess all the days that you live on the earth. Devarim 12:1


+ 118 You shall utterly destroy from all the places where the nations, that you shall possess, worshipped their gods, upon the lofty mountains and upon the hills, and under every lush tree. Devarim 12:2


+ 109 And you shall tear down their altars, smash their monuments, burn their asherim with fire, cut down the graven images of their gods, and destroy their name from that place. Devarim 12:3


+ 86 You shall not do so to the Lord, your God. Devarim 12:4


+ 101 But only to the place which the Lord your God shall choose from all your tribes, to set His Name there; you shall inquire after His dwelling and come there. Devarim 12:5


+ 109 And there you shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and the separation by your hand, and your vows and your donations, and the firstborn of your cattle and of your sheep. Devarim 12:6


+ 110 And there you shall eat before the Lord, your God, and you shall rejoice in all your endeavors you and your households, as the Lord, your God, has blessed you. Devarim 12:7


+ 96 You shall not do as all the things that we do here this day, every man doing what he deems fit. Devarim 12:8


+ 92 For you have not yet come to the resting place or to the inheritance, which the Lord, your God, is giving you. Devarim 12:9


+ 94 And you shall cross the Jordan and settle in the land the Lord, your God, is giving you as an inheritance, and He will give you rest from all your enemies surrounding you, and you will dwell securely. Devarim 12:10


+ 112 And it will be, that the place the Lord, your God, will choose in which to establish His Name there you shall bring all that I am commanding you: Your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the separation by your hand, and the choice of vows which you will vow to the Lord. Devarim 12:11


+ 110 And you shall rejoice before the Lord, your God you and your sons and your daughters and your menservants and your maidservants, and the Levite who is within your cities, for he has no portion or inheritance with you. Devarim 12:12


+ 95 Beware, lest you offer up your burnt offerings any place you see. Devarim 12:13


+ 106 But only in the place the Lord will choose in one of your tribes; there you shall offer up your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you. Devarim 12:14


+ 102 However, in every desire of your soul, you may slaughter and eat meat in all your cities, according to the blessing of the Lord, your God, which He gave you; the unclean and the clean may eat thereof, as of the deer, and as of the gazelle. Devarim 12:15


+ 96 However, you shall not eat the blood; you shall spill it on the ground like water. Devarim 12:16


+ 109 You may not eat within your cities the tithe of your grain, or of your wine, or of your oil, or the firstborn of your cattle or of your sheep, or any of your vows that you will vow, or your donations, or the separation by your hand. Devarim 12:17


+ 95 But you shall eat them before the Lord, your God, in the place the Lord, your God, will choose you, your son, your daughter, your manservant, your maidservant, and the Levite who is in your cities, and you shall rejoice before the Lord, your God, in all your endeavors. Devarim 12:18


+ 94 Beware, lest you forsake the Levite all your days upon your land. Devarim 12:19


+ 98 When the Lord, your God, expands your boundary, as He has spoken to you, and you say, "I will eat meat," because your soul desires to eat meat, you may eat meat, according to every desire of your soul. Devarim 12:20


+ 107 If the place the Lord, your God, chooses to put His Name there, will be distant from you, you may slaughter of your cattle and of your sheep, which the Lord has given you, as I have commanded you, and you may eat in your cities, according to every desire of your soul. Devarim 12:21


+ 87 But as the deer and the gazelle are eaten, so may you eat them; the unclean and the clean alike may eat of them. Devarim 12:22


+ 96 However, be strong not to eat the blood, for the blood is the soul; and you shall not eat the soul with the flesh. Devarim 12:23


+ 94 You shall not eat it, you shall spill it on the ground, like water. Devarim 12:24


+ 107 You shall not eat it, in order that it be good for you, and for your children after you, when you do what is proper in the eyes of the Lord. Devarim 12:25


+ 107 However, your holy offerings which you will have, and your vows, you shall carry, and come to the place that the Lord chooses. Devarim 12:26


+ 101 And you shall make your burnt offerings the flesh and the blood upon the altar of the Lord, your God, and the blood of your sacrifices shall be poured upon the altar of the Lord, your God, and you shall eat the flesh. Devarim 12:27


+ 111 Keep and hearken to all these words that I command you, that it may benefit you and your children after you, forever, when you do what is good and proper in the eyes of the Lord, your God. Devarim 12:28


+ 98 When the Lord, your God cuts off the nations to which you will come to drive them out from before you, and when you drive them out and dwell in their land, Devarim 12:29


+ 104 Beware, lest you be attracted after them, after they are exterminated from before you; and lest you inquire about their gods, saying, "How did these nations serve their gods? And I will do likewise." Devarim 12:30


+ 97 You shall not do so to the Lord, your God; for every abomination to the Lord which He hates, they did to their gods, for also their sons and their daughters they would burn in fire to their gods. Devarim 12:31


+ 105 If there will arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of a dream, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, Devarim 13:2


+ 109 And all Israel shall listen and fear, and they shall no longer do any evil such as this in your midst. Devarim 13:12


+ 95 For you are a holy people to the Lord, your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a treasured people for Him, out of all the nations that are upon the earth. Devarim 14:2


+ 102 But these are those from which you shall not eat: The eagle or the griffin vulture, the ossifrage, the osprey; Devarim 14:12


+ 91 You may eat any clean fowl. Devarim 14:20


+ 107 You shall not eat any carcass. You may give it to the stranger who is in your cities, that he may eat it, or you may sell it to a foreigner; for you are a holy people to the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Devarim 14:21


+ 103 You shall tithe all the seed crop that the field gives forth, year by year. Devarim 14:22


+ 112 And you shall eat before the Lord, your God, in the place He chooses to establish His Name therein, the tithes of your grain, your wine, and your oil, and the firstborn of your cattle and of your sheep, so that you may learn to fear the Lord, your God, all the days. Devarim 14:23


+ 101 And if the way be too long for you, that you are unable to carry it, for the place which the Lord, your God, will choose to establish His Name therein, is too far from you, for the Lord, your God, will bless you Devarim 14:24


+ 97 Then you shall turn it into money, and bind up the money in your hand, and you shall go to the place the Lord, your God, will choose. Devarim 14:25


+ 104 And you shall turn that money into whatever your soul desires; cattle, sheep, new wine or old wine, or whatever your soul desires, and you shall eat there before the Lord, your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household. Devarim 14:26


+ 94 And as for the Levite who is in your cities you shall not forsake him, for he has neither portion nor inheritance with you. Devarim 14:27


+ 102 At the end of three years, you shall take out all the tithe of your crop in that year and place it in your cities. Devarim 14:28


+ 100 And the Levite because he has no portion or inheritance with you and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow, who are in your cities, will come and eat and be satisfied; so that the Lord, your God, will bless you in all the work of your hand that you will do. Devarim 14:29


+ 105 And this is the manner of the release; to release the hand of every creditor from what he lent his friend; he shall not exact from his friend or his brother, because time of the release for the Lord has arrived. Devarim 15:2


+ 96 If your brother, a Hebrew man or a Hebrew woman, is sold to you, he shall serve you for six years, and in the seventh year you shall send him forth free from you. Devarin 15:12


+ 102 You shall eat it before the Lord, your God, year by year, in the place the Lord chooses-you and your household. Devarim 15:20


+ 94 And if there be any blemish in it, whether it be lame, or blind, or any ill blemish, you shall not sacrifice it to the Lord, your God. Devarim 15:21


+ 102 You shall eat it within your cities, the unclean and the clean together, as the deer, and as the gazelle. Devarim 15:22


+ 93 However, you shall not eat its blood; you shall pour it on the ground, as water. Devarim 15:23


+ 105 You shall slaughter the Passover sacrifice to the Lord, your God, [of the] flock, and [the Festival sacrifices of the] cattle, in the place which the Lord will choose to establish His Name therein. Devarim 16:2


+ 87 And you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt, and you shall keep and perform these statutes. Devarim 16:12


+ 87 Justice, justice shall you pursue, that you may live and possess the land the Lord, your God, is giving you. Devarim 16:20


+ 92 You shall not plant for yourself an asherah, or any tree, near the altar of the Lord, your God, which you shall make for yourself. Devarim 16:21


+ 101 And you shall not set up for yourself a monument, which the Lord, your God hates. Devarim 16:22


+ 111 If there will be found among you, within one of your cities which the Lord, your God is giving you, a man or woman who does evil in the eyes of the Lord, your God, to transgress His covenant, Devarim 17:2


+ 122 And the man who acts intentionally, not obeying the kohen who stands there to serve the Lord, your God, or to the judge that man shall die, and you shall abolish evil from Israel. Devarim 17:12


+ 120 So that his heart will not be haughty over his brothers, and so that he will not turn away from the commandment, either to the right or to the left, in order that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his sons, among Israel. Devarim 17:20


+ 87 But he shall have no inheritance among his brothers; the Lord is his inheritance, as He spoke to him. Devarim 18:2


+ 94 For whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations, the Lord, your God is driving them out from before you. Devarim 18:12


+ 112 But the prophet who intentionally speaks a word in My name, which I did not command him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die. Devarim 18:20


+ 106 Now if you say to yourself, "How will we know the word that the Lord did not speak?" Devarim 18:21


+ 102 If the prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, and the thing does not occur and does not come about, that is the thing the Lord did not speak. The prophet has spoken it wantonly; you shall not be afraid of him. Devarim 18:22


+ 85 You shall separate three cities for yourself in the midst of your land, which the Lord, your God, is giving you to possess. Devarim 19:2


+ 88 The elders of his city shall send and take him from there and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of the blood, that he may die. Devarim 19:12


+ 91 And those who remain shall listen and fear, and they shall no longer continue to commit any such evil thing among you. Devarim 19:20


+ 93 You shall not have pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot. Devarim 19:21


+ 95 When you go out to war against your enemies, and you see horse and chariot, a people more numerous than you, you shall not be afraid of them, for the Lord, your God is with you Who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Devarim 20:1


+ 85 And it will be, when you approach the battle, that the kohen shall come near, and speak to the people. Devarim 20:2


+ 108 And he shall say to them, "Hear, O Israel, today you are approaching the battle against your enemies. Let your hearts not be faint; you shall not be afraid, and you shall not be alarmed, and you shall not be terrified because of them. Devarim 20:3


+ 92 For the Lord, your God, is the One Who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. Devarim 20:4


+ 114 And the officers shall speak to the people, saying, What man is there who has built a new house and has not [yet] inaugurated it? Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the war, and another man inaugurate it. Devarim 20:5


+ 106 And what man is there who has planted a vineyard, and has not [yet] redeemed it? Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the war, and another man redeem it. Devarim 20:6


+ 99 And what man is there who has betrothed a woman and has not [yet] taken her? Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the war, and another man take her." Devarim 20:7


+ 104 And the officers shall continue to speak to the people and say, "What man is there who is fearful and fainthearted? Let him go and return to his house, that he should not cause the heart of his brothers to melt, as his heart." Devarim 20:8


+ 88 And it shall be, that when the officials finish speaking to the people, they shall appoint officers of the legions at the edges of the people. Devarim 20:9


+ 80 When you approach a city to wage war against it, you shall propose peace to it. Devarim 20:10


+ 96 And it will be, if it responds to you with peace, and it opens up to you, then it will be, [that] all the people found therein shall become tributary to you, and they shall serve you. Devarim 20:11


+ 94 But if it does not make peace with you, and it wages war against you, you shall besiege it, Devarim 20:12


+ 109 And the Lord, your God, will deliver it into your hands, and you shall strike all its males with the edge of the sword. Devarim 20:13


+ 104 However, the women, the children, and the livestock, and all that is in the city, all its spoils you shall take for yourself, and you shall eat the spoils of your enemies, which the Lord, your God, has given you. Devarim 20:14


+ 88 Thus you shall do to all the cities that are very far from you, which are not of the cities of these nations. Devarim 20:15


+ 113 However, of these peoples' cities, which the Lord, your God, gives you as an inheritance, you shall not allow any soul to live. Devarim 20:16


+ 105 Rather, you shall utterly destroy them: The Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, as the Lord, your God, has commanded you. Devarim 20:17


+ 105 So that they should not teach you to act according to all their abominations that they have done for their gods, whereby you would sin against the Lord, your God. Devarim 20:18


+ 119 When you besiege a city for many days to wage war against it to capture it, you shall not destroy its trees by wielding an ax against them, for you may eat from them, but you shall not cut them down. Is the tree of the field a man, to go into the siege before you? Devarim 20:19


+ 109 However, a tree you know is not a food tree, you may destroy and cut down, and you shall build bulwarks against the city that makes war with you, until its submission. Devarim 20:20


+ 85 If a slain person be found in the land which the Lord, your God is giving you to possess, lying in the field, and it is not known who slew him, Devarim 21:1


+ 89 Then your elders and judges shall go forth, and they shall measure to the cities around the corpse. Devarim 21:2


+ 108 And it will be, that from the city closer to the corpse, the elders of that city shall take a calf with which work has never been done, and that has never drawn a yoke, Devarim 21:3


+ 89 And the elders of that city shall bring the calf down to a rugged valley, which was neither tilled nor sown, and there in the valley, they shall decapitate the calf. Devarim 21:4


+ 100 And the kohanim, the sons of Levi, shall approach, for the Lord, your God, has chosen them to serve Him and to bless in the Name of the Lord, and by their mouth shall every controversy and every lesion be judged. Devarim 21:5


+ 110 And all the elders of that city, who are the nearest to the corpse, shall wash their hands over the calf that was decapitated in the valley; Devarim 21:6


+ 97 And they shall announce and say, "Our hands did not shed this blood, nor did our eyes see this crime." Devarim 21:7


+ 111 "Atone for Your people Israel, whom You have redeemed, O Lord, and lay not the guilt of innocent blood among your people Israel." And so the blood shall be atoned for them. Devarim 21:8


+ 97 And you shall abolish the shedding of innocent blood from among you, for you shall do what is proper in the eyes of the Lord. Devarim 21:9


+ 94 If you go out to war against your enemies, and the Lord, your God, will deliver him into your hands, and you take his captives, Devarim 21:10


+ 98 And you see among the captives a beautiful woman and you desire her, you may take [her] for yourself as a wife. Devarim 21:11


+ 89 You shall bring her into your home, and she shall shave her head and let her nails grow. Devarim 21:12


+ 121 And she shall remove the garment of her captivity from upon herself, and stay in your house, and weep for her father and her mother for a full month. After that, you may be intimate with her and possess her, and she will be a wife for you. Devarim 21:13


+ 108 And it will be, if you do not desire her, then you shall send her away wherever she wishes, but you shall not sell her for money. You shall not keep her as a servant, because you have afflicted her. Devarim 21:14


+ 102 If a man has two wives-one beloved and the other despised-and they bear him sons, the beloved one and the despised one, and the firstborn son is from the despised one. Devarim 21:15


+ 115 Then it will be, on the day he [the husband] bequeaths his property to his sons, that he will not be able to give the son of the beloved [wife] birthright precedence over the son of the despised [wife]-the [real] firstborn son. Devarim 21:16


+ 114 Rather, he must acknowledge the firstborn, the son of the despised [wife] and give him a double share in all that he possesses, because he [this firstborn son] is the first of his strength, then he has the birthright entitlement. Devarim 21:17


+ 104 If a man has a wayward and rebellious son, who does not obey his father or his mother, and they chasten him, and he still does not listen to them, Devarim 21:18


+ 87 His father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city, and to the gate of his place. Devarim 21:19


+ 153 And they shall say to the elders of his city, "This son of ours is wayward and rebellious; he does not obey us; he is a glutton and a guzzler." Devarim 21:20


+ 95 And all the men of his city shall pelt him to death with stones, and he shall die. So shall you clear out the evil from among you, and all Israel will listen and fear. Devarim 21:21


+ 90 If a man commits a sin for which he is sentenced to death, and he is put to death, you shall [then] hang him on a pole. Devarim 21:22


+ 116 But you shall not leave his body on the pole overnight. Rather, you shall bury him on that [same] day, for a hanging [human corpse] is a blasphemy of God, and you shall not defile your land, which the Lord, your God, is giving you as an inheritance. Devarim 21:23


+ 85 You shall not see your brother's ox or sheep straying, and ignore them. Rather, you shall return them to your brother. Devarim 22:1


+ 104 But if your brother is not near you, or if you do not know him, you shall bring it into your house, and it shall be with you until your brother seeks it out, whereupon you shall return it to him. Devarim 22:2


+ 91 So shall you do with his donkey, and so shall you do with his garment, and so shall you do with any lost article of your brother which he has lost and you have found. You shall not ignore it. Devarim 22:3


+ 99 You shall not see your brother's donkey or his ox fallen under its load on the road, and ignore them. Rather, you shall pick up the load with him. Devarim 22:4


+ 96 A man's attire shall not be on a woman, nor may a man wear a woman's garment because whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord, your God. Devarim 22:5


+ 112 If a bird's nest chances before you on the road, on any tree, or on the ground, and it contains fledglings or eggs, if the mother is sitting upon the fledglings or upon the eggs, you shall not take the mother upon the young. Devarim 22:6


+ 116 You shall send away the mother, and then you may take the young for yourself, in order that it should be good for you, and you should lengthen your days. Devarim 22:7


+ 119 When you build a new house, you shall make a guard rail for your roof, so that you shall not cause blood [to be spilled] in your house, that the one who falls should fall from it the roof. Devarim 22:8


+ 111 You shall not sow your vineyard together with a mixed variety of species, lest the increase, even the seed that you sow and the yield of the vineyard both become forbidden. Devarim 22:9


+ 143 You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together. Devarim 22:10


+ 90 You shall not wear a mixture of wool and linen together. Devarim 22:11


+ 93 You shall make yourself twisted threads, on the four corners of your garment with which you cover yourself. Devarim 22:12


+ 80 If a man takes a wife, is intimate with her and despises her, Devarim 22:13


+ 112 And he makes libelous charges against her and gives her a bad name, saying, "I took this woman, and when I came to her, I did not find any evidence of virginity for her." Devarim 22:14


+ 97 Then the girl's father and her mother shall obtain evidence of the girl's virginity, and take it out to the elders of the city, to the gate. Devarim 22:15


+ 89 And the girl's father shall say to the elders, "I gave my daughter to this man as a wife, and he despised her; Devarim 22:16


+ 101 And behold, he made libelous charges, saying, 'I did not find evidence of your daughter's virginity.' But this is the evidence of my daughter's virginity!' And they shall spread the garment before the elders of the city. Devarim 22:17


+ 83 Then, the elders of that city shall take the man and chasten him. Devarim 22:18


+ 114 And they shall fine him one hundred [shekels of] silver because he defamed a virgin of Israel, and he give it to the girl's father. And she shall be his wife; he shall not send her away all the days of his life. Devarim 22:19

+ 118 They shall take the girl out to the entrance of her father's house, and the men of her city shall pelt her with stones, and she shall die, for she did a disgraceful thing in Israel, to commit adultery in her father's house. So shall you clear away the evil from among you. Devarim 22:21


+ 108 If a man is found lying with a married woman, even both of them shall die the man lying with the woman and the woman. So shall you clear away the evil from Israel. Devarim 22:22

+ 115 You shall take them both out to the gate of that city, and you shall pelt them with stones, and they shall die: the girl, because she did not cry out even though she was in the city, and the man, because he violated his neighbor's wife. So shall you clear away the evil from among you. Devarim 22:24


+ 108 But if a man finds the betrothed girl in the field, and the man overpowers her and lies with her, then only the man who lay with her shall die. Devarim 22:25


+ 116 Whereas to the girl, you shall do nothing the girl did not commit a sin deserving of death, for just as a man rises up against his fellow and murders him, so is this case. Devarim 22:26


+ 96 Because he found her in the field. The betrothed girl had cried out, but there was no one to save her. Devarim 22:27


+ 105 If a man finds a virgin girl who was not betrothed, and seizes her and lies with her, and they are found, Devarim 22:28


+ 108 The man who lay with her shall give fifty shekels of silver to the girl's father, and she shall become his wife, because he violated her. He shall not send her away all the days of his life. Devarim 22:29

+ 89 A man with injured testicles or whose member is cut, may not enter the assembly of the Lord. Devarim 23:2


+ 80 A bastard shall not enter the assembly of the Lord; even the tenth generation shall not enter the assembly of the Lord. Devarim 23:3


+ 90 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter the assembly of the Lord; even the tenth generation shall never enter the assembly of the Lord. Devarim 23:4


+ 124 Because they did not greet you with bread and water on the way, when you left Egypt, and because he [the people of Moab] hired Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor in Aram Naharaim against you, to curse you. Devarim 23:5


+ 101 But the Lord, your God, did not want to listen to Balaam. So the Lord, your God, transformed the curse into a blessing for you, because the Lord, your God, loves you. Devarim 23:6


+ 99 You shall not ever seek out their welfare or their good, all your days. Devarim 23:7

+ 107 And you shall have a designated place outside the camp, so that you can go out there to use it as a privy. Devarim 23:13


+ 117 And you shall keep a stake in addition to your weapons; and it shall be, when you sit down outside to relieve yourself, you shall dig with it, and you shall return and cover your excrement. Devarim 23:14


+ 104 For the Lord, your God, goes along in the midst of your camp, to rescue you and to deliver your enemies before you. Therefore, your camp shall be holy, so that He should not see anything unseemly among you and would turn away from you. Devarim 23:15


+ 86 You shall not deliver a slave to his master if he seeks refuge with you from his master. Devarim 23:16

+ 96 But if you shall refrain from making vows, you will have no sin. Devarim 23:23


+ 100 Observe and do what is emitted from your lips just as you have pledged to the Lord, your God, as a donation, which you have spoken with your mouth. Devarim 23:24


+ 103 When you enter your neighbor's vineyard, you may eat as many grapes as you desire, until you are sated, but you shall not put any into your vessel. Devarim 23:25


+ 100 When you enter your neighbor's standing grain, you may pick the ears with your hand, but you shall not lift a sickle upon your neighbor's standing grain. Devarim 23:26


+ 118 When a man takes a wife and is intimate with her, and it happens that she does not find favor in his eyes because he discovers in her an unseemly moral matter, and he writes for her a bill of divorce and places it into her hand, and sends her away from his house, Devarim 24:1

+ 110 And the Lord will scatter you among all the nations, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you will serve other deities unknown to you or your forefathers, deities of wood and stone. Devarim 28:64


+ 113 And among those nations, you will not be calm, nor will your foot find rest. There, the Lord will give you a trembling heart, dashed hopes, and a depressed soul. Devarim 28:65


+ 84 And your life will hang in suspense before you. You will be in fear night and day, and you will not believe in your life. Devarim 28:66


+ 117 In the morning, you will say, If only it were evening! " and in the evening, you will say, If only it were morning! because of the fear in your heart which you will experience and because of the sights that you will behold. Devarim 28:67

+ 112 And Moses called all of Israel and said to them, You have seen all that the Lord did before your very eyes in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh, to all his servants, and to all his land; Devarim 29:1


+ 108 The great trials which your very eyes beheld and those great signs and wonders. Devarim 29:2


+ 105 Yet until this day, the Lord has not given you a heart to know, eyes to see and ears to hear. Devarim 29:3


+ 94 I led you through the desert for forty years during which time your garments did not wear out from upon you, nor did your shoes wear out from upon your feet. Devarim 29:4


+ 108 You neither ate bread, nor drank new wine or old wine, in order that you would know that I am the Lord, your God. Devarim 29:5


+ 95 And then you arrived at this place. And Sihon, the king of Heshbon, and Og, the king of Bashan, came out towards us in battle, and we smote them. Devarim 29:6


+ 103 And we took their land, and we gave it as an inheritance to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh. Devarim 29:7


+ 88 And you shall observe the words of this covenant and fulfill them, in order that you will succeed in all that you do. Devarim 29:8


+ 98 You are all standing this day before the Lord, your God the leaders of your tribes, your elders and your officers, every man of Israel, Devarim 29:9


+ 109 Your young children, your women, and your convert who is within your camp both your woodcutters and your water drawers, Devarim 29:10


+ 97 That you may enter the covenant of the Lord, your God, and His oath, which the Lord, your God, is making with you this day, Devarim 29:11


+ 129 In order to establish you this day as His people, and that He will be your God, as He spoke to you, and as He swore to your forefathers to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. Devarim 29:12


+ 101 But not only with you am I making this covenant and this oath, Devarim 29:13


+ 94 But with those standing here with us today before the Lord, our God, and also with those who are not here with us, this day. Devarim 29:14


+ 97 For you know how we dwelled in the land of Egypt, and how we passed among the nations through which you passed. Devarim 29:15


+ 106 And you saw their abominations and their repugnant idols of wood and stone, silver and gold which were with them. Devarim 29:16


+ 122 Perhaps there is among you a man, woman, family, or tribe, whose heart strays this day from the Lord, our God, to go and worship the deities of those nations. Perhaps there is among you a root that produces hemlock and wormwood. Devarim 29:17


+ 115 And it will be, when he such a person hears the words of this oath, that he will bless himself in his heart, saying, I will have peace, even if I follow my heart's desires, in order to add the punishment for the unintentional sins of this man to that of his intentional sins. Devarim 29:18

+ 119 And the Lord will separate him for evil, out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant, written in this Torah scroll. Devarim 29:20


+ 113 And a later generation, your descendants, who will rise after you, along with the foreigner who comes from a distant land, will say, upon seeing the plagues of that land and the diseases with which the Lord struck it: Devarim 29:21


+ 117 Sulfur and salt have burned up its entire land! It cannot be sown, nor can it grow anything, not even any grass will sprout upon it. It is like the overturning of Sodom, Gemorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the Lord overturned in His fury and in His rage. Devarim 29:22


+ 93 And all the nations will say, Why did the Lord do so to this land? What is the reason for this great rage of fury? Devarim 29:23


+ 115 Then they will say, It is because they abandoned the covenant of the Lord, God of their fathers, the covenant which He made with them when He took them out of the land of Egypt, Devarim 29:24


+ 99 For they went and served other deities, prostrating themselves to them deities which they had not known, and which He had not apportioned to them. Devarim 29:25


+ 100 And the Lord's fury raged against that land, bringing upon it the entire curse written in this book. Devarim 29:26


+ 104 And the Lord uprooted them from upon their land, with fury, anger and great wrath, and He cast them to another land, as it is this day. Devarim 29:27


+ 119 The hidden things belong to the Lord, our God, but the revealed things apply to us and to our children forever: that we must fulfill all the words of this Torah. Devarim 29:28


+ 98 And you will return to the Lord, your God, with all your heart and with all your soul, and you will listen to His voice according to all that I am commanding you this day you and your children, Devarim 30:2


+ 74 It is not in heaven, that you should say, "Who will go up to heaven for us and fetch it for us, to tell it to us, so that we can fulfill it?" Devarim 30:12


+ 117 To love the Lord your God, to listen to His voice, and to cleave to Him. For that is your life and the length of your days, to dwell on the land which the Lord swore to your forefathers to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob to give to them. Devarim 30:20


+ 85 He said to them, Today I am one hundred and twenty years old. I can no longer go or come, and the Lord said to me, You shall not cross this Jordan. Devarim 31:2


+ 75 The Lord, your God He will cross before you; He will destroy these nations from before you so that you will possess them. Joshua he will cross before you, as the Lord has spoken. Devarim 32:3


+ 67 And the Lord will do to them, as He did to the Amorite kings, Sihon and Og, and to their land, all of which He destroyed. Devarim 32:4


+ 85 Assemble the people: the men, the women, and the children, and your stranger in your cities, in order that they hear, and in order that they learn and fear the Lord, your God, and they will observe to do all the words of this Torah. Devarim 31:12


+ 93 When I bring them to the land which I have sworn to their forefathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey, they will eat and be satisfied, and live on the fat of the land. Then, they will turn to other deities and serve them, provoking Me and violating My covenant. Devarim 31:20


+ 97 And it will be, when they will encounter many evils and troubles, this song will bear witness against them, for it will not be forgotten from the mouth of their offspring. For I know their inclination what they [are planning] to do today, even before I bring them in to the land which I have sworn to give them." Devarim 31:21


+ 82 And Moses wrote this song on that day, and taught it to the children of Israel. Devarim 31:22


+ 105 And He commanded Joshua the son of Nun, and said: "Be strong and courageous! For you shall bring the children of Israel to the land that I have sworn to them, and I will be with you." Devarim 31:23


+ 92 And it was, when Moses finished writing the words of this Torah in a scroll, until their very completion, Devarim 31:24


+ 77 That Moses commanded the Levites, who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord, saying: Devarim 31:25


+ 83 "Take this Torah scroll and place it along side the ark of covenant of the Lord, your God, and it will be there as a witness. Devarim 31:26


+ 88 For I know your rebellious spirit and your stubbornness. Even while I am alive with you today you are rebelling against the Lord, and surely after my death! Devarim 31:27


+ 96 Assemble to me all the elders of your tribes and your officers, and I will speak these words into their ears, and I will call upon the heaven and the earth as witnesses against them. Devarim 31:28


+ 105 For I know that after my death, you will surely become corrupted, and deviate from the way which I had commanded you. Consequently, the evil will befall you at the end of days, because you did evil in the eyes of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands. Devarim 31:29


+ 82 Listen, O heavens, and I will speak! And let the earth hear the words of my mouth! Devarim 32:1


+ 105 My lesson will drip like rain; my word will flow like dew; like storm winds on vegetation and like raindrops on grass. Devarim 32:2


+ 70 When I call out the name of the Lord, ascribe greatness to our God. Devarim 32:3


+ 101 The deeds of the Mighty Rock are perfect, for all His ways are just; a faithful God, without injustice He is righteous and upright. Devarim 32:4


+ 82 Destruction is not His; it is His children's defect you crooked and twisted generation. Devarim 32:5


+ 90 Is this how you repay the Lord, you disgraceful, unwise people?! Is He not your Father, your Master? He has made you and established you. Devarim 32:6


+ 77 Remember the days of old; reflect upon the years of other generations. Ask your father, and he will tell you; your elders, and they will inform you. Devarim 32:7


+ 110 When the Most High gave nations their lot, when He separated the sons of man, He set up the boundaries of peoples according to the number of the children of Israel. Devarim 32:8


+ 118 Because the Lord's portion is His people Jacob, the lot of His inheritance. Devarim 32:9


+ 94 He found them in a desert land, and in a desolate, howling wasteland. He encompassed them and bestowed understanding upon them; He protected them as the pupil of His eye. Devarim 32:10


+ 95 As an eagle awakens its nest, hovering over its fledglings, it spreads its wings, taking them and carrying them on its pinions. Devarim 32:11


+ 86 So the Lord guided them alone, and there was no alien deity with Him. Devarim 32:12


+ 96 He made them ride upon the high places of the earth, that they would eat the produce of the field. He let them suck honey from a rock, and oil from the mighty part of the crag. Devarim 32:13


+ 128 The cream of cattle and the milk of sheep, with the fat of lambs and rams of Bashan and he goats, with kidneys of wheat, and it the congregation of Israel would drink the blood of grapes which was as the finest wine. Devarim 32:14


+ 104 And Jeshurun became fat and rebelled; you grew fat, thick and rotund; [Israel] forsook the God Who made them, and spurned the [Mighty] Rock of their salvation. Devarim 32:15


+ 88 They provoked His zeal with alien worship; they made Him angry with abominations deeds. Devarim 32:16


+ 105 They sacrificed to demons, which have no power, deities they did not know, new things that only recently came, which your forefathers did not fear. Devarim 32:17


+ 75 You forgot the Mighty Rock Who bore you; you forgot the God Who delivered you. Devarim 32:18


+ 72 And the Lord saw this and became angry, provoked by His sons and daughters. Devarim 32:19


+ 99 And He said, "I will hide My face from them. I will see what their end will be, for they are a generation of changes; they are not recognizable as My children whom I have reared. Devarim 32:20


+ 92 They have provoked My jealousy with a non god, provoked My anger with their vanities. Thus, I will provoke their jealousy with a non people, provoke their anger with a foolish nation. Devarim 32:21


+ 91 For a fire blazed in My wrath, and burned to the lowest depths. It consumed the land and its produce, setting aflame the foundations of mountains. Devarim 32:22


+ 73 I will link evils upon them. I will use up My arrows on them. Devarim 32:23


+ 91 They will sprout hair from famine, attacked by demons, excised by Meriri. I will incite the teeth of livestock upon them, with the venom of creatures that slither in the dust. Devarim 32:24


+ 107 From outside, the sword will bereave, and terror from within; young men and maidens, suckling babes with venerable elders. Devarim 32:25


+ 74 I said that I would make an end of them, eradicate their remembrance from mankind. Devarim 32:26


+ 101 Were it not that the enemy's wrath was heaped up, lest their adversaries distort; lest they claim, "Our hand was triumphant! The Lord did none of this!" Devarim 32:27


+ 82 For they are a nation devoid of counsel, and they have no understanding. Devarim 32:28


+ 77 If they were wise, they would understand this; they would reflect upon
