Dalai Lama + 412 The will of the nation, speaking with the voice of battle and through the amended Constitution, has fulfilled the great promise of 1776 by proclaiming 'liberty throughout the land to all the inhabitants thereof.' The elevation of the negro race from slavery to the full rights of citizenship is the most important political change we have known since the adoption of the Constitution of 1787. NO thoughtful man can fail to appreciate its beneficent effect upon our institutions and people. It has freed us from the perpetual danger of war and dissolution. It has added immensely to the moral and industrial forces of our people. It has liberated the master as well as the slave from a relation which wronged and enfeebled both. It has surrendered to their own guardianship the manhood of more than 5,000,000 people, and has opened to each one of them a career of freedom and usefulness. James A.

They don’t do things they don’t want to do. 10. They don’t forget that happiness is a decision. + 468 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 + 354 Become a Friendlier Person 1.

Dale Carnegie + 923 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.'

Emeril Lagasse + 433 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.

But error is endlessly diversified; it has no reality, but is the pure and simple creation of the mind that invents it. In this field the soul has room enough to expand herself, to display all her boundless faculties, and all her beautiful and interesting extravagancies and absurdities.

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.

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 + 343 Nitai the Arbelite would say: Distance yourself from a bad neighbor, do not cleave to a wicked person, and do not abandon belief in retribution. Pirkei Avot 1:7 + 335 His son, Shimon, would say: All my life I have been raised among the wise, and I have found nothing better for the body than silence. The essential thing is not study, but deed. And one who speaks excessively brings on sin. Pirkei Avot 1:17 + 343 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 + 342 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 + 335 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 + 373 Rabbi Eliezer the son of Azariah would say: If there is no Torah, there is no common decency; if there is no common decency, there is no Torah. If there is no wisdom, there is no fear of God; if there is no fear of God, there is no wisdom. If there is no applied knowledge, there is no analytical knowledge; if there is no analytical knowledge, there is no applied knowledge. If there is no flour, there is no Torah; if there is no Torah, there is no flour. He would also say: One whose wisdom is greater than his deeds, what is he comparable to? To a tree with many branches and few roots; comes a storm and uproots it, and turns it on its face. As is stated, "He shall be as a lone tree in a wasteland, and shall not see when good comes; he shall dwell parched in the desert, a salt land, uninhabited" (Jeremiah 17:6). But one whose deeds are greater than his wisdom, to what is he compared? To a tree with many roots and few branches, whom all the storms in the world cannot budge from its place. As is stated: "He shall be as a tree planted upon water, who spreads his roots by the river; who fears not when comes heat, whose leaf is ever lush; who worries not in a year of drought, and ceases not to yield fruit" (ibid., v. 8). Pirkei Avot 3:18 + 313 His son, Rabbi Ishmael would say: One who refrains from serving as a judge avoids hatred, thievery and false oaths. One who frivolously hands down rulings is a fool, wicked and arrogant. Pirkei Avot 4:7 + 301 He would also say: A single moment of repentance and good deeds in this world is greater than all of the World to Come. And a single moment of bliss in the World to Come is greater than all of the present world. Pirkei Avot 4:17 + 331 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 + 338 There are seven things that characterize a boor, and seven that characterize a wise man. A wise man does not speak before one who is greater than him in wisdom or age. He does not interrupt his fellow's words. He does not hasten to answer. His questions are on the subject and his answers to the point. He responds to first things first and to latter things later. Concerning what he did not hear, he says "I did not hear." He concedes to the truth. With the boor, the reverse of all these is the case. Pirkei Avot 5:7 + 314 Any dispute that is for the sake of Heaven is destined to endure; one that is not for the sake of Heaven is not destined to endure. Which is a dispute that is for the sake of Heaven? The dispute(s) between Hillel and Shamai. Which is a dispute that is not for the sake of Heaven? The dispute of Korach and all his company. Pirkei Avot 5:17 + 335 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 + 355 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 + 378 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 + 403 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 + 347 Everything that God created in His world, He did not create but for His glory. As is stated (Isaiah 43:7): "All that is called by My name and for My glory, I created it, formed it, also I made it." And it says (Exodus 15:1): "God shall reign forever and ever." Pirkei Avot 6:11 + 287 Yeshuat Hashem k’heref ayin. The salvation of God is like the blink of an eye. Pesikta Zutreta, Esther 4:17. + 334 This is an exceedingly strange development, unexpected by all but the theologians. They have always accepted the word of the Bible: In the beginning God created heaven and earth… But for the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; and as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries. - Robert Jastrow. God and the Astronomers [New York: W.W. Norton and Co., 1978], 116. Professor Jastrow was the founder of NASA’s Goddard Institute, now director of the Mount Wilson Institute and its observatory. + 293 Knowledge begins with respect for the Lord, but fools hate wisdom and discipline. Mishlei 1:7 + 256 It is useless to spread out a net right where the birds can see it. Mishlei 1:17 + 390 When disaster comes over you like a storm, when trouble strikes you like a whirlwind, when pain and trouble overwhelm you. Mishlei 1:27 + 271 He stores up wisdom for those who are honest. Like a shield he protects the innocent. Mishlei 2:7 + 308 She leaves the husband she married when she was young. She ignores the promise she made before God. Mishlei 2:17 + 274 Her house is on the way to death; those who took that path are now all dead. Mishlei 2:27 + 295 Don’t depend on your own wisdom. Respect the Lord and refuse to do wrong. Mishlei 3:7 + 278 Wisdom will make your life pleasant and will bring you peace. Mishlei 3:17 + 281 Whenever you are able, do good to people who need help. Mishlei 3:27 + 273 Wisdom is the most important thing; so get wisdom. If it costs everything you have, get understanding. Mishlei 4:7 + 280 They feast on wickedness and cruelty as if they were eating bread and drinking wine. Mishlei 4:17 + 283 Don’t turn off the road of goodness; keep away from evil paths. Mishlei 4:27 + 278 Now, my sons, listen to me, and don’t ignore what I say. Mishlei 5:7 + 282 These things are yours alone and shouldn’t be shared with strangers. Mishlei 5:17 + 235 Ants have no commander, no leader or ruler, Mishlei 6:7 + 301 A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that kill innocent people, Mishlei 6:17 + 284 You cannot carry hot coals against your chest without burning your clothes, Mishlei 6:27 + 274 My son, remember what I say, and treasure my commands. Mishlei 7:1 + 265 Obey my commands, and you will live. Guard my teachings as you would your own eyes. Mishlei 7:2 + 274 Remind yourself of them; write them on your heart as if on a tablet. Mishlei 7:3 + 310 Treat wisdom as a sister, and make understanding your closest friend. Mishlei 7:4 + 313 Wisdom and understanding will keep you away from adultery, away from the unfaithful wife and her pleasing words. Mishlei 7:5 + 289 Once while I was at the window of my house I looked out through the shutters. Mishlei 7:6 + 338 And saw some foolish, young men. I noticed one of them had no wisdom. Mishlei 7:7 + 268 He was walking down the street near the corner on the road leading to her house. Mishlei 7:8 + 278 It was the twilight of the evening; the darkness of the night was just beginning. Mishlei 7:9 + 269 Then the woman approached him, dressed like a prostitute and planning to trick him. Mishlei 7:10 + 248 She was loud and stubborn and never stayed at home. Mishlei 7:11 + 267 She was always out in the streets or in the city squares, waiting around on the corners of the streets. Mishlei 7:12 + 268 She grabbed him and kissed him. Without shame she said to him, Mishlei 7:13 + 286 I made my fellowship offering and took some of the meat home. Today I have kept my special promises. Mishlei 7:14 + 245 So I have come out to meet you; I have been looking for you and have found you. Mishlei 7:15 + 239 I have covered my bed with colored sheets from Egypt. Mishlei 7:16 + 254 I have made my bed smell sweet with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. Mishlei 7:17 + 419 Come, let’s make love until morning. Let’s enjoy each other’s love. Mishlei 7:18 + 267 My husband is not home; he has gone on a long trip. Mishlei 7:19 + 297 He took a lot of money with him and won’t be home for weeks. Mishlei 7:20 + 319 By her clever words she made him give in; by her pleasing words she led him into doing wrong. Mishlei 7:21 + 236 All at once he followed her, like an ox led to the butcher, like a deer caught in a trap Mishlei 7:22 + 293 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 + 262 Now, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say. Mishlei 7:24 + 270 Do not let yourself be tricked by such a woman; do not go where she leads you. Mishlei 7:25 + 257 She has ruined many good men, and many have died because of her. Mishlei 7:26 + 310 Her house is on the road to death, the road that leads down to the grave. Mishlei 7:27 + 262 What I say is true, I refuse to speak evil. Mishlei 8:7 + 291 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. Mishlei 8:17 + 227 When He established the heavens, there I was, when He drew a circle over the face of the deep; Mishlei 8:27 + 300 He who chastens a scorner takes disgrace for himself, and he who reproves a wicked man, that is his blemish. Mishlei 9:7 + 258 "Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant." Mishlei 9:17 + 270 Whoever accepts correction is on the way to life, but whoever ignores correction will lead others away from life. Mishlei 10:17 + 261 Whoever respects the Lord will have a long life, but the life of an evil person will be cut short. Mishlei 10:27 + 249 When the wicked die, hope dies with them; their hope in riches will come to nothing. Mishlei 11:7 + 251 Kind people do themselves a favor, but cruel people bring trouble on themselves. Mishlei 11:17 + 248 Whoever looks for good will find kindness, but whoever looks for evil will find trouble. Mishlei 11:27 + 338 Wicked people die and they are no more, but a good person’s family continues. Mishlei 12:7 + 301 An honest witness tells the truth, but a dishonest witness tells lies. Mishlei 12:17 + 256 The lazy catch no food to cook, but a hard worker will have great wealth. Mishlei 12:27 + 281 Some people pretend to be rich but really have nothing. Others pretend to be poor but really are wealthy. Mishlei 13:7 + 230 A wicked messenger brings nothing but trouble, but a trustworthy one makes everything right. Mishlei 13:17 + 248 Stay away from fools, because they can not teach you anything. Proverbs 14:7 + 247 Someone with a quick temper does foolish things, but someone with understanding remains calm. Mishlei 14:17 + 286 Respect for the Lord gives life. It is like a fountain that can save people from death. Mishlei 14:27 + 242 Wise people use their words to spread knowledge, but there is no knowledge in the thoughts of fools. Mishlei 15:7 + 280 It is better to eat vegetables with those who love you than to eat meat with those who hate you. Mishlei 15:17 + 286 Greedy people bring trouble to their families, but the person who can not be paid to do wrong will live. Mishlei 15:27 + 274 When people live so that they please the Lord, even their enemies will make peace with them. Mishlei 16:7 + 306 Good people stay away from evil. By watching what they do, they protect their lives. Mishlei 16:17 + 248 Useless people make evil plans, and their words are like a burning fire. Mishlei 16:27 + 246 It is better to eat a dry crust of bread in peace than to have a feast where there is quarreling. Mishlei 17:1 + 303 A wise servant will rule over the master’s disgraceful child and will even inherit a share of what the master leaves his children. Mishlei 17:2 + 246 A hot furnace tests silver and gold, but the Lord tests hearts. Mishlei 17:3 + 231 Evil people listen to evil words. Liars pay attention to cruel words. Mishlei 17:4 + 252 Whoever mistreats the poor insults their Maker; whoever enjoys someone’s trouble will be punished. Mishlei 17:5 + 260 Old people are proud of their grandchildren, and children are proud of their parents. Mishlei 17:6 + 254 Fools should not be proud, and rulers should not be liars. Mishlei 17:7 + 258 Some people think they can pay others to do anything they ask. They think it will work every time. Mishlei 17:8 + 282 Whoever forgives someone’s sin makes a friend, but gossiping about the sin breaks up friendships. Mishlei 17:9 + 260 A wise person will learn more from a warning than a fool will learn from a hundred lashings. Mishlei 17:10 + 296 Disobedient people look only for trouble, so a cruel messenger will be sent against them. Mishlei 17:11 + 265 It is better to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than to meet a fool doing foolish things. Mishlei 17:12 + 270 Whoever gives evil in return for good will always have trouble at home. Mishlei 17:13 + 265 Starting a quarrel is like a leak in a dam, so stop it before a fight breaks out. Mishlei 17:14 + 272 The Lord hates both of these things: freeing the guilty and punishing the innocent. Mishlei 17:15 + 247 It won’t do a fool any good to try to buy wisdom, because he doesn’t have the ability to be wise. Mishlei 17:16 + 317 A friend loves you all the time, and a brother helps in time of trouble. Mishlei 17:17 + 266 It is not wise to promise to pay what your neighbor owes. Mishlei 17:18 + 284 Whoever loves to argue loves to sin. Whoever brags a lot is asking for trouble. Mishlei 17:19 + 282 A person with an evil heart will find no success, and the person whose words are evil will get into trouble. Mishlei 17:20 + 257 It is sad to have a foolish child; there is no joy in being the parent of a fool. Mishlei 17:21 + 222 A happy heart is like good medicine, but a broken spirit drains your strength. Mishlei 17:22 + 247 When the wicked accept money to do wrong there can be no justice. Mishlei 17:23 + 282 The person with understanding is always looking for wisdom, but the mind of a fool wanders everywhere. Mishlei 17:24 + 234 Foolish children make their father sad and cause their mother great sorrow. Mishlei 17:25 + 259 It is not good to punish the innocent or to beat leaders for being honest. Mishlei 17:26 + 260 The wise say very little, and those with understanding stay calm. Mishlei 17:27 + 245 Even fools seem to be wise if they keep quiet; if they don’t speak, they appear to understand. Mishlei 17:28 + 260 The words of fools will ruin them; their own words will trap them. Mishlei 18:7 + 285 The person who tells one side of a story seems right, until someone else comes and asks questions. Mishlei 18:17 + 299 Poor people’s relatives avoid them; even their friends stay far away. They run after them, begging, but they are gone. Mishlei 19:7 + 294 Being kind to the poor is like lending to the Lord; he will reward you for what you have done. Mishlei 19:17 + 292 Don’t stop listening to correction, my child, or you will forget what you have already learned. Mishlei 19:27 + 244 The good people who live honest lives will be a blessing to their children. Mishlei 20:7 + 233 Stolen food may taste sweet at first, but later it will feel like a mouth full of gravel. Mishlei 20:17 + 278 The Lord looks deep inside people and searches through their thoughts. Mishlei 20:27 + 256 The violence of the wicked will destroy them, because they refuse to do what is right. Proverbs 21:7 + 303 Whoever loves pleasure will become poor; whoever loves wine and perfume will never be rich. Mishlei 21:17 + 298 The Lord hates sacrifices brought by evil people, particularly when they offer them for the wrong reasons. Mishlei 21:27 + 286 The rich rule over the poor, and borrowers are servants to lenders. Mishlei 22:7 + 288 Listen carefully to what wise people say; pay attention to what I am teaching you. Mishlei 22:17 + 283 If you cannot pay the loan, your own bed may be taken right out from under you. Mishlei 22:27 + 294 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 + 248 Don’t envy sinners, but always respect the Lord. Mishlei 23:17 + 272 A prostitute is as dangerous as a deep pit, and an unfaithful wife is like a narrow well. Mishlei 23:27 + 261 Foolish people cannot understand wisdom. They have nothing to say in a discussion. Mishlei 24:7 + 285 Don’t be happy when your enemy is defeated; don’t be glad when he is overwhelmed. Mishlei 24:17 + 275 First, finish your outside work and prepare your fields. After that, you can build your house. Mishlei 24:27 + 273 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 + 254 Don’t go to your neighbor’s house too often; too much of you will make him hate you. Mishlei 25:17 + 271 It is not good to eat too much honey, nor does it bring you honor to brag about yourself. Mishlei 25:27 + 280 A wise saying spoken by a fool is as useless as the legs of a crippled person. Mishlei 26:7 + 261 Interfering in someone else’s quarrel as you pass by is like grabbing a dog by the ears. Mishlei 26:17 + 255 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 + 255 Don’t brag about tomorrow; you don’t know what may happen then. Mishlei 27:1 + 277 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 + 288 Stone is heavy, and sand is weighty, but a complaining fool is worse than either. Mishlei 27:3 + 287 Anger is cruel and destroys like a flood, but no one can put up with jealousy! Mishlei 27:4 + 310 It is better to correct someone openly than to have love and not show it. Mishlei 27:5 + 272 The slap of a friend can be trusted to help you, but the kisses of an enemy are nothing but lies. Mishlei 27:6 + 250 When you are full, not even honey tastes good, but when you are hungry, even something bitter tastes sweet. Mishlei 27:7 + 254 A person who leaves his home is like a bird that leaves its nest. Mishlei 27:8 + 237 The sweet smell of perfume and oils is pleasant, and so is good advice from a friend. Mishlei 27:9 + 278 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 + 252 Be wise, my child, and make me happy. Then I can respond to any insult. Mishlei 27:11 + 287 The wise see danger ahead and avoid it, but fools keep going and get into trouble. Mishlei 27:12 + 313 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 + 262 If you loudly greet your neighbor early in the morning, he will think of it as a curse. Mishlei 27:14 + 251 A quarreling wife is as bothersome as a continual dripping on a rainy day. Mishlei 27:15 + 275 Stopping her is like stopping the wind or trying to grab oil in your hand. Mishlei 27:16 + 264 As iron sharpens iron, so people can improve each other. Mishlei 27:17 + 262 Whoever tends a fig tree gets to eat its fruit, and whoever takes care of his master will receive honor. Mishlei 27:18 + 285 As water reflects your face, so your mind shows what kind of person you are. Mishlei 27:19 + 255 People will never stop dying and being destroyed, and they will never stop wanting more than they have. Mishlei 27:20 + 324 A hot furnace tests silver and gold, and people are tested by the praise they receive. Mishlei 27:21 + 305 Even if you ground up a foolish person like grain in a bowl, you couldn’t remove the foolishness. Mishlei 27:22 + 240 Be sure you know how your sheep are doing, and pay attention to the condition of your cattle. Mishlei 27:23 + 240 Riches will not go on forever, nor do governments go on forever. Mishlei 27:24 + 255 Bring in the hay, and let the new grass appear. Gather the grass from the hills. Mishlei 27:25 + 290 Make clothes from the lambs’ wool, and sell some goats to buy a field. Mishlei 27:26 + 286 There will be plenty of goat’s milk to feed you and your family and to make your servant girls healthy. Mishlei 27:27 + 306 Children who obey what they have been taught are wise, but friends of troublemakers disgrace their parents. Mishlei 28:7 + 261 Don’t help those who are guilty of murder; let them run until they die. Mishlei 28:17 + 274 Whoever gives to the poor will have everything he needs, but the one who ignores the poor will receive many curses. Mishlei 28:27 + 254 Good people care about justice for the poor, but the wicked are not concerned. Mishlei 29:7 + 273 Correct your children, and you will be proud; they will give you satisfaction. Mishlei 29:17 + 272 Good people hate those who are dishonest, and the wicked hate those who are honest. Mishlei 29:27 + 246 I ask two things from you, Lord. Don’t refuse me before I die. Mishlei 30:7 + 287 If you make fun of your father and refuse to obey your mother, the birds of the valley will peck out your eyes, and the vultures will eat them. Mishlei 30:17 + 232 Locusts have no king, but they all go forward in formation. Mishlei 30:27 + 246 Let them drink and forget their need and remember their misery no more. Mishlei 31:7 + 239 She does her work with energy, and her arms are strong. Mishlei 31:17 + 287 She watches over her family and never wastes her time. Mishlei 31:27 + 347 “Never before have Arabs made a capital in a kind of holy city. Take Saudi Arabia. They have Mecca, Medina, to build their capital there. They took a village called Riyadh and turned it into a capital. The Jordanians had Jerusalem, but they built a capital in Amman and not Jerusalem. I think the Arabs have — the Muslims have great rights in Jerusalem and they must be safeguarded to the tiniest little bit, as the rights of other Christians ... We were there a little earlier. In another four or five years, we celebrate 3,000 years since David the King came and made his capital of the Jewish Kingdom in Jerusalem. When we came back to a unified city after the Six-Day War, we were attacked, we drove them away, the city became one. We didn't touch any of the holy places. We gave freedom of access and freedom of prayer, of course, and freedom of education to every one of the many groups in the city.” Teddy Kollek; Mayor of Jerusalem (1967-1993) + 352 “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. + 283 Without Jerusalem, the land of Israel is as a body without a soul. Elhanan Leib Lewinsky; Hebrew writer & Zionist leader (1857-1910) + 344 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 + 386 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?

Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir + 309 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 + 268 The builder of Jerusalem is God, the outcast of Israel he will gather in... Praise God O Jerusalem, laud your God O Zion. Psalms 147:2-12 + 257 Arab sovereignty in Jerusalem just cannot be. This city will not be divided-not half and half, not 60-40, not 75-25, nothing. Golda Meir + 295 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 + 322 It goes without saying that in order for me to buy a teapot at the Oneida, Ltd., outlet store at the Sherrill Shopping Plaza, the second coming of Jesus Christ had to have taken place in the year 70 A.D. To the Oneida Community, 70 A.D., the year the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, marks the beginning of the New Jerusalem. Which means we’ve all been living in heaven on earth for nearly two thousand years. Everyone knows there is no marriage in heaven (though one suspects there’s no shortage of it in hell). So, the Oneidans said, we’re here in heaven, already saved and perfect in the eyes of God, so let’s move upstate and sleep around. (I’m paraphrasing.) Sarah Vowell, Assassination Vacation + 319 Christians have been beaten, whipped, starved, humiliated, mutilated, tortured, hung, burned at the stake, crucified, and fed to lions; yet two thousand years after a man called Jesus of Nazareth walked the streets of Jerusalem, 1,734 million people alive on this earth today call themselves by the ever-dividing, ever-uniting word: Christian. God is still scattering the seeds a few righteous renegades planted in a city called Antioch. Had they only known what they were starting. Beth Moore, To Live Is Christ + 316 All the rivers flow into the sea, yet the sea is not full; to the place where the rivers flow, there they repeatedly go. Kohelet 1:7 + 244 And I applied my heart to know wisdom and to know madness and folly; I know that this too is a frustration. Kohelet 1:17 + 266 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 + 286 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 + 299 A time to rend and a time to sew; a time to be silent and a time to speak. Kohelet 3:7 + 243 I said to myself, "God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time for every matter and for every deed there." Kohelet 3:17 + 266 And I returned and saw vanity under the sun. Kohelet 4:7 + 324 Watch your feet when you go to the House of God, and be ready to obey rather than fools should give sacrifice, for they know not that they do evil. Kohelet 4:17 + 289 If you see oppression of the poor and deprivation of justice and righteousness in the province, wonder not about the matter, for the Highest over the high waits, and there are higher ones over them. Kohelet 5:7 + 287 Behold what I saw; it is good, yea, it is beautiful, to eat and drink and to experience goodness with all his toil that he toils under the sun, the number of the days of his life that God gave him, for that is his portion. Kohelet 5:17 + 273 All of a person's toil is for his mouth, and is the appetite not yet sated? Kohelet 6:7 + 280 A good name is better than good oil, and the day of death than the day of one's birth. Kohelet 7:1 + 285 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 + 284 Vexation is better than laughter, for with a stern countenance the heart will rejoice. Kohelet 7:3 + 284 The heart of the wise is in a house of mourning, whereas the heart of the fools is in a house of joy. Kohelet 7:4 + 244 It is better to hear the rebuke of a wise man than for a man to hear the song of the fools. Kohelet 7:5 + 292 For as the sound of the thorns under the pot, so is the laughter of the fool, and this too is vanity. Kohelet 7:6 + 343 For the taunt makes the wise foolish, and it destroys the understanding, which is a gift. Kohelet 7:7 + 240 The end of a thing is better than its beginning; better the patient in spirit than the haughty in spirit. Kohelet 7:8 + 275 Be not hasty with your spirit to become wroth, for wrath lies in the bosom of fools. Kohelet 7:9 + 255 Do not say, "How was it that the former days were better than these?" For not out of wisdom have you asked concerning this. Kohelet 7:10 + 291 Wisdom is good with a heritage, and it is a profit to those who see the sun. Kohelet 7:11 + 276 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 + 255 See God's work, for who can straighten out what He made crooked? Kohelet 7:13 + 297 On a day of good, be among the good, and on a day of adversity, ponder; God has made one corresponding to the other, to the end that man will find nothing after Him. Kohelet 7:14 + 266 I have seen everything in the days of my vanity; there is a righteous man who perishes in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man who lives long in his wickedness. Kohelet 7:15 + 278 Be not overly righteous, and be not overly wise; why should you bring desolation upon yourself? Kohelet 7:16 + 262 Be not overly wicked, and be not a fool; why should you die before your time? Kohelet 7:17 + 290 It is good that you should take hold of this, and also from this you shall not withdraw your hand, for he who fears God will discharge himself of them all. Kohelet 7:18 + 320 Wisdom affords strength to the wise more than ten rulers who were in the city. Kohelet 7:19 + 249 For there is no righteous man on earth who does good and sins not. Kohelet 7:20 + 254 You know that many times you have insulted others. Ecclesiastes 7:22 + 321 For your heart knows that many times you too cursed others. Kohelet 7:22 + 264 All this I tested with wisdom; I said, "I will become wise," but it was far from me. Kohelet 7:23 + 246 What was is far off, and it is very deep, who can find it? Kohelet 7:24 + 302 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 + 303 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 + 271 See, this I have found, said Koheleth, adding one to another to find out the account. Kohelet 7:27 + 253 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 + 253 See, only this one have I found, for God made man straight, but they sought many intrigues. Kohelet 7:29 + 256 For he knows not what will be, for how it will be, who will tell him? Kohelet 8:7 + 294 And I saw all the deed of God, for a person will not be able to fathom the deed that is done under the sun, because though a man toils to seek, he will not fathom it, and even if the wise man claims to know it, he will be unable to fathom it. Kohelet 8:17 + 274 Go, eat your bread joyfully and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already accepted your deeds. Kohelet 9:7 + 290 The words of the wise are heard when spoken softly, more than the shout of a ruler of fools. Kohelet 9:17 + 229 I saw slaves on horses and princes walking like slaves on the ground. Kohelet 10:7 + 267 Fortunate are you, O land, whose king is the son of nobles, and your princes eat at the proper time, in might and not in drinking. Kohelet 10:17 + 264 And the light is sweet, and it is good for the eyes to see the sun. Kohelet 11:7 + 267 And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God, Who gave it. Kohelet 12:7 + 303 I was in the parking lot, with the key in the car, and I thought to myself, If this is my last night on earth, would I rather spend it at a business meeting or with this woman? I ran across the parking lot, asked her if she'd have dinner with me. She said yes, we walked into town and we've been together ever since. Steve Jobs — On meeting his wife, Laurene, The New York Times, 1997 + 369 Apple has some tremendous assets, but I believe without some attention, the company could, could, could — I'm searching for the right word — could, could die.

Steve Jobs — Introducing the iPhone, Macword2007 + 315 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.

Steve Jobs — On the state of Apple just before his return, BusinessWeek, 1997 + 326 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 + 277 You've got to start with the customer experience and work back toward the technology — not the other way around. Steve Jobs — Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, 1997 + 308 I told him I believed every word of what I'd said but that I never should have said it in public. Steve Jobs — On apologizing to Bill Gates for disparaging Microsoft in a documentary, The New York Times. 1997 + 306 With our technology, with objects, literally three people in a garage can blow away what 200 people at Microsoft can do.

All Things Digital, 2007 + 293 I think humans are basically tool builders, and the computer is the most remarkable tool we've ever built. The big insight a lot of us had in the 1970s had to do with the importance of putting that tool in the hands of individuals. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989 + 280 My position coming back to Apple was that our industry was in a coma. It reminded me of Detroit in the 70s, when American cars were boats on wheels. Steve Jobs + 274 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 + 304 That's why I love what we do — we make these tools and they're constantly surprising us. Steve Jobs — All Things Digital, 2007 + 314 It took us three years to build the NeXT computer. If we'd given customers what they said they wanted, we'd have built a computer they'd have been happy with a year after we spoke to them — not something they'd want now. That same innovation, that same engineering, that same talent applied where we don't run up against the fact that Microsoft got this monopoly, and boom! We have 75 per cent market share.

Steve Jobs — Apple shareholder meeting, 2007, on his annual salary of $1 + 307 I feel like somebody just punched me in the stomach and knocked all my wind out. I'm only 30 years old and I want to have a chance to continue creating things. I know I've got at least one more great computer in me. And Apple is not going to give me a chance to do that. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1987 + 230 Sleep optional but not recommended. CS107 student + 316 The joke about SAP has always been, it's making '50s German manufacturing methodology, implemented in 1960s software technology, delivered to 1970-style manufacturing organizations, like, it's really - yeah, the incumbency - they are still the lingering hangover from the dot-com crash. Marc Andreessen + 314 Facebook generated $3.7B in 2011. Mark Zuckerberg + 337 Tell me, you whom I love, where do you feed your sheep? Where do you let them rest at noon?

Song of Solomon 1:17 + 370 Women of Jerusalem, promise me by the gazelles and the deer not to awaken or excite my feelings of love until it is ready. Song of Solomon 2:7 + 336 Until the day breathes and the shadows flee, turn, my beloved, be like a gazelle or a young stag on cleft mountains. Song of Solomon 2:17 + 329 Look, it’s Solomon’s couch with sixty soldiers around it, the finest soldiers of Israel. Song of Solomon 3:7 + 310 My darling, everything about you is beautiful, and there is nothing at all wrong with you. Song of Solomon 4:7 + 300 The watchmen found me as they patrolled the city. They hit me and hurt me; the guards on the wall took away my veil. Song of Solomon 5:7 + 295 Your cheeks behind your veil are like slices of a pomegranate. Song of Solomon 6:7 + 353 Your feet are beautiful in sandals, you daughter of a prince. Your round thighs are like jewels shaped by an artist. Song of Solomon 7:1 + 319 Your navel is like a round drinking cup always filled with wine. Your stomach is like a pile of wheat surrounded with lilies. Song of Solomon 7:2 + 276 Your breasts are like two fawns, like twins of a gazelle. Song of Solomon 7:3 + 303 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are like the pools in Heshbon near the gate of Bath Rabbim. Your nose is like the mountain of Lebanon that looks down on Damascus. Song of Solomon 7:4 + 316 Your head is like Mount Carmel, and your hair is like purple cloth; the king is captured in its folds. Song of Solomon 7:5 + 321 You are beautiful and pleasant; my love, you are full of delights. Song of Solomon 7:6 + 285 You are tall like a palm tree, and your breasts are like its bunches of fruit. Song of Solomon 7:7 + 330 I said, “I will climb up the palm tree and take hold of its fruit.” Let your breasts be like bunches of grapes, the smell of your breath like apples, Song of Solomon 7:8 + 334 And your mouth like the best wine. Let this wine go down sweetly for my lover; may it flow gently past the lips and teeth. Song of Solomon 7:9 + 339 I belong to my lover, and he desires only me. Song of Solomon 7:10 + 375 Come, my lover, let’s go out into the country and spend the night in the fields. Song of Solomon 7:11 + 332 Let’s go early to the vineyards and see if the buds are on the vines. Let’s see if the blossoms have already opened and if the pomegranates have bloomed. There I will give you my love. Song of Solomon 7:12 + 367 The mandrake flowers give their sweet smell, and all the best fruits are at our gates. I have saved them for you, my lover, the old delights and the new. Song of Solomon 7:13 + 362 Even much water cannot put out the flame of love; floods cannot drown love. If a man offered everything in his house for love, people would totally reject it. Song of Solomon 8:7 + 295 The oldest tales of Amaterasu come from the ca. 680 AD Kojiki and ca. 720 AD Nihon Shoki, the oldest records of Japanese history. + 366 The evidence from anthropology concurs with history in refuting the popular belief in a Jewish race descended from the biblical tribe. From the anthropologist's point of view, two groups of facts militate against this belief: the wide diversity of Jews with regard to physical characteristics, and their similarity to the Gentile population amidst whom they live. Both are reflected in the statistics about bodily height, cranial index, blood-groups, hair and eye colour, etc. Whichever of these anthropological criteria is taken as an indicator, it shows a greater similarity between Jews and their Gentile host-nation than between Jews living in different countries. ...The obvious biological explanation for both phenomena is miscegenation, which took different forms in different historical situations: intermarriage, large-scale proselytizing, rape as a constant (legalized or tolerated) accompaniment of war and pogrom. The Thirteenth Tribe (1976). Arthur Koestler + 261 And God made the expanse and it separated between the water that was below the expanse and the water that was above the expanse, and it was so. Bereshit 1:7 + 235 God placed them in the heavenly sky to shine on the earth, Bereshit 1:17 + 242 God thus created man with His image. In the image of God, He created him, male and female He created them. Bereshit 1:27 + 224 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 + 213 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 + 222 The eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized that they were naked. They sewed together fig leaves, and made themselves loincloths. Bereshit 3:7 + 259 To Adam He said, You listened to your wife, and ate from the tree regarding which I specifically gave you orders, saying, Do not eat from it. The ground will therefore be cursed because of you. You will derive food from it with anguish all the days of your life. Bereshit 3:17 + 197 If you do good, will there not be special privilege? And if you do not do good, sin is crouching at the door. It lusts after you, but you can dominate it. Bereshit 4:7 + 218 Cain knew his wife. She conceived and gave birth to Enoch. Cain was building a city, and he named the city Enoch, after his son. Bereshit 4:17 + 205 Seth lived 807 years after he had Enosh, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:7 + 181 Kenan lived 70 years, and he had a son Mahalalel. Bereshit 5:12 + 179 All of Mahalalel's days were 895 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:17 + 173 Methuselah lived 187 years, and he had a son Lemekh. Bereshit 5:25 + 175 Methuselah lived 782 years after he had Lemekh, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:26 + 191 All of Methuselah's days were 969 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:27 + 194 All of Lemekh's days were 777 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:31 + 227 God said, I will obliterate humanity that I have created from the face of the earth - man, livestock, land animals, and birds of the sky. I regret that I created them. Bereshit 6:7 + 218 And I, behold I am bringing the flood, water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which there is the spirit of life, from beneath the heavens; all that is upon the earth will perish. Bereshit 6:17 + 248 And the Lord said to Noah, Come into the ark, you and all your household, for it is you that I have seen as a righteous man before Me in this generation. Bereshit 7:1 + 219 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 + 200 Also, of the fowl of the heavens, seven pairs, male and female, to keep seed alive on the face of the earth. Bereshit 7:3 + 223 For in another seven days, I will make it rain upon the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will blot out all beings that I have made, off the face of the earth. Bereshit 7:4 + 201 And Noah did, according to all that the Lord had commanded him. Bereshit 7:5 + 219 And Noah was six hundred years old, and the flood came about, water upon the earth. Bereshit 7:6 + 212 And Noah went in and his sons and his wife and his son's wives with him into the ark because of the flood waters. Bereshit 7:7 + 195 Of the clean beasts and of the beasts that are not clean, and of the fowl, and all that creeps upon the earth. Bereshit 7:8 + 236 Two by two they came to Noah to the ark, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. Bereshit 7:9 + 188 And it came to pass after the seven days, that the flood waters were upon the earth. Bereshit 7:10 + 243 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on this day, all the springs of the great deep were split, and the windows of the heavens opened up. Bereshit 7:11 + 286 And the rain was upon the earth for forty days and forty nights. Bereshit 7:12 + 186 On this very day, Noah came, and Shem and Ham and Japheth, Noah's sons, and Noah's wife and his sons three wives with them, into the ark. Bereshit 7:13 + 182 They, and every beast after its kind, and every domestic animal after its kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every fowl after its kind, every bird of every wing. Bereshit 7:14 + 201 And they came to Noah to the ark, two by two of all flesh in which there is the spirit of life. Bereshit 7:15 + 181 And those who came male and female of all flesh came, as God had commanded him, and the Lord shut him in. Bereshit 7:16 + 192 Now the Flood was forty days upon the earth, and the waters increased, and they lifted the ark, and it rose off the earth. Bereshit 7:17 + 183 And the waters became powerful, and they increased very much upon the earth, and the ark moved upon the waters. Bereshit 7:18 + 200 And the waters became exceedingly powerful upon the earth, and all the lofty mountains that were under the heavens were covered up. Bereshit 7:19 + 185 Fifteen cubits above did the waters prevail, and the mountains were covered up. Bereshit 7:20 + 199 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 + 209 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 + 253 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 + 198 And the water prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days. Bereshit 7:24 + 200 And he sent forth the raven, and it went out, back and forth until the waters dried up off the earth. Bereshit 8:7 + 221 Every living thing that is with you of all flesh, of fowl, and of animals and of all the creeping things that creep on the earth, bring out with you, and they shall swarm upon the earth, and they shall be fruitful and multiply upon the earth. Bereshit 8:17 + 214 And you, be fruitful and multiply; swarm upon the earth and multiply thereon. Bereshit 9:7 + 236 And God said to Noah: This is the sign of the covenant that I have set up, between Myself and between all flesh that is on the earth. Bereshit 9:17 + 211 May God expand Japheth, and may He dwell in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be a slave to them. Bereshit 9:27 + 206 And the sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah and Sabta and Raamah and Sabtecha, and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. Bereshit 10:7 + 176 And the Hivvites and the Arkites and the Sinites. Bereshit 10:17 + 186 And Hadoram and Uzal and Diklah. Bereshit 10:27 + 209 Come, let us descend and confuse their language, so that one will not understand the language of his companion. Bereshit 11:7 + 238 And Eber lived after he had begotten Peleg, four hundred and thirty years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:17 + 197 And these are the generations of Terah: Terah begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran, and Haran begot Lot. Bereshit 11:27 + 200 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 + 213 And the Lord plagued Pharaoh with great plagues as well as his household, on account of Sarai, Abram's wife. Bereshit 12:17 + 223 And there was a quarrel between the herdsmen of Abram's cattle and between the herdsmen of Lot's cattle, and the Canaanites and the Perizzites were then dwelling in the land. Bereshit 13:7 + 190 Rise, walk in the land, to its length and to its breadth, for I will give it to you. Bereshit 13:17 + 236 And they returned and came to Ein Mishpat, which is Kadesh, and they smote the entire field of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites who dwelt in Hazezon Tamar. Bereshit 14:7 + 309 And the king of Sodom came out toward him, after his return from smiting Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, to the valley of Shaveh, which is the valley of the king. Bereshit 14:17 + 197 And He said to him, I am the Lord, Who brought you forth from Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it. Bereshit 15:7 + 200 Now it came to pass that the sun had set, and it was dark, and behold, a smoking furnace and a fire brand, which passed between these parts. Bereshit 15:17 + 195 And an angel of the Lord found her by a water fountain in the desert, by the fountain on the road to Shur. Bereshit 16:7 + 209 And Abram was ninety-nine years old, and God appeared to Abram, and He said to him, I am the Almighty God; walk before Me and be perfect. Bereshit 17:1 + 206 And I will place My covenant between Me and between you, and I will multiply you very greatly. Bereshit 17:2 + 157 And Abram fell upon his face, and God spoke with him, saying, Bereshit 17:3 + 202 As for Me, behold My covenant is with you, and you shall become the father of a multitude of nations. Bereshit 17:4 + 230 And your name shall no longer be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. Bereshit 17:5 + 199 And I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings will emerge from you. Bereshit 17:6 + 221 And I will establish My covenant between Me and between you and between your seed after you throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant, to be to you for a God and to your seed after you. Bereshit 17:7 + 216 And I will give you and your seed after you the land of your sojournings, the entire land of Canaan for an everlasting possession, and I will be to them for a God. Bereshit 17:8 + 221 And God said to Abraham, And you shall keep My covenant, you and your seed after you throughout their generations. Bereshit 17:9 + 230 This is My covenant, which you shall observe between Me and between you and between your seed after you, that every male among you be circumcised. Bereshit 17:10 + 200 And you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall be as the sign of a covenant between Me and between you. Bereshit 17:11 + 246 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 + 236 Those born in the house and those purchased for money shall be circumcised, and My covenant shall be in your flesh as an everlasting covenant. Bereshit 17:13 + 232 And an uncircumcised male, who will not circumcise the flesh of his foreskin-that soul will be cut off from its people; he has broken My covenant. Bereshit 17:14 + 218 And God said to Abraham, Your wife Sarai-you shall not call her name Sarai, for Sarah is her name. Bereshit 17:15 + 198 And I will bless her, and I will give you a son from her, and I will bless her, and she will become a mother of nations; kings of nations will be from her. Bereshit 17:16 + 236 And Abraham fell on his face and rejoiced, and he said to himself, Will a child be born to one who is a hundred years old, and will Sarah, who is ninety years old, give birth? Bereshit 17:17 + 195 And Abraham said to God, If only Ishmael will live before You! Bereshit 17:18 + 244 And God said, Indeed, your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you shall name him Isaac, and I will establish My covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his seed after him. Bereshit 17:19 + 209 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 + 225 But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this time next year. Bereshit 17:21 + 208 And He finished speaking with him, and God went up from above Abraham. Bereshit 17:22 + 252 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 + 223 And Abraham was ninety-nine years old, when he was circumcised of the flesh of his foreskin. Bereshit 17:24 + 218 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised of the flesh of his foreskin. Bereshit 17:25 + 194 On that very day, Abraham was circumcised, and so was Ishmael his son. Bereshit 17:26 + 232 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 + 219 And to the cattle did Abraham run, and he took a calf, tender and good, and he gave it to the youth, and he hastened to prepare it. Bereshit 18:7 + 206 And the Lord said, Shall I conceal from Abraham what I am doing? Bereshit 18:17 + 210 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now I have commenced to speak to the Lord, although I am dust and ashes. Bereshit 18:27 + 189 And he said, My brethren, please do not do evil. Bereshit 19:7 + 215 And it came to pass, when they took them outside, that he said, Flee for your life, do not look behind you, and do not stand in the entire plain. Flee to the mountain, lest you perish. Bereshit 19:17 + 181 And Abraham arose early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. Bereshit 19:27 + 182 And the elder bore a son, and she named him Moab; he is the father of Moab until this day. Bereshit 19:37 + 210 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 + 188 And Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his handmaids, and they gave birth. Bereshit 20:17 + 193 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 + 226 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 + 183 And Abraham took flocks and cattle, and gave them to Abimelech, and they both formed a covenant. Bereshit 21:27 + 226 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 + 204 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 + 196 And Abraham arose and prostrated himself to the people of the land, to the sons of Heth. Bereshit 23:7 + 234 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 + 253 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 + 205 And the servant ran toward her, and he said, Please let me sip a little water from your pitcher. Bereshit 24:17 + 230 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 + 229 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 + 235 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 + 187 And they said, Let us call the maiden and ask her. Bereshit 24:57 + 236 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 + 201 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 + 212 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 + 227 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 + 243 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 + 201 And Isaac went away from there, and he encamped in the valley of Gerar and dwelt there. Bereshit 26:17 + 212 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 + 230 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 + 192 And he said, Behold now, I have grown old; I do not know the day of my death. Bereshit 27:2 + 209 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 + 190 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 + 242 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 + 226 And Rebecca said to Jacob her son, saying, Behold I have heard your father speaking to Esau your brother, saying, Bereshit 27:6 + 195 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 + 197 And now my son, hearken to my voice, to what I am commanding you. Bereshit 27:8 + 206 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 + 182 And you shall bring them to your father that he may eat, in order that he bless you before his death. Bereshit 27:10 + 212 And Jacob said to Rebecca his mother, Behold, my brother Esau is a hairy man, whereas I am a smooth man. Bereshit 27:11 + 217 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 + 219 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 + 191 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 + 219 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 + 199 And the hides of the kids she put on his hands and on the smoothness of his neck. Bereshit 27:16 + 195 And she gave the tasty foods and the bread that she had made, into the hand of Jacob her son. Bereshit 27:17 + 191 And he came to his father and said, My father! And he said, Here I am. Who are you, my son? Bereshit 27:18 + 244 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 + 308 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 + 253 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 + 233 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 + 209 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 + 179 And he said, Are you indeed my son Esau? And he said, I am. Bereshit 27:24 + 199 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 + 221 And his father Isaac said to him, Please come closer and kiss me, my son. Bereshit 27:26 + 214 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 + 222 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 + 208 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 + 235 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 + 222 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 + 209 And his father Isaac said to him, Who are you? And he said, I am your son, your firstborn, Esau. Bereshit 27:32 + 283 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 + 208 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 + 200 And he said, Your brother came with cunning and took your blessing. Bereshit 27:35 + 243 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 + 250 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 + 189 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 + 235 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 + 219 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 + 243 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 + 229 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 + 196 And now, my son, hearken to my voice, and arise, flee to my brother Laban, to Haran. Bereshit 27:43 + 202 And you shall dwell with him for a few days until your brother's wrath has subsided. Bereshit 27:44 + 210 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 + 247 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 + 195 And Jacob listened to his father and his mother, and he went to Padan aram. Bereshit 28:7 + 257 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 + 206 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 + 184 Leah's eyes were tender, but Rachel had beautiful features and a beautiful complexion. Bereshit 29:17 + 210 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 + 222 And Bilhah, Rachel's maidservant, conceived again and bore Jacob a second son. Bereshit 30:7 + 208 And God hearkened to Leah, and she conceived and bore Jacob a fifth son. Bereshit 30:17 + 205 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 + 236 And Jacob took himself moist rods of trembling poplar and hazelnut, and chestnut, and he peeled white streaks upon them, baring the white that was on the rods. Bereshit 30:37 + 213 But your father mocked me and changed my wages ten times, but God did not permit him to harm me. Bereshit 31:7 + 209 So Jacob rose, and he lifted up his sons and his wives upon the camels. Bereshit 31:17 + 235 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 + 312 For you have felt about all my things. What have you found of all the utensils of your house? Put it here, in the presence of my kinsmen and your kinsmen, and let them decide between the two of us. Bereshit 31:37 + 201 And Laban called it Yegar Sahadutha, but Jacob called it Gal ed. Bereshit 31:47 + 196 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 + 190 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 + 207 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 + 166 And Leah and her children drew near and prostrated themselves, and after them, Joseph and Rachel drew near and prostrated themselves. Bereshit 33:7 + 216 And Jacob traveled to Succoth and built himself a house, and for his cattle he made booths; therefore he named the place Succoth. Bereshit 33:17 + 228 And Jacob's sons had come from the field when they heard, and the men were grieved, and they burned fiercely, because he had committed a scandalous act in Israel, to lie with a daughter of Jacob, and such ought not to be done. Bereshit 34:7 + 177 But if you do not listen to us to be circumcised, we will take our daughter and go. Bereshit 34:17 + 179 Jacob's sons came upon the slain and plundered the city that had defiled their sister. Bereshit 34:27 + 189 He built there an altar, and he called the place El Beth el, for there God had been revealed to him when he fled from before his brother Esau. Bereshit 35:7 + 195 It came to pass when she had such difficulty giving birth, that the midwife said to her, "Do not be afraid, for this one, too, is a son for you." Bereshit 35:17 + 190 And Jacob came to his father Isaac, to Mamre, Kiriath arba, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac dwelt. Bereshit 35:27 + 202 For their possessions were too numerous for them to dwell together, and the land of their sojournings could not support them because of their livestock. Bereshit 36:7 + 184 And these are the sons of Reuel the son of Esau: Chief Nahath, Chief Zerah, Chief Shammah, and Chief Mizzah. These are the chieftains of Reuel in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Basemath, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:17 + 161 These are the sons of Ezer: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan. Bereshit 36:27 + 152 Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead. Bereshit 36:37 + 180 Jacob dwelt in the land of his father's sojournings, in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 37:1 + 233 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 + 229 And Israel loved Joseph more than all his sons, because he was a son of his old age; and he made him a fine woolen coat. Bereshit 37:3 + 228 And his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, so they hated him, and they could not speak with him peacefully. Bereshit 37:4 + 176 And Joseph dreamed a dream and told his brothers, and they continued to hate him. Bereshit 37:5 + 166 And he said to them, Listen now to this dream, which I have dreamed: Bereshit 37:6 + 198 Behold, we were binding sheaves in the midst of the field, and behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright, and behold, your sheaves encircled it and prostrated themselves to my sheaf. Bereshit 37:7 + 167 So his brothers said to him, Will you reign over us, or will you govern us? And they continued further to hate him on account of his dreams and on account of his words. Bereshit 37:8 + 209 And he again dreamed another dream, and he related it to his brothers, and he said, Behold, I have dreamed another dream, and behold, the sun, the moon, and eleven stars were prostrating themselves to me. Bereshit 37:9 + 219 And he told it to his father and to his brothers, and his father rebuked him and said to him, "What is this dream that you have dreamed? Will we come I, your mother, and your brothers to prostrate ourselves to you to the ground?" Bereshit 37:10 + 147 So his brothers envied him, but his father awaited the matter. Bereshit 37:11 + 167 And his brothers went to pasture their father's flocks in Shechem. Bereshit 37:12 + 212 And Israel said to Joseph, Are your brothers not pasturing in Shechem? Come, and I will send you to them. And he said to him, Here I am. Bereshit 37:13 + 194 So he said to him, Go now and see to your brothers' welfare and the welfare of the flocks, and bring me back word. So he sent him from the valley of Hebron, and he came to Shechem. Bereshit 37:14 + 181 Then a man found him, and behold, he was straying in the field, and the man asked him, saying, What are you looking for? Bereshit 37:15 + 183 And he said, I am looking for my brothers. Tell me now, where are they pasturing? Bereshit 37:16 + 196 And the man said, They have traveled away from here, for I overheard them say, Let us go to Dothan. So Joseph went after his brothers, and he found them in Dothan. Bereshit 37:17 + 190 And they saw him from afar, and when he had not yet drawn near to them, they plotted against him to put him to death. Bereshit 37:18 + 164 So they said one to the other, Behold, that dreamer is coming. Bereshit 37:19 + 183 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 + 184 But Reuben heard, and he saved him from their hands, and he said, Let us not deal him a deadly blow. Bereshit 37:21 + 202 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 + 194 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 + 175 And they took him and cast him into the pit; now the pit was empty there was no water in it. Bereshit 37:24 + 220 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 + 164 And Judah said to his brothers, What is the gain if we slay our brother and cover up his blood? Bereshit 37:26 + 204 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 + 219 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 + 172 And Reuben returned to the pit, and behold, Joseph was not in the pit; so he rent his garments. Bereshit 37:29 + 162 And he returned to his brothers and said, The boy is gone! And I where will I go? Bereshit 37:30 + 153 And they took Joseph's coat, and they slaughtered a kid, and they dipped the coat in the blood. Bereshit 37:31 + 188 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 + 188 He recognized it, and he said, "It is my son's coat; a wild beast has devoured him; Joseph has surely been torn up." Bereshit 37:33 + 221 And Jacob rent his garments, and he put sackcloth on his loins, and he mourned for his son many days. Bereshit 37:34 + 210 And all his sons and all his daughters arose to console him, but he refused to be consoled, for he said, Because I will descend on account of my son as a mourner to the grave; and his father wept for him. Bereshit 37:35 + 169 And the Midianites sold him to Egypt, to Potiphar, Pharaoh's chamberlain, chief of the slaughterers. Bereshit 37:36 + 162 Now Er, Judah's firstborn, was evil in the eyes of the Lord, and the Lord put him to death. Bereshit 38:7 + 197 And he said, I will send a kid from the herd, and she said, Only if you give me a pledge until you send it. Bereshit 38:17 + 183 And it came about at the time she was giving birth, that behold, there were twins in her womb. Bereshit 38:27 + 200 Now it came to pass after these events that his master's wife lifted up her eyes to Joseph, and she said, Lie with me. Bereshit 39:7 + 164 And she told him the same thing, saying, "The Hebrew slave that you brought to us came to me to mock me. Bereshit 39:17 + 216 And he asked Pharaoh's chamberlains who were with him in the prison of his master's house, saying, Why are your faces sad today? Bereshit 40:7 + 191 And in the topmost basket were all kinds of Pharaoh's food, the work of a baker, and the birds were eating them from the basket atop my head. Bereshit 40:17 + 185 And the thin ears of grain swallowed up the seven healthy and full ears of grain; then Pharaoh awoke, and behold, a dream. Bereshit 41:7 + 168 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, In my dream, behold, I was standing on the bank of the Nile. Bereshit 41:17 + 197 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 + 191 The matter pleased Pharaoh and all his servants. Bereshit 41:37 + 183 And in the seven years of plenty, the inhabitants of the land gathered food by handfuls. Bereshit 41:47 + 169 And all the inhabitants of the land came to Egypt to Joseph to purchase, for the famine had intensified in the entire land. Bereshit 41:57 + 195 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 + 138 And he put them in prison for three days. Bereshit 42:17 + 187 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 + 191 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 They said, The man asked about us and about our family, saying, Is your father still alive? Do you have a brother? And we told him according to these words. Could we have known that he would say, Bring your brother down? Bereshit 43:7 + 155 And the man did as Joseph had said, and the man brought the men into Joseph's house. Bereshit 43:17 + 183 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 + 183 And they said to him, Why should my master say such words as these? Far be it from your servants to do a thing like this! Bereshit 44:7 + 190 But he said, Far be it from me to do this! The man in whose possession the goblet was found he shall be my slave, but as for you go up in peace to your father. Bereshit 44:17 + 176 And your servant, my father, said to us, 'You know that my wife bore me two children. Bereshit 44:27 + 168 And God sent me before you to make for you a remnant in the land, and to preserve it for you for a great deliverance. Bereshit 45:7 + 177 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Tell your brothers, Do this load up your beasts and go, enter the land of Canaan. Bereshit 45:17 + 198 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 + 157 His sons and his sons' sons with him, his daughters and his sons' daughters and all his descendants he brought with him to Egypt. Bereshit 46:7 + 188 And the sons of Asher were Imnah, Ishvah, Ishvi, and Briah, and Serah, their sister; and the sons of Briah were Heber and Malkiel. Bereshit 46:17 + 190 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 + 180 Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and he said, "My father and my brothers and their flocks and their cattle and all that is theirs, have come from the land of Canaan, and behold, they are in the land of Goshen." Bereshit 47:1 + 165 And from among his brothers he took five men, and he presented them before Pharaoh. Bereshit 47:2 + 179 And Pharaoh said to his brothers, "What is your occupation?" And they said to Pharaoh, "Your servants are shepherds, both we and our forefathers." Bereshit 47:3 + 198 And they said to Pharaoh, We have come to sojourn in the land, for your servants flocks have no pasture, for the famine is severe in the land of Canaan. Now, please let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen. Bereshit 47:4 + 163 And Pharaoh spoke to Joseph, saying, Your father and your brothers have come to you. Bereshit 47:5 + 254 The land of Egypt is open before you; in the best of the land settle your father and your brothers. Let them dwell in the land of Goshen, and if you know that there are capable men among them, make them livestock officers over what is mine. Bereshit 47:6 + 182 So Joseph brought his father Jacob and stood him before Pharaoh, and Jacob greeted Pharaoh. Bereshit 47:7 + 196 And Pharaoh said to Jacob, How many are the days of the years of your life? Bereshit 47:8 + 209 And Jacob said to Pharaoh, The days of the years of my sojournings are one hundred thirty years. The days of the years of my life have been few and miserable, and they have not reached the days of the years of the lives of my forefathers in the days of their sojournings. Bereshit 47:9 + 182 So Jacob blessed Pharaoh and left Pharaoh's presence. Bereshit 47:10 + 182 Joseph settled his father and his brothers, and he gave them property in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had mandated. Bereshit 47:11 + 180 And Joseph sustained his father and his brothers and his father's entire household with bread according to the young children. Bereshit 47:12 + 170 Now there was no food in the entire land, for the famine had grown exceedingly severe, and the land of Egypt and the land of Canaan were exhausted because of the famine. Bereshit 47:13 + 174 And Joseph collected all the money that was found in the land of Egypt and in the land of Canaan with the grain that they were buying, and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house. Bereshit 47:14 + 200 Now the money was depleted from the land of Egypt and from the land of Canaan, and all the Egyptians came to Joseph, saying, "Give us food; why should we die in your presence, since the money has been used up?" Bereshit 47:15 + 172 And Joseph said, Give me your livestock, and I will give you food in return for your livestock, if the money has been used up. Bereshit 47:16 + 185 So they brought their livestock to Joseph, and Joseph gave them food in return for the horses and for the livestock in flocks and in cattle and in donkeys, and he provided them with food in return for all their livestock in that year. Bereshit 47:17 + 219 That year ended, and they came to him in the second year, and they said to him, We will not hide from my lord, for insofar as the money and the property in animals have been forfeited to my lord, nothing remains before my lord, except our bodies and our farmland. Bereshit 47:18 + 214 Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our farmland? Buy us and our farmland for food, so that we and our farmland will be slaves to Pharaoh, and give us seed, so that we live and not die, and the soil will not lie fallow." Bereshit 47:19 + 176 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 + 143 And he transferred the populace to the cities, from one end of the boundary of Egypt to its other end. Bereshit 47:21 + 183 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 + 188 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 + 210 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 + 185 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 + 210 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 + 207 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 + 228 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 + 222 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 + 194 I will lie with my forefathers, and you shall carry me out of Egypt, and you shall bury me in their grave." And he said, "I will do as you say." Bereshit 47:30 + 167 And he said, "Swear to me. " So he swore to him, and Israel prostrated himself on the head of the bed. Bereshit 47:31 + 204 As for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died to me in the land of Canaan on the way, when there was still a stretch of land to come to Ephrath, and I buried her there on the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem." Bereshit 48:7 + 204 And Joseph saw that his father was placing his right hand on Ephraim's head, and it displeased him. So he held up his father's hand to remove it from upon Ephraim's head to place it on Manasseh's head. Bereshit 48:17 + 210 Cursed be their wrath for it is mighty, and their anger because it is harsh. I will separate them throughout Jacob, and I will scatter them throughout Israel. Bereshit 49:7 + 169 Dan will be a serpent on the road, a viper on the path, which bites the horse's heels, so its rider falls backwards. Bereshit 49:17 + 168 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 + 180 So Joseph went up to bury his father, and all Pharaoh's servants, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt went up with him, Bereshit 50:7 + 248 So shall you say to Joseph, Please, forgive now your brothers transgression and their sin, for they did evil to you. Now please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father. Joseph wept when they spoke to him. Bereshit 50:17 + 212 The children of Israel were fruitful and swarmed and increased and became very very strong, and the land became filled with them. Shemot 1:7 + 207 The midwives, however, feared God; so they did not do as the king of Egypt had spoken to them, but they enabled the boys to live. Shemot 1:17 + 186 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 + 196 But the shepherds came and drove them away; so Moses arose and rescued them and watered their flocks. Shemot 2:17 + 182 And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and I have heard their cry because of their slave drivers, for I know their pains. Shemot 3:7 + 185 And I said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt, to the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, to a land flowing with milk and honey. Shemot 3:17 + 187 And He said, Put your hand back into your bosom, and he put his hand back into his bosom, and when he took it out of his bosom, it had become again like the rest of his flesh. Shemot 4:7 + 176 And you shall take this staff in your hand, with which you shall perform the signs. Shemot 4:17 + 164 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 + 162 You shall not continue to give stubble to the people to make the bricks like yesterday and the day before yesterday. Let them go and gather stubble for themselves. Shemot 5:7 + 163 But he said, You are lax, just lax. Therefore, you say, Let us go, let us sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 5:17 + 165 And I will take you to Me as a people, and I will be a God to you, and you will know that I am the Lord your God, Who has brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. Shemot 6:7 + 179 The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei to their families. Shemot 6:17 + 171 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 + 177 The Lord said to Moses, See! I have made you a lord over Pharaoh, and Aaron, your brother, will be your speaker. Shemot 7:1 + 169 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 + 156 But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and I will increase My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt. Shemot 7:3 + 190 But Pharaoh will not hearken to you, and I will lay My hand upon the Egyptians, and I will take My legions, My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt with great judgments. Shemot 7:4 + 177 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord when I stretch forth My hand over Egypt, and I will take the children of Israel out of their midst. Shemot 7:5 + 166 Moses and Aaron did; as the Lord commanded them, so they did. Shemot 7:6 + 154 And Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron was eighty three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh. Shemot 7:7 + 175 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, Shemot 7:8 + 194 When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, Provide a sign for yourselves, you shall say to Aaron, Take your staff, and cast it before Pharaoh; it will become a serpent. Shemot 7:9 + 173 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and they did so, as the Lord had commanded; Aaron cast his staff before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent. Shemot 7:10 + 181 Then, Pharaoh too summoned the wise men and the magicians, and the necromancers of Egypt also did likewise with their magic. Shemot 7:11 + 164 Each one of them cast down his staff, and they became serpents; but Aaron's staff swallowed their staffs. Shemot 7:12 + 179 But Pharaoh's heart remained steadfast, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 7:13 + 172 The Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh's heart is heavy; he has refused to let the people out. Shemot 7:14 + 187 Go to Pharaoh in the morning; behold, he is going forth to the water, and you shall stand opposite him on the bank of the Nile, and the staff that was turned into a serpent you shall take in your hand. Shemot 7:15 + 201 And you shall say to him, The Lord God of the Hebrews sent me to you, saying, Send forth My people, so that they may serve Me in the desert, but behold, until now, you have not hearkened. Shemot 7:16 + 178 So said the Lord, With this you will know that I am the Lord. Behold, I will smite with the staff that is in my hand upon the water that is in the Nile, and it will turn to blood. Shemot 7:17 + 168 And the fish that are in the Nile will die, and the Nile will become putrid, and the Egyptians will weary in their efforts to drink water from the Nile. Shemot 7:18 + 196 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Take your staff and stretch forth your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, over their canals, over their ponds, and over all their bodies of water, and they will become blood, and there will be blood throughout the entire land of Egypt, even in wood and in stone. Shemot 7:19 + 182 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 + 173 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 + 174 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 + 157 Pharaoh turned and went home, and he paid no heed even to this. Shemot 7:23 + 174 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 + 165 Seven full days passed after the Lord had smitten the Nile. Shemot 7:25 + 181 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 + 145 But if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all your borders with frogs. Shemot 7:27 + 197 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 + 166 And into you and into your people and into all your servants, the frogs will ascend. Shemot 7:29 + 179 And the frogs will depart from you and from your houses and from your servants and from your people; only in the Nile will they remain. Shemot 8:7 + 193 For if you do not let My people go, behold, I will incite against you and against your servants and against your people and in your houses a mixture of noxious creatures, and the houses of Egypt will be filled with the mixture of noxious creatures, as well as the land upon which they are. Shemot 8:17 + 200 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 + 179 And Pharaoh sent, and behold, not even one of the livestock of Israel died, but Pharaoh's heart became hardened, and he did not let the people out. Shemot 9:7 + 175 If you still tread upon My people, not letting them out, Shemot 9:17 + 205 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 + 190 Pharaoh's servants said to him, How long will this one be a stumbling block to us? Let the people go and they will worship their God. Don't you yet know that Egypt is lost? Shemot 10:7 + 169 But now, forgive now my sin only this time and entreat the Lord your God, and let Him remove from me just this death. Shemot 10:17 + 163 The Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he was unwilling to let them out. Shemot 10:27 + 158 But to all the children of Israel, not one dog will whet its tongue against either man or beast, in order that you shall know that the Lord will separate between the Egyptians and between Israel. Shemot 11:7 + 162 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 + 171 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 + 189 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 + 182 The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot, the men, besides the young children. Shemot 12:37 + 151 The entire community of Israel shall make it. Shemot 12:47 + 188 Unleavened cakes shall be eaten during the seven days, and no leaven shall be seen of yours in your possession, and no leavening shall be seen of yours throughout all of your borders. Shemot 13:7 + 186 It came to pass when Pharaoh let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines for it was near, because God said, Lest the people reconsider when they see war and return to Egypt. Shemot 13:17 + 152 He took six hundred select chariots and all the chariots of Egypt, with officers over them all. Shemot 14:7 + 150 And I, behold! I shall harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they will come after you, and I will be glorified through Pharaoh, and through all his force, through his chariots, and through his horsemen. Shemot 14:17 + 182 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 + 184 And with Your great pride You tear down those who rise up against You; You send forth Your burning wrath; it devours them like straw. Shemot 15:7 + 166 You shall bring them and plant them on the mount of Your heritage, directed toward Your habitation, which You made, O Lord; the sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands founded. Shemot 15:17 + 152 They came to Elim, and there were twelve water fountains and seventy palms, and they encamped there by the water. Shemot 15:27 + 181 And in the morning, you shall see the glory of the Lord when He hears your complaints against the Lord but of what significance are we, that you make the people complain against us? Shemot 16:7 + 159 And the children of Israel did so: they gathered, both the one who gathered much and the one who gathered little. Shemot 16:17 + 145 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 + 176 The entire community of the children of Israel journeyed from the desert of Sin to their travels by the mandate of the Lord. They encamped in Rephidim, and there was no water for the people to drink. Shemot 17:1 + 175 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 + 230 The people thirsted there for water, and the people complained against Moses, and they said, Why have you brought us up from Egypt to make me and my children and my livestock die of thirst? Shemot 17:3 + 188 Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, What shall I do for this people? Just a little longer and they will stone me! Shemot 17:4 + 180 And the Lord said to Moses, Pass before the people and take with you some of the elders of Israel, and take into your hand your staff, with which you struck the Nile, and go. Shemot 17:5 + 180 Behold, I shall stand there before you on the rock in Horeb, and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, and the people will drink Moses did so before the eyes of the elders of Israel. Shemot 17:6 + 165 He named the place Massah testing and Meribah quarreling because of the quarrel of the children of Israel and because of their testing the Lord, saying, Is the Lord in our midst or not? Shemot 17:7 + 146 Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. Shemot 17:8 + 184 So Moses said to Joshua, Pick men for us, and go out and fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand. Shemot 17:9 + 184 Joshua did as Moses had told him, to fight against Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur ascended to the top of the hill. Shemot 17:10 + 167 It came to pass that when Moses would raise his hand, Israel would prevail, and when he would lay down his hand, Amalek would prevail. Shemot 17:11 + 192 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 + 144 Joshua weakened Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. Shemot 17:13 + 181 The Lord said to Moses, Inscribe this as a memorial in the book, and recite it into Joshua's ears, that I will surely obliterate the remembrance of Amalek from beneath the heavens. Shemot 17:14 + 175 Then Moses built an altar, and he named it The Lord is my miracle. Shemot 17:15 + 177 And he said, For there is a hand on the throne of the Eternal, that there shall be a war for the Lord against Amalek from generation to generation. Shemot 17:16 + 185 So Moses went out toward Jethro, prostrated himself and kissed him, and they greeted one another, and they entered the tent. Shemot 18:7 + 169 Moses father in law said to him, The thing you are doing is not good. Shemot 18:17 + 154 Moses saw his father in law off, and he went away to his land. Shemot 18:27 + 169 Moses came and summoned the elders of Israel and placed before them all these words that the Lord had commanded him. Shemot 19:7 + 156 Moses brought the people out toward God from the camp, and they stood at the bottom of the mountain. Shemot 19:17 + 158 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 + 197 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 + 152 Now if a man sells his daughter as a maidservant, she shall not go free as the slaves go free. Shemot 21:7 + 157 And one who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:17 + 163 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 + 166 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 + 163 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 + 157 You shall not allow a sorceress to live. Shemot 22:17 + 142 You shall not curse a judge, neither shall you curse a prince among your people. Shemot 22:27 + 178 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 + 139 Three times during the year, all your males shall appear before the Master, the Lord. Shemot 23:17 + 157 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 + 145 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 + 250 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 + 142 Shoham stones and filling stones for the ephod and for the choshen. Shemot 25:7 + 175 And you shall make an ark cover of pure gold, two and a half cubits its length and a cubit and a half its width. Shemot 25:17 + 150 The rings shall be opposite the frame as holders for the poles with which to carry the table. Shemot 25:27 + 162 And you shall make its lamps seven, and he shall kindle its lamps so that they shed light toward its face. Shemot 25:37 + 149 And then you shall make curtains of goat hair for a tent over the Mishkan; you shall make eleven curtains. Shemot 26:7 + 162 Each plank shall have two square pegs, rung like, one even with the other; so shall you make all the planks of the Mishkan. Shemot 26:17 + 144 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 26:27 + 181 You shall make for the screen five pillars of acacia and overlay them with gold, their hooks shall be gold, and you shall cast for them five copper sockets. Shemot 26:37 + 154 And you shall make the altar of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits wide; the altar shall be square, and its height shall be three cubits. Shemot 27:1 + 158 And you shall make its horns on its four corners; its horns shall be from it, and you shall overlay it with copper. Shemot 27:2 + 175 And you shall make its pots to remove its ashes, and its shovels and its sprinkling basins and its flesh hooks and its scoops; you shall make all its implements of copper. Shemot 27:3 + 158 And you shall make for it a copper grating of netting work, and you shall make on the netting four copper rings on its four ends. Shemot 27:4 + 180 And you shall place it beneath the ledge of the altar from below, and the net shall extend downward until the middle of the altar. Shemot 27:5 + 157 And you shall make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and you shall overlay them with copper. Shemot 27:6 + 162 And its poles shall be inserted into the rings, and the poles shall be on both sides of the altar when it is carried. Shemot 27:7 + 156 You shall make it hollow, out of boards; as He showed you on the mountain, so shall they do. Shemot 27:8 + 182 And you shall make the courtyard of the Mishkan on the southern side there shall be hangings for the courtyard of twisted fine linen, one hundred cubits long on one side. Shemot 27:9 + 163 And its pillars shall be twenty and their sockets twenty of copper; the hooks of the pillars and their bands shall be of silver. Shemot 27:10 + 174 And so for the northern end in the length hangings one hundred cubits long, its pillars twenty, and their sockets twenty of copper; the hooks of the pillars and their bands of silver. Shemot 27:11 + 185 The width of the courtyard on the western side, hangings fifty cubits, their pillars ten and their sockets ten. Shemot 27:12 + 182 The width of the courtyard on the eastern side, fifty cubits. Shemot 27:13 + 176 The hangings on the shoulder shall be fifteen cubits, their pillars three and their sockets three. Shemot 27:14 + 185 And on the second shoulder there shall be fifteen hangings, their pillars three and their sockets three. Shemot 27:15 + 183 And at the gate of the courtyard shall be a screen of twenty cubits, made of blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen, the work of an embroiderer; their pillars four and their sockets four. Shemot 27:16 + 167 All the pillars around the courtyard shall have silver bands, silver hooks, and copper sockets. Shemot 27:17 + 190 The length of the courtyard shall be one hundred cubits and the width fifty by fifty cubits. The height of the hangings shall be five cubits of twisted fine linen, and their sockets shall be of copper. Shemot 27:18 + 171 All the implements of the Mishkan for all its labor, and all its pegs and all the pegs of the courtyard shall be copper. Shemot 27:19 + 159 All the implements of the Mishkan for all its labor, and all its pegs and all the pegs of the courtyard shall be copper. Shemot 27:20 + 174 In the Tent of Meeting, outside the dividing curtain that is in front of the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall set it up before the Lord from evening to morning; it shall be an everlasting statute for their generations, from the children of Israel. Shemot 27:21 + 174 It shall have two connected shoulder straps at both its ends, and it shall be entirely connected. Shemot 28:7 + 153 And you shall fill into it stone fillings, four rows of stones. One row: odem, pitdah, and bareketh; thus shall the one row be. Shemot 28:17 + 182 And you shall make two golden rings and place 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 28:27 + 159 And you shall place it upon a cord of blue wool and it shall go over the cap, and it shall be opposite the front side of the cap. Shemot 28:37 + 147 You shall take the anointing oil and pour it on his head and anoint him. Shemot 29:7 + 144 And you shall dissect the ram into its parts, and you shall wash its innards and its legs and put them with its parts and with its head, Shemot 29:17 + 180 And you shall sanctify the breast of the waving and the thigh of the uplifting, which was waved and which was lifted up, of the ram of perfection, of that which is Aaron's and of that which is his sons. Shemot 29:27 + 174 For seven days you shall perform atonement upon the altar and sanctify it. Henceforth, the altar shall be a holy of holies. Whatever touches the altar will be holy. Shemot 29:37 + 228 Aaron shall make incense of spices go up in smoke upon it; every morning when he sets the lamps in order, he shall make it go up in smoke. Shemot 30:7 + 138 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:17 + 121 The table and all its implements, the menorah and its implements, the altar of incense, Shemot 30:27 + 141 And the incense that you make, you shall not make for yourselves according to its formula; it shall be holy to you for the Lord. Shemot 30:37 + 139 The Tent of Meeting and the ark for the testimony, as well as the cover that shall be upon it, all the implements of the tent, Shemot 31:7 + 155 Between Me and the children of Israel, it is forever a sign that in six days The Lord created the heaven and the earth, and on the seventh day He ceased and rested. Shemot 31:17 + 162 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 + 135 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 + 167 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 + 166 And Moses took the tent and pitched it for himself outside the camp, distancing it from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting, and it would be that anyone seeking the Lord would go out to the tent of meeting, which was outside the camp. Shemot 33:7 + 150 And the Lord said to Moses: Even this thing that you have spoken, I will do, for you have found favor in My eyes, and I have known you by name. Shemot 33:17 + 188 Preserving loving kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and rebellion and sin; yet He does not completely clear of sin He visits the iniquity of parents on children and children's children, to the third and fourth generations. Shemot 34:7 + 118 You shall not make molten gods for yourself. Shemot 34:17 + 175 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 + 121 And ram skins dyed red, tachash skins, and acacia wood; Shemot 35:7 + 145 The hangings of the courtyard, its pillars, and its sockets, and the screen of the gate of the courtyard; Shemot 35:17 + 130 And the work was sufficient for them for all the work, to do it and to leave over. Shemot 36:7 + 115 And he made fifty loops on the edge of the outermost curtain of the first set, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the outermost curtain of the second set. Shemot 36:17 + 123 And for the western end of the Mishkan he made six planks. Shemot 36:27 + 113 And he made a screen for the entrance of the tent, of blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen the work of an embroiderer, Shemot 36:37 + 116 Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood, two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high. Shemot 37:1 + 134 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 + 129 And he cast four golden rings for it upon its four corners, two rings on its one side and two rings on its other side. Shemot 37:3 + 113 And he made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. Shemot 37:4 + 98 And he inserted the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to carry the ark. Shemot 37:5 + 123 And he made an ark cover of pure gold, two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide. Shemot 37:6 + 113 And he made two golden cherubim he made them of hammered work, from the two ends of the ark cover, Shemot 37:7 + 102 One cherub from the one end and the other cherub from the other end; from the ark cover he made the cherubim from its two ends. Shemot 37:8 + 143 The cherubim had their wings spread upwards, shielding the ark cover with their wings, with their faces toward one another; turned toward the ark cover were the faces of the cherubim. Shemot 37:9 + 122 And he made a table of acacia wood two cubits long, one cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high. Shemot 37:10 + 130 He overlaid it with pure gold, and he made for it a golden crown all around. Shemot 37:11 + 145 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 + 128 And he cast for it four golden rings, and he placed the rings on the four corners that are on its four legs. Shemot 37:13 + 118 The rings were opposite the frame as holders for the poles with which to carry the table. Shemot 37:14 + 116 And he made the poles of acacia wood, and he overlaid them with gold, to carry the table. Shemot 37:15 + 143 And he made the implements that are on the table: its forms, its spoons, its half pipes, and its supports with which it will be covered of pure gold. Shemot 37:16 + 151 And he made the menorah of pure gold; of hammered work he made the menorah, its base and its stem, its goblets, its knobs, and its flowers were all one piece with it. Shemot 37:17 + 121 And six branches coming out of its sides: three menorah branches from its one side and three menorah branches from its second side. Shemot 37:18 + 133 Three decorated goblets on one branch, a knob and a flower, and three decorated goblets on one branch, a knob and a flower; so for the six branches that come out of the menorah. Shemot 37:19 + 139 And on the stem of the menorah were four decorated goblets, its knobs and its flowers. Shemot 37:20 + 115 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 + 128 Their knobs and their branches were all one piece with it; all of it was one hammered mass of pure gold. Shemot 37:22 + 102 And he made its lamps seven, and its tongs and its scoops of pure gold. Shemot 37:23 + 114 He made it of a talent of pure gold, and all its implements. Shemot 37:24 + 124 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 + 141 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 + 134 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 + 134 He made the poles out of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. Shemot 37:28 + 109 And he made the holy anointing oil and the pure incense after the art of a perfumer. Shemot 37:29 + 130 And he inserted the poles into the rings on the sides of the altar with which to carry it; he made it hollow, out of boards. Shemot 38:7 + 147 And the sockets for the pillars were copper; the hooks of the pillars and their bands were silver, and the overlay of their tops was silver, and they were banded with silver, all the pillars of the courtyard. Shemot 38:17 + 128 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 + 155 And he put them upon the shoulder straps of the ephod as stones of remembrance for the sons of Israel, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:7 + 116 And they placed the two golden cables on the two rings, at the ends of the choshen. Shemot 39:17 + 118 And they made the linen tunics, the work of a weaver, for Aaron and for his sons, Shemot 39:27 + 110 The pure menorah, its lamps, the lamps to be set in order and all its implements, and the oil for the lighting, Shemot 39:37 + 113 You shall place the washstand between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and there you shall put water. Shemot 40:7 + 116 It came to pass in the first month, in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the Mishkan was set up. Shemot 40:17 + 146 He made the incense go up in smoke upon it as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:27 + 114 But if the cloud did not rise up, they did not set out until the day that it rose. Shemot 40:37 + 163 And the descendants of Aaron the kohen shall place fire on the altar, and arrange wood on the fire. Vayikra 1:7 + 263 And he shall split it open with its wing feathers intact, but he shall not tear it completely apart. The kohen shall then cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, on top of the wood which is on the fire. It is a burnt offering, a fire offering with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 1:17 + 222 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 + 141 If he brings a sheep as his sacrifice, then he shall bring it before the Lord. Vayikra 3:7 + 133 This is an eternal statute for all your generations, in all your dwelling places: You shall not eat any fat or any blood. Vayikra 3:17 + 150 And the kohen shall place some of the blood on the horns of the incense altar which is in the Tent of Meeting, before the Lord, and he shall pour all the blood of the bull onto the base of the altar used for burnt offerings, which is at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 4:7 + 121 And the kohen shall dip his finger from the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the Lord, before the dividing curtain. Vayikra 4:17 + 171 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 + 143 But if he cannot afford a sheep, he shall bring as his guilt offering for that sin that he had committed, two turtle doves or two young doves before the Lord, one for a sin offering, and one for a burnt offering. Vayikra 5:7 + 151 If a person sins and commits one of the commandments of the Lord which may not be committed, but he does not know, he is guilty, and he shall bear his transgression. Vayikra 5:17 + 129 And this is the law of the meal offering: that Aaron's sons shall bring it before the Lord, to the front of the altar. Vayikra 6:7 + 138 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 6:17 + 127 And this is the law of the guilt offering. It is a holy of holies. Vayikra 7:1 + 155 They shall slaughter the guilt offering in the place where they slaughter the burnt offering; and its blood shall be dashed upon the altar, around. Vayikra 7:2 + 128 And all of its fat he shall offer from it: the tail and the fat covering the innards, Vayikra 7:3 + 139 And the two kidneys along with the fat that is upon them, which is on the flanks, and the diaphragm with the liver; along with the kidneys he shall remove it. Vayikra 7:4 + 166 And the kohen shall cause them to go up in smoke on the altar as a fire offering to the Lord. It is a guilt offering. Vayikra 7:5 + 139 Any male among the kohanim may eat it; it shall be eaten in a holy place. It is a holy of holies. Vayikra 7:6 + 159 Like the sin offering, so is the guilt offering, they have one law; the kohen who effects atonement through it to him it shall belong. Vayikra 7:7 + 130 And the kohen who offers up a person's burnt offering, the skin of the burnt offering which he has offered up, belongs to the kohen; it shall be his. Vayikra 7:8 + 143 And any meal offering baked in an oven, and any one made in a deep pan or in a shallow pan, belongs to the kohen who offers it up; it shall be his. Vayikra 7:9 + 126 And any meal offering mixed with oil or dry, shall belong to all the sons of Aaron, one like the other. Vayikra 7:10 + 124 And this is the law of the peace offering, which he shall bring to the Lord. Vayikra 7:11 + 161 If he is bringing it as a thanksgiving offering, he shall offer, along with the thanksgiving offering unleavened loaves mixed with oil, unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and scalded flour mixed with oil. Vayikra 7:12 + 149 Along with loaves of leavened bread, he shall bring his offering along with his thanksgiving peace offering. Vayikra 7:13 + 239 And he shall bring from it one out of each offering, as a separation for the Lord; the kohen who dashes the blood of the peace offering it shall be his. Vayikra 7:14 + 133 And the flesh of his thanksgiving peace offering shall be eaten on the day it is offered up; he shall not leave any of it over until morning. Vayikra 7:15 + 140 But if his sacrifice is a vow or a voluntary donation, on the day he offers up his sacrifice it may be eaten, and on the next day, whatever is left over from it, may be eaten. Vayikra 7:16 + 135 However, whatever is left over from the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day, shall be burnt in fire. Vayikra 7:17 + 155 And if any of the flesh of his peace offering is to be eaten on the third day, it shall not be accepted; it shall not count for the one who offers it; rather, it shall be rejected, and the person who eats of it shall bear his sin. Vayikra 7:18 + 168 And the flesh that touches anything unclean shall not be eaten. It shall be burned in fire. But regarding the flesh, anyone who is clean may eat the flesh. Vayikra 7:19 + 147 A person who eats the flesh of a peace offering of the Lord, while his uncleanness is upon him, that soul shall be cut off from its people. Vayikra 7:20 + 178 And a person who touches anything unclean, whether uncleanness from a human or an unclean animal carcass or any unclean carcass of an abominable creature, and then eats of the flesh of a peace offering to the Lord, that soul shall be cut off from its people. Vayikra 7:21 + 128 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 7:22 + 141 Speak to the Children of Israel, saying: You shall not eat any fat of an ox, sheep, or goat. Vayikra 7:23 + 142 The fat of carrion and the fat of an animal with a fatal disease or injury, may be used for any work, but you shall not eat it. Vayikra 7:24 + 159 For anyone who eats fat of animals from which sacrifices are brought as fire offerings to the Lord, the soul who eats it shall be cut off from its people. Vayikra 7:25 + 141 And you shall not eat any blood in any of your dwelling places, whether from birds or from animals. Vayikra 7:26 + 137 Any person who eats any blood, that soul shall be cut off from its people. Vayikra 7:27 + 133 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 7:28 + 141 Speak to the Children of Israel, saying: Anyone who brings his peace offering to the Lord, shall bring his sacrifice to the Lord from his peace offering. Vayikra 7:29 + 130 His own hands shall bring the fire offerings of the Lord. The fat, on the breast, he shall bring it, the breast, to wave it as a waving before the Lord. Vayikra 7:30 + 132 And the kohen shall cause the fat to go up in smoke on the altar, and the breast shall belong to Aaron and his sons. Vayikra 7:31 + 141 And you shall give the right thigh as an elevation offering to the kohen, from your peace offering. Vayikra 7:32 + 133 Anyone of the sons of Aaron who offers up the blood of the peace offering and the fat he shall have the right thigh as a portion. Vayikra 7:33 + 145 For I have taken the breast of the waving and the thigh of the elevation from the children of Israel, from their peace offerings, and I have given them to Aaron the kohen and to his sons as an eternal statute, from the children of Israel. Vayikra 7:34 + 158 This is the grant for Aaron's anointment and his sons' anointment, from the fire offerings of the Lord, on the day that He brought them near, to be kohanim for the Lord. Vayikra 7:35 + 146 Which the Lord commanded to give them on the day that He anointed them, from the children of Israel. This is an eternal statute for their generations. Vayikra 7:36 + 125 This is the law for the burnt offering, for the meal offering, and for the sin offering, and for the guilt offering, and for the investitures, and for the peace offering, Vayikra 7:37 + 164 Which the Lord commanded Moses on Mount Sinai, on the day He commanded the children of Israel to offer up their sacrifices to the Lord in the Sinai Desert. Vayikra 7:38 + 154 And he placed the tunic upon him, girded him with the sash, clothed him with the robe, placed the ephod upon him, girded him with the band of the ephod, and adorned him with it. Vayikra 8:7 + 159 And the bull, its hide, its flesh, and its waste, he burned with fire outside the camp, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 8:17 + 119 And then he placed it all on Aaron's palms and on his son's palms, and he waved them as a waving before the Lord. Vayikra 8:27 + 154 And Moses said to Aaron, Approach the altar and perform your sin offering and your burnt offering, atoning for yourself and for the people, and perform the people's sacrifice, atoning for them, as the Lord has commanded. Vayikra 9:7 + 135 And he brought forward the meal offering, filled his palm with it, and caused it to go up in smoke on the altar, in addition to the morning burnt offering. Vayikra 9:17 + 144 And do not go out of the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, lest you die, because the Lord's anointing oil is upon you. And they did according to Moses order. Vayikra 10:7 + 138 Why did you not eat the sin offering in the holy place? For it is holy of holies, and He has given it to you to gain forgiveness for the sin of the community, to effect their atonement before the Lord! Vayikra 10:17 + 263 And the pig, because it has a cloven hoof that is completely split, but will not regurgitate its cud; it is unclean for you. Vayikra 11:7 + 107 The owl, the gull, the little owl; Vayikra 11:17 + 182 And among all the animals that walk on four legs, any animal that walks on its paws is unclean for you. Anyone who touches their carcass will be unclean until evening. Vayikra 11:27 + 138 And if of their carcass falls upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it remains clean. Vayikra 11:37 + 127 To distinguish between the unclean and the clean, and between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten. Vayikra 11:47 + 144 And he shall offer it up before the Lord and effect atonement for her, and thus, she will be purified from the source of her blood. This is the law of a woman who gives birth to a male or to a female. Vayikra 12:7 + 163 However, if the mispachath spreads on the skin after it has been shown it to the kohen for its purification, it shall be shown to the kohen a second time. Vayikra 13:7 + 135 And the kohen shall look at it. And, behold! the lesion has turned white; the kohen shall pronounce the lesion clean. He is clean. Vayikra 13:17 + 133 And the kohen shall look at it on the seventh day. If it has spread on the skin, the kohen shall pronounce him unclean. It is a lesion of tzara'ath. Vayikra 13:27 + 149 But if the appearance of the nethek has remained the same, or if black hair has grown in it, the nethek has healed; he is clean. So the kohen shall pronounce him clean. Vayikra 13:37 + 138 And as for the garment that has the lesion of tzara'ath upon it, on a woolen garment, or on a linen garment, Vayikra 13:47 + 161 And if it appears again on the garment, the warp or woof threads or any leather article, it is a recurrent growth of the lesion. You shall burn it in fire the article upon which the lesion is found. Vayikra 13:57 + 154 He shall then sprinkle seven times upon the person being cleansed from tzara'ath, and he shall cleanse him. He shall then send away the live bird into the open field. Vayikra 14:7 + 165 And some of the remainder of the oil that is in his palm, the kohen shall place on the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot, on top of the blood of the guilt offering. Vayikra 14:17 + 180 And the kohen shall sprinkle with his right index finger some of the oil that is in his left palm, seven times before the Lord. Vayikra 14:27 + 169 And he shall look at the lesion. Now, if the lesion in the walls of the house consists of dark green or dark red sunken looking stains, appearing as if deeper than the wall, Vayikra 14:37 + 149 And whoever lies down in the house, shall immerse his garments, and whoever eats in the house, shall immerse his garments. Vayikra 14:47 + 136 To render decisions regarding the day of uncleanness and the day of cleanness. This is the law of tzara'ath. Vayikra 14:57 + 155 And anyone who touches the flesh of the man with a discharge, shall immerse his garments and immerse himself in water, and he shall remain unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:7 + 131 And any garment or any leather object which has semen on it, shall be immersed in water, and shall remain unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:17 + 136 And anyone who touches them shall become unclean; he shall immerse his garments and immerse himself in water, and he shall remain unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:27 + 140 And he shall take the two he goats, and place them before the Lord at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 16:7 + 163 And no man shall be in the Tent of Meeting when he comes to effect atonement in the Holy, until he comes out. And he shall effect atonement for himself, for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel. Vayikra 16:17 + 164 And the sin offering bull and he goat of the sin offering, both of whose blood was brought to effect atonement in the Holy, he shall take outside the camp, and they shall burn in fire their hides, their flesh, and their waste. Vayikra 16:27 + 137 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 17:1 + 136 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, and to all the children of Israel, and say to them: This is the thing the Lord has commanded, saying: Vayikra 17:2 + 157 Any man of the House of Israel, who slaughters an ox, a lamb, or a goat inside the camp, or who slaughters outside the camp, Vayikra 17:3 + 142 But does not bring it to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting to offer up as a sacrifice to the Lord before the Mishkan of the Lord, this act shall be counted for that man as blood he has shed blood, and that man shall be cut off from among his people; Vayikra 17:4 + 160 In order that the children of Israel should bring their offerings which they slaughter on the open field, and bring them to the Lord, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, to the kohen, and slaughter them as peace offerings to the Lord. Vayikra 17:5 + 144 And the kohen shall dash the blood upon the altar of the Lord at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and he shall cause the fat to go up in smoke, as a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 17:6 + 154 And they shall no longer slaughter their sacrifices to the satyrs after which they stray. This shall be an eternal statute for them, for all their generations. Vayikra 17:7 + 156 And you should say to them: Any man of the House of Israel or of the strangers who will sojourn among them, who offers up a burnt offering or any other sacrifice, Vayikra 17:8 + 196 but does not bring it to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting to make it a sacrifice to the Lord, that man shall be cut off from his people. Vayikra 17:9 + 176 And any man of the House of Israel or of the strangers that sojourn among them, who eats any blood, I will set My attention upon the soul who eats the blood, and I will cut him off from among his people. Vayikra 17:10 + 158 For the soul of the flesh is in the blood, and I have therefore given it to you to be placed upon the altar, to atone for your souls. For it is the blood that atones for the soul. Vayikra 17:11 + 166 Therefore, I said to the children of Israel: None of you shall eat blood, and the stranger who sojourns among you shall not eat blood. Vayikra 17:12 + 164 And any man of the children of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among them, who traps a quarry of a wild animal or bird that may be eaten, and sheds its blood, he shall cover it the blood with dust. Vayikra 17:13 + 159 For regarding the soul of all flesh its blood is in its soul, and I said to the children of Israel: You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the soul of any flesh is its blood all who eat it shall be cut off. Vayikra 17:14 + 151 And any person, whether a native or a stranger, who eats carrion or what was torn, shall immerse his garments and immerse himself in the waters, and shall remain unclean until evening, and then he shall become clean. Vayikra 17:15 + 132 But if he does not immerse his garments or immerse his flesh, he shall bear his sin. Vayikra 17:16 + 132 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother; she is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness. Vayikra 18:7 + 143 You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter; you shall not take in marriage her son's daughter or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness they are close relatives, it is evil counsel. Vayikra 18:17 + 129 For the people of the land who preceded you, did all of these abominations, and the land became defiled. Vayikra 18:27 + 144 And if it would be eaten on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted. Vayikra 19:7 + 146 You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your fellow, but you shall not bear a sin on his account. Vayikra 19:17 + 129 You shall not round off the corner of your head, and you shall not destroy the edge of your beard. Vayikra 19:27 + 153 You shall observe all My statutes and all My ordinances, and fulfill them. I am the Lord. Vayikra 19:37 + 145 You shall sanctify yourselves and be holy, for I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 20:7 + 150 And a man who takes his sister, whether his father's daughter or his mother's daughter, and he sees her nakedness, and she sees his nakedness it is a disgraceful act, and they shall be cut off before the eyes of the members of their people; he uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his sin. Vayikra 20:17 + 154 And a man or a woman who has the sorcery of Ov or Yid'oni, shall surely be put to death; they shall pelt them with stones; their blood is upon themselves. Vayikra 20:27 + 148 They shall not marry a woman who is a prostitute or who is desecrated, and they shall not marry a woman who is divorced from her husband for he the kohen is holy to his God. Vayikra 21:7 + 156 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 + 146 When the sun sets, he becomes clean, and afterwards, he may eat of the holy things, for it is his food. Vayikra 22:7 + 128 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 22:17 + 171 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 + 122 On the first day, there shall be a holy occasion for you; you shall not perform any work of labor. Vayikra 23:7 + 156 From your dwelling places, you shall bring bread, set aside, two loaves made from two tenths of an ephah; they shall be of fine flour, and they shall be baked leavened, the first offering to the Lord. Vayikra 23:17 + 159 But on the tenth of this seventh month, it is a day of atonement, it shall be a holy occasion for you; you shall afflict yourselves, and you shall offer up a fire offering to the Lord. Vayikra 23:27 + 153 These are God's appointed holy days that you shall designate them as holy occasions, on which to offer up a fire offering to the Lord burnt offering and meal offering, sacrifice and libations, the requirement of each day on its day; Vayikra 23:37 + 220 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 + 135 And if a man strikes down any human being he shall be put to death. Vayikra 24:17 + 157 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 + 142 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 + 139 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 + 140 You shall not give him your money with interest, nor shall you give your food with increase. Vayikra 25:37 + 139 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 + 134 You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you; Vayikra 26:7 + 126 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 + 176 And if, despite this, you still do not listen to Me, still treating Me as happenstance, Vayikra 26:27 + 172 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 + 114 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 27:1 + 152 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 + 157 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 + 118 And if she is a female, the value is thirty shekels; Vayikra 27:4 + 134 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 + 147 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 + 137 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 + 146 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 + 133 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 + 157 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 + 101 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 + 135 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 + 96 But if he redeems it, he shall add its fifth to its value. Vayikra 27:13 + 126 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 + 115 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 + 154 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 + 113 Now, if he consecrates his field from when the Jubilee year has ended, it shall remain at its full valuation. Vayikra 27:17 + 130 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 + 107 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 + 126 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 + 140 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 + 112 And if he consecrates to the Lord a field that he had acquired, that is not part of his inherited property, Vayikra 27:22 + 125 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 + 123 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 + 110 Every valuation shall be made according to the holy shekel, whereby one shekel is the equivalent of twenty gerahs. Vayikra 27:25 + 137 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 + 138 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 + 137 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 + 123 Any devoting of a person who has been devoted, need not be redeemed for he is to be put to death. Vayikra 27:29 + 120 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 + 102 And if a man redeems some of his tithe, he shall add its fifth to it. Vayikra 27:31 + 110 Any tithe of cattle or flock of all that pass under the rod, the tenth shall be holy to the Lord. Vayikra 27:32 + 140 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 + 163 These are the commandments that the Lord commanded Moses to tell the children of Israel on Mount Sinai. Vayikra 27:34 + 117 For Judah, Nahshon the son of Amminadab. Bamidbar 1:7 + 126 Then Moses and Aaron took these men, who were indicated by their names, Bamidbar 1:17 + 127 Those counted from the tribe of Judah: seventy four thousand, six hundred. Bamidbar 1:27 + 115 Those counted from the tribe of Benjamin: thirty five thousand, four hundred. Bamidbar 1:37 + 127 But the Levites, according to their father's tribe were not numbered among them. Bamidbar 1:47 + 116 Then the tribe of Zebulun, and the prince of the children of Zebulun was Eliab the son of Helon. Bamidbar 2:7 + 142 Then the Tent of Meeting shall set out, with the Levite camp, in the center of the other camps. Just as they camp, so shall they travel, each man in his place, by their divisions. Bamidbar 2:17 + 120 Camping next to him was the tribe of Asher. The prince of the children of Asher was Pag'iel the son of 'Ocran. Bamidbar 2:27 + 111 They shall keep his charge and the charge of the entire community before the Tent of Meeting, to perform the service of the Mishkan. Bamidbar 3:7 + 116 These were the names of Levi's sons: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. Bamidbar 3:17 + 127 Also the pillars of the surrounding courtyard, their sockets, their stakes, and their ropes. Bamidbar 3:37 + 117 You shall take five shekels per head, according to the holy shekel, by which the shekel is twenty gerahs. Bamidbar 3:47 + 142 They shall spread a cloth of blue wool on the Show Table and they shall place on it the forms, spoons, supports, and covering frames; the continual bread can then be placed upon it. Bamidbar 4:7 + 116 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron saying: Bamidbar 4:17 + 135 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 + 132 These are the numbers of the Kohathite families, all who served in the Tent of Meeting, who were counted by Moses and Aaron as directed by the Lord to Moses. Bamidbar 4:37 + 129 From the age of thirty years and upward until the age of fifty years, who are fit to perform the service for the service and the work of carrying, in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:47 + 145 They shall confess the sin they committed, and make restitution for the principal amount of his guilt, add its fifth to it, and give it to the one against whom he was guilty. Bamidbar 5:7 + 115 The kohen shall take holy water in an earthen vessel, and some earth from the Mishkan floor, the kohen shall take and put it into the water. Bamidbar 5:17 + 137 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 + 133 To his father, to his mother, to his brother, or to his sister, he shall not defile himself if they die, for the crown of his God is upon his head. Bamidbar 6:7 + 133 He shall make the ram as a peace offering to the Lord, along with the basket of unleavened cakes, and the kohen shall perform the service of its meal offering with its libation. Bamidbar 6:17 + 117 They shall bestow My Name upon the children of Israel, so that I will bless them. Bamidbar 6:27 + 151 And it was that on the day that Moses finished erecting the Mishkan, he anointed it, sanctified it, and all its vessels, and the altar and all its vessels, and he anointed them and sanctified them. Bamidbar 7:1 + 146 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 + 132 They brought their offering before the Lord: six covered wagons and twelve oxen, a wagon for each two chieftains, and an ox for each one; they presented them in front of the Mishkan. Bamidbar 7:3 + 117 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 7:4 + 129 Take it from them, and let them be used in the service of the Tent of Meeting. You shall give them to the Levites, in accordance with each man's work. Bamidbar 7:5 + 122 So Moses took the wagons and the cattle and gave them to the Levites. Bamidbar 7:6 + 123 He gave two wagons and four oxen to the sons of Gershon, according to their work. Bamidbar 7:7 + 144 And he gave four wagons and eight oxen to the sons of Merari, according to their work under the direction of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. Bamidbar 7:8 + 160 But to the sons of Kohath he did not give, for incumbent upon them was the work involving the holy objects, which they were to carry on their shoulders. Bamidbar 7:9 + 127 The chieftains brought offerings for the dedication of the altar on the day it was anointed; the chieftains presented their offerings in front of the altar. Bamidbar 7:10 + 135 The Lord said to Moses: One chieftain each day, one chieftain each day, shall present his offering for the dedication of the altar.

Bamidbar 7:79 + 122 One spoon weighing ten shekels of gold filled with incense. Bamidbar 7:80 + 111 One young bull, one ram and one lamb in its first year for a burnt offering. Bamidbar 7:81 + 110 One young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 7:82 + 119 And for the peace offering: two oxen, five rams, five he goats, five lambs in their first year; this was the offering of Ahira the son of Enan. Bamidbar 7:83 + 120 This was the dedication offering of the altar presented by the chieftains on the day it was anointed; there were twelve silver bowls, twelve silver basins and twelve gold spoons. Bamidbar 7:84 + 137 The weight of each silver bowl was one hundred and thirty shekels, and that of each basin was seventy shekels; all the silver of the vessels weighed in total two thousand four hundred shekels according to the holy shekel. Bamidbar 7:85 + 158 Twelve gold spoons filled with incense; each spoon weighing ten shekels according to the holy shekel; all the gold spoons totaled one hundred and twenty shekels.

And there were twelve young he goats for sin offerings. Bamidbar 7:87 + 144 The total of cattle for the peace offerings was twenty four oxen, sixty rams, sixty he goats, and sixty lambs in their first year. This was the dedication offering for the altar, after it was anointed. Bamidbar 7:88 + 128 When Moses would come into the Tent of Meeting to speak with Him, he would hear the voice speaking to him from the two cherubim above the covering which was over the Ark of Testimony, and He spoke to him. Bamidbar 7:89 + 143 This is what you shall do to them so as to cleanse them: sprinkle them with cleansing water and pass a razor over all their flesh; then they shall wash their garments and cleanse themselves. Bamidbar 8:7 + 129 For all the firstborn among the children of Israel are Mine whether man or beast since the day I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt; I have sanctified them for Myself. Bamidbar 8:17 + 154 Those men said to him, "We are ritually unclean because of contact with a dead person; but why should we be excluded so as not to bring the offering of the Lord in its appointed time, with all the children of Israel? Bamidbar 9:7 + 149 And according to the cloud's departure from over the Tent, and afterwards, the children of Israel would travel, and in the place where the cloud settled, there the children of Israel would encamp. Bamidbar 9:17 + 120 But when assembling the congregation, you shall blow a tekiah [long blast] but not a teruah. Bamidbar 10:7 + 124 The Tabernacle was dismantled, and the sons of Gershon set out, [together] with the sons of Merari who carried the Tabernacle. Bamidbar 10:17 + 96 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Naphtali was Ahira the son of Enon. Bamidbar 10:27 + 117 Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its appearance was like the appearance of crystal. Bamidbar 11:7 + 115 I will come down and speak with you there, and I will increase the spirit that is upon you and bestow it upon them. Then they will bear the burden of the people with you so that you need not bear it alone. Bamidbar 11:17 + 129 The lad ran and told Moses, saying, Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp! Bamidbar 11:27 + 123 Not so is My servant Moses; he is faithful throughout My house. Bamidbar 12:7 + 108 For the tribe of Issachar, Yigal the son of Joseph. Bamidbar 13:7 + 149 Moses sent them to scout the Land of Canaan, and he said to them, Go up this way in the south and climb up the mountain. Bamidbar 13:17 + 114 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 + 128 They spoke to the entire congregation of the children of Israel, saying, The land we passed through to scout is an exceedingly good land. Bamidbar 14:7 + 120 Now, please, let the strength of the Lord be increased, as You spoke, saying. Bamidbar 14:17 + 150 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 + 94 The men who spread an evil report about the Land died in the plague, before the Lord. Bamidbar 14:37 + 114 And a third of a hin of wine for a libation; you shall offer up, a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 15:7 + 98 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 15:17 + 101 But if an individual sins inadvertently, he shall offer up a she goat in its first year as a sin offering. Bamidbar 15:27 + 98 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 15:37 + 119 Place fire into them and put incense upon them before the Lord tomorrow, and the man whom the Lord chooses he is the holy one; you have taken too much upon yourselves, sons of Levi." Bamidbar 16:7 + 98 Let each man take his censer and place incense upon it, and let each man present his censer before the Lord; there will thus be two hundred and fifty censers, and let you and Aaron each take his censer. Bamidbar 16:17 + 124 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 + 105 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:1 + 117 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 + 119 The censers of these who sinned at the cost of their lives, and they shall make them into flattened out plates as an overlay for the altar, for they brought them before the Lord, and have therefore become sanctified, and they shall be as a reminder for the children of Israel. Bamidbar 17:3 + 122 So Eleazar the kohen took the copper censers which the fire victims had brought, and they hammered them out as an overlay for the altar, Bamidbar 17:4 + 137 As a reminder for the children of Israel, so that no outsider, who is not of the seed of Aaron, shall approach to burn incense before the Lord, so as not to be like Korah and his company, as the Lord spoke regarding him through the hand of Moses. Bamidbar 17:5 + 121 The following day, the entire congregation of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron saying, "You have killed the people of the Lord." Bamidbar 17:6 + 113 It came to pass while the congregation were assembled against Moses and Aaron, that they turned to the Tent of Meeting, and behold, the cloud had covered it, and the glory of the Lord appeared. Bamidbar 17:7 + 110 Moses and Aaron came to the front of the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 17:8 + 100 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:9 + 118 Stand aside from this congregation, and I shall consume them in an instant. They fell on their faces. Bamidbar 17:10 + 134 Moses said to Aaron, "Take the censer and put fire from the altar top into it and put incense. Then take it quickly to the congregation and atone for them, for wrath has gone forth from the Lord, and the plague has begun." Bamidbar 17:11 + 132 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 + 99 He stood between the dead and the living, and the plague ceased. Bamidbar 17:13 + 113 The number of dead in the plague was fourteen thousand, seven hundred, besides those who died because of the matter of Korah. Bamidbar 17:14 + 105 Aaron returned to Moses at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and the plague was checked. Bamidbar 17:15 + 96 The Lord said to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:16 + 137 Speak to the children of Israel and take from them a staff for each father's house from all the chieftains according to their father's houses; a total of twelve staffs, and inscribe each man's name on his staff. Bamidbar 17:17 + 112 Inscribe Aaron's name on the staff of Levi, for there is only one staff for the head of their fathers' house. Bamidbar 17:18 + 99 You shall place the staffs in the Tent of Meeting before the Ark of the Testimony where I commune with you. Bamidbar 17:19 + 119 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 + 138 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 + 86 Moses placed the staffs before the Lord in the Tent of the Testimony. Bamidbar 17:22 + 161 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 + 110 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 + 122 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 + 101 Moses did so. He did just as the Lord had commanded him. Bamidbar 17:26 + 111 The children of Israel spoke to Moses saying, Behold, we are dying, we will perish, we are all lost! Bamidbar 17:27 + 105 Whoever comes the closest to the Mishkan of the Lord dies! Have we been consigned to die? Bamidbar 17:28 + 131 And you and your sons shall keep your kehunah in all matters concerning the altar, and concerning what is within the dividing screen, and you shall serve; the service as a gift I have given your kehunah, and any outsider non-kohen who approaches shall die. Bamidbar 18:7 + 130 However, a firstborn ox or a firstborn sheep or a firstborn goat shall not be redeemed, for they are holy; their blood shall be sprinkled on the altar, and their fats shall be burned as a fire-offering, as a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 18:17 + 114 Your gift shall be considered for you as grain from the threshing-floor and as the produce of the vat. Bamidbar 18:27 + 109 The kohen shall wash his garments and bathe his flesh in water, and then he may enter the camp, and the kohen shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:7 + 111 They shall take for that unclean person from the ashes of the burnt purification offering, and it shall be placed in a vessel filled with spring water. Bamidbar 19:17 + 97 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 20:7 + 126 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 + 117 Moses did as the Lord commanded him. They ascended Mount Hor in the presence of the entire congregation. Bamidbar 20:27 + 135 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 + 97 Then Israel sang this song: Ascend, O well, sing to it! Bamidbar 21:17 + 117 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 + 126 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 + 112 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 + 116 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 + 129 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 + 145 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 + 116 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 + 112 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 + 141 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 + 140 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 + 105 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 + 108 Distress the Midianites, and you shall smite them. Bamidbar 25:17 + 121 These were the families of the Reubenites, and they numbered forty three thousand, seven hundred and thirty. Bamidbar 26:7 + 97 The family of the Arodites from Arod, the family of the Arelites from Areli. Bamidbar 26:17 + 101 These were the families of Zebulun according to those of them counted, sixty thousand and five hundred. Bamidbar 26:27 + 93 These were the families of the descendants of Ephraim according to those of them counted, thirty two thousand and five hundred; these were the descendants of Joseph according to their families. Bamidbar 26:37 + 97 These were the families of the descendants of Asher according to those of them counted, fifty three thousand and four hundred. Bamidbar 26:47 + 119 These were the numbers of the Levites according to their families: the family of the Gershonites from Gershon, the family of the Kohathites from Kohath, the family of the Merarites from Merari. Bamidbar 26:57 + 122 The daughters of Zelophehad the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of Manasseh the son of Joseph, came forward, and his daughters' names were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. Bamidbar 27:1 + 112 They stood before Moses and before Eleazar the kohen and before the chieftains and the entire congregation at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, saying, Bamidbar 27:2 + 103 "Our father died in the desert, but he was not in the assembly that banded together against the Lord in Korah's assembly, but he died for his own sin, and he had no sons. Bamidbar 27:3 + 109 Why should our father's name be eliminated from his family because he had no son? Give us a portion along with our father's brothers. " Bamidbar 27:4 + 112 So Moses brought their case before the Lord. Bamidbar 27:5 + 103 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 27:6 + 114 Zelophehad's daughters speak justly. You shall certainly give them a portion of inheritance along with their father's brothers, and you shall transfer their father's inheritance to them. Bamidbar 27:7 + 121 Speak to the children of Israel saying: If a man dies and has no son, you shall transfer his inheritance to his daughter. Bamidbar 27:8 + 99 If he has no daughter, you shall give over his inheritance to his brothers. Bamidbar 27:9 + 103 If he has no brothers, you shall give over his inheritance to his father's brothers. Bamidbar 27:10 + 141 If his father has no brothers, you shall give over his inheritance to the kinsman closest to him in his family, who shall inherit it. This shall remain a decreed statute, as the Lord commanded Moses. Bamidbar 27:11 + 119 The Lord said to Moses, "Go up to this mount Abarim and look at the land that I have given to the children of Israel. Bamidbar 27:12 + 110 And when you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, just as Aaron your brother was gathered. Bamidbar 27:13 + 143 Because you disobeyed My command in the desert of Zin when the congregation quarreled, when you were to sanctify Me through the water before their eyes; these were the waters of dispute at Kadesh, in the desert of Zin. Bamidbar 27:14 + 103 Moses spoke to the Lord, saying: Bamidbar 27:15 + 91 "Let the Lord, the God of spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation, Bamidbar 27:16 + 98 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 + 122 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 + 107 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 + 129 You shall bestow some of your majesty upon him so that all the congregation of the children of Israel will take heed. Bamidbar 27:20 + 133 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 + 112 Moses did as the Lord had commanded him, and he took Joshua and presented him before Eleazar the kohen and before the entire congregation. Bamidbar 27:22 + 127 He laid his hands upon him and commanded him, in accordance with what the Lord had spoken to Moses. Bamidbar 27:23 + 94 Its libation shall be one quarter of a hin for each lamb, to be poured on the holy altar as a libation of strong wine to the Lord. Bamidbar 28:7 + 105 On the fifteenth day of this month, a festival begins; you shall eat unleavened bread for seven days. Bamidbar 28:17 + 105 You shall offer up a burnt offering with a spirit of satisfaction to the Lord: two young bulls, one ram, and seven lambs in the first year. Bamidbar 28:27 + 114 And on the tenth day of this seventh month, there shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall afflict your souls. You shall not perform any work. Bamidbar 29:7 + 94 And on the second day, twelve young bulls, two rams, and fourteen lambs in the first year, all unblemished. Bamidbar 29:17 + 107 And their meal offerings and their libations, for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, as prescribed. Bamidbar 29:27 + 108 Their meal offerings and their libations, for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, as prescribed. Bamidbar 29:37 + 98 But if she is betrothed to a man, with her vows upon her or by an utterance of her lips which she has imposed upon herself, Bamidbar 30:7 + 124 These are the statutes which the Lord commanded Moses concerning a man and his wife, a father and his daughter, in her youth, while in her father's house. Bamidbar 30:17 + 106 They mounted an attack against Midian, as the Lord had commanded Moses, and they killed every male. Bamidbar 31:7 + 110 So now kill every male child, and every woman who can lie intimately with a man you shall kill. Bamidbar 31:17 + 96 And you shall divide the plunder equally between the warriors who went out to battle and the entire congregation. Bamidbar 31:27 + 95 The tax to the Lord from the sheep was six hundred and seventy five. Bamidbar 31:37 + 133 Moses took one part out of fifty from the half of the children of Israel, the people and the animals, and gave them to the Levites, the guardians of the Lord's sanctuary as G-d commanded Moses. Bamidbar 31:47 + 121 Why do you discourage the children of Israel from crossing over to the land which the Lord has given them? Bamidbar 32:7 + 130 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 + 101 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 + 94 The descendants of Reuben built Heshbon, Elealeh, and Kirjathaim. Bamidbar 32:37 + 104 They journeyed from Etham and camped in Pi hahiroth, which faces Baal zephon; and they camped in front of Migdol. Bamidbar 33:7 + 93 They journeyed from Kivroth hataavah and camped in Hazeroth Bamidbar 33:17 + 83 They journeyed from Tahath and camped in Tarah. Bamidbar 33:27 + 81 They journeyed from Kadesh and camped at Mount Hor, at the edge of the land of Edom. Bamidbar 33:37 + 102 They journeyed from Almon diblathaimah and camped in the mountains of Abarim, in front of Nebo. Bamidbar 33:47 + 101 This shall be your northern border: From the Great [Mediterranean] Sea turn yourselves toward Mount Hor. Bamidbar 34:7 + 110 These are the names of the men who shall inherit the land on your behalf: Eleazar the kohen and Joshua the son of Nun. Bamidbar 34:17 + 91 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Asher, Ahihud the son of Shelomi. Bamidbar 34:27 + 100 All the cities you shall give to the Levites shall number forty eight cities, them with their open spaces. Bamidbar 35:7 + 105 If he struck him with a fist sized stone which is deadly, and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. Bamidbar 35:17 + 104 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 + 120 Thus, the inheritance of the children of Israel will not be transferred from tribe to tribe, for each person from the children of Israel will remain attached to the inheritance of his father's tribe. Bamidbar 36:7 + 141 Turn and journey, and come to the mountain of the Amorites and to all its neighboring places, in the plain, on the mountain, and in the lowland, and in the south and by the seashore, the land of the Canaanites, and the Lebanon, until the great river, the Euphrates River. Devarim 1:7 + 150 You shall not favor persons in judgment; [rather] you shall hear the small just as the great; you shall not fear any man, for the judgment is upon the Lord, and the case that is too difficult for you, bring to me, and I will hear it. Devarim 1:17 + 140 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 + 117 The Lord was also angry with me because of you, saying, Neither will you go there. Devarim 1:37 + 130 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 + 102 That the Lord spoke to me saying, Devarim 2:17 + 152 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 + 153 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 + 137 But all the beasts and the spoils of the cities, we took as spoil for ourselves. Devarim 3:7 + 113 The plain, the Jordan and the border thereof, from Kinnereth to the sea of the plain the Sea of Salt, under the waterfalls of Pisgah, eastward. Devarim 3:17 + 138 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 + 121 For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the Lord our God is at all times that we call upon Him? Devarim 4:7 + 114 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the heaven, Devarim 4:17 + 135 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 + 127 And because He loved your forefathers and chose their seed after them, and He brought you out of Egypt before Him with His great strength, Devarim 4:37 + 113 And they possessed his land and the land of Og, king of the Bashan, the two kings of the Amorites, who were on the side of the Jordan, towards the sunrise, Devarim 4:47 + 107 You shall not have the gods of others in My presence. Devarim 5:7 + 116 You shall not murder. And you shall not commit adultery. And you shall not steal. And you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Devarim 5:17 + 113 Go say to them, 'Return to your tents.' Devarim 5:27 + 138 And you shall teach them to your sons and speak of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk on the way, and when you lie down and when you rise up. Devarim 6:7 + 129 Diligently keep the commandments of the Lord, your God, and His testimonies. and His statutes, which He has commanded you. Devarim 6:17 + 131 When the Lord, your God, brings you into the land to which you are coming to possess it, He will cast away many nations from before you: the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, seven nations more numerous and powerful than you. Devarim 7:1 + 122 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 + 110 You shall not intermarry with them; you shall not give your daughter to his son, and you shall not take his daughter for your son. Devarim 7:3 + 140 For he will turn away your son from following Me, and they will worship the gods of others, and the wrath of the Lord will be kindled against you, and He will quickly destroy you. Devarim 7:4 + 151 But so shall you do to them: You shall demolish their altars and smash their monuments, and cut down their asherim trees, and burn their graven images with fire. Devarim 7:5 + 128 For you are a holy people to the Lord, your God: the Lord your God has chosen you to be His treasured people, out of all the peoples upon the face of the earth. Devarim 7:6 + 125 Not because you are more numerous than any people did the Lord delight in you and choose you, for you are the least of all the peoples. Devarim 7:7 + 156 But because of the Lord's love for you, and because He keeps the oath He swore to your forefathers, the Lord took you out with a strong hand and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. Devarim 7:8 + 137 Know, therefore, that the Lord, your God He is God, the faithful God, Who keeps the covenant and loving kindness with those who love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations. Devarim 7:9 + 141 And He repays those who hate Him, to their face, to cause them to perish; He will not delay the one who hates Him, but he will repay him to his face. Devarim 7:10 + 115 You shall therefore, observe the commandments, the statutes, and the ordinances, which I command you this day to do. Devarim 7:11 + 128 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 + 152 And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your soil, your grain, your wine, and your oil, the offspring of your cattle and the choice of your flocks, in the land which He swore to your forefathers to give you. Devarim 7:13 + 132 You shall be blessed above all peoples: There will be no sterile male or barren female among you or among your livestock. Devarim 7:14 + 136 And the Lord will remove from you all illness, and all of the evil diseases of Egypt which you knew, He will not set upon you, but He will lay them upon all your enemies. Devarim 7:15 + 120 And you shall consume all the peoples which the Lord your God gives you; you shall not spare them, nor shall you worship their gods, for that will be a snare for you. Devarim 7:16 + 108 Will you say to yourself, "These nations are more numerous than I; how will I be able to drive them out"? Devarim 7:17 + 125 You shall not fear them. You shall surely remember what the Lord, your God, did to Pharaoh and to all of Egypt: Devarim 7:18 + 132 The great trials that your eyes saw, the signs, the wonders, the mighty hand, and the outstretched arm with which the Lord, your God, brought you out. So will the Lord, Your God, do to all the peoples you fear. Devarim 7:19 + 133 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 + 113 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 + 133 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 + 119 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 + 120 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 + 136 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 + 121 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 + 134 For the Lord your God is bringing you to a good land, a land with brooks of water, fountains and depths, that emerge in valleys and mountains, Devarim 8:7 + 122 And you will say to yourself, "My strength and the might of my hand that has accumulated this wealth for me." Devarim 8:17 + 133 Remember do not forget, how you angered the Lord, your God, in the desert; from the day that you went out of the land of Egypt, until you came to this place, you have been rebelling against the Lord. Devarim 9:7 + 125 So I grasped the two tablets, cast them out of my two hands, and shattered them before your eyes. Devarim 9:17 + 141 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 + 121 From there, they journeyed to Gudgodah, and from Gudgodah to Yotvath, a land with streams of water. Devarim 10:7 + 149 For the Lord, your God, is God of gods and the Lord of the lords, the great mighty and awesome God, Who will show no favor, nor will He take a bribe. Devarim 10:17 + 132 But your eyes, which have seen all the great work of the Lord, which He did. Devarim 11:7 + 136 And the wrath of the Lord will be kindled against you, and He will close off the heavens, and there will be no rain, and the ground will not give its produce, and you will perish quickly from upon the good land that the Lord gives you. Devarim 11:17 + 114 The blessing, that you will heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today; Devarim 11:27 + 129 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 + 136 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 + 123 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 + 126 If your brother, the son of your mother, tempts you in secret or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your embrace, or your friend, who is as your own soul saying, "Let us go and worship other gods, which neither you, nor your forefathers have known." Devarim 13:7 + 149 And you shall collect all its spoil into the midst of its open square, and burn with fire the city and all its spoil, completely, for the Lord, your God; and it shall be a heap of destruction forever, never to be rebuilt. Devarim 13:17 + 148 But you shall not eat of those that chew the cud, or of those that have the split hooves: the cloven one, the camel, the hyrax, and the hare, for they chew the cud, but do not have split hooves; they are unclean for you. Devarim 14:7 + 98 And the pelican, and the magpie, and the cormorant; Devarim 14:17 + 120 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 + 128 If there will be among you a needy person, from one of your brothers in one of your cities, in your land the Lord, your God, is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, and you shall not close your hand from your needy brother. Devarim 15:7 + 129 Then you shall take an awl and put it through his ear and into the door, and he shall be a servant to you forever; and also to your maidservant you shall do likewise. Devarim 15:17 + 136 And you shall roast it and eat it in the place which the Lord, your God, will choose, and you shall turn away in the morning and go to your dwellings. Devarim 16:7 + 128 Every man shall bring as much as he can afford, according to the blessing of the Lord, your God, which He has given you. Devarim 16:17 + 149 You shall set up judges and law enforcement officials for yourself in all your cities that the Lord, your God, is giving you, for your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. Devarim 16:17 + 120 You shall not sacrifice to the Lord, your God, an ox or a sheep that has in it a blemish or any bad thing, for that is an abomination to the Lord, your God. Devarim 17:1 + 131 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 + 103 And who will go and worship other gods and prostrate himself before them, or to the sun, the moon, or any of the host of the heavens, which I have not commanded; Devarim 17:3 + 118 And it will be told to you, and you will hear it, and investigate thoroughly, and behold, the matter coincides; this abomination has been perpetrated in Israel. Devarim 17:4 + 120 Then you shall bring out that man or that woman who has committed this evil thing, to your cities, the man or the woman, and you shall pelt them with stones, and they shall die. Devarim 17:5 + 109 By the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall the one liable to death be put to death; he shall not be put to death by the mouth of one witness. Devarim 17:6 + 116 The hand of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people, and you shall abolish evil from among you. Devarim 17:7 + 139 If a matter eludes you in judgment, between blood and blood, between judgment and judgment, or between lesion and lesion, words of dispute in your cities, then you shall rise and go up to the place the Lord, your God, chooses. Devarim 17:8 + 124 And you shall come to the Levitic kohanim and to the judge who will be in those days, and you shall inquire, and they will tell you the words of judgment. Devarim 17:9 + 115 And you shall do according to the word they tell you, from the place the Lord will choose, and you shall observe to do according to all they instruct you. Devarim 17:10 + 131 According to the law they instruct you and according to the judgment they say to you, you shall do; you shall not divert from the word they tell you, either right or left. Devarim 17:11 + 145 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 + 116 And all the people shall listen and fear, and they shall no longer act wantonly. Devarim 17:13 + 126 When you come to the land the Lord, your God, is giving you, and you possess it and live therein, and you say, "I will set a king over myself, like all the nations around me," Devarim 17:14 + 132 You shall set a king over you, one whom the Lord, your God, chooses; from among your brothers, you shall set a king over yourself; you shall not appoint a foreigner over yourself, one who is not your brother. Devarim 17:15 + 140 Only, he may not acquire many horses for himself, so that he will not bring the people back to Egypt in order to acquire many horses, for the Lord said to you, "You shall not return that way any more." Devarim 17:16 + 138 And he shall not take many wives for himself, and his heart must not turn away, and he shall not acquire much silver and gold for himself. Devarim 17:17 + 130 And it will be, when he sits upon his royal throne, that he shall write for himself two copies of this Torah on a scroll from that Torah which is before the Levitic kohanim. Devarim 17:18 + 128 And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, so that he may learn to fear the Lord, his God, to keep all the words of this Torah and these statutes, to perform them, Devarim 17:19 + 149 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 + 108 And he may serve in the name of the Lord, his God, just like all his Levite brothers, who stand there before the Lord. Devarim 18:7 + 103 And the Lord said to me, "They have done well in what they have spoken. Devarim 18:17 + 111 Therefore, I command you, saying, "You shall separate for yourself three cities." Devarim 19:7 + 120 Then the two men between whom the controversy exists shall stand before the Lord, before the kohanim and the judges who will be in those days. Devarim 19:17 + 128 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 + 127 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 + 121 And they shall announce and say, "Our hands did not shed this blood, nor did our eyes see this crime." Devarim 21:7 + 134 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 + 141 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 + 122 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 + 116 Because he found her in the field. The betrothed girl had cried out, but there was no one to save her. Devarim 22:27 + 129 You shall not ever seek out their welfare or their good, all your days. Devarim 23:7 + 135 Rather, he shall be allowed to reside among you, wherever he chooses within any of your cities, where it is good for him. You shall not oppress him. Devarim 23:17 + 131 If a man is discovered kidnapping any person from among his brothers, of the children of Israel, and treats him as a slave and sells him that thief shall die, so that you shall clear out the evil from among you. Devarim 24:7 + 126 You shall not pervert the judgment of a stranger or an orphan, and you shall not take a widow's garment as security for a loan. Devarim 24:17 + 139 But if the man does not wish to take his brother's wife, the brother's wife shall go up to the gate, to the elders, and say, "My husband's brother has refused to perpetuate his brother's name in Israel he does not wish to perform the obligation of a husband's brother with me." Devarim 25:7 + 113 You shall remember what Amalek did to you on the way, when you went out of Egypt, Devarim 25:17 + 108 So we cried out to the Lord, God of our fathers, and the Lord heard our voice and saw our affliction, our toil, and our oppression. Devarim 26:7 + 136 You have selected the Lord this day, to be your God, and to walk in His ways, and to observe His statutes, His commandments and His ordinances, and to obey Him. Devarim 26:17 + 126 And Moses and the elders of Israel commanded the people, saying, Observe all of the commandment that I command you this day. Devarim 27:1 + 129 And it will be, on the day that you cross the Jordan to the land the Lord, your God, is giving you, that you shall set up for yourself huge stones, and plaster them with lime. Devarim 27:2 + 139 When you cross, you shall write upon them all the words of this Torah, in order that you may come to the land which the Lord, your God, is giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, God of your forefathers, has spoken to you. Devarim 27:3 + 137 And it will be, when you cross the Jordan, that you shall set up these stones, regarding which I command you this day on Mount Ebal, and you shall plaster them with lime. Devarim 27:4 + 115 And there, you shall build an altar to the Lord, your God, an altar of stones. You shall not wield any iron upon them. Devarim 27:5 + 114 You shall build the altar of the Lord, your God, out of whole stones. And on it, you shall offer up burnt offerings to the Lord, your God. Devarim 27:6 + 116 And you shall slaughter peace offerings, and you shall eat there, and you shall rejoice before the Lord, your God. Devarim 27:7 + 111 You shall write upon the stones all the words of this Torah, very clearly. Devarim 27:8 + 145 Moses and the Levitic priests spoke to all Israel, saying, "Pay attention and listen, O Israel! This day, you have become a people to the Lord, your God. Devarim 27:9 + 126 You shall therefore obey the Lord, your God, and fulfill His commandments and His statutes, which I command you this day. Devarim 27:10 + 108 And Moses commanded the people on that day, saying, Devarim 27:11 + 119 When you cross the Jordan, the following shall stand upon Mount Gerizim to bless the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin. Devarim 27:12 + 121 And the following shall stand upon Mount Ebal for the curse: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naftali. Devarim 27:13 + 110 The Levites shall speak up, saying to every individual of Israel, in a loud voice: Devarim 27:14 + 117 Cursed be the man who makes any graven or molten image an abomination to the Lord, the handiwork of a craftsman and sets it up in secret! And all the people shall respond, saying, Amen! Devarim 27:15 + 110 Cursed be he who degrades his father and mother. And all the people shall say, Amen! Devarim 27:16 + 107 Cursed be he who moves back his neighbor's landmark. And all the people shall say, Amen! Devarim 27:17 + 121 Cursed be he who misguides a blind person on the way. And all the people shall say, Amen! Devarim 27:18 + 116 Cursed be he who perverts the judgment of the stranger, the orphan, or the widow. And all the people shall say, 'Amen!' Devarim 27:19 + 131 Cursed be he who lies with his father's wife, thus uncovering the corner of his father's garment. And all the people shall say, Amen! Devarim 27:20 + 93 Cursed be he who lies with any animal. And all the people shall say, 'Amen!' Devarim 27:21 + 112 Cursed be he who lies with his sister, his father's daughter or his mother's daughter. And all the people shall say, 'Amen!' Devarim 27:22 + 99 Cursed be he who lies with his mother in law. And all the people shall say, 'Amen!' Devarim 27:23 + 124 Cursed be he who strikes his fellow in secret. And all the people shall say, Amen! Devarim 27:24 + 116 Cursed be he who takes a bribe to put an innocent person to death. And all the people shall say, 'Amen!' Devarim 27:26 + 111 Cursed be he who does not uphold the words of this Torah, to fulfill them. And all the people shall say, 'Amen!' Devarim 27:26 + 132 The Lord will cause your enemies who rise up against you, to be beaten before you; they will come out against you in one direction, but they will flee from you in seven directions. Devarim 28:7 + 105 Cursed will be your food basket and your kneading bowl. Devarim 28:17 + 124 The Lord will strike you with the boils of Egypt, with hemorrhoids, with oozing sores, and with dry lesions, from which you will be unable to be cured. Devarim 28:27 + 128 And you will become an object of astonishment, an example, and a topic of discussion, among all the peoples to whom the Lord will lead you. Devarim 28:37 + 135 Because you did not serve the Lord, your God, with happiness and with gladness of heart, when you had an abundance of everything. Devarim 28:47 + 122 And the infants who emerge from between her legs, and her own children whom she will bear, for she will eat them in secret, in destitution, in the siege and the desperation which your enemies will inflict upon you, in your cities. Devarim 28:57 + 141 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 + 126 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 + 143 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 + 132 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 + 124 And the Lord, your God, will place all these curses upon your enemies and upon your adversaries, who pursued you. Devarim 30:7 + 116 But if your heart deviates and you do not listen, and you will be drawn astray, and you will prostrate yourself to other deities and serve them, Devarim 30:17 + 139 And Moses called Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel, Be strong and courageous! For you shall come with this people to the land which the Lord swore to their forefathers to give them. And you shall apportion it to them as an inheritance. Devarim 31:7 + 135 And My fury will rage against them on that day, and I will abandon them and hide My face from them, and they will be consumed, and many evils and troubles will befall them, and they will say on that day, Is it not because our God is no longer among us, that these evils have befallen us? Devarim 31:17 + 108 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 + 98 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 + 130 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 + 127 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 + 98 Then He will say, "Where is their deity, the rock in which they trusted, Devarim 32:37 + 112 For it is not an empty thing for you, for it is your life, and through this thing, you will lengthen your days upon the land to which you are crossing over the Jordan, to possess it." Devarim 32:47 + 137 May this also be for Judah." And he [Moses] said, "O Lord, hearken to Judah's voice and bring him to his people; may his hands do battle for him, and may You be a help against his adversaries." Devarim 33:7 + 124 To his firstborn ox is given glory. His horns are the horns of a re'em. With them, he will gore peoples together throughout all the ends of the earth these are the myriads of Ephraim, and these are the thousands of Manasseh. Devarim 33:17 + 129 Which are the abode for the God Who precedes all, and below, are the mighty ones of the world. He expelled the enemy from before you, and said, 'Destroy!' Devarim 33:27 + 123 Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. His eye had not dimmed, nor had he lost his natural freshness. Devarim 34:7 + 152 On January 21st of 2017, the day after I take the oath of office, Americans will finally wake up in a country where the laws of the United States are enforced. We are going to be considerate and compassionate to everyone. But my greatest compassion will be for our own struggling citizens. Donald Trump + 129 If you look - look at - I mean, look at what's going on with your gasoline prices. They're going to go to $5, $6, $7 and we don't have anybody in Washington that calls OPEC and says, 'Fellas, it's time. It's over. You're not going to do it anymore.' Donald Trump + 135 I could never have imagined that firing 67 people on national television would actually make me more popular, especially with the younger generation. Donald Trump + 140 What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. Donald Trump + 96 Your body is 75% water, and I am thirsty. + 125 We live in a society bloated with data yet starved for wisdom. We're connected 24/7, yet anxiety, fear, depression and loneliness is at an all-time high. We must course-correct. Elizabeth Kapu'uwailani Lindsey + 152 The Boer War occurred 37 years ago. Boer means farmer. Many criticized a great power like Britain for trying to wipe out the Boers. Upon making inquiry, I found all the gold and diamond mines of South Africa were owned by Jews; that Rothschild controlled gold; Samuels controlled silver, Baum controlled other mining, and Moses controlled base metals. Anything these people touch they inevitably pollute. Henry Hamilton Beamish + 112 Snctm can generate 1875$ from one men in night, or 75000$ from one gentleman in year. + 182 "Appreciate the qualitative distance between the body and the soul. The body is one small speck of humanity. You couldn't find your own body among the mass of 7 billion human beings. Beyond that, humanity is just a speck in the mass of creatures on this planet. And earth is just a speck in the solar system. And the solar system is just a speck of the universe. So what's your body? Next to nothing. By contrast, your soul is part of the Almighty G-d, Who encompasses and transcends the entire universe. Therefore, if you're part of G-d, you're part of everything. If the choice is body or soul, which makes more sense to identify with?" Rabbi Noah Weinberg + 417 Just for fun I recently asked Erin, “Now that the kids are in summer school, don’t you think it’s about time you went out and got yourself a job? I hate seeing you wallow in unemployment for so long.” She smiled and said, “Wow. I have been unemployed a really long time. That’s weird… I like it!” Neither of us have had jobs since the ’90s (my only job was in 1992), so we’ve been self-employed for quite a while. In our household it’s a running joke for one of us to say to the other, “Maybe you should get a job, derelict!” It’s like the scene in The Three Stooges where Moe tells Curly to get a job, and Curly backs away, saying, “No, please… not that! Anything but that!” It’s funny that when people reach a certain age, such as after graduating college, they assume it’s time to go out and get a job. But like many things the masses do, just because everyone does it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. In fact, if you’re reasonably intelligent, getting a job is one of the worst things you can do to support yourself. There are far better ways to make a living than selling yourself into indentured servitude. Here are some reasons you should do everything in your power to avoid getting a job: 1. Income for dummies. Getting a job and trading your time for money may seem like a good idea. There’s only one problem with it. It’s stupid! It’s the stupidest way you can possibly generate income! This is truly income for dummies. Why is getting a job so dumb? Because you only get paid when you’re working. Don’t you see a problem with that, or have you been so thoroughly brainwashed into thinking it’s reasonable and intelligent to only earn income when you’re working? Have you never considered that it might be better to be paid even when you’re not working? Who taught you that you could only earn income while working? Some other brainwashed employee perhaps? Don’t you think your life would be much easier if you got paid while you were eating, sleeping, and playing with the kids too? Why not get paid 24/7? Get paid whether you work or not. Don’t your plants grow even when you aren’t tending to them? Why not your bank account? Who cares how many hours you work? Only a handful of people on this entire planet care how much time you spend at the office. Most of us won’t even notice whether you work 6 hours a week or 60. But if you have something of value to provide that matters to us, a number of us will be happy to pull out our wallets and pay you for it. We don’t care about your time — we only care enough to pay for the value we receive. Do you really care how long it took me to write this article? Would you pay me twice as much if it took me 6 hours vs. only 3? Non-dummies often start out on the traditional income for dummies path. So don’t feel bad if you’re just now realizing you’ve been suckered. Non-dummies eventually realize that trading time for money is indeed extremely dumb and that there must be a better way. And of course there is a better way. The key is to de-couple your value from your time. Smart people build systems that generate income 24/7, especially passive income. This can include starting a business, building a web site, becoming an investor, or generating royalty income from creative work. The system delivers the ongoing value to people and generates income from it, and once it’s in motion, it runs continuously whether you tend to it or not. From that moment on, the bulk of your time can be invested in increasing your income (by refining your system or spawning new ones) instead of merely maintaining your income. This web site is an example of such a system. At the time of this writing, it generates about $9000 a month in income for me (update: $40,000 a month as of 10/31/06), and it isn’t my only income stream either. I write each article just once (fixed time investment), and people can extract value from them year after year. The web server delivers the value, and other systems (most of which I didn’t even build and don’t even understand) collect income and deposit it automatically into my bank account. It’s not perfectly passive, but I love writing and would do it for free anyway. But of course it cost me a lot of money to launch this business, right? Um, yeah, $9 is an awful lot these days (to register the domain name). Everything after that was profit. Sure it takes some upfront time and effort to design and implement your own income-generating systems. But you don’t have to reinvent the wheel — feel free to use existing systems like ad networks and affiliate programs. Once you get going, you won’t have to work so many hours to support yourself. Wouldn’t it be nice to be out having dinner with your spouse, knowing that while you’re eating, you’re earning money? If you want to keep working long hours because you enjoy it, go right ahead. If you want to sit around doing nothing, feel free. As long as your system continues delivering value to others, you’ll keep getting paid whether you’re working or not. Your local bookstore is filled with books containing workable systems others have already designed, tested, and debugged. Nobody is born knowing how to start a business or generate investment income, but you can easily learn it. How long it takes you to figure it out is irrelevant because the time is going to pass anyway. You might as well emerge at some future point as the owner of income-generating systems as opposed to a lifelong wage slave. This isn’t all or nothing. If your system only generates a few hundred dollars a month, that’s a significant step in the right direction. 2. Limited experience. You might think it’s important to get a job to gain experience. But that’s like saying you should play golf to get experience playing golf. You gain experience from living, regardless of whether you have a job or not. A job only gives you experience at that job, but you gain “experience” doing just about anything, so that’s no real benefit at all. Sit around doing nothing for a couple years, and you can call yourself an experienced meditator, philosopher, or politician. The problem with getting experience from a job is that you usually just repeat the same limited experience over and over. You learn a lot in the beginning and then stagnate. This forces you to miss other experiences that would be much more valuable. And if your limited skill set ever becomes obsolete, then your experience won’t be worth squat. In fact, ask yourself what the experience you’re gaining right now will be worth in 20-30 years. Will your job even exist then? Consider this. Which experience would you rather gain? The knowledge of how to do a specific job really well — one that you can only monetize by trading your time for money — or the knowledge of how to enjoy financial abundance for the rest of your life without ever needing a job again? Now I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have the latter experience. That seems a lot more useful in the real world, wouldn’t you say? 3. Lifelong domestication. Getting a job is like enrolling in a human domestication program. You learn how to be a good pet. Look around you. Really look. What do you see? Are these the surroundings of a free human being? Or are you living in a cage for unconscious animals? Have you fallen in love with the color beige? How’s your obedience training coming along? Does your master reward your good behavior? Do you get disciplined if you fail to obey your master’s commands? Is there any spark of free will left inside you? Or has your conditioning made you a pet for life? Humans are not meant to be raised in cages. You poor thing… 4. Too many mouths to feed. Employee income is the most heavily taxed there is. In the USA you can expect that about half your salary will go to taxes. The tax system is designed to disguise how much you’re really giving up because some of those taxes are paid by your employer, and some are deducted from your paycheck. But you can bet that from your employer’s perspective, all of those taxes are considered part of your pay, as well as any other compensation you receive such as benefits. Even the rent for the office space you consume is considered, so you must generate that much more value to cover it. You might feel supported by your corporate environment, but keep in mind that you’re the one paying for it. Another chunk of your income goes to owners and investors. That’s a lot of mouths to feed. It isn’t hard to understand why employees pay the most in taxes relative to their income. After all, who has more control over the tax system? Business owners and investors or employees? You only get paid a fraction of the real value you generate. Your real salary may be more than triple what you’re paid, but most of that money you’ll never see. It goes straight into other people’s pockets. What a generous person you are! 5. Way too risky. Many employees believe getting a job is the safest and most secure way to support themselves. Morons. Social conditioning is amazing. It’s so good it can even make people believe the exact opposite of the truth. Does putting yourself in a position where someone else can turn off all your income just by saying two words (“You’re fired”) sound like a safe and secure situation to you? Does having only one income stream honestly sound more secure than having 10? The idea that a job is the most secure way to generate income is just silly. You can’t have security if you don’t have control, and employees have the least control of anyone. If you’re an employee, then your real job title should be professional gambler. 6. Having an evil bovine master. When you run into an idiot in the entrepreneurial world, you can turn around and head the other way. When you run into an idiot in the corporate world, you have to turn around and say, “Sorry, boss.” Did you know that the word boss comes from the Dutch word baas, which historically means master? Another meaning of the word boss is “a cow or bovine.” And in many video games, the boss is the evil dude that you have to kill at the end of a level. So if your boss is really your evil bovine master, then what does that make you? Nothing but a turd in the herd. Who’s your daddy? 7. Begging for money. When you want to increase your income, do you have to sit up and beg your master for more money? Does it feel good to be thrown some extra Scooby Snacks now and then? Or are you free to decide how much you get paid without needing anyone’s permission but your own? If you have a business and one customer says “no” to you, you simply say “next.” 8. An inbred social life. Many people treat their jobs as their primary social outlet. They hang out with the same people working in the same field. Such incestuous relations are social dead ends. An exciting day includes deep conversations about the company’s switch from Sparkletts to Arrowhead, the delay of Microsoft’s latest operating system, and the unexpected delivery of more Bic pens. Consider what it would be like to go outside and talk to strangers. Ooooh… scary! Better stay inside where it’s safe. If one of your co-slaves gets sold to another master, do you lose a friend? If you work in a male-dominated field, does that mean you never get to talk to women above the rank of receptionist? Why not decide for yourself whom to socialize with instead of letting your master decide for you? Believe it or not, there are locations on this planet where free people congregate. Just be wary of those jobless folk — they’re a crazy bunch! 9. Loss of freedom. It takes a lot of effort to tame a human being into an employee. The first thing you have to do is break the human’s independent will. A good way to do this is to give them a weighty policy manual filled with nonsensical rules and regulations. This leads the new employee to become more obedient, fearing that s/he could be disciplined at any minute for something incomprehensible. Thus, the employee will likely conclude it’s safest to simply obey the master’s commands without question. Stir in some office politics for good measure, and we’ve got a freshly minted mind slave. As part of their obedience training, employees must be taught how to dress, talk, move, and so on. We can’t very well have employees thinking for themselves, now can we? That would ruin everything. God forbid you should put a plant on your desk when it’s against the company policy. Oh no, it’s the end of the world! Cindy has a plant on her desk! Summon the enforcers! Send Cindy back for another round of sterility training! Free human beings think such rules and regulations are silly of course. The only policy they need is: “Be smart. Be nice. Do what you love. Have fun.” 10. Becoming a coward. Have you noticed that employed people have an almost endless capacity to whine about problems at their companies? But they don’t really want solutions — they just want to vent and make excuses why it’s all someone else’s fault. It’s as if getting a job somehow drains all the free will out of people and turns them into spineless cowards. If you can’t call your boss a jerk now and then without fear of getting fired, you’re no longer free. You’ve become your master’s property. When you work around cowards all day long, don’t you think it’s going to rub off on you? Of course it will. It’s only a matter of time before you sacrifice the noblest parts of your humanity on the altar of fear: first courage… then honesty… then honor and integrity… and finally your independent will. You sold your humanity for nothing but an illusion. And now your greatest fear is discovering the truth of what you’ve become. I don’t care how badly you’ve been beaten down. It is never too late to regain your courage. Never! Still want a job? If you’re currently a well-conditioned, well-behaved employee, your most likely reaction to the above will be defensiveness. It’s all part of the conditioning. But consider that if the above didn’t have a grain of truth to it, you wouldn’t have an emotional reaction at all. This is only a reminder of what you already know. You can deny your cage all you want, but the cage is still there. Perhaps this all happened so gradually that you never noticed it until now… like a lobster enjoying a nice warm bath. If any of this makes you mad, that’s a step in the right direction. Anger is a higher level of consciousness than apathy, so it’s a lot better than being numb all the time. Any emotion — even confusion — is better than apathy. If you work through your feelings instead of repressing them, you’ll soon emerge on the doorstep of courage. And when that happens, you’ll have the will to actually do something about your situation and start living like the powerful human being you were meant to be instead of the domesticated pet you’ve been trained to be. Happily jobless What’s the alternative to getting a job? The alternative is to remain happily jobless for life and to generate income through other means. Realize that you earn income by providing value — not time — so find a way to provide your best value to others, and charge a fair price for it. One of the simplest and most accessible ways is to start your own business. Whatever work you’d otherwise do via employment, find a way to provide that same value directly to those who will benefit most from it. It takes a bit more time to get going, but your freedom is easily worth the initial investment of time and energy. Then you can buy your own Scooby Snacks for a change. And of course everything you learn along the way, you can share with others to generate even more value. So even your mistakes can be monetized. One of the greatest fears you’ll confront is that you may not have any real value to offer others. Maybe being an employee and getting paid by the hour is the best you can do. Maybe you just aren’t worth that much. That line of thinking is all just part of your conditioning. It’s absolute nonsense. As you begin to dump such brainwashing, you’ll soon recognize that you have the ability to provide enormous value to others and that people will gladly pay you for it. There’s only one thing that prevents you from seeing this truth — fear. All you really need is the courage to be yourself. Your real value is rooted in who you are, not what you do. The only thing you need actually do is express your real self to the world. You’ve been told all sort of lies as to why you can’t do that. But you’ll never know true happiness and fulfillment until you summon the courage to do it anyway. The next time someone says to you, “Get a job,” I suggest you reply as Curly did: “No, please… not that! Anything but that!” Then poke him right in the eyes. You already know deep down that getting a job isn’t what you want. So don’t let anyone try to tell you otherwise. Learn to trust your inner wisdom, even if the whole world says you’re wrong and foolish for doing so. Years from now you’ll look back and realize it was one of the best decisions you ever made. Final thoughts While I wouldn’t recommend starting an online business for everyone, for many people it’s one of the best ways to generate income without a job. It has certainly worked disgustingly well for me. If you’re interested in learning more about this option, please check out Build Your Own Successful Online Business for details.

Learn to Raise those Vibrations and watch your life change dramatically. 1. Find something beautiful and appreciate it. Beauty is all around us, from the morning dew to the evening stars and everything in between. Most go through life not noticing all the beautiful things that are around them, and yes it's every where, so take the time to notice them, and appreciate them when you see it. Whether it's the scent of a flower or the way rain ripples in puddles of water, appreciate the beauty life has to offer. 2. Make a list of all that you are grateful for. Making a gratitude list shifts your vibrations from focusing on what you do not have to what is already abundant in your life. There is more to be grateful for than you could possibly imagine. You can start with “I'm Alive!” and expand from there. Gratitude is the Attitude. 3. Meditate. Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes and breath in and out. Too often we rush through our days with a scattered brain leaving us in a state of anxiety and stress, Meditation helps to calm your spirit down and put you in a peaceful state of mind. 10 Minuets of meditation a day can change your life forever. 4. Do something for someone else. Giving to someone else shifts your thinking from “I don't have enough, to I have more than enough to give to others.” Abundance is a high vibration. 5. Stop complaining and gossiping. Complaining and Gossip puts you in a very low vibration. Ask yourself “Are the things you are talking about bringing you more of what you want?” if not then, Stop complaining, and start finding ways to rejoice. 6. Move. Exercise. Get active. Vibration requires movement, the more you move the better your vibrations move. So Get Active! Dance! The happier you feel, the more you will draw happy experiences to yourself because you are operating at a different frequency. 7. Realize that you have more control over your life than you thought. You are not a victim to circumstance, past, family upbringing, trauma, or anything else. You can change your life in an instant. Just realize this. In many wisdom traditions this is called “total responsibility.” No one is responsible for how you feel right now but you. It isn't a curse. It's a blessing because it gives you your power back. 8. Breathe. Just sit and try to make your breath longer, fuller, and more relaxed. It has a direct affect on your nervous system and helps to calm you down. A calm vibration is a high vibration. 9. Do Something You're Afraid Of Fear holds us back from being in a state of love and happiness, and facing those fears opens you up to a greater world of possibilities. Fear of Heights? Go skydiving. Scared of public speaking, say a poem at an open mic. You'll begin to realize your fear was worse then the actual problem, and a sense of relief will wash over you. 10. Have a Meaningful Conversation with a Friend Rather than gossip or complaining, talk about you ideas. What do you have planned for yourself? what do you think is the nature of reality? Are we spiritual beings having a human experience? Talking about these things with someone helps to raise both your vibrations by thinking big. If you don't have someone to talk to about these kinds of things with, there's a community of higher minded individuals right here. Leave a comment down below and let's chat! Source: Mind Openerz + 211 The Science of The Heart: Our Hearts Actually Have It’s Own Intelligence We all know the difference between good vibes and bad vibes, but what is really happening at a scientific level when we talk about “vibes”? Or what about when we know someone is a bad person and can feel it in our gut, only to later find out that they are abusive and manipulative? While there is an energetic and spiritual side to this question, there is also a hard scientific explanation of what is occurring when we tap into the vibes of other people. With the development of new scientific instruments, intuition is now something being studied using the scientific method. The electromagnetic field of the heart The heart generates a powerful and measurable electromagnetic field. Magnetocardiography is the science of measure the field that is produced by the electrical activity within the heart. It’s mainstream scientific knowledge that the resonant frequencies of the field of your heart interacts with the fields of others around you. This effect is super strong within the first several feet in particular, but has been reported to be measured even at a distance of hundreds of meters. Most of us know that the heart holds an energy system of its own and is one of the 7 main chakras within our energy field, and that our heart centers can interact with the heart centers of others. But it turns that it’s more than just an energy center for emotions, spiritual health, or even nervous system activity. The heart almost acts as a second mind with its own sense of awareness. The Institute of Heartmath is an organization that focuses on the science of the heart and its relationship to the brain, nervous system, and the energy of the planet. Their studies have shown time and time again that the heart is a “little brain” and has an intuitive intelligence of it’s own independent of the mind. “We observed that the heart was acting as though it had a mind of its own and was profoundly influencing the way we perceive and respond to the world. In essence, it appeared that the heart was affecting intelligence and awareness.” The studies proving the heart’s intuitive intelligence In this study, 26 participants were shown a series of 45 pictures. 30 of the pictures were neutral, and 15 of them were emotionally arousing. The participants were hooked up to an electrocardiogram to measure cardiac accelerations and decelerations, and an electroencephalogram to measure heart-beat evoked “potentials” on the surface on the skin. What the found was incredible. A significantly greater heart rate deceleration occurred prior to future emotional stimuli compared to calm stimuli, and there was a significant difference in the refraction period within cardiac cycles for the emotional versus the calm. Both the heart and the brain were responding to the emotionally arousing photos prior to them even being seen by the person in linear time, but the heart was receiving the intuitive information prior to the brain. The also found that there was a large difference in intuitive intelligence between males and females, and the females pick up on intuitive information more often and at a quicker rate than men did. So the spiritual concept of females being more in touch with their intuitive and emotions is not just New Age philosophy. It’s now scientifically proven that intuition is real, the heart plays a more important role in intuitive information than the brain, and that females are more heart-centered. As they concluded in the original study found here: Once the prestimulus information is received in the psychophysiologic systems, it appears to be processed in the same way as conventional sensory input. This study presents compelling evidence that the body’s perceptual apparatus is continuously scanning the future. Why this is so amazing When you are in a room with someone and are picking up on their “vibes”, the electromagnetic field of your heart is resonating with theirs. Physiologically, you are literally interacting with the energy field of that person in a way that is scientifically measurable using a superconducting quantum interference device. At the same time, your heart is also picking up on things intuitively before stimulus has even presented itself as an event in space-time. You can feel even more confident in trusting your intuition knowing that it’s literally the intelligence of your heart continuously scanning the future for you. When you feel something wrong inside your heart center or when you get a bad feeling about someone around you, it’s not just a feeling. It’s your heart’s intelligence trying to protect you and warn you of potential threats and dangers around you. Trust the feelings and experiences you have inside your heart center, and allow yourself to fully feel and connect with whatever it is that arises within it. Just like you listen to the thoughts that arise with in the mind in your heart, it’s as equally important to listen to the intuitive feelings that arise within the mind of the heart. www.thespiritscience.net + 131 Sukkot is an awesome Biblical holiday that lasts for 7 days, with the 1st and 8th day being a Sabbath to the L-rd. You can find this in Numbers 29:12-38 + 126 The Torah Is the Spiritual Holy Land Just as the Community of Israel develops its special qualities to their full extent only in the land of Israel, so does each Jew only develop his special spiritual qualities by means of the Torah. The Torah is the spiritual holy land, corresponding to the unique nature of the Jewish soul. All other areas of knowledge are like other lands, and relate as such to the soulful greatness of the nation of Israel. Orot Hatorah 12:7 + 143 Torah Learning for the Creative Individual Outstanding people who are involved in Torah and who have a talent and inner predilection for ethical and poetic studies, for high thoughts and exalted wisdom, may not suppress or nullify that great desire. They must broaden it and make it great. They must every day engage in Torah learning that is broad and that transmits knowledge, wisdom and ability. Such people must dedicate most of their talent to such learning. They should not worry that this dedication may force them to curtail their practical Torah learning, leading them to satisfy themselves with learning that is easy, short and straight, allowing them to simply know the halachah and its reasoning clearly, and allowing them to simply clarify everything in its time with the calm learning of breadth of knowledge in (a) halachah, (b) the basic Talmud discussions and (c) the various approaches of the sages. This will not keep them from being sharp. True Torah sharpness is naturally born of this learning [mentioned above] of itself, and appears when it is needed. One does not need to work hard and spend a great deal of time on pilpul. As it is, most pilpul is intended for those [who, not being poetic,] turn to it to fulfill the thirst of their soul for the breadth of Torah and powerful intellectual freedom. A little pilpul is always good, even for those who are mostly involved in very spiritual matters; but the basic concern of these sensitive souls must be “to open the eyes of the blind; to bring the prisoner out of the jail; to take the man sitting in darkness out of his cell” (Is. 42:7). Eder Hay’kar, p. 140 + 164 Far from Words of Torah There are a number of causes that can keep us far from words of Torah and prevent them from entering our hearts. We must always know the cause of such an obstacle when we feel it, so that we may know how to remove it and allow our heart to be open to a clear connection with the Torah’s words. If we do not know the correct cause, we might busy ourselves in extensive work to remove some other cause, which is not presently impeding us. Then the real cause that keeps us from clinging to Torah will remain in place, and we will stay confused. Some of these causes are spiritual; others physical. Some stem from inadequate preparation of the holy; others from inadequate preparation of the this-worldly. Orot Hatorah 7:1 + 134 The Neglect of Torah The “neglect of Torah” is different for everyone, each on his level. Someone who can rise mentally to a great level but who is indolent or afraid and thus rejects his lofty state, allowing himself to remain low, is rejecting the Torah of God for which he is suited. In regard to this, the rabbis stated that “God overlooked idolatry, immorality and bloodshed, but not the rejection of the Torah.” Orot Hatorah 7:2 + 179 The Plain of Halachah and Aggadah When we begin to take steps upon the plain of halachah and aggadah, a multitude beyond number of unions and harmonies beyond number is drawn out. The universes of heaven and earth, humanity of the flesh and humanity of ideas, with all the wealth hidden in each of them, are then unified. They bring each other to the wished?for action that leads toward complete growth and perfection. This connection is nothing less than the revelation of the unity that had been hidden within them from the very beginning. Whoever has not tasted the flavor of halachah has not tasted the flavor of Torah. And whoever has not tasted the flavor of aggadah has not tasted the flavor of fear of sin. Torah and fear of sin must always accompany one another. The service of Torah learning must be methodically revealed, in an active form, upon this unifying basis—one whose results are very great. In truth, aggadah always contains a halachic essence. Similarly, halachah contains an inner agaddic content. In the main, the content of aggadah is found in the qualitative form of halachah. And the content of halachah is found in the quantitative form of aggadah. Even without any particular search or awareness, when we learn halachah, we are touched by its hidden content of aggadah; and, when we learn aggadah, we are touched by the pulse of halachah that is folded into the content of the aggadah. However, not everyone has a properly keen awareness of these two streams—each of which is constantly filled with the content of the other. An alienation between these worlds, which are in essence so joined and twinned together, leads to an unhealthy separation in the nature of deep study and its broadening. It constricts these two areas—halachic and the aggadic—to a narrow arena. We must clearly bring forth the meeting of these two forces in a rectified form, when each will make the other_s content exceedingly fragrant. Each will profoundly aid the other to bring forth its details and to shine a more brilliant light upon its own general appearance and upon the depth of its own internal logic and what that embraces. The scent of aggadah must make halachah fragrant, in a measure that is well?reasoned and fitting. And aggadah must be given its worth within a framework, with set laws and a clear, defined logic—like the form of a strengthened halachah. With this, the power and freshness of both will be multiplied. The need that brought the masters of pilpul in previous generations to at times attempt to integrate aggadah and halachah welled forth from this demand for a unification of these forces, which so much act in unison. We are already called upon to gather together talents and knowledge in order to clarify our learning and all the paths of our lives. In particular, the essence of halachic learning must be broad, composed of the various approaches of the early and later authorities who have grown to be so many over the generations—we very much need that depth and breadth. And we must approach with complete breadth the unity of the contents of halachah and aggadah—which includes the categories of logic and history, ethics and faith, feeling and civility. And resting upon all of them is a pure phenomenon, one soaked with the dew of the life of the totality of the light of Torah, ready to rest like a beautiful ornament upon all those who learn Torah for its own sake, giving them a special sensitivity and satisfaction of the heart?inspiring joy of Torah. Orot Hakodesh I, pp. 26?27 + 115 The Neglect of Torah On occasion, the times during which we neglect Torah act to illumine our eyes so that we may recognize the content of the holiness of the Torah and the depth of life that it pours forth upon those who learn it. Oros Hatorah 7:3 + 131 The Sweetness A diminution of the sweetness of the pleasantness of Torah results from something lacking in the Jewish nature of the soul. [The soul] must be rectified by means of self-growth directed toward this lack. And when our mind is engaged in rectifying this lack, immediately the supernal light of the holy nature of our soul again shines, and the sweetness of the Torah again begins to be revealed. Orot Hatorah 7:4 + 161 Enriching the Community of Israel One way of learning Torah for its own sake is [to do so in order] to enrich the Community of Israel with great spiritual powers. The more that the light of Torah increases, so that with one heart the people of Israel appreciate and respect it, the more that the fundamental power of our nation gains strength and firmness. And the individual soul of the person who brings about this universal blessing itself grows and gains glory, gains completion and beauty, with a multitude of fresh branches. And it sends forth a multitude of powerful roots, through which it takes root amidst the roots of the Tree of true life. To the degree of its purity and might, this soul recognizes and feels the depth of the pleasantness of the good taste of a fulfilled life. “Your palate is like good wine. It goes directly to my beloved. It causes the lips of the sleeping to murmur” (Shir Hashirim 7:10). Orot Hatorah 2:4 + 127 What we are considering really is not just a calculated risk in the military sense, but a comparative risk, which exists between surrender to terror and daring rescue stemming from independence. Shimon Peres, 1976 + 137 Peace is very much like love. It is a romantic process—you have to be living it, you have to invest in it, you have to trust it. As you cannot impose love, so you cannot impose peace. Shimon Peres, 1997 + 158 Israel must not only be an asset but a value. A moral, cultural and scientific call for the promotion of man, every man. It must be a good and warm home for Jews who are not Israelis, as well as for Israelis who are not Jews. And it must create equal opportunities for all, without discriminating between religion, nationality, community or sex... I have seen Israel in its most difficult hours and also in moments of achievement and spiritual uplifting. My years place me at an observation point from which can be viewed the scene of our reviving nation, spread out in all its glory... Permit me to remain an optimist. Permit me to be a dreamer of his people. If sometimes the atmosphere is autumnal, and also if today, the day seems suddenly grey, the president Israel has chosen will never tire of encouraging, awakening and reminding - because spring is waiting for us. The spring will definitely come. Shimon Peres, President's inaugural address, July 2007 + 142 A Jewish woman from Chelm went to the market one day to buy herring and a loaf of bread. "How much is it?" she asked the storekeeper. "14 cents," answered the storekeeper to the lady. "14! For what?" asked the Jewish lady. "I think it's 11." The storekeeper explained: The herring costs 7 cents, and the loaf of bread costs 7 cents also. So together it comes to 14 cents." "I know different. To the best of my recollection, 7 and 7 is 11." "What are your saying?" "As far as I know, 7 and 7 is 11...I had already had 4 children when my first husband died.
