Shem

+ 357 There are two levels in the study of Torah, Torah of the mind and Torah of the heart. The mind cogitates, comprehends and understands; the heart feels. I have come to reveal Torah as it extends to the heart as well. Baal Shem Tov


+ 361 In Hebrew, the word shmonah (eight) has the same exact letters as hashemen (the oil), and neshama (soul). The number eight is also associated with the revelation of Mashiach the Messiah. This is reflected in the Talmud which states, the harp of the era of Mashiach will be of eight strands.


+ 408 ZOHAR [To Deut. 6:4]: Hear O Israel: HaShem our G-d, HaShem is One. Why is there a need of mentioning the Name of G-d three times in this verse? The First HaShem is the Father above. The Second is the Stem of Jesse, the Messiah Who is to come from the family of Jesse through David. And the Third One is the Way which is below [meaning the Holy Spirit Who shows us the way] and These Three are One (Zohar quotes from Amsterdam Version).


+ 334 RASH MISHLE [10:21]: Rab Huna counted amongst the seven Names of Messiah also: haShem Zidkenu [Referring to Jer. 23:6].


+ 270 To say the Shema twice daily Deut. 6:7


+ 260 To rest on Shemini Atzeret Lev. 23:36


+ 239 Not to do prohibited labor on Shemini Atzeret Lev. 23:36


+ 327 Yeshuat Hashem kheref ayin. The salvation of God is like the blink of an eye. Pesikta Zutreta, Esther 4:17.


+ 408 Jerusalem was only destroyed because its inhabitants desecrated the Shabbat, they refrained from reciting the Morning and Evening Shema, the children in the Torah day schools wasted their learning time, because they were not shame faced (to sin), because they made the minors equal to the adults, because one did not rebuke another, because they embarrassed Torah Scholars. Talmud, Shabbat 119b


+ 362 We have peace with Israel. We're actually the last man standing. So there is going to be immense pressure and people asking, 'Why are we having this relationship when it's not benefiting anybody?' Obviously, my answer is you always benefit from peace. King Abdullah II. King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan


+ 236 Noah was 500 years old, and Noah fathered Shem, Ham, and Yefeth. Bereshit 5:32


+ 229 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Bereshit 6:10


+ 210 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


+ 346 And the sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and Ham he was the father of Canaan. Bereshit 9:18


+ 282 And Shem and Japheth took the garment, and they placed it on both of their shoulders, and they walked backwards, and they covered their father's nakedness, and their faces were turned backwards, so that they did not see their father's nakedness. Bereshit 9:23


+ 235 And he said, Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem, and may Canaan be a slave to them. Bereshit 9:26


+ 242 May God expand Japheth, and may He dwell in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be a slave to them. Bereshit 9:27


+ 254 And these are the generations of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and sons were born to them after the Flood. Bereshit 10:1


+ 250 And to Shem were also born children; he was the father of all the people of the other side of the river, the brother of Japheth the elder. Bereshit 10:21


+ 242 The sons of Shem were Elam and Asshur and Arpachshad and Lud and Aram. Bereshit 10:22


+ 218 These are the sons of Shem according to their families, according to their tongues, in their lands, according to their nations. Bereshit 10:31


+ 244 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was one hundred years old, and he begot Arpachshad, two years after the Flood. Bereshit 11:10


+ 247 And Shem lived after he had begotten Arpachshad five hundred years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:11


+ 233 That they waged war with Bera the king of Sodom and with Birsha the king of Gomorrah, Shineab the king of Admah, and Shemeber the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar. Bereshit 14:2


+ 280 And these are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt; with Jacob, each man and his household came: Shemot 1:1


+ 228 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah. Shemot 1:2


+ 232 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin. Shemot 1:3


+ 210 Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher. Shemot 1:4


+ 255 Now all those descended from Jacob were seventy souls, and Joseph, who was in Egypt. Shemot 1:5


+ 230 Now Joseph died, as well as all his brothers and all that generation. Shemot 1:6


+ 246 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


+ 232 A new king arose over Egypt, who did not know about Joseph. Shemot 1:8


+ 250 He said to his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more numerous and stronger than we are. Shemot 1:9


+ 254 Get ready, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they increase, and a war befall us, and they join our enemies and depart from the land. Shemot 1:10


+ 238 So they appointed over them tax collectors to afflict them with their burdens, and they built store cities for Pharaoh, namely Pithom and Raamses. Shemot 1:11


+ 271 But as much as they would afflict them, so did they multiply and so did they gain strength, and they were disgusted because of the children of Israel. Shemot 1:12


+ 213 So the Egyptians enslaved the children of Israel with back breaking labor. Shemot 1:13


+ 264 And they embittered their lives with hard labor, with clay and with bricks and with all kinds of labor in the fields, all their work that they worked with them with back breaking labor. Shemot 1:14


+ 210 Now the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, one who was named Shifrah, and the second, who was named Puah. Shemot 1:15


+ 233 And he said, When you deliver the Hebrew women, and you see on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall put him to death, but if it is a daughter, she may live. Shemot 1:16


+ 250 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


+ 227 So the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and said to them, Why have you done this thing, that you have enabled the boys to live? Shemot 1:18


+ 264 And the midwives said to Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women, for they are skilled as midwives; when the midwife has not yet come to them, they have already given birth. Shemot 1:19


+ 209 God benefited the midwives, and the people multiplied and became very strong. Shemot 1:20


+ 205 Now it took place when the midwives feared God, that He made houses for them. Shemot 1:21


+ 252 And Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, Every son who is born you shall cast into the Nile, and every daughter you shall allow to live. Shemot 1:22


+ 221 A man of the house of Levi went and married a daughter of Levi. Shemot 2:1


+ 200 The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw him that he was good, she hid him for three months. Shemot 2:2


+ 247 When she could no longer hide him, she took for him a reed basket, smeared it with clay and pitch, placed the child into it, and put it into the marsh at the Nile's edge. Shemot 2:3


+ 202 His sister stood from afar, to know what would be done to him. Shemot 2:4


+ 259 Pharaoh's daughter went down to bathe, to the Nile, and her maidens were walking along the Nile, and she saw the basket in the midst of the marsh, and she sent her maidservant, and she took it. Shemot 2:5


+ 260 She opened it, and she saw him the child, and behold, he was a weeping lad, and she had compassion on him, and she said, This is one of the children of the Hebrews. Shemot 2:6


+ 218 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


+ 223 Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go! So the girl went and called the child's mother. Shemot 2:8


+ 235 Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Take this child and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages. So the woman took the child and nursed him. Shemot 2:9


+ 224 The child grew up, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became like her son. She named him Moses, and she said, For I drew him from the water. Shemot 2:10


+ 290 Now it came to pass in those days that Moses grew up and went out to his brothers and looked at their burdens, and he saw an Egyptian man striking a Hebrew man of his brothers. Shemot 2:11


+ 215 He turned this way and that way, and he saw that there was no man; so he struck the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. Shemot 2:12


+ 222 He went out on the second day, and behold, two Hebrew men were quarreling, and he said to the wicked one, Why are you going to strike your friend? Shemot 2:13


+ 244 And he retorted, Who made you a man, a prince, and a judge over us? Do you plan to slay me as you have slain the Egyptian? Moses became frightened and said, Indeed, the matter has become known! Shemot 2:14


+ 242 Pharaoh heard of this incident, and he sought to slay Moses; so Moses fled from before Pharaoh. He stayed in the land of Midian, and he sat down by a well. Shemot 2:15


+ 192 Now the chief of Midian had seven daughters, and they came and drew water, and they filled the troughs to water their father's flocks. Shemot 2:16


+ 224 But the shepherds came and drove them away; so Moses arose and rescued them and watered their flocks. Shemot 2:17


+ 211 They came to their father Reuel, and he said, Why have you come so quickly today? Shemot 2:18


+ 219 They replied, An Egyptian man rescued us from the hands of the shepherds, and he also drew water for us and watered the flocks. Shemot 2:19


+ 223 He said to his daughters, So where is he? Why have you left the man? Invite him, and let him eat bread. Shemot 2:20


+ 213 Moses consented to stay with the man, and he gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses. Shemot 2:21


+ 267 She bore a son, and he named him Gershom, for he said, I was a stranger in a foreign land. Shemot 2:22


+ 255 Now it came to pass in those many days that the king of Egypt died, and the children of Israel sighed from the labor, and they cried out, and their cry ascended to God from the labor. Shemot 2:23


+ 237 God heard their cry, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. Shemot 2:24


+ 206 And God saw the children of Israel, and God knew. Shemot 2:25


+ 221 Moses was pasturing the flocks of Jethro, his father in law, the chief of Midian, and he led the flocks after the free pastureland, and he came to the mountain of God, to Horeb. Shemot 3:1


+ 204 An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from within the thorn bush, and behold, the thorn bush was burning with fire, but the thorn bush was not being consumed. Shemot 3:2


+ 203 So Moses said, Let me turn now and see this great spectacle why does the thorn bush not burn up? Shemot 3:3


+ 217 The Lord saw that he had turned to see, and God called to him from within the thorn bush, and He said, Moses, Moses! And he said, Here I am! Shemot 3:4


+ 202 And He said, Do not draw near here. Take your shoes off your feet, because the place upon which you stand is holy soil. Shemot 3:5


+ 236 And He said, I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face because he was afraid to look toward God. Shemot 3:6


+ 214 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


+ 237 I have descended to rescue them from the hands of the Egyptians and to bring them up from that land, to a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites. Shemot 3:8


+ 215 And now, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression that the Egyptians are oppressing them. Shemot 3:9


+ 201 So now come, and I will send you to Pharaoh, and take My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt. Shemot 3:10


+ 202 But Moses said to God, Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should take the children of Israel out of Egypt? Shemot 3:11


+ 211 And He said, For I will be with you, and this is the sign for you that it was I Who sent you. When you take the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain. Shemot 3:12


+ 221 And Moses said to God, Behold I come to the children of Israel, and I say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? what shall I say to them? Shemot 3:13


+ 231 God said to Moses, Ehyeh asher ehyeh I will be what I will be, and He said, So shall you say to the children of Israel, Ehyeh has sent me to you. Shemot 3:14


+ 245 And God said further to Moses, So shall you say to the children of Israel, The Lord God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is how I should be mentioned in every generation. Shemot 3:15


+ 244 Go and assemble the elders of Israel, and say to them, The Lord God of your forefathers has appeared to me, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, I have surely remembered you and what is being done to you in Egypt. Shemot 3:16


+ 227 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


+ 218 And they will hearken to your voice, and you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt, and you shall say to him, The Lord God of the Hebrews has happened upon us, and now, let us go for a three days journey in the desert and offer up sacrifices to the Lord, our God. Shemot 3:18


+ 173 However, I know that the king of Egypt will not permit you to go, except through a mighty hand. Shemot 3:19


+ 222 And I will stretch forth My hand and smite the Egyptians with all My miracles that I will wreak in their midst, and afterwards he will send you out. Shemot 3:20


+ 187 And I will put this people's favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and it will come to pass that when you go, you will not go empty handed. Shemot 3:21


+ 243 Each woman shall borrow from her neighbor and from the dweller in her house silver and gold objects and garments, and you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters, and you shall empty out Egypt. Shemot 3:22


+ 235 Moses answered and said, Behold they will not believe me, and they will not heed my voice, but they will say, The Lord has not appeared to you. Shemot 4:1


+ 179 And the Lord said to him, What is this in your hand? And he said, A staff. Shemot 4:2


+ 172 And He said, Cast it to the ground, and he cast it to the ground, and it became a serpent, and Moses fled from before it. Shemot 4:3


+ 204 And the Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand and take hold of its tail. So Moses stretched forth his hand and grasped it, and it became a staff in his hand. Shemot 4:4


+ 271 In order that they believe that the Lord, the God of their forefathers, has appeared to you, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Shemot 4:5


+ 205 And the Lord said further to him, Now put your hand into your bosom, and he put his hand into his bosom, and he took it out, and behold, his hand was leprous like snow. Shemot 4:6


+ 219 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


+ 180 And it will come to pass, that if they do not believe you, and they do not heed the voice of the first sign, they will believe the voice of the last sign. Shemot 4:8


+ 202 And it will come to pass, if they do not believe either of these two signs, and they do not heed your voice, you shall take of the water of the Nile and spill it upon the dry land, and the water that you take from the Nile will become blood on the dry land." Shemot 4:9


+ 210 Moses said to the Lord, I beseech You, O Lord. I am not a man of words, neither from yesterday nor from the day before yesterday, nor from the time You have spoken to Your servant, for I am heavy of mouth and heavy of tongue. Shemot 4:10


+ 213 But the Lord said to him, Who gave man a mouth, or who makes one dumb or deaf or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Shemot 4:11


+ 198 So now, go! I will be with your mouth, and I will instruct you what you shall speak. Shemot 4:12


+ 203 But he said, I beseech You, O Lord, send now Your message with whom You would send. Shemot 4:13


+ 253 And the Lord's wrath was kindled against Moses, and He said, Is there not Aaron your brother, the Levite? I know that he will surely speak, and behold, he is coming forth toward you, and when he sees you, he will rejoice in his heart. Shemot 4:14


+ 220 You shall speak to him, and you shall put the words into his mouth, and I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will instruct you both what you shall do. Shemot 4:15


+ 202 And he will speak for you to the people, and it will be that he will be your speaker, and you will be his leader. Shemot 4:16


+ 209 And you shall take this staff in your hand, with which you shall perform the signs. Shemot 4:17


+ 269 Moses went and returned to Jether, his father in law, and he said to him, Let me go now and return to my brothers who are in Egypt, and let me see whether they are still alive. So Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace. Shemot 4:18


+ 218 The Lord said to Moses in Midian, Go, return to Egypt, for all the people who sought your life have died. Shemot 4:19


+ 200 So Moses took his wife and his sons, mounted them upon the donkey, and he returned to the land of Egypt, and Moses took the staff of God in his hand. Shemot 4:20


+ 246 The Lord said to Moses, When you go to return to Egypt, see all the signs that I have placed in your hand and perform them before Pharaoh, but I will strengthen his heart, and he will not send out the people. Shemot 4:21


+ 190 And you shall say to Pharaoh, So said the Lord, My firstborn son is Israel. Shemot 4:22


+ 216 So I say to you, Send out My son so that he will worship Me, but if you refuse to send him out, behold, I am going to slay your firstborn son. Shemot 4:23


+ 191 Now he was on the way, in an inn, that the Lord met him and sought to put him to death. Shemot 4:24


+ 201 So Zipporah took a sharp stone and severed her son's foreskin and cast it to his feet, and she said, For you are a bridegroom of blood to me. Shemot 4:25


+ 199 So He released him. Then she said, A bridegroom of blood concerning the circumcision. Shemot 4:26


+ 191 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


+ 204 And Moses told Aaron all the words of the Lord with which he had sent him and all the signs that He had commanded him. Shemot 4:28


+ 200 So Moses and Aaron went, and they assembled all the elders of the children of Israel. Shemot 4:29


+ 204 And Aaron spoke all the words that the Lord had spoken to Moses, and he performed the signs before the eyes of the people. Shemot 4:30


+ 227 And the people believed, and they heard that the Lord had remembered the children of Israel, and they kneeled and prostrated themselves. Shemot 4:31


+ 228 And afterwards, Moses and Aaron came and said to Pharaoh, So said the Lord God of Israel, 'Send out My people, and let them sacrifice to Me in the desert. Shemot 5:1


+ 184 And Pharaoh said, Who is the Lord that I should heed His voice to let Israel out? I do not know the Lord, neither will I let Israel out. Shemot 5:2


+ 228 And they said, The God of the Hebrews has happened upon us. Now let us go on a three day journey in the desert and sacrifice to the Lord our God, lest He strike us with a plague or with the sword. Shemot 5:3


+ 223 But the king of Egypt said to them, Why, Moses and Aaron, do you disturb the people from their work? Go to your own labors. Shemot 5:4


+ 217 And Pharaoh said, Behold, now the people of the land are many, and you are stopping them from their labors. Shemot 5:5


+ 204 So, on that day, Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people and their officers, saying, Shemot 5:6


+ 190 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


+ 259 But the number of bricks they have been making yesterday and the day before yesterday you shall impose upon them; you shall not reduce it, for they are lax. Therefore they cry out, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God. Shemot 5:8


+ 188 Let the labor fall heavy upon the men and let them work at it, and let them not talk about false matters. Shemot 5:9


+ 194 So the taskmasters of the people and their officers came out and spoke to the people, saying, So said Pharaoh, I am not giving you stubble. Shemot 5:10


+ 245 You go take for yourselves stubble from wherever you find it, because nothing will be reduced from your work. Shemot 5:11


+ 174 So the people scattered throughout the entire land of Egypt, to gather a gleaning for stubble. Shemot 5:12


+ 229 And the taskmasters were pressing them, saying, Finish your work, the requirement of each day in its day, just as when there was stubble. Shemot 5:13


+ 234 And the officers of the children of Israel whom Pharaoh's taskmasters had appointed over them were beaten, saying, Why have you not completed your quota to make bricks like the day before yesterday, neither yesterday nor today? Shemot 5:14


+ 202 So the officers of the children of Israel came and cried out to Pharaoh, saying, Why do you do this to your servants? Shemot 5:15


+ 238 Stubble is not given to your servants, but they tell us, Make bricks, and behold, your servants are beaten, and your people are sinning. Shemot 5:16


+ 182 But he said, You are lax, just lax. Therefore, you say, Let us go, let us sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 5:17


+ 208 And now, go and work, but you will not be given stubble. Nevertheless, the same number of bricks you must give. Shemot 5:18


+ 229 The officers of the children of Israel saw them in distress, saying, Do not reduce the number of your bricks, the requirement of each day in its day. Shemot 5:19


+ 193 They met Moses and Aaron standing before them when they came out from Pharaoh's presence. Shemot 5:20


+ 226 And they said to them, May the Lord look upon you and judge, for you have brought us into foul odor in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his servants, to place a sword into their hands to kill us. Shemot 5:21


+ 219 So Moses returned to the Lord and said, O Lord! Why have You harmed this people? Why have You sent me? Shemot 5:22


+ 221 Since I have come to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has harmed this people, and You have not saved Your people. Shemot 5:23


+ 214 And the Lord said to Moses, Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh, for with a mighty hand he will send them out, and with a mighty hand he will drive them out of his land. Shemot 6:1


+ 170 God spoke to Moses, and He said to him, I am the Lord. Shemot 6:2


+ 271 I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob with the name Almighty God, but with My name YHWH, I did not become known to them. Shemot 6:3


+ 200 And also, I established My covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their sojournings in which they sojourned. Shemot 6:4


+ 244 And also, I heard the moans of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians are holding in bondage, and I remembered My covenant. Shemot 6:5


+ 238 Therefore, say to the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will take you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will save you from their labor, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. Shemot 6:6


+ 195 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


+ 242 I will bring you to the land, concerning which I raised My hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, and I will give it to you as a heritage; I am the Lord. Shemot 6:8


+ 196 Moses spoke thus to the children of Israel, but they did not hearken to Moses because of their shortness of breath and because of their hard labor. Shemot 6:9


+ 213 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 6:10


+ 187 Come, speak to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and he will let the children of Israel out of his land. Shemot 6:11


+ 219 But Moses spoke before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of Israel did not hearken to me. How then will Pharaoh hearken to me, seeing that I am of closed lips? Shemot 6:12


+ 214 So the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, and He commanded them concerning the children of Israel and concerning Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to let the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 6:13


+ 217 These following are the heads of the fathers' houses: The sons of Reuben, Israel's firstborn: Enoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Karmi, these are the families of Reuben. Shemot 6:14


+ 222 And the sons of Simeon: Jemuel and Jamin and Ohad and Jachin and Zohar and Saul, the son of the Canaanitess, these are the families of Simeon. Shemot 6:15


+ 235 And these are the names of Levi's sons after their generations: Gershon, Kehath, and Merari, and the years of Levi's life were one hundred thirty seven years. Shemot 6:16


+ 222 The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei to their families. Shemot 6:17


+ 217 And the sons of Kehath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel, and the years of Kehath's life were one hundred thirty three years. Shemot 6:18


+ 194 And the sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi; these are the families of the Levites according to their generations. Shemot 6:19


+ 208 Amram took Jochebed, his aunt, as his wife, and she bore him Aaron and Moses, and the years of Amram's life were one hundred thirty seven years. Shemot 6:20


+ 180 And the sons of Izhar were Korah and Nepheg and Zichri. Shemot 6:21


+ 231 And the sons of Uzziel were Mishael, Elzaphan, and Sithri. Shemot 6:22


+ 215 Aaron took to himself for a wife, Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, and she bore him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. Shemot 6:23


+ 184 And the sons of Korah were Assir, Elkanah and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korahites. Shemot 6:24


+ 248 Eleazar, the son of Aaron, took himself one of the daughters of Putiel to himself as a wife, and she bore him Phinehas; these are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites according to their families. Shemot 6:25


+ 209 That is Aaron and Moses, to whom the Lord said, Take the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt with their legions. Shemot 6:26


+ 213 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


+ 166 Now it came to pass on the day that the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, Shemot 6:28


+ 167 That the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, I am the Lord. Speak to Pharaoh everything that I speak to you. Shemot 6:29


+ 180 But Moses said before the Lord, Behold, I am of closed lips; so how will Pharaoh hearken to me? Shemot 6:30


+ 200 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


+ 200 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


+ 196 But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and I will increase My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt. Shemot 7:3


+ 226 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


+ 216 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


+ 201 Moses and Aaron did; as the Lord commanded them, so they did. Shemot 7:6


+ 183 And Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron was eighty three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh. Shemot 7:7


+ 208 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, Shemot 7:8


+ 237 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


+ 201 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


+ 208 Then, Pharaoh too summoned the wise men and the magicians, and the necromancers of Egypt also did likewise with their magic. Shemot 7:11


+ 190 Each one of them cast down his staff, and they became serpents; but Aaron's staff swallowed their staffs. Shemot 7:12


+ 221 But Pharaoh's heart remained steadfast, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 7:13


+ 210 The Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh's heart is heavy; he has refused to let the people out. Shemot 7:14


+ 222 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


+ 249 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


+ 219 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


+ 208 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


+ 225 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


+ 212 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


+ 202 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


+ 215 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


+ 195 Pharaoh turned and went home, and he paid no heed even to this. Shemot 7:23


+ 204 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


+ 196 Seven full days passed after the Lord had smitten the Nile. Shemot 7:25


+ 217 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


+ 177 But if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all your borders with frogs. Shemot 7:27


+ 228 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


+ 214 And into you and into your people and into all your servants, the frogs will ascend. Shemot 7:29


+ 239 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, stretch forth your hand with your staff over the rivers, over the canals, and over the ponds, and bring up the frogs on the land of Egypt. Shemot 8:1


+ 185 And Aaron stretched forth his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt. Shemot 8:2


+ 194 And the necromancers did likewise with their secret rites, and they brought up the frogs on the land of Egypt. Shemot 8:3


+ 261 Thereupon, Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron, and said, Entreat the Lord that He remove the frogs from me and from my people, and I will let out the people of Israel so that they may sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 8:4


+ 275 And Moses said to Pharaoh, Boast of your superiority over me. For when shall I entreat for you, for your servants, and for your people, to destroy the frogs from you and from your houses, that they should remain only in the Nile? Shemot 8:5


+ 239 And Pharaoh said, For tomorrow. And Moses said, As you say, in order that you should know that there is none like the Lord, our God. Shemot 8:6


+ 246 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


+ 214 And Moses and Aaron went away from Pharaoh, and Moses cried out to the Lord concerning the frogs that He had brought upon Pharaoh. Shemot 8:8


+ 189 And the Lord did according to Moses' word, and the frogs died from the houses, from the courtyards, and from the fields. Shemot 8:9


+ 178 They gathered them into many heaps, and the land stank. Shemot 8:10


+ 195 When Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 8:11


+ 215 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch forth your staff and strike the dust of the earth, and it shall become lice throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 8:12


+ 198 They did so, and Aaron stretched forth his hand with his staff and struck the dust of the earth, and the lice were upon man and beast; all the dust of the earth became lice throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 8:13


+ 201 And the necromancers did likewise with their secret rites to bring out the lice, but they could not, and the lice were upon man and beast. Shemot 8:14


+ 243 So the necromancers said to Pharaoh, It is the finger of God, but Pharaoh's heart remained steadfast, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 8:15


+ 212 And the Lord said to Moses, Arise early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh, behold, he is going out to the water, and you shall say to him, So said the Lord, Let My people go out and serve Me. Shemot 8:16


+ 226 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


+ 252 And I will separate on that day the land of Goshen, upon which My people stand, that there will be no mixture of noxious creatures there, in order that you know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth. Shemot 8:18


+ 197 And I will make a redemption between My people and your people; this sign will come about tomorrow." ' " Shemot 8:19


+ 208 The Lord did so, and a heavy mixture of noxious creatures came to Pharaoh's house and his servants' house, and throughout the entire land of Egypt, the land was destroyed because of the mixture of noxious creatures. Shemot 8:20


+ 227 Thereupon, Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron, and he said, "Go, sacrifice to your God in the land." Shemot 8:21


+ 219 But Moses said, It is improper to do that, for we will sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to God our Lord. Will we sacrifice the deity of the Egyptians before their eyes, and they will not stone us? Shemot 8:22


+ 211 Let us go for a three day journey in the desert and sacrifice to the Lord, our God, as He will say to us." Shemot 8:23


+ 229 Pharaoh said, I will let you go out, and you will sacrifice to the Lord, your God, in the desert, but do not go far away; entreat Him on my behalf. Shemot 8:24


+ 256 Moses said, Behold, I am going away from you, and I will entreat the Lord, and the mixture of noxious creatures will depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people tomorrow. Only let Pharaoh not tease anymore, by not letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 8:25


+ 219 So Moses went away from Pharaoh and entreated the Lord. Shemot 8:26


+ 235 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


+ 205 But Pharaoh hardened his heart this time also, and he did not let the people go. Shemot 8:28


+ 221 The Lord said to Moses, Come to Pharaoh and speak to him, 'So said the Lord, God of the Hebrews, Let My people go, that they may serve Me. Shemot 9:1


+ 212 For if you refuse to let them go, and you still hold on to them, Shemot 9:2


+ 221 Behold, the hand of the Lord will be upon your livestock that is in the field, upon the horses, upon the donkeys, upon the camels, upon the cattle, and upon the sheep, a very severe pestilence. Shemot 9:3


+ 205 And the Lord will make a separation between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt, and nothing of the children of Israel will die. Shemot 9:4


+ 176 The Lord set an appointed time, saying, "Tomorrow, God will do this thing in the land." Shemot 9:5


+ 190 God did this thing on the morrow, and all the livestock of the Egyptians died, but of the livestock of the children of Israel not one died. Shemot 9:6


+ 203 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


+ 214 The Lord said to Moses and to Aaron, "Take yourselves handfuls of furnace soot, and Moses shall cast it heavenward before Pharaoh's eyes. Shemot 9:8


+ 175 And it will become dust upon the entire land of Egypt, and it will become boils, breaking out into blisters upon man and upon beast throughout the entire land of Egypt." Shemot 9:9


+ 202 So they took furnace soot, and they stood before Pharaoh, and Moses cast it heavenward, and it became boils breaking out into blisters upon man and upon beast. Shemot 9:10


+ 185 And the necromancers could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were upon the necromancers and upon all Egypt. Shemot 9:11


+ 195 But the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord spoke to Moses. Shemot 9:12


+ 212 The Lord said to Moses, Rise early in the morning and stand erect before Pharaoh, and say to him, So said the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, Let My people go so that they may worship Me. Shemot 9:13


+ 240 Because this time, I am sending all My plagues into your heart and into your servants and into your people, in order that you know that there is none like Me in the entire earth. Shemot 9:14


+ 226 For if now I had stretched forth My hand, and I had smitten you and your people with pestilence, you would have been annihilated from the earth. Shemot 9:15


+ 214 But, for this reason I have allowed you to stand, in order to show you My strength and in order to declare My name all over the earth. Shemot 9:16


+ 211 If you still tread upon My people, not letting them out, Shemot 9:17


+ 217 Behold, I am going to rain down at this time tomorrow a very heavy hail, the likes of which has never been in Egypt from the day of its being founded until now. Shemot 9:18


+ 261 And now, send, gather in your livestock and all that you have in the field, any man or beast that is found in the field and not brought into the house the hail shall fall on them, and they will die. Shemot 9:19


+ 215 He who feared the word of the Lord of Pharaoh's servants drove his servants and his livestock into the houses. Shemot 9:20


+ 187 But he who did not pay attention to the word of the Lord left his servants and his livestock in the field. Shemot 9:21


+ 248 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand heavenward, and hail will be upon the entire land of Egypt, upon man and upon beast and upon all the vegetation of the field in the land of Egypt. Shemot 9:22


+ 203 So Moses stretched forth his staff heavenward, and the Lord gave forth thunder and hail, and fire came down to the earth, and the Lord rained down hail upon the land of Egypt. Shemot 9:23


+ 210 And there was hail, and fire flaming within the hail, very heavy, the likes of which had never been throughout the entire land of Egypt since it had become a nation. Shemot 9:24


+ 186 The hail struck throughout the entire land of Egypt, all that was in the field, both man and beast, and the hail struck all the vegetation of the field, and it broke all the trees of the field. Shemot 9:25


+ 200 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail. Shemot 9:26


+ 238 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


+ 176 Entreat the Lord, and let it be enough of God's thunder and hail, and I will let you go, and you shall not continue to stand. Shemot 9:28


+ 219 And Moses said to him, When I leave the city, I will spread my hands to the Lord. The thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, in order that you know that the land is the Lord's. Shemot 9:29


+ 200 But you and your servants I know that you still do not fear the Lord God, Shemot 9:30


+ 187 Though the flax and the barley have been broken, for the barley is in the ear, and the flax is in the stalk. Shemot 9:31


+ 193 The wheat and the spelt, however, have not been broken because they ripen late. Shemot 9:32


+ 219 Moses went away from Pharaoh, out of the city, and he spread out his hands to the Lord, and the thunder and the hail ceased, and rain did not come down to earth. Shemot 9:33


+ 190 And Pharaoh saw that the rain, the hail, and the thunder had ceased; so he continued to sin, and he strengthened his heart, he and his servants. Shemot 9:34


+ 231 And Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he did not let the children of Israel go out, as the Lord had spoken through the hand of Moses. Shemot 9:35


+ 238 The Lord said to Moses: Come to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants, in order that I may place these signs of Mine in his midst, Shemot 10:1


+ 206 And in order that you tell into the ears of your son and your son's son how I made a mockery of the Egyptians, and that you tell of My signs that I placed in them, and you will know that I am the Lord. Shemot 10:2


+ 208 So Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh and said to him, So said the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, How long will you refuse to humble yourself before Me? Let My people go, and they will worship Me. Shemot 10:3


+ 187 For if you refuse to let them go, behold, tomorrow I am going to bring locusts into your borders. Shemot 10:4


+ 244 And they will obscure the view of the earth, and no one will be able to see the earth, and they will eat the surviving remnant, which remains for you from the hail, and they will eat all your trees that grow out of the field. Shemot 10:5


+ 232 And your houses and the houses of all your servants and the houses of all the Egyptians will be filled, which your fathers and your fathers fathers did not see since the day they were on the earth until this day. Therewith, he turned and left Pharaoh. Shemot 10:6


+ 223 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


+ 217 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh, and he said to them, Go, worship the Lord your God. Who and who are going? Shemot 10:8


+ 227 Moses said, With our youth and with our elders we will go, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our cattle we will go, for it is a festival of the Lord to us. Shemot 10:9


+ 201 So he said to them, So may the Lord be with you, just as I will let you and your young children out. See that evil is before your faces. Shemot 10:10


+ 191 Not so; let the men go now and worship the Lord, for that is what you request. And he chased them out from before Pharaoh. Shemot 10:11


+ 217 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, and they will ascend over the land of Egypt, and they will eat all the vegetation of the earth, all that the hail has left over. Shemot 10:12


+ 228 So Moses stretched forth his staff over the land of Egypt, and the Lord led an east wind in the land all that day and all the night. By the time it was morning, the east wind had borne the locusts. Shemot 10:13


+ 232 The locusts ascended over the entire land of Egypt, and they alighted within all the borders of Egypt, very severe; before them, there was never such a locust plague, and after it, there will never be one like it. Shemot 10:14


+ 269 They obscured the view of all the earth, and the earth became darkened, and they ate all the vegetation of the earth and all the fruits of the trees, which the hail had left over, and no greenery was left in the trees or in the vegetation of the fields throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 10:15


+ 229 Pharaoh hastened to summon Moses and Aaron, and he said, I have sinned against the Lord your God and against you. Shemot 10:16


+ 202 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


+ 180 So he left Pharaoh and entreated the Lord, Shemot 10:18


+ 219 And the Lord reversed a very strong west wind, and it picked up the locusts and thrust them into the Red Sea. Not one locust remained within all the borders of Egypt. Shemot 10:19


+ 185 But the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go out. Shemot 10:20


+ 201 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand toward the heavens, and there will be darkness over the land of Egypt, and the darkness will become darker. Shemot 10:21


+ 206 So Moses stretched forth his hand toward the heavens, and there was thick darkness over the entire land of Egypt for three days. Shemot 10:22


+ 208 They did not see each other, and no one rose from his place for three days, but for all the children of Israel there was light in their dwellings. Shemot 10:23


+ 228 Pharaoh summoned Moses and said, Go! Worship the Lord, but your flocks and your cattle shall be left. Your young children may also go with you. Shemot 10:24


+ 234 But Moses said, You too shall give sacrifices and burnt offerings into our hands, and we will make them for the Lord our God. Shemot 10:25


+ 220 And also our cattle will go with us; not a single hoof will remain, for we will take from it to worship the Lord our God, and we do not know how much we will worship the Lord until we arrive there. Shemot 10:26


+ 195 The Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he was unwilling to let them out. Shemot 10:27


+ 198 Pharaoh said to him, Go away from me! Beware! You shall no longer see my face, for on the day that you see my face, you shall die! Shemot 10:28


+ 212 Thereupon, Moses said, You have spoken correctly; I shall no longer see your face. Shemot 10:29


+ 235 The Lord said to Moses, I will bring one more plague upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go from here. When he lets you out, he will completely drive you out of here. Shemot 11:1


+ 184 Please, speak into the ears of the people, and let them borrow, each man from his friend and each woman from her friend, silver vessels and golden vessels. Shemot 11:2


+ 205 So the Lord gave the people favor in the Egyptians' eyes; also the man Moses was highly esteemed in the land of Egypt in the eyes of Pharaoh's servants and in the eyes of the people. Shemot 11:3


+ 190 Moses said, So said the Lord, At the dividing point of the night, I will go out into the midst of Egypt, Shemot 11:4


+ 195 And every firstborn in the land of Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the firstborn of the slave woman who is behind the millstones, and every firstborn animal. Shemot 11:5


+ 206 And there will be a great cry throughout the entire land of Egypt, such as there never has been and such as there shall never be again. Shemot 11:6


+ 195 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


+ 218 And all these servants of yours will come down to me and prostrate themselves to me, saying, Go out, you and all the people who are at your feet, and afterwards I will go out. Then he exited from Pharaoh with burning anger. Shemot 11:8


+ 208 The Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh will not heed you, in order to increase My miracles in the land of Egypt. Shemot 11:9


+ 202 Moses and Aaron had performed all these miracles before Pharaoh, but the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel out of his land. Shemot 11:10


+ 163 The Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, Shemot 12:1


+ 169 This month shall be to you the head of the months; to you it shall be the first of the months of the year. Shemot 12:2


+ 226 Speak to the entire community of Israel, saying, On the tenth of this month, let each one take a lamb for each parental home, a lamb for each household. Shemot 12:3


+ 200 But if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his neighbor who is nearest to his house shall take one according to the number of people, each one according to one's ability to eat, shall you be counted for the lamb. Shemot 12:4


+ 193 You shall have a perfect male lamb in its first year; you may take it either from the sheep or from the goats. Shemot 12:5


+ 233 And you shall keep it for inspection until the fourteenth day of this month, and the entire congregation of the community of Israel shall slaughter it in the afternoon. Shemot 12:6


+ 200 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


+ 202 And on this night, they shall eat the flesh, roasted over the fire, and unleavened cakes; with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Shemot 12:8


+ 208 You shall not eat it rare or boiled in water, except roasted over the fire its head with its legs and with its innards. Shemot 12:9


+ 184 And you shall not leave over any of it until morning, and whatever is left over of it until morning, you shall burn in fire. Shemot 12:10


+ 202 And this is how you shall eat it: your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste it is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 12:11


+ 211 I will pass through the land of Egypt on this night, and I will smite every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast, and upon all the gods of Egypt will I wreak judgments I, the Lord. Shemot 12:12


+ 196 And the blood will be for you for a sign upon the houses where you will be, and I will see the blood and skip over you, and there will be no plague to destroy you when I smite the people of the land of Egypt. Shemot 12:13


+ 185 And this day shall be for you as a memorial, and you shall celebrate it as a festival for the Lord; throughout your generations, you shall celebrate it as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:14


+ 232 For seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes, but on the preceding day you shall clear away all leaven from your houses, for whoever eats leaven from the first day until the seventh day that soul shall be cut off from Israel. Shemot 12:15


+ 199 And on the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation; no work may be performed on them, but what is eaten by any soul that alone may be performed for you. Shemot 12:16


+ 202 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


+ 201 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, you shall eat unleavened cakes, until the twenty first day of the month in the evening. Shemot 12:18


+ 234 For seven days, leavening shall not be found in your houses, for whoever eats leavening that soul shall be cut off from the community of Israel, both among the strangers and the native born of the land. Shemot 12:19


+ 198 You shall not eat any leavening; throughout all your dwellings you shall eat unleavened cakes." Shemot 12:20


+ 219 Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, Draw forth or buy for yourselves sheep for your families and slaughter the Passover sacrifice. Shemot 12:21


+ 201 And you shall take a bunch of hyssop and immerse it in the blood that is in the basin, and you shall extend to the lintel and to the two doorposts the blood that is in the basin, and you shall not go out, any man from the entrance of his house until morning. Shemot 12:22


+ 232 The Lord will pass to smite the Egyptians, and He will see the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, and the Lord will pass over the entrance, and He will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses to smite you. Shemot 12:23


+ 192 And you shall keep this matter as a statute for you and for your children forever. Shemot 12:24


+ 183 And it shall come to pass when you enter the land that the Lord will give you, as He spoke, that you shall observe this service. Shemot 12:25


+ 194 And it will come to pass if your children say to you, What is this service to you? Shemot 12:26


+ 233 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


+ 181 So the children of Israel went and did; as the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. Shemot 12:28


+ 206 It came to pass at midnight, and the Lord smote every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who is in the dungeon, and every firstborn animal. Shemot 12:29


+ 209 And Pharaoh arose at night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was a great outcry in Egypt, for there was no house in which no one was dead. Shemot 12:30


+ 233 So he called for Moses and Aaron at night, and he said, Get up and get out from among my people, both you, as well as the children of Israel, and go, worship the Lord as you have spoken. Shemot 12:31


+ 180 Take also your flocks and also your cattle, as you have spoken, and go, but you shall also bless me. Shemot 12:32


+ 241 So the Egyptians took hold of the people to hasten to send them out of the land, for they said, "We are all dead." Shemot 12:33


+ 213 The people picked up their dough when it was not yet leavened, their leftovers bound in their garments on their shoulders. Shemot 12:34


+ 242 And the children of Israel did according to Moses' order, and they borrowed from the Egyptians silver objects, golden objects, and garments. Shemot 12:35


+ 178 The Lord gave the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and they lent them, and they emptied out Egypt. Shemot 12:36


+ 229 The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot, the men, besides the young children. Shemot 12:37


+ 215 And also, a great mixed multitude went up with them, and flocks and cattle, very much livestock. Shemot 12:38


+ 198 They baked the dough that they had taken out of Egypt as unleavened cakes, for it had not leavened, for they were driven out of Egypt, and they could not tarry, and also, they had not made provisions for themselves. Shemot 12:39


+ 198 And the habitation of the children of Israel, that they dwelled in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. Shemot 12:40


+ 176 It came to pass at the end of four hundred and thirty years, and it came to pass in that very day, that all the legions of the Lord went out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 12:41


+ 176 It is a night of anticipation for the Lord, to take them out of the land of Egypt; this night is the Lord's, guarding all the children of Israel throughout their generations. Shemot 12:42


+ 216 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, This is the statute of the Passover sacrifice: No estranged one may partake of it. Shemot 12:43


+ 202 And every man's slave, purchased for his money you shall circumcise him; then he will be permitted to partake of it. Shemot 12:44


+ 197 A sojourner or a hired hand may not partake of it. Shemot 12:45


+ 200 It must be eaten in one house; you shall not take any of the meat out of the house to the outside, neither shall you break any of its bones. Shemot 12:46


+ 181 The entire community of Israel shall make it. Shemot 12:47


+ 253 And should a proselyte reside with you, he shall make a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. All his males shall be circumcised, and then he may approach to make it, and he will be like the native of the land, but no uncircumcised male may partake of it. Shemot 12:48


+ 181 There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who resides in your midst." Shemot 12:49


+ 211 All the children of Israel did; as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. Shemot 12:50


+ 170 It came to pass on that very day, that the Lord took the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt with their legions. Shemot 12:51


+ 169 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 13:1


+ 196 Sanctify to Me every firstborn, every one that opens the womb among the children of Israel among man and among animals; it is Mine. Shemot 13:2


+ 237 Moses said to the people, Remember this day, when you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, for with a mighty hand, the Lord took you out of here, and therefore no leaven shall be eaten. Shemot 13:3


+ 198 Today you are going out, in the month of spring. Shemot 13:4


+ 247 And it will come to pass that the Lord will bring you into the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, which He swore to your forefathers to give you a land flowing with milk and honey and you shall perform this service in this month. Shemot 13:5


+ 194 For seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes, and on the seventh day, there is a festival for the Lord. Shemot 13:6


+ 221 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


+ 190 And you shall tell your son on that day, saying, Because of this, the Lord did this for me when I went out of Egypt. Shemot 13:8


+ 198 And it shall be to you as a sign upon your hand and as a remembrance between your eyes, in order that the law of the Lord shall be in your mouth, for with a mighty hand the Lord took you out of Egypt. Shemot 13:9


+ 197 And you shall keep this statute at its appointed time, from year to year. Shemot 13:10


+ 177 And it will come to pass when the Lord will bring you into the land of the Canaanites, as He swore to you and to your forefathers, and He has given it to you, Shemot 13:11


+ 221 That you shall give over to the Lord whatever opens the womb, and every miscarriage that opens the womb of an animal which will be yours, the males belong to the Lord. Shemot 13:12


+ 192 And every firstborn donkey you shall redeem with a lamb, and if you do not redeem it, you shall decapitate it, and every firstborn of man among your sons, you shall redeem. Shemot 13:13


+ 194 And it will come to pass if your son asks you in the future, saying, What is this? you shall say to him, With a mighty hand did the Lord take us out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Shemot 13:14


+ 273 And it came to pass when Pharaoh was too stubborn to let us out, the Lord slew every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man and the firstborn of beast. Therefore, I slaughter for a sacrifice all males that open the womb, and every firstborn of my sons I will redeem. Shemot 13:15


+ 178 And it shall be for a sign upon your hand and for ornaments between your eyes, for with a mighty hand did the Lord take us out of Egypt. Shemot 13:16


+ 217 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


+ 214 So God led the people around by way of the desert to the Red Sea, and the children of Israel were armed when they went up out of Egypt. Shemot 13:18


+ 248 Moses took Joseph's bones with him, for he had adjured the sons of Israel, saying, God will surely remember you, and you shall bring up my bones from here with you. Shemot 13:19


+ 177 They traveled from Succoth, and they encamped in Etham, at the edge of the desert. Shemot 13:20


+ 164 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to cause it to lead them on the way and at night in a pillar of fire to give them light, they thus could travel day and night. Shemot 13:21


+ 182 He did not move away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire at night from before the people. Shemot 13:22


+ 178 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 14:1


+ 198 Speak to the children of Israel, and let them turn back and encamp in front of Pi hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea; in front of Baal Zephon, you shall encamp opposite it, by the sea. Shemot 14:2


+ 213 And Pharaoh will say about the children of Israel, They are trapped in the land. The desert has closed in upon them. Shemot 14:3


+ 191 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will pursue them, and I will be glorified through Pharaoh and through his entire force, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord And they did so. Shemot 14:4


+ 253 It was reported to Pharaoh that the people had fled; and Pharaoh and his servants had a change of heart toward the people, and they said, What is this that we have done, that we have released Israel from serving us? Shemot 14:5


+ 179 So he harnessed his chariot, and took his people with him. Shemot 14:6


+ 187 He took six hundred select chariots and all the chariots of Egypt, with officers over them all. Shemot 14:7


+ 216 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and he chased after the children of Israel, and the children of Israel were marching out triumphantly. Shemot 14:8


+ 216 The Egyptians chased after them and overtook them encamped by the sea every horse of Pharaoh's chariots, his horsemen, and his force beside Pi hahiroth, in front of Ba'al Zephon. Shemot 14:9


+ 242 Pharaoh drew near, and the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold! the Egyptians were advancing after them. They were very frightened, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord. Shemot 14:10


+ 235 They said to Moses, Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us to die in the desert? What is this that you have done to us to take us out of Egypt? Shemot 14:11


+ 180 Isn't this the thing about which we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, Leave us alone, and we will serve the Egyptians, because we would rather serve the Egyptians than die in the desert. Shemot 14:12


+ 245 Moses said to the people, Don't be afraid! Stand firm and see the Lord's salvation that He will wreak for you today, for the way you have seen the Egyptians is only today, but you shall no longer continue to see them for eternity. Shemot 14:13


+ 190 The Lord will fight for you, but you shall remain silent. Shemot 14:14


+ 203 The Lord said to Moses, Why do you cry out to Me? Speak to the children of Israel and let them travel. Shemot 14:15


+ 196 And you raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and split it, and the children of Israel shall come in the midst of the sea on dry land. Shemot 14:16


+ 195 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


+ 195 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I will be glorified through Pharaoh, through his chariots, and through his horsemen. Shemot 14:18


+ 230 Then the angel of God, who had been going in front of the Israelite camp, moved and went behind them, and the pillar of cloud moved away from in front of them and stood behind them. Shemot 14:19


+ 202 And he came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel, and there were the cloud and the darkness, and it illuminated the night, and one did not draw near the other all night long. Shemot 14:20


+ 204 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord led the sea with the strong east wind all night, and He made the sea into dry land and the waters split. Shemot 14:21


+ 190 Then the children of Israel came into the midst of the sea on dry land, and the waters were to them as a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:22


+ 203 The Egyptians pursued and came after them all Pharaoh s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen, into the midst of the sea. Shemot 14:23


+ 208 It came about in the morning watch that the Lord looked down over the Egyptian camp through a pillar of fire and cloud, and He threw the Egyptian camp into confusion. Shemot 14:24


+ 217 And He removed the wheels of their chariots, and He led them with heaviness, and the Egyptians said, Let me run away from the Israelites because the Lord is fighting for them against the Egyptians. Shemot 14:25


+ 195 Thereupon, the Lord said to Moses, Stretch out your hand over the sea, and let the water return upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. Shemot 14:26


+ 216 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


+ 211 And the waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen, the entire force of Pharaoh coming after them into the sea; not even one of them survived. Shemot 14:28


+ 179 But the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the water was to them like a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:29


+ 207 On that day the Lord saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dying on the seashore. Shemot 14:30


+ 223 And Israel saw the great hand, which the Lord had used upon the Egyptians, and the people feared the Lord, and they believed in the Lord and in Moses, His servant. Shemot 14:31


+ 216 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and they spoke, saying, I will sing to the Lord, for very exalted is He; a horse and its rider He cast into the sea. Shemot 15:1


+ 197 The Eternal's strength and His vengeance were my salvation; this is my God, and I will make Him a habitation, the God of my father, and I will ascribe to Him exaltation. Shemot 15:2


+ 180 The Lord is a Master of war; the Lord is His Name. Shemot 15:3


+ 172 Pharaoh's chariots and his army He cast into the sea, and the elite of his officers sank in the Red Sea. Shemot 15:4


+ 159 The depths covered them; they descended into the depths like a stone. Shemot 15:5


+ 165 Your right hand, O Lord, is most powerful; Your right hand, O Lord, crushes the foe. Shemot 15:6


+ 223 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


+ 207 And with the breath of Your nostrils the waters were heaped up; the running water stood erect like a wall; the depths congealed in the heart of the sea. Shemot 15:8


+ 213 Because the enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will share the booty; my desire will be filled from them; I will draw my sword, my hand will impoverish them. Shemot 15:9


+ 186 You blew with Your wind, the sea covered them; they sank like lead in the powerful waters. Shemot 15:10


+ 222 Who is like You among the powerful, O Lord? Who is like You, powerful in the holy place? Too awesome for praises, performing wonders! Shemot 15:11


+ 189 You inclined Your right hand; the earth swallowed them up. Shemot 15:12


+ 188 With Your loving kindness You led the people You redeemed; You led them with Your might to Your holy abode. Shemot 15:13


+ 199 Peoples heard, they trembled; a shudder seized the inhabitants of Philistia. Shemot 15:14


+ 202 Then the chieftains of Edom were startled; as for the powerful men of Moab, trembling seized them; all the inhabitants of Canaan melted. Shemot 15:15


+ 241 May dread and fright fall upon them; with the arm of Your greatness may they become as still as a stone, until Your people cross over, O Lord, until this nation that You have acquired crosses over. Shemot 15:16


+ 198 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


+ 172 The Lord will reign to all eternity. Shemot 15:18


+ 222 When Pharaoh's horses came with his chariots and his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought the waters of the sea back upon them, and the children of Israel walked on dry land in the midst of the sea, Shemot 15:19


+ 183 Miriam, the prophetess, Aaron's sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women came out after her with timbrels and with dances. Shemot 15:20


+ 182 And Miriam called out to them, Sing to the Lord, for very exalted is He; a horse and its rider He cast into the sea. Shemot 15:21


+ 202 Moses led Israel away from the Red Sea, and they went out into the desert of Shur; they walked for three days in the desert but did not find water. Shemot 15:22


+ 206 They came to Marah, but they could not drink water from Marah because it was bitter; therefore, it was named Marah. Shemot 15:23


+ 180 The people complained against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? Shemot 15:24


+ 192 So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord instructed him concerning a piece of wood, which he cast into the water, and the water became sweet. There He gave them a statute and an ordinance, and there He tested them. Shemot 15:25


+ 250 And He said, If you hearken to the voice of the Lord, your God, and you do what is proper in His eyes, and you listen closely to His commandments and observe all His statutes, all the sicknesses that I have visited upon Egypt I will not visit upon you, for I, the Lord, heal you. Shemot 15:26


+ 188 They came to Elim, and there were twelve water fountains and seventy palms, and they encamped there by the water. Shemot 15:27


+ 228 They journeyed from Elim, and the entire community of the children of Israel came to the desert of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departure from the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:1


+ 207 The entire community of the children of Israel complained against Moses and against Aaron in the desert. Shemot 16:2


+ 253 The children of Israel said to them, If only we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by pots of meat, when we ate bread to our fill! For you have brought us out into this desert, to starve this entire congregation to death. Shemot 16:3


+ 244 So the Lord said to Moses, Behold! I am going to rain down for you bread from heaven, and the people shall go out and gather what is needed for the day, so that I can test them, whether or not they will follow My teaching. Shemot 16:4


+ 196 And it shall be on the sixth day that when they prepare what they will bring, it will be double of what they gather every day. Shemot 16:5


+ 220 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, In the evening, you shall know that the Lord brought you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:6


+ 207 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


+ 252 And Moses said, When the Lord gives you in the evening meat to eat and bread in the morning with which to become sated, when the Lord hears your complaints, which you are making the people complain against Him, but of what significance are we? Not against us are your complaints, but against the Lord. Shemot 16:8


+ 222 And Moses said to Aaron, Say to the entire community of the children of Israel, Draw near before the Lord, for He has heard your complaints. Shemot 16:9


+ 202 And it came to pass when Aaron spoke to the entire community of the children of Israel, that they turned toward the desert, and behold! the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud. Shemot 16:10


+ 187 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 16:11


+ 236 I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, In the afternoon you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be sated with bread, and you shall know that I am the Lord, your God. Shemot 16:12


+ 181 It came to pass in the evening that the quails went up and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. Shemot 16:13


+ 204 The layer of dew went up, and behold, on the surface of the desert, a fine, bare substance as fine as frost on the ground. Shemot 16:14


+ 214 When the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, It is manna, because they did not know what it was, and Moses said to them, It is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat. Shemot 16:15


+ 201 This is the thing that the Lord has commanded, Gather of it each one according to his eating capacity, an omer for each person, according to the number of persons, each one for those in his tent you shall take. Shemot 16:16


+ 206 And the children of Israel did so: they gathered, both the one who gathered much and the one who gathered little. Shemot 16:17


+ 197 And they measured it with an omer, and whoever gathered much did not have more, and whoever gathered little did not have less; each one according to his eating capacity, they gathered. Shemot 16:18


+ 182 And Moses said to them, Let no one leave over any of it until morning. Shemot 16:19


+ 197 But some men did not obey Moses and left over some of it until morning, and it bred worms and became putrid, and Moses became angry with them. Shemot 16:20


+ 154 They gathered it morning by morning, each one according to his eating capacity, and when the sun grew hot, it melted. Shemot 16:21


+ 221 It came to pass on the sixth day that they gathered a double portion of bread, two omers for each one, and all the princes of the community came and reported it to Moses. Shemot 16:22


+ 208 So he said to them, That is what the Lord spoke, Tomorrow is a rest day, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Bake whatever you wish to bake, and cook whatever you wish to cook, and all the rest leave over to keep until morning. Shemot 16:23


+ 185 So they left it over until morning, as Moses had commanded, and it did not become putrid, and not a worm was in it. Shemot 16:24


+ 177 And Moses said, Eat it today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field. Shemot 16:25


+ 220 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day which is the Sabbath on it there will be none. Shemot 16:26


+ 180 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


+ 204 The Lord said to Moses, How long will you refuse to observe My commandments and My teachings? Shemot 16:28


+ 247 See that the Lord has given you the Sabbath. Therefore, on the sixth day, He gives you bread for two days. Let each man remain in his place; let no man leave his place on the seventh day. Shemot 16:29


+ 170 So the people rested on the seventh day. Shemot 16:30


+ 199 The house of Israel named it manna, and it was like coriander seed, it was white, and it tasted like a wafer with honey. Shemot 16:31


+ 209 Moses said, This is the thing that the Lord commanded: Let one omerful of it be preserved for your generations, in order that they see the bread that I fed you in the desert when I took you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:32


+ 192 And Moses said to Aaron, Take one jug and put there an omerful of manna, and deposit it before the Lord to be preserved for your generations. Shemot 16:33


+ 191 As the Lord had commanded Moses, Aaron deposited it before the testimony to be preserved. Shemot 16:34


+ 214 And the children of Israel ate the manna for forty years until they came to an inhabited land. They ate the manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan. Shemot 16:35


+ 163 The omer is one tenth of an ephah. Shemot 16:36


+ 219 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


+ 203 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


+ 265 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


+ 226 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


+ 219 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


+ 226 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


+ 199 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


+ 176 Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. Shemot 17:8


+ 225 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


+ 217 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


+ 201 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


+ 228 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


+ 175 Joshua weakened Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. Shemot 17:13


+ 217 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


+ 204 Then Moses built an altar, and he named it The Lord is my miracle. Shemot 17:15


+ 212 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


+ 223 Now Moses' father in law, Jethro, the chieftain of Midian, heard all that God had done for Moses and for Israel, His people that the Lord had taken Israel out of Egypt. Shemot 18:1


+ 197 So Moses' father in law, Jethro, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after she had been sent away, Shemot 18:2


+ 201 And her two sons, one of whom was named Gershom, because he said, "I was a stranger in a foreign land," Shemot 18:3


+ 231 And one who was named Eliezer, because Moses said, "The God of my father came to my aid and rescued me from Pharaoh's sword." Shemot 18:4


+ 209 Now Moses father in law, Jethro, and his Moses sons and his wife came to Moses, to the desert where he was encamped, to the mountain of God. Shemot 18:5


+ 193 And he said to Moses, I, Jethro, your father in law, am coming to you, and so is your wife and her two sons with her. Shemot 18:6


+ 215 So Moses went out toward Jethro, prostrated himself and kissed him, and they greeted one another, and they entered the tent. Shemot 18:7


+ 216 Moses told his father in law about all that the Lord had done to Pharaoh and to the Egyptians on account of Israel, and about all the hardships that had befallen them on the way, and that the Lord had saved them. Shemot 18:8


+ 195 Jethro was happy about all the good that the Lord had done for Israel, that He had rescued them from the hands of the Egyptians. Shemot 18:9


+ 231 Thereupon, Jethro said, Blessed is the Lord, Who has rescued you from the hands of the Egyptians and from the hand of Pharaoh, Who has rescued the people from beneath the hand of the Egyptians. Shemot 18:10


+ 218 Now I know that the Lord is greater than all the deities, for with the thing that they plotted, He came upon them. Shemot 18:11


+ 225 Then Moses father in law, Jethro, sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings to God, and Aaron and all the elders of Israel came to dine with Moses father in law before God. Shemot 18:12


+ 193 It came about on the next day that Moses sat down to judge the people, and the people stood before Moses from the morning until the evening. Shemot 18:13


+ 197 When Moses father in law saw what he was doing to the people, he said, What is this thing that you are doing to the people? Why do you sit by yourself, while all the people stand before you from morning till evening? Shemot 18:14


+ 188 Moses said to his father in law, For the people come to me to seek God. Shemot 18:15


+ 178 If any of them has a case, he comes to me, and I judge between a man and his neighbor, and I make known the statutes of God and His teachings. Shemot 18:16


+ 203 Moses father in law said to him, The thing you are doing is not good. Shemot 18:17


+ 184 You will surely wear yourself out both you and these people who are with you for the matter is too heavy for you; you cannot do it alone. Shemot 18:18


+ 178 Now listen to me. I will advise you, and may the Lord be with you. You represent the people before God, and you shall bring the matters to God. Shemot 18:19


+ 200 And you shall admonish them concerning the statutes and the teachings, and you shall make known to them the way they shall go and the deeds they shall do. Shemot 18:20


+ 237 But you shall choose out of the entire nation men of substance, God fearers, men of truth, who hate monetary gain, and you shall appoint over them Israel leaders over thousands, leaders over hundreds, leaders over fifties, and leaders over tens. Shemot 18:21


+ 210 And they shall judge the people at all times, and it shall be that any major matter they shall bring to you, and they themselves shall judge every minor matter, thereby making it easier for you, and they shall bear the burden with you. Shemot 18:22


+ 219 If you do this thing, and the Lord commands you, you will be able to survive, and also, all this people will come upon their place in peace. Shemot 18:23


+ 178 Moses obeyed his father in law, and he did all that he said. Shemot 18:24


+ 213 Moses chose men of substance out of all Israel and appointed them as heads of the people, leaders of thousands, leaders of hundreds, leaders of fifties, and leaders of tens. Shemot 18:25


+ 187 And they would judge the people at all times; the difficult case they would bring to Moses, but any minor case they themselves would judge. Shemot 18:26


+ 184 Moses saw his father in law off, and he went away to his land. Shemot 18:27


+ 205 In the third month of the children of Israel's departure from Egypt, on this day they arrived in the desert of Sinai. Shemot 19:1


+ 208 They journeyed from Rephidim, and they arrived in the desert of Sinai, and they encamped in the desert, and Israel encamped there opposite the mountain. Shemot 19:2


+ 229 Moses ascended to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, So shall you say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel, Shemot 19:3


+ 197 You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles wings, and I brought you to Me. Shemot 19:4


+ 214 And now, if you obey Me and keep My covenant, you shall be to Me a treasure out of all peoples, for Mine is the entire earth. Shemot 19:5


+ 198 And you shall be to Me a kingdom of princes and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the children of Israel. Shemot 19:6


+ 204 Moses came and summoned the elders of Israel and placed before them all these words that the Lord had commanded him. Shemot 19:7


+ 223 And all the people replied in unison and said, All that the Lord has spoken we shall do! and Moses took the words of the people back to the Lord. Shemot 19:8


+ 190 And the Lord said to Moses, Behold, I am coming to you in the thickness of the cloud, in order that the people hear when I speak to you, and they will also believe in you forever. And Moses relayed the words of the people to the Lord. Shemot 19:9


+ 204 And the Lord said to Moses, Go to the people and prepare them today and tomorrow, and they shall wash their garments. Shemot 19:10


+ 167 And they shall be prepared for the third day, for on the third day, the Lord will descend before the eyes of all the people upon Mount Sinai. Shemot 19:11


+ 206 And you shall set boundaries for the people around, saying, Beware of ascending the mountain or touching its edge; whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death. Shemot 19:12


+ 219 No hand shall touch it, for he shall be stoned or cast down; whether man or beast, he shall not live. When the ram's horn sounds a long, drawn out blast, they may ascend the mountain. Shemot 19:13


+ 187 So Moses descended from the mountain to the people, and he prepared the people, and they washed their garments. Shemot 19:14


+ 186 He said to the people, Be ready for three days; do not go near a woman. Shemot 19:15


+ 203 It came to pass on the third day when it was morning, that there were thunder claps and lightning flashes, and a thick cloud was upon the mountain, and a very powerful blast of a shofar, and the entire nation that was in the camp shuddered. Shemot 19:16


+ 193 Moses brought the people out toward God from the camp, and they stood at the bottom of the mountain. Shemot 19:17


+ 195 And the entire Mount Sinai smoked because the Lord had descended upon it in fire, and its smoke ascended like the smoke of the kiln, and the entire mountain quaked violently. Shemot 19:18


+ 192 The sound of the shofar grew increasingly stronger; Moses would speak and God would answer him with a voice. Shemot 19:19


+ 182 The Lord descended upon Mount Sinai, to the peak of the mountain, and the Lord summoned Moses to the peak of the mountain, and Moses ascended. Shemot 19:20


+ 192 The Lord said to Moses, Go down, warn the people lest they break their formation to go nearer to the Lord, and many of them will fall. Shemot 19:21


+ 191 And also, the priests who go near to the Lord shall prepare themselves, lest the Lord wreak destruction upon them. Shemot 19:22


+ 217 And Moses said to the Lord, The people cannot ascend to Mount Sinai, for You warned us saying, Set boundaries for the mountain and sanctify it. Shemot 19:23


+ 224 But the Lord said to him, Go, descend, and then you shall ascend, and Aaron with you, but the priests and the populace shall not break their formation to ascend to the Lord, lest He wreak destruction upon them. Shemot 19:24


+ 165 So Moses went down to the people and said this to them. Shemot 19:25


+ 158 God spoke all these words, to respond: Shemot 20:1


+ 182 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Shemot 20:2


+ 199 You shall not have the gods of others in My presence. Shemot 20:3


+ 220 You shall not make for yourself a graven image or any likeness which is in the heavens above, which is on the earth below, or which is in the water beneath the earth. Shemot 20:4


+ 203 You shall neither prostrate yourself before them nor worship them, for I, the Lord, your God, am a zealous God, Who visits the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons, upon the third and the fourth generation of those who hate Me, Shemot 20:5


+ 223 And I perform loving kindness to thousands of generations, to those who love Me and to those who keep My commandments. Shemot 20:6


+ 190 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


+ 176 Remember the Sabbath day to sanctify it. Shemot 20:8


+ 188 Six days may you work and perform all your labor, Shemot 20:9


+ 244 But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord, your God; you shall perform no labor, neither you, your son, your daughter, your manservant, your maidservant, your beast, nor your stranger who is in your cities. Shemot 20:10


+ 196 For in six days the Lord made the heaven and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and He rested on the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and sanctified it. Shemot 20:11


+ 189 Honor your father and your mother, in order that your days be lengthened on the land that the Lord, your God, is giving you. Shemot 20:12


+ 213 You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Shemot 20:13


+ 209 You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, his manservant, his maidservant, his ox, his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbor. Shemot 20:14


+ 197 And all the people saw the voices and the torches, the sound of the shofar, and the smoking mountain, and the people saw and trembled; so they stood from afar. Shemot 20:15


+ 196 They said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear, but let God not speak with us lest we die. Shemot 20:16


+ 234 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


+ 222 The people remained far off, but Moses drew near to the opaque darkness, where God was. Shemot 20:18


+ 254 The Lord said to Moses, So shall you say to the children of Israel, You have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you. Shemot 20:19


+ 219 You shall not make images of anything that is with Me. Gods of silver or gods of gold you shall not make for yourselves. Shemot 20:20


+ 221 An altar of earth you shall make for Me, and you shall slaughter beside it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your cattle. Wherever I allow My name to be mentioned, I will come to you and bless you. Shemot 20:21


+ 192 And when you make for Me an altar of stones, you shall not build them of hewn stones, lest you wield your sword upon it and desecrate it. Shemot 20:22


+ 199 And you shall not ascend with steps upon My altar, so that your nakedness shall not be exposed upon it. Shemot 20:23


+ 165 And these are the ordinances that you shall set before them. Shemot 21:1


+ 199 Should you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall work for six years, and in the seventh year, he shall go out to freedom without charge. Shemot 21:2


+ 173 If he comes in alone, he shall go out alone; if he is a married man, his wife shall go out with him. Shemot 21:3


+ 190 If his master gives him a wife, and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to her master, and he shall go out alone. Shemot 21:4


+ 214 But if the slave says, I love my master, my wife, and my children. I will not go free, Shemot 21:5


+ 186 His master shall bring him to the judges, and he shall bring him to the door or to the doorpost, and his master shall bore his ear with an awl, and he shall serve him forever. Shemot 21:6


+ 180 Now if a man sells his daughter as a maidservant, she shall not go free as the slaves go free. Shemot 21:7


+ 205 If she is displeasing to her master, who did not designate her for himself, then he shall enable her to be redeemed; he shall not rule over her to sell her to another person, when he betrays her. Shemot 21:8


+ 191 And if he designates her for his son, he shall deal with her according to the law of the daughters of Israel. Shemot 21:9


+ 187 If he takes another wife for himself, he shall not diminish her sustenance, her clothing, or her marital relations. Shemot 21:10


+ 205 And if he does not do these three things for her, she shall go free without charge, without payment of money. Shemot 21:11


+ 159 One who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:12


+ 205 But one who did not stalk him, but God brought it about into his hand, I will make a place for you to which he shall flee. Shemot 21:13


+ 193 But if a man plots deliberately against his friend to slay him with cunning, even from My altar you shall take him to die. Shemot 21:14


+ 194 And one who strikes his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:15


+ 183 And whoever kidnaps a man, and he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:16


+ 210 And one who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:17


+ 171 And if men quarrel, and one strikes the other with a stone or with a fist, and he does not die but is confined to his bed, Shemot 21:18


+ 208 If he gets up and walks about outside on his support, the assailant shall be cleared; he shall give only payment for his enforced idleness, and he shall provide for his cure. Shemot 21:19


+ 170 And should a man strike his manservant or his maidservant with a rod, and that one die under his hand, he shall surely be avenged. Shemot 21:20


+ 177 But if he survives for a day or for two days, he shall not be avenged, because he is his property. Shemot 21:21


+ 228 And should men quarrel and hit a pregnant woman, and she miscarries but there is no fatality, he shall surely be punished, when the woman's husband makes demands of him, and he shall give restitution according to the judges orders. Shemot 21:22


+ 205 But if there is a fatality, you shall give a life for a life, Shemot 21:23


+ 154 An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, a foot for a foot, Shemot 21:24


+ 184 A burn for a burn, a wound for a wound, a bruise for a bruise. Shemot 21:25


+ 220 And if a man strikes the eye of his manservant or the eye of his maidservant and destroys it, he shall set him free in return for his eye, Shemot 21:26


+ 192 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


+ 258 And if a bull gores a man or a woman and that one dies, the bull shall surely be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten, and the owner of the bull is clear. Shemot 21:28


+ 181 But if it is a habitually goring bull since yesterday and the day before yesterday, and its owner had been warned, but he did not guard it, and it puts to death a man or a woman, the bull shall be stoned, and also its owner shall be put to death, Shemot 21:29


+ 185 Insofar as ransom shall be levied upon him, he shall give the redemption of his soul according to all that is levied upon him. Shemot 21:30


+ 207 Or if it gores a young boy or a young girl, according to this ordinance shall be done to him. Shemot 21:31


+ 199 If the bull gores a manservant or a maidservant, he shall give silver in the amount of thirty shekels to his master, and the bull shall be stoned. Shemot 21:32


+ 170 And if a person opens a pit, or if a person digs a pit and does not cover it, and a bull or a donkey falls into it, Shemot 21:33


+ 178 The owner of the pit shall pay; he shall return money to its owner, and the dead body shall be his. Shemot 21:34


+ 184 And if a man's bull strikes his friend's bull and it dies, they shall sell the live bull and divide the money received for it, and they shall also divide the dead body. Shemot 21:35


+ 195 Or if it was known that it was a habitually goring bull since yesterday and the day before yesterday, and its owner does not watch it, he shall surely pay a bull for a bull, and the dead body shall be his. Shemot 21:36


+ 205 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


+ 199 If, while breaking in, the thief is discovered, and he is struck and dies, it is as if he has no blood. Shemot 22:1


+ 204 If the sun shone upon him, it is as if he has blood; he shall surely pay. If he has no money, he shall be sold for his theft. Shemot 22:2


+ 206 If the stolen article is found in his possession whether a bull, a donkey, or a lamb live ones he shall pay twofold. Shemot 22:3


+ 195 If a man leads his animals into a field or a vineyard, or lets his animal loose and it eats in another's field, the best of his field or the best of his vineyard he shall pay. Shemot 22:4


+ 209 If a fire goes forth and finds thorns, and a stack of grain or standing grain or the field be consumed, the one who ignited the fire shall surely pay. Shemot 22:5


+ 207 If a man gives his neighbor money or articles for safekeeping, and it is stolen from the man's house, if the thief is found, he shall pay twofold. Shemot 22:6


+ 195 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


+ 225 For any sinful word, for a bull, for a donkey, for a lamb, for a garment, for any lost article, concerning which he will say that this is it, the pleas of both parties shall come to the judges, and whoever the judges declare guilty shall pay twofold to his neighbor. Shemot 22:8


+ 189 If a man gives his neighbor a donkey, a bull, a lamb, or any animal for safekeeping, and it dies, breaks a limb, or is captured, and no one sees it, Shemot 22:9


+ 189 The oath of the Lord shall be between the two of them provided that he did not lay his hand upon his neighbor's property, and its owner shall accept it, and he shall not pay. Shemot 22:10


+ 205 But if it is stolen from him, he shall pay its owner. Shemot 22:11


+ 198 If it is torn apart, he shall bring witness for it; for the torn one he shall not pay. Shemot 22:12


+ 215 And if a person borrows an animal from his neighbor and it breaks a limb or dies, if its owner is not with him, he shall surely pay. Shemot 22:13


+ 188 If its owner is with him, he shall not pay; if it is a hired animal, it has come for its hire. Shemot 22:14


+ 233 If a man seduces a virgin who is not betrothed and lies with her, he shall provide her with a marriage contract as a wife. Shemot 22:15


+ 208 If her father refuses to give her to him in marriage, he shall weigh out money according to the dowry of the virgins. Shemot 22:16


+ 199 You shall not allow a sorceress to live. Shemot 22:17


+ 186 Whoever lies carnally with an animal shall surely be put to death. Shemot 22:18


+ 205 He who slaughters a sacrifice to the gods shall be destroyed, except to the Lord alone. Shemot 22:19


+ 212 And you shall not mistreat a stranger, nor shall you oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. Shemot 22:20


+ 185 You shall not oppress any widow or orphan. Shemot 22:21


+ 190 If you oppress him, beware, for if he cries out to Me, I will surely hear his cry. Shemot 22:22


+ 198 My wrath will be kindled, and I will slay you with the sword, and your wives will be widows and your children orphans. Shemot 22:23


+ 230 When you lend money to My people, to the poor person who is with you, you shall not behave toward him as a lender; you shall not impose interest upon him. Shemot 22:24


+ 183 If you take your neighbor's garment as security, until sunset you shall return it to him, Shemot 22:25


+ 228 For it is his only covering; it is his garment for his skin. With what shall he lie? And it shall be that if he cries out to Me, I will hear because I am gracious. Shemot 22:26


+ 174 You shall not curse a judge, neither shall you curse a prince among your people. Shemot 22:27


+ 193 Your fullness offering and your heave offering you shall not delay; the firstborn of your sons you shall give Me. Shemot 22:28


+ 189 So shall you do with your cattle and with your sheep: seven days it shall be with its mother, on the eighth day you may give it to Me. Shemot 22:29


+ 168 And you shall be holy people to Me, and flesh torn in the field you shall not eat; you shall throw it to the dogs. Shemot 22:30


+ 176 You shall not accept a false report; do not place your hand with a wicked person to be a false witness. Shemot 23:1


+ 191 You shall not follow the majority for evil, and you shall not respond concerning a lawsuit to follow many to pervert justice. Shemot 23:2


+ 196 Neither shall you glorify a poor man in his lawsuit. Shemot 23:3


+ 176 If you come upon your enemy's bull or his stray donkey, you shall surely return it to him. Shemot 23:4


+ 216 If you see your enemy's donkey lying under its burden would you refrain from helping him? You shall surely help along with him. Shemot 23:5


+ 191 You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor man in his lawsuit. Shemot 23:6


+ 223 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


+ 186 You shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe will blind the clear sighted and corrupt words that are right. Shemot 23:8


+ 205 And you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the feelings of the stranger, since you were strangers in the land of Egypt. Shemot 23:9


+ 164 Six years you may sow your land and gather in its produce. Shemot 23:10


+ 240 But in the seventh year you shall release it and abandon it; the poor of your people shall eat it, and what they leave over, the beasts of the field shall eat. So shall you do to your vineyard and to your olive trees. Shemot 23:11


+ 205 Six days you may do your work, but on the seventh day you shall rest, in order that your ox and your donkey shall rest, and your maidservant's son and the stranger shall be refreshed. Shemot 23:12


+ 205 Concerning all that I have said to you you shall beware, and the name of the gods of others you shall not mention; it shall not be heard through your mouth. Shemot 23:13


+ 183 Three times you shall slaughter sacrifices to Me during the year. Shemot 23:14


+ 231 You shall observe the festival of unleavened bread; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread as I have commanded you, at the appointed time of the month of springtime, for then you left Egypt, and they shall not appear before Me empty handed. Shemot 23:15


+ 197 And the festival of the harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you will sow in the field, and the festival of the ingathering at the departure of the year, when you gather in the products of your labors from the field. Shemot 23:16


+ 169 Three times during the year, all your males shall appear before the Master, the Lord. Shemot 23:17


+ 197 You shall not sacrifice the blood of My sacrifice with leaven, and the fat of My festive sacrifice shall not stay overnight until morning. Shemot 23:18


+ 210 The choicest of the first fruits of your soil you shall bring to the house of the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Shemot 23:19


+ 186 Behold, I am sending an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. Shemot 23:20


+ 197 Beware of him and obey him; do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your transgression, for My Name is within him. Shemot 23:21


+ 188 For if you hearken to his voice and do all that I say, I will hate your enemies and oppress your adversaries. Shemot 23:22


+ 195 For My angel will go before you, and bring you to the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, and I will destroy them. Shemot 23:23


+ 209 You shall not prostrate yourself before their gods, and you shall not worship them, and you shall not follow their practices, but you shall tear them down and you shall utterly shatter their monuments. Shemot 23:24


+ 214 And you shall worship the Lord, your God, and He will bless your food and your drink, and I will remove illness from your midst. Shemot 23:25


+ 188 There will be no bereaved or barren woman in your land; I will fill the number of your days. Shemot 23:26


+ 194 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


+ 186 And I will send the tzir'ah before you, and it will drive out the Hivvites, the Canaanites, and the Hittites from before you. Shemot 23:28


+ 194 I will not drive them away from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field outnumber you. Shemot 23:29


+ 195 I will drive them out from before you little by little, until you have increased and can occupy the land. Shemot 23:30


+ 221 And I will make your boundary from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert to the river, for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hands, and you shall drive them out from before you. Shemot 23:31


+ 192 You shall not form a covenant for them or for their gods. Shemot 23:32


+ 192 They shall not dwell in your land, lest they cause you to sin against Me, that you will worship their gods, which will be a snare for you. Shemot 23:33


+ 228 And to Moses He said, Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and prostrate yourselves from afar. Shemot 24:1


+ 181 And Moses alone shall approach the Lord but they shall not approach, and the people shall not ascend with him." Shemot 24:2


+ 210 So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the ordinances, and all the people answered in unison and said, "All the words that the Lord has spoken we will do." Shemot 24:3


+ 210 And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord, and he arose early in the morning and built an altar at the foot of the mountain and twelve monuments for the twelve tribes of Israel. Shemot 24:4


+ 219 And he sent the youths of the children of Israel, and they offered up burnt offerings, and they slaughtered peace offerings to the Lord, bulls. Shemot 24:5


+ 182 And Moses took half the blood and put it into the basins, and half the blood he cast onto the altar. Shemot 24:6


+ 172 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


+ 234 And Moses took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, and he said, "Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord has formed with you concerning these words." Shemot 24:8


+ 190 And Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel ascended, Shemot 24:9


+ 195 And they perceived the God of Israel, and beneath His feet was like the forming of a sapphire brick and like the appearance of the heavens for clarity. Shemot 24:10


+ 171 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand, and they perceived God, and they ate and drank. Shemot 24:11


+ 212 And the Lord said to Moses, Come up to Me to the mountain and remain there, and I will give you the stone tablets, the Law and the commandments, which I have written to instruct them. Shemot 24:12


+ 206 So Moses and Joshua, his servant, arose, and Moses ascended to the mount of God. Shemot 24:13


+ 178 And to the elders he said, Wait for us here until we return to you, and here Aaron and Hur are with you; whoever has a case, let him go to them. Shemot 24:14


+ 183 And Moses went up to the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. Shemot 24:15


+ 193 And the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days, and He called to Moses on the seventh day from within the cloud. Shemot 24:16


+ 287 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


+ 162 And Moses came within the cloud, and he went up to the mountain, and Moses was upon the mountain forty days and forty nights. Shemot 24:18


+ 183 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Shemot 25:1


+ 205 Speak to the children of Israel, and have them take for Me an offering; from every person whose heart inspires him to generosity, you shall take My offering. Shemot 25:2


+ 188 And this is the offering that you shall take from them: gold, silver, and copper; Shemot 25:3


+ 167 Blue, purple, and crimson wool; linen and goat hair; Shemot 25:4


+ 182 Ram skins dyed red, tachash skins, and acacia wood; Shemot 25:5


+ 178 Oil for lighting, spices for the anointing oil and for the incense; Shemot 25:6


+ 165 Shoham stones and filling stones for the ephod and for the choshen. Shemot 25:7


+ 171 And they shall make Me a sanctuary and I will dwell in their midst Shemot 25:8


+ 189 According to all that I show you, the pattern of the Mishkan and the pattern of all its vessels; and so shall you do. Shemot 25:9


+ 198 They shall make an ark of acacia wood, two and a half cubits its length, a cubit and a half its width, and a cubit and a half its height. Shemot 25:10


+ 199 And you shall overlay it with pure gold; from inside and from outside you shall overlay it, and you shall make upon it a golden crown all around. Shemot 25:11


+ 198 And you shall cast four golden rings for it, and you shall place them upon its four corners, two rings on its one side, and two rings on its other side. Shemot 25:12


+ 193 And you shall make poles of acacia wood and you shall overlay them with gold. Shemot 25:13


+ 187 And you shall bring the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to carry the ark with them. Shemot 25:14


+ 198 The poles of the ark shall be in the rings; they shall not be removed from it. Shemot 25:15


+ 192 And you shall place into the ark the testimony, which I will give you. Shemot 25:16


+ 212 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

+ 271 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


+ 199 And when Aaron kindles the lights in the afternoon, he shall make it go up in smoke, continual incense before the Lord for your generations. shemot 30:8


+ 175 You shall offer up on it no alien incense, burnt offering, or meal offering, and you shall pour no libation upon it. Shemot 30:9


+ 190 But Aaron shall make atonement upon its horns once a year; with the blood of the sin offering of the atonements, once a year he shall effect atonement upon it for your generations; it is a holy of holies to the Lord. Shemot 30:10


+ 182 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:11


+ 198 When you take the sum of the children of Israel according to their numbers, let each one give to the Lord an atonement for his soul when they are counted; then there will be no plague among them when they are counted. Shemot 30:12


+ 224 This they shall give, everyone who goes through the counting: half a shekel according to the holy shekel. Twenty gerahs equal one shekel; half of such a shekel shall be an offering to the Lord. Shemot 30:13


+ 205 Everyone who goes through the counting, from the age of twenty and upward, shall give an offering to the Lord. Shemot 30:14


+ 242 The rich shall give no more, and the poor shall give no less than half a shekel, with which to give the offering to the Lord, to atone for your souls. Shemot 30:15


+ 192 You shall take the silver of the atonements from the children of Israel and use it for the work of the Tent of Meeting; it shall be a remembrance for the children of Israel before the Lord, to atone for your souls. Shemot 30:16


+ 156 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:17


+ 188 You shall make a washstand of copper and its base of copper for washing, and you shall place it between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and you shall put water therein. Shemot 30:18


+ 168 Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and feet from it. Shemot 30:19


+ 201 When they enter the Tent of Meeting, they shall wash with water so that they will not die; or when they approach the altar to serve, to make a fire offering rise up in smoke to the Lord, Shemot 30:20


+ 179 They shall wash their hands and feet so that they will not die; this shall be for them a perpetual statute, for him and for his descendants, for their generations. Shemot 30:21


+ 155 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:22


+ 198 And you, take for yourself spices of the finest sort: of pure myrrh five hundred shekel weights; of fragrant cinnamon half of it two hundred and fifty shekel weights; of fragrant cane two hundred and fifty shekel weights, Shemot 30:23


+ 157 And of cassia five hundred shekel weights according to the holy shekel, and one hin of olive oil. Shemot 30:24


+ 166 You shall make this into an oil of holy annoinment, a perfumed compound according to the art of a perfumer; it shall be an oil of holy anointment. Shemot 30:25


+ 150 And you shall anoint with it the Tent of Meeting and the Ark of Testimony, Shemot 30:26


+ 148 The table and all its implements, the menorah and its implements, the altar of incense, Shemot 30:27


+ 137 The altar of the burnt offering and all its implements, the washstand and its base. Shemot 30:28


+ 159 And you shall sanctify them so that they become a holy of holies; whatever touches them shall become holy. Shemot 30:29


+ 144 And with it you shall anoint Aaron and his sons and sanctify them to serve Me as kohanim. Shemot 30:30


+ 168 And to the children of Israel you shall speak, saying: This shall be oil of holy anointment to Me for your generations. Shemot 30:31


+ 184 It shall not be poured upon human flesh, and according to its formula you shall not make anything like it. It is holy; it shall be holy to you. Shemot 30:32


+ 177 Any person who compounds anything like it or puts any of it on an alien shall be cut off from his people. Shemot 30:33


+ 210 And the Lord said to Moses: Take for yourself aromatics, namely balsam sap, onycha and galbanum, aromatics and pure frankincense; they shall be of equal weight. Shemot 30:34


+ 195 And you shall make it into incense, a compound according to the art of the perfumer, well blended, pure, holy. Shemot 30:35


+ 187 And you shall crush some of it very finely, and you shall set some of it before the testimony in the Tent of Meeting, where I will arrange meetings with you; it shall be to you a holy of holies. Shemot 30:36


+ 165 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


+ 187 Any person who makes anything like it, to smell its fragrance, shall be cut off from his people. Shemot 30:38


+ 156 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 31:1


+ 142 See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, Shemot 31:2


+ 183 And I have imbued him with the spirit of God, with wisdom, with insight, with knowledge, and with talent for all manner of craftsmanship Shemot 31:3


+ 144 To do master weaving, to work with gold, with silver, and with copper, Shemot 31:4


+ 148 With the craft of stones for setting and with the craft of wood, to do every manner of work. Shemot 31:5


+ 210 And, behold, with him I have placed Oholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, and all the wise hearted into whose hearts I have instilled wisdom, and they shall make everything I have commanded you: Shemot 31:6


+ 183 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


+ 132 The table and its implements, the pure menorah and all its implements, the altar of incense, Shemot 31:8


+ 161 The altar for the burnt offering and all its implements, the washstand and its base, Shemot 31:9


+ 155 The meshwork garments, the holy garments for Aaron the kohen, the garments of his sons in which to serve as kohanim, Shemot 31:10


+ 156 The anointing oil and the incense for the Holy; in complete accordance with everything I have commanded you they shall do. Shemot 31:11


+ 168 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 31:12


+ 196 And you, speak to the children of Israel and say: Only keep My Sabbaths! For it is a sign between Me and you for your generations, to know that I, the Lord, make you holy. Shemot 31:13


+ 177 Therefore, keep the Sabbath, for it is a sacred thing for you. Those who desecrate it shall be put to death, for whoever performs work on it, that soul will be cut off from the midst of its people. Shemot 31:14


+ 206 Six days work may be done, but on the seventh day is a Sabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord; whoever performs work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death. Shemot 31:15


+ 136 Thus shall the children of Israel observe the Sabbath, to make the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. Shemot 31:16


+ 192 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


+ 192 When He had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Moses the two tablets of the testimony, stone tablets, written with the finger of God. Shemot 31:18


+ 217 When the people saw that Moses was late in coming down from the mountain, the people gathered against Aaron, and they said to him: Come on! Make us gods that will go before us, because this man Moses, who brought us up from the land of Egypt we don't know what has become of him. Shemot 32:1


+ 159 Aaron said to them, Remove the golden earrings that are on the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters and bring them those earrings to me. Shemot 32:2


+ 175 And all the people stripped themselves of the golden earrings that were on their ears and brought them to Aaron. Shemot 32:3


+ 223 He took them from their hands, fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made it into a molten calf, upon which they said: These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you up from the land of Egypt! Shemot 32:4


+ 156 When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of it, and Aaron proclaimed and said: Tomorrow shall be a festival to the Lord. Shemot 32:5


+ 167 On the next day they arose early, offered up burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings, and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and they got up to make merry. Shemot 32:6


+ 186 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


+ 213 They have quickly turned away from the path that I have commanded them; they have made themselves a molten calf! And they have prostrated themselves before it, slaughtered sacrifices to it, and said: These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you up from the land of Egypt. Shemot 32:8


+ 189 And the Lord said to Moses: I have seen this people and behold! they are a stiff necked people. Shemot 32:9


+ 173 Now leave Me alone, and My anger will be kindled against them so that I will annihilate them, and I will make you into a great nation. Shemot 32:10


+ 234 Moses pleaded before the Lord, his God, and said: Why, O Lord, should Your anger be kindled against Your people whom You have brought up from the land of Egypt with great power and with a strong hand? Shemot 32:11


+ 190 Why should the Egyptians say: He brought them out with evil intent to kill them in the mountains and to annihilate them from upon the face of the earth? Retreat from the heat of Your anger and reconsider the evil intended for Your people. Shemot 32:12


+ 223 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your very Self, and to whom You said: I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and all this land which I said that I would give to your seed, they shall keep it as their possession forever. Shemot 32:13


+ 153 The Lord then reconsidered the evil He had said He would do to His people. Shemot 32:14


+ 226 Now Moses turned and went down from the mountain bearing the two tablets of the testimony in his hand, tablets inscribed from both their sides; on one side and on the other side they were inscribed. Shemot 32:15


+ 151 Now the tablets were God's work, and the inscription was God's inscription, engraved on the tablets. Shemot 32:16


+ 165 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


+ 200 But Moses said: It is neither a voice shouting victory, nor a voice shouting defeat; a voice of blasphemy I hear. Shemot 32:18


+ 207 Now it came to pass when he drew closer to the camp and saw the calf and the dances, that Moses anger was kindled, and he flung the tablets from his hands, shattering them at the foot of the mountain. Shemot 32:19


+ 228 Then he took the calf they had made, burned it in fire, ground it to fine powder, scattered it upon the surface of the water, and gave it to the children of Israel to drink. Shemot 32:20


+ 207 Moses said to Aaron: What did this people do to you that you brought such a grave sin upon them? Shemot 32:21


+ 162 Aaron replied: Let not my lord's anger grow hot! You know the people, that they are disposed toward evil. Shemot 32:22


+ 170 They said to me, Make us gods who will go before us, because this man Moses, who brought us up from the land of Egypt we do not know what has become of him. Shemot 32:23


+ 170 I said to them, Who has gold? So they took it the gold off and gave it to me; I threw it into the fire and out came this calf. Shemot 32:24


+ 197 And Moses saw the people, that they were exposed, for Aaron had exposed them to be disgraced before their adversaries. Shemot 32:25


+ 187 So Moses stood in the gate of the camp and said: Whoever is for the Lord, let him come to me! And all the sons of Levi gathered around him. Shemot 32:26


+ 202 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


+ 229 The sons of Levi did according to Moses word; on that day some three thousand men fell from among the people. Shemot 32:28


+ 208 And Moses said: Initiate yourselves today for the Lord for each man with his son and with his brother so that He may bestow a blessing upon you this day. Shemot 32:29


+ 197 It came to pass on the next day that Moses said to the people: You have committed a grave sin. And now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I will obtain atonement for your sin. Shemot 32:30


+ 231 And Moses returned to the Lord and said: Please! This people has committed a grave sin. They have made themselves a god of gold. Shemot 32:31


+ 165 And now, if You forgive their sin But if not, erase me now from Your book, which You have written. Shemot 32:32


+ 171 And the Lord said to Moses: Whoever has sinned against Me, him I will erase from My book! Shemot 32:33


+ 175 And now go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. Behold My angel will go before you. But on the day I make an accounting of sins upon them, I will bring their sin to account against them. Shemot 32:34


+ 158 Then the Lord struck the people with a plague, because they had made the calf that Aaron had made. Shemot 32:35


+ 208 The Lord spoke to Moses: Go, ascend from here, you and the people you have brought up from the land of Egypt, to the land that I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying: I will give it to your descendants. Shemot 33:1


+ 179 I will send an angel before you, and I will drive out the Canaanites, the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites. Shemot 33:2


+ 196 To a land flowing with milk and honey; because I will not go up in your midst since you are a stiff necked people, lest I destroy you on the way. Shemot 33:3


+ 138 When the people heard this bad news, they mourned, and no one put on his finery. Shemot 33:4


+ 238 And the Lord said to Moses: Say to the children of Israel: 'You are a stiff necked people; if I go up into your midst for one moment, I will destroy you; but now, leave off your finery, and I will know what to do to you. Shemot 33:5


+ 159 So the children of Israel divested themselves of their finery from Mount Horeb. Shemot 33:6


+ 207 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


+ 163 And it would be that when Moses would go out to the tent, all the people would rise and stand, each one at the entrance of his tent, and they would gaze after Moses until he went into the tent. Shemot 33:8


+ 155 And it would be that when Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the entrance of the tent, and He would speak with Moses. Shemot 33:9


+ 141 When all the people would see the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance of the tent, all the people would rise and prostrate themselves, each one at the entrance of his tent. Shemot 33:10


+ 209 Then the Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as a man would speak to his companion, and he would return to the camp, but his attendant, Joshua, the son of Nun, a lad, would not depart from the tent. Shemot 33:11


+ 216 Moses said to the Lord: Look, You say to me: Bring this people up! But You have not informed me whom You will send with me. And You said: I have known you by name and you have also found favor in My eyes. Shemot 33:12


+ 196 And now, if I have indeed found favor in Your eyes, pray let me know Your ways, so that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your eyes; and consider that this nation is Your people. Shemot 33:13


+ 130 So He said, My Presence will go, and I will give you rest. Shemot 33:14


+ 145 And he said to Him, If Your Presence does not go with us, do not take us up from here. Shemot 33:15


+ 198 For how then will it be known that I have found favor in Your eyes, I and Your people? Is it not in that You will go with us? Then I and Your people will be distinguished from every other nation on the face of the earth. Shemot 33:16


+ 181 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


+ 128 And he said: Show me, now, Your glory! Shemot 33:18


+ 176 He said: I will let all My goodness pass before you; I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you, and I will favor when I wish to favor, and I will have compassion when I wish to have compassion. Shemot 33:19


+ 171 And He said, You will not be able to see My face, for man shall not see Me and live. Shemot 33:20


+ 150 And the Lord said: Behold, there is a place with Me, and you shall stand on the rock. Shemot 33:21


+ 175 And it shall be that when My glory passes by, I will place you into the cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Shemot 33:22


+ 171 Then I will remove My hand, and you will see My back but My face shall not be seen. Shemot 33:23


+ 209 And the Lord said to Moses: Hew for yourself two stone tablets like the first ones. And I will inscribe upon the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. Shemot 34:1


+ 163 Be prepared for the morning, and in the morning you shall ascend Mount Sinai and stand before Me there on the top of the mountain. Shemot 34:2


+ 156 No one shall ascend with you, neither shall anyone be seen anywhere on the mountain, neither shall the sheep and the cattle graze facing that mountain. Shemot 34:3


+ 223 So Moses hewed two stone tablets like the first ones, and Moses arose early in the morning and ascended Mount Sinai as the Lord had commanded him, and he took two stone tablets in his hand. Shemot 34:4


+ 153 And the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and He called out in the name of the Lord. Shemot 34:5


+ 173 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed: Lord, Lord, benevolent God, Who is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness and truth, Shemot 34:6


+ 228 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


+ 155 And Moses hastened, bowed his head to the ground and prostrated himself, Shemot 34:8


+ 175 And said: If I have now found favor in Your eyes, O Lord, let the Lord go now in our midst even if they are a stiff necked people, and You shall forgive our iniquity and our sin and thus secure us as Your possession. Shemot 34:9


+ 232 And He said: Behold! I will form a covenant; in the presence of all your people, I will make distinctions such as have not been created upon all the earth and among all the nations, and all the people in whose midst you are shall see the work of the Lord how awe inspiring it is that which I will perform with you. Shemot 34:10


+ 199 Keep carefully what I am commanding you today: Lo! I will drive out from before you the Amorites and the Canaanites, the Hittites and the Perizzites, the Hivvites and the Jebusites. Shemot 34:11


+ 183 Beware lest you form a covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are coming, lest it become a snare in your midst. Shemot 34:12


+ 152 But you shall demolish their altars, shatter their monuments, and cut down their sacred trees. Shemot 34:13


+ 170 For you shall not prostrate yourself before another god, because the Lord, Whose Name is Jealous One, is a jealous God. Shemot 34:14


+ 167 Lest you form a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go astray after their gods, and they offer sacrifices to their gods, and they invite you, and you eat of their slaughtering, Shemot 34:15


+ 174 And you take of their daughters for your sons; then their daughters will go astray after their gods and lead your sons astray after their gods. Shemot 34:16


+ 138 You shall not make molten gods for yourself. Shemot 34:17


+ 220 The Festival of Unleavened Cakes you shall keep; seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes which I have commanded you, at the appointed meeting time of the month of spring, for in the month of spring you went out of Egypt. Shemot 34:18


+ 184 All that opens the womb is Mine, and all your livestock that bears a male, by the emergence of ox or lamb. Shemot 34:19


+ 188 And a firstborn donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; if you do not redeem it, you shall decapitate it; every firstborn of your sons you shall redeem, and they shall not appear before Me empty handed. Shemot 34:20


+ 150 Six days you may work, and on the seventh day you shall rest; in plowing and in harvest you shall rest. Shemot 34:21


+ 173 And you shall make for yourself a Festival of Weeks, the first of the wheat harvest, and the festival of the ingathering, at the turn of the year. Shemot 34:22


+ 161 Three times during the year shall all your male appear directly before the Master, the Lord, the God of Israel. Shemot 34:23


+ 187 When I drive out nations from before you and I widen your border, no one will covet your land when you go up, to appear before the Lord, your God, three times each year. Shemot 34:24


+ 209 You shall not slaughter or sprinkle the blood of My sacrifice with leaven, and the offering of the Passover feast shall not remain overnight until the morning. Shemot 34:25


+ 180 The choicest of the first of your soil you shall bring to the house of the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Shemot 34:26


+ 209 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


+ 197 He was there with the Lord for forty days and forty nights; he ate no bread and drank no water, and He inscribed upon the tablets the words of the Covenant, the Ten Commandments. Shemot 34:28


+ 193 And it came to pass when Moses descended from Mount Sinai, and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses' hand when he descended from the mountain and Moses did not know that the skin of his face had become radiant while He had spoken with him. Shemot 34:29


+ 197 That Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses and behold! the skin of his face had become radiant, and they were afraid to come near him. Shemot 34:30


+ 158 But Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the princes of the community returned to him, and Moses would speak to them. Shemot 34:31


+ 182 Afterwards all the children of Israel would draw near, and he would command them everything that the Lord had spoken with him on Mount Sinai. Shemot 34:32


+ 162 When Moses had finished speaking with them, he placed a covering over his face. Shemot 34:33


+ 203 When Moses would come before the Lord to speak with Him, he would remove the covering until he left; then he would leave and speak to the children of Israel what he would be commanded. Shemot 34:34


+ 194 Then the children of Israel would see Moses face, that the skin of Moses face had become radiant, and then Moses would replace the covering over his face until he would come again to speak with Him. Shemot 34:35


+ 213 Moses called the whole community of the children of Israel to assemble, and he said to them: These are the things that the Lord commanded to make. Shemot 35:1


+ 168 Six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have sanctity, a day of complete rest to the Lord; whoever performs work thereon on this day shall be put to death. Shemot 35:2


+ 156 You shall not kindle fire in any of your dwelling places on the Sabbath day. Shemot 35:3


+ 165 And Moses spoke to the entire community of the children of Israel, saying: This is the word that the Lord has commanded to say: Shemot 35:4


+ 192 Take from yourselves an offering for the Lord; every generous hearted person shall bring it, namely the Lord's offering: gold, silver, and copper; Shemot 35:5


+ 114 And blue, purple, and crimson wool; and linen and goat hair; Shemot 35:6


+ 146 And ram skins dyed red, tachash skins, and acacia wood; Shemot 35:7


+ 142 And oil for lighting, and spices for the anointing oil and for the incense; Shemot 35:8


+ 135 And shoham stones and filling stones for the ephod and for the choshen. Shemot 35:9


+ 151 And every wise hearted person among you shall come and make everything that the Lord has commanded: Shemot 35:10


+ 145 The Mishkan, its tent and its cover, its clasps and its planks, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets; Shemot 35:11


+ 140 The ark and its poles, the ark cover and the screening dividing curtain; Shemot 35:12


+ 148 The table and its poles and all its implements, and the showbread; Shemot 35:13


+ 164 And the menorah for lighting and its implements and its lamps, and the oil for lighting; Shemot 35:14


+ 146 And the altar for incense and its poles, and the anointing oil and the incense and the screen of the entrance for the entrance of the Mishkan; Shemot 35:15


+ 153 The altar for the burnt offering, its copper grating, its poles and all its implements, the washstand and its base; Shemot 35:16


+ 173 The hangings of the courtyard, its pillars, and its sockets, and the screen of the gate of the courtyard; Shemot 35:17


+ 134 The pegs of the Mishkan and the pegs of the courtyard, and their ropes; Shemot 35:18


+ 151 The meshwork garments to serve in the Holy, the holy garments for Aaron the Kohen Gadol, and the garments of his sons in which to serve as kohanim. Shemot 35:19


+ 171 The entire community departed from before Moses. Shemot 35:20


+ 189 Every man whose heart uplifted him came, and everyone whose spirit inspired him to generosity brought the offering of the Lord for the work of the Tent of Meeting, for all its service, and for the holy garments. Shemot 35:21


+ 202 The men came with the women; every generous hearted person brought bracelets and earrings and rings and buckles, all kinds of golden objects, and every man who waved a waving of gold to the Lord. Shemot 35:22


+ 170 Bezalel and Oholiab and every wise hearted man into whom God had imbued wisdom and insight to know how to do, shall do all the work of the service of the Holy, according to all that the Lord has commanded. Shemot 36:1


+ 224 And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every wise hearted man into whose heart the Lord had given wisdom, everyone whose heart lifted him up to approach the work to do it. Shemot 36:2


+ 194 So they took from before Moses all the offerings that the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the Holy, and they brought him more gifts every morning. Shemot 36:3


+ 141 Then all the wise men who were doing the work of the Holy came, each one from his work, which they had been doing. Shemot 36:4


+ 211 And they spoke to Moses, saying: The people are bringing very much, more than is enough for the labor of the articles which the Lord had commanded to do. Shemot 36:5


+ 168 So Moses commanded, and they announced in the camp, saying: Let no man or woman do any more work for the offering for the Holy. So the people stopped bringing. Shemot 36:6


+ 152 And the work was sufficient for them for all the work, to do it and to leave over. Shemot 36:7


+ 190 Then all the wise hearted people of the performers of the work made the Mishkan out of ten curtains consisting of twisted fine linen, and blue, purple, and crimson wool. A cherubim design, the work of a master weaver he made them. Shemot 36:8


+ 164 The length of one curtain was twenty eight cubits, and the width of one curtain was four cubits the same measure for all the curtains. Shemot 36:9


+ 132 And he joined five of these curtains to one another, and the other five curtains he also joined to one another. Shemot 36:10


+ 165 And he made loops of blue wool on the edge of one curtain that is at the edge of the first set, and he did the same on the edge of the outermost curtain of the second set. Shemot 36:11


+ 173 He made fifty loops on the edge of one curtain, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain in the second set; the loops corresponded to one another. Shemot 36:12


+ 165 And he made fifty golden clasps, and he fastened the curtains to one another with the clasps; so the Mishkan became one. Shemot 36:13


+ 148 And then he made curtains of goat hair for a tent over the Mishkan; he made them eleven curtains. Shemot 36:14


+ 151 The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and the width of one curtain was four cubits; the same measure for the eleven curtains. Shemot 36:15


+ 152 And he joined the five curtains by themselves, and the other six curtains by themselves. Shemot 36:16


+ 143 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

+ 150 Ten cubits was the length of each plank, and a cubit and a half was the width of each plank. Shemot 36:21


+ 171 Each plank had two square pegs, rung like, one even with the other; so did he make for all the planks of the Mishkan. Shemot 36:22


+ 141 And he made the planks for the Mishkan, twenty planks for the southern side. Shemot 36:23


+ 167 And he made forty silver sockets under the twenty planks; two sockets under one plank for its two square pegs, and two sockets under one plank for its two square pegs. Shemot 36:24

+ 138 And he made its horns on its four corners; its horns were all one piece from it, and he overlaid it with copper. Shemot 38:2


+ 154 And he made all the implements of the altar, the pots, and the shovels and the sprinkling basins and the flesh hooks and the fire pans; he made all its implements of copper. Shemot 38:3


+ 155 And he made for the altar a copper grating of netting work, beneath its ledge from below, until its middle. Shemot 38:4


+ 154 And he cast four rings on the four ends of the copper grating, holders for the poles. Shemot 38:5

+ 172 And he made the washstand of copper and its base of copper from the mirrors of the women who had set up the legions, who congregated at the entrance of the tent of meeting. Shemot 38:8


+ 143 And he made the courtyard on the southern side there were hangings for the courtyard of twisted fine linen, one hundred cubits. Shemot 38:9

+ 157 And their pillars were four and their sockets four, of copper, their hooks silver, and the overlay of their tops and their bands were silver. Shemot 38:19


+ 155 And all the pegs of the Mishkan and of the courtyard all around were copper. Shemot 38:20


+ 191 These are the numbers of the Mishkan, the Mishkan of the Testimony, which were counted at Moses' command; this was the work of the Levites under the direction of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the Kohen. Shemot 38:21


+ 160 Bezalel, son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, had made all that the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 38:22


+ 162 With him was Oholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, a craftsman and master weaver, and an embroiderer in blue, purple, and crimson wool and in linen. Shemot 38:23


+ 173 All the gold that had been used for the work in all the work of the Holy the gold of the waving was twenty nine talents, seven hundred and thirty shekels, according to the holy shekel. Shemot 38:24


+ 161 The silver of the community numbers was one hundred talents and one thousand seven hundred and seventy five shekels, according to the holy shekel. Shemot 38:25


+ 160 One bekka per head; that is, half a shekel according to the holy shekel for each one who goes through the counting, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred three thousand, five hundred and fifty people. Shemot 38:26


+ 157 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


+ 150 And out of the one thousand seven hundred and seventy five shekels he made hooks for the pillars, and he covered their tops and banded them. Shemot 38:29


+ 146 The copper of the waving was seventy talents and two thousand four hundred shekels. Shemot 38:29


+ 134 From that he made the sockets of the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, the copper altar, the copper grating upon it, and all the implements of the altar, Shemot 38:30


+ 144 And the sockets of the courtyard all around and the sockets of the gate to the courtyard, all the pegs of the Mishkan and all the pegs of the courtyard all around. Shemot 38:31


+ 172 And out of the blue, purple, and crimson wool they made the meshwork garments to serve in the Holy, and they made Aaron's holy garments, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:1


+ 138 And he made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen. Shemot 39:2


+ 164 And he made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen. Shemot 39:3


+ 142 They made connecting shoulder straps for it at both its ends, it was entirely connected. Shemot 39:4


+ 189 And its decorative band, which is above it, emanated from it, of the same work: gold, blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:5


+ 191 And they prepared the shoham stones, enclosed in gold settings, engraved similar to the engravings of a seal, with the names of the sons of Israel. Shemot 39:6


+ 182 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


+ 164 He made the choshen, the work of a master weaver like the work of the ephod, of gold, blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen. Shemot 39:8


+ 138 It was square and they made the choshen doubled its length one span and its width one span, doubled. Shemot 39:9


+ 146 And they filled into it four rows of stones. One row: odem, pitdah, and bareketh, the one row. Shemot 39:10


+ 131 And the second row: nofech, sappir, and yahalom. Shemot 39:11


+ 132 And the third row: leshem, shevo, and achlamah. Shemot 39:12


+ 177 And the fourth row: tarshish, shoham, and yashpheh; enclosed in gold settings in their fillings. Shemot 39:13


+ 204 And the stones were for the names of the sons of Israel twelve, corresponding to their names; similar to the engravings of a seal, every one according to his name, for the twelve tribes. Shemot 39:14


+ 152 For the choshen they made chains at the edges, of cable work, of pure gold. Shemot 39:15


+ 155 They made two golden settings and two golden rings, and they placed the two rings on the two ends of the choshen. Shemot 39:16


+ 145 And they placed the two golden cables on the two rings, at the ends of the choshen. Shemot 39:17


+ 164 And the two ends of the two cables they placed upon the two settings, and they placed them upon the shoulder straps of the ephod, on its front part. Shemot 39:18


+ 148 And they made two golden rings and placed them on the two ends of the choshen, on its edge that faced the inner side of the ephod. Shemot 39:19


+ 187 And they made two golden rings and placed them on the two shoulder straps of the ephod, from below, toward its front, adjacent to its seam, above the band of the ephod. Shemot 39:20


+ 168 And they fastened the choshen by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a cord of blue wool, so that it could be upon the band of the ephod, so that the choshen would not move off the ephod, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:21


+ 145 And he made the robe of the ephod, the work of a weaver, completely of blue wool. Shemot 39:22


+ 173 And the opening of the robe was turned inward like the opening of a coat of armor; its opening had a border around it so that it should not be torn. Shemot 39:23


+ 151 And they made on the bottom hem of the robe pomegranates of blue, purple, and crimson wool, twisted. Shemot 39:24


+ 152 And they made bells of pure gold, and they placed the bells in the midst of the pomegranates all around on the bottom hem of the robe, in the midst of the pomegranates. Shemot 39:25


+ 154 A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, all around on the bottom hem of the robe, to serve as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:26


+ 148 And they made the linen tunics, the work of a weaver, for Aaron and for his sons, Shemot 39:27


+ 140 And the cap of linen, and the glorious high hats of linen, and the linen pants of twisted fine linen, Shemot 39:28


+ 175 And the sash of twisted fine linen, and blue, purple, and crimson wool, of embroidery work as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:29


+ 180 And they made the showplate, the holy crown, of pure gold, and they inscribed upon it an inscription like the engravings of a seal: "Holy to the Lord." Shemot 39:30


+ 164 And they placed upon it a cord of blue wool to place over the cap, from above as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:31


+ 203 All the work of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting was completed; the children of Israel had done it; according to all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so they had done. Shemot 39:32


+ 168 Now they brought the Mishkan to Moses, the tent and all its furnishings its clasps, its planks, its bars, its pillars and its sockets, Shemot 39:33


+ 132 The covering of rams' skins dyed red, the covering of tachash skins, and the screening dividing curtain, Shemot 39:34


+ 141 The Ark of the Testimony and its poles and the ark cover, Shemot 39:35


+ 140 The table, all its implements and the showbread, Shemot 39:36


+ 142 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


+ 160 The golden altar, the anointing oil and the incense, and the screen of the entrance to the tent, Shemot 39:38


+ 143 The copper altar and its copper grating, its poles and all its implements, the washstand and its base, Shemot 39:39


+ 175 The hangings of the courtyard, its pillars and its sockets, and the screen for the gate of the courtyard, its ropes and its pegs, and all the implements for the service of the Mishkan, of the Tent of Meeting, Shemot 39:40


+ 152 The meshwork garments for the service in the Holy, the holy garments for Aaron the Kohen Gadol and his sons garments for serving as kohanim. Shemot 39:41


+ 178 In accordance with all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel do all the work. Shemot 39:42


+ 140 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 40:1


+ 136 On the day of the first month, on the first of the month, you shall set up the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 40:2


+ 145 There you shall place the Ark of the Testimony, and you shall spread the dividing curtain toward the ark. Shemot 40:3


+ 149 You shall bring in the table and set its arrangement; you shall bring in the menorah and kindle its lamps. Shemot 40:4


+ 153 You shall place the golden altar for incense before the Ark of the Testimony, and you shall place the screen of the entrance to the Mishkan. Shemot 40:5


+ 138 You shall place the altar of the burnt offering in front of the entrance of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 40:6


+ 138 You shall place the washstand between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and there you shall put water. Shemot 40:7


+ 141 And you shall set up the courtyard all around, and you shall put up the screen for the gate to the courtyard. Shemot 40:8


+ 150 You shall take the anointing oil and anoint the Mishkan and everything within it, and you shall sanctify it and all its furnishings; thus it will become a holy thing. Shemot 40:9


+ 139 You shall anoint the altar for the burnt offering and all its implements; you shall sanctify the altar; thus the altar will become a holy of holies. Shemot 40:10


+ 136 You shall anoint the washstand and its base and sanctify it. Shemot 40:11


+ 147 And you shall bring Aaron and his sons near the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and you shall bathe them in water. Shemot 40:12


+ 160 And you shall clothe Aaron with the holy garments, and you shall anoint him and sanctify him so that he may serve Me as a kohen. Shemot 40:13


+ 150 And you shall bring his sons near and clothe them with tunics. Shemot 40:14


+ 205 And you shall anoint them, as you have anointed their father, so that they may serve Me as kohanim. And this shall be so that their anointment shall remain for them an everlasting kehunah throughout their generations. Shemot 40:15


+ 156 Thus Moses did; according to all that the Lord had commanded him, so he did. Shemot 40:16


+ 146 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


+ 170 Moses set up the Mishkan, placed its sockets, put up its planks, put in its bars, and set up its pillars. Shemot 40:18


+ 174 He spread the tent over the Mishkan, and he placed the cover of the tent over it from above, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:19


+ 132 He took and placed the testimony into the ark, put the poles upon the ark, and placed the ark cover on the ark from above. Shemot 40:20


+ 191 He brought the ark into the Mishkan and placed the screening dividing curtain so that it formed a protective covering before the Ark of the Testimony as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:21


+ 145 He placed the table in the Tent of Meeting on the northern side of the Mishkan, outside the dividing curtain. Shemot 40:21


+ 168 He set upon it an arrangement of bread before the Lord as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:23


+ 223 He placed the menorah in the Tent of Meeting, opposite the table, on the southern side of the Mishkan. Shemot 40:24


+ 160 He kindled the lamps before the Lord as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:25


+ 140 He placed the golden altar in the Tent of Meeting in front of the dividing curtain. Shemot 40:26


+ 181 He made the incense go up in smoke upon it as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:27


+ 141 He placed the screen for the entrance of the Mishkan. Shemot 40:28


+ 170 The altar of the burnt offering he placed in front of the entrance of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting, and he offered up the burnt offering and the meal offering upon it as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:29


+ 154 He placed the washstand between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and there he put water for washing, Shemot 40:30


+ 157 And Moses, Aaron, and his sons would wash their hands and their feet from it. Shemot 40:31


+ 175 When they entered the Tent of Meeting and when they approached the altar they would wash as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:32


+ 183 He set up the courtyard all around the Mishkan and the altar, and he put up the screen at the entrance to the courtyard; and Moses completed the work. Shemot 40:33


+ 141 And the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the Mishkan. Shemot 40:34


+ 178 Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud rested upon it and the glory of the Lord filled the Mishkan. Shemot 40:35


+ 150 When the cloud rose up from over the Mishkan, the children of Israel set out in all their journeys. Shemot 40:36


+ 137 But if the cloud did not rise up, they did not set out until the day that it rose. Shemot 40:37


+ 230 For the cloud of the Lord was upon the Mishkan by day, and there was fire within it at night, before the eyes of the entire house of Israel in all their journeys. Shemot 40:38

+ 232 The Torah enumerates the 42 encampments in "the journeys of the Children of Israel who came out of Egypt."

+ 206 One Command

The essence of knowledge is that the totality of the Torah should cleave to our hearts so strongly and with such clear understanding that this totality will powerfully pour forth, resulting in a powerful, individual concern for every mitzvah and detail of the Torah. This will be like the powerful life-force that pours forth from the heart, spreading to every limb.

This is not the case when there is no true, all-encompassing knowledge. Then everything in the Torah is separate. This creates confusion in our basic understanding of the Torah. It prevents our service of love and generosity. Then the word of Hashem shall be for you a command and a command, a line and a line.

We must recognize the words of the Torah as one law and one command.

+ 173 Thank you for all the names May Hashem bless them all


+ 23 The preferred Shofar of Redemption is the Divine call that awakens and inspires the people with holy motivations, through faith in God and the unique mission of the people of Israel. This elevated awakening corresponds to the ram's horn, a horn that recalls Abraham's supreme love of God and dedication in Akeidat Yitzchak, the Binding of Isaac. It was the call of this shofar, with its holy vision of heavenly Jerusalem united with earthly Jerusalem, that inspired Nachmanides, Rabbi Yehuda HaLevy, Rabbi Ovadia of Bartenura, the students of the Vilna Gaon, and the disciples of the Baal Shem Tov to ascend to Eretz Yisrael. It is for this "great shofar," an awakening of spiritual greatness and idealism, that we fervently pray. There exists a second Shofar of Redemption, a less optimal form of awakening. This shofar calls out to the Jewish people to return to their homeland, to the land where our ancestors, our prophets and our kings, once lived. It beckons us to live as a free people, to raise our families in a Jewish country and a Jewish culture. This is a kosher shofar, albeit not a great shofar like the first type of awakening. We may still recite a blessing over this shofar. There is, however, a third type of shofar. The least desirable shofar comes from the horn of an unclean animal. This shofar corresponds to the wake-up call that comes from the persecutions of anti-Semitic nations, warning the Jews to escape while they still can and flee to their own land. Enemies force the Jewish people to be redeemed, blasting the trumpets of war, bombarding them with deafening threats of harassment and torment, giving them no respite. The shofar of unclean beasts is thus transformed into a Shofar of Redemption. Whoever failed to hear the calls of the first two shofars will be forced to listen to the call of this last shofar. Over this shofar, however, no blessing is recited. "One does not recite a blessing over a cup of affliction." 1933 Sermon: The Call of the Great Shofar. Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook


+ 22 Your fellow man is your mirror. If your own face is clean, the image you perceive will also be flawless. But should you look upon your fellow man and see a blemish, it is your own imperfection that you are encountering - you are being shown what it is that you must correct within yourself.
