PROVERBS: 5, 35, 65, 95, 125




1 For the leader.

On wind instruments.

A psalm of David:

Give ear to my words,

ADONAI, consider my inmost thoughts. 

2 Listen to my cry for help,

my king and my God, for I pray to you. 

3 ADONAI, in the morning you will hear my voice;

in the morning I lay my needs before you and wait expectantly. 

4 For you are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness;

evil cannot remain with you. 

5 Those who brag cannot stand before your eyes,

you hate all who do evil, 

6 you destroy those who tell lies,

ADONAI detests men of blood and deceivers. 

7 But I can enter your house because of your great grace and love;

I will bow down toward your holy temple in reverence for you. 

8 Lead me, ADONAI, in your righteousness

because of those lying in wait for me;

make your way straight before me. 

9 For in their mouths there is nothing sincere,

within them are calamities, their throats are open tombs,

they flatter with their tongues. 

10 God, declare them guilty!

Let them fall through their own intrigues,

For their many crimes, throw them down;

since they have rebelled against you.

11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice,

let them forever shout for joy!

Shelter them;

and they will be glad,

those who love your name.

12 For you, ADONAI, bless the righteous;

you surround them with favor like a shield.


1 By David: ADONAI, oppose those who oppose me;

fight against those who fight against me. 

2 Grasp your shield and protective gear,

and rise to my defense. 

3 Brandish spear and battle-axe against my pursuers;

let me hear you say, “I am your salvation.” 

4 May those who seek my life be disgraced and put to confusion;

may those who are plotting harm for me be repulsed and put to shame. 

5 May they be like chaff before the wind,

with the angel of ADONAI to drive them on. 

6 May their way be dark and slippery,

with the angel of ADONAI to pursue them. 

7 For unprovoked, they hid their net over a pit;

unprovoked, they dug it for me. 

8 May destruction come over him unawares.

May the net he concealed catch himself;

may he fall into it and be destroyed. 

9 Then I will be joyful in ADONAI,

I will rejoice in his salvation. 

10 All my bones will say, “Who is like you?

Who can rescue the weak from those stronger than they,

the poor and needy from those who exploit them?” 

11 Malicious witnesses come forward,

asking me things about which I know nothing. 

12 They repay me evil for good;

it makes me feel desolate as a parent bereaved. 

13 But I, when they were ill, wore sackcloth;

I put myself out and fasted;

I can pray that what I prayed for them might also happen to me. 

14 I behaved as I would for my friend or my brother;

I bent down in sorrow as if mourning my mother. 

15 But when I stumble, they gather in glee;

they gather against me and strike me unawares;

they tear me apart unceasingly. 

16 With ungodly mocking and grimacing,

they grind their teeth at me. 

17 Adonai, how much longer will you look on?

Rescue me from their assaults, save the one life I have from the lions! 

18 I will give you thanks in the great assembly,

I will give you praise among huge crowds of people.

19 Don’t let those who are wrongfully my enemies gloat over me;

and those who hate me unprovoked -don’t let them smirk at me. 

20 For they don’t speak words of peace but devise ways

to deceive the peaceful of the land. 

21 They shout to accuse me,

“Aha! Aha! we saw you with our own eyes!” 

22 You saw them, ADONAI;

don’t stay silent.

Adonai, don’t stay far away from me. 

23 Wake up! Get up, my God, my Lord!

Defend me and my cause! 

24 Give judgment for me, ADONAI, my God,

as your righteousness demands.

Don’t let them gloat over me. 

25 Don’t let them say to themselves,

“Aha! We got what we wanted!”

or say, “We swallowed them up!” 

26 May those who gloat over my distress be disgraced and humiliated.

May those who aggrandize themselves at my expense be covered

with shame and confusion. 

27  But may those who delight in my righteousness

shout for joy and be glad!

Let them say always, “How great is ADONAI,

who delights in the peace of his servant!

“Then my tongue will tell of your righteousness

and praise you all day long.


1 For the leader. A psalm of David.

A song: To you, God, in Tziyon, silence is praise;

and vows to you are to be fulfilled. 

2 You who listen to prayer,

to you all living creatures come. 

3 When deeds of wickedness overwhelm me,

you will atone for our crimes. 

4 How blessed are those you choose and bring near,

so that they can remain in your courtyards!

We will be satisfied with the goodness of your house,

the Holy Place of your temple. 

5 It is just that you answer us with awesome deeds,

God of our salvation, you in whom all put their trust,

to the ends of the earth and on distant seas. 

6 By your strength you set up the mountains.

You are clothed with power. 

7 You still the roaring of the seas,

their crashing waves, and the peoples’ turmoil. 

8 This is why those living at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your signs.

The places where the sun rises and sets you cause to sing for joy. 

9 You care for the earth and water it, you enrich it greatly;

with the river of God, full of water,

you provide them grain and prepare the ground. 

10 Soaking its furrows and settling its soil,

you soften it with showers and bless its growth. 

11 You crown the year with your goodness,

your tracks overflow with richness. 

12The desert pastures drip water,

the hills are wrapped with joy, 

13 the meadows are clothed with flocks and the valleys blanketed with grain,

so they shout for joy and break into song.


1 Come, let’s sing to ADONAI!

Let’s shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation! 

2 Let’s come into his presence with thanksgiving;

let’s shout for joy to him with songs of praise. 

3 For ADONAI is a great God,

a great king greater than all gods. 

4 He holds the depths of the earth in his hands;

the mountain peaks too belong to him. 

5 The sea is his – he made it -and

his hands shaped the dry land. 

6 Come, let’s bow down and worship;

let’s kneel before ADONAI who made us. 

7 For he is our God, and we are the people in his pasture, the sheep in his care.

If only today you would listen to his voice: 

8 “Don’t harden your hearts, as you did at M’rivah,

as you did on that day at Massah in the desert, 

9 when your fathers put me to the test;

they challenged me, even though they saw my work. 

10 For forty years I loathed that generation;

I said, ‘This is a people whose hearts go astray,

they don’t understand how I do things.’ 

11 Therefore I swore in my anger

that they would not enter my rest.”


1 A song of ascents:

Those who trust in ADONAI are like Mount Tziyon,

which cannot be moved but remains forever. 

2 Yerushalayim!

Mountains all around it!

Thus ADONAI is around his people henceforth and forever. 

3 For the scepter of wickedness will not rule the inheritance of the righteous,

so that the righteous will not themselves turn their hands to evil. 

4 Do good, ADONAI, to the good, to those upright in their hearts. 

5 But as for those who turn aside to their own crooked ways,

may ADONAI turn them away, along with those who do evil.

Shalom on Isra’el!


1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom;

incline your ear to my understanding; 

2 so that you will preserve discretion

and your lips keep watch over knowledge. 

3 For the lips of a woman who is a stranger drop honey,

her mouth is smoother than oil; 

4 but in the end she is as bitter as wormwood,

sharp as a double-edged sword.

5 Her feet go down to death, her steps lead straight to Sh’ol; 

6she doesn’t walk the level path of life -her course wanders all over,

but she doesn’t know it. 

7 So now, children, listen to me;

don’t turn away from what I am saying: 

8 distance your way from her,

stay far from the door of her house; 

9 so that you won’t give your vigor to others

and your years to someone who is cruel, 

10 so strangers won’t be filled with your strength

and what you worked for go to a foreign house. 

11 Then, when your flesh and bones have shrunk,

at the end of your life, you would moan, 

12 “How I hated discipline!

My whole being despised reproof, 

13 I ignored what my teachers said,

I didn’t listen to my instructors. 

14 I took part in almost every kind of evil,

and the whole community knew it.” 

15 Drink the water from your own cistern,

fresh water from your own well. 

16 Let what your springs produce be dispersed outside,

streams of water flowing in the streets; 

17 but let them be for you alone

and not for strangers with you. 

18 Let your fountain, the wife of your youth, be blessed;

find joy in her 

19 a lovely deer, a graceful fawn;

let her breasts satisfy you at all times,

always be infatuated with her love. 

20 My son, why be infatuated with an unknown woman?

Why embrace the body of a loose woman? 

21 For ADONAI is watching a man’s ways;

he surveys all his paths. 

22 A wicked person’s own crimes will trap him,

he will be held fast by the ropes of his sin. 

23 He will die from lack of discipline;

the magnitude of his folly will make him totter and fall.


48:1 Of Mo’av. Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Woe to Nevo! for it is laid waste; Kiryatayim is put to shame, it is taken; Misgav is put to shame and broken down. 2 The praise of Mo’av is no more; in Heshbon they have devised evil against her: Come, and let us cut her off from being a nation. You also, Madmen, shall be brought to silence: the sword shall pursue you. 3 The sound of a cry from Horonayim, desolation and great destruction! 4 Mo’av is destroyed; her little ones have caused a cry to be heard. 5 For by the ascent of Luchit with continual weeping shall they go up; for at the descent of Horonayim they have heard the distress of the cry of destruction. 6 Flee, save your lives, and be like the heath in the wilderness. 7 For, because you have trusted in your works and in your treasures, you also shall be taken: and Kemosh shall go forth into captivity, his Kohanim and his princes together. 8 The destroyer shall come on every city, and no city shall escape; the valley also shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed; as the LORD has spoken. 9 Give wings to Mo’av, that she may fly and get her away: and her cities shall become a desolation, without any to dwell therein. 10 Cursed be he who does the work of the LORD negligently; and cursed be he who keeps back his sword from blood. 11 Mo’av has been at ease from his youth, and he has settled on his lees, and has not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither has he gone into captivity: therefore his taste remains in him, and his scent is not changed. 12 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will send to him those who pour off, and they shall pour him off; and they shall empty his vessels, and break their bottles in pieces. 

13 Mo’av shall be ashamed of Kemosh, as the house of Yisra’el was ashamed of Beit-El their confidence. 14 How say you, We are mighty men, and valiant men for the war? 15 Mo’av is laid waste, and they are gone up into his cities, and his chosen young men are gone down to the slaughter, says the King, whose name is the LORD of Hosts. 16 The calamity of Mo’av is near to come, and his affliction hurries fast. 17 All you who are round about him, bemoan him, and all you who know his name; say, How is the strong staff broken, the beautiful rod! 18 You daughter who dwells in Divon, come down from your glory, and sit in thirst; for the destroyer of Mo’av is come up against you, he has destroyed your strongholds. 19 Inhabitant of `Aro`er, stand by the way, and watch: ask him who flees, and her who escapes; say, What has been done? 20 Mo’av is put to shame; for it is broken down: wail and cry; tell you it by the Arnon, that Mo’av is laid waste. 21 Judgment is come on the plain country, on Holon, and on Yahtzah, and on Mefa`at, 22 and on Divon, and on Nevo, and on Beit-Divlatayim, 23 and on Kiryatayim, and on Beit-Gamul, and on Beit-Me`on, 24 and on Keriyot, and on Botzrah, and on all the cities of the land of Mo’av, far or near. 25 The horn of Mo’av is cut off, and his arm is broken, says the LORD. 26 Make you him drunken; for he magnified himself against the LORD: and Mo’av shall wallow in his vomit, and he also shall be in derision. 27 For wasn’t Yisra’el a derision to you? was he found among thieves? for as often as you speak of him, you wag the head. 28 You inhabitants of Mo’av, leave the cities, and dwell in the rock; and be like the dove that makes her nest over the mouth of the abyss. 29 We have heard of the pride of Mo’av, [that] he is very proud; his loftiness, and his pride, and his arrogance, and the haughtiness of his heart. 30 I know his wrath, says the LORD, that it is nothing; his boastings have worked nothing. 31 Therefore will I wail for Mo’av; yes, I will cry out for all Mo’av: for the men of Kir-Heres shall they mourn. 32 With more than the weeping of Ya`zer will I weep for you, vine of Sivmah: your branches passed over the sea, they reached even to the sea of Ya`zer: on your summer fruits and on your vintage the destroyer is fallen. 33 Gladness and joy is taken away from the fruitful field and from the land of Mo’av; and I have caused wine to cease from the wine presses: none shall tread with shouting; the shouting shall be no shouting. 34 From the cry of Heshbon even to El`aleh, even to Yahatz have they uttered their voice, from Tzo`ar even to Horonayim, to `Eglat, Shelishiyah: for the waters of Nimrim also shall become desolate. 35 Moreover I will cause to cease in Mo’av, says the LORD, him who offers in the high place, and him who burns incense to his gods. 36 Therefore my heart sounds for Mo’av like pipes, and my heart sounds like pipes for the men of Kir-Heres: therefore the abundance that he has gotten is perished. 37 For every head is bald, and every beard clipped: on all the hands are cuttings, and on the loins sackcloth. 38 On all the housetops of Mo’av and in the streets of it there is lamentation every where; for I have broken Mo’av like a vessel in which none delights, says the LORD. 39 How is it broken down! [how] do they wail! how has Mo’av turned the back with shame! so shall Mo’av become a derision and a terror to all who are round about him. 40 For thus says the LORD: Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread out his wings against Mo’av. 41 Keriyot is taken, and the strongholds are seized, and the heart of the mighty men of Mo’av at that day shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs. 42 Mo’av shall be destroyed from being a people, because he has magnified himself against the LORD. 43 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are on you, inhabitant of Mo’av, says the LORD. 44 He who flees from the fear shall fall into the pit; and he who gets up out of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for I will bring on him, even on Mo’av, the year of their visitation, says the LORD. 45 Those who fled stand without strength under the shadow of Heshbon; for a fire is gone forth out of Heshbon, and a flame from the midst of Sichon, and has devoured the corner of Mo’av, and the crown of the head of the tumultuous ones. 46Woe to you, O Mo’av! the people of Kemosh is undone; for your sons are taken away captive, and your daughters into captivity. 47 Yet will I bring back the captivity of Mo’av in the latter days, says the LORD. Thus far is the judgment of Mo’av.

49:1 Of the children of `Ammon. Thus says the LORD: Has Yisra’el no sons? has he no heir? why then does Malkam possess Gad, and his people well in the cities of it? 2 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will cause an alarm of war to be heard against Rabbah of the children of `Ammon; and it shall become a desolate heap, and her daughters shall be burned with fire: then shall Yisra’el possess those who did possess him, says the LORD. 3 Wail, Heshbon, for `Ai is laid waste; cry, you daughters of Rabbah, gird you with sackcloth: lament, and run back and forth among the fences; for Malkam shall go into captivity, his Kohanim and his princes together. 4 Why glory you in the valleys, your flowing valley, backsliding daughter? who trusted in her treasures, [saying], Who shall come to me? 5 Behold, I will bring a fear on you, says the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, from all who are round about you; and you shall be driven out every man right forth, and there shall be none to gather together the fugitives. 6 But afterward I will bring back the captivity of the children of `Ammon, says the LORD. 7 Of Edom. Thus says the LORD of Hosts: Is wisdom no more in Teman? is counsel perished from the prudent? is their wisdom vanished? 8 Flee you, turn back, dwell in the depths, inhabitants of Dedan; for I will bring the calamity of Esav on him, the time that I shall visit him. 9 If grape-gatherers came to you, would they not leave some gleaning grapes? if thieves by night, wouldn’t they destroy until they had enough? 10 But I have made Esav bare, I have uncovered his secret places, and he shall not be able to hide himself: his seed is destroyed, and his brothers, and his neighbors; and he is no more. 11 Leave your fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; and let your widows trust in me. 12 For thus says the LORD: Behold, they to whom it didn’t pertain to drink of the cup shall assuredly drink; and are you he who shall altogether go unpunished? you shall not go unpunished, but you shall surely drink. 13 For I have sworn by myself, says the LORD, that Botzrah shall become an astonishment, a reproach, a waste, and a curse; and all the cities of it shall be perpetual wastes. 14 I have heard news from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the nations, [saying], Gather yourselves together, and come against her, and rise up to the battle. 15 For, behold, I have made you small among the nations, and despised among men. 16 As for your terror, the pride of your heart has deceived you, O you who dwell in the clefts of the rock, who hold the height of the hill: though you should make your nest as high as the eagle, I will bring you down from there, says the LORD. 17 Edom shall become an astonishment: everyone who passes by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss at all the plagues of it. 18 As in the overthrow of Sedom and `Amorah and the neighbor cities of it, says the LORD, no man shall dwell there, neither shall any son of man sojourn therein. 19 Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the pride of the Yarden against the strong habitation: for I will suddenly make them run away from it; and whoever is chosen, him will I appoint over it: for who is like me? and who will appoint me a time? and who is the shepherd who will stand before me? 20 Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD, that he has taken against Edom; and his purposes, that he has purposed against the inhabitants of Teman: Surely they shall drag them away, [even] the little ones of the flock; surely he shall make their habitation desolate over them. 21 The eretz trembles at the noise of their fall; there is a cry, the noise whereof is heard in the Sea of Suf. 

22 Behold, he shall come up and fly as the eagle, and spread out his wings against Botzrah: and the heart of the mighty men of Edom at that day shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.


4:1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: 

2 preach the word; be urgent in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with all patience and teaching.

3 For the time will come when they will not listen to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves teachers after their own lusts; 

4 and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside to fables. 

5 But you be sober in all things, suffer hardship, do the work of an evangelist, and fulfill your ministry.

6 For I am already being offered, and the time of my departure has come. 

7 I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith. 

8 From now on, there is stored up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me at that day; and not to me only, but also to all those who have loved his appearing. 

9 Be diligent to come to me soon, 

10 for Demas left me, having loved this present world, and went to Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia. 

11 Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with you, for he is useful to me for ministering. 

12 But I sent Tychicus to Ephesus. 

13 Bring the cloak that I left at Troas with Carpus, when you come, and the books, especially the parchments. 

14 Alexander, the coppersmith, did much evil to me. The Lord will repay him according to his works,

15 of whom you also must beware; for he greatly opposed our words. 

16 At my first defense, no one took my part, but all left me. May it not be held against them. 

17 But the Lord stood by me, and strengthened me, that through me the message might be fully proclaimed, and that all the Goyim might hear; and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. 

18 And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work, and will save me to his heavenly kingdom; to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amein. 

19 Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the house of Onesiphorus. 

20 Erastus remained at Corinth, but I left Trophimus at Miletus sick. 

21 Be diligent to come before winter. Eubulus salutes you, as do Pudens, Linus, Claudia, and all the brothers. 

22 The Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amein.

PSALMS: 4, 34, 64, 94, 124





1 For the leader.

With stringed instruments.

A psalm of David:

O God, my vindicator!

Answer me when I call!

When I was distressed, you set me free;

now have mercy on me, and hear my prayer. 

2 Men of rank, how long will you shame my honor,

love what is vain, chase after lies?


3 Understand that ADONAI sets apart the godly person for himself;

ADONAI will hear when I call to him. 

4 You can be angry, but do not sin!

Think about this as you lie in bed, and calm down.


5 Offer sacrifices rightly,

and put your trust in ADONAI. 

6 Many ask, “Who can show us some good?”

ADONAI, lift the light of your face over us! 

7 You have filled my heart with more joy

than all their grain and new wine. 

8 I will lie down and sleep in peace;

for, ADONAI, you alone make me live securely.


1 By David,

when he pretended to be insane before Avimelekh,

who then drove him away;

so he left:

I will bless ADONAI at all times;

his praise will always be in my mouth. 

2 When I boast, it will be about ADONAI;

the humble will hear of it and be glad. 

3 Proclaim with me the greatness of ADONAI;

let us exalt his name together. 

4 I sought ADONAI, and he answered me;

he rescued me from everything I feared. 

5 They looked to him and grew radiant;

their faces will never blush for shame. 

6 This poor man cried;

ADONAI heard and saved him from all his troubles. 

7 The angel of ADONAI,

who encamps around those who fear him, delivers them. 

8 Taste, and see that ADONAI is good.

How blessed are those who take refuge in him! 

9 Fear ADONAI, you holy ones of his,

for those who fear him lack nothing. 

10 Young lions can be needy, they can go hungry,

but those who seek ADONAI lack nothing good. 

11 Come, children, listen to me;

I will teach you the fear of ADONAI. 

12 Which of you takes pleasure in living?

Who wants a long life to see good things?

13 [If you do,] keep your tongue from evil

and your lips from deceiving talk; 

14 turn from evil, and do good;

seek peace, go after it! 

15 The eyes of ADONAI watch over the righteous,

and his ears are open to their cry. 

16 But the face of ADONAI opposes those who do evil,

to cut off all memory of them from the earth. 

17 [The righteous] cried out, and ADONAI heard,

and he saved them from all their troubles. 

18 ADONAI is near those with broken hearts;

he saves those whose spirit is crushed. 

19 The righteous person suffers many evils,

but ADONAI rescues him out of them all. 

20 He protects all his bones;

not one of them gets broken. 

21 Evil will kill the wicked, and those who

hate the righteous will be condemned.

22 But ADONAI redeems his servants;

no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.


1 For the leader.

A psalm of David:

Hear my voice, God, as I plead:

preserve my life from fear of the enemy. 

2 Hide me from the secret intrigues of the wicked

and the open insurrection of evildoers. 

3 They sharpen their tongues like a sword;

they aim their arrows, poisoned words, 

4 in order to shoot from cover at the innocent,

shooting suddenly and fearing nothing. 

5 They support each other’s evil plans;

they talk of hiding snares and ask, “Who would see them?”

6 They search for ways to commit crimes,

bringing their diligent search to completion when each

of them has thought it through in the depth of his heart. 

7  Suddenly God shoots them down with an arrow,

leaving them with wounds; 

8 their own tongues make them stumble.

All who see them shake their heads. 

9 Everyone is awestruck they acknowledge that it is God at work,

they understand what he has done. 

10 The righteous will rejoice in ADONAI;

they will take refuge in him;

all the upright in heart will exult.


1 God of vengeance, ADONAI!

God of vengeance, appear! 

2 Assert yourself as judge of the earth!

Pay back the proud as they deserve! 

3 How long are the wicked, ADONAI,

how long are the wicked to triumph? 

4 They pour out insolent words,

they go on bragging, all these evildoers. 

5 They crush your people, ADONAI,

they oppress your heritage. 

6 They kill widows and strangers

and murder the fatherless. 

7 They say, “Yah isn’t looking;

the God of Ya’akov won’t notice.” 

8 Take notice, yourselves, you boors among the people!

You fools, when will you understand? 

9 Will the one who planted the ear not hear?

Will the one who formed the eye not see?

10 Will the one who disciplines nations not correct them?

Will the teacher of humanity not know? 

11 ADONAI understands that people’s thoughts

are merely a puff of wind. 

12 How happy the man whom you correct, Yah,

whom you teach from your Torah, 

13 giving him respite from days of trouble,

till a pit is dug for the wicked! 

14 For ADONAI will not desert his people,

he will not abandon his heritage. 

15 Justice will once again become righteous,

and all the upright in heart will follow it. 

16 Who will champion my cause against the wicked?

Who will stand up for me against evildoers? 

17 If ADONAI hadn’t helped me,

I would soon have dwelt in the land of silence. 

18 When I said, “My foot is slipping!”

your grace, ADONAI, supported me. 

19 When my cares within me are many,

your comforts cheer me up. 

20 Can unjust judges be allied with you,

those producing wrong in the name of law? 

21 They band together against the righteous

and condemn the innocent to death. 

22 But ADONAI has become my stronghold,

my God is my rock of refuge.

23 But he repays them as their guilt deserves;

he will cut them off with their own evil;

ADONAI our God will cut them off.


1 A song of ascents.

By David:

If ADONAI hadn’t been for us -let Isra’el repeat it – 

2 If ADONAI hadn’t been for us

when people rose to attack us, 

3 then, when their anger blazed against us,

they would have swallowed us alive! 

4 Then the water would have engulfed us,

the torrent would have swept over us. 

5 Yes, the raging water would have swept right over us. 

6 Blessed be ADONAI,

who did not leave us to be a prey for their teeth! 

7 We escaped like a bird from the hunter’s trap;

the trap is broken, and we have escaped. 

8 Our help is in the name of ADONAI,

the maker of heaven and earth.


1 Listen, children, to a father’s instruction;

pay attention, in order to gain insight; 

2 for I am giving you good advice;

so don’t abandon my teaching. 

3 For I too was once a child to my father;

and my mother, too, thought of me as her special darling. 

4 He too taught me; he said to me,

“Let your heart treasure my words;

keep my commands, and live; 

5 gain wisdom, gain insight;

don’t forget or turn from the words I am saying. 

6 Don’t abandon [wisdom];

then she will preserve you;

love her, and she will protect you. 

7 The beginning of wisdom is: get wisdom!

And along with all your getting, get insight! 

8 Cherish her, and she will exalt you;

embrace her, and she will bring you honor; 

9 she will give your head a garland of grace,

bestow on you a crown of glory.” 

10 Listen, my son, receive what I say,

and the years of your life will be many. 

11 I’m directing you on the way of wisdom,

guiding you in paths of uprightness; 

12 when you walk, your step won’t be hindered;

and if you run, you won’t stumble. 

13 Hold fast to discipline, don’t let it go;

guard it, for it is your life. 

14 Don’t follow the path of the wicked

or walk on the way of evildoers.

15 Avoid it, don’t go on it,

turn away from it, and pass on. 

16 For they can’t sleep if they haven’t done evil,

they are robbed of sleep unless they make someone fall. 

17  For they eat the bread of wickedness

and drink the wine of violence. 

18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,

shining ever brighter until full daylight. 

19 The way of the wicked is like darkness;

they don’t even know what makes them stumble. 

20 My son, pay attention to what I am saying;

incline your ear to my words. 

21 Don’t let them out of your sight,

keep them deep in your heart; 

22 for they are life to those who find them

and health to their whole being. 

23 Above everything else, guard your heart;

for it is the source of life’s consequences. 

24 Keep crooked speech out of your mouth,

banish deceit from your lips. 

25 Let your eyes look straight ahead,

fix your gaze on what lies in front of you. 

26 Level the path for your feet,

let all your ways be properly prepared; 

27 then deviate neither right nor left;

and keep your foot far from evil.


44:24 Moreover Yirmeyahu said to all the people, and to all the women, Hear the word of the LORD, all Yehudah who are in the land of Mitzrayim: 25 Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el, saying, You and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and with your hands have fulfilled it, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of the sky, and to pour out drink-offerings to her: establish then your vows, and perform your vows. 26 Therefore hear the word of the LORD, all Yehudah who dwell in the land of Mitzrayim: Behold, I have sworn by my great name, says the LORD, that my name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Yehudah in all the land of Mitzrayim, saying, As the Lord GOD lives. 27 Behold, I watch over them for evil, and not for good; and all the men of Yehudah who are in the land of Mitzrayim shall be consumed by the sword and by the famine, until there be an end of them. 28 Those who escape the sword shall return out of the land of Mitzrayim into the land of Yehudah, few in number; and all the remnant of Yehudah, who have gone into the land of Mitzrayim to sojourn there, shall know whose word shall stand, mine, or theirs. 29 This shall be the sign to you, says the LORD, that I will punish you in this place, that you may know that my words shall surely stand against you for evil: 30 Thus says the LORD, Behold, I will give Par`oh Hofra king of Mitzrayim into the hand of his enemies, and into the hand of those who seek his life; as I gave Tzidkiyahu king of Yehudah into the hand of Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel, who was his enemy, and sought his life.

45:1 The word that Yirmeyahu the prophet spoke to Barukh the son of Neriyah, when he wrote these word in a book at the mouth of Yirmeyahu, in the fourth year of Yehoiakim the son of Yoshiyahu, king of Yehudah, saying, 2 Thus says the LORD, the God of Yisra’el, to you, Barukh: 3 You did say, Woe is me now! for the LORD has added sorrow to my pain; I am weary with my groaning, and I find no rest. 4 Thus shall you tell him, Thus says the LORD: Behold, that which I have built will I break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up; and this in the whole land. 5 Seek you great things for yourself? Don’t seek them; for, behold, I will bring evil on all flesh, says the LORD; but your life will I give to you for a prey in all places where you go.

46:1 The word of the LORD which came to Yirmeyahu the prophet concerning the nations. 2 Of Mitzrayim: concerning the army of Par`oh-Nekho king of Mitzrayim, which was by the river Perat in Karkemish, which Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel struck in the fourth year of Yehoiakim the son of Yoshiyahu, king of Yehudah. 3 Prepare you the buckler and shield, and draw near to battle. 4 Harness the horses, and get up, you horsemen, and stand forth with your helmets; furbish the spears, put on the coats of mail. 5 Why have I seen it? they are dismayed and are turned backward; and their mighty ones are beaten down, and have fled apace, and don’t look back: terror is on every side, says the LORD. 6 Don’t let the swift flee away, nor the mighty man escape; in the north by the river Perat have they stumbled and fallen. 7  Who is this who rises up like the Nile, whose waters toss themselves like the rivers? 8 Mitzrayim rises up like the Nile, and his waters toss themselves like the rivers: and he says, I will rise up, I will cover the eretz; I will destroy cities and the inhabitants of it. 9 Go up, you horses; and rage, you chariots; and let the mighty men go forth: Kush and Put, who handle the shield; and the Ludim, who handle and bend the bow. 10 For that day is [a day] of the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour and be satiate, and shall drink its fill of their blood; for the Lord, the LORD of hosts, has a sacrifice in the north country by the river Perat. 11 Go up into Gil`ad, and take balm, virgin daughter of Mitzrayim: in vain do you use many medicines; there is no healing for you. 12 The nations have heard of your shame, and the eretz is full of your cry; for the mighty man has stumbled against the mighty, they are fallen both of them together. 13 The word that the LORD spoke to Yirmeyahu the prophet, how that Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel should come and strike the land of Mitzrayim. 14 Declare you in Mitzrayim, and publish in Migdol, and publish in Mof and in Tachpanches: say you, Stand forth, and prepare you; for the sword has devoured round about you. 15 Why are your strong ones swept away? they didn’t stand, because the LORD did drive them. 16 He made many to stumble, yes, they fell one on another: and they said, Arise, and let us go again to our own people, and to the land of our birth, from the oppressing sword. 17  They cried there, Par`oh king of Mitzrayim is but a noise; he has let the appointed time pass by. 18 As I live, says the King, whose name is the LORD of Hosts, surely like Tavor among the mountains, and like Karmel by the sea, so shall he come. 19 You daughter who dwell in Mitzrayim, furnish yourself to go into captivity; for Mof shall become a desolation, and shall be burnt up, without inhabitant. 20 Mitzrayim is a very beautiful heifer; [but] destruction out of the north is come, it is come. 21 Also her hired men in the midst of her are like calves of the stall; for they also are turned back, they are fled away together, they didn’t stand: for the day of their calamity is come on them, the time of their visitation. 22 The sound of it shall go like the serpent; for they shall march with an army, and come against her with axes, as wood cutters. 23 They shall cut down her forest, says the LORD, though it can’t be searched; because they are more than the locusts, and are innumerable. 24 The daughter of Mitzrayim shall be put to shame; she shall be delivered into the hand of the people of the north. 25 The LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el, says: Behold, I will punish Amon of No, and Par`oh, and Mitzrayim, with her gods, and her kings; even Par`oh, and those who trust in him: 26 and I will deliver them into the hand of those who seek their lives, and into the hand of Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel, and into the hand of his servants; and afterwards it shall be inhabited, as in the days of old, says the LORD. 27 But don’t be afraid you, Ya`akov my servant, neither be dismayed, Yisra’el: for, behold, I will save you from afar, and your seed from the land of their captivity; and Ya`akov shall return, and shall be quiet and at ease, and none shall make him afraid. 28 Don’t be afraid you, O Ya`akov my servant, says the LORD; for I am with you: for I will make a full end of all the nations where I have driven you; but I will not make a full end of you, but I will correct you in measure, and will in no way leave you unpunished.

47:1 The word of the LORD that came to Yirmeyahu the prophet concerning the Pelishtim, before that Par`oh struck `Aza. 2 Thus says the LORD: Behold, waters rise up out of the north, and shall become an overflowing stream, and shall overflow the land and all that is therein, the city and those who dwell therein; and the men shall cry, and all the inhabitants of the land shall wail. 3 At the noise of the stamping of the hoofs of his strong ones, at the rushing of his chariots, at the rumbling of his wheels, the fathers don’t look back to their children for feebleness of hands; 4 because of the day that comes to destroy all the Pelishtim, to cut off from Tzor and Tzidon every helper who remains: for the LORD will destroy the Pelishtim, the remnant of the isle of Kaftor. 5 Baldness is come on `Aza; Ashkelon is brought to nothing, the remnant of their valley: how long will you cut yourself? 6 You sword of the LORD, how long will it be before you be quiet? put up yourself into your scabbard; rest, and be still. 7 How can you be quiet, seeing the LORD has given you a charge? Against Ashkelon, and against the sea-shore, there has he appointed it.


2:22 Flee from youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, and shalom with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 But refuse foolish and ignorant questionings, knowing that they generate strife. 24 The Lord’s servant must not quarrel, but be gentle towards all, able to teach, patient, 25 in gentleness correcting those who oppose him; if perhaps God may give them repentance to the knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may recover themselves out of the devil’s snare, having been taken captive by him to his will.

3:1 But know this, that in the last days, grievous times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; 5 holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof. Turn away from these, also. 6 For of these are those who creep into houses, and take captive gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Even as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moshe, so do these also oppose the truth; men corrupted in mind, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they will proceed no further. For their folly will be evident to all men, as theirs also came to be. 10 But you did follow my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, steadfastness, 11 persecutions, and sufferings; those things that happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; those persecutions that I endured. Out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Messiah Yeshua will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you remain in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them. 15 From infancy, you have known the sacred writings which are able to make you wise to salvation through faith, which is in Messiah Yeshua. 16 Every writing inspired by God is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction which is in righteousness, 17  that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

PSALMS: 3, 33, 63, 93, 123





1 A psalm of David,

when he fled from Avshalom his son:

ADONAI, how many enemies I have!

How countless are those attacking me; 

2 how countless those who say of me,

“There is no salvation for him in God.”


3 But you, ADONAI, are a shield for me;

you are my glory, you lift my head high. 

4 With my voice I call out to ADONAI,

and he answers me from his holy hill.


5 I lie down and sleep, then wake up again,

because ADONAI sustains me. 

6 I am not afraid of the tens of thousands

set against me on every side. 

7 Rise up, ADONAI!

Save me, my God!

For you slap all my enemies in the face,

you smash the teeth of the wicked. 

8 Victory comes from ADONAI;

may your blessing rest on your people.



1 Rejoice in ADONAI, you righteous!

Praise is well-suited to the upright. 

2 Give thanks to ADONAI with the lyre,

sing praises to him with a ten-stringed harp. 

3 Sing to him a new song,

make music at your best among shouts of joy. 

4 For the word of ADONAI is true,

and all his work is trustworthy. 

5 He loves righteousness and justice;

the earth is full of the grace of ADONAI. 

6 By the word of ADONAI the heavens were made,

and their whole host by a breath from his mouth. 

7 He collects the sea waters together in a heap;

he puts the deeps in storehouses. 

8 Let all the earth fear ADONAI!

Let all living in the world stand in awe of him. 

9 For he spoke, and there it was;

he commanded, and there it stood. 

10 ADONAI brings to nothing the plans of nations,

he foils the plans of the peoples. 

11 But the counsel of ADONAI stands forever,

his heart’s plans are for all generations. 

12 How blessed is the nation whose God is ADONAI,

the people he chose as his heritage! 

13 ADONAI looks out from heaven;

he sees every human being; 

14 from the place where he lives he

watches everyone living on earth, 

15 he who fashioned the hearts of them

all and understands all they do. 

16 A king is not saved by the size of his army,

a strong man not delivered by his great strength. 

17 To rely on a horse for safety is vain,

nor does its great power assure escape. 

18 But ADONAI’s eyes watch over those who fear him,

over those who wait for his grace 

19 to rescue them from death

and keep them alive in famine. 

20 We are waiting for ADONAI;

he is our help and shield. 

21 For in him our hearts rejoice,

because we trust in his holy name. 

22 May your mercy, ADONAI, be over us,

because we put our hope in you.


1 A psalm of David,

when he was in the desert of Y’hudah:

O God, you are my God;

I will seek you eagerly.

My heart thirsts for you,

my body longs for you in a land parched and exhausted,

where no water can be found. 

2 I used to contemplate you in the sanctuary,

seeing your power and glory; 

3 for your grace is better than life.

My lips will worship you. 

4 Yes, I will bless you as long as I live;

in your name I will lift up my hands. 

5 I am as satisfied as with rich food;

my mouth praises you with joy on my lips 

6 when I remember you on my bed

and meditate on you in the night watches. 

7 For you have been my help;

in the shadow of your wings I rejoice; 

8 my heart clings to you;

your right hand supports me. 

9 But those who seek to destroy my life -may

they go to the lowest parts of the earth. 

10 May they be given over to the power of the sword;

may they become prey for jackals. 

11 But the king will rejoice in God.

Everyone who swears by him will exult,

for the mouths of liars will be silenced.


1 ADONAI is king, robed in majesty;

ADONAI is robed, girded with strength;

The world is well established;

it cannot be moved. 

2 Your throne was established long ago;

you have existed forever. 

3 ADONAI, the deep is raising up, the deep is raising up

its voice, the deep is raising its crashing waves. 

4 More than the sound of rushing waters or the mighty breakers of the sea,

ADONAI on high is mighty.

5 Your instructions are very sure;

holiness befits your house,

ADONAI, for all time to come.


1 A song of ascents:

I raise my eyes to you, whose throne is in heaven. 

2 As a servant looks to the hand of his master,

or a slave-girl to the hand of her mistress,

so our eyes turn to ADONAI our God,

until he has mercy on us. 

3 Have mercy on us, ADONAI, have mercy;

for we have had our fill of contempt, 

4 more than our fill of scorn from the complacent

and contempt from the arrogant.


1 My son, don’t forget my teaching,

keep my commands in your heart; 

2 for they will add to you many days,

years of life and peace.

3 Do not let grace and truth leave you -bind them around your neck;

write them on the tablet of your heart. 

4 Then you will win favor and esteem

in the sight of God and of people. 

5 Trust in ADONAI with all your heart;

do not rely on your own understanding. 

6 In all your ways acknowledge him;

then he will level your paths. 

7 Don’t be conceited about your own wisdom;

but fear ADONAI, and turn from evil. 

8 This will bring health to your body

and give strength to your bones. 

9 Honor ADONAI with your wealth

and with the firstfruits of all your income. 

10 Then your granaries will be filled

and your vats overflow with new wine. 

11 My son, don’t despise ADONAI’s discipline

or resent his reproof; 

12 for ADONAI corrects those he loves

like a father who delights in his son. 

13 Happy the person who finds wisdom,

the person who acquires understanding; 

14 for her profit exceeds that of silver,

gaining her is better than gold, 

15 she is more precious than pearls -nothing

you want can compare with her.

16 Long life is in her right hand,

riches and honor in her left. 

17 Her ways are pleasant ways,

and all her paths are peace. 

18 She is a tree of life to those who grasp her;

whoever holds fast to her will be made happy. 

19 ADONAI by wisdom founded the earth,

by understanding he established the heavens, 

20 by his knowledge the deep [springs] burst open

and the dew condenses from the sky. 

21 My son, don’t let these slip from your sight;

preserve common sense and discretion; 

22 they will be life for your being

and grace for your neck. 

23 Then you will walk your way securely,

without hurting your foot. 

24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;

when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. 

25 Don’t be afraid of sudden terror or destruction caused by the wicked,

when it comes; 

26 for you can rely on ADONAI;

he will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.

27 Don’t withhold good from someone entitled to it when

you have in hand the power to do it. 

28 Don’t tell your neighbor, “Go away!

Come another time;

I’ll give it to you tomorrow,”

when you have it now.

29 Don’t plan harm against your neighbor who lives beside you trustingly. 

30 Don’t quarrel with someone for no reason, if he has done you no harm. 

31 Don’t envy a man of violence, don’t choose any of his ways; 

32 for the perverse is an abomination to ADONAI,

but he shares his secret counsel with the upright. 

33 ADONAI’s curse is in the house of the wicked,

but he blesses the home of the righteous. 

34 The scornful he scorns,

but gives grace to the humble.

35 The wise win honor,

but fools win shame.


42:1 Then all the captains of the forces, and Yochanan the son of Kareach, and Yezanyah the son of Hosha`yah, and all the people from the least even to the greatest, came near, 2 and said to Yirmeyahu the prophet, Let, we pray you, our supplication be presented before you, and pray for us to the LORD your God, even for all this remnant; for we are left but a few of many, as your eyes do see us: 3 that the LORD your God may show us the way in which we should walk, and the thing that we should do. 4 Then Yirmeyahu the prophet said to them, I have heard you; behold, I will pray to the LORD your God according to your words; and it shall happen that whatever thing the LORD shall answer you, I will declare it to you; I will keep nothing back from you. 5 Then they said to Yirmeyahu, the LORD be a true and faithful witness among us, if we don’t do according to all the word with which the LORD your God shall send you to us. 6 Whether it be good, or whether it be evil, we will obey the voice of the LORD our God, to whom we send you; that it may be well with us, when we obey the voice of the LORD our God. 7 It happened after ten days, that the word of the LORD came to Yirmeyahu. 8 Then called he Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, and all the people from the least even to the greatest, 9 and said to them, Thus says the LORD, the God of Yisra’el, to whom you sent me to present your supplication before him: 10 If you will still abide in this land, then will I build you, and not pull you down, and I will plant you, and not pluck you up; for I repent me of the evil that I have done to you. 11 Don’t be afraid of the king of Bavel, of whom you are afraid; don’t be afraid of him, says the LORD: for I am with you to save you, and to deliver you from his hand. 12 I will grant you mercy, that he may have mercy on you, and cause you to return to your own land. 13 But if you say, We will not dwell in this land; so that you don’t obey the voice of the LORD your God, 14 saying, No; but we will go into the land of Mitzrayim, where we shall see no war, nor hear the sound of the shofar, nor have hunger of bread; and there will we dwell: 15 now therefore hear you the word of the LORD, O remnant of Yehudah: Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el, If you indeed set your faces to enter into Mitzrayim, and go to sojourn there; 16 then it shall happen, that the sword, which you fear, shall overtake you there in the land of Mitzrayim; and the famine, whereof you are afraid, shall follow hard after you there in Mitzrayim; and there you shall die. 17 So shall it be with all the men who set their faces to go into Mitzrayim to sojourn there: they shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence; and none of them shall remain or escape from the evil that I will bring on them. 18 For thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: As my anger and my wrath has been poured forth on the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, so shall my wrath be poured forth on you, when you shall enter into Mitzrayim; and you shall be an object of horror, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach; and you shall see this place no more. 19 The LORD has spoken concerning you, remnant of Yehudah, Don’t you go into Mitzrayim: know certainly that I have testified to you this day. 20 For you have dealt deceitfully against your own souls; for you sent me to the LORD your God, saying, Pray for us to the LORD our God; and according to all that the LORD our God shall say, so declare to us, and we will do it: 21 and I have this day declared it to you; but you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD your God in anything for which he has sent me to you. 22 Now therefore know certainly that you shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, in the place where you desire to go to sojourn there.

43:1 It happened that, when Yirmeyahu had made an end of speaking to all the people all the words of the LORD their God, with which the LORD their God had sent him to them, even all these words, 2 then spoke `Azaryah the son of Hosha`yah, and Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the proud men, saying to Yirmeyahu, You speak falsely: the LORD our God has not sent you to say, You shall not go into Mitzrayim to sojourn there; 3 but Barukh the son of Neriyah sets you on against us, to deliver us into the hand of the Kasdim, that they may put us to death, and carry us away captive to Bavel. 4 So Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces, and all the people, didn’t obey the voice of the LORD, to dwell in the land of Yehudah. 5 But Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces, took all the remnant of Yehudah, who were returned from all the nations where they had been driven, to sojourn in the land of Yehudah; 6 the men, and the women, and the children, and the king’s daughters, and every person who Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard had left with Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, the son of Shafan; and Yirmeyahu the prophet, and Barukh the son of Neriyah; 7 and they came into the land of Mitzrayim; for they didn’t obey the voice of the LORD: and they came to Tachpanches. 8 Then came the word of the LORD to Yirmeyahu in Tachpanches, saying, 9 Take great stones in your hand, and hide them in mortar in the brick work, which is at the entry of Par`oh’s house in Tachpanches, in the sight of the men of Yehudah; 10 and tell them, Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Behold, I will send and take Nevukhadretztzar the king of Bavel, my servant, and will set his throne on these stones that I have hidden; and he shall spread his royal pavilion over them. 11 He shall come, and shall strike the land of Mitzrayim; such as are for death [shall be given] to death, and such as are for captivity to captivity, and such as are for the sword to the sword. 12 I will kindle a fire in the houses of the gods of Mitzrayim; and he shall burn them, and carry them away captive: and he shall array himself with the land of Mitzrayim, as a shepherd puts on his garment; and he shall go forth from there in shalom. 13 He shall also break the pillars of Beit-Shemesh, that is in the land of Mitzrayim; and the houses of the gods of Mitzrayim shall he burn with fire.

44:1 The word that came to Yirmeyahu concerning all the Yehudim who lived in the land of Mitzrayim, who lived at Migdol, and at Tachpanches, and at Mof, and in the country of Patros, saying, 2 Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: You have seen all the evil that I have brought on Yerushalayim, and on all the cities of Yehudah; and, behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwells therein, 3 because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke me to anger, in that they went to burn incense, [and] to serve other gods, that they didn’t know, neither they, nor you, nor your fathers. 4 However I sent to you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Oh, don’t do this abominable thing that I hate. 5 But they didn’t listen, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense to other gods. 6 Therefore my wrath and my anger was poured forth, and was kindled in the cities of Yehudah and in the streets of Yerushalayim; and they are wasted and desolate, as it is this day. 7 Therefore now thus says the LORD, the God Tzva’ot,, the God of Yisra’el: Why commit you [this] great evil against your own souls, to cut off from you man and woman, infant and suckling, out of the midst of Yehudah, to leave you none remaining; 8 in that you provoke me to anger with the works of your hands, burning incense to other gods in the land of Mitzrayim, where you are gone to sojourn; that you may be cut off, and that you may be a curse and a reproach among all the nations of the eretz? 9 Have you forgotten the wickedness of your fathers, and the wickedness of the kings of Yehudah, and the wickedness of their wives, and your own wickedness, and the wickedness of your wives which they committed in the land of Yehudah, and in the streets of Yerushalayim? 10 They are not humbled even to this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in my law, nor in my statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers. 11 Therefore thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Behold, I will set my face against you for evil, even to cut off all Yehudah. 12 I will take the remnant of Yehudah, that have set their faces to go into the land of Mitzrayim to sojourn there, and they shall all be consumed; in the land of Mitzrayim shall they fall; they shall be consumed by the sword and by the famine; they shall die, from the least even to the greatest, by the sword and by the famine; and they shall be an object of horror, [and] an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach. 13 For I will punish those who dwell in the land of Mitzrayim, as I have punished Yerushalayim, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence; 14 so that none of the remnant of Yehudah, who have gone into the land of Mitzrayim to sojourn there, shall escape or be left, to return into the land of Yehudah, to which they have a desire to return to dwell there: for none shall return save such as shall escape. 15 Then all the men who knew that their wives burned incense to other gods, and all the women who stood by, a great assembly, even all the people who lived in the land of Mitzrayim, in Patros, answered Yirmeyahu, saying, 16 As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the LORD, we will not listen to you. 17 But we will certainly perform every word that is gone forth out of our mouth, to burn incense to the queen of the sky, and to pour out drink-offerings to her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings and our princes, in the cities of Yehudah, and in the streets of Yerushalayim; for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil. 18 But since we left off burning incense to the queen of the sky, and pouring out drink-offerings to her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine. 19 When we burned incense to the queen of the sky, and poured out drink-offerings to her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink-offerings to her, without our husbands? 20 Then Yirmeyahu said to all the people, to the men, and to the women, even to all the people who had given him who answer, saying, 21 The incense that you burned in the cities of Yehudah, and in the streets of Yerushalayim, you and your fathers, your kings and your princes, and the people of the land, didn’t the LORD remember them, and didn’t it come into his mind? 22 so that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which you have committed; therefore is your land become a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without inhabitant, as it is this day. 23 Because you have burned incense, and because you have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened to you, as it is this day.


2:1 You therefore, my child, be strengthened in the grace that is in Messiah Yeshua. 

2 The things which you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also. 

3 You therefore must endure hardship, as a good soldier of Messiah Yeshua. 

4 No soldier on service entangles himself in the affairs of life, that he may please him who enrolled him as a soldier. 

5 If also a man competes in the games, he is not crowned, unless he has competed by the rules. 

6 The farmers who labor must be the first to get a share of the crops. 

7 Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things. 

8 Remember Yeshua the Messiah, risen from the dead, of the seed of David, according to my Good News, 

9 in which I suffer hardship to bonds, as a criminal. But God’s word isn’t bound. 

10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sake, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Messiah Yeshua with eternal glory. 

11 This saying is faithful: For if we died with him, we will also live with him.

12 If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we will deny him, he also will deny us. 

13 If we are faithless, he remains faithful — he can’t deny himself. 

14 Remind them of these things, charging them in the sight of the Lord, that they don’t argue about words, to no profit, to the subverting of those who hear. 

15 Give diligence to present yourself approved by God, a workman who doesn’t need to be ashamed, properly handling the Word of Truth. 

16 But shun empty chatter, for they will proceed further in ungodliness, 

17 and their word will consume like gangrene, of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 

18 men who have erred concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past, and overthrowing the faith of some.

19 However God’s firm foundation stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let every one who names the name of the Lord depart from unrighteousness.” 

20 Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of clay. Some are for honor, and some for dishonor. 

21 If a man therefore purges himself from these, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, and suitable for the master’s use, prepared for every good work.

PSALMS: 2, 32, 62, 92, 122





1 Why are the nations in an uproar,

the peoples grumbling in vain?

2 The earth’s kings are taking positions,

leaders conspiring together,

against ADONAI and his anointed. 

3 They cry, “Let’s break their fetters!

Let’s throw off their chains!” 

4 He who sits in heaven laughs;

Adonai looks at them in derision. 

5 Then in his anger he rebukes them,

terrifies them in his fury. 

6 “I myself have installed my king on Tziyon,

my holy mountain.” 

7 “I will proclaim the decree:

ADONAI said to me,

‘You are my son;

today I became your father. 

8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance;

the whole wide world will be your possession. 

9 You will break them with an iron rod,

shatter them like a clay pot.'” 

10 Therefore, kings, be wise;

be warned, you judges of the earth. 

11 Serve ADONAI with fear;

rejoice, but with trembling. 

12 Kiss the son, lest he be angry,

and you perish along the way,

when suddenly his anger blazes.

How blessed are all who take refuge in him.


1 By David.

A maskil:

How blessed are those whose offense is forgiven,

those whose sin is covered! 

2 How blessed those to whom ADONAI imputes no guilt,

in whose spirit is no deceit! 

3 When I kept silent,

my bones wasted away because of my groaning all day long;

4 day and night your hand was heavy on me;

the sap in me dried up as in a summer drought.


5 When I acknowledged my sin to you,

when I stopped concealing my guilt,

and said, “I will confess my offenses to ADONAI”;

then you, you forgave the guilt of my sin. (Selah) 

6 This is what everyone faithful should pray at a time when you can be found.

Then, when the floodwaters are raging, they will not reach to him. 

7 You are a hiding-place for me, you will keep me from distress;

you will surround me with songs of deliverance. (Selah) 

8 “I will instruct and teach you in this way that you are to go;

I will give you counsel;

my eyes will be watching you.” 

9 Don’t be like a horse or mule that has no understanding,

that has to be curbed with bit and bridle,

or else it won’t come near you. 

10 Many are the torments of the wicked,

but grace surrounds those who trust in ADONAI. 

11 Be glad in ADONAI;

rejoice, you righteous!

Shout for joy, all you upright in heart!


1 For the leader.

Set in the style of Y’dutun.

A psalm of David:

My soul waits in silence for God alone;

my salvation comes from him. 

2 He alone is my rock and salvation, my stronghold;

I won’t be greatly moved. 

3 How long will you assail a person in order to murder him, all of you,

as if he were a sagging wall or a shaky fence? 

4 They only want to shake him from his height,

they take delight in lying with their mouths they bless, but inwardly they curse.


5 My soul, wait in silence for God alone,

because my hope comes from him. 

6 He alone is my rock and salvation, my stronghold;

I won’t be moved.

7  My safety and honor rest on God.

My strong rock and refuge are in God. 

8 Trust in him, people, at all times;

pour out your heart before him;

God is a refuge for us. (Selah) 

9 Ordinary folks are merely a breath and important people a sham;

if you lay them on a balance-scale, they go up both together are lighter than nothing. 

10 Don’t put your trust in extortion, don’t put false hopes in robbery;

even if wealth increases, don’t set your heart on it. 

11 God has spoken once, I have heard it twice:

strength belongs to God. 

12 Also to you, Adonai, belongs grace;

for you reward all as their deeds deserve.


1 A psalm.

A song for Shabbat:

It is good to give thanks to ADONAI and sing praises to your name, ‘Elyon, 

2 to tell in the morning about your grace and at night about your faithfulness, 

3 to the music of a ten-stringed [harp] and a lute,

with the melody sounding on a lyre. 

4 For, ADONAI, what you do makes me happy;

I take joy in what your hands have made. 

5 How great are your deeds, ADONAI!

How very deep your thoughts! 

6 Stupid people can’t know, fools don’t understand, 

7 that when the wicked sprout like grass, and all who do evil prosper,

it is so that they can be eternally destroyed, 

8 while you, ADONAI, are exalted forever. 

9 For your enemies, ADONAI, your enemies will perish;

all evildoers will be scattered. 

10 But you have given me the strength of a wild bull;

you anoint me with fresh olive oil. 

11 My eyes have gazed with pleasure on my enemies’ ruin,

my ears have delighted in the fall of my foes. 

12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,

they will grow like a cedar in the L’vanon.

13 Planted in the house of ADONAI,

they will flourish in the courtyards of our God. 

14 Even in old age they will be vigorous,

still full of sap, still bearing fruit, 

15 proclaiming that ADONAI is upright, my Rock,

in whom there is no wrong.


1 A song of ascents.

By David: I was glad when they said to me,

“The house of ADONAI! Let’s go!” 

2 Our feet were already standing at your gates, Yerushalayim. 

3 Yerushalayim, built as a city fostering friendship and unity. 

4 The tribes have gone up there, the tribes of ADONAI,

as a witness to Isra’el, to give thanks to the name of ADONAI. 

5 For there the thrones of justice were set up,

the thrones of the house of David. 

6 Pray for shalom in Yerushalayim;

may those who love you prosper. 

7 May shalom be within your ramparts,

prosperity in your palaces. 

8 For the sake of my family and friends,

I say, “Shalom be within you!” 

9 For the sake of the house of ADONAI our God,

I will seek your well-being.


1 My son, if you will receive my words and

store my commands inside you, 

2 paying attention to wisdom inclining

your mind toward understanding 

3 yes, if you will call for insight and

raise your voice for discernment, 

4 if you seek it as you would silver and

search for it as for hidden treasure – 

5 then you will understand the fear of ADONAI and find knowledge of God. 

6 For ADONAI gives wisdom;

from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding. 

7 He stores up common sense for the upright,

is a shield to those whose conduct is blameless, 

8 in order to guard the courses of justice and preserve

the way of those faithful to him. 

9 Then you will understand righteousness,

justice, fairness and every good path. 

10 For wisdom will enter your heart,

knowledge will be enjoyable for you, 

11 discretion will watch over you,

and discernment will guard you. 

12 They will save you from the way of evil and

from those who speak deceitfully, 

13 who leave the paths of honesty

to walk the ways of darkness, 

14 who delight in doing evil and

take joy in being stubbornly deceitful, 

15 from those whose tracks are twisted and

whose paths are perverse. 

16 They will save you from a woman who is a stranger,

from a loose woman with smooth talk, 

17 who abandons the ruler she had in her youth and

forgets the covenant of her God. 

18 Her house is sinking toward death,

her paths lead to the dead. 

19 None who go to her return;

they never regain the path to life. 

20 Thus you will walk on the way of good people

and keep to the paths of the righteous. 

21 For the upright will live in the land,

the pure-hearted will remain there; 

22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land,

the unfaithful rooted out of it.


39:1 It happened when Yerushalayim was taken, (in the ninth year of Tzidkiyahu king of Yehudah, in the tenth month, came Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel and all his army against Yerushalayim, and besieged it; 2 in the eleventh year of Tzidkiyahu, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, a breach was made in the city,) 3 that all the princes of the king of Bavel came in, and sat in the middle gate, [to wit], Nergal-Sar’etzer, Samgar-Nevo, Sarsekhim, Rav-Saris, Nergal-Sar’etzer, Rav-Mag, with all the rest of the princes of the king of Bavel. 4 It happened that, when Tzidkiyahu the king of Yehudah and all the men of war saw them, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king’s garden, through the gate between the two walls; and he went out toward the `Aravah. 5 But the army of the Kasdim pursued after them, and overtook Tzidkiyahu in the plains of Yericho: and when they had taken him, they brought him up to Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel to Rivlah in the land of Hamat; and he gave judgment on him. 6 Then the king of Bavel killed the sons of Tzidkiyahu in Rivlah before his eyes: also the king of Bavel killed all the nobles of Yehudah. 7 Moreover he put out Tzidkiyahu’s eyes, and bound him in fetters, to carry him to Bavel. 8 The Kasdim burned the king’s house, and the houses of the people, with fire, and broke down the walls of Yerushalayim. 9 Then Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard carried away captive into Bavel the residue of the people who remained in the city, the deserters also who fell away to him, and the residue of the people who remained.10 But Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, who had nothing, in the land of Yehudah, and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time. 11 Now Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel gave charge concerning Yirmeyahu to Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard, saying, 12 Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do to him even as he shall tell you. 13 So Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard sent, and Nevushazban, Rav-Saris, and Nergal-Sar’etzer, Rav-Mag, and all the chief officers of the king of Bavel; 14 they sent, and took Yirmeyahu out of the court of the guard, and committed him to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, the son of Shafan, that he should carry him home: so he lived among the people. 15 Now the word of the LORD came to Yirmeyahu, while he was shut up in the court of the guard, saying, 16 Go, and speak to `Eved-Melekh the Kushite, saying, Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra’el: Behold, I will bring my words on this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished before you in that day. 17 But I will deliver you in that day, says the LORD; and you shall not be given into the hand of the men of whom you are afraid. 18 For I will surely save you, and you shall not fall by the sword, but your life shall be for a prey to you; because you have put your trust in me, says the LORD.

40:1 The word which came to Yirmeyahu from the LORD, after that Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard had let him go from Ramah, when he had taken him being bound in chains among all the captives of Yerushalayim and Yehudah, who were carried away captive to Bavel. 2 The captain of the guard took Yirmeyahu, and said to him, the LORD your God pronounced this evil on this place; 3 and the LORD has brought it, and done according as he spoke: because you have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed his voice, therefore this thing is come on you. 4 Now, behold, I loose you this day from the chains which are on your hand. If it seem good to you to come with me into Bavel, come, and I will look well to you; but if it seem ill to you to come with me into Bavel, forbear: behold, all the land is before you; where it seems good and right to you to go, there go. 5 Now while he was not yet gone back, Go back then, [said he], to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, the son of Shafan, whom the king of Bavel has made governor over the cities of Yehudah, and dwell with him among the people; or go wherever it seems right to you to go. So the captain of the guard gave him victuals and a present, and let him go. 6 Then went Yirmeyahu to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam to Mitzpah, and lived with him among the people who were left in the land. 7 Now when all the captains of the forces who were in the fields, even they and their men, heard that the king of Bavel had made Gedalyahu the son of Achikam governor in the land, and had committed to him men, and women, and children, and of the poorest of the land, of those who were not carried away captive to Bavel; 8 then they came to Gedalyahu to Mitzpah, [to wit], Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, and Yochanan and Yonatan the sons of Kareach, and Serayah the son of Tanchumet, and the sons of `Efai the Netofatite, and Yezanyah the son of the Ma`akhatite, they and their men. 9 Gedalyahu the son of Achikam the son of Shafan swore to them and to their men, saying, Don’t be afraid to serve the Kasdim: dwell in the land, and serve the king of Bavel, and it shall be well with you. 10 As for me, behold, I will dwell at Mitzpah, to stand before the Kasdim who shall come to us: but you, gather you wine and summer fruits and oil, and put them in your vessels, and dwell in your cities that you have taken. 11 Likewise when all the Yehudim who were in Mo’av, and among the children of `Ammon, and in Edom, and who were in all the countries, heard that the king of Bavel had left a remnant of Yehudah, and that he had set over them Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, the son of Shafan; 12 then all the Yehudim returned out of all places where they were driven, and came to the land of Yehudah, to Gedalyahu, to Mitzpah, and gathered wine and summer fruits very much. 13 Moreover Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were in the fields, came to Gedalyahu to Mitzpah, 14 and said to him, Do you know that Baalis the king of the children of `Ammon has sent Yishma’el the son of Netanyah to take your life? But Gedalyahu the son of Achikam didn’t believe them. 15 Then Yochanan the son of Kareach spoke to Gedalyahu in Mitzpah secretly, saying, Please let me go, and I will kill Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, and no man shall know it: why should he take your life, that all the Yehudim who are gathered to you should be scattered, and the remnant of Yehudah perish? 16 But Gedalyahu the son of Achikam said to Yochanan the son of Kareach, You shall not do this thing; for you speak falsely of Yishma’el.

41:1 Now it happened in the seventh month, that Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, the son of Elishama, of the seed royal and [one of] the chief officers of the king, and ten men with him, came to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam to Mitzpah; and there they ate bread together in Mitzpah. 2 Then arose Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, and the ten men who were with him, and struck Gedalyahu the son of Achikam the son of Shafan with the sword, and killed him, whom the king of Bavel had made governor over the land. 

3 Yishma’el also killed all the Yehudim who were with him, [to wit], with Gedalyahu, at Mitzpah, and the Kasdim who were found there, the men of war. 4 It happened the second day after he had killed Gedalyahu, and no man knew it, 5 that there came men from Shekhem, from Shiloh, and from Shomron, even eighty men, having their beards shaved and their clothes torn, and having cut themselves, with meal-offerings and frankincense in their hand, to bring them to the house of the LORD. 6 Yishma’el the son of Netanyah went forth from Mitzpah to meet them, weeping all along as he went: and it happened, as he met them, he said to them, Come to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam. 7 It was so, when they came into the midst of the city, that Yishma’el the son of Netanyah killed them, [and cast them] into the midst of the pit, he, and the men who were with him. 8 But ten men were found among those who said to Yishma’el, Don’t kill us; for we have stores hidden in the field, of wheat, and of barley, and of oil, and of honey. So he stopped, and didn’t kill them among their brothers. 9 Now the pit in which Yishma’el cast all the dead bodies of the men whom he had killed, by the side of Gedalyahu (the same was who which Asa the king had made for fear of Ba`sha king of Yisra’el,) Yishma’el the son of Netanyah filled it with those who were killed. 10 Then Yishma’el carried away captive all the residue of the people who were in Mitzpah, even the king’s daughters, and all the people who remained in Mitzpah, whom Nevuzar’adan the captain of the guard had committed to Gedalyahu the son of Achikam; Yishma’el the son of Netanyah carried them away captive, and departed to go over to the children of `Ammon. 11 But when Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, heard of all the evil that Yishma’el the son of Netanyah had done, 12 then they took all the men, and went to fight with Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, and found him by the great waters that are in Giv`on. 13 Now it happened that, when all the people who were with Yishma’el saw Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, then they were glad. 14 So all the people who Yishma’el had carried away captive from Mitzpah turned about and came back, and went to Yochanan the son of Kareach. 15 But Yishma’el the son of Netanyah escaped from Yochanan with eight men, and went to the children of `Ammon. 16 Then took Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, all the remnant of the people whom he had recovered from Yishma’el the son of Netanyah, from Mitzpah, after that he had killed Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, [to wit], the men of war, and the women, and the children, and the eunuchs, whom he had brought back from Giv`on: 17 and they departed, and lived in Gerut-Kimaham, which is by Beit-Lechem, to go to enter into Mitzrayim, 18 because of the Kasdim; for they were afraid of them, because Yishma’el the son of Netanyah had killed Gedalyahu the son of Achikam, whom the king of Bavel made governor over the land.


1:1 Sha’ul, an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah through the will of God, according to the promise of the life which is in Messiah Yeshua, 

2 to Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and shalom, from God, the Father, and Messiah Yeshua, our Lord. 

3 I thank God, whom I serve as my forefathers did, with a pure conscience. How unceasing is my memory of you in my petitions, night and day 

4 longing to see you, remembering your tears, that I may be filled with joy; 

5 having been reminded of the unfeigned faith that is in you; which lived first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice, and, I am persuaded, in you also. 

6 For this cause, I remind you that you should stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 

7 For God didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and discipline.

8 Don’t be ashamed therefore of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me, his prisoner; but suffer hardship with the Good News according to the power of God, 

9 who saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Messiah Yeshua before times eternal,

10 but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior, Messiah Yeshua, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the Good News. 

11 For this, I was appointed as a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Goyim. 

12 For this cause I suffer also these things. Yet I am not ashamed, for I know him whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to guard that which I have committed to him against that day. 

13 Hold the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which is in Messiah Yeshua. 

14 That good thing which was committed to you, guard through the Ruach HaKodesh which dwells in us. 

15 This you know, that all who are in Asia turned away from me; of whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 

16 May the Lord grant mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain, 

17 but when he was in Rome, he sought me diligently, and found me 

18 (the Lord grant to him to find the Lord’s mercy in that day); and in how many things he served at Ephesus, you know very well.

PSALMS: 31, 61, 91, 121





1 In you, LORD, do I take refuge.

Let me never be put to shame:

Deliver me in your righteousness. 

2 Bow down your ear to me.

Deliver me speedily.

Be to me a strong rock,

A house of defense to save me. 

3 For you are my rock and my fortress,

Therefore for your name’s sake lead me and guide me. 

4 Pluck me out of the net that they have laid secretly for me,

For you are my stronghold. 

5 Into your hand I commend my spirit.

You redeem me, LORD, God of truth.

6 I hate those who regard lying vanities,

But I trust in the LORD. 

7 I will be glad and rejoice in your loving kindness,

For you have seen my affliction.

You have known my soul in adversities. 

8 You have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy.

You have set my feet in a large place. 

9 Have mercy on me, LORD, for I am in distress.

My eye, my soul, and my body waste away with grief. 

10 For my life is spent with sorrow,

My years with sighing.

My strength fails because of my iniquity.

My bones are wasted away. 

11 Because of all my adversaries

I have become utterly contemptible to my neighbors,

A fear to my acquaintances.

Those who saw me on the street fled from me. 

12 I am forgotten from their hearts like a dead man.

I am like broken pottery. 

13 For I have heard the slander of many, terror on every side,

While they conspire together against me,

They plot to take away my life. 

14 But I trust in you, LORD.

I said, You are my God.

15 My times are in your hand.

Deliver me from the hand of my enemies,

and from those who persecute me. 

16 Make your face to shine on your servant.

Save me in your loving kindness. 

17 Let me not be put to shame, LORD,

for I have called on you.

Let the wicked be put to shame.

Let them be silent in She’ol. 

18 Let the lying lips be mute,

Which speak against the righteous insolently,

with pride and contempt. 

19 Oh how great is your goodness,

Which you have laid up for those who fear you,

‘Which you have worked for those who take refuge in you,

Before the sons of men! 

20 In the covert of your presence will you hide them from the plotting of man.

You will keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. 

21 Praise be to the LORD,

For he has shown me his marvelous loving kindness in a strong city. 

22 As for me, I said in my haste,

“I am cut off from before your eyes.”

Nevertheless you heard the voice of my petitions when I cried to you. 

23 Oh love the LORD, all you his holy ones!

The LORD preserves the faithful,

And pays back him who deals proudly in full. 

24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage,

All you who hope in the LORD.


1 Hear my cry, God.

Listen to my prayer. 

2 From the end of the eretz,

I will call to you, when my heart is overwhelmed.

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 

3 For you have been a refuge for me,

A strong tower from the enemy. 

4 I will dwell in your tent forever.

I will take refuge in the shelter of your wings.


5 For you, God, have heard my vows.

You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name. 

6 You will prolong the king’s life;

His years shall be for generations. 

7 He shall be enthroned in God’s presence forever.

Appoint your loving kindness and truth,

that they may preserve him.

8 So I will sing praise to your name forever,

That I may fulfill my vows daily.


1 He who dwells in the secret place of Ha`Elyon

Will rest in the shadow of Shaddai. 

2 I will say of the LORD,

“He is my refuge and my fortress;

My God, in whom I trust.” 

3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler,

From the deadly pestilence. 

4 He will cover you with his pinions.

Under his wings you will take refuge.

His truth is a shield and a buckler. 

5 You will not be afraid of the terror by night,

Nor of the arrow that flies by day; 

6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,

Nor of the destruction that wastes at noonday. 

7 A thousand may fall at your side,

And ten thousand at your right hand;

But it will not come near you. 

8 You will only look with your eyes,

And see the reward of the wicked. 

9 For you, LORD, are my refuge!

You have made Ha`Elyon your habitation. 

10 No evil shall happen to you,

Neither shall any plague come near your dwelling. 

11 For he will give his angels charge over you,

To guard you in all your ways.

12 They will bear you up in their hands,

So that you won’t dash your foot against a stone. 

13 You will tread on the lion and cobra.

You will trample the young lion and the serpent underfoot. 

14 “Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him.

I will set him on high, because he has known my name. 

15 He will call on me, and I will answer him.

I will be with him in trouble.

I will deliver him, and honor him. 

16 I will satisfy him with long life,

And show him my yeshu`ah.”


1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills.

Where does my help come from? 

2 My help comes from the LORD,

Who made heaven and eretz. 

3 He will not allow your foot to be moved.

He who keeps you will not slumber. 

4 Behold, he who keeps Yisra’el

Will neither slumber nor sleep. 

5 The LORD is your keeper.

The LORD is your shade on your right hand. 

6 The sun will not harm you by day,

Nor the moon by night. 

7 The LORD will keep you from all evil.

He will keep your soul. 

8 The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in,

From this time forth, and forevermore.


1 The words of king Lemo’el;

the oracle which his mother taught him. 

2 “Oh, my son!” Oh, son of my womb!

Oh, son of my vows! 

3 Don’t give your strength to women,

Nor your ways to that which destroys kings. 

4 It is not for kings, Lemo’el;

it is not for kings to drink wine;

Nor for princes to say, ‘Where is strong drink?’ 

5 Lest they drink, and forget the law,

And pervert the justice due to anyone who is afflicted. 

6 Give strong drink to him who is ready to perish;

And wine to the bitter in soul: 

7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty,

And remember his misery no more. 

8 Open your mouth for the mute,

In the cause of all who are left desolate. 

9 Open your mouth, judge righteously,

And serve justice to the poor and needy.” 

10 Who can find a worthy woman?

For her price is far above rubies. 

11 The heart of her husband trusts in her.

He shall have no lack of gain. 

12 She does him good, and not harm,

All the days of her life. 

13 She seeks wool and flax,

And works eagerly with her hands. 

14 She is like the merchant ships.

She brings her bread from afar. 

15 She rises also while it is yet night,

Gives food to her household,

And portions for her servant girls. 

16 She considers a field, and buys it.

With the fruit of her hands, she plants a vineyard. 

17 She girds her loins with strength,

And makes her arms strong. 

18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.

Her lamp doesn’t go out by night.

19 She lays her hands to the distaff,

And her hands hold the spindle. 

20 She opens her arms to the poor;

Yes, she extends her hands to the needy. 

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household;

For all her household are clothed with scarlet. 

22 She makes for herself carpets of tapestry.

Her clothing is fine linen and purple. 

23 Her husband is respected in the gates,

When he sits among the Zakenim of the land. 

24 She makes linen garments and sells them,

And delivers sashes to the merchant. 

25 Strength and dignity are her clothing.

She laughs at the time to come. 

26 She opens her mouth with wisdom.

Faithful instruction is on her tongue.

27 She looks well to the ways of her household,

And doesn’t eat the bread of idleness. 

28 Her children rise up and call her blessed.

Her husband also praises her: 

29 “Many women do noble things,

But you excel them all.” 

30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain;

But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. 

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands;

Let her works praise her in the gates.


35:1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD during the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah: 2 “Go to the Rekabite family and invite them to come to one of the side rooms of the house of the LORD and give them wine to drink.” 

3 So I went to get Jaazaniah son of Jeremiah, the son of Habazziniah, and his brothers and all his sons—the whole family of the Rekabites. 4 I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the room of the sons of Hanan son of Igdaliah the man of God. It was next to the room of the officials, which was over that of Maaseiah son of Shallum the doorkeeper. 5 Then I set bowls full of wine and some cups before the Rekabites and said to them, “Drink some wine.” 6 But they replied, “We do not drink wine, because our forefather Jehonadab son of Rekab gave us this command: ‘Neither you nor your descendants must ever drink wine. 7 Also you must never build houses, sow seed or plant vineyards; you must never have any of these things, but must always live in tents. Then you will live a long time in the land where you are nomads.’ 8 We have obeyed everything our forefather Jehonadab son of Rekab commanded us. Neither we nor our wives nor our sons and daughters have ever drunk wine 9 or built houses to live in or had vineyards, fields or crops. 10 We have lived in tents and have fully obeyed everything our forefather Jehonadab commanded us. 11 But when Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon invaded this land, we said, ‘Come, we must go to Jerusalem to escape the Babylonian and Aramean armies.’ So we have remained in Jerusalem.” 12 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying: 13 “This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go and tell the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘Will you not learn a lesson and obey my words?’ declares the LORD. 14 ‘Jehonadab son of Rekab ordered his descendants not to drink wine and this command has been kept. To this day they do not drink wine, because they obey their forefather’s command. But I have spoken to you again and again, yet you have not obeyed me. 15 Again and again I sent all my servants the prophets to you. They said, “Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. Then you will live in the land I have given to you and your ancestors.” But you have not paid attention or listened to me. 16 The descendants of Jehonadab son of Rekab have carried out the command their forefather gave them, but these people have not obeyed me.’ 

17 “Therefore this is what the LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘Listen! I am going to bring on Judah and on everyone living in Jerusalem every disaster I pronounced against them. I spoke to them, but they did not listen; I called to them, but they did not answer.’ ” 18 Then Jeremiah said to the family of the Rekabites, “This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘You have obeyed the command of your forefather Jehonadab and have followed all his instructions and have done everything he ordered.’ 19 Therefore this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘Jehonadab son of Rekab will never fail to have a descendant to serve me.’ ”

36:1 In the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD: 2 “Take a scroll and write on it all the words I have spoken to you concerning Israel, Judah and all the other nations from the time I began speaking to you in the reign of Josiah till now. 3 Perhaps when the people of Judah hear about every disaster I plan to inflict on them, they will each turn from their wicked ways; then I will forgive their wickedness and their sin.” 4 So Jeremiah called Baruch son of Neriah, and while Jeremiah dictated all the words the LORD had spoken to him, Baruch wrote them on the scroll. 5 Then Jeremiah told Baruch, “I am restricted; I am not allowed to go to the LORD’s temple. 6 So you go to the house of the LORD on a day of fasting and read to the people from the scroll the words of the LORD that you wrote as I dictated. Read them to all the people of Judah who come in from their towns. 7 Perhaps they will bring their petition before the LORD and will each turn from their wicked ways, for the anger and wrath pronounced against this people by the LORD are great.” 8 Baruch son of Neriah did everything Jeremiah the prophet told him to do; at the LORD’s temple he read the words of the LORD from the scroll. 9 In the ninth month of the fifth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, a time of fasting before the LORD was proclaimed for all the people in Jerusalem and those who had come from the towns of Judah. 10 From the room of Gemariah son of Shaphan the secretary, which was in the upper courtyard at the entrance of the New Gate of the temple, Baruch read to all the people at the LORD’s temple the words of Jeremiah from the scroll. 11 When Micaiah son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, heard all the words of the LORD from the scroll, 12 he went down to the secretary’s room in the royal palace, where all the officials were sitting: Elishama the secretary, Delaiah son of Shemaiah, Elnathan son of Akbor, Gemariah son of Shaphan, Zedekiah son of Hananiah, and all the other officials. 13 After Micaiah told them everything he had heard Baruch read to the people from the scroll, 14 all the officials sent Jehudi son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, to say to Baruch, “Bring the scroll from which you have read to the people and come.” So Baruch son of Neriah went to them with the scroll in his hand. 

15 They said to him, “Sit down, please, and read it to us.” So Baruch read it to them. 16 When they heard all these words, they looked at each other in fear and said to Baruch, “We must report all these words to the king.” 17  Then they asked Baruch, “Tell us, how did you come to write all this? Did Jeremiah dictate it?” 18 “Yes,” Baruch replied, “he dictated all these words to me, and I wrote them in ink on the scroll.”19 Then the officials said to Baruch, “You and Jeremiah, go and hide. Don’t let anyone know where you are.” 20 After they put the scroll in the room of Elishama the secretary, they went to the king in the courtyard and reported everything to him. 21 The king sent Jehudi to get the scroll, and Jehudi brought it from the room of Elishama the secretary and read it to the king and all the officials standing beside him. 22 It was the ninth month and the king was sitting in the winter apartment, with a fire burning in the firepot in front of him. 23 Whenever Jehudi had read three or four columns of the scroll, the king cut them off with a scribe’s knife and threw them into the firepot, until the entire scroll was burned in the fire. 24 The king and all his attendants who heard all these words showed no fear, nor did they tear their clothes. 25 Even though Elnathan, Delaiah and Gemariah urged the king not to burn the scroll, he would not listen to them. 26 Instead, the king commanded Jerahmeel, a son of the king, Seraiah son of Azriel and Shelemiah son of Abdeel to arrest Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet. But the LORD had hidden them. 27 After the king burned the scroll containing the words that Baruch had written at Jeremiah’s dictation, the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: 28 “Take another scroll and write on it all the words that were on the first scroll, which Jehoiakim king of Judah burned up. 29 Also tell Jehoiakim king of Judah, ‘This is what the LORD says: You burned that scroll and said, “Why did you write on it that the king of Babylon would certainly come and destroy this land and wipe from it both man and beast?” 30 Therefore this is what the LORD says about Jehoiakim king of Judah: He will have no one to sit on the throne of David; his body will be thrown out and exposed to the heat by day and the frost by night. 31 I will punish him and his children and his attendants for their wickedness; I will bring on them and those living in Jerusalem and the people of Judah every disaster I pronounced against them, because they have not listened.’ ” 32 So Jeremiah took another scroll and gave it to the scribe Baruch son of Neriah, and as Jeremiah dictated, Baruch wrote on it all the words of the scroll that Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire. And many similar words were added to them.


Widows, Elders and Slaves

1 Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, 

2 older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity. 

3 Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. 

4 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 

5 The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help. 

6 But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives. 

7  Give the people these instructions, so that no one may be open to blame. 

8 Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 

9 No widow may be put on the list of widows unless she is over sixty, has been faithful to her husband,

10 and is well known for her good deeds, such as bringing up children, showing hospitality, washing the feet of the Lord’s people, helping those in trouble and devoting herself to all kinds of good deeds. 

11 As for younger widows, do not put them on such a list. For when their sensual desires overcome their dedication to Christ, they want to marry. 

12 Thus they bring judgment on themselves, because they have broken their first pledge. 

13 Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also busybodies who talk nonsense, saying things they ought not to. 

14 So I counsel younger widows to marry, to have children, to manage their homes and to give the enemy no opportunity for slander. 

15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan. 

16 If any woman who is a believer has widows in her care, she should continue to help them and not let the church be burdened with them, so that the church can help those widows who are really in need. 

17 The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. 

18 For Scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and “The worker deserves his wages.” 

19 Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses. 

20 But those elders who are sinning you are to reprove before everyone, so that the others may take warning. 

21 I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality, and to do nothing out of favoritism. 

22 Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure. 

23 Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses. 

24 The sins of some are obvious, reaching the place of judgment ahead of them; the sins of others trail behind them. 

25 In the same way, good deeds are obvious, and even those that are not obvious cannot remain hidden forever.
