+ 309 The life of the child Jesus, with fanciful, and sometimes malevolent, supernatural events, comparable to the trickster nature of the god-child in many a Greek myth. One of the episodes involves Jesus making clay birds, which he then proceeds to bring to life, an act also attributed to Jesus in Quran 5:110, although Jesus's age at the time of the event is not specified in the Quran. In another episode, a child disperses water that Jesus has collected. Jesus, aged one, then curses him, which causes the child's body to wither into a corpse. Another child dies when Jesus curses him when he apparently accidentally bumps into Jesus, throws a stone at Jesus, or punches Jesus. When Joseph and Mary's neighbors complain, they are miraculously struck blind by Jesus. Jesus then starts receiving lessons, but arrogantly tries to teach the teacher instead, upsetting the teacher who suspects supernatural origins. Jesus is amused by this suspicion, which he confirms, and revokes all his earlier apparent cruelty. Subsequently he resurrects a friend who is killed when he falls from a roof, and heals another who cuts his foot with an axe. After various other demonstrations of supernatural ability, new teachers try to teach Jesus, but he proceeds to explain the law to them instead. There is another set of miracles in which Jesus heals his brother who is bitten by a snake, and two others who have died from different causes. Finally, the text recounts the episode in Luke in which Jesus, aged twelve, teaches in the temple.

+ 270 I speak of the war as fruitless; for it is clear that, prosecuted upon the basis of the proclamations of September 22d and September 24th, 1862, prosecuted, as I must understand these proclamations, to say nothing of the kindred blood which has followed, upon the theory of emancipation, devastation, subjugation, it cannot fail to be fruitless in every thing except the harvest of woe which it is ripening for what was once the peerless republic. Franklin Pierce


+ 333 The will of the nation, speaking with the voice of battle and through the amended Constitution, has fulfilled the great promise of 1776 by proclaiming 'liberty throughout the land to all the inhabitants thereof.' The elevation of the negro race from slavery to the full rights of citizenship is the most important political change we have known since the adoption of the Constitution of 1787. NO thoughtful man can fail to appreciate its beneficent effect upon our institutions and people. It has freed us from the perpetual danger of war and dissolution. It has added immensely to the moral and industrial forces of our people. It has liberated the master as well as the slave from a relation which wronged and enfeebled both. It has surrendered to their own guardianship the manhood of more than 5,000,000 people, and has opened to each one of them a career of freedom and usefulness. James A. Garfield


+ 299 The very employers and politicians and publishers who talk most loudly of class antagonism and the destruction of the American system now undermine that system by this attempt to coerce the votes of the wage earners of this country. It is the 1936 version of the old threat to close down the factory or the office if a particular candidate does not win. It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. Every message in a pay envelope, even if it is the truth, is a command to vote according to the will of the employer. But this propaganda is worse—it is deceit. Franklin D. Roosevelt

+ 409 The Message

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

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

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

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

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

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

+ 387 One can ask two different kinds of questions with regard to the topics of study in psychology as well as in other sciences. One can ask for the phenomenal characteristics of psychological units or events, for example, how many kinds of feelings can be qualitatively differentiated from one another or which characteristics describe an experience of a voluntary act. Aside from this are the questions asking for the why, for the cause and the effect, for the conditional-genetic interrelations. For example, one can ask: Under which conditions has been a decision made and which are the specific psychological effects which follow this decision? The depiction of phenomenal characteristics is usually characterized as “description”, the depiction of causal relationships as “explanation.” Kurt Lewin 1927


+ 381 The popular medical formulation of morality that goes back to Ariston of Chios, "virtue is the health of the soul," would have to be changed to become useful, at least to read: "your virtue is the health of your soul." For there is no health as such, and all attempts to define a thing that way have been wretched failures. Even the determination of what is healthy for your body depends on your goal, your horizon, your energies, your impulses, your errors, and above all on the ideals and phantasms of your soul. Thus there are innumerable healths of the body; and the more we allow the unique and incomparable to raise its head again, and the more we abjure the dogma of the "equality of men," the more must the concept of a normal health, along with a normal diet and the normal course of an illness, be abandoned by medical men. Only then would the time have come to reflect on the health and illness of the soul, and to find the peculiar virtue of each man in the health of his soul. Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science, § 120 “Health of the Soul”

+ 303 I believe in intuition and inspiration. … At times I feel certain I am right while not knowing the reason. When the eclipse of 1919 confirmed my intuition, I was not in the least surprised. In fact I would have been astonished had it turned out otherwise. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.

Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas. Albert Einstein, New York Times, May 1, 1935

+ 386 The hardest lesson you will ever learn will be to love yourself. But you can do it. There will always be days when you hate yourself, days when you wish you had never been born. But you are beautiful, and if Shakespeare had met you, you would’ve inspired his 18th sonnet, and if Monet had known you, he would’ve given up painting water lilies and chosen to paint you instead. I know it’s hard to love yourself, but sometimes it’s okay to be a little selfish with your love..Live for the life you always wanted but were too scared to pursue. Live for you. Live for every person who has ever loved you. Live for the fire that burns in your soul, that tells you: keep going, you’re almost there, just a little farther. M.K.

+ 798 When I arrived in England I thought I knew English. After I'd been here an hour I realized that I did not understand one word. In the first week I picked up a tolerable working knowledge of the language and the next seven years convinced me gradually but thoroughly that I would never know it really well, let alone perfectly. This is sad. My only consolation being that nobody speaks English perfectly.

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

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

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

+ 410 As a convinced atheist, I ought to agree with Voltaire that Judaism is not just one more religion, but in its way the root of religious evil. Without the stern, joyless rabbis and their 613 dour prohibitions, we might have avoided the whole nightmare of the Old Testament, and the brutal, crude wrenching of that into prophecy - derived Christianity, and the later plagiarism and mutation of Judaism and Christianity into the various rival forms of Islam. Much of the time, I do concur with Voltaire, but not without acknowledging that Judaism is dialectical. There is, after all, a specifically Jewish version of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, with a specifically Jewish name — the Haskalah — for itself. The term derives from the word for 'mind' or 'intellect,' and it is naturally associated with ethics rather than rituals, life rather than prohibitions, and assimilation over 'exile' or 'return.' It's everlastingly linked to the name of the great German teacher Moses Mendelssohn, one of those conspicuous Jewish hunchbacks who so upset and embarrassed Isaiah Berlin. The other way to upset or embarrass Berlin, I found, was to mention that he himself was a cousin of Menachem Schneerson, the 'messianic' Lubavitcher rebbe. However, even pre-enlightenment Judaism forces its adherents to study and think, it reluctantly teaches them what others think, and it may even teach them how to think also.

+ 354 Well-matured and well-disciplined talent is always sure of a market, provided it exerts itself; but it must not cower at home and expect to be sought for. There is a good deal of cant, too, in the whining about the success of forward and impudent men, while men of retiring worth are passed over with neglect. But it happens often that those forward men have that valuable quality of promptness and activity, without which worth is a mere inoperative property. A barking dog is often more useful than a sleeping lion. Endeavor to make your talents convertible to ready use, prompt for the occasion, and adapted to the ordinary purposes of life; cultivate strength rather than gracefulness; in our country it is the useful, not the ornamental, that is in demand.

Truth is uniform and narrow; it constantly exists, and does not seem to require so much an active energy, as a passive aptitude of the soul in order to encounter it. But error is endlessly diversified; it has no reality, but is the pure and simple creation of the mind that invents it. In this field the soul has room enough to expand herself, to display all her boundless faculties, and all her beautiful and interesting extravagancies and absurdities.

+ 263 Keep up to date with the latest news regarding your career and hobbies. Try new and daring things that has sparked your interest – such as dancing, skiing, surfing or sky-diving.


+ 238 Don't wallow in self-pity. As soon as you face a challenge get busy finding a solution. Don't let the set backs affect your mood, instead see each new obstacle you face as an opportunity to make a positive change. Learn to trust your gut instincts – it's almost always right.


+ 292 Some statistics show that 80% of people dislike their jobs! No wonder there's so many unhappy people running around. We spend a great deal of our life working. Choose a career that you enjoy – the extra money of a job you detest isn't worth it. Make time to enjoy your hobbies and pursue special interests.


+ 238 Holding a grudge will hurt no one but you. Forgive others for your own peace of mind. When you make a mistake – own up to it – learn from it – and FORGIVE yourself.


+ 294 Develop an attitude of gratitude. Count your blessings; All of them – even the things that seem trivial. Be grateful for your home, your work and most importantly your family and friends. Take the time to tell them that you are happy they are in your life.


+ 280 Concentrate on creating your life the way you want it. Take care of you and your family. Don't get overly concerned with what other people are doing or saying. Don't get caught up with gossip or name calling. Don't judge. Everyone has a right to live their own life the way they want to – including you.


+ 245 See the glass as half full. Find the positive side of any given situation. It's there – even though it may be hard to find. Know that everything happens for a reason, even though you may never know what the reason is. Steer clear of negative thoughts. If a negative thought creeps in – replace it with a positive thought.


+ 287 Accept others for who they are. You don't put limitations on your love. Even though you may not always like the actions of your loved ones – you continue to love them.


+ 291 Accept what can not be changed. Happy people don't waste energy on circumstances beyond their control. Accept your limitations as a human being. Determine how you can take control by creating the outcome you desire – rather than waiting to respond.


+ 272 Don't try to be someone that you're not. After all no one likes a phony. Determine who you are in the inside – your own personal likes and dislikes. Be confident in who you are. Do the best you can and don't second guess yourself.


+ 245 Happy people know and understand that they are 100% responsible for their life. They take responsibility for their moods, attitude, thoughts, feelings, actions and words. They are the first to admit when they've made a mistake.

+ 270 During the Messianic Era, the Mashiach will serve a dual role. He will be a monarch, ruling over all of humanity with kindness and justice, and upholding the law of the Torah — 613 commandments for the Jews, and seven for the non-Jews. He will also be the ultimate teacher, the conduit for the deepest and most profound dimensions of the Torah which will then be revealed by God.

He will establish a government in Israel that will be the center of all world government, both for Jews and gentiles (Isaiah 2:2-4; 11:10; 42:1). He will rebuild the Temple and re-establish its worship (Jeremiah 33:18). He will restore the religious court system of Israel and establish Jewish law as the law of the land (Jeremiah 33:15).


+ 291 The mashiach will be a great political leader descended from King David (Jeremiah 23:5). The mashiach is often referred to as "mashiach ben David" (mashiach, son of David). He will be well-versed in Jewish law, and observant of its commandments (Isaiah 11:2-5). He will be a charismatic leader, inspiring others to follow his example. He will be a great military leader, who will win battles for Israel. He will be a great judge, who makes righteous decisions (Jeremiah 33:15). But above all, he will be a human being, not a god, demi-god or other supernatural being.

+ 235 Zoharic statement (III, 71b), "When a tzaddik departs he is to be found in all the worlds more than during his lifetime".


+ 272 Jerusalem Post in 2001 Berger explained that in the view of some elokists: “The supremely righteous, of whom the Rebbe and Moses are the chief exemplars, annul their own essence to the point where their entire essence is that of God. It is permissible to bow to them with this understanding. For this reason, the Rebbe is omniscient, omnipotent, and entirely without limits. He is ‘indistinguishable’ from God. Because he is a transparent window for pure divinity, a ‘man-God,’ ‘when you speak to him, you speak to God.’"


+ 383 In 28 June 1996, The Jewish Press published a paid advertisement signed by Rabbi Ahron Soloveichik. follows. "Before the passing of the Rebbe, I included myself among those who believe that the Rebbe was worthy of being Mashiach. And I strongly believe that had we, particularly the Orthodox community, been united, we would have merited to see the complete Redemption. Insofar as the belief held by many in Lubavitch - based in part on similar statements made by the Rebbe himself concerning his predecessor, the Previous Rebbe, including prominent rabbanim and roshei yeshiva - that the Rebbe can still be Mashiach in light of the Gemara in Sanhedrin, the Zohar, Abarbanel, Kisvei Arizal, S’dei Chemed, and other sources, it cannot be dismissed as a belief that is outside the pale of Orthodoxy. Any cynical attempt at utilizing a legitimate disagreement of interpretation concerning this matter in order to besmirch and to damage the Lubavitch movement that was, and continues to be, at the forefront of those who are battling the missionaries, assimilation, and indifference, can only contribute to the regrettable discord that already plagues the Jewish community, and particularly the Torah community."


+ 224 May my lord King David live forever! (Kings I 1:31)


+ 339 In the book "The Book Which Tells the Truth", Vorilhon stated that he had an alien visitation on 13 December 1973. According to Rael, in a secluded area within a French volcanic crater, an extraterrestrial being came out of a craft that had descended gently from the sky, and told him, in French, that he had come for the sole purpose of meeting with him. Rael said that he was given a message by this alien and told that it was his mission to pass this message on to the people of Earth.

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

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

+ 276 Yossei the son of Yoezer of Tzreidah would say: Let your home be a meeting place for the wise; dust yourself in the soil of their feet, and drink thirstily of their words. Pirkei Avot 1:4


+ 262 Joshua the son of Perachia would say: Assume for yourself a master, acquire for yourself a friend, and judge every man to the side of merit. Pirkei Avot 1:6

+ 290 Rabbi Judah HaNassi would say: Which is the right path for man to choose for himself? Whatever is harmonious for the one who does it, and harmonious for mankind. Be as careful with a minor mitzvah as with a major one, for you do not know the rewards of the mitzvot. Consider the cost of a mitzvah against its rewards, and the rewards of a transgression against its cost. Contemplate three things, and you will not come to the hands of transgression: Know what is above from you: a seeing eye, a listening ear, and all your deeds being inscribed in a book. Pirkei Avot 2:1

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


+ 315 Rabbi Eliezer would say: The honor of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own, and do not be easy to anger. Repent one day before your death. Asked his disciples: Does a man know on which day he will die? Said he to them: So being the case, he should repent today, for perhaps tomorrow he will die; hence, all his days are passed in a state of repentance. Indeed, so said Solomon in his wisdom (Ecclesiastes 9:8): 'At all times, your clothes should be white, and oil should not lack from your head'" (Talmud, Shabbat 153a). Pirkei Avot 2:10


+ 262 Rabbi Joshua would say: An evil eye, the evil inclination, and the hatred of one's fellows, drive a person from the world Pirkei Avot 2:11


+ 304 Rabbi Tarfon would say: The day is short, the work is much, the workers are lazy, the reward is great, and the Master is pressing. He would also say: It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it. If you have learned much Torah, you will be greatly rewarded, and your employer is trustworthy to pay you the reward of your labors. And know, that the reward of the righteous is in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 2:15-16


+ 279 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 317 There are four types of people: One who says, "What is mine is yours, and what is yours is mine" is a boor. One who says "What is mine is mine, and what is yours is yours" - this is a median characteristic; others say that this is the character of Sodom. One who says, "What is mine is yours, and what is yours is yours" is a chassid [pious person]. And one who says "What is mine is mine, and what is yours is mine" is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:10


+ 293 There are four types of temperaments. One who is easily angered and easily appeased--his virtue cancels his flaw. One whom it is difficult to anger and difficult to appease--his flaw cancels his virtue. One whom it is difficult to anger and is easily appeased, is a chassid. One who is easily angered and is difficult to appease, is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:11


+ 288 There are four types of student. One who is quick to understand and quick to forget - his flaw cancels his virtue. One who is slow to understand and slow to forget - his virtue cancels his flaw. One who is quick to understand and slow to forget - his is a good portion. One who is slow to understand and quick to forget - his is a bad portion. Pirkei Avot 5:12


+ 261 There are four types of contributors to charity. One who wants to give but does not want others to give--is begrudging of others. One who wants that others should give but does not want to give--begrudges himself. One who wants that he as well as others should give, is a chassid. One who want neither himself nor others to give, is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:13


+ 313 There are four types among those who attend the study hall. One who goes but does nothing - has gained the rewards of going. One who does study but does not go to the study hall - has gained the rewards of doing. One who goes and does, is a chassid. One who neither goes nor does, is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:14


+ 309 There are four types among those who sit before the sages: the sponge, the funnel, the strainer and the sieve. The sponge absorbs all. The funnel takes in at one end and lets it out the other. The strainer rejects the wine and retains the sediment. The sieve rejects the coarse flour and retains the fine flour. Pirkei Avot 5:15


+ 300 Moses received the Torah from Sinai and gave it over to Joshua. Joshua gave it over to the Elders, the Elders to the Prophets, and the Prophets gave it over to the Men of the Great Assembly. They [the Men of the Great Assembly] would always say these three things: Be cautious in judgment. Establish many pupils. And make a safety fence around the Torah. Pirkei Avot 1:1


+ 270 Shimon the Righteous was among the last surviving members of the Great assembly. He would say: The world stands on three things: Torah, the service of G-d, and deeds of kindness. Pirkei Avot 1:2


+ 317 Antignos of Socho received the tradition from Shimon the Righteous. He would say: Do not be as slaves, who serve their master for the sake of reward. Rather, be as slaves who serve their master not for the sake of reward. And the fear of Heaven should be upon you. Pirkei Avot 1:3


+ 259 Yossei the son of Yoezer of Tzreidah, and Yossei the son of Yochanan of Jerusalem, received the tradition from them. Yossei the son of Yoezer of Tzreidah would say: Let your home be a meeting place for the wise; dust yourself in the soil of their feet, and drink thirstily of their words. Pirkei Avot 1:4


+ 324 Yossei the son of Yochanan of Jerusalem would say: Let your home be wide open, and let the poor be members of your household. And do not engage in excessive conversation with a woman. This is said even regarding one's own wife--how much more so regarding the wife of another. Hence, the sages said: One who excessively converses with a woman causes evil to himself, neglects the study of Torah, and, in the end, inherits purgatory. Pirkei Avot 1:5


+ 281 Joshua the son of Perachia and Nitai the Arbelite received from them. Joshua the son of Perachia would say: Assume for yourself a master, acquire for yourself a friend, and judge every man to the side of merit. Pirkei Avot 1:6


+ 293 Nitai the Arbelite would say: Distance yourself from a bad neighbor, do not cleave to a wicked person, and do not abandon belief in retribution. Pirkei Avot 1:7


+ 297 Judah the son of Tabbai and Shimon the son of Shotach received from them. Judah the son of Tabbai would say: When sitting in judgement, do not act as a counselor-at-law. When the litigants stand before you, consider them both guilty; and when they leave your courtroom, having accepted the judgement, regard them as equally righteous. Pirkei Avot 1:8


+ 290 Shimon the son of Shotach would say: Increasingly cross-examine the witnesses. Be careful with your words, lest they learn from them how to lie. Pirkei Avot 1:9


+ 304 Shmaayah and Avtalyon received from them. Shmaayah would say: Love work, loath mastery over others, and avoid intimacy with the government. Pirkei Avot 1:10


+ 278 Avtalyon would say: Scholars, be careful with your words. For you may be exiled to a place inhabited by evil elements who will distort your words to suit their negative purposes. The disciples who come after you will then drink of these evil waters and be destroyed, and the Name of Heaven will be desecrated. Pirkei Avot 1:11


+ 317 Hillel and Shammai received from them. Hillel would say: Be of the disciples of Aaron--a lover of peace, a pursuer of peace, one who loves the creatures and draws them close to Torah. Pirkei Avot 1:12


+ 290 He would also say: One who advances his name, destroys his name. One who does not increase, diminishes. One who does not learn is deserving of death. And one who make personal use of the crown of Torah shall perish. Pirkei Avot 1:13


+ 283 He would also say: If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when? Pirkei Avot 1:14


+ 289 Shammai would say: Make your Torah study a permanent fixture of your life. Say little and do much. And receive every man with a pleasant countenance. Pirkei Avot 1:15


+ 277 Rabban Gamliel would say: Assume for yourself a master; stay away from doubt; and do not accustom yourself to tithe by estimation. Pirkei Avot 1:16


+ 284 His son, Shimon, would say: All my life I have been raised among the wise, and I have found nothing better for the body than silence. The essential thing is not study, but deed. And one who speaks excessively brings on sin. Pirkei Avot 1:17


+ 359 Rabbi Shimon the son of Gamliel would say: By three things is the world sustained: law, truth and peace. As is stated (Zachariah 8:16), "Truth, and a judgement of peace, you should administer at your [city] gates.'' Pirkei Avot 1:18


+ 295 Rabbi Judah HaNassi would say: Which is the right path for man to choose for himself? Whatever is harmonious for the one who does it, and harmonious for mankind. Be as careful with a minor mitzvah as with a major one, for you do not know the rewards of the mitzvot. Consider the cost of a mitzvah against its rewards, and the rewards of a transgression against its cost. Contemplate three things, and you will not come to the hands of transgression: Know what is above from you: a seeing eye, a listening ear, and all your deeds being inscribed in a book. Pirkei Avot 2:1


+ 287 Rabbi Yochanan said to them: Go and see which is the best trait for a person to acquire. Said Rabbi Eliezer: A good eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: A good friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: A good neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To see what is born [out of ones actions]. Said Rabbi Elazar: A good heart. Said He to them: I prefer the words of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. He said to them: Go and see which is the worst trait, the one that a person should most distance himself from. Said Rabbi Eliezer: An evil eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: An evil friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: An evil neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To borrow and not to repay; for one who borrows from man is as one who borrows from the Almighty, as is stated, ``The wicked man borrows and does not repay; but the righteous one is benevolent and gives'' (Psalms 37:21). Said Rabbi Elazar: An evil heart. Said He to them: I prefer the word of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. They would each say three things: Rabbi Eliezer would say: The honor of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own, and do not be easy to anger. Repent one day before your death.** Warm yourself by the fire of the sages, but be beware lest you be burned by its embers; for their bite is the bite of a fox, their sting is the sting of a scorpion, their hiss is the hiss a serpent, and all their words are like fiery coals. Pirkei Avot 2:10


+ 234 Rabbi Joshua would say: An evil eye, the evil inclination, and the hatred of one's fellows, drive a person from the world. Pirkei Avot 2:11


+ 305 Rabbi Yossei would say: The property of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own. Perfect yourself for the study of Torah, for it is not an inheritance to you. And all your deeds should be for the sake of Heaven. Pirkei Avot 2:12


+ 273 Rabbi Shimon would say: Be meticulous with the reading of the Shma and with prayer. When you pray, do not make your prayers routine, but [an entreaty of] mercy and a supplication before the Almighty, as is stated ``For He is benevolent and merciful, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness, and relenting of the evil decree'' (Joel 2:13). And do not be wicked in your own eyes. Pirkei Avot 2:13


+ 327 Rabbi Elazar would say: Be diligent in the study of Torah. Know what to answer a heretic. And know before whom you toil, and who is your employer who will repay you the reward of your labors. Pirkei Avot 2:14


+ 257 Rabbi Tarfon would say: The day is short, the work is much, the workers are lazy, the reward is great, and the Master is pressing. Pirkei Avot 2:15


+ 280 He would also say: It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it. If you have learned much Torah, you will be greatly rewarded, and your employer is trustworthy to pay you the reward of your labors. And know, that the reward of the righteous is in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 2:16


+ 248 Akavia the son of Mahalalel would say: Reflect upon three things and you will not come to the hands of transgression. Know from where you came, where you are going, and before whom you are destined to give a judgement and accounting. From where you came - from a putrid drop; where you are going - to a place of dust, maggots and worms; and before whom you are destined to give a judgement and accounting - before the supreme King of Kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. Pirkei Avot 3:1


+ 286 Rabbi Chanina, deputy to the kohanim, would say: Pray for the integrity of the government; for were it not for the fear of its authority, a man would swallow his neighbor alive. Rabbi Chanina son of Tradyon would say: Two who sit and no words of Torah pass between them, this is a session of scorners, as is stated, "And in a session of scorners he did not sit" (Psalms 1:1). But two who sit and exchange words of Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated, "Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard; and it was inscribed before Him in a book of remembrance for those who fear G-d and give thought to His name" (Malachi 3:16). From this, I know only concerning two individuals; how do I know that even a single individual who sits and occupies himself with the Torah, G-d designates reward for him? From the verse, "He sits alone in meditative stillness; indeed, he receives [reward] for it" (Lamentations 3:28). Pirkei Avot 3:2


+ 267 Rabbi Shimon would say: Three who eat at one table and do not speak words of Torah, it is as if they have eaten of idolatrous sacrifices; as is stated, "Indeed, all tables are filled with vomit and filth, devoid of the Omnipresent" (Isaiah 28:8). But three who eat at one table and speak words of Torah, it is as if they have eaten at G-d's table, as is stated, "And he said to me: This is the table that is before G-d" (Ezekiel 41:22). Pirkei Avot 3:3


+ 295 Rabbi Chalafta the son of Dosa of the village of Chanania would say: Ten who sit together and occupy themselves with Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated: "The Almighty stands in the congregation of G-d" (Psalms 82:1). And from where do we know that such is also the case with five? From the verse, "He established his band on earth" (Amos 9:6). And three? From the verse, "He renders judgement in the midst of the tribunal" (Psalms 82:1). And two? From the verse, "Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard" (Malachi 3:16). And from where do we know that such is the case even with a single individual? From the verse, "Every place where I have My name mentioned, I shall come to you and bless you" (Exodus 20:21). Pirkei Avot 3:6


+ 279 Rabbi Elazar of Bartosa would say: Give Him what is His, for you, and whatever is yours, are His. As David says: "For everything comes from You, and from Your own hand we give to You" (I Chronicles 29:14). Rabbi Yaakov would say: One who walks along a road and studies, and interrupts his studying to say, "How beautiful is this tree!", "How beautiful is this ploughed field!"---the Torah considers it as if he had forfeited his life. Pirkei Avot 3:7


+ 248 He would also say: One whose deeds exceed his wisdom, his wisdom endures. But one whose wisdom exceeds his deeds, his wisdom does not endure. He would also say: One who is pleasing to his fellow men, is pleasing to G-d. But one who is not pleasing to his fellow men, is not pleasing to G-d. Rabbi Dosa the son of Hurkinas would say: Morning sleep, noontime wine, children's talk and sitting at the meeting places of the ignoramus, drive a person from the world. Pirkei Avot 3:10


+ 285 Rabbi Elazar of Modi'in would say: One who profanes the kodoshim ("holy things" consecrated for the service of G-d in the Holy Temple), degrades the Festivals, humiliates his friend in public, abrogates the covenant of our father Abraham (i.e., circumcision), or who interprets the Torah contrary to its true intent---although he may possess Torah knowledge and good deeds, he has no share in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 3:11


+ 264 Rabbi Ishmael would say: Be yielding to a leader, affable to the black-haired, and receive every man with joy. Pirkei Avot 3:12


+ 274 Rabbi Akiva would say: Jesting and frivolity accustom a person to promiscuity. Tradition is a safety fence to Torah, tithing a safety fence to wealth, vows a safety fence for abstinence; a safety fence for wisdom is silence. Pirkei Avot 3:13


+ 339 He would also say: Beloved is man, for he was created in the image [of G-d]; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to him that he was created in the image, as it is says, "For in the image of G-d, He made man" (Genesis 9:6). Beloved are Israel, for they are called children of G-d; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they are called children of G-d, as it is stated: "You are children of the L-rd your G-d" (Deuteronomy 14:1). Beloved are Israel, for they were given a precious article; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they were given a precious article, as it is stated: "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it" (Proverbs 4:2). Pirkei Avot 3:14


+ 257 All is foreseen, and freedom of choice is granted. The world is judged with goodness, but in accordance with the amount of man's positive deeds. Pirkei Avot 3:15


+ 314 He would also say: Everything is placed in pledge, and a net is spread over all the living. The store is open, the storekeeper extends credit, the account-book lies open, the hand writes, and all who wish to borrow may come and borrow. The collection-officers make their rounds every day and exact payment from man, with his knowledge and without his knowledge. Their case is well founded, the judgement is a judgement of truth, and ultimately, all is prepared for the feast. Pirkei Avot 3:16


+ 305 Rabbi Eliezer the son of Azariah would say: If there is no Torah, there is no common decency; if there is no common decency, there is no Torah. If there is no wisdom, there is no fear of God; if there is no fear of God, there is no wisdom. If there is no applied knowledge, there is no analytical knowledge; if there is no analytical knowledge, there is no applied knowledge. If there is no flour, there is no Torah; if there is no Torah, there is no flour. He would also say: One whose wisdom is greater than his deeds, what is he comparable to? To a tree with many branches and few roots; comes a storm and uproots it, and turns it on its face. As is stated, "He shall be as a lone tree in a wasteland, and shall not see when good comes; he shall dwell parched in the desert, a salt land, uninhabited" (Jeremiah 17:6). But one whose deeds are greater than his wisdom, to what is he compared? To a tree with many roots and few branches, whom all the storms in the world cannot budge from its place. As is stated: "He shall be as a tree planted upon water, who spreads his roots by the river; who fears not when comes heat, whose leaf is ever lush; who worries not in a year of drought, and ceases not to yield fruit" (ibid., v. 8). Pirkei Avot 3:18


+ 286 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 260 Rabbi Meir would say: Engage minimally in business, and occupy yourself with Torah. Be humble before every man. If you neglect the Torah, there will be many more causes for neglect before you; if you toil much in Torah, there is much reward to give to you. Pirkei Avot 4:10


+ 281 Rabbi Eliezer the son of Yaakov would say: He who fulfills one mitzvah, acquires for himself one angel-advocate; he who commits one transgression, acquires against himself one angel-accuser. Repentance and good deeds are as a shield against retribution. Rabbi Yochanan the Sandal-Maker would say: Every gathering that is for the sake of Heaven, will endure; that is not for the sake of Heaven, will not endure. Pirkei Avot 4:11


+ 273 Rabbi Eliezer the son of Shamua would say: The dignity of your student should be as precious to you as your own; the dignity of your colleague, as your awe of your master; and your awe of your master as your awe of Heaven. Pirkei Avot 4:12


+ 274 Rabbi Judah would say: Be careful with your studies, for an error of learning is tantamount to a willful transgression. Rabbi Shimon would say: There are three crowns--the crown of Torah, the crown of priesthood and the crown of sovereignty--but the crown of good name surmounts them all. Pirkei Avot 4:13


+ 271 Rabbi Nehora'i would say: Exile yourself to a place of Torah; do not say that it will come after you, that your colleagues will help you retain it. Rely not on your own understanding. Pirkei Avot 4:14


+ 227 Rabbi Yannai would say: We have no comprehension of the tranquility of the wicked, nor of the suffering of the righteous. Rabbi Matya the son of Charash would say: Be first to greet every man. Be a tail to lions, rather than a head to foxes. Pirkei Avot 4:15


+ 303 Rabbi Yaakov would say: This world is comparable to the antechamber before the World to Come. Prepare yourself in the antechamber, so that you may enter the banquet hall. Pirkei Avot 4:16


+ 251 He would also say: A single moment of repentance and good deeds in this world is greater than all of the World to Come. And a single moment of bliss in the World to Come is greater than all of the present world. Pirkei Avot 4:17


+ 300 Rabbi Shimon the son of Elazar would say: Do not appease your friend at the height of his anger; do not comfort him while his dead still lies before him; do not ask him about his vow the moment he makes it; and do not endeavor to see him at the time of his degradation. Pirkei Avot 4:18


+ 273 Samuel the Small would say: "When your enemy falls, do not rejoice; when he stumbles, let your heart not be gladdened. Lest G-d see, and it will displeasing in His eyes, and He will turn His wrath from him [to you]" (Proverbs 24:17-18). Pirkei Avot 4:19


+ 264 Rabbi Elazar HaKapor would say: Envy, lust and honor drive a man from the world. Pirkei Avot 4:21


+ 260 The world was created with ten utterances. What does this come to teach us? Certainly, it could have been created with a single utterance. However, this is in order to make the wicked accountable for destroying a world that was created with ten utterances, and to reward the righteous for sustaining a world that was created with ten utterances. Pirkei Avot 5:1


+ 262 Ten miracles were performed for our forefathers in Egypt, and another ten at the sea. Ten afflictions were wrought by G-d upon the Egyptians in Egypt, and another ten at the sea. With ten tests our forefathers tested G-d in the desert, as is stated (Numbers 14:22), "They tested Me these ten times, and did not hearken to My voice." Pirkei Avot 5:4


+ 292 There are four types of people: One who says, "What is mine is yours, and what is yours is mine" is a boor. One who says "What is mine is mine, and what is yours is yours" - this is a median characteristic; others say that this is the character of a Sodomite. One who says, "What is mine is yours, and what is yours is yours" is a chassid (pious person). And one who says "What is mine is mine, and what is yours is mine" is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:10


+ 272 There are four types of temperaments. One who is easily angered and easily appeased - his virtue cancels his flaw. One whom it is difficult to anger and difficult to appease - his flaw cancels his virtue. One whom it is difficult to anger and is easily appeased, is a chassid. One who is easily angered and is difficult to appease, is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:11


+ 269 There are four types of student. One who is quick to understand and quick to forget - his flaw cancels his virtue. One who is slow to understand and slow to forget - his virtue cancels his flaw. One who is quick to understand and slow to forget - his is a good portion. One who is slow to understand and quick to forget--his is a bad portion. Pirkei Avot 5:12


+ 243 There are four types of contributors to charity. One who wants to give but does not want others to give - is begrudging of others. One who wants that others should give but does not want to give - begrudges himself. One who wants that he as well as others should give, is a chassid. One who want neither himself nor others to give, is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:13


+ 263 There are four types among those who attend the study hall. One who goes but does nothing--has gained the rewards of going. One who does [study] but does not go to the study hall - has gained the rewards of doing. One who goes and does, is a chassid. One who neither goes nor does, is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:14


+ 267 There are four types among those who sit before the sages: the sponge, the funnel, the strainer and the sieve. The sponge absorbs all. The funnel takes in at one end and lets it out the other. The strainer rejects the wine and retains the sediment. The sieve rejects the coarse flour and retains the fine flour. Pirkei Avot 5:15


+ 297 Any love that is dependent on something - when the thing ceases, the love also ceases. But a love that is not dependent on anything never ceases. What is [an example of] a love that is dependent on something? The love of Amnon for Tamar. And one that is not dependent on anything? The love of David and Jonathan. Pirkei Avot 5:16


+ 259 Any dispute that is for the sake of Heaven is destined to endure; one that is not for the sake of Heaven is not destined to endure. Which is a dispute that is for the sake of Heaven? The dispute(s) between Hillel and Shamai. Which is a dispute that is not for the sake of Heaven? The dispute of Korach and all his company. Pirkei Avot 5:17


+ 289 One who causes the community to be meritorious, no sin will come by his hand. One who causes the community to sin, is not given the opportunity to repent. Moses was meritorious and caused the community to be meritorious, so the community's merit is attributed to him; as is stated, "He did God's righteousness, and His laws with Israel" (Deuteronomy 33:21). Jeroboam the son of Nebat sinned and caused the community to sin, so the community's sin is attributed to him; as is stated, "For the sins of Jeroboam, which he sinned and caused Israel to sin" (I Kings 15:30). Pirkei Avot 5:18


+ 343 Whoever possesses the following three traits is of the disciples of our father Abraham; and whoever possesses the opposite three traits is of the disciples of the wicked Balaam. The disciples of our father Abraham have a good eye, a meek spirit and a humble soul. The disciples of the wicked Balaam have an evil eye, a haughty spirit and a gross soul. What is the difference between the disciples of our father Abraham and the disciples of the wicked Balaam? The disciples of our father Abraham benefit in this world and inherit the World To Come, and as is stated, "To bequeath to those who love Me there is, and their treasures I shall fill" (Proverbs 8:21). The disciples of the wicked Balaam inherit purgatory and descent into the pit of destruction, as is stated, "And You, G-d, shall cast them into the pit of destruction; bloody and deceitful men, they shall not attain half their days. And I shall trust in you" (ibid., 55:24). Pirkei Avot 5:19


+ 273 Ben Bag Bag would say: Delve and delve into it, for all is in it; see with it; grow old and worn in it; do not budge from it, for there is nothing better. Ben Hei Hei would say: According to the pain is the gain. Pirkei Avot 5:21


+ 341 The sages expounded in the language of the Mishnah (blessed is He who chose them and their learning): Rabbi Meir would say: Whoever studies Torah for Torah's sake alone, merits many things; not only that, but [the creation of] the entire world is worthwhile for him alone. He is called friend, beloved, lover of God, lover of humanity, rejoicer of God, rejoicer of humanity. The Torah enclothes him with humility and awe; makes him fit to be righteous, pious, correct and faithful; distances him from sin and brings him close to merit. From him, people enjoy counsel and wisdom, understanding and power, as is stated (Proverbs 8:14): "Mine are counsel and wisdom, I am understanding, mine is power." The Torah grants him sovereignty, dominion, and jurisprudence. The Torah's secrets are revealed to him, and he becomes as an ever-increasing wellspring and as an unceasing river. He becomes modest, patient and forgiving of insults. The Torah uplifts him and makes him greater than all creations. Pirkei Avot 6:1


+ 291 Said Rabbi Joshua the son of Levi: Every day, an echo resounds from Mount Horeb (Sinai) proclaiming and saying: "Woe is to the creatures who insult the Torah." For one who does not occupy himself in Torah is considered an outcast, as is stated (Proverbs 11:22), "A golden nose-ring in the snout of a swine, a beautiful woman bereft of reason." And it says (Exodus 32:16): "And the tablets are the work of God, and the writing is God's writing, engraved on the tablets"; read not "engraved" (charut) but "liberty" (chairut) - for there is no free individual, except for he who occupies himself with the study of Torah. And whoever occupies himself with the study of Torah is elevated, as is stated (Number 21:19), "And from the gift to Nahaliel, and from Nahaliel to The Heights." Pirkei Avot 6:2


+ 306 One who learns from his fellow a single chapter, or a single law, or a single verse, or a single word, or even a single letter, he must treat him with respect. For so we find with David, king of Israel, who did not learn anything from Achitofel except for two things alone, yet he called him his "master," his "guide" and his "intimate," as is stated (Psalms 55:14), "And you are a man of my worth, my guide and intimate friend." Surely we can infer a fortiori: if David, king of Israel, who learned nothing from Achitofel except for two things alone, nevertheless referred to him as his master, guide and intimate, it certainly goes without saying that one who learns from his fellow a single chapter, a law, a verse, a saying, or even a single letter, is obligated to revere him. And there is no reverence but Torah, as is stated (Proverbs 3:35; 28:10), "The sages shall inherit honor" "and the integral shall inherit good"; and there is no good but Torah, as is stated (ibid. 4:2), "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it." Pirkei Avot 6:3


+ 263 Such is the way of Torah: Bread with salt you shall eat, water in small measure you shall drink, and upon the ground you shall sleep; live a life of deprivation and toil in Torah. If so you do, "fortunate are you, and good is to you" (Psalms 128:2): fortunate are you in this world, and it is good to you in the World To Come. Pirkei Avot 6:4


+ 273 Great is Torah, for it gives life to its observers in this world, and in the World To Come. As is stated (Proverbs 4:22): "For they are life to he who finds them, and a healing to all his flesh." And it says (ibid. 3:8): "It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones." And it says (3:18): "She is a tree of life for those who hold fast to her, and happy are those who support her." And it says (1:9): "For they shall be a garland of grace for your head, and necklaces about your neck." And it says(4:9): "She shall give to your head a garland of grace, a crown of glory she shall grant you." And it says (9:11): "With me, your days shall be increased, and years of life shall be added to you." And it says (3:16): "Long days in her right hand; in her left, wealth and honor." And it says (3:2): "For long days, years of life and peace, they shall add to you." Pirkei Avot 6:7


+ 292 Rabbi Shimon the son of Judah would say in the name of Rabbi Shimon the son of Yochai: Beauty, strength, wealth, honor, wisdom, sageness, old age and children are becoming to the righteous and becoming to the world. As is stated (Proverbs 16:31): "Old age is a crown of beauty, to be found in the ways of righteousness." And it says (ibid. 20:29): "The beauty of youths is their strength, and the glory of sages is their age." And it says (ibid., 17:6): "The crown of sages are their grandchildren, and the beauty of children their fathers." And it says (Isaiah 24:23): "And the moon shall be abashed and the sun shamed, for the Lord of hosts has reigned in Zion, and before his elders is glory." Rabbi Shimon the son of Menasia would say: these seven qualities enumerated by the sages for the righteous were all realized in Rabbi [Judah HaNassi] and his sons. Pirkei Avot 6:8


+ 305 Said Rabbi Yossei the son of Kisma: Once, I was traveling and I encountered a man. He greeted me and I returned his greetings. Said he to me: "Rabbi, where are you from?" Said I to him: "From a great city of sages and scholars, am I." Said he to me: "Rabbi, would you like to dwell with us in our place? I will give you a million dinars of gold, precious stones and pearls." Said I to him: "If you were to give me all the silver, gold, precious stones and pearls in the world, I would not dwell anywhere but in a place of Torah. Indeed, so is written in the book of psalms by David the king of Israel: `I prefer the Torah of Your mouth over thousands in gold and silver' (Psalms 118:72). Furthermore, when a person passes from this world neither silver, nor gold, nor precious stones, nor pearls accompany him, only Torah and good deeds, as is stated (Proverbs 6:22): `When you go it will direct you, when you lie down it will watch over you, and when you awaken it shall be your speech.' `When you go it will direct you' - in this world; `when you lie down it will watch over you' - in the grave; `and when you awaken it shall be our speech' - in the World To Come. Also it says (Chaggai 2:8): `Mine is the silver and Mine is the gold, so says the L-rd of Hosts.' " Pirkei Avot 6:9


+ 332 God acquired five acquisitions in his world. These are: one acquisition is the Torah, one acquisition are the heavens and the earth, one acquisition is Abraham, one acquisition is the people of Israel, and one acquisition is the Holy Temple. The Torah, as it is written (Proverbs 8:22), "God acquired me as the beginning of His way, before His works of yore." The heavens and the earth, as it is written (Isaiah 66:1), "So says God: The heavens are My throne and the earth is My footstool; what house, then, can you build for Me, and where is My place of rest?"; and it says (Psalms 104:25), "How many are your works, O God, You have made them all with wisdom; the earth is filled with Your acquisitions." Abraham, as it is written (Genesis 14:19), "And he blessed him, and said: Blessed be Abram to God Most High, acquirer of heavens and earth." Israel, as it is written (Exodus 15:16), "Till Your nation, O God, shall pass, till this nation You have acquired shall pass"; and it says (Psalms 16:3), "To the holy who are upon earth, the noble ones, in whom is all My delight." The Holy Temple, as it is written (Exodus 15:17), "The base for Your dwelling that you, God, have achieved; the Sanctuary, O Lord, that Your hands have established"; and it says (Psalms 78:54), "And He brought them to His holy domain, this mount His right hand has acquired." Pirkei Avot 6:10


+ 282 Everything that God created in His world, He did not create but for His glory. As is stated (Isaiah 43:7): "All that is called by My name and for My glory, I created it, formed it, also I made it." And it says (Exodus 15:1): "God shall reign forever and ever." Pirkei Avot 6:11


+ 291 Rabbi Eliezer says that we shouldn't delay doing teshuva (see tractate Shabbat 153a), for one never knows if he or she will get another chance. The three commodities that we all need to stock up on today are teshuva (penitence), emuna (faith), and kedusha (holiness) - once Mashiach comes, everything else will be worthless.


+ 225 Gam zu l'tova. This too is for the good. Nachum Ish Gamzu, Talmud, Taanit, 21a


+ 212 If I am not for me, who is for me; and if I am only for myself, what am I. And if not now, when? – Hillel, Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14


+ 266 Who is wise? One who learns from every man… Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations… Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot… Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. Ben Zoma, Ethics of the Fathers, 4:1


+ 243 Yeshuat Hashem k’heref ayin. The salvation of God is like the blink of an eye. Pesikta Zutreta, Esther 4:17.


+ 269 I will insist the Hebrews have [contributed] more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations ... They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern. John Adams, Second President of the United States (From a letter to F. A. Van der Kemp [Feb. 16, 1808] Pennsylvania Historical Society)


+ 279 This is an exceedingly strange development, unexpected by all but the theologians. They have always accepted the word of the Bible: In the beginning God created heaven and earth… But for the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; and as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries. - Robert Jastrow. God and the Astronomers [New York: W.W. Norton and Co., 1978], 116. Professor Jastrow was the founder of NASA’s Goddard Institute, now director of the Mount Wilson Institute and its observatory.


+ 317 If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky way. properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality? Mark Twain (“Concerning The Jews,” Harper’s Magazine, 1899 see The Complete Essays of Mark Twain, Doubleday [1963] pg. 249)


+ 257 “It is against their own insoluble problem of being human that the dull and base in humanity are in revolt in anti-Semitism. Judaism, nevertheless, together with Hellenism and Christianity is an inalienable component of our Christian Western civilization, the eternal “call to Sinai” against which humanity again and again rebels.” - Herman Rauschning, The Beast From the Abyss, pp. 155-56


+ 320 These are the wise words of Solomon son of David, king of Israel. Mishlei 1:1


+ 258 They teach wisdom and self-control; they will help you understand wise words. Mishlei 1:2


+ 232 They will teach you how to be wise and self-controlled and will teach you to do what is honest and fair and right. Mishlei 1:3


+ 225 They make the uneducated wise and give knowledge and sense to the young. Mishlei 1:4


+ 243 Wise people can also listen and learn; even they can find good advice in these words. Mishlei 1:5


+ 210 Then anyone can understand wise words and stories, the words of the wise and their riddles. Mishlei 1:6


+ 245 Knowledge begins with respect for the Lord, but fools hate wisdom and discipline. Mishlei 1:7


+ 273 My child, listen to your father’s teaching and do not forget your mother’s advice. Mishlei 1:8


+ 239 Their teaching will be like flowers in your hair or a necklace around your neck. Mishlei 1:9


+ 211 My child, if sinners try to lead you into sin, do not follow them. Mishlei 1:10


+ 247 They will say, Come with us. Let’s ambush and kill someone; let’s attack some innocent people just for fun. Mishlei 1:11


+ 261 Let’s swallow them alive, as death does; let’s swallow them whole, as the grave does. Mishlei 1:12


+ 240 We will take all kinds of valuable things and fill our houses with stolen goods. Mishlei 1:13


+ 257 Come join us, and we will share with you stolen goods. Mishlei 1:14


+ 226 My child, do not go along with them; do not do what they do. Mishlei 1:15


+ 178 They are eager to do evil and are quick to kill. Mishlei 1:16


+ 212 It is useless to spread out a net right where the birds can see it. Mishlei 1:17


+ 224 But sinners will fall into their own traps; they will only catch themselves! Mishlei 1:18


+ 213 All greedy people end up this way; greed kills selfish people. Mishlei 1:19


+ 220 Wisdom is like a woman shouting in the street; she raises her voice in the city squares. Mishlei 1:20


+ 211 She cries out in the noisy street and shouts at the city gates: Mishlei 1:21


+ 222 You fools, how long will you be foolish? How long will you make fun of wisdom and hate knowledge? Mishlei 1:22


+ 247 If only you had listened when I corrected you, I would have told you what’s in my heart; I would have told you what I am thinking. Mishlei 1:23


+ 227 I called, but you refused to listen; I held out my hand, but you paid no attention. Mishlei 1:24


+ 203 You did not follow my advice and did not listen when I corrected you. Mishlei 1:25


+ 266 So I will laugh when you are in trouble. I will make fun when disaster strikes you, Mishlei 1:26


+ 345 When disaster comes over you like a storm, when trouble strikes you like a whirlwind, when pain and trouble overwhelm you. Mishlei 1:27


+ 272 Then you will call to me, but I will not answer. You will look for me, but you will not find me. Mishlei 1:28


+ 234 It is because you rejected knowledge and did not choose to respect the Lord. Mishlei 1:29


+ 215 You did not accept my advice, and you rejected my correction. Mishlei 1:30


+ 214 So you will get what you deserve; you will get what you planned for others. Mishlei 1:31


+ 227 Fools will die because they refuse to listen; they will be destroyed because they do not care. Mishlei 1:32


+ 224 But those who listen to me will live in safety and be at peace, without fear of injury. Mishlei 1:33


+ 229 My child, listen to what I say and remember what I command you. Mishlei 2:1


+ 239 Wisdom will come into your mind, and knowledge will be pleasing to you. Mishlei 2:10


+ 208 Good sense will protect you; understanding will guard you. Mishlei 2:11


+ 222 It will keep you from the wicked, from those whose words are bad, Mishlei 2:12


+ 213 Who don’t do what is right but what is evil. Mishlei 2:13


+ 221 They enjoy doing wrong and are happy to do what is crooked and evil. Mishlei 2:14


+ 277 What they do is wrong, and their ways are dishonest. Mishlei 2:15


+ 245 It will save you from the unfaithful wife who tries to lead you into adultery with pleasing words. Mishlei 2:16


+ 260 She leaves the husband she married when she was young. She ignores the promise she made before God. Mishlei 2:17


+ 211 Those who are honest will live in the land, and those who are innocent will remain in it. Mishlei 2:21


+ 202 My child, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in mind. Mishlei 3:1


+ 244 Then your barns will be full, and your wine barrels will overflow with new wine. Mishlei 3:10


+ 226 My child, do not reject the Lord’s discipline, and don’t get angry when he corrects you. Mishlei 3:11


+ 263 The Lord corrects those he loves, just as parents correct the child they delight in. Mishlei 3:12


+ 222 Happy is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gets understanding. Mishlei 3:13


+ 222 Wisdom is worth more than silver; it brings more profit than gold. Mishlei 3:14


+ 282 Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you could want is equal to it. Mishlei 3:15


+ 253 With her right hand wisdom offers you a long life, and with her left hand she gives you riches and honor. Mishlei 3:16


+ 233 Wisdom will make your life pleasant and will bring you peace. Mishlei 3:17


+ 233 As a tree produces fruit, wisdom gives life to those who use it, and everyone who uses it will be happy. Mishlei 3:18


+ 216 The Lord made the earth, using his wisdom. He set the sky in place, using his understanding. Mishlei 3:19


+ 243 My child, hold on to wisdom and good sense. Don’t let them out of your sight. Mishlei 3:21


+ 193 Don’t be jealous of those who use violence, and don’t choose to be like them. Mishlei 3:31


+ 216 My children, listen to your father’s teaching; pay attention so you will understand. Mishlei 4:1


+ 227 My child, listen and accept what I say. Then you will have a long life. Mishlei 4:10


+ 254 I am guiding you in the way of wisdom, and I am leading you on the right path. Mishlei 4:11


+ 445 Nothing will hold you back; you will not be overwhelmed. Mishlei 4:12


+ 265 Always remember what you have been taught, and don’t let go of it. Keep all that you have learned; it is the most important thing in life. Mishlei 4:13


+ 296 Don’t follow the ways of the wicked; don’t do what evil people do. Mishlei 4:14


+ 218 Avoid their ways, and don’t follow them. Stay away from them and keep on going, Mishlei 4:15


+ 271 Because they cannot sleep until they do evil. They cannot rest until they harm someone. Mishlei 4:16


+ 238 They feast on wickedness and cruelty as if they were eating bread and drinking wine. Mishlei 4:17


+ 256 The way of the good person is like the light of dawn, growing brighter and brighter until full daylight. Mishlei 4:18


+ 219 But the wicked walk around in the dark; they can’t even see what makes them stumble. Mishlei 4:19


+ 231 Don’t ever forget my words; keep them always in mind. Mishlei 4:21


+ 200 My son, pay attention to my wisdom; listen to my words of understanding. Mishlei 5:1


+ 230 Strangers will enjoy your wealth, and what you worked so hard for will go to someone else. Mishlei 5:10


+ 215 You will groan at the end of your life when your health is gone. Mishlei 5:11


+ 230 Then you will say, “I hated being told what to do! I would not listen to correction! Mishlei 5:12


+ 226 I would not listen to my teachers or pay attention to my instructors. Mishlei 5:13


+ 218 I came close to being completely ruined in front of a whole group of people.” Mishlei 5:14


+ 213 Be faithful to your own wife, just as you drink water from your own well. Mishlei 5:15


+ 272 Do not pour your water in the streets; do not give your love to just any woman. Mishlei 5:16


+ 230 These things are yours alone and shouldn’t be shared with strangers. Mishlei 5:17


+ 231 Be happy with the wife you married when you were young. She gives you joy, as your fountain gives you water. Mishlei 5:18


+ 267 She is as lovely and graceful as a deer. Let her love always make you happy; let her love always hold you captive. Mishlei 5:19


+ 227 The Lord sees everything you do, and he watches where you go. Mishlei 5:21


+ 229 My child, be careful about giving a guarantee for somebody else’s loan, about promising to pay what someone else owes. Mishlei 6:1


+ 242 You sleep a little; you take a nap. You fold your hands and lie down to rest. Mishlei 6:10


+ 226 So you will be as poor as if you had been robbed; you will have as little as if you had been held up. Mishlei 6:11


+ 230 Some people are wicked and no good. They go around telling lies, Mishlei 6:12


+ 210 Winking with their eyes, tapping with their feet, and making signs with their fingers. Mishlei 6:13


+ 235 They make evil plans in their hearts and are always starting arguments. Mishlei 6:14


+ 246 So trouble will strike them in an instant; suddenly they will be so hurt no one can help them. Mishlei 6:15


+ 214 There are six things the Lord hates. There are seven things he cannot stand: Mishlei 6:16


+ 255 A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that kill innocent people, Mishlei 6:17


+ 217 A mind that thinks up evil plans, feet that are quick to do evil, Mishlei 6:18


+ 186 A witness who lies, and someone who starts arguments among families. Mishlei 6:19


+ 220 Keep their words in mind forever as though you had them tied around your neck. Mishlei 6:21


+ 207 But if he is caught, he must pay back seven times what he stole, and it may cost him everything he owns. Mishlei 6:31


+ 224 My son, remember what I say, and treasure my commands. Mishlei 7:1


+ 227 Then the woman approached him, dressed like a prostitute and planning to trick him. Mishlei 7:10


+ 197 She was loud and stubborn and never stayed at home. Mishlei 7:11


+ 215 She was always out in the streets or in the city squares, waiting around on the corners of the streets. Mishlei 7:12


+ 218 She grabbed him and kissed him. Without shame she said to him, Mishlei 7:13


+ 236 I made my fellowship offering and took some of the meat home. Today I have kept my special promises. Mishlei 7:14


+ 203 So I have come out to meet you; I have been looking for you and have found you. Mishlei 7:15


+ 191 I have covered my bed with colored sheets from Egypt. Mishlei 7:16


+ 211 I have made my bed smell sweet with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. Mishlei 7:17


+ 368 Come, let’s make love until morning. Let’s enjoy each other’s love. Mishlei 7:18


+ 224 My husband is not home; he has gone on a long trip. Mishlei 7:19


+ 275 By her clever words she made him give in; by her pleasing words she led him into doing wrong. Mishlei 7:21


+ 271 Wisdom calls to you like someone shouting; understanding raises her voice. Mishlei 8:1


+ 210 Choose my teachings instead of silver, and knowledge rather than the finest gold. Mishlei 8:10


+ 202 Wisdom is more precious than rubies. Nothing you could want is equal to it. Mishlei 8:11


+ 240 I am wisdom, and I have good judgment. I also have knowledge and good sense. Mishlei 8:12


+ 320 Fear of the Lord is to hate evil, haughtiness, pride, the way of evil, and a perverse mouth; these I hate. Mishlei 8:13


+ 195 I have good sense and advice, and I have understanding and power. Mishlei 8:14


+ 196 I help kings to govern and rulers to make fair laws. Mishlei 8:15


+ 201 Princes use me to lead, and so do all important people who judge fairly. Mishlei 8:16


+ 234 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. Mishlei 8:17


+ 205 Riches and honor are mine to give. So are wealth and lasting success. Mishlei 8:18


+ 200 What I give is better than the finest gold, better than the purest silver. Mishlei 8:19


+ 237 I give wealth to those who love me, filling their houses with treasures. Mishlei 8:21


+ 198 Playing in the habitable world of His earth, and having my delights with the children of man. Mishlei 8:31


+ 199 Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn her seven pillars. Mishlei 9:1


+ 211 The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord, and the knowledge of the holy ones is understanding. Mishlei 9:10


+ 225 For with me shall your days increase, and they will add to you years of life. Mishlei 9:11


+ 201 If you have become wise, you have become wise for yourself, and if you scorn, you will bear it alone. Mishlei 9:12


+ 201 The woman of folly is turbulent; she is simple and knows nothing. Mishlei 9:13


+ 225 She sits at the entrance of her house on a chair on the heights of the city, Mishlei 9:14


+ 225 To call the passersby, who are going straight on their ways, Mishlei 9:15


+ 195 "Whoever is simple, let him turn in here, and whoever is devoid of sense," and she says to him, Mishlei 9:16


+ 212 "Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant." Mishlei 9:17


+ 214 But he does not know that shades are there; her guests are in the depths of the grave. Mishlei 9:18


+ 225 Proverbs of Solomon: A wise son makes his father happy, but a foolish son is the grief of his mother. Mishlei 10:1


+ 227 A wink may get you into trouble, and foolish talk will lead to your ruin. Mishlei 10:10


+ 226 The words of a good person give life, like a fountain of water, but the words of the wicked contain nothing but violence. Mishlei 10:11


+ 221 Hatred stirs up trouble, but love forgives all wrongs. Mishlei 10:12


+ 210 Wise people speak with understanding, but people without wisdom should be punished. Mishlei 10:13


+ 197 The wise do not tell everything they know, but the foolish talk too much and are ruined. Mishlei 10:14


+ 227 Having lots of money protects the rich, but having no money destroys the poor. Mishlei 10:15


+ 211 Good people are rewarded with life, but evil people are paid with punishment. Mishlei 10:16


+ 222 Whoever accepts correction is on the way to life, but whoever ignores correction will lead others away from life. Mishlei 10:17


+ 183 Whoever hides hate is a liar. Whoever tells lies is a fool. Mishlei 10:18


+ 234 If you talk a lot, you are sure to sin; if you are wise, you will keep quiet. Mishlei 10:19


+ 206 The words of a good person are like pure silver, but an evil person’s thoughts are worth very little. Mishlei 10:20


+ 218 Good people’s words will help many others, but fools will die because they don’t have wisdom. Mishlei 10:21


+ 233 The Lord’s blessing brings wealth, and no sorrow comes with it. Mishlei 10:22


+ 214 A foolish person enjoys doing wrong, but a person with understanding enjoys doing what is wise. Mishlei 10:23


+ 196 Evil people will get what they fear most, but good people will get what they want most. Mishlei 10:24


+ 205 A storm will blow the evil person away, but a good person will always be safe. Mishlei 10:25


+ 202 A lazy person affects the one he works for like vinegar on the teeth or smoke in the eyes. Mishlei 10:26


+ 217 Whoever respects the Lord will have a long life, but the life of an evil person will be cut short. Mishlei 10:27


+ 281 A good person can look forward to happiness, but an evil person can expect nothing. Mishlei 10:28


+ 201 The Lord will protect good people but will ruin those who do evil. Mishlei 10:29


+ 212 Good people will always be safe, but evil people will not remain in the land. Mishlei 10:30


+ 213 A good person says wise things, but a liar’s tongue will be stopped. Mishlei 10:31


+ 199 Good people know the right thing to say, but evil people only tell lies. Mishlei 10:32


+ 192 The Lord hates dishonest scales, but he is pleased with honest weights. Mishlei 11:1


+ 219 Pride leads only to shame; it is wise to be humble. Mishlei 11:2


+ 265 Good people will be guided by honesty; dishonesty will destroy those who are not trustworthy. Mishlei 11:3


+ 217 Riches will not help when it’s time to die, but right living will save you from death. Mishlei 11:4


+ 217 The goodness of the innocent makes life easier, but the wicked will be destroyed by their wickedness. Mishlei 11:5


+ 220 Doing right brings freedom to honest people, but those who are not trustworthy will be caught by their own desires. Mishlei 11:6

+ 240 The person who tells one side of a story seems right, until someone else comes and asks questions. Mishlei 18:17


+ 210 Throwing lots can settle arguments and keep the two sides from fighting. Mishlei 18:18

+ 237 Many people want to please a leader, and everyone is friends with those who give gifts. Mishlei 19:6


+ 242 Poor people’s relatives avoid them; even their friends stay far away. They run after them, begging, but they are gone. Mishlei 19:7

+ 227 People with quick tempers will have to pay for it. If you help them out once, you will have to do it again. Mishlei 19:19


+ 262 Listen to advice and accept correction, and in the end you will be wise. Mishlei 19:20


+ 244 People can make all kinds of plans, but only the Lord’s plan will happen. Mishlei 19:21


+ 259 People want others to be loyal, so it is better to be poor than to be a liar. Mishlei 19:22


+ 206 Those who respect the Lord will live and be satisfied, unbothered by trouble. Mishlei 19:23


+ 212 Though the lazy person puts his hand in the dish, he won’t lift the food to his mouth. Mishlei 19:24


+ 243 Whip those who make fun of wisdom, and perhaps foolish people will gain some wisdom. Correct those with understanding, and they will gain knowledge. Mishlei 19:25


+ 213 A child who robs his father and sends away his mother brings shame and disgrace on himself. Mishlei 19:26


+ 247 Don’t stop listening to correction, my child, or you will forget what you have already learned. Mishlei 19:27


+ 244 An evil witness makes fun of fairness, and wicked people love what is evil. Mishlei 19:28


+ 228 People who make fun of wisdom will be punished, and the backs of foolish people will be beaten. Mishlei 19:29


+ 225 Wine and beer make people loud and uncontrolled; it is not wise to get drunk on them. Mishlei 20:1


+ 226 The Lord hates both these things: dishonest weights and dishonest measures. Mishlei 20:10


+ 237 Even children are known by their behavior; their actions show if they are innocent and good. Mishlei 20:11


+ 229 The Lord has made both these things: ears to hear and eyes to see. Mishlei 20:12


+ 234 If you love to sleep, you will be poor. If you stay awake, you will have plenty of food. Mishlei 20:13


+ 243 Buyers say, “This is bad. It’s no good.” Then they go away and brag about what they bought. Mishlei 20:14


+ 232 There is gold and plenty of rubies, but only a few people speak with knowledge. Mishlei 20:15


+ 235 Take the coat of someone who promises to pay a stranger’s debts, and keep it until he pays what the stranger owes. Mishlei 20:16


+ 190 Stolen food may taste sweet at first, but later it will feel like a mouth full of gravel. Mishlei 20:17


+ 213 Get advice if you want your plans to work. If you go to war, get the advice of others. Mishlei 20:18


+ 213 Gossips can’t keep secrets, so avoid people who talk too much. Mishlei 20:19


+ 238 Wealth inherited quickly in the beginning will do you no good in the end. Mishlei 20:21


+ 197 The Lord can control a king’s mind as he controls a river; he can direct it as he pleases. Mishlei 21:1


+ 228 You may believe you are doing right, but the Lord judges your reasons. Mishlei 21:2


+ 206 Doing what is right and fair is more important to the Lord than sacrifices. Mishlei 21:3


+ 219 Proud looks, proud thoughts, and evil actions are sin. Mishlei 21:4


+ 223 The plans of hard-working people earn a profit, but those who act too quickly become poor. Mishlei 21:5


+ 239 Wealth that comes from telling lies vanishes like a mist and leads to death. Mishlei 21:6


+ 213 The violence of the wicked will destroy them, because they refuse to do what is right. Proverbs 21:7


+ 216 Guilty people live dishonest lives, but honest people do right. Mishlei 21:8


+ 235 It is better to live in a corner on the roof n than inside the house with a quarreling wife. Mishlei 21:9


+ 202 Evil people only want to harm others. Their neighbors get no mercy from them. Mishlei 21:10


+ 212 If you punish those who make fun of wisdom, a foolish person may gain some wisdom. But if you teach the wise, they will get knowledge. Mishlei 21:11


+ 243 God, who is always right, watches the house of the wicked and brings ruin on every evil person. Mishlei 21:12


+ 235 Whoever ignores the poor when they cry for help will also cry for help and not be answered. Mishlei 21:13


+ 216 A secret gift will calm an angry person; a present given in secrecy will quiet great anger. Mishlei 21:14


+ 207 When justice is done, good people are happy, but evil people are ruined. Mishlei 21:15


+ 190 Whoever does not use good sense will end up among the dead. Mishlei 21:16


+ 250 Whoever loves pleasure will become poor; whoever loves wine and perfume will never be rich. Mishlei 21:17


+ 212 Wicked people will suffer instead of good people, and those who cannot be trusted will suffer instead of those who do right. Mishlei 21:18


+ 208 It is better to live alone in the desert than with a quarreling and complaining wife. Mishlei 21:19


+ 225 Wise people’s houses are full of the best foods and olive oil, but fools waste everything they have. Mishlei 21:20


+ 229 Whoever tries to live right and be loyal finds life, success, and honor. Mishlei 21:21


+ 208 A wise person can defeat a city full of warriors and tear down the defenses they trust in. Mishlei 21:22


+ 204 Those who are careful about what they say keep themselves out of trouble. Mishlei 21:23


+ 241 People who act with stubborn pride are called “proud,” “bragger,” and “mocker.” Mishlei 21:24


+ 198 Lazy people’s desire for sleep will kill them, because they refuse to work. Mishlei 21:25


+ 246 All day long they wish for more, but good people give without holding back. Mishlei 21:26


+ 250 The Lord hates sacrifices brought by evil people, particularly when they offer them for the wrong reasons. Mishlei 21:27


+ 190 A lying witness will be forgotten, but a truthful witness will speak on. Mishlei 21:28


+ 221 Wicked people are stubborn, but good people think carefully about what they do. Mishlei 21:29


+ 196 There is no wisdom, understanding, or advice that can succeed against the Lord. Mishlei 21:30


+ 245 You can get the horses ready for battle, but it is the Lord who gives the victory. Mishlei 21:31


+ 227 Being respected is more important than having great riches. To be well thought of is better than silver or gold. Mishlei 22:1


+ 248 Get rid of the one who makes fun of wisdom. Then fighting, quarrels, and insults will stop. Mishlei 22:10


+ 234 Whoever loves pure thoughts and kind words will have even the king as a friend. Mishlei 22:11


+ 183 The Lord guards knowledge, but he destroys false words. Mishlei 22:12


+ 205 The lazy person says, “There’s a lion outside! I might get killed out in the street!” Mishlei 22:13


+ 216 The words of an unfaithful wife are like a deep trap. Those who make the Lord angry will get caught by them. Mishlei 22:14


+ 233 Every child is full of foolishness, but punishment can get rid of it. Mishlei 22:15


+ 241 Whoever gets rich by mistreating the poor, and gives presents to the wealthy, will become poor. Mishlei 22:16


+ 242 Listen carefully to what wise people say; pay attention to what I am teaching you. Mishlei 22:17


+ 227 It will be good to keep these things in mind so that you are ready to repeat them. Mishlei 22:18


+ 194 I am teaching them to you now so that you will put your trust in the Lord. Mishlei 22:19


+ 233 I am teaching you true and reliable words so that you can give true answers to anyone who asks. Mishlei 22:21


+ 245 If you sit down to eat with a ruler, notice the food that is in front of you. Mishlei 23:1


+ 224 Don’t move an old stone that marks a border, and don’t take fields that belong to orphans. Mishlei 23:10


+ 198 God, their defender, is strong; he will take their side against you. Mishlei 23:11


+ 212 Remember what you are taught, and listen carefully to words of knowledge. Mishlei 23:12


+ 201 Don’t fail to punish children. If you spank them, they won’t die. Mishlei 23:13


+ 209 If you spank them, you will save them from death. Mishlei 23:14


+ 211 My child, if you are wise, then I will be happy. Mishlei 23:15


+ 201 I will be so pleased if you speak what is right. Mishlei 23:16


+ 199 Don’t envy sinners, but always respect the Lord. Mishlei 23:17


+ 215 Then you will have hope for the future, and your wishes will come true. Mishlei 23:18


+ 212 Listen, my child, and be wise. Keep your mind on what is right. Mishlei 23:19


+ 238 Those who drink and eat too much become poor. They sleep too much and end up wearing rags. Mishlei 23:21


+ 223 Don’t stare at the wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly. Mishlei 23:31


+ 212 Don’t envy evil people or try to be friends with them. Mishlei 24:1


+ 223 If you give up when trouble comes, it shows that you are weak. Mishlei 24:10


+ 199 Save those who are being led to their death; rescue those who are about to be killed. Mishlei 24:11


+ 221 If you say, “We don’t know anything about this,” God, who knows what’s in your mind, will notice. Mishlei 24:12


+ 206 Save those who are being led to their death; rescue those who are about to be killed. Mishlei 24:11


+ 250 If you say, “We don’t know anything about this,” God, who knows what’s in your mind, will notice. He is watching you, and he will know. He will reward each person for what he has done. Mishlei 24:12


+ 245 My child, eat honey because it is good. Honey from the honeycomb tastes sweet. Mishlei 24:13


+ 244 In the same way, wisdom is pleasing to you. If you find it, you have hope for the future, and your wishes will come true. Mishlei 24:14


+ 213 Don’t be wicked and attack a good family’s house; don’t rob the place where they live. Mishlei 24:15


+ 235 Even though good people may be bothered by trouble seven times, they are never defeated, but the wicked are overwhelmed by trouble. Mishlei 24:16


+ 243 Don’t be happy when your enemy is defeated; don’t be glad when he is overwhelmed. Mishlei 24:17


+ 212 The Lord will notice and be displeased. He may not be angry with them anymore. Mishlei 24:18


+ 220 Don’t envy evil people, and don’t be jealous of the wicked. Mishlei 24:19


+ 300 My child, respect the Lord and the king. Don’t join those people who refuse to obey them. Mishlei 24:21


+ 237 Thorns had grown up everywhere. The ground was covered with weeds, and the stone walls had fallen down. Mishlei 24:31


+ 250 These are more wise sayings of Solomon, copied by the men of Hezekiah king of Judah. Mishlei 25:1


+ 210 Whoever hears it might shame you, and you might not ever be respected again. Mishlei 25:10


+ 216 The right word spoken at the right time is as beautiful as gold apples in a silver bowl. Mishlei 25:11


+ 190 Trustworthy messengers refresh those who send them, like the coolness of snow in the summertime. Mishlei 25:13


+ 229 People who brag about gifts they never give are like clouds and wind that give no rain. Mishlei 25:14


+ 215 With patience you can convince a ruler, and a gentle word can get through to the hard-headed. Mishlei 25:15


+ 192 If you find honey, don’t eat too much, or it will make you throw up. Mishlei 25:16


+ 206 Don’t go to your neighbor’s house too often; too much of you will make him hate you. Mishlei 25:17


+ 230 When you lie about your neighbors, it hurts them as much as a club, a sword, or a sharp arrow. Mishlei 25:18


+ 231 Trusting unfaithful people when you are in trouble is like eating with a broken tooth or walking with a crippled foot. Mishlei 25:19


+ 226 If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him a drink. Mishlei 25:21


+ 236 It shouldn’t snow in summer or rain at harvest. Neither should a foolish person ever be honored. Mishlei 26:1


+ 194 Hiring a foolish person or anyone just passing by is like an archer shooting at just anything. Mishlei 26:10


+ 197 A fool who repeats his foolishness is like a dog that goes back to what it has thrown up. Mishlei 26:11


+ 212 There is more hope for a foolish person than for those who think they are wise. Mishlei 26:12


+ 196 The lazy person says, “There’s a lion in the road! There’s a lion in the streets!” Mishlei 26:13


+ 238 Like a door turning back and forth on its hinges, the lazy person turns over and over in bed. Mishlei 26:14


+ 222 Lazy people may put their hands in the dish, but they are too tired to lift the food to their mouths. Mishlei 26:15


+ 220 The lazy person thinks he is wiser than seven people who give sensible answers. Mishlei 26:16


+ 217 Interfering in someone else’s quarrel as you pass by is like grabbing a dog by the ears. Mishlei 26:17


+ 217 Like a madman shooting deadly, burning arrows Mishlei 26:18


+ 218 Is the one who tricks a neighbor and then says, I was just joking. Mishlei 26:19


+ 246 Just as charcoal and wood keep a fire going, a quarrelsome person keeps an argument going. Mishlei 26:21


+ 206 Don’t brag about tomorrow; you don’t know what may happen then. Mishlei 27:1


+ 223 Don’t forget your friend or your parent’s friend. Don’t always go to your family for help when trouble comes. A neighbor close by is better than a family far away. Mishlei 27:10


+ 209 Be wise, my child, and make me happy. Then I can respond to any insult. Mishlei 27:11


+ 223 The wise see danger ahead and avoid it, but fools keep going and get into trouble. Mishlei 27:12


+ 262 Take the coat of someone who promises to pay a stranger’s loan, and keep it until he pays what the stranger owes. Mishlei 27:13


+ 211 If you loudly greet your neighbor early in the morning, he will think of it as a curse. Mishlei 27:14


+ 210 A quarreling wife is as bothersome as a continual dripping on a rainy day. Mishlei 27:15


+ 227 Stopping her is like stopping the wind or trying to grab oil in your hand. Mishlei 27:16


+ 219 As iron sharpens iron, so people can improve each other. Mishlei 27:17


+ 213 Whoever tends a fig tree gets to eat its fruit, and whoever takes care of his master will receive honor. Mishlei 27:18


+ 230 As water reflects your face, so your mind shows what kind of person you are. Mishlei 27:19


+ 269 A hot furnace tests silver and gold, and people are tested by the praise they receive. Mishlei 27:21


+ 220 Evil people run even though no one is chasing them, but good people are as brave as a lion. Mishlei 28:1


+ 262 Those who lead good people to do wrong will be ruined by their own evil, but the innocent will be rewarded with good things. Mishlei 28:10


+ 208 Rich people may think they are wise, but the poor with understanding will prove them wrong. Mishlei 28:11


+ 211 When good people triumph, there is great happiness, but when the wicked get control, everybody hides. Mishlei 28:12


+ 209 If you hide your sins, you will not succeed. If you confess and reject them, you will receive mercy. Mishlei 28:13


+ 234 Those who are always respectful will be happy, but those who are stubborn will get into trouble. Mishlei 28:14


+ 232 A wicked ruler is as dangerous to poor people as a roaring lion or a charging bear. Mishlei 28:15


+ 214 A ruler without wisdom will be cruel, but the one who refuses to take dishonest money will rule a long time. Mishlei 28:16


+ 212 Don’t help those who are guilty of murder; let them run until they die. Mishlei 28:17


+ 220 Innocent people will be kept safe, but those who are dishonest will suddenly be ruined. Mishlei 28:18


+ 225 Those who work their land will have plenty of food, but the ones who chase empty dreams instead will end up poor. Mishlei 28:19


+ 204 It is not good for a judge to take sides, but some will sin for only a piece of bread. Mishlei 28:21


+ 222 Whoever is stubborn after being corrected many times will suddenly be hurt beyond cure. Mishlei 29:1


+ 210 Murderers hate an honest person and try to kill those who do right. Mishlei 29:10


+ 212 Foolish people lose their tempers, but wise people control theirs. Mishlei 29:11


+ 192 If a ruler pays attention to lies, all his officers will become wicked. Mishlei 29:12


+ 242 The poor person and the cruel person are alike in that the Lord gave eyes to both of them. Mishlei 29:13


+ 240 If a king judges poor people fairly, his government will continue forever. Mishlei 29:14


+ 215 Correction and punishment make children wise, but those left alone will disgrace their mother. Mishlei 29:15


+ 231 When there are many wicked people, there is much sin, but those who do right will see them destroyed. Mishlei 29:16


+ 226 Correct your children, and you will be proud; they will give you satisfaction. Mishlei 29:17


+ 235 Where there is no word from God, people are uncontrolled, but those who obey what they have been taught are happy. Mishlei 29:18


+ 210 Words alone cannot correct a servant, because even if they understand, they won’t respond. Mishlei 29:19


+ 221 If you spoil your servants when they are young, they will bring you grief later on. Mishlei 29:21


+ 203 These are the words of Agur son of Jakeh. This is his message to Ithiel and Ucal: Mishlei 30:1


+ 237 Do not say bad things about servants to their masters, or they will curse you, and you will suffer for it. Mishlei 30:10


+ 230 Some people curse their fathers and do not bless their mothers. Mishlei 30:11


+ 207 Some people think they are pure, but they are not really free from evil. Mishlei 30:12


+ 200 Some people have such a proud look! They look down on others. Mishlei 30:13


+ 222 Some people have teeth like swords; their jaws seem full of knives. They want to remove the poor from the earth and the needy from the land. Mishlei 30:14


+ 221 “Greed has two daughters named ‘Give’ and ‘Give.’
There are three things that are never satisfied,
really four that never say, ‘I’ve had enough!’:
Mishlei 30:15


+ 218 the cemetery, the childless mother, the land that never gets enough rain, and fire that never says, ‘I’ve had enough!’ Mishlei 30:16


+ 222 If you make fun of your father and refuse to obey your mother, the birds of the valley will peck out your eyes, and the vultures will eat them. Mishlei 30:17


+ 215 There are three things that are too hard for me, really four I don’t understand: Mishlei 30:18


+ 272 The way an eagle flies in the sky, the way a snake slides over a rock, the way a ship sails on the sea, and the way a man and a woman fall in love. Mishlei 30:19


+ 231 There are three things that make the earth tremble, really four it cannot stand: Mishlei 30:21


+ 204 A rooster, a male goat, and a king when his army is around him. Mishlei 30:31


+ 227 These are the words of King Lemuel, the message his mother taught him: Mishlei 31:1


+ 188 If they drink, they might forget the law and keep the needy from getting their rights. Mishlei 31:5


+ 220 Give beer to people who are dying and wine to those who are sad. Mishlei 31:6


+ 205 Let them drink and forget their need and remember their misery no more. Mishlei 31:7


+ 215 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; defend the rights of all those who have nothing. Mishlei 31:8


+ 230 Speak up and judge fairly, and defend the rights of the poor and needy. Mishlei 31:9


+ 220 It is hard to find a good wife, because she is worth more than rubies. Mishlei 31:10


+ 280 Her husband trusts her completely. With her, he has everything he needs. Mishlei 31:11


+ 234 She does him good and not harm for as long as she lives. Mishlei 31:12


+ 213 She looks for wool and flax and likes to work with her hands. Mishlei 31:13


+ 220 She is like a trader’s ship, bringing food from far away. Mishlei 31:14


+ 237 She gets up while it is still dark and prepares food for her family and feeds her servant girls. Mishlei 31:15


+ 207 She inspects a field and buys it. With money she earned, she plants a vineyard. Mishlei 31:16


+ 187 She does her work with energy, and her arms are strong. Mishlei 31:17


+ 221 She knows that what she makes is good. Her lamp burns late into the night. Mishlei 31:18


+ 209 She makes thread with her hands and weaves her own cloth. Mishlei 31:19


+ 232 She welcomes the poor and helps the needy. Mishlei 31:20


+ 222 She does not worry about her family when it snows, because they all have fine clothes to keep them warm. Mishlei 31:21


+ 206 She makes coverings for herself; her clothes are made of linen and other expensive material. Mishlei 31:22


+ 210 Her husband is known at the city meetings, where he makes decisions as one of the leaders of the land. Mishlei 31:23


+ 239 She makes linen clothes and sells them and provides belts to the merchants. Mishlei 31:24


+ 221 She is strong and is respected by the people. She looks forward to the future with joy. Mishlei 31:25


+ 201 She speaks wise words and teaches others to be kind. Mishlei 31:26


+ 236 She watches over her family and never wastes her time. Mishlei 31:27


+ 189 Her children speak well of her. Her husband also praises her, Mishlei 31:28


+ 212 Saying, “There are many fine women, but you are better than all of them.” Mishlei 31:29


+ 230 Charm can fool you, and beauty can trick you, but a woman who respects the Lord should be praised. Mishlei 31:30


+ 239 Give her the reward she has earned; she should be praised in public for what she has done. Mishlei 31:31


+ 282 “Never before have Arabs made a capital in a kind of holy city. Take Saudi Arabia. They have Mecca, Medina, to build their capital there. They took a village called Riyadh and turned it into a capital. The Jordanians had Jerusalem, but they built a capital in Amman and not Jerusalem. I think the Arabs have — the Muslims have great rights in Jerusalem and they must be safeguarded to the tiniest little bit, as the rights of other Christians ... We were there a little earlier. In another four or five years, we celebrate 3,000 years since David the King came and made his capital of the Jewish Kingdom in Jerusalem. When we came back to a unified city after the Six-Day War, we were attacked, we drove them away, the city became one. We didn't touch any of the holy places. We gave freedom of access and freedom of prayer, of course, and freedom of education to every one of the many groups in the city.” Teddy Kollek; Mayor of Jerusalem (1967-1993)


+ 283 “For three thousand years, Jerusalem has been the center of Jewish hope and longing. No other city has played such a dominant role in the history, culture, religion and consciousness of a people as has Jerusalem in the life of Jewry and Judaism. Throughout centuries of exile, Jerusalem remained alive in the hearts of Jews everywhere as the focal point of Jewish history, the symbol of ancient glory, spiritual fulfillment and modern renewal. This heart and soul of the Jewish people engenders the thought that if you want one simple word to symbolize all of Jewish history, that word would be ‘Jerusalem.’” Teddy Kollek; Mayor of Jerusalem (1967-1993) Jerusalem, (DC: Washington Institute For Near East Policy, 1990), pp. 19-20.


+ 229 You ought to let the Jews have Jerusalem; it was they who made it famous. Winston Churchill to diplomat Evelyn Shuckburgh, 1955


+ 249 Through a historical catastrophe — the destruction of Jerusalem by the emperor of Rome — I was born in one of the cities in the diaspora. But I always deemed myself a child of Jerusalem, one who is in reality a native of Jerusalem. S.J. Agnon; Nobel Literautre Prize Laureate Nobel Prize Ceremony (1966)


+ 239 Without Jerusalem, the land of Israel is as a body without a soul. Elhanan Leib Lewinsky; Hebrew writer & Zionist leader (1857-1910)


+ 188 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Psalms 122:6


+ 254 In the din and tumult of the age, the still small voice of Jerusalem remains our only music. Israel Zangwill, 1921


+ 277 One of the questions asked by al-Balkhi, and often repeated to this day, is this: Why do the children of Israel continue to suffer? My grandmother Dodo thought it was because the goyim were jealous. The seder for Passover (which is a shame-faced simulacrum of a Hellenic question-and-answer session, even including the wine) tells the children that it's one of those things that happens to every Jewish generation. After the Shoah or Endl?sung or Holocaust, many rabbis tried to tell the survivors that the immolation had been a punishment for 'exile,' or for insufficient attention to the Covenant. This explanation was something of a flop with those whose parents or children had been the raw material for the 'proof,' so for a time the professional interpreters of god's will went decently quiet. This interval of ambivalence lasted until the war of 1967, when it was announced that the divine purpose could be discerned after all. How wrong, how foolish, to have announced its discovery prematurely! The exile and the Shoah could now both be understood, as part of a heavenly if somewhat roundabout scheme to recover the Western Wall in Jerusalem and other pieces of biblically mandated real estate.

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

+ 242 If Jerusalem falls into the hands of the Muslims, Athens and Rome will be next. Thus, Jerusalem is the main front protecting the West. It is not a conflict over territory but rather an ideological battle, between the mentality of the liberated West and the ideology of Islamic barbarism. There has been an independent Palestinian state since 1946, and it is the kingdom of Jordan. Geert Wilders, quoted in "Geert Wilders: Change Jordan's name to Palestine". ynetnews.com. 20 June 2010.


+ 287 Jerusalem was only destroyed because its inhabitants desecrated the Shabbat, they refrained from reciting the Morning and Evening Shema, the children in the Torah day schools wasted their learning time, because they were not shame faced (to sin), because they made the minors equal to the adults, because one did not rebuke another, because they embarrassed Torah Scholars.

+ 300 “If there is a hard, high wall and an egg that breaks against it, no matter how right the wall or how wrong the egg, I will stand on the side of the egg. Why? Because each of us is an egg, a unique soul enclosed in a fragile egg. Each of us is confronting a high wall. The high wall is the system which forces us to do the things we would not ordinarily see fit to do as individuals . . . We are all human beings, individuals, fragile eggs. We have no hope against the wall: it's too high, too dark, too cold. To fight the wall, we must join our souls together for warmth, strength. We must not let the system control us -- create who we are. It is we who created the system. (Jerusalem Prize acceptance speech, JERUSALEM POST, Feb. 15, 2009)” Haruki Murakami


+ 282 Jerusalem (1804)

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green
And was the holy lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen

And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark Satanic mills

Bring me my bow of burning gold
Bring me my arrows of desire
Bring me my spears o'clouds unfold
Bring me my chariot of fire

I will not cease from mental fight
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Til we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land
William Blake


+ 237 You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you. 2 Chronicles 20:17


+ 290 The last day i was home i took the rental car up old 14 behind the Sandia Mountains. as i drove north toward Santa Fe past Madrid I rolled the window down halfway and let the cold, brisk, February air come into the car. I smelled the pinon trees and the damp earth. The Gray came over me. My life flashed through my heart in one deep rush of feeling. When I made the turn around the mountain to the west, the mesas and valleys spread out before me under the orange and gold horizon. The sun hit me like a wave that flooded out the past and dissolved any idea of the future, and I felt okay and whole for about twenty minutes.

+ 258 Christians have been beaten, whipped, starved, humiliated, mutilated, tortured, hung, burned at the stake, crucified, and fed to lions; yet two thousand years after a man called Jesus of Nazareth walked the streets of Jerusalem, 1,734 million people alive on this earth today call themselves by the ever-dividing, ever-uniting word: Christian. God is still scattering the seeds a few righteous renegades planted in a city called Antioch. Had they only known what they were starting. Beth Moore, To Live Is Christ


+ 212 Of the 10 measures of beauty that God hath bestowed upon the world, nine of these fall to the lot of Jerusalem. The Talmud


+ 208 The view of Jerusalem is the history of the world; it is more, it is the history of earth and of heaven. Benjamin Disraeli 1st Earl of Beaconsfield and British Prime Minister


+ 217 The words of Koheleth son of David, king in Jerusalem. Kohelet 1:1


+ 239 Vanity of vanities, said Koheleth; vanity of vanities, all is vanity. Kohelet 1:2


+ 227 What profit has man in all his toil that he toils under the sun? Kohelet 1:3


+ 217 A generation goes and a generation comes, but the earth endures forever. Kohelet 1:4


+ 227 The sun rises and the sun sets, and to its place it yearns and rises there. Kohelet 1:5


+ 237 It goes to the south and goes around to the north; the will goes around and around, and the will returns to its circuits. Kohelet 1:6


+ 260 All the rivers flow into the sea, yet the sea is not full; to the place where the rivers flow, there they repeatedly go. Kohelet 1:7


+ 223 All things are wearisome; no one can utter it; the eye shall not be sated from seeing, nor shall the ear be filled from hearing. Kohelet 1:8


+ 252 What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Kohelet 1:9


+ 204 There is a thing of which someone will say, "See this, it is new." It has already been for ages which were before us. Kohelet 1:10


+ 220 But there is no remembrance of former generations, neither will the later ones that will be have any remembrance among those that will be afterwards. Kohelet 1:11


+ 238 I am Koheleth; I was king over Israel in Jerusalem. Kohelet 1:12


+ 256 And I applied my heart to inquire and to search with wisdom all that was done under the heaven. It is a sore task that God has given to the sons of men with which to occupy themselves. Kohelet 1:13


+ 261 I saw all the deeds that were done under the sun, and behold, everything is vanity and frustration. Kohelet 1:14


+ 233 What is crooked will not be able to be straightened, and what is missing will not be able to be counted. Kohelet 1:15


+ 242 I spoke to myself, saying, "I acquired and increased great wisdom, more than all who were before me over Jerusalem"; and my heart saw much wisdom and knowledge. Kohelet 1:16


+ 204 And I applied my heart to know wisdom and to know madness and folly; I know that this too is a frustration. Kohelet 1:17


+ 216 For in much wisdom is much vexation, and he who increases knowledge, increases pain. Kohelet 1:18


+ 221 I said to myself, "Come now, I will mix wine with joy and experience pleasure"; and behold, this too was vanity. Kohelet 2:1


+ 237 And of all that my eyes desired I did not deprive them; I did not deprive my heart of any joy, but my heart rejoiced with all my toil, and this was my portion from all my toil. Kohelet 2:10


+ 256 Then I turned to look at all my deeds that my hands had wrought and upon the toil that I had toiled to do, and behold everything is vanity and frustration, and there is no profit under the sun. Kohelet 2:11


+ 310 And I turned to see wisdom and madness and folly, for what is the man who will come after the king, concerning that which they have already done? Kohelet 2:12


+ 201 And I saw that wisdom has an advantage over folly, as the advantage of light over darkness. Kohelet 2:13


+ 208 The wise man has eyes in its beginning, but the fool goes in the darkness, and I too know that one event happens to them all. Kohelet 2:14


+ 252 And I said to myself, "As it happens to the fool, so will it happen to me too, so why then did I become wiser?" And I said to myself that this too is vanity. Kohelet 2:15


+ 235 For there is no remembrance of the wise man even as of the fool forever, seeing that in the coming days, all is forgotten. And how shall the wise die with the fool? Kohelet 2:16


+ 234 So I hated the living, for the deed that was done under the sun grieved me, for everything is vanity and frustration. Kohelet 2:17


+ 245 And I hated all my toil that I toil under the sun, that I should leave it to the man who will be after me. Kohelet 2:18


+ 239 And who knows whether he will be wise or foolish. And he will rule over all my toil that I have toiled and that I have gained wisdom under the sun; this too is vanity. Kohelet 2:19


+ 251 For there is a man whose toil is with wisdom and with knowledge and with honesty and to a man who did not toil for it he will give it as his portion; this too is vanity and a great evil. Kohelet 2:21


+ 237 Everything has an appointed season, and there is a time for every matter under the heaven. Kohelet 3:1


+ 186 I have seen the occupation that God gave to the sons of men with which to occupy themselves. Kohelet 3:10


+ 213 He has made everything beautiful in its time; also the wisdom of the world He put into their hearts, save that man should not find the deed which God did, from beginning to end. Kohelet 3:11


+ 226 I knew that there is nothing better for them but to rejoice and to do good during his lifetime. Kohelet 3:12


+ 239 And also, every man who eats and drinks and enjoys what is good in all his toil, it is a gift of God. Kohelet 3:13


+ 231 I knew that everything that God made, that will be forever; we cannot add to it, nor can we subtract from it; and God made it so that they fear Him. Kohelet 3:14


+ 220 That which was is already done, and that which is destined to be, already was, and God seeks the pursued. Kohelet 3:15


+ 229 And moreover, I saw under the sun, in the place of justice, there is wickedness, and in the place of righteousness, there is wickedness. Kohelet 3:16


+ 200 I said to myself, "God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time for every matter and for every deed there." Kohelet 3:17


+ 263 I said to myself, that this is because of the children of men, so that God should clarify for them, so that they may see that they are like beasts to themselves. Kohelet 3:18


+ 232 For there is a happening for the children of men, and there is a happening for the beasts-and they have one happening-like the death of this one is the death of that one, and all have one spirit, and the superiority of man over beast is nought, for all is vanity. Kohelet 3:19


+ 213 Who knows that the spirit of the children of men is that which ascends on high and the spirit of the beast is that which descends below to the earth? Kohelet 3:21


+ 238 But I returned and saw all the oppressed who are made so under the sun, and behold, the tears of the oppressed, and they have no consoler, and from the hand of their oppressors there is power, but they have no consoler. Kohelet 4:1


+ 236 For if they fall, one will lift up his friend, but woe to the one who falls and has no second one to lift him up. Kohelet 4:10


+ 207 Moreover, if two lie down, they will have warmth, but how will one have warmth? Kohelet 4:11


+ 245 And if a man prevails against the one, the two will stand against him, and a three- stranded cord will not quickly be broken. Kohelet 4:12


+ 262 Better a poor and wise child than an old and foolish king, who no longer knows to receive admonition. Kohelet 4:13


+ 200 For out of the prison he has come to reign, for even in his kingdom, he becomes humble. Kohelet 4:14


+ 221 I saw all the living who walk under the sun, with the second child who will rise in his stead. Kohelet 4:15


+ 218 There is no end to all the people, to all that were before them; also the last ones will not rejoice with him, for this too is vanity and frustration. Kohelet 4:16


+ 258 Watch your feet when you go to the House of God, and be ready to obey rather than fools should give sacrifice, for they know not that they do evil. Kohelet 4:17


+ 243 Be not rash with your mouth, and let your heart not be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven, and you are on the earth; therefore, let your words be few. Kohelet 5:1


+ 229 With the increase of good, its eaters increase, and what is the advantage to its Master, except seeing with His eyes? Kohelet 5:10


+ 203 The sleep of the laborer is sweet, whether he eat little or much, but the satiety of the rich does not allow him to sleep. Kohelet 5:11


+ 219 There is a grievous evil that I saw under the sun; riches kept by their owner for his harm. Kohelet 5:12


+ 229 And those riches are lost through an evil design, and he will beget a son who will have nothing in his hand. Kohelet 5:13


+ 266 As he left his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and he will carry nothing with his toil, that he will take in his hand. Kohelet 5:14


+ 222 And this too is a grievous evil, that just as it came so shall it go, and what advantage does he have that he toil for the wind? Kohelet 5:15


+ 207 Also all his days he eats in the dark, and he has much vexation and sickness and wrath. Kohelet 5:16


+ 241 Behold what I saw; it is good, yea, it is beautiful, to eat and drink and to experience goodness with all his toil that he toils under the sun, the number of the days of his life that God gave him, for that is his portion. Kohelet 5:17


+ 269 Also every man whom God has given riches and property and has given him power to eat thereof and to take his portion and to rejoice with his toil; that is a gift of God. Kohelet 5:18


+ 222 For let him remember that the days of his life are not many, for God is testimony of the joy of his heart. Kohelet 5:19


+ 260 There is an evil that I have seen under the sun, and it is prevalent among men. Kohelet 6:1


+ 245 What was, its name was already called, and it is known that he is a man, and he will not be able to strive with him who is stronger than he. Kohelet 6:10


+ 210 For there are many things that increase vanity; what will remain for a man? Kohelet 6:11


+ 214 For who knows what is good for man in his lifetime, the number of the days of his life of vanity, that he do them like a shadow, for who will tell man what will be after him under the sun? Kohelet 6:12


+ 239 A good name is better than good oil, and the day of death than the day of one's birth. Kohelet 7:1


+ 196 Do not say, "How was it that the former days were better than these?" For not out of wisdom have you asked concerning this. Kohelet 7:10


+ 258 Wisdom is good with a heritage, and it is a profit to those who see the sun. Kohelet 7:11


+ 233 For whoever is in the shade of wisdom is in the shade of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to its possessor. Kohelet 7:12


+ 214 See God's work, for who can straighten out what He made crooked? Kohelet 7:13


+ 252 On a day of good, be among the good, and on a day of adversity, ponder; God has made one corresponding to the other, to the end that man will find nothing after Him. Kohelet 7:14


+ 225 I have seen everything in the days of my vanity; there is a righteous man who perishes in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man who lives long in his wickedness. Kohelet 7:15


+ 230 Be not overly righteous, and be not overly wise; why should you bring desolation upon yourself? Kohelet 7:16


+ 217 Be not overly wicked, and be not a fool; why should you die before your time? Kohelet 7:17


+ 230 It is good that you should take hold of this, and also from this you shall not withdraw your hand, for he who fears God will discharge himself of them all. Kohelet 7:18


+ 271 Wisdom affords strength to the wise more than ten rulers who were in the city. Kohelet 7:19


+ 244 Who is like the wise man, and who knows the meaning of a thing? A man's wisdom makes his face shine, and the boldness of his face is changed. Kohelet 8:1


+ 237 And so I saw the wicked buried, and they came, and from the place of the Holy One they go away, and they will be forgotten in the city that they did so; this too is vanity. Kohelet 8:10


+ 247 Because the sentence of the deed of evil is not executed swiftly; therefore, the heart of the children of men is encouraged to do evil. Kohelet 8:11


+ 234 For a sinner does evil a hundred years, and He grants him an extension; but I know too that it will be good for those who fear God because they fear Him. Kohelet 8:12


+ 320 But it will not be well with the wicked, and he will not prolong his days, like a shadow, because he does not fear God. Kohelet 8:13


+ 233 There is vanity that is done on the earth, that there are righteous men to whom it happens according to the deed of the wicked, and there are wicked men to whom it happens according to the deed of the righteous; I said that this too is vanity. Kohelet 8:14


+ 231 And I praised joy, for there is nothing better for man under the sun than to eat and to drink and to be merry, and that will accompany him in his toil the days of his life that God gave him under the sun. Kohelet 8:15


+ 235 When I applied my heart to know wisdom and to see the conduct that is done upon the earth, for neither by day nor by night does he see sleep with his eyes. Kohelet 8:16


+ 246 And I saw all the deed of God, for a person will not be able to fathom the deed that is done under the sun, because though a man toils to seek, he will not fathom it, and even if the wise man claims to know it, he will be unable to fathom it. Kohelet 8:17


+ 241 For all this I laid to my heart and to clarify all this, that the righteous and the wise and their works are in God's hand; even love, even hate, man does not know; everything is before them. Kohelet 9:1


+ 253 Whatever your hand attains to do as long as you are with your strength, do; for there is neither deed nor reckoning, neither knowledge nor wisdom in the grave, where you are going. Kohelet 9:10


+ 259 I returned and saw under the sun, that the race does not belong to the swift, nor the war to the mighty; neither do the wise have bread, nor do the understanding have riches, nor the knowledgeable, favor; for time and fate will overtake them all. Kohelet 9:11


+ 247 For a person does not even know his time, like the fish that are caught with an inferior trap and like the birds that are caught in the snare; like them, the children of men are trapped at a time of evil, when it falls upon them suddenly. Kohelet 9:12


+ 229 This also have I seen as wisdom under the sun, and it seemed great to me. Kohelet 9:13


+ 249 There was a small city, with few people in it, and a great king came upon it and surrounded it and built over it great bulwarks. Kohelet 9:14


+ 229 And there was found therein a poor wise man, and he extricated the city through his wisdom, but no man remembered that poor man. Kohelet 9:15


+ 209 And I said, Wisdom is better than might, but the wisdom of the poor man is despised, and his words are not heard. Kohelet 9:16


+ 250 The words of the wise are heard when spoken softly, more than the shout of a ruler of fools. Kohelet 9:17


+ 220 Wisdom is better than weapons, and one sinner destroys much good. Kohelet 9:18


+ 247 Dying flies make putrid and foamy the oil of a perfumer; so does a little folly outweigh wisdom and honor. Kohelet 10:1


+ 222 The heart of the wise man is at his right, whereas the heart of the fool is at his left. Kohelet 10:2


+ 209 Also on the road, when a fool walks, his understanding is lacking, and he says to all that he is a fool. Kohelet 10:3


+ 219 If the spirit of the Ruler ascends upon you, do not leave your place, for a cure assuages great sins. Kohelet 10:4


+ 193 There is an evil that I saw under the sun, like an error that goes forth from before the ruler. Kohelet 10:5


+ 208 Folly was set at great heights, and the rich sit in a low place. Kohelet 10:6


+ 195 I saw slaves on horses and princes walking like slaves on the ground. Kohelet 10:7


+ 221 One who digs a pit shall fall therein, and one who breaks a fence-a snake shall bite him. Kohelet 10:8


+ 248 One who quarries stones shall be wearied by them; one who hews wood shall be warmed by it. Kohelet 10:9


+ 271 If the iron is dull, and he did not sharpen the edge, it still strengthens the armies, but wisdom has a greater advantage. Kohelet 10:10


+ 240 If the snake bites, it is because it was not charmed, and there is no advantage to one who has a tongue. Kohelet 10:11


+ 217 The words of a wise man's mouth find favor, but a fool's lips will destroy him. Kohelet 10:12


+ 200 The beginning of the words of his mouth is folly, and the end of his speech is grievous madness. Kohelet 10:13


+ 247 And the fool increases words; a man does not know what will be, and what will be behind him, who will tell him? Kohelet 10:14


+ 202 The toil of the fools wearies him, for he does not know to go to the city. Kohelet 10:15


+ 193 Woe to you, O land whose king is a lad, and your princes eat in the morning. Kohelet 10:16


+ 223 Fortunate are you, O land, whose king is the son of nobles, and your princes eat at the proper time, in might and not in drinking. Kohelet 10:17


+ 277 Through laziness the rafter sinks, and with idleness of the hands the house leaks. Kohelet 10:18


+ 223 On joyous occasions, a feast is made, and wine gladdens the living, and money answers everything. Kohelet 10:19


+ 268 Even in your thought, you shall not curse a king, nor in your bedrooms shall you curse a wealthy man, for the bird of the heaven shall carry the voice, and the winged creature will tell the matter. Kohelet 10:20


+ 220 Send forth your bread upon the surface of the water, for after many days you will find it. Kohelet 11:1


+ 220 Give a portion to seven and even to eight, for you do not know what evil will be on the earth. Kohelet 11:2


+ 229 If the clouds be full of rain, they will empty it upon the earth, and if a tree rests in the south or in the north, the place where the tree rests, there it will be. Kohelet 11:3


+ 250 He who waits for the wind will not sow, and he who looks at the clouds will not reap. Kohelet 11:4


+ 199 As you do not know what is the way of the wind, just as things enclosed in the full womb; so will you not know God's work, Who does everything. Kohelet 11:5


+ 231 In the morning, sow your seed, and in the evening, do not withhold your hand, for you know not which will succeed, this one or that one, or whether both of them will be equally good. Kohelet 11:6


+ 229 And the light is sweet, and it is good for the eyes to see the sun. Kohelet 11:7


+ 246 For if a man lives many years, let him rejoice in them all, and let him remember the days of darkness, for they will be many; all that befalls him is vanity. Kohelet 11:8


+ 237 Rejoice, O youth, in your childhood, and let your heart bring you cheer in the days of your youth, and go in the ways of your heart, and in the sight of your eyes, but know that for all these God will bring you to judgment. Kohelet 11:9


+ 262 And remove anger from your heart, and take evil away from your flesh, for childhood and youth are vanity. Kohelet 11:10


+ 241 And remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of evil come, and years arrive, about which you will say, "I have no desire in them." Kohelet 12:1


+ 221 Before the sun, the light, the moon, and the stars darken, and the clouds return after the rain. Kohelet 12:2


+ 254 On the day that the keepers of the house tremble, and the mighty men are seized by cramps, and the grinders cease since they have become few, and those who look out of the windows become darkened. Kohelet 12:3


+ 238 And the doors shall be shut in the street when the sound of the mill is low, and one shall rise at the voice of a bird, and all the songstresses shall be brought low. Kohelet 12:4


+ 248 Also from the high places they will fear, and terrors on the road, and the almond tree will blossom, and the grasshopper will drag itself along, and sexual desire will fail, for man goes to his everlasting home, and the mourners go about in the street. Kohelet 12:5


+ 269 Before the silver cord snaps, and the golden fountain is shattered, and the pitcher breaks at the fountain, and the wheel falls shattered into the pit. Kohelet 12:6


+ 228 And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God, Who gave it. Kohelet 12:7


+ 220 "Vanity of vanities," said Koheleth; "all is vanity." Kohelet 12:8


+ 212 And more than this, Koheleth was wise, he also taught knowledge to the people; he listened and sought out, he established many proverbs. Kohelet 12:9


+ 217 Koheleth sought to find words of delight and properly recorded words of truth. Kohelet 12:10


+ 247 The words of the wise are like goads, and like well-fastened nails with large heads, given from one shepherd. Kohelet 12:11


+ 223 And more than they, my son, beware; making many books has no end, and studying much is a weariness of the flesh. Kohelet 12:12


+ 246 The end of the matter, everything having been heard, fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the entire man. Kohelet 12:13


+ 229 For every deed God will bring to judgment-for every hidden thing, whether good or bad. Kohelet 12:14

+ 280 Silicon Valley for the most part at that time was still orchards — apricot orchards and prune orchards — and it was really paradise. I remember the air being crystal clear, where you could see from one end of the valley to the other. Steve Jobs — On growing up in Silicon Valley in the early 1960s, Smithsonian Institution, 1995


+ 265 Things became much more clear that they were the results of human creation not these magical things that just appeared in one's environment that one had no knowledge of their interiors. It gave a tremendous level of self-confidence, that through exploration and learning one could understand seemingly very complex things in one's environment. My childhood was very fortunate in that way. Steve Jobs — Smithsonian Institution, 1995


+ 304 When we finally presented [the Macintosh desktop computer] at the shareholders' meeting, everyone in the auditorium gave it a five-minute ovation.

+ 263 I was in the parking lot, with the key in the car, and I thought to myself, If this is my last night on earth, would I rather spend it at a business meeting or with this woman?

Steve Jobs — On meeting his wife, Laurene, The New York Times, 1997


+ 260 The people who built Silicon Valley were engineers. They learned business, they learned a lot of different things, but they had a real belief that humans, if they worked hard with other creative, smart people, could solve most of humankind's problems.

+ 264 One of the things I did when I got back to Apple 10 years ago was I gave the museum to Stanford and all the papers and all the old machines and kind of cleared out the cobwebs and said, let's stop looking backwards here.

+ 361 I was lucky — I found what I love to do early in life. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and I very much like Bob Dylan's poetry, and we spent a lot of time thinking about a lot of that stuff. This was California. You could get LSD fresh made from Stanford. You could sleep on the beach at night with your girlfriend. California has a sense of experimentation and a sense of openness — openness to new possibilities. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 253 You saw the 1984 commercial. Macintosh was basically this relatively small company in Cupertino, California, taking on the goliath, IBM, and saying, 'Wait a minute, your way is wrong. This is not the way we want computers to go. This is not the legacy we want to leave. This is not what we want our kids to be learning. This is wrong and we are going to show you the right way to do it and here it is. It's called Macintosh and it is so much better. It's going to beat you and you're going to do it'. Steve Jobs — Smithsonian Institution. 1995


+ 250 You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new. Steve Jobs — Inc. 1989


+ 278 Apple has some tremendous assets, but I believe without some attention, the company could, could, could — I'm searching for the right word — could, could die. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1997, on his return to Apple as CEO


+ 278 That's been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 1998


+ 260 You can't really predict exactly what will happen, but you can feel the direction that we're going. And that's about as close as you can get. Then you just stand back and get out of the way, and these things take on a life of their own. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone, 1994


+ 240 We're gambling on our vision, and we would rather do that than make 'me too' products. Let some other companies do that. For us, it's always the next dream. Steve Jobs — Interview for the release of the Macintosh, 1984


+ 239 We're gambling on our vision, and we would rather do that than make 'me too' products. Let some other companies do that. For us, it's always the next dream. Steve Jobs — Interview for the release of the Macintosh, 1984


+ 192 We're not just building a computer, we're building a company. Steve Jobs — Esquire. 1986


+ 273 If Mercedes made a bicycle or a hamburger or a computer, I don't think there'd be much advantage in having its logo on it. I don't think Apple would get much equity putting its name on an automobile, either. And just because the whole world is going digital — TV, audio, and all that — doesn't mean there's anything wrong with just being in the computer business. The computer business is huge. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 218 I think the way out is not to slash and burn, it's to innovate. That's how Apple got to its glory, and that's how Apple could return to it. Steve Jobs — Wall Street Week, 1996


+ 240 Just avoid holding it in that way. — Personal email to a customer with concerns over an antenna reception issue with the newly released iPhone 4, where dropped calls were caused when the user grasped the product's steel-banded sides. Steve Jobs 2010


+ 227 We're gambling on our vision, and we would rather do that than make 'me too' products. Let some other companies do that. For us, it's always the next dream. Steve Jobs — Interview, 1994


+ 243 I don't think in terms of market shares, 1 think in terms of us making the best personal computers in the world, and if we can do that. I think our market share will go up. Steve Jobs — CHA 1999


+ 273 A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets. It wasn't that Microsoft was so brilliant or clever in copying the Mac, it's that the Mac was a sitting duck for 10 years. That's Apple's problem: Their differentiation evaporated. If I were running Apple, I would milk the Macintosh for all it's worth — and get busy on the next great thing— The PC wars are over. Done. Microsoft won a long time ago. Steve Jobs — Fortune. 1996


+ 240 I've also found that the best companies pay attention to aesthetics. They take the extra time to lay out grids and proportion things appropriately, and it seems to pay off for them. I mean, beyond the functional benefits, the aesthetic communicates something about how they think of themselves, their sense of discipline in engineering, how they run their company, stuff like that. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 268 Customers think the price is realty good where it is. We're trying to compete with piracy — we're trying to pull people away from piracy and say, 'You can buy these songs legally for a fair price.' But if the price goes up a lot, they'll go back to piracy. Then, everybody loses. The HD revolution is over, it happened. HD won. Everybody wants. Steve Jobs — Apple Special Event keynote. 2010


+ 213 In business, if I knew earlier what I know now, I'd have probably done some things a lot better than I did, but I also would've probably done some other things a lot worse. But so what? It's more important to be engaged in the present. Steve Jobs — Fortune. 1998


+ 215 Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone, 1994


+ 215 This is not a one-man show. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 1998


+ 263 My number one job here at Apple is to make sure that the top 100 people are A+ players. And everything else will take care of itself. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1999


+ 248 I'm a very big believer in equal opportunity as opposed to equal outcome. I don't believe in equal outcome because unfortunately life's not like that. It would be a pretty boring place if it was. Steve Jobs — Computerworld Smithsonian Awards, 1995


+ 236 We all tend to reduce reality to symbols, but Superman went out a long time ago. The way you accomplish anything significant is with a team. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 254 I know people tike symbols, but it's always unsettling when people write stories about me, because they tend to overlook a lot of other people. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1999


+ 235 The people who are doing the work are the moving force behind the Macintosh. My job is to create a space for them, to clear out the rest of the organization and keep it at bay. The things that I have done in my life, I think the things we do now at Pixar, these are team sports. They are not something one person does. Steve Jobs — Charlie Rose, 1996


+ 224 We believe it's the biggest advance in animation since Walt Disney started it all with the release of Snow White 50 years ago. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1995, on Toy Story


+ 212 iMac is next year's computer for $1,299, not last year's computer for $999. Steve Jobs — Introducing the first iMac computer, 1998


+ 224 It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 1998


+ 320 What we want to do is make a leapfrog product that is way smarter than any mobile device has ever been, and super-easy to use. This is what iPhone is. OK? So. we're going to reinvent the phone. innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. it's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 263 It was a great challenge. Let's make a great phone that we fall in love with. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. Creativity is Just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. Steve Jobs — 1996


+ 267 And [innovation] comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don't get on the wrong track or try to do too much. We're always thinking about new markets we could enter, but it's only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 2004


+ 234 It's rare that you see an artist in his 30s or 40s able to really contribute something amazing. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 265 The products suck! There's no sex in them anymore! Steve Jobs — On the state of Apple just before his return, BusinessWeek, 1997


+ 235 We're trying to make great products for people, and we at least have the courage of our convictions to say 'We don't think this is part of what makes a great product, we're going to leave it out' That's what a lot of customers pay us to do. Steve Jobs — All Things Digital, 2010


+ 244 When you're a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you're not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You'll know it's there, so you're going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through. Steve Jobs — 1985


+ 254 …Innovation comes from people meeting up in the hallways or calling each other at 10:30 at night with a new idea, or because they realized something that shoots holes in how we've been thinking about a problem. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 2004


+ 270 Don't take it all too seriously. If you want to live your life in a creative way, as an artist, you have to not look back too much. You have to be willing to take whatever you've done and whoever you were and throw them away. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 235 You've got to start with the customer experience and work back toward the technology — not the other way around. Steve Jobs — Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, 1997


+ 238 The desktop computer industry is dead. Innovation has virtually ceased. Microsoft dominates with very little innovation. That's over. Apple lost. The desktop market has entered the dark ages, and it's going to be in the dark ages for the next 10 years, or certainly for the rest of this decade. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 255 There's an old Wayne Gretzky quote that I love. 'I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.' And we've always tried to do that at Apple. Since the very very beginning. And we always will. You know, I've got a plan that could rescue Apple. I can't say any more than that it's the perfect product and the perfect strategy for Apple. But nobody there will listen to me… Steve Jobs— Fortune, 1995


+ 259 They really thought the process through. They did such a great job designing these washers and dryers. I got more thrill out of them than I have out of any piece of high tech in years. Steve Jobs — On Miele, a Germany-based manufacturer of high-end domestic appliances, Wired, 1996


+ 237 The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste, they have absolutely no taste… I guess I am saddened, not by Microsoft's success — I have no problem with their success, they've earned their success for the most part. I have a problem with the fact that they just make really third-rate products. Steve Jobs — PBS Documentary, Triumph of the Nerds. 1996


+ 253 I told him I believed every word of what I'd said but that I never should have said it in public. Steve Jobs — On apologizing to Bill Gates for disparaging Microsoft in a documentary, The New York Times. 1997


+ 224 Nobody has tried to swallow us since I've been here. I think they are afraid how we would taste. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek. 1998


+ 243 With our technology, with objects, literally three people in a garage can blow away what 200 people at Microsoft can do. Bill Gates'd be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger. Steve Jobs — The New York Times, 1997


+ 222 Unfortunately, people are not rebelling against Microsoft They don't know any better. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone, 1994


+ 280 Pretty much, Apple and Dell are the only ones in this industry making money. They make it by being Wal-Mart. We make it by innovation. This is a story that's amazing. It's got theft, it's got buying stolen property, it's got extortion. I'm sure it's got sex in there somewhere. Somebody should make a movie out of this! Steve Jobs — On the circumstances surrounding an iPhone prototype that was discovered in a bar and published in an online technology blog, Gizmodo. All Things Digital, 2010


+ 288 Microsoft has had two goals in the last 10 years. One was to copy the-Mac, and the other was to copy Lotus' success in the spreadsheet — basically, the applications business. And over the course of the last 10 years, Microsoft accomplished both of those goals. And now they are completely lost. Bill built the first software company in the industry and I think he built the first software company before anybody really in our industry knew what a software company was, except for these guys. And that was huge. That was really huge. Steve Jobs — On Bill Gates. All Things Digital D5 conference


+ 270 It's like when IBM drove a lot of innovation out of the computer industry before the microprocessor came along. Eventually, Microsoft will crumble because of complacency, and maybe some new things will grow. But until that happens, until there's some fundamental technology shift, it's just over. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 213 The Web is not going to change the world, certainly not in the next 10 years. It's going to augment the world. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 247 For me, the most exciting thing in the software area is the Internet, and part of the reason for that is no one owns it. It's a free for all, it's much like the early days of the personal computer. Steve Jobs — Wall Street Week, 1995


+ 198 It'll make your jaw drop. Steve Jobs — On the first NeXT computer. The New York Times, 1989


+ 247 Computers are the first thing to come along since books that will sit there and interact with you endlessly, without judgment. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 219 I think humans are basically tool builders, and the computer is the most remarkable tool we've ever built. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 279 I love things that level hierarchy, that bring the individual up to the same level as an organization, or a small group up to the same level as a large group with much greater resources. And the Web and the Internet do that. It's a very profound thing. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 315 A computer is the most incredible tool we've ever seen. It can be a writing tool, a communications center, a supercalculator, a planner, a filer and an artistic instrument all in one, just by being given new instructions, or software, to work from. There are no other tools that have the power and versatility of a computer. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 226 Older people sit down and ask, 'What is it?' but the boy asks, 'What can 1 do with it?' Steve Jobs


+ 239 I think humans are basically tool builders, and the computer is the most remarkable tool we've ever built. The big insight a lot of us had in the 1970s had to do with the importance of putting that tool in the hands of individuals. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 215 There are no other tools that have the power and versatility of a computer. We have no idea how far it's going to go. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 243 The most exciting things happening today are objects and the Web. The Web is exciting for two reasons. One, it's ubiquitous. There will be Web dial tone everywhere. And anything that's ubiquitous gets interesting. Two, 1 don't think Microsoft will figure out a way to own it. There's going to be a lot more innovation, and that will create a place where there isn't this dark cloud of dominance. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 290 If you look at things I've done in my life, they have an element of democratizing. The Web is an incredible democratizer. A small company can look as large as a big company and be as accessible as a big company on the Web. Big companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars building their distribution channels. And the Web is going to completely neutralize that advantage. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 243 The Apple II peeled off the hardware layer. You didn't need to know about the hardware to use a computer. The next step was the transition from the Apple II to the Macintosh, which peeled off the computer-literacy layer, if you will. In other words, you didn't have to be a hacker or a computer scientist to use one of these. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 253 What we can put in a computer for $1.000 is just mind-blowing. Computers themselves, and software yet to be developed, will revolutionize the way we learn. Steve Jobs


+ 262 It takes these very simple-minded instructions — 'Go fetch a number, add it to this number, put the result there, perceive if it's greater than this other number' — but executes them at a rate of, let's say, 1,000,000 per second. At 1,000,000 per second, the results appear to be magic. Steve Jobs — Explaining the first computers


+ 235 What a computer is to me is the most remarkable tool that we have ever come up with. It's the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds. Steve Jobs — Memory and Imagination: New Pathways to the Library of Congress (1991)


+ 254 Whenever you do any one thing intensely over a period of time, you have to give up other lives you could be living. You have to have a real single-minded kind of tunnel vision if you want to get anything significant accomplished. Especially if the desire is not to be a businessman, but to be a creative person. Steve Jobs — Esquire, 1986


+ 238 We're the last guys left in this industry who can do it, and that's what we're about. Our goal is to make the best devices in the world, not to be the biggest. Steve Jobs — Conference call with analysts, 2010


+ 274 We want to stand at the intersection of computers and humanism. Why music? Well, we love music and it's always good to do something you love. Steve Jobs — Introducing the first iPod, 2001


+ 241 The worst thing that could possibly happen as we get big and we get a little bit more influence in the world is if we change our core values and start letting it slide. I can't do that. I'd rather quit. We have the same values now as we had then. Steve Jobs — On whether the company should have gone after Gizmodo, All Things Digital, 2010


+ 198 Think I have five more great products in me. Steve Jobs — Esquire, 1986


+ 249 I'm convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance. It is so hard. You put so much of your life into this thing. Steve Jobs — Computerworld Smithsonian Awards, 1995


+ 267 You've got to be careful choosing what you're going to do. Once you pick something you really care about, and it's a worthwhile thing to do, then you can kind of forget about it and just work at it. The dedication comes naturally. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 214 Pixar is making art for the ages. Kids will be watching Toy Story in the future. And Apple is much more of a constant race to continually improve things and stay ahead of the competition. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1999


+ 221 Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me… Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful. — that's what matters to me. Steve Jobs — The Wall Street journal, 1993


+ 274 And no, we don't know where it will lead. We just know there's something much bigger than any of us here. Apple really beats to a different drummer. 1 used to say that Apple should be the Sony of this business, but in reality, I think Apple should be the Apple of this business. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 1998


+ 286 Apple is a $30 billion company, yet we've got less than 30 major products. I don't know if that's ever been done before. If you go out and ask people what's wrong with computers today, they'll tell you they're really complicated, they have a zillion cables coming out of the back, they're really big and noisy, they're really ugly, and they take forever to get on the Internet. And so we tried to set out to fix those problems with products like the iMac. Steve Jobs — CNA, 1999


+ 242 I don't think that people have special responsibilities just because they've done something that other people like or don't like. I think the work speaks for itself. Steve Jobs — Smithsonian Institution, 1995


+ 267 So let's not use a stylus. We're going to use the best pointing device in the world. We're going to use a pointing device that we're all born with — born with ten of them. We're going to use our fingers. We're going to touch this with our fingers. And we have invented a new technology called multi-touch, which is phenomenal. It works like magic. Picasso had a saying: 'Good artists copy, great artists steal.' We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas… I think part of what made the Macintosh great was that the people working on it were musicians, poets, artists, zoologists and historians who also happened to be the best computer scientists in the world. Steve Jobs — Interview, 1994


+ 278 There's nothing that makes my day more than getting an e-mail from some random person in the universe who just bought an iPad over in the UK and tells rne the story about how it's the coolest product they've ever brought home in their lives. That's what keeps me going. Apple turns out many products — a dozen a year; if you count all the minor ones, probably a hundred. Pixar is striving to turn out one a year. But the converse of that is that Pixar's products will still be used fifty years from now, whereas I don't think you'll be using any product Apple brings to market this year fifty years from now. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1999


+ 337 John Sculley ruined Apple and he ruined it by bringing a set of values to the top of Apple which were corrupt and corrupted some of the top people who were there, drove out some of the ones who were not corruptible, and brought in more corrupt ones and paid themselves collectively tens of millions of dollars and cared more about their own glory and wealth than they did about what built Apple in the first place — which was making great computers for people to use. Steve Jobs — Computerworld Smithsonian Awards Program, 1995


+ 236 I've had lots of girlfriends. But the greatest high in my life was the day we introduced the Macintosh. Steve Jobs — Esquire, 1986


+ 229 I would trade all of my technology for an afternoon with Socrates. Steve Jobs — Newsweek 2001


+ 208 It's more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy. Steve Jobs — Odyssey: Pepsi to Apple. 1982


+ 215 The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do. Steve Jobs — "Think Different" promotional video by Apple, 1997


+ 256 Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. Just to try to be as good a father to them as my father was to me. I think about that every day of my life. Steve Jobs — On raising his children, The New York Times, 1997


+ 257 I make fifty cents for showing up… and the other fifty cents is based on my performance. Steve Jobs — Apple shareholder meeting, 2007, on his annual salary of $1


+ 278 I was worth about over a million dollars when I was twenty-three and over ten million dollars when I was twenty-four, and over a hundred million dollars when I was twenty-five and it wasn't that important because I never did it for the money. Steve Jobs — Triumph of the Nerds, 1996


+ 235 I'm an optimist in the sense that I believe humans are noble and honorable, and some of them are really smart. I have a very optimistic view of individuals. As individuals, people are inherently good. I have a somewhat more pessimistic view of people in groups. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 256 Much of what I stumbled into, by following my curiosity and intuition, turned out to be priceless later on. Equal opportunity to me more than anything means a great education. I don't think much about my time of life. 1 just get up in the morning and it's a new day. Think about yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. Steve Jobs


+ 267 I'm sorry, it's true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We're born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It's been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much — if at all. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 236 I always stay connected with Apple. Steve Jobs — Playboy. 1985


+ 250 Bottom line is, I didn't return to Apple to make a fortune. I've been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn't going to let it ruin my life. There's no way you could ever spend it all, and I don't view wealth as something that validates my intelligence. Steve Jobs


+ 224 You know, my main reaction to this money thing is that it's humorous, all the attention to it, because it's hardly the most insightful or valuable thing that's happened to me. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 253 I remain extremely concerned when I see what's happening in our country, which is in many ways the luckiest place in the world. We don't seem to be excited about making our country a better place for our kids. Steve Jobs — Wired. 1996


+ 241 My self-identity does not revolve around being a businessman, though I recognize that is what I do. I think of myself more as a person who builds neat things. I like building neat things. I like making tools that are useful to people. Steve Jobs — Esquire, 1986


+ 249 I feel like somebody just punched me in the stomach and knocked all my wind out. I'm only 30 years old and I want to have a chance to continue creating things. I know I've got at least one more great computer in me. And Apple is not going to give me a chance to do that. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1987


+ 289 I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come. Steve Jobs — Memo to Apple employees, 2011


+ 276 — An oft-used phrase used to unveil products towards the end of Apple presentations Remember The Whole Earth Catalog? The last edition had a photo on the back cover of a remote country road you might find yourself on while hitchhiking up to Oregon. It was a beautiful shot, and it had a caption that really grabbed me. It said: 'Stay hungry. Stay foolish.' It wasn't an ad for anything — just one of Stewart Brand's profound statements. It's wisdom. 'Stay hungry. Stay foolish.' Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 192 Sleep optional but not recommended. CS107 student


+ 269 I'm sorry that we have to have a Washington presence. We thrived during our first 16 years without any of this. I never made a political visit to Washington and we had no people here. It wasn't on our radar screen. We were just making great software. Bill Gates


+ 270 The joke about SAP has always been, it's making '50s German manufacturing methodology, implemented in 1960s software technology, delivered to 1970-style manufacturing organizations, like, it's really - yeah, the incumbency - they are still the lingering hangover from the dot-com crash. Marc Andreessen


+ 275 If I say I've got two versions of Word - that old one from 1982 that's perfect, with zero defects; or the new one that's got all this cool new stuff, but there might be a few bugs in it - people always want the new one. But I wouldn't want them to operate a plane I was on with software that happened to be the latest greatest release! Nathan Myhrvold

Song of Solomon 1:5

where do you feed your sheep?
Where do you let them rest at noon?
Why should I look for you near your friend’s sheep,

+ 255 You are the most beautiful of women.
Surely you know to follow the sheep
and feed your young goats
near the shepherds’ tents.
Song of Solomon 1:8


+ 248 My darling, you are like a mare among the king’s stallions.
Song of Solomon 1:9


+ 254 Your cheeks are beautiful with ornaments,
and your neck with jewels.
Song of Solomon 1:10


+ 244 We will make for you gold earrings with silver hooks. Song of Solomon 1:11


+ 242 The smell of my perfume spreads out to the king on his couch. Song of Solomon 1:12


+ 270 My lover is like a bag of myrrh that lies all night between my breasts. Song of Solomon 1:13


+ 294 My lover is like a bunch of flowers from the vineyards at En Gedi. Song of Solomon 1:14


+ 256 My darling, you are beautiful!
Oh, you are beautiful,
and your eyes are like doves.
Song of Solomon 1:15


+ 274 You are so handsome, my lover,
and so pleasant!
Our bed is the grass.
Song of Solomon 1:16


+ 246 Cedar trees form our roof;
our ceiling is made of juniper wood.
Song of Solomon 1:17


+ 221 I am a rose in the Plain of Sharon, a lily in the valleys. Song of Solomon 2:1


+ 301 My lover spoke and said to me,
Get up, my darling;
let’s go away, my beautiful one.
Song of Solomon 2:10


+ 249 Look, the winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Song of Solomon 2:11


+ 291 Blossoms appear through all the land.
The time has come to sing;
the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
Song of Solomon 2:12


+ 299 There are young figs on the fig trees, and the blossoms on the vines smell sweet.
Get up, my darling; let’s go away, my beautiful one.
Song of Solomon 2:13


+ 295 O my dove, in the clefts of the rock,
in the crannies of the cliff,
let me see your face,
let me hear your voice,
for your voice is sweet,
and your face is lovely.
Song of Solomon 2:14


+ 276 Catch the foxes for us,
the little foxes
that spoil the vineyards,
for our vineyards are in blossom.
Song of Solomon 2:15


+ 288 My beloved is mine, and I am his;
he grazes among the lilies.
Song of Solomon 2:16


+ 278 Until the day breathes
and the shadows flee,
turn, my beloved, be like a gazelle
or a young stag on cleft mountains.
Song of Solomon 2:17


+ 315 On my bed by night
I sought him whom my soul loves;
I sought him, but found him not.
Song of Solomon 3:1


+ 289 He made its posts of silver and its braces of gold.
The seat was covered with purple cloth that the women of Jerusalem wove with love.
Song of Solomon 3:10


+ 240 Women of Jerusalem, go out and see King Solomon.
He is wearing the crown his mother put on his head on his wedding day, when his heart was happy!
Song of Solomon 3:10


+ 282 How beautiful you are, my darling!
Oh, you are beautiful!
Your eyes behind your veil are like doves.
Your hair is like a flock of goats streaming down Mount Gilead.
Song of Solomon 4:1


+ 298 Your love is so sweet, my sister, my bride.
Your love is better than wine,
and your perfume smells better than any spice.
Song of Solomon 4:10


+ 265 My bride, your lips drip honey;
honey and milk are under your tongue.
Your clothes smell like the cedars of Lebanon.
Song of Solomon 4:11


+ 280 My sister, my bride, you are like a garden locked up,
like a walled-in spring, a closed-up fountain.
Song of Solomon 4:12


+ 286 Your limbs are like an orchard
of pomegranates with all the best fruit,
filled with flowers and nard,
Song of Solomon 4:13


+ 220 Nard and saffron, calamus, and cinnamon,
with trees of incense, myrrh, and aloes— all the best spices.
Song of Solomon 4:14


+ 304 You are like a garden fountain— a well of fresh water flowing down from the mountains of Lebanon.
Song of Solomon 4:15


+ 293 Awake, north wind. Come, south wind.
Blow on my garden, and let its sweet smells flow out.
Let my lover enter the garden and eat its best fruits.
Song of Solomon 4:16


+ 351 I have entered my garden, my sister, my bride.
I have gathered my myrrh with my spice.
I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey.
I have drunk my wine and my milk.
Eat, friends, and drink;
yes, drink deeply, lovers.
Song of Solomon 5:1


+ 298 My lover is healthy and tan,
the best of ten thousand men.
Song of Solomon 5:10


+ 256 His head is like the finest gold;
his hair is wavy and black like a raven.
Song of Solomon 5:11


+ 256 His eyes are like doves
by springs of water.
They seem to be bathed in cream
and are set like jewels.
Song of Solomon 5:12


+ 281 His cheeks are like beds of spices;
they smell like mounds of perfume.
His lips are like lilies
flowing with myrrh.
Song of Solomon 5:13


+ 243 His hands are like gold hinges,
filled with jewels.
His body is like shiny ivory
covered with sapphires.
Song of Solomon 5:14


+ 243 His legs are like large marble posts,
standing on bases of fine gold.
He is like a cedar of Lebanon,
like the finest of the trees.
Song of Solomon 5:15


+ 293 His mouth is sweet to kiss, and I desire him very much.
Yes, daughters of Jerusalem, this is my lover and my friend.
Song of Solomon 5:16


+ 301 Where has your lover gone,
most beautiful of women?
Which way did your lover turn?
We will look for him with you.
Song of Solomon 6:1


+ 234 Who is that young woman
that shines out like the dawn?
She is as pretty as the moon,
as bright as the sun,
as wonderful as an army flying flags.
Song of Solomon 6:10


+ 256 I went down into the orchard of nut trees to see the blossoms of the valley,
to look for buds on the vines,
to see if the pomegranate trees had bloomed.
Song of Solomon 6:11


+ 240 Before I realized it, my desire for you made me feel like a prince in a chariot.
Song of Solomon 6:12


+ 276 Come back, come back, woman of Shulam.
Come back, come back,
so we may look at you!

Why do you want to look at the woman of Shulam
as you would at the dance of two armies?
Song of Solomon 6:13


+ 299 Your feet are beautiful in sandals,
you daughter of a prince.
Your round thighs are like jewels shaped by an artist.
Song of Solomon 7:1


+ 285 I belong to my lover,
and he desires only me.
Song of Solomon 7:10


+ 324 Come, my lover,
let’s go out into the country
and spend the night in the fields.
Song of Solomon 7:11


+ 276 Let’s go early to the vineyards
and see if the buds are on the vines.
Let’s see if the blossoms have already opened
and if the pomegranates have bloomed.
There I will give you my love.
Song of Solomon 7:12


+ 295 The mandrake flowers give their sweet smell,
and all the best fruits are at our gates.
I have saved them for you, my lover, the old delights and the new.
Song of Solomon 7:13


+ 263 I wish you were like my brother
who fed at my mother’s breasts.
If I found you outside,
I would kiss you,
and no one would look down on me.
Song of Solomon 8:1


+ 273 I am a wall,
and my breasts are like towers.
So I was to him,
as one who brings happiness.
Song of Solomon 8:10


+ 264 Solomon had a vineyard at Baal Hamon.
He rented the vineyards for others to tend,
and everyone who rented had to pay
twenty-five pounds of silver for the fruit.
Song of Solomon 8:11


+ 284 But my own vineyard is mine to give.
Solomon, the twenty-five pounds of silver are for you,
and five pounds are for those who tend the fruit.
Song of Solomon 8:12


+ 263 You who live in the gardens,
my friends are listening for your voice;
let me hear it.
Song of Solomon 8:13


+ 350 Hurry, my lover,
be like a gazelle
or a young deer
on the mountains where spices grow.
Song of Solomon 8:14

+ 232 In the name of the LORD, the Everlasting God. Genesis 21,33


+ 493 “Why aren't you in school? I see you every day wandering around." "Oh, they don't miss me," she said. "I'm antisocial, they say. I don't mix. It's so strange. I'm very social indeed. It all depends on what you mean by social, doesn't it? Social to me means talking to you about things like this." She rattled some chestnuts that had fallen off the tree in the front yard. "Or talking about how strange the world is. Being with people is nice. But I don't think it's social to get a bunch of people together and then not let them talk, do you? An hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running, another hour of transcription history or painting pictures, and more sports, but do you know, we never ask questions, or at least most don't; they just run the answers at you, bing, bing, bing, and us sitting there for four more hours of film-teacher. That's not social to me at all. It's a lot of funnels and lot of water poured down the spout and out the bottom, and them telling us it's wine when it's not. They run us so ragged by the end of the day we can't do anything but go to bed or head for a Fun Park to bully people around, break windowpanes in the Window Smasher place or wreck cars in the Car Wrecker place with the big steel ball. Or go out in the cars and race on the streets, trying to see how close you can get to lampposts, playing 'chicken' and 'knock hubcaps.' I guess I'm everything they say I am, all right. I haven't any friends. That's supposed to prove I'm abnormal. But everyone I know is either shouting or dancing around like wild or beating up one another. Do you notice how people hurt each other nowadays?” Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451


+ 267 I have read true piety defined as: loving one’s destiny unconditionally – and there is something in it. That is to say: I think that in a way this sort of “religiousness” is the condition for real happiness. Karen Blixen, Letters from Africa, 1914-1931


+ 208 In a world of 1s and 0s... are you a zero, or The One?


+ 340 Zion, hear me! It is true, what many of you have heard. The machines have gathered an army and as I speak, that army is drawing nearer to our home. Believe me when I say we have a difficult time ahead of us. But if we are to be prepared for it, we must first shed our fear of it. I stand here, before you now, truthfully unafraid. Why? Because I believe something you do not? No, I stand here without fear because I remember. I remember that I am here not because of the path that lies before me but because of the path that lies behind me. I remember that for 100 years we have fought these machines. I remember that for 100 years they have sent their armies to destroy us, and after a century of war I remember that which matters most... We are still here! Today, let us send a message to that army. Tonight, let us shake this cave. Tonight, let us tremble these halls of earth, steel, and stone, let us be heard from red core to black sky. Tonight, let us make them remember, this is Zion, and we are not afraid! Morpheus


+ 303 The evidence from anthropology concurs with history in refuting the popular belief in a Jewish race descended from the biblical tribe. From the anthropologist's point of view, two groups of facts militate against this belief: the wide diversity of Jews with regard to physical characteristics, and their similarity to the Gentile population amidst whom they live. Both are reflected in the statistics about bodily height, cranial index, blood-groups, hair and eye colour, etc. Whichever of these anthropological criteria is taken as an indicator, it shows a greater similarity between Jews and their Gentile host-nation than between Jews living in different countries. ...The obvious biological explanation for both phenomena is miscegenation, which took different forms in different historical situations: intermarriage, large-scale proselytizing, rape as a constant (legalized or tolerated) accompaniment of war and pogrom. The Thirteenth Tribe (1976). Arthur Koestler


+ 277 At present, many of the ablest minds are trying to devise expedients for preventing a repetition of the awful conflict which is only theoretically ended and the duration and main issues of which I have correctly predicted in an article printed in the Sun of December 20, 1914. The proposed League is not a remedy but, on the contrary, in the opinion of a number of competent men, may bring about results just the opposite. It is particularly regrettable that a punitive policy was adopted in framing the terms of peace, because a few years hence, it will be possible for nations to fight without armies, ships or guns, by weapons far more terrible, to the destructive action and range of which there is virtually no limit. Any city, at a distance, whatsoever, from the enemy, can be destroyed by him and no power on earth can stop him from doing so. Nikola Tesla


+ 271 The evolution of electric power from the discovery of Faraday to the initial great installation of the Tesla polyphase system in 1896 is undoubtedly the most tremendous event in all engineering history. Charles F. Scott


+ 359 Tesla, with his almost preternatural insight into alternating current phenomenon that had enabled him some years before to revolutionize the art of electric power transmission through the invention of the rotary field motor, knew how to make resonance serve, not merely the role of a microscope to make visible the electric oscillations, as Hertz had done, but he made it serve the role of a stereopticon to render spectacular to large audiences the phenomena of electric oscillations and high frequency currents....He did more to excite interest and create an intelligent understanding of these phenomena in the years 1891–1893 than anyone else, and the more we learn about high frequency phenomena, resonance, and radiation today, the nearer we find ourselves approaching what we at one time were inclined, through a species of intellectual myopia, to regard as the fascinating but fantastical speculations of a man whom we are now compelled, in the light of modern experience and knowledge, to admit was a prophet. But Tesla was no mere lecturer and prophet. He saw to the fulfillment of his prophesies and it has been difficult to make any but unimportant improvements in the art of radio-telegraphy without traveling part of the way at least, along a trail blazed by this pioneer who, though eminently ingenious, practical, and successful in the apparatus he devised and constructed, was so far ahead of his time that the best of us then mistook him for a dreamer. I never came anywhere near having an appreciation of what Mr. Tesla had done in this art until a very late date... John Stone Stone


+ 259 The year 2100 will see eugenics universally established. In past ages, the law governing the survival of the fittest roughly weeded out the less desirable strains. Then man's new sense of pity began to interfere with the ruthless workings of nature. As a result, we continue to keep alive and to breed the unfit. Nikola Tesla


+ 302 It seems that I have always been ahead of my time. I had to wait nineteen years before Niagara was harnessed by my system, fifteen years before the basic inventions for wireless which I gave to the world in 1893 were applied universally. Nikola Tesla


+ 296 The earth is bountiful, and where her bounty fails, nitrogen drawn from the air will refertilize her womb. I developed a process for this purpose in 1900. It was perfected fourteen years later under the stress of war by German chemists. Nikola Tesla

+ 312 In the beginning of God's creation of the heavens and the earth. Bereshit 1:1


+ 201 Now the earth was astonishingly empty, and darkness was on the face of the deep, and the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the water. Bereshit 1:2


+ 221 And God said, Let there be light, and there was light. Bereshit 1:3


+ 207 And God saw the light that it was good, and God separated between the light and between the darkness. Bereshit 1:4


+ 201 And God called the light day, and the darkness He called night, and it was evening and it was morning, one day. Bereshit 1:5


+ 203 And God said, Let there be an expanse in the midst of the water, and let it be a separation between water and water. Bereshit 1:6


+ 211 And God made the expanse and it separated between the water that was below the expanse and the water that was above the expanse, and it was so. Bereshit 1:7


+ 205 And God called the expanse Heaven, and it was evening, and it was morning, a second day. Bereshit 1:8


+ 191 And God said, Let the water that is beneath the heavens gather into one place, and let the dry land appear, and it was so. Bereshit 1:9


+ 200 And God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas, and God saw that it was good. Bereshit 1:10


+ 232 And God said, Let the earth sprout vegetation, seed yielding herbs and fruit trees producing fruit according to its kind in which its seed is found, on the earth, and it was so. Bereshit 1:11


+ 208 And the earth gave forth vegetation, seed yielding herbs according to its kind, and trees producing fruit, in which its seed is found, according to its kind, and God saw that it was good. Bereshit 1:12


+ 185 It was evening and it was morning, a third day. Bereshit 1:13


+ 200 God said, There shall be lights in the heavenly sky to divide between day and night. They shall serve as omens and define festivals, days and years. Bereshit 1:14


+ 165 They shall be lights in the heavenly sky, to shine on the earth. It happened. Bereshit 1:15


+ 190 And God made the two great luminaries: the great luminary to rule the day and the lesser luminary to rule the night, and the stars. Bereshit 1:16


+ 188 God placed them in the heavenly sky to shine on the earth, Bereshit 1:17


+ 175 to rule by day and by night, and to divide between the light and the darkness. God saw that it was good. Bereshit 1:18


+ 179 It was evening and it was morning, a fourth day. Bereshit 1:19


+ 203 God said, The water shall teem with swarms of living creatures. Flying creatures shall fly over the land, on the face of the heavenly sky. Bereshit 1:20


+ 198 And God created the great sea monsters, and every living creature that crawls, with which the waters swarmed, according to their kind, and every winged fowl, according to its kind, and God saw that it was good. Bereshit 1:21


+ 193 God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful and become many, and fill the waters of the seas. Let the flying creatures multiply on the land. Bereshit 1:22


+ 165 It was evening and it was morning, a fifth day. Bereshit 1:23


+ 195 God said, The earth shall bring forth particular species of living creatures, particular species of livestock, land animals, and beasts of the earth. It happened. Bereshit 1:24


+ 172 And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kind and the cattle according to their kind, and all the creeping things of the ground according to their kind, and God saw that it was good. Bereshit 1:25


+ 179 God said, Let us make man with our image and likeness. Let him dominate the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock animals, and all the earth - and every land animal that walks the earth. Bereshit 1:26


+ 192 God thus created man with His image. In the image of God, He created him, male and female He created them. Bereshit 1:27


+ 182 God blessed them. God said to them, Be fertile and become many. Fill the land and conquer it. Dominate the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every beast that walks the land. Bereshit 1:28


+ 184 God said, Behold, I have given you every seedbearing plant on the face of the earth, and every tree that has seedbearing fruit. It shall be to you for food. Bereshit 1:29


+ 179 For every beast of the field, every bird of the sky, and everything that walks the land, that has in it a living soul, all plant vegetation shall be food. It remained that way. Bereshit 1:30


+ 175 God saw all that he had made, and behold, it was very good. It was evening and it was morning, the sixth day. Bereshit 1:31


+ 168 Heaven and earth, and all their components, were thus completed. Bereshit 2:1


+ 179 A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden. From there it divided and became four major rivers. Bereshit 2:10


+ 168 The name of the first is Pishon. It surrounds the entire land of Havilah where gold is found. Bereshit 2:11


+ 167 The gold of that land is especially good. Also found there are pearls and precious stones. Bereshit 2:12


+ 159 The name of the second river is Gihon. It surrounds the land of Cush. Bereshit 2:13


+ 164 The name of the third river is the Tigris which flows to the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates. Bereshit 2:14


+ 198 God took the man and placed him in the Garden of Eden to work it and watch it. Bereshit 2:15


+ 170 God gave the man a commandment, saying, You may definitely eat from every tree of the garden. Bereshit 2:16


+ 156 But from the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil, do not eat, for on the day you eat from it, you will definitely die. Bereshit 2:17


+ 160 God said, It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a compatible helper for him. Bereshit 2:18


+ 196 God had formed every wild beast and every bird of heaven out of the ground. He now brought them to the man to see what he would name each one. Whatever the man called each living thing would remain its name. Bereshit 2:19


+ 161 God then made the man fall into a deep state of unconsciousness, and he slept. He took one of his ribs and closed the flesh in its place. Bereshit 2:21


+ 176 The serpent was the most cunning of all the wild beasts that God had made. The serpent asked the woman, Did God really say that you may not eat from any of the trees of the garden? Bereshit 3:1


+ 163 I heard Your voice in the garden, replied the man, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid. Bereshit 3:10


+ 153 God asked, Who told you that you are naked? Did you eat from the tree which I commanded you not to eat? Bereshit 3:11


+ 150 The man replied, The woman that you gave to be with me - she gave me what I ate from the tree. Bereshit 3:12


+ 142 God said to the woman, What is this that you have done? The woman replied, The serpent seduced me and I ate it. Bereshit 3:13


+ 185 God said to the serpent, Because you did this, cursed are you more than all the livestock and all the wild beasts. On your belly you shall crawl, and dust you shall eat, all the days of your life. Bereshit 3:14


+ 140 I will plant hatred between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike you in the head, and you will strike him in the heel. Bereshit 3:15


+ 176 To the woman He said, I will greatly increase your anguish and your pregnancy. It will be with anguish that you will give birth to children. Your passion will be to your husband, and he will dominate you. Bereshit 3:16


+ 200 To Adam He said, You listened to your wife, and ate from the tree regarding which I specifically gave you orders, saying, Do not eat from it. The ground will therefore be cursed because of you. You will derive food from it with anguish all the days of your life. Bereshit 3:17


+ 155 It will bring forth thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the grass of the field. Bereshit 3:18


+ 173 By the sweat of your brow you will eat bread. Finally you will return to the ground, for it was from the ground that you were taken. You are dust, and to dust you shall return. Bereshit 3:19


+ 157 God made leather garments for Adam and his wife and He clothed them. Bereshit 3:21


+ 159 The man knew his wife Eve. She conceived and gave birth to Cain. She said, I have gained a man with God. Bereshit 4:1


+ 151 God said, What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is screaming to Me from the ground. Bereshit 4:10


+ 171 Now you are cursed from the ground that opened its mouth to take your brother's blood from your hand. Bereshit 4:11


+ 183 When you work the ground, it will no longer give you of its strength. You will be restless and isolated in the world. Bereshit 4:12


+ 146 Cain said, My sin is too great to bear! Bereshit 4:13


+ 206 Behold, today You have banished me from the face of the earth, and I am to be hidden from Your face. I am to be restless and isolated in the world, and whoever finds me will kill me. Bereshit 4:14


+ 172 God said to him, Indeed! Whoever kills Cain will be punished seven times as much. God placed a mark on Cain so that whoever would find him would not kill him. Bereshit 4:15


+ 156 Cain went out from before God's presence. He settled in the land of Nod, to the east of Eden. Bereshit 4:16


+ 168 Cain knew his wife. She conceived and gave birth to Enoch. Cain was building a city, and he named the city Enoch, after his son. Bereshit 4:17


+ 118 Enoch had a son Irad. Irad had a son Mechuyael. Mechuyael had a son Methushael. Methushael had a son Lemekh. Bereshit 4:18


+ 154 Lemekh married two women. The first one's name was Adah, and the second one's name was Tzillah. Bereshit 4:19


+ 234 His brother's name was Yuval. He was the ancestor of all who play the harp and flute. Bereshit 4:21


+ 160 This is the book of the Chronicles of Adam: On the day that God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. Bereshit 5:1


+ 183 Adam lived 130 years, and he had a son in his likeness and form. He named him Seth. Bereshit 5:3


+ 154 Seth lived 105 years, and he had a son Enosh. Bereshit 5:6


+ 149 All of Seth's days were 912 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:8


+ 172 Enosh lived 815 years after he had Kenan, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:10


+ 165 All of Enosh's days were 905 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:11


+ 142 Kenan lived 70 years, and he had a son Mahalalel. Bereshit 5:12


+ 157 Kenan lived 840 years after he had Mahalalel, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:13


+ 154 All of Kenan's days were 910 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:14


+ 149 Mahalalel lived 65 years, and he had a son Yered. Bereshit 5:15


+ 150 Mahalalel lived 830 years after he had Yered, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:16


+ 138 All of Mahalalel's days were 895 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:17


+ 141 Yered lived 162 years, and he had a son Enoch. Bereshit 5:18


+ 138 Yered lived 800 years after he had Enoch, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:19


+ 136 Enoch lived 65 years, and he had a son Methuselah. Bereshit 5:21


+ 131 Methuselah lived 187 years, and he had a son Lemekh. Bereshit 5:25


+ 135 Lemekh lived 182 years, and he had a son. Bereshit 5:28


+ 142 All of Lemekh's days were 777 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:31


+ 160 Man began to increase on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them. Bereshit 6:1


+ 165 God said, My spirit will not continue to judge man forever, since he is nothing but flesh. His days shall be 120 years. Bereshit 6:3


+ 156 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Bereshit 6:10


+ 169 Now the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth became full of robbery. Bereshit 6:11


+ 172 And God saw the earth, and behold it had become corrupted, for all flesh had corrupted its way on the earth. Bereshit 6:12


+ 183 And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth has become full of robbery because of them, and behold I am destroying them from the earth. Bereshit 6:13


+ 152 Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with compartments, and you shall caulk it both inside and outside with pitch. Bereshit 6:14


+ 153 And this is the size you shall make it: three hundred cubits the length of the ark, fifty cubits its breadth, and thirty cubits its height. Bereshit 6:15


+ 164 You shall make a skylight for the ark, and to a cubit you shall finish it to the top, and the entrance of the ark you shall place in its side; you shall make it with bottom compartments, second story compartments, and third story compartments. Bereshit 6:16


+ 170 And I, behold I am bringing the flood, water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which there is the spirit of life, from beneath the heavens; all that is upon the earth will perish. Bereshit 6:17


+ 156 And I will set up My covenant with you, and you shall come into the ark, you and your sons, and your wife and your sons' wives with you. Bereshit 6:18


+ 152 And of all living things of all flesh, two of each you shall bring into the ark to preserve alive with you; they shall be male and female. Bereshit 6:19


+ 156 And you, take for yourself of every food that is eaten and gather it in to you, and it shall be for you and for them to eat. Bereshit 6:21


+ 199 And the Lord said to Noah, Come into the ark, you and all your household, for it is you that I have seen as a righteous man before Me in this generation. Bereshit 7:1


+ 145 And it came to pass after the seven days, that the flood waters were upon the earth. Bereshit 7:10


+ 187 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on this day, all the springs of the great deep were split, and the windows of the heavens opened up. Bereshit 7:11


+ 241 And the rain was upon the earth for forty days and forty nights. Bereshit 7:12


+ 148 On this very day, Noah came, and Shem and Ham and Japheth, Noah's sons, and Noah's wife and his sons three wives with them, into the ark. Bereshit 7:13


+ 148 They, and every beast after its kind, and every domestic animal after its kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every fowl after its kind, every bird of every wing. Bereshit 7:14


+ 151 And they came to Noah to the ark, two by two of all flesh in which there is the spirit of life. Bereshit 7:15


+ 141 And those who came male and female of all flesh came, as God had commanded him, and the Lord shut him in. Bereshit 7:16


+ 151 Now the Flood was forty days upon the earth, and the waters increased, and they lifted the ark, and it rose off the earth. Bereshit 7:17


+ 135 And the waters became powerful, and they increased very much upon the earth, and the ark moved upon the waters. Bereshit 7:18


+ 150 And the waters became exceedingly powerful upon the earth, and all the lofty mountains that were under the heavens were covered up. Bereshit 7:19


+ 160 And all flesh perished that moved upon the earth, among the fowl, and among the cattle, and among the beasts, and among all creeping creatures that creep upon the earth and all mankind. Bereshit 7:21


+ 161 And God remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the cattle that were with him in the ark, and God caused a spirit to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. Bereshit 8:1


+ 142 And he waited again another seven days, and he again sent forth the dove from the ark. Bereshit 8:10


+ 170 And the dove returned to him at eventide, and behold it had plucked an olive leaf in its mouth; so Noah knew that the water had abated from upon the earth. Bereshit 8:11


+ 150 And he again waited another seven days, and he sent forth the dove, and it no longer continued to return to him. Bereshit 8:12


+ 197 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, on the first of the month, that the waters dried up from upon the earth, and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and he saw, and behold, the surface of the ground had dried up. Bereshit 8:13


+ 147 And in the second month, on the twenty seventh day of the month, the earth was dry. Bereshit 8:14


+ 188 And God spoke to Noah saying: Bereshit 8:15


+ 158 Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons, and your sons wives with you. Bereshit 8:16


+ 164 Every living thing that is with you of all flesh, of fowl, and of animals and of all the creeping things that creep on the earth, bring out with you, and they shall swarm upon the earth, and they shall be fruitful and multiply upon the earth. Bereshit 8:17


+ 167 So Noah went out, and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him. Bereshit 8:18


+ 154 Every beast, every creeping thing, and all fowl, everything that moves upon the earth, according to their families they went forth from the ark. Bereshit 8:19


+ 201 And the Lord smelled the pleasant aroma, and the Lord said to Himself, I will no longer curse the earth because of man, for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth, and I will no longer smite all living things as I have done. Bereshit 8:21


+ 168 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and He said to them: Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. Bereshit 9:1


+ 154 And with every living creature that is with you, among the fowl, among the cattle, and among all the beasts of the earth with you, of all those who came out of the ark, of all the living creatures of the earth. Bereshit 9:10


+ 170 And I will establish My covenant with you, and never again will all flesh be cut off by the flood waters, and there will never again be a flood to destroy the earth. Bereshit 9:11


+ 175 And God said: This is the sign of the covenant, which I am placing between Me and between you, and between every living soul that is with you, for everlasting generations. Bereshit 9:12


+ 160 My rainbow I have placed in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Myself and the earth. Bereshit 9:13


+ 151 And it shall come to pass, when I cause clouds to come upon the earth, that the rainbow will appear in the cloud. Bereshit 9:14


+ 190 And I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and between you and between every living creature among all flesh, and the water will no longer become a flood to destroy all flesh. Bereshit 9:15


+ 171 And the rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will see it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and between every living creature among all flesh, which is on the earth. Bereshit 9:16


+ 187 And God said to Noah: This is the sign of the covenant that I have set up, between Myself and between all flesh that is on the earth. Bereshit 9:17


+ 263 And the sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and Ham he was the father of Canaan. Bereshit 9:18


+ 169 These three were the sons of Noah, and from these, the entire earth spread out. Bereshit 9:19


+ 159 And he drank of the wine and became drunk, and he uncovered himself within his tent. Bereshit 9:21


+ 166 And these are the generations of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and sons were born to them after the Flood. Bereshit 10:1


+ 160 The sons of Japheth were Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan and Tubal, and Meshech and Tiras. Bereshit 10:2


+ 161 And the sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz and Riphath and Togarmah. Bereshit 10:3


+ 143 And the sons of Javan were Elishah and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. Bereshit 10:4


+ 146 From these, the islands of the nations separated in their lands, each one to his language, according to their families, in their nations. Bereshit 10:5


+ 141 And the sons of Ham were Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan. Bereshit 10:6


+ 163 And the sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah and Sabta and Raamah and Sabtecha, and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. Bereshit 10:7


+ 158 And Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty man in the land. Bereshit 10:8


+ 145 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord. Bereshit 10:9


+ 127 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babylon and Erech and Accad and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. Bereshit 10:10


+ 160 From that land emerged Asshur, and he built Nineveh and Rehoboth ir and Calah. Bereshit 10:11


+ 142 And Resen, between Nineveh and between Calah; that is the great city. Bereshit 10:12


+ 185 And Mizraim begot the Ludim and the Anamim and the Lehabim and the Naphtuhim, Bereshit 10:13


+ 159 And the Pathrusim and the Casluhim, from whom the Philistines emerged, and the Caphtorim. Bereshit 10:14


+ 154 And Canaan begot Zidon his firstborn and Heth. Bereshit 10:15


+ 152 And the Jebusites and the Amorites and the Girgashites. Bereshit 10:16


+ 137 And the Hivvites and the Arkites and the Sinites. Bereshit 10:17


+ 151 And the Arvadites and the Zemarites and the Hamathites, and afterwards the families of the Canaanites were scattered. Bereshit 10:18


+ 199 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as you come to Gerar, until Gaza, as you come to Sodom and Gomorrah, and Admah and Zeboiim, until Lesha. Bereshit 10:19


+ 152 These are the sons of Ham according to their families, and their tongues, in their lands, in their nations. Bereshit 10:20


+ 168 And to Shem were also born children; he was the father of all the people of the other side of the river, the brother of Japheth the elder. Bereshit 10:21


+ 159 The sons of Shem were Elam and Asshur and Arpachshad and Lud and Aram. Bereshit 10:22


+ 150 And the sons of Aram were Uz and Hul and Gether and Mash. Bereshit 10:23


+ 168 And Arpachshad begot Shelah, and Shelah begot Eber. Bereshit 10:24


+ 196 And to Eber were born two sons: one was named Peleg, because in his days the earth was divided, and the name of his brother was Joktan. Bereshit 10:25


+ 158 And Joktan begot Almodad and Sheleph and Hazarmaveth and Jerah. Bereshit 10:26


+ 149 And Hadoram and Uzal and Diklah. Bereshit 10:27


+ 138 And Obal and Abimael and Sheba. Bereshit 10:28


+ 173 And Ophir and Havilah and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan. Bereshit 10:29


+ 138 And their settlement was from Mesha, as you come to Sephar, the mountain of the east. Bereshit 10:30


+ 157 These are the sons of Shem according to their families, according to their tongues, in their lands, according to their nations. Bereshit 10:31


+ 207 These are the families of the sons of Noah according to their generations, in their nations, and from these, the nations were separated on the earth after the Flood. Bereshit 10:32


+ 163 Now the entire earth was of one language and uniform words. Bereshit 11:1


+ 167 And it came to pass when they traveled from the east, that they found a valley in the land of Shinar and settled there. Bereshit 11:2


+ 182 And they said to one another, Come, let us make bricks and fire them thoroughly; so the bricks were to them for stones, and the clay was to them for mortar. Bereshit 11:3


+ 196 And they said, Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make ourselves a name, lest we be scattered upon the face of the entire earth. Bereshit 11:4


+ 210 And the Lord descended to see the city and the tower that the sons of man had built. Bereshit 11:5


+ 165 And the Lord said, Lo! they are one people, and they all have one language, and this is what they have commenced to do. Now, will it not be withheld from them, all that they have planned to do? Bereshit 11:6


+ 164 Come, let us descend and confuse their language, so that one will not understand the language of his companion. Bereshit 11:7


+ 162 And the Lord scattered them from there upon the face of the entire earth, and they ceased building the city. Bereshit 11:8


+ 182 Therefore, He named it Babel, for there the Lord confused the language of the entire earth, and from there the Lord scattered them upon the face of the entire earth. Bereshit 11:9


+ 168 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was one hundred years old, and he begot Arpachshad, two years after the Flood. Bereshit 11:10


+ 174 And Shem lived after he had begotten Arpachshad five hundred years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:11


+ 176 And Arpachshad lived thirty five years, and he begot Shelah. Bereshit 11:12


+ 180 And Arpachshad lived after he had begotten Shelah four hundred and three years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:13


+ 156 And Shelah lived thirty years, and he begot Eber. Bereshit 11:14


+ 150 And Shelah lived after he had begotten Eber, four hundred and three years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:15


+ 172 And Eber lived thirty four years, and he begot Peleg. Bereshit 11:16


+ 191 And Eber lived after he had begotten Peleg, four hundred and thirty years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:17


+ 180 And Peleg lived thirty years, and he begot Reu. Bereshit 11:18


+ 189 And Peleg lived after he had begotten Reu, two hundred and nine years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:19


+ 165 And Reu lived thirty two years, and he begot Serug. Bereshit 11:20


+ 179 And Reu lived after he had begotten Serug two hundred and seven years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:21


+ 173 And Serug lived thirty years, and he begot Nahor. Bereshit 11:22


+ 175 And Serug lived after he had begotten Nahor, two hundred years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:23


+ 163 And Nahor lived twenty nine years, and he begot Terah. Bereshit 11:24


+ 175 And Nahor lived after he had begotten Terah one hundred and nineteen years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:25


+ 188 And Terah lived seventy years, and he begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Bereshit 11:26


+ 158 And these are the generations of Terah: Terah begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran, and Haran begot Lot. Bereshit 11:27


+ 174 And Haran died during the lifetime of Terah his father in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldees. Bereshit 11:28


+ 156 And Abram and Nahor took themselves wives; the name of Abram's wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor's wife was Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah and the father of Iscah. Bereshit 11:29


+ 127 And Sarai was barren; she had no child. Bereshit 11:30


+ 197 And Terah took Abram his son and Lot the son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter in law, the wife of Abram his son, and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees to go to the land of Canaan, and they came as far as Haran and settled there. Bereshit 11:31


+ 144 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years, and Terah died in Haran. Bereshit 11:32


+ 161 And the Lord said to Abram, Go forth from your land and from your birthplace and from your father's house, to the land that I will show you. Bereshit 12:1


+ 155 And I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you, and I will aggrandize your name, and you shall be a blessing. Bereshit 12:2


+ 163 And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse, and all the families of the earth shall be blessed in you. Bereshit 12:3


+ 161 And Abram went, as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him, and Abram was seventy five years old when he left Haran. Bereshit 12:4


+ 167 And Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had acquired, and the souls they had acquired in Haran, and they went to go to the land of Canaan, and they came to the land of Canaan. Bereshit 12:5


+ 164 And Abram passed through the land, until the place of Shechem, until the plain of Moreh, and the Canaanites were then in the land. Bereshit 12:6


+ 154 And the Lord appeared to Abram, and He said, To your seed I will give this land, and there he built an altar to the Lord, Who had appeared to him. Bereshit 12:7


+ 167 And he moved from there to the mountain, east of Beth el, and he pitched his tent; Beth el was to the west and Ai was to the east, and there he built an altar to the Lord, and he called in the name of the Lord. Bereshit 12:8


+ 132 And Abram traveled, continually traveling southward. Bereshit 12:9


+ 177 And there was a famine in the land, and Abram descended to Egypt to sojourn there because the famine was severe in the land. Bereshit 12:10


+ 161 Now it came to pass when he drew near to come to Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, Behold now I know that you are a woman of fair appearance. Bereshit 12:11


+ 155 And it will come to pass when the Egyptians see you, that they will say, This is his wife, and they will slay me and let you live. Bereshit 12:12


+ 171 Please say that you are my sister, in order that it go well with me because of you, and that my soul may live because of you. Bereshit 12:13


+ 148 And it came to pass when Abram came to Egypt, that the Egyptians saw the woman, that she was very pretty. Bereshit 12:14


+ 152 And Pharaoh's princes saw her, and they praised her to Pharaoh, and the woman was taken to the house of Pharaoh. Bereshit 12:15


+ 189 And he benefited Abram for her sake, and he had flocks and cattle and he donkeys and men servants and maid servants, and she donkeys and camels. Bereshit 12:16


+ 167 And the Lord plagued Pharaoh with great plagues as well as his household, on account of Sarai, Abram's wife. Bereshit 12:17


+ 167 And Pharaoh summoned Abram, and he said, What is this that you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife? Bereshit 12:18


+ 154 Why did you say, She is my sister, so that I took her to myself for a wife? And now, here is your wife; take her and go. Bereshit 12:19


+ 147 And Pharaoh commanded men on his behalf, and they escorted him and his wife and all that was his. Bereshit 12:20


+ 159 And Abram came up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that was his, and Lot with him, to the south. Bereshit 13:1


+ 152 And Abram was very heavy with cattle, with silver, and with gold. Bereshit 13:2


+ 160 And he went on his journeys, from the south and until Beth el, until the place where his tent had been previously, between Beth el and between Ai. Bereshit 13:3


+ 142 To the place of the altar that he had made at first, and Abram called there in the name of the Lord. Bereshit 13:4


+ 163 And also Lot, who went with Abram, had flocks and cattle and tents. Bereshit 13:5


+ 148 And the land did not bear them to dwell together, for their possessions were many, and they could not dwell together. Bereshit 13:6


+ 174 And there was a quarrel between the herdsmen of Abram's cattle and between the herdsmen of Lot's cattle, and the Canaanites and the Perizzites were then dwelling in the land. Bereshit 13:7


+ 183 And Abram said to Lot, Please let there be no quarrel between me and between you and between my herdsmen and between your herdsmen, for we are kinsmen. Bereshit 13:8


+ 174 Is not all the land before you? Please part from me; if you go left, I will go right, and if you go right, I will go left. Bereshit 13:9


+ 175 And Lot raised his eyes, and he saw the entire plain of the Jordan, that it was entirely watered; before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as you come to Zoar. Bereshit 13:10


+ 168 And Lot chose for himself the entire plain of the Jordan, and Lot traveled from the east, and they parted from one another. Bereshit 13:11


+ 170 Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain, and he pitched his tents until Sodom. Bereshit 13:12


+ 172 And the people of Sodom were very evil and sinful against the Lord. Bereshit 13:13


+ 190 And the Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, Please raise your eyes and see, from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward. Bereshit 13:14


+ 147 For all the land that you see I will give to you and to your seed to eternity. Bereshit 13:15


+ 156 And I will make your seed like the dust of the earth, so that if a man will be able to count the dust of the earth, so will your seed be counted. Bereshit 13:16


+ 148 Rise, walk in the land, to its length and to its breadth, for I will give it to you. Bereshit 13:17


+ 153 And Abram pitched his tents, and he came, and he dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and there he built an altar to the Lord. Bereshit 13:18


+ 148 Now it came to pass in the days of Amraphel the king of Shinar, Arioch the king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and Tidal the king of Goyim. Bereshit 14:1


+ 163 That they waged war with Bera the king of Sodom and with Birsha the king of Gomorrah, Shineab the king of Admah, and Shemeber the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar. Bereshit 14:2


+ 150 All these joined in the valley of Siddim, which is the Dead Sea. Bereshit 14:3


+ 138 For twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and for thirteen years they rebelled. Bereshit 14:4


+ 189 And in the fourteenth year, Chedorlaomer came, and the kings who were with him, and they smote the Rephaim in Ashteroth Karnaim and the Zuzim in Ham, and the Emim in Shaveh Kiriathaim. Bereshit 14:5


+ 156 And the Horites in their mountain Seir, until the plain of Paran, which is alongside the desert. Bereshit 14:6


+ 187 And they returned and came to Ein Mishpat, which is Kadesh, and they smote the entire field of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites who dwelt in Hazezon Tamar. Bereshit 14:7


+ 182 And the king of Sodom and the king of Gomorrah and the king of Admah and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar, came forth, and they engaged them in battle in the valley of Siddim. Bereshit 14:8


+ 182 With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam and Tidal the king of Goyim and Amraphel the king of Shinar and Arioch the king of Ellasar, four kings against the five. Bereshit 14:9


+ 190 Now the valley of Siddim was composed of many clay pits, and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled and they fell there, and the survivors fled to a mountain. Bereshit 14:10


+ 160 And they took all the possessions of Sodom and Gomorrah and all their food, and they departed. Bereshit 14:11


+ 162 And they took Lot and his possessions, the son of Abram's brother, and they departed, and he was living in Sodom. Bereshit 14:12


+ 154 And the fugitive came and he told Abram the Hebrew, and he was living in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, the brother of Eshkol and the brother of Aner, who were Abram's confederates. Bereshit 14:13


+ 214 And Abram heard that his kinsman had been taken captive, and he armed his trained men, those born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and he pursued them until Dan. Bereshit 14:14


+ 178 And he divided himself against them at night, he and his servants, and smote them, and pursued them until Hobah, which is to the left of Damascus. Bereshit 14:15


+ 160 And he restored all the possessions, and also Lot his brother and his possessions he restored, and also the women and the people. Bereshit 14:16


+ 248 And the king of Sodom came out toward him, after his return from smiting Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, to the valley of Shaveh, which is the valley of the king. Bereshit 14:17


+ 172 And Malchizedek the king of Salem brought out bread and wine, and he was a priest to the Most High God. Bereshit 14:18


+ 143 And he blessed him, and he said, Blessed be Abram to the Most High God, Who possesses heaven and earth. Bereshit 14:19


+ 150 And blessed be the Most High God, Who has delivered your adversaries into your hand, and he gave him a tithe from all. Bereshit 14:20


+ 162 And the king of Sodom said to Abram, Give me the souls, and the possessions take for yourself. Bereshit 14:21


+ 161 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I raise my hand to the Lord, the Most High God, Who possesses heaven and earth. Bereshit 14:22


+ 152 Neither from a thread to a shoe strap, nor will I take from whatever is yours, that you should not say, I have made Abram wealthy. Bereshit 14:23


+ 181 Exclusive of what the lads ate, and the share of the men who went with me; Aner, Eshkol, and Mamre they shall take their share. Bereshit 14:24


+ 172 After these incidents, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram; I am your Shield; your reward is exceedingly great. Bereshit 15:1


+ 173 And Abram said, O Lord God, what will You give me, since I am going childless, and the steward of my household is Eliezer of Damascus? Bereshit 15:2


+ 184 And Abram said, Behold, You have given me no seed, and behold, one of my household will inherit me. Bereshit 15:3


+ 161 And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, This one will not inherit you, but the one who will spring from your innards-he will inherit you. Bereshit 15:4


+ 166 And He took him outside, and He said, Please look heavenward and count the stars, if you are able to count them. And He said to him, So will be your seed. Bereshit 15:5


+ 156 And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him as righteousness. Bereshit 15:6


+ 150 And He said to him, I am the Lord, Who brought you forth from Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it. Bereshit 15:7


+ 152 And he said, O Lord God, how will I know that I will inherit it? Bereshit 15:8


+ 166 And He said to him, Take for Me three heifers and three goats and three rams, and a turtle dove and a young bird. Bereshit 15:9


+ 157 And he took for Him all these, and he divided them in the middle, and he placed each part opposite its mate, but he did not divide the birds. Bereshit 15:10


+ 170 And the birds of prey descended upon the carcasses, and Abram drove them away. Bereshit 15:11


+ 159 Now the sun was ready to set, and a deep sleep fell upon Abram, and behold, a fright, a great darkness was falling upon him. Bereshit 15:12


+ 175 And He said to Abram, You shall surely know that your seed will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and they will enslave them and oppress them, for four hundred years. Bereshit 15:13


+ 132 And also the nation that they will serve will I judge, and afterwards they will go forth with great possessions. Bereshit 15:14


+ 139 But you will come to your forefathers in peace; you will be buried in a good old age. Bereshit 15:15


+ 148 And the fourth generation will return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites will not be complete until then. Bereshit 15:16


+ 150 Now it came to pass that the sun had set, and it was dark, and behold, a smoking furnace and a fire brand, which passed between these parts. Bereshit 15:17


+ 165 On that day, the Lord formed a covenant with Abram, saying, To your seed I have given this land, from the river of Egypt until the great river, the Euphrates river. Bereshit 15:18


+ 134 The Kenites, the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, Bereshit 15:19


+ 151 And the Hittites and the Perizzites and the Rephaim, Bereshit 15:20


+ 136 And the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Girgashites and the Jebusites. Bereshit 15:21


+ 144 Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had not borne to him, and she had an Egyptian handmaid named Hagar. Bereshit 16:1


+ 186 And Sarai said to Abram, Behold now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing; please come to my handmaid; perhaps I will be built up from her. And Abram hearkened to Sarai's voice. Bereshit 16:2


+ 163 So Sarai, Abram's wife, took Hagar the Egyptian, her handmaid, at the end of ten years of Abram's dwelling in the land of Canaan, and she gave her to Abram her husband for a wife. Bereshit 16:3


+ 152 And he came to Hagar, and she conceived, and she saw that she was pregnant, and her mistress became unimportant in her eyes. Bereshit 16:4


+ 177 And Sarai said to Abram, May my injustice be upon you! I gave my handmaid into your bosom, and she saw that she had become pregnant, and I became unimportant in her eyes. May the Lord judge between me and you! Bereshit 16:5


+ 168 And Abram said to Sarai, Here is your handmaid in your hand; do to her that which is proper in your eyes. And Sarai afflicted her, and she fled from before her. Bereshit 16:6


+ 146 And an angel of the Lord found her by a water fountain in the desert, by the fountain on the road to Shur. Bereshit 16:7


+ 161 And he said, Hagar, Sarai's servant, where are you coming from, and where are you going to? And she said, From before Sarai my mistress, I am fleeing. Bereshit 16:8


+ 152 And the angel of the Lord said to her, Return to your mistress, and allow yourself to be afflicted under her hands. Bereshit 16:9


+ 173 And the angel of the Lord said to her, I will greatly multiply your seed, and it will not be counted for abundance. Bereshit 16:10


+ 160 And the angel of the Lord said to her, Behold, you will conceive and bear a son, and you shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard your affliction. Bereshit 16:11


+ 158 And he will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be upon all, and everyone's hand upon him, and before all his brothers he will dwell. Bereshit 16:12


+ 159 And she called the name of the Lord, Who had spoken to her, You are the God of seeing, because she said, Have I seen him here also after I have seen? Bereshit 16:13


+ 161 Therefore the well was called Be'er Lachai Ro'i; behold it is between Kadesh and between Bered. Bereshit 16:14


+ 155 And Hagar bore a son to Abram, and Abram named his son, whom Hagar had borne, Ishmael. Bereshit 16:15


+ 151 And Abram was eighty-six years old, when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram. Bereshit 16:16


+ 169 And Abram was ninety-nine years old, and God appeared to Abram, and He said to him, I am the Almighty God; walk before Me and be perfect. Bereshit 17:1


+ 162 And I will place My covenant between Me and between you, and I will multiply you very greatly. Bereshit 17:2


+ 118 And Abram fell upon his face, and God spoke with him, saying, Bereshit 17:3


+ 157 As for Me, behold My covenant is with you, and you shall become the father of a multitude of nations. Bereshit 17:4


+ 177 And your name shall no longer be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. Bereshit 17:5


+ 154 And I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings will emerge from you. Bereshit 17:6


+ 173 And I will establish My covenant between Me and between you and between your seed after you throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant, to be to you for a God and to your seed after you. Bereshit 17:7


+ 168 And I will give you and your seed after you the land of your sojournings, the entire land of Canaan for an everlasting possession, and I will be to them for a God. Bereshit 17:8


+ 171 And God said to Abraham, And you shall keep My covenant, you and your seed after you throughout their generations. Bereshit 17:9


+ 186 This is My covenant, which you shall observe between Me and between you and between your seed after you, that every male among you be circumcised. Bereshit 17:10


+ 157 And you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall be as the sign of a covenant between Me and between you. Bereshit 17:11


+ 185 And at the age of eight days, every male shall be circumcised to you throughout your generations, one that is born in the house, or one that is purchased with money, from any foreigner, who is not of your seed. Bereshit 17:12


+ 186 Those born in the house and those purchased for money shall be circumcised, and My covenant shall be in your flesh as an everlasting covenant. Bereshit 17:13


+ 184 And an uncircumcised male, who will not circumcise the flesh of his foreskin-that soul will be cut off from its people; he has broken My covenant. Bereshit 17:14


+ 161 And God said to Abraham, Your wife Sarai-you shall not call her name Sarai, for Sarah is her name. Bereshit 17:15


+ 147 And I will bless her, and I will give you a son from her, and I will bless her, and she will become a mother of nations; kings of nations will be from her. Bereshit 17:16


+ 186 And Abraham fell on his face and rejoiced, and he said to himself, Will a child be born to one who is a hundred years old, and will Sarah, who is ninety years old, give birth? Bereshit 17:17


+ 152 And Abraham said to God, If only Ishmael will live before You! Bereshit 17:18


+ 185 And God said, Indeed, your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you shall name him Isaac, and I will establish My covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his seed after him. Bereshit 17:19


+ 159 And regarding Ishmael, I have heard you; behold I have blessed him, and I will make him fruitful, and I will multiply him exceedingly; he will beget twelve princes, and I will make him into a great nation. Bereshit 17:20


+ 168 But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this time next year. Bereshit 17:21


+ 164 And He finished speaking with him, and God went up from above Abraham. Bereshit 17:22


+ 197 And Abraham took Ishmael his son and all those born in his house and all those purchased with his money, every male of the people of Abraham's household, and he circumcised the flesh of their foreskin on that very day, as God had spoken with him. Bereshit 17:23


+ 179 And Abraham was ninety-nine years old, when he was circumcised of the flesh of his foreskin. Bereshit 17:24


+ 169 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised of the flesh of his foreskin. Bereshit 17:25


+ 146 On that very day, Abraham was circumcised, and so was Ishmael his son. Bereshit 17:26


+ 176 And all the people of his household, those born in his house and those bought with money from foreigners, were circumcised with him. Bereshit 17:27


+ 168 Now the Lord appeared to him in the plains of Mamre, and he was sitting at the entrance of the tent when the day was hot. Bereshit 18:1


+ 172 And he lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, three men were standing beside him, and he saw and he ran toward them from the entrance of the tent, and he prostrated himself to the ground. Bereshit 18:2


+ 189 And he said, My lords, if only I have found favor in your eyes, please do not pass on from beside your servant. Bereshit 18:3


+ 154 Please let a little water be taken, and bathe your feet, and recline under the tree. Bereshit 18:4


+ 184 And I will take a morsel of bread, and sustain your hearts; after wards you shall pass on, because you have passed by your servant. And they said, So shall you do, as you have spoken. Bereshit 18:5


+ 187 And Abraham hastened to the tent to Sarah, and he said, Hasten three seah of meal and fine flour; knead and make cakes. Bereshit 18:6


+ 167 And to the cattle did Abraham run, and he took a calf, tender and good, and he gave it to the youth, and he hastened to prepare it. Bereshit 18:7


+ 144 And he took cream and milk and the calf that he had prepared, and he placed them before them, and he was standing over them under the tree, and they ate. Bereshit 18:8


+ 145 And they said to him, Where is Sarah your wife? And he said, Behold in the tent. Bereshit 18:9


+ 164 And he said, I will surely return to you at this time next year, and behold, your wife Sarah will have a son. And Sarah heard from the entrance of the tent, and it was behind him. Bereshit 18:10


+ 176 Now Abraham and Sarah were old, coming on in years; Sarah had ceased to have the way of the women. Bereshit 18:11


+ 162 And Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I have become worn out, will I have smooth flesh? And also, my master is old. Bereshit 18:12


+ 156 And the Lord said to Abraham, Why did Sarah laugh, saying, Is it really true that I will give birth, although I am old? Bereshit 18:13


+ 169 Is anything hidden from the Lord? At the appointed time, I will return to you, at this time next year and Sarah will have a son. Bereshit 18:14


+ 155 And Sarah denied, saying, I did not laugh, because she was afraid. And He said, No, but you laughed. Bereshit 18:15


+ 155 And the men arose from there, and they looked upon Sodom, and Abraham went with them to escort them, Bereshit 18:16


+ 159 And the Lord said, Shall I conceal from Abraham what I am doing? Bereshit 18:17


+ 178 And Abraham will become a great and powerful nation, and all the nations of the world will be blessed in him. Bereshit 18:18


+ 198 For I have known him because he commands his sons and his household after him, that they should keep the way of the Lord to perform righteousness and justice, in order that the Lord bring upon Abraham that which He spoke concerning him. Bereshit 18:19


+ 163 And the Lord said, Since the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah has become great, and since their sin has become very grave, Bereshit 18:20


+ 164 I will descend now and see, whether according to her cry, which has come to Me, they have done; I will wreak destruction upon them; and if not, I will know. Bereshit 18:21


+ 146 And the men turned from there and went to Sodom, and Abraham was still standing before the Lord. Bereshit 18:22


+ 164 And Abraham approached and said, Will You even destroy the righteous with the wicked? Bereshit 18:23


+ 155 Perhaps there are fifty righteous men in the midst of the city; will You even destroy and not forgive the place for the sake of the fifty righteous men who are in its midst? Bereshit 18:24


+ 147 Far be it from You to do a thing such as this, to put to death the righteous with the wicked so that the righteous should be like the wicked. Far be it from You! Will the Judge of the entire earth not perform justice? Bereshit 18:25


+ 143 And the Lord said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous men within the city, I will forgive the entire place for their sake. Bereshit 18:26


+ 160 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now I have commenced to speak to the Lord, although I am dust and ashes. Bereshit 18:27


+ 159 Perhaps the fifty righteous men will be missing five. Will You destroy the entire city because of five? And He said, I will not destroy if I find there forty-five. Bereshit 18:28


+ 150 And he continued further to speak to Him, and he said, Perhaps forty will be found there. And He said, I will not do it for the sake of the forty. Bereshit 18:29


+ 150 And he said, Please, let the Lord's wrath not be kindled, and I will speak. Perhaps thirty will be found there. And He said, I will not do it if I find thirty there. Bereshit 18:30


+ 144 And he said, Behold now I have desired to speak to the Lord, perhaps twenty will be found there. And He said, I will not destroy for the sake of the twenty. Bereshit 18:31


+ 159 And he said, Please, let the Lord's wrath not be kindled, and I will speak yet this time, perhaps ten will be found there. And He said, I will not destroy for the sake of the ten. Bereshit 18:32


+ 150 And the Lord departed when He finished speaking to Abraham, and Abraham returned to his place. Bereshit 18:33


+ 160 And the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom, and Lot saw and arose toward them, and he prostrated himself on his face to the ground. Bereshit 19:1


+ 177 And he said, Behold now my lords, please turn to your servant's house and stay overnight and wash your feet, and you shall arise early and go on your way. And they said, No, but we will stay overnight in the street. Bereshit 19:2


+ 163 And he urged them strongly, and they turned in to him, and came into his house, and he made them a feast, and he baked unleavened cakes, and they ate. Bereshit 19:3


+ 147 When they had not yet retired, and the people of the city, the people of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old, the entire populace from every end of the city. Bereshit 19:4


+ 157 And they called to Lot and said to him, Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, and let us be intimate with them. Bereshit 19:5


+ 150 And Lot came out to them to the entrance, and he shut the door behind him. Bereshit 19:6


+ 150 And he said, My brethren, please do not do evil. Bereshit 19:7


+ 187 Behold now I have two daughters who were not intimate with a man. I will bring them out to you, and do to them as you see fit; only to these men do nothing, because they have come under the shadow of my roof. Bereshit 19:8


+ 165 But they said, Back away. And they said, This one came to sojourn, and he is judging! Now, we will deal even worse with you than with them. And they pressed hard upon the man Lot, and they drew near to break the door. Bereshit 19:9


+ 165 And the men stretched forth their hands, and they brought Lot to them to the house, and they shut the door. Bereshit 19:10


+ 179 And the men who were at the entrance of the house they struck with blindness, both small and great, and they toiled in vain to find the entrance. Bereshit 19:11


+ 155 And the men said to Lot, Whom else do you have here? A son-in-law, your sons, and your daughters, and whomever you have in the city, take out of the place. Bereshit 19:12


+ 148 For we are destroying this place, because their cry has become great before the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it. Bereshit 19:13


+ 177 So Lot went forth and spoke to his sons-in-law, the suitors of his daughters, and he said, Arise, go forth from this place, for the Lord is destroying the city, but he seemed like a comedian in the eyes of his sons-in-law. Bereshit 19:14


+ 181 And as the dawn rose, the angels pressed Lot, saying, Get up, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you perish because of the iniquity of the city. Bereshit 19:15


+ 135 But he tarried, and the men took hold of his hand and his wife's hand, and the hand of his two daughters, out of the Lord's pity for him, and they took him out and placed him outside the city. Bereshit 19:16


+ 169 And it came to pass, when they took them outside, that he said, Flee for your life, do not look behind you, and do not stand in the entire plain. Flee to the mountain, lest you perish. Bereshit 19:17


+ 144 And Lot said to them, Please, do not, O Lord. Bereshit 19:18


+ 178 Behold now, Your servant has found favor in Your eyes, and You have increased Your kindness, which You have done with me, to sustain my soul. But I cannot flee to the mountain, lest the evil overtake me, and I die. Bereshit 19:19


+ 175 Behold now, this city is near to flee there, and it is small. Let me please flee there. Is it not small? And my soul will survive. Bereshit 19:20


+ 152 And he said to him, Behold I have favored you also as regards this matter, that I will not overturn the city that you have mentioned. Bereshit 19:21


+ 164 Hasten, flee there, for I will not be able to do anything until you arrive there. Therefore, he named the city Zoar. Bereshit 19:22


+ 141 The sun came out upon the earth, and Lot came to Zoar. Bereshit 19:23


+ 154 And the Lord caused to rain down upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire, from the Lord, from heaven. Bereshit 19:24


+ 155 And He turned over these cities and the entire plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and the vegetation of the ground. Bereshit 19:25


+ 149 And his wife looked from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. Bereshit 19:26


+ 145 And Abraham arose early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. Bereshit 19:27


+ 170 And he looked over the face of Sodom and Gomorrah and over the entire face of the land of the plain, and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the earth had risen like the smoke of a furnace. Bereshit 19:28


+ 178 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and He sent Lot out of the midst of the destruction when He overturned the cities in which Lot had dwelt. Bereshit 19:29


+ 155 And Lot went up from Zoar, and he dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters were with him, for he was afraid to dwell in Zoar; so he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. Bereshit 19:30


+ 159 And the elder said to the younger, Our father is old, and there is no man on earth to come upon us, as is the custom of all the earth. Bereshit 19:31


+ 163 Come, let us give our father wine to drink, and let us lie with him, and let us bring to life seed from our father. Bereshit 19:32


+ 168 And they gave their father wine to drink on that night, and the elder came and lay with her father, and he did not know of her lying down or of her rising up. Bereshit 19:33


+ 178 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the elder said to the younger, Behold, last night I lay with my father. Let us give him wine to drink tonight too, and come, lie with him, and let us bring to life seed from our father. Bereshit 19:34


+ 171 So they gave their father to drink on that night also, and the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know of her lying down or of her rising up. Bereshit 19:35


+ 149 And Lot's two daughters conceived from their father. Bereshit 19:36


+ 144 And the elder bore a son, and she named him Moab; he is the father of Moab until this day. Bereshit 19:37


+ 154 And the younger, she too bore a son, and she named him Ben-ami; he is the father of the children of Ammon until this day. Bereshit 19:38


+ 142 And Abraham traveled from there to the land of the south, and he dwelt between Kadesh and between Shur, and he sojourned in Gerar. Bereshit 20:1


+ 172 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What did you see, that you did this thing? Bereshit 20:10


+ 165 And Abraham said, For I said, Surely, there is no fear of God in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife. Bereshit 20:11


+ 157 And also, indeed, she is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife. Bereshit 20:12


+ 165 And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said to her: This is your kindness, which you shall do with me: whither we come, say about me, He is my brother. Bereshit 20:13


+ 181 And Abimelech took flocks and cattle and menservants and maidservants, and he gave them to Abraham, and he restored to him his wife Sarah. Bereshit 20:14


+ 158 And Abimelech said, Here is my land before you; wherever it pleases you, you may dwell. Bereshit 20:15


+ 178 And to Sarah he said, Behold I have given a thousand pieces of silver to your brother; behold it is to you a covering of the eyes for all who are with you, and with all you shall contend. Bereshit 20:16


+ 147 And Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his handmaids, and they gave birth. Bereshit 20:17


+ 177 For the Lord had shut every womb of Abimelech's household, because of Sarah, Abraham's wife. Bereshit 20:18


+ 138 And the Lord remembered Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did to Sarah as He had spoken. Bereshit 21:1


+ 178 And Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the time of which God had spoken to him. Bereshit 21:2


+ 175 And Abraham named his son who had been born to him, whom Sarah had borne to him, Isaac. Bereshit 21:3


+ 167 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. Bereshit 21:4


+ 166 And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born to him. Bereshit 21:5


+ 142 And Sarah said, God has made joy for me; whoever hears will rejoice over me. Bereshit 21:6


+ 151 And she said, Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children, for I have borne a son to his old age! Bereshit 21:7


+ 181 And the child grew and was weaned, and Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. Bereshit 21:8


+ 176 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, making merry. Bereshit 21:9


+ 175 And Sarah said to Abraham, Drive out this handmaid and her son, for the son of this handmaid shall not inherit with my son, with Isaac. Bereshit 21:10


+ 147 But the matter greatly displeased Abraham, concerning his son. Bereshit 21:11


+ 190 And God said to Abraham, Be not displeased concerning the lad and concerning your handmaid; whatever Sarah tells you, hearken to her voice, for in Isaac will be called your seed. Bereshit 21:12


+ 169 But also the son of the handmaid I will make into a nation, because he is your seed. Bereshit 21:13


+ 190 And Abraham arose early in the morning, and he took bread and a leather pouch of water, and he gave them to Hagar, he placed them on her shoulder, and the child, and he sent her away; and she went and wandered in the desert of Beer sheba. Bereshit 21:14


+ 156 And the water was depleted from the leather pouch, and she cast the child under one of the bushes. Bereshit 21:15


+ 187 And she went and sat down from afar, at about the distance of two bowshots, for she said, Let me not see the child's death. And she sat from afar, and she raised her voice and wept. Bereshit 21:16


+ 177 And God heard the lad's voice, and an angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, What is troubling you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the lad's voice in the place where he is. Bereshit 21:17


+ 163 Rise, pick up the lad and grasp your hand upon him, for I shall make him into a great nation. Bereshit 21:18


+ 141 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water, and she went and filled the pouch with water and gave the lad to drink. Bereshit 21:19


+ 147 And God was with the lad, and he grew, and he dwelt in the desert, and he became an archer. Bereshit 21:20


+ 148 And he dwelt in the desert of Paran, and his mother took for him a wife from the land of Egypt. Bereshit 21:21


+ 178 Now it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phicol his general said to Abraham, saying, God is with you in all that you do. Bereshit 21:22


+ 185 And now, swear to me here by God, that you will not lie to me or to my son or to my grandson; according to the kindness that I have done with you, you shall do with me, and with the land wherein you have sojourned. Bereshit 21:23


+ 158 And Abraham said, I will swear. Bereshit 21:24


+ 162 And Abraham contended with Abimelech about the well of water that the servants of Abimelech had forcibly seized. Bereshit 21:25


+ 150 And Abimelech said, I do not know who did this thing, neither did you tell me, nor did I hear of it until today. Bereshit 21:26


+ 139 And Abraham took flocks and cattle, and gave them to Abimelech, and they both formed a covenant. Bereshit 21:27


+ 163 And Abraham placed seven ewe lambs by themselves. Bereshit 21:28


+ 161 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What are these seven ewe lambs, which you have placed by themselves? Bereshit 21:29


+ 173 And he said, For these seven ewe lambs you shall take from my hand, in order that it be to me for a witness that I dug this well. Bereshit 21:30


+ 146 Therefore, he named that place Beer sheba, for there they both swore. Bereshit 21:31


+ 195 And they formed a covenant in Beer-sheba, and Abimelech and Phicol his general arose, and they returned to the land of the Philistines. Bereshit 21:32


+ 158 And he planted an eishel in Beer-Sheba, and he called there in the name of the Lord, the God of the world. Bereshit 21:33


+ 155 And Abraham dwelt in the land of the Philistines for many days. Bereshit 21:34


+ 173 And it came to pass after these things, that God tested Abraham, and He said to him, Abraham, and he said, Here I am. Bereshit 22:1


+ 146 And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took the knife, to slaughter his son. Bereshit 22:10


+ 164 And an angel of God called to him from heaven and said, Abraham! Abraham! And he said, Here I am. Bereshit 22:11


+ 159 And he said, Do not stretch forth your hand to the lad, nor do the slightest thing to him, for now I know that you are a God fearing man, and you did not withhold your son, your only one, from Me. Bereshit 22:12


+ 182 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and he saw, and lo! there was a ram, and after that it was caught in a tree by its horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. Bereshit 22:13


+ 164 And Abraham named that place, The Lord will see, as it is said to this day: On the mountain, the Lord will be seen. Bereshit 22:14


+ 153 And an angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time from heaven. Bereshit 22:15


+ 168 And he said, By Myself have I sworn, says the Lord, that because you have done this thing and you did not withhold your son, your only one, Bereshit 22:16


+ 160 That I will surely bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand that is on the seashore, and your descendants will inherit the cities of their enemies. Bereshit 22:17


+ 157 And through your children shall be blessed all the nations of the world, because you hearkened to My voice. Bereshit 22:18


+ 173 And Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beer sheba; and Abraham remained in Beer sheba. Bereshit 22:19


+ 154 Uz, his first born, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel, the father of Aram. Bereshit 22:21


+ 148 And the life of Sarah was one hundred years and twenty years and seven years; these were the years of the life of Sarah. Bereshit 23:1


+ 176 Now Ephron was sitting in the midst of the sons of Heth, and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the hearing of the sons of Heth, of all those who had come into the gate of his city, saying, Bereshit 23:10


+ 175 No, my lord, listen to me. I have given you the field, and the cave that is in it, I have given it to you. Before the eyes of the sons of my people, I have given it to you; bury your dead. Bereshit 23:11


+ 144 And Abraham prostrated himself before the people of the land. Bereshit 23:12


+ 182 And he spoke to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, saying, But, if only you would listen to me. I am giving the money for the field; take it from me, and I will bury my dead there. Bereshit 23:13


+ 145 And Ephron replied to Abraham, saying to him, Bereshit 23:14


+ 174 My lord, listen to me; a piece of land worth four hundred shekels of silver, what is it between me and you? Bury your dead. Bereshit 23:15


+ 187 And Abraham listened to Ephron, and Abraham weighed out to Ephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, accepted by the merchant. Bereshit 23:16


+ 182 And so the field of Ephron which was in Machpelah, facing Mamre, was established as Abraham's possession. This included the field and the cave that was in it, and all the trees that were in the field, which were within its entire border around. Bereshit 23:17


+ 169 It was to Abraham as a possession before the eyes of the sons of Heth, in the presence of all who had come within the gate of his city. Bereshit 23:18


+ 187 And afterwards, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah, facing Mamre, which is Hebron, in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 23:19


+ 155 And Abraham was old, advanced in days, and the Lord had blessed Abraham with everything. Bereshit 24:1


+ 185 And the servant took ten camels of his master's camels, and he went, and all the best of his master was in his hand; and he arose, and he went to Aram naharaim, to the city of Nahor. Bereshit 24:10


+ 153 And he made the camels kneel outside the city beside the well of water, at eventide, at the time the maidens go out to draw water. Bereshit 24:11


+ 179 And he said, O Lord, the God of my master Abraham, please cause to happen to me today, and perform loving kindness with my master, Abraham. Bereshit 24:12


+ 158 Behold, I am standing by the water fountain, and the daughters of the people of the city are coming out to draw water. Bereshit 24:13


+ 179 And it will be, that the maiden to whom I will say, Lower your pitcher and I will drink, and she will say, Drink, and I will also water your camels, her have You designated for Your servant, for Isaac, and through her may I know that You have performed loving kindness with my master. Bereshit 24:14


+ 179 Now he had not yet finished speaking, and behold, Rebecca came out, who had been born to Bethuel the son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, and her pitcher was on her shoulder. Bereshit 24:15


+ 178 Now the maiden was of very comely appearance, a virgin, and no man had been intimate with her, and she went down to the fountain, and she filled her pitcher and went up. Bereshit 24:16


+ 154 And the servant ran toward her, and he said, Please let me sip a little water from your pitcher. Bereshit 24:17


+ 165 And she said, Drink, my lord. And she hastened and lowered her pitcher to her hand, and she gave him to drink. Bereshit 24:18


+ 163 And she finished giving him to drink, and she said, I will also draw for your camels, until they will have finished drinking. Bereshit 24:19


+ 164 And the man was astonished at her, standing silent, waiting to know whether the Lord had caused his way to prosper or not. Bereshit 24:21


+ 146 And he said, Come, you who are blessed of the Lord. Why should you stand outside, when I have cleared the house, and a place for the camels? Bereshit 24:31


+ 158 You will then be absolved from my oath, when you come to my family, and if they do not give her to you, you will be absolved from my oath. Bereshit 24:41


+ 126 Behold Rebecca is before you, take her and go, and let her be a wife for your master's son, as the Lord has spoken. Bereshit 24:51


+ 143 And Rebecca and her maidens arose and rode on the camels, and they followed the man; and the servant took Rebecca and left. Bereshit 24:61


+ 155 And Abraham took another wife and her name was Keturah. Bereshit 25:1


+ 150 The field that Abraham had bought from the sons of Heth there Abraham and his wife Sarah were buried. Bereshit 25:10


+ 179 Now it came to pass after Abraham's death, that God blessed his son Isaac, and Isaac dwelt near Be'er Lachai Ro'i. Bereshit 25:11


+ 172 Now these are the generations of Ishmael the son of Abraham, whom Hagar the Egyptian, the maidservant of Sarah, bore to Abraham. Bereshit 25:12


+ 155 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael by their names, according to their births: the firstborn of Ishmael was Nebaioth, and Kedar and Adbe'el and Mibsam, Bereshit 25:13


+ 134 And Mishma and Dumah and Massa, Bereshit 25:14


+ 133 Hadad and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedmah. Bereshit 25:15


+ 151 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names in their open cities and in their walled cities, twelve princes to their nations. Bereshit 25:16


+ 165 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael: one hundred years and thirty years and seven years; and he expired and died and was gathered to his people. Bereshit 25:17


+ 158 And they dwelt from Havilah to Shur, which borders on Egypt, going towards Asshur; before all his brothers he dwelt. Bereshit 25:18


+ 167 And these are the generations of Isaac the son of Abraham; Abraham begot Isaac. Bereshit 25:19


+ 182 And Isaac prayed to the Lord opposite his wife because she was barren, and the Lord accepted his prayer, and Rebecca his wife conceived. Bereshit 25:21


+ 153 And Jacob said, Sell me as of this day your birthright. Bereshit 25:31


+ 180 And there was a famine in the land, aside from the first famine that had been in the days of Abraham, and Isaac went to Abimelech the king of the Philistines, to Gerar. Bereshit 26:1


+ 170 And Abimelech said, What have you done to us? The most prominent of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us. Bereshit 26:10


+ 226 And Abimelech commanded all the people, saying, Whoever touches this man or his wife shall be put to death. Bereshit 26:11


+ 161 And Isaac sowed in that land, and he found in that year a hundred fold, and the Lord blessed him. Bereshit 26:12


+ 145 And the man became great, and he grew constantly greater until he had grown very great. Bereshit 26:13


+ 160 And he had possessions of sheep and possessions of cattle and much production, and the Philistines envied him. Bereshit 26:14


+ 182 And all the wells that his father's servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father the Philistines stopped them up and filled them with earth. Bereshit 26:15


+ 177 And Abimelech said to Isaac, Go away from us, for you have become much stronger than we. Bereshit 26:16


+ 156 And Isaac went away from there, and he encamped in the valley of Gerar and dwelt there. Bereshit 26:17


+ 187 And Isaac again dug the wells of water which they had dug in the days of his father, Abraham, and the Philistines had stopped them up after Abraham's death; and he gave them names like the names that his father had given them. Bereshit 26:18


+ 163 And Isaac's servants dug in the valley, and they found there a well of living waters. Bereshit 26:19


+ 161 And they dug another well, and they quarreled about it also; so he named it Sitnah. Bereshit 26:21


+ 181 And they arose early in the morning, and they swore one to the other, and Isaac escorted them, and they went away from him in peace. Bereshit 26:31


+ 180 It came to pass when Isaac was old, and his eyes were too dim to see, that he called Esau his elder son, and he said to him, My son, and he said to him, Here I am. Bereshit 27:1


+ 141 And you shall bring them to your father that he may eat, in order that he bless you before his death. Bereshit 27:10


+ 158 And Jacob said to Rebecca his mother, Behold, my brother Esau is a hairy man, whereas I am a smooth man. Bereshit 27:11


+ 169 Perhaps my father will touch me, and I will appear to him as a deceiver, and I will bring upon myself a curse and not a blessing. Bereshit 27:12


+ 171 And his mother said to him, On me is your curse, my son. Only hearken to my voice and go, take them for me. Bereshit 27:13


+ 150 So he went, and he took, and he brought them to his mother, and his mother made tasty foods, as his father liked. Bereshit 27:14


+ 172 And Rebecca took the costly garments of Esau, her elder son, which were with her in the house, and she dressed Jacob, her younger son. Bereshit 27:15


+ 151 And the hides of the kids she put on his hands and on the smoothness of his neck. Bereshit 27:16


+ 152 And she gave the tasty foods and the bread that she had made, into the hand of Jacob her son. Bereshit 27:17


+ 140 And he came to his father and said, My father! And he said, Here I am. Who are you, my son? Bereshit 27:18


+ 183 And Jacob said to his father, I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you have spoken to me. Please rise, sit down and eat of my game, so that your soul will bless me. Bereshit 27:19


+ 197 And Isaac said to Jacob, Please come closer, so that I may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not. Bereshit 27:21


+ 171 And he too had made tasty foods, and he brought them to his father, and he said to his father, Let my father arise and eat of the game of his son, so that your soul will bless me. Bereshit 27:31


+ 194 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing that his father had blessed him, and Esau said to himself, Let the days of mourning for my father draw near, I will then kill my brother Jacob. Bereshit 27:41


+ 185 And Isaac called Jacob and blessed him, and he commanded him and said to him, You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Bereshit 28:1


+ 170 And Jacob left Beer sheba, and he went to Haran. Bereshit 28:10


+ 171 And he arrived at the place and lodged there because the sun had set, and he took some of the stones of the place and placed them at his head, and he lay down in that place. Bereshit 28:11


+ 167 And he dreamed, and behold! a ladder set up on the ground and its top reached to heaven; and behold, angels of God were ascending and descending upon it. Bereshit 28:12


+ 164 And behold, the Lord was standing over him, and He said, I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac; the land upon which you are lying to you I will give it and to your seed. Bereshit 28:13


+ 171 And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall gain strength westward and eastward and northward and southward; and through you shall be blessed all the families of the earth and through your seed. Bereshit 28:14


+ 174 And behold, I am with you, and I will guard you wherever you go, and I will restore you to this land, for I will not forsake you until I have done what I have spoken concerning you. Bereshit 28:15


+ 173 And Jacob awakened from his sleep, and he said, Indeed, the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it. Bereshit 28:16


+ 198 And he was frightened, and he said, How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. Bereshit 28:17


+ 187 And Jacob arose early in the morning, and he took the stone that he had placed at his head, and he set it up as a monument, and he poured oil on top of it. Bereshit 28:18


+ 154 And he named the place Beth El, but Luz was orignally the name of the city. Bereshit 28:19


+ 143 And if I return in peace to my father's house, and the Lord will be my God; Bereshit 28:21


+ 169 Now Jacob lifted his feet and went to the land of the people of the East. Bereshit 29:01


+ 198 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel, the daughter of Laban, his mother's brother and the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother, that Jacob drew near and rolled the rock off the mouth of the well, and he watered the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother. Bereshit 29:10


+ 180 And Jacob kissed Rachel, and he raised his voice and wept. Bereshit 29:11


+ 166 And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's kinsman and that he was Rebecca's son, and she ran and told her father. Bereshit 29:12


+ 176 Now it came to pass when Laban heard the report of Jacob, his sister's son, that he ran towards him, and he embraced him, and he kissed him, and he brought him into his house. He told Laban all these happenings. Bereshit 29:13


+ 160 And Laban said to him, Indeed, you are my bone and my flesh. And so he stayed with him a full month. Bereshit 29:14


+ 191 And Laban said to Jacob, Because you are my kinsman, should you work for me gratis? Tell me what your wages shall be. Bereshit 29:15


+ 164 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Bereshit 29:16


+ 147 Leah's eyes were tender, but Rachel had beautiful features and a beautiful complexion. Bereshit 29:17


+ 189 And Jacob loved Rachel, and he said, I will work for you seven years for Rachel, your younger daughter. Bereshit 29:19


+ 157 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to you than I should give her to another man. Stay with me. Bereshit 29:19


+ 167 And Jacob said to Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are completed, that I may come to her. Bereshit 29:21


+ 153 And the Lord saw that Leah was hated, so He opened her womb; but Rachel was barren. Bereshit 29:31


+ 176 And Rachel saw that she had not borne any children to Jacob, and Rachel envied her sister, and she said to Jacob, Give me children, and if not, I am dead. Bereshit 30:1


+ 162 And Zilpah, Leah's maidservant, bore Jacob a son. Bereshit 30:10


+ 152 And Leah said, Luck has come; so she named him Gad. Bereshit 30:11


+ 167 And Zilpah, Leah's maidservant, bore Jacob a second son. Bereshit 30:12


+ 163 And Leah said, Because of my good fortune, for women have declared me fortunate; so she named him Asher. Bereshit 30:13


+ 179 Reuben went in the days of the wheat harvest, and he found dudaim in the field and brought them to Leah, his mother, and Rachel said to Leah, Now give me some of your son's dudaim. Bereshit 30:14


+ 189 And she said to her, Is it a small matter that you have taken my husband, that you wish also to take my son's dudaim? So Rachel said, Therefore, he shall sleep with you tonight as payment for your son's dudaim. Bereshit 30:15


+ 188 When Jacob came from the field in the evening, and Leah came forth toward him, and she said, You shall come to me, because I have hired you with my son's dudaim, and he slept with her on that night. Bereshit 30:16


+ 161 And God hearkened to Leah, and she conceived and bore Jacob a fifth son. Bereshit 30:17


+ 155 And Leah said, God has given me my reward for I have given my maidservant to my husband; so she named him Issachar. Bereshit 30:18


+ 167 And Leah conceived again, and she bore Jacob a sixth son. Bereshit 30:19


+ 161 And afterwards, she bore a daughter, and she named her Dinah. Bereshit 30:21


+ 174 And he said, What shall I give you? And Jacob said, You shall give me nothing; if you do this thing for me, I will return, I will pasture your flocks, and I will watch them. Bereshit 30:31


+ 183 And it came to pass, that whenever the animals that were bearing their first would come into heat, Jacob would place the rods in the troughs, before the eyes of the animals, in order to bring them into heat by means of the rods. Bereshit 30:41


+ 180 And he heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob has taken all that belonged to our father, and from what belonged to our father, he has amassed this entire fortune. Bereshit 31:1


+ 174 And Jacob saw Laban's countenance, that he was not disposed toward him as he had been yesterday and the day before. Bereshit 31:2


+ 172 And the Lord said to Jacob, Return to the land of your forefathers and to your birthplace, and I will be with you. Bereshit 31:3


+ 160 So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field, to his flocks. Bereshit 31:4


+ 173 And the Lord said to Jacob, Return to the land of your forefathers and to your birthplace, and I will be with you. Bereshit 31:3


+ 170 So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field, to his flocks. Bereshit 31:4


+ 168 And he said to them, I see your father's countenance, that he is not disposed toward me as he was yesterday and the day before, but the God of my father was with me. Bereshit 31:5


+ 173 And you know that with all my might I served your father. Bereshit 31:6


+ 162 But your father mocked me and changed my wages ten times, but God did not permit him to harm me. Bereshit 31:7


+ 136 If he would say thus, Speckled ones shall be your wages, all the animals would bear speckled ones, and if he would say thus, Ringed ones shall be your wages, all the animals would bear ringed ones. Bereshit 31:8


+ 144 Thus, God separated your father's livestock and gave it to me. Bereshit 31:9


+ 174 And it came to pass at the time the animals came into heat, that I lifted my eyes and saw in a dream, and behold, the he goats that mounted the animals were ringed, speckled, and striped. Bereshit 31:10


+ 166 And an angel of God said to me in a dream, Jacob! And I said, Here I am. Bereshit 31:11


+ 186 And he said, Now lift your eyes and see that all the he goats mounting the animals are ringed, speckled, and striped, for I have seen all that Laban is doing to you. Bereshit 31:12


+ 188 I am the God of Beth el, where you anointed a monument, where you pronounced to Me a vow. Now, arise, go forth from this land and return to the land of your birth. Bereshit 31:13


+ 151 And Rachel and Leah replied and said to him, Do we still have a share or an inheritance in our father's house? Bereshit 31:14


+ 155 Are we not considered by him as strangers, for he sold us and also consumed our money? Bereshit 31:15


+ 162 But all the wealth that God separated from our father is ours and our children's. So now, all that God said to you, do. Bereshit 31:16


+ 170 So Jacob rose, and he lifted up his sons and his wives upon the camels. Bereshit 31:17


+ 187 And he led all his livestock and all his possessions that he had acquired, the purchase of his acquisition, which he had acquired in Padan aram, to come to Isaac his father, to the land of Canaan. Bereshit 31:18


+ 168 Now Laban had gone to shear his sheep, and meanwhile Rachel stole her father's teraphim. Bereshit 31:19


+ 183 And Jacob concealed from Laban the Aramean by not telling him that he was fleeing. Bereshit 31:20


+ 167 So he and all that were his fled, and he arose and crossed the river, and he directed his face toward Mount Gilead. Bereshit 31:21


+ 161 On the third day, Laban was informed that Jacob had fled. Bereshit 31:22


+ 149 So he took his kinsmen with him, and he pursued him seven days journey, and he overtook him at Mount Gilead. Bereshit 31:23


+ 189 And God came to Laban the Aramean in a dream of the night, and He said to him, Beware lest you speak with Jacob either good or evil. Bereshit 31:24


+ 165 And Laban overtook Jacob, and Jacob pitched his tent on the mountain, and Laban pitched with his kinsmen on Mount Gilead. Bereshit 31:25


+ 189 And Laban said to Jacob, What have you done, that you concealed from me, and led away my daughters like prisoners of war? Bereshit 31:26


+ 189 Why have you fled secretly, and concealed from me, and not told me? I would have sent you away with joy and with songs, and with drum and with harp. Bereshit 31:27


+ 154 And you did not allow me to kiss my sons and daughters. Now, you have acted foolishly. Bereshit 31:28


+ 185 I have the power to inflict harm upon you, but the God of your father spoke to me last night, saying, Beware of speaking with Jacob either good or bad. Bereshit 31:29


+ 165 But now, you have gone away, for you longed for your father's house, but why have you stolen my gods? Bereshit 31:30


+ 167 And Jacob replied, and he said to Laban, Because I was afraid, because I said, Lest you steal your daughters from me. Bereshit 31:31


+ 195 The one with whom you find your gods shall not live. In the presence of our brothers, recognize for yourself what is with me, and take it for yourself. For Jacob did not know that Rachel had stolen them. Bereshit 31:32


+ 173 So Laban entered Jacob's tent and Leah's tent and the tents of the two handmaids, but he did not find them; and he had come out of Leah's tent and entered Rachel's tent. Bereshit 31:33


+ 174 But Rachel had taken the teraphim and placed them into the camel saddle and sat upon them; so Laban felt about the entire tent but did not find them. Bereshit 31:34


+ 157 And she said to her father, Let my lord not be annoyed, for I cannot rise before you, for the way of women is upon me. So he searched, but did not find the teraphim. Bereshit 31:35


+ 165 And Jacob was annoyed, and he quarreled with Laban, and he said to Laban, What is my transgression? What is my sin, that you have pursued me? Bereshit 31:36


+ 266 For you have felt about all my things. What have you found of all the utensils of your house? Put it here, in the presence of my kinsmen and your kinsmen, and let them decide between the two of us. Bereshit 31:37


+ 140 Already twenty years have I been with you, and your ewes and she goats have not aborted, neither have I eaten the rams of your flocks. Bereshit 31:38


+ 183 I have not brought home to you anything torn by other animals; I would suffer its loss; from my hand you would demand it, what was stolen by day and what was stolen at night. Bereshit 31:39


+ 156 I was in the field by day when the heat consumed me, and the frost at night, and my sleep wandered from my eyes. Bereshit 31:40


+ 160 This is twenty years that I have spent in your house. I served you fourteen years for your two daughters and six years for your animals, and you changed my wages ten times ten times. Bereshit 31:41


+ 193 Had not the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, been for me, you would now have sent me away empty handed. God has seen my affliction and the toil of my hands, and He reproved you last night. Bereshit 31:42


+ 182 And Laban answered and said to Jacob, "The daughters are my daughters, and the sons are my sons, and the animals are my animals, and all that you see is mine. Now, what would I do to these daughters of mine today, or to their children, whom they have borne? Bereshit 31:43


+ 130 So now, come, let us form a covenant, you and I, and may He be a witness between me and you." Bereshit 31:44


+ 138 So Jacob took a stone and set it up as a monument. Bereshit 31:45


+ 151 And Jacob said to his kinsmen, Gather stones, and they took stones and made a pile, and they ate there by the pile. Bereshit 31:46


+ 145 And Laban called it Yegar Sahadutha, but Jacob called it Gal ed. Bereshit 31:47


+ 147 And Laban said, This pile is a witness between me and you today. Therefore, he called it Gal ed. Bereshit 31:48


+ 121 And Mizpah, because he said, May the Lord look between me and you when we are hidden from each other. Bereshit 31:49


+ 144 If you afflict my daughters, or if you take wives in addition to my daughters when no one is with us, behold! God is a witness between me and you. Bereshit 31:50


+ 159 And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this pile and behold this monument, which I have cast between me and you. Bereshit 31:51


+ 129 This pile is a witness, and this monument is a witness, that I will not pass this pile to go to you and that you shall not pass this pile and this monument to come to me to do harm. Bereshit 31:52


+ 170 May the God of Abraham and the god of Nahor judge between us, the god of their father. And Jacob swore by the Fear of his father Isaac. Bereshit 31:53


+ 168 And Jacob slaughtered a slaughtering on the mountain, and he invited his friends to eat a meal, and they ate bread and lodged on the mountain. Bereshit 31:54


+ 144 And Laban arose early in the morning and kissed his sons and daughters and blessed them, and Laban went and returned to his place. Bereshit 32:1


+ 181 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, the Lord, Who said to me, Return to your land and to your birthplace, and I will do good to you. Bereshit 32:10


+ 162 I have become small from all the kindnesses and from all the truth that You have rendered Your servant, for with my staff I crossed this Jordan, and now I have become two camps. Bereshit 32:11


+ 126 Now deliver me from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau, for I am afraid of him, lest he come and strike me, and strike a mother with children. Bereshit 32:12


+ 156 And You said, I will surely do good with you, and I will make your seed as numerous as the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted because of multitude. Bereshit 32:13


+ 146 So he lodged there on that night, and he took from what came into his hand a gift for his brother Esau: Bereshit 32:14


+ 125 Two hundred she goats and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, Bereshit 32:15


+ 167 Thirty nursing camels with their young, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty she donkeys and ten he donkeys. Bereshit 32:16


+ 143 And he gave into the hands of his servants each herd individually, and he said to his servants, Pass on ahead of me and make a space between one herd and another herd. Bereshit 32:17


+ 150 And he commanded the first one, saying, When my brother Esau meets you, and asks you, saying, To whom do you belong, and where are you going, and for whom are these before you? Bereshit 32:18


+ 182 You shall say, I belong to your servant Jacob; it is a gift sent to my master, to Esau, and behold, he himself is behind us. Bereshit 32:19


+ 168 And you shall say, Also, behold, your servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease his anger with the gift that is going before me, and afterwards I will see his face, perhaps he will favor me. Bereshit 32:21


+ 169 And Jacob named the place Peniel, for he said, I saw an angel face to face, and my soul was saved. Bereshit 32:31


+ 176 Jacob lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, Esau was coming, and with him were four hundred men; so he divided the children with Leah and with Rachel and with the two maidservants. Bereshit 33:1


+ 180 Thereupon Jacob said, Please no! If indeed I have found favor in your eyes, then you shall take my gift from my hand, because I have seen your face, which is like seeing the face of an angel, and you have accepted me. Bereshit 33:10


+ 143 Now take my gift, which has been brought to you, for God has favored me with it, and because I have everything. He prevailed upon him, and he took it. Bereshit 33:11


+ 134 Thereupon, he said, Travel and we will go, and I will go alongside you. Bereshit 33:12


+ 142 And he said to him, My master knows that the children are tender, and the flocks and the cattle, which are raising their young, depend upon me, and if they overdrive them one day, all the flocks will die. Bereshit 33:13


+ 152 Now, let my master go ahead before his servant, and I will move at my own slow pace, according to the pace of the work that is before me and according to the pace of the children, until I come to my master, to Seir. Bereshit 33:14


+ 141 Thereupon Esau said, Let me leave with you some of the people who are with me. But he said, Why do that? May I find favor in my master's eyes. Bereshit 33:15


+ 135 So Esau returned on that day on his way to Seir. Bereshit 33:16


+ 161 And Jacob traveled to Succoth and built himself a house, and for his cattle he made booths; therefore he named the place Succoth. Bereshit 33:17


+ 157 And Jacob came safely to the city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, when he came from Padan aram, and he encamped before the city. Bereshit 33:18


+ 132 And he bought the part of the field where he had pitched his tent from the sons of Hamor, the father of Shechem, for a hundred kesitas. Bereshit 33:19


+ 148 Dinah, the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to look about among the daughters of the land. Bereshit 34:1


+ 130 And you shall dwell with us, and the land shall be before you; remain, do business there and settle there." Bereshit 34:10


+ 146 And Shechem said to her father and to her brothers, "May I find favor in your eyes. Whatever you tell me I will give. Bereshit 34:11


+ 126 Impose upon me a large marriage settlement and gifts, and I will give as much as you ask of me, but give me the girl for a wife." Bereshit 34:12


+ 240 Thereupon, Jacob's sons answered Shechem and his father Hamor with cunning, and they spoke, because after all he had defiled their sister Dinah. Bereshit 34:13


+ 148 And they said to them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to a man who has a foreskin, for that is a disgrace to us. Bereshit 34:14


+ 160 But with this, however, we will consent to you, if you will be like us, that every male will be circumcised. Bereshit 34:15


+ 134 Then we will give you our daughters, and we will take your daughters for ourselves, and we will dwell with you and become one people. Bereshit 34:16


+ 121 But if you do not listen to us to be circumcised, we will take our daughter and go. Bereshit 34:17


+ 140 Their words pleased Hamor and Shechem, the son of Hamor. Bereshit 34:18


+ 159 And the young man did not delay to do the thing because he desired Jacob's daughter, and he was the most honored in all his father's household. Bereshit 34:19


+ 121 These men are peaceful with us, and they will dwell in the land and do business there, and the land behold it is spacious enough for them. We will take their daughters for ourselves as wives, and we will give them our daughters. Bereshit 34:21


+ 125 And they said, Shall he make our sister like a harlot? Bereshit 34:31


+ 133 And God said to Jacob, Arise and go up to Beth el and abide there, and make there an altar to the God Who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau. Bereshit 35:1


+ 164 God said to him, Your name is Jacob. Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name. And He named him Israel. Bereshit 35:10


+ 154 And God said to him, I am the Almighty God; be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a multitude of nations shall come into existence from you, and kings shall come forth from your loins. Bereshit 35:11


+ 165 And the land that I gave to Abraham and to Isaac, I will give to you and to your seed after you will I give the land." Bereshit 35:12


+ 135 And God went up from him in the place where He had spoken with him. Bereshit 35:13


+ 160 Now Jacob had erected a monument in the place where He had spoken with him, a stone monument, and he poured a libation upon it, and then he poured oil upon it. Bereshit 35:14


+ 141 Jacob named the place where God had spoken with him Beth el. Bereshit 35:15


+ 125 And they journeyed from Beth el, and there was still some distance to come to Ephrath, and Rachel gave birth, and her labor was difficult. Bereshit 35:16


+ 147 It came to pass when she had such difficulty giving birth, that the midwife said to her, "Do not be afraid, for this one, too, is a son for you." Bereshit 35:17


+ 130 And it came to pass, when her soul departed for she died that she named him Ben oni, but his father called him Benjamin. Bereshit 35:18


+ 127 So Rachel died, and she was buried on the road to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem. Bereshit 35:19


+ 130 Israel journeyed, and he pitched his tent at some distance past the Tower of Eder. Bereshit 35:21


+ 141 And these are the generations of Esau, that is, Edom. Bereshit 36:1


+ 123 These are the names of Esau's sons: Eliphaz, son of Adah, the wife of Esau, Reuel, son of Basemath, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:10


+ 125 The sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gaatam, and Kenaz. Bereshit 36:11


+ 122 And Timna was a concubine to Eliphaz, son of Esau, and she bore to Eliphaz, Amalek. These are the sons of Adah, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:12


+ 146 And these are the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These are the sons of Basemath, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:13


+ 144 And these are the sons of Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, daughter of Zibeon, the wife of Esau; she bore to Esau: Jeush, Jaalam, and Korah. Bereshit 36:14


+ 129 These became the chieftains of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz, Esau's firstborn: Chief Teman, Chief Omar, Chief Zepho, Chief Kenaz, Bereshit 36:15


+ 133 Chief Korah, Chief Gaatam, Chief Amalek. These are the chieftains of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Adah. Bereshit 36:16


+ 137 And these are the sons of Reuel the son of Esau: Chief Nahath, Chief Zerah, Chief Shammah, and Chief Mizzah. These are the chieftains of Reuel in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Basemath, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:17


+ 126 And these are the sons of Oholibamah, the wife of Esau: Chief Jeush, Chief Jaalam, Chief Korah. These are the chieftains of Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:18


+ 107 These are the sons of Esau and these are their chieftains, he is Edom. Bereshit 36:19


+ 118 Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These are the chieftains of the Horites, the sons of Seir in the land of Edom. Bereshit 36:21


+ 134 And these are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom before any king reigned over the children of Israel: Bereshit 36:31


+ 104 Chief Oholibamah, Chief Elah, Chief Pinon, Bereshit 36:41


+ 141 Jacob dwelt in the land of his father's sojournings, in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 37:1


+ 155 And he told it to his father and to his brothers, and his father rebuked him and said to him, "What is this dream that you have dreamed? Will we come I, your mother, and your brothers to prostrate ourselves to you to the ground?" Bereshit 37:10


+ 106 So his brothers envied him, but his father awaited the matter. Bereshit 37:11


+ 130 And his brothers went to pasture their father's flocks in Shechem. Bereshit 37:12


+ 170 And Israel said to Joseph, Are your brothers not pasturing in Shechem? Come, and I will send you to them. And he said to him, Here I am. Bereshit 37:13


+ 149 So he said to him, Go now and see to your brothers' welfare and the welfare of the flocks, and bring me back word. So he sent him from the valley of Hebron, and he came to Shechem. Bereshit 37:14


+ 135 Then a man found him, and behold, he was straying in the field, and the man asked him, saying, What are you looking for? Bereshit 37:15


+ 135 And he said, I am looking for my brothers. Tell me now, where are they pasturing? Bereshit 37:16


+ 147 And the man said, They have traveled away from here, for I overheard them say, Let us go to Dothan. So Joseph went after his brothers, and he found them in Dothan. Bereshit 37:17


+ 151 And they saw him from afar, and when he had not yet drawn near to them, they plotted against him to put him to death. Bereshit 37:18


+ 123 So they said one to the other, Behold, that dreamer is coming. Bereshit 37:19


+ 138 But Reuben heard, and he saved him from their hands, and he said, Let us not deal him a deadly blow. Bereshit 37:21


+ 115 And they took Joseph's coat, and they slaughtered a kid, and they dipped the coat in the blood. Bereshit 37:31


+ 148 Now it came about at that time that Judah was demoted by his brothers, and he turned away until he came to an Adullamite man, named Hirah. Bereshit 38:1


+ 130 Now what he did was evil in the eyes of the Lord, and He put him to death also. Bereshit 38:10


+ 163 Then Judah said to his daughter in law Tamar, "Remain as a widow in your father's house until my son Shelah grows up," for he said, "Lest he too die, like his brothers." So Tamar went, and she remained in her father's house. Bereshit 38:11


+ 158 Many days passed, and Shua's daughter, Judah's wife, died; and Judah was consoled, and he went up to watch over his sheepshearers he and Hirah, his Adullamite friend to Timnah. Bereshit 38:12


+ 135 And it was told to Tamar, saying, Behold, your father in law is going up to Timnah to shear his sheep. Bereshit 38:13


+ 180 So she took off her widow's garb, covered her head with a veil and covered her face, and she sat down at the crossroads that were on the way to Timnah, for she saw that Shelah had grown up, but as for her she was not given to him for a wife. Bereshit 38:14


+ 236 When Judah saw her, he thought she was a harlot, because she covered her face. Bereshit 38:15


+ 149 So he turned aside toward her to the road, and he said, Get ready now, I will come to you, for he did not know that she was his daughter in law, and she said, What will you give me that you should come to me? Bereshit 38:16


+ 152 And he said, I will send a kid from the herd, and she said, Only if you give me a pledge until you send it. Bereshit 38:17


+ 153 So he said, What is the pledge that I should give you? And she said, Your signet, your cloak, and the staff that is in your hand. So he gave them to her, and he came to her, and she conceived his likeness. Bereshit 38:18


+ 131 Then she arose and went away, and she took off her veil, and she donned her widow's garb. Bereshit 38:19


+ 166 So he asked the people of the place, saying, Where is the harlot who was at the crossroads on the way? and they said, No harlot was here. Bereshit 38:21


+ 137 Now Joseph had been brought down to Egypt, and Potiphar, Pharaoh's chamberlain, chief of the slaughterers, an Egyptian man, purchased him from the Ishmaelites who had brought him down there. Bereshit 39:1


+ 139 Now it came about when she spoke to Joseph day in and day out, that he did not obey her, to lie beside her and to be with her. Bereshit 39:10


+ 149 And it came about on a certain day, that he came to the house to do his work, and none of the people of the house were there in the house. Bereshit 39:11


+ 135 So she grabbed him by his garment, saying, Lie with me! But he left his garment in her hand and fled and went outside. Bereshit 39:12


+ 114 Now it happened, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand and had fled outside, Bereshit 39:13


+ 121 That she called to the people of her house, and she spoke to them, saying, Look! He brought us a Hebrew man to mock us. He came to me to lie with me, but I called loudly. Bereshit 39:14


+ 140 And it happened that when he heard that I raised my voice and called out, he left his garment beside me, and he fled and went outside. Bereshit 39:15


+ 125 So she left his garment beside her, until his master came home. Bereshit 39:16


+ 130 And she told him the same thing, saying, "The Hebrew slave that you brought to us came to me to mock me. Bereshit 39:17


+ 129 And it happened when I raised my voice and called out, that he left his garment beside me and fled outside." Bereshit 39:18


+ 144 Now it came about when his master heard his wife's report that she spoke to him, saying, "Your slave did such things to me," that his wrath burned. Bereshit 39:19


+ 140 The Lord was with Joseph, and He extended charisma to him, and He gave him favor in the eyes of the warden of the prison. Bereshit 39:21


+ 134 Now it came about after these events that the cupbearer of the king of Egypt and the baker sinned against their master, against the king of Egypt. Bereshit 40:1


+ 156 And on the vine are three tendrils, and it seemed to be blossoming, and its buds came out; then its clusters ripened into grapes. Bereshit 40:10


+ 155 And Pharaoh's cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes and squeezed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I placed the cup on Pharaoh's palm. Bereshit 40:11


+ 127 And Joseph said to him, This is its meaning: the three tendrils are three days. Bereshit 40:12


+ 240 In another three days, Pharaoh will number you with the other officers, and he will restore you to your position, and you will place Pharaoh's cup into his hand, according to your previous custom, when you were his cupbearer. Bereshit 40:13


+ 139 But remember me when things go well with you, and please do me a favor and mention me to Pharaoh, and you will get me out of this house. Bereshit 40:14


+ 147 For I was stolen from the land of the Hebrews, and here too, I have done nothing, for which they have put me into the dungeon. Bereshit 40:15


+ 184 Now the chief baker saw that he had interpreted well. So he said to Joseph, Me too! In my dream, behold, there were three wicker baskets on my head. Bereshit 40:16


+ 146 And in the topmost basket were all kinds of Pharaoh's food, the work of a baker, and the birds were eating them from the basket atop my head. Bereshit 40:17


+ 123 And Joseph replied and said, This is its meaning: the three baskets represent three days. Bereshit 40:18


+ 155 In another three days, Pharaoh will remove your head from you and hang you on a gallows, and the birds will eat your flesh off you. Bereshit 40:19


+ 151 And he restored the chief cupbearer to his position as cupbearer, and he placed the cup on Pharaoh's palm. Bereshit 40:21


+ 130 It came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh was dreaming, and behold, he was standing by the Nile. Bereshit 41:1


+ 146 And behold, from the Nile were coming up seven cows, of handsome appearance and robust flesh, and they pastured in the marshland. Bereshit 41:2


+ 151 And behold, seven other cows were coming up after them from the Nile, of ugly appearance and lean of flesh, and they stood beside the cows which were on the Nile bank. Bereshit 41:3


+ 136 And the cows of ugly appearance and lean of flesh devoured the seven cows that were of handsome appearance and healthy; then Pharaoh awoke. Bereshit 41:4


+ 141 And he fell asleep and dreamed again, and behold, seven ears of grain were growing on one stalk, healthy and good. Bereshit 41:5


+ 143 And behold, seven ears of grain, thin and beaten by the east wind, were growing up after them. Bereshit 41:6


+ 143 And the thin ears of grain swallowed up the seven healthy and full ears of grain; then Pharaoh awoke, and behold, a dream. Bereshit 41:7


+ 164 Now it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; so he sent and called all the necromancers of Egypt and all its sages, and Pharaoh related to them his dream, but no one interpreted them for Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:8


+ 126 Now the chief cupbearer spoke with Pharaoh, saying, I call to mind my faults today. Bereshit 41:9


+ 120 Pharaoh was angry with his servants, and he put me in prison, in the house of the chief slaughterer, me and the chief baker. Bereshit 41:10


+ 126 And we dreamed a dream on the same night, I and he; each one according to the interpretation of his dream, we dreamed. Bereshit 41:11


+ 113 And there with us was a Hebrew lad, a slave of the chief slaughterer, and we told him, and he interpreted our dreams for us; for each of us, he interpreted according to his dream. Bereshit 41:12


+ 124 And it came to pass that just as he had interpreted, so it was; me he restored to my position, and him he hanged. Bereshit 41:13


+ 128 So Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they rushed him from the dungeon, and he shaved and changed his clothes, and he then came to Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:14


+ 177 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter for it, but I have heard it said of you that you understand a dream, to interpret it. Bereshit 41:15


+ 124 And Joseph replied to Pharaoh, saying, Not I; God will give an answer that will bring peace to Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:16


+ 129 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, In my dream, behold, I was standing on the bank of the Nile. Bereshit 41:17


+ 144 And behold, seven cows of robust flesh and handsome form were ascending from the Nile, and they pastured in the marshland. Bereshit 41:18


+ 148 And behold, seven other cows were ascending after them, emaciated and of very ugly form and with meager flesh; I have not seen such ugly ones throughout the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:19


+ 141 And the meager and ugly cows devoured the first seven healthy cows. Bereshit 41:20


+ 130 And they went inside them, but it was not known that they had gone inside of them, for their appearance was as ugly as in the beginning; then I awoke. Bereshit 41:21


+ 139 Then I saw in my dream, and behold, seven ears of grain were growing on one stalk, full and good. Bereshit 41:22


+ 127 And behold, seven ears of grain, hardened, thin, and beaten by the east wind, were growing up after them. Bereshit 41:23


+ 163 And the thin ears of grain swallowed up the seven good ears of grain; I told the necromancers, but no one tells me its meaning." Bereshit 41:24


+ 140 And Joseph said to Pharaoh, "Pharaoh's dream is one; what God is doing He has told Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:25


+ 127 The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good ears of grain are seven years; it is one dream. Bereshit 41:26


+ 146 And the seven meager and ugly cows coming up after them are seven years, and the seven empty ears of grain, beaten by the east wind, will be seven years of famine. Bereshit 41:27


+ 125 It is this matter that I have spoken to Pharaoh; what God is about to do He has shown Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:28


+ 113 Behold, seven years are coming, great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:29


+ 137 And seven years of famine will arise after them, and all the plenty will be forgotten in the land of Egypt, and the famine will destroy the land. Bereshit 41:30


+ 134 And the plenty will not be known because of that famine to follow, for it will be very severe. Bereshit 41:31


+ 144 And concerning the repetition of the dream to Pharaoh twice that is because the matter is ready to emanate from God, and God is hastening to execute it. Bereshit 41:32


+ 124 So now, let Pharaoh seek out an understanding and wise man and appoint him over the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:33


+ 120 Let Pharaoh do this and appoint officials over the land and prepare the land of Egypt during the seven years of plenty. Bereshit 41:34


+ 131 And let them collect all the food of these coming seven good years, and let them gather the grain under Pharaoh's hand, food in the cities, and keep it. Bereshit 41:35


+ 134 Thus the food will remain as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which will be in the land of Egypt, so that the land will not be destroyed by the famine." Bereshit 41:36


+ 148 The matter pleased Pharaoh and all his servants. Bereshit 41:37


+ 129 So Pharaoh said to his servants, Will we find anyone like this, a man in whom there is the spirit of God? Bereshit 41:38


+ 145 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, Since God has let you know all this, there is no one as understanding and wise as you. Bereshit 41:39


+ 247 You shall be appointed over my household, and through your command all my people shall be nourished; only with the throne will I be greater than you. Bereshit 41:40


+ 140 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, Look, I have appointed you over the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:41


+ 157 And Pharaoh removed his ring from his hand and placed it on Joseph's hand, and he attired him with raiment of fine linen, and he placed the golden chain around his neck. Bereshit 41:42


+ 135 And he had him ride in his chariot of second rank, and they called out before him, This is the king's patron, appointing him over the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:43


+ 141 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and besides you, no one may lift his hand or his foot in the entire land of Egypt." Bereshit 41:44


+ 137 And Pharaoh named Joseph Zaphenath Pa'neach, and he gave him Asenath the daughter of Poti phera, the governor of On, for a wife, and Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:45


+ 145 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and Joseph went out from before Pharaoh and passed through the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:46


+ 142 And in the seven years of plenty, the inhabitants of the land gathered food by handfuls. Bereshit 41:47


+ 145 And he collected all the food of the seven years that was in the land of Egypt, and he placed food in the cities, the food of the field surrounding the city, he put within it. Bereshit 41:48


+ 139 And Joseph gathered grain like the sand of the sea, in great abundance, until one stopped counting, because there was no number. Bereshit 41:49


+ 138 And to Joseph were born two sons before the year of the famine set in, whom Asenath the daughter of Poti phera, the governor of On, bore to him. Bereshit 41:50


+ 143 And Joseph named the firstborn Manasseh, for God has caused me to forget all my toil and all my father's house. Bereshit 41:51


+ 135 And the second one he named Ephraim, for "God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction." Bereshit 41:52


+ 128 And the seven years of plenty that were in the land of Egypt were finished. Bereshit 41:53


+ 144 And the seven years of famine began, as Joseph had said, and there was famine in all the lands, but throughout the land of Egypt there was bread. Bereshit 41:54


+ 145 When the entire land of Egypt hungered, the people cried out to Pharaoh for bread, but Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, "Go to Joseph; what he tells you, do." Bereshit 41:55


+ 162 Now the famine spread over all the face of the land, and Joseph opened all the storehouses in which there was grain, and he sold it to the Egyptians, and the famine intensified in the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:56


+ 131 And all the inhabitants of the land came to Egypt to Joseph to purchase, for the famine had intensified in the entire land. Bereshit 41:57


+ 151 Jacob saw that there was grain being sold in Egypt; so Jacob said to his sons, "Why do you appear satiated?" Bereshit 42:1


+ 139 And they said to him, No, my master, your servants have come to buy food. Bereshit 42:10


+ 127 We are all sons of one man. We are honest. Your servants were never spies. Bereshit 42:11


+ 123 But he said to them, No! But you have come to see the nakedness of the land. Bereshit 42:12


+ 143 And they said, "We, your servants, are twelve brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan, and behold, the youngest is with our father today, and one is gone." Bereshit 42:13


+ 131 And Joseph said to them, This is just what I have spoken to you, saying, You are spies. Bereshit 42:14


+ 151 With this you shall be tested: By Pharaoh's life, you shall not leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here. Bereshit 42:15


+ 130 Send one of you and let him fetch your brother, and you will be imprisoned so that your words will be tested whether truth is with you, and if not, as Pharaoh lives, you are spies!" Bereshit 42:16


+ 101 And he put them in prison for three days. Bereshit 42:17


+ 120 On the third day, Joseph said to them: "Do this and live I fear God. Bereshit 42:18


+ 129 If you are honest, your one brother will be confined in your prison, and you, go bring the grain for the hunger of your households. Bereshit 42:19


+ 165 And they said to one another, "Indeed, we are guilty for our brother, that we witnessed the distress of his soul when he begged us, and we did not listen. That is why this trouble has come upon us." Bereshit 42:21


+ 109 And we said to him, We are honest; we were never spies. Bereshit 42:31


+ 96 But the hunger was severe in the land. Bereshit 43:1


+ 105 For had we not tarried, by now we would have already returned twice. Bereshit 43:10


+ 178 So Israel, their father, said to them, If so, then do this: take some of the choice products of the land in your vessels, and take down to the man as a gift, a little balm and a little honey, wax and lotus, pistachios and almonds. Bereshit 43:11


+ 140 And take double the money in your hands, and the money that was returned in the mouth of your sacks you shall return in your hands, perhaps it was an error. Bereshit 43:12


+ 116 And take your brother, and get up, go back to the man. Bereshit 43:13


+ 141 And may the Almighty God grant you compassion before the man, and he will release to you your other brother and Benjamin, and as for me as I am bereaved, I am bereaved. Bereshit 43:14


+ 136 So the men took this gift, and they took double the money in their hands and Benjamin, and they got up and went down to Egypt and stood before Joseph. Bereshit 43:15


+ 139 When Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the overseer of his house, Bring the men into the house and give orders to slaughter an animal and to prepare, for the men will eat with me at lunch. Bereshit 43:16


+ 117 And the man did as Joseph had said, and the man brought the men into Joseph's house. Bereshit 43:17


+ 172 Now the men were frightened because they had been brought into Joseph's house, and they said, On account of the money that came back in our sacks at first, we are brought, to roll upon us and to fall upon us and to take us as slaves and our donkeys as well. Bereshit 43:18


+ 126 So they drew near the man who was over Joseph's house, and they spoke to him at the entrance of the house. Bereshit 43:19


+ 137 And it came to pass when we came to the lodging place that we opened our sacks, and behold! each man's money was in the mouth of his sack, and we returned it in our hands. Bereshit 43:21


+ 112 And he washed his face and came out, and he restrained himself and said, "Serve the food." Bereshit 43:31


+ 132 Then he commanded the overseer of his house, saying, "Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put each man's money into the mouth of his sack. Bereshit 44:1


+ 132 And he said, Now indeed, so it is as you have spoken. But the one with whom it is found shall be my slave, and you shall be cleared. Bereshit 44:10


+ 135 So they hastened, and each one lowered his sack to the ground, and each one opened his sack. Bereshit 44:11


+ 127 He searched; he started with the eldest and finished with the youngest, and the goblet was found in Benjamin's sack. Bereshit 44:12


+ 114 So they rent their garments, and each one loaded his donkey, and they returned to the city. Bereshit 44:13


+ 128 And Judah and his brothers came to Joseph's house, and he was still there, and they fell before him upon the ground. Bereshit 44:14


+ 153 And Joseph said to them, What is this deed that you have committed? Don't you know that a person like me practices divination? Bereshit 44:15


+ 151 And Judah said, What shall we say to my master? What shall we speak, and how shall we exonerate ourselves? God has found your servants iniquity both we and the one in whose possession the goblet has been found. Bereshit 44:16


+ 131 But he said, Far be it from me to do this! The man in whose possession the goblet was found he shall be my slave, but as for you go up in peace to your father. Bereshit 44:17


+ 151 Then Judah approached him and said, Please, my lord, let now your servant speak something into my lord's ears, and let not your wrath be kindled against your servant, for you are like Pharaoh. Bereshit 44:18


+ 117 My lord asked his servants, saying, 'Have you a father or a brother?' Bereshit 44:19


+ 140 And you said to your servants, Bring him down to me, and I will set my eyes upon him. Bereshit 44:21


+ 117 It will come to pass, when he sees that the boy is gone, he will die, and your servants will have brought down the hoary head of your servant, our father, in grief to the grave. Bereshit 44:31


+ 166 Now Joseph could not bear all those standing beside him, and he called out, "Take everyone away from me!" So no one stood with him when Joseph made himself known to his brothers. Bereshit 45:1


+ 117 And you shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near to me, you and your children and your grandchildren, and your flocks and your cattle and all that is yours. Bereshit 45:10


+ 151 And I will sustain you there for there are still five years of famine lest you become impoverished, you and your household and all that is yours. Bereshit 45:11


+ 139 And behold, your eyes see, as well as the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth speaking to you. Bereshit 45:12


+ 133 And you shall tell my father of all my honor in Egypt and all that you have seen, and you shall hasten and bring my father down here. Bereshit 45:13


+ 146 And he fell on his brother Benjamin's neck and wept, and Benjamin wept on his neck. Bereshit 45:14


+ 221 And he kissed all his brothers and wept over them, and afterwards his brothers spoke with him. Bereshit 45:15


+ 131 And the voice was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, "Joseph's brothers have come!" And it pleased Pharaoh and his servants. Bereshit 45:16


+ 130 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Tell your brothers, Do this load up your beasts and go, enter the land of Canaan. Bereshit 45:17


+ 140 And take your father and your households and come to me, and I will give you the best of the land of Egypt, and you will eat the fat of the land. Bereshit 45:18


+ 148 And Joseph have been commanded to tell them, Do this: take yourselves wagons from the land of Egypt for your young children and for your wives, and you shall carry your father and come. Bereshit 45:19


+ 159 And the sons of Israel did so, and Joseph gave them wagons by Pharaoh's orders, and he gave them provisions for the way. Bereshit 45:21


+ 156 And Israel and all that was his set out and came to Beer sheba, and he slaughtered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. Bereshit 46:1


+ 122 And the sons of Simeon were Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, and Zohar, and Saul the son of the Canaanitess. Bereshit 46:10


+ 126 And the sons of Levi were Gershon, Kehath, and Merari. Bereshit 46:11


+ 149 And the sons of Judah were Er, Onan, Shelah, Perez, and Zerah. Now Er and Onan had died in the land of Canaan; and the sons of Perez were Hezron and Hamul. Bereshit 46:12


+ 123 And the sons of Issachar were Tola, Puvvah, Iob, and Shimron. Bereshit 46:13


+ 114 And the sons of Zebulun were Sered, Elon, and Jahleel. Bereshit 46:14


+ 151 These are the sons of Leah, that she bore to Jacob in Padan Aram, and Dinah his daughter. All the souls of his sons and daughters were thirty three. Bereshit 46:15


+ 125 And the sons of Gad were Ziphion, Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, Arodi, and Areli. Bereshit 46:16


+ 142 And the sons of Asher were Imnah, Ishvah, Ishvi, and Briah, and Serah, their sister; and the sons of Briah were Heber and Malkiel. Bereshit 46:17


+ 191 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Leah, and she bore these to Jacob, sixteen souls. Bereshit 46:18


+ 139 The sons of Rachel, Jacob's wife, were Joseph and Benjamin. Bereshit 46:19


+ 131 And the sons of Benjamin were Bela, Becher, Ashbel, Gera, Na'aman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, Huppim, and Ard. Bereshit 46:21


+ 128 Joseph said to his brothers and to his father's household, I will go up and tell Pharaoh, and I will say to him, My brothers and my father's household who were in the land of Canaan have come to me. Bereshit 46:31


+ 134 Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and he said, "My father and my brothers and their flocks and their cattle and all that is theirs, have come from the land of Canaan, and behold, they are in the land of Goshen." Bereshit 47:1


+ 132 So Jacob blessed Pharaoh and left Pharaoh's presence. Bereshit 47:10


+ 138 Joseph settled his father and his brothers, and he gave them property in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had mandated. Bereshit 47:11


+ 136 And Joseph sustained his father and his brothers and his father's entire household with bread according to the young children. Bereshit 47:12


+ 124 Now there was no food in the entire land, for the famine had grown exceedingly severe, and the land of Egypt and the land of Canaan were exhausted because of the famine. Bereshit 47:13


+ 125 And Joseph collected all the money that was found in the land of Egypt and in the land of Canaan with the grain that they were buying, and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house. Bereshit 47:14


+ 145 Now the money was depleted from the land of Egypt and from the land of Canaan, and all the Egyptians came to Joseph, saying, "Give us food; why should we die in your presence, since the money has been used up?" Bereshit 47:15


+ 133 And Joseph said, Give me your livestock, and I will give you food in return for your livestock, if the money has been used up. Bereshit 47:16


+ 137 So they brought their livestock to Joseph, and Joseph gave them food in return for the horses and for the livestock in flocks and in cattle and in donkeys, and he provided them with food in return for all their livestock in that year. Bereshit 47:17


+ 164 That year ended, and they came to him in the second year, and they said to him, We will not hide from my lord, for insofar as the money and the property in animals have been forfeited to my lord, nothing remains before my lord, except our bodies and our farmland. Bereshit 47:18


+ 166 Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our farmland? Buy us and our farmland for food, so that we and our farmland will be slaves to Pharaoh, and give us seed, so that we live and not die, and the soil will not lie fallow." Bereshit 47:19


+ 103 And he transferred the populace to the cities, from one end of the boundary of Egypt to its other end. Bereshit 47:21


+ 122 And he said, "Swear to me. " So he swore to him, and Israel prostrated himself on the head of the bed. Bereshit 47:31


+ 135 Now it came to pass after these incidents that someone said to Joseph, "Behold, your father is ill." So he took his two sons with him, Manasseh and Ephraim. Bereshit 48:1


+ 146 Now Israel's eyes had become heavy with age, to the extent that he could not see. So he drew them near to him, and he kissed them and embraced them. Bereshit 48:10


+ 158 And Israel said to Joseph, "I had not expected to see even your face, and behold, God has shown me your children too." Bereshit 48:11


+ 148 And Joseph took them out from upon his Jacob's knees, and he prostrated himself to the ground. Bereshit 48:12


+ 145 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim at his right, from Israel's left, and Manasseh at his left, from Israel's right, and he brought them near to him. Bereshit 48:13


+ 162 But Israel stretched out his right hand and placed it on Ephraim's head, although he was the younger, and his left hand he placed on Manasseh's head. He guided his hands deliberately, for Manasseh was the firstborn. Bereshit 48:14


+ 164 And he blessed Joseph and said, God, before Whom my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, walked, God Who sustained me as long as I am alive, until this day, Bereshit 48:15


+ 185 May the angel who redeemed me from all harm bless the youths, and may they be called by my name and the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, and may they multiply abundantly like fish, in the midst of the land. Bereshit 48:16


+ 156 And Joseph saw that his father was placing his right hand on Ephraim's head, and it displeased him. So he held up his father's hand to remove it from upon Ephraim's head to place it on Manasseh's head. Bereshit 48:17


+ 123 And Joseph said to his father, "Not so, Father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head." Bereshit 48:18


+ 156 But his father refused, and he said, I know, my son, I know; he too will become a people, and he too will be great. But his younger brother will be greater than he, and his children's fame will fill the nations." Bereshit 48:19


+ 173 And Israel said to Joseph, Behold, I am going to die, and God will be with you, and He will return you to the land of your forefathers. Bereshit 48:21


+ 153 Jacob called for his sons and said, Gather and I will tell you what will happen to you at the end of days. Bereshit 49:1


+ 160 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the student of the law from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, and to him will be a gathering of peoples. Bereshit 49:10


+ 142 He binds his foal to a vine, and to a tendril he binds his young donkey. He launders his garment with wine, and with the blood of grapes binds his raiment. Bereshit 49:11


+ 103 He is red eyed from wine and white toothed from milk. Bereshit 49:12


+ 125 Zebulun will dwell on the coast of the seas; he will be at the harbor of the ships, and his boundary will be at Zidon. Bereshit 49:13


+ 113 Issachar is a bony donkey, lying between the boundaries. Bereshit 49:14


+ 142 He saw a resting place, that it was good, and the land, that it was pleasant, and he bent his shoulder to bear burdens, and he became an indentured laborer. Bereshit 49:15


+ 119 Dan will avenge his people, like one, the tribes of Israel. Bereshit 49:16


+ 131 Dan will be a serpent on the road, a viper on the path, which bites the horse's heels, so its rider falls backwards. Bereshit 49:17


+ 96 For Your salvation, I hope, O Lord! Bereshit 49:18


+ 106 As for Gad, a troop will troop forth from him, and it will troop back in its tracks. Bereshit 49:19


+ 125 Naphtali is a swift gazelle; he is one who utters beautiful words. Bereshit 49:21


+ 131 There they buried Abraham and his wife Sarah, there they buried Isaac and his wife Rebecca, and there I buried Leah. Bereshit 49:31


+ 116 Joseph fell on his father's face, and he wept over him and kissed him. Bereshit 50:1


+ 168 And they came to the threshing floor of the thornbushes, which is on the other side of the Jordan, and there they conducted a very great and impressive eulogy, and he made for his father a mourning of seven days. Bereshit 50:10


+ 167 The Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land, saw the mourning at the threshing floor of the thornbushes, and they said, This is an intense mourning for the Egyptians. Therefore, they named it Abel Mizraim, which is on the other side of the Jordan. Bereshit 50:11


+ 108 And his sons did to him just as he had commanded them. Bereshit 50:12


+ 158 And his sons carried him to the land of Canaan, and they buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which field Abraham had bought for burial property from Ephron the Hittite before Mamre. Bereshit 50:13


+ 124 And Joseph returned to Egypt, he and his brothers, and all who had gone up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father. Bereshit 50:14


+ 143 Now Joseph's brothers saw that their father had died, and they said, Perhaps Joseph will hate us and return to us all the evil that we did to him. Bereshit 50:15


+ 125 So they commanded messengers to go to Joseph, to say, Your father commanded us before his death, saying, Bereshit 50:16


+ 187 So shall you say to Joseph, Please, forgive now your brothers transgression and their sin, for they did evil to you. Now please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father. Joseph wept when they spoke to him. Bereshit 50:17


+ 127 His brothers also went and fell before him, and they said, Behold, we are your slaves. Bereshit 50:18


+ 117 But Joseph said to them, Don't be afraid, for am I instead of God? Bereshit 50:19


+ 128 So now do not fear. I will sustain you and your small children. And he comforted them and spoke to their hearts. Bereshit 50:21


+ 195 And these are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt; with Jacob, each man and his household came: Shemot 1:1


+ 154 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah. Shemot 1:2


+ 146 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin. Shemot 1:3


+ 140 Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher. Shemot 1:4


+ 182 Now all those descended from Jacob were seventy souls, and Joseph, who was in Egypt. Shemot 1:5


+ 160 Now Joseph died, as well as all his brothers and all that generation. Shemot 1:6


+ 164 The children of Israel were fruitful and swarmed and increased and became very very strong, and the land became filled with them. Shemot 1:7


+ 158 A new king arose over Egypt, who did not know about Joseph. Shemot 1:8


+ 157 He said to his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more numerous and stronger than we are. Shemot 1:9


+ 163 Get ready, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they increase, and a war befall us, and they join our enemies and depart from the land. Shemot 1:10


+ 160 So they appointed over them tax collectors to afflict them with their burdens, and they built store cities for Pharaoh, namely Pithom and Raamses. Shemot 1:11


+ 184 But as much as they would afflict them, so did they multiply and so did they gain strength, and they were disgusted because of the children of Israel. Shemot 1:12


+ 137 So the Egyptians enslaved the children of Israel with back breaking labor. Shemot 1:13


+ 181 And they embittered their lives with hard labor, with clay and with bricks and with all kinds of labor in the fields, all their work that they worked with them with back breaking labor. Shemot 1:14


+ 142 Now the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, one who was named Shifrah, and the second, who was named Puah. Shemot 1:15


+ 145 And he said, When you deliver the Hebrew women, and you see on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall put him to death, but if it is a daughter, she may live. Shemot 1:16


+ 160 The midwives, however, feared God; so they did not do as the king of Egypt had spoken to them, but they enabled the boys to live. Shemot 1:17


+ 158 So the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and said to them, Why have you done this thing, that you have enabled the boys to live? Shemot 1:18


+ 176 And the midwives said to Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women, for they are skilled as midwives; when the midwife has not yet come to them, they have already given birth. Shemot 1:19


+ 148 God benefited the midwives, and the people multiplied and became very strong. Shemot 1:20


+ 141 Now it took place when the midwives feared God, that He made houses for them. Shemot 1:21


+ 155 And Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, Every son who is born you shall cast into the Nile, and every daughter you shall allow to live. Shemot 1:22


+ 144 A man of the house of Levi went and married a daughter of Levi. Shemot 2:1


+ 146 The child grew up, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became like her son. She named him Moses, and she said, For I drew him from the water. Shemot 2:10


+ 179 Now it came to pass in those days that Moses grew up and went out to his brothers and looked at their burdens, and he saw an Egyptian man striking a Hebrew man of his brothers. Shemot 2:11


+ 146 He turned this way and that way, and he saw that there was no man; so he struck the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. Shemot 2:12


+ 152 He went out on the second day, and behold, two Hebrew men were quarreling, and he said to the wicked one, Why are you going to strike your friend? Shemot 2:13


+ 160 And he retorted, Who made you a man, a prince, and a judge over us? Do you plan to slay me as you have slain the Egyptian? Moses became frightened and said, Indeed, the matter has become known! Shemot 2:14


+ 160 Pharaoh heard of this incident, and he sought to slay Moses; so Moses fled from before Pharaoh. He stayed in the land of Midian, and he sat down by a well. Shemot 2:15


+ 122 Now the chief of Midian had seven daughters, and they came and drew water, and they filled the troughs to water their father's flocks. Shemot 2:16


+ 145 But the shepherds came and drove them away; so Moses arose and rescued them and watered their flocks. Shemot 2:17


+ 126 They came to their father Reuel, and he said, Why have you come so quickly today? Shemot 2:18


+ 141 They replied, An Egyptian man rescued us from the hands of the shepherds, and he also drew water for us and watered the flocks. Shemot 2:19


+ 137 Moses consented to stay with the man, and he gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses. Shemot 2:21


+ 152 Moses was pasturing the flocks of Jethro, his father in law, the chief of Midian, and he led the flocks after the free pastureland, and he came to the mountain of God, to Horeb. Shemot 3:1


+ 128 So now come, and I will send you to Pharaoh, and take My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt. Shemot 3:10


+ 119 But Moses said to God, Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should take the children of Israel out of Egypt? Shemot 3:11


+ 130 And He said, For I will be with you, and this is the sign for you that it was I Who sent you. When you take the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain. Shemot 3:12


+ 138 And Moses said to God, Behold I come to the children of Israel, and I say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? what shall I say to them? Shemot 3:13


+ 140 God said to Moses, Ehyeh asher ehyeh I will be what I will be, and He said, So shall you say to the children of Israel, Ehyeh has sent me to you. Shemot 3:14


+ 145 And God said further to Moses, So shall you say to the children of Israel, The Lord God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is how I should be mentioned in every generation. Shemot 3:15


+ 152 Go and assemble the elders of Israel, and say to them, The Lord God of your forefathers has appeared to me, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, I have surely remembered you and what is being done to you in Egypt. Shemot 3:16


+ 144 And I said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt, to the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, to a land flowing with milk and honey. Shemot 3:17


+ 132 And they will hearken to your voice, and you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt, and you shall say to him, The Lord God of the Hebrews has happened upon us, and now, let us go for a three days journey in the desert and offer up sacrifices to the Lord, our God. Shemot 3:18


+ 112 However, I know that the king of Egypt will not permit you to go, except through a mighty hand. Shemot 3:19


+ 116 And I will put this people's favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and it will come to pass that when you go, you will not go empty handed. Shemot 3:21


+ 151 Moses answered and said, Behold they will not believe me, and they will not heed my voice, but they will say, The Lord has not appeared to you. Shemot 4:1


+ 125 Moses said to the Lord, I beseech You, O Lord. I am not a man of words, neither from yesterday nor from the day before yesterday, nor from the time You have spoken to Your servant, for I am heavy of mouth and heavy of tongue. Shemot 4:10


+ 134 But the Lord said to him, Who gave man a mouth, or who makes one dumb or deaf or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Shemot 4:11


+ 125 So now, go! I will be with your mouth, and I will instruct you what you shall speak. Shemot 4:12


+ 120 But he said, I beseech You, O Lord, send now Your message with whom You would send. Shemot 4:13


+ 149 And the Lord's wrath was kindled against Moses, and He said, Is there not Aaron your brother, the Levite? I know that he will surely speak, and behold, he is coming forth toward you, and when he sees you, he will rejoice in his heart. Shemot 4:14


+ 130 You shall speak to him, and you shall put the words into his mouth, and I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will instruct you both what you shall do. Shemot 4:15


+ 116 And he will speak for you to the people, and it will be that he will be your speaker, and you will be his leader. Shemot 4:16


+ 131 And you shall take this staff in your hand, with which you shall perform the signs. Shemot 4:17


+ 179 Moses went and returned to Jether, his father in law, and he said to him, Let me go now and return to my brothers who are in Egypt, and let me see whether they are still alive. So Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace. Shemot 4:18


+ 143 The Lord said to Moses in Midian, Go, return to Egypt, for all the people who sought your life have died. Shemot 4:19


+ 153 The Lord said to Moses, When you go to return to Egypt, see all the signs that I have placed in your hand and perform them before Pharaoh, but I will strengthen his heart, and he will not send out the people. Shemot 4:21


+ 150 And the people believed, and they heard that the Lord had remembered the children of Israel, and they kneeled and prostrated themselves. Shemot 4:31


+ 139 And afterwards, Moses and Aaron came and said to Pharaoh, So said the Lord God of Israel, 'Send out My people, and let them sacrifice to Me in the desert. Shemot 5:1


+ 129 So the taskmasters of the people and their officers came out and spoke to the people, saying, So said Pharaoh, I am not giving you stubble. Shemot 5:10


+ 149 You go take for yourselves stubble from wherever you find it, because nothing will be reduced from your work. Shemot 5:11


+ 111 So the people scattered throughout the entire land of Egypt, to gather a gleaning for stubble. Shemot 5:12


+ 149 And the taskmasters were pressing them, saying, Finish your work, the requirement of each day in its day, just as when there was stubble. Shemot 5:13


+ 156 And the officers of the children of Israel whom Pharaoh's taskmasters had appointed over them were beaten, saying, Why have you not completed your quota to make bricks like the day before yesterday, neither yesterday nor today? Shemot 5:14


+ 129 So the officers of the children of Israel came and cried out to Pharaoh, saying, Why do you do this to your servants? Shemot 5:15


+ 159 Stubble is not given to your servants, but they tell us, Make bricks, and behold, your servants are beaten, and your people are sinning. Shemot 5:16


+ 121 But he said, You are lax, just lax. Therefore, you say, Let us go, let us sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 5:17


+ 137 And now, go and work, but you will not be given stubble. Nevertheless, the same number of bricks you must give. Shemot 5:18


+ 136 The officers of the children of Israel saw them in distress, saying, Do not reduce the number of your bricks, the requirement of each day in its day. Shemot 5:19


+ 156 And they said to them, May the Lord look upon you and judge, for you have brought us into foul odor in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his servants, to place a sword into their hands to kill us. Shemot 5:21


+ 132 And the Lord said to Moses, Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh, for with a mighty hand he will send them out, and with a mighty hand he will drive them out of his land. Shemot 6:1


+ 114 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 6:10


+ 123 Come, speak to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and he will let the children of Israel out of his land. Shemot 6:11


+ 147 But Moses spoke before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of Israel did not hearken to me. How then will Pharaoh hearken to me, seeing that I am of closed lips? Shemot 6:12


+ 135 So the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, and He commanded them concerning the children of Israel and concerning Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to let the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 6:13


+ 141 These following are the heads of the fathers' houses: The sons of Reuben, Israel's firstborn: Enoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Karmi, these are the families of Reuben. Shemot 6:14


+ 131 And the sons of Simeon: Jemuel and Jamin and Ohad and Jachin and Zohar and Saul, the son of the Canaanitess, these are the families of Simeon. Shemot 6:15


+ 148 And these are the names of Levi's sons after their generations: Gershon, Kehath, and Merari, and the years of Levi's life were one hundred thirty seven years. Shemot 6:16


+ 136 The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei to their families. Shemot 6:17


+ 142 And the sons of Kehath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel, and the years of Kehath's life were one hundred thirty three years. Shemot 6:18


+ 126 And the sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi; these are the families of the Levites according to their generations. Shemot 6:19


+ 116 And the sons of Izhar were Korah and Nepheg and Zichri. Shemot 6:21


+ 133 The Lord said to Moses, See! I have made you a lord over Pharaoh, and Aaron, your brother, will be your speaker. Shemot 7:1


+ 128 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and they did so, as the Lord had commanded; Aaron cast his staff before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent. Shemot 7:10


+ 135 Then, Pharaoh too summoned the wise men and the magicians, and the necromancers of Egypt also did likewise with their magic. Shemot 7:11


+ 123 Each one of them cast down his staff, and they became serpents; but Aaron's staff swallowed their staffs. Shemot 7:12


+ 133 But Pharaoh's heart remained steadfast, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 7:13


+ 123 The Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh's heart is heavy; he has refused to let the people out. Shemot 7:14


+ 136 Go to Pharaoh in the morning; behold, he is going forth to the water, and you shall stand opposite him on the bank of the Nile, and the staff that was turned into a serpent you shall take in your hand. Shemot 7:15


+ 145 And you shall say to him, The Lord God of the Hebrews sent me to you, saying, Send forth My people, so that they may serve Me in the desert, but behold, until now, you have not hearkened. Shemot 7:16


+ 137 So said the Lord, With this you will know that I am the Lord. Behold, I will smite with the staff that is in my hand upon the water that is in the Nile, and it will turn to blood. Shemot 7:17


+ 129 And the fish that are in the Nile will die, and the Nile will become putrid, and the Egyptians will weary in their efforts to drink water from the Nile. Shemot 7:18


+ 144 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Take your staff and stretch forth your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, over their canals, over their ponds, and over all their bodies of water, and they will become blood, and there will be blood throughout the entire land of Egypt, even in wood and in stone. Shemot 7:19


+ 121 And the fish that were in the Nile died, and the Nile became putrid; the Egyptians could not drink water from the Nile, and there was blood throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 7:21


+ 150 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, stretch forth your hand with your staff over the rivers, over the canals, and over the ponds, and bring up the frogs on the land of Egypt. Shemot 8:1


+ 119 They gathered them into many heaps, and the land stank. Shemot 8:10


+ 129 When Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 8:11


+ 124 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch forth your staff and strike the dust of the earth, and it shall become lice throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 8:12


+ 119 They did so, and Aaron stretched forth his hand with his staff and struck the dust of the earth, and the lice were upon man and beast; all the dust of the earth became lice throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 8:13


+ 116 And the necromancers did likewise with their secret rites to bring out the lice, but they could not, and the lice were upon man and beast. Shemot 8:14


+ 151 So the necromancers said to Pharaoh, It is the finger of God, but Pharaoh's heart remained steadfast, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 8:15


+ 133 And the Lord said to Moses, Arise early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh, behold, he is going out to the water, and you shall say to him, So said the Lord, Let My people go out and serve Me. Shemot 8:16


+ 147 For if you do not let My people go, behold, I will incite against you and against your servants and against your people and in your houses a mixture of noxious creatures, and the houses of Egypt will be filled with the mixture of noxious creatures, as well as the land upon which they are. Shemot 8:17


+ 157 And I will separate on that day the land of Goshen, upon which My people stand, that there will be no mixture of noxious creatures there, in order that you know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth. Shemot 8:18


+ 125 And I will make a redemption between My people and your people; this sign will come about tomorrow." ' " Shemot 8:19


+ 149 Thereupon, Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron, and he said, "Go, sacrifice to your God in the land." Shemot 8:21


+ 137 The Lord said to Moses, Come to Pharaoh and speak to him, 'So said the Lord, God of the Hebrews, Let My people go, that they may serve Me. Shemot 9:1


+ 128 So they took furnace soot, and they stood before Pharaoh, and Moses cast it heavenward, and it became boils breaking out into blisters upon man and upon beast. Shemot 9:10


+ 119 And the necromancers could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were upon the necromancers and upon all Egypt. Shemot 9:11


+ 120 But the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord spoke to Moses. Shemot 9:12


+ 130 The Lord said to Moses, Rise early in the morning and stand erect before Pharaoh, and say to him, So said the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, Let My people go so that they may worship Me. Shemot 9:13


+ 149 Because this time, I am sending all My plagues into your heart and into your servants and into your people, in order that you know that there is none like Me in the entire earth. Shemot 9:14


+ 151 For if now I had stretched forth My hand, and I had smitten you and your people with pestilence, you would have been annihilated from the earth. Shemot 9:15


+ 124 But, for this reason I have allowed you to stand, in order to show you My strength and in order to declare My name all over the earth. Shemot 9:16


+ 130 If you still tread upon My people, not letting them out, Shemot 9:17


+ 130 Behold, I am going to rain down at this time tomorrow a very heavy hail, the likes of which has never been in Egypt from the day of its being founded until now. Shemot 9:18


+ 137 And now, send, gather in your livestock and all that you have in the field, any man or beast that is found in the field and not brought into the house the hail shall fall on them, and they will die. Shemot 9:19


+ 117 But he who did not pay attention to the word of the Lord left his servants and his livestock in the field. Shemot 9:21


+ 111 Though the flax and the barley have been broken, for the barley is in the ear, and the flax is in the stalk. Shemot 9:31


+ 157 The Lord said to Moses: Come to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants, in order that I may place these signs of Mine in his midst, Shemot 10:1


+ 130 And in order that you tell into the ears of your son and your son's son how I made a mockery of the Egyptians, and that you tell of My signs that I placed in them, and you will know that I am the Lord. Shemot 10:2


+ 131 So Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh and said to him, So said the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, How long will you refuse to humble yourself before Me? Let My people go, and they will worship Me. Shemot 10:3


+ 119 For if you refuse to let them go, behold, tomorrow I am going to bring locusts into your borders. Shemot 10:4


+ 136 And they will obscure the view of the earth, and no one will be able to see the earth, and they will eat the surviving remnant, which remains for you from the hail, and they will eat all your trees that grow out of the field. Shemot 10:5


+ 152 And your houses and the houses of all your servants and the houses of all the Egyptians will be filled, which your fathers and your fathers fathers did not see since the day they were on the earth until this day. Therewith, he turned and left Pharaoh. Shemot 10:6


+ 140 Pharaoh's servants said to him, How long will this one be a stumbling block to us? Let the people go and they will worship their God. Don't you yet know that Egypt is lost? Shemot 10:7


+ 134 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh, and he said to them, Go, worship the Lord your God. Who and who are going? Shemot 10:8


+ 134 Moses said, With our youth and with our elders we will go, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our cattle we will go, for it is a festival of the Lord to us. Shemot 10:9


+ 132 So he said to them, So may the Lord be with you, just as I will let you and your young children out. See that evil is before your faces. Shemot 10:10


+ 117 Not so; let the men go now and worship the Lord, for that is what you request. And he chased them out from before Pharaoh. Shemot 10:11


+ 139 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, and they will ascend over the land of Egypt, and they will eat all the vegetation of the earth, all that the hail has left over. Shemot 10:12


+ 150 So Moses stretched forth his staff over the land of Egypt, and the Lord led an east wind in the land all that day and all the night. By the time it was morning, the east wind had borne the locusts. Shemot 10:13


+ 151 The locusts ascended over the entire land of Egypt, and they alighted within all the borders of Egypt, very severe; before them, there was never such a locust plague, and after it, there will never be one like it. Shemot 10:14


+ 190 They obscured the view of all the earth, and the earth became darkened, and they ate all the vegetation of the earth and all the fruits of the trees, which the hail had left over, and no greenery was left in the trees or in the vegetation of the fields throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 10:15


+ 135 Pharaoh hastened to summon Moses and Aaron, and he said, I have sinned against the Lord your God and against you. Shemot 10:16


+ 114 But now, forgive now my sin only this time and entreat the Lord your God, and let Him remove from me just this death. Shemot 10:17


+ 115 So he left Pharaoh and entreated the Lord, Shemot 10:18


+ 133 And the Lord reversed a very strong west wind, and it picked up the locusts and thrust them into the Red Sea. Not one locust remained within all the borders of Egypt. Shemot 10:19


+ 116 But the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go out. Shemot 10:20


+ 126 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand toward the heavens, and there will be darkness over the land of Egypt, and the darkness will become darker. Shemot 10:21


+ 122 So Moses stretched forth his hand toward the heavens, and there was thick darkness over the entire land of Egypt for three days. Shemot 10:22


+ 125 They did not see each other, and no one rose from his place for three days, but for all the children of Israel there was light in their dwellings. Shemot 10:23


+ 135 Pharaoh summoned Moses and said, Go! Worship the Lord, but your flocks and your cattle shall be left. Your young children may also go with you. Shemot 10:24


+ 140 But Moses said, You too shall give sacrifices and burnt offerings into our hands, and we will make them for the Lord our God. Shemot 10:25


+ 143 And also our cattle will go with us; not a single hoof will remain, for we will take from it to worship the Lord our God, and we do not know how much we will worship the Lord until we arrive there. Shemot 10:26


+ 114 The Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he was unwilling to let them out. Shemot 10:27


+ 129 Pharaoh said to him, Go away from me! Beware! You shall no longer see my face, for on the day that you see my face, you shall die! Shemot 10:28


+ 126 Thereupon, Moses said, You have spoken correctly; I shall no longer see your face. Shemot 10:29


+ 152 The Lord said to Moses, I will bring one more plague upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go from here. When he lets you out, he will completely drive you out of here. Shemot 11:1


+ 117 Please, speak into the ears of the people, and let them borrow, each man from his friend and each woman from her friend, silver vessels and golden vessels. Shemot 11:2


+ 128 So the Lord gave the people favor in the Egyptians' eyes; also the man Moses was highly esteemed in the land of Egypt in the eyes of Pharaoh's servants and in the eyes of the people. Shemot 11:3


+ 115 Moses said, So said the Lord, At the dividing point of the night, I will go out into the midst of Egypt, Shemot 11:4


+ 118 And every firstborn in the land of Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the firstborn of the slave woman who is behind the millstones, and every firstborn animal. Shemot 11:5


+ 130 And there will be a great cry throughout the entire land of Egypt, such as there never has been and such as there shall never be again. Shemot 11:6


+ 115 But to all the children of Israel, not one dog will whet its tongue against either man or beast, in order that you shall know that the Lord will separate between the Egyptians and between Israel. Shemot 11:7


+ 137 And all these servants of yours will come down to me and prostrate themselves to me, saying, Go out, you and all the people who are at your feet, and afterwards I will go out. Then he exited from Pharaoh with burning anger. Shemot 11:8


+ 123 The Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh will not heed you, in order to increase My miracles in the land of Egypt. Shemot 11:9


+ 122 Moses and Aaron had performed all these miracles before Pharaoh, but the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel out of his land. Shemot 11:10


+ 99 The Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, Shemot 12:1


+ 101 This month shall be to you the head of the months; to you it shall be the first of the months of the year. Shemot 12:2


+ 117 Speak to the entire community of Israel, saying, On the tenth of this month, let each one take a lamb for each parental home, a lamb for each household. Shemot 12:3


+ 124 But if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his neighbor who is nearest to his house shall take one according to the number of people, each one according to one's ability to eat, shall you be counted for the lamb. Shemot 12:4


+ 114 You shall have a perfect male lamb in its first year; you may take it either from the sheep or from the goats. Shemot 12:5


+ 138 And you shall keep it for inspection until the fourteenth day of this month, and the entire congregation of the community of Israel shall slaughter it in the afternoon. Shemot 12:6


+ 114 And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel, on the houses in which they will eat it. Shemot 12:7


+ 116 And on this night, they shall eat the flesh, roasted over the fire, and unleavened cakes; with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Shemot 12:8


+ 113 You shall not eat it rare or boiled in water, except roasted over the fire its head with its legs and with its innards. Shemot 12:9


+ 102 And you shall not leave over any of it until morning, and whatever is left over of it until morning, you shall burn in fire. Shemot 12:10


+ 119 And this is how you shall eat it: your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste it is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 12:11


+ 119 I will pass through the land of Egypt on this night, and I will smite every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast, and upon all the gods of Egypt will I wreak judgments I, the Lord. Shemot 12:12


+ 121 And the blood will be for you for a sign upon the houses where you will be, and I will see the blood and skip over you, and there will be no plague to destroy you when I smite the people of the land of Egypt. Shemot 12:13


+ 100 And this day shall be for you as a memorial, and you shall celebrate it as a festival for the Lord; throughout your generations, you shall celebrate it as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:14


+ 132 For seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes, but on the preceding day you shall clear away all leaven from your houses, for whoever eats leaven from the first day until the seventh day that soul shall be cut off from Israel. Shemot 12:15


+ 119 And on the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation; no work may be performed on them, but what is eaten by any soul that alone may be performed for you. Shemot 12:16


+ 126 And you shall watch over the unleavened cakes, for on this very day I have taken your legions out of the land of Egypt, and you shall observe this day throughout your generations, as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:17


+ 116 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, you shall eat unleavened cakes, until the twenty first day of the month in the evening. Shemot 12:18


+ 135 For seven days, leavening shall not be found in your houses, for whoever eats leavening that soul shall be cut off from the community of Israel, both among the strangers and the native born of the land. Shemot 12:19


+ 122 You shall not eat any leavening; throughout all your dwellings you shall eat unleavened cakes." Shemot 12:20


+ 136 Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, Draw forth or buy for yourselves sheep for your families and slaughter the Passover sacrifice. Shemot 12:21


+ 129 And you shall take a bunch of hyssop and immerse it in the blood that is in the basin, and you shall extend to the lintel and to the two doorposts the blood that is in the basin, and you shall not go out, any man from the entrance of his house until morning. Shemot 12:22


+ 141 The Lord will pass to smite the Egyptians, and He will see the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, and the Lord will pass over the entrance, and He will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses to smite you. Shemot 12:23


+ 118 And you shall keep this matter as a statute for you and for your children forever. Shemot 12:24


+ 101 And it shall come to pass when you enter the land that the Lord will give you, as He spoke, that you shall observe this service. Shemot 12:25


+ 114 And it will come to pass if your children say to you, What is this service to you? Shemot 12:26


+ 139 You shall say, It is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord, for He passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, and He saved our houses. And the people kneeled and prostrated themselves. Shemot 12:27


+ 106 So the children of Israel went and did; as the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. Shemot 12:28


+ 120 It came to pass at midnight, and the Lord smote every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who is in the dungeon, and every firstborn animal. Shemot 12:29


+ 129 And Pharaoh arose at night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was a great outcry in Egypt, for there was no house in which no one was dead. Shemot 12:30


+ 140 So he called for Moses and Aaron at night, and he said, Get up and get out from among my people, both you, as well as the children of Israel, and go, worship the Lord as you have spoken. Shemot 12:31


+ 107 Take also your flocks and also your cattle, as you have spoken, and go, but you shall also bless me. Shemot 12:32


+ 125 So the Egyptians took hold of the people to hasten to send them out of the land, for they said, "We are all dead." Shemot 12:33


+ 141 The people picked up their dough when it was not yet leavened, their leftovers bound in their garments on their shoulders. Shemot 12:34


+ 147 And the children of Israel did according to Moses' order, and they borrowed from the Egyptians silver objects, golden objects, and garments. Shemot 12:35


+ 115 The Lord gave the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and they lent them, and they emptied out Egypt. Shemot 12:36


+ 133 The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot, the men, besides the young children. Shemot 12:37


+ 131 And also, a great mixed multitude went up with them, and flocks and cattle, very much livestock. Shemot 12:38


+ 128 They baked the dough that they had taken out of Egypt as unleavened cakes, for it had not leavened, for they were driven out of Egypt, and they could not tarry, and also, they had not made provisions for themselves. Shemot 12:39


+ 108 And the habitation of the children of Israel, that they dwelled in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. Shemot 12:40


+ 104 It came to pass at the end of four hundred and thirty years, and it came to pass in that very day, that all the legions of the Lord went out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 12:41


+ 113 It is a night of anticipation for the Lord, to take them out of the land of Egypt; this night is the Lord's, guarding all the children of Israel throughout their generations. Shemot 12:42


+ 131 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, This is the statute of the Passover sacrifice: No estranged one may partake of it. Shemot 12:43


+ 122 And every man's slave, purchased for his money you shall circumcise him; then he will be permitted to partake of it. Shemot 12:44


+ 116 A sojourner or a hired hand may not partake of it. Shemot 12:45


+ 118 It must be eaten in one house; you shall not take any of the meat out of the house to the outside, neither shall you break any of its bones. Shemot 12:46


+ 109 The entire community of Israel shall make it. Shemot 12:47


+ 149 And should a proselyte reside with you, he shall make a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. All his males shall be circumcised, and then he may approach to make it, and he will be like the native of the land, but no uncircumcised male may partake of it. Shemot 12:48


+ 104 There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who resides in your midst." Shemot 12:49


+ 113 All the children of Israel did; as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. Shemot 12:50


+ 96 It came to pass on that very day, that the Lord took the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt with their legions. Shemot 12:51


+ 93 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 13:1


+ 125 Sanctify to Me every firstborn, every one that opens the womb among the children of Israel among man and among animals; it is Mine. Shemot 13:2


+ 139 Moses said to the people, Remember this day, when you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, for with a mighty hand, the Lord took you out of here, and therefore no leaven shall be eaten. Shemot 13:3


+ 111 Today you are going out, in the month of spring. Shemot 13:4


+ 140 And it will come to pass that the Lord will bring you into the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, which He swore to your forefathers to give you a land flowing with milk and honey and you shall perform this service in this month. Shemot 13:5


+ 127 For seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes, and on the seventh day, there is a festival for the Lord. Shemot 13:6


+ 136 Unleavened cakes shall be eaten during the seven days, and no leaven shall be seen of yours in your possession, and no leavening shall be seen of yours throughout all of your borders. Shemot 13:7


+ 121 And you shall tell your son on that day, saying, Because of this, the Lord did this for me when I went out of Egypt. Shemot 13:8


+ 120 And it shall be to you as a sign upon your hand and as a remembrance between your eyes, in order that the law of the Lord shall be in your mouth, for with a mighty hand the Lord took you out of Egypt. Shemot 13:9


+ 125 And you shall keep this statute at its appointed time, from year to year. Shemot 13:10


+ 103 And it will come to pass when the Lord will bring you into the land of the Canaanites, as He swore to you and to your forefathers, and He has given it to you, Shemot 13:11


+ 133 That you shall give over to the Lord whatever opens the womb, and every miscarriage that opens the womb of an animal which will be yours, the males belong to the Lord. Shemot 13:12


+ 103 And every firstborn donkey you shall redeem with a lamb, and if you do not redeem it, you shall decapitate it, and every firstborn of man among your sons, you shall redeem. Shemot 13:13


+ 123 And it will come to pass if your son asks you in the future, saying, What is this? you shall say to him, With a mighty hand did the Lord take us out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Shemot 13:14


+ 162 And it came to pass when Pharaoh was too stubborn to let us out, the Lord slew every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man and the firstborn of beast. Therefore, I slaughter for a sacrifice all males that open the womb, and every firstborn of my sons I will redeem. Shemot 13:15


+ 106 And it shall be for a sign upon your hand and for ornaments between your eyes, for with a mighty hand did the Lord take us out of Egypt. Shemot 13:16


+ 131 It came to pass when Pharaoh let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines for it was near, because God said, Lest the people reconsider when they see war and return to Egypt. Shemot 13:17


+ 138 So God led the people around by way of the desert to the Red Sea, and the children of Israel were armed when they went up out of Egypt. Shemot 13:18


+ 153 Moses took Joseph's bones with him, for he had adjured the sons of Israel, saying, God will surely remember you, and you shall bring up my bones from here with you. Shemot 13:19


+ 103 They traveled from Succoth, and they encamped in Etham, at the edge of the desert. Shemot 13:20


+ 95 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to cause it to lead them on the way and at night in a pillar of fire to give them light, they thus could travel day and night. Shemot 13:21


+ 110 He did not move away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire at night from before the people. Shemot 13:22


+ 98 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 14:1


+ 126 Speak to the children of Israel, and let them turn back and encamp in front of Pi hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea; in front of Baal Zephon, you shall encamp opposite it, by the sea. Shemot 14:2


+ 130 And Pharaoh will say about the children of Israel, They are trapped in the land. The desert has closed in upon them. Shemot 14:3


+ 119 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will pursue them, and I will be glorified through Pharaoh and through his entire force, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord And they did so. Shemot 14:4


+ 145 It was reported to Pharaoh that the people had fled; and Pharaoh and his servants had a change of heart toward the people, and they said, What is this that we have done, that we have released Israel from serving us? Shemot 14:5


+ 106 So he harnessed his chariot, and took his people with him. Shemot 14:6


+ 113 He took six hundred select chariots and all the chariots of Egypt, with officers over them all. Shemot 14:7


+ 133 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and he chased after the children of Israel, and the children of Israel were marching out triumphantly. Shemot 14:8


+ 135 The Egyptians chased after them and overtook them encamped by the sea every horse of Pharaoh's chariots, his horsemen, and his force beside Pi hahiroth, in front of Ba'al Zephon. Shemot 14:9


+ 157 Pharaoh drew near, and the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold! the Egyptians were advancing after them. They were very frightened, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord. Shemot 14:10


+ 149 They said to Moses, Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us to die in the desert? What is this that you have done to us to take us out of Egypt? Shemot 14:11


+ 106 Isn't this the thing about which we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, Leave us alone, and we will serve the Egyptians, because we would rather serve the Egyptians than die in the desert. Shemot 14:12


+ 143 Moses said to the people, Don't be afraid! Stand firm and see the Lord's salvation that He will wreak for you today, for the way you have seen the Egyptians is only today, but you shall no longer continue to see them for eternity. Shemot 14:13


+ 111 The Lord will fight for you, but you shall remain silent. Shemot 14:14


+ 124 The Lord said to Moses, Why do you cry out to Me? Speak to the children of Israel and let them travel. Shemot 14:15


+ 112 And you raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and split it, and the children of Israel shall come in the midst of the sea on dry land. Shemot 14:16


+ 105 And I, behold! I shall harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they will come after you, and I will be glorified through Pharaoh, and through all his force, through his chariots, and through his horsemen. Shemot 14:17


+ 114 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I will be glorified through Pharaoh, through his chariots, and through his horsemen. Shemot 14:18


+ 124 Then the angel of God, who had been going in front of the Israelite camp, moved and went behind them, and the pillar of cloud moved away from in front of them and stood behind them. Shemot 14:19


+ 129 And he came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel, and there were the cloud and the darkness, and it illuminated the night, and one did not draw near the other all night long. Shemot 14:20


+ 121 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord led the sea with the strong east wind all night, and He made the sea into dry land and the waters split. Shemot 14:21


+ 106 Then the children of Israel came into the midst of the sea on dry land, and the waters were to them as a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:22


+ 117 The Egyptians pursued and came after them all Pharaoh s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen, into the midst of the sea. Shemot 14:23


+ 128 It came about in the morning watch that the Lord looked down over the Egyptian camp through a pillar of fire and cloud, and He threw the Egyptian camp into confusion. Shemot 14:24


+ 137 And He removed the wheels of their chariots, and He led them with heaviness, and the Egyptians said, Let me run away from the Israelites because the Lord is fighting for them against the Egyptians. Shemot 14:25


+ 117 Thereupon, the Lord said to Moses, Stretch out your hand over the sea, and let the water return upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. Shemot 14:26


+ 138 So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and toward morning the sea returned to its strength, as the Egyptians were fleeing toward it, and the Lord stirred the Egyptians into the sea. Shemot 14:27


+ 130 And the waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen, the entire force of Pharaoh coming after them into the sea; not even one of them survived. Shemot 14:28


+ 109 But the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the water was to them like a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:29


+ 132 On that day the Lord saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dying on the seashore. Shemot 14:30


+ 128 And Israel saw the great hand, which the Lord had used upon the Egyptians, and the people feared the Lord, and they believed in the Lord and in Moses, His servant. Shemot 14:31


+ 134 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and they spoke, saying, I will sing to the Lord, for very exalted is He; a horse and its rider He cast into the sea. Shemot 15:1


+ 126 The Eternal's strength and His vengeance were my salvation; this is my God, and I will make Him a habitation, the God of my father, and I will ascribe to Him exaltation. Shemot 15:2


+ 100 The Lord is a Master of war; the Lord is His Name. Shemot 15:3


+ 110 Pharaoh's chariots and his army He cast into the sea, and the elite of his officers sank in the Red Sea. Shemot 15:4


+ 98 The depths covered them; they descended into the depths like a stone. Shemot 15:5


+ 106 Your right hand, O Lord, is most powerful; Your right hand, O Lord, crushes the foe. Shemot 15:6


+ 131 And with Your great pride You tear down those who rise up against You; You send forth Your burning wrath; it devours them like straw. Shemot 15:7


+ 126 And with the breath of Your nostrils the waters were heaped up; the running water stood erect like a wall; the depths congealed in the heart of the sea. Shemot 15:8


+ 129 Because the enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will share the booty; my desire will be filled from them; I will draw my sword, my hand will impoverish them. Shemot 15:9


+ 118 You blew with Your wind, the sea covered them; they sank like lead in the powerful waters. Shemot 15:10


+ 132 Who is like You among the powerful, O Lord? Who is like You, powerful in the holy place? Too awesome for praises, performing wonders! Shemot 15:11


+ 120 You inclined Your right hand; the earth swallowed them up. Shemot 15:12


+ 113 With Your loving kindness You led the people You redeemed; You led them with Your might to Your holy abode. Shemot 15:13


+ 118 Peoples heard, they trembled; a shudder seized the inhabitants of Philistia. Shemot 15:14


+ 120 Then the chieftains of Edom were startled; as for the powerful men of Moab, trembling seized them; all the inhabitants of Canaan melted. Shemot 15:15


+ 133 May dread and fright fall upon them; with the arm of Your greatness may they become as still as a stone, until Your people cross over, O Lord, until this nation that You have acquired crosses over. Shemot 15:16


+ 117 You shall bring them and plant them on the mount of Your heritage, directed toward Your habitation, which You made, O Lord; the sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands founded. Shemot 15:17


+ 98 The Lord will reign to all eternity. Shemot 15:18


+ 145 When Pharaoh's horses came with his chariots and his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought the waters of the sea back upon them, and the children of Israel walked on dry land in the midst of the sea, Shemot 15:19


+ 110 Miriam, the prophetess, Aaron's sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women came out after her with timbrels and with dances. Shemot 15:20


+ 105 And Miriam called out to them, Sing to the Lord, for very exalted is He; a horse and its rider He cast into the sea. Shemot 15:21


+ 115 Moses led Israel away from the Red Sea, and they went out into the desert of Shur; they walked for three days in the desert but did not find water. Shemot 15:22


+ 116 They came to Marah, but they could not drink water from Marah because it was bitter; therefore, it was named Marah. Shemot 15:23


+ 105 The people complained against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? Shemot 15:24


+ 125 So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord instructed him concerning a piece of wood, which he cast into the water, and the water became sweet. There He gave them a statute and an ordinance, and there He tested them. Shemot 15:25


+ 155 And He said, If you hearken to the voice of the Lord, your God, and you do what is proper in His eyes, and you listen closely to His commandments and observe all His statutes, all the sicknesses that I have visited upon Egypt I will not visit upon you, for I, the Lord, heal you. Shemot 15:26


+ 119 They came to Elim, and there were twelve water fountains and seventy palms, and they encamped there by the water. Shemot 15:27


+ 134 They journeyed from Elim, and the entire community of the children of Israel came to the desert of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departure from the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:1


+ 115 The entire community of the children of Israel complained against Moses and against Aaron in the desert. Shemot 16:2


+ 151 The children of Israel said to them, If only we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by pots of meat, when we ate bread to our fill! For you have brought us out into this desert, to starve this entire congregation to death. Shemot 16:3


+ 147 So the Lord said to Moses, Behold! I am going to rain down for you bread from heaven, and the people shall go out and gather what is needed for the day, so that I can test them, whether or not they will follow My teaching. Shemot 16:4


+ 109 And it shall be on the sixth day that when they prepare what they will bring, it will be double of what they gather every day. Shemot 16:5


+ 118 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, In the evening, you shall know that the Lord brought you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:6


+ 123 And in the morning, you shall see the glory of the Lord when He hears your complaints against the Lord but of what significance are we, that you make the people complain against us? Shemot 16:7


+ 154 And Moses said, When the Lord gives you in the evening meat to eat and bread in the morning with which to become sated, when the Lord hears your complaints, which you are making the people complain against Him, but of what significance are we? Not against us are your complaints, but against the Lord. Shemot 16:8


+ 125 And Moses said to Aaron, Say to the entire community of the children of Israel, Draw near before the Lord, for He has heard your complaints. Shemot 16:9


+ 119 And it came to pass when Aaron spoke to the entire community of the children of Israel, that they turned toward the desert, and behold! the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud. Shemot 16:10


+ 105 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 16:11


+ 138 I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, In the afternoon you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be sated with bread, and you shall know that I am the Lord, your God. Shemot 16:12


+ 99 It came to pass in the evening that the quails went up and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. Shemot 16:13


+ 116 The layer of dew went up, and behold, on the surface of the desert, a fine, bare substance as fine as frost on the ground. Shemot 16:14


+ 116 When the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, It is manna, because they did not know what it was, and Moses said to them, It is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat. Shemot 16:15


+ 107 This is the thing that the Lord has commanded, Gather of it each one according to his eating capacity, an omer for each person, according to the number of persons, each one for those in his tent you shall take. Shemot 16:16


+ 119 And the children of Israel did so: they gathered, both the one who gathered much and the one who gathered little. Shemot 16:17


+ 121 And they measured it with an omer, and whoever gathered much did not have more, and whoever gathered little did not have less; each one according to his eating capacity, they gathered. Shemot 16:18


+ 95 And Moses said to them, Let no one leave over any of it until morning. Shemot 16:19


+ 111 But some men did not obey Moses and left over some of it until morning, and it bred worms and became putrid, and Moses became angry with them. Shemot 16:20


+ 92 They gathered it morning by morning, each one according to his eating capacity, and when the sun grew hot, it melted. Shemot 16:21


+ 129 It came to pass on the sixth day that they gathered a double portion of bread, two omers for each one, and all the princes of the community came and reported it to Moses. Shemot 16:22


+ 124 So he said to them, That is what the Lord spoke, Tomorrow is a rest day, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Bake whatever you wish to bake, and cook whatever you wish to cook, and all the rest leave over to keep until morning. Shemot 16:23


+ 113 So they left it over until morning, as Moses had commanded, and it did not become putrid, and not a worm was in it. Shemot 16:24


+ 106 And Moses said, Eat it today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field. Shemot 16:25


+ 145 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day which is the Sabbath on it there will be none. Shemot 16:26


+ 101 It came about that on the seventh day, some of the people went out to gather manna, but they did not find any. Shemot 16:27


+ 121 The Lord said to Moses, How long will you refuse to observe My commandments and My teachings? Shemot 16:28


+ 131 See that the Lord has given you the Sabbath. Therefore, on the sixth day, He gives you bread for two days. Let each man remain in his place; let no man leave his place on the seventh day. Shemot 16:29


+ 107 So the people rested on the seventh day. Shemot 16:30


+ 127 The house of Israel named it manna, and it was like coriander seed, it was white, and it tasted like a wafer with honey. Shemot 16:31


+ 129 Moses said, This is the thing that the Lord commanded: Let one omerful of it be preserved for your generations, in order that they see the bread that I fed you in the desert when I took you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:32


+ 112 And Moses said to Aaron, Take one jug and put there an omerful of manna, and deposit it before the Lord to be preserved for your generations. Shemot 16:33


+ 118 As the Lord had commanded Moses, Aaron deposited it before the testimony to be preserved. Shemot 16:34


+ 129 And the children of Israel ate the manna for forty years until they came to an inhabited land. They ate the manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan. Shemot 16:35


+ 93 The omer is one tenth of an ephah. Shemot 16:36


+ 135 The entire community of the children of Israel journeyed from the desert of Sin to their travels by the mandate of the Lord. They encamped in Rephidim, and there was no water for the people to drink. Shemot 17:1


+ 119 So the people quarreled with Moses, and they said, Give us water that we may drink Moses said to them, Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you test the Lord? Shemot 17:2


+ 165 The people thirsted there for water, and the people complained against Moses, and they said, Why have you brought us up from Egypt to make me and my children and my livestock die of thirst? Shemot 17:3


+ 132 Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, What shall I do for this people? Just a little longer and they will stone me! Shemot 17:4


+ 128 And the Lord said to Moses, Pass before the people and take with you some of the elders of Israel, and take into your hand your staff, with which you struck the Nile, and go. Shemot 17:5


+ 116 Behold, I shall stand there before you on the rock in Horeb, and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, and the people will drink Moses did so before the eyes of the elders of Israel. Shemot 17:6


+ 121 He named the place Massah testing and Meribah quarreling because of the quarrel of the children of Israel and because of their testing the Lord, saying, Is the Lord in our midst or not? Shemot 17:7


+ 106 Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. Shemot 17:8


+ 130 So Moses said to Joshua, Pick men for us, and go out and fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand. Shemot 17:9


+ 136 Joshua did as Moses had told him, to fight against Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur ascended to the top of the hill. Shemot 17:10


+ 127 It came to pass that when Moses would raise his hand, Israel would prevail, and when he would lay down his hand, Amalek would prevail. Shemot 17:11


+ 139 Now Moses hands were heavy; so they took a stone and placed it under him, and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one from this side, and one from that side; so he was with his hands in faith until sunset. Shemot 17:12


+ 113 Joshua weakened Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. Shemot 17:13


+ 141 The Lord said to Moses, Inscribe this as a memorial in the book, and recite it into Joshua's ears, that I will surely obliterate the remembrance of Amalek from beneath the heavens. Shemot 17:14


+ 121 Then Moses built an altar, and he named it The Lord is my miracle. Shemot 17:15


+ 128 And he said, For there is a hand on the throne of the Eternal, that there shall be a war for the Lord against Amalek from generation to generation. Shemot 17:16


+ 136 Now Moses' father in law, Jethro, the chieftain of Midian, heard all that God had done for Moses and for Israel, His people that the Lord had taken Israel out of Egypt. Shemot 18:1


+ 125 So Moses' father in law, Jethro, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after she had been sent away, Shemot 18:2


+ 118 And her two sons, one of whom was named Gershom, because he said, "I was a stranger in a foreign land," Shemot 18:3


+ 147 And one who was named Eliezer, because Moses said, "The God of my father came to my aid and rescued me from Pharaoh's sword." Shemot 18:4


+ 143 Now Moses father in law, Jethro, and his Moses sons and his wife came to Moses, to the desert where he was encamped, to the mountain of God. Shemot 18:5


+ 117 And he said to Moses, I, Jethro, your father in law, am coming to you, and so is your wife and her two sons with her. Shemot 18:6


+ 138 So Moses went out toward Jethro, prostrated himself and kissed him, and they greeted one another, and they entered the tent. Shemot 18:7


+ 124 Moses told his father in law about all that the Lord had done to Pharaoh and to the Egyptians on account of Israel, and about all the hardships that had befallen them on the way, and that the Lord had saved them. Shemot 18:8


+ 114 Jethro was happy about all the good that the Lord had done for Israel, that He had rescued them from the hands of the Egyptians. Shemot 18:9


+ 138 Thereupon, Jethro said, Blessed is the Lord, Who has rescued you from the hands of the Egyptians and from the hand of Pharaoh, Who has rescued the people from beneath the hand of the Egyptians. Shemot 18:10


+ 126 Now I know that the Lord is greater than all the deities, for with the thing that they plotted, He came upon them. Shemot 18:11


+ 140 Then Moses father in law, Jethro, sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings to God, and Aaron and all the elders of Israel came to dine with Moses father in law before God. Shemot 18:12


+ 117 It came about on the next day that Moses sat down to judge the people, and the people stood before Moses from the morning until the evening. Shemot 18:13


+ 120 When Moses father in law saw what he was doing to the people, he said, What is this thing that you are doing to the people? Why do you sit by yourself, while all the people stand before you from morning till evening? Shemot 18:14


+ 119 Moses said to his father in law, For the people come to me to seek God. Shemot 18:15


+ 95 If any of them has a case, he comes to me, and I judge between a man and his neighbor, and I make known the statutes of God and His teachings. Shemot 18:16


+ 126 Moses father in law said to him, The thing you are doing is not good. Shemot 18:17


+ 117 You will surely wear yourself out both you and these people who are with you for the matter is too heavy for you; you cannot do it alone. Shemot 18:18


+ 112 Now listen to me. I will advise you, and may the Lord be with you. You represent the people before God, and you shall bring the matters to God. Shemot 18:19


+ 122 And you shall admonish them concerning the statutes and the teachings, and you shall make known to them the way they shall go and the deeds they shall do. Shemot 18:20


+ 148 But you shall choose out of the entire nation men of substance, God fearers, men of truth, who hate monetary gain, and you shall appoint over them Israel leaders over thousands, leaders over hundreds, leaders over fifties, and leaders over tens. Shemot 18:21


+ 136 And they shall judge the people at all times, and it shall be that any major matter they shall bring to you, and they themselves shall judge every minor matter, thereby making it easier for you, and they shall bear the burden with you. Shemot 18:22


+ 121 If you do this thing, and the Lord commands you, you will be able to survive, and also, all this people will come upon their place in peace. Shemot 18:23


+ 101 Moses obeyed his father in law, and he did all that he said. Shemot 18:24


+ 125 Moses chose men of substance out of all Israel and appointed them as heads of the people, leaders of thousands, leaders of hundreds, leaders of fifties, and leaders of tens. Shemot 18:25


+ 116 And they would judge the people at all times; the difficult case they would bring to Moses, but any minor case they themselves would judge. Shemot 18:26


+ 112 Moses saw his father in law off, and he went away to his land. Shemot 18:27


+ 115 In the third month of the children of Israel's departure from Egypt, on this day they arrived in the desert of Sinai. Shemot 19:1


+ 138 They journeyed from Rephidim, and they arrived in the desert of Sinai, and they encamped in the desert, and Israel encamped there opposite the mountain. Shemot 19:2


+ 146 Moses ascended to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, So shall you say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel, Shemot 19:3


+ 120 You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles wings, and I brought you to Me. Shemot 19:4


+ 112 And now, if you obey Me and keep My covenant, you shall be to Me a treasure out of all peoples, for Mine is the entire earth. Shemot 19:5


+ 112 And you shall be to Me a kingdom of princes and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the children of Israel. Shemot 19:6


+ 126 Moses came and summoned the elders of Israel and placed before them all these words that the Lord had commanded him. Shemot 19:7


+ 132 And all the people replied in unison and said, All that the Lord has spoken we shall do! and Moses took the words of the people back to the Lord. Shemot 19:8


+ 115 And the Lord said to Moses, Behold, I am coming to you in the thickness of the cloud, in order that the people hear when I speak to you, and they will also believe in you forever. And Moses relayed the words of the people to the Lord. Shemot 19:9


+ 120 And the Lord said to Moses, Go to the people and prepare them today and tomorrow, and they shall wash their garments. Shemot 19:10


+ 103 And they shall be prepared for the third day, for on the third day, the Lord will descend before the eyes of all the people upon Mount Sinai. Shemot 19:11


+ 124 And you shall set boundaries for the people around, saying, Beware of ascending the mountain or touching its edge; whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death. Shemot 19:12


+ 133 No hand shall touch it, for he shall be stoned or cast down; whether man or beast, he shall not live. When the ram's horn sounds a long, drawn out blast, they may ascend the mountain. Shemot 19:13


+ 120 So Moses descended from the mountain to the people, and he prepared the people, and they washed their garments. Shemot 19:14


+ 112 He said to the people, Be ready for three days; do not go near a woman. Shemot 19:15


+ 123 It came to pass on the third day when it was morning, that there were thunder claps and lightning flashes, and a thick cloud was upon the mountain, and a very powerful blast of a shofar, and the entire nation that was in the camp shuddered. Shemot 19:16


+ 116 Moses brought the people out toward God from the camp, and they stood at the bottom of the mountain. Shemot 19:17


+ 123 And the entire Mount Sinai smoked because the Lord had descended upon it in fire, and its smoke ascended like the smoke of the kiln, and the entire mountain quaked violently. Shemot 19:18


+ 125 The sound of the shofar grew increasingly stronger; Moses would speak and God would answer him with a voice. Shemot 19:19


+ 107 The Lord descended upon Mount Sinai, to the peak of the mountain, and the Lord summoned Moses to the peak of the mountain, and Moses ascended. Shemot 19:20


+ 125 The Lord said to Moses, Go down, warn the people lest they break their formation to go nearer to the Lord, and many of them will fall. Shemot 19:21


+ 124 And also, the priests who go near to the Lord shall prepare themselves, lest the Lord wreak destruction upon them. Shemot 19:22


+ 133 And Moses said to the Lord, The people cannot ascend to Mount Sinai, for You warned us saying, Set boundaries for the mountain and sanctify it. Shemot 19:23


+ 142 But the Lord said to him, Go, descend, and then you shall ascend, and Aaron with you, but the priests and the populace shall not break their formation to ascend to the Lord, lest He wreak destruction upon them. Shemot 19:24


+ 101 So Moses went down to the people and said this to them. Shemot 19:25


+ 100 God spoke all these words, to respond: Shemot 20:1


+ 146 But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord, your God; you shall perform no labor, neither you, your son, your daughter, your manservant, your maidservant, your beast, nor your stranger who is in your cities. Shemot 20:10


+ 125 For in six days the Lord made the heaven and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and He rested on the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and sanctified it. Shemot 20:11


+ 116 Honor your father and your mother, in order that your days be lengthened on the land that the Lord, your God, is giving you. Shemot 20:12


+ 121 You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Shemot 20:13


+ 131 You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, his manservant, his maidservant, his ox, his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbor. Shemot 20:14


+ 127 And all the people saw the voices and the torches, the sound of the shofar, and the smoking mountain, and the people saw and trembled; so they stood from afar. Shemot 20:15


+ 123 They said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear, but let God not speak with us lest we die. Shemot 20:16


+ 148 But Moses said to the people, Fear not, for God has come in order to exalt you, and in order that His awe shall be upon your faces, so that you shall not sin. Shemot 20:17


+ 127 The people remained far off, but Moses drew near to the opaque darkness, where God was. Shemot 20:18


+ 158 The Lord said to Moses, So shall you say to the children of Israel, You have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you. Shemot 20:19


+ 151 An altar of earth you shall make for Me, and you shall slaughter beside it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your cattle. Wherever I allow My name to be mentioned, I will come to you and bless you. Shemot 20:21


+ 101 And these are the ordinances that you shall set before them. Shemot 21:1


+ 112 Should you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall work for six years, and in the seventh year, he shall go out to freedom without charge. Shemot 21:2


+ 97 If he comes in alone, he shall go out alone; if he is a married man, his wife shall go out with him. Shemot 21:3


+ 108 If his master gives him a wife, and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to her master, and he shall go out alone. Shemot 21:4


+ 132 But if the slave says, I love my master, my wife, and my children. I will not go free, Shemot 21:5


+ 110 His master shall bring him to the judges, and he shall bring him to the door or to the doorpost, and his master shall bore his ear with an awl, and he shall serve him forever. Shemot 21:6


+ 103 Now if a man sells his daughter as a maidservant, she shall not go free as the slaves go free. Shemot 21:7


+ 117 If she is displeasing to her master, who did not designate her for himself, then he shall enable her to be redeemed; he shall not rule over her to sell her to another person, when he betrays her. Shemot 21:8


+ 111 And if he designates her for his son, he shall deal with her according to the law of the daughters of Israel. Shemot 21:9


+ 109 If he takes another wife for himself, he shall not diminish her sustenance, her clothing, or her marital relations. Shemot 21:10


+ 126 And if he does not do these three things for her, she shall go free without charge, without payment of money. Shemot 21:11


+ 91 One who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:12


+ 116 But one who did not stalk him, but God brought it about into his hand, I will make a place for you to which he shall flee. Shemot 21:13


+ 113 But if a man plots deliberately against his friend to slay him with cunning, even from My altar you shall take him to die. Shemot 21:14


+ 119 And one who strikes his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:15


+ 98 And whoever kidnaps a man, and he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:16


+ 111 And one who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:17


+ 99 And if men quarrel, and one strikes the other with a stone or with a fist, and he does not die but is confined to his bed, Shemot 21:18


+ 113 If he gets up and walks about outside on his support, the assailant shall be cleared; he shall give only payment for his enforced idleness, and he shall provide for his cure. Shemot 21:19


+ 95 And should a man strike his manservant or his maidservant with a rod, and that one die under his hand, he shall surely be avenged. Shemot 21:20


+ 95 But if he survives for a day or for two days, he shall not be avenged, because he is his property. Shemot 21:21


+ 127 And should men quarrel and hit a pregnant woman, and she miscarries but there is no fatality, he shall surely be punished, when the woman's husband makes demands of him, and he shall give restitution according to the judges orders. Shemot 21:22


+ 119 But if there is a fatality, you shall give a life for a life, Shemot 21:23


+ 90 An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, a foot for a foot, Shemot 21:24


+ 106 A burn for a burn, a wound for a wound, a bruise for a bruise. Shemot 21:25


+ 120 And if a man strikes the eye of his manservant or the eye of his maidservant and destroys it, he shall set him free in return for his eye, Shemot 21:26


+ 110 And if he knocks out the tooth of his manservant or the tooth of his maidservant, he shall set him free in return for his tooth. Shemot 21:27


+ 188 And if a bull gores a man or a woman and that one dies, the bull shall surely be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten, and the owner of the bull is clear. Shemot 21:28


+ 107 But if it is a habitually goring bull since yesterday and the day before yesterday, and its owner had been warned, but he did not guard it, and it puts to death a man or a woman, the bull shall be stoned, and also its owner shall be put to death, Shemot 21:29


+ 110 Insofar as ransom shall be levied upon him, he shall give the redemption of his soul according to all that is levied upon him. Shemot 21:30


+ 133 Or if it gores a young boy or a young girl, according to this ordinance shall be done to him. Shemot 21:31


+ 115 If the bull gores a manservant or a maidservant, he shall give silver in the amount of thirty shekels to his master, and the bull shall be stoned. Shemot 21:32


+ 104 And if a person opens a pit, or if a person digs a pit and does not cover it, and a bull or a donkey falls into it, Shemot 21:33


+ 99 The owner of the pit shall pay; he shall return money to its owner, and the dead body shall be his. Shemot 21:34


+ 110 And if a man's bull strikes his friend's bull and it dies, they shall sell the live bull and divide the money received for it, and they shall also divide the dead body. Shemot 21:35


+ 113 Or if it was known that it was a habitually goring bull since yesterday and the day before yesterday, and its owner does not watch it, he shall surely pay a bull for a bull, and the dead body shall be his. Shemot 21:36


+ 121 If a man steals a bull or a lamb and slaughters it or sells it, he shall pay five cattle for the bull or four sheep for the lamb. Shemot 21:37


+ 120 If, while breaking in, the thief is discovered, and he is struck and dies, it is as if he has no blood. Shemot 22:1


+ 119 The oath of the Lord shall be between the two of them provided that he did not lay his hand upon his neighbor's property, and its owner shall accept it, and he shall not pay. Shemot 22:10


+ 120 But if it is stolen from him, he shall pay its owner. Shemot 22:11


+ 117 If it is torn apart, he shall bring witness for it; for the torn one he shall not pay. Shemot 22:12


+ 126 And if a person borrows an animal from his neighbor and it breaks a limb or dies, if its owner is not with him, he shall surely pay. Shemot 22:13


+ 106 If its owner is with him, he shall not pay; if it is a hired animal, it has come for its hire. Shemot 22:14


+ 144 If a man seduces a virgin who is not betrothed and lies with her, he shall provide her with a marriage contract as a wife. Shemot 22:15


+ 121 If her father refuses to give her to him in marriage, he shall weigh out money according to the dowry of the virgins. Shemot 22:16

+ 107 You shall not oppress any widow or orphan. Shemot 22:21


+ 101 You shall not accept a false report; do not place your hand with a wicked person to be a false witness. Shemot 23:1


+ 89 Six years you may sow your land and gather in its produce. Shemot 23:10


+ 135 But in the seventh year you shall release it and abandon it; the poor of your people shall eat it, and what they leave over, the beasts of the field shall eat. So shall you do to your vineyard and to your olive trees. Shemot 23:11


+ 122 Six days you may do your work, but on the seventh day you shall rest, in order that your ox and your donkey shall rest, and your maidservant's son and the stranger shall be refreshed. Shemot 23:12


+ 125 Concerning all that I have said to you you shall beware, and the name of the gods of others you shall not mention; it shall not be heard through your mouth. Shemot 23:13


+ 105 Three times you shall slaughter sacrifices to Me during the year. Shemot 23:14


+ 132 You shall observe the festival of unleavened bread; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread as I have commanded you, at the appointed time of the month of springtime, for then you left Egypt, and they shall not appear before Me empty handed. Shemot 23:15


+ 130 And the festival of the harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you will sow in the field, and the festival of the ingathering at the departure of the year, when you gather in the products of your labors from the field. Shemot 23:16


+ 95 Three times during the year, all your males shall appear before the Master, the Lord. Shemot 23:17


+ 122 You shall not sacrifice the blood of My sacrifice with leaven, and the fat of My festive sacrifice shall not stay overnight until morning. Shemot 23:18


+ 126 The choicest of the first fruits of your soil you shall bring to the house of the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Shemot 23:19


+ 108 Beware of him and obey him; do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your transgression, for My Name is within him. Shemot 23:21


+ 141 And I will make your boundary from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert to the river, for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hands, and you shall drive them out from before you. Shemot 23:31


+ 132 And to Moses He said, Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and prostrate yourselves from afar. Shemot 24:1


+ 121 And they perceived the God of Israel, and beneath His feet was like the forming of a sapphire brick and like the appearance of the heavens for clarity. Shemot 24:10


+ 99 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand, and they perceived God, and they ate and drank. Shemot 24:11


+ 125 And the Lord said to Moses, Come up to Me to the mountain and remain there, and I will give you the stone tablets, the Law and the commandments, which I have written to instruct them. Shemot 24:12


+ 121 So Moses and Joshua, his servant, arose, and Moses ascended to the mount of God. Shemot 24:13


+ 107 And to the elders he said, Wait for us here until we return to you, and here Aaron and Hur are with you; whoever has a case, let him go to them. Shemot 24:14


+ 107 And Moses went up to the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. Shemot 24:15


+ 116 And the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days, and He called to Moses on the seventh day from within the cloud. Shemot 24:16


+ 206 And the appearance of the glory of the Lord was like a consuming fire atop the mountain, before the eyes of the children of Israel. Shemot 24:17


+ 105 And Moses came within the cloud, and he went up to the mountain, and Moses was upon the mountain forty days and forty nights. Shemot 24:18


+ 105 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Shemot 25:1


+ 100 They shall make an ark of acacia wood, two and a half cubits its length, a cubit and a half its width, and a cubit and a half its height. Shemot 25:10


+ 119 And you shall overlay it with pure gold; from inside and from outside you shall overlay it, and you shall make upon it a golden crown all around. Shemot 25:11


+ 116 And you shall cast four golden rings for it, and you shall place them upon its four corners, two rings on its one side, and two rings on its other side. Shemot 25:12


+ 110 And you shall make poles of acacia wood and you shall overlay them with gold. Shemot 25:13


+ 104 And you shall bring the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to carry the ark with them. Shemot 25:14


+ 119 The poles of the ark shall be in the rings; they shall not be removed from it. Shemot 25:15


+ 108 And you shall place into the ark the testimony, which I will give you. Shemot 25:16


+ 124 And you shall make an ark cover of pure gold, two and a half cubits its length and a cubit and a half its width. Shemot 25:17


+ 112 And you shall make two golden cherubim; you shall make them of hammered work, from the two ends of the ark cover. Shemot 25:18


+ 110 And make one cherub from the one end and the other cherub from the other end; from the ark cover you shall make the cherubim on its two ends. Shemot 25:19


+ 101 And you shall place the ark cover on the ark from above, and into the ark you shall place the testimony, which I will give you. Shemot 25:21


+ 193 And you shall make a menorah of pure gold. The menorah shall be made of hammered work; its base and its stem, its goblets, its knobs, and its flowers shall all be one piece with it. Shemot 25:31


+ 123 And the Mishkan you shall make out of ten curtains consisting of twisted fine linen, and blue, purple, and crimson wool. A cherubim design of the work of a master weaver you shall make them. Shemot 26:1


+ 113 And you shall make fifty loops on the edge of one curtain, which is at the edge of the first set, and fifty loops on the edge of the outermost curtain of the second set. Shemot 26:10


+ 117 And you shall make fifty copper clasps; you shall bring the clasps into the loops, and you shall fasten the tent together so that it will become one. Shemot 26:11


+ 107 And the overhanging excess in the curtains of the tent half of the extra curtain shall hang over the rear of the Mishkan. Shemot 26:12


+ 111 And the cubit from here and the cubit from there of the excess in the length of the curtains of the tent shall hang over the sides of the Mishkan from here and from there to cover it. Shemot 26:13


+ 101 And you shall make a covering for the tent of ram skins dyed red and a covering of tachash skins above. Shemot 26:14


+ 109 And you shall make the planks for the Mishkan of acacia wood, upright. Shemot 26:15


+ 113 Ten cubits shall be the length of each plank, and a cubit and a half shall be the width of each plank. Shemot 26:16


+ 115 Each plank shall have two square pegs, rung like, one even with the other; so shall you make all the planks of the Mishkan. Shemot 26:17


+ 107 And you shall make the planks for the Mishkan, twenty planks for the southern side. Shemot 26:18


+ 104 And you shall make forty silver sockets under the twenty planks; two sockets under one plank for its two square pegs, and two sockets under one plank for its two square pegs. Shemot 26:19


+ 119 And their forty silver sockets: two sockets under one plank and two sockets under one plank. Shemot 26:21


+ 122 And you shall make a dividing curtain of blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen; the work of a master weaver he shall make it, in a woven cherubim design. Shemot 26:31


+ 113 And you shall make the altar of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits wide; the altar shall be square, and its height shall be three cubits. Shemot 27:1


+ 123 And its pillars shall be twenty and their sockets twenty of copper; the hooks of the pillars and their bands shall be of silver. Shemot 27:10


+ 133 And so for the northern end in the length hangings one hundred cubits long, its pillars twenty, and their sockets twenty of copper; the hooks of the pillars and their bands of silver. Shemot 27:11


+ 141 The width of the courtyard on the western side, hangings fifty cubits, their pillars ten and their sockets ten. Shemot 27:12


+ 135 The width of the courtyard on the eastern side, fifty cubits. Shemot 27:13


+ 133 The hangings on the shoulder shall be fifteen cubits, their pillars three and their sockets three. Shemot 27:14


+ 129 And on the second shoulder there shall be fifteen hangings, their pillars three and their sockets three. Shemot 27:15


+ 131 And at the gate of the courtyard shall be a screen of twenty cubits, made of blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen, the work of an embroiderer; their pillars four and their sockets four. Shemot 27:16


+ 118 All the pillars around the courtyard shall have silver bands, silver hooks, and copper sockets. Shemot 27:17


+ 141 The length of the courtyard shall be one hundred cubits and the width fifty by fifty cubits. The height of the hangings shall be five cubits of twisted fine linen, and their sockets shall be of copper. Shemot 27:18


+ 117 All the implements of the Mishkan for all its labor, and all its pegs and all the pegs of the courtyard shall be copper. Shemot 27:19


+ 118 In the Tent of Meeting, outside the dividing curtain that is in front of the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall set it up before the Lord from evening to morning; it shall be an everlasting statute for their generations, from the children of Israel. Shemot 27:21


+ 129 And you bring near to yourself your brother Aaron, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel to serve Me as kohanim: Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar, Aaron's sons. Shemot 28:1


+ 103 Six of their names on one stone and the names of the remaining six on the second stone, according to their births. Shemot 28:10


+ 135 Similar to the work of an engraver of gems, similar to the engravings of a seal, you shall engrave the two stones with the names of the sons of Israel; you shall make them enclosed in gold settings. Shemot 28:11


+ 121 And you shall put the two stones upon the shoulder straps of the ephod as stones of remembrance for the sons of Israel, and Aaron shall carry their names before the Lord upon his two shoulders as a remembrance. Shemot 28:12


+ 109 You shall make settings of gold, Shemot 28:13


+ 128 And two chains of pure gold you will make them attached to the edges, after the manner of cables, and you will place the cable chains upon the settings. Shemot 28:14


+ 130 You shall make a choshen of judgment, the work of a master weaver. You shall make it like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen shall you make it. Shemot 28:15


+ 97 It shall be square and doubled; its length one span and its width one span. Shemot 28:16


+ 109 And you shall fill into it stone fillings, four rows of stones. One row: odem, pitdah, and bareketh; thus shall the one row be. Shemot 28:17


+ 105 The second row: nofech, sappir, and yahalom. Shemot 28:18


+ 124 The third row: leshem, shevo, and achlamah. Shemot 28:19


+ 145 And the stones shall be for the names of the sons of Israel twelve, corresponding to their names; similar to the engravings of a seal, every one according to his name shall they be, for the twelve tribes. Shemot 28:21


+ 110 And you shall make the robe of the ephod completely of blue wool. Shemot 28:31


+ 131 With these you shall clothe Aaron, your brother, and his sons along with him, and you shall anoint them and invest them with full authority and sanctify them so that they may serve Me as kohanim. Shemot 28:41


+ 91 And this is the thing that you shall do for them to sanctify them to serve Me as kohanim: take one young bull and two rams, perfect ones. Shemot 29:1


+ 108 You shall bring the bull to the front of the Tent of Meeting, and Aaron and his sons shall lean their hands upon the head of the bull. Shemot 29:10


+ 105 You shall then slaughter the bull before the Lord, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 29:11


+ 106 And you shall take some of the blood of the bull and apply it on the horns of the altar with your finger, and you shall pour out all the blood upon the base of the altar. Shemot 29:12


+ 115 You shall then take all the fat that covers the innards, and the diaphragm with the liver, also the two kidneys and the fat that is upon them, and make them go up in smoke upon the altar. Shemot 29:13


+ 110 But the flesh of the bull, its hide and its dung you shall burn in fire outside the camp; it is a sin offering. Shemot 29:14


+ 102 And you shall take the one ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lean their hands upon the ram's head. Shemot 29:15


+ 104 You shall slaughter the ram, and you shall take its blood and sprinkle it on the altar all around. Shemot 29:16


+ 105 And you shall dissect the ram into its parts, and you shall wash its innards and its legs and put them with its parts and with its head, Shemot 29:17


+ 130 And you shall make the entire ram go up in smoke upon the altar; it is a burnt offering made to the Lord; it is a spirit of satisfaction, a fire offering for the Lord. Shemot 29:18


+ 117 And you shall take the second ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lean their hands upon the ram's head. Shemot 29:19


+ 120 You shall slaughter the ram, take some of its blood and put it upon the cartilage of Aaron's right ear and upon the cartilage of Aaron's sons' right ears, upon the thumbs of their right hands, and upon the big toes of their right feet, and you shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar all around. Shemot 29:21


+ 94 You shall take the ram of perfection and cook its flesh in a holy place. Shemot 29:31


+ 140 And the other lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon; you shall offer it up like the meal offering of the morning and its libation, as a spirit of satisfaction, a fire offering to the Lord. Shemot 29:41


+ 102 You shall make an altar for bringing incense up in smoke; you shall make it out of acacia wood. Shemot 30:1


+ 120 But Aaron shall make atonement upon its horns once a year; with the blood of the sin offering of the atonements, once a year he shall effect atonement upon it for your generations; it is a holy of holies to the Lord. Shemot 30:10


+ 97 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:11


+ 125 When you take the sum of the children of Israel according to their numbers, let each one give to the Lord an atonement for his soul when they are counted; then there will be no plague among them when they are counted. Shemot 30:12


+ 128 This they shall give, everyone who goes through the counting: half a shekel according to the holy shekel. Twenty gerahs equal one shekel; half of such a shekel shall be an offering to the Lord. Shemot 30:13


+ 114 Everyone who goes through the counting, from the age of twenty and upward, shall give an offering to the Lord. Shemot 30:14


+ 161 The rich shall give no more, and the poor shall give no less than half a shekel, with which to give the offering to the Lord, to atone for your souls. Shemot 30:15


+ 111 You shall take the silver of the atonements from the children of Israel and use it for the work of the Tent of Meeting; it shall be a remembrance for the children of Israel before the Lord, to atone for your souls. Shemot 30:16


+ 95 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:17


+ 111 You shall make a washstand of copper and its base of copper for washing, and you shall place it between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and you shall put water therein. Shemot 30:18


+ 91 Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and feet from it. Shemot 30:19


+ 109 They shall wash their hands and feet so that they will not die; this shall be for them a perpetual statute, for him and for his descendants, for their generations. Shemot 30:21


+ 101 And to the children of Israel you shall speak, saying: This shall be oil of holy anointment to Me for your generations. Shemot 30:31


+ 87 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 31:1


+ 84 See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, Shemot 31:2


+ 110 And I have imbued him with the spirit of God, with wisdom, with insight, with knowledge, and with talent for all manner of craftsmanship Shemot 31:3


+ 78 To do master weaving, to work with gold, with silver, and with copper, Shemot 31:4


+ 80 With the craft of stones for setting and with the craft of wood, to do every manner of work. Shemot 31:5


+ 128 And, behold, with him I have placed Oholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, and all the wise hearted into whose hearts I have instilled wisdom, and they shall make everything I have commanded you: Shemot 31:6


+ 91 The Tent of Meeting and the ark for the testimony, as well as the cover that shall be upon it, all the implements of the tent, Shemot 31:7


+ 73 The table and its implements, the pure menorah and all its implements, the altar of incense, Shemot 31:8


+ 89 The altar for the burnt offering and all its implements, the washstand and its base, Shemot 31:9


+ 77 The meshwork garments, the holy garments for Aaron the kohen, the garments of his sons in which to serve as kohanim, Shemot 31:10


+ 83 The anointing oil and the incense for the Holy; in complete accordance with everything I have commanded you they shall do. Shemot 31:11


+ 92 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 31:12


+ 111 And you, speak to the children of Israel and say: Only keep My Sabbaths! For it is a sign between Me and you for your generations, to know that I, the Lord, make you holy. Shemot 31:13


+ 93 Therefore, keep the Sabbath, for it is a sacred thing for you. Those who desecrate it shall be put to death, for whoever performs work on it, that soul will be cut off from the midst of its people. Shemot 31:14


+ 117 Six days work may be done, but on the seventh day is a Sabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord; whoever performs work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death. Shemot 31:15


+ 71 Thus shall the children of Israel observe the Sabbath, to make the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. Shemot 31:16


+ 107 Between Me and the children of Israel, it is forever a sign that in six days The Lord created the heaven and the earth, and on the seventh day He ceased and rested. Shemot 31:17


+ 99 When He had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Moses the two tablets of the testimony, stone tablets, written with the finger of God. Shemot 31:18


+ 137 When the people saw that Moses was late in coming down from the mountain, the people gathered against Aaron, and they said to him: Come on! Make us gods that will go before us, because this man Moses, who brought us up from the land of Egypt we don't know what has become of him. Shemot 32:1


+ 94 Now leave Me alone, and My anger will be kindled against them so that I will annihilate them, and I will make you into a great nation. Shemot 32:10


+ 156 Moses pleaded before the Lord, his God, and said: Why, O Lord, should Your anger be kindled against Your people whom You have brought up from the land of Egypt with great power and with a strong hand? Shemot 32:11


+ 113 Why should the Egyptians say: He brought them out with evil intent to kill them in the mountains and to annihilate them from upon the face of the earth? Retreat from the heat of Your anger and reconsider the evil intended for Your people. Shemot 32:12


+ 132 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your very Self, and to whom You said: I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and all this land which I said that I would give to your seed, they shall keep it as their possession forever. Shemot 32:13


+ 82 The Lord then reconsidered the evil He had said He would do to His people. Shemot 32:14


+ 130 Now Moses turned and went down from the mountain bearing the two tablets of the testimony in his hand, tablets inscribed from both their sides; on one side and on the other side they were inscribed. Shemot 32:15


+ 81 Now the tablets were God's work, and the inscription was God's inscription, engraved on the tablets. Shemot 32:16


+ 96 When Joshua heard the voice of the people in their shouting, he said to Moses: There is a voice of battle in the camp! Shemot 32:17


+ 116 But Moses said: It is neither a voice shouting victory, nor a voice shouting defeat; a voice of blasphemy I hear. Shemot 32:18


+ 124 Now it came to pass when he drew closer to the camp and saw the calf and the dances, that Moses anger was kindled, and he flung the tablets from his hands, shattering them at the foot of the mountain. Shemot 32:19


+ 100 Moses said to Aaron: What did this people do to you that you brought such a grave sin upon them? Shemot 32:21


+ 130 And Moses returned to the Lord and said: Please! This people has committed a grave sin. They have made themselves a god of gold. Shemot 32:31


+ 127 The Lord spoke to Moses: Go, ascend from here, you and the people you have brought up from the land of Egypt, to the land that I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying: I will give it to your descendants. Shemot 33:1


+ 81 When all the people would see the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance of the tent, all the people would rise and prostrate themselves, each one at the entrance of his tent. Shemot 33:10


+ 124 Then the Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as a man would speak to his companion, and he would return to the camp, but his attendant, Joshua, the son of Nun, a lad, would not depart from the tent. Shemot 33:11


+ 126 Moses said to the Lord: Look, You say to me: Bring this people up! But You have not informed me whom You will send with me. And You said: I have known you by name and you have also found favor in My eyes. Shemot 33:12


+ 111 And now, if I have indeed found favor in Your eyes, pray let me know Your ways, so that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your eyes; and consider that this nation is Your people. Shemot 33:13


+ 72 So He said, My Presence will go, and I will give you rest. Shemot 33:14


+ 74 And he said to Him, If Your Presence does not go with us, do not take us up from here. Shemot 33:15


+ 106 For how then will it be known that I have found favor in Your eyes, I and Your people? Is it not in that You will go with us? Then I and Your people will be distinguished from every other nation on the face of the earth. Shemot 33:16


+ 104 And the Lord said to Moses: Even this thing that you have spoken, I will do, for you have found favor in My eyes, and I have known you by name. Shemot 33:17


+ 66 And he said: Show me, now, Your glory! Shemot 33:18


+ 90 He said: I will let all My goodness pass before you; I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you, and I will favor when I wish to favor, and I will have compassion when I wish to have compassion. Shemot 33:19


+ 80 And the Lord said: Behold, there is a place with Me, and you shall stand on the rock. Shemot 33:21


+ 117 And the Lord said to Moses: Hew for yourself two stone tablets like the first ones. And I will inscribe upon the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. Shemot 34:1


+ 128 And He said: Behold! I will form a covenant; in the presence of all your people, I will make distinctions such as have not been created upon all the earth and among all the nations, and all the people in whose midst you are shall see the work of the Lord how awe inspiring it is that which I will perform with you. Shemot 34:10


+ 111 Keep carefully what I am commanding you today: Lo! I will drive out from before you the Amorites and the Canaanites, the Hittites and the Perizzites, the Hivvites and the Jebusites. Shemot 34:11


+ 88 Beware lest you form a covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are coming, lest it become a snare in your midst. Shemot 34:12


+ 80 But you shall demolish their altars, shatter their monuments, and cut down their sacred trees. Shemot 34:13


+ 92 For you shall not prostrate yourself before another god, because the Lord, Whose Name is Jealous One, is a jealous God. Shemot 34:14


+ 101 Lest you form a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go astray after their gods, and they offer sacrifices to their gods, and they invite you, and you eat of their slaughtering, Shemot 34:15


+ 82 And you take of their daughters for your sons; then their daughters will go astray after their gods and lead your sons astray after their gods. Shemot 34:16


+ 73 You shall not make molten gods for yourself. Shemot 34:17


+ 138 The Festival of Unleavened Cakes you shall keep; seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes which I have commanded you, at the appointed meeting time of the month of spring, for in the month of spring you went out of Egypt. Shemot 34:18


+ 103 All that opens the womb is Mine, and all your livestock that bears a male, by the emergence of ox or lamb. Shemot 34:19


+ 85 Six days you may work, and on the seventh day you shall rest; in plowing and in harvest you shall rest. Shemot 34:21


+ 84 But Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the princes of the community returned to him, and Moses would speak to them. Shemot 34:31


+ 114 Moses called the whole community of the children of Israel to assemble, and he said to them: These are the things that the Lord commanded to make. Shemot 35:1


+ 71 And every wise hearted person among you shall come and make everything that the Lord has commanded: Shemot 35:10


+ 73 The Mishkan, its tent and its cover, its clasps and its planks, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets; Shemot 35:11


+ 74 The ark and its poles, the ark cover and the screening dividing curtain; Shemot 35:12


+ 74 The table and its poles and all its implements, and the showbread; Shemot 35:13


+ 85 And the menorah for lighting and its implements and its lamps, and the oil for lighting; Shemot 35:14


+ 80 And the altar for incense and its poles, and the anointing oil and the incense and the screen of the entrance for the entrance of the Mishkan; Shemot 35:15


+ 78 The altar for the burnt offering, its copper grating, its poles and all its implements, the washstand and its base; Shemot 35:16


+ 97 The hangings of the courtyard, its pillars, and its sockets, and the screen of the gate of the courtyard; Shemot 35:17


+ 71 The pegs of the Mishkan and the pegs of the courtyard, and their ropes; Shemot 35:18


+ 87 The meshwork garments to serve in the Holy, the holy garments for Aaron the Kohen Gadol, and the garments of his sons in which to serve as kohanim. Shemot 35:19


+ 110 Every man whose heart uplifted him came, and everyone whose spirit inspired him to generosity brought the offering of the Lord for the work of the Tent of Meeting, for all its service, and for the holy garments. Shemot 35:21


+ 98 Bezalel and Oholiab and every wise hearted man into whom God had imbued wisdom and insight to know how to do, shall do all the work of the service of the Holy, according to all that the Lord has commanded. Shemot 36:1


+ 67 And he joined five of these curtains to one another, and the other five curtains he also joined to one another. Shemot 36:10


+ 85 And he made loops of blue wool on the edge of one curtain that is at the edge of the first set, and he did the same on the edge of the outermost curtain of the second set. Shemot 36:11


+ 88 He made fifty loops on the edge of one curtain, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain in the second set; the loops corresponded to one another. Shemot 36:12


+ 80 And he made fifty golden clasps, and he fastened the curtains to one another with the clasps; so the Mishkan became one. Shemot 36:13


+ 72 And then he made curtains of goat hair for a tent over the Mishkan; he made them eleven curtains. Shemot 36:14


+ 82 The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and the width of one curtain was four cubits; the same measure for the eleven curtains. Shemot 36:15


+ 84 And he joined the five curtains by themselves, and the other six curtains by themselves. Shemot 36:16


+ 76 And he made fifty loops on the edge of the outermost curtain of the first set, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the outermost curtain of the second set. Shemot 36:17


+ 78 And he made fifty copper clasps to fasten the tent together so that it became one. Shemot 36:18


+ 69 And he made a covering for the tent, of ram skins dyed red and a covering of tachash skins above. Shemot 36:19


+ 75 Ten cubits was the length of each plank, and a cubit and a half was the width of each plank. Shemot 36:21


+ 83 And he made bars of acacia wood, five for the planks of one side of the Mishkan, Shemot 36:31


+ 72 Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood, two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high. Shemot 37:1


+ 68 And he made a table of acacia wood two cubits long, one cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high. Shemot 37:10


+ 85 He overlaid it with pure gold, and he made for it a golden crown all around. Shemot 37:11


+ 102 And he made for it a frame a handbreadth wide all around, and he made a golden crown for its frame all around. Shemot 37:12


+ 84 And he cast for it four golden rings, and he placed the rings on the four corners that are on its four legs. Shemot 37:13


+ 78 The rings were opposite the frame as holders for the poles with which to carry the table. Shemot 37:14


+ 75 And he made the poles of acacia wood, and he overlaid them with gold, to carry the table. Shemot 37:15


+ 97 And he made the implements that are on the table: its forms, its spoons, its half pipes, and its supports with which it will be covered of pure gold. Shemot 37:16


+ 102 And he made the menorah of pure gold; of hammered work he made the menorah, its base and its stem, its goblets, its knobs, and its flowers were all one piece with it. Shemot 37:17


+ 82 And six branches coming out of its sides: three menorah branches from its one side and three menorah branches from its second side. Shemot 37:18


+ 92 Three decorated goblets on one branch, a knob and a flower, and three decorated goblets on one branch, a knob and a flower; so for the six branches that come out of the menorah. Shemot 37:19


+ 72 And a knob under the two branches from it, and a knob under the two branches from it, and a knob under the two branches from it; so for the six branches that come out of it. Shemot 37:21


+ 79 And he made the altar for the burnt offerings of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits wide; the altar was square, and it was three cubits high. Shemot 38:1


+ 77 And their pillars were twenty and their sockets twenty of copper; the hooks of the pillars and their bands of silver. Shemot 38:10


+ 85 And for the northern end one hundred cubits, their pillars twenty, and their sockets twenty of copper; the hooks of the pillars and their bands of silver. Shemot 38:11


+ 95 And for the western side, hangings fifty cubits, their pillars ten and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars and their bands of silver. Shemot 38:12


+ 66 And for the eastern end, fifty cubits. Shemot 38:13


+ 82 The hangings on the shoulder were fifteen cubits, their pillars three and their sockets three. Shemot 38:14


+ 88 And on the second shoulder on either side of the gate of the courtyard, there were hangings of fifteen cubits, their pillars three and their sockets three. Shemot 38:15


+ 74 All the hangings of the courtyard all around were of twisted fine linen. Shemot 38:16


+ 96 And the sockets for the pillars were copper; the hooks of the pillars and their bands were silver, and the overlay of their tops was silver, and they were banded with silver, all the pillars of the courtyard. Shemot 38:17


+ 93 And the screen of the gate of the courtyard was the work of an embroiderer, made of blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen, twenty cubits long, and its height in the width was five cubits, corresponding to the hangings of the courtyard. Shemot 38:18


+ 85 And their pillars were four and their sockets four, of copper, their hooks silver, and the overlay of their tops and their bands were silver. Shemot 38:19


+ 111 These are the numbers of the Mishkan, the Mishkan of the Testimony, which were counted at Moses' command; this was the work of the Levites under the direction of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the Kohen. Shemot 38:21


+ 77 And the sockets of the courtyard all around and the sockets of the gate to the courtyard, all the pegs of the Mishkan and all the pegs of the courtyard all around. Shemot 38:31


+ 100 And out of the blue, purple, and crimson wool they made the meshwork garments to serve in the Holy, and they made Aaron's holy garments, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:1


+ 77 And they filled into it four rows of stones. One row: odem, pitdah, and bareketh, the one row. Shemot 39:10


+ 58 And the second row: nofech, sappir, and yahalom. Shemot 39:11


+ 75 And the third row: leshem, shevo, and achlamah. Shemot 39:12


+ 107 And the fourth row: tarshish, shoham, and yashpheh; enclosed in gold settings in their fillings. Shemot 39:13


+ 108 And the stones were for the names of the sons of Israel twelve, corresponding to their names; similar to the engravings of a seal, every one according to his name, for the twelve tribes. Shemot 39:14


+ 90 For the choshen they made chains at the edges, of cable work, of pure gold. Shemot 39:15


+ 79 They made two golden settings and two golden rings, and they placed the two rings on the two ends of the choshen. Shemot 39:16


+ 73 And they placed the two golden cables on the two rings, at the ends of the choshen. Shemot 39:17


+ 94 And the two ends of the two cables they placed upon the two settings, and they placed them upon the shoulder straps of the ephod, on its front part. Shemot 39:18


+ 80 And they made two golden rings and placed them on the two ends of the choshen, on its edge that faced the inner side of the ephod. Shemot 39:19


+ 87 And they fastened the choshen by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a cord of blue wool, so that it could be upon the band of the ephod, so that the choshen would not move off the ephod, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:21


+ 94 And they placed upon it a cord of blue wool to place over the cap, from above as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:31


+ 96 The meshwork garments for the service in the Holy, the holy garments for Aaron the Kohen Gadol and his sons garments for serving as kohanim. Shemot 39:41


+ 81 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 40:1


+ 70 You shall anoint the altar for the burnt offering and all its implements; you shall sanctify the altar; thus the altar will become a holy of holies. Shemot 40:10


+ 70 You shall anoint the washstand and its base and sanctify it. Shemot 40:11


+ 77 And you shall bring Aaron and his sons near the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and you shall bathe them in water. Shemot 40:12


+ 81 And you shall clothe Aaron with the holy garments, and you shall anoint him and sanctify him so that he may serve Me as a kohen. Shemot 40:13


+ 81 And you shall bring his sons near and clothe them with tunics. Shemot 40:14


+ 114 And you shall anoint them, as you have anointed their father, so that they may serve Me as kohanim. And this shall be so that their anointment shall remain for them an everlasting kehunah throughout their generations. Shemot 40:15


+ 74 Thus Moses did; according to all that the Lord had commanded him, so he did. Shemot 40:16


+ 75 It came to pass in the first month, in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the Mishkan was set up. Shemot 40:17


+ 101 Moses set up the Mishkan, placed its sockets, put up its planks, put in its bars, and set up its pillars. Shemot 40:18


+ 88 He spread the tent over the Mishkan, and he placed the cover of the tent over it from above, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:19


+ 107 He brought the ark into the Mishkan and placed the screening dividing curtain so that it formed a protective covering before the Ark of the Testimony as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:21


+ 78 He placed the table in the Tent of Meeting on the northern side of the Mishkan, outside the dividing curtain. Shemot 40:21


+ 84 And Moses, Aaron, and his sons would wash their hands and their feet from it. Shemot 40:31


+ 133 And He called to Moses, and the Lord spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, saying, Vayikra 1:1


+ 138 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When a man from among you brings a sacrifice to the Lord; from animals, from cattle or from the flock you shall bring your sacrifice. Vayikra 1:2


+ 114 If his sacrifice is a burnt offering from cattle, an unblemished male he shall bring it. He shall bring it willingly to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, before the Lord. Vayikra 1:3


+ 111 And he shall lean his hand forcefully upon the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted for him to atone for him. Vayikra 1:4


+ 122 And he shall slaughter the young bull before the Lord. And Aaron's descendants, the kohanim, shall bring the blood, and dash the blood upon the altar, around the altar which is at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 1:5


+ 106 And he shall skin the burnt offering, and cut it into its prescribed sections. Vayikra 1:6


+ 117 And the descendants of Aaron the kohen shall place fire on the altar, and arrange wood on the fire. Vayikra 1:7


+ 106 And Aaron's descendants, the kohanim, shall then arrange the pieces, the head and the fat, on top of the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar. Vayikra 1:8


+ 125 And its innards and its legs, he shall wash with water. Then, the kohen shall cause to go up in smoke all of the animal on the altar, as a burnt offering, a fire offering, with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 1:9


+ 118 And if his offering is brought from the flock from sheep or from goats as a burnt offering he shall sacrifice it an unblemished male. Vayikra 1:10


+ 114 And he shall slaughter it on the northern side of the altar, before the Lord. And Aaron's descendants, the kohanim, shall dash its blood upon the altar, around. Vayikra 1:11


+ 107 And he shall cut it into its prescribed sections, with its head and its fat, and the kohen shall arrange them on top of the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar. Vayikra 1:12


+ 156 And the innards and the legs, he shall wash with water. Then, the kohen shall offer up all of the animal, and cause it to go up in smoke on the altar. It is a burnt offering, a fire offering with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 1:13


+ 105 And if his sacrifice to the Lord, is a burnt offering from birds, he shall bring it from turtle doves or from young doves. Vayikra 1:14


+ 106 And the kohen shall bring it near to the altar, and nip off its head, and cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, and its the bird's blood shall be pressed out upon the wall of the altar. Vayikra 1:15


+ 125 And he shall remove its crop along with its entrails, and cast it next to the altar on the east side, to the place of the ashes. Vayikra 1:16


+ 213 And he shall split it open with its wing feathers intact, but he shall not tear it completely apart. The kohen shall then cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, on top of the wood which is on the fire. It is a burnt offering, a fire offering with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 1:17


+ 116 And if a person brings a meal offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour. He shall pour oil over it and place frankincense upon it. Vayikra 2:1


+ 181 And what remains of the meal offering shall belong to Aaron and his descendants; it is holy of holies from the fire offerings of the Lord. Vayikra 2:10


+ 125 No meal offering that you sacrifice to the Lord shall be made out of anything leavened. For you shall not cause to go up in smoke any leavening or any honey, as a fire offering to the Lord; Vayikra 2:11


+ 130 However, you shall bring them as a first fruit offering to the Lord; nevertheless, they shall not go up on the altar as a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 2:12


+ 129 And you shall salt every one of your meal offering sacrifices with salt, and you shall not omit the salt of your God's covenant from being placed upon your meal offerings. You shall offer salt on all your sacrifices. Vayikra 2:13


+ 139 When you bring a meal offering of the first grains to the Lord, you shall bring your first grain meal offering from barley, as soon as it ripens, parched over the fire, kernels full in their husks, ground into coarse meal. Vayikra 2:14


+ 116 And you shall put oil on it, and place frankincense upon it. It is a meal offering. Vayikra 2:15


+ 122 Then, the kohen shall cause its reminder to go up in smoke, taken from its coarse meal and from its oil, with all its frankincense; it is a fire offering to the Lord. Vayikra 2:16


+ 121 If his sacrifice is a peace offering, if he brings it from cattle, whether male or female, unblemished he shall bring it before the Lord. Vayikra 3:1


+ 96 And the two kidneys along with the fat that is upon them, which is over the flanks. And he shall remove the diaphragm with the liver, along with the kidneys. Vayikra 3:10


+ 100 And the kohen shall cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, as food for the fire, to the Lord. Vayikra 3:11


+ 96 And if his sacrifice is a goat, he shall bring it before the Lord, Vayikra 3:12


+ 119 And he shall lean his hand forcefully upon its head and slaughter it before the Tent of Meeting, and Aaron's descendants shall dash its blood upon the altar, around. Vayikra 3:13


+ 114 And from it, he shall bring his offering a fire offering to the Lord comprised of the fat covering the innards, and all the fat which is on the innards, Vayikra 3:14


+ 93 And the two kidneys with the fat that is upon them, which is over the flanks. And he shall remove the diaphragm with the liver; along with the kidneys he shall remove it. Vayikra 3:15


+ 203 And the kohen shall cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, consumed as a fire offering, with a pleasing fragrance. All sacrificial fat belongs to the Lord. Vayikra 3:16


+ 93 This is an eternal statute for all your generations, in all your dwelling places: You shall not eat any fat or any blood. Vayikra 3:17


+ 86 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 4:1


+ 101 Just as was separated from the bull sacrificed as a peace offering, the kohen shall then cause them to go up in smoke on the altar used for burnt offerings. Vayikra 4:10


+ 115 He shall then take the bull's skin and all of its flesh, along with its head and along with its legs, its innards and its waste matter. Vayikra 4:11


+ 111 He shall take out the entire bull to a clean place outside the camp, namely, to the ash depository, and he shall burn it in fire on wood. Thus, it shall be burnt in the ash depository. Vayikra 4:12


+ 116 And if the entire community of Israel errs because a matter was hidden from the eyes of the congregation, and they commit one of all the commandments of the Lord, which may not be committed, incurring guilt; Vayikra 4:13


+ 106 When the sin which they had committed becomes known, the congregation shall bring a young bull as a sin offering. They shall bring it before the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 4:14


+ 104 The elders of the community shall lean their hands forcefully upon the bull's head, before the Lord, and one shall slaughter the bull before the Lord. Vayikra 4:15


+ 92 The anointed kohen shall bring some of the bull's blood into the Tent of Meeting, Vayikra 4:16


+ 81 And the kohen shall dip his finger from the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the Lord, before the dividing curtain. Vayikra 4:17


+ 102 And he shall then place some of the blood on the horns of the altar that is before the Lord in the Tent of Meeting. And then he shall pour all the blood onto the base of the altar used for burnt offerings, which is at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 4:18


+ 81 And he shall separate all its fat from it and cause it to go up in smoke on the altar. Vayikra 4:19


+ 93 And he shall take the bull outside the camp and burn it, just as he burned the first bull. It is a sin offering for the congregation. Vayikra 4:21


+ 131 And he shall remove all of its fat, just as the fat was removed from the peace offering. The kohen shall then cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, as a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Thus the kohen shall make atonement for him, and he will be forgiven. Vayikra 4:31


+ 106 If a person sins, whereby he accepts an oath, and he is a witness to some matter by seeing or knowing it, yet he does not testify, he shall bear his transgression; Vayikra 5:1


+ 90 And he shall offer up the second one as a burnt offering, according to the law. Thus the kohen shall make atonement for him, from his sin which he had committed, and he shall be forgiven. Vayikra 5:10


+ 97 But if he cannot afford two turtle doves or two young doves, then he shall bring as his sacrifice for his sin one tenth of an ephah of fine flour for a sin offering. He shall not put oil over it, nor shall he place frankincense upon it, for it is a sin offering. Vayikra 5:11


+ 115 He shall bring it to the kohen, and the kohen shall scoop out a fistful as its reminder, and cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, upon the fires of the Lord. It is a sin offering. Vayikra 5:12


+ 103 Thus the kohen shall make atonement for his sin that he committed in any one of these cases, and he shall be forgiven. And it shall belong to the kohen like the meal offering. Vayikra 5:13


+ 94 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 5:14


+ 120 If a person commits a betrayal and trespasses unintentionally against one of the things sacred to the Lord, he shall bring as his guilt offering to the Lord an unblemished ram from the flock with a value of silver shekels, in accordance with the shekel of the Sanctuary for a guilt offering. Vayikra 5:15


+ 110 And what he has trespassed against the holy thing he shall pay, and he shall add one fifth of its value to it, and he shall give it to the kohen. The kohen shall then make atonement for him through the ram of the guilt offering, and he shall be forgiven. Vayikra 5:16


+ 94 If a person sins and commits one of the commandments of the Lord which may not be committed, but he does not know, he is guilty, and he shall bear his transgression. Vayikra 5:17


+ 116 He shall bring an unblemished ram from the flock, with the value for a guilt offering, to the kohen. The kohen shall then make atonement for his unintentional sin which he committed and did not know, and he shall be forgiven. Vayikra 5:18


+ 83 It is a guilt offering he has incurred guilt before the Lord. Vayikra 5:19


+ 116 If a person sins, betraying the Lord by falsely denying to his fellow concerning a deposit, or money given in hand, or an object taken by robbery, or he withheld funds from his fellow, Vayikra 5:21


+ 84 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 6:1


+ 103 It shall not be baked leavened. As their portion, I have given it to them from My fire offerings. It is a holy of holies, like the sin offering and like the guilt offering. Vayikra 6:10


+ 122 Any male among Aaron's sons may eat it. This is an eternal statute for your generations from the fire offerings of the Lord. Anything that touches them shall become holy. Vayikra 6:11


+ 100 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 6:12


+ 117 This is the offering of Aaron and his sons, which they shall offer to the Lord, on the day when one of them is anointed: One tenth of an ephah of fine flour for a perpetual meal offering, half of it in the morning and half of it in the evening. Vayikra 6:13


+ 118 It shall be made with oil on a shallow pan, after bringing it scalded and repeatedly baked; you shall offer a meal offering of broken pieces, with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 6:14


+ 121 And the kohen who is anointed instead of him from among his sons, shall prepare it; this is an eternal statute; it shall be completely burnt to the Lord. Vayikra 6:15


+ 96 Every meal offering of a kohen shall be completely burnt; it shall not be eaten. Vayikra 6:16


+ 96 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 6:17


+ 114 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin offering: The sin offering shall be slaughtered before the Lord in the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered. It is a holy of holies. Vayikra 6:18


+ 100 The kohen who offers it up as a sin offering shall eat it; it shall be eaten in a holy place, in the courtyard of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 6:19


+ 117 An earthenware vessel in which it is cooked shall be broken, but if it is cooked in a copper vessel, it shall be purged and rinsed with water. Vayikra 6:21


+ 90 And this is the law of the guilt offering. It is a holy of holies. Vayikra 7:1


+ 88 And any meal offering mixed with oil or dry, shall belong to all the sons of Aaron, one like the other. Vayikra 7:10


+ 87 And this is the law of the peace offering, which he shall bring to the Lord. Vayikra 7:11


+ 104 If he is bringing it as a thanksgiving offering, he shall offer, along with the thanksgiving offering unleavened loaves mixed with oil, unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and scalded flour mixed with oil. Vayikra 7:12


+ 103 Along with loaves of leavened bread, he shall bring his offering along with his thanksgiving peace offering. Vayikra 7:13


+ 181 And he shall bring from it one out of each offering, as a separation for the Lord; the kohen who dashes the blood of the peace offering it shall be his. Vayikra 7:14


+ 91 And the flesh of his thanksgiving peace offering shall be eaten on the day it is offered up; he shall not leave any of it over until morning. Vayikra 7:15


+ 83 But if his sacrifice is a vow or a voluntary donation, on the day he offers up his sacrifice it may be eaten, and on the next day, whatever is left over from it, may be eaten. Vayikra 7:16


+ 83 However, whatever is left over from the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day, shall be burnt in fire. Vayikra 7:17


+ 103 And if any of the flesh of his peace offering is to be eaten on the third day, it shall not be accepted; it shall not count for the one who offers it; rather, it shall be rejected, and the person who eats of it shall bear his sin. Vayikra 7:18


+ 106 And the flesh that touches anything unclean shall not be eaten. It shall be burned in fire. But regarding the flesh, anyone who is clean may eat the flesh. Vayikra 7:19


+ 128 And a person who touches anything unclean, whether uncleanness from a human or an unclean animal carcass or any unclean carcass of an abominable creature, and then eats of the flesh of a peace offering to the Lord, that soul shall be cut off from its people. Vayikra 7:21


+ 92 And the kohen shall cause the fat to go up in smoke on the altar, and the breast shall belong to Aaron and his sons. Vayikra 7:31


+ 86 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 8:1


+ 91 And Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the Sanctuary and everything in it and sanctified them. Vayikra 8:10


+ 106 And he sprinkled from it upon the altar seven times, and he anointed the altar and all its vessels and the washstand and its base, to sanctify them. Vayikra 8:11


+ 109 And he poured some of the anointing oil upon Aaron's head, and he anointed him to sanctify him. Vayikra 8:12


+ 112 And Moses brought Aaron's sons forward and clothed them with tunics, girded them with sashes, and bound them up with high hats, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 8:13


+ 111 And he brought the sin offering bull close, and Aaron and his sons leaned their hands forcefully upon the head of the sin offering bull. Vayikra 8:14


+ 117 And he slaughtered it, and Moses took the blood, and placed it on the horns of the altar, around, with his finger, and he purified the altar. And he poured the blood at the base of the altar, and sanctified it, to effect atonement upon it. Vayikra 8:15


+ 100 And he took all the fat which was on the innards, and the diaphragm with the liver, and the two kidneys together with their fat. And Moses caused them to go up in smoke on the altar. Vayikra 8:16


+ 104 And the bull, its hide, its flesh, and its waste, he burned with fire outside the camp, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 8:17


+ 97 And he brought near the burnt offering ram, and Aaron and his sons leaned their hands forcefully upon the head of the ram. Vayikra 8:18


+ 87 And he slaughtered it, and Moses dashed the blood on the altar, around. Vayikra 8:19


+ 112 But the innards and the legs, he washed in water, and Moses made the entire ram go up in smoke on the altar. It was a burnt offering with a pleasing fragrance, a fire offering to the Lord, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 8:21


+ 107 And Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, Cook the flesh at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting and eat it there, and the bread that is in the basket of the investiture offerings, as I have commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it. Vayikra 8:31


+ 100 And it was on the eighth day, that Moses summoned Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel. Vayikra 9:1


+ 106 And the fat, the kidneys, and the diaphragm with the liver from the sin offering, he caused to go up in smoke on the altar, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 9:10


+ 81 And he burned the flesh and the hide in fire, outside the camp. Vayikra 9:11


+ 104 And he slaughtered the burnt offering. And Aaron's sons presented the blood to him, and he dashed it on the altar, around. Vayikra 9:12


+ 96 And they presented the burnt offering to him in its prescribed pieces, along with the head. And he caused them to go up in smoke on the altar. Vayikra 9:13


+ 90 And he washed the innards and the legs, and he caused them to go up in smoke on the altar, along with the burnt offering. Vayikra 9:14


+ 109 And he brought forward the people's sacrifice; he took the people's sin offering goat, slaughtered it, and made it a sin offering, like the first one. Vayikra 9:15


+ 90 And he brought forward the burnt offering and prepared it according to the law. Vayikra 9:16


+ 89 And he brought forward the meal offering, filled his palm with it, and caused it to go up in smoke on the altar, in addition to the morning burnt offering. Vayikra 9:17


+ 95 And he slaughtered the ox and the ram, the people's peace offering, and Aaron's sons presented the blood to him, and he dashed it on the altar, around, Vayikra 9:18


+ 94 And they also presented the fats from the ox and from the ram: the tail, the fatty covering, the kidneys and the diaphragm with the liver. Vayikra 9:19


+ 106 And Aaron had already waved the breasts and the right thigh as a wave offering before the Lord, as Moses had commanded. Vayikra 9:21


+ 96 And Aaron's sons, Nadab and Abihu, each took his pan, put fire in them, and placed incense upon it, and they brought before the Lord foreign fire, which He had not commanded them. Vayikra 10:1


+ 88 And fire went forth from before the Lord and consumed them, and they died before the Lord. Vayikra 10:2


+ 111 Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the Lord spoke, when He said, I will be sanctified through those near to Me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron was silent. Vayikra 10:3


+ 120 And Moses summoned Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Aaron's uncle Uzziel, and said to them, Draw near; carry your kinsmen from within the Sanctuary, to the outside of the camp. Vayikra 10:4


+ 101 So they approached and carried them with their tunics to the outside of the camp, as Moses had spoken. Vayikra 10:5


+ 121 And Moses said to Aaron and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons, Do not leave your heads unshorn, and do not rend your garments, so that you shall not die, and lest He be angry with the entire community, but your brothers, the entire house of Israel, shall bewail the conflagration that the Lord has burned. Vayikra 10:6


+ 99 And do not go out of the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, lest you die, because the Lord's anointing oil is upon you. And they did according to Moses order. Vayikra 10:7


+ 90 And the Lord spoke to Aaron, saying, Vayikra 10:8


+ 102 Do not drink wine that will lead to intoxication, neither you nor your sons with you, when you go into the Tent of Meeting, so that you shall not die. This is an eternal statute for your generations, Vayikra 10:9


+ 147 To distinguish between holy and profane and between unclean and clean, Vayikra 10:10


+ 94 And to instruct the children of Israel regarding all the statutes which the Lord has spoken to them through Moses. Vayikra 10:11


+ 121 And Moses spoke to Aaron and his surviving sons, Eleazar and Ithamar, Take the meal offering that is left over from the Lord's fire offerings, and eat it as unleavened loaves beside the altar, for it is a holy of holies; Vayikra 10:12


+ 103 You shall eat it in a holy place because it is your portion and your sons' portion from the Lord's fire offerings, for so I have been commanded. Vayikra 10:13


+ 122 The breast of the waving and the thigh of the raising up you shall eat in a clean place, you and your sons and your daughters with you, for as your portion and your sons' portion they have been given, from the peace offerings of the children of Israel. Vayikra 10:14


+ 98 They shall bring the thigh of the raising up and the breast of the waving upon the fats for fire offerings, to wave as a waving before the Lord. And it shall belong to you and to your sons with you as an eternal due, as the Lord has commanded. Vayikra 10:15


+ 154 And Moses thoroughly investigated concerning the sin offering he goat, and behold, it had been burnt! So he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's surviving sons, saying, Vayikra 10:16


+ 89 Why did you not eat the sin offering in the holy place? For it is holy of holies, and He has given it to you to gain forgiveness for the sin of the community, to effect their atonement before the Lord! Vayikra 10:17


+ 102 Behold, its blood was not brought into the Sanctuary within, so you should have surely eaten it within holy precincts, as I commanded! vayikra 10:18


+ 96 And Aaron spoke to Moses, "But today, did they offer up their sin offering and their burnt offering before the Lord? But if tragic events like these had befallen me, and if I had eaten a sin offering today, would it have pleased the Lord? Vayikra 10:19


+ 92 Moses heard this, and it pleased him. Vayikra 10:20


+ 86 And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, to say to them: Vayikra 11:1


+ 101 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: These are the creatures that you may eat among all the animals on earth: Vayikra 11:2


+ 112 Any animal that has a cloven hoof that is completely split into double hooves, and which brings up its cud that one you may eat. Vayikra 11:3


+ 129 But these you shall not eat among those that bring up the cud and those that have a cloven hoof: the camel, because it brings up its cud, but does not have a completely cloven hoof; it is unclean for you. Vayikra 11:4


+ 193 And the hyrax, because it brings up its cud, but will not have a completely cloven hoof; it is unclean for you; Vayikra 11:5


+ 112 And the hare, because it brings up its cud, but does not have a completely cloven hoof; it is unclean for you; Vayikra 11:6


+ 211 And the pig, because it has a cloven hoof that is completely split, but will not regurgitate its cud; it is unclean for you. Vayikra 11:7


+ 94 You shall not eat of their flesh, and you shall not touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you. Vayikra 11:8


+ 92 Among all creatures that are in the water, you may eat these: Any of the creatures in the water that has fins and scales, those you may eat, whether it lives in the waters, in the seas or in the rivers. Vayikra 11:9


+ 105 But any creatures that do not have fins and scales, whether in the seas or in the rivers, among all the creeping creatures in the water and among all living creatures that live in the water, are an abomination for you. Vayikra 11:10


+ 96 And they shall be an abomination for you. You shall not eat of their flesh, and their dead bodies you shall hold in abomination. Vayikra 11:11


+ 86 Any creature that does not have fins and scales in the water is an abomination for you. Vayikra 11:12


+ 85 And among birds, you shall hold these in abomination; they shall not be eaten; they are an abomination: The eagle or the griffin vulture, the kite, the osprey, Vayikra 11:13


+ 76 The kestrel, and the vulture after its species, Vayikra 11:14


+ 82 And the raven after its species, Vayikra 11:15


+ 94 The ostrich, the jay, and the sparrow hawk, and the goshawk after its species; Vayikra 11:16


+ 73 The owl, the gull, the little owl; Vayikra 11:17


+ 68 The bat, the starling, the magpie; Vayikra 11:18


+ 75 The stork, the heron after its species; the hoopoe and the atalef bat?; Vayikra 11:19


+ 80 Any flying insect that walks on four, is an abomination for you. Vayikra 11:20


+ 117 However, among all the flying insects that walk on four legs, you may eat from those that have jointed leg like extensions above its regular legs, with which they hop on the ground. Vayikra 11:21


+ 101 From this locust category, you may eat the following: The red locust after its species, the yellow locust after its species, the spotted gray locust after its species and the white locust after its species. Vayikra 11:22


+ 87 But any other flying insect that has four legs, is an abomination for you. Vayikra 11:23


+ 93 And through these you will become unclean; anyone who touches their dead bodies will be unclean until evening; Vayikra 11:24


+ 83 And anyone who carries their carcass shall immerse his garments, and he shall be unclean until evening: Vayikra 11:25


+ 112 Any animal that has a cloven hoof that is not completely split, and which does not bring up its cud, is unclean for you. Anyone who touches them shall become unclean. Vayikra 11:26


+ 112 And among all the animals that walk on four legs, any animal that walks on its paws is unclean for you. Anyone who touches their carcass will be unclean until evening. Vayikra 11:27


+ 89 And one who carries their carcass shall immerse his garments, and he will be unclean until evening. They are unclean for you. Vayikra 11:28


+ 127 And this is unclean for you among creeping creatures that creep on the ground: The weasel, the mouse, and the toad after its species; Vayikra 11:29


+ 76 The hedgehog, the chameleon, the lizard, the snail, and the mole. Vayikra 11:30


+ 102 These are the ones that are unclean for you, among all creeping creatures; anyone who touches them when they are dead will be unclean until evening. Vayikra 11:31


+ 128 And if any of these dead creatures falls upon anything, it will become unclean, whether it is any wooden vessel, garment, hide or sack, any vessel with which work is done; it shall be immersed in water, but will remain unclean until evening, and it will become clean. Vayikra 11:32


+ 105 But any earthenware vessel, into whose interior any of them falls, whatever is inside it shall become unclean, and you shall break the vessel itself. Vayikra 11:33


+ 112 Of any food that is usually eaten, upon which water comes will become unclean, and any beverage that is usually drunk, which is in any vessel, shall become unclean. Vayikra 11:34


+ 100 And anything upon which any of their carcasses of these animals fall, will become unclean. Thus, an oven or stove shall be demolished; they are unclean, and, they shall be unclean for you. Vayikra 11:35


+ 95 But a spring or a cistern, a gathering of water remains clean. However, one who touches their carcass shall become unclean. Vayikra 11:36


+ 89 And if of their carcass falls upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it remains clean. Vayikra 11:37


+ 83 But if water is put upon seeds, and any of their carcass falls on them, they are unclean for you. Vayikra 11:38


+ 96 If an animal that you normally eat, dies, one who touches its carcass shall be unclean until evening. Vayikra 11:39


+ 87 And one who eats of its carcass shall immerse his garments, and he shall be unclean until evening. And one who carries its carcass shall immerse his garments, and he shall be unclean until evening. Vayikra 11:40


+ 82 And any creeping creature that creeps on the ground is an abomination; it shall not be eaten. Vayikra 11:41


+ 101 Any creature that goes on its belly, and any creature that walks on four legs to any creature that has many legs, among all creeping creatures that creep on the ground, you shall not eat, for they are an abomination. Vayikra 11:42


+ 90 You shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping creature that creeps, and you shall not defile yourselves with them, that you should become unclean through them. Vayikra 11:43


+ 187 For I am the Lord your God, and you shall sanctify yourselves and be holy, because I am holy, and you shall not defile yourselves through any creeping creature that crawls on the ground. Vayikra 11:44


+ 99 For I am the Lord Who has brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God. Thus, you shall be holy, because I am holy. Vayikra 11:45


+ 85 This is the law regarding animals, birds, all living creatures that move in water and all creatures that creep on the ground, Vayikra 11:46


+ 83 To distinguish between the unclean and the clean, and between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten. Vayikra 11:47


+ 80 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 12:1


+ 109 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: If a woman conceives and gives birth to a male, she shall be unclean for seven days; as in the days of her menstrual flow, she shall be unclean. Vayikra 12:2


+ 83 And on the eighth day, the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. Vayikra 12:3


+ 182 And for thirty three days, she shall remain in the blood of purity; she shall not touch anything holy, nor may she enter the Sanctuary, until the days of her purification have been completed. Vayikra 12:4


+ 114 And if she gives birth to a female, she shall be unclean for two weeks, like her menstruation period. And for sixty six days, she shall remain in the blood of purity. Vayikra 12:5


+ 101 And when the days of her purification have been completed, whether for a son or for a daughter, she shall bring a sheep in its first year as a burnt offering, and a young dove or a turtle dove as a sin offering, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, to the kohen. Vayikra 12:6


+ 92 And he shall offer it up before the Lord and effect atonement for her, and thus, she will be purified from the source of her blood. This is the law of a woman who gives birth to a male or to a female. Vayikra 12:7


+ 103 And if she cannot afford a sheep, she shall take two turtle doves or two young doves: one as a burnt offering and one as a sin offering. And the kohen shall effect atonement for her, and she shall become clean. Vayikra 12:8


+ 92 And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: Vayikra 13:1


+ 104 If a man has a se'eith, a sappachath, or a bahereth on the skin of his flesh, and it forms a lesion of tzara'ath on the skin of his flesh, he shall be brought to Aaron the kohen, or to one of his sons, the kohanim. Vayikra 13:2


+ 102 The kohen shall look at the lesion on the skin of his flesh, and if hair in the lesion has turned white and the appearance of the lesion is deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a lesion of tzara'ath. When the kohen sees this, he shall pronounce him unclean. Vayikra 13:3


+ 114 But if it is a white bahereth on the skin of his flesh, and its appearance is not deeper than the skin, and its hair has not turned white, the kohen shall quarantine the person with the lesion for seven days. Vayikra 13:4


+ 105 And on the seventh day, the kohen shall see him. And, behold! the lesion has remained the same in its appearance; the lesion has not spread on the skin. So the kohen shall quarantine him for seven days a second time. Vayikra 13:5


+ 95 And the kohen shall see him on the seventh day a second time. And, behold! the lesion has become dimmer, and the lesion has not spread on the skin, the kohen shall pronounce him clean. It is a mispachath. He shall immerse his garments and become clean. Vayikra 13:5


+ 93 However, if the mispachath spreads on the skin after it has been shown it to the kohen for its purification, it shall be shown to the kohen a second time. Vayikra 13:6


+ 108 However, if the mispachath spreads on the skin after it has been shown it to the kohen for its purification, it shall be shown to the kohen a second time. Vayikra 13:7


+ 86 The kohen shall look at it. And, behold! the mispachath has spread on the skin. The kohen shall pronounce him unclean. It is tzara'ath. Vayikra 13:8


+ 95 If a man has a lesion of tzara'ath, he shall be brought to the kohen. Vayikra 13:9


+ 102 The kohen shall look at it. And, behold! there is a white se'eith on the skin, and either it has turned the hair white, or there is healthy, live flesh in the se'eith, Vayikra 13:10


+ 89 it is old tzara'ath on the skin of his flesh, and the kohen shall pronounce him unclean; he need not quarantine him because he is unclean. Vayikra 13:11


+ 110 And if the tzara'ath has spread over the skin, whereby the tzara'ath covers all the skin of the person with the lesion, from his head to his feet, wherever the eyes of the kohen can see it, Vayikra 13:12


+ 90 Then the kohen shall look at it. And, behold! the tzara'ath has covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce the person with the lesion clean. He has turned completely white; he is clean. Vayikra 13:13


+ 84 But on the day that live flesh appears in it, he shall become unclean. Vayikra 13:14


+ 97 When the kohen sees the healthy, live flesh, he shall pronounce him unclean. The live flesh is unclean; it is tzara'ath. Vayikra 13:15


+ 93 But, if the healthy, live flesh once again turns white, he shall come to the kohen. Vayikra 13:16


+ 87 And the kohen shall look at it. And, behold! the lesion has turned white; the kohen shall pronounce the lesion clean. He is clean. Vayikra 13:17


+ 88 If a person's flesh has an inflammation on its skin, and it heals, Vayikra 13:18


+ 92 And on the place of the inflammation there is a white se'eith, or a reddish white bahereth, it shall be shown to the kohen. Vayikra 13:19


+ 111 The kohen shall look [at it]. And, behold! its appearance is lower than the skin, and its hair has turned white; so the kohen shall pronounce him unclean. It is a lesion of tzara'ath that has erupted on the inflammation. Vayikra 13:20


+ 98 But if the kohen looks at it, and behold! it does not contain white hair, nor does it appear to be lower than the skin, and it is dim, the kohen shall quarantine him for seven days. Vayikra 13:21


+ 82 And if it spreads on the skin, the kohen shall pronounce him unclean. It is a lesion. Vayikra 13:22


+ 96 But if the bahereth remains in its place, not spreading, it is the scar tissue of the inflammation, and the kohen shall pronounce him clean. Vayikra 13:23


+ 88 If a person's flesh has a fire burn on its skin, and on the healed area of the burn, there is a reddish white or white bahereth, Vayikra 13:24


+ 102 The kohen shall look at it. And, behold! the hair has turned white in the bahereth, and its appearance is deeper than the skin, it is tzara'ath which has spread in the burn. So, the kohen shall pronounce him unclean. It is a lesion of tzara'ath. Vayikra 13:25


+ 99 But, if the kohen looks at it, and, behold! there is no white hair in the bahereth, and it is not lower than the skin and it is dim, the kohen shall quarantine him for seven days. Vayikra 13:26


+ 93 And the kohen shall look at it on the seventh day. If it has spread on the skin, the kohen shall pronounce him unclean. It is a lesion of tzara'ath. Vayikra 13:27


+ 96 But if the bahereth remains in its place, not increasing on the skin, and it is dim, it is a se'eith of the burn, and the kohen shall pronounce him clean, because it is the scar tissue of the burn. Vayikra 13:28


+ 72 If a man or a woman has a lesion on the head or on the beard area, Vayikra 13:29


+ 96 The kohen shall look at the lesion, and, behold! its appearance is deeper than the skin, and in it is a thin golden yellow hair, the kohen shall pronounce him unclean. It is a nethek, which is tzara'ath of the head or the beard. Vayikra 13:30


+ 105 But when the kohen looks at the nethek lesion, and, behold! its appearance is not deeper than the skin, and there is no black hair in it, the kohen shall quarantine the person with the nethek lesion for seven days. Vayikra 13:31


+ 87 And the kohen shall look at the lesion on the seventh day. And, behold! the nethek has not spread, and no golden yellow hair was in it, and the appearance of the nethek is not deeper than the skin, Vayikra 13:32


+ 92 He shall shave himself, but adjacent to the nethek he shall not shave, and the kohen shall quarantine the person with the nethek again for seven days. Vayikra 13:33


+ 98 Then the kohen shall look at the nethek on the seventh day. And, behold! the nethek did not spread on the skin, and its appearance is not deeper than the skin, the kohen shall pronounce him clean, and he shall immerse his garments and become clean. Vayikra 13:34


+ 89 But if the nethek spreads on the skin, after he has been declared clean, Vayikra 13:35


+ 102 the kohen shall look at it, and, behold! the nethek has spread on the skin, the kohen need not examine for golden yellow hair; it is unclean! Vayikra 13:36


+ 101 But if the appearance of the nethek has remained the same, or if black hair has grown in it, the nethek has healed; he is clean. So the kohen shall pronounce him clean. Vayikra 13:37


+ 87 If a man or a woman has spots on the skin of their flesh, white spots, Vayikra 13:38


+ 68 the kohen shall look, and, behold! there are dim white spots on the skin of their flesh, it is a bohak pigmentation which has spread on the skin. He is clean. 13:39


+ 65 If a man loses the hair on the back of his head, he is bald. He is clean. 13:40


+ 86 And if he loses his hair on the side toward his face, he is bald at the front. He is clean. Vayikra 13:41


+ 90 If there is a reddish white lesion on the back or front bald area, it is a spreading tzara'ath in his back or front bald area. Vayikra 13:42


+ 111 So the kohen shall look at it. And, behold! there is a reddish white se'eith lesion on his back or front bald area, like the appearance of tzara'ath on the skin of the flesh, Vayikra 13:43


+ 88 He is a man afflicted with tzara'ath; he is unclean. The kohen shall surely pronounce him unclean; his lesion is on his head. Vayikra 13:44


+ 103 And the person with tzara'ath, in whom there is the lesion, his garments shall be torn, his head shall be unshorn, he shall cover himself down to his mustache and call out, Unclean! Unclean! Vayikra 13:45


+ 98 All the days the lesion is upon him, he shall remain unclean. He is unclean; he shall dwell isolated; his dwelling shall be outside the camp. Vayikra 13:46


+ 91 And as for the garment that has the lesion of tzara'ath upon it, on a woolen garment, or on a linen garment, Vayikra 13:47


+ 96 Or on threads prepared for the warp or the woof of linen or of wool, or on leather or on anything made from leather. Vayikra 13:48


+ 96 If the lesion on the garment, the leather, the warp or woof threads or on any leather article, is deep green or deep red, it is a lesion of tzara'ath, and it shall be shown to the kohen. Vayikra 13:49


+ 81 The kohen shall look at the lesion, and he shall quarantine the article with the lesion for seven days. Vayikra 13:50


+ 101 And he shall look at the lesion on the seventh day. If the lesion has spread on the garment, or on the warp or woof threads, or on the leather or on any article made from leather, the lesion is a malignant tzara'ath; it is unclean. Vayikra 13:51


+ 111 And he shall burn the garment, the warp or woof threads of wool or of linen, or any leather article which has the lesion upon it, for it is a malignant tzara'ath ; it shall be burned in fire. Vayikra 13:52


+ 95 But if the kohen looks, and, behold! the lesion has not spread on the garment, the warp or woof threads, or any leather article, Vayikra 13:53


+ 74 The kohen shall order, and they shall wash what the lesion is upon, and he shall quarantine it again for seven days. Vayikra 13:54


+ 104 Then the kohen shall look at it after the lesion has been washed. And, behold! the lesion has not changed in appearance, and the lesion has not spread; it is unclean. You shall burn it in fire. It is a penetrating lesion on the worn or new article. Vayikra 13:55


+ 95 But if the kohen looks at it after it has been washed, and behold! the lesion has become dimmer, he shall tear it out of the garment, out of the leather, or out of the warp or woof threads. Vayikra 13:56


+ 102 And if it appears again on the garment, the warp or woof threads or any leather article, it is a recurrent growth of the lesion. You shall burn it in fire the article upon which the lesion is found. Vayikra 13:57


+ 114 But the garment, the warp or woof threads or any leather article which is washed, and the lesion disappears from them, shall be immersed a second time, and it shall be clean. Vayikra 13:58


+ 102 This is the law of a lesion of tzara'ath on a woolen or linen garment, warp or woof threads, or any leather article, to render it clean or unclean. Vayikra 13:59


+ 85 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 14:1


+ 95 This shall be the law of the person afflicted with tzara'ath, on the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought to the kohen. Vayikra 14:2


+ 92 The kohen shall go outside the camp, and the kohen shall look, and behold, the lesion of tzara'ath has healed in the afflicted person. Vayikra 14:3


+ 96 Then the kohen shall order, and the person to be cleansed shall take two live, clean birds, a cedar stick, a strip of crimson wool, and hyssop. Vayikra 14:4


+ 99 The kohen shall order, and one shall slaughter the one bird into an earthenware vessel, over spring water. Vayikra 14:5


+ 111 As for the live bird, he shall take it, and then the cedar stick, the strip of crimson wool, and the hyssop, and, along with the live bird, he shall dip them into the blood of the slaughtered bird, over the spring water. Vayikra 14:6


+ 103 He shall then sprinkle seven times upon the person being cleansed from tzara'ath, and he shall cleanse him. He shall then send away the live bird into the open field. Vayikra 14:7


+ 107 The person being cleansed shall then immerse his garments, shave off all his hair, and immerse himself in water, and become clean. After this, he may enter the camp, but he shall remain outside his tent for seven days. Vayikra 14:8


+ 99 And it shall be, on the seventh day, that he shall shave off all his hair: that of his head, his beard, his eyebrows; indeed, all his hair, he shall shave off. He shall then immerse his garments and immerse his flesh in water, thus becoming clean. Vayikra 14:9


+ 96 And on the eighth day, he shall take two unblemished male lambs, one unblemished ewe lamb in its first year, three tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with olive oil as a meal offering, and one log of olive oil. Vayikra 14:10


+ 106 And the kohen who is performing the cleansing shall place the person being cleansed together with these things, before the Lord, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 14:11


+ 94 And the kohen shall take one male lamb and bring it as a guilt offering, along with the log of oil, and wave them as a waving before the Lord. Vayikra 14:12


+ 97 He shall slaughter the lamb in the place where one slaughters the sin offering and the burnt offering, in a holy place. For regarding the kohen['s service], the guilt offering is like the sin offering. It is a holy of holies. Vayikra 14:13


+ 110 The kohen shall take some of the blood of the guilt offering, and the kohen shall place it above the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. Vayikra 14:14


+ 91 And the kohen shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it onto the kohen's left palm. Vayikra 14:15


+ 93 The kohen shall then dip his right index finger into some of the oil that is on his left palm, and sprinkle some of the oil with his index finger seven times, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:16


+ 108 And some of the remainder of the oil that is in his palm, the kohen shall place on the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot, on top of the blood of the guilt offering. Vayikra 14:17


+ 81 And what is left over from the oil that is in the kohen's palm, he shall place upon the head of the person being cleansed, and the kohen shall effect atonement for him before the Lord. Vayikra 14:18


+ 95 The kohen shall then perform the service of the sin offering and effect atonement for the person being cleansed of his uncleanness. After this, he shall slaughter the burnt offering. Vayikra 14:19


+ 82 And the kohen shall bring up the burnt offering and the meal offering to the altar. The kohen shall thus effect atonement for him, and he shall be completely clean. Vayikra 14:20


+ 101 But if he is poor and cannot afford these sacrifices, he shall take one male lamb as a guilt offering for a waving to effect atonement for him, and one tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil as a meal offering, and a log of oil. Vayikra 14:21


+ 79 And two turtle doves or two young doves, according to what he can afford; one shall be a sin offering, and one a burnt offering. Vayikra 14:22


+ 92 And he shall bring them on the eighth day of his cleansing, to the kohen, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:23


+ 79 And the kohen shall take the guilt offering lamb and the log of oil, and the kohen shall wave them as a waving, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:24


+ 116 And he shall slaughter the guilt offering lamb, and the kohen shall take some of the blood of the guilt offering's and place it on the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. Vayikra 14:25


+ 77 And the kohen shall then pour some of the oil into the left palm of the kohen. Vayikra 14:26


+ 114 And the kohen shall sprinkle with his right index finger some of the oil that is in his left palm, seven times before the Lord. Vayikra 14:27


+ 102 And the kohen shall place some of the oil that is in his palm, on the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot, on the place of the blood of the guilt offering. Vayikra 14:28


+ 91 And what is left over from the oil that is in the kohen's palm, he shall place upon the head of the person being cleansed, to effect atonement for him, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:29


+ 97 He shall then perform the service of one of the turtle doves or of the young doves, from whatever he can afford, Vayikra 14:30


+ 114 From what he can afford, one as a sin offering, and one as a burnt offering, besides the meal offering, and the kohen shall effect atonement for the person being cleansed, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:31


+ 105 This is the law of one in whom there is a lesion of tzara'ath, who cannot afford the full array of sacrifices, when he is to be cleansed. Vayikra 14:32


+ 83 And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, Vayikra 14:33


+ 95 When you come to the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as a possession, and I place a lesion of tzara'ath upon a house in the land of your possession, Vayikra 14:34


+ 116 and the one to whom the house belongs comes and tells the kohen, saying, Something like a lesion has appeared to me in the house, Vayikra 14:35


+ 94 The kohen shall order that they clear out the house, before the kohen comes to look at the lesion, so that everything in the house should not become unclean. After this, the kohen shall come to look at the house. Vayikra 14:36


+ 107 And he shall look at the lesion. Now, if the lesion in the walls of the house consists of dark green or dark red sunken looking stains, appearing as if deeper than the wall, Vayikra 14:37


+ 88 Then the kohen shall go out of the house to the entrance of the house, and he shall quarantine the house for seven days. Vayikra 14:38


+ 80 Then the kohen shall return on the seventh day and look at the house. Now, if the lesion has spread in the walls of the house, Vayikra 14:39


+ 101 The kohen shall order that they remove the stones upon which the lesion is found, and they shall cast them away outside the city, to an unclean place. Vayikra 14:40


+ 93 And he shall scrape out the house from the inside, all around, and they shall pour out the mortar dust from what they scraped, outside the city, into an unclean place. Vayikra 14:41


+ 92 And they shall take other stones and bring them instead of those stones. And he shall take other mortar dust, and plaster the house. Vayikra 14:42


+ 108 And if the lesion returns and erupts in the house, after he had removed the stones, and after the house had been scraped around and after it had been plastered, Vayikra 14:43


+ 94 Then the kohen shall come and look at it. Now, if the lesion in the house has spread, it is malignant tzara'ath in the house; it is unclean. Vayikra 14:44


+ 97 He shall demolish the house, its stones, its wood, and all the mortar dust of the house, and he shall take them outside the city, to an unclean place. Vayikra 14:45


+ 84 And anyone entering the house during all the days of its quarantine shall become unclean until the evening. Vayikra 14:46


+ 102 And whoever lies down in the house, shall immerse his garments, and whoever eats in the house, shall immerse his garments. Vayikra 14:47


+ 119 But if the kohen comes and comes again and looks at the lesion, and behold, the lesion did not spread in the house, after the house has been plastered, the kohen shall pronounce the house clean, because the lesion has healed. Vayikra 14:48


+ 112 To ritually cleanse the house, he shall take two birds, a cedar stick, a strip of crimson wool, and hyssop. Vayikra 14:49


+ 94 He shall slaughter one bird into an earthenware vessel, over spring water. Vayikra 14:50


+ 118 And he shall take the cedar stick, the hyssop, the strip of crimson wool, and the live bird, and he shall dip them into the blood of slaughtered bird and into the spring water and sprinkle towards the house seven times. Vayikra 14:51


+ 112 And he shall thus cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, the spring water, the live bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop and the strip of crimson wool. Vayikra 14:52


+ 125 He shall then send away the live bird outside the city, onto the open field. He shall thus effect atonement for the house, and it will be clean. Vayikra 14:53


+ 76 All this is the law for every lesion of tzara'ath, and for a nethek, Vayikra 14:54


+ 87 And for tzara'ath of garments and houses, Vayikra 14:55


+ 73 And for a se'eith and for a sapachath and for a bahereth; Vayikra 14:56


+ 90 To render decisions regarding the day of uncleanness and the day of cleanness. This is the law of tzara'ath. Vayikra 14:57


+ 84 And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, Vayikra 15:1


+ 96 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, If any man has a discharge from his flesh, his discharge is unclean. Vayikra 15:2


+ 98 And this shall be the nature of his uncleanness due to his discharge: if his flesh runs with his discharge, or if his flesh is plugged up by his discharge, that is his uncleanness. Vayikra 15:3


+ 84 Any bedding upon which the man with the discharge will lie, shall become unclean, and any object upon which he will sit, shall become unclean. Vayikra 15:4

+ 97 And if the man with the discharge spits upon a clean person, that person shall immerse his garments and immerse himself in water, and he shall remain unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:8


+ 85 Any riding gear upon which the man with the discharge will ride, becomes unclean. Vayikra 15:9

+ 110 And whomever the man with the discharge touches, without the latter having rinsed his hands, shall immerse his garments and immerse himself in the waters, and he shall remain unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:11


+ 98 And an earthenware vessel which the man with the discharge will touch, shall be broken. And any wooden vessel shall be rinsed in water. Vayikra 15:12


+ 100 When the man with the discharge is cleansed of his discharge, he shall count seven days for himself for his purification, and then immerse his garments and immerse his flesh in spring water, and he shall be clean. Vayikra 15:13


+ 88 And on the eighth day, he shall take for himself two turtle doves or two young doves, and come before the Lord, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and give them to the kohen. Vayikra 15:14


+ 70 And the kohen shall make them: one into a sin offering and one into a burnt offering, and the kohen shall effect atonement for him from his discharge, before the Lord. Vayikra 15:15


+ 91 A man from whom there is a discharge of semen, shall immerse all his flesh in water, and he shall remain unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:16


+ 86 And any garment or any leather object which has semen on it, shall be immersed in water, and shall remain unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:17


+ 94 A woman with whom a man cohabits, whereby there was a discharge of semen, they shall immerse in water, and they shall remain unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:18


+ 88 If a woman has a discharge, her flesh discharging blood, she shall remain in her state of menstrual separation for seven days, and whoever touches her shall become unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:19


+ 80 And whatever she lies on during her menstrual separation, shall become unclean, and whatever she sits on, shall become unclean. Vayikra 15:20

+ 113 And the Lord said to Moses: Speak to your brother Aaron, that he should not come at all times into the Holy within the dividing curtain, in front of the cover that is upon the ark, so that he should not die, for I appear over the ark cover in a cloud. Vayikra 16:2


+ 84 With this shall Aaron enter the Holy: with a young bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering. Vayikra 16:3

+ 93 And the person who burns them shall immerse his garments and immerse his flesh in water. And after this, he may come into the camp. Vayikra 16:28


+ 116 And all this shall be as an eternal statute for you; in the seventh month, on the tenth of the month, you shall afflict yourselves, and you shall not do any work neither the native nor the stranger who dwells among you. Vayikra 16:29


+ 85 For on this day He shall effect atonement for you to cleanse you. Before the Lord, you shall be cleansed from all your sins. Vayikra 16:30


+ 88 It is a Sabbath of rest for you, and you shall afflict yourselves. It is an eternal statute. Vayikra 16:31


+ 95 And the Kohen who is anointed or who is invested to serve in his father's stead, shall effect this atonement, and he shall don the linen garments, the holy garments; Vayikra 16:32


+ 90 And he shall effect atonement upon the Holy of Holies, and he shall effect atonement upon the Tent of Meeting and upon the altar, and he shall effect atonement upon the kohanim and upon all the people of the congregation. Vayikra 16:33

+ 91 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 17:1


+ 86 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, and to all the children of Israel, and say to them: This is the thing the Lord has commanded, saying: Vayikra 17:2


+ 108 Any man of the House of Israel, who slaughters an ox, a lamb, or a goat inside the camp, or who slaughters outside the camp, Vayikra 17:3


+ 94 But does not bring it to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting to offer up as a sacrifice to the Lord before the Mishkan of the Lord, this act shall be counted for that man as blood he has shed blood, and that man shall be cut off from among his people; Vayikra 17:4


+ 105 In order that the children of Israel should bring their offerings which they slaughter on the open field, and bring them to the Lord, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, to the kohen, and slaughter them as peace offerings to the Lord. Vayikra 17:5


+ 92 And the kohen shall dash the blood upon the altar of the Lord at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and he shall cause the fat to go up in smoke, as a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 17:6


+ 104 And they shall no longer slaughter their sacrifices to the satyrs after which they stray. This shall be an eternal statute for them, for all their generations. Vayikra 17:7


+ 100 And you should say to them: Any man of the House of Israel or of the strangers who will sojourn among them, who offers up a burnt offering or any other sacrifice, Vayikra 17:8


+ 98 but does not bring it to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting to make it a sacrifice to the Lord, that man shall be cut off from his people. Vayikra 17:9


+ 127 And any man of the House of Israel or of the strangers that sojourn among them, who eats any blood, I will set My attention upon the soul who eats the blood, and I will cut him off from among his people. Vayikra 17:10


+ 104 For the soul of the flesh is in the blood, and I have therefore given it to you to be placed upon the altar, to atone for your souls. For it is the blood that atones for the soul. Vayikra 17:11


+ 109 Therefore, I said to the children of Israel: None of you shall eat blood, and the stranger who sojourns among you shall not eat blood. Vayikra 17:12


+ 112 And any man of the children of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among them, who traps a quarry of a wild animal or bird that may be eaten, and sheds its blood, he shall cover it the blood with dust. Vayikra 17:13


+ 99 For regarding the soul of all flesh its blood is in its soul, and I said to the children of Israel: You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the soul of any flesh is its blood all who eat it shall be cut off. Vayikra 17:14


+ 104 And any person, whether a native or a stranger, who eats carrion or what was torn, shall immerse his garments and immerse himself in the waters, and shall remain unclean until evening, and then he shall become clean. Vayikra 17:15


+ 84 But if he does not immerse his garments or immerse his flesh, he shall bear his sin. Vayikra 17:16


+ 82 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 18:1


+ 94 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 18:2


+ 119 Like the practice of the land of Egypt, in which you dwelled, you shall not do, and like the practice of the land of Canaan, to which I am bringing you, you shall not do, and you shall not follow their statutes. Vayikra 18:3


+ 96 You shall fulfill My ordinances and observe My statutes, to follow them. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 18:4


+ 90 You shall observe My statutes and My ordinances, which a man shall do and live by them. I am the Lord. Vayikra 18:5


+ 88 No man shall come near to any of his close relatives, to uncover their nakedness. I am the Lord. Vayikra 18:6


+ 87 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother; she is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness. Vayikra 18:7


+ 89 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's wife; it is your father's nakedness. Vayikra 18:8


+ 107 The nakedness of your sister, whether your father's daughter or your mother's daughter, whether born to one who may remain in the home or born to one who must be sent outside you shall not uncover their nakedness. Vayikra 18:9


+ 100 The nakedness of your son's daughter or your daughter's daughter you shall not uncover their nakedness, for they are your own nakedness. Vayikra 18:10


+ 97 The nakedness of the daughter of your father's wife, born to your father she is your sister: you shall not uncover her nakedness. Vayikra 18:11


+ 92 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's sister; she is the close relative of your father. Vayikra 18:12


+ 94 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother's sister, for she is the close relative of your mother. Vayikra 18:13


+ 83 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's brother you shall not come near his wife; she is your aunt. Vayikra 18:14


+ 98 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter in law; she is your son's wife you shall not uncover her nakedness. Vayikra 18:15


+ 95 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother's wife: it is your brother's nakedness. Vayikra 18:16


+ 93 You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter; you shall not take in marriage her son's daughter or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness they are close relatives, it is evil counsel. Vayikra 18:17


+ 110 And you shall not take a woman with her sister in marriage as rivals, to uncover the nakedness of one upon the other, in her lifetime. Vayikra 18:18


+ 101 And to a woman during the uncleanness of her separation, you shall not come near to uncover her nakedness. Vayikra 18:19


+ 91 You shall not lie carnally with your neighbor's wife, to become defiled by her. Vayikra 18:20


+ 96 And you shall not give any of your offspring to pass through for Molech. And you shall not profane the Name of your God. I am the Lord. Vayikra 18:21


+ 90 You shall not lie down with a male, as with a woman: this is an abomination. Vayikra 18:22


+ 95 And with no animal shall you cohabit, to become defiled by it. And a woman shall not stand in front of an animal to cohabit with it; this is depravity. Vayikra 18:23


+ 112 You shall not defile yourselves by any of these things, for the nations, whom I am sending away from before you, have defiled themselves with all these things. Vayikra 18:24


+ 110 And the land became defiled, and I visited its sin upon it, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. Vayikra 18:25

+ 109 But he shall not come to the dividing curtain, nor shall he draw near to the altar, for he has a defect, and he shall not desecrate My holy things, for I am the Lord Who sanctifies them. Vayikra 21:23


+ 97 Moses told this to Aaron and his sons, and to all of the children of Israel. Vayikra 21:24


+ 91 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 22:1


+ 80 No non kohen may eat holy things; a kohen's resident and his hireling may not eat holy things. Vayikra 22:10


+ 95 And if a kohen acquires a person, an acquisition through his money, he may eat of it, and those born in his house they may eat of his food. Vayikra 22:11


+ 139 And if a kohen's daughter is married to a non kohen, she may no longer eat of the separated holy things. Vayikra 22:12


+ 104 But if the kohen's daughter becomes widowed or divorced, and she has no offspring she may return to her father's household as in her youth and eat of her father's food, but no non kohen may eat of it. Vayikra 22:13


+ 148 And if a man unintentionally eats what is holy, he shall add a fifth of it to it and give the kohen the holy thing. Vayikra 22:14


+ 99 And they shall not desecrate the holy things of the children of Israel, those that they have set aside for the Lord, Vayikra 22:15


+ 102 Thereby bringing upon themselves to bear iniquity and guilt, when they eat their holy things, for I am the Lord Who sanctifies them. Vayikra 22:16


+ 85 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 22:17


+ 119 Speak to Aaron and to his sons and to all the children of Israel and say to them: Any man whatsoever from the house of Israel or from the strangers among Israel who offers up his sacrifice for any of their vows or for any of their donations that they may offer up to the Lord as a burnt offering. Vayikra 22:18


+ 96 To be favorable for you, it shall be an unblemished, male, from cattle, from sheep, or from goats. Vayikra 22:19


+ 108 And if a man offers up a peace offering to the Lord for declaring a vow or as a donation from cattle or from the flock to be accepted, it shall be unblemished. It shall not have any defect in it. Vayikra 22:21


+ 80 You shall keep My commandments and perform them. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:31


+ 82 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 23:1


+ 117 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you come to the Land which I am giving you, and you reap its harvest, you shall bring to the kohen an omer of the beginning of your reaping. Vayikra 23:10


+ 84 And he shall wave the omer before the Lord so that it will be acceptable for you; the kohen shall wave it on the day after the rest day. Vayikra 23:11


+ 171 And on the day of your waving the omer, you shall offer up an unblemished lamb in its first year as a burnt offering to the Lord; Vayikra 23:12


+ 101 Its meal offering shall be two tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, a fire offering to the Lord as a spirit of satisfaction. And its libation shall be a quarter of a hin of wine. Vayikra 23:13


+ 96 You shall not eat bread or flour made from parched grain or fresh grain, until this very day, until you bring your God's sacrifice. This is an eternal statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. Vayikra 23:14


+ 95 And you shall count for yourselves, from the morrow of the rest day from the day you bring the omer as a wave offering seven weeks; they shall be complete. Vayikra 23:15


+ 99 You shall count until the day after the seventh week, namely, the fiftieth day, on which you shall bring a new meal offering to the Lord. Vayikra 23:16


+ 106 From your dwelling places, you shall bring bread, set aside, two loaves made from two tenths of an ephah; they shall be of fine flour, and they shall be baked leavened, the first offering to the Lord. Vayikra 23:17


+ 121 And associated with the bread, you shall bring seven unblemished lambs in their first year, one young bull, and two rams these shall be a burnt offering to the Lord, along with their meal offering and libations a fire offering with a spirit of satisfaction to the Lord. Vayikra 23:18


+ 98 And you shall offer up one he goat as a sin offering, and two lambs in their first year as a peace offering. Vayikra 23:19


+ 87 And you shall designate on this very day a holy occasion it shall be for you; you shall not perform any work of labor. This is an eternal statute in all your dwelling places throughout your generations. Vayikra 23:21


+ 85 You shall not perform any work. This is an eternal statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. Vayikra 23:31


+ 89 And you shall celebrate it as a festival to the Lord for seven days in the year. It is an eternal statute throughout your generations that you celebrate it in the seventh month. Vayikra 23:41


+ 88 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 24:1


+ 97 Now, the son of an Israelite woman and he was the son of an Egyptian man went out among the children of Israel, and they quarreled in the camp this son of the Israelite woman, and an Israelite man. Vayikra 24:10


+ 109 And the son of the Israelite woman pronounced the Divine Name and cursed. So they brought him to Moses. His mother's name was Shelomith the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan. Vayikra 24:11


+ 98 They placed him in the guardhouse, until his sentence would be specified to them by the word of the Lord. Vayikra 24:12


+ 93 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 24:13


+ 89 Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and all who heard his blasphemy shall lean their hands on his head. And the entire community shall stone him. Vayikra 24:14


+ 81 And to the children of Israel, you shall speak, saying: Any man who blasphemes his God shall bear his sin. Vayikra 24:15


+ 111 And one who blasphemously pronounces the Name of the Lord, shall be put to death; the entire community shall stone him; convert and resident alike if he pronounces the Divine Name, he shall be put to death. Vayikra 24:16


+ 87 And if a man strikes down any human being he shall be put to death. Vayikra 24:17


+ 81 And one who slays an animal shall pay for it the value of a life for the life he took. Vayikra 24:18


+ 105 And a man who inflicts an injury upon his fellow man just as he did, so shall be done to him namely, Vayikra 24:19


+ 90 And one who injures an animal shall pay for it. And one who strikes a person shall be put to death. Vayikra 24:21


+ 83 And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, Vayikra 25:1


+ 96 And you shall sanctify the fiftieth year, and proclaim freedom for slaves throughout the land for all who live on it. It shall be a Jubilee for you, and you shall return, each man to his property,_ and you shall return, each man to his family. Vayikra 25:10


+ 113 This fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee for you you shall not sow, nor shall you reap its aftergrowth or pick [its grapes] that you had set aside for yourself. Vayikra 25:11


+ 100 For it is Jubilee. It shall be holy for you; you shall eat its produce from the field. Vayikra 25:12


+ 104 During this Jubilee year, you shall return, each man to his property. Vayikra 25:13


+ 108 And when you make a sale to your fellow Jew or make a purchase from the hand of your fellow Jew, you shall not wrong one another. Vayikra 25:14


+ 104 According to the number of years after the Jubilee, you shall purchase from your fellow Jew; according to the number of years of crops, he shall sell to you. Vayikra 25:15


+ 105 The more the remaining years, you shall increase its purchase price, and the fewer the remaining years, you shall decrease its purchase price, because he is selling you a number of crops. Vayikra 25:16


+ 95 And you shall not wrong, one man his fellow Jew, and you shall fear your God, for I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 25:17


+ 126 You shall perform My statutes, keep My ordinances and perform them then you will live on the land securely. Vayikra 25:18


+ 96 And the land will then yield its fruit and you will eat to satiety, and live upon it securely. Vayikra 25:19


+ 108 Know then, that I will command My blessing for you in the sixth year, and it will yield produce for three years. Vayikra 25:21


+ 116 But houses in open cities, which do not have a wall surrounding them, are to be considered as the field of the land. It may have redemption and shall leave the purchaser's possession in the Jubilee. Vayikra 25:31


+ 83 Then, he shall leave you he, and his children with him, and he shall return to his family and resume the status of his fathers. Vayikra 25:41


+ 88 If there are still many years, according to them, he shall return his redemption money out of the money for which he was purchased. Vayikra 25:51


+ 102 You shall not make idols for yourselves, nor shall you set up a statue or a monument for yourselves. And in your land you shall not place a pavement stone on which to prostrate yourselves, for I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 26:1


+ 76 You will eat very old produce, and you will clear out the old from before the new. Vayikra 26:10


+ 79 And I will place My dwelling in your midst, and My Spirit will not reject you; Vayikra 26:11


+ 80 I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be My people. Vayikra 26:12


+ 87 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt from being slaves to them; and I broke the pegs of your yoke and led you upright. Vayikra 26:13


+ 76 But if you do not listen to Me and do not perform all these commandments, Vayikra 26:14


+ 103 And if you despise My statutes and reject My ordinances, not performing any of My commandments, thereby breaking My covenant Vayikra 26:15


+ 94 Then I too, will do the same to you; I will order upon you shock, consumption, fever, and diseases that cause hopeless longing and depression. You will sow your seed in vain, and your enemies will eat it. Vayikra 26:16


+ 76 I will set My attention against you, and you will be smitten before your enemies. Your enemies will rule over you; you will flee, but no one will be pursuing you. Vayikra 26:17


+ 84 And if, during these, you will not listen to Me, I will add another seven punishments for your sins: Vayikra 26:18


+ 75 I will break the pride of your strength and make your skies like iron and your land like copper. Vayikra 26:19


+ 90 And if you treat Me as happenstance, and you do not wish to listen to Me, I will add seven punishments corresponding to your sins: Vayikra 26:21


+ 97 I will lay your cities waste and make your holy places desolate, and I will not partake of your pleasant fragrances. Vayikra 26:31


+ 101 Then I too, will treat them as happenstance and bring them back while in the land of their enemies. If then, their clogged heart becomes humbled, then, their sufferings will gain appeasement for their iniquity, Vayikra 26:41


+ 74 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 27:1


+ 96 He shall not exchange it or offer a substitute for it, whether it be a good one for a bad one, or a bad one for a good one. But if he does substitute one animal for another animal, both that one and its replacement shall be holy. Vayikra 27:10


+ 65 And if it is any unclean animal, of whose type shall not be brought as an offering to the Lord, then he shall stand up the animal before the kohen. Vayikra 27:11


+ 83 The kohen shall then evaluate it whether it is good or bad; like the evaluation of the kohen, so shall it be. Vayikra 27:12


+ 51 But if he redeems it, he shall add its fifth to its value. Vayikra 27:13


+ 73 And if a man consecrates his house to be holy to the Lord, the kohen shall evaluate it whether good or bad; as the kohen evaluates it, so shall it remain. Vayikra 27:14


+ 67 But if the one who consecrated it redeems his house, he shall add to it a fifth of its valuation money, and it shall be his. Vayikra 27:15


+ 87 And if a man consecrates some of the field of his inherited property to the Lord, the valuation shall be according to its sowing: an area which requires a chomer of barley seeds at fifty silver shekels. Vayikra 27:16


+ 63 Now, if he consecrates his field from when the Jubilee year has ended, it shall remain at its full valuation. Vayikra 27:17


+ 76 But if he consecrates his field after the Jubilee, the kohen shall calculate the money for him, according to the remaining years until the next Jubilee year, and it shall be deducted from the valuation. Vayikra 27:18


+ 59 If the one who consecrated it redeems the field, he shall add to it a fifth of the valuation money, and it shall be his. Vayikra 27:19


+ 89 But, when the field leaves in the Jubilee, it shall be holy to the Lord like a field devoted; his inherited property shall belong to the kohen. Vayikra 27:21


+ 54 And if a man redeems some of his tithe, he shall add its fifth to it. Vayikra 27:31


+ 121 The Lord spoke to Moses in the Sinai Desert, in the Tent of Meeting on the first day of the second month, in the second year after the exodus from the land of Egypt, saying. Bamidbar 1:1


+ 115 Take the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, by families following their fathers' houses; a head count of every male according to the number of their names. Bamidbar 1:2


+ 99 From twenty years old and upwards, all who are fit to go out to the army in Israel, you shall count them by their legions you and Aaron. Bamidbar 1:3

+ 93 These were the ones summoned by the congregation, the princes of the tribes of their fathers; they are the heads of the thousands of Israel. Bamidbar 1:16


+ 80 Then Moses and Aaron took these men, who were indicated by their names, Bamidbar 1:17


+ 101 And they assembled all the congregation on the first day of the second month, and they declared their pedigrees according to their families according to their fathers' houses; according to the number of names, a head count of every male from twenty years old and upward. Bamidbar 1:18


+ 71 As the Lord commanded Moses, so did he count them in the Sinai desert. Bamidbar 1:19

+ 164 And a man lie with her carnally, but it was hidden from her husband's eyes, but she was secluded with the suspected adulterer and there was no witness against her, and she was not seized. Bamidbar 5:13


+ 80 But a spirit of jealousy had come upon him and he became jealous of his wife, and she was defiled, or, a spirit of jealousy had come upon him and he was jealous of his wife, and she was not defiled. Bamidbar 5:14


+ 97 Then the man shall bring his wife to the kohen and bring her offering for her, one tenth of an ephah of barley flour. He shall neither pour oil over it nor put frankincense on it, for it is a meal offering of jealousies, a meal offering of remembrance, recalling iniquity. Bamidbar 5:15


+ 66 The kohen shall bring her forth and present her before the Lord. Bamidbar 5:16


+ 67 The kohen shall take holy water in an earthen vessel, and some earth from the Mishkan floor, the kohen shall take and put it into the water. Bamidbar 5:17

+ 99 The kohen shall then place her under oath, and say to the woman, If no man has lain with you and you have not gone astray to become defiled to another in place of your husband, then you will be absolved through these bitter waters which cause the curse. Bamidbar 5:19


+ 97 The kohen shall now adjure the woman with the oath of the curse, and the kohen shall say to the woman, May the Lord make you for a curse and an oath among your people, when the Lord causes your thigh to rupture and your belly to swell. Bamidbar 5:21


+ 73 The man shall be absolved of iniquity, and the woman shall bear her iniquity. Bamidbar 5:31


+ 57 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 6:1


+ 77 And on the eighth day, he shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons to the kohen, at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 6:10


+ 112 The kohen shall prepare one for a sin offering and one for a burnt offering and atone on his behalf for sinning by coming into contact with the dead, and he shall sanctify his head on that day. Bamidbar 6:11


+ 101 He shall consecrate to the Lord the period of his abstinence and bring a lamb in its first year as a guilt offering; the previous days shall be canceled because his naziriteship has been defiled. Bamidbar 6:12

+ 95 The kohen shall then take the cooked foreleg of the ram, one unleavened loaf from the basket and one unleavened wafer, place them in the hands of the nazirite after he has shaven off his nazirite head. Bamidbar 6:19


+ 87 This is the law of a nazirite who makes a vow: his offering to the Lord for his naziriteship is in addition to what is within his means. According to the vow that he vows, so shall he do, in addition to the law of his naziriteship. Bamidbar 6:21

+ 88 The Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, and make one as a sin offering and one as a burnt offering to the Lord, to atone for the Levites. Bamidbar 8:12


+ 61 You shall present the Levites before Aaron and his sons, and lift them as a waving before the Lord. Bamidbar 8:13


+ 79 Thus shall you set apart the Levites from the midst of the children of Israel, and the Levites shall become Mine. Bamidbar 8:14


+ 76 Following this, the Levites shall come to serve in the Tent of Meeting. You shall cleanse them and lift them as a waving. Bamidbar 8:15


+ 104 For they are wholly given over to Me from among the children of Israel; instead of those that open the womb all the firstborn of Israel I have taken them for Myself. Bamidbar 8:16

+ 92 They shall not leave over anything from it until the next morning, and they shall not break any of its bones. They shall make it in accordance with all the statutes connected with the Passover sacrifice. Bamidbar 9:12


+ 96 But the man who was ritually clean and was not on a journey, yet refrained from making the Passover sacrifice, his soul shall be cut off from his people, for he did not bring the offering of the Lord in its appointed time; that person shall bear his sin. Bamidbar 9:13

+ 73 Sometimes the cloud remained from evening until morning, and when the cloud departed in the morning, they traveled. Or, the cloud remained for a day and a night, and when the cloud departed, they traveled. Bamidbar 9:21


+ 66 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 10:1


+ 90 Make yourself two silver trumpets; you shall make them from a beaten form; they shall be used by you to summon the congregation and to announce the departure of the camps. Bamidbar 10:2


+ 75 When they blow on them, the entire congregation shall assemble to you, at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 10:3

+ 87 When you blow a teruah [a series of short blasts, the camps which are encamped to the east shall travel. Bamidbar 10:5


+ 77 When you blow a second teruah, the camps encamped to the south shall travel; they shall blow a teruah for traveling. Bamidbar 10:6


+ 75 But when assembling the congregation, you shall blow a tekiah [long blast] but not a teruah. Bamidbar 10:7


+ 68 The descendants of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets; this shall be an eternal statute for your generations. Bamidbar 10:8


+ 86 If you go to war in your land against an adversary that oppresses you, you shall blow a teruah with the trumpets and be remembered before the Lord your God, and thus be saved from your enemies. Bamidbar 10:9


+ 77 On the days of your rejoicing, on your festivals and on your new-moon celebrations, you shall blow on the trumpets for your ascent-offerings and your peace sacrifices, and it shall be a remembrance before your God; I am the Lord your God. Bamidbar 10:10


+ 78 On the twentieth of the second month in the second year, the cloud rose up from over the Tabernacle of the Testimony. Bamidbar 10:11


+ 76 The children of Israel traveled on their journeys from the Sinai desert, and the cloud settled in the desert of Paran. Bamidbar 10:12

+ 74 He said to him, I won't go, for I will go to my land and my birthplace. Bamidbar 10:30


+ 88 He said, Please don't leave us, for because you are familiar with our encampments in the desert and you will be our guide. Bamidbar 10:31


+ 62 And if you go with us, then we will bestow on you the good which God grants us. Bamidbar 10:32


+ 69 They traveled a distance of three days from the mountain of the Lord, and the Ark of the Lord's covenant traveled three days ahead of them to seek for them a place to settle. Bamidbar 10:33


+ 67 The cloud of the Lord was above them by day, when they traveled from the camp. Bamidbar 10:34


+ 91 So it was, whenever the ark set out, Moses would say, Arise, O Lord, may Your enemies be scattered and may those who hate You flee from You. Bamidbar 10:35


+ 69 And when it came to rest he would say, Repose O Lord, among the myriads of thousands of Israel. Bamidbar 10:36


+ 81 The people were looking to complain, and it was evil in the ears of the Lord. The Lord heard and His anger flared, and a fire from the Lord burned among them, consuming the extremes of the camp. Bamidbar 11:1


+ 73 The people cried out to Moses; Moses prayed to the Lord, and the fire died down. Bamidbar 11:2


+ 68 He named that place Tab'erah, for the fire of the Lord had burned among them there. Bamidbar 11:3

+ 99 We remember the fish that we ate in Egypt free of charge, the cucumbers, the watermelons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. Bamidbar 11:5


+ 83 But now, our bodies are dried out, for there is nothing at all; we have nothing but manna to look at. Bamidbar 11:6


+ 67 Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its appearance was like the appearance of crystal. Bamidbar 11:7


+ 108 The people walked about and gathered it. Then they ground it in a mill or crushed it in a mortar, cooked it in a pot and made it into cakes. It had a taste like the taste of oil cake. Bamidbar 11:8


+ 64 When the dew descended on the camp at night, the manna would descend upon it. Bamidbar 11:9


+ 92 Moses heard the people weeping with their families,each one at the entrance to his tent. The Lord became very angry, and Moses considered it evil. Bamidbar 11:10


+ 95 Moses said to the Lord, "Why have You treated Your servant so badly? Why have I not found favor in Your eyes that You place the burden of this entire people upon me? Bamidbar 11:11


+ 84 Did I conceive this entire people? Did I give birth to them, that You say to me, Carry them in your bosom as the nurse carries the suckling, to the Land You promised their forefathers? Bamidbar 11:12


+ 69 Where can I get meat to give all these people? For they are crying on me, saying, Give us meat to eat. Bamidbar 11:12


+ 71 Alone I cannot carry this entire people for it is too hard for me. Bamidbar 11:13


+ 68 Alone I cannot carry this entire people for it is too hard for me. Bamidbar 11:14


+ 92 If this is the way You treat me, please kill me if I have found favor in Your eyes, so that I not see my misfortune. Bamidbar 11:15


+ 92 Then the Lord said to Moses, Assemble for Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the people's elders and officers, and you shall take them to the Tent of Meeting, and they shall stand there with You. Bamidbar 11:16


+ 78 I will come down and speak with you there, and I will increase the spirit that is upon you and bestow it upon them. Then they will bear the burden of the people with you so that you need not bear it alone. Bamidbar 11:17


+ 85 And to the people, you shall say, Prepare yourselves for tomorrow and you shall eat meat, because you have cried in the ears of the Lord saying, Who will feed us meat, for we had it better in Egypt. Therefore, the Lord will give you meat, and you shall eat. Bamidbar 11:18


+ 74 You shall eat it not one day, not two days, not five days, not ten days, and not twenty days. Bamidbar 11:19


+ 111 But even for a full month until it comes out your nose and nauseates you. Because you have despised the Lord Who is among you, and you cried before Him, saying, Why did we ever leave Egypt? Bamidbar 11:20


+ 81 Moses said, Six hundred thousand people on foot are the people in whose midst I am, and You say, I will give them meat, and they will eat it for a full month? Bamidbar 11:21


+ 78 If sheep and cattle were slaughtered for them, would it suffice for them? If all the fish of the sea were gathered for them, would it suffice for them? Bamidbar 11:22


+ 82 Then the Lord said to Moses, Is My power limited? Now you will see if My word comes true for you or not! Bamidbar 11:23


+ 72 Moses went out and told the people what the Lord had said, and he assembled seventy men of the elders of the people, and stood them around the Tent. Bamidbar 11:24


+ 104 The Lord descended in a cloud and spoke to him, and He increased some of the spirit that was on him and bestowed it on the seventy elders. And when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, but they did not continue. Bamidbar 11:25


+ 99 Now two men remained in the camp; the name of one was Eldad and the name of the second was Medad, and the spirit rested upon them. They were among those written, but they did not go out to the tent, but prophesied in the camp. Bamidbar 11:26


+ 84 The lad ran and told Moses, saying, Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp! Bamidbar 11:27


+ 89 Joshua the son of Nun, Moses servant from his youth, answered and said, Moses, my master, imprison them! Bamidbar 11:28


+ 83 Moses said to him, Are you zealous for my sake? If only all the Lord's people were prophets, that the Lord would bestow His spirit upon them! Bamidbar 11:29


+ 75 Then Moses entered the camp; he and the elders of Israel. Bamidbar 11:30


+ 95 A wind went forth from the Lord and swept quails from the sea and spread them over the camp about one day's journey this way and one day's journey that way, around the camp, about two cubits above the ground. Bamidbar 11:31


+ 82 The people rose up all that day and all night and the next day and gathered the quails. Even the one who gathered the least collected ten heaps. They spread them around the camp in piles. Bamidbar 11:32


+ 91 The meat was still between their teeth; it was not yet finished, and the anger of the Lord flared against the people, and the Lord struck the people with a very mighty blow. Bamidbar 11:33


+ 80 He named that place Kivroth Hata'avah Graves of Craving, for there they buried the people who craved. Bamidbar 11:34


+ 79 From Kivroth Hata'avah the people traveled to Hazeroth, and they stayed in Hazeroth. Bamidbar 11:35


+ 69 Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses regarding the Cushite woman he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman. Bamidbar 12:1


+ 63 They said, Has the Lord spoken only to Moses? Hasn't He spoken to us too? And the Lord heard. Bamidbar 12:2


+ 67 Now this man Moses was exceedingly humble, more so than any person on the face of the earth. Bamidbar 12:3


+ 62 The Lord suddenly said to Moses, Aaron and Miriam, Go out, all three of you, to the Tent of Meeting! And all three went out. Bamidbar 12:4


+ 73 The Lord descended in a pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance of the Tent. He called to Aaron and Miriam, and they both went out. Bamidbar 12:5


+ 81 He said, "Please listen to My words. If there be prophets among you, I the Lord will make Myself known to him in a vision; I will speak to him in a dream. Bamidbar 12:6


+ 79 Not so is My servant Moses; he is faithful throughout My house. Bamidbar 12:7


+ 86 With him I speak mouth to mouth; in a vision and not in riddles, and he beholds the image of the Lord. So why were you not afraid to speak against My servant Moses ? Bamidbar 12:8


+ 65 The wrath of the Lord flared against them and He left. Bamidbar 12:9


+ 80 The cloud departed from above the Tent, and behold, Miriam was afflicted with tzara'ath, as white as snow. Then Aaron turned to Miriam and behold, she was afflicted with tzara'ath. Bamidbar 12:10


+ 75 Aaron said to Moses, Please, master, do not put sin upon us for acting foolishly and for sinning. Bamidbar 12:11


+ 65 Let her not be like the dead, which comes out of his mother's womb with half his flesh consumed! Bamidbar 12:12


+ 77 Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, I beseech you, God, please heal her. Bamidbar 12:14


+ 94 The Lord replied to Moses, If her father were to spit in her face, would she not be humiliated for seven days? She shall be confined for seven days outside the camp, and afterwards she may enter. Bamidbar 12:15


+ 75 So Miriam was confined outside the camp for seven days, and the people did not travel until Miriam had entered. Bamidbar 12:15


+ 70 Then the people departed from Hazeroth, and they camped in the desert of Paran. Bamidbar 12:16


+ 70 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 13:1


+ 82 Send out for yourself men who will scout the Land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel. You shall send one man each for his father's tribe; each one shall be a chieftain in their midst. Bamidbar 13:2


+ 86 So Moses sent them from the desert of Paran by the word of the Lord. All of them were men of distinction; they were the heads of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 13:3


+ 65 These are their names: For the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zakkur. Bamidbar 13:4


+ 68 For the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori. Bamidbar 13:5


+ 62 For the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jepphunneh. Bamidbar 13:6


+ 67 For the tribe of Issachar, Yigal the son of Joseph. Bamidbar 13:7


+ 70 For the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea the son of Nun. Bamidbar 13:8


+ 70 For the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu. Bamidbar 13:9


+ 61 For the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi. Bamidbar 13:10


+ 68 For the tribe of Joseph, the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi the son of Susi. Bamidbar 13:11


+ 84 For the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli. Bamidbar 13:12


+ 65 For the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael. Bamidbar 13:13


+ 56 For the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi. Bamidbar 13:14


+ 69 For the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi. Bamidbar 13:15


+ 87 These are the names of the men Moses sent to scout the Land, and Moses called Hoshea the son of Nun, Joshua. Bamidbar 13:16


+ 97 Moses sent them to scout the Land of Canaan, and he said to them, Go up this way in the south and climb up the mountain. Bamidbar 13:17


+ 89 You shall see what kind of land it is, and the people who inhabit it; are they strong or weak? Are there few or many? Bamidbar 13:18


+ 75 And what of the land they inhabit? Is it good or bad? And what of the cities in which they reside are they in camps or in fortresses? Bamidbar 13:19


+ 87 What is the soil like is it fat or lean? Are there any trees in it or not? You shall be courageous and take from the fruit of the land." It was the season when the first grapes begin to ripen. Bamidbar 13:20


+ 58 So they went up and explored the land, from the desert of Zin until Rehov, at the entrance to Hamath. Bamidbar 13:21


+ 68 They went up in, the south, and he came to Hebron, and there were Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the descendants of the giant. Now Hebron had been built seven years before Zoan of Egypt. Bamidbar 13:22


+ 89 They came to the Valley of Eshkol and they cut a branch with a cluster of grapes. They carried it on a pole between two [people] and [they also took] some pomegranates and figs. Bamidbar 13:23


+ 80 They called that place the Valley of Eshkol because of the cluster [eshkol] the children of Israel cut from there. Bamidbar 13:24


+ 68 They returned from scouting the Land at the end of forty days. Bamidbar 13:25


+ 94 They went, and they came to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the desert of Paran, to Kadesh. They brought them back a report, as well as to the entire congregation, and they showed them the fruit of the land. Bamidbar 13:26


+ 78 They told him and said, "We came to the land to which you sent us, and it is flowing with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. Bamidbar 13:27


+ 78 However, the people who inhabit the land are mighty, and the cities are extremely huge and fortified, and there we saw even the offspring of the giant. Bamidbar 13:28


+ 90 The Amalekites dwell in the south land, while the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountainous region. The Canaanites dwell on the coast and alongside the Jordan." Bamidbar 13:29


+ 95 Caleb silenced the people to [hear about] Moses, and he said, "We can surely go up and take possession of it, for we can indeed overcome it." Bamidbar 13:30


+ 66 But the men who went up with him said, "We are unable to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we. Bamidbar 13:31


+ 91 They spread an evil report about the land which they had scouted, telling the children of Israel, The land we passed through to explore is a land that consumes its inhabitants, and all the people we saw in it are men of stature. Bamidbar 13:32


+ 81 There we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, descended from the giants. In our eyes, we seemed like grasshoppers, and so we were in their eyes. Bamidbar 13:33


+ 66 The entire community raised their voices and shouted, and the people wept on that night. Bamidbar 14:1


+ 90 All the children of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron, and the entire congregation said, "If only we had died in the land of Egypt, or if only we had died in this desert. Bamidbar 14:2


+ 105 Why does the Lord bring us to this land to fall by the sword; our wives and children will be as spoils. Is it not better for us to return to Egypt? Bamidbar 14:3


+ 65 They said to each other, Let us appoint a leader and return to Egypt! Bamidbar 14:4


+ 73 Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before the entire congregation of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 14:5


+ 76 Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had scouted the land, tore their clothes. Bamidbar 14:6


+ 80 They spoke to the entire congregation of the children of Israel, saying, The land we passed through to scout is an exceedingly good land. Bamidbar 14:7


+ 76 If the Lord desires us, He will bring us to this land and give it to us, a land flowing with milk and honey. Bamidbar 14:8


+ 69 But you shall not rebel against the Lord, and you will not fear the people of that land for they are as our bread. Their protection is removed from them, and the Lord is with us; do not fear them. Bamidbar 14:9


+ 75 The entire congregation threatened to pelt them with stones, but the glory of the Lord appeared in the Tent of Meeting to all the children of Israel. Bamidbar 14:10


+ 71 The Lord said to Moses, How long will this people provoke Me? How much longer will they not believe in Me after all the signs I have performed in their midst? Bamidbar 14:11


+ 70 I will strike them with a plague and annihilate them; then I will make you into a nation, greater and stronger than they. Bamidbar 14:12


+ 81 Moses said to the Lord, But the Egyptians will hear that You have brought this nation out from its midst with great power. Bamidbar 14:13


+ 92 They will say about the inhabitants of this land, who have heard that You, O Lord, are in the midst of this people; that You, the Lord, appear to them eye to eye and that Your cloud rests over them. And You go before them with a pillar of cloud by day and with a pillar of fire by night, Bamidbar 14:14


+ 65 And if You kill this nation like one man, the nations who have heard of Your reputation will say as follows: Bamidbar 14:15


+ 54 Since the Lord lacked the ability to bring this nation to the Land which He swore to them, He slaughtered them in the desert. Bamibdar 14:16


+ 77 Now, please, let the strength of the Lord be increased, as You spoke, saying. Bamidbar 14:17


+ 90 'The Lord is slow to anger and abundantly kind, forgiving iniquity and transgression, Who cleanses some and does not cleanse [others], Who visits the iniquities of parents on children, even to the third and fourth generations.' Bamidbar 14:18


+ 88 Please forgive the iniquity of this nation in accordance with your abounding kindness, as You have borne this people from Egypt until now." Bamidbar 14:19


+ 80 And the Lord said, I have forgiven them in accordance with your word. Bamidbar 14:21


+ 67 However, as surely as I live, and as the glory of the Lord fills the earth... Bamidbar 14:22


+ 89 That all the people who perceived My glory, and the signs that I performed in Egypt and in the desert, yet they have tested me these ten times and not listened to My voice, Bamidbar 13:22


+ 66 If they will see the Land that I swore to their fathers, and all who provoked Me will not see it. Bamidbar 13:23


+ 90 But as for My servant Caleb, since he was possessed by another spirit, and he followed Me, I will bring him to the land to which he came, and his descendants will drive its inhabitants out. Bamidbar 13:24


+ 69 The Amalekites and the Canaanites dwell in the valley. Tomorrow, turn back and journey into the desert toward the Red Sea." Bamidbar 13:25


+ 70 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, Bamidbar 13:26


+ 102 How much longer will this evil congregation who are causing to complain against Me exist? The complaints of the children of Israel which they caused them to complain against Me, I have heard. Bamidbar 13:27


+ 82 Say to them, As I live, says the Lord, if not as you have spoken in My ears, so will I do to you. Bamidbar 13:28


+ 86 In this desert, your corpses shall fall; your entire number, all those from the age of twenty and up, who were counted, because you complained against Me. Bamidbar 13:29


+ 83 You shall not come into the Land concerning which I raised My hand that you would settle in it, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun. Bamidbar 13:30


+ 76 As for your infants, of whom you said that they will be as spoils, I will bring them there, and they will come to know the Land which You despised. Bamidbar 13:31


+ 67 But as for you, your corpses shall fall in this desert. Bamidbar 13:32


+ 86 Your children shall wander in the desert for forty years and bear your defection until the last of your corpses has fallen in the desert. Bamidbar 13:33


+ 95 According to the number of days which you toured the Land forty days, a day for each year, you will thus bear your iniquities for forty years; thus you will come to know My alienation. Bamidbar 13:34


+ 72 I, the Lord, have spoken if I will not do this to the entire evil congregation who have assembled against me; in this desert they will end, and there they will die. Bamidbar 13:35


+ 95 As for the men whom Moses had sent to scout the Land, who returned and caused the entire congregation to complain against him by spreading report about the Land. Bamidbar 14:36


+ 65 The men who spread an evil report about the Land died in the plague, before the Lord. Bamidbar 14:37


+ 78 But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh remained alive of the men who went to tour the Land. Bamidbar 14:38


+ 85 Moses related all these words to the children of Israel, and the people mourned greatly. Bamidbar 14:39


+ 81 They arose early in the morning and ascended to the mountain top, saying, We are ready to go up to the place of which the Lord spoke, for we have sinned. Bamidbar 14:40


+ 84 Moses said, Why do you transgress the word of the Lord? It will not succeed. Bamidbar 14:41


+ 69 Do not go up, for the Lord is not among you, so that you will not be beaten by your enemies. Bamidbar 14:42


+ 79 For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and you will fall by the sword. For you have turned away from the Lord, and the Lord will not be with you. Bamidbar 14:43


+ 73 They defiantly ascended to the mountain top, but the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord and Moses did not move from the camp. Bamidbar 14:44


+ 77 The Amalekites and the Canaanites who lived on the mountain came down and smote them and crushed them until Hormah. Bamidbar 14:45


+ 56 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 15:1


+ 72 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you arrive in the Land of your dwelling place, which I am giving you, Bamidbar 15:2


+ 97 And you make a fire offering to the Lord, a burnt offering or a sacrifice namely a peace offering, for an expressed vow or for a voluntary offering or on your festivals, to provide a pleasing fragrance for the Lord, from the cattle or from the sheep. Bamidbar 15:3


+ 73 The one who brings his offering to the Lord shall present a meal offering containing one tenth fine flour mixed with a quarter of a hin of oil. Bamidbar 15:4


+ 70 And a quarter of a hin of wine for a libation, you shall prepare with the burnt offering or for the sacrifice, for each lamb. Bamidbar 15:5


+ 71 Or for a ram, you shall present a meal offering containing two tenths fine flour mixed with a third of a hin of oil. Bamidbar 15:6


+ 68 And a third of a hin of wine for a libation; you shall offer up, a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 15:7


+ 67 If you prepare a young bull as a burnt offering or sacrifice by expressing a vow, or for a peace offering for the Lord, Bamidbar 15:8


+ 63 With the young bull he shall offer up a meal offering consisting of three tenths fine flour mixed with half a hin of oil. Bamidbar 15:9


+ 59 And you shall offer half a hin of wine for a libation, a fire offering of pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 15:10


+ 58 So shall it be done for each ox or ram, or for a young sheep or young goat. Bamidbar 15:11


+ 68 In accordance with the number you offer up, so shall you present for each one, according to their numbers. Bamidbar 15:12


+ 60 Every native born shall do it in this manner, to offer up a fire offering of pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 15:13


+ 68 If a proselyte resides with you, or those among you in future generations, and he offers up a fire offering of pleasing fragrance to the Lord, as you make it, so shall he make it. Bamidbar 15:15


+ 66 One rule applies to the assembly, for yourselves and for the proselyte who resides with you; one rule applies throughout your generations just as it is for you, so it is for the proselyte, before the Lord. Bamidbar 15:16


+ 57 There shall be one law and one ordinance for you and the proselyte who resides with you. Bamidbar 15:16


+ 55 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 15:17


+ 60 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them, When you arrive in the Land to which I am bringing you, Bamidbar 15:18


+ 67 And you eat from the bread of the Land, you shall set aside a gift for the Lord. Bamidbar 15:19


+ 59 The first portion of your dough, you shall separate a loaf for a gift; as in the case of the gift of the threshing floor, so shall you separate it. Bamidbar 15:20


+ 64 From the first portion of your dough you shall give a gift to the Lord in all your generations. Bamidbar 15:21


+ 67 And if you should err and not fulfill all these commandments, which the Lord spoke to Moses. Bamidbar 15:22


+ 49 All that the Lord commanded you through Moses, from the day on which the Lord commanded and from then on, for all generations. Bamidbar 15:23


+ 69 If because of the eyes of the congregation it was committed inadvertently, the entire congregation shall prepare a young bull as a burnt offering for a pleasing fragrance for the Lord, with its prescribed meal offering and libation, and one young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 15:24


+ 54 The kohen shall atone on behalf of the entire congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them, for it was an error, and they have brought their offering as a fire offering to the Lord and their sin offering before the Lord because of their error. Bamidbar 15:25


+ 79 The entire congregation of the children of Israel and the proselyte who resides with them shall be forgiven, for all the people were in error. Bamidbar 15:26


+ 53 But if an individual sins inadvertently, he shall offer up a she goat in its first year as a sin offering. Bamidbar 15:27


+ 51 And the kohen shall atone for the erring soul which sinned inadvertently before the Lord, so as to atone on his behalf, and it shall be forgiven him. Bamidbar 15:28


+ 76 One law shall apply to anyone who sins inadvertently from the native born of the children of Israel and the proselyte who resides among them. Bamidbar 15:29


+ 71 But if a person should act highhandedly, whether he is a native born or a proselyte, he is blaspheming the Lord, and that soul shall be cut off from among its people. Bamidbar 15:30


+ 73 For he has scorned the word of the Lord and violated His commandment; that soul shall be utterly cut off for its iniquity is upon it. Bamidbar 15:31


+ 62 Those who found him gathering wood presented him before Moses and Aaron and before the entire congregation. Bamidbar 15:33


+ 65 They put him under guard, since it was not specified what was to be done to him. Bamidbar 15:34


+ 80 The Lord said to Moses, The man shall be put to death; the entire congregation shall pelt him with stones outside the camp. Bamidbar 15:35


+ 87 So the entire congregation took him outside the camp, and they pelted him to death with stones, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 15:36


+ 56 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 15:37


+ 67 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them that they shall make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations, and they shall affix a thread of sky blue wool on the fringe of each corner. Bamidbar 15:38


+ 66 This shall be fringes for you, and when you see it, you will remember all the commandments of the Lord to perform them, and you shall not wander after your hearts and after your eyes after which you are going astray. Bamidbar 15:39


+ 59 So that you shall remember and perform all My commandments and you shall be holy to your God. Bamidbar 15:40


+ 53 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt to be your God; I am the Lord, your God. Bamidbar 15:41


+ 70 Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi took himself to one side along with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, descendants of Reuben. Bamidbar 16:1


+ 76 They confronted Moses together with two hundred and fifty men from the children of Israel, chieftains of the congregation, representatives of the assembly, men of repute. Bamidbar 16:2


+ 71 They assembled against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, "You take too much upon yourselves, for the entire congregation are all holy, and the Lord is in their midst. So why do you raise yourselves above the Lord's assembly?" Bamidbar 16:3


+ 62 Moses heard and fell on his face. Bamidbar 16:4


+ 57 He spoke to Korah and to all his company, saying, "In the morning, the Lord will make known who is His, and who is holy, and He will draw them near to Him, and the one He chooses, He will draw near to Him. Bamidbar 16:5


+ 57 Do this, Korah and his company: Take for yourselves censers. Bamidbar 16:6


+ 72 Place fire into them and put incense upon them before the Lord tomorrow, and the man whom the Lord chooses he is the holy one; you have taken too much upon yourselves, sons of Levi." Bamidbar 16:7


+ 57 Moses said to Korah, "Please listen, sons of Levi. Bamidbar 16:8


+ 69 Is it not enough that the God of Israel has distinguished you from the congregation of Israel to draw you near to Him, to perform the service in the Mishkan of the Lord and to stand before the congregation to minister to them? Bamidbar 16:9


+ 68 He drew you near, and all your brothers, the sons of Levi with you, and now you seek the kehunah as well? Bamidbar 16:10


+ 81 Therefore, you and your entire company who are assembled are against the Lord, for what is Aaron that you should complain against him?" Bamidbar 16:11


+ 71 Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, but they said, "We will not go up. Bamidbar 16:12


+ 73 Is it not enough that you have brought us out of a land flowing with milk and honey to kill us in the desert, that you should also exercise authority over us? Bamidbar 16:13


+ 72 You have not even brought us to a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Even if you gouge out the eyes of those men, we will not go up." Bamidbar 16:14


+ 77 Moses was exceedingly distressed, and he said to the Lord, "Do not accept their offering. I have not taken a donkey from a single one of them, and I have not harmed a single one of them." Bamidbar 16:15


+ 55 Moses said to Korah, You and your entire congregation should be before the Lord you, they, and Aaron tomorrow. Bamidbar 16:16


+ 57 Let each man take his censer and place incense upon it, and let each man present his censer before the Lord; there will thus be two hundred and fifty censers, and let you and Aaron each take his censer. Bamidbar 16:17


+ 67 So each man took his censer, and they put fire upon it and placed incense upon it, and they stood at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting with Moses and Aaron. Bamidbar 16:18


+ 57 Korah assembled all the congregation against them at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord appeared before the entire congregation. Bamidbar 16:19


+ 54 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron saying, Bamidbar 16:21


+ 65 Dissociate yourselves from this congregation, and I will consume them in an instant. Bamidbar 16:22


+ 76 They fell on their faces and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, if one man sins, shall You be angry with the whole congregation? Bamidbar 16:22


+ 68 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 16:23


+ 71 Speak to the congregation saying, Withdraw from the dwelling of Korah, Dathan and Abiram. Bamidbar 16:24


+ 70 Moses arose and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel followed him. Bamidbar 16:25


+ 74 He spoke to the congregation saying, Please get away from the tents of these wicked men, and do not touch anything of theirs, lest you perish because of all their sins. Bamidbar 16:26


+ 78 So they withdrew from around the dwelling of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, and Dathan and Abiram went out standing upright at the entrance of their tents together with their wives, their children, and their infants. Bamidbar 16:27


+ 65 Moses said, With this you shall know that the Lord sent me to do all these deeds, for I did not devise them myself. Bamidbar 16:28


+ 61 If these men die as all men die and the fate of all men will be visited upon them, then the Lord has not sent me. Bamidbar 16:29


+ 78 But if the Lord creates a creation, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them and all that is theirs, and they descend alive into the grave, you will know that these men have provoked the Lord. Bamidbar 16:30


+ 65 As soon as he finished speaking all these words, the earth beneath them split open. Bamidbar 16:31


+ 70 The earth beneath them opened its mouth and swallowed them and their houses, and all the men who were with Korah and all the property. Bamidbar 16:32


+ 59 They, and all they possessed, descended alive into the grave; the earth covered them up, and they were lost to the assembly. Bamidbar 16:33


+ 57 All Israel who were around them fled from their cries, for they said, "Lest the earth swallow us up too!" Bamidbar 16:34


+ 53 A fire came forth from the Lord and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who had offered up the incense. Bamidbar 16:35


+ 62 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:1


+ 69 Say to Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen that he should pick up the censers from the burned area but throw the fire away, because they have become sanctified, Bamidbar 17:2


+ 72 The censers of these who sinned at the cost of their lives, and they shall make them into flattened out plates as an overlay for the altar, for they brought them before the Lord, and have therefore become sanctified, and they shall be as a reminder for the children of Israel. Bamidbar 17:3


+ 77 So Eleazar the kohen took the copper censers which the fire victims had brought, and they hammered them out as an overlay for the altar, Bamidbar 17:4


+ 73 As a reminder for the children of Israel, so that no outsider, who is not of the seed of Aaron, shall approach to burn incense before the Lord, so as not to be like Korah and his company, as the Lord spoke regarding him through the hand of Moses. Bamidbar 17:5


+ 68 The following day, the entire congregation of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron saying, "You have killed the people of the Lord." Bamidbar 17:6


+ 64 It came to pass while the congregation were assembled against Moses and Aaron, that they turned to the Tent of Meeting, and behold, the cloud had covered it, and the glory of the Lord appeared. Bamidbar 17:7


+ 72 Moses and Aaron came to the front of the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 17:8


+ 63 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:9


+ 71 Stand aside from this congregation, and I shall consume them in an instant. They fell on their faces. Bamidbar 17:10


+ 85 Moses said to Aaron, "Take the censer and put fire from the altar top into it and put incense. Then take it quickly to the congregation and atone for them, for wrath has gone forth from the Lord, and the plague has begun." Bamidbar 17:11


+ 80 Aaron took it, just as Moses had said, and he ran into the midst of the assembly, and behold, the plague had begun among the people. He placed the incense on it and atoned for the people. Bamidbar 17:12


+ 54 He stood between the dead and the living, and the plague ceased. Bamidbar 17:13


+ 72 The number of dead in the plague was fourteen thousand, seven hundred, besides those who died because of the matter of Korah. Bamidbar 17:14


+ 62 Aaron returned to Moses at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and the plague was checked. Bamidbar 17:15


+ 50 The Lord said to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:16


+ 80 Speak to the children of Israel and take from them a staff for each father's house from all the chieftains according to their father's houses; a total of twelve staffs, and inscribe each man's name on his staff. Bamidbar 17:17


+ 66 Inscribe Aaron's name on the staff of Levi, for there is only one staff for the head of their fathers' house. Bamidbar 17:18


+ 63 You shall place the staffs in the Tent of Meeting before the Ark of the Testimony where I commune with you. Bamidbar 17:19


+ 64 The staff of the man whom I will choose will blossom, and I will calm down turning away from Myself the complaints of the children of Israel which they are complaining against you. Bamidbar 17:20


+ 77 Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and all their chieftains gave him a staff for each chieftain according to their fathers' houses, a total of twelve staffs, and Aaron's staff was amidst their staffs. Bamidbar 17:21


+ 52 Moses placed the staffs before the Lord in the Tent of the Testimony. Bamidbar 17:22


+ 95 And on the following day Moses came to the Tent of Testimony, and behold, Aaron's staff for the house of Levi had blossomed! It gave forth blossoms, sprouted buds, and produced ripe almonds. Bamidbar 17:23


+ 63 Moses took out all the staffs from before the Lord, to the children of Israel; they saw and they took, each man his staff. Bamidbar 17:24


+ 72 The Lord said to Moses: Put Aaron's staff back in front of the Testimony as a keepsake and a sign for rebellious ones. Then their complaints against Me will end and they will not die. Bamidbar 17:25


+ 52 Moses did so. He did just as the Lord had commanded him. Bamidbar 17:26


+ 62 The children of Israel spoke to Moses saying, Behold, we are dying, we will perish, we are all lost! Bamidbar 17:27


+ 64 Whoever comes the closest to the Mishkan of the Lord dies! Have we been consigned to die? Bamidbar 17:28


+ 70 The Lord said to Aaron: You, your sons and your father's house shall bear the iniquity associated with the Sanctuary, and you and your sons with you shall bear the iniquity associated with your kehunah. Bamidbar 18:1


+ 51 Also your brethren, the tribe of Levi, your father's tribe, draw close to you, and they shall join you and minister to you, and you and your sons with you, before the Tent of Testimony. Bamidbar 18:2


+ 64 They shall keep your charge and the charge of the Tent, and they shall not approach the holy vessels or the altar, so that neither they nor you will die. Bamidbar 18:3


+ 67 They shall join you, and they shall keep the charge of the Tent of Meeting for all the service of the Tent, and no outsider shall come near you. Bamidbar 18:4


+ 57 They shall keep the charge of the Sanctuary and the charge of the altar, so that there be no more wrath against the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:5


+ 77 I have therefore taken your brethren, the Levites, from among the children of Israel; they are given to you as a gift, and given over to the Lord to perform the service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:6


+ 74 And you and your sons shall keep your kehunah in all matters concerning the altar, and concerning what is within the dividing screen, and you shall serve; the service as a gift I have given your kehunah, and any outsider non-kohen who approaches shall die. Bamidbar 18:7


+ 90 The Lord told Aaron: Behold I have given you the charge of My gift offerings. I have thus given you all the holy things of the children of Israel for distinction, and as an eternal portion for your sons. Bamidbar 18:8


+ 65 These shall be yours from the holiest of holies, from the fire: all their offerings, their meal-offerings, their sin-offerings, their guilt-offerings, and what they return to Me; they shall be holy of holies to you and to your sons. Bamidbar 18:9


+ 69 You shall eat it in the holiest of places. Any male may eat of it; it shall be holy to you. Bamidbar 18:10


+ 79 This shall be yours what is set aside for their gifts from all the wavings of the children of Israel; I have given them to you, and to your sons and to your daughters with you, as an eternal portion. Any ritually clean member of your household may eat it. Bamidbar 18:11


+ 57 The choice of the oil and the choice of the wine and grain, the first of which they give to the Lord, to you I have given them. Bamidbar 18:12


+ 69 The first fruit of all that grows in their land, which they shall bring to the Lord shall be yours; any ritually clean member of your household may eat of it. Bamidbar 18:13


+ 69 Any devoted thing in Israel shall be yours. Bamidbar 18:14


+ 81 Every first issue of the womb of any creature, which they present to the Lord, whether of man or beast, shall be yours. However, you shall redeem the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of unclean animals you shall redeem. Bamidbar 18:15


+ 73 Its redemption shall be performed from the age of a month, according to the valuation, five shekels of silver, according to the holy shekel, which is twenty gerahs. Bamidbar 18:16


+ 78 However, a firstborn ox or a firstborn sheep or a firstborn goat shall not be redeemed, for they are holy; their blood shall be sprinkled on the altar, and their fats shall be burned as a fire-offering, as a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 18:17


+ 58 Their flesh shall be yours; like the breast of the waving and the right thigh, it shall be yours. Bamidbar 18:18


+ 67 All the gifts of the holy offerings which are set aside by the children of Israel for the Lord I have given to you, and to your sons and daughters with you, as an eternal portion; it is like an eternal covenant of salt before the Lord, for you and your descendants with you. Bamidbar 18:19


+ 58 The Lord said to Aaron, You shall not inherit in their land, and you shall have no portion among them. I am your inheritance and portion among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:20


+ 68 And to the descendants of Levi, I have given all tithes of Israel as an inheritance, in exchange for their service which they perform-the service of the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:21


+ 61 The children of Israel shall therefore no longer approach the Tent of Meeting, lest they bear sin and die. Bamidbar 18:22


+ 75 The Levites shall perform the service of the Tent of Meeting, and they will bear their iniquity; it is an eternal statute for your generations, but among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. Bamidbar 18:23


+ 75 For the tithes of the children of Israel, which they shall set aside for the Lord as a gift, I have given to the Levites as an inheritance. Thus, I have said to them that they shall have no inheritance among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:24


+ 62 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 18:25


+ 83 Speak to the Levites and tell them, "When you take the tithe from the children of Israel which I have given you from them as your inheritance, you shall set aside from it a gift for the Lord, a tithe of the tithe. Bamidbar 18:26


+ 68 Your gift shall be considered for you as grain from the threshing-floor and as the produce of the vat. Bamidbar 18:27


+ 77 So shall you too set aside a gift for the Lord from all the tithes you take from the children of Israel, and you shall give thereof the Lord's gift to Aaron the priest. Bamidbar 18:28


+ 76 From all your gifts, you shall set aside every gift of the Lord, from its choicest portion, that part of it which is to be consecrated. Bamidbar 18:29


+ 86 Say to them, When you separate its choicest part, it shall be considered for the Levites as produce from the threshing-floor and as produce from the vat. Bamidbar 18:30


+ 74 You and your household may eat it anywhere, for it is your wage for you in exchange for your service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:31


+ 77 After you separate the choicest part from it, you shall not bear any sin on account of it, but you shall not profane the sacred offerings of the children of Israel, so that you shall not die. Bamidbar 18:32


+ 58 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: Bamidbar 19:1


+ 82 This is the statute of the Torah which the Lord commanded, saying, Speak to the children of Israel and have them take for you a perfectly red unblemished cow, upon which no yoke was laid. Bamidbar 19:2


+ 59 And you shall give it to Eleazar the kohen, and he shall take it outside the camp and slaughter it in his presence. Bamidbar 19:3


+ 71 Eleazar the kohen shall take from its blood with his finger and sprinkle it toward the front of the Tent of Meeting seven times. Bamidbar 19:4


+ 59 The cow shall then be burned in his presence; its hide, its flesh, its blood, with its dung he shall burn it. Bamidbar 19:5


+ 72 The kohen shall take a piece of cedar wood, hyssop, and crimson wool, and cast them into the burning of the cow. Bamidbar 19:6


+ 68 The kohen shall wash his garments and bathe his flesh in water, and then he may enter the camp, and the kohen shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:7


+ 66 The one who burns it shall wash his clothes in water and cleanse his body in water, and he shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:8


+ 79 A ritually clean person shall gather the cow's ashes and place them outside the camp in a clean place, and It shall be as a keepsake for the congregation of the children of Israel for sprinkling water, used for cleansing. Bamidbar 19:9


+ 90 The one who gathers the cow's ashes shall wash his clothes, and he shall be unclean until evening. It shall be an everlasting statute for the children of Israel and for the proselyte who resides in their midst. Bamidbar 19:10


+ 72 Anyone touching the corpse of a human soul shall become unclean for seven days. Bamidbar 19:11


+ 66 On the third and seventh days, he shall cleanse himself with it, so that he can become clean. But if he does not sprinkle himself with it on the third and seventh days, he shall not become clean. Bamidbar 19:12


+ 79 Whoever touches the corpse of a human soul which dies, and he does not cleanse himself, he has defiled the Mishkan of the Lord, and that soul shall be cut off from Israel. For the sprinkling water was not sprinkled on him, so he remains unclean, and his uncleanness remains upon him. Bamidbar 19:13


+ 68 This is the law: if a man dies in a tent, anyone entering the tent and anything in the tent shall be unclean for seven days. Bamidbar 19:14


+ 64 Any open vessel which has no seal fastened around it becomes unclean. Bamidbar 19:15


+ 78 Anyone who touches one slain by the sword, or a corpse, or a human bone or a grave, in an open field, he shall be unclean for seven days. Bamidbar 19:16


+ 59 They shall take for that unclean person from the ashes of the burnt purification offering, and it shall be placed in a vessel filled with spring water. Bamidbar 19:17


+ 72 A ritually clean person shall take the hyssop and dip it into the water and sprinkle it on the tent, on all the vessels, and on the people who were in it, and on anyone who touched the bone, the slain person, the corpse, or the grave. Bamidbar 19:18


+ 76 The ritually clean person shall sprinkle on the unclean person on the third day and on the seventh day, and he shall cleanse him on the seventh day, and he shall wash his clothes and bathe in water, and he shall become ritually clean in the evening. Bamidbar 19:19


+ 72 If a person becomes unclean and does not cleanse himself, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation, for he has defiled the Sanctuary of the Lord; the sprinkling waters were not sprinkled upon him. He is unclean. Bamidbar 19:20


+ 78 This shall be for them as a perpetual statute, and the one who sprinkles the sprinkling waters shall wash his clothes, and one who touches the sprinkling waters shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:21


+ 64 Whatever the unclean one touches shall become unclean, and anyone touching him shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:22


+ 76 The entire congregation of the children of Israel arrived at the desert of Zin in the first month, and the people settled in Kadesh. Miriam died there and was buried there. Bamidbar 20:1


+ 74 Moses and Aaron assembled the congregation in front of the rock, and he said to them, "Now listen, you rebels, can we draw water for you from this rock?" Bamidbar 20:10


+ 88 Moses raised his hand and struck the rock with his staff twice, when an abundance of water gushed forth, and the congregation and their livestock drank. Bamidbar 20:11


+ 79 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, "Since you did not have faith in Me to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly to the Land which I have given them. Bamidbar 20:12


+ 76 These are the waters of dispute Mei Meribah where the children of Israel contended with the Lord, and He was sanctified through them. Bamidbar 20:13


+ 69 Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom: "So says your brother, Israel, 'You know of all the hardship that has befallen us. Bamidbar 20:14


+ 70 Our fathers went down to Egypt, and we sojourned in Egypt for a long time. And the Egyptians mistreated us and our forefathers. Bamidbar 20:15


+ 54 We cried out to the Lord and He heard our voice. He sent an angel, and he took us out of Egypt, and now we are in Kadesh, a city on the edge of your border. Bamidbar 20:16


+ 76 Please let us pass through your land; we will not pass through fields or vineyards, nor will we drink well water. We will walk along the king's road, and we will turn neither to the right nor to the left until we have passed through your territory. Bamidbar 20:17


+ 64 Edom replied to him, "You shall not pass through me, lest I go out towards you with the sword!" Bamidbar 20:18


+ 82 The children of Israel said to him, "We will keep to the highway, and if we drink your water, either I or my cattle, we will pay its price. It is really nothing; I will pass through on foot." Bamidbar 20:19


+ 63 Edom refused to allow Israel to cross through his territory; so Israel turned away from him. Bamidbar 20:21


+ 73 The Canaanite king of Arad, who lived in the south, heard that Israel had come by the route of the spies, and he waged war against Israel and took from them a captive. Bamidbar 21:1


+ 58 Israel made a vow to the Lord, and said, "If You deliver this people into my hand, I shall consecrate their cities." Bamidbar 21:2


+ 72 The Lord heard Israel's voice and delivered the Canaanite. He destroyed them and consecrated their cities, and he called the place Hormah. Bamidbar 21:3


+ 75 They journeyed from Mount Hor by way of the Red Sea to circle the land of Edom, and the people became disheartened because of the way. Bamidbar 21:4


+ 70 The people spoke against God and against Moses, "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in this desert, for there is no bread and no water, and we are disgusted with this rotten bread." Bamidbar 21:5


+ 71 The Lord sent against the people the venomous snakes, and they bit the people, and many people of Israel died. Bamidbar 21:6


+ 70 The people came to Moses and said, "We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord that He remove the snakes from us." So Moses prayed on behalf of the people. Bamidbar 21:7


+ 65 The Lord said to Moses, Make yourself a serpent and put it on a pole, and let whoever is bitten look at it and live. Bamidbar 21:8


+ 64 Moses made a copper snake and put it on a pole, and whenever a snake bit a man, he would gaze upon the copper snake and live. Bamidbar 21:9


+ 59 The children of Israel journeyed on and camped in Oboth. Bamidbar 21:10


+ 75 They journeyed from Oboth and camped in the wasteland passes in the wilderness, which faced Moab, toward the rising sun. Bamidbar 21:11


+ 64 From there they journeyed, and they encamped along the stream of Zered. Bamidbar 21:12


+ 75 From there they journeyed, and they encamped on the other side of the Arnon, which was in the desert, extending from the Amorite border, for Arnon was the Moabite border between Moab and the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:13


+ 73 Concerning this it is told in the account of the Wars of the Lord, What He gave at the Sea of Reeds and the streams of Arnon. Bamidbar 21:14


+ 52 And the spilling of the streams that turned to settle at Ar and leaned toward the border of Moab. Bamidbar 21:15


+ 48 From there to the well; that is the well of which the Lord said to Moses, Gather the people, and I will give them water. Bamidbar 21:16


+ 57 Then Israel sang this song: Ascend, O well, sing to it! Bamidbar 21:17


+ 72 A well dug by princes, carved out by nobles of the people, through the lawgiver with their staffs, and from the desert, a gift. Bamidbar 21:18


+ 59 From the gift, to the streams, and from the streams to the heights. Bamidbar 21:19


+ 71 From the heights to the valley in the field of Moab, at the top of the peak, that overlooks the wastelands. Bamidbar 21:20


+ 61 Israel sent messengers to Sihon the king of the Amorites, saying: Bamidbar 21:21


+ 72 "Let me pass through your land. We will not turn into fields or vineyards, nor drink well water. We shall walk along the king's road, until we have passed through your territory." Bamidbar 21:22


+ 71 But Sihon did not permit Israel to pass through his territory, and Sihon gathered all his people and went out to the desert toward Israel. He arrived at Jahaz and fought against Israel. Bamidbar 21:23


+ 73 Israel smote him with the sword, and took possession of his land from Arnon to Jabbok, as far as the children of Ammon, for the border of the children of Ammon was strong. Bamidbar 21:24


+ 80 Israel took all these cities, and the Israelites dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon and all its villages. Bamidbar 21:25


+ 67 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon, king of the Amorites, and he had fought against the first king of Moab, taking all his land from his possession, as far as Arnon. Bamidbar 21:26


+ 70 Concerning this, those who speak in parables say, Come to Heshbon, may it be built and established as the city of Sihon. Bamidbar 21:27


+ 59 For fire went forth from Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon; it consumed Ar of Moab, the masters of the high places of Arnon. Bamidbar 21:28


+ 67 Woe is to you, Moab; you are lost, people of Chemosh. His sons he has given over as refugees and his daughters into captivity, to Sihon, king of the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:29


+ 79 Their kingdom is destroyed from Heshbon; it has been removed from Dibon; we laid them waste as far as Nophah which is near Medeba. Bamidbar 21:30


+ 61 Israel settled in the land of the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:31


+ 66 Moses sent men to spy out Jaazer and they captured its villages, driving out the Amorites who lived there. Bamidbar 21:32


+ 75 Then they turned and headed north toward the Bashan. Og, the king of Bashan, came out toward them with all his people, to wage war at Edrei. Bamidbar 21:33


+ 74 The Lord said to Moses, "Do not fear him, for I have delivered him, his people, and his land into your hand. You shall do to him as you did to Sihon the king of the Amorites who dwells in Heshbon. Bamidbar 21:34


+ 56 They smote him, his sons and all his people, until there was no survivor, and they took possession of his land. Bamidbar 21:35


+ 79 The children of Israel journeyed and encamped in the plains of Moab, across the Jordan from Jericho. Bamidbar 22:1


+ 62 Balaam said to God, Balak the son of Zippor the king of Moab has sent them to me, saying: Bamidbar 22:10


+ 75 Behold the people coming out of Egypt, a nation, has covered the 'eye' of the earth. Come and curse them for me, perhaps I will be able to fight against them and drive them out. Bamidbar 22:11


+ 62 God said to Balaam, You shall not go with them! You shall not curse the people because they are blessed. Bamidbar 22:12


+ 73 When Balaam arose in the morning, he said to Balak's nobles, Return to your country, for the Lord has refused to let me go with you. Bamidbar 22:13


+ 65 Moab's nobles arose and came to Balak and said, Balaam refuses to come with us. Bamidbar 22:14


+ 67 So Balak continued to send dignitaries, more and higher in rank than these. Bamidbar 22:15


+ 61 They came to Balaam and said to him, So said Balak the son of Zippor, Please do not hesitate to come to me. Bamidbar 22:16


+ 70 For I will honor you greatly and do whatever you tell me to do. So please come and curse this people for me. Bamidbar 22:17


+ 83 Balaam answered and said to Balak's servants, Even if Balak gives me a house full of silver and gold, I cannot do anything small or great that would transgress the word of the Lord, my God. Bamidbar 22:18


+ 74 Now, you too, please remain here overnight, and I will know what the Lord will continue to speak with me. Bamidbar 22:19


+ 78 In the morning Balaam arose, saddled his she-donkey and went with the Moabite dignitaries. Bamidbar 22:21


+ 82 The Lord opened Balaam's eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road, with a sword drawn in his hand. He bowed and prostrated himself on his face. Bamidbar 22:31


+ 73 And in the morning Balak took Balaam and led him up to Bamoth Baal, and from there he saw part of the people. Bamidbar 22:41


+ 77 Balaam said to Balak, "Build me seven altars here, and prepare for me seven bulls and seven rams." Bamidbar 23:1


+ 91 Who counted the dust of Jacob or the number of a fourth of or, of the seed of Israel? May my soul die the death of the upright and let my end be like his. Bamidbar 23:10


+ 75 Balak said to Balaam, What have you done to me? I took you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them! Bamidbar 23:11


+ 79 He answered, saying, What the Lord puts into my mouth that I must take care to say. Bamidbar 23:12


+ 78 Balak said to him, Come with me to another place from where you will see them; however, you will see only a part of them, not all of them and curse them for me from there. Bamidbar 23:13


+ 71 He took him to the field of the lookouts, to the peak of the mountain, and he built seven altars and offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. Bamidbar 23:14


+ 73 He said to Balak, Stand here next to your burnt offering and I will be chanced on here. Bamidbar 23:15


+ 78 The Lord chanced upon Balaam and placed something into his mouth. He said, Return to Balak and so you shall speak. Bamidbar 23:16


+ 70 When he came to him, he was standing next to his burnt offering, and the Moabite dignitaries were with him, and Balak said to him, What did the Lord speak? Bamidbar 23:17


+ 69 He took up his parable and said, Arise, Balak, and hear; listen closely to me, son of Zippor. Bamidbar 23:18


+ 66 God is not a man that He should lie, nor is He a mortal that He should relent. Would He say and not do, speak and not fulfill? Bamidbar 23:19


+ 95 He does not look at evil in Jacob, and has seen no perversity in Israel; the Lord, his God, is with him, and he has the King's friendship. Bamidbar 23:21


+ 82 Balaam saw that it pleased the Lord to bless Israel; so he did not go in search of omens as he had done time and time again, but turned his face toward the desert. Bamidbar 24:1


+ 85 Balak's anger flared against Balaam, and he clapped his hands. Balak said to Balaam, I called you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them these three times. Bamidbar 24:10
