7. It's those who are earlier than the others, those who put in more effort, who can enjoy the feelings of success.

+ 429 Do I really want to do a mobile game that's one of 300,000, where discoverability is everything? You really have to have a little more sizzle on the steak. I would rather be one of 100 apps for Google Glass than one of 300,000 for iOS and Android. Nolan Bushnell


+ 395 But the vast majority of books ever written are not accessible to anyone except the most tenacious researchers at premier academic libraries. Books written after 1923 quickly disappear into a literary black hole. Sergey Brin


+ 355 There has been a cultural shift. It is difficult to measure all that right now, but Chilean women have seen my presidency as a source of pride. Women are performing in jobs in Chile now that 20 or 30 years ago nobody would have dared to imagine. Michelle Bachelet

+ 328 What this country needs is a great poem. John Brown’s Body was a step in the right direction. I’ve read it once, and I’m reading it again. But it’s too long to do what I mean. You can’t thrill people in 300 pages... The limit is about 300 words. Kipling’s “Recessional” really did something to England when it was published. It helped them through a bad time. Let me know if you find any great poems lying around. Herbert Hoover


+ 340 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


+ 270 Don't forget what I discovered that over ninety percent of all national deficits from 1921 to 1939 were caused by payments for past, present, and future wars. Franklin D. Roosevelt

+ 274 I can only guess that, for guys in their 30s and 40s who watched me play, they understood that the score never mattered and my paycheck never mattered (in relation) to how I played. I played with Little League enthusiasm and professional flair. That's what fans are really looking for. Andy Van Slyke

+ 311 I met Woz when I was 13, at a friend's garage. He was about 18. He was, like, the first person I met who knew more electronics than I did at that point. We became good friends, because we shared an interest in computer and we had a sense of humor. We pulled all kinds of pranks together. Steve Jobs

+ 340 In the judgment of the most competent living mathematicians, Fraulein Noether was the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced since the higher education of women began. In the realm of algebra, in which the most gifted mathematicians have been busy for centuries, she discovered methods which have proved of enormous importance in the development of the present-day younger generation of mathematicians. Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas. Albert Einstein, New York Times, May 1, 1935


+ 375 The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend all to the happiness of man.

2. That there is a future state of rewards and punishments.
3. That to love God with all thy heart and thy neighbor as thyself, is the sum of religion. ~ Thomas Jefferson

+ 327 Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted, I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with lapis lazuli. I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones. All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace. Isaiah 54:11-13


+ 855 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.'

+ 454 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.

+ 286 A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual. (R.C. Henry, “The Mental Universe” ; Nature 436:29,2005)


+ 298 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.

+ 326 The mashiach will bring about the political and spiritual redemption of the Jewish people by bringing us back to Israel and restoring Jerusalem (Isaiah 11:11-12; Jeremiah 23:8; 30:3; Hosea 3:4-5). 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).


+ 326 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.

+ 380 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

+ 338 Rabbi Yochanan said to them: Go and see which is the best trait for a person to acquire. Said Rabbi Eliezer: A good eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: A good friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: A good neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To see what is born out of one's actions. Said Rabbi Elazar: A good heart. Said He to them: I prefer the words of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. He said to them: Go and see which is the worst trait, the one that a person should most distance himself from. Said Rabbi Eliezer: An evil eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: An evil friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: An evil neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To borrow and not to repay; for one who borrows from man is as one who borrows from the Almighty, as is stated, "The wicked man borrows and does not repay; but the righteous one is benevolent and gives" (Psalms 37:21). Said Rabbi Elazar: An evil heart. Said He to them: I prefer the word of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. Pirkei Avot 2:10


+ 355 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


+ 312 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


+ 297 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


+ 347 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


+ 317 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


+ 319 Be careful with the government, for they befriend a person only for their own needs. They appear to be friends when it is beneficial to them, but they do not stand by a person at the time of his distress. Pirkei Avot 2:3


+ 320 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


+ 308 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


+ 274 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


+ 326 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


+ 312 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


+ 299 Rabbi Chanina the son of Chachina'i would say: One who stays awake at night, or travels alone on the road, and turns his heart to idleness, has forfeited his life. Pirkei Avot 3:4


+ 292 Rabbi Nechunia the son of Hakanah would say: One who accepts upon himself the yoke of Torah is exempted from the yoke of government duties and the yoke of worldly cares; but one who casts off the yoke of Torah is saddled with the yoke of government duties and the yoke of worldly cares. Pirkei Avot 3:5


+ 336 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


+ 315 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


+ 364 Rabbi Dusta'i the son of Rabbi Yannai would say in the name of Rabbi Meir: Anyone who forgets even a single word of this learning, the Torah considers it as if he had forfeited his life. As is stated, "Just be careful, and verily guard your soul, lest you forget the things that your eyes have seen" (Deuteronomy 4:9). One might think that this applies also to one who has forgotten because his studies proved too difficult for him; but the verse goes on to tell us "and lest they be removed from your heart, throughout the days of your life." Hence, one does not forfeit his life unless he deliberately removes them from his heart. Pirkei Avot 3:8


+ 269 Rabbi Chanina the son of Dosa would say: One whose fear of sin takes precedence to his wisdom, his wisdom endures. But one whose wisdom takes precedence to his fear of sin, his wisdom does not endure. Pirkei Avot 3:9


+ 282 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


+ 316 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


+ 288 Rabbi Ishmael would say: Be yielding to a leader, affable to the black-haired, and receive every man with joy. Pirkei Avot 3:12


+ 295 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


+ 369 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


+ 289 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


+ 350 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


+ 342 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


+ 321 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


+ 274 He would also say: Do not scorn any man, and do not discount any thing. For there is no man who has not his hour, and no thing that has not its place. Pirkei Avot 4:3


+ 303 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


+ 337 With ten tests our father Abraham was tested and he withstood them all - in order to make known how great was our father Abraham's love for God. Pirkei Avot 5:3


+ 275 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


+ 324 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


+ 319 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


+ 344 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


+ 302 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


+ 325 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


+ 372 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


+ 311 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


+ 320 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.


+ 355 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?

+ 288 The Lord corrects those he loves, just as parents correct the child they delight in. Mishlei 3:12


+ 244 Happy is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gets understanding. Mishlei 3:13


+ 242 Wisdom is worth more than silver; it brings more profit than gold. Mishlei 3:14


+ 302 Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you could want is equal to it. Mishlei 3:15


+ 285 With her right hand wisdom offers you a long life, and with her left hand she gives you riches and honor. Mishlei 3:16


+ 256 Wisdom will make your life pleasant and will bring you peace. Mishlei 3:17


+ 257 As a tree produces fruit, wisdom gives life to those who use it, and everyone who uses it will be happy. Mishlei 3:18


+ 242 The Lord made the earth, using his wisdom. He set the sky in place, using his understanding. Mishlei 3:19


+ 240 With his knowledge, he made springs flow into rivers and the clouds drop rain on the earth. Mishlei 3:20


+ 267 My child, hold on to wisdom and good sense. Don’t let them out of your sight. Mishlei 3:21

+ 256 Then you will go your way in safety, and you will not get hurt. Mishlei 3:23


+ 231 When you lie down, you won’t be afraid; when you lie down, you will sleep in peace. Mishlei 3:24


+ 255 You won’t be afraid of sudden trouble; you won’t fear the ruin that comes to the wicked, Mishlei 3:25


+ 310 Because the Lord will keep you safe. He will keep you from being trapped. Mishlei 3:26


+ 261 Whenever you are able, do good to people who need help. Mishlei 3:27


+ 263 If you have what your neighbor asks for, don’t say, “Come back later. I will give it to you tomorrow.” Mishlei 3:28


+ 252 Don’t make plans to hurt your neighbor who lives nearby and trusts you. Mishlei 3:29


+ 361 Don’t accuse a person for no good reason; don’t accuse someone who has not harmed you. Mishlei 3:30


+ 213 Don’t be jealous of those who use violence, and don’t choose to be like them. Mishlei 3:31


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


+ 254 The Lord will curse the evil person’s house, but he will bless the home of those who do right. Mishlei 3:33


+ 247 The Lord laughs at those who laugh at him, but he gives grace to those who are not proud. Mishlei 3:34


+ 241 Wise people will receive honor, but fools will be disgraced. Mishlei 3:35


+ 236 When I was a young boy in my father’s house and like an only child to my mother, Mishlei 4:3


+ 310 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


+ 244 Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life. Mishlei 4:23


+ 246 The words of another man’s wife may seem sweet as honey; they may be as smooth as olive oil. Mishlei 5:3


+ 248 I would not listen to my teachers or pay attention to my instructors. Mishlei 5:13


+ 193 He will die because he does not control himself, and he will be held captive by his foolishness. Mishlei 5:23


+ 270 My child, if you have done this and are under your neighbor’s control, here is how to get free. Don’t be proud. Go to your neighbor and beg to be free from your promise. Mishlei 6:3


+ 232 Winking with their eyes, tapping with their feet, and making signs with their fingers. Mishlei 6:13


+ 242 These commands are like a lamp; this teaching is like a light. And the correction that comes from them will help you have life. Mishlei 6:23


+ 251 People don’t hate a thief when he steals because he is hungry. Mishlei 6:30


+ 232 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


+ 225 A man who takes part in adultery has no sense; he will destroy himself. Mishlei 6:32


+ 260 He will be beaten up and disgraced, and his shame will never go away. Mishlei 6:33


+ 241 Jealousy makes a husband very angry, and he will have no pity when he gets revenge. Mishlei 6:34


+ 239 He will accept no payment for the wrong; he will take no amount of money. Mishlei 6:35

+ 241 She grabbed him and kissed him. Without shame she said to him, Mishlei 7:13


+ 260 And shot through the liver with an arrow. Like a bird caught in a trap, he didn’t know what he did would kill him. Mishlei 7:23


+ 270 Beside the city gates, at the entrances into the city, she calls out: Mishlei 8:3


+ 349 Fear of the Lord is to hate evil, haughtiness, pride, the way of evil, and a perverse mouth; these I hate. Mishlei 8:13


+ 215 I was created in the very beginning, even before the world began. Mishlei 8:23


+ 236 I was a nursling beside Him, and I was His delight every day, playing before Him at all times; Mishlei 8:30


+ 228 Playing in the habitable world of His earth, and having my delights with the children of man. Mishlei 8:31


+ 233 And now, my children, hearken to me, and fortunate are those who observe my ways. Mishlei 8:32


+ 211 Hearken to discipline and become wise, and do not put it to naught. Mishlei 8:33


+ 244 Fortunate is the man who listens to me to watch by my doors day by day, to watch the doorposts of my entrances. Mishlei 8:34


+ 218 For he who has found me has found life, and he has obtained favor from the Lord. Mishlei 8:35


+ 236 But he who sins against me robs his soul; all who hate me, love death. Mishlei 8:36


+ 219 She has sent her maidens, she calls on the wings of the heights of the city, Mishlei 9:3


+ 225 The woman of folly is turbulent; she is simple and knows nothing. Mishlei 9:13


+ 233 Wise people speak with understanding, but people without wisdom should be punished. Mishlei 10:13


+ 234 A foolish person enjoys doing wrong, but a person with understanding enjoys doing what is wise. Mishlei 10:23


+ 239 Good people will always be safe, but evil people will not remain in the land. Mishlei 10:30


+ 233 A good person says wise things, but a liar’s tongue will be stopped. Mishlei 10:31


+ 221 Good people know the right thing to say, but evil people only tell lies. Mishlei 10:32


+ 283 Good people will be guided by honesty; dishonesty will destroy those who are not trustworthy. Mishlei 11:3


+ 242 Gossips can not keep secrets, but a trustworthy person can. Mishlei 11:13


+ 296 Those who do right only wish for good, but the wicked can expect to be defeated by God’s anger. Mishlei 11:23


+ 246 A good person gives life to others; the wise person teaches others how to live. Mishlei 11:30


+ 262 Good people will be rewarded on earth, and the wicked and the sinners will be punished. Mishlei 11:31


+ 244 Doing evil brings no safety at all, but a good person has safety and security. Mishlei 12:3


+ 203 Evil people are trapped by their evil talk, but good people stay out of trouble. Mishlei 12:13


+ 266 Wise people keep what they know to themselves, but fools can’t keep from showing how foolish they are. Mishlei 12:23


+ 251 Wise children take their parents’ advice, but whoever makes fun of wisdom won’t listen to correction. Mishlei 13:1


+ 251 People will be rewarded for what they say, but those who can not be trusted want only violence. Mishlei 13:2


+ 257 Those who are careful about what they say protect their lives, but whoever speaks without thinking will be ruined. Mishlei 13:3


+ 208 The lazy will not get what they want, but those who work hard will. Mishlei 13:4


+ 240 Good people hate what is false, but the wicked do shameful and disgraceful things. Mishlei 13:5


+ 266 Doing what is right protects the honest person, but doing evil ruins the sinner. Mishlei 13:6


+ 255 Some people pretend to be rich but really have nothing. Others pretend to be poor but really are wealthy. Mishlei 13:7


+ 237 The rich may have to pay a ransom for their lives, but the poor will face no such danger. Mishlei 13:8


+ 242 Good people can look forward to a bright future, but the future of the wicked is like a flame going out. Mishlei 13:9


+ 311 Pride only leads to arguments, but those who take advice are wise. Mishlei 13:10


+ 235 Money that comes easily disappears quickly, but money that is gathered little by little will grow. Mishlei 13:11


+ 256 It is sad not to get what you hoped for. But wishes that come true are like eating fruit from the tree of life. Mishlei 13:12


+ 276 Those who reject what they are taught will pay for it, but those who obey what they are told will be rewarded. Mishlei 13:13


+ 267 The teaching of a wise person gives life. It is like a fountain that can save people from death. Mishlei 13:14


+ 248 People with good understanding will be well liked, but the lives of those who are not trustworthy are hard. Mishlei 13:15


+ 243 Every wise person acts with good sense, but fools show how foolish they are. Mishlei 13:16


+ 206 A wicked messenger brings nothing but trouble, but a trustworthy one makes everything right. Mishlei 13:17


+ 260 A person who refuses correction will end up poor and disgraced, but the one who accepts correction will be honored. Mishlei 13:18


+ 213 It is so good when wishes come true, but fools hate to stop doing evil. Mishlei 13:19


+ 326 Spend time with the wise and you will become wise, but the friends of fools will suffer. Mishlei 13:20


+ 233 Trouble always comes to sinners, but good people enjoy success. Mishlei 13:21


+ 233 Good people leave their wealth to their grandchildren, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for good people. Mishlei 13:22


+ 229 A poor person’s field might produce plenty of food, but others often steal it away. Mishlei 13:23


+ 262 If you do not punish your children, you don’t love them, but if you love your children, you will correct them. Mishlei 13:24


+ 239 Good people have enough to eat, but the wicked will go hungry. Mishlei 13:25


+ 233 Fools will be punished for their proud words, but the words of the wise will protect them. Mishlei 14:3


+ 218 Someone who is laughing may be sad inside, and joy may end in sadness. Mishlei 14:13


+ 255 Those who work hard make a profit, but those who only talk will be poor. Mishlei 14:23


+ 249 Peace of mind means a healthy body, but jealousy will rot your bones. Mishlei 14:30


+ 255 Whoever mistreats the poor insults their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. Mishlei 14:31


+ 239 The wicked are ruined by their own evil, but those who do right are protected even in death. Mishlei 14:32


+ 245 Wisdom lives in those with understanding, and even fools recognize it. Mishlei 14:33


+ 246 Doing what is right makes a nation great, but sin will bring disgrace to any people. Mishlei 14:34


+ 186 A king is pleased with a wise servant, but he will become angry with one who causes him shame. Mishlei 14:35


+ 244 The Lord’s eyes see everything; he watches both evil and good people. Mishlei 15:3


+ 243 Happiness makes a person smile, but sadness can break a person’s spirit. Mishlei 15:13


+ 229 People enjoy giving good advice. Saying the right word at the right time is so pleasing. Mishlei 15:23


+ 210 Good news makes you feel better. Your happiness will show in your eyes. Mishlei 15:30


+ 242 If you listen to correction to improve your life, you will live among the wise. Mishlei 15:31


+ 243 Those who refuse correction hate themselves, but those who accept correction gain understanding. Mishlei 15:32


+ 232 Respect for the Lord will teach you wisdom. If you want to be honored, you must be humble. Mishlei 15:33


+ 258 Depend on the Lord in whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Mishlei 16:3


+ 229 Kings like honest people; they value someone who speaks the truth. Mishlei 16:13


+ 228 Wise people’s minds tell them what to say, and that helps them be better teachers. Mishlei 16:23


+ 250 Someone who winks is planning evil, and the one who grins is planning something wrong. Mishlei 16:30


+ 252 Gray hair is like a crown of honor; it is earned by living a good life. Mishlei 16:31


+ 246 Patience is better than strength. Controlling your temper is better than capturing a city. Mishlei 16:32


+ 249 People throw lots to make a decision, but the answer comes from the Lord. Mishlei 16:33


+ 229 A hot furnace tests silver and gold, but the Lord tests hearts. Mishlei 17:3


+ 247 Whoever gives evil in return for good will always have trouble at home. Mishlei 17:13


+ 220 When the wicked accept money to do wrong there can be no justice. Mishlei 17:23


+ 249 Do something evil, and people won’t like you. Do something shameful, and they will make fun of you. Mishlei 18:3


+ 219 Anyone who answers without listening is foolish and confused. Mishlei 18:13


+ 256 The poor beg for mercy, but the rich give rude answers. Mishlei 18:23


+ 244 People’s own foolishness ruins their lives, but in their minds they blame the Lord. Mishlei 19:3


+ 218 A foolish child brings disaster to a father, and a quarreling wife is like dripping water. Mishlei 19:13


+ 228 Those who respect the Lord will live and be satisfied, unbothered by trouble. Mishlei 19:23


+ 246 Foolish people are always fighting, but avoiding quarrels will bring you honor. Mishlei 20:3


+ 262 If you love to sleep, you will be poor. If you stay awake, you will have plenty of food. Mishlei 20:13


+ 242 The Lord hates dishonest weights, and dishonest scales do not please him. Mishlei 20:23


+ 262 Hard punishment will get rid of evil, and whippings can change an evil heart. Mishlei 20:30


+ 226 Doing what is right and fair is more important to the Lord than sacrifices. Mishlei 21:3


+ 261 Whoever ignores the poor when they cry for help will also cry for help and not be answered. Mishlei 21:13


+ 228 Those who are careful about what they say keep themselves out of trouble. Mishlei 21:23


+ 222 There is no wisdom, understanding, or advice that can succeed against the Lord. Mishlei 21:30


+ 267 You can get the horses ready for battle, but it is the Lord who gives the victory. Mishlei 21:31


+ 261 The wise see danger ahead and avoid it, but fools keep going and get into trouble. Mishlei 22:3


+ 227 The lazy person says, “There’s a lion outside! I might get killed out in the street!” Mishlei 22:13


+ 259 The Lord will defend them in court and will take the life of those who take away their rights. Mishlei 22:23


+ 269 If you sit down to eat with a ruler, notice the food that is in front of you. Mishlei 23:1


+ 235 Control yourself if you have a big appetite. Mishlei 23:2


+ 260 Don’t be greedy for his fine foods, because that food might be a trick. Mishlei 23:3


+ 225 Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich; be wise enough to control yourself. Mishlei 23:4


+ 255 Wealth can vanish in the wink of an eye. It can seem to grow wings and fly away like an eagle. Mishlei 23:5


+ 257 Don’t eat the food of selfish people; don’t be greedy for their fine foods. Mishlei 23:6


+ 267 Selfish people are always worrying about how much the food costs. They tell you, “Eat and drink,” but they don’t really mean it. Mishlei 23:7


+ 216 You will throw up the little you have eaten, and you will have wasted your kind words. Mishlei 23:8


+ 234 Do not speak to fools; they will only ignore your wise words. Mishlei 23:9


+ 245 Don’t move an old stone that marks a border, and don’t take fields that belong to orphans. Mishlei 23:10


+ 223 God, their defender, is strong; he will take their side against you. Mishlei 23:11


+ 235 Remember what you are taught, and listen carefully to words of knowledge. Mishlei 23:12


+ 227 Don’t fail to punish children. If you spank them, they won’t die. Mishlei 23:13


+ 233 If you spank them, you will save them from death. Mishlei 23:14


+ 239 My child, if you are wise, then I will be happy. Mishlei 23:15


+ 224 I will be so pleased if you speak what is right. Mishlei 23:16


+ 227 Don’t envy sinners, but always respect the Lord. Mishlei 23:17


+ 237 Then you will have hope for the future, and your wishes will come true. Mishlei 23:18


+ 240 Listen, my child, and be wise. Keep your mind on what is right. Mishlei 23:19


+ 179 Don’t drink too much wine or eat too much food. Mishlei 23:20


+ 263 Those who drink and eat too much become poor. They sleep too much and end up wearing rags. Mishlei 23:21


+ 254 Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not forget your mother when she is old. Mishlei 23:22


+ 260 Learn the truth and never reject it. Get wisdom, self-control, and understanding. Mishlei 23:23


+ 229 The father of a good child is very happy; parents who have wise children are glad because of them. Mishlei 23:24


+ 224 Make your father and mother happy; give your mother a reason to be glad. Mishlei 23:25


+ 242 My son, pay attention to me, and watch closely what I do. Mishlei 23:26


+ 243 A prostitute is as dangerous as a deep pit, and an unfaithful wife is like a narrow well. Mishlei 23:27


+ 287 They ambush you like robbers and cause many men to be unfaithful to their wives. Mishlei 23:28


+ 229 Who has trouble? Who has pain?
Who fights? Who complains?
Who has unnecessary bruises?
Who has bloodshot eyes?
Mishlei 23:29


+ 245 It is people who drink too much wine, who try out all different kinds of strong drinks. Mishlei 23:30


+ 250 Don’t stare at the wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly. Mishlei 23:31


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


+ 236 Your eyes will see strange sights, and your mind will be confused. Mishlei 23:33


+ 264 You will feel dizzy as if you’re in a storm on the ocean, as if you’re on top of a ship’s sails. Mishlei 23:34


+ 241 You will think, They hit me, but I’m not hurt. They beat me up, but I don’t remember it. I wish I could wake up. Then I would get another drink.
Mishlei 23:35


+ 233 It takes wisdom to have a good family, and it takes understanding to make it strong. Mishlei 24:3


+ 271 My child, eat honey because it is good. Honey from the honeycomb tastes sweet. Mishlei 24:13


+ 265 These are also sayings of the wise: It is not good to take sides when you are the judge. Mishlei 24:23


+ 243 I passed by a lazy person’s field and by the vineyard of someone with no sense. Mishlei 24:30


+ 263 Thorns had grown up everywhere. The ground was covered with weeds, and the stone walls had fallen down. Mishlei 24:31


+ 275 I thought about what I had seen; I learned this lesson from what I saw. Mishlei 24:32


+ 236 You sleep a little; you take a nap. You fold your hands and lie down to rest. Mishlei 24:33


+ 247 Soon you will be as poor as if you had been robbed; you will have as little as if you had been held up. Mishlei 24:34


+ 231 No one can measure the height of the skies or the depth of the earth. So also no one can understand the mind of a king. Mishlei 25:3


+ 210 Trustworthy messengers refresh those who send them, like the coolness of snow in the summertime. Mishlei 25:13


+ 338 As the north wind brings rain, telling gossip brings angry looks. Mishlei 25:23


+ 224 Whips are for horses, and harnesses are for donkeys, so paddles are good for fools. Mishlei 26:3


+ 216 The lazy person says, “There’s a lion in the road! There’s a lion in the streets!” Mishlei 26:13


+ 244 Kind words from a wicked mind are like a shiny coating on a clay pot. Mishlei 26:23


+ 262 Stone is heavy, and sand is weighty, but a complaining fool is worse than either. Mishlei 27:3


+ 289 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


+ 212 Be sure you know how your sheep are doing, and pay attention to the condition of your cattle. Mishlei 27:23


+ 241 Rulers who mistreat the poor are like a hard rain that destroys the crops. Mishlei 28:3


+ 231 If you hide your sins, you will not succeed. If you confess and reject them, you will receive mercy. Mishlei 28:13


+ 231 Those who correct others will later be liked more than those who give false praise. Mishlei 28:23


+ 263 Those who love wisdom make their parents happy, but friends of prostitutes waste their money. Mishlei 29:3


+ 271 The poor person and the cruel person are alike in that the Lord gave eyes to both of them. Mishlei 29:13


+ 205 Pride will ruin people, but those who are humble will be honored. Mishlei 29:23


+ 226 These are the words of Agur son of Jakeh. This is his message to Ithiel and Ucal: Mishlei 30:1


+ 231 I am the most stupid person there is, and I have no understanding. Mishlei 30:2


+ 231 I have not learned to be wise, and I don’t know much about God, the Holy One. Mishlei 30:3


+ 254 Who has gone up to heaven and come back down?
Who can hold the wind in his hand?
Who can gather up the waters in his coat?
Who has set in place the ends of the earth?
What is his name or his son’s name?
Tell me, if you know!
Mishlei 30:4


+ 240 Every word of God is true. He guards those who come to him for safety. Mishlei 30:5


+ 238 Do not add to his words, or he will correct you and prove you are a liar. Mishlei 30:6


+ 217 I ask two things from you, Lord. Don’t refuse me before I die. Mishlei 30:7


+ 256 Keep me from lying and being dishonest. And don’t make me either rich or poor; just give me enough food for each day. Mishlei 30:8


+ 251 If I have too much, I might reject you and say, ‘I don’t know the Lord.’
If I am poor, I might steal and disgrace the name of my God.
Mishlei 30:9


+ 258 Do not say bad things about servants to their masters, or they will curse you, and you will suffer for it. Mishlei 30:10


+ 254 Some people curse their fathers and do not bless their mothers. Mishlei 30:11


+ 230 Some people think they are pure, but they are not really free from evil. Mishlei 30:12


+ 227 Some people have such a proud look! They look down on others. Mishlei 30:13


+ 247 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


+ 246 “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


+ 240 the cemetery, the childless mother, the land that never gets enough rain, and fire that never says, ‘I’ve had enough!’ Mishlei 30:16


+ 261 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


+ 240 There are three things that are too hard for me, really four I don’t understand: Mishlei 30:18


+ 303 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


+ 288 “This is the way of a woman who takes part in adultery: She acts as if she had eaten and washed her face; she says, ‘I haven’t done anything wrong.’ Mishlei 30:20


+ 258 There are three things that make the earth tremble, really four it cannot stand: Mishlei 30:21


+ 222 À servant who becomes a king, a foolish person who has plenty to eat, Mishlei 30:22


+ 262 A hated woman who gets married, and a maid who replaces her mistress. Mishlei 30:23


+ 244 There are four things on earth that are small, but they are very wise: Mishlei 30:24


+ 207 Ants are not very strong, but they store up food in the summer. Mishlei 30:25


+ 206 Rock badgers are not very powerful, but they can live among the rocks. Mishlei 30:26


+ 212 Locusts have no king, but they all go forward in formation. Mishlei 30:27


+ 226 Lizards can be caught in the hand, but they are found even in kings’ palaces. Mishlei 30:28


+ 239 There are three things that strut proudly, really four that walk as if they were important: Mishlei 30:29


+ 334 A lion, the proudest animal, which is strong and runs from nothing, Mishlei 30:30


+ 226 A rooster, a male goat, and a king when his army is around him. Mishlei 30:31


+ 255 If you have been foolish and proud, or if you have planned evil, shut your mouth. Mishlei 30:32


+ 240 Just as stirring milk makes butter, and twisting noses makes them bleed, so stirring up anger causes trouble. Mishlei 30:33


+ 251 These are the words of King Lemuel, the message his mother taught him: Mishlei 31:1


+ 263 My son, I gave birth to you. You are the son I prayed for. Mishlei 30:2


+ 213 Don’t waste your strength on women or your time on those who ruin kings. Mishlei 30:3


+ 228 Kings should not drink wine, Lemuel, and rulers should not desire beer. Mishlei 30:4


+ 214 If they drink, they might forget the law and keep the needy from getting their rights. Mishlei 31:5


+ 238 Give beer to people who are dying and wine to those who are sad. Mishlei 31:6


+ 227 Let them drink and forget their need and remember their misery no more. Mishlei 31:7


+ 241 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; defend the rights of all those who have nothing. Mishlei 31:8


+ 256 Speak up and judge fairly, and defend the rights of the poor and needy. Mishlei 31:9


+ 243 It is hard to find a good wife, because she is worth more than rubies. Mishlei 31:10


+ 300 Her husband trusts her completely. With her, he has everything he needs. Mishlei 31:11


+ 254 She does him good and not harm for as long as she lives. Mishlei 31:12


+ 232 She looks for wool and flax and likes to work with her hands. Mishlei 31:13


+ 245 She is like a trader’s ship, bringing food from far away. Mishlei 31:14


+ 257 She gets up while it is still dark and prepares food for her family and feeds her servant girls. Mishlei 31:15


+ 230 She inspects a field and buys it. With money she earned, she plants a vineyard. Mishlei 31:16


+ 211 She does her work with energy, and her arms are strong. Mishlei 31:17


+ 241 She knows that what she makes is good. Her lamp burns late into the night. Mishlei 31:18


+ 239 She makes thread with her hands and weaves her own cloth. Mishlei 31:19


+ 259 She welcomes the poor and helps the needy. Mishlei 31:20


+ 250 She does not worry about her family when it snows, because they all have fine clothes to keep them warm. Mishlei 31:21


+ 228 She makes coverings for herself; her clothes are made of linen and other expensive material. Mishlei 31:22


+ 232 Her husband is known at the city meetings, where he makes decisions as one of the leaders of the land. Mishlei 31:23


+ 260 She makes linen clothes and sells them and provides belts to the merchants. Mishlei 31:24


+ 240 She is strong and is respected by the people. She looks forward to the future with joy. Mishlei 31:25


+ 222 She speaks wise words and teaches others to be kind. Mishlei 31:26


+ 259 She watches over her family and never wastes her time. Mishlei 31:27


+ 215 Her children speak well of her. Her husband also praises her, Mishlei 31:28


+ 239 Saying, “There are many fine women, but you are better than all of them.” Mishlei 31:29


+ 258 Charm can fool you, and beauty can trick you, but a woman who respects the Lord should be praised. Mishlei 31:30


+ 269 Give her the reward she has earned; she should be praised in public for what she has done. Mishlei 31:31


+ 318 “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)


+ 323 “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.


+ 231 For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:3


+ 232 Whoever mourns for Jerusalem will be meritorious and will see its rejoicing and all who do not mourn for Jerusalem will not see it's rejoicing. Talmud, Taanit 30b


+ 253 Each and every acacia tree that the non-Jews removed from Jerusalem, will be restored to it by the Holy One, Blessed be He, in the future. Talmud, Rosh Hashana 23a


+ 282 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the prophets and stoner of those sent forth to her,—how often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks together under her wings! But you people did not want it. Jesus Christ, Matthew 23:37


+ 237 For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:3

+ 267 Think about it; the quicktank is given a job most of us would laugh out of town. Build a sophisticated camera capable of full 3-D input and peripheral pickup, using only water and jelly. Build an eye. Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan, Vol. 2: Lust for Life


+ 293 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


+ 256 What profit has man in all his toil that he toils under the sun? Kohelet 1:3


+ 304 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


+ 337 I searched in my heart to indulge my body with wine, and my heart conducting itself with wisdom and holding onto folly, until I would see which is better for the children of men that they should do under the heavens, the number of the days of their lives. Kohelet 2:3


+ 227 And I saw that wisdom has an advantage over folly, as the advantage of light over darkness. Kohelet 2:13


+ 286 For all his days are pains and his occupation is vexation; even at night his heart does not rest; this too is vanity. Kohelet 2:23


+ 259 Everything has an appointed season, and there is a time for every matter under the heaven. Kohelet 3:1


+ 350 A time to give birth and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to uproot that which is planted. Kohelet 3:2


+ 240 A time to kill and a time to heal; a time to break and a time to build. Kohelet 3:3


+ 229 A time to weep and a time to laugh; a time of wailing and a time of dancing. Kohelet 3:4


+ 221 A time to cast stones and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing. Kohelet 3:5


+ 232 A time to seek and a time to lose; a time to keep and a time to cast away. Kohelet 3:6


+ 275 A time to rend and a time to sew; a time to be silent and a time to speak. Kohelet 3:7


+ 207 A time to love and a time to hate; a time for war and a time for peace. Kohelet 3:8


+ 237 What profit has the one who works in that which he toils? Kohelet 3:9


+ 207 I have seen the occupation that God gave to the sons of men with which to occupy themselves. Kohelet 3:10


+ 242 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


+ 248 I knew that there is nothing better for them but to rejoice and to do good during his lifetime. Kohelet 3:12


+ 264 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


+ 255 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


+ 240 That which was is already done, and that which is destined to be, already was, and God seeks the pursued. Kohelet 3:15


+ 255 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


+ 223 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


+ 292 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


+ 258 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


+ 242 All go to one place; all came from the dust, and all return to the dust. Kohelet 3:20


+ 236 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


+ 265 And I saw that there is nothing better than that man rejoice in his deeds, for that is his portion, for who will bring him to see what will be after him? Kohelet 3:22


+ 261 And better than both of them is he who has not yet been, who has not seen the evil work that is done under the sun. Kohelet 4:3


+ 289 Better a poor and wise child than an old and foolish king, who no longer knows to receive admonition. Kohelet 4:13


+ 231 When you pronounce a vow to God, do not delay to pay, for He has no pleasure in fools; that which you vow, pay. Kohelet 5:3


+ 258 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


+ 282 Should a man beget one hundred children and live many years, and he will have much throughout the days of his years, but his soul will not be sated from all the good, neither did he have burial. I said that the stillborn is better than he. Kohelet 6:3


+ 265 Vexation is better than laughter, for with a stern countenance the heart will rejoice. Kohelet 7:3


+ 234 See God's work, for who can straighten out what He made crooked? Kohelet 7:13


+ 240 All this I tested with wisdom; I said, "I will become wise," but it was far from me. Kohelet 7:23


+ 279 Hasten not to go away from before Him; stay not in an evil thing; for all that He wishes, He will do. Kohelet 8:3


+ 348 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


+ 259 This is the most evil in all that is done under the sun, that all have one occurrence, and also the heart of the children of men is full of evil, and there is madness in their heart in their lifetime, and after that they go to the dead. Kohelet 9:3


+ 247 This also have I seen as wisdom under the sun, and it seemed great to me. Kohelet 9:13


+ 233 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


+ 220 The beginning of the words of his mouth is folly, and the end of his speech is grievous madness. Kohelet 10:13


+ 250 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


+ 293 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


+ 273 The end of the matter, everything having been heard, fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the entire man. Kohelet 12:13


+ 297 I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. Michael Jordan

+ 394 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


+ 331 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


+ 277 The Secretary of Hygiene or Physical Culture will be far more important in the cabinet of the President of the United States who holds office in the year 2035 than the Secretary of War. Nikola Tesla


+ 196 I took up an offer for me to lose 30 pounds in 30 days. It worked. I lost 30 days! Zig Ziglar


+ 244 And God said, Let there be light, and there was light. Bereshit 1:3


+ 206 It was evening and it was morning, a third day. Bereshit 1:13


+ 189 It was evening and it was morning, a fifth day. Bereshit 1:23


+ 203 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


+ 200 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


+ 218 God blessed the seventh day, and He declared it to be holy, for it was on this day that God ceased from all the work that He had been creating so that it would continue to function. Bereshit 2:3


+ 179 The name of the second river is Gihon. It surrounds the land of Cush. Bereshit 2:13


+ 183 The man said, Now this is bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh. She shall be called Woman (Ishah) because she was taken from man (ish). Bereshit 2:23


+ 207 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


+ 168 The woman replied to the serpent, We may eat from the fruit of the trees of the garden. Bereshit 3:2


+ 198 But of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, God said, Do not eat it, and do not even touch it, or else you will die. Bereshit 3:3


+ 158 The serpent said to the woman, You will certainly not die! Bereshit 3:4


+ 181 Really, God knows that on the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. Bereshit 3:5


+ 183 The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and desirable to the eyes, and that the tree was attractive as a means to gain intelligence. She took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, and he ate it. Bereshit 3:6


+ 203 The eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized that they were naked. They sewed together fig leaves, and made themselves loincloths. Bereshit 3:7


+ 167 They heard God's voice moving about in the garden with the wind of the day. The man and his wife hid themselves from God among the trees of the garden. Bereshit 3:8


+ 173 God called to the man, and He said, Where are you trying to hide? Bereshit 3:9


+ 188 I heard Your voice in the garden, replied the man, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid. Bereshit 3:10


+ 172 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


+ 176 The man replied, The woman that you gave to be with me - she gave me what I ate from the tree. Bereshit 3:12


+ 169 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


+ 213 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


+ 161 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


+ 197 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


+ 229 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


+ 174 It will bring forth thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the grass of the field. Bereshit 3:18


+ 195 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


+ 159 The man named his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all life. Bereshit 3:20


+ 182 God made leather garments for Adam and his wife and He clothed them. Bereshit 3:21


+ 216 God said, Man has now become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now he must be prevented from putting forth his hand and also taking from the Tree of Life. He can eat it and live forever! Bereshit 3:22


+ 166 God banished man from the Garden of Eden, to work the ground from which he was taken. Bereshit 3:23


+ 227 He drove away the man, and stationed the cherubim at the east of Eden, along with the revolving sword blade, to guard the path of the Tree of Life. Bereshit 3:24


+ 164 An era ended. Cain brought some of his crops as an offering to God. Bereshit 4:3


+ 165 Cain said, My sin is too great to bear! Bereshit 4:13


+ 199 Lemekh said to his wives, Adah and Tzillah, hear my voice; wives of Lemekh, listen to my speech. I have killed a man by wounding him, and a child by bruising him. Bereshit 4:23


+ 205 Adam lived 130 years, and he had a son in his likeness and form. He named him Seth. Bereshit 5:3


+ 186 All the days that Adam lived were 930 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:5


+ 178 Kenan lived 840 years after he had Mahalalel, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:13

+ 150 All of Enoch's days were 365 years. Bereshit 5:23


+ 194 Lemekh lived 595 years after he had Noah, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:30


+ 163 All of Lemekh's days were 777 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:31


+ 177 Noah was 500 years old, and Noah fathered Shem, Ham, and Yefeth. Bereshit 5:32


+ 196 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


+ 205 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


+ 175 Also, of the fowl of the heavens, seven pairs, male and female, to keep seed alive on the face of the earth. Bereshit 7:3


+ 172 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


+ 232 And it the Flood blotted out all beings that were upon the face of the earth, from man to animal to creeping thing and to the fowl of the heavens, and they were blotted out from the earth, and only Noah and those with him in the ark survived. Bereshit 7:23


+ 161 And the waters receded off the earth more and more, and the water diminished at the end of a hundred and fifty days. Bereshit 8:3


+ 223 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


+ 174 Every moving thing that lives shall be yours to eat; like the green vegetation, I have given you everything. Bereshit 9:3


+ 181 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


+ 217 And Shem and Japheth took the garment, and they placed it on both of their shoulders, and they walked backwards, and they covered their father's nakedness, and their faces were turned backwards, so that they did not see their father's nakedness. Bereshit 9:23


+ 183 And the sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz and Riphath and Togarmah. Bereshit 10:3


+ 205 And Mizraim begot the Ludim and the Anamim and the Lehabim and the Naphtuhim, Bereshit 10:13


+ 168 And the sons of Aram were Uz and Hul and Gether and Mash. Bereshit 10:23


+ 160 And their settlement was from Mesha, as you come to Sephar, the mountain of the east. Bereshit 10:30


+ 179 These are the sons of Shem according to their families, according to their tongues, in their lands, according to their nations. Bereshit 10:31


+ 243 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


+ 205 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


+ 199 And Arpachshad lived after he had begotten Shelah four hundred and three years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:13


+ 199 And Serug lived after he had begotten Nahor, two hundred years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:23

+ 221 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


+ 164 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years, and Terah died in Haran. Bereshit 11:32


+ 187 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


+ 192 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


+ 190 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


+ 177 And Abram was very heavy with cattle, with silver, and with gold. Bereshit 13:2


+ 182 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


+ 164 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


+ 182 And also Lot, who went with Abram, had flocks and cattle and tents. Bereshit 13:5


+ 169 And the land did not bear them to dwell together, for their possessions were many, and they could not dwell together. Bereshit 13:6


+ 196 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


+ 207 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


+ 200 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


+ 199 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


+ 188 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


+ 190 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


+ 194 And the people of Sodom were very evil and sinful against the Lord. Bereshit 13:13


+ 216 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


+ 168 For all the land that you see I will give to you and to your seed to eternity. Bereshit 13:15


+ 177 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


+ 166 Rise, walk in the land, to its length and to its breadth, for I will give it to you. Bereshit 13:17


+ 173 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


+ 171 All these joined in the valley of Siddim, which is the Dead Sea. Bereshit 14:3


+ 175 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


+ 177 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


+ 212 And Abram said, Behold, You have given me no seed, and behold, one of my household will inherit me. Bereshit 15:3


+ 209 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


+ 183 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


+ 187 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


+ 138 And Abram fell upon his face, and God spoke with him, saying, Bereshit 17:3


+ 210 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


+ 223 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


+ 217 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


+ 185 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


+ 187 And Abraham approached and said, Will You even destroy the righteous with the wicked? Bereshit 18:23


+ 170 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


+ 165 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


+ 179 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


+ 170 And the Lord departed when He finished speaking to Abraham, and Abraham returned to his place. Bereshit 18:33


+ 180 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


+ 170 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


+ 160 The sun came out upon the earth, and Lot came to Zoar. Bereshit 19:23


+ 177 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


+ 183 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


+ 189 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


+ 190 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


+ 202 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


+ 194 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


+ 168 And Lot's two daughters conceived from their father. Bereshit 19:36


+ 163 And the elder bore a son, and she named him Moab; he is the father of Moab until this day. Bereshit 19:37


+ 175 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


+ 182 And God came to Abimelech in a dream of the night, and He said to him, Behold you are going to die because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is a married woman. Bereshit 20:3


+ 187 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


+ 196 And Abraham named his son who had been born to him, whom Sarah had borne to him, Isaac. Bereshit 21:3


+ 190 But also the son of the handmaid I will make into a nation, because he is your seed. Bereshit 21:13


+ 213 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


+ 197 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


+ 162 Therefore, he named that place Beer sheba, for there they both swore. Bereshit 21:31


+ 212 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


+ 180 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


+ 175 And Abraham dwelt in the land of the Philistines for many days. Bereshit 21:34


+ 225 And Abraham arose early in the morning, and he saddled his donkey, and he took his two young men with him and Isaac his son; and he split wood for a burnt offering, and he arose and went to the place of which God had told him. Bereshit 22:3


+ 208 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


+ 185 And Bethuel begot Rebecca. These eight did Milcah bear to Nahor, Abraham's brother. Bereshit 22:23


+ 171 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


+ 201 And Sarah died in Kiriath arba, which is Hebron, in the land of Canaan, and Abraham came to eulogize Sarah and to bewail her. Bereshit 23:2


+ 167 And Abraham arose from before his dead, and he spoke to the sons of Heth, saying, Bereshit 23:3


+ 165 I am a stranger and an inhabitant with you. Give me burial property with you, so that I may bury my dead from before me. Bereshit 23:4


+ 171 And the sons of Heth answered Abraham, saying to him, Bereshit 23:5


+ 229 Listen to us, my lord; you are a prince of God in our midst; in the choicest of our graves bury your dead. None of us will withhold his grave from you to bury your dead. Bereshit 23:6


+ 168 And Abraham arose and prostrated himself to the people of the land, to the sons of Heth. Bereshit 23:7


+ 184 And he spoke with them, saying, If it is your will that I bury my dead from before me, listen to me and entreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar. Bereshit 23:8


+ 198 That he may give me the Machpelah (double) Cave, which belongs to him, which is at the end of his field; for a full price let him give it to me in your midst for burial property. Bereshit 23:9


+ 203 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


+ 202 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


+ 163 And Abraham prostrated himself before the people of the land. Bereshit 23:12


+ 205 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


+ 167 And Ephron replied to Abraham, saying to him, Bereshit 23:14


+ 193 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


+ 213 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


+ 207 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


+ 196 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


+ 208 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


+ 188 And the field and the cave within it were established to Abraham as burial property, purchased from the sons of Heth. Bereshit 23:20


+ 188 And I will adjure you by the Lord, the God of the heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose midst I dwell. Bereshit 24:3


+ 179 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


+ 171 And he said, Whose daughter are you? Please tell me. Is there place for us for lodging in your father's house? Bereshit 24:23


+ 217 And it came to pass, when he saw the nose ring and the bracelets on his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of his sister Rebecca, saying, So did the man speak to me, that he came to the man, and behold, he was standing over the camels at the fountain. Bereshit 24:30


+ 164 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


+ 179 So the man came to the house and unmuzzled the camels, and he gave straw and fodder to the camels and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men who were with him. Bereshit 24:32


+ 181 And food was set before him to eat, but he said, I will not eat until I have spoken my words. And he said, Speak. Bereshit 24:33


+ 176 And he said, I am Abraham's servant. Bereshit 24:34


+ 221 And the Lord blessed my master exceedingly, and he became great, and He gave him sheep and cattle, silver and gold, man servants and maid servants, camels and donkeys. Bereshit 24:35


+ 187 And Sarah, my master's wife, bore a son to my master after she had become old, and he gave him all that he possesses. Bereshit 24:36


+ 202 And my master adjured me, saying, You shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell. Bereshit 24:37


+ 177 Instead, you must go to my father's house and to my family, and take a wife for my son. Bereshit 24:38


+ 173 And I said to my master, Perhaps the woman will not follow me? Bereshit 24:39


+ 200 Behold, I am standing by the water fountain. When a maiden comes out to draw water, I will say to her, Please, give me a little water to drink from your pitcher. Bereshit 24:43


+ 188 And the servant took out silver articles and golden articles and garments, and he gave them to Rebecca, and he gave delicacies to her brother and to her mother. Bereshit 24:53


+ 174 And Isaac went forth to pray in the field towards evening, and he lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, camels were approaching. Bereshit 24:63


+ 170 And Jokshan begot Sheba and Dedan, and the sons of Dedan were Ashurim, Letushim, and Leumim. Bereshit 25:3


+ 176 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


+ 174 And the Lord said to her, Two nations are in your womb, and two kingdoms will separate from your innards, and one kingdom will become mightier than the other kingdom, and the elder will serve the younger. Bereshit 25:23


+ 212 And Esau said to Jacob, Pour into me some of this red, red pottage, for I am faint; he was therefore named Edom. Bereshit 25:30


+ 173 And Jacob said, Sell me as of this day your birthright. Bereshit 25:31


+ 161 Esau replied, Behold, I am going to die; so why do I need this birthright? Bereshit 25:32


+ 188 And Jacob said, Swear to me as of this day; so he swore to him, and he sold his birthright to Jacob. Bereshit 25:33


+ 177 And Jacob gave Esau bread and a pottage of lentils, and he ate and drank and arose and left, and Esau despised the birthright. Bereshit 25:34


+ 195 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and I will bless you, for to you and to your seed will I give all these lands, and I will establish the oath that I swore to Abraham, your father. Bereshit 26:3


+ 164 And the man became great, and he grew constantly greater until he had grown very great. Bereshit 26:13


+ 154 And he went up from there to Beer sheba. Bereshit 26:23


+ 165 So he made a feast for them, and they ate and drank. Bereshit 26:30


+ 203 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


+ 194 And it came to pass on that day, that Isaac's servants came and told him about the well that they had dug, and they said to him, We have found water. Bereshit 26:32


+ 186 And he named it Shibah; therefore, the city is named Beer sheba until this very day. Bereshit 26:33


+ 155 And Esau was forty years old, and he married Judith, the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath, the daughter of Elon the Hittite. Bereshit 26:34


+ 176 And they were a vexation of the spirit to Isaac and to Rebecca. Bereshit 26:35


+ 177 So, now, sharpen your implements, your sword and take your bow, and go forth to the field, and hunt game for me. Bereshit 27:3


+ 196 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


+ 185 And he did not recognize him because his hands were hairy like the hands of his brother Esau, and he blessed him. Bereshit 27:23


+ 205 And it came to pass, when Isaac had finished blessing Jacob, and it came to pass Jacob had just left his father Isaac's presence, that his brother Esau came from his hunt. Bereshit 27:30


+ 192 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


+ 177 And his father Isaac said to him, Who are you? And he said, I am your son, your firstborn, Esau. Bereshit 27:32


+ 255 And Isaac shuddered a great shudder, and he said, Who then is the one who hunted game and brought it to me, and I ate of everything while you had not yet come, and I blessed him? He, too, shall be blessed. Bereshit 27:33


+ 179 When Esau heard his father's words, he cried out a great and bitter cry, and he said to his father, Bless me too, O my father! Bereshit 27:34


+ 176 And he said, Your brother came with cunning and took your blessing. Bereshit 27:35


+ 212 And he said, Is it for this reason that he was named Jacob? For he has deceived me twice; he took my birthright, and behold, now he has taken my blessing. And he said, Have you not reserved a blessing for me? Bereshit 27:36


+ 216 And Isaac answered and said to Esau, Behold, I made him a master over you, and I gave him all his brothers as servants, and I have sustained him with corn and wine; so for you then, what shall I do, my son? Bereshit 27:37


+ 166 And Esau said to his father, Have you but one blessing, my father? Bless me too, my father. And Esau raised his voice and wept. Bereshit 27:38


+ 204 And his father Isaac answered and said to him, Behold, your dwelling place shall be the fat places of the earth and of the dew of the heaven from above. Bereshit 27:39


+ 173 And now, my son, hearken to my voice, and arise, flee to my brother Laban, to Haran. Bereshit 27:43


+ 188 And may the Almighty God bless you and make you fruitful and multiply you, and you shall become an assembly of peoples. Bereshit 28:3


+ 188 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


+ 195 And all the flocks would gather there, and they would roll the rock off the mouth of the well and water the sheep, and then they would return the rock onto the mouth of the well, to its place. Bereshit 29:3


+ 195 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


+ 158 And it came to pass in the evening that Laban took his daughter Leah, and he brought her to him, and he came to her. Bereshit 29:23


+ 198 And he came also to Rachel, and he also loved Rachel more than Leah; and he worked with him yet another seven years. Bereshit 29:30


+ 174 And the Lord saw that Leah was hated, so He opened her womb; but Rachel was barren. Bereshit 29:31


+ 220 And Leah conceived and bore a son, and she named him Reuben, for she said, Because the Lord has seen my affliction, for now my husband will love me. Bereshit 29:32


+ 190 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she said, Since the Lord has heard that I am hated, He gave me this one too. So she named him Simeon. Bereshit 29:33


+ 204 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she said, Now this time my husband will be attached to me, for I have borne him three sons; therefore, He named him Levi. Bereshit 29:34


+ 184 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she said, This time, I will thank the Lord! Therefore, she named him Judah, and then she stopped bearing. Bereshit 29:35


+ 196 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


+ 196 And Jacob became angry with Rachel, and he said, Am I instead of God, Who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb? Bereshit 30:2


+ 164 So she said, Here is my maidservant Bilhah; come to her, and she will bear children on my knees, so that I, too, will be built up from her. Bereshit 30:3


+ 168 So she gave him her maidservant Bilhah for a wife, and Jacob came to her. Bereshit 30:4


+ 186 And Bilhah conceived, and she bore Jacob a son. Bereshit 30:5


+ 176 And Rachel said, God has judged me, and He has also hearkened to my voice and has given me a son; so she named him Dan. Bereshit 30:6


+ 196 And Bilhah, Rachel's maidservant, conceived again and bore Jacob a second son. Bereshit 30:7


+ 190 And Rachel said, With divine bonds I have been joined to my sister; I have also prevailed; so she named him Naftali. Bereshit 30:8


+ 208 When Leah saw that she had stopped bearing children, she took her maidservant Zilpah, and gave her to Jacob for a wife. Bereshit 30:9


+ 179 And Zilpah, Leah's maidservant, bore Jacob a son. Bereshit 30:10


+ 168 And Leah said, Luck has come; so she named him Gad. Bereshit 30:11


+ 185 And Zilpah, Leah's maidservant, bore Jacob a second son. Bereshit 30:12


+ 187 And Leah said, Because of my good fortune, for women have declared me fortunate; so she named him Asher. Bereshit 30:13


+ 204 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


+ 219 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


+ 212 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


+ 181 And God hearkened to Leah, and she conceived and bore Jacob a fifth son. Bereshit 30:17


+ 174 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


+ 186 And Leah conceived again, and she bore Jacob a sixth son. Bereshit 30:19


+ 201 And Leah said, God has given me a good portion. This time, my husband will live with me, for I have borne him six sons; so she named him Zebulun. Bereshit 30:20


+ 178 And afterwards, she bore a daughter, and she named her Dinah. Bereshit 30:21


+ 171 And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and He opened her womb. Bereshit 30:22


+ 199 And she conceived and bore a son, and she said, God has taken away my reproach. Bereshit 30:23


+ 191 So she named him Joseph, saying, May the Lord grant me yet another son! Bereshit 30:24


+ 217 It came to pass when Rachel had borne Joseph, that Jacob said to Laban, Send me away, and I will go to my place and to my land. Bereshit 30:25


+ 182 Give me my wives and my children for whom I worked for you, and I will go, for you know my work, which I have worked for you. Bereshit 30:26


+ 181 And Laban said to him, If only I have now found favor in your eyes! I have divined, and the Lord has blessed me for your sake. Bereshit 30:27


+ 177 Then he said, Specify your wages for me, and I will give them. Bereshit 30:28


+ 172 And he said to him, You know how I have worked for you and how your livestock was with me. Bereshit 30:29


+ 181 For the little that you had before me has increased in multitude, and the Lord blessed you upon my arrival; but now, when will I, too, provide something for my household? Bereshit 30:30


+ 197 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


+ 219 I will pass throughout all your flocks today, removing from there every speckled and spotted kid, and every brown lamb among the sheep, and every spotted and speckled one from among the goats, and this shall be my wages. Bereshit 30:32


+ 200 And my righteousness will testify for me at a future date for it will come upon my wages before you. Whatever is not speckled or spotted among the goats or brown among the sheep shall be counted as stolen with me. Bereshit 30:33


+ 186 And Laban said, Very well! If only it would be as you say! Bereshit 30:34


+ 224 And he removed on that day the ringed and the spotted male goats and all the speckled and spotted female goats, whichever had white on it, and all the brown from among the sheep, and he gave them into the hands of his sons. Bereshit 30:35


+ 202 And he set three days' journey between himself and Jacob, and Jacob tended Laban's remaining animals. Bereshit 30:36


+ 205 And Jacob took himself moist rods of trembling poplar and hazelnut, and chestnut, and he peeled white streaks upon them, baring the white that was on the rods. Bereshit 30:37


+ 201 And he thrust the rods that he had peeled, into the gutters in the watering troughs where the animals would come to drink opposite the other animals, and they would come into heat when they came to drink. Bereshit 30:38


+ 211 And the flocks came into heat by the rods, and the animals bore ringed, spotted, and striped young. Bereshit 30:39


+ 219 And Jacob separated the sheep, and he turned the faces of the animals toward the ringed ones and every brown one among Laban's animals, and he made himself flocks by himself, and he did not place them with Laban's animals. Bereshit 30:40


+ 208 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


+ 213 But if the animals would delay, he would not place them, so that the ones that delayed were Laban's, and the ones that bore their first became Jacob's. Bereshit 30:42


+ 202 And the man became exceedingly wealthy, and he had prolific animals, and maidservants and manservants, and camels and donkeys. Bereshit 30:43


+ 204 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


+ 197 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


+ 195 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


+ 181 So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field, to his flocks. Bereshit 31:4


+ 198 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


+ 191 So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field, to his flocks. Bereshit 31:4


+ 191 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


+ 190 And you know that with all my might I served your father. Bereshit 31:6


+ 183 But your father mocked me and changed my wages ten times, but God did not permit him to harm me. Bereshit 31:7


+ 158 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


+ 160 Thus, God separated your father's livestock and gave it to me. Bereshit 31:9


+ 195 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


+ 185 And an angel of God said to me in a dream, Jacob! And I said, Here I am. Bereshit 31:11


+ 207 And he said, Now lift your eyes and see that all the he goats mounting the animals are ringed, speckled, and striped, for I have seen all that Laban is doing to you. Bereshit 31:12


+ 208 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


+ 171 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


+ 179 Are we not considered by him as strangers, for he sold us and also consumed our money? Bereshit 31:15


+ 184 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


+ 189 So Jacob rose, and he lifted up his sons and his wives upon the camels. Bereshit 31:17


+ 223 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


+ 190 Now Laban had gone to shear his sheep, and meanwhile Rachel stole her father's teraphim. Bereshit 31:19


+ 204 And Jacob concealed from Laban the Aramean by not telling him that he was fleeing. Bereshit 31:20


+ 183 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


+ 184 On the third day, Laban was informed that Jacob had fled. Bereshit 31:22


+ 167 So he took his kinsmen with him, and he pursued him seven days journey, and he overtook him at Mount Gilead. Bereshit 31:23


+ 209 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


+ 181 And Laban overtook Jacob, and Jacob pitched his tent on the mountain, and Laban pitched with his kinsmen on Mount Gilead. Bereshit 31:25


+ 218 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


+ 211 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


+ 176 And you did not allow me to kiss my sons and daughters. Now, you have acted foolishly. Bereshit 31:28


+ 204 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


+ 187 But now, you have gone away, for you longed for your father's house, but why have you stolen my gods? Bereshit 31:30


+ 189 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


+ 219 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


+ 195 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


+ 199 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


+ 206 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


+ 192 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


+ 292 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


+ 160 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


+ 204 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


+ 174 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


+ 183 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


+ 220 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


+ 213 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


+ 147 So now, come, let us form a covenant, you and I, and may He be a witness between me and you." Bereshit 31:44


+ 159 So Jacob took a stone and set it up as a monument. Bereshit 31:45


+ 174 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


+ 169 And Laban called it Yegar Sahadutha, but Jacob called it Gal ed. Bereshit 31:47


+ 172 And Laban said, This pile is a witness between me and you today. Therefore, he called it Gal ed. Bereshit 31:48


+ 139 And Mizpah, because he said, May the Lord look between me and you when we are hidden from each other. Bereshit 31:49


+ 169 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


+ 180 And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this pile and behold this monument, which I have cast between me and you. Bereshit 31:51


+ 154 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


+ 195 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


+ 184 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


+ 165 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


+ 180 And Jacob went on his way, and angels of God met him. Bereshit 32:2


+ 178 And Jacob said when he saw them, This is the camp of God, and he named the place Mahanaim. Bereshit 32:3


+ 168 Jacob sent angels ahead of him to his brother Esau, to the land of Seir, the field of Edom. Bereshit 32:4


+ 170 And he commanded them, saying, So shall you say to my master to Esau, Thus said your servant Jacob, I have sojourned with Laban, and I have tarried until now. Bereshit 32:5


+ 185 And I have acquired oxen and donkeys, flocks, manservants, and maidservants, and I have sent to tell this to my master, to find favor in your eyes. Bereshit 32:6


+ 177 The angels returned to Jacob, saying, We came to your brother, to Esau, and he is also coming toward you, and four hundred men are with him. Bereshit 32:7


+ 211 Jacob became very frightened and was distressed; so he divided the people who were with him and the flocks and the cattle and the camels into two camps. Bereshit 32:8


+ 162 And he said, If Esau comes to one camp and strikes it down, the remaining camp will escape. Bereshit 32:9


+ 207 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


+ 188 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


+ 148 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


+ 177 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


+ 165 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


+ 146 Two hundred she goats and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, Bereshit 32:15


+ 189 Thirty nursing camels with their young, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty she donkeys and ten he donkeys. Bereshit 32:16


+ 163 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


+ 172 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


+ 216 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


+ 178 And he commanded also the second one, also the third one, also all those who followed the herds, saying, "In this manner shall you speak to Esau when you meet him. Bereshit 32:20


+ 195 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


+ 165 So the gift passed on before him, and he lodged that night in the camp. Bereshit 32:22


+ 150 And he arose during that night, and he took his two wives and his two maidservants and his eleven children, and he crossed the ford of the Jabbok. Bereshit 32:23


+ 148 And he took them and brought them across the stream, and he took across what was his. Bereshit 32:24


+ 164 And Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until the break of dawn. Bereshit 32:25


+ 230 When he saw that he could not prevail against him, he touched the socket of his hip, and the socket of Jacob's hip became dislocated as he wrestled with him. Bereshit 32:26


+ 179 And the angel said, Let me go, for dawn is breaking, but Jacob said, I will not let you go unless you have blessed me. Bereshit 32:27


+ 167 So he said to him, What is your name? and he said, Jacob. Bereshit 32:28


+ 216 And he said, Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, because you have commanding power with an angel of God and with men, and you have prevailed. Bereshit 32:29


+ 199 And Jacob asked and said, Now tell me your name, and he said, Why is it that you ask for my name? And he blessed him there. Bereshit 32:30


+ 190 And Jacob named the place Peniel, for he said, I saw an angel face to face, and my soul was saved. Bereshit 32:31


+ 156 And the sun rose for him when he passed Penuel, and he was limping on his thigh. Bereshit 32:32


+ 199 Therefore, the children of Israel may not eat the displaced tendon, which is on the socket of the hip, until this day, for he touched the socket of Jacob's hip, in the hip sinew. Bereshit 32:33


+ 196 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


+ 164 And he placed the maidservants and their children first and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and her Joseph last. Bereshit 33:2


+ 160 And he went ahead of them and prostrated himself to the ground seven times, until he came close to his brother. Bereshit 33:3


+ 132 And Esau ran toward him and embraced him, and he fell on his neck and kissed him, and they wept. Bereshit 33:4


+ 179 And he lifted his eyes and saw the women and the children, and he said, Who are these to you? And he said, The children with whom God has favored your servant. Bereshit 33:5


+ 147 And the maidservants and their children drew near and prostrated themselves. Bereshit 33:6


+ 142 And Leah and her children drew near and prostrated themselves, and after them, Joseph and Rachel drew near and prostrated themselves. Bereshit 33:7


+ 157 And he said, What is to you the purpose of all this camp that I have met? And he said, To find favor in my master's eyes. Bereshit 33:8


+ 150 But Esau said, I have plenty, my brother; let what you have remain yours. Bereshit 33:9


+ 205 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


+ 169 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


+ 158 Thereupon, he said, Travel and we will go, and I will go alongside you. Bereshit 33:12


+ 169 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


+ 172 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


+ 165 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


+ 156 So Esau returned on that day on his way to Seir. Bereshit 33:16


+ 182 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


+ 181 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


+ 153 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


+ 147 There he erected an altar, and he named it "God is the God of Israel." Bereshit 33:20


+ 168 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


+ 145 And Shechem the son of Hamor, the Hivvite, the prince of the land, saw her, and he took her, lay with her, and violated her. Bereshit 34:2


+ 207 And his soul cleaved to Dinah the daughter of Jacob; he loved the girl and spoke to the girl's heart. Bereshit 34:3


+ 141 And Shechem spoke to his father Hamor saying, "Take this girl for me as a wife." Bereshit 34:4


+ 188 Jacob had heard that he had defiled his daughter Dinah, but his sons were with his livestock in the field, and Jacob kept silent until they came home. Bereshit 34:5


+ 169 And Hamor, the father of Shechem, went out to Jacob to speak with him. Bereshit 34:6


+ 199 And Jacob's sons had come from the field when they heard, and the men were grieved, and they burned fiercely, because he had committed a scandalous act in Israel, to lie with a daughter of Jacob, and such ought not to be done. Bereshit 34:7


+ 153 And Hamor spoke with them, saying, "My son Shechem his soul has a liking for your daughter. Please give her to him for a wife. Bereshit 34:8


+ 163 And intermarry with us; you shall give us your daughters, and you shall take our daughters for yourselves. Bereshit 34:9


+ 147 And you shall dwell with us, and the land shall be before you; remain, do business there and settle there." Bereshit 34:10


+ 168 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


+ 148 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


+ 261 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


+ 174 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


+ 180 But with this, however, we will consent to you, if you will be like us, that every male will be circumcised. Bereshit 34:15


+ 157 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


+ 143 But if you do not listen to us to be circumcised, we will take our daughter and go. Bereshit 34:17


+ 155 Their words pleased Hamor and Shechem, the son of Hamor. Bereshit 34:18


+ 182 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


+ 145 And Hamor and his son Shechem came to the gate of their city, and they spoke to the people of their city, saying, Bereshit 34:20


+ 140 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


+ 152 However, only with this condition will the men consent to dwell with us, to become one people, by every male among us being circumcised, just as they are circumcised. Bereshit 34:22


+ 169 Then shall not their cattle, their property, and all their beasts be ours? But let us consent to them, and they will dwell with us. Bereshit 34:33


+ 152 And all those coming out of the gate of his city listened to Hamor and his son Shechem, and every male, all who went out of the gate of his city, became circumcised. Bereshit 34:24


+ 235 Now it came to pass on the third day, when they were in pain, that Jacob's two sons, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, each took his sword, and they came upon the city with confidence, and they slew every male. Bereshit 34:25


+ 141 And Hamor and his son Shechem they slew with the edge of the sword, and they took Dinah out of Shechem's house and left. Bereshit 34:26


+ 158 Jacob's sons came upon the slain and plundered the city that had defiled their sister. Bereshit 34:27


+ 162 Their flocks and their cattle and their donkeys, and whatever was in the city and whatever was in the field they took. Bereshit 34:28


+ 154 And all their wealth and all their infants and their wives they captured and plundered, and all that was in the house. Bereshit 34:29


+ 219 Thereupon, Jacob said to Simeon and to Levi, You have troubled me, to discredit me among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and among the Perizzites, and I am few in number, and they will gather against me, and I and my household will be destroyed. Bereshit 34:30


+ 147 And they said, Shall he make our sister like a harlot? Bereshit 34:31


+ 153 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


+ 201 Thereupon Jacob said to his household and to all those who were with him, Remove the deities of the foreign nations, which are in your midst, purify yourselves and change your clothes. Bereshit 35:2


+ 167 And we will arise and go up to Beth el, and I will make an altar to the God Who answered me on the day of my distress, and was with me on the way that I went." Bereshit 35:3


+ 195 And they gave Jacob all the deities of the nations that were in their possession and the earrings that were in their ears, and Jacob hid them under the terebinth that was near Shechem. Bereshit 35:4


+ 195 Then they traveled, and the fear of God was upon the cities that were around them, so that they did not pursue Jacob's sons. Bereshit 35:5


+ 169 And Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan that is Beth el he and all the people who were with him. Bereshit 35:6


+ 159 He built there an altar, and he called the place El Beth el, for there God had been revealed to him when he fled from before his brother Esau. Bereshit 35:7


+ 143 And Deborah, Rebecca's nurse, died, and she was buried beneath Beth el, beneath the plain; so he named it Allon Bachuth. Bereshit 35:8


+ 186 And God appeared again to Jacob when he came from Padan aram, and He blessed him. Bereshit 35:9


+ 190 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


+ 180 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


+ 187 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


+ 156 And God went up from him in the place where He had spoken with him. Bereshit 35:13


+ 182 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


+ 161 Jacob named the place where God had spoken with him Beth el. Bereshit 35:15


+ 149 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


+ 165 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


+ 156 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


+ 145 So Rachel died, and she was buried on the road to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem. Bereshit 35:19


+ 169 And Jacob erected a monument on her grave; that is the tombstone of Rachel until this day. Bereshit 35:20


+ 149 Israel journeyed, and he pitched his tent at some distance past the Tower of Eder. Bereshit 35:21


+ 183 And it came to pass when Israel sojourned in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah, his father's concubine, and Israel heard of it, and so, the sons of Jacob were twelve. Bereshit 35:22


+ 169 The sons of Leah were Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun. Bereshit 35:23


+ 143 The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin. Bereshit 35:24


+ 136 The sons of Bilhah, Rachel's maidservant: Dan and Naphtali. Bereshit 35:25


+ 176 The sons of Zilpah, Leah's maidservant: Gad and Asher. These are Jacob's sons who were born to him in Padan aram. Bereshit 35:26


+ 165 And Jacob came to his father Isaac, to Mamre, Kiriath arba, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac dwelt. Bereshit 35:27


+ 171 The days of Isaac were a hundred and eighty years. Bereshit 35:28


+ 189 And Isaac expired and died and was gathered in to his peoples, old and sated with days, and his sons, Esau and Jacob, buried him. Bereshit 35:29


+ 162 And these are the generations of Esau, that is, Edom. Bereshit 36:1


+ 152 Esau took his wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah, daughter of Elon the Hittite; and Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, daughter of Zibeon the Hivvite; Bereshit 36:2


+ 129 Also Basemath, daughter of Ishmael, sister of Nebaioth. Bereshit 36:3


+ 139 Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau and Basemath bore Reuel. Bereshit 36:4


+ 142 Oholibamah bore Jeush and Jalam and Korah; these are the sons of Esau who were born to him in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 36:5


+ 192 And Esau took his wives, his sons, and his daughters and all the people of his household, and his cattle and all his animals and all his property that he had acquired in the land of Canaan, and he went to a nother land, because of his brother Jacob. Bereshit 36:6


+ 172 For their possessions were too numerous for them to dwell together, and the land of their sojournings could not support them because of their livestock. Bereshit 36:7


+ 121 So Esau dwelt on Mount Seir Esau, that is Edom. Bereshit 36:8


+ 132 And these are the generations of Esau the progenitor of Edom, on Mount Seir. Bereshit 36:9


+ 145 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


+ 145 The sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gaatam, and Kenaz. Bereshit 36:11


+ 145 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


+ 167 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


+ 165 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


+ 151 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


+ 152 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


+ 159 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


+ 149 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


+ 129 These are the sons of Esau and these are their chieftains, he is Edom. Bereshit 36:19


+ 158 These are the sons of Seir the Horite, the inhabitants of the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, and Anah; Bereshit 36:20


+ 136 Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These are the chieftains of the Horites, the sons of Seir in the land of Edom. Bereshit 36:21


+ 128 The sons of Lotan were Hori and Hemam, and the sister of Lotan was Timna. Bereshit 36:22


+ 144 And these are the sons of Shobal: Alvan, Manahath, and Ebal, Shepho and Onam. Bereshit 36:23


+ 162 And these are the sons of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah he is Anah who found the mules in the wilderness when he pastured the donkeys for his father Zibeon. Bereshit 36:24


+ 129 And these are the sons of Anah: Dishon and Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah. Bereshit 36:25


+ 133 And these are the sons of Dishan: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran. Bereshit 36:26


+ 142 These are the sons of Ezer: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan. Bereshit 36:27


+ 135 These are the sons of Dishan: Uz and Aran. Bereshit 36:28


+ 138 These are the chieftains of the Horites: Chief Lotan, Chief Shobal, Chief Zibeon, Chief Anah, Bereshit 36:29


+ 140 Chief Dishon, Chief Ezer, and Chief Dishan; these are the chieftains of the Horites according to their chieftains in the land of Edom. Bereshit 36:30


+ 151 And these are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom before any king reigned over the children of Israel: Bereshit 36:31


+ 152 Bela, son of Beor reigned in Edom, and the name of his city was Dinhabah. Bereshit 36:32


+ 157 Bela died, and Jobab, son of Zerah of Bozrah, reigned in his stead. Bereshit 36:33


+ 150 And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of the Temanites reigned in his stead. Bereshit 36:34


+ 141 Husham died, and Hadad, son of Bedad, who defeated Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead. The name of his city was Avith. Bereshit 36:35


+ 124 Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead. Bereshit 36:36


+ 134 Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead. Bereshit 36:37


+ 130 Saul died, and Baal Hanan, son of Achbor, reigned in his stead. Bereshit 36:38


+ 160 Baal Hanan, son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his stead. The name of his city was Pau; his wife's name was Mehetabel, daughter of Matred, the daughter of Me zahab. Bereshit 36:39


+ 162 And these are the names of the chieftains of Esau, according to their clans, according to their places, by their names: Chief Timna, Chief Alvah, Chief Jetheth; Bereshit 36:40


+ 124 Chief Oholibamah, Chief Elah, Chief Pinon, Bereshit 36:41


+ 134 Chief Kenaz, Chief Teman, Chief Mibzar, Bereshit 36:42


+ 167 Chief Magdiel, Chief Iram. These are the chieftains of Edom according to their dwelling places in the land of their possession. That is Esau, progenitor of the Edomites. Bereshit 36:43


+ 159 Jacob dwelt in the land of his father's sojournings, in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 37:1


+ 202 These are the generations of Jacob: when Joseph was seventeen years old, being a shepherd, he was with his brothers with the flocks, and he was a lad, and was with the sons of Bilhah and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives; and Joseph brought evil tales about them to their father. Bereshit 37:2


+ 201 And Israel loved Joseph more than all his sons, because he was a son of his old age; and he made him a fine woolen coat. Bereshit 37:3


+ 202 And his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, so they hated him, and they could not speak with him peacefully. Bereshit 37:4


+ 149 And Joseph dreamed a dream and told his brothers, and they continued to hate him. Bereshit 37:5


+ 144 And he said to them, Listen now to this dream, which I have dreamed: Bereshit 37:6


+ 173 Behold, we were binding sheaves in the midst of the field, and behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright, and behold, your sheaves encircled it and prostrated themselves to my sheaf. Bereshit 37:7


+ 138 So his brothers said to him, Will you reign over us, or will you govern us? And they continued further to hate him on account of his dreams and on account of his words. Bereshit 37:8


+ 179 And he again dreamed another dream, and he related it to his brothers, and he said, Behold, I have dreamed another dream, and behold, the sun, the moon, and eleven stars were prostrating themselves to me. Bereshit 37:9


+ 180 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


+ 124 So his brothers envied him, but his father awaited the matter. Bereshit 37:11


+ 149 And his brothers went to pasture their father's flocks in Shechem. Bereshit 37:12


+ 188 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


+ 169 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


+ 156 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


+ 157 And he said, I am looking for my brothers. Tell me now, where are they pasturing? Bereshit 37:16


+ 173 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


+ 171 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


+ 142 So they said one to the other, Behold, that dreamer is coming. Bereshit 37:19


+ 152 So now, let us kill him, and we will cast him into one of the pits, and we will say, A wild beast devoured him, and we will see what will become of his dreams. Bereshit 37:20


+ 158 But Reuben heard, and he saved him from their hands, and he said, Let us not deal him a deadly blow. Bereshit 37:21


+ 176 And Reuben said to them, Do not shed blood! Cast him into this pit, which is in the desert, but do not lay a hand upon him, in order to save him from their hands, to return him to his father. Bereshit 37:22


+ 166 Now it came to pass when Joseph came to his brothers, that they stripped Joseph of his shirt, of the fine woolen coat which was upon him. Bereshit 37:23


+ 143 And they took him and cast him into the pit; now the pit was empty there was no water in it. Bereshit 37:24


+ 185 And they sat down to eat a meal, and they lifted their eyes and saw, and behold, a caravan of Ishmaelites was coming from Gilead, and their camels were carrying spices, balm, and lotus, going to take it down to Egypt. Bereshit 37:25


+ 137 And Judah said to his brothers, What is the gain if we slay our brother and cover up his blood? Bereshit 37:26


+ 174 Come, let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, but our hand shall not be upon him, for he is our brother, our flesh. And his brothers hearkened. Bereshit 37:27


+ 190 Then Midianite men, merchants, passed by, and they pulled and lifted Joseph from the pit, and they sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty silver pieces, and they brought Joseph to Egypt. Bereshit 37:28


+ 146 And Reuben returned to the pit, and behold, Joseph was not in the pit; so he rent his garments. Bereshit 37:29


+ 136 And he returned to his brothers and said, The boy is gone! And I where will I go? Bereshit 37:30


+ 129 And they took Joseph's coat, and they slaughtered a kid, and they dipped the coat in the blood. Bereshit 37:31


+ 164 And they sent the fine woolen coat, and they brought it to their father, and they said, "We have found this; now recognize whether it is your son's coat or not." Bereshit 37:32


+ 168 He recognized it, and he said, "It is my son's coat; a wild beast has devoured him; Joseph has surely been torn up." Bereshit 37:33


+ 197 And Jacob rent his garments, and he put sackcloth on his loins, and he mourned for his son many days. Bereshit 37:34


+ 189 And all his sons and all his daughters arose to console him, but he refused to be consoled, for he said, Because I will descend on account of my son as a mourner to the grave; and his father wept for him. Bereshit 37:35


+ 146 And the Midianites sold him to Egypt, to Potiphar, Pharaoh's chamberlain, chief of the slaughterers. Bereshit 37:36


+ 169 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


+ 143 And there Judah saw the daughter of a merchant named Shua, and he took her and came to her. Bereshit 38:2


+ 135 And she conceived and bore a son, and he named him Er. Bereshit 38:3


+ 135 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she named him Onan. Bereshit 38:4


+ 153 Once again she bore a son, and she named him Shelah, and he (Judah) was in Chezib when she gave birth to him. Bereshit 38:5


+ 152 And Judah took a wife for Er, his firstborn, named Tamar. Bereshit 38:6


+ 140 Now Er, Judah's firstborn, was evil in the eyes of the Lord, and the Lord put him to death. Bereshit 38:7


+ 159 So Judah said to Onan, "Come to your brother's wife and perform the rite of the levirate, and raise up progeny for your brother." Bereshit 38:8


+ 163 Now Onan knew that the progeny would not be his, and it came about, when he came to his brother's wife, he wasted his semen on the ground, in order not to give seed to his brother. Bereshit 38:9


+ 150 Now what he did was evil in the eyes of the Lord, and He put him to death also. Bereshit 38:10


+ 187 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


+ 184 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


+ 155 And it was told to Tamar, saying, Behold, your father in law is going up to Timnah to shear his sheep. Bereshit 38:13


+ 207 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


+ 255 When Judah saw her, he thought she was a harlot, because she covered her face. Bereshit 38:15


+ 172 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


+ 174 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


+ 171 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


+ 149 Then she arose and went away, and she took off her veil, and she donned her widow's garb. Bereshit 38:19


+ 166 And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his Adullamite friend to take the pledge from the woman's hand, but he did not find her. Bereshit 38:20


+ 198 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


+ 174 So he returned to Judah, and he said, I have not found her, and the people of the place also said, No harlot was here. Bereshit 38:22


+ 166 So Judah said, Let her take them for herself, lest we become a laughingstock. Behold, I sent this kid, but you did not find her. Bereshit 38:23


+ 198 Now it came about after nearly three months, that it was told to Judah, saying, Your daughter in law Tamar has played the harlot, and behold, she is pregnant from harlotry. So Judah said, Bring her out, and let her be burned. Bereshit 38:24


+ 179 She was taken out, and she sent to her father in law, saying, From the man to whom these belong I am pregnant, and she said, Please recognize whose signet ring, cloak, and staff are these? Bereshit 38:25


+ 194 Then Judah recognized them, and he said, She is right, it is from me, because I did not give her to my son Shelah. But he no longer continued to be intimate with her. Bereshit 38:26


+ 159 And it came about at the time she was giving birth, that behold, there were twins in her womb. Bereshit 38:27


+ 212 And it came about when she gave birth, that he (the infant) stretched out his hand. So the midwife took and bound a crimson thread on his hand, saying, This one came out first. Bereshit 38:28


+ 178 And it came about, as he was drawing back his hand, behold, his brother emerged, and she said, With what strength you have strengthened yourself! And he named him Perez. Bereshit 38:29


+ 171 Afterwards, his brother emerged, the one upon whose hand was the crimson thread, and he named him Zerah. Bereshit 38:30


+ 158 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


+ 159 The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master. Bereshit 39:2


+ 149 And his master saw that the Lord was with him, and whatever he did the Lord made prosper in his hand. Bereshit 39:3


+ 166 And Joseph found favor in his eyes, and he served him, and he (Potiphar) appointed him over his house, and all he had he gave into his hand. Bereshit 39:4


+ 173 Now it came to pass that since he had appointed him over his house and over all that he had, the Lord blessed the house of the Egyptian for Joseph's sake, and the blessing of the Lord was in all that he had, in the house and in the field. Bereshit 39:5


+ 167 So he left all that he had in Joseph's hand, and he knew nothing about what was with him except the bread that he ate; and Joseph had handsome features and a beautiful complexion. Bereshit 39:6


+ 168 Now it came to pass after these events that his master's wife lifted up her eyes to Joseph, and she said, Lie with me. Bereshit 39:7


+ 175 But he refused, and he said to his master's wife, Behold, with me my master knows nothing about anything in the house, and all he has he has given into my hand. Bereshit 39:8


+ 177 In this house, there is no one greater than I, and he has not withheld anything from me except you, insofar as you are his wife. Now how can I commit this great evil, and sin against God? Bereshit 39:9


+ 157 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


+ 168 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


+ 154 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


+ 134 Now it happened, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand and had fled outside, Bereshit 39:13


+ 143 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


+ 160 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


+ 146 So she left his garment beside her, until his master came home. Bereshit 39:16


+ 147 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


+ 148 And it happened when I raised my voice and called out, that he left his garment beside me and fled outside." Bereshit 39:18


+ 169 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


+ 156 So Joseph's master took him and put him into prison, the place where the king's prisoners were imprisoned, and he was there in the prison. Bereshit 39:20


+ 163 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


+ 195 So the warden of the prison delivered all the prisoners who were in the prison into Joseph's hand, and whatever they did there, he was the one who did it. Bereshit 39:22


+ 156 The warden of the prison did not inspect anything that was in his (Joseph's) hand, for the Lord was with him, and whatever he did the Lord made prosper. Bereshit 39:23


+ 159 And he placed them in the prison of the house of the chief of the slaughterers, into the prison, the place where Joseph was imprisoned. Bereshit 40:3


+ 259 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


+ 158 But the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, and he forgot him. Bereshit 40:23


+ 172 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


+ 143 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


+ 148 And behold, seven ears of grain, hardened, thin, and beaten by the east wind, were growing up after them. Bereshit 41:23


+ 157 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


+ 151 And the plenty will not be known because of that famine to follow, for it will be very severe. Bereshit 41:31


+ 160 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


+ 142 So now, let Pharaoh seek out an understanding and wise man and appoint him over the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:33


+ 140 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


+ 150 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


+ 151 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


+ 173 The matter pleased Pharaoh and all his servants. Bereshit 41:37


+ 142 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


+ 167 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


+ 155 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


+ 144 And the seven years of plenty that were in the land of Egypt were finished. Bereshit 41:53


+ 139 So Joseph's ten brothers went down to buy grain from Egypt. Bereshit 42:3


+ 162 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


+ 144 They did not know that Joseph understood, for the interpreter was between them. Bereshit 42:23


+ 124 The man, the lord of the land, spoke to us harshly, and he accused us of spying on the land. Bereshit 42:30


+ 131 And we said to him, We are honest; we were never spies. Bereshit 42:31


+ 146 We are twelve brothers, the sons of our father; one is gone, and today the youngest is with our father in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 42:32


+ 171 And the man, the lord of the land, said to us, With this I will know that you are honest; leave one of your brothers with me, and what is needed for the hunger of your households, take and go. Bereshit 42:33


+ 158 And bring your youngest brother to me, so that I will know that you are not spies, that you are honest; then I will give you your brother, and you may travel around in the land. Bereshit 42:34


+ 145 And it came to pass that they were emptying their sacks and behold! Each one's bundle of money was in his sack; they saw the bundles of their money, they and their father, and they became frightened. Bereshit 42:35


+ 189 And their father Jacob said to them, You have bereaved me-Joseph is gone, and Simeon is gone, and you want to take Benjamin! All these troubles have come upon me. Bereshit 42:36


+ 167 And Reuben spoke to his father, saying, You may put my two sons to death if I don't bring him to you. Put him into my hands and I will return him to you. Bereshit 42:37


+ 190 But he Jacob said, My son shall not go down with you, because his brother is dead, and he alone is left, and if misfortune befalls him on the way you are going, you will bring down my gray head in sorrow to the grave. Bereshit 42:38


+ 118 But the hunger was severe in the land. Bereshit 43:1


+ 148 And it came to pass, when they finished eating the grain that they had brought from Egypt, that their father said to them, "Go back and buy us a little food." Bereshit 43:2


+ 168 But Judah spoke to him, saying, The man warned us repeatedly, saying, You shall not see my face if your brother is not with you. Bereshit 43:3


+ 129 If you send our brother with us, we will go down and buy food for you. Bereshit 43:4


+ 175 But if you do not send him, we will not go down, because the man said to us, You shall not see my face if your brother is not with you. Bereshit 43:5


+ 158 And Israel said, Why have you harmed me, by telling the man that you have another brother? Bereshit 43:6


+ 166 They said, The man asked about us and about our family, saying, Is your father still alive? Do you have a brother? And we told him according to these words. Could we have known that he would say, Bring your brother down? Bereshit 43:7


+ 171 And Judah said to Israel, his father, Send the lad with me, and we will get up and go, and we will live and not die, both we and you and also our young children. Bereshit 43:8


+ 145 I will guarantee him; from my hand you can demand him. If I do not bring him to you and stand him up before you, I will have sinned against you forever. Bereshit 43:9


+ 123 For had we not tarried, by now we would have already returned twice. Bereshit 43:10


+ 198 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


+ 159 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


+ 135 And take your brother, and get up, go back to the man. Bereshit 43:13


+ 163 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


+ 155 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


+ 161 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


+ 132 And the man did as Joseph had said, and the man brought the men into Joseph's house. Bereshit 43:17


+ 193 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


+ 146 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


+ 139 And they said, Please, my lord, we came down at first to purchase food. Bereshit 43:20


+ 152 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


+ 130 And we brought down other money in our hands to purchase food. We do not know who put our money into our sacks. Bereshit 43:22


+ 155 And he said, Peace to you; fear not. Your God and the God of your father gave you a treasure in your sacks; your money came to me. And he brought Simeon out to them. Bereshit 43:23


+ 175 Then the man brought the men (the brothers) into Joseph's house, and he gave them water, and they washed their feet, and he gave fodder to their donkeys. Bereshit 43:24


+ 144 And they prepared the gift until Joseph would come at lunchtime, for they heard that there they would eat bread. Bereshit 43:25


+ 142 And Joseph came home, and they brought him the gift that was in their hands, into the house, and they prostrated themselves to him to the ground. Bereshit 43:26


+ 153 He inquired after their welfare, and he said to them, Is your elderly father, whom you mentioned, well? Is he still alive? Bereshit 43:27


+ 152 And they said, Your servant, our father, is well; he is still alive. And they bowed and prostrated themselves. Bereshit 43:28


+ 171 And he lifted his eyes and saw Benjamin, his brother, the son of his mother, and he said, Is this your little brother, whom you told me about? And he said, May God favor you, my son. Bereshit 43:29


+ 148 And Joseph hastened, for his mercy was stirred toward his brother, and he wanted to weep; so he went into the room and wept there. Bereshit 43:30


+ 130 And he washed his face and came out, and he restrained himself and said, "Serve the food." Bereshit 43:31


+ 152 And they set for him separately and for them separately, and for the Egyptians who ate with him separately, because the Egyptians could not eat food with the Hebrews, because it is an abomination to the Egyptians. Bereshit 43:32


+ 127 They sat before him, the firstborn according to his age, and the youngest according to his youth, and the men looked at each other in astonishment. Bereshit 43:33


+ 158 And he had portions brought to them from before him, and Benjamin's portion was five times as large as the portions of any of them, and they drank and became intoxicated with him. Bereshit 43:34


+ 157 The morning became light, and the men were sent on their way they and their donkeys. Bereshit 44:3


+ 134 So they rent their garments, and each one loaded his donkey, and they returned to the city. Bereshit 44:13


+ 168 And you said to your servants, If your youngest brother does not come down with you, you will not see my face again. Bereshit 44:23


+ 142 And now, when I come to your servant, my father, and the boy is not with us since his soul is attached to his (the boy's) soul, Bereshit 44:30


+ 138 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


+ 151 For your servant assumed responsibility for the boy from my father, saying, 'If I do not bring him to you, I will have sinned against my father forever.' Bereshit 44:32


+ 168 So now, please let your servant stay instead of the boy as a slave to my lord, and may the boy go up with his brothers. Bereshit 44:33


+ 178 For how will I go up to my father if the boy is not with me? Let me not see the misery that will befall my father!" Bereshit 44:34


+ 183 And Joseph said to his brothers, I am Joseph. Is my father still alive? but his brothers could not answer him because they were startled by his presence. Bereshit 45:3


+ 154 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


+ 162 And to his father he sent the following: ten he donkeys carrying of the best of Egypt, and ten she donkeys carrying grain, bread, and other food, for his father for the way. Bereshit 45:23


+ 155 And He said, I am God, the God of your father. Do not be afraid of going down to Egypt, for there I will make you into a great nation. Bereshit 46:3


+ 144 And the sons of Issachar were Tola, Puvvah, Iob, and Shimron. Bereshit 46:13


+ 121 And the sons of Dan: Hushim. Bereshit 46:23


+ 157 And Israel said to Joseph, I will die this time, since I have seen your face, that you are still alive. Bereshit 46:30


+ 145 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


+ 171 The men are shepherds, for they were always owners of livestock, and their flocks and their cattle and all they have they have brought. Bereshit 46:32


+ 139 And if it comes to pass that Pharaoh calls you and asks, 'What is your occupation?' Bereshit 46:33


+ 188 You shall say, Your servants have been owners of livestock from our youth until now, both we and our ancestors, so that you may dwell in the land of Goshen, because all shepherds are abhorrent to the Egyptians. Bereshit 46:34


+ 160 And Pharaoh said to his brothers, "What is your occupation?" And they said to Pharaoh, "Your servants are shepherds, both we and our forefathers." Bereshit 47:3


+ 142 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


+ 155 Joseph said to the people, Behold, I have bought you and your farmland today for Pharaoh. Behold, you have seed, so sow the soil. Bereshit 47:23


+ 163 I will lie with my forefathers, and you shall carry me out of Egypt, and you shall bury me in their grave." And he said, "I will do as you say." Bereshit 47:30


+ 143 And he said, "Swear to me. " So he swore to him, and Israel prostrated himself on the head of the bed. Bereshit 47:31


+ 190 And Jacob said to Joseph, "Almighty God appeared to me in Luz, in the land of Canaan, and He blessed me. Bereshit 48:3


+ 163 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


+ 138 Reuben, you are my firstborn, my strength and the first of my might. You should have been superior in rank and superior in power. Bereshit 49:3


+ 146 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


+ 130 They heaped bitterness upon him and became quarrelsome; yea, archers despised him. Bereshit 49:23


+ 196 in the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre in the land of Canaan, which field Abraham bought from Ephron the Hittite for burial property. Bereshit 49:30


+ 152 There they buried Abraham and his wife Sarah, there they buried Isaac and his wife Rebecca, and there I buried Leah. Bereshit 49:31


+ 150 The purchase of the field and the cave therein was from the sons of Heth. Bereshit 49:32


+ 180 And Jacob concluded commanding his sons, and he drew his legs up into the bed, and expired and was brought in to his people. Bereshit 49:33


+ 167 And forty days were completed for him for so are the days of embalming completed and the Egyptians wept over him for seventy days. Bereshit 50:3


+ 178 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


+ 164 Joseph saw children of a third generation born to Ephraim; also the sons of Machir the son of Manasseh were born on Joseph's knees. Bereshit 50:23


+ 163 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin. Shemot 1:3


+ 157 So the Egyptians enslaved the children of Israel with back breaking labor. Shemot 1:13


+ 180 When she could no longer hide him, she took for him a reed basket, smeared it with clay and pitch, placed the child into it, and put it into the marsh at the Nile's edge. Shemot 2:3


+ 171 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


+ 192 Now it came to pass in those many days that the king of Egypt died, and the children of Israel sighed from the labor, and they cried out, and their cry ascended to God from the labor. Shemot 2:23


+ 173 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


+ 144 An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from within the thorn bush, and behold, the thorn bush was burning with fire, but the thorn bush was not being consumed. Shemot 3:2


+ 137 So Moses said, Let me turn now and see this great spectacle why does the thorn bush not burn up? Shemot 3:3


+ 149 The Lord saw that he had turned to see, and God called to him from within the thorn bush, and He said, Moses, Moses! And he said, Here I am! Shemot 3:4


+ 140 And He said, Do not draw near here. Take your shoes off your feet, because the place upon which you stand is holy soil. Shemot 3:5


+ 168 And He said, I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face because he was afraid to look toward God. Shemot 3:6


+ 163 And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and I have heard their cry because of their slave drivers, for I know their pains. Shemot 3:7


+ 165 I have descended to rescue them from the hands of the Egyptians and to bring them up from that land, to a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites. Shemot 3:8


+ 163 And now, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression that the Egyptians are oppressing them. Shemot 3:9


+ 147 So now come, and I will send you to Pharaoh, and take My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt. Shemot 3:10


+ 144 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


+ 147 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


+ 165 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


+ 175 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


+ 176 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


+ 176 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


+ 162 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


+ 160 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


+ 129 However, I know that the king of Egypt will not permit you to go, except through a mighty hand. Shemot 3:19


+ 157 And I will stretch forth My hand and smite the Egyptians with all My miracles that I will wreak in their midst, and afterwards he will send you out. Shemot 3:20


+ 129 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


+ 154 Each woman shall borrow from her neighbor and from the dweller in her house silver and gold objects and garments, and you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters, and you shall empty out Egypt. Shemot 3:22


+ 115 And He said, Cast it to the ground, and he cast it to the ground, and it became a serpent, and Moses fled from before it. Shemot 4:3


+ 137 But he said, I beseech You, O Lord, send now Your message with whom You would send. Shemot 4:13


+ 146 So I say to you, Send out My son so that he will worship Me, but if you refuse to send him out, behold, I am going to slay your firstborn son. Shemot 4:23


+ 144 And Aaron spoke all the words that the Lord had spoken to Moses, and he performed the signs before the eyes of the people. Shemot 4:30


+ 170 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


+ 159 And they said, The God of the Hebrews has happened upon us. Now let us go on a three day journey in the desert and sacrifice to the Lord our God, lest He strike us with a plague or with the sword. Shemot 5:3


+ 164 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


+ 151 Since I have come to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has harmed this people, and You have not saved Your people. Shemot 5:23


+ 187 I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob with the name Almighty God, but with My name YHWH, I did not become known to them. Shemot 6:3


+ 164 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


+ 147 Aaron took to himself for a wife, Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, and she bore him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. Shemot 6:23


+ 137 But Moses said before the Lord, Behold, I am of closed lips; so how will Pharaoh hearken to me? Shemot 6:30


+ 134 But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and I will increase My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt. Shemot 7:3


+ 157 But Pharaoh's heart remained steadfast, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 7:13


+ 134 Pharaoh turned and went home, and he paid no heed even to this. Shemot 7:23


+ 140 And the necromancers did likewise with their secret rites, and they brought up the frogs on the land of Egypt. Shemot 8:3


+ 141 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


+ 152 Let us go for a three day journey in the desert and sacrifice to the Lord, our God, as He will say to us." Shemot 8:23


+ 163 Behold, the hand of the Lord will be upon your livestock that is in the field, upon the horses, upon the donkeys, upon the camels, upon the cattle, and upon the sheep, a very severe pestilence. Shemot 9:3


+ 157 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 So Moses stretched forth his staff heavenward, and the Lord gave forth thunder and hail, and fire came down to the earth, and the Lord rained down hail upon the land of Egypt. Shemot 9:23


+ 154 But you and your servants I know that you still do not fear the Lord God, Shemot 9:30


+ 129 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


+ 142 The wheat and the spelt, however, have not been broken because they ripen late. Shemot 9:32


+ 164 Moses went away from Pharaoh, out of the city, and he spread out his hands to the Lord, and the thunder and the hail ceased, and rain did not come down to earth. Shemot 9:33


+ 125 And Pharaoh saw that the rain, the hail, and the thunder had ceased; so he continued to sin, and he strengthened his heart, he and his servants. Shemot 9:34


+ 160 And Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he did not let the children of Israel go out, as the Lord had spoken through the hand of Moses. Shemot 9:35


+ 162 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


+ 182 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 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


+ 154 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


+ 150 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


+ 139 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


+ 162 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


+ 150 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


+ 167 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


+ 125 Take also your flocks and also your cattle, as you have spoken, and go, but you shall also bless me. Shemot 12:32


+ 153 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


+ 156 The people picked up their dough when it was not yet leavened, their leftovers bound in their garments on their shoulders. Shemot 12:34


+ 172 And the children of Israel did according to Moses' order, and they borrowed from the Egyptians silver objects, golden objects, and garments. Shemot 12:35


+ 138 The Lord gave the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and they lent them, and they emptied out Egypt. Shemot 12:36


+ 153 The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot, the men, besides the young children. Shemot 12:37


+ 147 And also, a great mixed multitude went up with them, and flocks and cattle, very much livestock. Shemot 12:38


+ 143 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


+ 161 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


+ 116 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 13:1


+ 147 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


+ 169 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


+ 130 Today you are going out, in the month of spring. Shemot 13:4


+ 161 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


+ 144 For seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes, and on the seventh day, there is a festival for the Lord. Shemot 13:6


+ 155 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


+ 142 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


+ 135 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


+ 141 And you shall keep this statute at its appointed time, from year to year. Shemot 13:10


+ 123 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


+ 161 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


+ 128 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


+ 144 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


+ 192 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


+ 121 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


+ 154 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


+ 160 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


+ 181 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


+ 122 They traveled from Succoth, and they encamped in Etham, at the edge of the desert. Shemot 13:20


+ 110 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


+ 130 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


+ 152 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


+ 178 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


+ 135 The Egyptians pursued and came after them all Pharaoh s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen, into the midst of the sea. Shemot 14:23


+ 151 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


+ 157 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


+ 117 The Lord is a Master of war; the Lord is His Name. Shemot 15:3


+ 129 With Your loving kindness You led the people You redeemed; You led them with Your might to Your holy abode. Shemot 15:13


+ 147 They came to Marah, but they could not drink water from Marah because it was bitter; therefore, it was named Marah. Shemot 15:23


+ 181 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


+ 117 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


+ 154 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


+ 122 So the people rested on the seventh day. Shemot 16:30


+ 148 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


+ 155 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


+ 140 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


+ 141 As the Lord had commanded Moses, Aaron deposited it before the testimony to be preserved. Shemot 16:34


+ 154 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


+ 110 The omer is one tenth of an ephah. Shemot 16:36


+ 201 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


+ 130 Joshua weakened Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. Shemot 17:13


+ 139 And her two sons, one of whom was named Gershom, because he said, "I was a stranger in a foreign land," Shemot 18:3


+ 144 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


+ 145 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


+ 173 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


+ 157 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


+ 161 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


+ 144 You shall not have the gods of others in My presence. Shemot 20:3


+ 140 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


+ 130 And you shall not ascend with steps upon My altar, so that your nakedness shall not be exposed upon it. Shemot 20:23


+ 120 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


+ 137 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


+ 144 But if there is a fatality, you shall give a life for a life, Shemot 21:23


+ 130 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


+ 155 Or if it gores a young boy or a young girl, according to this ordinance shall be done to him. Shemot 21:31


+ 137 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


+ 127 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


+ 116 The owner of the pit shall pay; he shall return money to its owner, and the dead body shall be his. Shemot 21:34


+ 128 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


+ 135 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


+ 142 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


+ 141 If the stolen article is found in his possession whether a bull, a donkey, or a lamb live ones he shall pay twofold. Shemot 22:3


+ 147 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


+ 141 My wrath will be kindled, and I will slay you with the sword, and your wives will be widows and your children orphans. Shemot 22:23


+ 115 And you shall be holy people to Me, and flesh torn in the field you shall not eat; you shall throw it to the dogs. Shemot 22:30


+ 118 You shall not accept a false report; do not place your hand with a wicked person to be a false witness. Shemot 23:1


+ 131 You shall not follow the majority for evil, and you shall not respond concerning a lawsuit to follow many to pervert justice. Shemot 23:2


+ 140 Neither shall you glorify a poor man in his lawsuit. Shemot 23:3


+ 122 If you come upon your enemy's bull or his stray donkey, you shall surely return it to him. Shemot 23:4


+ 142 If you see your enemy's donkey lying under its burden would you refrain from helping him? You shall surely help along with him. Shemot 23:5


+ 140 You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor man in his lawsuit. Shemot 23:6


+ 145 Distance yourself from a false matter; and do not kill a truly innocent person or one who has been declared innocent, for I will not vindicate a guilty person. Shemot 23:7


+ 130 You shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe will blind the clear sighted and corrupt words that are right. Shemot 23:8


+ 130 And you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the feelings of the stranger, since you were strangers in the land of Egypt. Shemot 23:9


+ 104 Six years you may sow your land and gather in its produce. Shemot 23:10


+ 160 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


+ 143 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


+ 145 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


+ 124 Three times you shall slaughter sacrifices to Me during the year. Shemot 23:14


+ 157 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


+ 153 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


+ 113 Three times during the year, all your males shall appear before the Master, the Lord. Shemot 23:17


+ 141 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


+ 147 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


+ 144 Behold, I am sending an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. Shemot 23:20


+ 137 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


+ 132 For if you hearken to his voice and do all that I say, I will hate your enemies and oppress your adversaries. Shemot 23:22


+ 135 For My angel will go before you, and bring you to the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, and I will destroy them. Shemot 23:23


+ 150 You shall not prostrate yourself before their gods, and you shall not worship them, and you shall not follow their practices, but you shall tear them down and you shall utterly shatter their monuments. Shemot 23:24


+ 152 And you shall worship the Lord, your God, and He will bless your food and your drink, and I will remove illness from your midst. Shemot 23:25


+ 126 There will be no bereaved or barren woman in your land; I will fill the number of your days. Shemot 23:26


+ 126 I will send My fear before you, and I will confuse all the people among whom you shall come, and I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. Shemot 23:27


+ 134 And I will send the tzir'ah before you, and it will drive out the Hivvites, the Canaanites, and the Hittites from before you. Shemot 23:28


+ 133 I will not drive them away from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field outnumber you. Shemot 23:29


+ 133 I will drive them out from before you little by little, until you have increased and can occupy the land. Shemot 23:30


+ 161 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


+ 131 You shall not form a covenant for them or for their gods. Shemot 23:32


+ 139 They shall not dwell in your land, lest they cause you to sin against Me, that you will worship their gods, which will be a snare for you. Shemot 23:33


+ 160 So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the ordinances, and all the people answered in unison and said, "All the words that the Lord has spoken we will do." Shemot 24:3


+ 140 So Moses and Joshua, his servant, arose, and Moses ascended to the mount of God. Shemot 24:13


+ 132 And this is the offering that you shall take from them: gold, silver, and copper; Shemot 25:3


+ 127 And you shall make poles of acacia wood and you shall overlay them with gold. Shemot 25:13


+ 121 And you shall make a table of acacia wood, two cubits its length, one cubit its width, and a cubit and a half its height. Shemot 25:23


+ 110 And you shall place on the table showbread before Me at all times. Shemot 25:30


+ 217 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


+ 114 And six branches coming out of its sides: three menorah branches from its one side and three menorah branches from its second side. Shemot 25:32


+ 131 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 25:33


+ 166 And on the stem of the menorah shall be four decorated goblets, its knobs and its flowers. Shemot 25:34


+ 168 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 the menorah. Shemot 25:35


+ 143 Their knobs and their branches shall all be one piece with it; all of it shall be one hammered mass of pure gold. Shemot 25:36


+ 137 And you shall make its lamps seven, and he shall kindle its lamps so that they shed light toward its face. Shemot 25:37


+ 126 And its tongs and its scoops shall be of pure gold. Shemot 25:38


+ 120 He shall make it of a talent of pure gold, with all these implements. Shemot 25:39


+ 147 Five of these curtains shall be joined to one another, and the other five curtains shall also be joined to one another. Shemot 26:3


+ 128 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


+ 130 And you shall make two planks at the corners of the Mishkan at the end. Shemot 26:23


+ 129 And you shall erect the Mishkan according to its proper manner, as you will have been shown on the mountain. Shemot 26:30


+ 142 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


+ 144 And you shall place it on four pillars of acacia wood, overlaid with gold, their hooks shall be gold, on four silver sockets. Shemot 26:32


+ 140 And you shall place the dividing curtain beneath the clasps. You shall bring there on the inner side of the dividing curtain the Ark of the Testimony, and the dividing curtain shall separate for you between the Holy and the Holy of Holies. Shemot 26:33


+ 132 And you shall place the ark cover over the Ark of the Testimony in the Holy of Holies. Shemot 26:34


+ 148 And you shall place the table on the outer side of the dividing curtain and the menorah opposite the table, on the southern side of the Mishkan, and you shall place the table on the northern side. Shemot 26:35


+ 168 And you shall make a screen for the entrance of the tent, of blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen the work of an embroiderer. Shemot 26:36


+ 151 You shall make for the screen five pillars of acacia and overlay them with gold, their hooks shall be gold, and you shall cast for them five copper sockets. Shemot 26:37


+ 141 And you shall make its pots to remove its ashes, and its shovels and its sprinkling basins and its flesh hooks and its scoops; you shall make all its implements of copper. Shemot 27:3


+ 150 The width of the courtyard on the eastern side, fifty cubits. Shemot 27:13


+ 149 And you shall speak to all the wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, and they shall make Aaron's garments to sanctify him, so that he serve Me as a kohen. Shemot 28:3


+ 124 You shall make settings of gold, Shemot 28:13


+ 147 You shall make for the choshen two golden rings, and you shall place the two rings on the two ends of the choshen, Shemot 28:23


+ 152 You shall place the Urim and the Tummim into the choshen of judgment so that they will be over Aaron's heart when he comes before the Lord, and Aaron will carry the judgment of the children of Israel over his heart before the Lord at all times. Shemot 28:30


+ 127 And you shall make the robe of the ephod completely of blue wool. Shemot 28:31


+ 168 Its opening at the top shall be turned inward; its opening shall have a border around it, the work of a weaver. It shall have an opening like the opening of a coat of armor; it shall not be torn. Shemot 28:32


+ 148 And on its bottom hem you shall make pomegranates of blue, purple, and crimson wool, on its bottom hem all around, and golden bells in their midst all around. Shemot 28:33


+ 115 A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, on the bottom hem of the robe, all around. Shemot 28:34


+ 140 It shall be on Aaron when he performs the service, and its sound shall be heard when he enters the Holy before the Lord and when he leaves, so that he will not die. Shemot 28:35


+ 140 And you shall make a showplate of pure gold, and you shall engrave upon it like the engraving of a seal: Holy to the Lord. Shemot 28:36


+ 129 And you shall place it upon a cord of blue wool and it shall go over the cap, and it shall be opposite the front side of the cap. Shemot 28:37


+ 156 It shall be upon Aaron's forehead, and Aaron shall bear the iniquity of the holy things that the children of Israel sanctify, for all their holy gifts. It shall be upon his forehead constantly to make them favorable before the Lord. Shemot 28:38


+ 130 You shall make the linen tunic of checker work, and you shall make a linen cap; and you shall make a sash of embroidery work. Shemot 28:39


+ 160 They shall be worn by Aaron and by his sons when they enter the Tent of Meeting or when they approach the altar to serve in the Holy, so they will not bear iniquity and die. It shall be a perpetual statute for him and for his descendants after him. Shemot 28:43


+ 121 And you shall place them upon a basket, and you shall bring them in the basket, and the bull and the two rams. Shemot 29:3


+ 133 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


+ 120 And one loaf of bread, one loaf of oil bread, and one wafer from the basket of matzoth that stands before the Lord, Shemot 29:23


+ 130 Seven days shall the one of his sons who will be the kohen in his place wear them, the one who is to enter the Tent of Meeting to serve in the Holy. Shemot 29:30


+ 111 You shall take the ram of perfection and cook its flesh in a holy place. Shemot 29:31


+ 129 Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram and the bread that is in the basket, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 29:32


+ 135 They shall eat those things with which atonement has been effected, in order to invest them with full authority, to sanctify them, but a stranger shall not eat of them, because they are a sacred thing. Shemot 29:33


+ 143 If any of the flesh of the perfection offering or of the bread is left over until the next morning, what is left over you shall burn in fire; it shall not be eaten because it is a sacred thing. Shemot 29:34


+ 147 So shall you do to Aaron and his sons, according to all that I have commanded you; for seven days you shall perform their investiture. Shemot 29:35


+ 134 And a bull as a sin offering you shall offer up every day for the atonements, and you shall purify the altar by performing atonement upon it, and you shall anoint it, in order to sanctify it. Shemot 29:36


+ 144 For seven days you shall perform atonement upon the altar and sanctify it. Henceforth, the altar shall be a holy of holies. Whatever touches the altar will be holy. Shemot 29:37


+ 134 And this is what you shall offer upon the altar: lambs in their first year, two a day, continually. Shemot 29:38


+ 109 The one lamb you shall offer up in the morning and the other lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon. Shemot 29:39


+ 134 There I will arrange meetings with the children of Israel, and it will be sanctified by My glory. Shemot 29:43


+ 120 You shall make an altar for bringing incense up in smoke; you shall make it out of acacia wood. Shemot 30:1


+ 111 It shall be one cubit long and one cubit wide, a square, and two cubits high; its horns shall be one piece with it. Shemot 30:2


+ 132 You shall overlay it with pure gold, its top, its walls all around, and its horns; and you shall make for it a golden crown all around. Shemot 30:3


+ 140 You shall make two golden rings for it underneath its crown on its two corners, you shall make them on its two sides, so that it should serve as holders for poles with which to carry it. Shemot 30:4


+ 122 You shall make the poles out of acacia wood and overlay them with gold. Shemot 30:5


+ 150 And you shall place it in front of the dividing curtain, which is upon the Ark of Testimony, in front of the ark cover, which is upon the testimony, where I will arrange to meet with you. Shemot 30:6


+ 206 Aaron shall make incense of spices go up in smoke upon it; every morning when he sets the lamps in order, he shall make it go up in smoke. Shemot 30:7


+ 139 And when Aaron kindles the lights in the afternoon, he shall make it go up in smoke, continual incense before the Lord for your generations. shemot 30:8


+ 116 You shall offer up on it no alien incense, burnt offering, or meal offering, and you shall pour no libation upon it. Shemot 30:9


+ 140 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


+ 117 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:11


+ 142 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


+ 153 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


+ 137 Everyone who goes through the counting, from the age of twenty and upward, shall give an offering to the Lord. Shemot 30:14


+ 182 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


+ 137 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


+ 114 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:17


+ 132 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


+ 111 Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and feet from it. Shemot 30:19


+ 134 When they enter the Tent of Meeting, they shall wash with water so that they will not die; or when they approach the altar to serve, to make a fire offering rise up in smoke to the Lord, Shemot 30:20


+ 127 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


+ 110 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:22


+ 134 And you, take for yourself spices of the finest sort: of pure myrrh five hundred shekel weights; of fragrant cinnamon half of it two hundred and fifty shekel weights; of fragrant cane two hundred and fifty shekel weights, Shemot 30:23


+ 102 And of cassia five hundred shekel weights according to the holy shekel, and one hin of olive oil. Shemot 30:24


+ 116 You shall make this into an oil of holy annoinment, a perfumed compound according to the art of a perfumer; it shall be an oil of holy anointment. Shemot 30:25


+ 104 And you shall anoint with it the Tent of Meeting and the Ark of Testimony, Shemot 30:26


+ 100 The table and all its implements, the menorah and its implements, the altar of incense, Shemot 30:27


+ 89 The altar of the burnt offering and all its implements, the washstand and its base. Shemot 30:28


+ 96 And you shall sanctify them so that they become a holy of holies; whatever touches them shall become holy. Shemot 30:29


+ 101 And with it you shall anoint Aaron and his sons and sanctify them to serve Me as kohanim. Shemot 30:30


+ 124 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


+ 120 It shall not be poured upon human flesh, and according to its formula you shall not make anything like it. It is holy; it shall be holy to you. Shemot 30:32


+ 124 Any person who compounds anything like it or puts any of it on an alien shall be cut off from his people. Shemot 30:33


+ 147 And the Lord said to Moses: Take for yourself aromatics, namely balsam sap, onycha and galbanum, aromatics and pure frankincense; they shall be of equal weight. Shemot 30:34


+ 129 And you shall make it into incense, a compound according to the art of the perfumer, well blended, pure, holy. Shemot 30:35


+ 119 And you shall crush some of it very finely, and you shall set some of it before the testimony in the Tent of Meeting, where I will arrange meetings with you; it shall be to you a holy of holies. Shemot 30:36


+ 115 And the incense that you make, you shall not make for yourselves according to its formula; it shall be holy to you for the Lord. Shemot 30:37


+ 132 Any person who makes anything like it, to smell its fragrance, shall be cut off from his people. Shemot 30:38


+ 110 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 31:1


+ 100 See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, Shemot 31:2


+ 133 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


+ 93 To do master weaving, to work with gold, with silver, and with copper, Shemot 31:4


+ 102 With the craft of stones for setting and with the craft of wood, to do every manner of work. Shemot 31:5


+ 149 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


+ 112 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


+ 90 The table and its implements, the pure menorah and all its implements, the altar of incense, Shemot 31:8


+ 110 The altar for the burnt offering and all its implements, the washstand and its base, Shemot 31:9


+ 104 The meshwork garments, the holy garments for Aaron the kohen, the garments of his sons in which to serve as kohanim, Shemot 31:10


+ 106 The anointing oil and the incense for the Holy; in complete accordance with everything I have commanded you they shall do. Shemot 31:11


+ 115 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 31:12


+ 136 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


+ 117 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


+ 142 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


+ 86 Thus shall the children of Israel observe the Sabbath, to make the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. Shemot 31:16


+ 127 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


+ 133 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


+ 156 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


+ 109 Aaron said to them, Remove the golden earrings that are on the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters and bring them those earrings to me. Shemot 32:2


+ 128 And all the people stripped themselves of the golden earrings that were on their ears and brought them to Aaron. Shemot 32:3


+ 161 He took them from their hands, fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made it into a molten calf, upon which they said: These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you up from the land of Egypt! Shemot 32:4


+ 111 When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of it, and Aaron proclaimed and said: Tomorrow shall be a festival to the Lord. Shemot 32:5


+ 120 On the next day they arose early, offered up burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings, and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and they got up to make merry. Shemot 32:6


+ 136 And the Lord said to Moses: Go, descend, for your people that you have brought up from the land of Egypt have acted corruptly. Shemot 32:7


+ 156 They have quickly turned away from the path that I have commanded them; they have made themselves a molten calf! And they have prostrated themselves before it, slaughtered sacrifices to it, and said: These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you up from the land of Egypt. Shemot 32:8


+ 132 And the Lord said to Moses: I have seen this people and behold! they are a stiff necked people. Shemot 32:9


+ 109 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


+ 179 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


+ 133 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


+ 155 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


+ 99 The Lord then reconsidered the evil He had said He would do to His people. Shemot 32:14


+ 158 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


+ 99 Now the tablets were God's work, and the inscription was God's inscription, engraved on the tablets. Shemot 32:16


+ 114 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


+ 137 But Moses said: It is neither a voice shouting victory, nor a voice shouting defeat; a voice of blasphemy I hear. Shemot 32:18


+ 145 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


+ 158 Then he took the calf they had made, burned it in fire, ground it to fine powder, scattered it upon the surface of the water, and gave it to the children of Israel to drink. Shemot 32:20


+ 157 Moses said to Aaron: What did this people do to you that you brought such a grave sin upon them? Shemot 32:21


+ 107 Aaron replied: Let not my lord's anger grow hot! You know the people, that they are disposed toward evil. Shemot 32:22


+ 117 They said to me, Make us gods who will go before us, because this man Moses, who brought us up from the land of Egypt we do not know what has become of him. Shemot 32:23


+ 118 I said to them, Who has gold? So they took it the gold off and gave it to me; I threw it into the fire and out came this calf. Shemot 32:24


+ 132 And Moses saw the people, that they were exposed, for Aaron had exposed them to be disgraced before their adversaries. Shemot 32:25


+ 138 So Moses stood in the gate of the camp and said: Whoever is for the Lord, let him come to me! And all the sons of Levi gathered around him. Shemot 32:26


+ 138 He said to them: So said the Lord, the God of Israel: Let every man place his sword upon his thigh and pass back and forth from one gate to the other in the camp, and let every man kill his brother, every man his friend, every man his kinsman. Shemot 32:27


+ 123 The sons of Levi did according to Moses word; on that day some three thousand men fell from among the people. Shemot 32:28


+ 145 And Moses said: Initiate yourselves today for the Lord for each man with his son and with his brother so that He may bestow a blessing upon you this day. Shemot 32:29


+ 140 It came to pass on the next day that Moses said to the people: You have committed a grave sin. And now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I will obtain atonement for your sin. Shemot 32:30


+ 159 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


+ 121 And now, if You forgive their sin But if not, erase me now from Your book, which You have written. Shemot 32:32


+ 117 And the Lord said to Moses: Whoever has sinned against Me, him I will erase from My book! Shemot 32:33


+ 130 And now go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. Behold My angel will go before you. But on the day I make an accounting of sins upon them, I will bring their sin to account against them. Shemot 32:34


+ 93 Then the Lord struck the people with a plague, because they had made the calf that Aaron had made. Shemot 32:35


+ 152 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


+ 97 I will send an angel before you, and I will drive out the Canaanites, the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites. Shemot 33:2


+ 120 To a land flowing with milk and honey; because I will not go up in your midst since you are a stiff necked people, lest I destroy you on the way. Shemot 33:3


+ 84 When the people heard this bad news, they mourned, and no one put on his finery. Shemot 33:4


+ 178 And the Lord said to Moses: Say to the children of Israel: 'You are a stiff necked people; if I go up into your midst for one moment, I will destroy you; but now, leave off your finery, and I will know what to do to you. Shemot 33:5


+ 106 So the children of Israel divested themselves of their finery from Mount Horeb. Shemot 33:6


+ 135 And Moses took the tent and pitched it for himself outside the camp, distancing it from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting, and it would be that anyone seeking the Lord would go out to the tent of meeting, which was outside the camp. Shemot 33:7


+ 106 And it would be that when Moses would go out to the tent, all the people would rise and stand, each one at the entrance of his tent, and they would gaze after Moses until he went into the tent. Shemot 33:8


+ 106 And it would be that when Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the entrance of the tent, and He would speak with Moses. Shemot 33:9


+ 98 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


+ 157 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


+ 156 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


+ 132 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


+ 88 So He said, My Presence will go, and I will give you rest. Shemot 33:14


+ 96 And he said to Him, If Your Presence does not go with us, do not take us up from here. Shemot 33:15


+ 130 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


+ 128 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


+ 82 And he said: Show me, now, Your glory! Shemot 33:18


+ 111 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


+ 116 And He said, You will not be able to see My face, for man shall not see Me and live. Shemot 33:20


+ 98 And the Lord said: Behold, there is a place with Me, and you shall stand on the rock. Shemot 33:21


+ 123 And it shall be that when My glory passes by, I will place you into the cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Shemot 33:22


+ 122 Then I will remove My hand, and you will see My back but My face shall not be seen. Shemot 33:23


+ 147 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


+ 113 Be prepared for the morning, and in the morning you shall ascend Mount Sinai and stand before Me there on the top of the mountain. Shemot 34:2


+ 103 No one shall ascend with you, neither shall anyone be seen anywhere on the mountain, neither shall the sheep and the cattle graze facing that mountain. Shemot 34:3


+ 148 So Moses hewed two stone tablets like the first ones, and Moses arose early in the morning and ascended Mount Sinai as the Lord had commanded him, and he took two stone tablets in his hand. Shemot 34:4


+ 98 And the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and He called out in the name of the Lord. Shemot 34:5


+ 119 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed: Lord, Lord, benevolent God, Who is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness and truth, Shemot 34:6


+ 152 Preserving loving kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and rebellion and sin; yet He does not completely clear of sin He visits the iniquity of parents on children and children's children, to the third and fourth generations. Shemot 34:7


+ 110 And Moses hastened, bowed his head to the ground and prostrated himself, Shemot 34:8


+ 108 And said: If I have now found favor in Your eyes, O Lord, let the Lord go now in our midst even if they are a stiff necked people, and You shall forgive our iniquity and our sin and thus secure us as Your possession. Shemot 34:9


+ 163 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


+ 132 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


+ 107 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


+ 102 But you shall demolish their altars, shatter their monuments, and cut down their sacred trees. Shemot 34:13


+ 111 For you shall not prostrate yourself before another god, because the Lord, Whose Name is Jealous One, is a jealous God. Shemot 34:14


+ 121 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


+ 98 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


+ 91 You shall not make molten gods for yourself. Shemot 34:17


+ 157 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


+ 123 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


+ 108 And a firstborn donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; if you do not redeem it, you shall decapitate it; every firstborn of your sons you shall redeem, and they shall not appear before Me empty handed. Shemot 34:20


+ 106 Six days you may work, and on the seventh day you shall rest; in plowing and in harvest you shall rest. Shemot 34:21


+ 120 And you shall make for yourself a Festival of Weeks, the first of the wheat harvest, and the festival of the ingathering, at the turn of the year. Shemot 34:22


+ 105 Three times during the year shall all your male appear directly before the Master, the Lord, the God of Israel. Shemot 34:23


+ 121 When I drive out nations from before you and I widen your border, no one will covet your land when you go up, to appear before the Lord, your God, three times each year. Shemot 34:24


+ 123 You shall not slaughter or sprinkle the blood of My sacrifice with leaven, and the offering of the Passover feast shall not remain overnight until the morning. Shemot 34:25


+ 127 The choicest of the first of your soil you shall bring to the house of the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Shemot 34:26


+ 144 The Lord said to Moses: Inscribe these words for yourself, for according to these words I have formed a covenant with you and with Israel. Shemot 34:27


+ 139 He was there with the Lord for forty days and forty nights; he ate no bread and drank no water, and He inscribed upon the tablets the words of the Covenant, the Ten Commandments. Shemot 34:28


+ 141 And it came to pass when Moses descended from Mount Sinai, and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses' hand when he descended from the mountain and Moses did not know that the skin of his face had become radiant while He had spoken with him. Shemot 34:29


+ 142 That Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses and behold! the skin of his face had become radiant, and they were afraid to come near him. Shemot 34:30


+ 109 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


+ 125 Afterwards all the children of Israel would draw near, and he would command them everything that the Lord had spoken with him on Mount Sinai. Shemot 34:32


+ 117 When Moses had finished speaking with them, he placed a covering over his face. Shemot 34:33


+ 131 When Moses would come before the Lord to speak with Him, he would remove the covering until he left; then he would leave and speak to the children of Israel what he would be commanded. Shemot 34:34


+ 148 Then the children of Israel would see Moses face, that the skin of Moses face had become radiant, and then Moses would replace the covering over his face until he would come again to speak with Him. Shemot 34:35


+ 152 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


+ 127 Six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have sanctity, a day of complete rest to the Lord; whoever performs work thereon on this day shall be put to death. Shemot 35:2


+ 106 You shall not kindle fire in any of your dwelling places on the Sabbath day. Shemot 35:3


+ 114 And Moses spoke to the entire community of the children of Israel, saying: This is the word that the Lord has commanded to say: Shemot 35:4


+ 128 Take from yourselves an offering for the Lord; every generous hearted person shall bring it, namely the Lord's offering: gold, silver, and copper; Shemot 35:5


+ 73 And blue, purple, and crimson wool; and linen and goat hair; Shemot 35:6


+ 98 And ram skins dyed red, tachash skins, and acacia wood; Shemot 35:7


+ 95 And oil for lighting, and spices for the anointing oil and for the incense; Shemot 35:8


+ 94 And shoham stones and filling stones for the ephod and for the choshen. Shemot 35:9


+ 88 And every wise hearted person among you shall come and make everything that the Lord has commanded: Shemot 35:10

+ 139 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


+ 137 The men came with the women; every generous hearted person brought bracelets and earrings and rings and buckles, all kinds of golden objects, and every man who waved a waving of gold to the Lord. Shemot 35:22


+ 122 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


+ 174 And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every wise hearted man into whose heart the Lord had given wisdom, everyone whose heart lifted him up to approach the work to do it. Shemot 36:2


+ 129 So they took from before Moses all the offerings that the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the Holy, and they brought him more gifts every morning. Shemot 36:3


+ 102 Then all the wise men who were doing the work of the Holy came, each one from his work, which they had been doing. Shemot 36:4


+ 134 And they spoke to Moses, saying: The people are bringing very much, more than is enough for the labor of the articles which the Lord had commanded to do. Shemot 36:5


+ 120 So Moses commanded, and they announced in the camp, saying: Let no man or woman do any more work for the offering for the Holy. So the people stopped bringing. Shemot 36:6


+ 106 And the work was sufficient for them for all the work, to do it and to leave over. Shemot 36:7

+ 135 And they made two golden rings and placed them on the two shoulder straps of the ephod, from below, toward its front, adjacent to its seam, above the band of the ephod. Shemot 39:20


+ 109 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


+ 88 And he made the robe of the ephod, the work of a weaver, completely of blue wool. Shemot 39:22


+ 107 And the opening of the robe was turned inward like the opening of a coat of armor; its opening had a border around it so that it should not be torn. Shemot 39:23

+ 126 And they made the showplate, the holy crown, of pure gold, and they inscribed upon it an inscription like the engravings of a seal: "Holy to the Lord." Shemot 39:30


+ 118 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


+ 138 All the work of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting was completed; the children of Israel had done it; according to all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so they had done. Shemot 39:32


+ 127 Now they brought the Mishkan to Moses, the tent and all its furnishings its clasps, its planks, its bars, its pillars and its sockets, Shemot 39:33

+ 125 In accordance with all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel do all the work. Shemot 39:42


+ 89 There you shall place the Ark of the Testimony, and you shall spread the dividing curtain toward the ark. Shemot 40:3


+ 98 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


+ 115 He set upon it an arrangement of bread before the Lord as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:23


+ 109 He placed the washstand between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and there he put water for washing, Shemot 40:30


+ 108 And Moses, Aaron, and his sons would wash their hands and their feet from it. Shemot 40:31


+ 126 When they entered the Tent of Meeting and when they approached the altar they would wash as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:32


+ 134 He set up the courtyard all around the Mishkan and the altar, and he put up the screen at the entrance to the courtyard; and Moses completed the work. Shemot 40:33


+ 97 And the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the Mishkan. Shemot 40:34


+ 128 Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud rested upon it and the glory of the Lord filled the Mishkan. Shemot 40:35


+ 101 When the cloud rose up from over the Mishkan, the children of Israel set out in all their journeys. Shemot 40:36


+ 93 But if the cloud did not rise up, they did not set out until the day that it rose. Shemot 40:37


+ 172 For the cloud of the Lord was upon the Mishkan by day, and there was fire within it at night, before the eyes of the entire house of Israel in all their journeys. Shemot 40:38


+ 136 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


+ 176 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


+ 147 And what remains of the meal offering shall belong to Aaron and to his descendants; it is holy of holies from the fire offerings of the Lord. Vayikra 2:3


+ 154 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

+ 123 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 3:4


+ 138 And Aaron's descendants shall cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, apart from the burnt offering, which is on top of the wood that is on the fire; [it is] a fire offering with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 3:5


+ 128 And if his sacrifice for a peace offering to the Lord is from the flock, whether male or female, unblemished he shall bring it. Vayikra 3:6


+ 121 If he brings a sheep as his sacrifice, then he shall bring it before the Lord. Vayikra 3:7

+ 115 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


+ 116 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


+ 115 And if his sacrifice is a goat, he shall bring it before the Lord, Vayikra 3:12


+ 136 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


+ 139 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


+ 109 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


+ 226 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


+ 109 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


+ 125 If the anointed kohen sins, bringing guilt to the people, then he shall bring for his sin which he has committed, an unblemished young bull as a sin offering to the Lord. Vayikra 4:3


+ 147 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


+ 110 If his sin that he has committed is made known to him, then he shall bring his offering: an unblemished male goat. Vayikra 4:23


+ 133 And the kohen shall take some of its blood with his finger, and place it on the horns of the altar used for burnt offerings. And then he shall pour all of its remaining blood at the base of the altar. Vayikra 4:30


+ 155 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


+ 130 If he brings a sheep for his sin offering, he shall bring an unblemished female. Vayikra 4:32


+ 116 He shall lean his hand forcefully upon the head of the sin offering and slaughter it as a sin offering in the place where he slaughters the burnt offering. Vayikra 4:33


+ 162 And the kohen shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger and place it on the horns of the altar used for burnt offerings. And then he shall pour all of its blood onto the base of the altar. Vayikra 4:34


+ 140 And he shall remove all its fat, just as the sheep's fat is removed from the peace offering. The kohen shall then cause them to go up in smoke on the altar, upon the fires for the Lord. Thus the kohen shall make atonement for him, for his sin which he committed, and he will be forgiven. Vayikra 4:35


+ 132 Or if he touches the uncleanness of a human, with any uncleanness through which he may become defiled, and it is hidden from him and later he knows, he has incurred guilt; Vayikra 5:3


+ 123 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


+ 126 And it shall be, when he has sinned and is guilty, that he shall return the article which he had robbed, or the funds which he had withheld, or the item which had been deposited with him, or the article which he had found; Vayikra 5:23


+ 143 And the kohen shall don his linen tunic, and he shall don his linen trousers on his flesh. And he shall lift out the ashes into which the fire has consumed the burnt offering upon the altar, and put them down next to the altar. Vayikra 6:3


+ 139 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


+ 122 But any sin offering some of whose blood was brought into the Tent of Meeting to make atonement in the Holy, shall not be eaten; it shall be burned in fire. Vayikra 6:23


+ 103 And all of its fat he shall offer from it: the tail and the fat covering the innards, Vayikra 7:3


+ 122 Along with loaves of leavened bread, he shall bring his offering along with his thanksgiving peace offering. Vayikra 7:13


+ 121 Speak to the Children of Israel, saying: You shall not eat any fat of an ox, sheep, or goat. Vayikra 7:23


+ 104 His own hands shall bring the fire offerings of the Lord. The fat, on the breast, he shall bring it, the breast, to wave it as a waving before the Lord. Vayikra 7:30


+ 110 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


+ 115 And you shall give the right thigh as an elevation offering to the kohen, from your peace offering. Vayikra 7:32


+ 103 Anyone of the sons of Aaron who offers up the blood of the peace offering and the fat he shall have the right thigh as a portion. Vayikra 7:33


+ 122 For I have taken the breast of the waving and the thigh of the elevation from the children of Israel, from their peace offerings, and I have given them to Aaron the kohen and to his sons as an eternal statute, from the children of Israel. Vayikra 7:34


+ 128 This is the grant for Aaron's anointment and his sons' anointment, from the fire offerings of the Lord, on the day that He brought them near, to be kohanim for the Lord. Vayikra 7:35


+ 123 Which the Lord commanded to give them on the day that He anointed them, from the children of Israel. This is an eternal statute for their generations. Vayikra 7:36


+ 106 This is the law for the burnt offering, for the meal offering, and for the sin offering, and for the guilt offering, and for the investitures, and for the peace offering, Vayikra 7:37


+ 136 Which the Lord commanded Moses on Mount Sinai, on the day He commanded the children of Israel to offer up their sacrifices to the Lord in the Sinai Desert. Vayikra 7:38


+ 103 And assemble the entire community at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 8:3


+ 136 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


+ 133 And he slaughtered it, and Moses took some of its blood, and placed it on the cartilage of Aaron's right ear, on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot. Vayikra 8:23


+ 124 And Moses took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood that was on the altar, and he sprinkled it on Aaron and on his garments, and on his sons, and on his sons' garments, and he sanctified Aaron, his garments, his sons and his sons' garments with him. Vayikra 8:30


+ 133 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


+ 139 And whatever is left over from the flesh and the bread, you shall burn in fire. Vayikra 8:32


+ 115 And you shall not leave the entrance of the Tent of Meeting for seven days, until the day of the completion of your investiture days, he will inaugurate you for seven days. Vayikra 8:33


+ 99 As he did on this day, so the Lord has commanded to do, to effect atonement for you. Vayikra 8:34


+ 123 And you shall stay day and night for seven days at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. You shall observe the Lord's command, so that you will not die, for thus I was commanded. Vayikra 8:35


+ 121 And Aaron and his sons did all the things that the Lord commanded through Moses. Vayikra 8:36


+ 130 And to the children of Israel, you shall speak, saying, Take a he goat as a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both in their first year and both unblemished, as a burnt offering, Vayikra 9:3


+ 115 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


+ 122 And Moses and Aaron went into the Tent of Meeting. Then they came out and blessed the people, and the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. Vayikra 9:23


+ 139 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


+ 122 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


+ 130 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


+ 109 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


+ 106 But any other flying insect that has four legs, is an abomination for you. Vayikra 11:23


+ 89 The hedgehog, the chameleon, the lizard, the snail, and the mole. Vayikra 11:30


+ 118 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


+ 154 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


+ 128 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


+ 133 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


+ 122 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


+ 120 But a spring or a cistern, a gathering of water remains clean. However, one who touches their carcass shall become unclean. Vayikra 11:36


+ 112 And if of their carcass falls upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it remains clean. Vayikra 11:37


+ 107 But if water is put upon seeds, and any of their carcass falls on them, they are unclean for you. Vayikra 11:38


+ 118 If an animal that you normally eat, dies, one who touches its carcass shall be unclean until evening. Vayikra 11:39


+ 114 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


+ 99 And on the eighth day, the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. Vayikra 12:3


+ 119 And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: Vayikra 13:1


+ 126 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


+ 122 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


+ 137 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


+ 122 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


+ 115 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


+ 110 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


+ 131 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


+ 103 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


+ 114 If a man has a lesion of tzara'ath, he shall be brought to the kohen. Vayikra 13:9


+ 123 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


+ 106 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


+ 133 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


+ 114 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


+ 102 But on the day that live flesh appears in it, he shall become unclean. Vayikra 13:14


+ 115 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


+ 118 But, if the healthy, live flesh once again turns white, he shall come to the kohen. Vayikra 13:16


+ 108 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


+ 108 If a person's flesh has an inflammation on its skin, and it heals, Vayikra 13:18


+ 112 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


+ 130 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


+ 124 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


+ 101 And if it spreads on the skin, the kohen shall pronounce him unclean. It is a lesion. Vayikra 13:22


+ 121 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


+ 112 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


+ 120 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


+ 126 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


+ 112 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


+ 119 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


+ 87 If a man or a woman has a lesion on the head or on the beard area, Vayikra 13:29


+ 117 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


+ 126 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


+ 106 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


+ 115 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


+ 123 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


+ 109 But if the nethek spreads on the skin, after he has been declared clean, Vayikra 13:35


+ 124 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


+ 122 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


+ 109 If a man or a woman has spots on the skin of their flesh, white spots, Vayikra 13:38


+ 91 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


+ 81 If a man loses the hair on the back of his head, he is bald. He is clean. 13:40


+ 105 And if he loses his hair on the side toward his face, he is bald at the front. He is clean. Vayikra 13:41


+ 122 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


+ 133 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


+ 105 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


+ 122 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


+ 117 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


+ 108 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


+ 114 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


+ 120 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


+ 101 The kohen shall look at the lesion, and he shall quarantine the article with the lesion for seven days. Vayikra 13:50


+ 121 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


+ 130 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


+ 114 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


+ 92 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


+ 126 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


+ 115 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


+ 126 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


+ 139 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


+ 119 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


+ 109 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


+ 115 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


+ 114 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


+ 119 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


+ 138 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


+ 127 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


+ 109 And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, Vayikra 14:33


+ 110 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


+ 140 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


+ 116 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


+ 127 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


+ 108 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


+ 101 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


+ 131 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


+ 144 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


+ 120 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


+ 120 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


+ 100 And if he is on the bedding or on the object, upon which she is sitting, when he touches it, he becomes unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:23


+ 101 And the kohen shall make one into a sin offering and one into a burnt offering, and the kohen shall effect atonement for her, before the Lord, from the uncleanness of her discharge. Vayikra 15:30


+ 123 And you shall separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness, so that they will not die on account of their uncleanness, if they defile My Sanctuary which is in their midst. Vayikra 15:31


+ 128 This is the law for one who has a discharge, and one from whom semen issues, through which he becomes unclean, Vayikra 15:32


+ 114 And for a woman who has her menstrual flow, and for one who has a discharge, whether male or female, and a man who cohabits with an unclean woman. Vayikra 15:33


+ 104 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


+ 117 And he shall place the incense upon the fire, before the Lord, so that the cloud of the incense shall envelope the ark cover that is over the tablets of Testimony, so that he shall not die. Vayikra 16:13


+ 122 And Aaron shall enter the Tent of Meeting and remove the linen garments that he had worn when he came into the Holy, and there, he shall store them away. Vayikra 16:23


+ 106 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


+ 109 It is a Sabbath of rest for you, and you shall afflict yourselves. It is an eternal statute. Vayikra 16:31


+ 111 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


+ 112 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


+ 142 All this shall be as an eternal statute for you, to effect atonement upon the children of Israel, for all their sins, once each year. And he did as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 16:34


+ 132 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


+ 134 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


+ 136 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


+ 117 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother's sister, for she is the close relative of your mother. Vayikra 18:13


+ 121 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


+ 134 And you shall observe My charge, not to commit any of the abominable practices that were done before you, and you shall not become defiled by them. I am the Lord your God. Vayikra 18:30


+ 127 Every man shall fear his mother and his father, and you shall observe My Sabbaths. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 19:3


+ 129 You shall not oppress your fellow. You shall not rob. The hired worker's wage shall not remain with you overnight until morning. Vayikra 19:13


+ 120 When you come to the Land and you plant any food tree, you shall surely block its fruit from use; it shall be blocked from you from use for three years, not to be eaten. Vayikra 19:23


+ 124 You shall observe My Sabbaths and revere My Sanctuary. I am the Lord. Vayikra 19:30


+ 126 You shall not turn to the sorcery of Ov or Yid'oni; you shall not seek these and thereby defile yourselves through them. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 19:31


+ 105 You shall rise before a venerable person and you shall respect the elderly, and you shall fear your God. I am the Lord. Vayikra 19:32


+ 110 When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not taunt him. Vayikra 19:33


+ 153 The stranger who sojourns with you shall be as a native from among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 19:34


+ 135 You shall not commit a perversion of justice with measures, weights, or liquid measures. Vayikra 19:35


+ 127 You shall have true scales, true weights, a true ephah, and a true hin. I am the Lord, your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt. Vayikra 19:36


+ 121 You shall observe all My statutes and all My ordinances, and fulfill them. I am the Lord. Vayikra 19:37


+ 130 And I will set My attention upon that man, and I will cut him off from amidst his people, because he gave of his offspring to Molech in order to defile My holy ones and to profane My holy Name. Vayikra 20:3


+ 111 And a man who lies with a male as one would with a woman both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon themselves. Vayikra 20:13


+ 134 You shall not follow the practices of the nation that I am sending away from before you, for they committed all these sins, and I was disgusted with them. Vayikra 20:23


+ 122 And for his virgin sister who is close to him, who was not yet with a man for her, he shall defile himself. Vayikra 21:3


+ 97 He shall marry a woman in her virgin state. Vayikra 21:13


+ 130 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


+ 139 Say to them: Throughout your generations, any man among any of your offspring who, while his defilement is still upon him, comes near to the holy sacrifices that the children of Israel consecrate to the Lord that soul shall be cut off from before me. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:3


+ 127 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


+ 154 As for an ox or sheep that has mismatching limbs or uncloven hooves you may make it into a donation, but as a vow, it will not be accepted. Vayikra 22:23


+ 103 It shall be eaten on that day; do not leave it over until morning. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:30


+ 99 You shall keep My commandments and perform them. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:31


+ 131 You shall not desecrate My Holy Name. I shall be sanctified amidst the children of Israel. I am the Lord Who sanctifies you, Vayikra 22:32


+ 105 Who took you out of the land of Egypt, to be a God to you. I am the Lord. Vayikra 22:33


+ 110 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 23:1


+ 145 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: The Lord's appointed holy days that you shall designate as holy occasions. These are My appointed holy days: Vayikra 23:2


+ 137 For six days, work may be performed, but on the seventh day, it is a complete rest day, a holy occasion; you shall not perform any work. It is a Sabbath to the Lord in all your dwelling places. Vayikra 23:3


+ 134 These are the Lord's appointed holy days, holy occasions, which you shall designate in their appointed time: Vayikra 23:4


+ 118 In the first month, on the fourteenth of the month, in the afternoon, you shall sacrifice the Passover offering to the Lord. Vayikra 23:5


+ 119 And on the fifteenth day of that month is the Festival of Unleavened Cakes to the Lord; you shall eat unleavened cakes for a seven day period. Vayikra 23:6


+ 98 On the first day, there shall be a holy occasion for you; you shall not perform any work of labor. Vayikra 23:7


+ 125 And you shall bring a fire offering to the Lord for a seven day period. On the seventh day, there shall be a holy occasion; you shall not perform any work of labor. Vayikra 23:8


+ 95 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 23:9


+ 136 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


+ 104 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


+ 189 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


+ 126 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


+ 123 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


+ 114 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


+ 118 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


+ 133 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


+ 143 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


+ 119 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


+ 115 And the kohen shall wave them in conjunction with the first offering bread as a waving before the Lord, along with the two lambs. They shall be holy to the Lord, and belong to the kohen. Vayikra 23:20


+ 110 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


+ 132 When you reap the harvest of your Land, you shall not completely remove the corner of your field during your harvesting, and you shall not gather up the gleanings of your harvest. Rather, you shall leave these for the poor person and for the stranger. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 23:22


+ 104 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 23:23


+ 156 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: In the seventh month, on the first of the month, it shall be a Sabbath for you, a remembrance of Israel through the shofar blast a holy occasion. Vayikra 23:24


+ 101 You shall not perform any work of labor, and you shall offer up a fire offering to the Lord. Vayikra 23:25


+ 108 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 23:26


+ 137 But on the tenth of this seventh month, it is a day of atonement, it shall be a holy occasion for you; you shall afflict yourselves, and you shall offer up a fire offering to the Lord. Vayikra 23:27


+ 103 You shall not perform any work on that very day, for it is a day of atonement, for you to gain atonement before the Lord, your God. Vayikra 23:28


+ 104 For any person who will not be afflicted on that very day, shall be cut off from its people. Vayikra 23:29


+ 99 And any person who performs any work on that very day I will destroy that person from amidst its people. Vayikra 23:30


+ 102 You shall not perform any work. This is an eternal statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. Vayikra 23:31


+ 119 It is a complete day of rest for you, and you shall afflict yourselves. On the ninth of the month in the evening, from evening to evening, you shall observe your rest day. Vayikra 23:32


+ 110 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 23:33


+ 133 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: On the fifteenth day of this seventh month, is the Festival of Succoth, a seven day period to the Lord. Vayikra 23:34


+ 106 On the first day, it is a holy occasion; you shall not perform any work of labor. Vayikra 23:35


+ 118 For a seven day period, you shall bring a fire offering to the Lord. On the eighth day, it shall be a holy occasion for you, and you shall bring a fire offering to the Lord. It is a day of detention. You shall not perform any work of labor. Vayikra 23:36


+ 123 These are God's appointed holy days that you shall designate them as holy occasions, on which to offer up a fire offering to the Lord burnt offering and meal offering, sacrifice and libations, the requirement of each day on its day; Vayikra 23:37


+ 131 Apart from the Lord's Sabbaths, and apart from your gifts, and apart from all your vows, and apart from all your donations that you give to the Lord. Vayikra 23:38


+ 132 But on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the produce of the land, you shall celebrate the festival of the Lord for a seven day period; the first day shall be a rest day, and the eighth day shall be a rest day. Vayikra 23:39


+ 131 And you shall take for yourselves on the first day, the fruit of the hadar tree, date palm fronds, a branch of a braided tree, and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for a seven day period. Vayikra 23:40


+ 109 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


+ 152 For a seven day period you shall live in booths. Every resident among the Israelites shall live in booths, Vayikra 23:42


+ 130 In order that your ensuing generations should know that I had the children of Israel live in booths when I took them out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 23:43


+ 143 And Moses told the children of Israel these laws of the Lord's appointed holy days. Vayikra 23:44


+ 125 Outside the dividing curtain of the testimony in the Tent of Meeting, Aaron shall set it up before the Lord from evening to morning continually. This shall be an eternal statute for your generations. Vayikra 24:3


+ 114 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 24:13


+ 127 And Moses told all this to the children of Israel. So they took the blasphemer outside the camp and stoned him, and the children of Israel did just as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 24:23


+ 135 You may sow your field for six years, and for six years you may prune your vineyard, and gather in its produce, Vayikra 25:3


+ 122 During this Jubilee year, you shall return, each man to his property. Vayikra 25:13


+ 127 The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land belongs to Me, for you are strangers and temporary residents with Me. Vayikra 25:23


+ 123 But if it is not redeemed by the end of a complete year, then that house which is in the city that has a wall, shall remain permanently the property of the one who purchased it throughout his generations. It will not leave his possession in the Jubilee. Vayikra 25:30


+ 139 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


+ 127 And, regarding the cities of the Levites, the houses of their inherited cities shall forever have a right of redemption for the Levites. Vayikra 25:32


+ 136 And if one purchases from the Levites, whether a house or an inherited city, will leave the possession of the purchaser in the Jubilee, because the houses of the cities of the Levites, are their inherited property amidst the children of Israel. Vayikra 25:33


+ 126 And a field in the open areas of their cities cannot be sold, because it is their eternal inheritance. Vayikra 25:34


+ 117 If your brother becomes destitute and his hand falters beside you, you shall support him whether a convert or a resident, so that he can live with you. Vayikra 25:35


+ 104 You shall not take from him interest or increase, and you shall fear your God, and let your brother live with you. Vayikra 25:36


+ 111 You shall not give him your money with interest, nor shall you give your food with increase. Vayikra 25:37


+ 95 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, to be a God to you. Vayikra 25:38


+ 95 And if your brother becomes destitute with you, and is sold to you, do not work him with slave labor. Vayikra 25:39


+ 92 You shall not work him with rigor, and you shall fear your God. Vayikra 25:43


+ 106 He shall be with him as an employee hired year by year; he shall not enslave him with rigor in your sight. Vayikra 25:53


+ 107 If you follow My statutes and observe My commandments and perform them, Vayikra 26:3


+ 106 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


+ 99 And if, through these, you will still not be chastised to return to Me, and if you continue to treat Me happenstance, Vayikra 26:23


+ 119 I will demolish your edifices and cut down your sun idols; I will make your corpses fall upon the corpses of your idols, and My Spirit will reject you. Vayikra 26:30


+ 114 I will lay your cities waste and make your holy places desolate, and I will not partake of your pleasant fragrances. Vayikra 26:31


+ 92 I will make the Land desolate, so that it will become desolate also of your enemies who live in it. Vayikra 26:32


+ 118 And I will scatter you among the nations, and I will unsheathe the sword after you. Your land will be desolate, and your cities will be laid waste. Vayikra 26:33


+ 140 Then, the land will be appeased regarding its sabbaticals. During all the days that it remains desolate while you are in the land of your enemies, the Land will rest and thus appease its sabbaticals. Vayikra 26:34


+ 115 It will rest during all the days that it remains desolate, whatever it had not rested on your sabbaticals, when you lived upon it. Vayikra 26:35


+ 133 And those of you who survive I will bring fear in their hearts in the lands of their enemies, and the sound of a rustling leaf will pursue them; they will flee as one flees the sword, and they will fall, but there will be no pursuer. Vayikra 26:36


+ 132 Each man will stumble over his brother, fleeing as if from the sword, but without a pursuer. You will not be able to stand up against your enemies. Vayikra 26:37


+ 95 You will become lost among the nations, and the land of your enemies will consume you. Vayikra 26:38


+ 118 And because of their iniquity, those of you who survive will rot away in the lands of your enemies; moreover, they will rot away because the iniquities of their fathers are still within them. Vayikra 26:39


+ 120 For the Land will be bereft of them, appeasing its sabbaticals when it had been desolate of them, and they will gain appeasement for their iniquity. This was all in retribution for their having despised My ordinances and in retribution for their having rejected My statutes. Vayikra 26:43


+ 123 The fixed value of a male shall be as follows: From twenty years old until sixty years old, the value is fifty silver shekels, according to the holy shekel; Vayikra 27:3


+ 73 But if he redeems it, he shall add its fifth to its value. Vayikra 27:13


+ 97 The kohen shall calculate for him the amount of the valuation until the Jubilee year, and he shall give the valuation on that day, holy to the Lord. Vayikra 27:23


+ 97 Any tithe of the Land, whether it be from the seed of the land or the fruit of the tree it is the Lord's. It is holy to the Lord. Vayikra 27:30


+ 75 And if a man redeems some of his tithe, he shall add its fifth to it. Vayikra 27:31


+ 90 Any tithe of cattle or flock of all that pass under the rod, the tenth shall be holy to the Lord. Vayikra 27:32


+ 117 He shall not inspect a tithed animal for a good or a bad one, nor shall he offer a substitute for it. And if he does replace it, then both that one and its replacement are holy; it cannot be redeemed. Vayikra 27:33


+ 136 These are the commandments that the Lord commanded Moses to tell the children of Israel on Mount Sinai. Vayikra 27:34


+ 122 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


+ 88 For Asher, Pag'iel the son of 'Ochran. Bamidbar 1:13


+ 108 Those counted from the tribe of Simeon: fifty nine thousand, three hundred. Bamidbar 1:23

+ 100 Those counted from the tribe of Dan: sixty two thousand, seven hundred. Bamidbar 1:39


+ 103 Those counted from the tribe of Naphtali: fifty three thousand, four hundred. Bamidbar 1:43


+ 109 The Levites shall encamp around the Mishkan of the Testimony, so that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel and the Levites shall keep the charge of the Mishkan of the Testimony. Bamidbar 1:53


+ 109 Those camping in front, to the east, were the legions under the division of the camp of Judah. The prince of the children of Judah was Nahshon the son of Amminadab. Bamidbar 2:3


+ 110 His legion numbered fifty nine thousand, three hundred. Bamidbar 2:13


+ 94 His legion numbered thirty five thousand, four hundred. Bamidbar 2:23


+ 94 His legion numbered fifty three thousand, four hundred. Bamidbar 2:30


+ 100 The total sum for the legions under the division of the camp of Dan was one hundred and fifty seven thousand, six hundred; they shall be the last to set out. Bamidbar 2:31


+ 117 These are the numbers of the Israelites according to their fathers' houses. The total number of legions of the camps was six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty. Bamidbar 2:32


+ 125 However, the Levites were not counted with the rest of the Israelites, as the Lord commanded Moses. Bamidbar 2:33


+ 118 The Israelites did all that the Lord had commanded Moses; they encamped by their divisions, and so did they journey each man with his family, according to his father's house. Bamidbar 2:34


+ 130 These are the descendants of Moses and Aaron on the day that the Lord spoke to Moses at Mount Sinai. Bamidbar 3:1


+ 113 These are the names of the sons of Aaron: Nadab the firstborn Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. Bamidbar 3:2


+ 101 These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the anointed kohanim, whom he consecrated to serve as kohanim. Bamidbar 3:3


+ 108 Nadab and Abihu died before the Lord when they brought alien fire before the Lord in the Sinai desert, and they had no children. Eleazar and Ithamar, however, served as kohanim in the presence of Aaron, their father. Bamidbar 3:4


+ 105 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 3:5


+ 90 Bring forth the tribe of Levi and present them before Aaron the kohen, that they may serve him. Bamidbar 3:6


+ 86 They shall keep his charge and the charge of the entire community before the Tent of Meeting, to perform the service of the Mishkan. Bamidbar 3:7


+ 94 They shall take charge of all the vessels of the Tent of Meeting and the charge of the children of Israel, to perform the service of the Mishkan. Bamidbar 3:8


+ 107 You shall give over the Levites to Aaron and his sons; they shall be wholly given over to him from the children of Israel. Bamidbar 3:9


+ 106 You shall appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall keep their kehunah; any outsider non kohen who approaches shall be put to death. Bamidbar 3:10


+ 94 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying. Bamidbar 3:11


+ 104 As for Me I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel in place of all firstborns among the children of Israel who have opened the womb, and the Levites shall be Mine. Bamidbar 3:12


+ 109 For all the firstborns are Mine; since the day I smote all the firstborns in the land of Egypt, I sanctified for Myself all the firstborns of Israel, both man and beast they shall become Mine, I am the Lord. Bamidbar 3:13


+ 86 The Lord spoke to Moses in the Sinai desert, saying: Bamidbar 3:14


+ 105 Count the children of Levi according to their fathers' house according to their families. Count all males from the age of one month and upward. Bamidbar 3:15


+ 106 So Moses counted them according to God's word, just as he was commanded. Bamidbar 3:16


+ 98 These were the names of Levi's sons: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. Bamidbar 3:17


+ 99 The names of the sons of Gershon according to their families were Libni and Shim'ei. Bamidbar 3:18


+ 104 And the sons of Kohath according to their families were Amram, Itzhar, Hebron, and Uziel. Bamidbar 3:19


+ 105 And the sons of Merari according to their families were Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of Levi according to their fathers' houses. Bamidbar 3:20


+ 100 For Gershon, the Libnite family and the Shim'eite family; these are the Gershonite families. Bamidbar 3:21


+ 104 Their sum was made according to the number of males from the age of one month and upward; the tally amounted to seven thousand, five hundred. Bamidbar 3:22


+ 90 The Gershonite families shall camp behind the Mishkan, to the west. Bamidbar 3:23


+ 93 The prince of the father's house of the Gershonites is Eliasaph the son of Lael. Bamidbar 3:24


+ 93 The charge of the sons of Gershon in the Tent of Meeting included the Mishkan, the Tent, its cover, and the screen for the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 3:25


+ 107 The hangings of the courtyard, the screen at the entrance to the courtyard, which is around the Mishkan and the altar, its ropes, as well as all the work involved. Bamidbar 3:26


+ 107 For Kohath, the Amramite family, the Izharite family, the Hebronite family, and the Uzielite family; these are the families of Kohath. Bamidbar 3:28


+ 114 The number of all males from the age of one month and upward amounted to eight thousand six hundred, the keepers of the charge of the holy. Bamidbar 3:29


+ 98 The families of the sons of Kohath shall camp to the south side of the Mishkan. Bamidbar 3:29


+ 94 The prince of the father's house of the Kohathite families is Elizaphan the son of Uziel. Bamidbar 3:30


+ 115 Their charge included the ark, the table, the menorah, the altars, and the holy utensils with which they would minister, and the screen and all the work involved. Bamidbar 3:31

+ 100 The prince of the father's house of the Merarite families is Zuriel the son of Abihail; they shall camp on the north side of the Mishkan. Bamidbar 3:35


+ 113 The appointment of the charge of the sons of Merari included the planks of the Mishkan, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets, all its utensils, and all the work involved. Bamidbar 3:36


+ 104 Also the pillars of the surrounding courtyard, their sockets, their stakes, and their ropes. Bamidbar 3:37


+ 96 Camping in front of the Mishkan, in front of the Tent of Meeting to the east were Moses, Aaron and his sons, the keepers of the charge of the Sanctuary as a trust for the children of Israel; any outsider who approaches shall be put to death. Bamidbar 3:38


+ 111 The sum of the male Levites according to their families, from the age of one month and upward, counted by Moses and Aaron according to the word of the Lord, was twenty two thousand. Bamidbar 3:39


+ 125 The Lord said to Moses: Count every firstborn male aged one month and upward of the children of Israel, and take the number of their names. Bamidbar 3:40


+ 100 And you shall take the Levites for Me I am the Lord instead of all firstborns among the children of Israel. And take the Levites' animals instead of all the firstborn animals of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 3:41


+ 102 So Moses counted every firstborn of Israel, as the Lord had commanded him. Bamidbar 3:42


+ 111 The firstborn males aged one month and upward, according to the number of names, was twenty two thousand, two hundred and seventy three. Bamidbar 3:43


+ 98 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 3:44


+ 112 Take the Levites instead of all the firstborns among the children of Israel and the Levites' animals instead of their animals, and the Levites shall be Mine I am the Lord. Bamidbar 3:45


+ 118 As for the two hundred and seventy three of the children of Israel who required redemption, who are in excess of the Levites, Bamidbar 3:46


+ 90 You shall take five shekels per head, according to the holy shekel, by which the shekel is twenty gerahs. Bamidbar 3:47


+ 97 You shall give the money to Aaron and his sons, in redemption for the firstborns who are in excess of them. Bamidbar 3:48


+ 101 So Moses took the redemption money for those in excess of those redeemed by the Levites. Bamidbar 3:49


+ 109 He took the money from the firstborn of the children of Israel; one thousand, three hundred and sixty five of the holy shekels. Bamidbar 3:50


+ 103 Then Moses gave the money of those redeemed to Aaron and his sons, in accordance with the word of the Lord, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 3:51


+ 96 From the age of thirty until the age of fifty, all who enter the service, to do work in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:3


+ 95 They shall remove the ashes from the altar and spread a cloth of purple wool over it. Bamidbar 4:13

+ 100 From the age of thirty years and upward until the age of fifty years, you shall count them, all who come to the legion, to perform service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:30


+ 103 This is the charge of their burden for all their service in the Tent of Meeting: the planks of the Mishkan, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets. Bamidbar 4:31


+ 117 The pillars of the surrounding courtyard, their sockets, their pegs, and their ropes, all their implements for all the work involved. You shall designate by name the implements charged to them for their burden. Bamidbar 4:32


+ 94 This is the service of the families of the sons of Merari for all their service in the Tent of Meeting, which was under the supervision of Ithamar the son of Aaron the kohen. Bamidbar 4:33


+ 119 Moses, Aaron, and the chieftains of the congregation counted the sons of the Kohathites, according to their families and their fathers' houses. Bamidbar 4:34


+ 100 From the age of thirty years and upward, until the age of fifty years, all who come to the legion, for service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:35


+ 91 Their tally, according to their families: two thousand, seven hundred and fifty. Bamidbar 4:36


+ 108 These are the numbers of the Kohathite families, all who served in the Tent of Meeting, who were counted by Moses and Aaron as directed by the Lord to Moses. Bamidbar 4:37


+ 86 The tally of the sons of Gershon, according to their families and their fathers' houses. Bamidbar 4:38


+ 83 From the age of thirty years and upward, until the age of fifty years, all who come to the legion, forservice in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:39


+ 93 Their total, according to their families and their fathers' houses: two thousand, six hundred and thirty. Bamidbar 4:30


+ 115 These are the numbers of the families of the sons of Gershon, all who served in the Tent of Meeting, whom Moses and Aaron counted as directed by the Lord. Bamidbar 4:31


+ 104 From the age of thirty years and upward, until the age of fifty years, all who come to the legion, for work in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:43


+ 116 Both male and female you shall banish; you shall send them outside the camp, and they not defile their camps, in which I dwell among them. Bamidbar 5:3


+ 188 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


+ 91 Then the kohen shall write these curses on a scroll and erase it in the bitter water. Bamidbar 5:23


+ 88 Or if a spirit of jealousy comes over a man, and he is jealous of his wife, and he presents the woman before the Lord, and the kohen shall do to her all of this law, Bamidbar 5:30


+ 91 The man shall be absolved of iniquity, and the woman shall bear her iniquity. Bamidbar 5:31


+ 104 He shall abstain from new wine and aged wine; he shall not drink even vinegar made from new wine or aged wine, nor shall he drink anything in which grapes have been steeped, and he shall eat neither fresh grapes nor dried ones. Bamidbar 6:3


+ 101 This is the law of the nazirite: On the day his period of naziriteship is completed, he shall present himself at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 6:13


+ 91 Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying: This is how you shall bless the children of Israel, saying to them: Bamidbar 6:23


+ 107 They brought their offering before the Lord: six covered wagons and twelve oxen, a wagon for each two chieftains, and an ox for each one; they presented them in front of the Mishkan. Bamidbar 7:3


+ 107 And his offering was one silver bowl weighing one hundred and thirty shekels, one silver sprinkling basin weighing seventy shekels according to the holy shekel, both filled with fine flour mixed with olive oil for a meal offering. Bamidbar 7:13

+ 106 Aaron did so; he lit the lamps toward the face of the menorah, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 8:3


+ 82 You shall present the Levites before Aaron and his sons, and lift them as a waving before the Lord. Bamidbar 8:13


+ 87 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 8:23


+ 117 On the afternoon of the fourteenth of this month, you shall make it in its appointed time; in accordance with all its statutes and all its ordinances you shall make it. Bamidbar 9:3


+ 124 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


+ 91 At the Lord's bidding they would encamp, and at the Lord's bidding they would travel; they kept the charge of the Lord by the word of the Lord through Moses. Bamidbar 9:23


+ 93 When they blow on them, the entire congregation shall assemble to you, at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 10:3


+ 81 This was the first journey at God's bidding through Moses. Bamidbar 10:13


+ 88 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Menasseh was Gamliel the son of Pedahzur. Bamidbar 10:23


+ 90 He said to him, I won't go, for I will go to my land and my birthplace. Bamidbar 10:30


+ 108 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


+ 82 And if you go with us, then we will bestow on you the good which God grants us. Bamidbar 10:32


+ 90 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


+ 84 The cloud of the Lord was above them by day, when they traveled from the camp. Bamidbar 10:34


+ 115 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


+ 86 And when it came to rest he would say, Repose O Lord, among the myriads of thousands of Israel. Bamidbar 10:36


+ 93 He named that place Tab'erah, for the fire of the Lord had burned among them there. Bamidbar 11:3


+ 88 Alone I cannot carry this entire people for it is too hard for me. Bamidbar 11:13


+ 111 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


+ 100 Then Moses entered the camp; he and the elders of Israel. Bamidbar 11:30


+ 122 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


+ 101 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


+ 111 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


+ 103 He named that place Kivroth Hata'avah Graves of Craving, for there they buried the people who craved. Bamidbar 11:34


+ 99 From Kivroth Hata'avah the people traveled to Hazeroth, and they stayed in Hazeroth. Bamidbar 11:35


+ 88 Now this man Moses was exceedingly humble, more so than any person on the face of the earth. Bamidbar 12:3


+ 91 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 13:1


+ 104 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


+ 111 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


+ 83 These are their names: For the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zakkur. Bamidbar 13:4


+ 88 For the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori. Bamidbar 13:5


+ 80 For the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jepphunneh. Bamidbar 13:6


+ 86 For the tribe of Issachar, Yigal the son of Joseph. Bamidbar 13:7


+ 89 For the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea the son of Nun. Bamidbar 13:8


+ 90 For the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu. Bamidbar 13:9


+ 80 For the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi. Bamidbar 13:10


+ 89 For the tribe of Joseph, the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi the son of Susi. Bamidbar 13:11


+ 104 For the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli. Bamidbar 13:12


+ 83 For the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael. Bamidbar 13:13


+ 73 For the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi. Bamidbar 13:14


+ 87 For the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi. Bamidbar 13:15


+ 105 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


+ 124 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


+ 111 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


+ 96 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


+ 109 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


+ 76 So they went up and explored the land, from the desert of Zin until Rehov, at the entrance to Hamath. Bamidbar 13:21


+ 92 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


+ 111 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


+ 99 They called that place the Valley of Eshkol because of the cluster [eshkol] the children of Israel cut from there. Bamidbar 13:24


+ 85 They returned from scouting the Land at the end of forty days. Bamidbar 13:25


+ 120 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


+ 96 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


+ 102 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


+ 114 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


+ 120 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


+ 83 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


+ 113 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


+ 104 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


+ 127 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


+ 105 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


+ 108 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


+ 85 If they will see the Land that I swore to their fathers, and all who provoked Me will not see it. Bamidbar 13:23


+ 116 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


+ 89 The Amalekites and the Canaanites dwell in the valley. Tomorrow, turn back and journey into the desert toward the Red Sea." Bamidbar 13:25


+ 90 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, Bamidbar 13:26


+ 124 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


+ 104 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


+ 107 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


+ 99 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


+ 91 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


+ 83 But as for you, your corpses shall fall in this desert. Bamidbar 13:32


+ 108 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


+ 117 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


+ 94 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


+ 119 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


+ 80 The men who spread an evil report about the Land died in the plague, before the Lord. Bamidbar 14:37


+ 100 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


+ 114 Moses related all these words to the children of Israel, and the people mourned greatly. Bamidbar 14:39


+ 103 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


+ 121 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


+ 81 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 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


+ 96 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


+ 97 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


+ 81 Those who found him gathering wood presented him before Moses and Aaron and before the entire congregation. Bamidbar 15:33


+ 84 They put him under guard, since it was not specified what was to be done to him. Bamidbar 15:34


+ 100 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


+ 111 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


+ 75 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 15:37


+ 88 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


+ 88 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


+ 92 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


+ 93 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


+ 89 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 16:23


+ 102 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


+ 78 As soon as he finished speaking all these words, the earth beneath them split open. Bamidbar 16:31


+ 93 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


+ 77 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


+ 77 All Israel who were around them fled from their cries, for they said, "Lest the earth swallow us up too!" Bamidbar 16:34


+ 73 A fire came forth from the Lord and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who had offered up the incense. Bamidbar 16:35


+ 94 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


+ 73 He stood between the dead and the living, and the plague ceased. Bamidbar 17:13


+ 126 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


+ 84 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


+ 85 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


+ 99 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


+ 112 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


+ 99 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


+ 99 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


+ 79 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


+ 104 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


+ 93 The people quarreled with Moses, and they said, If only we had died with the death of our brothers before the Lord. Bamidbar 20:3


+ 100 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


+ 84 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron at Mount Hor, on the border of the land of Edom, saying, Bamidbar 20:23


+ 94 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


+ 95 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


+ 93 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


+ 101 Their kingdom is destroyed from Heshbon; it has been removed from Dibon; we laid them waste as far as Nophah which is near Medeba. Bamidbar 21:30


+ 79 Israel settled in the land of the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:31


+ 89 Moses sent men to spy out Jaazer and they captured its villages, driving out the Amorites who lived there. Bamidbar 21:32


+ 93 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


+ 101 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


+ 81 They smote him, his sons and all his people, until there was no survivor, and they took possession of his land. Bamidbar 21:35


+ 85 Moab became terrified of the people, for they were numerous, and Moab became disgusted because of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 22:3


+ 91 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


+ 95 The she-donkey saw the angel of the Lord stationed on the road with his sword drawn in his hand; so the she-donkey turned aside from the road and went into a field. Balaam beat the she-donkey to get it back onto the road. Bamidbar 22:23


+ 107 The she-donkey said to Balaam, "Am I not your she-donkey on which you have ridden since you first started until now? Have I been accustomed to do this to you?" He said, "No." Bamidbar 22:30


+ 102 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


+ 100 The angel of the Lord said to him, Why have you beaten your she-donkey these three times? Behold, I have came out to thwart you, for the one embarking on the journey has hastened against me. Bamidbar 22:32


+ 87 When the she-donkey saw me, it turned aside these three times. Had she not turned aside before me, now also I would also have killed you and spared her. Bamidbar 22:33


+ 92 Balaam said to the angel of the Lord, I have sinned, for I did not know that you were standing on the road before me. Now, if it displeases you, I will return. Bamidbar 22:34


+ 91 The angel of the Lord said to Balaam, Go with these men, but the word I will speak to you-that you shall speak. So Balaam went with Balak's dignitaries. Bamidbar 22:35


+ 83 Balak heard that Balaam was coming; so he went out toward him to the city of Moab which is on the border of Arnon-at the extreme edge of the border. Bamidbar 22:36


+ 101 Balak said to Balaam, "Did I not send to you to call for you? Why did you not come to me? Am I indeed incapable of honoring you?" Bamidbar 22:37


+ 98 Balaam said to Balak, "Behold I have come to you, do I have any power to say anything? The word God puts into my mouth-that I will speak." Bamidbar 22:38


+ 88 Balaam went with Balak, and they arrived at Kiryath Huzoth a city of streets. Bamidbar 22:39


+ 95 Balaam said to Balak, "Build me seven altars here, and prepare for me seven bulls and seven rams." Bamidbar 23:1


+ 79 Balak did as Balaam had requested, and Balak and Balaam offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. Bamidbar 23:2


+ 83 Balaam said to Balak, "Stand beside your burnt offering, and I will go. Perhaps the Lord will happen to appear to me, and He will show me something that I can tell you," and he went alone. Bamidbar 23:3


+ 91 God chanced upon Balaam, and he said to Him, "I have set up the seven altars, and I have offered up a bull and a ram on each altar." Bamidbar 23:4


+ 89 The Lord placed something into Balaam's mouth, and He said, "Return to Balak and say as follows." Bamidbar 23:5


+ 83 When he returned, Balak was standing next to his burnt offering, he and all the Moabite dignitaries. Bamidbar 23:6


+ 111 He took up his parable and said, Balak the king of Moab has brought me from Aram, from the mountains of the east saying, Come, curse Jacob for me and come invoke wrath against Israel. Bamidbar 23:7


+ 87 How can I curse whom God has not cursed, and how can I invoke wrath if the Lord has not been angered? Bamidbar 23:8


+ 90 For from their beginning, I see them as mountain peaks, and I behold them as hills; it is a nation that will dwell alone, and will not be reckoned among the nations. Bamidbar 23:9


+ 113 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


+ 91 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


+ 101 He answered, saying, What the Lord puts into my mouth that I must take care to say. Bamidbar 23:12


+ 102 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


+ 90 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


+ 89 He said to Balak, Stand here next to your burnt offering and I will be chanced on here. Bamidbar 23:15


+ 99 The Lord chanced upon Balaam and placed something into his mouth. He said, Return to Balak and so you shall speak. Bamidbar 23:16


+ 90 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


+ 86 He took up his parable and said, Arise, Balak, and hear; listen closely to me, son of Zippor. Bamidbar 23:18


+ 83 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


+ 94 I have received an instruction to bless, and He has blessed, and I cannot retract it. Bamidbar 23:20


+ 115 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


+ 72 God has brought them out of Egypt with the strength of His loftiness. Bamidbar 23:22


+ 97 For there is no divination in Jacob and no soothsaying in Israel. In time it will be said to Jacob and Israel, What has God wrought? Bamidbar 23:23


+ 102 Behold, a people that rises like a lioness See Malbim and raises itself like a lion. It does not lie down until it eats its prey and drinks the blood of the slain. Bamidbar 23:24


+ 91 Balak said to Balaam, "You shall neither curse them nor shall you bless them." Bamidbar 23:25


+ 99 Balaam answered and said to Balak, "Have I not spoken to you, saying, 'Everything the Lord speaks that I shall do." Bamidbar 23:26


+ 91 Balak said to Balaam, Come now, I will take you to a different place. Perhaps it will please God, and you will curse them for me from there. Bamidbar 23:27


+ 98 So Balak took Balaam to the peak of Peor, overlooking the wastelands. Bamidbar 23:28


+ 88 Balaam said to Balak, Build me seven altars here and prepare for me seven bulls and seven rams. Bamidbar 23:29


+ 85 Balak did as Balaam told him, and offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. Bamidbar 23:30


+ 79 He took up his parable and said, The word of Balaam the son of Beor and the word of the man with an open eye. Bamidbar 24:3


+ 96 If Balak gives me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot transgress the word of the Lord to do either good or evil on my own; only what the Lord speaks can I speak. Bamidbar 24:13


+ 75 He took up his parable and said, Alas! Who can survive these things from God? Bamidbar 24:23


+ 83 Israel became attached to Baal Peor, and the anger of the Lord flared against Israel. Bamidbar 25:3


+ 98 It shall be for him and for his descendants after him as an eternal covenant of kehunah, because he was zealous for his God and atoned for the children of Israel. Bamidbar 25:13


+ 92 Moses and Eleazar the kohen spoke with them in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying: Bamidbar 26:3


+ 74 The family of the Zerahites from Zerah, the family of the Shaulites from Shaul. Bamidbar 26:13


+ 84 The descendants of Issachar according to their families: the family of the Tolaites from Tola, the family of the Punites from Puvah, Bamidbar 26:23


+ 78 These were the family of the descendants of Gilead: The family of the Iezerites from Iezer, the family of the Helekites from Helek, Bamidbar 26:30


+ 63 The family of the Asrielites from Asriel, the family of the Shechemites from Shechem, Bamidbar 26:31


+ 74 The family of the Shemidaites from Shemida, the family of the Hepherites from Hepher. Bamidbar 26:32


+ 87 Now Zelophehad the son of Hepher had no sons, only daughters, and the names of Zelophehad's daughters were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah and Tirzah. Bamidbar 26:33


+ 74 These were families of Manasseh, and those of them counted were fifty two thousand and seven hundred. Bamidbar 26:34


+ 87 These were the descendants of Ephraim according to their families: the family of the Shuthalhites from Shuthelah, the family of the Bachrites from Becher, the family of the Tahanites from Tahan. Bamidbar 26:35


+ 66 And these were the descendants of Shuthelah: the family of the Eranites from Eran. Bamidbar 26:36


+ 71 These were the families of the descendants of Ephraim according to those of them counted, thirty two thousand and five hundred; these were the descendants of Joseph according to their families. Bamidbar 26:37


+ 83 The descendants of Benjamin according to their families: the family of the Belaites from Bela, the family of the Ashbelites from Ashbel, the family of the Ahiramites from Ahiram, Bamidbar 26:38


+ 65 The family of the Shuphamites from Shupham, the family of the Huphamites from Hupham. Bamidbar 26:39


+ 92 All the Shuhamite families according to those of them counted, were sixty four thousand and four hundred. Bamidbar 26:43


+ 70 You shall apportion the Land among these as an inheritance, in accordance with the number of names. Bamidbar 26:53


+ 92 This was the census of Moses and Eleazar the kohen, who counted the children of Israel in the plains of Moab, by the Jordan at Jericho. Bamidbar 26:63


+ 81 "Our father died in the desert, but he was not in the assembly that banded together against the Lord in Korah's assembly, but he died for his own sin, and he had no sons. Bamidbar 27:3


+ 77 And when you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, just as Aaron your brother was gathered. Bamidbar 27:13


+ 96 He laid his hands upon him and commanded him, in accordance with what the Lord had spoken to Moses. Bamidbar 27:23


+ 78 And you shall say to them: This is the fire offering which you shall offer to the Lord: two unblemished lambs in their first year each day as a continual burnt offering. Bamidbar 28:3


+ 77 And one tenth of fine flour mixed with oil as a meal offering for each lamb. A burnt offering with a spirit of satisfaction, a fire offering to the Lord. Bamidbar 28:13


+ 69 You shall offer these up besides the morning burnt offering which is offered as a continual burnt offering. Bamidbar 28:23


+ 67 One young male goat to atone for you. Bamidbar 28:30


+ 79 You shall offer this up besides the continual burnt offering and its meal offering they shall be unblemished for you, as well as their libations. Bamidbar 28:31


+ 78 And their meal offering shall be fine flour mixed with oil, three tenths for the bull and two tenths for the ram. Bamidbar 29:3


+ 90 You shall offer up a burnt offering, a fire offering for a spirit of satisfaction to the Lord: thirteen young bulls, two rams, fourteen lambs in the first year; they shall all be unblemished. Bamidbar 29:13


+ 74 And on the fourth day, ten bulls, two rams, and fourteen lambs in the first year, all unblemished. Bamidbar 29:23


+ 76 And their meal offerings and their libations, for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, as prescribed. Bamidbar 29:30


+ 73 And one young male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its meal offering, and its libations. Bamidbar 29:31


+ 69 And on the seventh day, seven bulls, two rams and fourteen lambs in the first year, all unblemished. Bamidbar 29:32


+ 71 And their meal offerings and their libations, for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, as prescribed for them. Bamidbar 29:33


+ 68 One young male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its meal offering, and its libation. Bamidbar 29:34


+ 61 The eighth day shall be a time of restriction for you; you shall not perform any mundane work. Bamidbar 29:35


+ 70 You shall offer up a burnt offering, a fire offering for a spirit of satisfaction to the Lord: one bull, one ram, and seven lambs in the first year, all unblemished. Bamidbar 29:36


+ 84 Their meal offerings and their libations, for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, as prescribed. Bamidbar 29:37


+ 75 And one young male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its meal offering and its libation. Bamidbar 29:38


+ 78 These you shall offer up for the Lord on your festivals, besides your vows and voluntary offerings, for your burnt offerings, for your meal offerings, for your libations, and for your peace offerings. Bamidbar 29:39


+ 94 Moses spoke to the children of Israel in accordance with all that the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 30:1


+ 92 Moses spoke to the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, saying: This is the thing the Lord has commanded. Bamidbar 30:2


+ 77 If a man makes a vow to the Lord or makes an oath to prohibit himself, he shall not violate his word; according to whatever came out of his mouth, he shall do. Bamidbar 30:3


+ 76 If a woman makes a vow to the Lord, or imposes a prohibition upon herself while in her father's house, in her youth, Bamidbar 30:4


+ 83 If her father heard her vow or her prohibition which she has prohibited upon herself, yet her father remains silent, all her vows shall stand, and any prohibition that she has imposed upon herself shall stand. Bamidbar 30:5


+ 89 But if her father hinders her on the day he hears it, all her vows and her prohibitions that she has imposed upon herself shall not stand. The Lord will forgive her because her father hindered her. Bamidbar 30:6


+ 79 But if she is betrothed to a man, with her vows upon her or by an utterance of her lips which she has imposed upon herself, Bamidbar 30:7


+ 73 And her husband hears it but remains silent on the day he hears it, her vows shall stand, and her prohibition which she has imposed upon herself shall stand. Bamidbar 30:8


+ 96 But if her husband hinders her on the day he heard it, he has revoked the vow she had taken upon herself and the utterance which she had imposed upon herself, and the Lord will forgive her. Bamidbar 30:9


+ 66 As for the vow of a widow or a divorced woman, whatever she prohibited upon herself will remain upon her. Bamidbar 30:10


+ 75 But if she vowed in her husband's house, or imposed a prohibition upon herself with an oath. Bamidbar 30:11


+ 75 And her husband heard and remained silent, and did not hinder her, all her vows shall stand, and every prohibition she imposed upon herself shall stand. Bamidbar 30:12


+ 95 If her husband revokes them on the day he hears them, anything issuing from her lips regarding her vows or self imposed prohibitions shall not stand; her husband has revoked them and the Lord shall forgive her. Bamidbar 30:13


+ 74 Any vow or any binding oath of self affliction, her husband can either uphold it or revoke it. Bamidbar 30:14


+ 82 However, if her husband remained silent from day to day, he has upheld all the vows and prohibitions she has assumed; he has upheld them since he remained silent on the day he heard it. Bamidbar 30:15


+ 60 If he revokes them after having heard them, he shall bear her iniquity. Bamidbar 30:16


+ 89 These are the statutes which the Lord commanded Moses concerning a man and his wife, a father and his daughter, in her youth, while in her father's house. Bamidbar 30:17


+ 79 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 31:1


+ 95 Take revenge for the children of Israel against the Midianites; afterwards you will be gathered to your people. Bamidbar 31:2


+ 84 So Moses spoke to the people, saying, "Arm from among you men for the army, that they can be against Midian, and carry out the revenge of the Lord against Midian. Bamidbar 31:3


+ 72 A thousand for each tribe, a thousand for each tribe, from all the tribes of Israel you shall send into the army. Bamidbar 31:4


+ 78 From the thousands of Israel one thousand was given over for each tribe, twelve thousand armed for battle. Bamidbar 31:5


+ 97 Moses sent them the thousand from each tribe to the army, them along with Phinehas the son of Eleazar the kohen to the army, with the sacred utensils and the trumpets for sounding in his possession. Bamidbar 31:6


+ 82 They mounted an attack against Midian, as the Lord had commanded Moses, and they killed every male. Bamidbar 31:7


+ 84 And they killed the Midianite kings upon their slain: Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba, the five kings of Midian, and Balaam the son of Beor they slew with the sword. Bamidbar 31:8


+ 103 The children of Israel took the Midianite women and their small children captive, and they plundered all their beasts, livestock, and all their possessions. Bamidbar 31:9


+ 68 They set fire to all their residential cities and their castles. Bamidbar 31:10


+ 88 They took all the booty and all the plunder of man and beast. Bamidbar 31:11


+ 98 They brought the captives, the plunder, and the booty to Moses and to Eleazar the kohen and to the entire community of Israel in the camp, in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho. Bamidbar 31:13


+ 85 Moses, Eleazar the kohen, and all princes of the community went out to meet them, outside the camp. Bamidbar 31:14


+ 117 Moses became angry with the officers of the army, the commanders of thousands and the commanders of hundreds, who had returned from the campaign of war. Bamidbar 31:14


+ 79 Moses said to them, Did you allow all the females to live? Bamidbar 31:15


+ 98 They were the same ones who were involved with the children of Israel on Balaam's advice to betray the Lord over the incident of Peor, resulting in a plague among the congregation of the Lord. Bamidbar 31:16


+ 81 So now kill every male child, and every woman who can lie intimately with a man you shall kill. Bamidbar 31:17


+ 77 And all the young girls who have no experience of intimate relations with a man, you may keep alive for yourselves. Bamidbar 31:18


+ 88 And you, encamp outside the camp for seven days; whoever killed a person or who touched a corpse shall cleanse himself on the third and seventh day, both you and your captives. Bamidbar 31:19


+ 83 All garments, leather articles, any goat product, and every wooden article shall undergo purification. Bamidbar 31:20


+ 82 Eleazar the kohen said to the soldiers returning from battle, This is the statute that the Lord commanded Moses. Bamidbar 31:21


+ 70 Only the gold, the silver, the copper, the iron, the tin, and the lead. Bamidbar 31:22


+ 82 Whatever is used in fire you shall pass through fire and then it will be clean; it must, however, also be cleansed with sprinkling water, and whatever is not used in fire you shall pass through water. Bamidbar 31:23


+ 80 You shall wash your garments on the seventh day and become ritually clean; afterwards, you may enter the camp. Bamidbar 31:24


+ 80 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Bamidbar 31:25


+ 71 Take a count of the plunder of the captive people and animals, you, together with Eleazar the kohen and the paternal leaders of the community. Bamidbar 31:26


+ 75 And you shall divide the plunder equally between the warriors who went out to battle and the entire congregation. Bamidbar 31:27


+ 86 And you shall levy a tax for the Lord from the soldiers who went out to battle: one soul out of every five hundred, from the people, from the cattle, from the donkeys, and from the sheep. Bamidbar 31:28


+ 83 You shall take from their half and give it to Eleazar the kohen as a gift to the Lord. Bamidbar 31:29


+ 104 From the half belonging to the children of Israel you shall take one part out of fifty of the people, of the cattle, of the donkeys, of the sheep, and of all animals, and you shall give them to the Levites, the guardians of the Mishkan of the Lord." Bamidbar 31:30


+ 79 Moses and Eleazar the kohen did as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 31:31


+ 81 The plunder, which was in addition to the spoils that the army had spoiled, consisted of six hundred and seventy five thousand sheep. Bamidbar 31:32


+ 63 Seventy two thousand cattle. Bamidbar 31:33


+ 61 Sixty one thousand donkeys. Bamidbar 31:34


+ 63 As for the people, of the women who had no experience of intimate relations with a man, all souls were thirty two thousand. Bamidbar 31:35


+ 73 The half that was the portion of those who went out to battle: the number of sheep was three hundred and thirty seven thousand, five hundred. Bamidbar 31:36


+ 72 The tax to the Lord from the sheep was six hundred and seventy five. Bamidbar 31:37


+ 78 Thirty six thousand cattle, of which the tax to the Lord was seventy two. Bamidbar 31:38


+ 65 Thirty thousand and five hundred donkeys, of which the tax to the Lord was sixty one. Bamidbar 31:39


+ 68 Sixteen thousand people, of which the tax to the Lord was thirty two people. Bamidbar 31:40


+ 76 Moses gave the tax which was a gift to the Lord, to Eleazar the kohen, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 31:41


+ 107 And from the half allotted to the children of Israel, which Moses had divided from the men who had gone into the army. Bamidbar 31:42


+ 68 The community's half consisted of three hundred and thirty seven thousand, five hundred sheep. Bamidbar 31:43


+ 66 Thirty six thousand cattle. Bamidbar 31:44


+ 64 Thirty thousand five hundred donkeys. Bamidbar 31:45


+ 59 And sixteen thousand people. Bamidbar 31:46


+ 102 Moses took one part out of fifty from the half of the children of Israel, the people and the animals, and gave them to the Levites, the guardians of the Lord's sanctuary as G-d commanded Moses. Bamidbar 31:47


+ 91 The officers appointed over the army's thousands, the commanders of thousands and the commanders of hundreds, approached Moses. Bamidbar 31:48


+ 97 They said to Moses, Your servants counted the soldiers who were in our charge, and not one man was missing from us. Bamidbar 31:49


+ 93 We therefore wish to bring an offering for the Lord. Any man who found a gold article, be it an anklet, a bracelet, a ring, an earring, or a body ornament, to atone for our souls before the Lord. Bamidbar 31:50


+ 95 Moses and Eleazar the kohen took all the gold articles from them. Bamidbar 31:51


+ 105 The total of the gift of gold which they dedicated to the Lord amounted to sixteen thousand, seven hundred and fifty shekels; this was from the commanders of the thousands and the commanders of the hundreds. Bamidbar 31:52


+ 76 The soldiers had seized spoils for themselves. Bamidbar 31:53


+ 101 Moses and Eleazar the kohen took the gold from the commanders of the thousands and hundreds and brought it to the Tent of Meeting, as a remembrance for the children of Israel before the Lord. Bamidbar 31:54


+ 99 The descendants of Reuben and Gad had an abundance of livestock very numerous and they saw the land of Jazer and the land of Gilead, and behold, the place was a place for livestock. Bamidbar 32:1


+ 87 The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben came, and they spoke to Moses and to Eleazar the kohen and to the princes of the community, saying, Bamidbar 32:2


+ 86 Ataroth, Dibon, Jazer, and Nimrah, Heshbon, Elealeh, Sebam, Nebo, and Beon, Bamidbar 32:3


+ 88 The land that the Lord struck down before the congregation of Israel is a land for livestock, and your servants have livestock. Bamidbar 32:4


+ 90 They said, If it pleases you, let this land be given to your servants as a heritage; do not take us across the Jordan. Bamidbar 32:5


+ 91 Thereupon, Moses said to the descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben, Shall your brethren go to war while you stay here? Bamidbar 32:6


+ 95 Why do you discourage the children of Israel from crossing over to the land which the Lord has given them? Bamidbar 32:7


+ 78 This is what your fathers did when I sent them from Kadesh barnea to explore the Land. Bamidbar 32:8


+ 106 They went up to the Valley of Eshkol and saw the land, and they discouraged the children of Israel from crossing into the land which the Lord has given them. Bamidbar 32:9


+ 76 The anger of the Lord flared on that day, and He swore, saying, Bamidbar 32:10


+ 108 'None of the men from the age of twenty years and over who came out of Egypt will see the land that I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, for they did not follow Me wholeheartedly, Bamidbar 32:11


+ 103 Except for Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizite and Joshua the son of Nun, for they followed the Lord wholeheartedly. Bamidbar 32:12


+ 103 The anger of the Lord flared against Israel, and He made them wander in the desert for forty years until the entire generation who had done evil in the eyes of the Lord had died out. Bamidbar 32:13


+ 103 And behold, you have now risen in place of your fathers as a society of sinful people, to add to the wrathful anger of the Lord against Israel. Bamidbar 32:14


+ 88 If you turn away from following Him, He will leave you in the desert again, and you will destroy this entire people. Bamidbar 32:15


+ 95 They approached him and said, We will build sheepfolds for our livestock here and cities for our children. Bamidbar 32:16


+ 103 We will then arm ourselves quickly and go before the children of Israel until we have brought them to their place. Our children will reside in the fortified cities on account of the inhabitants of the land. Bamidbar 32:17


+ 87 We shall not return to our homes until each of the children of Israel has taken possession of his inheritance. Bamidbar 32:18


+ 74 For we will not inherit with them on the other side of the Jordan and beyond, because our inheritance has come to us on the east bank of the Jordan. Bamidbar 32:19


+ 85 Moses said to them, If you do this thing, if you arm yourselves for battle before the Lord, Bamidbar 32:20


+ 76 And your armed force crosses the Jordan before the Lord until He has driven out His enemies before Him, Bamidbar 32:21


+ 89 And the Land will be conquered before the Lord, afterwards you may return, and you shall be freed [of your obligation] from the Lord and from Israel, and this land will become your heritage before the Lord. Bamidbar 32:22


+ 87 But, if you do not do so, behold, you will have sinned against the Lord, and be aware of your sin which will find you. Bamidbar 32:23


+ 91 So build yourselves cities for your children and enclosures for your sheep, and what has proceeded from your mouth you shall do." Bamidbar 32:24


+ 82 The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben spoke to Moses, saying, "Your servants will do as my master commands. Bamidbar 32:25


+ 71 Our children and our wives, our livestock and our cattle will remain there, in the cities of Gilead. Bamidbar 32:26


+ 77 But your servants will cross over all who are armed for combat before the Lord, for the battle, as my master has spoken." Bamidbar 32:27


+ 93 Moses commanded Eleazar the kohen and Joshua the son of Nun and all the paternal heads of the tribes of the children of Israel concerning them. Bamidbar 32:28


+ 93 Moses said to them, "If the descendants of Gad and Reuben cross the Jordan with you armed for battle before the Lord, and the Land is conquered before you, you shall give them the land of Gilead as a heritage. Bamidbar 32:29


+ 66 But if they do not cross over with you armed for battle, they shall receive a possession among you in the land of Canaan." Bamidbar 32:30


+ 74 The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben answered, saying, "We shall do as the Lord has spoken to your servants. Bamidbar 32:31


+ 78 We shall cross over in an armed force before the Lord to the land of Canaan, and then we shall have the possession of our inheritance on this side of the Jordan." Bamidbar 32:32


+ 97 Moses gave the descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben and half the tribe of Manasseh the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon, king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of Og, king of Bashan the land together with its cities within borders, the cities of the surrounding territory. Bamidbar 32:33


+ 62 The descendants of Gad built Dibon, Ataroth, and Aroer. Bamidbar 32:34


+ 64 And Atroth Shophan, Jazer, and Jogbehah. Bamidbar 32:35


+ 75 And Beth Nimrah and Beth Haran, fortified cities and sheepfolds. Bamidbar 32:36


+ 73 The descendants of Reuben built Heshbon, Elealeh, and Kirjathaim. Bamidbar 32:37


+ 72 And Nebo and Baal Meon, their names having been changed, and Sibmah. And they were called with names of the names of the cities they built. Bamidbar 32:38


+ 87 The children of Machir the son of Manasseh went to Gilead and conquered it, driving out the Amorites who were there. Bamidbar 32:39


+ 91 Moses gave Gilead to Machir the son of Manasseh, and he settled in it. Bamidbar 32:40


+ 73 Jair the son of Manasseh went and conquered their hamlets, and called them the hamlets of Jair. Bamidbar 32:41


+ 80 Nobah went and conquered Kenath and its surrounding villages, and called it Nobah, after his name. Bamidbar 32:42


+ 89 These are the journeys of the children of Israel who left the land of Egypt in their legions, under the charge of Moses and Aaron. Bamidbar 33:1


+ 87 Moses recorded their starting points for their journeys according to the word of the Lord, and these were their journeys with their starting points. Bamidbar 33:2


+ 98 They journeyed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the day following the Passover sacrifice, the children of Israel left triumphantly before the eyes of all the Egyptians. Bamidbar 33:3


+ 89 And the Egyptians were busy burying because the Lord had struck down their firstborn and had wrought vengeance against their deities. Bamidbar 33:4


+ 77 The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses and camped in Succoth. Bamidbar 33:5


+ 66 They journeyed from Succoth and camped in Etham, at the edge of the desert. Bamidbar 33:6


+ 85 They journeyed from Etham and camped in Pi hahiroth, which faces Baal zephon; and they camped in front of Migdol. Bamidbar 33:7


+ 88 They journeyed from Penei hahiroth and crossed in the midst of the sea to the desert. They walked for three days in the desert of Etham and camped in Marah. Bamidbar 33:8


+ 85 They journeyed from Marah and arrived in Elim, and in Elim there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees, and they camped there. Bamidbar 33:9


+ 68 They journeyed from Elim and camped by the Red Sea. Bamidbar 33:10


+ 71 They journeyed from the Red Sea and camped in the desert of Sin. Bamidbar 33:11

+ 79 They journeyed from the mountains of Abarim and camped in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho. Bamidbar 33:48


+ 67 They camped along the Jordan from Beth jeshimoth to Abel shittim, in the plains of Moab. Bamidbar 33:49


+ 78 The Lord spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying: Bamidbar 33:50


+ 74 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan, Bamidbar 33:51


+ 83 You shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their temples, destroy their molten idols, and demolish their high places. Bamidbar 33:52


+ 60 You shall clear out the Land and settle in it, for I have given you the Land to occupy it. Bamidbar 33:53


+ 86 You shall give the Land as an inheritance to your families by lot; to the large, you shall give a larger inheritance and to the small you shall give a smaller inheritance; wherever the lot falls shall be his; according to the tribes of your fathers, you shall inherit. Bamidbar 33:54


+ 93 But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the Land from before you, then those whom you leave over will be as spikes in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they will harass you in the land in which you settle. Bamidbar 33:55


+ 59 And it will be that what I had intended to do to them, I will do to you. Bamidbar 33:56


+ 73 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 34:1


+ 90 Command the children of Israel and say to them, When you arrive in the land of Canaan, this is the land which shall fall to you as an inheritance, the land of Canaan according to its borders. Bamidbar 34:2


+ 78 Your southernmost corner shall be from the desert of Zin along Edom, and the southern border shall be from the edge of the Sea of Salt [the Dead Sea] to the east. Bamidbar 34:3


+ 81 The border then turns south of Maaleh Akrabim [elevation of Akrabim], passing toward Zin, and its ends shall be to the south of Kadesh barnea. Then it shall extend to Hazar addar and continue toward Azmon. Bamidbar 33:4


+ 65 The border then turns from Azmon to the stream of Egypt, and its ends shall be to the sea. Bamidbar 33:5


+ 66 The western border: it shall be for you the Great [Mediterranean] Sea and the border this shall be your western border. ?Bamidbar 34:6


+ 71 This shall be your northern border: From the Great [Mediterranean] Sea turn yourselves toward Mount Hor. Bamidbar 34:7


+ 64 From Mount Hor turn to the entrance of Hamath, and the ends of the border shall be toward Zedad. Bamidbar 34:8


+ 71 The border shall then extend to Ziphron, and its ends shall be Hazar enan; this shall be your northern border. Bamidbar 34:9


+ 76 You shall then turn yourselves toward the eastern border, from Hazar enan to Shepham. Bamidbar 34:10


+ 73 The border descends from Shepham toward Riblah, to the east of Ain. Then the border descends and hits the eastern shore of Lake Kinnereth. Bamidbar 34:11


+ 83 The border then continues down along the Jordan, and its ends is the Sea of Salt [the Dead Sea]; this shall be your Land according to its borders around. Bamidbar 34:12


+ 95 Moses commanded the children of Israel saying, "This is the Land which you are to apportion for inheritance through lot, that the Lord has commanded to give to the nine and a half tribes. Bamidbar 34:13


+ 93 For the tribe of Reuben's descendants according to their fathers' house, and the tribe of Gad's descendants according to their fathers' house, and half the tribe of Manasseh have already received their inheritance. Bamidbar 34:14


+ 79 The two and a half tribes have received their inheritance on this side of the Jordan, near Jericho in the east, toward the sunrise." Bamidbar 34:15


+ 70 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 34:16


+ 80 These are the names of the men who shall inherit the land on your behalf: Eleazar the kohen and Joshua the son of Nun. Bamidbar 34:17


+ 79 You shall take one chieftain from each tribe to help you to acquire the land. Bamidbar 34:18


+ 72 These are the names of the men: for the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh. Bamidbar 34:19


+ 98 For the tribe of the descendants of Simeon, Samuel the son of Ammihud. Bamidbar 34:20


+ 75 For the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon. Bamidbar 34:21


+ 58 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli. Bamidbar 34:22


+ 64 For the descendants of Joseph; the chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod. Bamidbar 34:23


+ 65 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli. Bamidbar 34:22


+ 65 For the descendants of Joseph; the chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod. Bamidbar 34:23


+ 58 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Ephraim, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan. Bamidbar 34:24

+ 65 The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Asher, Ahihud the son of Shelomi. Bamidbar 34:27


+ 70 The chieftain of the tribe of the descendants of Naphtali, Pedahel the son of Ammihud. Bamidbar 34:28


+ 85 These are the ones whom the Lord commanded to apportion the inheritance to the children of Israel in the land of Canaan. Bamidbar 34:29


+ 76 The Lord spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab, by the Jordan at Jericho saying: Bamidbar 35:1


+ 92 Command the children of Israel that they shall give to the Levites from their hereditary possession cities in which to dwell, and you shall give the Levites open spaces around the cities. Bamidbar 35:2


+ 65 These cities shall be theirs for dwelling, and their open spaces shall be for their cattle, their property, and for all their needs. Bamidbar 35:3


+ 79 The areas of open space for the cities which you shall give to the Levites shall extend from the wall of the city outward, one thousand cubits all around. Bamidbar 35:4


+ 94 You shall measure from outside the city, two thousand cubits on the eastern side, two thousand cubits on the southern side, two thousand cubits on the western side, and two thousand cubits on the northern side, with the city in the middle; this shall be your cities' open spaces. Bamidbar 35:5


+ 78 Among the cities you shall give to the Levites, shall be six cities of refuge, which you shall provide as places to which a murderer can flee. In addition to them, you shall provide forty two cities. Bamidbar 35:6


+ 73 All the cities you shall give to the Levites shall number forty eight cities, them with their open spaces. Bamidbar 35:7


+ 111 And as for the cities that you shall give from the possession of the children of Israel, you shall take more from a larger [holding] and you shall take less from a smaller one. Each one, according to the inheritance allotted to him, shall give of his cities to the Levites. Bamidbar 35:8


+ 79 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 35:9


+ 75 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, When you cross the Jordan to the land of Canaan, Bamidbar 35:10


+ 90 You shall designate cities for yourselves; they shall be cities of refuge for you, and a murderer who killed a person unintentionally shall flee there. Bamidbar 35:11


+ 85 These cities shall serve you as a refuge from an avenger, so that the murderer shall not die until he stands in judgment before the congregation. Bamidbar 35:12


+ 80 The cities that you provide shall serve as six cities of refuge for you. Bamidbar 35:13


+ 66 You shall provide the three cities in trans Jordan and the three cities in the land of Canaan; they shall be cities of refuge. Bamidbar 35:14


+ 103 These six cities shall be a refuge for the children of Israel and for the proselyte and resident among them, so that anyone who unintentionally kills a person can flee there. Bamidbar 35:15


+ 70 If he struck him with an iron instrument and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. Bamidbar 35:16


+ 75 If he struck him with a fist sized stone which is deadly, and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. Bamidbar 35:17


+ 83 Or with a fist sized wooden instrument which is deadly,and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. Bamidbar 35:18


+ 65 The blood avenger shall kill the murderer; he may kill him when he meets him. Bamidbar 35:19


+ 83 If, out of hatred, he pushed him, or threw something at him with premeditation, and he died, Bamidbar 35:20


+ 86 Or if he maliciously struck him with his hand and he died, the assailant shall be put to death; he is a murderer; the blood avenger may kill the murderer when he meets him. Bamidbar 35:21


+ 86 But if he pushed him accidentally, without malice, or threw an object at him without premeditation, Bamidbar 35:22


+ 88 Or, with any stone which is deadly, and without seeing [his victim] he threw it down at him and it killed him, but he was not his enemy and bore him no malice Bamidbar 35:23


+ 71 Then the congregation shall judge between the assailant and the blood avenger, on the basis of these judgments. Bamidbar 35:24


+ 78 The congregation shall protect the murderer from the hand of the blood avenger, and the congregation shall return him to the city of refuge to which he had fled, and he shall remain there until the Kohen Gadol, who anointed him with the sacred oil, dies. Bamidbar 35:25


+ 64 But if the murderer goes beyond the border of the city of refuge to which he had fled, Bamidbar 35:26


+ 80 And the blood avenger finds him outside the limits of his city of refuge, and the blood avenger slays the murderer, he has no blood. Bamidbar 35:27


+ 71 For he shall remain in his city of refuge until the Kohen Gadol dies, and only after the Kohen Gadol has died, may the murderer return to the land which is his possession. Bamidbar 35:28


+ 86 These shall be for you a statute of justice for all your generations, in all your dwelling places. Bamidbar 35:29


+ 90 Whoever namely the blood avenger kills a person, based on the testimony of witnesses, he shall slay the murderer. A single witness may not testify against a person so that he should die. Bamidbar 35:30


+ 69 You shall not accept ransom for the life of a murderer, who is guilty of death, for he shall be put to death. Bamidbar 35:31


+ 68 You shall not accept ransom for one who has fled to his city of refuge, to allow him to return to live in the Land, before the kohen has died. Bamidbar 35:32


+ 77 And you shall not corrupt the land in which you live, for the blood corrupts the land, and the blood which is shed in the land cannot be atoned for except through the blood of the one who shed it. Bamidbar 35:33


+ 94 And you shall not defile the land where you reside, in which I dwell, for I am the Lord Who dwells among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 35:34


+ 93 The paternal heads of the family of the sons of Gilead the son of Machir the son of Manasseh of the families of the sons of Joseph approached and spoke before Moses and before the chieftains, the paternal heads of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 36:1


+ 86 They said, The Lord commanded my master to give the Land as an inheritance through lot to the children of Israel, and our master was commanded by the Lord to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother to his daughters. Bamidbar 36:2


+ 87 Now, if they marry a member of another tribe of the children of Israel, their inheritance will be diminished from the inheritance of our father, and it will be added to the inheritance of the tribe into which they marry, and thus, it will be diminished from the lot of our inheritance. Bamidbar 36:3


+ 114 Even if the children of Israel will have a Jubilee, their inheritance will be added to the inheritance of the tribe into which they marry, and their inheritance will be diminished from the inheritance of our father's tribe. Bamidbar 36:4


+ 98 Moses commanded the children of Israel according to the word of the Lord, saying, The tribe of Joseph's descendants speak justly. Bamidbar 36:5


+ 89 This is the word that the Lord has commanded regarding Zelophehad's daughters. Let them marry whomever they please, but they shall marry only to the family of their father's tribe. Bamidbar 36:6


+ 95 Thus, the inheritance of the children of Israel will not be transferred from tribe to tribe, for each person from the children of Israel will remain attached to the inheritance of his father's tribe. Bamidbar 36:7


+ 86 Every daughter from the tribes of the children of Israel who inherits property, shall marry a member of her father's tribe, so each one of the children of Israel shall inherit the property of his forefathers. Bamidbar 36:8


+ 97 And no inheritance will be transferred from one tribe to another tribe, for each person of the tribes of the children of Israel shall remain attached to his own inheritance." Bamidbar 36:9


+ 72 As the Lord had commanded Moses, so did Zelophehad's daughters do. Bamidbar 36:10


+ 87 Mahlah, Tirzah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Noah married their cousins. Bamidbar 36:11


+ 78 They married into the families of the sons of Manasseh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained with the tribe of their father's family. Bamidbar 36:12


+ 113 These are the commandments and the ordinances that the Lord commanded the children of Israel through Moses in the plains of Moab, by the Jordan at Jericho. Bamidbar 36:13


+ 110 It came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, that Moses spoke to the children of Israel according to all that the Lord had commanded him regarding them; Devarim 1:3


+ 96 Prepare for yourselves wise and understanding men, known among your tribes, and I will make them heads over you. Devarim 1:13


+ 110 And the matter pleased me; so I took twelve men from you, one man for each tribe. Devarim 1:23


+ 95 The Lord, your God, Who goes before you He will fight for you, just as He did for you in Egypt before your very eyes, Devarim 1:30


+ 119 And in the desert, where you have seen how the Lord, your God, has carried you as a man carries his son, all the way that you have gone, until you have come to this place. Devarim 1:31


+ 112 But regarding this matter, you do not believe the Lord, your God, Devarim 1:32


+ 138 Who goes before you on the way, to search out a place for you, in which to encamp, in fire at night, to enable you to see on the way you should go, and in a cloud by day. Devarim 1:33


+ 105 And the Lord heard the sound of your words, and He became angry and swore, saying, Devarim 1:34


+ 104 If any of these men of this evil generation sees the good land, which I swore to give your forefathers, Devarim 1:35


+ 107 Except Caleb the son of Jephunneh he will see it, and I will give him the land he trod upon, and to his children, because he has completely followed the Lord. Devarim 1:36


+ 92 The Lord was also angry with me because of you, saying, Neither will you go there. Devarim 1:37


+ 98 But Joshua the son of Nun, who stands before you he will go there; strengthen him, for he will cause Israel to inherit it. Devarim 1:38


+ 96 Moreover your little ones, whom you said will be prey, and your children, who on that day did not know good and evil they will go there and I will give it to them, and they will possess it. Devarim 1:39


+ 105 So I spoke to you, but you did not listen, and you rebelled against the command of the Lord, and you acted wickedly and went up to the mountain. Devarim 1:43


+ 94 You have circled this mountain long enough; turn northward. Devarim 2:3


+ 82 Now get up and cross the brook of Zered. So we crossed the brook of Zered. Devarim 2:13


+ 97 But the Avim, who dwell in open cities, up till Gaza -- the Caphtorites, who came forth of Caphtor, exterminated them, and dwelt in their stead. Devarim 2:23


+ 112 But Sihon, king of Heshbon, did not wish to let us pass by him, for the Lord your God caused his spirit to be hardened and his heart to be obstinate, in order that He would give him into your hand, as this day. Devarim 2:30


+ 93 And the Lord said to me, Behold I have begun to deliver Sihon and his land before you; begin to drive him out, that you may inherit his land. Devarim 2:31


+ 91 Then Sihon went forth towards us, he and all his people, to war at Jahzah. Devarim 2:32


+ 89 And the Lord our God delivered him to us; and we smote him and his sons and all his people. Devarim 2:33


+ 105 And we conquered all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed every city, the men, women, and the young children; we left over no survivor. Devarim 2:34


+ 113 Only the cattle we took for a prey unto ourselves with the spoil of the cities which we had taken. Devarim 2:35


+ 97 From Aroer which is on the edge of the valley of Arnon, and from the city that is in the valley,even unto Gilead, there was not a city too high for us: the Lord our God delivered up all before us. Devarim 2:36


+ 117 Only to the land of the children of Ammon you came not near; all the side of the river Yabbok and the cities of the hill country, and wherever the Lord our God commanded us. Devarim 2:37


+ 104 Then we turned and went up the way of Bashan, and Og, the king of Bashan, came forth toward us, he and all his people, to war at Edrei Devarim 3:1


+ 109 And the Lord said to me, Do not fear him, for I have given him, all his people, and his land into your hand, and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon, king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon. Devarim 3:2


+ 107 So the Lord, our God, delivered into our hands also Og, the king of Bashan and all his people, and we smote him until no remnant remained of him. Devarim 3:3


+ 117 And we conquered all his cities at that time; there was not a town that we did not take from them sixty cities, all the territory of Argob the kingdom of Og in Bashan. Devarim 3:4


+ 111 All these cities were fortified with high walls, double doors, and bolts, in addition to a great many unwalled cities. Devarim 3:5


+ 95 And we utterly destroyed them as we did to Sihon, king of Heshbon, utterly destroying every city, the men, the women, and the young children. Devarim 3:6


+ 108 But all the beasts and the spoils of the cities, we took as spoil for ourselves. Devarim 3:7


+ 95 At that time we took the land out of the hands of the two kings of the Amorites who were on that side of the Jordan, from the brook of Arnon to Mount Hermon. Devarim 3:8


+ 88 The Sidonians call Hermon Sirion; and the Amorites call it Senir. Devarim 3:9


+ 100 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, to Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. Devarim 3:10


+ 121 For only Og, king of Bashan, was left from the remnant of the Rephaim. His bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbah of the children of Ammon? Nine cubits was its length, and four cubits its breadth, according to the cubit of a man. Devarim 3:11


+ 120 And this land, which we possessed at that time; from Aro'er, which is by the brook of Arnon, and half of Mount Gilead and its cities, I gave to the Reubenites and to the Gadites. Devarim 3:12


+ 107 And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to the half tribe of Manasseh; all the territory of Argob, all of Bashan; that is called the land of Rephaim. Devarim 3:13


+ 100 Jair the son of Manasseh took all the territory of Argob to the boundaries of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and he called them, even Bashan, after his own name, villages of Jair, to this day. Devarim 3:14


+ 84 And to Machir I gave Gilead. Devarim 3:15


+ 103 And to the Reubenites and to the Gadites I gave from Gilead to the brook of Arnon, the midst of the brook and the border, until the brook of Jabbok, which is the boundary of the children of Ammon, Devarim 3:16


+ 93 The plain, the Jordan and the border thereof, from Kinnereth to the sea of the plain the Sea of Salt, under the waterfalls of Pisgah, eastward. Devarim 3:17


+ 101 And I commanded you at that time saying, The Lord, your God, has given you this land to possess it; pass over, armed, before your brothers, the children of Israel, all who are warriors. Devarim 3:18


+ 97 But your wives, your young children, and your cattle for I know that you have much cattle shall dwell in your cities which I have given you, Devarim 3:19


+ 89 Until the Lord has given rest to your brothers, just as He did for you, and until they also possess the land which the Lord, your God, is giving them on the other side of the Jordan, then every man shall return to his possession, which I have given to you. Devarim 3:20


+ 98 Until the Lord has given rest to your brothers, just as He did for you, and until they also possess the land which the Lord, your God, is giving them on the other side of the Jordan, then every man shall return to his possession, which I have given to you. Devarim 3:21


+ 90 Do not fear them, for it is the Lord, your God, Who is fighting for you. Devarim 3:22


+ 79 I entreated the Lord at that time, saying, Devarim 3:23


+ 96 O Lord God, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your strong hand, for who is like God in heaven or on earth who can do as Your deeds and Your might? Devarim 3:24


+ 97 Pray let me cross over and see the good land that is on the other side of the Jordan, this good mountain and the Lebanon. Devarim 3:25


+ 95 But the Lord was angry with me because of you, and He did not listen to me, and the Lord said to me, It is enough for you; speak to Me no more regarding this matter. Devarim 3:26


+ 111 Go up to the top of the hill and lift up your eyes westward and northward and southward and eastward and see with your eyes, for you shall not cross this Jordan. Devarim 3:27


+ 92 But command Joshua and strengthen him and encourage him, for he will cross over before this people, and he will make them inherit the land which you will see. Devarim 3:28


+ 95 And we abided in the valley opposite Beth Peor. Devarim 3:29


+ 96 Your eyes have seen what the Lord did at Baal Peor, for every man who went after Baal Peor, the Lord your God has exterminated from your midst. Devarim 4:3


+ 92 And He told you His covenant, which He commanded you to do, the Ten Commandments, and He inscribed them on two stone tablets. Devarim 4:13


+ 124 Beware, lest you forget the covenant of the Lord your God, which He made with you, and make for yourselves a graven image, the likeness of anything, which the Lord your God has forbidden you. Devarim 4:23


+ 106 When you are distressed, and all these things happen upon you in the end of days, then you will return to the Lord your God and obey Him. Devarim 4:30


+ 107 For the Lord your God is a merciful God; He will not let you loose or destroy you; neither will He forget the covenant of your fathers, which He swore to them. Devarim 4:31


+ 102 For ask now regarding the early days that were before you, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and from one end of the heavens to the other end of the heavens, whether there was anything like this great thing, or was the likes of it heard? Devarim 4:32


+ 94 Did ever a people hear God's voice speaking out of the midst of the fire as you have heard, and live? Devarim 4:33


+ 112 Or has any god performed miracles to come and take him a nation from the midst of a[nother] nation, with trials, with signs, and with wonders, and with war and with a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great awesome deeds, as all that the Lord your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? Devarim 4:34


+ 113 You have been shown, in order to know that the Lord He is God; there is none else besides Him. Devarim 4:35


+ 105 From the heavens, He let you hear His voice to instruct you, and upon the earth He showed you His great fire, and you heard His words out of the midst of the fire, Devarim 4:36


+ 99 And because He loved your forefathers and chose their seed after them, and He brought you out of Egypt before Him with His great strength, Devarim 4:37


+ 83 To drive out from before you nations greater and stronger than you, to bring you and give you their land for an inheritance, as this day. Devarim 4:38


+ 115 And you shall know this day and consider it in your heart, that the Lord He is God in heaven above, and upon the earth below; there is none else. Devarim 4:39


+ 104 Bezer in the desert, in the plain country of the Reubenites, Ramoth in Gilead of the Gadites, and Golan in the Bashan of the Menassites. Devarim 4:43


+ 95 Not with our forefathers did the Lord make this covenant, but with us, we, all of whom are here alive today. Devarim 5:3


+ 88 Six days may you work, and perform all your labor, Devarim 5:13


+ 92 For who is there of all flesh, who heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? Devarim 5:23


+ 103 In all the way which the Lord, your God, has commanded you, you shall go, in order that you may live and that it may be well with you, and so that you may prolong your days in the land you will possess. Devarim 5:30


+ 109 And you shall, therefore, hearken, O Israel, and be sure to perform, so that it will be good for you, and so that you may increase exceedingly, just as the Lord, the God of your fathers, spoke to you, a land flowing with milk and honey. Devarim 6:3


+ 89 You shall fear the Lord, your God, worship Him, and swear by His name. Devarim 6:13

+ 111 And He afflicted you and let you go hungry, and then fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your forefathers know, so that He would make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but rather by, whatever comes forth from the mouth of the Lord does man live. Devarim 8:3


+ 99 And your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and gold increase, and all that you have increases, Devarim 8:13


+ 106 You shall know this day, that it is the Lord your God Who passes over before you as a consuming fire He will destroy them, and He will subdue them before you; and you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the Lord spoke to you. Devarim 9:3


+ 104 And the Lord spoke to me further, saying, "I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people. Devarim 9:13


+ 104 And when the Lord sent you from Kadesh Barnea, saying, "Go up and possess the land I have given you," you defied the word of the Lord your God, and you did not believe Him, nor did you obey Him. Devarim 9:23


+ 92 So I made an ark of acacia wood, and I hewed two stone tablets like the first ones, and I ascended the mountain, with the two tablets in my hand." Devarim 10:3


+ 95 To keep the commandments of the Lord and His statutes, which I command you this day, for your good. Devarim 10:13


+ 82 His signs, and His deeds, which He performed in the midst of Egypt, to Pharaoh, king of Egypt and to his entire land, Devarim 11:3


+ 112 And it will be, if you hearken to My commandments that I command you this day to love the Lord, your God, and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, Devarim 11:13


+ 79 Then the Lord will drive out all these nations from before you, and you will possess nations greater and stronger than you. Devarim 11:23


+ 109 Are they not on the other side of the Jordan, way beyond, in the direction of the sunset, in the land of the Canaanites, who dwell in the plain, opposite Gilgal, near the plains of Moreh? Devarim 11:30

+ 87 And you shall keep to perform all the statutes and ordinances that I am setting before you today. Devarim 11:32


+ 102 And you shall tear down their altars, smash their monuments, burn their asherim with fire, cut down the graven images of their gods, and destroy their name from that place. Devarim 12:3


+ 92 Beware, lest you offer up your burnt offerings any place you see. Devarim 12:13

+ 100 Beware, lest you be attracted after them, after they are exterminated from before you; and lest you inquire about their gods, saying, "How did these nations serve their gods? And I will do likewise." Devarim 12:30


+ 93 You shall not do so to the Lord, your God; for every abomination to the Lord which He hates, they did to their gods, for also their sons and their daughters they would burn in fire to their gods. Devarim 12:31


+ 85 Everything I command you that you shall be careful to do it. You shall neither add to it, nor subtract from it. Devarim 13:1


+ 100 If there will arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of a dream, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, Devarim 13:2


+ 91 and the sign or the wonder of which he spoke to you happens, and he says, "Let us go after other gods which you have not known, and let us worship them," Devarim 13:3


+ 117 you shall not heed the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of a dream; for the Lord, your God, is testing you, to know whether you really love the Lord, your God, with all your heart and with all your soul. Devarim 13:4


+ 92 You shall follow the Lord, your God, fear Him, keep His commandments, heed His voice, worship Him, and cleave to Him. Devarim 13:5


+ 107 And that prophet, or that dreamer of a dream shall be put to death; because he spoke falsehood about the Lord, your God Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and Who redeemed you from the house of bondage, to lead you astray from the way in which the Lord, your God, commanded you to go; so shall you clear away the evil from your midst. Devarim 13:6


+ 102 If your brother, the son of your mother, tempts you in secret or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your embrace, or your friend, who is as your own soul saying, "Let us go and worship other gods, which neither you, nor your forefathers have known." Devarim 13:7


+ 98 Of the gods of the peoples around you, whether near to you or far from you, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth; Devarim 13:8


+ 94 You shall not desire him, and you shall not hearken to him; neither shall you pity him, have mercy upon him, nor shield him. Devarim 13:9


+ 92 But you shall surely kill him, your hand shall be the first against him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. Devarim 13:10


+ 107 And you shall stone him with stones so that he dies, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Devarim 13:11


+ 105 And all Israel shall listen and fear, and they shall no longer do any evil such as this in your midst. Devarim 13:12


+ 97 If you hear in one of your cities which the Lord, your God, is giving you to dwell therein, saying, Devarim 13:13


+ 108 "Unfaithful men have gone forth from among you and have led the inhabitants of their city astray, saying, 'Let us go and worship other gods, which you have not known.' " Devarim 13:13


+ 93 Then you shall inquire, investigate, and ask thoroughly, and, behold, it is true, the matter is certain, that such abomination has been committed in your midst: Devarim 13:14


+ 102 You shall surely strike down the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroy it with all that is in it and its livestock, with the edge of the sword. Devarim 13:16


+ 113 And you shall collect all its spoil into the midst of its open square, and burn with fire the city and all its spoil, completely, for the Lord, your God; and it shall be a heap of destruction forever, never to be rebuilt. Devarim 13:17


+ 111 And nothing that is doomed to destruction shall cling to your hand, so that the Lord may return from His fierce wrath, and grant you compassion, and be compassionate with you, and multiply you, as He swore to your forefathers. Devarim 13:18


+ 94 For you shall hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, to keep all His commandments which I command you this day, to do that which is proper in the eyes of the Lord, your God. Devarim 13:19


+ 82 You shall not eat any abomination. Devarim 14:3


+ 87 And the white vulture, and the black vulture, and the kite after its species; Devarim 14:13


+ 104 And you shall eat before the Lord, your God, in the place He chooses to establish His Name therein, the tithes of your grain, your wine, and your oil, and the firstborn of your cattle and of your sheep, so that you may learn to fear the Lord, your God, all the days. Devarim 14:23


+ 106 From the foreigner you may exact; but what is yours with your brother, your hand shall release. Devarim 15:3


+ 104 And when you send him forth free from you, you shall not send him forth empty-handed. Devarim 15:13


+ 91 However, you shall not eat its blood; you shall pour it on the ground, as water. Devarim 15:23


+ 97 You shall not eat leaven with it; for seven days you shall eat with it matzoth, the bread of affliction, for in haste you went out of the land of Egypt, so that you shall remember the day when you went out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life. Devarim 16:3


+ 106 You shall make yourself the Festival of Sukkoth for seven days, when you gather in [the produce] from your threshing floor and your vat. Devarim 16:13

+ 88 And all the people shall listen and fear, and they shall no longer act wantonly. Devarim 17:13


+ 107 And this shall be the kohanim's due from the people, from those who perform a slaughter, be it an ox or a sheep, he shall give the kohen the foreleg, the jaws, and the maw. Devarim 18:3


+ 79 Be wholehearted with the Lord, your God. Devarim 18:13


+ 101 Prepare the road for yourself and divide into three parts the boundary of your land, which the Lord, your God, is giving you as an inheritance, and it will be for every killer to flee there. Devarim 19:3


+ 113 And you shall not pity him, but you shall abolish [the shedding of] the blood of the innocent from Israel, and it will be good for you. Devarim 19:13


+ 104 And he shall say to them, "Hear, O Israel, today you are approaching the battle against your enemies. Let your hearts not be faint; you shall not be afraid, and you shall not be alarmed, and you shall not be terrified because of them. Devarim 20:3

+ 110 But you shall not leave his body on the pole overnight. Rather, you shall bury him on that [same] day, for a hanging [human corpse] is a blasphemy of God, and you shall not defile your land, which the Lord, your God, is giving you as an inheritance. Devarim 21:23

+ 86 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter the assembly of the Lord; even the tenth generation shall never enter the assembly of the Lord. Devarim 23:4


+ 120 Because they did not greet you with bread and water on the way, when you left Egypt, and because he [the people of Moab] hired Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor in Aram Naharaim against you, to curse you. Devarim 23:5


+ 97 But the Lord, your God, did not want to listen to Balaam. So the Lord, your God, transformed the curse into a blessing for you, because the Lord, your God, loves you. Devarim 23:6

+ 108 And the Lord said to Moses, Behold, your days are approaching for you to die. Call Joshua and stand in the Tent of Meeting, and I will inspire him. So Moses and Joshua went, and stood in the Tent of Meeting. Devarim 31:14


+ 80 And the Lord appeared in the Tent, in a pillar of cloud. The pillar of cloud stood at the entrance to the Tent. Devarim 31:15


+ 118 And the Lord said to Moses: Behold, you are about to lie with your forefathers, and this nation will rise up and stray after the deities of the nations of the land, into which they are coming. And they will forsake Me and violate My covenant which I made with them. Devarim 31:16


+ 101 And My fury will rage against them on that day, and I will abandon them and hide My face from them, and they will be consumed, and many evils and troubles will befall them, and they will say on that day, Is it not because our God is no longer among us, that these evils have befallen us? Devarim 31:17


+ 80 And I will hide My face on that day, because of all the evil they have committed, when they turned to other deities. Devarim 31:18


+ 93 And now, write for yourselves this song, and teach it to the Children of Israel. Place it into their mouths, in order that this song will be for Me as a witness for the children of Israel. Devarim 31:19


+ 91 When I bring them to the land which I have sworn to their forefathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey, they will eat and be satisfied, and live on the fat of the land. Then, they will turn to other deities and serve them, provoking Me and violating My covenant. Devarim 31:20


+ 93 And it will be, when they will encounter many evils and troubles, this song will bear witness against them, for it will not be forgotten from the mouth of their offspring. For I know their inclination what they [are planning] to do today, even before I bring them in to the land which I have sworn to give them." Devarim 31:21


+ 79 And Moses wrote this song on that day, and taught it to the children of Israel. Devarim 31:22


+ 100 And He commanded Joshua the son of Nun, and said: "Be strong and courageous! For you shall bring the children of Israel to the land that I have sworn to them, and I will be with you." Devarim 31:23


+ 86 And it was, when Moses finished writing the words of this Torah in a scroll, until their very completion, Devarim 31:24


+ 76 That Moses commanded the Levites, who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord, saying: Devarim 31:25


+ 77 "Take this Torah scroll and place it along side the ark of covenant of the Lord, your God, and it will be there as a witness. Devarim 31:26


+ 85 For I know your rebellious spirit and your stubbornness. Even while I am alive with you today you are rebelling against the Lord, and surely after my death! Devarim 31:27


+ 90 Assemble to me all the elders of your tribes and your officers, and I will speak these words into their ears, and I will call upon the heaven and the earth as witnesses against them. Devarim 31:28


+ 99 For I know that after my death, you will surely become corrupted, and deviate from the way which I had commanded you. Consequently, the evil will befall you at the end of days, because you did evil in the eyes of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands. Devarim 31:29


+ 110 Then, Moses spoke into the ears of the entire assembly of Israel the words of the following song, until their completion. Devarim 31:30


+ 80 Listen, O heavens, and I will speak! And let the earth hear the words of my mouth! Devarim 32:1


+ 104 My lesson will drip like rain; my word will flow like dew; like storm winds on vegetation and like raindrops on grass. Devarim 32:2


+ 66 When I call out the name of the Lord, ascribe greatness to our God. Devarim 32:3


+ 95 The deeds of the Mighty Rock are perfect, for all His ways are just; a faithful God, without injustice He is righteous and upright. Devarim 32:4


+ 81 Destruction is not His; it is His children's defect you crooked and twisted generation. Devarim 32:5


+ 85 Is this how you repay the Lord, you disgraceful, unwise people?! Is He not your Father, your Master? He has made you and established you. Devarim 32:6


+ 75 Remember the days of old; reflect upon the years of other generations. Ask your father, and he will tell you; your elders, and they will inform you. Devarim 32:7


+ 105 When the Most High gave nations their lot, when He separated the sons of man, He set up the boundaries of peoples according to the number of the children of Israel. Devarim 32:8


+ 116 Because the Lord's portion is His people Jacob, the lot of His inheritance. Devarim 32:9


+ 91 He found them in a desert land, and in a desolate, howling wasteland. He encompassed them and bestowed understanding upon them; He protected them as the pupil of His eye. Devarim 32:10


+ 93 As an eagle awakens its nest, hovering over its fledglings, it spreads its wings, taking them and carrying them on its pinions. Devarim 32:11


+ 86 So the Lord guided them alone, and there was no alien deity with Him. Devarim 32:12


+ 92 He made them ride upon the high places of the earth, that they would eat the produce of the field. He let them suck honey from a rock, and oil from the mighty part of the crag. Devarim 32:13


+ 126 The cream of cattle and the milk of sheep, with the fat of lambs and rams of Bashan and he goats, with kidneys of wheat, and it the congregation of Israel would drink the blood of grapes which was as the finest wine. Devarim 32:14


+ 100 And Jeshurun became fat and rebelled; you grew fat, thick and rotund; [Israel] forsook the God Who made them, and spurned the [Mighty] Rock of their salvation. Devarim 32:15


+ 80 They provoked His zeal with alien worship; they made Him angry with abominations deeds. Devarim 32:16


+ 99 They sacrificed to demons, which have no power, deities they did not know, new things that only recently came, which your forefathers did not fear. Devarim 32:17


+ 73 You forgot the Mighty Rock Who bore you; you forgot the God Who delivered you. Devarim 32:18


+ 71 And the Lord saw this and became angry, provoked by His sons and daughters. Devarim 32:19


+ 98 And He said, "I will hide My face from them. I will see what their end will be, for they are a generation of changes; they are not recognizable as My children whom I have reared. Devarim 32:20


+ 87 They have provoked My jealousy with a non god, provoked My anger with their vanities. Thus, I will provoke their jealousy with a non people, provoke their anger with a foolish nation. Devarim 32:21


+ 86 For a fire blazed in My wrath, and burned to the lowest depths. It consumed the land and its produce, setting aflame the foundations of mountains. Devarim 32:22


+ 70 I will link evils upon them. I will use up My arrows on them. Devarim 32:23


+ 87 They will sprout hair from famine, attacked by demons, excised by Meriri. I will incite the teeth of livestock upon them, with the venom of creatures that slither in the dust. Devarim 32:24


+ 104 From outside, the sword will bereave, and terror from within; young men and maidens, suckling babes with venerable elders. Devarim 32:25


+ 73 I said that I would make an end of them, eradicate their remembrance from mankind. Devarim 32:26


+ 97 Were it not that the enemy's wrath was heaped up, lest their adversaries distort; lest they claim, "Our hand was triumphant! The Lord did none of this!" Devarim 32:27


+ 79 For they are a nation devoid of counsel, and they have no understanding. Devarim 32:28


+ 73 If they were wise, they would understand this; they would reflect upon their fate. Devarim 32:29


+ 93 How can one person pursue a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Mighty Rock has sold them out, and the Lord has given them over? Devarim 32:30


+ 84 For their rock is not like our Mighty Rock. Nevertheless, our enemies sit in judgment. Devarim 32:31


+ 85 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the field of Gomorrah; their grapes are grapes of rosh, and they have bitter clusters. Devarim 32:32


+ 69 Their wine is the bitterness of serpents, and the bitterness of the ruthless cobras. Devarim 32:33


+ 74 Is it not stored up with Me, sealed up in My treasuries? Devarim 32:34


+ 99 Vengeance is poised with Me, and it will pay at the time their foot stumbles. For the appointed day of their reckoning is near, and what is destined for them hastens. Devarim 32:35


+ 93 When the Lord will judge His people, and will reconsider His servants, when He sees that the power is increasing, and none is controlled or strengthened. Devarim 32:36


+ 77 Then He will say, "Where is their deity, the rock in which they trusted, Devarim 32:37


+ 87 Who ate the fat of their sacrifices and drank the wine of their libations? Let them arise and help you! Let them be your shelter! Devarim 32:38


+ 90 See now that it is I! I am the One, and there is no god like Me! I cause death and grant life. I strike, but I heal, and no one can rescue from My Hand! Devarim 32:39


+ 71 For I raise up My hand to heaven, and say, 'As I live forever.' Devarim 32:40


+ 87 When I sharpen the blade of My sword, and My hand grasps judgment, I will bring vengeance upon My adversaries and repay those who hate Me. Devarim 32:41


+ 104 I will intoxicate My arrows with blood, and My sword will consume flesh, from the blood of the slain and the captives, from the first breach of the enemy.' Devarim 32:42


+ 98 Sing out praise, O you nations, for His people! For He will avenge the blood of His servants, inflict revenge upon His adversaries, and appease His land [and] His people. Devarim 32:43


+ 100 And Moses came and spoke all the words of this song into the ears of the people he and Hoshea the son of Nun. Devarim 32:44


+ 113 And Moses finished speaking all these words to all Israel. Devarim 32:45


+ 92 And he said to them, Set your hearts to all of the words which I bear witness for you this day, so that you may command your children to observe to do all the words of this Torah. Devarim 32:46


+ 88 For it is not an empty thing for you, for it is your life, and through this thing, you will lengthen your days upon the land to which you are crossing over the Jordan, to possess it." Devarim 32:47


+ 82 And the Lord spoke to Moses on that very day, saying, Devarim 32:48


+ 109 Go up this Mount Avarim to Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is facing Jericho, and see the Land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel as a possession, Devarim 32:49


+ 92 And die on the mountain upon which you are climbing and be gathered to your people, just as your brother Aaron died on Mount Hor and was gathered to his people. Devarim 32:50


+ 88 Because you betrayed Me in the midst of the children of Israel at the waters of Merivath Kadesh, in the desert of Zin, and because you did not sanctify Me in the midst of the children of Israel. Devarim 32:51


+ 88 For from afar, you will see the land, but you will not come there, to the land I am giving the children of Israel. Devarim 32:52


+ 100 And this is the blessing with which Moses, the man of God, blessed the children of Israel just before his death. Devarim 33:1


+ 89 He said: "The Lord came from Sinai and shone forth from Seir to them; He appeared from Mount Paran and came with some of the holy myriads; from His right hand was a fiery Law for them. Devarim 33:2


+ 108 Indeed, You showed love for peoples; all his holy ones are in Your hand, for they let themselves be centered at Your feet, bearing Your utterances. Devarim 33:3


+ 107 The Torah that Moses commanded us is a legacy for the congregation of Jacob. Devarim 33:4


+ 106 And He was King in Jeshurun, whenever the sum total of the people were gathered, and the tribes of Israel were together, Devarim 33:5


+ 64 May Reuben live and not die, and may his people be counted in the number. Devarim 33:6


+ 108 May this also be for Judah." And he [Moses] said, "O Lord, hearken to Judah's voice and bring him to his people; may his hands do battle for him, and may You be a help against his adversaries." Devarim 33:7


+ 86 And of Levi he said: "Your Tummim and Urim belong to Your pious man, whom You tested at Massah and whom You tried at the waters of Meribah, Devarim 33:8


+ 86 Who said of his father and his mother, 'I do not see him'; neither did he recognize his brothers, nor did he know his children, for they observed Your word and kept Your covenant. Devarim 33:9


+ 115 They shall teach Your ordinances to Jacob, and Your Torah to Israel; they shall place incense before You, and burnt offerings upon Your altar. Devarim 33:10


+ 98 May the Lord bless his army and favorably accept the work of his hands; strike the loins of those who rise up against him and his enemies, so that they will not recover. Devarim 33:11


+ 100 And of Benjamin he said, The Lord's beloved one shall dwell securely beside Him; He protects him all day long, and He dwells between his shoulders. Devarim 33:12


+ 82 And of Joseph he said: His land shall be blessed by the Lord, with the sweetness of the heavens with dew, and with the deep that lies below, Devarim 33:13


+ 62 And with the sweetness of the produce of the sun, and with the sweetness of the moon's yield, Devarim 33:14


+ 82 And with the crops of early mountains, and with the sweetness of perennial hills, Devarim 33:15


+ 90 And with the sweetness of the land and its fullness, and through the contentment of the One Who dwells in the thornbush. May it come upon Joseph's head and upon the crown of the one separated from his brothers. Devarim 33:16


+ 94 To his firstborn ox is given glory. His horns are the horns of a re'em. With them, he will gore peoples together throughout all the ends of the earth these are the myriads of Ephraim, and these are the thousands of Manasseh. Devarim 33:17


+ 77 And to Zebulun he said: Rejoice, Zebulun, in your departure, and Issachar, in your tents. Devarim 33:18


+ 91 They will call peoples to the mountain; there, they will offer up righteous sacrifices. For they will be nourished by the abundance of the seas, and by the treasures hidden in the sand. Devarim 33:19


+ 92 And of Gad he said: Blessed is He Who grants expanse to Gad; he dwells like a lion, tearing the arm of his prey, together with the head. Devarim 33:20


+ 106 He saw the first portion for himself, because there, the portion of the lawgiver is hidden. And he came at the head of the people; he did what is righteous for the Lord, and what is lawful with Israel. Devarim 33:21


+ 79 And of Dan he said: Dan is a young lion, streaming from Bashan. Devarim 33:22


+ 77 And of Naftali he said, Naftali is favorably satisfied and full of the Lord's blessing. Possess the Sea and the south. Devarim 33:23


+ 72 And of Asher he said: "May Asher be blessed with sons. He will be pleasing to his brothers, and immerse his foot in oil. Devarim 33:24


+ 70 Your locks are iron and copper, and the days of your old age will be like the days of your youth. Devarim 33:25


+ 87 Jeshurun, there is none like God; He Who rides the heavens is at your assistance, and with His majesty, He rides the skies, Devarim 33:26


+ 102 Which are the abode for the God Who precedes all, and below, are the mighty ones of the world. He expelled the enemy from before you, and said, 'Destroy!' Devarim 33:27


+ 113 And Israel dwelled safely and alone as Jacob blessed them, in a land of grain and wine; also, their heavens will drip dew. Devarim 33:28


+ 115 Fortunate are you, O Israel! Who is like you, O people whose salvation is through the Lord, the Shield Who helps you, your majestic Sword! Your enemies will lie to you, but you will tread upon their heights." Devarim 33:29


+ 101 And Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, [to the] top of the summit facing Jericho. And the Lord showed him all the Land: The Gilead until Dan, Devarim 34:1


+ 78 And all [the land of] Naftali, and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, until the western sea, Devarim 34:2


+ 78 And the south, and the plain, the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, until Zoar. Devarim 34:3


+ 127 And the Lord said to him, "This is the Land I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, 'I will give it to your offspring.' I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not cross over there." Devarim 34:4


+ 91 And Moses, the servant of the Lord, died there, in the land of Moab, by the mouth of the Lord. Devarim 34:5


+ 81 And He buried him in the valley, in the land of Moab, opposite Beth Pe'or. And no person knows the place of his burial, unto this day. Devarim 34:6


+ 93 Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. His eye had not dimmed, nor had he lost his natural freshness. Devarim 34:7


+ 109 And the sons of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab for thirty days, and the days of weeping over the mourning for Moses came to an end. Devarim 34:8


+ 122 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, because Moses had laid his hands upon him. And the children of Israel obeyed him, and they did as the Lord had commanded Moses. Devarim 34:9


+ 99 And there was no other prophet who arose in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, Devarim 34:10


+ 103 As manifested by all the signs and wonders, which the Lord had sent him to perform in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and all his servants, and to all his land, Devarim 34:11


+ 114 And all the strong hand, and all the great awe, which Moses performed before the eyes of all Israel. Devarim 34:12


+ 102 I typically wake up at 5:30, and that's my time. I read newspapers, have coffee. Ivanka Trump


+ 125 So we really need jobs now. We have to take jobs away from other countries because other countries are taking our jobs. There is practically not a country that does business with the United States that isn't making - let's call it a very big profit. I mean China is going to make $300 billion on us at least this year. Donald Trump


+ 83 Never have anything to do with an unlucky place, or an unlucky man. I have seen many clever men, very clever men, who had not shoes to their feet. I never act with them. Their advice sounds very well, but they cannot get on themselves; and if they cannot do good to themselves, how can they do good to me? Victor Rothschild, 3rd Baron Rothschild


+ 115 The Boer War occurred 37 years ago. Boer means farmer. Many criticized a great power like Britain for trying to wipe out the Boers. Upon making inquiry, I found all the gold and diamond mines of South Africa were owned by Jews; that Rothschild controlled gold; Samuels controlled silver, Baum controlled other mining, and Moses controlled base metals. Anything these people touch they inevitably pollute. Henry Hamilton Beamish

+ 337 Just for fun I recently asked Erin, “Now that the kids are in summer school, don’t you think it’s about time you went out and got yourself a job?  I hate seeing you wallow in unemployment for so long.” She smiled and said, “Wow.  I have been unemployed a really long time.  That’s weird…  I like it!”

Neither of us have had jobs since the ’90s (my only job was in 1992), so we’ve been self-employed for quite a while.  In our household it’s a running joke for one of us to say to the other, “Maybe you should get a job, derelict!” It’s like the scene in The Three Stooges where Moe tells Curly to get a job, and Curly backs away, saying, “No, please… not that!  Anything but that!” It’s funny that when people reach a certain age, such as after graduating college, they assume it’s time to go out and get a job.  But like many things the masses do, just because everyone does it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea.  In fact, if you’re reasonably intelligent, getting a job is one of the worst things you can do to support yourself.  There are far better ways to make a living than selling yourself into indentured servitude.

Here are some reasons you should do everything in your power to avoid getting a job:

1. Income for dummies.

Getting a job and trading your time for money may seem like a good idea.  There’s only one problem with it.  It’s stupid!  It’s the stupidest way you can possibly generate income!  This is truly income for dummies.

Why is getting a job so dumb?  Because you only get paid when you’re working.  Don’t you see a problem with that, or have you been so thoroughly brainwashed into thinking it’s reasonable and intelligent to only earn income when you’re working?  Have you never considered that it might be better to be paid even when you’re not working?  Who taught you that you could only earn income while working?  Some other brainwashed employee perhaps?

Don’t you think your life would be much easier if you got paid while you were eating, sleeping, and playing with the kids too?  Why not get paid 24/7?  Get paid whether you work or not.  Don’t your plants grow even when you aren’t tending to them?  Why not your bank account? Who cares how many hours you work?  Only a handful of people on this entire planet care how much time you spend at the office.  Most of us won’t even notice whether you work 6 hours a week or 60.  But if you have something of value to provide that matters to us, a number of us will be happy to pull out our wallets and pay you for it.  We don’t care about your time — we only care enough to pay for the value we receive.  Do you really care how long it took me to write this article?  Would you pay me twice as much if it took me 6 hours vs. only 3?

Non-dummies often start out on the traditional income for dummies path.  So don’t feel bad if you’re just now realizing you’ve been suckered.  Non-dummies eventually realize that trading time for money is indeed extremely dumb and that there must be a better way.  And of course there is a better way.  The key is to de-couple your value from your time. Smart people build systems that generate income 24/7, especially passive income.  This can include starting a business, building a web site, becoming an investor, or generating royalty income from creative work.  The system delivers the ongoing value to people and generates income from it, and once it’s in motion, it runs continuously whether you tend to it or not.  From that moment on, the bulk of your time can be invested in increasing your income (by refining your system or spawning new ones) instead of merely maintaining your income.

This web site is an example of such a system.  At the time of this writing, it generates about $9000 a month in income for me (update: $40,000 a month as of 10/31/06), and it isn’t my only income stream either.  I write each article just once (fixed time investment), and people can extract value from them year after year.  The web server delivers the value, and other systems (most of which I didn’t even build and don’t even understand) collect income and deposit it automatically into my bank account.  It’s not perfectly passive, but I love writing and would do it for free anyway.  But of course it cost me a lot of money to launch this business, right?  Um, yeah, $9 is an awful lot these days (to register the domain name).  Everything after that was profit. Sure it takes some upfront time and effort to design and implement your own income-generating systems.  But you don’t have to reinvent the wheel — feel free to use existing systems like ad networks and affiliate programs.  Once you get going, you won’t have to work so many hours to support yourself.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be out having dinner with your spouse, knowing that while you’re eating, you’re earning money?  If you want to keep working long hours because you enjoy it, go right ahead.  If you want to sit around doing nothing, feel free.  As long as your system continues delivering value to others, you’ll keep getting paid whether you’re working or not.

Your local bookstore is filled with books containing workable systems others have already designed, tested, and debugged.  Nobody is born knowing how to start a business or generate investment income, but you can easily learn it.  How long it takes you to figure it out is irrelevant because the time is going to pass anyway.  You might as well emerge at some future point as the owner of income-generating systems as opposed to a lifelong wage slave.  This isn’t all or nothing.  If your system only generates a few hundred dollars a month, that’s a significant step in the right direction.

2. Limited experience.

You might think it’s important to get a job to gain experience.  But that’s like saying you should play golf to get experience playing golf.  You gain experience from living, regardless of whether you have a job or not.  A job only gives you experience at that job, but you gain “experience” doing just about anything, so that’s no real benefit at all.  Sit around doing nothing for a couple years, and you can call yourself an experienced meditator, philosopher, or politician.

The problem with getting experience from a job is that you usually just repeat the same limited experience over and over.  You learn a lot in the beginning and then stagnate.  This forces you to miss other experiences that would be much more valuable.  And if your limited skill set ever becomes obsolete, then your experience won’t be worth squat.  In fact, ask yourself what the experience you’re gaining right now will be worth in 20-30 years.  Will your job even exist then?

Consider this.  Which experience would you rather gain?  The knowledge of how to do a specific job really well — one that you can only monetize by trading your time for money — or the knowledge of how to enjoy financial abundance for the rest of your life without ever needing a job again?  Now I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have the latter experience.  That seems a lot more useful in the real world, wouldn’t you say?

3. Lifelong domestication.

Getting a job is like enrolling in a human domestication program.  You learn how to be a good pet.

Look around you.  Really look.  What do you see?  Are these the surroundings of a free human being?  Or are you living in a cage for unconscious animals?  Have you fallen in love with the color beige? How’s your obedience training coming along?  Does your master reward your good behavior?  Do you get disciplined if you fail to obey your master’s commands?

Is there any spark of free will left inside you?  Or has your conditioning made you a pet for life? Humans are not meant to be raised in cages.  You poor thing…

4. Too many mouths to feed.

Employee income is the most heavily taxed there is.  In the USA you can expect that about half your salary will go to taxes.  The tax system is designed to disguise how much you’re really giving up because some of those taxes are paid by your employer, and some are deducted from your paycheck.  But you can bet that from your employer’s perspective, all of those taxes are considered part of your pay, as well as any other compensation you receive such as benefits.  Even the rent for the office space you consume is considered, so you must generate that much more value to cover it.  You might feel supported by your corporate environment, but keep in mind that you’re the one paying for it. Another chunk of your income goes to owners and investors.  That’s a lot of mouths to feed. It isn’t hard to understand why employees pay the most in taxes relative to their income.  After all, who has more control over the tax system?  Business owners and investors or employees? You only get paid a fraction of the real value you generate.  Your real salary may be more than triple what you’re paid, but most of that money you’ll never see.  It goes straight into other people’s pockets. What a generous person you are!

5. Way too risky.

Many employees believe getting a job is the safest and most secure way to support themselves. Morons.

Social conditioning is amazing.  It’s so good it can even make people believe the exact opposite of the truth. Does putting yourself in a position where someone else can turn off all your income just by saying two words (“You’re fired”) sound like a safe and secure situation to you?  Does having only one income stream honestly sound more secure than having 10?

The idea that a job is the most secure way to generate income is just silly.  You can’t have security if you don’t have control, and employees have the least control of anyone.  If you’re an employee, then your real job title should be professional gambler.

6. Having an evil bovine master.

When you run into an idiot in the entrepreneurial world, you can turn around and head the other way.  When you run into an idiot in the corporate world, you have to turn around and say, “Sorry, boss.”

Did you know that the word boss comes from the Dutch word baas, which historically means master?  Another meaning of the word boss is “a cow or bovine.”  And in many video games, the boss is the evil dude that you have to kill at the end of a level.

So if your boss is really your evil bovine master, then what does that make you?  Nothing but a turd in the herd. Who’s your daddy?

7. Begging for money.

When you want to increase your income, do you have to sit up and beg your master for more money?  Does it feel good to be thrown some extra Scooby Snacks now and then?

Or are you free to decide how much you get paid without needing anyone’s permission but your own?

If you have a business and one customer says “no” to you, you simply say “next.”

8. An inbred social life.

Many people treat their jobs as their primary social outlet.  They hang out with the same people working in the same field.  Such incestuous relations are social dead ends.  An exciting day includes deep conversations about the company’s switch from Sparkletts to Arrowhead, the delay of Microsoft’s latest operating system, and the unexpected delivery of more Bic pens.  Consider what it would be like to go outside and talk to strangers.  Ooooh… scary!  Better stay inside where it’s safe.

If one of your co-slaves gets sold to another master, do you lose a friend?  If you work in a male-dominated field, does that mean you never get to talk to women above the rank of receptionist?  Why not decide for yourself whom to socialize with instead of letting your master decide for you?  Believe it or not, there are locations on this planet where free people congregate.  Just be wary of those jobless folk — they’re a crazy bunch!

9. Loss of freedom.

It takes a lot of effort to tame a human being into an employee.  The first thing you have to do is break the human’s independent will.  A good way to do this is to give them a weighty policy manual filled with nonsensical rules and regulations.  This leads the new employee to become more obedient, fearing that s/he could be disciplined at any minute for something incomprehensible.  Thus, the employee will likely conclude it’s safest to simply obey the master’s commands without question.  Stir in some office politics for good measure, and we’ve got a freshly minted mind slave. As part of their obedience training, employees must be taught how to dress, talk, move, and so on.  We can’t very well have employees thinking for themselves, now can we?  That would ruin everything. God forbid you should put a plant on your desk when it’s against the company policy.  Oh no, it’s the end of the world!  Cindy has a plant on her desk!  Summon the enforcers!  Send Cindy back for another round of sterility training!

Free human beings think such rules and regulations are silly of course.  The only policy they need is:  “Be smart.  Be nice.  Do what you love.  Have fun.”

10. Becoming a coward.

Have you noticed that employed people have an almost endless capacity to whine about problems at their companies?  But they don’t really want solutions — they just want to vent and make excuses why it’s all someone else’s fault.  It’s as if getting a job somehow drains all the free will out of people and turns them into spineless cowards.  If you can’t call your boss a jerk now and then without fear of getting fired, you’re no longer free.  You’ve become your master’s property.

When you work around cowards all day long, don’t you think it’s going to rub off on you?  Of course it will.  It’s only a matter of time before you sacrifice the noblest parts of your humanity on the altar of fear:  first courage… then honesty… then honor and integrity… and finally your independent will.  You sold your humanity for nothing but an illusion.  And now your greatest fear is discovering the truth of what you’ve become.

I don’t care how badly you’ve been beaten down.  It is never too late to regain your courage.  Never!

Still want a job?

If you’re currently a well-conditioned, well-behaved employee, your most likely reaction to the above will be defensiveness.  It’s all part of the conditioning.  But consider that if the above didn’t have a grain of truth to it, you wouldn’t have an emotional reaction at all.  This is only a reminder of what you already know.  You can deny your cage all you want, but the cage is still there.  Perhaps this all happened so gradually that you never noticed it until now… like a lobster enjoying a nice warm bath. If any of this makes you mad, that’s a step in the right direction.  Anger is a higher level of consciousness than apathy, so it’s a lot better than being numb all the time.  Any emotion — even confusion — is better than apathy.  If you work through your feelings instead of repressing them, you’ll soon emerge on the doorstep of courage.  And when that happens, you’ll have the will to actually do something about your situation and start living like the powerful human being you were meant to be instead of the domesticated pet you’ve been trained to be.

Happily jobless

What’s the alternative to getting a job?  The alternative is to remain happily jobless for life and to generate income through other means.  Realize that you earn income by providing value — not time — so find a way to provide your best value to others, and charge a fair price for it.  One of the simplest and most accessible ways is to start your own business.  Whatever work you’d otherwise do via employment, find a way to provide that same value directly to those who will benefit most from it.  It takes a bit more time to get going, but your freedom is easily worth the initial investment of time and energy.  Then you can buy your own Scooby Snacks for a change. And of course everything you learn along the way, you can share with others to generate even more value.  So even your mistakes can be monetized.

One of the greatest fears you’ll confront is that you may not have any real value to offer others.  Maybe being an employee and getting paid by the hour is the best you can do.  Maybe you just aren’t worth that much.  That line of thinking is all just part of your conditioning.  It’s absolute nonsense.  As you begin to dump such brainwashing, you’ll soon recognize that you have the ability to provide enormous value to others and that people will gladly pay you for it.  There’s only one thing that prevents you from seeing this truth — fear.

All you really need is the courage to be yourself.  Your real value is rooted in who you are, not what you do.  The only thing you need actually do is express your real self to the world.  You’ve been told all sort of lies as to why you can’t do that.  But you’ll never know true happiness and fulfillment until you summon the courage to do it anyway.

The next time someone says to you, “Get a job,” I suggest you reply as Curly did:  “No, please… not that!  Anything but that!”  Then poke him right in the eyes.

You already know deep down that getting a job isn’t what you want.  So don’t let anyone try to tell you otherwise.  Learn to trust your inner wisdom, even if the whole world says you’re wrong and foolish for doing so.  Years from now you’ll look back and realize it was one of the best decisions you ever made.

Final thoughts

While I wouldn’t recommend starting an online business for everyone, for many people it’s one of the best ways to generate income without a job. It has certainly worked disgustingly well for me.

+ 210 Sex and Aural Energy

Pay attention to whom you share your intimate energy with. Intimacy at this level intertwines your aural energy with the aural energy of the other person. These powerful connections, regardless of how insignificant you think they are, leave spiritual debris, particularly within people who do not practice any type of cleansing, physical, emotional or otherwise. The more you interact intimately with someone, the deeper the connection and the more of their aura is intertwined with yours. Imagine the confused aura of someone who sleeps with multiple people and carries around these multiple energies? What they may not realize is that others can feel that energy which can repel positive energy and attract negative energy into your life.

“I always say, never sleep with someone you wouldn’t want to be” - Lisa Chase Patterson We are all physical beings, but we are also so much more than that, including ‘energetic beings’. When you get intimate with anyone you merge with their energy. It doesn’t matter if it is OBE (astral) sex, physical sex, or oral sex — anytime you are intimate with another person (or people) you absorb some of their energy and they absorb some of your energy.

If you have sex with positive, loving, uplifting people – that wonderful energy is absorbed and uplifts you. If you have sex with negative, pessimistic, unstable, depressive people – that energy will have you crashing down and uninterested in day-to-day life. (Among other ways. We are all unique after all) Keep in mind that if this person sleeps with a variety of people, they absorb their energy. A married man or woman has absorbed their spouses energy and will mix it with your energy if you are the other man or woman. It’s vice versa.

So the next time you jump into bed with someone or want to hook up for OBE sex – keep in mind that unless they cleanse their energy on a regular basis, you will be getting intimate with whomever they have been intimate with.

Here is some information I have found about Aura Cleansing and Healing :

As we accumulate unwanted energies in daily life, regular aura cleansing supports health and well-being. Like psychic dust bunnies, we go around collecting debris on our aura, until we finally do something to cleanse it… It is the same with personal hygiene. If you do not bathe, your body will become dirtier and dirtier. Gradually the smell becomes unbearable. Eventually, your body even becomes a breeding ground for disease and bacteria. If you do not cleanse your aura, your spiritual energy system will also become ‘dirtier and dirtier’. Eventually you become unpleasant for others to be around (though they may not consciously understand why). Your energy system then begins to attract lower vibrations which are also unhealthy for you and others.

In modern culture, we expect people to take care of their personal hygiene by bathing regularly, if not daily. But we are not yet so spiritually evolved!

Cleansing your Aura

Just like washing your hands cleans one part of your body and washing your face takes care of another… different approaches to aura cleansing will support you in clearing different aspects of your energy system. Some aura clearing approaches are more lightweight–in terms of personal hygiene– like changing your clothes, or putting on deodorant. They are still useful, but they can’t replace bathing! Other methods of aura cleansing go much deeper–equivalent to having a good scrub-down, or going for a detoxifying spa treatment.

Bathing with Epsom Salts

Water helps wash away dirt, both physically and energetically. Adding Epsom Salts to your bath stimulates the flow of your own energy and also draws minor psychic debris out of your aura.

Swimming

Submerging yourself in water helps cleanse your aura. As ocean water contains salt and minerals, it is especially useful for drawing minor psychic debris out of your aura.

Sunlight

Gentle exposure to sunlight stimulates the flow of your own energy. Some lower vibrations cannot exist with exposure to bright light.

FOUR MOST POWERFUL APPROACHES TO AURA CLEANSING :

1. Aura Meditation

Even basic meditation helps you relax and release. Aura meditation works directly with releasing unwanted energies through grounding, clearing your aura, energy channels and chakras. One of the most powerful ways to cleanse and care for your aura is energy-based aura meditation.

2. Aura Healings

In an aura healing, the healer supports you in cleansing unwanted energies out of your system. The healer assists you in grounding out psychic debris, releasing blocks and helps you get your own energy flowing. If you’d like to find out more about Aura Healing, I highly recommend you research Reiki. If you’d like to experience it yourself, I recommend you look for a Reiki healer in your area)

3. Aura Readings

Often we confuse other people’s energy with our own energy. When we mistake foreign energy for our own, we do not want to release it. We hold on to it because we think it is us! In a clairvoyant aura reading, a reader can help you identify your own energy and discern foreign energy. When you recognize an energy is not you, it is much easier to release.

4. Feeling your Emotions

When your emotional energy is blocked, it creates congestion and back-up throughout your spiritual energy system. This makes it easy to get stuck with unwanted energies. Allowing yourself to feel hidden emotions creates a release of energy. This movement and flow supports you in cleansing psychic debris.

Other Options for Aura Cleansing :

Wind

Standing with an open body posture in a strong wind supports you in releasing unwanted energies. As sea breezes contain moisture, salt and minerals, ocean winds are especially beneficial for aura cleansing.

Gardening or Being in Nature

Through gardening and being in Nature, you come in direct contact with the earth. This helps you get grounded and release unwanted energies out of your system.

Creativity

Creating something you’re enthusiastic about gives you a ‘creative high’. These surges of creative energy stimulate the flow of your own energy and support you in releasing blocks and unwanted energies.

+ 198 10 Tips - High Vibrations

All your thoughts and feelings are energy, and energy is vibration. Learn to Raise those Vibrations and watch your life change dramatically.

1. Find something beautiful and appreciate it. Beauty is all around us, from the morning dew to the evening stars and everything in between. Most go through life not noticing all the beautiful things that are around them, and yes it's every where, so take the time to notice them, and appreciate them when you see it. Whether it's the scent of a flower or the way rain ripples in puddles of water, appreciate the beauty life has to offer.

2. Make a list of all that you are grateful for. Making a gratitude list shifts your vibrations from focusing on what you do not have to what is already abundant in your life. There is more to be grateful for than you could possibly imagine. You can start with “I'm Alive!” and expand from there. Gratitude is the Attitude.

3. Meditate. Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes and breath in and out. Too often we rush through our days with a scattered brain leaving us in a state of anxiety and stress, Meditation helps to calm your spirit down and put you in a peaceful state of mind. 10 Minuets of meditation a day can change your life forever.

4. Do something for someone else. Giving to someone else shifts your thinking from “I don't have enough, to I have more than enough to give to others.” Abundance is a high vibration.

5. Stop complaining and gossiping. Complaining and Gossip puts you in a very low vibration. Ask yourself “Are the things you are talking about bringing you more of what you want?” if not then, Stop complaining, and start finding ways to rejoice.

6. Move. Exercise. Get active. Vibration requires movement, the more you move the better your vibrations move. So Get Active! Dance! The happier you feel, the more you will draw happy experiences to yourself because you are operating at a different frequency.

7. Realize that you have more control over your life than you thought. You are not a victim to circumstance, past, family upbringing, trauma, or anything else. You can change your life in an instant. Just realize this. In many wisdom traditions this is called “total responsibility.” No one is responsible for how you feel right now but you. It isn't a curse. It's a blessing because it gives you your power back.

8. Breathe. Just sit and try to make your breath longer, fuller, and more relaxed. It has a direct affect on your nervous system and helps to calm you down. A calm vibration is a high vibration.

9. Do Something You're Afraid Of Fear holds us back from being in a state of love and happiness, and facing those fears opens you up to a greater world of possibilities. Fear of Heights? Go skydiving. Scared of public speaking, say a poem at an open mic. You'll begin to realize your fear was worse then the actual problem, and a sense of relief will wash over you.

10. Have a Meaningful Conversation with a Friend Rather than gossip or complaining, talk about you ideas. What do you have planned for yourself? what do you think is the nature of reality? Are we spiritual beings having a human experience? Talking about these things with someone helps to raise both your vibrations by thinking big. If you don't have someone to talk to about these kinds of things with, there's a community of higher minded individuals right here. Leave a comment down below and let's chat!

+ 164 The Science of The Heart: Our Hearts Actually Have It’s Own Intelligence

We all know the difference between good vibes and bad vibes, but what is really happening at a scientific level when we talk about “vibes”? Or what about when we know someone is a bad person and can feel it in our gut, only to later find out that they are abusive and manipulative?

While there is an energetic and spiritual side to this question, there is also a hard scientific explanation of what is occurring when we tap into the vibes of other people. With the development of new scientific instruments, intuition is now something being studied using the scientific method.

The electromagnetic field of the heart

The heart generates a powerful and measurable electromagnetic field. Magnetocardiography is the science of measure the field that is produced by the electrical activity within the heart.

It’s mainstream scientific knowledge that the resonant frequencies of the field of your heart interacts with the fields of others around you. This effect is super strong within the first several feet in particular, but has been reported to be measured even at a distance of hundreds of meters.

Most of us know that the heart holds an energy system of its own and is one of the 7 main chakras within our energy field, and that our heart centers can interact with the heart centers of others. But it turns that it’s more than just an energy center for emotions, spiritual health, or even nervous system activity. The heart almost acts as a second mind with its own sense of awareness.

The Institute of Heartmath is an organization that focuses on the science of the heart and its relationship to the brain, nervous system, and the energy of the planet. Their studies have shown time and time again that the heart is a “little brain” and has an intuitive intelligence of it’s own independent of the mind.

“We observed that the heart was acting as though it had a mind of its own and was profoundly influencing the way we perceive and respond to the world. In essence, it appeared that the heart was affecting intelligence and awareness.”

The studies proving the heart’s intuitive intelligence

In this study, 26 participants were shown a series of 45 pictures. 30 of the pictures were neutral, and 15 of them were emotionally arousing. The participants were hooked up to an electrocardiogram to measure cardiac accelerations and decelerations, and an electroencephalogram to measure heart-beat evoked “potentials” on the surface on the skin. What the found was incredible.

A significantly greater heart rate deceleration occurred prior to future emotional stimuli compared to calm stimuli, and there was a significant difference in the refraction period within cardiac cycles for the emotional versus the calm. Both the heart and the brain were responding to the emotionally arousing photos prior to them even being seen by the person in linear time, but the heart was receiving the intuitive information prior to the brain.

The also found that there was a large difference in intuitive intelligence between males and females, and the females pick up on intuitive information more often and at a quicker rate than men did. So the spiritual concept of females being more in touch with their intuitive and emotions is not just New Age philosophy. It’s now scientifically proven that intuition is real, the heart plays a more important role in intuitive information than the brain, and that females are more heart-centered.

As they concluded in the original study found here:

Once the prestimulus information is received in the psychophysiologic systems, it appears to be processed in the same way as conventional sensory input. This study presents compelling evidence that the body’s perceptual apparatus is continuously scanning the future.

Why this is so amazing

When you are in a room with someone and are picking up on their “vibes”, the electromagnetic field of your heart is resonating with theirs. Physiologically, you are literally interacting with the energy field of that person in a way that is scientifically measurable using a superconducting quantum interference device. At the same time, your heart is also picking up on things intuitively before stimulus has even presented itself as an event in space-time.

You can feel even more confident in trusting your intuition knowing that it’s literally the intelligence of your heart continuously scanning the future for you. When you feel something wrong inside your heart center or when you get a bad feeling about someone around you, it’s not just a feeling. It’s your heart’s intelligence trying to protect you and warn you of potential threats and dangers around you.

Trust the feelings and experiences you have inside your heart center, and allow yourself to fully feel and connect with whatever it is that arises within it. Just like you listen to the thoughts that arise with in the mind in your heart, it’s as equally important to listen to the intuitive feelings that arise within the mind of the heart.

+ 116 A Delicate Longing

The connection of the Torah with the Holy One, blessed be He, is the foundation of the holy service of the unique few.

We concern ourselves with Jewish law, with its analysis and details. We know—generally—that all the words of Torah are the paths of God, flowing from the source of supernal life.

But still, doesn’t a divine longing live within our soul? Doesn’t the pleasantness of God pulse within it? Closeness to God is more pleasing to our soul than all pleasures. This is a delicate longing that is felt as well in the heart of life: “My heart and my flesh sing for the living God.”

How may we lift up the noble feeling that is hidden within all crevices and details of the Torah to that same level of supernal, inclusive feeling that pours into the soul from the supernal pleasure?

This results from a mighty uplifting of the spirit. It has to do with connecting the Torah and the Holy One, blessed be He—that is, connecting the particularistic lower Torah to the inclusive upper Torah.

Orot Hatorah, 3:1


+ 109 Positive Mindfulness

When we elevate matters with our clarity of intent, our awareness continuously expands in the abundance of a superior reality. At that point, our desire—a desire of eternal love, of great love—for the light of the infinite is scented from the Eden of life. Then we shall gaze and be illumined.

But if our mindfulness is dislodged and grows impoverished, the face of heaven darkens. Beauty turns to mourning and to barrenness. Then that clarifying process that comes from heaven, which demands the right to play its role, depresses the special mission of humanity. It dulls the light of mindfulness and the complete contents of a full life. This clarifying process, reaching to the root of all being, is a necessity: deeply implanted and flowing without cease. Now, the wellsprings of the flow of life dry up because our hands are feeble in dealing with the supernal Torah.

But everything returns to its light and to its shining life when we engage in supernal repentance filled with knowledge and positive mindfulness, illumined with the light of Torah contained within the wisdom of the Jewish people, which is the inheritance of our patriarchs and which is filled with an eternal glory.

The text of the blessing, “He planted eternal life within us,” refers to the oral Torah: in all its levels and in the totality of its beauty.

Orot Hatorah 3:2


+ 108 One Command

The essence of knowledge is that the totality of the Torah should cleave to our hearts so strongly and with such clear understanding that this totality will powerfully pour forth, resulting in a powerful, individual concern for every mitzvah and detail of the Torah. This will be like the powerful life-force that pours forth from the heart, spreading to every limb.

This is not the case when there is no true, all-encompassing knowledge. Then everything in the Torah is separate. This creates confusion in our basic understanding of the Torah. It prevents our service of love and generosity. Then “the word of Hashem shall be for you a command and a command, a line and a line.”

We must recognize the words of the Torah as one law and one command.

Orot Hatorah 3:3


+ 114 A Love of the Entirety

Every individual matter in the Torah flows from the entire Torah: from the written Torah, the oral Torah, any good learning, any mitzvah, and any good trait.

There are differences between these levels. But the love and joy in performing the mitzvos and in learning Torah for its own sake must be a love of the entirety: a love of all the light, life, holiness and supernal spirituality—literally, of all of it. It is stored and hidden within whatever detail we are involved with. And it grows prominent due to the content of that detail, in all the manifestations of its light, glory and holy radiance.

Orot Hatorah 4:3


+ 96 The Encompassing Light

At times, we cannot learn because we are on a level where the encompassing light that transcends letters shines upon us, and we cannot constrict ourselves within the letters of what we are learning.

When we accept this illumination in holiness and humility, we can learn with great joy and a very clear understanding.

Orot Hatorah 5:3


+ 112 Together, They Revel

When we learn simple matters in Torah, we should be aware of how the supernal light descends in a wondrous form, until it is well-established in this world of action. We should broaden our heart in regard to this great preciousness and the strength of this life-force, which flows from the source of the Holy of Holies, and which is given fullness from the sanctified path of the light of Israel in all the world.

Know clearly that this light, which is so constricted within words and letters, within customs, within actions, within laws, within the tools of logical analysis and reasoning, meets with the supernal light that is elevated above all these. It is cleansed within it.

And together, they revel.

And the light of the Life of the worlds is filled with great radiance and pleasure because of that continuous encounter, which is brought about by the strength of a person learning Torah for its own sake, making peace in the realms above and the realms below.

Orot Hakodesh, II:3


+ 101 The Two Companions

The oral Torah draws sustenance in a hidden manner from the heavenly, and in a revealed manner from the earthly.

The land of Israel must be built up, with all the people of Israel dwelling upon it in a well-ordered manner: with the Temple and a kingdom, with cohanim and prophecy, with judges and officers and all their accouterments. Then the oral Torah will live in all the glow of its beauty. It will flower and bloom. With its entire measure, it will connect to the written Torah.

In exile, these twins were separated. The written Torah rose to the heights of holiness, and the oral Torah descended to the very depths. Nevertheless, [the oral Torah] receives a silent sustenance from the light of the written Torah, from its past uncultivated growth, which suffices to allow it to exist, [although] with a constrained life.

Every day, [the oral Torah] descends and falls. But one day the breeze will blow and the light of life will arrive from the treasury of eternal redemption. Then Israel will grow strong. We will be planted upon our land and improve in all the magnificence of our structure. Then the oral Torah will begin to blossom, from the depth of its root. It will rise higher and higher. The light of the written Torah will shine the rays of its light upon it anew: “new for the morning.” Then these companions will unite in the realm of their bridal chamber.

And the light of the soul of God, the Life of worlds, which is revealed in the revival of Israel (when our horn is lifted), will shine with the light of the seven days of the light of the sun and the light of the moon combined.

Then their light will be straight and penetrating, connecting one extremity to the other. It will respond to the land and the nation in every manifestation of life. The light of the moon will be like the light of the sun. And the light of the sun will shine sevenfold, like the light of the seven days, on the day that God binds the fracture of His nation and heals the illness of its wound.

Orot Hatorah 1:3


+ 125 Torah Scholars Whose Learning Is Their Occupation

Torah scholars whose learning is their occupation must see to it that their path lies correctly before them and that their goal is clear, so that their spirit may be strong and their mind quiet, calm and settled.

How great is the exalted principle, “You are not required to finish, yet neither are you absolved of the work.” Therefore, there is not such a great need to visualize self-encouragement in your Torah-learning service that involves embracing the totality of its knowledge.

This can calm your heart, so that you may learn every topic with a confident and quiet spirit, undisturbed by other things or by worrying in general about attaining total knowledge, which is impossible. Instead, you find your own personal service acceptable.

Nevertheless, you must pave a path for yourself upon which you can still see the complete circumference of the Torah.

In ideology, you must gain clarity about your purpose and the purpose of your desire in your Torah-learning service of God. Also, in practical learning, you must yearn to encompass and incorporate the complete sum of the entire practical teachings that are in the Torah’s practical aspect—as far as you can.

People customarily say that the Torah has no end. In regard to its practical aspect, that is true only within certain parameters—for really, it is possible, when a person goes on a straight path, to attain a total and clear embrace of the entire practical aspect of the Torah.

Those who are great need no explanation for this. But those of middle rank need help, after they arrive at the measure of competent understanding of the depth of halachah, in knowing the form of halachah in a straight and proper way, [which they gain] by serving Torah scholars in correct measure, until they know how to study any Talmudic discussion properly, and how to question and answer in accordance with the path of Torah in the give and take of halachah. Then their main effort must be, first and foremost, to encompass all the halachos of the Rif in their simple meaning, with competent breadth of knowledge. The attainment of this is made much easier by a calm steadfastness.

This service is very sweet in itself, as well as a pleasurable vision that is close to the goal of total encompassing , knowing the complete sum of all the halachos—according to how very close [their study is] to their source in the Talmud in general. Only through the gathering of all the details will the great beauty of the glorious building of the entire practical Torah stand before your eyes.

When you proceed in this fashion every day, continuously, you will add study-times dedicated to an overall mastery of the written Torah, and you will spend set aside times every day for acquiring the wisdom of the aggadah, midrash, ethical works, philosophy and Kabbalah, in proper proportion, and a breadth of time for independent thought, in order to broaden good sensibilities, as well as your set time for learning Talmud quickly every day, and as well as occasional times for clarifying the depth of halachah broadly and engaging in sharp analysis of various topics, in order to broaden your mind and study in-depth, which is crucial for all those who seek the Torah.

When you acquire an encompassing expertise in the halachos of the Rif, there will be born within you the desire to know the halachos clearly. You will learn a great deal of Talmud (Babylonian and Jerusalem), Toseftas and all the words of the Sages, out of an inner recognition of the need for breadth and clarity. The essence of your service must always be in broad learning of the foundations of the halachos and the essentials of the words of Torah, until the perfection of knowledge in all the areas and details will make your awareness whole in all other matters that a person needs. And at that point, people will be inspired by your advice and counsel.

When you proceed in this way, you will also be able to set fixed times for acquiring the wisdom and knowledge that are useful to a person in this world, which broaden the circumference of your knowledge and give you the courage to face the necessities of life. Then you will be pleasing to others and you will find grace in the eyes of God and man.

Orot Hatorah 9:3


+ 110 To Expel Coarseness

It is an established principle that if you see that your success lies in the Torah’s spirituality and mystical teachings, and if you find learning halachah in depth difficult, your inner obligation is to set aside the majority of your time to that study that fits your spirit.

Similarly, if you see that learning the secrets of the Torah is sanctifying you, is raising your spirit and bringing you close to holiness with a feeling in your heart and inner mind, and you do not see this desirable fruit from your exoteric studies—and, more than that, they do not suffice to expel from you the coarseness of your proclivities that you sense in your spirit—this is a definite sign that your rectification lies in learning your portion of the inner light of the Torah’s mysticism.

When you feel within yourself such a clarity and purity that the exoteric learning will also support you in [rising in] holiness, you will be able to expand your boundary until you will fulfill your purpose well and come back to gain more pleasure in the teachings of the supernal secrets “for sustenance, for satiety and for fine garments” (Isaiah 23:18). When everything is for the sake of heaven, with pure intent, “He does not despise the suffering of the impoverished” (Psalms 22:25).

+ 166 Dark Alleys Shine

Once we learn much hidden Torah, whatever we understand and learn from the revealed Torah shines with a precious light.

Then the hidden Torah, with its special quality, appears in all those topics that the revealed Torah discusses.

This is found in the Jerusalem Talmud: since its authors were pious, their Torah was “blessed.” In contrast, the words of the Babylonian Talmud are merely “kept.” It seems that the Jerusalem Talmud deals with more elevated, pious people. Because of them, the Torah grows and becomes glorious. This is due to the appearance of attainments of holiness, starting from a small beginning and developing into great and powerful rivers. These people attain the light of Torah by prayer and deep study, as well as before and after learning. Such people constitute the body of Torah and the soul of Torah.

In this regard, there is a difference between the air of the land of Israel (where the holy spirit can flow upon the content of Jewish law) and elsewhere (where the holy spirit can spread openly only in aggadah, whereas Jewish law is judged by human intellect).

“‘In the dark places, You have placed me’ (Eichah 3:6)—this is the Babylonian Talmud” (Sanhedrin 24a). But from the midst of darkness, great light will sprout: “The nation that walks in darkness has seen a great light, those who dwell in a land of the shadow of death—light has shone upon them” (Is. 9:1). [“These are masters of the Talmud, who have seen great light, for the Holy One, blessed be He, illumines their eyes with what is forbidden and allowed, what is ritually unclean and clean” (Midrash Tanchuma Noach).]

In this way, these people bring down to the lowly avenues of life the illumination of God’s supernal Presence. In this way, they cause multitudinous dark alleys to shine. This aids numbers of those who are distant come, approach and connect to the supernal light of the glow of Torah in its might, the Torah of the land of Israel: “‘The gold of that land is good’ (Bereishis 2:12)—there is no Torah like the Torah of the land of Israel, and no wisdom like the wisdom of the land of Israel” (Bereishis Rabbah 16).

+ 139 The Prayerbook and the Villager

by Shai Agnon

Shai Agnon (winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature) told:

One time, a number of us—myself, Chaim Nachman Bialik, Eliezer Meir Lifshitz, Rabbi Simchah Asaf, Binyamin and others—entered the presence of the great Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Hacohen Kook and discussed the problems of the generation and how to rectify it.

One of the group made a speech in praise of the Torah, which ended by criticizing the many additional laws enacted by the rabbis in every generation. Rabbi Nachman rose in pain, and appeared angry. But he immediately overcame his anger, as was his holy way, and answered quietly: Hearing this has brought to mind a story.

There was once a great rabbi who happened to pass through a village. Night fell, and he had to stay there overnight. He asked the villager at whose house he was staying for a volume of the Talmud, but the villager didn’t have one. He asked for a mishnah—the villager didn’t have. He asked for an Ein Yaakov—the villager didn’t have that either.

Finally, he asked the villager, “Do you have a prayerbook?” The villager brought him an old prayerbook, which contained a commentary that the rabbi read the entire night, and which he enjoyed greatly.

The next day, the rabbi offered to pay a good price for the prayerbook, but the villager refused. The rabbi persisted: “I’ll trade it for a new prayerbook with a fine binding.” But the villager still refused.

“Why?” asked the rabbi.

The villager replied, “Rabbi, every morning when I get up I like to drink something hot, and I warm up the kettle. To make the fire catch quickly, I light a piece of paper and put it under the tinder. Since I don’t have much paper in the house, I rip a page out of the prayerbook and light that. And also, every time I want to smoke my pipe, I rip a page out of the prayerbook to light it.

“I am already an old man, but because there is so much commentary, I still haven’t come to the prayers. All the pages I’ve ripped out really aren’t the prayerbook.”

Malachim Kivnei Adam, pp. 363-65


+ 92 The Neglect of Torah

On occasion, the times during which we neglect Torah act to illumine our eyes so that we may recognize the content of the holiness of the Torah and the depth of life that it pours forth upon those who learn it.

+ 104 When Your Healthy Heart Expands

When your healthy heart expands with the might of the strength of the pulse, the flow of blood through the finest and most distant blood vessels, and when your mind is so strong that it can understand the foundation of Torah and its principles, how its many details are a necessary outcome of its totality, then your outlook grows clear and all-encompassing, and you attain a great love and feelings of respect and appreciation of holiness for every matter and precise detail in the Torah.

+ 106 A Jewish woman from Chelm went to the market one day to buy herring and a loaf of bread. "How much is it?" she asked the storekeeper. "14 cents," answered the storekeeper to the lady. "14! For what?" asked the Jewish lady. "I think it's 11." The storekeeper explained: The herring costs 7 cents, and the loaf of bread costs 7 cents also. So together it comes to 14 cents." "I know different. To the best of my recollection, 7 and 7 is 11." "What are your saying?" "As far as I know, 7 and 7 is 11...I had already had 4 children when my first husband died. When I married a second time, my second husband also had 4 children from his first wife. After getting married, we had 3 children together. So each of us had 7 children, and together we had 11! Obviously, 7 and 7 is 11."

He is very proud and phones his mother in New York to invite her to the inauguration. Harry: Momma, guess what! I've just been elected president, won't you come to my inauguration?
Mother: Harry! You know I hate trains. I can't face the journey all the way to Washington.
Maybe next time.
Harry: Momma! You will take no train. Air Force One will collect you.
The journey will be over in 30 minutes. Come to my inauguration, please...
Mother: Harry, I hate hotels. The non-kosher food! Nahh, maybe next time.
Harry: Momma!! You will stay in the White House, a kosher chef to yourself. PLEASE come.
Mother: Harry! I have nothing to wear! Harry: I have someone on his way to take you to Macy's and Bloomingdale's to make you look perfect. You must come!!!
Mother: Okay, okay, I suppose I will come. Inaugaration day comes. Mother is on the front row, next to the Secretary of State. Harry is called up to become the next president.

+ 59 Man was created with the will to receive self-pleasure, called “the will to receive for one’s own benefit.” We are told that one has to nullify that will to receive and acquire a new Kli [vessel], called “the will to bestow.” Not every person is rewarded with it, meaning with the ability to acquire Kelim [vessels] suitable for the Upper Light to reside in. For one to attain the will to bestow, our sages said (Kiddushin 30), “I have created the evil inclination, I have created for it the Torah as a spice,” meaning that specifically through the Torah, one can achieve the Kelim of bestowal. Rabash, The Rungs of the Ladder, “The Importance of Faith”


+ 50 Through the natural remedy of the engagement in Torah and Mitzvot Lishma, which the Giver of the Torah knows, as our sages wrote (Kidushin 30b), “The Creator says, ‘I have created the evil inclination, I have created for it the Torah as a spice.’” Thus, that creature develops and marches upward in degrees of the above spoken exaltedness, until he loses all remnants of self-love and all the Mitzvot in his body rise, and he performs all his actions only to bestow, so even the necessity that he receives flows in the direction of bestowal, so he can bestow. Baal HaSulam, Matan Torah [The Giving of the Torah], Item 12


+ 59 Thus, we see that the main work we must do, to achieve the purpose for which the world was created—to do good to His creations—is to qualify ourselves to acquire vessels of bestowal. This is the correction for making the King’s gift complete, so they will feel no shame upon reception of the pleasures. And all the evil in us removes us from the good that we are destined to receive. We were given the remedy of Torah and Mitzvot so as to achieve those Kelim. This is the meaning of what our sages said (Kidushin, 30), “The Creator says, ‘I have created the evil inclination, I have created for it the spice of Torah,’ by which he will lose all the sparks of self-love within him and will be rewarded with his desire being only to bestow contentment upon his Maker.” Rabash, The Rungs of the Ladder, “What Is the Substance of Slander and Against Whom Is It?”
