+ 324 I speak of the war as fruitless; for it is clear that, prosecuted upon the basis of the proclamations of September 22d and September 24th, 1862, prosecuted, as I must understand these proclamations, to say nothing of the kindred blood which has followed, upon the theory of emancipation, devastation, subjugation, it cannot fail to be fruitless in every thing except the harvest of woe which it is ripening for what was once the peerless republic. Franklin Pierce

+ 302 It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today. The 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, family leave, health insurance, Social Security, Medicare, retirement plans. The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label. Barack Obama

+ 402 Well-matured and well-disciplined talent is always sure of a market, provided it exerts itself; but it must not cower at home and expect to be sought for. There is a good deal of cant, too, in the whining about the success of forward and impudent men, while men of retiring worth are passed over with neglect. But it happens often that those forward men have that valuable quality of promptness and activity, without which worth is a mere inoperative property. A barking dog is often more useful than a sleeping lion. Endeavor to make your talents convertible to ready use, prompt for the occasion, and adapted to the ordinary purposes of life; cultivate strength rather than gracefulness; in our country it is the useful, not the ornamental, that is in demand. Washington Irving, letter to Pierre Paris Irving (nephew), 1824 December 7th

+ 274 At 20 years of age the will reigns, at 30 the wit, at 40 the judgment. Benjamin Franklin


+ 344 Perhaps the history of the errors of mankind, all things considered, is more valuable and interesting than that of their discoveries. Truth is uniform and narrow; it constantly exists, and does not seem to require so much an active energy, as a passive aptitude of the soul in order to encounter it. But error is endlessly diversified; it has no reality, but is the pure and simple creation of the mind that invents it. In this field the soul has room enough to expand herself, to display all her boundless faculties, and all her beautiful and interesting extravagancies and absurdities. Benjamin Franklin, from his report to the King of France on Animal Magnetism, 1784


+ 291 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)


+ 361 ZOHAR [To Deut. 6:4]: Hear O Israel: HaShem our G-d, HaShem is One. Why is there a need of mentioning the Name of G-d three times in this verse? The First HaShem is the Father above. The Second is the Stem of Jesse, the Messiah Who is to come from the family of Jesse through David. And the Third One is the Way which is below [meaning the Holy Spirit Who shows us the way] and These Three are One (Zohar quotes from Amsterdam Version).

+ 330 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).

+ 318 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


+ 288 Be a tail to lions rather than a head to jackals. Pirkei Avot 4:20


+ 355 There are four types among those who attend the study hall. One who goes but does nothing - has gained the rewards of going. One who does study but does not go to the study hall - has gained the rewards of doing. One who goes and does, is a chassid. One who neither goes nor does, is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:14


+ 291 Yossei the son of Yoezer of Tzreidah, and Yossei the son of Yochanan of Jerusalem, received the tradition from them.

+ 326 He would also say: Make that His will should be your will, so that He should make your will to be as His will. Nullify your will before His will, so that He should nullify the will of others before your will. Hillel would say: Do not separate yourself from the community. Do not believe in yourself until the day you die. Do not judge your fellow until you have stood in his place. Do not say something that is not readily understood in the belief that it will ultimately be understood [or: Do not say something that ought not to be heard even in the strictest confidence, for ultimately it will be heard]. And do not say "When I free myself of my concerns, I will study,'' for perhaps you will never free yourself. Pirkei Avot 2:4

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

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


+ 367 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


+ 372 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


+ 326 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


+ 313 Ben Azzai would say: Run to pursue a minor mitzvah, and flee from a transgression. For a mitzvah brings another mitzvah, and a transgression brings another transgression. For the reward of a mitzvah is a mitzvah, and the reward of transgression is transgression. Pirkei Avot 4:2


+ 276 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


+ 287 Rabbi Levitas of Yavneh would say: Be very, very humble, for the hope of mortal man is worms. Rabbi Yochanan the son of Berokah would say: Whoever desecrates the Divine Name covertly, is punished in public. Regarding the desecration of the Name, the malicious and the merely negligent are one and the same. Pirkei Avot 4:4


+ 315 Rabbi Ishmael the son of Rabbi Yossei would say: One who learns Torah in order to teach, is given the opportunity to learn and teach. One who learns in order to do, is given the opportunity to learn, teach, observe and do. Rabbi Tzaddok would say: Do not separate yourself from the community. Do not act as a counselor-at-law (when serving as a judge). Do not make the Torah a crown to magnify yourself with, or a spade with which to dig. So would Hillel say: one who make personal use of the crown of Torah shall perish. Hence, one who benefits himself from the words of Torah, removes his life from the world. Pirkei Avot 4:5


+ 280 Rabbi Yossei would say: Whoever honors the Torah, is himself honored by the people; whoever degrades the Torah, is himself degraded by the people. Pirkei Avot 4:6


+ 296 His son, Rabbi Ishmael would say: One who refrains from serving as a judge avoids hatred, thievery and false oaths. One who frivolously hands down rulings is a fool, wicked and arrogant. Pirkei Avot 4:7


+ 329 He would also say: Do not judge on your own, for there is none qualified to judge alone, only the One. And do not say, You must accept my view, for this is their the majority's right, not yours. Pirkei Avot 4:8


+ 277 Rabbi Jonathan would say: Whoever fulfills the Torah in poverty, will ultimately fulfill it in wealth; and whoever neglects the Torah in wealth, will ultimately neglect it in poverty. Pirkei Avot 4:9


+ 302 Rabbi Meir would say: Engage minimally in business, and occupy yourself with Torah. Be humble before every man. If you neglect the Torah, there will be many more causes for neglect before you; if you toil much in Torah, there is much reward to give to you. Pirkei Avot 4:10


+ 319 Rabbi Eliezer the son of Yaakov would say: He who fulfills one mitzvah, acquires for himself one angel-advocate; he who commits one transgression, acquires against himself one angel-accuser. Repentance and good deeds are as a shield against retribution. Rabbi Yochanan the Sandal-Maker would say: Every gathering that is for the sake of Heaven, will endure; that is not for the sake of Heaven, will not endure. Pirkei Avot 4:11


+ 317 Rabbi Eliezer the son of Shamua would say: The dignity of your student should be as precious to you as your own; the dignity of your colleague, as your awe of your master; and your awe of your master as your awe of Heaven. Pirkei Avot 4:12


+ 306 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


+ 303 Rabbi Nehora'i would say: Exile yourself to a place of Torah; do not say that it will come after you, that your colleagues will help you retain it. Rely not on your own understanding. Pirkei Avot 4:14


+ 265 Rabbi Yannai would say: We have no comprehension of the tranquility of the wicked, nor of the suffering of the righteous. Rabbi Matya the son of Charash would say: Be first to greet every man. Be a tail to lions, rather than a head to foxes. Pirkei Avot 4:15


+ 333 Rabbi Yaakov would say: This world is comparable to the antechamber before the World to Come. Prepare yourself in the antechamber, so that you may enter the banquet hall. Pirkei Avot 4:16


+ 284 He would also say: A single moment of repentance and good deeds in this world is greater than all of the World to Come. And a single moment of bliss in the World to Come is greater than all of the present world. Pirkei Avot 4:17


+ 339 Rabbi Shimon the son of Elazar would say: Do not appease your friend at the height of his anger; do not comfort him while his dead still lies before him; do not ask him about his vow the moment he makes it; and do not endeavor to see him at the time of his degradation. Pirkei Avot 4:18


+ 309 Samuel the Small would say: "When your enemy falls, do not rejoice; when he stumbles, let your heart not be gladdened. Lest G-d see, and it will displeasing in His eyes, and He will turn His wrath from him [to you]" (Proverbs 24:17-18). Pirkei Avot 4:19


+ 307 Elisha the son of Avuyah would say: One who learns Torah in his childhood, what is this comparable to? To ink inscribed on fresh paper. One who learns Torah in his old age, what is this comparable to? To ink inscribed on erased paper. Rabbi Yossei the son of Judah of Kfar HaBavli would say: One who learns Torah from youngsters, whom is he comparable to? To one who eats unripe grapes and drinks [unfermented] wine from the press. One who learns Torah from the old, whom is he comparable to? To one who eats ripened grapes and drinks aged wine. Said Rabbi Meir: Look not at the vessel, but at what it contains. There are new vessels that are filled with old wine, and old vessels that do not even contain new wine. Pirkei Avot 4:20


+ 296 Rabbi Elazar HaKapor would say: Envy, lust and honor drive a man from the world. Pirkei Avot 4:21


+ 332 He would also say: Those who are born will die, and the dead will live. The living will be judged, to learn, to teach and to comprehend that He is G-d, He is the former, He is the creator, He is the comprehender, He is the judge, He is the witness, He is the plaintiff, and He will judge. Blessed is He, for before Him there is no wrong, no forgetting, no favoritism, and no taking of bribes; know, that everything is according to the reckoning. Let not your heart convince you that the grave is your escape; for against your will you are formed, against your will you are born, against your will you live, against your will you die, and against your will you are destined to give a judgement and accounting before the king, king of all kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. Pirkei Avot 4:22


+ 299 Ten miracles were performed for our forefathers in Egypt, and another ten at the sea. Ten afflictions were wrought by G-d upon the Egyptians in Egypt, and another ten at the sea. With ten tests our forefathers tested G-d in the desert, as is stated (Numbers 14:22), "They tested Me these ten times, and did not hearken to My voice." Pirkei Avot 5:4


+ 302 There are four types among those who attend the study hall. One who goes but does nothing--has gained the rewards of going. One who does [study] but does not go to the study hall - has gained the rewards of doing. One who goes and does, is a chassid. One who neither goes nor does, is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:14


+ 385 Whoever possesses the following three traits is of the disciples of our father Abraham; and whoever possesses the opposite three traits is of the disciples of the wicked Balaam. The disciples of our father Abraham have a good eye, a meek spirit and a humble soul. The disciples of the wicked Balaam have an evil eye, a haughty spirit and a gross soul. What is the difference between the disciples of our father Abraham and the disciples of the wicked Balaam? The disciples of our father Abraham benefit in this world and inherit the World To Come, and as is stated, "To bequeath to those who love Me there is, and their treasures I shall fill" (Proverbs 8:21). The disciples of the wicked Balaam inherit purgatory and descent into the pit of destruction, as is stated, "And You, G-d, shall cast them into the pit of destruction; bloody and deceitful men, they shall not attain half their days. And I shall trust in you" (ibid., 55:24). Pirkei Avot 5:19


+ 387 The sages expounded in the language of the Mishnah (blessed is He who chose them and their learning): Rabbi Meir would say: Whoever studies Torah for Torah's sake alone, merits many things; not only that, but [the creation of] the entire world is worthwhile for him alone. He is called friend, beloved, lover of God, lover of humanity, rejoicer of God, rejoicer of humanity. The Torah enclothes him with humility and awe; makes him fit to be righteous, pious, correct and faithful; distances him from sin and brings him close to merit. From him, people enjoy counsel and wisdom, understanding and power, as is stated (Proverbs 8:14): "Mine are counsel and wisdom, I am understanding, mine is power." The Torah grants him sovereignty, dominion, and jurisprudence. The Torah's secrets are revealed to him, and he becomes as an ever-increasing wellspring and as an unceasing river. He becomes modest, patient and forgiving of insults. The Torah uplifts him and makes him greater than all creations. Pirkei Avot 6:1


+ 350 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


+ 303 Such is the way of Torah: Bread with salt you shall eat, water in small measure you shall drink, and upon the ground you shall sleep; live a life of deprivation and toil in Torah. If so you do, "fortunate are you, and good is to you" (Psalms 128:2): fortunate are you in this world, and it is good to you in the World To Come. Pirkei Avot 6:4


+ 308 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


+ 330 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


+ 375 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


+ 315 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


+ 246 If I am not for me, who is for me; and if I am only for myself, what am I. And if not now, when? – Hillel, Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14


+ 304 Who is wise? One who learns from every man… Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations… Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot… Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. Ben Zoma, Ethics of the Fathers, 4:1


+ 274 Yeshuat Hashem k’heref ayin. The salvation of God is like the blink of an eye. Pesikta Zutreta, Esther 4:17.


+ 360 If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky way. properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality? Mark Twain (“Concerning The Jews,” Harper’s Magazine, 1899 see The Complete Essays of Mark Twain, Doubleday [1963] pg. 249)

+ 247 As a tree gives fruit, healing words give life, but dishonest words crush the spirit. Mishlei 15:4


+ 230 People with understanding want more knowledge, but fools just want more foolishness. Mishlei 15:14


+ 244 Wise people’s lives get better and better. They avoid whatever would cause their death. Mishlei 15:24


+ 264 The Lord makes everything go as he pleases. He has even prepared a day of disaster for evil people. Mishlei 16:4


+ 248 An angry king can put someone to death, so a wise person will try to make him happy. Mishlei 16:14


+ 239 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, making people happy and healthy. Mishlei 16:24


+ 212 Evil people listen to evil words. Liars pay attention to cruel words. Mishlei 17:4


+ 246 Starting a quarrel is like a leak in a dam, so stop it before a fight breaks out. Mishlei 17:14


+ 257 The person with understanding is always looking for wisdom, but the mind of a fool wanders everywhere. Mishlei 17:24


+ 217 Spoken words can be like deep water, but wisdom is like a flowing stream. Mishlei 18:4


+ 254 The will to live can get you through sickness, but no one can live with a broken spirit. Mishlei 18:14


+ 278 Some friends may ruin you, but a real friend will be more loyal than a brother. Mishlei 18:24


+ 345 Wealthy people are always finding more friends, but the poor lose all theirs. Mishlei 19:4


+ 278 Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a wise wife is a gift from the Lord. Mishlei 19:14


+ 237 Though the lazy person puts his hand in the dish, he won’t lift the food to his mouth. Mishlei 19:24


+ 234 Lazy farmers don’t plow when they should; they expect a harvest, but there is none. Mishlei 20:4


+ 273 Buyers say, “This is bad. It’s no good.” Then they go away and brag about what they bought. Mishlei 20:14


+ 288 The Lord decides what a person will do; no one understands what his life is all about. Mishlei 20:24


+ 242 Proud looks, proud thoughts, and evil actions are sin. Mishlei 21:4


+ 237 A secret gift will calm an angry person; a present given in secrecy will quiet great anger. Mishlei 21:14


+ 265 People who act with stubborn pride are called “proud,” “bragger,” and “mocker.” Mishlei 21:24


+ 309 Respecting the Lord and not being proud will bring you wealth, honor, and life. Mishlei 22:4


+ 241 The words of an unfaithful wife are like a deep trap. Those who make the Lord angry will get caught by them. Mishlei 22:14


+ 250 Don’t make friends with quick-tempered people or spend time with those who have bad tempers. Mishlei 22:24


+ 228 Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich; be wise enough to control yourself. Mishlei 23:4


+ 234 If you spank them, you will save them from death. Mishlei 23:14


+ 231 The father of a good child is very happy; parents who have wise children are glad because of them. Mishlei 23:24


+ 266 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


+ 236 Don’t envy evil people or try to be friends with them. Mishlei 24:1


+ 286 Their minds are always planning violence, and they always talk about making trouble. Mishlei 24:2


+ 235 It takes wisdom to have a good family, and it takes understanding to make it strong. Mishlei 24:3


+ 235 It takes knowledge to fill a home with rare and beautiful treasures. Mishlei 24:4


+ 231 Wise people have great power, and those with knowledge have great strength. Mishlei 24:5


+ 236 So you need advice when you go to war. If you have lots of good advice, you will win. Mishlei 24:6


+ 238 Foolish people cannot understand wisdom. They have nothing to say in a discussion. Mishlei 24:7


+ 208 Whoever makes evil plans will be known as a troublemaker. Mishlei 24:8


+ 240 Making foolish plans is sinful, and making fun of wisdom is hateful. Mishlei 24:9


+ 247 If you give up when trouble comes, it shows that you are weak. Mishlei 24:10


+ 228 Save those who are being led to their death; rescue those who are about to be killed. Mishlei 24:11


+ 252 If you say, “We don’t know anything about this,” God, who knows what’s in your mind, will notice. Mishlei 24:12


+ 234 Save those who are being led to their death; rescue those who are about to be killed. Mishlei 24:11


+ 277 If you say, “We don’t know anything about this,” God, who knows what’s in your mind, will notice. He is watching you, and he will know. He will reward each person for what he has done. Mishlei 24:12


+ 275 My child, eat honey because it is good. Honey from the honeycomb tastes sweet. Mishlei 24:13


+ 283 In the same way, wisdom is pleasing to you. If you find it, you have hope for the future, and your wishes will come true. Mishlei 24:14


+ 241 Don’t be wicked and attack a good family’s house; don’t rob the place where they live. Mishlei 24:15


+ 264 Even though good people may be bothered by trouble seven times, they are never defeated, but the wicked are overwhelmed by trouble. Mishlei 24:16


+ 268 Don’t be happy when your enemy is defeated; don’t be glad when he is overwhelmed. Mishlei 24:17


+ 249 The Lord will notice and be displeased. He may not be angry with them anymore. Mishlei 24:18


+ 242 Don’t envy evil people, and don’t be jealous of the wicked. Mishlei 24:19


+ 256 An evil person has nothing to hope for; the wicked will die like a flame that is put out. Mishlei 24:20


+ 330 My child, respect the Lord and the king. Don’t join those people who refuse to obey them. Mishlei 24:21


+ 235 The Lord and the king will quickly destroy such people. Those two can cause great disaster! Mishlei 24:22


+ 267 These are also sayings of the wise: It is not good to take sides when you are the judge. Mishlei 24:23


+ 254 Don’t tell the wicked that they are innocent; people will curse you, and nations will hate you. Mishlei 24:24


+ 261 But things will go well if you punish the guilty, and you will receive rich blessings. Mishlei 24:25


+ 227 An honest answer is as pleasing as a kiss on the lips. Mishlei 24:26


+ 249 First, finish your outside work and prepare your fields. After that, you can build your house. Mishlei 24:27


+ 257 Don’t testify against your neighbor for no good reason. Don’t say things that are false. Mishlei 24:28


+ 206 Do not say, I will get even; I will do to him what he did to me. Mishlei 24:29


+ 244 I passed by a lazy person’s field and by the vineyard of someone with no sense. Mishlei 24:30


+ 266 Thorns had grown up everywhere. The ground was covered with weeds, and the stone walls had fallen down. Mishlei 24:31


+ 277 I thought about what I had seen; I learned this lesson from what I saw. Mishlei 24:32


+ 237 You sleep a little; you take a nap. You fold your hands and lie down to rest. Mishlei 24:33


+ 249 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


+ 211 Remove the scum from the silver, so the silver can be used by the silversmith. Mishlei 25:4


+ 262 People who brag about gifts they never give are like clouds and wind that give no rain. Mishlei 25:14


+ 289 It is better to live in a corner on the roof than inside the house with a quarreling wife. Mishlei 25:24


+ 232 Don’t answer fools when they speak foolishly, or you will be just like them. Mishlei 26:4


+ 265 Like a door turning back and forth on its hinges, the lazy person turns over and over in bed. Mishlei 26:14


+ 242 Those who hate you may try to fool you with their words, but in their minds they are planning evil. Mishlei 26:24


+ 258 Anger is cruel and destroys like a flood, but no one can put up with jealousy! Mishlei 27:4


+ 239 If you loudly greet your neighbor early in the morning, he will think of it as a curse. Mishlei 27:14


+ 215 Riches will not go on forever, nor do governments go on forever. Mishlei 27:24


+ 226 Those who disobey what they have been taught praise the wicked, but those who obey what they have been taught are against them. Mishlei 28:4


+ 262 Those who are always respectful will be happy, but those who are stubborn will get into trouble. Mishlei 28:14


+ 262 Whoever robs father or mother and says, “It’s not wrong,” is just like someone who destroys things. Mishlei 28:24


+ 234 If a king is fair, he makes his country strong, but if he takes gifts dishonestly, he tears his country down. Mishlei 29:4


+ 267 If a king judges poor people fairly, his government will continue forever. Mishlei 29:14


+ 235 Partners of thieves are their own worst enemies. If they have to testify in court, they are afraid to say anything. Mishlei 29:24


+ 256 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


+ 250 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 There are four things on earth that are small, but they are very wise: Mishlei 30:24


+ 233 Kings should not drink wine, Lemuel, and rulers should not desire beer. Mishlei 30:4

+ 276 If Jerusalem falls into the hands of the Muslims, Athens and Rome will be next. Thus, Jerusalem is the main front protecting the West. It is not a conflict over territory but rather an ideological battle, between the mentality of the liberated West and the ideology of Islamic barbarism. There has been an independent Palestinian state since 1946, and it is the kingdom of Jordan. Geert Wilders, quoted in "Geert Wilders: Change Jordan's name to Palestine". ynetnews.com. 20 June 2010.

+ 293 Every day of our lives and in every season of the year (not just at Easter time), Jesus asks each of us, as he did following his triumphant entry into Jerusalem those many years ago, ‘What think ye of Christ? whose son is he?’ (Matt. 22:42.) We declare that he is the Son of God, and the reality of that fact should stir our souls more frequently. I pray that it will, this Easter season and always. Howard W. Hunter


+ 323 Jerusalem (1804)

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

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

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

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


+ 321 The last day i was home i took the rental car up old 14 behind the Sandia Mountains. as i drove north toward Santa Fe past Madrid I rolled the window down halfway and let the cold, brisk, February air come into the car. I smelled the pinon trees and the damp earth. The Gray came over me. My life flashed through my heart in one deep rush of feeling. When I made the turn around the mountain to the west, the mesas and valleys spread out before me under the orange and gold horizon. The sun hit me like a wave that flooded out the past and dissolved any idea of the future, and I felt okay and whole for about twenty minutes. Marc Maron, The Jerusalem Syndrome: My Life as a Reluctant Messiah


+ 298 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

+ 266 There is one, and there is no second; yea, he has neither son nor brother, and there is no end to all his toil; neither is his eye sated from wealth. Now for whom do I toil and deprive my soul of pleasure? This too is vanity and an unhappy affair. Kohelet 4:8

+ 290 You saw the 1984 commercial. Macintosh was basically this relatively small company in Cupertino, California, taking on the goliath, IBM, and saying, 'Wait a minute, your way is wrong. This is not the way we want computers to go. This is not the legacy we want to leave. This is not what we want our kids to be learning. This is wrong and we are going to show you the right way to do it and here it is. It's called Macintosh and it is so much better. It's going to beat you and you're going to do it'.

+ 319 And [innovation] comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don't get on the wrong track or try to do too much. We're always thinking about new markets we could enter, but it's only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 2004

Picasso had a saying: 'Good artists copy, great artists steal.'

Song of Solomon 4:9


+ 325 Your love is so sweet, my sister, my bride.
Your love is better than wine,
and your perfume smells better than any spice.
Song of Solomon 4:10


+ 294 My bride, your lips drip honey;
honey and milk are under your tongue.
Your clothes smell like the cedars of Lebanon.
Song of Solomon 4:11


+ 308 My sister, my bride, you are like a garden locked up,
like a walled-in spring, a closed-up fountain.
Song of Solomon 4:12


+ 317 Your limbs are like an orchard
of pomegranates with all the best fruit,
filled with flowers and nard,
Song of Solomon 4:13


+ 246 Nard and saffron, calamus, and cinnamon,
with trees of incense, myrrh, and aloes— all the best spices.
Song of Solomon 4:14


+ 325 You are like a garden fountain— a well of fresh water flowing down from the mountains of Lebanon.
Song of Solomon 4:15


+ 323 Awake, north wind. Come, south wind.
Blow on my garden, and let its sweet smells flow out.
Let my lover enter the garden and eat its best fruits.
Song of Solomon 4:16


+ 319 My lover put his hand through the opening, and I felt excited inside.
Song of Solomon 5:4


+ 271 His hands are like gold hinges,
filled with jewels.
His body is like shiny ivory
covered with sapphires.
Song of Solomon 5:14


+ 314 My darling, you are as beautiful as the city of Tirzah,
as lovely as the city of Jerusalem,
like an army flying flags.
Song of Solomon 6:4


+ 278 Your neck is like an ivory tower.
Your eyes are like the pools in Heshbon near the gate of Bath Rabbim.
Your nose is like the mountain of Lebanon that looks down on Damascus.
Song of Solomon 7:4


+ 351 Women of Jerusalem,
promise not to awaken
or excite my feelings of love
until it is ready.
Song of Solomon 8:4


+ 384 Hurry, my lover,
be like a gazelle
or a young deer
on the mountains where spices grow.
Song of Solomon 8:14


+ 542 “Why aren't you in school? I see you every day wandering around." "Oh, they don't miss me," she said. "I'm antisocial, they say. I don't mix. It's so strange. I'm very social indeed. It all depends on what you mean by social, doesn't it? Social to me means talking to you about things like this." She rattled some chestnuts that had fallen off the tree in the front yard. "Or talking about how strange the world is. Being with people is nice. But I don't think it's social to get a bunch of people together and then not let them talk, do you? An hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running, another hour of transcription history or painting pictures, and more sports, but do you know, we never ask questions, or at least most don't; they just run the answers at you, bing, bing, bing, and us sitting there for four more hours of film-teacher. That's not social to me at all. It's a lot of funnels and lot of water poured down the spout and out the bottom, and them telling us it's wine when it's not. They run us so ragged by the end of the day we can't do anything but go to bed or head for a Fun Park to bully people around, break windowpanes in the Window Smasher place or wreck cars in the Car Wrecker place with the big steel ball. Or go out in the cars and race on the streets, trying to see how close you can get to lampposts, playing 'chicken' and 'knock hubcaps.' I guess I'm everything they say I am, all right. I haven't any friends. That's supposed to prove I'm abnormal. But everyone I know is either shouting or dancing around like wild or beating up one another. Do you notice how people hurt each other nowadays?” Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451


+ 295 I have read true piety defined as: loving one’s destiny unconditionally – and there is something in it. That is to say: I think that in a way this sort of “religiousness” is the condition for real happiness. Karen Blixen, Letters from Africa, 1914-1931


+ 324 At present, many of the ablest minds are trying to devise expedients for preventing a repetition of the awful conflict which is only theoretically ended and the duration and main issues of which I have correctly predicted in an article printed in the Sun of December 20, 1914. The proposed League is not a remedy but, on the contrary, in the opinion of a number of competent men, may bring about results just the opposite. It is particularly regrettable that a punitive policy was adopted in framing the terms of peace, because a few years hence, it will be possible for nations to fight without armies, ships or guns, by weapons far more terrible, to the destructive action and range of which there is virtually no limit. Any city, at a distance, whatsoever, from the enemy, can be destroyed by him and no power on earth can stop him from doing so. Nikola Tesla


+ 237 And God saw the light that it was good, and God separated between the light and between the darkness. Bereshit 1:4


+ 231 God said, There shall be lights in the heavenly sky to divide between day and night. They shall serve as omens and define festivals, days and years. Bereshit 1:14


+ 222 God said, The earth shall bring forth particular species of living creatures, particular species of livestock, land animals, and beasts of the earth. It happened. Bereshit 1:24


+ 191 These are the chronicles of heaven and earth when they were created, on the day God completed earth and heaven. Bereshit 2:4


+ 189 The name of the third river is the Tigris which flows to the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates. Bereshit 2:14


+ 177 A man shall therefore leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Bereshit 2:24


+ 159 The serpent said to the woman, You will certainly not die! Bereshit 3:4


+ 216 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


+ 232 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


+ 190 The man knew his wife Eve. She conceived and gave birth to Cain. She said, I have gained a man with God. Bereshit 4:1


+ 182 She gave birth again, this time to his brother Abel. Abel became a shepherd, while Cain was a worker of the soil. Bereshit 4:2


+ 165 An era ended. Cain brought some of his crops as an offering to God. Bereshit 4:3


+ 195 Abel also offered some of the firstborn of his flock, from the fattest ones. God paid heed to Abel and his offering, Bereshit 4:4


+ 180 but to Cain and his offering, He paid no heed. Cain became very furious and depressed. Bereshit 4:5


+ 177 God said to Cain, Why are you so furious? Why are you depressed? Bereshit 4:6


+ 175 If you do good, will there not be special privilege? And if you do not do good, sin is crouching at the door. It lusts after you, but you can dominate it. Bereshit 4:7


+ 214 Cain said something to his brother Abel. Then, when they happened to be in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him. Bereshit 4:8


+ 207 God asked Cain, Where is your brother Abel? I do not know, replied Cain. Am I my brother's keeper? Bereshit 4:9


+ 177 God said, What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is screaming to Me from the ground. Bereshit 4:10


+ 194 Now you are cursed from the ground that opened its mouth to take your brother's blood from your hand. Bereshit 4:11


+ 203 When you work the ground, it will no longer give you of its strength. You will be restless and isolated in the world. Bereshit 4:12


+ 167 Cain said, My sin is too great to bear! Bereshit 4:13


+ 241 Behold, today You have banished me from the face of the earth, and I am to be hidden from Your face. I am to be restless and isolated in the world, and whoever finds me will kill me. Bereshit 4:14


+ 199 God said to him, Indeed! Whoever kills Cain will be punished seven times as much. God placed a mark on Cain so that whoever would find him would not kill him. Bereshit 4:15


+ 183 Cain went out from before God's presence. He settled in the land of Nod, to the east of Eden. Bereshit 4:16

+ 257 His brother's name was Yuval. He was the ancestor of all who play the harp and flute. Bereshit 4:21


+ 187 Tzillah also had a son, Tuval Cain, a maker of all copper and iron implements. Tuval Cain's sister was Naamah. Bereshit 4:22


+ 202 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


+ 197 If Cain shall be revenged seven times, then for Lemekh it shall be seventy-seven times. Bereshit 4:24


+ 207 Adam knew his wife again, and she gave birth to a son. She named him Seth - Because God has granted (shath) me other offspring in place of Abel, whom Cain had killed. Bereshit 4:25


+ 206 A son was also born to Seth, and Seth named him Enosh. It was then initiated to pray with God's name. Bereshit 4:26


+ 179 Adam lived 800 years after he had Seth, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:4


+ 181 Kenan lived 840 years after he had Mahalalel, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:13

+ 154 Enoch walked with God, and he was no more, because God had taken him. Bereshit 5:24

+ 181 Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with compartments, and you shall caulk it both inside and outside with pitch. Bereshit 6:14


+ 201 For in another seven days, I will make it rain upon the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will blot out all beings that I have made, off the face of the earth. Bereshit 7:4


+ 165 They, and every beast after its kind, and every domestic animal after its kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every fowl after its kind, every bird of every wing. Bereshit 7:14


+ 176 And the water prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days. Bereshit 7:24


+ 161 And the ark came to rest in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. Bereshit 8:4


+ 170 And in the second month, on the twenty seventh day of the month, the earth was dry. Bereshit 8:14


+ 181 But, flesh with its soul, its blood, you shall not eat. Bereshit 9:4


+ 175 And it shall come to pass, when I cause clouds to come upon the earth, that the rainbow will appear in the cloud. Bereshit 9:14


+ 209 And Noah awoke from his wine, and he knew what his small son had done to him. Bereshit 9:24


+ 177 And the sons of Javan were Elishah and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. Bereshit 10:4


+ 182 And the Pathrusim and the Casluhim, from whom the Philistines emerged, and the Caphtorim. Bereshit 10:14

+ 178 And Shelah lived thirty years, and he begot Eber. Bereshit 11:14


+ 181 And Nahor lived twenty nine years, and he begot Terah. Bereshit 11:24


+ 190 And Abram went, as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him, and Abram was seventy five years old when he left Haran. Bereshit 12:4


+ 170 And it came to pass when Abram came to Egypt, that the Egyptians saw the woman, that she was very pretty. Bereshit 12:14


+ 167 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


+ 221 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


+ 169 Now it came to pass in the days of Amraphel the king of Shinar, Arioch the king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and Tidal the king of Goyim. Bereshit 14:1


+ 185 That they waged war with Bera the king of Sodom and with Birsha the king of Gomorrah, Shineab the king of Admah, and Shemeber the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar. Bereshit 14:2


+ 174 All these joined in the valley of Siddim, which is the Dead Sea. Bereshit 14:3


+ 162 For twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and for thirteen years they rebelled. Bereshit 14:4


+ 217 And in the fourteenth year, Chedorlaomer came, and the kings who were with him, and they smote the Rephaim in Ashteroth Karnaim and the Zuzim in Ham, and the Emim in Shaveh Kiriathaim. Bereshit 14:5


+ 178 And the Horites in their mountain Seir, until the plain of Paran, which is alongside the desert. Bereshit 14:6


+ 209 And they returned and came to Ein Mishpat, which is Kadesh, and they smote the entire field of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites who dwelt in Hazezon Tamar. Bereshit 14:7


+ 206 And the king of Sodom and the king of Gomorrah and the king of Admah and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar, came forth, and they engaged them in battle in the valley of Siddim. Bereshit 14:8


+ 203 With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam and Tidal the king of Goyim and Amraphel the king of Shinar and Arioch the king of Ellasar, four kings against the five. Bereshit 14:9


+ 221 Now the valley of Siddim was composed of many clay pits, and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled and they fell there, and the survivors fled to a mountain. Bereshit 14:10


+ 186 And they took all the possessions of Sodom and Gomorrah and all their food, and they departed. Bereshit 14:11


+ 186 And they took Lot and his possessions, the son of Abram's brother, and they departed, and he was living in Sodom. Bereshit 14:12


+ 178 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


+ 237 And Abram heard that his kinsman had been taken captive, and he armed his trained men, those born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and he pursued them until Dan. Bereshit 14:14


+ 205 And he divided himself against them at night, he and his servants, and smote them, and pursued them until Hobah, which is to the left of Damascus. Bereshit 14:15


+ 186 And he restored all the possessions, and also Lot his brother and his possessions he restored, and also the women and the people. Bereshit 14:16

+ 194 And Malchizedek the king of Salem brought out bread and wine, and he was a priest to the Most High God. Bereshit 14:18


+ 163 And he blessed him, and he said, Blessed be Abram to the Most High God, Who possesses heaven and earth. Bereshit 14:19


+ 177 And blessed be the Most High God, Who has delivered your adversaries into your hand, and he gave him a tithe from all. Bereshit 14:20


+ 186 And the king of Sodom said to Abram, Give me the souls, and the possessions take for yourself. Bereshit 14:21


+ 184 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I raise my hand to the Lord, the Most High God, Who possesses heaven and earth. Bereshit 14:22


+ 179 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


+ 205 Exclusive of what the lads ate, and the share of the men who went with me; Aner, Eshkol, and Mamre they shall take their share. Bereshit 14:24


+ 192 And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, This one will not inherit you, but the one who will spring from your innards-he will inherit you. Bereshit 15:4


+ 151 And also the nation that they will serve will I judge, and afterwards they will go forth with great possessions. Bereshit 15:14


+ 182 And he came to Hagar, and she conceived, and she saw that she was pregnant, and her mistress became unimportant in her eyes. Bereshit 16:4


+ 187 Therefore the well was called Be'er Lachai Ro'i; behold it is between Kadesh and between Bered. Bereshit 16:14


+ 181 As for Me, behold My covenant is with you, and you shall become the father of a multitude of nations. Bereshit 17:4


+ 209 And an uncircumcised male, who will not circumcise the flesh of his foreskin-that soul will be cut off from its people; he has broken My covenant. Bereshit 17:14


+ 204 And Abraham was ninety-nine years old, when he was circumcised of the flesh of his foreskin. Bereshit 17:24


+ 179 Please let a little water be taken, and bathe your feet, and recline under the tree. Bereshit 18:4


+ 197 Is anything hidden from the Lord? At the appointed time, I will return to you, at this time next year and Sarah will have a son. Bereshit 18:14


+ 180 Perhaps there are fifty righteous men in the midst of the city; will You even destroy and not forgive the place for the sake of the fifty righteous men who are in its midst? Bereshit 18:24


+ 173 When they had not yet retired, and the people of the city, the people of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old, the entire populace from every end of the city. Bereshit 19:4


+ 210 So Lot went forth and spoke to his sons-in-law, the suitors of his daughters, and he said, Arise, go forth from this place, for the Lord is destroying the city, but he seemed like a comedian in the eyes of his sons-in-law. Bereshit 19:14


+ 179 And the Lord caused to rain down upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire, from the Lord, from heaven. Bereshit 19:24


+ 206 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


+ 178 And Abimelech had not come near to her, and he said, O Lord, will You kill even a righteous nation? Bereshit 20:4


+ 209 And Abimelech took flocks and cattle and menservants and maidservants, and he gave them to Abraham, and he restored to him his wife Sarah. Bereshit 20:14


+ 198 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. Bereshit 21:4


+ 212 And Abraham arose early in the morning, and he took bread and a leather pouch of water, and he gave them to Hagar, he placed them on her shoulder, and the child, and he sent her away; and she went and wandered in the desert of Beer sheba. Bereshit 21:14


+ 181 And Abraham said, I will swear. Bereshit 21:24


+ 179 And Abraham dwelt in the land of the Philistines for many days. Bereshit 21:34


+ 177 On the third day, Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from afar. Bereshit 22:4


+ 195 And Abraham named that place, The Lord will see, as it is said to this day: On the mountain, the Lord will be seen. Bereshit 22:14


+ 175 And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, had also given birth to Tebah and Gaham and Tahash and Maacah. Bereshit 22:24


+ 166 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


+ 170 And Ephron replied to Abraham, saying to him, Bereshit 23:14


+ 179 And Abraham was old, advanced in days, and the Lord had blessed Abraham with everything. Bereshit 24:1


+ 208 And Abraham said to his servant, the elder of his house, who ruled over all that was his, Please place your hand under my thigh. Bereshit 24:2


+ 192 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


+ 304 But you shall go to my land and to my birthplace, and you shall take a wife for my son, for Isaac. Bereshit 24:4


+ 182 And the servant said to him, Perhaps the woman will not wish to go after me to this land. Shall I return your son to the land from which you came? Bereshit 24:5


+ 177 And Abraham said to him, Beware, lest you return my son back there. Bereshit 24:6


+ 234 The Lord, God of the heavens, Who took me from my father's house and from the land of my birth, and Who spoke about me, and Who swore to me, saying, To your seed will I give this land He will send His angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. Bereshit 24:7


+ 198 And if the woman will not wish to go after you, you will be absolved of this, my oath; only do not return my son back there. Bereshit 24:8


+ 157 And the servant placed his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and he swore to him concerning this matter. Bereshit 24:9


+ 208 And the servant took ten camels of his master's camels, and he went, and all the best of his master was in his hand; and he arose, and he went to Aram naharaim, to the city of Nahor. Bereshit 24:10


+ 171 And he made the camels kneel outside the city beside the well of water, at eventide, at the time the maidens go out to draw water. Bereshit 24:11


+ 204 And he said, O Lord, the God of my master Abraham, please cause to happen to me today, and perform loving kindness with my master, Abraham. Bereshit 24:12


+ 181 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


+ 207 And it will be, that the maiden to whom I will say, Lower your pitcher and I will drink, and she will say, Drink, and I will also water your camels, her have You designated for Your servant, for Isaac, and through her may I know that You have performed loving kindness with my master. Bereshit 24:14


+ 211 Now he had not yet finished speaking, and behold, Rebecca came out, who had been born to Bethuel the son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, and her pitcher was on her shoulder. Bereshit 24:15


+ 199 Now the maiden was of very comely appearance, a virgin, and no man had been intimate with her, and she went down to the fountain, and she filled her pitcher and went up. Bereshit 24:16


+ 180 And the servant ran toward her, and he said, Please let me sip a little water from your pitcher. Bereshit 24:17


+ 186 And she said, Drink, my lord. And she hastened and lowered her pitcher to her hand, and she gave him to drink. Bereshit 24:18


+ 186 And she finished giving him to drink, and she said, I will also draw for your camels, until they will have finished drinking. Bereshit 24:19


+ 191 And she hastened, and she emptied her pitcher into the trough, and she ran again to the well to draw water, and she drew for all his camels. Bereshit 24:20


+ 191 And the man was astonished at her, standing silent, waiting to know whether the Lord had caused his way to prosper or not. Bereshit 24:21


+ 215 Now it came about, when the camels had finished drinking, that the man took a golden nose ring, weighing half a shekel, and two bracelets for her hands, weighing ten gold shekels. Bereshit 24:22


+ 175 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


+ 178 And she said to him, I am the daughter of Bethuel, the son of Milcah, whom she bore to Nahor. Bereshit 24:24


+ 186 And she said to him, Both straw and fodder are plentiful with us; there is also a place to lodge. Bereshit 24:25


+ 165 And the man kneeled and prostrated himself to the Lord. Bereshit 24:26


+ 210 And he said, Blessed is the Lord, the God of my master, Abraham, Who has not forsaken His loving kindness and His truth from my master. As for me, the Lord led me on the road to the house of my master's kinsmen. Bereshit 24:27


+ 165 And the maiden ran, and she told her mother's house what had happened. Bereshit 24:28


+ 166 Now Rebecca had a brother whose name was Laban, and Laban ran to the man outside, to the fountain. Bereshit 24:29


+ 222 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


+ 166 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


+ 183 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


+ 184 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


+ 179 And he said, I am Abraham's servant. Bereshit 24:34


+ 223 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


+ 190 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


+ 205 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


+ 180 Instead, you must go to my father's house and to my family, and take a wife for my son. Bereshit 24:38


+ 176 And I said to my master, Perhaps the woman will not follow me? Bereshit 24:39


+ 203 And he said to me, The Lord, before Whom I walked, will send His angel with you and make your way prosper, and you shall take a wife for my son from my family and from my father's house. Bereshit 24:40


+ 185 You will then be absolved from my oath, when you come to my family, and if they do not give her to you, you will be absolved from my oath. Bereshit 24:41


+ 224 So I came today to the fountain, and I said, O Lord, God of my master Abraham, if You desire to prosper my way upon which I am going Bereshit 24:42


+ 203 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


+ 207 And if she will say to me, You too may drink, and I will also draw water for your camels, she is the woman whom the Lord has designated for my master's son. Bereshit 24:44


+ 197 I had not yet finished speaking thus in my heart, and behold, Rebecca came out with her pitcher on her shoulder, and she went down to the fountain and drew water, and I said to her, Please give me to drink. Bereshit 24:45


+ 188 And she hastened and lowered her pitcher from upon her, and she said, Drink, and I will also water your camels. So I drank, and she also watered the camels. Bereshit 24:46


+ 214 And I asked her, and I said, Whose daughter are you? And she replied, The daughter of Bethuel the son of Nahor, whom Milcah bore to him. And I placed the nose ring on her nose and the bracelets on her hands. Bereshit 24:47


+ 201 And I kneeled and prostrated myself to the Lord, and I blessed the Lord, the God of my master Abraham, Who led me on the true path, to take the daughter of my master's brother for his son. Bereshit 24:48


+ 184 And now, if you will do loving kindness and truth with my master, tell me, and if not, tell me, and I will turn to the right or to the left. Bereshit 24:49


+ 186 And Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The matter has emanated from the Lord. We cannot speak to you either bad or good. Bereshit 24:50


+ 147 Behold Rebecca is before you, take her and go, and let her be a wife for your master's son, as the Lord has spoken. Bereshit 24:51


+ 265 Now it came to pass when Abraham's servant heard their words, that he prostrated himself on the ground to the Lord. Bereshit 24:52


+ 190 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


+ 197 And they ate and drank, he and the men who were with him, and they lodged, and they arose in the morning, and he said, Send me away to my master. Bereshit 24:54


+ 192 And her brother and her mother said, Let the maiden stay with us a year or ten months; afterwards she will go. Bereshit 24:55


+ 182 But he said to them, Do not delay me, since the Lord has made my way prosper. Send me away, and I will go to my master. Bereshit 24:56


+ 165 And they said, Let us call the maiden and ask her. Bereshit 24:57


+ 185 And they summoned Rebecca, and they said to her, Will you go with this man? And she said, I will go. Bereshit 24:58


+ 198 So they sent away Rebecca their sister and her nurse and Abraham's servant and his men. Bereshit 24:59


+ 184 And they blessed Rebecca and said to her, Our sister, may you become thousands of myriads, and may your seed inherit the cities of their enemies. Bereshit 24:60


+ 166 And Rebecca and her maidens arose and rode on the camels, and they followed the man; and the servant took Rebecca and left. Bereshit 24:61


+ 180 Now Isaac was on his way, coming from Be'er Lachai Ro'i, and he dwelt in the land of the south. Bereshit 24:62


+ 178 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


+ 200 And Rebecca lifted her eyes, and saw Isaac, and she let herself down from the camel. Bereshit 24:64


+ 181 And she said to the servant, Who is that man walking in the field towards us? And the servant said, He is my master. And she took the veil and covered herself. Bereshit 24:65


+ 173 And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. Bereshit 24:66


+ 216 And Isaac brought her to the tent of Sarah his mother, and he took Rebecca, and she became his wife, and he loved her. And Isaac was comforted for the loss of his mother. Bereshit 24:67


+ 216 And the sons of Midian were Ephah and Epher and Enoch and Abida and Elda'ah; all these were the sons of Keturah. Bereshit 25:4


+ 155 And Mishma and Dumah and Massa, Bereshit 25:14


+ 157 And her days to give birth were completed, and behold, there were twins in her womb. Bereshit 25:24


+ 178 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


+ 193 And I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and I will give your seed all these lands, and all the nations of the earth will bless themselves by your seed, Bereshit 26:4


+ 180 And he had possessions of sheep and possessions of cattle and much production, and the Philistines envied him. Bereshit 26:14


+ 195 And the Lord appeared to him on that night and said, I am the God of Abraham, your father. Fear not, for I am with you, and I will bless you and multiply your seed for the sake of Abraham, My servant. Bereshit 26:24


+ 158 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


+ 168 And make for me tasty foods as I like, and bring them to me, and I will eat, in order that my soul will bless you before I die. Bereshit 27:4


+ 172 So he went, and he took, and he brought them to his mother, and his mother made tasty foods, as his father liked. Bereshit 27:14


+ 163 And he said, Are you indeed my son Esau? And he said, I am. Bereshit 27:24


+ 184 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


+ 192 And you shall live by your sword, and you shall serve your brother, and it will be, when you grieve, that you will break his yoke off your neck. Bereshit 27:40


+ 218 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing that his father had blessed him, and Esau said to himself, Let the days of mourning for my father draw near, I will then kill my brother Jacob. Bereshit 27:41


+ 199 And Rebecca was told of the words of Esau, her elder son, and she sent and called Jacob, her younger son, and she said to him, "Behold, your brother Esau regrets his relationship to you and wishes to kill you. Bereshit 27:42


+ 175 And now, my son, hearken to my voice, and arise, flee to my brother Laban, to Haran. Bereshit 27:43


+ 172 And you shall dwell with him for a few days until your brother's wrath has subsided. Bereshit 27:44


+ 179 Until your brother's rage subsides from you, and he forgets what you did to him, and I will send and bring you from there. Why should I be bereft of both of you on one day? Bereshit 27:45


+ 221 And Rebecca said to Isaac, I am disgusted with my life because of the daughters of Heth. If Jacob takes a wife of the daughters of Heth like these, from the daughters of the land, of what use is life to me? Bereshit 27:46


+ 202 And may He give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your seed with you, that you may inherit the land of your sojournings, which God gave to Abraham. Bereshit 28:4


+ 199 And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall gain strength westward and eastward and northward and southward; and through you shall be blessed all the families of the earth and through your seed. Bereshit 28:14


+ 181 And Jacob said to them, My brothers, where are you from? And they said, We are from Haran. 29:4


+ 183 And Laban said to him, Indeed, you are my bone and my flesh. And so he stayed with him a full month. Bereshit 29:14


+ 160 And Laban gave Zilpah his maidservant to his daughter Leah as a maidservant. Bereshit 29:24


+ 207 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


+ 171 So she gave him her maidservant Bilhah for a wife, and Jacob came to her. Bereshit 30:4


+ 207 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


+ 194 So she named him Joseph, saying, May the Lord grant me yet another son! Bereshit 30:24


+ 190 And Laban said, Very well! If only it would be as you say! Bereshit 30:34


+ 222 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


+ 213 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


+ 217 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


+ 207 And the man became exceedingly wealthy, and he had prolific animals, and maidservants and manservants, and camels and donkeys. Bereshit 30:43


+ 186 So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field, to his flocks. Bereshit 31:4


+ 193 So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field, to his flocks. Bereshit 31:4


+ 175 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


+ 212 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


+ 204 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


+ 176 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


+ 189 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


+ 223 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


+ 219 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


+ 150 So now, come, let us form a covenant, you and I, and may He be a witness between me and you." Bereshit 31:44


+ 162 So Jacob took a stone and set it up as a monument. Bereshit 31:45


+ 177 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


+ 173 And Laban called it Yegar Sahadutha, but Jacob called it Gal ed. Bereshit 31:47


+ 176 And Laban said, This pile is a witness between me and you today. Therefore, he called it Gal ed. Bereshit 31:48


+ 142 And Mizpah, because he said, May the Lord look between me and you when we are hidden from each other. Bereshit 31:49


+ 185 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


+ 171 Jacob sent angels ahead of him to his brother Esau, to the land of Seir, the field of Edom. Bereshit 32:4


+ 166 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


+ 149 And he took them and brought them across the stream, and he took across what was his. Bereshit 32:24


+ 134 And Esau ran toward him and embraced him, and he fell on his neck and kissed him, and they wept. Bereshit 33:4


+ 173 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


+ 173 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


+ 147 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


+ 209 And his soul cleaved to Dinah the daughter of Jacob; he loved the girl and spoke to the girl's heart. Bereshit 34:3


+ 143 And Shechem spoke to his father Hamor saying, "Take this girl for me as a wife." Bereshit 34:4


+ 192 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


+ 173 And Hamor, the father of Shechem, went out to Jacob to speak with him. Bereshit 34:6


+ 202 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


+ 156 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


+ 165 And intermarry with us; you shall give us your daughters, and you shall take our daughters for yourselves. Bereshit 34:9


+ 150 And you shall dwell with us, and the land shall be before you; remain, do business there and settle there." Bereshit 34:10


+ 172 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


+ 151 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


+ 264 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


+ 177 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


+ 184 But with this, however, we will consent to you, if you will be like us, that every male will be circumcised. Bereshit 34:15


+ 163 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


+ 147 But if you do not listen to us to be circumcised, we will take our daughter and go. Bereshit 34:17


+ 158 Their words pleased Hamor and Shechem, the son of Hamor. Bereshit 34:18


+ 184 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


+ 146 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


+ 143 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


+ 155 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


+ 172 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


+ 154 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


+ 237 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


+ 143 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


+ 161 Jacob's sons came upon the slain and plundered the city that had defiled their sister. Bereshit 34:27


+ 165 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


+ 157 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


+ 221 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


+ 151 And they said, Shall he make our sister like a harlot? Bereshit 34:31


+ 197 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


+ 188 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


+ 146 The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin. Bereshit 35:24


+ 141 Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau and Basemath bore Reuel. Bereshit 36:4


+ 167 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


+ 164 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


+ 151 And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of the Temanites reigned in his stead. Bereshit 36:34


+ 165 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


+ 126 Chief Oholibamah, Chief Elah, Chief Pinon, Bereshit 36:41


+ 137 Chief Kenaz, Chief Teman, Chief Mibzar, Bereshit 36:42


+ 172 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


+ 205 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


+ 173 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


+ 145 And they took him and cast him into the pit; now the pit was empty there was no water in it. Bereshit 37:24


+ 200 And Jacob rent his garments, and he put sackcloth on his loins, and he mourned for his son many days. Bereshit 37:34


+ 136 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she named him Onan. Bereshit 38:4


+ 209 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


+ 202 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


+ 168 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


+ 146 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


+ 155 Now it came about after these events that the cupbearer of the king of Egypt and the baker sinned against their master, against the king of Egypt. Bereshit 40:1


+ 173 And Pharaoh became incensed at his two chamberlains, at the chief cupbearer and at the chief baker. Bereshit 40:2


+ 162 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


+ 166 And the chief of the slaughterers appointed Joseph to be with them, and he served them, and they were a year in prison. Bereshit 40:4


+ 165 Now both of them dreamed a dream, each one his dream on the same night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were confined in the prison. Bereshit 40:5


+ 140 And Joseph came to them in the morning, and he saw them and behold, they were troubled. Bereshit 40:6


+ 188 And he asked Pharaoh's chamberlains who were with him in the prison of his master's house, saying, Why are your faces sad today? Bereshit 40:7


+ 153 And they said to him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter for it. Joseph said to them, Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell them to me now. Bereshit 40:8


+ 148 So the chief cupbearer related his dream to Joseph, and he said to him, "In my dream, behold, a vine is before me. Bereshit 40:9


+ 183 And on the vine are three tendrils, and it seemed to be blossoming, and its buds came out; then its clusters ripened into grapes. Bereshit 40:10


+ 177 And Pharaoh's cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes and squeezed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I placed the cup on Pharaoh's palm. Bereshit 40:11


+ 145 And Joseph said to him, This is its meaning: the three tendrils are three days. Bereshit 40:12


+ 262 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


+ 166 But remember me when things go well with you, and please do me a favor and mention me to Pharaoh, and you will get me out of this house. Bereshit 40:14


+ 173 For I was stolen from the land of the Hebrews, and here too, I have done nothing, for which they have put me into the dungeon. Bereshit 40:15


+ 207 Now the chief baker saw that he had interpreted well. So he said to Joseph, Me too! In my dream, behold, there were three wicker baskets on my head. Bereshit 40:16


+ 167 And in the topmost basket were all kinds of Pharaoh's food, the work of a baker, and the birds were eating them from the basket atop my head. Bereshit 40:17


+ 148 And Joseph replied and said, This is its meaning: the three baskets represent three days. Bereshit 40:18


+ 186 In another three days, Pharaoh will remove your head from you and hang you on a gallows, and the birds will eat your flesh off you. Bereshit 40:19


+ 176 Now it came about on the third day, Pharaoh's birthday, that Pharaoh made a feast for all his servants, and he counted the chief cupbearer and chief baker among his servants. Bereshit 40:20


+ 171 And he restored the chief cupbearer to his position as cupbearer, and he placed the cup on Pharaoh's palm. Bereshit 40:21


+ 147 And the chief baker he hanged, as Joseph had interpreted to them. Bereshit 40:22


+ 159 But the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, and he forgot him. Bereshit 40:23


+ 150 It came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh was dreaming, and behold, he was standing by the Nile. Bereshit 41:1


+ 170 And behold, from the Nile were coming up seven cows, of handsome appearance and robust flesh, and they pastured in the marshland. Bereshit 41:2


+ 174 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


+ 161 And the cows of ugly appearance and lean of flesh devoured the seven cows that were of handsome appearance and healthy; then Pharaoh awoke. Bereshit 41:4


+ 166 And he fell asleep and dreamed again, and behold, seven ears of grain were growing on one stalk, healthy and good. Bereshit 41:5


+ 167 And behold, seven ears of grain, thin and beaten by the east wind, were growing up after them. Bereshit 41:6


+ 164 And the thin ears of grain swallowed up the seven healthy and full ears of grain; then Pharaoh awoke, and behold, a dream. Bereshit 41:7


+ 194 Now it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; so he sent and called all the necromancers of Egypt and all its sages, and Pharaoh related to them his dream, but no one interpreted them for Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:8


+ 150 Now the chief cupbearer spoke with Pharaoh, saying, I call to mind my faults today. Bereshit 41:9


+ 143 Pharaoh was angry with his servants, and he put me in prison, in the house of the chief slaughterer, me and the chief baker. Bereshit 41:10


+ 145 And we dreamed a dream on the same night, I and he; each one according to the interpretation of his dream, we dreamed. Bereshit 41:11


+ 132 And there with us was a Hebrew lad, a slave of the chief slaughterer, and we told him, and he interpreted our dreams for us; for each of us, he interpreted according to his dream. Bereshit 41:12


+ 145 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


+ 153 So Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they rushed him from the dungeon, and he shaved and changed his clothes, and he then came to Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:14


+ 198 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter for it, but I have heard it said of you that you understand a dream, to interpret it. Bereshit 41:15


+ 149 And Joseph replied to Pharaoh, saying, Not I; God will give an answer that will bring peace to Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:16


+ 148 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, In my dream, behold, I was standing on the bank of the Nile. Bereshit 41:17


+ 171 And behold, seven cows of robust flesh and handsome form were ascending from the Nile, and they pastured in the marshland. Bereshit 41:18


+ 188 And behold, seven other cows were ascending after them, emaciated and of very ugly form and with meager flesh; I have not seen such ugly ones throughout the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:19


+ 163 And the meager and ugly cows devoured the first seven healthy cows. Bereshit 41:20


+ 157 And they went inside them, but it was not known that they had gone inside of them, for their appearance was as ugly as in the beginning; then I awoke. Bereshit 41:21


+ 162 Then I saw in my dream, and behold, seven ears of grain were growing on one stalk, full and good. Bereshit 41:22


+ 151 And behold, seven ears of grain, hardened, thin, and beaten by the east wind, were growing up after them. Bereshit 41:23


+ 191 And the thin ears of grain swallowed up the seven good ears of grain; I told the necromancers, but no one tells me its meaning." Bereshit 41:24


+ 158 And Joseph said to Pharaoh, "Pharaoh's dream is one; what God is doing He has told Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:25


+ 150 The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good ears of grain are seven years; it is one dream. Bereshit 41:26


+ 170 And the seven meager and ugly cows coming up after them are seven years, and the seven empty ears of grain, beaten by the east wind, will be seven years of famine. Bereshit 41:27


+ 147 It is this matter that I have spoken to Pharaoh; what God is about to do He has shown Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:28


+ 139 Behold, seven years are coming, great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:29


+ 159 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


+ 153 And the plenty will not be known because of that famine to follow, for it will be very severe. Bereshit 41:31


+ 162 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


+ 146 So now, let Pharaoh seek out an understanding and wise man and appoint him over the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:33


+ 141 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


+ 157 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


+ 152 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


+ 176 The matter pleased Pharaoh and all his servants. Bereshit 41:37


+ 145 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


+ 171 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


+ 278 You shall be appointed over my household, and through your command all my people shall be nourished; only with the throne will I be greater than you. Bereshit 41:40


+ 163 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, Look, I have appointed you over the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:41


+ 180 And Pharaoh removed his ring from his hand and placed it on Joseph's hand, and he attired him with raiment of fine linen, and he placed the golden chain around his neck. Bereshit 41:42


+ 156 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


+ 167 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and besides you, no one may lift his hand or his foot in the entire land of Egypt." Bereshit 41:44


+ 166 And Pharaoh named Joseph Zaphenath Pa'neach, and he gave him Asenath the daughter of Poti phera, the governor of On, for a wife, and Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:45


+ 166 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and Joseph went out from before Pharaoh and passed through the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:46


+ 159 And in the seven years of plenty, the inhabitants of the land gathered food by handfuls. Bereshit 41:47


+ 171 And he collected all the food of the seven years that was in the land of Egypt, and he placed food in the cities, the food of the field surrounding the city, he put within it. Bereshit 41:48


+ 166 And Joseph gathered grain like the sand of the sea, in great abundance, until one stopped counting, because there was no number. Bereshit 41:49


+ 157 And to Joseph were born two sons before the year of the famine set in, whom Asenath the daughter of Poti phera, the governor of On, bore to him. Bereshit 41:50


+ 170 And Joseph named the firstborn Manasseh, for God has caused me to forget all my toil and all my father's house. Bereshit 41:51


+ 154 And the second one he named Ephraim, for "God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction." Bereshit 41:52


+ 146 And the seven years of plenty that were in the land of Egypt were finished. Bereshit 41:53


+ 172 And the seven years of famine began, as Joseph had said, and there was famine in all the lands, but throughout the land of Egypt there was bread. Bereshit 41:54


+ 173 When the entire land of Egypt hungered, the people cried out to Pharaoh for bread, but Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, "Go to Joseph; what he tells you, do." Bereshit 41:55


+ 189 Now the famine spread over all the face of the land, and Joseph opened all the storehouses in which there was grain, and he sold it to the Egyptians, and the famine intensified in the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:56


+ 151 And all the inhabitants of the land came to Egypt to Joseph to purchase, for the famine had intensified in the entire land. Bereshit 41:57


+ 172 Jacob saw that there was grain being sold in Egypt; so Jacob said to his sons, "Why do you appear satiated?" Bereshit 42:1


+ 166 And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is grain being sold in Egypt. Go down there and buy us some from there, so that we will live and not die. Bereshit 42:2


+ 143 So Joseph's ten brothers went down to buy grain from Egypt. Bereshit 42:3


+ 203 But Joseph's brother, Benjamin, Jacob did not send with his brothers, because, he said, Lest misfortune befall him. Bereshit 42:4


+ 168 So the sons of Israel came to purchase among those who came, for the famine was in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 42:5


+ 159 Now Joseph was the ruler over the land; it was he who sold grain to the entire populace of the land, and Joseph's brothers came and prostrated themselves to him, with their faces to the ground. Bereshit 42:6


+ 168 And Joseph saw his brothers, and he recognized them, but he made himself a stranger to them, and he spoke to them harshly, and he said to them, "Where do you come from?" And they said, "From the land of Canaan to purchase food." Bereshit 42:7


+ 136 Now Joseph recognized his brothers, but they did not recognize him. Bereshit 42:8


+ 150 And Joseph remembered the dreams that he had dreamed about them, and he said to them, "You are spies; you have come to see the nakedness of the land." Bereshit 42:9


+ 160 And they said to him, No, my master, your servants have come to buy food. Bereshit 42:10


+ 149 We are all sons of one man. We are honest. Your servants were never spies. Bereshit 42:11


+ 144 But he said to them, No! But you have come to see the nakedness of the land. Bereshit 42:12


+ 167 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


+ 154 And Joseph said to them, This is just what I have spoken to you, saying, You are spies. Bereshit 42:14


+ 177 With this you shall be tested: By Pharaoh's life, you shall not leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here. Bereshit 42:15


+ 157 Send one of you and let him fetch your brother, and you will be imprisoned so that your words will be tested whether truth is with you, and if not, as Pharaoh lives, you are spies!" Bereshit 42:16


+ 122 And he put them in prison for three days. Bereshit 42:17


+ 141 On the third day, Joseph said to them: "Do this and live I fear God. Bereshit 42:18


+ 154 If you are honest, your one brother will be confined in your prison, and you, go bring the grain for the hunger of your households. Bereshit 42:19


+ 146 And bring your youngest brother to me, so that your words may be verified, and you will not die." And they did so. Bereshit 42:20


+ 187 And they said to one another, "Indeed, we are guilty for our brother, that we witnessed the distress of his soul when he begged us, and we did not listen. That is why this trouble has come upon us." Bereshit 42:21


+ 157 And Reuben answered them, saying, Did not I tell you, saying, Do not sin against the lad, but you did not listen? Behold, his blood, too, is being demanded! Bereshit 42:22


+ 146 They did not know that Joseph understood, for the interpreter was between them. Bereshit 42:23


+ 157 And he turned away from them and wept, then returned to them and spoke to them; and he took Simeon from among them and imprisoned him before their eyes. Bereshit 42:24


+ 149 And Joseph commanded, and they filled their vessels with grain, and he commanded to return their money into each one's sack, and to give them provisions for the journey, and he did so for them. Bereshit 42:25


+ 156 And they loaded their grain upon their donkeys, and they went away from there. Bereshit 42:26


+ 163 The one opened his sack to give fodder to his donkey at the lodging place, and he saw his money there it was, in the mouth of his sack. Bereshit 42:27


+ 186 And he said to his brothers, My money has been returned, and indeed, here it is in my sack! Their hearts sank, and trembling, they turned to one another, saying, What is this that God has done to us? Bereshit 42:28


+ 181 And they came to Jacob their father, to the land of Canaan, and they told him all that had befallen them, saying, Bereshit 42:29


+ 125 The man, the lord of the land, spoke to us harshly, and he accused us of spying on the land. Bereshit 42:30


+ 133 And we said to him, We are honest; we were never spies. Bereshit 42:31


+ 150 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


+ 173 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


+ 162 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


+ 148 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


+ 193 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


+ 170 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


+ 193 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


+ 122 But the hunger was severe in the land. Bereshit 43:1


+ 150 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


+ 174 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


+ 133 If you send our brother with us, we will go down and buy food for you. Bereshit 43:4


+ 180 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


+ 160 And Israel said, Why have you harmed me, by telling the man that you have another brother? Bereshit 43:6


+ 173 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


+ 173 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


+ 148 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


+ 126 For had we not tarried, by now we would have already returned twice. Bereshit 43:10


+ 201 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


+ 164 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


+ 137 And take your brother, and get up, go back to the man. Bereshit 43:13


+ 166 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


+ 159 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


+ 165 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


+ 133 And the man did as Joseph had said, and the man brought the men into Joseph's house. Bereshit 43:17


+ 196 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


+ 148 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


+ 141 And they said, Please, my lord, we came down at first to purchase food. Bereshit 43:20


+ 155 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


+ 132 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


+ 157 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


+ 180 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


+ 146 And they prepared the gift until Joseph would come at lunchtime, for they heard that there they would eat bread. Bereshit 43:25


+ 145 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


+ 156 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


+ 155 And they said, Your servant, our father, is well; he is still alive. And they bowed and prostrated themselves. Bereshit 43:28


+ 173 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


+ 153 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


+ 132 And he washed his face and came out, and he restrained himself and said, "Serve the food." Bereshit 43:31


+ 153 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


+ 129 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


+ 159 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


+ 155 Then he commanded the overseer of his house, saying, "Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put each man's money into the mouth of his sack. Bereshit 44:1


+ 155 And my goblet, the silver goblet, put into the mouth of the sack of the youngest, and his purchase money." And he did according to Joseph's word, which he had spoken. Bereshit 44:2


+ 160 The morning became light, and the men were sent on their way they and their donkeys. Bereshit 44:3


+ 153 They had exited the city, but had not gone far when Joseph said to the overseer of his house, "Get up, pursue the men, and when you overtake them, say to them, 'Why have you repaid good with evil? Bereshit 44:4


+ 150 Is not this the one my master drinks from? Why, he even divines with it! You have done evil by the way you have acted.' " Bereshit 44:5


+ 136 He overtook them, and he said these words to them. Bereshit 44:6


+ 162 And they said to him, Why should my master say such words as these? Far be it from your servants to do a thing like this! Bereshit 44:7


+ 168 Behold, the money we found in the mouth of our sacks we returned to you from the land of Canaan; so how could we steal from your master's house silver or gold? Bereshit 44:8


+ 157 Whichever one of your servants with whom it is found shall die, and also we will be slaves to my master. Bereshit 44:9


+ 159 And he said, Now indeed, so it is as you have spoken. But the one with whom it is found shall be my slave, and you shall be cleared. Bereshit 44:10


+ 162 So they hastened, and each one lowered his sack to the ground, and each one opened his sack. Bereshit 44:11


+ 168 He searched; he started with the eldest and finished with the youngest, and the goblet was found in Benjamin's sack. Bereshit 44:12


+ 137 So they rent their garments, and each one loaded his donkey, and they returned to the city. Bereshit 44:13


+ 156 And Judah and his brothers came to Joseph's house, and he was still there, and they fell before him upon the ground. Bereshit 44:14


+ 178 And Joseph said to them, What is this deed that you have committed? Don't you know that a person like me practices divination? Bereshit 44:15


+ 184 And Judah said, What shall we say to my master? What shall we speak, and how shall we exonerate ourselves? God has found your servants iniquity both we and the one in whose possession the goblet has been found. Bereshit 44:16


+ 164 But he said, Far be it from me to do this! The man in whose possession the goblet was found he shall be my slave, but as for you go up in peace to your father. Bereshit 44:17


+ 180 Then Judah approached him and said, Please, my lord, let now your servant speak something into my lord's ears, and let not your wrath be kindled against your servant, for you are like Pharaoh. Bereshit 44:18


+ 141 My lord asked his servants, saying, 'Have you a father or a brother?' Bereshit 44:19


+ 300 And we said to my lord, 'We have an old father and a young child of his old age, and his brother is dead, and he is left alone of his mother, and his father loves him.' Bereshit 44:20


+ 167 And you said to your servants, Bring him down to me, and I will set my eyes upon him. Bereshit 44:21


+ 179 And we said to my lord, The boy cannot leave his father, for if he leaves his father, he will die. Bereshit 44:22


+ 171 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


+ 162 And it came to pass when we went up to your servant, my father, and we told him the words of my lord, Bereshit 44:24


+ 135 That our father said, Go back, buy us a little food. Bereshit 44:25


+ 173 But we said, 'We cannot go down; only if our youngest brother is with us will we go down, for we cannot see the man's face if our youngest brother is not with us.' Bereshit 44:26


+ 151 And your servant, my father, said to us, 'You know that my wife bore me two children. Bereshit 44:27


+ 163 The one went away from me, and I said, "He has surely been torn to pieces, and I have not seen him since." Bereshit 44:28


+ 179 Now if you take this one too away from me, and misfortune befalls him, you will bring down my hoary head in misery to the grave.' Bereshit 44:29


+ 148 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


+ 143 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


+ 156 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


+ 171 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


+ 183 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


+ 195 Now Joseph could not bear all those standing beside him, and he called out, "Take everyone away from me!" So no one stood with him when Joseph made himself known to his brothers. Bereshit 45:1


+ 137 And he wept out loud, so the Egyptians heard, and the house of Pharaoh heard. Bereshit 45:2


+ 186 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


+ 167 Then Joseph said to his brothers, Please come closer to me, and they drew closer. And he said, I am your brother Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt. Bereshit 45:4


+ 148 But now do not be sad, and let it not trouble you that you sold me here, for it was to preserve life that God sent me before you. Bereshit 45:5


+ 185 For already two years of famine have passed in the midst of the land, and for another five years, there will be neither plowing nor harvest. Bereshit 45:6


+ 153 And God sent me before you to make for you a remnant in the land, and to preserve it for you for a great deliverance. Bereshit 45:7


+ 172 And now, you did not send me here, but God, and He made me a father to Pharaoh, a lord over all his household, and a ruler over the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 45:8


+ 156 Hasten and go up to my father, and say to him, So said your son, Joseph: God has made me a lord over all the Egyptians. Come down to me, do not tarry. Bereshit 45:9


+ 142 And you shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near to me, you and your children and your grandchildren, and your flocks and your cattle and all that is yours. Bereshit 45:10


+ 192 And I will sustain you there for there are still five years of famine lest you become impoverished, you and your household and all that is yours. Bereshit 45:11


+ 163 And behold, your eyes see, as well as the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth speaking to you. Bereshit 45:12


+ 156 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


+ 165 And he fell on his brother Benjamin's neck and wept, and Benjamin wept on his neck. Bereshit 45:14


+ 245 And he kissed all his brothers and wept over them, and afterwards his brothers spoke with him. Bereshit 45:15


+ 157 And the voice was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, "Joseph's brothers have come!" And it pleased Pharaoh and his servants. Bereshit 45:16


+ 153 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Tell your brothers, Do this load up your beasts and go, enter the land of Canaan. Bereshit 45:17


+ 165 And take your father and your households and come to me, and I will give you the best of the land of Egypt, and you will eat the fat of the land. Bereshit 45:18


+ 175 And Joseph have been commanded to tell them, Do this: take yourselves wagons from the land of Egypt for your young children and for your wives, and you shall carry your father and come. Bereshit 45:19


+ 151 And let your eye not be concerned about your utensils, for the best of all the land of Egypt is yours. Bereshit 45:20


+ 184 And the sons of Israel did so, and Joseph gave them wagons by Pharaoh's orders, and he gave them provisions for the way. Bereshit 45:21


+ 138 He gave them all, to each one several changes of clothes, and to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver and five changes of clothes. Bereshit 45:22


+ 164 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


+ 165 And he sent off his brothers, and they went, and he said to them, Do not quarrel on the way. Bereshit 45:24


+ 158 So they went up from Egypt, and they came to the land of Canaan, to their father, Jacob. Bereshit 45:25


+ 165 And they told him, saying, Joseph is still alive, and they told him that he ruled over the entire land of Egypt, and his heart changed, for he did not believe them. Bereshit 45:26


+ 180 And they told him all of Joseph's words that he had said to them, and he saw the wagons that Joseph had sent to carry him, and the spirit of their father Jacob was revived. Bereshit 45:27


+ 166 And Israel said, Enough! My son Joseph is still alive. I will go and see him before I die. Bereshit 45:28


+ 183 And Israel and all that was his set out and came to Beer sheba, and he slaughtered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. Bereshit 46:1


+ 165 And God said to Israel in visions of the night, and He said, "Jacob, Jacob!" And he said, "Here I am." Bereshit 46:2


+ 157 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


+ 139 I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also bring you up, and Joseph will place his hand on your eyes. Bereshit 46:4


+ 206 And Jacob arose from Beer sheba, and the sons of Israel carried their father Jacob and their young children and their wives, in the wagons Pharaoh had sent to carry him. Bereshit 46:5


+ 199 And they took their livestock and their possessions that they had acquired in the land of Canaan, and they came to Egypt, Jacob and all his descendants with him. Bereshit 46:6


+ 139 His sons and his sons' sons with him, his daughters and his sons' daughters and all his descendants he brought with him to Egypt. Bereshit 46:7


+ 189 And these are the names of the children of Israel who were coming to Egypt: Jacob and his sons Jacob's firstborn was Reuben. Bereshit 46:8


+ 151 And the sons of Reuben were Hanoch and Pallu, Hezron and Carmi. Bereshit 46:9


+ 142 And the sons of Simeon were Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, and Zohar, and Saul the son of the Canaanitess. Bereshit 46:10


+ 150 And the sons of Levi were Gershon, Kehath, and Merari. Bereshit 46:11


+ 171 And the sons of Judah were Er, Onan, Shelah, Perez, and Zerah. Now Er and Onan had died in the land of Canaan; and the sons of Perez were Hezron and Hamul. Bereshit 46:12


+ 147 And the sons of Issachar were Tola, Puvvah, Iob, and Shimron. Bereshit 46:13


+ 137 And the sons of Zebulun were Sered, Elon, and Jahleel. Bereshit 46:14


+ 175 These are the sons of Leah, that she bore to Jacob in Padan Aram, and Dinah his daughter. All the souls of his sons and daughters were thirty three. Bereshit 46:15


+ 148 And the sons of Gad were Ziphion, Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, Arodi, and Areli. Bereshit 46:16


+ 165 And the sons of Asher were Imnah, Ishvah, Ishvi, and Briah, and Serah, their sister; and the sons of Briah were Heber and Malkiel. Bereshit 46:17


+ 215 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Leah, and she bore these to Jacob, sixteen souls. Bereshit 46:18


+ 160 The sons of Rachel, Jacob's wife, were Joseph and Benjamin. Bereshit 46:19


+ 159 And to Joseph were born in the land of Egypt, whom Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera, the governor of On, bore to him: Manasseh and Ephraim. Bereshit 46:20


+ 153 And the sons of Benjamin were Bela, Becher, Ashbel, Gera, Na'aman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, Huppim, and Ard. Bereshit 46:21


+ 143 These the sons of Rachel, who were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen. Bereshit 46:22


+ 124 And the sons of Dan: Hushim. Bereshit 46:23


+ 154 And the sons of Naphtali were Jahzeel, Guni, Jezer, and Shillem. Bereshit 46:24


+ 200 These are the sons of Bilhah, whom Laban had given to his daughter Rachel, and she bore these to Jacob, all the souls were seven. Bereshit 46:25


+ 180 All the souls coming to Egypt with Jacob, those descended from him, excluding the wives of Jacob's sons, all the souls were sixty six. Bereshit 46:26


+ 167 And Joseph's sons, who were born to him in Egypt, two souls; all the souls of the house of Jacob who came to Egypt were seventy. Bereshit 46:27


+ 221 He sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph, to direct him to Goshen, and they came to the land of Goshen. Bereshit 46:28


+ 153 And Joseph harnessed his chariot, and he went up to meet Israel his father, to Goshen, and he appeared to him, and he fell on his neck, and he wept on his neck for a long time. Bereshit 46:29


+ 160 And Israel said to Joseph, I will die this time, since I have seen your face, that you are still alive. Bereshit 46:30


+ 149 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


+ 176 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


+ 142 And if it comes to pass that Pharaoh calls you and asks, 'What is your occupation?' Bereshit 46:33


+ 194 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


+ 165 Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and he said, "My father and my brothers and their flocks and their cattle and all that is theirs, have come from the land of Canaan, and behold, they are in the land of Goshen." Bereshit 47:1


+ 147 And from among his brothers he took five men, and he presented them before Pharaoh. Bereshit 47:2


+ 163 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


+ 169 And they said to Pharaoh, We have come to sojourn in the land, for your servants flocks have no pasture, for the famine is severe in the land of Canaan. Now, please let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen. Bereshit 47:4


+ 141 And Pharaoh spoke to Joseph, saying, Your father and your brothers have come to you. Bereshit 47:5


+ 234 The land of Egypt is open before you; in the best of the land settle your father and your brothers. Let them dwell in the land of Goshen, and if you know that there are capable men among them, make them livestock officers over what is mine. Bereshit 47:6


+ 164 So Joseph brought his father Jacob and stood him before Pharaoh, and Jacob greeted Pharaoh. Bereshit 47:7


+ 175 And Pharaoh said to Jacob, How many are the days of the years of your life? Bereshit 47:8


+ 188 And Jacob said to Pharaoh, The days of the years of my sojournings are one hundred thirty years. The days of the years of my life have been few and miserable, and they have not reached the days of the years of the lives of my forefathers in the days of their sojournings. Bereshit 47:9


+ 158 So Jacob blessed Pharaoh and left Pharaoh's presence. Bereshit 47:10


+ 160 Joseph settled his father and his brothers, and he gave them property in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had mandated. Bereshit 47:11


+ 155 And Joseph sustained his father and his brothers and his father's entire household with bread according to the young children. Bereshit 47:12


+ 146 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


+ 156 And Joseph collected all the money that was found in the land of Egypt and in the land of Canaan with the grain that they were buying, and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house. Bereshit 47:14


+ 177 Now the money was depleted from the land of Egypt and from the land of Canaan, and all the Egyptians came to Joseph, saying, "Give us food; why should we die in your presence, since the money has been used up?" Bereshit 47:15


+ 151 And Joseph said, Give me your livestock, and I will give you food in return for your livestock, if the money has been used up. Bereshit 47:16


+ 159 So they brought their livestock to Joseph, and Joseph gave them food in return for the horses and for the livestock in flocks and in cattle and in donkeys, and he provided them with food in return for all their livestock in that year. Bereshit 47:17


+ 198 That year ended, and they came to him in the second year, and they said to him, We will not hide from my lord, for insofar as the money and the property in animals have been forfeited to my lord, nothing remains before my lord, except our bodies and our farmland. Bereshit 47:18


+ 194 Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our farmland? Buy us and our farmland for food, so that we and our farmland will be slaves to Pharaoh, and give us seed, so that we live and not die, and the soil will not lie fallow." Bereshit 47:19


+ 154 So Joseph bought all the farmland of the Egyptians for Pharaoh, for the Egyptians sold, each one his field, for the famine had become too strong for them, and the land became Pharaoh's. Bereshit 47:20


+ 124 And he transferred the populace to the cities, from one end of the boundary of Egypt to its other end. Bereshit 47:21


+ 156 Only the farmland of the priests he did not buy, for the priests had an allotment from Pharaoh, and they ate their allotment that Pharaoh had given them; therefore, they did not sell their farmland. Bereshit 47:22


+ 159 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


+ 183 And it shall be concerning the crops, that you shall give a fifth to Pharaoh, and the remaining four parts shall be yours: for seed for your fields, for your food, for those in your houses, and for your young children to eat." Bereshit 47:24


+ 163 They replied, You have saved our lives! Let us find favor in my lord's eyes, and we will be slaves to Pharaoh. Bereshit 47:25


+ 183 So Joseph made it a statute to this day concerning the farmland of Egypt for the one fifth. Only the farmland of the priests alone did not become Pharaoh's. Bereshit 47:26


+ 186 And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt in the land of Goshen, and they acquired property in it, and they were prolific and multiplied greatly. Bereshit 47:27


+ 201 And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt for seventeen years, and Jacob's days, the years of his life, were a hundred and forty seven years. Bereshit 47:28


+ 194 When the time drew near for Israel to die, he called his son Joseph and said to him, "If I have now found favor in your eyes, now place your hand beneath my thigh, and you shall deal with me with lovingkindness and truth; do not bury me now in Egypt. Bereshit 47:29


+ 165 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


+ 146 And he said, "Swear to me. " So he swore to him, and Israel prostrated himself on the head of the bed. Bereshit 47:31


+ 159 Now it came to pass after these incidents that someone said to Joseph, "Behold, your father is ill." So he took his two sons with him, Manasseh and Ephraim. Bereshit 48:1


+ 168 And someone told Jacob and said, Behold, your son Joseph is coming to you. And Israel summoned his strength and sat up on the bed. Bereshit 48:2


+ 192 And Jacob said to Joseph, "Almighty God appeared to me in Luz, in the land of Canaan, and He blessed me. Bereshit 48:3


+ 182 And He said to me, Behold, I will make you fruitful and cause you to multiply, and I will make you into a congregation of peoples, and I will give this land to your seed after you for an everlasting inheritance. Bereshit 48:4


+ 167 And now, as for your two sons, who were born to you in the land of Egypt, until I came to you, to the land of Egypt they are mine. Ephraim and Manasseh shall be mine like Reuben and Simeon. Bereshit 48:5


+ 153 But your children, if you beget any after them, shall be yours; by their brothers' names they shall be called in their inheritance. Bereshit 48:6


+ 173 As for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died to me in the land of Canaan on the way, when there was still a stretch of land to come to Ephrath, and I buried her there on the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem." Bereshit 48:7


+ 164 Then Israel saw Joseph's sons, and he said, "Who are these?" Bereshit 48:8


+ 161 Joseph said to his father, "They are my sons, whom God gave me here." So he said, "Now bring them near to me, so that I may bless them." Bereshit 48:9


+ 167 Now Israel's eyes had become heavy with age, to the extent that he could not see. So he drew them near to him, and he kissed them and embraced them. Bereshit 48:10


+ 183 And Israel said to Joseph, "I had not expected to see even your face, and behold, God has shown me your children too." Bereshit 48:11


+ 170 And Joseph took them out from upon his Jacob's knees, and he prostrated himself to the ground. Bereshit 48:12


+ 166 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


+ 190 But Israel stretched out his right hand and placed it on Ephraim's head, although he was the younger, and his left hand he placed on Manasseh's head. He guided his hands deliberately, for Manasseh was the firstborn. Bereshit 48:14


+ 186 And he blessed Joseph and said, God, before Whom my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, walked, God Who sustained me as long as I am alive, until this day, Bereshit 48:15


+ 213 May the angel who redeemed me from all harm bless the youths, and may they be called by my name and the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, and may they multiply abundantly like fish, in the midst of the land. Bereshit 48:16


+ 178 And Joseph saw that his father was placing his right hand on Ephraim's head, and it displeased him. So he held up his father's hand to remove it from upon Ephraim's head to place it on Manasseh's head. Bereshit 48:17


+ 140 And Joseph said to his father, "Not so, Father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head." Bereshit 48:18


+ 182 But his father refused, and he said, I know, my son, I know; he too will become a people, and he too will be great. But his younger brother will be greater than he, and his children's fame will fill the nations." Bereshit 48:19


+ 150 So he blessed them on that day, saying, With you, Israel will bless, saying, May God make you like Ephraim and like Manasseh, and he placed Ephraim before Manasseh. Bereshit 48:20


+ 197 And Israel said to Joseph, Behold, I am going to die, and God will be with you, and He will return you to the land of your forefathers. Bereshit 48:21


+ 146 And I have given you one portion over your brothers, which I took from the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow. Bereshit 48:22


+ 177 Jacob called for his sons and said, Gather and I will tell you what will happen to you at the end of days. Bereshit 49:1


+ 167 Gather and listen, sons of Jacob, and listen to Israel, your father. Bereshit 49:2


+ 141 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


+ 162 You have the restlessness of water; therefore, you shall not have superiority, for you ascended upon your father's couch; then you profaned Him Who ascended upon my bed. Bereshit 49:4


+ 139 Simeon and Levi are brothers; stolen instruments are their weapons. Bereshit 49:5


+ 169 Let my soul not enter their counsel; my honor, you shall not join their assembly, for in their wrath they killed a man, and with their will they hamstrung a bull. Bereshit 49:6


+ 187 Cursed be their wrath for it is mighty, and their anger because it is harsh. I will separate them throughout Jacob, and I will scatter them throughout Israel. Bereshit 49:7


+ 166 Judah, as for you, your brothers will acknowledge you. Your hand will be at the nape of your enemies, and your father's sons will prostrate themselves to you. Bereshit 49:8


+ 165 A cub and a grown lion is Judah. From the prey, my son, you withdrew. He crouched, rested like a lion, and like a lion, who will rouse him? Bereshit 49:9


+ 190 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the student of the law from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, and to him will be a gathering of peoples. Bereshit 49:10


+ 164 He binds his foal to a vine, and to a tendril he binds his young donkey. He launders his garment with wine, and with the blood of grapes binds his raiment. Bereshit 49:11


+ 129 He is red eyed from wine and white toothed from milk. Bereshit 49:12


+ 150 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


+ 135 Issachar is a bony donkey, lying between the boundaries. Bereshit 49:14


+ 165 He saw a resting place, that it was good, and the land, that it was pleasant, and he bent his shoulder to bear burdens, and he became an indentured laborer. Bereshit 49:15


+ 143 Dan will avenge his people, like one, the tribes of Israel. Bereshit 49:16


+ 156 Dan will be a serpent on the road, a viper on the path, which bites the horse's heels, so its rider falls backwards. Bereshit 49:17


+ 118 For Your salvation, I hope, O Lord! Bereshit 49:18


+ 129 As for Gad, a troop will troop forth from him, and it will troop back in its tracks. Bereshit 49:19


+ 137 From Asher will come rich food, and he will yield regal delicacies. Bereshit 49:20


+ 146 Naphtali is a swift gazelle; he is one who utters beautiful words. Bereshit 49:21


+ 125 A charming son is Joseph, a son charming to the eye; of the women, each one strode along to see him. Bereshit 49:22


+ 134 They heaped bitterness upon him and became quarrelsome; yea, archers despised him. Bereshit 49:23


+ 188 But his bow was strongly established, and his arms were gilded from the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob; from there he sustained the rock of Israel, Bereshit 49:24


+ 185 From the God of your father, and He will help you, and with the Almighty, and He will bless you with the blessings of the heavens above, the blessings of the deep, lying below, the blessings of father and mother. Bereshit 49:25


+ 214 The blessings of your father surpassed the blessings of my parents, the ends of the everlasting hills. May they come to Joseph's head and to the crown of the head of the one who was separated from his brothers. Bereshit 49:26


+ 153 Benjamin is a wolf, he will prey; in the morning he will devour plunder, and in the evening he will divide the spoil. Bereshit 49:27


+ 151 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them and blessed them; each man, according to his blessing, he blessed them. Bereshit 49:28


+ 163 And he commanded them and said to them, I will be brought in to my people; bury me with my fathers, in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite, Bereshit 49:29


+ 198 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


+ 153 There they buried Abraham and his wife Sarah, there they buried Isaac and his wife Rebecca, and there I buried Leah. Bereshit 49:31


+ 152 The purchase of the field and the cave therein was from the sons of Heth. Bereshit 49:32


+ 182 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


+ 166 When the days of his weeping had passed, Joseph spoke to Pharaoh's household, saying, If now I have found favor in your eyes, speak now in Pharaoh's ears, saying, Bereshit 50:4


+ 152 And Joseph returned to Egypt, he and his brothers, and all who had gone up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father. Bereshit 50:14


+ 226 Joseph said to his brothers, I am going to die; God will surely remember you and take you up out of this land to the land that He swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. Bereshit 50:24


+ 156 Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher. Shemot 1:4


+ 201 And they embittered their lives with hard labor, with clay and with bricks and with all kinds of labor in the fields, all their work that they worked with them with back breaking labor. Shemot 1:14


+ 151 His sister stood from afar, to know what would be done to him. Shemot 2:4


+ 193 And he retorted, Who made you a man, a prince, and a judge over us? Do you plan to slay me as you have slain the Egyptian? Moses became frightened and said, Indeed, the matter has become known! Shemot 2:14


+ 182 God heard their cry, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. Shemot 2:24


+ 155 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


+ 180 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


+ 177 Moses answered and said, Behold they will not believe me, and they will not heed my voice, but they will say, The Lord has not appeared to you. Shemot 4:1


+ 125 And the Lord said to him, What is this in your hand? And he said, A staff. Shemot 4:2


+ 119 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


+ 149 And the Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand and take hold of its tail. So Moses stretched forth his hand and grasped it, and it became a staff in his hand. Shemot 4:4


+ 218 In order that they believe that the Lord, the God of their forefathers, has appeared to you, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Shemot 4:5


+ 148 And the Lord said further to him, Now put your hand into your bosom, and he put his hand into his bosom, and he took it out, and behold, his hand was leprous like snow. Shemot 4:6


+ 169 And He said, Put your hand back into your bosom, and he put his hand back into his bosom, and when he took it out of his bosom, it had become again like the rest of his flesh. Shemot 4:7


+ 133 And it will come to pass, that if they do not believe you, and they do not heed the voice of the first sign, they will believe the voice of the last sign. Shemot 4:8


+ 149 And it will come to pass, if they do not believe either of these two signs, and they do not heed your voice, you shall take of the water of the Nile and spill it upon the dry land, and the water that you take from the Nile will become blood on the dry land." Shemot 4:9


+ 157 Moses said to the Lord, I beseech You, O Lord. I am not a man of words, neither from yesterday nor from the day before yesterday, nor from the time You have spoken to Your servant, for I am heavy of mouth and heavy of tongue. Shemot 4:10


+ 160 But the Lord said to him, Who gave man a mouth, or who makes one dumb or deaf or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Shemot 4:11


+ 147 So now, go! I will be with your mouth, and I will instruct you what you shall speak. Shemot 4:12


+ 143 But he said, I beseech You, O Lord, send now Your message with whom You would send. Shemot 4:13


+ 187 And the Lord's wrath was kindled against Moses, and He said, Is there not Aaron your brother, the Levite? I know that he will surely speak, and behold, he is coming forth toward you, and when he sees you, he will rejoice in his heart. Shemot 4:14


+ 155 You shall speak to him, and you shall put the words into his mouth, and I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will instruct you both what you shall do. Shemot 4:15


+ 138 And he will speak for you to the people, and it will be that he will be your speaker, and you will be his leader. Shemot 4:16


+ 152 And you shall take this staff in your hand, with which you shall perform the signs. Shemot 4:17


+ 202 Moses went and returned to Jether, his father in law, and he said to him, Let me go now and return to my brothers who are in Egypt, and let me see whether they are still alive. So Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace. Shemot 4:18


+ 171 The Lord said to Moses in Midian, Go, return to Egypt, for all the people who sought your life have died. Shemot 4:19


+ 152 So Moses took his wife and his sons, mounted them upon the donkey, and he returned to the land of Egypt, and Moses took the staff of God in his hand. Shemot 4:20


+ 181 The Lord said to Moses, When you go to return to Egypt, see all the signs that I have placed in your hand and perform them before Pharaoh, but I will strengthen his heart, and he will not send out the people. Shemot 4:21


+ 143 And you shall say to Pharaoh, So said the Lord, My firstborn son is Israel. Shemot 4:22


+ 151 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


+ 139 Now he was on the way, in an inn, that the Lord met him and sought to put him to death. Shemot 4:24


+ 150 So Zipporah took a sharp stone and severed her son's foreskin and cast it to his feet, and she said, For you are a bridegroom of blood to me. Shemot 4:25


+ 147 So He released him. Then she said, A bridegroom of blood concerning the circumcision. Shemot 4:26


+ 145 The Lord said to Aaron, Go toward Moses, to the desert. So he went and met him on the mount of God, and he kissed him. Shemot 4:27


+ 156 And Moses told Aaron all the words of the Lord with which he had sent him and all the signs that He had commanded him. Shemot 4:28


+ 151 So Moses and Aaron went, and they assembled all the elders of the children of Israel. Shemot 4:29


+ 152 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


+ 173 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


+ 171 But the king of Egypt said to them, Why, Moses and Aaron, do you disturb the people from their work? Go to your own labors. Shemot 5:4


+ 179 And the officers of the children of Israel whom Pharaoh's taskmasters had appointed over them were beaten, saying, Why have you not completed your quota to make bricks like the day before yesterday, neither yesterday nor today? Shemot 5:14


+ 150 And also, I established My covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their sojournings in which they sojourned. Shemot 6:4


+ 162 These following are the heads of the fathers' houses: The sons of Reuben, Israel's firstborn: Enoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Karmi, these are the families of Reuben. Shemot 6:14


+ 146 And the sons of Korah were Assir, Elkanah and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korahites. Shemot 6:24


+ 168 But Pharaoh will not hearken to you, and I will lay My hand upon the Egyptians, and I will take My legions, My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt with great judgments. Shemot 7:4


+ 150 The Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh's heart is heavy; he has refused to let the people out. Shemot 7:14


+ 151 All the Egyptians dug around the Nile for water to drink because they could not drink from the water of the Nile. Shemot 7:24


+ 206 Thereupon, Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron, and said, Entreat the Lord that He remove the frogs from me and from my people, and I will let out the people of Israel so that they may sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 8:4


+ 143 And the necromancers did likewise with their secret rites to bring out the lice, but they could not, and the lice were upon man and beast. Shemot 8:14


+ 168 Pharaoh said, I will let you go out, and you will sacrifice to the Lord, your God, in the desert, but do not go far away; entreat Him on my behalf. Shemot 8:24


+ 155 And the Lord will make a separation between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt, and nothing of the children of Israel will die. Shemot 9:4


+ 186 Because this time, I am sending all My plagues into your heart and into your servants and into your people, in order that you know that there is none like Me in the entire earth. Shemot 9:14


+ 162 And there was hail, and fire flaming within the hail, very heavy, the likes of which had never been throughout the entire land of Egypt since it had become a nation. Shemot 9:24


+ 129 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


+ 146 For if you refuse to let them go, behold, tomorrow I am going to bring locusts into your borders. Shemot 10:4


+ 174 The locusts ascended over the entire land of Egypt, and they alighted within all the borders of Egypt, very severe; before them, there was never such a locust plague, and after it, there will never be one like it. Shemot 10:14


+ 168 Pharaoh summoned Moses and said, Go! Worship the Lord, but your flocks and your cattle shall be left. Your young children may also go with you. Shemot 10:24


+ 141 Moses said, So said the Lord, At the dividing point of the night, I will go out into the midst of Egypt, Shemot 11:4


+ 145 But if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his neighbor who is nearest to his house shall take one according to the number of people, each one according to one's ability to eat, shall you be counted for the lamb. Shemot 12:4


+ 125 And this day shall be for you as a memorial, and you shall celebrate it as a festival for the Lord; throughout your generations, you shall celebrate it as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:14


+ 134 And you shall keep this matter as a statute for you and for your children forever. Shemot 12:24


+ 157 The people picked up their dough when it was not yet leavened, their leftovers bound in their garments on their shoulders. Shemot 12:34


+ 133 And the habitation of the children of Israel, that they dwelled in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. Shemot 12:40


+ 124 It came to pass at the end of four hundred and thirty years, and it came to pass in that very day, that all the legions of the Lord went out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 12:41


+ 141 It is a night of anticipation for the Lord, to take them out of the land of Egypt; this night is the Lord's, guarding all the children of Israel throughout their generations. Shemot 12:42


+ 162 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


+ 147 And every man's slave, purchased for his money you shall circumcise him; then he will be permitted to partake of it. Shemot 12:44


+ 130 A sojourner or a hired hand may not partake of it. Shemot 12:45


+ 140 It must be eaten in one house; you shall not take any of the meat out of the house to the outside, neither shall you break any of its bones. Shemot 12:46


+ 132 The entire community of Israel shall make it. Shemot 12:47


+ 182 And should a proselyte reside with you, he shall make a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. All his males shall be circumcised, and then he may approach to make it, and he will be like the native of the land, but no uncircumcised male may partake of it. Shemot 12:48


+ 123 There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who resides in your midst." Shemot 12:49


+ 131 Today you are going out, in the month of spring. Shemot 13:4


+ 146 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


+ 122 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 14:1


+ 149 Speak to the children of Israel, and let them turn back and encamp in front of Pi hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea; in front of Baal Zephon, you shall encamp opposite it, by the sea. Shemot 14:2


+ 155 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


+ 141 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will pursue them, and I will be glorified through Pharaoh and through his entire force, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord And they did so. Shemot 14:4


+ 171 It was reported to Pharaoh that the people had fled; and Pharaoh and his servants had a change of heart toward the people, and they said, What is this that we have done, that we have released Israel from serving us? Shemot 14:5


+ 122 So he harnessed his chariot, and took his people with him. Shemot 14:6


+ 133 He took six hundred select chariots and all the chariots of Egypt, with officers over them all. Shemot 14:7


+ 154 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and he chased after the children of Israel, and the children of Israel were marching out triumphantly. Shemot 14:8


+ 155 The Egyptians chased after them and overtook them encamped by the sea every horse of Pharaoh's chariots, his horsemen, and his force beside Pi hahiroth, in front of Ba'al Zephon. Shemot 14:9


+ 190 Pharaoh drew near, and the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold! the Egyptians were advancing after them. They were very frightened, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord. Shemot 14:10


+ 175 They said to Moses, Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us to die in the desert? What is this that you have done to us to take us out of Egypt? Shemot 14:11


+ 128 Isn't this the thing about which we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, Leave us alone, and we will serve the Egyptians, because we would rather serve the Egyptians than die in the desert. Shemot 14:12


+ 184 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


+ 137 The Lord will fight for you, but you shall remain silent. Shemot 14:14


+ 149 The Lord said to Moses, Why do you cry out to Me? Speak to the children of Israel and let them travel. Shemot 14:15


+ 135 And you raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and split it, and the children of Israel shall come in the midst of the sea on dry land. Shemot 14:16


+ 130 And I, behold! I shall harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they will come after you, and I will be glorified through Pharaoh, and through all his force, through his chariots, and through his horsemen. Shemot 14:17


+ 138 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I will be glorified through Pharaoh, through his chariots, and through his horsemen. Shemot 14:18


+ 162 Then the angel of God, who had been going in front of the Israelite camp, moved and went behind them, and the pillar of cloud moved away from in front of them and stood behind them. Shemot 14:19


+ 150 And he came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel, and there were the cloud and the darkness, and it illuminated the night, and one did not draw near the other all night long. Shemot 14:20


+ 142 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord led the sea with the strong east wind all night, and He made the sea into dry land and the waters split. Shemot 14:21


+ 127 Then the children of Israel came into the midst of the sea on dry land, and the waters were to them as a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:22


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


+ 162 And He removed the wheels of their chariots, and He led them with heaviness, and the Egyptians said, Let me run away from the Israelites because the Lord is fighting for them against the Egyptians. Shemot 14:25


+ 143 Thereupon, the Lord said to Moses, Stretch out your hand over the sea, and let the water return upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. Shemot 14:26


+ 165 So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and toward morning the sea returned to its strength, as the Egyptians were fleeing toward it, and the Lord stirred the Egyptians into the sea. Shemot 14:27


+ 155 And the waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen, the entire force of Pharaoh coming after them into the sea; not even one of them survived. Shemot 14:28


+ 138 But the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the water was to them like a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:29


+ 152 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


+ 163 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


+ 126 Pharaoh's chariots and his army He cast into the sea, and the elite of his officers sank in the Red Sea. Shemot 15:4


+ 140 Peoples heard, they trembled; a shudder seized the inhabitants of Philistia. Shemot 15:14


+ 133 The people complained against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? Shemot 15:24


+ 173 So the Lord said to Moses, Behold! I am going to rain down for you bread from heaven, and the people shall go out and gather what is needed for the day, so that I can test them, whether or not they will follow My teaching. Shemot 16:4


+ 136 The layer of dew went up, and behold, on the surface of the desert, a fine, bare substance as fine as frost on the ground. Shemot 16:14


+ 138 So they left it over until morning, as Moses had commanded, and it did not become putrid, and not a worm was in it. Shemot 16:24


+ 142 As the Lord had commanded Moses, Aaron deposited it before the testimony to be preserved. Shemot 16:34


+ 163 Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, What shall I do for this people? Just a little longer and they will stone me! Shemot 17:4


+ 165 The Lord said to Moses, Inscribe this as a memorial in the book, and recite it into Joshua's ears, that I will surely obliterate the remembrance of Amalek from beneath the heavens. Shemot 17:14


+ 175 And one who was named Eliezer, because Moses said, "The God of my father came to my aid and rescued me from Pharaoh's sword." Shemot 18:4


+ 152 When Moses father in law saw what he was doing to the people, he said, What is this thing that you are doing to the people? Why do you sit by yourself, while all the people stand before you from morning till evening? Shemot 18:14


+ 125 Moses obeyed his father in law, and he did all that he said. Shemot 18:24


+ 138 You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles wings, and I brought you to Me. Shemot 19:4


+ 139 So Moses descended from the mountain to the people, and he prepared the people, and they washed their garments. Shemot 19:14


+ 164 But the Lord said to him, Go, descend, and then you shall ascend, and Aaron with you, but the priests and the populace shall not break their formation to ascend to the Lord, lest He wreak destruction upon them. Shemot 19:24


+ 160 You shall not make for yourself a graven image or any likeness which is in the heavens above, which is on the earth below, or which is in the water beneath the earth. Shemot 20:4


+ 152 You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, his manservant, his maidservant, his ox, his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbor. Shemot 20:14


+ 129 If his master gives him a wife, and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to her master, and he shall go out alone. Shemot 21:4


+ 137 But if a man plots deliberately against his friend to slay him with cunning, even from My altar you shall take him to die. Shemot 21:14


+ 107 An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, a foot for a foot, Shemot 21:24


+ 120 The owner of the pit shall pay; he shall return money to its owner, and the dead body shall be his. Shemot 21:34


+ 140 If a man leads his animals into a field or a vineyard, or lets his animal loose and it eats in another's field, the best of his field or the best of his vineyard he shall pay. Shemot 22:4


+ 125 If its owner is with him, he shall not pay; if it is a hired animal, it has come for its hire. Shemot 22:14


+ 168 When you lend money to My people, to the poor person who is with you, you shall not behave toward him as a lender; you shall not impose interest upon him. Shemot 22:24


+ 126 If you come upon your enemy's bull or his stray donkey, you shall surely return it to him. Shemot 23:4


+ 126 Three times you shall slaughter sacrifices to Me during the year. Shemot 23:14


+ 155 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


+ 173 And to Moses He said, Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and prostrate yourselves from afar. Shemot 24:1


+ 134 And Moses alone shall approach the Lord but they shall not approach, and the people shall not ascend with him." Shemot 24:2


+ 164 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


+ 154 And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord, and he arose early in the morning and built an altar at the foot of the mountain and twelve monuments for the twelve tribes of Israel. Shemot 24:4


+ 152 And he sent the youths of the children of Israel, and they offered up burnt offerings, and they slaughtered peace offerings to the Lord, bulls. Shemot 24:5


+ 133 And Moses took half the blood and put it into the basins, and half the blood he cast onto the altar. Shemot 24:6


+ 129 And he took the Book of the Covenant and read it within the hearing of the people, and they said, "All that the Lord spoke we will do and we will hear." Shemot 24:7


+ 169 And Moses took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, and he said, "Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord has formed with you concerning these words." Shemot 24:8


+ 137 And Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel ascended, Shemot 24:9


+ 140 And they perceived the God of Israel, and beneath His feet was like the forming of a sapphire brick and like the appearance of the heavens for clarity. Shemot 24:10


+ 119 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand, and they perceived God, and they ate and drank. Shemot 24:11


+ 159 And the Lord said to Moses, Come up to Me to the mountain and remain there, and I will give you the stone tablets, the Law and the commandments, which I have written to instruct them. Shemot 24:12


+ 141 So Moses and Joshua, his servant, arose, and Moses ascended to the mount of God. Shemot 24:13


+ 126 And to the elders he said, Wait for us here until we return to you, and here Aaron and Hur are with you; whoever has a case, let him go to them. Shemot 24:14


+ 128 And Moses went up to the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. Shemot 24:15


+ 145 And the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days, and He called to Moses on the seventh day from within the cloud. Shemot 24:16


+ 232 And the appearance of the glory of the Lord was like a consuming fire atop the mountain, before the eyes of the children of Israel. Shemot 24:17


+ 128 And Moses came within the cloud, and he went up to the mountain, and Moses was upon the mountain forty days and forty nights. Shemot 24:18


+ 115 Blue, purple, and crimson wool; linen and goat hair; Shemot 25:4


+ 124 And you shall bring the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to carry the ark with them. Shemot 25:14


+ 133 And you shall overlay it with pure gold, and you shall make for it a golden crown all around. Shemot 25:24


+ 171 And on the stem of the menorah shall be four decorated goblets, its knobs and its flowers. Shemot 25:34


+ 129 Now see and make according to their pattern, which you are shown on the mountain. Shemot 25:40


+ 123 And you shall make loops of blue wool on the edge of one curtain that is at the edge of the first set, and so shall you do on the edge of the outermost curtain of the second set. Shemot 26:4


+ 122 And you shall make a covering for the tent of ram skins dyed red and a covering of tachash skins above. Shemot 26:14


+ 161 And they shall be matched evenly from below, and together they shall match at its top, to be put into the one ring; so shall it be for both of them; they shall be for the two corners. Shemot 26:24


+ 135 And you shall place the ark cover over the Ark of the Testimony in the Holy of Holies. Shemot 26:34


+ 130 And you shall make for it a copper grating of netting work, and you shall make on the netting four copper rings on its four ends. Shemot 27:4


+ 153 The hangings on the shoulder shall be fifteen cubits, their pillars three and their sockets three. Shemot 27:14


+ 148 And these are the garments that they shall make: a choshen, an ephod, a robe, a tunic of checker work, a cap, and a sash. They shall make holy garments for your brother Aaron and for his sons to serve Me as kohanim. Shemot 28:4


+ 148 And two chains of pure gold you will make them attached to the edges, after the manner of cables, and you will place the cable chains upon the settings. Shemot 28:14


+ 135 And you shall place the two golden cables on the two rings, at the ends of the choshen. Shemot 28:24


+ 117 A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, on the bottom hem of the robe, all around. Shemot 28:34


+ 129 For Aaron's sons you shall make tunics and make them sashes, and you shall make them high hats for honor and glory. Shemot 28:40


+ 162 With these you shall clothe Aaron, your brother, and his sons along with him, and you shall anoint them and invest them with full authority and sanctify them so that they may serve Me as kohanim. Shemot 28:41


+ 146 And make for them linen pants to cover the flesh of their nakedness; they shall reach from the waist down to the thighs. Shemot 28:42


+ 162 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


+ 149 And you shall bring Aaron and his sons near the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and you shall bathe them in water. Shemot 29:4


+ 132 But the flesh of the bull, its hide and its dung you shall burn in fire outside the camp; it is a sin offering. Shemot 29:14


+ 129 And you shall place it all upon Aaron's palms and upon his sons' palms, and you shall wave them as a waving before the Lord. Shemot 29:24


+ 147 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


+ 161 And one tenth of fine flour, thoroughly mixed with a quarter of a hin of crushed olive oil, and a libation of one quarter of a hin of wine, for the one lamb. Shemot 29:40


+ 164 And the other lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon; you shall offer it up like the meal offering of the morning and its libation, as a spirit of satisfaction, a fire offering to the Lord. Shemot 29:41


+ 152 It shall be a continual burnt offering for your generations, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting before the Lord, where I will arrange meetings with you, to speak to you there. Shemot 29:42


+ 135 There I will arrange meetings with the children of Israel, and it will be sanctified by My glory. Shemot 29:43


+ 113 I will sanctify the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and I will sanctify Aaron and his sons to serve Me as kohanim. Shemot 29:44


+ 121 I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel and I will be their God. Shemot 29:45


+ 122 They will know that I, the Lord, am their God, Who brought them out of the land of Egypt in order that I may dwell in their midst; I am the Lord, their God. Shemot 29:46


+ 144 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


+ 139 Everyone who goes through the counting, from the age of twenty and upward, shall give an offering to the Lord. Shemot 30:14


+ 104 And of cassia five hundred shekel weights according to the holy shekel, and one hin of olive oil. Shemot 30:24


+ 157 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


+ 95 To do master weaving, to work with gold, with silver, and with copper, Shemot 31:4


+ 121 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


+ 167 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


+ 101 The Lord then reconsidered the evil He had said He would do to His people. Shemot 32:14


+ 121 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


+ 134 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


+ 86 When the people heard this bad news, they mourned, and no one put on his finery. Shemot 33:4


+ 89 So He said, My Presence will go, and I will give you rest. Shemot 33:14


+ 154 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


+ 115 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


+ 105 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


+ 152 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


+ 100 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


+ 123 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


+ 160 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


+ 114 And Moses hastened, bowed his head to the ground and prostrated himself, Shemot 34:8


+ 111 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


+ 168 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


+ 135 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


+ 112 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


+ 106 But you shall demolish their altars, shatter their monuments, and cut down their sacred trees. Shemot 34:13


+ 115 For you shall not prostrate yourself before another god, because the Lord, Whose Name is Jealous One, is a jealous God. Shemot 34:14


+ 122 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


+ 100 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


+ 95 You shall not make molten gods for yourself. Shemot 34:17


+ 162 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


+ 129 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


+ 112 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


+ 110 Six days you may work, and on the seventh day you shall rest; in plowing and in harvest you shall rest. Shemot 34:21


+ 124 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


+ 111 Three times during the year shall all your male appear directly before the Master, the Lord, the God of Israel. Shemot 34:23


+ 125 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


+ 127 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


+ 133 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


+ 150 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


+ 143 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


+ 146 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


+ 147 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


+ 111 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


+ 127 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


+ 120 When Moses had finished speaking with them, he placed a covering over his face. Shemot 34:33


+ 135 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


+ 151 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


+ 116 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


+ 106 And the menorah for lighting and its implements and its lamps, and the oil for lighting; Shemot 35:14


+ 106 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


+ 94 And then he made curtains of goat hair for a tent over the Mishkan; he made them eleven curtains. Shemot 36:14


+ 106 And he made forty silver sockets under the twenty planks; two sockets under one plank for its two square pegs, and two sockets under one plank for its two square pegs. Shemot 36:24


+ 107 And he overlaid the planks with gold, and their rings he made of gold as holders for the bars, and he overlaid the bars with gold. Shemot 36:34


+ 95 And he made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. Shemot 37:4


+ 97 The rings were opposite the frame as holders for the poles with which to carry the table. Shemot 37:14


+ 95 He made it of a talent of pure gold, and all its implements. Shemot 37:24


+ 98 And he made for the altar a copper grating of netting work, beneath its ledge from below, until its middle. Shemot 38:4


+ 100 The hangings on the shoulder were fifteen cubits, their pillars three and their sockets three. Shemot 38:14


+ 112 All the gold that had been used for the work in all the work of the Holy the gold of the waving was twenty nine talents, seven hundred and thirty shekels, according to the holy shekel. Shemot 38:24


+ 96 They made connecting shoulder straps for it at both its ends, it was entirely connected. Shemot 39:4


+ 136 And the stones were for the names of the sons of Israel twelve, corresponding to their names; similar to the engravings of a seal, every one according to his name, for the twelve tribes. Shemot 39:14


+ 107 And they made on the bottom hem of the robe pomegranates of blue, purple, and crimson wool, twisted. Shemot 39:24


+ 93 The covering of rams' skins dyed red, the covering of tachash skins, and the screening dividing curtain, Shemot 39:34

+ 112 The meshwork garments for the service in the Holy, the holy garments for Aaron the Kohen Gadol and his sons garments for serving as kohanim. Shemot 39:41


+ 130 In accordance with all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel do all the work. Shemot 39:42


+ 101 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 40:1


+ 88 On the day of the first month, on the first of the month, you shall set up the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 40:2


+ 93 There you shall place the Ark of the Testimony, and you shall spread the dividing curtain toward the ark. Shemot 40:3


+ 99 You shall bring in the table and set its arrangement; you shall bring in the menorah and kindle its lamps. Shemot 40:4


+ 96 You shall place the golden altar for incense before the Ark of the Testimony, and you shall place the screen of the entrance to the Mishkan. Shemot 40:5


+ 82 You shall place the altar of the burnt offering in front of the entrance of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 40:6


+ 93 You shall place the washstand between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and there you shall put water. Shemot 40:7


+ 87 And you shall set up the courtyard all around, and you shall put up the screen for the gate to the courtyard. Shemot 40:8


+ 88 You shall take the anointing oil and anoint the Mishkan and everything within it, and you shall sanctify it and all its furnishings; thus it will become a holy thing. Shemot 40:9


+ 88 You shall anoint the altar for the burnt offering and all its implements; you shall sanctify the altar; thus the altar will become a holy of holies. Shemot 40:10


+ 89 You shall anoint the washstand and its base and sanctify it. Shemot 40:11


+ 98 And you shall bring Aaron and his sons near the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and you shall bathe them in water. Shemot 40:12


+ 101 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


+ 106 And you shall bring his sons near and clothe them with tunics. Shemot 40:14


+ 136 And you shall anoint them, as you have anointed their father, so that they may serve Me as kohanim. And this shall be so that their anointment shall remain for them an everlasting kehunah throughout their generations. Shemot 40:15


+ 108 Thus Moses did; according to all that the Lord had commanded him, so he did. Shemot 40:16


+ 93 It came to pass in the first month, in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the Mishkan was set up. Shemot 40:17


+ 122 Moses set up the Mishkan, placed its sockets, put up its planks, put in its bars, and set up its pillars. Shemot 40:18


+ 111 He spread the tent over the Mishkan, and he placed the cover of the tent over it from above, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:19


+ 94 He took and placed the testimony into the ark, put the poles upon the ark, and placed the ark cover on the ark from above. Shemot 40:20


+ 136 He brought the ark into the Mishkan and placed the screening dividing curtain so that it formed a protective covering before the Ark of the Testimony as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:21


+ 96 He placed the table in the Tent of Meeting on the northern side of the Mishkan, outside the dividing curtain. Shemot 40:21


+ 120 He set upon it an arrangement of bread before the Lord as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:23


+ 172 He placed the menorah in the Tent of Meeting, opposite the table, on the southern side of the Mishkan. Shemot 40:24


+ 103 He kindled the lamps before the Lord as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:25


+ 97 He placed the golden altar in the Tent of Meeting in front of the dividing curtain. Shemot 40:26


+ 119 He made the incense go up in smoke upon it as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:27


+ 100 He placed the screen for the entrance of the Mishkan. Shemot 40:28


+ 115 The altar of the burnt offering he placed in front of the entrance of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting, and he offered up the burnt offering and the meal offering upon it as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:29


+ 112 He placed the washstand between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and there he put water for washing, Shemot 40:30


+ 112 And Moses, Aaron, and his sons would wash their hands and their feet from it. Shemot 40:31


+ 127 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


+ 139 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


+ 99 And the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the Mishkan. Shemot 40:34


+ 132 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


+ 103 When the cloud rose up from over the Mishkan, the children of Israel set out in all their journeys. Shemot 40:36


+ 95 But if the cloud did not rise up, they did not set out until the day that it rose. Shemot 40:37


+ 180 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


+ 139 And he shall lean his hand forcefully upon the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted for him to atone for him. Vayikra 1:4


+ 129 And if his sacrifice to the Lord, is a burnt offering from birds, he shall bring it from turtle doves or from young doves. Vayikra 1:14


+ 154 And if one brings a meal offering baked in an oven, it shall consist of either unleavened loaves made of fine flour mixed with oil, or unleavened wafers anointed with oil. Vayikra 2:4


+ 166 When you bring a meal offering of the first grains to the Lord, you shall bring your first grain meal offering from barley, as soon as it ripens, parched over the fire, kernels full in their husks, ground into coarse meal. Vayikra 2:14


+ 124 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


+ 143 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


+ 107 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 4:1


+ 177 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: If a person sins unintentionally by committing one of all the commandments of the Lord, which may not be committed, and he commits part of one of them Vayikra 4:2


+ 127 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


+ 121 And he shall bring the bull to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting before the Lord, and he shall lean his hand forcefully upon the bull's head and slaughter the bull before the Lord. Vayikra 4:4


+ 109 And the anointed kohen shall take from the bull's blood and bring it into the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 4:5


+ 118 And the kohen shall dip his finger into the blood and sprinkle some of the blood seven times before the Lord, before the dividing curtain of the Sanctuary. Vayikra 4:6


+ 124 And the kohen shall place some of the blood on the horns of the incense altar which is in the Tent of Meeting, before the Lord, and he shall pour all the blood of the bull onto the base of the altar used for burnt offerings, which is at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 4:7


+ 105 And all the fat of the sin offering bull he shall separate from it: the fat covering the innards, and all the fat that is on the innards, Vayikra 4:8


+ 121 And the two kidneys along with the fat that is on them, which is on the flanks; and the diaphragm with the liver, along with the kidneys, he shall remove it, Vayikra 4:9


+ 124 Just as was separated from the bull sacrificed as a peace offering, the kohen shall then cause them to go up in smoke on the altar used for burnt offerings. Vayikra 4:10


+ 136 He shall then take the bull's skin and all of its flesh, along with its head and along with its legs, its innards and its waste matter. Vayikra 4:11


+ 134 He shall take out the entire bull to a clean place outside the camp, namely, to the ash depository, and he shall burn it in fire on wood. Thus, it shall be burnt in the ash depository. Vayikra 4:12


+ 153 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


+ 131 When the sin which they had committed becomes known, the congregation shall bring a young bull as a sin offering. They shall bring it before the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 4:14


+ 124 The elders of the community shall lean their hands forcefully upon the bull's head, before the Lord, and one shall slaughter the bull before the Lord. Vayikra 4:15


+ 114 The anointed kohen shall bring some of the bull's blood into the Tent of Meeting, Vayikra 4:16


+ 100 And the kohen shall dip his finger from the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the Lord, before the dividing curtain. Vayikra 4:17


+ 125 And he shall then place some of the blood on the horns of the altar that is before the Lord in the Tent of Meeting. And then he shall pour all the blood onto the base of the altar used for burnt offerings, which is at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 4:18


+ 100 And he shall separate all its fat from it and cause it to go up in smoke on the altar. Vayikra 4:19


+ 114 He shall do to the bull just as he did to the bull of the sin offering thus he shall do to it. Thus the kohen shall make atonement for them the community, and they will be forgiven. Vayikra 4:20


+ 132 And he shall take the bull outside the camp and burn it, just as he burned the first bull. It is a sin offering for the congregation. Vayikra 4:21


+ 144 If a leader of Israel sins and unintentionally commits one of all the commandments of the Lord, which may not be committed, incurring guilt; Vayikra 4:22


+ 113 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


+ 115 And he shall lean his hand forcefully upon the goat's head and slaughter it in the place where he slaughters burnt offerings, before the Lord. It is a sin offering. Vayikra 4:24


+ 123 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 its blood onto the base of the altar used for burnt offerings. Vayikra 4:25


+ 130 And he shall cause all its fat to go up in smoke on the altar, just like the fat of the peace offering. Thus the kohen shall make atonement for his sin, and he will be forgiven. Vayikra 4:26


+ 143 If one person of the people of the land commits a sin unintentionally, by his committing one of the commandments of the Lord which may not be committed, incurring guilt; Vayikra 4:27


+ 121 If his sin that he committed is made known to him, he shall bring his sacrifice: an unblemished female goat, for his sin that he committed. Vayikra 4:28


+ 116 And he shall lean his hand forcefully on the head of the sin offering, and he shall slaughter the sin offering in the place of the burnt offering. Vayikra 4:29


+ 136 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


+ 160 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


+ 132 If he brings a sheep for his sin offering, he shall bring an unblemished female. Vayikra 4:32


+ 122 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


+ 171 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


+ 144 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 a person swears, expressing with his lips to do harm or to do good, whatever a man may express in an oath, and it is hidden from him and later he knows, he is guilty in any one of these cases. Vayikra 5:4


+ 116 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 5:14


+ 137 or anything else, regarding which he had sworn falsely, he shall pay it with its principal, adding its fifths to it. He shall give it to its rightful owner on the day he repents for his guilt. Vayikra 5:24


+ 111 He shall then take off his garments and put on other garments, and he shall take out the ashes to a clean place outside the camp. Vayikra 6:4


+ 140 It shall be made with oil on a shallow pan, after bringing it scalded and repeatedly baked; you shall offer a meal offering of broken pieces, with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 6:14


+ 115 And the two kidneys along with the fat that is upon them, which is on the flanks, and the diaphragm with the liver; along with the kidneys he shall remove it. Vayikra 7:4


+ 216 And he shall bring from it one out of each offering, as a separation for the Lord; the kohen who dashes the blood of the peace offering it shall be his. Vayikra 7:14


+ 112 The fat of carrion and the fat of an animal with a fatal disease or injury, may be used for any work, but you shall not eat it. Vayikra 7:24


+ 126 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


+ 110 And Moses did as the Lord had commanded him, and the community assembled at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 8:4


+ 129 And he brought the sin offering bull close, and Aaron and his sons leaned their hands forcefully upon the head of the sin offering bull. Vayikra 8:14


+ 141 And he brought Aaron's sons forward, and Moses placed some of the blood on the cartilage of their right ears, on the thumbs of their right hands, and on the big toes of their right feet, and Moses dashed the blood on the altar, around. Vayikra 8:24


+ 100 As he did on this day, so the Lord has commanded to do, to effect atonement for you. Vayikra 8:34


+ 116 And an ox and a ram as peace offerings, to slaughter before the Lord, and a meal offering mixed with oil, for today the Lord is appearing to you. Vayikra 9:4


+ 112 And he washed the innards and the legs, and he caused them to go up in smoke on the altar, along with the burnt offering. Vayikra 9:14


+ 140 And fire went forth from before the Lord and consumed the burnt offering and the fats upon the altar, and all the people saw, sang praises, and fell upon their faces. Vayikra 9:24


+ 151 And Moses summoned Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Aaron's uncle Uzziel, and said to them, Draw near; carry your kinsmen from within the Sanctuary, to the outside of the camp. Vayikra 10:4


+ 149 The breast of the waving and the thigh of the raising up you shall eat in a clean place, you and your sons and your daughters with you, for as your portion and your sons' portion they have been given, from the peace offerings of the children of Israel. Vayikra 10:14


+ 160 But these you shall not eat among those that bring up the cud and those that have a cloven hoof: the camel, because it brings up its cud, but does not have a completely cloven hoof; it is unclean for you. Vayikra 11:4


+ 94 The kestrel, and the vulture after its species, Vayikra 11:14


+ 113 And through these you will become unclean; anyone who touches their dead bodies will be unclean until evening; Vayikra 11:24


+ 137 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


+ 109 And one who eats of its carcass shall immerse his garments, and he shall be unclean until evening. And one who carries its carcass shall immerse his garments, and he shall be unclean until evening. Vayikra 11:40

+ 130 Any creature that goes on its belly, and any creature that walks on four legs to any creature that has many legs, among all creeping creatures that creep on the ground, you shall not eat, for they are an abomination. Vayikra 11:42


+ 120 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


+ 209 For I am the Lord your God, and you shall sanctify yourselves and be holy, because I am holy, and you shall not defile yourselves through any creeping creature that crawls on the ground. Vayikra 11:44


+ 123 For I am the Lord Who has brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God. Thus, you shall be holy, because I am holy. Vayikra 11:45


+ 104 This is the law regarding animals, birds, all living creatures that move in water and all creatures that creep on the ground, Vayikra 11:46


+ 105 To distinguish between the unclean and the clean, and between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten. Vayikra 11:47


+ 206 And for thirty three days, she shall remain in the blood of purity; she shall not touch anything holy, nor may she enter the Sanctuary, until the days of her purification have been completed. Vayikra 12:4


+ 138 But if it is a white bahereth on the skin of his flesh, and its appearance is not deeper than the skin, and its hair has not turned white, the kohen shall quarantine the person with the lesion for seven days. Vayikra 13:4


+ 105 But on the day that live flesh appears in it, he shall become unclean. Vayikra 13:14


+ 114 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


+ 128 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


+ 81 If a man loses the hair on the back of his head, he is bald. He is clean. 13:40


+ 106 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


+ 135 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


+ 108 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


+ 123 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


+ 122 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


+ 111 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


+ 115 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


+ 124 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


+ 93 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


+ 106 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 14:1


+ 118 This shall be the law of the person afflicted with tzara'ath, on the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought to the kohen. Vayikra 14:2


+ 111 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


+ 121 Then the kohen shall order, and the person to be cleansed shall take two live, clean birds, a cedar stick, a strip of crimson wool, and hyssop. Vayikra 14:4


+ 123 The kohen shall order, and one shall slaughter the one bird into an earthenware vessel, over spring water. Vayikra 14:5


+ 135 As for the live bird, he shall take it, and then the cedar stick, the strip of crimson wool, and the hyssop, and, along with the live bird, he shall dip them into the blood of the slaughtered bird, over the spring water. Vayikra 14:6


+ 125 He shall then sprinkle seven times upon the person being cleansed from tzara'ath, and he shall cleanse him. He shall then send away the live bird into the open field. Vayikra 14:7


+ 131 The person being cleansed shall then immerse his garments, shave off all his hair, and immerse himself in water, and become clean. After this, he may enter the camp, but he shall remain outside his tent for seven days. Vayikra 14:8


+ 117 And it shall be, on the seventh day, that he shall shave off all his hair: that of his head, his beard, his eyebrows; indeed, all his hair, he shall shave off. He shall then immerse his garments and immerse his flesh in water, thus becoming clean. Vayikra 14:9


+ 120 And on the eighth day, he shall take two unblemished male lambs, one unblemished ewe lamb in its first year, three tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with olive oil as a meal offering, and one log of olive oil. Vayikra 14:10


+ 138 And the kohen who is performing the cleansing shall place the person being cleansed together with these things, before the Lord, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 14:11


+ 113 And the kohen shall take one male lamb and bring it as a guilt offering, along with the log of oil, and wave them as a waving before the Lord. Vayikra 14:12


+ 118 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


+ 138 The kohen shall take some of the blood of the guilt offering, and the kohen shall place it above the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. Vayikra 14:14


+ 112 And the kohen shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it onto the kohen's left palm. Vayikra 14:15


+ 123 The kohen shall then dip his right index finger into some of the oil that is on his left palm, and sprinkle some of the oil with his index finger seven times, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:16


+ 134 And some of the remainder of the oil that is in his palm, the kohen shall place on the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot, on top of the blood of the guilt offering. Vayikra 14:17


+ 103 And what is left over from the oil that is in the kohen's palm, he shall place upon the head of the person being cleansed, and the kohen shall effect atonement for him before the Lord. Vayikra 14:18


+ 124 The kohen shall then perform the service of the sin offering and effect atonement for the person being cleansed of his uncleanness. After this, he shall slaughter the burnt offering. Vayikra 14:19


+ 101 And the kohen shall bring up the burnt offering and the meal offering to the altar. The kohen shall thus effect atonement for him, and he shall be completely clean. Vayikra 14:20


+ 128 But if he is poor and cannot afford these sacrifices, he shall take one male lamb as a guilt offering for a waving to effect atonement for him, and one tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil as a meal offering, and a log of oil. Vayikra 14:21


+ 105 And two turtle doves or two young doves, according to what he can afford; one shall be a sin offering, and one a burnt offering. Vayikra 14:22


+ 117 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


+ 102 And the kohen shall take the guilt offering lamb and the log of oil, and the kohen shall wave them as a waving, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:24


+ 148 And he shall slaughter the guilt offering lamb, and the kohen shall take some of the blood of the guilt offering's and place it on the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. Vayikra 14:25

+ 120 And what is left over from the oil that is in the kohen's palm, he shall place upon the head of the person being cleansed, to effect atonement for him, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:29


+ 120 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


+ 139 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


+ 130 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


+ 114 And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, Vayikra 14:33


+ 113 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


+ 141 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


+ 118 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


+ 131 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


+ 110 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


+ 103 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


+ 124 The kohen shall order that they remove the stones upon which the lesion is found, and they shall cast them away outside the city, to an unclean place. Vayikra 14:40


+ 118 And he shall scrape out the house from the inside, all around, and they shall pour out the mortar dust from what they scraped, outside the city, into an unclean place. Vayikra 14:41


+ 112 And they shall take other stones and bring them instead of those stones. And he shall take other mortar dust, and plaster the house. Vayikra 14:42


+ 132 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


+ 115 Then the kohen shall come and look at it. Now, if the lesion in the house has spread, it is malignant tzara'ath in the house; it is unclean. Vayikra 14:44


+ 122 He shall demolish the house, its stones, its wood, and all the mortar dust of the house, and he shall take them outside the city, to an unclean place. Vayikra 14:45


+ 105 And anyone entering the house during all the days of its quarantine shall become unclean until the evening. Vayikra 14:46


+ 122 And whoever lies down in the house, shall immerse his garments, and whoever eats in the house, shall immerse his garments. Vayikra 14:47


+ 146 But if the kohen comes and comes again and looks at the lesion, and behold, the lesion did not spread in the house, after the house has been plastered, the kohen shall pronounce the house clean, because the lesion has healed. Vayikra 14:48


+ 140 To ritually cleanse the house, he shall take two birds, a cedar stick, a strip of crimson wool, and hyssop. Vayikra 14:49


+ 116 He shall slaughter one bird into an earthenware vessel, over spring water. Vayikra 14:50


+ 145 And he shall take the cedar stick, the hyssop, the strip of crimson wool, and the live bird, and he shall dip them into the blood of slaughtered bird and into the spring water and sprinkle towards the house seven times. Vayikra 14:51


+ 131 And he shall thus cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, the spring water, the live bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop and the strip of crimson wool. Vayikra 14:52


+ 147 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


+ 99 All this is the law for every lesion of tzara'ath, and for a nethek, Vayikra 14:54


+ 107 And for tzara'ath of garments and houses, Vayikra 14:55


+ 90 And for a se'eith and for a sapachath and for a bahereth; Vayikra 14:56


+ 110 To render decisions regarding the day of uncleanness and the day of cleanness. This is the law of tzara'ath. Vayikra 14:57


+ 106 Any bedding upon which the man with the discharge will lie, shall become unclean, and any object upon which he will sit, shall become unclean. Vayikra 15:4


+ 109 And on the eighth day, he shall take for himself two turtle doves or two young doves, and come before the Lord, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and give them to the kohen. Vayikra 15:14


+ 119 If a man cohabits with her, the uncleanness of her menstruation shall be upon him, and he shall be unclean for seven days, and any bedding he lies upon, shall become unclean. Vayikra 15:24


+ 123 He shall wear a holy linen shirt and linen pants shall be upon his flesh, and he shall gird himself with a linen sash and wear a linen cap these are holy garments, and therefore, he shall immerse himself in water and don them. Vayikra 16:4


+ 138 And he shall take some of the bull's blood and sprinkle it with his index finger on top of the ark cover on the eastern side; and before the ark cover, he shall sprinkle seven times from the blood, with his index finger. Vayikra 16:14


+ 112 And he shall immerse his flesh in a holy place and don his garments. He shall then go out and sacrifice his burnt offering and the people's burnt offering, and he shall effect atonement for himself and for the people. Vayikra 16:24


+ 145 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


+ 124 But does not bring it to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting to offer up as a sacrifice to the Lord before the Mishkan of the Lord, this act shall be counted for that man as blood he has shed blood, and that man shall be cut off from among his people; Vayikra 17:4


+ 128 For regarding the soul of all flesh its blood is in its soul, and I said to the children of Israel: You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the soul of any flesh is its blood all who eat it shall be cut off. Vayikra 17:14


+ 121 You shall fulfill My ordinances and observe My statutes, to follow them. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 18:4


+ 106 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's brother you shall not come near his wife; she is your aunt. Vayikra 18:14


+ 141 You shall not defile yourselves by any of these things, for the nations, whom I am sending away from before you, have defiled themselves with all these things. Vayikra 18:24


+ 139 You shall not turn to the worthless idols, nor shall you make molten deities for yourselves. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 19:4


+ 126 You shall not curse a deaf person. You shall not place a stumbling block before a blind person, and you shall fear your God. I am the Lord. Vayikra 19:14


+ 110 And in the fourth year, all its fruit shall be holy, a praise to the Lord. Vayikra 19:24


+ 156 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


+ 127 But if the people of the land ignore that man when he gives of his offspring to Molech, not putting him to death Vayikra 20:4


+ 110 And a man who takes a woman and her mother it is evil counsel. They shall burn him and them in fire, and there shall be no evil counsel in your midst. Vayikra 20:14


+ 134 So I said to you, You shall possess their land, and I shall give it to you to possess it a land flowing with milk and honey. I am the Lord your God, Who has distinguished you from the peoples. Vayikra 20:24


+ 110 But a husband shall not defile himself for a wife who causes his desecration, while she is among his people. Vayikra 21:4


+ 126 A widow, a divorcee, a woman who is desecrated or a prostitute he shall not marry any of these. Only a virgin of his people may he take as a wife. Vayikra 21:14


+ 131 Moses told this to Aaron and his sons, and to all of the children of Israel. Vayikra 21:24


+ 140 Any man whatsoever among Aaron's offspring if he has tzara'ath or has had a discharge, he shall not eat of the holy sacrifices, until he cleanses himself. And one who touches anyone who has become unclean by contact with a dead person, or a man from whom semen issued, Vayikra 22:4


+ 171 And if a man unintentionally eats what is holy, he shall add a fifth of it to it and give the kohen the holy thing. Vayikra 22:14


+ 146 Any animal whose testicles were squashed, crushed, pulled out, or severed, you shall not offer up to the Lord, and in your land, you shall not do it. Vayikra 22:24


+ 136 These are the Lord's appointed holy days, holy occasions, which you shall designate in their appointed time: Vayikra 23:4


+ 125 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


+ 159 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


+ 135 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


+ 135 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


+ 116 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


+ 157 For a seven day period you shall live in booths. Every resident among the Israelites shall live in booths, Vayikra 23:42


+ 133 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


+ 146 And Moses told the children of Israel these laws of the Lord's appointed holy days. Vayikra 23:44


+ 116 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 24:1


+ 138 Command the children of Israel, and they shall take to you pure olive oil, crushed for lighting, to kindle the lamps continually. Vayikra 24:2


+ 129 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


+ 104 Upon the pure menorah, he shall set up the lamps, before the Lord, continually. Vayikra 24:4


+ 187 And you shall take fine flour and bake it into twelve loaves. Each loaf shall be made from two tenths of an ephah of flour. Vayikra 24:5


+ 105 And you place them in two stacks, six in each stack, upon the pure table, before the Lord. Vayikra 24:6


+ 198 And you shall place pure frankincense alongside each stack, and it shall be a reminder for the bread, a fire offering to the Lord. Vayikra 24:7


+ 120 Each and every Sabbath day, he shall set it up before the Lord to be there continuously, from the children of Israel an eternal covenant. Vayikra 24:8


+ 132 And it shall belong to Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in a holy place, for it is holy of holies for him, among the fire offerings of the Lord, an eternal statute. Vayikra 24:9


+ 120 Now, the son of an Israelite woman and he was the son of an Egyptian man went out among the children of Israel, and they quarreled in the camp this son of the Israelite woman, and an Israelite man. Vayikra 24:10


+ 143 And the son of the Israelite woman pronounced the Divine Name and cursed. So they brought him to Moses. His mother's name was Shelomith the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan. Vayikra 24:11


+ 124 They placed him in the guardhouse, until his sentence would be specified to them by the word of the Lord. Vayikra 24:12


+ 115 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 24:13


+ 109 Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and all who heard his blasphemy shall lean their hands on his head. And the entire community shall stone him. Vayikra 24:14


+ 105 And to the children of Israel, you shall speak, saying: Any man who blasphemes his God shall bear his sin. Vayikra 24:15


+ 138 And one who blasphemously pronounces the Name of the Lord, shall be put to death; the entire community shall stone him; convert and resident alike if he pronounces the Divine Name, he shall be put to death. Vayikra 24:16


+ 108 And if a man strikes down any human being he shall be put to death. Vayikra 24:17


+ 103 And one who slays an animal shall pay for it the value of a life for the life he took. Vayikra 24:18


+ 125 And a man who inflicts an injury upon his fellow man just as he did, so shall be done to him namely, Vayikra 24:19


+ 106 Fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. Just as he inflicted an injury upon a person, so shall it be inflicted upon him. Vayikra 24:20


+ 114 And one who injures an animal shall pay for it. And one who strikes a person shall be put to death. Vayikra 24:21


+ 116 One law shall be exacted for you, convert and resident alike, for I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 24:22


+ 130 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


+ 122 But in the seventh year, the land shall have a complete rest a Sabbath to the Lord; you shall not sow your field, nor shall you prune your vineyard. Vayikra 25:4


+ 127 And when you make a sale to your fellow Jew or make a purchase from the hand of your fellow Jew, you shall not wrong one another. Vayikra 25:14


+ 111 Therefore, throughout the land of your possession, you shall give redemption for the land. Vayikra 25:24


+ 128 And a field in the open areas of their cities cannot be sold, because it is their eternal inheritance. Vayikra 25:34


+ 103 As an employee or a hired resident, he shall be with you; until the Jubilee year he shall work with you. Vayikra 25:40


+ 100 Then, he shall leave you he, and his children with him, and he shall return to his family and resume the status of his fathers. Vayikra 25:41


+ 117 For they are My servants, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt they shall not be sold as a slave is sold. Vayikra 25:42


+ 95 You shall not work him with rigor, and you shall fear your God. Vayikra 25:43


+ 105 Your male slave or female slave whom you may have from the nations that are around you, from them you may acquire a male slave or a female slave. Vayikra 25:44


+ 122 And also from the children of the residents that live among you, from them you may acquire slaves and from their family that is with you whom they begot in your land, and they shall become your inheritance. Vayikra 25:45


+ 124 You shall hold onto them as an inheritance for your children after you, as acquired property, and may thus have them serve you forever. But as for your brethren, the children of Israel, a man shall not work his brother with rigor. Vayikra 25:46


+ 113 If a resident non Jew gains wealth with you, and your brother becomes destitute with him and is sold to a resident non Jew among you or to an idol of the family of a non Jew. Vayikra 25:47


+ 87 After he is sold, he shall have redemption; one of his brothers shall redeem him. Vayikra 25:48


+ 118 Or his uncle or his cousin shall redeem him, or the closest other relative from his family shall redeem him; or, if he becomes able to afford it, he can be redeemed on his own. Vayikra 25:49


+ 119 And if he is not redeemed through any of these ways, he shall go out in the Jubilee year he and his children with him. Vayikra 25:54


+ 104 I will give your rains in their time, the Land will yield its produce, and the tree of the field will give forth its fruit. Vayikra 26:4


+ 98 But if you do not listen to Me and do not perform all these commandments, Vayikra 26:14


+ 107 Then I too, will treat you as happenstance. I will again add seven punishments for your sins: Vayikra 26:24


+ 144 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


+ 124 They will then confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers their betrayal that they dealt Me, and that they also treated Me as happenstance. Vayikra 26:40


+ 132 Then I too, will treat them as happenstance and bring them back while in the land of their enemies. If then, their clogged heart becomes humbled, then, their sufferings will gain appeasement for their iniquity, Vayikra 26:41


+ 132 And I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and also My covenant with Isaac, and also My covenant with Abraham I will remember. And I will remember the Land, Vayikra 26:42


+ 123 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


+ 124 But despite all this, while they are in the land of their enemies, I will not despise them nor will I reject them to annihilate them, thereby breaking My covenant that is with them, for I am the Lord their God. Vayikra 26:44


+ 99 I will remember for them the covenant made with the ancestors, whom I took out from the land of Egypt before the eyes of the nations, to be a God to them. I am the Lord. Vayikra 26:45


+ 142 These are the statutes, the ordinances, and the laws that the Lord gave between Himself and the children of Israel on Mount Sinai, by the hand of Moses. Vayikra 26:46


+ 95 And if she is a female, the value is thirty shekels; Vayikra 27:4


+ 98 And if a man consecrates his house to be holy to the Lord, the kohen shall evaluate it whether good or bad; as the kohen evaluates it, so shall it remain. Vayikra 27:14


+ 100 In the Jubilee year, the field shall return to the one from whom he bought it namely, the one whose inherited land it was. Vayikra 27:24


+ 139 These are the commandments that the Lord commanded Moses to tell the children of Israel on Mount Sinai. Vayikra 27:34


+ 115 With you there shall be a man from each tribe, one who is head of his father's house. Bamidbar 1:4


+ 86 For Gad, Eliasaph the son of De'uel. Bamidbar 1:14


+ 131 Of the tribe of Gad, their descendants according to their families, according to their fathers' houses; the number of individual names of every male from twenty years old and upward, all who were fit to go out to the army. Bamidbar 1:24


+ 132 Of the tribe of Manasseh, their descendants according to their families, according to their fathers' houses; the number of individual names of every male from twenty years old and upward, all who were fit to go out to the army. Bamidbar 1:34


+ 132 Of the tribe of Asher, their descendants according to their families, according to their fathers' houses; the number of individual names of every male from twenty years old and upward, all who were fit to go out to the army. Bamidbar 1:40


+ 95 Those counted from the tribe of Asher: forty one thousand, five hundred. Bamidbar 1:41


+ 146 Of the tribe of Naphtali, their descendants according to their families, according to their fathers' houses; the number of individual names of every male from twenty years old and upward, all who were fit to go out to the army. Bamidbar 1:42


+ 106 Those counted from the tribe of Naphtali: fifty three thousand, four hundred. Bamidbar 1:43


+ 125 These are the numbered ones, whom Moses and Aaron and the twelve princes of Israel counted each one representing his fathers' house. Bamidbar 1:44


+ 115 All the children of Israel were counted according to their fathers' houses, from twenty years and upward, all who were fit to go out to the army. Bamidbar 1:45


+ 111 The sum of all those who were counted: six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty. Bamidbar 1:46


+ 102 But the Levites, according to their father's tribe were not numbered among them. Bamidbar 1:47


+ 101 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 1:48


+ 122 Only the tribe of Levi you shall not number, and you shall not reckon their sum among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 1:49


+ 122 And the children of Israel did according to all that the Lord had commanded Moses thus did they do. Bamidbar 1:54


+ 110 His legion numbered seventy four thousand, six hundred. Bamidbar 2:4


+ 105 Then the tribe of Gad. The prince of the children of Gad was Eliasaph the son of Re'uel. Bamidbar 2:14


+ 95 The total sum for the legions under the division of the camp of Ephraim was one hundred and eight thousand, one hundred; they shall be the third to set out. Bamidbar 2:24


+ 120 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


+ 111 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


+ 90 The Lord spoke to Moses in the Sinai desert, saying: Bamidbar 3:14


+ 95 The prince of the father's house of the Gershonites is Eliasaph the son of Lael. Bamidbar 3:24


+ 102 Their tally according to the number of males from the age of one month and upward was six thousand two hundred. Bamidbar 3:34


+ 131 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


+ 102 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


+ 107 So Moses counted every firstborn of Israel, as the Lord had commanded him. Bamidbar 3:42


+ 114 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


+ 100 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 3:44


+ 116 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


+ 97 You shall take five shekels per head, according to the holy shekel, by which the shekel is twenty gerahs. Bamidbar 3:47


+ 100 You shall give the money to Aaron and his sons, in redemption for the firstborns who are in excess of them. Bamidbar 3:48


+ 103 So Moses took the redemption money for those in excess of those redeemed by the Levites. Bamidbar 3:49


+ 139 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron saying: Bamidbar 4:1


+ 103 Make a count of the sons of Kohath from among the children of Levi by their families, according to their fathers' houses. Bamidbar 4:2


+ 98 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


+ 111 The following is the service of the sons of Kohath in the Tent of Meeting-the Holy of Holies. Bamidbar 4:4


+ 90 When the camp is about to travel, Aaron and his sons shall come and take down the dividing screen; with it, they shall cover the Ark of the Testimony. Bamidbar 4:5


+ 138 They shall place upon it a covering of tachash skin and on top of that they shall spread a cloth of pure blue wool. Then they shall put its poles in place. Bamidbar 4:6


+ 121 They shall spread a cloth of blue wool on the Show Table and they shall place on it the forms, spoons, supports, and covering frames; the continual bread can then be placed upon it. Bamidbar 4:7


+ 111 They shall spread upon them a cloth of crimson wool and cover that with a covering of tachash skin. Then they shall put its poles into place. Bamidbar 4:8


+ 102 They shall take a blue cloth and cover the menorah for lighting and its lamps, its tongs, and its scoops, and all its oil vessels used in performing its service. Bamidbar 4:9


+ 91 They shall put it and its vessels into a covering of tachash skin and place it on a pole. Bamidbar 4:10


+ 104 They shall spread a cloth of blue wool over the golden altar and cover it with a covering of tachash skin, and then set its poles in place. Bamidbar 4:11


+ 94 They shall then take all the vessels used in the Holy, put them into a cloth of blue wool, cover them with a covering of tachash skin, and put them onto a pole. Bamidbar 4:12


+ 98 They shall remove the ashes from the altar and spread a cloth of purple wool over it. Bamidbar 4:13


+ 132 They shall place on it all the utensils with which they minister upon it: the scoops, the forks, the shovels, and the basins-all the implements of the altar. Then they shall spread over it a covering of tachash skin and set its poles into place. Bamidbar 4:14


+ 138 Aaron and his sons shall finish covering the Holy and all the vessels of the Holy when the camp is set to travel, and following that, the sons of Kohath shall come to carry them, but they shall not touch the sacred objects for then they will die. These are the burden of the sons of Kohath for the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:15


+ 114 The charge of Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen: oil for lighting, the incense of spices, the continual daily meal offering, and the anointing oil; the charge for the entire Mishkan and all that is in it, of the Holy and its furnishings. Bamidbar 4:16


+ 96 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron saying: Bamidbar 4:17


+ 101 Do not cause the tribe of the families of Kohath to be cut off from among the Levites. Bamidbar 4:18


+ 115 Do this for them, so they should live and not die, when they approach the Holy of Holies. Aaron and his sons shall first come and appoint each man individually to his task and his load. Bamidbar 4:19


+ 101 They shall not come in to see when the holy vessels are being wrapped up, lest they die. Bamidbar 4:20


+ 98 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 4:21


+ 114 Take a census of the sons of Gershon, of them too, following their fathers' houses, according to their families. Bamidbar 4:22


+ 107 From the age of thirty years and upward, until the age of fifty years you shall count them, all who come to join the legion, to perform service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:23


+ 89 This is the service of the Gershonite families to serve and to carry. Bamidbar 4:24


+ 94 They shall carry the curtains of the Mishkan and the Tent of Meeting, its covering and the tachash skin covering overlaid upon it, and the screen for the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 4:25


+ 112 The hangings of the courtyard, the screen at the entrance of the gate of the courtyard which is around the Mishkan and the altar, their ropes, all the work involved, and everything that is made for them, and thus shall they serve. Bamidbar 4:26


+ 109 All the service of the sons of Gershon shall be by the instruction of Aaron and his sons, regarding all their burden and all their service. You shall designate their entire burden as their charge. Bamidbar 4:27

+ 104 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


+ 97 They defiantly ascended to the mountain top, but the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord and Moses did not move from the camp. Bamidbar 14:44


+ 99 The Amalekites and the Canaanites who lived on the mountain came down and smote them and crushed them until Hormah. Bamidbar 14:45

+ 98 You have not even brought us to a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Even if you gouge out the eyes of those men, we will not go up." Bamidbar 16:14


+ 93 Speak to the congregation saying, Withdraw from the dwelling of Korah, Dathan and Abiram. Bamidbar 16:24


+ 82 All Israel who were around them fled from their cries, for they said, "Lest the earth swallow us up too!" Bamidbar 16:34

+ 92 Any devoted thing in Israel shall be yours. Bamidbar 18:14


+ 100 For the tithes of the children of Israel, which they shall set aside for the Lord as a gift, I have given to the Levites as an inheritance. Thus, I have said to them that they shall have no inheritance among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:24

+ 93 The officers appointed over the army's thousands, the commanders of thousands and the commanders of hundreds, approached Moses. Bamidbar 31:48


+ 100 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


+ 103 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


+ 89 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


+ 105 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


+ 95 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


+ 62 The descendants of Gad built Dibon, Ataroth, and Aroer. Bamidbar 32:34

+ 76 Jair the son of Manasseh went and conquered their hamlets, and called them the hamlets of Jair. Bamidbar 32:41


+ 82 Nobah went and conquered Kenath and its surrounding villages, and called it Nobah, after his name. Bamidbar 32:42

+ 90 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


+ 73 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 34:1


+ 94 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


+ 83 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


+ 84 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


+ 69 The western border: it shall be for you the Great [Mediterranean] Sea and the border this shall be your western border. ?Bamidbar 34:6


+ 74 This shall be your northern border: From the Great [Mediterranean] Sea turn yourselves toward Mount Hor. Bamidbar 34:7


+ 67 From Mount Hor turn to the entrance of Hamath, and the ends of the border shall be toward Zedad. Bamidbar 34:8


+ 74 The border shall then extend to Ziphron, and its ends shall be Hazar enan; this shall be your northern border. Bamidbar 34:9


+ 80 You shall then turn yourselves toward the eastern border, from Hazar enan to Shepham. Bamidbar 34:10


+ 74 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


+ 88 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

+ 96 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


+ 80 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


+ 72 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 34:16


+ 85 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

+ 67 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


+ 77 Then the congregation shall judge between the assailant and the blood avenger, on the basis of these judgments. Bamidbar 35:24


+ 98 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


+ 117 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


+ 85 After he had smitten Sihon, king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, and Og, king of the Bashan, who dwelt in Ashtaroth in Edrei. Devarim 1:4


+ 107 And you answered me and said, The thing you have spoken is good for us to do. Devarim 1:14


+ 92 And they turned and went up to the mountain, and they came to the valley of Eshkol and spied it out. Devarim 1:24


+ 109 And the Lord heard the sound of your words, and He became angry and swore, saying, Devarim 1:34


+ 106 But as for you, turn yourselves around and journey into the desert by way of the Red Sea. Devarim 1:40


+ 120 Then you answered and said to me, We have sinned against the Lord; we will go up and fight, according to all that the Lord, our God, has commanded us. So every one of you girded his weapons, and you prepared yourselves to go up to the mountain. Devarim 1:41


+ 94 And the Lord said to me, Say to them, Neither go up nor fight, for I am not among you, lest you be struck down before your enemies. Devarim 1:42


+ 106 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


+ 110 And the Amorites, dwelling in that mountain, came out towards you and pursued you as bees do, and beat you down in Seir, as far as Hormah. Devarim 1:44


+ 94 So you returned and wept before the Lord, but the Lord would not hear your voice, nor would he listen to you. Devarim 1:45


+ 86 And you dwelled in Kadesh many days, as the days that you dwelled. Devarim 1:46


+ 102 And command the people saying, You are about to pass through the boundary of your kinsmen, the children of Esau, who dwell in Seir, and they will be afraid of you. Be very careful. Devarim 2:4


+ 112 And the days when we went from Kadesh barnea, until we crossed the brook of Zered, numbered thirty eight years, until all the generation of the men of war expired from the midst of the camp, just as the Lord swore to them. Devarim 2:14


+ 106 Get up, journey, and cross the river Arnon. Behold, I have delivered into your hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: Begin to possess it, and provoke him to war. Devarim 2:24


+ 106 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


+ 121 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


+ 102 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


+ 100 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


+ 118 And now, O Israel, hearken to the statutes and to the judgments which I teach you to do, in order that you may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord, God of your forefathers, is giving you. Devarim 4:1


+ 102 Do not add to the word which I command you, nor diminish from it, to observe the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. Devarim 4:2


+ 98 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


+ 102 But you who cleave to the Lord your God are alive, all of you, this day. Devarim 4:4


+ 112 Behold, I have taught you statutes and ordinances, as the Lord, my God, commanded me, to do so in the midst of the land to which you are coming to possess. Devarim 4:5


+ 118 And you shall keep them and do them, for that is your wisdom and your understanding in the eyes of the peoples, who will hear all these statutes and say, Only this great nation is a wise and understanding people. Devarim 4:6


+ 97 For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the Lord our God is at all times that we call upon Him? Devarim 4:7


+ 105 And which great nation is it that has just statutes and ordinances, as this entire Torah, which I set before you this day? Devarim 4:8


+ 105 But beware and watch yourself very well, lest you forget the things that your eyes saw, and lest these things depart from your heart, all the days of your life, and you shall make them known to your children and to your children's children, Devarim 4:9


+ 100 The day you stood before the Lord your God at Horeb, when the Lord said to me, "Assemble the people for Me, and I will let them hear My words, that they may learn to fear Me all the days that they live on the earth, and that they may teach their children. Devarim 4:10


+ 114 And you approached and stood at the foot of the mountain, and the mountain burned with fire up to the midst of the heavens, with darkness, a cloud, and opaque darkness. Devarim 4:11


+ 103 The Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire; you heard the sound of the words, but saw no image, just a voice. Devarim 4:12


+ 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


+ 102 And the Lord commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and ordinances, so that you should do them in the land to which you are crossing, to possess. Devarim 4:14


+ 114 And you shall watch yourselves very well, for you did not see any image on the day that the Lord spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire. Devarim 4:15


+ 110 Lest you become corrupt and make for yourselves a graven image, the representation of any form, the likeness of male or female, Devarim 4:16


+ 93 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the heaven, Devarim 4:17


+ 105 The likeness of anything that crawls on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters, beneath the earth. Devarim 4:18


+ 111 And lest you lift up your eyes to heaven, and see the sun, and the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, which the Lord your God assigned to all peoples under the entire heaven, and be drawn away to prostrate yourselves before them and worship them. Devarim 4:19


+ 91 But the Lord took you and brought you out of the iron crucible, out of Egypt, to be a people of His possession, as of this day. Devarim 4:20


+ 98 And the Lord was angry with me because of you, and He swore that I would not cross the Jordan and that I would not come into the good land the Lord, your God, is giving you as an inheritance. Devarim 4:21


+ 86 For I will die in this land; I will not cross the Jordan. You, however, will cross, and you will possess this good land. Devarim 4:22


+ 129 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


+ 90 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a zealous God. Devarim 4:24


+ 113 When you beget children and children's children, and you will be long established in the land, and you become corrupt and make a graven image, the likeness of anything, and do evil in the eyes of the Lord your God, to provoke Him to anger, Devarim 4:25


+ 113 I call as witness against you this very day the heaven and the earth, that you will speedily and utterly perish from the land to which you cross the Jordan, to possess; you will not prolong your days upon it, but will be utterly destroyed. Devarim 4:26


+ 105 And the Lord will scatter you among the peoples, and you will remain few in number among the nations to where the Lord will lead you. Devarim 4:27


+ 89 And there you will worship gods, man's handiwork, wood and stone, which neither see, hear, eat, nor smell. Devarim 4:28


+ 102 And from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Devarim 4:29


+ 109 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


+ 109 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


+ 106 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


+ 96 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


+ 113 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


+ 114 You have been shown, in order to know that the Lord He is God; there is none else besides Him. Devarim 4:35


+ 108 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


+ 102 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


+ 87 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


+ 120 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


+ 116 And you shall observe His statutes and His commandments, which I command you this day, that it may be well with you and your children after you, and that you may prolong your days upon the earth which the Lord your God gives you forever. Devarim 4:40


+ 92 Then Moses decided to separate three cities on the side of the Jordan towards the sunrise, Devarim 4:41


+ 108 So that a murderer might flee there, he who murders his fellow man unintentionally, but did not hate him in time past, that he may flee to one of these cities, so that he might live: Devarim 4:42


+ 106 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


+ 96 And this is the teaching which Moses set before the children of Israel: Devarim 4:44


+ 116 These are the testimonies, statutes and ordinances, which Moses spoke to the children of Israel when they went out of Egypt, Devarim 4:45


+ 110 On the side of the Jordan in the valley, opposite Beth Peor, in the land of Sihon, king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, whom Moses and the children of Israel smote, after they went out of Egypt. Devarim 4:46


+ 91 And they possessed his land and the land of Og, king of the Bashan, the two kings of the Amorites, who were on the side of the Jordan, towards the sunrise, Devarim 4:47


+ 93 From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, to Mount Sion, which is Hermon, Devarim 4:48


+ 95 And all the plain across the Jordan eastward as far as the sea of the plain, under the waterfalls of the hill. Devarim 4:49


+ 103 Face to face, the Lord spoke with you at the mountain out of the midst of the fire: Devarim 5:4


+ 123 But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall perform no labor, neither you, your son, your daughter, your manservant, your maidservant, your ox, your donkey, any of your livestock, nor the stranger who is within your cities, in order that your manservant and your maidservant may rest like you. Devarim 5:14


+ 86 You approach, and hear all that the Lord, our God, will say, and you speak to us all that the Lord, our God, will speak to you, and we will hear and do. Devarim 5:24


+ 98 Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God; the Lord is one. Devarim 6:4


+ 90 Do not go after other gods, of the gods of the peoples who are around you. Devarim 6:14


+ 106 And the Lord commanded us to perform all these statutes, to fear the Lord, our God, for our good all the days, to keep us alive, as of this day. Devarim 6:24


+ 109 For he will turn away your son from following Me, and they will worship the gods of others, and the wrath of the Lord will be kindled against you, and He will quickly destroy you. Devarim 7:4


+ 101 You shall be blessed above all peoples: There will be no sterile male or barren female among you or among your livestock. Devarim 7:14


+ 96 And He will deliver their kings into your hand, and you will destroy their name from beneath the heavens; no man will be able to stand up before you, until you have destroyed them. Devarim 7:24


+ 93 Your clothing did not wear out upon you, nor did your foot swell these forty years. Devarim 8:4


+ 99 And your heart grows haughty, and you forget the Lord, your God, Who has brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, Devarim 8:14


+ 101 Do not say to yourself, when the Lord, your God, has repelled them from before you, saying, "Because of my righteousness, the Lord has brought me to possess this land," and that because of the wickedness of these nations, the Lord drives them out from before you. Devarim 9:4


+ 97 Leave Me alone, and I will destroy them and obliterate their name from beneath the heavens, and I will make you into a nation mightier and more numerous than they." Devarim 9:14


+ 88 You have been rebelling against the Lord since the day I became acquainted with you. Devarim 9:24


+ 106 And He inscribed on the tablets, like the first writing, the Ten Commandments, which the Lord had spoken to you on the mountain, from the midst of the fire, on the day of the assembly, and the Lord gave them to me. Devarim 10:4


+ 87 Behold, to the Lord, your God, belong the heavens and the heavens of the heavens, the earth, and all that is on it. Devarim 10:14


+ 111 And what He did to the army of Egypt, to its steeds, and to its chariots, that He caused the waters of the Red Sea to inundate them when they pursued you, and the Lord destroyed them, to this day, Devarim 11:4


+ 95 I will give the rain of your land at its time, the early rain and the latter rain, and you will gather in your grain, your wine, and your oil. Devarim 11:14


+ 106 Every place upon which the soles of your feet will tread, will be yours: from the desert and the Lebanon, from the river, the Euphrates River, and until the western sea, will be your boundary. Devarim 11:24


+ 86 You shall not do so to the Lord, your God. Devarim 12:4


+ 105 But only in the place the Lord will choose in one of your tribes; there you shall offer up your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you. Devarim 12:14


+ 92 You shall not eat it, you shall spill it on the ground, like water. Devarim 12:24


+ 119 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


+ 96 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


+ 109 You are children of the Lord, your God. You shall neither cut yourselves nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead. Devarim 14:1


+ 95 For you are a holy people to the Lord, your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a treasured people for Him, out of all the nations that are upon the earth. Devarim 14:2


+ 83 You shall not eat any abomination. Devarim 14:3


+ 91 These are the animals that you may eat: ox, lamb, and kid, Devarim 14:4


+ 103 Gazelle, deer, and antelope, ibex, chamois, bison, and giraffe. Devarim 14:5


+ 111 And every animal that has a split hoof and has a hoof cloven into two hoof sections, and chews the cud among the animals that you may eat. Devarim 14:6


+ 124 But you shall not eat of those that chew the cud, or of those that have the split hooves: the cloven one, the camel, the hyrax, and the hare, for they chew the cud, but do not have split hooves; they are unclean for you. Devarim 14:7


+ 97 And the pig, because it has a split hoof, but does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. You shall neither eat of their flesh nor touch their carcass. Devarim 14:8


+ 92 These you may eat of all that are in the waters; all that have fins and scales, you may eat. Devarim 14:9


+ 88 But whatever does not have fins and scales, you shall not eat; it is unclean for you. Devarim 14:10


+ 84 You may eat every clean bird. Devarim 14:11


+ 101 But these are those from which you shall not eat: The eagle or the griffin vulture, the ossifrage, the osprey; Devarim 14:12


+ 89 And the white vulture, and the black vulture, and the kite after its species; Devarim 14:13


+ 91 And every raven after its species; Devarim 14:14


+ 82 And the ostrich, and the owl, and the gull, and the hawk after its species; Devarim 14:15


+ 72 The falcon, and the ibis, and the bat; Devarim 14:16


+ 75 And the pelican, and the magpie, and the cormorant; Devarim 14:17


+ 85 And the stork, and the heron and its species, and the hoopoe, and the atalef. Devarim 14:18


+ 92 And every flying insect is unclean for you; they may not be eaten. Devarim 14:19


+ 91 You may eat any clean fowl. Devarim 14:20


+ 105 You shall not eat any carcass. You may give it to the stranger who is in your cities, that he may eat it, or you may sell it to a foreigner; for you are a holy people to the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Devarim 14:21


+ 103 You shall tithe all the seed crop that the field gives forth, year by year. Devarim 14:22


+ 110 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


+ 99 And if the way be too long for you, that you are unable to carry it, for the place which the Lord, your God, will choose to establish His Name therein, is too far from you, for the Lord, your God, will bless you Devarim 14:24


+ 97 Then you shall turn it into money, and bind up the money in your hand, and you shall go to the place the Lord, your God, will choose. Devarim 14:25

+ 99 And the Levite because he has no portion or inheritance with you and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow, who are in your cities, will come and eat and be satisfied; so that the Lord, your God, will bless you in all the work of your hand that you will do. Devarim 14:29

+ 344 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.

+ 219 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.

+ 204 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!

+ 171 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.

+ 122 Torah Learning for the Creative Individual

Outstanding people who are involved in Torah and who have a talent and inner predilection for ethical and poetic studies, for high thoughts and exalted wisdom, may not suppress or nullify that great desire.

They must broaden it and make it great. They must every day engage in Torah learning that is broad and that transmits knowledge, wisdom and ability.

Such people must dedicate most of their talent to such learning. They should not worry that this dedication may force them to curtail their practical Torah learning, leading them to satisfy themselves with learning that is easy, short and straight, allowing them to simply know the halachah and its reasoning clearly, and allowing them to simply clarify everything in its time with the calm learning of breadth of knowledge in (a) halachah, (b) the basic Talmud discussions and (c) the various approaches of the sages.

This will not keep them from being sharp. True Torah sharpness is naturally born of this learning [mentioned above] of itself, and appears when it is needed.

One does not need to work hard and spend a great deal of time on pilpul. As it is, most pilpul is intended for those [who, not being poetic,] turn to it to fulfill the thirst of their soul for the breadth of Torah and powerful intellectual freedom.

A little pilpul is always good, even for those who are mostly involved in very spiritual matters; but the basic concern of these sensitive souls must be “to open the eyes of the blind; to bring the prisoner out of the jail; to take the man sitting in darkness out of his cell” (Is. 42:7).

Eder Hay’kar, p. 140


+ 116 The Voice of the Living God

A profound recognition of the divine purpose within the Torah, as well as within prophecy and holy inspiration in general, brings our thought to observe their unity. We realize that the Pentateuch encompasses the other writings of the Bible, and that the Pentateuch in its supernal holiness is enveloped within the voice of the living God.

As long as our soul lives, we heed and hear this great voice, which penetrates all of the Torah.

Throughout all its generations, the people of Israel has recognized this great principle of the oneness of the Torah. We cling to that with all our heart and spirit. We know that God’s Torah is perfect. We know that the essence of our unified soul wells from this true Torah’s unified light, that the light of the one God appears within us with a clarifying prominence: black fire upon white fire.

And we attribute all of our original nature to this living source. We are certain that this is a tower of strength for us. We know that the entire Torah is merely one name of the Holy One, blessed be He: one name, one expression, one statement, with none else, for everything is contained within Him.

Orot Hatorah 4:1


+ 106 Contained Within the Torah

The entire Torah consists of the names of the Holy One, blessed be He. Every good attribute, every mark of civility, is contained within the Torah. Every wisdom is rooted in the Torah. Indeed, the name of the Holy One, blessed be He, shines within everything good—whether in an individual or a group.

There is a difference between a person who knows that everything consists of light sparkling from the name of the Holy One, blessed be He, or a person who does not know. Nevertheless, this difference is merely a matter of degree.

The essence of the matter depends upon the inner core of our will: to whatever degree it corresponds to goodness. Only in this way can we find the light of the Righteous One of the world, He Who is cloaked in the foundation of all, in wisdom and kindness, so as to make the spiritual and physical visions of existence correspond: that is to say, the ideal of what existence could be and the actual coming about of that ideal. The actualization is the outcome of the ideal, and consummates it.

Orot Hatorah 4:2


+ 118 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


+ 104 The Inner Character

The Torah literally makes the Jewish soul.

Wisdom in general, that which is outside the concepts of Torah, makes the human soul.

When we gaze at the character of the core of the human soul, we will find the spirit of Israel alive within it. In the inner character of all betterment and wisdom, we will find the light of Torah.

Orot Hatorah 12:4


+ 169 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).

Orot Hatorah 13:1


+ 114 Sustaining the World

by Avraham Shoar

In his youth, the writer, Avraham Shoar, was the chavruta (study partner) of Rav Kook in the beis medrash of Lutzin. He tells that young Avraham Yitzchak’s diligence was extraordinary. If a short amount of time passed without learning Torah, he felt real anguish: a actual physical pain:

One day (tells Avraham Shoar), he told me: “I have decided that two nights a week, we should learn mishmar (extended learning). Two nights a week, let us learn until dawn.”

I remember one such mishmar night, typical of the character of this extraordinary man. We were learning Chulin from the Talmud together. We were engaged in halachic dispute. I stood my ground, and we argued at length until we at last came to a shared understanding.

It was late. We were learning at the bimah. Around us was silence. In the adjoining dormitory, all the students were already asleep. Before us, burning above the holy ark, was the ner tamid—the eternal light. And we took a short rest from our toil and sat and conversed.

He said to me in a secretive voice: “Do you know, perhaps just the two of us are now sustaining the entire world. Perhaps the Holy One, blessed be He, is judging the world right now. And mankind’s sins are being considered, and they outweigh the good.

“Now the angel Michael, the one defender out of a thousand, picks up the words of our Torah learning and places them on the scale, and our words of Torah help outweigh the other side. If so, we have merited to sustain the entire world. And we are still just children. This is the first year that I am wearing tefillin, and as for you, you are not even bar mitzvah.”

As he spoke, I was lifted to the highest worlds. I could see, almost with my own eyes, the heavenly host: the fiery scale, the angels and cherubim. They were weighing the acts of humanity, and behold, they placed upon the scale the page of Chulin that we were learning, with the commentaries of Rashi, Tosafot and the Maharsha. And this page gave merit to the entire world.”

As I sat, submerged in my visions, Avraham Yitzchak’s voice continued. I heard him say with great simplicity: “A day will come when and I will be great in Torah. And then...” He touched me so that I would turn to him, and I saw his face burning, his eyes brilliant and sparkling like fiery coals set in milk. And he whispered: “I will go to the land of Israel, to the holy city of Jerusalem, and I will found a yeshiva there, like Kerem Beyavneh. And students from all over the world will gather there, and ‘from Jerusalem will come forth Torah.’”

These were the youthful dreams of Rav Kook.

These were his desires and yearnings when he had just become bar mitzvah.

Malachim Kivnei Adam, pp. 4-5


+ 103 Marked Borders

All spiritual concepts in the Torah are like borders that have been marked so that we may come to them. We do so by employing the means that lead to them with the proper preparations.

If we will want to come to them paying no mind to the fundamental nature of these preparations, we will attain not truthful but illusory matters.

“The lazy man has hidden his hand in the plate; neither will he bring it to his mouth.”

Orot Hatorah 8:4


+ 110 The Root of the Torah

When a person rises to elevated thoughts and arranges his paths in accordance with them in the depths of his spirit, he comes to the root of the Torah in its elevated form, whose goal is to raise the world to its intended elevation.

Then of itself, all that he learns of the details of the Torah is not something new to him. Rather, it is like a remembrance of something that already exists in his potential.

And this is the inner meaning of the statement that “since they are pious, their Torah lasts.”

Orot Hatorah 6:4


+ 101 The Sweetness

A diminution of the sweetness of the pleasantness of Torah results from something lacking in the Jewish nature of the soul.

[The soul] must be rectified by means of self-growth directed toward this lack.

And when our mind is engaged in rectifying this lack, immediately the supernal light of the holy nature of our soul again shines, and the sweetness of the Torah again begins to be revealed.

Orot Hatorah 7:4

“‘Horses of fire’ refers to the letters of the Torah” (Introduction, Tikunei Zohar).

Sometimes an idea is so powerful that a person cannot grasp it with his own strength. But his inspiration is magnified when he bonds with the letter in the Torah. And that capability rises much beyond his own strength, like the swift and certain passage of a chariot.

There is a type of person who travels only by foot. He makes his way using the might of his deep study of the Torah in a general fashion. He is not aided in understanding matters by means of the letters of the Torah.

There is another type of person who lacks the strength to walk. Instead, he travels exclusively upon the letters of the Torah, [‘the horses of fire’]—even in those matters that are simple, where a healthy man should travel by foot, using his own ability.

And there is another type of person. He goes by foot whenever he can. And when he does utilize the letters of the Torah, it is not out of weakness. Rather, he is like a man riding gloriously upon a horse, lending a crown to [the Torah] that he is involved with, or riding to a place that he could not have reached with his own ability, but only, in addition, by means of seeking out the letters of the Torah.

+ 107 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.

Orot Hatorah 3:4


+ 113 The Unbordered Light

In every Torah matter, in every aspect of a particular decree, streams the supernal, unbordered light. The total divine lesson can be extracted from every individual law.

To the observer who accustoms his soul to the stream of light, within every legal matter is revealed the content of its innate being, which is filled from the world of bright illumination, until in regards to every law and chapter he can give breadth to a new song, a full song, a full exposition.

This song pours forth continuously even upon every detail of the law, upon every path of discussion within it, until a poetic commentary that gives pleasure and creates Eden can spread across all the Torah, entirely, upon all the Torah—even the this-worldly and legal Torah—besides extending across all the Aggadic material, which shines with an illumination of a fine spiritual light.

+ 125 Enriching the Community of Israel

One way of learning Torah for its own sake is [to do so in order] to enrich the Community of Israel with great spiritual powers.

The more that the light of Torah increases, so that with one heart the people of Israel appreciate and respect it, the more that the fundamental power of our nation gains strength and firmness.

And the individual soul of the person who brings about this universal blessing itself grows and gains glory, gains completion and beauty, with a multitude of fresh branches. And it sends forth a multitude of powerful roots, through which it takes root amidst the roots of the Tree of true life. To the degree of its purity and might, this soul recognizes and feels the depth of the pleasantness of the good taste of a fulfilled life.

“Your palate is like good wine. It goes directly to my beloved. It causes the lips of the sleeping to murmur” (Shir Hashirim 7:10).

Orot Hatorah 2:4


+ 112 I have seen it written that the prohibition from Above to refrain from open study in the wisdom of truth was only for a limited period, until the end of 1490, but from then on the prohibition has been lifted and permission was granted to study the Zohar. Since 1540 it has been a great Mitzva (commandment) for the masses to study in public, old and young... and that is because the Messiah will come because of that and not because of any other reason. Therefore, we must not be negligent. Rabbi Abraham Ben Mordechai Azulai, Introduction to the book, Ohr HaChama, Light of the Sun


+ 109 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."


+ 89 God’s Law on mount Sinai. God's Law on mount Sinai Mankind on Earth is of the opinion that the word “impossible” applies to a lot of things. – We hold a different opinion, because the things we regard utopia to day, may be possible tomorrow. There are therefore practically no utopias. If one had told people 4,000 years ago about all the things you have today, one would have regarded all of this without exception as impossible. Utopias have become reality. Today’s generation’s fantasies are certainly realisable. This is why we absolutely cannot understand why one doubts our existence. Why can’t one comprehend that we travel beyond the speed of light? – Why does one doubt the possibility that dematerialisation exists? There is no utopia. Everything is possible, if one knows the way to realise it. It isn’t for instance utopia that we, respectively our forefathers, brought the LAW of HEAVEN down to Earth. The handing over of the LAW of HEAVEN took place on Mount Sinai. I have indicated details about this once before in the past. If the handing over of this important event didn’t take place conspicuously enough, then it is mainly due to the technological ignorance of the people at that time. What could they have known about spaceships travelling through space? – As far as Moses was concerned, the spaceship was “GOD’S ABODE” and the rest of the crew “HIS ANGELS”. The siren was the “divine trombone” and the ships antigravity was GOD’S promise to “put anyone to death” that crossed a certain line. All of this is so simple and so easy to understand if one is willing to use one’s mind. You have enough technical experience to correctly comprehend the LEGISLATION received on Mount Sinai. There is absolutely no room for doubt here, because any doubt would indicate mental derangement. He, who doesn’t comprehend this plausible LEGISLATION, also does not know how a car is steered and unaware of the energy that moves it. There is however also an evil will that prevents comprehension. Generally speaking, these people are not dumb; there are even some very famous authorities in politics and the sciences amongst them as well as people in the field of theology. This evil will is like a blinker for spiritual eyes. People do not want to know the TRUTH, because it perturbs them personally. Atheists doubt GOD’S COMMANDMENTS. They deem it impossible that GOD talked to a human being on Mount Sinai amidst thunder and lightning. God's Law on mount SinaiThe Israelites saw a fiery cloud moving in front of them. This pillar of fire hovered horizontally. This pillar of fire did not hover vertically as Jewish theology assumes. There is no mentioning of a vertical pillar anywhere. This pillar was one of our spaceships, that is to say, a mother-ship. Their aura of light can still be observed on all our flying objects by you. The material of the spaceships under our control consists of a glass-like mass that is harder than your normal glass. The colour is similar to a Nile-green. The bible describes its appearance as being similar to chrysolite. Antigravity is so powerful that the landing must take place on solid rock. Our spaceships of this size land on Mount Etna or similar mountain these days. So as not to suffer any injuries, the Israelites were advised to stay beyond a boundary, crossing this boundary could be life threatening. A siren of great sound intensity warned the people from crossing the indicated boundary. Moses could only cross this boundary after the gravitational force was switched off. He received an appropriate signal. There was neither thunder nor lightning, only the din of the spaceship and its alternating aura of light. When the antigravity field was switched on, the Israelites fled in all directions filled with fear and terror. Ashtar
