+ 318 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


+ 378 The will of the nation, speaking with the voice of battle and through the amended Constitution, has fulfilled the great promise of 1776 by proclaiming 'liberty throughout the land to all the inhabitants thereof.' The elevation of the negro race from slavery to the full rights of citizenship is the most important political change we have known since the adoption of the Constitution of 1787. NO thoughtful man can fail to appreciate its beneficent effect upon our institutions and people. It has freed us from the perpetual danger of war and dissolution. It has added immensely to the moral and industrial forces of our people. It has liberated the master as well as the slave from a relation which wronged and enfeebled both. It has surrendered to their own guardianship the manhood of more than 5,000,000 people, and has opened to each one of them a career of freedom and usefulness. James A. Garfield


+ 340 The very employers and politicians and publishers who talk most loudly of class antagonism and the destruction of the American system now undermine that system by this attempt to coerce the votes of the wage earners of this country. It is the 1936 version of the old threat to close down the factory or the office if a particular candidate does not win. It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. Every message in a pay envelope, even if it is the truth, is a command to vote according to the will of the employer. But this propaganda is worse—it is deceit. Franklin D. Roosevelt

+ 454 As a convinced atheist, I ought to agree with Voltaire that Judaism is not just one more religion, but in its way the root of religious evil. Without the stern, joyless rabbis and their 613 dour prohibitions, we might have avoided the whole nightmare of the Old Testament, and the brutal, crude wrenching of that into prophecy - derived Christianity, and the later plagiarism and mutation of Judaism and Christianity into the various rival forms of Islam. Much of the time, I do concur with Voltaire, but not without acknowledging that Judaism is dialectical. There is, after all, a specifically Jewish version of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, with a specifically Jewish name — the Haskalah — for itself. The term derives from the word for 'mind' or 'intellect,' and it is naturally associated with ethics rather than rituals, life rather than prohibitions, and assimilation over 'exile' or 'return.' It's everlastingly linked to the name of the great German teacher Moses Mendelssohn, one of those conspicuous Jewish hunchbacks who so upset and embarrassed Isaiah Berlin. The other way to upset or embarrass Berlin, I found, was to mention that he himself was a cousin of Menachem Schneerson, the 'messianic' Lubavitcher rebbe. However, even pre-enlightenment Judaism forces its adherents to study and think, it reluctantly teaches them what others think, and it may even teach them how to think also.

+ 325 In one study, a research team from Massachusetts General Hospital looked at the brain scans of 16 people before and after they participated in an eight-week course in mindfulness meditation. The study, published in the January issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, concluded that after completing the course, parts of the participants' brains associated with compassion and self-awareness grew, and parts associated with stress shrank.


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


+ 298 During the Messianic Era, the Mashiach will serve a dual role. He will be a monarch, ruling over all of humanity with kindness and justice, and upholding the law of the Torah — 613 commandments for the Jews, and seven for the non-Jews. He will also be the ultimate teacher, the conduit for the deepest and most profound dimensions of the Torah which will then be revealed by God.


+ 357 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).

+ 425 In 28 June 1996, The Jewish Press published a paid advertisement signed by Rabbi Ahron Soloveichik. follows. "Before the passing of the Rebbe, I included myself among those who believe that the Rebbe was worthy of being Mashiach. And I strongly believe that had we, particularly the Orthodox community, been united, we would have merited to see the complete Redemption. Insofar as the belief held by many in Lubavitch - based in part on similar statements made by the Rebbe himself concerning his predecessor, the Previous Rebbe, including prominent rabbanim and roshei yeshiva - that the Rebbe can still be Mashiach in light of the Gemara in Sanhedrin, the Zohar, Abarbanel, Kisvei Arizal, S’dei Chemed, and other sources, it cannot be dismissed as a belief that is outside the pale of Orthodoxy. Any cynical attempt at utilizing a legitimate disagreement of interpretation concerning this matter in order to besmirch and to damage the Lubavitch movement that was, and continues to be, at the forefront of those who are battling the missionaries, assimilation, and indifference, can only contribute to the regrettable discord that already plagues the Jewish community, and particularly the Torah community."

+ 332 Rabbi Tarfon would say: The day is short, the work is much, the workers are lazy, the reward is great, and the Master is pressing. He would also say: It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it. If you have learned much Torah, you will be greatly rewarded, and your employer is trustworthy to pay you the reward of your labors. And know, that the reward of the righteous is in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 2:15-16


+ 312 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 310 Joshua the son of Perachia and Nitai the Arbelite received from them. Joshua the son of Perachia would say: Assume for yourself a master, acquire for yourself a friend, and judge every man to the side of merit. Pirkei Avot 1:6

+ 325 Rabbi Chanina, deputy to the kohanim, would say: Pray for the integrity of the government; for were it not for the fear of its authority, a man would swallow his neighbor alive. Rabbi Chanina son of Tradyon would say: Two who sit and no words of Torah pass between them, this is a session of scorners, as is stated, "And in a session of scorners he did not sit" (Psalms 1:1). But two who sit and exchange words of Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated, "Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard; and it was inscribed before Him in a book of remembrance for those who fear G-d and give thought to His name" (Malachi 3:16). From this, I know only concerning two individuals; how do I know that even a single individual who sits and occupies himself with the Torah, G-d designates reward for him? From the verse, "He sits alone in meditative stillness; indeed, he receives [reward] for it" (Lamentations 3:28). Pirkei Avot 3:2


+ 336 Rabbi Chalafta the son of Dosa of the village of Chanania would say: Ten who sit together and occupy themselves with Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated: "The Almighty stands in the congregation of G-d" (Psalms 82:1). And from where do we know that such is also the case with five? From the verse, "He established his band on earth" (Amos 9:6). And three? From the verse, "He renders judgement in the midst of the tribunal" (Psalms 82:1). And two? From the verse, "Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard" (Malachi 3:16). And from where do we know that such is the case even with a single individual? From the verse, "Every place where I have My name mentioned, I shall come to you and bless you" (Exodus 20:21). Pirkei Avot 3:6


+ 369 He would also say: Beloved is man, for he was created in the image [of G-d]; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to him that he was created in the image, as it is says, "For in the image of G-d, He made man" (Genesis 9:6). Beloved are Israel, for they are called children of G-d; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they are called children of G-d, as it is stated: "You are children of the L-rd your G-d" (Deuteronomy 14:1). Beloved are Israel, for they were given a precious article; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they were given a precious article, as it is stated: "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it" (Proverbs 4:2). Pirkei Avot 3:14


+ 350 He would also say: Everything is placed in pledge, and a net is spread over all the living. The store is open, the storekeeper extends credit, the account-book lies open, the hand writes, and all who wish to borrow may come and borrow. The collection-officers make their rounds every day and exact payment from man, with his knowledge and without his knowledge. Their case is well founded, the judgement is a judgement of truth, and ultimately, all is prepared for the feast. Pirkei Avot 3:16


+ 342 Rabbi Eliezer the son of Azariah would say: If there is no Torah, there is no common decency; if there is no common decency, there is no Torah. If there is no wisdom, there is no fear of God; if there is no fear of God, there is no wisdom. If there is no applied knowledge, there is no analytical knowledge; if there is no analytical knowledge, there is no applied knowledge. If there is no flour, there is no Torah; if there is no Torah, there is no flour. He would also say: One whose wisdom is greater than his deeds, what is he comparable to? To a tree with many branches and few roots; comes a storm and uproots it, and turns it on its face. As is stated, "He shall be as a lone tree in a wasteland, and shall not see when good comes; he shall dwell parched in the desert, a salt land, uninhabited" (Jeremiah 17:6). But one whose deeds are greater than his wisdom, to what is he compared? To a tree with many roots and few branches, whom all the storms in the world cannot budge from its place. As is stated: "He shall be as a tree planted upon water, who spreads his roots by the river; who fears not when comes heat, whose leaf is ever lush; who worries not in a year of drought, and ceases not to yield fruit" (ibid., v. 8). Pirkei Avot 3:18


+ 321 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 276 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


+ 329 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


+ 304 Ten things were created at twilight of Shabbat eve. These are: the mouth of the earth [that swallowed Korach]; the mouth of [Miriam's] well; the mouth of [Balaam's] ass; the rainbow; the manna; [Moses'] staff; the shamir; the writing, the inscription and the tablets [of the Ten Commandments]. Some say also the burial place of Moses and the ram of our father Abraham. And some say also the spirits of destruction as well as the original tongs, for tongs are made with tongs. Pirkei Avot 5:6


+ 328 Any love that is dependent on something - when the thing ceases, the love also ceases. But a love that is not dependent on anything never ceases. What is [an example of] a love that is dependent on something? The love of Amnon for Tamar. And one that is not dependent on anything? The love of David and Jonathan. Pirkei Avot 5:16


+ 383 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


+ 319 Said Rabbi Joshua the son of Levi: Every day, an echo resounds from Mount Horeb (Sinai) proclaiming and saying: "Woe is to the creatures who insult the Torah." For one who does not occupy himself in Torah is considered an outcast, as is stated (Proverbs 11:22), "A golden nose-ring in the snout of a swine, a beautiful woman bereft of reason." And it says (Exodus 32:16): "And the tablets are the work of God, and the writing is God's writing, engraved on the tablets"; read not "engraved" (charut) but "liberty" (chairut) - for there is no free individual, except for he who occupies himself with the study of Torah. And whoever occupies himself with the study of Torah is elevated, as is stated (Number 21:19), "And from the gift to Nahaliel, and from Nahaliel to The Heights." Pirkei Avot 6:2


+ 343 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


+ 296 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


+ 320 Do not seek greatness for yourself, and do not lust for honor. More than you study, do. Desire not the table of kings, for your table is greater than theirs, and your crown is greater than theirs, and faithful is your Employer to pay you the rewards of your work. Pirkei Avot 6:5


+ 608 Torah is greater than the priesthood or sovereignty, for sovereignty is acquired with thirty virtues, the priesthood with twenty-four, and Torah is acquired with forty-eight qualities. These are: study, listening, verbalizing, comprehension of the heart, awe, fear, humility, joy, purity, serving the sages, companionship with one's contemporaries, debating with one's students, tranquility, study of the scriptures, study of the Mishnah, minimizing engagement in business, minimizing socialization, minimizing pleasure, minimizing sleep, minimizing talk, minimizing gaiety, slowness to anger, good heartedness, faith in the sages, acceptance of suffering, knowing one's place, satisfaction with one's lot, qualifying one's words, not taking credit for oneself, likableness, love of God, love of humanity, love of charity, love of justice, love of rebuke, fleeing from honor, lack of arrogance in learning, reluctance to hand down rulings, participating in the burden of one's fellow, judging him to the side of merit, correcting him, bringing him to a peaceful resolution [of his disputes], deliberation in study, asking and answering, listening and illuminating, learning in order to teach, learning in order to observe, wising one's teacher, exactness in conveying a teaching, and saying something in the name of its speaker. Thus we have learned: One who says something in the name of its speaker brings redemption to the world, as is stated (Esther 2:22), "And Esther told the king in the name of Mordechai." Pirkei Avot 6:6


+ 302 Great is Torah, for it gives life to its observers in this world, and in the World To Come. As is stated (Proverbs 4:22): "For they are life to he who finds them, and a healing to all his flesh." And it says (ibid. 3:8): "It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones." And it says (3:18): "She is a tree of life for those who hold fast to her, and happy are those who support her." And it says (1:9): "For they shall be a garland of grace for your head, and necklaces about your neck." And it says(4:9): "She shall give to your head a garland of grace, a crown of glory she shall grant you." And it says (9:11): "With me, your days shall be increased, and years of life shall be added to you." And it says (3:16): "Long days in her right hand; in her left, wealth and honor." And it says (3:2): "For long days, years of life and peace, they shall add to you." Pirkei Avot 6:7


+ 325 Rabbi Shimon the son of Judah would say in the name of Rabbi Shimon the son of Yochai: Beauty, strength, wealth, honor, wisdom, sageness, old age and children are becoming to the righteous and becoming to the world. As is stated (Proverbs 16:31): "Old age is a crown of beauty, to be found in the ways of righteousness." And it says (ibid. 20:29): "The beauty of youths is their strength, and the glory of sages is their age." And it says (ibid., 17:6): "The crown of sages are their grandchildren, and the beauty of children their fathers." And it says (Isaiah 24:23): "And the moon shall be abashed and the sun shamed, for the Lord of hosts has reigned in Zion, and before his elders is glory." Rabbi Shimon the son of Menasia would say: these seven qualities enumerated by the sages for the righteous were all realized in Rabbi [Judah HaNassi] and his sons. Pirkei Avot 6:8


+ 342 Said Rabbi Yossei the son of Kisma: Once, I was traveling and I encountered a man. He greeted me and I returned his greetings. Said he to me: "Rabbi, where are you from?" Said I to him: "From a great city of sages and scholars, am I." Said he to me: "Rabbi, would you like to dwell with us in our place? I will give you a million dinars of gold, precious stones and pearls." Said I to him: "If you were to give me all the silver, gold, precious stones and pearls in the world, I would not dwell anywhere but in a place of Torah. Indeed, so is written in the book of psalms by David the king of Israel: `I prefer the Torah of Your mouth over thousands in gold and silver' (Psalms 118:72). Furthermore, when a person passes from this world neither silver, nor gold, nor precious stones, nor pearls accompany him, only Torah and good deeds, as is stated (Proverbs 6:22): `When you go it will direct you, when you lie down it will watch over you, and when you awaken it shall be your speech.' `When you go it will direct you' - in this world; `when you lie down it will watch over you' - in the grave; `and when you awaken it shall be our speech' - in the World To Come. Also it says (Chaggai 2:8): `Mine is the silver and Mine is the gold, so says the L-rd of Hosts.' " Pirkei Avot 6:9


+ 371 God acquired five acquisitions in his world. These are: one acquisition is the Torah, one acquisition are the heavens and the earth, one acquisition is Abraham, one acquisition is the people of Israel, and one acquisition is the Holy Temple. The Torah, as it is written (Proverbs 8:22), "God acquired me as the beginning of His way, before His works of yore." The heavens and the earth, as it is written (Isaiah 66:1), "So says God: The heavens are My throne and the earth is My footstool; what house, then, can you build for Me, and where is My place of rest?"; and it says (Psalms 104:25), "How many are your works, O God, You have made them all with wisdom; the earth is filled with Your acquisitions." Abraham, as it is written (Genesis 14:19), "And he blessed him, and said: Blessed be Abram to God Most High, acquirer of heavens and earth." Israel, as it is written (Exodus 15:16), "Till Your nation, O God, shall pass, till this nation You have acquired shall pass"; and it says (Psalms 16:3), "To the holy who are upon earth, the noble ones, in whom is all My delight." The Holy Temple, as it is written (Exodus 15:17), "The base for Your dwelling that you, God, have achieved; the Sanctuary, O Lord, that Your hands have established"; and it says (Psalms 78:54), "And He brought them to His holy domain, this mount His right hand has acquired." Pirkei Avot 6:10


+ 311 Everything that God created in His world, He did not create but for His glory. As is stated (Isaiah 43:7): "All that is called by My name and for My glory, I created it, formed it, also I made it." And it says (Exodus 15:1): "God shall reign forever and ever." Pirkei Avot 6:11


+ 253 L’fum tzara agra, according to the effort is the reward. Ben Hei Hei, Ethics of the Fathers, 5:26.


+ 305 I will insist the Hebrews have [contributed] more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations ... They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern. John Adams, Second President of the United States (From a letter to F. A. Van der Kemp [Feb. 16, 1808] Pennsylvania Historical Society)


+ 311 This is an exceedingly strange development, unexpected by all but the theologians. They have always accepted the word of the Bible: In the beginning God created heaven and earth… But for the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; and as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries. - Robert Jastrow. God and the Astronomers [New York: W.W. Norton and Co., 1978], 116. Professor Jastrow was the founder of NASA’s Goddard Institute, now director of the Mount Wilson Institute and its observatory.


+ 355 If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky way. properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality? Mark Twain (“Concerning The Jews,” Harper’s Magazine, 1899 see The Complete Essays of Mark Twain, Doubleday [1963] pg. 249)


+ 290 “It is against their own insoluble problem of being human that the dull and base in humanity are in revolt in anti-Semitism. Judaism, nevertheless, together with Hellenism and Christianity is an inalienable component of our Christian Western civilization, the eternal “call to Sinai” against which humanity again and again rebels.” - Herman Rauschning, The Beast From the Abyss, pp. 155-56


+ 234 Then anyone can understand wise words and stories, the words of the wise and their riddles. Mishlei 1:6


+ 204 They are eager to do evil and are quick to kill. Mishlei 1:16


+ 291 So I will laugh when you are in trouble. I will make fun when disaster strikes you, Mishlei 1:26


+ 262 Only the Lord gives wisdom; he gives knowledge and understanding. Mishlei 2:6


+ 271 It will save you from the unfaithful wife who tries to lead you into adultery with pleasing words. Mishlei 2:16


+ 243 Remember the Lord in all you do, and he will give you success. Mishlei 3:6


+ 284 With her right hand wisdom offers you a long life, and with her left hand she gives you riches and honor. Mishlei 3:16


+ 309 Because the Lord will keep you safe. He will keep you from being trapped. Mishlei 3:26


+ 349 Hold on to wisdom, and it will take care of you. Love it, and it will keep you safe. Mishlei 4:6


+ 298 Because they cannot sleep until they do evil. They cannot rest until they harm someone. Mishlei 4:16


+ 252 Be careful what you do, and always do what is right. Mishlei 4:26


+ 210 She gives little thought to life. She doesn’t even know that her ways are wrong. Mishlei 5:6


+ 298 Do not pour your water in the streets; do not give your love to just any woman. Mishlei 5:16


+ 254 My child, be careful about giving a guarantee for somebody else’s loan, about promising to pay what someone else owes. Mishlei 6:1


+ 226 You might get trapped by what you say; you might be caught by your own words. Mishlei 6:2


+ 269 My child, if you have done this and are under your neighbor’s control, here is how to get free. Don’t be proud. Go to your neighbor and beg to be free from your promise. Mishlei 6:3


+ 231 Don’t go to sleep or even rest your eyes, Mishlei 6:4


+ 237 But free yourself like a deer running from a hunter, like a bird flying away from a trapper. Mishlei 6:5


+ 232 Go watch the ants, you lazy person. Watch what they do and be wise. Mishlei 6:6


+ 214 Ants have no commander, no leader or ruler, Mishlei 6:7


+ 285 But they store up food in the summer and gather their supplies at harvest. Mishlei 6:8


+ 284 How long will you lie there, you lazy person? When will you get up from sleeping? Mishlei 6:9


+ 264 You sleep a little; you take a nap. You fold your hands and lie down to rest. Mishlei 6:10


+ 252 So you will be as poor as if you had been robbed; you will have as little as if you had been held up. Mishlei 6:11


+ 253 Some people are wicked and no good. They go around telling lies, Mishlei 6:12


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


+ 265 They make evil plans in their hearts and are always starting arguments. Mishlei 6:14


+ 269 So trouble will strike them in an instant; suddenly they will be so hurt no one can help them. Mishlei 6:15


+ 235 There are six things the Lord hates. There are seven things he cannot stand: Mishlei 6:16


+ 272 A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that kill innocent people, Mishlei 6:17


+ 236 A mind that thinks up evil plans, feet that are quick to do evil, Mishlei 6:18


+ 208 A witness who lies, and someone who starts arguments among families. Mishlei 6:19


+ 246 My son, keep your father’s commands, and don’t forget your mother’s teaching. Mishlei 6:20


+ 240 Keep their words in mind forever as though you had them tied around your neck. Mishlei 6:21


+ 245 They will guide you when you walk. They will guard you when you sleep. They will speak to you when you are awake. Mishlei 6:22


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


+ 269 They will keep you from sinful women and from the pleasing words of another man’s unfaithful wife. Mishlei 6:24


+ 248 Don’t desire her because she is beautiful. Don’t let her capture you by the way she looks at you. Mishlei 6:25


+ 261 A prostitute will treat you like a loaf of bread, and a woman who takes part in adultery may cost you your life. Mishlei 6:26


+ 255 You cannot carry hot coals against your chest without burning your clothes, Mishlei 6:27


+ 322 And you cannot walk on hot coals without burning your feet. Mishlei 6:28


+ 256 The same is true if you have sexual relations with another man’s wife. Anyone who does so will be punished. Mishlei 6:29


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


+ 232 But if he is caught, he must pay back seven times what he stole, and it may cost him everything he owns. Mishlei 6:31


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


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


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


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


+ 257 Once while I was at the window of my house I looked out through the shutters. Mishlei 7:6


+ 214 I have covered my bed with colored sheets from Egypt. Mishlei 7:16


+ 230 She has ruined many good men, and many have died because of her. Mishlei 7:26


+ 225 Listen, because I have important things to say, and what I tell you is right. Mishlei 8:6


+ 221 Princes use me to lead, and so do all important people who judge fairly. Mishlei 8:16


+ 254 When He had not yet made the land and the outsides and the beginning of the dust of the earth. Mishlei 8:26


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


+ 240 Leave, you simpletons, and live, and step in the way of understanding. Mishlei 9:6


+ 215 "Whoever is simple, let him turn in here, and whoever is devoid of sense," and she says to him, Mishlei 9:16


+ 234 Good people are rewarded with life, but evil people are paid with punishment. Mishlei 10:16


+ 232 A lazy person affects the one he works for like vinegar on the teeth or smoke in the eyes. Mishlei 10:26


+ 245 Doing right brings freedom to honest people, but those who are not trustworthy will be caught by their own desires. Mishlei 11:6


+ 220 A kind woman gets respect, but cruel men get only wealth. Mishlei 11:16


+ 268 People curse those who keep all the grain, but they bless the one who is willing to sell it. Mishlei 11:26


+ 236 The wicked talk about killing people, but the words of good people will save them. Mishlei 12:6


+ 209 Fools quickly show that they are upset, but the wise ignore insults. Mishlei 12:16


+ 255 Good people take advice from their friends, but an evil person is easily led to do wrong. Mishlei 12:26


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


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


+ 238 Those who make fun of wisdom look for it and do not find it, but knowledge comes easily to those with understanding. Mishlei 14:6


+ 242 Wise people are careful and stay out of trouble, but fools are careless and quick to act. Mishlei 14:16


+ 253 Those who respect the Lord will have security, and their children will be protected. Mishlei 14:26


+ 232 Much wealth is in the houses of good people, but evil people get nothing but trouble. Mishlei 15:6


+ 275 It is better to be poor and respect the Lord than to be wealthy and have much trouble. Mishlei 15:16


+ 225 The Lord hates evil thoughts but is pleased with kind words. Mishlei 15:26


+ 265 People may make plans in their minds, but only the Lord can make them come true. Mishlei 16:1


+ 236 You may believe you are doing right, but the Lord will judge your reasons. Mishlei 16:2


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


+ 262 The Lord makes everything go as he pleases. He has even prepared a day of disaster for evil people. Mishlei 16:4


+ 239 The Lord hates those who are proud. They will surely be punished. Mishlei 16:5


+ 274 Love and truth bring forgiveness of sin. By respecting the Lord you will avoid evil. Mishlei 16:6


+ 244 When people live so that they please the Lord, even their enemies will make peace with them. Mishlei 16:7


+ 247 It is better to be poor and right than to be wealthy and dishonest. Mishlei 16:8


+ 224 People may make plans in their minds, but the Lord decides what they will do. Mishlei 16:9


+ 236 The words of a king are like a message from God, so his decisions should be fair. Mishlei 16:10


+ 265 The Lord wants honest balances and scales; all the weights are his work. Mishlei 16:11


+ 242 Kings hate those who do wrong, because governments only continue if they are fair. Mishlei 16:12


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


+ 245 An angry king can put someone to death, so a wise person will try to make him happy. Mishlei 16:14


+ 219 A smiling king can give people life; his kindness is like a spring shower. Mishlei 16:15


+ 230 It is better to get wisdom than gold, and to choose understanding rather than silver! Mishlei 16:16


+ 278 Good people stay away from evil. By watching what they do, they protect their lives. Mishlei 16:17


+ 232 Pride leads to destruction; a proud attitude brings ruin. Mishlei 16:18


+ 239 It is better to be humble and be with those who suffer than to share stolen property with the proud. Mishlei 16:19


+ 222 Whoever listens to what is taught will succeed, and whoever trusts the Lord will be happy. Mishlei 16:20


+ 231 The wise are known for their understanding. Their pleasant words make them better teachers. Mishlei 16:21


+ 265 Understanding is like a fountain which gives life to those who use it, but foolishness brings punishment to fools. Mishlei 16:22


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


+ 234 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, making people happy and healthy. Mishlei 16:24

+ 318 “Never before have Arabs made a capital in a kind of holy city. Take Saudi Arabia. They have Mecca, Medina, to build their capital there. They took a village called Riyadh and turned it into a capital. The Jordanians had Jerusalem, but they built a capital in Amman and not Jerusalem. I think the Arabs have — the Muslims have great rights in Jerusalem and they must be safeguarded to the tiniest little bit, as the rights of other Christians ... We were there a little earlier. In another four or five years, we celebrate 3,000 years since David the King came and made his capital of the Jewish Kingdom in Jerusalem. When we came back to a unified city after the Six-Day War, we were attacked, we drove them away, the city became one. We didn't touch any of the holy places. We gave freedom of access and freedom of prayer, of course, and freedom of education to every one of the many groups in the city.” Teddy Kollek; Mayor of Jerusalem (1967-1993)


+ 322 “For three thousand years, Jerusalem has been the center of Jewish hope and longing. No other city has played such a dominant role in the history, culture, religion and consciousness of a people as has Jerusalem in the life of Jewry and Judaism. Throughout centuries of exile, Jerusalem remained alive in the hearts of Jews everywhere as the focal point of Jewish history, the symbol of ancient glory, spiritual fulfillment and modern renewal. This heart and soul of the Jewish people engenders the thought that if you want one simple word to symbolize all of Jewish history, that word would be ‘Jerusalem.’” Teddy Kollek; Mayor of Jerusalem (1967-1993) Jerusalem, (DC: Washington Institute For Near East Policy, 1990), pp. 19-20.

+ 313 One of the questions asked by al-Balkhi, and often repeated to this day, is this: Why do the children of Israel continue to suffer? My grandmother Dodo thought it was because the goyim were jealous. The seder for Passover (which is a shame-faced simulacrum of a Hellenic question-and-answer session, even including the wine) tells the children that it's one of those things that happens to every Jewish generation. After the Shoah or Endl?sung or Holocaust, many rabbis tried to tell the survivors that the immolation had been a punishment for 'exile,' or for insufficient attention to the Covenant. This explanation was something of a flop with those whose parents or children had been the raw material for the 'proof,' so for a time the professional interpreters of god's will went decently quiet. This interval of ambivalence lasted until the war of 1967, when it was announced that the divine purpose could be discerned after all. How wrong, how foolish, to have announced its discovery prematurely! The exile and the Shoah could now both be understood, as part of a heavenly if somewhat roundabout scheme to recover the Western Wall in Jerusalem and other pieces of biblically mandated real estate.

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

+ 269 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.

+ 259 It goes to the south and goes around to the north; the will goes around and around, and the will returns to its circuits. Kohelet 1:6


+ 276 I spoke to myself, saying, "I acquired and increased great wisdom, more than all who were before me over Jerusalem"; and my heart saw much wisdom and knowledge. Kohelet 1:16


+ 259 I made myself pools of water, to water from them a forest sprouting with trees. Kohelet 2:6


+ 267 For there is no remembrance of the wise man even as of the fool forever, seeing that in the coming days, all is forgotten. And how shall the wise die with the fool? Kohelet 2:16


+ 257 For to a man who is good in His sight, He has given wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to the sinner He has given an occupation to gather and to accumulate, to give to him who is good in God's sight; this too is vanity and frustration. Kohelet 2:26


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


+ 255 And moreover, I saw under the sun, in the place of justice, there is wickedness, and in the place of righteousness, there is wickedness. Kohelet 3:16


+ 238 Better is a handful of ease than two handfuls of toil and frustration. Kohelet 4:6

+ 269 A man whom God gives riches and property and honor, and his soul lacks nothing of all he desires, and God gives him no power to eat of it, but a strange man eats it; this is vanity and a grievous sickness. Kohelet 6:2


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


+ 267 For he comes in vanity and goes in darkness, and in darkness his name is covered. Kohelet 6:4


+ 232 Moreover, he did not see the sun nor did he know it; this one has more gratification than that one. Kohelet 6:5


+ 250 And if he had lived a thousand years twice and experienced no pleasure, do not all go to one place? Kohelet 6:6


+ 250 All of a person's toil is for his mouth, and is the appetite not yet sated? Kohelet 6:7


+ 250 For what is the advantage of the wise over the fool? What less has the poor man who knows how to go along with the living? Kohelet 6:8


+ 230 Better is what he sees with his eyes than that which goes to sate his appetite; this too is vanity and frustration. Kohelet 6:9


+ 273 What was, its name was already called, and it is known that he is a man, and he will not be able to strive with him who is stronger than he. Kohelet 6:10

+ 279 For as the sound of the thorns under the pot, so is the laughter of the fool, and this too is vanity. Kohelet 7:6


+ 258 Be not overly righteous, and be not overly wise; why should you bring desolation upon yourself? Kohelet 7:16


+ 276 And I find more bitter than death the woman whose heart is snares and nets, her hands are bonds; whoever is good in God's sight will escape from her, and a sinner will be taken by her. Kohelet 7:26


+ 239 For every desire has a time and judgment, when the evil of man is great upon him. Kohelet 8:6


+ 257 When I applied my heart to know wisdom and to see the conduct that is done upon the earth, for neither by day nor by night does he see sleep with his eyes. Kohelet 8:16


+ 281 Also their love, as well as their hate, as well as their provocation has already been lost, and they have no more share forever in all that is done under the sun. Kohelet 9:6


+ 234 And I said, Wisdom is better than might, but the wisdom of the poor man is despised, and his words are not heard. Kohelet 9:16

I remember the air being crystal clear, where you could see from one end of the valley to the other. Steve Jobs — On growing up in Silicon Valley in the early 1960s, Smithsonian Institution, 1995


+ 307 The people who built Silicon Valley were engineers. They learned business, they learned a lot of different things, but they had a real belief that humans, if they worked hard with other creative, smart people, could solve most of humankind's problems. I believe that very much. Steve Jobs — Wired. 1996


+ 212 We're not just building a computer, we're building a company. Steve Jobs — Esquire. 1986

+ 260 I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what's next. Steve Jobs — MSNBC, 2006


+ 301 A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets. It wasn't that Microsoft was so brilliant or clever in copying the Mac, it's that the Mac was a sitting duck for 10 years. That's Apple's problem: Their differentiation evaporated. If I were running Apple, I would milk the Macintosh for all it's worth — and get busy on the next great thing— The PC wars are over. Done. Microsoft won a long time ago. Steve Jobs — Fortune. 1996


+ 270 My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other's kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That's how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people. Steve Jobs — 60 Minutes, 2003


+ 268 The people who are doing the work are the moving force behind the Macintosh. My job is to create a space for them, to clear out the rest of the organization and keep it at bay. The things that I have done in my life, I think the things we do now at Pixar, these are team sports. They are not something one person does. Steve Jobs — Charlie Rose, 1996

+ 303 It was a great challenge. Let's make a great phone that we fall in love with. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. Creativity is Just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. Steve Jobs — 1996


+ 245 You know, you keep on innovating, you keep on making better stuff. And if you always want the latest and greatest, then you have to buy a new iPod at least once a year. Steve Jobs — MSNBC, 2006


+ 267 The desktop computer industry is dead. Innovation has virtually ceased. Microsoft dominates with very little innovation. That's over. Apple lost. The desktop market has entered the dark ages, and it's going to be in the dark ages for the next 10 years, or certainly for the rest of this decade. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996

+ 266 The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste, they have absolutely no taste… I guess I am saddened, not by Microsoft's success — I have no problem with their success, they've earned their success for the most part. I have a problem with the fact that they just make really third-rate products. Steve Jobs — PBS Documentary, Triumph of the Nerds. 1996


+ 328 I've seen the demonstrations on the Internet about how you can find another person using a Zune and give them a song they can play three times. It takes forever. By the time you've gone through all that, the girl's got up and left! You're much better off to take one of your ear buds out and put it in her ear. Then you're connected with about two feet of headphone cable. Steve Jobs — On competition between the iPod and Microsoft's Zune, NewsWeek, 2006


+ 308 Our friends up north spend over five billion dollars on research and development and all they seem to do is copy Google and Apple. Steve Jobs — On Microsoft, Apple Worldwide Developer's Conference, 2006


+ 296 It's like when IBM drove a lot of innovation out of the computer industry before the microprocessor came along. Eventually, Microsoft will crumble because of complacency, and maybe some new things will grow. But until that happens, until there's some fundamental technology shift, it's just over. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 234 The Web is not going to change the world, certainly not in the next 10 years. It's going to augment the world. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 325 I love things that level hierarchy, that bring the individual up to the same level as an organization, or a small group up to the same level as a large group with much greater resources. And the Web and the Internet do that. It's a very profound thing. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 271 The most exciting things happening today are objects and the Web. The Web is exciting for two reasons. One, it's ubiquitous. There will be Web dial tone everywhere. And anything that's ubiquitous gets interesting. Two, 1 don't think Microsoft will figure out a way to own it. There's going to be a lot more innovation, and that will create a place where there isn't this dark cloud of dominance. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 319 If you look at things I've done in my life, they have an element of democratizing. The Web is an incredible democratizer. A small company can look as large as a big company and be as accessible as a big company on the Web. Big companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars building their distribution channels. And the Web is going to completely neutralize that advantage. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 286 Whenever you do any one thing intensely over a period of time, you have to give up other lives you could be living. You have to have a real single-minded kind of tunnel vision if you want to get anything significant accomplished. Especially if the desire is not to be a businessman, but to be a creative person.

+ 262 I'm an optimist in the sense that I believe humans are noble and honorable, and some of them are really smart. I have a very optimistic view of individuals. As individuals, people are inherently good. I have a somewhat more pessimistic view of people in groups. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 294 I'm sorry, it's true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We're born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It's been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much — if at all. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996

+ 302 I'm sorry that we have to have a Washington presence. We thrived during our first 16 years without any of this. I never made a political visit to Washington and we had no people here. It wasn't on our radar screen. We were just making great software. Bill Gates

and the shadows disappear,
I will go to that mountain of myrrh
and to that hill of incense.

but my lover had left and was gone.
When he spoke, he took my breath away.
I looked for him, but I could not find him;
I called for him, but he did not answer.
Song of Solomon 5:6


+ 321 His mouth is sweet to kiss, and I desire him very much.
Yes, daughters of Jerusalem, this is my lover and my friend.

most beautiful of women?
Which way did your lover turn?
We will look for him with you.
Song of Solomon 6:1


+ 320 My lover has gone down to his garden,
to the beds of spices,
to feed in the gardens

He feeds among the lilies.

as lovely as the city of Jerusalem,
like an army flying flags.
Song of Solomon 6:4


+ 281 Turn your eyes from me,
because they excite me too much.
Your hair is like a flock of goats
streaming down Mount Gilead.

+ 309 Your teeth are white like sheep
just coming from their bath;
each one has a twin,
and none of them is missing.
Song of Solomon 6:6


+ 276 Your cheeks behind your veil are like slices of a pomegranate.

Song of Solomon 6:8


+ 313 But there is only one like my dove, my perfect one.

The young women saw her and called her happy;
the queens and the slave women also praised her.
Song of Solomon 6:9


+ 258 Who is that young woman
that shines out like the dawn?
She is as pretty as the moon,
as bright as the sun,
as wonderful as an army flying flags.

to look for buds on the vines,
to see if the pomegranate trees had bloomed.

+ 264 Before I realized it, my desire for you made me feel like a prince in a chariot.
Song of Solomon 6:12

Come back, come back,
so we may look at you!

like a seal on your arm.

jealousy is as strong as the grave.
Love bursts into flames
and burns like a hot fire.

+ 341 The evidence from anthropology concurs with history in refuting the popular belief in a Jewish race descended from the biblical tribe. From the anthropologist's point of view, two groups of facts militate against this belief: the wide diversity of Jews with regard to physical characteristics, and their similarity to the Gentile population amidst whom they live. Both are reflected in the statistics about bodily height, cranial index, blood-groups, hair and eye colour, etc. Whichever of these anthropological criteria is taken as an indicator, it shows a greater similarity between Jews and their Gentile host-nation than between Jews living in different countries. ...The obvious biological explanation for both phenomena is miscegenation, which took different forms in different historical situations: intermarriage, large-scale proselytizing, rape as a constant (legalized or tolerated) accompaniment of war and pogrom.

+ 170 And Abimelech said, I do not know who did this thing, neither did you tell me, nor did I hear of it until today. Bereshit 21:26


+ 186 And Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering, and he placed it upon his son Isaac, and he took into his hand the fire and the knife, and they both went together. Bereshit 22:6


+ 196 And he said, By Myself have I sworn, says the Lord, that because you have done this thing and you did not withhold your son, your only one, Bereshit 22:16


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


+ 213 And Abraham listened to Ephron, and Abraham weighed out to Ephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, accepted by the merchant. Bereshit 23:16


+ 173 And Abraham said to him, Beware, lest you return my son back there. Bereshit 24:6


+ 195 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


+ 163 And the man kneeled and prostrated himself to the Lord. Bereshit 24:26


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


+ 183 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


+ 180 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


+ 182 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


+ 163 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


+ 174 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


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


+ 197 And Rebecca lifted her eyes, and saw Isaac, and she let herself down from the camel. Bereshit 24:64


+ 179 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


+ 170 And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. Bereshit 24:66


+ 210 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


+ 202 And to the sons of Abraham's concubines, Abraham gave gifts, and he sent them away from his son Isaac while he Abraham was still alive, eastward to the land of the East. Bereshit 25:6


+ 172 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names in their open cities and in their walled cities, twelve princes to their nations. Bereshit 25:16


+ 195 And afterwards, his brother emerged, and his hand was grasping Esau's heel, and he named him Jacob. Now Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them. Bereshit 25:26


+ 206 And there was a famine in the land, aside from the first famine that had been in the days of Abraham, and Isaac went to Abimelech the king of the Philistines, to Gerar. Bereshit 26:1


+ 176 And the Lord appeared to him, and said, Do not go down to Egypt; dwell in the land that I will tell you. Bereshit 26:2


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


+ 188 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


+ 191 Because Abraham hearkened to My voice, and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My instructions. Bereshit 26:5


+ 170 And Isaac dwelt in Gerar. Bereshit 26:6


+ 209 And the men of the place asked about his wife, and he said, She is my sister, because he was afraid to say, She is my wife, because he said, Lest the men of the place kill me because of Rebecca, for she is of comely appearance. Bereshit 26:7


+ 202 And it came to pass, when he had been there for many days, that Abimelech, the king of the Philistines, looked out of the window, and he saw, and behold, Isaac was jesting with Rebecca his wife. Bereshit 26:8


+ 246 So Abimelech called Isaac, and he said, Behold, she is your wife; so how could you have said, She is my sister? And Isaac said to him, Because I said, Lest I die because of her. Bereshit 26:9


+ 194 And Abimelech said, What have you done to us? The most prominent of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us. Bereshit 26:10


+ 247 And Abimelech commanded all the people, saying, Whoever touches this man or his wife shall be put to death. Bereshit 26:11


+ 181 And Isaac sowed in that land, and he found in that year a hundred fold, and the Lord blessed him. Bereshit 26:12


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


+ 178 And he had possessions of sheep and possessions of cattle and much production, and the Philistines envied him. Bereshit 26:14


+ 210 And all the wells that his father's servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father the Philistines stopped them up and filled them with earth. Bereshit 26:15


+ 200 And Abimelech said to Isaac, Go away from us, for you have become much stronger than we. Bereshit 26:16


+ 180 And Isaac went away from there, and he encamped in the valley of Gerar and dwelt there. Bereshit 26:17


+ 213 And Isaac again dug the wells of water which they had dug in the days of his father, Abraham, and the Philistines had stopped them up after Abraham's death; and he gave them names like the names that his father had given them. Bereshit 26:18


+ 187 And Isaac's servants dug in the valley, and they found there a well of living waters. Bereshit 26:19


+ 205 And the shepherds of Gerar quarreled with Isaac's shepherds, saying, The water is ours; so he named the well Esek, because they had contended with him. Bereshit 26:20


+ 178 And they dug another well, and they quarreled about it also; so he named it Sitnah. Bereshit 26:21


+ 176 And he moved away from there, and he dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it; so he named it Rehoboth, and he said, For now the Lord has made room for us, and we will be fruitful in the land. Bereshit 26:22


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


+ 191 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


+ 209 And he built an altar there, and he called in the name of the Lord, and he pitched his tent there, and Isaac's servants dug a well there. Bereshit 26:25


+ 148 And Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and a group of his companions and Pichol, his general. Bereshit 26:26


+ 194 And Isaac said to them, Why have you come to me, since you hate me, and you sent me away from you? Bereshit 26:27


+ 178 And they said, We have seen that the Lord was with you; so we said: Let there now be an oath between us, between ourselves and you, and let us form a covenant with you. Bereshit 26:28


+ 193 If you do not harm us, as we have not touched you, and as we have done with you only good, and we sent you away in peace, so do you now, blessed of the Lord. Bereshit 26:29


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


+ 203 And they arose early in the morning, and they swore one to the other, and Isaac escorted them, and they went away from him in peace. Bereshit 26:31


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


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


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


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


+ 202 And Rebecca said to Jacob her son, saying, Behold I have heard your father speaking to Esau your brother, saying, Bereshit 27:6


+ 174 And the hides of the kids she put on his hands and on the smoothness of his neck. Bereshit 27:16


+ 196 And his father Isaac said to him, Please come closer and kiss me, my son. Bereshit 27:26


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


+ 218 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


+ 237 And Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Padan aram, to take himself a wife from there, and that when he blessed him, he commanded him, saying, You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Bereshit 28:6


+ 196 And Jacob awakened from his sleep, and he said, Indeed, the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it. Bereshit 28:16


+ 169 And he said to them, Are things going well with him? And they said, Things are going well, and behold, his daughter Rachel is coming with the sheep. Bereshit 29:6


+ 186 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Bereshit 29:16


+ 162 And Laban said, It is not done so in our place to give the younger one before the firstborn. Bereshit 29:26


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


+ 212 When Jacob came from the field in the evening, and Leah came forth toward him, and she said, You shall come to me, because I have hired you with my son's dudaim, and he slept with her on that night. Bereshit 30:16


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


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


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


+ 184 But all the wealth that God separated from our father is ours and our children's. So now, all that God said to you, do. Bereshit 31:16


+ 218 And Laban said to Jacob, What have you done, that you concealed from me, and led away my daughters like prisoners of war? Bereshit 31:26


+ 192 And Jacob was annoyed, and he quarreled with Laban, and he said to Laban, What is my transgression? What is my sin, that you have pursued me? Bereshit 31:36


+ 174 And Jacob said to his kinsmen, Gather stones, and they took stones and made a pile, and they ate there by the pile. Bereshit 31:46


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


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


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


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


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


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


+ 157 Then we will give you our daughters, and we will take your daughters for ourselves, and we will dwell with you and become one people. Bereshit 34:16


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


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


+ 149 And they journeyed from Beth el, and there was still some distance to come to Ephrath, and Rachel gave birth, and her labor was difficult. Bereshit 35:16


+ 175 The sons of Zilpah, Leah's maidservant: Gad and Asher. These are Jacob's sons who were born to him in Padan aram. Bereshit 35:26


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


+ 144 These are the names of Esau's sons: Eliphaz, son of Adah, the wife of Esau, Reuel, son of Basemath, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:10


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


+ 145 And Timna was a concubine to Eliphaz, son of Esau, and she bore to Eliphaz, Amalek. These are the sons of Adah, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:12


+ 167 And these are the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These are the sons of Basemath, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:13


+ 165 And these are the sons of Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, daughter of Zibeon, the wife of Esau; she bore to Esau: Jeush, Jaalam, and Korah. Bereshit 36:14


+ 151 These became the chieftains of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz, Esau's firstborn: Chief Teman, Chief Omar, Chief Zepho, Chief Kenaz, Bereshit 36:15


+ 152 Chief Korah, Chief Gaatam, Chief Amalek. These are the chieftains of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Adah. Bereshit 36:16

+ 149 And these are the sons of Oholibamah, the wife of Esau: Chief Jeush, Chief Jaalam, Chief Korah. These are the chieftains of Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:18


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


+ 156 Bela died, and Jobab, son of Zerah of Bozrah, reigned in his stead. Bereshit 36:33


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


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


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


+ 133 Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead. Bereshit 36:37


+ 129 Saul died, and Baal Hanan, son of Achbor, reigned in his stead. Bereshit 36:38


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


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


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


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


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


+ 143 And he said to them, Listen now to this dream, which I have dreamed: Bereshit 37:6


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


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


+ 145 And the Midianites sold him to Egypt, to Potiphar, Pharaoh's chamberlain, chief of the slaughterers. Bereshit 37:36


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


+ 171 So he turned aside toward her to the road, and he said, Get ready now, I will come to you, for he did not know that she was his daughter in law, and she said, What will you give me that you should come to me? Bereshit 38:16


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


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


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


+ 137 And Joseph came to them in the morning, and he saw them and behold, they were troubled. Bereshit 40:6


+ 203 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


+ 162 And behold, seven ears of grain, thin and beaten by the east wind, were growing up after them. Bereshit 41:6


+ 145 And Joseph replied to Pharaoh, saying, Not I; God will give an answer that will bring peace to Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:16


+ 148 The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good ears of grain are seven years; it is one dream. Bereshit 41:26


+ 151 Thus the food will remain as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which will be in the land of Egypt, so that the land will not be destroyed by the famine." Bereshit 41:36


+ 163 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


+ 187 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


+ 157 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


+ 153 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


+ 154 And they loaded their grain upon their donkeys, and they went away from there. Bereshit 42:26


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


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


+ 161 When Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the overseer of his house, Bring the men into the house and give orders to slaughter an animal and to prepare, for the men will eat with me at lunch. Bereshit 43:16


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


+ 131 He overtook them, and he said these words to them. Bereshit 44:6


+ 176 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


+ 167 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


+ 180 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


+ 154 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


+ 161 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 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


+ 161 And God said to Israel in visions of the night, and He said, "Jacob, Jacob!" And he said, "Here I am." Bereshit 46:2


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


+ 137 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


+ 202 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


+ 196 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


+ 137 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


+ 184 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


+ 148 And the sons of Reuben were Hanoch and Pallu, Hezron and Carmi. Bereshit 46:9


+ 139 And the sons of Simeon were Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, and Zohar, and Saul the son of the Canaanitess. Bereshit 46:10


+ 145 And the sons of Levi were Gershon, Kehath, and Merari. Bereshit 46:11


+ 166 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


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


+ 132 And the sons of Zebulun were Sered, Elon, and Jahleel. Bereshit 46:14


+ 171 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


+ 144 And the sons of Gad were Ziphion, Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, Arodi, and Areli. Bereshit 46:16


+ 160 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


+ 213 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Leah, and she bore these to Jacob, sixteen souls. Bereshit 46:18


+ 157 The sons of Rachel, Jacob's wife, were Joseph and Benjamin. Bereshit 46:19


+ 156 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


+ 149 And the sons of Benjamin were Bela, Becher, Ashbel, Gera, Na'aman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, Huppim, and Ard. Bereshit 46:21


+ 139 These the sons of Rachel, who were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen. Bereshit 46:22


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


+ 151 And the sons of Naphtali were Jahzeel, Guni, Jezer, and Shillem. Bereshit 46:24


+ 196 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


+ 177 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


+ 163 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


+ 218 He sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph, to direct him to Goshen, and they came to the land of Goshen. Bereshit 46:28


+ 150 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


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


+ 145 Joseph said to his brothers and to his father's household, I will go up and tell Pharaoh, and I will say to him, My brothers and my father's household who were in the land of Canaan have come to me. Bereshit 46:31


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


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


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


+ 229 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


+ 149 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


+ 180 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


+ 149 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


+ 210 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


+ 168 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


+ 141 Dan will avenge his people, like one, the tribes of Israel. Bereshit 49:16


+ 198 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


+ 127 And Pharaoh said, Go up and bury your father as he adjured you. Bereshit 50:6


+ 143 So they commanded messengers to go to Joseph, to say, Your father commanded us before his death, saying, Bereshit 50:16


+ 199 And Joseph died at the age of one hundred ten years, and they embalmed him and he was placed into the coffin in Egypt. Bereshit 50:26


+ 180 Now Joseph died, as well as all his brothers and all that generation. Shemot 1:6


+ 170 And he said, When you deliver the Hebrew women, and you see on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall put him to death, but if it is a daughter, she may live. Shemot 1:16


+ 176 She opened it, and she saw him the child, and behold, he was a weeping lad, and she had compassion on him, and she said, This is one of the children of the Hebrews. Shemot 2:6


+ 137 Now the chief of Midian had seven daughters, and they came and drew water, and they filled the troughs to water their father's flocks. Shemot 2:16


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


+ 175 Go and assemble the elders of Israel, and say to them, The Lord God of your forefathers has appeared to me, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, I have surely remembered you and what is being done to you in Egypt. Shemot 3:16


+ 145 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


+ 130 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


+ 145 So He released him. Then she said, A bridegroom of blood concerning the circumcision. Shemot 4:26


+ 154 So, on that day, Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people and their officers, saying, Shemot 5:6


+ 183 Stubble is not given to your servants, but they tell us, Make bricks, and behold, your servants are beaten, and your people are sinning. Shemot 5:16


+ 154 And the Lord said to Moses, Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh, for with a mighty hand he will send them out, and with a mighty hand he will drive them out of his land. Shemot 6:1


+ 130 God spoke to Moses, and He said to him, I am the Lord. Shemot 6:2


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


+ 148 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


+ 160 And also, I heard the moans of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians are holding in bondage, and I remembered My covenant. Shemot 6:5


+ 160 Therefore, say to the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will take you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will save you from their labor, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. Shemot 6:6


+ 143 And I will take you to Me as a people, and I will be a God to you, and you will know that I am the Lord your God, Who has brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. Shemot 6:7


+ 173 I will bring you to the land, concerning which I raised My hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, and I will give it to you as a heritage; I am the Lord. Shemot 6:8


+ 140 Moses spoke thus to the children of Israel, but they did not hearken to Moses because of their shortness of breath and because of their hard labor. Shemot 6:9


+ 138 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 6:10


+ 143 Come, speak to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and he will let the children of Israel out of his land. Shemot 6:11


+ 175 But Moses spoke before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of Israel did not hearken to me. How then will Pharaoh hearken to me, seeing that I am of closed lips? Shemot 6:12


+ 164 So the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, and He commanded them concerning the children of Israel and concerning Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to let the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 6:13


+ 159 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


+ 147 And the sons of Simeon: Jemuel and Jamin and Ohad and Jachin and Zohar and Saul, the son of the Canaanitess, these are the families of Simeon. Shemot 6:15


+ 165 And these are the names of Levi's sons after their generations: Gershon, Kehath, and Merari, and the years of Levi's life were one hundred thirty seven years. Shemot 6:16


+ 156 The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei to their families. Shemot 6:17


+ 158 And the sons of Kehath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel, and the years of Kehath's life were one hundred thirty three years. Shemot 6:18


+ 143 And the sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi; these are the families of the Levites according to their generations. Shemot 6:19


+ 153 Amram took Jochebed, his aunt, as his wife, and she bore him Aaron and Moses, and the years of Amram's life were one hundred thirty seven years. Shemot 6:20


+ 135 And the sons of Izhar were Korah and Nepheg and Zichri. Shemot 6:21


+ 173 And the sons of Uzziel were Mishael, Elzaphan, and Sithri. Shemot 6:22


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


+ 142 And the sons of Korah were Assir, Elkanah and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korahites. Shemot 6:24


+ 181 Eleazar, the son of Aaron, took himself one of the daughters of Putiel to himself as a wife, and she bore him Phinehas; these are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites according to their families. Shemot 6:25


+ 146 That is Aaron and Moses, to whom the Lord said, Take the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt with their legions. Shemot 6:26


+ 149 They are the ones who spoke to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to let the children of Israel out of Egypt; they are Moses and Aaron. Shemot 6:27


+ 117 Now it came to pass on the day that the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, Shemot 6:28


+ 127 That the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, I am the Lord. Speak to Pharaoh everything that I speak to you. Shemot 6:29


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


+ 143 Moses and Aaron did; as the Lord commanded them, so they did. Shemot 7:6


+ 172 And you shall say to him, The Lord God of the Hebrews sent me to you, saying, Send forth My people, so that they may serve Me in the desert, but behold, until now, you have not hearkened. Shemot 7:16


+ 154 The Lord said to Moses, Come to Pharaoh and say to him, So said the Lord, Let My people go, so that they may serve Me. Shemot 7:26


+ 176 And Pharaoh said, For tomorrow. And Moses said, As you say, in order that you should know that there is none like the Lord, our God. Shemot 8:6


+ 164 And the Lord said to Moses, Arise early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh, behold, he is going out to the water, and you shall say to him, So said the Lord, Let My people go out and serve Me. Shemot 8:16


+ 161 So Moses went away from Pharaoh and entreated the Lord. Shemot 8:26


+ 146 God did this thing on the morrow, and all the livestock of the Egyptians died, but of the livestock of the children of Israel not one died. Shemot 9:6


+ 150 But, for this reason I have allowed you to stand, in order to show you My strength and in order to declare My name all over the earth. Shemot 9:16


+ 146 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail. Shemot 9:26


+ 173 And your houses and the houses of all your servants and the houses of all the Egyptians will be filled, which your fathers and your fathers fathers did not see since the day they were on the earth until this day. Therewith, he turned and left Pharaoh. Shemot 10:6


+ 163 Pharaoh hastened to summon Moses and Aaron, and he said, I have sinned against the Lord your God and against you. Shemot 10:16


+ 165 And also our cattle will go with us; not a single hoof will remain, for we will take from it to worship the Lord our God, and we do not know how much we will worship the Lord until we arrive there. Shemot 10:26


+ 151 And there will be a great cry throughout the entire land of Egypt, such as there never has been and such as there shall never be again. Shemot 11:6


+ 155 And you shall keep it for inspection until the fourteenth day of this month, and the entire congregation of the community of Israel shall slaughter it in the afternoon. Shemot 12:6


+ 138 And on the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation; no work may be performed on them, but what is eaten by any soul that alone may be performed for you. Shemot 12:16


+ 130 And it will come to pass if your children say to you, What is this service to you? Shemot 12:26


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


+ 137 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


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


+ 121 And it shall be for a sign upon your hand and for ornaments between your eyes, for with a mighty hand did the Lord take us out of Egypt. Shemot 13:16


+ 120 So he harnessed his chariot, and took his people with him. Shemot 14:6


+ 131 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


+ 140 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


+ 122 Your right hand, O Lord, is most powerful; Your right hand, O Lord, crushes the foe. Shemot 15:6


+ 157 May dread and fright fall upon them; with the arm of Your greatness may they become as still as a stone, until Your people cross over, O Lord, until this nation that You have acquired crosses over. Shemot 15:16


+ 182 And He said, If you hearken to the voice of the Lord, your God, and you do what is proper in His eyes, and you listen closely to His commandments and observe all His statutes, all the sicknesses that I have visited upon Egypt I will not visit upon you, for I, the Lord, heal you. Shemot 15:26


+ 160 They journeyed from Elim, and the entire community of the children of Israel came to the desert of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departure from the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:1


+ 140 The entire community of the children of Israel complained against Moses and against Aaron in the desert. Shemot 16:2


+ 181 The children of Israel said to them, If only we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by pots of meat, when we ate bread to our fill! For you have brought us out into this desert, to starve this entire congregation to death. Shemot 16:3


+ 170 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


+ 127 And it shall be on the sixth day that when they prepare what they will bring, it will be double of what they gather every day. Shemot 16:5


+ 144 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, In the evening, you shall know that the Lord brought you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:6


+ 149 And in the morning, you shall see the glory of the Lord when He hears your complaints against the Lord but of what significance are we, that you make the people complain against us? Shemot 16:7


+ 181 And Moses said, When the Lord gives you in the evening meat to eat and bread in the morning with which to become sated, when the Lord hears your complaints, which you are making the people complain against Him, but of what significance are we? Not against us are your complaints, but against the Lord. Shemot 16:8


+ 155 And Moses said to Aaron, Say to the entire community of the children of Israel, Draw near before the Lord, for He has heard your complaints. Shemot 16:9


+ 139 And it came to pass when Aaron spoke to the entire community of the children of Israel, that they turned toward the desert, and behold! the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud. Shemot 16:10


+ 129 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 16:11


+ 164 I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, In the afternoon you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be sated with bread, and you shall know that I am the Lord, your God. Shemot 16:12


+ 117 It came to pass in the evening that the quails went up and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. Shemot 16:13


+ 133 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


+ 143 When the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, It is manna, because they did not know what it was, and Moses said to them, It is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat. Shemot 16:15


+ 130 This is the thing that the Lord has commanded, Gather of it each one according to his eating capacity, an omer for each person, according to the number of persons, each one for those in his tent you shall take. Shemot 16:16


+ 140 And the children of Israel did so: they gathered, both the one who gathered much and the one who gathered little. Shemot 16:17


+ 136 And they measured it with an omer, and whoever gathered much did not have more, and whoever gathered little did not have less; each one according to his eating capacity, they gathered. Shemot 16:18


+ 117 And Moses said to them, Let no one leave over any of it until morning. Shemot 16:19


+ 134 But some men did not obey Moses and left over some of it until morning, and it bred worms and became putrid, and Moses became angry with them. Shemot 16:20


+ 107 They gathered it morning by morning, each one according to his eating capacity, and when the sun grew hot, it melted. Shemot 16:21


+ 155 It came to pass on the sixth day that they gathered a double portion of bread, two omers for each one, and all the princes of the community came and reported it to Moses. Shemot 16:22


+ 153 So he said to them, That is what the Lord spoke, Tomorrow is a rest day, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Bake whatever you wish to bake, and cook whatever you wish to cook, and all the rest leave over to keep until morning. Shemot 16:23


+ 136 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


+ 133 And Moses said, Eat it today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field. Shemot 16:25


+ 169 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day which is the Sabbath on it there will be none. Shemot 16:26


+ 124 It came about that on the seventh day, some of the people went out to gather manna, but they did not find any. Shemot 16:27


+ 141 The Lord said to Moses, How long will you refuse to observe My commandments and My teachings? Shemot 16:28


+ 152 See that the Lord has given you the Sabbath. Therefore, on the sixth day, He gives you bread for two days. Let each man remain in his place; let no man leave his place on the seventh day. Shemot 16:29


+ 121 So the people rested on the seventh day. Shemot 16:30


+ 148 The house of Israel named it manna, and it was like coriander seed, it was white, and it tasted like a wafer with honey. Shemot 16:31


+ 155 Moses said, This is the thing that the Lord commanded: Let one omerful of it be preserved for your generations, in order that they see the bread that I fed you in the desert when I took you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:32


+ 140 And Moses said to Aaron, Take one jug and put there an omerful of manna, and deposit it before the Lord to be preserved for your generations. Shemot 16:33


+ 141 As the Lord had commanded Moses, Aaron deposited it before the testimony to be preserved. Shemot 16:34


+ 154 And the children of Israel ate the manna for forty years until they came to an inhabited land. They ate the manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan. Shemot 16:35


+ 110 The omer is one tenth of an ephah. Shemot 16:36


+ 149 Behold, I shall stand there before you on the rock in Horeb, and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, and the people will drink Moses did so before the eyes of the elders of Israel. Shemot 17:6


+ 147 And he said, For there is a hand on the throne of the Eternal, that there shall be a war for the Lord against Amalek from generation to generation. Shemot 17:16


+ 146 And he said to Moses, I, Jethro, your father in law, am coming to you, and so is your wife and her two sons with her. Shemot 18:6


+ 111 If any of them has a case, he comes to me, and I judge between a man and his neighbor, and I make known the statutes of God and His teachings. Shemot 18:16


+ 143 And they would judge the people at all times; the difficult case they would bring to Moses, but any minor case they themselves would judge. Shemot 18:26


+ 134 And you shall be to Me a kingdom of princes and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the children of Israel. Shemot 19:6


+ 142 It came to pass on the third day when it was morning, that there were thunder claps and lightning flashes, and a thick cloud was upon the mountain, and a very powerful blast of a shofar, and the entire nation that was in the camp shuddered. Shemot 19:16


+ 169 And I perform loving kindness to thousands of generations, to those who love Me and to those who keep My commandments. Shemot 20:6


+ 146 They said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear, but let God not speak with us lest we die. Shemot 20:16


+ 127 His master shall bring him to the judges, and he shall bring him to the door or to the doorpost, and his master shall bore his ear with an awl, and he shall serve him forever. Shemot 21:6


+ 114 And whoever kidnaps a man, and he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:16


+ 143 And if a man strikes the eye of his manservant or the eye of his maidservant and destroys it, he shall set him free in return for his eye, Shemot 21:26


+ 135 Or if it was known that it was a habitually goring bull since yesterday and the day before yesterday, and its owner does not watch it, he shall surely pay a bull for a bull, and the dead body shall be his. Shemot 21:36


+ 146 If a man gives his neighbor money or articles for safekeeping, and it is stolen from the man's house, if the thief is found, he shall pay twofold. Shemot 22:6


+ 143 If her father refuses to give her to him in marriage, he shall weigh out money according to the dowry of the virgins. Shemot 22:16


+ 148 For it is his only covering; it is his garment for his skin. With what shall he lie? And it shall be that if he cries out to Me, I will hear because I am gracious. Shemot 22:26


+ 140 You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor man in his lawsuit. Shemot 23:6


+ 152 And the festival of the harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you will sow in the field, and the festival of the ingathering at the departure of the year, when you gather in the products of your labors from the field. Shemot 23:16


+ 126 There will be no bereaved or barren woman in your land; I will fill the number of your days. Shemot 23:26


+ 130 And Moses took half the blood and put it into the basins, and half the blood he cast onto the altar. Shemot 24:6


+ 142 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


+ 120 Oil for lighting, spices for the anointing oil and for the incense; Shemot 25:6


+ 126 And you shall place into the ark the testimony, which I will give you. Shemot 25:16


+ 129 And you shall make for it four golden rings, and you shall place the rings on the four corners that are on its four legs. Shemot 25:26


+ 143 Their knobs and their branches shall all be one piece with it; all of it shall be one hammered mass of pure gold. Shemot 25:36


+ 143 And the Mishkan you shall make out of ten curtains consisting of twisted fine linen, and blue, purple, and crimson wool. A cherubim design of the work of a master weaver you shall make them. Shemot 26:1


+ 126 The length of one curtain shall be twenty eight cubits, and the width of one curtain shall be four cubits; the same measure for all the curtains. Shemot 26:2


+ 147 Five of these curtains shall be joined to one another, and the other five curtains shall also be joined to one another. Shemot 26:3


+ 122 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


+ 141 You shall make fifty loops on the edge of one curtain, and you shall make fifty loops on the edge of the curtain in the second set; the loops shall correspond to one another. Shemot 26:5


+ 133 And you shall make fifty golden clasps, and you shall fasten the curtains to one another with the clasps; so shall the Mishkan become one. Shemot 26:6


+ 122 And then you shall make curtains of goat hair for a tent over the Mishkan; you shall make eleven curtains. Shemot 26:7


+ 134 The length of one curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the width of one curtain four cubits; the same measure for the eleven curtains. Shemot 26:8


+ 119 And you shall join the five curtains by themselves, and the other six curtains by themselves; and you shall fold the sixth curtain before the front of the tent. Shemot 26:9


+ 131 And you shall make fifty loops on the edge of one curtain, which is at the edge of the first set, and fifty loops on the edge of the outermost curtain of the second set. Shemot 26:10


+ 137 And you shall make fifty copper clasps; you shall bring the clasps into the loops, and you shall fasten the tent together so that it will become one. Shemot 26:11


+ 127 And the overhanging excess in the curtains of the tent half of the extra curtain shall hang over the rear of the Mishkan. Shemot 26:12


+ 128 And the cubit from here and the cubit from there of the excess in the length of the curtains of the tent shall hang over the sides of the Mishkan from here and from there to cover it. Shemot 26:13


+ 120 And you shall make a covering for the tent of ram skins dyed red and a covering of tachash skins above. Shemot 26:14


+ 128 And you shall make the planks for the Mishkan of acacia wood, upright. Shemot 26:15


+ 136 Ten cubits shall be the length of each plank, and a cubit and a half shall be the width of each plank. Shemot 26:16


+ 134 Each plank shall have two square pegs, rung like, one even with the other; so shall you make all the planks of the Mishkan. Shemot 26:17


+ 124 And you shall make the planks for the Mishkan, twenty planks for the southern side. Shemot 26:18


+ 128 And you shall make forty silver sockets under the twenty planks; two sockets under one plank for its two square pegs, and two sockets under one plank for its two square pegs. Shemot 26:19


+ 112 And for the second side of the Mishkan on the northern side twenty planks. Shemot 26:20


+ 137 And their forty silver sockets: two sockets under one plank and two sockets under one plank. Shemot 26:21


+ 143 And for the western end of the Mishkan you shall make six planks. Shemot 26:22


+ 130 And you shall make two planks at the corners of the Mishkan at the end. Shemot 26:23


+ 157 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


+ 136 And there shall be eight planks and their silver sockets, sixteen sockets two sockets under one plank and two sockets under one plank. Shemot 26:25


+ 139 And you shall make bars of acacia wood, five for the planks of one side of the Mishkan, Shemot 26:26


+ 114 And five bars for the planks of the second side of the Mishkan, and five bars for the planks of the rear side of the Mishkan, on the westward end. Shemot 26:27


+ 145 And the middle bar in the midst of the planks shall extend and penetrate from one end to the other end. Shemot 26:28


+ 160 And you shall overlay the planks with gold, and their rings you shall make of gold as holders for the bars, and you shall overlay the bars with gold. Shemot 26:29


+ 129 And you shall erect the Mishkan according to its proper manner, as you will have been shown on the mountain. Shemot 26:30


+ 142 And you shall make a dividing curtain of blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen; the work of a master weaver he shall make it, in a woven cherubim design. Shemot 26:31


+ 144 And you shall place it on four pillars of acacia wood, overlaid with gold, their hooks shall be gold, on four silver sockets. Shemot 26:32


+ 140 And you shall place the dividing curtain beneath the clasps. You shall bring there on the inner side of the dividing curtain the Ark of the Testimony, and the dividing curtain shall separate for you between the Holy and the Holy of Holies. Shemot 26:33


+ 132 And you shall place the ark cover over the Ark of the Testimony in the Holy of Holies. Shemot 26:34


+ 148 And you shall place the table on the outer side of the dividing curtain and the menorah opposite the table, on the southern side of the Mishkan, and you shall place the table on the northern side. Shemot 26:35

+ 118 You shall place the cap upon his head and place the holy crown upon the cap. Shemot 29:6


+ 125 You shall slaughter the ram, and you shall take its blood and sprinkle it on the altar all around. Shemot 29:16


+ 128 And you shall take the breast of the ram of perfection which is Aaron's, and wave it as a waving before the Lord, and it will become your portion. Shemot 29:26


+ 133 And a bull as a sin offering you shall offer up every day for the atonements, and you shall purify the altar by performing atonement upon it, and you shall anoint it, in order to sanctify it. Shemot 29:36


+ 121 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


+ 150 And you shall place it in front of the dividing curtain, which is upon the Ark of Testimony, in front of the ark cover, which is upon the testimony, where I will arrange to meet with you. Shemot 30:6


+ 137 You shall take the silver of the atonements from the children of Israel and use it for the work of the Tent of Meeting; it shall be a remembrance for the children of Israel before the Lord, to atone for your souls. Shemot 30:16


+ 104 And you shall anoint with it the Tent of Meeting and the Ark of Testimony, Shemot 30:26


+ 119 And you shall crush some of it very finely, and you shall set some of it before the testimony in the Tent of Meeting, where I will arrange meetings with you; it shall be to you a holy of holies. Shemot 30:36


+ 149 And, behold, with him I have placed Oholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, and all the wise hearted into whose hearts I have instilled wisdom, and they shall make everything I have commanded you: Shemot 31:6


+ 86 Thus shall the children of Israel observe the Sabbath, to make the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. Shemot 31:16


+ 120 On the next day they arose early, offered up burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings, and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and they got up to make merry. Shemot 32:6


+ 99 Now the tablets were God's work, and the inscription was God's inscription, engraved on the tablets. Shemot 32:16


+ 138 So Moses stood in the gate of the camp and said: Whoever is for the Lord, let him come to me! And all the sons of Levi gathered around him. Shemot 32:26


+ 106 So the children of Israel divested themselves of their finery from Mount Horeb. Shemot 33:6


+ 130 For how then will it be known that I have found favor in Your eyes, I and Your people? Is it not in that You will go with us? Then I and Your people will be distinguished from every other nation on the face of the earth. Shemot 33:16


+ 119 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed: Lord, Lord, benevolent God, Who is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness and truth, Shemot 34:6


+ 98 And you take of their daughters for your sons; then their daughters will go astray after their gods and lead your sons astray after their gods. Shemot 34:16


+ 127 The choicest of the first of your soil you shall bring to the house of the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Shemot 34:26


+ 73 And blue, purple, and crimson wool; and linen and goat hair; Shemot 35:6


+ 94 The altar for the burnt offering, its copper grating, its poles and all its implements, the washstand and its base; Shemot 35:16


+ 122 Bezalel and Oholiab and every wise hearted man into whom God had imbued wisdom and insight to know how to do, shall do all the work of the service of the Holy, according to all that the Lord has commanded. Shemot 36:1


+ 174 And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every wise hearted man into whose heart the Lord had given wisdom, everyone whose heart lifted him up to approach the work to do it. Shemot 36:2


+ 127 So they took from before Moses all the offerings that the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the Holy, and they brought him more gifts every morning. Shemot 36:3


+ 102 Then all the wise men who were doing the work of the Holy came, each one from his work, which they had been doing. Shemot 36:4


+ 134 And they spoke to Moses, saying: The people are bringing very much, more than is enough for the labor of the articles which the Lord had commanded to do. Shemot 36:5


+ 120 So Moses commanded, and they announced in the camp, saying: Let no man or woman do any more work for the offering for the Holy. So the people stopped bringing. Shemot 36:6


+ 106 And the work was sufficient for them for all the work, to do it and to leave over. Shemot 36:7


+ 128 Then all the wise hearted people of the performers of the work made the Mishkan out of ten curtains consisting of twisted fine linen, and blue, purple, and crimson wool. A cherubim design, the work of a master weaver he made them. Shemot 36:8


+ 103 The length of one curtain was twenty eight cubits, and the width of one curtain was four cubits the same measure for all the curtains. Shemot 36:9


+ 85 And he joined five of these curtains to one another, and the other five curtains he also joined to one another. Shemot 36:10


+ 106 And he made loops of blue wool on the edge of one curtain that is at the edge of the first set, and he did the same on the edge of the outermost curtain of the second set. Shemot 36:11


+ 114 He made fifty loops on the edge of one curtain, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain in the second set; the loops corresponded to one another. Shemot 36:12


+ 97 And he made fifty golden clasps, and he fastened the curtains to one another with the clasps; so the Mishkan became one. Shemot 36:13


+ 92 And then he made curtains of goat hair for a tent over the Mishkan; he made them eleven curtains. Shemot 36:14


+ 103 The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and the width of one curtain was four cubits; the same measure for the eleven curtains. Shemot 36:15

+ 226 And the kohen shall cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, consumed as a fire offering, with a pleasing fragrance. All sacrificial fat belongs to the Lord. Vayikra 3:16


+ 112 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


+ 111 The anointed kohen shall bring some of the bull's blood into the Tent of Meeting, Vayikra 4:16

+ 127 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 6:12


+ 139 This is the offering of Aaron and his sons, which they shall offer to the Lord, on the day when one of them is anointed: One tenth of an ephah of fine flour for a perpetual meal offering, half of it in the morning and half of it in the evening. Vayikra 6:13


+ 139 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


+ 151 And the kohen who is anointed instead of him from among his sons, shall prepare it; this is an eternal statute; it shall be completely burnt to the Lord. Vayikra 6:15


+ 117 Every meal offering of a kohen shall be completely burnt; it shall not be eaten. Vayikra 6:16


+ 114 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 6:17


+ 136 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin offering: The sin offering shall be slaughtered before the Lord in the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered. It is a holy of holies. Vayikra 6:18

+ 119 And out of the basket of unleavened bread that was before the Lord, he took one loaf of unleavened bread, and one loaf of oily bread, and one wafer, and he placed them on top of the fats and the right thigh. Vayikra 8:26


+ 121 And Aaron and his sons did all the things that the Lord commanded through Moses. Vayikra 8:36


+ 112 And Moses said, This is the thing the Lord has commanded; do it, and the glory of the Lord will appear to you. Vayikra 9:6


+ 108 And he brought forward the burnt offering and prepared it according to the law. Vayikra 9:16

+ 110 You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you; Vayikra 26:7


+ 94 Five of you will pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you will pursue ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you. Vayikra 26:8


+ 99 I will turn towards you, and I will make you fruitful and increase you, and I will set up My covenant with you. Vayikra 26:9


+ 97 You will eat very old produce, and you will clear out the old from before the new. Vayikra 26:10


+ 96 And I will place My dwelling in your midst, and My Spirit will not reject you; Vayikra 26:11


+ 95 I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be My people. Vayikra 26:12


+ 106 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt from being slaves to them; and I broke the pegs of your yoke and led you upright. Vayikra 26:13


+ 98 But if you do not listen to Me and do not perform all these commandments, Vayikra 26:14


+ 126 And if you despise My statutes and reject My ordinances, not performing any of My commandments, thereby breaking My covenant Vayikra 26:15


+ 117 Then I too, will do the same to you; I will order upon you shock, consumption, fever, and diseases that cause hopeless longing and depression. You will sow your seed in vain, and your enemies will eat it. Vayikra 26:16


+ 100 I will set My attention against you, and you will be smitten before your enemies. Your enemies will rule over you; you will flee, but no one will be pursuing you. Vayikra 26:17


+ 107 And if, during these, you will not listen to Me, I will add another seven punishments for your sins: Vayikra 26:18


+ 99 I will break the pride of your strength and make your skies like iron and your land like copper. Vayikra 26:19


+ 118 Your strength will be expended in vain; your land will not yield its produce, neither will the tree of the earth give forth its fruit. Vayikra 26:20


+ 110 And if you treat Me as happenstance, and you do not wish to listen to Me, I will add seven punishments corresponding to your sins: Vayikra 26:21


+ 118 I will incite the wild beasts of the field against you, and they will bereave you, utterly destroy your livestock and diminish you, and your roads will become desolate. Vayikra 26:22


+ 98 And if, through these, you will still not be chastised to return to Me, and if you continue to treat Me happenstance, Vayikra 26:23


+ 100 Then I too, will treat you as happenstance. I will again add seven punishments for your sins: Vayikra 26:24


+ 128 I will bring upon you an army that avenges the avenging of a covenant, and you will gather into your cities. I will incite the plague in your midst, and you will be delivered into the enemy's hands, Vayikra 26:25


+ 108 When I break for you the staff of bread, and ten women will bake your bread in one oven, and they will bring back your bread by weight, and you will eat, yet not be satisfied. Vayikra 26:26


+ 148 And if, despite this, you still do not listen to Me, still treating Me as happenstance, Vayikra 26:27


+ 127 I will treat you with a fury of happenstance, adding again seven chastisements for your sins: Vayikra 26:28


+ 105 You will eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters you will eat. Vayikra 26:29


+ 119 I will demolish your edifices and cut down your sun idols; I will make your corpses fall upon the corpses of your idols, and My Spirit will reject you. Vayikra 26:30


+ 114 I will lay your cities waste and make your holy places desolate, and I will not partake of your pleasant fragrances. Vayikra 26:31


+ 92 I will make the Land desolate, so that it will become desolate also of your enemies who live in it. Vayikra 26:32


+ 118 And I will scatter you among the nations, and I will unsheathe the sword after you. Your land will be desolate, and your cities will be laid waste. Vayikra 26:33


+ 140 Then, the land will be appeased regarding its sabbaticals. During all the days that it remains desolate while you are in the land of your enemies, the Land will rest and thus appease its sabbaticals. Vayikra 26:34


+ 114 It will rest during all the days that it remains desolate, whatever it had not rested on your sabbaticals, when you lived upon it. Vayikra 26:35


+ 132 And those of you who survive I will bring fear in their hearts in the lands of their enemies, and the sound of a rustling leaf will pursue them; they will flee as one flees the sword, and they will fall, but there will be no pursuer. Vayikra 26:36


+ 132 Each man will stumble over his brother, fleeing as if from the sword, but without a pursuer. You will not be able to stand up against your enemies. Vayikra 26:37


+ 95 You will become lost among the nations, and the land of your enemies will consume you. Vayikra 26:38


+ 118 And because of their iniquity, those of you who survive will rot away in the lands of your enemies; moreover, they will rot away because the iniquities of their fathers are still within them. Vayikra 26:39


+ 118 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


+ 125 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


+ 128 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


+ 119 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


+ 121 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


+ 96 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


+ 138 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


+ 112 And if the person is from one month old until five years old, the value of a male shall be five silver shekels, while the value of a female shall be three silver shekels; Vayikra 27:6


+ 122 And if a man consecrates some of the field of his inherited property to the Lord, the valuation shall be according to its sowing: an area which requires a chomer of barley seeds at fifty silver shekels. Vayikra 27:16


+ 110 However, a firstborn animal that must be sacrificed as a firstborn to the Lord no man may consecrate it; whether it be an ox or sheep, it belongs to the Lord. Vayikra 27:26


+ 112 For Simeon, Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. Bamidbar 1:6


+ 113 These were the ones summoned by the congregation, the princes of the tribes of their fathers; they are the heads of the thousands of Israel. Bamidbar 1:16


+ 121 Of the tribe of Judah, 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 1:26


+ 118 Of the tribe of Benjamin, 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 1:36


+ 106 The sum of all those who were counted: six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty. Bamidbar 1:46


+ 93 His legion numbered fifty four thousand, four hundred. Bamidbar 2:6


+ 99 The total sum for the legions of Reuben's camp was one hundred and fifty one thousand, four hundred and fifty; they shall be the second to set out. Bamidbar 2:16


+ 92 His legion numbered sixty two thousand, seven hundred. Bamidbar 2:26


+ 90 Bring forth the tribe of Levi and present them before Aaron the kohen, that they may serve him. Bamidbar 3:6


+ 106 So Moses counted them according to God's word, just as he was commanded. Bamidbar 3:16


+ 107 The hangings of the courtyard, the screen at the entrance to the courtyard, which is around the Mishkan and the altar, its ropes, as well as all the work involved. Bamidbar 3:26


+ 112 The appointment of the charge of the sons of Merari included the planks of the Mishkan, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets, all its utensils, and all the work involved. Bamidbar 3:36


+ 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


+ 133 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


+ 108 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


+ 105 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


+ 91 Their tally, according to their families: two thousand, seven hundred and fifty. Bamidbar 4:36


+ 139 All the numbers whom by Moses, Aaron, and the chieftains of Israel counted the Levites according to their families and their fathers' houses, Bamidbar 4:46


+ 112 Tell the children of Israel: When a man or woman commits any of the sins against man to act treacherously against God, and that person is found guilty, Bamidbar 5:6


+ 81 The kohen shall bring her forth and present her before the Lord. Bamidbar 5:16


+ 96 The kohen shall scoop out from the meal offering its reminder and burn it upon the altar, and then he shall give the woman the water to drink. Bamidbar 5:26


+ 78 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 6:1


+ 104 Speak to the children of Israel, and you shall say to them: A man or woman who sets himself apart by making a nazirite vow to abstain for the sake of the Lord. Bamidbar 6:2


+ 103 He shall abstain from new wine and aged wine; he shall not drink even vinegar made from new wine or aged wine, nor shall he drink anything in which grapes have been steeped, and he shall eat neither fresh grapes nor dried ones. Bamidbar 6:3


+ 92 For the entire duration of his abstinence, he shall not eat any product of the grape vine, from seeds to skins. Bamidbar 6:4


+ 163 All the days of his vow of abstinence, no razor shall pass over his head; until the completion of the term that he abstains for the sake of the Lord, it shall be sacred, and he shall allow the growth of the hair of his head to grow wild. Bamidbar 6:5


+ 96 All the days that he abstains for The Lord, he shall not come into contact with the dead. Bamidbar 6:6


+ 96 To his father, to his mother, to his brother, or to his sister, he shall not defile himself if they die, for the crown of his God is upon his head. Bamidbar 6:7


+ 85 For the entire duration of his abstinence, he is holy to the Lord. Bamidbar 6:8


+ 119 If someone in his presence dies unexpectedly or suddenly, and causes the nazirite head to become defiled, he shall shave off the hair of his head on the day of his purification; on the seventh day, he shall shave it off. Bamidbar 6:9


+ 94 And on the eighth day, he shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons to the kohen, at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 6:10


+ 133 The kohen shall prepare one for a sin offering and one for a burnt offering and atone on his behalf for sinning by coming into contact with the dead, and he shall sanctify his head on that day. Bamidbar 6:11


+ 120 He shall consecrate to the Lord the period of his abstinence and bring a lamb in its first year as a guilt offering; the previous days shall be canceled because his naziriteship has been defiled. Bamidbar 6:12


+ 101 This is the law of the nazirite: On the day his period of naziriteship is completed, he shall present himself at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 6:13


+ 89 He shall bring his offering to the Lord: one unblemished lamb in its first year as a burnt offering, one unblemished ewe lamb in its first year as a sin offering, and one unblemished ram as a peace offering, Bamidbar 6:14


+ 112 And a basket of unleavened cakes; loaves of fine flour mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, with their meal offerings and their libations. Bamidbar 6:15


+ 85 The kohen shall present it before the Lord, and perform the service of his sin offering and his burnt offering. Bamidbar 6:16


+ 101 He shall make the ram as a peace offering to the Lord, along with the basket of unleavened cakes, and the kohen shall perform the service of its meal offering with its libation. Bamidbar 6:17


+ 104 The nazirite shall shave the head of his naziriteship at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, and he shall take the hair of the head of his naziriteship and place it upon the fire which is under the peace offering. Bamidbar 6:18


+ 125 The kohen shall then take the cooked foreleg of the ram, one unleavened loaf from the basket and one unleavened wafer, place them in the hands of the nazirite after he has shaven off his nazirite head. Bamidbar 6:19


+ 99 The kohen shall wave them as a waving before the Lord; it is consecrated to the kohen, along with the breast of the waving and the thigh of the uplifting. After this, the nazirite may drink wine. Bamidbar 6:20


+ 109 This is the law of a nazirite who makes a vow: his offering to the Lord for his naziriteship is in addition to what is within his means. According to the vow that he vows, so shall he do, in addition to the law of his naziriteship. Bamidbar 6:21


+ 103 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 6:22


+ 91 Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying: This is how you shall bless the children of Israel, saying to them: Bamidbar 6:23


+ 98 May the Lord bless you and watch over you. Bamidbar 6:24


+ 91 May the Lord cause His countenance to shine to you and favor you. Bamidbar 6:25


+ 79 May the Lord raise His countenance toward you and grant you peace. Bamidbar 6:26


+ 90 They shall bestow My Name upon the children of Israel, so that I will bless them. Bamidbar 6:27


+ 93 So Moses took the wagons and the cattle and gave them to the Levites. Bamidbar 7:6


+ 89 One young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 7:16


+ 93 One spoon weighing ten shekels of gold filled with incense. Bamidbar 7:26


+ 135 On the fifth day, the chieftain was of the sons of Simeon, Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. Bamidbar 7:36


+ 92 One young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 7:46


+ 93 One spoon weighing ten shekels of gold filled with incense. Bamidbar 7:56


+ 97 On the ninth day, the chieftain was of the sons of Benjamin, Abidan the son of Gideoni. Bamidbar 7:60


+ 126 His offering was one silver bowl weighing one hundred and thirty shekels, one silver sprinkling basin weighing seventy shekels according to the holy shekel, both filled with fine flour mixed with olive oil for a meal offering. Bamidbar 7:61


+ 102 One spoon weighing ten shekels of gold filled with incense. Bamidbar 7:62


+ 131 One young bull, one ram and one lamb in its first year for a burnt offering. Bamidbar 7:63


+ 159 One young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 7:64


+ 104 And for the peace offering: two oxen, five rams, five he goats, five lambs in their first year; this was the offering of Abidan the son of Gideoni. Bamidbar 7:65


+ 93 On the tenth day, the chieftain was of the sons of Dan, Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. Bamidbar 7:66


+ 117 His offering was one silver bowl weighing one hundred and thirty shekels, one silver sprinkling basin weighing seventy shekels according to the holy shekel, both filled with fine flour mixed with olive oil for a meal offering. Bamidbar 7:67


+ 96 One spoon weighing ten shekels of gold filled with incense. Bamidbar 7:68


+ 86 One young bull, one ram and one lamb in its first year for a burnt offering. Bamidbar 7:69


+ 89 One young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 7:76


+ 135 Twelve gold spoons filled with incense; each spoon weighing ten shekels according to the holy shekel; all the gold spoons totaled one hundred and twenty shekels. Bamidbar 7:86


+ 86 Take the Levites from among the children of Israel and cleanse them. Bamidbar 8:6


+ 131 For they are wholly given over to Me from among the children of Israel; instead of those that open the womb all the firstborn of Israel I have taken them for Myself. Bamidbar 8:16


+ 99 He shall minister with his brethren in the Tent of Meeting to keep the charge, but he shall not perform the service; thus shall you do for the Levites regarding their charge. Bamidbar 8:26


+ 120 There were men who were ritually unclean [because of contact with] a dead person, and therefore could not make the Passover sacrifice on that day. So they approached Moses and Aaron on that day. Bamidbar 9:6


+ 91 So it was always, the cloud covered it and there was an appearance of fire at night. Bamidbar 9:16


+ 101 When you blow a second teruah, the camps encamped to the south shall travel; they shall blow a teruah for traveling. Bamidbar 10:6


+ 88 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Zebulun was Eliab the son of Helon. Bamidbar 10:16


+ 98 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Asher was Pagiel the son of Ocran. Bamidbar 10:26


+ 86 And when it came to rest he would say, Repose O Lord, among the myriads of thousands of Israel. Bamidbar 10:36


+ 107 But now, our bodies are dried out, for there is nothing at all; we have nothing but manna to look at. Bamidbar 11:6


+ 116 Then the Lord said to Moses, Assemble for Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the people's elders and officers, and you shall take them to the Tent of Meeting, and they shall stand there with You. Bamidbar 11:16


+ 119 Now two men remained in the camp; the name of one was Eldad and the name of the second was Medad, and the spirit rested upon them. They were among those written, but they did not go out to the tent, but prophesied in the camp. Bamidbar 11:26


+ 103 He said, "Please listen to My words. If there be prophets among you, I the Lord will make Myself known to him in a vision; I will speak to him in a dream. Bamidbar 12:6


+ 88 Then the people departed from Hazeroth, and they camped in the desert of Paran. Bamidbar 12:16


+ 80 For the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jepphunneh. Bamidbar 13:6


+ 104 These are the names of the men Moses sent to scout the Land, and Moses called Hoshea the son of Nun, Joshua. Bamidbar 13:16


+ 120 They went, and they came to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the desert of Paran, to Kadesh. They brought them back a report, as well as to the entire congregation, and they showed them the fruit of the land. Bamidbar 13:26


+ 92 Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had scouted the land, tore their clothes. Bamidbar 14:6


+ 70 Since the Lord lacked the ability to bring this nation to the Land which He swore to them, He slaughtered them in the desert. Bamibdar 14:16


+ 89 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, Bamidbar 13:26


+ 119 As for the men whom Moses had sent to scout the Land, who returned and caused the entire congregation to complain against him by spreading report about the Land. Bamidbar 14:36


+ 91 Or for a ram, you shall present a meal offering containing two tenths fine flour mixed with a third of a hin of oil. Bamidbar 15:6


+ 87 One rule applies to the assembly, for yourselves and for the proselyte who resides with you; one rule applies throughout your generations just as it is for you, so it is for the proselyte, before the Lord. Bamidbar 15:16


+ 84 There shall be one law and one ordinance for you and the proselyte who resides with you. Bamidbar 15:16


+ 99 The entire congregation of the children of Israel and the proselyte who resides with them shall be forgiven, for all the people were in error. Bamidbar 15:26


+ 111 So the entire congregation took him outside the camp, and they pelted him to death with stones, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 15:36


+ 88 Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi took himself to one side along with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, descendants of Reuben. Bamidbar 16:1


+ 108 They confronted Moses together with two hundred and fifty men from the children of Israel, chieftains of the congregation, representatives of the assembly, men of repute. Bamidbar 16:2


+ 92 They assembled against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, "You take too much upon yourselves, for the entire congregation are all holy, and the Lord is in their midst. So why do you raise yourselves above the Lord's assembly?" Bamidbar 16:3


+ 82 Moses heard and fell on his face. Bamidbar 16:4


+ 80 He spoke to Korah and to all his company, saying, "In the morning, the Lord will make known who is His, and who is holy, and He will draw them near to Him, and the one He chooses, He will draw near to Him. Bamidbar 16:5


+ 75 Do this, Korah and his company: Take for yourselves censers. Bamidbar 16:6


+ 94 Place fire into them and put incense upon them before the Lord tomorrow, and the man whom the Lord chooses he is the holy one; you have taken too much upon yourselves, sons of Levi." Bamidbar 16:7


+ 77 Moses said to Korah, "Please listen, sons of Levi. Bamidbar 16:8


+ 88 Is it not enough that the God of Israel has distinguished you from the congregation of Israel to draw you near to Him, to perform the service in the Mishkan of the Lord and to stand before the congregation to minister to them? Bamidbar 16:9


+ 89 He drew you near, and all your brothers, the sons of Levi with you, and now you seek the kehunah as well? Bamidbar 16:10


+ 102 Therefore, you and your entire company who are assembled are against the Lord, for what is Aaron that you should complain against him?" Bamidbar 16:11


+ 95 Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, but they said, "We will not go up. Bamidbar 16:12


+ 93 Is it not enough that you have brought us out of a land flowing with milk and honey to kill us in the desert, that you should also exercise authority over us? Bamidbar 16:13


+ 93 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


+ 101 Moses was exceedingly distressed, and he said to the Lord, "Do not accept their offering. I have not taken a donkey from a single one of them, and I have not harmed a single one of them." Bamidbar 16:15


+ 73 Moses said to Korah, You and your entire congregation should be before the Lord you, they, and Aaron tomorrow. Bamidbar 16:16


+ 75 Let each man take his censer and place incense upon it, and let each man present his censer before the Lord; there will thus be two hundred and fifty censers, and let you and Aaron each take his censer. Bamidbar 16:17


+ 90 So each man took his censer, and they put fire upon it and placed incense upon it, and they stood at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting with Moses and Aaron. Bamidbar 16:18


+ 75 Korah assembled all the congregation against them at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord appeared before the entire congregation. Bamidbar 16:19


+ 77 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron saying, Bamidbar 16:21


+ 85 Dissociate yourselves from this congregation, and I will consume them in an instant. Bamidbar 16:22


+ 97 They fell on their faces and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, if one man sins, shall You be angry with the whole congregation? Bamidbar 16:22


+ 89 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 16:23


+ 92 Speak to the congregation saying, Withdraw from the dwelling of Korah, Dathan and Abiram. Bamidbar 16:24


+ 88 Moses arose and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel followed him. Bamidbar 16:25


+ 92 He spoke to the congregation saying, Please get away from the tents of these wicked men, and do not touch anything of theirs, lest you perish because of all their sins. Bamidbar 16:26


+ 97 So they withdrew from around the dwelling of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, and Dathan and Abiram went out standing upright at the entrance of their tents together with their wives, their children, and their infants. Bamidbar 16:27


+ 86 Moses said, With this you shall know that the Lord sent me to do all these deeds, for I did not devise them myself. Bamidbar 16:28


+ 77 If these men die as all men die and the fate of all men will be visited upon them, then the Lord has not sent me. Bamidbar 16:29


+ 102 But if the Lord creates a creation, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them and all that is theirs, and they descend alive into the grave, you will know that these men have provoked the Lord. Bamidbar 16:30


+ 78 As soon as he finished speaking all these words, the earth beneath them split open. Bamidbar 16:31


+ 93 The earth beneath them opened its mouth and swallowed them and their houses, and all the men who were with Korah and all the property. Bamidbar 16:32


+ 77 They, and all they possessed, descended alive into the grave; the earth covered them up, and they were lost to the assembly. Bamidbar 16:33


+ 77 All Israel who were around them fled from their cries, for they said, "Lest the earth swallow us up too!" Bamidbar 16:34


+ 73 A fire came forth from the Lord and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who had offered up the incense. Bamidbar 16:35


+ 91 The following day, the entire congregation of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron saying, "You have killed the people of the Lord." Bamidbar 17:6


+ 75 The Lord said to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:16


+ 72 Moses did so. He did just as the Lord had commanded him. Bamidbar 17:26


+ 106 I have therefore taken your brethren, the Levites, from among the children of Israel; they are given to you as a gift, and given over to the Lord to perform the service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:6


+ 93 Its redemption shall be performed from the age of a month, according to the valuation, five shekels of silver, according to the holy shekel, which is twenty gerahs. Bamidbar 18:16


+ 110 Speak to the Levites and tell them, "When you take the tithe from the children of Israel which I have given you from them as your inheritance, you shall set aside from it a gift for the Lord, a tithe of the tithe. Bamidbar 18:26


+ 94 The kohen shall take a piece of cedar wood, hyssop, and crimson wool, and cast them into the burning of the cow. Bamidbar 19:6


+ 99 Anyone who touches one slain by the sword, or a corpse, or a human bone or a grave, in an open field, he shall be unclean for seven days. Bamidbar 19:16


+ 100 Moses and Aaron moved away from the assembly to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and they fell on their faces. Then the glory of the Lord appeared to them. Bamidbar 20:6


+ 72 We cried out to the Lord and He heard our voice. He sent an angel, and he took us out of Egypt, and now we are in Kadesh, a city on the edge of your border. Bamidbar 20:16

+ 97 From Aroer which is on the edge of the valley of Arnon, and from the city that is in the valley,even unto Gilead, there was not a city too high for us: the Lord our God delivered up all before us. Devarim 2:36


+ 95 And we utterly destroyed them as we did to Sihon, king of Heshbon, utterly destroying every city, the men, the women, and the young children. Devarim 3:6


+ 103 And to the Reubenites and to the Gadites I gave from Gilead to the brook of Arnon, the midst of the brook and the border, until the brook of Jabbok, which is the boundary of the children of Ammon, Devarim 3:16

+ 105 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


+ 105 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 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


+ 107 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

+ 337 Just for fun I recently asked Erin, “Now that the kids are in summer school, don’t you think it’s about time you went out and got yourself a job?  I hate seeing you wallow in unemployment for so long.” She smiled and said, “Wow.  I have been unemployed a really long time.  That’s weird…  I like it!”

Neither of us have had jobs since the ’90s (my only job was in 1992), so we’ve been self-employed for quite a while.  In our household it’s a running joke for one of us to say to the other, “Maybe you should get a job, derelict!” It’s like the scene in The Three Stooges where Moe tells Curly to get a job, and Curly backs away, saying, “No, please… not that!  Anything but that!” It’s funny that when people reach a certain age, such as after graduating college, they assume it’s time to go out and get a job.  But like many things the masses do, just because everyone does it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea.  In fact, if you’re reasonably intelligent, getting a job is one of the worst things you can do to support yourself.  There are far better ways to make a living than selling yourself into indentured servitude.

Here are some reasons you should do everything in your power to avoid getting a job:

1. Income for dummies.

Getting a job and trading your time for money may seem like a good idea.  There’s only one problem with it.  It’s stupid!  It’s the stupidest way you can possibly generate income!  This is truly income for dummies.

Why is getting a job so dumb?  Because you only get paid when you’re working.  Don’t you see a problem with that, or have you been so thoroughly brainwashed into thinking it’s reasonable and intelligent to only earn income when you’re working?  Have you never considered that it might be better to be paid even when you’re not working?  Who taught you that you could only earn income while working?  Some other brainwashed employee perhaps?

Don’t you think your life would be much easier if you got paid while you were eating, sleeping, and playing with the kids too?  Why not get paid 24/7?  Get paid whether you work or not.  Don’t your plants grow even when you aren’t tending to them?  Why not your bank account? Who cares how many hours you work?  Only a handful of people on this entire planet care how much time you spend at the office.  Most of us won’t even notice whether you work 6 hours a week or 60.  But if you have something of value to provide that matters to us, a number of us will be happy to pull out our wallets and pay you for it.  We don’t care about your time — we only care enough to pay for the value we receive.  Do you really care how long it took me to write this article?  Would you pay me twice as much if it took me 6 hours vs. only 3?

Non-dummies often start out on the traditional income for dummies path.  So don’t feel bad if you’re just now realizing you’ve been suckered.  Non-dummies eventually realize that trading time for money is indeed extremely dumb and that there must be a better way.  And of course there is a better way.  The key is to de-couple your value from your time. Smart people build systems that generate income 24/7, especially passive income.  This can include starting a business, building a web site, becoming an investor, or generating royalty income from creative work.  The system delivers the ongoing value to people and generates income from it, and once it’s in motion, it runs continuously whether you tend to it or not.  From that moment on, the bulk of your time can be invested in increasing your income (by refining your system or spawning new ones) instead of merely maintaining your income.

This web site is an example of such a system.  At the time of this writing, it generates about $9000 a month in income for me (update: $40,000 a month as of 10/31/06), and it isn’t my only income stream either.  I write each article just once (fixed time investment), and people can extract value from them year after year.  The web server delivers the value, and other systems (most of which I didn’t even build and don’t even understand) collect income and deposit it automatically into my bank account.  It’s not perfectly passive, but I love writing and would do it for free anyway.  But of course it cost me a lot of money to launch this business, right?  Um, yeah, $9 is an awful lot these days (to register the domain name).  Everything after that was profit. Sure it takes some upfront time and effort to design and implement your own income-generating systems.  But you don’t have to reinvent the wheel — feel free to use existing systems like ad networks and affiliate programs.  Once you get going, you won’t have to work so many hours to support yourself.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be out having dinner with your spouse, knowing that while you’re eating, you’re earning money?  If you want to keep working long hours because you enjoy it, go right ahead.  If you want to sit around doing nothing, feel free.  As long as your system continues delivering value to others, you’ll keep getting paid whether you’re working or not.

Your local bookstore is filled with books containing workable systems others have already designed, tested, and debugged.  Nobody is born knowing how to start a business or generate investment income, but you can easily learn it.  How long it takes you to figure it out is irrelevant because the time is going to pass anyway.  You might as well emerge at some future point as the owner of income-generating systems as opposed to a lifelong wage slave.  This isn’t all or nothing.  If your system only generates a few hundred dollars a month, that’s a significant step in the right direction.

2. Limited experience.

You might think it’s important to get a job to gain experience.  But that’s like saying you should play golf to get experience playing golf.  You gain experience from living, regardless of whether you have a job or not.  A job only gives you experience at that job, but you gain “experience” doing just about anything, so that’s no real benefit at all.  Sit around doing nothing for a couple years, and you can call yourself an experienced meditator, philosopher, or politician.

The problem with getting experience from a job is that you usually just repeat the same limited experience over and over.  You learn a lot in the beginning and then stagnate.  This forces you to miss other experiences that would be much more valuable.  And if your limited skill set ever becomes obsolete, then your experience won’t be worth squat.  In fact, ask yourself what the experience you’re gaining right now will be worth in 20-30 years.  Will your job even exist then?

Consider this.  Which experience would you rather gain?  The knowledge of how to do a specific job really well — one that you can only monetize by trading your time for money — or the knowledge of how to enjoy financial abundance for the rest of your life without ever needing a job again?  Now I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have the latter experience.  That seems a lot more useful in the real world, wouldn’t you say?

3. Lifelong domestication.

Getting a job is like enrolling in a human domestication program.  You learn how to be a good pet.

Look around you.  Really look.  What do you see?  Are these the surroundings of a free human being?  Or are you living in a cage for unconscious animals?  Have you fallen in love with the color beige? How’s your obedience training coming along?  Does your master reward your good behavior?  Do you get disciplined if you fail to obey your master’s commands?

Is there any spark of free will left inside you?  Or has your conditioning made you a pet for life? Humans are not meant to be raised in cages.  You poor thing…

4. Too many mouths to feed.

Employee income is the most heavily taxed there is.  In the USA you can expect that about half your salary will go to taxes.  The tax system is designed to disguise how much you’re really giving up because some of those taxes are paid by your employer, and some are deducted from your paycheck.  But you can bet that from your employer’s perspective, all of those taxes are considered part of your pay, as well as any other compensation you receive such as benefits.  Even the rent for the office space you consume is considered, so you must generate that much more value to cover it.  You might feel supported by your corporate environment, but keep in mind that you’re the one paying for it. Another chunk of your income goes to owners and investors.  That’s a lot of mouths to feed. It isn’t hard to understand why employees pay the most in taxes relative to their income.  After all, who has more control over the tax system?  Business owners and investors or employees? You only get paid a fraction of the real value you generate.  Your real salary may be more than triple what you’re paid, but most of that money you’ll never see.  It goes straight into other people’s pockets. What a generous person you are!

5. Way too risky.

Many employees believe getting a job is the safest and most secure way to support themselves. Morons.

Social conditioning is amazing.  It’s so good it can even make people believe the exact opposite of the truth. Does putting yourself in a position where someone else can turn off all your income just by saying two words (“You’re fired”) sound like a safe and secure situation to you?  Does having only one income stream honestly sound more secure than having 10?

The idea that a job is the most secure way to generate income is just silly.  You can’t have security if you don’t have control, and employees have the least control of anyone.  If you’re an employee, then your real job title should be professional gambler.

6. Having an evil bovine master.

When you run into an idiot in the entrepreneurial world, you can turn around and head the other way.  When you run into an idiot in the corporate world, you have to turn around and say, “Sorry, boss.”

Did you know that the word boss comes from the Dutch word baas, which historically means master?  Another meaning of the word boss is “a cow or bovine.”  And in many video games, the boss is the evil dude that you have to kill at the end of a level.

So if your boss is really your evil bovine master, then what does that make you?  Nothing but a turd in the herd. Who’s your daddy?

7. Begging for money.

When you want to increase your income, do you have to sit up and beg your master for more money?  Does it feel good to be thrown some extra Scooby Snacks now and then?

Or are you free to decide how much you get paid without needing anyone’s permission but your own?

If you have a business and one customer says “no” to you, you simply say “next.”

8. An inbred social life.

Many people treat their jobs as their primary social outlet.  They hang out with the same people working in the same field.  Such incestuous relations are social dead ends.  An exciting day includes deep conversations about the company’s switch from Sparkletts to Arrowhead, the delay of Microsoft’s latest operating system, and the unexpected delivery of more Bic pens.  Consider what it would be like to go outside and talk to strangers.  Ooooh… scary!  Better stay inside where it’s safe.

If one of your co-slaves gets sold to another master, do you lose a friend?  If you work in a male-dominated field, does that mean you never get to talk to women above the rank of receptionist?  Why not decide for yourself whom to socialize with instead of letting your master decide for you?  Believe it or not, there are locations on this planet where free people congregate.  Just be wary of those jobless folk — they’re a crazy bunch!

9. Loss of freedom.

It takes a lot of effort to tame a human being into an employee.  The first thing you have to do is break the human’s independent will.  A good way to do this is to give them a weighty policy manual filled with nonsensical rules and regulations.  This leads the new employee to become more obedient, fearing that s/he could be disciplined at any minute for something incomprehensible.  Thus, the employee will likely conclude it’s safest to simply obey the master’s commands without question.  Stir in some office politics for good measure, and we’ve got a freshly minted mind slave. As part of their obedience training, employees must be taught how to dress, talk, move, and so on.  We can’t very well have employees thinking for themselves, now can we?  That would ruin everything. God forbid you should put a plant on your desk when it’s against the company policy.  Oh no, it’s the end of the world!  Cindy has a plant on her desk!  Summon the enforcers!  Send Cindy back for another round of sterility training!

Free human beings think such rules and regulations are silly of course.  The only policy they need is:  “Be smart.  Be nice.  Do what you love.  Have fun.”

10. Becoming a coward.

Have you noticed that employed people have an almost endless capacity to whine about problems at their companies?  But they don’t really want solutions — they just want to vent and make excuses why it’s all someone else’s fault.  It’s as if getting a job somehow drains all the free will out of people and turns them into spineless cowards.  If you can’t call your boss a jerk now and then without fear of getting fired, you’re no longer free.  You’ve become your master’s property.

When you work around cowards all day long, don’t you think it’s going to rub off on you?  Of course it will.  It’s only a matter of time before you sacrifice the noblest parts of your humanity on the altar of fear:  first courage… then honesty… then honor and integrity… and finally your independent will.  You sold your humanity for nothing but an illusion.  And now your greatest fear is discovering the truth of what you’ve become.

I don’t care how badly you’ve been beaten down.  It is never too late to regain your courage.  Never!

Still want a job?

If you’re currently a well-conditioned, well-behaved employee, your most likely reaction to the above will be defensiveness.  It’s all part of the conditioning.  But consider that if the above didn’t have a grain of truth to it, you wouldn’t have an emotional reaction at all.  This is only a reminder of what you already know.  You can deny your cage all you want, but the cage is still there.  Perhaps this all happened so gradually that you never noticed it until now… like a lobster enjoying a nice warm bath. If any of this makes you mad, that’s a step in the right direction.  Anger is a higher level of consciousness than apathy, so it’s a lot better than being numb all the time.  Any emotion — even confusion — is better than apathy.  If you work through your feelings instead of repressing them, you’ll soon emerge on the doorstep of courage.  And when that happens, you’ll have the will to actually do something about your situation and start living like the powerful human being you were meant to be instead of the domesticated pet you’ve been trained to be.

Happily jobless

What’s the alternative to getting a job?  The alternative is to remain happily jobless for life and to generate income through other means.  Realize that you earn income by providing value — not time — so find a way to provide your best value to others, and charge a fair price for it.  One of the simplest and most accessible ways is to start your own business.  Whatever work you’d otherwise do via employment, find a way to provide that same value directly to those who will benefit most from it.  It takes a bit more time to get going, but your freedom is easily worth the initial investment of time and energy.  Then you can buy your own Scooby Snacks for a change. And of course everything you learn along the way, you can share with others to generate even more value.  So even your mistakes can be monetized.

One of the greatest fears you’ll confront is that you may not have any real value to offer others.  Maybe being an employee and getting paid by the hour is the best you can do.  Maybe you just aren’t worth that much.  That line of thinking is all just part of your conditioning.  It’s absolute nonsense.  As you begin to dump such brainwashing, you’ll soon recognize that you have the ability to provide enormous value to others and that people will gladly pay you for it.  There’s only one thing that prevents you from seeing this truth — fear.

All you really need is the courage to be yourself.  Your real value is rooted in who you are, not what you do.  The only thing you need actually do is express your real self to the world.  You’ve been told all sort of lies as to why you can’t do that.  But you’ll never know true happiness and fulfillment until you summon the courage to do it anyway.

The next time someone says to you, “Get a job,” I suggest you reply as Curly did:  “No, please… not that!  Anything but that!”  Then poke him right in the eyes.

You already know deep down that getting a job isn’t what you want.  So don’t let anyone try to tell you otherwise.  Learn to trust your inner wisdom, even if the whole world says you’re wrong and foolish for doing so.  Years from now you’ll look back and realize it was one of the best decisions you ever made.

Final thoughts

While I wouldn’t recommend starting an online business for everyone, for many people it’s one of the best ways to generate income without a job. It has certainly worked disgustingly well for me.

+ 196 10 Tips - High Vibrations

All your thoughts and feelings are energy, and energy is vibration. Learn to Raise those Vibrations and watch your life change dramatically.

1. Find something beautiful and appreciate it. Beauty is all around us, from the morning dew to the evening stars and everything in between. Most go through life not noticing all the beautiful things that are around them, and yes it's every where, so take the time to notice them, and appreciate them when you see it. Whether it's the scent of a flower or the way rain ripples in puddles of water, appreciate the beauty life has to offer.

2. Make a list of all that you are grateful for. Making a gratitude list shifts your vibrations from focusing on what you do not have to what is already abundant in your life. There is more to be grateful for than you could possibly imagine. You can start with “I'm Alive!” and expand from there. Gratitude is the Attitude.

3. Meditate. Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes and breath in and out. Too often we rush through our days with a scattered brain leaving us in a state of anxiety and stress, Meditation helps to calm your spirit down and put you in a peaceful state of mind. 10 Minuets of meditation a day can change your life forever.

4. Do something for someone else. Giving to someone else shifts your thinking from “I don't have enough, to I have more than enough to give to others.” Abundance is a high vibration.

5. Stop complaining and gossiping. Complaining and Gossip puts you in a very low vibration. Ask yourself “Are the things you are talking about bringing you more of what you want?” if not then, Stop complaining, and start finding ways to rejoice.

6. Move. Exercise. Get active. Vibration requires movement, the more you move the better your vibrations move. So Get Active! Dance! The happier you feel, the more you will draw happy experiences to yourself because you are operating at a different frequency.

7. Realize that you have more control over your life than you thought. You are not a victim to circumstance, past, family upbringing, trauma, or anything else. You can change your life in an instant. Just realize this. In many wisdom traditions this is called “total responsibility.” No one is responsible for how you feel right now but you. It isn't a curse. It's a blessing because it gives you your power back.

8. Breathe. Just sit and try to make your breath longer, fuller, and more relaxed. It has a direct affect on your nervous system and helps to calm you down. A calm vibration is a high vibration.

9. Do Something You're Afraid Of Fear holds us back from being in a state of love and happiness, and facing those fears opens you up to a greater world of possibilities. Fear of Heights? Go skydiving. Scared of public speaking, say a poem at an open mic. You'll begin to realize your fear was worse then the actual problem, and a sense of relief will wash over you.

10. Have a Meaningful Conversation with a Friend Rather than gossip or complaining, talk about you ideas. What do you have planned for yourself? what do you think is the nature of reality? Are we spiritual beings having a human experience? Talking about these things with someone helps to raise both your vibrations by thinking big. If you don't have someone to talk to about these kinds of things with, there's a community of higher minded individuals right here. Leave a comment down below and let's chat!

+ 164 The Science of The Heart: Our Hearts Actually Have It’s Own Intelligence

We all know the difference between good vibes and bad vibes, but what is really happening at a scientific level when we talk about “vibes”? Or what about when we know someone is a bad person and can feel it in our gut, only to later find out that they are abusive and manipulative?

While there is an energetic and spiritual side to this question, there is also a hard scientific explanation of what is occurring when we tap into the vibes of other people. With the development of new scientific instruments, intuition is now something being studied using the scientific method.

The electromagnetic field of the heart

The heart generates a powerful and measurable electromagnetic field. Magnetocardiography is the science of measure the field that is produced by the electrical activity within the heart.

It’s mainstream scientific knowledge that the resonant frequencies of the field of your heart interacts with the fields of others around you. This effect is super strong within the first several feet in particular, but has been reported to be measured even at a distance of hundreds of meters.

Most of us know that the heart holds an energy system of its own and is one of the 7 main chakras within our energy field, and that our heart centers can interact with the heart centers of others. But it turns that it’s more than just an energy center for emotions, spiritual health, or even nervous system activity. The heart almost acts as a second mind with its own sense of awareness.

The Institute of Heartmath is an organization that focuses on the science of the heart and its relationship to the brain, nervous system, and the energy of the planet. Their studies have shown time and time again that the heart is a “little brain” and has an intuitive intelligence of it’s own independent of the mind.

“We observed that the heart was acting as though it had a mind of its own and was profoundly influencing the way we perceive and respond to the world. In essence, it appeared that the heart was affecting intelligence and awareness.”

The studies proving the heart’s intuitive intelligence

In this study, 26 participants were shown a series of 45 pictures. 30 of the pictures were neutral, and 15 of them were emotionally arousing. The participants were hooked up to an electrocardiogram to measure cardiac accelerations and decelerations, and an electroencephalogram to measure heart-beat evoked “potentials” on the surface on the skin. What the found was incredible.

A significantly greater heart rate deceleration occurred prior to future emotional stimuli compared to calm stimuli, and there was a significant difference in the refraction period within cardiac cycles for the emotional versus the calm. Both the heart and the brain were responding to the emotionally arousing photos prior to them even being seen by the person in linear time, but the heart was receiving the intuitive information prior to the brain.

The also found that there was a large difference in intuitive intelligence between males and females, and the females pick up on intuitive information more often and at a quicker rate than men did. So the spiritual concept of females being more in touch with their intuitive and emotions is not just New Age philosophy. It’s now scientifically proven that intuition is real, the heart plays a more important role in intuitive information than the brain, and that females are more heart-centered.

As they concluded in the original study found here:

Once the prestimulus information is received in the psychophysiologic systems, it appears to be processed in the same way as conventional sensory input. This study presents compelling evidence that the body’s perceptual apparatus is continuously scanning the future.

Why this is so amazing

When you are in a room with someone and are picking up on their “vibes”, the electromagnetic field of your heart is resonating with theirs. Physiologically, you are literally interacting with the energy field of that person in a way that is scientifically measurable using a superconducting quantum interference device. At the same time, your heart is also picking up on things intuitively before stimulus has even presented itself as an event in space-time.

You can feel even more confident in trusting your intuition knowing that it’s literally the intelligence of your heart continuously scanning the future for you. When you feel something wrong inside your heart center or when you get a bad feeling about someone around you, it’s not just a feeling. It’s your heart’s intelligence trying to protect you and warn you of potential threats and dangers around you.

Trust the feelings and experiences you have inside your heart center, and allow yourself to fully feel and connect with whatever it is that arises within it. Just like you listen to the thoughts that arise with in the mind in your heart, it’s as equally important to listen to the intuitive feelings that arise within the mind of the heart.

+ 89 256 Year Old Man Reveals The Secrets To His Longevity!


+ 97 The Luminosity of Repentance

Corresponding to the luminosity of our repentance before learning Torah is the luminosity of our understanding.

To the extent that our will rises, so does our mind rise. To the extent that our will is luminous, so is our mind luminous.

Orot Hatorah 6:2


+ 111 The Essential Core

When we learn in holiness, our will and mind grow refined. The divine illumination comes from the essential core of our soul and fills its being entirely. Then spiritual life spreads out to the ends of its being, just as blood courses to all parts of the body.

But secular learning, of whatever discipline, only enlivens the particular topic with which it deals.

This is the basic difference between the holy and secular in regard to quantitative worth. But from the aspect of qualitative worth, the difference is infinitely more exalted.

Orot Hatorah 6:1


+ 137 The Plain of Halachah and Aggadah

When we begin to take steps upon the plain of halachah and aggadah, a multitude beyond number of unions and harmonies beyond number is drawn out. The universes of heaven and earth, humanity of the flesh and humanity of ideas, with all the wealth hidden in each of them, are then unified. They bring each other to the wished?for action that leads toward complete growth and perfection.

This connection is nothing less than the revelation of the unity that had been hidden within them from the very beginning.

Whoever has not tasted the flavor of halachah has not tasted the flavor of Torah. And whoever has not tasted the flavor of aggadah has not tasted the flavor of­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ fear of sin.

Torah and fear of sin must always accompany one another. The service of Torah learning must be methodically revealed, in an active form, upon this unifying basis—one whose results are very great.

In truth, aggadah always contains a halachic essence. Similarly, halachah contains an inner agaddic content. In the main, the content of aggadah is found in the qualitative form of halachah. And the content of halachah is found in the quantitative form of aggadah. Even without any particular search or awareness, when we learn halachah, we are touched by its hidden content of aggadah; and, when we learn aggadah, we are touched by the pulse of halachah that is folded into the content of the aggadah.

However, not everyone has a properly keen awareness of these two streams—each of which is constantly filled with the content of the other. An alienation between these worlds, which are in essence so joined and twinned together, leads to an unhealthy separation in the nature of deep study and its broadening. It constricts these two areas—halachic and the aggadic—to a narrow arena.

We must clearly bring forth the meeting of these two forces in a rectified form, when each will make the other_s content exceedingly fragrant. Each will profoundly aid the other to bring forth its details and to shine a more brilliant light upon its own general appearance and upon the depth of its own internal logic and what that embraces. The scent of aggadah must make halachah fragrant, in a measure that is well?reasoned and fitting. And aggadah must be given its worth within a framework, with set laws and a clear, defined logic—like the form of a strengthened halachah. With this, the power and freshness of both will be multiplied.

The need that brought the masters of pilpul in previous generations to at times attempt to integrate aggadah and halachah welled forth from this demand for a unification of these forces, which so much act in unison.

We are already called upon to gather together talents and knowledge in order to clarify our learning and all the paths of our lives. In particular, the essence of halachic learning must be broad, composed of the various approaches of the early and later authorities who have grown to be so many over the generations—we very much need that depth and breadth. And we must approach with complete breadth the unity of the contents of halachah and aggadah—which includes the categories of logic and history, ethics and faith, feeling and civility.

And resting upon all of them is a pure phenomenon, one soaked with the dew of the life of the totality of the light of Torah, ready to rest like a beautiful ornament upon all those who learn Torah for its own sake, giving them a special sensitivity and satisfaction of the heart?inspiring joy of Torah.

Orot Hakodesh I, pp. 26?27


+ 112 You Are Capable of Perception

It may be that you cannot visualize the subtle aspect of those exalted topics dealt with in the secrets of Torah and in all mystical concepts. Still, your general feeling and spiritual refinement are capable of perception. This comes as a result of your wisdom-giving soul’s essential recognition and the sense of faith rooted within your spirit.

You may only need to use your intellect to purify concepts, so that they will not mislead you, contradicting clear awareness and the pure recognitions of refined faith.

Then spiritual impressions will remain with you as thoughts that uplift your spirit and raise it to a supernal divine sphere, a sphere that is the source of soulful happiness and brightness for both the individual and the community.

Orot Hatorah 10:6


+ 166 Dark Alleys Shine

Once we learn much hidden Torah, whatever we understand and learn from the revealed Torah shines with a precious light.

Then the hidden Torah, with its special quality, appears in all those topics that the revealed Torah discusses.

This is found in the Jerusalem Talmud: since its authors were pious, their Torah was “blessed.” In contrast, the words of the Babylonian Talmud are merely “kept.” It seems that the Jerusalem Talmud deals with more elevated, pious people. Because of them, the Torah grows and becomes glorious. This is due to the appearance of attainments of holiness, starting from a small beginning and developing into great and powerful rivers. These people attain the light of Torah by prayer and deep study, as well as before and after learning. Such people constitute the body of Torah and the soul of Torah.

In this regard, there is a difference between the air of the land of Israel (where the holy spirit can flow upon the content of Jewish law) and elsewhere (where the holy spirit can spread openly only in aggadah, whereas Jewish law is judged by human intellect).

“‘In the dark places, You have placed me’ (Eichah 3:6)—this is the Babylonian Talmud” (Sanhedrin 24a). But from the midst of darkness, great light will sprout: “The nation that walks in darkness has seen a great light, those who dwell in a land of the shadow of death—light has shone upon them” (Is. 9:1). [“These are masters of the Talmud, who have seen great light, for the Holy One, blessed be He, illumines their eyes with what is forbidden and allowed, what is ritually unclean and clean” (Midrash Tanchuma Noach).]

In this way, these people bring down to the lowly avenues of life the illumination of God’s supernal Presence. In this way, they cause multitudinous dark alleys to shine. This aids numbers of those who are distant come, approach and connect to the supernal light of the glow of Torah in its might, the Torah of the land of Israel: “‘The gold of that land is good’ (Bereishis 2:12)—there is no Torah like the Torah of the land of Israel, and no wisdom like the wisdom of the land of Israel” (Bereishis Rabbah 16).

Orot Hatorah 13:1


+ 138 The Prayerbook and the Villager

by Shai Agnon

Shai Agnon (winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature) told:

One time, a number of us—myself, Chaim Nachman Bialik, Eliezer Meir Lifshitz, Rabbi Simchah Asaf, Binyamin and others—entered the presence of the great Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Hacohen Kook and discussed the problems of the generation and how to rectify it.

One of the group made a speech in praise of the Torah, which ended by criticizing the many additional laws enacted by the rabbis in every generation. Rabbi Nachman rose in pain, and appeared angry. But he immediately overcame his anger, as was his holy way, and answered quietly: Hearing this has brought to mind a story.

There was once a great rabbi who happened to pass through a village. Night fell, and he had to stay there overnight. He asked the villager at whose house he was staying for a volume of the Talmud, but the villager didn’t have one. He asked for a mishnah—the villager didn’t have. He asked for an Ein Yaakov—the villager didn’t have that either.

Finally, he asked the villager, “Do you have a prayerbook?” The villager brought him an old prayerbook, which contained a commentary that the rabbi read the entire night, and which he enjoyed greatly.

The next day, the rabbi offered to pay a good price for the prayerbook, but the villager refused. The rabbi persisted: “I’ll trade it for a new prayerbook with a fine binding.” But the villager still refused.

“Why?” asked the rabbi.

The villager replied, “Rabbi, every morning when I get up I like to drink something hot, and I warm up the kettle. To make the fire catch quickly, I light a piece of paper and put it under the tinder. Since I don’t have much paper in the house, I rip a page out of the prayerbook and light that. And also, every time I want to smoke my pipe, I rip a page out of the prayerbook to light it.

“I am already an old man, but because there is so much commentary, I still haven’t come to the prayers. All the pages I’ve ripped out really aren’t the prayerbook.”

Malachim Kivnei Adam, pp. 363-65


+ 107 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.”
