+ 383 It gave me a lot of pleasure and pride that 90 percent of the crew for 'Monsoon Wedding,' and most of my film, are women. We get the work done, you know, much lesser play of ego... And I really believe in harmony, I believe in working in a spirit of egolessness and that the film is bigger than all of us. Mira Nair


+ 387 Before Barack Obama took office, it looked like that pride could have vanished forever, but today, from the staggering depths of the Great Recession, the nation has had 29 straight months of job growth. Workers across my state and across the country are getting back the dignity of a good job and a good salary. Ted Strickland


+ 405 Gay life in 1970 was very bleak, compartmentalized. You didn't take it to work. You had to really lead a double life. There were bars, but you sort of snuck in and snuck out. Activism and gay pride simply didn't exist. I don't even think the word 'gay' was in existence. Larry Kramer

+ 346 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


+ 276 Don't forget what I discovered that over ninety percent of all national deficits from 1921 to 1939 were caused by payments for past, present, and future wars. Franklin D. Roosevelt

+ 437 One can ask two different kinds of questions with regard to the topics of study in psychology as well as in other sciences. One can ask for the phenomenal characteristics of psychological units or events, for example, how many kinds of feelings can be qualitatively differentiated from one another or which characteristics describe an experience of a voluntary act. Aside from this are the questions asking for the why, for the cause and the effect, for the conditional-genetic interrelations. For example, one can ask: Under which conditions has been a decision made and which are the specific psychological effects which follow this decision? The depiction of phenomenal characteristics is usually characterized as “description”, the depiction of causal relationships as “explanation.” Kurt Lewin 1927

+ 372 I believe in intuition and inspiration. … At times I feel certain I am right while not knowing the reason. When the eclipse of 1919 confirmed my intuition, I was not in the least surprised. In fact I would have been astonished had it turned out otherwise. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research. Albert Einstein


+ 343 In the judgment of the most competent living mathematicians, Fraulein Noether was the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced since the higher education of women began. In the realm of algebra, in which the most gifted mathematicians have been busy for centuries, she discovered methods which have proved of enormous importance in the development of the present-day younger generation of mathematicians. Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas. Albert Einstein, New York Times, May 1, 1935

+ 291 A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual. (R.C. Henry, “The Mental Universe” ; Nature 436:29,2005)

+ 430 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."


+ 387 In the book "The Book Which Tells the Truth", Vorilhon stated that he had an alien visitation on 13 December 1973. According to Rael, in a secluded area within a French volcanic crater, an extraterrestrial being came out of a craft that had descended gently from the sky, and told him, in French, that he had come for the sole purpose of meeting with him. Rael said that he was given a message by this alien and told that it was his mission to pass this message on to the people of Earth.

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

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

+ 365 Rabbi Eliezer would say: The honor of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own, and do not be easy to anger. Repent one day before your death. Asked his disciples: Does a man know on which day he will die? Said he to them: So being the case, he should repent today, for perhaps tomorrow he will die; hence, all his days are passed in a state of repentance. Indeed, so said Solomon in his wisdom (Ecclesiastes 9:8): 'At all times, your clothes should be white, and oil should not lack from your head'" (Talmud, Shabbat 153a). Pirkei Avot 2:10


+ 318 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 319 Shimon the son of Shotach would say: Increasingly cross-examine the witnesses. Be careful with your words, lest they learn from them how to lie. Pirkei Avot 1:9


+ 350 Rabban Yochanan the son of Zakkai had five disciples: Rabbi Eliezer the son of Hurkenus, Rabbi Joshua the son of Chananya, Rabbi Yossei the Kohen, Rabbi Shimon the son of Nethanel, and Rabbi Elazar the son of Arach. He would recount their praises: Rabbi Eliezer the son of Hurkenus is a cemented cistern that loses not a drop; Rabbi Joshua the son of Chananya---fortunate is she who gave birth to him; Rabbi Yossei the Kohen---a chassid (pious one); Rabbi Shimon the son of Nethanel fears sin; Rabbi Elazar ben Arach is as an ever-increasing wellspring. Rabbi Yochanan used to say: If all the sages of Israel were to be in one cup of a balance-scale, and Eliezer the son of Hurkenus were in the other, he would outweigh them all. Abba Shaul said in his name: If all the sages of Israel were to be in one cup of a balance-scale, Eliezer the son of Hurkenus included, and Elazar the son of Arach were in the other, he would outweigh them all. Pirkei Avot 2:9


+ 341 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


+ 317 Rabbi Elazar of Bartosa would say: Give Him what is His, for you, and whatever is yours, are His. As David says: "For everything comes from You, and from Your own hand we give to You" (I Chronicles 29:14). Rabbi Yaakov would say: One who walks along a road and studies, and interrupts his studying to say, "How beautiful is this tree!", "How beautiful is this ploughed field!"---the Torah considers it as if he had forfeited his life. Pirkei Avot 3:7


+ 368 Rabbi Dusta'i the son of Rabbi Yannai would say in the name of Rabbi Meir: Anyone who forgets even a single word of this learning, the Torah considers it as if he had forfeited his life. As is stated, "Just be careful, and verily guard your soul, lest you forget the things that your eyes have seen" (Deuteronomy 4:9). One might think that this applies also to one who has forgotten because his studies proved too difficult for him; but the verse goes on to tell us "and lest they be removed from your heart, throughout the days of your life." Hence, one does not forfeit his life unless he deliberately removes them from his heart. Pirkei Avot 3:8


+ 270 Rabbi Chanina the son of Dosa would say: One whose fear of sin takes precedence to his wisdom, his wisdom endures. But one whose wisdom takes precedence to his fear of sin, his wisdom does not endure. Pirkei Avot 3:9


+ 372 He would also say: Beloved is man, for he was created in the image [of G-d]; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to him that he was created in the image, as it is says, "For in the image of G-d, He made man" (Genesis 9:6). Beloved are Israel, for they are called children of G-d; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they are called children of G-d, as it is stated: "You are children of the L-rd your G-d" (Deuteronomy 14:1). Beloved are Israel, for they were given a precious article; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they were given a precious article, as it is stated: "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it" (Proverbs 4:2). Pirkei Avot 3:14


+ 326 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


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


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


+ 324 Carnage by wild beasts comes to the world for false oaths and the desecration of God's name. Exile comes to the world for idol-worship, sexual promiscuity, murder and the failure to leave the land fallow on the sabbatical year. There are four time-periods when plagues increase: on the fourth and seventh years [of the sabbatical cycle], on the year following the seventh, and following the festivals of each year. On the fourth year, because of [the neglect of] the tithe to the poor that must be given on the third year; on the seventh, because of the tithe to the poor that must be given on the sixth; on the year after the seventh, because of the produce of the sabbatical year; and following each festival, because of the robbing of the poor of the gifts due to them. Pirkei Avot 5:9


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


+ 325 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


+ 309 Great is Torah, for it gives life to its observers in this world, and in the World To Come. As is stated (Proverbs 4:22): "For they are life to he who finds them, and a healing to all his flesh." And it says (ibid. 3:8): "It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones." And it says (3:18): "She is a tree of life for those who hold fast to her, and happy are those who support her." And it says (1:9): "For they shall be a garland of grace for your head, and necklaces about your neck." And it says(4:9): "She shall give to your head a garland of grace, a crown of glory she shall grant you." And it says (9:11): "With me, your days shall be increased, and years of life shall be added to you." And it says (3:16): "Long days in her right hand; in her left, wealth and honor." And it says (3:2): "For long days, years of life and peace, they shall add to you." Pirkei Avot 6:7


+ 330 Rabbi Shimon the son of Judah would say in the name of Rabbi Shimon the son of Yochai: Beauty, strength, wealth, honor, wisdom, sageness, old age and children are becoming to the righteous and becoming to the world. As is stated (Proverbs 16:31): "Old age is a crown of beauty, to be found in the ways of righteousness." And it says (ibid. 20:29): "The beauty of youths is their strength, and the glory of sages is their age." And it says (ibid., 17:6): "The crown of sages are their grandchildren, and the beauty of children their fathers." And it says (Isaiah 24:23): "And the moon shall be abashed and the sun shamed, for the Lord of hosts has reigned in Zion, and before his elders is glory." Rabbi Shimon the son of Menasia would say: these seven qualities enumerated by the sages for the righteous were all realized in Rabbi [Judah HaNassi] and his sons. Pirkei Avot 6:8


+ 349 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


+ 377 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


+ 316 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.


+ 361 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?

+ 260 If you refuse to obey what you have been taught, your prayers will not be heard. Mishlei 28:9


+ 258 Those who work their land will have plenty of food, but the ones who chase empty dreams instead will end up poor. Mishlei 28:19


+ 246 Whoever is stubborn after being corrected many times will suddenly be hurt beyond cure. Mishlei 29:1


+ 234 When good people do well, everyone is happy, but when evil people rule, everyone groans. Mishlei 29:2


+ 265 Those who love wisdom make their parents happy, but friends of prostitutes waste their money. Mishlei 29:3

+ 325 “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)


+ 327 “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.

+ 328 In the din and tumult of the age, the still small voice of Jerusalem remains our only music. Israel Zangwill, 1921


+ 320 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

+ 277 If Jerusalem falls into the hands of the Muslims, Athens and Rome will be next. Thus, Jerusalem is the main front protecting the West. It is not a conflict over territory but rather an ideological battle, between the mentality of the liberated West and the ideology of Islamic barbarism. There has been an independent Palestinian state since 1946, and it is the kingdom of Jordan. Geert Wilders, quoted in "Geert Wilders: Change Jordan's name to Palestine". ynetnews.com. 20 June 2010.


+ 329 Jerusalem was only destroyed because its inhabitants desecrated the Shabbat, they refrained from reciting the Morning and Evening Shema, the children in the Torah day schools wasted their learning time, because they were not shame faced (to sin), because they made the minors equal to the adults, because one did not rebuke another, because they embarrassed Torah Scholars. Talmud, Shabbat 119b


+ 210 There are three gates to Gehinam (purgatory) — one of them is in Jerusalem. Talmud, Eruvin 19a

+ 349 “If there is a hard, high wall and an egg that breaks against it, no matter how right the wall or how wrong the egg, I will stand on the side of the egg. Why? Because each of us is an egg, a unique soul enclosed in a fragile egg. Each of us is confronting a high wall. The high wall is the system which forces us to do the things we would not ordinarily see fit to do as individuals . . . We are all human beings, individuals, fragile eggs. We have no hope against the wall: it's too high, too dark, too cold. To fight the wall, we must join our souls together for warmth, strength. We must not let the system control us -- create who we are. It is we who created the system. (Jerusalem Prize acceptance speech, JERUSALEM POST, Feb. 15, 2009)” Haruki Murakami


+ 262 9 For we were slaves. Yet our God did not forsake us in our bondage; but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem. Tyndale, The One Year Bible NKJV


+ 262 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Zechariah 9:9


+ 284 What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Kohelet 1:9


+ 266 So I became great, and I increased more than all who were before me in Jerusalem; also my wisdom remained with me. Kohelet 2:9


+ 272 And who knows whether he will be wise or foolish. And he will rule over all my toil that I have toiled and that I have gained wisdom under the sun; this too is vanity. Kohelet 2:19


+ 238 What profit has the one who works in that which he toils? Kohelet 3:9


+ 267 For there is a happening for the children of men, and there is a happening for the beasts-and they have one happening-like the death of this one is the death of that one, and all have one spirit, and the superiority of man over beast is nought, for all is vanity. Kohelet 3:19


+ 249 Two are better than one, since they have good reward for their toil. Kohelet 4:9


+ 265 Whoever loves silver will not be sated with silver, and he who loves a multitude without increase-this too is vanity. Kohelet 5:9


+ 263 For let him remember that the days of his life are not many, for God is testimony of the joy of his heart. Kohelet 5:19


+ 234 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


+ 260 Be not hasty with your spirit to become wroth, for wrath lies in the bosom of fools. Kohelet 7:9


+ 307 Wisdom affords strength to the wise more than ten rulers who were in the city. Kohelet 7:19


+ 240 See, only this one have I found, for God made man straight, but they sought many intrigues. Kohelet 7:29


+ 268 I saw all this, and I applied my heart to all the work that is done under the sun, a time that a man ruled over another man for his own harm. Kohelet 8:9


+ 279 For all this I laid to my heart and to clarify all this, that the righteous and the wise and their works are in God's hand; even love, even hate, man does not know; everything is before them. Kohelet 9:1


+ 273 Everything comes to them as it comes to all; there is one occurrence for the righteous and for the wicked, for the good, and for the pure, and for the unclean, and for he who sacrifices, and for he who does not sacrifice; like the good, so is the sinner; he who swears is like him who fears an oath. Kohelet 9:2


+ 262 This is the most evil in all that is done under the sun, that all have one occurrence, and also the heart of the children of men is full of evil, and there is madness in their heart in their lifetime, and after that they go to the dead. Kohelet 9:3


+ 274 For whoever is joined to all the living has hope, for concerning a live dog it is said that he is better than a dead lion. Kohelet 9:4


+ 227 For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward, for their remembrance is forgotten. Kohelet 9:5


+ 285 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


+ 260 Go, eat your bread joyfully and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already accepted your deeds. Kohelet 9:7


+ 276 At all times, let your garments be white, and let oil not be wanting on your head. Kohelet 9:8


+ 289 Enjoy life with the wife whom you love all the days of the life of your vanity, whom He has given you under the sun, all the days of your vanity, for that is your portion in life and in your toil that you toil under the sun. Kohelet 9:9


+ 286 Whatever your hand attains to do as long as you are with your strength, do; for there is neither deed nor reckoning, neither knowledge nor wisdom in the grave, where you are going. Kohelet 9:10


+ 282 I returned and saw under the sun, that the race does not belong to the swift, nor the war to the mighty; neither do the wise have bread, nor do the understanding have riches, nor the knowledgeable, favor; for time and fate will overtake them all. Kohelet 9:11


+ 276 For a person does not even know his time, like the fish that are caught with an inferior trap and like the birds that are caught in the snare; like them, the children of men are trapped at a time of evil, when it falls upon them suddenly. Kohelet 9:12


+ 250 This also have I seen as wisdom under the sun, and it seemed great to me. Kohelet 9:13


+ 282 There was a small city, with few people in it, and a great king came upon it and surrounded it and built over it great bulwarks. Kohelet 9:14


+ 258 And there was found therein a poor wise man, and he extricated the city through his wisdom, but no man remembered that poor man. Kohelet 9:15


+ 239 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


+ 276 The words of the wise are heard when spoken softly, more than the shout of a ruler of fools. Kohelet 9:17


+ 248 Wisdom is better than weapons, and one sinner destroys much good. Kohelet 9:18


+ 278 One who quarries stones shall be wearied by them; one who hews wood shall be warmed by it. Kohelet 10:9


+ 253 On joyous occasions, a feast is made, and wine gladdens the living, and money answers everything. Kohelet 10:19


+ 268 Rejoice, O youth, in your childhood, and let your heart bring you cheer in the days of your youth, and go in the ways of your heart, and in the sight of your eyes, but know that for all these God will bring you to judgment. Kohelet 11:9


+ 236 And more than this, Koheleth was wise, he also taught knowledge to the people; he listened and sought out, he established many proverbs. Kohelet 12:9


+ 318 TED is a platform for ideas worth spreading. Started in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design converged, TED today shares ideas from a broad spectrum — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independent TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.


+ 304 I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. Michael Jordan


+ 238 Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. Charles Swindoll


+ 304 We started off with a very idealistic perspective — that doing something with the highest quality, doing it right the first time, would really be cheaper than having to go back and do it again. Steve Jobs - Newsweek, 1984


+ 316 Silicon Valley for the most part at that time was still orchards — apricot orchards and prune orchards — and it was really paradise. I remember the air being crystal clear, where you could see from one end of the valley to the other. Steve Jobs — On growing up in Silicon Valley in the early 1960s, Smithsonian Institution, 1995


+ 299 Things became much more clear that they were the results of human creation not these magical things that just appeared in one's environment that one had no knowledge of their interiors. It gave a tremendous level of self-confidence, that through exploration and learning one could understand seemingly very complex things in one's environment. My childhood was very fortunate in that way. Steve Jobs — Smithsonian Institution, 1995


+ 381 When we finally presented [the Macintosh desktop computer] at the shareholders' meeting, everyone in the auditorium gave it a five-minute ovation. What was incredible to me was that I could see the Mac team in the first few rows. It was as though none of us could believe we'd actually finished it. Everyone started crying. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 279 Usually it takes ten years and a 100 million dollars to associate a symbol with the name of the company. Our challenge was how could we have a little jewel that we could use without a name to put on the product? Steve Jobs — 1993 interview about the famous Apple logo


+ 290 I was in the parking lot, with the key in the car, and I thought to myself, If this is my last night on earth, would I rather spend it at a business meeting or with this woman? I ran across the parking lot, asked her if she'd have dinner with me. She said yes, we walked into town and we've been together ever since. Steve Jobs — On meeting his wife, Laurene, The New York Times, 1997


+ 316 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


+ 401 I was lucky — I found what I love to do early in life. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and I very much like Bob Dylan's poetry, and we spent a lot of time thinking about a lot of that stuff. This was California. You could get LSD fresh made from Stanford. You could sleep on the beach at night with your girlfriend. California has a sense of experimentation and a sense of openness — openness to new possibilities. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 291 You saw the 1984 commercial. Macintosh was basically this relatively small company in Cupertino, California, taking on the goliath, IBM, and saying, 'Wait a minute, your way is wrong. This is not the way we want computers to go. This is not the legacy we want to leave. This is not what we want our kids to be learning. This is wrong and we are going to show you the right way to do it and here it is. It's called Macintosh and it is so much better. It's going to beat you and you're going to do it'. Steve Jobs — Smithsonian Institution. 1995


+ 291 You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new. Steve Jobs — Inc. 1989


+ 343 Apple has some tremendous assets, but I believe without some attention, the company could, could, could — I'm searching for the right word — could, could die. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1997, on his return to Apple as CEO


+ 316 That's been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 1998


+ 296 You can't really predict exactly what will happen, but you can feel the direction that we're going. And that's about as close as you can get. Then you just stand back and get out of the way, and these things take on a life of their own. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone, 1994


+ 275 We're gambling on our vision, and we would rather do that than make 'me too' products. Let some other companies do that. For us, it's always the next dream. Steve Jobs — Interview for the release of the Macintosh, 1984


+ 281 We're gambling on our vision, and we would rather do that than make 'me too' products. Let some other companies do that. For us, it's always the next dream. Steve Jobs — Interview for the release of the Macintosh, 1984


+ 215 We're not just building a computer, we're building a company. Steve Jobs — Esquire. 1986


+ 310 If Mercedes made a bicycle or a hamburger or a computer, I don't think there'd be much advantage in having its logo on it. I don't think Apple would get much equity putting its name on an automobile, either. And just because the whole world is going digital — TV, audio, and all that — doesn't mean there's anything wrong with just being in the computer business. The computer business is huge. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 282 I think the way out is not to slash and burn, it's to innovate. That's how Apple got to its glory, and that's how Apple could return to it. Steve Jobs — Wall Street Week, 1996


+ 260 We're gambling on our vision, and we would rather do that than make 'me too' products. Let some other companies do that. For us, it's always the next dream. Steve Jobs — Interview, 1994


+ 273 I don't think in terms of market shares, 1 think in terms of us making the best personal computers in the world, and if we can do that. I think our market share will go up. Steve Jobs — CHA 1999


+ 307 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


+ 288 I've also found that the best companies pay attention to aesthetics. They take the extra time to lay out grids and proportion things appropriately, and it seems to pay off for them. I mean, beyond the functional benefits, the aesthetic communicates something about how they think of themselves, their sense of discipline in engineering, how they run their company, stuff like that. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 237 In business, if I knew earlier what I know now, I'd have probably done some things a lot better than I did, but I also would've probably done some other things a lot worse. But so what? It's more important to be engaged in the present. Steve Jobs — Fortune. 1998


+ 248 Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone, 1994


+ 245 This is not a one-man show. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 1998


+ 307 My number one job here at Apple is to make sure that the top 100 people are A+ players. And everything else will take care of itself. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1999


+ 275 I'm a very big believer in equal opportunity as opposed to equal outcome. I don't believe in equal outcome because unfortunately life's not like that. It would be a pretty boring place if it was. Steve Jobs — Computerworld Smithsonian Awards, 1995


+ 266 We all tend to reduce reality to symbols, but Superman went out a long time ago. The way you accomplish anything significant is with a team. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 295 I know people tike symbols, but it's always unsettling when people write stories about me, because they tend to overlook a lot of other people. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1999


+ 274 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


+ 270 We believe it's the biggest advance in animation since Walt Disney started it all with the release of Snow White 50 years ago. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1995, on Toy Story


+ 241 iMac is next year's computer for $1,299, not last year's computer for $999. Steve Jobs — Introducing the first iMac computer, 1998


+ 253 It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 1998


+ 362 What we want to do is make a leapfrog product that is way smarter than any mobile device has ever been, and super-easy to use. This is what iPhone is. OK? So. we're going to reinvent the phone. innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. it's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 310 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


+ 265 It's rare that you see an artist in his 30s or 40s able to really contribute something amazing. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 298 The products suck! There's no sex in them anymore! Steve Jobs — On the state of Apple just before his return, BusinessWeek, 1997


+ 295 When you're a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you're not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You'll know it's there, so you're going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through. Steve Jobs — 1985


+ 309 Don't take it all too seriously. If you want to live your life in a creative way, as an artist, you have to not look back too much. You have to be willing to take whatever you've done and whoever you were and throw them away. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 262 You've got to start with the customer experience and work back toward the technology — not the other way around. Steve Jobs — Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, 1997


+ 274 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


+ 293 There's an old Wayne Gretzky quote that I love. 'I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.' And we've always tried to do that at Apple. Since the very very beginning. And we always will. You know, I've got a plan that could rescue Apple. I can't say any more than that it's the perfect product and the perfect strategy for Apple. But nobody there will listen to me… Steve Jobs— Fortune, 1995


+ 285 They really thought the process through. They did such a great job designing these washers and dryers. I got more thrill out of them than I have out of any piece of high tech in years. Steve Jobs — On Miele, a Germany-based manufacturer of high-end domestic appliances, Wired, 1996


+ 268 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


+ 286 I told him I believed every word of what I'd said but that I never should have said it in public. Steve Jobs — On apologizing to Bill Gates for disparaging Microsoft in a documentary, The New York Times. 1997


+ 254 Nobody has tried to swallow us since I've been here. I think they are afraid how we would taste. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek. 1998


+ 289 With our technology, with objects, literally three people in a garage can blow away what 200 people at Microsoft can do. Bill Gates'd be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger. Steve Jobs — The New York Times, 1997


+ 256 Unfortunately, people are not rebelling against Microsoft They don't know any better. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone, 1994


+ 300 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


+ 236 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


+ 276 For me, the most exciting thing in the software area is the Internet, and part of the reason for that is no one owns it. It's a free for all, it's much like the early days of the personal computer. Steve Jobs — Wall Street Week, 1995


+ 225 It'll make your jaw drop. Steve Jobs — On the first NeXT computer. The New York Times, 1989


+ 283 Computers are the first thing to come along since books that will sit there and interact with you endlessly, without judgment. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 250 I think humans are basically tool builders, and the computer is the most remarkable tool we've ever built. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 328 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


+ 355 A computer is the most incredible tool we've ever seen. It can be a writing tool, a communications center, a supercalculator, a planner, a filer and an artistic instrument all in one, just by being given new instructions, or software, to work from. There are no other tools that have the power and versatility of a computer. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 277 I think humans are basically tool builders, and the computer is the most remarkable tool we've ever built. The big insight a lot of us had in the 1970s had to do with the importance of putting that tool in the hands of individuals. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 244 There are no other tools that have the power and versatility of a computer. We have no idea how far it's going to go. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 278 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


+ 321 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


+ 272 The Apple II peeled off the hardware layer. You didn't need to know about the hardware to use a computer. The next step was the transition from the Apple II to the Macintosh, which peeled off the computer-literacy layer, if you will. In other words, you didn't have to be a hacker or a computer scientist to use one of these. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 269 What a computer is to me is the most remarkable tool that we have ever come up with. It's the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds. Steve Jobs — Memory and Imagination: New Pathways to the Library of Congress (1991)


+ 291 Whenever you do any one thing intensely over a period of time, you have to give up other lives you could be living. You have to have a real single-minded kind of tunnel vision if you want to get anything significant accomplished. Especially if the desire is not to be a businessman, but to be a creative person. Steve Jobs — Esquire, 1986


+ 221 Think I have five more great products in me. Steve Jobs — Esquire, 1986


+ 287 I'm convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance. It is so hard. You put so much of your life into this thing. Steve Jobs — Computerworld Smithsonian Awards, 1995


+ 308 You've got to be careful choosing what you're going to do. Once you pick something you really care about, and it's a worthwhile thing to do, then you can kind of forget about it and just work at it. The dedication comes naturally. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 248 Pixar is making art for the ages. Kids will be watching Toy Story in the future. And Apple is much more of a constant race to continually improve things and stay ahead of the competition. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1999


+ 248 Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me… Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful. — that's what matters to me. Steve Jobs — The Wall Street journal, 1993


+ 307 And no, we don't know where it will lead. We just know there's something much bigger than any of us here. Apple really beats to a different drummer. 1 used to say that Apple should be the Sony of this business, but in reality, I think Apple should be the Apple of this business. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 1998


+ 317 Apple is a $30 billion company, yet we've got less than 30 major products. I don't know if that's ever been done before. If you go out and ask people what's wrong with computers today, they'll tell you they're really complicated, they have a zillion cables coming out of the back, they're really big and noisy, they're really ugly, and they take forever to get on the Internet. And so we tried to set out to fix those problems with products like the iMac. Steve Jobs — CNA, 1999


+ 269 I don't think that people have special responsibilities just because they've done something that other people like or don't like. I think the work speaks for itself. Steve Jobs — Smithsonian Institution, 1995


+ 304 So let's not use a stylus. We're going to use the best pointing device in the world. We're going to use a pointing device that we're all born with — born with ten of them. We're going to use our fingers. We're going to touch this with our fingers. And we have invented a new technology called multi-touch, which is phenomenal. It works like magic. Picasso had a saying: 'Good artists copy, great artists steal.' We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas… I think part of what made the Macintosh great was that the people working on it were musicians, poets, artists, zoologists and historians who also happened to be the best computer scientists in the world. Steve Jobs — Interview, 1994


+ 331 There's nothing that makes my day more than getting an e-mail from some random person in the universe who just bought an iPad over in the UK and tells rne the story about how it's the coolest product they've ever brought home in their lives. That's what keeps me going. Apple turns out many products — a dozen a year; if you count all the minor ones, probably a hundred. Pixar is striving to turn out one a year. But the converse of that is that Pixar's products will still be used fifty years from now, whereas I don't think you'll be using any product Apple brings to market this year fifty years from now. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1999


+ 375 John Sculley ruined Apple and he ruined it by bringing a set of values to the top of Apple which were corrupt and corrupted some of the top people who were there, drove out some of the ones who were not corruptible, and brought in more corrupt ones and paid themselves collectively tens of millions of dollars and cared more about their own glory and wealth than they did about what built Apple in the first place — which was making great computers for people to use. Steve Jobs — Computerworld Smithsonian Awards Program, 1995


+ 268 I've had lots of girlfriends. But the greatest high in my life was the day we introduced the Macintosh. Steve Jobs — Esquire, 1986


+ 228 It's more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy. Steve Jobs — Odyssey: Pepsi to Apple. 1982


+ 247 The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do. Steve Jobs — "Think Different" promotional video by Apple, 1997


+ 288 Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. Just to try to be as good a father to them as my father was to me. I think about that every day of my life. Steve Jobs — On raising his children, The New York Times, 1997


+ 311 I was worth about over a million dollars when I was twenty-three and over ten million dollars when I was twenty-four, and over a hundred million dollars when I was twenty-five and it wasn't that important because I never did it for the money. Steve Jobs — Triumph of the Nerds, 1996


+ 265 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


+ 300 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


+ 255 I always stay connected with Apple. Steve Jobs — Playboy. 1985


+ 269 You know, my main reaction to this money thing is that it's humorous, all the attention to it, because it's hardly the most insightful or valuable thing that's happened to me. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 283 I remain extremely concerned when I see what's happening in our country, which is in many ways the luckiest place in the world. We don't seem to be excited about making our country a better place for our kids. Steve Jobs — Wired. 1996


+ 267 My self-identity does not revolve around being a businessman, though I recognize that is what I do. I think of myself more as a person who builds neat things. I like building neat things. I like making tools that are useful to people. Steve Jobs — Esquire, 1986


+ 296 I feel like somebody just punched me in the stomach and knocked all my wind out. I'm only 30 years old and I want to have a chance to continue creating things. I know I've got at least one more great computer in me. And Apple is not going to give me a chance to do that. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1987


+ 310 — An oft-used phrase used to unveil products towards the end of Apple presentations Remember The Whole Earth Catalog? The last edition had a photo on the back cover of a remote country road you might find yourself on while hitchhiking up to Oregon. It was a beautiful shot, and it had a caption that really grabbed me. It said: 'Stay hungry. Stay foolish.' It wasn't an ad for anything — just one of Stewart Brand's profound statements. It's wisdom. 'Stay hungry. Stay foolish.' Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 284 Paper is no longer a big part of my day. I get 90% of my news online, and when I go to a meeting and want to jot things down, I bring my Tablet PC. It's fully synchronized with my office machine, so I have all the files I need. It also has a note-taking piece of software called OneNote, so all my notes are in digital form. Bill Gates


+ 301 The joke about SAP has always been, it's making '50s German manufacturing methodology, implemented in 1960s software technology, delivered to 1970-style manufacturing organizations, like, it's really - yeah, the incumbency - they are still the lingering hangover from the dot-com crash. Marc Andreessen


+ 315 If I say I've got two versions of Word - that old one from 1982 that's perfect, with zero defects; or the new one that's got all this cool new stuff, but there might be a few bugs in it - people always want the new one. But I wouldn't want them to operate a plane I was on with software that happened to be the latest greatest release! Nathan Myhrvold


+ 280 My darling, you are like a mare among the king’s stallions.
Song of Solomon 1:9


+ 335 My lover is like a gazelle or a young deer. Look, he stands behind our wall peeking through the windows, looking through the blinds.
Song of Solomon 2:9


+ 245 King Solomon had a couch made for himself of wood from Lebanon.
Song of Solomon 3:9


+ 278 My sister, my bride,
you have thrilled my heart;
you have thrilled my heart
with a glance of your eyes,
with one sparkle from your necklace.
Song of Solomon 4:9


+ 296 How is your lover better than other lovers,
most beautiful of women?
How is your lover better than other lovers?
Why do you want us to promise this?
Song of Solomon 5:9


+ 317 But there is only one like my dove, my perfect one.
She is her mother’s only daughter,
the brightest of the one who gave her birth.
The young women saw her and called her happy;
the queens and the slave women also praised her.
Song of Solomon 6:9


+ 307 And your mouth like the best wine.
Let this wine go down sweetly for my lover;
may it flow gently past the lips and teeth.
Song of Solomon 7:9


+ 303 If she is a wall,
we will put silver towers on her.
If she is a door,
we will protect her with cedar boards.
Song of Solomon 8:9


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


+ 348 The evidence from anthropology concurs with history in refuting the popular belief in a Jewish race descended from the biblical tribe. From the anthropologist's point of view, two groups of facts militate against this belief: the wide diversity of Jews with regard to physical characteristics, and their similarity to the Gentile population amidst whom they live. Both are reflected in the statistics about bodily height, cranial index, blood-groups, hair and eye colour, etc. Whichever of these anthropological criteria is taken as an indicator, it shows a greater similarity between Jews and their Gentile host-nation than between Jews living in different countries. ...The obvious biological explanation for both phenomena is miscegenation, which took different forms in different historical situations: intermarriage, large-scale proselytizing, rape as a constant (legalized or tolerated) accompaniment of war and pogrom. The Thirteenth Tribe (1976). Arthur Koestler


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


+ 301 The evolution of electric power from the discovery of Faraday to the initial great installation of the Tesla polyphase system in 1896 is undoubtedly the most tremendous event in all engineering history. Charles F. Scott


+ 397 Tesla, with his almost preternatural insight into alternating current phenomenon that had enabled him some years before to revolutionize the art of electric power transmission through the invention of the rotary field motor, knew how to make resonance serve, not merely the role of a microscope to make visible the electric oscillations, as Hertz had done, but he made it serve the role of a stereopticon to render spectacular to large audiences the phenomena of electric oscillations and high frequency currents....He did more to excite interest and create an intelligent understanding of these phenomena in the years 1891–1893 than anyone else, and the more we learn about high frequency phenomena, resonance, and radiation today, the nearer we find ourselves approaching what we at one time were inclined, through a species of intellectual myopia, to regard as the fascinating but fantastical speculations of a man whom we are now compelled, in the light of modern experience and knowledge, to admit was a prophet. But Tesla was no mere lecturer and prophet. He saw to the fulfillment of his prophesies and it has been difficult to make any but unimportant improvements in the art of radio-telegraphy without traveling part of the way at least, along a trail blazed by this pioneer who, though eminently ingenious, practical, and successful in the apparatus he devised and constructed, was so far ahead of his time that the best of us then mistook him for a dreamer. I never came anywhere near having an appreciation of what Mr. Tesla had done in this art until a very late date... John Stone Stone


+ 339 It seems that I have always been ahead of my time. I had to wait nineteen years before Niagara was harnessed by my system, fifteen years before the basic inventions for wireless which I gave to the world in 1893 were applied universally. Nikola Tesla


+ 331 The earth is bountiful, and where her bounty fails, nitrogen drawn from the air will refertilize her womb. I developed a process for this purpose in 1900. It was perfected fourteen years later under the stress of war by German chemists. Nikola Tesla


+ 234 The top salesperson in the organization probably missed more sales than 90% of the sales people on the team, but they also made more calls than the others made. Zig Ziglar


+ 254 Whenever I have met with our elected officials they are invariably thoughtful, well-meaning people. And yet collectively 90% of their effort seems to be focused on how to stick it to the other party. Hall, Kevin


+ 218 And God said, Let the water that is beneath the heavens gather into one place, and let the dry land appear, and it was so. Bereshit 1:9


+ 205 It was evening and it was morning, a fourth day. Bereshit 1:19


+ 212 God said, Behold, I have given you every seedbearing plant on the face of the earth, and every tree that has seedbearing fruit. It shall be to you for food. Bereshit 1:29


+ 215 God made grow out of the ground every tree that is pleasant to look at and good to eat, including the Tree of Life in the middle of the garden, and the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil. Bereshit 2:9


+ 227 God had formed every wild beast and every bird of heaven out of the ground. He now brought them to the man to see what he would name each one. Whatever the man called each living thing would remain its name. Bereshit 2:19


+ 176 God called to the man, and He said, Where are you trying to hide? Bereshit 3:9


+ 210 By the sweat of your brow you will eat bread. Finally you will return to the ground, for it was from the ground that you were taken. You are dust, and to dust you shall return. Bereshit 3:19


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


+ 175 Lemekh married two women. The first one's name was Adah, and the second one's name was Tzillah. Bereshit 4:19

+ 165 Yered lived 800 years after he had Enoch, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:19


+ 177 All of Yered's days were 962 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:20


+ 172 All of Methuselah's days were 969 years, and he died. Bereshit 5:27


+ 206 He named him Noah, saying, This one will bring us relief from our work and the anguish of our hands, from the soil that God has cursed. Bereshit 5:29


+ 198 Lemekh lived 595 years after he had Noah, and he had sons and daughters. Bereshit 5:30


+ 188 These are the generations of Noah, Noah was a righteous man he was perfect in his generations; Noah walked with God. Bereshit 6:9


+ 178 And of all living things of all flesh, two of each you shall bring into the ark to preserve alive with you; they shall be male and female. Bereshit 6:19


+ 217 Two by two they came to Noah to the ark, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. Bereshit 7:9


+ 185 And the waters became exceedingly powerful upon the earth, and all the lofty mountains that were under the heavens were covered up. Bereshit 7:19


+ 203 But the dove found no resting place for the sole of its foot; so it returned to him to the ark because there was water upon the entire surface of the earth; so he stretched forth his hand and took it, and he brought it to him to the ark. Bereshit 8:9


+ 180 Every beast, every creeping thing, and all fowl, everything that moves upon the earth, according to their families they went forth from the ark. Bereshit 8:19


+ 192 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and He said to them: Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. Bereshit 9:1


+ 226 And your fear and your dread shall be upon all the beasts of the earth and upon all the fowl of the heaven; upon everything that creeps upon the ground and upon all the fish of the sea, for they have been given into your hands. Bereshit 9:2


+ 180 Every moving thing that lives shall be yours to eat; like the green vegetation, I have given you everything. Bereshit 9:3


+ 182 But, flesh with its soul, its blood, you shall not eat. Bereshit 9:4


+ 204 But your blood, of your souls, I will demand an account; from the hand of every beast I will demand it, and from the hand of man, from the hand of each man, his brother, I will demand the soul of man. Bereshit 9:5


+ 167 Whoever sheds the blood of man through man shall his blood be shed, for in the image of God He made man. Bereshit 9:6


+ 193 And you, be fruitful and multiply; swarm upon the earth and multiply thereon. Bereshit 9:7


+ 204 And God said to Noah and to his sons with him, saying: Bereshit 9:8


+ 171 And I, behold I am setting up My covenant with you and with your seed after you. Bereshit 9:9


+ 187 And with every living creature that is with you, among the fowl, among the cattle, and among all the beasts of the earth with you, of all those who came out of the ark, of all the living creatures of the earth. Bereshit 9:10


+ 195 And I will establish My covenant with you, and never again will all flesh be cut off by the flood waters, and there will never again be a flood to destroy the earth. Bereshit 9:11


+ 205 And God said: This is the sign of the covenant, which I am placing between Me and between you, and between every living soul that is with you, for everlasting generations. Bereshit 9:12


+ 186 My rainbow I have placed in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Myself and the earth. Bereshit 9:13


+ 177 And it shall come to pass, when I cause clouds to come upon the earth, that the rainbow will appear in the cloud. Bereshit 9:14


+ 235 And I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and between you and between every living creature among all flesh, and the water will no longer become a flood to destroy all flesh. Bereshit 9:15


+ 198 And the rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will see it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and between every living creature among all flesh, which is on the earth. Bereshit 9:16


+ 218 And God said to Noah: This is the sign of the covenant that I have set up, between Myself and between all flesh that is on the earth. Bereshit 9:17


+ 296 And the sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and Ham he was the father of Canaan. Bereshit 9:18


+ 195 These three were the sons of Noah, and from these, the entire earth spread out. Bereshit 9:19


+ 183 And Noah began to be a master of the soil, and he planted a vineyard. Bereshit 9:20


+ 182 And he drank of the wine and became drunk, and he uncovered himself within his tent. Bereshit 9:21


+ 196 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness, and he told his two brothers outside. Bereshit 9:22


+ 223 And Shem and Japheth took the garment, and they placed it on both of their shoulders, and they walked backwards, and they covered their father's nakedness, and their faces were turned backwards, so that they did not see their father's nakedness. Bereshit 9:23


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


+ 192 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; he shall be a slave among slaves to his brethren. Bereshit 9:25


+ 190 And he said, Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem, and may Canaan be a slave to them. Bereshit 9:26


+ 194 May God expand Japheth, and may He dwell in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be a slave to them. Bereshit 9:27


+ 187 And Noah lived after the Flood, three hundred and fifty years. Bereshit 9:28


+ 185 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years, and he died. Bereshit 9:29


+ 168 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord. Bereshit 10:9


+ 223 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as you come to Gerar, until Gaza, as you come to Sodom and Gomorrah, and Admah and Zeboiim, until Lesha. Bereshit 10:19


+ 197 And Ophir and Havilah and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan. Bereshit 10:29


+ 203 Therefore, He named it Babel, for there the Lord confused the language of the entire earth, and from there the Lord scattered them upon the face of the entire earth. Bereshit 11:9


+ 216 And Peleg lived after he had begotten Reu, two hundred and nine years, and he begot sons and daughters. Bereshit 11:19


+ 189 And Abram and Nahor took themselves wives; the name of Abram's wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor's wife was Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah and the father of Iscah. Bereshit 11:29


+ 157 And Abram traveled, continually traveling southward. Bereshit 12:9


+ 186 Why did you say, She is my sister, so that I took her to myself for a wife? And now, here is your wife; take her and go. Bereshit 12:19


+ 204 Is not all the land before you? Please part from me; if you go left, I will go right, and if you go right, I will go left. Bereshit 13:9


+ 204 With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam and Tidal the king of Goyim and Amraphel the king of Shinar and Arioch the king of Ellasar, four kings against the five. Bereshit 14:9


+ 166 And he blessed him, and he said, Blessed be Abram to the Most High God, Who possesses heaven and earth. Bereshit 14:19


+ 197 And He said to him, Take for Me three heifers and three goats and three rams, and a turtle dove and a young bird. Bereshit 15:9


+ 155 The Kenites, the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, Bereshit 15:19


+ 180 And the angel of the Lord said to her, Return to your mistress, and allow yourself to be afflicted under her hands. Bereshit 16:9


+ 194 And God said to Abraham, And you shall keep My covenant, you and your seed after you throughout their generations. Bereshit 17:9


+ 216 And God said, Indeed, your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you shall name him Isaac, and I will establish My covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his seed after him. Bereshit 17:19


+ 172 And they said to him, Where is Sarah your wife? And he said, Behold in the tent. Bereshit 18:9


+ 229 For I have known him because he commands his sons and his household after him, that they should keep the way of the Lord to perform righteousness and justice, in order that the Lord bring upon Abraham that which He spoke concerning him. Bereshit 18:19


+ 175 And he continued further to speak to Him, and he said, Perhaps forty will be found there. And He said, I will not do it for the sake of the forty. Bereshit 18:29


+ 187 And the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom, and Lot saw and arose toward them, and he prostrated himself on his face to the ground. Bereshit 19:1


+ 208 And he said, Behold now my lords, please turn to your servant's house and stay overnight and wash your feet, and you shall arise early and go on your way. And they said, No, but we will stay overnight in the street. Bereshit 19:2


+ 185 And he urged them strongly, and they turned in to him, and came into his house, and he made them a feast, and he baked unleavened cakes, and they ate. Bereshit 19:3


+ 174 When they had not yet retired, and the people of the city, the people of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old, the entire populace from every end of the city. Bereshit 19:4


+ 183 And they called to Lot and said to him, Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, and let us be intimate with them. Bereshit 19:5


+ 174 And Lot came out to them to the entrance, and he shut the door behind him. Bereshit 19:6


+ 176 And he said, My brethren, please do not do evil. Bereshit 19:7


+ 222 Behold now I have two daughters who were not intimate with a man. I will bring them out to you, and do to them as you see fit; only to these men do nothing, because they have come under the shadow of my roof. Bereshit 19:8


+ 194 But they said, Back away. And they said, This one came to sojourn, and he is judging! Now, we will deal even worse with you than with them. And they pressed hard upon the man Lot, and they drew near to break the door. Bereshit 19:9


+ 189 And the men stretched forth their hands, and they brought Lot to them to the house, and they shut the door. Bereshit 19:10


+ 218 And the men who were at the entrance of the house they struck with blindness, both small and great, and they toiled in vain to find the entrance. Bereshit 19:11


+ 177 And the men said to Lot, Whom else do you have here? A son-in-law, your sons, and your daughters, and whomever you have in the city, take out of the place. Bereshit 19:12


+ 176 For we are destroying this place, because their cry has become great before the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it. Bereshit 19:13


+ 211 So Lot went forth and spoke to his sons-in-law, the suitors of his daughters, and he said, Arise, go forth from this place, for the Lord is destroying the city, but he seemed like a comedian in the eyes of his sons-in-law. Bereshit 19:14


+ 214 And as the dawn rose, the angels pressed Lot, saying, Get up, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you perish because of the iniquity of the city. Bereshit 19:15


+ 165 But he tarried, and the men took hold of his hand and his wife's hand, and the hand of his two daughters, out of the Lord's pity for him, and they took him out and placed him outside the city. Bereshit 19:16


+ 196 And it came to pass, when they took them outside, that he said, Flee for your life, do not look behind you, and do not stand in the entire plain. Flee to the mountain, lest you perish. Bereshit 19:17


+ 168 And Lot said to them, Please, do not, O Lord. Bereshit 19:18


+ 214 Behold now, Your servant has found favor in Your eyes, and You have increased Your kindness, which You have done with me, to sustain my soul. But I cannot flee to the mountain, lest the evil overtake me, and I die. Bereshit 19:19


+ 204 Behold now, this city is near to flee there, and it is small. Let me please flee there. Is it not small? And my soul will survive. Bereshit 19:20


+ 176 And he said to him, Behold I have favored you also as regards this matter, that I will not overturn the city that you have mentioned. Bereshit 19:21


+ 187 Hasten, flee there, for I will not be able to do anything until you arrive there. Therefore, he named the city Zoar. Bereshit 19:22


+ 162 The sun came out upon the earth, and Lot came to Zoar. Bereshit 19:23


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


+ 178 And He turned over these cities and the entire plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and the vegetation of the ground. Bereshit 19:25


+ 174 And his wife looked from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. Bereshit 19:26


+ 167 And Abraham arose early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. Bereshit 19:27


+ 192 And he looked over the face of Sodom and Gomorrah and over the entire face of the land of the plain, and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the earth had risen like the smoke of a furnace. Bereshit 19:28


+ 204 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and He sent Lot out of the midst of the destruction when He overturned the cities in which Lot had dwelt. Bereshit 19:29


+ 182 And Lot went up from Zoar, and he dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters were with him, for he was afraid to dwell in Zoar; so he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. Bereshit 19:30


+ 188 And the elder said to the younger, Our father is old, and there is no man on earth to come upon us, as is the custom of all the earth. Bereshit 19:31


+ 192 Come, let us give our father wine to drink, and let us lie with him, and let us bring to life seed from our father. Bereshit 19:32


+ 193 And they gave their father wine to drink on that night, and the elder came and lay with her father, and he did not know of her lying down or of her rising up. Bereshit 19:33


+ 207 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the elder said to the younger, Behold, last night I lay with my father. Let us give him wine to drink tonight too, and come, lie with him, and let us bring to life seed from our father. Bereshit 19:34


+ 198 So they gave their father to drink on that night also, and the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know of her lying down or of her rising up. Bereshit 19:35


+ 170 And Lot's two daughters conceived from their father. Bereshit 19:36


+ 165 And the elder bore a son, and she named him Moab; he is the father of Moab until this day. Bereshit 19:37


+ 180 And the younger, she too bore a son, and she named him Ben-ami; he is the father of the children of Ammon until this day. Bereshit 19:38


+ 192 And Abimelech summoned Abraham and said to him, What have you done to us, and what have I sinned against you, that you have brought upon me and upon my kingdom a great sin? Deeds that are not done, you have done to me. Bereshit 20:9


+ 200 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, making merry. Bereshit 21:9


+ 168 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water, and she went and filled the pouch with water and gave the lad to drink. Bereshit 21:19


+ 186 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What are these seven ewe lambs, which you have placed by themselves? Bereshit 21:29


+ 186 And they came to the place of which God had spoken to him, and Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and he bound Isaac his son and placed him on the altar upon the wood. Bereshit 22:9


+ 197 And Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beer sheba; and Abraham remained in Beer sheba. Bereshit 22:19


+ 201 That he may give me the Machpelah (double) Cave, which belongs to him, which is at the end of his field; for a full price let him give it to me in your midst for burial property. Bereshit 23:9


+ 211 And afterwards, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah, facing Mamre, which is Hebron, in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 23:19


+ 162 And the servant placed his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and he swore to him concerning this matter. Bereshit 24:9


+ 187 And she finished giving him to drink, and she said, I will also draw for your camels, until they will have finished drinking. Bereshit 24:19


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


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


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


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


+ 212 And Isaac and Ishmael his sons buried him in the Cave of Machpelah in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which faces Mamre, Bereshit 25:9


+ 193 And these are the generations of Isaac the son of Abraham; Abraham begot Isaac. Bereshit 25:19


+ 207 Now Jacob cooked a pottage, and Esau came from the field, and he was faint. Bereshit 25:29


+ 250 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


+ 191 And Isaac's servants dug in the valley, and they found there a well of living waters. Bereshit 26:19


+ 197 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


+ 180 Go now to the flock, and take for me from there two choice kids, and I will make them tasty foods for your father, as he likes. Bereshit 27:9


+ 217 And Jacob said to his father, I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you have spoken to me. Please rise, sit down and eat of my game, so that your soul will bless me. Bereshit 27:19


+ 182 Nations shall serve you and kingdoms shall bow down to you; you shall be a master over your brothers, and your mother's sons shall bow down to you. Those who curse you shall be cursed, and those who bless you shall be blessed. Bereshit 27:29


+ 208 And his father Isaac answered and said to him, Behold, your dwelling place shall be the fat places of the earth and of the dew of the heaven from above. Bereshit 27:39


+ 177 So Esau went to Ishmael, and he took Mahalath, the daughter of Ishmael, the son of Abraham, the sister of Nebaioth, in addition to his other wives as a wife. Bereshit 28:9


+ 181 And he named the place Beth El, but Luz was orignally the name of the city. Bereshit 28:19


+ 194 Now Jacob lifted his feet and went to the land of the people of the East. Bereshit 29:01


+ 200 And he looked, and behold! a well in the field, and behold! three flocks of sheep lying beside it, because from that well they would water the flocks, and a huge rock was upon the mouth of the well. Bereshit 29:02


+ 198 And all the flocks would gather there, and they would roll the rock off the mouth of the well and water the sheep, and then they would return the rock onto the mouth of the well, to its place. Bereshit 29:3


+ 184 And Jacob said to them, My brothers, where are you from? And they said, We are from Haran. 29:4


+ 180 And he said to them, Do you know Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him. Bereshit 29:5


+ 173 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


+ 176 And he said, The day is yet long; it is not the time to take in the livestock. Water the sheep and go, pasture. Bereshit 29:7


+ 228 And they said, We cannot do that, until all the flocks are gathered together, and they will roll the rock off the mouth of the well, and we shall then water the sheep. Bereshit 29:8


+ 178 While he was still talking with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep, for she was a shepherdess. Bereshit 29:9


+ 223 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel, the daughter of Laban, his mother's brother and the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother, that Jacob drew near and rolled the rock off the mouth of the well, and he watered the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother. Bereshit 29:10


+ 203 And Jacob kissed Rachel, and he raised his voice and wept. Bereshit 29:11


+ 187 And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's kinsman and that he was Rebecca's son, and she ran and told her father. Bereshit 29:12


+ 199 Now it came to pass when Laban heard the report of Jacob, his sister's son, that he ran towards him, and he embraced him, and he kissed him, and he brought him into his house. He told Laban all these happenings. Bereshit 29:13


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


+ 215 And Laban said to Jacob, Because you are my kinsman, should you work for me gratis? Tell me what your wages shall be. Bereshit 29:15


+ 188 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Bereshit 29:16


+ 170 Leah's eyes were tender, but Rachel had beautiful features and a beautiful complexion. Bereshit 29:17


+ 224 And Jacob loved Rachel, and he said, I will work for you seven years for Rachel, your younger daughter. Bereshit 29:19


+ 178 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to you than I should give her to another man. Stay with me. Bereshit 29:19


+ 212 So Jacob worked for Rachel seven years, but they appeared to him like a few days because of his love for her. Bereshit 29:20


+ 198 And Jacob said to Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are completed, that I may come to her. Bereshit 29:21


+ 196 So Laban gathered all the people of the place, and he made a feast. Bereshit 29:22


+ 161 And it came to pass in the evening that Laban took his daughter Leah, and he brought her to him, and he came to her. Bereshit 29:23


+ 161 And Laban gave Zilpah his maidservant to his daughter Leah as a maidservant. Bereshit 29:24


+ 208 And it came to pass in the morning, and behold she was Leah! So he said to Laban, What is this that you have done to me? Did I not work with you for Rachel? Why have you deceived me? Bereshit 29:25


+ 165 And Laban said, It is not done so in our place to give the younger one before the firstborn. Bereshit 29:26


+ 187 Complete the wedding week of this one, and we will give you this one too, for the work that you will render me for another seven years. Bereshit 29:27


+ 195 And Jacob did so, and he completed the week of this one, and he gave his daughter Rachel to him as a wife. Bereshit 29:28


+ 174 And Laban gave his daughter Rachel his maidservant Bilhah, for a maidservant. Bereshit 29:29


+ 203 And he came also to Rachel, and he also loved Rachel more than Leah; and he worked with him yet another seven years. Bereshit 29:30


+ 176 And the Lord saw that Leah was hated, so He opened her womb; but Rachel was barren. Bereshit 29:31


+ 223 And Leah conceived and bore a son, and she named him Reuben, for she said, Because the Lord has seen my affliction, for now my husband will love me. Bereshit 29:32


+ 194 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she said, Since the Lord has heard that I am hated, He gave me this one too. So she named him Simeon. Bereshit 29:33


+ 211 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she said, Now this time my husband will be attached to me, for I have borne him three sons; therefore, He named him Levi. Bereshit 29:34


+ 187 And she conceived again and bore a son, and she said, This time, I will thank the Lord! Therefore, she named him Judah, and then she stopped bearing. Bereshit 29:35


+ 211 When Leah saw that she had stopped bearing children, she took her maidservant Zilpah, and gave her to Jacob for a wife. Bereshit 30:9


+ 189 And Leah conceived again, and she bore Jacob a sixth son. Bereshit 30:19


+ 176 And he said to him, You know how I have worked for you and how your livestock was with me. Bereshit 30:29


+ 214 And the flocks came into heat by the rods, and the animals bore ringed, spotted, and striped young. Bereshit 30:39


+ 164 Thus, God separated your father's livestock and gave it to me. Bereshit 31:9


+ 195 Now Laban had gone to shear his sheep, and meanwhile Rachel stole her father's teraphim. Bereshit 31:19


+ 208 I have the power to inflict harm upon you, but the God of your father spoke to me last night, saying, Beware of speaking with Jacob either good or bad. Bereshit 31:29


+ 207 I have not brought home to you anything torn by other animals; I would suffer its loss; from my hand you would demand it, what was stolen by day and what was stolen at night. Bereshit 31:39


+ 144 And Mizpah, because he said, May the Lord look between me and you when we are hidden from each other. Bereshit 31:49


+ 166 And he said, If Esau comes to one camp and strikes it down, the remaining camp will escape. Bereshit 32:9


+ 221 You shall say, I belong to your servant Jacob; it is a gift sent to my master, to Esau, and behold, he himself is behind us. Bereshit 32:19


+ 220 And he said, Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, because you have commanding power with an angel of God and with men, and you have prevailed. Bereshit 32:29


+ 155 But Esau said, I have plenty, my brother; let what you have remain yours. Bereshit 33:9


+ 157 And he bought the part of the field where he had pitched his tent from the sons of Hamor, the father of Shechem, for a hundred kesitas. Bereshit 33:19


+ 167 And intermarry with us; you shall give us your daughters, and you shall take our daughters for yourselves. Bereshit 34:9


+ 185 And the young man did not delay to do the thing because he desired Jacob's daughter, and he was the most honored in all his father's household. Bereshit 34:19


+ 158 And all their wealth and all their infants and their wives they captured and plundered, and all that was in the house. Bereshit 34:29


+ 189 And God appeared again to Jacob when he came from Padan aram, and He blessed him. Bereshit 35:9


+ 147 So Rachel died, and she was buried on the road to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem. Bereshit 35:19


+ 193 And Isaac expired and died and was gathered in to his peoples, old and sated with days, and his sons, Esau and Jacob, buried him. Bereshit 35:29


+ 136 And these are the generations of Esau the progenitor of Edom, on Mount Seir. Bereshit 36:9


+ 132 These are the sons of Esau and these are their chieftains, he is Edom. Bereshit 36:19


+ 140 These are the chieftains of the Horites: Chief Lotan, Chief Shobal, Chief Zibeon, Chief Anah, Bereshit 36:29


+ 165 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


+ 185 And he again dreamed another dream, and he related it to his brothers, and he said, Behold, I have dreamed another dream, and behold, the sun, the moon, and eleven stars were prostrating themselves to me. Bereshit 37:9


+ 148 So they said one to the other, Behold, that dreamer is coming. Bereshit 37:19


+ 148 And Reuben returned to the pit, and behold, Joseph was not in the pit; so he rent his garments. Bereshit 37:29


+ 168 Now Onan knew that the progeny would not be his, and it came about, when he came to his brother's wife, he wasted his semen on the ground, in order not to give seed to his brother. Bereshit 38:9


+ 155 Then she arose and went away, and she took off her veil, and she donned her widow's garb. Bereshit 38:19


+ 181 And it came about, as he was drawing back his hand, behold, his brother emerged, and she said, With what strength you have strengthened yourself! And he named him Perez. Bereshit 38:29


+ 160 Now Joseph had been brought down to Egypt, and Potiphar, Pharaoh's chamberlain, chief of the slaughterers, an Egyptian man, purchased him from the Ishmaelites who had brought him down there. Bereshit 39:1


+ 160 The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master. Bereshit 39:2


+ 154 And his master saw that the Lord was with him, and whatever he did the Lord made prosper in his hand. Bereshit 39:3


+ 168 And Joseph found favor in his eyes, and he served him, and he (Potiphar) appointed him over his house, and all he had he gave into his hand. Bereshit 39:4


+ 178 Now it came to pass that since he had appointed him over his house and over all that he had, the Lord blessed the house of the Egyptian for Joseph's sake, and the blessing of the Lord was in all that he had, in the house and in the field. Bereshit 39:5


+ 169 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


+ 174 Now it came to pass after these events that his master's wife lifted up her eyes to Joseph, and she said, Lie with me. Bereshit 39:7


+ 177 But he refused, and he said to his master's wife, Behold, with me my master knows nothing about anything in the house, and all he has he has given into my hand. Bereshit 39:8


+ 180 In this house, there is no one greater than I, and he has not withheld anything from me except you, insofar as you are his wife. Now how can I commit this great evil, and sin against God? Bereshit 39:9


+ 160 Now it came about when she spoke to Joseph day in and day out, that he did not obey her, to lie beside her and to be with her. Bereshit 39:10


+ 173 And it came about on a certain day, that he came to the house to do his work, and none of the people of the house were there in the house. Bereshit 39:11


+ 157 So she grabbed him by his garment, saying, Lie with me! But he left his garment in her hand and fled and went outside. Bereshit 39:12


+ 138 Now it happened, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand and had fled outside, Bereshit 39:13


+ 148 That she called to the people of her house, and she spoke to them, saying, Look! He brought us a Hebrew man to mock us. He came to me to lie with me, but I called loudly. Bereshit 39:14


+ 165 And it happened that when he heard that I raised my voice and called out, he left his garment beside me, and he fled and went outside. Bereshit 39:15


+ 149 So she left his garment beside her, until his master came home. Bereshit 39:16


+ 150 And she told him the same thing, saying, "The Hebrew slave that you brought to us came to me to mock me. Bereshit 39:17


+ 150 And it happened when I raised my voice and called out, that he left his garment beside me and fled outside." Bereshit 39:18


+ 175 Now it came about when his master heard his wife's report that she spoke to him, saying, "Your slave did such things to me," that his wrath burned. Bereshit 39:19


+ 160 So Joseph's master took him and put him into prison, the place where the king's prisoners were imprisoned, and he was there in the prison. Bereshit 39:20


+ 167 The Lord was with Joseph, and He extended charisma to him, and He gave him favor in the eyes of the warden of the prison. Bereshit 39:21


+ 199 So the warden of the prison delivered all the prisoners who were in the prison into Joseph's hand, and whatever they did there, he was the one who did it. Bereshit 39:22


+ 159 The warden of the prison did not inspect anything that was in his (Joseph's) hand, for the Lord was with him, and whatever he did the Lord made prosper. Bereshit 39:23


+ 150 So the chief cupbearer related his dream to Joseph, and he said to him, "In my dream, behold, a vine is before me. Bereshit 40:9


+ 187 In another three days, Pharaoh will remove your head from you and hang you on a gallows, and the birds will eat your flesh off you. Bereshit 40:19


+ 151 Now the chief cupbearer spoke with Pharaoh, saying, I call to mind my faults today. Bereshit 41:9


+ 190 And behold, seven other cows were ascending after them, emaciated and of very ugly form and with meager flesh; I have not seen such ugly ones throughout the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:19


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


+ 172 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, Since God has let you know all this, there is no one as understanding and wise as you. Bereshit 41:39


+ 167 And Joseph gathered grain like the sand of the sea, in great abundance, until one stopped counting, because there was no number. Bereshit 41:49


+ 152 And Joseph remembered the dreams that he had dreamed about them, and he said to them, "You are spies; you have come to see the nakedness of the land." Bereshit 42:9


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


+ 183 And they came to Jacob their father, to the land of Canaan, and they told him all that had befallen them, saying, Bereshit 42:29


+ 150 I will guarantee him; from my hand you can demand him. If I do not bring him to you and stand him up before you, I will have sinned against you forever. Bereshit 43:9


+ 148 So they drew near the man who was over Joseph's house, and they spoke to him at the entrance of the house. Bereshit 43:19


+ 174 And he lifted his eyes and saw Benjamin, his brother, the son of his mother, and he said, Is this your little brother, whom you told me about? And he said, May God favor you, my son. Bereshit 43:29


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


+ 142 My lord asked his servants, saying, 'Have you a father or a brother?' Bereshit 44:19


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


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

+ 195 When the time drew near for Israel to die, he called his son Joseph and said to him, "If I have now found favor in your eyes, now place your hand beneath my thigh, and you shall deal with me with lovingkindness and truth; do not bury me now in Egypt. Bereshit 47:29


+ 162 Joseph said to his father, "They are my sons, whom God gave me here." So he said, "Now bring them near to me, so that I may bless them." Bereshit 48:9

+ 172 The Lord said to Moses in Midian, Go, return to Egypt, for all the people who sought your life have died. Shemot 4:19


+ 152 So Moses and Aaron went, and they assembled all the elders of the children of Israel. Shemot 4:29


+ 135 Let the labor fall heavy upon the men and let them work at it, and let them not talk about false matters. Shemot 5:9


+ 162 The officers of the children of Israel saw them in distress, saying, Do not reduce the number of your bricks, the requirement of each day in its day. Shemot 5:19


+ 143 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


+ 147 And the sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi; these are the families of the Levites according to their generations. Shemot 6:19


+ 129 That the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, I am the Lord. Speak to Pharaoh everything that I speak to you. Shemot 6:29


+ 166 When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, Provide a sign for yourselves, you shall say to Aaron, Take your staff, and cast it before Pharaoh; it will become a serpent. Shemot 7:9


+ 176 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Take your staff and stretch forth your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, over their canals, over their ponds, and over all their bodies of water, and they will become blood, and there will be blood throughout the entire land of Egypt, even in wood and in stone. Shemot 7:19


+ 145 And into you and into your people and into all your servants, the frogs will ascend. Shemot 7:29


+ 144 And the Lord did according to Moses' word, and the frogs died from the houses, from the courtyards, and from the fields. Shemot 8:9


+ 146 And I will make a redemption between My people and your people; this sign will come about tomorrow." ' " Shemot 8:19


+ 170 The Lord said to Moses, Come to Pharaoh and speak to him, 'So said the Lord, God of the Hebrews, Let My people go, that they may serve Me. Shemot 9:1


+ 158 For if you refuse to let them go, and you still hold on to them, Shemot 9:2


+ 168 Behold, the hand of the Lord will be upon your livestock that is in the field, upon the horses, upon the donkeys, upon the camels, upon the cattle, and upon the sheep, a very severe pestilence. Shemot 9:3


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


+ 134 The Lord set an appointed time, saying, "Tomorrow, God will do this thing in the land." Shemot 9:5


+ 151 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


+ 161 And Pharaoh sent, and behold, not even one of the livestock of Israel died, but Pharaoh's heart became hardened, and he did not let the people out. Shemot 9:7


+ 160 The Lord said to Moses and to Aaron, "Take yourselves handfuls of furnace soot, and Moses shall cast it heavenward before Pharaoh's eyes. Shemot 9:8


+ 136 And it will become dust upon the entire land of Egypt, and it will become boils, breaking out into blisters upon man and upon beast throughout the entire land of Egypt." Shemot 9:9


+ 157 So they took furnace soot, and they stood before Pharaoh, and Moses cast it heavenward, and it became boils breaking out into blisters upon man and upon beast. Shemot 9:10


+ 148 And the necromancers could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were upon the necromancers and upon all Egypt. Shemot 9:11


+ 153 But the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord spoke to Moses. Shemot 9:12


+ 164 The Lord said to Moses, Rise early in the morning and stand erect before Pharaoh, and say to him, So said the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, Let My people go so that they may worship Me. Shemot 9:13


+ 189 Because this time, I am sending all My plagues into your heart and into your servants and into your people, in order that you know that there is none like Me in the entire earth. Shemot 9:14


+ 177 For if now I had stretched forth My hand, and I had smitten you and your people with pestilence, you would have been annihilated from the earth. Shemot 9:15


+ 156 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


+ 150 If you still tread upon My people, not letting them out, Shemot 9:17


+ 158 Behold, I am going to rain down at this time tomorrow a very heavy hail, the likes of which has never been in Egypt from the day of its being founded until now. Shemot 9:18


+ 200 And now, send, gather in your livestock and all that you have in the field, any man or beast that is found in the field and not brought into the house the hail shall fall on them, and they will die. Shemot 9:19


+ 149 He who feared the word of the Lord of Pharaoh's servants drove his servants and his livestock into the houses. Shemot 9:20


+ 144 But he who did not pay attention to the word of the Lord left his servants and his livestock in the field. Shemot 9:21


+ 177 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand heavenward, and hail will be upon the entire land of Egypt, upon man and upon beast and upon all the vegetation of the field in the land of Egypt. Shemot 9:22


+ 153 So Moses stretched forth his staff heavenward, and the Lord gave forth thunder and hail, and fire came down to the earth, and the Lord rained down hail upon the land of Egypt. Shemot 9:23


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


+ 146 The hail struck throughout the entire land of Egypt, all that was in the field, both man and beast, and the hail struck all the vegetation of the field, and it broke all the trees of the field. Shemot 9:25


+ 148 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail. Shemot 9:26


+ 186 So Pharaoh sent and summoned Moses and Aaron and said to them, I have sinned this time. The Lord is the righteous One, and I and my people are the guilty ones. Shemot 9:27


+ 128 Entreat the Lord, and let it be enough of God's thunder and hail, and I will let you go, and you shall not continue to stand. Shemot 9:28


+ 170 And Moses said to him, When I leave the city, I will spread my hands to the Lord. The thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, in order that you know that the land is the Lord's. Shemot 9:29


+ 159 But you and your servants I know that you still do not fear the Lord God, Shemot 9:30


+ 134 Though the flax and the barley have been broken, for the barley is in the ear, and the flax is in the stalk. Shemot 9:31


+ 146 The wheat and the spelt, however, have not been broken because they ripen late. Shemot 9:32


+ 170 Moses went away from Pharaoh, out of the city, and he spread out his hands to the Lord, and the thunder and the hail ceased, and rain did not come down to earth. Shemot 9:33


+ 129 And Pharaoh saw that the rain, the hail, and the thunder had ceased; so he continued to sin, and he strengthened his heart, he and his servants. Shemot 9:34


+ 161 And Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he did not let the children of Israel go out, as the Lord had spoken through the hand of Moses. Shemot 9:35


+ 166 Moses said, With our youth and with our elders we will go, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our cattle we will go, for it is a festival of the Lord to us. Shemot 10:9


+ 161 And the Lord reversed a very strong west wind, and it picked up the locusts and thrust them into the Red Sea. Not one locust remained within all the borders of Egypt. Shemot 10:19


+ 162 Thereupon, Moses said, You have spoken correctly; I shall no longer see your face. Shemot 10:29


+ 149 The Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh will not heed you, in order to increase My miracles in the land of Egypt. Shemot 11:9


+ 145 You shall not eat it rare or boiled in water, except roasted over the fire its head with its legs and with its innards. Shemot 12:9


+ 171 For seven days, leavening shall not be found in your houses, for whoever eats leavening that soul shall be cut off from the community of Israel, both among the strangers and the native born of the land. Shemot 12:19


+ 146 It came to pass at midnight, and the Lord smote every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who is in the dungeon, and every firstborn animal. Shemot 12:29


+ 144 They baked the dough that they had taken out of Egypt as unleavened cakes, for it had not leavened, for they were driven out of Egypt, and they could not tarry, and also, they had not made provisions for themselves. Shemot 12:39


+ 124 There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who resides in your midst." Shemot 12:49


+ 139 And it shall be to you as a sign upon your hand and as a remembrance between your eyes, in order that the law of the Lord shall be in your mouth, for with a mighty hand the Lord took you out of Egypt. Shemot 13:9


+ 185 Moses took Joseph's bones with him, for he had adjured the sons of Israel, saying, God will surely remember you, and you shall bring up my bones from here with you. Shemot 13:19


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


+ 163 Then the angel of God, who had been going in front of the Israelite camp, moved and went behind them, and the pillar of cloud moved away from in front of them and stood behind them. Shemot 14:19


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


+ 160 Because the enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will share the booty; my desire will be filled from them; I will draw my sword, my hand will impoverish them. Shemot 15:9


+ 167 When Pharaoh's horses came with his chariots and his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought the waters of the sea back upon them, and the children of Israel walked on dry land in the midst of the sea, Shemot 15:19


+ 159 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


+ 118 And Moses said to them, Let no one leave over any of it until morning. Shemot 16:19


+ 156 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


+ 156 So Moses said to Joshua, Pick men for us, and go out and fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand. Shemot 17:9


+ 145 Jethro was happy about all the good that the Lord had done for Israel, that He had rescued them from the hands of the Egyptians. Shemot 18:9


+ 135 Now listen to me. I will advise you, and may the Lord be with you. You represent the people before God, and you shall bring the matters to God. Shemot 18:19


+ 145 In the third month of the children of Israel's departure from Egypt, on this day they arrived in the desert of Sinai. Shemot 19:1


+ 157 They journeyed from Rephidim, and they arrived in the desert of Sinai, and they encamped in the desert, and Israel encamped there opposite the mountain. Shemot 19:2


+ 176 Moses ascended to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, So shall you say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel, Shemot 19:3


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


+ 141 And now, if you obey Me and keep My covenant, you shall be to Me a treasure out of all peoples, for Mine is the entire earth. Shemot 19:5


+ 137 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


+ 152 Moses came and summoned the elders of Israel and placed before them all these words that the Lord had commanded him. Shemot 19:7


+ 167 And all the people replied in unison and said, All that the Lord has spoken we shall do! and Moses took the words of the people back to the Lord. Shemot 19:8


+ 137 And the Lord said to Moses, Behold, I am coming to you in the thickness of the cloud, in order that the people hear when I speak to you, and they will also believe in you forever. And Moses relayed the words of the people to the Lord. Shemot 19:9


+ 148 And the Lord said to Moses, Go to the people and prepare them today and tomorrow, and they shall wash their garments. Shemot 19:10


+ 124 And they shall be prepared for the third day, for on the third day, the Lord will descend before the eyes of all the people upon Mount Sinai. Shemot 19:11


+ 143 And you shall set boundaries for the people around, saying, Beware of ascending the mountain or touching its edge; whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death. Shemot 19:12


+ 162 No hand shall touch it, for he shall be stoned or cast down; whether man or beast, he shall not live. When the ram's horn sounds a long, drawn out blast, they may ascend the mountain. Shemot 19:13


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


+ 135 He said to the people, Be ready for three days; do not go near a woman. Shemot 19:15


+ 144 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


+ 140 Moses brought the people out toward God from the camp, and they stood at the bottom of the mountain. Shemot 19:17


+ 146 And the entire Mount Sinai smoked because the Lord had descended upon it in fire, and its smoke ascended like the smoke of the kiln, and the entire mountain quaked violently. Shemot 19:18


+ 149 The sound of the shofar grew increasingly stronger; Moses would speak and God would answer him with a voice. Shemot 19:19


+ 134 The Lord descended upon Mount Sinai, to the peak of the mountain, and the Lord summoned Moses to the peak of the mountain, and Moses ascended. Shemot 19:20


+ 150 The Lord said to Moses, Go down, warn the people lest they break their formation to go nearer to the Lord, and many of them will fall. Shemot 19:21


+ 147 And also, the priests who go near to the Lord shall prepare themselves, lest the Lord wreak destruction upon them. Shemot 19:22


+ 165 And Moses said to the Lord, The people cannot ascend to Mount Sinai, for You warned us saying, Set boundaries for the mountain and sanctify it. Shemot 19:23


+ 165 But the Lord said to him, Go, descend, and then you shall ascend, and Aaron with you, but the priests and the populace shall not break their formation to ascend to the Lord, lest He wreak destruction upon them. Shemot 19:24


+ 127 So Moses went down to the people and said this to them. Shemot 19:25


+ 134 Six days may you work and perform all your labor, Shemot 20:9


+ 197 The Lord said to Moses, So shall you say to the children of Israel, You have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you. Shemot 20:19


+ 132 And if he designates her for his son, he shall deal with her according to the law of the daughters of Israel. Shemot 21:9


+ 142 If he gets up and walks about outside on his support, the assailant shall be cleared; he shall give only payment for his enforced idleness, and he shall provide for his cure. Shemot 21:19


+ 133 But if it is a habitually goring bull since yesterday and the day before yesterday, and its owner had been warned, but he did not guard it, and it puts to death a man or a woman, the bull shall be stoned, and also its owner shall be put to death, Shemot 21:29


+ 136 If a man gives his neighbor a donkey, a bull, a lamb, or any animal for safekeeping, and it dies, breaks a limb, or is captured, and no one sees it, Shemot 22:9


+ 141 He who slaughters a sacrifice to the gods shall be destroyed, except to the Lord alone. Shemot 22:19


+ 125 So shall you do with your cattle and with your sheep: seven days it shall be with its mother, on the eighth day you may give it to Me. Shemot 22:29


+ 134 And you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the feelings of the stranger, since you were strangers in the land of Egypt. Shemot 23:9


+ 150 The choicest of the first fruits of your soil you shall bring to the house of the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Shemot 23:19


+ 139 I will not drive them away from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field outnumber you. Shemot 23:29


+ 140 And Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel ascended, Shemot 24:9


+ 130 According to all that I show you, the pattern of the Mishkan and the pattern of all its vessels; and so shall you do. Shemot 25:9


+ 131 And make one cherub from the one end and the other cherub from the other end; from the ark cover you shall make the cherubim on its two ends. Shemot 25:19


+ 150 And you shall make its forms, its spoons, its half pipes, and its supports with which it will be covered; of pure gold you shall make them. Shemot 25:29


+ 123 He shall make it of a talent of pure gold, with all these implements. Shemot 25:39


+ 123 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


+ 137 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


+ 165 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


+ 163 And you shall make the courtyard of the Mishkan on the southern side there shall be hangings for the courtyard of twisted fine linen, one hundred cubits long on one side. Shemot 27:9


+ 141 All the implements of the Mishkan for all its labor, and all its pegs and all the pegs of the courtyard shall be copper. Shemot 27:19


+ 146 And you shall take two shoham stones and engrave upon them the names of the sons of Israel. Shemot 28:9


+ 141 The third row: leshem, shevo, and achlamah. Shemot 28:19


+ 138 Thus shall Aaron carry the names of the sons of Israel in the choshen of judgment over his heart when he enters the Holy, as a remembrance before the Lord at all times. Shemot 28:29


+ 132 You shall make the linen tunic of checker work, and you shall make a linen cap; and you shall make a sash of embroidery work. Shemot 28:39


+ 115 And this is the thing that you shall do for them to sanctify them to serve Me as kohanim: take one young bull and two rams, perfect ones. Shemot 29:1


+ 150 And unleavened bread and unleavened loaves mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil; you shall make them out of fine wheat flour. Shemot 29:2


+ 126 And you shall place them upon a basket, and you shall bring them in the basket, and the bull and the two rams. Shemot 29:3


+ 153 And you shall bring Aaron and his sons near the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and you shall bathe them in water. Shemot 29:4


+ 128 And you shall take the garments and clothe Aaron with the tunic, with the robe of the ephod, with the ephod, and with the choshen, and you shall adorn him with the band of the ephod. Shemot 29:5


+ 125 You shall place the cap upon his head and place the holy crown upon the cap. Shemot 29:6


+ 124 You shall take the anointing oil and pour it on his head and anoint him. Shemot 29:7


+ 123 And you shall bring his sons near, and you shall clothe them with tunics. Shemot 29:8


+ 151 And you shall gird them with sashes, Aaron and his sons, and you shall dress them with high hats, and the kehunah will be a perpetual statute for them, and you shall invest Aaron and his sons with full authority. Shemot 29:9


+ 129 You shall bring the bull to the front of the Tent of Meeting, and Aaron and his sons shall lean their hands upon the head of the bull. Shemot 29:10


+ 126 You shall then slaughter the bull before the Lord, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 29:11


+ 132 And you shall take some of the blood of the bull and apply it on the horns of the altar with your finger, and you shall pour out all the blood upon the base of the altar. Shemot 29:12


+ 136 You shall then take all the fat that covers the innards, and the diaphragm with the liver, also the two kidneys and the fat that is upon them, and make them go up in smoke upon the altar. Shemot 29:13


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


+ 122 And you shall take the one ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lean their hands upon the ram's head. Shemot 29:15


+ 130 You shall slaughter the ram, and you shall take its blood and sprinkle it on the altar all around. Shemot 29:16


+ 124 And you shall dissect the ram into its parts, and you shall wash its innards and its legs and put them with its parts and with its head, Shemot 29:17


+ 154 And you shall make the entire ram go up in smoke upon the altar; it is a burnt offering made to the Lord; it is a spirit of satisfaction, a fire offering for the Lord. Shemot 29:18


+ 135 And you shall take the second ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lean their hands upon the ram's head. Shemot 29:19


+ 148 You shall slaughter the ram, take some of its blood and put it upon the cartilage of Aaron's right ear and upon the cartilage of Aaron's sons' right ears, upon the thumbs of their right hands, and upon the big toes of their right feet, and you shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar all around. Shemot 29:21


+ 142 You shall then take some of the blood that is upon the altar and some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron and upon his garments, upon his sons and upon the garments of his sons with him; thus he will become holy along with his garments, and his sons and their garments with him. Shemot 29:22


+ 151 And you shall take out of the ram the fat and the fat tail and the fat that covers the innards, the diaphragm of the liver, the two kidneys along with the fat that is upon them, and the right thigh, for it is a ram of perfection. Shemot 29:22


+ 122 And one loaf of bread, one loaf of oil bread, and one wafer from the basket of matzoth that stands before the Lord, Shemot 29:23


+ 131 And you shall place it all upon Aaron's palms and upon his sons' palms, and you shall wave them as a waving before the Lord. Shemot 29:24


+ 138 You shall then take them from their hands and make them go up in smoke upon the altar with the burnt offering as a spirit of satisfaction before the Lord; it is a fire offering for the Lord. Shemot 29:25


+ 132 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


+ 157 And you shall sanctify the breast of the waving and the thigh of the uplifting, which was waved and which was lifted up, of the ram of perfection, of that which is Aaron's and of that which is his sons. Shemot 29:27


+ 160 And so it shall remain for Aaron and his sons as a perpetual allotment from the children of Israel; for it is an offering, and it shall remain an offering from the children of Israel of their peace offerings; it is their offering to the Lord. Shemot 29:28


+ 132 The holy garments that are Aaron's shall be for his sons after him, to be exalted through them and invested with full authority through them. Shemot 29:29


+ 133 Seven days shall the one of his sons who will be the kohen in his place wear them, the one who is to enter the Tent of Meeting to serve in the Holy. Shemot 29:30


+ 115 You shall take the ram of perfection and cook its flesh in a holy place. Shemot 29:31


+ 133 Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram and the bread that is in the basket, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 29:32


+ 140 They shall eat those things with which atonement has been effected, in order to invest them with full authority, to sanctify them, but a stranger shall not eat of them, because they are a sacred thing. Shemot 29:33


+ 148 If any of the flesh of the perfection offering or of the bread is left over until the next morning, what is left over you shall burn in fire; it shall not be eaten because it is a sacred thing. Shemot 29:34


+ 148 So shall you do to Aaron and his sons, according to all that I have commanded you; for seven days you shall perform their investiture. Shemot 29:35


+ 139 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


+ 150 For seven days you shall perform atonement upon the altar and sanctify it. Henceforth, the altar shall be a holy of holies. Whatever touches the altar will be holy. Shemot 29:37


+ 137 And this is what you shall offer upon the altar: lambs in their first year, two a day, continually. Shemot 29:38


+ 110 The one lamb you shall offer up in the morning and the other lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon. Shemot 29:39


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


+ 165 And the other lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon; you shall offer it up like the meal offering of the morning and its libation, as a spirit of satisfaction, a fire offering to the Lord. Shemot 29:41


+ 153 It shall be a continual burnt offering for your generations, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting before the Lord, where I will arrange meetings with you, to speak to you there. Shemot 29:42


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


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


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


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


+ 121 You shall offer up on it no alien incense, burnt offering, or meal offering, and you shall pour no libation upon it. Shemot 30:9


+ 112 Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and feet from it. Shemot 30:19


+ 100 And you shall sanctify them so that they become a holy of holies; whatever touches them shall become holy. Shemot 30:29


+ 111 The altar for the burnt offering and all its implements, the washstand and its base, Shemot 31:9


+ 137 And the Lord said to Moses: I have seen this people and behold! they are a stiff necked people. Shemot 32:9


+ 146 Now it came to pass when he drew closer to the camp and saw the calf and the dances, that Moses anger was kindled, and he flung the tablets from his hands, shattering them at the foot of the mountain. Shemot 32:19


+ 155 And Moses said: Initiate yourselves today for the Lord for each man with his son and with his brother so that He may bestow a blessing upon you this day. Shemot 32:29


+ 110 And it would be that when Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the entrance of the tent, and He would speak with Moses. Shemot 33:9


+ 115 He said: I will let all My goodness pass before you; I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you, and I will favor when I wish to favor, and I will have compassion when I wish to have compassion. Shemot 33:19


+ 111 And said: If I have now found favor in Your eyes, O Lord, let the Lord go now in our midst even if they are a stiff necked people, and You shall forgive our iniquity and our sin and thus secure us as Your possession. Shemot 34:9


+ 129 All that opens the womb is Mine, and all your livestock that bears a male, by the emergence of ox or lamb. Shemot 34:19


+ 146 And it came to pass when Moses descended from Mount Sinai, and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses' hand when he descended from the mountain and Moses did not know that the skin of his face had become radiant while He had spoken with him. Shemot 34:29


+ 96 And shoham stones and filling stones for the ephod and for the choshen. Shemot 35:9


+ 108 The meshwork garments to serve in the Holy, the holy garments for Aaron the Kohen Gadol, and the garments of his sons in which to serve as kohanim. Shemot 35:19


+ 106 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


+ 91 And he made a covering for the tent, of ram skins dyed red and a covering of tachash skins above. Shemot 36:19


+ 111 And they were matched evenly from below, and together they matched at its top, to be put into the one ring; so did he make for both of them; for the two corners. Shemot 36:29


+ 118 The cherubim had their wings spread upwards, shielding the ark cover with their wings, with their faces toward one another; turned toward the ark cover were the faces of the cherubim. Shemot 37:9


+ 108 Three decorated goblets on one branch, a knob and a flower, and three decorated goblets on one branch, a knob and a flower; so for the six branches that come out of the menorah. Shemot 37:19


+ 96 And he made the holy anointing oil and the pure incense after the art of a perfumer. Shemot 37:29


+ 93 And he made the courtyard on the southern side there were hangings for the courtyard of twisted fine linen, one hundred cubits. Shemot 38:9


+ 107 And their pillars were four and their sockets four, of copper, their hooks silver, and the overlay of their tops and their bands were silver. Shemot 38:19


+ 102 And out of the one thousand seven hundred and seventy five shekels he made hooks for the pillars, and he covered their tops and banded them. Shemot 38:29


+ 90 The copper of the waving was seventy talents and two thousand four hundred shekels. Shemot 38:29


+ 122 And out of the blue, purple, and crimson wool they made the meshwork garments to serve in the Holy, and they made Aaron's holy garments, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:1


+ 90 And he made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen. Shemot 39:2


+ 93 And he made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen. Shemot 39:3


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


+ 129 And its decorative band, which is above it, emanated from it, of the same work: gold, blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:5


+ 142 And they prepared the shoham stones, enclosed in gold settings, engraved similar to the engravings of a seal, with the names of the sons of Israel. Shemot 39:6


+ 135 And he put them upon the shoulder straps of the ephod as stones of remembrance for the sons of Israel, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:7


+ 112 He made the choshen, the work of a master weaver like the work of the ephod, of gold, blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen. Shemot 39:8


+ 89 It was square and they made the choshen doubled its length one span and its width one span, doubled. Shemot 39:9


+ 107 And they filled into it four rows of stones. One row: odem, pitdah, and bareketh, the one row. Shemot 39:10


+ 80 And the second row: nofech, sappir, and yahalom. Shemot 39:11


+ 94 And the third row: leshem, shevo, and achlamah. Shemot 39:12


+ 126 And the fourth row: tarshish, shoham, and yashpheh; enclosed in gold settings in their fillings. Shemot 39:13


+ 139 And the stones were for the names of the sons of Israel twelve, corresponding to their names; similar to the engravings of a seal, every one according to his name, for the twelve tribes. Shemot 39:14


+ 109 For the choshen they made chains at the edges, of cable work, of pure gold. Shemot 39:15


+ 100 They made two golden settings and two golden rings, and they placed the two rings on the two ends of the choshen. Shemot 39:16


+ 96 And they placed the two golden cables on the two rings, at the ends of the choshen. Shemot 39:17


+ 118 And the two ends of the two cables they placed upon the two settings, and they placed them upon the shoulder straps of the ephod, on its front part. Shemot 39:18


+ 100 And they made two golden rings and placed them on the two ends of the choshen, on its edge that faced the inner side of the ephod. Shemot 39:19


+ 140 And they made two golden rings and placed them on the two shoulder straps of the ephod, from below, toward its front, adjacent to its seam, above the band of the ephod. Shemot 39:20


+ 117 And they fastened the choshen by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a cord of blue wool, so that it could be upon the band of the ephod, so that the choshen would not move off the ephod, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:21


+ 93 And he made the robe of the ephod, the work of a weaver, completely of blue wool. Shemot 39:22


+ 110 And the opening of the robe was turned inward like the opening of a coat of armor; its opening had a border around it so that it should not be torn. Shemot 39:23


+ 108 And they made on the bottom hem of the robe pomegranates of blue, purple, and crimson wool, twisted. Shemot 39:24


+ 112 And they made bells of pure gold, and they placed the bells in the midst of the pomegranates all around on the bottom hem of the robe, in the midst of the pomegranates. Shemot 39:25


+ 111 A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, all around on the bottom hem of the robe, to serve as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:26

+ 122 And the sash of twisted fine linen, and blue, purple, and crimson wool, of embroidery work as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:29


+ 130 And they made the showplate, the holy crown, of pure gold, and they inscribed upon it an inscription like the engravings of a seal: "Holy to the Lord." Shemot 39:30


+ 120 And they placed upon it a cord of blue wool to place over the cap, from above as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 39:31


+ 144 All the work of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting was completed; the children of Israel had done it; according to all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so they had done. Shemot 39:32


+ 127 Now they brought the Mishkan to Moses, the tent and all its furnishings its clasps, its planks, its bars, its pillars and its sockets, Shemot 39:33

+ 131 In accordance with all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel do all the work. Shemot 39:42


+ 89 You shall take the anointing oil and anoint the Mishkan and everything within it, and you shall sanctify it and all its furnishings; thus it will become a holy thing. Shemot 40:9


+ 111 He spread the tent over the Mishkan, and he placed the cover of the tent over it from above, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:19


+ 118 The altar of the burnt offering he placed in front of the entrance of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting, and he offered up the burnt offering and the meal offering upon it as the Lord had commanded Moses. Shemot 40:29


+ 160 And its innards and its legs, he shall wash with water. Then, the kohen shall cause to go up in smoke all of the animal on the altar, as a burnt offering, a fire offering, with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 1:9


+ 155 And the kohen shall lift out, from the meal offering, its reminder and cause it to go up in smoke on the altar; it is a fire offering with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 2:9


+ 153 And from the peace offering, he shall bring a fire offering to the Lord comprised of its choicest part the complete tail, which he shall remove opposite the kidneys, and the fat covering the innards and all the fat which is on the innards, Vayikra 3:9


+ 122 And the two kidneys along with the fat that is on them, which is on the flanks; and the diaphragm with the liver, along with the kidneys, he shall remove it, Vayikra 4:9


+ 103 And he shall separate all its fat from it and cause it to go up in smoke on the altar. Vayikra 4:19


+ 117 And he shall lean his hand forcefully on the head of the sin offering, and he shall slaughter the sin offering in the place of the burnt offering. Vayikra 4:29


+ 100 He shall sprinkle from the blood of the sin offering on the wall of the altar, and the remainder of the blood shall be pressed out onto the base of the altar. It is a sin offering. Vayikra 5:9


+ 103 It is a guilt offering he has incurred guilt before the Lord. Vayikra 5:19


+ 128 And Aaron and his sons shall eat whatever is left over from it. It shall be eaten as unleavened bread in a holy place; they shall eat it in the courtyard of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 6:9


+ 126 The kohen who offers it up as a sin offering shall eat it; it shall be eaten in a holy place, in the courtyard of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 6:19


+ 126 And any meal offering baked in an oven, and any one made in a deep pan or in a shallow pan, belongs to the kohen who offers it up; it shall be his. Vayikra 7:9


+ 135 And the flesh that touches anything unclean shall not be eaten. It shall be burned in fire. But regarding the flesh, anyone who is clean may eat the flesh. Vayikra 7:19


+ 123 Speak to the Children of Israel, saying: Anyone who brings his peace offering to the Lord, shall bring his sacrifice to the Lord from his peace offering. Vayikra 7:29


+ 146 And he placed the cap on his head, and he placed on the cap, towards his face, the golden showplate, the holy crown, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 8:9


+ 111 And he slaughtered it, and Moses dashed the blood on the altar, around. Vayikra 8:19


+ 119 And Moses took the breast and waved it as a waving before the Lord. It belonged to Moses as a portion from the ram of the investitures, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 8:29


+ 124 And it was on the eighth day, that Moses summoned Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel. Vayikra 9:1


+ 116 And he said to Aaron, "Take for yourself a bull calf as a sin offering, and a ram as a burnt offering, both unblemished, and bring them near before the Lord. Vayikra 9:2


+ 135 And to the children of Israel, you shall speak, saying, Take a he goat as a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both in their first year and both unblemished, as a burnt offering, Vayikra 9:3


+ 117 And an ox and a ram as peace offerings, to slaughter before the Lord, and a meal offering mixed with oil, for today the Lord is appearing to you. Vayikra 9:4


+ 110 And they took what Moses had commanded, to the front of the Tent of Meeting, and the entire community approached and stood before the Lord. Vayikra 9:5


+ 120 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


+ 134 And Moses said to Aaron, Approach the altar and perform your sin offering and your burnt offering, atoning for yourself and for the people, and perform the people's sacrifice, atoning for them, as the Lord has commanded. Vayikra 9:7


+ 113 So Aaron approached the altar and slaughtered his sin offering calf. Vayikra 9:8


+ 125 And Aaron's sons brought forward the blood to him, and he dipped his finger into the blood, placing some on the horns of the altar, and he poured the blood at the base of the altar. Vayikra 9:9


+ 134 And the fat, the kidneys, and the diaphragm with the liver from the sin offering, he caused to go up in smoke on the altar, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Vayikra 9:10


+ 102 And he burned the flesh and the hide in fire, outside the camp. Vayikra 9:11


+ 128 And he slaughtered the burnt offering. And Aaron's sons presented the blood to him, and he dashed it on the altar, around. Vayikra 9:12


+ 119 And they presented the burnt offering to him in its prescribed pieces, along with the head. And he caused them to go up in smoke on the altar. Vayikra 9:13


+ 112 And he washed the innards and the legs, and he caused them to go up in smoke on the altar, along with the burnt offering. Vayikra 9:14


+ 128 And he brought forward the people's sacrifice; he took the people's sin offering goat, slaughtered it, and made it a sin offering, like the first one. Vayikra 9:15


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


+ 111 And he brought forward the meal offering, filled his palm with it, and caused it to go up in smoke on the altar, in addition to the morning burnt offering. Vayikra 9:17


+ 122 And he slaughtered the ox and the ram, the people's peace offering, and Aaron's sons presented the blood to him, and he dashed it on the altar, around, Vayikra 9:18


+ 118 And they also presented the fats from the ox and from the ram: the tail, the fatty covering, the kidneys and the diaphragm with the liver. Vayikra 9:19


+ 103 And they placed the fats on top of the breasts, and he caused the fats to go up in smoke on the altar. Vayikra 9:20


+ 137 And Aaron had already waved the breasts and the right thigh as a wave offering before the Lord, as Moses had commanded. Vayikra 9:21


+ 203 And Aaron lifted up his hands towards the people and blessed them. He then descended from preparing the sin offering, the burnt offering, and the peace offering. Vayikra 9:22


+ 124 And Moses and Aaron went into the Tent of Meeting. Then they came out and blessed the people, and the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. Vayikra 9:23


+ 140 And fire went forth from before the Lord and consumed the burnt offering and the fats upon the altar, and all the people saw, sang praises, and fell upon their faces. Vayikra 9:24


+ 127 Do not drink wine that will lead to intoxication, neither you nor your sons with you, when you go into the Tent of Meeting, so that you shall not die. This is an eternal statute for your generations, Vayikra 10:9


+ 128 And Aaron spoke to Moses, "But today, did they offer up their sin offering and their burnt offering before the Lord? But if tragic events like these had befallen me, and if I had eaten a sin offering today, would it have pleased the Lord? Vayikra 10:19


+ 116 Among all creatures that are in the water, you may eat these: Any of the creatures in the water that has fins and scales, those you may eat, whether it lives in the waters, in the seas or in the rivers. Vayikra 11:9


+ 92 The stork, the heron after its species; the hoopoe and the atalef bat?; Vayikra 11:19


+ 146 And this is unclean for you among creeping creatures that creep on the ground: The weasel, the mouse, and the toad after its species; Vayikra 11:29


+ 120 If an animal that you normally eat, dies, one who touches its carcass shall be unclean until evening. Vayikra 11:39


+ 118 If a man has a lesion of tzara'ath, he shall be brought to the kohen. Vayikra 13:9


+ 114 And on the place of the inflammation there is a white se'eith, or a reddish white bahereth, it shall be shown to the kohen. Vayikra 13:19


+ 92 If a man or a woman has a lesion on the head or on the beard area, Vayikra 13:29


+ 92 the kohen shall look, and, behold! there are dim white spots on the skin of their flesh, it is a bohak pigmentation which has spread on the skin. He is clean. 13:39


+ 124 If the lesion on the garment, the leather, the warp or woof threads or on any leather article, is deep green or deep red, it is a lesion of tzara'ath, and it shall be shown to the kohen. Vayikra 13:49


+ 122 This is the law of a lesion of tzara'ath on a woolen or linen garment, warp or woof threads, or any leather article, to render it clean or unclean. Vayikra 13:59


+ 118 And it shall be, on the seventh day, that he shall shave off all his hair: that of his head, his beard, his eyebrows; indeed, all his hair, he shall shave off. He shall then immerse his garments and immerse his flesh in water, thus becoming clean. Vayikra 14:9


+ 124 The kohen shall then perform the service of the sin offering and effect atonement for the person being cleansed of his uncleanness. After this, he shall slaughter the burnt offering. Vayikra 14:19


+ 120 And what is left over from the oil that is in the kohen's palm, he shall place upon the head of the person being cleansed, to effect atonement for him, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:29


+ 103 Then the kohen shall return on the seventh day and look at the house. Now, if the lesion has spread in the walls of the house, Vayikra 14:39


+ 142 To ritually cleanse the house, he shall take two birds, a cedar stick, a strip of crimson wool, and hyssop. Vayikra 14:49


+ 105 Any riding gear upon which the man with the discharge will ride, becomes unclean. Vayikra 15:9


+ 113 If a woman has a discharge, her flesh discharging blood, she shall remain in her state of menstrual separation for seven days, and whoever touches her shall become unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:19


+ 132 And on the eighth day, she shall take for herself two turtle doves or two young doves, and bring them to the kohen, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 15:29


+ 126 And Aaron shall bring the he goat upon which the lot, "For the Lord," came up, and designate it as a sin offering. Vayikra 16:9


+ 127 He shall then sprinkle some of the blood upon it with his index finger seven times, and he shall cleanse it and sanctify it of the defilements of the children of Israel. Vayikra 16:19

+ 128 And we journeyed from Horeb and went through all that great and fearful desert, which you saw, by the way of the mountain of the Amorites, as the Lord, our God, commanded us; and we came up to Kadesh barnea. Devarim 1:19


+ 97 And I said to you, Do not be broken or afraid of them. Devarim 1:29


+ 100 Moreover your little ones, whom you said will be prey, and your children, who on that day did not know good and evil they will go there and I will give it to them, and they will possess it. Devarim 1:39


+ 109 And the Lord said to me, Do not distress the Moabites, and do not provoke them to war, for I will not give you any of their land as an inheritance, because I have given Ar to the children of Lot as an inheritance. Devarim 2:9


+ 101 And when you approach opposite the children of Ammon, neither distress them, nor provoke them, for I will not give you of the land of the children of Ammon as an inheritance, because I have given it to the children of Lot as an inheritance. Devarim 2:19


+ 100 Just as the children of Esau who dwell in Seir, and the Moabites who dwell in Ar, did for me; until I cross the Jordan to the land which the Lord our God is giving us. Devarim 2:29


+ 92 The Sidonians call Hermon Sirion; and the Amorites call it Senir. Devarim 3:9


+ 99 But your wives, your young children, and your cattle for I know that you have much cattle shall dwell in your cities which I have given you, Devarim 3:19


+ 99 And we abided in the valley opposite Beth Peor. Devarim 3:29


+ 106 But beware and watch yourself very well, lest you forget the things that your eyes saw, and lest these things depart from your heart, all the days of your life, and you shall make them known to your children and to your children's children, Devarim 4:9


+ 113 And lest you lift up your eyes to heaven, and see the sun, and the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, which the Lord your God assigned to all peoples under the entire heaven, and be drawn away to prostrate yourselves before them and worship them. Devarim 4:19


+ 102 And from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Devarim 4:29


+ 120 And you shall know this day and consider it in your heart, that the Lord He is God in heaven above, and upon the earth below; there is none else. Devarim 4:39


+ 95 And all the plain across the Jordan eastward as far as the sea of the plain, under the waterfalls of the hill. Devarim 4:49


+ 105 You shall not prostrate yourself before them, nor worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a zealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons, upon the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me. Devarim 5:9


+ 106 The Lord spoke these words to your entire assembly at the mountain out of the midst of the fire, the cloud, and the opaque darkness, with a great voice, which did not cease. And He inscribed them on two stone tablets and gave them to me. Devarim 5:19


+ 96 Keep them to perform [them] as the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside either to the right or to the left. Devarim 5:29


+ 107 And you shall inscribe them upon the doorposts of your house and upon your gates. Devarim 6:9


+ 96 To drive out all your enemies from before you, as the Lord has spoken. Devarim 6:19


+ 105 Know, therefore, that the Lord, your God He is God, the faithful God, Who keeps the covenant and loving kindness with those who love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations. Devarim 7:9


+ 108 The great trials that your eyes saw, the signs, the wonders, the mighty hand, and the outstretched arm with which the Lord, your God, brought you out. So will the Lord, Your God, do to all the peoples you fear. Devarim 7:19


+ 107 A land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, you will lack nothing in it, a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose mountains you will hew copper. Devarim 8:9


+ 94 And it will be, if you forget the Lord your God and follow other gods, and worship them, and prostrate yourself before them, I bear witness against you this day, that you will surely perish. Devarim 8:19


+ 117 Hear, O Israel: Today, you are crossing the Jordan to come in to possess nations greater and stronger than you, great cities, fortified up to the heavens. Devarim 9:1


+ 83 A great and tall people, the children of the 'Anakim, whom you know and of whom you have heard said, "Who can stand against the children of 'Anak?!" Devarim 9:2


+ 109 You shall know this day, that it is the Lord your God Who passes over before you as a consuming fire He will destroy them, and He will subdue them before you; and you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the Lord spoke to you. Devarim 9:3


+ 102 Do not say to yourself, when the Lord, your God, has repelled them from before you, saying, "Because of my righteousness, the Lord has brought me to possess this land," and that because of the wickedness of these nations, the Lord drives them out from before you. Devarim 9:4


+ 110 Not because of your righteousness or because of the honesty of your heart, do you come to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations, the Lord your God drives them out from before you, and in order to establish the matter that the Lord swore to your forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Devarim 9:5


+ 106 You shall know that, not because of your righteousness, the Lord, your God, gives you this land to possess it; for you are a stiffnecked people. Devarim 9:6


+ 115 Remember do not forget, how you angered the Lord, your God, in the desert; from the day that you went out of the land of Egypt, until you came to this place, you have been rebelling against the Lord. Devarim 9:7


+ 91 At Horeb, you angered the Lord, and the Lord was incensed with you to destroy you. Devarim 9:8


+ 109 When I ascended the mountain to receive the stone tablets, the tablets of the covenant which the Lord made with you, I remained on the mountain forty days and forty nights; I neither ate bread nor drank water; Devarim 9:9


+ 107 And the Lord gave me two stone tablets, inscribed by the finger of God, and on them was inscribed according to all the words that the Lord spoke with you on the mountain from the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly. Devarim 9:10


+ 89 And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights, that the Lord gave me two stone tablets, the tablets of the covenant. Devarim 9:11


+ 106 And the Lord said to me, "Arise, descend quickly from here, for your people whom you have brought out of Egypt have become corrupt; they have quickly deviated from the way which I commanded them; they have made for themselves a molten image." Devarim 9:12


+ 105 And the Lord spoke to me further, saying, "I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people. Devarim 9:13


+ 99 Leave Me alone, and I will destroy them and obliterate their name from beneath the heavens, and I will make you into a nation mightier and more numerous than they." Devarim 9:14


+ 110 So I turned and came down from the mountain, and the mountain was burning with fire, and the two tablets of the covenant were on my two hands. Devarim 9:15


+ 123 And I saw, and behold, you had sinned against the Lord, your God; you had made yourselves a molten calf; you had deviated quickly from the way which the Lord had commanded you. Devarim 9:16


+ 103 So I grasped the two tablets, cast them out of my two hands, and shattered them before your eyes. Devarim 9:17


+ 110 And I fell down before the Lord as before, forty days and forty nights; I neither ate bread nor drank water, because of all your sins you had committed, by doing evil in the eyes of the Lord to anger Him. Devarim 9:18


+ 98 For I was frightened of the wrath and the fury that the Lord was angry with you to destroy you, and the Lord hearkened to me also at that time. Devarim 9:19


+ 89 And with Aaron, the Lord was very furious, to destroy him; so I prayed also for Aaron at that time. Devarim 9:20


+ 116 And I took your sin the calf, which you had made, and I burned it with fire, and I crushed it, grinding it well, until it was fine dust, and I cast its dust into the brook that descends from the mountain. Devarim 9:21


+ 93 And at Tav'erah, and at Massah, and at Kivroth Hata'avah, you provoked the Lord to anger. Devarim 9:22


+ 108 And when the Lord sent you from Kadesh Barnea, saying, "Go up and possess the land I have given you," you defied the word of the Lord your God, and you did not believe Him, nor did you obey Him. Devarim 9:23


+ 88 You have been rebelling against the Lord since the day I became acquainted with you. Devarim 9:24


+ 95 So I fell down before the Lord the forty days and the forty nights that I had fallen down; because the Lord had said to destroy you. Devarim 9:25


+ 111 And I prayed to the Lord and said, "O Lord God, do not destroy Your people and Your inheritance, which You have redeemed in Your greatness, and which You have brought out of Egypt with mighty hand. Devarim 9:26


+ 121 Remember your servants, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; do not turn to the stubbornness of this people, to their wickedness, or to their sin. Devarim 9:27


+ 104 Lest [the people of] the land from which you brought us out will say, 'Because of the Lord's inability to bring them to the land about which He spoke to them, and because of His hatred toward them, He has brought them out to slay them in the desert.' Devarim 9:28


+ 105 But they are Your people and Your inheritance, which You brought out with Your great strength and with Your outstretched arm." Devarim 9:29


+ 79 Therefore, Levi has no portion or inheritance with his brothers; the Lord is his inheritance, as the Lord, your God spoke to him. Devarim 10:9


+ 97 You shall love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. Devarim 10:19


+ 114 And in order that you may prolong your days on the land that the Lord swore to your forefathers to give to them and to their seed a land flowing with milk and honey. Devarim 11:9


+ 120 And you shall teach them to your sons to speak with them, when you sit in your house and when you walk on the way and when you lie down and when you rise. Devarim 11:19


+ 100 And it will be, when the Lord, your God, will bring you to the land to which you come, to possess it, that you shall place those blessing upon Mount Gerizim, and those cursing upon Mount Ebal. Devarim 11:29


+ 92 For you have not yet come to the resting place or to the inheritance, which the Lord, your God, is giving you. Devarim 12:9


+ 94 Beware, lest you forsake the Levite all your days upon your land. Devarim 12:19


+ 98 When the Lord, your God cuts off the nations to which you will come to drive them out from before you, and when you drive them out and dwell in their land, Devarim 12:29


+ 97 You shall not desire him, and you shall not hearken to him; neither shall you pity him, have mercy upon him, nor shield him. Devarim 13:9


+ 98 For you shall hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, to keep all His commandments which I command you this day, to do that which is proper in the eyes of the Lord, your God. Devarim 13:19


+ 92 These you may eat of all that are in the waters; all that have fins and scales, you may eat. Devarim 14:9


+ 92 And every flying insect is unclean for you; they may not be eaten. Devarim 14:19


+ 100 And the Levite because he has no portion or inheritance with you and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow, who are in your cities, will come and eat and be satisfied; so that the Lord, your God, will bless you in all the work of your hand that you will do. Devarim 14:29


+ 109 Beware, lest there be in your heart an unfaithful thought, saying, "The seventh year, the year of release has approached," and you will begrudge your needy brother and not give him, and he will cry out to the Lord against you, and it will be a sin to you. Devarim 15:9


+ 98 Every firstborn male that is born of your cattle or of your flock you shall sanctify to the Lord, your God. You shall neither work with the firstborn of your ox, nor shear the firstborn of your flock. Devarim 15:19


+ 109 You shall count seven weeks for yourself; from[the time] the sickle is first put to the standing crop, you shall begin to count seven weeks. Devarim 16:9


+ 109 You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show favoritism, and you shall not take a bribe, for bribery blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts just words. Devarim 16:19


+ 101 And you shall come to the Levitic kohanim and to the judge who will be in those days, and you shall inquire, and they will tell you the words of judgment. Devarim 17:9


+ 105 And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, so that he may learn to fear the Lord, his God, to keep all the words of this Torah and these statutes, to perform them, Devarim 17:19


+ 99 When you have come to the land the Lord, your God, is giving you, you shall not learn to do like the abominations of those nations. Devarim 18:9


+ 106 And it will be, that whoever does not hearken to My words that he speaks in My name, I will exact it of him. Devarim 18:19


+ 101 When the Lord, your God, cuts off the nations, whose land the Lord, your God, is giving you, and you inherit them, and dwell in their cities and in their houses, Devarim 19:1


+ 85 You shall separate three cities for yourself in the midst of your land, which the Lord, your God, is giving you to possess. Devarim 19:2


+ 107 Prepare the road for yourself and divide into three parts the boundary of your land, which the Lord, your God, is giving you as an inheritance, and it will be for every killer to flee there. Devarim 19:3


+ 116 And this is the case of the killer who will flee there, so that he may live: Whoever strikes his fellow to death unintentionally, whom he did not hate in times past. Devarim 19:4


+ 111 As when a man goes with his fellow into the forest to chop wood, and his hand swings the ax to cut down the tree, and the iron flies off the handle, and it reaches his fellow, and he dies he shall flee to one of these cities, and live. Devarim 19:5


+ 126 Lest the avenger of the blood pursue the killer, while his heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and he strikes him to death, whereas he was not deserving of death, for he had not hated him in times past. Devarim 19:6


+ 89 Therefore, I command you, saying, "You shall separate for yourself three cities." Devarim 19:7


+ 106 And when the Lord, your God, expands your boundary, as He swore to your forefathers, and He gives you all the land of which He spoke to give to your forefathers; Devarim 19:8


+ 120 If you will keep all this commandment to perform it, which I command you this day, to love the Lord, your God, and to walk in His ways all the days, you shall add three more cities for yourself, in addition to these three, Devarim 19:9


+ 108 So that innocent blood will not be shed in the midst of your land which the Lord, your God, gives you for an inheritance which would deem you guilty of [having shed this] blood. Devarim 19:10


+ 109 But if a man hates his fellow, lies in wait for him, rises up against him, and strikes him mortally, and he flees to one of these cities, Devarim 19:11


+ 88 The elders of his city shall send and take him from there and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of the blood, that he may die. Devarim 19:12


+ 122 And you shall not pity him, but you shall abolish [the shedding of] the blood of the innocent from Israel, and it will be good for you. Devarim 19:13


+ 134 You shall not pull back your neighbor's landmark, which the earlier ones have set as borders in your inheritance, which you will inherit in the land that the Lord, your God gives you, to possess. Devarim 19:14


+ 102 One witness shall not rise up against any person for any iniquity or for any sin, regarding any sin that he will sin. By the mouth of two witnesses, or by the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be confirmed. Devarim 19:15


+ 93 If a false witness rises up against a man, to bear perverted testimony against him, Devarim 19:16


+ 98 Then the two men between whom the controversy exists shall stand before the Lord, before the kohanim and the judges who will be in those days. Devarim 19:17


+ 104 And the judges shall inquire thoroughly, and behold, the witness is a false witness; he has testified falsely against his brother; Devarim 19:18


+ 97 Then you shall do to him as he plotted to do to his brother, and you shall [thus] abolish evil from among you. Devarim 19:19


+ 91 And those who remain shall listen and fear, and they shall no longer continue to commit any such evil thing among you. Devarim 19:20

+ 88 And it shall be, that when the officials finish speaking to the people, they shall appoint officers of the legions at the edges of the people. Devarim 20:9


+ 119 When you besiege a city for many days to wage war against it to capture it, you shall not destroy its trees by wielding an ax against them, for you may eat from them, but you shall not cut them down. Is the tree of the field a man, to go into the siege before you? Devarim 20:19


+ 97 And you shall abolish the shedding of innocent blood from among you, for you shall do what is proper in the eyes of the Lord. Devarim 21:9

+ 105 When you reap your harvest in your field and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to take it; it shall be left for the stranger, the orphan, and the widow, so that the Lord, your God, will bless you in all that you do. Devarim 24:19


+ 114 Then his brother's wife shall approach him before the eyes of the elders and remove his shoe from his foot. And she shall spit before his face and answer [him] and say, "Thus shall be done to the man who will not build up his brother's household!" Devarim 25:9


+ 118 Therefore, it will be, when the Lord your God grants you respite from all your enemies around you in the land which the Lord, your God, gives to you as an inheritance to possess, that you shall obliterate the remembrance of Amalek from beneath the heavens. You shall not forget! Devarim 25:19


+ 88 And He brought us to this place, and He gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey. Devarim 26:9


+ 89 And to make you supreme, above all the nations that He made, so that you will have praise, a distinguished name and glory; and so that you will be a holy people to the Lord, your God, as He spoke. Devarim 26:19


+ 118 Moses and the Levitic priests spoke to all Israel, saying, "Pay attention and listen, O Israel! This day, you have become a people to the Lord, your God. Devarim 27:9


+ 100 Cursed be he who perverts the judgment of the stranger, the orphan, or the widow. And all the people shall say, 'Amen!' Devarim 27:19


+ 107 The Lord will establish you as His holy people as He swore to you, if you observe the commandments of the Lord, your God, and walk in His ways. Devarim 28:9


+ 90 You shall be cursed when you come, and you shall be cursed when you depart. Devarim 28:19


+ 110 You will grope at midday, as the blind man gropes in the dark, and you will be unsuccessful in your ways. You will be only oppressed and robbed all the days, and no one will save you. Devarim 28:29


+ 105 You will plant vineyards and work them, but you will neither drink of their wine, or gather [the grapes], because the worms will devour them. Devarim 28:39

+ 104 Then the Lord will bring upon you and your offspring uniquely horrible plagues, terrible and unyielding plagues, and evil and unyielding sicknesses. Devarim 28:59


+ 116 These are the words of the covenant, which the Lord commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, besides the covenant which he made with them in Horeb. Devarim 28:69


+ 112 And Moses called all of Israel and said to them, You have seen all that the Lord did before your very eyes in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh, to all his servants, and to all his land; Devarim 29:1


+ 108 The great trials which your very eyes beheld and those great signs and wonders. Devarim 29:2


+ 105 Yet until this day, the Lord has not given you a heart to know, eyes to see and ears to hear. Devarim 29:3


+ 94 I led you through the desert for forty years during which time your garments did not wear out from upon you, nor did your shoes wear out from upon your feet. Devarim 29:4


+ 108 You neither ate bread, nor drank new wine or old wine, in order that you would know that I am the Lord, your God. Devarim 29:5


+ 95 And then you arrived at this place. And Sihon, the king of Heshbon, and Og, the king of Bashan, came out towards us in battle, and we smote them. Devarim 29:6


+ 103 And we took their land, and we gave it as an inheritance to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh. Devarim 29:7


+ 88 And you shall observe the words of this covenant and fulfill them, in order that you will succeed in all that you do. Devarim 29:8


+ 98 You are all standing this day before the Lord, your God the leaders of your tribes, your elders and your officers, every man of Israel, Devarim 29:9


+ 109 Your young children, your women, and your convert who is within your camp both your woodcutters and your water drawers, Devarim 29:10


+ 97 That you may enter the covenant of the Lord, your God, and His oath, which the Lord, your God, is making with you this day, Devarim 29:11


+ 129 In order to establish you this day as His people, and that He will be your God, as He spoke to you, and as He swore to your forefathers to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. Devarim 29:12


+ 101 But not only with you am I making this covenant and this oath, Devarim 29:13


+ 94 But with those standing here with us today before the Lord, our God, and also with those who are not here with us, this day. Devarim 29:14


+ 97 For you know how we dwelled in the land of Egypt, and how we passed among the nations through which you passed. Devarim 29:15


+ 106 And you saw their abominations and their repugnant idols of wood and stone, silver and gold which were with them. Devarim 29:16


+ 122 Perhaps there is among you a man, woman, family, or tribe, whose heart strays this day from the Lord, our God, to go and worship the deities of those nations. Perhaps there is among you a root that produces hemlock and wormwood. Devarim 29:17


+ 115 And it will be, when he such a person hears the words of this oath, that he will bless himself in his heart, saying, I will have peace, even if I follow my heart's desires, in order to add the punishment for the unintentional sins of this man to that of his intentional sins. Devarim 29:18


+ 106 The Lord will not be willing to forgive him; rather, then, the Lord's fury and His zeal will fume against that man, and the entire curse written in this book will rest upon him, and the Lord will obliterate his name from beneath the heavens.Devarim 29:19


+ 119 And the Lord will separate him for evil, out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant, written in this Torah scroll. Devarim 29:20


+ 113 And a later generation, your descendants, who will rise after you, along with the foreigner who comes from a distant land, will say, upon seeing the plagues of that land and the diseases with which the Lord struck it: Devarim 29:21


+ 117 Sulfur and salt have burned up its entire land! It cannot be sown, nor can it grow anything, not even any grass will sprout upon it. It is like the overturning of Sodom, Gemorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the Lord overturned in His fury and in His rage. Devarim 29:22


+ 93 And all the nations will say, Why did the Lord do so to this land? What is the reason for this great rage of fury? Devarim 29:23


+ 115 Then they will say, It is because they abandoned the covenant of the Lord, God of their fathers, the covenant which He made with them when He took them out of the land of Egypt, Devarim 29:24


+ 99 For they went and served other deities, prostrating themselves to them deities which they had not known, and which He had not apportioned to them. Devarim 29:25


+ 100 And the Lord's fury raged against that land, bringing upon it the entire curse written in this book. Devarim 29:26


+ 104 And the Lord uprooted them from upon their land, with fury, anger and great wrath, and He cast them to another land, as it is this day. Devarim 29:27


+ 119 The hidden things belong to the Lord, our God, but the revealed things apply to us and to our children forever: that we must fulfill all the words of this Torah. Devarim 29:28


+ 102 And the Lord, your God, will make you abundant for good in all the work of your hands, in the fruit of your womb, in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your soil. For the Lord will once again rejoice over you for good, as He rejoiced over your forefathers, Devarim 30:9


+ 99 This day, I call upon the heaven and the earth as witnesses that I have warned you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. You shall choose life, so that you and your offspring will live; Devarim 30:19


+ 99 Then Moses wrote this Torah, and gave it to the priests, the descendants of Levi, who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and to all the elders of Israel. Devarim 31:9


+ 99 And now, write for yourselves this song, and teach it to the Children of Israel. Place it into their mouths, in order that this song will be for Me as a witness for the children of Israel. Devarim 31:19


+ 105 For I know that after my death, you will surely become corrupted, and deviate from the way which I had commanded you. Consequently, the evil will befall you at the end of days, because you did evil in the eyes of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands. Devarim 31:29


+ 118 Because the Lord's portion is His people Jacob, the lot of His inheritance. Devarim 32:9


+ 72 And the Lord saw this and became angry, provoked by His sons and daughters. Devarim 32:19


+ 77 If they were wise, they would understand this; they would reflect upon their fate. Devarim 32:29


+ 93 See now that it is I! I am the One, and there is no god like Me! I cause death and grant life. I strike, but I heal, and no one can rescue from My Hand! Devarim 32:39


+ 114 Go up this Mount Avarim to Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is facing Jericho, and see the Land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel as a possession, Devarim 32:49


+ 92 Who said of his father and his mother, 'I do not see him'; neither did he recognize his brothers, nor did he know his children, for they observed Your word and kept Your covenant. Devarim 33:9


+ 98 They will call peoples to the mountain; there, they will offer up righteous sacrifices. For they will be nourished by the abundance of the seas, and by the treasures hidden in the sand. Devarim 33:19


+ 119 Fortunate are you, O Israel! Who is like you, O people whose salvation is through the Lord, the Shield Who helps you, your majestic Sword! Your enemies will lie to you, but you will tread upon their heights." Devarim 33:29


+ 127 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, because Moses had laid his hands upon him. And the children of Israel obeyed him, and they did as the Lord had commanded Moses. Devarim 34:9


+ 102 I ran my own business when I was 19, buying condos and renovating apartment buildings. Jared Kushner


+ 96 The 1990's sure aren't like the 1980's. Donald Trump


+ 102 In 2009, pre-Hillary, ISIS was not even on the map. Libya was stable. Egypt was peaceful. Iraq was seeing a really big, big reduction in violence. Iran was being choked by sanctions. Syria was somewhat under control. Donald Trump


+ 105 I like the idea of amending the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include a ban of discrimination based on sexual orientation. It would be simple. It would be straightforward. Donald Trump


+ 123 President Obama has almost doubled our national debt to more than $19 trillion, and growing. And yet, what do we have to show for it? Our roads and bridges are falling apart, our airports are in Third World condition, and forty-three million Americans are on food stamps. Donald Trump


+ 115 “What is it that dies? A log of wood dies to become a few planks. The planks die to become a chair. The chair dies to become a piece of firewood, and the firewood dies to become ash. You give different names to the different shapes the wood takes, but the basic substance is there always. If we could always remember this, we would never worry about the loss of anything. We never lose anything; we never gain anything. By such discrimination we put an end to unhappiness. (118-119)” ? Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras


+ 345 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

+ 205 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!

+ 112 The Well of Mystical Hints

Mystical hints are similar to works of abstract art. Just as abstract art fulfills a certain role in secular matters, these hints fulfill a similar role in matters of holiness.

The more that the well of genius is filled with the liquid of life, the more does it cause the created object to branch out in varied, rich images. If the well is very great, it creates structures that are far from reality and that no eye has seen nor ear heard. It is precisely in these images that the wondrous life based on creation is revealed; they represent the testimony of the soul of their creator.

The more that the great satisfaction of the light and faith-filled life wells forth, so do the mystical hints skip logical steps in an increasingly greater and mightier fashion. Beneath every tendril of these mystical hints are hidden a full wealth and treasure of ethics and faith, beauty of holiness, powerful radiance and Godly, inner trust. These comprise the strength and desire of Israel, the joy of all whose hearts are straight, those who seek God and His strength.

+ 118 The Business for Which We Are Suited

Every one of us must engage in the business for which we are suited.

This is particularly true regarding Torah learning. At times, circumstances may make it difficult for you to stand firm in what your heart desires. But nevertheless, you must stay strong and not relinquish that which is suited for your particular spirit.

Orot Hatorah 9:1


+ 135 Torah Scholars Whose Learning Is Their Occupation

Torah scholars whose learning is their occupation must see to it that their path lies correctly before them and that their goal is clear, so that their spirit may be strong and their mind quiet, calm and settled.

How great is the exalted principle, “You are not required to finish, yet neither are you absolved of the work.” Therefore, there is not such a great need to visualize self-encouragement in your Torah-learning service that involves embracing the totality of its knowledge.

This can calm your heart, so that you may learn every topic with a confident and quiet spirit, undisturbed by other things or by worrying in general about attaining total knowledge, which is impossible. Instead, you find your own personal service acceptable.

Nevertheless, you must pave a path for yourself upon which you can still see the complete circumference of the Torah.

In ideology, you must gain clarity about your purpose and the purpose of your desire in your Torah-learning service of God. Also, in practical learning, you must yearn to encompass and incorporate the complete sum of the entire practical teachings that are in the Torah’s practical aspect—as far as you can.

People customarily say that the Torah has no end. In regard to its practical aspect, that is true only within certain parameters—for really, it is possible, when a person goes on a straight path, to attain a total and clear embrace of the entire practical aspect of the Torah.

Those who are great need no explanation for this. But those of middle rank need help, after they arrive at the measure of competent understanding of the depth of halachah, in knowing the form of halachah in a straight and proper way, [which they gain] by serving Torah scholars in correct measure, until they know how to study any Talmudic discussion properly, and how to question and answer in accordance with the path of Torah in the give and take of halachah. Then their main effort must be, first and foremost, to encompass all the halachos of the Rif in their simple meaning, with competent breadth of knowledge. The attainment of this is made much easier by a calm steadfastness.

This service is very sweet in itself, as well as a pleasurable vision that is close to the goal of total encompassing , knowing the complete sum of all the halachos—according to how very close [their study is] to their source in the Talmud in general. Only through the gathering of all the details will the great beauty of the glorious building of the entire practical Torah stand before your eyes.

When you proceed in this fashion every day, continuously, you will add study-times dedicated to an overall mastery of the written Torah, and you will spend set aside times every day for acquiring the wisdom of the aggadah, midrash, ethical works, philosophy and Kabbalah, in proper proportion, and a breadth of time for independent thought, in order to broaden good sensibilities, as well as your set time for learning Talmud quickly every day, and as well as occasional times for clarifying the depth of halachah broadly and engaging in sharp analysis of various topics, in order to broaden your mind and study in-depth, which is crucial for all those who seek the Torah.

When you acquire an encompassing expertise in the halachos of the Rif, there will be born within you the desire to know the halachos clearly. You will learn a great deal of Talmud (Babylonian and Jerusalem), Toseftas and all the words of the Sages, out of an inner recognition of the need for breadth and clarity. The essence of your service must always be in broad learning of the foundations of the halachos and the essentials of the words of Torah, until the perfection of knowledge in all the areas and details will make your awareness whole in all other matters that a person needs. And at that point, people will be inspired by your advice and counsel.

When you proceed in this way, you will also be able to set fixed times for acquiring the wisdom and knowledge that are useful to a person in this world, which broaden the circumference of your knowledge and give you the courage to face the necessities of life. Then you will be pleasing to others and you will find grace in the eyes of God and man.

+ 114 A Double Joy

At times, when we learn small matters with such great feeling that they impress our spirit as though they were the highest of the high, our consciousness grows corporeal, and the wings of our spirit are severed.

The proper path is to learn every topic with a joy that contains a double feeling.

The first is a feeling of supernal greatness, since every spiritual twig makes whole the entire Tree of Life. In this light, everything is great.

The second is a feeling that in the particular contents of all learning material, particularly of the Torah, there is a very positive value that is worth being appreciated with the joy of respect in accordance with its value.

Then the fire from above and the fire from below join to illuminate and warm our soul.

Orot Hatorah 9:9


+ 170 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).

+ 114 I have seen it written that the prohibition from Above to refrain from open study in the wisdom of truth was only for a limited period, until the end of 1490, but from then on the prohibition has been lifted and permission was granted to study the Zohar. Since 1540 it has been a great Mitzva (commandment) for the masses to study in public, old and young... and that is because the Messiah will come because of that and not because of any other reason. Therefore, we must not be negligent. Rabbi Abraham Ben Mordechai Azulai, Introduction to the book, Ohr HaChama, Light of the Sun

+ 110 Reb Menachem Schneerson is being driven to a Chabad retreat in the Catskills by a young student chauffeur. He suddenly requests of the driver a wish to try driving himself after many years of being driven by others. The young driver feels he cannot refuse the beloved Rabbi and lets him into the drivers seat while he gets into the back seat. Reb Schneerson, having last driven a stickshift in Europe, is having a ball with the advanced automatic, power steering, power brakes and all the luxuries. He soon makes like Richard Petty and comes down the NY Thruway at 95 mph. A NY State Police car soon pulls him over. The jackbooted cop ambles over with the ticket book. As soon as he spots the driver, he freezes and mumbles a "wait here a minute, please." The cop hurries back to his car, gets on the radio to his area supervisor, and reports a very serious problem, "I just pulled over a very important person!"
The captain on the other end asks; "Did you pull over Senator D'Amato again?"
"No, this guy is more important!"
"You didn't stop the governor?"
"No."
"The President?"
"No, but this person is real important, although I'm not quite sure who he is."
"How do you know then that this person is so important?"
"Well, he has the Lubavitcher Rebbe for a chauffeur!"
