Numbers 31 (pes)

31:1And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

31:2Avenge the children of Israel against the Midianites; afterward you shall be gathered to your people.

31:3And Moses said to the people, Arm some of the men from among you for the host, and let them go against the Midianites to avenge the LORD against Midian.

31:4Of every tribe, a thousand from each tribe, throughout all the tribes of Israel, you shall send into the army.

31:5So there were selected out of the tribes of Israel a thousand men from each tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.

31:6Then Moses sent them to war, a thousand from each tribe, twelve thousand armed men, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the army, with the holy vessels of the sanctuary and with trumpets to blow in his hand.

31:7And they warred against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males.

31:8And they slew the kings of Midian with the rest of those that were slain; namely, Evi, Rakim, Zur, Hur, and Reba, the five kings of Midian; Balaam also, the son of Beor, they slew with the sword.

31:9And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives; and their little ones and all their cattle and all their flocks and all their wealth they plundered.

31:10And they burned all the cities wherein they dwelt and all their unwalled villages with fire.

31:11And they carried away all the spoil and all the booty, both of men and of beasts.

31:12And they brought the captives, the booty, and the spoil, to Moses and to Eleazar the priest and to the congregation of the children of Israel, to the camp at the plains of Moab which are by the Jordan near Jericho.

31:13And Moses and Eleazar the priest and all the princes of the congregation went forth to meet them outside the camp.

31:14And Moses was wroth with the officers of the army, the commanders of thousands and captains over hundreds who had come from the battle.

31:15And Moses said to them, Why have you let all the women live?

31:16For it was they who caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague in the congregation of the LORD.

31:17Now therefore kill every male among the little ones and kill every woman who has known man by lying with him.

31:18But all the female children, who have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

31:19And as for you, you shall abide outside the camp seven days; whosoever has killed any person and whosoever has touched any slain purify both yourselves and your captives on the third day and on the seventh day,

31:20And purify all your garments and all that is made of skin and all the work of goats' hair and all things made of wood.

31:21And Eleazar the priest said to the men of war who had returned from the battle, This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD commanded Moses:

31:22Only the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead,

31:23Everything that may abide the fire, you shall make it to go through the fire and it shall be clean; nevertheless it shall be purified with the water which is used for cleansing; and all that cannot abide the fire, you shall make pass through the water.

31:24And you must wash your clothes on the seventh day, and you shall be clean, and afterward you shall come into the camp.

31:25And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

31:26Take the count of the prey that was taken and of the captives, both of man and of beast, you and Eleazar the priest and the chiefs of the fathers of the congregation;

31:27And divide the booty into two parts; between the men of war who went out to battle and between all the congregation;

31:28And levy a tribute for the LORD from the men of war who went out to battle; out of all the congregation, one person of every five hundred, both of the persons and of the oxen and of the asses and of the sheep;

31:29Take it from their half and give it to Eleazar the priest as an offering to the LORD.

31:30And from the children of Israel's half, you shall take one out of every fifty, of the persons, of the oxen, of the asses, and of the flocks, and of all the beasts, and give them to the Levites, who have charge of the tabernacle of the LORD.

31:31And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.

31:32And the booty and the captives which the men of war had plundered was six hundred and seventy-five thousand sheep,

31:33And seventy-two thousand oxen,

31:34And sixty-one thousand asses,

31:35And thirty-two thousand persons in all, of women who had not known man by lying with him.

31:36And the half, which was the portion of those who went out to war was in number three hundred and thirty-seven thousand and five hundred sheep;

31:37And the LORD'S tribute of the sheep was six thousand and seven hundred and fifty.

31:38And the oxen were thirty-six thousand; of which the LORD'S tribute was seven hundred and twenty.

31:39And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred; of which the LORD'S tribute was six hundred and ten.

31:40And the persons were sixteen thousand; of which the LORD'S tribute was three hundred and twenty persons.

31:41And Moses gave the tribute, which was the LORD'S gift offering, to Eleazar the priest, as the LORD commanded Moses.

31:42And of the children of Israel's half, which Moses divided from the men who had gone out to war,

31:43(Now the half that pertained to the congregation was three hundred and thirty-seven thousand and five hundred sheep.

31:44And thirty-six thousand oxen,

31:45And thirty thousand and five hundred asses,

31:46And sixteen thousand persons),

31:47Even of the children of Israel's half, Moses took one portion of every fifty, both of man and of beasts, and gave them to the Levites, who have charge of the tabernacle of the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.

31:48And the officers who were over thousands of the host, the commanders of thousands and the captains of hundreds came near to Moses;

31:49And they said to Moses, Your servants have taken the sum of the men of war who are under our charge and there lacks not one man of us.

31:50We have therefore brought as an offering for the LORD what every man has found, articles of gold, ankle chains, and bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces, to make atonement for our souls before the LORD.

31:51And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold from them, all wrought jewels.

31:52And all the gold of the gift offering that they offered to the LORD, from the commanders of thousands and from the captains of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels

31:53(For the men of war had plundered every man for himself.)

31:54And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold from commanders of thousands and from captains of hundreds and brought it into the tabernacle of the congregation for a memorial for the children of Israel before the LORD.

Psalms 75 (pes)

75:1Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks and call upon thy name.

75:2We will declare all thy wondrous works; then the time will come when I will judge uprightly.

75:3Then the earth and all the inhabitants thereof shall be humbled; thou hast ordained the people thereof.

75:4Thou saidst to the fools, Deal not foolishly, and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn;

75:5Lift not up your horn on high; speak not with a stiff neck.

75:6For defence comes neither from the west nor from the east nor from the desert mountains.

75:7But God is the judge; he puts down one, and sets up another.

75:8For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, full of a mixture of the dregs of wine; and he passes it from one to another; surely all the wicked of the earth shall drink the dregs thereof.

75:9But I will live for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

75:10All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

Psalms 76 (pes)

76:1In Judah is God known; his name is great in Israel.

76:2In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.

76:3There broke he the arms of the bow, the shield, and the sword, in the battle.

76:4Thou art all glorious and excellent from thy mighty mountain.

76:5All the foolish of heart were dismayed; the mighty men of valor slept their last sleep.

76:6Their hands prevailed not because of thy rebuke, O God of Jacob; the horsemen are cast into a dead sleep.

76:7Thou, even thou, art to be feared; who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?

76:8Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth saw it and trembled

76:9When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth.

76:10For the wisdom of man shall praise thee; the remainder of his wrath shalt thou restrain.

76:11Vow and fulfil thy vows to the LORD thy God; let all that be round about him bring presents to him who is to be revered.

76:12He shall humble the pride of the rulers; he is dreaded by the kings of the earth.

Isaiah 23 (pes)

23:1The prophecy concerning the fall of Tyre. Howl, O ships of Tarshish! for he who brings merchandise is plundered; from the land of China the news has been revealed to us.

23:2Be still, O inhabitants of the islands, the merchants of Zidon that passed over the sea.

23:3Your commerce is on many waters, O offspring of merchants; the harvest of the river is her revenue, and she is a mart of nations.

23:4Be ashamed, O Zidon; for the sea has spoken, even the strength of the sea, saying, I have neither been in travail nor have I given birth to children, neither have I reared young men nor brought up virgins.

23:5When the news reaches Egypt, they will be in pain over the report of Tyre.

23:6Pass over to Tarshish; howl, O you inhabitants of the islands.

23:7Is this your mighty city, whose antiquity is of ancient days? Her own feet shall carry her afar off to sojourn.

23:8Who has taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are princes, whose traders are the honorable of the earth?

23:9The LORD of hosts has purposed it, to bring to an end the glory of every mighty man and to bring into dishonor all the honorable men of the earth.

23:10Pass through your land like a river, O daughter of Tarshish; there is no one to drive you away.

23:11He stretched out his hand over the sea, he shook the kingdoms; the LORD has given a commandment against Canaan to destroy its mighty men.

23:12And he said, You shall no more become mighty, O you oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon; arise, pass over to China; there also you shall have no rest.

23:13Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this is the people, and not the Assyrians, who destroyed it; they appointed spies who spied on her palaces, and they brought it to ruin.

23:14Howl, O ships of Tarshish; for your stronghold is plundered.

23:15And it shall come to pass in that day that Tyre shall be forgotten for seventy years, according to the days of one king; after the end of seventy years they shall sing to Tyre a harlot's song.

23:16Take a harp, go about the city, O you harlot that has been forgotten; play sweet melodies, sing many songs, that you may be remembered.

23:17And it shall come to pass at the end of seventy years that the LORD will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her traffic and commit fornications with all the kingdoms that are upon the face of the earth.

23:18And her merchandise and her hire shall be sanctified to the LORD; it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise shall be for them that dwell before the LORD, to eat abundantly, and replace their old garments with new ones.

1 John 1 (pes)

1:1He who was from the beginning, the one whom we have heard, and have seen with our eyes, have looked upon, and have touched with our hands, we declare to you is the Word of life.

1:2For the life was manifested, and we have seen it and bear witness to it, and preach to you eternal life, which was with the Father and was revealed to us;

1:3It is that which we have seen and heard that we declare to you, so that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.

1:4And these things we write to you that our joy in you may be complete.

1:5This then is the good news which we have heard from him and declare to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all.

1:6If we say that we have fellowship with him and yet live in darkness, we lie and do not follow the truth;

1:7But if we live in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

1:8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.

1:9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all our unrighteousness.

1:10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar and his word is not in us.
