Kings Defeated by Moses

12 Now these are the kings of the land whom the people of Israel defeated and took possession of their land beyond the Jordan toward the sunrise, from (A)the Valley of the Arnon to Mount Hermon, with all (B)the Arabah eastward: (C)Sihon king of the Amorites who lived at Heshbon and ruled from Aroer, which is on the edge of the Valley of the Arnon, and (D)from the middle of the valley as far as the (E)river Jabbok, the boundary of the Ammonites, that is, half of Gilead, and (F)the Arabah (G)to the Sea of Chinneroth eastward, and in the direction of Beth-jeshimoth, to the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, southward to the foot of (H)the slopes of Pisgah; and (I)Og[a] king of Bashan, one of the remnant of (J)the Rephaim, (K)who lived at Ashtaroth and at Edrei and ruled over (L)Mount Hermon and (M)Salecah and all Bashan (N)to the boundary of the Geshurites and the Maacathites, and over half of Gilead to the boundary of Sihon king of Heshbon. (O)Moses, the servant of the Lord, and the people of Israel defeated them. And Moses the servant of the Lord (P)gave their land for a possession to the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh.

Kings Defeated by Joshua

And these are the kings of the land whom Joshua and the people of Israel defeated on the west side of the Jordan, from Baal-gad in the Valley of Lebanon to (Q)Mount Halak, that rises toward Seir (and Joshua gave their land to the tribes of Israel as a possession (R)according to their allotments, (S)in the hill country, in the lowland, in the Arabah, in the slopes, in the wilderness, and in the Negeb, the land of (T)the Hittites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites): (U)the king of Jericho, one; (V)the king of Ai, which is beside Bethel, one; 10 (W)the king of Jerusalem, one; (X)the king of Hebron, one; 11 (Y)the king of Jarmuth, one; (Z)the king of Lachish, one; 12 (AA)the king of Eglon, one; (AB)the king of Gezer, one; 13 (AC)the king of Debir, one; the king of Geder, one; 14 the king of Hormah, one; the king of Arad, one; 15 (AD)the king of Libnah, one; the king of Adullam, one; 16 (AE)the king of Makkedah, one; (AF)the king of Bethel, one; 17 the king of Tappuah, one; the king of Hepher, one; 18 the king of Aphek, one; the king of Lasharon, one; 19 (AG)the king of Madon, one; (AH)the king of Hazor, one; 20 (AI)the king of Shimron-meron, one; (AJ)the king of Achshaph, one; 21 (AK)the king of Taanach, one; (AL)the king of Megiddo, one; 22 the king of Kedesh, one; the king of Jokneam in Carmel, one; 23 (AM)the king of Dor in (AN)Naphath-dor, one; the king of Goiim in Galilee,[b] one; 24 the king of Tirzah, one: in all, thirty-one kings.

Land Still to Be Conquered

13 Now Joshua (AO)was old and advanced in years, and the Lord said to him, “You are old and advanced in years, and there remains yet very much land (AP)to possess. (AQ)This is the land that yet remains: all the (AR)regions of the Philistines, and all those of the Geshurites (from the (AS)Shihor, which is east of Egypt, northward to the boundary of Ekron, it is counted as Canaanite; (AT)there are five rulers of the Philistines, those of Gaza, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gath, and Ekron), and those of (AU)the Avvim, in the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah that belongs to the Sidonians, to Aphek, to the boundary of (AV)the Amorites, and the land of the (AW)Gebalites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrise, from (AX)Baal-gad below Mount Hermon to (AY)Lebo-hamath, all the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon to (AZ)Misrephoth-maim, even all the Sidonians. I myself will drive (BA)them out from before the people of Israel. Only (BB)allot the land to Israel (BC)for an inheritance, as I have commanded you. Now therefore (BD)divide this land for an inheritance to the nine tribes and half the tribe of Manasseh.”

The Inheritance East of the Jordan

With the other half of the tribe of Manasseh[c] the Reubenites and the Gadites received their inheritance, (BE)which Moses gave them, beyond the Jordan eastward, as Moses the servant of the Lord gave them: (BF)from Aroer, which is on the edge of the Valley of the Arnon, and the city that is in the middle of the valley, and (BG)all the tableland of Medeba as far as Dibon; 10 (BH)and all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, as far as the boundary of the Ammonites; 11 and Gilead, and the (BI)region of the Geshurites and Maacathites, and all Mount Hermon, and (BJ)all Bashan to Salecah; 12 (BK)all the kingdom of Og in Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei (he alone was left of (BL)the remnant of the Rephaim); (BM)these Moses had struck and driven out. 13 (BN)Yet the people of Israel did not drive out the Geshurites or the Maacathites, but Geshur and Maacath dwell in the midst of Israel to this day.

14 (BO)To the tribe of Levi alone Moses gave no inheritance. The offerings by fire to the Lord God of Israel are their inheritance, as he said to him.

15 And Moses gave an inheritance to the tribe of the people of Reuben according to their clans. 16 So their territory was from Aroer, (BP)which is on the edge of the Valley of the Arnon, and the city that is in the middle of the valley, and all the tableland by (BQ)Medeba; 17 with Heshbon, and all its cities that are in the tableland; (BR)Dibon, and Bamoth-baal, and Beth-baal-meon, 18 (BS)and Jahaz, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath, 19 and (BT)Kiriathaim, and (BU)Sibmah, and Zereth-shahar on the hill of the valley, 20 and (BV)Beth-peor, and (BW)the slopes of Pisgah, and (BX)Beth-jeshimoth, 21 that is, (BY)all the cities of the tableland, and all the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, (BZ)whom Moses defeated with (CA)the leaders of Midian, Evi and Rekem and Zur and Hur and Reba, the princes of Sihon, who lived in the land. 22 (CB)Balaam also, the son of Beor, the one who practiced divination, was killed with the sword by the people of Israel among the rest of their slain. 23 And the border of the people of Reuben was the Jordan as a boundary. This was the inheritance of the people of Reuben, according to their clans with their cities and villages.

24 Moses gave an inheritance also to the tribe of Gad, to the people of Gad, according to their clans. 25 (CC)Their territory was Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and half the land of the Ammonites, to Aroer, which is east of (CD)Rabbah, 26 and from Heshbon to Ramath-mizpeh and Betonim, and from (CE)Mahanaim to the territory of Debir,[d] 27 and in the valley Beth-haram, Beth-nimrah, (CF)Succoth, and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon, having the Jordan as a boundary, to the lower end of the Sea of (CG)Chinnereth, eastward beyond the Jordan. 28 This is the inheritance of the people of Gad according to their clans, with their cities and villages.

29 And Moses gave an inheritance to the half-tribe of Manasseh. It was allotted to the half-tribe of the people of Manasseh according to their clans. 30 Their region extended from (CH)Mahanaim, through all Bashan, the whole kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all (CI)the towns of Jair, which are in Bashan, sixty cities, 31 and half Gilead, and (CJ)Ashtaroth, and Edrei, the cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. These were allotted to the people of (CK)Machir the son of Manasseh for the half of the people of Machir according to their clans.

32 These are the inheritances that Moses distributed (CL)in the plains of Moab, beyond the Jordan east of Jericho. 33 (CM)But to the tribe of Levi Moses gave no inheritance; the Lord God of Israel is their inheritance, (CN)just as he said to them.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple

13 (A)The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus (B)went up to Jerusalem. 14 (C)In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there. 15 And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. 16 And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; do not make (D)my Father's house a house of trade.” 17 His disciples remembered that it was written, (E)“Zeal for your house will consume me.”

18 So the Jews said to him, (F)“What sign do you show us for doing these things?” 19 Jesus answered them, (G)“Destroy this temple, and in three days (H)I will raise it up.” 20 The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple,[a] and will you raise it up in three days?” 21 But he was speaking about (I)the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, (J)his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed (K)the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

Jesus Knows What Is in Man

23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in his name (L)when they saw the signs that he was doing. 24 But Jesus (M)on his part did not entrust himself to them, because (N)he knew all people 25 and needed no one to bear witness about man, for (O)he himself knew what was in man.

Bless the Lord, O My Soul

Of David.

103 (A)Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and all that is within me,
    bless his holy name!
(B)Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and (C)forget not all his benefits,
who (D)forgives all your iniquity,
    who (E)heals all your diseases,
who (F)redeems your life from the pit,
    who (G)crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who (H)satisfies you with good
    so that your youth is renewed like (I)the eagle's.

The Lord works (J)righteousness
    and justice for all who are oppressed.
He made known his (K)ways to Moses,
    his (L)acts to the people of Israel.
The Lord is (M)merciful and gracious,
    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
(N)He will not always chide,
    nor will he (O)keep his anger forever.
10 He does not deal with us (P)according to our sins,
    nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For (Q)as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his (R)steadfast love toward (S)those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
    so far does he (T)remove our transgressions from us.
13 As (U)a father shows compassion to his children,
    so the Lord shows compassion (V)to those who fear him.
14 For he knows our frame;[a]
    he (W)remembers that we are dust.

15 As for man, his days are like (X)grass;
    he flourishes like (Y)a flower of the field;
16 for (Z)the wind passes over it, and (AA)it is gone,
    and (AB)its place knows it no more.
17 But (AC)the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on (AD)those who fear him,
    and his righteousness to (AE)children's children,
18 to those who (AF)keep his covenant
    and (AG)remember to do his commandments.
19 The Lord has (AH)established his throne in the heavens,
    and his (AI)kingdom rules over all.

20 Bless the Lord, O you (AJ)his angels,
    you (AK)mighty ones who (AL)do his word,
    obeying the voice of his word!
21 Bless the Lord, all his (AM)hosts,
    his (AN)ministers, who do his will!
22 (AO)Bless the Lord, all his works,
    in all places of his dominion.
(AP)Bless the Lord, O my soul!

    but (D)blessed is he who is generous to the poor.
