Psalm 106 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)
106 ¶ Halelu-JAH. O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good, for his mercy endures for ever.
2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? Who can show forth all his praise?
3 Happy are those that keep judgment and he that does righteousness at all times.
4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou dost bear unto thy people; O visit me with thy saving health,
5 that I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
6 ¶ We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity; we have done wickedly.
7 Our fathers did not understand thy wonders in Egypt; they did not remember the multitude of thy mercies but rebelled by the sea, even at the Red sea.
8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.
9 He reprehended the Red sea also, and it was dried up, so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.
10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.
12 Then they believed his words; they sang his praise.
13 ¶ They became rash. They soon forgot his works; they waited not for his counsel:
14 They gave themselves over to lust in the wilderness and tempted God in the desert.
15 And he gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul.
16 Then they envied Moses in the camp and Aaron the saint of the LORD.
17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan and covered the company of Abiram.
18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
19 They made a calf in Horeb and worshipped the molten image.
20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eats grass.
21 They forgot the God of their saving health, who had done great things in Egypt,
22 wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things upon the Red sea.
23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath lest he should destroy them.
24 And they despised the pleasant land; they did not believe his word:
25 But murmured in their tents and did not hearken unto the voice of the LORD.
26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness,
27 to overthrow their seed also among the Gentiles, and to scatter them in the lands.
28 They also joined themselves unto Baalpeor and ate the sacrifices for the dead.
29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions; and the plague broke in upon them.
30 Then Phinehas stood up and executed judgment, and so the plague was stayed.
31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness from generation to generation for evermore.
32 They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:
33 Because they provoked his spirit to rebel, and he spoke it with his lips.
34 ¶ They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them:
35 But were mingled among the Gentiles and learned their works.
36 And they served their idols, which were a snare unto them.
37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils
38 and shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood.
39 Thus they were defiled with their own works and went a whoring with their own inventions.
40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
41 And he gave them into the hand of the Gentiles, and those that hated them ruled over them.
42 Their enemies oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.
43 He delivered them many times, but they rebelled at his counsel and were brought low for their iniquity.
44 Nevertheless he would look upon their affliction and hear their cry
45 and remember his covenant with them and repent according to the multitude of his mercies.
46 He also caused those that carried them captives to have mercy upon them.
47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the Gentiles, that we might lift up thy holy name, that we might glory in thy praise.
48 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting; and let all the people say, Amen. Halelu-JAH.
Hosea 14 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)
14 ¶ O Israel, become converted unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.
2 Take with you words, and be converted unto the LORD; say unto him, Take away all iniquity and receive us graciously, so will we render the calves of our lips.
3 Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses, neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods, for in thee the fatherless finds mercy.
4 ¶ I will heal their rebellion; I will love them freely; for my anger is turned away from them.
5 I will be as the dew unto Israel; he shall flourish as the lily and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
6 His branches shall spread, and his glory shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.
7 Those that shall sit under his shadow shall return; they shall be given life as the wheat, and they shall flourish as the vine; the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.
8 ¶ Ephraim shall then say, What have I to do any more with idols? I will hear him and gaze upon him; I will be unto him like a green fir tree; of me shall thy fruit be found.
9 Who is wise that he might understand this? and prudent that he might know this? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them; but the rebellious shall fall therein.
Acts 22:30-23:11 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)
30 On the next day, because he wanted to know of certainty the cause for which he was accused of the Jews, he loosed him from his bands and commanded the princes of the priests and all their council to appear and brought Paul down and set him before them.
23 ¶ Then Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.
2 And the prince of the priests, Ananias, commanded those that stood by him to smite him on the mouth.
3 Then Paul said unto him, God shall smite thee, thou whitewashed wall, for dost thou sit to judge me after the law and command me to be smitten contrary to the law?
4 And those that stood by said, Dost thou revile God’s high priest?
5 Then Paul said, I did not know, brethren, that he was the prince of the priests, for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.
6 ¶ But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee, and of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.
7 And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and the multitude was divided.
8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit; but the Pharisees confess both.
9 And there arose a great cry; and the scribes that were of the Pharisees’ part arose and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man, but if a spirit or an angel has spoken to him, let us not fight against God.
10 And when there arose a great dissension, the tribunal, fearing lest Paul should have been pulled in pieces by them, commanded the soldiers to go down and to take him by force from among them and to bring him into the fortress.
11 And the night following the Lord stood by him and said, Be of good cheer, Paul, for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou also bear witness at Rome.
Luke 6:39-49 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)
39 And he spoke a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the pit?
40 The disciple is not above his master, but any one that is as the master shall be perfect.
41 And why dost thou behold the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but not perceive the beam that is in thine own eye?
42 Or how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself dost not behold the beam that is in thine own eye? Hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye.
43 For a good tree does not bring forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush do they gather grapes.
45 The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good, and the evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil, for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
47 Whosoever comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you to whom he is like:
48 he is like a man who built a house and dug deep and laid the foundation upon rock; and when the flood arose, the river beat vehemently upon that house and could not shake it, for it was founded upon rock.
49 But he that hears and does not do is like a man that built a house upon the earth without a foundation against which the river beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
