Leviticus chapter 23

1
The LORD said to Moses,
2
"Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'These are my appointed feasts, the appointed feasts of the LORD, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies.
3
"'There are six days when you may work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, a day of sacred assembly. You are not to do any work; wherever you live, it is a Sabbath to the LORD.
4
"'These are the LORD's appointed feasts, the sacred assemblies you are to proclaim at their appointed times:
5
The LORD's Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month.
6
On the fifteenth day of that month the LORD's Feast of Unleavened Bread begins; for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast.
7
On the first day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.
8
For seven days present an offering made to the LORD by fire. And on the seventh day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.'"
9
The LORD said to Moses,
10
"Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'When you enter the land I am going to give you and you reap its harvest, bring to the priest a sheaf of the first grain you harvest.
11
He is to wave the sheaf before the LORD so it will be accepted on your behalf; the priest is to wave it on the day after the Sabbath.
12
On the day you wave the sheaf, you must sacrifice as a burnt offering to the LORD a lamb a year old without defect,
13
together with its grain offering of two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil-- an offering made to the LORD by fire, a pleasing aroma-- and its drink offering of a quarter of a hin of wine.
14
You must not eat any bread, or roasted or new grain, until the very day you bring this offering to your God. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.
15
"'From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, count off seven full weeks.
16
Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath, and then present an offering of new grain to the LORD.
17
From wherever you live, bring two loaves made of two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour, baked with yeast, as a wave offering of firstfruits to the LORD.
18
Present with this bread seven male lambs, each a year old and without defect, one young bull and two rams. They will be a burnt offering to the LORD, together with their grain offerings and drink offerings-- an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.
19
Then sacrifice one male goat for a sin offering and two lambs, each a year old, for a fellowship offering.
20
The priest is to wave the two lambs before the LORD as a wave offering, together with the bread of the firstfruits. They are a sacred offering to the LORD for the priest.
21
On that same day you are to proclaim a sacred assembly and do no regular work. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.
22
"'When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the LORD your God.'"
23
The LORD said to Moses,
24
"Say to the Israelites: 'On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts.
25
Do no regular work, but present an offering made to the LORD by fire.'"
26
The LORD said to Moses,
27
"The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves, and present an offering made to the LORD by fire.
28
Do no work on that day, because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement is made for you before the LORD your God.
29
Anyone who does not deny himself on that day must be cut off from his people.
30
I will destroy from among his people anyone who does any work on that day.
31
You shall do no work at all. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.
32
It is a sabbath of rest for you, and you must deny yourselves. From the evening of the ninth day of the month until the following evening you are to observe your sabbath."
33
The LORD said to Moses,
34
"Say to the Israelites: 'On the fifteenth day of the seventh month the LORD's Feast of Tabernacles begins, and it lasts for seven days.
35
The first day is a sacred assembly; do no regular work.
36
For seven days present offerings made to the LORD by fire, and on the eighth day hold a sacred assembly and present an offering made to the LORD by fire. It is the closing assembly; do no regular work.
37
("'These are the LORD's appointed feasts, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies for bringing offerings made to the LORD by fire-- the burnt offerings and grain offerings, sacrifices and drink offerings required for each day.
38
These offerings are in addition to those for the LORD's Sabbaths and in addition to your gifts and whatever you have vowed and all the freewill offerings you give to the LORD.)
39
"'So beginning with the fifteenth day of the seventh month, after you have gathered the crops of the land, celebrate the festival to the LORD for seven days; the first day is a day of rest, and the eighth day also is a day of rest.
40
On the first day you are to take choice fruit from the trees, and palm fronds, leafy branches and poplars, and rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days.
41
Celebrate this as a festival to the LORD for seven days each year. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come; celebrate it in the seventh month.
42
Live in booths for seven days: All native-born Israelites are to live in booths
43
so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in booths when I brought them out of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.'"
44
So Moses announced to the Israelites the appointed feasts of the LORD.

Leviticus chapter 24

1
The LORD said to Moses,
2
"Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning continually.
3
Outside the curtain of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting, Aaron is to tend the lamps before the LORD from evening till morning, continually. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come.
4
The lamps on the pure gold lampstand before the LORD must be tended continually.
5
"Take fine flour and bake twelve loaves of bread, using two-tenths of an ephah for each loaf.
6
Set them in two rows, six in each row, on the table of pure gold before the LORD.
7
Along each row put some pure incense as a memorial portion to represent the bread and to be an offering made to the LORD by fire.
8
This bread is to be set out before the LORD regularly, Sabbath after Sabbath, on behalf of the Israelites, as a lasting covenant.
9
It belongs to Aaron and his sons, who are to eat it in a holy place, because it is a most holy part of their regular share of the offerings made to the LORD by fire."
10
Now the son of an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father went out among the Israelites, and a fight broke out in the camp between him and an Israelite.
11
The son of the Israelite woman blasphemed the Name with a curse; so they brought him to Moses. (His mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri the Danite.)
12
They put him in custody until the will of the LORD should be made clear to them.
13
Then the LORD said to Moses:
14
"Take the blasphemer outside the camp. All those who heard him are to lay their hands on his head, and the entire assembly is to stone him.
15
Say to the Israelites: 'If anyone curses his God, he will be held responsible;
16
anyone who blasphemes the name of the LORD must be put to death. The entire assembly must stone him. Whether an alien or native-born, when he blasphemes the Name, he must be put to death.
17
"'If anyone takes the life of a human being, he must be put to death.
18
Anyone who takes the life of someone's animal must make restitution-- life for life.
19
If anyone injures his neighbor, whatever he has done must be done to him:
20
fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. As he has injured the other, so he is to be injured.
21
Whoever kills an animal must make restitution, but whoever kills a man must be put to death.
22
You are to have the same law for the alien and the native-born. I am the LORD your God.'"
23
Then Moses spoke to the Israelites, and they took the blasphemer outside the camp and stoned him. The Israelites did as the LORD commanded Moses.

Psalm chapter 24

1
Of David. A psalm. The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;
2
for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.
3
Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place?
4
He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false.
5
He will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God his Savior.
6
Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob. Selah
7
Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
8
Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9
Lift up your heads, O you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
10
Who is he, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty-- he is the King of glory. Selah

Acts chapter 21

1
After we had torn ourselves away from them, we put out to sea and sailed straight to Cos. The next day we went to Rhodes and from there to Patara.
2
We found a ship crossing over to Phoenicia, went on board and set sail.
3
After sighting Cyprus and passing to the south of it, we sailed on to Syria. We landed at Tyre, where our ship was to unload its cargo.
4
Finding the disciples there, we stayed with them seven days. Through the Spirit they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem.
5
But when our time was up, we left and continued on our way. All the disciples and their wives and children accompanied us out of the city, and there on the beach we knelt to pray.
6
After saying good-by to each other, we went aboard the ship, and they returned home.
7
We continued our voyage from Tyre and landed at Ptolemais, where we greeted the brothers and stayed with them for a day.
8
Leaving the next day, we reached Caesarea and stayed at the house of Philip the evangelist, one of the Seven.
9
He had four unmarried daughters who prophesied.
10
After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea.
11
Coming over to us, he took Paul's belt, tied his own hands and feet with it and said, "The Holy Spirit says, 'In this way the Jews of Jerusalem will bind the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.'"
12
When we heard this, we and the people there pleaded with Paul not to go up to Jerusalem.
13
Then Paul answered, "Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."
14
When he would not be dissuaded, we gave up and said, "The Lord's will be done."
15
After this, we got ready and went up to Jerusalem.
16
Some of the disciples from Caesarea accompanied us and brought us to the home of Mnason, where we were to stay. He was a man from Cyprus and one of the early disciples.
17
When we arrived at Jerusalem, the brothers received us warmly.
18
The next day Paul and the rest of us went to see James, and all the elders were present.
19
Paul greeted them and reported in detail what God had done among the Gentiles through his ministry.
20
When they heard this, they praised God. Then they said to Paul: "You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews have believed, and all of them are zealous for the law.
21
They have been informed that you teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn away from Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children or live according to our customs.
22
What shall we do? They will certainly hear that you have come,
23
so do what we tell you. There are four men with us who have made a vow.
24
Take these men, join in their purification rites and pay their expenses, so that they can have their heads shaved. Then everybody will know there is no truth in these reports about you, but that you yourself are living in obedience to the law.
25
As for the Gentile believers, we have written to them our decision that they should abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality."
26
The next day Paul took the men and purified himself along with them. Then he went to the temple to give notice of the date when the days of purification would end and the offering would be made for each of them.
27
When the seven days were nearly over, some Jews from the province of Asia saw Paul at the temple. They stirred up the whole crowd and seized him,
28
shouting, "Men of Israel, help us! This is the man who teaches all men everywhere against our people and our law and this place. And besides, he has brought Greeks into the temple area and defiled this holy place."
29
(They had previously seen Trophimus the Ephesian in the city with Paul and assumed that Paul had brought him into the temple area.)
30
The whole city was aroused, and the people came running from all directions. Seizing Paul, they dragged him from the temple, and immediately the gates were shut.
31
While they were trying to kill him, news reached the commander of the Roman troops that the whole city of Jerusalem was in an uproar.
32
He at once took some officers and soldiers and ran down to the crowd. When the rioters saw the commander and his soldiers, they stopped beating Paul.
33
The commander came up and arrested him and ordered him to be bound with two chains. Then he asked who he was and what he had done.
34
Some in the crowd shouted one thing and some another, and since the commander could not get at the truth because of the uproar, he ordered that Paul be taken into the barracks.
35
When Paul reached the steps, the violence of the mob was so great he had to be carried by the soldiers.
36
The crowd that followed kept shouting, "Away with him!"
37
As the soldiers were about to take Paul into the barracks, he asked the commander, "May I say something to you?" "Do you speak Greek?" he replied.
38
"Aren't you the Egyptian who started a revolt and led four thousand terrorists out into the desert some time ago?"
39
Paul answered, "I am a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no ordinary city. Please let me speak to the people."
40
Having received the commander's permission, Paul stood on the steps and motioned to the crowd. When they were all silent, he said to them in Aramaic:
