Numbers chapter 5

1
The LORD said to Moses,
2
"Command the Israelites to send away from the camp anyone who has an infectious skin disease or a discharge of any kind, or who is ceremonially unclean because of a dead body.
3
Send away male and female alike; send them outside the camp so they will not defile their camp, where I dwell among them."
4
The Israelites did this; they sent them outside the camp. They did just as the LORD had instructed Moses.
5
The LORD said to Moses,
6
"Say to the Israelites: 'When a man or woman wrongs another in any way and so is unfaithful to the LORD, that person is guilty
7
and must confess the sin he has committed. He must make full restitution for his wrong, add one fifth to it and give it all to the person he has wronged.
8
But if that person has no close relative to whom restitution can be made for the wrong, the restitution belongs to the LORD and must be given to the priest, along with the ram with which atonement is made for him.
9
All the sacred contributions the Israelites bring to a priest will belong to him.
10
Each man's sacred gifts are his own, but what he gives to the priest will belong to the priest.'"
11
Then the LORD said to Moses,
12
"Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'If a man's wife goes astray and is unfaithful to him
13
by sleeping with another man, and this is hidden from her husband and her impurity is undetected (since there is no witness against her and she has not been caught in the act),
14
and if feelings of jealousy come over her husband and he suspects his wife and she is impure-- or if he is jealous and suspects her even though she is not impure--
15
then he is to take his wife to the priest. He must also take an offering of a tenth of an ephah of barley flour on her behalf. He must not pour oil on it or put incense on it, because it is a grain offering for jealousy, a reminder offering to draw attention to guilt.
16
"'The priest shall bring her and have her stand before the LORD.
17
Then he shall take some holy water in a clay jar and put some dust from the tabernacle floor into the water.
18
After the priest has had the woman stand before the LORD, he shall loosen her hair and place in her hands the reminder offering, the grain offering for jealousy, while he himself holds the bitter water that brings a curse.
19
Then the priest shall put the woman under oath and say to her, "If no other man has slept with you and you have not gone astray and become impure while married to your husband, may this bitter water that brings a curse not harm you.
20
But if you have gone astray while married to your husband and you have defiled yourself by sleeping with a man other than your husband"--
21
here the priest is to put the woman under this curse of the oath-- "may the LORD cause your people to curse and denounce you when he causes your thigh to waste away and your abdomen to swell.
22
May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells and your thigh wastes away." "'Then the woman is to say, "Amen. So be it."
23
"'The priest is to write these curses on a scroll and then wash them off into the bitter water.
24
He shall have the woman drink the bitter water that brings a curse, and this water will enter her and cause bitter suffering.
25
The priest is to take from her hands the grain offering for jealousy, wave it before the LORD and bring it to the altar.
26
The priest is then to take a handful of the grain offering as a memorial offering and burn it on the altar; after that, he is to have the woman drink the water.
27
If she has defiled herself and been unfaithful to her husband, then when she is made to drink the water that brings a curse, it will go into her and cause bitter suffering; her abdomen will swell and her thigh waste away, and she will become accursed among her people.
28
If, however, the woman has not defiled herself and is free from impurity, she will be cleared of guilt and will be able to have children.
29
"'This, then, is the law of jealousy when a woman goes astray and defiles herself while married to her husband,
30
or when feelings of jealousy come over a man because he suspects his wife. The priest is to have her stand before the LORD and is to apply this entire law to her.
31
The husband will be innocent of any wrongdoing, but the woman will bear the consequences of her sin.'"

Numbers chapter 6

1
The LORD said to Moses,
2
"Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'If a man or woman wants to make a special vow, a vow of separation to the LORD as a Nazirite,
3
he must abstain from wine and other fermented drink and must not drink vinegar made from wine or from other fermented drink. He must not drink grape juice or eat grapes or raisins.
4
As long as he is a Nazirite, he must not eat anything that comes from the grapevine, not even the seeds or skins.
5
"'During the entire period of his vow of separation no razor may be used on his head. He must be holy until the period of his separation to the LORD is over; he must let the hair of his head grow long.
6
Throughout the period of his separation to the LORD he must not go near a dead body.
7
Even if his own father or mother or brother or sister dies, he must not make himself ceremonially unclean on account of them, because the symbol of his separation to God is on his head.
8
Throughout the period of his separation he is consecrated to the LORD.
9
"'If someone dies suddenly in his presence, thus defiling the hair he has dedicated, he must shave his head on the day of his cleansing-- the seventh day.
10
Then on the eighth day he must bring two doves or two young pigeons to the priest at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
11
The priest is to offer one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering to make atonement for him because he sinned by being in the presence of the dead body. That same day he is to consecrate his head.
12
He must dedicate himself to the LORD for the period of his separation and must bring a year-old male lamb as a guilt offering. The previous days do not count, because he became defiled during his separation.
13
"'Now this is the law for the Nazirite when the period of his separation is over. He is to be brought to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
14
There he is to present his offerings to the LORD: a year-old male lamb without defect for a burnt offering, a year-old ewe lamb without defect for a sin offering, a ram without defect for a fellowship offering,
15
together with their grain offerings and drink offerings, and a basket of bread made without yeast-- cakes made of fine flour mixed with oil, and wafers spread with oil.
16
"'The priest is to present them before the LORD and make the sin offering and the burnt offering.
17
He is to present the basket of unleavened bread and is to sacrifice the ram as a fellowship offering to the LORD, together with its grain offering and drink offering.
18
"'Then at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, the Nazirite must shave off the hair that he dedicated. He is to take the hair and put it in the fire that is under the sacrifice of the fellowship offering.
19
"'After the Nazirite has shaved off the hair of his dedication, the priest is to place in his hands a boiled shoulder of the ram, and a cake and a wafer from the basket, both made without yeast.
20
The priest shall then wave them before the LORD as a wave offering; they are holy and belong to the priest, together with the breast that was waved and the thigh that was presented. After that, the Nazirite may drink wine.
21
"'This is the law of the Nazirite who vows his offering to the LORD in accordance with his separation, in addition to whatever else he can afford. He must fulfill the vow he has made, according to the law of the Nazirite.'"
22
The LORD said to Moses,
23
"Tell Aaron and his sons, 'This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
24
"'"The LORD bless you and keep you;
25
the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
26
the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace."'
27
"So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them."

Psalm chapter 22

1
For the director of music. To [the tune of] "The Doe of the Morning." A psalm of David. My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning?
2
O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, and am not silent.
3
Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the praise of Israel.
4
In you our fathers put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them.
5
They cried to you and were saved; in you they trusted and were not disappointed.
6
But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by men and despised by the people.
7
All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads:
8
"He trusts in the LORD; let the LORD rescue him. Let him deliver him, since he delights in him."
9
Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you even at my mother's breast.
10
From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother's womb you have been my God.
11
Do not be far from me, for trouble is near and there is no one to help.
12
Many bulls surround me; strong bulls of Bashan encircle me.
13
Roaring lions tearing their prey open their mouths wide against me.
14
I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart has turned to wax; it has melted away within me.
15
My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you lay me in the dust of death.
16
Dogs have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet.
17
I can count all my bones; people stare and gloat over me.
18
They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.
19
But you, O LORD, be not far off; O my Strength, come quickly to help me.
20
Deliver my life from the sword, my precious life from the power of the dogs.
21
Rescue me from the mouth of the lions; save me from the horns of the wild oxen.
22
I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation I will praise you.
23
You who fear the LORD, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel!
24
For he has not despised or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden his face from him but has listened to his cry for help.
25
From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly; before those who fear you will I fulfill my vows.
26
The poor will eat and be satisfied; they who seek the LORD will praise him-- may your hearts live forever!
27
All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him,
28
for dominion belongs to the LORD and he rules over the nations.
29
All the rich of the earth will feast and worship; all who go down to the dust will kneel before him-- those who cannot keep themselves alive.
30
Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord.
31
They will proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn-- for he has done it.

Acts chapter 26

1
Then Agrippa said to Paul, "You have permission to speak for yourself." So Paul motioned with his hand and began his defense:
2
"King Agrippa, I consider myself fortunate to stand before you today as I make my defense against all the accusations of the Jews,
3
and especially so because you are well acquainted with all the Jewish customs and controversies. Therefore, I beg you to listen to me patiently.
4
"The Jews all know the way I have lived ever since I was a child, from the beginning of my life in my own country, and also in Jerusalem.
5
They have known me for a long time and can testify, if they are willing, that according to the strictest sect of our religion, I lived as a Pharisee.
6
And now it is because of my hope in what God has promised our fathers that I am on trial today.
7
This is the promise our twelve tribes are hoping to see fulfilled as they earnestly serve God day and night. O king, it is because of this hope that the Jews are accusing me.
8
Why should any of you consider it incredible that God raises the dead?
9
"I too was convinced that I ought to do all that was possible to oppose the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
10
And that is just what I did in Jerusalem. On the authority of the chief priests I put many of the saints in prison, and when they were put to death, I cast my vote against them.
11
Many a time I went from one synagogue to another to have them punished, and I tried to force them to blaspheme. In my obsession against them, I even went to foreign cities to persecute them.
12
"On one of these journeys I was going to Damascus with the authority and commission of the chief priests.
13
About noon, O king, as I was on the road, I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, blazing around me and my companions.
14
We all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic, 'Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.'
15
"Then I asked, 'Who are you, Lord?' "'I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,' the Lord replied.
16
'Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen of me and what I will show you.
17
I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them
18
to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'
19
"So then, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the vision from heaven.
20
First to those in Damascus, then to those in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and to the Gentiles also, I preached that they should repent and turn to God and prove their repentance by their deeds.
21
That is why the Jews seized me in the temple courts and tried to kill me.
22
But I have had God's help to this very day, and so I stand here and testify to small and great alike. I am saying nothing beyond what the prophets and Moses said would happen--
23
that the Christ would suffer and, as the first to rise from the dead, would proclaim light to his own people and to the Gentiles."
24
At this point Festus interrupted Paul's defense. "You are out of your mind, Paul!" he shouted. "Your great learning is driving you insane."
25
"I am not insane, most excellent Festus," Paul replied. "What I am saying is true and reasonable.
26
The king is familiar with these things, and I can speak freely to him. I am convinced that none of this has escaped his notice, because it was not done in a corner.
27
King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets? I know you do."
28
Then Agrippa said to Paul, "Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?"
29
Paul replied, "Short time or long-- I pray God that not only you but all who are listening to me today may become what I am, except for these chains."
30
The king rose, and with him the governor and Bernice and those sitting with them.
31
They left the room, and while talking with one another, they said, "This man is not doing anything that deserves death or imprisonment."
32
Agrippa said to Festus, "This man could have been set free if he had not appealed to Caesar."
