1 And Yahweh spoke to Moses and Aaron in the Land of Egypt, “This month will be for you the first month, the beginning of the year [for religious observances]. Tell the assembled people of Israel, ‘On the tenth of this month, every man should take a lamb [or a goat] for his family, one per household. And if his household is too small for [consuming] the lamb, let him and his neighbor come together based on the number in the household and how much each can eat. Your lamb must be a one-year old male without blemish, either a sheep or a goat. And you will keep it penned until the fourteenth day of the same month, and all the people of Israel will slaughter it in the evening. And they shall take the blood of the lamb [or goat] and apply it on the two side posts and the upper post of the door of the house where they will eat. And that night they will eat the meat roasted in the fire, along with bread made without yeast, and bitter herbs. Don’t eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but roasted with fire, including the head and the legs and the internal organs. 10 And you will leave none of it for the next day. Anything remaining, burn with fire. 11 And here is how you shall eat it – with your belts on, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hands. You shall eat it quickly. It is Yahweh’s Passover [exemption from death]. 12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night and I will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast. And against all of the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment. I am Yahweh! 13 And the blood will mark the houses where you are. When I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague will not destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. 14 And this day will be a memorial for you, and you will keep it as a feast to Yahweh throughout your generations. It is an ordinance for you forever to keep this feast.

This will be a regular, annual event from generation to generation, for this is Yahweh’s most holy altar.”

And he [Yahweh] said, “Now, hear my words. If there is a prophet among you, Yahweh will give him a vision, [or] I will make myself known in a dream. Not so with my servant, Moses, who is faithful in all my house. I will speak to him mouth-to-mouth, even appearing to him, and not in symbolic sayings and a representative appearance of Yahweh. Why then weren’t you afraid to speak against my servant, Moses? [Miriam and Aaron had complained that they were not equally regarded as Moses.]

“This is a requirement of the law Yahweh has commanded: Tell the Israelites to bring you a red heifer without defect or blemish and that has never been under a yoke. 3 Give it to Eleazar the priest, who will take the heifer outside the camp, where it is to be slaughtered in front of him. Then Eleazar the priest is to take some of its blood on his finger and sprinkle it seven times toward the front of the tent of meeting. While he watches, the heifer is to be burned—its hide, flesh, blood and intestines. The priest is to take some cedar wood, hyssop and scarlet wool and throw them onto the burning heifer. After that, the priest must wash his clothes and bathe himself with water. He may then come into the camp, but he will be ceremonially unclean till evening. The man who burns the carcass must also wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he too will be unclean till evening. A man who is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer and put them in a ceremonially clean place outside the camp. They are to be kept by the Israelite community for use in the water of cleansing; it is for purification from sin. 10 The man who gathers up the ashes of the heifer must also wash his clothes, and he too will be unclean till evening. This will be a lasting commandment both for the Israelites and for the foreigners residing among them.”

Num 19:2-10

At that time Yahweh said to me, “Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones and come up to me on the mountain. Also make a wooden ark. I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. Then you are to put them in the ark.” So I made the ark out of acacia wood and chiseled out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I went up on the mountain with the two tablets in my hands. Yahweh wrote on these tablets what he had written before, the Ten Commandments he had proclaimed to you on the mountain, out of the fire, on the day of the assembly. And Yahweh gave them to me. Then I came back down the mountain and put the tablets in the ark I had made, as Yahweh commanded me, and they are there now.

Deu 32:35-36

Joshua 6:1-20

Now the gates of Jericho were securely barred because of the Israelites. No one went out and no one came in. 2 The Yahweh said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men. March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days. Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams’ horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets. When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have the whole army give a loud shout. Then the wall of the city will collapse and the army will go up, everyone straight in.”

 

So Joshua son of Nun called the priests and said to them, “Take up the ark of the covenant of Yahweh and have seven priests carry trumpets in front of it.” 7 And he ordered the army, “Advance! March around the city, with an armed guard going ahead of the ark of Yahweh.”

 

When Joshua had spoken to the people, the seven priests carrying the seven trumpets before Yahweh went forward, blowing their trumpets, and the ark of Yahweh’s covenant followed them. The armed guard marched ahead of the priests who blew the trumpets, and the rear guard followed the ark. All this time the trumpets were sounding. 10 But Joshua had commanded the army, “Do not give a war cry, do not raise your voices, do not say a word until the day I tell you to shout. Then shout!” 11 So he had the ark of Yahweh carried around the city, circling it once. Then the army returned to camp and spent the night there.

 

1Joshua got up early the next morning and the priests took up the ark of Yahweh. 13 The seven priests carrying the seven trumpets went forward, marching before the ark of Yahweh and blowing the trumpets. The armed men went ahead of them and the rear guard followed the ark of Yahweh, while the trumpets kept sounding. 14 So on the second day they marched around the city once and returned to the camp. They did this for six days.

15 On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times. 16 The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For Yahweh has given you the city! 17 The city and all that is in it are cursed [and set aside for destruction] to Yahweh. Only Rahab the prostitute and all who are with her in her house shall be spared, because she hid the spies we sent. 1But keep away from the cursed things, so that you will not bring about your own destruction by taking any of them. Otherwise you will make the camp of Israel liable to destruction and bring trouble on it. 19 All the silver and gold and the articles of bronze and iron are sacred to Yahweh and must go into his treasury.” 20 When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so everyone charged straight in, and they took the city.

Jos 6:1-20

Joshua 14:6-9

A delegation from the tribe of Judah, led by Caleb son of Jephunneh, the Kenizzite, came to Joshua at Gilgal. Caleb said to Joshua, “Remember what Yahweh said to Moses, the man of God, about you and me when we were at Kadesh-Barnea. I was forty years old when Moses, the servant of Yahweh, sent me from Kadesh-Barnea to explore the land of Canaan. I returned and gave an honest report, 8 but my brothers who went with me frightened the people from entering the Promised Land. For my part, I wholeheartedly followed Yahweh my God. 9 So that day Moses solemnly promised me, ‘The land of Canaan on which you were just walking will be your grant of land and that of your descendants forever, because you wholeheartedly followed Yahweh my God.’”

Josh14:6-9

2 Samuel 24:24-25

24 But the king replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on buying it, for I will not present burnt offerings to Yahweh my God that have cost me nothing.” So David paid him fifty shekels of silver for the threshing floor and the oxen. 25 David built an altar there to Yahweh and sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings. And Yahweh answered his prayer for the land, and the plague on Israel was stopped.

2 Sam 24:24-25

1 Kings 17:19-24

19 But Elijah replied, “Give me your son.” And he took the child’s body from her arms, carried him up the stairs to the room where he was staying, and laid the body on his bed. 20 Then Elijah cried out to Yahweh, “Yahweh, my God, why have you brought tragedy to this widow who has opened her home to me, causing her son to die?” 21 And he stretched himself out over the child three times and cried out to Yahweh, “Yahweh, my God, please let this child’s life return to him.” 22 Yahweh heard Elijah’s prayer, and the life of the child returned, and he revived! 23 Then Elijah brought him down from the upper room and gave him to his mother. “Look!” he said. “Your son is alive!” 24 Then the woman told Elijah, “Now I know for sure that you are a man of God, and that Yahweh truly speaks through you.”

2 Kings 4:18-37

1One day when her child was older, he went out to help his father, who was working with the harvesters. 19 Suddenly he cried out, “My head hurts! My head hurts!” His father said to one of the servants, “Carry him home to his mother.” 20 So the servant took him home, and his mother held him on her lap. But around noontime he died. 21 She carried him up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, then shut the door and left him there.

22 She sent a message to her husband: “Send one of the servants and a donkey so that I can hurry to the man of God and come right back.” 23 “Why go today?” he asked. “It is neither a new moon festival nor a Sabbath.” But she said, “It will be all right.” 24 So she saddled the donkey and said to the servant, “Hurry! Don’t slow down unless I tell you to.”

25 As she approached the man of God at Mount Carmel, Elisha saw her in the distance. He said to Gehazi, “Look, the woman from Shunem is coming. 26 Run out to meet her and ask her, ‘Is everything all right with you, your husband, and your child?’” “Yes,” the woman told Gehazi, “everything is fine.” 27 But when she came to the man of God at the mountain, she fell to the ground before him and caught hold of his feet. Gehazi began to push her away, but the man of God said, “Leave her alone. She is deeply troubled, but Yahweh has not told me what it is.” 28 Then she said, “Did I ask you for a son, my lord? And didn’t I say, ‘Don’t deceive me and get my hopes up’?”

29 Then Elisha said to Gehazi, “Get ready to travel. Take my staff and go! Don’t talk to anyone along the way. Go quickly and lay the staff on the child’s face.” 30 But the boy’s mother said, “As surely as Yahweh lives and you yourself live, I won’t go home unless you go with me.” So Elisha returned with her. 31 Gehazi hurried on ahead and laid the staff on the child’s face, but nothing happened. There was no sign of life. He returned to meet Elisha and told him, “The child is still dead.”

32 When Elisha arrived, the child was indeed dead, lying there on the prophet’s bed. 33 He went in alone and shut the door behind him and prayed to the Lord. 34 Then he lay down on the child’s body, placing his mouth on the child’s mouth, his eyes on the child’s eyes, and his hands on the child’s hands. And as he stretched out on him, the child’s body began to grow warm again! 35 Elisha got up, walked back and forth across the room once, and then stretched himself out again on the child. This time the boy sneezed seven times and opened his eyes!

36 Then Elisha summoned Gehazi. “Call the child’s mother!” he said. And when she came in, Elisha said, “Here, take your son!” 37 She fell at his feet and bowed before him, overwhelmed with gratitude. Then she took her son in her arms and carried him downstairs.

2 Chronicles 24:20-22

20 And the Spirit of the Lord came on Zechariah, the son of Jehoida, the priest. He [Zechariah] stood above the people and said to them, "This is what God said, 'Why do you disobey Yahweh's commands and keep yourself from prospering? Because you left Yahweh, he has left you!'" 21 Then the leaders plotted to kill Zechariah, and King Joash ordered that they stone him to death in the courtyard of Yahweh's Temple. 22 That was how King Joash repaid Jehoida for his loyalty-by killing his son. Zechariah's last words as he died were, "May Yahweh see what they are doing and avenge my death!"

I [the Anointed One] will speak out what Yahweh had decreed to me, "You are my son. Today, I declare I am your father."

Psalms 8:1-9

1 Yahweh, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! Your majesty is greater than the heavens. Out of the mouths of babies and infants is the telling of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you. When I look at the heavens and see the work of your fingers—the moon and the stars you set in place—what are men that you should even think about them, human beings that you should care for them? Yet you made them only a little lower than angels and crowned them [humans] with glory and honor. You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority—the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents. Yahweh, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Psa 40:6-8

Psalms 95:6-11

6 Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before Yahweh, our maker. 7 “Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness. Today, if only you would hear his voice, 8 do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness, 9 where your ancestors tested me. They tried me, though they had seen what I did. 10 For forty years I was angry with that generation. I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they have not known my ways’. 11 So I declared on oath in my anger, ‘They shall never enter my rest.’”

Psa 95:6-11

Psalms 95:7-8

Psa 95:8

Psalms 95:10-11

Psalms 97:1-7

1 The Lord reigns, let the earth exult, let many islands rejoice. 2  Cloud and darkness are round about him. Righteousness and judgment are the establishment of his throne. 3 Fire shall go before him, and burn up his enemies round about. His lightnings appeared to the world - the earth saw, and trembled. The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. The heavens have declared his righteousness, and all the people have seen his glory. Let all that worship graven images be ashamed, who boast of their idols. Worship him, all his angels!

Psa 97:1-7

Psalms 102:25-27

25 In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. 26 They will perish, but you remain. They will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them  and they will be discarded. 27 But you remain the same, and your years will never end.

Jeremiah 7:22-24

22 For when I brought your ancestors out of Egypt and spoke to them, I did not just give them commands about burnt offerings and sacrifices, 23 but I gave them this command: Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in obedience to all I command you, that it may go well with you. 24 But they did not listen or pay attention. Instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. They went backward and not forward.

Jer 7:22-24

Jeremiah 31:31-34

31 “The days are coming,” declares Yahweh, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them boy the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them”, declares Yahweh. 33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares Yahweh. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 34 No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know Yahweh’, because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares Yahweh. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”

Jer 33:17

Jeremiah 33:17

17 For this is what Yahweh says: “David will never fail to have a man to sit on the throne of Israel.”

Daniel 3:13-27

13 Furious with rage, Nebuchadnezzar summoned Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king, 14 and Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the image of gold I have set up? 15 Now when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?”

16 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

19 Then Nebuchadnezzar was furious with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and his attitude toward them changed. He ordered the furnace to be heated seven times hotter than usual 20 and commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. 21 So these men, wearing their robes, trousers, turbans and other clothes, were bound and thrown into the blazing furnace. 22 The king’s command was so urgent and the furnace so hot that the flames of the fire killed the soldiers who took up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, 23 and these three men, firmly tied, fell into the blazing furnace.

24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.” 25 He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.” 26 Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!”

So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire, 27 and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them.

Habakkuk 2:3-4

3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time - it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it. It will certainly come and will not delay. 4 See, the enemy is puffed up -his desires are not upright. But the righteous person will live by his faithfulness.

Mar 3:28-29

Mark 12:35-36

35 Jesus said, as he was teaching in the Temple, “How can the interpreters of the Law say that the Anointed One is the ‘son of David’? 36 For it was David himself in the Holy Spirit, who said, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, come sit at my right hand, until I making them your enemies a footstool under your feet.’"

Rom 6:3-4

Romans 8:9

9 But you [believers who are reading or hearing this] are not [focused] in the flesh but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. If anyone doesn’t have the Spirit of the Anointed One, then he [has not chosen Jesus as Lord and] does not belong to Him.

Rom 8:9

Romans 9:6-8

6 It is not as though the word of God was of no effect.

2 Cor 9:6-7

Galatians 3:24

24 So the Law was our guardian until the Anointed One came that we might be justified by faith.

Gal 3:24

Galatians 5:19-21

19Why, then, was the Law given at all? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. The Law was given through angels and entrusted to a mediator. 2A mediator, however, implies more than one party - but God is one. 21 Is the Law, therefore, opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law.

Gal 5:19-21

Ephesians 1:18-23

18 I pray that light would shine on the eyes of your heart so that you might see the destiny in God's calling of you, the amazing riches he has provided for those committed to him, 19 and the incredible greatness of his power in us believers. This is the same power he used 20 when he raised the Anointed One from the dead and seated him at his own right hand in heaven, 21 ranking far above every angelic prince, authority, power, and lord, and any other title that is named, either in this age or the one to come. 22 And God put all things under his feet and has made him head of all things for the sake of the church, 23 which is his body, that completes him who completes all things.

Hebrews 1:3

3 He is the glorious expression and exact image of the Father. And he has [completely] carried out all things [intended by the Father] by his word of power. When he purified us from our sins, he sat down on the right hand of the Majestic One.

Heb 1:3

Hebrews 6:1-2

1 So, let us leave the more basic principles of Christian doctrine, and move forward to complete [our education], not laying out again the foundation of turning away from dead works, faith toward God, 2 instruction on baptisms, laying on of hands, resurrection from the dead, and eternal judgment.

Heb 6:1-2

Hebrews 8:8-12

8 For, recognizing that lack [in the effectiveness of the Old Covenant], he [God] said to them [the Jewish people], “See, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah, 9 not the same as the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand and led them out of the Land of Egypt, for they did not continue in that covenant, and so I rejected them. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the House of Israel after those days, says the Lord. I will put my laws into their minds and I will inscribe them in their hearts. And I will be to them a God and they will be to me a people. 11 And it will not be that every man must say to his neighbor or his brother, ‘Know the Lord’, for all will know the Lord, from the least to the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and I will not remember their sins and attitudes.”

Heb 8:8-12

Hebrews 10:28

28 Under the Law of Moses, anyone would be sentenced to death without mercy on the basis of the testimony of two or three witnesses.

Heb 10:28

Hebrews 11:16

16 But their [the heroes of faith] expectation is for a better country, a heavenly one. And for that reason [that they trust God to deliver what he promised] God is not ashamed to be called their God and has prepared for them a city.

Heb 11:16

Hebrews 12:24

24 And to Jesus, the mediator of the new covenant and to the sprinkling of [Jesus’] blood [that ratifies the covenant], speaking better things than Abel.

2 Peter 2:4

4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment.

2 Pet 2:4

Revelation 20:11-15

11 Then I saw a great white throne and he who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Rev 20:11-15

Revelation 21:2

2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.
