1: And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded.
2: If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.
3: If a woman also vow a vow unto the LORD, and bind herself by a bond, being in her father's house in her youth;
4: And her father hear her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her; then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand.
5: But if her father disallow her in the day that he heareth; not any of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand: and the LORD shall forgive her, because her father disallowed her.
6: And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul;
7: And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her in the day that he heard it: then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand.
8: But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard it; then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound her soul, of none effect: and the LORD shall forgive her.
9: But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced, wherewith they have bound their souls, shall stand against her.
10: And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by a bond with an oath;
11: And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her, and disallowed her not: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she bound her soul shall stand.
12: But if her husband hath utterly made them void on the day he heard them; then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, shall not stand: her husband hath made them void; and the LORD shall forgive her.
13: Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her husband may establish it, or her husband may make it void.
14: But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which are upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his peace at her in the day that he heard them.
15: But if he shall any ways make them void after that he hath heard them; then he shall bear her iniquity.
16: These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, between the father and his daughter, being yet in her youth in her father's house.
1: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2: Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.
3: And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm some of yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites, and avenge the LORD of Midian.
4: Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war.
5: So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.
6: And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his hand.
7: And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males.
8: And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.
9: And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods.
10: And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire.
11: And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of men and of beasts.
12: And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of Moab, which are by Jordan near Jericho.
13: And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp.
14: And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle.
15: And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?
16: Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.
17: Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
18: But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.
19: And do ye abide without the camp seven days: whosoever hath killed any person, and whosoever hath touched any slain, purify both yourselves and your captives on the third day, and on the seventh day.
20: And purify all your raiment, and all that is made of skins, and all work of goats' hair, and all things made of wood.
21: And Eleazar the priest said unto the men of war which went to the battle, This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD commanded Moses;
22: Only the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead,
23: Every thing that may abide the fire, ye shall make it go through the fire, and it shall be clean: nevertheless it shall be purified with the water of separation: and all that abideth not the fire ye shall make go through the water.
24: And ye shall wash your clothes on the seventh day, and ye shall be clean, and afterward ye shall come into the camp.
25: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
26: Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of beast, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the chief fathers of the congregation:
27: And divide the prey into two parts; between them that took the war upon them, who went out to battle, and between all the congregation:
28: And levy a tribute unto the LORD of the men of war which went out to battle: one soul of five hundred, both of the persons, and of the beeves, and of the asses, and of the sheep:
29: Take it of their half, and give it unto Eleazar the priest, for an heave offering of the LORD.
30: And of the children of Israel's half, thou shalt take one portion of fifty, of the persons, of the beeves, of the asses, and of the flocks, of all manner of beasts, and give them unto the Levites, which keep the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD.
31: And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.
32: And the booty, being the rest of the prey which the men of war had caught, was six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five thousand sheep,
33: And threescore and twelve thousand beeves,
34: And threescore and one thousand asses,
35: And thirty and two thousand persons in all, of women that had not known man by lying with him.
36: And the half, which was the portion of them that went out to war, was in number three hundred thousand and seven and thirty thousand and five hundred sheep:
37: And the LORD's tribute of the sheep was six hundred and threescore and fifteen.
38: And the beeves were thirty and six thousand; of which the LORD's tribute was threescore and twelve.
39: And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred; of which the LORD's tribute was threescore and one.
40: And the persons were sixteen thousand; of which the LORD's tribute was thirty and two persons.
41: And Moses gave the tribute, which was the LORD's heave offering, unto Eleazar the priest, as the LORD commanded Moses.
42: And of the children of Israel's half, which Moses divided from the men that warred,
43: (Now the half that pertained unto the congregation was three hundred thousand and thirty thousand and seven thousand and five hundred sheep,
44: And thirty and six thousand beeves,
45: And thirty thousand asses and five hundred,
46: And sixteen thousand persons;)
47: Even of the children of Israel's half, Moses took one portion of fifty, both of man and of beast, and gave them unto the Levites, which kept the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.
48: And the officers which were over thousands of the host, the captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds, came near unto Moses:
49: And they said unto Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of the men of war which are under our charge, and there lacketh not one man of us.
50: We have therefore brought an oblation for the LORD, what every man hath gotten, of jewels of gold, chains, and bracelets, rings, earrings, and tablets, to make an atonement for our souls before the LORD.
51: And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, even all wrought jewels.
52: And all the gold of the offering that they offered up to the LORD, of the captains of thousands, and of the captains of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels.
53: (For the men of war had taken spoil, every man for himself.)
54: And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and brought it into the tabernacle of the congregation, for a memorial for the children of Israel before the LORD.
1: And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders,
2: And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?
3: And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer me:
4: The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men?
5: And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not?
6: But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet.
7: And they answered, that they could not tell whence it was.
8: And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
9: Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time.
10: And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty.
11: And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.
12: And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.
13: Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.
14: But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.
15: So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?
16: He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.
17: And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?
18: Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
19: And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.
20: And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.
21: And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly:
22: Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?
23: But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me?
24: Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's.
25: And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.
26: And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.
27: Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him,
28: Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
29: There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children.
30: And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.
31: And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died.
32: Last of all the woman died also.
33: Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.
34: And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:
35: But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
36: Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
37: Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
38: For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.
39: Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well said.
40: And after that they durst not ask him any question at all.
41: And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David's son?
42: And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
43: Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
44: David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?
45: Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples,
46: Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;
47: Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.
