1: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2: Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan; (this is the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:)
3: Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward:
4: And your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof shall be from the south to Kadeshbarnea, and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon:
5: And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea.
6: And as for the western border, ye shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your west border.
7: And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall point out for you mount Hor:
8: From mount Hor ye shall point out your border unto the entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the border shall be to Zedad:
9: And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be at Hazarenan: this shall be your north border.
10: And ye shall point out your east border from Hazarenan to Shepham:
11: And the coast shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward:
12: And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the goings out of it shall be at the salt sea: this shall be your land with the coasts thereof round about.
13: And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, This is the land which ye shall inherit by lot, which the LORD commanded to give unto the nine tribes, and to the half tribe:
14: For the tribe of the children of Reuben according to the house of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad according to the house of their fathers, have received their inheritance; and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance:
15: The two tribes and the half tribe have received their inheritance on this side Jordan near Jericho eastward, toward the sunrising.
16: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
17: These are the names of the men which shall divide the land unto you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.
18: And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to divide the land by inheritance.
19: And the names of the men are these: Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.
20: And of the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud.
21: Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon.
22: And the prince of the tribe of the children of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli.
23: The prince of the children of Joseph, for the tribe of the children of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod.
24: And the prince of the tribe of the children of Ephraim, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan.
25: And the prince of the tribe of the children of Zebulun, Elizaphan the son of Parnach.
26: And the prince of the tribe of the children of Issachar, Paltiel the son of Azzan.
27: And the prince of the tribe of the children of Asher, Ahihud the son of Shelomi.
28: And the prince of the tribe of the children of Naphtali, Pedahel the son of Ammihud.
29: These are they whom the LORD commanded to divide the inheritance unto the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.
1: And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying,
2: Command the children of Israel, that they give unto the Levites of the inheritance of their possession cities to dwell in; and ye shall give also unto the Levites suburbs for the cities round about them.
3: And the cities shall they have to dwell in; and the suburbs of them shall be for their cattle, and for their goods, and for all their beasts.
4: And the suburbs of the cities, which ye shall give unto the Levites, shall reach from the wall of the city and outward a thousand cubits round about.
5: And ye shall measure from without the city on the east side two thousand cubits, and on the south side two thousand cubits, and on the west side two thousand cubits, and on the north side two thousand cubits; and the city shall be in the midst: this shall be to them the suburbs of the cities.
6: And among the cities which ye shall give unto the Levites there shall be six cities for refuge, which ye shall appoint for the manslayer, that he may flee thither: and to them ye shall add forty and two cities.
7: So all the cities which ye shall give to the Levites shall be forty and eight cities: them shall ye give with their suburbs.
8: And the cities which ye shall give shall be of the possession of the children of Israel: from them that have many ye shall give many; but from them that have few ye shall give few: every one shall give of his cities unto the Levites according to his inheritance which he inheriteth.
9: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
10: Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come over Jordan into the land of Canaan;
11: Then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for you; that the slayer may flee thither, which killeth any person at unawares.
12: And they shall be unto you cities for refuge from the avenger; that the manslayer die not, until he stand before the congregation in judgment.
13: And of these cities which ye shall give six cities shall ye have for refuge.
14: Ye shall give three cities on this side Jordan, and three cities shall ye give in the land of Canaan, which shall be cities of refuge.
15: These six cities shall be a refuge, both for the children of Israel, and for the stranger, and for the sojourner among them: that every one that killeth any person unawares may flee thither.
16: And if he smite him with an instrument of iron, so that he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.
17: And if he smite him with throwing a stone, wherewith he may die, and he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.
18: Or if he smite him with an hand weapon of wood, wherewith he may die, and he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.
19: The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when he meeteth him, he shall slay him.
20: But if he thrust him of hatred, or hurl at him by laying of wait, that he die;
21: Or in enmity smite him with his hand, that he die: he that smote him shall surely be put to death; for he is a murderer: the revenger of blood shall slay the murderer, when he meeteth him.
22: But if he thrust him suddenly without enmity, or have cast upon him any thing without laying of wait,
23: Or with any stone, wherewith a man may die, seeing him not, and cast it upon him, that he die, and was not his enemy, neither sought his harm:
24: Then the congregation shall judge between the slayer and the revenger of blood according to these judgments:
25: And the congregation shall deliver the slayer out of the hand of the revenger of blood, and the congregation shall restore him to the city of his refuge, whither he was fled: and he shall abide in it unto the death of the high priest, which was anointed with the holy oil.
26: But if the slayer shall at any time come without the border of the city of his refuge, whither he was fled;
27: And the revenger of blood find him without the borders of the city of his refuge, and the revenger of blood kill the slayer; he shall not be guilty of blood:
28: Because he should have remained in the city of his refuge until the death of the high priest: but after the death of the high priest the slayer shall return into the land of his possession.
29: So these things shall be for a statute of judgment unto you throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
30: Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses: but one witness shall not testify against any person to cause him to die.
31: Moreover ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of death: but he shall be surely put to death.
32: And ye shall take no satisfaction for him that is fled to the city of his refuge, that he should come again to dwell in the land, until the death of the priest.
33: So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.
34: Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel.
1: Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.
2: And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.
3: Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.
4: And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.
5: And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.
6: And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude.
7: Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.
8: And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.
9: And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
10: And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.
11: And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
12: And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.
13: And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
14: And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.
15: And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
16: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
17: And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:
18: For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
19: And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
20: Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
21: But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.
22: And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!
23: And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.
24: And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.
25: And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.
26: But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.
27: For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.
28: Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.
29: And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;
30: That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
31: And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
32: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
33: And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.
34: And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.
35: And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.
36: Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
37: For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.
38: And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.
39: And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.
40: And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.
41: And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
42: Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
43: And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.
44: And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
45: And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,
46: And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
47: And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.
48: But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
49: When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
50: And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.
51: And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.
52: Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
53: When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
54: Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest's house. And Peter followed afar off.
55: And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.
56: But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.
57: And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.
58: And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.
59: And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean.
60: And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
61: And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
62: And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.
63: And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.
64: And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?
65: And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.
66: And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,
67: Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:
68: And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.
69: Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.
70: Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.
71: And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
