The Blessing of Moses

1 Now this is the blessing with which Moses the man of God blessed the sons of Israel before his death. 2 He said, "The LORD came from Sinai, And dawned on them from Seir; He shone forth from Mount Paran, And He came from the midst of ten thousand holy ones; At His right hand there was flashing lightning for them.

3 "Indeed, He loves the people;

All Your holy ones are in Your hand,

And they followed in Your steps;

Everyone receives of Your words.

4 "Moses charged us with a law,

A possession for the assembly of Jacob.

5 "And He was king in Jeshurun,

When the heads of the people were gathered,

The tribes of Israel together.

6 "May Reuben live and not die,

Nor his men be few."

7 And this regarding Judah; so he said, "Hear, O LORD, the voice of Judah, And bring him to his people. With his hands he contended for them, And may You be a help against his adversaries."

8 Of Levi he said, "Let Your Thummim and Your Urim belong to Your godly man, Whom You proved at Massah, With whom You contended at the waters of Meribah;

9 Who said of his father and his mother,

`I did not consider them';

And he did not acknowledge his brothers,

Nor did he regard his own sons,

For they observed Your word,

And kept Your covenant.

10 "They shall teach Your ordinances to Jacob,

And Your law to Israel.

They shall put incense before You,

And whole burnt offerings on Your altar.

11 "O LORD, bless his substance,

And accept the work of his hands;

Shatter the loins of those who rise up against him,

And those who hate him, so that they will not rise again."

12 Of Benjamin he said, "May the beloved of the LORD dwell in security by Him, Who shields him all the day, And he dwells between His shoulders."

13 Of Joseph he said, "Blessed of the LORD be his land, With the choice things of heaven, with the dew, And from the deep lying beneath,

14 And with the choice yield of the sun,

And with the choice produce of the months.

15 "And with the best things of the ancient mountains,

And with the choice things of the everlasting hills,

16 And with the choice things of the earth and its fullness,

And the favor of Him who dwelt in the bush.

Let it come to the head of Joseph,

And to the crown of the head of the one distinguished among his brothers.

17 "As the firstborn of his ox, majesty is his,

And his horns are the horns of the wild ox;

With them he will push the peoples,

All at once, to the ends of the earth.

And those are the ten thousands of Ephraim,

And those are the thousands of Manasseh."

18 Of Zebulun he said, "Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going forth, And, Issachar, in your tents.

19 "They will call peoples to the mountain;

There they will offer righteous sacrifices;

For they will draw out the abundance of the seas,

And the hidden treasures of the sand."

20 Of Gad he said, "Blessed is the one who enlarges Gad; He lies down as a lion, And tears the arm, also the crown of the head.

21 "Then he provided the first part for himself,

For there the ruler's portion was reserved;

And he came with the leaders of the people;

He executed the justice of the LORD,

And His ordinances with Israel."

22 Of Dan he said, "Dan is a lion's whelp, That leaps forth from Bashan."

23 Of Naphtali he said, "O Naphtali, satisfied with favor, And full of the blessing of the LORD, Take possession of the sea and the south."

24 Of Asher he said, "More blessed than sons is Asher; May he be favored by his brothers, And may he dip his foot in oil.

25 "Your locks will be iron and bronze,

And according to your days, so will your leisurely walk be.

26 "There is none like the God of Jeshurun,

Who rides the heavens to your help,

And through the skies in His majesty.

27 "The eternal God is a dwelling place,

And underneath are the everlasting arms;

And He drove out the enemy from before you,

And said, `Destroy!'

28 "So Israel dwells in security,

The fountain of Jacob secluded,

In a land of grain and new wine;

His heavens also drop down dew.

29 "Blessed are you, O Israel;

Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD,

Who is the shield of your help

And the sword of your majesty!

So your enemies will cringe before you,

And you will tread upon their high places."

The Death of Moses

1 Now Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho. And the LORD showed him all the land, Gilead as far as Dan, 2 and all Naphtali and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah as far as the western F549 sea, 3 and the Negev and the plain in the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, as far as Zoar. 4 Then the LORD said to him, "This is the land which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, `I will give it to your descendants'; I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there." 5 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD. 6 And He buried him in the valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-peor; but no man knows his burial place to this day. 7 Although Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died, his eye was not dim, nor his vigor abated. 8 So the sons of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days; then the days of weeping and mourning for Moses came to an end.

9 Now Joshua the son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; and the sons of Israel listened to him and did as the LORD had commanded Moses. 10 Since that time no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face, 11 for all the signs and wonders which the LORD sent him to perform in the land of Egypt against Pharaoh, all his servants, and all his land, 12 and for all the mighty power and for all the great terror which Moses performed in the sight of all Israel.

Zophar Says, "The Triumph of the Wicked Is Short"

1 Then Zophar the Naamathite answered,

2 "Therefore my disquieting thoughts make me respond,

Even because of my inward agitation.

3 "I listened to the reproof which insults me,

And the spirit of my understanding makes me answer.

4 "Do you know this from of old,

From the establishment of man on earth,

5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short,

And the joy of the godless momentary?

6 "Though his loftiness reaches F207 the heavens,

And his head touches the clouds,

7 He perishes forever like his refuse;

Those who have seen him will say, `Where is he?'

8 "He flies away like a dream, and they cannot find him;

Even like a vision of the night he is chased away.

9 "The eye which saw him sees him no longer,

And his place no longer beholds him.

10 "His sons favor the poor,

And his hands give back his wealth.

11 "His bones are full of his youthful vigor,

But it lies down with him in the dust.

12 "Though evil is sweet in his mouth

And he hides it under his tongue,

13 Though he desires it and will not let it go,

But holds it in his mouth,

14 Yet his food in his stomach is changed

To the venom of cobras within him.

15 "He swallows riches,

But will vomit them up;

God will expel them from his belly.

16 "He sucks the poison of cobras;

The viper's tongue slays him.

17 "He does not look at the streams,

The rivers flowing with honey and curds.

18 "He returns what he has attained

And cannot swallow it;

As to the riches of his trading,

He cannot even enjoy them.

19 "For he has oppressed and forsaken the poor;

He has seized a house which he has not built.

20 "Because he knew no quiet within him,

He does not retain anything he desires.

21 "Nothing remains for him to devour,

Therefore his prosperity does not endure.

22 "In the fullness of his plenty he will be cramped;

The hand of everyone who suffers will come against him.

23 "When he fills his belly,

God will send His fierce anger on him

And will rain it on him while he is eating.

24 "He may flee from the iron weapon,

But the bronze bow will pierce him.

25 "It is drawn forth and comes out of his back,

Even the glittering point from his gall.

Terrors come upon him,

26 Complete darkness is held in reserve for his treasures,

And unfanned fire will devour him;

It will consume the survivor in his tent.

27 "The heavens will reveal his iniquity,

And the earth will rise up against him.

28 "The increase of his house will depart;

His possessions will flow away in the day of His anger.

29 "This is the wicked man's portion from God,

Even the heritage decreed to him by God."


 
 Book of Acts 
 8:1-25 - Click for Chapter Audio

1 Saul was in hearty agreement with putting him to death.

And on that day a great persecution began against the church in Jerusalem, and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. 2 Some devout men buried Stephen, and made loud lamentation over him. 3 But Saul began ravaging the church, entering house after house, and dragging off men and women, he would put them in prison.

Philip in Samaria

4 Therefore, those who had been scattered went about preaching F187 the word. 5 Philip went down to the city of Samaria and began proclaiming Christ to them. 6 The crowds with one accord were giving attention to what was said by Philip, as they heard and saw the signs which he was performing. 7 For in the case of many who had unclean spirits, they were coming out of them shouting with a loud voice; and many who had been paralyzed and lame were healed. 8 So there was much rejoicing in that city.

9 Now there was a man named Simon, who formerly was practicing magic in the city and astonishing the people of Samaria, claiming to be someone great; 10 and they all, from smallest to greatest, were giving attention to him, saying, "This man is what is called the Great Power of God." 11 And they were giving him attention because he had for a long time astonished them with his magic arts. 12 But when they believed Philip preaching the good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were being baptized, men and women alike. 13 Even Simon himself believed; and after being baptized, he continued on with Philip, and as he observed signs and great miracles taking place, he was constantly amazed.

14 Now when the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent them Peter and John, 15 who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. 16 For He had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then they began laying their hands on them, and they were receiving the Holy Spirit. 18 Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was bestowed through the laying on of the apostles' hands, he offered them money, 19 saying, "Give this authority to me as well, so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit." 20 But Peter said to him, "May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money! 21 "You have no part or portion in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. 22 "Therefore repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray the Lord that, if possible, the intention of your heart may be forgiven you. 23 "For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bondage of iniquity." 24 But Simon answered and said, "Pray to the Lord for me yourselves, so that nothing of what you have said may come upon me."

An Ethiopian Receives Christ

25 So, when they had solemnly testified and spoken the word of the Lord, they started back to Jerusalem, and were preaching the gospel to many villages of the Samaritans.
