Parshat: Devariym (Deuteronomy) 11:26 - 16:17
Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; 27 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of Yahuah Elohaykem, which I command you this day: 28 And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of Yahuah Elohaykem but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other elohiym, which ye have not known. 29 And it shall come to pass, when Yahuah Elohayka has brought you in unto the land whither you go to possess it, that you shall put the blessing upon Mount Geriziym, and the curse upon Mount Eyval. 30 Are they not on the other side of the Yardan, by the way where the sun goes down, in the land of the Kena`aniym, which dwell in the plain over against Gilgal, beside the plains of Moreh? 31 For ye shall pass over the Yardan to go in to possess the land which Yahuah Elohaykem gives you, and ye shall possess it, and dwell therein. 32 And ye shall guard to do את all the commandments and judgments which I set before you this day.
These are the commandments and judgments, which ye shall guard to do in the land, which Yahuah Elohai of your fathers gives you to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth. 2 Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their elohiym, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree: 3 And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their Asherah poles with fire; and ye shall hew down graven images of their elohiym and destroy names of them out of that place. 4 Ye shall not do so unto Yahuah Elohaykem. 5 But unto the place which Yahuah Elohaykem shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither you shall come: 6 And thither ye shall bring your ascending smoke offerings, and your sacrifices, and את your tithes, and את heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks: 7 And there ye shall eat before Yahuah Elohaykem, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein Yahuah Elohayka has blessed you. 8 Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes. 9 For ye are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which Yahuah Elohaykem gives you. 10 But when ye go over the Yardan, and dwell in the land which Yahuah Elohaykem gives you to inherit, and when he gives you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety; 11 Then there shall be a place which Yahuah Elohaykem shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring את all that I command you; your ascending smoke offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto Yahuah: 12 And ye shall rejoice before Yahuah Elohaykem, ye, and your sons, and your daughters, and your menservants, and your maidservants, and the Leviyiy that is within your gates; forasmuch as he has no part nor inheritance with you.
13 Guard yourself that you offer not your ascending smoke offerings in every place that you see: 14 But in the place which Yahuah shall choose in one of your tribes, there you shall offer your ascending smoke offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you. 15 Notwithstanding you may kill and eat flesh in all your gates, whatsoever your soul lusts after, according to the blessing of Yahuah Elohayka which he has given you: the unclean and the clean may eat thereof, as of the roebuck, and as of the deer. 16 Only ye shall not eat the blood; ye shall pour it upon the earth as water.
17 You may not eat within your gates the tithe of your grain, or of your wine, or of your oil, or the firstlings of your herds or of your flock, nor any of your vows which you vow, nor your freewill offerings, or heave offering of your hand: 18 But you must eat them before Yahuah Elohayka in the place which Yahuah Elohayka shall choose, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your manservant, and your maidservant, and the Leviyiy that is within your gates: and you shall rejoice before Yahuah Elohayka in all that you put your hands unto. 19 Guard yourself that you forsake not the Leviyiy as long as you live upon the earth.
20 When Yahuah Elohayka shall enlarge your border, as he has promised you, and you shall say, I will eat flesh, because your soul longs to eat flesh; you may eat flesh, whatsoever your soul lusts after. 21 If the place which Yahuah Elohayka has chosen to put his name there be too far from you, then you shall kill of your herd and of your flock, which Yahuah has given you, as I have commanded you, and you shall eat in your gates whatsoever your soul lusts after. 22 Even as the roebuck and the deer are eaten, so you shall eat them: the unclean and the clean shall eat of them alike. 23 Only be sure that you eat not the blood: for the blood is the life; and you may not eat the life with the flesh. 24 You shall not eat it; you shall pour it upon the earth as water. 25 You shall not eat it; that it may go well with you, and with your children after you, when you shall do that which is right in the sight of Yahuah. 26 Only your holy things which you have, and your vows, you shall take, and go unto the place which Yahuah shall choose: 27 And you shall offer your ascending smoke offerings, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar of Yahuah Elohayka: and the blood of your sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of Yahuah Elohayka, and you shall eat the flesh. 28 Guard and hear את all these words which I command you, that it may go well with you, and with your children after you forever, when you do that which is good and right in the sight of Yahuah Elohayka.
29 When Yahuah Elohayka shall cut off the nations from before you, whither you go to possess them, and you succeed them, and dwell in their land; 30 Take heed to yourself that you be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before you; and that you inquire not after their elohiym, saying: How did these nations serve their elohiym? Even so will I do likewise. 31 You shall not do so unto Yahuah Elohayka: for every abomination to Yahuah, which he hates, have they done unto their elohiym; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their elohiym. 32 את What thing soever I command you, guard to do it: you shall not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spoke unto you, saying: Let us go after other elohiym, which you have not known, and let us serve them; 3 You shall not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for Yahuah Elohaykem proves you, to know whether ye love Yahuah Elohaykem with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after Yahuah Elohaykem, and fear him, and guard his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. 5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he has spoken to turn you away from Yahuah Elohaykem, which brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust you out of the way which Yahuah Elohayka commanded you to walk in. So shall you put the evil away from the midst of you.
6 If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or the woman of your bosom, or your friend, which is as your own soul, entice you secretly, saying: Let us go and serve other elohiym, which you have not known, you, nor your fathers; 7 Namely, of the elohiym of the people which are round about you, nigh unto you, or far off from you, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; 8 You shall not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall your eye pity him, neither shall you spare, neither shall you conceal him: 9 But you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. 10 And you shall stone him with stones, that he dies; because he has sought to thrust you away from Yahuah Elohayka, which brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, from the house of bondage. 11 And all Yashar’el shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.
12 If you shall hear say in one of your cities, which Yahuah Elohayka has given you to dwell there, saying: 13 Certain men, the children of Beliya`al, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying: Let us go and serve other elohiym, which ye have not known; 14 Then shall you inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought among you; 15 You shall surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.
16 And you shall gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shall burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for Yahuah Elohayka: and it shall be a heap forever; it shall not be built again. 17 And there shall cleave naught of the cursed thing to your hand: that Yahuah may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and show you mercy, and have compassion upon you, and multiply you, as he has sworn seven oaths unto your fathers; 18 When you shall hearken to the voice of Yahuah Elohayka, to guard all his commandments which I command you this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of Yahuah Elohayka.
Ye are the children of Yahuah Elohaykem: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead. 2 For you are a holy people unto Yahuah Elohayka, and Yahuah has chosen you to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.
3 You shall not eat any abominable thing. 4 These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat, 5 The deer, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois. 6 And every beast that parts the hoof, and cleaves the cleft into two claws, and chews the cud among the beasts, that ye shall eat. 7 Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel, and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; therefore they are unclean unto you. 8 And the swine, because it divides the hoof, yet chews not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcass.
9 These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat: 10 And whatsoever has not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is unclean unto you.
11 Of all clean birds ye shall eat. 12 But these are they of which ye shall not eat: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the osprey, 13 And the glede, and the kite, and the vulture after his kind, 14 And את every raven after his kind, 15 And את the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind, 16 The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan, 17 And the pelican, and the gier eagle, and the cormorant, 18 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat. 19 And every creeping thing that flies is unclean unto you: they shall not be eaten. 20 But of all clean fowls ye may eat.
21 Ye shall not eat of anything that dies of itself: you shall give it unto the stranger that is in your gates, that he may eat it; or you may sell it unto an alien: for you are a holy people unto Yahuah Elohayka. You shall not seethe a kid in his mother's milk. 22 You shall truly tithe את all the increase of your seed, that the field brings forth year by year. 23 And you shall eat before Yahuah Elohayka, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of your grain, of your wine, and of your oil, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks; that you may learn to fear Yahuah Elohayka always. 24 And if the way be too long for you, so that you are not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from you, which Yahuah Elohayka shall choose to set his name there, when Yahuah Elohayka has blessed you: 25 Then shall you turn it into money, and bind up the money in your hand, and shall go unto the place which Yahuah Elohayka shall choose: 26 And you shall bestow that money for whatsoever your soul lusts after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever your soul desires: and you shall eat there before Yahuah Elohayka, and you shall rejoice, you, and your household, 27 And the Leviyiy that is within your gates; you shall not forsake him; for he has no part nor inheritance with you.
28 At the end of three years you shall bring forth all the tithe of your increase the same year, and shall lay it up within your gates: 29 And the Leviyiy, (because he has no part nor inheritance with you,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are within your gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that Yahuah Elohayka may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.
At the end of every seven years you shall make a release. 2 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lends ought unto his neighbor shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbor, or of his brother, because it is called Yahuah’s release. 3 Of a foreigner you may exact it again: but that which is yours with your brother your hand shall release; 4 Save when there shall be no poor among you; for Yahuah shall greatly bless you in the land which Yahuah Elohayka gives you for an inheritance to possess it: 5 Only if you carefully hearken unto the voice of Yahuah Elohayka, to guard to do all these commandments which I command you this day. 6 For Yahuah Elohayka blesses you, as he promised you: and you shall lend unto many nations, but you shall not borrow; and you shall reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over you.
7 If there be among you a poor man of one of your brethren within any of your gates in your land which Yahuah Elohayka gives you, you shall not harden your heart, nor shut your hand from your poor brother: 8 But you shall open your hand wide unto him, and shall surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wants. 9 Beware that there be not a thought in your wicked heart, saying: The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and your eye be evil against your poor brother, and you give him naught; and he cry unto El-Yahuah against you, and it be sin unto you. 10 You shall surely give him, and your heart shall not be grieved when you give unto him: because that for this thing Yahuah Elohayka shall bless you in all your works, and in all that you put your hand unto. 11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command you, saying: You shall open your hand wide unto your brother, to your poor, and to your needy, in your land.
12 And if your brother, an Ivriy man, or an Ivriy woman, be sold unto you, and serve you six years; then in the seventh year you shall let him go free from you. 13 And when you send him out free from you, you shall not let him go away empty: 14 You shall furnish him liberally out of your flock, and out of your floor, and out of your winepress: of that wherewith Yahuah Elohayka has blessed you, you shall give unto him. 15 And you shall remember that you were a bondman in the land of Mitsrayim, and Yahuah Elohayka redeemed you: therefore I command you this thing today. 16 And it shall be, if he says unto you, I will not go away from you; because he loves you and your house, because he is well with you; 17 Then you shall take an aul, and thrust it through his ear unto the door, and he shall be your servant forever. And also unto your maidservant you shall do likewise. 18 It shall not seem hard unto you, when you send him away free from you; for he has been worth a double hired servant to you, in serving you six years: and Yahuah Elohayka shall bless you in all that you do.
19 All the firstling males that come of your herd and of your flock you shall sanctify unto Yahuah Elohayka: you shall do no work with the firstling of your bullock, nor shear the firstling of your sheep. 20 You shall eat it before Yahuah Elohayka year by year in the place which Yahuah shall choose, you and your household. 21 And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, you shall not sacrifice it unto Yahuah Elohayka. 22 You shall eat it within your gates: the unclean and the clean person shall eat it alike, as the roebuck, and as the deer. 23 Only you shall not eat the blood thereof; you shall pour it upon the ground as water.
Guard the month of Aviyv, and keep the Pecach unto Yahuah Elohayka: for in the month of Aviyv Yahuah Elohayka brought you forth out of Mitsrayim by night. 2 You shall therefore sacrifice the Pecach unto Yahuah Elohayka, of the flock and the herd, in the place which Yahuah shall choose to place his name there. 3 You shall eat no chamets with it; seven days shall you eat matstsah therewith, even the bread of affliction; for you came forth out of the land of Mitsrayim in haste: that you may remember the day when you came forth out of the land of Mitsrayim all the days of your life. 4 And there shall be no chamets seen with you in all your coast seven days; neither shall there anything of the flesh, which you sacrificed the first day at evening, remain all night until the morning. 5 You may not sacrifice the Pecach within any of your gates, which Yahuah Elohayka gives you: 6 But at the place which Yahuah Elohayka shall choose to place his name in, there you shall sacrifice the Pecach at evening, at the going down of the sun, at the season that you came forth out of Mitsrayim. 7 And you shall roast and eat it in the place which Yahuah Elohayka shall choose: and you shall turn in the morning and go unto your tents. 8 Six days you shall eat matstsah: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yahuah Elohayka: you shall do no work therein.
9 Seven weeks you shall number unto you: begin to number the seven weeks from such time as you begin to put the sickle to the grain. 10 And you shall keep the Feast of Shavu’oth unto Yahuah Elohayka with a tribute of a freewill offering of your hand, which you shall give unto Yahuah Elohayka, according as Yahuah Elohayka has blessed you: 11 And you shall rejoice before Yahuah Elohayka, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your manservant, and your maidservant, and the Leviyiy that is within your gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which Yahuah Elohayka has chosen to place his name there. 12 And you shall remember that you were a bondman in Mitsrayim: and you shall guard and do these statutes.
13 You shall keep the Feast of Cukkoth seven days, after that you have gathered in your threshing floor and your wine: 14 And you shall rejoice in your feast, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your manservant, and your maidservant, and the Leviyiy, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within your gates. 15 Seven days shall you keep a solemn feast unto Yahuah Elohayka in the place which Yahuah shall choose: because Yahuah Elohayka shall bless you in all your increase, and in all the works of your hands, therefore you shall surely rejoice.
16 Three times in a year shall all your males appear before Yahuah Elohayka in the place which he shall choose; in the Feast of Matstsah, and in the Feast of Shavu’oth, and in the Feast of Cukkoth: and they shall not appear before Yahuah empty: 17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of Yahuah Elohayka which he has given you.
Haftorah: Yesha`yahu (Isaiah) 54:11 - 55:5
O you afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay your stones with fair colors, and lay your foundations with caphires. 12 And I will make your windows of agates, and your gates of carbuncles, and all your borders of pleasant stones. 13 And all your children shall be taught of Yahuah; and great shall be the peace of your children. 14 In righteousness shall you be established: you shall be far from oppression; for you shall not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near you. 15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against you shall fall for your sake. 16 Behold, I have created the smith that blows the coals in the fire, and that brings forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Yahuah, and their righteousness is of me, says Yahuah.
O, everyone that thirsts, come ye to the waters, and he that has no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? And your labor for that which satisfies not? Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. 3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will cut an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. 4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people. 5 Behold, you shall call a nation that you know not, and nations that knew not you shall run unto you because of Yahuah Elohayka, and for the Holy One of Yashar’el; for he has glorified you.
Besorah: Yochanon (John) 16:1 - 17:26
These את things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time comes, that whosoever kills you will think that he does Elohiym service. 3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. 5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asks me: Whither do you go? 6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow has filled your heart. 7 Nevertheless I tell you the Truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13 Howbeit when he, the Ruach Emeth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine and shall show it unto you. 15 All things that the Father has are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you. 16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father. 17 Then said some of his Talmidiym among themselves: What is this that he says unto us: A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and: Because I go to the Father? 18 They said therefore: What is this that he says: A little while? We cannot tell what he says. 19 Now Yahusha knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them: Do ye inquire among yourselves of that I said: A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me? 20 Amein, Amein, I say unto you: That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. 21 A woman when she is in travail has sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembers no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. 22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man takes from you. 23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Amein, Amein, I say unto you: Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. 24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. 25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time comes, when I shall no longer speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall show you plainly of the Father. 26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: 27 For the Father himself loves you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came from Elohiym. 28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. 29 His Talmidiym said unto him: Lo, now speak you plainly, and speak no proverb. 30 Now are we sure that you know all things and need not that any man should ask you: by this we believe that you came forth from Elohiym. 31 Yahusha answered them: Do ye now believe? 32 Behold, the hour comes, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
These words spoke Yahusha, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said,
Father, the hour is come; glorify your Son, that your Son also may glorify you: 2 As you have given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as you have given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true Yah, and Yahusha Ha’Mashiach, whom you have sent. 4 I have glorified you on the earth: I have finished the work which you gave me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify me with your own self with the glory which I had with you before the world was. 6 את I have manifested your name unto the men which you gave me out of the world: yours they were, and you gave them me; and they have guarded your word. 7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever you have given me are of you. 8 For I have given unto them the words which you gave me; and they have received them and have known surely that I came out from you, and they have believed that you did send me. 9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which you have given me; for they are yours. 10 And all mine are yours, and yours are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, guard them by your name, the same name which you have given me, that they may be yachad as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I guarded them in your name: those that you gave me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 And now come I to you; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should guard them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through your Truth: your Word is Truth. 18 As you have sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the Truth. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be yachad; as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be yachad in us: that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 And the glory which you gave me I have given them; that they may be yachad, even as we are yachad: 23 I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that you have sent me, and have loved them, as you have loved me. 24 Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you have given me: for you loved me before the foundation of the world. 25 O Righteous Father, the world has not known you: but I have known you, and these have known that you have sent me. 26 And I have declared unto them your name and will declare it: that the love wherewith you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.
