psalm 107

Praise ye the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
  Let the redeemed of the Lord, whom he hath redeemed from the enemy's hand,
  Those who gathered the lands of the east and west, north and south.
  They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.
  Hungry and thirsty, their soul in them desfalecia.6 And they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their difficulties.
  And he led them by the right way, we might go to a city of habitation.
  Praise the LORD for his goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men.
  Because he got fed the thirsty soul and filled the hungry soul of goods.
  Such as sit in darkness and the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;
  Because they rebelled against the words of God and despised the counsel of the Most High.
  So he brought down their heart with labor; They stumbled, and there was none to help them.
  They cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their difficulties.
  He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death; and broke their prisons.
  Praise the LORD for his goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men.
  For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of ferro.17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
  Their soul abhorred all food, and came to the gates of death.
  They cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.
  He sent his word and healed them; and delivered them from their destructions.
  Praise the LORD for his goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men.
 And let the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters.
  These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
  For it commandeth, and raises the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves.
 Ascend to heaven; go down to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
  Walk and stagger like a drunk, and lost all tino.28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble; and brought them out of their difficulties.
  He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof.
  Then are they glad because they be quiet; so bringeth them to their desired haven.
  Praise the LORD for his goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men.
  Exalt him in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
  He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the springs into dry ground;
  A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
  He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into springs.
  And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, to build up a city for habitation;
  And sow the fields and plant vineyards, which yield fruits of increase.
  Also blesses them, so that they are multiplied greatly; and his cattle not diminui.39 Then they fall toward slaughter, oppression, and grief and sorrow.
  Pours contempt upon princes and makes them wander in the wilderness where there is no path.
  However deliver the needy from oppression, in a high place, and multiplies families like a flock.
  The righteous shall see, and shall rejoice, and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
  Who is wise will observe these things, and they will understand the mercies of the Lord.

CHAPTER 9 The covenant that God made with Noah

And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth.
  And the fear of you and the dread of you shall come upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air; everything that moves on the earth, and all the fish of the sea, into your hand are they delivered.
Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; all I have given you as verde.4 herb But flesh with its life, that is, its blood, you shall not eat.
 Surely I require your blood, the blood of your lives; the hand of every beast will I require; as well as the hand of man, and of his brother's hand each require the life of man. Whoever sheds man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed; for God made man in his own image.
  But ye fruitful and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
  And God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying:
 And, behold, I establish my covenant with you and with your seed after you.
  And with every living creature that is with you, birds, cattle, and the entire land animal with you; with all that came out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
  And I establish my covenant with you, which will no longer be destroyed all flesh by the flood waters, and that there will be no flood to destroy the earth.
  And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you, and between every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations.
  The I set my rainbow in the clouds; this shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
  And it shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, the bow appears in the clouds.

Solomon prays to God I Kings 8

And now, O God of Israel, let it be your word you said to your servant David my father.
  But in God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens can not contain thee, how much less this house that I have built.
  Volve you therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which thy servant prays before thee.
  That thine eyes may be open night and day toward this house, this place of which thou hast said, My name shall be there; to hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall pray in this place.
 Hear thou therefore the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they pray toward this place; and hear thou in thy dwelling place in heaven; hear, forgive.
 If any man trespass against his neighbor, and they put on him oath of cursing, making him swear, and the oath come before thine altar in this house,
  Then hear thou in heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, condemning the wicked, to bring his way upon his own head, and justifying the righteous, to give him according to his righteousness.

Lord, You have searched me and known me.
  You know when I sit and when I rise; by far understand my thought.
 Fences my going out and my lying down; and art acquainted with all my ways.
 There is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, You know it. Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; so high that I can not attain.
  Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy face?
  If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there; if you in hell my bed, behold, thou art there.
 If I take the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the edges of the sea,
  Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
  If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
  Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: darkness and light are the same thing for you;
  For you created my inmost; knit me in my mother's womb.
  I praise you because of a fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
  My frame was not hidden, as in the occult was made, and woven together in the depths of terra.16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; and in thy book all my members were written; which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
17 How precious to me are, O God, your thoughts! How great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand; when awake, I am still with you.
19 O God, you certainly kill the wicked; be ye therefore from me, you bloodthirsty men.
20 For they speak against you wickedly; and thine enemies take thy name in vain.
21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate you, and not grieve because of that rise up against thee?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them mine enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts.
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

The Prophet's Book JONAS

And word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying:
  Arise, go to Nineveh, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.
  But Jonah rose up to flee the presence of the LORD to Tarshish. And down to Joppa, he found a ship going to Tarshish; paid therefore its passage, and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of the Lord.
  But the Lord sent a great wind into the sea, and there was a heavy storm at sea, and the ship was about to ship, to lighten its weight; But Jonah had gone down into the hold of the ship, and he lay, and was fast asleep.
 And the shipmaster came up to him, and said unto him, What meanest thou, sleeper? Arise, call upon thy God; so maybe he will think upon us that we perish not.
  And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us cast lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. And they cast lots, and the lot fell on Jonah.
  Then they told him: Declare unto us pray thee, for whose cause this evil is upon us. What is your occupation? Where have you come? What do you land? And what people art thou?
  He said to them: I am a Hebrew, and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the dry land.
  Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him, Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the presence of Yahweh, because he had told them.
  And they said unto him, What shall we thee, that the sea may be calm? Because the sea was becoming increasingly stormy.
  And he said unto them, Take me up and throw me into the sea, and the sea be calm unto you: because I know that for my sake this great tempest you.
  However, the men rowed, to turn the ship to land, but they could not: for the sea grew embravecendo increasingly against them.
  They cried unto the LORD, and said, Oh, Lord! We beseech thee, that not perish for this man's life, and lay not upon us innocent blood; for thou, LORD, hast done as it pleased thee.
  So they took up Jonah, and cast him into the sea, and the sea ceased from its fúria.16 feared, for these men to the Lord with great fear; and offered sacrifice unto the LORD, and made vows.
  He has therefore prepared the Lord prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah; And Jonah was three days and three nights in the fish's belly.

  Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God out of the fish's belly.
  And I said: In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me; the belly of hell cried I, and you heard my voice.
  For thou hast cast me into the deep, in the heart of the seas, and the floods surrounded me; all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.
  And I said, I am cast out of thy sight; but I will look again toward thy holy temple.
  The waters surrounded me to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.
6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the land ended me forever with her bars; but you brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.
  When fainted within me my soul, I remembered the LORD; and came in unto thee I pray in your holy temple.
  They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
  But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; which voted pay. The Lord is salvation. Spake the Lord to fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
  LORD came unto the word Jonah the second time, saying:
  Arise, and go to Nineveh and preach against it the message that I tell you.
 And Jonas arose, and went to Nineveh according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey. And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried and said: Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.
  So the people of Nineveh believed God; and proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the smallest.
  This word came unto the king of Nineveh; and he rose from his throne, and took his garments, and covered himself with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.
  And it caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the king and his lords decree, saying, Let neither man nor beast, neither cattle nor sheep, taste any thing, nor let them not feed, nor drink water;
  But man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily to God, and let them turn every one from his evil way and from the violence that is in their hands.
  Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and make the turn from his fierce anger, so that we perish not?
  And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil which he announced would do to them, and did not.

  BUT it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was angry.
  And he prayed unto the LORD, and said, Ah! MR! It was not this my saying, still in my country? That's why I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and of great kindness, and repentest from evil.
  I pray thee, O LORD, take my life, because it is better for me to die than to live.
  And the Lord said: You do well to be angry as well?
  So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east; and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shade, to see what would happen to the city.
  And did the LORD God prepared a gourd, and it come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief; and Jonas was exceeding glad for the gourd.
  But God prepared a worm, the day after ascending of the dawn, which smote the gourd, and it withered.
  It happened, when the sun arose, God prepared a sultry east wind, and the sun struck the head of Jonas; and he fainted, and wished with all his soul to die, saying, is better for me to die than to live.
  God said to Jonah: You do well to be angry for the gourd? And I said, I do well to be angry to death.
 And the LORD said, thou hast had pity on the gourd, which not labored, neither didst grow, which was born in a night and perished in a night;
  And should not I have compassion on Nineveh where they are over one hundred and twenty thousand men that can not discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?

 And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, The LORD liveth the God of Israel, before whom I stand, these years neither dew nor rain will be, but according to my word.
 Then came to him the word of the LORD, saying,
 Get thee hence, and go eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.
 And it shall be that you will drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.
 So he went and did according to the word of the LORD; he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.
 And the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning; and bread and flesh in the evening; and drank of the brook. And it came to pass after days, that the brook dried up, because there was no rain in earth.8 Then came to him the word of the LORD, saying,  Arise, and go to Zarephath, which is by Zidon, and dwell there; behold, I have commanded there a widow woman to sustain thee.
 And he arose, and went to Zarephath; and came to the gate, behold, there was a widow gathering sticks; and he called her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a vessel some water to drink.
 And she was going to bring it, he called her and said, Fetch me now, a morsel of bread in thine hand.
 And she said, As the LORD liveth thy God, which have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse; and behold gathering two sticks, and I will prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: But do it first for me a little cake, and bring it unto me; after make for thee and for thy son.
 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, and the cruse of oil fail, until the day the Lord sends rain on the earth.
 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and did eat it, and he, and her house many days.
The pot of meal shall not ended, and the jar of oil did not fail; according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.
 And after these things came to pass fell ill the son of the woman, mistress of the house; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left.
 And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with you, man of God? It came to me to bring my iniquity to remembrance, and to slay my son?
 And he said, Give me your son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him on his bed,  And he cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, even to this widow with whom I stay, afflicted, by slaying her son?
 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, I pray thee that this child's soul come into him.
 And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the boy's soul came into him again, and he revived.
 And Elijah took the child, and brought the chamber into the house, and gave it to her mother; and Elijah said, See here, your son lives.
 And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth.
And it came to pass after many days, the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, show thyself unto Ahab; I will give rain upon the earth.
 And Elijah went to present himself to Ahab; and the famine was severe in Samaria.
 And Ahab called Obadiah, the steward; and Obadiah greatly feared the LORD,
 For it came to pass, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the Lord, Obadiah took a hundred prophets, and hid them fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.
 And Ahab said unto Obadiah, Go into the land, unto all fountains of water, and all the rivers; it may be that we find grass, so that we may preserve the horses and mules, and not lose all the animals.
 So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah was also alone on the other caminho. Being as Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met; and Obadiah recognized him, and fell on his face, and said: Art thou my lord Elias?
 And he answered him, I am: go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.
 And he said, What have I sinned, to deliver thy servant into the hand of Ahab, to slay me?
 Jehovah thy God liveth, there is no nation or kingdom, whither my lord hath not sent to seek thee; and when they said is not there; he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they found thee not.
 And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.
 And it could be that departing me I thee, the Spirit of the LORD took you, do not know where, and I come to give and tell Ahab, and did not find thee, he will kill me; but I thy servant fear the LORD from my youth.
Was I not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the Lord? How I hid a hundred men of the prophets of the Lord, to fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water?
 And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here; he would kill me.
 And Elijah said, By the living Lord of hosts, before whom I stand, I will surely shew myself to him.
 So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him; and Ahab went to meet Elijah.
 And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, he said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel 18 Then he said: I have not troubled Israel, but thou and thy father's house, because they have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, thou hast followed Baalim.
 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel at Mount Carmel; as well as four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel's table.
 So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel; and gathered the prophets together at Mount Carmel.
 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? If the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him.
Elijah and the prophets of Baal
 And Elijah said unto the people, I alone am left a prophet of the LORD, but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men.
 Give to us therefore, two calves, and let them choose for themselves one bullock, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, but put no fire, and I will dress the other bullock, and lay on the wood, and put no fire.
 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD; and it shall be the god who answers by fire let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
 And Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, Choose for yourselves one bull and prepare it first, for you are many, and call on the name of your god, but put no fire.
 And they took the bullock which was given them, and prepared; and called on the name of Baal from morning till noon, saying: Ah! Baal, answer us! But there was no voice, no one answered; And they leaped upon the altar which was feito. And it came to pass, when midday was past, they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice; however there were no voice, no answer, nor any that regarded.
 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near to me. And all the people came near to him; and restored the Lord's altar, which was broken.
 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom came the word of the LORD, saying, Israel shall be thy name.
 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD; he made a trench about the altar, according to the breadth of two measures of seed.
 And he put the wood, and cut the bullock in pieces, and put it on the wood.
 And I said: Fill four barrels of water, and pour it on the burnt offering and on the wood. And I said, Do it the second time; And they did it the second time. He said, Do it the third time; And they did it the third time;
 And the water ran around the altar; and the trench he filled with water.
 It happened at the time of being offered the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, O LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, be known this day that thou art God in Israel and that I am thy servant, and that according to thy word I have done all these things.
 Hear me, O LORD, answer me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast return your heart.
 Then fell fire from the LORD, and consumed the burnt offering, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.
 What all the people saw, they fell on their faces, and they said, The LORD is God! The Lord alone is God And Elijah said unto them, Take hold of the prophets of Baal, that none of them escape. And they laid hands on them; and Elijah made them go down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.
 And Elijah said to Ahab, Go up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.
 And Ahab went up to eat and drink; Elijah went up to the top of Carmel, and bowed to the ground and put his face between his knees.
 And said to his servant, Go up now, look to the side of the sea. And he went up and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times.
 And it came to pass at the seventh time, and said, Behold a little cloud like a man's hand, rising from the sea. And he said, Go up and say to Ahab, Prepare thy chariot and go down, that the rain stop thee not.
 And it came to pass, however, the sky was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain; and Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.
 And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah, and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
Jezebel threatened Elijah
And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how slain all the prophets with the sword.
 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah to tell you: the gods do so unto me, and more also, if a certain morrow about this time I make not thy life as the life of one of them.
 What seeing it, he got up and went for his life, was gone, and came to Beersheba, which is in Judah, and left his servant.
 But he went to the desert, a day's journey, and came and sat down under a juniper tree; and asked that he might die, and said: Enough, O LORD; Now take away my life, for I am no better than my Cambodia.5 And he lay down and slept under a juniper tree; and, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.
 And he looked, and behold, at his head was a cake baked on the coals, and a jar of water; and ate and drank, and made to lie down.
 And the angel of Jehovah came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat, because you will be very long the caminho.8 stood up then, and ate and drank; and the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb the mount of God.
 And there went into a cave and spent the night; and behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and said unto him, What doest thou here Elijah?
 And he said, I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts, because the sons of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword, and I am left alone, and they seek my life, to take.
 And God said to him: Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains and broke the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake;
 And after the earthquake a fire; but also the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
 And it came to pass, listening to Elijah wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood at the entrance of the cave; and behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts, because the sons of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword, and I alone am left; and they seek my life to take it away.
 And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus; and, arriving there, anoint Hazael king over Síria. Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint king over Israel; and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel-meholah shalt thou anoint prophet in your place.
 And it shall be that escape the sword of Hazael, shall Jehu slay; and he who escapes the sword of Jehu shall kill you Eliseu.18 also be left seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.
 So he went Elijah there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth; and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him.
 And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah; and said, Let me kiss my father and my mother, and then follow you. And he said unto him, Go back again; therefore I made thee?
 He came back because of the following, and took the yoke of oxen, and killed them, and with the instruments of the oxen baked meats, and gave unto the people, and they ate; then got up and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.  Então veio a palavra do SENHOR a Elias, o tisbita, dizendoArise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, who is in Samaria! behold, it is in the vineyard of Naboth, whither he is gone down to possess it.
 And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? Speak unto it more, saying, Thus saith the Lord: In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth lick too, your own blood.
 And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And I said, I have found thee; because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the LORD.
 Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and pluck up thy seed, and cut off from Ahab every male, both slave and free in Israel;
 And I will make thy house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah; for the provocation with which you have provoked me and made Israel to sin.
 And of Jezebel also spoke the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.
 He who dies of Ahab in the city the dogs shall eat; and who dies in the field the birds of the heavens eat.
 But there was none like Ahab, who did sell himself to do what was evil in the sight of the LORD; because Jezebel his wife incited him.
 And he did very abominably in following idols, according to all things as did the Amorites, whom the LORD cast out of their possession, before the children of Israel.
 it came to pass, when Ahab heard these words, he rent his clothes, and covered his bag of flesh, and fasted; and lay in sackcloth, and went softly.
 Then came the word of the Lord to Elijah the Tishbite,  Seest thou how Ahab has humbled himself before me? So, when they were humbled himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days, but in his son's days will bring about their casa.1 And after the death of Ahab, Moab rebelled against Israel.
 And Ahaziah fell down through a lattice in his upper chamber that was in Samaria, and was sick; and he sent messengers, and said unto them, Go, inquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron, to heal this disease.
 But the angel of Jehovah said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say to them: Is there no God in Israel, that ye go to inquire of Baal-zebub, god of Ekron?
 Now therefore thus saith the Lord: From the bed to which you have gone up, not come down, but surely die. So Elijah went.
 And the messengers returned to him; and he said unto them, Why are ye now turned back?
And they said to him, A man came out to meet us, and told us, Go, return to the king who sent you, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord: Is there no God in Israel, that thou sendest to inquire of Baal -Zebube the god of Ekron? So the bed to which you have gone up, not come down, but surely die.
 And he said unto them, What was the appearance of the man who came to meet you and told you these words?
 And they answered him, He was an hairy man, and girded with a leather belt. And I said, It is Elijah the Tishbite.
The fire from heaven consumes hundred men
 Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty; and he went up to him (for, behold, he sat on top of the mountain), he said to him: Man of God, the king said, Come down.
 And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I, therefore, a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. Then fire came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
 Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with their fifties; he answered him, saying, O man of God, thus saith the king: Come down depressa. And Elias said: If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
 And again he sent a third captain of fifty with their fifties; then climbed the captain of fifty, and came and stood on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, saying: Man of God, is, I pray thee, precious in your eyes my life and the life of these fifty thy servants.
 Behold, fire came down from heaven, and consumed the two former captains of fifty with their fifties; however, now be precious in your eyes my life.
 And the angel of Jehovah said to Elijah, Go down with him, fear not. And he arose, and went down with him to the king.
 And he said unto him, Thus saith the Lord: Because you have sent messengers to inquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? Is it because there is no God in Israel to inquire of his word? So that bed on which you have gone up, not come down, but shalt surely die.
 So he died according to the word of the LORD that Elijah had spoken; and Jehoram reigned in his stead in the second year of Joram the son of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah; because he had no son.
 The rest of the acts of Ahaziah which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
Elijah is taken up into heaven in a fiery chariot
 came to pass, when the LORD was about to take up Elijah by a whirlwind into heaven, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.
 And Elijah said to Elisha, Tarry, because the LORD hath sent me to Bethel. And Elisha said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave you. So it came to Bethel.
 The sons of the prophets that were at Bethel came forth to Elisha, and said, You know that the Lord will take away thy master from your head? And he said, I also know it; be still.
 And Elijah said unto him, Elisha, gets you here, for Yahweh has sent me to Jericho. But he said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave you. And so were the Jericó. The sons of the prophets that were at Jericho came to Elisha, and said to him, You know that the Lord will take away thy master from thy head? And he said, I also know it; be still.
 And Elijah said, Tarry, because the LORD hath sent me to Jordan. But he said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave you. And so both were together.
 And fifty men of the sons of the prophets, and stood by far: and they two stood by the Jordan.
 And Elijah took his mantle and folded it, and smote the waters, and they were divided on both sides; and they went over on dry. came to pass, when they were gone, Elijah said to Elisha, Ask me what you want me to do for you before I am taken from you. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.
 And he said, have asked a hard thing; If you see me when taken from you, it shall be done to you, but if not, do not do it.
 And it came to pass, as they went walking and talking, suddenly a fiery chariot with fiery horses parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind.
Elisha, Elijah's successor
 And Elisha saw it, cried: My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen! And I never saw him again; and, picking up his clothes, and rent them in two parts.
 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him; and, turning back, he stopped at the Jordan.
 And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the Lord God of Elijah? When he struck the waters, they parted from each other; and Elisha went over.
 Seeing him, then, the sons of the prophets who were to view at Jericho, they said, The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha.:

PSALM 1 The happiness of the righteous and the punishment of the wicked

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of mockers.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 Not so the wicked; but they are like chaff which the wind.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of justos.6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous; but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

1 Listen, children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
2 For I give you good doctrine; let not my law.
3 For I was tender child in my father's company, and unique sight of my mother.
4 And he taught me and said to me, Let thine heart retain my words; Keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom, get understanding, and do not forget you or heckling the words of my mouth.
6 Do not forsake her and she will keep you; He loves her, and she protegerá.7 you Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting in acquiring understanding.
8 Exalt her, and she will exalt you; and, holding her you, she will honor you.
9 will give to your head an ornament of grace and a crown of glory deliver thee.
10 Listen, my son, and receive my words, and multiply the years of your life.
11 In the way of wisdom taught you, and paths of righteousness did you walk.
12 For they walk, do not embarrass your steps; and if you run not stumble.
13 Take fast hold of instruction, do not let go; guard her, for she is thy life.
14 Enter not into the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil.
15 Avoid it; pass not by it; turn from it, and pass away.
16 For I sleep, if they do evil, and robbed of sleep if they do not tripping.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violência.18 The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
19 The way of the wicked is as darkness; they know not at what they stumble.
20 My son, attend to my words; to my incline thine ear.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their body.
23 Over all that, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
24 Turn away from you the falsity of the mouth and away from thee perverseness of lips.
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and all thy ways be established!
27 Turn not to the right or to the left; remove thy foot from evil.

NUMBERS 24 came upon him the Spirit of God.

1 SEEING balloon is right in the eyes of the Lord to bless Israel, was not this time as before to seek omens; but he set his face toward the wilderness.
2 And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel, which was camped by their tribes, came upon him the Spirit of God.
3 And he took up his parable, and said, Speak, Balaam the son of Beor, and the man speaks with his eyes open;
4 He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty; Falling down, and having his eyes open:
5 How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel!
6 As the valleys extend, as gardens by the riverside; as sandalwood trees of the LORD hath planted, and as cedar trees beside the waters;
7 water will flow from his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters; and their king will rise higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted.
8 God brought him out of Egypt; its forces are like the wild ox; eat up the nations his enemies, and break their bones, and with his arrows the atravessará.9 couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a lioness; who shall rouse him? blessed them that bless thee, and cursed those who curse you.
10 And Balak's anger was kindled against Balaam, and he smote his hands together; and Balak said unto Balaam, to curse my enemies I called thee but now three times blessed them entirely.
11 Now therefore, flee to your place; I thought to honor you greatly; but behold, the LORD has kept you back from honor.
12 Balaam said to Balak, Did I not say to thy messengers whom you sent to me, saying:
13 If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I can not go beyond the order of the Lord, doing good or evil of my own heart; what the LORD speaks, that will I speak?
14 Now, behold, I go unto my people; comes, tell thee what this people will do to your people in recent days.
15 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor, and the man speaks with his eyes open;
16 He hath said, which heard the words of God and knew the knowledge of the Most High; which saw the vision of the Almighty, Falling down, and having his eyes open.
17 See you I will, but not now, I will behold him, but not near; a star out of Jacob and a scepter shall rise out of Israel, which shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Seth.
18 And Edom shall be a possession, Seir, its enemies, also will be a possession; Israel does valiantly.
19 And one rule of Jacob, and shall slay them that remain of cidades.20 And seeing the Amalekites took up his parable, and said, Amalek is the first of the nations; but his end shall be destruction.
21 And seeing Kenites, took up his parable, and said, Strong is thy dwelling, and hast set thy nest in a rock.
22 Nevertheless the Kenite shall be wasted, until Asshur shall carry thee away captive.
23 And even uttering his parable, he said: Alas, who shall live when God does this?
24 And ships shall come from the coast of Chittim, and afflict Asshur also afflict Eber; which also shall perish for ever.
25 And Balaam rose, and went and returned to his place, and Balak also went his way.

DANIEL 12 recent times: the sealed words

And 1 At that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people, and there will be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time; but that time will get rid of your people, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2 And many of them that sleep in the dust shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and eternamente.4 And you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book until the end of time; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
5 Then I Daniel looked, and behold, there stood two others, one on this side, by the river, and the other on the other side, by the river.
6 And he said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river: When will be the end of these wonders?
7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, which raised to heaven his right hand and his left hand, and swore by him that liveth for ever that it would be for a time, times and half time, and when they have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
8 And I heard, but I understood not so I said, My lord, what will be the end of these things?
9 And he said, Go, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the end of time.
10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and put the abomination of desolation, there will be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
12 Blessed is he who waits and comes to the thousand three hundred thirty and five days.
13 And thou shalt go to the end; because you shall rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the day.
