Reading for Apr 9 (WEB)
DEU 14:21 You shall not eat of anything that dies of itself. You may give it to the foreigner living among you who is within your gates, that he may eat it; or you may sell it to a foreigner; for you are a holy people to Yahweh your God. You shall not boil a young goat in its mother’s milk.
DEU 14:22 You shall surely tithe all the increase of your seed, that which comes out of the field year by year.
DEU 14:23 You shall eat before Yahweh your God, in the place which he chooses to cause his name to dwell, the tithe of your grain, of your new wine, and of your oil, and the firstborn of your herd and of your flock; that you may learn to fear Yahweh your God always.
DEU 14:24 If the way is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry it because the place which Yahweh your God shall choose to set his name there is too far from you, when Yahweh your God blesses you,
DEU 14:25 then you shall turn it into money, bind up the money in your hand, and shall go to the place which Yahweh your God shall choose.
DEU 14:26 You shall trade the money for whatever your soul desires: for cattle, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatever your soul asks of you. You shall eat there before Yahweh your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household.
DEU 14:27 You shall not forsake the Levite who is within your gates, for he has no portion nor inheritance with you.
DEU 14:28 At the end of every three years you shall bring all the tithe of your increase in the same year, and shall store it within your gates.
DEU 14:29 The Levite, because he has no portion nor inheritance with you, as well as the foreigner living among you, the fatherless, and the widow who are within your gates shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that Yahweh your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.
DEU 15:1 At the end of every seven years, you shall cancel debts.
DEU 15:2 This is the way it shall be done: every creditor shall release that which he has lent to his neighbor. He shall not require payment from his neighbor and his brother, because Yahweh’s release has been proclaimed.
DEU 15:3 Of a foreigner you may require it; but whatever of yours is with your brother, your hand shall release.
DEU 15:4 However there will be no poor with you (for Yahweh will surely bless you in the land which Yahweh your God gives you for an inheritance to possess)
DEU 15:5 if only you diligently listen to Yahweh your God’s voice, to observe to do all this commandment which I command you today.
DEU 15:6 For Yahweh your God will bless you, as he promised you. You will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow. You will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you.
DEU 15:7 If a poor man, one of your brothers, is with you within any of your gates in your land which Yahweh your God gives you, you shall not harden your heart, nor shut your hand from your poor brother;
DEU 15:8 but you shall surely open your hand to him, and shall surely lend him sufficient for his need, which he lacks.
DEU 15:9 Beware that there not be a wicked thought in your 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 nothing; and he cry to Yahweh against you, and it be sin to you.
DEU 15:10 You shall surely give, and your heart shall not be grieved when you give to him, because it is for this thing Yahweh your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you put your hand to.
DEU 15:11 For the poor will never cease out of the land. Therefore I command you to surely open your hand to your brother, to your needy, and to your poor, in your land.
DEU 15:12 If your brother, a Hebrew man, or a Hebrew woman, is sold to you and serves you six years, then in the seventh year you shall let him go free from you.
DEU 15:13 When you let him go free from you, you shall not let him go empty.
DEU 15:14 You shall furnish him liberally out of your flock, out of your threshing floor, and out of your wine press. As Yahweh your God has blessed you, you shall give to him.
DEU 15:15 You shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and Yahweh your God redeemed you. Therefore I command you this thing today.
DEU 15:16 It shall be, if he tells you, “I will not go out from you,” because he loves you and your house, because he is well with you,
DEU 15:17 then you shall take an awl, and thrust it through his ear to the door, and he shall be your servant forever. Also to your female servant you shall do likewise.
DEU 15:18 It shall not seem hard to you when you let him go free from you; for he has been double the value of a hired hand as he served you six years. Yahweh your God will bless you in all that you do.
DEU 15:19 You shall dedicate all the firstborn males that are born of your herd and of your flock to Yahweh your God. You shall do no work with the firstborn of your herd, nor shear the firstborn of your flock.
DEU 15:20 You shall eat it before Yahweh your God year by year in the place which Yahweh shall choose, you and your household.
DEU 15:21 If it has any defect—is lame or blind, or has any defect whatever, you shall not sacrifice it to Yahweh your God.
DEU 15:22 You shall eat it within your gates. The unclean and the clean shall eat it alike, as the gazelle and as the deer.
DEU 15:23 Only you shall not eat its blood. You shall pour it out on the ground like water.
DEU 16:1 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover to Yahweh your God; for in the month of Abib Yahweh your God brought you out of Egypt by night.
DEU 16:2 You shall sacrifice the Passover to Yahweh your God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which Yahweh shall choose to cause his name to dwell there.
DEU 16:3 You shall eat no leavened bread with it. You shall eat unleavened bread with it seven days, even the bread of affliction (for you came out of the land of Egypt in haste) that you may remember the day when you came out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life.
DEU 16:4 No yeast shall be seen with you in all your borders seven days; neither shall any of the meat, which you sacrifice the first day at evening, remain all night until the morning.
DEU 16:5 You may not sacrifice the Passover within any of your gates which Yahweh your God gives you;
DEU 16:6 but at the place which Yahweh your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell in, there you shall sacrifice the Passover at evening, at the going down of the sun, at the season that you came out of Egypt.
DEU 16:7 You shall roast and eat it in the place which Yahweh your God chooses. In the morning you shall return to your tents.
DEU 16:8 Six days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yahweh your God. You shall do no work.
DEU 16:9 You shall count for yourselves seven weeks. From the time you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain you shall begin to count seven weeks.
DEU 16:10 You shall keep the feast of weeks to Yahweh your God with a tribute of a free will offering of your hand, which you shall give according to how Yahweh your God blesses you.
DEU 16:11 You shall rejoice before Yahweh your God: you, your son, your daughter, your male servant, your female servant, the Levite who is within your gates, the foreigner, the fatherless, and the widow who are among you, in the place which Yahweh your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there.
DEU 16:12 You shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt. You shall observe and do these statutes.
DEU 16:13 You shall keep the feast of booths seven days, after you have gathered in from your threshing floor and from your wine press.
DEU 16:14 You shall rejoice in your feast, you, your son, your daughter, your male servant, your female servant, the Levite, the foreigner, the fatherless, and the widow who are within your gates.
DEU 16:15 You shall keep a feast to Yahweh your God seven days in the place which Yahweh chooses, because Yahweh your God will bless you in all your increase and in all the work of your hands, and you shall be altogether joyful.
DEU 16:16 Three times in a year all of your males shall appear before Yahweh your God in the place which he chooses: in the feast of unleavened bread, in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of booths. They shall not appear before Yahweh empty.
DEU 16:17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to Yahweh your God’s blessing which he has given you.
DEU 16:18 You shall make judges and officers in all your gates, which Yahweh your God gives you, according to your tribes; and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.
DEU 16:19 You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality. You shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous.
DEU 16:20 You shall follow that which is altogether just, that you may live and inherit the land which Yahweh your God gives you.
DEU 16:21 You shall not plant for yourselves an Asherah of any kind of tree beside Yahweh your God’s altar, which you shall make for yourselves.
DEU 16:22 Neither shall you set yourself up a sacred stone which Yahweh your God hates.
PSA 63:2 So I have seen you in the sanctuary, watching your power and your glory.
PSA 63:3 Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you.
PSA 63:4 So I will bless you while I live. I will lift up my hands in your name.
PSA 63:5 My soul shall be satisfied as with the richest food. My mouth shall praise you with joyful lips,
PSA 63:6 when I remember you on my bed, and think about you in the night watches.
PSA 63:7 For you have been my help. I will rejoice in the shadow of your wings.
PSA 63:8 My soul stays close to you. Your right hand holds me up.
PSA 63:9 But those who seek my soul to destroy it shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
PSA 63:10 They shall be given over to the power of the sword. They shall be jackal food.
LUK 8:37 All the people of the surrounding country of the Gadarenes asked him to depart from them, for they were very much afraid. Then he entered into the boat and returned.
LUK 8:38 But the man from whom the demons had gone out begged him that he might go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying,
LUK 8:39 “Return to your house, and declare what great things God has done for you.” He went his way, proclaiming throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him.
LUK 8:40 When Jesus returned, the multitude welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.
LUK 8:41 Behold, a man named Jairus came. He was a ruler of the synagogue. He fell down at Jesus’ feet, and begged him to come into his house,
LUK 8:42 for he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as he went, the multitudes pressed against him.
LUK 8:43 A woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her living on physicians and could not be healed by any
LUK 8:44 came behind him, and touched the fringe of his cloak. Immediately the flow of her blood stopped.
LUK 8:45 Jesus said, “Who touched me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes press and jostle you, and you say, ‘Who touched me?’”
LUK 8:46 But Jesus said, “Someone did touch me, for I perceived that power has gone out of me.”
LUK 8:47 When the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling, and falling down before him declared to him in the presence of all the people the reason why she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
LUK 8:48 He said to her, “Daughter, cheer up. Your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
LUK 8:49 While he still spoke, one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house came, saying to him, “Your daughter is dead. Don’t trouble the Teacher.”
LUK 8:50 But Jesus hearing it, answered him, “Don’t be afraid. Only believe, and she will be healed.”
LUK 8:51 When he came to the house, he didn’t allow anyone to enter in, except Peter, John, James, the father of the child, and her mother.
LUK 8:52 All were weeping and mourning her, but he said, “Don’t weep. She isn’t dead, but sleeping.”
LUK 8:53 They were ridiculing him, knowing that she was dead.
LUK 8:54 But he put them all outside, and taking her by the hand, he called, saying, “Child, arise!”
LUK 8:55 Her spirit returned, and she rose up immediately. He commanded that something be given to her to eat.
LUK 8:56 Her parents were amazed, but he commanded them to tell no one what had been done.
LUK 9:1 He called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases.
LUK 9:2 He sent them out to preach God’s Kingdom and to heal the sick.
