22 Seeing that both, Jews for signs, do ask, and, Greeks for wisdom, do seek,
23 Whereas, we, proclaim a Christ who hath been crucified,unto Jews, indeed, an occasion of stumbling, and, unto Gentiles, foolishness;
24 But, unto the called themselvesboth Jews and Greeks, Christ, Gods power, and, Gods wisdom.
Proclaim the word, take thy positionin season, out of season,convince, rebuke, encourage,with all long-suffering and teaching.
30 And, running near, Philip heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and saidDost thou, then, understand what thou art reading?
31 And, he, saidHow indeed should be ableunless someone shall guide me? And he called upon Philip, to come up and sit with him.
32 Now, the passage of Scripture which he was reading, was, this:As a sheep, unto slaughter, was he led, and, as a lamb, before him that sheareth it, is dumb, so, he openeth not his mouth.
14 How, then, shall men call upon one in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in one of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear, without one to proclaim?
15 And how shall they proclaim, except they be sent? Even as it is writtenHow beautiful the feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things!
16 But, not all, have become obedient unto the glad tidings;for, Isaiah, saithLord! who believed what we have heard?
17 Hence, our faith, cometh by something heard, and, that which is heard, through a declaration of Christ.
For I am not ashamed of the joyful message; for it is Gods power unto salvation, to every one that believeth, both to Jew first and to Greek;
For, a righteousness of God, is therein revealed,by faith unto faith: even as it is writtenBut, he that is righteous, by faith, shall live.
But, he, answering, said, It is written,Not on bread alone, shall man live, but on every declaration coming forth through the mouth of God.
and, these, were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they welcomed the word with all readiness of mind, daily, searching the Scriptures,whether these things could be so.
For, seeing that, in the wisdom of God, the world, through its wisdom, did not get to knew God, God was well-pleasedthrough the foolishness of the thing proclaimed, to save them that believe.
And Philip, opening his mouth, and beginning from this scripture, told him the glad tidings of Jesus.
For, Ezra, had settled his heart, to study the law of Yahweh, and to do
For, living, is the word of God, and, energetic, and more cutting than any knife with two edges, and penetrating as far as a dividing asunder of soul and spirit, of joints also, and marrow, and able to judge the impulses and designs of the heart;
And, as ye go, proclaim, saying, The kingdom of the heavens hath drawn near!
6 I marvel that, thus quickly, ye are moving away from him that called you in the favour of Christ, unto a different glad-message,
7 Which is not, another, only there are, some, that are troubling you, and wishing to change the glad-message of the Christ.
8 But, even if, we, or, a messenger out of heaven, announce a glad-message unto you aside from that which we announced unto you, accursed, let him be!
9 As we have said before, even now, again, I say: If anyone is announcing unto you a glad-message aside from that which ye accepted, accursed, let him be!
Whatsoever things, in fact, were written aforetime, all for our own instruction were written,in order that, through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures, we might have their hope.
And the word of Yahweh came unto Zechariah, saying:
Hallow them in the truth: Thine own word, is, truth:
For, as the rain and the snow descend from the heavens. And thither, do not return, Except they have watered the earth. And caused it to bring forth and bud,And given seed to the sower, and bread to the eater,
So, shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth, It shall not return unto me void,But shall accomplish that which I please, And shall prosper in that whereunto I have sent it.
I, bear witness, unto every one that heareth the words of the prophecy of this scroll:If anyone shall lay aught upon them, God, will lay upon him, the plagues which are written in this scroll;
And, if anyone shall take away from the words of this prophetic scroll, God, will take away his part,from the tree of life, and out of the holy city,
BETH. Wherewithal can a young man keep pure his way? By taking heed, according to thy word.
The sum of thy word, is truth, and, age-abiding, is every one of thy righteous regulations.
Then came the word of Yahweh unto him, saying
Ye search the Scriptures, because, ye, think, by them, to have, life age-abiding; and, those , are they which bear witness concerning me:
And the word of Yahweh came unto Jeremiah saying:
Every scripture, God-breathed, and profitableunto teaching, unto conviction, unto correction, unto the discipline that is in righteousness,
In order that, ready, may be the man, of God, unto every good work, being well-prepared.
12 But, as for us,not the spirit of the world, have we received, but the Spirit which is of God,that we might know the things which, by God, have been given in favour unto us:
13 Which we also speaknot in words taught of human wisdom, but in such as are taught of Spirit, by spiritual words, spiritual things, explaining.
14 But, a man of the soul, doth not welcome the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness unto him, and he cannot get to know them, because, spiritually, are they examined;
For Christ sent me not, to be immersing, but to be telling the good news,not with wisdom of discourse, lest, void should be made, the cross of the Christ.
Of this, first, taking notethat, no prophecy of scripture, becometh, self-solving;
For not, by will of man, was prophecy brought in, at any time, but, as, by Holy Spirit, they were borne along, spake, men, from God.
1 The spirit of My Lord Yahweh, is upon me,Because Yahweh Hath anointed me to tell good tidings to the oppressed, lath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, To proclaim To captives, liberty, To them who are bound, the opening of the prison;
2 To proclaimThe year of acceptance of Yahweh, and The day of avenging of our God: To comfort all who are mourning;
3 To appoint unto the mourners of ZionTo give unto them A chaplet instead of ashes, The oil of joy instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of the spirit of dejection,So shall they be called The oaks of righteousness, The plantation of Yahweh: That he may get himself glory
The heaven and the earth, shall pass away, but, my words, shall, in nowise, pass away.
But the declaration of the Lord age-abidingly remaineth; And, this, is a declaration which in the joyful message hath been announced unto you.
15 And that, from a babe, those sacred letters, thou hast known which are able to make thee wise unto salvation, through the faith which is in Christ Jesus:
16 Every scripture, God-breathed, and profitableunto teaching, unto conviction, unto correction, unto the discipline that is in righteousness,
17 In order that, ready, may be the man, of God, unto every good work, being well-prepared.
The word of Yahweh, which came unto Joel, son of Pethuel.
Give diligence, thyself, approved, to present unto God,a workman not to be put to shame, skillfully handling the word of truth.
18 And Jesus, coming near, spake unto them, sayingAll authority, in heaven and on earth, hath been given unto me;
19 Go ye, therefore, and disciple all the nations, Immersing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I myself have commanded you, And lo! I, am, with you, all the days, until the conclusion of the age.
While I am coming, be giving heedto the reading, to the exhorting, to the teaching:
and, according to Pauls custom, he went in unto them, and, for three sabbaths, reasoned with them from the Scriptures,
opening up, and setting forth, that it was needful for, the Christ, to suffer, and to arise from among the dead; and , This, is the Christ,Jesus, whom, I, am declaring unto you.
25 And, he, said unto themO thoughtless ones! and slow in heart to rest your faith upon all things which the prophets have spoken:
26 Was it not needful for the Christ, these very things, to suffer, and to enter into his glory?
27 And, beginning from Moses, and from all the prophets, he thoroughly explained to them, in all the Scriptures, the things concerning himself.
Every saying of God is refined, A shield, is, he, to them who seek refuge in him.
Do not add unto his words, lest he convict thee, and thou be found false.
Then came the word of Yahweh unto, Isaiah, saying:
And account, our Lords long suffering, salvation:even as, our beloved brother Paul also, according to the wisdom given unto him, hath written unto you;
As also, in all letters, speaking in them concerning these things,in which are some things, hard to be understood, which, the uninstructed and unstable, wrest,as also the other scriptures,unto their own destruction.
But, ye, are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for a peculiar treasure, that, the excellences, ye may tell forth, of him who, out of darkness, hath called you into his marvellous light:
The oracle of the word of Yahweh, unto Israel,by the hand of Malachi.
