1:And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.
 
2: And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy.

3:And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?
 
4: And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go;
 
5: And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day?
 
6: And they could not answer him again to these things.
 
7: And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,
 
8: When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
 
9: And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
 
10: But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
 
11: For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
 
12: Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
 
13: But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
 
14: And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
 
15: And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
 
16: Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
 
17: And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
 
18: And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
 
19: And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
 
20: And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
 
21: So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
 
22: And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
 
23: And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
 
24: For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
 
25: And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
 
26: If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
 
27: And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
 
28: For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
 
29: Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
 
30: Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
 
31: Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
 
32: Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
 
33: So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
 
34: Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?
 
35: It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

3:Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
 
4: He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
 
5: Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
 
6: And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.
 
7: Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
 
8: I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.
 
9: I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.
 
10: For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
 
11: I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
 
12: If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof.
 
13: Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
 
14: Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
 
15: And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
 
16: But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
 
17: Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
 
18: When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
 
19: Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
 
20: Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
 
21: These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
 
22: Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
 
23: Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

Leviticus Chapter Nine

1:And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;
 
2: And he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before the LORD.

3:And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak, saying, Take ye a kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both of the first year, without blemish, for a burnt offering;
 
4: Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the LORD; and a meat offering mingled with oil: for to day the LORD will appear unto you.
 
5: And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near and stood before the LORD.
 
6: And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commanded that ye should do: and the glory of the LORD shall appear unto you.
 
7: And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy sin offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for thyself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and make an atonement for them; as the LORD commanded.
 
8: Aaron therefore went unto the altar, and slew the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself.
 
9: And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar:
 
10: But the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of the sin offering, he burnt upon the altar; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
11: And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without the camp.
 
12: And he slew the burnt offering; and Aaron's sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled round about upon the altar.
 
13: And they presented the burnt offering unto him, with the pieces thereof, and the head: and he burnt them upon the altar.
 
14: And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt them upon the burnt offering on the altar.
 
15: And he brought the people's offering, and took the goat, which was the sin offering for the people, and slew it, and offered it for sin, as the first.
 
16: And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it according to the manner.
 
17: And he brought the meat offering, and took an handful thereof, and burnt it upon the altar, beside the burnt sacrifice of the morning.
 
18: He slew also the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings, which was for the people: and Aaron's sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled upon the altar round about,
 
19: And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump, and that which covereth the inwards, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver:
 
20: And they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fat upon the altar:
 
21: And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave offering before the LORD; as Moses commanded.
 
22: And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed them, and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and peace offerings.
 
23: And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people.
 
24: And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.

1:And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.
 
2: And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.

3:Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.
 
4: And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.
 
5: So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said.
 
6: And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath kindled.
 
7: And ye shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: for the anointing oil of the LORD is upon you. And they did according to the word of Moses.
 
8: And the LORD spake unto Aaron, saying,
 
9: Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:
 
10: And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;
 
11: And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.
 
12: And Moses spake unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meat offering that remaineth of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar: for it is most holy:
 
13: And ye shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due, and thy sons' due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire: for so I am commanded.
 
14: And the wave breast and heave shoulder shall ye eat in a clean place; thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee: for they be thy due, and thy sons' due, which are given out of the sacrifices of peace offerings of the children of Israel.
 
15: The heave shoulder and the wave breast shall they bring with the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering before the LORD; and it shall be thine, and thy sons' with thee, by a statute for ever; as the LORD hath commanded.
 
16: And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,
 
17: Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the LORD?
 
18: Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.
 
19: And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the LORD; and such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of the LORD?
 
20: And when Moses heard that, he was content.
