Top Ezekiel 7:1-9:11, BBE.

“1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 And you, son of man, say, This is what the Lord has said to the land of Israel: An end has come, the end has come on the four quarters of the land. 3 Now the end has come on you, and I will send my wrath on you, judging you for your ways, I will send punishment on you for all your disgusting acts. 4 My eye will not have mercy on you, and I will have no pity: but I will send the punishment of your ways on you, and your disgusting works will be among you: and you will be certain that I am the Lord. 5 This is what the Lord has said: An evil, even one evil; see, it is coming. 6 An end has come, the end has come; see, it is coming on you. 7 The crowning time has come on you, O people of the land: the time has come, the day is near; the day will not be slow in coming, it will not keep back. 8 Now, in a little time, I will let loose my passion on you, and give full effect to my wrath against you, judging you for your ways, and sending punishment on you for all your disgusting works. 9 My eye will not have mercy, and I will have no pity: I will send on you the punishment of your ways, and your disgusting works will be among you; and you will see that I am the Lord who gives punishment. 10 See, the day; see, it is coming: the crowning time has gone out; the twisted way is flowering, pride has put out buds. 11 Violent behaviour has been lifted up into a rod of evil; it will not be slow in coming, it will not keep back. 12 The time has come, the day is near: let not him who gives a price for goods be glad, or him who gets the price have sorrow: 13 For the trader will not go back to the things for which he had his price, even while he is still living: 14 And he who has given a price for goods will not get them, for my wrath is on all of them. 15 Outside is the sword, and inside disease and need of food: he who is in the open country will be put to the sword; he who is in the town will come to his end through need of food and disease. 16 And those of them who get away safely will go and be in the secret places like the doves of the valleys, all of them will come to death, every one in his sin. 17 All hands will be feeble and all knees without strength, like water. 18 And they will put haircloth round them, and deep fear will be covering them; and shame will be on all faces, and the hair gone from all their heads. 19 They will put out their silver into the streets, and their gold will be as an unclean thing; their silver and their gold will not be able to keep them safe in the day of the wrath of the Lord; they will not get their desire or have food for their need: because it has been the cause of their falling into sin. 20 As for their beautiful ornament, they had put it on high, and had made the images of their disgusting and hated things in it: for this cause I have made it an unclean thing to them. 21 And I will give it into the hands of men from strange lands who will take it by force, and to the evil-doers of the earth to have for themselves; and they will make it unholy. 22 And my face will be turned away from them, and they will make my secret place unholy: violent men will go into it and make it unholy. 23 Make the chain: for the land is full of crimes of blood, and the town is full of violent acts. 24 For this reason I will send the worst of the nations and they will take their houses for themselves: I will make the pride of their strength come to an end; and their holy places will be made unclean. 25 Shaking fear is coming; and they will be looking for peace, and there will be no peace. 26 Destruction will come on destruction, and one story after another; and the vision of the prophet will be shamed, and knowledge of the law will come to an end among the priests, and wisdom among the old. 27 The king will give himself up to sorrow, and the ruler will be clothed with wonder, and the hands of the people of the land will be troubled: I will give them punishment for their ways, judging them as it is right for them to be judged; and they will be certain that I am the Lord. 1 Now in the sixth year, in the sixth month, on the fifth day of the month, when I was in my house and the responsible men of Judah were seated before me, the hand of the Lord came on me there. 2 And looking, I saw a form like fire; from the middle of his body and down there was fire: and up from the middle of his body a sort of shining, like electrum. 3 And he put out the form of a hand and took me by the hair of my head; and the wind, lifting me up between the earth and the heaven, took me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the way into the inner door facing to the north; where was the seat of the image of envy. 4 And I saw the glory of the Lord there, as in the vision which I saw in the valley. 5 Then he said to me, Son of man, now let your eyes be lifted up in the direction of the north; and on looking in the direction of the north, to the north of the doorway of the altar, I saw this image of envy by the way in. 6 And he said to me, Son of man, do you see what they are doing? even the very disgusting things which the children of Israel are doing here, causing me to go far away from my holy place? but you will see other most disgusting things. 7 And he took me to the door of the open place; and looking, I saw a hole in the wall. 8 And he said to me, Son of man, make a hole in the wall: and after making a hole in the wall I saw a door. 9 And he said to me, Go in and see the evil and disgusting things which they are doing here. 10 So I went in and saw; and there every sort of living thing which goes flat on the earth, and unclean beasts, and all the images of the children of Israel, were pictured round about on the wall. 11 And before them seventy of the responsible men of the children of Israel had taken their places, every man with a vessel for burning perfumes in his hand, and in the middle of them was Jaazaniah, the son of Shaphan; and a cloud of smoke went up from the burning perfume. 12 And he said to me, Son of man, have you seen what the responsible men of the children of Israel do in the dark, every man in his room of pictured images? for they say, The Lord does not see us; the Lord has gone away from the land. 13 Then he said to me, You will see even more disgusting things which they do. 14 Then he took me to the door of the way into the Lord’s house looking to the north; and there women were seated weeping for Tammuz. 15 Then he said to me, Have you seen this, O son of man? you will see even more disgusting things than these. 16 And he took me into the inner square of the Lord’s house, and at the door of the Temple of the Lord, between the covered way and the altar, there were about twenty-five men with their backs turned to the Temple of the Lord and their faces turned to the east; and they were worshipping the sun, turning to the east. 17 Then he said to me, Have you seen this, O son of man? is it a small thing to the children of Judah that they do the disgusting things which they are doing here? for they have made the land full of violent behaviour, making me angry again and again: and see, they put the branch to my nose. 18 For this reason I will let loose my wrath: my eye will not have mercy, and I will have no pity. 1 Then crying out in my hearing in a loud voice, he said, Let the overseers of the town come near, every man armed. 2 And six men came from the way of the higher doorway looking to the north, every man with his axe in his hand: and one man among them was clothed in linen, with a writer’s inkpot at his side. And they went in and took their places by the brass altar. 3 And the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the winged ones on which it was resting, to the doorstep of the house. And crying out to the man clothed in linen who had the writer’s inkpot at his side, 4 The Lord said to him, Go through the town, through the middle of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the brows of the men who are sorrowing and crying for all the disgusting things which are done in it. 5 And to these he said in my hearing, Go through the town after him using your axes: do not let your eyes have mercy, and have no pity: 6 Give up to destruction old men and young men and virgins, little children and women: but do not come near any man who has the mark on him: and make a start at my holy place. So they made a start with the old men who were before the house. 7 And he said to them, Make the house unclean, make the open places full of dead: go forward and send destruction on the town. 8 Now while they were doing so, and I was untouched, I went down on my face, and crying out, I said, Ah, Lord! will you give all the rest of Israel to destruction in letting loose your wrath on Jerusalem? 9 Then he said to me, The sin of the children of Israel and Judah is very, very great, and the land is full of blood and the town full of evil ways: for they say, The Lord has gone away from the land, and the Lord does not see. 10 And as for me, my eye will not have mercy, and I will have no pity, but I will send the punishment of their ways on their heads. 11 Then the man clothed in linen, who had the inkpot at his side, came back and said, I have done what you gave me orders to do.”

Top Hebrews 5:1-14, BBE.

“1 Every high priest who is taken from among men is given his position to take care of the interests of men in those things which have to do with God, so that he may make offerings for sins. 2 He is able to have feeling for those who have no knowledge and for those who are wandering from the true way, because he himself is feeble; 3 And being feeble, he has to make sin-offerings for himself as well as for the people. 4 And no man who is not given authority by God, as Aaron was, takes this honour for himself. 5 In the same way Christ did not take for himself the glory of being made a high priest, but was given it by him who said, You are my Son, this day I have given you being: 6 As he says in another place, You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. 7 Who in the days of his flesh, having sent up prayers and requests with strong crying and weeping to him who was able to give him salvation from death, had his prayer answered because of his fear of God. 8 And though he was a Son, through the pain which he underwent, the knowledge came to him of what it was to be under God’s orders; 9 And when he had been made complete, he became the giver of eternal salvation to all those who are under his orders; 10 Being named by God a high priest of the order of Melchizedek. 11 Of whom we have much to say which it is hard to make clear, because you are slow of hearing. 12 And though by this time it would be right for you to be teachers, you still have need of someone to give you teaching about the first simple rules of God’s revelation; you have become like babies who have need of milk, and not of solid food. 13 For everyone who takes milk is without experience of the word of righteousness: he is a child. 14 But solid food is for men of full growth, even for those whose senses are trained by use to see what is good and what is evil.”

Top Psalms 105:1-15, BBE.

“1 O give praise to the Lord; give honour to his name, talking of his doings among the peoples. 2 Let your voice be sounding in songs and melody; let all your thoughts be of the wonder of his works. 3 Have glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who are searching after the Lord be glad. 4 Let your search be for the Lord and for his strength; let your hearts ever be turned to him. 5 Keep in mind the great works which he has done; his wonders, and the decisions of his mouth; 6 O you seed of Abraham, his servant, you children of Jacob, his loved ones. 7 He is the Lord our God: he is judge of all the earth. 8 He has kept his agreement in mind for ever, the word which he gave for a thousand generations; 9 The agreement which he made with Abraham, and his oath to Isaac; 10 And he gave it to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an eternal agreement; 11 Saying, To you will I give the land of Canaan, the measured line of your heritage: 12 When they were still small in number, and strange in the land; 13 When they went about from one nation to another, and from one kingdom to another people. 14 He would not let anyone do them wrong; he even kept back kings because of them, 15 Saying, Put not your hand on those who have been marked with my holy oil, and do my prophets no wrong.”
