“1 Now in the eleventh year, in the third month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Son of man, say to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and to his people; Whom are you like in your great power? 3 See, a pine-tree with beautiful branches and thick growth, giving shade and very tall; and its top was among the clouds. 4 It got strength from the waters and the deep made it tall: its streams went round about its planted land and it sent out its waterways to all the trees of the field. 5 In this way it became taller than all the trees of the field; and its branches were increased and its arms became long because of the great waters. 6 In its branches all the birds of heaven came to rest, and under its arms all the beasts of the field gave birth to their young, and great nations were living in its shade. 7 So it was beautiful, being so tall and its branches so long, for its root was by great waters. 8 No cedars were equal to it in the garden of God; the fir-trees were not like its branches, and plane-trees were as nothing in comparison with its arms; no tree in the garden of God was so beautiful. 9 I made it beautiful with its mass of branches: so that all the trees in the garden of God were full of envy of it. 10 For this cause the Lord has said: Because he is tall, and has put his top among the clouds, and his heart is full of pride because he is so high, 11 I have given him up into the hands of a strong one of the nations; he will certainly give him the reward of his sin, driving him out. 12 And men from strange lands, who are to be feared among the nations, after cutting him off, have let him be: on the mountains and in all the valleys his branches have come down; his arms are broken by all the waterways of the land; all the peoples of the earth have gone from his shade, and have let him be. 13 All the birds of heaven have come to rest on his broken stem where it is stretched on the earth, and all the beasts of the field will be on his branches: 14 In order that no trees by the waters may be lifted up in their growth, putting their tops among the clouds; and that no trees which are watered may take their place on high: for they are all given up to death, to the lowest parts of the earth among the children of men, with those who go down to the underworld. 15 This is what the Lord has said: The day when he goes down to the underworld, I will make the deep full of grief for him; I will keep back her streams and the great waters will be stopped: I will make Lebanon dark for him, and all the trees of the field will be feeble because of him. 16 I will send shaking on the nations at the sound of his fall, when I send him down to the underworld with those who go down into the deep: and on earth they will be comforting themselves, all the trees of Eden, the best of Lebanon, even all the watered ones. 17 And they will go down with him to the underworld, to those who have been put to the sword; even those who were his helpers, living under his shade among the nations 18 Whom then are you like? for you will be sent down with the trees of Eden into the lowest parts of the earth: there you will be stretched out among those without circumcision, with those who were put to the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his people, says the Lord. 1 And it came about in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, on the first day of the month, that the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Son of man, make a song of grief for Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and say to him, Young lion of the nations, destruction has come on you; and you were like a sea-beast in the seas, sending out bursts of water, troubling the waters with your feet, making their streams dirty. 3 This is what the Lord has said: My net will be stretched out over you, and I will take you up in my fishing-net. 4 And I will let you be stretched on the land; I will send you out violently into the open field; I will let all the birds of heaven come to rest on you and will make the beasts of all the earth full of you. 5 And I will put your flesh on the mountains, and make the valleys full of your blood. 6 And the land will be watered with your blood, and the waterways will be full of you. 7 And when I put out your life, the heaven will be covered and its stars made dark; I will let the sun be covered with a cloud and the moon will not give her light. 8 All the bright lights of heaven I will make dark over you, and put dark night on your land, says the Lord. 9 And the hearts of numbers of peoples will be troubled, when I send your prisoners among the nations, into a country which is strange to you. 10 And I will make a number of peoples overcome with wonder at you, and their kings will be full of fear because of you, when my sword is waved before them: they will be shaking every minute, every man fearing for his life, in the day of your fall. 11 For this is what the Lord has said: The sword of the king of Babylon will come on you. 12 I will let the swords of the strong be the cause of the fall of your people; all of them men to be feared among the nations: and they will make waste the pride of Egypt, and all its people will come to destruction. 13 And I will put an end to all her beasts which are by the great waters, and they will never again be troubled by the foot of man or by the feet of beasts. 14 Then I will make their waters clear and their rivers will be flowing like oil, says the Lord. 15 When I make Egypt an unpeopled waste, cutting off from the land all the things in it; when I send punishment on all those living in it, then it will be clear to them that I am the Lord. 16 It is a song of grief, and people will give voice to it, the daughters of the nations will give voice to it, even for Egypt and all her people, says the Lord. 17 And in the twelfth year, on the fifteenth day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 18 Son of man, let your voice be loud in sorrow for the people of Egypt and send them down, even you and the daughters of the nations; I will send them down into the lowest parts of the earth, with those who go down into the underworld. 19 Are you more beautiful than any? go down, and take your rest among those without circumcision, 20 Among those who have been put to the sword: they will give a resting-place with them to all their people. 21 The strong among the great ones will say to him from the underworld, Are you more beautiful than any? go down, you and your helpers, and take your rest among those without circumcision, and those who have been put to the sword. 22 There is Asshur and all her army, round about her last resting-place: all of them put to death by the sword: 23 Whose resting-places are in the inmost parts of the underworld, who were a cause of fear in the land of the living. 24 There is Elam and all her people, round about her last resting-place: all of them put to death by the sword, who have gone down without circumcision into the lowest parts of the earth, who were a cause of fear in the land of the living, and are put to shame with those who go down to the underworld: 25 They have made a bed for her among the dead, and all her people are round about her resting-place: all of them without circumcision, put to death with the sword; for they were a cause of fear in the land of the living, and are put to shame with those who go down to the underworld: they have been given a place among those who have been put to the sword. 26 There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her people, round about her last resting-place: all of them without circumcision, put to death by the sword; for they were a cause of fear in the land of the living. 27 And they have been put to rest with the fighting men who came to their end in days long past, who went down to the underworld with their instruments of war, placing their swords under their heads, and their body-covers are over their bones; for their strength was a cause of fear in the land of the living. 28 But you will have your bed among those without circumcision, and will be put to rest with those who have been put to death with the sword. 29 There is Edom, her kings and all her princes, who have been given a resting-place with those who were put to the sword: they will be resting among those without circumcision, even with those who go down to the underworld. 30 There are the chiefs of the north, all of them, and all the Zidonians, who have gone down with those who have been put to the sword: they are shamed on account of all the fear caused by their strength; they are resting there without circumcision, among those who have been put to the sword, and are put to shame with those who go down to the underworld. 31 Pharaoh will see them and be comforted on account of all his people: even Pharaoh and all his army, put to death by the sword, says the Lord. 32 For he put his fear in the land of the living: and he will be put to rest among those without circumcision, with those who have been put to death with the sword, even Pharaoh and all his people, says the Lord.”

Top Hebrews 12:14-29, BBE.

“14 Let your desire be for peace with all men, and to be made holy, without which no man may see the Lord; 15 Looking with care to see that no man among you in his behaviour comes short of the grace of God; for fear that some bitter root may come up to be a trouble to you, and that some of you may be made unclean by it; 16 And that there may not be any evil liver, or any man without respect for God, like Esau, who let his birthright go for a plate of food. 17 For you have knowledge that even long after, when he was desiring the blessing for his heritage, he was turned away, though he made his request frequently and with weeping; because the past might not be changed. 18 You have not come to a mountain which may be touched, and is burning with fire, and to a black cloud, and a dark smoke, and a violent wind, 19 And to the sound of a horn, and the voice of words, the hearers of which made request that not a word more might be said to them: 20 For the order which said, If the mountain is touched even by a beast, the beast is to be stoned, seemed hard to them; 21 And the vision was so overpowering that even Moses said, I am shaking and full of fear. 22 But you have come to the mountain of Zion, to the place of the living God, to the Jerusalem which is in heaven, and to an army of angels which may not be numbered, 23 To the great meeting and church of the first of those who are named in heaven, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of good men made complete, 24 And to Jesus by whom the new agreement has been made between God and man, and to the sign of the blood which says better things than Abel’s blood. 25 See that you give ear to his voice which comes to you. For if those whose ears were shut to the voice which came to them on earth did not go free from punishment, what chance have we of going free if we give no attention to him whose voice comes from heaven? 26 Whose voice was the cause of the shaking of the earth; but now he has made an oath, saying, There will be still one more shaking, not only of the earth, but of heaven. 27 And the words, Still one more, make it clear that there will be a taking away of those things which are shaking, as of things which are made, so that there may be only those things of which no shaking is possible. 28 If then, we have a kingdom which will never be moved, let us have grace, so that we may give God such worship as is pleasing to him with fear and respect: 29 For our God is an all-burning fire.”

Hebrews 12:14-29, BBE.

Top Psalms 113:1-114:8, BBE.

“1 Let the Lord be praised. O you servants of the Lord, give praise to the name of the Lord. 2 Let blessing be on the name of the Lord, from this time and for ever. 3 From the coming up of the sun to its going down, the Lord’s name is to be praised. 4 The Lord is high over all nations, and his glory is higher than the heavens. 5 Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high, 6 Looking down on the heavens, and on the earth? 7 He takes the poor man out of the dust, lifting him up from his low position; 8 To give him a place among the rulers, even with the rulers of his people. 9 He gives the unfertile woman a family, making her a happy mother of children. Give praise to the Lord. 1 When Israel came out of Egypt, the children of Jacob from a people whose language was strange to them; 2 Judah became his holy place, and Israel his kingdom. 3 The sea saw it, and went in flight; Jordan was turned back. 4 The mountains were jumping like goats, and the little hills like lambs. 5 What was wrong with you, O sea, that you went in flight? O Jordan, that you were turned back? 6 You mountains, why were you jumping like goats, and you little hills like lambs? 7 Be troubled, O earth, before the Lord, before the God of Jacob; 8 Who made the rock into a water-spring, and the hard stone into a fountain.”

Top Proverbs 27:18-20, BBE.

“18 Whoever keeps a fig-tree will have its fruit; and the servant waiting on his master will be honoured. 19 Like face looking at face in water, so are the hearts of men to one another. 20 The underworld and Abaddon are never full, and the eyes of man have never enough.”
