Top Ezekiel 35:1-36:38, BBE.

“1 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Son of man, let your face be turned to Mount Seir, and be a prophet against it, 3 And say to it, This is what the Lord has said: See, I am against you, O Mount Seir, and my hand will be stretched out against you, and I will make you a waste and a cause for wonder. 4 I will make your towns unpeopled and you will be a waste; and you will be certain that I am the Lord. 5 Because yours has been a hate without end, and you have given up the children of Israel to the power of the sword in the time of their trouble, in the time of the punishment of the end: 6 For this cause, by my life, says the Lord, because you have been sinning through blood, blood will come after you. 7 And I will make Mount Seir a cause for wonder and a waste, cutting off from it all comings and goings. 8 I will make his mountains full of those who have been put to death; in your valleys and in all your water-streams men will be falling by the sword. 9 I will make you waste for ever, and your towns will be unpeopled: and you will be certain that I am the Lord. 10 Because you have said, The two nations and the two countries are to be mine, and we will take them for our heritage; though the Lord was there: 11 For this cause, by my life, says the Lord, I will do to you as you have done in your wrath and in your envy, which you have made clear in your hate for them; and I will make clear to you who I am when you are judged by me. 12 And you will see that I the Lord have had knowledge of all the bitter things which you have said against the mountains of Israel, saying, They have been made waste, they are given to us to take for our heritage. 13 And you have made yourselves great against me with your mouths, increasing your words against me; and it has come to my ears. 14 This is what the Lord has said: Because you were glad over my land when it was a waste, so will I do to you: 15 You will become a waste, O Mount Seir, and all Edom, even all of it: and you will be certain that I am the Lord. 1 And you, son of man, be a prophet about the mountains of Israel, and say, You mountains of Israel, give ear to the word of the Lord: 2 This is what the Lord has said: Because your hater has said against you, Aha! and, The old waste places are our heritage, we have taken them: 3 For this cause be a prophet, and say, This is what the Lord has said: Because, even because they have been glad over you and put you to shame on every side, because you have become a heritage for the rest of the nations, and you are taken up on the lips of talkers and in the evil talk of the people: 4 For this reason, you mountains of Israel, give ear to the word of the Lord; this is what the Lord has said to the mountains and to the hills, to the streams and to the valleys, to the unpeopled wastes and to the towns where no one is living, from which the goods have been taken and which have been put to shame by the rest of the nations who are round about: 5 For this cause the Lord has said: Truly, in the heat of my bitter feeling I have said things against the rest of the nations and against all Edom, who have taken my land as a heritage for themselves with the joy of all their heart, and with bitter envy of soul have made attacks on it: 6 For this cause be a prophet about the land of Israel, and say to the mountains and to the hills, to the streams and to the valleys, This is what the Lord has said: Truly, in my bitter feeling and in my wrath I have said these things, because you have undergone the shame of the nations: 7 For this cause the Lord has said, See, I have taken an oath that the nations which are round about you are themselves to undergo the shame which they have put on you. 8 But you, O mountains of Israel, will put out your branches and give your fruit to my people Israel; for they are ready to come. 9 For truly I am for you, and I will be turned to you, and you will be ploughed and planted: 10 And I will let your numbers be increased, all the children of Israel, even all of them: and the towns will be peopled and the waste places will have buildings; 11 Man and beast will be increased in you, and they will have offspring and be fertile: I will make you thickly peopled as you were before, and will do more for you than at the first: and you will be certain that I am the Lord. 12 Yes, I will have you walked on by the feet of men, even my people Israel; they will have you for a heritage and you will be theirs, and never again will you take their children from them. 13 This is what the Lord has said: Because they say to you, You, O land, are the destruction of men, causing loss of children to your nation; 14 For this reason you will no longer take the lives of men and will never again be the cause of loss of children to your nation, says the Lord. 15 And I will not let the shaming of the nations come to your ears, and no longer will you be looked down on by the peoples, says the Lord. 16 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 17 Son of man, when the children of Israel were living in their land, they made it unclean by their way and their acts: their way before me was as when a woman is unclean at the time when she is kept separate. 18 So I let loose my wrath on them because of those whom they had violently put to death in the land, and because they had made it unclean with their images: 19 And I sent them in flight among the nations and wandering through the countries: I was their judge, rewarding them for their way and their acts. 20 And when they came among the nations, wherever they went, they made my holy name unclean, when it was said of them, These are the people of the Lord who have gone out from his land. 21 But I had pity for my holy name which the children of Israel had made unclean wherever they went. 22 For this cause say to the children of Israel, This is what the Lord has said: I am doing this, not because of you, O children of Israel, but because of my holy name, which you have made unclean among the nations wherever you went. 23 And I will make holy my great name which has been made unclean among the nations, which you have made unclean among them; and it will be clear to the nations that I am the Lord, says the Lord, when I make myself holy in you before their eyes. 24 For I will take you out from among the nations, and get you together from all the countries, and take you into your land. 25 And I will put clean water on you so that you may be clean: from all your unclean ways and from all your images I will make you clean. 26 And I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you: I will take away the heart of stone from your flesh, and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my spirit in you, causing you to be guided by my rules, and you will keep my orders and do them. 28 So that you may go on living in the land which I gave to your fathers; and you will be to me a people, and I will be to you a God. 29 And I will make you free from all your unclean ways: and at my voice the grain will come up and be increased, and I will not let you be short of food. 30 And I will make the tree give more fruit and the field fuller produce, and no longer will you be shamed among the nations for need of food. 31 And at the memory of your evil ways and your wrongdoings, you will have bitter hate for yourselves because of your evil-doings and your disgusting ways, O children of Israel. 32 Not because of you am I doing it, says the Lord; let it be clear to you, and be shamed and made low because of your ways, O children of Israel. 33 This is what the Lord has said: In the day when I make you clean from all your evil-doings I will let the towns be peopled and there will be building on the waste places. 34 And the land which was waste will be farmed, in place of being a waste in the eyes of everyone who went by. 35 And they will say, This land which was waste has become like the garden of Eden; and the towns which were unpeopled and wasted and pulled down are walled and peopled. 36 Then the rest of the nations round about you will be certain that I the Lord am the builder of the places which were pulled down and the planter of that which was waste: I the Lord have said it, and I will do it. 37 This is what the Lord has said: The children of Israel will again make prayer to me for this, that I may do it for them; I will make them increased with men like a flock. 38 Like sheep for the offerings, like the sheep of Jerusalem at her fixed feasts, so the unpeopled towns will be made full of men: and they will be certain that I am the Lord.”

Top James 1:1-18, BBE.

“1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, sends words of love to the twelve tribes of the Jews living in all parts of the earth. 2 Let it be all joy to you, my brothers, when you undergo tests of every sort; 3 Because you have the knowledge that the testing of your faith gives you the power of going on in hope; 4 But let this power have its full effect, so that you may be made complete, needing nothing. 5 But if any man among you is without wisdom, let him make his request to God, who gives freely to all without an unkind word, and it will be given to him. 6 Let him make his request in faith, doubting nothing; for he who has doubt in his heart is like the waves of the sea, which are troubled by the driving of the wind. 7 Let it not seem to such a man that he will get anything from the Lord; 8 For there is a division in his mind, and he is uncertain in all his ways. 9 But let the brother of low position be glad that he is lifted up; 10 But the man of wealth, that he is made low; because like the flower of the grass he will come to his end. 11 For when the sun comes up with its burning heat, the grass gets dry and the grace of its form is gone with the falling flower; so the man of wealth comes to nothing in his ways. 12 There is a blessing on the man who undergoes testing; because, if he has God’s approval, he will be given the crown of life, which the Lord has said he will give to those who have love for him. 13 Let no man say when he is tested, I am tested by God; for it is not possible for God to be tested by evil, and he himself puts no man to such a test: 14 But every man is tested when he is turned out of the right way by the attraction of his desire. 15 Then when its time comes, desire gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is of full growth, gives birth to death. 16 Do not be turned from the right way, dear brothers. 17 Every good and true thing is given to us from heaven, coming from the Father of lights, with whom there is no change or any shade made by turning. 18 Of his purpose he gave us being, by his true word, so that we might be, in a sense, the first-fruits of all the things which he had made.”

James 1:1-18, BBE.

Top Psalms 116:1-19, BBE.

“1 I have given my love to the Lord, because he has given ear to the voice of my cry and my prayer. 2 He has let my request come before him, and I will make my prayer to him all my days. 3 The nets of death were round me, and the pains of the underworld had me in their grip; I was full of trouble and sorrow. 4 Then I made my prayer to the Lord, saying, O Lord, take my soul out of trouble. 5 The Lord is full of grace and righteousness; truly, he is a God of mercy. 6 The Lord keeps the simple; I was made low, and he was my saviour. 7 Come back to your rest, O my soul; for the Lord has given you your reward. 8 You have taken my soul from the power of death, keeping my eyes from weeping, and my feet from falling. 9 I will go before the Lord in the land of the living. 10 I still had faith, though I said, I am in great trouble; 11 Though I said in my fear, All men are false. 12 What may I give to the Lord for all the good things which he has done for me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and give praise to the name of the Lord. 14 I will make the offering of my oath to the Lord, even before all his people. 15 Dear in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints. 16 O Lord, truly I am your servant; I am your servant, the son of her who is your servant; by you have my cords been broken. 17 I will give an offering of praise to you, and make my prayer in the name of the Lord. 18 I will make the offerings of my oath, even before all his people; 19 In the Lord’s house, even in Jerusalem. Praise be to the Lord.”

Psalms 116:1-19, BBE.

Top Proverbs 27:23-27, BBE.

“23 Take care to have knowledge about the condition of your flocks, looking well after your herds; 24 For wealth is not for ever, and money does not go on for all generations. 25 The grass comes up and the young grass is seen, and the mountain plants are got in. 26 The lambs are for your clothing, and the he-goats make the value of a field: 27 There will be goats’ milk enough for your food, and for the support of your servant-girls.”

Proverbs 27:23-27, BBE.
