MEMORIAL PARSHA OF JESUS CHRIST, Vayahkel-Pekudei at Exodus 35

March 18, 2010
 WELCOME.  MEMORIAL PARSHA OF JESUS CHRIST Vayak’hel-Pekudei, Exodus 35 through Exodus 40
Sabbath, March 5th, 2011, Parsha Pekudei Exodus 38:1-21 through Exodus 40:28.  
Haftorah 1st kings 7:47-50 
In Parsha Pekudei the place of worship is in the tent, until the children of Israel can return to the place that God promises Abraham, the land of the Canaanites. If you will recall Jacob receives the gospel that first began with Abraham concerning the promise of returning to the land, in which the Canaanites were inhabiting. Now if you will remember the root of the problem is that the Canaanites were not given the land, they were already there inhabiting the land but lost the ability to stay in the land because of their impulsive nature to sin which is an abomination before the eyes of God. Yet till this day have justified why they shall remain in the land of govern by Jehovah and given over to another nation non-stop ten thousand years. (Genesis 28:18; Deuteronomy 16:22). I heard one clergy say that Bells have been used by the pagan (priest) to summons the evil spirits, as in poverty. You don’t have to worry about what the word says about bells as long as the commandment is of God. Exodus 39:26 26A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister in; as the LORD commanded Moses. When God gives you a commandment He takes the evil and turns it into Good, God totally transforms your entire mind, body, soul so that you can have the power that is in you. God leaves you totally sufficient with His word and keeps the faith of the Saints while they sleep until the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Maslows’ Hierarchy:
Abraham Maslow

Truth, rather than dishonesty.
Goodness, rather than evil.
Beauty, not ugliness or vulgarity.
Unity, wholeness, and transcendence of opposites, not arbitrariness or forced choices.

Uniqueness, not bland uniformity.
Perfection and necessity, not sloppiness, inconsistency, or accident.
Completion, rather than incompleteness.
Justice and order, not injustice and lawlessness.
Simplicity, not unnecessary complexity.
Richness, not environmental impoverishment.
Effortlessness, not strain.
Playfulness, not grim, humorless, drudgery.
Self-sufficiency, not dependency.
Meaningfulness, rather than senselessness.

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

Jacob prays for himself, which is the House of Jacob and asks God to keep me from evil force to reject Him (Jehovah) bread to Aid against poverty lead me not to rebel whole, with the good and bad still have no diseases all that men away from the house of Jacob, at the might and strength of Jehovah through the divine will of God, and the Judgment of God.


Jacob was in Sukkot and Zaretan which is somewhere near the river of Jabbok in Jordan, and Zaretan is very close to the land of the Phoenicians. Jacob petition to God that he wanted to walk in his way, this is before the Messiah comes onto the scene. He wants to be kept from evil – the kind that forces you reject Him (Jehovah). Jacob wants God to lead him away from rebelling and to be able to take the good and take the bad so that his body may be whole and he can withstand the wiles of the devil. The has bad ideas, bad thoughts, and bad intentions. Nevertheless, the very essence of deliverance the ability to take the good with the bad. Unlike the Devil, the kingdom of God should depend on three things: The torah, Worship, and the loving deeds. Al sh’lo-sha d’va-rim ha-o-lan o-med; Al ha – torah, va’al ha-a-vo-da, v’al g’mi-lut cha-sa-dim.
העולם תלוי בשלושה דברים: על פולחן, תורה, ומעשים לאהוב.

A month later, in chronological order thus occurring after Parsha Pekudei the tribes will be numbered again, and there will be at least 600,000 loosely confederate tribes (see Numbers 11:21;12:37). A total of 22,273 Shekel (Beka’s) were transferred to the Treasury i.e., 3000 shekels = 87,000 shekels; and 730 shekels = to a total of 87,730 shekels, to maintain the portable sanctuary of God leading up to the Physical Temple, and now the Spiritual Temple that can never be replaced by the Church (of God). Thus corresponds with the three digits that also appear in the census which is counted as 601,730 (Numbers 26:51). The stones come from the sojourn of the Israelite 413 year journey throughout the land of Egypt. Now it is time for each person to look in their hearts of heart to return away from the Nile, a source that only you provide and God has nothing to do with it, somehow you have developed knowledge to go around God’s intentional plan. (Exodus 38:24). 


Exodus 39: Encircled in Gold
39:6 Lazuli stonres with gold frames
39:8 Ephod: made of gold, blue, purple, crimson yarn
39:10 Carneliem, chrysolite, emrald
39:11 turquiose, spahire and amethyst
39:12 Jacinth, gate, crystal
39:13 beryl, lapis lazuli, jasper (see Exodus 28)

Exodus 39:1 – The Priestly Garmet
 1And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Exodus 39:2-6 – The Ephod

 2And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
 3And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with cunning work.
 4They made shoulderpieces for it, to couple it together: by the two edges was it coupled together.
 5And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was upon it, was of the same, according to the work thereof; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 6And they wrought onyx stones inclosed in ouches of gold, graven, as signets are graven, with the names of the children of Israel.
 7And he put them on the shoulders of the ephod, that they should be stones for a memorial to the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 8And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
 9It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled

Exodus 39:27-30  – Other Priestly Garments

 27 For Aaron and his sons, they made tunics of fine linen—the work of a weaver— 28 and the turban of fine linen, the linen caps and the undergarments of finely twisted linen. 29 The sash was made of finely twisted linen and blue, purple and scarlet yarn—the work of an embroiderer—as the LORD commanded Moses.
 30 They made the plate, the sacred emblem, out of pure gold and engraved on it, like an inscription on a seal: HOLY TO THE LORD. 31 Then they fastened a blue cord to it to attach it to the turban, as the LORD commanded Moses.

Then Moses went and inspected the tabernacle, for a God that is invisible to the eye. Upon the Commandment of God the tabernacle, like the early predecessor of the church would be certain to have God’s infinite and omnipotent presence. 

Moses gathers all of the people, the congregation of the children of Israel, and said to them, this is the word of God, that has commanded you to observe the Sabbath regulations. Moses said that the LORD had commanded you to do: 2 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death. 3 Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the Sabbath day (Exodus 35:2-3).

I think about the Mosaic Law, and the strict guidelines that need to be followed, and that is a day of rest, and that you do no work on the Sabbath day. In addition, the Sabbath proclaims it is a day to rest – Jesus declares that He is the Lord of the Sabbath. Nevertheless, I always read that Jesus did the really important task of the gospel with the power of God, for other people. If you remember he eradicated diseases. Yet, the bible says that we shall not cook on Saturday’s – the bible doesn’t say that we shouldn’t cook throughout and on the Sabbath. I can think of the many times that I cooked with a gas stove throughout the entire Sabbath, from Friday evening to Saturday evening. In short, I have felt bad about my diet because I have used this time to make food with fire that may be off of many people’s diets, as a practiced religion. For instance, a crab-dip, or a crab sandwich is certainly off of my diet on a religious holiday. Moreover, who can say no to a MacDonald’s filet-o-fish sandwich which in some areas has come back onto a promotion that ended on March 7th 2010 and now ends on March 28th, 2010.

More importantly, I think about the diet that may have consisted of pork sausage for breakfast, mean with pork and hotdogs; and even the scavenger’s seafood: crab, shrimp and lobster – that I love so much. Nevertheless, crab-dip with Matzo’s is certainly off of my diet, and my Matzos’ and the Lord’s Supper somehow don’t mix. I can’t say no to a McDonald’s filet-of-fish sandwich and a side order of French fries. Lastly, I can remember a quick meal of meat franks – chicken, beef and pork, with a cold salad and lentils, i.e. barbecue bake beans with bacon. It is no secret that I love to eat and I have to watch my cholesterol and my weight, but what is easier to cook, other than white meat – a pork chop? As a child, I watched my Mother prepare many Sunday meals that unfortunately the men was vinegar chittlings or pigs feet with string beans and cold potato salad. Like the pork, a meal of barbecue roast chicken, and chicken salad or chicken and dumplings entrée with yams and collard greens were treats in my home for a Sunday dinner. And that’s the difference, my Mother gave reference to Sunday because Jesus rose on third day, after he had been crucified. I always believed everything my Mother did to nurture us was sanctified, as the Apostle Timothy writes, 1 Timothy 4:5 – for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. The desire to eat the foods that are delightful and using a variety of transportation to get food or perform a good deed for another person in the global or local community, may not add up in some peoples judgment.

I argue that just as I enjoy reading all things Michael Jackson, Friday night is Family/Entertainment night, and if maintaining piety and good health with a full stomach violates the Sabbath regulations, then I am happy to be guilty, as they say, “my bag.” Yet a man was stoned to death in ancient times of Israel because he simply gathered sticks on the Sabbath. The Pharisees rejected Jesus’ authority because of his signs, He healed on the Sabbath day, walked in the light, and he was anointed with oil by Mary the sister of Lazarus, whom the Lord Jesus had raised from the dead (John 11:2). Jesus gave Martha a glimpse of heaven, by raising the dead, which is the gospel (John 11:20-27). Jesus responded that whoever believed in Him, shall never die. Martha said that she believed that Jesus is the Son of God. Then Jesus said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard Me, Lazarus come forth.”

To make a long story short, we all know what happened after Lazarus is resurrected from the dead. The priesthood that offers salvation is impeded; however Jesus fixes all of the problems that we will need. There are many people trying to be your eternal priest, but Jesus is the only permanent High Priest. Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead. Many Jews believe in Him, However the Jews that did not believe in Him, rejected the counsel of God and were not baptized and ultimately plotted to kill Him, because He worked many signs. Yet Jesus was sentenced to death because everyone would believe in Him and the Romans would come and take away the non-believers place – in the nation – and the nation. There were people who probably immigrated unto the nationality and would ultimately be exposed, but the seed of David prevails and has its rightful place on the physical throne, but Jesus message is heavenly (John 11).

As for the Sabbath regulation, unfortunately in 2010 the true inhabitants and the princes of Israel and the Promised Land which is formerly the land of Canaan have no land or political power (Isaiah 58:13). The gospel may not be on the ground; but restoration of Israel is underway – the Jewish priesthood is the Kingdom of heaven, and it is at hand. If you feed your faith through hope and positive fellowship with an organized religion, then this is very empowering and a motivational: we all aspire to be children of God, and one big family. I love to drop into churches, because I know someone will see me as their family, regardless of the conferences and the conventions. I know I have my ministry to exalt and you have your ministry to exalt. I promise that I will do nothing but exalt the word, as Christ leads me.

In closing Chapter 35 of the book of Exodus, I will say that there is one thing that has stayed on my mind and that is the perfect tabernacle would be something you never had, fellowship in the Third Temple. While no one is perfect, how better could we have the Third Temple. The tabernacle, the mishkan that Moses opened up at every traveling location away from the immediate four camps of the Israelites was an excellent tool to evangelize, so that people could hear and see faith in action, because the connexus is the lifting up a people out of oppression – from the house of Bondage in Egypt.

In this chapter, the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses. Then everyone came and donated whose spirit was willing and brought the LORD’s offering for the work of the tabernacle of meeting: offering of the LORD also for the service of the tabernacle, and the coordinated holy garments (Revelations 11:15-19).

The women and men that were stirred with wisdom and willingness of heart presented offerings to complete the work of the tabernacle, and time and talent the skill of a workers craftsment to design all the items in the tabernacle, including the utensils were especially designed – for the tabernacle of meeting (Matthew 26:1-16). Lastly, the children of Israel had also brought a free will offering to the LORD, for the material used in the work of the tabernacle and the holy garments; in our next memorial portion you will learn about the free will offering to make atonement for your sins.

Offerings for the tabernacle: The materials for the work of the tabernacle are brought to the skilled artistan and craftsman. The materials needed for the tabernacle of meeting are not in anyway used for idolatry; and the wisdom of God is implanted ini the workers to create a tabernacle of meeting.

Articles of the tabernacle: Sometimes I feel like I was compelled to give more than I had to give, above and beyond a freewill offering, a love offering and ten percent of net income for tithes, to the church of Esau, the gentile church. Yet, I always believed that and I still do believe that when you get Christianity right it makes since to build a place for organized religion to fellowship with visitors and get to know God’s future children, as we are all aspiring to be adopted in the spirit and sons and daughters of the resurrection in Christ. I never let it bother me that I ran into the wrong church, or Pastors claim to have the annointing and asked you to come to it at the altar. The annointing, as you will see is a private interpretation and no one can escort you to it, just like Jesus – the annointing will find you. I believe the money that I gave to the gentile church had nothing to do with the spirit of Wisdom, which is a gift of God. Many times, I would empty my bank account to negative three hundred dollars. The ledger of my bank account would be in the extreme negative (-$300.00) for a while because I did not have enough faith to build a place for the gentiles to worship. All along, the commandment to build a House for God is given to my ancestoras a permanent statute, as the LORD commanded (Exodus 27:9-19; Exodus 31:10; Exodus 27:20-21)

Disciples Reference for Exodus 35: Sabbath Regulation @ Exodus 35:1-3:

Romans 4:14-20 – 14For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:
 15Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.
 16Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
 17(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
 18Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
 19And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:
 20He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; (Romans 4:14-20, King James Version)
Psalm 84:11 11For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. (Psalm 84:11, King James Version)
John 3:10-1710Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
 11For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
 12So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
 13Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
 14If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.
 15For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
 16Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
John 13:10-1717If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. (John 13:10-17, King James Version)
John 5:16-2316And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
 17But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
 18Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
 19Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
 20For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
 21For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
 22For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
 23That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. (John 5:16-23, King James Version)
Isaiah 58:1313If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: (Isaiah 58:13, King James Version)
Luke 6:1-51And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.
 2And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?
 3And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;
 4How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?
 5And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath. (Luke 6:1-5, King James Version)
Mark 3:1-61And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.
 2And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
 3And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
 4And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
 5And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
 6And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him. (Mark 3:1-6, King James Version)
Mark 12:9-149And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:
 10And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.
 11And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
 12How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
 13Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.
 14Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. (Matthew 12:9-14, King James Version)
Matthew 3:11In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, (Matthew 3:1, King James Version)
Mark 4:23 – 23And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. (Matthew 4:23, King James Version)

2nd Samuel 24:18-25 18And Gad came that day to David, and said unto him, Go up, rear an altar unto the LORD in the threshingfloor of Araunah the Jebusite.
 19And David, according to the saying of Gad, went up as the LORD commanded.
 20And Araunah looked, and saw the king and his servants coming on toward him: and Araunah went out, and bowed himself before the king on his face upon the ground.
 21And Araunah said, Wherefore is my lord the king come to his servant? And David said, To buy the threshingfloor of thee, to build an altar unto the LORD, that the plague may be stayed from the people.
 22And Araunah said unto David, Let my lord the king take and offer up what seemeth good unto him: behold, here be oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing instruments and other instruments of the oxen for wood.
 23All these things did Araunah, as a king, give unto the king. And Araunah said unto the king, The LORD thy God accept thee.
 24And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the LORD my God of that which doth cost me nothing. So David bought the threshingfloor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
 25And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD was intreated for the land, and the plague was stayed from Israel. (2 Samuel 24:18-25, King James Version)
1 Kings 7:12-51 – 12And the great court round about was with three rows of hewed stones, and a row of cedar beams, both for the inner court of the house of the LORD, and for the porch of the house.
 13And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre.
 14He was a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work.
 15For he cast two pillars of brass, of eighteen cubits high apiece: and a line of twelve cubits did compass either of them about.
 16And he made two chapiters of molten brass, to set upon the tops of the pillars: the height of the one chapiter was five cubits, and the height of the other chapiter was five cubits:
 17And nets of checker work, and wreaths of chain work, for the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; seven for the one chapiter, and seven for the other chapiter.
 18And he made the pillars, and two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the chapiters that were upon the top, with pomegranates: and so did he for the other chapiter.
 19And the chapiters that were upon the top of the pillars were of lily work in the porch, four cubits.
 20And the chapiters upon the two pillars had pomegranates also above, over against the belly which was by the network: and the pomegranates were two hundred in rows round about upon the other chapiter.
 21And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz.
 22And upon the top of the pillars was lily work: so was the work of the pillars finished.
 23And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.
 24And under the brim of it round about there were knops compassing it, ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about: the knops were cast in two rows, when it was cast.
 25It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.
 26And it was an hand breadth thick, and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies: it contained two thousand baths.
 27And he made ten bases of brass; four cubits was the length of one base, and four cubits the breadth thereof, and three cubits the height of it.
 28And the work of the bases was on this manner: they had borders, and the borders were between the ledges:
 29And on the borders that were between the ledges were lions, oxen, and cherubims: and upon the ledges there was a base above: and beneath the lions and oxen were certain additions made of thin work.
 30And every base had four brasen wheels, and plates of brass: and the four corners thereof had undersetters: under the laver were undersetters molten, at the side of every addition.
 31And the mouth of it within the chapiter and above was a cubit: but the mouth thereof was round after the work of the base, a cubit and an half: and also upon the mouth of it were gravings with their borders, foursquare, not round.
 32And under the borders were four wheels; and the axletrees of the wheels were joined to the base: and the height of a wheel was a cubit and half a cubit.
 33And the work of the wheels was like the work of a chariot wheel: their axletrees, and their naves, and their felloes, and their spokes, were all molten.
 34And there were four undersetters to the four corners of one base: and the undersetters were of the very base itself.
 35And in the top of the base was there a round compass of half a cubit high: and on the top of the base the ledges thereof and the borders thereof were of the same.
 36For on the plates of the ledges thereof, and on the borders thereof, he graved cherubims, lions, and palm trees, according to the proportion of every one, and additions round about.
 37After this manner he made the ten bases: all of them had one casting, one measure, and one size.
 38Then made he ten lavers of brass: one laver contained forty baths: and every laver was four cubits: and upon every one of the ten bases one laver.
 39And he put five bases on the right side of the house, and five on the left side of the house: and he set the sea on the right side of the house eastward over against the south.
 40And Hiram made the lavers, and the shovels, and the basons. So Hiram made an end of doing all the work that he made king Solomon for the house of the LORD:
 41The two pillars, and the two bowls of the chapiters that were on the top of the two pillars; and the two networks, to cover the two bowls of the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; (1 Kings 7:12-51, King James Version)
1st Samuel 2:27-36 – 27And there came a man of God unto Eli, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Did I plainly appear unto the house of thy father, when they were in Egypt in Pharaoh’s house?
 28And did I choose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to offer upon mine altar, to burn incense, to wear an ephod before me? and did I give unto the house of thy father all the offerings made by fire of the children of Israel?
 29Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded in my habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people?
 30Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.
 31Behold, the days come, that I will cut off thine arm, and the arm of thy father’s house, that there shall not be an old man in thine house.
 32And thou shalt see an enemy in my habitation, in all the wealth which God shall give Israel: and there shall not be an old man in thine house for ever.
 33And the man of thine, whom I shall not cut off from mine altar, shall be to consume thine eyes, and to grieve thine heart: and all the increase of thine house shall die in the flower of their age.
 34And this shall be a sign unto thee, that shall come upon thy two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas; in one day they shall die both of them.
 35And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.
 36And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left in thine house shall come and crouch to him for a piece of silver and a morsel of bread, and shall say, Put me, I pray thee, into one of the priests’ offices, that I may eat a piece of bread. (1 Samuel 2:27-36, King James Version)
1st Samuel 4:17-1817And the messenger answered and said, Israel is fled before the Philistines, and there hath been also a great slaughter among the people, and thy two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God is taken.
 18And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years. (1 Samuel 4:17-18, King James Version)
Matthew 13:9,23,41 – 3Yet have I sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said, ye may be ready:
 9(As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.
 23But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
 41The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; (Matthew 13:41, King James Version) (Matthew 13:9-41, King James Version)
2nd Thessalonians 3:7-10 – 7For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
 8Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
 9Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
 10For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. (2 Thessalonians 3:7-10, King James Version)

John 12:42-50 – 42Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
 43For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
 44Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
 45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
 46I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
 47And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
 48He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
 49For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
 50And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. (John 12:42-50, King James Version)
John 1:6-13 – 6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
 7The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
 8He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
 9That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
 10He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
 11He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:6-13, King James Version)
Titus 3:1-8 – 1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
 2To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
 3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
 4But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
 5Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
 6Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
 7That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
 8This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. (Titus 3:1-8, King James Version)
Luke 8:16-1816No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.
 17For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
 18Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have. (Luke 8:16-18, King James Version)
Mark 10:28-3128And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

 30But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
 31Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:28-31, King James Version)

 4Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him,
 5Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
 6This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

 9For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.
 10When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
 11For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.

 12Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee:
 13But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves:
 14For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:
 15Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;

 20But the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb: and if thou redeem him not, then shalt thou break his neck. All the firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And none shall appear before me empty.

2nd Chronicles 4:1-211Moreover he made an altar of brass, twenty cubits the length thereof, and twenty cubits the breadth thereof, and ten cubits the height thereof.
 2Also he made a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits the height thereof; and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.
 3And under it was the similitude of oxen, which did compass it round about: ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about. Two rows of oxen were cast, when it was cast.
 4It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.
 5And the thickness of it was an handbreadth, and the brim of it like the work of the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies; and it received and held three thousand baths.
 6He made also ten lavers, and put five on the right hand, and five on the left, to wash in them: such things as they offered for the burnt offering they washed in them; but the sea was for the priests to wash in.
 7And he made ten candlesticks of gold according to their form, and set them in the temple, five on the right hand, and five on the left.
 8He made also ten tables, and placed them in the temple, five on the right side, and five on the left. And he made an hundred basons of gold.
 9Furthermore he made the court of the priests, and the great court, and doors for the court, and overlaid the doors of them with brass.
 10And he set the sea on the right side of the east end, over against the south.
 11And Huram made the pots, and the shovels, and the basons. And Huram finished the work that he was to make for king Solomon for the house of God;
 12To wit, the two pillars, and the pommels, and the chapiters which were on the top of the two pillars, and the two wreaths to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were on the top of the pillars;
 13And four hundred pomegranates on the two wreaths; two rows of pomegranates on each wreath, to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were upon the pillars.
 14He made also bases, and lavers made he upon the bases;
 15One sea, and twelve oxen under it.
 16The pots also, and the shovels, and the fleshhooks, and all their instruments, did Huram his father make to king Solomon for the house of the LORD of bright brass.
 17In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zeredathah.
 18Thus Solomon made all these vessels in great abundance: for the weight of the brass could not be found out.
 19And Solomon made all the vessels that were for the house of God, the golden altar also, and the tables whereon the shewbread was set;
 20Moreover the candlesticks with their lamps, that they should burn after the manner before the oracle, of pure gold;
 21And the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs, made he of gold, and that perfect gold; (2 Chronicles 4:1-21, King James Version)

 21And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz.
 22And upon the top of the pillars was lily work: so was the work of the pillars finished.
 23And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.
 24And under the brim of it round about there were knops compassing it, ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about: the knops were cast in two rows, when it was cast.
 25It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.
 26And it was an hand breadth thick, and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies: it contained two thousand baths. (1 Kings 7:20-26, King James Version)
1st Kings 12:25-3325Then Jeroboam built Shechem in mount Ephraim, and dwelt therein; and went out from thence, and built Penuel.
 26And Jeroboam said in his heart, Now shall the kingdom return to the house of David:
 27If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of this people turn again unto their lord, even unto Rehoboam king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of Judah.
 28Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
 29And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan.
 30And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan.
 31And he made an house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi.
 32And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made.
 33So he offered upon the altar which he had made in Bethel the fifteenth day of the eighth month, even in the month which he had devised of his own heart; and ordained a feast unto the children of Israel: and he offered upon the altar, and burnt incense. (1 Kings 12:25-33, King James Version)
