Proverbs 4:20-27 My son, pay attention to what I am saying;
incline your ear to my words.
21 Don’t let them out of your sight,
keep them deep in your heart;
22 for they are life to those who find them
and health to their whole being. 23 Above everything else, guard your heart;
for it is the source of life’s consequences.
24 Keep crooked speech out of your mouth,
banish deceit from your lips.
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead,
fix your gaze on what lies in front of you.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in Adonai with all your heart; do not rely on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him; then he will level your paths. Two verses in Proverbs that are probable the most quoted and well-known. This version is the Complete Jewish Bible. I don't always use it. I also appreciate the ESV and for certain situations The Passion Translation. However, I appreciate these two verses in the CJB. I love the word Adonai. When I sing I love to use the
Matthew 26:20-25 20 When evening came, Yeshua reclined with the twelve talmidim (students/disciples); 21 and as they were eating, he said, “Yes, I tell you that one of you is going to betray me.” 22 They became terribly upset and began asking him, one after the other, “Lord, you don’t mean me, do you?” 23 He answered, “The one who dips his matzah in the dish with me is the one who will betray me. 24 The Son of Man will die just as the Tanakh (Bible) says he will; but woe to t
Matthew 24:32-44 32 “Now let the fig tree teach you its lesson: when its branches begin to sprout and leaves appear, you know that summer is approaching. 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you are to know that the time is near, right at the door. 34 Yes! I tell you that this people will certainly not pass away before all these things happen. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. 36 “But when that day and hour will come, no one
Matthew 23:33-39 33 “You snakes! Sons of snakes! How can you escape being condemned to Gei-Hinnom (hell)? 34 Therefore I am sending you prophets and sages and Torah-teachers — some of them you will kill, indeed, you will have them executed on stakes as criminals; some you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town. 35 And so, on you will fall the guilt for all the innocent blood that has ever been shed on earth, from the blood of innocent Hevel (Abel) to the bl
Matthew 23:23-26 23 “Woe to you hypocritical Torah-teachers and P’rushim (Pharisees)! You pay your tithes of mint, dill and cumin; but you have neglected the weightier matters of the Torah — justice, mercy, trust. These are the things you should have attended to — without neglecting the others! 24 Blind guides! — straining out a gnat, meanwhile swallowing a camel! 25 “Woe to you hypocritical Torah-teachers and P’rushim! You clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but insid
Matthew 19:16-22 16 A man approached Yeshua and said, “Rabbi, what good thing should I do in order to have eternal life?” He said to him,17 “Why are you asking me about good? There is One who is good! But if you want to obtain eternal life, observe the mitzvot (teachings/commands).”18 The man asked him, “Which ones?” and Yeshua said, “Don’t murder, don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, don’t give false testimony, 19 honor father and mother and love your neighbor as yourself.” 2
Matthew 18:8-11 8 “So if your hand or foot becomes a snare for you, cut it off and throw it away! Better that you should be maimed or crippled and obtain eternal life than keep both hands or both feet and be thrown into everlasting fire! 9 And if your eye is a snare for you, gouge it out and fling it away! Better that you should be one-eyed and obtain eternal life than keep both eyes and be thrown into the fire of Gei-Hinnom (hell). 10 See that you never despise one of these
Matthew 13:10-17 10 Then the talmidim (disciples/students) came and asked Yeshua, “Why are you speaking to them in parables?” 11 He answered, “Because it has been given to you to know the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven, but it has not been given to them. 12 For anyone who has something will be given more, so that he will have plenty; but from anyone who has nothing, even what he does have will be taken away. 13 Here is why I speak to them in parables: they look without seei
Matthew 12:1-8 One Shabbat during that time, Yeshua was walking through some wheat fields. His talmidim (disciples/students) were hungry, so they began picking heads of grain and eating them. 2 On seeing this, the P’rushim (Pharisees) said to him, “Look! Your talmidim are violating Shabbat!” 3 But he said to them, “Haven’t you ever read what David did when he and those with him were hungry? 4 He entered the House of God and ate the Bread of the Presence!” — which was prohibit
