33 This is the blessing with which Moses ythe man of God blessed the people of Israel before his death. 2 He said,
z“The Lord came from Sinai
and dawned from Seir upon us;1
he came afrom the ten thousands of holy ones,
with flaming fire2 at his right hand.
4 when eMoses commanded us a law,
6 h“Let Reuben live, and not die,
With your hands contend7 for him,
8 And iof Levi he said,
kwhom you tested at Massah,
lhe disowned his brothers
For mthey observed your word
10 nThey shall teach Jacob your rules
othey shall put incense before you
and pwhole burnt offerings on your altar.
and qaccept the work of his hands;
12 rOf Benjamin he said,
The High God9 surrounds him all day long,
13 And sof Joseph he said,
t“Blessed by the Lord be his land,
and the abundance of vthe everlasting hills,
16 with the best gifts of the earth and wits fullness
and the favor of xhim who dwells in the bush.
and his horns are the horns of a zwild ox;
with them ahe shall gore the peoples,
bthey are the ten thousands of Ephraim,
c“Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out,
19 They shall call peoples dto their mountain;
there they offer eright sacrifices;
20 And fof Gad he said,
Gad crouches glike a lion;
21 hHe chose the best of the land for himself,
and ihe came with the heads of the people,
22 And jof Dan he said,
k“Dan is a lion's cub
lthat leaps from Bashan.”
23 And mof Naphtali he said,
24 And oof Asher he said,
and let him pdip his foot in oil.
swho rides through the heavens to your help,
and underneath are the everlasting arms.14
29 Happy are you, O Israel! wWho is like you,
a people xsaved by the Lord,
ythe shield of your help,
34 Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab ato Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho. And the Lord showed him all the land, Gilead as far as Dan, 2 all Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah bas far as the western sea, 3 cthe Negeb, and dthe Plain, that is, the Valley of Jericho ethe city of palm trees, as far as fZoar. 4 And the Lord said to him, g“This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, ‘I will give it to your offspring.’ hI have let you see it with your eyes, but iyou shall not go over there.” 5 So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord, 6 and he buried him in the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth-peor; but jno one knows the place of his burial to this day. 7 kMoses was 120 years old when he died. lHis eye was undimmed, and his vigor unabated. 8 And the people of Israel mwept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days. Then the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.
9 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of nthe spirit of wisdom, for oMoses had laid his hands on him. So pthe people of Israel obeyed him and did as the Lord had commanded Moses. 10 And there has not qarisen a prophet since in Israel like Moses, rwhom the Lord knew face to face, 11 none like him for all sthe signs and the wonders that the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land, 12 and for all the mighty power and all the great deeds of terror that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
145 With my swhole heart I cry; answer me, O Lord!
I will tkeep your statutes.
147 I rise before udawn and cry for help;
I vhope in your words.
148 My eyes are awake before wthe watches of the night,
151 But zyou are near, O Lord,

that you have bfounded them forever.
153 Look on my caffliction and deliver me,
for dI do not forget your law.
154 ePlead my cause and redeem me;
fgive me life according to your promise!
155 gSalvation is far from the wicked,
hfor they do not seek your statutes.
156 iGreat is your mercy, O Lord;
fgive me life according to your rules.
157 jMany are my persecutors and my adversaries,
but I do not kswerve from your testimonies.
159 Consider how I nlove your precepts!
fGive me life according to your steadfast love.
and every one of your qrighteous rules endures forever.
but my heart tstands in awe of your words.
162 I trejoice at your word
like one who ufinds great spoil.
but I love vyour law.
for your qrighteous rules.
165 Great wpeace have those who love your law;
xnothing can make them stumble.
166 I yhope for your salvation, O Lord,

zfor all my ways are before you.
169 Let my acry come before you, O Lord;
ddeliver me according to your word.
171 My lips will epour forth praise,
for you fteach me your statutes.
for gall your commandments are right.
for I have hchosen your precepts.
174 I ilong for your salvation, O Lord,
and your law is my jdelight.
176 I have kgone astray like a lost sheep; seek your servant,

hthe wealth of the nations shall come to you.

lThey shall bring gold and frankincense,
7 All the flocks of mKedar shall be gathered to you;

othey shall come up with acceptance on my altar,
pand I will beautify my beautiful house.
and qlike doves to their windows?
9 For rthe coastlands shall hope for me,

tto bring your children from afar,
because uhe has made you beautiful.
10 vForeigners shall build up your walls,
and vtheir kings shall minister to you;
11 wYour gates shall be open continually;
wthat people may bring to you the wealth of the nations,
12 xFor the nation and kingdom
13 yThe glory of Lebanon shall come to you,
the cypress, the plane, and zthe pine,
14 aThe sons of those who afflicted you
band all who despised you
cthey shall call you the City of the Lord,
15 dWhereas you have been forsaken and hated,
eI will make you majestic forever,
16 fYou shall suck the milk of nations;

8 When he came down from the mountain, dgreat crowds followed him. 2 eAnd behold, a leper1 came to him and fknelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” 3 And Jesus2 stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Jesus said to him, g“See that you say nothing to anyone, but go, hshow yourself to the priest and ioffer the gift that Moses commanded, jfor a proof to them.”
5 kWhen he had entered Capernaum, a centurion came forward to him, appealing to him, 6 “Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, suffering terribly.” 7 And he said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8 But the centurion replied, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof, but lonly say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I too am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my servant,3 ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 10 When Jesus heard this, mhe marveled and said to those who followed him, “Truly, I tell you, with nno one in Israel4 have I found such faith. 11 I tell you, omany will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, 12 pwhile the sons of the kingdom qwill be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place rthere will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” 13 And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; let it be done for you sas you have believed.” tAnd the servant was healed at that very moment.
14 uAnd when Jesus entered Peter's house, he saw vhis mother-in-law lying sick with a fever. 15 He wtouched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and began to serve him. 16 That evening they brought to him many who were xoppressed by demons, and he cast out the spirits ywith a word and healed all who were sick. 17 zThis was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: a“He took our illnesses and bore our diseases.”
18 Now bwhen Jesus saw a crowd around him, che gave orders to go over to the other side. 19 dAnd a scribe came up and said to him, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” 20 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” 21 Another of the disciples said to him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 22 And Jesus said to him, “Follow me, and leave ethe dead to bury their own dead.”
23 fAnd when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. 24 And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but ghe was asleep. 25 And they went and woke him, saying, h“Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” 26 And he said to them, “Why are you iafraid, jO you of little faith?” Then he rose and krebuked the winds and the sea, and lthere was a great calm. 27 And the men mmarveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even nwinds and sea obey him?”
28 oAnd when he came to the other side, to the country of the Gadarenes,5 two pdemon-possessed6 men met him, coming out of the tombs, so fierce that no one could pass that way. 29 And behold, they qcried out, “What have you to do with us, rO Son of God? Have you come here to torment us sbefore the time?” 30 Now a herd of many pigs was feeding at some distance from them. 31 And the demons begged him, saying, “If you cast us out, send us away into the herd of pigs.” 32 And he said to them, “Go.” So they came out and went into the pigs, and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned in the waters. 33 The herdsmen fled, and going into the city they told everything, especially what had happened to the tdemon-possessed men. 34 And behold, all the city came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him, uthey begged him to leave their region.
