Prophets: Isaiah 52:13 – 54:10

Isa 52:13  See, My Servant shall work wisely, He shall be exalted and lifted up and very high.

Isa 52:14  As many were astonished at You – so the disfigurement beyond any man’s and His form beyond the sons of men –

Isa 52:15  He shall likewise startle many nations. Sovereigns shut their mouths at Him, for what had not been recounted to them they shall see, and what they had not heard they shall understand.

Isa 53:1  Who has believed our report? And to whom was the arm of יהוה revealed?

Isa 53:2  For He grew up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or splendour that we should look upon Him, nor appearance that we should desire Him –

Isa 53:3  despised and rejected by men, a man of pains and knowing sickness. And as one from whom the face is hidden, being despised, and we did not consider Him.

Isa 53:4  Truly, He has borne our sicknesses and carried our pains. Yet we reckoned Him stricken, smitten by Elohim, and afflicted.

Isa 53:5  But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our crookednesses. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

Isa 53:6  We all, like sheep, went astray, each one of us has turned to his own way. And יהוה has laid on Him the crookedness of us all.

Isa 53:7  He was oppressed and He was afflicted, but He did not open His mouth. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, but He did not open His mouth.

Isa 53:8  He was taken from prison and from judgment. And as for His generation, who considered that He shall be cut off from the land of the living? For the transgression of My people He was stricken.

Isa 53:9  And He was appointed a grave with the wrong, and with the rich at His death, because He had done no violence, nor was deceit in His mouth1. Footnote: 1See 1 Peter 2:22.

Isa 53:10  But יהוה was pleased to crush Him, He laid sickness on Him, that when He made Himself an offering for guilt, He would see a seed, He would prolong His days and the pleasure of יהוה prosper in His hand.

Isa 53:11  He would see the result of the suffering of His life and be satisfied. Through His knowledge My righteous Servant makes many righteous, and He bears their crookednesses.

Isa 53:12  Therefore I give Him a portion among the great, and He divides the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His being unto death, and He was counted with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Isa 54:1  “Sing, O barren one, you who did not bear! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you who have not been in labour! For the children of the deserted one are more than the children of the married woman,” said יהוה.

Isa 54:2  “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not. Lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.

Isa 54:3  “For you shall break forth to the right and to the left, and your seed inherit the nations, and make the deserted cities inhabited.

Isa 54:4  “Do not fear, for you shall not be put to shame, nor hurt, you shall not be humiliated. For the shame of your youth you shall forget, and not remember the reproach of your widowhood any more.

Isa 54:5  “For your Maker is your husband, יהוה of hosts is His Name, and the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl is your Redeemer. He is called the Elohim of all the earth.

Isa 54:6  “For יהוה has called you like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, like a wife of youth when you were refused,” declares your Elohim.

Isa 54:7  “For a little while I have forsaken you, but with great compassion I shall gather you.

Isa 54:8  “In an overflow of wrath I hid My face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I shall have compassion on you,” said יהוה, your Redeemer.

Isa 54:9  “For this is the waters of Noaḥ to Me, in that I have sworn that the waters of Noaḥ would never again cover the earth, so have I sworn not to be wroth with you, nor to rebuke you.

Isa 54:10  “For though the mountains be removed and the hills be shaken, My kindness is not removed from you, nor is My covenant of peace shaken,” said יהוה, who has compassion on you.

Brit Hadasha: Matthew 5:31-32

Mat 5:31  “And it has been said, ‘Whoever puts away his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ Deu_24:1. 

Mat 5:32  “But I say to you that whoever puts away his wife, except for the matter of whoring,h makes her commit adultery. And whoever marries a woman who has been put away commits adultery. Footnote: hSee also Mat_19:9 and Deu_24:1. 

Matthew 19:3-12

Mat 19:3  And the Pharisees came to Him, trying Him, and saying to Him, “Is it right for a man to put away his wife for every reason?” 

Mat 19:4  And He answering, said to them, “Did you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female, Gen_1:27; Gen_5:2. 

Mat 19:5  and said, ‘For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? Gen_2:24. 

Mat 19:6  “So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what Elohim has joined together, let man not separate.” 

Mat 19:7  They said to Him, “Why then did Mosheh command to give a certificate of divorce, Deu_24:1, Deu_24:3 and to put her away?” 

Mat 19:8  He said to them, “Because of the hardness of your hearts, Mosheh allowed you to put away your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. 

Mat 19:9  “And I say to you, whoever puts away his wife, except on the ground of whoring, and marries another, commits adultery. And whoever marries her who has been put away commits adultery.”a Footnote: aSee footnote Mat_5:32. 

Mat 19:10  His taught ones said to Him, “If such is the case of the man with his wife, it is good not to marry.” 

Mat 19:11  And He said to them, “Not all receive this word, but only those to whom it has been given, 

Mat 19:12  for there are eunuchs who were so born from their mother’s womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the reign of the heavens. He who is able to receive it, let him receive it.” 

Matthew 22:23-32

Mat 22:23  On that day Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Him and asked Him, 

Mat 22:24  saying, “Teacher, Mosheh said that if anyone should die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise offspring for his brother. Deu_25:5. 

Mat 22:25  “And there were with us seven brothers, and the first died after he had married, and having no children, left his wife to his brother. 

Mat 22:26  “In the same way the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. 

Mat 22:27  “And last of all the woman died too. 

Mat 22:28  “At the resurrection, then, whose wife of the seven shall she be – for all had her?” 

Mat 22:29  And יהושע answering, said to them, “You go astray, not knowing the Scripturesc nor the power of Elohim. Footnote: c Mar_12:24. 

Mat 22:30  “For in the resurrection they do not marry, nor are they given in marriage, but are as messengers of Elohim in heaven. 

Mat 22:31  “And concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by Elohim, saying, 

Mat 22:32  ‘I am the Elohim of Aḇraham, and the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Ya‛aqoḇ’? Exo_3:6. Elohim is not the Elohim of the dead, but of the living.” 

Luke 23:1-25

Luk 23:1  And the entire assembly of them, having risen up, led Him to Pilate, 

Luk 23:2  and began to accuse Him, saying, “We found this one perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Messiah, a Sovereign.” 

Luk 23:3  And Pilate asked Him, saying, “Are You the Sovereign of the Yehuḏim?” And answering him He said, “You say it.” 

Luk 23:4  And Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowd, “I find no guilt in this Man.” 

Luk 23:5  But they were insisting, saying, “He stirs up the people, teaching through all Yehuḏah, beginning from Galil unto this place.” 

Luk 23:6  And when Pilate heard of Galil, he asked if the Man were a Galilean. 

Luk 23:7  And when he learned that He was under the authority of Herodes, he sent Him to Herodes, who was also in Yerushalayim in those days. 

Luk 23:8  And seeing יהושע, Herodes rejoiced greatly, for a long time he had wished to see Him, because he had heard much about Him, and was anticipating to see some miracle done by Him, 

Luk 23:9  and was questioning Him with many words, but He gave him no answer. 

Luk 23:10  And the chief priests and the scribes stood, accusing Him intensely. 

Luk 23:11  And Herodes, with his soldiers, made light of Him and mocked Him, dressing Him in a splendid robe, and sent Him back to Pilate. 

Luk 23:12  And on that day Pilate and Herodes became friends with each other, for before that they had been at enmity with each other. 

Luk 23:13  And Pilate, having called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 

Luk 23:14  said to them, “You brought this Man to me, as one who turns away the people. And look, I have examined Him in your presence and have found no guilt in this Man regarding the charges which you make against Him, 

Luk 23:15  and neither did Herodes, for I sent you back to him. And look, He has done none at all deserving death. 

Luk 23:16  “Having disciplined Him, then, I shall release Him” – 

Luk 23:17  for he had to release one to them at the festival. 

Luk 23:18  And they cried out, all together, saying, “Away with this One, and release to us Barabba” 

Luk 23:19  (who had been thrown into prison for a certain uprising made in the city, and for murder). 

Luk 23:20  Wishing to release יהושע, then, Pilate appealed to them again. 

Luk 23:21  But they were calling out, saying, “Impale! Impale Him!” 

Luk 23:22  And he said to them the third time, “Why, what evil has He done? I have found no reason for death in Him. Having disciplined Him then, I shall release Him.” 

Luk 23:23  But with loud voices they insisted, asking for Him to be impaled. And the voices of these men and of the chief priests were prevailing. 

Luk 23:24  And Pilate pronounced sentence that what they asked should be done. 

Luk 23:25  And he released the one they asked for, who for uprising and murder had been thrown into prison, but he handed יהושע over to their wishes. 

1 Corinthians 5:1-13

1Co 5:1  It is commonly reported that there is whoring among you, and such whoring as is not even named among the nations, so as one to have his father’s wife! 

1Co 5:2  And you have been puffed up, and did not rather mourn, so that he who has done this deed, be removed from among you! 

1Co 5:3  For I indeed, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged the one who did this, as though I were present. 

1Co 5:4  In the Name of our Master יהושע Messiah, when you are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Master יהושע Messiah, 

1Co 5:5  deliver such a one to Satan for destruction of the flesh, in order that his spirit be saved in the day of the Master יהושע. 

1Co 5:6  Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the entire lump? 

1Co 5:7  Therefore cleanse out the old leaven, so that you are a new lump, as you are unleavened. For also Messiah our Pěsaḥ was slaughtered for us. 

1Co 5:8  So then let us celebrate the festival, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of evil and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 

1Co 5:9  I wrote to you in my letter not to keep company with those who whore. 

1Co 5:10  And I certainly did not mean with those of this world who whore, or with the greedy of gain, or swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 

1Co 5:11  But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone called ’a brother,’ if he is one who whores, or greedy of gain, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler – not even to eat with such a one. 

1Co 5:12  For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are inside? 

1Co 5:13  But Elohim judges those who are outside. And put away the wicked one from among you!a Deu_13:5. Footnote: aSee Deu_17:7, Deu_17:12, Deu_19:19, Deu_21:21, Deu_22:21. 

1 Corinthians 9:3-18

1Co 9:3  My defence to those who examine me is this: 

1Co 9:4  Do we not have a right to eat and drink? 

1Co 9:5  Do we not have a right to take along a sister – a wife – as do also the other emissaries, and the brothers of the Master, and Kěpha? 

1Co 9:6  Or do only Barnaḇa and I have no right to refrain from working? 

1Co 9:7  Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Or who shepherds a flock and does not feed on the milk of the flock? 

1Co 9:8  Do I say this as a man? Or does not the Torah say the same too? 

1Co 9:9  For it has been written in the Torah of Mosheh, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.” Deu_25:4 Is it about oxen Elohim is concerned? 

1Co 9:10  Or does He say it because of us all? For this was written because of us, that he who ploughs should plough in expectation, and the thresher in expectation of sharing. 

1Co 9:11  If we have sown spiritual seed among you, is it too much if we reap material goods from you? 

1Co 9:12  If others share authority over you, should not rather we? But we have not used this authority, but we put up with all, lest we hinder the Good News of Messiah. 

1Co 9:13  Do you not know that those serving the Set-apart Place eat from the Set-apart Place, and those attending at the slaughter-place have their share of the offerings of the slaughter-place? 

1Co 9:14  So also the Master instituted that those announcing the Good News should live from the Good News. 

1Co 9:15  But I have used none of these, nor have I written this that it should be done so to me. For it would be better for me to die than that anyone should make my boasting empty. 

1Co 9:16  For if I bring the Good News, it is no boasting for me, for necessity is laid on me, and it is woe to me if I do not bring the Good News! 

1Co 9:17  For if I do this voluntarily I have a reward, but if not voluntarily, I am entrusted with a management. 

1Co 9:18  What then is my reward? That in bringing the Good News, I should offer the Good News of Messiah without cost, so as not to abuse my authority in the Good News. 

Galatians 3:9-14

Gal 3:9  so that those who are of belief are blessed with Aḇraham, the believer. 

Gal 3:10  For as many as are of works of Torah are under the curse, for it has been written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all that has been written in the Book of the Torah, to do them.” Deu_27:26. 

Gal 3:11  And that no one is declared right by Torah before Elohim is clear, for “The righteous shall live by belief.” Hab_2:4. 

Gal 3:12  And the Torah is not of belief, but “The man who does them shall live by them.” Lev_18:5. 

Gal 3:13  Messiah redeemed us from the curse of the Torah, having become a curse for us – for it has been written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs upon a tree.” – Deu_21:23. 

Gal 3:14  in order that the blessing of Aḇraham might come upon the nations in Messiah יהושע, to receive the promise of the Spirit through belief. 

Aharonic Blessing

Num 6:22  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

Num 6:23  “Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying, ‘This is how you bless the children of Yisra’ĕl. Say to them:

Num 6:24  “יהוה bless you and guard you;

Num 6:25  יהוה make His face shine upon you, and show favour to you;

Num 6:26  יהוה lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.” ’

Num 6:27  “Thus they shall put My Name on the children of Yisra’ĕl, and I Myself shall bless them.”

Num 6:24         יברכך  יהוה  וישׁמרך׃  

Num 6:25         יאר  יהוה  פניו  אליך  ויחנך׃  

Num 6:26         ישׂא  יהוה  פניו  אליך  וישׂם  לך  שׁלום׃
