Mark Chapter Sixteen

1: And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
 
2: And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
 
3: And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
 
4: And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
 
5: And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
 
6: And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
 
7: But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
 
8: And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
 
9: Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
 
10: And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
 
11: And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
 
12: After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.
 
13: And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
 
14: Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
 
15: And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
 
16: He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
 
17: And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
 
18: They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
 
19: So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
 
20: And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Exodus Chapter Thirty Six

1: Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the LORD had commanded.
 
2: And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:
 
3: And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning.
 
4: And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;
 
5: And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the LORD commanded to make.
 
6: And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing.
 
7: For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.
 
8: And every wise hearted man among them that wrought the work of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work made he them.
 
9: The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were all of one size.
 
10: And he coupled the five curtains one unto another: and the other five curtains he coupled one unto another.
 
11: And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost side of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.
 
12: Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the loops held one curtain to another.
 
13: And he made fifty taches of gold, and coupled the curtains one unto another with the taches: so it became one tabernacle.
 
14: And he made curtains of goats’ hair for the tent over the tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.
 
15: The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits was the breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains were of one size.
 
16: And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves.
 
17: And he made fifty loops upon the uttermost edge of the curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.

19: And he made a covering for the tent of rams’ skins dyed red, and a covering of badgers’ skins above that.
 
20: And he made boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood, standing up.
 
21: The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a board one cubit and a half.
 
22: One board had two tenons, equally distant one from another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.
 
23: And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward:
 
24: And forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.
 
25: And for the other side of the tabernacle, which is toward the north corner, he made twenty boards,
 
26: And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.
 
27: And for the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six boards.
 
28: And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides.
 
29: And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the head thereof, to one ring: thus he did to both of them in both the corners.
 
30: And there were eight boards; and their sockets were sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.
 
31: And he made bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,
 
32: And five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the sides westward.
 
33: And he made the middle bar to shoot through the boards from the one end to the other.
 
34: And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings of gold to be places for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.
 
35: And he made a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: with cherubims made he it of cunning work.
 
36: And he made thereunto four pillars of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of silver.
 
37: And he made an hanging for the tabernacle door of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, of needlework;
 
38: And the five pillars of it with their hooks: and he overlaid their chapiters and their fillets with gold: but their five sockets were of brass.

4: And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
 
5: A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.
 
6: For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellers there is safety.

8: He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous person.
 
9: The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.
 
10: If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
 
11: If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
 
12: If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?
 
13: My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:
