Sleepy Scriptures Episode Twenty Six

Mark Chapter Fourteen

1: After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.
 
2: But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.
 
3: And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.
 
4: And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?
 
5: For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.
 
6: And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.
 
7: For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.
 
8: She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.
 
9: Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.
 
10: And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them.
 
11: And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.
 
12: And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?
 
13: And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.
 
14: And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
 
15: And he will shew you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.
 
16: And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
 
17: And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.
 
18: And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with me shall betray me.
 
19: And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I?
 
20: And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish.
 
21: The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.
 
22: And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.
 
23: And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.
 
24: And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.
 
25: Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
 
26: And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
 
27: And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.
 
28: But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.
 
29: But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.
 
30: And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
 
31: But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.
 
32: And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.
 
33: And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;
 
34: And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.
 
35: And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.
 
36: And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
 
37: And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?
 
38: Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
 
39: And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.
 
40: And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.
 
41: And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
 
42: Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
 
43: And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
 
44: And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
 
45: And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.
 
46: And they laid their hands on him, and took him.
 
47: And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
 
48: And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?
 
49: I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.
 
50: And they all forsook him, and fled.
 
51: And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
 
52: And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
 
53: And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.
 
54: And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.
 
55: And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.
 
56: For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.
 
57: And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,
 
58: We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.
 
59: But neither so did their witness agree together.
 
60: And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
 
61: But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
 
62: And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
 
63: Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?
 
64: Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.
 
65: And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.
 
66: And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:
 
67: And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
 
68: But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.
 
69: And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.
 
70: And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.
 
71: But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.
 
72: And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

Mark Chapter Fifteen

1: And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.
 
2: And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto him, Thou sayest it.
 
3: And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.
 
4: And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee.
 
5: But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.
 
6: Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.
 
7: And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.
 
8: And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them.
 
9: But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
 
10: For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.
 
11: But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.
 
12: And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?
 
13: And they cried out again, Crucify him.
 
14: Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.
 
15: And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
 
16: And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band.
 
17: And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,
 
18: And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
 
19: And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.
 
20: And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.
 
21: And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
 
22: And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.
 
23: And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
 
24: And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
 
25: And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
 
26: And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
 
27: And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.
 
28: And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
 
29: And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
 
30: Save thyself, and come down from the cross.
 
31: Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.
 
32: Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
 
33: And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
 
34: And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
 
35: And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.
 
36: And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down.
 
37: And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
 
38: And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
 
39: And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
 
40: There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
 
41: (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.
 
42: And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,
 
43: Joseph of Arimathaea, and honourable counseller, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.
 
44: And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.
 
45: And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.
 
46: And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.
 
47: And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.

Exodus Chapter Thirty Four

1: And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.
 
2: And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount.
 
3: And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount.
 
4: And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone.
 
5: And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.
 
6: And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
 
7: Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
 
8: And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.
 
9: And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance.
 
10: And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.
 
11: Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
 
12: Take 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:
 
13: But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves:
 
14: For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:
 
15: Lest 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;
 
16: And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.
 
17: Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.
 
18: The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.
 
19: All that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling among thy cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male.
 
20: But 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.
 
21: Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.
 
22: And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end.
 
23: Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord GOD, the God of Israel.
 
24: For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders: neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to appear before the LORD thy God thrice in the year.
 
25: Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the morning.
 
26: The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk.
 
27: And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.
 
28: And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
 
29: And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.
 
30: And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.
 
31: And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.
 
32: And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.
 
33: And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on his face.
 
34: But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded.
 
35: And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.

Exodus Chapter Thirty Five

1: And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them, These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them.
 
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.
 
4: And Moses spake unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD commanded, saying,
 
5: Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD; gold, and silver, and brass,
 
6: And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair,
 
7: And rams’ skins dyed red, and badgers’ skins, and shittim wood,
 
8: And oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the sweet incense,
 
9: And onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for the breastplate.
 
10: And every wise hearted among you shall come, and make all that the LORD hath commanded;
 
11: The tabernacle, his tent, and his covering, his taches, and his boards, his bars, his pillars, and his sockets,
 
12: The ark, and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat, and the vail of the covering,
 
13: The table, and his staves, and all his vessels, and the shewbread,
 
14: The candlestick also for the light, and his furniture, and his lamps, with the oil for the light,
 
15: And the incense altar, and his staves, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the door at the entering in of the tabernacle,
 
16: The altar of burnt offering, with his brasen grate, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,
 
17: The hangings of the court, his pillars, and their sockets, and the hanging for the door of the court,
 
18: The pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords,
 
19: The cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office.
 
20: And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.
 
21: And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the LORD’s offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy garments.
 
22: And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered offered an offering of gold unto the LORD.
 
23: And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and red skins of rams, and badgers’ skins, brought them.
 
24: Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought the LORD’s offering: and every man, with whom was found shittim wood for any work of the service, brought it.
 
25: And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.

29: The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the LORD, every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all manner of work, which the LORD had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.
 
30: And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the LORD hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;
 
31: And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;
 
32: And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,
 
33: And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work.
 
34: And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.
 
35: Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.

Proverbs Chapter Twenty Three

1: When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:
 
2: And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.
 
3: Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
 
4: Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
 
5: Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
 
6: Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:
 
7: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
 
8: The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.
 
9: Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
 
10: Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless:
 
11: For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee.
 
12: Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.
 
13: Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
 
14: Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
 
15: My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine.
 
16: Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.
 
17: Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long.
 
18: For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.
 
19: Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.
 
20: Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:
 
21: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
 
22: Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.
 
23: Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
 
24: The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.
 
25: Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.
 
26: My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.
 
27: For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.
 
28: She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.
 
29: Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?
 
30: They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.
 
31: Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.
 
32: At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
 
33: ine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
 
34: Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
 
35: They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.
