19 Aviyv (Niycan) - 25 Aviyv (Niycan)
PARSHAT: Shemoth 33:12 - 34:26
And Mosheh said unto EL-YAHUAH, See, you say unto me, Bring up את eth-this people: and you have not let me know את eth whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, I know you by name, and you have also found grace in my sight. 13 Now therefore, I pray you, if I have found grace in your sight, show me now את eth-your way, that I may know you, that I may find grace in your sight: and consider that this nation is your people. 14 And he said, My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest. 15 And he said unto him, If your presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. 16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and your people have found grace in your sight? is it not in that you go with us? so shall we be separated, I and your people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth. 17 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, I will do את eth-this thing also that you have spoken: for you have found grace in my sight, and I know you by name. 18 And he said, I beseech you, show me את eth-your glory. 19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of YAHUAH before you; and will be gracious to whom את eth-I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom את eth-I will show mercy. 20 And he said, You cannot see את eth-my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. 21 And YAHUAH said, Behold, there is a place by me, and you shall stand upon a rock: 22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passes by, that I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and will cover you with my hand while I pass by: 23 And I will take away את eth-my hand, and you shall see את eth-my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.
AND YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, Hew you two sapphire stones like unto the first: and I will write את eth-upon these sapphires the words that were in the first sapphires, which you broke. 2 And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto Mount Ciynai, and present yourself there to me in the top of the Mount. 3 And no man shall come up with you, 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 sapphire stones like unto the first; and Mosheh rose up early in the morning, and went up unto Mount Ciynai, as YAHUAH had commanded him, and took in his hand the two sapphire stones. 5 And YAHUAH descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of YAHUAH. 6 And YAHUAH passed by before him, and proclaimed, YAHUAH, YAHUAH EL, 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 Mosheh made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped. 9 And he said, If now I have found grace in your sight, O ADONAI, let my ADONAI, I pray you, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for your inheritance.
10 And he said, Behold, I cut a covenant: before all your 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 you are shall see את eth-the work of YAHUAH: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with you. 11 Guard את eth that which I command you this day: behold, I drive out before you את eth-the Emoriy, and the Kena`aniy, and the Chittiy, and the Perizziy, and the Chivviy, and the Yevuciy. 12 Take heed to yourself, lest you cut a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither you go, lest it be for a snare in the midst of you: 13 But ye shall destroy את eth-their altars, break את eth-their images, and cut down את eth-their Asherah poles: 14 For you shall worship no other el:[i] for YAHUAH, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous EL: 15 Lest you cut a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their elohiym, and do sacrifice unto their elohiym, and one call you, and you eat of his sacrifice; 16 And take of their daughters unto your sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their elohiym, and make your sons go a whoring את eth-after their elohiym. 17 You shall make no molten elohiym.
18 The את eth-Feast of Matstsah shall you guard. Seven days you shall eat matstsah, as I commanded you, in the time of the month Aviyv: for in the month Aviyv you came out from Mitsrayim. 19 All that opens the womb is mine; and every firstling among your cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male. 20 But the firstling of an ass you shall redeem with a lamb: and if you redeem him not, then shall you break his neck. All the firstborn of your sons you shall redeem. And none shall appear before me empty.
21 Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest: in earing time and in harvest you shall rest.
22 And you shall observe the Feast of Shavu’oth,[ii] of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the Feast of Cukkoth at the year's end.
23 Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear את eth-before ADONAI YAHUAH, the ELOHIYM of Yisra’el. 24 For I will cast out the nations before you, and enlarge את eth-your borders: neither shall any man desire את eth-your land, when you shall go up to appear את eth-before YAHUAH ELOHAYKA thrice in the year. 25 You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the Feast of the Pecach be left unto the morning. 26 The first of the firstfruits of your land you shall bring unto the house of YAHUAH ELOHAYKA. You shall not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.
HAFTORAH: Yechezq'el 38:18 - 39:16; Yesha`yahu 9:1-7
And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Yisra’el, says ADONAI YAHUAH, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Yisra’el; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heavens, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, says ADONAI YAHUAH: every man's sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am YAHUAH.
THEREFORE, son of Adam, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus says ADONAI YAHUAH; Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal: 2 And I will turn you back, and leave but the sixth part of you, and will cause you to come up from the north parts, and will bring you upon the mountains of Yisra’el: 3 And I will smite your bow out of your left hand, and will cause your arrows to fall out of your right hand. 4 You shall fall upon the mountains of Yisra’el, you, and all your bands, and the people that is with you: I will give you unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. 5 You shall fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, says ADONAI YAHUAH. 6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am YAHUAH. 7 So will I make my holy את eth-name known in the midst of my people Yisra’el; and I will not let them pollute my holy את eth-name anymore: and the heathen shall know that I am YAHUAH, the Holy One in Yisra’el.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, says ADONAI YAHUAH; this is the day whereof I have spoken. 9 And they that dwell in the cities of Yisra’el shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: 10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that את eth-spoiled them, and rob those that את eth-robbed them, says ADONAI YAHUAH.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Yisra’el, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of את eth-the passengers: and there shall they bury את eth-Gog and את eth-all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon Gog.[i] 12 And seven months shall the house of Yisra’el be burying of them, that they may cleanse את eth-the land. 13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, says ADONAI YAHUAH. 14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury את eth-with the passengers those that remain את eth-upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search. 15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any sees a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon Gog. 16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
NEVERTHELESS the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zevulun and the land of Naphtaliy, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Yarden, in Galiyl of the nations. 2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them has the light shined. 3 You have multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before you according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. 4 For you have broken את eth-the yoke of his burden, and את eth-the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midyan. 5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire. 6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The Mighty EL, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of YAHUAH TSEVA’OTH will perform this.
BESORAH: Yahuchanon 1:1-14
IN the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with את eth ELOHIYM, and the Word was ELOHIYM. 2 The same was in the beginning with את eth ELOHIYM. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from YAHUAH, whose name was Yahuchanon. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of YAHUAH, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of YAHUAH. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and tabernacled among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the yachiyd of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
