Luka Perek 11

        1And it came to pass while He was praying in a certain place, when He finished, one of His Talmidim said to Him, “Adoneinu, teach us to pray, just as Yokhanan also taught his talmidim.” 2Yeshua said to them, “When you pray, say ‘Avinu sh'bashamayim, may Your Name be kadosh. May Your kingdom come, Your will be done, as in Heaven, so on earth. 3Give us the bread we need today. 4And forgive us our sins, as we have also forgiven all who have offended us. And do not let us enter into testing, but deliver us from the Evil One.” 5And He said to them, “Who is there among you who has a friend, and if he should go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘My friend, lend me three loaves, 6for a friend has come to me from a journey and I have nothing to set before him,’ 7would his friend from inside answer, saying to him, ‘Do not trouble me; the door is already locked and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and give you bread?’ 8I say to you that if he will not give him because of friendship, then because of his persistence, he will rise and give him as much as he wants. 9I say to you also, ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you. 10For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and he who knocks, it is opened to him. 11For who is among you, a father, if his son should ask him bread, would he hand him a stone? And if he should ask him a fish, would he hand him a snake instead of a fish? 12And if he should ask him for an egg, would he hand him a scorpion? 13So if you, who err, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father give The Ruakh HaKodesh from Heaven to those who ask Him?”
        14And while He was casting out a demon from a mute man, it came to pass when the demon went out, the mute man spoke; and the people were amazed. 15But some of the men among them said, “This man casts out devils by Ba’al Zevuv, the prince of devils.” 16And others, testing Him, asked Him for a sign from Heaven. 17But Yeshua knew their thoughts, and said to them, “Every kingdom which is divided against itself shall be destroyed; and a house which is divided against itself shall fall. 18And if HaSatan is divided against himself, how can his kingdom survive? And yet you say I am casting out devils through Ba’al Zevuv. 19If I cast out devils through Ba’al Zevuv, by what do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. 20But if I cast out devils by the finger of Elohim, then HaMalkhut HaElohim is come near you. 21When a strong man is armed and keeps watch over his courtyard, his property is safe; 22but if there should come one who is stronger than he, he will conquer him and take away his armor in which he trusted and divide his spoil. 23He who is not with me is against me; and he who does not gather with me will scatter. 24When an unclean spirit is gone out of a man, it goes away and travels in places where there is no water, to seek rest; and when it finds it not, it says, ‘I will return to my own house from whence I came.’ 25And if it should come and find it swept and well furnished, 26then it goes away and brings seven other spirits worse than itself; and they enter and dwell there; and the end of that man will become worse than the beginning.”
        27While He was saying these things, a woman out of the multitude lifted up her voice and said to Him, “Happy is the womb which bore you, and the breasts which nursed you.” 28He said to her, “Happy are they who hear the word of Elohim, and keep it.” 29And when the people were gathering, He began to say, “This evil generation wants a sign; and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Yonah. 30For as Yonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so also will The Son of Man be to this generation. 31The queen of the south will rise up in judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the far ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Shlomo; and behold, one greater than Shlomo is here. 32The men of Nineveh will rise up in judgment against this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Yonah; and behold, one greater than Yonah is here. 33No man lights a lamp and puts it in a hidden place or under a basket, but on a lamp holder, so that those who enter may see its light. 34The lamp of your body is your eye; when therefore your eye is bright, your whole body will also be lighted; but if it is diseased, your whole body will also be dark. 35Take heed, therefore, lest the light which is in you be darkness. 36If your whole body is lighted and there is no part in it dark, the whole of it will give light, just as a lamp gives you light with its shining.”
        37While He spoke, a Parush asked Him to dine with him; and He entered and reclined. 38When the Parush saw Him, he was amazed because he did not first wash before dinner. 39And Yeshua said to him, “Now you P’rushim clean the outside of the cup and the dish; but within you are full of extortion and iniquity. 40O you shortsighted, did not He who made the outside also make the inside? 41But give alms of what you have; and, behold, everything will be clean to you. 42But woe to you P’rushim! Who take tithes of mint and dill and every kind of vegetable, but overlook justice and the love of Elohim. These were necessary for you to have done, without the others being left undone. 43Woe to you P’rushim! For you love chief seats in the Beit K’nessets and salutations in the streets. 44Woe to you, scribes and P’rushim, hypocrites! For you are like graves that cannot be recognized, and men walk over them and know it not.” 45One of the scribes answered, saying to Him, “Teacher, when you say these things, you reproach us also.” 46But He said, “Woe also to you, scribes! For you lay heavy burdens on men, and you yourselves do not touch these burdens even with one of your fingers. 47Woe to you! For you build the tombs of prophets whom your fathers killed. 48Therefore you are witnesses, and you approve the works of your fathers; for they killed them, and yet you build their tombs. 49For this reason the wisdom of Elohim also said, ‘Behold, I will send them prophets and Shlikhim, some of whom they will persecute and kill;’ 50that the blood of all the prophets which was shed since the creation of the world may be avenged on this nation. 51From the blood of Avel to the blood of Zekhar-Yah, who was killed between the Temple and the altar; yes, I say to you, it will be avenged on this nation. 52Woe to you, scribes! For you have taken away the keys of knowledge; you did not enter, and those who were entering you hindered.” 53When He had said these things to them, the scribes and the P’rushim were displeased and they were enraged and criticized His words. 54And they plotted against Him in many ways, seeking to catch something out of His mouth so that they might be able to accuse Him.

Luka Perek 12

        1When a large number of people had gathered together so that they trod on one another, Yeshua began to say to His Talmidim first of all, “Beware of the leaven of the P’rushim, which is hypocrisy. 2For there is nothing that is covered that will not be uncovered; and hidden that will not be known. 3For whatever you have said in darkness will be heard in the light; and what you have whispered in the ears in the inner chambers will be preached on the housetops. 4I say to you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more they can do. 5But I will show you of whom to be afraid; of Him who after He has killed has the power to throw into Gehinom; yes, I say to you, Fear Him. 6Are not five sparrows sold for two denarii? And yet not one of them is lost before Elohim. 7But so far as you are concerned, even the hairs of your head are all numbered; therefore fear not, because you are much more important than many sparrows. 8I say to you, whoever will acknowledge me before men, The Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the Messengers of Elohim. 9But he who denies me before men, I will deny before the Messengers of Elohim. 10And whoever says a word against The Son of Man will be forgiven; but he who blasphemes against The Ruakh HaKodesh will not be forgiven. 11When they bring you to the Beit K’nessets, before the leaders and authorities, do not worry how you will answer or what you will say; 12for The Ruakh HaKodesh will teach you at that very hour what you ought to say.”
        13And one of the men from the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, ask my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” 14Yeshua said to him, “Man, who appointed me a judge or a property divider over you?” 15And He said to His Talmidim, “Beware of all covetousness, because life does not depend on abundance of wealth.” 16Then He told them a parable. “The land of a rich man brought him a great many crops. 17And he reasoned within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, for I have no place to gather my crops?’ 18So he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and rebuild them and enlarge them, and gather there all my wheat and my good things. 19And I will say to myself, ‘Soul, you have many good things stored up for many years; rest, eat, drink, and be happy.’’ 20But Elohim said to him, ‘O you shortsighted man, this very night your life will be demanded of you; and these things which you have prepared, to whom will they be left?’ 21Such is he who lays up treasures for himself and is not rich in the things of Elohim.”
        22And He said to His Talmidim, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry for your life, what you will eat; nor for your body, what you will wear. 23For life is much more important than food, and the body than clothing. 24Observe the ravens; for they do not sow or reap, and they have no storerooms and barns; and yet Elohim feeds them; how much more important are you than the birds? 25Who among you by worrying can add to his stature one cubit? 26So if you are not able to do the smaller thing, why do you worry about the rest? 27Observe the flowers, how they grow; for they do not toil nor do they spin; but I say to you that not even Shlomo in all his glory was arrayed like one of these. 28And if Elohim clothes in such fashion the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow falls into the fireplace, how much more you, O you of little faith? 29So do not be anxious about what you will eat or what you will drink, and let not your mind be disturbed by these things. 30For worldly people seek after all these things; and your Father knows that these things are also necessary for you. 31But seek HaMalkhut HaElohim, and all of these things shall be added to you. 32Do not be afraid, O little flock; for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom. 33Sell your possessions and give them as alms; make for yourselves purses which do not wear out, and a treasure in Heaven that does not run short, where the thief does not come near, and moth does not destroy. 34For where your treasure is, there also will be your heart. 35Let your girdle be fastened on your loins, and your lamps lighted. 36And be like men who expect their master when he will return from the wedding house; so that when he comes and knocks, they will immediately open the door for him. 37Blessed are those servants, whom their master, when he comes, finds awake; truly I say to you that he will gird himself and make them sit down, and come in and serve them. 38If he should come in the second or the third watch and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39But know this, that if the master of the house knew at what watch the thief would come, he would have kept awake and not allowed his house to be plundered. 40Therefore, you also be ready; for The Son of Man will come in that very hour which you do not expect.”
        41Shimon Kefa said to Him, “Adoneinu, do you speak this parable to us or also to all men?” 42Yeshua said to him, “Who is the faithful and wise steward, whom his master will appoint over his household to give supplies in due time? 43Blessed is that servant, whom his master when he comes will find so doing. 44Truly I say to you that he will appoint him over all his wealth. 45But if that servant should say in his heart, ‘My master has delayed his coming,’ and begins to beat the menservants and maidservants of his master, and then begins to eat and drink and get drunk, 46the master of that servant will come in a day and at an hour that he does not expect or know; and he will severely punish him, and place him with those who are not trustworthy. 47And the servant who knows the will of his master, and does not make ready according to his will, will receive a severe beating. 48But he who does not know, and does what is worthy of punishment will receive less beating. For to whomever more is given, of him more will be required; and to whom much is entrusted, more will be required of his hand. 49I came to set the earth on fire; and I wish to do it, if it has not already been kindled. 50I have an immersion to be immersed with; and I am greatly afflicted until it is fulfilled. 51Do you think that I have come to bring shalom on earth? I say to you, no, but divisions; 52for from henceforth there will be five in a house who will be divided three against two, and two against three. 53For a father will be divided against his son, and a son against his father; a mother against her daughter, and a daughter against her mother; a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”
        54And He said to the people, “When you see a cloud rise from the west, you immediately say, ‘It will rain,’ and so it is. 55And when the wind blows from the south, you say, ‘It will be hot,’ and it is so. 56O you hypocrites, you know how to discern the face of the earth and of the sky; how then is it that you do not discern this time? 57Why do you not of yourselves judge what is right? 58For when you go with your accuser to the ruler, while you are on the way give something and settle with him; otherwise he might take you to the judge, and the judge will deliver you to the prison warden, and the prison warden will throw you into prison. 59Truly I say to you, you will not come out from thence until you pay the last coin.”

Kolossim (Colossians) 2:11-23
(Hebrew Text)

Kolossim Perek 2

11in whom also you are circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in putting off the sinful body by the circumcision of Mashiakh; 12and you were buried with Him in immersion, and by Him you were raised with Him, for you trusted in the power of Elohim who raised Him from the dead.
        13And you, who once were dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has granted to live with Him, and He has forgiven you all your sins; 14and by His mitzvot He cancelled the written record of our sins, which stood against us; and He took it out of the way, nailing it to His stake; 15And by putting off His mortal body, He exposed the powers of evil, and through His nature put them openly to shame.
        16Let no one therefore create a disturbance among you about eating and drinking, or about the distinctions of feast days, the beginning of the months, and of sabbaths. 17These are shadows of things to come; but the main objective is Mashiakh. 18Let no man, by pretense of sincerity, doom you so that you worship Messengers; for he is bold about the things he has not seen, and foolishly he is proud of his intellectual powers; 19that very person does not uphold the Head by whom the whole body is constructed and stands, with the joints and members, and grows through the discipline of Elohim. 20Therefore, if you have died with Mashiakh and are apart from the principles of the world, why then should you be doomed as though living in the world? 21Do not touch; do not taste; do not follow; 22for these things are customs which are changeable and they are the mitzvot and doctrines of men. 23And it appears there is some word of wisdom in these things when presented by the humble person in reverence for Elohim, provided they disregard the things of the flesh, not those things which are honorable, but only those things which satisfy the pleasure of the flesh.
