Recounting Israel’s Journey 33:1 These are the stages of the people of Israel, when they went out of the land of Egypt by their companies under the leadership of Moses and Aaron.
2 Moses wrote down their starting places, stage by stage, by command of the Lord, and these are their stages according to their starting places.
3 They set out from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month. On the day after the Passover, the people of Israel went out triumphantly in the sight of all the Egyptians,
4 while the Egyptians were burying all their firstborn, whom the Lord had struck down among them. On their gods also the Lord executed judgments.
5 So the people of Israel set out from Rameses and camped at Succoth.
6 And they set out from Succoth and camped at Etham, which is on the edge of the wilderness.
7 And they set out from Etham and turned back to Pi-hahiroth, which is east of Baal-zephon, and they camped before Migdol.
8 And they set out from before Hahiroth and passed through the midst of the sea into the wilderness, and they went a three days’ journey in the wilderness of Etham and camped at Marah.
9 And they set out from Marah and came to Elim; at Elim there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees, and they camped there.
10 And they set out from Elim and camped by the Red Sea.
11 And they set out from the Red Sea and camped in the wilderness of Sin.
12 And they set out from the wilderness of Sin and camped at Dophkah.
13 And they set out from Dophkah and camped at Alush.
14 And they set out from Alush and camped at Rephidim, where there was no water for the people to drink.
15 And they set out from Rephidim and camped in the wilderness of Sinai.
16 And they set out from the wilderness of Sinai and camped at Kibroth-hattaavah.
17 And they set out from Kibroth-hattaavah and camped at Hazeroth.
18 And they set out from Hazeroth and camped at Rithmah.
19 And they set out from Rithmah and camped at Rimmon-perez.
20 And they set out from Rimmon-perez and camped at Libnah.
21 And they set out from Libnah and camped at Rissah.
22 And they set out from Rissah and camped at Kehelathah.
23 And they set out from Kehelathah and camped at Mount Shepher.
24 And they set out from Mount Shepher and camped at Haradah.
25 And they set out from Haradah and camped at Makheloth.
26 And they set out from Makheloth and camped at Tahath.
27 And they set out from Tahath and camped at Terah.
28 And they set out from Terah and camped at Mithkah.
29 And they set out from Mithkah and camped at Hashmonah.
30 And they set out from Hashmonah and camped at Moseroth.
31 And they set out from Moseroth and camped at Bene-jaakan.
32 And they set out from Bene-jaakan and camped at Hor-haggidgad.
33 And they set out from Hor-haggidgad and camped at Jotbathah.
34 And they set out from Jotbathah and camped at Abronah.
35 And they set out from Abronah and camped at Ezion-geber.
36 And they set out from Ezion-geber and camped in the wilderness of Zin (that is, Kadesh).
37 And they set out from Kadesh and camped at Mount Hor, on the edge of the land of Edom.
38 And Aaron the priest went up Mount Hor at the command of the Lord and died there, in the fortieth year after the people of Israel had come out of the land of Egypt, on the first day of the fifth month.
39 And Aaron was 123 years old when he died on Mount Hor.
40 And the Canaanite, the king of Arad, who lived in the Negeb in the land of Canaan, heard of the coming of the people of Israel.
41 And they set out from Mount Hor and camped at Zalmonah.
42 And they set out from Zalmonah and camped at Punon.
43 And they set out from Punon and camped at Oboth.
44 And they set out from Oboth and camped at Iye-abarim, in the territory of Moab.
45 And they set out from Iyim and camped at Dibon-gad.
46 And they set out from Dibon-gad and camped at Almon-diblathaim.
47 And they set out from Almon-diblathaim and camped in the mountains of Abarim, before Nebo.
48 And they set out from the mountains of Abarim and camped in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho;
49 they camped by the Jordan from Beth-jeshimoth as far as Abel-shittim in the plains of Moab.
Drive Out the Inhabitants50 And the Lord spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying,
51 “Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, When you pass over the Jordan into the land of Canaan,
52 then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you and destroy all their figured stones and destroy all their metal images and demolish all their high places.
53 And you shall take possession of the land and settle in it, for I have given the land to you to possess it.
54 You shall inherit the land by lot according to your clans. To a large tribe you shall give a large inheritance, and to a small tribe you shall give a small inheritance. Wherever the lot falls for anyone, that shall be his. According to the tribes of your fathers you shall inherit.
55 But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then those of them whom you let remain shall be as barbs in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall trouble you in the land where you dwell.
56 And I will do to you as I thought to do to them.”

Boundaries of the Land 34:1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
2 “Command the people of Israel, and say to them, When you enter the land of Canaan (this is the land that shall fall to you for an inheritance, the land of Canaan as defined by its borders),
3 your south side shall be from the wilderness of Zin alongside Edom, and your southern border shall run from the end of the Salt Sea on the east.
4 And your border shall turn south of the ascent of Akrabbim, and cross to Zin, and its limit shall be south of Kadesh-barnea. Then it shall go on to Hazar-addar, and pass along to Azmon.
5 And the border shall turn from Azmon to the Brook of Egypt, and its limit shall be at the sea.
6 “For the western border, you shall have the Great Sea and its coast. This shall be your western border.
7 “This shall be your northern border: from the Great Sea you shall draw a line to Mount Hor.
8 From Mount Hor you shall draw a line to Lebo-hamath, and the limit of the border shall be at Zedad.
9 Then the border shall extend to Ziphron, and its limit shall be at Hazar-enan. This shall be your northern border.
10 “You shall draw a line for your eastern border from Hazar-enan to Shepham.
11 And the border shall go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain. And the border shall go down and reach to the shoulder of the Sea of Chinnereth on the east.
12 And the border shall go down to the Jordan, and its limit shall be at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land as defined by its borders all around.”
13 Moses commanded the people of Israel, saying, “This is the land that you shall inherit by lot, which the Lord has commanded to give to the nine tribes and to the half-tribe.
14 For the tribe of the people of Reuben by fathers’ houses and the tribe of the people of Gad by their fathers’ houses have received their inheritance, and also the half-tribe of Manasseh.
15 The two tribes and the half-tribe have received their inheritance beyond the Jordan east of Jericho, toward the sunrise.”
List of Tribal Chiefs16 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
17 “These are the names of the men who shall divide the land to you for inheritance: Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Nun.
18 You shall take one chief from every tribe to divide the land for inheritance.
19 These are the names of the men: Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.
20 Of the tribe of the people of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud.
21 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon.
22 Of the tribe of the people of Dan a chief, Bukki the son of Jogli.
23 Of the people of Joseph: of the tribe of the people of Manasseh a chief, Hanniel the son of Ephod.
24 And of the tribe of the people of Ephraim a chief, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan.
25 Of the tribe of the people of Zebulun a chief, Elizaphan the son of Parnach.
26 Of the tribe of the people of Issachar a chief, Paltiel the son of Azzan.
27 And of the tribe of the people of Asher a chief, Ahihud the son of Shelomi.
28 Of the tribe of the people of Naphtali a chief, Pedahel the son of Ammihud.”
29 These are the men whom the Lord commanded to divide the inheritance for the people of Israel in the land of Canaan.
« Proverbs 15 | Proverbs 16 | Proverbs 17 »
16:1 The plans of the heart belong to man,but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,but the Lord weighs the spirit.
3 Commit your work to the Lord,and your plans will be established.
4 The Lord has made everything for its purpose,even the wicked for the day of trouble.
5 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;be assured, he will not go unpunished.
6 By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.
7 When a man’s ways please the Lord,he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
8 Better is a little with righteousnessthan great revenues with injustice.
9 The heart of man plans his way,but the Lord establishes his steps.
10 An oracle is on the lips of a king;his mouth does not sin in judgment.
11 A just balance and scales are the Lord’s;all the weights in the bag are his work.
12 It is an abomination to kings to do evil,for the throne is established by righteousness.
13 Righteous lips are the delight of a king,and he loves him who speaks what is right.
14 A king’s wrath is a messenger of death,and a wise man will appease it.
15 In the light of a king’s face there is life,and his favor is like the clouds that bring the spring rain.
16 How much better to get wisdom than gold!To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.
17 The highway of the upright turns aside from evil;whoever guards his way preserves his life.
18 Pride goes before destruction,and a haughty spirit before a fall.
19 It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poorthan to divide the spoil with the proud.
20 Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good,and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
21 The wise of heart is called discerning,and sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness.
22 Good sense is a fountain of life to him who has it,but the instruction of fools is folly.
23 The heart of the wise makes his speech judiciousand adds persuasiveness to his lips.
24 Gracious words are like a honeycomb,sweetness to the soul and health to the body.
25 There is a way that seems right to a man,but its end is the way to death.
26 A worker’s appetite works for him;his mouth urges him on.
27 A worthless man plots evil,and his speech is like a scorching fire.
28 A dishonest man spreads strife,and a whisperer separates close friends.
29 A man of violence entices his neighborand leads him in a way that is not good.
30 Whoever winks his eyes plans dishonest things;he who purses his lips brings evil to pass.
31 Gray hair is a crown of glory;it is gained in a righteous life.
32 Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
33 The lot is cast into the lap,but its every decision is from the Lord.
« Psalm 30 | Psalm 31 | Psalm 32 »
Into Your Hand I Commit My SpiritTo the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.31:1 In you, O Lord, do I take refuge;let me never be put to shame;in your righteousness deliver me!
2 Incline your ear to me;rescue me speedily!Be a rock of refuge for me,a strong fortress to save me!
3 For you are my rock and my fortress;and for your name’s sake you lead me and guide me;
4 you take me out of the net they have hidden for me,for you are my refuge.
5 Into your hand I commit my spirit;you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God.
6 I hate those who pay regard to worthless idols,but I trust in the Lord.
7 I will rejoice and be glad in your steadfast love,because you have seen my affliction;you have known the distress of my soul,
8 and you have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy;you have set my feet in a broad place.
9 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress;my eye is wasted from grief;my soul and my body also.
10 For my life is spent with sorrow,and my years with sighing;my strength fails because of my iniquity,and my bones waste away.
11 Because of all my adversaries I have become a reproach,especially to my neighbors,and an object of dread to my acquaintances;those who see me in the street flee from me.
12 I have been forgotten like one who is dead;I have become like a broken vessel.
13 For I hear the whispering of many—terror on every side!—as they scheme together against me,as they plot to take my life.
14 But I trust in you, O Lord;I say, “You are my God.”
15 My times are in your hand;rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors!
16 Make your face shine on your servant;save me in your steadfast love!
17 O Lord, let me not be put to shame,for I call upon you;let the wicked be put to shame;let them go silently to Sheol.
18 Let the lying lips be mute,which speak insolently against the righteousin pride and contempt.
19 Oh, how abundant is your goodness,which you have stored up for those who fear youand worked for those who take refuge in you,in the sight of the children of mankind!
20 In the cover of your presence you hide themfrom the plots of men;you store them in your shelterfrom the strife of tongues.
21 Blessed be the Lord,for he has wondrously shown his steadfast love to mewhen I was in a besieged city.
22 I had said in my alarm,“I am cut off from your sight.”But you heard the voice of my pleas for mercywhen I cried to you for help.
23 Love the Lord, all you his saints!The Lord preserves the faithfulbut abundantly repays the one who acts in pride.
24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage,all you who wait for the Lord!
