And for which I undergo these things: but I have no feeling of shame. For I have knowledge of him in whom I have faith, and I am certain that he is able to keep that which I have given into his care till that day. 2 Timothy 1.12

Exodus 8


1
And this is what the Lord said to Moses: Go to Pharaoh and say to him, The Lord says, Let my people go so that they may give me worship.
2
And if you will not let them go, see, I will send frogs into every part of your land:
3
The Nile will be full of frogs, and they will come up into your house and into your bedrooms and on your bed, and into the houses of your servants and your people, and into your ovens and into your bread-basins.
4
The frogs will come up over you and your people and all your servants.
5
And the Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Let the rod in your hand be stretched out over the streams and the waterways and the pools, causing frogs to come up on the land of Egypt.
6
And when Aaron put out his hand over the waters of Egypt, the frogs came up and all the land of Egypt was covered with them.
7
And the wonder-workers did the same with their secret arts, making frogs come up over the land of Egypt.
8
Then Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron and said, Make prayer to the Lord that he will take away these frogs from me and my people and I will let the people go and make their offering to the Lord.
9
And Moses said, I will let you have the honour of saying when I am to make prayer for you and your servants and your people, that the frogs may be sent away from you and your houses, and be only in the Nile.
10
And he said, By tomorrow. And he said, Let it be as you say: so that you may see that there is no other like the Lord our God.
11
And the frogs will be gone from you and from your houses and from your servants and from your people and will be only in the Nile.
12
Then Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh and Moses made prayer to the Lord about the frogs which he had sent on Pharaoh.
13
And the Lord did as Moses said and there was an end of all the frogs in the houses and in the open spaces and in the fields.
14
And they put them together in masses, and a bad smell went up from the land.
15
But when Pharaoh saw that there was peace for a time, he made his heart hard and did not give ear to them, as the Lord had said.
16
And the Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Let your rod be stretched out over the dust of the earth so that it may become insects through all the land of Egypt.
17
And they did so and Aaron, stretching out the rod in his hand, gave a touch to the dust of the earth, and insects came on man and on beast all the dust of the earth was changed into insects through all the land of Egypt.
18
And the wonder-workers with their secret arts, attempting to make insects, were unable to do so: and there were insects on man and on beast.
19
Then the wonder-workers said to Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: but Pharaoh's heart was hard, and he did not give ear to them, as the Lord had said.
20
And the Lord said to Moses, Get up early in the morning and take your place before Pharaoh when he comes out to the water and say to him, This is what the Lord says: Let my people go to give me worship.
21
For if you do not let my people go, see, I will send clouds of flies on you and on your servants and on your people and into their houses and the houses of the Egyptians and the land where they are will be full of flies.
22
And at that time I will make a division between your land and the land of Goshen where my people are, and no flies will be there so that you may see that I am the Lord over all the earth.
23
And I will put a division between my people and your people tomorrow this sign will be seen.
24
And the Lord did so and great clouds of flies came into the house of Pharaoh and into his servants' houses, and all the land of Egypt was made waste because of the flies.
25
And Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron and said, Go and make your offering to your God here in the land.
26
And Moses said, It is not right to do so for we make our offerings of that to which the Egyptians give worship and if we do so before their eyes, certainly we will be stoned.
27
But we will go three days' journey into the waste land and make an offering to the Lord our God as he may give us orders.
28
Then Pharaoh said, I will let you go to make an offering to the Lord your God in the waste land but do not go very far away, and make prayer for me.
29
And Moses said, When I go out from you I will make prayer to the Lord that the cloud of flies may go away from Pharaoh and from his people and from his servants tomorrow: only let Pharaoh no longer by deceit keep back the people from making their offering to the Lord.
30
Then Moses went out from Pharaoh and made prayer to the Lord.
31
And the Lord did as Moses said, and took away the cloud of flies from Pharaoh and from his servants and from his people not one was to be seen.
32
But again Pharaoh made his heart hard and did not let the people go.

Exodus 9


1
Then the Lord said to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh and say to him, This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go so that they may give me worship.
2
For if you will not let them go, but still keep them in your power,
3
Then the hand of the Lord will put on your cattle in the field, on the horses and the asses and the camels, on the herds and the flocks, a very evil disease.
4
And the Lord will make a division between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt there will be no loss of any of the cattle of Israel.
5
And the time was fixed by the Lord, and he said, Tomorrow the Lord will do this thing in the land.
6
And on the day after, the Lord did as he had said, causing the death of all the cattle of Egypt, but there was no loss of any of the cattle of Israel.
7
And Pharaoh sent and got word that there was no loss of any of the cattle of Israel. But the heart of Pharaoh was hard and he did not let the people go.
8
And the Lord said to Moses and to Aaron, Take in your hand a little dust from the fire and let Moses send it in a shower up to heaven before the eyes of Pharaoh.
9
And it will become small dust over all the land of Egypt, and will be a skin-disease bursting out in wounds on man and beast through all the land of Egypt.
10
So they took some dust from the fire, and placing themselves before Pharaoh, Moses sent it out in a shower up to heaven and it became a skin-disease bursting out on man and on beast.
11
And the wonder-workers were not able to take their places before Moses, because of the disease for the disease was on the wonder-workers and on all the Egyptians.
12
And the Lord made Pharaoh's heart hard, and he would not give ear to them, as the Lord had said.
13
And the Lord said to Moses, Get up early in the morning and take your place before Pharaoh, and say to him, This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go so that they may give me worship.
14
For this time I will send all my punishments on yourself and on your servants and on your people so that you may see that there is no other like me in all the earth.
15
For if I had put the full weight of my hand on you and your people, you would have been cut off from the earth:
16
But, for this very reason, I have kept you from destruction, to make clear to you my power, and so that my name may be honoured through all the earth.
17
Are you still uplifted in pride against my people so that you will not let them go?
18
Truly, tomorrow about this time I will send down an ice-storm, such as never was in Egypt from its earliest days till now.
19
Then send quickly and get in your cattle and all you have from the fields for if any man or beast in the field has not been put under cover, the ice-storm will come down on them with destruction.
20
Then everyone among the servants of Pharaoh who had the fear of the Lord, made his servants and his cattle come quickly into the house:
21
And he who gave no attention to the word of the Lord, kept his servants and his cattle in the field.
22
And the Lord said to Moses, Now let your hand be stretched out to heaven so that there may be an ice-storm on all the land of Egypt, on man and on beast and on every plant of the field through all the land of Egypt.
23
And Moses put out his rod to heaven: and the Lord sent thunder, and an ice-storm, and fire running down on the earth the Lord sent an ice-storm on the land of Egypt.
24
So there was an ice-storm with fire running through it, coming down with great force, such as never was in all the land of Egypt from the time when it became a nation.
25
And through all the land of Egypt the ice-storm came down on everything which was in the fields, on man and on beast and every green plant was crushed and every tree of the field broken.
26
Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no ice-storm.
27
Then Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, I have done evil this time: the Lord is upright, and I and my people are sinners.
28
Make prayer to the Lord for there has been enough of these thunderings of God and this ice-storm and I will let you go and will keep you no longer.
29
And Moses said, When I am gone outside the town, my hands will be stretched out to the Lord the thunders and the ice-storm will come to an end, so that you may see that the earth is the Lord's.
30
But as for you and your servants, I am certain that even now the fear of the Lord God will not be in your hearts.
31
And the flax and the barley were damaged, for the barley was almost ready to be cut and the flax was in flower.
32
But the rest of the grain-plants were undamaged, for they had not come up.
33
So Moses went out of the town, and stretching out his hands made prayer to God: and the thunders and the ice-storm came to an end and the fall of rain was stopped.
34
But when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the ice-storm and the thunders were ended, he went on sinning, and made his heart hard, he and his servants.
35
And the heart of Pharaoh was hard, and he did not let the people go, as the Lord had said by the mouth of Moses.

Matthew 17

14-27
14
And when they came to the people, a man went down on his knees to him, saying,
15
Lord have mercy on my son: for he is off his head, and is in great pain and frequently he goes falling into the fire, and frequently into the water.
16
And I took him to your disciples, and they were not able to make him well.
17
And Jesus, answering, said, O false and foolish generation, how long will I be with you? how long will I put up with you? let him come here to me.
18
And Jesus gave orders to the unclean spirit, and it went out of him: and the boy was made well from that hour.
19
Then the disciples came to Jesus privately, and said, Why were we not able to send it out?
20
And he says to them, Because of your little faith: for truly I say to you, If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, Be moved from this place to that and it will be moved and nothing will be impossible to you.
21

22
And while they were going about in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of man will be given up into the hands of men
23
And they will put him to death, and the third day he will come again from the dead. And they were very sad.
24
And when they had come to Capernaum, those who took the Temple tax came to Peter and said, Does not your master make payment of the Temple tax?
25
He says, Yes. And when he came into the house, Jesus said to him, What is your opinion, Simon? from whom do the kings of the earth get payment or tax? from their sons or from other people?
26
And when he said, From other people, Jesus said to him, Then are the sons free.
27
But, so that we may not be a cause of trouble to them, go to the sea, and let down a hook, and take the first fish which comes up and in his mouth you will see a bit of money: take that, and give it to them for me and you.

Matthew 18

1-14
1
In that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2
And he took a little child, and put him in the middle of them,
3
And said, Truly, I say to you, If you do not have a change of heart and become like little children, you will not go into the kingdom of heaven.
4
Whoever, then, will make himself as low as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5
And whoever gives honour to one such little child in my name, gives honour to me:
6
But whoever is a cause of trouble to one of these little ones who have faith in me, it would be better for him to have a great stone fixed to his neck, and to come to his end in the deep sea.
7
A curse is on the earth because of trouble! for it is necessary for trouble to come but unhappy is that man through whom the trouble comes.
8
And if your hand or your foot is a cause of trouble, let it be cut off and put it away from you: it is better for you to go into life with the loss of a hand or a foot than, having two hands or two feet, to go into the eternal fire.
9
And if your eye is a cause of trouble to you, take it out, and put it away from you: it is better for you to go into life with one eye than, having two eyes, to go into the hell of fire.
10
Let it not seem to you that one of these little ones is of no value for I say to you that in heaven their angels see at all times the face of my Father in heaven.
11
[]
12
What would you say now? if a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone wandering away, will he not let the ninety-nine be, and go to the mountains in search of the wandering one?
13
And if he comes across it, truly I say to you, he has more joy over it than over the ninety-nine which have not gone out of the way.
14
Even so it is not the pleasure of your Father in heaven for one of these little ones to come to destruction.
