Genesis Chapter 12 בְּרֵאשִׁית

Genesis Chapter 12 בְּרֵאשִׁית

א  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-אַבְרָם, לֶךְ-לְךָ מֵאַרְצְךָ וּמִמּוֹלַדְתְּךָ וּמִבֵּית אָבִיךָ, אֶל-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר אַרְאֶךָּ. 1 Now the LORD said unto Abram: ‘Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto the land that I will show thee.
ב  וְאֶעֶשְׂךָ, לְגוֹי גָּדוֹל, וַאֲבָרֶכְךָ, וַאֲגַדְּלָה שְׁמֶךָ; וֶהְיֵה, בְּרָכָה. 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and be thou a blessing.
ג  וַאֲבָרְכָה, מְבָרְכֶיךָ, וּמְקַלֶּלְךָ, אָאֹר; וְנִבְרְכוּ בְךָ, כֹּל מִשְׁפְּחֹת הָאֲדָמָה. 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and him that curseth thee will I curse; and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.’
ד  וַיֵּלֶךְ אַבְרָם, כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר אֵלָיו יְהוָה, וַיֵּלֶךְ אִתּוֹ, לוֹט; וְאַבְרָם, בֶּן-חָמֵשׁ שָׁנִים וְשִׁבְעִים שָׁנָה, בְּצֵאתוֹ, מֵחָרָן. 4 So Abram went, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him; and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
ה  וַיִּקַּח אַבְרָם אֶת-שָׂרַי אִשְׁתּוֹ וְאֶת-לוֹט בֶּן-אָחִיו, וְאֶת-כָּל-רְכוּשָׁם אֲשֶׁר רָכָשׁוּ, וְאֶת-הַנֶּפֶשׁ, אֲשֶׁר-עָשׂוּ בְחָרָן; וַיֵּצְאוּ, לָלֶכֶת אַרְצָה כְּנַעַן, וַיָּבֹאוּ, אַרְצָה כְּנָעַן. 5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

Psalms Chapter 83 תְּהִלִּים

Psalms Chapter 83 תְּהִלִּים

א  שִׁיר מִזְמוֹר לְאָסָף. 1 A Song, a Psalm of Asaph.
ב  אֱלֹהִים אַל-דֳּמִי-לָךְ;    אַל-תֶּחֱרַשׁ וְאַל-תִּשְׁקֹט אֵל. 2 O God, keep not Thou silence; hold not Thy peace, and be not still, O God.
ג  כִּי-הִנֵּה אוֹיְבֶיךָ, יֶהֱמָיוּן;    וּמְשַׂנְאֶיךָ, נָשְׂאוּ רֹאשׁ. 3 For, lo, Thine enemies are in an uproar; and they that hate Thee have lifted up the head.
ד  עַל-עַמְּךָ, יַעֲרִימוּ סוֹד;    וְיִתְיָעֲצוּ, עַל-צְפוּנֶיךָ. 4 They hold crafty converse against Thy people, and take counsel against Thy treasured ones.
ה  אָמְרוּ–לְכוּ, וְנַכְחִידֵם מִגּוֹי;    וְלֹא-יִזָּכֵר שֵׁם-יִשְׂרָאֵל עוֹד. 5 They have said: ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.’
ו  כִּי נוֹעֲצוּ לֵב יַחְדָּו;    עָלֶיךָ, בְּרִית יִכְרֹתוּ. 6 For they have consulted together with one consent; against Thee do they make a covenant;
ז  אָהֳלֵי אֱדוֹם, וְיִשְׁמְעֵאלִים;    מוֹאָב וְהַגְרִים. 7 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites;
ח  גְּבָל וְעַמּוֹן, וַעֲמָלֵק;    פְּלֶשֶׁת, עִם-יֹשְׁבֵי צוֹר. 8 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
ט  גַּם-אַשּׁוּר, נִלְוָה עִמָּם;    הָיוּ זְרוֹעַ לִבְנֵי-לוֹט סֶלָה. 9 Assyria also is joined with them; they have been an arm to the children of Lot. Selah
י  עֲשֵׂה-לָהֶם כְּמִדְיָן;    כְּסִיסְרָא כְיָבִין, בְּנַחַל קִישׁוֹן. 10 Do Thou unto them as unto Midian; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook Kishon;
יא  נִשְׁמְדוּ בְעֵין-דֹּאר;    הָיוּ דֹּמֶן, לָאֲדָמָה. 11 Who were destroyed at En-dor; they became as dung for the earth.
יב  שִׁיתֵמוֹ נְדִיבֵימוֹ, כְּעֹרֵב וְכִזְאֵב;    וּכְזֶבַח וּכְצַלְמֻנָּע, כָּל-נְסִיכֵימוֹ. 12 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, and like Zebah and Zalmunna all their princes;
יג  אֲשֶׁר אָמְרוּ, נִירְשָׁה לָּנוּ–    אֵת, נְאוֹת אֱלֹהִים. 13 Who said: ‘Let us take to ourselves in possession the habitations of God.’
יד  אֱלֹהַי, שִׁיתֵמוֹ כַגַּלְגַּל;    כְּקַשׁ, לִפְנֵי-רוּחַ. 14 O my God, make them like the whirling dust; as stubble before the wind.
טו  כְּאֵשׁ תִּבְעַר-יָעַר;    וּכְלֶהָבָה, תְּלַהֵט הָרִים. 15 As the fire that burneth the forest, and as the flame that setteth the mountains ablaze;
טז  כֵּן, תִּרְדְּפֵם בְּסַעֲרֶךָ;    וּבְסוּפָתְךָ תְבַהֲלֵם. 16 So pursue them with Thy tempest, and affright them with Thy storm.
יז  מַלֵּא פְנֵיהֶם קָלוֹן;    וִיבַקְשׁוּ שִׁמְךָ יְהוָה. 17 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek Thy name, O LORD.
יח  יֵבֹשׁוּ וְיִבָּהֲלוּ עֲדֵי-עַד;    וְיַחְפְּרוּ וְיֹאבֵדוּ. 18 Let them be ashamed and affrighted for ever; yea, let them be abashed and perish;
יט  וְיֵדְעוּ–    כִּי-אַתָּה שִׁמְךָ יְהוָה לְבַדֶּךָ:
עֶלְיוֹן,    עַל-כָּל-הָאָרֶץ.
19 That they may know that it is Thou alone whose name is the LORD, {N}
the Most High over all the earth.

Psalms Chapter 122 תְּהִלִּים

Psalms Chapter 122 תְּהִלִּים

א  שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת, לְדָוִד:
שָׂמַחְתִּי, בְּאֹמְרִים לִי–    בֵּית יְהוָה נֵלֵךְ.
1 A Song of Ascents; of David. {N}
I rejoiced when they said unto me: ‘Let us go unto the house of the LORD.’
ב  עֹמְדוֹת, הָיוּ רַגְלֵינוּ–    בִּשְׁעָרַיִךְ, יְרוּשָׁלִָם. 2 Our feet are standing within thy gates, O Jerusalem;
ג  יְרוּשָׁלִַם הַבְּנוּיָה–    כְּעִיר, שֶׁחֻבְּרָה-לָּהּ יַחְדָּו. 3 Jerusalem, that art builded as a city that is compact together;
ד  שֶׁשָּׁם עָלוּ שְׁבָטִים, שִׁבְטֵי-יָהּ–עֵדוּת לְיִשְׂרָאֵל:    לְהֹדוֹת, לְשֵׁם יְהוָה. 4 Whither the tribes went up, even the tribes of the LORD, as a testimony unto Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
ה  כִּי שָׁמָּה, יָשְׁבוּ כִסְאוֹת לְמִשְׁפָּט:    כִּסְאוֹת, לְבֵית דָּוִד. 5 For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
ו  שַׁאֲלוּ, שְׁלוֹם יְרוּשָׁלִָם;    יִשְׁלָיוּ, אֹהֲבָיִךְ. 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may they prosper that love thee.
ז  יְהִי-שָׁלוֹם בְּחֵילֵךְ;    שַׁלְוָה, בְּאַרְמְנוֹתָיִךְ. 7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
ח  לְמַעַן, אַחַי וְרֵעָי–    אֲדַבְּרָה-נָּא שָׁלוֹם בָּךְ. 8 For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say: ‘Peace be within thee.’
ט  לְמַעַן, בֵּית-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ–    אֲבַקְשָׁה טוֹב לָךְ. 9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
