Exodus 1 : 1 – 6 : 1
Oppression in Egypt
1 Now these are the names of Bnei-Yisrael who came into Egypt with Jacob, each man with his family: 2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi and Judah; 3 Issachar, Zebulun and Benjamin; 4 Dan, Naphtali, Gad and Asher. 5 The souls that came out of the line of Jacob numbered 70 in all, while Joseph was already in Egypt.
6 Then Joseph died, as did all his brothers and all that generation. 7 Yet Bnei-Yisrael were fruitful, increased abundantly, multiplied and grew extremely numerous—so the land was filled with them. 8 Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. 9 He said to his people, “Look, the people of Bnei-Yisrael are too numerous and too powerful for us. 10 Come, we must deal shrewdly with them, or else they will grow even more numerous, so that if war breaks out, they may join our enemies, fight against us, and then escape from the land.”a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus+1%3A1–6%3A1&version=TLV">"ttps://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus+1%3A1%E2%80%936%3A1&version=TLV</a><br /><br /></p>&l;/td><td rowspan="4">" " ">">"
Isaiah 27 : 6 – 28 : 13
Israel Will Blossom Again
6 In days to come Jacob will take root,
Israel will blossom and bud
and fill the face of the world with fruit.
7 Did He strike Israel
as He struck those who struck them?
Or were they slain
as their slayers were slain?
8 You contended with her by banishing her,
by driving her away.
With His fierce wind He expelled them
on the day of the east wind.
9 So by this will Jacob’s sin be atoned
and this the full price to remove his sin:
When he makes all the altar stones
like shattered chalk stones,
so that the Asherah poles and incense
rise no more.
10 The fortified city is a lonely habitation,
forlorn and forsaken like the desert.
There the calf will graze,
there lie down
and consume its branches.
11 When the boughs are withered,
they will be broken off.
Women come and set them on fire,
for it is a people of no understanding.
Therefore their Maker will show them no mercy—
He who formed them will give them no grace.
12 It will come about in that day,
Adonai will thresh from the channel of the River to the Wadi of Egypt,
and you will be gathered one by one, Bnei-Yisrael.13 It will also come about in that day, a great shofar will be blown.[a href="https:/www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isa.+27%3A6–28%3A13&version=TLV#fen-TLV-10677a">"] Those perishing in the land of Assyria and the exiles in the land of Egypt will come and worship Adonai on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.a href="https://www.biblegateway.cm/passage/?search=Isaiah+27%3A6–28%3A13&version=TLV">"ttps://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+27%3A6%E2%80%9328%3A13&version=TLV
Isaiah 29 : 22 – 23
Therefore, thus says Adonai, Redeemer of Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob:
“Jacob will no longer be ashamed,
no longer will his face grow pale;
23 for when he sees his children,
the work of My hands in his midst,
they will sanctify My Name;
they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob,
and stand in awe of the God of Israel.

Acts 7 : 17 – 35
17 “But as the time drew near for the promise God had sworn to Abraham, the people increased and multiplied in Egypt— 18 until ‘there arose another king over Egypt who knew nothing about Joseph.’ [a] 19 Dealing with our people with cruel cunning, this king mistreated our fathers and forced them to abandon their infants so they would not survive.
20 “At this time Moses was born—extraordinary before God. For three months he was nurtured in his father’s house. 21 And when he was set outside, Pharaoh’s daughter took him and raised him as her own son. 22 Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and he was powerful in his words and deeds. 23 “When he was approaching forty years of age, it came into his heart to visit his brothers, Bnei-Yisrael. 24 When he saw one of them being treated unjustly, he went to the defense of the oppressed man and avenged him by striking down the Egyptian. 25 He was assuming that his brothers understood that by his hand God was delivering them, but they did not understand. 26 So on the next day he appeared to them as they were fighting. He tried to reconcile them in shalom, saying, ‘Men, you are brothers. Why do you wrong one another?’https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts+7%3A17-35+&version=TLV
1 Corinthians 14 : 18 – 25
18 I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you. 19 However, in Messiah’s community I would rather speak five words with my mind, so I may also instruct others, than ten thousand words in a tongue.20 Brothers and sisters, stop being children in your thinking—rather, be infants in evil, but in your thinking be mature. 21 In the Prophets[a] it is written,“By those with strange tongues
and by the lips of strangers
I will speak to this people.
And not even then will they listen to me,” says Adonai. 22 Therefore tongues are a sign not for believers but for unbelievers—but prophecy is a sign not for unbelievers but for believers. 23 So if Messiah’s whole community comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and uninstructed or unbelieving people come in, won’t they say that you are crazy? 24 But if all are prophesying and some unbelieving or ungifted person comes in, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all. 25 The secrets of his heart become known, and so he will fall down on his face and worship God, declaring, “God really is among you!”[b]https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Cor.+14%3A18-25&version=TLV
Luke 5 : 12 – 39
Yeshua Heals and News Spreads
12 Now while Yeshua was in one of the towns, a man covered with tzara’at appeared. And when he saw Yeshua, he fell on his face and begged Him, saying, “Master, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”13 Yeshua stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing. Be cleansed!” Immediately, the tzara’at left him. 14 Yeshua ordered him to tell no one, but commanded him, “Go and show yourself to the kohen.[ahref="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Lk.+5%3A12–39&version=TLV#fen-TLV-25185a">"] Then bring an offering for your cleansing, just as Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”15 But the news about Yeshua was spreading all the more, and many crowds were coming together to hear and to be healed of their diseases. 16 Yet He would often slip away into the wilderness and pray.
Crowds Gather from the Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem
17 Now on one of those days, Yeshua was teaching. Pharisees and Torah scholars were sitting there, who had come from every village of the Galilee and Judea, as well as from Jerusalem. And Adonai’s power to heal was in Him. 18 And behold, men were carrying a paralyzed man on a stretcher, trying to bring him in and place him before Yeshua. 19 But when they found no way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down with his stretcher through the tiles, right in the middle before Yeshua. 20 When He saw their faith, He said, “Man, your sins are forgiven.”21 Then the Torah scholars and the Pharisees began to question, saying, “Who is this fellow speaking blasphemies? Who can pardon sins but God alone?”22 Yeshua, knowing their thoughts, replied to them, “Why are you raising questions in your hearts?a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+5%3A12–39&version=TLV">"ttps://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+5%3A12%E2%80%9339&version=TLV
