Genesis 23 : 1 – 25 : 18
Abraham Purchases Machpelah
23 Now Sarah’s life was 127 years—the years of Sarah’s life. 2 Sarah died in Kiriath-arba (that is, Hebron), in the land of Canaan. Abraham came to mourn for Sarah and to weep over her.
3 Then Abraham rose from before his dead one and spoke to the sons of Heth saying, 4 “I am an outsider and a sojourner among you. Give me a gravesite among you so that I may bury my dead from before my presence.”5 The sons of Heth answered Abraham, saying to him, 6 “Listen to us, my lord. You are a prince of God among us. Bury your dead in the best of our graves. None among us will withhold his grave from you, to bury your dead one.” 7 Then Abraham got up and bowed down to the people of the land, to the sons of Heth, 8 and spoke with them saying, “If you are of a mind to let me bury my dead from before my presence, listen to me. Plead with Ephron son of Zophar on my behalf, 9 that he may give me the cave of Machpelah that belongs to him, that is at the end of his field. At the full price let him give it to me in your midst for a gravesite.”10 Now Ephron was sitting in the midst of the sons of Heth. And Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the ears of the sons of Heth, all those who enter the gate of his city, saying, 11 “No, my lord, listen to me. The field—I hereby give it to you. Also the cave that is in it—I hereby give it to you. In the eyes of the sons of my people, I hereby give it to you. Bury your dead one.”a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Gen.+23%3A1–25%3A18&version=TLV">"ttps://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Gen.+23%3A1%E2%80%9325%3A18&version=TLV</a></p></td><td rowspan="4">" " ">">"">"">"" ">"nbsp;</td><td style="width: 400px;">"nbsp;</td><td style="width: 400px;">"nbsp;</td><td style="width: 200px;">"nbsp;</td></tr><tr><td colspan="3" ">" ">">">" ">"aftarah Reading</span></strong></em></span><br /><br />
<h2>1 Kings 1 : 1 – 31</h2>
<h3>Rivalry for the Throne</h3>
1 Now King David was old, advanced in years. Though they covered him with clothes, he could not keep warm. 2 So his servants said to him: “Let them seek a young virgin for my lord the king, and let her attend the king and be his nurse; and let her lie by your side, so my lord the king may keep warm.”<br /><br />3 So they sought for a beautiful girl throughout all the territory of Israel, and foud Abishag the Shunammite, and brought her to the king. 4 The girl was very beautiful. So she became the king’s nurse and served him, but the king was not intimate with her.5 Now Adonijah son of Haggith exalted himself, saying: “I’ll be king!” So he prepared for himself chariots, horsemen and 50 men to run before him. 6 His father had not scolded him at any time by asking: “Why have you behaved this way?” He was also a very handsome man; and he was born after Absalom.7 So he conferred with Joab son of Zeruiah and with Abiathar the <em>kohen</em>. Following Adonijah, they supported him. 8 But Zadok the <em>kohen</em>, Benaiah son of Jehoiada, Nathan the prophet, Shimei, Rei and David’s mighty men, were not on Adonijah’s side. 9 Then Adonijah sacrificed sheep, oxen and fattened cattle by the stone of Zoheleth[a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Kgs.+1%3A1–31&version=TLV#fen-TLV-8640a">"</a>], which is beside En-rogel, and invited all his brothers, the king’s sons, nd all the men of Judah, the king’s servants, 10 but he did not invite Nathan the prophet, Benaiah, the mighty men, or Solomon. 11 But Nathan spoke to Bath-sheba, Solomon’s mother, saying: “Haven’t you heard that Adonijah son of Haggith has assumed the kingship—and our lord David doesn’t know it?<a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Kgs.+1%3A1–31&version=TLV">"ttps://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Kgs.+1%3A1%E2%80%9331&version=TLV</a></td><td style="vertical-align: top;"><span style="col"><img src="images" alt="Prophet" wi" height="NaN" sty"></span></td></"><tr><td styl"> </td><td"> </td><td"> </td><td"> </td></t"><tr><td styl"><span style="col"><img src="images" alt="messianic" " height="458"></s"></td><td colsp" style="vertical-"><span style="col"><em><strong><spa" style="font-fami">Brit Chadashah R"ading</span></strong></em></span><br /><br />

Matthew 2 : 1 – 23
Wise Men Follow His Star
2 Now after Yeshua was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod, magi from the east came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is the One who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”[a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mt.+2%3A1–23&version=TLV#fen-TLV-23235a">"</a>]<br /><br /> 3 When King Herod heard, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 And when he had called together all the ruling <em>kohanim</em> and <em>Torah</em> scholars, he began to inquire of them where the Messiah was to be born. 5 So they told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it has been written by the prophet:6 ‘And you, Bethlehem, land of Judah,<br /> are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;<br />For out of you shall come a ruler<br /> who will shepherd My people Israel.’”[a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mt.+2%3A–23&version=TLV#fen-TLV-23239b">"</a>]7 Then Herod secretly called the magi and determined from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the Child. And when you have found Him, bring word back to me so that I may come and worship Him as well.” 9 After listening to the king, they went their way. And behold, the star they had seen in the east went on before them, until it came to rest over the place where the Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great gladness. 11 And when they came into the house, they saw the Child with His mother Miriam; and they fell down and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. [<a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mt.+2%3A1–23&version=TLV#fen-TLV-23245c">"</a>] 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their own country by another way.a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mt.+2%3A1–23&version=TLV">"ttps://www.biblegateway.co/passage/?search=Mt.+2%3A1%E2%80%9323&version=TLV</a><br /><h2>1 Corinthians 15 : 50 – 57</h2>50 Now I say this, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, and what decays cannot inherit what does not decay. 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery:<br /><br /> We shall not all sleep,<br />but we shall all be changed—<br />52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,<br />at the last <em>shofar</em>.[<a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Cor.+15%3A50-57&version=TLV#fen-TLV-28831a">a</a>]<br />For the <e">shofar</em> will sound"
and the dead will be raised incorruptible,
and we will be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruptibility,
and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 But when this corruptible will have put on incorruptibility
and this mortal will have put on immortality,
then shall come to pass the saying that is written:“Death is swallowed up in victory.”[b]
55 “Where, O Death, is your victory?
Where, O Death, is your sting?”[c]56 Now the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the Torah. 57 But thanks be to God, who keeps giving us the victory through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah!https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Cor.+15%3A50-57&version=TLV
