Geshur and Aram took the towns of Jair from them, with Kenath, and its villages, even sixty cities. All these were the sons of Machir the father of Gilead.
Their villages were Etam, and Ain, Rimmon, and Tochen, and Ashan, five cities;
and all their villages that were around the same cities, to Baal. These were their habitations, and they have their genealogy.
but the fields of the city, and its villages, they gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh.
and Obadiah the son of Shemaiah, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun, and Berechiah the son of Asa, the son of Elkanah, who lived in the villages of the Netophathites.
All these who were chosen to be porters in the thresholds were two hundred and twelve. These were reckoned by genealogy in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer did ordain in their office of trust.
Their brothers, in their villages, were to come in every seven days from time to time to be with them:
the sons of Hashem the Gizonite, Jonathan the son of Shagee the Hararite,
For you, my God, have revealed to your servant that you will build him a house. Therefore your servant has found courage to pray before you.
Be courageous, and let us be strong for our people, and for the cities of our God. May the LORD do that which seems good to him."
Then you will prosper, if you observe to do the statutes and the ordinances which the LORD gave Moses concerning Israel. Be strong, and courageous. Don't be afraid, neither be dismayed.
Over the king's treasures was Azmaveth the son of Adiel: and over the treasures in the fields, in the cities, and in the villages, and in the towers, was Jonathan the son of Uzziah:
Over those who did the work of the field for tillage of the ground was Ezri the son of Chelub:
David said to Solomon his son, "Be strong and courageous, and do it. Don't be afraid, nor be dismayed; for the LORD God, even my God, is with you. He will not fail you, nor forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the LORD is finished.
He died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and honor: and Solomon his son reigned in his place.
Yet if the unbeliever departs, let there be separation. The brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases, but God has called us in peace.
But if any man thinks that he is behaving inappropriately toward his virgin, if she is past the flower of her age, and if need so requires, let him do what he desires. He doesn't sin. Let them marry.
So then both he who gives his own virgin in marriage does well, and he who doesn't give her in marriage does better.
For though I was free from all, I brought myself under bondage to all, that I might gain the more.
Now all these things happened to them by way of example, and they were written for our admonition, on whom the ends of the ages have come.
For a man indeed ought not to have his head covered, because he is the image and glory of God, but the woman is the glory of the man.
and to another workings of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discerning of spirits; to another different kinds of languages; and to another the interpretation of languages.
God has set some in the assembly: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracle workers, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, and various kinds of languages.
Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with various languages? Do all interpret?
If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.
For he who speaks in another language speaks not to men, but to God; for no one understands; but in the Spirit he speaks mysteries.
He who speaks in another language edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the assembly.
Now I desire to have you all speak with other languages, but rather that you would prophesy. For he is greater who prophesies than he who speaks with other languages, unless he interprets, that the assembly may be built up.
But now, brothers, if I come to you speaking with other languages, what would I profit you, unless I speak to you either by way of revelation, or of knowledge, or of prophesying, or of teaching?
Therefore let him who speaks in another language pray that he may interpret.
For if I pray in another language, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.
I thank my God, I speak with other languages more than you all.
However in the assembly I would rather speak five words with my understanding, that I might instruct others also, than ten thousand words in another language.
In the law it is written, "By men of strange languages and by the lips of strangers I will speak to this people. Not even thus will they hear me, says the Lord."
Therefore other languages are for a sign, not to those who believe, but to the unbelieving; but prophesying is for a sign, not to the unbelieving, but to those who believe.
If therefore the whole assembly is assembled together and all speak with other languages, and unlearned or unbelieving people come in, won't they say that you are crazy?
What is it then, brothers? When you come together, each one of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has another language, has an interpretation. Let all things be done to build each other up.
If any man speaks in another language, let it be two, or at the most three, and in turn; and let one interpret.
Therefore, brothers, desire earnestly to prophesy, and don't forbid speaking with other languages.
As we have borne the image of those made of dust, let's also bear the image of the heavenly.
Watch! Stand firm in the faith! Be courageous! Be strong!
This is the message which we have heard from him and announce to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
Let us love one another, for love comes from God and every one who loves is a child of God and knows God. He who loves not man does not know God, for God is love. God showed his love for us, for he sent his only Son into the world that through him we might have life. Love ye therefore the stranger.
