All men have looked thereon. Man sees it afar off.
Which the skies pour down and which drop on man abundantly.
He covers his hands with the lightning, and commands it to strike the mark.

It is turned around by his guidance, that they may do whatever he commands them on the surface of the habitable world,

To cause it to rain on a land where no man is; on the wilderness, in which there is no man;

Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up, and makes his nest on high?

Will he make many petitions to you, or will he speak soft words to you?
It was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words to Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "My wrath is kindled against you, and against your two friends; for you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job has.
So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did what the LORD commanded them, and the LORD accepted Job.
A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness. As the dawn spreading on the mountains, a great and strong people; there has never been the like, neither will there be any more after them, even to the years of many generations.

This is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, even as he commanded.
He who keeps his commandments remains in him, and he in him. By this we know that he remains in us, by the Spirit which he gave us.
Beloved, don't believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
If a man says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who doesn't love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
This commandment we have from him, that he who loves God should also love his brother.
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep his commandments.
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. His commandments are not grievous.
I rejoice greatly that I have found some of your children walking in truth, even as we have been commanded by the Father.

There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John.
But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God's children, to those who believe in his name:
who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
This is he of whom I said, 'After me comes a man who is preferred before me, for he was before me.'
He said to him, "Most certainly, I tell you, hereafter you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.

As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,

A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."
The Samaritan woman therefore said to him, "How is it that you, being a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.)
The woman said to him, "Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. From where then have you that living water?
The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water, so that I don't get thirsty, neither come all the way here to draw."
The woman answered, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You said well, 'I have no husband,'
The woman said to him, "Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet.
Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe me, the hour comes, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, will you worship the Father.
The woman said to him, "I know that Messiah comes," (he who is called Christ). "When he has come, he will declare to us all things."
At this, his disciples came. They marveled that he was speaking with a woman; yet no one said, "What are you looking for?" or, "Why do you speak with her?"
So the woman left her water pot, and went away into the city, and said to the people,
"Come, see a man who told me everything that I did. Can this be the Christ?"
From that city many of the Samaritans believed in him because of the word of the woman, who testified, "He told me everything that I did."
Many more believed because of his word.
They said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of your speaking; for we have heard for ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world."
Jesus came therefore again to Cana of Galilee, where he made the water into wine. There was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum.
The nobleman said to him, "Sir, come down before my child dies."
Jesus said to him, "Go your way. Your son lives." The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way.
A certain man was there, who had been sick for thirty-eight years.
The sick man answered him, "Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I'm coming, another steps down before me."
Immediately, the man was made well, and took up his mat and walked. Now it was the Sabbath on that day.
Then they asked him, "Who is the man who said to you, 'Take up your mat, and walk'?"
The man went away, and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.
He also gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man.
But the testimony which I receive is not from man. However, I say these things that you may be saved.
"There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are these among so many?"

Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness. As it is written, 'He gave them bread out of heaven to eat.'"
Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died.
The Jews therefore contended with one another, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"
Jesus therefore said to them, "Most certainly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you don't have life in yourselves.
This is the bread which came down out of heaven--not as our fathers ate the manna, and died. He who eats this bread will live forever."
Therefore many of his disciples, when they heard this, said, "This is a hard saying! Who can listen to it?"
Then what if you would see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before?
At this, many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
There was much murmuring among the multitudes concerning him. Some said, "He is a good man." Others said, "Not so, but he leads the multitude astray."

But of the multitude, many believed in him. They said, "When the Christ comes, he won't do more signs than those which this man has done, will he?"
The Jews therefore said among themselves, "Where will this man go that we won't find him? Will he go to the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks?

The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this man!"

The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman taken in adultery. Having set her in the midst,
they told him, "Teacher, we found this woman in adultery, in the very act.
Now in our law, Moses commanded us to stone such. What then do you say about her?"
They, when they heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning from the oldest, even to the last. Jesus was left alone with the woman where she was, in the middle.
Jesus, standing up, saw her and said, "Woman, where are your accusers? Did no one condemn you?"
I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you. However he who sent me is true; and the things which I heard from him, these I say to the world."
Jesus therefore said to them, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and I do nothing of myself, but as my Father taught me, I say these things.
As he spoke these things, many believed in him.
But now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God. Abraham didn't do this.
Then the Jews said to him, "Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets; and you say, 'If a man keeps my word, he will never taste of death.'
As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth.
His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"
Jesus answered, "Neither did this man sin, nor his parents; but, that the works of God might be revealed in him.
When he had said this, he spat on the ground, made mud with the saliva, anointed the blind man's eyes with the mud,
He answered, "A man called Jesus made mud, anointed my eyes, and said to me, 'Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash.' So I went away and washed, and I received sight."
Some therefore of the Pharisees said, "This man is not from God, because he doesn't keep the Sabbath." Others said, "How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?" There was division among them.
Therefore they asked the blind man again, "What do you say about him, because he opened your eyes?" He said, "He is a prophet."
His parents said these things because they feared the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if any man would confess him as Christ, he would be put out of the synagogue.
So they called the man who was blind a second time, and said to him, "Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner."
We know that God has spoken to Moses. But as for this man, we don't know where he comes from."
The man answered them, "How amazing! You don't know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes.
If this man were not from God, he could do nothing."
No one takes it away from me, but I lay it down by myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. I received this commandment from my Father."
Many of them said, "He has a demon, and is insane! Why do you listen to him?"
Jesus answered them, "I have shown you many good works from my Father. For which of those works do you stone me?"
The Jews answered him, "We don't stone you for a good work, but for blasphemy: because you, being a man, make yourself God."
Many came to him. They said, "John indeed did no sign, but everything that John said about this man is true."
Many believed in him there.
Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus from Bethany, of the village of Mary and her sister, Martha.
Jesus answered, "Aren't there twelve hours of daylight? If a man walks in the day, he doesn't stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
But if a man walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light isn't in him."
Many of the Jews had joined the women around Martha and Mary, to console them concerning their brother.
Some of them said, "Couldn't this man, who opened the eyes of him who was blind, have also kept this man from dying?"
So they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, "Father, I thank you that you listened to me.
Therefore many of the Jews, who came to Mary and saw what Jesus did, believed in him.
The chief priests therefore and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said, "What are we doing? For this man does many signs.
If we leave him alone like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation."
nor do you consider that it is advantageous for us that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation not perish."
Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand. Many went up from the country to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves.
Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had commanded that if anyone knew where he was, he should report it, that they might seize him.
because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.
Jesus answered them, "The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
The multitude answered him, "We have heard out of the law that the Christ remains forever. How do you say, 'The Son of Man must be lifted up?' Who is this Son of Man?"
But though he had done so many signs before them, yet they didn't believe in him,
Nevertheless even of the rulers many believed in him, but because of the Pharisees they didn't confess it, so that they wouldn't be put out of the synagogue,
For I spoke not from myself, but the Father who sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
I know that his commandment is eternal life. The things therefore which I speak, even as the Father has said to me, so I speak."
Now no man at the table knew why he said this to him.
When he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, just like I have loved you; that you also love one another.
In my Father's house are many homes. If it weren't so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you.
If you love me, keep my commandments.
One who has my commandments, and keeps them, that person is one who loves me. One who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and will reveal myself to him."
Jesus answered him, "If a man loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our home with him.
But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father commanded me, even so I do. Arise, let us go from here.
If a man doesn't remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and remain in his love.
"This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have loved you.
You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you.
"I command these things to you, that you may love one another.
"I have yet many things to tell you, but you can't bear them now.
A woman, when she gives birth, has sorrow, because her time has come. But when she has delivered the child, she doesn't remember the anguish any more, for the joy that a human being is born into the world.

Pilate therefore went out to them, and said, "What accusation do you bring against this man?"
They answered him, "If this man weren't an evildoer, we wouldn't have delivered him up to you."
Then they all shouted again, saying, "Not this man, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a robber.
Jesus therefore came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment. Pilate said to them, "Behold, the man!"
At this, Pilate was seeking to release him, but the Jews cried out, saying, "If you release this man, you aren't Caesar's friend! Everyone who makes himself a king speaks against Caesar!"
Therefore many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, and in Greek.

Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred Roman pounds.
Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden. In the garden was a new tomb in which no man had ever yet been laid.
They told her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I don't know where they have laid him."
Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Who are you looking for?" She, supposing him to be the gardener, said to him, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away."
Therefore Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book;
Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land, full of great fish, one hundred fifty-three; and even though there were so many, the net wasn't torn.
Peter seeing him, said to Jesus, "Lord, what about this man?"
There are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they would all be written, I suppose that even the world itself wouldn't have room for the books that would be written.

He made a proclamation and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, "Let neither man nor animal, herd nor flock, taste anything; let them not feed, nor drink water;

No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not fail you nor forsake you.

Whoever rebels against your commandment, and doesn't listen to your words in all that you command him, he shall be put to death. Only be strong and courageous."

and command them, saying, 'Take from out of the middle of the Jordan, out of the place where the priests' feet stood firm, twelve stones, and carry them over with you, and lay them down in the lodging place, where you will lodge tonight.'"
Then Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of the children of Israel, out of every tribe a man.
The children of Israel did as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones out of the middle of the Jordan, as the LORD spoke to Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel; and they carried them over with them to the place where they lodged, and laid them down there.
For the priests who bore the ark stood in the middle of the Jordan, until everything was finished that the LORD commanded Joshua to speak to the people, according to all that Moses commanded Joshua; and the people hurried and passed over.
The children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, passed over armed before the children of Israel, as Moses spoke to them.

It shall be that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall go up every man straight before him."
Joshua commanded the people, saying, "You shall not shout, nor let your voice be heard, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I tell you to shout. Then you shall shout."
So the people shouted, and the priests blew the trumpets. It happened, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, that the people shouted with a great shout, and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
They utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, both young and old, and ox, and sheep, and donkey, with the edge of the sword.
Joshua said to the two men who had spied out the land, "Go into the prostitute's house, and bring out from there the woman and all that she has, as you swore to her."

He commanded them, saying, "Behold, you shall lie in ambush against the city, behind the city. Don't go very far from the city, but all of you be ready.
It shall be, when you have seized on the city, that you shall set the city on fire. You shall do this according to the word of the LORD. Behold, I have commanded you."
There was not a man left in Ai or Beth El who didn't go out after Israel. They left the city open, and pursued Israel.
Only the livestock and the spoil of that city Israel took for prey to themselves, according to the word of the LORD which he commanded Joshua.

There was not a word of all that Moses commanded, which Joshua didn't read before all the assembly of Israel, with the women, the little ones, and the foreigners who were among them.
They answered Joshua, and said, "Because your servants were certainly told how the LORD your God commanded his servant Moses to give you all the land, and to destroy all the inhabitants of the land from before you. Therefore we were very afraid for our lives because of you, and have done this thing.
the LORD said to Joshua, "Don't fear them, for I have delivered them into your hands. Not a man of them will stand before you."
There was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD listened to the voice of a man; for the LORD fought for Israel.

The children of Israel took all the spoil of these cities, with the livestock, as spoils for themselves; but every man they struck with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them. They didn't leave any who breathed.
As the LORD commanded Moses his servant, so Moses commanded Joshua. Joshua did so. He left nothing undone of all that the LORD commanded Moses.
For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, to come against Israel in battle, that he might utterly destroy them, that they might have no favor, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses.
Moses the servant of the LORD and the children of Israel struck them. Moses the servant of the LORD gave it for a possession to the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh.
all the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon to Misrephoth Maim, even all the Sidonians; them will I drive out from before the children of Israel: only allocate it to Israel for an inheritance, as I have commanded you.
