And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah
is great, and because their sin is verj^ grievous, I will go down now,
and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of
it, which is come unto me ; and if not, I will know. And the men
turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom : but
Abraham stood yet before the Lord.

And Abraham drew near, and said. Wilt thou also destroy
the righteous with the wicked ? Peradventure there be fifty right-
eous within the cit}^ : wilt thou also destroy and not spare the
place for the fifty righteous that are therein ? That be far from
thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked ;
and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from
thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? And the

And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she
had borne unto Abraham, mocking. Wherefore she said imto
Abraham, Cast out this bond-woman, and her son : for the son of
this bond-woman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.
And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight, because of
his son.

And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy
sight, because of the lad, and because of thy bond-woman ; in all
that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice : for in
Isaac shall thy seed be called. And also of the son of the bond-
woman will I make a nation, becausc 1)C is tl)jl SceD-

Wherefore say, Beliold, T give unto him my covenant of peace :
and he shall have it, a\\b l)is SCcb after l)im, even the covenant

And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley.

And Saul said unto the Kenites, Go, depart, get you down

from among tlie Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them : for iic

the Amalekites.

And Saul smote the Amalekites from Ilavilah until thou
comest to Shur, that is over against Egypt.

The Lord said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of
thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes which I
have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee,
and will give it to thy servant. Notwithstanding, in tl}ll bans 5
iDill not bo it for Danib tl)ij fatlicr's sake : but I will rend it

out of tlie hand oi" thy son. Ilowbeit, I will not rend away all the

kingdom ; but u)iU igiue ouc tribe to tlju sou, for Dauib mn

SCruant's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake which I have chosen.

And it came to pass at that time when Jeroboam went out of
Jerusalem, that the prophet Ahijah the Shilonite found him in the
way ; and he had clad himself with a new garment ; and they two
were alone in the field : and Ahijah caught the new garment that
was on him, and rent it in twelve pieces : and he said to Jero-
boam, Take thee ten pieces: for thus saith the Lord,. the God of
Israel, Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon,
and will give ten tribes to thee: (but l)e sl)all l)auc one tribe far
mu seroant Dauib's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake, the city which
I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel :) because that they
have forsaken me, and have worsliipped Ashtoreth the goddess of
the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the
god of the children of Amnion, and have not walked in my ways,
to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep ray statutes
and my judgments, as did David his father. Ilowbeit, I will not
take the whole kingdom out of his hand : but I will make him

prince all the days of his life for Dauib mu seriuint's Sake,
robom 3 cl)ose, because l)e kept mn commaubmeuls anb mn

will give it unto thee, even ten tribes. And unto his son will I

give one tribe, tbat Dauib mn seruant man [)avc a ligbt aluuin

Now in the eighteenth year of king Jeroboam the son of Ne-
bat reigned Ahijam over Judah. Three years reigned he in Jeru-



salem. And his mother's name was Maachah, the daughter of
Abishalom. And he walked in all the sins of his father, Avhich he
had done before liira : and his heart was not perfect with the Lord
his God, as the heart of David liis father. Nevertheless, fov Diiuib's
sake did the Lord his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set
up his son after him, and to estalilish Jerusalem : bccauSC Dlluib

bib tljiU U)l)icl) loas rigl)! intlje eyes of ll)e Cori, and turned
not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of
his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.

And in the fifth year of Joram the son of Ahab king of Israel,
Jehoshaphat being then king of Judah, Jehoram the son of Jehos-
haphat king of Judah began to reign. Thirty and two years old
was he when he began to regin ; and he reigned eight years in
Jerusalem. And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, as
did the house of Ahab : for the daughter of Ahab was his wife :
and he did evil in the sight of the Lord. Yet the Lord would not
destroy Judah, for Dayib !)is servant's sake, as he promised
him to give him alway a light, and to his children.

And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in
executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the
house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, tl)n cljilbren

of tl)c fourti) generation sljall sit on tijc tl)ronc of Israel.

Hazael king of Syria oppressed Israel all the days of Je-
hoahaz. And the Lord was gracious unto them, and had com-
passion on them, and had respect unto them, becansc of 1)15 cov-
enant iDitl) QVbral]am, Isaac, anb Sacob, and would not de-
stroy them, neither cast he them from his presence as yet.

In the thirty and eighth year of Azariah king of Judah did
Zachariah the son of Jeroboam reign over Israel in Samaria six
months. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord,
as his fathers had done : he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam
the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin. And Shallum the son
of Jabesh conspired against him, and smote him before the people,
and slew liim, and reigned in his stead. And the rest of the acts
of Zachariah, behold, they are written in the book of the Chroni-
cles of the kinofs of Israel. This was the word of the Lord which
he spake unto Jehu, saying, Thy sons shall sit on the throne of
Israel unto the fourth generation. And so it came to pass.

ment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be

And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my
sin, and the sin of my peo]ile Israel, and presenting my supplication
before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God ; yea,
whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I
had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly,
touched me about the time of the evening oblation. And he in-
formed mo, and talked with ino, ami said, O I)ani<^l, I am now come*
forth to give tlioe skill and understanding. At the beginning of



thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to
shew thee ; for thou art greatly beloved : therefore understand the
matter, and consider the vision. Seventy weeks are determined
upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish tlie transgression,
and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity,

vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ : for it is the power
of God unto salvation to every one that believeth ; to the Jew first,
and also to the Greek, fox therein is tl}C rigl)tcousnes0 of
(Sob rCDCalcb from faiti) to faitl) : as it is written, The just shall
live by faith.

By the deeds of the law, there shall no flesh be justified in
his sight : for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now tl)C

What saith the scripture ? Abraham believed God, and it
•was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that work-
eth, is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him
that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly,
his faith is counted for riarhteousness. Even as David also de-
scribeth the blessedness of the man unto whom God imputCtl)
rigl)tCOUsncss tDitljOUt tuorks, saying, Blessed are they whose
iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the
man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or
upon the uncircumcision also ? For we say that faith was reck-
oned to Abraham for righteousness. How was it then reckoned ?
when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision ? Not in cir-
cumcision, but in uncircumcision. And he received the sign of
circumcision, a seal of tl)C riglltCOUsncss of tlie frtitl) U)l]icl) l)C
liab JjCt being ttncircnmciscb ; that he might be the father of
all them that believe, though they be not circumcised, tlliU tigljt-

cousncss migljt be imputcb unto tl)em also; and the father of

circumcision to them who are not of tlie circumcision only, but who
also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which
he had being yet uncircumcised. For the promise that he should
be the heir of the world was nof to Abraham, or to his seed,

through the law, but through tl)e rigljteousncss of faitl).

If by one man's offence death reigned by one ; much more
they which receive abundance of grace and of tl)C gift of rigl)t-
eonsuess, shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Therefore, as

What shall we say then ? That the Gentiles which followed
not after rio-hteousness, have attained to righteousness, tiicu tI)C
rigljtconsncSG tDl)irl) is of faitl) : but Israel, which followed after
the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of rifjhteous-
ness. Wherefore ? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it
were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stum-
bling-stone ; as it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stund.)ling-
stone, and rock of oft'ence : and whosoever believeth on him shall
not be ashamed.

tl]C enh of tl)C lam for rigbtconsncss to every one that believeth.
For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That
the man which doeth those things shall live by them. But the
righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in
thine heart. Who shall ascend into heaven ? (that is to bring Christ
down from above :) or, W"ho shall descend into the deep ? (that is,
to bring up Christ again from the dead.) But what saith it ? The
word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart : that is,
the word of faith, which we preach : that if thou shalt confess Avith
thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that
God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For
with the heart man believeth niUO rigI)tC0nsncS5 ; and with the
mouth confession is made unto salvation.
