"And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink.’", 20.6. "And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tent of meeting, and fell upon their faces; and the glory of the LORD appeared unto them.", 20.7. "And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:", 20.8. "’Take the rod, and assemble the congregation, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes, that it give forth its water; and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock; so thou shalt give the congregation and their cattle drink.’", 20.9. "And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as He commanded him.", 20.10. "And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock, and he said unto them: ‘Hear now, ye rebels; are we to bring you forth water out of this rock?’", 20.11. "And Moses lifted up his hand, and smote the rock with his rod twice; and water came forth abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their cattle.", 20.12. "And the LORD said unto Moses and Aaron: ‘Because ye believed not in Me, to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.’", 20.13. "These are the waters of Meribah, where the children of Israel strove with the LORD, and He was sanctified in them.", 21.1.

"And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border; but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into the wilderness, and came to Jahaz; and he fought against Israel.", 21.24. "And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from the Arnon unto the Jabbok, even unto the children of Ammon; for the border of the children of Ammon was strong.", 21.25. "And Israel took all these cities; and Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the towns thereof.", 21.26. "For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all his land out of his hand, even unto the Arnon.", 21.27. "Wherefore they that speak in parables say: Come ye to Heshbon! Let the city of Sihon be built and established!", 21.28. "For a fire is gone out of Heshbon, A flame from the city of Sihon; It hath devoured Ar of Moab, The lords of the high places of Arnon.", 21.29. "Woe to thee, Moab! Thou art undone, O people of Chemosh; He hath given his sons as fugitives, And his daughters into captivity, Unto Sihon king of the Amorites.", 21.30. "We have shot at them—Heshbon is perished—even unto Dibon, And we have laid waste even unto Nophah, Which reacheth unto Medeba.", 21.31. "Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites.", 22.5. "And he sent messengers unto Balaam the son of Beor, to Pethor, which is by the River, to the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying: ‘Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt; behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me.", 22.11. "Behold the people that is come out of Egypt, it covereth the face of the earth; now, come curse me them; peradventure I shall be able to fight against them, and shall drive them out.’", 25.1. "And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit harlotry with the daughters of Moab.", 25.2. "And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods; and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.", 25.3. "And Israel joined himself unto the Baal of Peor; and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.", 25.4. "And the LORD said unto Moses: ‘Take all the chiefs of the people, and hang them up unto the LORD in face of the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may turn away from Israel.’", 25.5. "And Moses said unto the judges of Israel: ‘Slay ye every one his men that have joined themselves unto the Baal of Peor.’", 25.6. "And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, while they were weeping at the door of the tent of meeting.", 25.7. "And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from the midst of the congregation, and took a spear in his hand.", 25.8. "And he went after the man of Israel into the chamber, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.", 25.9. "And those that died by the plague were twenty and four thousand.", 25.10. "And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:", 25.11. "’Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned My wrath away from the children of Israel, in that he was very jealous for My sake among them, so that I consumed not the children of Israel in My jealousy.", 25.12. "Wherefore say: Behold, I give unto him My covet of peace;", 25.13. "and it shall be unto him, and to his seed after him, the covet of an everlasting priesthood; because he was jealous for his God, and made atonement for the children of Israel.’", 25.14. "Now the name of the man of Israel that was slain, who was slain with the Midianitish woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu, a prince of a fathers’house among the Simeonites.", 25.15. "And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain was Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he was head of the people of a fathers’house in Midian.", 34.27. "And of the tribe of the children of Asher a prince, Ahihud the son of Shelomi.",

"For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left; and there remained not any green thing, either tree or herb of the field, through all the land of Egypt.", 11.1. "And the LORD said unto Moses: ‘Yet one plague more will I bring upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence; when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether.", 12.33. "And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, to send them out of the land in haste; for they said: ‘We are all dead men.’", 12.39. "And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victual.", 13.21. "And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; that they might go by day and by night:", 13.22.

"And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians were marching after them; and they were sore afraid; and the children of Israel cried out unto the LORD.", 14.11. "And they said unto Moses: ‘Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to bring us forth out of Egypt?", 14.12. "Is not this the word that we spoke unto thee in Egypt, saying: Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it were better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.’", 15.1. "Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spoke, saying: I will sing unto the LORD, for He is highly exalted; The horse and his rider hath He thrown into the sea.", 17.1. "And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, by their stages, according to the commandment of the LORD, and encamped in Rephidim; and there was no water for the people to drink.", 17.2. "Wherefore the people strove with Moses, and said: ‘Give us water that we may drink.’ And Moses said unto them: ‘Why strive ye with me? wherefore do ye try the LORD?’", 17.3. "And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said: ‘Wherefore hast thou brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?’", 17.4. "And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying: ‘What shall I do unto this people? they are almost ready to stone me.’", 17.5. "And the LORD said unto Moses: ‘Pass on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thy hand, and go.", 17.6. "Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink.’ And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.", 17.7. "And the name of the place was called Massah, and Meribah, because of the striving of the children of Israel, and because they tried the LORD, saying: ‘Is the LORD among us, or not?’", 17.8. "Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.", 17.9. "And Moses said unto Joshua: ‘Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek; tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.’", 17.10. "So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.", 17.11. "And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.", 17.12. "But Moses’hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.", 17.13. "And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.", 17.14. "And the LORD said unto Moses: ‘Write this for a memorial in the book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.’", 17.15. "And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Adonai-nissi.", 17.16. "And he said: ‘The hand upon the throne of the LORD: the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.’", 18.1. "Now Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses’father-in-law, heard of all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel His people, how that the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt.", 18.2. "And Jethro, Moses’father-in-law, took Zipporah, Moses’wife, after he had sent her away,", 18.3. "and her two sons; of whom the name of the one was Gershom; for he said: ‘I have been a stranger in a strange land’;", 18.4. "and the name of the other was Eliezer: ‘for the God of my father was my help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh.’", 18.5. "And Jethro, Moses’father-in-law, came with his sons and his wife unto Moses into the wilderness where he was encamped, at the mount of God;", 18.6. "and he said unto Moses: ‘I thy father-in-law Jethro am coming unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her.’", 18.7. "And Moses went out to meet his father-in-law, and bowed down and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare; and they came into the tent.", 18.8. "And Moses told his father-in-law all that the LORD had done unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel’s sake, all the travail that had come upon them by the way, and how the LORD delivered them.", 18.9. "And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the LORD had done to Israel, in that He had delivered them out of the hand of the Egyptians.", 18.10. "And Jethro said: ‘Blessed be the LORD, who hath delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh; who hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.", 18.11. "Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods; yea, for that they dealt proudly against them.’", 18.12. "And Jethro, Moses’father-in-law, took a burnt-offering and sacrifices for God; and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel, to eat bread with Moses’father-in-law before God.", 21.4. "If his master give him a wife, and she bear him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master’s, and he shall go out by himself.",

"And Haman said unto king Ahasuerus: ‘There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the peoples in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse from those of every people; neither keep they the king’s laws; therefore it profiteth not the king to suffer them.", 6.13.

"This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the peoples that are under the whole heaven, who, when they hear the report of thee, shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee.’", 2.26. "And I sent messengers out of the wilderness of Kedemoth unto Sihon king of Heshbon with words of peace, saying:", 2.27. "’Let me pass through thy land; I will go along by the highway, I will neither turn unto the right hand nor to the left.", 2.28. "Thou shalt sell me food for money, that I may eat; and give me water for money, that I may drink; only let me pass through on my feet;", 2.29. "as the children of Esau that dwell in Seir, and the Moabites that dwell in Ar, did unto me; until I shall pass over the Jordan into the land which the LORD our God giveth us.’ .", 2.30. "But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him; for the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that He might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day.", 2.31. "And the LORD said unto me: ‘Behold, I have begun to deliver up Sihon and his land before thee; begin to possess his land.’", 2.32. "Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, unto battle at Jahaz.", 2.33. "And the LORD our God delivered him up before us; and we smote him, and his sons, and all his people.", 2.34. "And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed every city, the men, and the women, and the little ones; we left none remaining;", 2.35. "only the cattle we took for a prey unto ourselves, with the spoil of the cities which we had taken.", 2.36. "From Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of Arnon, and from the city that is in the valley, even unto Gilead, there was not a city too high for us: the LORD our God delivered up all before us.", 2.37. "Only to the land of the children of Ammon thou camest not near; all the side of the river Jabbok, and the cities of the hill-country, and wheresoever the LORD our God forbade us.", 3.6. "And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying every city, the men, and the women, and the little ones.", 8.13. "and when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;", 9.23. "And when the LORD sent you from Kadesh-barnea, saying: ‘Go up and possess the land which I have given you’; then ye rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God, and ye believed Him not, nor hearkened to His voice.", 23.4. "An Ammonite or a Moabite shall not enter into the assembly of the LORD; even to the tenth generation shall none of them enter into the assembly of the LORD for ever;", 23.5. "because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor of Aram-naharaim, to curse thee.", 23.6. "Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the LORD thy God loved thee.", 23.7. "Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever.", 26.5. "And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God: ‘A wandering Aramean was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there, few in number; and he became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous.", 26.6. "And the Egyptians dealt ill with us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage.", 26.7. "And we cried unto the LORD, the God of our fathers, and the LORD heard our voice, and saw our affliction, and our toil, and our oppression.", 26.8. "And the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders.", 26.9. "And He hath brought us into this place, and hath given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.", 26.10. "And now, behold, I have brought the first of the fruit of the land, which Thou, O LORD, hast given me.’ And thou shalt set it down before the LORD thy God, and worship before the LORD thy God.", 28.27. "The LORD will smite thee with the boil of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.", 28.35. "The LORD will smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore boil, whereof thou canst not be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the crown of thy head.", 29.17. "lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go to serve the gods of those nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood;", 29.18. "and it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying: ‘I shall have peace, though I walk in the stubbornness of my heart—that the watered be swept away with the dry’;", 29.19. "the LORD will not be willing to pardon him, but then the anger of the LORD and His jealousy shall be kindled against that man, and all the curse that is written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven;", 29.20. "and the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covet that is written in this book of the law.", 29.21. "And the generation to come, your children that shall rise up after you, and the foreigner that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses wherewith the LORD hath made it sick;", 29.22. "and that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and a burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the LORD overthrew in His anger, and in His wrath;", 29.23. "even all the nations shall say ‘Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?’", 29.24. "then men shall say: ‘Because they forsook the covet of the LORD, the God of their fathers, which He made with them when He brought them forth out of the land of Egypt;", 29.25. "and went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods that they knew not, and that He had not allotted unto them;", 29.26. "therefore the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curse that is written in this book;", 29.27. "and the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day’.—", 29.28. "The secret things belong unto the LORD our God; but the things that are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.", 32.1. "Give ear, ye heavens, and I will speak; And let the earth hear the words of my mouth.", 32.51. "Because ye trespassed against Me in the midst of the children of Israel at the waters of Meribath-kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified Me not in the midst of the children of Israel.",

"And when the Lord raised them up judges, then the Lord was with the judge, and saved them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge: for the Lord relented on account of their groanings, caused by those that oppressed them and vexed them.", 2.19. "And it came to pass, when the judge was dead, that they relapsed, and became more corrupt than their fathers, in following other gods to serve them, and to bow down to them; they omitted nothing of their practices, nor of their stubborn way.", 2.20. "And the anger of the Lord burned against Yisra᾽el; and he said, Because this people has transgressed my covet which I commanded their fathers, and has not hearkened to my voice;", 2.21.

"But Siĥon did not trust Yisra᾽el to pass through his border: but Siĥon gathered all his people together, and pitched in Yahaż and fought against Yisra᾽el.", 11.21. "And the Lord God of Yisra᾽el delivered Siĥon and all his people into the hand of Yisra᾽el, and they smote them: so Yisra᾽el possessed all the land of the Emori, the inhabitants of that country.", 11.22. "And they possessed all the border of the Emori from Arnon even as far as Yabboq, and from the wilderness as far as the Yarden.", 11.23. "So now the Lord God of Yisra᾽el has driven out the Emori from before his people Yisra᾽el, and shouldst thou possess their land?", 11.24. "Wilt not thou possess that which Kemosh thy god gives thee to possess? So likewise that which the Lord our God has voided before us, that shall we possess.", 11.25. "And now art thou at all better than Balaq the son of Żippor, king of Mo᾽av? did he ever strive against Yisra᾽el, or did he ever fight against them,", 11.26. "while Yisra᾽el dwelt in Ĥeshbon and its hamlets, and in ῾Ar῾or and its hamlets, and in all the cities that are along by the shores of Arnon, for three hundred years? why did you not recover them within that time?", 11.27. "But I have not sinned against thee, but thou doest me wrong to war against me: the Lord the Judge be judge this day between the children of Yisra᾽el and the children of ῾Ammon.", 11.28. "Howbeit the king of the children of ῾Ammon did not hearken to the words of Yiftaĥ which he sent him.", 14.16. "And Shimshon’s wife wept before him, and said, Thou dost but hate me, and lovest me not: thou hast propounded a riddle to the children of my people, and hast not told it me. And he said to her, Behold, I have not told it my father nor my mother and shall I tell it thee?", 14.17. "And she wept before him the seven days, while their feast lasted: and it came to pass on the seventh day, that he told her, because she harassed him: and she told the riddle to the children of her people.", 14.18. "And the men of the city said to him on the seventh day before the sun went down, What is sweeter than honey? and what is stronger than a lion? And he said to them, If you had not ploughed with my heifer, you would not have found out my riddle.", 16.28. "And Shimshon called to the Lord, and said, O Lord God, remember me, I pray Thee, and strengthen me, I pray Thee, only this once, O God, that I may be avenged on the Pelishtim for one of my two eyes.", 16.29. "And Shimshon took hold of the two central pillars upon which the house stood, and he supported himself on them, on the one with his right hand, and on the other with his left.", 16.30. "And Shimshon said, Let me die with the Pelishtim. And he bowed with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were in it. So the dead whom he slew at his death were more than those whom he slew in his life.",

"Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Aram, was a great man with his master, and held in esteem, because by him the LORD had given victory unto Aram; he was also a mighty man of valour, but he was a leper.", 5.2. "And the Arameans had gone out in bands, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman’s wife.", 5.3. "And she said unto her mistress: ‘Would that my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! then would he recover him of his leprosy.’", 5.4. "And he went in, and told his lord, saying: ‘Thus and thus said the maid that is of the land of Israel.’", 5.5. "And the king of Aram said: ‘Go now, and I will send a letter unto the king of Israel.’ And he departed, and took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand pieces of gold, and ten changes of raiment.", 5.6. "And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying: ‘And now when this letter is come unto thee, behold, I have sent Naaman my servant to thee, that thou mayest recover him of his leprosy.’", 5.7. "And it came to pass, when the king of Israel had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said: ‘Am I God, to kill and to make alive, that this man doth send unto me to recover a man of his leprosy? but consider, I pray you, and see how he seeketh an occasion against me.’", 5.8. "And it was so, when Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had rent his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying: ‘Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.’", 5.9. "So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariots, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha.", 5.10. "And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying: ‘Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come back to thee, and thou shalt be clean.’", 5.11. "But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said: ‘Behold, I thought: He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the LORD his God, and wave his hand over the place, and recover the leper.", 5.12. "Are not Amanah and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean?’ So he turned, and went away in a rage.", 5.13. "And his servants came near, and spoke unto him, and said: ‘My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee: Wash, and be clean?’", 5.14. "Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in the Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh came back like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.", 5.15. "And he returned to the man of God, he and all his company, and came, and stood before him; and he said: ‘Behold now, I know that there is no God in all the earth, but in Israel; now therefore, I pray thee, take a present of thy servant.’", 13.7. "For there was not left to Jehoahaz of the people save fifty horsemen, and ten chariots, and ten thousand footmen; for the king of Aram destroyed them, and made them like the dust in threshing.", 17.7. "And it was so, because the children of Israel had sinned against the LORD their God, who brought them up out of the land of Egypt from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and had feared other gods,", 17.8. "and walked in the statutes of the nations, whom the LORD cast out from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they practised;", 17.9. "and the children of Israel did impute things that were not right unto the LORD their God, and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fortified city;", 17.10. "and they set them up pillars and Asherim upon every high hill, and under every leafy tree;", 17.11. "and there they offered in all the high places, as did the nations whom the LORD carried away before them; and wrought wicked things to provoke the LORD;", 17.12. "and they served idols, whereof the LORD had said unto them: ‘Ye shall not do this thing’;", 17.13. "yet the LORD forewarned Israel, and Judah, by the hand of every prophet, and of every seer, saying: ‘Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep My commandments and My statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by the hand of My servants the prophets’;", 17.14. "notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their neck, like to the neck of their fathers, who believed not in the LORD their God;", 17.15. "and they rejected His statutes, and His covet that He made with their fathers, and His testimonies wherewith He testified against them; and they went after things of nought, and became nought, and after the nations that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them that they should not do like them;", 17.16. "and they forsook all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made an Asherah, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal;", 17.17. "and they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and gave themselves over to do that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him;", 17.18. "that the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of His sight; there was none left but the tribe of Judah only.", 17.19. "Also Judah kept not the commandments of the LORD their God, but walked in the statutes of Israel which they practised.", 17.20. "And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until He had cast them out of His sight.", 17.21. "For He rent Israel from the house of David; and they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king; and Jeroboam drew Israel away from following the LORD, and made them sin a great sin.", 17.22. "And the children of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did; they departed not from them;", 17.23. "until the LORD removed Israel out of His sight, as He spoke by the hand of all His servants the prophets. So Israel was carried away out of their own land to Assyria, unto this day.", 18.19. "And Rab-shakeh said unto them: ‘Say ye now to Hezekiah: Thus saith the great king, the king of Assyria: What confidence is this wherein thou trustest?", 18.20. "Sayest thou that a mere word of the lips is counsel and strength for the war? Now on whom dost thou trust, that thou hast rebelled against me?", 18.21. "Now, behold, thou trustest upon the staff of this bruised reed, even upon Egypt; whereon if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it; so is Pharaoh king of Egypt unto all that trust on him.", 18.22. "But if ye say unto me: We trust in the LORD our God; is not that He, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath taken away, and hath said to Judah and to Jerusalem: Ye shall worship before this altar in Jerusalem?", 18.23. "Now therefore, I pray thee, make a wager with my master the king of Assyria, and I will give thee two thousand horses, if thou be able on thy part to set riders upon them.", 18.24. "How then canst thou turn away the face of one captain, even of the least of my masters servants? and yet thou puttest thy trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen!", 18.25. "Am I now come up without the LORD against this place to destroy it? The LORD said unto me: Go up against this land, destroy it.’", 18.26. "Then said Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, and Shebnah, and Joah, unto Rab-shakeh: ‘Speak, I pray thee, to thy servants in the Aramean language; for we understand it; and speak not with us in the Jews’language, in the ears of the people that are on the wall.’", 24.2. "And the LORD sent against him bands of the Chaldeans, and bands of the Arameans, and bands of the Moabites, and bands of the children of Ammon, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the LORD, which He spoke by the hand of His servants the prophets.",

Well, answered Gobryas, shall I also tell the truth? Aye, by Zeus, answered Cyrus ; surely no question calls for a falsehood. Well, then, he replied, I should consent much more readily now, I assure you. And would you mind telling us why? asked Cyrus . Certainly not. Tell us, then.

"Yea, forty years didst Thou sustain them in the wilderness, and they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not.", 9.22. "Moreover Thou gavest them kingdoms and peoples, which Thou didst allot quarter by quarter; so they possessed the land of Sihon, even the land of the king of Heshbon, and the land of Og king of Bashan.", 9.23. "Their children also didst Thou multiply as the stars of heaven, and didst bring them into the land, concerning which Thou didst say to their fathers, that they should go in to possess it.", 9.24. "So the children went in and possessed the land, and Thou didst subdue before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, and gavest them into their hands, with their kings, and the peoples of the land, that they might do with them as they would.", 9.25. "And they took fortified cities, and a fat land, and possessed houses full of all good things, cisterns hewn out, vineyards, and oliveyards, and fruit-trees in abundance; so they did eat, and were filled, and became fat, and luxuriated in Thy great goodness.", 9.26. "Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against Thee, and cast Thy law behind their back, and slew Thy prophets that did forewarn them to turn them back unto Thee, and they wrought great provocations.", 9.27. "Therefore Thou didst deliver them into the hand of their adversaries, who distressed them; and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto Thee, Thou heardest from heaven; and according to Thy manifold mercies Thou gavest them saviours who might save them out of the hand of their adversaries.", 9.28. "But after they had rest, they did evil again before Thee; therefore didst Thou leave them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them; yet when they returned, and cried unto Thee, many times didst Thou hear from heaven, and deliver them according to Thy mercies;", 9.29. "and didst forewarn them, that Thou mightest bring them back unto Thy law; yet they dealt proudly, and hearkened not unto Thy commandments, but sinned against Thine ordices, which if a man do, he shall live by them, and presented a stubborn shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear.", 9.30. "Yet many years didst Thou extend mercy unto them, and didst forewarn them by Thy spirit through Thy prophets; yet would they not give ear; therefore gavest Thou them into the hand of the peoples of the lands.", 9.31. "Nevertheless in Thy manifold mercies Thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for Thou art a gracious and merciful God.", 9.32. "Now therefore, our God, the great, the mighty, and the awful God, who keepest covet and mercy, let not all the travail seem little before Thee, that hath come upon us, on our kings, on our princes, and on our priests, and on our prophets, and on our fathers, and on all Thy people, since the time of the kings of Assyria unto this day.", 9.33. "Howbeit Thou art just in all that is come upon us; for Thou hast dealt truly, but we have done wickedly;", 9.34. "neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept Thy law, nor hearkened unto Thy commandments and Thy testimonies, wherewith Thou didst testify against them.", 9.35. "For they have not served Thee in their kingdom, and in Thy great goodness that Thou gavest them, and in the large and fat land which Thou gavest before them, neither turned they from their wicked works.", 9.36. "Behold, we are servants this day, and as for the land that Thou gavest unto our fathers to eat the fruit thereof and the good thereof, behold, we are servants in it.", 9.37. "And it yieldeth much increase unto the kings whom Thou hast set over us because of our sins; also they have power over our bodies, and over our cattle, at their pleasure, and we are in great distress.’",

1.56. When he heard these verses, Croesus was pleased with them above all, for he thought that a mule would never be king of the Medes instead of a man, and therefore that he and his posterity would never lose his empire. Then he sought very carefully to discover who the mightiest of the Greeks were, whom he should make his friends. ,He found by inquiry that the chief peoples were the Lacedaemonians among those of Doric, and the Athenians among those of Ionic stock. These races, Ionian and Dorian, were the foremost in ancient time, the first a Pelasgian and the second a Hellenic people. The Pelasgian race has never yet left its home; the Hellenic has wandered often and far. ,For in the days of king Deucalion it inhabited the land of Phthia , then the country called Histiaean, under Ossa and Olympus , in the time of Dorus son of Hellen; driven from this Histiaean country by the Cadmeans, it settled about Pindus in the territory called Macedonian; from there again it migrated to Dryopia, and at last came from Dryopia into the Peloponnese , where it took the name of Dorian. 1.57. What language the Pelasgians spoke I cannot say definitely. But if one may judge by those that still remain of the Pelasgians who live above the Tyrrheni in the city of Creston —who were once neighbors of the people now called Dorians, and at that time inhabited the country which now is called Thessalian— ,and of the Pelasgians who inhabited Placia and Scylace on the Hellespont , who came to live among the Athenians, and by other towns too which were once Pelasgian and afterwards took a different name: if, as I said, one may judge by these, the Pelasgians spoke a language which was not Greek. ,If, then, all the Pelasgian stock spoke so, then the Attic nation, being of Pelasgian blood, must have changed its language too at the time when it became part of the Hellenes. For the people of Creston and Placia have a language of their own in common, which is not the language of their neighbors; and it is plain that they still preserve the manner of speech which they brought with them in their migration into the places where they live. 1.58. But the Hellenic stock, it seems clear to me, has always had the same language since its beginning; yet being, when separated from the Pelasgians, few in number, they have grown from a small beginning to comprise a multitude of nations, chiefly because the Pelasgians and many other foreign peoples united themselves with them. Before that, I think, the Pelasgic stock nowhere increased much in number while it was of foreign speech. 1.131. As to the customs of the Persians, I know them to be these. It is not their custom to make and set up statues and temples and altars, but those who do such things they think foolish, because, I suppose, they have never believed the gods to be like men, as the Greeks do; ,but they call the whole circuit of heaven Zeus, and to him they sacrifice on the highest peaks of the mountains; they sacrifice also to the sun and moon and earth and fire and water and winds. ,From the beginning, these are the only gods to whom they have ever sacrificed; they learned later to sacrifice to the “heavenly” Aphrodite from the Assyrians and Arabians. She is called by the Assyrians Mylitta, by the Arabians Alilat, by the Persians Mitra. 1.136. After valor in battle it is accounted noble to father the greatest number of sons: the king sends gifts yearly to him who gets most. Strength, they believe, is in numbers. ,They educate their boys from five to twenty years old, and teach them only three things: riding and archery and honesty. A boy is not seen by his father before he is five years old, but lives with the women: the point of this is that, if the boy should die in the interval of his rearing, the father would suffer no grief. 1.138. Furthermore, of what they may not do, they may not speak, either. They hold lying to be the most disgraceful thing of all and next to that debt; for which they have many other reasons, but this in particular: it is inevitable (so they say) that the debtor also speak some falsehood. The citizen who has leprosy or the white sickness may not come into town or mingle with other Persians. They say that he is so afflicted because he has sinned in some way against the sun. ,Every stranger who gets such a disease, many drive out of the country; and they do the same to white doves, for the reason given. Rivers they especially revere; they will neither urinate nor spit nor wash their hands in them, nor let anyone else do so. 4.1. After taking Babylon , Darius himself marched against the Scythians. For since Asia was bursting with men and vast revenues were coming in, Darius desired to punish the Scythians for the wrong they had begun when they invaded Media first and defeated those who opposed them in battle. ,For the Scythians, as I have said before, ruled upper Asia for twenty-eight years; they invaded Asia in their pursuit of the Cimmerians, and ended the power of the Medes, who were the rulers of Asia before the Scythians came. ,But when the Scythians had been away from their homes for twenty-eight years and returned to their country after so long an absence, as much trouble as their Median war awaited them. They found themselves opposed by a great force; for the Scythian women, when their husbands were away for so long, turned to their slaves. 4.5. The Scythians say that their nation is the youngest in the world, and that it came into being in this way. A man whose name was Targitaüs appeared in this country, which was then desolate. They say that his parents were Zeus and a daughter of the Borysthenes river (I do not believe the story, but it is told). ,Such was Targitaüs' lineage; and he had three sons: Lipoxaïs, Arpoxaïs, and Colaxaïs, youngest of the three. ,In the time of their rule (the story goes) certain implements—namely, a plough, a yoke, a sword, and a flask, all of gold—fell down from the sky into Scythia . The eldest of them, seeing these, approached them meaning to take them; but the gold began to burn as he neared, and he stopped. ,Then the second approached, and the gold did as before. When these two had been driven back by the burning gold, the youngest brother approached and the burning stopped, and he took the gold to his own house. In view of this, the elder brothers agreed to give all the royal power to the youngest. 4.6. Lipoxaïs, it is said, was the father of the Scythian clan called Auchatae; Arpoxaïs, the second brother, of those called Katiari and Traspians; the youngest, who was king, of those called Paralatae. ,All these together bear the name of Skoloti, after their king; “Scythians” is the name given them by Greeks. This, then, is the Scythians' account of their origin, 4.7. and they say that neither more nor less than a thousand years in all passed from the time of their first king Targitaüs to the entry of Darius into their country. The kings guard this sacred gold very closely, and every year offer solemn sacrifices of propitiation to it. ,Whoever falls asleep at this festival in the open air, having the sacred gold with him, is said by the Scythians not to live out the year; for which reason (they say) as much land as he can ride round in one day is given to him. Because of the great size of the country, the lordships that Colaxaïs established for his sons were three, one of which, where they keep the gold, was the greatest. ,Above and north of the neighbors of their country no one (they say) can see or travel further, because of showers of feathers; for earth and sky are full of feathers, and these hinder sight. 4.8. This is what the Scythians say about themselves and the country north of them. But the story told by the Greeks who live in Pontus is as follows. Heracles, driving the cattle of Geryones, came to this land, which was then desolate, but is now inhabited by the Scythians. ,Geryones lived west of the Pontus , settled in the island called by the Greeks Erythea, on the shore of Ocean near Gadira, outside the pillars of Heracles. As for Ocean, the Greeks say that it flows around the whole world from where the sun rises, but they cannot prove that this is so. ,Heracles came from there to the country now called Scythia , where, encountering wintry and frosty weather, he drew his lion's skin over him and fell asleep, and while he slept his mares, which were grazing yoked to the chariot, were spirited away by divine fortune. 4.9. When Heracles awoke, he searched for them, visiting every part of the country, until at last he came to the land called the Woodland, and there he found in a cave a creature of double form that was half maiden and half serpent; above the buttocks she was a woman, below them a snake. ,When he saw her he was astonished, and asked her if she had seen his mares straying; she said that she had them, and would not return them to him before he had intercourse with her; Heracles did, in hope of this reward. ,But though he was anxious to take the horses and go, she delayed returning them, so that she might have Heracles with her for as long as possible; at last she gave them back, telling him, “These mares came, and I kept them safe here for you, and you have paid me for keeping them, for I have three sons by you. ,Now tell me what I am to do when they are grown up: shall I keep them here (since I am queen of this country), or shall I send them away to you?” Thus she inquired, and then (it is said) Heracles answered: ,“When you see the boys are grown up, do as follows and you will do rightly: whichever of them you see bending this bow and wearing this belt so, make him an inhabitant of this land; but whoever falls short of these accomplishments that I require, send him away out of the country. Do so and you shall yourself have comfort, and my will shall be done.” 4.10. So he drew one of his bows (for until then Heracles always carried two), and showed her the belt, and gave her the bow and the belt, that had a golden vessel on the end of its clasp; and, having given them, he departed. But when the sons born to her were grown men, she gave them names, calling one of them Agathyrsus and the next Gelonus and the youngest Scythes; furthermore, remembering the instructions, she did as she was told. ,Two of her sons, Agathyrsus and Gelonus, were cast out by their mother and left the country, unable to fulfill the requirements set; but Scythes, the youngest, fulfilled them and so stayed in the land. ,From Scythes son of Heracles comes the whole line of the kings of Scythia ; and it is because of the vessel that the Scythians carry vessels on their belts to this day. This alone his mother did for Scythes. This is what the Greek dwellers in Pontus say. 4.11. There is yet another story, to which account I myself especially incline. It is to this effect. The nomadic Scythians inhabiting Asia , when hard pressed in war by the Massagetae, fled across the Araxes river to the Cimmerian country (for the country which the Scythians now inhabit is said to have belonged to the Cimmerians before), ,and the Cimmerians, at the advance of the Scythians, deliberated as men threatened by a great force should. Opinions were divided; both were strongly held, but that of the princes was the more honorable; for the people believed that their part was to withdraw and that there was no need to risk their lives for the dust of the earth; but the princes were for fighting to defend their country against the attackers. ,Neither side could persuade the other, neither the people the princes nor the princes the people; the one party planned to depart without fighting and leave the country to their enemies, but the princes were determined to lie dead in their own country and not to flee with the people, for they considered how happy their situation had been and what ills were likely to come upon them if they fled from their native land. ,Having made up their minds, the princes separated into two equal bands and fought with each other until they were all killed by each other's hands; then the Cimmerian people buried them by the Tyras river, where their tombs are still to be seen, and having buried them left the land; and the Scythians came and took possession of the country left empty. 4.12. And to this day there are Cimmerian walls in Scythia , and a Cimmerian ferry, and there is a country Cimmeria and a strait named Cimmerian. ,Furthermore, it is evident that the Cimmerians in their flight from the Scythians into Asia also made a colony on the peninsula where the Greek city of Sinope has since been founded; and it is clear that the Scythians pursued them and invaded Media, missing their way; ,for the Cimmerians always fled along the coast, and the Scythians pursued with the Caucasus on their right until they came into the Median land, turning inland on their way. That is the other story current among Greeks and foreigners alike. 4.13. There is also a story related in a poem by Aristeas son of Caüstrobius, a man of Proconnesus . This Aristeas, possessed by Phoebus, visited the Issedones; beyond these (he said) live the one-eyed Arimaspians, beyond whom are the griffins that guard gold, and beyond these again the Hyperboreans, whose territory reaches to the sea. ,Except for the Hyperboreans, all these nations (and first the Arimaspians) are always at war with their neighbors; the Issedones were pushed from their lands by the Arimaspians, and the Scythians by the Issedones, and the Cimmerians, living by the southern sea, were hard pressed by the Scythians and left their country. Thus Aristeas' story does not agree with the Scythian account about this country. 4.126. As this went on for a long time and did not stop, Darius sent a horseman to Idanthyrsus the Scythian king, with this message: “You crazy man, why do you always run, when you can do otherwise? If you believe yourself strong enough to withstand my power, stand and fight and stop running; but if you know you are the weaker, then stop running like this and come to terms with your master, bringing gifts of earth and water.” 4.127. Idanthyrsus the Scythian king replied: “It is like this with me, Persian: I never ran from any man before out of fear, and I am not running from you now; I am not doing any differently now than I am used to doing in time of peace, too. ,As to why I do not fight with you at once, I will tell you why. We Scythians have no towns or cultivated land, out of fear for which, that the one might be taken or the other wasted, we would engage you sooner in battle. But if all you want is to come to that quickly, we have the graves of our fathers. ,Come on, find these and try to destroy them: you shall know then whether we will fight you for the graves or whether we will not fight. Until then, unless we have reason, we will not engage with you. ,As to fighting, enough; as to masters, I acknowledge Zeus my forefather and Hestia queen of the Scythians only. As for you, instead of gifts of earth and water I shall send such as ought to come to you; and for your boast that you are my master, I say ‘Weep!’” Such is the proverbial “Scythian speech.” 4.132. When they heard this, the Persians deliberated. Darius' judgment was that the Scythians were surrendering themselves and their earth and their water to him; for he reasoned that a mouse is a creature found in the earth and eating the same produce as men, and a frog is a creature of the water and a bird particularly like a horse; and the arrows signified that the Scythians surrendered their fighting power. ,This was the opinion declared by Darius; but the opinion of Gobryas, one of the seven who had slain the Magus, was contrary to it. He reasoned that the meaning of the gifts was, ,“Unless you become birds, Persians, and fly up into the sky, or mice and hide in the earth, or frogs and leap into the lakes, you will be shot by these arrows and never return home.” 5.17. So those of the Paeonians who had been captured were taken into Asia. Then Megabazus, having made the Paeonians captive, sent as messengers into Macedonia the seven Persians who (after himself) were the most honorable in his army. These were sent to Amyntas to demand earth and water for Darius the king. ,Now there is a very straight way from the Prasiad lake to Macedonia. First there is near the lake that mine from which Alexander later drew a daily revenue of a talent of silver, and when a person has passed the mine, he need only cross the mountain called Dysorum to be in Macedonia. 5.18. The Persians who had been sent as envoys came to Amyntas and demanded earth and water for Darius the king. He readily gave to them what they asked and invited them to be his guests, preparing a dinner of great splendor and receiving them hospitably. ,After dinner, the Persians said to Amyntas as they sat drinking together, “Macedonian, our host, it is our custom in Persia to bring in also the concubines and wedded wives to sit by the men after the giving of any great banquet. We ask you, then, (since you have received us heartily, are entertaining us nobly and are giving Darius our king earth and water) to follow our custom.” ,To this Amyntas replied, “ We have no such custom, Persians. Among us, men and women sit apart, but since you are our masters and are making this request, it shall be as you desire.” With that, Amyntas sent for the women. Upon being called, the women entered and sat down in a row opposite the Persians. ,Then the Persians, seeing beautiful women before them, spoke to Amyntas and said that there was no sense in what he had done. It would be better if the women had never come at all than that they should come and not sit beside the men, but sit opposite them to torment their eyes. ,Amyntas, now feeling compelled to do so, bade the women sit beside them. When the women had done as they were bidden, the Persians, flushed as they were with excess of wine, at once laid hands on the women's breasts, and one or another tried to kiss them. 5.73. These men, then, were bound and put to death. After that, the Athenians sent to bring back Cleisthenes and the seven hundred households banished by Cleomenes. Then, desiring to make an alliance with the Persians, they despatched envoys to Sardis, for they knew that they had provoked the Lacedaemonians and Cleomenes to war. ,When the envoys came to Sardis and spoke as they had been bidden, Artaphrenes son of Hystaspes, viceroy of Sardis, asked them, “What men are you and where do you live, who desire alliance with the Persians?” When he had received the information he wanted from the envoys, he gave them an answer the substance of which was that if the Athenians gave king Darius earth and water, then he would make an alliance with them, but if not, his command was that they should depart. ,The envoys consulted together, and in their desire to make the alliance, they consented to give what was asked. They then returned to their own country and were there greatly blamed for what they had done. 6.48. Then Darius attempted to learn whether the Greeks intended to wage war against him or to surrender themselves. He sent heralds this way and that throughout Hellas, bidding them demand a gift of earth and water for the king. ,He despatched some to Hellas, and he sent others to his own tributary cities of the coast, commanding that ships of war and transports for horses be built. 6.94. Thus Athens and Aegina grappled together in war. The Persian was going about his own business, for his servant was constantly reminding him to remember the Athenians, and the Pisistratidae were at his elbow maligning the Athenians; moreover, Darius desired to take this pretext for subduing all the men of Hellas who had not given him earth and water. ,He dismissed from command Mardonius, who had fared so badly on his expedition, and appointed other generals to lead his armies against Athens and Eretria, Datis, a Mede by birth, and his own nephew Artaphrenes son of Artaphrenes; the order he gave them at their departure was to enslave Athens and Eretria and bring the slaves into his presence. 7.32. After he arrived in Sardis, he first sent heralds to Hellas to demand earth and water and to command the preparation of meals for the king. He sent demands for earth everywhere except to Athens and Lacedaemon. The reason for his sending for earth and water the second time was this: he fully believed that whoever had not previously given it to Darius' messengers would now be compelled to give by fear; so he sent out of desire to know this for certain. 7.101. After he passed by all his fleet and disembarked from the ship, he sent for Demaratus son of Ariston, who was on the expedition with him against Hellas. He summoned him and said, “Demaratus, it is now my pleasure to ask you what I wish to know. You are a Greek, and, as I am told both by you and by the other Greeks whom I have talked to, a man from neither the least nor the weakest of Greek cities. ,So tell me: will the Greeks offer battle and oppose me? I think that even if all the Greeks and all the men of the western lands were assembled together, they are not powerful enough to withstand my attack, unless they are united. ,Still I want to hear from you what you say of them.” To this question Demaratus answered, “O king, should I speak the truth or try to please you?” Xerxes bade him speak the truth and said that it would be no more unpleasant for him than before. 7.102. Demaratus heard this and said, “O King, since you bid me by all means to speak the whole truth, and to say what you will not later prove to be false, in Hellas poverty is always endemic, but courage is acquired as the fruit of wisdom and strong law; by use of this courage Hellas defends herself from poverty and tyranny. ,Now I praise all the Greeks who dwell in those Dorian lands, yet I am not going to speak these words about all of them, but only about the Lacedaemonians. First, they will never accept conditions from you that bring slavery upon Hellas; and second, they will meet you in battle even if all the other Greeks are on your side. ,Do not ask me how many these men are who can do this; they will fight with you whether they have an army of a thousand men, or more than that, or less.” 7.103. When he heard this, Xerxes smiled and said, “What a strange thing to say, Demaratus, that a thousand men would fight with so great an army! Come now, tell me this: you say that you were king of these men. Are you willing right now to fight with ten men? Yet if your state is entirely as you define it, you as their king should by right encounter twice as many according to your laws. ,If each of them is a match for ten men of my army, then it is plain to me that you must be a match for twenty; in this way you would prove that what you say is true. But if you Greeks who so exalt yourselves are just like you and the others who come to speak with me, and are also the same size, then beware lest the words you have spoken be only idle boasting. ,Let us look at it with all reasonableness: how could a thousand, or ten thousand, or even fifty thousand men, if they are all equally free and not under the rule of one man, withstand so great an army as mine? If you Greeks are five thousand, we still would be more than a thousand to one. ,If they were under the rule of one man according to our custom, they might out of fear of him become better than they naturally are, and under compulsion of the lash they might go against greater numbers of inferior men; but if they are allowed to go free they would do neither. I myself think that even if they were equal in numbers it would be hard for the Greeks to fight just against the Persians. ,What you are talking about is found among us alone, and even then it is not common but rare; there are some among my Persian spearmen who will gladly fight with three Greeks at once. You have no knowledge of this and are spouting a lot of nonsense.” 7.104. To this Demaratus answered, “O king I knew from the first that the truth would be unwelcome to you. But since you compelled me to speak as truly as I could, I have told you how it stands with the Spartans. ,You yourself best know what love I bear them: they have robbed me of my office and the privileges of my house, and made me a cityless exile; your father received me and gave me a house and the means to live on. It is not reasonable for a sensible man to reject goodwill when it appears; rather he will hold it in great affection. ,I myself do not promise that I can fight with ten men or with two, and I would not even willingly fight with one; yet if it were necessary, or if some great contest spurred me, I would most gladly fight with one of those men who claim to be each a match for three Greeks. ,So is it with the Lacedaemonians; fighting singly they are as brave as any man living, and together they are the best warriors on earth. They are free, yet not wholly free: law is their master, whom they fear much more than your men fear you. ,They do whatever it bids; and its bidding is always the same, that they must never flee from the battle before any multitude of men, but must abide at their post and there conquer or die. If I seem to you to speak foolishness when I say this, then let me hereafter hold my peace; it is under constraint that I have now spoken. But may your wish be fulfilled, King.” 7.131. Xerxes stayed for many days in the region of Pieria while a third part of his army was clearing a road over the Macedonian mountains so that the whole army might pass by that way to the Perrhaebian country. Now it was that the heralds who had been sent to Hellas to demand earth, some empty-handed, some bearing earth and water, returned. 7.132. Among those who paid that tribute were the Thessalians, Dolopes, Enienes, Perrhaebians, Locrians, Magnesians, Melians, Achaeans of Phthia, Thebans, and all the Boeotians except the men of Thespiae and Plataea. ,Against all of these the Greeks who declared war with the foreigner entered into a sworn agreement, which was this: that if they should be victorious, they would dedicate to the god of Delphi the possessions of all Greeks who had of free will surrendered themselves to the Persians. Such was the agreement sworn by the Greeks. 7.138. The professed intent of the king's march was to attack Athens, but in truth all Hellas was his aim. This the Greeks had long since learned, but not all of them regarded the matter alike. ,Those of them who had paid the tribute of earth and water to the Persian were of good courage, thinking that the foreigner would do them no harm, but they who had refused tribute were afraid, since there were not enough ships in Hellas to do battle with their invader; furthermore, the greater part of them had no stomach for grappling with the war, but were making haste to side with the Persian. 7.163. After such dealings with Gelon the Greek envoys sailed away. Gelon, however, feared that the Greeks would not be able to overcome the barbarian, while believing it dreadful and intolerable that he, the tyrant of Sicily, should go to the Peloponnese to be at the beck and call of Lacedaemonians. For this reason he took no more thought of this plan but followed another instead. ,As soon as he was informed that the Persian had crossed the Hellespont, he sent Cadmus son of Scythes, a man of Cos, to Delphi with three fifty-oared ships, bringing them money and messages of friendship. Cadmus was to observe the outcome of the battle, and if the barbarian should be victorious, he was to give him both the money, and earth and water on behalf of Gelon's dominions. If, however, the Greeks were victorious, he was to bring everything back again. 7.209. When Xerxes heard that, he could not comprehend the fact that the Lacedaemonians were actually, to the best of their ability, preparing to kill or be killed. What they did appeared laughable to him, so he sent for Demaratus the son of Ariston, who was in his camp. ,When this man arrived, he asked him about each of these matters, wanting to understand what it was that the Lacedaemonians were doing. Demaratus said, “You have already heard about these men from me, when we were setting out for Hellas, but when you heard, you mocked me, although I told you how I expected things to turn out. It is my greatest aim, O King, to be truthful in your presence. ,So hear me now. These men have come to fight us for the pass, and it for this that they are preparing. This is their custom: when they are about to risk their lives, they arrange their hair. ,Rest assured that if you overcome these men and those remaining behind at Sparta, there is no one else on earth who will raise his hands to withstand you, my King. You are now attacking the fairest kingdom in Hellas and men who are the very best.” ,What he said seemed completely incredible to Xerxes, so he then asked how they, who were so few in number, would fight against his army. Demaratus answered, “My King, take me for a liar if this does not turn out as I say.” So he spoke, but he did not persuade Xerxes. 7.233. The Thebans, whose general was Leontiades, fought against the king's army as long as they were with the Hellenes and under compulsion. When, however, they saw the Persian side prevailing and the Hellenes with Leonidas hurrying toward the hill, they split off and approached the barbarians, holding out their hands. With the most truthful words ever spoken, they explained that they were Medizers, had been among the first to give earth and water to the king, had come to Thermopylae under constraint, and were guiltless of the harm done to the king. ,By this plea they saved their lives, and the Thessalians bore witness to their words. They were not, however, completely lucky. When the barbarians took hold of them as they approached, they killed some of them even as they drew near. Most of them were branded by Xerxes command with the kings marks, starting with the general Leontiades. His son Eurymachus long afterwards was murdered by the Plataeans when, as general of four hundred Thebans, he seized the town of Plataea. 8.47. All these people who live this side of Thesprotia and the Acheron river took part in the war. The Thesprotians border on the Ampraciots and Leucadians, who were the ones who came from the most distant countries to take part in the war. The only ones living beyond these to help Hellas in its danger were the Crotonians, with one ship. Its captain was Phayllus, three times victor in the Pythian games. The Crotonians are Achaeans by birth.

1.21. But not fifty days passed before two of Sennacheribs sons killed him, and they fled to the mountains of Ararat. Then Esarhaddon, his son, reigned in his place; and he appointed Ahikar, the son of my brother Anael, over all the accounts of his kingdom and over the entire administration. 1.22. Ahikar interceded for me, and I returned to Nineveh. Now Ahikar was cupbearer, keeper of the signet, and in charge of administration of the accounts, for Esarhaddon had appointed him second to himself. He was my nephew. 2.10. I did not know that there were sparrows on the wall and their fresh droppings fell into my open eyes and white films formed on my eyes. I went to physicians, but they did not help me. Ahikar, however, took care of me until he went to Elymais. 11.19. and Tobias marriage was celebrated for seven days with great festivity. 14.10. Bury me properly, and your mother with me. And do not live in Nineveh any longer. See, my son, what Nadab did to Ahikar who had reared him, how he brought him from light into darkness, and with what he repaid him. But Ahikar was saved, and the other received repayment as he himself went down into the darkness. Ahikar gave alms and escaped the deathtrap which Nadab had set for him; but Nadab fell into the trap and perished.

1.2. he is the king who built walls about Ecbatana with hewn stones three cubits thick and six cubits long; he made the walls seventy cubits high and fifty cubits wide; 1.4. and he made its gates, which were seventy cubits high and forty cubits wide, so that his armies could march out in force and his infantry form their ranks -- 1.7. Then Nebuchadnezzar king of the Assyrians sent to all who lived in Persia and to all who lived in the west, those who lived in Cilicia and Damascus and Lebanon and Antilebanon and all who lived along the seacoast, 1.8. and those among the nations of Carmel and Gilead, and Upper Galilee and the great Plain of Esdraelon, 1.9. and all who were in Samaria and its surrounding towns, and beyond the Jordan as far as Jerusalem and Bethany and Chelous and Kadesh and the river of Egypt, and Tahpanhes and Raamses and the whole land of Goshen, 1.10. even beyond Tanis and Memphis, and all who lived in Egypt as far as the borders of Ethiopia. 1.11. But all who lived in the whole region disregarded the orders of Nebuchadnezzar king of the Assyrians, and refused to join him in the war; for they were not afraid of him, but looked upon him as only one man, and they sent back his messengers empty-handed and shamefaced. 1.12. Then Nebuchadnezzar was very angry with this whole region, and swore by his throne and kingdom that he would surely take revenge on the whole territory of Cilicia and Damascus and Syria, that he would kill them by the sword, and also all the inhabitants of the land of Moab, and the people of Ammon, and all Judea, and every one in Egypt, as far as the coasts of the two seas. 1.13. In the seventeenth year he led his forces against King Arphaxad, and defeated him in battle, and overthrew the whole army of Arphaxad, and all his cavalry and all his chariots. 1.14. Thus he took possession of his cities, and came to Ecbatana, captured its towers, plundered its markets, and turned its beauty into shame. 2.1. In the eighteenth year, on the twenty-second day of the first month, there was talk in the palace of Nebuchadnezzar king of the Assyrians about carrying out his revenge on the whole region, just as he said. 2.2. He called together all his officers and all his nobles and set forth to them his secret plan and recounted fully, with his own lips, all the wickedness of the region; 2.3. and it was decided that every one who had not obeyed his command should be destroyed. 2.4. When he had finished setting forth his plan, Nebuchadnezzar king of the Assyrians called Holofernes, the chief general of his army, second only to himself, and said to him, 2.5. "Thus says the Great King, the lord of the whole earth: When you leave my presence, take with you men confident in their strength, to the number of one hundred and twenty thousand foot soldiers and twelve thousand cavalry. 2.6. Go and attack the whole west country, because they disobeyed my orders. 2.7. Tell them to prepare earth and water, for I am coming against them in my anger, and will cover the whole face of the earth with the feet of my armies, and will hand them over to be plundered by my troops, 2.8. till their wounded shall fill their valleys, and every brook and river shall be filled with their dead, and overflow; 2.9. and I will lead them away captive to the ends of the whole earth. 2.10. You shall go and seize all their territory for me in advance. They will yield themselves to you, and you shall hold them for me till the day of their punishment. 2.11. But if they refuse, your eye shall not spare and you shall hand them over to slaughter and plunder throughout your whole region. 2.12. For as I live, and by the power of my kingdom, what I have spoken my hand will execute. 2.13. And you -- take care not to transgress any of your sovereign's commands, but be sure to carry them out just as I have ordered you; and do not delay about it." 2.14. So Holofernes left the presence of his master, and called together all the commanders, generals, and officers of the Assyrian army, 2.18. also plenty of food for every man, and a huge amount of gold and silver from the royal palace. 2.19. So he set out with his whole army, to go ahead of King Nebuchadnezzar and to cover the whole face of the earth to the west with their chariots and horsemen and picked troops of infantry. 2.20. Along with them went a mixed crowd like a swarm of locusts, like the dust of the earth -- a multitude that could not be counted. 2.27. Then he went down into the plain of Damascus during the wheat harvest, and burned all their fields and destroyed their flocks and herds and sacked their cities and ravaged their lands and put to death all their young men with the edge of the sword. 3.1. So they sent messengers to sue for peace, and said, 3.2. "Behold, we the servants of Nebuchadnezzar, the Great King, lie prostrate before you. Do with us whatever you will. 3.3. Behold, our buildings, and all our land, and all our wheat fields, and our flocks and herds, and all our sheepfolds with their tents, lie before you; do with them whatever you please. 3.4. Our cities also and their inhabitants are your slaves; come and deal with them in any way that seems good to you." 3.5. The men came to Holofernes and told him all this. 3.6. Then he went down to the seacoast with his army and stationed garrisons in the hilltop cities and took picked men from them as his allies. 3.7. And these people and all in the country round about welcomed him with garlands and dances and tambourines. 3.8. And he demolished all their shrines and cut down their sacred groves; for it had been given to him to destroy all the gods of the land, so that all nations should worship Nebuchadnezzar only, and all their tongues and tribes should call upon him as god. 3.10. here he camped between Geba and Scythopolis, and remained for a whole month in order to assemble all the supplies for his army. 4.2. they were therefore very greatly terrified at his approach, and were alarmed both for Jerusalem and for the temple of the Lord their God. 4.3. For they had only recently returned from the captivity, and all the people of Judea were newly gathered together, and the sacred vessels and the altar and the temple had been consecrated after their profanation. 4.5. and immediately seized all the high hilltops and fortified the villages on them and stored up food in preparation for war -- since their fields had recently been harvested. 4.7. ordering them to seize the passes up into the hills, since by them Judea could be invaded, and it was easy to stop any who tried to enter, for the approach was narrow, only wide enough for two men at the most. 4.9. And every man of Israel cried out to God with great fervor, and they humbled themselves with much fasting. 4.10. They and their wives and their children and their cattle and every resident alien and hired laborer and purchased slave -- they all girded themselves with sackcloth. 4.11. And all the men and women of Israel, and their children, living at Jerusalem, prostrated themselves before the temple and put ashes on their heads and spread out their sackcloth before the Lord. 4.12. They even surrounded the altar with sackcloth and cried out in unison, praying earnestly to the God of Israel not to give up their infants as prey and their wives as booty, and the cities they had inherited to be destroyed, and the sanctuary to be profaned and desecrated to the malicious joy of the Gentiles. 4.13. So the Lord heard their prayers and looked upon their affliction; for the people fasted many days throughout Judea and in Jerusalem before the sanctuary of the Lord Almighty. 4.14. And Joakim the high priest and all the priests who stood before the Lord and ministered to the Lord, with their loins girded with sackcloth, offered the continual burnt offerings and the vows and freewill offerings of the people. 4.15. With ashes upon their turbans, they cried out to the Lord with all their might to look with favor upon the whole house of Israel. 5.1. When Holofernes, the general of the Assyrian army, heard that the people of Israel had prepared for war and had closed the passes in the hills and fortified all the high hilltops and set up barricades in the plains, 5.3. and said to them, "Tell me, you Canaanites, what people is this that lives in the hill country? What cities do they inhabit? How large is their army, and in what does their power or strength consist? Who rules over them as king, leading their army? 5.4. And why have they alone, of all who live in the west, refused to come out and meet me?" 5.5. Then Achior, the leader of all the Ammonites, said to him, "Let my lord now hear a word from the mouth of your servant, and I will tell you the truth about this people that dwells in the nearby mountain district. No falsehood shall come from your servant's mouth. 5.6. This people is descended from the Chaldeans. 5.7. At one time they lived in Mesopotamia, because they would not follow the gods of their fathers who were in Chaldea. 5.8. For they had left the ways of their ancestors, and they worshiped the God of heaven, the God they had come to know; hence they drove them out from the presence of their gods; and they fled to Mesopotamia, and lived there for a long time. 5.9. Then their God commanded them to leave the place where they were living and go to the land of Canaan. There they settled, and prospered, with much gold and silver and very many cattle. 5.10. When a famine spread over Canaan they went down to Egypt and lived there as long as they had food; and there they became a great multitude -- so great that they could not be counted. 5.11. So the king of Egypt became hostile to them; he took advantage of them and set them to making bricks, and humbled them and made slaves of them. 5.12. Then they cried out to their God, and he afflicted the whole land of Egypt with incurable plagues; and so the Egyptians drove them out of their sight. 5.13. Then God dried up the Red Sea before them, 5.14. and he led them by the way of Sinai and Kadesh-barnea, and drove out all the people of the wilderness. 5.15. So they lived in the land of the Amorites, and by their might destroyed all the inhabitants of Heshbon; and crossing over the Jordan they took possession of all the hill country. 5.16. And they drove out before them the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Jebusites and the Shechemites and all the Gergesites, and lived there a long time. 5.17. As long as they did not sin against their God they prospered, for the God who hates iniquity is with them. 5.18. But when they departed from the way which he had appointed for them, they were utterly defeated in many battles and were led away captive to a foreign country; the temple of their God was razed to the ground, and their cities were captured by their enemies. 5.19. But now they have returned to their God, and have come back from the places to which they were scattered, and have occupied Jerusalem, where their sanctuary is, and have settled in the hill country, because it was uninhabited. 5.20. Now therefore, my master and lord, if there is any unwitting error in this people and they sin against their God and we find out their offense, then we will go up and defeat them. 5.21. But if there is no transgression in their nation, then let my lord pass them by; for their Lord will defend them, and their God will protect them, and we shall be put to shame before the whole world." 5.22. When Achior had finished saying this, all the men standing around the tent began to complain; Holofernes' officers and all the men from the seacoast and from Moab insisted that he must be put to death. 5.24. Therefore let us go up, Lord Holofernes, and they will be devoured by your vast army." 6.1. When the disturbance made by the men outside the council died down, Holofernes, the commander of the Assyrian army, said to Achior and all the Moabites in the presence of all the foreign contingents: 6.3. He will send his forces and will destroy them from the face of the earth, and their God will not deliver them -- we the king's servants will destroy them as one man. They cannot resist the might of our cavalry. 6.4. We will burn them up, and their mountains will be drunk with their blood, and their fields will be full of their dead. They cannot withstand us, but will utterly perish. So says King Nebuchadnezzar, the lord of the whole earth. For he has spoken; none of his words shall be in vain. 6.5. "But you, Achior, you Ammonite hireling, who have said these words on the day of your iniquity, you shall not see my face again from this day until I take revenge on this race that came out of Egypt. 6.11. So the slaves took him and led him out of the camp into the plain, and from the plain they went up into the hill country and came to the springs below Bethulia. 6.14. Then the men of Israel came down from their city and found him; and they untied him and brought him into Bethulia and placed him before the magistrates of their city, 6.16. They called together all the elders of the city, and all their young men and their women ran to the assembly; and they set Achior in the midst of all their people, and Uzziah asked him what had happened. 6.17. He answered and told them what had taken place at the council of Holofernes, and all that he had said in the presence of the Assyrian leaders, and all that Holofernes had said so boastfully against the house of Israel. 6.18. Then the people fell down and worshiped God, and cried out to him, and said, 6.19. "O Lord God of heaven, behold their arrogance, and have pity on the humiliation of our people, and look this day upon the faces of those who are consecrated to thee." 6.20. Then they consoled Achior, and praised him greatly. 7.9. "Let our lord hear a word, lest his army be defeated. 7.14. They and their wives and children will waste away with famine, and before the sword reaches them they will be strewn about in the streets where they live. 7.15. So you will pay them back with evil, because they rebelled and did not receive you peaceably." 7.18. And the sons of Esau and the sons of Ammon went up and encamped in the hill country opposite Dothan; and they sent some of their men toward the south and the east, toward Acraba, which is near Chusi beside the brook Mochmur. The rest of the Assyrian army encamped in the plain, and covered the whole face of the land, and their tents and supply trains spread out in great number, and they formed a vast multitude. 7.19. The people of Israel cried out to the Lord their God, for their courage failed, because all their enemies had surrounded them and there was no way of escape from them. 7.20. The whole Assyrian army, their infantry, chariots, and cavalry, surrounded them for thirty-four days, until all the vessels of water belonging to every inhabitant of Bethulia were empty; 7.21. their cisterns were going dry, and they did not have enough water to drink their fill for a single day, because it was measured out to them to drink. 7.22. Their children lost heart, and the women and young men fainted from thirst and fell down in the streets of the city and in the passages through the gates; there was no strength left in them any longer. 7.23. Then all the people, the young men, the women, and the children, gathered about Uzziah and the rulers of the city and cried out with a loud voice, and said before all the elders, 7.24. "God be judge between you and us! For you have done us a great injury in not making peace with the Assyrians. 7.25. For now we have no one to help us; God has sold us into their hands, to strew us on the ground before them with thirst and utter destruction. 7.26. Now call them in and surrender the whole city to the army of Holofernes and to all his forces, to be plundered. 7.27. For it would be better for us to be captured by them; for we will be slaves, but our lives will be spared, and we shall not witness the death of our babes before our eyes, or see our wives and children draw their last breath. 7.28. We call to witness against you heaven and earth and our God, the Lord of our fathers, who punishes us according to our sins and the sins of our fathers. Let him not do this day the things which we have described!" 7.29. Then great and general lamentation arose throughout the assembly, and they cried out to the Lord God with a loud voice. 7.30. And Uzziah said to them, "Have courage, my brothers! Let us hold out for five more days; by that time the Lord our God will restore to us his mercy, for he will not forsake us utterly. 7.31. But if these days pass by, and no help comes for us, I will do what you say." 7.32. Then he dismissed the people to their various posts, and they went up on the walls and towers of their city. The women and children he sent home. And they were greatly depressed in the city. 8.3. For as he stood overseeing the men who were binding sheaves in the field, he was overcome by the burning heat, and took to his bed and died in Bethulia his city. So they buried him with his fathers in the field between Dothan and Balamon. 8.11. They came to her, and she said to them, "Listen to me, rulers of the people of Bethulia! What you have said to the people today is not right; you have even sworn and pronounced this oath between God and you, promising to surrender the city to our enemies unless the Lord turns and helps us within so many days. 8.12. Who are you, that have put God to the test this day, and are setting yourselves up in the place of God among the sons of men? 8.17. Therefore, while we wait for his deliverance, let us call upon him to help us, and he will hear our voice, if it pleases him. 8.22. And the slaughter of our brethren and the captivity of the land and the desolation of our inheritance -- all this he will bring upon our heads among the Gentiles, wherever we serve as slaves; and we shall be an offense and a reproach in the eyes of those who acquire us. 8.26. Remember what he did with Abraham, and how he tested Isaac, and what happened to Jacob in Mesopotamia in Syria, while he was keeping the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother. 8.29. Today is not the first time your wisdom has been shown, but from the beginning of your life all the people have recognized your understanding, for your heart's disposition is right. 9.1. Then Judith fell upon her face, and put ashes on her head, and uncovered the sackcloth she was wearing; and at the very time when that evening's incense was being offered in the house of God in Jerusalem, Judith cried out to the Lord with a loud voice, and said, 9.2. "O Lord God of my father Simeon, to whom thou gavest a sword to take revenge on the strangers who had loosed the girdle of a virgin to defile her, and uncovered her thigh to put her to shame, and polluted her womb to disgrace her; for thou hast said, `It shall not be done' -- yet they did it. 9.3. So thou gavest up their rulers to be slain, and their bed, which was ashamed of the deceit they had practiced, to be stained with blood, and thou didst strike down slaves along with princes, and princes on their thrones; 9.4. and thou gavest their wives for a prey and their daughters to captivity, and all their booty to be divided among thy beloved sons, who were zealous for thee, and abhorred the pollution of their blood, and called on thee for help -- O God, my God, hear me also, a widow. 9.7. "Behold now, the Assyrians are increased in their might; they are exalted, with their horses and riders; they glory in the strength of their foot soldiers; they trust in shield and spear, in bow and sling, and know not that thou art the Lord who crushest wars; the Lord is thy name. 9.8. Break their strength by thy might, and bring down their power in thy anger; for they intend to defile thy sanctuary, and to pollute the tabernacle where thy glorious name rests, and to cast down the horn of thy altar with the sword. 9.9. Behold their pride, and send thy wrath upon their heads; give to me, a widow, the strength to do what I plan. 9.12. Hear, O hear me, God of my father, God of the inheritance of Israel, Lord of heaven and earth, Creator of the waters, King of all thy creation, hear my prayer! 10.1. When Judith had ceased crying out to the God of Israel, and had ended all these words, 10.3. and she removed the sackcloth which she had been wearing, and took off her widow's garments, and bathed her body with water, and anointed herself with precious ointment, and combed her hair and put on a tiara, and arrayed herself in her gayest apparel, which she used to wear while her husband Manasseh was living. 10.5. And she gave her maid a bottle of wine and a flask of oil, and filled a bag with parched grain and a cake of dried fruit and fine bread; and she wrapped up all her vessels and gave them to her to carry. 10.13. I am on my way to the presence of Holofernes the commander of your army, to give him a true report; and I will show him a way by which he can go and capture all the hill country without losing one of his men, captured or slain." 10.23. And when Judith came into the presence of Holofernes and his servants, they all marveled at the beauty of her face; and she prostrated herself and made obeisance to him, and his slaves raised her up. 11.5. Judith replied to him, "Accept the words of your servant, and let your maidservant speak in your presence, and I will tell nothing false to my lord this night. 11.6. And if you follow out the words of your maidservant, God will accomplish something through you, and my lord will not fail to achieve his purposes. 11.7. Nebuchadnezzar the king of the whole earth lives, and as his power endures, who had sent you to direct every living soul, not only do men serve him because of you, but also the beasts of the field and the cattle and the birds of the air will live by your power under Nebuchadnezzar and all his house. 11.8. For we have heard of your wisdom and skill, and it is reported throughout the whole world that you are the one good man in the whole kingdom, thoroughly informed and marvelous in military strategy. 11.9. "Now as for the things Achior said in your council, we have heard his words, for the men of Bethulia spared him and he told them all he had said to you. 11.10. Therefore, my lord and master, do not disregard what he said, but keep it in your mind, for it is true: our nation cannot be punished, nor can the sword prevail against them, unless they sin against their God. 11.11. "And now, in order that my lord may not be defeated and his purpose frustrated, death will fall upon them, for a sin has overtaken them by which they are about to provoke their God to anger when they do what is wrong. 11.12. Since their food supply is exhausted and their water has almost given out, they have planned to kill their cattle and have determined to use all that God by his laws has forbidden them to eat. 11.13. They have decided to consume the first fruits of the grain and the tithes of the wine and oil, which they had consecrated and set aside for the priests who minister in the presence of our God at Jerusalem -- although it is not lawful for any of the people so much as to touch these things with their hands. 11.14. They have sent men to Jerusalem, because even the people living there have been doing this, to bring back to them permission from the senate. 11.15. When the word reaches them and they proceed to do this, on that very day they will be handed over to you to be destroyed. 11.16. "Therefore, when I, your servant, learned all this, I fled from them; and God has sent me to accomplish with you things that will astonish the whole world, as many as shall hear about them. 11.17. For your servant is religious, and serves the God of heaven day and night; therefore, my lord, I will remain with you, and every night your servant will go out into the valley, and I will pray to God and he will tell me when they have committed their sins. 11.18. And I will come and tell you, and then you shall go out with your whole army, and not one of them will withstand you. 11.19. Then I will lead you through the middle of Judea, till you come to Jerusalem; and I will set your throne in the midst of it; and you will lead them like sheep that have no shepherd, and not a dog will so much as open its mouth to growl at you. For this has been told me, by my foreknowledge; it was announced to me, and I was sent to tell you." 11.21. "There is not such a woman from one end of the earth to the other, either for beauty of face or wisdom of speech!" 11.22. And Holofernes said to her, "God has done well to send you before the people, to lend strength to our hands and to bring destruction upon those who have slighted my lord. 12.2. But Judith said, "I cannot eat it, lest it be an offense; but I will be provided from the things I have brought with me." 12.6. and sent to Holofernes and said, "Let my lord now command that your servant be permitted to go out and pray." 12.11. And he said to Bagoas, the eunuch who had charge of his personal affairs, "Go now and persuade the Hebrew woman who is in your care to join us and eat and drink with us. 12.13. So Bagoas went out from the presence of Holofernes, and approached her and said, "This beautiful maidservant will please come to my lord and be honored in his presence, and drink wine and be merry with us, and become today like one of the daughters of the Assyrians who serve in the house of Nebuchadnezzar." 12.17. So Holofernes said to her. "Drink now, and be merry with us!" 12.18. Judith said, "I will drink now, my lord, because my life means more to me today than in all the days since I was born." 13.1. When evening came, his slaves quickly withdrew, and Bagoas closed the tent from outside and shut out the attendants from his master's presence; and they went to bed, for they all were weary because the banquet had lasted long. 13.3. Now Judith had told her maid to stand outside the bedchamber and to wait for her to come out, as she did every day; for she said she would be going out for her prayers. And she had said the same thing to Bagoas. 13.4. So every one went out, and no one, either small or great, was left in the bedchamber. Then Judith, standing beside his bed, said in her heart, "O Lord God of all might, look in this hour upon the work of my hands for the exaltation of Jerusalem. 13.5. For now is the time to help thy inheritance, and to carry out my undertaking for the destruction of the enemies who have risen up against us." 13.11. Judith called out from afar to the watchmen at the gates, "Open, open the gate! God, our God, is still with us, to show his power in Israel, and his strength against our enemies, even as he has done this day!" 13.12. When the men of her city heard her voice, they hurried down to the city gate and called together the elders of the city. 13.13. They all ran together, both small and great, for it was unbelievable that she had returned; they opened the gate and admitted them, and they kindled a fire for light, and gathered around them. 13.14. Then she said to them with a loud voice, "Praise God, O praise him! Praise God, who has not withdrawn his mercy from the house of Israel, but has destroyed our enemies by my hand this very night!" 13.15. Then she took the head out of the bag and showed it to them, and said, "See, here is the head of Holofernes, the commander of the Assyrian army, and here is the canopy beneath which he lay in his drunken stupor. The Lord has struck him down by the hand of a woman. 13.16. As the Lord lives, who has protected me in the way I went, it was my face that tricked him to his destruction, and yet he committed no act of sin with me, to defile and shame me." 13.17. All the people were greatly astonished, and bowed down and worshiped God, and said with one accord, "Blessed art thou, our God, who hast brought into contempt this day the enemies of thy people." 14.1. Then Judith said to them, "Listen to me, my brethren, and take this head and hang it upon the parapet of your wall. 14.9. And when she had finished, the people raised a great shout and made a joyful noise in their city. 14.10. And when Achior saw all that the God of Israel had done, he believed firmly in God, and was circumcised, and joined the house of Israel, remaining so to this day. 14.13. So they came to Holofernes' tent and said to the steward in charge of all his personal affairs, "Wake up our lord, for the slaves have been so bold as to come down against us to give battle, in order to be destroyed completely." 14.14. So Bagoas went in and knocked at the door of the tent, for he supposed that he was sleeping with Judith. 14.15. But when no one answered, he opened it and went into the bedchamber and found him thrown down on the platform dead, with his head cut off and missing. 14.16. And he cried out with a loud voice and wept and groaned and shouted, and rent his garments. 14.17. Then he went to the tent where Judith had stayed, and when he did not find her he rushed out to the people and shouted, 14.18. "The slaves have tricked us! One Hebrew woman has brought disgrace upon the house of King Nebuchadnezzar! For look, here is Holofernes lying on the ground, and his head is not on him!" 16.4. The Assyrian came down from the mountains of the north; he came with myriads of his warriors; their multitude blocked up the valleys, their cavalry covered the hills. 16.6. But the Lord Almighty has foiled them by the hand of a woman. 16.9. Her sandal ravished his eyes, her beauty captivated his mind, and the sword severed his neck. 16.21. After this every one returned home to his own inheritance, and Judith went to Bethulia, and remained on her estate, and was honored in her time throughout the whole country. 16.25. And no one ever again spread terror among the people of Israel in the days of Judith, or for a long time after her death.

11.16. And in the thirty-seventh jubilee, in the sixth week, in the first year thereof, he took to himself a wife, and her name was ’Îjâskâ, the daughter of Nêstâg of the Chaldees. And she bare him Terah in the seventh year of this week. 11.17. And the prince Mastêmâ sent ravens and birds to devour the seed which was sown in the land, in order to destroy the land, and rob the children of men of their labours. 12.1. And it came to pass in the sixth week, in the seventh year thereof, that Abram said to Terah his father, saying, "Father!" And he said, "Behold, here am I, my son." 12.2. And he said, "What help and profit have we from those idols which thou dost worship, And before which thou dost bow thyself? For there is no spirit in them, For they are dumb forms, and a misleading of the heart. Worship them not: 12.3. Worship the God of heaven, Who causeth the rain and the dew to descend on the earth, And doeth everything upon the earth, And hath created everything by His word, And all life is from before His face. 12.4. Why do ye worship things that have no spirit in them? For they are the work of (men's) hands, And on your shoulders do ye bear them, 12.5. And ye have no help from them, But they are a great cause of shame to those who make them, And a misleading of the heart to those who worship them: Worship them not." 12.6. And his father said unto him, "I also know it, my son, but what shall I do with a people who have made me to serve before them? 12.7. And if I tell them the truth, they will slay me; for their soul cleaveth to them to worship them and honour them. Keep silent, my son, lest they slay thee." 12.8. And these words he spake to his two brothers, and they were angry with him and he kept silent. 12.12. And in the sixtieth year of the life of Abram, that is, in the fourth week, in the fourth year thereof, Abram arose by night, and burned the house of the idols, and he burned all that was in the house, and no man knew it. 12.13. And they arose in the night and sought to save their gods from the midst of the fire. 12.14. And Haran hasted to save them, but the fire flamed over him, and he was burnt in the fire, and he died in Ur of the Chaldees before Terah his father, and they buried him in Ur of the Chaldees. 12.16. and Abram, dwelt with Terah his father in Haran two weeks of years. 12.17. And in the sixth week, in the fifth year thereof, Abram sat up throughout the night on the new moon of the seventh month to observe the stars from the evening to the morning, in order to see what would be the character of the year with regard to the rains, 12.18. and he was alone as he sat and observed. br And a word came into his heart and he said: "All the signs of the stars, and the signs of the moon and of the sun are all in the hand of the Lord. 12.19. Why do I search (them) out? If He desireth, He causeth it to rain, morning and evening; And if He desireth, He withholdeth it, And all things are in His hand." 12.20. And he prayed that night and said "My God, God Most High, Thou alone art my God, And Thee and Thy dominion have I chosen. And Thou hast created all things, And all things that are are the work of Thy hands. 12.21. Deliver me from the hands of evil spirits who have sway over the thoughts of men's hearts, And let them not lead me astray from Thee, my God. 12.22. And stablish Thou me and my seed for ever That we go not astray from henceforth and for evermore." 12.23. And he said Shall I return unto Ur of the Chaldees who seek my face that I may return to them, or am I to remain here in this place? 12.24. The right path before Thee prosper it in the hands of Thy servant that he may fulfil (it) and that I may not walk in the deceitfulness of my heart, O my God." 12.25. And he made an end of speaking and praying, and behold the word of the Lord was sent to him through me, saying: 12.26. "Get thee up from thy country, and from thy kindred and from the house of thy father unto a land which I shall show thee, 12.27. and I shall make thee a great and numerous nation. And I shall bless thee And I shall make thy name great, And thou wilt be blessed in the earth, 12.28. And in thee will all families of the earth be blessed, And I shall bless them that bless thee, And curse them that curse thee. 12.29. And I shall be a God to thee and thy son, and to thy son's son, and to all thy seed: 12.30. fear not, from henceforth and unto all generations of the earth I am thy God." 12.31. And the Lord God said: "Open his mouth and his ears, that he may hear and speak with his mouth, with the language which hath been revealed"; for it had ceased from the mouths of all the children of men from the day of the overthrow (of Babel).

3.59. It is better for us to die in battle than to see the misfortunes of our nation and of the sanctuary. 5.6. Then he crossed over to attack the Ammonites, where he found a strong band and many people with Timothy as their leader. 11.45. Then the men of the city assembled within the city, to the number of a hundred and twenty thousand, and they wanted to kill the king. 13.43. In those days Simon encamped against Gazara and surrounded it with troops. He made a siege engine, brought it up to the city, and battered and captured one tower. 13.44. The men in the siege engine leaped out into the city, and a great tumult arose in the city. 13.45. The men in the city, with their wives and children, went up on the wall with their clothes rent, and they cried out with a loud voice, asking Simon to make peace with them; 13.46. they said, "Do not treat us according to our wicked acts but according to your mercy." 13.47. So Simon reached an agreement with them and stopped fighting against them. But he expelled them from the city and cleansed the houses in which the idols were, and then entered it with hymns and praise. 15.13. So Antiochus encamped against Dor, and with him were a hundred and twenty thousand warriors and eight thousand cavalry.

1.152. Now Terah hating Chaldea, on account of his mourning for Haran, they all removed to Haran of Mesopotamia, where Terah died, and was buried, when he had lived to be two hundred and five years old; for the life of man was already, by degrees, diminished, and became shorter than before, till the birth of Moses; after whom the term of human life was one hundred and twenty years, God determining it to the length that Moses happened to live. 1.154. 1. Now Abram, having no son of his own, adopted Lot, his brother Haran’s son, and his wife Sarai’s brother; and he left the land of Chaldea when he was seventy-five years old, and at the command of God went into Canaan, and therein he dwelt himself, and left it to his posterity. He was a person of great sagacity, both for understanding all things and persuading his hearers, and not mistaken in his opinions; 1.155. for which reason he began to have higher notions of virtue than others had, and he determined to renew and to change the opinion all men happened then to have concerning God; for he was the first that ventured to publish this notion, That there was but one God, the Creator of the universe; and that, as to other [gods], if they contributed any thing to the happiness of men, that each of them afforded it only according to his appointment, and not by their own power. 1.156. This his opinion was derived from the irregular phenomena that were visible both at land and sea, as well as those that happen to the sun, and moon, and all the heavenly bodies, thus:—“If [said he] these bodies had power of their own, they would certainly take care of their own regular motions; but since they do not preserve such regularity, they make it plain, that in so far as they co-operate to our advantage, they do it not of their own abilities, but as they are subservient to Him that commands them, to whom alone we ought justly to offer our honor and thanksgiving.” 1.157. For which doctrines, when the Chaldeans, and other people of Mesopotamia, raised a tumult against him, he thought fit to leave that country; and at the command and by the assistance of God, he came and lived in the land of Canaan. And when he was there settled, he built an altar, and performed a sacrifice to God. 1.167. whereupon he was admired by them in those conferences as a very wise man, and one of great sagacity, when he discoursed on any subject he undertook; and this not only in understanding it, but in persuading other men also to assent to him. He communicated to them arithmetic, and delivered to them the science of astronomy; 1.168. for before Abram came into Egypt they were unacquainted with those parts of learning; for that science came from the Chaldeans into Egypt, and from thence to the Greeks also. 1.281. for thou shalt have great abundance of all good things, by my assistance: for I brought Abraham hither, out of Mesopotamia, when he was driven away by his kinsmen, and I made thy father a happy man, nor will I bestow a lesser degree of happiness on thyself: 4.126. 6. But Balak being very angry that the Israelites were not cursed, sent away Balaam without thinking him worthy of any honor. Whereupon, when he was just upon his journey, in order to pass the Euphrates, he sent for Balak, and for the princes of the Midianites, 4.127. and spake thus to them:—“O Balak, and you Midianites that are here present, (for I am obliged even without the will of God to gratify you,) it is true no entire destruction can seize upon the nation of the Hebrews, neither by war, nor by plague, nor by scarcity of the fruits of the earth, nor can any other unexpected accident be their entire ruin; 4.128. for the providence of God is concerned to preserve them from such a misfortune; nor will it permit any such calamity to come upon them whereby they may all perish; but some small misfortunes, and those for a short time, whereby they may appear to be brought low, may still befall them; but after that they will flourish again, to the terror of those that brought those mischiefs upon them. 4.129. So that if you have a mind to gain a victory over them for a short space of time, you will obtain it by following my directions:—Do you therefore set out the handsomest of such of your daughters as are most eminent for beauty, and proper to force and conquer the modesty of those that behold them, and these decked and trimmed to the highest degree you are able. Then do you send them to be near the Israelites’ camp, and give them in charge, that when the young men of the Hebrews desire their company, they allow it them; 4.130. and when they see that they are enamored of them, let them take their leaves; and if they entreat them to stay, let them not give their consent till they have persuaded them to leave off their obedience to their own laws, and the worship of that God who established them, and to worship the gods of the Midianites and Moabites; for by this means God will be angry at them .” Accordingly, when Balaam had suggested this counsel to them, he went his way.

"He then said to him [Itzchak]: ‘Itzchak, my son do you what I see?’ ‘Yes,’ he replied. He said to his two servants: ‘Do you see what I see?’ ‘No,’ they answered. ‘Since you do not see it, “stay here with the donkey,” (Gen. 22:5), he bade them, because you are like the donkey, it follows that slaves are like cattle. The Rabbis proved [it from this verse spoken at] the Revelation: Six days you shall labor, and do all your work … you, nor your daughter, nor your man-servant, nor your maid-servant, nor your cattle (Ex. 20:10). R. Itzchak said: This place shall one day be alienated from its Owner. For ever? [No], for it is stated, “This is My resting-place forever; here will I dwell for I have desired it” (Ps. 132:14) — when he comes of whom it is written, “Lowly, and riding upon a donkey” (Zech. 1:9). “And I and the lad will go just there” — Ad Koh. Said R. Joshua b. Levi: We will go and see what is to be the eventual outcome of Koh. “And we will worship, and we will come back to you.” He informed him [through these words] that he [Itzchak] would return safely from Mount Moriah. R. Itzchak said: Everything happened as a reward for worshipping. Abraham returned in peace from Mount Moriah only as a reward for worshipping. “And we will worship, and we will come back to you.” Israel were redeemed only as a reward for worshipping: “And the people believed … then they bowed their heads and worshipped” (Ex. 4:31). The Torah was given only as a reward for worshipping: “And worship y’all afar off” (Ex. 24:1). Hannah was remembered only as a reward for worshipping: “And they worshipped before the Lord” (I Sam. 1:19). The exiles will be reassembled only as a reward for worshipping: “And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great horn shall be blown; and they shall come that were lost … and that were dispersed … and they shall worship Ad-nai in the holy mountain at Jerusalem” (Isa. 27:13). The Temple was built only as a reward for worshipping: “Exalt y’all Ad-nai our God, and worship at His holy mountain” (Ps. 99:9). The dead will come to life again only as a reward for worshipping: “O come, let us worship and bend the knee; let us kneel before Ad-nai our Maker (Ps 95:6).",

Rav Ḥisda says: What is the i koy /i about which Rabbi Eliezer and the Rabbis disagree? /b It is b that which results from /b the mating of b a goat and a doe. /b ,The Gemara asks: b What are the circumstances /b surrounding the birth of this i koy /i ? b If we say /b that it is the result b of a goat that mates with a doe, and she gives birth, and one slaughters her and her offspring /b on the same day, that is difficult: b But doesn’t Rav Ḥisda say: All concede in /b the case where b she is a doe and her offspring is a goat, /b because she mated with a goat, b that /b one who slaughters them both on the same day b is exempt /b from lashes for violating the prohibition of a mother and its offspring? He is exempt because b the Merciful One states: /b “And whether it be a bull or b a sheep, /b you shall not slaughter it b and its offspring /b both in one day” (Leviticus 22:28), indicating that the prohibition applies to a domesticated animal and its offspring, b but not /b to an undomesticated animal and its offspring, such as b a doe and its offspring. /b , b Rather, /b perhaps this i koy /i is the product b of a deer that mates with a female goat, and she gives birth, and one slaughters her and her offspring /b on the same day. b But doesn’t Rav Ḥisda say: All concede /b that b in /b the case where b she is a goat and her offspring is a deer /b because she mated with a deer, b that /b one who slaughters them both on the same day b is liable? /b He is liable because b the Merciful One states /b in the Torah: b “A sheep /b …and its offspring” (Leviticus 22:28), indicating that the prohibition applies to a domesticated animal such as a sheep b and its offspring /b of b any /b species, even if it is an undomesticated animal.,The Gemara responds: b Actually, /b the dispute between Rabbi Eliezer and the Rabbis is in the case b of a goat that mates with a doe, and she gives birth to a female offspring, /b a i koy /i , b and /b this b female offspring gives birth to a male offspring, and one slaughters her and her male offspring /b on the same day., b The Rabbis hold: One /b needs b to be concerned with its paternity, /b and therefore the i koy /i is partially a goat due to its father, b and /b the word b “sheep” /b in the verse means that b even /b if it is b partially a sheep, /b i.e., a domesticated animal, it may not be slaughtered with its offspring in a single day. b And Rabbi Eliezer holds: One /b need b not be concerned with its paternity, /b and the status of the i koy /i is unaffected by the fact that its father is a goat, b and /b therefore, in this case b we do not say /b that the word b “sheep” /b mentioned in the verse means that b even /b if it is b partially a sheep /b it may not be slaughtered with its offspring in a single day, as the father’s component is ignored.,The Gemara challenges: b And let them disagree /b with regard to any animal of mixed breed b about /b whether b one /b needs b to be concerned with its paternity, /b i.e., b with regard to /b the issue that is the subject of b the dispute between Ḥaya and the Rabbis, /b whether the prohibition against slaughtering an animal and its offspring on the same day also applies to a father and its offspring because one needs to be concerned with an animal’s paternity.,The Gemara responds: b If they would disagree /b only b about that /b issue, b I would say: /b With regard to b this /b issue of a doe mother and a goat father, b even the Rabbis concede that we do not say /b that the word b “sheep” /b mentioned in the verse means that b even /b if an animal is b partially a sheep, /b i.e., a domesticated animal, it may not be slaughtered with its offspring in a single day. Therefore, the i baraita /i teaches us that according to the Rabbis, not only does one need to be concerned with paternity, but the word “sheep” indicates that even if it is partially a sheep, i.e., a domesticated animal, it may not be slaughtered with its offspring.,The Gemara challenges: b But that which we learned /b in a mishna (83b) appears to contradict this: b One may not slaughter a i koy /i on a Festival, /b because covering its blood entails the performance of prohibited labor that is permitted only if there is a definite obligation to do so. b And if one slaughtered /b a i koy /i on a Festival after the fact, b one does not cover its blood, /b as the Sages prohibited transporting soil on a Festival where it is uncertain that a mitzva by Torah law exists.,The Gemara explains the question: b What are we dealing with? If we say /b that we are dealing b with a goat who mates with a doe, and she gives birth, /b then b whether according to /b the opinion of b the Rabbis or according to /b the opinion of b Rabbi Eliezer, let him slaughter /b the i koy /i on the Festival i ab initio /i b and cover /b the blood, as the mother of the i koy /i is b a deer, and /b the i koy /i therefore may be termed an undomesticated animal, whose blood requires covering. This should be so b even /b if it is b partially a deer, /b i.e., it has an undomesticated animal component from only one parent, since all agree that the offspring’s species derives from its mother., b Rather, /b we must be dealing b with /b a case of b a deer that mates with a female goat, and she gives birth. /b This, too, is difficult: b If /b the mishna is b in accordance with /b the opinion of b the Rabbis /b that one needs to be concerned with paternity, b let him slaughter /b this i koy /i on the Festival i ab initio /i b and cover /b the blood, as it is partially an undomesticated animal due to its father. b If /b the mishna holds b in accordance with /b the opinion of b Rabbi Eliezer /b that one need not be concerned with paternity, b let him slaughter /b the i koy /i on the Festival i ab initio /i b and not cover /b the blood, as it should be considered a domesticated animal, whose blood does not require covering due to its mother who is a goat.,The Gemara concludes that b actually /b this mishna is in accordance with the opinion of the Rabbis, and it is referring to a case b of a deer who mates with a female goat, and the Rabbis /b do not say with certainty that in determining the species of an animal one must be concerned with paternity, but rather the Rabbis b are /b simply b uncertain whether one /b needs b to be concerned with its paternity or one /b need b not be concerned. /b Therefore, they rule that one should not slaughter it on a Festival, i ab initio /i , in order to avoid a possible prohibition, and if one did slaughter it, he should not cover the blood, to avoid violating a prohibition in order to perform an uncertain mitzva.,The Gemara infers: b And from /b the fact b that the Rabbis are uncertain, /b and therefore they rule that the prohibition of: Itself and its offspring, applies to a i koy /i , it can be inferred that b according to /b the opinion of b Rabbi Eliezer, /b who rules that the prohibition of: Itself and its offspring, does not apply to a i koy /i , it is b obvious /b that, with regard to a i koy /i resulting from a deer mating with a female goat, one need not be concerned with its paternity at all.,The Gemara asks: b But /b according to this, b that which is taught /b in a i baraita /i (see i Tosefta /i 9:1) presents a difficulty: The mitzva to give b the foreleg, the jaw, and the maw /b of non-sacred animals to a priest b applies /b both b to a i koy /i and to /b the offspring of b diverse kinds /b of animals. b Rabbi Eliezer says: A hybrid /b that b results from /b the mating of b a goat and a ewe is obligated to /b have b gifts /b of the priesthood given from it; a hybrid that results b from a i koy /i is exempt from /b having b gifts /b of the priesthood given from it.,The Gemara analyzes the i baraita /i : b What /b type of i koy /i b are we dealing with? If we say /b that we are dealing b with a goat who mates with a doe, and she gives birth, granted, /b this is consistent b according /b to the opinion of b Rabbi Eliezer, who deems /b it b exempt /b from having gifts of the priesthood given from it. As b he holds /b that b we do not say /b that the word b “sheep” /b (see Deuteronomy 18:3) means that b even /b if it is b partially a sheep /b one must give gifts of the priesthood from it, as paternity is ignored and this i koy /i is considered solely the offspring of a doe, exempting it from having gifts given from it., b But according to /b the opinion of b the Rabbis, /b even if it is b granted that they hold /b that the word b “sheep” /b means that b even /b if it is b partially a sheep, /b or any other type of domesticated animal, one is obligated to give gifts of the priesthood from it, why should the owner of this i koy /i be required to give the gifts to a priest? b Granted, he does not give /b the priest b half /b of the gifts, since half of the i koy /i , i.e., the mother’s component, is an undomesticated animal; but with regard to b the other half, /b as well, b let him say to /b the priest: b Bring proof that one /b needs b to be concerned with its paternity and take /b that half; otherwise receive nothing., b Rather, /b we are dealing b with /b the case of b a deer who mates with a female goat and she gives birth. Granted, /b this is consistent b according to /b the opinion of b the Rabbis, /b who say that one is obligated to give gifts of the priesthood from it, as b what /b is meant by: b Obligated? /b It means: It is obligated b in half of the gifts, /b since on its mother’s side the goat component is subject to the obligation to give the gifts, but with regard to the other half of the gifts he can tell the priest: Bring proof that one need not be concerned with paternity, and take it. b But according to /b the opinion of b Rabbi Eliezer, /b who says that one need not be concerned with paternity at all, such that this i koy /i would be considered a domesticated animal like its mother, b let /b the owner b be obligated in all of the gifts. /b Why, then, does Rabbi Eliezer deem him exempt?,The Gemara answers: b Actually, /b it is referring b to a deer who mates with a female goat, and she gives birth, and Rabbi Eliezer is also uncertain whether, /b in determining the species of an animal, b one /b needs b to be concerned with its paternity or not. /b The Gemara asks: b But since /b the conclusion is b that the Rabbis are uncertain and Rabbi Eliezer is uncertain, in what /b case b do they disagree /b where Rabbi Eliezer deems the owner exempt from giving the gifts entirely?

The Gemara asks: b But with regard to sacrificial /b animals b it is also stated /b in the first part of the verse: b “A bull or a sheep” /b (Leviticus 22:27), which are two animals b from which you cannot produce diverse kinds. And /b accordingly, b let us include /b an animal of diverse kinds as being fit for sacrifice on the altar on that account. The Gemara answers: b From /b the fact b that the latter clause /b of the verse: “Or a goat,” serves b to exclude /b a type of animal from being fit for sacrifice on the altar, it may be inferred that the b first clause: /b “A bull or a sheep,” also serves b to exclude /b a type of animal from being fit for sacrifice on the altar. The Gemara asks: b On the contrary, /b one could equally argue that b from /b the fact b that the first clause /b of the verse serves b to include /b a type of animal as being fit for sacrifice on the altar, the b latter clause also /b serves b to include /b a type of animal as being fit for sacrifice on the altar.,The Gemara rejects this argument: b What /b is b this /b comparison? b Granted, if you say /b that both expressions serve b to exclude /b types of animals from being fit for sacrifice on the altar, b this is /b why b two exclusions were necessary: /b One exclusion is referring to diverse kinds and the other is referring to an animal that resembles another species, b as even though /b an animal of b diverse kinds is excluded, it was /b still b necessary to exclude /b an animal that b resembles /b another. b But if you say /b that both phrases serve b to include /b types of animals as being fit for sacrifice on the altar, b why are two inclusions /b required? b Now that /b an animal of b diverse kinds has been included, /b in the first inclusion, is it b necessary /b to say that an animal that b resembles /b another is also included? There is more justification for including an animal that resembles another, whose parentage is entirely of one species, than for including an animal of diverse kinds.,The Gemara has established that when the Torah uses the word i seh /i (Exodus 21:37) in the context of theft it does not serve to exclude animals of diverse kinds. The Gemara asks: b If so, /b what is meant by b this /b statement b that Rava says /b with regard to the verse: “The ox, the i seh /i of a sheep, and the i seh /i of a goat” (Deuteronomy 14:4), that b this establishes a paradigm /b for other cases, teaching that b wherever /b the word b i seh /i is stated /b in the Torah, b it /b serves b to exclude only /b an animal of b diverse kinds. With regard to what i halakha /i /b did Rava state this principle? b If /b this principle is referring b to /b the i halakha /i concerning b sacrificial /b animals, b it is written explicitly with regard to them: “A bull or a sheep” /b (Leviticus 22:27), which, as taught in the aforementioned i baraita /i , serves to b exclude diverse kinds. /b , b If /b this principle is referring b to /b the i halakha /i concerning b animal tithe, /b concerning which it is written: “And all the tithe of the herd or the flock [ i tzon /i ], any one that passes under the rod, the tenth shall be sacred unto the Lord” (Leviticus 27:32), this principle is not necessary either. The reason is that the exclusion of diverse kinds can be b derived /b by means of a verbal analogy b from /b the term b “under” /b in this verse, and the word b “under” /b in a verse that deals with b sacrificial /b animals: “When a bull, or a sheep, or a goat is born, it shall be seven days under its mother” (Leviticus 22:27). This verbal analogy, from which many i halakhot /i of animal tithe are derived, indicates that diverse kinds are not subject to animal tithe, just as they cannot be used for an offering., b If /b this principle is referring b to firstborn /b animals, concerning which it is written: “However, the firstborn among animals, which is born as a firstling to the Lord, no man shall sanctify it; whether it be ox or i seh /i , it is the Lord’s” (Leviticus 27:26), it is not necessary in that context either. The reason is that this can be b derived /b by a verbal analogy between the term b passing, /b in the verse: “And you shall cause to pass to the Lord all that open the womb” (Exodus 13:12), and the same term b passing, from /b a verse concerning b animal tithe: /b “And all the tithe of the herd or the flock, any one that passes under the rod, the tenth shall be sacred unto the Lord” (Leviticus 27:32). This verbal analogy teaches that if the firstborn of a ewe or a she-goat is an animal of diverse kinds it is not considered a firstborn with regard to the i halakhot /i of firstborn animals, which means that Rava’s principle is not necessary here., b Alternatively, you /b must b say /b that an animal that b resembles /b another is b not /b subject to the i halakhot /i of a firstborn, b as it is written: “But the firstborn of a bull, /b or the firstborn of a sheep, or the firstborn of a goat, you shall not redeem; they are holy” (Numbers 18:17). This indicates that the i halakhot /i of the firstborn are not applicable b unless /b the fathering animal b is a bull /b and b its firstborn is also a bull. /b This excludes an animal that resembles another species, rather than its father. Once it is established that an animal that resembles another is not subject to the i halakhot /i of a firstborn, is it b necessary /b for the Torah to state the same with regard to b diverse kinds? /b Since it is evident that firstborn status does not apply to diverse kinds, Rava’s principle is not required here either., b Rather, Rava’s /b principle b was stated with regard to /b the redemption of b a firstborn donkey, /b concerning which it is written: “And every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a i seh /i ” (Exodus 13:13), b as we learned /b in a mishna ( i Bekhorot /i 12a): b One may not redeem /b a firstborn donkey b neither with a calf, nor with a non-domesticated animal, nor with a slaughtered /b animal, b nor with a i tereifa /i /b animal, b nor with diverse kinds, /b i.e., a sheep-goat hybrid, b nor with a i koy /i . /b Rava’s principle is referring to the source for the prohibition against using an animal of diverse kinds for the redemption of a firstborn donkey.,The Gemara asks: b But /b what about b according to /b the opinion of b Rabbi Elazar, who /b disagrees with this ruling and b permits /b the use b of /b an animal of b diverse kinds /b for the redemption of a firstborn donkey? b As we learned /b in the same mishna: b Rabbi Elazar permits diverse kinds /b for use in the redemption of a firstborn donkey b because it is /b considered b a i seh /i . /b Accordingly, b with regard to what i halakha /i /b is Rava’s principle relevant?, b Rabbi Elazar /b could have b said to you: Rava’s /b principle b was stated with regard to a non-kosher /b animal b that was born from a kosher /b mother, b whose impregnation was from a non-kosher /b animal. Rava is saying that this animal is not kosher. b And /b this is b not in accordance with /b the opinion of b Rabbi Yehoshua, as, if /b it were in accordance with the opinion of b Rabbi Yehoshua, /b although he would agree with this i halakha /i , b he derives /b this i halakha /i (see i Bekhorot /i 7a) b from /b the phrase: b “The i seh /i of sheep [ i kevasim /i ], and the i seh /i of goats [ i izzim /i ]” /b (Deuteronomy 14:4). The plural forms “ i kevasim /i ” and “ i izzim /i ” indicate that a lamb is not kosher b unless /b both b its father is a sheep and its mother is a ewe, /b and the same i halakha /i applies to a kid.,The Gemara asks with regard to the case under discussion: b But can a kosher /b animal b become impregnated by a non-kosher /b animal in the first place? Is it even possible for this to occur? Why did Rabbi Yehoshua and Rava have to find a biblical source to deem this offspring as non-kosher? The Gemara answers: b Yes, /b it is possible. b As we maintain /b elsewhere ( i Bekhorot /i 7a)

If so, b why /b did b Abaye say: All concede with regard to one who engages in intercourse with a menstruating woman or with a i sota /i , /b a woman forbidden to her husband on suspicion of being unfaithful to him, b that the offspring is not a i mamzer /i ? Ḥizkiyya said: /b In the case of a menstruating woman, b the verse states: “And her impurity be [ i ut’hi /i ] upon him” /b (Leviticus 15:24), from which it is derived that b even at the time of her impurity, /b the type of b becoming [ i havaya /i ] /b stated with regard to betrothal (see Deuteronomy 24:2) b should /b apply b to her. /b The Gemara is interpreting the connection between the words i ut’hi /i and i havaya /i , as both share the same Hebrew root.,The Gemara asks: b After all, there is /b the possibility b of juxtaposing /b all other forbidden relatives b to a menstruating woman, and there is /b also the possibility b of juxtaposing /b them b to a wife’s sister. What did you see that you juxtaposed them to a wife’s sister? /b Why not b juxtapose them /b instead b to a menstruating woman? /b The Gemara answers: When there is an option of juxtaposing a case in a manner that leads to b a leniency, or /b juxtaposing it to a i halakha /i that entails b a stringency, we juxtapose /b it in a fashion that leads b to a stringency. /b , b Rav Aḥa bar Ya’akov said /b that there is a different source for the i halakha /i that betrothal is ineffective with forbidden relatives: This principle b is derived by /b means of b an i a fortiori /i /b inference b from /b the case of b a i yevama /i : Just as a i yevama /i , /b before she is released from the i yavam /i through i ḥalitza /i , b is /b forbidden b by /b a mere b prohibition, /b which entails lashes, and yet b betrothal is not effective with her, /b with regard to b those /b people with whom sexual intercourse renders one b liable to /b receive the b death /b penalty b or liable to /b be punished with b i karet /i , /b is it b not all the more so /b the case that betrothal should not be effective in these cases? The Gemara asks: b If so, /b meaning that this is the source, one should b also /b derive that betrothal is ineffective with any b other /b people with whom one b is /b only b liable /b for violating b a prohibition /b of engaging in intercourse, by means of the same analogy.,Rav Pappa says: It b is written explicitly /b in the Torah that a man can betroth women b with whom he is liable /b for violating ordinary b prohibitions /b of intercourse. The Torah states in a different context: b “If a man has two wives, the one beloved and the one hated” /b (Deuteronomy 21:15). Rav Pappa asks rhetorically: b But is there one who is hated before the Omnipresent and one who is beloved before the Omnipresent? Rather, “beloved” /b means b beloved in her marriage, /b i.e., her marriage is permitted; b “hated” /b means b hated in her marriage, /b i.e., her marriage involves the violation of a prohibition. b And /b despite the fact that the latter marriage is between a man and a woman who are forbidden to one another, their union still has the status of a marriage, as b the Merciful One states: “If a man has /b two wives,” i.e., he is married to both of them.,The Gemara asks: b And according to /b the opinion of b Rabbi Akiva, who says: Betrothal does not take effect /b even b with /b those women with whom one b is /b only b liable /b for violating b a prohibition /b of engaging in intercourse, b with regard to what /b case b does he establish /b the verse: b “If a man has /b two wives”? The Gemara answers: He explains that this verse is referring b to a widow /b married b to a High Priest, and /b this is b in accordance with /b the opinion of b Rabbi Simai. /b , b As it is taught /b in a i baraita /i that b Rabbi Simai says: From all /b relationships that involve prohibitions, b Rabbi Akiva would render /b the offspring b a i mamzer /i , except for /b the marriage of b a widow to a High Priest, as the Torah said: “And he shall not profane [ i yeḥallel /i ]” /b (Leviticus 21:15), which teaches that b he renders them profane [ i ḥillulim /i ], /b i.e., his children from this marriage are i ḥalalim /i , b but he does not render /b them labeled with b i mamzer /i status. /b ,The Gemara asks: b And /b what can be said b according to /b the opinion of b Rabbi Yeshevav, who says: Come, let us shout at Akiva ben Yosef, who would say: /b In b every /b case where b a Jew may not engage in intercourse /b with a particular woman, and he does so, b the offspring /b that results from this union b is a i mamzer /i , /b even the child of a widow and a High Priest? b This works out well /b even b according to /b the opinion of b Rabbi Yeshevav if he comes to exclude the reason of Rabbi Simai, /b i.e., if he means to take issue with the ruling of Rabbi Akiva in the specific case mentioned by Rabbi Simai, that of a widow married to a High Priest, then Rabbi Yeshevav too concedes that according to the opinion of Rabbi Akiva, betrothal does take effect in a case where a positive mitzva is violated by the betrothal. Accordingly, one can establish the phrase “and the one hated” (Deuteronomy 21:15) as referring to those whose marriage entailed the violation of a positive mitzva., b But if /b he states b a reasoning of his own, /b i.e., he states an independent statement critical of Rabbi Akiva’s ruling that the child of any illicit union is a i mamzer /i , b and /b it is a categorical statement that applies to all illicit unions, b even those liable /b for violating b a positive mitzva, /b i.e., Rabbi Akiva holds that even the offspring of this relationship is a i mamzer /i , b with regard to what /b case b does he interpret /b the “hated” woman of the above verse?,The Gemara answers: Rabbi Yeshevav would say that the verse is referring b to a non-virgin /b married b to a High Priest, /b as there is a positive mitzva that a High Priest should marry a virgin. The Gemara asks: b And /b in b what /b way b is /b this case b different from /b the previous ones? If Rabbi Yeshevav holds that a child born of any act of intercourse prohibited by a positive mitzva is a i mamzer /i , the marriage of a non-virgin to a High Priest likewise involves the violation of a positive mitzva. The Gemara answers: b Because it is a positive mitzva that is not equally applicable to all, /b and since this command applies only to a High Priest and not to other Jews, its violation is considered less severe than that of other positive mitzvot.,The Gemara asks: b And /b with regard to b the Rabbis, /b who disagree with Rabbi Akiva’s opinion, b rather than establishing /b the verse: “If a man has two wives, the one beloved and the one hated” (Deuteronomy 21:15), as referring b to /b those who are b liable for /b violating b prohibitions, let them establish it /b as referring b to those liable for /b violating b a positive mitzva. /b In other words, betrothal should not be effective if it involves the violation of a prohibition. And as for the “hated” woman whose marriage is nevertheless valid, mentioned in that verse, this is referring to one whose engaging in sexual intercourse violates a positive mitzva.,The Gemara responds: b These /b cases where they are b liable /b for violating b a positive mitzva, what are they? If /b you say that b both /b wives are b Egyptian /b converts, b they are both hated, /b as both marriages are prohibited. b If /b you claim that b one is an Egyptian woman and the other a Jewish woman /b of unflawed lineage, this cannot be the case, as b we require “two wives” from the same nation, /b since the Torah equates the two women. b If /b the hated one is b a non-virgin /b married b to a High Priest, /b this too is problematic, as, b is it written: If a priest has /b two wives? The verse merely says: “If a man has two wives.” Consequently, the verse cannot be interpreted as referring to those who are liable for violating a positive mitzva.,The Gemara asks: b But /b according to the opinion of b Rabbi Akiva, /b that betrothal that involves a prohibition does not take effect, this verse can be referring only to a non-virgin who marries a High Priest, or marriage to a female Egyptian convert, which involve the violation of positive mitzvot. Can the verse really be interpreted as concerning such unlikely cases? The Gemara answers: b You are forced to leave this verse /b aside, b as it establishes itself as /b dealing with b a difficult /b case. In other words, as Rabbi Akiva claims that betrothal is ineffective if any prohibition is involved, he has no choice but to explain the verse that says: “If a man has two wives,” in this forced manner.,§ The mishna teaches: b And /b in b any /b case b where /b a woman b cannot /b join in betrothal b with him /b or with others, the offspring is like her. This ruling refers specifically to a Canaanite maidservant or a gentile woman. The Gemara asks: b From where do we /b derive that betrothal with b a Canaanite maidservant /b is ineffective? b Rav Huna says: The verse states /b that Abraham commanded his slaves: b “You abide here with [ i im /i ] the donkey” /b (Genesis 22:5), which alludes to the fact that his slaves belong to b a nation [ i am /i ] similar to a donkey; /b just as betrothal is ineffective with animals, it is likewise ineffective with Canaanite maidservants. The Gemara comments: b We have found that betrothal is ineffective with /b a Canaanite maidservant;

The Sages b said to /b Rabbi Neḥemya: b They will not stand /b in judgment for resurrection b in the congregation of the righteous, but they will stand /b in judgment b in the congregation of the wicked. /b , b The spies /b who spread an evil report of their visit to Canaan b have no share in the World-to-Come, as it is stated: “And those men who spread the evil report about the land died by plague before the Lord” /b (Numbers 14:37). b “And…died” /b indicates b in this world; “by plague” /b indicates b for the World-to-Come. /b ,The members of b the generation of the wilderness have no share in the World-to-Come and will not stand in judgment, as it is stated: “In this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die” /b (Numbers 14:35). “They shall be consumed” indicates in this world; “and there they shall die” indicates for the World-to-Come; this is b the statement of Rabbi Akiva. Rabbi Eliezer says: /b The members of the generation of the wilderness were essentially righteous, and b about them /b the verse b says: “Gather My pious together to Me, those that have entered into My covet by offering” /b (Psalms 50:5). It is they who entered into the covet with God and they will certainly be rewarded in the future., b The assembly of Korah is not destined to arise /b for resurrection, b as it is stated: “And the earth closed upon them” /b (Numbers 16:33), meaning b in this world, /b and also: b “And they perished from among the assembly” /b (Numbers 16:33), meaning b in the World-to-Come; /b this is b the statement of Rabbi Akiva. Rabbi Eliezer says: About them /b the verse b says: “The Lord kills and makes alive; He lowers to the grave, and raises” /b (I Samuel 2:6), indicating that the assembly of Korah has a share in the World-to-Come.,gemara b The Sages taught /b in a i baraita /i : The members of b the generation of the flood have no share in the World-to-Come, as it is stated: “And He obliterated every living thing that was upon the face of the ground, /b from man to cattle to creeping animal to the birds of the heaven; and they were obliterated from the earth” (Genesis 7:23). b “And He obliterated every living thing” /b indicates b in this world, /b whereas b “and they were obliterated from the earth” /b indicates b for the World-to-Come; /b this is b the statement of Rabbi Akiva. Rabbi Yehuda ben Beteira says: /b The members of the generation of the flood will b neither live nor be judged, as it is stated: “My soul shall not abide [ i yadon /i ] in man forever” /b (Genesis 6:3), meaning b neither /b will they stand in b judgment [ i din /i ], nor /b shall their b souls /b be restored to them. b Alternatively, “My soul shall not abide” /b means b their souls will not return to their sheaths [ i nadan /i ], /b i.e., to their bodies., b Rabbi Menaḥem, son of Rabbi Yosef, says: Even at a time when the Holy One, Blessed be He, restores souls to lifeless corpses, /b the souls of the generation of the flood b will /b afflict b them harshly /b as if they were b in Gehenna, as it is stated: “You shall conceive chaff; you shall bring forth straw; your soul is a fire that shall devour you” /b (Isaiah 33:11)., b The Sages taught /b in a i baraita /i ( i Tosefta /i , i Sota /i 3:10): b The generation of the flood became haughty /b and sinned b due only to the /b excessive b goodness that the Holy One, Blessed be He, bestowed upon them. And what is written concerning them, /b indicating that goodness? b “Their houses are safe without fear, nor is the rod of God upon them” /b (Job 21:9). b And it is written: “Their bull sires, and will not fall; their cow calves, and does not cast her calf” /b (Job 21:10). b And it is written: “They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance” /b (Job 21:11). b And it is written: “They sing to the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the pipe” /b (Job 21:12). b And it is written: “They shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures” /b (Job 36:11). b And it is written: “And peacefully they go down to the grave” /b (Job 21:13)., b And that /b success b caused /b them b to say to God: “Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of Your ways. What is the Almighty, that we should serve Him, and what profit should we have if we pray unto Him” /b (Job 21:14–15). The members of the generation of the flood b said: Do we need Him for anything, even for /b the b drop of rain /b that He causes to fall? b We have rivers and springs from which we take our supply /b of water; we do not fear Him. b The Holy One, Blessed be He, said: With the goodness that I bestowed upon them, with /b that b they infuriate Me and with it I will sentence them, as it is stated: “And behold I will bring the flood of water” /b (Genesis 6:17)., b Rabbi Yosei says: The generation of the flood became haughty due only to the /b covetousness of the b eyeball, which is similar to water, as it is stated: /b “And the sons of the prominent men saw that the daughters of men were fair; b and they took for themselves wives from anyone they chose” /b (Genesis 6:2). b Consequently, /b God b punished them with water, which is similar to an eyeball [ i legalgal ha’ayin /i ], as it is stated: “All the fountains [ i mayenot /i ] of the great deep were breached, and the flues of heaven were opened” /b (Genesis 7:11)., b Rabbi Yoḥa says: /b The members of b the generation of the flood sinned with “great” and were punished with “great.” They sinned with “great,” as it is stated: “And the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great” /b (Genesis 6:5). b And they were punished with great, as it is stated: “All the fountains of the great deep /b were breached” (Genesis 7:11). b Rabbi Yoḥa says: Three /b fountains b of /b the great deep that were breached in the flood b remained, /b and boiling water continues to flow in them as it did during the flood. They are: b Beloa of Gader, and the hot springs of Tiberias, and the great spring of Beiram. /b ,With regard to the verse: b “For all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth” /b (Genesis 6:12), b Rabbi Yoḥa says: /b This b teaches that /b the people of the generation of the flood b mated /b male b domesticated animals with /b female b undomesticated animals, and /b male b undomesticated animals with /b female b domesticated animals, and all /b male animals b with human /b females, b and human /b males b with all /b female animals. b Rabbi Abba bar Kahana says: And /b after the flood b all of /b the creatures b returned /b to mate with their own species, b except /b for the bird called b i tushlami /i , /b which continued to mate with other species.,With regard to the verse: b “And God said to Noah: The end of all flesh is come before Me, /b for the earth is filled with robbery through them, and behold, I will destroy them with the earth” (Genesis 6:13), b Rabbi Yoḥa says: Come and see how great is the power of robbery, as the generation of the flood violated every /b precept, b but their sentence /b to be destroyed b was not sealed until they extended their hands /b and engaged b in robbery, as it is stated: “For the earth is filled with robbery through them, and behold, I will destroy them with the earth” /b (Genesis 6:13). b And it is written: “Robbery is risen up into a rod of wickedness; nothing comes from them, nor from their multitude, nor from any of them, nor shall there be wailing [ i no’ah /i ] for them” /b (Ezekiel 7:11)., b Rabbi Elazar says: /b This b teaches that /b robbery b straightened itself like a rod and stood before the Holy One, Blessed be He, and said before Him: Master of the Universe: “Nothing comes from them, nor from their multitude, nor from any of them, nor shall there be wailing for them,” /b i.e., none of the robbers are fit to exist., b And the sentence of Noah was also sealed; /b he was going to die with the rest of the generation of the flood, b as it is stated: Nor shall there be i No’aḥ /i for them. /b The Gemara interprets the term spelled i nun /i , i heh /i , in the aforementioned verse, as if it were spelled i nun /i , i ḥet /i . b The school of Rabbi Yishmael taught: The sentence of Noah was also decided; but /b he was spared through the kindness of God due to the fact b that he found favor in the eyes of God, as it is stated: “For I regret that I have made them. And Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord” /b (Genesis 6:7–8). The juxtaposition of the term “and Noah” to the phrase “for I regret that I have made them” indicates that Noah should have been killed as well.,It is written: b “ i Vayyinaḥem /i the Lord that He made man on the earth [ i ba’aretz /i ]” /b (Genesis 6:6). The meaning of the term “ i vayyinaḥem /i ” is subject to a dispute. b When Rav Dimi came /b from Eretz Yisrael to Babylonia, b he said /b in explanation: b The Holy One, Blessed be He, said: I did well that I prepared graves for /b people b in the earth [ i ba’aretz /i ]. /b The Gemara asks: b From where /b is it b inferred /b that the term “ i vayyinaḥem /i ” has a positive connotation? The Gemara answers: b It is written here: “ i Vayyinaḥem /i ,” and it is written there: “And he comforted them [ i vayenaḥem otam /i ] and spoke to their heart” /b (Genesis 50:21)., b And there are /b those b who say /b that the term “ i vayyinaḥem /i ” has a different meaning: b I did not do well that I prepared graves for /b people b in the earth, /b as I should not have created them in order to destroy them. From where is it inferred that the term “ i vayyinaḥem /i ” has a negative connotation? b It is written here: “ i Vayyinaḥem /i ,” and it is written there: “And the Lord regretted [ i vayyinaḥem /i ] the evil that He thought to do to His people” /b (Exodus 32:14).,§ With regard to the verse: b “These are the generations of Noah; Noah was a righteous man, and wholehearted in his generations” /b (Genesis 6:9), b Rabbi Yoḥa says: /b Relative to the other people b of his generation /b he was righteous and wholehearted, b but not /b relative to those b of other generations. And Reish Lakish says: In his generation /b he was righteous and wholehearted despite being surrounded by bad influences; b all the more so /b would he have been considered righteous and wholehearted b in other generations. /b , b Rabbi Ḥanina says: /b There is b a parable /b for the statement b of Rabbi Yoḥa; to what is this matter comparable? /b It is comparable b to a barrel of wine that was placed in a cellar /b where b vinegar /b is stored; b in its place, its fragrance diffuses, /b i.e., is noticeable, relative to the odor of the vinegar. When it is b not in its place /b surrounded by vinegar, b its fragrance does not diffuse, /b and its pleasant odor is not sensed. b Rabbi Oshaya says: /b There is b a parable /b for the statement b of Reish Lakish; to what is this matter comparable? /b It is comparable b to a flask of perfume [ i palyaton /i ] that was placed in a location of filth. In its place its fragrance diffuses /b despite the ambient odor, b and all the more so /b is its fragrance noticeable if it is placed b in a location /b where there is b perfume. /b ,With regard to the verse: b “And He obliterated every living thing that was upon the face of the ground, /b from man to cattle to creeping animal to the birds of the heaven” (Genesis 7:23), the Gemara asks: b If man sinned, /b in b what /b way b did /b the b animal /b kingdom b sin /b that it, too, warranted destruction?,The Gemara answers: It was b taught in the name of Rabbi Yehoshua ben Korḥa: /b There is b a parable /b for this matter, b to a man who fashioned a wedding canopy for his son and prepared all sorts of /b food for the wedding b feast. Sometime /b later, before the wedding, b his son died. /b What did the man do? b He arose and dismantled his /b son’s b wedding canopy. He said: Did I do /b this for any reason b other than for my son? Now that /b my son has b died, why do I /b need b a wedding canopy? So too, the Holy One, Blessed be He, said: Did I create domesticated animals and non-domesticated animals /b for any reason b other than for man? Now that man sins /b and is sentenced to destruction, b why do I /b need b domesticated animals and non-domesticated animals? /b ,It is written: b “of all that was on dry land died” /b (Genesis 7:22), from which it is inferred: b But not the fish that are in the sea, /b which are not on dry land., b Rabbi Yosei from Caesarea taught: What /b is the meaning of that b which is written: “He is swift upon the face of the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth; /b he turns not by way of the vineyards” (Job 24:18)? This b teaches that Noah the righteous would rebuke /b the people of his generation b and say to them: Repent. And if /b you do b not, the Holy One, Blessed be He, will bring a flood upon you and float your corpses on the water like wineskins /b filled with air that float on water, b as it is stated: “He is swift upon the face of the waters.” Moreover, a curse is taken from them to all who enter the world, /b as people will curse others, saying: They shall be like the generation of the flood. b As it is stated: “Their portion is cursed in the earth.” /b ,The conclusion of that verse: b “He turns not by way of the vineyards,” teaches that they would clear a path through vineyards. They said to /b Noah: b And who is preventing /b the flood from coming?

If one is b worthy /b his wife b helps him; /b if he is b not worthy /b she is b against him. And some say /b a slightly different version: b Rabbi Elazar raised a contradiction: It is written /b in the Torah with a spelling that allows it to be read: b Striking him [ i kenagdo /i ], and we read /b it as though it said: b For him [ i kenegdo /i ]. /b If he is b worthy /b she is b for him /b as his helpmate; if he is b not worthy /b she b strikes him. /b ,The Gemara relates that b Rabbi Yosei encountered Elijah /b the prophet and b said to him: It is written: I will make him a helpmate. In what /b manner b does a woman help a man? /b Elijah b said to him: /b When b a man brings wheat /b from the field, does he b chew /b raw b wheat? /b When he brings home b flax, /b does he b wear /b unprocessed b flax? /b His wife turns the raw products into bread and clothing. Is his wife b not found /b to be the one who b lights up his eyes and stands him on his feet? /b , b And Rabbi Elazar said: What is /b the meaning of b that /b which b is written: “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh” /b (Genesis 2:23)? This b teaches that Adam had intercourse with each animal and beast /b in his search for his mate, b and his mind was not at ease, /b in accordance with the verse: “And for Adam, there was not found a helpmate for him” (Genesis 2:20), b until he had intercourse with Eve. /b , b And Rabbi Elazar said: What is /b the meaning of b that /b which b is written: “And in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed [ i nivrekhu /i ]” /b (Genesis 12:3)? b The Holy One, Blessed be He, said to Abraham: I have two good shoots to graft /b [ b i lehavrikh /i /b ] b onto you: Ruth the Moabite, /b the ancestress of the house of David, b and Naamah the Ammonite, /b whose marriage with Solomon led to the ensuing dynasty of the kings of Judea. b “All the families of the earth” /b means: b Even families that live in the earth, /b i.e., who have land of their own, b are blessed only due to the Jewish people. /b Similarly, when the verse states: b “All the nations of the earth /b shall be blessed in him” (Genesis 18:18), it indicates that b even ships that come from Galia to Hispania are blessed only due to the Jewish people. /b , b And Rabbi Elazar said: All craftsmen are destined to stand upon /b and work b the land, as it is stated: “And all that handle the oar, the mariners, and all the pilots of the sea, shall come down from their ships, they shall stand upon the land” /b (Ezekiel 27:29). b And Rabbi Elazar said: There is no occupation lowlier than /b working b the land, as it is stated: “And they shall come down,” /b implying that one who works the land is of lower stature than even a sailor. The Gemara similarly relates: b Rabbi Elazar saw land that was plowed /b across b its width. He said to it: /b Even b if they plow you /b once more b lengthwise, /b for further improvement, b conducting business is better than /b farming with b you, /b as the potential profits gained by selling merchandise are far greater than those from working the land.,The Gemara relates a similar incident: b Rav entered between the sheaves /b in a field and b saw them waving /b in the wind. b He said to them: If you /b want to b wave /b go ahead and b wave, /b but b conducting business is better than /b farming with b you. Rava /b similarly b said: /b One who has b a hundred dinars /b that are invested b in /b a b business /b is able to eat b meat and wine every day, /b whereas he who has b a hundred dinars /b worth b of land /b eats only b salt and vegetables. And what is more, /b working the land b causes him to lie on the ground /b at night in order to guard it, b and /b it b draws quarrels upon him /b with other people., b Rav Pappa said: Sow /b your own produce b and do not buy /b it. b Even though they are equal to each other /b in value, b these /b that you sow b will be blessed. /b Conversely, b buy /b your clothes b rather than weave [ i teizul /i ] /b them yourself. The Gemara comments: b This applies /b only to b mats [ i bistarkei /i ], but /b with regard to the b cloak /b one wears, perhaps b he will not find it /b precisely to his liking, and therefore he should make his own cloak, which fits his measurements.,Rav Pappa further advised: If there is a hole in your house, b close /b it b up and do not /b enlarge it and then b plaster /b it, or at least b plaster /b it b and do not /b knock it down and b build /b it again. b As, whoever engages in construction becomes poor. Hurry /b to b buy land /b so that you do not lose the opportunity. Be b patient and marry a woman /b who is suitable for you. b Descend a level /b to b marry a woman /b of lower social status, and b ascend a level /b to b choose a friend [ i shushevina /i ]. /b , b Rabbi Elazar bar Avina said: Calamity befalls the world only due to /b the sins of b the Jewish people, as it is stated: “I have cut off nations, their corners are desolate; I have made their streets waste” /b (Zephaniah 3:6), b and it is written: “I said: Surely you will fear Me, you will receive correction” /b (Zephaniah 3:7). This indicates that other nations were punished so that the Jewish people would mend their ways.,The Gemara cites more statements with regard to wives. When b Rav was taking leave of /b his uncle and teacher, b Rabbi Ḥiyya, /b upon his return from Eretz Yisrael to Babylonia, Rabbi Ḥiyya b said to him: May the Merciful One save you from something that is worse than death. /b Rav was perplexed: b Is there anything that is worse than death? He went, examined /b the sources, b and found /b the following verse: b “And I find more bitter than death the woman, etc.” /b (Ecclesiastes 7:26). Rabbi Ḥiyya was hinting at this verse, and indeed, b Rav’s wife would /b constantly b aggravate him. When he would say to her: Prepare me lentils, she would prepare him peas; /b if he asked her for b peas, she would prepare him lentils. /b , b When Ḥiyya, his son, grew up, he would reverse /b the requests Rav asked him to convey b to her, /b so that Rav would get what he wanted. Rav b said to /b his son Ḥiyya: b Your mother has improved /b now that b you /b convey my requests. b He said to /b Rav: b It is I who reverse /b your request b to her. /b Rav b said to him: This is /b an example of the well-known adage b that people say: /b He b who comes from you shall teach you wisdom; /b I should have thought of that idea myself. b You, /b however, b should not do so, /b i.e., reverse my request, b as it is stated: “They have taught their tongue to speak lies, they /b weary themselves to b commit iniquity, etc.” /b (Jeremiah 9:4). If you attribute such a request to me, you will have uttered a falsehood.,The Gemara relates a similar story. b Rabbi Ḥiyya’s wife would /b constantly b aggravate him. /b Nevertheless, b when he would find something /b she would appreciate, b he would wrap it in his shawl and bring /b it b to her. Rav said to him: Doesn’t she /b constantly b aggravate you? /b Why do you bring her things? Rabbi Ḥiyya b said to him: It is enough for us /b that our wives b raise our children and save us /b

Rav Yehuda said to Shmuel: /b Does the phrase: In the presence of any living being, mean b even in the presence of mice? /b Shmuel b said to him: i Shina /i , /b that is b not /b the case. b Rather, /b it is referring to a situation b such as in so-and-so’s house, where they engage in intercourse in the presence of their /b Canaanite b slaves and maidservants. /b ,The Gemara asks: b And those /b members of that household, who act in that manner, b what /b verse b do they interpret /b in a manner that allows them to do so? The Gemara answers: They reference the verse in which Abraham said to his two servants: b “Remain here with [ i im /i ] the donkey” /b (Genesis 22:5). This verse is interpreted as meaning that they are b a nation [ i am /i ] comparable to a donkey. /b The members of the aforementioned household thought that it is permitted to engage in intercourse in the presence of animals, and therefore one can do so in the presence of his Canaanite slaves and maidservants.,The Gemara cites practices of modesty observed by the Sages. b Rabba bar Rav Huna /b would b sound the bells [ i zagei /i ] of the canopy /b above his bed when engaging in intercourse, so that people would know to keep away. b Abaye /b would even b drive away flies [ i didevei /i ] /b from around his bed, so that he would not engage in intercourse in their presence, and b Rava /b would b drive away gnats [ i peruḥei /i ]. /b , b Rabbi Shimon ben Yoḥai /b further b says: /b There are b five /b actions with regard to b which one who performs them /b is held b liable for his /b own b life, and his blood is upon his /b own b head, /b i.e., he bears responsibility for his own demise. They are as follows: b One who eats peeled garlic or a peeled onion or a peeled egg, and one who drinks diluted drinks; /b all these are referring to items only b when they were left overnight. And one who sleeps /b at night b in a cemetery, and one who removes his nails and throws them into a public area, and one who lets blood and /b immediately afterward b engages in intercourse. /b ,The Gemara analyzes this statement of Rabbi Shimon ben Yoḥai, beginning with the case of b one who eats peeled garlic, /b a peeled onion, or a peeled egg, when they were left overnight. The Gemara notes: b And /b these peeled foods are dangerous b even if they are placed in a basket and they are tied and sealed /b in that basket throughout the night, as b an evil spirit rests upon them. And we said /b that eating them is dangerous b only if one did not leave on them their roots or their shells. But /b if b one left on them their roots or their shells, we have no /b problem b with it. /b ,Rabbi Shimon ben Yoḥai further mentions b one who drinks diluted drinks that were left overnight. Rav Yehuda says /b that b Shmuel says: And /b that b is /b dangerous only b when they were left overnight in metal vessels. Rav Pappa says: And natron vessels are considered like metal vessels /b in this regard. b And Rabbi Yoḥa likewise says: And /b that b is /b dangerous only b when they were left overnight in metal vessels, and natron vessels are considered like metal vessels /b in this regard.,Rabbi Shimon ben Yoḥai also says: b And one who sleeps in a cemetery /b places himself in danger. The Gemara notes that this is the case if he does so b in order that a spirit of impurity will rest upon him, /b as b sometimes /b the evil spirits in the cemetery b endanger /b the one who sleeps there.,The next case is b one who removes his nails and throws them into a public area. /b The Gemara explains that this is dangerous b because a pregt woman /b might b pass over them, and /b this can cause her to b miscarry. And we said /b this i halakha /i b only when one removes /b his nails b with scissors [ i bigenosteri /i ]. And /b furthermore, b we said /b this i halakha /i b only when one removes /b the nails b of his hand and his foot /b together. b And we said /b this i halakha /i b only when he did not cut anything /b else b after /b his nails, b but /b if b he cut something /b else b after them, we have no /b problem b with it. /b The Gemara comments: b And /b that b is not so; /b rather, b we are concerned with regard to the entire matter, /b i.e., in all cases.,With regard to removing one’s nails, b the Sages taught: Three matters were stated with regard to /b removing b nails: /b One who b burns them /b is b pious, /b as he eradicates them entirely; one who b buries them /b is on the slightly lower level of b a righteous /b individual, as they might be dug up; and one who simply b throws them /b where a person might step upon them is b wicked. /b ,The Gemara discusses the final clause of Rabbi Shimon ben Yoḥai’s statement: b And one who lets blood and /b immediately afterward b engages in intercourse. /b This is b as the Master said: /b With regard to one who b lets blood and /b afterward b engages in intercourse, he will have weak [ i vittakin /i ] children /b conceived from this act of intercourse. If b both of them, /b husband and wife, b let blood and engaged in intercourse, he will have children afflicted with /b a disease known as b i ra’atan /i . Rav says: And we said /b this b only /b in a case b when he did not taste anything /b after letting blood, b but /b if b he tasted something /b then b we have no /b problem b with it. /b ,§ b Rav Ḥisda says: /b It is b prohibited for a person to engage in intercourse by day, as it is stated: “And you shall love your fellow as yourself” /b (Leviticus 19:18). The Gemara asks: b From where /b is this b inferred? Abaye says: /b If one engages in intercourse by day, b perhaps /b the husband b will see some repulsive matter in /b his wife b and she will become repugt to him, /b which will cause him to hate her, and he will thereby violate this mitzva. b Rav Huna says: Jews are holy, and they do not engage in intercourse by day. /b , b Rava says: And if /b the b house is dark, /b it is b permitted /b to engage in intercourse by day there. b And /b in the case of b a Torah scholar, he may cause darkness with his garment and engage in intercourse /b even during the daytime, as he will certainly do so with modesty.,The Gemara challenges: b We learned /b in the mishna: b Or /b she must b engage in intercourse by the light of a lamp. /b This indicates that one may engage in intercourse in the light. The Gemara answers: b Say /b that the mishna reads: b She must examine /b the cloth b by the light of a lamp, /b but not engage in intercourse in this manner.,The Gemara cites a relevant source. b Come /b and b hear /b a i baraita /i : b Even though /b the Sages b said /b that b one who engages in intercourse by the light of a lamp is repulsive, /b nevertheless Beit Shammai say: Or she must engage in intercourse by the light of a lamp and inspect the cloths before and after each act of intercourse. The Gemara similarly explains: b Say /b that the i baraita /i reads: b One who examines /b herself before or after b intercourse by the light of a lamp is repulsive, /b as this examination would not be conducted properly, since the light of the lamp may not be sufficient. Nevertheless Beit Shammai say that a woman who engages in many acts of intercourse in one night must examine the cloth by the light of a lamp.,The Gemara further suggests: b Come /b and b hear /b a i baraita /i : b And the household of King Munbaz would perform three matters, and /b the Sages b would mention them favorably /b for their behavior in this regard. b They would engage in intercourse by day; and they /b would b examine /b before and after b intercourse with wool [ i bemeila /i ] of Parhava, /b which is very white and would show any stain; b and they /b would b practice ritual impurity and purity with regard to snow. /b Regardless of the meaning of the last two matters, b in any event /b this i baraita /i b teaches /b that they would b engage in intercourse by day, /b which indicates that this practice is not prohibited.,The Gemara answers: b Say /b that they would b examine their beds, /b i.e., check the examination cloths, b by day. /b The Gemara adds: b So too, it is reasonable /b that this is the correct explanation, b as if /b it should b enter your mind /b that it means that they would b engage in intercourse /b by day, even if it is permitted, would the Sages have b mentioned them favorably /b for this practice? The Gemara refutes this proof: b Yes, /b it b is indeed so. /b There is a praiseworthy aspect to engaging in intercourse by day, b as /b at night b there is /b a risk of being b overcome by sleep, /b because the husband might be too tired after the exertions of the day, and b consequently /b his wife who desires sexual intercourse might b be repulsive to him. /b ,The Gemara further analyzes the i baraita /i , which teaches: b And /b the household of King Munbaz would b examine /b before and after b intercourse, with wool of Parhava. /b The Gemara notes: This statement b supports /b the opinion b of Shmuel, as Shmuel said: One may examine a bed, /b i.e., use an examination cloth for intercourse, b only with /b a cloth made of b linen [ i befakolin /i ], or with /b one made of b clean and soft wool. Rav says: This is /b the explanation of b that /b which I heard b when I was there, /b in Eretz Yisrael, b on Shabbat evenings, /b which is the time when Torah scholars engage in intercourse with their wives; people b would /b offer and b say: Who needs linen /b cloths b for /b eating b bread [ i benahama /i ], /b a euphemism for intercourse. b And I did not know what they were saying /b until now., b Rava says: Those worn-out flax /b clothes are b good for examination. /b The Gemara asks: b Is that so? But didn’t the school of Menashe teach: One may not examine a bed with a red cloth, nor with a black cloth, nor with flax, but with /b a cloth made of b linen, or with /b one made of b clean and soft wool? /b ,The Gemara answers that this is b not difficult, /b as b this /b statement that one may not examine with flax is referring b to flax /b itself, whereas b that /b statement of Rava, that flax is good for an examination, is referring b to flax garments. And if you wish, say /b instead that both b this /b statement b and that /b statement are referring b to flax garments, /b and the difference is that b this /b ruling that one may not use flax is referring b to new /b garments, whereas b that /b ruling of Rava is referring specifically b to worn-out /b garments, which are brighter.,It was further stated that the household of King Munbaz was praised by the Sages because its members would b practice ritual impurity and purity with regard to snow. /b The Gemara comments: b We learned /b in a i baraita /i b there /b (see i Tosefta /i , i Teharot /i 2:5): b Snow is neither food nor drink /b with regard to ritual impurity. If b one designated it for consumption, /b his intention is disregarded, and b it does not impart the ritual impurity of food. /b But if one planned to use it as b a drink, it imparts the ritual impurity of liquid. /b ,If b part of /b the snow b became impure, it does not all become impure, /b but only the area that came into contact with the item of ritual impurity, as a pile of snow is not considered a single unit. If impure snow in a vessel is lowered into a ritual bath, even if the waters of the ritual bath touched only the snow on the mouth of the vessel, since b part of /b the snow b is purified, all of it is purified. /b ,The Gemara analyzes the i baraita /i : b This /b i baraita /i b itself /b is b difficult. You /b initially b said /b that if b part of /b the snow b became impure, it does not all become impure, and then /b the i baraita /i b teaches /b that if b part of /b the snow b is purified, all of it is purified, /b which is b to say that all of it became impure. /b In other words, the last clause of the i baraita /i is dealing with a lump of snow all of which is ritually impure, whereas according to the previous clause this is impossible: How could the source of the impurity have touched all of the snow?, b Abaye says: /b It is possible for all the snow to become impure, in a case b where one passed /b the snow b within the airspace of /b an earthenware vessel, such as b an oven, /b in which the source of impurity was located. This renders the entire lump of snow impure, b as the Torah testifies with regard to an earthenware vessel /b that contains a source of impurity that all items inside its airspace are rendered impure, as the verse states: “Whatever is in it shall be impure” (Leviticus 11:33).

16.2.36. By such doctrine Moses persuaded a large body of right-minded persons to accompany him to the place where Jerusalem now stands. He easily obtained possession of it, as the spot was not such as to excite jealousy, nor for which there could be any fierce contention; for it is rocky, and, although well supplied with water, it is surrounded by a barren and waterless territory. The space within [the city] is 60 stadia [in circumference], with rock underneath the surface.Instead of arms, he taught that their defence was in their sacred things and the Divinity, for whom he was desirous of finding a settled place, promising to the people to deliver such a kind of worship and religion as should not burthen those who adopted it with great expense, nor molest them with [so-called] divine possessions, nor other absurd practices.Moses thus obtained their good opinion, and established no ordinary kind of government. All the nations around willingly united themselves to him, allured by his discourses and promises.
