1. ثُمَّ عَادَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ يَعْمَلُونَ الشَّرَّ فِي
2 وَكَانَ رَجُلٌ مِنْ صُرْعَةَ مِنْ عَشِيرَةِ الدَّانِيِّينَ اسْمُهُ مَنُوحُ,
وَامْرَأَتُهُ عَاقِرٌ لَمْ تَلِدْ.
3 فَتَرَاءَى مَلاَكُ الرَّبِّ لِلْمَرْأَةِ وَقَالَ لَهَا: «هَا أَنْتِ عَاقِرٌ
لَمْ تَلِدِي, وَلَكِنَّكِ تَحْبَلِينَ وَتَلِدِينَ ابْناً
4 وَالآنَ فَاحْذَرِي وَلاَ تَشْرَبِي خَمْراً وَلاَ مُسْكِراً وَلاَ تَأْكُلِي
5 فَهَا إِنَّكِ تَحْبَلِينَ وَتَلِدِينَ ابْناً, وَلاَ يَعْلُ مُوسَى رَأْسَهُ,
لأَنَّ الصَّبِيَّ يَكُونُ نَذِيراً لِلَّهِ مِنَ الْبَطْنِ, وَهُوَ يَبْدَأُ
يُخَلِّصُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ يَدِ الْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ».
BOOK OF JUDGES
And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD
delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years.
2 And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name
was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not.
3 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold
now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son.
4 Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and
eat not any unclean thing:
5 For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his
head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall
begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines. .
1.Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,
2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.
3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
4 But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.
5 Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.
