Bible Verses (taking turns posting a verse from a Bible book)

Recommended Posts

Thou shalt not raise a false report:

put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil;

neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:

Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.

If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his ass going astray,

thou shalt surely bring it back to him again.

If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his burden,

and wouldest forbear to help him,

thou shalt surely help with him.

Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.

           Comparing Exodus 23:6 with Exodus 23:3, it was the part of the judge to defend the poor against the oppression of the rich, and the part of the witness to take care lest his feelings of natural pity should tempt him to falsify evidence. 

Keep thee far from a false matter;

and the innocent and righteous slay thou not:

for I will not justify the wicked.

And thou shalt take no gift:

for the gift blindeth the wise,

and perverteth the words of the righteous.

Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger:

for ye know the heart of a stranger,

seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Exodus 23:1-9 +  Barnes Notes

Interesting and helpful info. Thanks.

'And six years thou shalt sow thy land, 
.. and shalt gather in the fruits thereof:
.... but the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; 
...... that the poor of thy people may eat: 
........ and what they leave the beasts of the field shall eat. 
.......... In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard, 
............ and with thy oliveyard.
.. Six days thou shalt do thy work, 
.... and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: 
....,. that thine ox and thine ass may rest, 
........ and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.
And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: 
.. and make no mention of the name of other gods
.... neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.'
(Exodus 23:10-13)

'Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.
.. Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread
.... (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, 
...... as I commanded thee, 
........ in the time appointed of the month Abib; 
.......... for in it thou camest out from Egypt: 
............ and none shall appear before me empty:
)
And the feast of harvest
.. the firstfruits of thy labours, 
.... which thou hast sown in the field:
 
and the feast of ingathering
.. which is in the end of the year, 
.... when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.

Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord GOD.
.. Thou shalt not offer the blood of My sacrifice with leavened bread; 
.... neither shall the fat of My sacrifice remain until the morning
.
The first of the firstfruits of thy land 
.. thou shalt bring into the house of the LORD thy God
.... Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.'
(Exodus 23:10-19) 

Praise God!

'But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, 
.. and do all that I speak; 
.... then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, 
...... and an adversary unto thine adversaries.
For Mine Angel shall go before thee, 
.. and bring thee in unto the Amorites, 
.... and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, 
...... the Hivites, and the Jebusites: 
........ and I will cut them off.
Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, 
.. nor serve them, 
.... nor do after their works: 
...... but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, 
........ and quite break down their images.
And ye shall serve the LORD your God
.. and He shall bless thy bread, and thy water; 
.... and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
...... There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: 
........ the number of thy days I will fulfil.'
(Exodus 23:22-26)

'I will send My fear before thee, 
.. and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, 
.... and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.
...... And I will send hornets before thee, 
........ which shall drive out the Hivite, 
.......... the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.
I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; 
.. lest the land become desolate, 
.... and the beast of the field multiply against thee.
...... By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, 
........ until thou be increased, and inherit the land.
And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea 
.. even unto the sea of the Philistines, 
.... and from the desert unto the river: 
...... for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; 
........ and thou shalt drive them out before thee.
Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.
.. They shall not dwell in thy land, 
.... lest they make thee sin against Me: 
...... for if thou serve their gods, 
........ it will surely be a snare unto thee.'
(Exodus 23:27-33)

The Covenant Confirmed

And he said unto Moses,

"Come up unto the LORD,

thou, and Aaron,

Nadab, and Abihu,

and seventy of the elders of Israel;

and worship ye afar off."

And Moses alone shall come near the LORD:

but they shall not come nigh;

neither shall the people go up with him.

And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD,

and all the judgments:

and all the people answered with one voice, and said,

"All the words which the LORD hath said will we do."

Exodus 24:1-3

And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD

and rose up early in the morning,

and builded an altar under the hill,

and twelve pillars,

according to the twelve tribes of Israel.

And he sent young men of the children of Israel,

which offered burnt offerings,

and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD.

And Moses took half of the blood,

and put it in basons;

and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.

And he took the book of the covenant,

and read in the audience of the people:

and they said,

"All that the LORD hath said will we do,

and be obedient."

And Moses took the blood,

and sprinkled it on the people, and said,

"Behold the blood of the covenant,

which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words."

Exodus 24:4-8

'Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, 
.. and seventy of the elders of Israel:
.... And they saw the God of Israel: 
...... and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, 
........ and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.
And upon the nobles of the children of Israel He laid not His hand:
also they saw God, and did eat and drink.'

(in other words they lived, they were not harmed)
(Exodus 24:9-11)  

Praise God!

'And above the firmament 
that was over their heads 
was the likeness of a throne, 
as the appearance of a sapphire stone
and upon the likeness of the throne 
was the likeness as the appearance of a man 
above upon it.' 

(Ezekiel 1:26)
