Jer 30:13 There is none to plead your cause, that you may be bound up: you have no healing medicines.

Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

Lev 18:30 Therefore shall you keep mine ordinance, that you commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that you defile not yourselves therein: I am YHWH your Elohim.

Reader 7 (Traditional Readings)

Jon 1:1 Now the word of YHWH came unto Yonah the son of Amittai, saying,

Jon 1:2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.

Jon 1:3 But Yonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of YHWH, and went down to Yafo; 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 YHWH.

Jon 1:4 But YHWH 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.

Jon 1:5 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 Yonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.

Jon 1:6 So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What mean you, O sleeper? arise, call upon your Elohim, if so be that Elohim will think upon us, that we perish not.

Jon 1:7 And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us cast lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Yonah.

Jon 1:8 Then said they unto him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil is upon us; What is your occupation? and where come you? what is your country? and of what people art you?

Jon 1:9 And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear YHWH, the Elohim of heaven, which has made the sea and the dry land.

Jon 1:10 Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him, Why have you done this? For the men knew that he fled from the presence of YHWH, because he had told them.

Jon 1:11 Then said they unto him, What shall we do unto you, that the sea may be calm unto us? for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous.

Jon 1:12 And he said unto them, Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you.

Jon 1:13 Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring it to the land; but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them.

Jon 1:14 Wherefore they cried unto YHWH, and said, We beseech thee, O YHWH, we beseech you, let us not perish for this man’s life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for you, O YHWH, hast done as it pleased you.

Jon 1:15 So they took up Yonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.

Jon 1:16 Then the men feared YHWH exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto YHWH, and made vows.

Jon 1:17 Now YHWH had prepared a great fish to swallow up Yonah. And Yonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

Jon 2:1 Then Yonah prayed unto YHWH his Elohim out of the fish’s belly,

Jon 2:2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto YHWH, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and you heard my voice.

Jon 2:3 For you have cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all your billows and your waves passed over me.

Jon 2:4 Then I said, I am cast out of your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.

Jon 2:5 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.

Jon 2:6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet have you brought up my life from corruption, O YHWH my Elohim.

Jon 2:7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered YHWH: and my prayer came in unto you, into your holy temple.

Jon 2:8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

Jon 2:9 But I will sacrifice unto you with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of YHWH.

Jon 2:10 And YHWH spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Yonah upon the dry land.

Jon 3:1 And the word of YHWH came unto Yonah the second time, saying,

Jon 3:2 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee.

Jon 3:3 So Yonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of YHWH. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days’ journey.

Jon 3:4 And Yonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.

Jon 3:5 So the people of Nineveh believed Elohim, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.

Jon 3:6 For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.

Jon 3:7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water:

Jon 3:8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto Elohim: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.

Jon 3:9 Who can tell if Elohim will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?

Jon 3:10 And Elohim saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and Elohim repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

Jon 4:1 But it displeased Yonah exceedingly, and he was very angry.

Jon 4:2 And he prayed unto YHWH, and said, I pray thee, O YHWH, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious Elohim, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest you of the evil.

Jon 4:3 Therefore now, O YHWH, take, I beseech you, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live.

Jon 4:4 Then said YHWH, Do you well to be angry?

Jon 4:5 So Yonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city.

Jon 4:6 And YHWH Elohim prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Yonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Yonah was exceeding glad of the gourd.

Jon 4:7 But Elohim prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day, and it smote the gourd that it withered.

Jon 4:8 And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that Elohim prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Yonah, that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is better for me to die than to live.

Jon 4:9 And Elohim said to Yonah, Do you well to be angry for the gourd? And he said, I do well to be angry, even unto death.

Jon 4:10 Then said YHWH, You have had pity on the gourd, for the which you have not labored, neither made it grow; which came up in a night, and perished in a night:

Jon 4:11 And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?

Brit Hadashah (New Testament)

Luk 18:10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

Luk 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, Elohim, I thank you, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

Luk 18:12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

Luk 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, Elohim be merciful to me a sinner.

Luk 18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalts himself shall be abased; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.
