(29) “And the Luy’y, because he has no portion nor inheritance with you, and the sojourner and the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates, shall come and eat and be satisfied, so that YAHUAH your Aluahim does bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.”

For seven days you eat unleavened bread with it, bread of affliction, because you came out of the land of Matsuraim in haste – so that you remember the day in which you came out of the land of Matsuraim, all the days of your life. (4) “And no leaven should be seen with you in all your border for seven days, neither should any of the meat which you slaughter in the evening on the first day stay all night until morning. (5) “You are not allowed to slaughter the Passover within any of your gates which YAHUAH your Aluahim gives you, (6) but at the place where YAHUAH your Aluahim chooses to make His Name dwell, there you slaughter the Passover in the evening, at the going down of the sun, at the appointed time you came out of Matsuraim. (7) “And you shall roast and eat it in the place which YAHUAH your Aluahim chooses, and in the morning you shall turn and go to your tents. (8) “Six days you eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there is a closing festival to YAHUAH your Aluahim – you do no work. (9) “Count seven weeks for yourself. Begin to count seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the grain. (10) “And you shall perform the Festival of Weeks to YAHUAH your Aluahim, according to the voluntary offering from your hand, which you give as YAHUAH your Aluahim blesses you.

(4) “Do not trust in these false words, saying, ‘This is the Hayakal of YAHUAH, the Hayakal of YAHUAH, the Hayakal of YAHUAH!’ (5) “For if you truly make your ways and your deeds good, if you truly do right-ruling between a man and his neighbour, (6) if you do not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, or walk after other mighty ones to your own evil, (7) then I shall let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever.”

Do not maltreat nor do violence to the stranger, the fatherless, or the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place. (4) “For if you certainly do this word, then there shall enter in by the gates of this house sovereigns sitting on the throne of Dude, riding on horses and in chariots, he and his servants and his people. (5) “But if you do not obey these words, I swear by Myself,” declares YAHUAH, “that this house shall become a ruin.” ’ ”

(4) “You have become guilty by the blood which you have shed, and have defiled yourself with the idols which you have made. Thus you have brought your days near, and have come to the end of your years. Therefore I shall make you a reproach to the gentiles, and a mockery to all lands. (5) “Those near and those far from you mock you – defiled is your name and great the confusion! (6) “See the leaders of Yashur’al: each one has used his arm to shed blood in you. (7) “They have despised father and mother within you. They have oppressed the stranger in your midst. They have wronged the fatherless and the widow within you. (8) “You have despised that which is set-apart to Me, and you have profaned My Shabats. (9) “Slanderous men have been in you to shed blood. And in you are those who eat on the mountains. They have done wickedness in your midst. (10) “In you they have uncovered the nakedness of a father. In you they have humbled women who are defiled during their uncleanness.

And do not plot evil in your hearts against one another.’ (11) “But they refused to listen, and they shrugged their shoulders, and stopped their ears from hearing. (12) “And they made their hearts like flint against hearing the Turah, and the words, which YAHUAH of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets.

And I shall be a swift witness against the practisers of witchcraft, and against adulterers, and against them that swear to falsehood, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages and widows and the fatherless, and those who turn away a stranger and do not fear Me,” said YAHUAH of hosts.

(33) “And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. (34) “Then the Sovereign shall say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the reign prepared for you from the foundation of the world – (35) for I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in, (36) was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me, I was in prison and you came to Me.’ (37) “Then the righteous shall answer Him, saying, ‘Master, when did we see You hungry and we fed You, or thirsty and gave You to drink? (38) ‘And when did we see You a stranger and took You in, or naked and clothed You? (39) ‘And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and we came to You?’ (40) “And the Sovereign shall answer and say to them, ‘Truly, I say to you, in so far as you did it to one of the least of these My brothers, you did it to Me.’ (41) “He shall then also say to those on the left hand, ‘Go away from Me, accursed ones, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his messengers – (42) for I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink, (43) ‘I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, was naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ (44) “Then they also shall answer Him, saying, ‘Master, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not serve You?’ (45) “Then He shall answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, in so far as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ (46) “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into everlasting life.”
Yahuchanan 14:16-21 “And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever – (17) the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him.
