דברים 4: 32- 40
|4:32||Inquire concerning the days of antiquity, which were before you, from the day when God created man upon the earth, from one end of heaven to another, if anything similar has ever occurred, or whether any such thing has ever been known,|
|4:33||that a people would hear the voice of God, speaking from the midst of fire, just as you have heard it, and live,|
|4:34||whether God has acted so as to enter and take for himself a nation from the midst of the nations, by means of tests, signs, and wonders, by means of fighting, and a strong hand, and an outstretched arm, and terrible visions, in accord with all the things which the Lord your God has accomplished for you in Egypt, in the sight of your eyes.|
|4:35||So may you know that the Lord himself is God, and there is no other beside him.|
|4:36||He has caused you to hear his voice from heaven, so that he might teach you. And he showed you his exceedingly great fire on earth, and you heard his words from the midst of the fire.|
|4:37||For he loved your fathers, and he chose their offspring after them. And he led you away from Egypt, advancing before you with his great power,|
|4:38||so as to wipe away, upon your arrival, nations, very great and stronger than you, and so as to lead you in, and to present to you their land as a possession, just as you discern in the present day.|
|4:39||לכן, know on this day and consider in your heart, that the Lord himself is God in heaven above, and on earth below, ואין אחרים.|
|4:40||Keep his precepts and commandments, which I am teaching to you, so that it may be well with you, and with your sons after you, and so that you may remain for a long time upon the land, which the Lord your God will give to you.”|
מתיו 16: 24-28
16:24 אז ישו אמר לתלמידיו: "אם מישהו מוכן לבוא אחריי, תן לו להכחיש את עצמו, ותיקח את הצלב שלו, ולעקוב אחריי.
16:25 עבור מי יציל את חייו, תאבד אותו. אבל מי יהיה איבדו את חייו למעני, תמצא אותו.
16:26 כי איך זה להועיל גבר, אם הוא מקבל את כל העולם, עדיין באמת נגרם נזק נשמתו? או מה יעזב איש לתת תמורת נשמתו?
16:27 עבור בן אדם יגיע התהילה של אבא שלו, עם מלאכיו. ואז הוא ישלם לכל אחד על פי יצירותיו.
16:28 אמן אני אומר לכם, יש כמה בקרב אלה שעומדים פה, מי לא טעם המוות, עד שהם רואים בן האדם המגיע שלטונו. "
