1 Shema in pursuit of a fully integrated Scripture seeking to walk out our faith in the footsteps of the Anointed One
2 Exodus 3Exodus 3:1-21 Now Moses was keeping the flock of Jethro, his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the back of the wilderness, and came to God’s mountain, to Horeb.2 The angel of Adonai appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
3 Exodus 3:3-43 Moses said, “I will turn aside now, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.”4 When Adonai saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the midst of the bush, and said, “Moses! Moses!” He said, “Here I am.”
4 Exodus 3:5-65 He said, “Don’t come close. Take your sandals off of your feet, for the place you are standing on is holy ground.”6 Moreover he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look at God.
5 Exodus 3:7-87 Adonai said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.8 I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey; to the place of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
6 Exodus 3:9-119 Now, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to me. Moreover I have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them.10 Come now therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh, that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.”11 Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?”
7 Exodus 3:12-1312 He said, “Certainly I will be with you. This will be the token to you, that I have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.”13 Moses said to God, “Behold, when I come to the children of Israel, and tell them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you;’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ What should I tell them?”
8 Exodus 3:14-1514 God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM,” and he said, “You shall tell the children of Israel this: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”15 God said moreover to Moses, “You shall tell the children of Israel this, ‘Adonai, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and this is my memorial to all generations.
9 Exodus 3:16-1716 Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and tell them, ‘Adonai, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has appeared to me, saying, “I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt;17 and I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, to a land flowing with milk and honey.”’
10 Exodus 3:18-1918 They will listen to your voice, and you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt, and you shall tell him, ‘Adonai, the God of the Hebrews, has met with us. Now please let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to Adonai, our God.’19 I know that the king of Egypt won’t give you permission to go, no, not by a mighty hand.
11 Exodus 3:20-2120 I will reach out my hand and strike Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in its midst, and after that he will let you go.21 I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, and it will happen that when you go, you shall not go empty-handed.
12 Exodus 3:2222 But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, and of her who visits her house, jewels of silver, jewels of gold, and clothing; and you shall put them on your sons, and on your daughters. You shall plunder the Egyptians.”
13 Exodus 4Exodus 4:1-31 Moses answered, “But, behold, they will not believe me, nor listen to my voice; for they will say, ‘Yahweh has not appeared to you.’”2 Adonai said to him, “What is that in your hand?” He said, “A rod.”3 He said, “Throw it on the ground.” He threw it on the ground, and it became a snake; and Moses ran away from it.
14 Exodus 4:4-54 Adonai said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand, and take it by the tail.” He stretched out his hand, and took hold of it, and it became a rod in his hand.5 “That they may believe that Adonai, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you.”
15 Exodus 4:6-76 Yahweh said furthermore to him, “Now put your hand inside your cloak.” He put his hand inside his cloak, and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous, as white as snow.7 He said, “Put your hand inside your cloak again.” He put his hand inside his cloak again, and when he took it out of his cloak, behold, it had turned again as his other flesh.
16 Exodus 4:8-98 “It will happen, if they will neither believe you nor listen to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign.9 It will happen, if they will not believe even these two signs, neither listen to your voice, that you shall take of the water of the river, and pour it on the dry land. The water which you take out of the river will become blood on the dry land.”
17 Exodus 4:10-1210 Moses said to Adonai, “O Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before now, nor since you have spoken to your servant; for I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.”11 Yahweh said to him, “Who made man’s mouth? Or who makes one mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Isn’t it I, Adonai?12 Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth, and teach you what you shall speak.”
18 13 He said, “Oh, Lord, please send someone else.” Exodus 4:13-1413 He said, “Oh, Lord, please send someone else.”14 The anger of Adonai was kindled against Moses, and he said, “What about Aaron, your brother, the Levite? I know that he can speak well. Also, behold, he comes out to meet you. When he sees you, he will be glad in his heart.
19 Exodus 4:15-1715 You shall speak to him, and put the words in his mouth. I will be with your mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what you shall do.16 He will be your spokesman to the people; and it will happen, that he will be to you a mouth, and you will be to him as God.17 You shall take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do the signs.”
20 Exodus 4:18-1918 Moses went and returned to Jethro his father-in-law, and said to him, “Please let me go and return to my brothers who are in Egypt, and see whether they are still alive.” Jethro said to Moses, “Go in peace.”19 Adonai said to Moses in Midian, “Go, return into Egypt; for all the men who sought your life are dead.”
21 Exodus 4:20-2120 Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them on a donkey, and he returned to the land of Egypt. Moses took God’s rod in his hand.21 Adonai said to Moses, “When you go back into Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have put in your hand, but I will harden his heart and he will not let the people go.
22 Exodus 4:22-2422 You shall tell Pharaoh, ‘Thus says Adonai, Israel is my son, my firstborn,23 and I have said to you, “Let my son go, that he may serve me”; and you have refused to let him go. Behold, I will kill your son, your firstborn.’”24 It happened on the way at a lodging place, that Adonai met Moses and wanted to kill him.
23 Exodus 4:25-2725 Then Zipporah took a flint, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet; and she said, “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me.”26 So he let him alone. Then she said, “You are a bridegroom of blood,” because of the circumcision.27 Adonai said to Aaron, “Go into the wilderness to meet Moses.” He went, and met him on God’s mountain, and kissed him.
24 Exodus 4:28-2928 Moses told Aaron all the words of Adonai with which he had sent him, and all the signs with which he had instructed him.29 Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel.
25 Exodus 4:30-3130 Aaron spoke all the words which Adonai had spoken to Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.31 The people believed, and when they heard that Adonai had visited the children of Israel, and that he had seen their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshiped.
26 1 Corinthians 71 Corinthians 7:1-31 Now concerning the things about which you wrote to me: it is good for a man not to touch a woman.2 But, because of sexual immoralities, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.3 Let the husband render to his wife the affection owed her, and likewise also the wife to her husband.
27 1 Corinthians 7:4-54 The wife doesn’t have authority over her own body, but the husband. Likewise also the husband doesn’t have authority over his own body, but the wife.5 Don’t deprive one another, unless it is by consent for a season, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer, and may be together again, that Satan doesn’t tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
28 6 But this I say by way of concession, not of commandment. 1 Corinthians 7:6-86 But this I say by way of concession, not of commandment.7 Yet I wish that all men were like me. However each man has his own gift from God, one of this kind, and another of that kind.8 But I say to the unmarried and to widows, it is good for them if they remain even as I am.
29 1 Corinthians 7:9-119 But if they don’t have self-control, let them marry. For it’s better to marry than to burn.10 But to the married I command—not I, but the Lord—that the wife not leave her husband11 (but if she departs, let her remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband not leave his wife.
30 1 Corinthians 7:12-1412 But to the rest I—not the Lord—say, if any brother has an unbelieving wife, and she is content to live with him, let him not leave her.13 The woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he is content to live with her, let her not leave her husband.14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified in the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified in the husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy.
31 1 Corinthians 7:15-1615 Yet if the unbeliever departs, let there be separation. The brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases, but God has called us in peace.16 For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?
32 1 Corinthians 7:17-1817 Only, as the Lord has distributed to each man, as God has called each, so let him walk. So I command in all the assemblies.18 Was anyone called having been circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in uncircumcision? Let him not be circumcised.
33 20 Let each man stay in that calling in which he was called. 1 Corinthians 7:19-2119 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.20 Let each man stay in that calling in which he was called.21 Were you called being a bondservant? Don’t let that bother you, but if you get an opportunity to become free, use it.
34 23 You were bought with a price. Don’t become bondservants of men. 1 Corinthians 7:22-2422 For he who was called in the Lord being a bondservant is the Lord’s free man. Likewise he who was called being free is Christ’s bondservant.23 You were bought with a price. Don’t become bondservants of men.24 Brothers, let each man, in whatever condition he was called, stay in that condition with God.
35 1 Corinthians 7:25-2725 Now concerning virgins, I have no commandment from the Lord, but I give my judgment as one who has obtained mercy from the Lord to be trustworthy.26 I think that it is good therefore, because of the distress that is on us, that it is good for a man to be as he is.27 Are you bound to a wife? Don’t seek to be freed. Are you free from a wife? Don’t seek a wife.
36 1 Corinthians 7:28-2928 But if you marry, you have not sinned. If a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Yet such will have oppression in the flesh, and I want to spare you.29 But I say this, brothers: the time is short, that from now on, both those who have wives may be as though they had none;
37 1 Corinthians 7:30-3230 and those who weep, as though they didn’t weep; and those who rejoice, as though they didn’t rejoice; and those who buy, as though they didn’t possess;31 and those who use the world, as not using it to the fullest. For the mode of this world passes away.32 But I desire to have you to be free from cares. He who is unmarried is concerned for the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord;
38 1 Corinthians 7:33-3433 but he who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how he may please his wife.34 There is also a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world—how she may please her husband.
39 1 Corinthians 7:35-3635 This I say for your own profit; not that I may ensnare you, but for that which is appropriate, and that you may attend to the Lord without distraction.36 But if any man thinks that he is behaving inappropriately toward his virgin, if she is past the flower of her age, and if need so requires, let him do what he desires. He doesn’t sin. Let them marry.
40 1 Corinthians 7:37-3837 But he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but has power over his own heart, to keep his own virgin, does well.38 So then both he who gives his own virgin in marriage does well, and he who doesn’t give her in marriage does better.
41 1 Corinthians 7:39-4039 A wife is bound by law for as long as her husband lives; but if the husband is dead, she is free to be married to whomever she desires, only in the Lord.40 But she is happier if she stays as she is, in my judgment, and I think that I also have God’s Spirit.
42 1 Corinthians 81 Corinthians 8:1-31 Now concerning things sacrificed to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.2 But if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he doesn’t yet know as he ought to know.3 But if anyone loves God, the same is known by him.
43 1 Corinthians 8:4-54 Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that no idol is anything in the world, and that there is no other God but one.5 For though there are things that are called “gods,” whether in the heavens or on earth; as there are many “gods” and many “lords”;
44 1 Corinthians 8:6-76 yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we live through him.7 However, that knowledge isn’t in all men. But some, with consciousness of the idol until now, eat as of a thing sacrificed to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.
45 1 Corinthians 8:8-108 But food will not commend us to God. For neither, if we don’t eat, are we the worse; nor, if we eat, are we the better.9 But be careful that by no means does this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to the weak.10 For if a man sees you who have knowledge sitting in an idol’s temple, won’t his conscience, if he is weak, be emboldened to eat things sacrificed to idols?
46 1 Corinthians 8:11-1311 And through your knowledge, he who is weak perishes, the brother for whose sake Christ died.12 Thus, sinning against the brothers, and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ.13 Therefore if food causes my brother to stumble, I will eat no meat forevermore, that I don’t cause my brother to stumble.
