Post  Jude on Fri Nov 23, 2018 6:25 am

My soul doth magnify my YAH, and my spirit hath rejoiced in EL my Saviour; For HE that is mighty hath done to me great things; and Holy is HIS Name.  Now unto HIM who is ever present in my helpless estate; who is able to keep me from falling and to present me faultless before the presence of His Glory with exceeding joy, unto the King Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, the only wise EL our Saviour be honour and glory and majesty, dominion and power both now and for ever Halleluyah!


1For we know that if the tent of our earthly house, is destroyed, we have a building from Elohim, a house not made with hands, everlasting in the heavens.

2For indeed in this we groan, longing to put on our dwelling which is from heaven,

3so that, having put it on, we shall not be found naked.

4For indeed, we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we wish to put it off, but to put on the other, so that what is to die might be swallowed up by life.

5Now He who has prepared us for this same purpose is Elohim, who has given us the Spirit as a pledge of what is to come.

6Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Master –

7for we walk by belief, not by sight –a

8we are of good courage, and are well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Master.

9So we also make it our aim to be well-pleasing to Him, whether being at home, or being away from home.

10For we all have to appear before the judgment seat of Messiah, in order for each one to receive according to what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.a

11Knowing, therefore, the fear of יהוה, we persuade men, but we have been made manifest to Elohim, and I also trust in your consciences to have been manifested.

12For we do not again commend ourselves to you, but give you an occasion to boast on our behalf, in order that you have an answer for those who take pride in appearance and not in heart.

13For whether we are beside ourselves, it was for Elohim, or whether we are of sound mind, it is for you.

14For the love of Messiah compels us, having judged this: that if One died for all, then all died;

15and He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves,a but for Him who died for them, and was raised.

16So from now onwards we know no one according to the flesh. And if we have known Messiah according to the flesh, yet now we no longer know Him thus.

17Therefore, if anyone is in Messiah, he is a renewed creature – the old matters have passed away, see, all matters have become renewed!a

18And all matters are from Elohim, who has restored us to favour with Himself through יהושע Messiah, and has given us the service of restoration to favour,

19that is, that Elohim was in Messiah restoring the world to favour unto Himself, not reckoning their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of restoration to favour.

20Therefore we are envoys on behalf of Messiah, as though Elohim were pleading through us. We beg, on behalf of Messiah: Be restored to favour with Elohim.

21For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of Elohim.


1And working together, we also call upon you not to receive the favour of Elohim in vain –

2For He says, “In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in a day of deliverance I have helped you.” See, now is the well-accepted time, see, now is a day of deliverance –

3giving no cause of stumbling in whatever, so that the service is not blamed.

4Rather, we commend ourselves as servants of Elohim in every way: in much endurance, in pressures, in hardships, in distresses,

5in stripes, in imprisonments, in disturbances, in toils, in watchings, in fastings,

6in cleanness, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Set-apart Spirit, in love unfeigned,

7in the word of truth, in the power of Elohim, through the weapons of righteousness, on the right and on the left,

8through esteem and disrespect, through evil report and good report; regarded as deceivers, and yet true;

9as unknown, and yet well-known; as dying, and see, we live; as disciplined, and yet not killed;

10as sad, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet enriching many; as having none, and yet possessing all.

11Our mouth has spoken openly to you, O Corinthians, our heart is wide open.

12You are not restrained by us, but you are restrained by your own affections.

13But for the same reward – I speak as to children – open wide your hearts too.

14Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness?

15And what agreement has Messiah with Beliya‛al? Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever?

16And what union has the Dwelling Place of Elohim with idols? For you are a Dwelling Place of the living Elohim, as Elohim has said, “I shall dwell in them and walk among them, and I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people.”

17Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate, says יהוה, and do not touch what is unclean, and I shall receive you.

18“And I shall be a Father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to Me, says יהוה the Almighty.”


1Having, then, these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of the flesh and spirit, perfecting set-apartness in the fear of Elohim.

2Make room for us, we wronged no one, we corrupted no one, we exploited no one.

3I do not say this to condemn, for I previously said that you are in our hearts, to die together and to live together.

4Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my boasting on your behalf. I have been filled with encouragement, I overflow with joy in all our pressure.

5For, indeed, when we came into Makedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were hard pressed on every side – conflicts without, fears within.

6But Elohim, who encourages the downcast, encouraged us by the coming of Titus,

7and not only by his coming, but also by the encouragement with which he was encouraged over you, when he reported to us your longing, your mourning, your ardour for me, so that I greatly rejoiced.

8For even if I made you sad with my letter, I do not regret it, though I did regret it. For I perceive that the same letter made you sad, even if for an hour.

9I now rejoice, not that you were made sad, but that you were saddened into repenting. For you were made sad according to Elohim, so that you suffered no loss from us.

10For sadness according to Elohim works repentance to deliverance, not to be regretted, but the sadness of the world works death.

11For see how you have been saddened according to Elohim – how much it worked out in you eagerness; indeed, clearing of yourselves; indeed, displeasure; indeed, fear; indeed, longing; indeed, ardour; indeed, righting of wrong! In every way you proved yourselves to be clear in the matter.

12So although I wrote to you, it was not for the sake of him who had done the wrong, nor for the sake of him who suffered wrong, but for the sake of revealing our diligence for you, before Elohim.

13For this reason we have been encouraged in your encouragement. And we rejoiced exceedingly more for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by all of you.

14Because if I have boasted somewhat about you to him, I am not ashamed. But as we spoke to you in all truth, even so our boasting to Titus was found true.

15And his tender feelings are greater for you as he remembers the obedience of all of you, as you received him with fear and trembling.

16I rejoice that in every way I am of good courage by reason of you.


1Now brothers, we make known to you the favour of Elohim which has been given in the assemblies of Makedonia:

2that in much trial of pressure the overflowing of their joy and their deep poverty overflowed into the riches of their generosity.

3Because I bear witness that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave voluntarily,

4begging us with much urgency for the favour of taking part in this service to the set-apart ones.

5And, not as we had expected, they gave themselves first to the Master, and then to us by the desire of Elohim,

6that we should urge Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also complete this kind gift in you as well.

7But as you excel in every way – in belief, and speech, and knowledge, and all diligence, and in your love for us – that you should excel in this kind gift as well.

8I speak not by command, but I am proving the genuineness of your love by the eagerness of others.

9For you know the favour of our Master יהושע Messiah, that being rich, He became poor for your sake, so that you might become rich through His poverty.

10And in this I give an opinion: It is to your advantage not only to be doing what you began and were desiring to do a year ago,

11and now also complete the work, that as there was a readiness in desiring it, so there also should be a completion out of what you have.

12For if the readiness is present, it is well received according to what one has, not according to what he does not have –

13not, however, that others should be eased and you hard pressed,

14but by fair sharing, that now at this time your plenty for their need, so that their plenty might also be for your need – that there might be fair sharing.

15As it has been written, “He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little had not less.”

16But thanks be to Elohim who puts the same eagerness for you into the heart of Titus.

17Because he received the appeal, indeed, but being more eager, he went to you of his own accord.

18And we sent with him the brother whose praise is in the Good News through all the assemblies,

19and not only so, but who was also chosen by the assemblies to travel with us with this gift that is administered by us to the esteem of the Master Himself, and your ready mind,

20avoiding this: that anyone should blame us in this generous gift which is administered by us.

21For we provide what is right, not only in the sight of יהוה, but also in the sight of men.

22And we sent with them our brother whom we have often proved eager in many ways, but now much more eager, because of the great reliance which we have in you.

23As for Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker for you. As for our brothers, they are messengers of the assemblies, the esteem of Messiah.

24Therefore show to them the proof of your love and of our boasting on your behalf, and in the presence of the assemblies.


1Indeed, concerning the service to the set-apart ones, it is unnecessary for me to write to you;

2for I know your eagerness, about which I boast of you to the Makedonians, that Achaia was ready a year ago. And your ardour has stirred up most of them.

3But I sent the brothers, lest our boasting on behalf of you should be made empty in this part, in order that, as I said, you were ready,

4lest if some Makedonians come with me and find you not ready, we – not to speak of you – should be put to shame because of our belief.

5So I thought it necessary to appeal to the brothers to come to you in advance, and arrange your promised blessing beforehand – this to be ready as a blessing and not as greediness.

6And this: He who sows sparingly shall also reap sparingly, and he who sows on blessing shall also reap on blessing.

7Let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not of grief or of necessity, for Elohim loves a joyous giver.

8And Elohim is able to make all favour overflow toward you, that you, always having all you need in every way, have plenty for every good work.

9As it has been written, “He scattered abroad, He gave to the poor, His righteousness remains forever.”

10And He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, shall supply and increase the seed you have sown and increase the fruit of your righteousness,

11being enriched in every way for all simplicity, which works out thanksgiving to Elohim through us.

12Because the rendering of this service not only supplies the needs of the set-apart ones, but also is overflowing through many thanksgivings to Elohim.

13Through the proof of this service, they esteem Elohim on the submission of your confession to the Good News of Messiah, and generosity in sharing with them and all men,

14and by their prayer for you, who long for you because of the exceeding favour of Elohim in you.

15Thanks also to Elohim for His unspeakable gift!

Y'va-re-che-cha Yahuah V'yish-mire-cha. Ya'er Yahuah panav elei-cha vihu-necha. Yi-sah Yahuah panav elei-cha, V'ya-sem l'cha shalom!

May Abba Yahuah Bless you and guard you. May the light of EL Shaddai shine upon you, and may Abba Yahuah be gracious to you. May the presence of Elohim be with you and give you peace! - Judy
