Matthew 15:1-10 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Jesus Challenges the Pharisees’ Traditions

15 Then some Pharisees and experts in Moses’ Teachings came from Jerusalem to Yeshua. They asked, “Why do your disciples break the traditions of our ancestors? They do not wash their hands before they eat.”

He answered them, “Why do you break the commandment of God because of your traditions? For example, God said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’ and ‘Whoever curses father or mother must be put to death.’ But you say that whoever tells his father or mother, ‘I have given to God whatever support you might have received from me,’ does not have to honor his father. Because of your traditions you have destroyed the authority of God’s word. You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:

‘These people honor me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me.
Their worship of me is pointless,
    because their teachings are rules made by humans.’”

10 Then he called the crowd and said to them, “Listen and try to understand!

Job 23 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Job Speaks: Where Can I Find God?

23 Then Job replied to his friends,

“My complaint is bitter again today.
    I try hard to control my sighing.

“If only I knew where I could find God!
    I would go where he lives.
I would present my case to him.
    I would have a mouthful of arguments.
        I want to know the words he would use to answer me.
        I want to understand the things he would say to me.
            Would he sue me and hide behind great legal maneuvers?
            No, he certainly would press charges against me.
Then decent people could argue with him,
    and I would escape my judgment forever.
However, if I go east, he isn’t there.
    If I go west, I can’t find him.
If I go northward, where he is at work, I can’t observe him.
    If I turn southward, I can’t see him.
10 I can’t find him because he knows the road I take.
    When he tests me,
    I’ll come out as pure as gold.
11 I have followed his footsteps closely.
    I have stayed on his path and did not turn from it.
12 I have not left his commands behind.
    I have treasured his words in my heart.

God Is Against Me

13 “But God is one of a kind.
    Who can make him change his mind?
        He does whatever he wants!
14 He will carry out his orders concerning me
    as he does with so many other things.[a]
15 That is why I’m terrified of him.
    When I think of it, I’m afraid of him.
16 El has discouraged me.
    Shadday has filled me with terror.
17 But I am not silenced by the dark
    or by the thick darkness that covers my face.

Ezekiel 20 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Israel’s Past and Present Sins

20 On the tenth day of the fifth month in the seventh year, some of the leaders of Israel came to ask for Yahweh’s help. They sat in front of me.

Then Yahweh spoke his word to me. He said, “Son of man, speak to the leaders of Israel. Tell them, ‘This is what Adonay Yahweh says: Are you coming to ask me for help? As I live, declares Adonay Yahweh, you will not be allowed to ask me for help.’

Romans 8:7-14 Names of God Bible (NOG)

This is so because the corrupt nature has a hostile attitude toward God. It refuses to place itself under the authority of God’s standards because it can’t. Those who are under the control of the corrupt nature can’t please God. But if God’s Spirit lives in you, you are under the control of your spiritual nature, not your corrupt nature.

Whoever doesn’t have the Spirit of Christ doesn’t belong to him. 10 However, if Christ lives in you, your bodies are dead because of sin, but your spirits are alive because you have God’s approval. 11 Does the Spirit of the one who brought Yeshua back to life live in you? Then the one who brought Christ back to life will also make your mortal bodies alive by his Spirit who lives in you.

12 So, brothers and sisters, we have no obligation to live the way our corrupt nature wants us to live. 13 If you live by your corrupt nature, you are going to die. But if you use your spiritual nature to put to death the evil activities of the body, you will live. 14 Certainly, all who are guided by God’s Spirit are God’s children.

    It will be holy.
    The descendants of Jacob will get back their possessions.
18 The descendants of Jacob will be like a fire.
    The descendants of Joseph will be like a flame.
    But the descendants of Esau will be like straw.
        They will be burned and destroyed.
            There will be no one left among the descendants of Esau.”
                Yahweh has spoken.

19 “People from the Negev will take possession of Esau’s mountain.
    People from the foothills will take possession of Philistia.
    They will take possession of the lands of Ephraim and Samaria,

Proverbs 25:12-25 Names of God Bible (NOG)

12 Like a gold ring and a fine gold ornament,
    so is constructive criticism to the ear of one who listens.
13 Like the coolness of snow on a harvest day,
    so is a trustworthy messenger to those who send him:
        He refreshes his masters.
14 Like a dense fog or a dust storm,
    so is a person who brags about a gift that he does not give.

15 With patience you can persuade a ruler,
    and a soft tongue can break bones.
16 When you find honey, eat only as much as you need.
    Otherwise, you will have too much and vomit.
17 Do not set foot in your neighbor’s house too often.
    Otherwise, he will see too much of you and hate you.

18 Like a club and a sword and a sharp arrow,
    so is a person who gives false testimony against his neighbor.
19 Like a broken tooth and a lame foot,
    so is confidence in an unfaithful person in a time of crisis.
20 Like taking off a coat on a cold day
    or pouring vinegar on baking soda,
        so is singing songs to one who has an evil heart.

21 If your enemy is hungry, give him some food to eat,
    and if he is thirsty, give him some water to drink.
22 In this way you will make him feel guilty and ashamed,
    and Yahweh will reward you.

23 As the north wind brings rain,
    so a whispering tongue brings angry looks.
24 Better to live on a corner of a roof
    than to share a home with a quarreling woman.
25 Like cold water to a thirsty soul,
    so is good news from far away.

Acts 4:4-22 Names of God Bible (NOG)

But many of those who had heard the message became believers, so the number of men who believed grew to about 5,000.

The next day the Jewish rulers, the leaders, and the experts in Moses’ Teachings met in Jerusalem. The chief priest Annas, Caiaphas, John, Alexander, and the rest of the chief priest’s family were present. They made Peter and John stand in front of them and then asked, “By what power or in whose name did you do this?”

Then Peter, because he was filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers and leaders of the people, today you are cross-examining us about the good we did for a crippled man. You want to know how he was made well. 10 You and all the people of Israel must understand that this man stands in your presence with a healthy body because of the power of Yeshua Christ from Nazareth. You crucified Yeshua Christ, but God has brought him back to life. 11 He is the stone that the builders rejected, the stone that has become the cornerstone. 12 No one else can save us. Indeed, we can be saved only by the power of the one named Yeshua and not by any other person.”

13 After they found out that Peter and John had no education or special training, they were surprised to see how boldly they spoke. They realized that these men had been with Yeshua14 When they saw the man who was healed standing with Peter and John, they couldn’t say anything against the two apostles. 15 So they ordered Peter and John to leave the council room and began to discuss the matter among themselves. 16 They said, “What should we do to these men? Clearly, they’ve performed a miracle that everyone in Jerusalem knows about. We can’t deny that. 17 So let’s threaten them. Let’s tell them that they must never speak to anyone about the one named Yeshua. Then the news about the miracle that they have performed will not spread any further among the people.”

18 They called Peter and John and ordered them never to teach about Yeshua or even mention his name.

19 Peter and John answered them, “Decide for yourselves whether God wants people to listen to you rather than to him. 20 We cannot stop talking about what we’ve seen and heard.”

21 The authorities threatened them even more and then let them go. Since all the people were praising God for what had happened, the authorities couldn’t find any way to punish Peter and John. 22 (The man who was healed by this miracle was over 40 years old.)

Psalm 18:2-15 Names of God Bible (NOG) 2 Yahweh is my rock and my Metsuda and my Savior, my El, my rock in whom I take refuge, my Magen, and the strength of my salvation, my stronghold. 3 Yahweh should be praised. I called on him, and I was saved from my enemies. 4 The ropes of death had become tangled around me. The torrents of destruction had overwhelmed me. 5 The ropes of the grave had surrounded me. The clutches of death had confronted me. 6 I called on Yahweh in my distress. I cried to my Elohim for help. He heard my voice from his temple, and my cry for help reached his ears. 7 Then the earth shook and quaked. Even the foundations of the mountains trembled. They shook violently because he was angry. 8 Smoke went up from his nostrils, and a raging fire came out of his mouth. Glowing coals flared up from it. 9 He spread apart the heavens and came down with a dark cloud under his feet. 10 He rode on one of the angels[a] as he flew, and he soared on the wings of the wind. 11 He made the darkness his hiding place, the dark rain clouds his covering. 12 Out of the brightness in front of him, those rain clouds passed by with hailstones and lightning. 13 Yahweh thundered in the heavens. Elyon made his voice heard with hailstones and lightning. 14 He shot his arrows and scattered them. He flashed streaks of lightning and threw them into confusion. 15 Then the ocean floor could be seen. The foundations of the earth were laid bare at your stern warning, O Yahweh, at the blast of the breath from your nostrils.

Proverbs 14:20-28 Names of God Bible (NOG)

20 A poor person is hated even by his neighbor,
    but a rich person is loved by many.
21 Whoever despises his neighbor sins,
    but blessed is the one who is kind to humble people.

22 Don’t those who stray plan what is evil,
    while those who are merciful and faithful plan what is good?
23 In hard work there is always something gained,
    but idle talk leads only to poverty.
24 The crown of wise people is their wealth.
    The stupidity of fools is just that—stupidity!
25 An honest witness saves lives,
    but one who tells lies is dangerous.
26 In the fear of Yahweh there is strong confidence,
    and his children will have a place of refuge.
27 The fear of Yahweh is a fountain of life
    to turn one away from the grasp of death.
28 A large population is an honor for a king,
    but without people a ruler is ruined.

Mark 2:18-22 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Jesus Is Questioned about Fasting

18 John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting. Some people came to Yeshua and said to him, “Why do John’s disciples and the Pharisees’ disciples fast, but your disciples don’t?”

19 Yeshua replied, “Can wedding guests fast while the groom is still with them? As long as they have the groom with them, they cannot fast. 20 But the time will come when the groom will be taken away from them. Then they will fast.

21 “No one patches an old coat with a new piece of cloth that will shrink. Otherwise, the new patch will shrink and rip away some of the old cloth, and the tear will become worse. 22 People don’t pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the wine will make the skins burst, and both the wine and the skins will be ruined. Rather, new wine is to be poured into fresh skins.”

Proverbs 16:16-24 Names of God Bible (NOG)

16 How much better it is to gain wisdom than gold,
    and the gaining of understanding should be chosen over silver.
17 The highway of decent people turns away from evil.
    Whoever watches his way preserves his own life.

18 Pride precedes a disaster,
    and an arrogant attitude precedes a fall.
19 Better to be humble with lowly people
    than to share stolen goods with arrogant people.

20 Whoever gives attention to the Lord’s word prospers,
    and blessed is the person who trusts Yahweh.
21 The person who is truly wise is called understanding,
    and speaking sweetly helps others learn.
22 Understanding is a fountain of life to the one who has it,
    but stubborn fools punish themselves with their stupidity.
23 A wise person’s heart controls his speech,
    and what he says helps others learn.
24 Pleasant words are like honey from a honeycomb—
    sweet to the spirit and healthy for the body.

Proverbs 24:5-14 Names of God Bible (NOG)

A strong man knows how to use his strength,
    but a person with knowledge is even more powerful.
After all, with the right strategy you can wage war,
    and with many advisers there is victory.

Matters of wisdom are beyond the grasp of a stubborn fool.
    At the city gate he does not open his mouth.
Whoever plans to do evil will be known as a schemer.
Foolish scheming is sinful,
    and a mocker is disgusting to everyone.

10 If you faint in a crisis, you are weak.
11 Rescue captives condemned to death,
    and spare those staggering toward their slaughter.
12 When you say, “We didn’t know this,”
    won’t the one who weighs hearts take note of it?
    Won’t the one who guards your soul know it?
    Won’t he pay back people for what they do?

13 Eat honey, my son, because it is good.
    Honey that flows from the honeycomb tastes sweet.
14 The knowledge of wisdom is like that for your soul.
    If you find it, then there is a future,
        and your hope will never be cut off.

Ecclesiastes 10:6-15 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Foolish people are often given high positions, and rich people are left to fill lower positions. I have seen slaves sitting on horses and influential people going on foot like slaves.

Whoever digs a pit may fall into it. Whoever breaks through a stone wall may be bitten by a snake. Whoever works in a stone quarry may get hurt. Whoever splits wood may be injured.

10 If an ax is blunt and the edge isn’t sharpened, then one has to use more strength. But wisdom prepares the way for success. 11 If a snake bites before it has been charmed, then there is no advantage in being a snake charmer.

12 A wise person’s words win favors, but a fool’s lips are self-destructive. 13 A fool starts out by talking foolishness and ends up saying crazy things that are dangerous. 14 He never stops talking. No one knows what the future will bring, or what will happen after death. Who can say! 15 Fools wear themselves out with hard work, because they don’t even know the way to town.

Your words are my joy and my heart’s delight,
because I am called by your name, O Yahweh Elohim Tsebaoth.
17 I didn’t keep company with those who laugh and have fun.
I sat alone because your hand was on me.
You filled me with outrage.
18 Why is my pain unending
and my wound incurable, refusing to heal?
Will you disappoint me like a stream
that dries up in summertime?

19 This is what Yahweh says:

If you will return, I will take you back.
If you will speak what is worthwhile and not what is worthless,
you will stand in my presence.
The people will return to you, but you will not return to them.
20 I will make you like a solid bronze wall in front of these people.
They will fight you, but they will not defeat you.
I am with you, and I will save you and rescue you,

and free you from the power of tyrants.
