2 Samuel 20:10-13

A.(10) …  So Joab and Abishai his brother pursued after Sheba the son of Bichri.

B. (11) And one of Joab’s men stood by him, and said, He that favoureth Joab, and he that is for David, let him go after (Achar) Joab.

C.(12) And Amasa wallowed in blood in the midst of the highway.

D. And when the man saw that all the people stood still,

E. he removed Amasa out of the highway into the field, and cast a cloth upon him,

D’. when he saw that every one that came by him stood still.

C’.(13) When he was removed out of the highway,

B’. all the people went on after (Achar) Joab,

A’. to pursue after Sheba the son of Bichri.

Genesis 5:21-6:9

A. (21) And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: (22) And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: (23) And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: (24) And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

B.(25) And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech: (26) And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters: (27) And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died. (28) And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son: (29) And he called his name Noah,

C. saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground (adamah) which the LORD hath cursed.

D. (30) And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters: (31) And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died. (32) And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

E.(1) And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, (2) That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

F.(3) And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

E’.(4) There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them,

D’. the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown (shem) .

C’. (5) And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (6) And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. (7) And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth (adamah); both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. (8) But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

B’. 9These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations,

A’. and Noah walked with God.

Matthew 16:4-17

A. (4) A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas.  (5) And he left them, and departed.

B. And when his disciples were come to the other side,

C. they had forgotten to take bread.

D. (6) Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

E. (7) And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread. (8) Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread? (9) Do ye not yet understand,

F. neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

F’.(10) Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

E’.(11) How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread,

D’. that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

C’.(12) Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

B’. (13) When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? (14) And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist:some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. (15) He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

A’. (16) And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. (17) And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

2 Peter 3:1-18

A. 1This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

B. 3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

i. 5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

ii. 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

i’.7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store,

ii’. reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

C. 8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing,
that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years,
and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward,

D. not willing that any should perish,
but that all should come to repentance.

a. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night;
b. in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise,
c. and the elements shall melt with fervent heat,
d. the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

F. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved,
what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

a’. 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God,
b’. wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved,
c’. and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
d’. 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

D’. 14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things,
be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

C’. 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation;

B’. even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

A’.17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. 18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Judges 10:18 – 11:8

A. 10:18 And the people and princes of Gilead said one to another, What man is he that will begin to fight against the children of Ammon? he shall be head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.

B. (11:1) Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valour, and he was the son of an harlot:and Gilead begat Jephthah. (2) And Gilead’s wife bare him sons; and his wife’s sons grew up, and they thrust out Jephthah, and said unto him, Thou shalt not inherit in our father’s house; for thou art the son of a strange woman.

C.(3) Then Jephthah fled from his brethren, and dwelt in the land of Tob:and there were gathered vain men to Jephthah, and went out with him.

D.(4) And it came to pass in process of time, that the children of Ammon made war against Israel.

D’.(5) And it was so, that when the children of Ammon made war against Israel,

C’. the elders of Gilead went to fetch Jephthah out of the land of Tob: (6) And they said unto Jephthah, Come, and be our captain, that we may fight with the children of Ammon.

B’. (7) And Jephthah said unto the elders of Gilead, Did not ye hate me, and expel me out of my father’s house? and why are ye come unto me now when ye are in distress?

A’.(8) And the elders of Gilead said unto Jephthah, Therefore we turn again to thee now, that thou mayest go with us, and fight against the children of Ammon, and be our head over all the inhabitants of Gilead. (9) And Jephthah said unto the elders of Gilead, If ye bring me home again to fight against the children of Ammon, and the LORD deliver them before me, shall I be your head? 10 And the elders of Gilead said unto Jephthah, The LORD be witness between us, if we do not so according to thy words.(11) Then Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead, and the people made him head and captain over them: and Jephthah uttered all his words before the LORD in Mizpeh.
