8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and take her, as her brother-in-law, and raise up seed to thy brother. 9 Onan thus knew that the seed should not be his, and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, so as not to give seed unto his brother. 10 And the thing which he did was displeasing in the eyes of the Lord: wherefore he slew him also.

4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, on the day that the Lord God made earth and heaven. 5 And every plant of the field was not yet on the earth, and every herb of the field had not yet grown; for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and man was not yet there to till the ground. 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 And the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being. 8 And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden to the eastward, and he put there the man whom he had formed. 9 And the Lord God caused to grow out of the ground every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food; and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it was parted, and became four principal streams. 11 The name of the first is Pishon, the same which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 And the gold of that land is good; there is the bdellium and the onyx stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Gihon, the same which compasseth the whole land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel, the same which floweth towards the east of Assyria; and the fourth river is the Euphrates. 15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden, to till it, and to keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat; 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it; for on the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. 18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help suitable for him. 19 And the Lord God had formed out of the ground every beast of the field, and every fowl of the heaven, and he brought them unto the man to see what he would call them; and whatsoever the man would call every living creature, that should be its name. 20 And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the heaven, and to every beast of the field; but for man there was not found a help suitable for him. 21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof. 22 And the Lord God formed the rib which he had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And the man said, This time it is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; this shall be called Woman, [Ishah,] because out of Man [Ishi] was this one taken. 24 Therefore doth a man leave his father and his mother, and cleave unto his wife, and they become one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made; and he said unto the woman, Hath God indeed said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye will surely not die; 5 For God doth know, that, on the day ye eat thereof, your eyes will be opened, and ye will be as God, knowing good and evil. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her, and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of both of them were opened, and they felt that they were naked; and they sewed fig-leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day; and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the Lord God called unto the man, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10 And he said, Thy voice I heard in the garden; and I was afraid, because I am naked; and I hid myself. 11 And he said, Who told thee that thou art naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? 12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. 13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. 14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, be thou cursed above all the cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; he shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt wound his heel. 16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy pain and the suffering of thy conception; in pain shalt thou bring forth children; and for thy husband shall be thy desire, but he shall rule over thee. 17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it; cursed be the ground for thy sake; in pain shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life. 18 And thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herbs of the field. 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground, for out of it wast thou taken; for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. 20 And the man called his wife’s name Eve [Chavvah]; because she was the mother of all living [Chay]. 21 And the Lord God made unto Adam and to his wife coats of skins, and clothed them. 22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever— 23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden the Cherubim, and the flaming sword which revolveth, to guard the way to the tree of life.
1 And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his brothers, and he pitched his tent with a certain Adullamite whose name was Chirah. 2 And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shua; and he took her, and went in unto her. 3 And she conceived, and bore a son; and he called his name ‘Er. 4 And she conceived again, and bore a son; and she called his name Onan. 5 And she again bore another son; and she called his name Shelah: and he was at Chezib, when she bore him. 6 And Judah took a wife for ‘Er his first-born, whose name was Tamar. 7 And ‘Er, Judah’s first-born, was displeasing in the eyes of the Lord; and the Lord slew him. 8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and take her, as her brother-in-law, and raise up seed to thy brother. 9 Onan thus knew that the seed should not be his, and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, so as not to give seed unto his brother. 10 And the thing which he did was displeasing in the eyes of the Lord: wherefore he slew him also. 11 Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter-in-law, Remain a widow at thy father’s house, till Shelah my son be grown; for he thought, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brothers have done. And Tamar went and dwelt in her father’s house. 12 And many days had elapsed when the daughter of Shua, Judah’s wife, died; and after Judah was comforted, he went up unto his sheep-shearers, he and his friend Chirah the Adullamite, to Timnah. 13 And it was told unto Tamar, saying, Behold, thy father-in-law goeth up to Timnah to shear his sheep. 14 And she put her widow’s garments off from her, and covered herself with a vail, and concealed her face, and seated herself at the cross-road, which is by the way to Timnah; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him for wife. 15 And Judah saw her and thought her to be a harlot; because she had covered her face. 16 And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee; for he knew not that she was his daughter-in-law. And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me? 17 And he said, I will send thee a kid from the flock. And she said, If thou wilt give me a pledge, till thou send it. 18 And he said, What is the pledge which I shall give thee? And she said, Thy signet, and thy scarf, and thy staff that is in thy hand. And he gave them unto her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him. 19 And she arose, and went away, and laid by her vail from her, and put on the garments of her widowhood. 20 And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullamite, to take the pledge out of the woman’s hand; but he found her not. 21 Then he asked the men of her place, saying, Where is the harlot, that was at the cross-road on the highway? And they said, There hath been no harlot in this neighborhood. 22 And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the men of the place have said, There hath been no harlot in this place. 23 And Judah said, Let her keep it, lest we be put to shame; behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her. 24 And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told to Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter-in-law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by prostitution. And Judah said, Lead her forth, and let her be burnt. 25 When she was led forth, she sent to her father-in-law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Acknowledge, I pray thee, to whom belong these, the signet, the scarf, and staff. 26 And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her not again any more. 27 And it came to pass at the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb. 28 And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread, saying, This came out first. 29 And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold his brother came out; and she said, How hast thou broken forth! this breach is upon thee: therefore his name was called Perez. 30 And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zerach.
9 And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife! And he said, Behold, in the tent. 10 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee at this time next year: and lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it at the door of the tent, which was behind him. 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in years; it had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. 12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord also being old! 13 And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, since I am old? 14 Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, at this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son. 15 Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid; but he said, Nay; indeed thou didst laugh. 16 And the men rose up from there and looked toward Sodom; and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.
8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and take her, as her brother-in-law, and raise up seed to thy brother.
19 And if a woman have an issue, so that blood flow from her flesh: then shall she be in her state of separation seven days; and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean until the evening. 20 And every thing that she may lie upon in her separation shall be unclean: and whatever she may sit upon shall be unclean. 21 And whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening. 22 And whosoever toucheth any vessel, that she may sit upon, shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening. 23 And if something be on the bed, or on any thing whereon she may sit, when he toucheth it, he shall be unclean until the evening.

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a male child: then shall she be unclean seven days, even as in the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean. 3 And on the eighth day shall the flesh of his foreskin be circumcised. 4 And thirty and three days shall she then continue in the blood of her purification; any thing hallowed shall she not touch, and into the sanctuary shall she not come, until the days of her purification be at an end. 5 But if she bear a female child, then shall she be unclean two weeks as in her separation; and sixty and six days shall she continue in the blood of the purification.
9 For every one whatever that curseth his father or his mother shall be put to death: his father or his mother hath he cursed, his blood shall be upon him.
11 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying, 12 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If the wife of any man go aside, and commit a trespass against him, 13 And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hidden from the eyes of her husband, because she hath been secretly defiled; and there be no witness against her, and she have not been detected and in the fact; 14 And the spirit of jealousy come over him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she have been defiled; or the spirit of jealousy come over him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she have not been defiled: 15 Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley-meal; he shall not pour any oil upon it, nor put any frankincense thereupon; for it is a meat-offering of jealousy, a meat-offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance. 16 And the priest shall bring her near, and place her before the Lord; 17 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water; 18 And the priest shall place the woman before the Lord, and uncover the woman’s head, and put upon her hands the meat-offering of memorial, it is the meat-offering of jealousy; and in the hand of the priest shall be the bitter waters that bring the curse. 19 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and he shall say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness behind thy husband: then be thou free from these bitter waters that bring the curse. 20 But if thou hast gone aside behind thy husband, and if thou hast been defiled, and some man have lain with thee besides thy husband:— 21 And the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of imprecation, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The Lord then make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the Lord doth cause thy thigh to fall away, and thy belly to swell; 22 And these waters that bring the curse shall go into thy bowels, to cause the belly to swell, and the thigh to fall away; and the woman shall say, Amen, amen. 23 And the priest shall write these curses on a roll, and he shall blot them out with the bitter waters. 24 And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter waters that bring the curse: and the waters that bring the curse shall enter into her for bitterness. 25 And the priest shall take out of the woman’s hand the meat-offering of jealousy, and he shall wave the meat-offering before the Lord, and bring it near to the altar: 26 And the priest shall take a handful from the meat-offering, as its memorial, and burn it upon the altar, and after that shall he cause the woman to drink the water. 27 And when he hath made her drink the water, then shall it come to pass, if she have been defiled, and have committed a trespass against her husband, that the waters that bring the curse shall enter into her, for bitterness, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall fall away; and the woman shall become a curse among her people. 28 And if the woman have not been defiled, but be clean: then shall she remain unharmed, and she shall conceive seed. 29 This is the law of jealousies, when a woman goeth aside behind her husband, and hath been defiled; 30 Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh over him, and he be jealous of his wife; and he shall place the woman before the Lord, and the priest shall do unto her altogether according to this law. 31 And the man shall be guiltless from iniquity; but this woman shall bear her iniquity.
1 And there came nigh the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Chepher, the son of Gil’ad, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of Menasseh the son of Joseph: and these are the names of his daughters, Machlah, No’ah, and Choglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah. 2 And they stood before Moses, and before Elazar the priest, and before the princes, and all the congregation, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying, 3 Our father died in the wilderness; but he was not among the company of those that gathered themselves together against the Lord in the company of Korach; but in his own sin he died, and sons he had not. 4 Why should the name of our father be done away from the midst of his family, because he hath no son? Give unto us a possession among the brothers of our father. 5 And Moses brought their cause before the Lord. 6 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying, 7 The daughters of Zelophehad speak rightly: thou shalt indeed give them a possession as an inheritance among the brothers of their father; and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them. 8 And unto the children of Israel shalt thou speak, saying, If a man die, and have no son, then shall ye cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter. 9 And if he have no daughter, then shall ye give his inheritance unto his brothers. 10 And if he have no brothers, then shall ye give his inheritance unto his father’s brothers. 11 And if his father have no brothers, then shall ye give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall inherit it; and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of justice, as the Lord hath commanded Moses.
2 (30:3) If a man make a vow unto the Lord, or he swear an oath to bind his soul with an obligation: he shall not profane his word; according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth shall he do. 3 (30:4) And if a woman make a vow unto the Lord, and bind herself by an obligation, being in her father’s house in her youth; 4 (30:5) And her father hear her vow, and her obligation wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her father be silent to her: then shall all her vows stand, and every obligation wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand. 5 (30:6) But if her father disallow her on the day that he heareth it: all her vows or her obligations, wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall not stand; and the Lord will forgive her, because her father hath disallowed her. 6 (30:7) And if she be given to a man, and have vows upon her, or what she may have uttered with her lips, wherewith she hath bound her soul; 7 (30:8) And her husband hear it, and be silent to her on the day that he heareth it: then shall her vows stand, and her obligations wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand. 8 (30:9) But if on the day of her husband’s hearing it, he disallow her: then doth he annul her vow which is upon her, and that which she hath uttered with her lips, wherewith she hath bound her soul; and the Lord will forgive her. 9 (30:10) But regarding the vow of a widow, or of her that is divorced, all, wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand for her. 10 (30:11) And if she had vowed in her husband’s house, or had bound her soul by an obligation with an oath; 11 (30:12) And her husband heard it, and was silent to her, and disallowed her not: then all her vows shall stand, and every obligation, wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand. 12 (30:13) But if her husband hath annulled them on the day he heard them: then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips, concerning her vows, or concerning the obligation of her soul, shall not stand; her husband hath annulled them; and the Lord will forgive her. 13 (30:14) Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the person, her husband may confirm it, or her husband may annul it. 14 (30:15) But if her husband should be silent to her from day to day: then hath he confirmed all her vows, or all her obligations, which are upon her; he hath confirmed them, because he was silent to her on the day that he heard them. 15 (30:16) But if he should annul them after the day that he hath heard them: then shall he bear her iniquity.
22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to a husband: then shall both of them die, the man that lieth with the woman, and the woman; and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel.
13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, 14 And he lay an accusation against her, and spread abroad an evil name upon her, and say, This woman I took for wife, and when I came near to her, I found no tokens of virginity in her: 15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city, to the gate. 16 And the father of the damsel shall say unto the elders, My daughter I gave unto this man for wife; but he hath conceived hatred toward her; 17 And, lo, he hath laid an accusation against her, saying, I have found no tokens of virginity in thy daughter; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity; and they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. 18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him; 19 And they shall amerce him in a hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel; because he hath spread abroad an evil name upon a virgin of Israel; and she shall remain his wife; he shall not be at liberty to put her away all his days. 20 But if this thing was true, there have not been found tokens of virginity in the damsel: 21 Then shall they lead out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die; because she hath wrought a disgraceful deed in Israel, to commit incest in her father’s house; and thou shalt put away the evil from the midst of thee.
28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, who is not betrothed, and lay fast hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found: 29 Then shall the man who lieth with her give unto the father of the damsel fifty shekels of silver; and she shall become his wife, because he hath done violence to her, he shall not be at liberty to put her away all his days. 30 (23:1) A man shall not take his lather’s wife, and he shall not uncover his father’s skirt.
1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass, that if she find no favor in his eyes, because he hath found some scandalous thing in her, he may write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her away out of his house; 2 And she shall depart out of his house; and if she go and become another man’s wife; 3 And the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her away out of his house; or if the latter husband, who took her as his wife, should die: 4 Then shall her former husband, who had sent her away, not be at liberty to take her again to be his wife, after she hath been defiled; for it is abomination before the Lord; and thou shalt not bring sin upon the land, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
13 And David took yet more concubines and wives out of Jerusalem, after he was come from Hebron; and there were born to David yet more sons and daughters.
20 A wise son causeth his father to rejoice; but a foolish man despiseth his mother.
1 A wise son becometh so by the correction of his father; but a scorner hearkeneth not to rebuke.
26 And I find as more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and whose hands are bonds: he that is deemed good before God will escape from her; but the sinner will be caught by her. 27 Behold, this have I found, saith Koheleth, adding one to the other, to find experience, 28 What my soul constantly sought, but I found it not; one man among a thousand did I find; but a woman among all these did I not find.
4 Fear not, for thou shalt not be made ashamed; and be not confounded, for thou shalt not be put to the blush; for the shame of thy youth shalt thou forget, and the reproach of thy widowhood shalt thou not remember any more.
20 Keep, O my son, the commandment of thy father, and reject not the teaching of thy mother: 21 Bind them upon thy heart continually, tie them about thy throat. 22 When thou walkest, it shall lead thee; when thou liest down, it shall watch over thee; and when thou art awake, it shall converse with thee. 23 For the commandment is a lamp, and the law is light; and the way of life are the admonitions of correction: 24 To guard thee against a bad woman, from the flattery of an alien tongue. 25 Covet not her beauty in thy heart, and let her not conquer thee with her eyelids. 26 For by means of a harlot one is brought down to the last loaf of bread: and an adulterous woman will even hunt for the precious life, 27 Can a man gather up fire in his lap, and shall his clothes not be burnt? 28 Can a man walk along upon hot coals, and shall his feet not be burnt? 29 So it is with him that goeth in to his neighbor’s wife: no one that toucheth her shall remain unpunished. 30 Men do not despise the thief, if he steal, to gratify his craving when he is hungry: 31 And if he be found, he must pay sevenfold; all the wealth his house must he give. 32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh sense: he that is the destroyer of his soul, will alone do this. 33 Plague and disgrace will he meet with; and his reproach will not be blotted out. 34 For jealousy is the fury of a husband, and he will not spare on the day of vengeance. 35 He will not regard the appearance of any ransom; and he will not be content, though thou give ever so many bribes.
1 My son, observe my sayings, and my commandments must thou treasure up with thee. 2 Observe my commandments, and live: and my teaching as the apple of thy eyes. 3 Bind them around thy fingers, write them upon the table of thy heart. 4 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman: 5 That they may keep thee from an adulterous woman, from an alien that useth flattering speeches. 6 For through the window of my house, through my lattice did I once look out, 7 And I beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a lad void of sense; 8 He was passing through the market-place near her corner; and he stepped along on the way to her house, 9 In the twilight, in the evening of the day, in the depth of the night and when it was dark: 10 And, behold, a woman came to meet him with the attire of a harlot, and obdurate of heart. 11 (She is noisy and ungovernable; in her house her feet never rest; 12 At one time she is in the street, at another in the open places, and near every corner doth she lurk,) 13 And she caught hold of him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face she said to him, 14 “I had bound myself to bring peace-offerings; this day have I paid my vows: 15 Therefore am I come forth to meet thee, to seek thy presence diligently, and I have found thee. 16 With tapestry coverings have I decked my bed, with embroidered coverlids of the fine linen of Egypt. 17 I have sprinkled my couch with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. 18 Come, let us indulge in love until the morning: let us delight ourselves with dalliances. 19 For the man is not in his house, he is gone on a journey a great way off: 20 The bag of money hath he taken with him, by the day of the new-moon festival only will he come home.” 21 She seduced him by the abundance of her reasoning: by the flattery of her lips she misguided him. 22 He followed after her suddenly, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, and as in fetters to his correction, the fool: 23 Till an arrow cleaveth through his liver; as a bird hasteneth into the snare, and knoweth not that it is done to take his life. 24 And now, O children, hearken unto me, and listen to the sayings of my mouth. 25 Let not thy heart turn aside to her ways, do not go astray on her paths. 26 For many deadly wounded hath she caused to fall: yea, very numerous are all those slain by her. 27 The ways to the nether world is her house leading down to the chambers of death.
24 And his daughter was Sheerah, who built Beth-choron the lower, and the upper, and Uzzen-sheerah.
