YOḆELIM 1 (Jubilees 1)

1 And it came to be in the first year of the children of Yisra’ĕl coming out of Mitsrayim, in the third month, on the sixteenth day of the month, that Elohim spoke to Mosheh, saying, “Come up to Me on the mountain, and I shall give you two tablets of stone of the Torah and of the Command, which have I written, that you may teach them.”

2 And Mosheh went up into the mountain of Elohim, and the esteem of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 dwelt on Mount Sinai, and a cloud overshadowed it six days.

3 And He called to Mosheh on the seventh day out of the midst of the cloud, and the appearance of the esteem of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was like a flaming fire on the top of the mountain.

4 And Mosheh was on the mountain forty days and forty nights, and Elohim taught him the earlier and the latter history of the division of all the days of the Law and of the Witness.

5 And He said, “Incline your heart to every Word which I shall speak to you on this mountain, and write them in a Book in order that their generations may see how I have not forsaken them for all the evil which they have done in transgressing the Covenant which I establish between Me and you for their generations this day on Mount Sinai.

6 “And so it shall come to be when all these matters come upon them, that they shall recognise that I am more righteous than they in all their judgments and in all their actions, and they shall recognise that I have been true with them.

7 “And you shall write for yourself all these Words which I declare to you this day, for I know their rebellion and their stiff neck, before I bring them into the land of which I swore to their fathers; to Aḇraham and to Yitsḥaq and to Ya’aqoḇ, saying, ‘Unto your seed I shall give a land flowing with milk and honey.’

8 “And they shall eat and be satisfied, and they shall turn to strange mighty ones, to mighty ones which cannot deliver them from any of their tribulation, and this witness shall be heard for a witness against them.

9 “For they shall forget all My Commands, even all that I command them, and they shall walk after the gentiles, and after their uncleanness, and after their shame, and shall serve their mighty ones. And these shall come to be an offence to them and a tribulation and an affliction and a snare.

10 “And many shall perish and they shall be taken captive, and shall fall into the hands of the enemy, because they have forsaken My Laws and My Commands, and the Festivals of My Covenant, and My Shabbathoth, and My Qodesh Place which I have qadosh for Myself in their midst, and My Mishkan, and My Miqdash, which I have qadosh for Myself in the midst of the land, that I should place My Name upon it, and there it should dwell.

11 “And they shall make for themselves high places and Ashĕrim and carved images, and they shall worship, each his own, so as to go astray, and they shall offer their children to demons, and to all the works of the straying of their hearts.

12 “And I shall send witnesses to them, that I may witness against them, but they shall not hear, and shall slay the witnesses also, and they shall persecute those who seek the Law, and they shall overturn and change all so as to work evil before My eyes.

13 “And I shall hide My face from them, and I shall deliver them into the hand of the gentiles for captivity, and for a prey, and for devouring. And I shall remove them from the midst of the land, and I shall scatter them among the gentiles.

14 “And they shall forget all My Torah and all My Commands and all My Right-Rulings, and shall go astray as to new moons, and Shabbathoth, and Festivals, and Yoḇelim, and Laws.

15 “And after this they shall turn to Me from among the gentiles with all their heart and with all their being and with all their strength, and I shall gather them from among all the gentiles, and they shall seek Me, so that I shall be found by them, when they seek Me with all their heart and with all their being.

16 “And I shall reveal to them great peace with righteousness, and I shall plant them in this land in truth, with all My heart and with all My being, and they shall be for a beraḵah and not for a curse, and they shall be the head and not the tail.

17 “And I shall build My Miqdash in their midst, and I shall dwell with them, and I shall be their Elohim and they shall be My people in truth and righteousness.

18 “And I shall not forsake them nor fail them; for I am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 their Elohim.”

19 And Mosheh fell on his face and prayed and said, “O Aḏonai my Elohim, do not forsake Your people and Your inheritance, so that they should wander in the straying of their hearts. And do not deliver them into the hands of their enemies, the gentiles, lest they should rule over them and cause them to sin against You.

20 “Let Your kindness, O Aḏonai, be lifted up on Your people, and create in them an upright spirit, and do not let the spirit of beliya’al rule over them to accuse them before You, and to ensnare them from all the paths of righteousness, so that they might perish from before Your face.

21 “But they are Your people and Your inheritance, which You have delivered with Your great power from the hands of the Mitsrites. Create in them a clean heart and a qodesh spirit, and do not let them be ensnared in their sins from this time and forever.”

22 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to Mosheh, “I know their unruliness and their thoughts and they are stiffnecked, and they shall not be obedient till they confess their own sin and the sin of their fathers.

23 “And after this they shall turn to Me in all uprightness and with all their heart and with all their being, and I shall circumcise the foreskin of their heart and the foreskin of the heart of their seed, and I shall create in them a qodesh spirit, and I shall cleanse them so that they shall not turn away from Me from that day unto eternity.

24 “And their beings shall cling to Me and to all My Commands, and they shall perform My Commands, and I shall be their Father and they shall be My children.

25 “And they shall all be called children of the living Elohim, and every messenger and every spirit shall know, even they shall know that these are My children, and that I am their Father in uprightness and righteousness, and that I love them.

26 “And you shall write down for yourself all these Words which I declare unto you on this mountain, the first and the last, which shall come to be in all the divisions of the days in the Law and in the Witness and in the Shabbathoth and the Yoḇelim forever, until I descend and dwell with them forever.”

27 And He said to the messenger of the presence, “Write for Mosheh, from the beginning of creation till My Miqdash has been built among them forever.

28 “And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall appear to the eyes of all, and all shall know that I am the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl and the Father of all the children of Ya’aqoḇ, and Sovereign on Mount Tsion forever. And Tsion and Yerushalayim shall be qodesh.”

29 And the messenger of the presence who went before the camp of Yisra’ĕl took the tablets of the divisions of the years from the time of the creation of the Law and of the Witness of the Shabbathoth, of the Yoḇelim, according to the individual years, according to all the number of the Yoḇelim, from the day of the creation when the shamayim and the earth shall be renewed and all their creation according to the powers of the shamayim, and according to all the creation of the earth, until the Miqdash of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall be made in Yerushalayim on Mount Tsion, and all the lights be renewed for healing and for peace and for a beraḵah for all the chosen of Yisra’ĕl, and so it shall be from that day and to all the days of the earth.
