LĔWI 13 (Levi 13)

1 And now, my children, I command you: Reverence 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim with your whole heart, and walk according to His Torah in integrity.

2 Teach your children letters also, so that they might have understanding throughout all their lives as they ceaselessly read the Torah of Elohim.

3 For everyone who knows the Torah of Elohim shall be honored wherever he goes, he shall not be a stranger.

4 He shall acquire many more friends than his parents, and many men will want to serve him and to hear the Torah from his mouth.

5 Therefore, my sons, do righteousness on earth in order that you might find it in shamayim.

6 Sow good things in your souls and you will find them in your lives. If you sow evil, you will reap every trouble and tribulation.

7 Acquire wisdom in the reverence of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 because if a captivity occurs, if cities and territories are laid waste, if silver and gold and every possession are lost, nothing can take away the wisdom of the wise man except the blindness of impiety and the obtuseness of sin.

8 For if anyone preserves himself from these evil deeds, his wisdom shall be glorious, even among his opponents; it will be found to be a homeland in a foreign territory, and a friend in the midst of his enemies.

9 Whoever teaches good things and practices them shall be enthroned with sovereigns, as was Yosĕph, my brother.
