Unlawful Sexual Relations
 1And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2"Speak to the people of Israel and say to them,(A) I am the LORD your God. 3(B) You shall not do as they do in the land of Egypt, where you lived, and(C) you shall not do as they do in the land of Canaan, to which I am bringing you. You shall not walk in their statutes. 4(D) You shall follow my rules[a] and keep my statutes and walk in them.(E) I am the LORD your God. 5(F) You shall therefore keep my statutes and my rules;(G) if a person does them, he shall live by them: I am the LORD.

The Lord’s Prayer
 1Now Jesus[a] was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray,(A) as John taught his disciples." 2And he said to them, (B) "When you pray, say:
   (C) "Father,(D) hallowed be(E) your name.(F) Your kingdom come. 3(G) Give us(H) each day our daily bread,[b] 4and(I) forgive us our sins,
   for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us.And(J) lead us not into temptation."

 5And he said to them, "Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves, 6for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him'; 7and he will answer from within, 'Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed. I cannot get up and give you anything'? 8I tell you, though he will not get up and give him anything(K) because he is his friend, yet because of his impudence[c] he will rise and give him whatever he needs. 9And I tell you,(L) ask, and(M) it will be given to you;(N) seek, and you will find;(O) knock, and it will be opened to you. 10For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. 11What father among you, if his son asks for[d] a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; 12or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13If you then,(P) who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father(Q) give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"
