YesU's Words on Money

Chapter Five

(23) If therefore you are presenting your sacrificial offering for atonement at the altar, and there you remember that you have an argument with a friend, and she is complaining about you because of this matter,

(24) leave there your sacrificial offering before the altar, and go first to atone to your sibling to appease her, and then come and give your sacrificial offerings as gifts for atonement.”

(25) “See that you hasten to atone to your enemy and adversary while you are still walking with her in the way; or she will deliver you to the judge, and the judge will deliver you to her servant, and you are thrown into prison.

(26) Actually I tell you, you will by no means come out from there until the last piece of money is given.

Chapter Six

(19) “Don’t keep heaping up treasures on earth so that they decay and the grub consume it, and where thieves dig through and steal.

(20) But make for yourselves treasures in the heavens, where neither the worm nor grub consumes, and where thieves do not dig through and steal.

(21) For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be.

(22) The lamp of the body is your eyes. If therefore your eyes look straight ahead then your body will not be in the dark but will be full of light.

(23) But if your eye grows dim, your whole body will become dark. And if the light that is in you becomes darkness, all your ways will be dark.”

(24) “No person can serve two lords. For either she will hate the one, and love the other; or else she will honour and stay close to one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.

(24.1) Except you fast to the world, you will in no wise find the Queendom of God.

(24.2) If you do not observe the sabbath as sabbath, you will not see the Parent.

(25) Therefore I say to you, do not be anxious for your souls in what you will eat or what you will drink, or for your bodies in what you will wear. The soul is more precious than food, and the body more than clothing.

(26) See the birds of the heavens. They do not sow seed. Neither do they reap. Nor do they gather into barns. It is your exalted Parent of the heavens who feeds them. Aren’t you more precious than they?

(27) And which of you by being anxious can add twenty inches to your height?

(28) If this is the case, why are you anxious about your clothing? Consider the lilies of the Sharon field, how they grow yet they do not labor or weave, neither do they spin.

(29) Of a truth, I tell you, that even Solomon in all her glory was not clothed like one of these.

(30) But if God clothes the straw which is in the standing grain fresh to-day, and tomorrow it is dried up and thrown into the oven, so much the more will she give you your clothing, Oh you of little trust.

(30.1) So, if you have one garment, what do you lack? Who can add years to your life by worrying about such things? God herself will provide you with clothing!

(31) If God so thinks of you, do not therefore be anxious to say, ‘What will we eat?’ Or, ‘What will we drink?’

(32) because all these things bodies require. For your Parent who is in the heavens knows that you have need of all these things.

(33) But pray first on behalf of God and her righteousness, and all these things will be given to you. So if you ask for the Great Things, God will add to you the little things.

(34) Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow. Tomorrow will be anxious about itself. The trouble of today is enough to care about.

Chapter Ten

(5) “Do not go into any way of the Gentiles, and do not enter into any city of the Samaritans.

(6) But go rather to those sheep who strayed from the family of Israel (meaning She Has Become A Receptacle In Which God Can Be Received And Retained (or one who prevails in wrestling with god and People)).

(7) And as you go, preach, saying, ‘Turn, Turn, the Queendom of the heavens is at hand!’

(8) Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, and overcome mistakes. Do not take wages. Freely you received. Freely give. For you received for nothing. And for nothing you will give.

(9) Possess neither gold nor silver nor money in your money belts.

(10) Neither pack for your journey a change of clothes nor shoes nor staff in your hand. For the worker is worthy to receive enough for her food.

(11) And into whatever city or region you will enter, ask who is good and honourable among them, and there live until you leave.

(12) And as you enter into the house, give them a Shalom, a salutation of Peace, saying ‘Shalom to this house, Shalom to all who in dwell in it.’

(13) If the house is honourable, it will return to you your peace, that is, your Shalom.

(14) But any person who will not welcome you, nor listen to the sound of your words, go out from that house or city, and shake off even the dust of your feet.

(15) Actually I tell you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in that day of doom and judgment than for that city.

(16) I send you out as sheep among wolves. Be therefore wiser than snakes, and as harmless as doves.

Chapter Fifteen

(3) “Why do you also transgress the commandments and words of God, the Mighty One, because of your ordinances and tradition?

(4) Is it not written in your Law from the mouth of God, ‘Honour your parents: and, she that curses or smites her parents, will surely be put to death’?

(5) But you say, ‘Whoever can say to her parents in financial need, “Whatever help you might otherwise have gotten from me was already given as money donated to the Temple treasury, then she does not supposedly have to honour her parents.’ So you make any donation at the temple she might give for the sake of herself as a mistake maker able to wipe out this iniquity against her parents. It is supposedly forgiven and will be removed from her. You have so made the commandment of God void because of your tradition.

(6) So she does not honour her parents by helping them in their financial need, and so you have despised the words of God, the Mighty One, because of your tradition.

Chapter Seventeen

(25) “What do you think, Simon (meaning he who hears (or snub nosed))? The kings of the earth, from whom do they receive customs tribute? From their own children, or from foreigners?”

(26) “If so, the children are free. Do not be dismayed at this.”

(27) “But, so we do not provoke them, go to the sea, and throw a baited net, and take up the fish that comes up first. And when you open her mouth, you will find a didrachma coin. That take, and give it to them for us.”

Chapter Nineteen

(21) “If you would be perfect, go, sell that which you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven, and come, follow me.”

(22) “How do you say ‘I have performed the law and the prophets?’ seeing that it is written in the Law ‘You will love your neighbour as yourself,’ but many of your siblings, children of Abraham, are clad with filth, dying for hunger, and your house is full of many goods, and nothing at all goes out of it to them.”

(23) “Truly I tell you, It is hard for a rich person to come into the Queendom of the heavens.

(24) And again I tell you, it is easier for camel-rope to go through the eye of a needle, than to bring the rich into the Queendom of the heavens.” “One in the heavens, grant salvation.”

(26) “With people the matter is difficult; but with God all things are easy.”

Chapter Twenty

(1) “For the Queendom of heaven is like a person that was a master in her house who rose and went out early in the morning to employ labourers to work in her vineyard.

(2) And when she had agreed with the labourers for one denarius for the whole day, she sent them into her vineyard.

(3) And she went out about nine o’clock in the morning, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace.

(4) And she said to them, ‘Go also into the vineyard, and whatever is just I will give you.’ And they went their way.

(5) Again she went out about noon and also at three o’clock, and did likewise.

(6) And about five o’clock, she went out and found others standing around. And she said to them, ‘Why are you standing here idle all day?’

(7) They said to her, ‘Because no person has hired us.’ she said to them, ‘Go also into the vineyard.’

(8) And when evening had come, the master of the vineyard said to her overseer, ‘Call the labourers, and pay them their wages.’ she began with the last and finished with the first.

(9) The last received one denarius. And when those came that were hired about three o’clock, they received each person a denarius.

(10) And when the first came, they supposed that they would receive more than these. But she only gave a denarius to each of them.

(11) And when they received it, they murmured against the master of the vineyard,

(12) saying, ‘These last have spent but one hour, and you have made them on the same level with us who have borne the load of the day and the heat.’

(13) But she answered and said to one of them, ‘My Friend, I do you no injustice. Didn’t you contract with me for one denarius?

(14) Take it and go. If I wish to give to this last, even as to you,

(15) may I not do according to my desire? Or is there evil in your eyes when I am good?’

(16) So the last will be first, and the first last. Many are called but few are the chosen.”

Chapter Twenty-Five

(1) “Then will the Queendom of heaven be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom and a bride.

(2) And five of them were lazy fools, and five were alert and prudent.

(3) For the five foolish, when they took their lamps, they took no oil with them

(4) but the prudent took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

(5) Now while the bridegroom was delayed, they all lingered and slept.

(6) But at midnight there is a cry, ‘Look, the bridegroom! Come out now to meet her.’

(7) Then all those virgins arose, and made ready their lamps.

(8) And the foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us of your oil. For our lamps have gone out.’

(9) But the prudent answered, saying, ‘We may not give you because there will not be enough for both us and you. Go rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.’

(10) And while they went away to buy, the bridegroom came. And they that were ready went in with her to the banquet-hall. And the door was locked closed.

(11) Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, ‘Our Lord, Lord! Open to us.’

(12) But she answered and said, ‘Truly I tell you, I do not know you.’

(13) And therefore you be careful, alert and vigilant! For you do not know the day nor the hour when the bridegroom will come.”

(14) “The Queendom of the heavens is like a person going on a far seafaring journey to a strange country abroad. She called her own servants, and gave to them her money.

(15) And to one she gave five coins of gold, to another two coins of gold, and lastly she gave one coin of gold to another; to each according to her ability – what was suitable for her. And she went on her journey.

(16) Immediately she that accepted the five coins of gold went and traded with them, and acquired five more gold coins.

(17) She that accepted two gold coins went at once and squandered the substance with harlots and flute-people.

(18) And she that received one gold coin went away and dug in the earth, and hid her lord’s money in the hole she dug.

(19) Now after a long time the lord of those servants returned, and took stock with them.

(20) And she that had accepted the five gold coins came near, saying, ‘Lord, you gave me five talents, and here are ten, including another five which I have gained for you.’

(21) her lord said to her, “Well done. Truly you are a good and obedient servant. You have been trustworthy over a few things. I will set you over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.

(22) She that accepted the two gold coins and squandered them on harlots and flute people was shut up in prison.

(30) her Lord said: ‘And throw out this worthless and lazy servant into prison in the lowest places. There will be the weeping and the grinding of teeth.’

(24) And she also that had accepted the one gold coin came near and said, ‘Lord, I knew that you are a firm and hard person, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter.

(25) And I was afraid, and went away and hid your coin of gold in the earth. Here, you have back your gold coin as your own.’

(26) But her lord answered and said to her, ‘You wicked and lazy servant. You knew that I reap where I did not sow, and gathered where I did not scatter.

(27) You ought therefore to have put my money to my money-changers, and at my return I should have received back mine own with profit.

(28) Take away therefore the coin of gold from her, and give it to her that has the ten gold coins.’

(29) For to everyone that has will more be given, and she will have abundance. But from her that does not have any profit to show, even that which she has and was intended for her will be taken away.”

(31) “But when the Child of People will come in her revelation, and all the messengers with her, then she will sit on her glorious throne.

(32) And before her will be gathered all the nations. And she will separate between them one from another, these from those as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

(33) And she will set the sheep on her right hand, but the goats on the left hand.

(34) Then will she say to them on her right hand, ‘Come, you knelt to of my Parent, inherit the Queendom prepared for you from the creation of the world until now.

(35) For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a wayfarer, and you took me in.

(36) Naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to me.’

(37) Then will the righteous ones answer her, saying, ‘Oh our Lord, when did we see you hungry, and feed you? Or thirsty, and gave you something to drink?

(38) And when did we see you a stranger and took you in? Or naked, and clothed you?

(39) And when did we see you sick, or in prison, and came to you?’

(40) And the Ruler will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I tell you, every time you did it to one of the needy of these which are my siblings even the little ones like these, it is as if you have done it to me.’

(41) Then she will also say to them on the left hand, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, and get into the eternal fire – the place prepared for the adversary and her messengers.

(42) Because I was hungry, and you did not give me anything to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink.

(43) I was a wayfarer, and you did not take me in. Naked, and you did not clothe me. Sick, and in prison, and you did not visit me.’

(44) Then will they also answer, saying, ‘Oh our Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a wayfarer, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not serve you?’

(45) Then will she answer them, saying, ‘Truly I tell you, whenever you neglected to do so to these needy, even the little ones like these, you did not do it to me.’

(46) And these will go away into eternal punishment but the righteous into eternal life.”
