Neofiti Genesis 49:22-25

22 My son Joseph, how you have grown! My son, you who have grown and become mighty and again you are destined to become mighty. I compare you, my son Joseph, to a vine planted by springs of water that sends its roots into the ground, and breaks the teeth of all the rocks, and sends its branches high and overshadows all the trees. Thus did you, Joseph my son, conquer in your wisdom all the magicians of the Egyptians and all their wise men when they mounted you on the second chariot of Pharaoh and acclaimed before you: ‘Long live the father of the king, who is a master in wisdom and young in years.’ And the daughters of the kings and the rulers gazed at you by the windows, and listened to you from the lattices, and cast before you chains, rings and necklaces and breast pendants and all kinds of gold, hoping you would raise your eyes and look at one of them. Far from you, Joseph, my son! You did not raise your eyes nor look at one of them. And the daughters of the kings and of the rulers said one to the other: ‘This is Joseph, the pious man, who has not gone after the appearances of his eyes nor the imaginations of his heart.’ Those are they that destroy the son of man from the world.nn Because of this there will arise from him two tribes: Manasseh and Ephraim who will receive a portion and an inheritance with his brothers in the division of the land. 23 They spoke against him, but all the magicians of Egypt and their wise men were no match for him. They spoke evil before their master, and they informed against him before Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, in order to bring him down from his dignity and to remove him from his royal throne. They spoke calumnious language against him in the palace of Pharaoh, which was more harassing for him than arrows. 24. But he placed his confidence in the Strong One. He stretched out his hand and his arms to beseech mercy from the Strong One of his father Jacob, with the strength of whose arm all the tribes of Israel are sustained. 25 May the Word of the God of your father be at your aid, and may the God of the heavens bless you with the best of the dew and the rain that descend from the heavens from above and with the blessing of the springs of the abyss that come up from the earth, from beneath. Blessed are the breasts from which you sucked and the womb within which you were born.

New Testament

Luke 11:14-27

14 Now he was casting out a demon that was mute. When the demon had gone out, the man who had been mute began to speak, and the crowds were amazed. 15 But some of them said, “By the power of Beelzebul, the ruler of demons, he casts out demons!” 16 Others, to test him, began asking for a sign from heaven. 17 But Jesus, realizing their thoughts, said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is destroyed, and a divided household falls. 18 So if Satan too is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? I ask you this because you claim that I cast out demons by Beelzebul. 19 Now if I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. 20 But if I cast out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has already overtaken you. 21 When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his possessions are safe. 22 But when a stronger man attacks and conquers him, he takes away the first man’s armor on which the man relied and divides up his plunder. 23 Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.

24 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a person, it passes through waterless places looking for rest but not finding any. Then it says, ‘I will return to the home I left.’ 25 When it returns, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. 26 Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they go in and live there, so the last state of that person is worse than the first.”

27 As he said these things, a woman in the crowd spoke out to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you and the breasts at which you nursed!” 28 But he replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it!”
