[And so] We did certainly give Moses the Book and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Holy Spirit. But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party [of messengers] you denied and another party you killed?
Zechariah 7:11 - 12, Torah
[For] they refused to listen, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. Indeed, they made their hearts [as] an adamant stone, unless they should hear the law, and the words which the Lord of hosts has sent in His Spirit by the former prophets, therefore a great wrath came from the Lord of hosts -
2:89 - 90, Qur'an
[For] when there came to them a Book from God confirming that which was with them, although before they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieved - but [then] when there came to them that which they recognized, they disbelieved in it; so the curse of God will be upon the disbelievers. How wretched is that for which they sold their souls - that they would disbelieve in what God has revealed through [their] outrage that God would send down His favor upon whom He wills from among His servants. So they returned having [earned] wrath upon wrath. And for the disbelievers is a humiliating punishment -
[For] when it is said to them, "Believe in what God has revealed," they say, "We believe [only] in what was revealed to us." And they disbelieve in what came after it, while it is the truth confirming that which is with them. Say, "Then why did you kill the prophets of God before, if you are [indeed] believers?"
13:19 - 20, Qur'an
Then is he who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth like one who is blind? They will only be reminded who are people of understanding - those who fulfill the covenant of God and do not break the contract -
3:81 - 84, Qur'an
When God took the covenant of the prophets, [saying], "Whatever I give you of the Scripture and wisdom and then there comes to you a messenger confirming what is with you, you [must] believe in him and support him." [God] said, "Have you acknowledged and taken upon that My commitment?" They said, "We have acknowledged it." He said, "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses." And whoever turned away after that, they were the defiantly disobedient. So is it other than the religion of God they desire, while to Him have submitted [all] those within the heavens and earth, willingly or by compulsion, and to Him they will be returned? [So] say, "We have believed in God and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the [twelve] tribes [of Israel], and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are submitting to Him."
I Breathed into Adam of My Spirit
Joseph, a Man in whom the Spirit of God is
Where is He who Put His Spirit in Moses?
My Servant Caleb had Another Spirit with him

The Spirit of the Lord Came upon David
Zacharias was Filled with the Holy Spirit

We Breathed into Mary through Our Spirit
The Spirit of the Lord will Rest upon Jesus

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me
Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit
Everything will Come to Pass in the Order Shown
38:67 - 72, Qur'an
Say, "It is great news from which you turn away. I had no knowledge of the exalted assembly [of angels] when they were disputing [the creation of Adam]. It has not been revealed to me except that I am a clear warner." [So remember] when your Lord said to the angels, "Indeed, I am going to create a human being from clay. So when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My Spirit, then fall down to him in prostration."
7:18 - 19, Qur'an
[God] said, "Get out of Paradise, reproached and expelled. Whoever follows you among them - I will surely fill Hell with you, all together." And "O Adam, dwell, you and your wife, in Paradise and eat from wherever you will but do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers."
7:20 - 21, Qur'an
But Satan whispered to them to make apparent to them that which was concealed from them of their private parts. He said, "Your Lord did not forbid you this tree except that you become angels or become of the immortal." And he swore [by God] to them, "Indeed, I am to you from among the sincere advisors."
And [so] Adam and his wife ate of it, and their private parts became apparent to them, and they began to fasten over themselves from the leaves of Paradise. And Adam disobeyed his Lord and erred.
2:37 - 39, Qur'an
Then Adam received from his Lord [some] words, and He accepted his repentance. Indeed, it is He who is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful. [Then] We said, "Go down from [Paradise], all of you. And when guidance comes to you from Me, whoever follows My guidance - there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. And those who disbelieve and deny Our signs - those will be companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally."
[So] O Children of Israel, remember My favor which I have bestowed upon you and fulfill My covenant [upon you] that I will fulfill your covenant [from Me], and be afraid of [only] Me. And believe in what I have sent down confirming that which is [already] with you, and be not the first to disbelieve in it. And do not exchange My signs for a small price, and fear [only] Me.
Genesis 37:10 - 11, Torah
[And so] he told [it] to his father, and to his brethren, and his father rebuked him, and said to him, "What [is] this dream that you have dreamed? Should I and your mother and your brethren indeed come to prostrate to you to the earth?" And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.
Genesis 37:20, Torah
[But when they were alone, they said to one another,] "Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, 'Some evil beast has devoured him,' and we will see what will become of his dreams."
Genesis 37:22, Torah
[But] Reuben said to them, "Shed no blood, [but] cast him into this pit that [is] in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him;" that he might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.
So when they took him [out] and agreed to put him into the bottom of the well - We inspired to [Joseph], "You will surely inform them about this affair of theirs while they do not perceive [your identity]."
Genesis 37:23 - 24, Torah
[So] it came to pass, when Joseph was brought to his brethren, that they stripped Joseph out of his coat, [his] coat of [many] colors that [was] on him; and they took him, and cast him into a pit, and the pit [was] empty; [there was] no water in it.
12:19 - 20, Qur'an
[Then] there came a company of travelers; [and] they sent their water drawer, and he let down his bucket. He said, "Good news! Here is a boy." And they concealed him as merchandise; and God was knowing of what they did. And they sold him for a reduced price - a few dirhams - and they were, concerning him, of those content with little.
And the one from Egypt who bought him said to his wife, "Make his residence comfortable. Perhaps he will benefit us, or we will adopt him as a son." And thus, We established Joseph in the land that We might teach him the interpretation of events. And God is predominant over His affair, but most of the people do not know.
Genesis 41:1 - 4, Torah
[So] it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed, and, behold, he stood by the river. And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favored young cows and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow. And, behold, seven other young cows came up after them out of the river, ill favored and leanfleshed; and stood by the [other] young cows upon the brink of the river. And the ill favored and leanfleshed young cows ate up the seven well favored and fat young cows. So Pharaoh awoke.
Genesis 41:15, Torah
And [it came to pass that] Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I have dreamed a dream, and [there are] none who can interpret it, and I have heard [it] said of you, [that] you can understand a dream to interpret it."
Genesis 41:28 - 30, Torah
[So Joseph told Pharaoh,] "This [is] the thing which I have spoken to Pharaoh, 'What God [is] about to do, He shows to Pharaoh.' Behold, seven years of great plenty come throughout all the land of Egypt. And there will arise after them, seven years of famine; and all the plenty will be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine will consume the land.
Genesis 41:35 - 37, Torah
[So] let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. And that food will be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which will be in the land of Egypt; that the land does not perish through the famine." And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.
Genesis 41:38 - 39, Torah
[So] Pharaoh said to his servants, "Can we find [one such] as this, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?" And Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Forasmuch as God has shown you all this, there are none so discreet and wise as you."
They said, "Are you indeed Joseph?" He said "I am Joseph, and this is my brother. God has certainly favored us. Indeed, he who fears God and is patient, then indeed, God does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good."
Genesis 45:8 - 9, Torah
So now [it was] not you [who] sent me here, but God, and He has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. Hurry, and go up to my father, and say to him, 'Thus your son Joseph says, 'God has made me lord of all Egypt, come down to me, do not stay.'"
12:100 - 101, Qur'an
[And so] he raised his parents upon the throne, and they bowed to him in prostration. And he said, "O my father, this is the explanation of my vision of before. My Lord has made it reality. And He was certainly good to me when He took me out of prison and brought you [here] from bedouin life after Satan had induced [estrangement] between me and my brothers. Indeed, my Lord is Subtle in what He wills. Indeed, it is He who is the Knowing, the Wise. My Lord, You have given me [something] of sovereignty and taught me of the interpretation of dreams. Creator of the heavens and earth, You are my protector in this world and in the Hereafter. Cause me to die in submission to You and join me with the righteous."
12:102 - 103, Qur'an
[So] that is from the news of the unseen which We reveal, to you. And you were not with them when they put together their plan while they conspired. And most of the people, although you strive [for it], are not believers.
[For] Joseph had already come to you before with clear proofs, but you remained in doubt of that which he brought to you, until when he died, you said, "Never will God send a messenger after him." Thus does God leave astray he who is a transgressor and skeptic.
Isaiah 63:11, Torah
Then He remembered the days of old, Moses, [and] His people, [saying], "Where [is] He who brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of His flock? Where [is] He who put His Holy Spirit within him?"
Exodus 3:9 - 10, Torah
[God said,] "Now therefore, behold, the cry of the Children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression whereby the Egyptians oppress them. Come now therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh, that you may bring forth My people, the Children of Israel out of Egypt."
7:104 - 105, Qur'an
[So] Moses said, "O Pharaoh, I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds [who is] obligated not to say about God except the truth. I have come to you with clear evidence from your Lord, so send with me the Children of Israel."
[But] no one believed Moses, except some youths among his people, for fear of Pharaoh and his establishment that they would persecute them. And indeed, Pharaoh was haughty within the land, and indeed, he was of the transgressors.
Indeed, Pharaoh exalted himself in the land and made its people into factions, oppressing a sector among them, slaughtering their [newborn] sons and keeping their females alive. Indeed, he was of the corrupters.
[For] when [Moses] brought them the truth from Us, they said, "Kill the sons of those who have believed with him and keep their women alive." But the plan of the disbelievers is not except in error.
Exodus 14:28, Torah
[Whereby] the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, [and] all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.
[So recall, O Children of Israel, that] We saved you from the people of Pharaoh, [who were] afflicting you with the worst torment - killing your sons and keeping your women alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord.
7:152 - 153, Qur'an
[So] indeed, those who took the calf [for worship] will obtain anger from their Lord and humiliation in the life of this world, and thus do We recompense the inventors [of falsehood]. But those who committed misdeeds and then repented after them and believed, indeed your Lord, thereafter, is Forgiving and Merciful.
And We had certainly given Moses the Scripture, but it came under disagreement. And if not for a word that preceded from your Lord, it would have been judged between them. And indeed they are, concerning the Qur'an, in disquieting doubt.
5:20 - 21, Qur'an
[So remember] when Moses said to his people, "O my people, remember the favor of God upon you when He appointed among you prophets and made you possessors and gave you that which He had not given anyone among the worlds. O my people, enter the Holy Land which God has assigned to you and do not turn back [from fighting in God's cause] and [thus] become in loss."
[So] two men from those who feared [to disobey], upon whom God had bestowed favor, said, "Enter upon them through the gate, for when you have entered it, you will be predominant. And trust in God, if you should be believers."
Numbers 14:6 - 9, Torah
[So] Joshua, the son of Nun, and Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, [who were] of those who searched the land, rent their clothes. And they spoke to all the company of the Children of Israel, saying, "The land, which we passed through to search it, [is] an exceedingly good land. If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land, and give it to us; a land which flows with milk and honey. Only do not rebel against the Lord, neither fear the people of the land; for they [are] bread for us, their defense has departed from them, and the Lord [is] with us, do not fear them."
Deuteronomy 1:26 - 27, Torah
Notwithstanding you would not go up, but rebelled against the commandment of the Lord your God. And you murmured in your tents, and said, "Because the Lord hated us, He has brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us."
Deuteronomy 1:29 - 30, Torah
Then I [Moses] said to you, "Do not dread, neither be afraid of them. The Lord your God who goes before you, He will fight for you, according to all that He did for you in Egypt before your eyes."
5:25 - 26, Qur'an
[So Moses] said, "My Lord, indeed I do not possess except myself and my brother, so part us from the defiantly disobedient people." [God] said, "Then indeed, it is forbidden to them for forty years [in which] they will wander throughout the land. So do not grieve over the defiantly disobedient people.
Deuteronomy 34:9, Torah
And Joshua, the son of Nun, was full of the Spirit of Wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him, and the Children of Israel listened to him, and did as the Lord commanded Moses.
Have you not considered the assembly of the Children of Israel after Moses when they said to a prophet of theirs, "Send to us a king, and we will fight in the way of God"? [Samuel] said, "Would you perhaps refrain from fighting if fighting was prescribed for you?" They said, "And why should we not fight in the cause of God when we have been driven out from our homes and from our children?"
1 Samuel 9:15 - 16, Torah
[Then] the Lord had told Samuel in his ear a day before Saul came, saying, "Tomorrow I will send you a man out of the land of Benjamin about this time, and you will anoint him [to be] captain over My people Israel, that he may save My people out of the hand of the Philistines, for I have looked upon My people, because their cry has come to Me."
1 Samuel 9:21, Torah
[But] Saul answered and said, "[Am] I not a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel? And my family, the least of all the families of the tribe of Benjamin? Why then do you speak so to me?"
1 Samuel 10:6 - 7, Torah
[So Samuel said to Saul,] "The Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them, and will be turned into another man. And let it be, when these signs are brought to you, [that] you do as occasion serves you; for God [is] with you."
1 Samuel 10:9 - 10, Torah
And it was [so], that when [Saul] had turned his back to go from Samuel, God gave him another heart, and all those signs came to pass that day. And when they came there to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them.
And [so] their prophet [Samuel] said to them, "Indeed, God has sent to you Saul as a king." [But] they said, "How can he have kingship over us while we are more worthy of kingship than him and he has not been given any measure of wealth?" He said, "Indeed, God has chosen him over you and has increased him abundantly in knowledge and stature. And God gives His sovereignty to whom He wills. And God is all-Encompassing [in favor] and Knowing -
1 Samuel 12:24 - 25, Torah
[So] fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart, for consider what great [things] He has done for you. But if you will still do wickedly, you will be consumed, both you and your king."
1 Samuel 13:4, Torah
All Israel heard it said [that] Saul had struck a garrison of the Philistines, and [that] Israel also was abhorred by the Philistines. And the people were called together after Saul to Gilgal.
1 Samuel 13:5, Torah
And [so] the Philistines gathered themselves together to fight with Israel, thirty thousand chariots, and six thousand horsemen, and people as the sand which [is] on the sea shore in multitude, and they came up, and pitched in Michmash, eastward from Bethaven.
1 Samuel 13:6, Torah
[But] when the men of Israel saw that they were in a strait, (for the people were distressed,) then the people hid themselves in caves, and in thickets, and in rocks, and in high places, and in pits.
[For] what is [the matter] with you that you fight not in the cause of God and [for] the oppressed among men, women, and children who say, "Our Lord, take us out of this city of oppressive people and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself a helper?
22:38 - 39, Qur'an
[So] indeed, God defends those who have believed. Indeed, God does not like everyone treacherous and ungrateful. Permission [to fight] has been given to those who are being fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, God is competent to give them victory -
1 Samuel 14:6, Torah
And [so] Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, "Come, and let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised [in heart], it may be that the Lord will work for us, for [there is] no restraint to the Lord to save by many or by few."
1 Samuel 14:11 - 12, Torah
[So] both of them discovered themselves to the garrison of the Philistines, and the Philistines said, "Behold, the Hebrews come forth out of the holes where they had hid themselves." And the men of the garrison answered Jonathan and his armorbearer, and said, "Come up to us, and we will show you a thing." And Jonathan said to his armorbearer, "Come up after me, for the Lord has delivered them into the hand of Israel."
1 Samuel 14:13 - 14, Torah
And [so] Jonathan climbed up upon his hands and upon his feet, and his armorbearer after him, and [the Philistines] fell before Jonathan; and his armorbearer slew after him. And that first slaughter, which Jonathan and his armorbearer made, was about twenty men, within as it were a half acre of land, [which] a yoke [of oxen might plow].
1 Samuel 14:22, Torah
[Then] likewise, all the men of Israel who had hid themselves in Mount Ephraim, [when] they heard that the Philistines fled, even they also followed hard after them in the battle.
And their words were not but that they said, "Our Lord, forgive us our sins and the excess [committed] in our affairs and plant firmly our feet and give us victory over the disbelieving people."
1 Samuel 14:47 - 48, Torah
So Saul took the kingdom over Israel, and fought against all his enemies on every side, against Moab, and against the children of Ammon, and against Edom, and against the kings of Zobah, and against the Philistines, and wherever he turned himself, he vexed [them]. And he gathered a host, and struck the Amalekites, and delivered Israel out of the hands of those who spoiled them.
Acts 13:22, Gospel
And when He had removed [Saul], He raised up to them David to be their king; to whom He also gave testimony, and said, "I have found David, the [son] of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will fulfill all My will."
1 Samuel 17:1 - 4, Torah
Now the Philistines gathered their armies together to battle, and had gathered together at Shochoh, which [belongs] to Judah, and pitched between Shochoh and Azekah, in Ephesdammim. And Saul and the men of Israel had gathered together, and pitched by the valley of Elah, and set the battle in array against the Philistines. And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side, and [there was] a valley between them. And a champion went out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height [was] six cubits and a span.
1 Samuel 17:10 - 11, Torah
And the Philistine said, "I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together." [But] when Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed, and greatly afraid.
1 Samuel 17:26, Torah
[But] David spoke to the men who stood by him, saying, "What will be done to the man who kills this Philistine, and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who [is] this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?"
1 Samuel 17:43 - 44, Torah
[But] the Philistine said to David, "[Am] I a dog, that you come to me with staves?" And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. And the Philistine said to David, "Come to me, and I will give your flesh to the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field."
1 Samuel 17:45 - 47, Torah
Then David said to the Philistine, "You come to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand; and I will strike you, and take your head from you; and I will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day to the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly will know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear, for the battle [is] the Lord's, and He will give you into our hands."
So they defeated them by permission of God, and David killed Goliath, and God gave him the kingship and prophethood and taught him from that which He willed. And if it were not for God checking [some] people by means of others, the earth would have been corrupted, but God is full of bounty to the worlds.
Psalms 148:7 - 10, Torah
[We said,] "Praise the Lord from the earth, you dragons, and all deeps. Fire, and hail; snow, and vapor; stormy wind fulfilling His word. Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars. Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl."
38:18 - 20, Qur'an
[So] indeed, We subjected the mountains [to praise] with him, exalting [God] in the [late] afternoon and [after] sunrise. And the birds were assembled, all with him repeating [praises]. And We strengthened his kingdom and gave him wisdom and discernment in speech -
2 Samuel 23:2 - 3, Torah
[And thus David said,] "The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, and His word [was] in my tongue. The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spoke to me, 'He who rules over men [must be] just, ruling in the fear of God.'"
[And We said,] "O David, indeed We have made you a successor upon the earth, so judge between the people in truth and do not follow [your own] desire, as it will lead you astray from the way of God.'" Indeed, those who go astray from the way of God will have a severe punishment for having forgotten the Day of Account.
[And thus] cursed were those who disbelieved among the Children of Israel by the tongue of David and of Jesus, the son of Mary. That was because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed.
Psalms 69:23 - 25, Torah
Let their eyes be darkened, that they do not see; and make their loins continually shake. Pour out Your indignation upon them, and let Your wrathful anger take hold of them. Let their habitation be desolate; [and] let none dwell in their tents.
2:40 - 41, Qur'an
[So] O Children of Israel, remember My favor which I have bestowed upon you and fulfill My covenant [upon you] that I will fulfill your covenant [from Me], and be afraid of [only] Me. And believe in what I have sent down confirming that which is [already] with you, and be not the first to disbelieve in it. And do not exchange My signs for a small price, and fear [only] Me.
So We [had thereby] responded to him, and We gave to him John, and amended for him his wife. Indeed, they used to hasten to good deeds and supplicate Us in hope and fear, and they were to Us humbly submissive.
So [remember when] the angels called him while he was standing in prayer in the chamber, "Indeed, God gives you good tidings of John, confirming a word from God and [who will be] honorable, abstaining [from women], and a prophet from among the righteous."
19:12 - 15, Qur'an
[God] said, "O John, take the Scripture with determination." And [so] We gave him judgement [while yet] a boy, and affection from Us and purity, and he was fearing of God and dutiful to his parents, and he was not a disobedient tyrant. And peace be upon him the day he was born and the day he dies and the Day he is raised alive.
*Luke 1:15 - 17, Gospel
[For] he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and will drink neither wine or strong drink; and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb. And he will turn many of the Children of Israel to the Lord their God. And he will go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord [God].
*Malachi 4:5 - 6, Torah
[For God said,] "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the Lord. And he will turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, unless I come and strike the earth with a curse."
*Malachi 3:1, Torah
[For] behold, I will send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me, and the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom you delight in, behold, he will come," the Lord of hosts says.
Matthew 11:16 - 18, Gospel
[And thus] to what will I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the markets, and calling to their fellows, and saying, 'We have piped to you, and you have not danced; we have mourned you, and you have not lamented.' For John came neither eating or drinking, and they say, 'He has a devil.'
Luke 7:34 - 35, Gospel
The Son of man has come eating and drinking; and you say, 'Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!' But wisdom is justified of all her children."
3:35 - 36, Qur'an
[And remember] when the wife of 'Imran said, "My Lord, indeed I have pledged to You what is in my womb, consecrated, so accept this from me. Indeed, You are the Hearing, the Knowing." But when she delivered her, she said, "My Lord, I have delivered a female." And God was most knowing of what she delivered, and the male is not like the female. "And I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her in You and [for] her descendants from Satan, the expelled [from the mercy of God]."
So her Lord accepted her with good acceptance and caused her to grow in a good manner and put her in the care of Zacharias. Every time Zacharias entered upon her in the prayer chamber, he found with her provision. He said, "O Mary, from where is this [coming] to you?" She said, "It is from God. Indeed, God provides for whom He wills without account."
19:16 - 17, Qur'an
And remember in the Book [the story of] Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place toward the east. And she took, in seclusion from them, a screen. Then We sent to her Our Spirit [Gabriel], and he represented himself to her as a well-proportioned man.
Luke 1:46 - 49, Gospel
[So] Mary said, "My soul does magnify the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has regarded the low estate of His handmaiden, for, behold, from henceforth all generations will call me blessed. For He who is mighty has done to me great things; and holy [is] His name."
[So beware the Day] when God will say, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, 'Take me and my mother as gods besides God?'" He will say, "Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.
19:30 - 33, Qur'an
[So Jesus] said [in the cradle], "Indeed, I am the servant of God. He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and charity as long as I remain alive. And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant. And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the Day I am raised alive."
Luke 2:28 - 32, Gospel
[So Simeon] took [Jesus] up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, "Lord [God], now let Your servant depart in peace, according to Your word. For my eyes have seen Your salvation, which You have prepared before the face of all people; a light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel."
*Romans 15:10 - 12, Gospel
[So] rejoice, you Gentiles, with His people. And again, "Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles; and laud him, all you people." And again, Isaiah says, "There will be a root of Jesse, and he who will rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him will the Gentiles trust -"
Isaiah 11:2 - 5, Torah
And the Spirit of the Lord will rest upon him, the Spirit of Wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of Counsel and might, the Spirit of Knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; and will make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord, and he will not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears. But he will judge the poor with righteousness, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth, and he will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked. And righteousness will be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness, the girdle of his reins.
*Matthew 12:17 - 18, Gospel
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, "Behold My servant, whom I have chosen; My beloved, in whom My soul is well pleased, I will put My Spirit upon him, and he will show judgement to the Gentiles."
Matthew 12:25 - 28, Gospel
And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand? And if I by Baalzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast [them] out? Therefore they will be your judges. But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you."
[So] certainly did their messengers come to them with clear proofs, but they were not to believe in that which they had denied before. Thus does God seal over the hearts of the disbelievers.
Luke 4:17 - 18, Gospel
And the book of the prophet Isaiah was delivered to [Jesus] there. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, "The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because He has anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are bruised -
Isaiah 61:3, Torah
To appoint to those who mourn in Zion, to give beauty to them for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.
Isaiah 61:10, Torah
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul will be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks [himself] with ornaments, and as a bride adorns [herself] with her jewels."
Luke 4:20 - 21, Gospel
And he closed the book, and gave [it] again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all those who were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say to them, "This day this Scripture is fulfilled in your ears."
Luke 4:28 - 29, Gospel
And all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him to the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.
[So be warned of the Day] when God will say, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, remember My favor upon you and upon your mother when I supported you with the Holy Spirit and you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and [remember] when I taught you writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you designed from clay [what was] like the form of a bird with My permission, then you breathed into it, and it became a bird with My permission; and you healed the blind and the leper with My permission; and when you brought forth the dead with My permission; and when I restrained the Children of Israel from [killing] you when you came to them with clear proofs and those who disbelieved among them said, "This is not but obvious magic."
[So] if they deny you [O Muhammad] - then already have those before them denied. Their messengers came to them with clear proofs and written ordinances and with the enlightening Scripture.
16:102 - 105, Qur'an
[For] the Holy Spirit has brought it down from your Lord in truth to make firm those who believe and as guidance and good tidings to those in submission [to God]." And We certainly know that they say, "It is only a human being who teaches the prophet." The tongue of the one they refer to is foreign, and this Qur'an is [in] a clear Arabic language. [But] indeed, those who do not believe in the verses of God - God will not guide them, and for them is a painful punishment. They only invent falsehood who do not believe in the verses of God, and it is those who are the liars.
Zechariah 7:12, Torah
[For] they made their hearts [as] an adamant stone, unless they should hear the law, and the words which the Lord of hosts has sent in His Spirit by the former prophets, therefore a great wrath came from the Lord of hosts.
2:89 - 90, Qur'an
[For] when there came to them a Book from God confirming that which was with them, although before they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieved - but [then] when there came to them that which they recognized, they disbelieved in it; so the curse of God will be upon the disbelievers. How wretched is that for which they sold their souls - that they would disbelieve in what God has revealed through [their] outrage that God would send down His favor upon whom He wills from among His servants. So they returned having [earned] wrath upon wrath. And for the disbelievers is a humiliating punishment.
[For] We do not send the messengers except as bringers of good tidings and warners. And those who disbelieve dispute by [using] falsehood to [attempt to] invalidate thereby the truth and have taken My verses, and that of which they are warned, in ridicule.
33:39 - 40, Qur'an
[For God loves] those who convey the messages of God and fear Him and do not fear anyone but God. And sufficient is God as Accountant. [And] Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the messenger of God and last of the prophets. And ever is God, of all things, Knowing.
38:12 - 14, Qur'an
[For] the people of Noah denied before them, and [the tribe of] 'Aad and Pharaoh, the owner of stakes, and [the tribe of] Thamud and the people of Lot and the companions of the thicket. Those are the companies. Each of them denied the messengers, so My penalty was justified.
3:84 - 85, Qur'an
[So] say, "We have believed in God and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the [twelve] tribes [of Israel], and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are submitting to Him." And whoever desires other than submission [to God] as religion - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among those in loss.
[Book of Enoch 90:40 - 41], Torah
[Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah said,] "This is the vision which I saw while I was asleep, and I woke up, blessed the Lord of righteousness, and ascribed glory to Him. But after this I wept bitterly and my tears did not stop until I could not endure it. When I looked, they ran down, because of what I saw, for everything will come to pass and be fulfilled, and all the deeds of men, in their order, were shown to me."
[Book of Enoch 87:3 - 4], Torah
[Whereby,] those three, who came out last, took hold of me by my hand and raised me from the generations of the earth, and lifted me up onto a high place, and showed me a tower high above the earth, and all the hills were lower. And one said to me, "Remain here until you have seen everything which is coming upon these elephants, and camels, and asses, and upon the stars, and upon all the bulls."
[Book of Enoch 85:2 - 3], Torah
[So] Enoch raised his voice and said to his son Methuselah, "To you I speak, my son. Hear my words, and incline your ear to the dream vision of your father. Before I took your mother, Edna, I saw a vision on my bed, and behold, a bull came out of the earth [Adam], and that bull was white. And, after it, a heifer came out [Eve], and with the heifer came two bullocks, and one of them was black [Cain] and the other red [Abel].
[Book of Enoch 89:1 - 3], Torah
[And one, Noah] was born a bull, but became a man, and built for himself a large vessel, and dwelt on it, and three bulls went with him in that vessel, and they were covered over. And, again, I raised my eyes to heaven and saw a high roof with seven water channels on it, and those channels discharged much water into an enclosure. And I looked again, and behold, springs opened on the floor of that large enclosure, and water began to bubble up, and to rise above the floor. And I looked at that enclosure until its whole floor was covered by water.
[Book of Enoch 89:5 - 6], Torah
And all the bulls of that enclosure were gathered together, until I saw how they sank, and were swallowed up, and destroyed, in that water. And that vessel floated on the water, but all the bulls, elephants, camels, and asses sank to the bottom, together with all the animals, so that I could not see them. And they were unable to get out, but were destroyed, and sank into the depths.
[Book of Enoch 89:7 - 8], Torah
And, again, I looked at that vision until those water channels were removed from that high roof, and the chasms of the earth were made level, and other abysses were opened. And the water began to run down into them, until the earth became visible, and that vessel settled on the earth [Mount Judiyy] and the darkness departed, and light appeared.
[Book of Enoch 89:10], Torah
And they began to beget wild animals and birds, so that there arose from them every kind of species, lions, tigers, wolves, dogs, hyenas, wildboars, foxes, badgers, pigs, falcons, vultures, kites, eagles, and ravens. But amongst them was born a white bull [Abraham].
[Book of Enoch 89:11 - 12] Torah
And they began to bite one another but that white bull [Abraham], which was born amongst them, begat a wild ass [Ishmael] and a white bull [Isaac] with it, and the wild asses increased. But that bull [Isaac], which was born from it, begat a black wild boar [Esau] and a white sheep [Jacob], and that wild-boar begat many boars and that sheep [Jacob] begat twelve sheep [Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, Benjamin, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher].
[Book of Enoch 89:13], Torah
And when those twelve sheep [the Children of Israel] had grown, they handed one of their number [Joseph] over to the asses, and those in turn, handed that sheep [Joseph] over to the wolves [the Egyptians]; and that sheep grew up amongst the wolves.
[Book of Enoch 89:15], Torah
And the wolves [the Egyptians] began to make them afraid, and they oppressed them [the Children of Israel] until they made away with their young, and then they threw their young into a river with much water; but those sheep began to cry out because of their young, and to complain to their Lord.
[Book of Enoch 89:16 - 17], Torah
But a sheep [Moses], which had been saved from the wolves [the Egyptians], fled and escaped to the wild asses. And I saw the sheep moaning and crying out, and petitioning the Lord with all their power, until that Lord of the sheep came down at the call of the sheep, from a high room, and came to them, and looked at them. And He called that sheep [Moses], which had fled from the wolves, and spoke to it about the wolves, that it should warn them that they should not touch the sheep [the Children of Israel].
[Book of Enoch 89:18], Torah
And the sheep [Moses] went to the wolves [the Egyptians], in accordance with the word of the Lord, and another sheep [Aaron] met that sheep and went with it. And the two of them together, entered the assembly of those wolves, spoke to them, and warned them that from then on, they should not touch those sheep [the Children of Israel].
[Book of Enoch 89:19 - 20], Torah
And after this, I saw the wolves [the Egyptians], how they acted even more harshly towards the sheep [the Children of Israel], with all their power, and the sheep called out. And their Lord came to the sheep and began to beat those wolves; and the wolves began to moan, but the sheep became silent and from then on they did not cry out.
[Book of Enoch 89:21 - 22], Torah
And I looked at the sheep [the Children of Israel] until they escaped from the wolves [the Egyptians]; but the eyes of the wolves were blinded, and those wolves went out in pursuit of the sheep with all their forces. And the Lord of the sheep went with them, as He led them, and all His sheep followed Him; and His Face was glorious, and His appearance terrible and magnificent.
[Book of Enoch 89:23 - 24], Torah
But the wolves [the Egyptians] began to pursue those sheep [the Children of Israel] until they met them by a stretch of water [the Red Sea]. And that stretch of water was divided, and the water stood on one side, and on the other, before them. And their Lord as He led them, stood between them and the wolves.
[Book of Enoch 89:25 - 27], Torah
And while those wolves [the Egyptians] had not yet seen the sheep [the Children of Israel], they went into the middle of that stretch of water [the Red Sea]; but the wolves pursued the sheep, and those wolves ran after them into that stretch of water. But when they saw the Lord of the sheep, they turned to flee in front of Him; but that stretch of water flowed together again, and suddenly resumed its natural form, and the water swelled up, and rose until it covered those wolves. And I looked until all the wolves that had pursued those sheep were destroyed and drowned.
[Book of Enoch 89:28 - 29], Torah
But the sheep [the Children of Israel] escaped that water, and went to a desert [the wilderness], where there was neither water, nor grass. And they began to open their eyes and see, and I saw the Lord of the sheep pasturing them, and giving them water and grass [manna and quails], and that sheep [Moses] going and leading them. And that sheep went up to the summit of a high rock [Mount Sinai] and the Lord of the sheep sent it to them.
[Book of Enoch 89:32 - 33], Torah
And that sheep [Moses], which led them, again went up to the summit of that rock [Mount Sinai]; and the sheep began to be blinded, and go astray from the path which had been shown to them, but that sheep did not know. And the Lord of the sheep was extremely angry with them, and that sheep knew, and went down from the summit of the rock, and came to the sheep, and found the majority of them, with their eyes blinded, and going astray from His path [by worshiping a molten calf].
[Book of Enoch 89:40 - 41], Torah
And I looked until the sheep came to a good place and a pleasant and glorious land, and I looked until those sheep were satisfied. And that house was in the middle of them in that green and pleasant land. And sometimes their eyes were opened, and sometimes blinded, until another sheep rose up [Samuel], led them, and brought them all back. And their eyes were opened.
[Book of Enoch 89:42 - 43], Torah
And the dogs, and the foxes, and the wild boars, began to devour those sheep until the Lord of the sheep raised up a ram [Saul] from among them, which led them. And that ram [Saul] began to butt those dogs, foxes, and wild boars, on one side and on the other until it had destroyed them all.
[Book of Enoch 89:45 - 46], Torah
And the Lord of the sheep sent the sheep to another sheep [David] and raised it up to be a ram and to lead the sheep in place of that sheep [Saul] which had renounced its glory. And it went to it, and spoke with it alone, and raised up that ram [David], and made it the prince and leader of the sheep. And, during all this, those dogs oppressed the sheep.
[Book of Enoch 89:48], Torah
And that second ram [David] rose up and led the small sheep, and that ram begat many sheep, and fell asleep. And a small sheep [Solomon] became a ram, in place of it, and became the prince and leader of those sheep.
[Book of Enoch 89:51], Torah
And I saw those sheep again, how they went astray [the lost sheep of the House of Israel], and walked in many ways, and left that house of theirs; and the Lord of the sheep called some of the sheep, and sent them to the sheep, but the sheep began to kill them.
[Book of Enoch 89:52 - 53], Torah
But one of them [Jesus] was saved, and was not killed, and it sprang away and cried out against the sheep. And they wished to kill it but the Lord of the sheep saved it from the hands of the sheep, brought it up to me, and made it stay. And He sent many other sheep [the disciples] to those sheep, to testify to them and to lament over them.
[Book of Enoch 89:54], Torah
And after this, I saw how when they left the house of the Lord of the sheep, and His tower, they went astray in everything, and their eyes were blinded. And I saw how the Lord of the sheep worked much slaughter among them, in their pastures, until those sheep invited that slaughter, and betrayed His place.
[Book of Enoch 89:66 - 67], Torah
And the lions and the tigers [the Gentiles] devoured and swallowed up the majority of those sheep, and the wild boars devoured with them; and they burnt down that tower and demolished that house [Jerusalem]. And I was extremely sad about that tower because that house of the sheep had been demolished; and after that I was unable to see whether those sheep went into that house.
[Book of Enoch 90:2 - 3], Torah
And after this, I saw in the vision, all the birds of the heaven coming, the eagles, the vultures, and the kites, and the ravens [the people of Mecca]. But the eagles led all the birds, and they began to devour those sheep, to peck out their eyes, and to devour their flesh. And the sheep cried out because the birds devoured their flesh. And I cried out and lamented in my sleep because of that shepherd who pastured the sheep.
[Book of Enoch 90:8 - 9], Torah
And I saw in the vision, how the ravens [the people of Mecca] flew upon those lambs, and took one of those lambs, and dashed the sheep in pieces and devoured them. And I looked until horns came up on those lambs but the ravens cast their horns down. And I looked until a big horn grew on one of those sheep [Muhammad], and their eyes were opened.
[Book of Enoch 90:11], Torah
And, besides all this, those eagles, and vultures, and ravens, and kites [the people of Mecca], were still continually tearing the sheep in pieces, and flying upon them and devouring them. And the sheep were silent but the rams lamented and cried out. And those ravens battled and fought with it [Muhammad], and wished to make away with its horn, but they did not prevail against it.
[Book of Enoch 90:13], Torah
And I looked at them until the shepherds and the eagles, and those vultures, and kites, came and cried to the ravens that they should dash the horn of that ram [Muhammad] in pieces. And they fought and battled with it, and it fought with them and cried out so that its help [the angels] might come to it.
[Book of Enoch 90:16], Torah
All the eagles and vultures and ravens and kites [the people of Mecca], gathered together and brought with them all the wild sheep, and they all came together and helped one another in order to dash that horn of the ram [Muhammad] in pieces.
[Book of Enoch 90:19], Torah
And I looked until a big sword was given to the sheep [Muhammad and the believers]. And the sheep went out against all the wild animals to kill them [the people of Mecca]. And all the animals, and birds of the heaven, fled before them."
[Book of Enoch 104:10 - 105:1], Torah
And now I know this mystery; that many sinners will alter and distort the words of truth, and speak evil words, and lie, and concoct great fabrications, and write books in their own words. But when they write my words exactly in their languages, and do not alter or omit anything from my words, but write everything exactly, everything that I testified about before; then I know another mystery, that books will be given to the righteous and wise and will be a source of joy and truth and much wisdom. And books will be given to them, and they will believe in them and rejoice over them; and all the righteous who have learned from them all the ways of truth will be glad. And in those days, says the Lord, they shall call and testify to the sons of the earth about the wisdom in them. Show it to them for you are their leaders and the rewards will be over all the earth.
