James 3:15

This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.

ഇതു ഉയരത്തിൽനിന്നു വരുന്ന ജ്ഞാനമല്ല, ഭൌമികവും പ്രാകൃതവും പൈശാചികവും ആയതത്രേ.

Joshua 10:30

And the LORD also delivered it and its king into the hand of Israel; he struck it and all the people who were in it with the edge of the sword. He let none remain in it, but did to its king as he had done to the king of Jericho.

യഹോവ അതിനെയും അതിലെ രാജാവിനെയും യിസ്രായേലിന്റെ കയ്യിൽ ഏല്പിച്ചു; അവർ അതിനെയും അതിലുള്ള എല്ലാവരെയും വാളിന്റെ വായ്ത്തലയാൽ സംഹരിച്ചു; അവിടെ ഒരുത്തനെയും ശേഷിപ്പിച്ചില്ല; യെരീഹോരാജാവിനോടു ചെയ്തതുപോലെ അവർ അവിടത്തെ രാജാവിനോടും ചെയ്തു.

Exodus 33:11

So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle.

ഒരുത്തൻ തന്റെ സ്നേഹിതനോടു സംസാരിക്കുന്നതു പോലെ യഹോവ മോശെയോടു അഭിമുഖമായി സംസാരിച്ചു. പിന്നെ അവൻ പാളയത്തിലേക്കു മടങ്ങിവന്നു; അവന്റെ ശുശ്രൂഷക്കാരനായ നൂന്റെ പുത്രനായ യോശുവ എന്ന ബാല്യക്കാരനോ കൂടാരത്തെ വിട്ടുപിരിയാതിരുന്നു.
