Proverbs 4:18-19 Updated American Standard Version (UASV) 18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day. 19 The way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know over what they stumble.

The Book of Leviticus

Third book of the OT containing instructions for priests and worship. The Hebrew name of Leviticus comes from the first word in the book, wayyiqraʾ, “and he called.” In the later rabbinic works and similarly in the Syuriac translation, the Peshitta, the book was called torat hohanim, “book of the priests.” The English title comes from the Latin Vulgate translation of the Greek term Leuitikon. This is an adjectival form, “Levitical,” which thus means “that which concerns the priests.”
