Genesis 2:1-25

1 And heaven* and earth* and all their array* were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and he sanctified* it, because on it he rested from all his work of creating that there was to do.* 4 These are the generations* of heaven* and earth* when they were created, in the day that Yahweh God made earth and heaven*5 before any plant of the field was* on earth, and before any plant of the field* had sprung up, because Yahweh God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no human being to cultivate the ground, 6 but a stream would rise from the earth and water the whole face of the ground— 7 when* Yahweh God formed the man* of dust from the ground, and he blew into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. 8 And Yahweh God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he put the man* whom he had formed. 9 And Yahweh God caused to grow every tree that was pleasing to the sight and good for food. And the tree of life was in the midst of the garden, along with* the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10 Now* a river flowed out from Eden that watered the garden, and from there it diverged and became four branches. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon. It went around all the land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stones are there.) 13 And the name of the second is Gihon. It went around all the land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third is Tigris. It flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. 15 And Yahweh God took the man* and set him in the garden of Eden to cultivate it and to keep it. 16 And Yahweh God commanded the man,* saying, "From every tree of the garden you may freely eat,* 17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat* from it you shall surely die."* 18 Then* Yahweh God said, "it is not good that the man* is alone. I will make for him a helper as his counterpart."* 19 And out of the ground Yahweh God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky,* and he brought each to the man* to see what he would call it. And whatever the man* called that living creature was its name. 20 And the man* gave names* to every domesticated animal and to the birds of heaven* and to all the wild animals.* But for the man there was not found a helper as his counterpart.* 21 And Yahweh God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man.* While* he slept, he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh where it had been.* 22 And Yahweh God fashioned the rib which he had taken from the man* into a woman and brought her to the man.* 23 And the man* said, 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall cling to his wife, and they shall be as one flesh. 25 And the man* and his wife, both of them, were naked, and they were not ashamed.

Therefore what God has joined together, man must not separate."

46 For if you had believed Moses, you would believe me, for that one wrote about me. 47 But if you do not believe that one's writings, how will you believe my words?"

Romans 5:12-21

12 Because of this, just as sin entered into the world through one man, and death through sin, so also death spread to all people because all sinned. 13 For until the law, sin was in the world, but sin is not charged to one's account when there* is no law. 14 But death reigned from Adam until Moses even over those who did not sin in the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of the one who is to come. 15 But the gift is not like the trespass*, for if by the trespass of the one, the many died, by much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, multiply to the many. 16 And the gift is not as through the one who sinned, for on the one hand, judgment from the one sin led to condemnation, but the gift, from many trespasses, led to justification. 17 For if by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through the one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ. 18 Consequently therefore, as through one trespass came condemnation to all people, so also through one righteous deed came justification of life to all people. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man, the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one, the many will be made righteous. 20 Now the law came in as a side issue, in order that the trespass could increase, but where sin increased, grace was present in greater abundance, 21 so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 1:20-27

20 For from the creation of the world, his invisible attributes, both his eternal power and deity, are discerned clearly, being understood in the things created, so that they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their reasoning, and their senseless hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God with the likeness of an image of mortal human beings and birds and quadrupeds and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them over in the desires of their hearts to immorality, that their bodies would be dishonored among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God with a lie, and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed for eternity. Amen. 26 Because of this, God gave them over to degrading passions, for their females exchanged the natural relations for those contrary to nature, 27 and likewise also the males, abandoning the natural relations with the female, were inflamed in their desire toward one another, males with males committing the shameless deed, and receiving in themselves the penalty that was necessary for their error.

2 Peter 3:3-6

3 above all knowing this, that in the last days scoffers will come with scoffing, following according to their own desires 4 and saying, "Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since* the fathers fell asleep, all things have continued just as they have been from the beginning of creation." 5 For when* they maintain this, it escapes their notice that the heavens existed long ago and the earth held together out of water and through water by the word of God, 6 by means of which things the world that existed at that time was destroyed by* being inundated with water.

Hebrews 11:1-3

1 Now faith is the realization of what is hoped for, the proof of things not seen. 2 For by this the people of old were approved. 3 By faith we understand the worlds were created by the word of God, in order that what is seen did not come into existence from what is visible.
