Jeremiah 4:23

23 I looked on the earth, and, behold! It was without form and void; and to the heavens, and they had no light.

Genesis 1:1-11:32

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth; 2 and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters, 3 then God said, Let light be! And there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good, and God separated between the light and darkness. 5 And God called the light, Day. And He called the darkness, Night. And there was evening, and there was morning the first day. 6 And God said, Let an expanse be in the midst of the waters, and let it divide between the waters and the waters. 7 And God made the expanse, and He separated between the waters which were under the expanse and the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so. 8 And God called the expanse, Heavens. And there was evening, and there was morning the second day. 9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected to one place, and let the dry land appear. And it was so. 10 And God called the dry land, Earth. And He called the collection of the waters, Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so. 12 And the earth bore tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed according to its kind, and the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning the third day. 14 And God said, Let luminaries be in the expanse of the heavens, to divide between the day and the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years. 15 And let them be for luminaries in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth. And it was so. 16 And God made the two great luminaries: the great luminary to rule the day, and the small luminary and the stars to rule the night. 17 And God set them in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night; and to divide between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning the fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters swarm with swarmers having a soul of life; and let the birds fly over the earth, on the face of the expanse of the heavens. 21 And God created the great sea animals, and all that creeps, having a living soul, which swarmed the waters, according to its kind; and every bird with wing according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas; and let the birds multiply in the earth. 23 And there was evening, and there was morning the fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the soul of life according to its kind: cattle, and creepers, and its beasts of the earth, according to its kind. And it was so. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to its kind, and cattle according to its kind, and all creepers of the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth. 27 And God created the man in His own image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female. 28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and over birds of the heavens, and over all beasts creeping on the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every plant seeding seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree seeding seed; it shall be food for you. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to all birds of the heavens, and to every creeper on the earth which has in it a living soul, every green plant is for food. And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning the sixth day.

Genesis 2:1-11:32

1 And the heavens and the earth were finished, and all their host. 2 And on the seventh day God completed His work which He had made And He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because He rested from all His work on it, which God had created to make. 4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created in the day that Jehovah God was making earth and heavens. 5 and every shrub of the field was not yet on the earth, and every plant of the field had not yet sprung up; for Jehovah God had not sent rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground. 6 And mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 And Jehovah God formed the man out of dust from the ground, and blew into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. 8 And Jehovah God planted a garden in Eden to the east; and He put the man whom He had formed there. 9 And out of the ground Jehovah God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food. The Tree of Life was also in the middle of the garden; also the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. 10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it was divided and became four heads. 11 The name of the first was Pishon; it is the one surrounding all the land of Havilah where gold is; 12 the gold of that land is good; there is bdellium gum resin, and the onyx stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Gihon. It is the one surrounding all the land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third river is Tigris; it is the one going east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And Jehovah God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden, to work it and to keep it. 16 And Jehovah God commanded the man, saying, You may freely eat of every tree in the garden; 17 but of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil you may not eat, for in the day that you eat of it, you shall surely die. 18 And Jehovah God said, It is not good, the man being alone. I will make a helper suited to him. 19 And Jehovah God formed every animal of the field, and every bird of the heavens out of the ground. And He brought them to the man, to see what he would call it. And all which the man might call it, each living soul, that was its name. 20 And the man called names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the heavens, and to every animal of the field. But no helper suited to him was found for a man. 21 And Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh underneath. 22 And Jehovah God formed the rib which He had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man. 23 And the man said, This now at last is bone from my bones, and flesh from my flesh. For this shall be called Woman, because this has been taken out of man. 24 Therefore, a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife and they shall become one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and they were not ashamed.

Genesis 3:1-11:32

1 And the serpent was cunning above every animal of the field which Jehovah God had made. And he said to the woman, Is it true that God has said, You shall not eat from any tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, 3 but of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God has said, You shall not eat of it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die. 4 And the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die, 5 for God knows that in the day you eat of it, your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as God, knowing good and evil. 6 And the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and the tree was desirable to make one wise. And she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 And the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed leaves of the fig tree, and made girdles for themselves. 8 And they heard the sound of Jehovah God walking up and down in the garden at the breeze of the day. And the man and his wife hid themselves from the face of Jehovah God in the middle of the trees of the garden. 9 And Jehovah God called to the man and said to him, Where are you? 10 And he said, I have heard Your sound in the garden, and I was afraid, for I am naked, and I hid myself. 11 And He said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat? 12 And the man said, The woman whom You gave to be with me, she has given to me of the tree, and I ate. 13 And Jehovah God said to the woman, What is this you have done? And the woman said, The serpent deceived me, and I ate. 14 And Jehovah God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all beasts, and above every animal of the field. You shall go on your belly, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He will bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel. 16 He said to the woman, I will greatly increase your sorrow and your conception; you shall bear sons in sorrow, and your desire shall be toward your husband; and he shall rule over you. 17 And He said to the man, Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree about which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat from it, the ground shall be cursed because of you; you shall eat of it in sorrow all the days of your life. 18 And it shall bring forth thorns and thistles for you, and you shall eat the plant of the field. 19 By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until your return to the ground. For you have been taken out of it; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return. 20 And the man called the name of his wife, Eve; because she became the mother of all living. 21 And Jehovah God made coats of skin for the man and his wife, and clothed them. 22 And Jehovah God said, Behold! The man has become as one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put forth his hand and also take from the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever, 23 Jehovah God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground out of which he was taken. 24 And He drove the man out. And He lodged the cherubs at the east of the Garden of Eden, and the flaming sword whirling around to guard the way of the Tree of Life.

Genesis 4:1-11:32

1 And the man knew his wife Eve. And she conceived and bore Cain, and said, I have gotten a man with the help of Jehovah. 2 And she continued to bear his brother, Abel. And Abel became a shepherd of flocks. And Cain became a tiller of the ground. 3 And in the end of days, it happened that Cain brought an offering to Jehovah from the fruit of the ground. 4 And Abel brought, he also, from the firstlings of his flocks, even from their fat. And Jehovah looked to Abel and to his offering. 5 And He did not look to Cain and to his offering. And Cain glowed greatly with anger, and his face fell. 6 And Jehovah said to Cain, Why have you angrily glowed, and why has your face fallen? 7 If you do well, is there not exaltation? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is toward you; but you should rule over it. 8 And Cain talked with his brother Abel. And it happened as they were in the field, Cain rose up against His brother Abel, and killed him. 9 And Jehovah said to Cain, Where is your brother Abel? And he said, I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper? 10 And He said, What have you done? The voice of the blood of your brother cries to Me from the ground. 11 And now you are cursed more than the ground which opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand. 12 When you till the ground, it will not again give its strength to you. You shall be a vagabond and a fugitive on the earth. 13 And Cain said to Jehovah, My punishment is greater than I can bear. 14 Behold! You have driven me out from the face of the earth today. And I shall be hidden from Your face. And I shall be a vagabond and a fugitive on the earth. And it will be that anyone who finds me shall kill me. 15 And Jehovah said to him, If anyone kills Cain, he shall be avenged sevenfold. And Jehovah set a mark on Cain, so that anyone who found him should not kill him. 16 And Cain went out from the presence of Jehovah. And he lived in the land of Nod, east of Eden. 17 And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city, and he called the name of the city according to the name of his son, Enoch. 18 And Irad was born to Enoch; and Irad fathered Mehujael And Mehujael fathered Methusael; and Methusael fathered Lamech. 19 And Lamech took two wives to himself: the name of the first was Adah; and the name of the second was Zillah. 20 And Adah bore Jabal; he was the father of those living in tents, and with cattle. 21 And the name of his brother was Jubal; he was the father of all those playing the harp and the organ. 22 And Zillah also bore Tubalcain, the hammerer of every engraving tool of bronze and iron. And the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah. 23 And Lamech said to his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice, you wives of Lamech; listen to my words; for I have killed a man because of my wound, and a young man because of my hurt. 24 For Cain is avenged sevenfold, and Lamech seventy seven. 25 And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son. And she called his name, Seth, for God has appointed to me another seed in place of Abel because Cain killed him. 26 And a son was also born to Seth, and he called his name, Enos. Then it was begun to call on the name of Jehovah.

Genesis 5:1-11:32

1 This is the book of the generations of Adam: In the day that God created man. He made him in the likeness of God. 2 He created them male and female, and blessed them, and called their name Adam in the day when they were created. 3 And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years and fathered a son in his own likeness, according to his image, and called his name Seth. 4 And the days of Adam after he fathered Seth were eight hundred years.

And he died. 6 And Seth lived one hundred and five years, and fathered Enos. 7 And after he fathered Enos, Seth lived eight hundred and seven years.

And he fathered sons and daughters. 27 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred and sixty nine years; and he died. 28 And Lamech lived one hundred and eighty two years and fathered a son. 29 And he called his name Noah, saying, This one shall comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands because of the ground which the Lord has cursed. 30 And after he fathered Noah, Lamech lived five hundred and ninety five years. And he fathered sons and daughters. 31 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred and seventy seven years. And he died. 32 And Noah was five hundred years old. And Noah fathered Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Genesis 6:1-11:32

1 And it came about that men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them. 2 The sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were good. And they took wives for themselves from all those whom they chose. 3 And Jehovah said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man; in their erring he is flesh. And his days shall be a hundred and twenty years. 4 The giants were in the earth in those days, and even afterwards when the sons of God came into the daughters of men, and they bore to them; they were heroes which existed from ancient time, the men of name. 5 And Jehovah saw that the evil of man was great on the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the day long. 6 And Jehovah repented that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved to His heart. 7 And Jehovah said, I will wipe off man whom I have created from the face of the earth, from man to beast, to the creeping thing and to the birds of the heavens; for I repent that I made them. 8 And Noah found grace in the eyes of Jehovah. 9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah, a righteous man, had been perfected among his family. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah fathered three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 And the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupted. For all flesh had corrupted its way on the earth. 13 And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them. And behold, I will destroy them along with the earth. 14 Make an ark of cyprus timbers for yourself. You shall make rooms in the ark; and you shall cover it with asphalt inside and out. 15 And you shall make it this way: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its breadth fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 You shall make a window in the ark, and you shall finish it above to a cubit. And you shall set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third stories. 17 And behold, I, even I, am bringing a flood of waters on the earth in order to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life from under the heavens. Everything which is on the earth shall die. 18 And I will establish My covenant with you. And you shall come into the ark, you and your sons and your wife and your sons' wives with you. 19 And you shall bring into the ark two of every kind, of every living thing of all flesh, to keep alive with you; they shall be male and female; 20 from the birds according to its kind, and from the cattle according to its kind, from every creeping thing of the ground according to its kind. Two from each shall come in to you to keep alive. 21 And take for yourself all food that is eaten, and gather to yourself. And let it be for you and for them for food. 22 And Noah did so, according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

Genesis 7:1-11:32

1 And Jehovah said to Noah You and all your house come into the ark, for I have seen you righteous before Me in this generation. 2 You shall take to yourself from every clean animal by sevens, male and female, and from the animal that is not clean by two, male and female. 3 And take of the fowl of the heavens by sevens, male and female, to keep alive seed on the face of the earth. 4 For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights and will wipe away every living substance that I have made from off the face of the earth. 5 And Noah did according to all that Jehovah commanded him. 6 Noah was a son of six hundred years, and the flood of waters was on the earth. 7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him into the ark, because of the waters of the flood. 8 And they went in to Noah into the ark, male and female of clean animals, and of animals that are not clean and of fowl, and of every thing that creeps on the earth, 9 two by two, as God had commanded Noah. they went into the ark, male and female. 10 And it was after the seven days, the waters of the flood came into being on the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, in this day all the fountains of the great deep were risen, and the windows of the heavens were opened up. 12 And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights. 13 In this same day Noah and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, went into the ark; 14 they, and every animal according to its kind, and every beast according to its kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth according to its kind; and every fowl according to its kind, every bird of every wing. 15 And they went in to Noah and to the ark, two and two of all flesh, in which is the breath of life. 16 And those going in went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him. And Jehovah shut behind him. 17 And the flood was on the earth forty days. And the waters increased, and bore up the ark, and it was lifted up above the earth. 18 And the waters prevailed, and were greatly increased on the earth. And the ark floated on the face of the waters. 19 And the waters were strong, exceedingly violent on the earth, and all the high mountains under the heavens were covered. 20 The waters grew strong, fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered. 21 And all flesh that moved on the earth died: the fowl, and cattle, and beast, and every swarming thing that swarms on the earth, and all mankind. 22 All died in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land. 23 And every living thing which was on the face of the earth was wiped away, from man to cattle, and to the creeping things, and the fowl of the heavens. And they were wiped off from the earth, and only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark. 24 And the waters were strong on the earth a hundred and fifty days.

Genesis 8:1-11:32

1 And God remembered Noah and every living thing, and all the cattle which were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. 2 And the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were stopped, and the rain from the heavens was restrained. 3 And the waters retreated from the earth, going and retreating. And the waters diminished at the end of a hundred and fifty days. 4 And in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark rested on the mountains of Ararat. 5 And the waters were going and falling until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen. 6 And it happened, at the end of forty days, even Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made. 7 And he sent out a raven, and it went out, going out and returning until the waters were dried up from off the earth. 8 He also sent out from him the dove, to see if the waters had gone down from off the face of the earth. 9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned to him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of all the earth. And he put out his hand and took her, and pulled her in to him into the ark. 10 And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark. 11 And the dove came into him in the evening. And, behold! In her mouth was a newly plucked olive leaf. So Noah knew that the waters had gone down from off the earth. 12 And he waited another seven days and sent forth the dove. And she did not return again to him any more. 13 And it happened in the six hundred and first year, at the beginning, on the first of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth. And Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked. And, behold! The face of the earth was dried. 14 And in the second month, on the twenty seventh day of the month, the earth was dry. 15 And God spoke to Noah, saying, 16 Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons and your sons' wives with you. 17 Bring out from you every living thing that is with you, of all flesh, of fowl, of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creeps on the earth; and let them swarm on the earth, and bear, and multiply on the earth. 18 And Noah went out, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons wives with him; 19 every animal, every creeping thing, and every fowl; all which creeps on the earth. They went forth out of the ark according to their families. 20 And Noah built an altar to Jehovah, and took of every clean animal, and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 And Jehovah smelled the soothing fragrance, and Jehovah said in His heart, I will never again curse the ground for the sake of man, because the imagination of the heart of man is evil from his youth. Yea, I will not again smite every living thing as I have done; 22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Genesis 9:1-11:32

1 And God blessed Noah and his sons. And He said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth. 2 And your fear and your dread shall be on all the animals of the earth, and on every bird of the heavens, on all that moves on the earth, and on all the fish of the sea. They are given into your hands. 3 Every creeping thing which is alive shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green plant. 4 But you shall not eat flesh in its life, its blood. 5 And surely the blood of your lives I will demand. At the hand of every animal I will demand it, and at the hand of man. I will demand the life of man at the hand of every man's brother. 6 Whoever sheds man's blood, his blood shall be shed by man. For He made man in the image of God. 7 And you, be fruitful and multiply. Swarm over the earth and multiply in it. 8 And God spoke to Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 9 Behold! I, even I, am establishing My covenant with you, and with your seed after you, 10 and with every living creature which is with you, among fowl, among cattle, and among every animal of the earth with you, from all that go out from the ark, to every animal of the earth. 11 And I have established My covenant with you, and all flesh shall not be cut off again by the waters of a flood; nor shall there ever again be a flood to destroy the earth. 12 And God said, This is the sign of the covenant which I am about to make between Me and you, and every living soul which is with you, for everlasting generations: 13 I have set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth. 14 And it will be when I gather the clouds on the earth, then the bow shall be seen in the clouds. 15 And I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you, and every living soul in all flesh. And the waters shall not again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 And the bow shall be in the clouds, and I shall see it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living soul, in all flesh on the earth. 17 And God said to Noah, This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth. 18 And the sons of Noah that went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And Ham is the father of Canaan. 19 These are the three sons of Noah, and the whole earth was overspread from them. 20 And Noah, a man of the ground, began and planted a vineyard. 21 And he drank from the wine, and was drunk. And he uncovered himself inside his tent. 22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father. And he told his two brothers outside. 23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment and put it on both their shoulders. And they went backward and covered the nakedness of their father, their faces backward. And they did not see the nakedness of their father. 24 And Noah awoke from his wine. And he came to know what his younger son had done to him. 25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan. He shall be a slave of slaves to his brothers. 26 And he said, Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Shem; and may Canaan be his slave. 27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall live in the tents of Shem, and Canaan shall be their slave. 28 And Noah lived three hundred and fifty years after the flood. 29 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years. And he died.

Genesis 10:1-11:32

1 And these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And sons were born to them after the flood. 2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. 3 And Gomer's sons were Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. 4 And Javan's sons were Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5 The coasts of the nations were divided by these in their lands each by his tongue, by their families, in their nations. 6 And Ham's sons were Cush, and Mizraim, and Put, and Canaan. 7 And the sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha. And Raamah's sons were Sheba and Dedan. 8 And Cush fathered Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one in the land. 9 He was a mighty hunter before Jehovah; so it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before Jehovah. 10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11 From that land he went forth to Assyria and built Nineveh, and Rehoboth the city, and Calah, 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah, which is a great city. 13 And Mizraim fathered Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim, 14 and Pathrusim, and Casluhim, who from whom came the Philistines and Caphtorim. 15 And Canaan fathered his firstborn Sidon, and Heth, 16 and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite, 17 and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite, 18 and the Arvadite and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. And afterward the families of the Canaanites were dispersed. 19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as you come to Gerar, as far as Gaza, as you go in towards Sodom and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even to Lasha. 20 These were the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their tongues, in their countries, in their nations. 21 And to Shem was born, even to him, the father of all the sons of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder. 22 The sons of Shem were Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and Lud, and Aram. 23 And Aram's sons were Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash. 24 And Arpachshad fathered Salah; and Salah fathered Eber. 25 And two sons were born to Eber; the name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother's name was Joktan. 26 And Joktan fathered Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah, 27 and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah, 28 and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba, 29 and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab. These all were the sons of Joktan. 30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as you go to Sephar, an eastern mountain. 31 These were the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their tongues, in their lands, according to their nations. 32 These were the families of the sons of Noah, by their generations, in their nations. And from these the nations were divided in the earth after the flood.

Genesis 11:1-32

1 And the whole earth was of one lip and of one speech 2 And it happened, as they pulled up stakes from the east, they found a level valley in the land of Shinar. And they lived there. 3 And each one said to his neighbor, Come, let us make brick, and burning burn them. And they had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. 4 And they said, Come, let us build a city and a tower with its head in the heavens, and make a name for ourselves, that we not be scattered on the face of all the earth. 5 And Jehovah came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of Adam had built. 6 And Jehovah said, Behold, the people is one, and the lip one to all of them, and this they are beginning to do, and now all which they have purposed to do will not be restrained from them. 7 Come, let Us go down and confuse their language so that they cannot understand one another's speech. 8 And Jehovah scattered them from there, over the face of all the earth. And they stopped building the city. 9 On account of this its name is called Babel, because Jehovah confused the language of all the earth there. And Jehovah scattered them abroad from there on the face of all the earth. 10 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was a son of a hundred years and fathered Arpachshad two years after the flood. 11 And after he fathered Arpachshad, Shem lived five hundred years. And he fathered sons and daughters. 12 And Arpachshad lived thirty five years and fathered Salah. 13 And after he fathered Salah, Arpachshad lived four hundred and three years And he fathered sons and daughters. 14 And Salah lived thirty years and fathered Eber. 15 And after he fathered Eber, Salah lived four hundred and three years. And he fathered sons and daughters. 16 And Eber lived thirty four years and fathered Peleg. 17 And after he fathered Peleg, Eber lived four hundred and thirty years. And he fathered sons and daughters. 18 And Peleg lived thirty years and fathered Reu. 19 And after he fathered Reu, Peleg lived two hundred and nine years. And he fathered sons and daughters. 20 And Reu lived thirty two years and fathered Serug. 21 And after he fathered Serug, Reu lived two hundred and seven years. And he fathered sons and daughters. 22 And Serug lived thirty years and fathered Nahor. 23 And after he fathered Nahor, Serug lived two hundred years. And he fathered sons and daughters. 24 And Nahor lived twenty nine years and fathered Terah. 25 And after he fathered Terah, Nahor lived a hundred and nineteen years. And he fathered sons and daughters. 26 And Terah lived seventy years and fathered Abram, Nahor, and Haran. 27 And these are the generations of Terah: Terah fathered Abram, Nahor, and Haran. And Haran fathered Lot. 28 And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldeans. 29 And Abram and Nahor took wives for themselves. The name of Abram's wife was Sarai. And the name of Nahor's wife was Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah. 30 And Sarai was barren; there was no child to her. 31 And Terah took his son Abram, and Lot, Haran's son, his grandson and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Abram's wife. And he went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldeans to go into the land of Canaan. And they came to Haran and lived there. 32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years; and Terah died in Haran.

John 1:3

3 All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.

Genesis 1:1

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth;

Colossians 1:16

16 For all things were created in Him, the things in the heavens, and the things on the earth, the visible and the invisible; whether thrones, or lordships, or rulers, or authorities, all things have been created through Him and for Him.

Genesis 2:1-25

1 And the heavens and the earth were finished, and all their host. 2 And on the seventh day God completed His work which He had made And He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because He rested from all His work on it, which God had created to make. 4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created in the day that Jehovah God was making earth and heavens. 5 and every shrub of the field was not yet on the earth, and every plant of the field had not yet sprung up; for Jehovah God had not sent rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground. 6 And mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 And Jehovah God formed the man out of dust from the ground, and blew into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. 8 And Jehovah God planted a garden in Eden to the east; and He put the man whom He had formed there. 9 And out of the ground Jehovah God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food. The Tree of Life was also in the middle of the garden; also the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. 10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it was divided and became four heads. 11 The name of the first was Pishon; it is the one surrounding all the land of Havilah where gold is; 12 the gold of that land is good; there is bdellium gum resin, and the onyx stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Gihon. It is the one surrounding all the land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third river is Tigris; it is the one going east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And Jehovah God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden, to work it and to keep it. 16 And Jehovah God commanded the man, saying, You may freely eat of every tree in the garden; 17 but of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil you may not eat, for in the day that you eat of it, you shall surely die. 18 And Jehovah God said, It is not good, the man being alone. I will make a helper suited to him. 19 And Jehovah God formed every animal of the field, and every bird of the heavens out of the ground. And He brought them to the man, to see what he would call it. And all which the man might call it, each living soul, that was its name. 20 And the man called names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the heavens, and to every animal of the field. But no helper suited to him was found for a man. 21 And Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh underneath. 22 And Jehovah God formed the rib which He had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man. 23 And the man said, This now at last is bone from my bones, and flesh from my flesh. For this shall be called Woman, because this has been taken out of man. 24 Therefore, a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife and they shall become one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and they were not ashamed.

Hebrews 11:3

3 By faith we understand the ages to have been framed by the word of God, so that the things seen should not come into being out of things that appear.

Isaiah 45:12

12 I have made the earth, and created man on it. I stretched out the heavens with My hands; and I have set all their host in order.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth; 2 and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters, 3 then God said, Let light be! And there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good, and God separated between the light and darkness. 5 And God called the light, Day. And He called the darkness, Night. And there was evening, and there was morning the first day. 6 And God said, Let an expanse be in the midst of the waters, and let it divide between the waters and the waters. 7 And God made the expanse, and He separated between the waters which were under the expanse and the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so. 8 And God called the expanse, Heavens. And there was evening, and there was morning the second day. 9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected to one place, and let the dry land appear. And it was so. 10 And God called the dry land, Earth. And He called the collection of the waters, Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so. 12 And the earth bore tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed according to its kind, and the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning the third day. 14 And God said, Let luminaries be in the expanse of the heavens, to divide between the day and the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years. 15 And let them be for luminaries in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth. And it was so. 16 And God made the two great luminaries: the great luminary to rule the day, and the small luminary and the stars to rule the night. 17 And God set them in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night; and to divide between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning the fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters swarm with swarmers having a soul of life; and let the birds fly over the earth, on the face of the expanse of the heavens. 21 And God created the great sea animals, and all that creeps, having a living soul, which swarmed the waters, according to its kind; and every bird with wing according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas; and let the birds multiply in the earth. 23 And there was evening, and there was morning the fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the soul of life according to its kind: cattle, and creepers, and its beasts of the earth, according to its kind. And it was so. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to its kind, and cattle according to its kind, and all creepers of the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth. 27 And God created the man in His own image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female. 28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and over birds of the heavens, and over all beasts creeping on the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every plant seeding seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree seeding seed; it shall be food for you. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to all birds of the heavens, and to every creeper on the earth which has in it a living soul, every green plant is for food. And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning the sixth day.
