1 Afterward Abraham departed thence toward the South countrey and dwelled betweene Cadesh and Shur, and soiourned in Gerar. 2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister. Then Abimelech King of Gerar sent and tooke Sarah. 3 But God came to Abimelech in a dreame by night, and said to him, Beholde, thou art but dead, because of the woman, which thou hast taken: for she is a mans wife. 4 (Notwithstanding Abimelech had not yet come neere her) And he said, Lord, wilt thou slay euen the righteous nation? 5 Said not he vnto me, She is my sister? yea, and she her selfe said, He is my brother: with an vpright minde, and innocent handes haue I done this. 6 And God saide vnto him by a dreame, I knowe that thou diddest this euen with an vpright minde, and I kept thee also that thou shouldest not sinne against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touche her. 7 Now then deliuer the man his wife againe: for he is a Prophet, and he shall pray for thee that thou mayest liue: but if thou deliuer her not againe, be sure that thou shalt die the death, thou, and all that thou hast. 8 Then Abimelech rising vp early in ye morning, called all his seruants, and tolde all these things vnto them, and the men were sore afraid. 9 Afterward Abimelech called Abraham, and said vnto him, What hast thou done vnto vs? and what haue I offeded thee, that thou hast brought on me and on my kingdome this great sinne? thou hast done things vnto me that ought not to be done. 10 So Abimelech said vnto Abraham, What sawest thou that thou hast done this thing? 11 Then Abraham answered, Because I thought thus, Surely the feare of God is not in this place, and they will slay me for my wiues sake. 12 Yet in very deede she is my sister: for she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she is my wife. 13 Nowe when God caused me to wander out of my fathers house, I said then to her, This is thy kindnes that thou shalt shewe vnto me in all places where we come, Say thou of me, He is my brother. 14 Then tooke Abimelech sheepe and beeues, and men seruants, and women seruants, and gaue them vnto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife. 15 And Abimelech saide, Beholde, my land is before thee: dwell where it pleaseth thee. 16 Likewise to Sarah he said, Beholde, I haue giuen thy brother a thousand pieces of siluer: behold, he is the vaile of thine eyes to all that are with thee, and to all others: and she was thus reproued. 17 Then Abraham prayed vnto God, and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his women seruants: and they bare children. 18 For the Lord had shut vp euery wombe of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abrahams wife.

1 Now these are the generations of the sonnes of Noah, Shem, Ham and Iapheth: vnto whom sonnes were borne after the flood. 2 The sonnes of Iapheth were Gomer and Magog, and Madai, and Iauan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. 3 And the sonnes of Gomer, Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. 4 Also the sonnes of Iauan, Elishah and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5 Of these were the yles of the Gentiles deuided in their landes, euery man after his tongue, and after their families in their nations. 6 Moreouer, ye sonnes of Ham were Cush, and Mizraim, and Put, and Canaan. 7 And the sonnes of Cush, Seba and Hauilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha: also the sonnes of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. 8 And Cush begate Nimrod, who began to be mightie in the earth. 9 He was a mightie hunter before the Lord. wherefore it is saide, As Nimrod the mightie hunter before the Lord. 10 And the beginning of his kingdome was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11 Out of that land came Asshur, and builded Niniueh, and the citie Rehoboth, and Calah: 12 Resen also betweene Niniueh and Calah: this is a great citie. 13 And Mizraim begate Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim. 14 Pathrusim also, and Casluhim (out of whom came the Philistims) and Caphtorims. 15 Also Canaan begat Zidon his first borne, and Heth, 16 And Iebusi, and Emori, and Girgashi, 17 And Hiui, and Arki, and Sini, 18 And Aruadi, and Zemari, and Hamathi: and afterwarde were the families of the Canaanites spred abroade. 19 Then the border of the Canaanites was from Zidon, as thou commest to Gerar vntil Azzah, and as thou goest vnto Sodom, and Gomorah, and Admah, and Zeboijm, euen vnto Lasha. 20 These are the sonnes of Ham according to their families, according to their tongues in their countries and in their nations. 21 Vnto Shem also the father of all the sonnes of Eber, and elder brother of Iapheth were children borne. 22 The sonnes of Shem were Elam and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and Lud, and Aram. 23 And the sonnes of Aram, Vz and Hul, and Gether and Mash. 24 Also Arpachshad begate Shelah, and Shelah begate Eber. 25 Vnto Eber also were borne two sonnes: the name of the one was Peleg: for in his dayes was the earth diuided: and his brothers name was Ioktan. 26 Then Ioktan begate Almodad and Sheleph, and Hazarmaueth, and Ierah, 27 And Hadoram, and Vzal, and Dicklah, 28 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba, 29 And Ophir, and Hauilah, and Iobab: all these were the sonnes of Ioktan. 30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest vnto Sephar a mount of the East. 31 These are the sonnes of Shem according to their families, according to their tongues, in their countreis and nations. 32 These are the families of the sonnes of Noah, after their generations among their people: and out of these were the nations diuided in the earth after the flood.

1 Behold, what loue the Father hath giuen to vs, that we should be called the sonnes of God: for this cause this world knoweth you not, because it knoweth not him. 2 Dearely beloued, nowe are we the sonnes of God, but yet it is not made manifest what we shall be: and we know that when he shalbe made manifest, we shalbe like him: for we shall see him as he is.
1 That which was from the beginning, which wee haue heard, which wee haue seene with these our eyes, which wee haue looked vpon, and these handes of ours haue handled of that Word of life, 2 (For that life was made manifest, and wee haue seene it, and beare witnes, and shewe vnto you that eternall life, which was with the Father, and was made manifest vnto vs) 3 That, I say, which wee haue seene and heard, declare wee vnto you, that yee may also haue fellowship with vs, and that our fellowship also may be with the Father, and with his Sonne Iesvs Christ. 4 And these thinges write we vnto you, that that your ioy may be full. 5 This then is the message which wee haue heard of him, and declare vnto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkenes. 6 If wee say that wee haue fellowship with him, and walke in darkenesse, we lie, and doe not truely: 7 But if we walke in the light as he is in the light, we haue fellowship one with another, and the blood of Iesus Christ his Sonne clenseth vs from all sinne. 8 If we say that we haue no sinne, we deceiue our selues, and trueth is not in vs. 9 If we acknowledge our sinnes, he is faithfull and iust, to forgiue vs our sinnes, and to clense vs from all vnrighteousnes. 10 If wee say we haue not sinned, wee make him a liar, and his word is not in vs.
1 Againe after this, one sayd to Ioseph, Loe, thy father is sicke: then hee tooke with him his two sonnes, Manasseh and Ephraim. 2 Also one told Iaakob, and said, Behold, thy sonne Ioseph is come to thee, and Israel tooke his strength vnto him and sate vpon the bed. 3 Then Iaakob sayde vnto Ioseph, God almightie appeared vnto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me. 4 And he sayde vnto me, Behold, I wil make thee fruitefull, and will multiplie thee, and will make a great number of people of thee, and will giue this lande vnto thy seede after thee for an euerlasting possession. 5 And now thy two sonnes, Manasseh and Ephraim, which are borne vnto thee in the lande of Egypt, before I came to thee into Egypt, shall be mine, as Reuben and Simeon are mine. 6 But the linage, which thou hast begotten after them, shalbe thine: they shall be called after the names of their brethren in their inheritance. 7 Nowe when I came from Padan, Rahel died vpon mine hande in the lande of Canaan, by the way when there was but halfe a dayes iourney of grounde to come to Ephrath: and I buryed her there in the way to Ephrath: the same is Beth-lehem. 8 Then Israel beheld Iosephs sonnes and sayd, Whose are these? 9 And Ioseph sayd vnto his father, They are my sonnes, which God hath giuen mee here. Then he sayd, I pray thee, bring them to me, that I may blesse them: 10 (For the eyes of Israel were dimme for age, so that hee coulde not well see) Then he caused them to come to him, and he kissed them and embraced them. 11 And Israel sayde vnto Ioseph, I had not thought to haue seene thy face: yet lo, God hath shewed me also thy seede. 12 And Ioseph tooke them away from his knees, and did reuerence downe to the ground. 13 Then tooke Ioseph them both, Ephraim in his right hand towarde Israels left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israels right hand, so he brought them vnto him. 14 But Israel stretched out his right hand, and layde it on Ephraims head, which was the yonger, and his left hande vpon Manassehs head (directing his handes of purpose) for Manasseh was the elder. 15 Also he blessed Ioseph and sayde, The God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Izhak did walke, the God, which hath fed me al my life long vnto this day, blesse thee. 16 The Angel, which hath deliuered me from all euill, blesse the children, and let my name be named vpon them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Izhak, that they may growe as fish into a multitude in the middes of the earth. 17 But when Ioseph sawe that his father layde his right hande vpon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he stayed his fathers hand to remooue it from Ephraims head to Manassehs head. 18 And Ioseph sayde vnto his father, Not so, my father, for this is the eldest: put thy right hand vpon his head. 19 But his father refused, and sayd, I know well, my sonne, I know well: he shalbe also a people, and he shalbe great likewise: but his yonger brother shalbe greater then he, and his seede shall be full of nations. 20 So he blessed them that day, and sayde, In thee Israel shall blesse, and say, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh. and he set Ephraim before Manasseh. 21 Then Israel said vnto Ioseph, Behold, I die, and God shall be with you, and bring you againe vnto the land of your fathers. 22 Moreouer, I haue giuen vnto thee one portion aboue thy brethren, which I gate out of the hand of the Amorite by my sworde and by my bowe.
7 If thou do well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sinne lieth at the doore: also vnto thee his desire shalbe subiect, and thou shalt rule ouer him.
1 Now God remembred Noah and euery beast, and all the cattell that was with him in the Arke: therefore God made a winde to passe vpon the earth, and the waters ceased. 2 The fountaines also of the deepe and the windowes of heauen were stopped and the raine from heauen was restrained, 3 And the waters returned from aboue the earth, going and returning: and after the ende of the hundreth and fiftieth day the waters abated. 4 And in the seuenth moneth, in the seuenteenth day of the moneth, the Arke rested vpon the mountaines of Ararat. 5 And the waters were going and decreasing vntill the tenth moneth: in the tenth moneth, and in the first day of the moneth were the toppes of the mountaines seene. 6 So after fourtie dayes, Noah opened the windowe of the Arke, which he had made, 7 And sent forth a rauen, which went out going forth and returning, vntill the waters were dried vp vpon the earth. 8 Againe he sent a doue from him, that he might see if the waters were diminished from off the earth. 9 But the doue found no rest for the sole of her foote: therefore she returned vnto him into the Arke (for the waters were vpon the whole earth) and he put forth his hand, and receiued her, and tooke her to him into the Arke. 10 And he abode yet other seuen dayes, and againe he sent forth the doue out of the Arke. 11 And the doue came to him in ye euening, and loe, in her mouth was an oliue leafe that she had pluckt: whereby Noah knewe that the waters were abated from off the earth. 12 Notwithstanding he wayted yet other seuen dayes, and sent forth the doue, which returned not againe vnto him any more. 13 And in the sixe hundreth and one yeere, in the first day of the first moneth the waters were dryed vp from off the earth: and Noah remoued the couering of the Arke and looked, and beholde, the vpper part of the ground was drie. 14 And in the second moneth, in the seuen and twentieth day of the moneth was the earth drie. 15 Then God spake to Noah, saying, 16 Goe forth of the Arke, thou and thy wife, and thy sonnes and thy sonnes wiues with thee. 17 Bring forth with thee euery beast that is with thee, of all flesh, both foule and cattell, and euery thing that creepeth and moueth vpon the earth, that they may breede abundantly in ye earth, and bring forth fruite and increase vpon ye earth. 18 So Noah came forth, and his sonnes, and his wife, and his sonnes wiues with him. 19 Euery beast, euery creeping thing, and euery foule, all that moueth vpon the earth after their kindes went out of the Arke. 20 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and tooke of euery cleane beast, and of euery cleane foule, and offered burnt offerings vpon the altar. 21 And the Lord smellled a sauour of rest, and the Lord said in his heart, I will hencefoorth curse the ground no more for mans cause: for the imagination of mans heart is euill, euen from his youth: neither will I smite any more all things liuing, as I haue done. 22 Hereafter seede time and haruest, and colde and heate, and sommer and winter, and day and night shall not cease, so long as ye earth remaineth.
26 Furthermore God said, Let vs make man in our image according to our likenes, and let them rule ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the heauen, and ouer the beastes, and ouer all the earth, and ouer euery thing that creepeth and moueth on the earth. 27 Thus God created the man in his image: in the image of God created he him: he created them male and female. 28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, Bring forth fruite and multiplie, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the heauen, and ouer euery beast that moueth vpon the earth.
1 In the beginning God created the heauen and the earth. 2 And the earth was without forme and void, and darkenesse was vpon the deepe, and the Spirit of God mooued vpon the waters. 3 Then God said, Let there be light: And there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good, and God separated the light from the darkenes. 5 And God called the Light, Day, and the darkenes, he called Night. So the euening and the morning were the first day. 6 Againe God said, Let there be a firmament in the mids of the waters: and let it separate the waters from the waters. 7 Then God made the firmament, and separated the waters, which were vnder the firmament, from the waters which were aboue the firmament: and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heauen. So the Euening and the morning were the second day. 9 God said againe, Let the waters vnder the heauen be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appeare. and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land, Earth, and he called the gathering together of the waters, Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said, Let the earth bud forth the bud of the herbe, that seedeth seed, the fruitfull tree, which beareth fruite according to his kinde, which hath his seede in it selfe vpon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought foorth the bud of the herbe, that seedeth seede according to his kind, also the tree that beareth fruit, which hath his seed in it selfe according to his kinde: and God saw that it was good. 13 So the euening and the morning were the third day. 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heauen, to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signes, and for seasons, and for dayes and yeeres. 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heauen to giue light vpon the earth: and it was so. 16 God then made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesse light to rule the night: he made also the starres. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heauen, to shine vpon the earth, 18 And to rule in the day, and in the night, and to separate the light from the darkenesse: and God saw that it was good. 19 So the euening and the morning were the fourth day. 20 Afterward God said, Let the waters bring foorth in abundance euery creeping thing that hath life: and let the foule flie vpon the earth in the open firmament of the heauen. 21 Then God created the great whales, and euery thing liuing and mouing, which the waters brought foorth in abundance according to their kinde, and euery fethered foule according to his kinde: and God sawe that it was good. 22 Then God blessed them, saying, Bring foorth fruite and multiplie, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the foule multiplie in the earth. 23 So the euening and the morning were the fifte day. 24 Moreouer God said, Let the earth bring foorth the liuing thing according to his kinde, cattel, and that which creepeth, and the beast of the earth, according to his kinde. and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to his kinde, and the cattell according to his kinde, and euery creeping thing of the earth according to his kind: and God saw that it was good. 26 Furthermore God said, Let vs make man in our image according to our likenes, and let them rule ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the heauen, and ouer the beastes, and ouer all the earth, and ouer euery thing that creepeth and moueth on the earth. 27 Thus God created the man in his image: in the image of God created he him: he created them male and female. 28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, Bring forth fruite and multiplie, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the heauen, and ouer euery beast that moueth vpon the earth. 29 And God said, Beholde, I haue giuen vnto you euery herbe bearing seede, which is vpon al the earth, and euery tree, wherein is the fruite of a tree bearing seede: that shall be to you for meate. 30 Likewise to euery beast of the earth, and to euery foule of the heauen, and to euery thing that moueth vpon the earth, which hath life in it selfe, euery greene herbe shall be for meate. and it was so. 31 And God sawe all that he had made, and loe, it was very good. So the euening and the morning were the sixt day.
