Genesis 20:1-18

1 And Abraham departed thence towarde the south contrey, and dwelled betwene Cades & Sur, and soiorned in Gerar. 2 And Abraham sayde of Sara hys wyfe: she is my syster. And Abimelech kynge of Gerar sent & fett Sara awaye. 3 But God came to Abimelech in a dreame in the nyght and sayde to hym: Se, thou shalt dye for the womans sake which thou hast taken awaye, for she is a mans wyfe. 4 But Abimelech had not yet come nye her, & he sayde: Lorde wylt thou sley ryghtewes people? 5 sayde not he vnto me, she is my syster? yee, & sayde not she herselfe: he is my brother? with a pure herte and innocent handes haue I done this. 6 And God sayde vnto him by a dreame: I wot it well that thou dydest it in the purenesse of thy herte. I kepte the also that thou shuldest not sinne agaynst me, & therfore suffred I the not to touch her. 7 Nowe therfore delyuer the man his wyfe agayne, for he is a prophete. And he shall praye for the that thou mayst lyue. But and yf thou delyuer her not agayne, be sure that thou shalt dye the deth, both thou, and all that thou hast. 8 Therfore Abimelech rysynge vp betymes in the mornynge called all his seruauntes, & tolde all these sayinges in their eares, and the men were sore afrayde. 9 And Abimelech called Abraham & sayde vnto hym: What hast thou done vnto vs & what haue I offended the that thou hast brought on me and on my kyngdome so great a synne? thou hast done dedes vnto me that ought not to be done. 10 And Abimelech sayde vnto Abraham: What sawest thou that thou hast done this thynge? 11 Abraham answered. For I sayde: surely the feare of God is not in thys place, & they shall sley me for my wyfes sake: 12 yet in very dede she is my syster, for she is the daughter of my father: though she be not the daughter of my mother: and she became my wyfe. 13 And after, God caused me to wandre, out of my fathers house, I sayde vnto her: Thys kyndnesse shalt thou shewe vnto me in all places where we come, that thou saye of me, he is my brother. 14 Than toke Abimelech shepe and oxen, men seruauntes & wemen seruauntes & gaue them vnto Abraham, and delyuered hym Sara his wyfe agayne. 15 And Abimelech sayde: beholde, my lande lyeth before the, dwell where it pleaseth the best. 16 But vnto Sara he sayde: Se, I haue geuen thy brother a thousande peces of syluer, beholde, it shall be a couerynge of thyne eyes vnto all that are wt the & thus with all was she reproued. 17 And so Abraham prayed vnto God, and God healed Abimelech and his wyfe and his maydens, & they bare chyldren. 18 For the Lorde had closed to, all the matryces of the house of Abymelech: because of Abrahams wyfe.

Genesis 10:1-32

1 These are the generacions of the sonnes of Noah, Sem, Ham and Iapheth: And vnto them were chyldren borne after the floude. 2 The chyldren of Iapheth: Gomer and Magog, and Madai, and Iauan, and Thubal, Mesech and Theras. 3 The chyldren of Gomer: Askenas and Riphath and Thogarma. 4 The chyldren of Iauan: Elisa and Tharsis, Kitthim, and Dodanim. 5 Of these were the Iles of the Gentiles deuyded in their landes, euery man after hys tonge, & after hys kynreds in their nacyons. 6 The children of Ham: Cusch & Mizraiim, and Phut and Chanaan. 7 And the chyldren of Cusch: Seba and Hauilah and Sabtha, and Rahma, and Sabthecha. The chyldren of Rahma: Scheba and Dedan. 8 Cusch also begat Nimrod. The same beganne to be myghtye in the erth. 9 For he was a myghtye hunter before the Lorde. Wherfore it is sayde: Euen as Nimrod the myghtie hunter before the Lorde. 10 The begynning of his kyngdome was Babel and Erech and Accad, and Calne, in the londe of Sinhar. 11 Out of that londe came Assur, and buylded Niniue, and the stretes of the citie & Calah. 12 Resen also betwene Niniue and Calah, and it is a greate cite. 13 Mizraiim begat Ludym, & Enamim, & Lehabim, and Nephtuhim. 14 Pathrusim also and Casluhim, out of whom came Philistiim and Capthorim. 15 Chanaan begat at Zidon his fyrst borne sonne, and Heth, 16 & Iebusi, and Emori, & Girgosi. 17 Hahiui also and Haarki and Hassini, 18 and Haaruadi, and Hazmari, and Hahemathi: And afterwarde were the kynreds of the Cananites spred abrode. 19 The border of the Cananites was from Zidon, as thou commest to Gerar vntill Gazan, and as thou goest vnto Sodoma, and Gomora, and Adama, and Zeboiim, euen vnto Lesa. 20 These are the chyldren of Ham in their kynreds, in theyr tonges, countrees and in theyr nacyons. 21 Unto Sem also the father of all the children of Eber (and elder brother of Iapheth) there were chyldren borne. 22 The chyldren of Sem: Elam and Assur, Arphachsad, and Lud and Aram. 23 The children of Aram: Uz and Hul, Gether & Mas 24 Arphachsad begat Selah, & Selah begat Eber. 25 Unto Eber also were borne two sonnes: The name of the one was Peleg, for in hys dayes was the erth deuyded. And hys brothers name was Iaketan. 26 Iaketan begat Almodad and Saleph Hazarmaueth and Ierah, 27 and Hodoran & Uzal and Dickla, 28 Obal also & Abimael and Scheba, 29 and Ophir, and Hauila, and Iobab. All these were the chyldren of Iaketan. 30 And their dwellinge was from Mesa, as thou goest vnto Sephar a mount of the east. 31 These are the children of Sem after their kynreds and tonges in their londes and nacyons. 32 And so these are the kynreds of the chyldren of Noah, after their generacions in their peoples, and of these were the nacions deuyded in the erth after the floude.

1 John 3:1-2

1 Beholde, what loue the father hath shewed on vs, that we shuld be called the the sonnes of God. For this cause the worlde knoweth you not, because it knoweth not hym. 2 Dearely beloued, now are we the sonnes of God & yet it doth not appeare, what we shalbe. But we knowe, that when it shall appeare, we shalbe lyke him. For we shall se hym as he is.

1 John 1:1-10

1 That which was from the begynnynge, whyche we haue hearde, whyche we haue sene wyth oure eyes, whych we haue loked vpon, and our handes haue handled, of the word of the lyfe. 2 And the lyfe appeared, & we haue sene and beare wytnes, & shewe vnto you that eternall lyfe, whyche was wyth the father, & appeared vnto vs. 3 That which we haue sene & herde, declare we vnto you, that ye also maye haue fellowshyppe with vs, and that oure felloushyppe maye be wyth the father and his sonne Iesus Christ. 4 And thys write we vnto you, that youre ioye maye be full. 5 And this is the tydynges whych we haue hearde of hym & declare vnto you, that God is lyght, & in him is no dercknes at all. 6 If we saye, that we haue feloushippe with hym, and walcke in dercknes, we lye, & do not the truth. 7 But & yf we walke in lyght euen as he is in lyght, then haue we fellishippe wt him, and the bloude of Iesus Christ his sonne clenseth vs from all synne. 8 If we saye that we haue no synne, we deceaue oure selues, and the trueth is not in vs: 9 If we knowledge oure synnes, he is faythfull & iust, to forgeue vs oure synnes, and to clense vs from all vnryghtewesnes. 10 If we saye we haue not synned, we make hym a lyar, and hys worde is not in vs.

Genesis 48:1-22

1 After these deades it happened, that a messaunger sayde vnto Ioseph: thy father is sycke. And he toke wt him his .ii. sonnes, Manasses & Ephraim. 2 Then was it sayd vnto Iacob: beholde, thy sonne Ioseph commeth vnto the. And Israel toke his strength vnto hym, & satt vp on the bedd, 3 & Iacob sayde vnto Ioseph: God allmyghtie apeared vnto me at Lus in the lande of Canaan, & blessed me, 4 & sayde vnto me: beholde, I wyll make the growe, & wyll multiplye the, & wyll make a great nombre of people of the, and wyll geue thys land vnto thy seed after the vnto an euerlastyng possessyon. 5 And now thy .ii. sonnes Manasses & Ephraim which were borne vnto the in the lande of Egypte, before I came to the in to Egypte, are myne: euen as Ruben & Symeon are myne. 6 And the children which thou hast gotten after them, shalbe thyne awne: & shalbe called after the names of theyr brethren in theyr enheritaunce. 7 And whan I came from Mesopotamia, Rahel dyed vpon my hand in the lande of Canaan, by the waye: when ther was but a feldes brede to come vnto Ephrat. And I buryed her there in the waye to Ephrat. The same is Bethlehem. 8 And Israel behelde Iosephs sonnes and sayde: what are these? 9 Ioseph sayd vnto his father: they are my sonnes which God hathe geuen me here. And he sayde: oh, brynge them to me, & let me blesse them. 10 And the eyes of Israel were dymme for age, so that he coulde not well see. And he broughte them to hym, and he kyssed them and embraced them. 11 And Israel sayde vnto Ioseph: I had not thought to haue sene thy face, and yet loo, God hath shewed it me and also thy seed. 12 And Ioseph toke them awaye from his lappe, & worshypped on the grounde before hym. 13 Than toke Ioseph them both: Ephraim with his ryghte hande towarde Israels left hande, & Manasses wt hys left hande, towarde Israels ryghte hande, & brought them vnto hym. 14 And Israel stretched out hys ryghte hande & layde it vpon Ephraims heade which was the yonger, & hys lyfte hande vpon Manasses heed, gydinge hys handes wysely, for Manasses was the elder. 15 And he blessed Ioseph & sayde: God, before whome my fathers Abraham & Isahac dyd walke, God whych hath fedd me all my lyfe longe vnto thys daye, 16 And the angell whych hath delyuered me from all euyll, blesse these laddes: & let my name be named in them, & the name of my fathers Abraham & Isahac, & that they maye growe into a multitude in the myddes of the erth. 17 When Ioseph sawe that hys father layde hys ryghte hande vpon the heade of Ephraim, it displeased him. And he lyfte vp his fathers hande, to haue remoued it from Ephraims heade vnto Manasses heade, 18 & Ioseph sayde vnto hys father: Not so my father, for thys is the eldest. Put thy ryght hande vpon hys heade. 19 And hys father wolde not, but sayde: I knowe it well my sonne, I knowe it well. He shalbe also a people & shalbe great. But hys yonger brother shalbe greatter than he, and hys seed shall be full of people. 20 And he blessed them that daye and sayde: In the let Israel blesse & saye: God make the as Ephraim and as Manasses. And sett Ephraim before Manasses. 21 And Israel sayde vnto Ioseph: beholde, I dye. And God shalbe wyth you and brynge you agayne vnto the lande of youre fathers. 22 Moreouer I haue geuen vnto the, a porcyon of lande aboue thy brethren, which I gatt out of the hande of the Amorite in my swerde and in my bowe.

Genesis 8:1-22

1 And God remembred Noah, and euery beaste, and all the catell that was with him in the Arke. And god made a wind to passe vpon the earth, and the waters ceassed. 2 The fountaynes also of the depe and the windowes of heauen were stopped, 3 and the rayne from heauen was restrayned. And the waters from the erth were returned, goyng and commynge agayne. And after the ende of the hundreth and fyftieth daye, the waters were abated. 4 And in the seuenth moneth in the seuententh daye of the moneth, the Arke rested vpon the mountaines of Armenia. 5 And the waters truely were goynge and decreacyng vntyl the tenth moneth: For in the tenth moneth, & in the fyrst daie of the same moneth were the toppes of the mountaynes sene. 6 And after the ende of the fortieth daye, it happened that Noah opened the wyndowe of the Arke which he had made. 7 And he sent forth a rauen, whiche went out goyng forth and returnynge agayne, vntyll the waters were dryed vp vpon the earth. 8 And agayne he sent forth a doue from hym, that he myghte se yf the waters were abated from the vpper face of the grounde. 9 And the doue founde no rest for the sole of her fote, & she returned vnto hym agayne into the Arke: for the waters were in the vpper face of the whole erth. And he, whan he had put forth his hande, toke her, and pulled her into hym into the Arke. 10 And he abode yet other seuen dayes, and proceadynge further, he sent forthe the doue out of the Arke. 11 And the doue came to hym in the euen tyde, and lo, in her mouthe was an oliue leaf that she had pluct, wherby Noah did knowe, that the waters were abated vpon the earth. 12 And he abode yet other seuen daies and sent forthe the doue, whiche proceaded not to returne vnto hym any more. 13 And it came to passe in the syxe hundreth & one yere, in the fyrst moneth, & in the fyrst daye of the moneth, the waters were dryed vp from the earthe. And Noah remoued the coueryng of the Arke, & loked, & beholde, the vpper face of the grounde was dryed vp. 14 And in the seconde moneth, in the seuen & twentye daye of the moneth, was the earth dryed. 15 And God spake vnto Noah sayeng: 16 Go forth of the Arke, thou & thy wyfe, thy sonnes, & thy sonnes wyues wt the. 17 And brynge forth with the, euery beaste that is with the: of all flesshe (both foule & catel, & euery worme that crepeth vpon the earthe) that they maye gendre in the earth, & bryng forth frute, and increase vpon erth. 18 And so Noah came forth and hys sonnes, hys wyfe, & hys sonnes wyues with hym. 19 Euery beast also and euery worme, euery foule, and whatsoeuer crepeth vpon the earth (after theyr kyndes) went out of the Arke. 20 And Noah buylded an altare vnto the lorde, and toke of euery cleane beast, and of euery cleane foule, & offred sacrifyces in the altare. 21 And the Lorde smelled a swete (or quyete) sauoure. And the Lorde sayde in his herte: I wyll not proceade to curse the grounde any more for mannes sake, for the ymagynacyon of mans hert is euel euen from hys youth. Neyther wyl I adde to smite any more euery thynge liuynge, as I haue done, 22 yet therfore shall not sowyng tyme, & haruest, colde and heate, Sommer & wynter, daye & nyght, ceasse, all the dayes of the earth.

Genesis 1:26-28

26 And God sayde: let vs make man in oure ymage after oure lycknes, and let them haue rule of the fysh of the see: and foule of the ayre and catell, and all the earth, and of euery crepyng thyng that crepeth vpon the erth. 27 And so God created man in his awne ymage: in the ymage of God created he hym, male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God sayd vnto them: Growe and increace and replenyshe the erth, and subdue it: and haue dominion of the fish of the see, and foule of the aire: and of euery lyuing thyng that moueth vpon the earth.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the begynnynge God created heauen and earthe. 2 The earth was voyde and emptye: and darcknes was vpon the face of the depe: and the sprete of God moued vpon the face of the waters. 3 And God sayde: let there be made lyght, and there was light made. 4 And God sawe the light that it was good. And God made a diuision betwene the light and darknesse. 5 And God called the light, daye: and the darknesse called he, nyght. And the euenyng and the morning was made one daye. 6 And God sayde: let there be a firmament betwene the waters: and let it make a diuision betwene waters and waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and set a diuision betwene the waters which were vnder the firmament and the waters that were aboue the firmament. And it was so. 8 And God called the firmament, Heauen. The euenynge also and the mornyng was made the second daye. 9 And God sayde: let the waters vnder heauen be gathered together into one place, that the drye lande maye be sene. And so it came to passe. 10 And God called the drye lande Earth: and the gatheryng together of waters called he the sees. And God sawe that it was good. 11 And God sayde: let the earth bring forth grene herbe, which maye engendre seed: and frutefull tre, yeldyng frute after hys kynde, whose seed maye be in it self vpon the earth. And it came to passe. 12 And the earth brought forth grene herbe, makynge seede after hys kynde: and tree yeldynge frute, whose seed was in it selfe after hys kynde. And God sawe that it was good. 13 The euenynge also and the mornynge was made the thyrde daye. 14 And God sayde: let there be made lyghtes in the firmament of heauen: and let them make a difference betwene the daye and the nyght, and let them be vnto signes, and vnto appoynted seasons, and vnto dayes, and vnto yeares. 15 And let them be vnto lyghtes in the firmament of heauen, that they maye geue lyght vpon the earthe. And so it came to passe. 16 And God made two greate lyghtes: a greater lyght to rule the daye, & a lesse lyght to rule the night (And he made) sterres also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of heauen, that they myght geue lyght vpon the earth, 18 and that they might rule the daye and the night: and to make a difference betwene the lyght and the darknes. And God sawe that it was good. 19 The euenyng also and the mornyng was made the fourth daye. 20 And God sayde: let the waters bryng forth mouynge creature that hath lyfe, and foule that maye flye vpon the earth in the face of the firmament of heauen. 21 And God created great whalles and euery lyuing and mouyng creature, which the waters brought forth after their kynde: and euery fethered foule after their kynde. And God sawe that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, sayinge: Growe & increace and fyll the waters of the see: and let fethred foules be multiplyed in the earth. 23 The euenynge also and the mornyng was made the fyfth daye. 24 And God sayde: let the earth bring forth lyuing creature after his kynde: catell, worme and beast of the erth after his kynde: and so it came to passe. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kynde, and catell after their kynde: and euery thynge that crepeth vpon the earth after his kynde. And God sawe that it was good. 26 And God sayde: let vs make man in oure ymage after oure lycknes, and let them haue rule of the fysh of the see: and foule of the ayre and catell, and all the earth, and of euery crepyng thyng that crepeth vpon the erth. 27 And so God created man in his awne ymage: in the ymage of God created he hym, male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God sayd vnto them: Growe and increace and replenyshe the erth, and subdue it: and haue dominion of the fish of the see, and foule of the aire: and of euery lyuing thyng that moueth vpon the earth. 29 And God sayde: Beholde, I haue geuen you euery herbe sowynge seed, which is in the vpper face of all the earth: and euery tre in the which is the frute of tree, and that soweth seed, that they maye be meate vnto you. 30 To euery beast of the earth also, and to euery byrde of the ayre, and to euery suche thinge as crepeth vpon the earth (wherin is a lyuing soule) I haue geuen all grenenes of herbe to be meat. And it came so to passe. 31 And God sawe euery thyng that he had made, and beholde, it was exceading good. The euenyng also and the mornynge was made the syxth daye.
