Genesis 3:1-24

1 And the serpent was crafty above every beast of the field which Jehovah God made; and he will say to the woman, Is it because God said ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman will say to the serpent, From the fruit of the tree of the garden we shall eat 3 And from the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God said, Ye shall not eat from it, and ye shall not touch upon it, lest ye shall die. 4 And the serpent will say to the woman, Dying ye shall not die. 5 For God is knowing in the day of your eating from it, and your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil. 6 And the woman will see that the tree is good for food, and that it is a desire to the eyes, and a tree desired to make wise; and she will take from its fruit and will eat, and will give also to her man with her, and he will eat 7 And the eyes of the two shall be opened, and they shall know that they are naked; and they shall sew together the leaves of the fig tree, and shall make to themselves girdles. 8 And they shall hear the voice of Jehovah God walking in the garden at the breeze of the day: and Adam and his wife will hide from the face of Jehovah God in the midst of the wood of the garden. 9 And Jehovah God will call to the man, and will say to him, Where art thou? 10 And he will will say, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I shall be afraid, because I am naked, and I will hide myself. 11 And he will say, Who showed to thee that thou art naked? Of the tree which I charged thee not to eat, didst thou eat from it? 12 And the man will say, The woman which thou gavest with me, she gave to me from the tree, and I shall eat 13 And Jehovah God will say to the woman, What is this thou didst? And the woman will say, The serpent deceived me and I shall eat. 14 And Jehovah God will say to the serpent, Because thou didst this, cursed art thou above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust thou shalt eat all the days of thy life. 15 And I will put enmity between thee and between the woman, and between thy seed and between her seed; it shall lie in wait for thee as to the head, and thou shalt lie in wait for him as to the heel. 16 To the woman he said, Multiplying, I will multiply thy pain and thy conception; in pain thou shalt bring forth children; and to thy husband thy desire, and he shall rule over thee. 17 And to Adam he said, Because thou didst listen to the voice of thy wife, and thou wilt eat from the tree which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat from it; cursed the earth for thy sake; in labor shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18 And thorns and weeds shall it cause to sprout forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the green herb of the field. 19 In the sweat of thy face thou shalt eat food until thy turning back to the earth; for out of it thou wert taken; for dust thou art, and to dust shalt thou turn back. 20 And Adam will call his wife's name Life, for she was the mother of all living. 21 And Jehovah God will make to Adam and to his wife, coats of skin, and will clothe them. 22 And Jehovah God will say, Lo, Adam became as one from us, to know good and evil: and now lest he shall send forth his hand and take also of the tree of lives, and eat, and live to eternity: 23 And Jehovah God will send. him forth from the garden of Eden to work the earth which he was taken from there. 24 And he will drive out Adam; and he will set up from the east of the garden of Eden, cherubims, and a flaming sword, turning itself about to keep the way of the tree of lives.

Luke 6:27-36

27 But I say to you hearing, Love your enemies; do good to those hating you, 28 Praise those cursing you, and pray for those threatening you. 29 To him striking thee upon the cheek hold also near the other; and from him taking away thy garments, and thou shouldest not retrench thy coat. 30 And to every one asking thee, do thou give; and from him taking away thy things, re-demand not. 31 And as ye wish that men would do to you, and do you to them likewise. 32 And if ye love them loving you, what grace is to you? for also the sinful would love those loving them. 33 And if ye do good to those doing good to you, what grace is to you? for also the sinful do the same. 34 And if ye lend of whom ye hope to receive back, what grace is to you? for also the sinful lend to the sinful, that they might receive back the like things. 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing back; and your reward shall be much, and ye shall be sons of the Highest; for he is kind to the graceless and evil. 36 Be ye therefore compassionate, as also your Father is compassionate.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

9 And he said to me, My grace suffices thee: for my power is perfected in weakness. Therefore very willingly will I boast rather in my weaknesses, that Christ's power may lodge upon me. 10 Therefore am I contented in weaknesses, in reproaches, in necessities in expulsions, in extremities for Christ: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

James 1:1-27

1 James, servant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes in the dispersion, health. 2 Deem all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into various trials; 3 Knowing that the proof of your faith works patience. 4 And let patience have a perfect work, that ye be perfect and entire, being left behind in nothing. 5 If any of you is forsaken of wisdom, let him ask of God, giving to all plainly, blaming not; and it shall be given him. 6 And let him ask in faith, being at variance in nothing. For he being at variance is like the surge of the sea being moved by the wind and put in motion. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A man divided in opinion unsteady in all his ways. 9 And let the humble brother boast in his elevation: 10 And the rich, in his humiliation: for as the flower of the grass he shall pass by. 11 For the sun sprang up with heat, and dried up the grass, and its flower fell out, and the decorum of its face was destroyed: so also shall the rich be dried up in his goings. 12 Happy the man who endures temptation: for being tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to them loving him. 13 Let none say being tempted, that I am tempted of God: for God is not tempted of evils, and he tempts none: 14 And each is tempted from his own lust, being drawn out, and decoyed. 15 So then lust conceiving, brings forth sin: and sin performed, produces death. 16 Be not led astray, my dearly beloved brethren. 17 Every good donation and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom not one change, or shadow of turning. 18 Having willed he brought forth by the word of truth, for us to be some first fruit of his creatures. 19 Wherefore, my dearly beloved brethren, let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger: 20 For man s anger works not the justice of God. 21 Wherefore having put away all sordid avarice, and excess of wickedness, in meekness receive the implanted word, able to save your souls. 22 And be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if any is a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like a man observing the face of his creation in a mirror: 24 For he observed himself, and went away, and straightway forgot of what kind he was. 25 And he having stooped into the perfect law of liberty, and remained, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of work, he shall be happy in his doing. 26 If any among you seem to be religious, bridling not his tongue, but deceiving his heart, the religion of this one vain. 27 Religion pure and unpolluted before God and the Father is this, To take a view of the orphans and widows in their pressure, to keep himself free from stain from the world.
