Genesis 1:26

Psalms 139:13-14

13 Indeed you created my inward parts;* you wove me in my mother's womb. 14 I praise you, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.* Wonderful are your works, and my soul knows it well.

Proverbs 21:30

30 There is no wisdom, nor understanding, nor counsel to oppose Yahweh.

John 1:1-51

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 This one was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through him, and apart from him not one thing came into being that* has come into being. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of humanity.* 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome* it. 6 A man came, sent from God, whose name was* John. 7 This one came for a witness, in order that he could testify about the light, so that all would believe through him. 8 That one was not the light, but came* in order that he could testify about the light. 9 The true light, who gives light to every person, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world came into being through him, and the world did not recognize* him. 11 He came to his own things, and his own people did not receive him. 12 But as many as received him—to those who believe in his name—he gave to them authority to become children of God, 13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of a husband, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and took up residence among us, and we saw his glory, glory as of the one and only from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John testified about him and cried out, saying, "This one was he about whom I said, 'The one who comes after me is ahead of me, because he existed before me.'" 16 For from his fullness we have all received, and grace after grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came about through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time; the one and only, God, the one who is in the bosom of the Father—that one has made him* known. 19 And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent* priests and Levites from Jerusalem so that they could ask him, "Who are you?" 20 And he confessed—and he did not deny, and confessed—"I am not the Christ!" 21 And they asked him, "Then who are you? Are you Elijah?" And he said, "I am not!" "Are you the Prophet?"* And he answered, "No!" 22 Then they said to him, "Who are you, so that we can give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?" 23 He said,
"I am 'the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, "Make straight the way of the Lord," '*
just as Isaiah the prophet said." 24 (And they had been sent from the Pharisees.) 25 And they asked him and said to him, "Why then are you baptizing, if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?" 26 John answered them, saying, "I baptize with water. In your midst stands one whom you do not know— 27 the one who comes after me, of whom I am not worthy to untie* the strap of his sandal!" 28 These things took place in Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 On the next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, "Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This one is the one about whom I said, 'After me is coming a man who is ahead of me, because he existed before me.' 31 And I did not know him, but in order that he could be revealed to Israel, because of this I came baptizing with water." 32 And John testified, saying, "I have seen the Spirit descending like a dove from heaven and remaining upon him. 33 And I did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water, that one said to me, 'The one upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon him—this one is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.' 34 And I have seen and testify that this one is the Chosen One* of God. 35 On the next day again John was standing there,* and two of his disciples, 36 and looking at Jesus as he* was walking by, he said, "Look! The Lamb of God!" 37 And the two disciples heard him speaking, and they followed Jesus. 38 And Jesus, turning around and seeing them following him,* said to them, "What do you seek?" And they said to him, "Rabbi" (which means when* translated "Teacher"), "where are you staying?" 39 He said to them, "Come and you will see!" So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day (it was about the tenth hour). 40 Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard John and followed him. 41 This one first found his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah!" (which is translated "Christ"). 42 He brought him to Jesus. Looking at him, Jesus said, "You are Simon the son of John. You will be called Cephas" (which is interpreted "Peter"). 43 On the next day he wanted to depart for Galilee, and he found Philip. And Jesus said to him, "Follow me!" 44 (Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the town of Andrew and Peter.) 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found the one whom Moses wrote about in the law, and the prophets wrote about—Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth!" 46 And Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see!" 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said about him, "Look! A true Israelite* in whom is no deceit!" 48 Nathanael said to him, "From where do you know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, when you* were under the fig tree, I saw you." 49 Nathanael answered him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the king of Israel!" 50 Jesus answered and said to him, "Because I said to you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these!" 51 And he said to him, "Truly, truly I say to all of you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man."

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.

2 Peter 3:8

8 Now, dear friends, do not let this one thing escape your notice, that one day with the Lord is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like one day.

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.

Genesis 1:21

21 So* God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kind, and every bird with wings according to its* kind. And God saw that it was good.

Isaiah 44:24-25

24 Thus says Yahweh, your redeemer, and he who formed you in* the womb: "I am Yahweh, who made everything, who stretched out the heavens alone, who spread out the earth—who was with me?— 25 who frustrates* the signs of oracle priests and makes a fool of diviners, who drives the wise men back and makes their knowledge foolish,

Colossians 2:8

8 Beware lest anyone take you captive* through philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition*, according to the elemental spirits of the world and not according to Christ,

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.

Colossians 1:16-17

16 because all things in the heavens and on the earth were created by him, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers, all things were created through him and for him, 17 and he himself is before all things, and in him all things are held together,
