Genesis 20:1-18

1 And Abraham journeyed from there to the land of the Negev, and he settled between Kadesh and Shur. And he dwelled as an alien in Gerar. 2 And Abraham said about Sarah his wife, "She is my sister." And Abimelech king of Gerar sent and took Sarah. 3 And God came to Abimelech in a dream at night. And he said to him, "Look, you are a dead man on account of the woman you have taken. For she is a married woman."* 4 Now Abimelech had not approached her, so he said, "my Lord, will you even kill a righteous people?" 5 Did not he himself say to me, 'She is my sister'? And she herself said, 'He is my brother.' With integrity of my heart and with cleanness of my hands I did this." 6 Then God said to him in the dream, "Yes,* I know that in the integrity of your heart you did this, and I also kept you from sinning* against me. Therefore, I did not allow you to touch her. 7 So now, return the wife of the man, for he is a prophet, so that he will pray for you and you will live. And if you do not return her,* know that you will certainly die, and all that are yours." 8 So Abimelech rose early in the morning. And he called all his servants and told them all these things,* and the men were very afraid. 9 And Abimelech called for Abraham and said to him, "What have you done to us? And how have I sinned against you that you brought upon me and upon my kingdom a great sin? You have done things to me that should not be done." 10 And Abimelech said to Abraham, "What were you thinking* that you did this thing?" 11 And Abraham said, "Because I thought, surely there is no fear of God in this place; they will kill me on account of the matter of my wife. 12 Besides,* she is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother. And she became my wife. 13 And it happened that as God caused me to wander from the house of my father I said to her, 'This is your loyal kindness that you must do for me at every place where we come: say concerning me, "He is my brother." '" 14 And Abimelech took sheep and cattle and male slaves and female slaves, and he gave them to Abraham. And he returned Sarah his wife to him. 15 And Abimelech said, "Here is my land before you; settle where it pleases you."* 16 And to Sarah he said, "Look, I have given a thousand pieces of silver to your brother. It shall be an exoneration.* You are vindicated before all who are with you."* 17 And Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his female servants so that they could bear children again. 18 For Yahweh had completely closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech because of the matter of Sarah, the wife of Abraham.

Genesis 10:1-32

1 These are the generations* of the sons of Noah—Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Children* were born to them after the flood. 2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. 3 And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. 4 And the sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5 From these the coastland peoples spread out through their lands, each according to his own language by their own families, in their nations. 6 And the sons of Ham: Cush, Egypt, Put, and Canaan. 7 And the sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan. 8 And Cush fathered Nimrod. He was the first on earth to be a mighty warrior.* 9 He was a mighty hunter before Yahweh. Therefore it was said, "Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before Yahweh." 10 Now,* the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Akkad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11 From that land he went out to Assyria, and he built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah, 12 Resen between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city. 13 And Egypt fathered Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, 14 Pathrusim, and Casluhim (from whom the Philistines came), and Caphtorim. 15 Canaan fathered Sidon, his firstborn, and Heth, 16 and the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites, 17 the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites, 18 the Arvadites, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites. Afterward the families of the Canaanites were spread abroad. 19 And the territory of the Canaanites was from Sidon in the direction of* Gerar as far as Gaza, and in the direction of* Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha. 20 These are the descendants* of Ham, according to their families and their languages, in their lands, and in their nations. 21 And to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the older brother of Japheth, children were also born. 22 The sons of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram. 23 And the sons of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. 24 And Arphaxad fathered Shelah, and Shelah fathered Eber. 25 And to Eber two sons were born. The name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided, and the name of his brother was Joktan. 26 And Joktan fathered Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29 Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were the sons of Joktan. 30 And their dwelling place extended from* Mesha in the direction of* Sephar to the hill country of the east. 31 These are the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands, and according to their nations. 32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations* and in their nations. And from these the nations spread abroad on the earth after the flood.

Genesis 50:20

20 As for you, you planned evil against me, but God planned it for good, in order to do this—to keep many people alive—as it is today.

1 John 3:1-2

1 See what sort of love the Father has given to us: that we should be called children of God, and we are! Because of this the world does not know us: because it did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that whenever he is revealed we will be like him, because we will see him just as he is.

1 John 1:1-10

1 What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and our hands have touched, concerning the word of life— 2 and the life was revealed, and we have seen and testify and announce to you the eternal life which was with the Father and was revealed to us— 3 what we have seen and heard, we announce to you also, in order that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things we write, in order that our joy may be complete. 5 And this is the message which we have heard from him and announce to you, that God is light and there is no darkness in him at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.* 7 But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say that we do not have sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, so that he will forgive us our* sins and will cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Genesis 4:7

7 If you do well will I not accept you?* But if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. And its desire is for you, but you must rule over it."

Genesis 8:1-22

1 And God remembered Noah and all the wild animals, and all the domesticated animals that were with him in the ark. And God caused a wind to blow* over the earth, and the waters subsided. 2 And the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens* were closed, and the rain from the heavens* was restrained. 3 And the waters receded from the earth gradually,* and the waters abated at the end of one hundred and fifty days. 4 And the ark came to rest in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. 5 And the waters continued to recede* to the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first of the month, the tops of the mountains appeared. 6 And it happened that at the end of forty days Noah opened the window of the ark that he had made. 7 And he sent out a* raven;* it went to and fro* until the waters were dried up from upon the earth. 8 And he sent out a* dove* to see whether the waters had subsided from upon the ground. 9 But the dove did not find a resting place for the sole of her foot, and she returned to him into the ark, for the waters were still on the face of the earth. And he stretched out his hand and took her, and brought her to himself into the ark. 10 And he waited another seven days, and again he sent out* the dove from the ark. 11 And the dove came to him in the evening,* and behold, a freshly-picked olive tree leaf was in her mouth. And Noah knew that the waters had subsided from upon the earth. 12 And he waited seven more days,* and he sent out the dove. But it did not return again to him. 13 And it happened that, in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, on the first day of the month, the waters dried up from upon the earth. And Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked. And behold, the face of the ground was dried up. 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 from the ark, you and your wife, and your sons, and your sons' wives with you. 17 Bring out with you all the living things which are with you, from all the living creatures—birds, and animals, and everything that creeps on the earth, and let them swarm on the earth and be fruitful and multiply on the earth." 18 So* Noah went out, with* his sons and his wife, and the wives of his sons with him. 19 Every animal, every creeping thing, and every bird, and everything that moves upon the earth, according to its families, went out from the ark. 20 And Noah built an altar to Yahweh, and he took from all the clean animals and from all the clean birds, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 And Yahweh smelled the soothing fragrance, and Yahweh said to himself,* "Never again will I curse* the ground for the sake of humankind, because the inclination of the heart of humankind is evil from his youth. Nor will I ever again destroy* all life as I have done. 22 As long as the earth endures,* seed and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will not cease.

Genesis 48:1-22

1 And it happened that after these things, it was said to Joseph, "Behold, your father is ill." And he took his two sons with him, Ephraim and Manasseh. 2 And it was told to Jacob, "Behold, your son Joseph has come to you." Then Israel strengthened himself and he sat up in the bed. 3 Then Jacob said to Joseph, "El-Shaddai* appeared to me in Luz, in the land of Canaan, and blessed me, 4 and said to me, 'Behold, I will make you fruitful and make you numerous, and will make you a company of nations. And I will give this land to your offspring after you as an everlasting possession.' 5 And now, your two sons who were born to you in the land of Egypt before my coming to you in Egypt, are mine. Ephraim and Manasseh shall be mine as Reuben and Simeon are. 6 And your children whom you father after them shall be yours. By the name of their brothers they shall be called, with respect to their inheritance. 7 As for me, when I came to Paddan-Aram Rachel died to my sorrow* in the land of Canaan on the way when there was still some distance to go to Ephrath. And I buried her there on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem)." 8 When Israel saw the sons of Joseph he said, "Who are these?" 9 Then Joseph said to his father, "They are my sons whom God has given me here." And he said, "Please bring them to me that I may bless them." 10 Now the eyes of Israel were dim* on account of old age; he was not able to see. So he brought them near to him, and he kissed them and embraced them. 11 And Israel said to Joseph, "I did not expect to see your face and behold, God has also shown me your offspring." 12 Then Joseph removed them from his knees and bowed down with his face to the ground. 13 And Joseph took the two of them, Ephraim at his right to the left of Israel, and Manasseh at his left to the right of Israel. And he brought them near to him. 14 And Israel stretched out his right hand and put it on the head of Ephraim (now he was the younger), and his left hand on the head of Manasseh, crossing his hands, for Manasseh was the firstborn. 15 And he blessed Joseph and said,
"The God before whom my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, walked, The God who shepherded me all my life* unto this day, 16 The angel who redeemed me from all evil, may he bless the boys. And through them let my name be perpetuated,* and the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac. And let them multiply into many in the midst of the earth. 17 When Joseph saw that his father put his right hand on the head of Ephraim, he was displeased. And he took hold of his father's hand to remove it from the head of Ephraim over to the head of Manasseh. 18 And Joseph said to his father, "Not so, my father; because this one is the firstborn. Put your right hand upon his head." 19 But his father refused and said, "I know, my son; I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great, but his younger brother shall be greater than him, and his offspring shall become a multitude of nations." 20 So he blessed them that day, saying,
Through you Israel shall pronounce blessing, saying, 'May God make you like Ephraim and like Manasseh.'"
So he put Ephraim before Manasseh. 21 And Israel said to Joseph, "Behold, I am about to die, but God will be with you and will bring you back to the land of your ancestors.* 22 And I have given to you one slope of land rather than your brothers, which I took from the hand of the Amorites by my sword and with my bow."

Genesis 1:26-28

26 And God said, "Let us make humankind in* our image and according to* our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of heaven,* and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every moving thing that moves upon the earth." 27 So* God created humankind in* his image, in* the likeness of God he created him,* male and female he created them. 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 the birds of heaven,* and over every animal that moves upon the earth."

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth— 2 Now* the earth was formless and empty, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light!" And there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good, and God caused there to be a separation between the light and between the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be a vaulted dome* in the midst of the waters, and let it cause a separation between the waters."* 7 So* God made the vaulted dome,* and he caused a separation between the waters which were under the vaulted dome* and between the waters which were over the vaulted dome.* And it was so. 8 And God called the vaulted dome* "heaven."* And there was evening, and there was morning, a second day. 9 And God said, "Let the waters under heaven* be gathered to one place, and let the dry ground appear." And it was so. 10 And God called the dry ground "earth," and he called the collection of the waters "seas." And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth produce green plants that will bear seed—fruit trees bearing fruit in which there is seed*—according to its* kind, on the earth." And it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth green plants bearing seed according to its* kind, and trees bearing fruit in which there was seed* according to its* kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day. 14 And God said, "Let there be lights* in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to separate day from night,* and let them be as signs and for appointed times, and for days and years, 15 and they shall be as lights* in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to give light on the earth." And it was so. 16 And God made two lights,* the greater light* to rule* the day and the smaller light* to rule* the night, and the stars. 17 And God placed them in the vaulted dome* of heaven* to give light on the earth 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate light from darkness.* And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. 20 And God said, "Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly over the earth across the face of the vaulted dome* of heaven.* 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. 22 And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth." 23 And there was evening, and there was morning, a fifth day. 24 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kind: cattle and moving things, and wild animals* according to their kind." And it was so. 25 So* God made wild animals* according to their kind and the cattle according to their kind, and every creeping thing of the earth according to its* kind. And God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, "Let us make humankind in* our image and according to* our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of heaven,* and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every moving thing that moves upon the earth." 27 So* God created humankind in* his image, in* the likeness of God he created him,* male and female he created them. 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 the birds of heaven,* and over every animal that moves upon the earth." 29 And God said, "Look—I am giving to you every plant that bears seed which is on the face of the whole earth, and every kind of tree that bears fruit.* They shall be yours as food." 30 And to every kind of animal of the earth and to every bird of heaven,* and to everything that moves upon the earth in which there is life I am giving every green plant as 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, a sixth day.
