Isaiah 9:6

6 For a child has been born for us; a son has been given to us. And the dominion will be on his shoulder, and his name is called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

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."

Matthew 19:1-30

1 And it happened that when Jesus had finished these statements, he went away from Galilee and came into the region of Judea on the other side of the Jordan. 2 And large crowds followed him, and he healed them there. 3 And Pharisees came up to him in order to* test him, and asked* if it was permitted for a man to divorce his wife for any cause. 4 And he answered and* said, "Have you not read that the one who created them* from the beginning made them male and female 5 and said, 'On account of this a man will leave his* father and his* mother and will be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'?* 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, man must not separate." 7 They said to him, "Why then did Moses command us* to give a document—a certificate of divorce—and to divorce her?" 8 He said to them, "Moses, with reference to your hardness of heart, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not like this. 9 Now I say to you that whoever divorces his wife, except on the basis of sexual immorality, and marries another commits adultery, and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery."* 10 The disciples* said to him, "If this is the case of a man with his* wife, it would be better not to marry!" 11 But he said to them, "Not everyone can accept this saying but those to whom it has been given. 12 For there are eunuchs who were born as such from their mother's womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by people, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs* for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who is able to accept this,* let him accept it."* 13 Then children were brought to him so that he could lay his* hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Jesus said, "Allow the children, and do not forbid them to come to me, for to such belongs* the kingdom of heaven." 15 And he laid his* hands on them and* traveled on from there. 16 And behold, someone came up to him and* said, "Teacher, what good thing must I do so that I will have eternal life?" 17 And he said to him, "Why are you asking me about what is good? There is one who is good. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments!" 18 He said to him, "Which ones?" And Jesus said, "Do not commit murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, 19 honor your* father and your* mother, and love your neighbor as yourself." 20 The young man said to him, "All these I have observed. What do I still lack?" 21 Jesus said to him, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give the proceeds* to the poor—and you will have treasure in heaven—and come, follow me." 22 But when* the young man heard the statement, he went away sorrowful, because he was one who had many possessions. 23 And Jesus said to his disciples, "Truly I say to you that with difficulty a rich person will enter into the kingdom of heaven! 24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich person into* the kingdom of God." 25 So when* the disciples heard this,* they were extremely amazed, saying, "Then who can be saved?" 26 But Jesus looked at them* and* said to them, "With human beings this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." 27 Then Peter answered and* said to him, "Behold, we have left everything and followed you. What then will there be for us?" 28 And Jesus said to them, "Truly I say to you that in the renewal of the world,* when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me—you also will sit on twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife* or children or fields on account of my name will receive a hundred times as much, and will inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.

Hebrews 6:1-20

1 Therefore, leaving behind the elementary message about Christ, let us move on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and faith in God, 2 teaching about baptisms and laying on of hands, and resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment. 3 And this we will do, if God permits. 4 For it is impossible concerning those who have once been enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and become sharers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the coming age, 6 and having fallen away, to renew them again to repentance, because they* have crucified again for themselves the Son of God and held him up to contempt. 7 For ground that drinks the rain that comes often upon it, and brings forth vegetation usable to those people for whose sake* it is also cultivated, shares a blessing from God. 8 But if it* produces thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to a curse, whose end is for burning. 9 But even if we are speaking in this way, dear friends, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and belonging to salvation. 10 For God is not unjust, so as to forget your work and the love which you demonstrated for his name by* having served the saints, and continuing to serve them. 11 And we desire each one of you to demonstrate the same diligence for the full assurance of your hope until the end, 12 in order that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who inherit the promises through faith and patience. 13 For when* God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater to swear by, he swore by himself, 14 saying,
"Surely I will greatly bless* you, and I will greatly multiply* you." 15 And so, by* persevering, he obtained the promise. 16 For people swear by what is greater than themselves, and the oath for confirmation is the end of all dispute for them. 17 In the same way God, because he* wanted to show even more to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of his resolve, guaranteed it with an oath, 18 in order that through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge may have powerful encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us, 19 which we have like an anchor of the soul, both firm and steadfast, and entering into the inside of the curtain, 20 where Jesus, the forerunner for us, entered, because he* became a high priest forever* according to the order of Melchizedek.

Genesis 2:1-25

1 And heaven* and earth* and all their array* were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and he sanctified* it, because on it he rested from all his work of creating that there was to do.* 4 These are the generations* of heaven* and earth* when they were created, in the day that Yahweh God made earth and heaven*5 before any plant of the field was* on earth, and before any plant of the field* had sprung up, because Yahweh God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no human being to cultivate the ground, 6 but a stream would rise from the earth and water the whole face of the ground— 7 when* Yahweh God formed the man* of dust from the ground, and he blew into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. 8 And Yahweh God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he put the man* whom he had formed. 9 And Yahweh God caused to grow every tree that was pleasing to the sight and good for food. And the tree of life was in the midst of the garden, along with* the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10 Now* a river flowed out from Eden that watered the garden, and from there it diverged and became four branches. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon. It went around all the land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stones are there.) 13 And the name of the second is Gihon. It went around all the land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third is Tigris. It flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. 15 And Yahweh God took the man* and set him in the garden of Eden to cultivate it and to keep it. 16 And Yahweh God commanded the man,* saying, "From every tree of the garden you may freely eat,* 17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat* from it you shall surely die."* 18 Then* Yahweh God said, "it is not good that the man* is alone. I will make for him a helper as his counterpart."* 19 And out of the ground Yahweh God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky,* and he brought each to the man* to see what he would call it. And whatever the man* called that living creature was its name. 20 And the man* gave names* to every domesticated animal and to the birds of heaven* and to all the wild animals.* But for the man there was not found a helper as his counterpart.* 21 And Yahweh God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man.* While* he slept, he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh where it had been.* 22 And Yahweh God fashioned the rib which he had taken from the man* into a woman and brought her to the man.* 23 And the man* said,
"She is now* bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh; she* shall be called 'Woman,' for she was taken* from man." 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall cling to his wife, and they shall be as one flesh. 25 And the man* and his wife, both of them, were naked, and they were not ashamed.

Hebrews 11:3

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.

Genesis 1:3

3 And God said, "Let there be light!" And there was light.

Isaiah 42:5

5 Thus says the God, Yahweh, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and its offspring, who gives breath to the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it.

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.

John 1:1

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Isaiah 48:13

13 Indeed, my hand founded the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I summon* them, they stand in position together.

Genesis 1:1

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and 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.
