1 And Abraham moved from there to the land of the Negeb, and lived between Kadesh and Shur, and stayed in Gerar. 2 And Abraham said with regards to his wife Sarah, She is my sister. And Abimelech the king of Gerar sent and took Sarah. 3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night and said to him, Behold, you are about to die because of the woman you have taken, she being married to a husband. 4 And Abimelech had not come near her. And he said, O Lord, will You slay even a righteous nation? 5 And did he not say to me, She is my sister? And she, even she herself said, He is my brother. In the honor of my heart and the purity of my hands I have done this. 6 And God said to him in a dream, Yes, I know that you did this in the honor of your heart, and I also withheld you from sinning against Me. On account of this I did not allow you to touch her. 7 And now return the wife of the man, for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you, and you shall live. And if you do not return her, know that you shall surely die, you and all that are yours. 8 And Abimelech started up early in the morning and called for all his servants. And he spoke all these words in their ears. And the men were greatly afraid. 9 And Abimelech called Abraham and said to him, What have you done to us? And in what have I offended you that you have brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? You have done things to me that ought not to be done. 10 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What did you see that you have done this thing? 11 And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place, and they will kill me for my wife's sake. 12 And yet she really is my sister, daughter of my father; only not daughter of my mother. And she became my wife. 13 And it happened when God made me wander from my father's house I said to her, This is your kindness which you do to me: at every place where we come there, say of me, He is my brother. 14 Abimelech took sheep and oxen, and male slaves, and slave-girls, and gave to Abraham. And he returned his wife Sarah to him. 15 Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before you. Live where it pleases you. 16 And he said to Sarah, I, behold, I have given a thousand of silver to your brother. Behold, it is for you a covering of the eyes to all who are with you. And with all this you are justified. 17 And Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his concubines, and they gave birth. 18 For Jehovah had completely closed up every womb of the house of Abimelech because of Sarah, the wife of Abraham.

1 And these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And sons were born to them after the flood. 2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. 3 And Gomer's sons were Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. 4 And Javan's sons were Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5 The coasts of the nations were divided by these in their lands each by his tongue, by their families, in their nations. 6 And Ham's sons were Cush, and Mizraim, and Put, and Canaan. 7 And the sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha. And Raamah's sons were Sheba and Dedan. 8 And Cush fathered Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one in the land. 9 He was a mighty hunter before Jehovah; so it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before Jehovah. 10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11 From that land he went forth to Assyria and built Nineveh, and Rehoboth the city, and Calah, 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah, which is a great city. 13 And Mizraim fathered Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim, 14 and Pathrusim, and Casluhim, who from whom came the Philistines and Caphtorim. 15 And Canaan fathered his firstborn Sidon, and Heth, 16 and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite, 17 and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite, 18 and the Arvadite and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. And afterward the families of the Canaanites were dispersed. 19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as you come to Gerar, as far as Gaza, as you go in towards Sodom and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even to Lasha. 20 These were the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their tongues, in their countries, in their nations. 21 And to Shem was born, even to him, the father of all the sons of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder. 22 The sons of Shem were Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and Lud, and Aram. 23 And Aram's sons were Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash. 24 And Arpachshad fathered Salah; and Salah fathered Eber. 25 And two sons were born to Eber; the name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother's name was Joktan. 26 And Joktan fathered Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah, 27 and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah, 28 and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba, 29 and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab. These all were the sons of Joktan. 30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as you go to Sephar, an eastern mountain. 31 These were the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their tongues, in their lands, according to their nations. 32 These were the families of the sons of Noah, by their generations, in their nations. And from these the nations were divided in the earth after the flood.
1 And Abraham moved from there to the land of the Negeb, and lived between Kadesh and Shur, and stayed in Gerar.
1 See what manner of love the Father has given us, that we may be called children of God. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are the children of God, and it was not yet revealed what we shall be. But we know that if He is revealed, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.
1 We announce to you what was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we beheld, and what our hands touched, as regards the Word of Life. 2 And the Life was revealed, and we have seen, and we bear witness, and we announce to you the everlasting Life which was with the Father, and was revealed to us. 3 We announce to you what we have seen, and what we have heard, that you also may have fellowship with us. And truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ. 4 And we write these things to you, that your joy may be full. 5 And this is the message which we have heard from Him, and we announce to you: God is light, and no darkness is in Him, none! 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and we walk in darkness, we lie and are not practicing 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 His Son Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous that He may forgive us the sins, and may 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.
1 And after these things it happened, one said to Joseph, Behold, your father is sick. And he took his two sons with him, Manasseh and Ephraim. 2 And one spoke to Jacob and said, Behold, your son Joseph has come to you. And Israel took strength and sat on the bed. 3 And Jacob said to Joseph, God Almighty 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 will multiply you, and will make you a multitude of peoples. And I will give this land to your seed after you as a continual possession. 5 And now your two sons, those born to you in the land of Egypt before my coming to you in Egypt, are mine, Ephraim and Manasseh, like Reuben and Simeon, even they shall be mine. 6 And your offspring which you father after them, they shall be yours. According to the name of their brothers they shall be called in their inheritance. 7 And I, when I came from Padan, Rachel died on me in the land of Canaan in the way, with only a little way to come to Ephrath. And I buried her there in the way to Ephrath, it being Bethlehem. 8 And Israel saw the sons of Joseph, and he said, Who are these? 9 And Joseph said to his father, They are my sons, whom God has given to me here. And he said, Now bring them to me and I will bless them. 10 And the eyes of Israel were heavy from age, he not being able to see. And he brought them near to him. And he kissed them and embraced them. 11 And Israel said to Joseph, I did not think to see your face, and, behold, God also causes me to see your seed. 12 And Joseph brought them out from his knees; and he bowed his face to the earth. 13 And Joseph took both of them, Ephraim in his right hand, to the left of Israel; and Manasseh in his left hand, to the right of Israel. And he brought them to him. 14 And Israel sent forth his right hand and put it on the head of Ephraim; and he was the younger. And he put his left hand on the head of Manasseh, crossing his hands; for Manasseh was the first born. 15 And he blessed Joseph and said, The God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God who has fed me since I was born until today; 16 The Angel that redeemed me from every evil, may He bless the youths; and may my name be called on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac, and may they like the fishes increase into a multitude in the midst of the earth. 17 And Joseph saw that his father was putting his right hand on the head of Ephraim; and it was evil in his eyes. And he took hold of his father's hand to turn it from Ephraim's head to the head of Manasseh. 18 And Joseph said to his father, Not so, my father! For this one is the first born; put your right hand on his head. 19 And his father refused and said, I know, my son, I know. He also shall be a people, and he shall become great. But his younger brother shall become greater than he, and his seed shall become the fullness of the nations. 20 And he blessed them in that day, saying, In you shall Israel bless, saying, May God make you like Ephraim and like Manasseh. 21 And Israel said to Joseph, See, I am dying; and God will be with you, and will return you to the land of your fathers. 22 And I will give to you one spur of land beyond your brothers, which I took from the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.
7 If you do well, is there not exaltation? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is toward you; but you should rule over it.
1 And God remembered Noah and every living thing, and all the cattle which were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. 2 And the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were stopped, and the rain from the heavens was restrained. 3 And the waters retreated from the earth, going and retreating. And the waters diminished at the end of a hundred and fifty days. 4 And in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark rested on the mountains of Ararat. 5 And the waters were going and falling until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen. 6 And it happened, at the end of forty days, even Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made. 7 And he sent out a raven, and it went out, going out and returning until the waters were dried up from off the earth. 8 He also sent out from him the dove, to see if the waters had gone down from off the face of the earth. 9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned to him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of all the earth. And he put out his hand and took her, and pulled her in to him into the ark. 10 And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark. 11 And the dove came into him in the evening. And, behold! In her mouth was a newly plucked olive leaf. So Noah knew that the waters had gone down from off the earth. 12 And he waited another seven days and sent forth the dove. And she did not return again to him any more. 13 And it happened in the six hundred and first year, at the beginning, on the first of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth. And Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked. And, behold! The face of the earth was dried. 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 of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons and your sons' wives with you. 17 Bring out from you every living thing that is with you, of all flesh, of fowl, of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creeps on the earth; and let them swarm on the earth, and bear, and multiply on the earth. 18 And Noah went out, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons wives with him; 19 every animal, every creeping thing, and every fowl; all which creeps on the earth. They went forth out of the ark according to their families. 20 And Noah built an altar to Jehovah, and took of every clean animal, and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 And Jehovah smelled the soothing fragrance, and Jehovah said in His heart, I will never again curse the ground for the sake of man, because the imagination of the heart of man is evil from his youth. Yea, I will not again smite every living thing as I have done; 22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
26 And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth. 27 And God created the man in His own image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female. 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 over birds of the heavens, and over all beasts creeping on the earth.
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth; 2 and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters, 3 then God said, Let light be! And there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good, and God separated between the light and darkness. 5 And God called the light, Day. And He called the darkness, Night. And there was evening, and there was morning the first day. 6 And God said, Let an expanse be in the midst of the waters, and let it divide between the waters and the waters. 7 And God made the expanse, and He separated between the waters which were under the expanse and the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so. 8 And God called the expanse, Heavens. And there was evening, and there was morning the second day. 9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected to one place, and let the dry land appear. And it was so. 10 And God called the dry land, Earth. And He called the collection of the waters, Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so. 12 And the earth bore tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed according to its kind, and the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning the third day. 14 And God said, Let luminaries be in the expanse of the heavens, to divide between the day and the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years. 15 And let them be for luminaries in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth. And it was so. 16 And God made the two great luminaries: the great luminary to rule the day, and the small luminary and the stars to rule the night. 17 And God set them in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night; and to divide between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning the fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters swarm with swarmers having a soul of life; and let the birds fly over the earth, on the face of the expanse of the heavens. 21 And God created the great sea animals, and all that creeps, having a living soul, which swarmed the waters, according to its kind; and every bird with wing 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 in the earth. 23 And there was evening, and there was morning the fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the soul of life according to its kind: cattle, and creepers, and its beasts of the earth, according to its kind. And it was so. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to its kind, and cattle according to its kind, and all creepers of the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth. 27 And God created the man in His own image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female. 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 over birds of the heavens, and over all beasts creeping on the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every plant seeding seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree seeding seed; it shall be food for you. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to all birds of the heavens, and to every creeper on the earth which has in it a living soul, every green plant is for 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 the sixth day.
