Genesis 20:1-18

1 And Abraham traveled from there toward the land of the South and dwelt between Kadesh and Shur. And he traveled in Gerar. 2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister. And Abimelech King of Gerar sent and took Sarah. 3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream of the night and said to him, Behold, you are but a dead man, over the woman whom you have taken; she is a man's wife.
4 Now Abimelech had not come near her. And he said, Lord, will you kill even a righteous nation? 5 Did he not himself say to me, She is my sister? And she, even she herself said, He is my brother. In the integrity of my heart and the innocence of my hands I have done this.
6 And God said to him in the dream, Yes, I know that in the integrity of your heart you have done this. And I also withheld you from sinning against me. Therefore I did not allow you to touch her. 7 Now therefore restore the man's wife. For he is a prophet and he will pray for you and you will live. And if you do not restore her, you will know that you will surely die, you and all who are yours.
8 And Abimelech rose early in the morning and called all his servants and told all these things in their ears. And the men were exceedingly afraid.
9 Then Abimelech called Abraham and said to him, What have you done to us? And in what way have I sinned against you, that you have brought such a great sin on me and on my kingdom? You have done deeds 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 because of my wife. 12 And moreover she is indeed my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother and she became my wife. 13 And it happened, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said to her, This is your kindness which you will show to me. At every place where we will come, say of me, He is my brother.
14 And Abimelech took sheep and oxen and men-servants and women-servants and gave them to Abraham and restored to him Sarah his wife. 15 And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before you. Dwell where it pleases you. 16 And to Sarah he said, Behold, I have given your brother a thousand pieces of silver. Behold, it is for you a covering of the eyes to all who are with you. And you are correct in regard to all this.
17 And Abraham prayed to God and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his maid-servants. And they bore children. 18 For Jehovah had closed up fast all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.

Genesis 50:20

20 And as for you*, you* meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save many people alive.

Genesis 10:1-32

1 Now these are the genealogies of the sons of Noah, of Shem, Ham and Japheth. And the sons who were born to them after the flood.
2 The sons of Japheth were : Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan and Tubal and Meshech and Tiras.
3 And the sons of Gomer were : Ashkenaz and Riphath and Togarmah. 4 And the sons of Javan were : Elishah and Tarshish, Kittim and Dodanim.
5 From these were the islands of the nations divided in their lands, every man according to his tongue, according to their families, in their nations.
6 And the sons of Ham were : Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan.

7 And the sons of Cush were : Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabteca. And the sons of Raamah were : Sheba and Dedan.
8 And Cush fathered Nimrod. He began to be a mighty man on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before Jehovah. Therefore it is said, Like Nimrod a 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 He went forth out of that land into Assyria and built Nineveh and Rehoboth-ir and Calah 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city.
13 And Mizraim fathered Ludim and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuhim 14 and Pathrusim and Casluhim (from where the Philistines went forth) and Caphtorim. 15 And Canaan fathered Sidon his firstborn 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 Canaanite family were spread abroad. 19 And the border of the Canaanite was from Sidon, as you go toward Gerar, to Gaza, as you go toward Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboiim, to Lasha.
20 These are the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands, in their nations.

25 And to Eber were born two sons. 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. All these were the sons of Joktan. 30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as you go toward Sephar, the mountain of the east.
31 These are the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands, according to their nations.
32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, according to their genealogies, in their nations and from these the nations were divided on the earth after the flood.

Genesis 20:1

1 And Abraham traveled from there toward the land of the South and dwelt between Kadesh and Shur. And he traveled in Gerar.

1 John 3:1-2

1 Behold what sort of love the Father has given to us, in order that we might be called children of God. Because of this, the world does not know you, because it did not know him. 2 Beloved, we are now the children of God and it was not yet manifested what we will be. But we know that, if he is manifested, we will be similar to him, because we will be seeing 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 saw and our hands touched, concerning the Word of life 2 and the life was manifested and we have seen and are testifying and reporting to you the everlasting life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us. 3 What we have seen and have heard, we report to you, in order that you may also have fellowship with us, but also our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ; 4 and we are writing these things, in order that our joy may be fulfilled.
5 And this is the message which we have heard from him and are reporting to you, that God is light and there is no darkness in him–none at all. 6 If we should say that we have fellowship with him and then should walk in the darkness, we are lying to ourselves, and we 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 Jesus Christ his Son is cleansing us from every sin. 8 If we should say that we have no sin, we are misleading ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we should say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar and his word is not in us.


Genesis 48:1-22

1 And it happened after these things, that it was reported to Joseph, Behold, your father is sick. And he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim. 2 And it was reported to Jacob, saying, Behold, your son Joseph comes to you. And Israel strengthened himself and sat upon the bed.
3 And Jacob said to Joseph, God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan and blessed me, 4 and said to me, Behold, I will make you fruitful and multiply you and I will make of you a company of peoples and will give this land to your seed after you for an everlasting possession.
5 And now your two sons, who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you into Egypt, are mine, Ephraim and Manasseh, even as Reuben and Simeon, will be mine. 6 And your offspring, which you father after them, will be your, they will be called after the name of their brothers in their inheritance.
7 And as for me, when I came from Paddan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan on the way, when there was still some distance to come to Ephrath. And I buried her there on the way to Ephrath (what is Bethlehem).
8 And Israel beheld Joseph's sons and said, Who are these? 9 And Joseph said to his father, They are my sons, whom God has given me here. And he said, I beseech you, bring them to me and I will bless them.
10 Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see. And he brought them near to him and he kissed them and embraced them. 11 And Israel said to Joseph, I had not thought to see your face, and behold, God has let me see your seed also.
12 And Joseph brought them out from between his knees and he bowed himself with his face to the earth. 13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel's left hand and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel's right hand and brought them near to him.
14 And Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was the younger and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding his hands deliberately, because Manasseh was the firstborn.
15 And he blessed Joseph and said, The God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God who has fed me all my life long to this day, 16 the messenger who has redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads and let my name be named on them and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.
17 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him. And he held up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head to Manasseh's head. 18 And Joseph said to his father, Not so, my father, because this is the firstborn, put your right hand upon his head.
19 And his father refused and said, I know, my son, I know. He also will become a people and he also will be great. However, his younger brother will be greater than he and his seed will become a multitude of nations. 20 And he blessed them that day, saying, In you will Israel bless, saying, God make you like Ephraim and like Manasseh. And he set Ephraim before Manasseh.
21 And Israel said to Joseph, Behold, I die, but God will be with you* and bring you* again to the land of your* fathers. 22 Moreover I have given to you one portion above your brothers, which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.

Genesis 4:7

7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin crouches at the door. Its desire will be for you and you should rule over it.

Genesis 8:1-22

1 And God remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the cattle that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth and the waters subsided. 2 Also the fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped and the rain from heaven was restrained. 3 And the waters returned from the earth, going and returning. And after the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters decreased.
4 And the ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month. 5 And the waters decreased, going and returning until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.
6 And it happened at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made. 7 And he sent out a raven. And it went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from the earth. 8 And he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters had abated from the face of the ground. 9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot. And she returned to him to the ark, because the waters were on the face of the whole earth. And he put out his hand and took her and brought her in, to him and into the ark.
10 And he stayed yet another seven days and again he sent out the dove out of the ark. 11 And the dove came in, in the evening to him. And behold, in her mouth an olive leaf plucked off, so Noah knew that the waters were abated from the earth.
12 And he stayed yet seven other 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, in the first month of the year and the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from the earth. And Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked. And behold, the face of the ground was nearly dried. 14 And the earth was dry in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month.
15 And God spoke to Noah, saying, 16 Go forth from the ark, you and your wife and your sons and your sons' wives with you. 17 Bring forth with you every living thing that is with you, of all flesh, both birds and cattle and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth, that they may breed abundantly on the earth and be fruitful and multiply upon the earth.
18 And Noah went forth and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him. 19 Every beast, every creeping thing and every bird, whatever moves upon the earth, according to their families, went forth out of the ark.
20 And Noah built an altar to Jehovah and took of every clean beast and of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 And Jehovah smelled the sweet aroma. And Jehovah said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for the sake of man, because the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth. I will not again kill* everything living, as I have done. 22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest and cold and heat and summer and winter and day and night will not cease.

Genesis 1:26-28

26 And God said, Let Us make man in our image–after our likeness–and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. 27 And God created 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 have power over it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep and the Spirit of God fluttered upon the face 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 divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
6 And God said, Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the expanse and divided the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so. 8 And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together 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 gathering together of the waters Seas. And God saw that it was good.
11 And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit (which has seed in it) according to their kind upon the earth. And it was so.
12 And the earth brought out grass, herbs yielding seed according to their kind and trees bearing fruit (which has seed in it), according to their 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 expanse of heaven to divide the day from the night and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years. 15 And let them be for lights in the expanse of heaven to give light upon the earth. And it was so.
16 And God made the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night and also the stars. 17 And God set them in the expanse of heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night and to divide the light from the 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 above the earth in the open expanse of heaven. 21 And God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought out abundantly, according to their kind and every winged bird 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 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 creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kind. And it was so.
25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kind and the cattle according to their kind and everything that creeps upon the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
26 And God said, Let Us make man in our image–after our likeness–and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. 27 And God created 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 have power over it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you* every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed. To you* it will be for food, 30 and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps upon the earth in which there is life and to you * every green herb, 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.
