1 And Abraham departed thence toward the south country and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur and sojourned in Gerar. 2 And Abraham said of Sara his wife, that she was his sister. Then Abimelech, king of Gerar, sent and fetched Sara away. 3 And God came to Abimelech by night in a dream and said to him, "See, thou art but a dead man for the woman's sake which thou hast taken away, for she is a man's wife." 4 But Abimelech had not yet come nigh her, and therefore said, "LORD, wilt thou slay righteous people? 5 Said not he unto me, that she was his sister? Yea, and said not she herself that he was her brother? With a pure heart and innocent hands have I done this!" 6 And God said unto him in a dream, "I know it well that thou didst it in the pureness of thy heart: And therefore I kept thee that thou shouldest not sin against me, neither suffered I thee to come nigh her. 7 Now, therefore, deliver the man his wife again, for he is a prophet. And let him pray for thee that thou mayest live. But and if thou deliver her not again, be sure that thou shalt die the death, with all that thou hast." 8 Then Abimelech rose up betimes in the morning and called all his servants, and told all these things in their ears, and the men were sore afraid. 9 And Abimelech called Abraham and said unto him, "What hast thou done unto us, and what have I offended thee, that thou shouldest bring on me and on my kingdom so great a sin? Thou hast done deeds unto me that ought not to be done." 10 And Abimelech said moreover unto Abraham, "What sawest thou that moved thee to do this thing?" 11 And Abraham answered, "I thought that peradventure the fear of God was not in this place, and that they should slay me for my wife's sake: 12 yet in very deed she is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not of my mother: and became my wife. 13 And after God caused me to wander out of my father's house, I said unto her, 'This kindness shalt thou show unto me in all places where we come, that thou say of me, how that I am thy brother.'" 14 Then took Abimelech sheep and oxen, menservants and womenservants, and gave them unto Abraham, and delivered him Sara his wife again. 15 And Abimelech said, "Behold, the land lieth before thee: dwell where it pleaseth thee best." 16 And unto Sara he said, "See, I have given thy brother a thousand pieces of silver, behold this thing shall be a covering to thine eyes unto all that are with thee and unto all men and an excuse." 17 And so Abraham prayed unto God, and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his maidens, so that they bare. 18 For the LORD had closed to all the matrices of the house of Abimelech, because of Sara, Abraham's wife.

20 Ye thought evil unto me: but God turned it unto good to bring to pass, as it is this day, even to save much people alive.
1 These are the generations of the sons of Noah: of Shem, Ham and Japheth, which begat them children after the flood. 2 The sons of Japheth were: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech and Tiras. 3 And the sons of Gomer were: Ashkenaz, Riphath and Togarmah. 4 And the sons of Javan were: Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5 Of these came the Isles of the gentiles in their countries, every man in his speech, kindred and nation. 6 The sons of Ham were: Cush, Mizraim, Phut and Canaan. 7 The sons of Cush: were Seva, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah and Sabteca. And the sons of Raamah were: Sheba, and Dedan. 8 Cush also begot Nimrod, which began to be mighty in the earth: 9 He was a mighty hunter in the sight of the LORD, whereof came the proverb "he is as Nimrod, that mighty hunter in the sight of the LORD." 10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar: 11 Out of that land came Assyria, and built Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah. That is a great city. 13 And Mizraim begat Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, 14 Pathrusim and Casluhim: from whence came the Philistines, and the Caphthorines. 15 Canaan also begat Sidon his eldest son and Heth, 16 Jebusi, Amori, Girgosi, 17 Hivi, Arki, Sini, 18 Arvadi, Zemari and Hamathi. And afterward sprang the kindreds of the Canaanites. 19 And the coasts of the Canaanites were from Sidon till thou come to Gerar and to Gaza, and till thou come to Sodom, Gomorrah, Adma, Zeboiim: even unto Lasha. 20 These were the children of Ham in their kindreds, tongues, lands and nations. 21 And Shem the father of all the children of Eber and the eldest brother of Japheth, begat children also. 22 And his sons were: Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud and Aram. 23 And the children of Aram were: Uz, Hul, Gether and Mash. 24 And Arpachshad begat Shelah, and Sheleh begat Eber. 25 And Eber begat two sons. The name of the one was Peleg, for in his time the earth was divided. And the name of his brother was Joktan. 26 Joktan begat Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29 Ophir, Havilah and Jobab. All these are the sons of Joktan. 30 And the dwelling of them was from Mesha until thou come unto Sephar, a mountain of the east land. 31 These are the sons of Shem in their kindreds, languages, countries and nations. 32 These are the kindreds of the sons of Noah, in their generations and nations. And of these came the people that were in the world after the flood.

1 Behold what love the father hath showed on us, that we should be called the sons of God. For this cause the world knoweth you not; because it knoweth not him. 2 Dearly beloved, now are we the sons of God, and yet it doth not appear what we shall be. But we know that when it shall appear, we shall be like him. For we shall see him as he is.
1 That which was from the beginning, declare we unto you; which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the word of life. 2 For the life appeared: and we have seen, and bear witness, and show unto you that eternal life, which was with the father, and appeared unto us. 3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye may have fellowship with us, and that our fellowship may be with the father, and his son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things we write unto you, that your joy may be full. 5 And this is the tidings which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and yet walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7 but and if we walk in light even as he is in light, then have we fellowship together, and the blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and truth is not in us. 9 If we knowledge our sins, he is faithful and just, to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
1 after these deeds, tidings were brought unto Joseph, that his father was sick. And he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim. 2 Then was it said unto Jacob, "Behold, thy son Joseph cometh unto thee." And Israel took his strength unto him, and sat up on the bed, 3 and said unto Joseph, "God almighty appeared unto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me, 4 and said unto me, "Behold, I will make thee grow and will multiply thee, and will make a great number of people of thee, and will give this land unto thee, and unto thy seed after thee, unto an everlasting possession. 5 Now therefore thy two sons Manasseh and Ephraim which were born unto thee before I came to thee, into Egypt, shall be mine: even as Reuben and Simeon shall they be unto me. 6 And the children which thou gettest after them, shall be thine own: but shall be called with the names of their brethren in their inheritances. 7 And after I came from Mesopotamia, Rachel died upon my hand in the land of Canaan, by the way: when I had but a field's breadth to go unto Ephrata. And I buried her there in the way to Ephrata which is now called Bethlehem." 8 And Israel beheld Joseph's sons, and said, "What are these?" 9 And Joseph said unto his father, "They are my sons, which God hath given me here." And he said, "Bring them to me, and let me bless them." 10 And the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see. And he brought them to him, and he kissed them and embraced them. 11 And Israel said unto Joseph, "I had not thought to have seen thy face, and yet lo, God hath showed it me and also thy seed." 12 And Joseph took them away from his lap, and they fell on the ground before him. 13 Then took Joseph them both: Ephraim in his righthand, toward Israel's lefthand, and Manasseh in his lefthand, toward Israel's righthand, and brought them unto him. 14 And Israel stretched out his righthand and laid it upon Ephraim's head which was the younger, and his lefthand upon Manasseh's head, crossing his hands; for Manasseh was the elder. 15 And he blessed Joseph saying, "God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, and the God which hath fed me all my life long unto this day; 16 And the angel which hath delivered me from all evil, bless these lads: that they may be called after my name, and after my father Abraham and Isaac, and that they may grow and multiply upon the earth." 17 When Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him. And he lift up his father's hand, to have removed it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head, 18 and said unto his father, "Not so my father, for this is the eldest. Put thy righthand upon his head." 19 And his father would not, but said, "I know it well my son, I know it well. He shall be also a people and shall be great. But of a truth his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall be full of people." 20 And he blessed them, saying, "At the example of these, the Israelites shall bless and say, 'God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh.'" Thus set he Ephraim before Manasseh. 21 And Israel said unto Joseph, "Behold, I die. And God shall be with you and bring you again unto the land of your fathers. 22 Moreover, I give unto thee a portion of land above thy brethren which I gat out of the hands of the Amorites with my sword and with my bow."
7 But and if thou dost evil, by and by thy sin lieth open in the door. Notwithstanding, let it be subdued unto thee, and see thou rule it."
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 blow upon the earth, and the waters ceased; 2 and the fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain of heaven was forbidden, 3 and the waters returned from off the earth and abated after the end of a hundred and fifty days. 4 And the ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat, the seventeenth day of the seventh month. 5 And the waters went away, and decreased until the tenth month. And the first day of the tenth month, the tops of the mountains appeared. 6 And after the end of forty days, Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made, 7 and sent forth a raven, which went out, ever going and coming again, until the waters were dried up upon the earth. 8 Then sent he forth a dove from him, to wete whether the waters were fallen from off the earth. 9 And when the dove could find no resting place for her foot, she returned to him again unto the ark, for the waters were upon the face of all the earth. And he put out his hand and took her and pulled her to him into the ark. 10 And he abode yet seven days more, and sent out the dove again out of the ark; 11 and the dove came to him again about eventide, and behold: there was in her mouth a leaf of an olive tree which she had plucked, whereby Noah perceived that the waters were abated upon the earth. 12 And he tarried yet seven other days, and sent forth the dove, which from thenceforth came no more again to him. 13 And it came to pass, the six hundred and one year and the first day of the first month, that the waters were dried up upon the earth. And Noah took off the hatches of the ark and looked: and behold, the face of the earth was dry. 14 So by the twenty seventh day of the second month the earth was dry. 15 And God spake unto Noah saying, 16 "Come out of the ark, both thou and thy wife and thy sons and thy sons' wives with thee. 17 And all the beasts that are with thee whatsoever flesh it be, both fowl and cattle and all manner worms that creep on the earth, bring out with thee, and let them move, grow and multiply upon the earth." 18 And Noah came out, and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him. 19 All the beasts also, and all the worms, and all the fowls, and all that crept upon the earth, went out of the ark, every one unto his like. 20 And Noah made an altar unto the LORD, and took of all manner of clean beasts and all manner of clean fowls, and offered sacrifice upon the altar. 21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour and said in his heart, "I will henceforth no more curse the earth for man's sake, for the imagination of man's heart is evil even from the very youth of him. Moreover I will not destroy from henceforth all that liveth as I have done. 22 Neither shall sowing time and harvest, cold, and heat, summer and winter, day and night cease, as long as the earth endureth."
26 And God said, "Let us make man in our similitude and after our likeness: that he may have rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over all worms that creep on the earth." 27 And God created man after his likeness, after the likeness of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, "Grow and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over all the beasts that move on the earth.
1 In the beginning God created heaven and earth. 2 The Earth was void and empty and darkness was upon the deep, and the spirit of God moved upon the water. 3 Then God said, "Let there be light." And there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good: and divided the light from the darkness, 5 and called the light "day," and the darkness "night." And so of the evening and morning was made the first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be a firmament between the waters, and let it divide the waters asunder." 7 Then God made the firmament, and parted the waters which were under the firmament, from the waters that were above the firmament: And it was so. 8 And God called the firmament "heaven." And so of the evening and morning was made the second day. 9 And God said, "Let the waters that are under heaven gather themselves unto one place, that the dry land may appear." And it came so to pass. 10 And God called the dry land "the earth" and the gathering together of waters called he "the sea." And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth herb and grass that sow seed, and fruitful trees that bear fruit, every one in his kind, having their seed in themselves, upon the earth." And it came so to pass. 12 And the earth brought forth herb and grass sowing seed, every one in his kind, and trees bearing fruit and having their seed in themselves, every one in his kind. And God saw that it was good: 13 and then of the evening and morning was made the third day. 14 Then said God, "Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven, to divide the day from the night; that they may be unto signs, seasons, days and years. 15 And let them be lights in the firmament of heaven, to shine upon the earth." And so it was. 16 And God made two great lights: a greater light to rule the day, and a lesser light to rule the night; and he made stars also. 17 And God put them in the firmament of heaven to shine upon the earth, 18 and to rule the day and the night, and to divide the light from darkness. And God saw that it was good: 19 and so of the evening and morning was made the fourth day. 20 And God said, "Let the water bring forth creatures that move and have life, and fowls for to fly over the earth under the firmament of heaven." 21 And God created great whales and all manner of creatures that live and move, which the waters brought forth in their kinds, and all manner of feathered fowls in their kinds. And God saw that it was good: 22 and God blessed them, saying, "Grow and multiply, and fill the waters of the seas, and let the fowls multiply upon the earth." 23 And so of the evening and morning was made the fifth day. 24 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures in their kinds: cattle and worms and beasts of the earth in their kinds." And so it came to pass. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth in their kinds, and cattle in their kinds, and all manner worms of the earth in their kinds: and God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, "Let us make man in our similitude and after our likeness: that he may have rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over all worms that creep on the earth." 27 And God created man after his likeness, after the likeness of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, "Grow and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over all the beasts that move on the earth. 29 And God said, "See, I have given you all herbs that sow seed which are on all the earth, and all manner trees that have fruit in them and sow seed; to be meat for you, 30 and for all beasts of the earth, and unto all fowls of the air, and unto all that creepeth on the earth wherein is life, that they may have all manner herbs and grass for to eat." And even so it was. 31 And God beheld all that he had made, and lo they were exceeding good: and so of the evening and morning was made the sixth day.
