Genesis 1:26

Psalms 139:13-14

13 Because thou, Lord, hast possessed my reins; hast supported me from my mother's womb; 14 I will adore thee, for thou art awfully wonderful. Thy works are wonderful; as my soul well knoweth.

John 1:1-51

1 In the beginning was the Word; and the Word was with God; and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 By him all things were made, and without him there was not made one single thing. 4 What was in him was life, and this life was the light of men, 5 and this light shineth in the darkness, and the darkness did not reach it. 6 There was a man sent from God: his name was John. 7 This man came as a witness to bear witness concerning this light, that by means of him all might believe. 8 He was not the light, but was to bear witness concerning the light. 9 The light [the true light which enlighteneth every man] coming into the world 10 was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came to his own peculiar territories, and his own peculiar people did not receive him. 12 But to as many as received him he granted the privilege of becoming children of God, even to them who believe in his name, 13 who were born, not of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 Now the Word became incarnate, and dwelt as in a tent among us, and we beheld his glory; a glory as of an only begotten from the father. He was full of grace and truth. 15 Of him John testifieth when he cried, saying, "This is he of whom I said, He who is coming after me is preferred before me, for he was before me." 16 And of his fulness we have all received even grace for grace. 17 Because the law was given by Moses grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 18 No one hath ever seen God. This only begotten son, who is in the bosom of the father, even he hath made him known. 19 Now this is the testimony of John: when the Jews of Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him, Who art thou? 20 He frankly declared and did not deny, but frankly declared, I am not the Christ. 21 Then they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he said, I am not: art thou the prophet And he answered, No. 22 Then they said to him, Who art thou? That we may give an answer to them who sent us: What sayest thou of thyself? 23 He said, I am "The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord," as the prophet Esaias said. 24 Now they who were sent were of the Pharisees. 25 Then they asked him and said to him, Why then dost thou baptize, if thou art not the Christ, nor Elias, nor the prophet? 26 John answered them saying, I baptize in water; but there is one in the midst of you, whom you know not. 27 He is the person who is coming after me; who is preferred to me, the latchet of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie. 28 These things passed at Bethabara on the bank of the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming towards him, and saith, Behold the lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world! 30 this is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man who hath been before me; for he existed before me. 31 As for me, I did not know him; but to the end that he might be made manifest to Israel; for this purpose I came baptizing in water. 32 Moreover John testified saying, I beheld the Spirit descending like a dove from heaven, and it remained upon him. 33 Now for my part I did not know him; but he who sent me to baptize in water, even he said to me, On whomsoever thou shalt see the spirit descending and remaining on him, the same is he who baptizeth in a holy spirit. 34 Now I have Seen and testified that this is The Son Of God. 35 Again, on the next day, John was standing with two of his disciples, 36 and having fixed his eyes intently on Jesus as he was walking, he saith, Behold the lamb of God! 37 and the two disciples heard him speaking, and followed Jesus. 38 When Jesus turned and saw them following him, he saith to them, What seek ye? And they said to him, Rabbi, [the meaning of which, when interpreted, is Teacher] where dost thou make thine abode? 39 He saith to them, Come and see. They went and saw where he made his abode, and staid with him that day; for it was about the tenth hour. 40 Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus. 41 He first findeth his brother Simon, and saith to him, We have found the Messias, [the meaning of which is the Christ] [the anointed] 42 and brought him to Jesus. And Jesus, having looked earnestly on him, said, Thou art Simon the son of Jonas. Thou shalt be called Cephas [the meaning of which is the same as that of Peter] [a rock.] 43 On the day following Jesus determined to set out for Galilee, and finding Philip, he saith to him, Come with me. 44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip finding Nathaniel, saith to him, We have found him of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets have written, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. 46 Upon which Nathaniel saith to him, Of Nazareth can there be any thing good! Philip saith to him, Come and see. 47 Jesus saw Nathaniel coming to him and saith respecting him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no guile! 48 Nathaniel saith to him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus in reply said to him, Before Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. 49 In answer to this, Nathaniel said to him, Rabbi, thou art the son of God. Thou art the king of Israel. 50 Jesus answered and said to him, Because I told thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, dost thou believe? Thou shalt see greater things than these. 51 Then he saith to him, Verily, verily I say to you, Hereafter you shall see the heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the son of man.

2 Peter 3:3-6

3 knowing this first, that in the last day scoffers will come, walking after their own desires, 4 and saying, "Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." 5 For this they wilfully forget, that by the word of God there were heavens of old, and an earth consisting of water and in water, 6 by which the world that then existed, being deluged, was destroyed;

2 Peter 3:8

8 Now let not this one thing, my beloved, escape you, That with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day.

Romans 1:20-27

20 for his invisible attributes, both his eternal power and divine majesty, being thought upon, are from the creation of the world clearly discoverable by the things made, so that they are without excuse 21 because when they knew God, they did not glorify him as God, nor give him thanks, but became vain by their ill- grounded reasonings, and their foolish heart was darkened; 22 pretending to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God for an image representing coruptible man, and birds, and four footed beasts, and reptiles; 24 therefore God delivered them up, by the desires of their own hearts, to impurity, that by themselves their own bodies might be dishonoured. 25 They changed the truth of God for a falsity, and worshipped and served the creature, and not the creator who is blessed forever, Amen: 26 therefore God gave them up to infamous passions; for even their women perverted the instinct of nature; 27 and in like manner the males also leaving the sex, were inflamed with desires towards each other, which they most shamefully indulged, men with men, and received in themselves the retribution which was justly due to their error.

Genesis 1:21

21 God indeed made the great sea monsters and every species of moving animals which the waters produced according to their kinds, and every winged flying creature according to kind. And God saw that they were good.

Isaiah 44:24-25

24 [J] Thus saith the Lord, who redeemed thee; even He who formed thee from the womb; I am the Lord the Maker of all things; I alone stretched out the heavens and firmly established the earth. 25 Who else can dispel from the heart the signs of belly speakers and divinations? I am he who turneth sages backwards and maketh their counsel foolish;

Colossians 2:8

8 Be on your guard, that none may make a prey of you by their philosophy and vain deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ.

Hebrews 11:1-3

1 Now, faith is a confident expectation of things hoped for; a convincement of the mind with respect to the reality of things not seen. 2 By this therefore the ancients obtained reputation. 3 By faith we understand that the ages were arranged by a word of God, that the things seen should not at all be out of things which appear.

Colossians 1:16-17

16 Because all the things which are in the heavens and which are on the earth were created by him, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers, they were all created by him, and for him; 17 therefore he is before all, and they are all kept in consistence by him,
