1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was invisible and unfurnished and there was darkness over this abyss; and a breath of God was brought on above the water. 3 And God said, "Let there be Light;" and there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good. And God made a separation between the light and the darkness. 5 And God called the light day; and the darkness he called night. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The first day. 6 Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water; and let it make a separation between water and water." And it was so. God made the firmament; and God made a separation between the water which was below the firmament

8 and the water which was above the firmament. And God called the firmament, heaven. And God saw that it was good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The second day. 9 Then God said, "Let the water which is below the heaven be gathered into one receptacle and let the dry land appear." 10 And it was so. The waters which were below the heaven were gathered into their several collections, and the dry land appeared. And God called the dry land, earth; and the collections of the waters he called, seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth produce the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit bearing tree together with the fruit, the seed of which is in it according to kind, upon the earth." And it was so. 12 The earth indeed produced the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit tree together with fruit, the seed of which is in it, according to kind, in the earth. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The third day. 14 Then God said, "Let there be luminaries in the firmament of heaven, to give light on the earth; to make a separation between the day and the night: and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years; 15 and let them be for an illumination in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth." And it was so. 16 God indeed made the two great luminaries, the greater luminary for the regulations of the day, and the lesser luminary, with the stars, for the regulations of the night. 17 And God placed them in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth, 18 and to regulate the day and the night, and to make a division between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fourth day. 20 Then God said, "Let the waters produce moving creatures having life; and winged creatures flying above the earth in the open firmament of heaven." And it was so. 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. 22 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let flying creatures be multiplied on the earth." 23 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fifth day. 24 Then God said, "Let the earth produce animal life according to kind; four footed beasts and reptiles and wild beasts of the earth according to kind." And it was so. 25 God indeed made the wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and the cattle according to their kind, and all the reptiles of the earth according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 26 Then God said, "Let us make man after our image and after a likeness; and let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the cattle, and the whole earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 27 So God made man. After an image of God he made him. A male and a female he made them. 28 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all the cattle, and all the earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 29 Moreover God said, "Behold I have given you every seed bearing plant, the sowing seed which is on the whole earth, and every tree which hath in itself the fruit of seminal seed, you shall have for food: 30 And to all the beasts of the earth, and to all the birds of the air, and to every reptile on the earth, which hath in it animal life, I have also given every green herb for food." And it was so. 31 And God saw all the things which he had made, and behold they were very good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The sixth day.
13 And on the morrow Moses sat to administer justice to the people, and all the people attended on Moses from early in the morning till late in the evening. 14 And when Jothor saw all that he did for the people, he said, What is this that thou dost for the people? Why hast thou sitten alone and all the people attended thee from morning till night? 15 And Moses said to his father in law, Because the people come to me to have a determination from God. 16 For when a controversy happeneth among them and they come to me, I administer justice to every one, and teach them the statutes of God and his law. 17 Thereupon Moses' father in law said to him, Thou dost not transact this business right. 18 Both thou and this people with thee must needs be worn down by this intolerable service. This business is too fatiguing for thee. Thou canst not perform it thyself alone. 19 Now therefore hearken to me and I will advise thee; and God be with thee. Be thou to the people as the Oracle of God; and lay their cases before God; 20 and testify to them the statutes of God and his law; and point out to them the ways in which they shall walk, and the works which they shall do: 21 but look out for thyself from among all the people, for able, pious men, men of integrity who hate pride; and set these over them as rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, and rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens; 22 and let them administer justice to the people on all occasions: and the matter which is too high for them, they shall lay before thee; but causes easily determined they themselves shall decide. Thus they will remove a burden from thee and help thee. 23 If thou do this God will strengthen thee so that thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall go to their place with peace. 24 So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and did all that he said. 25 And when Moses had chosen able men from among all Israel and made them rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, and rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens, 26 with orders to administer justice to the people on all occasions, and that they should lay before him the matter which was too high for them; but the causes easily determined they themselves should decide; 27 then Moses gave his father in law leave to depart and he returned to his own land.
28 Which of you, intending to build a tower, doth not first sit down and calculate the cost, to know whether he hath sufficient to finish it?
11 in business be not slothful: Be fervent in spirit; constant in serving the Lord;
6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; and having seen its ways follow the example and be wiser than it. 7 For having no cultivated field, no driver, nor master, 8 it provideth its food in summer, and layeth up a plentiful supply in harvest. Or go to the bee and learn what a Worker she is: and how seriously she performeth her work, to the labours of which both kings and subjects apply themselves as far as health permits; and to all it is agreeable and honourable. And though her strength be small, having honoured wisdom she is diligently employed. 9 How long wilt thou sleep, sluggard, and when wilt thou rouse from sleep? 10 Thou art sleeping a little; but resting a little; but taking a short nap; but folding thy hands a little while on thy breast! 11 But is not poverty coming upon thee like an unwelcome traveller? And want like a speedy courier? Whereas if thou be diligent; thy harvest will come like a fountain, and want like a bad courier will run away.
2 And the Lord answered and said, [J] Write a vision: write it distinctly in a book that the reader may trace these things;
44 Be ye therefore ready prepared, because the son of man cometh at an hour you least expect. 45 Who is indeed the faithful and prudent servant, whom his lord hath set over his household to give them their food in due season. 46 Happy that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find thus employed. 47 Verily I say to you, he will set him over all his estate. 48 But if that servant being wicked should say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 and begin to beat his fellow tenants, and to eat and to drink with drunkards; 50 the lord of that servant will come on a day he least expecteth, and at an hour of which he is not aware 51 and will scourge him in the severest manner and assign him his portion with the hypocrites. Weeping and gnashing of teeth will be there.
58 So then, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, immoveable, abounding always in the work of the Lord, for as much as you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.
4 Every sluggard is employed in wishing: but the hands of the diligent, in procuring.
40 Let all things be done in a becoming and orderly manner.
