6 because for us a child is born, and to us a son is given, whose government is on his own shoulder; and his name is called, "The Messenger of Great Counsel." For I will bring peace on the rulers and health for him.

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.
1 When Jesus had finished these discourses he departed from Galilee and came to the borders of Judea, on the bank of the Jordan. 2 And great multitudes followed him, and he healed them there. 3 And the Pharisees came to him, and trying him said, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every fault? 4 In reply to which he said to them, "Have you not read that the Creator at the beginning made them a male and a female?" 5 Moreover he said, "For this cause a man is to leave his father and his mother, and cleave to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh; 6 so that they are no longer two but one flesh." Therefore what God hath conjoined, let not man separate. 7 They say to him, Why then did Moses command to give a bill of divorce and dismiss her? 8 He saith to them, Because of your intractable disposition Moses permitted you to put away your wives; but it was not so from the beginning. 9 Now I say to you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for whoredom and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and he who marrieth her who was put away committeth adultery. 10 His disciples say to him, If such be the case between the husband and wife, it is not expedient to marry. 11 Whereupon he said to them, All men cannot admit this inference. But with respect to them to whom it is granted 12 [for there are some who have been eunuchs from their birth, and some have been made eunuchs by men, and there are some who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven] let him admit it, who can admit it. 13 Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray for them; and his disciples rebuked them. 14 Whereupon Jesus said, Let the children alone, and do not hinder them to come to me; for of such is the kingdom of the heavens. 15 And when he had laid his hands on them he departed thence. 16 And behold there came one who said to him, Good teacher, what good thing shall I do, that I may have an everlasting life? 17 In reply to which Jesus said to him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but God only. But if thou desirest to enter into that life, keep the commandments. 18 He saith to him, Which? And Jesus said, These: Thou shalt not commit murder; Thou shalt not commit adultery; Thou shalt not steal; Thou shall not bear false witness; 19 Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 20 The youth said to him, All these I have kept from my childhood. What do I yet lack? 21 Jesus said to him, If thou wishest to be perfect, go, sell thy estate, and give to the poor; and thou shalt have treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me. 22 Upon hearing this word, the youth went away sorrowful; for he had great possessions. 23 Thereupon Jesus said to his disciples, Verily I say to you, With difficulty will a rich man enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I say to you, It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. 25 When his disciples heard this they were greatly astonished and said, Who then can be saved? 26 Thereupon Jesus looking earnestly at them said, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. 27 Then Peter addressing him said, Behold we have left all and followed thee, what then shall we have? 28 Thereupon Jesus said to him, Verily I say to you, With respect to you who have followed me, at the renovation, when the son of man shall sit on the throne of his glory, you also shall sit on twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or fields for the sake of my name, shall receive an hundred fold compensation. He shall indeed inherit an everlasting life. 30 But many will be first who are last; and last, who are first.
1 Therefore dropping the discourse of the government of the Christ, let us, without laying again a foundation of reformation from dead works, and of faith in God, 2 of the doctrine concerning baptism, and the laying on of hands, and the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment, proceed to the consecration. 3 And this we will do if God permit: 4 for with regard to them who have been once enlightened, and have tasted this free, this heavenly gift, and have been made partakers of a holy spirit, 5 and tasted the good word of God, and the miraculous powers of the age about to come, 6 and have fallen off; it is impossible to renew them again for a reformation, since they are crucifying for themselves afresh the son of God and exposing him to open shame. 7 For ground which drinketh up the rain that frequently falleth on it, and produceth plants fit for the use of them for whom it is cultivated, receiveth a blessing from God; 8 but that which produceth briars and thorns is rejected, and near a curse, the end of which is for burning. 9 But respecting you, beloved, we are persuaded better things, even things which accompany salvation; though we speak thus. 10 For God is not unjust to forget your work, and the labour of that love which you have shewn for his name, by the assistance which you have given and continue to give to the saints. 11 Now we earnestly desire that every one of you would shew the same diligent concern for the full assurance of this hope to the end: 12 that you may not become languid, but imitators of them who through faith and long suffering inherit the promises. 13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, as he had none greater to swear by, he swore by himself, 14 saying, "Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee." 15 And so he, having waited with patience, obtained the promise. 16 For men indeed swear by a greater, and an oath for confirmation being to them an end of strife, 17 God, willing on this occasion to shew more fully to the heirs of this promise the immutability of his determination, interposed an oath, 18 that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to deceive, there might be strong consolation for us who have fled to take hold of this proffered hope, 19 which we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast; and which entereth within the veil, 20 whither a forerunner hath entered for us, namely Jesus, made a chief priest forever, after the order of Melchisedek.
1 Thus were finished the heaven and the earth and all the arrangement of them. 2 And God finished on the sixth day these his works which he made; and on the seventh day he desisted from all these works of his which he made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it; because on it he rested from all these works of his which God had taken occasion to make. 4 This is the genealogy of heaven and earth. When they were made, on the day when the Lord God had made the heaven and the earth, 5 and all the verdure of the field, before it was on the earth, and every herb of the field, before it sprang up, [for God had not rained on the earth, nor was there a man to till it; 6 but a fountain ascended out of the earth and watered the whole face of the ground,] 7 then God formed the man, dust from the earth, and breathed upon his face a breath of life, and the man became a living soul. 8 And God planted a garden in Eden towards the east and placed there the man whom he had made. 9 And God caused to spring up there also out of that ground every tree beautiful to the sight and good for food, and the tree of life in the middle of the garden, and the tree for the purpose of knowing what was to be known of good and evil. 10 Now a river issueth out of Eden to water the garden: thence it is divided into four heads. 11 The name of the first is Physon. This is that which encircleth the whole country Evilat, where there is gold, 12 and the gold of that country is good. There also is the carbuncle and the Prasian stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Geon. This is that which encircleth the whole country of Ethiopia. 14 And the third river is Tigris. This is that which floweth down over against the Assyrians. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And the Lord God took the man whom he had made, and placed him in this garden of pleasure to work it and to watch. 16 And the Lord God gave a charge to Adam, saying, "Of every tree which is in the garden for food, thou mightest have eaten; 17 but from this tree, that you may know good and evil, you must not eat of it. On the day you eat of it, by death you shall die." 18 Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone: let us make for him a helper correspondent to himself." 19 Now God had also formed out of the earth all the beasts of the field, and all the birds of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called every living creature; that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all the cattle, and to all the fowls of the air, and to all the wild beasts of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper like himself. 21 Then God brought an ecstasy upon Adam and caused him to sleep, and took one of his ribs and filled up flesh instead thereof. 22 And God built up the rib, which he took from Adam, into a woman, and brought her to Adam. 23 And Adam said, "This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh, let her be called woman." Because she was taken out of her man, 24 therefore a man is to leave his father and his mother and cleave to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
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.
3 And God said, "Let there be Light;" and there was light.
5 Thus saith the Lord, the God who made the heaven and fixed it; who established the earth and the things therein and who giveth vital air to the people on it, and breath to them who tread thereon;
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.
1 In the beginning was the Word; and the Word was with God; and the Word was God.
13 My hand hath founded the earth, and my right hand hath established the heaven. Let me summon them and let them stand together.
1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth.
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.
