12:1 Now Yahweh said to Abram, Get out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father's house, to the land that I will show you:
12:2 and I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you will be a blessing;
12:3 and I will bless those who bless you, and him who curses you I will curse: and in you will all the families of the earth be blessed.
12:4 So Abram went, as Yahweh had spoken to him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
12:5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls who they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
23:1 A Psalm of David. Yahweh is my shepherd; I will not want.
23:2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters.
23:3 He restores my soul: He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
23:4 Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for you are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: You have anointed my head with oil; My cup runs over.
23:6 Surely goodness and loving-kindness will follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of Yahweh forever.
55:1 Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters, and he who has no silver; come, buy, and eat; yes, come, buy wine and milk without silver and without price.
55:2 Why do you spend silver for that which is not bread? And your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
55:3 Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, and your soul will live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
1:9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan.
1:10 And immediately coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens rent apart, and the Spirit as a dove descending on him:
1:11 and a voice came out of the heavens, You are my beloved Son, in you I am well pleased.
1:12 And right away the Spirit drives him forth into the wilderness.
1:13 And he was in the wilderness forty days tried by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels were serving him.
1:1 In the beginning was the Speech, and the Speech was with God, and the Speech was God.
1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
1:3 All things came into existence through him; and without him nothing came into existence. That which has come to exist
1:4 in him was life; and the life was the light of men.
1:5 And the light shines in the darkness; and the darkness did not apprehend it.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8
15:1 Now I make known to you brothers, the good news which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand,
15:2 by which also you are saved. For what reason did I preach the good news to you? Unless you hold fast [to it], you believed for nothing.
15:3 For I delivered to you first of all that which also I received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures;
15:4 and that he was buried; and that he has been raised on the third day according to the Scriptures;
15:5 and that he appeared to Cephas; then to the twelve;
15:6 then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at once, of whom the greater part stay until now, but some have fallen asleep;
15:7 then he appeared to James; then to all the apostles;
15:8 and last of all, as to the [child] untimely born, he appeared to me also.
