1 Now Jehovah said to Abram: Depart from your land, from your kindred and from your father's house, to a land that I will show you.
2 I will make of you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who despises you; and in you all families of the earth shall be blessed.
4 So Abram departed as Jehovah had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.
5 And Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had collected, and the souls they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go into the land of Canaan. So they came into the land of Canaan.
A Psalm of David
1 Jehovah is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me to waters of rest.
3 He restores my soul; He leads me in paths of righteousness because of His great name.
4 Yea, 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.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of Jehovah forever.
9 And it came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was immersed by John in the Jordan.
10 And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove.
11 And a voice came from Heaven, You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
12 And immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.
13 And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to 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 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not lay hold of it.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand,
2 by which also you are being kept safe, if you hold fast that Word which I preached to you; unless you believe in vain.
3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised the third day according to the Scriptures,
5 and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.
7 After that He was seen by Jacob, then by each of the apostles.
8 Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one of untimely birth.
