Genesis 12:1-5

1 Now Jehovah had said unto Abram, Depart from thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, to a land that I will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
4 So Abram departed, as Jehovah had spoken to him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brothers son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the persons that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

Psalm 23

1 Jehovah is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy crook and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and kindness shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of Jehovah Lord for ever.

Isaiah 55:1-3

1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently to me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your appetite delight itself in dainties.
3 Incline your ear, and come to me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

Mark 1:9-13

9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was immersed by John in the Jordan.
10And immediately coming up from the water, he saw the heavens parted, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:
11And a voice came from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
12And immediately the spirit urgeth him into the desert.
13And he was there in the desert forty days, tempted by Satan; and was among the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to him.

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 This was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by it; and without it nothing was made that was made.
4 In it was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shone in the darkness; and the darkness did not admit it.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

1 And I remind you, brethren, of the gospel which I preached to you, which ye also received, and in which ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye hold fast what I preached to you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered to you first of all, what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he arose on the third day according to the scriptures:
5 And that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve:
6 Afterward he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the most remain until now, but some are fallen asleep.
7 Then he was seen by James; then by all the apostles.
8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as it were one untimely born.
