1And Jehovah said to Abram "Betake yourself from your country, your home, and your family, to the country I will show you, 2and I will make you a great nation and bless you and make your name famous, and it shall be a blessing; 3and I will bless those who bless you, and whoever misspeaks you I will curse; and all the clans of the world shall bless by you." 4And Abram went, as Jehovah had told him, and Lot went with him; and Abram was seventy-five years old when he went out of Harran. 5And Abram took his wife Sarai and his nephew Lot, and all their chattels that they had accumulated and the persons that they had acquired in Harran, and they went out to go to Canaan.
1Jehovah is my shepherd;
I shall never have less than I need.
2He has me lie down in green pastures;
he takes me to resting-places along the water
3He puts life back in me;
he leads me on trails that go right, for the sake of his name.
4Even when I go in a valley of gloom
I will not be afraid of anything bad, because you are with me;
Your club and staff,
they set my mind at rest.
5You lay a table before me
in my foemen's presence;
You have lavished oil on my head,
my cup is full of refreshment.
6I shall have nothing but kindness and friendliness following me all my life,
and I shall stay at Jehovah's house for long years.
1Ho, every thirsty man, come to the water, an you who have no money, come buy provisions and eat; come buy them for no money, wine and milk for no pay; 2why should you spend money for no bread and your earnings for no satisfaction? Listen to me and eat good things, and let your cravings be delighted with fat things; 3turn your ears and come to me, listen that your souls may live and I may make with you an eternal covenant, the faithful friendship I pledged to David.
9And in those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized in the Jordan by John. 10And at once, as he came up out of the water, he saw the sky cleave apart and the Spirit come down on him like a dove; 11and there was a voice out of the sky, "You are my dear son, in you I take pleasure." 12And at once the Spirit drove him out to the wilderness; 13and he was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on his needs.
1At the first there was the Word, and the Word was where God was, and the Word was God.
2He was at the first where God was. 3Everything was made by his agency, and not a thing that was made was made without his agency.
4In him there was life, and the life was the light of men; 5and the light is shining in the darkness, and the darkness has not taken it in.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8
1But, brothers, let me make you acquainted with the gospel I preachedto you, the same that you received, the same that you stand on, 2the same that you are saved by, in what terms I preached it to you, if you are holding to it -except in case you believed for nothing! 3For I handed onto you as a foremost thing the same thing I received, that Christ died for our sins in accordance with scripture, 4and that he was buried, and that he rose the third day in accordance with scripture, 5and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the Twelve; 6then he appeared to above five hundred brothers at a time, of whom the majority are with us until now, but some have gone to their rest; 7then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles; 8and last of all, as it were to the runt born by abortion, he appeared to me too.
