1Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee: 2and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3and I will them that bless thee, and curse him who curseth thee: and through thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
4So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. 5And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered , and all the servants whom they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
1The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the gently flowing streams.
3He reviveth my spirit:
He leadeth me in straight paths for his name’s sake.
4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou are with me;
Thy rod, and thy staff, they comfort me.
5Thou prepares a table for me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD to length of days.
1Ho! every one who thirsteth,
Come ye to the waters,
And he who hath no money: Come ye, buy, and eat;
Yea, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.
2Wherefore do ye spent money for that which is not bread?
And you labour for that which satisfieth not?
Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good,
And let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3Incline your ear, and come unto me:
Hear, and your soul shall live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
Even the sure mercies of David.
9And Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10And immediately on coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: 11and there came a voice from the heavens, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I delight.
12And immediately the spirit led him away into the wilderness. 13And he was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and angels ministered unto him.
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God: 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men: 5 and the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8
1Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the Gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye received, and wherein ye stand; 2by which also ye are saved, if ye hold fast what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed lightly. 3For I delivered unto you among the first things which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; 4and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures: 5and that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve: 6after that, he was seen by above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present time, but some have fallen asleep. 7After that, he was seen by James; then by all the apostles. 8And last of all he was seen by me also, as of one born out of due time.
