12:1 Then the Lord said to Abram: “Depart from your land, and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, and come into the land that I will show you.
12:2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and magnify your name, and you will be blessed.
12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you, and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
12:4 And so Abram departed just as the Lord had instructed him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.
12:5 And he took his wife Sarai, and Lot, the son of his brother, and all the substance which they had come to possess, and the lives which they had acquired in Haran, and they departed in order to go to the land of Canaan. And when they arrived in it,
[Psalm 22] (23)
22:1 A Psalm of David. The Lord directs me, and nothing will be lacking to me.
22:2 He has settled me here, in a place of pasture. He has led me out to the water of refreshment.
22:3 He has converted my soul. He has led me away on the paths of justice, for the sake of his name.
22:4 For, even if I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils. For you are with me. Your rod and your staff, they have given me consolation.
22:5 You have prepared a table in my sight, opposite those who trouble me. You have anointed my head with oil, and my cup, which inebriates me, how brilliant it is!
22:6 And your mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and so may I dwell in the house of the Lord for length of days.
55:1 All you who thirst, come to the waters. And you who have no money: hurry, buy and eat. Approach, buy wine and milk, without money and without barter.
55:2 Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and expend your labor for what does not satisfy? Listen very closely to me, and eat what is good, and then your soul will be delighted by a full measure.
55:3 Incline your ear and draw near to me. Listen, and your soul will live. And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, by the faithful mercies of David.
1:9 And it happened that, in those days, Jesus arrived from Nazareth of Galilee. And he was baptized by John in the Jordan.
1:10 And immediately, upon ascending from the water, he saw the heavens opened and the Spirit, like a dove, descending, and remaining with him.
1:11 And there was a voice from heaven: “You are my beloved Son; in you I am well pleased.”
1:12 And immediately the Spirit prompted him into the desert.
1:13 And he was in the desert for forty days and forty nights. And he was tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the Angels ministered to him.
1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word.
1:2 He was with God in the beginning.
1:3 All things were made through Him, and nothing that was made was made without Him.
1:4 Life was in Him, and Life was the light of men.
1:5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8
15:1 And so I make known to you, brothers, the Gospel that I preached to you, which you also received, and on which you stand.
15:2 By the Gospel, too, you are being saved, if you hold to the understanding that I preached to you, lest you believe in vain.
15:3 For I handed on to you, first of all, what I also received: that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures;
15:4 and that he was buried; and that he rose again on the third day, according to the Scriptures;
15:5 and that he was seen by Cephas, and after that by the eleven.
15:6 Next he was seen by more than five hundred brothers at one time, many of whom remain, even to the present time, although some have fallen asleep.
15:7 Next, he was seen by James, then by all the Apostles.
15:8 And last of all, he was seen also by me, as if I were someone born at the wrong time.
