Genesis 12:1-5

1 NOW the LORD had said to A 'bram. Get you out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father's house, to a land that I will show you:
2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be nlessed.
4 So A'bram departed, as the LORD had spoken to him; and Lot went with him: and A 'bram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Ha'ran.
5 And A'bram took Sa 'rai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered., and the souls they had gotten in Ha ran; and they went forth to go into the land of Ca 'naan; and into the land of Ca 'naan they came.

Psalm 23

A Psalm of David

1 THE LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures: He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul: He leads 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 You are with me; Your rod and Your staff they comfort me,
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my emenies: You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
6 Surely goodiness and mercy shall follow me the days my life: and I will swell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Isaiah 55:1-3

1 HO, every one that thirsts, come youp to the waters, and he that has no money; come youp, buy, and eat: yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do you spend money for that which is not bread? and yourp labor for that which satisfies not? hearken diligently to Me, and eat youp that which is good, and let yourp soul delight itself in fatness.
3 Incline yourp ear, and come to Me: hear, and yourp soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with youp, even the sure mercies of Da' vid.

Mark 1:9-13

9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.
10 And immediately coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him:
11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
12 And immediately the Spirit drives Him into the wilderness.
13 And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with 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 The Same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to youp the gospel which I preached to youp , which also youp have received, and wherein youp stand;
2 By which also youp are saved, if youp keep in memory what I preached to your, unless your have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered to youp first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
5 And that He was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
6 After that, He was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain to this present, but some are fallen asleep.
7After that, He was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
8 And last of all He was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
