Genesis 12:1-5

1And the Lord had said unto Abram: Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, to the 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 bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all 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 the souls 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

1The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures,
He leadeth me beside still waters.
3He restoreth my soul,
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness,
for his name's sake.
4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for thou art with me,
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
5Thou preparest a table before 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 for ever.

Isaiah 55:1-3

1Ho, 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.
2Wherefore do ye spend money for what is not bread,
And your labour for what satisfieth not?
Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye 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,
The sure mercies of David.

Mark 1:9-13

9And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10And straightway coming up from the water, he saw the heavens opening 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 am well pleased.
12And immediately the Spirit sendeth him forth into the wilderness. 13And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

John 1:1-5

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 through him; and without him was not any thing made that hath been made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in the 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 have received, and wherein ye stand: 2by which also ye are being saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye believed in vain.
3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, 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 appeared to Cephas, then of the twelve. 6After that, he appeared to above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. 7After that, he appeared to James; then to all the apostles. 8And last of all he appeared to me also, as one born out of due time.
