1And Yahweh said unto Abram:
Come thou on thy way,
Out of thy land and out of the place of thy birth, and out of the house of thy father; —
Unto the land that I will show thee;
2That I may make thee into a great nation,
and bless thee and make great thy name,
and become thou a blessing;
3That I may bless them who bless thee,
But him who maketh light of thee will I curse, —
So shall be blessed in thee, all the families of the ground.
4And Abram came on his way, according to that which Yahweh had spoken unto him, and Lot came with him, — now Abram was seventy-five years old, when he came forth out of Haran. 5And Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother's son, with all the goods that they had gathered and the souls that they had gained in Haran, — and they came forth to go towards the land of Canaan and came in to the land of Canaan.
1Yahweh is my shepherd — I shall not want;
2In pastures of tender grass, he maketh me lie down,
Unto restful waters, he leadeth me;
3My life, he restoreth,
He guideth me in right paths, for the sake of his Name.
4Yea, though I walk through a valley death-shadowed
I will fear no harm, for thou art with me,
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5Thou spreadest before me a table, in face of mine adversaries,
Thou hast anointed with oil, my head,
My cup hath run over.
6Surely goodness and lovingkindness will pursue me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of Yahweh, evermore.
1Ho! every one that thirsteth!
Come ye to the waters,
Yea he that hath no money, —
Come ye — buy corn and eat,
Yea come — buy corn without money,
and without price, wine and milk.
2Wherefore should ye spend
Money for that which in not bread?
Or your labour for that which satisfieth not?
Keep on hearkening unto me,
And so eat that which is good,
And let you soul take exquisite delight in fatness:
3Incline your ear and come unto me,
Hearken, That your soul may live,
That I may solemnise for you a covenant age-abiding,
The Lovingkindness to David well-assurred.
9And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was immersed into the Jordan by John; 10And straighway as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens rending asunder, and the Spirit as a dove descending unto him; 11And a voice came of of the heavens —
Thou art My Son, the Beloved,
In thee I delight.
12And straightway the Spirit urgeth him forth into the wilderness; 13and he was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts, — and the messengers were ministering unto Him.
1Originally was the Word,
And the Word was with God;
And the Word was God.
2The same was originally with God.
3All things through him came into existence,
And without him came into existence not even one thing:
That which hath come into existence 4In him was life,
And the life was the light of men.
5And the light in the darkness shineth,
And the darkness thereof laid not hold.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8
1Moreover brethren, I make known unto you The joyful message —
Which I myself announced to you
Which also ye received,
In which also ye stand;
2Through which also ye are being saved, —
If ye hold fast
With what discourse I announced the joyful message unto you; —
Unless indeed in vain ye believed.
3For I delivered unto you among the first things
What also I received:
How that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
4And that he was buried,
And that he hath been raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures, —
5And that He appeard unto Cephas
Then to the twelve,
6After that, He appeared to above five hundred brethren at once,
Of whom the greater number remain until even now,
But some have fallen asleep,
7After that, he appeared unto James,
Then unto all the apostles,
8And last of all,
Just as if unto the unseasonable birth,
He appeared even unto me;
