1Now Jehovah had said to Abram, 'Get thee out of thy country, and from thy birthplace, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew 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 bless themselves.' 4So Abram departed, as Jehovah had spoken to him; and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran [A.M. 2023]. 5And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls [or slaves] that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to the land of Canaan.
11 Jehovah is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me to refreshing waters.
3He restoreth my soul; he guideth me
In the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4Yea, when I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I shall fear no evil, for thou wilt be with me;
Thy rod and thy staff they will comfort me.
5Thou settest a table for me in sight of mine oppressors;
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6Yea, goodness and mercy follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of Jehovah for a length of days.
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 that which is not bread? and your 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 kindness assured unto David [2 Sam. vii. 15].
9And it came to pass in those days [September, A.D. 27], that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the spirit like a dove descending on him. 11And there came a voice from heaven, saying; 'Thou art my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased.'
12And straightway the spirit sendeth him forth into the desert. 13And he was in the desert forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts ; and the angels ministered imto him.
New Testament - 1874
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was with God in the [first] beginning. 3All things were made through it, and without it was not any one thing made whatever. What was made 4by means of it was life, and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness perceived it not.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8
1And I wish you to know, brethren, as to the Good Tidings which I preached to you, and which ye received, and in which ye stand, 2and by which ye are being saved, by what reasoning I preached to you, if ye hold it; otherwise ye believed in vain. 3For I delivered to you among the first things what I also received, how Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures ; 4and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day, according to the scriptures; 5and that he was seen by Cephas, and then by the twelve. 6Then he was seen by above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain until now, but some are gone to rest. 7Then he was seen by James ; then by all the apostles. 8And last of all he was seen by me also, as by the one born out of due time.
