1And JEHOVAH said unto Abram: Depart thou from thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto the land which I will show thee: 2for I will make of thee a mighty nation, and I will bless thee, and magnify thy name; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3and I will bless them who bless thee, and curse him who curseth thee; and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
4The Abram departed, according as JEHOVAH had commanded him; and Lot went with him. Now Abram was seventy-five years old when he proceeded forth from Haran.
5And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance which they had acquired, and the people whom he had obtained in Haran; and he proceeded forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
1JEHOVAH is my shepherd, I cannot want:
2He maketh me to repose in verdant pastures;
Beside the tranquil waters He will gently guide me.
3He will restore my soul;
He will lead me in the pathway of righteousness, for His Name's sake.
4Yea, although I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I shall fear no harm, because Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy pastoral staff, they will console me.
5Thou shalt furnish a table before me
In the presence of mine enemies.
Thou Hast anointed my head with oil.
Ah! my cup overfloweth.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
Every of the days of my life.
And I shall dwell in JEHOVAH'S house eternally.
1Ho! every one who thirsteth, come ye to the waters;
And ye who have no silver,
Come ye, buy and eat;
Yea, come ye, buy without silver,
And without barter, wine and milk.
2Wherefore weight ye out silver for that which is not bread?
Wherefore weary yourselves in labour for that which satisfies not?
Hearing attend ye unto ME, and eat ye that which is truly good,
And let your soul feast itself upon the richest delicacies.
3Incline your ear, and come unto Me;
Attend, and your soul shall live;
And I will make with you an everlasting covenant;
The overflowing mercies of David, which shall never fail.
