01:001:001 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
01:001:002 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
01:001:003 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
01:001:004 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the
light from the darkness.
01:001:005 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called
Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
01:001:006 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the
waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
01:001:007 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
01:001:008 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
01:001:009 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
01:001:010 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
01:001:011 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb
yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his
kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
01:001:012 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed
after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in
itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
01:001:013 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
01:001:014 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
01:001:015 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
01:001:016 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
01:001:017 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light
upon the earth,
01:001:018 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the
light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
01:001:019 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
01:001:020 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
01:001:021 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
01:001:022 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
01:001:023 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
01:001:024 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature
after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the
earth after his kind: and it was so.
01:001:025 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle
after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth
after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
01:001:026 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
01:001:027 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
01:001:028 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and
multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the
air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
01:001:029 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing
seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree,
in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it
shall be for meat.
01:001:030 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air,
and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there
is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was
01:001:031 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was
very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
01:002:001 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host
01:002:002 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he
01:002:003 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because
that in it he had rested from all his work which God created
01:002:004 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when
they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth
and the heavens,
01:002:005 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
01:002:006 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
01:002:007 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
01:002:008 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
01:002:009 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
01:002:010 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from
thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
01:002:011 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth
the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
01:002:012 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the
01:002:013 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that
compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
01:002:014 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
01:002:015 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of
Eden to dress it and to keep it.
01:002:016 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of
the garden thou mayest freely eat:
01:002:017 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
01:002:018 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
01:002:019 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
01:002:020 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air,
and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not
found an help meet for him.
01:002:021 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he
slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh
01:002:022 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
01:002:023 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
01:002:024 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and
shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
01:002:025 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not
01:003:001 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
01:003:002 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
01:003:003 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
01:003:004 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
01:003:005 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
01:003:006 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
01:003:007 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
01:003:008 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
01:003:009 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where
01:003:010 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was
afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
01:003:011 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
01:003:012 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
01:003:013 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
01:003:014 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
01:003:015 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
01:003:016 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
01:003:017 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
01:003:018 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
01:003:019 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
01:003:020 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the
mother of all living.
01:003:021 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of
skins, and clothed them.
01:003:022 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
01:003:023 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
01:003:024 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
01:004:001 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain,
and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
01:004:002 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of
sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
01:004:003 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of
the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
01:004:004 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
01:004:005 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain
was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
01:004:006 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is
thy countenance fallen?
01:004:007 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou
doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be
his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
01:004:008 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass,
when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel
his brother, and slew him.
01:004:009 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he
said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
01:004:010 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's
blood crieth unto me from the ground.
01:004:011 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her
mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;
01:004:012 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
01:004:013 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
01:004:014 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
01:004:015 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
01:004:016 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
01:004:017 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
01:004:018 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and
Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
01:004:019 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was
Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
01:004:020 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in
tents, and of such as have cattle.
01:004:021 And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all
such as handle the harp and organ.
01:004:022 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructor of every
artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was
01:004:023 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my
voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have
slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.
01:004:024 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
01:004:025 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called
his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another
seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
01:004:026 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called
his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the
01:005:001 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that
God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
01:005:002 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called
their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
01:005:003 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:
01:005:004 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight
hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:
01:005:005 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty
years: and he died.
01:005:006 And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:
01:005:007 And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven
years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:008 And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years:
and he died.
01:005:009 And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:
01:005:010 And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen
years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:011 And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and
01:005:012 And Cainan lived seventy years and begat Mahalaleel:
01:005:013 And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and
forty years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:014 And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years:
and he died.
01:005:015 And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:
01:005:016 And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and
thirty years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:017 And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and
five years: and he died.
01:005:018 And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat
01:005:019 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and
begat sons and daughters:
01:005:020 And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two
years: and he died.
01:005:021 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:
01:005:022 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three
hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:023 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five
01:005:024 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
01:005:025 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and
01:005:026 And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred
eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:027 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and
nine years: and he died.
01:005:028 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a
01:005:029 And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.
01:005:030 And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and
five years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:031 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and
seven years: and he died.
01:005:032 And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham,
01:006:001 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of
the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
01:006:002 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were
fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
01:006:003 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
01:006:004 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
01:006:005 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
01:006:006 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
01:006:007 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
01:006:008 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
01:006:009 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
01:006:010 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
01:006:011 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was
filled with violence.
01:006:012 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt;
for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
01:006:013 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
01:006:014 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.
01:006:015 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
01:006:016 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou
finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the
side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou
01:006:017 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the
earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life,
from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall
01:006:018 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt
come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy
sons' wives with thee.
01:006:019 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort
shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee;
they shall be male and female.
01:006:020 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of
every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every
sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.
01:006:021 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou
shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee,
and for them.
01:006:022 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
01:007:001 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into
the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this
01:007:002 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the
male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two,
the male and his female.
01:007:003 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
01:007:004 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
01:007:005 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.
01:007:006 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
01:007:007 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
01:007:008 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of
fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
01:007:009 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and
the female, as God had commanded Noah.
01:007:010 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the
flood were upon the earth.
01:007:011 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
01:007:012 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
01:007:013 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;
01:007:014 They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.
01:007:015 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all
flesh, wherein is the breath of life.
01:007:016 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh,
as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.
01:007:017 And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.
01:007:018 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
01:007:019 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
01:007:020 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.
01:007:021 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:
01:007:022 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.
01:007:023 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.
01:007:024 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
01:008:001 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged;
01:008:002 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;
01:008:003 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
01:008:004 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
01:008:005 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
01:008:006 And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened
the window of the ark which he had made:
01:008:007 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until
the waters were dried up from off the earth.
01:008:008 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were
abated from off the face of the ground;
01:008:009 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.
01:008:010 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;
01:008:011 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
01:008:012 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.
01:008:013 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
01:008:014 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.
01:008:015 And God spake unto Noah, saying,
01:008:016 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee.
01:008:017 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
01:008:018 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:
01:008:019 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and
whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went
forth out of the ark.
01:008:020 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every
clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt
offerings on the altar.
01:008:021 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
01:008:022 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
01:009:001 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
01:009:002 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
01:009:003 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as
the green herb have I given you all things.
01:009:004 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof,
shall ye not eat.
01:009:005 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.
01:009:006 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed:
for in the image of God made he man.
01:009:007 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly
in the earth, and multiply therein.
01:009:008 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
01:009:009 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;
01:009:010 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl,
of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from
all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
01:009:011 And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all
flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither
shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
01:009:012 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make
between me and you and every living creature that is with you,
for perpetual generations:
01:009:013 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a
covenant between me and the earth.
01:009:014 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the
earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
01:009:015 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you
and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall
no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
01:009:016 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it,
that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and
every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
01:009:017 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant,
which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon
01:009:018 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem,
and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
01:009:019 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole
01:009:020 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
01:009:021 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was
uncovered within his tent.
01:009:022 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his
father, and told his two brethren without.
01:009:023 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
01:009:024 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son
had done unto him.
01:009:025 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he
be unto his brethren.
01:009:026 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall
be his servant.
01:009:027 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of
Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
01:009:028 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
01:009:029 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years:
and he died.
01:010:001 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham,
and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
01:010:002 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan,
and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
01:010:003 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
01:010:004 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
01:010:005 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
01:010:006 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.
01:010:007 And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.
01:010:008 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the
01:010:009 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said,
Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.
01:010:010 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and
Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
01:010:011 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and
the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
01:010:012 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.
01:010:013 And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and
01:010:014 And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and
01:010:015 And Canaan begat Sidon his first born, and Heth,
01:010:016 And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,
01:010:017 And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,
01:010:018 And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.
01:010:019 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest, unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.
01:010:020 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their
tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.
01:010:021 Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the
brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.
01:010:022 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud,
01:010:023 And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
01:010:024 And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
01:010:025 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.
01:010:026 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,
01:010:027 And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,
01:010:028 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,
01:010:029 And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of
01:010:030 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a
mount of the east.
01:010:031 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their
tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
01:010:032 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
01:011:001 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
01:011:002 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that
they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt
01:011:003 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and
burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime
had they for morter.
01:011:004 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower,
whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name,
lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
01:011:005 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
01:011:006 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
01:011:007 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that
they may not understand one another's speech.
01:011:008 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of
all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
01:011:009 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
01:011:010 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years
old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:
01:011:011 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and
begat sons and daughters.
01:011:012 And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:
01:011:013 And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.
01:011:014 And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:
01:011:015 And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.
01:011:016 And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:
01:011:017 And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.
01:011:018 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:
01:011:019 And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters.
01:011:020 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:
01:011:021 And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters.
01:011:022 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:
01:011:023 And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.
01:011:024 And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:
01:011:025 And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen
years, and begat sons and daughters.
01:011:026 And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and
01:011:027 Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram,
Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.
01:011:028 And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his
nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.
01:011:029 And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.
01:011:030 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
01:011:031 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.
01:011:032 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.
01:012:001 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
01:012:002 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
01:012:003 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that
curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be
01:012:004 So 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.
01:012:005 And 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.
01:012:006 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem,
unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the
01:012:007 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will
I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD,
who appeared unto him.
01:012:008 And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of
Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and
Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD,
and called upon the name of the LORD.
01:012:009 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.
01:012:010 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into
Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the
01:012:011 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into
Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know
that thou art a fair woman to look upon:
01:012:012 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see
thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will
kill me, but they will save thee alive.
01:012:013 Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with
me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.
01:012:014 And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the
Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.
01:012:015 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before
Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.
01:012:016 And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.
01:012:017 And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.
01:012:018 And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that thou hast
done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy
01:012:019 Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her
to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go
01:012:020 And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent
him away, and his wife, and all that he had.
01:013:001 And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that
he had, and Lot with him, into the south.
01:013:002 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
01:013:003 And he went on his journeys from the south even to Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai;
01:013:004 Unto the place of the altar, which he had make there at the
first: and there Abram called on the name of the LORD.
01:013:005 And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds,
01:013:006 And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell
together: for their substance was great, so that they could
not dwell together.
01:013:007 And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle
and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the
Perizzite dwelled then in the land.
01:013:008 And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee,
between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen;
for we be brethren.
01:013:009 Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray
thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go
to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will
go to the left.
01:013:010 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of
Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD
destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD,
like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.
01:013:011 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed
east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.
01:013:012 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the
cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
01:013:013 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD
01:013:014 And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
01:013:015 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
01:013:016 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.
01:013:017 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.
01:013:018 Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain
of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto
01:014:001 And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar,
Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal
king of nations;
01:014:002 That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha
king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of
Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar.
01:014:003 All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is
the salt sea.
01:014:004 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth
year they rebelled.
01:014:005 And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emins in Shaveh Kiriathaim,
01:014:006 And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto Elparan, which is by the wilderness.
01:014:007 And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar.
01:014:008 And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim;
01:014:009 With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of
nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of
Ellasar; four kings with five.
01:014:010 And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of
Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that
remained fled to the mountain.
01:014:011 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all
their victuals, and went their way.
01:014:012 And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom,
and his goods, and departed.
01:014:013 And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.
01:014:014 And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he
armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three
hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan.
01:014:015 And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by
night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is
on the left hand of Damascus.
01:014:016 And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his
brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the
01:014:017 And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return
from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were
with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale.
01:014:018 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine:
and he was the priest of the most high God.
01:014:019 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most
high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
01:014:020 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine
enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
01:014:021 And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons,
and take the goods to thyself.
01:014:022 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand
unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and
01:014:023 That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and
that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou
shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
01:014:024 Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion
of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let
them take their portion.
01:015:001 After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a
vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy
exceeding great reward.
01:015:002 And Abram said, LORD God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go
childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of
01:015:003 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.
01:015:004 And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This
shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of
thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
01:015:005 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward
heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them:
and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
01:015:006 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for
01:015:007 And he said unto him, I am the LORD that brought thee out of
Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.
01:015:008 And he said, LORD God, whereby shall I know that I shall
01:015:009 And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old,
and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years
old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.
01:015:010 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst,
and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided
01:015:011 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove
01:015:012 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram;
and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
01:015:013 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not their's, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
01:015:014 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and
afterward shall they come out with great substance.
01:015:015 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be
buried in a good old age.
01:015:016 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for
the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
01:015:017 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was
dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed
between those pieces.
01:015:018 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying,
Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt
unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
01:015:019 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
01:015:020 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
01:015:021 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and
01:016:001 Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an
handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.
01:016:002 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
01:016:003 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.
01:016:004 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.
01:016:005 And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the LORD judge between me and thee.
01:016:006 But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thine hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face.
01:016:007 And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.
01:016:008 And he said, Hagar, Sarai's maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.
01:016:009 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Return to thy
mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.
01:016:010 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy
seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
01:016:011 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with
child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael;
because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.
01:016:012 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man,
and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the
presence of all his brethren.
01:016:013 And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou
God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him
that seeth me?
01:016:014 Wherefore the well was called Beerlahairoi; behold, it is
between Kadesh and Bered.
01:016:015 And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son's name,
which Hagar bare, Ishmael.
01:016:016 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare
Ishmael to Abram.
01:017:001 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
01:017:002 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
01:017:003 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,
01:017:004 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
01:017:005 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
01:017:006 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
01:017:007 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy
seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting
covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
01:017:008 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the
land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for
an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
01:017:009 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.
01:017:010 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.
01:017:011 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.
01:017:012 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
01:017:013 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy
money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in
your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
01:017:014 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is
not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people;
