blather [1] In the beginning God
created the heaven and the
earth.
[2] 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.
[3] And God said, Let there be
light: and there was light.
[4] And God saw the light, that
it was good: and God divided
the light from the darkness.
[5] And God called the light
Day, and the darkness he called
Night. And the evening and the
morning were the first day.
[6] And God said, Let there be a
firmament in the midst of the
waters, and let it divide the
waters from the waters.
[7] 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.
[8] And God called the
firmament Heaven. And the
evening and the morning were
the second day.
[9] 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.
[10] And God called the dry
land Earth; and the gathering
together of the waters called he
Seas: and God saw that it was
good.
[11] 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.
[12] 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.
[13] And the evening and the
morning were the third day.
[14] 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:
[15] And let them be for lights
in the firmament of the heaven
to give light upon the earth:
and it was so.
[16] 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.
[17] And God set them in the
firmament of the heaven to give
light upon the earth,
[18] 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.
[19] And the evening and the
morning were the fourth day.
[20] 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.
[21] 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.
[22] And God blessed them,
saying, Be fruitful, and
multiply, and fill the waters in
the seas, and let fowl multiply
in the earth.
[23] And the evening and the
morning were the fifth day.
[24] 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.
[25] 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.
[26] 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.
[27] So God created man in his
own image, in the image of God
created he him; male and
female created he them.
[28] 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.
[29] 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.
[30] 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 so.
[31] 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.


Gen.2

[1] Thus the heavens and the
earth were finished, and all the
host of them.
[2] 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 had made.
[3] And God blessed the
seventh day, and sanctified it:
because that in it he had rested
from all his work which God
created and made.
[4] 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,
[5] 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.
[6] But there went up a mist
from the earth, and watered
the whole face of the ground.
[7] 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.
[8] And the LORD God planted
a garden eastward in Eden; and
there he put the man whom he
had formed.
[9] 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.
[10] And a river went out of
Eden to water the garden; and
from thence it was parted, and
became into four heads.
[11] The name of the first is
Pison: that is it which
compasseth the whole land of
Havilah, where there is gold;
[12] And the gold of that land
is good: there is bdellium and
the onyx stone.
[13] And the name of the
second river is Gihon: the same
is it that compasseth the whole
land of Ethiopia.
[14] 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.
[15] And the LORD God took
the man, and put him into the
garden of Eden to dress it and
to keep it.
[16] And the LORD God
commanded the man, saying,
Of every tree of the garden thou
mayest freely eat:
[17] 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.
[18] And the LORD God said,
It is not good that the man
should be alone; I will make
him an help meet for him.
[19] 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.
[20] 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.
[21] 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
instead thereof;
[22] And the rib, which the
LORD God had taken from
man, made he a woman, and
brought her unto the man.
[23] 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.
[24] Therefore shall a man
leave his father and his mother,
and shall cleave unto his wife:
and they shall be one flesh.
[25] And they were both naked,
the man and his wife, and were
not ashamed.


Gen.3

[1] 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?
[2] And the woman said unto
the serpent, We may eat of the
fruit of the trees of the garden:
[3] 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.
[4] And the serpent said unto
the woman, Ye shall not surely
die:
[5] 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.
[6] 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.
[7] 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.
[8] 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.
[9] And the LORD God called
unto Adam, and said unto him,
Where art thou?
[10] And he said, I heard thy
voice in the garden, and I was
afraid, because I was naked;
and I hid myself.
[11] 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?
[12] And the man said, The
woman whom thou gavest to be
with me, she gave me of the
tree, and I did eat.
[13] 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.
[14] 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:
[15] 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.
[16] 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.
[17] 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;
[18] Thorns also and thistles
shall it bring forth to thee; and
thou shalt eat the herb of the
field;
[19] 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.
[20] And Adam called his wife's
name Eve; because she was the
mother of all living.
[21] Unto Adam also and to his
wife did the LORD God make
coats of skins, and clothed
them.
[22] 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:
[23] Therefore the LORD God
sent him forth from the garden
of Eden, to till the ground from
whence he was taken.
[24] 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.


Gen.4

[1] And Adam knew Eve his
wife; and she conceived, and
bare Cain, and said, I have
gotten a man from the LORD.
[2] And she again bare his
brother Abel. And Abel was a
keeper of sheep, but Cain was a
tiller of the ground.
[3] And in process of time it
came to pass, that Cain brought
of the fruit of the ground an
offering unto the LORD.
[4] 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:
[5] But unto Cain and to his
offering he had not respect. And
Cain was very wroth, and his
countenance fell.
[6] And the LORD said unto
Cain, Why art thou wroth? and
why is thy countenance fallen?
[7] 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.
[8] 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.
[9] And the LORD said unto
Cain, Where is Abel thy
brother? And he said, I know
not: Am I my brother's keeper?
[10] And he said, What hast
thou done? the voice of thy
brother's blood crieth unto me
from the ground.
[11] And now art thou cursed
from the earth, which hath
opened her mouth to receive thy
brother's blood from thy hand;
[12] 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.
[13] And Cain said unto the
LORD, My punishment is
greater than I can bear.
[14] 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.
[15] 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.
[16] And Cain went out from
the presence of the LORD, and
dwelt in the land of Nod, on the
east of Eden.
[17] 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.
[18] And unto Enoch was born
Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael:
and Mehujael begat Methusael:
and Methusael begat Lamech.
[19] And Lamech took unto
him two wives: the name of the
one was Adah, and the name of
the other Zillah.
[20] And Adah bare Jabal: he
was the father of such as dwell
in tents, and of such as have
cattle.
[21] And his brother's name
was Jubal: he was the father of
all such as handle the harp and
organ.
[22] And Zillah, she also bare
Tubal-cain, an instructer of
every artificer in brass and iron:
and the sister of Tubal-cain
was Naamah.
[23] 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.
[24] If Cain shall be avenged
sevenfold, truly Lamech
seventy and sevenfold.
[25] 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.
[26] 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 LORD.


Gen.5

[1] This is the book of the
generations of Adam. In the
day that God created man, in
the likeness of God made he
him;
[2] Male and female created he
them; and blessed them, and
called their name Adam, in the
day when they were created.
[3] And Adam lived an hundred
and thirty years, and begat a
son in his own likeness, after
his image; and called his name
Seth:
[4] And the days of Adam after
he had begotten Seth were
eight hundred years: and he
begat sons and daughters:
[5] And all the days that Adam
lived were nine hundred and
thirty years: and he died.
[6] And Seth lived an hundred
and five years, and begat Enos:
[7] And Seth lived after he
begat Enos eight hundred and
seven years, and begat sons
and daughters:
[8] And all the days of Seth
were nine hundred and twelve
years: and he died.
[9] And Enos lived ninety
years, and begat Cainan:
[10] And Enos lived after he
begat Cainan eight hundred
and fifteen years, and begat
sons and daughters:
[11] And all the days of Enos
were nine hundred and five
years: and he died.
[12] And Cainan lived seventy
years, and begat Mahalaleel:
[13] And Cainan lived after he
begat Mahalaleel eight
hundred and forty years, and
begat sons and daughters:
[14] And all the days of Cainan
were nine hundred and ten
years: and he died.
[15] And Mahalaleel lived sixty
and five years, and begat Jared:
[16] And Mahalaleel lived after
he begat Jared eight hundred
and thirty years, and begat
sons and daughters:
[17] And all the days of
Mahalaleel were eight hundred
ninety and five years: and he
died.
[18] And Jared lived an
hundred sixty and two years,
and he begat Enoch:
[19] And Jared lived after he
begat Enoch eight hundred
years, and begat sons and
daughters:
[20] And all the days of Jared
were nine hundred sixty and
two years: and he died.
[21] And Enoch lived sixty and
five years, and begat
Methuselah:
[22] And Enoch walked with
God after he begat Methuselah
three hundred years, and begat
sons and daughters:
[23] And all the days of Enoch
were three hundred sixty and
five years:
[24] And Enoch walked with
God: and he was not; for God
took him.
[25] And Methuselah lived an
hundred eighty and seven
years, and begat Lamech:
[26] And Methuselah lived
after he begat Lamech seven
hundred eighty and two years,
and begat sons and daughters:
[27] And all the days of
Methuselah were nine hundred
sixty and nine years: and he
died.
[28] And Lamech lived an
hundred eighty and two years,
and begat a son:
[29] 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.
[30] And Lamech lived after he
begat Noah five hundred ninety
and five years, and begat sons
and daughters:
[31] And all the days of
Lamech were seven hundred
seventy and seven years: and
he died.
[32] And Noah was five
hundred years old: and Noah
begat Shem, Ham, and
Japheth.


Gen.6

[1] And it came to pass, when
men began to multiply on the
face of the earth, and daughters
were born unto them,
[2] That the sons of God saw
the daughters of men that they
were fair; and they took them
wives of all which they chose.
[3] 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.
[4] 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.
[5] 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.
[6] And it repented the LORD
that he had made man on the
earth, and it grieved him at his
heart.
[7] 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.
[8] But Noah found grace in the
eyes of the LORD.
[9] These are the generations of
Noah: Noah was a just man and
perfect in his generations, and
Noah walked with God.
[10] And Noah begat three
sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
[11] The earth also was corrupt
before God, and the earth was
filled with violence.
[12] And God looked upon the
earth, and, behold, it was
corrupt; for all flesh had
corrupted his way upon the
earth.
[13] 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.
[14] Make thee an ark of
gopher wood; rooms shalt thou
make in the ark, and shalt
pitch it within and without
with pitch.
[15] 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.
[16] 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 make it.
[17] 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
die.
[18] 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.
[19] 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.
[20] 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.
[21] 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.
[22] Thus did Noah; according
to all that God commanded
him, so did he.


Gen.7

[1] 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 generation.
[2] 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.
[3] Of fowls also of the air by
sevens, the male and the
female; to keep seed alive upon
the face of all the earth.
[4] 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.
[5] And Noah did according
unto all that the LORD
commanded him.
[6] And Noah was six hundred
years old when the flood of
waters was upon the earth.
[7] 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.
[8] Of clean beasts, and of
beasts that are not clean, and of
fowls, and of every thing that
creepeth upon the earth,
[9] There went in two and two
unto Noah into the ark, the
male and the female, as God
had commanded Noah.
[10] And it came to pass after
seven days, that the waters of
the flood were upon the earth.
[11] 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.
[12] And the rain was upon the
earth forty days and forty
nights.
[13] 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;
[14] 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.
[15] And they went in unto
Noah into the ark, two and two
of all flesh, wherein is the
breath of life.
[16] And they that went in,
went in male and female of all
flesh, as God had commanded
him: and the LORD shut him
in.
[17] 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.
[18] And the waters prevailed,
and were increased greatly
upon the earth; and the ark
went upon the face of the
waters.
[19] And the waters prevailed
exceedingly upon the earth; and
all the high hills, that were
under the whole heaven, were
covered.
[20] Fifteen cubits upward did
the waters prevail; and the
mountains were covered.
[21] 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:
[22] All in whose nostrils was
the breath of life, of all that was
in the dry land, died.
[23] 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.
[24] And the waters prevailed
upon the earth an hundred and
fifty days.


Gen.8

[1] 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;
[2] The fountains also of the
deep and the windows of
heaven were stopped, and the
rain from heaven was
restrained;
[3] And the waters returned
from off the earth continually:
and after the end of the
hundred and fifty days the
waters were abated.
[4] And the ark rested in the
seventh month, on the
seventeenth day of the month,
upon the mountains of Ararat.
[5] 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.
[6] And it came to pass at the
end of forty days, that Noah
opened the window of the ark
which he had made:
[7] And he sent forth a raven,
which went forth to and fro,
until the waters were dried up
from off the earth.
[8] Also he sent forth a dove
from him, to see if the waters
were abated from off the face of
the ground;
[9] 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.
[10] And he stayed yet other
seven days; and again he sent
forth the dove out of the ark;
[11] 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.
[12] And he stayed yet other
seven days; and sent forth the
dove; which returned not again
unto him any more.
[13] 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.
[14] And in the second month,
on the seven and twentieth day
of the month, was the earth
dried.
[15] And God spake unto Noah,
saying,
[16] Go forth of the ark, thou,
and thy wife, and thy sons, and
thy sons' wives with thee.
[17] 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.
[18] And Noah went forth, and
his sons, and his wife, and his
sons' wives with him:
[19] Every beast, every
creeping thing, and every fowl,
and whatsoever creepeth upon
the earth, after their kinds,
went forth out of the ark.
[20] 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.
[21] 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.
[22] While the earth remaineth,
seedtime and harvest, and cold
and heat, and summer and
winter, and day and night shall
not cease.


Gen.9

[1] And God blessed Noah and
his sons, and said unto them,
Be fruitful, and multiply, and
replenish the earth.
[2] 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.
[3] Every moving thing that
liveth shall be meat for you;
even as the green herb have I
given you all things.
[4] But flesh with the life
thereof, which is the blood
thereof, shall ye not eat.
[5] 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.
[6] Whoso sheddeth man's
blood, by man shall his blood be
shed: for in the image of God
made he man.
[7] And you, be ye fruitful, and
multiply; bring forth
abundantly in the earth, and
multiply therein.
[8] And God spake unto Noah,
and to his sons with him,
saying,
[9] And I, behold, I establish
my covenant with you, and
with your seed after you;
[10] 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.
[11] 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.
[12] 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:
[13] I do set my bow in the
cloud, and it shall be for a token
of a covenant between me and
the earth.
[14] And it shall come to pass,
when I bring a cloud over the
earth, that the bow shall be
seen in the cloud:
[15] 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.
[16] 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.
[17] And God said unto Noah,
This is the token of the
covenant, which I have
established between me and all
flesh that is upon the earth.
[18] And the sons of Noah, that
went forth of the ark, were
Shem, and Ham, and Japheth:
and Ham is the father of
Canaan.
[19] These are the three sons of
Noah: and of them was the
whole earth overspread.
[20] And Noah began to be an
husbandman, and he planted a
vineyard:
[21] And he drank of the wine,
and was drunken; and he was
uncovered within his tent.
[22] And Ham, the father of
Canaan, saw the nakedness of
his father, and told his two
brethren without.
[23] 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.
[24] And Noah awoke from his
wine, and knew what his
younger son had done unto him.
[25] And he said, Cursed be
Canaan; a servant of servants
shall he be unto his brethren.
[26] And he said, Blessed be
the LORD God of Shem; and
Canaan shall be his servant.
[27] God shall enlarge Japheth,
and he shall dwell in the tents
of Shem; and Canaan shall be
his servant.
[28] And Noah lived after the
flood three hundred and fifty
years.
[29] And all the days of Noah
were nine hundred and fifty
years: and he died.


Gen.10

[1] Now these are the
generations of the sons of Noah,
Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and
unto them were sons born after
the flood.
[2] The sons of Japheth; Gomer,
and Magog, and Madai, and
Javan, and Tubal, and
Meshech, and Tiras.
[3] And the sons of Gomer;
Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and
Togarmah.
[4] And the sons of Javan;
Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim,
and Dodanim.
[5] By these were the isles of
the Gentiles divided in their
lands; every one after his
tongue, after their families, in
their nations.
[6] And the sons of Ham; Cush,
and Mizraim, and Phut, and
Canaan.
[7] And the sons of Cush; Seba,
and Havilah, and Sabtah, and
Raamah, and Sabtecha: and the
sons of Raamah; Sheba, and
Dedan.
[8] And Cush begat Nimrod: he
began to be a mighty one in the
earth.
[9] He was a mighty hunter
before the LORD: wherefore it
is said, Even as Nimrod the
mighty hunter before the
LORD.
[10] And the beginning of his
kingdom was Babel, and Erech,
and Accad, and Calneh, in the
land of Shinar.
[11] Out of that land went
forth Asshur, and builded
Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth,
and Calah,
[12] And Resen between
Nineveh and Calah: the same is
a great city.
[13] And Mizraim begat
Ludim, and Anamim, and
Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,
[14] And Pathrusim, and
Casluhim, (out of whom came
Philistim,) and Caphtorim.
[15] And Canaan begat Sidon
his firstborn, and Heth,
[16] And the Jebusite, and the
Amorite, and the Girgasite,
[17] And the Hivite, and the
Arkite, and the Sinite,
[18] And the Arvadite, and the
Zemarite, and the Hamathite:
and afterward were the
families of the Canaanites
spread abroad.
[19] 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.
[20] These are the sons of Ham,
after their families, after their
tongues, in their countries, and
in their nations.
[21] Unto Shem also, the father
of all the children of Eber, the
brother of Japheth the elder,
even to him were children born.
[22] The children of Shem;
Elam, and Asshur, and
Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
[23] And the children of Aram;
Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and
Mash.
[24] And Arphaxad begat
Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
[25] 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.
[26] And Joktan begat
Almodad, and Sheleph, and
Hazar-maveth, and Jerah,
[27] And Hadoram, and Uzal,
and Diklah,
[28] And Obal, and Abimael,
and Sheba,
[29] And Ophir, and Havilah,
and Jobab: all these were the
sons of Joktan.
[30] And their dwelling was
from Mesha, as thou goest unto
Sephar a mount of the east.
[31] These are the sons of
Shem, after their families, after
their tongues, in their lands,
after their nations.
[32] 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.


Gen.11

[1] And the whole earth was of
one language, and of one
speech.
[2] And it came to pass, as they
journeyed from the east, that
they found a plain in the land of
Shinar; and they dwelt there.
[3] And they said one to
another, Go to, let us make
brick, and burn them
throughly. And they had brick
for stone, and slime had they
for morter.
[4] 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.
[5] And the LORD came down
to see the city and the tower,
which the children of men
builded.
[6] 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.
[7] Go to, let us go down, and
there confound their language,
that they may not understand
one another's speech.
[8] So the LORD scattered
them abroad from thence upon
the face of all the earth: and
they left off to build the city.
[9] 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.
[10] These are the generations
of Shem: Shem was an hundred
years old, and begat Arphaxad
two years after the flood:
[11] And Shem lived after he
begat Arphaxad five hundred
years, and begat sons and
daughters.
[12] And Arphaxad lived five
and thirty years, and begat
Salah:
[13] And Arphaxad lived after
he begat Salah four hundred
and three years, and begat sons
and daughters.
[14] And Salah lived thirty
years, and begat Eber:
[15] And Salah lived after he
begat Eber four hundred and
three years, and begat sons and
daughters.
[16] And Eber lived four and
thirty years, and begat Peleg:
[17] And Eber lived after he
begat Peleg four hundred and
thirty years, and begat sons
and daughters.
[18] And Peleg lived thirty
years, and begat Reu:
[19] And Peleg lived after he
begat Reu two hundred and
nine years, and begat sons and
daughters.
[20] And Reu lived two and
thirty years, and begat Serug:
[21] And Reu lived after he
begat Serug two hundred and
seven years, and begat sons
and daughters.
[22] And Serug lived thirty
years, and begat Nahor:
[23] And Serug lived after he
begat Nahor two hundred
years, and begat sons and
daughters.
[24] And Nahor lived nine and
twenty years, and begat Terah:
[25] And Nahor lived after he
begat Terah an hundred and
nineteen years, and begat sons
and daughters.
[26] And Terah lived seventy
years, and begat Abram, Nahor,
and Haran.
[27] Now these are the
generations of Terah: Terah
begat Abram, Nahor, and
Haran; and Haran begat Lot.
[28] And Haran died before his
father Terah in the land of his
nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.
[29] 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.
[30] But Sarai was barren; she
had no child.
[31] 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.
[32] And the days of Terah
were two hundred and five
years: and Terah died in Haran.


Gen.12

[1] 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:
[2] 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:
[3] And I will bless them that
bless thee, and curse him that
curseth thee: and in thee shall
all families of the earth be
blessed.
[4] 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.
[5] 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.
[6] And Abram passed through
the land unto the place of
Sichem, unto the plain of
Moreh. And the Canaanite was
then in the land.
[7] 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.
[8] 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.
[9] And Abram journeyed,
going on still toward the south.
[10] And there was a famine in
the land: and Abram went
down into Egypt to sojourn
there; for the famine was
grievous in the land.
[11] 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:
[12] 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.
[13] 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.
[14] And it came to pass, that,
when Abram was come into
Egypt, the Egyptians beheld
the woman that she was very
fair.
[15] The princes also of
Pharaoh saw her, and
commended her before
Pharaoh: and the woman was
taken into Pharaoh's house.
[16] 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.
[17] And the LORD plagued
Pharaoh and his house with
great plagues because of Sarai
Abram's wife.
[18] 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 wife?
[19] 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 thy way.
[20] And Pharaoh commanded
his men concerning him: and
they sent him away, and his
wife, and all that he had.


Gen.13

[1] And Abram went up out of
Egypt, he, and his wife, and all
that he had, and Lot with him,
into the south.
[2] And Abram was very rich in
cattle, in silver, and in gold.
[3] 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;
[4] Unto the place of the altar,
which he had made there at the
first: and there Abram called on
the name of the LORD.
[5] And Lot also, which went
with Abram, had flocks, and
herds, and tents.
[6] 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.
[7] 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.
[8] 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.
[9] 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.
[10] 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.
[11] Then Lot chose him all the
plain of Jordan; and Lot
journeyed east: and they
separated themselves the one
from the other.
[12] Abram dwelled in the land
of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in
the cities of the plain, and
pitched his tent toward Sodom.
[13] But the men of Sodom
were wicked and sinners before
the LORD exceedingly.
[14] 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:
[15] For all the land which thou
seest, to thee will I give it, and
to thy seed for ever.
[16] 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.
[17] Arise, walk through the
land in the length of it and in
the breadth of it; for I will give
it unto thee.
[18] Then Abram removed his
tent, and came and dwelt in the
plain of Mamre, which is in
Hebron, and built there an altar
unto the LORD.


Gen.14

[1] 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;
[2] 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.
[3] All these were joined
together in the vale of Siddim,
which is the salt sea.
[4] Twelve years they served
Chedorlaomer, and in the
thirteenth year they rebelled.
[5] 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
Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim,
[6] And the Horites in their
mount Seir, unto El-paran,
which is by the wilderness.
[7] And they returned, and
came to En-mishpat, which is
Kadesh, and smote all the
country of the Amalekites, and
also the Amorites that dwelt in
Hazezon-tamar.
[8] 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;
[9] 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.
[10] 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.
[11] And they took all the
goods of Sodom and Gomorrah,
and all their victuals, and went
their way.
[12] And they took Lot,
Abram's brother's son, who
dwelt in Sodom, and his goods,
and departed.
[13] And there came one that
had escaped, and told Abram
the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the
plain of Mamre the Amorite,
brother of Eschol, and brother
of Aner: and these were
confederate with Abram.
[14] 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.
[15] 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.
[16] And he brought back all
the goods, and also brought
again his brother Lot, and his
goods, and the women also, and
the people.
[17] 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.
[18] And Melchizedek king of
Salem brought forth bread and
wine: and he was the priest of
the most high God.
[19] And he blessed him, and
said, Blessed be Abram of the
most high God, possessor of
heaven and earth:
[20] And blessed be the most
high God, which hath delivered
thine enemies into thy hand.
And he gave him tithes of all.
[21] And the king of Sodom
said unto Abram, Give me the
persons, and take the goods to
thyself.
[22] 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 earth,
[23] 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:
[24] 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.


Gen.15

[1] 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.
[2] And Abram said, Lord GOD,
what wilt thou give me, seeing I
go childless, and the steward of
my house is this Eliezer of
Damascus?
[3] And Abram said, Behold, to
me thou hast given no seed:
and, lo, one born in my house is
mine heir.
[4] 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.
[5] 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.
[6] And he believed in the
LORD; and he counted it to him
for righteousness.
[7] 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.
[8] And he said, Lord GOD,
whereby shall I know that I
shall inherit it?
[9] 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.
[10] And he took unto him all
these, and divided them in the
midst, and laid each piece one
against another: but the birds
divided he not.
[11] And when the fowls came
down upon the carcases, Abram
drove them away.
[12] And when the sun was
going down, a deep sleep fell
upon Abram; and, lo, an horror
of great darkness fell upon him.
[13] And he said unto Abram,
Know of a surety that thy seed
shall be a stranger in a land
that is not theirs, and shall
serve them; and they shall
afflict them four hundred
years;
[14] And also that nation,
whom they shall serve, will I
judge: and afterward shall they
come out with great substance.
[15] And thou shalt go to thy
fathers in peace; thou shalt be
buried in a good old age.
[16] But in the fourth
generation they shall come
hither again: for the iniquity of
the Amorites is not yet full.
[17] 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.
[18] 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:
[19] The Kenites, and the
Kenizzites, and the
Kadmonites,
[20] And the Hittites, and the
Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
[21] And the Amorites, and the
Canaanites, and the
Girgashites, and the Jebusites.


Gen.16

[1] Now Sarai Abram's wife
bare him no children: and she
had an handmaid, an Egyptian,
whose name was Hagar.
[2] 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.
[3] 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.
[4] And he went in unto Hagar,
and she conceived: and when
she saw that she had conceived,
her mistress was despised in
her eyes.
[5] 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.
[6] But Abram said unto Sarai,
Behold, thy maid is in thy
hand; do to her as it pleaseth
thee. And when Sarai dealt
hardly with her, she fled from
her face.
[7] And the angel of the LORD
found her by a fountain of
water in the wilderness, by the
fountain in the way to Shur.
[8] 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.
[9] And the angel of the LORD
said unto her, Return to thy
mistress, and submit thyself
under her hands.
[10] And the angel of the
LORD said unto her, I will
multiply thy seed exceedingly,
that it shall not be numbered
for multitude.
[11] 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.
[12] 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.
[13] 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?
[14] Wherefore the well was
called Beer-lahai-roi; behold, it
is between Kadesh and Bered.
[15] And Hagar bare Abram a
son: and Abram called his son's
name, which Hagar bare,
Ishmael.
[16] And Abram was fourscore
and six years old, when Hagar
bare Ishmael to Abram.


Gen.17

[1] 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.
[2] And I will make my
covenant between me and thee,
and will multiply thee
exceedingly.
[3] And Abram fell on his face:
and God talked with him,
saying,
[4] As for me, behold, my
covenant is with thee, and thou
shalt be a father of many
nations.
[5] 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.
[6] And I will make thee
exceeding fruitful, and I will
make nations of thee, and kings
shall come out of thee.
[7] 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.
[8] 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.
[9] And God said unto
Abraham, Thou shalt keep my
covenant therefore, thou, and
thy seed after thee in their
generations.
[10] 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.
[11] And ye shall circumcise
the flesh of your foreskin; and it
shall be a token of the covenant
betwixt me and you.
[12] 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.
[13] 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.
[14] And the uncircumcised
man child whose flesh of his
foreskin is not circumcised,
that soul shall be cut off from
his people; he hath broken my
covenant.
[15] And God said unto
Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife,
thou shalt not call her name
Sarai, but Sarah shall her name
be.
[16] And I will bless her, and
give thee a son also of her: yea, I
will bless her, and she shall be a
mother of nations; kings of
people shall be of her.
[17] Then Abraham fell upon
his face, and laughed, and said
in his heart, Shall a child be
born unto him that is an
hundred years old? and shall
Sarah, that is ninety years old,
bear?
[18] And Abraham said unto
God, O that Ishmael might live
before thee!
[19] And God said, Sarah thy
wife shall bear thee a son
indeed; and thou shalt call his
name Isaac: and I will establish
my covenant with him for an
everlasting covenant, and with
his seed after him.
[20] And as for Ishmael, I have
heard thee: Behold, I have
blessed him, and will make him
fruitful, and will multiply him
exceedingly; twelve princes
shall he beget, and I will make
him a great nation.
[21] But my covenant will I
establish with Isaac, which
Sarah shall bear unto thee at
this set time in the next year.
[22] And he left off talking
with him, and God went up
from Abraham.
[23] And Abraham took
Ishmael his son, and all that
were born in his house, and all
that were bought with his
money, every male among the
men of Abraham's house; and
circumcised the flesh of their
foreskin in the selfsame day, as
God had said unto him.
[24] And Abraham was ninety
years old and nine, when he
was circumcised in the flesh of
his foreskin.
[25] And Ishmael his son was
thirteen years old, when he was
circumcised in the flesh of his
foreskin.
[26] In the selfsame day was
Abraham circumcised, and
Ishmael his son.
[27] And all the men of his
house, born in the house, and
bought with money of the
stranger, were circumcised with
him.


Gen.18

[1] And the LORD appeared
unto him in the plains of
Mamre: and he sat in the tent
door in the heat of the day;
[2] And he lift up his eyes and
looked, and, lo, three men stood
by him: and when he saw them,
he ran to meet them from the
tent door, and bowed himself
toward the ground,
[3] And said, My Lord, if now I
have found favour in thy sight,
pass not away, I pray thee, from
thy servant:
[4] Let a little water, I pray
you, be fetched, and wash your
feet, and rest yourselves under
the tree:
[5] And I will fetch a morsel of
bread, and comfort ye your
hearts; after that ye shall pass
on: for therefore are ye come to
your servant. And they said, So
do, as thou hast said.
[6] And Abraham hastened into
the tent unto Sarah, and said,
Make ready quickly three
measures of fine meal, knead it,
and make cakes upon the
hearth.
[7] And Abraham ran unto the
herd, and fetcht a calf tender
and good, and gave it unto a
young man; and he hasted to
dress it.
[8] And he took butter, and
milk, and the calf which he had
dressed, and set it before them;
and he stood by them under the
tree, and they did eat.
[9] And they said unto him,
Where is Sarah thy wife? And
he said, Behold, in the tent.
[10] And he said, I will
certainly return unto thee
according to the time of life;
and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall
have a son. And Sarah heard it
in the tent door, which was
behind him.
[11] Now Abraham and Sarah
were old and well stricken in
age; and it ceased to be with
Sarah after the manner of
women.
[12] Therefore Sarah laughed
within herself, saying, After I
am waxed old shall I have
pleasure, my lord being old
also?
[13] And the LORD said unto
Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah
laugh, saying, Shall I of a
surety bear a child, which am
ol

...
blather [1] The Revelation of Jesus
Christ, which God gave unto
him, to shew unto his servants
things which must shortly
come to pass; and he sent and
signified it by his angel unto
his servant John:
[2] Who bare record of the word
of God, and of the testimony of
Jesus Christ, and of all things
that he saw.
[3] Blessed is he that readeth,
and they that hear the words of
this prophecy, and keep those
things which are written
therein: for the time is at hand.
[4] John to the seven churches
which are in Asia: Grace be
unto you, and peace, from him
which is, and which was, and
which is to come; and from the
seven Spirits which are before
his throne;
[5] And from Jesus Christ, who
is the faithful witness, and the
first begotten of the dead, and
the prince of the kings of the
earth. Unto him that loved us,
and washed us from our sins in
his own blood,
[6] And hath made us kings
and priests unto God and his
Father; to him be glory and
dominion for ever and ever.
Amen.
[7] Behold, he cometh with
clouds; and every eye shall see
him, and they also which
pierced him: and all kindreds of
the earth shall wail because of
him. Even so, Amen.
[8] I am Alpha and Omega, the
beginning and the ending, saith
the Lord, which is, and which
was, and which is to come, the
Almighty.
[9] I John, who also am your
brother, and companion in
tribulation, and in the kingdom
and patience of Jesus Christ,
was in the isle that is called
Patmos, for the word of God,
and for the testimony of Jesus
Christ.
[10] I was in the Spirit on the
Lord's day, and heard behind
me a great voice, as of a
trumpet,
[11] Saying, I am Alpha and
Omega, the first and the last:
and, What thou seest, write in a
book, and send it unto the
seven churches which are in
Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto
Smyrna, and unto Pergamos,
and unto Thyatira, and unto
Sardis, and unto Philadelphia,
and unto Laodicea.
[12] And I turned to see the
voice that spake with me. And
being turned, I saw seven
golden candlesticks;
[13] And in the midst of the
seven candlesticks one like
unto the Son of man, clothed
with a garment down to the
foot, and girt about the paps
with a golden girdle.
[14] His head and his hairs
were white like wool, as white
as snow; and his eyes were as a
flame of fire;
[15] And his feet like unto fine
brass, as if they burned in a
furnace; and his voice as the
sound of many waters.
[16] And he had in his right
hand seven stars: and out of his
mouth went a sharp twoedged
sword: and his countenance
was as the sun shineth in his
strength.
[17] And when I saw him, I fell
at his feet as dead. And he laid
his right hand upon me, saying
unto me, Fear not; I am the
first and the last:
[18] I am he that liveth, and
was dead; and, behold, I am
alive for evermore, Amen; and
have the keys of hell and of
death.
[19] Write the things which
thou hast seen, and the things
which are, and the things which
shall be hereafter;
[20] The mystery of the seven
stars which thou sawest in my
right hand, and the seven
golden candlesticks. The seven
stars are the angels of the
seven churches: and the seven
candlesticks which thou sawest
are the seven churches.


Rev.2

[1] Unto the angel of the church
of Ephesus write; These things
saith he that holdeth the seven
stars in his right hand, who
walketh in the midst of the
seven golden candlesticks;
[2] I know thy works, and thy
labour, and thy patience, and
how thou canst not bear them
which are evil: and thou hast
tried them which say they are
apostles, and are not, and hast
found them liars:
[3] And hast borne, and hast
patience, and for my name's
sake hast laboured, and hast
not fainted.
[4] Nevertheless I have
somewhat against thee,
because thou hast left thy first
love.
[5] Remember therefore from
whence thou art fallen, and
repent, and do the first works;
or else I will come unto thee
quickly, and will remove thy
candlestick out of his place,
except thou repent.
[6] But this thou hast, that
thou hatest the deeds of the
Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
[7] He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto
the churches; To him that
overcometh will I give to eat of
the tree of life, which is in the
midst of the paradise of God.
[8] And unto the angel of the
church in Smyrna write; These
things saith the first and the
last, which was dead, and is
alive;
[9] I know thy works, and
tribulation, and poverty, (but
thou art rich) and I know the
blasphemy of them which say
they are Jews, and are not, but
are the synagogue of Satan.
[10] Fear none of those things
which thou shalt suffer: behold,
the devil shall cast some of you
into prison, that ye may be
tried; and ye shall have
tribulation ten days: be thou
faithful unto death, and I will
give thee a crown of life.
[11] He that hath an ear, let
him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches; He that
overcometh shall not be hurt of
the second death.
[12] And to the angel of the
church in Pergamos write;
These things saith he which
hath the sharp sword with two
edges;
[13] I know thy works, and
where thou dwellest, even
where Satan's seat is: and thou
holdest fast my name, and hast
not denied my faith, even in
those days wherein Antipas
was my faithful martyr, who
was slain among you, where
Satan dwelleth.
[14] But I have a few things
against thee, because thou hast
there them that hold the
doctrine of Balaam, who taught
Balac to cast a stumblingblock
before the children of Israel, to
eat things sacrificed unto idols,
and to commit fornication.
[15] So hast thou also them
that hold the doctrine of the
Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
[16] Repent; or else I will come
unto thee quickly, and will fight
against them with the sword of
my mouth.
[17] He that hath an ear, let
him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches; To him that
overcometh will I give to eat of
the hidden manna, and will
give him a white stone, and in
the stone a new name written,
which no man knoweth saving
he that receiveth it.
[18] And unto the angel of the
church in Thyatira write; These
things saith the Son of God,
who hath his eyes like unto a
flame of fire, and his feet are
like fine brass;
[19] I know thy works, and
charity, and service, and faith,
and thy patience, and thy
works; and the last to be more
than the first.
[20] Notwithstanding I have a
few things against thee,
because thou sufferest that
woman Jezebel, which calleth
herself a prophetess, to teach
and to seduce my servants to
commit fornication, and to eat
things sacrificed unto idols.
[21] And I gave her space to
repent of her fornication; and
she repented not.
[22] Behold, I will cast her into
a bed, and them that commit
adultery with her into great
tribulation, except they repent
of their deeds.
[23] And I will kill her children
with death; and all the
churches shall know that I am
he which searcheth the reins
and hearts: and I will give unto
every one of you according to
your works.
[24] But unto you I say, and
unto the rest in Thyatira, as
many as have not this doctrine,
and which have not known the
depths of Satan, as they speak;
I will put upon you none other
burden.
[25] But that which ye have
already hold fast till I come.
[26] And he that overcometh,
and keepeth my works unto the
end, to him will I give power
over the nations:
[27] And he shall rule them
with a rod of iron; as the vessels
of a potter shall they be broken
to shivers: even as I received of
my Father.
[28] And I will give him the
morning star.
[29] He that hath an ear, let
him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches.


Rev.3

[1] And unto the angel of the
church in Sardis write; These
things saith he that hath the
seven Spirits of God, and the
seven stars; I know thy works,
that thou hast a name that
thou livest, and art dead.
[2] Be watchful, and
strengthen the things which
remain, that are ready to die:
for I have not found thy works
perfect before God.
[3] Remember therefore how
thou hast received and heard,
and hold fast, and repent. If
therefore thou shalt not watch,
I will come on thee as a thief,
and thou shalt not know what
hour I will come upon thee.
[4] Thou hast a few names even
in Sardis which have not
defiled their garments; and
they shall walk with me in
white: for they are worthy.
[5] He that overcometh, the
same shall be clothed in white
raiment; and I will not blot out
his name out of the book of life,
but I will confess his name
before my Father, and before
his angels.
[6] He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto
the churches.
[7] And to the angel of the
church in Philadelphia write;
These things saith he that is
holy, he that is true, he that
hath the key of David, he that
openeth, and no man shutteth;
and shutteth, and no man
openeth;
[8] I know thy works: behold, I
have set before thee an open
door, and no man can shut it:
for thou hast a little strength,
and hast kept my word, and
hast not denied my name.
[9] Behold, I will make them of
the synagogue of Satan, which
say they are Jews, and are not,
but do lie; behold, I will make
them to come and worship
before thy feet, and to know
that I have loved thee.
[10] Because thou hast kept
the word of my patience, I also
will keep thee from the hour of
temptation, which shall come
upon all the world, to try them
that dwell upon the earth.
[11] Behold, I come quickly:
hold that fast which thou hast,
that no man take thy crown.
[12] Him that overcometh will I
make a pillar in the temple of
my God, and he shall go no
more out: and I will write upon
him the name of my God, and
the name of the city of my God,
which is new Jerusalem, which
cometh down out of heaven
from my God: and I will write
upon him my new name.
[13] He that hath an ear, let
him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches.
[14] And unto the angel of the
church of the Laodiceans write;
These things saith the Amen,
the faithful and true witness,
the beginning of the creation of
God;
[15] I know thy works, that
thou art neither cold nor hot: I
would thou wert cold or hot.
[16] So then because thou art
lukewarm, and neither cold nor
hot, I will spue thee out of my
mouth.
[17] Because thou sayest, I am
rich, and increased with goods,
and have need of nothing; and
knowest not that thou art
wretched, and miserable, and
poor, and blind, and naked:
[18] I counsel thee to buy of me
gold tried in the fire, that thou
mayest be rich; and white
raiment, that thou mayest be
clothed, and that the shame of
thy nakedness do not appear;
and anoint thine eyes with
eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
[19] As many as I love, I rebuke
and chasten: be zealous
therefore, and repent.
[20] Behold, I stand at the
door, and knock: if any man
hear my voice, and open the
door, I will come in to him, and
will sup with him, and he with
me.
[21] To him that overcometh
will I grant to sit with me in my
throne, even as I also overcame,
and am set down with my
Father in his throne.
[22] He that hath an ear, let
him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches.


Rev.4

[1] After this I looked, and,
behold, a door was opened in
heaven: and the first voice
which I heard was as it were of
a trumpet talking with me;
which said, Come up hither,
and I will shew thee things
which must be hereafter.
[2] And immediately I was in
the spirit: and, behold, a throne
was set in heaven, and one sat
on the throne.
[3] And he that sat was to look
upon like a jasper and a sardine
stone: and there was a rainbow
round about the throne, in sight
like unto an emerald.
[4] And round about the throne
were four and twenty seats:
and upon the seats I saw four
and twenty elders sitting,
clothed in white raiment; and
they had on their heads crowns
of gold.
[5] And out of the throne
proceeded lightnings and
thunderings and voices: and
there were seven lamps of fire
burning before the throne,
which are the seven Spirits of
God.
[6] And before the throne there
was a sea of glass like unto
crystal: and in the midst of the
throne, and round about the
throne, were four beasts full of
eyes before and behind.
[7] And the first beast was like
a lion, and the second beast like
a calf, and the third beast had a
face as a man, and the fourth
beast was like a flying eagle.
[8] And the four beasts had
each of them six wings about
him; and they were full of eyes
within: and they rest not day
and night, saying, Holy, holy,
holy, Lord God Almighty, which
was, and is, and is to come.
[9] And when those beasts give
glory and honour and thanks to
him that sat on the throne, who
liveth for ever and ever,
[10] The four and twenty elders
fall down before him that sat on
the throne, and worship him
that liveth for ever and ever,
and cast their crowns before the
throne, saying,
[11] Thou art worthy, O Lord,
to receive glory and honour and
power: for thou hast created all
things, and for thy pleasure
they are and were created.


Rev.5

[1] And I saw in the right hand
of him that sat on the throne a
book written within and on the
backside, sealed with seven
seals.
[2] And I saw a strong angel
proclaiming with a loud voice,
Who is worthy to open the book,
and to loose the seals thereof?
[3] And no man in heaven, nor
in earth, neither under the
earth, was able to open the
book, neither to look thereon.
[4] And I wept much, because
no man was found worthy to
open and to read the book,
neither to look thereon.
[5] And one of the elders saith
unto me, Weep not: behold, the
Lion of the tribe of Juda, the
Root of David, hath prevailed to
open the book, and to loose the
seven seals thereof.
[6] And I beheld, and, lo, in the
midst of the throne and of the
four beasts, and in the midst of
the elders, stood a Lamb as it
had been slain, having seven
horns and seven eyes, which are
the seven Spirits of God sent
forth into all the earth.
[7] And he came and took the
book out of the right hand of
him that sat upon the throne.
[8] And when he had taken the
book, the four beasts and four
and twenty elders fell down
before the Lamb, having every
one of them harps, and golden
vials full of odours, which are
the prayers of saints.
[9] And they sung a new song,
saying, Thou art worthy to take
the book, and to open the seals
thereof: for thou wast slain, and
hast redeemed us to God by thy
blood out of every kindred, and
tongue, and people, and nation;
[10] And hast made us unto
our God kings and priests: and
we shall reign on the earth.
[11] And I beheld, and I heard
the voice of many angels round
about the throne and the beasts
and the elders: and the number
of them was ten thousand
times ten thousand, and
thousands of thousands;
[12] Saying with a loud voice,
Worthy is the Lamb that was
slain to receive power, and
riches, and wisdom, and
strength, and honour, and
glory, and blessing.
[13] And every creature which
is in heaven, and on the earth,
and under the earth, and such
as are in the sea, and all that
are in them, heard I saying,
Blessing, and honour, and
glory, and power, be unto him
that sitteth upon the throne,
and unto the Lamb for ever and
ever.
[14] And the four beasts said,
Amen. And the four and twenty
elders fell down and
worshipped him that liveth for
ever and ever.


Rev.6

[1] And I saw when the Lamb
opened one of the seals, and I
heard, as it were the noise of
thunder, one of the four beasts
saying, Come and see.
[2] And I saw, and behold a
white horse: and he that sat on
him had a bow; and a crown
was given unto him: and he
went forth conquering, and to
conquer.
[3] And when he had opened
the second seal, I heard the
second beast say, Come and
see.
[4] And there went out another
horse that was red: and power
was given to him that sat
thereon to take peace from the
earth, and that they should kill
one another: and there was
given unto him a great sword.
[5] And when he had opened
the third seal, I heard the third
beast say, Come and see. And I
beheld, and lo a black horse;
and he that sat on him had a
pair of balances in his hand.
[6] And I heard a voice in the
midst of the four beasts say, A
measure of wheat for a penny,
and three measures of barley
for a penny; and see thou hurt
not the oil and the wine.
[7] And when he had opened
the fourth seal, I heard the
voice of the fourth beast say,
Come and see.
[8] And I looked, and behold a
pale horse: and his name that
sat on him was Death, and Hell
followed with him. And power
was given unto them over the
fourth part of the earth, to kill
with sword, and with hunger,
and with death, and with the
beasts of the earth.
[9] And when he had opened
the fifth seal, I saw under the
altar the souls of them that
were slain for the word of God,
and for the testimony which
they held:
[10] And they cried with a loud
voice, saying, How long, O Lord,
holy and true, dost thou not
judge and avenge our blood on
them that dwell on the earth?
[11] And white robes were
given unto every one of them;
and it was said unto them, that
they should rest yet for a little
season, until their
fellowservants also and their
brethren, that should be killed
as they were, should be
fulfilled.
[12] And I beheld when he had
opened the sixth seal, and, lo,
there was a great earthquake;
and the sun became black as
sackcloth of hair, and the moon
became as blood;
[13] And the stars of heaven
fell unto the earth, even as a fig
tree casteth her untimely figs,
when she is shaken of a mighty
wind.
[14] And the heaven departed
as a scroll when it is rolled
together; and every mountain
and island were moved out of
their places.
[15] And the kings of the earth,
and the great men, and the rich
men, and the chief captains,
and the mighty men, and every
bondman, and every free man,
hid themselves in the dens and
in the rocks of the mountains;
[16] And said to the mountains
and rocks, Fall on us, and hide
us from the face of him that
sitteth on the throne, and from
the wrath of the Lamb:
[17] For the great day of his
wrath is come; and who shall be
able to stand?


Rev.7

[1] And after these things I
saw four angels standing on the
four corners of the earth,
holding the four winds of the
earth, that the wind should not
blow on the earth, nor on the
sea, nor on any tree.
[2] And I saw another angel
ascending from the east, having
the seal of the living God: and
he cried with a loud voice to the
four angels, to whom it was
given to hurt the earth and the
sea,
[3] Saying, Hurt not the earth,
neither the sea, nor the trees,
till we have sealed the servants
of our God in their foreheads.
[4] And I heard the number of
them which were sealed: and
there were sealed an hundred
and forty and four thousand of
all the tribes of the children of
Israel.
[5] Of the tribe of Juda were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Reuben were sealed
twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Gad were sealed twelve
thousand.
[6] Of the tribe of Aser were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Nepthalim were sealed
twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Manasses were sealed twelve
thousand.
[7] Of the tribe of Simeon were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Levi were sealed twelve
thousand. Of the tribe of
Issachar were sealed twelve
thousand.
[8] Of the tribe of Zabulon were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Joseph were sealed
twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Benjamin were sealed twelve
thousand.
[9] After this I beheld, and, lo, a
great multitude, which no man
could number, of all nations,
and kindreds, and people, and
tongues, stood before the
throne, and before the Lamb,
clothed with white robes, and
palms in their hands;
[10] And cried with a loud
voice, saying, Salvation to our
God which sitteth upon the
throne, and unto the Lamb.
[11] And all the angels stood
round about the throne, and
about the elders and the four
beasts, and fell before the
throne on their faces, and
worshipped God,
[12] Saying, Amen: Blessing,
and glory, and wisdom, and
thanksgiving, and honour, and
power, and might, be unto our
God for ever and ever. Amen.
[13] And one of the elders
answered, saying unto me,
What are these which are
arrayed in white robes? and
whence came they?
[14] And I said unto him, Sir,
thou knowest. And he said to
me, These are they which came
out of great tribulation, and
have washed their robes, and
made them white in the blood
of the Lamb.
[15] Therefore are they before
the throne of God, and serve
him day and night in his
temple: and he that sitteth on
the throne shall dwell among
them.
[16] They shall hunger no more,
neither thirst any more; neither
shall the sun light on them, nor
any heat.
[17] For the Lamb which is in
the midst of the throne shall
feed them, and shall lead them
unto living fountains of waters:
and God shall wipe away all
tears from their eyes.


Rev.8

[1] And when he had opened
the seventh seal, there was
silence in heaven about the
space of half an hour.
[2] And I saw the seven angels
which stood before God; and to
them were given seven
trumpets.
[3] And another angel came
and stood at the altar, having a
golden censer; and there was
given unto him much incense,
that he should offer it with the
prayers of all saints upon the
golden altar which was before
the throne.
[4] And the smoke of the
incense, which came with the
prayers of the saints, ascended
up before God out of the angel's
hand.
[5] And the angel took the
censer, and filled it with fire of
the altar, and cast it into the
earth: and there were voices,
and thunderings, and
lightnings, and an earthquake.
[6] And the seven angels which
had the seven trumpets
prepared themselves to sound.
[7] The first angel sounded,
and there followed hail and fire
mingled with blood, and they
were cast upon the earth: and
the third part of trees was
burnt up, and all green grass
was burnt up.
[8] And the second angel
sounded, and as it were a great
mountain burning with fire was
cast into the sea: and the third
part of the sea became blood;
[9] And the third part of the
creatures which were in the sea,
and had life, died; and the third
part of the ships were
destroyed.
[10] And the third angel
sounded, and there fell a great
star from heaven, burning as it
were a lamp, and it fell upon
the third part of the rivers, and
upon the fountains of waters;
[11] And the name of the star
is called Wormwood: and the
third part of the waters became
wormwood; and many men died
of the waters, because they
were made bitter.
[12] And the fourth angel
sounded, and the third part of
the sun was smitten, and the
third part of the moon, and the
third part of the stars; so as the
third part of them was
darkened, and the day shone
not for a third part of it, and
the night likewise.
[13] And I beheld, and heard an
angel flying through the midst
of heaven, saying with a loud
voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the
inhabiters of the earth by
reason of the other voices of the
trumpet of the three angels,
which are yet to sound!


Rev.9

[1] And the fifth angel
sounded, and I saw a star fall
from heaven unto the earth:
and to him was given the key of
the bottomless pit.
[2] And he opened the
bottomless pit; and there arose
a smoke out of the pit, as the
smoke of a great furnace; and
the sun and the air were
darkened by reason of the
smoke of the pit.
[3] And there came out of the
smoke locusts upon the earth:
and unto them was given
power, as the scorpions of the
earth have power.
[4] And it was commanded
them that they should not hurt
the grass of the earth, neither
any green thing, neither any
tree; but only those men which
have not the seal of God in their
foreheads.
[5] And to them it was given
that they should not kill them,
but that they should be
tormented five months: and
their torment was as the
torment of a scorpion, when he
striketh a man.
[6] And in those days shall men
seek death, and shall not find
it; and shall desire to die, and
death shall flee from them.
[7] And the shapes of the
locusts were like unto horses
prepared unto battle; and on
their heads were as it were
crowns like gold, and their faces
were as the faces of men.
[8] And they had hair as the
hair of women, and their teeth
were as the teeth of lions.
[9] And they had breastplates,
as it were breastplates of iron;
and the sound of their wings
was as the sound of chariots of
many horses running to battle.
[10] And they had tails like
unto scorpions, and there were
stings in their tails: and their
power was to hurt men five
months.
[11] And they had a king over
them, which is the angel of the
bottomless pit, whose name in
the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon,
but in the Greek tongue hath
his name Apollyon.
[12] One woe is past; and,
behold, there come two woes
more hereafter.
[13] And the sixth angel
sounded, and I heard a voice
from the four horns of the
golden altar which is before
God,
[14] Saying to the sixth angel
which had the trumpet, Loose
the four angels which are bound
in the great river Euphrates.
[15] And the four angels were
loosed, which were prepared for
an hour, and a day, and a
month, and a year, for to slay
the third part of men.
[16] And the number of the
army of the horsemen were two
hundred thousand thousand:
and I heard the number of
them.
[17] And thus I saw the horses
in the vision, and them that sat
on them, having breastplates of
fire, and of jacinth, and
brimstone: and the heads of the
horses were as the heads of
lions; and out of their mouths
issued fire and smoke and
brimstone.
[18] By these three was the
third part of men killed, by the
fire, and by the smoke, and by
the brimstone, which issued out
of their mouths.
[19] For their power is in their
mouth, and in their tails: for
their tails were like unto
serpents, and had heads, and
with them they do hurt.
[20] And the rest of the men
which were not killed by these
plagues yet repented not of the
works of their hands, that they
should not worship devils, and
idols of gold, and silver, and
brass, and stone, and of wood:
which neither can see, nor hear,
nor walk:
[21] Neither repented they of
their murders, nor of their
sorceries, nor of their
fornication, nor of their thefts.


Rev.10

[1] And I saw another mighty
angel come down from heaven,
clothed with a cloud: and a
rainbow was upon his head, and
his face was as it were the sun,
and his feet as pillars of fire:
[2] And he had in his hand a
little book open: and he set his
right foot upon the sea, and his
left foot on the earth,
[3] And cried with a loud voice,
as when a lion roareth: and
when he had cried, seven
thunders uttered their voices.
[4] And when the seven
thunders had uttered their
voices, I was about to write: and
I heard a voice from heaven
saying unto me, Seal up those
things which the seven
thunders uttered, and write
them not.
[5] And the angel which I saw
stand upon the sea and upon
the earth lifted up his hand to
heaven,
[6] And sware by him that
liveth for ever and ever, who
created heaven, and the things
that therein are, and the earth,
and the things that therein are,
and the sea, and the things
which are therein, that there
should be time no longer:
[7] But in the days of the voice
of the seventh angel, when he
shall begin to sound, the
mystery of God should be
finished, as he hath declared to
his servants the prophets.
[8] And the voice which I heard
from heaven spake unto me
again, and said, Go and take
the little book which is open in
the hand of the angel which
standeth upon the sea and
upon the earth.
[9] And I went unto the angel,
and said unto him, Give me the
little book. And he said unto
me, Take it, and eat it up; and
it shall make thy belly bitter,
but it shall be in thy mouth
sweet as honey.
[10] And I took the little book
out of the angel's hand, and ate
it up; and it was in my mouth
sweet as honey: and as soon as
I had eaten it, my belly was
bitter.
[11] And he said unto me, Thou
must prophesy again before
many peoples, and nations, and
tongues, and kings.


Rev.11

[1] And there was given me a
reed like unto a rod: and the
angel stood, saying, Rise, and
measure the temple of God, and
the altar, and them that
worship therein.
[2] But the court which is
without the temple leave out,
and measure it not; for it is
given unto the Gentiles: and
the holy city shall they tread
under foot forty and two
months.
[3] And I will give power unto
my two witnesses, and they
shall prophesy a thousand two
hundred and threescore days,
clothed in sackcloth.
[4] These are the two olive
trees, and the two candlesticks
standing before the God of the
earth.
[5] And if any man will hurt
them, fire proceedeth out of
their mouth, and devoureth
their enemies: and if any man
will hurt them, he must in this
manner be killed.
[6] These have power to shut
heaven, that it rain not in the
days of their prophecy: and
have power over waters to turn
them to blood, and to smite the
earth with all plagues, as often
as they will.
[7] And when they shall have
finished their testimony, the
beast that ascendeth out of the
bottomless pit shall make war
against them, and shall
overcome them, and kill them.
[8] And their dead bodies shall
lie in the street of the great
city, which spiritually is called
Sodom and Egypt, where also
our Lord was crucified.
[9] And they of the people and
kindreds and tongues and
nations shall see their dead
bodies three days and an half,
and shall not suffer their dead
bodies to be put in graves.
[10] And they that dwell upon
the earth shall rejoice over
them, and make merry, and
shall send gifts one to another;
because these two prophets
tormented them that dwelt on
the earth.
[11] And after three days and
an half the Spirit of life from
God entered into them, and
they stood upon their feet; and
great fear fell upon them which
saw them.
[12] And they heard a great
voice from heaven saying unto
them, Come up hither. And
they ascended up to heaven in a
cloud; and their enemies beheld
them.
[13] And the same hour was
there a great earthquake, and
the tenth part of the city fell,
and in the earthquake were
slain of men seven thousand:
and the remnant were
affrighted, and gave glory to
the God of heaven.
[14] The second woe is past;
and, behold, the third woe
cometh quickly.
[15] And the seventh angel
sounded; and there were great
voices in heaven, saying, The
kingdoms of this world are
become the kingdoms of our
Lord, and of his Christ; and he
shall reign for ever and ever.
[16] And the four and twenty
elders, which sat before God on
their seats, fell upon their faces,
and worshipped God,
[17] Saying, We give thee
thanks, O Lord God Almighty,
which art, and wast, and art to
come; because thou hast taken
to thee thy great power, and
hast reigned.
[18] And the nations were
angry, and thy wrath is come,
and the time of the dead, that
they should be judged, and that
thou shouldest give reward
unto thy servants the prophets,
and to the saints, and them
that fear thy name, small and
great; and shouldest destroy
them which destroy the earth.
[19] And the temple of God was
opened in heaven, and there
was seen in his temple the ark
of his testament: and there
were lightnings, and voices, and
thunderings, and an
earthquake, and great hail.


Rev.12

[1] And there appeared a great
wonder in heaven; a woman
clothed with the sun, and the
moon under her feet, and upon
her head a crown of twelve
stars:
[2] And she being with child
cried, travailing in birth, and
pained to be delivered.
[3] And there appeared another
wonder in heaven; and behold a
great red dragon, having seven
heads and ten horns, and seven
crowns upon his heads.
[4] And his tail drew the third
part of the stars of heaven, and
did cast them to the earth: and
the dragon stood before the
woman which was ready to be
delivered, for to devour her
child as soon as it was born.
[5] And she brought forth a
man child, who was to rule all
nations with a rod of iron: and
her child was caught up unto
God, and to his throne.
[6] And the woman fled into
the wilderness, where she hath
a place prepared of God, that
they should feed her there a
thousand two hundred and
threescore days.
[7] And there was war in
heaven: Michael and his angels
fought against the dragon; and
the dragon fought and his
angels,
[8] And prevailed not; neither
was their place found any more
in heaven.
[9] And the great dragon was
cast out, that old serpent, called
the Devil, and Satan, which
deceiveth the whole world: he
was cast out into the earth, and
his angels were cast out with
him.
[10] And I heard a loud voice
saying in heaven, Now is come
salvation, and strength, and
the kingdom of our God, and
the power of his Christ: for the
accuser of our brethren is cast
down, which accused them
before our God day and night.
[11] And they overcame him by
the blood of the Lamb, and by
the word of their testimony;
and they loved not their lives
unto the death.
[12] Therefore rejoice, ye
heavens, and ye that dwell in
them. Woe to the inhabiters of
the earth and of the sea! for the
devil is come down unto you,
having great wrath, because he
knoweth that he hath but a
short time.
[13] And when the dragon saw
that he was cast unto the earth,
he persecuted the woman which
brought forth the man child.
[14] And to the woman were
given two wings of a great
eagle, that she might fly into
the wilderness, into her place,
where she is nourished for a
time, and times, and half a
time, from the face of the
serpent.
[15] And the serpent cast out of
his mouth water as a flood after
the woman, that he might
cause her to be carried away of
the flood.
[16] And the earth helped the
woman, and the earth opened
her mouth, and swallowed up
the flood which the dragon cast
out of his mouth.
[17] And the dragon was wroth
with the woman, and went to
make war with the remnant of
her seed, which keep the
commandments of God, and
have the testimony of Jesus
Christ.


Rev.13

[1] And I stood upon the sand
of the sea, and saw a beast rise
up out of the sea, having seven
heads and ten horns, and upon
his horns ten crowns, and upon
his heads the name of
blasphemy.
[2] And the beast which I saw
was like unto a leopard, and his
feet were as the feet of a bear,
and his mouth as the mouth of
a lion: and the dragon gave him
his power, and his seat, and
great authority.
[3] And I saw one of his heads
as it were wounded to death;
and his deadly wound was
healed: and all the world
wondered after the beast.
[4] And they worshipped the
dragon which gave power unto
the beast: and they worshipped
the beast, saying, Who is like
unto the beast? who is able to
make war with him?
[5] And there was given unto
him a mouth speaking great
things and blasphemies; and
power was given unto him to
continue forty and two months.
[6] And he opened his mouth in
blasphemy against God, to
blaspheme his name, and his
tabernacle, and them that
dwell in heaven.
[7] And it was given unto him
to make war with the saints,
and to overcome them: and
power was given him over all
kindreds, and tongues, and
nations.
[8] And all that dwell upon the
earth shall worship him, whose
names are not written in the
book of life of the Lamb slain
from the foundation of the
world.
[9] If any man have an ear, let
him hear.
[10] He that leadeth into
captivity shall go into captivity:
he that killeth with the sword
must be killed with the sword.
Here is the patience and the
faith of the saints.
[11] And I beheld another beast
coming up out of the earth; and
he had two horns like a lamb,
and he spake as a dragon.
[12] And he exerciseth all the
power of the first beast before
him, and causeth the earth and
them which dwell therein to
worship the first beast, whose
deadly wound was healed.
[13] And he doeth great
wonders, so that he maketh fire
come down from heaven on the
earth in the sight of men,
[14] And deceiveth them that
dwell on the earth by the
means of those miracles which
he had power to do in the sight
of the beast; saying to them
that dwell on the earth, that
they should make an image to
the beast, which had the wound
by a sword, and did live.
[15] And he had power to give
life unto the image of the beast,
that the image of the beast
should both speak, and cause
that as many as would not
worship the image of the beast
should be killed.
[16] And he causeth all, both
small and great, rich and poor,
free and bond, to receive a mark
in their right hand, or in their
foreheads:
[17] And that no man might
buy or sell, save he that had the
mark, or the name of the beast,
or the number of his name.
[18] Here is wisdom. Let him
that hath understanding count
the number of the beast: for it
is the number of a man; and his
number is Six hundred
threescore and six.


Rev.14

[1] And I looked, and, lo, a
Lamb stood on the mount Sion,
and with him an hundred forty
and four thousand, having his
Father's name written in their
foreheads.
[2] And I heard a voice from
heaven, as the voice of many
waters, and as the voice of a
great thunder: and I heard the
voice of harpers harping with
their harps:
[3] And they sung as it were a
new song before the throne, and
before the four beasts, and the
elders: and no man could learn
that song but the hundred and
forty and four thousand, which
were redeemed from the earth.
[4] These are they which were
not defiled with women; for
they are virgins. These are they
which follow the Lamb
whithersoever he goeth. These
were redeemed from among
men, being the firstfruits unto
God and to the Lamb.
[5] And in their mouth was
found no guile: for they are
without fault before the throne
of God.
[6] And I saw another angel fly
in the midst of heaven, having
the everlasting gospel to preach
unto them that dwell on the
earth, and to every nation, and
kindred, and tongue, and
people,
[7] Saying with a loud voice,
Fear God, and give glory to him;
for the hour of his judgment is
come: and worship him that
made heaven, and earth, and
the sea, and the fountains of
waters.
[8] And there followed another
angel, saying, Babylon is fallen,
is fallen, that great city,
because she made all nations
drink of the wine of the wrath
of her fornication.
[9] And the third angel
followed them, saying with a
loud voice, If any man worship
the beast and his image, and
receive his mark in his
forehead, or in his hand,
[10] The same shall drink of
the wine of the wrath of God,
which is poured out without
mixture into the cup of his
indignation; and he shall be
tormented with fire and
brimstone in the presence of the
holy angels, and in the presence
of the Lamb:
[11] And the smoke of their
torment ascendeth up for ever
and ever: and they have no rest
day nor night, who worship the
beast and his image, and
whosoever receiveth the mark
of his name.
[12] Here is the patience of the
saints: here are they that keep
the commandments of God, and
the faith of Jesus.
[13] And I heard a voice from
heaven saying unto me, Write,
Blessed are the dead which die
in the Lord from henceforth:
Yea, saith the Spirit, that they
may rest from their labours;
and their works do follow them.
[14] And I looked, and behold a
white cloud, and upon the cloud
one sat like unto the Son of
man, having on his head a
golden crown, and in his hand a
sharp sickle.
[15] And another angel came
out of the temple, crying with a
loud voice to him that sat on
the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle,
and reap: for the time is come
for thee to reap; for the harvest
of the earth is ripe.
[16] And he that sat on the
cloud thrust in his sickle on the
earth; and the earth was
reaped.
[17] And another angel came
out of the temple which is in
heaven, he also having a sharp
sickle.
[18] And another angel came
out from the altar, which had
power over fire; and cried with a
loud cry to him that had the
sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in
thy sharp sickle, and gather the
clusters of the vine of the earth;
for her grapes are fully ripe.
[19] And the angel thrust in his
sickle into the earth, and
gathered the vine of the earth,
and cast it into the great
winepress of the wrath of God.
[20] And the winepress was
trodden without the city, and
blood came out of the
winepress, even unto the horse
bridles, by the space of a
thousand and six hundred
furlongs.


Rev.15

[1] And I saw another sign in
heaven, great and marvellous,
seven angels having the seven
last plagues; for in them is
filled up the wrath of God.
[2] And I saw as it were a sea of
glass mingled with fire: and
them that had gotten the
victory over the beast, and over
his image, and over his mark,
and over the number of his
name, stand on the sea of glass,
having the harps of God.
[3] And they sing the song of
Moses the servant of God, and
the song of the Lamb, saying,
Great and marvellous are thy
works, Lord God Almighty; just
and true are thy ways, thou
King of saints.
[4] Who shall not fear thee, O
Lord, and glorify thy name? for
thou only art holy: for all
nations shall come and worship
before thee; for thy judgments
are made manifest.
[5] And after that I looked, and,
behold, the temple of the
tabernacle of the testimony in
heaven was opened:
[6] And the seven angels came
out of the temple, having the
seven plagues, clothed in pure
and white linen, and having
their breasts girded with
golden girdles.
[7] And one of the four beasts
gave unto the seven angels
seven golden vials full of the
wrath of God, who liveth for
ever and ever.
[8] And the temple was filled
with smoke from the glory of
God, and from his power; and
no man was able to enter into
the temple, till the seven
plagues of the seven angels
were fulfilled.


Rev.16

[1] And I heard a great voice
out of the temple saying to the
seven angels, Go your ways,
and pour out the vials of the
wrath of God upon the earth.
[2] And the first went, and
poured out his vial upon the
earth; and there fell a noisome
and grievous sore upon the men
which had the mark of the
beast, and upon them which
worshipped his image.
[3] And the second angel
poured out his vial upon the
sea; and it became as the blood
of a dead man: and every living
soul died in the sea.
[4] And the third angel poured
out his vial upon the rivers and
fountains of waters; and they
became blood.
[5] And I heard the angel of the
waters say, Thou art righteous,
O Lord, which art, and wast,
and shalt be, because thou hast
judged thus.
[6] For they have shed the
blood of saints and prophets,
and thou hast given them blood
to drink; for they are worthy.
[7] And I heard another out of
the altar say, Even so, Lord
God Almighty, true and
righteous are thy judgments.
[8] And the fourth angel poured
out his vial upon the sun; and
power was given unto him to
scorch men with fire.
[9] And men were scorched
with great heat, and
blasphemed the name of God,
which hath power over these
plagues: and they repented not
to give him glory.
[10] And the fifth angel poured
out his vial upon the seat of the
beast; and his kingdom was full
of darkness; and they gnawed
their tongues for pain,
[11] And blasphemed the God
of heaven because of their pains
and their sores, and repented
not of their deeds.
[12] And the sixth angel poured
out his vial upon the great river
Euphrates; and the water
thereof was dried up, that the
way of the kings of the east
might be prepared.
[13] And I saw three unclean
spirits like frogs come out of the
mouth of the dragon, and out of
the mouth of the beast, and out
of the mouth of the false
prophet.
[14] For they are the spirits of
devils, working miracles, which
go forth unto the kings of the
earth and of the whole world, to
gather them to the battle of
that great day of God
Almighty.
[15] Behold, I come as a thief.
Blessed is he that watcheth,
and keepeth his garments, lest
he walk naked, and they see his
shame.
[16] And he gathered them
together into a place called in
the Hebrew tongue
Armageddon.
[17] And the seventh angel
poured out his vial into the air;
and there came a great
