GEN

 

GEN 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

GEN 1:2 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.

GEN 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

GEN 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light
from the darkness.

GEN 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And
the evening and the morning were the first day.

GEN 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and
let it divide the waters from the waters.

GEN 1:7 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.

GEN 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning
were the second day.

GEN 1:9 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.

GEN 1:10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the
waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

GEN 1:11 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.

GEN 1:12 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.

GEN 1:13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

GEN 1:14 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:

GEN 1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give
light upon the earth: and it was so.

GEN 1:16 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.

GEN 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon
the earth,

GEN 1:18 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.

GEN 1:19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

GEN 1:20 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.

GEN 1:21 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.

GEN 1:22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the
waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

GEN 1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

GEN 1:24 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.

GEN 1:25 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.

GEN 1:26 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.

GEN 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he
him; male and female created he them.

GEN 1:28 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.

GEN 1:29 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.

GEN 1:30 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.

GEN 1:31 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.

GEN 2:2 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.

GEN 2:3 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.

GEN 2:4 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,

GEN 2:5 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.

GEN 2:6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face
of the ground.

GEN 2:7 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.

GEN 2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put
the man whom he had formed.

GEN 2:9 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.

GEN 2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it
was parted, and became into four heads.

GEN 2:11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole
land of Havilah, where there is gold;

GEN 2:12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx
stone.

GEN 2:13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that
compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

GEN 2:14 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.

GEN 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to
dress it and to keep it.

GEN 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the
garden thou mayest freely eat:

GEN 2:17 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.

GEN 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I
will make him an help meet for him.

GEN 2:19 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.

GEN 2:20 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.

GEN 2:21 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;

GEN 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a
woman, and brought her unto the man.

GEN 2:23 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.

GEN 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall
cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

GEN 2:25 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?

GEN 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the
trees of the garden:

GEN 3:3 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.

GEN 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

GEN 3:5 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.

GEN 3:6 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.

GEN 3:7 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.

GEN 3:8 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.

GEN 3:9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

GEN 3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid,
because I was naked; and I hid myself.

GEN 3:11 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?

GEN 3:12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave
me of the tree, and I did eat.

GEN 3:13 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.

GEN 3:14 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:

GEN 3:15 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.

GEN 3:16 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.

GEN 3:17 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;

GEN 3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt
eat the herb of the field;

GEN 3:19 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.

GEN 3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of
all living.

GEN 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins,
and clothed them.

GEN 3:22 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:

GEN 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to
till the ground from whence he was taken.

GEN 3:24 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.

GEN 4:2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep,
but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

GEN 4:3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit
of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

GEN 4:4 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:

GEN 4:5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was
very wroth, and his countenance fell.

GEN 4:6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy
countenance fallen?

GEN 4:7 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.

GEN 4:8 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.

GEN 4:9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I
know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

GEN 4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood
crieth unto me from the ground.

GEN 4:11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth
to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;

GEN 4:12 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.

GEN 4:13 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can
bear.

GEN 4:14 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.

GEN 4:15 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.

GEN 4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the
land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

GEN 4:17 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.

GEN 4:18 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael
begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.

GEN 4:19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and
the name of the other Zillah.

GEN 4:20 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and
of such as have cattle.

GEN 4:21 And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as
handle the harp and organ.

GEN 4:22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer
in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.

GEN 4:23 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.

GEN 4:24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and
sevenfold.

GEN 4:25 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.

GEN 4:26 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;

GEN 5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their
name Adam, in the day when they were created.

GEN 5:3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own
likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:

GEN 5:4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred
years: and he begat sons and daughters:

GEN 5:5 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years:
and he died.

GEN 5:6 And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:

GEN 5:7 And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and
begat sons and daughters:

GEN 5:8 And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he
died.

GEN 5:9 And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:

GEN 5:10 And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years,
and begat sons and daughters:

GEN 5:11 And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he
died.

GEN 5:12 And Cainan lived seventy years and begat Mahalaleel:

GEN 5:13 And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty
years, and begat sons and daughters:

GEN 5:14 And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he
died.

GEN 5:15 And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:

GEN 5:16 And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty
years, and begat sons and daughters:

GEN 5:17 And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five
years: and he died.

GEN 5:18 And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:

GEN 5:19 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat
sons and daughters:

GEN 5:20 And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and
he died.

GEN 5:21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

GEN 5:22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred
years, and begat sons and daughters:

GEN 5:23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

GEN 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

GEN 5:25 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat
Lamech.

GEN 5:26 And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and
two years, and begat sons and daughters:

GEN 5:27 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine
years: and he died.

GEN 5:28 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:

GEN 5:29 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.

GEN 5:30 And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five
years, and begat sons and daughters:

GEN 5:31 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven
years: and he died.

GEN 5:32 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,

GEN 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and
they took them wives of all which they chose.

GEN 6:3 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.

GEN 6:4 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.

GEN 6:5 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.

GEN 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it
grieved him at his heart.

GEN 6:7 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.

GEN 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

GEN 6:9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in
his generations, and Noah walked with God.

GEN 6:10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

GEN 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with
violence.

GEN 6:12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all
flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

GEN 6:13 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.

GEN 6:14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the
ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

GEN 6:15 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.

GEN 6:16 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.

GEN 6:17 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.

GEN 6:18 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.

GEN 6:19 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.

GEN 6:20 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.

GEN 6:21 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.

GEN 6:22 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.

GEN 7:2 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.

GEN 7:3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep
seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

GEN 7:4 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.

GEN 7:5 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.

GEN 7:6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon
the earth.

GEN 7:7 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.

GEN 7:8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and
of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,

GEN 7:9 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the
female, as God had commanded Noah.

GEN 7:10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood
were upon the earth.

GEN 7:11 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.

GEN 7:12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

GEN 7:13 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;

GEN 7:14 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.

GEN 7:15 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh,
wherein is the breath of life.

GEN 7:16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God
had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

GEN 7:17 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.

GEN 7:18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth;
and the ark went upon the face of the waters.

GEN 7:19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high
hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.

GEN 7:20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were
covered.

GEN 7:21 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:

GEN 7:22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the
dry land, died.

GEN 7:23 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.

GEN 7:24 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;

GEN 8:2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were
stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

GEN 8:3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the
end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

GEN 8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the
month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

GEN 8:5 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.

GEN 8:6 And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the
window of the ark which he had made:

GEN 8:7 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the
waters were dried up from off the earth.

GEN 8:8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated
from off the face of the ground;

GEN 8:9 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.

GEN 8:10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove
out of the ark;

GEN 8:11 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.

GEN 8:12 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which
returned not again unto him any more.

GEN 8:13 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.

GEN 8:14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month,
was the earth dried.

GEN 8:15 And God spake unto Noah, saying,

GEN 8:16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons'
wives with thee.

GEN 8:17 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.

GEN 8:18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives
with him:

GEN 8:19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever
creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.

GEN 8:20 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.

GEN 8:21 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.

GEN 8:22 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.

GEN 9:2 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.

GEN 9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the
green herb have I given you all things.

GEN 9:4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye
not eat.

GEN 9:5 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.

GEN 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the
image of God made he man.

GEN 9:7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the
earth, and multiply therein.

GEN 9:8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

GEN 9:9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed
after you;

GEN 9:10 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.

GEN 9:11 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.

GEN 9:12 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:

GEN 9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a
covenant between me and the earth.

GEN 9:14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that
the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

GEN 9:15 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.

GEN 9:16 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.

GEN 9:17 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.

GEN 9:18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and
Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.

GEN 9:19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth
overspread.

GEN 9:20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:

GEN 9:21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered
within his tent.

GEN 9:22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and
told his two brethren without.

GEN 9:23 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.

GEN 9:24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done
unto him.

GEN 9:25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto
his brethren.

GEN 9:26 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his
servant.

GEN 9:27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem;
and Canaan shall be his servant.

GEN 9:28 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.

GEN 9:29 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.

GEN 10:2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and
Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

GEN 10:3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

GEN 10:4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

GEN 10:5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every
one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

GEN 10:6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

GEN 10:7 And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and
Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.

GEN 10:8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.

GEN 10:9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as
Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.

GEN 10:10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and
Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

GEN 10:11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the
city Rehoboth, and Calah,

GEN 10:12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.

GEN 10:13 And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,

GEN 10:14 And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and
Caphtorim.

GEN 10:15 And Canaan begat Sidon his first born, and Heth,

GEN 10:16 And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,

GEN 10:17 And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,

GEN 10:18 And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward
were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.

GEN 10:19 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.

GEN 10:20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their
tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.

GEN 10:21 Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother
of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.

GEN 10:22 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and
Aram.

GEN 10:23 And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

GEN 10:24 And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.

GEN 10:25 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.

GEN 10:26 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,

GEN 10:27 And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,

GEN 10:28 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,

GEN 10:29 And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of
Joktan.

GEN 10:30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount
of the east.

GEN 10:31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their
tongues, in their lands, after their nations.

GEN 10:32 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.

GEN 11:2 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.

GEN 11:3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them
thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.

GEN 11:4 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.

GEN 11:5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the
children of men builded.

GEN 11:6 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.

GEN 11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they
may not understand one another's speech.

GEN 11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all
the earth: and they left off to build the city.

GEN 11:9 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.

GEN 11:10 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years
old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:

GEN 11:11 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat
sons and daughters.

GEN 11:12 And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:

GEN 11:13 And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three
years, and begat sons and daughters.

GEN 11:14 And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:

GEN 11:15 And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years,
and begat sons and daughters.

GEN 11:16 And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:

GEN 11:17 And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years,
and begat sons and daughters.

GEN 11:18 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:

GEN 11:19 And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and
begat sons and daughters.

GEN 11:20 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:

GEN 11:21 And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and
begat sons and daughters.

GEN 11:22 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:

GEN 11:23 And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat
sons and daughters.

GEN 11:24 And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:

GEN 11:25 And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen years,
and begat sons and daughters.

GEN 11:26 And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

GEN 11:27 Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram,
Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.

GEN 11:28 And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity,
in Ur of the Chaldees.

GEN 11:29 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.

GEN 11:30 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.

GEN 11:31 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.

GEN 11:32 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:

GEN 12:2 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:

GEN 12:3 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.

GEN 12:4 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.

GEN 12:5 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.

GEN 12:6 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the
plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

GEN 12:7 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.

GEN 12:8 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.

GEN 12:9 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.

GEN 12:10 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.

GEN 12:11 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:

GEN 12:12 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.

GEN 12:13 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.

GEN 12:14 And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the
Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.

GEN 12:15 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before
Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.

GEN 12:16 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.

GEN 12:17 And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues
because of Sarai Abram's wife.

GEN 12:18 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?

GEN 12:19 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.

GEN 12:20 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.

GEN 13:2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

GEN 13:3 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;

GEN 13:4 Unto the place of the altar, which he had make there at the first:
and there Abram called on the name of the LORD.

GEN 13:5 And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and
tents.

GEN 13:6 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.

GEN 13:7 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.

GEN 13:8 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.

GEN 13:9 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.

GEN 13:10 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.

GEN 13:11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east:
and they separated themselves the one from the other.

GEN 13:12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities
of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.

GEN 13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD
exceedingly.

GEN 13:14 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:

GEN 13:15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to
thy seed for ever.

GEN 13:16 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.

GEN 13:17 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth
of it; for I will give it unto thee.

GEN 13:18 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;

GEN 14:2 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.

GEN 14:3 All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the
salt sea.

GEN 14:4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year
they rebelled.

GEN 14:5 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 Emins in Shaveh Kiriathaim,

GEN 14:6 And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto Elparan, which is by the
wilderness.

GEN 14:7 And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote
all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in
Hazezontamar.

GEN 14:8 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;

GEN 14:9 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.

GEN 14:10 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.

GEN 14:11 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their
victuals, and went their way.

GEN 14:12 And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and
his goods, and departed.

GEN 14:13 And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for
he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of
Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.

GEN 14:14 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.

GEN 14:15 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.

GEN 14:16 And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his
brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.

GEN 14:17 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.

GEN 14:18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he
was the priest of the most high God.

GEN 14:19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God,
possessor of heaven and earth:

GEN 14:20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies
into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

GEN 14:21 And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take
the goods to thyself.

GEN 14:22 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,

GEN 14:23 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:

GEN 14:24 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.

GEN 15:2 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?

GEN 15:3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one
born in my house is mine heir.

GEN 15:4 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.

GEN 15:5 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.

GEN 15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for
righteousness.

GEN 15:7 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.

GEN 15:8 And he said, LORD God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?

GEN 15:9 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.

GEN 15:10 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.

GEN 15:11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them
away.

GEN 15:12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and,
lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.

GEN 15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a
stranger in a land that is not their's, and shall serve them; and they shall
afflict them four hundred years;

GEN 15:14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and
afterward shall they come out with great substance.

GEN 15:15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a
good old age.

GEN 15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the
iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.

GEN 15:17 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.

GEN 15:18 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:

GEN 15:19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,

GEN 15:20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,

GEN 15:21 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.

GEN 16:2 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.

GEN 16:3 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.

GEN 16:4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that
she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.

GEN 16:5 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.

GEN 16:6 But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thine hand; do to
her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from
her face.

GEN 16:7 And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the
wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.

GEN 16:8 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.

GEN 16:9 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and
submit thyself under her hands.

GEN 16:10 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy seed
exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.

GEN 16:11 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.

GEN 16:12 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.

GEN 16:13 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?

GEN 16:14 Wherefore the well was called Beerlahairoi; behold, it is between
Kadesh and Bered.

GEN 16:15 And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son's name, which
Hagar bare, Ishmael.

GEN 16:16 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.

GEN 17:2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply
thee exceedingly.

GEN 17:3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,

GEN 17:4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a
father of many nations.

GEN 17:5 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.

GEN 17:6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations
of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.

GEN 17:7 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.

GEN 17:8 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.

GEN 17:9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore,
thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.

GEN 17:10 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.

GEN 17:11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be
a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.

GEN 17:12 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.

GEN 17:13 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.

GEN 17:14 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.

GEN 17:15 And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not
call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.

GEN 17:16 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.

GEN 17:17 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?

GEN 17:18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!

GEN 17:19 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.

GEN 17:20 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.

GEN 17:21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear
unto thee at this set time in the next year.

GEN 17:22 And he left off talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.

GEN 17:23 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.

GEN 17:24 And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised
in the flesh of his foreskin.

GEN 17:25 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised
in the flesh of his foreskin.

GEN 17:26 In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son.

GEN 17:27 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;

GEN 18:2 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,

GEN 18:3 And said, My LORD, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not
away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

GEN 18:4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and
rest yourselves under the tree:

GEN 18:5 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.

GEN 18:6 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.

GEN 18:7 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.

GEN 18:8 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.

GEN 18:9 And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold,
in the tent.

GEN 18:10 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.

GEN 18:11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it
ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

GEN 18:12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old
shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?

GEN 18:13 And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying,
Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?

GEN 18:14 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will
return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

GEN 18:15 Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he
said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.

GEN 18:16 And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and
Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.

GEN 18:17 And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;

GEN 18:18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty
nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

GEN 18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household
after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and
judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of
him.

GEN 18:20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is
great, and because their sin is very grievous;

GEN 18:21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether
according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.

GEN 18:22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom:
but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.

GEN 18:23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the
righteous with the wicked?

GEN 18:24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou
also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are
therein?

GEN 18:25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous
with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far
from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

GEN 18:26 And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the
city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.

GEN 18:27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to
speak unto the LORD, which am but dust and ashes:

GEN 18:28 Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou
destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and
five, I will not destroy it.

GEN 18:29 And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall
be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's sake.

GEN 18:30 And he said unto him, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will
speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will
not do it, if I find thirty there.

GEN 18:31 And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the
LORD: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not
destroy it for twenty's sake.

GEN 18:32 And he said, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak yet but
this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not
destroy it for ten's sake.

GEN 18:33 And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with
Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

GEN 19:1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate
of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with
his face toward the ground;

GEN 19:2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your
servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise
up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the
street all night.

GEN 19:3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and
entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened
bread, and they did eat.

GEN 19:4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom,
compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every
quarter:

GEN 19:5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which
came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

GEN 19:6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,

GEN 19:7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.

GEN 19:8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I
pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes:
only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of
my roof.

GEN 19:9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came
in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with
thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came
near to break the door.

GEN 19:10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house
to them, and shut to the door.

GEN 19:11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with
blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the
door.

GEN 19:12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in
law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city,
bring them out of this place:

GEN 19:13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen
great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.

GEN 19:14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his
daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy
this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

GEN 19:15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying,
Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be
consumed in the iniquity of the city.

GEN 19:16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the
hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being
merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

GEN 19:17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that
he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all
the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

GEN 19:18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my LORD:

GEN 19:19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast
magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I
cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:

GEN 19:20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one:
Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.

GEN 19:21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this
thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast
spoken.

GEN 19:22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be
come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

GEN 19:23 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.

GEN 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire
from the LORD out of heaven;

GEN 19:25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the
inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

GEN 19:26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of
salt.

GEN 19:27 And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood
before the LORD:

GEN 19:28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land
of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the
smoke of a furnace.

GEN 19:29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain,
that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow,
when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.

GEN 19:30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two
daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave,
he and his two daughters.

GEN 19:31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and
there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all
the earth:

GEN 19:32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him,
that we may preserve seed of our father.

GEN 19:33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn
went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor
when she arose.

GEN 19:34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the
younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine
this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed
of our father.

GEN 19:35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the
younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor
when she arose.

GEN 19:36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

GEN 19:37 And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is
the father of the Moabites unto this day.

GEN 19:38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi:
the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

GEN 20:1 And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country, and
dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar.

GEN 20:2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech
king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.

GEN 20:3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him,
Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she
is a man's wife.

GEN 20:4 But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, LORD, wilt thou
slay also a righteous nation?

GEN 20:5 Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself
said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my
hands have I done this.

GEN 20:6 And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this
in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against
me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.

GEN 20:7 Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he
shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know
thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.

GEN 20:8 Therefore Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his
servants, and told all these things in their ears: and the men were sore
afraid.

GEN 20:9 Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What hast thou done
unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou hast brought on me and on
my kingdom a great sin? thou hast done deeds unto me that ought not to be
done.

GEN 20:10 And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou hast
done this thing?

GEN 20:11 And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not
in this place; and they will slay me for my wife's sake.

GEN 20:12 And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father,
but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.

GEN 20:13 And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's
house, that I said unto her, This is thy kindness which thou shalt shew unto
me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me, He is my brother.

GEN 20:14 And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and
womenservants, and gave them unto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife.

GEN 20:15 And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before thee: dwell where it
pleaseth thee.

GEN 20:16 And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand
pieces of silver: behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes, unto all that
are with thee, and with all other: thus she was reproved.

GEN 20:17 So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his
wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.

GEN 20:18 For the LORD had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of
Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.

GEN 21:1 And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto
Sarah as he had spoken.

GEN 21:2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the
set time of which God had spoken to him.

GEN 21:3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom
Sarah bare to him, Isaac.

GEN 21:4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God
had commanded him.

GEN 21:5 And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born
unto him.

GEN 21:6 And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will
laugh with me.

GEN 21:7 And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should
have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age.

GEN 21:8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast
the same day that Isaac was weaned.

GEN 21:9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto
Abraham, mocking.

GEN 21:10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her
son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with
Isaac.

GEN 21:11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his
son.

GEN 21:12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight
because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said
unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.

GEN 21:13 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because
he is thy seed.

GEN 21:14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a
bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the
child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of
Beersheba.

GEN 21:15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under
one of the shrubs.

GEN 21:16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as
it were a bow shot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And
she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.

GEN 21:17 And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to
Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not;
for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.

GEN 21:18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make
him a great nation.

GEN 21:19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she
went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.

GEN 21:20 And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the
wilderness, and became an archer.

GEN 21:21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a
wife out of the land of Egypt.

GEN 21:22 And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phichol the
chief captain of his host spake unto Abraham, saying, God is with thee in all
that thou doest:

GEN 21:23 Now therefore swear unto me here by God that thou wilt not deal
falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son's son: but according to the
kindness that I have done unto thee, thou shalt do unto me, and to the land
wherein thou hast sojourned.

GEN 21:24 And Abraham said, I will swear.

GEN 21:25 And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which
Abimelech's servants had violently taken away.

GEN 21:26 And Abimelech said, I wot not who hath done this thing; neither
didst thou tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but to day.

GEN 21:27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them unto Abimelech; and
both of them made a covenant.

GEN 21:28 And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.

GEN 21:29 And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs
which thou hast set by themselves?

GEN 21:30 And he said, For these seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my hand,
that they may be a witness unto me, that I have digged this well.

GEN 21:31 Wherefore he called that place Beersheba; because there they sware
both of them.

GEN 21:32 Thus they made a covenant at Beersheba: then Abimelech rose up, and
Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the
Philistines.

GEN 21:33 And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba, and called there on the
name of the LORD, the everlasting God.

GEN 21:34 And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines' land many days.

GEN 22:1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt
Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

GEN 22:2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou
lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt
offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

GEN 22:3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and
took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for
the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had
told him.

GEN 22:4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place
afar off.

GEN 22:5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and
I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.

GEN 22:6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon
Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went
both of them together.

GEN 22:7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he
said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where
is the lamb for a burnt offering?

GEN 22:8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt
offering: so they went both of them together.

GEN 22:9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham
built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his
son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.

GEN 22:10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his
son.

GEN 22:11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said,
Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.

GEN 22:12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any
thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not
withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

GEN 22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a
ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and
offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

GEN 22:14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is
said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.

GEN 22:15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the
second time,

GEN 22:16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou
hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

GEN 22:17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will
multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon
the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

GEN 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
because thou hast obeyed my voice.

GEN 22:19 So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went
together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.

GEN 22:20 And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham,
saying, Behold, Milcah, she hath also born children unto thy brother Nahor;

GEN 22:21 Huz his firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of
Aram,

GEN 22:22 And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.

GEN 22:23 And Bethuel begat Rebekah: these eight Milcah did bear to Nahor,
Abraham's brother.

GEN 22:24 And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she bare also Tebah, and
Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.

GEN 23:1 And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: these were
the years of the life of Sarah.

GEN 23:2 And Sarah died in Kirjatharba; the same is Hebron in the land of
Canaan: and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.

GEN 23:3 And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the sons of
Heth, saying,

GEN 23:4 I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a possession of a
buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.

GEN 23:5 And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him,

GEN 23:6 Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty prince among us: in the choice of
our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his
sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.

GEN 23:7 And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land,
even to the children of Heth.

GEN 23:8 And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind that I should
bury my dead out of my sight; hear me, and intreat for me to Ephron the son
of Zohar,

GEN 23:9 That he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath, which is
in the end of his field; for as much money as it is worth he shall give it me
for a possession of a buryingplace amongst you.

GEN 23:10 And Ephron dwelt among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite
answered Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, even of all that
went in at the gate of his city, saying,

GEN 23:11 Nay, my lord, hear me: the field give I thee, and the cave that is
therein, I give it thee; in the presence of the sons of my people give I it
thee: bury thy dead.

GEN 23:12 And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land.

GEN 23:13 And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the land,
saying, But if thou wilt give it, I pray thee, hear me: I will give thee
money for the field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead there.

GEN 23:14 And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him,

GEN 23:15 My lord, hearken unto me: the land is worth four hundred shekels of
silver; what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead.

GEN 23:16 And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the
silver, which he had named in the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred
shekels of silver, current money with the merchant.

GEN 23:17 And the field of Ephron which was in Machpelah, which was before
Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the trees that were
in the field, that were in all the borders round about, were made sure

GEN 23:18 Unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of
Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city.

GEN 23:19 And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the
field of Machpelah before Mamre: the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan.

GEN 23:20 And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure unto
Abraham for a possession of a buryingplace by the sons of Heth.

GEN 24:1 And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had
blessed Abraham in all things.

GEN 24:2 And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled
over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:

GEN 24:3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the
God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the
daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:

GEN 24:4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife
unto my son Isaac.

GEN 24:5 And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman will not be
willing to follow me unto this land: must I needs bring thy son again unto
the land from whence thou camest?

GEN 24:6 And Abraham said unto him, Beware thou that thou bring not my son
thither again.

GEN 24:7 The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father's house, and
from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me,
saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before
thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.

GEN 24:8 And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt
be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again.

GEN 24:9 And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his
master, and sware to him concerning that matter.

GEN 24:10 And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master, and
departed; for all the goods of his master were in his hand: and he arose, and
went to Mesopotamia, unto the city of Nahor.

GEN 24:11 And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of
water at the time of the evening, even the time that women go out to draw
water.

GEN 24:12 And he said O LORD God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send me
good speed this day, and shew kindness unto my master Abraham.

GEN 24:13 Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of the
men of the city come out to draw water:

GEN 24:14 And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let
down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say,
Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she that thou
hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that thou hast
shewed kindness unto my master.

GEN 24:15 And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold,
Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor,
Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder.

GEN 24:16 And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any
man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and
came up.

GEN 24:17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee,
drink a little water of thy pitcher.

GEN 24:18 And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hasted, and let down her
pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.

GEN 24:19 And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw water
for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.

GEN 24:20 And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran
again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels.

GEN 24:21 And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit whether the LORD
had made his journey prosperous or not.

GEN 24:22 And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man
took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her
hands of ten shekels weight of gold;

GEN 24:23 And said, Whose daughter art thou? tell me, I pray thee: is there
room in thy father's house for us to lodge in?

GEN 24:24 And she said unto him, I am the daughter of Bethuel the son of
Milcah, which she bare unto Nahor.

GEN 24:25 She said moreover unto him, We have both straw and provender
enough, and room to lodge in.

GEN 24:26 And the man bowed down his head, and worshipped the LORD.

GEN 24:27 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who hath
not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in the
way, the LORD led me to the house of my master's brethren.

GEN 24:28 And the damsel ran, and told them of her mother's house these
things.

GEN 24:29 And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban: and Laban ran out
unto the man, unto the well.

GEN 24:30 And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets upon his
sister's hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying,
Thus spake the man unto me; that he came unto the man; and, behold, he stood
by the camels at the well.

GEN 24:31 And he said, Come in, thou blessed of the LORD; wherefore standest
thou without? for I have prepared the house, and room for the camels.

GEN 24:32 And the man came into the house: and he ungirded his camels, and
gave straw and provender for the camels, and water to wash his feet, and the
men's feet that were with him.

GEN 24:33 And there was set meat before him to eat: but he said, I will not
eat, until I have told mine errand. And he said, Speak on.

GEN 24:34 And he said, I am Abraham's servant.

GEN 24:35 And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great:
and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and
menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.

GEN 24:36 And Sarah my master's wife bare a son to my master when she was old:
and unto him hath he given all that he hath.

GEN 24:37 And my master made me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife to
my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell:

GEN 24:38 But thou shalt go unto my father's house, and to my kindred, and
take a wife unto my son.

GEN 24:39 And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not follow
me.

GEN 24:40 And he said unto me, The LORD, before whom I walk, will send his
angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son
of my kindred, and of my father's house:

GEN 24:41 Then shalt thou be clear from this my oath, when thou comest to my
kindred; and if they give not thee one, thou shalt be clear from my oath.

GEN 24:42 And I came this day unto the well, and said, O LORD God of my master
Abraham, if now thou do prosper my way which I go:

GEN 24:43 Behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass,
that when the virgin cometh forth to draw water, and I say to her, Give me, I
pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher to drink;

GEN 24:44 And she say to me, Both drink thou, and I will also draw for thy
camels: let the same be the woman whom the LORD hath appointed out for my
master's son.

GEN 24:45 And before I had done speaking in mine heart, behold, Rebekah came
forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down unto the well, and
drew water: and I said unto her, Let me drink, I pray thee.

GEN 24:46 And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her shoulder, and
said, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: so I drank, and she made
the camels drink also.

GEN 24:47 And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter art thou? And she
said, the daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bare unto him: and I
put the earring upon her face, and the bracelets upon her hands.

GEN 24:48 And I bowed down my head, and worshipped the LORD, and blessed the
LORD God of my master Abraham, which had led me in the right way to take my
master's brother's daughter unto his son.

GEN 24:49 And now if ye will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me:
and if not, tell me; that I may turn to the right hand, or to the left.

GEN 24:50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing proceedeth from
the LORD: we cannot speak unto thee bad or good.

GEN 24:51 Behold, Rebekah is before thee, take her, and go, and let her be thy
master's son's wife, as the LORD hath spoken.

GEN 24:52 And it came to pass, that, when Abraham's servant heard their words,
he worshipped the LORD, bowing himself to the earth.

GEN 24:53 And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of
gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother and
to her mother precious things.

GEN 24:54 And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were with him, and
tarried all night; and they rose up in the morning, and he said, Send me away
unto my master.

GEN 24:55 And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide with us a
few days, at the least ten; after that she shall go.

GEN 24:56 And he said unto them, Hinder me not, seeing the LORD hath prospered
my way; send me away that I may go to my master.

GEN 24:57 And they said, We will call the damsel, and enquire at her mouth.

GEN 24:58 And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this
man? And she said, I will go.

GEN 24:59 And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and
Abraham's servant, and his men.

GEN 24:60 And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be
thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate
of those which hate them.

GEN 24:61 And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the camels,
and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and went his way.

GEN 24:62 And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahairoi; for he dwelt
in the south country.

GEN 24:63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he
lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.

GEN 24:64 And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she lighted
off the camel.

GEN 24:65 For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh
in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore
she took a vail, and covered herself.

GEN 24:66 And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.

GEN 24:67 And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took
Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted
after his mother's death.

GEN 25:1 Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.

GEN 25:2 And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and
Ishbak, and Shuah.

GEN 25:3 And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were
Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.

GEN 25:4 And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abidah, and
Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.

GEN 25:5 And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.

GEN 25:6 But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave
gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward,
unto the east country.

GEN 25:7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived,
an hundred threescore and fifteen years.

GEN 25:8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old
man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.

GEN 25:9 And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah,
in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;

GEN 25:10 The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: there was
Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.

GEN 25:11 And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his
son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahairoi.

GEN 25:12 Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar
the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:

GEN 25:13 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names,
according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and
Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,

GEN 25:14 And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,

GEN 25:15 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:

GEN 25:16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their
towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations.

GEN 25:17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and
thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered
unto his people.

GEN 25:18 And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou
goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his brethren.

GEN 25:19 And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham begat
Isaac:

GEN 25:20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the
daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.

GEN 25:21 And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren:
and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

GEN 25:22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it
be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD.

GEN 25:23 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two
manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall
be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

GEN 25:24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were
twins in her womb.

GEN 25:25 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they
called his name Esau.

GEN 25:26 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on
Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years
old when she bare them.

GEN 25:27 And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the
field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.

GEN 25:28 And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah
loved Jacob.

GEN 25:29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was
faint:

GEN 25:30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red
pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.

GEN 25:31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.

GEN 25:32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit
shall this birthright do to me?

GEN 25:33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he
sold his birthright unto Jacob.

GEN 25:34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat
and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

GEN 26:1 And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was
in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines
unto Gerar.

GEN 26:2 And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt;
dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:

GEN 26:3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee;
for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will
perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;

GEN 26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will
give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations
of the earth be blessed;

GEN 26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my
commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

GEN 26:6 And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:

GEN 26:7 And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is
my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men
of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon.

GEN 26:8 And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that
Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and,
behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.

GEN 26:9 And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy
wife; and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because
I said, Lest I die for her.

GEN 26:10 And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the
people might lightly have lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest have brought
guiltiness upon us.

GEN 26:11 And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this
man or his wife shall surely be put to death.

GEN 26:12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an
hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.

GEN 26:13 And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became
very great:

GEN 26:14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great
store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.

GEN 26:15 For all the wells which his father's servants had digged in the days
of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with
earth.

GEN 26:16 And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much
mightier than we.

GEN 26:17 And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of
Gerar, and dwelt there.

GEN 26:18 And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged
in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after
the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his
father had called them.

GEN 26:19 And Isaac's servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of
springing water.

GEN 26:20 And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdmen, saying,
The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they
strove with him.

GEN 26:21 And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he
called the name of it Sitnah.

GEN 26:22 And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that
they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now
the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.

GEN 26:23 And he went up from thence to Beersheba.

GEN 26:24 And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the
God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless
thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake.

GEN 26:25 And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the
LORD, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac's servants digged a well.

GEN 26:26 Then Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his
friends, and Phichol the chief captain of his army.

GEN 26:27 And Isaac said unto them, Wherefore come ye to me, seeing ye hate
me, and have sent me away from you?

GEN 26:28 And they said, We saw certainly that the LORD was with thee: and we
said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and thee, and let
us make a covenant with thee;

GEN 26:29 That thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we
have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in peace: thou
art now the blessed of the LORD.

GEN 26:30 And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.

GEN 26:31 And they rose up betimes in the morning, and sware one to another:
and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace.

GEN 26:32 And it came to pass the same day, that Isaac's servants came, and
told him concerning the well which they had digged, and said unto him, We
have found water.

GEN 26:33 And he called it Shebah: therefore the name of the city is Beersheba
unto this day.

GEN 26:34 And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the
daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the
Hittite:

GEN 26:35 Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.

GEN 27:1 And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim,
so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him,
My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I.

GEN 27:2 And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death:

GEN 27:3 Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy
bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison;

GEN 27:4 And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I
may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die.

GEN 27:5 And Rebekah heard when Isaac spake to Esau his son. And Esau went
to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.

GEN 27:6 And Rebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard thy
father speak unto Esau thy brother, saying,

GEN 27:7 Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless
thee before the LORD before my death.

GEN 27:8 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I
command thee.

GEN 27:9 Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids of the
goats; and I will make them savoury meat for thy father, such as he loveth:

GEN 27:10 And thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, and that he
may bless thee before his death.

GEN 27:11 And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a
hairy man, and I am a smooth man:

GEN 27:12 My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a
deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing.

GEN 27:13 And his mother said unto him, Upon me be thy curse, my son: only
obey my voice, and go fetch me them.

GEN 27:14 And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his
mother made savoury meat, such as his father loved.

GEN 27:15 And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which were
with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son:

GEN 27:16 And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and
upon the smooth of his neck:

GEN 27:17 And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had prepared,
into the hand of her son Jacob.

GEN 27:18 And he came unto his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here
am I; who art thou, my son?

GEN 27:19 And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy first born; I have
done according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my
venison, that thy soul may bless me.

GEN 27:20 And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that thou hast found it so
quickly, my son? And he said, Because the LORD thy God brought it to me.

GEN 27:21 And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may feel
thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not.

GEN 27:22 And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and
said, The voice is Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.

GEN 27:23 And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as his
brother Esau's hands: so he blessed him.

GEN 27:24 And he said, Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am.

GEN 27:25 And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son's
venison, that my soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and he
did eat: and he brought him wine and he drank.

GEN 27:26 And his father Isaac said unto him, Come near now, and kiss me, my
son.

GEN 27:27 And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his
raiment, and blessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son is as the smell
of a field which the LORD hath blessed:

GEN 27:28 Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the
earth, and plenty of corn and wine:

GEN 27:29 Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over
thy brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one
that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.

GEN 27:30 And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing
Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his
father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.

GEN 27:31 And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his
father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son's
venison, that thy soul may bless me.

GEN 27:32 And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am
thy son, thy firstborn Esau.

GEN 27:33 And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that
hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou
camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed.

GEN 27:34 And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great
and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O
my father.

GEN 27:35 And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away thy
blessing.

GEN 27:36 And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted
me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath
taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for
me?

GEN 27:37 And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him thy
lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and with corn
and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son?

GEN 27:38 And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my
father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his
voice, and wept.

GEN 27:39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy
dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from
above;

GEN 27:40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and
it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt
break his yoke from off thy neck.

GEN 27:41 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father
blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father
are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.

GEN 27:42 And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah: and she
sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him, Behold, thy brother
Esau, as touching thee, doth comfort himself, purposing to kill thee.

GEN 27:43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; arise, flee thou to Laban my
brother to Haran;

GEN 27:44 And tarry with him a few days, until thy brother's fury turn away;

GEN 27:45 Until thy brother's anger turn away from thee, and he forget that
which thou hast done to him: then I will send, and fetch thee from thence:
why should I be deprived also of you both in one day?

GEN 27:46 And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of the
daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as
these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me?

GEN 28:1 And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said
unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

GEN 28:2 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father;
and take thee a wife from thence of the daughers of Laban thy mother's
brother.

GEN 28:3 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply
thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;

GEN 28:4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with
thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which
God gave unto Abraham.

GEN 28:5 And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto Laban, son
of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother.

GEN 28:6 When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to
Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave
him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughers of Canaan;

GEN 28:7 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to
Padanaram;

GEN 28:8 And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his
father;

GEN 28:9 Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had
Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be
his wife.

GEN 28:10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

GEN 28:11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night,
because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put
them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

GEN 28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top
of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and
descending on it.

GEN 28:13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of
Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest,
to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

GEN 28:14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt
spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the
south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be
blessed.

GEN 28:15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places
whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not
leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

GEN 28:16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is
in this place; and I knew it not.

GEN 28:17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is
none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

GEN 28:18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he
had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the
top of it.

GEN 28:19 And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that
city was called Luz at the first.

GEN 28:20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep
me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put
on,

GEN 28:21 So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the
LORD be my God:

GEN 28:22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house:
and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

GEN 29:1 Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people
of the east.

GEN 29:2 And he looked, and behold a well in the field, and, lo, there were
three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the
flocks: and a great stone was upon the well's mouth.

GEN 29:3 And thither were all the flocks gathered: and they rolled the stone
from the well's mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone again upon
the well's mouth in his place.

GEN 29:4 And Jacob said unto them, My brethren, whence be ye? And they said,
Of Haran are we.

GEN 29:5 And he said unto them, Know ye Laban the son of Nahor? And they said,
We know him.

GEN 29:6 And he said unto them, Is he well? And they said, He is well: and,
behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep.

GEN 29:7 And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the
cattle should be gathered together: water ye the sheep, and go and feed them.

GEN 29:8 And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered
together, and till they roll the stone from the well's mouth; then we water
the sheep.

GEN 29:9 And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father's
sheep; for she kept them.

GEN 29:10 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his
mother's brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother's brother, that Jacob
went near, and rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the flock
of Laban his mother's brother.

GEN 29:11 And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.

GEN 29:12 And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and that he
was Rebekah's son: and she ran and told her father.

GEN 29:13 And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his
sister's son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed him, and
brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these things.

GEN 29:14 And Laban said to him, Surely thou art my bone and my flesh. And he
abode with him the space of a month.

GEN 29:15 And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest
thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be?

GEN 29:16 And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the
name of the younger was Rachel.

GEN 29:17 Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favoured.

GEN 29:18 And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for
Rachel thy younger daughter.

GEN 29:19 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I
should give her to another man: abide with me.

GEN 29:20 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him
but a few days, for the love he had to her.

GEN 29:21 And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are
fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.

GEN 29:22 And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a
feast.

GEN 29:23 And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his
daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.

GEN 29:24 And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an
handmaid.

GEN 29:25 And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and
he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with
thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?

GEN 29:26 And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the
younger before the firstborn.

GEN 29:27 Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service
which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

GEN 29:28 And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his
daughter to wife also.

GEN 29:29 And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her
maid.

GEN 29:30 And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than
Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.

GEN 29:31 And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but
Rachel was barren.

GEN 29:32 And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben:
for she said, Surely the LORD hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore
my husband will love me.

GEN 29:33 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the LORD
hath heard I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she
called his name Simeon.

GEN 29:34 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time
will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons:
therefore was his name called Levi.

GEN 29:35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I
praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

GEN 30:1 And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied
her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.

GEN 30:2 And Jacob's anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in
God's stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

GEN 30:3 And she said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in unto her; and she shall
bear upon my knees, that I may also have children by her.

GEN 30:4 And she gave him Bilhah her handmaid to wife: and Jacob went in unto
her.

GEN 30:5 And Bilhah conceived, and bare Jacob a son.

GEN 30:6 And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my
voice, and hath given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan.

GEN 30:7 And Bilhah Rachel's maid conceived again, and bare Jacob a second
son.

GEN 30:8 And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my
sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali.

GEN 30:9 When Leah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zilpah her
maid, and gave her Jacob to wife.

GEN 30:10 And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a son.

GEN 30:11 And Leah said, A troop cometh: and she called his name Gad.

GEN 30:12 And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a second son.

GEN 30:13 And Leah said, Happy am I, for the daughters will call me blessed:
and she called his name Asher.

GEN 30:14 And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found mandrakes
in the field, and brought them unto his mother Leah. Then Rachel said to
Leah, Give me, I pray thee, of thy son's mandrakes.

GEN 30:15 And she said unto her, Is it a small matter that thou hast taken my
husband? and wouldest thou take away my son's mandrakes also? And Rachel
said, Therefore he shall lie with thee to night for thy son's mandrakes.

GEN 30:16 And Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went out to
meet him, and said, Thou must come in unto me; for surely I have hired thee
with my son's mandrakes. And he lay with her that night.

GEN 30:17 And God hearkened unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare Jacob the
fifth son.

GEN 30:18 And Leah said, God hath given me my hire, because I have given my
maiden to my husband: and she called his name Issachar.

GEN 30:19 And Leah conceived again, and bare Jacob the sixth son.

GEN 30:20 And Leah said, God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will my
husband dwell with me, because I have born him six sons: and she called his
name Zebulun.

GEN 30:21 And afterwards she bare a daughter, and called her name Dinah.

GEN 30:22 And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her
womb.

GEN 30:23 And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my
reproach:

GEN 30:24 And she called his name Joseph; and said, The LORD shall add to me
another son.

GEN 30:25 And it came to pass, when Rachel had born Joseph, that Jacob said
unto Laban, Send me away, that I may go unto mine own place, and to my
country.

GEN 30:26 Give me my wives and my children, for whom I have served thee, and
let me go: for thou knowest my service which I have done thee.

GEN 30:27 And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in
thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the LORD hath
blessed me for thy sake.

GEN 30:28 And he said, Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it.

GEN 30:29 And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and how
thy cattle was with me.

GEN 30:30 For it was little which thou hadst before I came, and it is now
increased unto a multitude; and the LORD hath blessed thee since my coming:
and now when shall I provide for mine own house also?

GEN 30:31 And he said, What shall I give thee? And Jacob said, Thou shalt not
give me any thing: if thou wilt do this thing for me, I will again feed and
keep thy flock.

GEN 30:32 I will pass through all thy flock to day, removing from thence all
the speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle among the
sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such shall be my
hire.

GEN 30:33 So shall my righteousness answer for me in time to come, when it
shall come for my hire before thy face: every one that is not speckled and
spotted among the goats, and brown among the sheep, that shall be counted
stolen with me.

GEN 30:34 And Laban said, Behold, I would it might be according to thy word.

GEN 30:35 And he removed that day the he goats that were ringstraked and
spotted, and all the she goats that were speckled and spotted, and every one
that had some white in it, and all the brown among the sheep, and gave them
into the hand of his sons.

GEN 30:36 And he set three days' journey betwixt himself and Jacob: and Jacob
fed the rest of Laban's flocks.

GEN 30:37 And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and
chesnut tree; and pilled white strakes in them, and made the white appear
which was in the rods.

GEN 30:38 And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in the
gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks came to drink, that they
should conceive when they came to drink.

GEN 30:39 And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle
ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.

GEN 30:40 And Jacob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks
toward the ringstraked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban; and he put
his own flocks by themselves, and put them not unto Laban's cattle.

GEN 30:41 And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did conceive,
that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters, that
they might conceive among the rods.

GEN 30:42 But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in: so the feebler
were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's.

GEN 30:43 And the man increased exceedingly, and had much cattle, and
maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses.

GEN 31:1 And he heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob hath taken away
all that was our father's; and of that which was our father's hath he gotten
all this glory.

GEN 31:2 And Jacob beheld the countenance of Laban, and, behold, it was not
toward him as before.

GEN 31:3 And the LORD said unto Jacob, Return unto the land of thy fathers,
and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee.

GEN 31:4 And Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field unto his
flock,

GEN 31:5 And said unto them, I see your father's countenance, that it is not
toward me as before; but the God of my father hath been with me.

GEN 31:6 And ye know that with all my power I have served your father.

GEN 31:7 And your father hath deceived me, and changed my wages ten times; but
God suffered him not to hurt me.

GEN 31:8 If he said thus, The speckled shall be thy wages; then all the cattle
bare speckled: and if he said thus, The ringstraked shall be thy hire; then
bare all the cattle ringstraked.

GEN 31:9 Thus God hath taken away the cattle of your father, and given them to
me.

GEN 31:10 And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I
lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped
upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled.

GEN 31:11 And the angel of God spake unto me in a dream, saying, Jacob: And I
said, Here am I.

GEN 31:12 And he said, Lift up now thine eyes, and see, all the rams which
leap upon the cattle are ringstraked, speckled, and grisled: for I have seen
all that Laban doeth unto thee.

GEN 31:13 I am the God of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, and where
thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and
return unto the land of thy kindred.

GEN 31:14 And Rachel and Leah answered and said unto him, Is there yet any
portion or inheritance for us in our father's house?

GEN 31:15 Are we not counted of him strangers? for he hath sold us, and hath
quite devoured also our money.

GEN 31:16 For all the riches which God hath taken from our father, that is
ours, and our children's: now then, whatsoever God hath said unto thee, do.

GEN 31:17 Then Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives upon camels;

GEN 31:18 And he carried away all his cattle, and all his goods which he had
gotten, the cattle of his getting, which he had gotten in Padanaram, for to
go to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan.

GEN 31:19 And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the images
that were her father's.

GEN 31:20 And Jacob stole away unawares to Laban the Syrian, in that he told
him not that he fled.

GEN 31:21 So he fled with all that he had; and he rose up, and passed over the
river, and set his face toward the mount Gilead.

GEN 31:22 And it was told Laban on the third day that Jacob was fled.

GEN 31:23 And he took his brethren with him, and pursued after him seven days'
journey; and they overtook him in the mount Gilead.

GEN 31:24 And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said unto
him, Take heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

GEN 31:25 Then Laban overtook Jacob. Now Jacob had pitched his tent in the
mount: and Laban with his brethren pitched in the mount of Gilead.

GEN 31:26 And Laban said to Jacob, What hast thou done, that thou hast stolen
away unawares to me, and carried away my daughters, as captives taken with
the sword?

GEN 31:27 Wherefore didst thou flee away secretly, and steal away from me; and
didst not tell me, that I might have sent thee away with mirth, and with
songs, with tabret, and with harp?

GEN 31:28 And hast not suffered me to kiss my sons and my daughters? thou hast
now done foolishly in so doing.

GEN 31:29 It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the God of your
father spake unto me yesternight, saying, Take thou heed that thou speak not
to Jacob either good or bad.

GEN 31:30 And now, though thou wouldest needs be gone, because thou sore
longedst after thy father's house, yet wherefore hast thou stolen my gods?

GEN 31:31 And Jacob answered and said to Laban, Because I was afraid: for I
said, Peradventure thou wouldest take by force thy daughters from me.

GEN 31:32 With whomsoever thou findest thy gods, let him not live: before our
brethren discern thou what is thine with me, and take it to thee. For Jacob
knew not that Rachel had stolen them.

GEN 31:33 And Laban went into Jacob's tent, and into Leah's tent, and into the
two maidservants' tents; but he found them not. Then went he out of Leah's
tent, and entered into Rachel's tent.

GEN 31:34 Now Rachel had taken the images, and put them in the camel's
furniture, and sat upon them. And Laban searched all the tent, but found them
not.

GEN 31:35 And she said to her father, Let it not displease my lord that I
cannot rise up before thee; for the custom of women is upon me. And he
searched but found not the images.

GEN 31:36 And Jacob was wroth, and chode with Laban: and Jacob answered and
said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that thou hast so hotly
pursued after me?

GEN 31:37 Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast thou found of all
thy household stuff? set it here before my brethren and thy brethren, that
they may judge betwixt us both.

GEN 31:38 This twenty years have I been with thee; thy ewes and thy she goats
have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock have I not eaten.

GEN 31:39 That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee; I bare the
loss of it; of my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by day, or
stolen by night.

GEN 31:40 Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by
night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes.

GEN 31:41 Thus have I been twenty years in thy house; I served thee fourteen
years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle: and thou hast
changed my wages ten times.

GEN 31:42 Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of
Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath
seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked thee
yesternight.

GEN 31:43 And Laban answered and said unto Jacob, These daughters are my
daughters, and these children are my children, and these cattle are my
cattle, and all that thou seest is mine: and what can I do this day unto
these my daughters, or unto their children which they have born?

GEN 31:44 Now therefore come thou, let us make a covenant, I and thou; and let
it be for a witness between me and thee.

GEN 31:45 And Jacob took a stone, and set it up for a pillar.

GEN 31:46 And Jacob said unto his brethren, Gather stones; and they took
stones, and made an heap: and they did eat there upon the heap.

GEN 31:47 And Laban called it Jegarsahadutha: but Jacob called it Galeed.

GEN 31:48 And Laban said, This heap is a witness between me and thee this day.
Therefore was the name of it called Galeed;

GEN 31:49 And Mizpah; for he said, The LORD watch between me and thee, when we
are absent one from another.

GEN 31:50 If thou shalt afflict my daughters, or if thou shalt take other
wives beside my daughters, no man is with us; see, God is witness betwixt me
and thee.

GEN 31:51 And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and behold this pillar,
which I have cast betwixt me and thee:

GEN 31:52 This heap be witness, and this pillar be witness, that I will not
pass over this heap to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over this heap and
this pillar unto me, for harm.

GEN 31:53 The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their father,
judge betwixt us. And Jacob sware by the fear of his father Isaac.

GEN 31:54 Then Jacob offered sacrifice upon the mount, and called his brethren
to eat bread: and they did eat bread, and tarried all night in the mount.

GEN 31:55 And early in the morning Laban rose up, and kissed his sons and his
daughters, and blessed them: and Laban departed, and returned unto his place.

GEN 32:1 And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.

GEN 32:2 And when Jacob saw them, he said, This is God's host: and he called
the name of that place Mahanaim.

GEN 32:3 And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto the
land of Seir, the country of Edom.

GEN 32:4 And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall ye speak unto my lord Esau;
Thy servant Jacob saith thus, I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed there
until now:

GEN 32:5 And I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and
womenservants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in thy
sight.

GEN 32:6 And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy brother
Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with him.

GEN 32:7 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the
people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels, into two
bands;

GEN 32:8 And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the
other company which is left shall escape.

GEN 32:9 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father
Isaac, the LORD which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy
kindred, and I will deal well with thee:

GEN 32:10 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the
truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed
over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.

GEN 32:11 Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand
of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with
the children.

GEN 32:12 And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as
the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.

GEN 32:13 And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came to
his hand a present for Esau his brother;

GEN 32:14 Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and
twenty rams,

GEN 32:15 Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls,
twenty she asses, and ten foals.

GEN 32:16 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by
themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space
betwixt drove and drove.

GEN 32:17 And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meeteth
thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and
whose are these before thee?

GEN 32:18 Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob's; it is a present
sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.

GEN 32:19 And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that followed
the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau, when ye find
him.

GEN 32:20 And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us. For he
said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and afterward
I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.

GEN 32:21 So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night
in the company.

GEN 32:22 And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two
womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok.

GEN 32:23 And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that
he had.

GEN 32:24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until
the breaking of the day.

GEN 32:25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the
hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he
wrestled with him.

GEN 32:26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will
not let thee go, except thou bless me.

GEN 32:27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.

GEN 32:28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for
as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

GEN 32:29 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And
he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him
there.

GEN 32:30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God
face to face, and my life is preserved.

GEN 32:31 And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted
upon his thigh.

GEN 32:32 Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank,
which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he touched the
hollow of Jacob's thigh in the sinew that shrank.

GEN 33:1 And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and
with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto
Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.

GEN 33:2 And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and
her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.

GEN 33:3 And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven
times, until he came near to his brother.

GEN 33:4 And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and
kissed him: and they wept.

GEN 33:5 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and
said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath
graciously given thy servant.

GEN 33:6 Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they
bowed themselves.

GEN 33:7 And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves: and
after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves.

GEN 33:8 And he said, What meanest thou by all this drove which I met? And he
said, These are to find grace in the sight of my lord.

GEN 33:9 And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that thou hast unto
thyself.

GEN 33:10 And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found grace in thy
sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen thy
face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast pleased with me.

GEN 33:11 Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God
hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged
him, and he took it.

GEN 33:12 And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go
before thee.

GEN 33:13 And he said unto him, My lord knoweth that the children are
tender, and the flocks and herds with young are with me: and if men should
overdrive them one day, all the flock will die.

GEN 33:14 Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant: and I will
lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and the children
be able to endure, until I come unto my lord unto Seir.

GEN 33:15 And Esau said, Let me now leave with thee some of the folk that are
with me. And he said, What needeth it? let me find grace in the sight of my
lord.

GEN 33:16 So Esau returned that day on his way unto Seir.

GEN 33:17 And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him an house, and made
booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.

GEN 33:18 And Jacob came to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which is in the land of
Canaan, when he came from Padanaram; and pitched his tent before the city.

GEN 33:19 And he bought a parcel of a field, where he had spread his tent, at
the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem's father, for an hundred pieces of
money.

GEN 33:20 And he erected there an altar, and called it EleloheIsrael.

GEN 34:1 And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out
to see the daughters of the land.

GEN 34:2 And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country,
saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.

GEN 34:3 And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the
damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel.

GEN 34:4 And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel
to wife.

GEN 34:5 And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his sons
were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were
come.

GEN 34:6 And Hamor the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to commune with
him.

GEN 34:7 And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it: and
the men were grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had wrought folly
in Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter: which thing ought not to be done.

GEN 34:8 And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son Shechem
longeth for your daughter: I pray you give her him to wife.

GEN 34:9 And make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters unto us, and
take our daughters unto you.

GEN 34:10 And ye shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you; dwell
and trade ye therein, and get you possessions therein.

GEN 34:11 And Shechem said unto her father and unto her brethren, Let me find
grace in your eyes, and what ye shall say unto me I will give.

GEN 34:12 Ask me never so much dowry and gift, and I will give according as ye
shall say unto me: but give me the damsel to wife.

GEN 34:13 And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father
deceitfully, and said, because he had defiled Dinah their sister:

GEN 34:14 And they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister
to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach unto us:

GEN 34:15 But in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as we be, that
every male of you be circumcised;

GEN 34:16 Then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take your
daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people.

GEN 34:17 But if ye will not hearken unto us, to be circumcised; then will we
take our daughter, and we will be gone.

GEN 34:18 And their words pleased Hamor, and Shechem Hamor's son.

GEN 34:19 And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had
delight in Jacob's daughter: and he was more honourable than all the house of
his father.

GEN 34:20 And Hamor and Shechem his son came unto the gate of their city, and
communed with the men of their city, saying,

GEN 34:21 These men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the
land, and trade therein; for the land, behold, it is large enough for them;
let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our
daughters.

GEN 34:22 Only herein will the men consent unto us for to dwell with us, to be
one people, if every male among us be circumcised, as they are circumcised.

GEN 34:23 Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast
of their's be our's? only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell with
us.

GEN 34:24 And unto Hamor and unto Shechem his son hearkened all that went out
of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all that went out
of the gate of his city.

GEN 34:25 And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two
of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brethren, took each man his
sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the males.

GEN 34:26 And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the
sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went out.

GEN 34:27 The sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and spoiled the city, because
they had defiled their sister.

GEN 34:28 They took their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses, and that
which was in the city, and that which was in the field,

GEN 34:29 And all their wealth, and all their little ones, and their wives
took they captive, and spoiled even all that was in the house.

GEN 34:30 And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make me to
stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the
Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together
against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house.

GEN 34:31 And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with an harlot?

GEN 35:1 And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and
make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from
the face of Esau thy brother.

GEN 35:2 Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him,
Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your
garments:

GEN 35:3 And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar
unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the
way which I went.

GEN 35:4 And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their
hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them
under the oak which was by Shechem.

GEN 35:5 And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that
were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.

GEN 35:6 So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that is,
Bethel, he and all the people that were with him.

GEN 35:7 And he built there an altar, and called the place Elbethel: because
there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.

GEN 35:8 But Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was buried beneath Bethel
under an oak: and the name of it was called Allonbachuth.

GEN 35:9 And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and
blessed him.

GEN 35:10 And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be
called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name
Israel.

GEN 35:11 And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply;
a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out
of thy loins;

GEN 35:12 And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give
it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.

GEN 35:13 And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him.

GEN 35:14 And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him,
even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he poured
oil thereon.

GEN 35:15 And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him,
Bethel.

GEN 35:16 And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to
come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.

GEN 35:17 And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife
said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.

GEN 35:18 And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died)
that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin.

GEN 35:19 And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is
Bethlehem.

GEN 35:20 And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of
Rachel's grave unto this day.

GEN 35:21 And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.

GEN 35:22 And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben
went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the
sons of Jacob were twelve:

GEN 35:23 The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, and
Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:

GEN 35:24 The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:

GEN 35:25 And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:

GEN 35:26 And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid: Gad, and Asher: these are
the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padanaram.

GEN 35:27 And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of
Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.

GEN 35:28 And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years.

GEN 35:29 And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his
people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.

GEN 36:1 Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.

GEN 36:2 Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of
Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon
the Hivite;

GEN 36:3 And Bashemath Ishmael's daughter, sister of Nebajoth.

GEN 36:4 And Adah bare to Esau Eliphaz; and Bashemath bare Reuel;

GEN 36:5 And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are the sons
of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan.

GEN 36:6 And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the
persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his
substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country
from the face of his brother Jacob.

GEN 36:7 For their riches were more than that they might dwell together; and
the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them because of their
cattle.

GEN 36:8 Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.

GEN 36:9 And these are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in
mount Seir:

GEN 36:10 These are the names of Esau's sons; Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife
of Esau, Reuel the son of Bashemath the wife of Esau.

GEN 36:11 And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam, and
Kenaz.

GEN 36:12 And Timna was concubine to Eliphaz Esau's son; and she bare to
Eliphaz Amalek: these were the sons of Adah Esau's wife.

GEN 36:13 And these are the sons of Reuel; Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah, and
Mizzah: these were the sons of Bashemath Esau's wife.

GEN 36:14 And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah the
daughter of Zibeon, Esau's wife: and she bare to Esau Jeush, and Jaalam, and
Korah.

GEN 36:15 These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the
firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz,

GEN 36:16 Duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes that
came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these were the sons of Adah.

GEN 36:17 And these are the sons of Reuel Esau's son; duke Nahath, duke Zerah,
duke Shammah, duke Mizzah: these are the dukes that came of Reuel in the land
of Edom; these are the sons of Bashemath Esau's wife.

GEN 36:18 And these are the sons of Aholibamah Esau's wife; duke Jeush, duke
Jaalam, duke Korah: these were the dukes that came of Aholibamah the daughter
of Anah, Esau's wife.

GEN 36:19 These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their dukes.

GEN 36:20 These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who inhabited the land;
Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah,

GEN 36:21 And Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan: these are the dukes of the
Horites, the children of Seir in the land of Edom.

GEN 36:22 And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan's sister
was Timna.

GEN 36:23 And the children of Shobal were these; Alvan, and Manahath, and
Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.

GEN 36:24 And these are the children of Zibeon; both Ajah, and Anah: this was
that Anah that found the mules in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of
Zibeon his father.

GEN 36:25 And the children of Anah were these; Dishon, and Aholibamah the
daughter of Anah.

GEN 36:26 And these are the children of Dishon; Hemdan, and Eshban, and
Ithran, and Cheran.

GEN 36:27 The children of Ezer are these; Bilhan, and Zaavan, and Akan.

GEN 36:28 The children of Dishan are these; Uz, and Aran.

GEN 36:29 These are the dukes that came of the Horites; duke Lotan, duke
Shobal, duke Zibeon, duke Anah,

GEN 36:30 Duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan: these are the dukes that came
of Hori, among their dukes in the land of Seir.

GEN 36:31 And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before
there reigned any king over the children of Israel.

GEN 36:32 And Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom: and the name of his city
was Dinhabah.

GEN 36:33 And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his
stead.

GEN 36:34 And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Temani reigned in his
stead.

GEN 36:35 And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who smote Midian in the
field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Avith.

GEN 36:36 And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.

GEN 36:37 And Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his
stead.

GEN 36:38 And Saul died, and Baalhanan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead.

GEN 36:39 And Baalhanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his
stead: and the name of his city was Pau; and his wife's name was
Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.

GEN 36:40 And these are the names of the dukes that came of Esau, according
to their families, after their places, by their names; duke Timnah, duke
Alvah, duke Jetheth,

GEN 36:41 Duke Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon,

GEN 36:42 Duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,

GEN 36:43 Duke Magdiel, duke Iram: these be the dukes of Edom, according
to their habitations in the land of their possession: he is Esau the father
of the Edomites.

GEN 37:1 And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the
land of Canaan.

GEN 37:2 These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years
old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons
of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph
brought unto his father their evil report.

GEN 37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was
the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

GEN 37:4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all
his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

GEN 37:5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they
hated him yet the more.

GEN 37:6 And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have
dreamed:

GEN 37:7 For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf
arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round
about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.

GEN 37:8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or
shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for
his dreams, and for his words.

GEN 37:9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said,
Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and
the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

GEN 37:10 And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father
rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed?
Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves
to thee to the earth?

GEN 37:11 And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

GEN 37:12 And his brethren went to feed their father's flock in Shechem.

GEN 37:13 And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed the flock in
Shechem? come, and I will send thee unto them. And he said to him, Here am I.

GEN 37:14 And he said to him, Go, I pray thee, see whether it be well with thy
brethren, and well with the flocks; and bring me word again. So he sent him
out of the vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.

GEN 37:15 And a certain man found him, and, behold, he was wandering in the
field: and the man asked him, saying, What seekest thou?

GEN 37:16 And he said, I seek my brethren: tell me, I pray thee, where they
feed their flocks.

GEN 37:17 And the man said, They are departed hence; for I heard them say, Let
us go to Dothan. And Joseph went after his brethren, and found them in
Dothan.

GEN 37:18 And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto
them, they conspired against him to slay him.

GEN 37:19 And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.

GEN 37:20 Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some
pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see
what will become of his dreams.

GEN 37:21 And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands; and
said, Let us not kill him.

GEN 37:22 And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit
that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him; that he might rid him
out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.

GEN 37:23 And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that
they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;

GEN 37:24 And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was
empty, there was no water in it.

GEN 37:25 And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and
looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with their
camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.

GEN 37:26 And Judah said unto his brethren, What profit is it if we slay our
brother, and conceal his blood?

GEN 37:27 Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand
be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were
content.

GEN 37:28 Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and
lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for
twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.

GEN 37:29 And Reuben returned unto the pit; and, behold, Joseph was not in the
pit; and he rent his clothes.

GEN 37:30 And he returned unto his brethren, and said, The child is not; and
I, whither shall I go?

GEN 37:31 And they took Joseph's coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and
dipped the coat in the blood;

GEN 37:32 And they sent the coat of many colours, and they brought it to their
father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be thy son's coat
or no.

GEN 37:33 And he knew it, and said, It is my son's coat; an evil beast hath
devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.

GEN 37:34 And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and
mourned for his son many days.

GEN 37:35 And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but
he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave
unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.

GEN 37:36 And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of
Pharaoh's, and captain of the guard.

GEN 38:1 And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his
brethren, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name was Hirah.

GEN 38:2 And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was
Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her.

GEN 38:3 And she conceived, and bare a son; and he called his name Er.

GEN 38:4 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and she called his name
Onan.

GEN 38:5 And she yet again conceived, and bare a son; and called his name
Shelah: and he was at Chezib, when she bare him.

GEN 38:6 And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was Tamar.

GEN 38:7 And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the LORD; and
the LORD slew him.

GEN 38:8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother's wife, and marry
her, and raise up seed to thy brother.

GEN 38:9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass,
when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled it on the ground,
lest that he should give seed to his brother.

GEN 38:10 And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew
him also.

GEN 38:11 Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, Remain a widow at thy
father's house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest peradventure
he die also, as his brethren did. And Tamar went and dwelt in her father's
house.

GEN 38:12 And in process of time the daughter of Shuah Judah's wife died; and
Judah was comforted, and went up unto his sheepshearers to Timnath, he and
his friend Hirah the Adullamite.

GEN 38:13 And it was told Tamar, saying, Behold thy father in law goeth up to
Timnath to shear his sheep.

GEN 38:14 And she put her widow's garments off from her, and covered her with
a vail, and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which is by the way to
Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him to
wife.

GEN 38:15 When Judah saw her, he thought her to be an harlot; because she had
covered her face.

GEN 38:16 And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let
me come in unto thee; (for he knew not that she was his daughter in law.) And
she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me?

GEN 38:17 And he said, I will send thee a kid from the flock. And she said,
Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it?

GEN 38:18 And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she said, Thy
signet, and thy bracelets, and thy staff that is in thine hand. And he gave
it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him.

GEN 38:19 And she arose, and went away, and laid by her vail from her, and put
on the garments of her widowhood.

GEN 38:20 And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullamite, to
receive his pledge from the woman's hand: but he found her not.

GEN 38:21 Then he asked the men of that place, saying, Where is the harlot,
that was openly by the way side? And they said, There was no harlot in this
place.

GEN 38:22 And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the
men of the place said, that there was no harlot in this place.

GEN 38:23 And Judah said, Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed: behold, I
sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.

GEN 38:24 And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told
Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also,
behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and
let her be burnt.

GEN 38:25 When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying,
By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray
thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.

GEN 38:26 And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous
than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again
no more.

GEN 38:27 And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins
were in her womb.

GEN 38:28 And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his
hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread, saying,
This came out first.

GEN 38:29 And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his
brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? this breach be
upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.

GEN 38:30 And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon
his hand: and his name was called Zarah.

GEN 39:1 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of
Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the
Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.

GEN 39:2 And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was
in the house of his master the Egyptian.

GEN 39:3 And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made
all that he did to prosper in his hand.

GEN 39:4 And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made
him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.

GEN 39:5 And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in
his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian's
house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he
had in the house, and in the field.

GEN 39:6 And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not ought
he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and
well favoured.

GEN 39:7 And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast
her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.

GEN 39:8 But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my master
wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he
hath to my hand;

GEN 39:9 There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back
any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this
great wickedness, and sin against God?

GEN 39:10 And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he
hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.

GEN 39:11 And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house
to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.

GEN 39:12 And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left
his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

GEN 39:13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in
her hand, and was fled forth,

GEN 39:14 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them,
saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto
me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:

GEN 39:15 And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and
cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.

GEN 39:16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.

GEN 39:17 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew
servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:

GEN 39:18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left
his garment with me, and fled out.

GEN 39:19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife,
which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me;
that his wrath was kindled.

GEN 39:20 And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a place
where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

GEN 39:21 But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him
favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

GEN 39:22 And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the
prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the
doer of it.

GEN 39:23 The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his
hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it
to prosper.

GEN 40:1 And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of the king
of Egypt and his baker had offended their lord the king of Egypt.

GEN 40:2 And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers, against the chief
of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers.

GEN 40:3 And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard,
into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound.

GEN 40:4 And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served
them: and they continued a season in ward.

GEN 40:5 And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in one
night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and
the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the prison.

GEN 40:6 And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon
them, and, behold, they were sad.

GEN 40:7 And he asked Pharaoh's officers that were with him in the ward of his
lord's house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sadly to day?

GEN 40:8 And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no
interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong
to God? tell me them, I pray you.

GEN 40:9 And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my
dream, behold, a vine was before me;

GEN 40:10 And in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it
budded, and her blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought forth
ripe grapes:

GEN 40:11 And Pharaoh's cup was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and pressed
them into Pharaoh's cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.

GEN 40:12 And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of it: The
three branches are three days:

GEN 40:13 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head, and restore
thee unto thy place: and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh's cup into his hand,
after the former manner when thou wast his butler.

GEN 40:14 But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and shew kindness,
I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out
of this house:

GEN 40:15 For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: and
here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon.

GEN 40:16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said
unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, I had three white baskets
on my head:

GEN 40:17 And in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of bakemeats for
Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head.

GEN 40:18 And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof:
The three baskets are three days:

GEN 40:19 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off
thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from
off thee.

GEN 40:20 And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday,
that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the
chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.

GEN 40:21 And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he
gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand:

GEN 40:22 But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.

GEN 40:23 Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.

GEN 41:1 And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh
dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

GEN 41:2 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine
and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow.

GEN 41:3 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river,
ill favoured and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the brink
of the river.

GEN 41:4 And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well
favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.

GEN 41:5 And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of
corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good.

GEN 41:6 And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up
after them.

GEN 41:7 And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And
Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

GEN 41:8 And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and
he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men
thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could
interpret them unto Pharaoh.

GEN 41:9 Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my
faults this day:

GEN 41:10 Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the
captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker:

GEN 41:11 And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each man
according to the interpretation of his dream.

GEN 41:12 And there was there with us a young man, an Hebrew, servant to the
captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us our dreams;
to each man according to his dream he did interpret.

GEN 41:13 And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he
restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

GEN 41:14 Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily
out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came
in unto Pharaoh.

GEN 41:15 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is
none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst
understand a dream to interpret it.

GEN 41:16 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give
Pharaoh an answer of peace.

GEN 41:17 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the
bank of the river:

GEN 41:18 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed
and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow:

GEN 41:19 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill
favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for
badness:

GEN 41:20 And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven
fat kine:

GEN 41:21 And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had
eaten them; but they were still ill favoured, as at the beginning. So I
awoke.

GEN 41:22 And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one stalk,
full and good:

GEN 41:23 And, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the east
wind, sprung up after them:

GEN 41:24 And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told this unto
the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

GEN 41:25 And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath
shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.

GEN 41:26 The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are
seven years: the dream is one.

GEN 41:27 And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are
seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be
seven years of famine.

GEN 41:28 This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God is
about to do he sheweth unto Pharaoh.

GEN 41:29 Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the
land of Egypt:

GEN 41:30 And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the
plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume
the land;

GEN 41:31 And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that
famine following; for it shall be very grievous.

GEN 41:32 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because
the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

GEN 41:33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set
him over the land of Egypt.

GEN 41:34 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and
take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

GEN 41:35 And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and
lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

GEN 41:36 And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years
of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not
through the famine.

GEN 41:37 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of
all his servants.

GEN 41:38 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this
is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?

GEN 41:39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all
this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:

GEN 41:40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all
my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

GEN 41:41 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land
of Egypt.

GEN 41:42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon
Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold
chain about his neck;

GEN 41:43 And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they
cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of
Egypt.

GEN 41:44 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall
no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.

GEN 41:45 And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to
wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out
over all the land of Egypt.

GEN 41:46 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of
Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout
all the land of Egypt.

GEN 41:47 And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by
handfuls.

GEN 41:48 And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were
in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the
field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.

GEN 41:49 And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he
left numbering; for it was without number.

GEN 41:50 And unto Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came,
which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him.

GEN 41:51 And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said
he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house.

GEN 41:52 And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me
to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.

GEN 41:53 And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of Egypt,
were ended.

GEN 41:54 And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had
said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was
bread.

GEN 41:55 And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to
Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go unto Joseph;
what he saith to you, do.

GEN 41:56 And the famine was over all the face of the earth: and Joseph opened
all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore
in the land of Egypt.

GEN 41:57 And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because
that the famine was so sore in all lands.

GEN 42:1 Now when Jacob saw that there was corn in Egypt, Jacob said unto his
sons, Why do ye look one upon another?

GEN 42:2 And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is corn in Egypt: get
you down thither, and buy for us from thence; that we may live, and not die.

GEN 42:3 And Joseph's ten brethren went down to buy corn in Egypt.

GEN 42:4 But Benjamin, Joseph's brother, Jacob sent not with his brethren; for
he said, Lest peradventure mischief befall him.

GEN 42:5 And the sons of Israel came to buy corn among those that came: for
the famine was in the land of Canaan.

GEN 42:6 And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that sold to
all the people of the land: and Joseph's brethren came, and bowed down
themselves before him with their faces to the earth.

GEN 42:7 And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made himself
strange unto them, and spake roughly unto them; and he said unto them, Whence
come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy food.

GEN 42:8 And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him.

GEN 42:9 And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them, and said
unto them, Ye are spies; to see the nakedness of the land ye are come.

GEN 42:10 And they said unto him, Nay, my lord, but to buy food are thy
servants come.

GEN 42:11 We are all one man's sons; we are true men, thy servants are no
spies.

GEN 42:12 And he said unto them, Nay, but to see the nakedness of the land ye
are come.

GEN 42:13 And they said, Thy servants are twelve brethren, the sons of one man
in the land of Canaan; and, behold, the youngest is this day with our
father, and one is not.

GEN 42:14 And Joseph said unto them, That is it that I spake unto you, saying,
Ye are spies:

GEN 42:15 Hereby ye shall be proved: By the life of Pharaoh ye shall not go
forth hence, except your youngest brother come hither.

GEN 42:16 Send one of you, and let him fetch your brother, and ye shall be
kept in prison, that your words may be proved, whether there be any truth in
you: or else by the life of Pharaoh surely ye are spies.

GEN 42:17 And he put them all together into ward three days.

GEN 42:18 And Joseph said unto them the third day, This do, and live; for I
fear God:

GEN 42:19 If ye be true men, let one of your brethren be bound in the house of
your prison: go ye, carry corn for the famine of your houses:

GEN 42:20 But bring your youngest brother unto me; so shall your words be
verified, and ye shall not die. And they did so.

GEN 42:21 And they said one to another, We are verily guilty concerning our
brother, in that we saw the anguish of his soul, when he besought us, and we
would not hear; therefore is this distress come upon us.

GEN 42:22 And Reuben answered them, saying, Spake I not unto you, saying, Do
not sin against the child; and ye would not hear? therefore, behold, also his
blood is required.

GEN 42:23 And they knew not that Joseph understood them; for he spake unto
them by an interpreter.

GEN 42:24 And he turned himself about from them, and wept; and returned
to them again, and communed with them, and took from them Simeon, and bound
him before their eyes.

GEN 42:25 Then Joseph commanded to fill their sacks with corn, and to restore
every man's money into his sack, and to give them provision for the way: and
thus did he unto them.

GEN 42:26 And they laded their asses with the corn, and departed thence.

GEN 42:27 And as one of them opened his sack to give his ass provender in the
inn, he espied his money; for, behold, it was in his sack's mouth.

GEN 42:28 And he said unto his brethren, My money is restored; and, lo, it is
even in my sack: and their heart failed them, and they were afraid, saying
one to another, What is this that God hath done unto us?

GEN 42:29 And they came unto Jacob their father unto the land of Canaan, and
told him all that befell unto them; saying,

GEN 42:30 The man, who is the lord of the land, spake roughly to us, and took
us for spies of the country.

GEN 42:31 And we said unto him, We are true men; we are no spies:

GEN 42:32 We be twelve brethren, sons of our father; one is not, and the
youngest is this day with our father in the land of Canaan.

GEN 42:33 And the man, the lord of the country, said unto us, Hereby shall I
know that ye are true men; leave one of your brethren here with me, and take
food for the famine of your households, and be gone:

GEN 42:34 And bring your youngest brother unto me: then shall I know that ye
are no spies, but that ye are true men: so will I deliver you your
brother, and ye shall traffick in the land.

GEN 42:35 And it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, that, behold, every
man's bundle of money was in his sack: and when both they and their father
saw the bundles of money, they were afraid.

GEN 42:36 And Jacob their father said unto them, Me have ye bereaved of my
children: Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and ye will take Benjamin away:
all these things are against me.

GEN 42:37 And Reuben spake unto his father, saying, Slay my two sons, if I
bring him not to thee: deliver him into my hand, and I will bring him to thee
again.

GEN 42:38 And he said, My son shall not go down with you; for his brother is
dead, and he is left alone: if mischief befall him by the way in the which ye
go, then shall ye bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.

GEN 43:1 And the famine was sore in the land.

GEN 43:2 And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they had
brought out of Egypt, their father said unto them, Go again, buy us a little
food.

GEN 43:3 And Judah spake unto him, saying, The man did solemnly protest unto
us, saying, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.

GEN 43:4 If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy thee
food:

GEN 43:5 But if thou wilt not send him, we will not go down: for the man said
unto us, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.

GEN 43:6 And Israel said, Wherefore dealt ye so ill with me, as to tell the
man whether ye had yet a brother?

GEN 43:7 And they said, The man asked us straitly of our state, and of our
kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have ye another brother? and we
told him according to the tenor of these words: could we certainly know that
he would say, Bring your brother down?

GEN 43:8 And Judah said unto Israel his father, Send the lad with me, and we
will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and thou, and also
our little ones.

GEN 43:9 I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him: if I
bring him not unto thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear the blame
for ever:

GEN 43:10 For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second
time.

GEN 43:11 And their father Israel said unto them, If it must be so now, do
this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the
man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts,
and almonds:

GEN 43:12 And take double money in your hand; and the money that was brought
again in the mouth of your sacks, carry it again in your hand; peradventure
it was an oversight:

GEN 43:13 Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the man:

GEN 43:14 And God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may send
away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be bereaved of my children, I am
bereaved.

GEN 43:15 And the men took that present, and they took double money in their
hand and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood before
Joseph.

GEN 43:16 And when Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the ruler of his
house, Bring these men home, and slay, and make ready; for these men shall
dine with me at noon.

GEN 43:17 And the man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men into
Joseph's house.

GEN 43:18 And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Joseph's
house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in our sacks at
the first time are we brought in; that he may seek occasion against us, and
fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses.

GEN 43:19 And they came near to the steward of Joseph's house, and they
communed with him at the door of the house,

GEN 43:20 And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food:

GEN 43:21 And it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that we opened our
sacks, and, behold, every man's money was in the mouth of his sack, our money
in full weight: and we have brought it again in our hand.

GEN 43:22 And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food: we
cannot tell who put our money in our sacks.

GEN 43:23 And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: your God, and the God of
your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he
brought Simeon out unto them.

GEN 43:24 And the man brought the men into Joseph's house, and gave them
water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses provender.

GEN 43:25 And they made ready the present against Joseph came at noon: for
they heard that they should eat bread there.

GEN 43:26 And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was
in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.

GEN 43:27 And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father
well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?

GEN 43:28 And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health, he is
yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.

GEN 43:29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his
mother's son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto
me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.

GEN 43:30 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother:
and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there.

GEN 43:31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and
said, Set on bread.

GEN 43:32 And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and
for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the
Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination
unto the Egyptians.

GEN 43:33 And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his
birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marvelled
one at another.

GEN 43:34 And he took and sent messes unto them from before him: but
Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of their's. And they drank, and
were merry with him.

GEN 44:1 And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the men's
sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man's money in his
sack's mouth.

GEN 44:2 And put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack's mouth of the
youngest, and his corn money. And he did according to the word that Joseph
had spoken.

GEN 44:3 As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they and
their asses.

GEN 44:4 And when they were gone out of the city, and not yet far off, Joseph
said unto his steward, Up, follow after the men; and when thou dost overtake
them, say unto them, Wherefore have ye rewarded evil for good?

GEN 44:5 Is not this it in which my lord drinketh, and whereby indeed he
divineth? ye have done evil in so doing.

GEN 44:6 And he overtook them, and he spake unto them these same words.

GEN 44:7 And they said unto him, Wherefore saith my lord these words? God
forbid that thy servants should do according to this thing:

GEN 44:8 Behold, the money, which we found in our sacks' mouths, we brought
again unto thee out of the land of Canaan: how then should we steal out of
thy lord's house silver or gold?

GEN 44:9 With whomsoever of thy servants it be found, both let him die, and we
also will be my lord's bondmen.

GEN 44:10 And he said, Now also let it be according unto your words: he with
whom it is found shall be my servant; and ye shall be blameless.

GEN 44:11 Then they speedily took down every man his sack to the ground, and
opened every man his sack.

GEN 44:12 And he searched, and began at the eldest, and left at the youngest:
and the cup was found in Benjamin's sack.

GEN 44:13 Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and
returned to the city.

GEN 44:14 And Judah and his brethren came to Joseph's house; for he was yet
there: and they fell before him on the ground.

GEN 44:15 And Joseph said unto them, What deed is this that ye have done? wot
ye not that such a man as I can certainly divine?

GEN 44:16 And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we speak?
or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the iniquity of thy
servants: behold, we are my lord's servants, both we, and he also with whom
the cup is found.

GEN 44:17 And he said, God forbid that I should do so: but the man in whose
hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, get you up in
peace unto your father.

GEN 44:18 Then Judah came near unto him, and said, Oh my lord, let thy
servant, I pray thee, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not thine anger
burn against thy servant: for thou art even as Pharaoh.

GEN 44:19 My lord asked his servants, saying, Have ye a father, or a brother?

GEN 44:20 And we said unto my lord, We have a father, an old man, and a child
of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is left
of his mother, and his father loveth him.

GEN 44:21 And thou saidst unto thy servants, Bring him down unto me, that I
may set mine eyes upon him.

GEN 44:22 And we said unto my lord, The lad cannot leave his father: for if he
should leave his father, his father would die.

GEN 44:23 And thou saidst unto thy servants, Except your youngest brother come
down with you, ye shall see my face no more.

GEN 44:24 And it came to pass when we came up unto thy servant my father, we
told him the words of my lord.

GEN 44:25 And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food.

GEN 44:26 And we said, We cannot go down: if our youngest brother be with us,
then will we go down: for we may not see the man's face, except our youngest
brother be with us.

GEN 44:27 And thy servant my father said unto us, Ye know that my wife bare me
two sons:

GEN 44:28 And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in
pieces; and I saw him not since:

GEN 44:29 And if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, ye shall
bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.

GEN 44:30 Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, and the lad be
not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life;

GEN 44:31 It shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with us,
that he will die: and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of thy
servant our father with sorrow to the grave.

GEN 44:32 For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father, saying, If
I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my father for ever.

GEN 44:33 Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant abide instead of the lad
a bondman to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brethren.

GEN 44:34 For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest
peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.

GEN 45:1 Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by
him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man
with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren.

GEN 45:2 And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard.

GEN 45:3 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet
live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his
presence.

GEN 45:4 And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And
they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into
Egypt.

GEN 45:5 Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold
me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.

GEN 45:6 For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there
are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.

GEN 45:7 And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the
earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

GEN 45:8 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made
me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all
the land of Egypt.

GEN 45:9 Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy
son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not:

GEN 45:10 And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near
unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children's children, and thy flocks,
and thy herds, and all that thou hast:

GEN 45:11 And there will I nourish thee; for yet there are five years of
famine; lest thou, and thy household, and all that thou hast, come to
poverty.

GEN 45:12 And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin,
that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you.

GEN 45:13 And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all
that ye have seen; and ye shall haste and bring down my father hither.

GEN 45:14 And he fell upon his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept; and Benjamin
wept upon his neck.

GEN 45:15 Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them: and after
that his brethren talked with him.

GEN 45:16 And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, Joseph's
brethren are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants.

GEN 45:17 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Say unto thy brethren, This do ye;
lade your beasts, and go, get you unto the land of Canaan;

GEN 45:18 And take your father and your households, and come unto me: and I
will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the fat of the
land.

GEN 45:19 Now thou art commanded, this do ye; take you wagons out of the land
of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your father, and
come.

GEN 45:20 Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is
your's.

GEN 45:21 And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons,
according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.

GEN 45:22 To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to Benjamin
he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment.

GEN 45:23 And to his father he sent after this manner; ten asses laden with
the good things of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corn and bread and
meat for his father by the way.

GEN 45:24 So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and he said unto
them, See that ye fall not out by the way.

GEN 45:25 And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan unto
Jacob their father,

GEN 45:26 And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over
all the land of Egypt. And Jacob's heart fainted, for he believed them not.

GEN 45:27 And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto
them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the
spirit of Jacob their father revived:

GEN 45:28 And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go
and see him before I die.

GEN 46:1 And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to
Beersheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac.

GEN 46:2 And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said,
Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.

GEN 46:3 And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down
into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:

GEN 46:4 I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring
thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.

GEN 46:5 And Jacob rose up from Beersheba: and the sons of Israel carried
Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons
which Pharaoh had sent to carry him.

GEN 46:6 And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had gotten
in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed with him:

GEN 46:7 His sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and his sons'
daughters, and all his seed brought he with him into Egypt.

GEN 46:8 And these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into
Egypt, Jacob and his sons: Reuben, Jacob's firstborn.

GEN 46:9 And the sons of Reuben; Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.

GEN 46:10 And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and
Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman.

GEN 46:11 And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.

GEN 46:12 And the sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Pharez, and
Zarah: but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan. And the sons of Pharez
were Hezron and Hamul.

GEN 46:13 And the sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron.

GEN 46:14 And the sons of Zebulun; Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.

GEN 46:15 These be the sons of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob in Padanaram,
with his daughter Dinah: all the souls of his sons and his daughters were
thirty and three.

GEN 46:16 And the sons of Gad; Ziphion, and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, and
Arodi, and Areli.

GEN 46:17 And the sons of Asher; Jimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and Beriah, and
Serah their sister: and the sons of Beriah; Heber, and Malchiel.

GEN 46:18 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his
daughter, and these she bare unto Jacob, even sixteen souls.

GEN 46:19 The sons of Rachel Jacob's wife; Joseph, and Benjamin.

GEN 46:20 And unto Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim,
which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him.

GEN 46:21 And the sons of Benjamin were Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel,
Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard.

GEN 46:22 These are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob: all the
souls were fourteen.

GEN 46:23 And the sons of Dan; Hushim.

GEN 46:24 And the sons of Naphtali; Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer, and Shillem.

GEN 46:25 These are the sons of Bilhah, which Laban gave unto Rachel his
daughter, and she bare these unto Jacob: all the souls were seven.

GEN 46:26 All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out of his
loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were threescore and six;

GEN 46:27 And the sons of Joseph, which were born him in Egypt, were two
souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were
threescore and ten.

GEN 46:28 And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to direct his face unto
Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.

GEN 46:29 And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his
father, to Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on his
neck, and wept on his neck a good while.

GEN 46:30 And Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen thy
face, because thou art yet alive.

GEN 46:31 And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father's house, I
will go up, and shew Pharaoh, and say unto him, My brethren, and my father's
house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me;

GEN 46:32 And the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle;
and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have.

GEN 46:33 And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall
say, What is your occupation?

GEN 46:34 That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from
our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye may dwell
in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the
Egyptians.

GEN 47:1 Then Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my
brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have, are come
out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land of Goshen.

GEN 47:2 And he took some of his brethren, even five men, and presented them
unto Pharaoh.

GEN 47:3 And Pharaoh said unto his brethren, What is your occupation? And they
said unto Pharaoh, Thy servants are shepherds, both we, and also our fathers.

GEN 47:4 They said morever unto Pharaoh, For to sojourn in the land are we
come; for thy servants have no pasture for their flocks; for the famine is
sore in the land of Canaan: now therefore, we pray thee, let thy servants
dwell in the land of Goshen.

GEN 47:5 And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy brethren
are come unto thee:

GEN 47:6 The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy
father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if
thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my
cattle.

GEN 47:7 And Joseph brought in Jacob his father, and set him before Pharaoh:
and Jacob blessed Pharaoh.

GEN 47:8 And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou?

GEN 47:9 And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage
are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of
my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of
my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.

GEN 47:10 And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.

GEN 47:11 And Joseph placed his father and his brethren, and gave them a
possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of
Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.

GEN 47:12 And Joseph nourished his father, and his brethren, and all his
father's household, with bread, according to their families.

GEN 47:13 And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very
sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason
of the famine.

GEN 47:14 And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of
Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph
brought the money into Pharaoh's house.

GEN 47:15 And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of
Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why
should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.

GEN 47:16 And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your
cattle, if money fail.

GEN 47:17 And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them
bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the
herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for
that year.

GEN 47:18 When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and
said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent;
my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight
of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:

GEN 47:19 Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy
us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh:
and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not
desolate.

GEN 47:20 And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the
Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them:
so the land became Pharaoh's.

GEN 47:21 And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the
borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.

GEN 47:22 Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a
portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh
gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.

GEN 47:23 Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day
and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the
land.

GEN 47:24 And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the
fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the
field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for
your little ones.

GEN 47:25 And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the
sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's servants.

GEN 47:26 And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that
Pharaoh should have the fifth part, except the land of the priests only,
which became not Pharaoh's.

GEN 47:27 And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and
they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.

GEN 47:28 And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole
age of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years.

GEN 47:29 And the time drew nigh that Israel must die: and he called his son
Joseph, and said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, put, I
pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me; bury
me not, I pray thee, in Egypt:

GEN 47:30 But I will lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me out of
Egypt, and bury me in their buryingplace. And he said, I will do as thou hast
said.

GEN 47:31 And he said, Swear unto me. And he sware unto him. And Israel bowed
himself upon the bed's head.

GEN 48:1 And it came to pass after these things, that one told Joseph, Behold,
thy father is sick: and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.

GEN 48:2 And one told Jacob, and said, Behold, thy son Joseph cometh unto
thee: and Israel strengthened himself, and sat upon the bed.

GEN 48:3 And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me at Luz
in the land of Canaan, and blessed me,

GEN 48:4 And said unto me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply
thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will give this land
to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession.

GEN 48:5 And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee
in the land of Egypt before I came unto thee into Egypt, are mine; as Reuben
and Simeon, they shall be mine.

GEN 48:6 And thy issue, which thou begettest after them, shall be thine, and
shall be called after the name of their brethren in their inheritance.

GEN 48:7 And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the land
of Canaan in the way, when yet there was but a little way to come unto
Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath; the same is Bethlehem.

GEN 48:8 And Israel beheld Joseph's sons, and said, Who are these?

GEN 48:9 And Joseph said unto his father, They are my sons, whom God hath
given me in this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray thee, unto me, and I
will bless them.

GEN 48:10 Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see.
And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed them, and embraced them.

GEN 48:11 And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and,
lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed.

GEN 48:12 And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed
himself with his face to the earth.

GEN 48:13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel's
left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel's right hand, and
brought them near unto him.

GEN 48:14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim's
head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding
his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.

GEN 48:15 And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham
and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day,

GEN 48:16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let
my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and
let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.

GEN 48:17 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the
head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father's hand, to
remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head.

GEN 48:18 And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the
firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head.

GEN 48:19 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he
also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger
brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of
nations.

GEN 48:20 And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless,
saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before
Manasseh.

GEN 48:21 And Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die: but God shall be with
you, and bring you again unto the land of your fathers.

GEN 48:22 Moreover I have given to thee one portion above thy brethren, which
I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.

GEN 49:1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together,
that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

GEN 49:2 Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken
unto Israel your father.

GEN 49:3 Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my
strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

GEN 49:4 Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to
thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

GEN 49:5 Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their
habitations.

GEN 49:6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine
honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their
selfwill they digged down a wall.

GEN 49:7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was
cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.

GEN 49:8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be
in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before
thee.

GEN 49:9 Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he
stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him
up?

GEN 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between
his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people
be.

GEN 49:11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice
vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:

GEN 49:12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

GEN 49:13 Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an
haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.

GEN 49:14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

GEN 49:15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant;
and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.

GEN 49:16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

GEN 49:17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth
the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

GEN 49:18 I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD.

GEN 49:19 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.

GEN 49:20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal
dainties.

GEN 49:21 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

GEN 49:22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose
branches run over the wall:

GEN 49:23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:

GEN 49:24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made
strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the
shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

GEN 49:25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the
Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings
of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

GEN 49:26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my
progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on
the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate
from his brethren.

GEN 49:27 Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the
prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.

GEN 49:28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their
father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing
he blessed them.

GEN 49:29 And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered unto my
people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron
the Hittite,

GEN 49:30 In the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before
Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron
the Hittite for a possession of a buryingplace.

GEN 49:31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried
Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah.

GEN 49:32 The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from
the children of Heth.

GEN 49:33 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered
up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his
people.

GEN 50:1 And Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept upon him, and kissed
him.

GEN 50:2 And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his
father: and the physicians embalmed Israel.

GEN 50:3 And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days
of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and
ten days.

GEN 50:4 And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spake unto the
house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in your eyes, speak, I
pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,

GEN 50:5 My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have
digged for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me. Now therefore
let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will come again.

GEN 50:6 And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as he made
thee swear.

GEN 50:7 And Joseph went up to bury his father: and with him went up all the
servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land
of Egypt,

GEN 50:8 And all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his father's
house: only their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left
in the land of Goshen.

GEN 50:9 And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a
very great company.

GEN 50:10 And they came to the threshingfloor of Atad, which is beyond
Jordan, and there they mourned with a great and very sore lamentation: and he
made a mourning for his father seven days.

GEN 50:11 And when the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the
mourning in the floor of Atad, they said, This is a grievous mourning to the
Egyptians: wherefore the name of it was called Abelmizraim, which is beyond
Jordan.

GEN 50:12 And his sons did unto him according as he commanded them:

GEN 50:13 For his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him
in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the field
for a possession of a buryingplace of Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre.

GEN 50:14 And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all that
went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father.

GEN 50:15 And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they
said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the
evil which we did unto him.

GEN 50:16 And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did
command before he died, saying,

GEN 50:17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass
of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray
thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And
Joseph wept when they spake unto him.

GEN 50:18 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they
said, Behold, we be thy servants.

GEN 50:19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?

GEN 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto
good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

GEN 50:21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones.
And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.

GEN 50:22 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph
lived an hundred and ten years.

GEN 50:23 And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation: the
children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon Joseph's
knees.

GEN 50:24 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit
you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham,
to Isaac, and to Jacob.

GEN 50:25 And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will
surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.

GEN 50:26 So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they
embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.
