1Now when He concluded all His sayings in the hearing of the people, He entered Capernaum.2And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear to him, was sick and ready to die.3So when he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to Him, pleading with Him to come and heal his servant.4And when they came to Jesus, they begged Him earnestly, saying that the one for whom He should do this was deserving,5"for he loves our nation, and has built us a synagogue."6Then Jesus went with them. And when He was already not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying to Him, "Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof.7Therefore I did not even think myself worthy to come to You. But say the word, and my servant will be healed.8For I also am a man placed under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."9When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turned around and said to the crowd that followed Him, "I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!"10And those who were sent, returning to the house, found the servant well who had been sick. 11Now it happened, the day after, that He went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and a large crowd.12And when He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her.13When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep."14Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, "Young man, I say to you, arise."15So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother.16Then fear came upon all, and they glorified God, saying, "A great prophet has risen up among us"; and, "God has visited His people."17And this report about Him went throughout all Judea and all the surrounding region.
1Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided.2The fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were also stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained.3And the waters receded continually from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters decreased.4Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat.5And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.6So it came to pass, at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made.7Then he sent out a raven, which kept going to and fro until the waters had dried up from the earth.8He also sent out from himself a dove, to see if the waters had receded from the face of the ground.9But the dove found no resting place for the sole of her foot, and she returned into the ark to him, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth. So he put out his hand and took her, and drew her into the ark to himself.10And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent the dove out from the ark.11Then the dove came to him in the evening, and behold, a freshly plucked olive leaf was in her mouth; and Noah knew that the waters had receded from the earth.12So he waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove, which did not return again to him anymore.13And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, that the waters were dried up from the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked, and indeed the surface of the ground was dry.14And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dried.15Then God spoke to Noah, saying,16"Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons and your sons' wives with you.17Bring out with you every living thing of all flesh that is with you: birds and cattle and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, so that they may abound on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth."18So Noah went out, and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him.19Every animal, every creeping thing, every bird, and whatever creeps on the earth, according to their families, went out of the ark.20Then Noah built an altar to the Lord, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.21And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma. Then the Lord said in His heart, "I will never again curse the ground for man's sake, although the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done.22"While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease."
1So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.2And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be on every beast of the earth, on every bird of the air, on all that move on the earth, and on all the fish of the sea. They are given into your hand.3Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs.4But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.5Surely for your lifeblood I will demand a reckoning; from the hand of every beast I will require it, and from the hand of man. From the hand of every man's brother I will require the life of man.6"Whoever sheds man's blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.7And as for you, be fruitful and multiply; Bring forth abundantly in the earth And multiply in it."8Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying:9"And as for Me, behold, I establish My covenant with you and with your descendants after you,10and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you, of all that go out of the ark, every beast of the earth.11Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth."12And God said: "This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:13I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.14It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud;15and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.16The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth."17And God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth."18Now the sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And Ham was the father of Canaan.19These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.20And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard.21Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent.22And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.23But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father's nakedness.24So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him.25Then he said: "Cursed be Canaan; A servant of servants He shall be to his brethren."26And he said: "Blessed be the Lord, The God of Shem, And may Canaan be his servant.27May God enlarge Japheth, And may he dwell in the tents of Shem; And may Canaan be his servant."28And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.29So all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years; and he died.
1Now this is the genealogy of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And sons were born to them after the flood.2The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.3The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.4The sons of Javan were Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5From these the coastland peoples of the Gentiles were separated into their lands, everyone according to his language, according to their families, into their nations.6The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan.7The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtechah; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.8Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth.9He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord."10And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.11From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah,12and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (that is the principal city).13Mizraim begot Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim,14Pathrusim, and Casluhim (from whom came the Philistines and Caphtorim).15Canaan begot Sidon his firstborn, and Heth;16the Jebusite, the Amorite, and the Girgashite;17the Hivite, the Arkite, and the Sinite;18the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. Afterward the families of the Canaanites were dispersed.19And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as you go toward Gerar, as far as Gaza; then as you go toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha.20These were the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands and in their nations.21And children were born also to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder.22The sons of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram.23The sons of Aram were Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. 24Arphaxad begot Salah, and Salah begot Eber.25To Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.26Joktan begot Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,27Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,28Obal, Abimael, Sheba,29Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were the sons of Joktan.30And their dwelling place was from Mesha as you go toward Sephar, the mountain of the east.31These were the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands, according to their nations.32These were the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations, in their nations; and from these the nations were divided on the earth after the flood.
1To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David. Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.2How long, O you sons of men, Will you turn my glory to shame? How long will you love worthlessness And seek falsehood? Selah3But know that the Lord has set apart for Himself him who is godly; The Lord will hear when I call to Him.4Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah5Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And put your trust in the Lord.6There are many who say, "Who will show us any good?" Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.7You have put gladness in my heart, More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.8I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
