Genesis chapter 1 in the beginning God

created the heaven and the earth 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 and God said let

there be light and there was light and

God saw the light that it was good

and God divided the light from the

darkness and God called the light day

and the darkness he called night and the

evening and the morning were the first

day

and God said let there be a firmament in

the midst of the waters and let it

divide the waters from the waters 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 and God called

the firmament heaven and the evening in

the morning were the second day

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 and God called the dry land earth

and the gathering together of the waters

called he seas and God saw that it was

good 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 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 and the evening in the morning were

the third day 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

and let them be for lights in the

firmament of the heaven to give light

upon the earth

and it was so 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 and God set them

in the firmament of the heaven to give

light upon the earth and a rule over the

day and over the night and to divide the

light from the darkness

and God saw that it was good and the

evening and the morning were the fourth

day 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 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 and God blessed them saying be

fruitful and multiply and fill the

waters in the seas and let fowl multiply

in the earth and the evening and the

morning were the fifth day 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 and God

made the beasts of the earth after his

kind and cattle after their kind and

everything that creepeth upon the earth

after his kind and God saw that it was

good 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 so God created man in his

own image in the image of God created he

him male and female created he them 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 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 and to every beast of the

earth and to every fowl of the air and

to everything that creepeth upon the

earth wherein there is life I have given

every green herb for meat and it was so

and God saw everything that he had made

and behold it was very good

and the evening and the morning were the

sixth day chapter 2 thus the heavens and

the earth were finished and all the host

of them 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 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 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

on the heavens 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 but there went up

a mist from the earth and watered the

whole face of the ground 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 and the Lord God planted a garden

eastward in Eden and there he put the

man whom he had formed and out of the

ground made the Lord gone 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 and a river went out of

Eden to water the garden and from thence

it was parted and became into four heads

the name of the first is pison that is

it which compasseth the whole land of

havilah where there is gold and the gold

of that land is good there is Dillon and

the Onyx stone and the name of the

second river is Gihon the same is it

that compasseth the whole land of

Ethiopia and the name of the third river

is hid achill that is it which goeth

toward the east of assyria and the

fourth River is Euphrates and the Lord

God took the man and put him into the

Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep

it and the Lord God commanded the man

saying of every tree of the garden thou

mayest freely eat 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

and the Lord God said it is not good

that the man should be alone I will make

him an help meet for him 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 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 and helped made

for him 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 and the rib

which the Lord God had taken from man

made he a woman and brought her unto the

man 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 therefore shall

a man leave his father and his mother

and shall cleave unto his wife and they

shall be one flesh and they were both

naked the man and his wife and were not

ashamed chapter 3 now the serpent was

more subtle 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 and the woman said unto the

serpent we may eat of the fruit of the

trees of the garden but of the fruit of

the tree which is in the midst of the

garden God has said you shall not eat of

it neither shall you touch it lest you

die and the serpent said unto the woman

ye shall not surely die for God doth

know that in the day ye eat thereof then

your eyes shall be opened and ye shall

be as God's knowing good and evil

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 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 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 and the Lord God

called unto Adam and said unto Him where

art thou and he said I heard thy voice

in the garden and I was afraid because I

was naked and I hid myself and he said

who told thee that thou was naked

hast thou eaten of the tree whereof I

commanded thee that thou should us not

eat and the man said the woman whom that

gave us to be with me she gave me of the

tree and I did eat and the Lord God said

unto the woman what is this that thou

has done and the woman said the serpent

beguiled me and I did eat and the Lord

God said unto the serpent because thou

has 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 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 under 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 and unto Adam he

said because thou has hearkened unto the

voice of thy wife and has 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

thorns also and thistles shall it bring

forth to thee and thou shalt eat the

herb of the field in the sweat of thy

face shalt thou eat bread till thou

return unto the ground for out of it was

thou taken for dust thou art and unto

dust shalt thou return and Adam called

his wife's name Eve because she was the

mother of all living under Adam also and

to his wife did the Lord God make coats

of skins and clothed them and the Lord

God said Behold the man has 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 forever therefore the Lord God

sent him forth from the Garden of Eden

to till the ground from whence he was

taken 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 chapter 4 and Adam knew Eve

his wife and she conceived and bare Cain

and said I have gotten a man from the

Lord and she again bare his brother Abel

and Abel was a keeper of sheep but Cain

was a tiller of the ground and in

process of time it came to pass that

Cain brought of the fruit of the ground

an offering unto the Lord 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 but under Cain and to his

offering he had not respect and Cain was

very wroth and his countenance fell and

the Lord said unto Cain why art thou

wroth and why is thy countenance fallen

if thou doest well shalt thou not be

accepted and if thou doest not well sin

lieth at the door and under thee shall

be his desire and thou shalt rule over

him 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

and the Lord said unto Cain where is

Abel thy brother and he said I know not

am I my brother's keeper and he said

what hast thou done the voice of thy

brother's blood crieth unto me from the

ground and now art thou cursed from the

earth which hath opened her mouth to

receive thy brother's blood from thy

hand 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 and Cain said unto

the Lord my punishment is greater than I

can bear

behold thou has 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 in a vagabond in the earth and

it shall come to pass that everyone that

findeth me shall slay me and the Lord

said unto Him therefore whosoever

slayeth Cain vengeance shall be taken on

him Sevenfold and the Lord said a mark

upon Cain lest any finding him should

kill him and Cain went out from the

presence of the Lord and dwelt in the

Land of Nod on the East of Eden 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 and under Enoch was born

chapter six and it came to pass when men

began to multiply on the face of the

earth and daughters were born unto them

that the sons of God saw the daughters

of men that they were fair and they took

them wives of all which they chose and

the Lord said my spirit shall not always

strive with man for that he also is

flash yet his days shall be an hundred

and twenty years 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 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 and it

repented the Lord that he had made man

on the earth and it grieved him at his

heart

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 but Noah found grace in the eyes of

the Lord these are the generations of

Noah Noah was a just man and perfect in

his generations and Noah walked with God

and Noah begat three sons Shem ham and

Japheth the earth also was corrupt

before God and the earth was filled with

violence

and God looked upon the earth and behold

it was corrupt for all flesh had

corrupted his way upon the earth 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 make

thee an ark of gopher wood rooms shalt

thou make in the Ark and shalt pitch it

within and without with pitch and this

is the fashion which thou shalt make it

off the length of the ark shall be 300

cubits the breadth of it 50 cubits and

the height of it 30 cubits a window

shalt thou make to the ark and in the

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 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 everything that is in the earth

shall die 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 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 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 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

thus did Noah according to all that God

commanded him so did he

Chapter seven 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 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 of fowls also of the

air by sevens the male and the female to

keep seed alive upon the face of all the

earth 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

and Noah did according unto all that the

Lord had commanded him and Noah was 600

years old when the flood of waters was

upon the earth 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 flow of clean beasts and

of beasts that are not clean and a fowls

and of everything that creepeth upon the

earth there went in two and two unto

Noah into the ark the male and the

female as God had commanded Noah and it

came to pass after seven days that the

waters of the flood were upon the earth

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

and the rain was upon the earth forty

days and forty nights in the self-same

day entered Noah and Shem and ham and

Japheth the sons of Noah

and a Noah's wife and the three wives of

his sons with them into the ark 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

and they went in unto Noah into the ark

two and two of all flesh wherein is the

breath of life and they that went in

went in male and female of all flesh as

God had commanded him and the Lord shut

him in and the flood was forty days upon

the earth and the waters increased and

bear up the ark and it was lift up above

the earth and the waters prevailed and

were increased greatly upon the earth

and the ark went upon the face of the

waters and the waters prevailed

exceedingly upon the earth and all the

high heels that were under the whole

heaven were covered 15 cubits upward did

the waters prevailed and the mountains

were covered and all flesh died that

moved upon the earth both of fowl and of

cattle and of beasts and of every

creeping thing that creepeth upon the

earth and every man all in whose

nostrils was the breath of life of all

that was in the dry land died 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 and the waters prevailed

upon the earth and hundred and fifty

days

chapter eight 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 ass waged the Fountains

also of the deep and the windows of

heaven were stopped and the rain from

heaven was restrained and the waters

returned from off the earth continually

and after the end of the hundred and

fifty days the waters were abated and

the ark rested in the seventh month on

the seventeenth day of the month upon

the mountains of Ararat 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 and it came to pass at

the end of forty days that Noah opened

the window of the ark which he had made

and he sent forth a raven which went

forth to and fro until the waters were

dried up from off the earth also he sent

forth a dove from him to see if the

water's were abated from off the face of

the ground 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 and he stayed yet other seven

days and again he sent forth the dove

out of the ark and the Dove came into

him in the evening and lo in her mouth

was an olive leaf plucked off so no one

knew that the waters were abated from

off the earth and he stayed yet other

seven days and sent forth the Dove which

returned not again unto him anymore 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

and in the second month on the seventh

and twentieth day of the month was the

earth dried and God spake unto Noah

saying go forth of the ark thou and thy

wife

and thy sons and thy sons wives with

thee bring forth with the 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 and

Noah went forth and his sons and his

wife and his sons wives with him every

beast every creeping thing and every

fowl and whatsoever creepeth upon the

earth after their kinds went forth out

of the ark 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 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 living thing as I

have done while the earth remaineth seed

time and harvest and cold and heat and

summer in winter and day and night shall

not cease chapter 9 and God blessed Noah

and his sons and said unto them be

fruitful and multiply and replenish the

earth 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 every moving

thing that liveth shall be meat for you

even as the green herb have I given you

all things but flesh with the life

thereof which is the blood thereof

shall ye not eat 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 whoso sheddeth man's blood by man

shall his blood be shed for in the image

of God made He Man and you be fruitful

and multiply bring forth abundantly in

the earth and multiply therein and God

spake unto Noah and to his sons with him

saying and I behold I establish my

covenant with you and with your seed

after you 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 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 anymore be a flood to destroy the

earth 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 I do

set my bow in the cloud and it shall be

for a token of a covenant between me and

the earth and it shall come to pass when

I bring a cloud over the earth that the

bow shall be seen in the cloud 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 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 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 and the sons of Noah that went

forth of the ark were shem and ham and

Japheth

and ham is the father of canaan these

are the three sons of Noah and of them

was the whole earth overspread and Noah

began to be an husbandman and he planted

a vineyard and he drank of the wine and

was drunken and he was uncovered within

his tent and ham the father of Canaan

saw the nakedness of his father and told

his two brethren without 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 fathers nakedness and

Noah awoke from his wine and knew what

his younger son had done unto him and he

said cursed be Canaan a servant of

servants shall he be unto his brethren

and he said blessed be the Lord God of

Shem and Canaan shall be his servant God

shall enlarge Japheth and he shall dwell

in the tents of Shem and Canaan shall be

his servant and Noah lived after the

flood three hundred and fifty years and

lands

after their Nations these are the

families of the sons of Noah after their

generations in their Nations and by

these were the nation's divided in the

earth after the flood chapter 11 and the

whole earth was of one language and of

one speech 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 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 mortar and they

said go to let us build 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 and the Lord came down to

see the city and the tower which the

children of men builded 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 go to let us go down and

there confound their language that they

may not understand one another speech

so the Lord scattered them abroad from

thence upon the face of all the earth

and they left off to build the city

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 these are

the generations of Shem shem was an

hundred years old and began our faqs had

two years after the flood and Shem lived

begat terah and they were lived after he

begat terah an hundred and nineteen

years and begat sons and daughters

and Tora lived seventy years and begat

Abram Nahor and Haran now these are the

generations of Tura Tura begat Abram

Nahor and Haran and Haran began lot and

Haran died before his father Terah in

the land of his Nativity in ur of the

Chaldeans and Abram and Nahor took them

wives the name of Abraham's wife was

Sarai and the name of neighbor's wife

Milka the daughter of Haran the father

of Milcah and the father of iske but

Sarai was barren she had no child and

turret up Abram his son and lot the son

of Haran his son son and Sarai his

daughter-in-law his son Abraham's wife

and they went forth with them from ur of

the chaldeans of canaan and they came

unto Haran and dwelt there and the days

of Terah were 205 years and Tora died in

Haran chapter 12 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

show thee 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 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 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 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

and Abram passed through the land unto

the place of Sikkim under the plane of

Moreh

and the Canaanite was then in the land

and the Lord appeared unto Abram and

said unto thy seed will I give this land

and there builded he an altar under the

Lord who appeared under him and he

removed from thence unto a mountain on

the east of Bethel and pitched his tent

having Bethel on the west and high on

the east and there he builded an altar

unto the Lord and called upon the name

of the Lord and Abram journeyed going on

still toward the south and there was a

famine in the land

nay Broome went down into Egypt to

sojourn there for the famine was

Grievous in the land and it came to pass

when he was come near to enter into

Egypt that he said unto Sarah his wife

behold now I know that thou art a fair

woman to look upon 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 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 and it came to pass that

when Abram was coming to Egypt the

Egyptians beheld the woman that she was

very fair

the princes also a pharaoh saw her and

commended her before Pharaoh and the

woman was taken into Pharaoh's house 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 and the Lord plagued

Pharaoh and his house with great plagues

because of Sarai Abrams wife 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 why

said it's 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 and Pharaoh commanded his men

concerning him and they sent him away

and his wife and all that he had chapter

13 and Abram went up out of Egypt he and

his wife and all that he had and locked

with him into the south and Abram was

very rich in cattle and silver and in

gold and he went on his journeys from

the south even to betho under the place

where his tent had been at the beginning

between Bethel and high under the place

of the altar which he had made there at

the first and there Abram called on the

name of the Lord and law also which went

with Abram had flocks and herds and

tents 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

and there was a strife between the

herdmen of Abraham's cattle and the

herdsmen of lots cattle and the

Canaanite and the perizzite dwelt then

in the land and Abram said unto lot let

there be no strife I pray thee between

me and thee and between my herd men and

I heard men for we be brethren 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 and

Lotte lifted up his eyes and beheld all

the plain of Jordan that it was well

watered everywhere before the Lord

destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah

even as the Garden of the Lord like the

land of Egypt as thou comest unto Zohar

then Locke shows him all the plain of

Jordan and Locke journeyed East and they

separated themselves the one from the

other Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan

and lot dwelled in the cities of the

plain and pitched his tent toward Sodom

but the men of Sodom were wicked and

sinners before the Lord exceedingly and

the Lord said unto Abram after that law

was separated from him lift up now thine

eyes and look from the place where thou

art northward and southward and eastward

and westward for all the land which thou

seest to thee will I give it and to thy

seed forever 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 arise

walk through the land in the length of

it and in the breadth of it for I will

give it unto thee 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 chapter 14 and it

came to pass in the days of amraphel

king of shinar arioch king of ellasar

cattle eomer king of elam and tidal king

of nations that these made war with

birra

king of sodom and with bersia king of

gomorrah shine ab king of admah and

Shammi burger king of sabayon and the

king of bela which is ZOA all these were

joined together in the Vale of Siddim

which is the salt sea twelve years they

served cattle eomer and in the

thirteenth year they rebelled and in the

fourteenth year came cattle eomer and

the kings that were with him and smote

the ruffians in Ashtaroth corneum and

the zoo Zim's in ham and the Imams in

Sheba Correa thaen and the whole rights

in their Mount Seir on to LP room which

is by the wilderness and they returned

and came to n mishpat which is Kadish

and smote all the country of the

Amalekites and also the Amorite

well enhances on tamer 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 battled

with them in the Vale of Siddim with

cattle eomer the king of elam and with

tidal king of nations and amraphel king

of shinar and arioch king of ellasar for

Kings with five and the Vale of Siddim

was full of slime pits and the kings of

Sodom and Gomorrah fled and fell there

and they that remained fled to the

mountain and they took all the goods of

Sodom and Gomorrha and all their vittles

and went their way and they took lot

Abrams brothers son who dwelt in Sodom

and his Goods and departed and there

came one that had escaped and told Abram

the Hebrew for he dwelt in the plain of

Mamre the Amorite

brother of ash Cole and brother of Aynor

and these were Confederate with Abram

and when Abram heard that his brother

was taken captive he armed his trained

servants born in his own house 318 and

pursued them unto damn and he divided

himself against them he and his servants

by night and smote them and pursued them

unto Hoba which is on the left-hand of

Damascus and he brought back all the

goods and also brought again his brother

lot and his goods and the women also and

the people 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 and Melchizedek

king of Salem brought forth bread and

wine and he was the priest of the Most

High God and He blessed him and said

blessed be Abram of the Most High God

possessor of heaven and earth and

blessed be the Most High God which hath

delivered thine enemies into thy hand

and he gave him tithes of all and the

king of sodom said unto Abram give me

the persons and take the goods to

thyself and Abram said to the king of

sodom I have lifted up mine hand unto

the Lord the Most High God the possessor

of heaven and

that I will not take from a thread even

to a shoe latchet and that I will not

take anything that is thine lest thou

shoulda say I have made Abram rich save

only that which the young men have eaten

and the portion of the men which went

with me

ay Naresh Kol and mamrie let them take

their portion chapter 15 after these

things the word of the Lord came unto

Abram in a vision saying fear not Abram

I am thy shield and by exceeding great

reward and Abram said Lord God what will

thou give me seeing I go childless and

the steward of my house is this Eliezer

of Damascus and Abram said Behold to me

thou hast given no seed and lo one born

in my house is mine heir 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 and he brought him

forth abroad and said look now toward

heaven and tell the stars that thou be

able to number them and he said unto him

so shall thy seed be and he believed in

the Lord and he counted it to him for

righteousness and he said unto him I am

the Lord that brought the out of ur of

the chaldeans it and he said Lord God

whereby shall I know that I shall

inherit it 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 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 and when the

fowls came down upon the carcasses Abram

drove them away and when the Sun was

going down a deep sleep fell upon Abram

and lo and horror of great darkness fell

upon him and he said unto Abram nor of a

surety that thy seed shall be a stranger

in a land that is not theirs and shall

serve them and they shall afflict them

for hundred years and also that nation

whom they shall serve will I judge and

afterward shall they come out with great

substance and thou shalt go to thy

fathers in peace thou shalt be buried in

a good old age but in the fourth

generation they shall come hither again

for the iniquity of the amorite is not

yet full 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 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 the

Kenites and the kena sites and the

Cadman nights and the hittites and the

perizzites and the refa ins and the

amorite and the canaanites and the

girgashites and the jebusites chapter 16

now Sarai Abrams wife bear him no

children and she had in handmaid an

Egyptian whose name was Hagar and Sarah

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 an Abram

hearkened to the voice of Sarai and

Sarai Abrams 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 and

he went in unto Hagar and she conceived

and when she saw that she had conceived

her mistress was despised in her eyes

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 but Abram said

unto Sarai behold thy maid is in thy

hand due to her as it pleased at thee

and when Sarai dealt hardly with her she

fled from her face and the angel of the

Lord found her by a fountain of water in

the wilderness by the fountain in the

way too sure and he said hey God Sarah's

maid whence camest thou and whither wilt

thou go and she said I flee from the

face of my mistress Sarai and the angel

of the Lord said unto her return to thy

mistress and submit thyself under her

hands and the angel of the Lord said

unto her I will multiply thy seed

exceedingly

that it shall not be numbered for

multitude and the angel of the Lord said

unto her behold thou art with child and

shall bear a son and shall call his name

Ishmael because the LORD hath heard thy

affliction 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 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 see of me wherefore the

well was called beer-lahai-roi behold it

is between kadesh and berried and hagar

bear abraham and abram called his son's

name which hagar bear ismael and Abram

was four score and six years old when

Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram

chapter 17 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 and I will make my covenant

between me and thee and will multiply at

the exceedingly and Abram fell on his

face and God talked with him saying as

for me behold my covenant is with thee

and thou shall be a father of many

nations neither shall thy name anymore

be called Abram but thy name shall be

Abraham for a father of many nations

have I made thee and I will make the

exceeding fruit fall and I will make

nations of thee and Kings shall come out

of thee 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 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 and God said unto Abraham thou

shalt keep my covenant therefore thou

and thy seed after thee in their

generations this is my covenant which he

shall keep between me and you and thy

seed after thee every man child among

you shall be circumcised and ye shall

circumcise the flesh of your foreskin

and it shall be a token of the Covenant

betwixt me and you and he that is eight

days old shall be circumcised de mungyu

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 he that is born in thy house

and he that has bought with thy money

must needs be circumcised

and my covenant shall be in your flesh

for an everlasting covenant 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 and God said

unto Abraham as for Sarai thy wife thou

shalt not call her name Sarai but Sarah

shall her name be and I will bless her

and give thee a son also of her yay I

will bless her and she shall be a mother

of Nations kings of people shall be of

her then Abram fell upon his face and

laughed and said in his heart shall a

child to be born unto him that is on

hundred years old and shall Sarah that

is 90 years old bear and Abraham said

unto God o that Ishmael might live

before thee 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 and as for Ishmael

I have heard thee behold I have blessed

him and will make him fruitful and will

multiply him exceedingly twelve Prince's

shall he beget and I will make him a

great nation but my covenant will I

establish with Isaac which Sarah shall

bear unto thee at this set time in the

next year and he left off talking with

him and God went up from Abraham 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 as God had said

unto him and Abraham was ninety years

old and nine when he was circumcised in

the flesh of his foreskin an Ishmael his

son was thirteen years old when he was

circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin

in the selfsame was Abraham circumcised

and Ishmael his son and all the men of

his house born in the house and bought

with money of the stranger were

circumcised dwith in chapter 18 and the

Lord appeared unto him in the plains of

Mamre and he sat in the tent door in the

heat of the day 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 and said my lord if

now I have found favor in thy sight pass

not away I pray thee from thy servant

let a little water I pray you be fetched

and wash your feet and rest yourselves

under the tree 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 has said and

Abraham hastened into the tent under

Sara and said make ready quickly three

measures of fine meal knead it and make

cakes upon the hearth and Abraham ran

onto the herd and fetched a calf tender

and good and gave it unto a young man

and he hasted to dress it 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 and they said unto Him where is

Sarah thy wife and he said behold in the

tent 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 now Abraham and

Sarah were old and well stricken in age

and it ceased to be with Sarah after the

manner of women

therefore Sara laughed within herself

saying after I am waxed old shall I have

pleasure my lord being old also and the

Lord said unto Abraham wherefore did

Sarah laugh sane shall I of a surety

bear a child which am old is anything

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 then Sarah denied

saying I laughed not for she was afraid

and he said nay but thou didst laugh and

the men rose up from fence and looked

toward Sodom and Abraham went with them

to bring them on the way and the Lord

said shall I hide from Abraham that

thing which I do seen that Abraham shall

surely become a great and mighty nation

and all the nations of the earth shall

be blessed in him 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

and the Lord said because the cry of

Sodom and Gomorrah is great and because

their sin is very Grievous I will go

down now and see whether they have done

altogether according to the cry of it

which has come unto me and if not I will

know and the men turned their faces from

thence and went toward Sodom but Abraham

stood yet before the Lord and Abraham

drew near and said wilt thou also

destroy the righteous with the wicked

peradventure there be 50 righteous

within the city wilt thou also destroy

and not spare the place for the fifty

righteous that are therein let 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 before from thee shall not

the judge of all the

do-right and the Lord said if I find in

Sodom 50 righteous within the city then

I will spare all the place for their

sakes and Abraham answered and said

behold now I have taken upon me to speak

unto the Lord which am but dust and

ashes peradventure there shall lack five

of the fifty righteous without destroy

all the city for lack of five and he

said if I find there forty and five I

will not destroy it 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 sake and

he said unto Him o 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 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 sake and he said oh let not

the Lord be angry and I will speak yet

but this once peradventure 10 shall be

found there and he said I will not

destroy it for 10s sake and the Lord

went his way as soon as he had left

communing with Abraham and Abraham

returned under his place chapter 19 and

there came two angels to Sodom and 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 and he said Behold now my Lords

tourney and I pray you into your

servants 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 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 but before they lay down the men

of the city even the men of Sodom

compass the house round both

than young all the people from every

quarter and they called unto lot and

said unto Him where are the men which

came in to be this night bring them out

unto us that we may know them and lot

went out of the door unto them and shut

the door after him and said I pray you

brethren do not so wickedly behold now I

have two daughters which have not known

man let me I pray you bring them out

unto you and duty to them as is good in

your eyes only unto these men do nothing

for therefore came they under the shadow

of my roof 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 locked and came near to break

the door but the men put forth her hand

and pulled lot into the house to them

and shut to the door and they smote the

men that were at the door of the house

with blindness both small and great so

that they weary themselves to find the

door and the men said unto lot hast thou

here any besides son-in-law and thy sons

and my daughters and whatsoever thou

hast in the city bring them out of this

place for we will destroy this place

because the cry of them is wax and great

before the face of the Lord and the Lord

hath sent us to destroy it 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 marked under his sons-in-law 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 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 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 as thou be

consumed and lost said unto them o not

so my lord behold now thy servant hath

found Grace and eyesight

and I asked magnified thy mercy which

thou hast showed unto me and saving my

life and I cannot escape to the mountain

lest some evil take me and I die behold

now this city is near to flee unto and

it is a little one oh let me escaped

thither is it not a little one and my

soul shall live and he said unto him see

I have accepted they concerning this

thing also that I will not overthrow

this city for the which thou hast spoken

hastily escape thither for I cannot do

anything till thou become thither

therefore the name of the city was

called Zohar the Sun was risen upon the

earth one lot entered into Zohar then

the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon

Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the

Lord out of heaven and he overthrew

those cities and all the plain and all

the inhabitants of the cities and that

which grew upon the ground but his wife

looked back from behind him and she

became a pillar of salt and Abraham got

up early in the morning to the place

where he stood before the Lord and he

looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah and

toward all the land of the plain and

beheld and

the smoke of the country went up as the

smoke of a furnace 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 Locke dwelt and lot went up

out of Zawar and dwelt in the mountain

and his two daughters with him for he

feared to dwell in Zohar and he dwelt in

a cave he and his two daughters 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 come let us make

a father drink wine and we will lie with

him that we may preserve seed of our

father 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 and it came to pass on the

morrow that the firstborn said unto the

younger behold I lay yes tonight with my

father let us make him drink wine this

night also and go thou in and lie with

him but we may preserve seed of our

father 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 or when she arose

thus were both the daughters of lot with

child by their father and the firstborn

bear a son and called his name Moab the

same is the father of the Moabites under

this day and the younger she also bare a

son and called his name Ben am I the

same is the father of the children of

Ammon unto this day

the chapter 20 and Abraham journeyed

from thence toward the south country and

dwelled between Kadesh and Shur and

sojourned and Giron and Abraham said of

Sarah his wife she is my sister and

Abimelech king of garage sent and took

Sarah 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 has taken for she is a man's

wife but Abimelech had not come near her

and he said Lord wilt thou slay also a

righteous nation said he not unto me she

is my sister and she even she herself

said he is my brother and the integrity

of my heart an innocence II of my hands

have I done this 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 D not to touch

her 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 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

then Abimelech called Abraham and said

unto him what has that done unto us and

what have I offended thee that thou has

brought on me and on my kingdom a great

sin thou hast done deeds unto me that

ought not to be done and Abimelech said

unto Abraham what sawest thou that thou

has done this thing 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 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 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

show unto me at every place whither we

shall come say of me he is my brother

and Abimelech took sheep and oxen and

men's servants and women servants and

gave them unto Abraham and restored him

Sarah his wife and Abimelech said Behold

my land is before thee dwell where it

pleased at thee and under Sarah he said

behold I have given thy brother a

thousand pieces of silver behold he is

to be a covering of the eyes unto all

that are with thee and with all other

thus she was reproved so Abraham prayed

unto God and God healed Abimelech and

his wife and his maid servants and they

bear children where the Lord had fast

closed up all the wombs of the house of

Abimelech because of Sarah Abraham's

wife chapter 21 and the Lord visited

Sara as he had said and the Lord did

unto Sarah as he had spoken for Sarah

conceived and bare Abraham a son in his

old age at the set time of which God had

spoken to him and Abraham called the

name of his son that was born unto Him

whom Sarah bear to him Isaac and Abraham

circumcised his son Isaac being eight

days old as God had commanded him and

Abraham was in hundred years old when

his son Isaac was born unto Him and

Sarah said God hath made me to laugh so

that all that hear will laugh with me

and she said who would have said unto

Abraham that Sarah should have given

children suck for I have borne him a son

in his old age and the child grew and

was weaned and Abraham made a great

feast the same day that Isaac was weaned

and Sarah saw the son of Hagar the

Egyptian which she had born unto Abraham

mocking 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 and the

thing was very Grievous in Abraham's

sight because of his son 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 and also of the

son of the bondwoman will I make a

nation because he is thy seed 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 and the water

was spent in the bottle and she cast the

child under one of the shrubs 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 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 arise lift up the

lad and hold him in thine hand for I

will make him a great nation and God

opened her eyes and she saw well of

water and she went and filled the bottle

with water and gave the lad drink and

God was with the land and he grew and

dwelt in the wilderness and became an

archer and he dwelt in the wilderness of

paran and his mother took him a wife out

of the land of Egypt and it came to pass

at that time that Abimelech and Phicol

the chief captain of his host spake unto

Abraham saying God is with thee in all

that thou doest 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 has sojourns

and Abraham said I will swear and

Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a

well of water which Abimelech servants

had violently taken away and Abimelech

said I wot not who hath done this thing

neither didst thou tell me neither yet

heard I of it but today and Abraham took

she

oxen and gave them unto Abimelech and

both of them made a covenant and Abraham

set seven ewe lambs of the flock by

themselves and Abimelech said unto

Abraham what mean these seven ewe lambs

which thou has set by themselves 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 wherefore he called that place

Beersheba because there they swear both

of them thus they made a covenant at

Beersheba then Abimelech rose up and fie

call the chief captain of his host and

they returned into the land of the

Philistines and Abraham planted a Grove

in Beersheba and called thereon the name

of the Lord the everlasting God and

Abraham sojourned in the Philistines

land many days chapter 22 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 and he said

take now thy son thine only son Isaac

whom thou lovest and get the into the

land of Moriah and offer him there for a

burnt offering upon one of the mountains

which I will tell thee of 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 then on the third day Abraham

lifted up his eyes and saw the place

afar off 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 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 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 in the wood but

where is the lamb for a burnt offering

and Abraham said my son God will provide

himself a lamb for a burnt

offering so they went both of them

together 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 and

Abraham stretched forth his hand and

took the knife to slay his son and the

angel of the Lord called unto him out of

heaven and said Abraham Abraham and he

said here am I and he said lay not thine

hand upon the lad neither do thou

anything unto Him for now I know that

thou fearest God seeing thou hast not

withheld thy son thine only son from me

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 and Abraham called

the name of that place Jehovah Jireh

as it is said to this day in the mount

of the Lord it shall be seen and the

angel of the Lord called unto Abraham

out of heaven the second time 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 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 and in thy seed shall all the

nations of the earth be blessed because

thou hast obeyed my voice so Abraham

returned unto his young men and they

rose up and went together to Beersheba

and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba and it

came to pass after these things that it

was told Abraham saying behold Milka she

hath also borne children under that

brother name or has his firstborn and

buz his brother and Kem Ewald the father

verum and ki said and heizo and

njet laughs and befool and both who will

begat rebecca these eight Milka did bear

to Nahor Abraham's brother and his

concubine whose name was rumah she bear

also teba and gay hem and pay hash and

may oka chapter 23 and Sarah was a

hundred and seven and twenty years old

these were the years of the life of

Sarah and Sarah died in Kiryat Arba the

same as Hebron in the land of Canaan and

Abraham came to mourn for Sarah and to

weep for her and Abraham stood up from

before his dead and spake unto the sons

of Heth saying I am a stranger and a

sojourner with you give me a possession

of a burying-place with you that I may

bury my dead out of my sight and the

children of Heth answered Abraham saying

unto Him

hear us my lord thou art a mighty Prince

among us in the choice of our Sepulcher

bury thy dead none of us shall withhold

from me his Sepulcher but that thou

mayst bury thy dead and Abraham stood up

and bowed himself to the people of the

land even to the children of Heth and he

communed with them saying if it be your

mind that I should bury my dead out of

my sight hear me

and entreat for me to ephraim the son of

Zohar 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 burying-place amongst

you and Ephraim dwelt among the children

of Heth and Ephraim 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 nay my lord hear

me the field give IV 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 and Abraham bowed

down himself before the people of the

land and he spake unto ephraim in the

audience of the people of the land

saying but if thou wilt give it

I pray thee hear me I will give the

money for the field take it of me

and I will bury my dead there an even

answered Abraham saying unto Him my lord

hearken unto me the land is worth four

hundred shekels of silver what does that

betwixt me and thee vary therefore thy

dead and Abraham harkened unto ephraim

and abraham wade to ephraim the silver

which he had named in the audience of

the sons of Heth four hundred shekels of

silver current money with the merchants

and the field of ephraim 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 roundabout

were made sure under Abraham for a

possession in the presence of the

children of Heth before all that went in

at the gate of his City and after this

Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the

cave of the field of Machpelah before

Mamre the same as Hebron in the land of

Canaan and the field and the cave that

is therein were made sure under Abraham

for a possession of a burying-place by

the sons of Heth chapter 24 and Abraham

was old and well stricken in age and the

Lord had blessed Abraham in all things

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 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 but thou

shalt go unto my country and to my

kindred and take a wife unto my son

Isaac and the servants 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 and Abraham

said unto Him

beware thou that thou bring not my son

thither again 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 swear 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 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 and the servant

put his hand under the thigh of Abraham

his master and swear to him concerning

that matter and the servant took 10

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 under the city of Nahor

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 and he

said O Lord God of my master Abraham

I pray thee send me good speed this day

and show kindness unto my master Abraham

behold I stand here by the well of water

and the daughters of the men of the city

come out to draw water and that had 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 has

showed kindness unto my master and it

came to pass before he had done speaking

that behold Rebekah came out who was

born of the fool

son of Milcah the wife of Nahor

Abraham's brother with her pitcher upon

her shoulder 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 and the servant ran to meet her and

said let me I pray thee drink a little

water of thy pitcher and she said drink

my lord and she hasted then let down her

pitcher upon her hand and gave him drink

and when she had done giving him drink

she said I will draw water for thy

camels also until they have done

drinking and she hasted an emptied her

pitcher into the trough and ran again

under the well to draw water and

for all his camels and the man wandering

at her held his peace to wit whether the

Lord had made his journey prosperous or

not 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 and said whose

daughter art thou tell me I pray thee is

there room in thy father's house for us

to lodge in and she said under him I am

a daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah

which she bare unto Nahor she said

moreover unto you we have both straw and

provender enough and room to lodge in

and the man bound down his head and

worshiped the Lord and he said blessed

be the Lord God of my master Abraham who

had 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 and the damsel ran and

told them of her mother's house these

things and Rebecca had a brother and his

name was Laban and Laban ran out under

the man under the well 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 under the man and behold he

stood by the camels at the well and he

said come in now blessed of the Lord

wherefore standest thou without for I

prepared the house and room for the

camels and the men came into the house

and he unguarded 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 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 and he said

I am Abraham's servant and the LORD hath

blessed my master greatly and he has

become great and he hath given him

flocks and herds and silver and gold and

menservants and maidservants and camels

and asses and Sarah my Master's wife

bear a son to my master when she was old

and unto him hath he given all that he

had

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 but thou shalt go unto my

father's house and to my kindred and

take a wife unto my son and I said unto

my master peradventure the woman will

not follow me 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 then

shalt thou be clear from this my oath

when thou comest to my kindred and if

they give not the one thou shalt be

clear for my oath and I came this day

under the well and said O Lord God of my

master Abraham if now thou do prosper my

way which I go 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 and she say to me both drink

thou and I will also draw for thy camels

that the same be the woman whom the Lord

hath appointed out for my Master's son

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 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 and I asked her and

said whose daughter art thou and she

said the daughter of the fuel nay her

son who milk a bear unto him and I put

the earring upon her face and the

bracelets upon her hands and I bowed

down my head and worshiped 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

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 then Laban and the fool

answered and said the thing proceedeth

from the Lord we cannot speak unto thee

bad or good behold

Rebekah's before the taker and go and

let her be thy masters sons wife as the

lord hath spoken and it came to pass

that when abraham's servant heard their

words he worshiped the lord bowing

himself to the earth 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 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 and her brother and

her mother said let the damsel abide

with us a few days at the least 10 after

that she shall go 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 and they said we will

call the damsel and inquire at her mouth

and they called Rebecca and said unto

her wilt thou go with this man and she

said I will go and they sent away

Rebecca their sister and her nurse and

Abraham's servant and his men and they

blessed Rebecca 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 and Rebecca arose and her damsels

and they rode upon the camels and

followed the man and the servant took

Rebecca and went his way and Isaac came

from the way of the well of Lahaie ROI

for he dwelt in the South Country 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 and

Rebecca lifted up her eyes and when she

saw Isaac she lighted off the camel 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 veil and

covered herself and the servant told

Isaac all things that he

and Isaac brought her into his mother

Sarah's tent and took Rebecca

and she became his wife and he loved her

and Isaac was comforted after his

mother's death chapter 25 then again

Abraham took a wife and her name was

Katara

and she bare him Zimmern and John Shan

and medon and Midian and ish back and

schewe and Jacques Shan began Sheba and

Eden and the sons of didn't were asharam

and lutetium and liam and the sons of

Midian Aoife and efer and hey nook and

Abidin and Aldea all these were the

children of keturah and Abraham gave all

that he had unto Isaac 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 under the east country and

these are the days of the years of

Abraham's life which he lived an hundred

threescore and fifteen years then

Abraham gave up the ghost and died in a

good old age and old man and full of

years and was gathered to his people and

his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in

the Cave of Machpelah in the field of

Ephraim the son of Zohar the Hittite

which is before Mamre the field which

Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth

there was Abraham buried and Sarah his

wife and it came to pass after the death

of Abraham that God blessed his son

isaac and isaac dwelt by the well la

high ROI now these are the generations

of Ishmael Abraham's son whom Hagar the

Egyptian Sarah's handmaid bare unto

Abraham 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 advil and

MIBs am and mish ma and Duma and massa

hadar and Timo G tor nefesh and khaddama

these are the sons of Ishmael and these

are their names by their towns and by

their castles twelve princes according

to their Nations 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 and they dwelt from

hvala unto sure that is before Egypt as

thou goest toward Assyria and he died in

the presence of all his brethren and

these are the generations of Isaac

Abraham son Abraham begat Isaac and

Isaac was 40 years old when he took

Rebekah to wife the daughter of the fool

the Syrian of Padanaram the sister to

Laban the Syrian and Isaac entreated the

Lord for his wife because she was barren

and the Lord was entreated of him and

Rebecca his wife conceived and the

children struggled together within her

and she said if it be so why am i vast

and she went to inquire of the Lord 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 and when her days to

be delivered were fulfilled behold there

were twins in her womb and the first

came out red all over like an hairy

garment and they called his name Esau

and after that came his brother out and

his hand took hold on he saws heel and

his name was called Jacob and Isaac was

threescore years old when she bare them

and the boys grew and Esau was a cunning

hunter a man of the field and Jacob was

a plain man dwelling in tents and Isaac

loved Esau because he did eat of his

venison but Rebekah loved Jacob and

Jacob saw pottage and Esau came from the

field that he was faint 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 and Jacob said sell

me this day thy birthright and Esau said

Behold I'm at the point to die and what

profit shall this birthright do to me

and Jacob said swear to me this day and

he sware unto Him and he sold his

birthright unto Jacob then Jacob gave

Esau bread and pottage of lentils and he

did eat and drink and rose up and went

his way

thus Esau despised his birthright

chapter 26 and there was a famine in the

land beside the first famine that was in

the days of Abraham and Isaac went under

a bimolecular the Philistines Undergear

are and the Lord appeared unto him and

said go not down into Egypt dwell in the

land which I shall tell thee of 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

swear unto Abraham thy father 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 because that Abraham obeyed my

voice and kept my charge my commandments

my statutes and my laws and isaac dwelt

in gr and the men of the place asked him

of his wife and he said she's my sister

for he feared to say she is my wife list

said he the men of the place should kill

me for Rebecca because she was fair to

look upon 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 Rebecca his wife and

Abimelech called Isaac and said Behold

of a surety she is thy wife and how

since thou she is my sister and Isaac

said unto him because I said blessed I

died for her and Abimelech said what is

this thou hast done unto us one of the

people might lightly have lined with thy

wife and thy shoes have brought

guiltiness upon us and Abimelech charged

all his people saying he that touches

this man or his wife shall surely be put

to death then isaac sowed in that land

and received in the same year and

hundredfold and the lord blessed him and

the man waxed great and went forward and

grew until he became very great for he

had possession of flocks and possession

of herds and great store of servants and

the Philistines envied him

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 and

Abimelech said unto Isaac go from us for

thou art much mightier than we

and Isaac departed thence and pitched

his tent in the valley of GR and welfare

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 and Isaac

servants digged in the valley and found

there a well of springing water and the

herdmen of Gerard had strife with

Isaac's herdmen saying the water is ours

and he called the name of the well Isaac

because they strove with him and they

digged another well and strove for that

also and he called the name of it Sydnor

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 and he went up from

thence to Beersheba 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 and he builded an

altar there and called upon the name of

the Lord and pitched his tent there and

there Isaac's servants dig - well then

Abimelech went to him from Giron and a

hose F one of his friends and fie call

the chief captain of his army and Isaac

said unto them wherefore come ye to me

seeing he hate me and have sent me away

from you 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 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 the away in peace

thou art now the blessed of the Lord and

he made them a feast and they did eat

and drink and they rose up betimes in

the morning and swear one to another and

Isaac sent them away and they departed

from him

in peace 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 and he called it Sheba therefore

the name of the city is Beersheba unto

this day

and Esau was forty years old when he

took to wife Judith the daughter of

bioré the Hittites and Bosch Ameth the

daughter of elon the hittite which were

a grief of mind under Isaac and to

Rebekah chapter 27 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 and he said Behold now I am

old I know not the day of my death now

therefore take I pray thee thy weapons

my quiver and I bow and go out to the

field and take me some venison and make

me savory meat such as I love and bring

it to me but I may eat that my soul may

bless me before I die and Rebekah heard

when Isaac spake to Esau his son and

Esau went to the field to hunt for

venison and to bring it and Rebekah

spake unto Jacob her son saying behold I

heard thy father's speak unto Esau thy

brother saying bring me venison and make

me savory meat that I may eat and bless

me before the Lord before my death now

therefore my son obey my voice according

to that which I command thee 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 and thou shalt to bring it to

thy father that he may eat and that he

may bless thee before his death and

Jacob said to Rebekah his mother behold

he stole my brother is a hairy man and I

am a smooth map

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 and his mother said under him

upon me be thy curse my son only obey my

voice and go fetch me them and he went

and fetched and brought them to his

mother and his mother made savory meat

such as his father loved and Rebecca

took goodly raiment of her eldest son

Esau which were with her in the house

and put them upon Jacob her younger son

and she put the skins of the kids of the

goats upon his hands and upon the smooth

of his neck and she gave the savoury

meat and the bread which she had

prepared into the hand of her son Jacob

and he came unto his father and said My

father and he said here am I who art

thou my son and Jacob said unto his

father I am Esau thy firstborn I have

done according as thou badest me arise I

pray thee sit and eat of my venison that

thy soul may bless me 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 and Isaac said unto Jacob come here I

pray thee that I may feel thee my son

whether they'll be my very son Esau or

not 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 and he discerned him

not because his hands were hairy as his

brother Esau hands so he blessed him and

he said art thou my very son Esau and he

said I am 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 and

his father Isaac said unto him come near

now and gives me my son and he came near

and kissed him and he smelled the smell

of his raiment and the blessed him and

said see the smell of my son is as the

smell of a field which the Lord has

blessed therefore

God give thee of the dew of heaven and

the fatness of the earth and plenty of

corn and wine 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 curse it be everyone

that curseth thee and blessed be he that

blesseth thee 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 and he also had made

savory meat and brought it unto his

father and said unto his father that my

father arise and eat of his son's

venison that thy soul may bless me and

Isaac his father said unto Him who art

thou and he said I am thy son thy

firstborn Esau 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

without chemists and have blessed him

yay and he shall be blessed 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 and he said my

brother came with subtlety and hath

taken away thy blessing and he said is

not he rightly named Jacob for he hath

supplanted me these two times he took

away by birthright and behold now he

hath taken away my blessing and he said

hast thou not reserved a blessing for me

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 and he saw said unto

his father as thou one blessing my

father bless me even me also o my father

and Esau lifted up his voice and wept

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 and by thy sword shalt thou

live and shalt serve thy brother and it

shall come to pass 1 thou shalt have the

Dominion but thou shalt break his yoke

from off thy neck and Esau hated Jacob

because of the blessing were with his

father blessed him and Esau said in his

heart the days of mourning for my father

are at hand and when I slay my brother

Jacob 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 now therefore my

son obey my voice and arise flee thou to

Laban my brother to Haran and tarry with

him a few days until thy brother's fury

turn away until thy brother's anger turn

away from thee and he forget that which

thou has done to him

then I will send and fetch thee from

thence why should I be deprived also of

you both in one day 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

chapter xxviii 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 arise go to

Padanaram to the house of Bethel thy

mother's father and take the away from

thence of the daughters of Laban thy

mother's brother and god almighty bless

thee and make thee fruitful and multiply

thee that thou mayst be a multitude of

people and give me the blessing of

Abraham to thee and to thy seed with

thee that thou mayst inherit the land

wherein thou art a stranger which God

gave unto Abraham and Isaac sent away

Jacob and he went to Padanaram under

Laban son of a fool the Syrian the

brother of Rebekah

Jacobsen Esau's mother when he saw 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

daughters of Canaan and the Jacob obeyed

his father and his mother and was gone

to Padanaram and he saw seeing that the

daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac

his father then when esau unto Ishmael

and took on to the wives which he had

make a laugh the daughter of Ishmael

Abraham's son the sister of Nevada off

to be his wife and Jacob went out from

Beersheba and went toward Haran and he

lighted upon a certain place and tarry

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 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 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 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 and

behold I am with thee and will keep thee

in all places whither thou goest and

we'll bring the again into this land for

I will not leave thee until I have done

that which I have spoken to the earth

and Jacob awaked out of his sleep and he

said surely the Lord is in this place

and I knew it not 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 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 and he called the name of

that place Bethel but the name of that

city was called loves at the first 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 so that I come

again to my father's house in peace then

shall the Lord be my god 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 chapter 29 then Jacob went on

his journey and came into the land of

the people of the east 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 wanted the

flocks and the great stone was upon the

wells mouth and thither were all the

flocks gathered and they rolled the

stone from the wells mouth and watered

the sheep and put the stone again upon

the wells mouth in his place and Jacob

said unto them my brethren whence be and

they said of Haran are we and he said

unto them know ye Laban the son of Nahor

and they said we know him and he said

unto them is he well and they said he is

well and behold Rachel his daughter

cometh with the sheep and he said blows

is yet high day neither is it time that

the cattle should be gathered together

whoa te the sheep and go and feed them

and they said we cannot until all the

flocks be gathered together until they

roll the stone from the wells mouth then

we wanted the Sheep and while he yet

spake with them Rachel came with her

father's sheep for she kept them 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 wells mouth and

wanted the flock of Laban his mother's

brother and Jacob kissed Rachel and

lifted up his voice and wept and Jacob

told Rachel that he was her father's

brother and that he was Rebecca's son

and she ran and told her father 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 and

Laban said to him surely thou art my

Pole and my flash and he abode with him

the space of a month and Laban said unto

Jacob because thou art my brother

shoulda stopped there for serve me for

not tell me what shall thy wages be and

Laban had two daughters the name of the

elder was Leah and the name of the

younger was Rachel leah was tender eyed

but Rachel was beautiful and well

favored and Jacob loved Rachel and said

I will serve the seven years for Rachel

thy younger daughter and Laban said it

is better that I give her to thee then

that I should give her to another man

abide with me and Jacob served seven

years for Rachel and they seemed unto

him but a few days for the love he had

to her and Jacob said unto Laban

give me my wife for my days are

fulfilled that I may go in unto her and

Laban gathered together all the men of

the place and made a feast 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 and Laban gave unto

his daughter Leah Zilpah has made for a

handmaid 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 and

Laban said it must not be so done in our

to give the younger before the firstborn

fulfill her week and we will give the

this household for the service which

thou shalt serve with me yet seven of

the years and Jacob did so and fulfilled

her week and he gave him Rachel his

daughter to wife also and Laban gave to

Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid

to be her maid and he went in also unto

Rachel and he loved also Rachel more

than Leah and served with him yet seven

other years and when the Lord saw that

leah was hated he opened her womb but

Rachel was barren and Leah conceived and

bare a son and she called his name

Reuben for she said surely the Lord

hadn't looked upon my affliction and how

therefore my husband will love me and

she conceived again and bare a son and

said because the Lord has heard that I

was hated he had therefore given me this

son also and she called his name Simeon

and she conceived again and bare a son

and said now this time will my husband

be joined unto me because I have borne

him three sons therefore was his name

called Levi 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 chapter 30

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

and Jacobs anger was kindled against

Rachel and he said am I in God's stead

who has withheld from thee the fruit of

the womb 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 and she gave him Bilhah

her handmaid to wife and Jacob went in

unto her and Billo conceived and bare

Jacob a son and Rachel said God hath

judged me and have also heard my voice

and hath given me a son therefore called

she has named Anne and Bilhah Rachel's

maid conceived again and bare Jacob a

second son and Rachel said with great

wrestling's have I wrestled with my

sister and I have prevailed and she

called his name naphtha lie when Leah

saw that she had left bearing she took

Zilpah her maid and gave her Jacob to

wife and Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a

son and Leah said

troupe cometh and she called his name

GAD and Zilpah Leah's made their Jacob a

second son and Leah said happy and my

for the daughters will call me blessed

and she called his name Asher and Reuben

went in the days of wheat harvest and

found Mandrax in the field and brought

them unto his mother leah then Rachel

said to Leah give me I pray thee of thy

sons Mandrake's and she said unto her is

it a small matter that thou has taken my

husband and what does thou take away my

sons Mandrake's also and Rachel said

therefore he shall lie with thee tonight

for thy sons Mandrake's and Jacob came

out of the field in the evening and Leah

went out to meet him and said that was

coming on to me for surely I have hired

thee with my sons Mandrake's and he lay

with her that night and God hearkened

unto Leah and she conceived and bare

Jacob the fifth son and Leah said God

hath given me my hire because I have

given my maiden to my husband and she

called his name is a car and Leah

conceived again and bare Jacob the sixth

son and Leah said God hath endued me

with a good dowry now my husband dwell

with me because I have borne him six

sons and she called his name Zebulon and

afterwards she bare a daughter and

called her name Dinah and God remembered

Rachel and God hearkened to her and

opened her womb and she conceived and

bare a son and said God hath taken away

my reproach and she called his name

Joseph's fence and the Lord shall add to

me another son and it came to pass when

Rachel had borne Joseph that Jacob said

unto Laban send me away that I may go

unto my own place and to my country 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 and Laban said unto him I pray thee

if I have found favor in thine eyes

Terry if I have learned by experience

that the LORD hath blessed me for thy

sake and he said appoint me thy wages

and I will give it and he said unto Him

thou knowest how I have served thee and

how thy cattle was with me for it was

little which thou hast before I came and

it is now increased unto a multitude and

the LORD hath blessed

see since my coming and now when shall I

provide for mine own house also and he

said what shall I give thee and Jacob

said thou shalt not give me anything if

thou wilt do this thing for me I will

again feed and keep thy flock I will

pass through all thy flock today

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 if such

shall be my hire so shall my

righteousness answer for me in time to

come when it shall come for my hire

before thy face everyone that he's not

speckled and spotted among the goats and

brown among the sheep that shall be

counted stolen with me and Laban said

Behold I would it might be according to

thy word and he removed that day the he

goats that were rings tricked 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 and he set three days

journey betwixt himself and Jacob and

Jacob fed the rest of Levens flocks and

Jacob took him rods of green poplar and

of the hazel and chestnut tree and

pilled white streaks in them and made

the white appear which was in the rods

and he set the rods which he had peeled

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 and the flocks

conceived before the rods and brought

forth cattle ringstraked speckled and

spotted 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 on the

label's cattle and it came to pass when

so ever 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 but when

the cattle were feeble he put them not

in so the feebler were Laban and the

stronger jacob's and the man increased

exceedingly and had much cattle and

maidservants and men servants and camels

and asses

chapter 31 and he heard the words of

Laban sons saying Jacob hath taken away

all that was our fathers and of that

which was our fathers have he gotten all

this glory and Jacob beheld the

countenance of Laban and behold it was

not toward him as before and the Lord

said unto Jacob return unto the land of

thy father's and to thy kindred and I

will be with thee and Jacob sent and

called Rachel and Leah to the field

under his flock 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 and he know

that with all my power I have served

your father and your father hath

deceived me

and changed my wages ten times but God

suffered him not to hurt me if he said

thus the speckled shall be thy wages

then all the cattle bear speckled and if

he said thus the Rings Strike shall be

thy hire then bear all the cattle

ringstraked thus God hath taken away the

cattle of your father and given them to

me 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 grizzled

and the angel of God spake unto me in a

dream saying Jacob and I said here am I

and he said lift up now thine eyes and

see all the rams which sleep upon the

cattle are ringstraked speckled and

grizzled for I have seen all that Laban

doeth unto thee I am the god of Bethel

where thou anointed the pillar and where

their vow it's a vow unto me now arise

get thee out from this land and return

unto the land of thy kindred and Rachel

and Leah answered and said unto Him

there yet any portion or inheritance for

us in our father's house

are we not counted of him strangers for

he hath sold us and have quite devoured

also our money for all the riches which

God has taken from our Father that is

ours and our children's now then

whatsoever God hath said unto thee do

then Jacob rose up and sent his sons and

his wives upon camels and he carried

away all his cattle and all his Goods

which he had gotten the cattle of his

getting which he had gotten Padanaram

for to go to Isaac his father in the

land of Canaan and Laban went to share

his sheep and Rachel had stolen the

images that were her father's and Jacob

stole away unawares to Laban the Syrian

in that he told him not that he fled 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 and it was

told Laban on the third day that Jacob

was fled and he took his brethren with

him and pursued after him seven days

journey and they overtook him in the

Mount Gilead 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

then Laban overtook Jacob now Jacob had

pitched his tent in the mount and Laban

with his brethren pitched in the Mount

of Gilead and Laban said to Jacob what

hast thou done that thou has stolen away

unawares to me and carried away my

daughters as captives taken with the

sword 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

tab written with harp and hast not

suffered me to kiss my sons and my

daughters thou has now done foolishly

and so doing 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 and now though

thou wouldest needs be gone because thou

saw'st longest after thy father's house

yet wherefore hast thou stolen my gods

and Jacob answered and said to Laban

because I was afraid for I said

a venture that would is take by force

they daughters from me with whomsoever

thou findest thy God's let him not live

before our brethren discerned thou what

is thine with me and take it to thee for

Jacob knew not that Rachel had stolen

them and Laban went into jacob's tent

and into Leah's tent and into the two

made servants tents but he found them

not then when he out of Leah's tent and

entered into Rachel's tent now Rachel

had taken the images and put them in the

camels furniture and sat upon them and

Laban searched all the tent but found

them not 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 with

founds not the images and Jacob was

wroth and showed with Laban and Jacob

answered and said to Laban what is my

trespass what is my sin that thou has so

hotly pursued after me whereas thou has

searched all my stuff what hast thou

found of all thy household stuff said it

here before my brethren and thy brethren

that they may judge betwixt us both this

twenty years have I been with thee thy

use and thy she-goats

have not cast their young and the rams

of thy flock have I not eaten that which

was torn of beasts

I brought not unto thee I bear the loss

of it of my hand didst our choir where

the stolen by day or stolen by night

thus I was in the day the drought

consume me and the frost by night and my

sleep departed from mine eyes thus have

I been 20 years in thy house I served

the 14 years for thy two daughters and

six years for thy cattle and thou has

changed my wages ten times except the

God of my father the God of Abraham and

the fear of Isaac had been with me

surely thou had sent me away now empty

God hath seen my affliction and a labor

of my hands and rebuked the yesternight

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 into these my daughters or unto

their children which they have borne now

therefore come now let us make a

covenant and thou and let it be for a

witness between me and thee and Jacob

took a stone and set it up for a pillar

and Jacob said unto his brethren gather

stands and they took stones had made an

heap and they did eat there upon the

heap and Laban called it Jigar say

adutha but Jacob called it Galliard and

Laban said this heap is a witness

between me and thee this day therefore

was the name of it called Galliard and

Mizpah for he said the Lord watch

between me and thee when we are absent

one from another 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 between me and

thee and Laban said to Jacob behold this

heap and behold this pillar which I've

cast betwixt me and thee 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 of

God of Abraham and the god of nahor the

God of their father

judge betwixt us and Jacob swear by the

fear of his father Isaac 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 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

chapter 32 and Jacob went on his way and

the angels of God met him and when Jacob

saw him he said this is God's host and

he called the name of that place maewnam

and Jacob sent messengers before him to

Esau his brother unto the land of Seir

the country of Edom and he commanded

them saying thus shall you speak unto my

lord Esau thy servant Jacob saith thus I

have star joined with Laban and stayed

there until now

and I have oxen and asses flops and men

servants and women servants and I have

sent to tell my Lord that I may find

grace in my sight and the messengers

return to Jacob saying we came to thy

brother Esau and also he cometh to meet

thee and four hundred men with him 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 and said if he

soul come to the one company in smite

ease then the other company which is

left shall escape and Jacob said o God

of my father Abraham and God of my

father Isaac the Lord which said unto me

return unto thy country and to thy

kindred and I will deal well with thee I

am not worthy of the least of all the

mercies and of all the truth which thou

has showed unto thy servant for with my

staff I passed over this Jordan and now

I am become two bands 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 and our said I will

surely do thee good and make thy seed as

the sand of the sea which cannot be

numbered for multitude and he lodged

there that same night and took of that

which came to his hand a present for

Esau his brother

two hundred she-goats and 20 he goats

two hundred ewes and twenty Rams

thirty milk camels with their Colts

forty kine and ten bulls twenty she

asses and ten foals 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 and he

commanded the foremost saying when he

saw my brother meat earthy and asketh

thee saying whose art thou and whither

goest thou and who have these before

thee the end though shalt say they be

thy servant Jacobs it is a present sent

unto my lord Esau and behold

also he is behind us and so commanded II

the second and the

third and all that followed the droves

saying on this man I shall ye speak unto

Esau when you find him and say ye

moreover behold thy servant Jacob is

behind us for you 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 so

went the present over before him and

himself lodged that night in the company

and he rose up that night and took his

two wives and his two women servants and

his eleven sons and passed over the four

Jabbok and he took them and set them

over the brook and sent over that he

hand and Jacob was left alone and there

wrestled a man with him until the

breaking of the day 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 and he said let me go

for the day breaketh and he said I will

not let thee go except thou bless me and

he said unto Him what is thy name

and he said Jacob 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 has prevailed and Jacob asked him

and said tell me I pray thee thy name

and II said wherefore is it that thou

dust ask after my name and he blessed

him there and Jacob called the name of

the place Peniel

for I have seen God face to face and my

life is preserved and as he passed over

Penuel the Sun rose upon him and he

halted upon his thigh therefore the

children of Israel eat not of the sinew

which shrank which is upon the hollow of

the thigh under this day because he

touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh in

the sinew that shrank chapter 33 and

Jacob lifted up his eyes and looked and

behold Esau came and with him four

hundred men and he divided the children

under Leah and under Rachel and under

the two handmaids and he put the hand

mades in their children foremost and

Leah and her children after and Rachel

and Joseph hindmost

and he passed over before them and bowed

himself to the ground seven times until

he came near to his brother and Esau ran

to meet him and embraced him and fell on

his neck and kissed him and they wept

and he lifted up his eyes and saw the

women and the children and said who are

those worthy and he said the children

which God hath graciously given my

servant then the handmaidens came near

they and their children and they bowed

themselves and Leah also with her

children came near and bowed themselves

and after came Joseph near and Rachel

and they bowed themselves 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 and

Esau said I have enough my brother keep

that thou hast unto thyself 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 was pleased with me

taking 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

and he said let us take our journey and

let us go and I will go before thee and

he said unto Him my lord knoweth that

they children attender and the flocks

and herds with young are with me and if

men should over drive them one day all

the flock will die let my lord I pray

thee Passover 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 and Esau said let

me now leave with the some of the folk

that are with me and he said what need

is it let me find grace in the sight of

my lord so ease re turned that day on

his way to see her and Jacob journeyed

to Succoth and built him in house and

made booths for his cattle therefore the

name of the place is called Sukkoth and

Jacob came to Shalem a city of Shechem

which is in the land of Canaan when he

came from

and pitched his tent before the city and

he brought a parcel of a field where he

had spread his tent at the hand of the

children of hay more Shechem father 400

pieces of money and he erected there an

altar and called @ll oh hey Israel

chapter 34 and Dinah the daughter of

Leah which she bare unto Jacob went out

to see the daughters of the land and

when Shechem the son of Haymore the

hivite prince of the country saw her he

took her and lay with her and defiled

her and his soul clayvin to Dinah the

daughter of Jacob and he loved the

damsel and spake kindly unto the damsel

and Shechem spake unto his father

Haymore saying get me this damsel to

wife and Jacob heard that he had to file

Dinah his daughter now his sons were

with his cattle in the field and Jacob

held his peace until they were come and

Haymore the father Shechem went out unto

Jacob to commune with him and the sons

of Jacob came out of the field when they

heard it and the men were grieved and

they were very rough because he had

wrought folly in Israel in lying with

Jacobs daughter which they ought not to

be done and Haymore communed with them

saying the soul of my son Shechem

longeth for your daughter

I pray you give her him to wife and make

you marriages with us and give your

daughters unto us and take our daughters

unto you and ye shall dwell with us and

the land shall be before you dwell and

trade ye therein and get you possessions

therein 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 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 and the sons of Jacob

answered Shechem and Hamor his father

deceitfully and said because he had to

file Dinah their sister and they said

unto them we cannot do this thing to

give our sister to one that is

uncircumcised for that world reproach

unto us but in this what we can send

unto you

if you will be as we be that every male

of you be circumsized 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

but if you will not hearken unto us to

be circumcised then will we take our

daughter and we will be gone and their

words pleased Haymore and Shechem

Haymore son 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 and Haymore and Shechem his

son came unto the gate of their City and

communed with the men of their City

saying 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 4 wives and let us give

them our daughters 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

shall not their cattle and their

substance and every beast of theirs be

ours only let us consent unto them and

they will dwell with us and under

Haymore a nun to 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 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 and they slew Haymore and

Shechem his son with the edge of the

sword and took Dinah out of Chekhov's

house and went out the sons of Jacob

came upon the slain and spoiled the city

because they had defiled their sister

they took their sheep and their oxen and

their asses and that which was in the

city and that which was in the field and

all their wealth and all their little

ones and their wives took they captive

and spoiled even all that was in the

house 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 earned my

house and they said should he deal with

our sister as with an harlot chapter 35

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 fled us from the face of Esau

thy brother 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 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 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 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

so Jacob came to laws which is in the

land of Canaan that is Bethel he and all

the people that were with him and he

built there an altar and called the

place el Bethel because their God

appeared unto him when he fled from the

face of his brother but Deborah

Rebecca's nurse died and she was buried

beneath Bethel under an oak and the name

of it was called Alan bhagath and God

appeared unto Jacob again when he came

out of Padanaram and blessed him 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 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 and the land which I gave

Abraham and Isaac to thee I will give it

and to thy seed after the

will I give the land and God went up

from him in the place where he talked

with him 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 their own and he poured oil

thereon and Jacob called the name of the

place where God spake with him Bethel

and they journeyed from Bethel and there

was about a little way to come to F

wrath and Rachel travail and she had

hard labor and it came to pass when she

was in hard labor that the midwife said

unto her fear not thou shalt have this

son also and it came to pass as her soul

was in departing for she died that she

called his name Ben own eye but his

father called him Benjamin and Rachel

died and was buried in the way to F

wrath which is Bethlehem and Jacob said

a pillar upon her grave that is the

pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day

and Israel journeyed and spread his tent

beyond the tower of Eder

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 12

the sons of Leah reuben Jacob's

firstborn and Simeon and Levi and Judah

father unto Mamre under the city of Arba

which is hebron where abraham and isaac

sojourned and the days of isaac were in

hundred and four score years 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

[ __ ]

chapter 37 and Jacob dwelt in the land

were in his father was a stranger in the

land of Canaan these are the generations

of Jacob Joseph being 17 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 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 colors

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 and Joseph

dreamed a dream and he told it his

brethren and they hated him yet the more

and he said unto them here I pray you

this dream which I had dreamed 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 and his brethren said unto him

shout 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 and he dreamed

yet another dream and told it his

brethren and said behold I had dreamed a

dream more and behold the Sun and the

moon and the Eleven stars made obeisance

to me 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 the

II to the earth and his brethren envied

him but his father observed the saying

and his brethren went to feed their

father's flock in Shechem and Israel

said unto Joseph do not die brethren

feed the flock in Shechem come and I

will send thee unto them and he said to

him here am I and he said to him go I

pray thee see whether it be well with I

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 and a certain man found him and

behold he was wandering in the field and

the man asked him saying what seekest

thou and he said I seek my brethren tell

me I pray thee where they feed their

flocks 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

and when they saw him afar off even

before he came near unto them they

conspired against him to slay him and

they said one to another behold this

dreamer cometh come now therefore and

let us slay him and cast him into some

pit and we will say some evil beast had

devoured him and we shall see what will

become of his dreams and Rubin heard it

and he delivered him out of their hands

and said let us not kill him 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 not of their hands to

deliver him to his father again and it

came to pass when Joseph was come unto

his brethren that they stripped Joseph

out of his coat his coat of many colors

that was on him and they took him and

cast him into a pit and the pit was

empty there was no water in it and they

sat down to eat bread and they lifted up

their eyes and looked and behold a

company of Ishmaelites came from Gilead

with their camels bearing spicery and

balm and myrrh going to carry it down to

Egypt and Judah said unto his brethren

what profit is it if we slay our brother

and conceal his blood come and let us

sell him to the Ishmaelites and let not

our hand be upon him for he is our

brother and our flesh and his brethren

were content then there passed by

Midianites merchants been and they drew

and lifted up joseph out of the pit and

sold joseph to the issue my lights for

twenty pieces of silver and they brought

Joseph into Egypt and Reuben returned

unto the pit had behold Joseph was not

in the pit and he rent his clothes and

he returned unto his brethren and said

the child is not and I whether shall I

go and they took Joseph's coat and

killed a kid of the goats and dipped the

coat in the blood and they sent the coat

of many colours and they brought it to

their father and said this have we found

no now whether it be thy sons coat or no

and he knew it and said it is my son's

coat

an evil beast hath to vowed him Joseph

is without doubts rent in pieces and

Jacob rent his clothes and put sackcloth

upon his loins and mourned for his son

many days 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 and the Midianites sold him into

Egypt under Potiphar an officer of

Pharaohs and captain of the guard

chapter 38 and it came to pass at that

time that Judah went down from his

brethren and turned into a certain adult

imide whose name was Huayra and judah

saw there a daughter of a certain

Canaanite whose name was schewe and he

took her and went in unto her and she

conceived and bare a son and he called

his name her and she conceived again and

bare a son and she called his name Onan

and she yet again conceived in bear a

son and called his name Sheila and he

was at keesom when she bare him and

Judah took a wife for her his firstborn

whose name was Tamar and urge you

disbursed born was wicked in the sight

of the Lord and the Lord slew him and

Judah said unto Onan go in unto thy

brother's wife and marry her and raise

up seed to thy brother and all and knew

that the seed should not be his and it

came to pass when he went in under his

brother's wife that he spilled it on the

ground lest that he should give seed to

his brother and the thing which he did

displease the Lord wherefore he slew him

also then said Judah to Tamar his

daughter-in-law remain a widow at thy

father's house to Sheila 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 and in

process of time the daughter of shua

Judah's wife died and Judah was

comforted and went up unto his sheep

shearers to Timnath he and his friend

ira the ado low might and it was told

Tamar saying behold thy father-in-law

goeth up to Timnath to share his sheep

and she put her widows garments off from

her and covered her with a veil and

wrapped herself and sat in an open place

which is by the way to Tim Neph for she

saw that Sheila was groaned and she was

not given unto him to wife when Judah

saw her he thought her to be in harlot

because she had covered her face

he turned under 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 would

that give me that thou mayst coming unto

me 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 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 and she

arose and went away and laid by her veil

from her and put on the garments of her

widowhood and Judah sent the kid by the

hand of his friend the ado lamine to

receive his pledge from the woman's hand

but he found her not then he asked the

men of that place saying where is the

harlot that was openly by the wayside

and they said there was no harlot in

this place 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 and Judah said let

her take it to her lest we be shamed

behold I sent this kid and thou hast not

found her and it came to pass about

three months after that it was told

Judah saying tomorrow a 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 when she was brought forth she

sent to her father-in-law saying by the

man whose these are mi with child and

she said discern I pray thee whose are

these the signet and bracelets and staff

and Judah acknowledged them and said she

hath been more righteous than I because

that I gave her not to Sheila my son and

he knew her again no more and it came to

pass in the time of her travail that

behold twins were in her womb and it

came to pass when she prevailed that the

one put out his hand and the Midwife

took and bound upon his hand a scarlet

thread saying this came out first and it

came to pass as he drew back his hand

that behold his brother came out and she

said how has that broken fourth this

breach be upon thee therefore his name

was called Farrah's and afterward came

out his brother that had the scarlet

thread upon his hand and his name was

called Zahra

chapter 39 and Joseph was brought down

to Egypt and Potiphar an officer of

Pharaoh captain of the guard and

Egyptian bought him of the hands of the

Ishmaelites which had brought him down

to there and the Lord was with Joseph

and he was a prosperous man and he was

in the house of his master the Egyptian

and his master saw that the Lord was

with him and that the Lord made all that

he did to prosper in his hand 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 and 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 Egyptians house for

Joseph's sake and the blessing of the

Lord was upon all that he had in the

house and in the field and he left all

that he had in Joseph's hand and he knew

not all he had saved the bread which he

did eat and Joseph was a goodly person

and well favoured and it came to pass

after these things that his master's

wife cast her eyes upon Joseph and she

said why but he refused and said unto

his master's wife behold my master what

if not what is with me in the house and

he had committed all that he hath to my

hand

there was none greater in this house

than I neither and he kept back anything

from me but thee because thou art his

wife how then can I do this great

wickedness and sin against God 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 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 and she caught him by his

garment saying lie with me and he left

his garment in her hand and fled and

caught him out and it came to pass when

she saw that he had left his garment in

her hand and was fled forth that she

called unto the men of her house and

spake unto them saying see he has

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 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 and she

laid up his garment by her until his

Lord came home and she spake unto him

according to these words say

the hebrew servant which thou has

brought unto us came in unto me to mock

me and it came to pass as I lifted up my

voice and cried as he left his garment

with me and fled out 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 and joseph's

master took him and put him into the

prison a place where the Kings prisoners

were bound and he was there in the

prison but the Lord was with Joseph and

showed him mercy and gave him favor in

the sight of the keeper of the prison

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 the

keeper of the prison looked not to

anything that was under his hand because

the Lord was with him and that which he

did the Lord made it to prosper chapter

40 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 and Pharaoh was

wroth against two of his officers

against the chief of the butler's and

against the chief of the Baker's and he

put them in Ward in the house of the

captain of the guard into the prison the

place where Joseph was bound and the

captain of the guard charged Joseph with

them and he served them and they

continued a season in Ward 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 and Joseph came in unto them in

the morning and looked upon them and

behold they were sad and he asked

Pharaoh's officers that were with him in

the war of his Lord's house saying

wherefore look he so sadly today 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 and the chief Butler

told his dream to Joseph and said to him

in my dream behold a vine was before me

and in the vine were three branches and

it was as though it butted and her

blossom shut forth and the clusters

thereof brought forth the ripe grapes

and Pharaohs 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 and Joseph said unto Him

this is the interpretation of

the three branches are three days yet

within three days shall ferrell lift up

thine head and restore the end to thy

place and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh's

cup into his hand after the former

manner when thou West his Butler but

think on me when it shall be well with

thee and show kindness I pray thee unto

me and make mention of me unto Pharaoh

and bring me out of this house 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 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 and

in the uppermost basket there was of all

manner of baked meats for Pharaoh and

the birds did eat them out of the basket

upon my head and Joseph answered and

said this is the interpretation thereof

the three baskets are three days 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 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 and he restored

the chief Butler unto his butler ship

again and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's

hand but he hanged the chief Baker as

Joseph had interpreted to them yet did

not the chief Butler remember Joseph but

forget him chapter 41 and it came to

pass at the end of two full years that

Pharaoh dreamed and behold he stood by

the river and beholder came up out of

the river seven well-favored kine and

fat fleshed and they fed in a meadow and

behold seven other kine came up after

them out of the river ill-favored and

lean fleshed and stood by the other kind

upon the brink of the river and the hill

favorite and lean fleshed kind did eat

up the seven well-favored and fat kine

so Pharaoh awoke and he slept and

dreamed the second time and behold seven

ears of corn came up upon one stalk rank

and good and behold seven thin ears and

blasted with the east wind sprung up

after them and the seventh in ears

devour the seven Ranken

layers and favor awoke and behold it was

a dream

and it came to pass in the morning that

his spirit was troubled and he sent and

called for all the magician's of Egypt

and all the wise men thereof and Pharaoh

told them his dream but there was none

that could interpret them unto Pharaoh

then spake the chief Butler unto Pharaoh

saying I do remember my faults this day

Pharaoh was wroth with his servants and

put me in Ward in the captain of the

guards house both me and the chief Baker

and we dreamed a dream in one night I

and he we dreamed each man according to

the interpretation of his dream and

there was there with us a young man and

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 and it

came to pass as he interpreted to us so

it was me he restored into my office and

him he hanged 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 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 and

Joseph answered Pharaoh saying it is not

in me God shall give Pharaoh an answer

of peace and Pharaoh said unto Joseph in

my dream behold I stood upon the bank of

the river and behold there came up out

of the river seven kine sat fleshed and

well favored and they fed in a meadow

and behold seven other kine came up

after them pour and bury ill-favored and

lean fleshed such as I never saw in all

the land of Egypt for badness and the

lean and the ill-favored kind did eat up

the first seven fat kine and when they

had eaten them up it could not be known

that they had eaten them but they were

still ill-favored as at the beginning so

I awoke and I saw in my dream and behold

seven ears came up in one stalk full and

good and behold seven ears withered thin

and blasted with the east wind sprung up

after

and the thin ears devoured the seven

good ears and I told this under the

magician's but there was none that could

declare it to me and Joseph said unto

Pharaoh the dream of Pharaoh is one god

hath showed Pharaoh what he is about to

do the seven good kine are seven years

and the seven good ears are seven years

the dream is one and the seventh in an

ill-favored kind that came up after them

are seven years and the seven empty ears

blasted with the east wind shall be

seven years of famine this is the thing

which I have spoken unto Pharaoh what

God is about to do he show it unto

Pharaoh behold there comes seven years

of great plenty throughout all the land

of Egypt 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 and the Plenty shall not be known

in the land by reason of that famine

following for it shall be very Grievous

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 now therefore let

ferrell look out a man discreet and wise

and set him over the land of Egypt 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 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 and that food shall be first or

to the land against the seven years of

famine which shall be in the land of

Egypt that the land perished not through

the famine and the thing was good in the

eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all

his servants and Pharaoh said unto his

servants can we find such a one as this

is a man in whom the Spirit of God is

and Pharaoh said unto Joseph for as much

as God hath showed thee all this there

is none so discreet and wise as thou art

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 and Pharaoh said

unto Joseph see I have set the over

all the land of Egypt and Pharaoh took

off his ring from his hand and put it

upon Joseph's hand and arrayed him

investors of fine linen and put a gold

chain about his neck 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 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 and Pharaoh called

Joseph's name

zaphenath-paneah and he gave him to wife

Asenath the daughter of Pettifer a

priest of on and Joseph went out over

all the land of Egypt and Joseph was 30

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 and in

the seven plenteous years the earth

brought forth by handfuls 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 and

Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the

sea very much until he left numbering

for it was without number and unto

Joseph were born two sons before the

years of famine came which S&F the

daughter of Pettifer a priest of on bare

unto him 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 and the name of the

second call to Ephraim for God hath

caused me to be fruitful in the land of

my affliction and the seven years of

plenty estas that was in the land of

Egypt were ended and the seven years of

dearth began to come according as Joseph

had said and that earth was in all lands

but in all the land of Egypt there was

bread 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 and the famine was over all

the face of the earth and Joseph opened

all the storehouses and sold under the

Egyptians and the famine wax sore in the

land of Egypt and all countries came

into Egypt to Joseph or to buy corn

because that the famine was so sore in

all land

chapter 42 now when Jacob saw that there

was corn in Egypt Jacob said unto his

sons why do you look one upon another

and he said behold I have heard that

there is corn in Egypt get you down

vivir and by for us from thence that we

may live and not die and Joseph's 10

brethren went down to buy corn in Egypt

but Benjamin Joseph's brother Jacob sent

not with his brethren for he said lest

peradventure mischief befall him and the

sons of Israel came to buy corn among

those that came for the famine was in

the land of Canaan 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 and Joseph saw his

brethren and he knew them but made

himself strange unto them men speak

roughly unto them and he said unto them

whence come ye and they said from the

land of Canaan to buy food and Joseph

knew his brethren but they knew not him

and Joseph remembered the dreams which

he dreamed of them and said unto them

ears spies to see that nakedness the

land here come and they said unto him

nay my lord but to buy food are thy

servants come we are all one man's sons

we are true men thy servants are no

spies and he said unto them nay but to

see the nakedness of the land he are

come 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 and Joseph said unto them

that is it that I spake unto you saying

ye are spies hereby ye shall be proved

by the life of Pharaoh he shall not go

forth hence except your youngest brother

come hither 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 farallon's surely ye

are spies and he put them all together

into Ward three days and Joseph said

unto them the third

day.this do and live for I fear God if

you be true men let one of your brethren

be bound in the house of your prison

go ye tarry corn for the famine of your

houses but bring your youngest brother

unto me so shall your words be verified

and ye shall not die and they did so 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

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 and they knew not that Joseph

understood them for he spake unto them

by an interpreter 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 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 and they laid

their asses with the corn and departed

thence and as one of them opened his

sack to give his ass profit or in the

end he aspired his money for behold it

was in his sacks mouth 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 had

done unto us and they came unto Jacob

their father unto the land of Canaan and

told him all that befell unto them

saying the man who is the lord of the

land spake roughly to us and took us for

spies of the country and we said unto

him we are true men we are no spies 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

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 begone

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

traffic in the land 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 and Jacob their father said unto

them may he have ye bereaved of my

children Joseph is not and Simeon is not

and you will take Benjamin away all

these things are against me 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 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 chapter 43 and the

famine was sore in the land 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

pious a little food 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 if thou

wilt send our brother with us we will go

down and buy the food 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 and

Israel said wherefore dealt he so ill

with me

has to tell the man whether he had yet a

brother and they said the man asked us

straightly of our state and of our

kindred saying is your father yet alive

have you 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 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 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 forever for except we had

lingered surely now we had returned this

second time 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 bomb and a little honey

spices and myrrh nuts and almonds

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 take also your brother and

arise go again unto the man

and god almighty give you mercy before

the man that he may send away your other

brother and Benjamin if I be believed of

my children I am bereaved 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 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 and the man did as

Joseph bade and the man brought the men

into Joseph's house 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 bondman and our

asses and they came near to the steward

of Joseph's house and they commune with

him at the door of the house and said oh

sir we came indeed down at the first

time to buy food 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 and other money have

we brought down in our hands to buy food

we cannot tell who put our money in our

sacks and he said peace be to you fear

not your God and the god of your father

has given you treasure in your sacks I

had your money and he brought Simeon out

unto them and the man brought the men

into Joseph's house and gave them water

and they washed their feet and he gave

their asses preventor and they made

ready the present against Joseph came at

noon for they heard that they should eat

bread there 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 and he

asked them of their welfare and said is

your father well the old man who

nice fake is he yet alive and they

answered thy servant our Father is in

good health he is yet alive and they

bowed down their heads and made

obeisance and he lifted up his eyes and

saw his brother Benjamin his mother's

son and said is this your younger

brother of whom he spake unto me and he

said God be gracious unto thee my son

and Joseph made haste for his bowels did

yearn upon his brother and he sought

were to weep and he entered into his

chamber and wept there and he washed his

face and went out and refrained himself

and said sat on bread 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 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 and he took

and sent meses unto them from before him

but Benjamin's mess was 5 times so much

as any of theirs and they drank and were

merry with him chapter 44 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 sacks mouth and put

my cup the silver cup in the sacks mouth

of the youngest and his corn money and

he did according to the word that Joseph

had spoken as soon as the morning was

light the men were sent away they and

their asses 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 that dust overtake them

say unto them wherefore have ye rewarded

evil for good is not this it in which my

lord drinketh and whereby indeed she

divideth ye have done evil in so doing

and he overtook them and he spake unto

them these same words and they said unto

Him wherefore saith my lord these words

god forbid that thy servant should do

according to this thing 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 their Lord's house silver or gold

with whomsoever of thy servants it be

found both let him die and we

so we'll be mylord's bondman 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

then they speedily took down every man

his sack to the ground and opened every

man his sack and he searched and began

at the eldest and left at the youngest

and the cup was found in Benjamin sack

then they rent their clothes and laded

every man his ass and returned to the

city and Judah and his brethren came to

Joseph's house for he was yet there and

they fell before him on the ground and

Joseph said unto them what deed is this

that you've done what he not that such a

man as I can certainly divine 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 Lords servants both we and he also

with whom the cup is found 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 then

Judah came near under him and said o my

lord let thy servant I pray thee speak a

word in my Lord's ears and let not find

anger burn against thy servant for thou

art even as Pharaoh my Lord asked his

servants saying have ye a father or a

brother 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 and thou

settest unto thy servants bring him down

unto me that I may set my eyes upon him

and we said unto my lord the lad cannot

leave his father for if he should leave

his father his father would die and now

said stun to thy servants except your

youngest brother come down with you ye

shall see my face no more and it came to

pass when we came up unto thy servant my

father we told in the words of my lord

and our father said go again and buy us

a little food 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 and thy servant my

father said unto us ye know that my wife

bear me two sons and the one went out

from me and I said surely he is torn in

pieces and I saw him not since and if

you take this also from me and mischief

befall him you shall bring down my gray

hairs with sorrow to the grave

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

lads life 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 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

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 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 chapter 45 then

Joseph could not refrain himself before

all them that stood by him and he cried

cause every man to go out for me and

there stood no man with him while Joseph

made himself known unto his

and he wept aloud and the Egyptians and

the house of Pharaoh heard and Joseph

said unto his brethren I am Joseph that

my father yet live and his brethren

could not answer him for they were

troubled at his presence 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 he sold into

Egypt

now therefore be not grieved nor angry

with yourselves that ye sold me Heather

for God did send me before you to

preserve life for these two years have

the famine been in the land and yet

there are five years in the which there

shall neither be earring nor harvest and

God sent me before you to preserve you a

posterity in the earth and to save your

lives by a great deliverance 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 haste

ye and go up to my father and say unto

Him thus saith I son Joseph God hath

made me Lord of all Egypt come down unto

me tarry not 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 I

herds and all that thou hast and there

will I nourish thee for yet there are

five years of famine blessed thou and

thy household and all that thou hast

come to poverty

and behold your eyes see and the eyes of

my brother Benjamin that it is my mouth

that speaketh unto you and he shall tell

my father of all my glory in Egypt and

of all that ye have seen and he shall

haste and bring down my father hither

and he fell upon his brother Benjamin's

neck and wept and Benjamin wept upon his

neck moreover he kissed all his brethren

and wept upon them and after that his

brethren talked with him and the fame

thereof was heard in Pharaoh's house

saying

josephs brethren are come and it pleased

Pharaoh well and his servants and

Pharaoh said unto Joseph say unto thy

brethren this do he laid your beasts and

go get you into the land of Canaan 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 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 Comm also regard not your

stuff for the good of all the land of

Egypt is yours 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 to all of them he gave each man

changes of raiment but to Benjamin

he gave 300 pieces of silver and five

changes of raiment and to his father he

sent after this manner 10 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

so he sent his brethren away and they

departed and he said unto them see that

she fall not out by the way and they

went up out of Egypt and came into the

land of Canaan unto Jacob their father

and told him saying Joseph is yet alive

and he is governor over all the land of

Egypt and Jacobs heart fainted for he

believed them not and they told him all

the words of Joseph which he had said

unto them and when he saw the wagons

with Joseph had sent to carry him the

spirit of Jacob their father revived and

Israel said it is enough Joseph my son

yes alive I will go and see him before I

die chapter 46 and Israel took his

journey with all that he had and came to

Beersheba and offered sacrifices unto

the God of his father Isaac and God

spake unto Israel in the visions of the

night and said Jacob Jacob and he said

here am I and he said I am God the God

of thy father fear not to go down into

Egypt for I will there make up the great

nation I will go down with the into

Egypt and I will also surely bring the

up again and Joseph shall put his hand

upon thine eyes 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 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

he sent Judah before him unto Joseph to

came into the land of Goshen 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 and Israel said unto Joseph now

because thou art yet alive and Joseph

said unto his brethren and under his

father's house I will go up and show

Pharaoh and say unto Him my brethren and

my father's house which were in the land

of Canaan are come unto me 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 and it shall come to pass

when Pharaoh shall call you and shall

say what is your occupation that ye

shall say thy servants trade have been

about cattle from our youth even until

now both we and also our fathers that he

may dwell in the land of goshen for

every Shepherd is an abomination unto

the Egyptians chapter 47 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

and he took some of his brethren even

five men and presented them unto pharaoh

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 they said

moreover unto Pharaoh for to sojourn in

the land are we come for thy servants

had 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 and Pharaohs

spake unto Joseph saying my father and

my brethren are come unto thee 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 man of

activity among them then make them

rulers over my cattle and Joseph brought

in Jacob his father and set him before

Pharaoh and Jacob blessed pharaoh and

pharaoh said unto Jacob how old art thou

and Jacob said unto Pharaoh the days of

the years of my pilgrimage are 130 years

few and evil have the days of the years

of my

being and have not attained unto the

days of the years of the life of my

father's in the days of that pilgrimage

and Jacob blessed Pharaoh and went out

from before Pharaoh 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

ramasees as Pharaoh had commanded and

Joseph nourished his father and his

brethren and all his father's household

with bread according to their families

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 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 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 and Joseph said give

your cattle and I will give you for your

cattle if money fail 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 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

oft left in the sight of my lord but our

bodies in our lands wherefore shall we

die before thine eyes both we and our

land by us in our land for bread and we

in our land will be servants unto

Pharaoh and give us seed that we may

live and not die that the land be not

desolate 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 and as for the people

he removed them to cities from one end

of the borders of Egypt even to the

other end there

only the land of the priests body not

while the priests had a portion assigned

them of Pharaoh and it eat their portion

which Pharaoh gave them wherefore they

sold not their lands then Joseph said

unto the people behold I have bought you

this day and her land for pharaoh lo

here is seed for you and ye shall sow

the land 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 and they said thou has saved our

lives let us find grace in the sight of

my Lord and we will be Pharaohs servants

and Joseph made it a law over the land

of Egypt unto this day that Pharaohs

should have the fifth part except the

land of the priests only which became

not Pharaohs and Israel dwelt in the

land of Egypt in the country of Goshen

and they had possessions therein and

grew and multiplied exceedingly and

Jacob lived in the land of Egypt 17

years so the whole age of Jacob was in

hundred forty and seven years 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 but I

will lie with my fathers and thou shalt

carry me out of Egypt and bury me in

their burying place and he said I will

do as thou has said and he said swear to

me and he sware unto Him and Israel

bowed himself upon the beds head

chapter xlviii 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 and

one told Jacob and said behold thy son

Joseph cometh unto thee and Israel

strengthened himself and sat upon the

bed and Jacob said unto Joseph God

Almighty appeared unto me at lusts in

the land of Canaan and blessed me 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 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 and

thy issue which thou beget eased after

them shall be thine and shall be called

after the name of their brethren in

their inheritance and as for me when I

came from Peyton Rachel died by me in

the land of Canaan in the way when yet

there was but a little way to come unto

F wrath and I buried her there

in the way of F Roth the same his

Bethlehem and Israel beheld Joseph's

sons and said who are these and Joseph

said under his father they are my sons

whom God had given me in this place and

he said bring them I pray thee unto me

and I will bless them now the eyes of

Israel were dimmed for age so that he

could not see and he brought them near

unto Him and he kissed them and embraced

them and Israel said unto Joseph I had

not thought to see thy face and lo God

hath showed me also thy seed and Joseph

brought them out from between his knees

and he bowed himself with his face to

the earth and Joseph took them both

Ephraim in his right hand toward

Israel's left hand and Manasseh in his

left hand toward his rills right hand

and brought them near unto Him and

Israel stretched out his right hand and

laid it upon efrain's head who was the

younger and his left hand upon Manasses

head guiding his hands wittingly for

Manasseh was the firstborn and he

blessed Joseph and said God before whom

my father's Abraham and Isaac did walk

the God which fed me all my life long

until this day the angel which redeemed

me from all evil bless the lads and let

my name be named on them and the name of

my father's Abraham and Isaac and let

them grow into a multitude in the midst

of the earth 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 a friend's head onto Manasses head

and Joseph said unto his father not so

my father for this is the firstborn put

thy right hand upon his head and his

father refused and said I

it's 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 and

he blessed them that day saying in thee

shall Israel bless saying God make thee

as ephraim and as Manasseh and he said

Ephraim before Manasseh and Israel said

unto Joseph behold I died but God shall

be with you and bring you again unto the

land of your father's moreover I have

given to thee one portion above thy

brethren which I took out of the hand of

Joseph is that fruitful bough even a

fruitful bough by a well whose branches

run over the wall the archers have

sorely grieved him and shot at him and

hated him 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 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 lie Thunder blessings of

the breasts and of the womb 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

Benjamin shall Ravin as a wolf in the

morning he shall devour the prey and at

night he shall divide the spoil all

these are the twelve tribes of Israel

and this is it that their fathers spake

unto them and blessed them every one

according to his blessing he blessed

them and he charged them and said unto

them I am to be gathered unto my people

bury me with my father's in the cave

that is in the field of Ephron the

Hittite in the cave that is in the field

of Machpelah which is before Mamre in

the lands of Canaan which Abraham bought

with the field of Ephron the Hittite for

a possession of a burying-place there

they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife

there are they buried Isaac and Rebecca

his wife and there I buried Leah the

purchase of the field and of the cave

that is therein was from the children of

F 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

chapter 50 and Joseph fell upon his

father's face and wept upon him and

kissed him and Joseph commanded his

servants the physicians to embalm his

father and the physicians embalmed

Israel 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 and when the days of his

mourning were passed 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

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 and Pharaoh said

go up and bury thy father according as

he made thee swear 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 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 and there went up with him both

chariots and horsemen and it was a very

great company and they came to the

threshing floor of a tad 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 and when the inhabitants of the

land the Canaanites saw the mourning in

the floor of a Tad's they said this is a

grievous mourning to the Egyptians

wherefore the name of it was called Abel

Nasreen which is beyond Jordan and his

sons did unto him according as he

commanded them 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 the burying place of

Ephraim the hit height before Mamre 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 and when Joseph's brethren

saw that their father was dead they said

Joseph will peradventure hate us and

will certainly require us all the evil

which we did unto him and they sent a

messenger unto Joseph saying life

did command before he died saying 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 and his brethren also

went and fell down before his face and

they said Behold we be thy servants and

Joseph said unto them fear not for him

buying the place of God but as for you

you thought evil against me but God

meant it unto good to bring to pass as

it is this day to save much people alive

now therefore fear ye not I will nourish

you and your little ones and he

comforted them and speak kindly unto

them and Joseph dwelt in Egypt he and

his father's house and Joseph lived in

hundred and ten years and Joseph saw

Ephraim's children of the third

generation the children also of maker

the son of Manasseh were brought up upon

Joseph's sneeze and Joseph said unto his

brethren I died

and God will surely visit you and bring

you out of this land onto the land which

he sware to Abraham to Isaac and to

Jacob and Joseph took an oath of the

children of Israel saying God will

surely visit you and he shall carry up

my bones from hence so Joseph died being

a hundred and ten years old and they

embalmed him and he was put in a coffin

in Egypt
