Notes on Genesis

From the 1599 Geneva Bible Notes


Ge 1:1

1:1 In the {a} beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

The Argument - Moses in effect declares three things, which are in this book chiefly to be considered: First, that the world and all things in it were created by God, and to praise his Name for the infinite graces, with which he had endued him, fell willingly from God through disobedience, who yet for his own mercies sake restored him to life, and confirmed him in the same by his promise of Christ to come, by whom he should overcome Satan, death and hell. Secondly, that the wicked, unmindful of God's most excellent benefits, remained still in their wickedness, and so falling most horribly from sin to sin, provoked God
(who by his preachers called them continually to repentance) at length to destroy the whole world. Thirdly, he assures us by the examples of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the rest of the patriarchs, that his mercies never fail those whom he chooses to be his Church, and to profess his Name in earth, but in all their afflictions and persecutions he assists them, sends comfort, and delivers them, so that the beginning, increase, preservation and success of it might be attributed to God only. Moses shows by the examples of Cain, Ishmael, Esau and others, who were noble in man's judgment, that this Church depends not on the estimation and nobility of the world: and also by the fewness of those, who have at all times worshipped him purely according to his word that it stands not in the multitude, but in the poor and despised, in the small flock and little number, that man in his wisdom might be confounded, and the name of God praised forever.

Ge 1:2

1:2 And the earth was {b} without form, and void; and {c} darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God {d} moved upon the face of the waters.

Ge 1:3

1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was {e} light.

Ge 1:7

1:7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which [were] {f} under the firmament from the waters which [were] above the firmament: and it was so.

Ge 1:8

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

Ge 1:11

1:11 And God said, {h} 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.

Ge 1:12

1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, [and] herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed [was] in itself, after his kind: and God {i} saw that [it was] good.

Ge 1:14

1:14 And God said, Let there be {k} lights in the firmament of the heaven to {l} divide the day from the night; and let them be for {m} signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Ge 1:16

1:16 And God made two great {n} lights; the greater light to {o} rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: [he made] the stars also.

Ge 1:20

1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the {p} moving creature that hath life, and fowl [that] may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

Ge 1:21

1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the {q} waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that [it was] good.

Ge 1:22

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

Ge 1:26

1:26 And God said, {s} Let us make man in our {t} 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.

Ge 1:28

1:28 And God {u} 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.

Ge 1:29

1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you {x} 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.

Ge 2:1

2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the {a} host of them.

Ge 2:2

2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he {b} rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

Ge 2:3

2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and {c} sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Ge 2:5

2:5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to {d} rain upon the earth, and [there was] not a man to till the ground.

Ge 2:7

2:7 And the LORD God formed man {e} [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Ge 2:8

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

Ge 2:9

2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the {g} tree of life also in the midst of the garden, {h} and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Ge 2:11

2:11 The name of the first [is] Pison: that [is] it which compasseth the whole land {i} of Havilah, where [there is] gold;

Ge 2:15

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

Ge 2:16

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

Ge 2:17

2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely {m} die.

Ge 2:19

2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto {n} Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof.

Ge 2:22

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

Ge 2:24

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

Ge 2:25

2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not {q} ashamed.

Ge 3:1

3:1 Now the serpent was more {a} subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he {b} said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Ge 3:3

3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which [is] in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, {c} lest ye die.

Ge 3:4

3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely {d} die:

Ge 3:5

3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, {e} knowing good and evil.

Ge 3:6

3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree [was] good for food, and that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make [one] wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he {f} did eat.

Ge 3:7

3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they {g} knew that they [were] naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Ge 3:8

3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife {h} hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

Ge 3:10

3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I [was] {i} naked; and I hid myself.

Ge 3:12

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

Ge 3:13

3:13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What [is] this [that] thou hast done? And the woman said, {l} The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Ge 3:14

3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, {m} Because thou hast done this, thou [art] cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and {n} dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

Ge 3:15

3:15 And I will put enmity between {o} thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy {p} head, and thou shalt {q} bruise his heel.

Ge 3:16

3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy {r} 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.

Ge 3:17

3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: {s} cursed [is] the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat [of] it all the days of thy life;

Ge 3:18

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

Ge 3:21

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

Ge 3:22

3:22 And the LORD God said, {x} Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and {y} take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

Ge 4:1

4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she {a} conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man {b} from the LORD.

Ge 4:3

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

Ge 4:7

4:7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be {e} accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the {f} door. And unto thee [shall be] his {g} desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Ge 4:9

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

Ge 4:10

4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the {i} voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. {i} God avenges the wrongs against his saints, though no one complains: for the iniquity itself cries for vengeance.

Ge 4:11

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

Ge 4:12

4:12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a {l} fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

Ge 4:13

4:13 And Cain said unto the LORD, {m} My punishment [is] greater than I can bear.

Ge 4:15

4:15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, {n} vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a {o} mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

Ge 4:17

4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a {p} city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

Ge 4:19

4:19 And Lamech took unto him {q} two wives: the name of the one [was] Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.

Ge 4:23

4:23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: {r} for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.

Ge 4:24

4:24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech {s} seventy and sevenfold.

Ge 4:26

4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to {t} call upon the name of the LORD.

Ge 5:1

5:1 This [is] the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the {a} likeness of God made he him;

Ge 5:2

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

Ge 5:3

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

Ge 5:6

5:6 And {d} Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:

Ge 5:8

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

Ge 5:22

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

Ge 5:24

5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he [was] not; for {g} God took him.

Ge 5:29

5:29 And he called his name Noah, saying, This [same] shall {h} comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.

Ge 6:2

6:2 That the {a} sons of God saw the daughters {b} of men that they [were] {c} fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Ge 6:3

6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always {d} strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an {e} hundred and twenty years.

Ge 6:4

6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of {f} renown.

Ge 6:6

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

Ge 6:7

6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and {h} beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

Ge 6:8

6:8 But Noah {i} found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Ge 6:11

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

Ge 6:16

6:16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; [with] {1} lower, second, and third [stories] shalt thou make it.

Ge 6:18

6:18 But with thee will I {m} establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.

Ge 6:22

6:22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, {n} so did he.

Ge 7:1

7:1 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen {a} righteous before me in this generation.

Ge 7:2

7:2 Of every {b} 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.

Ge 7:9

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

Ge 7:11

7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the {e} fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

Ge 7:15

7:15 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two {f} of all flesh, wherein [is] the breath of life.

Ge 7:16

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

Ge 7:23

7:23 And every living substance was destroyed {h} 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 {i} remained [alive], and they that [were] with him in the ark.

Ge 8:1

8:1 And God {a} remembered Noah, and {b} every living thing, and all the cattle that [was] with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged;

Ge 8:4

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

Ge 8:5

8:5 And the waters decreased continually until the {d} tenth month: in the tenth [month], on the first [day] of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.

Ge 8:9

8:9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters [were] on the face of the whole earth: then he {e} put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.

Ge 8:11

8:11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth [was] an {f} olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.

Ge 8:13

8:13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the {g} 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.

Ge 8:16

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

Ge 8:20

8:20 And Noah {i} builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Ge 8:21

8:21 And the LORD smelled a {k} sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart [is] evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

Ge 8:22

8:22 While the earth remaineth, {l} seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Ge 9:1

9:1 And God {a} blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

Ge 9:2

9:2 And the {b} 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.

Ge 9:3

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

Ge 9:4

9:4 {d} But flesh with the life thereof, [which is] the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

Ge 9:5

9:5 {e} 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.

Ge 9:6

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

Ge 9:9

9:9 And I, behold, I establish my {h} covenant with you, and with your {i} seed after you;

Ge 9:13

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

Ge 9:15

9:15 And I will remember my {l} 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.

Ge 9:17

9:17 And God said unto Noah, {m} This [is] the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that [is] upon the earth.

Ge 9:19

9:19 These [are] the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth {n} overspread.

Ge 9:21

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

Ge 9:22

9:22 And Ham, the father of {p} Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and {q} told his two brethren without.

Ge 9:25

9:25 And he said, {r} Cursed [be] Canaan; a {s} servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

Ge 9:27

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

Ge 10:1

10:1 {a} Now these [are] the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

Ge 10:2

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

Ge 10:5

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

Ge 10:6

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

Ge 10:8

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

Ge 10:9

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

Ge 10:10

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

Ge 10:13

10:13 And Mizraim begat {h} Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,

Ge 10:21

10:21 Unto {i} Shem also, the father of all the children of {k} Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were [children] born.

Ge 10:25

10:25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one [was] Peleg; for in his days was the earth {l} divided; and his brother's name [was] Joktan.

Ge 11:2

11:2 And it came to pass, {a} as {b} they journeyed from the {c} east, that they found a plain in the land of {d} Shinar; and they dwelt there.

Ge 11:4

11:4 And they said, Go to, let us {e} build us a city and a tower, whose top [may reach] unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

Ge 11:5

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

Ge 11:6

11:6 And the LORD said, {g} 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.

Ge 11:7

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

Ge 11:10

11:10 These [are] the generations {k} of Shem: Shem [was] an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:

Ge 11:27

11:27 Now these [are] the generations of Terah: Terah begat {1} Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.

Ge 11:29

11:29 And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife [was] Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of {m} Iscah.

Ge 11:31

11:31 And {n} Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto {o} Haran, and dwelt there.

Ge 12:1

12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, {a} Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto {b} a land that I will shew thee:

Ge 12:2

12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be {c} a blessing:

Ge 12:5

12:5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the {d} 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.

Ge 12:6

12:6 And Abram {e} passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the {f} Canaanite [was] then in the land.

Ge 12:7

12:7 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he {g} an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

Ge 12:8

12:8 And he removed from {h} thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, [having] Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an {i} altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.

Ge 12:9

12:9 {k} And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.

Ge 12:10

12:10 And there was a {l} famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine [was] grievous in the land.

Ge 12:13

12:13 Say, I pray thee, thou [art] my {m} sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.

Ge 12:15

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

Ge 12:17

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

Ge 12:20

12:20 And Pharaoh {p} commanded [his] men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

Ge 13:1

13:1 And {a} Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south.

Ge 13:3

13:3 And he went on his journeys from the south even to {b} Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai;

Ge 13:6

13:6 And the land was not able to {c} bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.

Ge 13:7

13:7 And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the {d} Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.

Ge 13:8

13:8 And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no {e} strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we [be] brethren.

Ge 13:9

13:9 [Is] not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if [thou wilt {f} 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.

Ge 13:10

13:10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it [was] well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, [even] as the {g} garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.

Ge 13:11

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

Ge 13:13

13:13 But the men of Sodom [were] wicked and {i} sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

Ge 13:14

13:14 And the LORD said unto {k} Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:

Ge 13:15

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

Ge 14:1

14:1 And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of {a} Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of {b} nations;

Ge 14:3

14:3 All these were {c} joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the {d} salt sea.

Ge 14:10

14:10 And the {e} vale of Siddim [was full of] slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain.

Ge 14:12

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

Ge 14:13

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

Ge 14:18

14:18 And Melchizedek king of Salem {h} brought forth bread and wine: and he [was] the priest of the most high God.

Ge 14:19

14:19 And he {i} blessed him, and said, Blessed [be] Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

Ge 14:24

14:24 {k} Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.

Ge 15:2

15:2 And Abram said, {a} Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house [is] this Eliezer of Damascus?

Ge 15:8

15:8 And he said, Lord GOD, {b} whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?

Ge 15:10

15:10 And he took unto him all these, and {c} divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.

Ge 15:13

15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land [that is] not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them {d} four hundred years;

Ge 15:16

15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the {e} iniquity of the Amorites [is] not yet full.

Ge 16:1

16:1 Now {a} Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name [was] Hagar.

Ge 16:2

16:2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath {b} restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.

Ge 16:4

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

Ge 16:7

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

Ge 16:9

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

Ge 16:12

16:12 And he will be a wild man; his hand [will be] against every man, and every man's hand against him; and {f} he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

Ge 16:13

16:13 And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, {g} Have I also here looked after him that seeth me?

Ge 17:4

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

Ge 17:5

17:5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be {b} Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

Ge 17:10

17:10 {c} This [is] my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.

Ge 17:11

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

Ge 17:14

17:14 And the uncircumcised {e} man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.

Ge 17:17

17:17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and {f} laughed, and said in his heart, Shall [a child] be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?

Ge 17:19

17:19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an {g} everlasting covenant, [and] with his seed after him.

Ge 17:23

17:23 And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's house; and {h} circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him.

Ge 18:2

18:2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three {a} men stood by him: and when he saw [them], he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,

Ge 18:3

18:3 And said, My {b} Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

Ge 18:4

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

Ge 18:5

18:5 And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye {d} come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.

Ge 18:8

18:8 And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set [it] before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and {e} they did eat.

Ge 18:10

18:10 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of {f} life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard [it] in the tent door, which [was] behind him.

Ge 18:12

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

Ge 18:17

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

Ge 18:19

18:19 For I know him, {i} 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.

Ge 18:21

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

Ge 18:26

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

Ge 18:27

18:27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which [am {n} but] dust and ashes:

Ge 18:32

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

Ge 19:1

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

Ge 19:3

19:3 And {b} 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 {c} did eat.

Ge 19:4

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

Ge 19:8

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

Ge 19:13

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

Ge 19:16

19:16 And while he {h} 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.

Ge 19:17

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

Ge 19:20

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

Ge 19:22

19:22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I {l} cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called {m} Zoar.

Ge 19:26

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

Ge 19:30

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

Ge 19:31

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

Ge 19:32

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

Ge 19:36

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

Ge 19:37

19:37 And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same [is] the father of the {s} Moabites unto this day.

Ge 19:38

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

Ge 20:1

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

Ge 20:2

20:2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, {b} She [is] my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.

Ge 20:3

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

Ge 20:4

20:4 But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay also {d} a righteous nation?

Ge 20:5

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

Ge 20:6

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

Ge 20:7

20:7 Now therefore restore the man [his] wife; for he [is] a {h} prophet, and he {i} 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.

Ge 20:9

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

Ge 20:11

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

Ge 20:12

20:12 And yet indeed [she is] my {m} sister; she [is] the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.

Ge 20:16

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

Ge 20:18

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

Ge 21:2

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

Ge 21:7

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

Ge 21:9

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

Ge 21:12

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

Ge 21:13

21:13 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make {e} a nation, because he [is] thy seed.

Ge 21:14

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

Ge 21:17

21:17 And God {g} 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].

Ge 21:19

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

Ge 21:20

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

Ge 21:24

21:24 And Abraham said, I will {k} swear.

Ge 21:26

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

Ge 21:32

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

Ge 21:33

21:33 And [Abraham] planted a grove in Beersheba, and {n} called there on the name of the LORD, the everlasting God.

Ge 22:2

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

Ge 22:5

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

Ge 22:8

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

Ge 22:9

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

Ge 22:12

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

Ge 22:14

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

Ge 22:16

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

Ge 22:24

22:24 And his {i} concubine, whose name [was] Reumah, she bare also Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.

Ge 23:3

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

Ge 23:6

23:6 Hear us, my lord: thou [art] a {b} mighty prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead. {b} That is godly or excellent: for so do the Hebrews speak of all things that are notable, because all excellency comes from God.

Ge 23:10

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

Ge 23:12

23:12 And Abraham {d} bowed down himself before the people of the land.

Ge 23:15

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

Ge 23:20

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

Ge 24:2

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

Ge 24:3

24:3 And I will make thee {b} 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:

Ge 24:4

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

Ge 24:6

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

Ge 24:10

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

Ge 24:12

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

Ge 24:14

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

Ge 24:15

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

Ge 24:16

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

Ge 24:22

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

Ge 24:27

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

Ge 24:30

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

Ge 24:32

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

Ge 24:33

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

Ge 24:35

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

Ge 24:37

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

Ge 24:38

24:38 But thou shalt go unto my {t} father's house, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son.

Ge 24:41

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

Ge 24:45

24:45 And before I had done speaking in mine {x} 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.

Ge 24:48

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

Ge 24:49

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

Ge 24:50

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

Ge 24:57

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

Ge 24:60

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

Ge 24:63

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

Ge 25:1

25:1 Then again Abraham {a} took a wife, and her name [was] Keturah.

Ge 25:6

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

Ge 25:17

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

Ge 25:18

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

Ge 25:22

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

Ge 25:32

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

Ge 25:33

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

Ge 26:1

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

Ge 26:2

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

Ge 26:5

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

Ge 26:7

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

Ge 26:8

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

Ge 26:10

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

Ge 26:14

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

Ge 26:17

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

Ge 26:24

26:24 And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I [am] the God {i} 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.

Ge 26:25

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

Ge 26:29

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

Ge 27:4

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

Ge 27:9

27:9 {b} 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:

Ge 27:13

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

Ge 27:19

27:19 And Jacob said unto his father, {d} 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.

Ge 27:22

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

Ge 27:33

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

Ge 27:36

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

Ge 27:37

27:37 And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him
(h) 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?

Ge 27:40

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

Ge 27:41

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

Ge 27:42

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

Ge 27:45

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

Ge 27:46

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

Ge 28:1

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

Ge 28:4

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

Ge 28:9

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

Ge 28:12

28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a {d} 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.

Ge 28:13

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

Ge 28:17

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

Ge 28:18

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

Ge 28:20

28:20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If {h} 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,

Ge 29:1

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

Ge 29:2

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

Ge 29:4

29:4 And Jacob said unto them, My {c} brethren, whence [be] ye? And they said, Of Haran [are] we.

Ge 29:6

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

Ge 29:13

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

Ge 29:14

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

Ge 29:20

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

Ge 29:23

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

Ge 29:26

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

Ge 29:31

29:31 And when the LORD saw that Leah [was] hated, he {k} opened her womb: but Rachel [was] barren.

Ge 29:32

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

Ge 30:2

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

Ge 30:3

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

Ge 30:8

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

Ge 30:11

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

Ge 30:14

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

Ge 30:18

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

Ge 30:23

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

Ge 30:30

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

Ge 30:32

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

Ge 30:33

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

Ge 30:37

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

Ge 30:41

30:41 And it came to pass, whensoever the {m} 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.

Ge 31:1

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

Ge 31:5

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

Ge 31:9

31:9 Thus {c} God hath taken away the cattle of your father, and given [them] to me.

Ge 31:13

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

Ge 31:15

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

Ge 31:19

31:19 And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the {f} images that [were] her father's.

Ge 31:29

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

Ge 31:42

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

Ge 31:44

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

Ge 31:47

31:47 And Laban called it Jegarsahadutha: but Jacob called it {k} Galeed.

Ge 31:49

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

Ge 31:50

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

Ge 31:53

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

Ge 31:55

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

Ge 32:2

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

Ge 32:4

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

Ge 32:7

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

Ge 32:10

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

Ge 32:11

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

Ge 32:13

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

Ge 32:20

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

Ge 32:24

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

Ge 32:25

32:25 And when he saw that he {i} 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.

Ge 32:28

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

Ge 32:31

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

Ge 33:1

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

Ge 33:3

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

Ge 33:6

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

Ge 33:10

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

Ge 33:14

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

Ge 33:20

33:20 And he erected there an altar, and called {g} it Elelohe-Israel.

Ge 34:1

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

Ge 34:4

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

Ge 34:14

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

Ge 34:15

34:15 But in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as we [be], that every male of you be {e} circumcised;

Ge 34:20

34:20 And Hamor and Shechem his son came unto the {f} gate of their city, and communed with the men of their city, saying,

Ge 34:21

34:21 These men [are] {g} peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the land, and trade therein; for the land, behold, [it is] large enough for them; let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our daughters.

Ge 34:23

34:23 [Shall] not {h} their cattle and their substance and every beast of theirs [be] ours? only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell with us.

Ge 34:25

34:25 And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, {i} Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brethren, took each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew {k} all the males.

Ge 35:1

35:1 And {a} God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.

Ge 35:2

35:2 Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that [were] with him, Put away the strange gods that [are] among you, and be {b} clean, and change your garments:

Ge 35:4

35:4 And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which [were] in their hand, and [all their] {c} earrings which [were] in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which [was] by Shechem.

Ge 35:5

35:5 And they journeyed: and the
(d) terror of God was upon the cities that [were] round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.

Ge 35:13

35:13 And God {e} went up from him in the place where he talked with him.

Ge 35:16

35:16 And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a {f} little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.

Ge 35:20

35:20 And Jacob set a {g} pillar upon her grave: that [is] the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day.

Ge 35:22

35:22 And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and {h} lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard [it]. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:

Ge 36:1

36:1 Now these [are] {a} the generations of Esau, who [is] Edom.

Ge 36:2

36:2 Esau took his wives of the {b} daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite;

Ge 36:6

36:6 And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and {c} went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob.

Ge 36:15

36:15 These [were] {d} dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the firstborn [son] of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz,

Ge 36:20

36:20 These [are] the sons of Seir the Horite, who {e} inhabited the land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah,

Ge 36:24

36:24 And these [are] the children of Zibeon; both Ajah, and Anah: this [was that] Anah that found the {f} mules in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father.

Ge 36:31

36:31 And these [are] the {g} kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel.

Ge 36:37

36:37 And Samlah died, and Saul of {h} Rehoboth [by] the river reigned in his stead.

Ge 36:43

36:43 Duke Magdiel, duke Iram: these [be] the dukes of Edom, according to their habitations in the land of their possession: he [is] Esau the father of the {i} Edomites.

Ge 37:1

37:1 And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a {a} stranger, in the land of Canaan.

Ge 37:2

37:2 These [are] the generations of Jacob. Joseph, [being] seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad [was] with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil {b} report.

Ge 37:5

37:5 And Joseph {c} dreamed a dream, and he told [it] his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.

Ge 37:8

37:8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they {d} hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.

Ge 37:10

37:10 And he told [it] to his father, and to his brethren: and his father {e} rebuked him, and said unto him, What [is] this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?

Ge 37:11

37:11 And his brethren envied him; but his father {f} observed the saying.

Ge 37:18

37:18 And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they
(g) conspired against him to slay him.

Ge 37:24

37:24 And they took him, and cast {h} him into a pit: and the pit [was] empty, [there was] no water in it.

Ge 37:28

37:28 Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the {i} Ishmeelites for twenty [pieces] of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.

Ge 37:32

37:32 And they sent the coat of [many] colours, {k} and they brought [it] to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it [be] thy son's coat or no.

Ge 37:36

37:36 And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an {l} officer of Pharaoh's, [and] captain of the guard.

Ge 38:1

38:1 And it came to pass at that time, that {a} Judah went down from his brethren, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name [was] Hirah.

Ge 38:2

38:2 And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name [was] Shuah; {b} and he took her, and went in unto her.

Ge 38:8

38:8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother's wife, and marry her, and raise {c} up seed to thy brother.

Ge 38:11

38:11 Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, {d} Remain a widow at thy father's house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brethren [did]. And Tamar went and dwelt in her father's house.

Ge 38:16

38:16 And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee;
(for he {e} knew not that she [was] his daughter in law.) And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me?

Ge 38:20

38:20 And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his {f} friend the Adullamite, to receive [his] pledge from the woman's hand: but he found her not.

Ge 38:23

38:23 And Judah said, Let her take [it] to her, lest we be {g} shamed: behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.

Ge 38:24

38:24 And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she [is] with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be {h} burnt.

Ge 38:26

38:26 And Judah acknowledged [them], and said, She hath been {i} more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again {k} no more.

Ge 38:29

38:29 And it came to pass, as he {l} drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How {m} hast thou broken forth? [this] breach [be] upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.

Ge 39:1

39:1 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an {a} officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.

Ge 39:2

39:2 And the {b} LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

Ge 39:4

39:4 And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him {c} overseer over his house, and all [that] he had he put into his hand.

Ge 39:5

39:5 And it came to pass from the time [that] he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD {d} blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.

Ge 39:6

39:6 And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; {e} and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was [a] goodly [person], and well favoured.

Ge 39:7

39:7 And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, {f} Lie with me.

Ge 39:9

39:9 [There is] none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou [art] his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against {g} God?

Ge 39:14

39:14 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I {h} cried with a loud voice:

Ge 39:20

39:20 And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the {i} prison, a place where the king's prisoners [were] bound: and he was there in the prison.

Ge 39:22

39:22 And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that [were] in the prison; and {k} whatsoever they did there, he was the doer [of it].

Ge 40:3

40:3 And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where {a} Joseph [was] bound.

Ge 40:5

40:5 And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in one night, {b} 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.

Ge 40:8

40:8 And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and [there is] no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, {c} [Do] not interpretations [belong] to God? tell me [them], I pray you.

Ge 40:12

40:12 And Joseph said unto him, This {d} [is] the interpretation of it: The three branches [are] three days:

Ge 40:14

40:14 But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and shew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and {e} make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:

Ge 40:16

40:16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Joseph, I also [was] in my dream, and, behold, [I had] three {f} white baskets on my head:

Ge 40:18

40:18 And Joseph answered and said, {g} This [is] the interpretation thereof: The three baskets [are] three days:

Ge 40:20

40:20 And it came to pass the third day, [which was] Pharaoh's {h} 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.

Ge 41:1

41:1 And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh {a} dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

Ge 41:5

41:5 And he slept and dreamed the {b} second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good.

Ge 41:8

41:8 And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was {c} troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but [there was] none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.

Ge 41:9

41:9 Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I {e} do remember my faults this day:

Ge 41:14

41:14 Then Pharaoh sent and called {f} Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved [himself], and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.

Ge 41:16

41:16 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, {g} [It is] not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

Ge 41:25

41:25 And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, {h} The dream of Pharaoh [is] one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he [is] about to do.

Ge 41:33

41:33 Now therefore let Pharaoh {i} look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

Ge 41:38

41:38 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find [such a one] as this [is], a man in whom the {k} Spirit of God [is]?

Ge 41:40

41:40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy {l} word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

Ge 41:43

41:43 And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, {m} Bow the knee: and he made him [ruler] over all the land of Egypt.

Ge 41:46

41:46 And Joseph [was] {n} thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.

Ge 41:51

41:51 And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, [said he], hath made me forget all my toil, and all my {o} father's house.

Ge 42:1

42:1 Now when {a} Jacob saw that there was corn in Egypt, Jacob said unto his sons, Why do ye {b} look one upon another?

Ge 42:7

42:7 And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but {c} made himself strange unto them, and spake roughly unto them; and he said unto them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy food.

Ge 42:15

42:15 Hereby ye shall be proved: {d} By the life of Pharaoh ye shall not go forth hence, except your youngest brother come hither.

Ge 42:18

42:18 And Joseph said unto them the third day, This do, and live; [for] I {e} fear God:

Ge 42:21

42:21 And they said one to another, {f} 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.

Ge 42:22

42:22 And Reuben answered them, saying, Spake I not unto you, saying, Do not sin against the child; and ye would not hear? therefore, behold, also his {g} blood is required.

Ge 42:24

42:24 And he turned himself about from them, and {h} wept; and returned to them again, and communed with them, and took from them Simeon, and bound him before their eyes.

Ge 42:28

42:28 And he said unto his brethren, My money is restored; and, lo, [it is] even in my sack: and their heart failed [them], and they were {i} afraid, saying one to another, What [is] this [that] God hath done unto us?

Ge 42:36

42:36 And Jacob their father said unto them, Me have ye bereaved [of my children]: Joseph [is] not, and Simeon [is] not, and ye will take Benjamin [away]: all these things are against {k} me.

Ge 43:1

43:1 And the {a} famine [was] sore in the land.

Ge 43:12

43:12 And take {b} 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:

Ge 43:14

43:14 And {c} God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be {d} bereaved [of my children], I am bereaved.

Ge 43:18

43:18 And the men were {e} afraid, because they were brought into Joseph's house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in our sacks at the first time are we brought in; that he may seek occasion against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses.

Ge 43:23

43:23 And he said, Peace [be] to you, fear not: {f} your God, and the God of your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Simeon out unto them.

Ge 43:29

43:29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his {g} mother's son, and said, [Is] this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.

Ge 43:32

43:32 And they {h} 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 {i} abomination unto the Egyptians.

Ge 43:34

43:34 And he took [and sent] messes unto them from before him: but Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of theirs. And they drank, {k} and were merry with him.

Ge 44:2

44:2 And {a} put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack's mouth of the youngest, and his corn money. And he did according to the word that Joseph had spoken.

Ge 44:5

44:5 [Is] not this [it] in which my lord drinketh, and {b} whereby indeed he divineth? ye have done evil in so doing.

Ge 44:13

44:13 Then they {c} rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and returned to the city.

Ge 44:16

44:16 And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? {d} God hath found out the iniquity of thy servants: behold, we [are] my lord's servants, both we, and [he] also with whom the cup is found.

Ge 44:18

44:18 Then Judah came near unto him, and said, Oh my lord, let thy servant, I pray thee, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not thine anger burn against thy servant: for thou [art] even {e} as Pharaoh.

Ge 44:27

44:27 And thy servant my father said unto us, Ye know that my {f} wife bare me two [sons]:

Ge 44:29

44:29 And if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, {g} ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave. {g} You will cause me to die for sorrow.

Ge 44:34

44:34 For {h} 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.

Ge 45:1

45:1 Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, {a} Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren.

Ge 45:5

45:5 Now therefore be not {b} grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.

Ge 45:8

45:8 So now [it was] not you [that] sent me hither, but {c} 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.

Ge 45:12

45:12 And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that [it is] {d} my mouth that speaketh unto you.

Ge 45:18

45:18 And take your father and your households, and come unto me: and I will give you the {e} good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the {f} fat of the land.

Ge 45:24

45:24 So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and he said unto them, See that ye {g} fall not out by the way.

Ge 45:26

45:26 And told him, saying, Joseph [is] yet alive, and he [is] governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob's heart {h} fainted, for he believed them not.

Ge 46:1

46:1 And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and {a} offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac.

Ge 46:4

46:4 I will {b} go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely {c} bring thee up [again]: and Joseph shall {d} put his hand upon thine eyes.

Ge 46:32

46:32 And the men [are] {e} shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have.

Ge 46:34

46:34 That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, [and] also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd [is] an {f} abomination unto the Egyptians.

Ge 47:2

47:2 And he took some of his brethren, [even] {a} five men, and presented them unto Pharaoh.

Ge 47:6

47:6 The {b} land of Egypt [is] before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest [any] men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.

Ge 47:11

47:11 And Joseph placed his father and his brethren, and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of {c} Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.

Ge 47:12

47:12 And Joseph nourished his father, and his brethren, and all his father's household, with bread, {d} according to [their] families.

Ge 47:14

47:14 And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and {e} Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.

Ge 47:19

47:19 Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our {f} land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give [us] seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.

Ge 47:21

47:21 And as for the people, he {g} removed them to cities from [one] end of the borders of Egypt even to the [other] end thereof.

Ge 47:26

47:26 And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, [that] Pharaoh should have the fifth [part]; {h} except the land of the priests only, [which] became not Pharaoh's.

Ge 47:30

47:30 But I will {i} lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their buryingplace. And he said, I will do as thou hast said.

Ge 47:31

47:31 And he said, Swear unto me. And he sware unto him. And Israel {k} bowed himself upon the bed's head.

Ge 48:1

48:1 And it came to pass after these things, that [one] told Joseph, Behold, thy father [is] sick: and he took with him his {a} two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.

Ge 48:4

48:4 And said unto me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will give this land to thy seed after thee [for] an {b} everlasting possession.

Ge 48:9

48:9 And Joseph said unto his father, They [are] my sons, whom {c} God hath given me in this [place]. And he said, Bring them, I pray thee, unto me, and I will bless them.

Ge 48:14

48:14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid [it] upon {d} Ephraim's head, who [was] the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh [was] the firstborn.

Ge 48:16

48:16 The {e} Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my {f} name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.

Ge 48:17

48:17 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it {g} displeased him: and he held up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head.

Ge 48:20

48:20 And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless, saying, God make thee as {h} Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh.

Ge 48:21

48:21 And Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die: but God shall be with you, and bring you again unto the land of {i} your fathers.

Ge 48:22

48:22 Moreover I have given to thee one portion above thy brethren, which {k} I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.

Ge 49:1

49:1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you [that] which shall befall you in the
(a) last days.

Ge 49:3

49:3 Reuben, thou [art] my firstborn, my {b} might, and the beginning of my strength, {c} the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

Ge 49:6

49:6 O my soul, come not thou into their {d} secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a {e} man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

Ge 49:7

49:7 Cursed [be] their anger, for [it was] fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will {f} divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.

Ge 49:8

49:8 Judah, thou [art he] whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand [shall be] in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall {g} bow down before thee.

Ge 49:9

49:9 Judah [is] a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; {h} who shall rouse him up?

Ge 49:10

49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until {i} Shiloh come; and unto him [shall] the gathering of the people [be].

Ge 49:11

49:11 Binding his foal unto the {k} vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:

Ge 49:14

49:14 Issachar [is] {l} a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

Ge 49:16

49:16 Dan {m} shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

Ge 49:18

49:18 {o} I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD.

Ge 49:20

49:20 Out of Asher his {p} bread [shall be] fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

Ge 49:21

49:21 Naphtali [is] a hind let loose: he giveth {q} goodly words.

Ge 49:23

49:23 {r} The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot [at him], and hated him:

Ge 49:24

49:24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty [God] of Jacob;
(from thence [is] the shepherd, the {s} stone of Israel:)

Ge 49:26

49:26 The blessings of thy father have {t} 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 {u} separate from his brethren.

Ge 49:33

49:33 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he {x} gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.

Ge 50:2

50:2 And Joseph commanded his servants the {a} physicians to embalm his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel.

Ge 50:3

50:3 And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him {b} threescore and ten days.

Ge 50:6

50:6 And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according {c} as he made thee swear.

Ge 50:15

50:15 And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, {d} Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him.

Ge 50:17

50:17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the {e} God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.

Ge 50:19

50:19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for [am] I in the place of {s} God?

Ge 50:22

50:22 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived an {g} hundred and ten years.

Ge 50:25

50:25 And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, {h} God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.
