The Genealogy of Noah
1 Now this is the genealogy of Noah’s sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and sons were born to them after the flood.†
2 The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Elisa, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.
3 The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.
4 The sons of Javan were Elishah, Tarshish, the Kittim, and Rhodians.
5 From these the coastal nations were separated into their lands, each according to his language, in their tribes and nations.
6 The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan.
7 The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtechah; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.
8 Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a giant on the earth.
9 He was a giant, a hunter before the Lord God; therefore they would say, “As Nimrod the giant, the hunter before the Lord.”
10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babylon, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
11 From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah,
12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (the principal city).
13 Mizraim begot Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim,
14 Pathrusim, and Casluhim (from whom came the Philistines and the Caphtorim).
15 Canaan begot Sidon his firstborn, and the Chettite;
16 the Jebusite, the Amorite, and the Girgashite;
17 the Hivite, the Arkite, and the Sinite;
18 the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. Afterward, the tribes of the Canaanites were dispersed.
19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as you go toward Gerar, as far as Gaza; then as you go toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha.
20 These were the sons of Ham, according to their tribes, according to their languages, in their countries and in their nations.
21 Now sons were also born to Shem himself, the father of all the sons of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder.†
22 The sons of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, Aram and Cainan.
23 The sons of Aram were Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.
24 Arphaxad begot Cainan, and Cainan begot Salah, and Salah begot Eber.
25 Two sons were born to Eber: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.
26 Joktan begot Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,
27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba,
29 Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were the sons of Joktan.
30 And their dwelling place was from Mesha as you go toward Sephar, the mountain of the east.
31 These were the sons of Shem, according to their tribes, according to their languages, in their countries, according to their nations.
32 These were the tribes of Noah’s sons, according to their genealogy, in their nations; and from these the coastal nations were divided on the earth after the flood.
1 For the End; a psalm by David. †
2 How long, O Lord? Will You forget me to the end? How long will You turn Your face from me?
3 How long will I take counsel in my soul, Having grief in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
4 Look upon me and hear me, O Lord my God; Enlighten my eyes, lest I sleep in death,
5 Lest my enemy say, “I prevailed against him”; Those who afflict me greatly rejoice, if I am shaken.
6 But I hope in Your mercy; My heart shall greatly rejoice in Your salvation; I will sing to the Lord, who shows kindness to me; I will sing to the name of the Lord Most High.
1 For the End; a psalm by David. †The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they are abominable in their habits; There is none, not even one, who does good.
2 The Lord stooped down from heaven to look upon the sons of men, To see if there were any who understood or sought God.
3 All turned aside and were altogether corrupted; There was not even one doing good, no, not one. Their throat is an open tomb; They deal deceptively with their tongues; The poison of serpents is under their lips, Whose mouth is full of curses and bitterness; Their feet are swift to shed blood; Affliction and suffering are in their ways, And the way of peace they have not known; There is no fear of God before their eyes.
4 Do all the workers of lawlessness not know? They eat up my people as they eat bread, and they do not call upon the Lord.
5 They were in great fear where no fear was, Because God is in the righteous generation.
6 You shamed the counsel of the poor man, Because the Lord is his hope.
7 Who will bring about the salvation of Israel out of Zion? When the Lord returns His people from captivity, Let Jacob greatly rejoice, and let Israel be glad.
Proverbs of Solomon 2
10 For if wisdom comes into your mind, And the perception in your soul seems to be good,
11 Then good counsel will guard you, And holy thinking will keep you;
12 That it might rescue you from an evil way And from a man who speaks nothing trustworthy.
13 Woe to those who forsake the paths of uprightness So they may walk in the ways of darkness,
14 Who delight in evils And rejoice in evil perversion,
15 Whose ways are crooked And their paths devious,
16 So they may cause you to be far from the straight way And a stranger to righteous judgment.
A Leper Cleansed
1 When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.†
2 And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”
3 Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4 And Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”
A Paralyzed Servant Healed
5 Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him,†
6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”
7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”†
8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.†
9 For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it. ”
10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!†
11 And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.†
12 But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.
Power over All Infirmities
14 Now when Jesus had come into Peter’s house, He saw his wife’s mother lying sick with a fever.†
15 So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served them.
16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick,
17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”
