Matthew Chapter Fourteen

1: At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,
 
2: And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
 
3: For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife.
 
4: For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.
 
5: And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.
 
6: But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
 
7: :Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.
 
8: And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist’s head in a charger.
 
9: And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath’s sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.
 
10: And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
 
11: And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.
 
12: And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.
 
13: When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.
 
14: And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
 
15: And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.
 
16: But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
 
17: And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.
 
18: He said, Bring them hither to me.
 
19: And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
 
20: And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
 
21: And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.
 
22: And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.
 
23: And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
 
24: But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
 
25: And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
 
26: And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
 
27: But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
 
28: And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
 
29: And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
 
30: But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
 
31: And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
 
32: And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
 
33: Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
 
34: And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.
 
35: And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;
 
36: And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

Genesis Chapter Thirty Seven

1: And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan.
 
2: These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report.
 
3: Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
 
4: And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.
 
5: And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.
 
6: And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:
 
7: :For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.
 
8: And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
 
9: And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
 
10: And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
 
11: And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.
 
12: And his brethren went to feed their father’s flock in Shechem.
 
13: And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed the flock in Shechem? come, and I will send thee unto them. And he said to him, Here am I.
 
14: And he said to him, Go, I pray thee, see whether it be well with thy brethren, and well with the flocks; and bring me word again. So he sent him out of the vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.
 
15: And a certain man found him, and, behold, he was wandering in the field: and the man asked him, saying, What seekest thou?
 
16: And he said, I seek my brethren: tell me, I pray thee, where they feed their flocks.
 
17: And the man said, They are departed hence; for I heard them say, Let us go to Dothan. And Joseph went after his brethren, and found them in Dothan.
 
18: And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him.
 
19: And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.
 
20: Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.
 
21: And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands; and said, Let us not kill him.
 
22: And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him; that he might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.
 
23: And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;
 
24: And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.
 
25: And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.
 
26: And Judah said unto his brethren, What profit is it if we slay our brother, and conceal his blood?
 
27: Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were content.
 
28: Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.
 
29: And Reuben returned unto the pit; and, behold, Joseph was not in the pit; and he rent his clothes.
 
30: And he returned unto his brethren, and said, The child is not; and I, whither shall I go?
 
31: And they took Joseph’s coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in the blood;
 
32: And they sent the coat of many colours, and they brought it to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be thy son’s coat or no.
 
33: And he knew it, and said, It is my son’s coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.
 
34: And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days.
 
35: And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.
 
36: And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh’s, and captain of the guard.

Genesis Chapter Thirty Eight

1: And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his brethren, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name was Hirah.
 
2: And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her.
 
3: And she conceived, and bare a son; and he called his name Er.
 
4: And she conceived again, and bare a son; and she called his name Onan.
 
5: And she yet again conceived, and bare a son; and called his name Shelah: and he was at Chezib, when she bare him.
 
6: And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was Tamar.
 
7: :And Er, Judah’s firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD slew him.
 
8: And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.
 
9: And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.
 
10: And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.
 
11: Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, Remain a widow at thy father’s house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brethren did. And Tamar went and dwelt in her father’s house.
 
12: And in process of time the daughter of Shuah Judah’s wife died; and Judah was comforted, and went up unto his sheepshearers to Timnath, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite.
 
13: And it was told Tamar, saying, Behold thy father in law goeth up to Timnath to shear his sheep.
 
14: And she put her widow’s garments off from her, and covered her with a vail, and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which is by the way to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him to wife.
 
15: When Judah saw her, he thought her to be an harlot; because she had covered her face.
 
16: And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee; (for he knew not that she was his daughter in law.) And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me?
 
17: And he said, I will send thee a kid from the flock. And she said, Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it?
 
18: And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she said, Thy signet, and thy bracelets, and thy staff that is in thine hand. And he gave it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him.
 
19: And she arose, and went away, and laid by her vail from her, and put on the garments of her widowhood.
 
20: And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullamite, to receive his pledge from the woman’s hand: but he found her not.
 
21: Then he asked the men of that place, saying, Where is the harlot, that was openly by the way side? And they said, There was no harlot in this place.
 
22: And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the men of the place said, that there was no harlot in this place.
 
23: And Judah said, Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed: behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.
 
24: And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.
 
25: When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.
 
26: And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.
 
27: And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb.
 
28: And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread, saying, This came out first,
 
29: And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? this breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.
 
30: And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.

Genesis Chapter Thirty Nine

1: And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.
 
2: And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.
 
3: And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
 
4: And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.
 
5: And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.
 
6: And he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.
 
7: :And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.
 
8: But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;
 
9: There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?
 
10: And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.
 
11: And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.
 
12: And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.
 
13: And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth,
 
14: That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:
 
15: And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.
 
16: And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.
 
17: And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:
 
18: And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.
 
19: And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.
 
20: And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.
 
21: But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
 
22: And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph’s hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it.
 
23: The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper.

Genesis Chapter Forty

1: And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of the king of Egypt and his baker had offended their lord the king of Egypt.
 
  2: And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers.
 
3: And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound.
 
4: And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served them: and they continued a season in ward.
 
5: And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in one night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the prison.
 
6: And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon them, and, behold, they were sad.
 
7: :And he asked Pharaoh’s officers that were with him in the ward of his lord’s house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sadly to day?
 
8: And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.
 
9: And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me;
 
10: And in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it budded, and her blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought forth ripe grapes:
 
11: And Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and pressed them into Pharaoh’s cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand.
 
12: And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of it: The three branches are three days:
 
13: Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head, and restore thee unto thy place: and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh’s cup into his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his butler.
 
14: But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and shew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:
 
15: For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon.
 
16: When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, I had three white baskets on my head:
 
17: And in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of bakemeats for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head.
 
18: And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof: The three baskets are three days:
 
19: Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee.
 
20: And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.
 
21: And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand:
 
22: But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.
 
23: Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.

Psalm Fifteen

1: LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
 
2: He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
 
3: He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
 
4: In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
 
5: He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

Proverbs Chapter Eight

1: Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?
 
2: She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.
 
3: She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.
 
4: Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man.
 
5: O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
 
6: Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.
 
7: :For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
 
8: All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.
 
9: They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.
 
10: Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.
 
11: For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
 
12: I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
 
13: The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
 
14: Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
 
15: By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
 
16: By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
 
17: I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
 
18: Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.
 
19: My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
 
20: I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:
 
21: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.
 
22: The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
 
23: I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
 
24: When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
 
25: Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
 
26: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
 
27: When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
 
28: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
 
29: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
 
30: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
 
31: Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
 
32: Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
 
33: Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
 
34: Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
 
35: For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
 
36: But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
