Book 01 Genesis
01:001:001 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
01:001:002 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was
upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon
the face of the waters.
01:001:003 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
01:001:004 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the
light from the darkness.
01:001:005 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called
Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
01:001:006 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the
waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
01:001:007 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were
under the firmament from the waters which were above the
firmament: and it was so.
01:001:008 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the
morning were the second day.
01:001:009 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered
together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it
01:001:010 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together
of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
01:001:011 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb
yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his
kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
01:001:012 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed
after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in
itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
01:001:013 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
01:001:014 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the
heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for
signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
01:001:015 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to
give light upon the earth: and it was so.
01:001:016 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the
day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars
01:001:017 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light
upon the earth,
01:001:018 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the
light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
01:001:019 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
01:001:020 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving
creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth
in the open firmament of heaven.
01:001:021 And God created great whales, and every living creature that
moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their
kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that
it was good.
01:001:022 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and
fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the
01:001:023 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
01:001:024 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature
after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the
earth after his kind: and it was so.
01:001:025 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle
after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth
after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
01:001:026 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our
likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea,
and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over
all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth
upon the earth.
01:001:027 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God
created he him; male and female created he them.
01:001:028 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and
multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the
air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
01:001:029 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing
seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree,
in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it
shall be for meat.
01:001:030 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air,
and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there
is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was
01:001:031 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was
very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
01:002:001 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host
01:002:002 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he
01:002:003 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because
that in it he had rested from all his work which God created
01:002:004 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when
they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth
and the heavens,
01:002:005 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and
every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had
not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man
to till the ground.
01:002:006 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole
face of the ground.
01:002:007 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and
breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became
a living soul.
01:002:008 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there
he put the man whom he had formed.
01:002:009 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree
that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of
life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of
knowledge of good and evil.
01:002:010 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from
thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
01:002:011 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth
the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
01:002:012 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the
01:002:013 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that
compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
01:002:014 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which
goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is
01:002:015 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of
Eden to dress it and to keep it.
01:002:016 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of
the garden thou mayest freely eat:
01:002:017 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt
not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou
shalt surely die.
01:002:018 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be
alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
01:002:019 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the
field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam
to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called
every living creature, that was the name thereof.
01:002:020 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air,
and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not
found an help meet for him.
01:002:021 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he
slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh
01:002:022 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a
woman, and brought her unto the man.
01:002:023 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my
flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of
01:002:024 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and
shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
01:002:025 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not
01:003:001 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field
which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea,
hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
01:003:002 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit
of the trees of the garden:
01:003:003 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, lest ye die.
01:003:004 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
01:003:005 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your
eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good
01:003:006 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and
that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to
make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and
gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
01:003:007 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they
were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made
01:003:008 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden
in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves
from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the
01:003:009 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where
01:003:010 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was
afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
01:003:011 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou
eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou
shouldest not eat?
01:003:012 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me,
she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
01:003:013 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou
hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I
01:003:014 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, 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 dust shalt
thou eat all the days of thy life:
01:003:015 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between
thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou
shalt bruise his heel.
01:003:016 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and
thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and
thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over
01:003:017 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: cursed is
the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all
the days of thy life;
01:003:018 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and
thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
01:003:019 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou
return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for
dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
01:003:020 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the
mother of all living.
01:003:021 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of
skins, and clothed them.
01:003:022 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us,
to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand,
and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
01:003:023 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden,
to till the ground from whence he was taken.
01:003:024 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the
garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned
every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
01:004:001 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain,
and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
01:004:002 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of
sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
01:004:003 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of
the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
01:004:004 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and
of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to
01:004:005 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain
was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
01:004:006 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is
thy countenance fallen?
01:004:007 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou
doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be
his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
01:004:008 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass,
when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel
his brother, and slew him.
01:004:009 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he
said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?
01:004:010 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s
blood crieth unto me from the ground.
01:004:011 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her
mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;
01:004:012 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield
unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou
be in the earth.
01:004:013 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I
01:004:014 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the
earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a
fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to
pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
01:004:015 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain,
vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a
mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
01:004:016 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in
the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
01:004:017 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and
he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the
name of his son, Enoch.
01:004:018 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and
Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
01:004:019 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was
Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
01:004:020 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in
tents, and of such as have cattle.
01:004:021 And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all
such as handle the harp and organ.
01:004:022 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructor of every
artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was
01:004:023 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my
voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have
slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.
01:004:024 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and
01:004:025 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called
his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another
seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
01:004:026 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called
his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the
01:005:001 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that
God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
01:005:002 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called
their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
01:005:003 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in
his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name
01:005:004 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight
hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:
01:005:005 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty
years: and he died.
01:005:006 And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:
01:005:007 And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven
years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:008 And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years:
and he died.
01:005:009 And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:
01:005:010 And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen
years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:011 And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and
01:005:012 And Cainan lived seventy years and begat Mahalaleel:
01:005:013 And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and
forty years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:014 And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years:
and he died.
01:005:015 And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:
01:005:016 And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and
thirty years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:017 And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and
five years: and he died.
01:005:018 And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat
01:005:019 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and
begat sons and daughters:
01:005:020 And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two
years: and he died.
01:005:021 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:
01:005:022 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three
hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:023 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five
01:005:024 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
01:005:025 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and
01:005:026 And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred
eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:027 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and
nine years: and he died.
01:005:028 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a
01:005:029 And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort
us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the
ground which the LORD hath cursed.
01:005:030 And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and
five years, and begat sons and daughters:
01:005:031 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and
seven years: and he died.
01:005:032 And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham,
01:006:001 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of
the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
01:006:002 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were
fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
01:006:003 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man,
for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred
and twenty years.
01:006:004 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after
that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men,
and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men
which were of old, men of renown.
01:006:005 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth,
and that every imagination of the thoughts o
End of the book.
