REVISERS' PREFACE 



Ihe Revision of the Authorised Version was under- 
taken in consequence of a Resolution passed by both 
houses of the Convocation of the Province of Canterbury, 
as has been fully explained in the Preface to the Revised 
Version of the New Testament, which was first published 
in May, 1881. When the two Companies were appointed 
for carrying out this work, the following General Prin- 
ciples, among others, were laid down by the Revision 
Committee of Convocation for their guidance : — 

* 1. To introduce as few alterations as possible into 
the Text of the Authorised Version consistently with 
faithfulness.' 

'2. To limit, as far as possible, the expression of 
such alterations to the language of the Authorised and 
earlier English Versions.' 

* 4. That the Text to be adopted be that for which the 
evidence is decidedly preponderating; and that when the 
Text so adopted diifers from that from which the Author- 
ised Version was made, the alteration be indicated in the 
margin.' 

^ 7, To revise the headings of chapters and pages, 
paragraphs, italics, and punctuation.' 

In order to shew, the manner in which the Old Testa- 
ment Company have endeavoured to carry out their in- 
structions, it will be convenient to treat the subjects men- 
tioned in the foregoing rules in a somewhat different 
order. 

It will be observed that in Rule 4 the word * Text' is 
used in a different sense from that in Rule 1, and in the 
case of the Old Testament denotes the Hebrew or Ara- 
maic original of the several books. In this respect the 
task of the Revisers has been much simpler than that 
which the New Testament Company had before them. 
The Received, or, as it is commonly called, the Massoretic 
Text of the Old Testament Scriptures has come down to 
us in manuscripts which are of no very great antiquity, 
and which all belong to the same family or recension*. 
That other recensions were at one time in existence is 
probable from the variations in the Ancient Versions, the 
oldest of which, namely the Greek or Septuagint, was 



'The earliest MS. of which the age is certainly known bears date 
A.D. 91& 



made, at least in part, some two centuries before the 
Christian era. But as the state of knowledge on the 
subject is not at present such as to justify any attempt at 
an entire reconstruction of the text on the authority of 
the Versions, the Revisers have thought it most prudent 
to adopt the Massoretic Text as the basis of their work, 
and to depart from it, as the Authorised Translators had 
done', only in exceptional cases.. With regard to the 
variations in the Massoretic Text itself, the Revisers 
have endeavoured to translate what appeared to them to 
be the best reading in the text, and where the alternative 
reading seemed sufficiently probable or important they 
have placed it in the margin. In some few instances of 
extreme difficulty a reading has been adopted on the 
authority of the Ancient Versions, and the departure 
from the Massoretic Text recorded in the margin. In 
other cases, where the versions appeared to supply a very 
probable though not so necessary a correction of the 
text, the text has been left and the variation indicated 
in the margin only. 

In endeavouring to carry out as fully as possible the 
spirit of Rules 1 and 2, the Revisers have borne in mind 
that it was their duty not to make a new translation, but 
to revise one already existing, which for more than two 
centuries and a half had held the position of an English 
classic. They have therefore departed from it only in 
cases where they disagreed with the Translators of 1611 
as to the meaning or construction of a word or sentence ; 
or where it was necessary for the sake of uniformity to 
render such parallel passages as were identical in He- 
brew by the same English words, so that an English 
reader might know at once by comparison that a differ- 
ence in the translation corresponded to a difference in the 
original; or where the language of the Authorised Ver- 
sion was liable to be misunderstood by reason of its be- 
ing archaic or obscure ; or finally, where the rendering of 
an earlier English version seemed preferable, or where 
by an apparently slight change it was possible to bring 
out more fully the meaning of a passage of which the 
translation was already substantially accurate. 



'See, for instance, 2 Sam. xvi. 12 ; 2 Chr. iii. 1, xxii. 6 ; Job zxxyii. 7 ; 

Ezek. xlvi. 10; Am. v. 26; Hag. i. 2.

REVISKRS' PREKACB. 



It has been thought advisable in regard to the word 
* Jehovah ' to follow the usage of the Authorised Version, 
and not to insert it uniformly in place of ' Lord' or ' God', 
which when printed in small capitals represent the words 
substituted by Jewish custom for the ineffable Name ac- 
cording to the vowel points by which it is distinguished. 
It will be found therefore that in this respect the 
Authorised Version has been departed from only in a few 
passages, in which the introduction of a proper name 
seemed to be required. 

Terms of natural history have been changed only 
where it was certain that the Authorised Version was 
incorrect, and where there was sufficient evidence for the 
substituted rendering. In cases of doubt the alternative 
rendering has been given in the margin ; and even where 
no doubt existed, but where there was no familiar En- 
glish equivalent for the original word, the Old Version has 
been allowed to remain', and the more accurate term has 
been placed in the margin. 

In some words of very frequent occurrence, the Au- 
thorised Version being either inadequate or inconsistent, 
and sometimes misleading, changes have been introduced 
with as much uniformity as appeared practicable or de- 
sirable. For instance, * the tabernacle of the congregation ' 
has been every where changed to ' the tent of meeting', on 
account of Exodus xxv. 22, xxix. 42, 43, and also be- 
cause ' the tabernacle of the congregation ' conveys an en- 
tirely wrong sense. The words ' tabernacle ' and ' tent,' 
as the renderings of two different Hebrew words, are in 
the Authorized Version frequently interchanged in such a 
manner as to lead to confusion ; and the Revisers have 
endeavoured throughout the Pentateuch to preserve a con- 
sistent distinction between them. Their practice in re- 
gard to the words ' assembly ' and ' congregation ' has 
been the same in principle, although they have contented 
themselves with introducing greater consistency of ren- 
dering without aiming at absolute uniformity. In con- 
sequence of the changes which have taken place in the 
English language, the term 'meat offering' has become in- 
appropriate to describe an offering of which flesh was no 
part; and by the alteration to 'meal offering' a suf- 
ficiently accurate representation of the original has been 
obtained w'th the least possible change of form. 

As regards the use of words, there are only a few 
cases in which it has been found needful to deviate from 
the language employed in the Authorised Version. One 
of these deviations occurs so frequently that it may be 
well to state briefly why it was adopted. The word * peo- 
ples ' was nowhere used by King James's Translators in 
the Old Testament, and in the New Testament it occurs 

'Ab for instance, ' coney ' (Lev. xi. 6), ' fitches ' (Is. xxviii. 25, 27), 
'gourd' (Jon. iv. 6.) 



only twice (Rev. x. 11, xvii. 15.) The effect of this was 
to leave the rendering of numerous passages inadequate 
or obscure, or even positively misleading. Thus in one of 
the best known Psalms (Ps. Ixvii.), where the Septuagint 
has Xaoi and the Vulgate populi, the English had ' Let the 
people praise thee, God ; let all the people praise thee '; 
leaving it at least doubtful whether the 'nations' of verse 
4, or God's people, Israel, be referred to. And in Isaiah 
Iv. 4, ' Behold, I have given him for a witness to the peo- 
ple, a leader and commander to the people', the word 
'people' is naturally understood by the English reader to 
refer to Israel. 

Again, the Hebrew word goyim 'nations', which is 
applied to the nations of Canaan dispossessed by the 
Hebrews, and then also to the surrounding nations among 
whom the people of Israel were afterwards dispersed, 
acquired in later times a moral significance, which is rep- 
resented in the Authorised Version by the rendering 
'heathen' or 'Gentiles'. While recognizing this moral 
sense of the word, the Revisers have employed it much 
more sparingly than their predecessors had done. 

Similarly, the Hebrew Sheol, which signifies the abode 
of departed spirits, and corresponds to the Greek Hades, 
or the under world, is variously rendered in the Author- 
ised Version by 'grave', 'pit' and 'hell'. Of these ren- 
derings ' hell ', if it could be taken in its original sense as 
used in the Creeds, would be a fairly adequate equiva- 
lent for the Hebrew word; but it is so commonly under- 
stood of the place of torment that to employ it frequently 
would lead to inevitable misunderstanding. The Revis- 
ers therefore in the historical narratives have left the ren- 
dering ' the grave ' or ' the pit ' in the text, with a mar- 
ginal note 'Heb. Sheol' to indicate that it does not sig- 
nify 'the place of burial'; while in the poetical writings 
they have put most commonly 'Sheol' in the text and 
' the grave ' in the margin. In Isaiah xiv. however, where 
'heir is used in more of its original sense and is less 
liable to be misunderstood, and where any change in so 
familiar a passage which was not distinctly an improve- 
ment would be a decided loss, the Revisers have contented 
themselves with leaving 'hell' in the text, and have 
connected it with other passages by putting 'Sheol' in 
the margin. 

In connexion with this it may be mentioned that 
'Abaddon', which has hitherto been known to the En- 
glish reader of the Bible only from the New Testament 
(Rev. ix. 11), has been introduced in three passages (Job 
xxvi. 6; Prov. xv. 11, xxvii. 20), where a proper name 
appears to be required for giving vividness and point. 

The Hebrew word Asherah, which is uniformly and 
wrongly rendered ' grove ' in the Authorised Version, 
most probably denotes the wooden symbol of a goddess;

and the Revisers therefore have not hesitated to intro- 
duce it as a proper name in the singular (Judg. vi. 25, &c.), 
with the plurals Asherim (Ex. xxxiv. 13, &c.) and Ashe- 
roth (Judg. iii. 7, &c.), following the analogy of the 
Baalim (Judg. iii. 7) and the Ashtaroth (Judg. ii. 13), 
which are already familiar. 

In regard to the language of the Authorised Version, 
the Revisers have thought it no part of their duty to re- 
duce it to conformity with modern usage, and have 
therefore left untouched all archaisms, whether of lan- 
guage or construction, which though not in familiar 
use cause a reader no embarrassment and lead to no 
misunderstanding. They are aware that in so doing 
they will disappoint the large English-speaking race on 
the other side of the Atlantic, and it is a question upon 
which they are prepared to agree to a friendly difference 
of opinion. The principle by which they have been 
guided has been clear and consistent. Where an 
archaic word or expression was liable to be misunder- 
stood or at least was not perfectly intelligible, they have 
substituted for it another, in equally good use at the 
time the Authorised Version was made, and expressing 
all that the archaism was intended to convey, but more 
familiar to the modern reader. In such cases the gain 
was greater than the loss. But in other instances where 
the word or expression, although obsolete, was not 
unintelligible, it was thought that the change would 
involve greater loss than gain, and the old rendering 
was therefore allowed to stand. More especially was 
this the case when the archaism was a perfectly correct 
rendering of the original and there was no exact modern 
equivalent for it. The principle adopted by the Com- 
pany will be best illustrated by two typical examples. 
The verb 'to ear' in the sense of Ho plough' and the 
substantive 'earing' for 'ploughing' were very reluc- 
tantly abandoned, and only because it was ascertained that 
their meaning was unknown to many persons of good in- 
telligence and education. But it was easy to put in their 
place equivalents which had a pedigree of almost equal an- 
tiquity, and it would have been an excess of conservatism 
to refuse to substitute for an unintelligible archaism an 
expression to which no ambiguity could be attached. On 
the other hand the word 'boiled' (Ex. ix. 31), which sig- 
nifies ' podded for seed ' and is known in provincial dia- 
lects, has no synonym in literary English. To have dis- 
carded it in favour of a less accurate or more paraphras- 
tic expression would have been to impoverish the language ; 
and it was therefore left, because it exactly expresses one 
view which is taken of the meaning of the original. 

One of the few instances in which the language of the 
Authorised Version has been modified in accordance with 
later usage is the change of the neuter possessive pro- 



noun from 'his' to 'its'. It is well known that 'its' does 
not occur in the Bible of 1611, and it does not appear to 
have been introduced into any edition before 1660. But 
it is found ten times in Shakespeare, and there is other 
evidence to shew that at the time of the Authorised Ver- 
sion it was coming into use. It was found necessary in 
some cases to substitute ' its ' for ' his ' in order to avoid 
obscurity, and there seemed no good reason, when it was 
once introduced, for refusing to admit it generally when it 
referred to purely inanimate objects. 

In making minor changes, whether in translation or 
language, the Revisers have followed the examplg of the 
translators of the Authorised Version, who allowed them- 
selves in this respect a reasonable freedom, without per- 
mitting their liberty to degenerate into license. 

It will be at once seen that the old division of the 
books into chapters and verses has been abandoned in 
favour of the arrangement in paragraphs, the numbering 
of the chapters and verses being however retained for con- 
venience of reference. Where the change of subject 
seemed to require a greater break than was marked by the 
beginning of a new paragraph, it has been indicated by a 
space before the paragraph. Occasionally the divisions of 
the chapters in the Authorised Version differ from those 
in the common Hebrew Bibles. In such cases the varia- 
tions are given in the margin. In the Psalms, the titles 
are printed in smaller type, as in some modern English 
Bibles, which differ in this respect from the edition of 
1611. One consequence of the arrangement in paragraphs 
has been Ihe omission of the headings of chapters, which 
for other and more important reasons it was thought ad- 
visable to abandon, as involving questions which belong 
rather to the province of the commentator than to that 
of the translator. With the headings of chapters the 
head-lines of pages naturally disappeared also, and for the 
same reason. 

In the poetical portions, besides the division into para- 
graphs, the Revisers have adopted an arrangement in 
lines, so as to exhibit the parallelism which is character- 
istic of Hebrew Poetry. But they have not extended 
this arrangement to the prophetical books, the language 
of which although frequently marked by parallelism is, 
except in purely lyrical passages, rather of the nature of 
lofty and impassioned prose. 

In the use of italics the Revisers departed from the 
custom of the Authorised Version and adopted as their 
rule the following resolution of their Company : 

'That all such words now printed in italics, as are 
plainly implied in the Hebrew and necessary in English, 
be printed in common type.' 

But where any doubt existed as to the exact render- 
ing of the Hebrew, all words which have been added in

RKVISERS' PREKACE. 



order to give completeness to the English expression are 
printed in italic type, so that the reader by omitting them 
may be able to see how far their insertion is justified by 
the words of the original. This of course is especially 
true of those renderings for which an alternative is given 
in the margin, where the roman and italic type play ex- 
actly opposite parts. 

To complete the account of the Revised Version it 
remains only to describe the marginal notes. These will 
be found to contain 

(1) The renderings of such variations in the Massor- 
etic Text as appeared to be of sufficient importance. 
These variations are known by the technical names of 
K'ri (read) and C'thib (written), which denote that the 
K'ri, or reading in the margin of the Hebrew Bible, is 
to be substituted for the C'thib which appears in the 
written text. The Revisers have generally, though not 
uniformly, rendered the C'thib in the text, and left the 
K'ri in the margin, with the introductory note ' Or, ac- 
cording to another reading', or 'Another reading is'. 
When the K'ri has been followed in the text, the C'thib 
has been placed in the margin, if it represented a variation 
of sufficient importance. 

(2) Alternative renderings, introduced by ' Or'. 
These are either different meanings of the word or pas- 
sage, or they serve to connect it with other renderings 
elsewhere. 

(3) Literal renderings of the Hebrew or Aramaic, in- 
dicated by the prefix * Heb.' or 'Aram.' 

(4) Changes of text made on the authority of the 
ancient Versions. 

(5) Readings from ancient Versions which appeared 
to be of sufficient importance to be noticed. 

(6) Renderings of the Hebrew consonants as read 
with different vowel points, or as diflferently divided. 
These are introduced by the words ' Or, as otherwise 
read.' 

(7) Marginal references to other passages, which are 
either strictly parallel, or serve the purpose of illustrating 
or justifying a particular rendering. 

(8) Explanations of certain proper names, the mean- 
ing of which is referred to in the text. 

In the Proper Names the Revisers have endeavoured 
to ascertain the system of transliteration adopted by the 
Translators of the Authorised Version and to carry it out 
with somewhat greater consistency. They have not how- 
ever attempted anything like rigid uniformity, and have 
left unchanged all those names which by usage have be- 
come English ; as, for instance, Moses, Aaron, Isaiah, Jer- 
emiah, Ezekiel, and the like. 

Among the Rules laid down by the Revision Com- 
mittee of Convocation for the guidance of the Revisers 



was one that no change should be finally made in the 
text of the Authorised Version except by the vote of 
two-thirds of the Company present and voting; and this 
Rule has been invariably acted upon. The result has 
been that in many cases a rendering which was preferred 
by the majority of the Company voting has been recorded 
in the margin, the majority not being sufficient to give it 
a place in the text. But all questions of marginal read- 
ings, as well as of punctuation and division into para- 
graphs, except where these affected the sense of a pas- 
sage, were decided by a simple majority. 

It may be of some interest to describe the method 
observed by the Company in their work, if only to shew 
that every question raised was carefully and deliberately 
considered. In the first Revision it was the practice for 
the Secretary to read over each verse, first in the original 
and then in the Authorised Version : the proposals for 
change were then taken; first those communicated in 
writing by absent members, and next those made by the 
members present. Each proposal was moved, and if 
seconded was discussed and voted upon; the decision in 
the first Revision being by a majority only. If a pro- 
posal met with no seconder, it was not discussed but 
allowed to drop. In the second Revision, the Secretary 
read out in order the changes which had been made at 
the first Revision ; if these were unchallenged they were 
allowed to remain, otherwise they were put to the vote 
and affirmed or rejected according as they were or were 
not supported by the requisite majority of two-thirds. 
In the second Revision new propositions could only be 
made by special permission of the Company, and discus- 
sion was limited, as far as possible, to exceptional cases. 
In the final review, which was in reality the completion 
of the second Revision, the Company employed them- 
selves in making a general survey of what they had done, 
deciding finally upon reserved points, harmonizing incon- 
sistencies, smoothing down roughnesses, removing unnec- 
essary changes, and generally giving finish and complete- 
ness to their work. Everything in this final survey was 
decided by the vote of a majority of two-thirds. 

The Revisers had already made some progress, and 
had in fact gone twice through the Pentateuch, before 
they secured the co-operation of the American Old Testa- 
ment Revision Company. The first Revision of ihe 
several books was submitted to the consideration of the 
American Revisers, and, except in the case of the Penta- 
teuch, the English Company had the benefit of their 
criticisms and suggestions before they proceeded to the 
second Revision. The second Revision was in like man- 
ner forwarded to America, and the latest thoughts of the 
American Revisers were in the hands of the English 
Company at their final review. In every instance the

suggestions from America were treated with the same 
consideration as those proceeding from members of the 
English Company, and were adopted or rejected on their 
merits. It was a part of the terms of agreement with 
the American Company that all points of ultimate differ- 
ence between them and the English Revisers should be 
placed on record, and they will accordingly be found fully 
stated at the end of the Old Testament, or at the end of 
the several portions, according as the Revised Version 
appears in one or more volumes. Many of them will be 
found to be changes of language which are involved in 
the essentially different circumstances of American and 
English readers ; others express a preference for the mar- 
ginal rendering over that given in the text; others again 
involve a real difference of opinion ; but all shew that 
they have been dictated by the same leading principle, 
the sincere desire to give to modern readers a faithful 
representation of the meaning of the original documents.

It could not bat be expected that in the course of 
fourteen years many changes would take place in the 
members of the Company. Of the original number who 
first put their hands to the work on the 30th of June 
1870, only fifteen now remain. Ten of the Company 
have been removed by death, and two resigned : the 
places of these were filled from time to time by others ; 
but since October 1875 no new members have been 
added. The Revision was completed in eighty-five ses- 
sions, ending on 20th June, 1884 ; and it occupied 792 
days. The greater part of the sessions were for ten days 
each, and each day the Company generally sat for six 
hours. The labour therefore has been great, but it has 
been given ungrudgingly ; and now with a feeling of deep 
thankfulness to Almighty God, and the earnest hope that 
their endeavours may with His blessing tend to a clearer 
knowledge of the Old Testament Scriptures, the Revisers 
bring their long task to a close.

HISTORY 



1 



OF THB 



English Translations of the Bible. 



The earliest attempt to render the Scriptures into the lan- 
guage spoken by the common people in England, was during 
the Anglo-Saxon times, whem Aldhelm, in the seventh century, 
translated the Psalter. Csedmon had already embodied the 
history of the Bible in alliterative meter, but his work can 
scarcely be denominated a translation. The venerable Bede 
spent his last moments in dictating a translation of John's 
Gospel into his mother tongue, and died with the Doxology 
upon his lips when the last lines had been written. King 
Alfred himself reduced to the same language portions of the 
divine law given to the Hebrews, as the basis of his own leg- 
islation ; and other scholars of the realm in the years following 
translated additional portions both of the Old and New Testa- 
ments, so that the whole of the four Gospels was current in the 
Anglo-Saxon. After the Norman Conquest, a prose translation 
of the Bible into Norman French, made about A. D. 1260, in- 
dicates a demand for devotional reading within the circle of the 
court, or of the wealthier merchants, or of convents for women 
of high rank. Further signs of the same desire are found in 
three English versions of the Psalms — one toward the close of 
the thirteenth century, another by Schorham about A. D. 1320, 
and another, with other canticles from the Old and New Tes- 
taments, by Richard Rolle, of Hampole, in Yorkshire, about 
1349. There was also a version of the Gospels of Mark and 
Luke, and of all Paul's Epistles. 

The first translation into what may properly be called 
English — the real beginning of the language as we now speak 
it — was made by John de Wycliffe. He was born A. D. 1324, 
at Wycliffe, in Yorkshire, and was educated at Oxford. He 
became successively master of Baliol College, warden of Can- 
terbury College, and professor of divinity in Oxford Univer- 
sity. His piety and wisdom, as well as his great parts and 
extensive learning, gained for him general reputation; while his 
opposition to the corruptions of the Church of Rome drew down 
on him the vengeance of the prelates and clergy, and involved 
him in a series of troubles, which, in all probability, would 
have resulted in his death, had he not been protected by John 
of Gaunt, the duke of Lancaster, uncle of Richard II. The 
dates of commencing and of concluding the work which has 
made his name so famous in history, can not be determined 
with certainty. He accomplished his task by degrees. He 
began with a translation of the Apocalypse ; next appeared the 
Gospels in English, with a commentary ; then followed the 
other books of the New Testament, which it is believed were 
finished about 1380. A version of the Old Testament, as well 
as of the New, appeared not long afterward, upon which he 
appears to have employed himself, and which is supposed to have 
been completed before 1384. It was on December 28th of this 
year that Wycliffe peacefully died at the Lutterworth' Rectory. 
Forty -one years after his death, his bones were dug up and 



reduced to ashes by order of Richard Fleming, bishop of 
London, according to a decree of the infamous Council of 
Constance, and scattered in the River Avon. 

These efforts to circulate the Word of God in the vernac- 
ular language of the people were jealously discountenanced by 
the papal Church. At the Council of Toulouse in 1229, for 
the first time since the name of Christ was known, the laity 
were openly forbidden to read the Holy Scriptures of the Old 
and New Testament, even in Latin — except that, for the pur- 
poses of devotion, they were permitted to have in that language 
the Psalter or Breviary or " Hours of the Blessed Virgin ;" 
but they were strictly forbidden to have any of these books 
translated into their own tongue. Nevertheless, these prohibi- 
tions did not entirely prevent the circulation of the Scriptures, 
and translations of the whole or of parts were made in several 
countries of Europe. 

The fruit of Wycliffe's labors did not immediately appear, 
but his influence was not confined alone to England. It 
extended to the Continent, particularly to Bohemia, and pre- 
pared the way for the great reformation in Europe a century 
and a half later. Copies of his Bible were multiplied as rapidly 
as the pens of transcribers could do the work, and were 
eagerly sought by all classes of people. A revised translation 
was completed about the year 1388, by John Purvey, assisted 
by others; but both Wycliffe's and Purvey's were made from 
the Latin Vulgate. Wycliffe's Bible was not printed until 
1850. Purvey's was printed for the first time in 1731, and for 
a long time was supposed to be Wycliffe's. As such it was 
printed in Bagster's Hexapla, in 1841. 

The next English version was that of William Tyndale, a 
native of Wales, about the year 1530. Two circumstances in 
his age were favorable to its enlarged circulation — the invention 
of paper and of the art of printing. Erasmus's edition of the 
Greek Testament was then just published, and the Hebrew 
Scriptures were about the same time printed in Italy — ^and 
both were easy to be obtained. Tyndale was a thorough 
scholar, and; instead of making his version at second-hand from 
the Latin, he took it directly from the original tongues. His 
English style is idiomatic and racy. Many of his renderings, 
through long passages, are repeated almost word for word in 
our present authorized version. He is really the father of our 
English Bible. His successors effected many improvements in 
detail, but the plan and spirit of the w^ork have been left un- 
changed. " The peculiar genius," says Fronde, " if such a 
word may be permitted, which breathes through it; the min- 
gled tenderness and majesty; the Saxon simplicity; the pre- 
ternatural grandeur, unequaled, unapproached in the attempts 
of modern scholars — all are here, and bear the impress of one 
man, William Tyndale." To that one man, more than to any 
other, the English language owes its present form and the per^

manenoe of Its vocabulary. He fixed the speechi of the common 
people for all time to come ; and its rhythmic cadence, its poetic 
and picturesque beauty, its strong and nervous expressions, its 
homely and simple phrases, all appear in his work. Tyndale's 
printed version contained the New Testament, the Pentateuch, 
and the prophecy of Jonah, with a few lessons from the Proph- 
ecies] but there is good reason to believe that he left behind 
him in manuscript a translation of the books of the Old Testa- 
ment from Joshua to 2 Chronicles, inclusive. Tyndale's Tes- 
tament was printed in 1525, at Cologne, in quarto, and at 
Worms in octavo. Of each of these editions three thousand 
copies were printed. In 1534 a revised edition was issued at 
Antwerp, with an addition of lessons from the Old Testament. 

Tyndale was in the midst of his labors when he was arrested 
for heretical pravity at Antwerp, by emissaries of the papal 
Church, and committed to the castle of Vilvorde, near Brussels. 
Notwithstanding all the efforts of his friends in England and 
in the Low Countries to procure for him protection, he was 
condemned to death. Rome could not forgive his vigorous 
assaults upon her priestly prerogative and hierarchical author- 
ity. On Friday, October 6, 1536, he was strangled at the stake 
and his body burnt to ashes. 

In 1635 the first translation of the whole Bible ever printed 
in English was completed abroad under the direction of Myles 
Coverdale, and is, therefore, generally called Coverdale's Bible. 
The place of its printing was for many years unknown ; but 
it is believed that the work was executed at Zurich, or at Ant- 
werp, by Jacob Van Meteren, who seems afterward to have 
sold the sheets, type, etc., to James Nicolson, of Southwark, 
England, by whom a second and a third edition were published. 
Coverdale, born in 1488, was an Augustine monk ; but embrac- 
ing the doctrines of the Reformation, he entered into orders, 
and in 1551 was consecrated bishop of Exeter. During the 
persecutions of Queen Mary's time, he was ejected from his see, 
and retired to the Continent, but returned to England in 1568, 
and died in 1569. Coverdale availed himself of the labors of 
others, and made his translations, not from the original Hebrew 
and Greek, but from the Latin Vulgate, the German of Luther, 
Pagninus's Latin version, Leo Juda's Helvetic version (in 
Swiss-German), and from one or two others. Tyndale's text 
is closely followed in the New Testament, but is corrected 
and revised with the help of the other interpreters. 

In 1537 the translations of Tyndale, with those of John 
Rogers, who completed and edited the whole, were published 
in a collected form under the name of Thomas Matthew. 
This edition is known as Matthew's Bible. Much credit is due 
to Rogers, who probably resided at the place of printing (sup- 
posed to be Liibeck), as the careful editor of this Bible ; he 
was evidently a fine scholar, and he seems to have acted both 
as desiring to give his countrymen a translation as correct as 
possible, and likewise to perpetuate the labors of Tyndale, his 
friend and instructor in the truth of the Gospel. In the exe- 
cution of the work, Rogers had the whole of Tyndale's trans- 
lations, whether in print or manuscript, before him. The Old 
Testament is a reprint of Tyndale's Pentateuch ; the remainder, 
as far as the second book of Chronicles, was copied from Tyn- 
dale's manuscripts, which were undoubtedly in Rogers's safe- 
keeping. Coverdale's translation was also followed in the other 



portions of Scripture. This edition, printed in black letter, or 
Old English, is frequently and not inaptly called Tyndale's 
Bible. It appeared with the then much coveted words, " Set 
forth with the king's most gracious license;" hence, it is the 
first properly authorized edition of the English Bible. This 
became the foundation of the text of the version now in com- 
mon use. Rogers was a native of Lancashire, and was born 
about the year 1500. He was educated at Pembroke Hall, 
Cambridge, and was graduated in 1525. Entering into holy 
orders, he became rector, in 1532, of a Church in London, In 
1534 he left England, and went to Antwerp as chaplain of the 
"Merchant Adventurers," where he became acquainted with 
Tyndale. Here he embraced the reformed doctrine, and soon 
afterward broke ofiT completely from Rome, and married. Dur- 
ing the persecutions under Mary, he was tried and condemned 
for heresy, and was the first martyr who suffered death at the 
stake. He was burned alive at Smithfield, February 4, 1555. 
It is supposed that Thomas Matthew was only a name which 
Rogers assumed from prudential motives, lest his known con- 
nection with Tyndale should prove injurious to the under- 
taking. In favor of this view, which has been generally ac- 
cepted, is the fact that in the official record of the apprehension 
of Rogers, he is described as " John Rogers, alias Matthew." 
It is possible, however, that the name is a real one, and be- 
longs to some patron through whose aid the work was under- 
taken. 

So great was the desire of the people to read or hear the 
Word of God, and so few copies could be procured, that in 
1539 another revision of the English Bible was made by 
Richard Taverner, a counselor-at-law and a member of the In- 
ner Temple. He was one of the young men imprisoned in the 
cellar of one of the college buildings in Oxford for reading 
Tyndale's New Testament. Taverner was a scholar, able and 
energetic, but somewhat capricious and uncertain. In 1552, 
though a layman, he received from Edward VI. a general 
license to preach. We are told that he preached before the 
king at court, and in some other places in the kingdom, wear- 
ing a velvet bonnet or round cap, a damask gown, and a chain 
of gold about his neck ; in which habit he was seen and heard 
preaching several times in St. Mary's Church, Oxford, in the 
beginning of the reign of Elizabeth. During Mary's reign 
Taverner prudently remained in retirement. Elizabeth showed 
him marks of special favor, and made him high sheritf of the 
county of Oxford. He died in the year 1575. His Bible, 
known as Taverner's Bible, was allowed to be publicly read la 
the churches, and is only a revision of Matthew's Old Testa- 
ment and Tyndale's New Testament. His changes are more 
numerous in the latter than in the former. Thus, in Matthew, 
chapters xxi,xxii, containing ninety-two verses, there are about 
forty variations, of which one-third are retained in the version 
now in use. In some of these changes his object was to remove 
superfiuous words ; in others, to give a more terse or expressive 
phrase, or a more literal rendering from the Greek. Taver- 
ner's Bible was published both in folio and quarto ; his New 
Testament in quarto and in octavo in the same year. 

The Great Bible, so called from its size, being larger than 
any of the editions in folio previously published, was prepared 
by direction of Thomas Cromwell, chief minister of state

ra 



under Henry VIII. It was a revision of Matthew's Bible, and 
was executed under the supervision of Coverdale, as corrector 
of the press. It was first issued in April, 1539, by Richard 
Grafton and Edward Whitchurch, printers. Cromwell, though 
not noted for piety, was a friend of the Reformation, and had a 
deep veneration for the Scriptures. Worldly, ambitious, and 
unscrupulous, he opposed the aggressions of the papal Church, 
and broke up the monasteries, which had become nests of cor- 
ruption. He was rapidly advanced by the king, who created 
him Earl of Essex ; but, being convicted of treason, he was put 
to death soon after attaining that honor. A second edition of 
this Bible was published in 1540, with a preface written by 
Archbishop Cranmer, and has been named Cranmer's Bible. 
This edition, of which only five hundred copies were printed, 
differed but slightly from the first, and the two are sometimes 
confounded. It continued to be the authorized English ver- 
sion (except, of course, during the reign of Mary) until 1568, 
when it was superseded by the Bishops' Bible. 

The Geneva Bible, issued in 1560, is so called from the fact 
that it was translated and printed in Geneva by certain learned 
Englishmen who fled thither about the year 1556 to escape the 
persecutions of Queen Mary's reign. The exiles in Geneva, to 
whom this work is attributed, were William Whittingham, 
Anthony Gilby, Myles Coverdale, Thomas Sampson, Christo- 
pher Goodman, Thomas Cole, John Knox, John Bodleigh, and 
John Pullain. The principal part of the work was executed by 
Whittingham, Gilby, and Sampson. This version became very 
popular, and probably one hundred and thirty editions were 
issued. It was the first English Bible divided into verses. 
The example for doing this was set in the New Testament 
printed at the same city three years previously. This transla- 
tion differed from all that had preceded it, not only in its plan, 
but also in its execution. The other versions had been gen- 
erally the work or revision of an individual, or, at most, a re- 
vision in which certain individuals executed certain particular 
parts. In this translation many acted unitedly in the forma- 
tion of a version, and in the plan of operation there was a 
principle of completeness which had not heretofore been acted 
on. Still, the basis of the translation was Tyndale's ; but, with 
the scholarly labor bestowed upon it, the Geneva Bible was 
more accurate than any of its predecessors, and long held its 
popularity in England, even after the present authorized ver- 
sion was in use. It discarded the old black-letter type, and 
was printed from Roman type, which was soon adopted in all 
the printing-offices which published English books. 

The next version was superintended by Matthew Parker, 
archbishop of Canterbury, and is sometimes called by his name. 
It was first published in 1568, and was executed with great care 
by more than fifteen men, whose names occur at the end of the 
portions prepared by them. From the fact that the majority 
of those engaged in its preparation were bishops, it has been 
named the Bishops' Bible. It continued to be the version 
authorized to be read in the churches for forty-three years; but 
in private use it never displaced the Geneva version. Its 
preparation seems to have extended over a period of three or 
four years. The basis of the translation was the Great Bible, 
but many of the corrections and improvements were taken 
from the Geneva version. 



We have already noticed the opposition on the part of the 
papal Church to the general diffusion of the Word of God. 
But Rome had thundered in vain. What did she do? In 
1582 she printed, or allowed to be printed, at Rheims, an 
English New Testament, "translated out of Latin, with notes 
and necessary helps." In 1609 the Old Testament also made 
its appearance, at Douay. The Rhemish New Testament, as the 
version printed at Rheims is called, was prepared at the 
English Roman Catholic College, then established at that place, 
and afterwards at Douay, by Gregory Martin, a distinguished 
Hebrew and Greek scholar. His translation was made from 
the Vulgate, and in his work he was assisted by Dr. William 
Allen, the founder of the college. Dr. Reynolds, Dr. Bristow, 
and Dr. Worthington. The last two are supposed to be the 
authors of the " Notes," which are bitterly controversial. The 
translation is literal, and, as a rule, scrupulously faithful and 
exact, but disfigured by a profusion of unfamiliar and Latin- 
ized words, which convey no meaning whatever to the ordinary 
English reader. This last peculiarity strikes the eye at the 
first opening of the volume. But from this version, unfamiliar 
as many of its words are, our translators obtained some of 
their happiest expressions. Nothing is easier than to accu- 
mulate instances of the eccentricity of its renderings, or of their 
obscure and inflated style ; but a minute study of its pages will 
afford evidence of the care with which the translators have ex- 
ecuted their work. "Every other English translation," says 
Dr. Moulton, in his History of the English Bible, " is to be 
preferred to this, if it is to be taken as a whole; but no other 
English version will prove more instructive to the student who 
will take the pains to separate what is good and useful from 
what is ill-advised and wrong." 

W^hen King James I. came to the throne of England he 
took measures to secure a uniform translation of the Scrip- 
tures, and appointed fifty-four of the most learned men of his 
kingdom to proceed with the work. The result of their labors 
was published in 1611; and being commanded by authority to 
be used in the churches, it soon became the standard transla- 
tion for English-speaking people. This is the translation now 
called " the Authorized Version." But in process of time numerous 
errors were discovered in it, and new manuscripts of the original 
came to light. It was long thought by scholars that a new 
version should be made; and, accordingly, the subject of re- 
vision was brought by Professor Selwyn before the lower 
House of Convocation of the province of Canterbury in 1856, 
but his proposals then met with little favor. 

No action was taken until 1870, when the matter was in- 
trusted to a committee, consisting of eight members of the 
upper house and sixteen of the lower. They reported favor- 
ably ; and the convocation then nominated a committee of eight 
members of each house to undertake the work of revision. 
They associated with them a number of the best scholars in 
Great Britain and America, and divided themselves into two 
companies for the revision oi the Old Testament and New 
Testament respectively. The New Testament Company first 
concluded its labors, and published the revision in 1881. The 
Old Testament revision was not completed until 1884. The 
Authorized and Revised VersioTns appear together in parallel 
columns on the following pages.

We have sinned, and have committed Iniquity, and have done 
wickedly, aud hjive rebelled, even by departing from thy pre-

not In us. 

We are all as an unclean thing. 

SUPPLICATION. 

God be merciful unto us, and bless us ; and cause his face to 
shine upon us. ... 

Wilt thou not revive us again, that thy people may rejoice m 
thee? , ,. 

Show us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation. 

INTERCESSION. 

Let the people praise thee, O God ; let all the people praise thee. 
Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end ; but estab- 
lish the Just.

ADORATION. 

I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. 

The Lord Is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my 

God, my strength, In whom I will trust ; my buckler, and the 

horn of my salvation, and my high tower. 
Truly my soul walteth upon God ; from him cometh my salva- 

He only Is my rock and my salvation ; he Is my defence; I shall 
not be greatly moved. 

CONFESSION. 

I acknowledge my transgression, and my sin Is ever before me. 
For 1 know that In me, that Is In my tlesh, dwelleth no good 

thing ; for to will Is present with me ; but how to perform that 

which is good I find not. 
O wretched man that I am, who shall deliver me from the body 

of this death? 
Behold, 1 am vile; what shall I answer thee? 1 will lay my 

hand upon my mouth. 

SUPPLICATION. 

God be merclfu! to me a sinner. 

Create In me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit 

within me. 
Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness ; 

according uuto the multitude of thy tender mercies, blot out 

my transgressions. 
For thy name s sake, O Lord, pardon mine Iniquity, for it is 

great ! 
Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine Iniquities. 
Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions ; 

according to th.y mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' 

sake, O Lord. 
Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy 

spirit from me. 
Restore unto me the Joy of thy salvation, and uphold me with 

thy free spirit. 

Lord, open thou my lips, aud my mouth shall show forth tby 
praise. 

Hold up my goings In thy paths, that my footsteps slip not. 

Hear my voice according unto thy loving kindness; O Lord, 
quicken me according to thy Judgment. 

Let my soul live, and It shall praise thee; and let thy Judg- 
ments help me. 

1 have gone astray like a lost sheep ; seek thy servant ; for I do 
not forget thy commandments. 

Search me, O God. and know my heart; try me, and know my 

thoughts; 
And see If there be any wicked way In me, and lead me In the 

way everlasting. 
Show me thy ways, O Lord, teach me thy paths. 
Lead me In thy truth, and leach me; for thou art the God of my 

salvation ; on thee do 1 wait all the day. 
Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out 

of thy law. 
Oh that thou wouldst bless me Indeed, and enlarge my coast, 

and that thine hand might be with me, aud that thou wouldst 

keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me ! 



Gen. xxxll.26. 1 will not lei thee go, except thou bless me. 

Prov. XXX.8. I Remove far from me vanity aud lies; give me neither poverty 

i nor riches ; feed me with food couveuient for me. 
Prov. XXX. 9. Lest I be full, and deny thee, aud say, Who is the Lord ? or lest 

I be poor, aud steal, and take the name of my God in vain. 
Job xvl. 22. When a few years are come, then I shall go the way whence 1 

shall not return. 
Psa. xxxlx.4. Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, 

what it is, that I may know bow frail 1 am. 

INTERCESSION. 

Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ In sin- 
cerity. 

Do good, O Lord, unto those that be good, and to them that are 
upright In their hearts. 

Oh that thou wouldst rend the heavens, that thou wouldst come 
down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence. 

Oh send out thy light and thy truth. 

Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens ; let thy glory be 
above al I the earth. 

Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only doeth 
wondrous things. 

And blessed be bis glorious name for ever; and let the whole 
earth be filled with his glory. Amen and Amen. 

THANKSGIVING. 

I waited patiently for the Lord ; and he Inclined unto me, and 
heard my cry. 

Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou 
hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward : tlie.y can- 
not be reckoned up In order unto thee ; If I would declare and 
speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. 

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God ! how great 
Is the sum of them 1 

If I should count them, they are more In number than the sand 
when I awake, 1 am still with thee. 

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that Is within me, bless his 
holy name. 

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. 

Who forgiveth all thine Iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases. 

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction : who crowneth thee 
with lovlng-klndness and tender mercies. 

What shall 1 render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? 

I will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the 
Lord. 

All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord, and thy saints shall 

For the Lord taketh pleasure In his people, he will beautify the 
meek with salvation. 

DEDICATION. 

Lord, truly I am thy servant ; 1 am thy servant, and the son 
of thine handmaid : thou hast loosed my bonds. 

1 will walk before the Lord In the laud of the living. 

DOXOLOGY. 

Now unto thy King eternal, Immortal, Invisible, the only wise 

God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen. 
To God, only wise, be glory, through Jesus Christ, for ever. A men.

Beheaded in May or June. 

The date of the beheading of Paul is placed in the 
14th of Nero's reign. Dionysius, bishop of Corinth, 
A. D. 170, says that Peter and Paul went to lt»ily, 
preached together there, and suffered martyrdom about 
the same time. Cains of Rome, in the 2d century, 
names the grave of Peter on the Vatican, and of Paul 
on theOstian Way; and others, as Eusebius, Tertullian 
and Jerome, agree in this account. The locality around 
Paul's grave is now used as a cemet«y for strangers 
who die in Rome. 

The principle which harmonises all tht aeta, and 
preaching, and letters of Paul, was a belief in Jwos as 
the Divine Spirit — a living Master, intimat«ly reUted 
to every living soul, of whose Gospel he was the special 
Messenger. This purified his love of his own peopk 
and opened his heart toward all mankind.

CHAPTER I. 

Creation of heaven and earth, and of man in the image of God. 

IN the "beginning ''God created the heaven and the earth. 
2 And the earth was without form, and void ; and dark- 
ness was upon the face of the deep. "And the Spirit of God 
moved upon the face of the waters. 

3 ^''And God said, *Let there be light : and there was light. 

4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God 
divided fthe light from the darkness. 

5 And God called the light-'' Day, and the darkness he called 
Night. fAnd the evening and the morning were the first day. 

6 ^And God said, "Let there be a ffirmament in the midst 
of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 

7 And God made the firmament, ''and divided the waters 
which were under the firmament from the watets which were 
above the firmament : and it was so. 

8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening 
and the morning were the second day. 

9 ^And God said, *Let the waters under the heaven be 
gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land 
appear : and it was so. 

10 And God called the dry land Earth ; and the gathering 
together of the waters called he Seas : and God saw that it 
was good. 

1 1 And God said, Let the earth 'bring forth fgrass, the lib.'b 
yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding '"fruit after his kind, 
whose seed is in itself, upon the earth : and it was so. 

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 saw that it was good. 

13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. 

14 ^[And God said, Let there be "lights in the firmament 
of the heaven, to divide fthe day from the night ; and let 
them be for signs, and "for seasons, and for days, and years : 

15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the 
heaven to give light upon the earth : and it was so. 

16 And God ''made two great lights; the greater light fto 
rule the day, and 'the lesser light to rule the night : he made 
"■the stars also. 

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to 
give light upon the earth, 

18 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. 

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 

20 ^And God said. Let the waters bring forth abundantly 
the II moving creature that hath flife, and ffowl that may fly 
above the earth in the fopen firmament of heaven. 

21 And "God created great whales, and every living crea- 
ture that moveth, which the waters brought forth abun- 
dantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his 
kind : and God saw that it was good. 

22 And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful, and mul- 
tiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply 
in the earth. 

23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. 

24 ^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. 



THE FIRST BOOK OF MOSES, 



COMMONLY CALLED 



GENESIS. 



-I- In the beginning God created the heaven and the 

2 earth. And the earth was waste and void; and 

darkness was upon the face of the deep: and the 

spirit of God 'moved upon the face of the waters. 

3 And God said. Let there be light: and there was 

4 light. And God saw the light, that it was good: 

and God divided the light from the darkness. 

5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he 
called Night. And there was evening and there was 
morning, one day. 

6 And God said, Let there be a ^firmament in the 
midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from 

7 the waters. And God made the firmament, and 
divided the waters which were under the firmament 
from the waters which were above the fii-mament : and 

8 it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. 
And there was evening and there was morning, a 
second day. 

9 And God said. Let the waters under the heaven 
be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry 

10 land appear: and it was so. And God called the 
dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the 
waters called he Seas : and God saw that it was 

11 good. And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, 
herb yielding seed, and fruit tree bearing fruit after 
its kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth : 

12 and it was so. And the earth bi'ought forth grass, 
herb yielding seed after its kind, and tree bearing 
fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after its kind : and 

13 God saw that it was good. And there was evening 
and there was morning, a third day. 

14 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 

15 and years: and let them be for lights in the firma- 
ment of the heaven to give light upon the earth : 

16 and it was so. And God made the two great lights ; 
the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light 

17 to rule the night: he made the stars also. And 
God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give 

18 light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and 
over the night, and to divide the light from the dark- 

19ness: and God saw that it was good. And there 
was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. 

20 And God said. Let the waters 'bring forth abun- 
dantly the moving creature that hath life, and let fowl 
fly above the earth *in the open firmament of heaven. 

21 And God created the great sea-monsters, and every 
living creature that moveth, which the waters brought 
forth abundantly, after their kinds, and every winged 
fowl after its kind : and God saw that it was good. 

22 And God blessed them, saying. Be fruitful, and mul- 
tiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl 

23 multiply in the earth. And there was evening and 
there was morning, a fifth day. 

24 And God said. Let the earth bring forth the living 
creature after its kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and 
beast of the earth after its kind: and it was so.

25 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. 

26 ^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. 

27 So God created man in his own image, ^in the image 
of God created he him ; "male and female created he them. 

28 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 fmoveth 
upon the earth. 

29 ^And God said. Behold, I have given you every herb 
fbearing 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. 

30 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 flife) -^ ^^^''^ given every green herb for 
meat: and it was so. 

31 And 'God saw every thing that he had made, and be- 
hold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning 
were the sixth day. 

CHAPTER II. 

The garden of Eden — Naming the creatures— Making of woman. 

THUS the heavens and the earth were finished, and "all 
the host of them. 

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

3 And God "^blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it : be- 
cause that in it he had rested from all his work which God 
fcreated and made. 

4 ^''These are the generations of the heavens and of the 
earth when they were created, in the day that the Loed God 
made the earth and the heavens, 

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 rain upon the earth, and there was 
not a man "to till the ground. 

6 But II there went up a mist from the earth, and watered 
the whole face of the ground. 

7 And the Lord God formed man fo/ the Must of the 
ground, and 'breathed into his ^nostrils the breath of life ; and 
'man became a living soul. 

8 ^And the Lord God planted ""a garden "eastward in 
"E'den ; and there ''he put the man whom he had formed. 

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 tree of life also in the midst of the garden, 'and the tree 
©f knowledge of good and evil. 

10 ^ And a river went out of E'den to water the garden ; and 
from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. 

11 The name of the first is Pi'son : that is it which com- 
passeth "the whole land of Hav'i-lah, where there is gold ; 

12 And the gold of that land is good : ""there is bdellium 
and the onyx stone. 

13 And the name of the second river is Gi'hon : the same 
is it that compasseth the whole land of fE-thi-o'pi-a. 

14 And the name of the third river is ^Hid'de-kel : that is it 
which goeth || toward the east of As-syr'i-a. And the fourth 
river is Eu-phra'tes. 

15 ^And the Lord God took || the man, and "put him into 
the garden of E'den, to dress it and to keep it. 

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of 
every tree of the garden fthou mayest freely eat : 



25 And God made the beast of the earth after its kind, 
and the cattle after their kind, and every thing that 
creepeth upon the ground after its kind : and God saw 

26 that it was good. And God said. Let us make man 
in our image, after our likeness: and let them have 
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl 
of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, 
and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the 

27 earth. And God created man in his own image, in 
the image of God created he him; male and female 

28 created he them. And God blessed them: and 
God said unto them. Be fruitful, and multiply, and 
replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have 
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl 
of the air, and over every living thing that 'moveth 

29 upon the earth. And God said. Behold, I have 
given you every herb yielding 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 

30 it shall be for meat: 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, / have 
given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, 
behold, it was very good. And there was evening 
and there was morning, the sixth day. 

•4 And the heaven and the earth were finished, and 

2 all the host of them. And on the seventh day God 
finished his work which he had made ; and he rested 
on the seventh day from all his work which he had 

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

4 These are the generations of the heaven and of 
the earth when they were created, in the day that 

5 'the Lord God made earth and heaven. And no 
plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb 
of the field had yet sprung up: for the Lord God 
had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there 

6 was not a man to till the ground; but there went 
up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole 

7 face of the ground. And the Lord God formed man 
of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his 
nostrils the breath of life ; and man became a living 

8 soul. And the Lord God planted a garden east- 
ward, in E'den; and there he put the man whom 

9 he had formed. 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 the knowledge 

lOof good and evil. And a river went out of E'den to 
water the garden; and from thence it was parted. 

Hand became four heads. The name of the first is 
Pi'shon : that is it which compasseth the whole land 

12 of Hav'i-lah, where there is gold; and the gold of 
that land is good : there is bdellium and the *onyx 

13 stone. And the name of the second river is Gi'-hon : 
the same is it that compasseth the whole land of 

14 Cush. And the name of the third river is "Hid'- 
de-kel : that is it which goeth 'in front of As-syr'i-a. 

15 And the fourth river is Eu-phra'tes. And the 
Lord God took the man, and put him into the 

16 garden of E'den to dress it and to keep it. And 
the Lord God commanded the man, saying. Of 
every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

should be alone : "I will make him a help fmeet for him. 

19 'And out of the ground the Lord God formed every 
beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and ■'^ brought

whatsoever Ad'am called every living creature, that was the 
name thereof. 

20 And Ad'am fgave names to all cattle, and to the fowl

there was not found a help meet for him. 

21 ^And the Lord God caused a "deep sleep to fall upon 
Ad'am, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed 
up the flesh instead thereof. 

22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from 
man, fmade he a woman, and '•brought her unto the man. 

23 And Ad'am said, This is now 'bone of my bones, and 
flesh of my flesh : she shall be called fWoman, because she 
was *taken out of fnian. 

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

25 ""And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and 
were not "ashamed. 

CHAPTER III. 

The serpent deceiveth Eve — Man' s /all and banishment from pat adise. 

"^TOW "the serpent was ''more subtile than any beast of 
-Li the field which the Lord God had made. And he said 
unto the woman, fYea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of 
every tree of the garden ? 

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of 
the fruit of the trees of the garden : 

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, lest ye die. 

4 ''And the serpent said unto the woman. Ye shall not 
surely die : 

5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then 
'your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, know- 
ing good and evil. 

6 ^And when the woman saw that the tree was good for 
food, and that it was fpleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be 
desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, •'iand 
did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her ; "and he 
did eat. 

7 And *the eyes of them both were opened, 'and they 
knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves 
together, and made themselves || aprons. 

8 And they heard *the voice of the Lord God walking in 
the garden in the fcool of the day : and Ad'am and his wife 
'hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst 
the trees of the garden. 

9 ^And the Lord God called unto Ad'am, and said unto 
him. Where art thou? 

10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, ""and 1 
was afraid, because I was naked ; and I hid myself. 

11 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 ? 

12 And the man said, "The woman whom thou gavest to 
be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. 

13 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 did eat. 

14 ^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 : 



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 die. 

18 And the Lord God said. It is not good that the 
man should be alone ; I will make him an help 'meet 

19 for him. And out of the ground the Lord God 
formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the 
air ; and brought them unto the man to see what he 
would call them : and whatsoever the man called 
every living creature, that was the name thereof. 

20 And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the 
fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field ; but for 
^man there was not found an help meet for him. 

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon 
the man, and he slept ; and he took one of his ribs, 

22 and closed up the flesh instead thereof: and the 
rib, which the Lord God had_ taken from the man, 
'made he a woman, and brought her unto the 

23 man. And the man said. This is now bone 
of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she. shall be 
called ■'Woman, because she was taken out of ^Man 

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his 
mother, and shall cleave unto his wife : and tlrey 

25 shall be of one flesh. And they were both naked, 
the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. 

^ 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 

2 shall not eat of "^any tree of the garden ? And the 
woman said unto the serpent. Of the fruit of the 

3 trees of the garden we may eat : 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 

4 touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto 
6 the woman. Ye shall not surely die : for God doth 

know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your 
eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as 'God, 

6 knowing good and evil. And when the woman 
saw that the tree was good for food, and that it 
was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was 
*to be desired to make one wise, she took of the 
fruit thereof, and did eat; and she gave also unto 

7 her husband with her, and he did eat. And the 
eyes of them both were opened, and they knew 
that they were naked ; and they sewed fig leaves 

8 together, and made themselves 'aprons. And they 
heard the '"voice of the Lord God walking in the 
garden in the "cool of the day : and the man and 
his wife hid themselves from the presence of the 

9 Lord God amongst the trees of the garden. And 
the Lord God called unto the man, and said unto 

10 him. Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy 
'"voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I 

11 was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who 
told thee that thou wast naked ? Hast thou eaten 
of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou 

12 shouldest not eat? And the man said. The woman 
whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of 

13 the tree, and I did eat. And the Lord God said 
unto the woman. What is this thou hast done? 
And the woman said. The serpent beguiled me, 

14 and I did eat. And the Lord God said unto 
the serpent. Because thou hast done this, cursed 
art thou '^above all ca;ttle, and '^above every beast 
of the field ; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and 
dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life :

15 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. 

16 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 thee. 

17 And unto Ad'am 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 ; 

18 "^Thorns also and thistles shall it fbring forth to thee ; 
and *thou shalt eat the herb of the field : 

19 •'^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. 

20 And Ad'am called his wife's name t|| Eve; because she 
was the mother of all living. 

21 Unto Ad'am also and to his wife did the Lord God 
make coats of skins, and clothed them. 

22 ^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: 

23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden 
of E'den, 'to till the ground from whence he was taken. 

24 So he drove out the man : and he placed "at the east of 
the garden of E'den "cher'u-bim, and a flaming sword which 
turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life. 

CHAPTER IV. 

The murder of Abel and the curse of Cain. 

AND Ad'am knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and 
bare 1| Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. 

2 And she again bare his brother f A'bel. And A'bel was 
fa keeper of sheep, but Cain was a "tiller of the ground. 

3 And fin process of time it came to pass, that Cain 
brought 'of the fruit of the ground an oifering unto the Lord. 

4 And A'bel, he also brought of "the firstlings of his fflock 
and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had ''respect unto 
A'bel and to his offering : 

5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect, 
and Cain was very wroth, 'and his countenance fell. 

6 And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? 
and why is thy countenance fallen ? 

7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not |] be accepted? and if 
thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door: and || unto thee 
shall he his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. 

8 And Cain talked with A'bel his brother: and it came to 
pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against 
A'bel his brother, and -'^slew him. 

9 ^And the Lord said unto Cain, "Where is A'bel thy 
brother? And he said, ''I know not: Am I my brother's 
keeper ? 

10 And he said, What hast thou done ? the voice of thy 
brother's fblood 'crieth unto me from the ground. 

11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath 
opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy 
hand. 

12 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. 

13 And Cain said unto the Lord, ||My punishment i« 
greater than I can bear. 

14 *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. 



15 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 

16 heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly 
multiply thy sorrow and thy conception ; in sor- 
row thou shalt bring forth children ; and thy 
desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall 

17 rule over thee. And unto Ad'am he said, Be 
cause thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy 
wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I com 
manded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it 
cursed is the ground for thy sake; in ^toil shalt 

18 thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also 
and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou 

19 shalt eat the herb of the field; in the sweat of thy 
face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the 
ground ; for out of it wast thou taken : for dust 

20 thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. And 
the man called his wife's name ^Eve; because she 

21 was the mother of all living. And the Lord God 
made for Adam and for his wife coats of skins, and 
clothed them. 

22 And the Lord God said. Behold, the man is be- 
come as one of us, to know good and evil ; and 
now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the 

23 tree of life, and eat, and live for ever : therefore the 
Lord God sent him forth from the garden of E'den, 

24 to till the ground from whence he was taken. So 
he drove out the man ; and he placed at the east of 
the garden of E'den the Cher'u-bim, and the flame of 
a sword which turned every way, to keep the way 
of the tree of life. 

^ And the man knew Eve his wife; and she con- 
ceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have ^gotten a 

2 man with the help of the Lord. And again she 
bare his brother A'bel. And A'bel was a keeper of 

3 sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in 
process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought 
of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord. 

4 And A'bel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock 
and of tJie fat thereof. And the Lord had respect 

5 unto A'bel and to his offering: but unto Cain and 
to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was 

6 very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the 
Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and 

7 why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest 
well, 'shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou 
doest not well, sin coucheth at the door: and 
unto thee ^shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule 

8 over him. And Cain ^told A'bel his brother. And 
it came to pass, when they were in the field, that 
Cain rose up against A'bel his brother, and slew 

9 him. And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is 
A'bel thy brother ? And he said, I know not : am 

101 my brother's keeper? And he said. What hast thou 
done ? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto 

1 1 me from the ground. And now cursed art thou 
from the ground, which hath opened her mouth to 

12 receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; when 
thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield 
unto thee her strength ; a fugitive and a wanderer 

13 shalt thou be in the earth. And Cain said unto 
the Lord, *My punishment is greater 'than I can 

14 bear. Behold, thou hast driven me out this day 
from the face of the ground; and from thy face 
shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a 
wanderer in the earth ; and it shall come to 
pass, that whosoever findeth me shall slay me.

15 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. 

16 ^And Cain "went out from the presence of the Lord, 
and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of E'den. 

17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare 
fE'noch : and he builded a city, 'and called the name of 
the city, after the name of his son, E'noch. 

18 And unto E'noch was born I'rad : and I'rad begat 
Me-hu'ja-el : and Me-hu'ja-el begat Me-thu'sa-el : and Me- 
thu'sa-el begat fLa'mech. 

19 ^And La'mech took unto him two wives : the name of 
the one was A'dah, and the name of the other Zil'lah. 

20 And A'dah bare Ja'bal : he was the father of such as 
dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. 

21 And his brother's name was Ju'bal : he was the ''father 
of all such as handle the harp and organ. 

22 And Zil'lah, she also bare Tu'bal-cain, an finstructor of 
every artificer in brass and iron : and the sister of Tu'bal- 
cain wets Na'a-mah. 

23 And La'mech said unto his wives, A'dah and Zil'lah, 
Hear my voice; ye wives of La'mech, hearken unto my 
speech: for ||I have slain a man to my wounding, and a 
young man ||to my hurt. 

24 'If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly La'mech 
seventy and sevenfold. 

25 ^And Ad'am knew his wife again, and she bare a son, 
and 'called his name f II Seth : For God, said she, hath ap- 
pointed me another seed instead of A'bel, whom Cain slew. 

26 And to Seth, "to him also there was born a son ; and 
he called his name fE'nos: then began men || "to calJ upon 
the name of the Lord. 

CHAPTER V. 

Thg genealogy, age, and death of the Patriarchs from Adam unto Noah. 

THIS is the "book of the generations of Ad'am. In the day 
that God created man, in 'the likeness of God made he him; 

2 "Male and female created he them ; and blessed them, and 
called their name Ad'am, in the day when they were created. 

3 And Ad'am lived a hundred and thirty years, and begat 
a son in his own likeness, after his image ; and ''called his 
name Seth : 

4 *And the days of Ad'am after he had begotten Seth 
were eight hundred years : -^and he begat sons and daughters : 

5 And all the days that Ad'am lived were nine hundred 
and thirty years : "and he died. 

6 And Seth lived a hundred and five years, and *begat 
E'nos : 

7 And Seth lived after he begat E'nos eight hundred and 
seven years, and begat sons and daughters : 

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

9 ^And E'nos lived ninety years, and begat fCai'nan. 

10 And E'nos lived after he begat Cai'nan eight hundred 
and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters : 

1 1 And all the days of E'nos were nine hundred and five 
years : and he died. 

12 TJAnd Cai'nan lived seventy years, and begat fMa- 
ha'la-le-el : 

13 And Cai'nan lived after he begat Ma-ha'la-le-el eight 
hundred and forty years, and begat sons and daughters : 

14 And all the days of Cai'nan were nine hundred and ten 
years : and he died. 

15 ^And Ma-ha'la-Ie-el lived sixty and five years, and begat 
t Ja'red : 

16 And Ma-ha'la-le-el lived after he begat Ja'red eight hun- 
dred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters : 

17 And all the days of Ma-ha'la-le-el were eight hundred 
ninety and five years : and he died. 



15 And the Lord said unto him. Therefore whosoever 
slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sev- 
enfold. And the Lord appointed a sign for Cain, 
lest any finding him should smite him. 

16 And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, 
and dwelt in the land of 'Nod, ^on the east of E'den. 

17 And Cain knew his wife-: and she conceived, and 
bare E'noch : and he builded a city, and called the 
name of the city, after the name of his son, E'noch. 

18 And unto E'noch was born I'rad: and I'rad begat 
Me-hu'ja-el : and Me-hu'ja-el begat Me-thu'sha-el : 

1 9 and Me-thu'sha-el begat La'mech. And La'mech took 
unto him two wives : the name of the one was A'dah, 

20 and the name of the other Zil'lah. And A'dah bare 
Ja'bal : he was the father of such as dwell in tents 

21 and have cattle. And his brother's name was Ju'bal : 
he was the father of all such as handle the harp and 

22 pipe. And Zil'lah, she also bare Tu'bal-cain, 'the 
forger of every cutting instrument of ''brass and 
iron : and the sister of Tu'bal-cain was Na'a-mah. 

23 And La'mech said unto his wives: 
A'dah and Zil'lah, hear my voice ; 
Ye wives of La'mech, hearken unto my speech : 
For ■'^I have slain a man '''for wounding me, 
And a young man for bruising me : 

24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold. 
Truly La'mech seventy and sevenfold. 

25 And Ad'am knew his wife again ; and she bare a son, 
and called his name 'Seth : For, said she, God *hath 
appointed me another seed instead of A'bel ; for Cain 

26 slew him. And to Seth, to him also there was born 
a son ; and he called his name E'nosh : then began 
men to call upon the name of the Lord. 

O This is the book of the generations of Ad'am. In 
the day that God created man, in the likeness of 

2 God made he him; male and female created he 
them ; and blessed them, and called their name 

3 'Ad'am, in the day when they were created. And 
Ad'am lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat 
a son in his own likeness, after his image ; and called 

4 his name Seth : and the days of Ad'am after he 
begat Seth were eight hundred years : and he begat 

5 sons and daughters. And all the days that Ad'am 
lived were nine hundred and thirty years : and he 
died. 

6 And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and 

7 begat E'nosh : and Seth lived after he begat E'nosh 
eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and 

8 daughters : and all the days of Seth were nine hun- 
dred and twelve years: and he died. 

9 And E'nosh lived ninety years, and begat Ke'nan : 
10 and E'nosh lived after he begat Ke'nan eight hundred 

and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters : 
Hand all the days of E'nosh were nine hundred and 

five years : and he died.

CHAPTER VI. 

Wickedness of the world— God's wrath— Order and form of the ark. 

AND it came to pass, "when men began to mu'.tiply on 
the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they 
were fair; and they Hook them wives of all which they chose. 

3 And the Lord said, "My Spirit shall not always strive 
with man, ''for that he also is flesh : yet his days shall be a 
hundred and twenty years. 

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 renown. 

5 ^And God saw that the wickedness of man was great 
in the earth, and that || every ''imagination of the thoughts 
of his heart was only evil fcontinually. 

6 And ^it repented the Lord that he had made man on 
the earth, and it "grieved him at his heart. 

7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have 
created from the face of the earth ; fboth man and beast, 
and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it re- 
pen teth me that I have made them. 

8 But No'ah *found grace in the eyes of the Lord. 

9 ^[These are the generations of No'ah: 'No'ah was a just 
man and || perfect in his generations, and No'ah * walked 
with God. 

10 And No'ah begat three sons, 'Shem, Ham, and Ja'pheth. 

11 The earth also was corrupt "before God; and the earth 
was "filled with violence. 

12 And God "looked upon the earth, and behold, it was 
corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. 

13 And God said unto No'ah, ''The end of all flesh is come 
before me; for the earth is filled with violence through 
them; 'and behold, I will destroy them || with the earth. 

14 ^Make thee an ark of gopher wood; frooms shalt 
thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without 
with pitch. 



18 And Ja'red lived an hundred sixty and two years, 

19 and begat E'noch: and Ja'red lived after he begat 

E'noch eight hundred years, and begat sons and 

20 daughters : and all the days of Ja'red were nine hun- 
dred sixty and two years : and he died. 

21 And E'noch lived sixty and five years, and begat 

22 Me-thu'se-lah : and E'noch walked with God after he 
begat Me-thu'se-lah three hundred years, and begat 

23 sons and daughters : and all the days of E'noch were 
24 three hundred sixty and five years: and E'noch 

walked with God: and he was not; for God took 
him. 

25 And Me-thu'se-lah lived an hundred eighty and 

26 seven years, and begat La'mech : and Me-thu'se-lah 
lived after he begat La'mech seven hundred eighty 

27 and two years, and begat sons and daughters : and all 
the days of Me-thu'se-lah were nine hundred sixty and 
nine years : and he died. 

28 And La'mech lived an hundred eighty and two 

29 years, and begat a son : and he called his name No'ah, 
saying. This same shall 'comfort us for our work and 
for the toil of our hands, ^because of the ground 

30 which the Lord hath cursed. And La'mech lived 
after he begat No'ah five hundred ninety and five 

31 years, and begat sons and daughters : and all the days 
of La'mech were seven hundred seventy and seven 
years : and he died. 

32 And No'ah was five hundred years old : and No'ah 
begat Shem, Ham, and Ja'pheth. 

v^ And it came to pass, when men began to multiply 
on the face of the ground, and daughters were born 

2 unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters 
of men that they were fair; and they took them 

3 wives of ail that they chose. And the Lord said. 
My .spirit shall not ^strive with man for ever, *for that 
he also is flesh : ^yet shall his days be an hundred 

4 and twenty years. The ^Neph'i-lim were 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 were the mighty 

5 men which were of old, the men of renown. And 
the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great 
in the earth, and that every imagination of the 

6 thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. A nd 
it repented the Lord that he had made man on the 

7 earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord 
said, I will Me.stroy man whom I have created from 
the face of the ground ; both man, and beast, and 
creeping thing, and fowl of the air ; for it repenteth 

8 me that I have made them. But No'ah found grace 
in the eyes of the Lord. 

9 These are the generations of No'ah. No'ah was a 

10 righteous man, and 'perfect in his generations : No'ah 
walked with God. And No'ah begat three sons, Shem, 

1 1 Ham, and Ja'pheth . And the earth was corrupt before 

12 God, and the earth was filled with violence. And 
God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt ; for 
all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. 

13 And God said unto No'ah, The end of all flesh 
is come before me; for the earth is filled with 
violence through them ; and, behold, I will destroy 

14 them with the earth. Make thee an ark of 
gopher wood; 'rooms shalt thou make in the ark, 
and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: 
The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the 
breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 

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 lower, second, and third 
stories shalt thou make it. 

17 'And behold, 1, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon 
the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, 
from under heaven: and every thing that is in the earth 
shall die. 

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

19 And of every living thing of all flesh, 'two of every 
sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with 
thee; they shall be male and female. 

20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, 
of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind ; two of 
every sort "shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. 

21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and 
thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for 
thee, and for them. 

22 "Thus did No'ah; "according to all that God com- 
manded him, so did he. 

CHAPTER VII. 

Noah, his family, and living creatures enter the ark — The flood. 

AND the LoED said unto No'ah, "Come thou and all thy 
house into the ark ; for 'thee have I seen righteous before 
me in this generation. 

2 Of every 'clean beast thou shalt take to thee by fsevens, 
the male and his female : ''and of beasts that are not clean 
by two, the male and his female. 

3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the 
female ; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. 

4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the 
earth 'forty days and forty nights ; and every living sub- 
stance that I have made will I fdestroy from off the face 
of the earth. 

5 ^And No'ah did according unto all that the Lobd com- 
manded him. 

6 And No'ah was six hundred years old when the .flood 
of waters was upon the earth. 

7 ^"And No'ah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his 
sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of 
the flood. 

8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of 
fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth, 

9 There went in two and two unto No'an into the ark, the 
male and the female, as God had commanded No'ah. 

10 And it came to pass || after seven days, that the waters 
of the flood were upon the earth. 

11 l[In the six hundredth year of No'ah's life, in the 
second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same 
day were all ''the fountains of the great deep broken up, and 
II 'the windows of heaven were opened. 

12 *And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty 
nights. 

13 In the selfsame day 'entered No'ah, and Shem, and 
Ham, and Ja'pheth, the sons of No'ah, and No'ah's wife, and 
the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark ; 

14 ™They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle 
after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon 
the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every 
bird of every fsort. 

15 And they "went in unto No'ah into the ark, two and 
two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life. 

16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all 



15 And this is how thou shalt make it: the length 
of the ark three hundred cubits, the breadth of 
it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 

16 A 'light shalt thou make to the ark, and to a 
cubit shalt thou finish it ^upward ; and the door 
of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; 
with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou 

17 make it. And I, behold, I do bring the flood of 
waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein 
is the breath of life, from under heaven ; every thing 

18 that is in the earth shall die. But I will establish 
my covenant with thee ; and thou shalt come into 
the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy 

19 sons' wives with thee. And of every living thing of 
all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the 
ark, to keep them alive with thee ; they shall be male 

20 and female. Of the fowl after their kind, and of the 
cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the 
ground after its kind, two of every sort shall come 

21 unto thee, to keep them alive. And take thou unto 
thee of all food that is eaten, and gather it to thee ; 

22 and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. Thus 
did No'ah ; according to all that God commanded 
him, so did he. 

♦ And the Lord said unto No'ah, Come thou and all 
thy house into the ark ; for thee have I seen right- 

2eous before me in this generation. Of every clean 
beast thou shalt take to thee seven and seven, the 
male and his female ; and of the beasts that are not 

3 clean two, the male and his female ; of the fowl also 
of the air, seven and seven, male and female : to keep 

4 seed alive upon the face of all the earth. For yet 
seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth 
forty days and forty nights ; and every living thing 
that I have made will I 'destroy from off the face of 

5 the ground. And No'ah did according unto all that 
the Lord commanded him. 

6 And No'ah was six hundred years old when the 

7 flood of waters was upon the earth. And No'ah 
went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' 
wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters 

8 of the flood. Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are 
not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that 

9 creepeth upon the ground, there went in two and two 
unto No'ah into the ark, male and female, as God 

10 commanded No'ah. And it came to pass after the 
seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon 

11 the earth. In the six hundredth year of No'ah's life, 
in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the 
month, on the same day were all the fountains of the 
great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven 

1 2 were opened. And the rain was upon the earth 

13 forty days and forty nights. In the selfsame day 
entered No'ah, and Shem, and Ham, and Ja'pheth, 
the sons of No'ah, and No'ah's wife, and the three 

14 wives of his sons with them, into the ark ; they, 
and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle 
after their kind, and every creeping thing that 
creepeth upon the earth after its kind, and every 

15 fowl after its kind, every bird of every *sort. And 
they went in unto No'ah into the ark, two and two 

16 of all flesh wherein is the breath of life. And 
they that went in, went in male and female of all

him in. 

17 ''And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the 
waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lifted up 
above the earth. 

18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly 
upon the earth ; 'and the ark went upon the face of the waters. 

19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth ; 
"■and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, 
were covered. 

20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the 
mountains were covered. 

21 'And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of 
fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing 
that creepeth upon the earth, and every man : 

22 All in 'whose nostrils was fthe breath of life, of all 
that was in the dry land, died. 

23 And every living substance was destroyed which was 
upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the 
creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven ; and they were 
destroyed from the, earth: and "No'ah only remained alive, 
and they that were with him in the ark. 

24 ""And the waters prevailed upon the earth a hundred 
and fifty days. 

CHAPTER VIII. 

The ark resteth on Ararat — Noah buildeth an altar, and offereth sacrifice. 

AND God "remembered No'ah, and every living thing, and 
all the cattle that was with him in the ark : ''and God made 
a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged. 

2 "The fountains also of the deep, and the windows of heaven 
were stopped, and ''the rain from heaven was restrained. 

3 And the waters returned from off the earth fcontinu- 
ally: and after the end "of the hundred and fifty days the 
waters were abated. 

4 ^And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seven- 
teenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ar'a-rat. 

5 And the waters fdecreased continually until the tenth 
month : in the tenth month, on the fii'st day of the month, 
were the tops of the mountains seen. 

6 ^And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that No'ah 
opened -^the window of the ark which he had made : 

7 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth fto and 
fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth. 

8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters 
were abated from off the face of the ground. 

9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and 
she returned unto him into the ark ; for the waters ^vere on 
the face of the whole earth. Then he put forth his hand, and 
took her, and fpulled her in unto him into the ark. 

10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he 
sent forth the dove out of the ark. 

11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, 
in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so No'ah knew 
that the waters were abated from off the earth. 

12 And he stayed yet other seven days, and sent forth 
the dove, which returned not again unto him any more. 

13 %And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first 
year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the 
waters were dried up from off the earth : and No'ah re- 
moved the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, 
the face of the ground was dry. 

14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth 
day of the month, was the earth dried. 

15 ^And God spake unto No'ah, saying, 

16 Go forth of the ark, "thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, 
and thy sons' wives with thee. 

1? Bring forth with thee *every living thing that is with 
thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every 
creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth ; that they may 



flesh, as God commanded him : and the Loed 

17 shut him in. And the flood was forty days upon 
the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up 

18 the ark, and it was lift up above the earth. And 
the waters prevailed, and increased greatly upon the 
earth ; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. 

19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; 
and all the high mountains that were under the whole 

20 heaven were covered. Fifteen cubits upward did 
the waters prevail ; and the mountains were covered. 

21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both 
fowl, and cattle, and beast, and every 'creeping thing 

22 that creepeth upon the earth, and every man : all in 
whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, of 

23 all that was in the dry land, died. ^And every living 
thing was ^destroyed which was upon the face of the 
ground, both man, and cattle, and creeping thing, 
and fowl of the heaven ; and they were 'destroyed 
from the earth: and No'ah only was left, and they 

24 that were with him in the ark. And the waters 
prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty 
days. 

O And God remembered No'ah, and every living 
thing, and all the cattle that were with him in the 
ark : and God made a wind to pass over the earth, 

2 and the waters assuaged; the fountains also of the 
deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and 

3 the rain from heaven was restrained ; and the waters 
returned from off the earth continually : and after 
the end of an hundred and fifty days the waters 

4 decreased. And the ark rested in the seventh 
month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon 

5 the mountains of Ar'a-rat. And the waters decreased 
continually until the tenth month : in the tenth 
month, on the first day of the month, were the tops 

6 of the mountains seen. And it came to pass at the 
end of forty days, that No'ah opened the window of 

7 the ark which he had made : and he sent forth a 
raven, and it went forth to and fro, until the waters 

8 were dried up from off the earth. And he sent forth 
a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated 

9 from off the face of the ground ; but the dove found 
no lest for the sole of her foot, and she returned 
unto him to the ark, for the waters were on the face 
of the whole earth : and he put forth his hand, and 
took her, and brought her in unto him into the ark. 

10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he 

11 sent forth the dove out of the ark; and the dove 
came in to him at eventide ; and, lo, in her mouth 
%u olive leaf pluckt off: so No'ah knew that the 

12 waters were abated from off the earth. And he 
stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the 
dove ; and she returned not again unto him any 

13 more. And it came to pass in the sixth hundred and 
first year, in the first month, the first day of the 
month, the waters were dried up from off the earth : 
and No'ah removed the covering of the ark, and 
looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was 

14 dried. And in the second month, on the seven and 
twentieth day of the month, was the earth dry. 

le And God spake unto No'ah, saying, Go forth 
of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, 
17 and thy sons' wives with thee. Bring forth 
with thee every living thing that is with thee of 
all flesh, both fowl, and cattle, and every creeping 
thing that creepeth upon the earth ; that they may

upon the earth. 

18 And No'ah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and 
his sons' wives with him : 

19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, mid 
whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their fkinds, 
went forth out of the ark. 

20 ^And No'ah builded an altar unto the Lord ; and took 
of *every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered 
burnt oiierings on the altar. 

21 And the Lord smelled 'a fsweet 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. 

22 "fWhile the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, 
and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and 'day and 
night shall not cease. 

CHAPTER IX. 

God's covenant signified by the rainbow — Noah replenisheth the world. 

AND God blessed No'ah and his sons, and said unto them, 
"Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. 

2 'And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be 
upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the 
air, upon all that moveth wpon the earth, and upon all the 
fishes of the sea ; into your hand are they delivered. 

3 ""Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you ; 
even as the ''green herb have I given you 'all things. 

4 -^But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood 
thereof, shall ye not eat. 

5 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. 

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

7 And you, ""be ye fruitful, and multiply ; bring forth 
abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein. 

8 ^And God spake unto No'ah, and to his sons with him, 
saying, 

9 And I, "behold, I establish "my covenant with you, and 
with your seed after you ; 

10 "Aud with every living creature that is with you, of the 
fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you ; 
from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. 

11 And "I will establish my covenant with you; neither 
shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood ; 
neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. 

12 And God said, ''This is the token of the covenant 
which I make between me and you and every living 
creature that is with you, for perpetual generations : 

13 I do set 'my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a 
token of a covenant between me and the earth. 

14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over 
the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud : 

15 And "I will remember my covenant, which is between 
me and you and every living creature of all flesh ; and the 
waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 

16 And the bow shall be in the cloud ; and I will look upon 
it, that I may remember ""the everlasting covenant between 
God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. 

17 And God said unto No'ah, This is the token of the cov- 
enant, which I have established between me and all flesh 
that is upon the earth. 

18 ^And the sons of No'ah, that went forth of the ark, 
were Shem, and Ham, and Ja'pheth : ^and Ham is the father 
of fCa'naan.

the whole earth overspread.

and his wife, and his sons' 

every beast, every creeping

thing, and every fowl, whatsoever moveth upon 
the earth, after their families, went forth out of 

20 the ark. And No'ah builded an altar unto the 
Lord ; and took of every clean beast, and of every 
clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the 

21 altar. And the Lord smelled the sweet savour; 
and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again 
curse the ground any more for man's 'sake, for that 
the imagination of man's heart is evil from his 
youth; neither will I again smite any more every 

22 thing living, as I have done. While the earth 
remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, 
and summer and winter, and day and night shall not 
cease. And God blessed No'ah and his sons, and 
said unto them. Be fruitful, and multiply, and replen- 

2ish the earth. And the fear of you and the dread of 
you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon 
every fowl of the air; with all wherewith the ground 
Heemeth, and all the fishes of the sea, into your 

3 hand are they delivered. Every moving thing that 
liveth shall be food for you ; as the green herb have 

41 given you all. But flesh -with the life thereof, 

6 which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. And 
surely your blood, the blood of your lives, will I 
require ; at the hand of every beast will I require it ; 
and at the hand of man, even at the hand of every 

6 man's brother, will I require the life of man. Whoso 
sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be 

7 shed : for in the image of God made he man. And 
you, be ye fruitful, and multiply ; bring forth abun- 
dantly in the earth, and multiply therein. 

8 And God spake unto No'ah, and to his sons with 

9 him, saying. And I, behold, I establish my covenant 
10 with you, and with your seed after you; and with 

every living creature that is with you, the fowl, the 
cattle, and every beast of the earth with you ; of all 
that go out of the ark, even every beast of the earth. 

11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither 
shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of 
the flood; neither shall there any more be a flood 

12 to destroy the earth. And God said. This is the 
token of the covenant which I make between me and 
you and every living creature that is with you, for 

13 perpetual generations: ^I do set my bow in the 
cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant 

14 between me and the earth. And it shall come to 
pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the 

15 bow .shall be seen in the cloud, and I will remember 
my covenant, which is between me and you and 
every living creature of all flesh; and the waters 
shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 

16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look 
upon it, that I may remember the everlasting cove- 
nant between God and every living creature of all 

17 flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto 
No'ah, This is the token of the covenant which I 
have established between me and all flesh that is 
upon the earth. 

18 And the sons of No'ah, that went forth of the ark, 
were Shem, and Ham, and Ja'pheth : and Ham is the 

19 father of Ca'naan. These three were the sons of 
No'ah : and of these was the whole earth overspread.

20 And No'ah began to be "a husbandman, and he planted 
a vineyard : 

21 And he drank of the wine, 'and was drunken ; and he 
was uncovered within his tent. 

22 And Ham, the father of Ca'naan, saw the nakedness of 
his father, and told his two brethren without. 

23 "And Shem and Ja'pheth took a garment, and laid U 
upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered 
the nakedness of their father; and their faces were back- 
ward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. 

24 And No'ah awoke from his wine, and knew what his 
younger son had done unto him. 

25 And he said, ''Cursed be Ca'naan; 'a servant of servants 
shall he be unto his brethren. 

26 And he said, -^Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and 
Ca'naan shall be 1| his servant. 

27 God shall || enlarge Ja'pheth, "and he shall dwell in the 
tents of Shem ; and Ca'naan shall be his servant. 

28 ^And No'ah lived after the flood three hundred and 
fifty years. 

29 And all the days of No'ah were nine hundred and fifty 
years: and he died. 

CHAPTER X. 

The generations of Noah — Nimrod the first monarch, 

"VTOW these are the generations of the sons of No'ah : 
iA Shem, Ham, and Ja'pheth : "and unto them were sons 
born after the flood. 

2 'The sons of Ja'pheth ; Go'mer, and Ma'gog, and Mad'a-i, 
and Ja'van, and Tu'bal, and Me'shech, and Ti'ras. 

3 And the sons of Go'mer ; Ash'ke-naz, and Ri'phath, and 
To-gar'mah. 

4 And the sons of Ja'van ; E-li'shah, and Tar'shish, Kit'tim, 
and ||Do-da'nim. 

5 By these were "^he isles of the Gen'tiles divided in their 
lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in 
their nations. 

6 ^''And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Miz'ra-im, and 
Phut and Ca'naan. 

7 And the sons of Cush ; Se'ba, and Hav'i-lah, and Sab'tah, 
and Ra'a-mah, and Sab'te-cha : and the sons of Ra'a-mah ; 
She'ba, and De'dan. 

8 And Cush begat Nim'rod : he began to be a mighty one 
in the earth. 

9 He was a mighty 'hunter -^before the Lord : wherefore 
it is said. Even as Nim'rod the mighty hunter before the 
Lord. 

10 'And the beginning of his kingdom was fBa'bel, and 
E'rech, and Ac'cad, and Cal'neh, in the land of Shi'nar. 

11 Out of that land || went forth As'shur, and builded 
Nin'e-veh, and || the city Re-ho'both, and Ca'lah, 

12 And Re'sen between Nin'e-veh and Ca'lah : the same i« 
a great city.

bim, and Naph'tu-him, 

14 And Path-ru'sim, and Cas-lu'him (*out of whom came 
Phi-lis'tim,) and Caph'to-rim. 

15 ^And Ca'naan begat fSi'don his firstborn, and Heth, 

16 And the Jeb'u-site, and the Am'o-rite, and the Gi r'ga-site, 

17 And the Hi'vite, and the Ark'ite, and the Sin'ite, 

18 And the Ar'va-dite, and the Zem'a-rite, and the Ham'- 
ath-ite : and afterward were the families of the Ca'naan-ites 
spread abroad. 

19 'And the border of the Ca'naan-ites was from Si 'don, as 
thou comest to Ge'rar, unto fGa'za; as thou goest unto 
Sod'om and Go-mor'rah, and Ad'mah, and Ze-bo'im, even 
unto La'sha. 

20 These art the sons of Ham, afi«r their femilies, aft«r 
their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.

21a vineyard: and he drank of the wine, and was 

drunken ; and he was uncovered within his tent. 

22 And Ham, the father of Ca'naan, saw the naked-

laid it upon both their shoulders, and went back-

and their faces were backward, and they saw not 

24 their father's nakedness. And No'ah awoke from 
his wine, and knew what his 'youngest son had 

25 done unto him. And he said, 

Cursed be Ca'naan; 
A servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. 

26 And he said, 

.Blessed be the LoED, the God of Shem; 
And let Ca'naan be ^his servant.

And 'let him dwell in the tents of Shem; 
And let Ca'naan be ^his servant. 

28 And No'ah lived after the flood three hundred 

29 and fifty years. And all the days of No'ah were 
nine hundred and fifty years: and he died. 

iv Now these are the generations of the sons of 
No'ah, Shem, Ham, and Ja'pheth: and unto them 
were sons born after the flood. 

2 The sons of Ja'pheth ; Go'mer, and Ma'gog, and 
Mad'a-i, and Ja'van, and Tu'bal, and Me'shech, and 

3 Ti'ras. And the sons of Go'mer; Ash'ke-naz, and 

4 ^Ri'phath, and To-gar'mah. And the sons of Ja'van ; 
E-li'shah, and Tar'-shish, Kit'tim, and 'Do-da'nim 

5 Of these were the ^isles of the nations divided in 
their lands, every one after his tongue; after their 
families, in their nations. 

6 And the sons of Ham ; Cush, and Miz'ra-im, and

and Hav'i-lah, and Sab'tah, and Ra'a-mah, and Sab'

8 And Cush begat Nim'rod : he began to be a mighty 

9 one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before 
the Lord: wherefore it is said. Like Nim'rod 

10 mighty hunter before the Lord. And the begin- 
ning of his kingdom was Ba'bel, and E'rech, and 

11 Ac'cad, and Cai'neh, in the land of Shi'nar. Out 
of that land "he went forth into As-syr'i-a, and builded 

1 2 Nin'e-veh, and Re-ho'both-Ir, and Ca'lah, and Re'sen 
between Nin'e-veh and Ca'lah (the same is the great 

13 city). And Miz'ra-im begat Lu'dim, and An'a-mim,

and Cas-lu'him (whence went forth *the Phi-lis'tines), 
and Caph'to-rim.

17ga-shite; and the Hi'vite, and the Ark'ite, and the 
18 Sin'ite; and the Ar'va-dite, and the Zem'a-rite, and 

the Ham'ath-ite: and afterward were the families 

19 of the Ca'naan-ite spread abroad. And the border 
of the Ca'naan-it« was from Zi'don, as thou goest 
toward Ge'rar, unto Ga'za ; as thou goest toward 
Sod'om and Go-mor'rah and Ad'mah and Ze-bo'i-im,

was II Pe'leg; for in his days was the earth divided ; and his

31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after 
their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.

generations, in their nations : "and by these were the nations 
divided in the earth after the flood. 

CHAPTER XI. 

Building- the tower of Babel— The confusion of tongues. 

AND the whole earth was of one flanguage, and of 
one fspeech. 

2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed || from the east, 
that they found a plain in the land of Shi'nar; and they 
dwelt there. 

3 And fthey said one to another. Go to, let us make 
brick, and fburn them thoroughly. And they had brick 
for stone, and slime had they for mortar. 

4 And they said. Go to, let us 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. 

5 'And the Lord came down to see the city and the 
tower, which the children of men builded. 

6 And the Lord said. Behold, ''the people is one, and they 
have all ''one language ; and this they begin to do : and 
now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have 
'imagined to do. 

7 Go to, -'^let us go down, and there confound their lan- 
guage, that they may "not understand one another's speech. 

8 So Hhe Lord scattered them abroad from thence 'upon 
the face of all the earth : and they left oiF to build the city. 

9 Therefore is the name of it called || Ba'bel: ^because the 
Lord did there confound the language of all the earth : and 
from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the 
face of all the earth. 

10 Tl 'These are the generations of Shem : Shem was a hun- 
dred years old, and begat Ar-phax'ad two years after the flood : 

11 And Shem lived after he begat Ar-phax'ad five hundred 
years, and begat sons and daughters. 

12 And Ar-phax'ad lived five and thirty years, ""and begat 
Sa'lah. 

13 And Ar-phax'ad lived after he begat Sa'lah four hundred 
and three years, and begat sons and daughters. 

14 And Sa'lah lived thirty years, and begat E'ber : 

15 And Sa'lah lived after he begat E'ber four hundred and 
three years, and begat sons and daughters. 

1 6 "And E'ber lived four and thirty years, and begat "Pe'leg : 

17 And E'ber lived after he begat Pe'leg four hundred and 
thirty years, and begat sons and daughters. 

18 And Pe'leg lived thirty years, and begat Re'u : 

19 And Pe'leg lived after he begat Re'u two hundred and 
nine years, and begat sons and daughters. 



E'ber 'the elder brother of Ja'pheth, to him also 

22 were children born. The sons of Shem; E'lam, 

and As'shur, and Ar-pach'shad, and Lud, and A'ram. 

23 And the sons of A'ram ; Uz, and Hul, and Ge'ther, 

24 and Mash. And Ar-pach'shad ^begat She'lah; and 
25She'lah begat E'ber. And unto E'ber were born 

two sons: the name of the one was 'Pe'leg; for in 
his days was the earth divided; and his brother's 

26 name was Jok'tan. And Jok'tan begat Al-mo'dad, 

27 and She'leph, and Ha-zar-ma'veth, and Je'rah ; and 
28 Ha-do'ram, and U'zal, and Dik'lah; and *0'bal, and 
29 A-bim'a-el, and She'ba ; and 0'phir,and Hav'i-lah,and 
30 Jo'bab: all these were the sons of Jok'tan. And 

their dwelling was from Me'sha, as thou goest 

31 toward Se'phar, the 'mountain of the east. These 
are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their 
tongues, in their lands, after their nations. 

32 These are the families of the sons of No'ah, after 
their generations, in their nations : and of these 
were the nations divided in the earth after the 
flood, 

J-i And the whole earth was of one 'language and of 
2 one 'speech. And it came to pass, as they jour- 
neyed *east, that they found a plain in the land of 
3 Shi'nar; and they dwelt there. And they said one 
to another. Go to, let us make brick, and burn them 
throughly. And they had brick for stone, and 
4 'slime had they for mortar. And they said. Go 
to, let us 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 

5 whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the 
city and the tower, which the children of men 

6 builded. And the Lord said. Behold, they are 
one people, and they have all one language; and 
this is what they begin io do : and now nothing 
will be withholden from them, which they purpose 

7 to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound 
their language, that they may not understand one 

8 another's speech. So the Lord scattered them 
abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth 

9 and they left off to build the city. Therefore was 
the name of it called Ba'bel ; because the Lord did 
there '"confound the language of all the earth : and 
from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad 
upon the face of all the earth. 

10 These are the generations of Shem. Shem was 
an hundred years old, and begat Ar-pach'shad two 

11 years after the flood: and Shem lived after he 
begat Ar-pach'shad five hundred years, and begat 
sons and daughters. 

12 And Ar-pach'shad lived five and thirty years, and 

13 begat She'lah : and Ar-pach'shad lived after he begat 
She'lah four hundred and three years, and begat 
sons and daughters. 

14 And She'lah lived thirty years, and begat E'ber: 

15 and She'lah lived after he begat E'ber four hundred 
and three years, and begat sons and daughters. 

16 And E'ber lived four and thirty years, and begat 
17 Pe'leg: and E'ber lived after he begat Pe'leg four 

hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and 
daughters. 

18 And Pe'leg lived thirty years, and begat Re'u: 

19 and Pe'leg lived after he begat Re'u two hundred 
and nine years, and begat sons and daughters.

20 And Re'u lived two and thirty years, and begat "Se'rug : 

21 And Re'u lived after he begat Se'rug two hundred and 
seven years, and begat sons and daughters. 

2'2 And Se'rug lived thirty years, and begat Na'hor : 

23 And Se'rug lived after he begat Na'hor two hundred 
years, and begat sons and daughters. 

24 And Na'hor lived nine and twenty years, and begat 
"Te'rah : 

25 And Na'hor lived after he begat Te'rah a hundred and 
nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters. 

26 And Te'rah lived seventy years, and "^begat A'bram, 
Na'hor, and Ha'ran. 

27 ^Now these are the generations of Te'rah : Te'rah 
begat A'bram, Na'hor, and Ha'ran ; and Ha'ran begat Lot. 

28 And Ha'ran died before his father Te'rah in the land of 
his nativity, in Ur of the Chal'dees. 

29 And A'bram and Na'hor took them wives : the name of 
A'bram's wife was "Sa'rai; and the name of Na'hor's wife, 
'Mil'cah, the daughter of Ha'ran, the father of Mil'cah, and 
the father of Is'cah. 

30 But "Sa'rai was barren ; she had no child. 

31 And Te'rah "took A'bram his son, and Lot the son of 
Ha'ran his son's son, and Sa'rai his daughter in law, his son 
A'bram's wife ; and they went forth with them from *Ur of 
the Chal'dees, to go into "the land of Ca'naan ; and they 
came unto Ha'ran, and dwelt there. 

32 And the days of Te'rah were two hundred and five 
years: and Te'rah died in Ha'ran. 

CHAPTER XII. 

God calteik Abram, and blesseth him — He buildeth an altar unto the Lord. 

I^OW the "LoED had said unto A'bram, Get thee out of thy 
-Ll country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's 
house, unto a land that I will shew thee : 

2 ''And I will make of thee a great nation, "and I will bless 
thee, and make thy name great ; ''and thou shalt be a blessing : 

3 'And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him 
that curseth thee : -^and in thee shall all families of the earth 
be blessed. 

4 So A'bram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him ; 
and Lot went with him : and A'bram was seventy and five 
years old when he departed out of Ha'ran. 

6 And A'bram took Sa'rai his wife, and Lot his brother's 
son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and 
"the souls that they had gotten ''in Ha'ran ; and they went 
forth to go into the land of Ca'naan ; and into the land of 
Ca'naan they came. 

6 ^And A'bram 'passed through the land unto the place 
of Si'chem, *unto the plain of Mo reh. 'And the Ca'naan-ite 
was then in the land. 

7 "And the Lobd appeared unto A'bram, and said, "Unto 
thy seed will I give this land : and there builded he an 
"altar unto the Lord, who appeared unto him. 

8 And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the 
east of Beth-el, and pitched his tent, having Beth-el on the 
west, and Ha'i on the east : and there he builded an altar 
unto the Lord, and "called upon the name of the Lord. 

9 And A'bram journeyed, fgoing on still toward the south. 

10 ^And there was ""a famine in the land : and 'A'bram 
went down into E'gypt to sojourn there ; for the famine was 
'grievous in the land. 

11 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter 
into E'gypt, that he said unto Sa'rai his wife. Behold now, I 
know that thou art "a fair woman to look upon : 

12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the E-gyp'tians 
shall see thee, that they shall say. This is his wife: and 
they "will kill me, but they will save thee alive. 

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



20 And Re'u lived two and thirty years, and 

21 Se'rug : and Re'u lived after he begat Se'rug two 
hundred and seven years, and begat sons and 
daughters. 

22 And Se'rug lived thirty years, and begat Na'hor : 

23 and Se'rug lived after he begat Na'hor two hundred 
years, and begat sons and daughters. 

24 And Na'hor lived nine and twenty years, and 

25 begat Te'rah : and Na'hor lived after he begat Te'rah 
an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and 
daughters. 

26 And Te'rah lived seventy years, and begat A'bram, 
Na'hor, and Ha'ran. 

27 Now these are the generations of Te'rah. Te'rah 
begat A'bram, Na'hor, and Ha'ran ; and Ha'ran begat 

28 Lot. And Ha'ran died in the presence of his father 
• Te'rah in the laud of his nativity, in Ur of the Chal'- 
29 dees. And A'bram and Na'hor took them wives: 

the name of A'bram's wife was Sa'rai ; and the name 
of Na'hor's wife, Mil'cah, the daughter of Ha'ran, the 

30 father of Mil'cah, and the father of Is'cah. And 

31 Sa'rai was barren ; she had no child. And Te'rah 
took A'bram his son, and Lot the son of Ha'ran, his 
son's son, and Sa'rai his daughter in law, his son 
A'bram's wife ; and they went forth with them from 
Ur of the Chal'dees, to go into the land of Ca'naan ; 

32 and they came unto Ha'ran, and dwelt there. And 
the days of Te'rah were two hundred and five years : 
and Te'rah died in Ha'ran. 

4-^ Now the Lord said unto A'bram, Get thee out of 
thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy 
father's house, unto the land that I will shew thee 

2 and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will 
bless thee, and make thy name great ; and be thou 

3 a blessing : and I will bless them that bless thee, 
and him that curseth thee will I curse ; and in thee 

4 shall all the families of the earth • be blessed. So 
A'bram went, as the Lord had spoken unto him ; 
and Lot went with him : and A'bram was seventy 
and five years old when he departed out of Ha'ran. 

6 And A'bram took Sa'rai his wife, and Lot his brother's 
son, and all their substance that they had gathered, 
and the souls that they had gotten in Ha'ran ; and 
they went forth to go into the land of Ca'naan ; and 

6 into the land of Ca'naan they came. And A'bram 
passed through the land unto the place of She'chem, 
unto the 'oak of Mo'reh. And the Ca'naan-ite was 

7 then in the land. And the Lord appeared unto 
A'bram, and said. Unto thy seed will I give this 
land ; and there builded he an altar unto the Lord, 

8 who appeared unto him. And he removed from 
thence unto the mountain on the east of Beth-el, and 
pitched his tent, having Beth-el on the west, and A'i 
on the east : and there he builded an altar unto tlie 

9 Lord, and called upon the name of the Lord. And 
A'bram journeyed, going on still toward the ^South 

] And there was a famine in the land : and A'bram 
went down into E'gypt to sojourn there; for the 

1 1 famine was sore in the land. And it came to pass, 
when he was come near to enter into E'gypt, that he 
said unto Sa'rai his wife. Behold now, I know that 

12 thou art a fair woman to look upon : and it shall 
come to pass, when the E-gyp'tians shall see thee, 
that they shall say, This is his wife : and they will 

13 kill me, but they will save thee alive. Say, I pray thee, 
thou art my sister : that it may be well with me for 
thy sake, and that my soul may live because of thee.

14 ^And it came to pass, that, when A'bram was come into 
E'gypt, the E-gyp'tians "beheld the woman that she was 
very fair. 

15 The princes also of Pha'raoh saw her, and commended 
her before Pha'raoh : and the woman was 'taken into 
Pha'raoh's house. 

16 And he "entreated A'bram well for her sake : and he 
had sheep, and oxen, and he-asses, and menservants, and 
maidservants, and she-asses, and camels. 

17 And the Lord ''plagued Pha'raoh and his house with 
great plagues, because of Sa'rai, A'bram's Avife. 

18 And Pha'raoh called A'bram, and said, '^What is this 
that thou hast done unto me ? why didst thou not tell me 
that she was thy wife? 

19 Why saidst thou. She is my sister? so I might have 
taken her to me to wife : now therefore behold thy wife, 
take her, and go thy way. 

20 ''And Pha'raoh commanded his men concerning him : 
and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had. 

CHAPTER XIII. 

Abram and Lot return out of Egypt — God reneweth the promise to Abram. 

AND A'bram went up out of E'gypt, he, and his wife, and 
all that he had, and Lot with him, "into the south. 

2 ''And A'bram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. 

3 And he went on his journeys "from the south even to 
Beth-el, unto the place where his tent had been at the be- 
ginning, between Beth-el and Ha'i ; 

4 Unto the ''place of the altar, which he had made there 
at the first : and there A'bram 'called on the name of the Lord. 

5 ^And Lot also, which went with A'bram, had flocks, 
and herds, and tents. 

6 And Ahe land was not able to bear them, that they 
might dwell together : for their substance was great, so that 
they could not dwell together. 

7 And there was 'a strife between the herdmen of A'bram's 
cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle : 'and the Ca'naan-ite 
and the Per'iz-zite dwelt then in the land. 

8 And A'bram said unto Lot, 'Let there be no strife, I 
pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen 
and thy herdmen ; for we he fbrethren. 

9 *Js not the whole land before thee ? Separate thyself, I 
pray thee, from me : 'if thou wilt take the left hand, then I 
will go to the right ; or if thou depart to the right hand, 
then I will go to the left. 

10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all ""the plain of 
Jor'dan, that it was well watered every where, before the 
Lord "destroyed Sod'om and Go-mor'rah, "even as the garden 
of the Lord, like the land of E'gypt, as thou comest unto "Zo'ar. 

11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jor'dan ; and Lot 
journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one 
from the other. 

12 A'bram dwelt in the land of Ca'naan, and Lot "dwelt 
in the cities of the plain, and ''pitched his tent toward Sod'om. 

13 But the men of Sod'om 'were wicked, and 'sinners be- 
fore the Lord exceedingly. 

14 "lyAnd the Lord said unto A'bram, 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 : 

15 For all the land which thou seest, *to thee will I give 
it, and "to thy seed for ever. 

16 And '1 will make thy seed as the dust of the earth : so 
that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall 
thy seed also be numbered. 

17 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and 
in the breadth of it ; for I will give it unto thee. 

18 Then A'bram removed his tent, and came and "dwelt in 
the tplain of Mam're, Svhich is in He'bron, and built there 
an altar unto the Lord. 



14 And it came to pass, that, when A'bram was come 
into E'gypt, the E-gyp'tians beheld the woman 

15 that she was very fair. And the princes of Pha 
raoh saw her, and praised her to Pha'raoh: and 

16 the woman was taken into Pha'raoh's house. And 
he entreated A'bram well for her sake : and he had 
sheep, and oxen, and he-asses, and menservants, and 

17 maidservants, and she-asses, and camels. And the 
Lord plagued Pha'raoh and his house with great 

18 plagues because of Sa'rai A'bram's wife. And Pha 
raoh called A'bram, and said. What is this that thou 
hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that 

19 she was thy wife? Why saidst thou. She is my 
sister? so that I took her to be my wife': now there- 
fore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way 

20 And Pha'raoh gave men charge concerning him : and 
they brought him on the way, and his wife, and all 
that he had. 

+^ And A'bram went up out of E'gypt, he, and his 
wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the 

2 South. And A'bram was very rich in cattle 

3 silver, and in gold. And he went on his journeys 
from the South even to Beth-el, unto the place where 
his tent had been at the beginning, between Beth-el 

4 and A'i; unto the place of the altar, which he had 
made there at the first: and there A'bram called on 

5 the name of the Lord. And Lot also, which went 

6 with A'bram, had flocks, and herds, and tents. And 
the laud was not able to bear them, that they might 
dwell together: for their substauce was great, so that 

7they could not dwell together. And there was a 
strife between the herdmen of A'bram's cattle and the 
herdmen of Lot's cattle : and the Ca'naan-ite and the 

8 Per'iz-zite dwelled then in the land. And A'bram said 
unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between 
me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy 

9 herdmen ; for we are brethren. Is not the whole 
land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from 
me : if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to 
the right ; or if thou take the right hand, then I will 

10 go to the left. And Lot lifted up his eyes, and 
beheld all the 'Plain of Jor'dan, that it was well 
watered every where, before the Lord destroyed 
Sod'om and Go-mor'rah, like the garden of the Lord, 
like the land of E'gypt, as thou goest unto Zo'ar, 

11 So Lot cho.se him all the Plain of Jor'dan ; and Lot 
journeyed east: and they separated themselves the 

12 one from the other. A'bram dwelled in the land of 
Ca'naan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the Plain, 

13 and moved his tent as far as Sod'om. Now the men 
of Sod'om were wicked and sinners against the Lord 

14 exceedingly. And the Lord said unto A'bram, after 
that Lot was separated from him. Lift up now thine 
eyes, and look from the place where thou art, north- 
ward and southward and eastward and we-stward: 

15 for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give 

16 it, and to thy seed for ever. And I will make thy 
seed as the dust of the earth : so that if a man can 
number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed

CHAPTER XIV. 

Baiite of the kingi — Lot is taken prisoner — Melchizedek bUsseih Abram, 

AND it came to pass in the days of Am'ra-phel king "of 
Shi'nar, A'ri-och king of El'la-sar, Ched-or-la'o-mer 
king of 'E'lam, and Ti'dal king of nations ; 

2 That these made war with Be'ra king of Sod'om, and with 
Bir'sha king of Go-mor'rah,Shi'nab king of '^Ad'mah,and Shem'- 
e-ber king of Ze-bo'i-im, and the king of Be'la, which is ''Zo'ar. 

3 All these were joined together in the vale of Sid'dim, 
'which is the salt sea. 

4 Twelve years -^they served Ched-or-la'o-mer, and in the 
thirteenth year they rebelled. , 

6 And in the fourteenth year came Ched-or-la'o-mer, and 
the kings that were with him, and smote "the Reph'a-im ''in 
Ash'te-roth Kar'na-im, and 'the Zu'zim in Ham, *and the 
E'mim in IJSha'veh Kir-i-a-tha'im, 

6 'And the Ho'rites in their mount Se'ir, unto || El-pa'ran, 
which is by the wilderness. 

7 And they returned, and came to En-mish'pat, which is 
Ka'desh, and smote all the country of the Am'a-lek-ites, and 
also the Am'o-rites, that dwelt ""in Haz'e-zon-ta'mar. 

8 And there went out the king of Sod'om, and the king of 
Go-mor'rah, and the king of Ad'mah, and the king of Ze-bo'i- 
im, and the king of Be'la, (the same is Zo'ar ;) and they joined 
battle with them in the vale of Sid'dim ; 

9 With Ched-or-la'o-mer the king of E'lam, and with Ti'dal 
king of nations, and Am'ra-phel king of Shi'nar, and A'ri-och 
king of El'la-sar ; four kings with five. 

10 And the vale of Sid'dim was full q/" "slime pits; and the 
kings of Sod'om and , Go-mor'rah fled, and fell there ; and 
they that remained fled °to the mountain. 

1 1 And they took "all the goods of Sod'om and Go-n»r'rah, 
and all their victuals, and went their way. 

12 And they took Lot, A'bram's 'brother's son, 'who dwelt 
in Sod'om, and his goods, and departed. 

13 ^And there came one that had escaped, and told A'bram 
the He'brew ; for 'he dwelt in the plain of Mam're the Am'o- 
rite, brother of Esh'col, and brother of A'ner : 'and these were 
confederate with A'bram. 

14 And when A'bram heard that "his brother was taken cap- 
tive, he II armed his || trained servants, "born in his own house, 
three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them ^unto Dan. 

15 And he divided himself against them, he and his serv- 
ants, by night, and "smote them, and pursued them unto 
Ho'bah, which is on the left hand of Da-mas'cus. 

16 And he brought back 'all the goods, and also brought 
again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, 
and the people. 

17 TJAnd the king of Sod'om "went out to meet him, ''(after 
his return from the slaughter of Ched-or-la'o-mer, and of the 
kings that were with him,) at the valley of Sha'veh, which is 
the ""king's dale. 

18 And ''Mel-chiz'e-dek king of Sa'lem brought forth bread 
and wine: and he was 'the priest of-'^the most high God. 

19 And he blessed him, and said. Blessed be A'bram of 
the most high God, "possessor of heaven and earth : 

20 And '"blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered 
thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes 'of all. 

21 And the king of Sod'om said unto A'bram, Give me the 
tpersons, and take the goods to thyself. 

22 And A'bram said to the king of Sod'om, I *have lifted 
up mine hand unto the Lord, the most high God, 'the pos- 
sessor of heaven and earth, 

23 That "I will not take from a thread even to a shoe- 
latchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest 
thou shouldest say, I have made A'bram rich : 

24 Save only that which the young men have eaten, and 
the portion of the men "which went with me, A'ner, Esh'col, 
and Mam're ; let them take their portion. 



\-^ And it came to pass in the days of Am'ra-phel 
king of Shi'nar, A'ri-och king of El'la-sar, Ched-or- 
la'o-mer king of E'lam, and Ti'dal king of 'Go'i-im, 

2 that they made war with Be'ra king of Sod'om, and 
with Bir'sha king of Go-mor'rah, Shi'nab king of 
Ad'mah, and Shem'e-ber king of Ze-bo'i-im, and the 

3 king of Be'la (the same is Zo'ar). All these ^joined 
together in the vale of Sid'dim (the same is the Salt 

4 Sea). Twelve years they served Ched-or-la'o-mer, 

5 and in the thirteenth year they rebelled. And in 
the fourteenth year came Ched-or-la'o-mer, and the 
kings that were with him, and smote the Eeph'a-im 
in Ash'te-roth-kar'na-im, and the Zu'zim in Ham, and 

6 the E'mim in 'Sha'veh-kir-i-a-tha'im, and the Ho'rites 
in their mount Se'ir, unto El-pa'ran, which is by the 

7 wilderness. And they returned, and came to En- 
mish'pat (the same is Ka'desh), and smote all the 
^country of the Am'a-lek-ites, and also the Am'o-rites, 

8 that dwelt in Haz'a-zon-ta'mar. And there went out 
the king of Sod'om, and the king of Go-mor'rah, and 
the king of Ad'mah, and the king of Ze-bo'i-im, and 
the king of Be'la (the same is Zo'ar) ; and th^y set 
the battle in array against them in the vale of Sid'- 

9 dim ; against Ched-or-la'o-mer king of E'lam, and 
Ti'dal king of Go'i-im, and Am'ra-phel king of Shi'- 
nar, and A'ri-och king of El'la-sar ; four kings against 

10 the five. Now the vale of Sid'dim was full ol '^slime 
pits ; and the kings of Sod'om and Go-mor'rah fled, 
and they fell there, and they that remained fled to 

11 the mountain. And they took all the goods of 
Sod'om and Go-mor'rah, and all their victuals, and 

12 went their way. And they took Lot, A'bram's 
brother's son, who dwelt in Sod'om, and his goods, 

13 and departed. And there came one that had 
escaped, and told A'bram the He'brew : now he 
dwelt by the ^oaks of Mam're the Am'o-rite, brother 
of Esh'col, and brother of A'ner ; and these were 

14 confederate with A'bram. And when A'bram heard 
that his brother was taken captive, he led forth his 
trained men, born in his house, three hundred and 

15 eighteen, and pursued as far as Dan. And he 
divided himself against them by night, he and his 
servants, and smote them, and pursued them unto 
Ho'bah, which is on the Heft hand of Da-mas'cus. 

16 And he brought back all the goods, and also 
brought again his brother Lot, and his goodis, and 

17 the women also, and the people. And the king of 
Sod'om went out to meet him, after his return from 
the slaughter of Ched-or-la'o-mer and the kings that 
were with him, at the vale of Sha'veh (the .same is 

18the King's Vale). And Mel-chiz'e-dek kingof Sa'lem 
brought forth bread and wine : and he was priest 

19 of *God Most High. And he blessed him, and 
said. Blessed be A'oram of *God Most High, 'pos- 

20 sessor of heaven and earth : and blessed be *God 
Most High, which hath delivered thine enemies 
into thy hand. And he gave him a tenth of all. 

21 And the king of Sod'om said unto A'bram, Give me 

22 the persons, and take the goods to thyself And 
A'bram said to the king of Sod'om, I have lift up 
mine hand unto the Lord, *God Most High, 'pos- 

23 sessor of heaven and earth, that I will not take a 
thread nor a shoelatchet nor aught that is thine, 
lest thou shouldest say, I have made A'bram rich :

CHAPTER XV. 

A^ram justified by faith— Canaan promised, and confirmed by a vision. 

AFTER these things the word of the Lord came unto 
A'bram "in a vision, saying, ""Fear not, A'bram : I am 
thy "^shield, and thy exceeding ''great reward. 

2 And A'bram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, 
'seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this 
E'li-e'zer of Da-mas'cus ? 

3 And A'bram said. Behold, to me thou hast given no 
seed: and, lo, ■'^one born in my house is mine heir. 

4 And behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, say- 
ing, This shall not be thine heir ; but he that "shall come 
forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. 

5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said. Look now 
toward heaven, and *tell the 'stars, if thou be able to num- 
ber them : and he said unto him, *So shall thy seed be. 

6 And he 'believed in the Lord; and he "'counted it to 
him for righteousness. 

7 And he said unto him, I am the Lord that "brought thee 
out of "Ur of the Chal'dees, "to give thee this land to inherit it. 

8 And he said. Lord God, "whereby shall I know that I 
shall inherit if? 

9 And he said unto him. Take me a heifer of three years 
old, and a she-goat of three years old, and a ram of three 
years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon. 

10 And he took unto him all the.se, and ''divided them in 
the midst, and laid each piece one against another : but "the 
birds divided he not. ^ 

11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcasses, 
A'bram drove them away. 

12 And when the sun was going down, 'a deep sleep fell 
upon A'bram ; and, lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him. 

13 And he said unto A'bram, 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 four hundred years ; 

14 And also that nation,whom they .shall serve, ""will I judge : 
and afterward "shall they come out with great substance. 

15 And 'thou shalt go "to thy fathers in peace; Hhou shalt 
be buried in a good old age. 

16 But "in the fourth generation they shall come hither 
again : for the iniquity ''of the Am'o-rites Hs not yet full. 

17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, 
and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace^ and fa burning 
lamp that -^passed between those pieces. 

18 In that same day the Lord "made a covenant with A'bram, 
saying, ''Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river 
of E'gypt unto the great river, the river Eu-phra'tes : 

19 The Ken'ites, and the Ken'iz-zites, and the Kad'mon-ites, 

20 And the Hit'tites,aud the Per'iz-zites, andtheReph'a-im, 

21 And the Am'o-rites, and the Ca'naan-ites, and the Gir'ga- 
shites, and the Jeb'u-sites. 

CHAPTER XVI. 

Sarai being barren giveih Hagar to Abram — Ishmael is born. 

NOW Sa'rai, A'bram's wife, "bare him no children : and she 
had a handmaid, an ""E-gyp'tian, whose name was "Ha' gar. 

2 ''And Sa'rai said unto A'bram, Behold now, the Lord 
•■hath restrained me from bearing : I pray ■'^thee, go in unto 
my maid; it may be that I may fobtain children by her. 
And A'bram "hearkened to the voice of Sa'rai. 

3 And Sa'rai, A'bram's wife, took Ha'gar her maid the 
E-gyp'tian, after A'bram ''had dwelt ten years in the land of 
Ca'naan, and gave her to her husband A'bram to be his wife. 

4 ^And he went in unto Ha'gar, and she conceived : and 
when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was' de- 
spised in her eyes. 

5 And Sa'rai said unto A'bram, My wrong 6e upon thee: I 
have given my maid into thy bosom ; and when she saw that 
she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: *the Lord 
Ijudge between me and thee. 



4-0 After these things the word of the Lord came 
unto A'bram in a vision, saying. Fear not, A'bram : 
I am thy shield, 'and thy exceeding great reward. 

2 And A'bram said, O Lord ^GoD, what wilt thou 
give me, seeing I 'go childless, and he that shall 
be possessor of my house is ^Dam'me-sek E'li-e'zer ? 

3 And A'bram said. Behold, to me thou hast given no 
seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. 

4 And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, 
saying. This man shall not be thine heir; but he 
that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall 

5 be thine heir. And he brought him forth abroad, 
and said. Look now toward heaven, and tell the 
stars, if thou be able to tell them : and he said unto 

6 him. So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the 
Lord ; and he counted it to him for righteousness. 

7 And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought 
thee out of Ur of the Chal'dees, to give thee this 

8 land to inherit it. And he said, O Lord GoD, 
9 whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it? And 

he said unto him. Take me an heifer of three years 
old, and a she-goat of three years old, and a ram of 
three years old, and a turtledove, and a young 

10 pigeon. And he took him all these, and divided 
them in the midst, and laid each half over against 

lithe other: but the birds divided he not. And the 
birds of prey came down upon the carcases, and 

12 A'bram drove them away. And when the sun was 
going down, a deep sleep fell upon A'bram ; and, lo 

13 an horror of great darkness fell upon him. And he 
said unto A'bram, 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 four 

14 hundred years; and also that nation, whom they 
shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they 

15 come out with great substance. But thou shalt go 
to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a 

16 good old age. And in the fourth generation they 
shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the 

17 Am'o-rite is not yet full. And it came to pass, that, 
when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a 
smoking furnace, and a flaming torch that passed 

18 between these pieces. In that day the Lord made 
a covenant with A'bram, saying. Unto thy seed have 
I given this land, from the river of E'gypt unto the 

19 great river, the river Eu-phra'tes : the Ken'ite, and 

20 the Ken'iz-zite, and the Kad'mon-ite, and the Hit'tite, 

21 and the Per'iz-zite, and the Reph'a-im, and the Am'o- 
rite, and the Ca'naan-ite, and the Gir'ga-shite, and the 
Jeb'u-site. 

iO Now Sa'rai A'bram's wife bare him no children : 
and she had an handmaid, an E-gyp'tian, whose name 

2 was Ha'gar. And Sa'rai said unto A'bram, Behold 
now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing ; go 
in, I pray thee, unto my handmaid ; it may be that 
I shall ^obtain children by her. And A'bram heark- 

3 ened to the voice of Sa'rai. And Sa'rai A'bram's wife 
took Ha'gar the Egyptian, her handmaid, after A'bram 
had dwelt ten years in the land of Ca'naan, and gave 

4 her to A'bram her husband to be his wife. And he 
went in unto Ha'gar, and she conceived : and when she 
saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised 

5 in her eyes. And Sa'rai said unto A'bram, My wrong 
be upon thee : I gave my handmaid into thy bosom ; 
and when she saw that she had conceived, I was de- 
spised in her eyes: the Lord judge between me 
and thee.

6 *But A'bram said unto Sa'rai, "Behold, thy maid is in thy 
hand; do to her fas it pleaseth thee. And when Sa'rai 
fdealt hardly with her, "she fled from her face. 

7 ^And the angel of the Loed found her by a fountain of 
water in the wilderness, "by the fountain in the way to ""Shur. 

8 And he said, Ha'gar, Sa'rai's maid, whence camest thou ? 
and whither wilt thou go ? And she said, I flee from the 
face of my mistress Sa'rai. 

9 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Return to thy 
mistress, and 'submit thyself under her hands. 

10 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, 'I will multi- 
ply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for 
multitude. 

11 And the angel of the Lord said unto her. Behold, thou 
art with child, and shalt bear a son, 'and shalt call his name 
||Ish'm.a-el; because the Lord hath heard thy aflliction. 

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

13 And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto 
her. Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here 
looked after him ^that seeth me? 

14 Wherefore the well was called "H Be'er-la-hai'-roi ; behold, 
it is "between Ka'desh and Be'red. 

15 ^And "Ha'gar bare A'bram a son : and A'bram called 
his son's name, which Ha'gar bare, ''Ish'ma-el. 

16 And A'bram was fourscore and six years old, when 
Ha'gar bare Ish'ma-el to A'bram. 

CHAPTER XVII. 

God reneweth his covenant — Circumcision instituted — Isaac is promised. 

AND when A'bram was ninety years old and nine, the 
Lord "appeared to A'bram, and said unto him, ''I am the 
Almighty God; "walk before me, and be thou || ''perfect. 

2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, 
and 'will multiply thee exceedingly. 

3 And A'bram -^fell on his face : and God talked with him, 
saying, 

4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou 
shalt be "a father of fmany nations. 

5 Neither shall thy name any more be called A'bram, but 
''thy name shall be || A'bra-ham ; 'for a father of many nations 
have I made thee. 

6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make 
^nations of thee, and 'kings shall come out of thee. 

7 And I will ""establish my covenant between me and thee 
and thy seed after thee in their generations, for an everlasting 
covenant : "to be a God unto thee, and to "thy seed after thee. 

8 And "I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, 
the land f'wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Ca'- 
naan, for an everlasting possession ; and 'I will be their God. 

9 ^And God said unto A'bra-ham, Thou shalt keep my 
covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their 
generations. 

10 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. 

11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin ; and 
it shall be 'a token of the covenant betwixt me and you. 

12 And fhe that is eight days old "shall be circumcised 
among you, every man child in your generation.s, he that is 
born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, 
which is not of thy seed. 

13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought 
with thy money, must needs be circumcised : and my cov- 
enant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. 

14 And the uncircumci.sed man child whose flesh of his 
foreskin is not circumcised, that soul "".shall be cut off" from 
his people; he hath broken my covenant. 



6 But A'bram said unto Sa'rai, Behold thy maid is in 
thy hand ; do to her that which is good in thine eyes. 
And Sa'rai dealt hardly with her, and she fled from 

7 her face. And the angel of the Lord found her by a 
fountain of water in the wilderness, by tjie fountain in 

8 the way to Shur. And he said, Ha'gar, Sa'rai's hand- 
maid, whence camest thou ? and whither goest thou ? 
And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sa'rai. 

9 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Eeturn to 
thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands. 

10 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, I will 
greatly multiply thy seed, that it shall not be num- 

llbered for multitude. And the angel of the Lord 
said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt 
bear a son ; and thou shalt call his name 'Ish'ma-el, 

12 because the Lord hath heard thy affliction. And 
he shall be as a wild-ass among men ; his hand shall 
be against every man, and every man's hand against 
him ; and he shall dwell 'in the presence of all his 

13 brethren. And she called the name of the Lord 
that spake unto her, 'Thou art ^a God that seeth : for 
she said, Have I even here looked after him that 

14 seeth me? Wherefore the well was called 'Be'er- 
la-hai'-roi ; behold, it is between Ka'desh and Be'red. 

15 And Ha'gar bare A'bram a son : and A'bram called 
the name of his son, which Ha'gar bare, Ish'ma-el. 

16 And A'bram was fourscore and six years old, when 
Ha'gar bare Ish'ma-el to A'bram. 

** And when A'bram was ninety years old and nine, 
the Lord appeared to A'bram, and said unto him, I 
am *God Almighty ; walk before me, and be thou 

2 perfect. And I will make my covenant between me 

3 and thee, and will multijjly thee exceedingly. And 
A'bram fell on his face : and God talked with him 

4 saying. As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, 
and thou shalt be the father of a multitude of nations. 

5 Neither shall thy name any more be called A'bram, 
but thy name shall be A'bra-ham ; for the father of a 

6 multitude of nations have I made thee. And I will 
make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations 

7 of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I 
will establish my covenant between rae and thee and 
thy seed after thee throughout their generations for 
an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee and 

8 to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, 
and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojourn- 
ings, all the land of Ca'naan, for an everlasting pos- 

9 session ; and I will be their God. And God said 
unto A'bra-ham, And as for thee, thou shalt keep my 
covenant, thou, and thy seed after thee throughout 

10 their generations. This is my covenant, which ye 
shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after 
thee; every male among you shall be circumcised. 

11 And ye shall be circumcised in the flesh of your 
foreskin ; and it shall be a token of a covenant be 

12twixt me and you. And he that is eight days old 
shall be circumcised among you, every male through- 
out your generations, he that is born in the house, 
or bought with money of any stranger, which is not 

13 of thy seed. He that is born in thy house, and he 
that is bought with thy money, must needs be cir- 
cumcised : and my covenant shall be in your flesh 

14 for an everlasting covenant. And the uncircumcised 
male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his fore- 
skin, that soul shall be cut off" from his people ; he 
hath broken my covenant.

15 ^And God said unto A'bra-ham, As for Sa'rai thy wife, 
thou shalt not call her name Sa'rai, but ||Sa'rah shall her 
name be. 

16 And I will bless her, ^and give thee a son also of her: 
yea, I will bless her, and f she shall be a mother "of nations ; 
kings of people shall be of her. 

17 Then A'bra-ham fell upon his face, 'and laughed, and 
said in his heart. Shall a child be born unto him that is a 
hundred years old ? and shall Sa'rah, that is ninety years 
old, bear? 

18 And A'bra-ham said unto God, O that Ish'ma-el might 
live before thee ! 

19 And God said, "Sa'rah thy wife shall bear thee a son 
indeed ; and thou shalt call his name I'saac : and I will es- 
tablish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, 
and with his seed after him. 

20 And as for Ish'ma-el, I have heard thee : Behold, I have 
blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and 'will multiply 
him exceedingly ; "twelve princes shall he beget, ''and I 
will make him a great nation. 

21 But my covenant will I establish with I'saac, 'which 
Sa'rah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year. 

22 And he left off talking with him, and God went up from 
A'bra-ham. 

23 ^And A'bra-ham took Ish'ma-el his son, and all that 
were born in his house, and all that were bought with his 
money, every male among the men of A'bra-ham's house ; 
and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame 
day, as God had said unto him. 

24 And A'bra-ham was ninety years old and nine, when he 
was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 

25 And Ish'ma-el his son was thirteen years old, when he 
was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 

26 In the self-same day was A'bra-ham circumcised, and 
Ish'ma-ei his son. 

27 And ^all the men of his house, born in the house, and 
bought with money of the stranger, were circumcised with him. 

CHAPTER XVIII. 

The destruction of Sodom is revealed to Abraham. 

AND the Lord appeared unto him in the "plains of 
Mam're : and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day ; 

2 'And he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men 
stood by him : "and when he saw them, he ran to meet them 
from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, 

3 And said, My lord, if now I have found favour in thy 
sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant : 

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

5 And 'I will fetch a morsel of bread, and t^comfort ye your 
hearts ; after that ye shall pass on : "for therefore fare ye come 
to your servant. And they said. So do, as thou hast said. 

6 And A'bra-ham hastened into the tent unto Sa'rah, and 
said, fMake ready quickly three measures of fine meal, 
knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth. 

7 And A'bra-ham ran unto the herd, and fetched a calf 
tender and good, and gave ii unto a young man ; and he 
hasted to dress it. 

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 they did eat. 

9 liAnd they said unto him. Where is Sa'rah thy wife? 
And he said, Behold, 'in the tent. 

10 And he said, I *will certainly return unto thee 'accord- 
ing to the time of life ; and, lo, "Sa'rah thy wife shall have 
a son. And Sa'rah heard it in the tent-door, which was 
behind him. 

11 Now "A'bra-ham and Sa'rah were old and well stricken in 
age ; and it ceased to be with Sa'rah "after the manner of women. 



15 And God said unto A'bra-ham, As for Sa'rai thy 
wife, thou shalt not call her name Sa'rai, but 'Sa'rah 

16 shall her name be. And I will bless her, and more- 
over I will give thee a son of her : yea, I will bless her, 
and she shall be a mother of nations ; kings of peo- 

17 pies shall be of her. Then A'braham fell upon his 
face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child 
be born unto him that is an hundred years old? 

18 and shall Sa'rah, that is ninety years old, bear? And 
A'bra-ham said unto God, Oh that Ish'ma-el might 

19 live before thee! And God said. Nay, but Sa'rah 
thy wife shall bear thee a son ; and thou shalt call 
his name ^I'saac : and I will establish my covenant 
with him for an everlasting covenant for his seed 

20 after him. And as for Ish'ma-el, I have heard thee: 
behold, I have bles.sed him, and will make him fruit- 
ful, and will multiply him exceedingly ; twelve princes 
shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. 

21 But my covenant will I establish -svith I'saac, which 
Sa'rah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next 

22 year. And he left off talking with him, and God went 

23 up from A'bra-ham. And A'bra-ham took Ish'ma-el 
his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that 
were bought with his money, every male among the 
men of A'bra-ham's house, and circumcised the flesh 
of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had 

24 said unto him. And A'bra-ham was ninety years old 
and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his 

25 foreskin. And Ish'ma-el his son was thirteen vears 
old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his 

26 foreskin. In the selfsame day was A'bra-ham circum- 

27 cised, and Ish'ma-el his son. And all the men of his 
house, those born in the house, and those bought with 
money of the stranger, were circumcised with him. 

+0 And the Lord appeared uuto him by the 'oaks of 
Mam're, as he sat in the tent door in the heat of the 

2 day ; and he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, 
three men stood over again.st him : and when he saw 
them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and 

3 bo wed himself to the earth, and said, *My lord, if 
now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, 

4 1 pray thee, from thy servant : let now a little water 
be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves 

5 under the tree : and I will fetch a morsel of bread, 
and comfort ye your heart ; after that ye shall pass 
on : 'forasmuch as ye are come to your servant. 

6 And they said. So do, as thou hast said. And A'bra- 
ham hastened into the tent unto Sa'rah, and said. 
Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, 

7 knead it, and make cakes. And A'bra-ham ran unto 
the herd, and fetched a calf tender and good, and 
gave it unto the servant; and he hasted to dress 

8 it. And he took butter, and milk, and the calf 
which he had dressed, and set it before them; 
and he stood by them under the tree, and they 

9 did eat. And they said unto him. Where is Sa'rah 
lOthy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. And 

he said, I will certainly return unto thee when 
the season "cometh round ; and, lo, Sa'rah thy 
wife shall have a son. And Sa'rah heard in the 
1 1 tent door, which was behind him. Now A'bra-ham 
and Sa'rah were old, and well stricken in age ; it had 
ceased to be with Sa'rah after the manner of women.

12 Therefore Sa'rah "laughed within herself, saying, 'After I 
am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my 'lord being old also ? 

13 And the Loed said unto A'bra-ham,Wherefore did Sa'rah 
laugh, saying. Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old ? 

14 'Is any thing too hard for the Lord? 'At the time 
appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of 
life, and Sa'rah shall have a son. 

15 Then Sa'rah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was 
afraid. And he said, Nay ; but thou didst laugh. 

1 6 ^ And the men rose up from thence,and looked toward Sod'- 
om : and A'bra-ham went with them "to bring them on the way. 

17 And the Lord said, "Shall I hide from A'bra-ham that 
thing which I do ; 

18 Seeing that A'bra-ham shall surely become a great and 
mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be 
""blessed in him? 

19 For I know him, "that he will command his children 
and his household after him, and they shall keep the way 
of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord 
may bring upon A'bra-ham that which he hath spoken of him. 

20 And the Lord said, Because 'the cry of Sod'om and 
Go-mor'rah is great, and because their sin is very grievous, 

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

22 And the men turned their faces from thence, "and went 
toward Sod'om : but A'bra-ham ''stood yet before the Lord. 

23 ^And A'bra-ham "drew near, and said, •'^Wilt thou also 
destroy the righteous with the wicked? 

24 'Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city : 
wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty 
righteous that are therein? 

25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay 
the righteous with the wicked; and *that the righteous 
should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: 'Shall not 
the Judge of all the earth do right? 

26 And the Lord said, *If I find in Sod'om fifty righteous 
within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes. 

27 And A'bra-ham answered and said, 'Behold now, I have 
taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am '"but 
dust and ashes : 

28 Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous : 
wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five ? And he said, 
If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it. 

29 And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradven- 
ture there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will 
not do it for forty's sake. 

30 And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, 
and I will speak : Peradventure there shall thirty be found 
there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there. 

31 And he said. Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak 
unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found 
there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake. 

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

33 And the Lord went his way, as soon as he had left 
communing with A'bra-ham : and A'bra-ham returned unto 
his place. 

CHAPTER XIX. 

Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed — Loi's wife made a piHar of salt. 

AND there "came two angels to Sod'om at even ; and Lot 
sat in the gate of Sod'om: and *Lot seeing them rose 
up to meet them ; and he bowed himself with his face 
toward the ground; 

2 And he said. Behold now, my lords, "turn in, I pray 
you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and ''wash 
your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. 
And they said, 'Nay ; but we will abide in the street all night. 



12 And Sa'rah laughed within herself, saying. After 
I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord 

13 being old also? And the Lord said unto A'bra- 
ham, Wherefore did Sa'rah laugh, saying, Shall 

141 of a surety bear a child, which am old? Is 
any thing too 'hard for the Lord? At the set 
time I will return unto thee, when the season 

15 ^Cometh round, and Sa'rah shall have a son. Then 
Sa'rah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was 
afraid. And he said. Nay ; but thou didst laugh. 

16 And the men rose up from thence, and looked 
toward Sod'om : and A'bra-ham went with them to 

17 bring them on the way. And the Lord said, Shall 
181 hide from A'bra-ham that which I do; seeing that 

A'bra-ham shall surely become a great and mighty 
nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be 

19 blessed in him? For I have 'known him, to the end 
that he may command his children and his house- 
hold after him, that they may keep the way of the 
Lord, to do justice and judgement; to the end that 
the Lord may bring upon A'bra-ham that which he 

20 hath spoken of him. And the Lord said, ^Because 
the cry of Sod'om and Go-mor'rah is great, and 

21*because their sin is very grievous; I will go down 
now, and see whether they have done altogether 
according to the cry of it, which is come unto me ; 

22 and if not, I will know. And the men turned from 
thence, and went toward Sod'om: but A'bra-ham 

23 stood yet before the Lord. And A'bra-ham drew 
near, and said. Wilt thou consume the righteous with 

24 the wicked? Peradventure there be fifty righteous 
within the city : wilt thou consume and not spare 
the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? 

25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to 
slay the righteous with the wicked, that so the 
righteous should be as the wicked ; that be far from 
thee : shall not the Judge of all the earth do right ? 

26 And the Lord said, If I find in Sod'om fifty righteous 
within the city, then I will spare all the place for 

27 their sake. And A'bra-ham answered and said, Be- 
hold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the 

28 Lord, which am but dust and ashes : peradventure 
there shall lack five of the fifty righteous : wilt thou 
destroy all the city for lack of five ? And he said, I 
will not destroy it, if I find there forty and five 

29 And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Perad- 
venture there shall be forty found there. And he 

30 said, I will not do it for the forty's sake. And he 
said. Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak : 

Eerad venture there shall thirty be found there. And 
e said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there. And 
he said. Behold now, I have taken upon me to 
speak unto the Lord: peradventure there shall be 
twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it 

32 for the twenty's sake. And he said. Oh let not the 
Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once : 
peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, 

33 1 will not destroy it for the ten's sake. And the Lord 
went his way, as soon as he had left communing with 
A'bra-ham : and A'bra-ham returned unto his place

Lot sat in the gate of Sod'om : and Lot saw them, 
and rose up to meet . them ; and he bowed himself

my lords, turn aside, I pray you, into your servant's 
house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye

said. Nay ; but we will abide in the street all night.

3 And he pressed upon them greatly \ and they turned in 
unto him, and entered into his house ; ■'^and he made them 
a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat. 

4 ^But before they lay down, the men of the city, e»en 
the men of Sod'om, compassed the house round, both old 
and young, all the people from every quarter : 

5 'And they called unto Lot, and said unto him. Where 
are the men which came in to thee this night ? ''bring them 
out unto us, that we 'may know them. 

6 And *Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the 
door after him. 

7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. 

8 'Behold now, I have two 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 ; "for therefore came they under the shadow 
of my roof. 

9 And they said. Stand back. And they said again, This 
one fellow "came in to sojourn, "and he will needs be a judge : 
now will we deal worse with thee than with them. And 
they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near 
to break the door. 

10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into 
the house to them, and shut to the door. 

11 And they smote the men "that were at the door of the 
house with blindness, both small and great: so that they 
wearied themselves to find the door. 

12 ^And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any 
besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and 
whatsoever thou hast in the city, 'bring them out of this place : 

13 For 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. 

14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, 
'which married his daughters, and said, "Up, get you out of 
this place ; for the Loed will destroy this city. ''But he 
seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law. 

1 5 5[And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened 
Lot, sayingj^Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which 
fare here; lest thou be consumed in the || iniquity of the city. 

16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, 
and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two 
daughters; "the Lord being merciful unto him: 'and they 
brought him forth, and set him without the city. 

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

18 And Lot said unto them. Oh, 'not so, my Lord: 

19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, 
and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed 
unto me in saving my life; and I can not escape to the 
mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die : 

20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a 
little one: O, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) 
and my soul shall live. 

21 And he said unto him. See, ^I have accepted fthee 
concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this 
city, for the which thou hast spoken. 

22 Haste thee, escajie thither ; for "I can not do any thing 
till thou be come thither. Therefore 'the name of the city 
was called 1 1 Zo'ar. 

23 ^The sun was frisen upon the earth when Lot entered 
into Zo'ar. 

24 Then 'the Lord rained upon Sod'om and upon Go-mor'- 
rah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven ; 

25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and 
all the inhabitants of the cities, and 'that which grew upon 
the ground. 



3 And he urged them greatly; and they turned 
in unto him, and entered into his house; and 
he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened 

4 bread, and they did eat. But before they lay down, 
the men of the city, even the men of Sod'om, com- 
passed the house round, both young and old, all the 

5 people from every quarter; and they called unto 
Lot, and said unto him. Where are the men which 
came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, 

6 that we may know them. And Lot went out unto 

7 them to the door, and shut the door after him. And 
he said, I pray you, my brethren, do not so wick- 

8edly. Behold now, I have two 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 ; 
'forasmuch as they are come under the shadow of 

9 my roof And they said. Stand back. And they 
said. This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will 
needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with 
thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon 
the man, even Lot, and drew near to break the door. 

10 But the men put forth their hand, and brought Lot 

11 into the house to them, and shut to the door. And 
they smote the men that were at the door of the 
house with blindness, both small and great: so that 

12 they wearied themselves to find the door. And the 
men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? 
son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and 
whomsoever thou hast in the city; bring them out 

13 of the place: for we will destroy this place, because 
the cry of them is waxen great before the Lord ; 

14 and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it. And Lot 
went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which 
^married his daughters, and said. Up, get you out 
of this place ; for the Lord will destroy the city. 
But he seemed unto his sons in law as one that 

15 mocked. And when the morning arose, then the 
angels hastened Lot, .saying. Arise, take thy wife, 
and thy two daughters which are here ; lest thou 

16 be consumed in the ^iniquity of the city. But he 
lingered; and 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 

17 without the city. And it came to pass, when they had 
brought them forth abroad, that he said. Escape for 
thy life ; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in 
all the ■'Plain ; escape to the mountain, lest thou be 

18 consumed. And Lot said unto them. Oh, not so, 
19 'my lord: behold now, thy servant hath found 

grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy 
mercy, which thou ha.st shewed unto me in saving 
my life; and I can not escape to the mountain, lest 

20''evil overtake me, and I die: behold now, this city 
is near to flee unto, and it is a little one : Oh, let 
me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my 

21 soul shall live. And he said unto him, See, I have 
accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will 
not overthrow the city of which thou hast spoken. 

22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I can not do any 
thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the 

23 name of the city was called ^Zo'ar. The sun 
was risen upon the earth when Lot came unto 

24 Zo'ar. Then the Lord rained upon Sod'om and 
upon Go-mor'rah brimstone and fire from the Lord 

25 out of heaven; and he overthrew those cities, 
and all the Plain, and all the inhabitants of 
the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

26 ^But his wife looked back from behind him, and she 
became 'a pillar of salt. 

27 ^And A'bra-ham gat up early in the morning to the 
place where "he stood before the Loed: 

28 And he looked toward Sod'om and Go-mor'rah, and to- 
ward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, "the 
smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace. 

29 ^And it came to pass, wnen God destroyed the cities 
of the plain, that God "remembered A'bra-ham, and sent Lot 
out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the 
cities in the which Lot dwelt. 

30 ^And Lot went up out of Zo'ar, and "dwelt in the 
mountain, and his two daughters with him ; for he feared to 
dwell in Zo'ar : and he dwelt in a cave,he and his two daughters. 

31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is 
old, and there is not a man in the earth 'to come in unto us 
after the manner of all the earth : 

32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will 
lie with him, that we ''may preserve seed of our father. 

33 And they made their father drink wine that night : and 
the firstborn went in, and lay with her father ; and he per- 
ceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. 

34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said 
unto the younger. Behold, I lay yesternight with my father : 
let us make him drink wine this night also ; and go thou in, 
and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. 

35 And they made their father drink wine that night also : 
and the younger arose, and lay with him ; and he perceived 
not when she lay down, nor when she arose. 

36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by 
their fether. 

37 And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name 
Mo'ab : 'the same is the father of the Mo'ab-ites unto this day. 

38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his 
name Ben-am'mi : 'the same is the father of the children of 
Am'mon unto this day. 

CHAPTER XX. 

Abraham sojourneth at Gerar — He denieth his wife^ at^d loseth her. 

AND A'bra-ham journeyed from "thence toward the 
south country, and dwelt between ''Ka'desh and Shur,, 
and 'sojourned in Ge'rar. 

2 And A'bra-ham said of Sa'rah his wife, ''She is my sister : 
and A-bim'e-lech king of Ge'rar sent, and *took Sa'rah. 

3 But -'^God came to A-bim'e-lech "in a dream by night, and 
said to him, ''Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman 
which thou hast taken ; for she is fa man's wife. 

4 But A-bim'e-lech had not come near her: and he said. 
Lord, 'wilt thou slay also a righteous nation ? 

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 
heart and innocency of my hands have I done this. 

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 with- 
held thee from sinning "against me : therefore suffered I 
thee not to touch her. 

7 Now therefore restore the man his wife; "for he is a 
prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live : 
and if thou restore her not, "know thou that thou shalt 
surely die, thou, ''and all that are thine. 

8 Therefore A-bim'e-lech rose early in the morning, and 
called all his servants, and told all these things in their ears : 
and the men were sore afraid. 

9 Then A-bim'e-lech called A'bra-ham, 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 kingdom a great 
sin ? thou hast done deeds unto me 'that ought not to be done. 

10 And A-bim'e-lech said unto A'braham,What sawest thou, 
that thou hast done this thing? 



26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and 

27 she became a pillar of salt. And A'bra-ham gat up 
early in the morning to the place where he had 

28 stood before the Lord : and he looked toward Sod'om 
and Go-mor'rah, and toward all the land of the 
Plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the land 
went up as the smoke of a furnace. 

29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the 
cities of the Plain, that God remembered A'bra-ham, 
and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, 
when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt 

30 And Lot went up out of Zo'ar, and dwelt in the 
mountain, and his two daughters with him ; for he 
feared to dwell in Zo'ar ; and he dwelt in a cave, he 

31 and his two daughters. And the firstborn said unto 
the younger. Our father is old, and there is not a 
man in the earth to come in unto us after the man 

32 ner of all the earth : come, let us make our father 
drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may 

33 preserve seed of our father. And they made their 
lather drink wine that night : and the firstborn went 
in, and lay with her father ; and he knew not when 

34 she lay down, nor when she arose. And it came to 
pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the 
younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father . 
let us make him drink wine this night also ; and go 
thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed 

35 of our father. And they made their father drink 
wine that night also : and the younger arose, and 
lay with him ; and he knew not when she lay down, 

36 nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters 

37 of Lot with child by their father. And the firstborn 
bare a son, and called his name Mo'ab : the same is 

38 the father of the Mo'ab-ites unto this day. And the 
younger, she also bare a son, and called his 
Ben-am'mi : the same is the father of 
of Am'mon unto this day, 

^ V And A'braham journeyed from thence toward the 
land of the South, and dwelt between Ka'desh and 

2 Shur ; and he sojourned in Ge'rar. And A'bra-ham 
said of Sa'rah his wife. She is my sister : and A-bim'e- 

3 lech king of Ge'rar sent, and took Sa'rah. But God 
came to A-bim'e-lech in a dream of the night, and 
said to him. Behold, thou art but a dead man, be- 
cause of the woman which thou hast taken ; for she 

4 is a man's wife. Now A-bim'e-lech had not come 
near her : and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay even a 

5 righteous nation? Said he not him.self unto me, 
She is my sister? and she, even she herself said. 
He is my brother : in the integrity of my heart and 

6 the innocency of my hands have I done this. And 
God said unto him in the dream, Yea, I know that 
in the integrity of thy heart thou hast done this, and 
I also withheld thee from sinning against me : there- 

7 fore suffered I thee not to touch her. Now there- 
fore restore the man's wife ; for he is a prophet, and he 
shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live : and if thou 
restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely 

8 die, thou, and all that are thine. And A-bim'e-lech 
rose early in the morning, and called all his serv- 
ants, and told all these things in their ears: and 

9 the men were sore afraid. Then A-bim'e-lech called 
A'bra-ham, and said unto him. What hast thou done 
unto us? and wherein have I sinned against thee, 
that thou hast brought on me and on my kingdom a 
great sin ? thou hast done deeds unto me that ought 

10 not to' be done. AndA-bim'e-lech said unto A'bra-ham, 
What sawest thou, that thou hast done this thing?

1 1 And A'bra-ham said,Because I thought,Surely 'the fear of 
God is not in this place; and 'they will slay me for my wife's sake. 

12 And yet indeed "she is my sister; she is the daughter 
of my father, but not the daughter of my mother ; and she 
became my wife. 

13 And it came to pass, when ''God caused me to wander 
from my father's house, that I said unto her. This is thy kind- 
ness which thou shalt shew unto me ; at every place whither 
we shall come, "say of me. He is my brother. 

14 And A-bim'e-lech 'took sheep, and oxen, and menserv- 
ants, and womenservants, and gave them unto A'bra-ham, 
and restored him Sa'rah his wife. 

15 And A-bim'e-lech said. Behold, "my land is before thee : 
dwell fwhere it pleaseth thee. 

16 And unto Sa'rah he said. Behold, I have given 'thy 
brother a thousand pieces of silver : "behold, he is to thee ''a 
covering of the eyes, unto all that are with thee, and with 
all other: thus she was reproved. 

1 7 If So A'bra-ham Sprayed unto God: and God healed A-bim'- 
e-lech, and hiswife,andhis maidservants; and they bare children. 

18 For the Lord ^had fast closed up all the wombs of the 
house of A-bim'e-lech, because of Sa'rah, A'bra-ham's wife. 

CHAPTER XXI. 

If<iac born and circumcised — Hagar and Ishmael cast forth. 

AND the Lord "visited Sa'rah as he had said, and the 
Lord did unto Sa'rah ''as he had spoken. 

2 For Sa'rah ''conceived, and bare A'bra-ham a son in his old 
age, ''at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 

3 And A'bra-ham called the name of his son that was born 
unto him, whom Sa'rah bare to him, "I'saac. 

4 And A'bra-ham /circumcised his son I'saac being eight 
days old, "as God had commanded him. 

5 And ''A'bra-ham was a hundred years old, when his son 
I'saac was born unto him. 

6 ^And Sa'rah said, 'God hath made me to laugh, so that 
all that hear *will laugh with me. 

7 And she said. Who would have said unto A'bra-ham, that 
Sa'rah should have given children suck ? 'for I have borne hivi 
a son in his old age. 

8 And the child grew, and was weaned : And A'bra-ham 
made a great feast the same day that I'saac was weaned. 

9 ^And Sa'rah saw the son of Ha'gar "the E-gyp'tian, 
"which she had borne unto A'bra-ham, "mocking. 

10 Wherefore she said unto A'bra-ham, "Cast out this bond- 
woman and her son : for the son of this bondwoman shall 
not be heir with my son, even with I'saac. 

11 And the thing was very grievous in A'bra-ham's sight 
'because of his son. 

12 ^And God said unto A'bra-ham, Let it not be grievous 
in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bond- 
woman ; in all that Sa'rah hath said unto thee, hearken unto 
her voice ; for in ""I'saac shall thy seed be called. 

13 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make 'a 
nation, because he is thy seed. 

14 And A'bra-ham rose up early in the morning, and took 
bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Ha'gar, putting 
it on her shoulder, and the child, and 'sent her away : and she 
departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Be'er-she'ba. 

15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the 
child under one of the shrubs. 

16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a 
good way off, as it were a bowshot : for she said, Let me not 
see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, 
and lifted up her voice, and wept. 

17 And "God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of 
God called to Ha'gar out of heaven, and said unto her. What 
aileth thee, Ha'gar ? fear not ; for God hath heard the voice 
of the lad where he is. 



11 And A'bra-ham said. Because I thought, Surely 
the fear of God is not in this place; and they will 

12 slay me for my wife's sake. And moreover she is 
indeed my sister, the daughter of my father, but 
not the daughter of my mother ; and she became 

13 my wife: and it came to pass, when God caused me 
to wander from my father's house, that I said unto 
her. This is thy kindness which thou shalt shew 
unto me ; at every place whither we shall come, 

14 say of me. He is my brother. And A-bim'e-lech 
took sheep and oxen, and menservants and women- 
servants, and gave them unto A'bra-ham, and restored 

15 him Sa'rah his wife. And A-bim'e-lech said, Behold, 
my land is before thee : dwell where it pleaseth thee. 

16 And unto Sa'rah he said, Behold, I have given thy 
brother a thousand pieces of silver: behold, 'it is 
for thee a covering of the eyes to all that are with 

17 thee; and ^in respect of all thou art righted. And 
A'bra-ham prayed unto God : and God healed A-bim'e- 
lech, and his wife, and his maidservants ; and they 

18 bare children. For the Lord had fast closed up all 
the wombs of the house of A-bim'e-lech, because of 
Sa'rah A'bra-ham's wife. 

•^i And the Lord visited Sa'rah as he had said, and 

2 the Lord did unto Sa'rah as he had spoken. And 
Sa'rah conceived, and bare A'bra-ham a son in his 
old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to 

3 him. And A'bra-ham called the name of his son that 
was born unto him, whom Sa'rah bare to him, I'saac. 

4 And A'bra-ham circumcised his son I'saac when he 
was eight days old, as God had commanded him. 

5 And A'bra-ham was an hundred years old, when his 

6 son I'saac was born unto him. And Sa'rah said, God 
hath 'made me to laugh ; every one that heareth 

7 will laugh with me. And she said. Who would 
have said unto A'bra-ham, that Sa'rah should give 
children suck ? for I have borne him a son in his old 
age. 

8 And the child grew, and was weaned : and A'bra- 
ham made a great feast on the day that I'saac was 

9 weaned. And Sa'rah saw the son of Ha'gar the 
E-gyp'tian, which she had borne unto A'bra-ham, 

10 ^mocking. Wherefore she said unto A'bra-ham, Cast 
out this bondwoman and her son : for the son of 
this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even 

1 1 with I'saac. And the thing was very grievous in 

12 A'bra-ham's sight on account of his son. And God 
said unto A'bra-ham, Let it not be grievous in thy 
sight because of the lad, and because of thy bond- 
woman ; in all that Sa'rah saith unto thee, hearken 
unto her voice ; for in I'saac shall thy seed be called. 

13 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make 

14 a nation, because he is thy seed. And A'bra-ham 
rose up early in the morning, and took bread and a 
^bottle of water, and gave it unto Ha'gar, putting it 
on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away : 
and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of 

15 Be'er-she'ba. And the water in the bottle was spent, 
and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. 

16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a 
good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, 
Let me not look upon the death of the child. And 
she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and 

17 wept. And God heard the voice of the lad; and the 
angel of God called to Ha'gar out of heaven, and said 
unto her,' What aileth thee, Ha'gar ? fear not ; for 
God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.

18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for 
"I will make him a great nation. 

1 9 And "'God opened her eyes,and she saw a well of water; and 
she went,and filled the bottle with water,and gave the lad drink. 

20 And God "was with the lad ; and he grew, and dwelt in 
the wilderness, ''and became an archer. 

21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Pa'ran : and his 
mother "took him a wife out of the land of E'gypt. 

22 ^And it came to pass at that time, that ''A-bim'e-lech 
and Phi'chol the chief captain of his host spake unto A'bra- 
ham, saying, "God is with thee in all that thou doest: 

23 Now therefore ''swear unto me here by God, fthat thou 
wilt not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my 
son's son ; but according to the kindness that I have done 
unto thee, thou shalt do unto me, and to the land wherein 
thou hast sojourned. 

24 And A'bra-ham said, I will swear. 

25 And A'bra-ham reproved A-bim'e-lech because of a well of 
water, which A-bim'e-lech's servants 'had violently taken away. 

26 And A-bim'e-lech said,I wot not who hath done this thing: 
neither didst thou tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but to-day. 

27 And A'bra-ham took sheep and oxen, and gave them 
unto A-bim'e-lech ; and both' of them -^made a covenant. 

28 And A'bra-ham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by 
themselves. 

29 And A-bim'e-lech said unto A'bra-ham,' What mean these 
seven ewe lambs which thou hast set by themselves ? 

30 And he said. For these seven ewe lambs shalt thou take 
of my hand, that *they may be a witness unto me, that I 
have digged this well. 

31 Wherefore he 'called that place ||Be'er-she'ba; because 
there they sware both of them. 

32 Thus they made a covenant at Be'er-she'ba : then 
A-bim'e-lech rose up, and Phi'chol the chief captain of his 
host, and they returned into the land of the Phi-lis'tines. 

33 ^And A'bra-ham planted a || grove in Be'er-she'ba, and 
*called there on the name of the Lord, 'the everlasting God. 

34 And A'bra-ham sojourned in the Phi-lis'tines' land 
many days. 

CHAPTER XXII. 

Abtaham tempted to offer Isaac— He giveth proof of his faith and obedience. 

AND it came to pass after these things, that "God did 
tempt A'bra-ham, and said unto him, A'bra-ham : and 
he said, fBehold, here I am. 

2 And he said, Take now thy son, ""thine only %on I'saac, 
whom thou lovest, and get thee ""into the land of Mo-ri'ah ; 
and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the 
mountains which I will tell thee of. 

3 -^And A'bra-ham rose up early in the morning, and sad- 
dled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and 
I'saac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and 
rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him. 

4 Then on the third day A'bra-ham lifted up his eyes, and 
saw the place afar off. 

5 And A'bra-ham said unto his young men. Abide ye here 
with the ass ; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, 
and come again to you. 

6 And A'bra-ham took the wood of the burnt offering, and 
''laid it upon I'saac his son ; and he took the fire in his hand, 
and a knife ; and they went both of them together. 

7 And I'saac spake unto A'bra-ham his father, and said. My 
father : and he said, fHere am I, my son. And he said. 
Behold the fire and the wood : but where is the || lamb for 
a burnt offering? 

8 And A'bra-ham said. My son, God will provide himself a 
lamb for a burnt offering : so they went both of them together. 

9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and 
A'bra-ham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and 
bound I'saac his son, and 'laid him on the altar upon the wood. 



18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; 

19 for I will make him a great nation. And God 
opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water ; and 
she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave 

20 the lad drink. And God was with the lad, and he 
grew; and he dwelt in the wilderness, and 'became 

21 an archer. And he dwelt in the wilderness of 
Pa'ran : and his mother took him a wife out of the 
land of E'gypt. 

22 And it came to pass at that time, that A-bim'e-lech 
and Phi'col the captain of his host spake unto A'bra- 
him, saying, God is with thee in all that thou doest : 

23 now therefore swear unto me here by God that thou 
wilt not deal falsely with me, nor with ^my son, nor 
with my son's son : but according to the kindness 
that I have done unto thee, thou shalt do unto me, 

24 and to the land wherein thou hast sojourned. And 

25 A'bra-ham said,I will swear. AndA'bra-ham reproved 
A-bim'e-lech because of the well of water, which 
A-bim'e-lech's servants had violently taken away. 

26 And A-bim'e-lech said, I know not who hath done this 
thing : neither didst thou tell me, neither yet heard 

27 1 of it, but to-day. And A'bra-ham took sheep and 
oxen, and gave them unto A-bim'e-lech ; and they two 

28 made a covenant. And A'bra-ham set seven ewe 

29 lambs of the flock by themselves. And A-bim'e-lech 
said unto A'bra-ham, What mean these seven ewe 

30 lambs which thou hast set by themselves ? And he 
said. These seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my 
hand, that it may be a witness unto me, that I have 

31 digged this well. Wherefore he called that place 
Be'er-she'ba ; because there they sware both of them. 

32 So they made a covenant at Be'er-she'ba : and A-bim'e- 
lech rose up, and Phi'col the captain of his host, and 

33 they returned into the land of the Phi-lis'tines. And 
A'bra-ham planted a tamarisk tree in Be'er-she'ba, and 
called there on the name of the Lord, the Ever- 

34 lasting God. And A'bra-ham sojourned in the land 
of the Phi-lis'tines many days. 

«^ And it came to pass after these things, that God 
did prove A'bra-ham, and said unto him, A'bra-ham ; 

2 and he said. Here am I. And he said, Take now 
thy son, thine only son, whom thou lovest, even 
I'saac, and get thee into the land of Mo-ri'ah ; and 
offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the 

3 mountains which I will tell thee of. And A'bra-ham 
rose early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and 
took two of his young men with him, and I'saac his 
son ; and he clave the wood for the burnt offering, 
and rose up, and went unto the place of which God 

4 had told him. On the third day A'bra-ham lifted 
Sup his eyes, and saw the place afar off. And A'bra- 
ham said unto his young men. Abide ye here with 
the ass, and I and the lad will go yonder; and we 

6 will worship, and come again to you. And A'bra- 
ham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it 
upon I'saac his son ; and he took in his hand the fire 
and the knife ; and they went both of them together. 

7 And I'saac spake unto A'bra-ham his father, and said. 
My father : and he said. Here am I, my son. And 
he said. Behold, the fire and the wood : but where 

8 is the lamb for a burnt offering? And A'bra-ham 
said, God will ^provide himself the lamb for a burnt 
offering, my son : so they went both of them to- 

9gether. And they came to the place which God 
had told him of; and A'bra-ham built the altar 
there, and laid the wood in order, and bound I'saac 
his son, and laid him on the altar, upon the wood.

10 And A'bra-ham stretched forth his hand, and took the 
knife to slay his son. 

11 And the Angel of the Lord called unto him out of heav- 
en, and said, A'bra-ham, A'bra-ham : and he said. Here am I. 

12 And he said,-''Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither 
do thou any thing unto him: for "now I know that thou 
fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine 
only sow, from me. 

13 And A'bra-ham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and 
behold, behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns : 
and A'bra-ham went and took the ram, and offered him up 
for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. 

14 And A'bra-ham called the name of that place || Je-ho'- 
vah-ji'reh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the 
Lord it shall be seen. 

15 ^And the Angel of the Lord called unto A'bra-ham 
out of heaven the second time, 

16 And said, *By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for 
because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld 
thy son, thine only son, 

17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I 
will multiply thy seed 'as the stars of the heaven, and 'as 
the sand which is upon the sea fshore; and 'thy seed shall 
possess "the gate of his enemies ; 

18 "And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be 
blessed; "because thou hast obeyed my voice. 

19 So A'bra-ham returned unto his young men, and they 
rose up and went together to ''Be'er-she'ba ; and A'bra-ham 
dwelt at Be'er-she'ba. 

20 ^And it came to pass after these things, that it was 
told A'bra-ham, saying, Behold, 'Mil'cah, she hath also borne 
children unto thy brother Na'hor; 

21 'Huz his firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Kem'u-el 
the father 'of A'ram, 

22 And Che'sed, and Ha'zo, and Pil'dash, and Jid'laph, and 
Beth'u-el.- 

23 And 'Beth'u-el begat "Re-bek'ah : these eight Mil'cah 
did bear to Na'hor, A'bra-ham's brother. 

24 And his concubine, whose name was Reu'raah, she bare 
also Te'bah, and Ga'ham, and Tha'hash, and Ma'a-chab. 

CHAPTER XXIII. 

Age and death of Sarah— Purchase of Machpelah. 

AND Sa'rah was a hundred and seven and twenty years old : 
thise were the years of the life of Sa'rah. 

2 And Sa'rah died in "Kir'jath-ar'ba; the same is 'He'bron 
in the land of Ca'naan : and A'bra-ham came to mourn for 
Sa'rah, and to weep for her. 

3 ^And A'bra-ham stood up from before his dead, and 
spake unto the sons of Heth, saying, 

4 "I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: ''give me a 
possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my 
dead out of my sight. 

5 And the children of Heth answered A'bra-ham, saying 
unto him, 

6 Hear us, my lord: thou art fa 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. 

7 And A'bra-ham stood up, and bowed himself to the 
people of the land, even to the children of Heth. 

8 And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind 
that I should bury my dead out of my sight, hear me, and 
entreat for me to E'phron the son of Zo'har, 

9 That he may give me the cave of Mach-pe'lah, which he 
hath, which is in the end of his field ; for fas much money 
as it is worth he shall give it me for a possession of a bury- 
ingplace amongst you. 

10 And E'phron dwelt among the children of Heth; and 



10 And A'bra-ham stretched forth his hand, and took 

11 the knife to slay his son. And the angel of the Lord 
called unto him out of heaven, and said, A'bra-ham, 

12 A'bra-ham : and he said. Here am I. And he said. Lay 
not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing 
unto him : for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing 
thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son, from 

13 me. And A'bra-ham lifted up his eyes, and looked, 
and 'behcJd, behind him a ram caught in the thicket 
by his horns : and A'bra-ham went and took the ram, 
and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead 

14 of his son. And A'bra-ham called the name of that 
place ^Je-ho'vah-ji'reh : as it is said to this day, In the 

15 mount of the Lord 'it shall be provided. And the 
angel of the Lord called unto A'bra-ham a second 

16 time out of heaven, and said. By myself have I sworn, 
saith the Lord, because thou hast done this thing, 

17 and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: that 
in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I 
will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and 
as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy 

18 seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; and in 
thy seed shall all the nations of the earth ^be blessed ; 

19 because thou hast obeyed my voice. So A'bra-ham 
returned unto his young men, and they rose up and 
went together to Be'er-she'ba ; and A'bra-ham dwelt 
at Be'er-she'ba. 

20 And it came to pass after these things, that it was 
told A'bra-ham, saying. Behold Mil'cah, she also hath 

21 borne children unto thy brother Na'hor; Uz, his first- 
born, and Buz his brother, and Kem'u-el the father of 

22 A'ram ; and Che'sed, and Ha'zo, and Pil'dash, and 

23 Jid'laph, and Beth'u-el. And Beth'u-el begat Re- 
bek'ah: these eight did Mil'cah bear to Na'hor, 

24 A'bra-ham's brother. And his concubine, whose 
name was Reu'mah, she also bare Te'bah, and Ga'ham, 
and Ta'hash, and Ma'a-cah. 

^O And the life of Sa'rah was an hundred and seven 
and twenty years : these were the years of the life of 

2 Sa'rah. And Sa'rah died in Kir'i-ath-ar'ba (the same 
is He'bron), in the land of Ca'naan : and A'bra-ham 

3 came to mourn for Sa'rah, and to weep for her. And 
A'bra-ham rose up from before his dead, and spake 

4 unto the children of Heth, saying, I am a stranger 
and a sojourner with you ; give me a possession of a 
buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead 

5 out of my sight. And the children of Heth an- 
Gswered A'bra-ham, saying unto him, Hear us, my 

lord : thou art 'a 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 

7 mayest bury thy dead. And A'bra-ham rose up, and 
bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the 

8 children of Heth. And he communed with them, 
saying. If it be your mind that I should bury my 
dead out of my sight, hear me, and intreat for me 

9 to E'phron the son of Zo'har, that he may give me 
the cave of Mach-pe'lah, which he hath, which is 
in the end of his field ; for the full price let him 
give it to me in the midst of you for a pos- 

10 session of a buryingplace. Now E'phron was sit- 
ting in the midst of the children of Heth: and

E'phron the Hit'tite answered A'bra-ham in the faudience of 
the children of Heth, even of all that ■''went in at the gate of 
his city, saying, 

11 'Nay, my lord, hear me : the field give I thee, and the 
cave that is therein, I give it thee ; in the presence of the 
sons of my people give I it thee : bury thy dead. 

12 And A'bra-ham bowed down himself before the people 
of the land. 

13 And he spake unto E'phron in the audience of the 
people of the land, saying, But if thou wilt give it, I pray 
thee, hear me : I will give thee money for the field ; take it 
of me, and I will bury my dead there. 

14 And E'phron answered A'bra-ham, saying unto him, 

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

16 And A'bra-ham hearkened unto E'phron; and A'bra- 
ham 'weighed to E'phron the silver, which he had named in 
the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of 
silver, current money with the merchant. 

17 ^And *the field of E'phron, which was in Mach-pe'lah, 
which was before Mam're, the field, and the cave which was 
therein, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in 
all the borders round about, were made sure 

18 Unto A'bra-ham for a possession in the presence of the 
children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his 
city. 

19 And after this, A'bra-ham buried Sa'rah his wife in the 
cave of the field of Mach-pe'lah before Mam're : the same is 
He'bron in the land of Ca'naan. 

20 And the field, and the cave that is therein, 'were made 
sure unto A'bra-ham for a possession of a buryingplace by 
the sons of Heth. 

CHAPTER XXIV. 

The marriage of Isaac and Rebekah, 

AND A'bra-ham "was old, and fwell stricken in age : and 
the Lord 'had blessed A'bra-ham in all things. 

2 And A'bra-ham said "unto his eldest servant of his house, 
that ''ruled over all that he had, "Put, I pray thee, thy hand 
under my thigh : 

3 And I will make thee •'swear by the Lord, the God of 
heaven, and the God of the earth, that "thou shalt not take 
a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Ca'naan-ites, 
among whom I dwell : 

4 *But thou shalt go 'unto my country, and to my kindred, 
and take a wife unto my son I'saac. 

6 And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman 
will not be willing to follow me unto this land : must I needs 
bring thy son again unto the land from whence thou camest ? 

6 And A'bra-ham said unto him. Beware thou that thou 
bring not my son thither again. 

7 ^The Lord God of heaven, which *took me from my 
father's house, and from the land of my kindred, and which 
spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, TJnto thy 
seed will I give this land; ""he shall send his angel before 
thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence. 

8 And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, 
then "thou shalt be clear from this my oath : only bring 
not my son thither again. 

9 And the servant put his hand under the thigh of A'bra- 
ham his master, and sware to him concerning that matter. 

10 ^And the servant took ten camels of the camels of 
his master, and departed; "H for all the goods of his master 
were in his hand : and he arose, and went to Mes-o-po-ta'mi-a, 
unto "the city of Na'hor. 

11 And he made his camels to kneel down without the 
city by a well of water at the time of the evening, even the 
time t'that women go out to draw water : 



E'phron the Hit'tite answered A'bra-ham in the 
audience of the children of Heth, even of all that 

11 went in at the gate of his city, saying. Nay, my 
lord, hear me : the field give I thee, and the cave 
that is therein, I give it thee; in the presence of 
the sons of my people give I it thee : bury thy 

12 dead. And A'bra-ham bowed himself down before 

13 the people of the land. And he spake unto E'phron 
in the audience of the people of the land, saying, 
But if thou wilt, I pray thee, hear me : I will give 
the price of the field ; take it of me, and I will bury 

14 my dead there. And E'phron answered A'bra-ham, 

15 saying unto him. My lord, hearken unto me : a piece 
of land worth four hundred shekels of silver, what 
is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy 

16 dead. And A'bra-ham hearkened unto E'phron ; and 
A'bra-ham weighed to E'phron the silver, which he 
had named in the audience of the children of Heth, 
four hundred shekels of silver, current money with 

17 the merchant. So the field of E'phron, which was 
in Mach-pe'lah, which was before Mam're, the field, 
and the cave which was therein, and all the trees 
that were in the field, that were in all the border 

18 thereof round about, were made sure unto A'bra-ham 
for a possession in the presence of the children of 
Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city. 

19 And after this, A'bra-ham buried Sa'rah his wife in the 
cave of the field of Mach-pe'lah before Mam're (the 

20 same is He'bron), in the land of Ca'naan. And the 
field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure 
unto A'bra-ham for a possession of a buryingplace by 
the children of Heth. 

^'* And A'bra-ham was old, and well stricken in age : 
and the Lord had blessed A'bra-ham in all things. 

2 And A'bra-ham said unto his servant, the elder of his 
house, that ruled over all that he had. Put, I pray 

3 thee, thy hand under my thigh : and I will make 
thee swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and the 
God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife for 
my son of the daughters of the Ca'naan-ites, among 

4 whom I dwell : but thou shalt go unto my country, 
and to my kindred, and take a wife for my son I'saac. 

5 And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the 
woman will not be willing to follow me unto this 
land : must I needs bring thy son again unto the 

6 land from whence thou camest? And A'bra-ham 
said unto him. Beware thou that thou bring not my 

7 son thither again. The Lord, the God of heaven, 
that took me from my father's house, and from the 
land of my nativity, and that spake unto me, and 
that sware unto me, saying. Unto thy seed will I give 
this land; he shall send his angel before thee, and 

8 thou shalt take a wife for my son from thence. And 
if the woman be not willing to follow thee, then thou 
shalt be clear from this my oath ; only thou shalt 

9 not bring my son thither again. And the servant 
put his hand under the thigh of A'bra-ham his 
master, and sware to him concerning this matter. 

10 And the servant took ten camels, of the camels 
of his master, and departed; 'having all goodly 
things of his master's in his hand : and he arose, 
and went to ^Mes-o-po-ta'mi-a, unto the city of Na'- 

llhor. And he made the camels to kneel down 
without the city by the well of water at the time of 
evening, the time that women go out to draw water.

12 And he said, ''O Lord God of my master A'bra-ham, I 
pray fehee, 'send me good speed this day, and shew kind- 
ness unto my master A'bra-ham. 

13 Behold, 'I stand here by the well of water ; and "the 
daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water : 

14 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 I'saac ; and "thereby shall I know that thou 
hast shewed kindness unto my master. 

15 ^And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, 
that, behold, Re-bek'ah came out, who was born to Beth'u-el, 
son of ^Mil'cah, the wife of Nn'lior, A'bra-ham's brother, 
with her pitcher upon her shoulder. 

16 And the damsel "was fvery fair to look upon, a virgin, 
neither had any man known her : and she went down to 
the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up. 

17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said. Let me, I 
pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher. 

18 ^And she said, Drink, my lord : and she hasted, and 
let down her pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink. 

19 And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I 
will draw water for thy camels also, until they have done 
drinking. 

20 And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the 
trough, and ran again unto the well to draw water, and 
drew for all his camels. 

21 And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit 
whether "the Lord had made his journey prosperous or not. 

22 And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, 
that the man took a golden 'H earring of half a shekel weight, 
and two bracelets for her hands often shekels weight of gold ; 

23 And said. Whose daughter art thou ? tell me, I pray thee : 
is there room in thy father's house for us to lodge in? 

24 And she said unto him, '^I am the daughter of Beth'u-el 
the son of Mil'cah, which she bare unto Na'hor. 

25 She said moreover unto him. We have both straw and 
provender enough, and room to lodge in. 

26 And the man ''bowed down his head, and worshipped 
the Lord. 

27 And he said, 'Blessed be the Lord God of my master 
A'bra-ham, who hath not left destitute my master of ■'^his 
mercy and his truth : I being in the way, the Lord 'led me 
to the house of my master's brethren. 

28 And the damsel ran, and told them of her mother's 
house these things. 

29 ^And Re-bek'ah had a brother, and his name was 
''La'ban : and La'ban ran out unto the man, unto the well. 

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 Re-bek'ah his sister, saying, Thus spake the man 
unto me, that he came unto the man ; and, behold, he 
stood by the camels at the well. 

31 And he said. Come in, *thou blessed of the Lord; 
wherefore standest thou without? for I have prepared the 
house, and room for the camels. 

32 ^And the man came into the house : and he ungirded 
his camels, and 'gave straw and provender for the camels, 
and water to wash his feet, and the men's feet that were 
with him. 

33 And there was set meat before him to eat : but he said, 
'I will not eat, until I have told mine errand. And he said. 
Speak on. 

34 And he said, I am A'bra-ham's servant. 

35 And the Lord "hath blessed my master greatly, and 
he is become great : and he hath given him flocks, and 
herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maid- 
servants, and camels, and asses. 



12 And he said, O Lord, the God of my master 
A'bra-ham, send me, I pray thee, good speed this 
day, and shew kindness unto my master A'bra- 

13 ham. Behold, I stand by the fountain of water; 
and the daughters of the men of the city come 

14 out to draw water: 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 I'saac ; and thereby shall I know that 

1 5 thou hast shewed kindness unto my master. And it 
came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, be- 
hold, Re-bek'ah came out, who was born to Beth'u-el 
the son of Mil'cah, the wife of Na'hor, A'bra-ham's 

16brothp'-, with her pitcher upon her shoulder. And 
the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, 
neither had any man known her : and she went down 
to the fountain, and filled her pitcher, and came up. 

17 And the servant ran to meet hery and said, Give me 
to drink, I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher. 

18 And she said. Drink, my lord : and she hasted, and 
let down her pitcher upon her hand, and gave him 

19 drink. And when she had done giving him drink, 
she said, I will draw for thy camels also, until they 

20 have done drinking. And she hasted, and emptied 
her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the 

21 well to draw, and drew for all his camels. And the 
man looked steadfastly on her; holding his peace, to 
know whether the Lord had made his journey pros- 

22 perous or not. And it came to pass, as the camels 
had done driuking, that the man took a golden ring 
of 'half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her 

23 hands of ten shekels weight of gold; and said. 
Whose daughter art thou ? tell me, I pray thee. Is 
there room in thy father's house for us to lodge in ? 

24 And she said unto him, I am the daughter of 
Beth'u-el the son of Mil'cah, which she bare unto 

25 Na'hor. She said moreover unto him. We have both 
straw and provender enough, and room to lodge in. 

26 And the man bowed his head, and worshipped the 

27 Lord. And he said, Blessed be the Lord, the God 
of my master A'bra-ham, who hath not forsaken his 
mercy and his truth toward my master : as for me, 
the Lord hath led me in the way to the house of 

28 my master's brethren. And the damsel ran, and told 

29 her mother's house according to these words. And 
Re-bek'ah had a brother, and his name was La'ban : 
and La'ban ran out unto the man, unto the fountain. 

30 And it came to pass, when he saw the ring, and the 
bracelets upon his sister's hands, and when he heard 
the words of Re-bek'ah his sister, saying. Thus spake 
the man unto me ; that he came unto the man ; and, 

31 behold, he stood by the camels at the fountain. And 
he said, Come in, thou blessed of the Lord ; where- 
fore standest thou without ? for I have prepared the 

32 house, and room for the camels. And the man came 
into the house, and he ungirded the camels ; and he 
gave straw and provender for the camels, and water 
to wash his feet and the men's feet that were with 

33 him. And there was set meat before him to eat : but 
he said, I will not eat, until I have told mine errand. 

34 And he said. Speak on. And he said, I am A'bra- 

35 ham's servant. And the Lord hath 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.

not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Ca'naan- 
ites, in whose land I dwell : 

38 'But thou shalt go unto my father's house, and to my 
kindred, and take a wife unto my son. 

39 ""And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman 
will not follow me. 

40 'And he said unto me. The Lord, 'before whom I walk, 
will send his angel with thee, and prosper thy way ; and thou 
shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my 
father's house : 

41 "Then shalt thou be clear from this my oath, when thou 
comest to my kindred ; and if they give not thee one, thou 
shalt be clear from my oath. 

42 And I came this day unto the well, and said, "O Lord 
God of my master A'bra-ham, if now thou do prosper my 
way which I go : 

43 ^Behold, I stand by the well of water ; and it shall come 
to pass, that when the virgin cometh forth to draw water, 
and I say to her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water of thy 
pitcher to drink ; 

44 And she say to me. Both drink thou, and I will also 
draw for thy camels : let the same be the woman whom the 
Lord hath appointed out for my master's son. 

45 'And before I had done 'speaking in mine heart, behold, 
Re-bek'ah 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. 

46 And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her 
shoulder, and said, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink 
also : so I drank, and she made the camels drink also. 

47 And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter art thou ? 
And she said, The daughter of Beth'u-el, Na'hor's son, whom 
Mil'cah bare unto him: and I "put the earring upon her 
face, and the bracelets upon her hands. 

48 'And I bowed down my head, and worshipped the 
Lord, and blessed the Lord God of my master A'bra-ham, 
which had led me in the right way to take "my master's 
brother's daughter unto his son. 

49 And now, if ye will ''deal kindly and truly with my mas- 
ter, tell me : and if not, tell me ; that I may turn to the right 
hand, or to the left. 

50 Then La'ban and Beth'u-el answered and said,*The thing 
proceedeth from the Lord : we cannot -^speak unto thee bad 
or good. 

51 Behold, Re-bek'ah 'is before thee ; take her, and go, and 
let her be thy master's son's wife, as the Lord hath spoken. 

52 And it came to pass, that,' when A'bra-hara's servant 
heard their words, he "worshipped the Lord, bowing himself 
to the earth. 

53 And the servant brought forth fjewels of silver, and 
jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to Re-bek'ah : he 
gave also to her brother and to her mother ^precious things. 

54 And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were 
with him, and tarried all night ; and they rose up in the 
morning, and he said, 'Send me away unto my master. 

55 And her brother and her mother said. Let the damsel 
abide with us || a few days, at the least ten; after that she 
shall go. 

56 And he said unto them. Hinder me not, seeing the 
Lord hath prospered my way ; send me away that I may go 
to my master. 

57 And they said. We will call the damsel, and inquire at 
her mouth. 

58 And they called Re-bek'ah, and said unto her, Wilt thou 
go with this man? And she said, I will go. 



36 And Sa'rah my master's wife bare a son to ray master 
when she was old : and unto him hath he given all 

37 that he hath. And my master made me swear, say- 
ing. Thou shalt not take a wife for my son of the 
daughters of the Ca'naan-ites, in whose land I dwell : 

38 but thou shalt go unto my father's house, and to my 

39 kindred, and take a wife for my son. Aiid I said 
unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not 

40 follow me. And he said unto me. The Lord, before 
whom I walk, will send his angel with thee, and 
prosper thy way ; and thou shalt take a wife for my 

41 son of my kindred, and of my father's house : then 
shalf thou be clear from my oath, when thou comest 
to my kindred ; and if they give her not to thee, 

42 thou shalt be clear from my oath. And I came this 
day unto the fountain, and said, O Lord, the God of 
my master A'bra-ham, if now thou do prosper my 

43 — V which I go : behold, I stand by the fountain of 
V iter ; and let it come to pass, that the maiden which 
Cometh forth to draw, to whom I shall say. Give me, 
I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher to drink ; 

44 and she shall say to me. Both drink thou, anc. I will 
also draw for thy camels : let the same be the woman 
whom the Lord hath appointed for my master's son. 

45 And before I had done speaking in E^!ue heart, bo- 
hold, Re-bek'ah came forth with her pitcher on her 
shoulder ; and she went down unto the fountain, and 
drew: and I said unto her. Let me drink, I pray 

46 thee. And she made haste, and let down her pitcher 
from her shoulder, and said, Drink and I will give 
thy camels drink also : so I drank, and she made the 

47 camels drink also. And I asked her, and said, 
Whose daughter art thou ? And she said, The 
daughter of Beth'u-el, Na'hor's son, whom Mil'cah 
bare unto him; and I put the ring upon her nose, 

48 and the bracelets upon her hands. And I bowed my 
head, and worshipped the Lord, and blessed the 
Lord, the God of my master A'bra-ham, which had 
led me in the right way to take my master's brother's 

49 daughter for his son. And now if ye will deal 
kindly and truly with my master, tell me : and if 
not, tell me; that I may turn to the right hand, or 

50 to the - ift. Then La'ban and Beth'u-el answered and 
said. The thing proceedeth from the Lord : we can- 

51 rn t speak unto thee bad or good. Behold, Re-bek'ah 
is before thee, take her, and go, and let her be thy 

52 master's son's wife, as the Lord hath spoken. And 
it came to pass, that, when A'bra-ham's servant heard 
their words, "he bowed himself down to the earth 

53 unto the Lord. And the servant brought forth 
jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, 
and gave them to Re-bek'ah ; he gave also to her 

54 brother and to her mother precious things. And 
they did eat and drink, he and the men that were 
with him, and tarried all nigl*^ : and they rose up in 
the morning, and he said. Send me away unto 

55 my master. And her brother and her mother 
said, Let the damsel abide with us a few days, 

56 at the least ten; after that she shall go. And 
he said unto them. Hinder mc not, seeing the 
Lord hath prospered my way; send me away 

57 that I may go to my master. And they said. 
We will call the damsel and inquire at her mouth. 

58 And they called Re-bek'ah, and said unto her, Wilt 
thou go with this man? And she said, I will go.

59 And they sent away E,e-bek'ah their sister, and "her 
nurse, and A'bra-ham's servant, and his men. 

60 And they blessed Re-bek'ah, and said unto her, Thou 
art our sister ; be thou "the mother of thousands of mill- 
ions, and "let thy seed possess the gate of those which 
hate them. 

61 ^And Re-bek'ah arose, and her damsels, and they rode 
upon the camels, and followed the man : and the servant 
took Re-bek'ah, and went his way. 

62 And I'saac came from the way of the "well La-hai'-roi ; 
for he dwelt in the south country. 

63 And I'saac went out ||'to meditate in the field at the 
eventide : and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, 
the camels were coming. 

64 And Re-bek'ah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw 
I'saac, 'she lighted off the camel. 

65 For she had said unto the servant. What man is this that 
walketh in the field to meet us ? And the servant had said. 
It is my master : therefore she took a veil,and covered herself. 

66 And the servant told I'saac all things that he had done. 

67 And I'saac brought her into his mother Sa'rah's tent, and 
took Re-bek'ah, and she became his wife ; and he loved her : 
and I'saac 'was comforted after his mother's death. 

CHAPTER XXV. 

Generations of Ishmael— Birth of Esau and Jacob — Esau's birthright. 

THEN again A'bra-ham took a wife, and her name toas 
Ke-tu'rah. 

2 And "she bare him Zim'ran, and Jok'shan, and Me'dan, 
and Mid'i-an,and Ish'bak, and Shu'ah. 

3 And Jok'shan begat She'ba, and De'dan. And the sons 
of De'dan were As-shu'rim, and Le-tu'shim, and-Le-um'raim. 

4 And the sons of Mid'i-an ; E'phah, and E'pher, and Ha'- 
noch, and A-bi'dah, and El-da'ah. All these were the children 
of Ke-tu'rah. 

5 ^And ''A'bra-ham gave all that he had unto I'.saac. 

6 But unto the sons of the concubines, which A'bra-ham 
had, A'bra-ham gave gifts, and ''sent them away from I'saac 
his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto ''the east country. 

7 And these are the days of the years of A'braham's life 
which he lived, a hundred threescore and fifteen years. 

8 Then A'bra-ham gave up the ghost, and ^died in a good 
old age, an old man, and full of years ; and -^was gathered 
to his people. 

9 And "his sons I'saac and Ish'ma-el buried him in the cave 
of Mach-pe'lah, in the field of E'phron the son of Zo'har the 
Hit'tite, which is before Mam're ; 

10 'The field which A'bra-ham purchased of the sons of 
Heth : 'there was A'bra-ham buried, and Sar'ah his wife. 

11 l[And it came to pass after the death of A'bra-ham, that 
God blessed his son I'saac ; and I'saac dwelt by the *well 
La-hai'-roi. 

12 T[Now these are the generations of Ish'ma-el, A'bra- 
ham's son, 'whom Ha'gar the E-gyp'tian, Sa'rah's handmaid, 
bare unto A'bra-ham : 

13 And "these are the names of the sons of Ish'ma-el, by 
their names, according to their generations : the firstborn of 
Ish'ma-eljNe-ba'joth; and Ke'dar,and Ad'be-el, and Mib'sam, 

14 And Mish'ma, and Du'mah, and Mas'sa, 

15 II Ha'dar, and Te'ma, Je'tur, Na'phish, and Ked'e-mah : 

16 These are the sons of Ish'ma-el, and these are their 
names, by their towns, and by their castles ; "twelve princes 
according to their nations. 

17 And these are the years of the life of Ish'ma-el, a 
hundred and thirty and seven years : and he "gave up the 
ghost and died, and was gathered unto his people. 

18 "And they dwelt from Hav'i-lah unto Shur, that is before 
E'gypt, as thou goest toward As-syr'i-a : and he fdied "in the 

ipresence of all his brethren. 



59 And they sent away Re-bek'ah their sister, and 
her nurse, and A'bra-ham's servant, and his men. 

60 And they blessed Re-bek'ah, and said unto her. Our 
sister, be thou the mother of thousands of ten thou- 
sands, and let thy seed possess the gate of those 

61 which hate them. And Re-bek'ah arose, and her 
damsels, and they rode upon the camels, and fol- 
lowed the man : and the servant took Re-bek'ah, and 

62 went his way. And I'saac came 'from the way of 
Be'er-la-hai'-roi ; for he dwelt in the land of the South. 

63 And I'saac went out to meditate in the field at the 
eventide : and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, 

64 behold, there were camels coming. And Re-bek'ah 
lifted up her eyes, and when she saw I'saac, she 

65 lighted off the camel. And she said unto the serv- 
ant, What man is this that walketh in the field to 
meet us ? And the servant said. It is my master : 

66 and she took her veil, and covered herself. And 
the servant told I'saac all the things that he had done. 

67 And I'saac brought her into his mother Sa'rah's tent, 
and took Re-bek'ah, and she became his wife ; and he 
loved her : and I'saac was comforted after his mother's 
death. 

'^O And A'bra-ham took another wife, and her name 

2 was Ke-tu'rah. And she bare him Zim'ran, and Jok'- 
shan, and Me'dan, and Mid'i-an, and Ish'bak, and 

3 Shu'ah. And Jok'shan begat She'ba, and De'dan. 
And the sons of De'dan were As-shu'rim, and Le=tu'- 

4 shim, and Le-um'mim. And the sons of Mid'i-an ; 
E'phah, and E'pher, and Ha'noch, and A-bi'da, and 
El-da'ah. All these were the children of Ke-tu'rah. 

5 And A'bra-ham gave all that he had unto I'saac. 

6 But unto the sons of the concubines, which A'bra-ham 
had, A'bra-ham gave gifts ; and he sent them away 
from I'saac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, 

7 unto the east country. And these are the days of 
the years of A'bra-ham's life which he lived, an hun- 

Sdred threescore and Mt&.n years. And A'bra-ham 
gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an 
old man, and full of years ; and was gathered to his 

9 people. And I'saac and Ish'ma-el his sons buried him 
in the cave of Mach-pe'lah, in the field of E'phron the 
son of Zo'har the Hit'tite, which is before Mam're ; 

10 the field which A'bra-ham pui-chased of the children 
of Heth : there was A'bra-ham buried, and Sa'rah his 

11 wife. And it came to pass after the death of A'bra- 
ham, that God blessed I'saac his son ; and I'saac 
dwelt by Be'er-la-hai'-roi. 

12 Now these are the generations of Ish'ma-el, A'bra- 
ham's son,whom Ha'gar the E-gyp'tian, Sa'rah's hand- 

13 maid, bare unto A'bra-ham : and these are the names of 
the sons of Ish'ma-el, by their names,according to their 
generations: the firstborn of Ish'ma-el, Ne-ba'ioth; 

14 and Ke'dar, and Ad'be-el, and Mib'sam, and Mish'ma, 
15and Du'mah, and Mas'sa : Ha'dad, and Te'ma, Je'tur, 

16 Na'phish, and Ked'e-mah : these are the sons of Ish'- 
ma-el, and these are their names, by their villages, 
and by their encampments ; twelve princes according 

17 to their nations. And these are the years of the life 
of Ish'ma-el, an hundred and thirty and seven years : 
and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered 

18 unto his people. And they dwelt from Hav'i-lah unto 
Shur that is before E'gypt, as thou goest toward As- 
syr'i-a : he ^abode 'in the presence of all his brethren.

19 ^And these are the generations of I'saac, A'bra-ham's 
son : ''A'bra-ham begat I'saac : 

20 And I'saac was forty years old when he took Re-bek'ah 
to wife,'the daughter of Beth'u-el the Syr'i-an of Pa'dan-a'ram, 
'the sister to La'ban the Syr'i-an. 

21 And I'saac entreated the Loed for his wife, because she 
toas barren: "and the Loed was entreated of him, and ""Re- 
bek'ah his wife conceived. 

22 And the children struggled together within her ; and 
she said, If it be so, why am I thus? ''And she went to 
inquire of the Loed. 

23 And the Lokd said unto her, "Two nations are in thy 
womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from 
thy bowels; and Hhe one people shall be stronger than the 
oiAcr people ; and "the elder shall serve the younger. 

24 ^And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, be- 
hold, there were twins in her womb. 

25 And the first came out red, ''all over like a hairy gar- 
ment ; and they called his name E'sau. 

26 And after that came his brother out, and "his hand took 
hold on E'sau's heel ; and his name was called Ja'cob : and 
I'saac was threescore years old when she bare them. 

27 And the boys grew : and E'sau was *a cunning hunter, 
a man of the field; and Ja'cob ^vas-^a plain man, 'dwelling 
in tents. 

28 And I'saac loved E'sau, because fhe did ''eat of his 
venison : 'Tjut Re-bek'ah loved Ja'cob. 

29 ^And Ja'cob sod pottage : and E'sau came from the 
field, and he was faint : 

30 And E'sau said to Ja'cob, Feed me, I pray thee, fwith 
that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his 
name called ||E'dora. 

31 And Ja'cob said. Sell me this day thy birthright. 

32 And E'sau said. Behold, I am fat the point to die : and 
what profit shall this birthright do to me? 

33 And Ja'cob said. Swear to me this day ; and he sware 
unto him : and *he sold his birthright unto Ja'cob. 

34 Then Ja'cob gave E'sau bread and pottage of lentiles; 
and "he diJ eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way : 
thus E'sau despised his bJrthright. 

CHAPTER XXVI. 

Isaac goeth to Gerar—Abimelech* s covenant with him at Beer-sheba. 

AND there was a famine in the land, besides "the first 
famine that was in the days of A'bra-ham. And I'saac 
went unto ''A'bim'e-lech king of the Phi-lis'tines unto Ge'rar. 

2 And the Loed appeared unto him, and said, Go not down 
into E'gypt; dwell in "the land which I shall tell thee of. 

3 ''Sojourn in this land, and *I will be with thee, and -^will 
bless thee ; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, "I will give all 
these countries, and I will perform Hhe oath which I sware 
unto A'bra-ham thy father ; 

4 And *I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of 
heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries ; ''and 
in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed : 

5 'Because that A'bra-ham obeyed my voice, and kept my 
charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws. 

6 51 And I'saac dwelt in Ge'rar. 

7 And the men of the place asked him of his wife ; and 
"he said. She is my sister: for "he feared to say, She is my 
wife ; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for 
Re-bek'ah ; because she "was fair to look upon. 

8 And it came to pass, when he had been there a long 
time, that A-bim'e-lech king of the Phi-lis'tines looked out 
at a window, and saw, and, behold, I'saac was sporting with 
Re-bek'ah his wife. 

9 And A-bim'e-lech called I'saac, and said. Behold of a 
surety she is thy wife : and how saidst thou. She is my sister? 
And I'saac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her, 



19 And these are the generations of I'saac, A'bra-ham's 

20 son: A'bra-ham begat I'saac: and I'saac was forty years 
old when he took Re-bek'ah, the daughter of Beth'u-el 
Hhe Syr'ian of Pad'dan-a'ram, the sister of La'ban the 

21 'Syr'ian, to be his wife. And I'saac intreated the 
Loed for his wife, because she was barren : and the 
Loed was intreated of him, and Re-bek'ah his wife 

22 conceived. And the children struggled together 
within her ; and she said. If it be so, ^wherefore do 

23 1 live ? And she went to inquire of the Loed. And 
the Loed said unto her. 
Two nations are in thy womb, 
And two peoples shall be separated even from thy 

bowels : 
And the one people shall be stronger than the other 

people ; 
And the elder shall serve the younger. 

24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, 

25 behold, there were twins in her womb. And the 
first came forth ^red, all over like an hairy garment ; 

26 and they called his name E'sau. And after that came 
forth his brother, and his hand had hold on E'sau's 
heel ; and his name was called ^Ja'cob : and I'saac 

27 was threescore years old when she bare them. And 
the boys grew: and E'sau was a cunning hunter, a 
man of the field : and Ja'cob was a 'plain man, dwell- 

28 ing in tents. Now I'saac loved E'sau, because he did 

29 eat of his venison : and Re-bek'ah loved Ja'cob. And 
Ja'cob sod pottage : and E'sau came in from the field, 

30 and he was faint : and E'sau said to Ja'cob, Feed me, 
I pi'ay thee, with "that same red pottage; for I am 

31 faint ; therefore was his name called ^E'dom. And 

32 Ja'cob said, Sell me 'this day thy birthright. And 
E'sau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and 

33 what profit shall the birthright do to me? And 
Ja'cob said. Swear to me 'this day; and he sware 
unto him : and he sold his birthright unto Ja'cob. 

34 And Ja'cob gave E'sau bread and pottage of lentils ; 
and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his 
way : so E'sau despised his birthright. 

^v And there was a famine in the land, beside the 
first famine that was in the days of A'bra-ham. And 
I'saac went unto A-bim'e-lech king of the Phi-lis'tines 

2 unto Ge'rar. And the Loed appeared unto him, and 
said. Go not down into E'gypt; dwell in the land 

3 which I shall tell thee of: sojourn in this land, and 
I will be with thee, and will bless thee ; for unto thee, 
and unto thy seed, I will give all these lands, and I 
will establish the oath which I sware unto A'bra-ham 

4 thy father ; and I will multiply thy seed as the stars 
of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these lands , 
and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth 'be 

5 blessed ; because that A'bra-ham obeyed my voice, 
and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, 

5 and my laws. And I'saac dwelt in Ge'rar: and the 
men of the place asked him of his wife ; and he said. 
She is my sister : for he feared to say. My wife ; lest, 
said he, the men of the place should kill me for 

8 Re-bek'ah : because she was fair to look upon. And 
it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, 
that A-bim'e-lech king of the Phi-lis'tines looked out 
at a window, and saw, and, behold, I'saac was sport- 

9 ing with Re-bek'ah his wife. And A-bim'e-lech called 
I'saac, and said. Behold, of a surety she is thy wife : 
and how saidst thou. She is my sister ? Ana I'saac 
said unto him. Because I said. Lest I die for her.

10 And A-bim'e-lech said, What is this thou hast done unto 
us ? one of the people might lightly have lain with thy wife, 
and "thou shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us. 

11 And A-bim'e-lech charged all his people, saying, He that 
'toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death. 

12 Then I'saac sowed in that land, and f received in the 
same year ""a hundredfold : and the LoED 'blessed him : 

13 And the man 'waxed great, and fwent forward, and 
grew until he became very great: 

14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of 
herds, and great store of || servants : and the Phi-lis'tines "en- 
vied him. 

15 For all the wells "which his father's servants had digged 
in the days of A'bra-ham his father, the Phi-lis'tines had 
stopped them, and filled them with earth. 

16 And A-bim'e-lech said unto I'saac, Go from us; for 
''thou art much mightier than we. 

17 ^And I'saac departed thence, and pitched his tent in 
the valley of Ge'rar, and dwelt there. 

18 And I'saac digged again the wells of water, which they 
had digged in the days of A'bra-ham his father; for the 
Phi-lis'tines had stopped them after the death of A'bra-ham : 
"and he called their names after the names by which his 
father had called them. 

19 And I'saac's servants digged in the valley, and found 
there a well of fspringing water. 

20 And the herdmen of Ge'rar 'did strive with I'saac's herd- 
men, saying, The water is ours : and he called the name of 
the well II E'sek; because they strove with him. 

21 And they digged another well, and strove for that also : 
and he called the name of it H Sit'nah. 

22 And he removed from thence, and digged another well; 
and for that they strove not : and he called the name of 
it II Re-ho'both ; and he said, For now the Lord hath made 
room for us, and we shall "be fruitful in the land. 

23 And he went up from thence to Be'er-she'ba. 

24 And the Lord appeared unto him the same night, and 
said, ''I am the God of A'bra-ham thy father: ""fear not, for ''I 
am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for 
my servant A'bra-ham's sake. 

25 And he "builded an altar there, and -^called upon the 
name of the Lord, and pitched his tent there : and there 
I'saac's servants digged a well. 

26 ^Then A-bim'e-lech went to him from Ge'rar, and 
A-huz'zath one of his friends, "and Phi'chol the chief cap- 
tain of his army. 

27 And I'saac said unto them. Wherefore come ye to me, 
seeing *ye hate me, and have "sent me away from you? 

28 And they said, fWe saw certainly that the Lord *was 
with thee : and we said. Let there be now an oath betwixt 
us, even betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant 
with thee ; 

29 fThat 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. 

30 "And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink. 

31 And they rose up betimes in the morning, and "sware 
one to another : and I'saac sent them away, and they departed 
from him in peace. 

32 And it came to pass the same day, that I'saac's servants 
came, and told him concerning the well which they had 
digged, and said unto him, We have found water. 

33 And he called it || She'bah : "therefore the name of the 
city is II Be'er-she'ba unto this day. 

34 ^"And E'sau was forty years old when he took to wife 
Ju'dith the daughter of Be-e'ri the Hit'tite, and Bash'e-math 
the daughter of E'lon the Hit'tite: 

35 Which'were fa grief of mind unto I'saac and to Re-bek'ah. 



10 And A-bim'e-lech 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 guilt- 

llinessuponus. And A-bim'e-lech charged all the peo- 
ple, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife 

12 shall surely be put to death. And I'saac sowed in that 
land, and found in the same year an hundredfold : 

13 and the Lord blessed him. And the man waxed 
great, and grew more and more until he became very 

14 great : and he had possessions of flocks, and posses- 
sions of herds, and a great household : and the Phi- 

151is'tines envied him. Now all the wells which his 
father's servants had digged in the days of A'bra-ham 
his father, the Phi-lis'tines had stopped them, and 

16 filled them with earth. And A-bim'e-lech said unto 
I'saac, Go from us ; for thou art much mightier than 

17 we. And I'saac departed thence, and encamped in 

18 the valley of Ge'rar, and dwelt there. And I'saac 
digged again the wells of water, which they had 
digged in the days of A'bra-ham his father; for the 
Phi-lis'tines had stopped them after the death of 
A'bra-ham : and he called their names after the names 

19 by which his father had called them. And I'saac's 
servants digged in the valley, and found there a well 

20 of 'springing water. And the herdmen of Ge'rar 
strove with I'saac's herdmen, saying. The water is 
ours: and he called the name of the well ^E'sek; 

21 because they contended with him. And they digged 
another well, and they strove for that also : and he 

22 called the name of it 'Sit'nah. And he removed from 
thence, and digged another well ; and for that they 
strove not : and he called the name of it *Re-ho'both ; 
and he said. For now the Lord hath made room for 

23 us, and we shall be fruitful in the land. And he 

24 went up from thence to Be'er-she'ba. And the Lord 
appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am 
the God of A'bra-ham thy father : fear not, for I am 
with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed 

25 for my servant A'bra-ham's sake. And he builded 
an altar there, and called upon the name of the 
Lord, and pitched his tent there : and there I'saac's 

26 servants digged a well. Then A-bim'e-lech went to 
him from Ge'rar, and A-huz'zath his friend,and Phi'col 

27 the captain of his host. And I'saac said unto them. 
Wherefore are ye come unto me, seeing ye hate me, 

28 and have sent me away from you? And they said. 
We saw plainly that the Lord was with thee: and 
we said. Let there now be an oath betwixt us, even 
betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant with 

29 thee ; that thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not 
touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing 
but good, and have sent thee away in peace : thou 

30 art now the blessed of the Lord. And he made 

31 them a feast, and they did eat and drink. And they 
rose up betimes in the morning, and sware one to 
another: and I'saac sent them away, and they de- 

32 parted from him in peace. And it came to pass the 
same day, that I'saac's servants came, and told him 
concerning the well which they had digged, and said 

33 unto him, We have found water. And he called it 
''Shi'bah: therefore the name of the city is Be'er- 
she'ba unto this day. 

34 And when E'sau was forty years old he took to 
wife Ju'dith the daughter of Be-e'ri the Hit'tite, and 

35 Bas'e-math the daughter of E'lon the Hit'tite; and they 
were a 'grief of mind unto I'saac and to Re-bek'ah.

CHAPTER XXVII. 

Isaac sendeth Esau /or venison— Jacob obiaineth the blessing. 

AND it came to pass, that when I'saac was old, and "his 
eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called E'sau 
his eldest son, and said unto him. My son : and he said 
unto him, Behold, here am I. 

2 And he said. Behold now, I am old, I 'know not the day 
of my death : 

3 "Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver 
and thy bow,and go out to the field,and ftake me some venison ; 

4 And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to 
me, that I may eat ; that my soul ''may bless thee before I die. 

5 And Re-bek'ah heard when I'saac spake to E'sau his son. 
And E'sau went to the field to hunt for venison, and to 
bring it. 

6 ^And Re-bek'ah spake unto Ja'cob her son, saying. Be- 
hold, I heard thy father speak unto E'sau thy brother, saying, 

7 Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I 
may eat, and bless thee before the Lord before my death. 

8 Now therefore, my son, 'obey my voice according to 
that which I command thee. 

9 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 : 

10 And thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, 
and that he "may bless thee before his death. 

11 And Ja'cob said to Re-bek'ah his mother. Behold, *E'sau 
my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man : 

12 My father peradventure will 'feel me, and I shall seem 
to him as a deceiver ; and I shall bring *a curse upon me, 
and not a blessing. 

13 And his mother said unto him, 'Upon me be thy curse, 
my son : only obey my voice, and go fetch me them. 

14 And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his 
mother : and his mother ""made savoury meat, such as his 
father loved. 

15 And Re-bek'ah took f "goodly raiment of her eldest son 
E'sau, which were with her in the house, and put them upon 
Ja'cob her younger son : 

16 And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon 
his hands, and upon the smooth of his neck : 

17 And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which 
she had prepared, into the hand of her son Ja'cob. 

18 ^And he came unto his father, and said. My father: 
and he said. Here am I ; who ai-t thou, my son ? 

19 And Ja'cob said unto his father,! am E'sau 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. 

20 And I'saac said unto his son. How is it that thou hast 
found it so quickly, my son ? And he said, Because the 
LoED thy God brought it fto me. 

21 And I'saac said unto Ja'cob, Come near, I pray thee, 
that I "may feel thee, my son, whether thou 6e my very son 
E'sau or not. 

22 And Ja'cob went near unto I'saac his father ; and he felt 
him, and said, The voice is Ja'cob's voice, but the hands are 
the hands of E'sau. 

23 And he discerned him not, because "his hands were 
hairy, as his brother E'sau's hands : so he blessed him. 

24 And he said. Art thou my very son E'sau? And he 
said, I am.. 

25 And he .said. Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my 
son's vension, ''that my soul may bless thee. And he 
brought it near to him, and he did eat : and he brought him 
wine, and he drank. 

26 And his father I'saac said unto him, Come near now, 
and kiss me, my son. 

27 And he came near, and kissed him : and he smelled 
the smell of his raiment, and blessed him, and .said, 



^' And it came to pass, that when I'saac was old, 
and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he 
called E'sau his elder son, and said unto him. My 

2 son : and he said unto him. Here am I. And he 
said. Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of 

3 my death. Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy 
weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the 

4 field, and take me venison ; and make me savoury 
meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may 

5 eat ; that my soul may bless thee before I die. And 
Re-bek'ah heard when I'saac spake to E'sau his son. 
And E'sau went to the field to hunt for venison, and 

6 to bring it. And Re-bek'ah spake unto Ja'cob her 
son, saying. Behold, I heard thy father speak unto 

7 E'sau thy brother, saying. Bring me venison, and 
make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless 

8 thee before the Lord before my death. Now there 
fore, my son, obey my voice according to that which 

9 1 command thee. Go now to the flock, and fetch 

me from thence two good kids of the goats ; and I 

will make them savoury meat for thy father, such 

10 as he loveth: and thou shalt bring it to thy father, 

that he may eat, so that he may bless thee before 

11 his death. And Ja'cob said to Re-bek'ah his mother, 
Behold, E'sau my brother is a hairy man, and I am 

12 a smooth man. My father peradventure will feel 
me, and I shall seem to him as a 'deceiver ; and I 
shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing. 

13 And his mother said unto him. Upon me be thy 
curse, my son : only obey my voice, and go fetch 

14 me them. And he went, and fetched, and brought 
them to his mother: and his mother made savoury 

15 meat such as his father loved. And Re-bek'ah took 
the goodly raiment of E'sau her elder son, which 
were with her in the house, and put them upon 

16 Ja'cob her younger son : and she put the skins of 
the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the 

17 smooth of his neck : and she gave the savoury meat 
and the bread, which she had prepared, into the 

18 hand of her son Ja'cob. And he came unto his 
father, and said. My father : and he said. Here am 

191; who art thou, my son ? And Ja'cob said unto 
his father, I am E'sau 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 

20 me. And I'saac said unto his son. How is it that 
thou hast found it so quickly, my son? And he 
said. Because the Lord thy God sent me good 

21 speed. And I'saac said unto Ja'cob, Come near, I 
pray thee, that I may feel thee, my son, whether 

22 thou be my very son E'sau or not. And Ja'cob 
went near unto I'saac his father; and he felt him, 
and said. The voice is Ja'cob's voice, but the hands 

23 are the hands of E'sau. And he discerned him not, 
because his hands were hairy, as his brother E'sau's 

24hands:' so he blessed him. And he said, Art thou 

25 my very son E'sau ? And he said, I am. And he said, 
bring it near to me, and I Avill eat of my son's veni- 
son, that my soul may bless thee. And he brought 
it near to him, and be did eat: and he brought 

26 him wine, and he drank. And his father I'saac said 
unto him. Come near now, and kiss me, my son. 

27 And he came near, and kissed him : and he smelled 
the smell of his raiment, and blessed him, and said.

See, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field which the 
Lord hath blessed : 

28 Therefore 'God give thee of "the dew of heaven, and 
"the fatness of the earth, and "'plenty of corn and wine : 

29 "Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee : 
be lord over thy brethren, and 'let thy mother's sons bow 
down to thee : "cursed be every one that curse th thee, and 
blessed be he that blesseth thee. 

30 ^And it came to pass, as soon as I'saac had made an 
end of blessing Ja'cob, and Ja'cob was yet scarce gone out 
from the presence of I'saac his father, that E'sau his brother 
came in from his hunting. 

31 And he also had made savoury meat, and brought 
it unto his father, and said unto his father. Let my father 
arise, and ''eat of his son's venison, that thy soul may 
bless me. 

32 And I'saac his father said unto him. Who art thou? 
And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn, E'sau. 

33 And I'saac ftrembled very exceedingly, and said, Who ? 
where is he that hath ftaken venison and brought t< me, 
and I have eaten of all before thou camest, and have blessed 
him ? yea, "and he shall be blessed. 

34 And when E'sau heard the words of his father, '''he cried 
with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his 
father. Bless me, even me also, O my father. 

35 And he said. Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath 
taken away thy blessing. 

36 And he said, 'Is not he rightly named || Ja'cob? 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? 

37 And I'saac answered and said unto E'sau, "Behold, I 
have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I 
given to him for servants; and ''with corn and wine have 
I II sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, 
my son? 

38 And E'sau said unto his father. Hast thou but one 
blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. 
And E'sau lifted up his voice, 'and wept. 

39 And I'saac his father answered and said unto him. 
Behold, ''thy dwelling shall be || the fatness of the earth, 
and of the dew of heaven from above : 

40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and 'shalt 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. 

41 T[And E'sau "hated Ja'cob because of the blessing where- 
with his father blessed him : and E'sau said in his heart, 
"The days of mourning for my father are at hand ; "then 
will I slay my brother Ja'cob. 

42 And these words of E'sau her elder son were told to 
Re-bek'ah : and she sent and called Ja'cob her younger son, 
and said unto him. Behold, thy brother E'sau, as touching 
thee, doth 'comfort himself, purposing to kill thee. 

43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice ; and arise, flee 
thou to La'ban my brother 'to Ha' ran ; 

44 And tarry with him a few days, until thy brother's fury 
turn away ; 

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 deprived also 
of you both in one day ? 

46 And Re-bek'ah said to I'saac, 'I am weary of my life 
because of the daughters of Heth : 'if Ja'cob take a wife of 
the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the 
daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me ? 



See, the smell of my son 

Is as the smell of a field which the Lord hath blessed : 

28 And God give thee of the dew of heaven, 
And of the fatness of the earth, 

And plenty of corn and wine : 

29 Let peoples serve thee. 

And nations bow down to thee : 

Be lord over thy brethren. 

And let thy mother's sons bow down to thee : 

Cursed be every one that curseth thee. 

And blessed be every one that blesseth thee. 

30 And it came to pass, as soon as I'saac had made an 
end of blessing Ja'cob, and Ja'cob was yet scarce 
gone out from the presence of I'saac his father, that 

31 E'sau his brother came in from his hunting. And 
he also made savoury meat, and brought it unto his 
father; and he said unto his father. Let my father 
arise, and eat of his son's venison, that thy soul 

32 may bless me. And I'saac his father said unto 
him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, 

33 thy firstborn, E'sau. And I'saac trembled very ex- 
ceedingly, and said. Who then is he that hath 
taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten 
of all before thou camest, and have blessed him? 

34 yea, and he shall be blessed. When E'sau heard 
the words of his father, he cried with an exceeding 
great and bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless 

35 me, even me also, O my father. And he skid. Thy 
brother came with guile, and hath taken away thy 

36 blessing. And he said. Is not he rightly named 
'Ja'cob ? 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, Ha.st 

37 thou not reserved a blessing for me? And I'saac 
answered and said unto E'sau, Behold, I have made 
him thy lord, and all his brethren have 1 given to him 
for servants ; and with corn and wine have I sustained 
him : and what then shall I do for thee, my son ? 

38 And E'sau said unto his father. Hast thou but one 
blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my 
father. And E'sau lifted up his voice, and wept. 

39 And I'saac his father answered and said unto him. 

Behold, ^of the fatness of the earth shall be thy 

dwelling. 
And ^of the dew of heaven from above ; 

40 ^nd by thy sword shalt thou live, and thou shalt 

serve thy brother; 
And it shall come to pass when thou shalt break loose. 
That thou shalt shake his yoke from off thy neck. 

41 And E'sau hated Ja'cob because of the blessing 
wherewith his father blessed him ; and E'sau said 
in his heart. The days of mourning for my father 
are at hand; then will I slay my brother Ja'cob. 

42 And the words of E'sau her elder son were told to 
Re-bek'ah; and she sent and called Ja'cob her 
younger son, and said unto him. Behold, thy 
brother E'sau, as touching thee, doth comfort him- 

43 self, purposing to kill thee. Now therefore, my 
son, obey my voice; and arise, flee thou to La'ban 

44 my brother to Ha' ran ; and tarry with him a few 

45 days, until thy brother's fury turn away ; 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 be- 
reaved of you both in one day ? 

46 And Re-bek'ah said to I'saac, I am weary of my life 
because of the daughters of Heth: if Ja'cob takeawife 
of the daughters of Heth, such as these, of the daugh- 
ters of the land, what good shall my life do me?

CHAPTER XXVIII. 

Vision of Jacob's ladder — Stone of Beth-el—Jacob's vow. 

AND I'saac called Ja'cob, and "blessed him, and charged 
him, and said unto him, ''Thou shalt not take a wife of 
the daughters of Ca'naan. 

2 "Arise, go to ''Pa'dan-a'ram, to the house of 'Beth'u-el thy 
mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the 
daughters of ■''La'ban thy mother's brother. 

3 "And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruit- 
ful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be fa multitude 
of people; 

4 And give thee *the blessing of A'bra-ham, to thee, and 
to thy seed with thee ; that thou mayest inherit the 
land t'wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto 
A'bra-ham. 

5 And I'saac sent away Ja'cob : and he went to Pa'dan-a'ram 
unto La'ban, son of Beth'u-el the Syi-'i-an, the brother of 
Re-bek'ah, Ja'cob's and E'sau's mother. 

6 ^When E'sau saw that I'saac had blessed Ja'cob, and 
sent him away to Pa'dan-a'ram, to take him a wife from 
thence ; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, 
saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of 
Ca'naan ; 

7 And that Ja'cob obeyed his father and his mother, and 
was gone to Pa'dan-a'ram; 

8 And E'sau seeing *that the daughters of Ca'naan f pleased 
not I'saac his father ; 

9 Then went E'sau unto Ish'ma-el, and took unto the wives 
which he had 'Ma'ha-lath the daughter of Ish'ma-el A'bra- 
ham's son, "'the sister of Ne-ba'joth, to be his wife. 

10 ^And Ja'cob "went out from Be'er-she'ba, and went 
toward "Ha'ran. 

11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there 
all night, because the sun was set ; and he took of the 
stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay 
down in that place to sleep. 

12 And he "dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the 
earth, and the top of it reached to heaven : and behold 'the 
angels of God ascending and descending on it. 

13 'And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, 'I am 
the Lord God of A'bra-ham thy father, and the God of I'saac : 
the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to 
thy seed; 

14 And "thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth : and 
thou shalt fspread abroad "to the west, and to the east, and 
to the north, and to the south : and in thee and *ii. thy seed 
shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 

15 And, behold, "I am with thee, and will 'keep thee in all 
places whither thou goest, and will "bring thee again into 
this land ; for 'I will not leave thee, "until I have done that 
which I have spoken to thee of. 

16 ^And Ja'cob awaked out of his sleep, and he said. 
Surely the Loed is in ''this place ; and I knew it not. 

17 And he was afraid, and said. How dreadful is this place ! 
this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate 
of heaven. 

18 And Ja'cob rose up early in the morning, and took the 
stone that he had put for his pillows, and 'set it up for a 
pillar, ■''and poured oil upon the top of it. 

' 19 And he called the name of "that place ||Beth'-el: but 
the name of that city was called Luz at the first. 

20 ''And Ja'cob vowed a vow, saying. If 'God will be with 
me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give 
me *bread to eat, and raiment to put on, 

21 So that 'I come again to my father's house in peace; 
"then shall the Lord be my God : 

22 And this stone, Avhich I have set for a pillar, "shall be 
God's house : "and of all that thou shalt give me I will 
surely give the tenth unto thee. 



«0 Andl'saac called Ja'cob,and blessed hlm,and charged 
him, and said unto him. Thou shalt not take a wife of 

2 the daughters of Ca'naan. Arise, go to Pad'dan- 
a'ram, to the house of Beth'u-el thy mother's father ; 
and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of 

3 La'ban thy mother's brother. And 'God Almighty bless 
thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that 

4 thou mayest be a company of peopJes ; and give thee 
the blessing of A'bra-ham, to thee, and to thy seed 
with thee ; that thou mayest inherit the land of thy so- 

5 journings,which God gave untoA'bra-ham. And I'saac 
sent away Ja'cob : and he went to Pad'dan-a'ram unto 
La'ban, son of Beth'u-el the ^Syr'i-an, the brother of 

6 Re-bek'ah, Ja'col ' j and E'sau's mother. Now E'sau 
saw that I'saac had blessed Ja'cob and sent him 
away to Pad'dan-a'ram, to take him a wife from 
thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a 
charge, saying. Thou shalt not take a wife of the 

7 daughters of Ca'naan ; and that Ja'cob obeyed his 
father and his mother, and was gone to Pad'dan 

8 a'ram : and E'sau saw that the daughters of Ca'naan 
9 pleased not I'saac his father; and E'sau went unto 

Ish'ma-el, and took unto the wives which he had 
Ma'ha-lath the daughter of Ish'ma-el A'bra-ham's 
son, the sister of Ne-ba'ioth, to be his wife. 

10 And Ja'cob went out from Be'er-she'ba, and went 

11 toward Ha' ran. And he lighted upon % certain 
place, and tarried there all night, because the sun 
was set ; and he took one of the stones of the place, 
and put it under his head, and lay down in that 

1 2 place to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold a lad 
der set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to 
heaven : and behold the angels of God ascending 

13 and descending on it. And, behold, the Lord stood 
^above it, and said, I am the Lord, the God of A'bra- 
ham thy father, and the God of I'saac : the land 
whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy 

14 seed ; and thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, 
and thou shalt 'spread abroad to the west, and to 
the east, and to the north, and to the south : and in 
thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth 

15 be blessed. And, behold, I am with thee, and will 
keep thee whithersoever thou goest, and will bring 
thee again into this land ; for I will not leave thee, 
until I have done that which I have spoken to thee 

16 of. And Ja'cob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, 
Surely the Lord is in this place ; and I knew it not. 

17 And he was afraid, and said. How dreadful is this 
place ! this is none other but the house of God, and 

18 this is the gate of heaven. And Ja'cob rose up early 
in the morning, and took the stone that he had put 
under his head, and set it up for a pillar, and poured 

19 oil upon the top of it. And he called the name of 
that place 'Beth'el : but the name of the city was 

20 Luz at the first. And Ja'cob vowed a vow, saying, 
If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way 
that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment 

21 to put on, so that I come again to my father's house 

22 in peace, 'then shall the Lord be my God, and this 
stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God's 
house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will 
surely give the tenth unto thee.

THEN Ja'cob fwent on his journey, "and came into the 
land of the fpeople of the east. 

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

3 And thither were all the flocks gathered : and they rolled 
the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the sheep, and 
put the stone again upon the well's mouth in his place. 

4 And Ja'cob said unto them, My brethren, whence be ye? 
And they said, of Ha'ran are we. 

5 And he said unto them, Know ye La'ban the son of 
Na'hor ? And they said. We know him. 

6 And he said unto them, ■\^Is he well ? And they said. 
He is well : and, behold, Ra'chel his daughter cometh with 
the sheep. 

7 And he said, Lo, ^U is yet high day, neither is it time 
that the cattle should be gathered together: water ye the 
sheep, and go and feed them. 

8 And they said, We can not, until all the flocks be gathered 
together, and till they roll the stone from the well's mouth ; 
then we water the sheep. 

9 ^And while he yet spake with them, "Ra'chel came with 
her father's sheep : for she kept them. 

10 And it came to pass, when Ja'cob saw Ra'chel the 
daughter of La'ban his mother's brother, and the sheep of 
La'ban his mother's brother, that Ja'cob went near, and 
■'rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the 
flock of La'ban his mother's brother. 

11 And Ja'cob "kissed Ra'chel, and lifted up his voice, and 
wept. 

12 And Ja'cob told Ra'chel that he was ■''her father's 
brother, and that he was Re-bek'ah's son : "and she ran and 
told her father. 

13 And it came to pass, when La'ban heard the ftidings 
of Ja'cob 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 La'ban all these things. 

14 And La'ban said to him, "Surely thou art my bone and 
my flesh. And he abode with him fthe space of a month. 

15 ^And La'ban said unto Ja'cob, Because thou art my 
brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell 
me, what shall thy wages be f 

16 And La'ban had two daughters: the name of the elder 
was Le'ah, and the name of the younger was Ra'chel. 

17 Le'ah was tender eyed; but Ra'chel was beautiful and 
well favoured. 

18 And Ja'cob loved Ra'chel; and said, *I will serve thee 
seven years for Ra'chel thy younger daughter. 

19 And La'ban said. It is better that I give her to thee, than 
that I should give her to another man : abide with me. 

20 And Ja'cob 'served seven years for Ra'chel; and they 
seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her. 

21 ^And Ja'cob said unto La'ban, Give me my wife, for my 
days are fulfilled, that I may ""go in unto her. 

22 And La'ban gathered together all the men of the place, 
and "made a feast. 

23 And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Le'ah 
his daughter,and brought her to him ; and he went in unto her. 

24 And La'ban gave unto his daughter Le'ah Zil'pah his 
maid for a handmaid. 

25 And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was 
Le'ah : and he said to La'ban, What is this thou hast done 
unto me? did not I serve with thee for Ra'chel? wherefore 
then hast thou beguiled me? 

26 And La'ban said. It must not be so done in our country, 
fto give the younger before the firstborn. 



^y Then Ja'cob 'went on his journey, and came to the 

2 land of the children of the east. And he looked, 
and behold a well in the field, and, lo, three flocks 
of sheep lying there by it ; for out of that well they 
watered the flocks : and the stone upon the well's 

3 mouth was great. And thither were all the flocks 
gathered : and they rolled the stone from the well's 
mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone 

4 again upon the well's mouth in its place. And 
Ja'cob said unto them. My brethren, whence be ye? 

5 And they said. Of Ha'ran are we. And he said unto 
them. Know ye La'ban the son of Na'hor? And 

6 they said. We know him. And he said unto them, 
Is it well with him ? And they said. It is well : and, 
behold, Ra'chel his daughter cometh with the sheep. 

7 And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it 
time that the cattle should be gathered together: 

8 water ye the sheep, and go and feed them. And 
they said. We can not, until all the flocks be gathered 
together, and they roll the stone from the well's 

9 mouth; then we water the sheep. While he yet 
spake with them, Ra'chel came with her father's 
10 sheep; for she kept them. And it came to pass, 
when Ja'cob saw Ra'chel the daughter of La'ban his 
mother's brother, and the sheep of La'ban his 
mother's brother, that Ja'cob went near, and rolled 
the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the 

11 flock of La'ban his mother's brother. And Ja'cob 
kissed Ra'chel, and lifted up his voice, and wept. 

12 And Ja'cob told Ra'chel that he was her father's 
brother, and that he was Re-bek'ah's son : and she 

13 ran and told her father. And it came to pass, when 
La'ban heard the tidings of Ja'cob 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 

14 La'ban all these things. And La'ban said to him, 
Surely thou art my bone and my flesh. And he 

15 abode with him the space of a month. And La'ban 
said unto Ja'cob, Because thou art my brother, 
shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell 

16 me, what shall thy wages be? And La'ban had two 
daughters : the name of the elder was Le'ah, and the 

17 name of the younger was Ra'chel. And Le'ah's eyes 
were tender; but Ra'chel was beautiful and well 

18 favoured. And Ja'cob loved Ra'chel ; and he said, 
I will serve thee seven years for Ra'chel, thy younger 

19 daughter. And La'ban said. It is better that I give 
her to thee, than that I should give her to another 

20 man : abide with me. And Ja'cob served seven 
years for Ra'chel ; and they seemed unto him but a 

21 few days, for the love he had to her. And Ja'cob 
said unto La'ban, Give me my wife, for my days are 

22 fulfilled, that I may go in unto her. And La'ban 
gathered together all the men of the place, and made 

23 a feast. And it came to pass in the evening, that he 
took Le'ah his daughter, and brought her to him ; 

24 and he went in unto her. And La'ban gave Zil'pah 
his handmaid unto his daughter Le'ah for an hand- 

25 maid. And it came to pass in the morning that, 
behold, it was Le'ah : and he said to La'ban, What is 
this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with 
thee for Ra'chel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled 

26 me? And La'ban said, It is not so done in our 
place, to give the younger before the firstborn.

2T "Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the 
service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years. 

28 And Ja'cob did so, and fulfilled her week : and he gave 
him Ra'chel his daughter to wife also. 

29 And La'ban gave to Ea'chel his daughter Bil'hah his 
handmaid to be her maid. 

30 And he went in also unto Ra'chel, and he "loved also 
Ra'chel more than Le'ah, and served with him *yet se\dn 
other years. 

31 ^And when the Lord 'saw that Le'ah was hated, he 
'opened her womb ; but Ra'chel was barren. 

32 And Le'ah conceived, and bare a son ; and she called his 
name || Reu'ben : for she said. Surely the Loed hath 'looked 
upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love m'^. 

33 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, 
I Because the Loed hath heard that I was hated, he hath there- 
I fore given me this son also : and she called his name || Sim'e-on. 

34 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said. 
Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because 
I have borne him three sons : therefore was his name called 
HLe'vi. 

( 35 And she conceived again, and bare a son ; and she said 
Now will I praise the LoED : therefore she called his name 
"II Ju'dah ; and fleft bearing. 

CHAPTER XXX. 

Rachel's grief for her barrenness— Leah beareth Gad— Rachel beareth Joseph. 

AND when Ra'chel saw that "she bare Ja'cob no children, 
Ra'chel 'envied her sister ; and said unto Ja'cob, Give 
me children, "or else I die. 

2 And Ja'cob's anger was kindled against Ra'chel : and he 
said, ^Am I in God's stead, who hath withheld from thee the 
fruit of the womb ? 

3 And she said. Behold 'my maid Bil'hah, <ro in unto her;i 
•''and she shall bear upon my knees, "that I may also f have ' 
children by her. 

4 And she gave him Bil'hah her handmaid Ho wife : and 
Ja'cob went in unto her. 

5 And Bil'hah conceived, and bare Ja'cob a son. 

6 And Ra'chel said, God hath fudged me, and hath also 
heard my voice, and hath given me a son : therefore called 
she his name || Dan. 

7 And Bil'hah Ra'chel's maid conceived again, and bare 
Ja'cob a second son. 

8 And Ra'chel said. With fgreat wrestlings have I wrestled 
with my sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his 
name ||'Naph'ta-li. 

9 When Le'ah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zil'- 
pah her maid and 'gave her Ja'cob to wife. 

10 And Zil'pah Le'ah's maid bare Ja'cob a son. 

11 And Le'ah said, A troop cometh: and ghe called his 
name, II Gad. 

12 And Zil'pah Le'ah's maid bare Ja'cob a second son. 

13 And Le'ah said, fHappy am I, for the daughters ""will 
call me blessed: and she called his name || Ash'er. 

14 ^And Reu'ben went in the days of wheat harvest, and 
found mandrakes in the field, and brought them unto his 
mother Le'ah. Then Rachel said to Le'ah, "Give me, I pray 
thee, of thy son's mandrakes. 

15 And she said unto her, °Is it a small matter that thou 
hast taken my husband? and wouldest thou take away my 
son's mandrakes also? And Ra'chel said. Therefore he 
shall lie with thee to-night for thy son's mandrakes. 

16 And Ja'cob came out of the field in the evening, and 
Le'ah went out to meet him, and said, Thou must come in 
unto me : for surely I have hired thee with my son's man- 
drakes. And he lay with her that night. 

17 And God hearkened unto Le'ah, and she conceived, and 
bare Ja'cob the fifth son. 



27 Fulfil the week of this one, and we will give thee the 
other also for the service which thou shalt serve 

28 with me yet seven other years. And Ja'cob did so, 
and fulfilled her week : and he gave him Ra'chel his 

29 daughter to wife. And La'ban gave to Ra'chel his 
daughter Bil'hah his handmaid to be her handmaid. 

30 And he went in also unto Ra'chel, and he loved 
also Ra'chel more than Le'ah, and served with him 
yet seven other years. 

31 And the Lord saw that Le'ah was hated, and he 
32 opened her womb: but Ra'chel was barren. And 

Le'ah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his 
name Reu'ben : for she said, Because the Lord 'hath 
looked upon my affliction; for now my husband 

33 will love me. And she conceived again, and bare 
a son ; and said, Because the Loed ^hath heard that 
I am hated, he hath therefore given me this son 

34 also: and she called his name ^Sim'e-on. And she 
conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now 
this time will my husband be ^joined unto me, be- 
cause I have borne him three sons: therefore was 

35 his name called Le'vi. And she conceived again, 
and bare a son : and she said. This time will I 

. "praise the Lord: therefore she called his name 
^Ju'dah; and she left bearing. 

Ok) And when Ra'chel saw that she bare Ja'cob no 
children, Ra'chel envied her sister; and she said 

2 unto Ja'cob, Give me children, or else I die. And 
Ja'cob's anger was kindled against Ra'chel: and he 
said. Am I in God's stead, who hath withheld from 

3 thee the fruit of the womb ? And she said. Behold 
my maid Bil'hah, go in unto her ; that she may bear 
upon my knees, and I also may 'obtain children by 

4 her. And she gave him Bil'hah her handmaid to 

5 wife : and Ja'cob went in unto her. And Bil'hah 

6 conceived, and bare Ja'cob a son. And Ra'chel said, 
God hath ^judged me, and hath also heard my voice, 
and hath given me a son : therefore called she his 

7 name Dan. And Bil'hah Ra'chel's handmaid con- 
Sceived again, and bare Ja'cob a second son. And 

Ra'chel said. With ^mighty wrestlings have I 

'"wrestled with my sister, and have prevailed : 

9 and she called his name Naph'ta-li. When Le'ah 

saw that she had left bearing, she took Zil'pah 

10 her handmaid, and gave her to Ja'cob to wife. And 

11 Zil'pah Le'ah's handmaid bare Ja'cob a son. And 
Le'ah said, "Fortunate ! and she called his name 

12'^Gad. And Zil'pah Le'ah's handmaid bare Ja'cob a 

13 second son. And Le'ah said, '^Happy am I ! for the 
daughters will "call me happy : and she called his 

14 name Ash'er. And Reu'ben went in the days of 
wheat harvest, and found "mandrakes in the field, 
and brought them unto his mother Le'ah. Then 
Ra'chel said to Le'ah, Give me, I pray thee, of thy 

15 son's mandrakes. And she said unto her, Is it a 
small matter that thou hast taken away my hus- 
band? and wouldest thou take away my son's 
mandrakes also? And Ra'chel said, Therefore he 
shall lie with thee to-night for thy son's man- 

16 drakes. And Ja'cob came from the field in the 
evening, and Le'ah went out to meet him, and said. 
Thou must come in unto me: for I have surely 
hired thee with my son's mandrakes. And he lay 

17 with her that night. And God hearkened unto 
Le'ah, and she conceived, and bare Ja'cob a fifth son.

18 And Le'ah said, God hath given me my hire, because I 
have given my maiden to my husband : aud she called his 
name || Is'sa-char, 

19 And Le'ah conceived again, and bare Ja'cob the sixth son. 

20 And Le'ah said, God hath endued me with a good 
dowry ; now will my husband dwell with me, because I have 
borne Lim six sons : and she called his name ||''Zeb'u-lun. 

21 And afterwards she bare a daughter, and called her 
name ||Di'nah. 

22 ^And God 'remembered Ra'chel, and God hearkened 
to her, and ""opened her womb. 

23 And she conceived, and bare a son ; and said, God hath 
taken away 'my reproach : 

24 And she called his name || Jo'seph ; and said, 'The Lord 
shall add to me another son. 

25 SI And it came to pass, when Ra'chel had borne Jo'seph, 
that Ja'cob said unto La'ban, "Send me away, that I may go 
unto "'mine own jilace, and to my country. 

26 Give me my wives and my cliildren, "for whom I have 
served thee, and let me go : for thou knowest my service 
which I have done thee. 

27 And La'ban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found 
favour in thine eyes, tarry : for '1 have learned by experience 
that the Lord hath blessed me "for thy sake. 

28 And he said, 'Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it. 

29 And he said unto him, ''Thou knowest how I have 
served thee, and how thy cattle was with me. 

30 For it was little Avhich thou hadst before I came, and 
it is now fincreased unto a multitude ; and the Lord hath 
blessed thee fsince my coming : and now, when shall I 
''provide for mine own house also? 

31 And he said. What shall I give thee ? And Ja'cob said. 
Thou shalt not give me anything : if thou wilt do this 
thing for me, I will again feed and keep thy flock. 

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 : and 'of such shall be my hire. 

33 So shall my -^righteousness answer for me fin time 
to come, when it shall come for my hire before thy face : 
every one that is not speckled aud spotted among the goats, 
and brown among the sheep, that shall be counted stolen 
with me. 

34 And La'ban said. Behold, I would it might be according 
to thy word. 

35 And he removed that day the he-goats that were ring- 
streaked and spotted, and all the she-goats that were speckled 
and spotted, and every one that had some white in it, and all 
the brown among the sheep, and gave them into the hand 
of his sons. 

36 And he set three days' journey betwixt himself and 
Ja'cob : and Ja'cob fed the rest of La'ban's flocks. 

37 ^ And "Ja'cob took him rods of green poplar, and of the 
hazel and chestnut tree; and pilled white streaks in them, 
and made the white appear which was in the rods. 

38 And he set the rods which he had pilled before the 
flocks in the gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks 
came to drink, that they should conceive when they came 
to drink. 

39 And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought 
forth cattle ringstreaked, speckled, and spotted. 

40 And Ja'cob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of 
the flocks toward the ringstreaked, and all the brown in the 
flock of La'ban ; and he put his own flocks by themselves, 
and put them not unto La'ban's cattle. 

41 And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle 
did conceive, that Ja'cob laid the rods before the eyes 
of the cattle in the gutters, that they might conceive among 
the rods., 



18 And Le'ah said, God hath given me my •hire, be- 
cause I gave my handmaid to my husband : and 

19 she called his name Is'sa-char. And Le'ah conceived 

20 again, and bare a sixth son to Ja'cob. And Le'ah said, 
God hath endowed me with a good dowry ; now will 
my husband ^dwell with me, because I have borne 
him six ijns: and she called his name Zeb'u-lun. 

21 And afterwards she bare a daughter, and called her 

22 name Di'naVi. And God remembered Ra'chel, and 
God hearkened to her, and opened her womb 

23 And sliQ'! conceived, and bare a son : and said, 
24 God hath taken away my reproach: and she 

called his name Jo'seph, saying, the Lord 'add 
to me ar other son. 

25 And it camo to pass, when Ra'chel had borne 
Jo'seph, tliat Ja'cob snid unto La'ban, Send me away, 
that I may go unio mine own place, and to my 

26 country. Give me my wives and my children for 
whom I have served thee, and let me go : for thou 
knowest my service wherewith I have served thee. 

27 And La'ban said unto him, If now I have found 
favour in thine eyes, tarry: for I have divined that 

28 the Lord hath blessed me for thy sake. And he 
said, Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it. 

29 And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have 
served thee, and how thy cattle hath fared with me. 

30 For it was little which thou hadst before I came, 
and it hath Mucreased unto a multitude ; and the 
Lord hath blessed thee 'whithersoever I turned : 
and now when shall I provide for mine own house 

31 also? And he said. What shall I give thee? And 
Ja'cob said. Thou shalt not give me aught : if thou 
wilt do this thing for me, I will again feed thy flock 

32 and keep it. I will pass through all thy flock to- 
day, removing from thence every speckled and 
spotted one, and every black one among the sheep, 
and the spotted and speckled among the goats: 

33 and of such shall be my hire. So shall my right- 
eousness answer for me hereafter, when thou shalt 
come concerning my hire that is before thee : every 
one that is not speclded and spotted among the 
goats, and black among the sheep, that if found 

34 with me shall be counted stolen. And La'ban said, 
Bohold, I would it might be according to thy word. 

35 And he removed that day the he-goats that were 
ringstraked and spotted, and all the she-goats that 
were speckled and spotted, every one that had white 
in it, and all the black ones among the sheep, and 

36 gave them into the hand of his sons ; and he set 
three days' journey betwixt himself and Ja'cob : 

37 and Ja'cob fed the rest of La'ban's flocks. And 
Ja'cob took him rods of fresh 'poplar, and of the 
almond and of the plane tree; and peeled white 
strakes in them, and made the white appear which 

38 was in the rods. And he set the rods which he 
had peeled over against the flocks in the gutters 
in the watering troughs where the flocks came to 
drink ; and tney conceived when they came to drink. 

39 And the flocks conceived before the rods, and 
the flocks brought forth ringstraked, speckled, and 

40 spotted. And Ja'cob separated the lambs, and set 
the faces of the flocks toward the ringstraked and 
all the black in the flock of La'ban ; and he put 
his own droves apart, and put them not unto La'- 

41 ban's flock. And it came to pass, whensoever the 
stronger of the flock did conceive, that Ja'cob 
laid the rods before the eyes of the flock in the 
gutters, that they might conceive among the rods;

42 But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in : so 
the feebler were La'ban's, and the stronger Ja'cob's. 

43 And the man ''increased exceedingly ,and 'had much cattle, 
and maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses. 

CHAPTER XXXI. 

Jacobus complaint of Laban — Covenant of Laban and Jacob at GaUed. 

AND he heard the words of La'ban's sons, saying, Ja'cob 
hath taken away all that was our father's ; and of that 
which was our father's hath he gotten all this "glory. 

2 And Ja'cob beheld ''the countenance of La'ban, and, be- 
hold, it was not ''toward him fas before. 

3 And the Lord said unto Ja'cob, ''Return unto the land of 
thy fathers, and to thy kindred ; and I will be with thee. 

4 And Ja'cob sent and called Ra'chel and Le'ah to the field 
unto his flock, 

5 And said unto them, "I see your father's countenance, 
that it is not toward me as before ; but the God of my father 
•^hath been with me. 

6 And 'ye know that with all my power I have served 
your father. 

7 And your father hath deceived me, and "changed my 
wages 'ten times ; but God ^suffered him not to hurt me. 

8 If he said thus, 'The speckled shall be thy wages ; then 
all the cattle bare speckled : and if he said thus, The ring- 
streaked shall be thy hire ; then bare all the cattle ringstreaked. 

9 Thus God hath "taken away the cattle of your father, 
and given them, to me. 

10 And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, 
that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, 
the II rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstreaked, 
speckled, and grizzled. 

11 And "the angel of God spake unto me in a dream, saying, 
Ja'cob : And I said. Here am I. 

12 And he said. Lift up now thine eyes, and see, all the 
rams which leap upon the cattle are ringstreaked, speckled, 
and grizzled : for "I have seen all that La'ban doeth unto thee. 

13 1 am the God of Beth'-el,''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. 

14 And Ra'chel and Le'ah answered and said unto him, ^Is 
there yet any portion or inheritance for us in our father's house ? 

15 Are we not counted of him strangers? for 'he hath sold 
us, and hath quite devoured also our money. 

16 For all the riches which God hath taken from our father, 
that is ours, and our children's : now then, whatsoever God 
hath said unto thee, do. 

17 ^Then Ja'cob rose up, and set his sons and his wives 
upon camels ; 

18 And he carried away all his cattle, and all his goods which 
he had gotten, the cattle of his getting, which he had gotten in 
Pa'dan-a'ram,for to go tol'saac his father in the land ofCa'naan. 

19 And La'ban went to shear his sheep: and Ra'chel had 
stolen the f'iniages that were her father's. 

20 And Ja'cob stole away funawares to La'ban the Syr'i-an, 
in that he told him not that he fled. 

21 So he fled with all that he had ; and he rose up, and 
passed over the river,and"set his face toward the mountGil'e-ad. 

22 And it was told La'ban on the third day, that Ja'cob 
was fled. 

23 And he took "'his brethren with him, and pursued after 
him seven days' journey ; and they overtook him in the 
mount Gil'e-ad. 

24 And God "came to La'ban the Syr'i-an in a dream by 
night, and said unto him. Take heed that thou ''speak not 
to Ja'cob feither good or bad. 

25 ^Then La'ban overtook Ja'cob. Now Ja'cob had pitched 
his tent in the mount : and La'ban with his brethren pitched 
in the mount of Gil'e-ad. 

26 And La'ban said to Ja'cob, What hast thou done, that 



42 but when the flock were feeble, he put them not 
in : so the feebler were La'ban's, and the stronger 

43 Ja'cob's. And the man increased exceedingly, and 
had large flocks, and maidservants and menservants, 
and cam^s and asses. 

04- And he heard the words of La'ban's sons, saying, 
Ja'cob hath taken away all that was our father's; 
and of that which was our father's hath he gotten 

2 all this 'glory. And Ja'cob beheld the countenance 
of La'ban, and, behold, it was not toward him as 

3 befo retime. And the Lord said unto Ja'cob, Return 
unto the land of thy fathers, and to thy kindred ; 

4 and I will be with thee. And Ja'cob sent and called 

5 Ra'chel and Le'ah to the field unto his flock, and 
said unto them, I see your father's countenance, 
that it is not toward me as beforetime ; but the God 

6 of my father hath been with me. And ye know 
that with all my power I have served your father. 

-7 And your father hath deceived me, and changed my 
wages ten times ; but God sufiered him not to hurt 

8 me. If he said thus, The speckled shall be thy 
wages ; then all the flock bare speckled : and if he 
said thus. The ringstraked shall be thy wages ; then 

9 bare all the flock ringstraked. Thus God hath taken 
away the cattle of your father, and given them to me. 

10 And it came to pass at the time that the flock con- 
ceived, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a 
dream, and, behold, the he-goats which leaped upon 
the flock were ringstraked, speckled, and gristed. 

11 And the angel of God said unto me in the dream, 
12 Ja'cob: and I said. Here am I. And he said, Lift 

up now thine eyes, and see, all the he-goats which 
leap upon the flock are ringstraked, speckled, and 
grisled: for I have seen all that La'ban doeth unto 

13 thee. I am the God of Beth'-el, where thou anoint- 
edst a pillar, where thou vowedst a vow unto me : 
now arise, get thee out from this land, and return 

14 unto the land of thy nativity. And Ra'chel and 
Le'ah answered and said unto him. Is there yet any 
portion or inheritance for us in our father's house? 

15 Are we not counted of him strangers? for he hath 
sold us, and hath also quite devoured ^our money. 

16 For all the riches which God hath taken away from 
our father, that is ours and our children's : now then, 

17 whatsoever God hath said unto thee, do. Then 
Ja'cob rose up, and set his sons and his wives upon 

18 the camels; and he carried away all his cattle, and 
all his substance which he had gathered, the cattle 
of his getting, which he had gathered in Pad'dan- 
a'ram, for to go to I'saac his father unto the land of 

19 Ca'naan. Now La'ban was gone to shear his sheep: 
and Ra'chel stole the 'teraphim that were her father's. 

20 And Ja'cob ^stole away unawares to La'ban, the 

21 Syr'i-an, in that he told him not that he fled. So he 
fled with all that he had; and he rose up, and 
passed over 'the River, and set his face toward the 
mountain of Gil'e-ad. 

22 And it was told La'ban on the third day that 

23 Ja'cob was fled. And he took his brethren with 
him, and pursued after him seven days' journey ; 
and he overtook him in the mountain of Gil'e-ad. 

24 And God came to La'ban the Syr'i-an in a dream of 
the night, and said unto him, "Take heed to thyself 
that thou speak not to Ja'cob either good or bad. 

25 And La'ban came up with Ja'cob. Now Ja'cob had 
pitched his tent in the mountain : and La'ban with his 

26 brethren pitched in the mountain of Gil'e-ad. And 
La'ban said to Ja'cob, What hast thou done, that

thou hast stolen awav unawares to me, and "carried away 
my daughters, as captives taken with the sword? 

2V Wherefore didst thou flee away secretly, and fsteal 
a\^•i^y from me; and didst not tell me, that I might have 
sent thee away with mirth, and with songs, with tabret, and 
with harp? 

28 And hast not suffered me Ho kiss my sons and my 
daughters? "thon hast now done foolishly in so doing, 

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

30 And now, though thou wouldest needs be gone, because 
thou sore longedst after thy father's house, yet wherefore 
hast thou ■'stolen my gods? 

31 And Ja'cob answered and said to La'ban, Because I was 
afraid : for I said, Peradvwiture thou wouldest take by force 
thy daughters from me. 

32 With whomsoever thou findest thy gods, 'let him not 
live : before our brethren discern thou what is thine with 
me, and take it to thee. For Ja'cob knew not that Ra'chel 
had stolen them. 

33 And La'ban went into Ja'cob's tent, and into Le'ah's 
tent, and into the two maidservants' tents; but he found 
them not. Then he went out of Le'ah's tent, and entered 
into Ra'chel's tent. 

34 Now Ra'chel had taken the images, and put them in the 
camel's furniture, and sat upon them. And La'ban fsearched 
all the tent, but found them not. 

35 And she said to her father, Let it not displease my lord 
that I can not ''rise up before thee : for the custom of women 
is upon me. And he searched, but found not the images. 

36 ^And Ja'cob was wroth, and chode with La'ban : and 
Ja'cob answered and said to La'ban, What is my trespass ? 
what is my sin, that thou hast so hotly pursued after me? 

37 Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast 
thou found of all thy household stuff? set it here before my 
brethren and thy brethren, that they may judge betwixt us 
both. 

38 This twenty years have I been with thee ; thy ewes and 
thy she-goats have not cast their young, and the rams of thy 
flock have I not eaten. 

39 'That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee ; 
I bare the loss of it; of *my hand didst thou require it, 
whether stolen by day, or stolen by night. 

40 Thus I was ; in the day the drought consumed me, and 
the frost by night ; and my sleep departed from mine eyes. 

41 Thus have I been twenty years in thy house: I 'served 
thee fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years for 
thy cattle ; and ""thou hast changed my wages ten times. 

42 "Except the God of my father, the God of A'bra-ham, 
and "the fear of I'saac, 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. 

43 *[[And La'ban answered and said unto Ja'cob, These 
daughters are my daughters, and these children are my chil- 
dren, and these cattle are my cattle, and all that thou seest 
is mine : and what can I do this day unto these my daugh- 
ters, or unto their children which they have borne? 

44 Now therefore come thou, ''let us make a covenant, I 
and thou ; "and let it be for a witness between me and thee. 

45 And Ja'cob took a stone, and set it up for a pillar. 

46 And Ja'cob said unto his brethren. Gather stones ; and 
fhey took stones, and made a heap : and they did eat there 
upon the heap. 

47 And La'ban called it || Je'gar-sa-ha-du'tha: but Ja'cob 
called it ||Gal'e-ed. 

48 And La'ban said, "This heap is a witness between me and 
thee this day. Therefore was the name of it called Gal'e-ed, 



thou hast stolen away unawares to me, and car- 
ried away my daughters as captives of the sword? 

27 Wherefore didst thou flee secretly, and 'steal away 
from me; and didst not tell me, that I might have 
sent thee away with mirth and with songs, with 

28 tabret and with harp; and hast not suffered me to 
kiss my sons and my daughters? now hast thou 

29 done foolishly. It is in the power of my hand to 
do you hurt : but the God of your father spake 
unto me yesternight, saying. Take heed to thyself 
that thou speak not to Ja'cob either good or bad. 

30 And now, though thou wouldest needs be gone, be- 
cause thou sore longedst after thy father's house, 

31 yet wherefore hast thou stolen my gods? And 
Ja'cob answered and said to La'ban, Because I was 
afraid: for I said. Lest thou shouldest take thy 

32 daughters from me by force. With whomsoever 
thou findest thy gods, he shall not live : before our 
brethren discern thou what is thine with me, and 
take it to thee. For Ja'cob knew not that Ra'chel 

33 had stolen them. And La'ban went into Ja'cob's 
tent, and into Le'ah's tent, and into the tent of the 
two maidservants ; but he found them not. And he 
went out of Le'ah's tent, and entered into Ra'chel's 

34 tent. Now Ra'chel had taken the teraphim, and put 
them in the camel's furniture, and sat upon them. 
And La'ban felt about all the tent, but found them 

35 not. And she said to her father. Let not my lord 
be angry that I can not rise up before thee ; for the 
manner of women is upon me. And he searched, 

36 but found not the teraphim. And Ja'cob was wroth, 
and chode with La'ban : and Ja'cob answered and 
said to La'ban. What is my trespass? what is my 

37 sin, that thou hast hotly pursued alter me? Whereas 
thou hast felt about all my stuff, what hast thou 
found of all thy household stuff? Set it here be- 
fore my brethren and thy brethren, that they may 

38judge betwixt us two. This twenty years have I been 
with thee; thy ewes and thy she-goats have not 
cast their young, and the rams of thy flocks have 

391 not eaten. That which was torn of beasts I 
brought not unto thee; I bare the loss of it; of 
my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by 

40 day or stolen by night. Thus I was ; in the day the 
drought consumed me, and the frost by night ; and 

41 my sleep fled from mine eyes. These twenty years 
have I been in thy house; I served thee fourteen 
years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy 
flock : and thou hast changed my wages ten times. 

42 Except the God of my father, the God of A'bra-ham, 
and the Fear of I'saac, had been with me, surely 
now hadst thou sent me away empty. God hath 
seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and 

43 rebuked thee yesternight. And La'ban answered 
and said unto Ja'cob, The daughters are my daugh- 
ters, and the children are my children, and the 
flocks are my flocks, and all that thou seest is mine : 
and what can I do this day unto these my daughters, 

44 or unto their children which they have borne ? And 
now come, let us make a covenant, I and thou ; and 

45 let it be for a witness between me and thee. And 

46 Ja'cob took a stone, and set it up for a pillar. And 
Ja'cob said unto his brethren. Gather stones; and 
they took stones, and made an heap : and they did 

47 eat there by the heap. And La'ban called it ^Je'gar- 

48 sa-ha-du'tha: but Ja'cob called it ^Gal'e-ed. AndLa'ban 
said, This heap is witness between me and thee this 
day. Therefore was the name of it called Gal'e-ed :

me and thee, when we are absent one from another. 

50 If thou shalt afflict my daughters, or if thou shalt take 
other wives besides my daughters, no man is with us ; see, 
God is witness betwixt me and thee. 

51 And La'ban said to Ja'cob, Behold this heap, and behold 
this pillar, which I have cast betwixt me and thee ; 

52 This heap be witness, and this pillar be witness, that I 
will not pass over this heap to thee, and that thou shalt not 
pass over this heap and this pillar unto me, for harm. 

53 The God of A'bra-ham, and the God of Na'hor, the God 
of their father, "judge betwixt us. And Ja'cob 'sware by 
"the fear of his father I'saac. 

54 Then Ja'cob |1 offered sacrifice upon the mount, and 
called his brethren to eat bread : and they did eat bread, 
and tarried all night in the mount. 

55 And early in the morning La'ban rose up, and kissed 
his sons and his daughters, and ''blessed them : and La'ban 
departed, and " returned unto his place. 

CHAPTER XXXII. 

Jacob wresileth with an angel at Peniel^ where he is called Israel. 

AND Ja'cob went on his way, and the "angels of God 
met him. 

2 And when Ja'cob saw them, he said, This is God's ""host : 
and he called the name of that place || Ma-ha-na'im. 

3 And Ja'cob sent messengers before him to E'sau his 
brother "unto the land of Se'ir, ''the fcountry of E'dom. 

4 And he commanded them, saying, 'Thus shall ye speak 
unto my lord E'sau ; Thy servant Ja'cob saith thus, I have 
sojourned with La'ban, and stayed there until low : 

5 And-^I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, 
and womenservants : and I have sent to tell my lord, that 
"I may find grace in thy sight. 

6 ^And the messengers returned to Ja'cob, saying, "VVe 
came to thy brother E'sau, and also ''he cometh to meet 
thee, and four hundred men with him. 

7 Then Ja'cob was greatly afraid and 'distressed: and he 
divided the people that was with him, and the flocks, and 
heiJs, and the camels, into two bands ; 

8 And said. If E'sau come to the one company, and smite 
it, then the other company which is left shall escape. 

9 •|y*And Ja'cob said, 'O God of my father A'bra-ham, and 
God of my father I'saac, the Loed "which saidst unto me, 
Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will 
deal well with thee : 

10 flam not worthy of the lea.stofall the "mercies, and of all 
thetruth,whichthouhastshewed unto thy servant; forwith'my

11 ^Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, 
from the hand of E'sau ; for I fear him, lest he will come 
and smite me, and "the mother fwith the children. 

1 2 And ''thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make 
thy seed as the sand of the sea, which can not be numbered 
for multitude. 

13 ^And he lodged there that same night: and took of 
that which came to his hand "a present for E'sau his brother ; 

14 Two hundred she-goats and twenty he-goats, two 
hundred ewes and twenty rams, 

15 Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine and ten 
bulls, twenty she-a-sses and ten foals. 

16 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, 
every drove by themselves ; and said unto his servants, 
Pass over before me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove. 

17 And he commanded the foremost, saying, When E'sau 
my brother meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying. Whose 
art thou? and whither goest thou? and whose are these 
before thee ? 

18 Thenthoushaltsay, 7^ejr6ethy servant Ja'cob's;itisapres-

49 and 'Miz'pah, for he said, The Lord watch between 
me and thee, when we are ^absent one from another. 

50 If thou shalt afflict my daughters, and if thou shalt 
take wives beside my daughters, no man is with us; 

51 see, God is witness betwixt me and thee. And 
La'bau said to Ja'cob, Behold this heap, and behold 
the pillar, which I have set betwixt me and thee. 

52 This heap be witness, and the pillar be witness, that 
I will not pass over this heap to thee, and that thou 
shall not pass over this heap and this pillar unto 

53 me, for harm. The God of A'bra-ham, and the God 
of Na'hor, the 'God of their father, judge betwixt us. 
And Ja'cob sware by the Fear of his father I'saac. 

54 And Ja'cob offered a sacrifice in the mountain; and 
called his brethren to eat bread : and they did eat 

55 bread, and tarried all night in the mountain. And 
early in the morning La'ban rose up, and kissed 
his sons and his daughters, and blessed them: 

CiC\ and La'ban departed, and returned unto his place. 
04 And Ja'cob went on his way, and the angels of 

2 God met him. And Ja'cob said when he saw them. 
This is God's host : and he called the name of that 
place *Ma-ha-na'im. 

3 And Ja'cob sent messengers before him to E'sau 
his brother unto the land of Se'ir, the field of E'dom. 

4 And he commanded them, saying. Thus shall ye 
say unto my lord E'sau ; Thus saith thy servant 
Ja'cob, I have sojourned with La'ban and stayed 

5 until now : and I have oxen, and asses and flocks, 
and menservants and maidservants : and I have sent 
to tell my lord, that I may find grace in thy sight, 

6 And the messengers returned to Ja'cob, saying, We 
came to thy brother E'sau, and moreover he cometh 

7 to meet thee, and four hundred men with him. Then 
Ja'cob was greatly afraid and was distressed : and he 
divided the people that was with him, and the flocks, 
and the herds, and the camels, into two companies; 

8 and he said, If E'sau come to the one company, and 
smite it, then the company which is left shall escape. 

9 And Ja'cob said, O God of my father A'bra-ham, and 
God of my father I'saac, O Lord, which saidst unto 
me. Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, 

10 and I will do thee good: ''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 
staff I passed over this Jor'dan; and now I am be- 
ll come two companies. Deliver me, I pray thee, from 
the hand of my brother, from the hand of E'sau : for 
I fear him, lest he come and smite me, the mother 

12 with the children. And thou saidst, I will surely 
do thee good, and make thy seed as the sand of the 

13 sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude. And 
he lodged there that night ; and took of that which 
he had with him a present for E'sau his brother; 

14 two hundred she-goats, and twenty he-goats, two 

15 hundred ewes and twenty rams, thirty milch camels 
and their colts, forty kine and ten bulls, twenty she 

IGa.sses and ten foals. And he delivered them into 
the hand of his servants, every drove by itself; and 
said unto his servants. Pass over before me, and 

17 put a space betwixt drove and drove. And he 
commanded the foremost, saying. When E'sau my 
brother meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying. 
Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and 

18 whose are these before thee? then thou shalt say. 
They be thy servant Ja'cob's ; it is a present sent un- 
to my lord E'sau : and, behold, he also is behind us.

19 And so commanded he the second, and the third, and 
all that followed the droves, saying. On this manner shall 
ye speak unto E'sau, when ye find him. 

20 And say ye moreover. Behold, thy servant Ja'cob is 
behind us. For he said, I will 'appease him with the present 
that goeth before me, and afterward I will see his face ; per- 
adventure he will accept fof me. 

21 So went the present over before him; and himself 
lodged that night in the company. 

22 And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and 
his two Avomenservants, and his eleven sons, "and passed 
over the ford Jab'bok. 

23 And he took them, and fsent them over the brook, 
and sent over that he had. 

24 ^ And Ja'cob was left alone ; and there "'wrestled a man 
with him until the fbreaking of the day. 

25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, 
he touched the hollow of his thigh ; and "the hollow of 
Ja'cob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. 

26 And "he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And 
he said, "I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. 

27 And he said unto him, What is thy name ? And he said, 
Ja'cob. 

28 And he said, ''Thy name shall be called no more Ja'cob, 
but II Is'ra-el : for as a prince hast thou "power with God and 
■^with men, and ha.st prevailed. 

29 And Ja'cob asked him, and said. Tell me, I pray thee, 
thy name. And he said, "Wherefore is it that thou dost ask 
after my name ? And he blessed him there. 

30 And Ja'cob called the name of the place || Pe-ni'el : for 
^I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved. 

31 And as he pas.sed over Pe-nu'el the sun rose upon him, 
and he halted upon his thigh. 

32 Therefore the children of Is'ra-el eat not of the sinew 
which shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto 
this day ; because he touched the hollow of Ja'cob's thigh 
in the sinew that shrank. 

CHAPTER XXXIII. 

Meeting of Jacob and Esau— Jacob buyeth a field at Shatem. 

ND Ja'cob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, 
"E'sau came, and with him four hundred men. And 
he divided the children unto Le'ah, and unto Ra'chel, and 
unto the two handmaids. 

2 And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and 
Le'ahandherchildrenafter.andRa'chelandJo'sephhindermost. 

3 And he passed over before them, and 'bowed himself to 
the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother. 

4 "And E'sau ran to meet him, and embraced him, ''and fell 
on his neck, and kissed him : and they wept. 

5 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the 
children ; and said, Who are. those fwith thee ? And he said, 
The children 'which God hath graciously given thy servant. 

6 Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, 
and they bowed themselves. 

7 And Le'ah also with her children came near, and bowed 
themselves, and after came Jo'seph near and Ra'chel, and 
they bowed themselves. 

8 And he said, fWhat meanest thou by •'all this drove 
which I met ? And he said, ITiese are 'to find grace in the 
sight of my lord. 

9 And E'sau said, I have enough, my brother ; fkeep that 
thou hast unto thyself. 

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

11 Take, I pray thee, 'my blessing that is brought to thee ; 
because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I 
have fenough. ^And he urged him, and he took it. 



A 



19 And he commanded also the second, and the third, 
and all that followed the droves, saying, On this 
manner shall ye speak unto E'sau, when ye find him ; 

20 and ye shall say, Moreover, behold, thy servant 
Ja'cob is behind us. For he said, I will appease 
him with the present that goeth before me, and after- 
ward I will see his face ; peradventure he will accept 

21 me. So the present passed over before him : and 
he him-self lodged that night in the company. 

22 And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, 
and his two handmaids, and his eleven children, and 

23 pa.ssed over the ford of Jab'bok. And he took them, 
and sent them over the stream, and sent over that he 

24 had. And Ja'cob was left alone ; and there wrestled 

25 a man with him until the breaking of the day. And 
when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he 
touched the hollow of his thigh ; and the hollow of 
Ja'cob's thigh was strained, as he wrestled with him 

26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And 
he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me 

27 And he said unto him. What is thy name ? And 

28 he said, Ja'cob. And he said. Thy name shall be 
called no more Ja'cob, but 'Is'ra-el: for ^thou hast 
'striven with God and with men, and hast prevailed. 

29 And Ja'cob asked him, and said,Tell me, I pray thee, 
thy name. And he said. Wherefore is it that thou 
dost ask after my name ? And he blessed him there 

30 And Ja'cob called the name of the place *Pe-ni'el 
for, said he, I have seen God face to face, and my 

31 life is preserved. And the sun rose upon him as he 
passed over Pe-nu'el, and he halted upon his thigh. 

32 Therefore the children of Is'ra-el eat not the sinew 
of the hip which is upon the hollow of the thigh, 
unto this day: because he touched the hollow of 
Ja'cob's thigh in the sinew of the hip. 



And Ja'cob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and 
behold, E'sau came, and with him four hundred men. 
And he divided the children unto Le'ah, and unto 

2 Ra'chel, and unto the two handmaids. And he put 
the handmaids and their children foremost, and Le'ah 
and her children after, and Ra'chel and Jo'seph hind- 

3ermost. And he himself passed over before them, 
and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until 

4 he came near to his brother. And E'sau ran to meet 
him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and 

5 kissed him : and they wept. And he lifted up his 
eyes, and saw the women and the children ; and 
said. Who are these with thee ? And he said. The 
children which God hath graciously given thy 

6 servant. Then the handmaids came near, they and 

7 their children, and they bowed themselves. And 
Le'ah also and her children came near, and bowed 
themselves : and after came Jo'seph near and Ra'chel, 

Sand they bowed themselves. And he said. What 

meanest thou by all this company which I met ? 

And he said, To find grace in the sight of my lord. 

9 And E'sau said, I have enough ; my brother, let 

10 that thou hast be thine. And Ja'cob said, Nay, 
I pray thee, if now I have found grace in thy sight, 
then receive my present at my hand : 'forasmuch 
as I have seen thy face, as one seeth the face of 

11 God, and thou wast pleased with me. Take, I pray 
thee, my ''gift that is brought to thee ; because 
God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I 
have 'enough. And he urged him, and he took it.

12 And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, 
and I will go before thee. 

13 And he said unto him, My lord knoweth that the 
children are tender, and the flocks and herds with young 
are with me ; and if men should overdrive them one day, all 
the flock will die. 

14 Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant ; 
and I will lead on softly, according fas the cattle that goeth 
before me and the children be able to endure, until I come 
unto my lord 'unto Se'ir. 

15 And E'sau said. Let me now fleave with thee some of 
the folk that are with me. And he said,tWhat needeth it? 
"let me find grace in the sight of my lord. 

16 ^So E'sau returned that day on his way unto Se'ir. 

17 And Ja'cob journeyed to "Suc'coth, and built him a 
house, and made booths for his cattle : therefore the name 
of the place is called || Suc'coth. 

18 TJAnd Ja'cob came to "Sha'lem, a city of H^She'chem, 
which is in the land of Ca'naan, when he came from Pa'dan- 
a'ram; and pitched his tent before the city. 

19 And «he bought a parcel of a field, where he had spread 
his tent, at the hand of the children of || Ha'mor, She'chem's 
father, for a hundred || pieces of money. 

20 And he erected there an altar, and ''called it l|El-E-Io'- 
he-Is'ra-el. 

CHAPTER XXXIV. 

Tke sons of Jacob offer the condition of circumcision to the Skeckemites. 

AND "Di'nah the daughter of Le'ah, which she bare unto 
Ja'cob, 'went out to see the daughters of the land. 

2 And when She'chem the son of Ha'mor the Hi'vite, prince 
of the country, "saw her, he ''took her, and lay with her, and 
fdefiled her. 

3 And his soul clave unto Di'nah the daughter of Ja'cob, and 
he loved the damsel, and spake fkindly unto the damsel. 

4 And She'chem "spake unto his father Ha'mor, saying, 
Get me this damsel to wife. 

5 And Ja'cob heard that he had defiled Di'nah his daughter : 
(now his sons were with his cattle in the field : and Ja'cob 
•^held his peace until they were come.) 

6 ^ And Ha'mor the &tner of She'chem went out unto Ja'cob 
to commune with him. 

7 And the sons of Ja'cob came out of the field when they 
heard it: and the men were grieved, and they "were very 
wroth, because he ''had wrought folly in Is'-ra-el in lying 
with Ja'cob's daughter, 'which thing ought not to be done. 

8 And Ha'mor communed with them, saying, The soul of 
my son She'chem longeth for your daughter: I pray you 
give her him to wife. 

9 And make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters 
unto us, and take our daughters unto you. 

10 And ye shall dwell with us: and the *land shall be 
before you; dwell and "trade ye therein, and ""get you 
possessions therein. 

11 And She'chem said unto her father and unto her breth- 
ren, Let me find grace in your eyes, and what ye shall say 
unto me I will give. 

1 2 Ask me never so much "dowry and gift, and I will give ac- 
cording as ye shall say unto me : but give me the damsel to wife. 

13 And the sons of Ja'cob answered She'chem and Ha'mor 
his father "deceitfully, and said, because he had defiled 
Di'nah their sister: 

14 And they said unto them. We can not do this thing, to 
give our sister to one that is uncircumcised ; for ^that were 
a reproach unto us : 

15 But in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as 
we be, that every male of you be circumcised : 

16 Then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will 
take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and 
we will become one people. 



12 And he said. Let us take our journey, and let us 

13 go, and I will go before thee. And he said unto 
him. My lord knoweth that the children are tender, 
and that the flocks and herds with me give suck : 
and if they overdrive them one day, all the flocks 

14 will die. Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over be- 
fore his servant: and I will lead on softly, accord- 
ing to the pace of the cattle that is before me and 
according to the pace of the children, until I come 

15 unto my lord unto Se'ir. And E'sau said. Let me 
now leave with thee some of the folk that are with 
me. And he said. What needeth it? let me find 

16 grace in the sight of my lord. So E'sau returned 

17 that day on his way unto Se'ir. And Ja'cob jour- 
neyed to Suc'coth, and built him an house, and 
made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of 
the place is called 'Suc'coth. 

18 And Ja'cob came ^in peace to the city of She'chem, 
which is in the land of Ca'naan, when he came 
from Pad'dan-a'ram ; and encamped before the city. 

19 And he bought the parcel of ground, where he had 
spread his tent, at the hand of the children of Ha'mor, 
She'chem's father, for an hundred ^pieces of money. 

20 And he erected there an altar, and called it ^El-e-lo'- 
he-Is'ra-ei. 

v"^ And Di'nah the daughter of Le'ah, which she bare 
unto Ja'cob, went out to see the daughters of the 

2 land. And She'chem the son of Ha'mor the Hi'vite, 
the prince of the land, saw her ; and he took her. 

Sand lay with her, and humbled her. And his soul 
clave unto Di'nah the daughter of Ja'cob, and he 
loved the damsel, and spake ^kindly unto the damsel. 

4 And She'chem spake unto his father Ha'mor, saying, 

5 Get me this damsel to wife. Now Ja'cob heard that 
he had defiled Di'nah his daughter; and his sons 
were with his cattle in the field : and Ja'cob held his 

6 peace until they came. And Ha'mor the fiither of 
She'chem went out unto Ja'cob to commune with 

7 him. And the sons of Ja'cob came in from the 
field when they heard it : and the men were grieved, 
and they were very wroth, because he had wrought 
folly in Is'ra-el in lying with Ja'cob's daughter; 

8 which thing ought not to be done. And Ha'mor 
communed with them, saying, The soul of my son 
She'chem longeth for your daughter: I pray you 

9 give her unto him to wife. And make ye marriages 
with us ; give your daughters unto us, and take our 

10 daughters unto you. And ye shall dwell with us: 
and the land shall be before you; dwell and trade 

11 ye therein, and get you possessions therein. And 
She'chem said unto her father and unto her brethren. 
Let me find grace in your eyes, and what ye shall 

12 say unto me I will give. Ask me never so much 
dowry and gift, and I will give according as ye shall 

13 say unto me : but give me the damsel to wife. And 
the sons of Ja'cob answered She'chem and Ha'mor 
his father with guile, and spake, because he had de- 

14 filed Di'nah their sister, and said unto them. We 
can not do this thing, to give our sister to one that 
is uncircumcised ; for that were a reproach unto us : 

15 only on this condition will we consent unto you: if 
ye will be as we be, that every male of you be cir- 

16cumcised; then will we give our daughters unto 
you, and we will take your daughters to us, and we 
will dwell with you, and we will become one people.

17 But if ye will not hearken unto us, to be circumcised; 
then will we take our daughter, and we will be gone. 

18 And their words pleased Ha'mor and She'chem Ha'- 
mor's son. 

19 And the young man deferred not to do the thing, 
because he had delight in Ja'cob's daughter: and he was 
'more honourable than all the house of his father. 

20 ^[And Ha'mor and She'chem his son came unto the gate 
oftheir city, and communed with the men of their city, saying, 

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

22 Only herein will the men consent unto us for to dwell 
with us, to be one people, if every male among us be cir- 
cumcised, as they are circumcised. 

23 Shall not their cattle and their substance and every 
beast of theirs be ours ? only let us consent unto them, and 
they will dwell with us. 

24 And unto Ha'mor and unto She'chem his son hearkened 
all that ''went out of the gate of his city ; arid every male 
was circumcised, all that went out of the gate of his city. 

25 *f[And it came to pass on the third" day, when they 
were sore, that two of the sons of Ja'cob, 'Sim'e-on and 
Le'vi, Di'nah's brethren, took each man his sword, and 
came upon the city boldly, and slew all the males. 

26 And they slew Ha'mor and She'chem his son with the 
fedge of the sword, and took Di'nah out of She'chem's 
house, and went out. 

27 The sons of Ja'cob came upon the slain, and spoiled 
the city, because they had defiled their sister. 

28 They took their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses, 
and that which was in the city, and that which was in the field, 

29 And all their wealth, and all their little ones, and their 
wives took they captive, and spoiled even all that was in 
the house. 

30 And Ja'cob said to Sim'e-on and Le'vi, 'Ye have "troubled 
me *to make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, 
among the Ca'naan-ites and the Per'iz-zites : "and I being few 
in number, they shall gather themselves together against me, 
and slay me ; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house. 

31 And they said. Should he deal with our sister as with 
a harlot? 

CHAPTER XXXV. 

Racket dieih in the way to Edar — The sons of Jacob — Burial of Isaac. 

AND God said unto Ja'cob, Arise, go up to "Beth'-el, and 
dwell there : and make there an altar unto God, Hhat 
appeared unto thee "when thou fleddest from the fece of 
E'sau thy brother. 

2 Then Ja'cob said unto his "Tiousehold, and to all that 
loere with him. Put away 'the strange gods that are among 
you, and -'^be clean, and change your garments : 

3 And let us arise, and go up to Beth'-el ; and I will make 
there an altar unto God, "who answered me in the day of 
my distress, ''and was with me in the way which I went. 

4 And they gave unto Ja'cob all the strange gods which were 
in their hand, and all their 'earrings which were in their ears ; 
and Ja'cob hid them under 'the oak which was by She'chem. 

5 And they journeyed : and 'the terror of God was upon 
the cities that were round about them, and they did not 
pursue after the sons of Ja'cob. 

6 ^[So Ja'cob came to "'Luz, which is in the land of Ca'naan, 
that is, Beth'-el, he and all the people that were with him. 

7 And he "built there an altar, and called the place ||E1- 
beth'-el ; because "there God appeared unto him, when he 
fled from the face of his brother. 

8 But "Deb'o-rah Ee-bek'ah's nurse died, and she was 
buried beneath Beth'-el under an oak : and the name of it 
was called || Al'lon-bach'uth. 



17 But if ye will not hearken unto us, to be circumcised ; 
then will we take our daughter, and we will be gone. 

18 And their words pleased Ha'mor, and She'chem 
19Ha'mor's son. And the young man deferred not to 

do the thi?ig, because he had delight in Ja'cob's 
daughter: and he was honoured above all the 

20 house of his father. And Ha'mor and She'chem 
his son came unto the gate of their city, and com- 

21 muned with the men of their city, saying. These 
men are peaceable with us ; therefore let them dwell 
in the land, and trade therein ; for, behold, the land 
is large enough for them ; let us take their daughters 
to us for wives, and let us give them our daughters. 

22 Only on this condition will the men consent unto us 
to dwell with us, to become one people, if every 
male among us be circumcised, as they are circum- 

23cised. Shall not their cattle and their substance 
and all their beasts be ours? only let us consent 

24 unto them, and they will dwell with us. And unto 
Ha'mor and unt She'chem his son hearkened all 
that went out of the ~itc of his city ; and every 
male was circumcised, r '! that went out of the gate 

25 of his city. And it c, le to pass on the third day, 
when they were sore, tl it two of the sons of Ja'cob, 
Sim'e-on and Le'vi, Di'iiah's brethren, took each man 
his sword, and came upon the city 'unavvares, and 

26 slew all the males. And they slew lia'mor and 
She'chem his son with the edge of the sword, and 
took Di'nah out of She'chem's house, and went forth. 

27 The sons of Ja'cob came upon the slain, and spoiled 

28 the city, because they had defiled their sister. They 
took their flocks and their herds and their asses, 
and that which wrr in the city, and that which was 

29 in the field ; and tdl their wealth, and all their little 
ones and their wives, took they captive and spoiled, 

30 even all that was in the house. And Ja'cob said to 
Sim'e-on and Le'vi, Ye have troubled me, to make me 
to stink among the inhabiti^nts of the land, among 
the Ca'naan-ites and th: Per'iz-zites : and, I being few 
in number, they will gather themselves together 
against me and smite me ; and I shall be destroyed, 

31 1 and my house. And they said. Should he deal 
with our sister as with an harlot? 

OO A nd God said unto Ja'cob, Arise, go up to Beth'-el, 
and dwell there : and make there an altar unto God, 
who appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from 
2 the face of E'sau thy brother. Then Ja'cob said 
unto his household, and to all that were with him. 
Put away the strange gods that are among you, and 
3 purify yourselves, and change your garments: and 
let us arise, and go up to Beth'-el ; and I will make 
there an altar unto God, who answered me in the 
day of my distress, and was with me in the way 

4 which I went. And they gave unto Ja'cob all the 
strange gods which were in their hand, and the 
rings which were in their ears ; and Ja'cob hid them 

5 under the ^oak which was by She'chem. And they 
journeyed : and % great terror was upon the cities 
that were round about them, and they did not 

6 pursue after the sons of Ja'cob. So Ja'cob came to 
Luz, which is in the land of Ca'naan (the same is 
Beth'-el), he and all the people that were with him. 

7 And he built there an altar, and called the place 
*El-beth'-el : because there God was revealed unto 

8 him, when he fled from the face of his brother. And 
Deb'o-rah Re-bek'ah's nurse died, and she was 
buried below Beth'-el under the oak : and the name 
of it was called 'Al'lon-bac'uth.

9 ^And 'God appeared unto Ja'cob again, when he came 
out of Pa'dan-a'ram, and blessed him. 

10 And God said unto him, Thy name is Ja'cob : 'thy 
name shall not be called any more Ja'cob, 'but Is'ra-el shall 
be thy name ; and he called his name Is'ra-el. 

11 And God said unto him, 'I am God Almighty : be fruit- 
ful and niultiply ; "a nation and a company of nations shall 
be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins ; 

1 2 And the land "which I gave A'bra-ham and I'saac, to thee 
I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land. 

13 And God ""went up from him in the place where he 
talked with him. 

14 And Ja'cob ^set up a pillar in the place where he talked 
with him, even a pillar of stone : and he poured a drink- 
offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon. 

15 And Ja'cob called the name of the place where God 
spake with him, 'Beth'-el. 

16 ^And they journeyed from Beth'-el ; and there was but 
fa little way to come to Eph'rath : and Ra'chel travailed, 
and she had hard labour. 

1 7 And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the 
midwife said unto her. Fear not ; "thou shalt have this son also. 

18 And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for 
she died,) that she called his name || Ben-o'ni : but his father 
called him || Ben'ja-min. 

19 And ''Ea'chel died, and was buried in the way to 
''Eph'rath, which is Beth'-Ie-hem. 

20 And Ja'cob set a pillar upon her grave : that is the 
pillar of Ra'chel's grave ''unto this day. 

21 ^And Is'ra-el journeyed, and spread his tent beyond 
'"the tower of E'dar. 

22 And it came to pass, when Is'ra-el dwelt in that land, that 
Reu'ben went and -Oay with Bil'hah his father's concubine : 
and Is'ra-el heard it. Now the sons of Ja'cob were twelve : 

23 The sons of Le'ah ; "Reu'ben, Jac'ob's firstborn, and 
Sim'e-on, and Le'vi, and Ju'dah, and Is'sa-char, and Zeb'u-lun: 

24 The sons of Ra'chel ; Jo'seph, and Ben'ja-min : 

25 And the sons of Bil'hah, Ra'chel's handmaid ; Dan, and 
Naph'ta-li : 

26 And the sons of Zil'pah, Le'ah's handmaid ; Gad, and 
Ash'er. These are the sons of Ja'cob, which were born to 
him in Pa'dan-a'ram. 

27 ^And Ja'cob came unto I'saac his father unto *Mam're, 
unto the 'city of Ar'bah, which is He'bron, where A'bra-ham 
and I'saac sojourned. 

28 And the days of I'saac were a hundred and fourscore 
years. 

29 And I'saac gave up the ghost, and died, and *was gath- 
ered unto his people, being old and full of days : and 'his 
sons E'sau and Ja'cob buried him. 

CHAPTER XXXVI. 

Esau's three wives^His removal to Mount Seir. 

NOW these are the generations of E'sau, "who is E'dom. 
2 'E'sau took his wives of the daughters of Ca'naan ; 
A'dah the daughter of E'lon the Hit'tite, and "A-ho-lib'a-mah 
the daughter of A'nah the daughter of Zib'e-on the Hi'vite ; 

3 And''Bash'e-math Ish'ma-el'sdaughter,sister ofNe-ba'joth. 

4 And 'A'dah bare to E'sau El'i-phaz ; and Bash'e-math 
bare Reu'el; 

5 And A-ho-lib'a-mah bare Je'ush, and Ja-a'lam, and 
Ko'rah : these aire the sons of E'sau, which were born unto 
him in the land of Ca'naan. 

6 And E'sau took his wives, and his sons, and his daugh- 
ters, and all the fpersons of his house, and his cattle, and all 
his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the 
land of Ca'naan ; and went into the country from the face 
of his brother Ja'cob. 

7 -'^For their riches were more than that they might dwell 



9 And God appeared unto Ja'cob again, when he 

10 came from Pad'dan-a'ram, and blessed him. And 
God said unto him. Thy name is Ja'cob : thy name 
shall not be called any more Ja'cob, but Is'ra-el shall 

11 be thy name : and he called his name Is'ra-el. And 
God said unto him, I am 'God Almighty : be fruit- 
ful and multiply ; a nation and a company of nations 
shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy 

12 loins ; and the land which I gave unto A'bra-ham and 
I'saac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after 

13 thee will I give the land. And God went up from 

14 him in the place where he spake with him. And 
Ja'cob set up a pillar in the place where he spake 
with him, a pillar of stone : and he poured out a 

15 drink offering thereon, and poured oil thereon. And 
Ja'cob called the name of the place where God 

16 spake with him, Beth'-el. And they journeyed from 
Beth'-el ; and there was still some way to come to 
Eph'rath : and Ra'chel travailed, and she had hard 

17 labour. And it came to pass, when she was in hard 
labour, that the midwife said unto her. Fear not ; 

18 for now thou shalt have another son. And it came 
to pass, as her soul was in departing (for she died), 
that she called his name ^Ben-o'ni : but his father 

19 called him ^Ben'ja-min. And Ra'chel died, and was 
buried in the way to Eph'rath (the same is Beth'- 

20 le-hem). And Ja'cob set up a pillar upon her grave : 
the same is the Pillar of Ra'chel's grave unto this 

21 day. And Is'ra-el journeyed, and spread his tent be- 
22yond the tower of E'der. And it came to pass 

while Is'i-a-el dwelt in that land, that Reu'ben went 
and lay with Bil'hah his tather's concubine : and 
Is'ra-el heard of it. 

23 Now the sons of Ja'cob were twelve : the sons of 
Le'ah ; Reu'ben, Ja'cob's firstborn, and Sim'e-on, and 

24 Le'vi, and Ju'dah, and Is'sa-char, and Zeb'u-lun : the 
25 sons of Ra'chel; Jo'seph and Ben'ja-min: and the 

sons of Bil'hah, Ra'chel's handmaid ; Dan and 

26 Naph'ta-li : and the sons of Zil'pah, Le'ah's handmaid; 
Gad and Ash'er : these are the sons of Ja'cob, which 

27 were born to him in Pad'dan-a'ram. And Ja'cob 
came unto I'saac his father to Mam're,toKir'i-ath-ar'ba 
(the same is He'bron), where A'bra-ham and I'saac 

28 sojourned. And the days of I'saac were an hundred 

29 and fourscore years. And I'saac gave up the ghost, 
and died, and was gathered unto his people, old and 
full of days : and E'sau and Ja'cob his sons buried 
him. 

■^O Now these are the generations of E'sau (the same 

2 is E'dom). E'sau took his wives of the daughters of 
Ca'naan; A'dah the daughter of E'lon the Hit'tite, 
and O-ho-lib'a-mah the daughter of A'nah, the ^daugh- 

3 ter of Zib'e-on the Hi'vite ; and Bas'e-math Ish'ma-el's 

4 daughter, sister of Ne-ba'ioth. And A'dah bare to 

5 E'sau El'i-phaz ; and Bas'e-math bare Reu'el ; and 
O-ho-lib'a-mah bare Je'ush, and Ja'lam, and Ko'rah : 
these are the sons of E'sau, which were born unto him 

6 in the land of Ca'naan. And E'sau took his wives, and 
his sons, and his daughters, and all the souls of his 
house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his pos- 
sessions, which he had gathered in the land of Ca'naan ; 
and went into a land away from his brother Ja'cob. 

7 For their substance was too great for them to dwell

CHAPTER XXXVII. 

Joseph's two dreams—His brethren conspire his death— Sold to Potiphar. 

AND Ja'cob dwelt in the land fwherein his father was 
a stranger, in the land of Ca'naan. 

2 These are the generations of Ja'cob. Jo'seph temg' seven- 
teen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren ; and 
the lad was with the sons of Bil'hah, and with the sons of 
Zil'pah, his father's wives: and Jo'seph brought unto his 
father 'their evil report. 

3 Now Is'ra-el loved Jo'seph more than all his children, be- 
cause 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 Jo'seph 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 *iyAnd his brethren went to feed their father's flock in 
She'chem. 

13 And Is'ra-el said unto Jo'seph, Do not thy brethren 
feed the flock in She'chem ? 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, fsee 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 
*He'bron, and he came to She'chem. 

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 flacks. 



36 And Ha'dad died, and Sam'lah of Mas're-kah reigned 

37 in his stead. And Sam'lah died, and Sha'ul of Re- 

38 ho'both by the River reigned in his stead. And Sha'ul 
died, and Ba'al-ha'nan the son of Ach'bor reigned in 

39 his stead. And Ba'al-ha'nan the son of Ach'bor died, 
and 'Ha'dar reigned in his stead : and the name of his 
city was ^Pa'u ; and his wife's name was Me-het'a-bel, 
daughter of Ma'tred, the daughter of Mez'a-hab. 

40 And these are the names of the dukes that came of 
E'sau, according to their families, after their places, 
by their names; duke Tim'nah, duke 'Al'vah, duke 

41 Je'theth; duke O-ho-lib'a-mah, duke E'lah, duke 
42 Pi'non; duke Ke'naz, duke Te'man, duke Mib'zar; 
43 duke Mag'di-el, duke I'ram : these be the dukes of 

E'dom, according to their habitations in the land 
of their possession. This is E'sau the father of Hhe 
E'dom-ites. 

^/ And Ja'cob dwelt in the land of his father's so- 
2journings, in the land of Ca'naan. These are the 
generations of Ja'cob. Jo'seph, being seventeen 
years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; 
and he was a lad with the sons of Bil'hah, and with 
the sons of Zil'pah, his father's wives: and Jo'seph 
brought the evil report of them unto their father. 

3 Now Is'ra-el loved Jo'seph more than all his children, 
because he was the son of his old age : and he made 

4 him 'a coat of many colours. And his brethren saw 
that their father loved him more than all his breth- 
ren; and they hated him, and could not speak 

5 peaceably unto him. And Jo'seph dreamed a dream, 
and he told it to his brethren: and they hated him 

6 yet the more. 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 came round about, and 

8 made obeisance to my sheaf. 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 

9 for his words. And he dreamed yet another dream, 
and told it to his brethren, and said, Behold, I have 
dreamed yet a dream ; and, behold, the sun and the 

10 moon and eleven stars made obeisance to me. And 
he told it to his father, and to his brethren ; and his 
father rebuked him, and said unto him. What is this 
dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy 
mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down 

11 ourselves to thee to the earth? And his brethren 
envied him ; but his father kept the saying in mind. 

12 And his brethren went to feed their father's flock in 

13 She'chem. And Is'ra-el said unto Jo'seph, Do not 
thy brethren feed the flock in She'chem? come, 
and I will send thee unto them. And he said to 

14 him. Here am I. And he said to him. Go now, 
see whether it be well with thy brethren, and 
well with the flock; and bring me word again. 
So he sent him out of the vale of He'bron, and 

15 he came to She'chem. And a certain man found 
him, and, behold, he was wandering in the field: 
and the man asked him, saying. What seekest 

16 thou? And he said, I seek my brethren: tell 
me, I pray thee, where they are feeding the flack.

17 And the man said, They are departed hence ; for I heard 
them say, Let us go to Do'than. And Jo'seph went after his 
brethren, and found them in "'Do'than. 

18 And ■when they sa-w him afar off, even before he came 
near unto them, "^hey conspired against him to slay him. 

19 And they said one toanother,Behold,thistdreamer 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 "Reu'ben heard it, and he delivered him out of 
their hands ; and said. Let us not kill him. 

22 And Reu'ben 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 de- 
liver him to his father again. 

23 ^And it came to pass, when Jo'seph was come unto his 
brethren, that they stripped Jo'seph out of his coat, his coat 
of many 1 1 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 ''Ish'ma-el- 
ites came from Gil'e-ad, with their camels bearing spicery 
and 'balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to E'gypt. 

26 And Ju'dah 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 Ish'ma-el-ites, and "let 
not our hand be upon him ; for he is ^our brother, and "our 
flesh : and his brethren fwere content. 

28 Then there passed by ''Mid'i-an-ites merchantmen ; and 
they drew and lifted up Jo'seph out of the pit, "and sold 
Jo'seph to the Ish'ma-el-ites for Hwenty pieces of silver : and 
they brought Jo'seph into E'gypt. 

29 ^And Reu'ben returned unto the pit; and, behold, 
Jo'seph 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 *Jo'seph'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 ; Jo'seph is without doubt rent in pieces. 

34 And Ja'cob "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 com- 
fort 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 Mid'i-an-ites sold him into E'gypt unto Pot'i- 
phar, an fofficer of Pha'raoh's, and t|| captain of the guard. 

CHAPTER XXXVIII. 

Er marrielh Tamar—She deceiveth Judah—Pharez and Zarah. 

AND it came to pass at that time, that Ju'dah went down 
from his brethren, and "turned in to a certain A-dul'lam- 
ite, whose name was Hi'rah. 

2 And Ju'dah ''saw there a daughter of a certain Ca'naan-ite, 
whose name was ''Shu'ah; 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 ^O'nan. 

5 And she yet again conceived, and bare a son ; and called 
his name-'^She'lah : and he was at Che'zib, when she bare him. 

6 And Ju'dah "took a wife for Er, his firstborn, whose name 
was Ta'mar. 

7 And *Er, Ju'dah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of 
the Lord; *and the Lokd slew him. 



17 And the man said, They are departed hence : for I 
heard them say. Let us go to Do'than. And Jo'seph 
went after his brethren, and found them in Do'than. 

18 And they saw him afar off, and before he came near 
unto them, they conspired against him to slay him. 

19 And they said one to another. Behold, this 'dreamer 
20cometh. Come now therefore, and let us slay him, 

and cast him into one of the pits, and we will say. 
An evil beast hath devoured him : and we shall see 

21 what will become of his dreams. And Reu'ben heard 
it, and delivered him out of their hand; and said. Let 

22 us not take his life. And Reu'ben said unto them. 
Shed no blood ; cast him into this pit that is in the 
wilderness, but lay no hand upon him : that he 
might deliver him out of their hand, to restore him 

23 to his father. And it came to pass, when Jo'seph 
was come unto his brethren, that they stript Jo'seph 
of his coat, the coat of many colours that was on 

24 him ; and they took him, and cast him into the 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 traveling 
company of Ish'ma-el-ites came from Gil'e-ad, with 
their camels bearing ^spicery and ^balm and ^myrrh, 

26 going to carry it down to E'gypt. And Ju'dah 
said unto his brethren, what profit is it if we slay 

27 our brother and conceal his blood? Come, and let 
us sell him to the Ish'ma-el-ites, and let not our 
hand be upon him; for he is our brother, our flesh. 

28 And his brethren hearkened unto him. And there 
passed by Mid'i-an-ites, merchantmen ; and they drew 
and lifted up Jo'seph out of the pit, and sold Jo'seph 
to the Ish'ma-el-ites for twenty pieces of silver. 

29 And they brought Jo'seph into E'gypt. And Reu'- 
ben returned unto the pit; and, behold, Jo'seph was 

30 not in the pit ; and he rent his clothes. And he re- 
turned unto his brethren, and said. The child is not ; 

31 and I, whither shall I go ? And they took Jo'seph's 
coat, and killed a he-goat, and dipped the coat in the 

32 blood: 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 

33 not. And he knew it, and said. It is my son's 
coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Jo'seph is 

34 without doubt torn in pieces. And Ja'cob rent his 
garments, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and 

35 mourned for his son many days. And all his sons 
and all his daughters rose up to comfort him ; but 
he refused to be comforted; and he said. For I will 
go down to *the grave to my son mourning. And 

36 his father wept for him. And the '^Mid'i-an-ites sold 
him into E'gypt unto Pot'i-phar, an officer of 
Pha'raoh's, the 'captain of the guard. 

OC7 And it came to pass at that time, that Ju'dah went 

down from his brethren, and turned in to a certain 

2 A-dul'lam-ite, whose name was Hi'rah. And Ju'dah 

saw there a daughter of a certain Ca'naan-ite whose 

name was Shu'a ; and he took her, and went in unto 

3 her. And she conceived, and bare a son; and he 

4 called his name Er. And she conceived again, and 

5 bare a son ; and she called his name O'nan. And she 
yet again bare a son, and called his name She'lah : 

6 and he was at Che'zib, when she bare him. And 
Ju'dah took a wife for Er his firstborn, and her name 

7 was Ta'mar. And Er, Ju'dah's firstborn, was wicked 
in the sight of the Lord ; and the Lord slew him.

8 And Ju'dah said unto Cnan, Go in unto *tliy brother's 
wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. 

9 And O'nan 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 fdispleased the Loed : 
wherefore he slew '"him also. 

1 1 Then said Ju'dah to Ta'mar his daughter in law, "Remain 
a widow at thy father's house, till She'lah my son be grown : 
for he said, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brethren 
did. And Ta'mar went and dwelt °in her fathei^s house. 

12 And fin process of time, the daughter of Shu'ah Ju'- 
dah's wife died ; and Ju'dah "was comforted, and went up 
unto his sheepshearers to Tim'nath, he and his friend Hi' rah 
the Adul'lam-ite. 

13 And it was told Ta'mar, saying. Behold, thy father in 
law goeth up ^to Tim'nath, to shear his sheep. 

14 And she put her widow's garments off from her, and 
covered her with a veil, and wrapped herself, and 'sat in 
fan open place, which is by the way to Tim'nath ; for she 
saw 'that She'lah was grown, and she was not given unto 
him to wife. 

15 When Ju'dah saw her, he thought her to be a, 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 fa kid from the flock, 
find she said, ""Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it f 

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 veil 
from her, and put on the garments of her widowhood. 

20 And Ju'dah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the 
A-dul'lam-ite, to receive his pledge from the wonmn'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 Ju'dah, and said, I cannot find her ; 
and also the men of the place said, that there was no harlot 
in this place. 

23 And Ju'dah said. Let her take it to her, lest we fbe 
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 Ju'dah, saying, Ta'mar thy daughter in law hath 
'played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by 
whoredom. And Ju'dah 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 Ju'dah ''acknowledged them, and said, 'She hath 
been more righteous than I; because that •'^ I gave her not 
to She'lah 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 II 'Pha'rez. 



8 And Ju'dah said unto CKnan, Go in unto thy brother's 
wife, and 'perform the duty of an husband's brother 

9 unto her, and raise up seed to thy brother. And 
O'nan 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 he should 

10 give seed to his brother. And the thing which he 
did was evil in the sight of the Lord : and he slew 

11 him also. Then said Ju'dah to Ta'mar his daughter 
in law, Remain a widow in thy father's house, till 
She'lah my son be grown up : for he said. Lest he 
also die, like his brethren. And Ta'mar went and 

12 dwelt in her father's house. And in process of time 
Shu'a's daughter, the wife of Ju'dah, died ; and Ju'dah 
was comforted, and went up unto his sheepshearers 
to Tim'nah, he and his friend Hi' rah the A-dul'lam-ite 

13 And it was told Ta'mar, saying, Behold, thy father 

14 in law goeth up to Tim'nah to shear his sheep. And 
she put off from her the garments of her widowhood, 
and covered herself with her veil, and wrapped her 
self, and sat in the gate of E-na'im, which is by the 
way to Tim'nah : for she saw that She'lah was grown 

15 up, and she was not given unto him to wife. When 
Ju'dah saw her, he thought her to be an harlot ; for 

16 she had covered her face. 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 

17 give me, that thou mayest come in unto me ? And 
he said, I will send thee a kid of the goats from the 
flock. And she said. Wilt thou give me a pledge, 

18 till thou send it? And he said. What pledge shall 
I give thee ? And she said. Thy signet and thy 
cord, and thy staff that is in thine hand. And he 
gave them to her, and came in unto her, and she 

19 conceived by him. And she arose, and went away, 
and put off her veil from her, and put on the gar- 

20 ments of her widowhood. And Ju'dah sent the kid 
of the goats by the hand of his friend the A-dul'lam 
ite, to receive the pledge from the woman's hand : 

21 but he found her not. Then he asked the men of 
her place, saying. Where is the ^harlot, that was at 
E-na'im by the wayside ? And they said. There 

22 hath been no ^harlot here. And he returned to 
Ju'dah, and said, I have not found her ; and also the 
men of the place said. There hath been no %arlot 

23 here. And Ju'dah said. Let her take it to her, lest 
we be put to shame : behold, I sent this kid, and 

24 thou hast not found her. And it came to pass about 
three months after, that it was told Ju'dah, saying, 
Ta'mar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot ; 
and moreover, behold, she is with child by whore- 
dom. And Ju'dah said. Bring her forth, and let her 

25 be burnt. 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 the cords, and 

26 the staff. And Ju'dah acknowledged them, and 
said. She is more righteous than 1; forasmuch as 
I gave her not to She'lah my son. And he knew 

27 her again no more. And it came to pass in the 
time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her 

28 womb. And it came to pass, when she travailed, 
that one put out a hand : and the midwife took 
and bound upon his baud a scarlet thread, saying, 

29 This came out first. And it came to pass, as he drew 
back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out : 
and she said, ^Wherefore hast thou made a breach 
for thyself? therefore his name was called ^Pe'rez.

30 And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet 
thread upon his hand : and his name was called Za'rah. 
CFIAPTER XXXIX. 

Joseph in Potiphar^s house— He resisieth his mistress's temptation. 

AND Jo'seph was brought down to E'gypt ; and "Pot'i- 
phar, an officer of Pha'raoh, captain of the guard, an 
E-gyp'tian, 'bought him of the hands of the Ish'ma-el-ites, 
which had brought him down thither. 

2 And "the Lord was with Jo'seph, and he was a prosperous 
man ; and he was in the house of his master the E-gyp'tian. 

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 Jo'seph ^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 E-gyp'tian's house for Jo'seph'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 Jo'seph's hand ; and he 
knew not aught he had, save the bread which he did eat. 
And Jo'seph ''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 Jo'seph ; 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 ? 

IC And it came to pass, as she spake to Jo'seph 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 Jo'seph 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 the garment, saying, Lie with 
me : and ae 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 a He'brew unto 
us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I 
cried with a floud 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 He'brew 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 Jo'seph'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 Jo'seph, and fshewed him 
mercy, and 'gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of 
the prison. 

22 And the keeper of the prison 'committed to Jo'seph's 
hand all the prisoners that were in the prison ; and whatso- 
ever they did there, he was the doer of it. 



30 And afterward came out his brother, that had the 
scarlet thread upon his hand : and his name was 
called Ze'rah. 

^v And Jo'seph was brought down to E'gypt: and 
Pot'i-phar, an officer of Pha'raoh's, the captain of the 
guard, an E-gyp'tian, bought him of the hand of the 
Ish'ma-el-ites, which had brought him down thither. 

2 And the Lord was with Jo'seph, and he was a pros- 
perous man ; and he was in the house of his master 

3 the E-gyp'tian. And his master saw that the Lord 
was with him, and that the Lord made all that he 

4 did to prosper in his hand. And Jo'seph found 
grace in his sight, and he ministered unto him : and 
he made him overseer over his house, and all that 

5 he had he put into his hand. And it came to pass 
from the time that he made him overseer in his 
house, and over all that he had, that the Lord 
blessed the E-gyp'tian's house for Jo'seph's sake ; and 
the blessing of the Lord was upon all that he had, 

6 in the house and in the field. And he left all that 
he had in Jo'seph's hand ; and 'he knew not aught 
that was with him, save the bread which he did eat. 

7 And Jo'seph was comely, and well favoured. And 
it came to pass after these things, that his master's 
wife cast her eyes upon Jo'seph ; and she said, Lie 

8 with me. But he refused, and said unto his master's 
wife. Behold, my master ^knoweth not what is with 
me in the house, and he hath put all that he hath 

9 into my hand; '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 Jo'seph day by 
day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, 

11 or to be with her. And it came to pass about this 
time, that he went into the house to do his work ; 
and there was none of the men of the house there 

12 within. And she caught him by his garment, say 
ing. Lie with me : and he left his garment in her 

13 hand, and fled, and got him out. And it came to 
pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in 

14 her hand, and was fled forth, that she called unto 
the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying. 
See, he hath brought in an He'brew unto us to mocK 
us ; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried 

15 with a loud voice: and it came to pass, when he 
heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he 
left his garment by me, and fled, and got him out. 

16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his 

17 master came home. And she spake unto him ac- 
cording to these words, saying,*The He'brew serv- 
ant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in 

18 unto me to mock me : and it came to pa.ss, as I 
lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his gar- 

19ment by me, and fled out. And it came to pass, 
when his master heard the words of his wife, which 
she spake unto him, saying. After this manner did 

20 thy servant to me ; that his wrath was kindled And 
Jo'seph's master took him,and put him into the prison, 
the place where the king's prisoners were bound : 

21 and he was there in the prison. But the Lord was with 
Jo'seph, and shewed kindness unto him, and gave 
him iavour in the sight of the keeper of the prison. 

22 And the keeper of the prison committed to Jo'seph'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 Lokd was with him, and 
that which he did, the Loed made it to prosper. 
CHAPTER XL. 

The butler and baker of Pharaoh — Ingratitude of the butler, 

AND it came to pass after these things, that the "butler 
of the king of E'gypt and his baker had offended their 
lord the king of E'gypt. 

2 And Pha'raoh 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 Jo'seph was bound. 

4 And the captain of the guard charged Jo'seph 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 inter- 
pretation of his dream, the butler and the baker of the king 
of E'gypt, which were bound in the prison. 

6 And Jo'seph came in unto them in the morning, and 
looked upon them, and, behold, they were sad. 

7 And he asked Pha'raoh's officers that were with him in 
the ward of his lord's house, saying, Wherefore flook ye 
so sadly to-day? 

8 And they said unto him, ''We have dreamed a dream, and 
there is no interpreter of it. And Jo'seph said unto them, 'Do 
not interpretations belong to God ? tell me them, I pray you. 

9 And the chief butler told his dream to Jo'seph, 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 Pha'raoh's cup was in my hand: and I took the 
grapes, and pressed them into Pha'raoh's cup, and I gave 
the cup into Pha'raoh's hand. 

12 And Jo'seph said unto him, ■'^This is the interpretation 
of it : The three branches "are three days : 

13 Yet within three days shall Pha'raoh ''| | lift up thine head, 
and restore thee unto thy place; and thou shalt deliver 
Pha'raoh's cup into his hand, after the former manner when 
thou wast his butler. 

14 But t*think on me when it shall be well with thee, and 
'shew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention 
of me unto Pha'raoh, and bring me out of this house : 

15 For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the 
He'brews: '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 Jo'seph, 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 fbakemeats for Pha'raoh : and the birds did eat them 
out of the basket u^on my head. 

18 And Jo'seph answered and said, "This is the interpre- 
tation thereof: The three baskets are three days: 

19 "Yet within three days shall Pha'raoh || 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 Pha'- 
raoh's "birthday, that he "made a feast unto all his servants : 
and he "H lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the 
chief baker among his servants. 

21 And he 'restored the 'jhief butier unto his butlership 
again; and 'he gave the cup into Pha'raoh's hand: 

22 But he "hanged the chief baker: as Jo'seph had inter- 
preted to them. 

23 Yet did not the chief butier remember Jo'seph, but 
"fijrgat him. 



23 Tiie keeper of the prison looked not to anything that 
was under his hand, because the Lokd was with him ; 
and that which he did, the Lord made it to prosper. 

^^ And it came to pass after these things, that the 
butler of the king of E'gypt and his baker offended 

2 their lord the king of E'gypt. And Pha'raoh was 
wroth against his two officers, against the chief of 

3 the butlers, and again.st the chief of the bakers. And 
he put them in ward in the house of the captain of 
the guard, into the prison, the place where Jo'seph 

4 was bound. And the captain of the guard charged 
Jo'seph with them, and he ministered unto them : 

5 and they continued a season in ward. And they 
dreamed a dream both of them, each man his 
dream, in one night, each man according to the in 
terpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker 
of the king of E'gypt, which were bound in the 

6 prison. And Jo'seph came in unto them in the 
morning, and saw them, and, behold, they were 

7 sad. And he asked Pha'raoh's officers that were 
with him in the ward in his master's house, saying, 

8 Wherefore look ye so sadly to-day? And they 
said unto him. We have dreamed a dream, and 
there is none that can interpret it. And Jo'seph 
said unto them. Do not interpretations belong to 

9 God ? tell it me, I pray you. And the chief butler 

told his dream to Jo'seph, and said to him. In my 

10 dream, behold, a vine was before me; and in the 

vine were three branches: and it was as though it 

budded, and its blossoms shot forth; and the clus- 

11 ters thereof brought forth ripe grapes: and Pha'- 
raoh's cup was in my hand; and I took the grapes, 
and pressed them into Pha'raoh's cup, and I gave 

12 the cup into Pha'raoh's hand. And Joseph said 
unto him, This is the interpretation of it : the three 

13 branches are three days; within yet three days shall 
Pha'raoh lift up thine head, and restore thee unto 
thine office : and thou shalt give Pha'raoh's cup into 
his hand, after the former manner when thou wast 

14 his butler. But have me in thy remembrance when 
it shall be well with thee, and shew kindness, I pray 
thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pha'- 

15raoh, and bring me out of this house: for indeed I 
was stolen away out of the land of the He'brews ; 
and here also have I done nothing that they should 

16 put me into the dungeon. When the chief baker 
saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto 
Jo'seph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, three 

17 baskets of white bread were on my head: and in 
the uppermost basket there was of all manner of 
bakemeats for Pha'raoh ; and the birds did eat tliem 

18 out of the basket upon my head. And Jo'seph an- 
swered and said. This is the interpretation thereof: 

19 the three baskets are three days; within yet three 
days shall Pha'raoh lift up thy head from off thee, 
and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall 

20 eat thy flesh from off thee. And it came to pa.ss 
the third day, which was Pha'raoh's birthday, that 
he made a feast unto all his servants : and he lifted 
up the head of the chief butler and the head of the 

21 chief baker among his servants. And he restored 
the chief butler unto his butlership again ; and he 

22 gave the cup into Pha'raoh's hand : but he hanged 
the chief baker: as Jo'seph had interpreted to them. 

23 Yet did not the chief butler remember Jo'seph, but 
forgat him.

Pharaoh*! two dreams—Joseph inierpreteth them — the famine beginneth. 

AND it came to pass at the end of two full years, that 
Pha'raoh dreamed : and, behold, he stood by the river. 

2 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well 
favoured kine and fatfleshed ; and they fed in a meadow. 

3 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out 
of the river, ill favoured and leanfleshed ; and stood by the 
other kine upon the brink of the river. 

4 And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the 
seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pha'raoh awoke. 

5 And he slept and dreamed the second time : and, behold, 
seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, frank and good. 

6 And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east 
wind sprung up after them. 

7 And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and 
full ears. And Pha'raoh awoke : and, behold, it was a dream. 

8 And it came to pass in the morning "that his spirit was 
troubled; and he sent and called for all the ''magicians of 
E'gypt, and all the '^wise men thereof: and Pha'raoh told 
them his dream : but there was none that could interpret 
them unto Pha'raoh. 

9 '^Then spake the chief butler unto Pha'raoh, saying, I do 
remember my faults this day : 

10 Pha'raoh was'^wrothwith his servants,i''and put me inward 
in the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker : 

11 And ■'we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we 
dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his 
dream. 

12 And there was there with us a young man, a Hebrew, 
"servant to the captain of the guard ; and we told him, and 
he ''interpreted to us our dreams ; to each man according to 
his dream he did interpret. 

lo And it came to pass, 'as he interpreted to us, so it was; 
me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged. 

14 ^*Then Pha'raoh sent and called Jo'seph, and they 
'fbrought him hastily "out of the dungeon : and he shaved 
himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pha'raoh. 

15 And Pha'raoh said unto Jo'seph, I have dreamed a dream, 
and there is none that can interpret it : "and I have heard say 
of thee, that || thou canst understand a dream to interpret it. 

IG And Jo'seph answered Pha'raoh, saying, °It is not in me : 
"God shall give Pha'raoh an answer of peace. 

1 7 And Pha'raoh said unto Jo'seph, ""In my dream, behold, 
I stood upon the bank of the river : 

18 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, 
fatfleshed and well favoured ; and they fed in a meadow : 

19 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor 
and very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw 
in all the land of E'gypt for badness : 

20 And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the 
first seven fat kine : 

21 And when they had featen them up, it could not be 
known that they had eaten them ; but they were still ill 
favoured, as at the beginning. So I awoke. 

22 And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came 
up in one stalk, full and good : 

23 And, behold, seven ears, || withered, thin, and blasted 
with the east wind, sprung up after them : 

24 And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears : and 
""I told this unto the magicians; but there was none that 
could declare it to me. 

25 ^ And Jo'seph said unto Pha'raoh,The dream of Pha'raoh 
is one : 'God hath shewed Pha'raoh what he is about to do. 

26 The seven good kine are seven years ; and the seven 
good ears are seven years : the dream is one. 

27 And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up 
after them are seven years ; and the seven empty ears blasted 
with the east wind shall be 'seven years of famine. 



^*- And it came to pass at the end of two full years, 
that Pha'raoh dreamed : and, behold, he stood by 

2 the 'river. And, behold, there came up out of the 
river seven kine, well favoured and fetfleshed ; and 

3 they fed in the reed-grass. And, behold, seven 
other kine came up after them out of the river, ill 
favoured and leanfleshed ; and stood by the other 

4 kine upon the brink of the river. And the ill 
favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven 
well favoured and fat kine. So Pha'raoh awoke. 

5 And he slept and dreamed the second time : and, be- 
hold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, 

6 ^rank and good. And, behold, seven ears, thin and 
blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them. 

7 And the thin ears swallowed up the seven ^rank and 
full ears. And Pha'raoh awoke, and, behold, it was 

8 a dream. And it came to pass in the morning that 
his spirit was troubled : and he sent and called for 
all the 'magicians of E'gypt, and all the wise men 
thereof: and Pha'raoh told them his dream ; but 
there was none that could interpret them unto Pha'- 

9 raoh. Then spake the chief butler unto Pha'raoh, 

10 saying, I ^do remember my fiiults this day : Pha'raoh 
was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in 
the house of the captain of the guard, me and the 

11 chief baker: and we dreamed a dream in one night, 
I and he; we dreamed each man according to the 

12 interpretation of his dream. And there was with us 
there a young man, an He'brew, servant to the cap- 
tain of the guard ; and we told him, and he inter- 
preted to us our dreams ; to each man according to 

13 his dream he did interpret. And it came to pass, as 
he interpreted to us, so it was ; °me he restored unto 

14 mine office, and him he hanged. Then Pha'raoh 
sent and called Jo'seph, and they brought him hastily 
out of the dungeon : and he shaved himself, and 
changed his raiment, and came in unto Pha'raoh. 

15 And Pha'raoh said unto Jo'seph, I have dreamed a 
dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and 
I have heard say of thee, that when thou hearest a 

16 dream thou canst interpret it. And Jo'seph an- 
swered Pha'raoh, saying, It is not in me : God shall 

17giv Pha'raoh an answer of peace. And Pha'raoh 
spake unto Jo'seph, In my dream, behold, I stood 

18 upon the brink of the river: and, behold, there 
came "i out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and 

19 well favoured; and they fed in the reed-grass : and, 
behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor 

and very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I 

20 never sa,/ in all the land of E'gypt for badness : and 
the lean and ill favoured kine did eat up the first 

21 seven fat kine : and when they had eaten them up, 
it coul'^ lot be known that they had eaten them ; 
but they were still ill favoured, as at the beginning. 

22 So I awoke. And I saw in my dream, and, behold, 

23 seven ears came up upon one stalk, full and good : and, 
behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with 

24 the .east wind, sprung up after them : and the thin 
ears swallowed up the seven good ears : and I told 
it unto the magicians ; but there was none that could 

25 declare it to me. And Jo'seph said unto Pha'raoh, 
The dream of Pha'raoh is one : what God is about to 

26 do he hath declared unto Pha'raoh. The seven good 
kine are seven years ; and the seven good ears are seven 

27 years : the dream is one. And the seven lean and ill 
favoured kine that came up after them are seven 
years, and also the seven empty ears blasted with 
the east wind ; they shall be seven years of &mine.

28 "This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pha'raoh : 
What God is about to do he sheweth unto Pha'raoh. 

29 Behold, there come ^seven years of great plenty 
throughout all the land of E'gypt : 

30 And there shall "arise after them seven years of famine ; 
and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of E'gypt ; 
and the famine "shall consume the land ; 

31 And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason 
of that famine following; for it shall be very fgrievous. 

32 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pha'raoh 
twice; it is because the "thing is \\ established by God, and 
God will shortly bring it to pass. 

33 Now therefore let Pha'raoh look out a man discreet and 
wise, and set him over the land of E'gypt. 

34 Let Pha'raoh do this, and let him appoint || officers over 
the land, and ''take up the fifth part of the land of E'gypt 
in the seven plenteous years. 

35 And "let them gather all the food of those good years 
that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pha'raoh, and 
let them keep food in the cities. 

36 And that food shall be for store to the land against the 
seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of E'gypt ; 
that the land fperish not through the famine. 

37 ^And 'the thing was good in the eyes of Pha'raoh, and 
in the eyes of all his servants. 

38 And Pha'raoh said unto his servants. Can we find such a 
one as this is, a man •'^in whom the spirit of God is? 

39 And Pha'raoh said unto Jo'seph, Forasmuch as God 
hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise 
as thou art: 

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

41 And Pha'raoh said unto Jo'seph, See I have *set thee 
over all the land of E'gypt. 

42 And Pha'raoh 'took ofP his ring from his hand, and put 
it upon Jo'seph's hand, and *arrayed him in vestures of || fine 
linen, 'and put a gold chain about his neck ; 

43 And he made him to ride in the second chariot which 
he had; "and they cried before him, || fBow the knee: and 
he made him ruler "over all the land of E'gypt. 

44 And Pha'raoh said unto Jo'seph, I am Pha'raoh, and 
without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the 
land of E'gypt. 

45 And Pha raoh called Jo'seph's name 1 1 Zaph'nath-pa-a-ne'ah; 
and he gave him to wife As'e-nath the daughter of Pot'i-phe-rah 
llpriestof On. And Jo'seph went out over a/Z the landof E'gypt. 

46 ^And Jo'seph was thirty years old when he "stood before 
Pha'raoh king of E'gypt. And Jo'seph went out from the pres- 
ence of Pha'raoh, and went throughout all the land of E'gypt. 

47 And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought 
forth by handfuls. 

48 And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, 
which were in the land of E'gypt, and laid up the food in 
the cities: the food of the field, which was round about 
every city, laid he up in the same. 

49 And Jo'seph gathered corn ""as the sand of the sea, very 
much, until he left numbering; for it was without number. 

50 'And unto Jo'seph were born two sons before the years 
of famine came: which As'e-nath the daughter of Pot'i- 
phe-rah II priest of On bare unto him. 

51 And Jo'seph called the name of the firstborn ||Ma-nas'- 
seh : For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and 
all my father's hou.se. 

52 And the name of the second called he ||E'phra-im: For God 
hath caused me to be "^fruitful in the land of my affliction. 

53 ^And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in 
the land of E'gypt, were ended. 

54 'And the seven years of dearth began to come, 'ac- 



28 That is the thing which I spake unto Pha'raoh : what 
God is about to do he hatn shewed unto Pha'raoh. 

29 Behold, there come seven years of great plenty 
30 throughout all the land of E'gypt: and there shall 

arise after them seven years of famine ; and all the 
plenty shall be forgotten in the land of E'gypt ; and 

31 the famine shall consume the land ; and the plenty 
shall not be known in the land by reason of that 
famine which followeth; for it shall be very griev- 

32ous. And for that the dream was doubled unto 
Pha'raoh twice, it is because the thing "is established 
by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass. 

33 Now therefore let Pha'raoh look out a man discreet 

34 and wise, and set him over the land of E'gypt. Let 
Pha'raoh do this, and let him appoint overseers over 
the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of 

35 E'gypt in the seven plenteous years. And let them 
gather all the food of these good years that come, 
and lay up corn under the hand of Pha'raoh for food 

36 in the cities, and let them keep it. And the food 
shall be for a store to the land against the seven 
years of famine, which shall be in the land of 
E'gypt; that the land perish not through the fam 

37 ine. And the thing was good in the eyes of Pha' 

38 raoh, and in the eyes of all his servants. And Pha' 
raoh said unto his servants. Can we find such a one 

39 as this, a man in whom the spirit of God is ? And 
Pha'raoh said unto Jo'seph, Forasmuch as God hath 
shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and 

40 wise as thou: thou shalt be over my house, and 
according unto thy word shall all my people 'be 
ruled : only in the throne will I be greater than 

41 thou. And Pha'raoh said unto Jo'seph, See, I have 

42 set thee over all the land of E'gypt. And Pha'raoh 
took off his signet ring from his hand, and put it 
upon Jo'seph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of 
^fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck ; 

43 and he made him to ride in the second chariot 
which he had; and they cried before him, 'Bow 
the knee: and he set him over all the land of 

44 E'gypt. And Pha'raoh said unto Jo'seph, I am 
Pha'raoh, and without thee shall no man lift up 

45 his hand or his foot in all the land of E'gypt. And 
Pha'raoh called Jo'seph's name Zaph'e-nath-pa-ne'ah ; 
and he gave him to wife As'e-nath the daughter of 
Pot'i-phe-ra priest of On. And Jo'seph went out 

46 over the land of E'gypt. And Jo'seph was thirty 
years old when he stood before Pha'raoh king of 
E'gypt. And Jo'seph went out from the presence of 
Pha'raoh, and went throughout all the land of E'gypt. 

47 And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought 

48 forth by handfuls. And he gathered up all the food 
of the seven years which were in the land of E'gypt, 
and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the 
field, which was round about every city, laid he up 

49 in the same. And Jo'seph laid up corn as the sand 
of the sea, very much, until he left numbering ; for 

50 it was without number. And unto Jo'seph were 
born two sons before the year of famine came, 
which As'e-nath the daughter of Pot'i-phe-ra priest 

51 of On bare unto him. And Jo'seph called the 
name of the firstborn *Ma-nas'seh: For, said he, 
God hath made me forget all my toil, and all my 

52 father's house. And the name of the second called 
he °E'phra-im : For God hath made me fruitful in the 

53 land of my afiliction. And the seven years of plenty, 
that was in the land of E'gypt, came to an end.

cording as Jo'seph had said : and the dearth was in all 
lands; but in all the land of E'gypt there was bread. 

55 And when all the land of E'gypt was famished, the 
people cried to Pha'raoh for bread : and Pha'raoh said unto 
all the E-gyp'tians, Go unto Jo'seph ; what he saith to you, do. 

56 And the famine was over all the face of the earth : and 
Jo'seph opened fall the storehouses, and "sold unto the 
E-gyp'tians ; and the famine waxed sore in the land of E'gypt. 

57 ^And all countries came into E'gypt to Jo'seph for to 
buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands. 

CHAPTER XLII. 

Jacob sendeth his ten sons to buy corn — They are imprisoned by Joseph. 

"IVrOW when "Ja'cob saw that there was corn in E'gypt, 
i- 1 Ja'cob said unto his sons,Why do ye look one upon another? 

2 And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is corn in 
E'gypt : get you down thither, and buy for us from thence ; 
that we may 'live, and not die. 

3 ^ And Jo'seph's ten brethren went down to buy corn in 
E'gypt. 

4 But Ben'ja-miu, Jo'seph's brother, Ja'cob sent not with his 
brethren : for he said, ''Lest peradventure mischief befall him. 

5 And the sons of Is'ra-el came to buy corn among those 
that came ; for the famine was ''in the land of Ca'naan. 

6 And Jo'seph was the governor 'over the land, and he it 
waa that sold to all the people of the land : and Jo'seph's 
brethren came, and -^bowed down themselves before nim 
with their faces to the earth. 

7 And Jo'seph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but 
made himself strange unto them, and spake froughly unto 
them ; and he said unto them, Whence come ye ? And 
they said, From the land of Ca'naan to buy food. 

8 And Jo'se^ h knew his brethren, but they knew not him. 

9 And Jo'seph 'remembered the dreams which he dreamed 
of them, and said unto them. Ye are spies ; to see the naked- 
ness of the land ye are come. 

10 And they said unto him. Nay, my lord, but to buy food 
are thy servants come. 

11 We are all one man's sons; we are true men; thy 
servants are no spies. 

12 And he said unto them. Nay, but to see the nakedness 
of the land ye are come. 

13 And they said. Thy servants are twelve brethren, the 
sons of one man in the land of Ca'naan ; and, behold, the 
youngest is this day with our father, and one ''is not. 

14 And Jo'seph said unto them. That is it that I spake 
unto you, saying, Ye are spies : 

1 5 Hereby ye shall be proved: 'By the life of Pha'raoh ye shall 
not go forth hence, except your youngest brother come hither. 

16 Send one of you, and let him fetch your brother, and 
ye shall be fkept in prison, that your words may be proved, 
whether there be any truth in you : or else by the life of 
Pha'raoh, surely ye are spies. 

17 And he tput them all together into ward three days. 

18 And Jo'seph said unto them the third day. This do, and 
live ; ''for I tear God : 

19 If ye be true men, let one of your brethren be bound in 
the house of your prison : go ye, carry corn for the famine 
of your houses : 

20 But 'bring your youngest brother unto -t ; so shall vour 
words be verified, and ye shall not die. And they did so. 

21 "[[And they said one to another, "We are verily guilty 
concerning our brother, in that we saw the anguish of his 
soul, when he besought us, and we would not hear ; "there- 
fore is this distress come upon us. 

22 And Reu'ben answered them, saying, "Spake I not unto 
you, saying, Do not sin against the child ; and ye would not 
hear ? therefore, behold, also his blood is "required. 

23 And tkey knew not that Jo'seph understood them; for 
the spake unto them by an interpreter. 



cording as Jo'seph had said : and there was famine 
in all lands ; but in all the land of E'gypt there was 

55 bread. And when all the land of E'gypt was fam- 
ished, the people cried to Pha'raoh for bread : and 
Pha'raoh said unto all the E-gyp'tians, Go unto Jo'- 

56seph; what he saith to you, do. And the famine 
was over all the face oi the earth : and Jo'seph 
opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the 
E-gyp'tians ; and the famine was sore in the land 

57 of E'gj'pt. And all countries came into E'gypt to 
Jo'seph for to buy corn ; because the famine was 
sore in all the earth. 

^^ Now Ja'cob saw that there was corn in E'gypt, 

and Ja'cob said unto his sons. Why do ye look one 

2 upon another? And he said. Behold, I have heard 

that there is com in E'gypt : get you down thither, 

and buy for us from thence ; that we may live, and 

3 not die. And Jo'seph's ten brethren went down to 

4 buy corn from E'gypt. But Ben'ja-min, Jo'seph's 
brother, Ja'cob sent not with his brethren ; for he 

5 said. Lest peradventure mischief befall him. And the 
sons of Is'rael came to buy among those that came : for 

6 the famine was in the laud of Ca'naan. And Jo'seph 
was the governor over the land : he it was that sold 
to all the people of the land : and Jo'seph's brethren 
came, and bowed down themselves to him with their 

7 faces to the earth. And Jo'seph saw his brethren, 
and he knew them, but made nimself strange unto 
them, and spake roughly with them ; and he said 
unto them, Whence come ye ? And they said. From 

8 the land of Ca'naan to buy food. And Jo'seph knew his 

9 brethren, but they knew not him. And Jo'seph re 
membered the dreams which he dreamed of them, 
and said unto them. Ye are spies; to see the naked 

lOness of the land ye are come. And they said unto 
him, Nay, my lord, but to buy food are thy servants 

11 come. We are all one man's sons; we are true 

12 men, thy servants are no spies. And he said unto 
them. Nay, but to see the nakedness of the land ye 

13 are come. And they said. We thy servants are 
twelve brethren, the sons of one man in the land of 
Ca'naan ; and, behold, the youngest is this day with 

14 our father, and one is not. And Jo'seph said unto 
them. That is it that I spake unto you, saying. Ye 

15 are spies : hereby ye shall be proved : by the life of 
Pha'raoh ye shall not go forth hence, except your 

16 youngest brother come hither. Send one of you 
and let him fetch your brother, and ye shall be 
bound, that your words may be proved, whether 
there be truth in you : or else by the life of Pha'raoh 

17 surely ye are spies. And he put them altogether 

18 into ward three days. And Jo'seph said unto them 
the third day, This do, and live ; for I fear God : 

19 if ye be true men, let one of your brethren be bound 
in your prison house ; but go ye, carry corn for the 

20 famine of your houses: and bring your youngest 
brother unto me ; so shall your words be verified, 

21 and ye shall not die. And they did so. And they 
said one to another. We are verily guilty concerning 
our brother, in that we saw the distress of his soul, 
when he besought us, and we would not hear ; 

22 therefore is this distress come upon us. And Reu'- 
ben answered them, saying. Spake I not unto you, 
saying. Do not sin against the child ; and ye would 
not hear? therefore also, behold, his blood is re- 

23 quired. And they knew not that Jo'seph understood 
them; for there was an interpreter between them.

24 And he turned himself about from them, and wept; 
and returned to them again, and communed with them, and 
took from them Sim'e-on, and bound him before their eyes. 

25 ^Then Jo'seph commanded to fill their sacks with corn, 
and to restore every man's money into his sack, and to give 
them provision for the way : and 'thus did he unto them. 

26 And they laded their asses with the corn, and departed 
thence. 

27 And as ''one of them opened his sack to give his ass 
provender in the inn, he espied his money ; for, behold, it 
was in his sack's mouth. 

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

29 ^And they came unto Ja'cob their father unto the land 
of Ca'naan, and told him all that befell unto them ; saying, 

30 The man, who is the lord of the land, 'spake f roughly 
to us, and took us for spies of the country. 

31 And we said unto him. We are true men; we are no spies : 

32 We be twelve brethren, sons of our father : one is not, and 
the youngest is this day with our father in the land of Ca'naan. 

33 And the man, the lord of the country, said unto us, 
'Hereby shall I know that ye are true men; leave one of 
your brethren here with me, and take food for the famine of 
your households, and begone : 

34 And bring your youngest brother unto me : then shall 
I know that ye are no spies, but that ye are true men : so will 
I deliver you your brother, and ye shall "traffick in the land. 

35 ^And it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, that, 
behold, ^every man's bundle of money was in his sack : and 
when both they and their father saw the bundles of money, 
they were afraid. 

36 And Ja'cob their father said unto them. Me have ye 
"bereaved of my children : Jo'seph is not, and Sim'e-on is 
not, and ye will take Ben'ja-min away : all these things are 
against me. 

37 And Reu'ben spake unto his father, saying, Slay my 
two sons, if I bring him not to thee : deliver him into my 
hand, and I will bring him to thee again. 

38 And he said. My son shall not go down with you ; for 
"'his brother is dead, and he is left alone : "if mischief befall 
him by the way in the which ye go, then shall ye 'bring 
down my gray hairs Avith sorrow to the grave.

AND the famine was "sore in the land. 
2 And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the 
corn which they had brought out of E'gypt, their father said 
unto them. Go again, buy us a little food. 

3 And Ju'dah spake unto him, saying. The man fdid 
solemnly protest unto us, saying. Ye shall not see my face, 
except your ''brother be with you. 

4 If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down 
and buy thee food : 

5 But if thou wilt not send him, we will not go down : for 
the man said unto us. Ye shall not see my face, except your 
brother be with you. 

6 And Is'ra-el said, Wherefore dealt ye so ill with me, as to 
tell the man whether ye had yet a brother? 

7 And they said. The man fasked us straitly of our state, 
and of our kindred, saying. Is your father yet alive ? have 
ye another brother? and we told him according to the ftenor 
of these words : f Could we certainly know that he would 
say, Bring your brother down ? 

8 And Ju'dah said unto Is'ra-el his father. Send the lad 
with me, and we will arise and go ; that we may live, and 
not die, both we, and thou, and also our little ones. 

9 I will be surety for him ; of my hand shalt thou require 



24 And he turned himself about from them, and wept ; 
and he returned to them, and spake to them, and 
took Sim'e-on from among them,^and bound him be- 

25 fore their eyes. Then Jo'seph commanded to fill their 
vessels with corn, and to restore every man's money 
into his sack, and to give them provision for the way : 

26 and thus was it done unto them. And they laded 
their asses with their corn, and departed thence. 

27 And as one of them opened his sack to give his ass 
provender in the lodging place, he espied his money ; 

28 and, behold, it was in the mouth of his sack. 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 turned trembling one to another, 
saying. What is this that God hath done unto us ? 

29 And they came unto Ja'cob tlieir father unto the land 
of Ca'naan, and told him all that had befallen them ; 

30 saying. The man, the lord of the land, spake roughly 

31 with us, and took us for spies of the country. And 
we said unto him. We are true men ; we are no 

32 spies : we be twelve brethren, sons of our father ; 
one is not, and the youngest is this day with our 

33 father in the land of Ca'naan. And the man, the 
lord of the land, said unto us, Hereby shall I know 
that ye are true men ; leave one of your brethren 
with me, and take corn for the famine of your houses, 

34 and go your way : and bring your youngest brother 
unto me: then shall I know that ye are no spies, 
but that ye are true men: so will I deliver you 

35 your brother, and ye shall traffick in the land. And 
it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, that, 
behold, every man's bundle of money was in his 
sack : and when they and their father saw their 

36 bundles of money, they were afraid. And Ja'cob 
their father said unto them, Me have ye bereaved 
of my children : Jo'seph is not, and Sim'e-on is not, 
and ye will take Ben'ja-min away: all these things 

37 are 'against me. And Reu'ben spake unto his father, 
saying, Slay my two sons if I bring him not to thee : 
deliver him into my hand, and I will bring him to 

38 thee again. And he said. My son shall not go down 
with you; for his brother is dead, and he only is 
left : if mischief befall him by the way in the which 
ye go, then shall ye bring down my gray hairs with 
sorrow to ^the grave. 



iAnd the famine was sore in the land. And it 



48 

came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn 
which they had brought out of E'gypt, their father 

3 said unto them, Go again, buy us a little food. And 
Ju'dah spake unto him, saying, The man did sol- 
emnly protest unto us, saying, Ye shall not see my 

4 face, except your brother be with you. If thou 
wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and 

5 buy thee food : but if thou wilt not send him, we 
will not go down : for the man said unto us. Ye 
shall not see my face, except your brother be with 

6 you. And Is'ra-el said, Wherefore dealt ye so ill with 
me, as to tell the man whether ye had yet a brother ? 

7 And they said, The man asked straitly concerning 
ourselves, and concerning our kindred, saying. Is 
your father yet alive ? have ye another brother ? and 
we told him according to the tenor of these words: 
could we in any wise know that he would say, 

8 Bring your brother down? And Ju'dah said unto 
Is'ra-el his father. Send the lad with me, and we 
will arise and go; that we may live, and not die,

be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require

then let me bear the blame for ever: 

10 For except we had lingered, surely now we had re- 
turned II this second time. 

11 And their father Is'ra-el said unto them, If it must be so 
now, do this; take of the best fruits in the land in your 
vessels, and ''carry down the man a present, a little ^balm, 
and a little honey, spices and myrrh, nuts and almonds : 

12 And take double money in your hand; and the money 
•'^that was brought again in the mouth of your sacks, carry 
it again in your hand ; peradventure it was an oversight: 

13 Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the 
man : 

14 And God Almighty give you mercy before the man, 
that he may send away your other brother, and Ben'ja-min. 
"11 If I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved. 

15 ^And the men took that present, and they took double 
money in their hand, and Ben'ja-min ; and rose up, and went 
down to E'gypt, and stood before Jo'seph. 

16 And when Jo'seph saw Ben'ja-min with them, he said to 
the ''ruler of his house. Bring these men home, and fslay, 
and make ready ; for these men shall fdine with me at noon. 

17 And the man did as Jo'seph bade ; and the man brought 
the men into Jo'seph's house. 

18 And the men were afraid, because they were brought 
into Jo'seph'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 fseek occasion against us, and fall 
upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses. 

19 And they came near to the steward of Jo'seph's house, 
and they communed with him at the door of the house, 

20 And said, O, sir, 'fwe came indeed down at the first 
time to buy food : 

21 And *it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that 
we opened our sacks, and, behold, every man's money was 
in the mouth of his sack, our money in full weight : and 
we have brought it again in our hand. 

22 And other money have we brought down in our hands 
to buy food : we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks. 

23 And he said. Peace be to you, fear not : your God, and 
the God of your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks : 
fl had your money. And he brought Sim'e-on out unto them. 

24 And the man brought the men into Jo'seph's house, and 
'gave them water, and they washed their feet; and he gave 
their asses provender. 

25 And they made ready the present against Jo'seph came 
at noon : for they heard that they should eat bread there. 

26 ^And when Jo'seph came home, they brought him the 
present which was in their hand into the house, and "bowed 
themselves to him to the earth. 

27 And he asked them of their fwelfare, and said, fls your 
father well, the old man "of whom ye spake ? Is he yet alive ? 

28 And they answered. Thy servant our father is in good 
health, he is yet alive. "And they bowed down their heads, 
and made obeisance. 

29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Ben'ja-min, 
"his 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. 

30 And Jo'seph made haste; for; 'his bowels did yearn 
upon his brother : and he sought where to weep ; and he 
entered into his chamber, and 'wept there. 

31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained 
himself, and said. Set on 'bread. 

32 And they set on for hiin by himself, and for them by 
themselves, and for the E-gyp'tians. which did eat with 
him, by themselves : because the E-gyp'tians might not eat 
bread with the He'brews; for that is "an abomination unto 
the E-gyp'tians. 



him : if I bring him not unto thee, and set him before 

10 thee, then 'let me bear the blame for ever : for ex- 
cept we had lingered, surely we had now returned a 

11 second time. And their father Is'ra-el said unto 
them, If it be so now, do this; take of the choice 
fruits of the land in your vessels, and carry down 
the man a present, a little ^balm, and a little honey, 

12spicery and myrrh, ^nuts, and almonds: and take 
double money in your hand ; and the money that 
was returned in the mouth of your sacks carry 
again in your hand ; peradventure it was an over- 

13 sight: take also your brother, and arise, go again 

14 unto the man : and ^God Almighty give you mercy 
before the man, that he may release unto you your 
other brother and Ben'ja-min. And if I be bereaved 
of my children, I am bereaved. 

15 And the men took that present, and they took 
double money in their hand, and Ben'ja-min ; and 
rose up, and went down to E'gypt, and stood before 

16 Jo'seph. And when Jo'seph saw Ben'ja-min with them, 
he said to the steward of his house. Bring the men 
into the house, and slay, and make ready ; for the 

17 men shall dine with me at noon. And the man did 
as Jo'seph bade ; and the man brought the men into 

18 Jo'seph's house. And the men were afraid, because 
they were brought into Jo'seph'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, 

19 and take us for bondmen, and our asses. And they 
came near to the steward of Jo'seph's house, and 

20 they spake unto him at the door of the house, and 
said, Oh my lord, we came indeed down at the first 

21 time to buy food : and it came to pass, when we 
came to the lodging place, that we opened our 
sacks, and, behold, every man's money was in the 
mouth of his sack, our money in full weight: and 

22 we have brought it again in our hand. And other 
money have we brought down in our hand to buy 
food : we know not who put our money in our 

23 sacks. And he said. Peace be to you, fear not : your 
God, and the God of your father, hath given you 
treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And 

24 he brought Sim'e-on out unto them; And the man 
brought the men into Jo'seph's house, and gave them 
water, and they washed their feet; and he gave 

25 their asses provender. And they made ready the 
prfsent against Jo'seph came at noon : for they heard 

26 that they should eat bread there. And when Jo'seph 
came home, they brought him the present which was 
in their hand into the house, and bowed down them- 

27 selves to him to the earth. And he asked them of 
their welfare, and said. Is your father well, the old 

28 man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive? And 
they said. Thy servant our father is well, he is yet 
alive. And they bowed the head, and made obei- 

29 sance. And he lifted up his eyes, and saw Ben'ja-min 
his brother, his mother's son, and said. Is this your 
youngest brother, of whom ye spake unto me? And 

30 he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son. And Jo'- 
seph made haste ; for his bowels did yearn upon his 
brother: and he sought where to weep; and he en- 

31tered into his chamber, and wept there. And he 
washed his face, and came out ; and he refrained him- 

32 self, and said. Set on bread. And they set on for him 
by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the 
E-gyp'tians, which did eat with him, by themselves: be-

CHAPTER XLIV. 

Joseph's policy to stay fits brethren— Judah' s humble supplication to Joseph. 

AND he commandedfthe steward of his house, saying, Fill 
the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, 
and put every man's money in his sack's mouth. 

2 And 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 Jo'seph had spoken. 

3 As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent 
away, they and their asses. 

4 And when they were gone out of the city, and not yd 
far off, Jo'seph said unto his steward. Up, follow after the 
men; and when thou dost overtake them, say unto them, 
Wherefore have ye rewarded evil for good? 

5 Is not this it in which my lord drinketh, and whereby 
indeed he || divineth? ye have done evil in so doing. 

6 ^And he overtook them, and he spake unto them these 
same words. 

7 And they said unto him, Wherefore saith my lord these 
words ? God forbid that thy servants should do according 
to this thing : 

8 Behold, "the. money, which we found in our sacks' mouths, 
we brought again unto thee out of the land of Ca'naan : how 
then should we steal out of thy lord's house silver or gold ? 

9 With whomsoever of thy servants it be found, 'both let 
him die, and we also will be my lord's bondmen. 

10 And he said. Now also Id it he according unto your 
words : he with whom it is found shall be my servant ; and 
ye shall be blameless. 

11 Then they speedily took down every man his sack to 
the ground, and opened every man his sack. 

12 And he searched, and began at the eldest, and left at 
the youngest : and the cup was found in Ben'ja-min's sack. 

13 Then they "rent their clothes, and laded every man his 
ass, and returned to the city. 

14 ^And Ju'dah and his brethren came to Jo'seph's house ; 
for he was yet there : and they ''fell before him on the ground. 

1 5 And Jo'seph said unto them, What deed is this that ye have 
done ? wot ye not that such a man as I can certainly || divine ? 

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

17 And he said, ■'^God forbid that I should do so : hut the 
man in whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant ; 
and as for you, get up in peace unto your father. 

18 ^Then Ju'dah came near unto him, and said, O 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 as Pha'raoh. 

19 My lord asked his servants, saying, Have ye a father, 
or a brother? 

20 And we said unto my lord. We have a father, an old 
man. and ''a child of his old age, a little one : and his brother 
la dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father 
loveth him. 

21 And thou saidst unto thy servants, 'Bring him down 
unto me, that I may set mine eyes upon him. 

22 And we said unto my lord. The lad can not leave his 
father : for if he should leave his father, Im father would die. 

23 And thou saidst unto thy servants, ^Except your 



33 And they sat before him, the firstborn according to 
his birthright, and the youngest according to his 
youth : and the men marvelled one with another. 

34 And 'he took and sent messes unto them from be- 
fore him: but Ben'ja-min's mess was five times so 
much as any of theirs. And they drank, and Vere 
merry with him. 

^*^ And he commanded the steward of his house, 
saying, Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as 
they can carry, and put every man's money in his 

2 sack's mouth. And 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 

3 Jo'seph had spoken. As soon as the morning was 
light, the men were sent away, they and their asses. 

4 And when they were gone out of the city, and were 
not yet far off, Jo'seph said unto his steward. Up, 
follow after the men ; and when thou dost overtake 
them, say unto them. Wherefore have ye rewarded 

5 evil for good? Is not this it in which my lord 
drinketh, and whereby he indeed divineth? ye have 

6 done evil in so doing. And he overtook them, and 

7 he spake unto them these words. And they said 
unto him. Wherefore speaketh my lord such words 
as these? God forbid that thy servants should do 

8 such a thing. Behold, the money, which we found 
in our sacks' mouths, we brought again unto thee 
out of the land of Ca'naan : how then should we 

9 steal out of thy lord's house silver or gold ? With 
whomsoever of thy sei-vants it be found, let him die, 

10 and we also will be my lord's bondmen. And he 
said, Now also let it be according unto your words : 
he with whom it is found shall be my bondman; 

Hand ye shall be blameless. Then they hasted, and 
took down every man his sack to the ground, and 

12 opened every man his sack. And he searched, and 
began at the eldest, and left at the youngest: and 

13 the cup was found in Ben'ja-min's sack. Then they 
rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and 

14 returned to the city. And Ju'dah and his brethren 
came to Jo'seph's house ; and he was yet there : and 

15 they fell before him on the ground. And Jo'seph 
said unto them. What deed is this that ye have done ? 
know ye not that such a man as I can indeed divine ? 

16 And Ju'dah said. What shall we say unto my lord ? 
what shall we speak? or how shall we clear our- 
selves? God hath found out the iniquity of thy 
servants: behold, we are my lord's bondmen, both 
we, and he also in whose hand the cup is found. 

17 And he said, God forbid that I should do so: the 
man in whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my 
bondman ; but as for you, get you up in peace unto 
your father. 

18 Then Ju'dah <Jame 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 as Pha'raoh. 

19 My lord asked his servants, saying, Have ye a father, 
20 or a brother? And we said unto my lord. We have 

a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a 
little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is 

21 left of his mother, and his father loveth him. And 
thou saidst unto thy servants. Bring him down unto 

22 me, that I may set mine eyes upon him. And we said 
unto my lord. The lad can not leave his father : for 
if he should leave his father, his fiither would die.

youngest brother come down with you, ye shall see my 
face no more. 

24 And it came to pass, when we came up unto thy servant 
my father, we told him the words of my lord. 

25 And 'our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food. 

26 And we said. We cannot go down : if our youngest 
brother be with us, then we will go down : for we may not 
see the man's face, except our youngest brother be with us. 

27 And thy servant my father said unto us. Ye know that 
"my wife bare me two sons : 

28 And the one went out from me, and I said, "Surely he 
is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since : 

29 And if ye "take this also from me,and mischief befall him, 
ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave. 

30 Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, 
and the lad be not with us ; seeing that "his life is bound 
up in the lad's life ; 

31 It shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not 
with MS,that he will die : and thy servants shall bring down the 
gray hairs of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave. 

32 For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my 
father, saying, 'If I bring him not unto thee, then I shall 
bear the blame to my father for ever. 

33 Now therefore, I pray thee, 'let thy servant abide in- 
stead of the lad a bondman to my lord ; and let the lad go 
up with his brethren. 

34 For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not 
with me ? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall f come 
on my father. 

CHAPTER XLV. 

Joseph maieth himself known to his brethren — He sendeth for his father. 

THEN Jo'seph could not refrain himself before all them 
that stood by him ; and he cried. Cause every man to go 
out from me. And there stood no man with him, while 
Jo'seph made himself known unto his brethren. 

2 And he fwept aloud : and the E-gyp'tians and the house 
of Pha'raoh heard. 

3 And Jo'seph said unto his brethren, "I am, Jo'seph ; doth 
my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer 
him; for they were || troubled at his presence. 

4 And Jo'seph said unto his brethren. Come near to me, I 
pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Jo'seph 
your brother, 'whom ye sold into E'gypt. 

5 Now therefore "be not grieved, fnor angry with your- 
selves, that ye sold me hither : ''for God did send me before 
you to preserve life. 

6 For these two years hath the famine been in the land : 
and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither 
be earing nor harvest. 

7 And God sent me before you fto preserve you a poster- 
ity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. 

8 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God : 
and he hath made me *a father to Pha'raoh, and lord of all 
his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of E'gypt. 

9 Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him. 
Thus saith thy son Jo'seph, God hath made me lord of all 
E'gypt : come down unto me, tarry not : 

10 And -^thou shalt dwell in the land of Go'shen, and thou 
shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy chil- 
dren's children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that 
thou hast : 

11 And there will I nourish thee ; for yet there are five 
years of famine ; lest thou and thy household, and all that 
thou hast, come to poverty. 

12 And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother 
Ben'ja-min, that it is "my mouth that speaketh unto you. 

1 3 And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in E'gypt, 
and of all that ye have seen ; and ye shall haste and 'bring 
down my father hither. 



youngest brother come down with you, ye shall see 

24 my face no more. And it came to pass when we came 
up unto thy servant my father, we told him the words 

25 of my lord. And our father said. Go again, buy us a 

26 little food. And we said. We cannot go down : if our 
youngest brother be with us, then will we go down : 
for we may not see the man's face, except our young- 

27 est brother be with us. And thy servant my father 
said unto us. Ye know that my wife bare me two 

28 sons : and the one went out from me, and I said. 
Surely he is torn in pieces ; and I have not seen 

29 him since : and if ye take this one also from me, 
and mischief befall him, ye shall bring down my 

30 gray hairs with 'sorrow to ^the grave. Now there- 
fore when I come to thy servant my father, and the 
lad be not with us ; seeing that ^his life is bound up 

31 in the lad's life ; it shall come to pass, when he 
seeth that the lad is not vAth us, that he will die : 
and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of 
thy servant our father with sorrow to ^the grave. 

32 For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my 
father, saying. If I bring him not unto thee, then 

33 shall I bear the blame to my father for ever. Now 
therefore, let thy servant, I pray thee, abide instead 
of the lad a bondman to my lord ; and let the lad 

34 go up with his brethren. For how shall I go up to 
my father, and the lad be not with me ? lest I see the 
evil that shall come on my father. 

^0 Then Jo'seph could not refrain himself before all 
them that stood by him ; and he cried, Cause every 
man to go out from me. And there stood no man 
Math him, while Jo'seph made himself known unto his 

2 brethren. And he ^wept aloud : and the E-gyp'tians 

3 heard, and the house of Pha'raoh heard. And Jo'- 
seph said unto his brethren, I am Jo'seph ; doth my 
father yet live ? And his brethren could not an- 
swer him ; for they were troubled at his presence. 

4 And Jo'seph said unto his brethren. Come near to 
me, I pray you. And they came near. And he 
said, I am Jo'seph your brother, whom ye sold into 

5 E'gypt. And now be not grieved, nor angry with 
yourselves, that ye sold me hither : for God did 

6 send me before you to preserve life. For these two 
years hath the famine been in the land : and there 
are yet five years, in the which there shall be neither 

7 plowing nor harvest. And God sent me before you 
to preserve you a remnant in the earth, and to save 

8 you alive °by a great deliverance. So now it was 
not you that sent me hither, but God : and he hath 
made me a father to Pha'raoh, and lord of all his 

9 house, and ruler over all the land of E'gypt. Haste 
ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him. Thus 
saith thy son Jo'seph, God hath made me lord of all 

10 E'gypt : come down unto me, tarry not : and thou 
shalt dwell in the laud of Go'shen, and thou shalt be 
near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy chil- 
dren's children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all 

11 that thou hast : and there will I nourish thee ; for 
there are yet five years of famine ; lest thou come 
to poverty, thou, and thy household, and all that 

12 thou hast. And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes 
of my brother Ben'ja-min, that it is my mouth that 

13 speaketh unto you. And ye shall tell my father of 
all my glory in E'gypt, and of all that ye have seen ; 
and ye shall haste and bring down my father hither.

14 And he fell upon his brother Ben'ja-min's neck, and 
wept ; and Ben'ja-min wept upon his neck. 

15 Moreover, he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon 
them : and after that his brethren talked with him. 

16 ^And the fame thereof was heard in Pha'raoh's house, 
saying, Jo'seph's brethren are come: and it fpleased Pha'raoh 
well, and his servants. 

17 And Pha'raoh said unto Jo'seph, Say unto thy brethren,This 
do ye; lade your beasts,and go,get you unto the land of Ca'naan; 

18 And take your father and your households, and come 
unto me : and I will give you the good of the land of 
E'gypt, and ye shall eat 'the fat of the land. 

19 Now thou art commanded, this do ye ; take you wagons 
out of the land of E'gypt for your little ones, and for your 
wives, and bring your father, and come. 

20 Also fregard not your stuff; for the good of all the 
land of E'gypt is yours. 

21 And the children of Is'ra-el did so : and Jo'seph gave 
them wagons, according to the fcommandment of Pha'raoh, 
and gave them provision for the way. 

22 To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment ; 
but to Ben'jamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and 
*five changes of raiment. 

23 And to his father he sent after this manner ; ten asses 
tladen with the good things of E'gypt, and ten she-asses 
laden with corn and bread and meat for his father by the way. 

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

25 ^And they went up out of E'gypt, and came into the 
land of Ca'naan unto Ja'cob their father, 

26 And told him, saying, Jo'seph is yet alive, and he is 
governor over all the land of E'gypt. 'And f Ja'cob's heart 
tinted, for he believed them not. 

27 And they told him all the words of Jo'seph, which he had 
said unto them : and when he saw the wagons which Jo'seph 
had sent to carry him, the spirit of Ja'cob their father revived. 

28 And Is'ra-el said, It is enough ; Jo'seph my son is yet 
alive : I will go and see him before I die. - 

CHAPTER XLVI. 

Jacob is comforted by God — He gocth into Egypt. 

AND Is'ra-el took his journey with all that he had, and 
came to "Be'er-she'ba, and offered sacrifices 'unto the 
God of his father I'saac. 

2 And God spake unto Is'ra-el ''in the visions of the night, 
and said, Ja'cob, Ja'cob. And he said, Here am, I. 

3 And he said, I am God, ''the God of thy father: fear not to go 
down into E'gypt ; for I will there *make of thee a great nation. 

4 -^I will go down with thee into E'gypt ; and I will also 
surely "bring thee up again : and 'Jo'seph shall put his hand 
upon thine eyes. 

5 And 'Ja'cob rose up from Be'er-she'ba : and the sons of 
Is'ra-el carried Jacob their father,and their littleones,and their 
wives, in the wagons *which Pha'raoh had sent to carry him. 

6 And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they 
had gotten in the land of Ca'naan, and came into E'gypt, 
'Ja'cob, and all his seed with him : 

7 His sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and 
his sons' daughters, and all his seed brought he with him

16 And the fame thereof was heard in Pha'raoh's

24 and victual for his father by the way. So he sent 
his brethren away, and they departed : and he said 

25 unto them. See that ye fall not out by the way. And 
they went up out of E'gypt, and came into the land 

26 of Ca'naan unto Ja'cob their father. And they told 
him, saying, Jo'seph is yet alive, and he is ruler over 
all the land of E'gypt. And his heart fainted, for he 

27 believed them not. And thoy told him all the words 
of Jo'seph, which he had said unto them : and when 
he saw the wagons which Jo'seph had sent to carry 

28 him, the spirit of Ja'cob their father revived : and 
Is'ra-el said. It is enough ; Jo'seph my son is yet alive:

Ja'cob ; all the souls were fourteen. 

23 ^•'^And the sons of Dan; ||Hu'shim. 

24 ^"And the sons of Naph'ta-li ; Jah'ze-el, and Gu'ni, and 
Je'zer, and Shil'lem. 

25 *These are the sons of Bil'hah, 'which La'ban gave unto 
Ra'chel his daughter, and she bare these unto Ja'cob : all the

26 *A11 the souls that came with Ja'cob into E'gypt, which 
came out of his floins, besides Ja'cob's sons' wives, all the 
souls teere threescore and six ; 

27 And the sons of Jo'seph, which were borne him in E'gypt, 
were two souls : 'all the souls of the house of Ja'cob, which 
came into E'gypt, were threescore and ten. 

28 ^And he sent Ju'dah before him unto Jo'seph,"'to direct 
his face unto Go'shen ; and they came "into the land of Go'shen. 

29 And Jo'seph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet 
Is'ra-el his father ,to Go'shen, and presented himself unto him ; 
and he "fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while. 

30 And Is'ra-el said unto Jo'seph, "Now let me die, since I 
have seen thy face, because thou art yet alive. 

31 And Jo'seph said unto his brethren, and unto his fa- 
ther's house, "1 will go up, and shew Pha'raoh, and say unto 
him. My brethren, and my father's house, which were in the 
land of Ca'naan, are come unto me : 

32 And the. men are shepherds, for ftheir trade hath been 
to feed cattle ; and they have brought their flocks, and their 
herds, and all that they have. 

33 And it shall come to pass, when Pha'raoh shall call you, 
and shall say, 'What is your occupation ? 

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 Go'shen ; for 
every shepherd is "an abomination unto the E-gyp'tians. 

CHAPTER XLVII. 

Joseph presenteth his brethren, and his father , before Pharaoh— Jacob^ s age. 

THEN Jo'seph "came and told Pha'raoh, and said, My 
father and my brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, 
and all that they have, are come out of the land of Ca'naan ; 
and, behold, they are in ''the land of Go'shen. 

2 And he took some of his brethren, even five men, and 
''presented them unto Pha'raoh. 

3 And Pha'raoh said unto his brethren, ''What is your 
occupation? And they said unto Pha'raoh, 'Thy servants 
are shepherds, both we, and also our fathers. 

4 They said moreover unto Pha'raoh, -'^For to sojourn in 



Pe'rez, and Ze'rah : but Er and O'nan died in the land 
of Ca'naan. And the sons of Pe'rez were Hez'ron and 

13 Ha'mul. And the sons of Is'sa-char; To'la,and'Pu'vah,

sons of Naph'ta-li ; 'Jah'ze-el, and Gu'ni, and Je'zer,

came out of his loins, besides Ja'cob's sons' wives, 

27 all the souls were threescore and six; and the sons 
of Jo'seph, which were born to him in E'gypt, were 
two souls : all the souls of the house of Ja'cob, 
which came into E'gypt, were threescore and ten. 

28 And he sent Ju'dah before him unto Jo'seph, to 
shew the way before him unto Go'shen ; and they 

29 came into the land of Go'shen. And Jo'seph made 
ready his chariot, and went up to meet Is'ra-el his 
father, to Go'shen ; and he presented himself unto 
him, and fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a 

30 good while. And Is'ra-el said unto Jo'seph, Now let 
me die, since I have seen thy face, that thou art yet 

31 alive. And Jo'seph said unto his brethren, and unto 
his father's house, I will go up, and tell Pha'raoh, 
and will say unto him, My brethren, and my father's 
house, which were in the land of Ca'naan, are come 

32 unto me; and the men are shepherds, for they 
have been keepers of cattle ; and they have brought 
their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have. 

33 And it shall come to pass, when Pha'raoh shall call 

34 you, and shall say, What is your occupation ? that 
ye shall say, Thy servants have been keepers of

their herds, and all that they have, are come out 
of the land of Ca'naan; and, behold, they are in 

2 the land of Go'shen. And from among his brethren 
he took five men, and presented them unto Pha'- 

3raoh. And Pha'raoh said unto his brethren, What

the land are we come: for thy servants have no pasture for 
their flocks, "for the famine is sore in the land of Ca'naan : 
now therefore, we pray thee, let thy servants *dwell in the 
land of Go'shen. 

5 And Pha'raoh spake unto Jo'seph, saying, Thy father and 
thy brethren are come unto thee : 

6 'The land of E'gypt is before thee ; in the best of the 
land make thy father and brethren to dwell ; *in the land 
of Go'shen let them dwell : and if thou knowest any men 
of activity among them, then make them rulers over my 
cattle. 

7 And Jo'seph brought in Ja'cob his father, and set him 
before Pha'raoh : and Ja'cob blessed Pha'raoh. 

8 And Pha'raoh said unto Ja'cob, fHow old art thou? 

9 And Ja'cob said unto Pha'raoh, 'The days of the years of 
my pilgrimage are a hundred and thirty years : "few and 
evil have the days of the years of my life been, and "have 
not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my 
fathers in the days of their pilgrimage. 

10 And Ja'cob "blessed Pha'raoh, and went out from before 
Pha'raoh. 

11 ^And Jo'seph placed his father and his brethren, and 
gave them a possession in the land of E'gypt, in the best 
of the land, in the land of ''Ra-me'ses, 'as Pha'raoh had com- 
manded. 

12 And Jo'seph nourished his father, and his brethren, and 
all his father's household, with || f bread according to their 
families. 

13 ^And there was no bread in all the land ; for the famine 
was very sore, 'so that the land of E'gypt and all the land 
of Ca'naan fainted by reason of the famine. 

14 'And Jo'seph gathered up all the money that was found 
in the land of E'gypt, and in the land of Ca'naan, for the 
corn which they bought : and Jo'seph brought the money 
into Pha'raoh's house. 

15 And when money failed in the land of E'gypt, and in 
the land of Ca'naan, all the E-gyp'tians came unto Jo'seph, 
and said. Give us bread : for Svhy should we die in thy 
presence ? for the money faileth. 

16 And Jo'seph said. Give your cattle ; and I will give you 
for your cattle, if money fail. 

17 And they brought their cattle unto Jo'seph : and Jo'seph 
gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, 
and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses ; and he 
ffed them with bread for all their cattle for that year. 

18 When that year was ended, they came unto him the 
second year, and said unto him. We will not hide it from 
my lord, how that our money is spent ; my lord also hath 
our herds of cattle ; there is not aught left in the sight of 
my lord, but our bodies, and our lands : 

19 Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and 
our land ? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our 
land will be servants unto Pha'raoh : and give us seed, that 
we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate. 

20 And Jo'seph bought all the land of E'gypt for Pha'raoh ; 
for the E-gyp'tians sold every man his field, because the 
famine prevailed over them : so the land became Pha'raoh's. 

21 And as for the people, he removed them to cities from 
one end of the borders of E'gypt even to the other end 
thereof. 

22 "Only the land of the |[ priests bought he not; for the 
priests had a portion assigned them of Pha'raoh, and did eat 
their portion which Pha'raoh gave them : wherefore they 
sold not their lands. 

23 Then Jo'seph said unto the people. Behold, I have bought 
you this day and your land for Pha'raoh : lo, here is seed for 
you, and ye shall sow the land. 

24 And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall 
give the fifth part unt« Pha'raoh, and four parts shall be your 



the land are we come ; for there is no pasture for thy 
servants' flocks ; for the famine is sore in the land 
of Ca'naan : now therefore, we pray thee, let thy serv- 

5 ants dwell in the land of Go'.shen. And Pha'raoh 
spake unto Jo'seph, saying. Thy father and thy 

6 brethren are come unto thee : the land of E'gypt is 
before thee ; in the best of the land make thy father 
and thy brethren to dwell ; in the land of Go'shen 
let them dwell : and if thou knowest any 'able men 
among them, then make them rulers over my cattle. 

7 And Jo'seph brought in Ja'cob his father, and set 
him before Pha'raoh : and Ja'cob blessed Pha'raoh. 

8 And Pha'raoh said unto Ja'cob, How many are the 
9 days of the years of thy life? And Ja'cob said 

unto Pha'raoh, The days of the years of my ^pil- 
grimage are an hundred and thirty years : few and 
evil have been the days of the years of my life, and 
they have not attained unto the days of the years 
of the life of my fathers in the days of their ^pil 
lOgrimage. And Ja'cob blessed Pha'raoh, and went 
11 out from the presence of Pha'raoh. And Jo'seph 
placed his father and his brethren, and gave them a 
possession in the land of E'gypt, in the best of the 
land, in the land of Ra-me'ses, as Pha'raoh had com 
12manded. And Jo'seph nourished his father, and his 
brethren, and all his father's household, with bread, 
'according to their families. 

13 And there was no bread in all the land ; for the 
famine was very sore, so that the land of E'gypt 
and the land of Ca'naan fainted by reason of the 

14 famine. And Jo'seph gathered up all the money 
that was found in the land of E'gypt, and in the land 
of Ca'naan, for the corn which they bought : and 
Jo'seph brought the money into Pha'raoh's house. 

15 And when the money was all spent in the land of 
E'gypt, and in the land of Ca'naan, all the E-gyp'tians 
came unto Jo'seph, and said. Give us bread : for why 
should we die in thy presence? for our money feil- 

16 eth. And Jo'seph said. Give your cattle ; and I will 

17 give you for your cattle, if money fail. And they 
brought their cattle unto Jo'seph : and Jo'seph gave 
them bread in exchange for the horses, and for the 
■•flocks, and for the herds, and for the asses : and he 
'fed them with bread in exchange for all their cattle 

18 for that year. And when that year was ended, they 
came unto him the second year, and said unto him, 
We will not hide from my lord, how that our money 
is all spent ; and the herds of cattle are my lord's ; 
there is naught left in the sight of my lord, but our 

19 bodies, and our lands: wherefore should we die be- 
fore thine eyes, both we and our land ? buy us and 
our land for bread, and we and our land Avill be 
servants unto Pha'raoh : and give us seed, that we 
may Kve, and not die, and that the land be not des- 

20 olate. So Jo'seph bought all the land of E'gypt for 
Pha'raoh; for the E-gyp'tians sold every man his 
field, because the famine was sore upon them: and 

21 the land became Pha'raoh's. And as for the peo- 
ple, ^he removed them 'to the cities from one end 
of the border of E'gypt even to the other end 

22 thereof. Only the land of tiie priests bought he 
not : for the priests had a portion from Pha'raoh, 
and did eat their portion which Pha'raoh gave them ; 

23 wherefore they sold not their laud. Then Jo'seph 
said unto the people. Behold, I have bought you 
this day and your land for Pha'raoh : lo, here is seed 

24 for you, and ye shall sow the land. And it shall 
come to pass at the ingatherings, that ye shall give 
a fifth unto Pha'raoh, and four parts shall be your

of your households, and for food for your little ones. 

25 And they said, Thou hast saved our lives : ''let us find 
grace in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pha'raoh's 
servants. 

26 And Jo'seph made it a law over the land of E'gypt unto 
this day, that Pha'raoh should have the fifth part; "except 
the land of the |1 priests only, which became not Pha'raoh's. 

27 ^And Is'ra-el 'dwelt in the land of E'gypt, in the country 
of Go'sheu; and they had possessions therein, and "grew, 
and multiplied exceedingly. 

28 And Ja'cob lived in the land of E'gypt seventeen years : 
so fthe whole age of Ja'cob was a hundred forty and seven 
years. 

29 And the time 'drew nigh that Is'ra-el must die : and he 
called his son Jo'seph, and said unto him. If now I have found 
grace in thy sight, "put, I pray thee, thy hand under my 
thigh, and ''deal kindly and truly with me; 'bury me not, I 
pray thee, in E'gypt : 

30 But-'^I will lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me 
out of E'gypt, and "bury me in their buryingplace. And 
he said, I will do as thou liast said. 

31 And he said. Swear unto me. And he aware unto him. 
And *Is'ra-el bowed himself upon the bed's head. 

CHAPXER XLVIII. 

Joseph visiteth his sick father—Jacob repeateth the promise. 

AND it came to pass after these things, that one, told 
Jo'seph, Behold, thy father is sick : and he took with 
him his two sons, Ma-nas'seh and E'phra-im. 

2 And one told Ja'cob, and said. Behold, thy son Jo'seph 
Cometh unto. thee: and Is'ra-el strengthened himself, and sat 
upon the bed. 

3 And Ja'cob said unto Jo'seph, God Almighty appeared 
unto me at °Luz in the land oi Ca'naan, and blessed me, 

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 ^Jor an ever- 
lasting possession. 

5 "if And now thy "two sons, E'phra-im and Ma-nas'seh, 
which were born unto thee in the land of E'gypt, before I 
came unto thee into E'gypt, are mine ; as Reu'ben and Sim'- 
e-on, they shall be mine. 

6 And thy issue, which thou begettest after them, shall be 
thine, and shall be called after the name of their brethren 
in their inheritance. 

7 And as for me, when I came from Pa'dan, ''Ra'chel died 
by me in the land of Ca'naan in the way, when yet there wan 
but a little way to come unto Eph'rath : and I buried her 
there in the way of Eph'rath ; the same is Beth'le-hem. 

, 8 And Is'ra-el beheld Jo'seph's sons,and said,'Who are these ? 

9 And Jo'seph said unto his father, 'They are my sons, 
whom God hath given me in this place. And he said. Bring 
them, I pray thee, unto me, and -^I will bless them. 

10 Now "the eyes of Is'ra-el were fdim for age, so that he 
could not see. And he brought them near unto him; and 
*he kissed them, and embraced them. 

11 And Is'ra-el said unto Jo'seph, *I had not thought to see 
thy face : and, lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed. 

12 And Jo'seph brought them out from between his knees, 
and he bowed himself with his face to the earth. 

13 And Jo'seph took them both, E'phra-im in his right hand 
toward Is'ra-el's left hand, and Ma-nas'seh in his left hand 
toward Is'ra-el's right hand, and brought <Aem near unto him. 

14 And Is'ra-el stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon 
E'phra-im's head, who was the younger, and his left hand 
upon Ma-nas'seh's head, *guiding his hands wittingly; for 
Ma-nas'seh was the firstborn. 

15 ^And 'he blessed Jo'seph, and said, God, ""before whom 



own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for 
them of your households, and for food for your 

25 little ones. And they said. Thou hast saved our 
lives : let us find grace in the sight of my lord, and 

26 we will be Pha'raoh's servants. And Jo'seph made 
it a statute concerning the land of E'gypt unto this 
day, that Pha'raoh should have the fifth ; only the 

27 land of the priests alone became not Pha'raoh's. And 
Is'ra-el dwelt in the land of E'gypt, in the land of 
Go'shen; and they gat them possessions therein, and 
were fruitful and multiplied exceedingly. 

28 And Ja'cob lived in the land of E'gypt seventeen 
years : so the days of Ja'cob, the years of his life, 

29 were an hundred forty and seven years. And the 
time drew near that Is'ra-el must die : and he called 
his son Jo'seph, and said unto him. If now I have 
found grace in thy sight, put, I pray thee, thy hand 
under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me ; 

30 bury me not, I pray thee, in E'gypt: but when I 
sleep with my fathers, thou shalt carry me out of 
E'gypt, and bury me in their buryingplace. And 

31 he said, I will do as thou hast said. And he said. 
Swear unto me: and he sware unto him. And 
Is'ra-el bowed himself upon the bed's head. 

+^C> And it came to pass after these things, that one 
said to Jo'seph, Behold, thy father is sick: and he 
took with him his two sons, Ma-nas'seh and E'phra- 

2im. And one told Ja'cob, and said. Behold, thy 
son Jo'seph cometh unto thee : and Is'ra-el strength- 

3ened himself, and sat upon the bed. And Ja'cob 
said unto Jo'seph, 'God Almighty appeared unto 
me at Luz in the land of Ca'naan, and blessed me, 

4 and said unto me. Behold, I will make thee fruitful, 
and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a com- 
pany of peoples ; and will give this land to thy seed 

5 after thee for an everlasting possession. And now 
thy two sons, which were born unto thee in the land 
of E'gypt before I came unto thee into E'gypt, are 
mine ; E'phra-im and Ma-nas'seh, even as Reu'ben and 

6 Sim'e-on shall be mine. And thy issue, which thou 
^begettest after them, shall be thine; they shall be 
called after the name of their brethren in their in- 

7 heritance. And as for me, when I came from Pad'- 
dan, Ra'chel died %y me ir the land of Ca'naan in 
the way, when there was still some way to come 
unto Eph'rath: and I buried her there in the way 

8 to Eph'rath (the same is Beth'le-hem). And Is'ra-el 
beheld Jo'seph's sons, and said. Who are these? 

9 And Jo'seph said unto his father. They are my sons, 
whom God hath given me here. And he said. 
Bring them, I pray thee, unto me, and I will bless 

10 them. Now the eyes of Is'ra-el were dim forage, so 
that he could not see. And he brought them near 
unto him ; and he kissed them, and embraced them. 

11 And Is'ra-el said unto Jo'seph, I had not thought to 
see thy face : and, lo, God hath let me see thy seed 

12 also. And Jo'seph brought them out from between 
his knees ; and he bowed himself with his face to 

13 the earth. And Jo'seph took them both, E'phra-im 
in his right hand toward Is'ra-el's left hand, and 
Ma-nas'seh in his left hand toward Is'ra-el's right 

14 hand, and brought them near unto him. And Is'- 
ra-el stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon 
E'phra-im's head, who was the younger, and his left 
hand upon Ma-nas'seh's head, ^guiding his hands 

15 wittingly; for Ma-nas'seh was the firstborn. And 
he blessed Jo'seph, and said, The God before whom

my fathers A'bra-ham and I'saac did walk, the God which 
fed me all my life long unto this day, 

16 The Angel "which redeemed me from all evil, bless the 
lads ; and let "my name .be named on them, and the name 
of my fathers A'bra-ham and I'saac ; and let them fgrow 
into a multitude in the midst of the earth. 

17 And when Jo'seph saw that his father "laid his right 
hand upon the head of E'phra-im, it || displeased him : and 
he held up his father's hand, to remove it from E'phra-im's 
head unto Ma'nas-seh's head. 

18 And Jo'seph said unto his father. Not so, my father: 
for this is the firstborn ; put thy right hand upon his head. 

19 And his father refused, and said, «I know it, my 
son, I know it : he also shall become a people, and he also 
shall be great : but truly ""his younger brother shall be 
greater than he, and his seed shall become a fmultitade 
of nations. 

20 And he blessed them that day, saying, 'In thee shall 
Is'ra-el bless, saying, God make thee as E'phra-im and as 
Ma-nas'seh : and he set E'phra-im before Ma-nas'seh. 

21 And Is'ra-el said unto Jo'seph, Behold, I die ; but 'God 
shall be with you, and bring you again unto the land of 
your fathers. 

22 Moreover "I have given to thee one portion above thy 
brethren, which I took out of the hand ""of the Am'o-rite 
with my sword and with my bow. 

CHLAF'TER XLIX. 

Jacob calleth his sons together — His speech to Reuben — His death. 

AND Ja'cob called unto his sons, and said, Gather your- 
selves together, that I may "tell you that which shall 
befall you 'in the last days. 

2 Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Ja'cob ; 
and "hearken unto Is'ra-el your father. 

3 ^Reu'ben, thou art ''my firstborn, my might, 'and the 
beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the 
excellency of power : 

4 Unstable as water, f^thou shalt not excel ; because thou 
'wen test up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it: ||he 
went up to my couch. 

5 "ly'Sim'e-on and Le'vi are '"brethren; |1 instruments of 
cruelty are in their habitations. 

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

7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce ; and their wrath, 
for it was cruel : "I will divide them in Ja'cob and scatter 
them in Is'ra-el. 

8 ^'Ju'dah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: 
'thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies ; 'thy father's 
children shall bow down before thee. 

9 Ju'dah is '& 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; who shall rouse him up? 

10 "'The sceptre shall not depart from Ju'dah, nor "a law- 
giver 'from between his feet, "until Shi'loh come ; 'and unto 
him shall the gathering of the people be. 

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

12 His ""eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white 
with milk, 

13 TJ'Zeb'u-lun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he 
shall be for a haven of ships; and his border shall be unto 
Zi'don. 



my fathers A'bra-ham and I'saac did walk, the God 

16 which hath fed me all my life long unto this day, the 
angel which hath redeemed me from all evil, bless 
the lads; and let my name be named on them, and 
the name of my fathers A'bra-ham and I'saac ; and let 
them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth. 

17 And when Jo'seph saw that his father laid his right 
hand upon the head of E'phra-im, it displeased him : 
and he held up his father's hand, to remove it from 

18 E'phra-im's head unto Ma-nas'seh's head. And Jo'seph 
said unto his father. Not so, my father : for this is the 

19 firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head. And 
his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I 
know it : he also shall become a people, and he also 
shall be great : howbeit his younger brother shall be 
greater than he, and his seed shall become 'a mul- 

20titude of nations. And he blessed them that day, 
saying, ^In thee shall Is'ra-el bless, saying, God make 
thee as E'phra-im and as Ma-nas'seh: and he set 

21 E'phra-im before Ma-nas'seh. And Is'ra-el said unto 
Jo'seph, Behold, I die: but God shall be with you, 
and bring you again unto the land of your fathers. 

22 Moreover I have given to thee one 'portion above 
thy brethren, which I took out of the hand of the 
Am'o-rite with my sword and with my bow. 

^y And Ja'cob called unto his sons, and said : Gather 
yourselves together, that I may tell you that which 
shall befall you in the latter days. 

2 Assemble yourselves, and hear, ye sons of Ja'cob ; 
And hearken unto Is'ra-el your father. 

3 Reu'ben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and 

the ^beginning of my strength; 
The excellency of dignity, and the excellency of 
power. 

4 'Unstable as water, *thou shalt not have the excel- 

lency ; 
Because thou wentest up to thy father's bed : 
Then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch. 

5 Sim'e-on and Le'vi are brethren; 
Weapons of violence are their 'swords. 

6 O my soul, come not thou into their ^council : 
Unto their assembly, my glory, be not thou united ; 
For in their anger they slew 'a man. 

And in their selfwill they houghed "an ox. 

7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; 
And their wrath, for it was cruel: 

I will divide them in Ja'cob, 
And scatter them in Is'ra-el. 

8 Ju'dah, thee shall thy brethren praise : 

Thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies ; 
Thy father's sony shall bow down before thee. 

9 Ju'dah is a lion's whelp; 

From the prey, my son, thou art gone up: 
He stooped down, he couched as a lion. 
And as a lioness; who shall rouse him up? 

10 The sceptre shall not depart from Ju'dah, 
Nor "the ruler's staff from between his feet, 
"Until Shi'loh come; 

And unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be. 

11 Binding his foal unto the vine. 

And his ass's colt unto the choice vine ; 
He hath washed his garments in wine, 
And his vesture in the blood of grapes : 

12 His eyes shall be red with wine, 
And his teeth white with milk. 

13 Zeb'u-lun shall dwell at the '%aven of the sea : 
And he shall be for an "haven of ships ; 

And his border shall be "upon Zi'don.

Is'sa-char is a strong ass. 
Couching down between the sheepfolds: 
And he saw 'a resting place that it was good. 
And the land that it was pleasant, 
And he bowed his shoulder to bear. 
And became a servant under taskwork. 

Dan shall judge his people. 
As one of the tribes of Is ra-el. 
Dan shall be a serpent in the way, 
An ^adder in the path, 
That biteth the horse's heels,

Jo'seph spake unto "the house of Pha'raoh, saying, If now 
I have found grace in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the 
ears of Pha'raoh, saying, 

5 ■'^My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die : in 
my grave "which I have digged for me in the land of 
Ca'naaji, there shalt thou bury me. Now therefore let 
me go up, I pray theey and bury my fadier, and I will 
come again. 

6 And Pha'raoh said. Go up, and bury thy father, accord- 
ing as he made thee swear. 

7 •[[And Jo'seph went up to bury his &ther : and with him 
went up all the servants of Pha'raoh, the elders of his house, 
and all the: elders of the land of E'gypt, 

8 And all the house of Jo'seph, and his brethren, and his 
father's house : only their little ones, and their flocks, and 
their herds, they left in the land of Go'shen. 

9 And there went up with him both chariots and horse- 
men : and it was a very great company. 

10 And they came to the threshingfloor of A'tad, which 
is beyond Jor'dan ; and there they ''mourned with a great and 
very sore lamentation : 'and he made a mourning for his 
father seven days. 

11 And when the inhabitants of the land, the Ca'naan-ites, 
saw the mourning in the floor of A'tad, they said, This 
is a grievous mourning to the E-gyp'tians : wherefore the 
name of it is called 1 1 A'bel-miz'ra-im, which is beyond Jor'dan. 

12 And his sons did unto him according as he commanded 
them: 

13 For *his sons carried him into the land of Ca'naan, and 
buried him in the cave of the field of Mach-pe'lah, which 
A'bra-ham ^bought with the iield for a possession of a bury- 
ingplace of E'phron the Hit'tite, before Mam're. 

14 ^And Jo'seph returned into E'gypt, he, and his breth- 
ren, and all that went up with him to bury his father, after 
he had buried his father. 

15 ^And when Jo'seph's brethren saw that their father was 
dead,^"4:hey said, Jo'seph will peradventure hate us, and will 
certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him. 

16 And they fsent a messenger unto Jo'seph, saying. Thy 
father did command before he died, saying, 

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

18 And his brethren also went and ''fell down before his 
face ; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. 

19 And Jo'seph said unto them, 'Fear not : ""for am I in 
the place of God? 

20 'But as for you, ye thought evil against me ; bid 'God 
meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to 
save much people alive. 

21 Now therefore fear ye not: "I will nourish you, and 
your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake 
fkindly unto them, 

22 ^And Jo'seph dwelt in E'gypt, he, and his father's 
house : and Jo'seph lived a hundred and ten years. 

23 And Jo'seph saw E'phra-im's children ^of the third 
generation : "the children also of Ma'chir the son of Ma-nas'- 
seh 'were fbrought up upon Jo'seph's knees. 

24 And Jo'seph said unto his brethren, I die ; and "God 
will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land unto 
the land 'which he sware to A'bra-ham, to I'saac, and to 
Ja'cob. 

25 And "Jo'seph took an oath of the children of Israel, 
saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my 
bones from hence. 

26 So Jo'seph died, being a hundred and ten years old : 
and they ''embalmed him, and he was put in a coifin in E'gypt. 



Jo'seph spake unto the house of Pha'raoh, saying, If 
now I have found grace in your eyes, speak, I pray 

5 you, in the ears of Pha'raoh, saying. My father made 
me swear, saying, Lo, I die : in my grave which I 
'have digged for me in the land of Ca'naan, there 
shalt thou bury me. Now therefore let me go up, 
I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will come 

6 again. And Pha'raoh said. Go up, and bury thy 

7 father, according as he made thee swear. And 
Jo'seph went up to bury his father: and with him 
went up all the servants of Pha'raoh, the elders of 
his house, and all the elders of the land of E'gypt, 

8 and all the house of Jo'seph, and his brethren, and 
his father's house : only their little ones, and their 
flocks, and their herds, they left in the land of 

9 Go'shen . And there went up with him both chariots 
and horsemen : and it was a very great company. 

10 And they came to the threshing-floor of A'tad, 
which is beyond Jor'dan, and there they lamented 
with a very great and sore lamentation : and he made 

11a mourning for his father seven days. And when 
the inhabitants of the land, the Ca'naan-ites, saw the 
mourning in the floor of A'tad, they said. This is a 
grievous ^mourning to the E-gyp'tians : wherefore the 
name of it was called A'bel-miz'ra-im, which is be- 

12 yond Jor'dan. And his sons did unto him according 

13 as he commanded them: for his sons carried him 
into the land of Ca'naan, and buried him in the cave 
of the field of Mach-pe'lah, which A'bra-ham bought 
with the field, for a possession of a buryingplace, of 
E'phron the Hit'tite, before Mam're. 

14 And Jo'seph returned into E'gypt, he, and his 
brethren, and all that went up with him to bury his 

15 father, after he had buried his father. And when 
Jo'seph's brethren saw that their father was dead, 
they said. It may be that Jo'seph will hate us, and 
will fully requite us all the evil which we did unto 

16 him. And they sent a message unto Jo'seph, saying, 

17 Thy &ther did command before he died, saying. So 
shall ye say unto Jo'seph, Forgive, I pray thee now, 
the transgression of thy brethren, and their sin, for 
that they did unto thee evil : and now, we pray thee, 
forgive the transgression of the servants of the God 
of thy father. And Jo'seph wept when they spake 

18 unto him. And his brethren also went and fell 
down before his face ; and they said, Behold, we be 

19thy servants. And Jo'seph .said unto them. Fear 

20 not : for am I in the place of God? And as for 

you, ye meant evil against me; but God meant 

it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to 

21 save much people alive. Now therefore fear ye not : 
I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he 
comforted them, and spake ''kiudly unto them. 

22 And Jo'seph dwelt in E'gypt, he, and his father's 
house: and Jo'seph lived an hundred and ten years. 

23 And Jo'seph saw E'phra-im's children of the third 
generation : the children also of Ma'chir the son of 

24Ma-nas'seh were born upon Jo'seph's knees. And 
Jo'seph said unto his brethren, I die : but God will 
surely visit you, and bring you up out of this land 
unto the land which he sware to A'bra-ham, to I'saae, 

25 and to Ja'cob. And Jo'seph took an oath of the 
children of Is'rarel, saying, God will surely visit you, 

26and ye shall carry up my bones from hence. So 
Jo'seph died, being an hundred and ten years old: 
and they embalmed him, and he was put in a co£Sii 
in E'gypt.

CHAPTER I. 

The children of Israel multiply— Pharaoh kilteth the male children. 

"VrOW "these are, the names of the children of Is'ra-el, 
JjI which came into E'gypt ; every man and his household 
came with Ja'cob. 

2 Reu'ben, Sim'e-on, Le'vi, and Ju'dah, 

3 Is'sa-char, Zeb'u-lun, and Ben'ja-min, 

4 Dan, and Naph'ta-li, Gad, and Ash'er. 

5 And all the souls that came out of the floins of Ja'cob 
were 'seventy souls : for Jo'seph was in E'gypt already. 

6 And "Jo'seph died, and all his brethren, and all that 
generation. 

7 ^''And the children of Is'ra-el were fruitful, and increased 
abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty ; 
and the land was filled with them. 

8 Now there 'arose up a new king over E'gypt, which knew 
not Jo'seph. 

9 And he said unto his people. Behold, -^the people of the 
children of Is'ra-el are more and mightier than we : 

10 "Come on, let us ''deal wisely with them ; lest they 
multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out 
any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against 
us, and so get them up out of the land. 

1 1 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters *to afflict 
them with their *burdens. And they built for Pha'raoh 
treasure cities, Pi'thom 'and Ra-am'ses. 

12 fBut the more they afflicted them, the more they 
multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of 
the children of Is'ra-el. 

13 And the E-gyp'tians made the children of Is'ra-el to 
serve with rigour : 

14 And they "'made their lives bitter with hard bondage, 
"in mortar, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the 
field : all their service, wherein they made them serve, was 
with rigour. 

15 ^And the king of E'gypt spake to the He'brew mid- 
wives, of which the name of the one was Shiph'rah, and the 
name of the other Pu'ah ; 

16 And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the 
He'brew women, and see them upon the stools, if it be a 
son, then ye shall kill him ; but if it be a daughter, then she 
shall live. 

17 But the midwives "feared God, and did not "as the 
king of E'gypt commanded them, but saved the men chil- 
dren alive. 

18 And the king of E'gypt called for the midwives, and 
said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have 
saved the men children alive ? 

19 And 'the midwives said unto Pha'raoh, Because the 
He'brew women are not as the E-gyp'tian women ; for they 
are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto 
them. 

20 'Therefore God dealt well with the midwives : and the 
people multiplied, and waxed very mighty. 

21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, 
'that he made them houses. 

22 And Pha'raoh charged all his people, saying, 'Every 
son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every 
daughter ye shall save alive. 



THE SECOND BOOK OF MOSES, 



COMMONLY CALLED 



EXODUS. 



4- Now these are the names of the sons of Is'ra-el, 

which came into E'gypt ; every man and his house- 

2 hold came with Ja'cob. Reu'ben, Sim'e-on, Le'vi, and 

4 Ju'dah; Is'sa-char,Zeb'u-lun, and Ben'ja-min; Dan and 

5 Naph'ta-li, Gad and Ash'er. And all the souls that 
came out of the loins of Ja'cob were seventy souls 

6 and Jo'seph was in E'gypt already. And Jo'seph 
died, and all his brethren, and all that generation 

7 And the children of Is'ra-el were fruitful, and in- 
creased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed 
exceeding mighty ; and the land was filled with 
them. 

8 Now there arose a new king over E'gypt, which 

9 knew not Jo'seph. And he said unto his people. 
Behold, the people of the children of Is'ra-el are 

10 'more and mightier than we : come, let us deal wisely 
with them ; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, 
that, when there falleth out any war, they also join 
themselves unto our enemies, and fight against us. 

Hand get them up out of the land. Therefore they 
did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with 
their burdens. And they built for Pha'raoh store 

12 cities, Pi'thom and Ra-am'ses. But the more they 
afflicted them, the more they multiplied and the more 
they spread abroad. And they ^were grieved be- 

13 cause of the children of Is'ra-el. And the E-gyp'tians 
made the children of Is'ra-el to serve with rigour : 

14 and they made their lives bitter with hard service, in 
mortar and in brick, and in all manner of service in 
the field, all their service, wherein they made them 
serve with rigour. 

15 And the king of E'gypt spake to the He'brew mid- 
wives, of which the name of the one was Shiph'rah, 

16 and the name of the other Pu'ah : and he said, When 
ye do the office of a midwife to the He'brew women, 
and see them upon the birthstool ; if it be a son, 
then ye shall kill him ; but if it be a daughter, then 

17 she shall live. But the midwives feared God, and 
did not as the king of E'gypt commanded them, but 

18 saved the men children alive. And the king of 
E'gypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, 
Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the 

19 men children alive ? And the midwives said unto 
Pha'raoh, Because the He'brew women are not as the 
E-gyp'tian women ; for they are lively, and are de- 

20 livered ere the midwife come unto them. And God 
dealt well with the midwives : and the people multi- 

21 plied, and waxed very mighty. And it came to pass, 
because the midwives feared God, that he made them 

22 houses. And Pha'raoh charged all his people, saying, 
Every son that is born ye shall cast into ^he river, 
and every daughter ye shall save alive.

CMAPXEIR II. 

Moses is born — Jiie stayettt an Egyptian — Marrieth Zipporah, 

AND there went a "man of the house of Le'^vi, and took 
to wife a daughter of Le'vi. 

2 And the woman conceived and bare a son : and 'when 
she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three 
months. 

3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for 
him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with 
pitch, and put the child therein ; and she laid U in the flags 
by the river's brink. 

4 ''And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done 
to him. 

5 ^And the ''daughter of Pha'raoh came down to wash 
herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the 
river's ride : and when she saw the ark among the flags, she 
sent her maid to fetch it. 

6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child : and, 
behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, 
and said, This is one of the He'brews' children. 

7 Then said his sister to Pha'raoh's daughter. Shall I go 
and call to thee a nurse of the He'brew women, that she may 
nurse the child for thee? 

8 And Pha'raoh's daughter said to her. Go. And the maid 
went and called the child's mother. 

9 And Pha'raoh's daughter said unto her. Take this child 
away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. 
And the woman took the child, and nursed it. 

10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pha'raoh's 
daughter, and he became 'her son. And she called his name 
II Mo'ses : and she said. Because I drew him out of the water. 

11 ^And it came to pass in those days, •''when Mo'ses was 
grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on 
their "burdens : and he spied an E-gyp'tian smiting a He'brew, 
one of his brethren. 

12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he 
saw that there was no man, he *slew the E-gyp'tian, and hid 
him in the sand. 

13 And 'when he went out the second day, behold, two 
men of the He'brews strove together : and he said to him 
that did the wrong. Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow ? 

14 And he said, *Who made thee f^ prince and a judge 
over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the 
E-gyp'tian ? And Mo'ses feared, and said, Surely this thing 
is known. 

15 Now when Pha'raoh heard this thing, he sought to slay 
Mo'ses. But TVEo'ses fled from the face of Pha'raoh, and 
dwelt in the land of Mid'i-an : and he sat down by ™a well. 

16 "Now the II priest of Mid'i-an had seven daughters : "and 
they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water 
their father's flock. 

17 And the shepherds came and drove them away: but 
Mo'ses stood up and helped them, and "watered their flock. 

18 And when they came to "Reu'el their father, he said. 
How is it that ye are come so soon to-day? 

19 And they said. An E-gyp'tian delivered us out of the 
hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, 
and watered the flock. 

20 And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why 
is it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may 'eat 
bread. 

21 And Mo'ses was content to dwell with the man : and 
he gave Mo'ses 'Zip-po'rah his daughter. 

22 And she bare him a son, and he called his name ||'Ger'- 
shom : for he said, I have been "a stranger in a strange land. 

23 ^ And it came to pass, 'in process of time, that the king 
of E'gypt died : and the children of Is'ra-el "sighed by reason 
of the bondage, and they cried, and "their cry came up unto 
God by reason of the bondage. 



« And there went a man of the house of Le'vi, and 

2 took to wife a daughter of Le'vi. And the woman 
conceived, and bare a son : and when she saw him 
that he was a goodly child, she hid him three 

3 months. And when she could not longer hide him, 
she took for him an ark of 'bulrushes, and daubed 
it with ^slime and with pitch ; and she put the child 
therein, and laid it in the fl^s by the river's brink. 

4 And his sister stood afar off", to know what would 

5 be done to him. And the daughter of Pha'raoh 
came down to bathe at the river; and her maidens 
walked along by the river side ; and she saw the 
ark among the flags, and sent her handmaid to fetch 

6 it. And she opened it, and saw the child : and, be- 
hold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on 
him, and said. This is one of the He'brews' children. 

7 Then said his sister to Pha'raoh's daughter. Shall I 
go and call thee a nurse of the He'brew women, that 

8 she may nurse the child for thee ? And Pha'raoh's 
daughter said to her. Go. And the maid went and 

9 called the child's mother. And Pha'raoh's daughter 
said unto her. Take this child away, and nurse it for 
me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman 

10 took the child, and nursed it. And the child grew, 
and she brought him unto Pha'raoh's daughter, and 
he became her son. And she called his name 'Mo'ses, 
and said. Because I *drew him out of the water. 

11 And it came to pass in those days, when Mo'ses 
was grown up, that he went out unto his brethren, 
and looked on their burdens : and he saw an E-gyp'tian 

12 smiting an He'brew, one of his brethren. And he 
looked this way and that way, and when he saw that 
there was no man, he smote the E-gyp'tian, and hid 

13 him in the sand. And he went out the second day, 
and, behold, two men of the He'brews strove to- 
gether: and he said to him that did the wrong, 

14 Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow? And he said. 
Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? 
thinkest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the E-gyp'- 
tian ? And Mo'ses feared, and said, Surely the thing 

15 is known. Now when Pha'raoh heard this thing, he 
sought to slay Mo'ses. But Mo'ses fled from the face 
of Pha'raoh, and dwelt in the land of Mid'i-an : and 

16 he sat down by a well. Now the priest of Mid'i-an 
had seven daughters : and they came and drew water 
and filled the troughs to water their father's flock. 

17 And the shepherds came and drove them away : but 
Mo'ses stood up and helped them, and watered their 

18 flock. And when they came to Reu'el their father, 
he said. How is it that ye are come so soon to-day ? 

19 And they said. An E-gyp'tian delivered us out of the 
hand of the shepherds, and moreover he drew water 

20 for us, and watered the flock. And he said unto his 
daughters. And where is he ? why is it that ye have 

21 left the man ? call him, that he may eat bread. And 
Mo'ses was content to dwell with the man : and he 

22 gave Mo'ses Zip-po'rah his daughter. And she bare 
a son, and he called his name Ger'shom : for he said, 
I have been 'a sojourner in a strange land. 

23 And it came topass in the course of those many days, 
that the king of E'gypt died : and the children of Is'ra- 
el sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and 
their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

24 And God "heard their groaaing, and God 'remembered 
his "covenant with A'bra-ham, with I'saac, and with Ja'cob. 

25 And God ''looked upon the children of Is'ra-el, and God 
t'had respect unto them. 

CHAPTER III. 

God appeareth to Moses in a burning bush— His message to Israel. 

"VrOW Mo'ses kept the flock of Je'thro his father in law, 
l-^ "the priest of Mid'i-an : and he led the flock to the back 
side of the desert, and came to ""the mountain of God, even 
to Ho'reb. 

2 And ''the Angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a 
flame of fire out of the midst of a bush : and he looked, and, 
behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not 
consumed. 

3 And Mo'ses said, I will now turn aside, and see this 
''great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 

4 And when the LoED saw that he turned aside to see, 
God called *unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, 
Mo'ses, Mo'ses. And he said. Here am I. 

5 And he said. Draw not nigh hither : ■'^put off thy shoes 
from off thy feet; for the place whereon thou standest is 
holy ground. 

6 Moreover he said, 'I am the God of thy father, the God 
of A'bra-ham, the God of I'saac, and the God of Ja'cob. And 
Mo'ses hid his face ; for ''he was afraid to look upon God. 

7 ^And the Lord said, I have surely seen the afiliction of 
my people which are in E'gypt, and 'have heard their cry 
'by reason of their taskmasters ; for 'I know their sorrows : 

8 And ™I am come down to "deliver them out of the hand 
of the E-gyp' tians, and to bring them up out of that land 
"unto a good land and a large, unto a land ""flowing with 
milk and honey; unto the place of 'the Ca'naan-ites, and the 
Hit'tites, and the Am'o-rites, and the Per'iz-zites, and the 
Hi'vites, and the Jeb'u-sites. 

9 Now therefore, behold, ''the cry of the children of Is'ra-el 
is come unto me : and I have also seen the 'oppression where- 
with the E-gyp' tians oppress them. 

10 'Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pha'raoh, 
that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of 
Is'ra-el out of E'gypt. 

11 ^And Mo'ses said unto God," Who am I, that I should 
go unto Pha'raoh, and that I should bring forth the children 
of Is'ra-el out of E'gypt ? 

12 And he said, "^Certainly I will be with thee; and this 
shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When 
thou hast brought forth the people out of E'gypt, ye shall 
serve God upon this mountain. 

13 And Mo'ses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto 
the children of Is'ra-el, and shall say unto them. The God of 
your fathers hath sent me unto you ; and they shall say to 
me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? 

14 And God said unto Mo'ses, I AM THAT I AM : And 
he said. Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Is'ra-el, "I 
AM hath sent me unto you. 

15 And God said moreover unto Mo'ses, Thus shalt thou 
say unto the children of Is'ra-el, The Lord God of your 
fathers, the God of A'bra-ham, the God of I'saac, and the God 
of Ja'cob hath sent me unto you : this is 'my name for ever, 
and this is my memorial unto all generations. 

16 Go, and "gather the elders of Is'rael together, and say 
unto them. The Lord God of your fathers, the God of 
A'bra-ham, of I'saac, and of Ja'cob, appeared unto me, say- 
ing, ''I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done 
to you in E'gypt: 

17 And I have said, °I will bring you up out of the afflic- 
tion of E'gypt unto the land of the Ca'naan-ites, and the Hit'- 
tites,and the Am'o-rites, and the Per'iz-zites, and the Hi'vites, 
and the Jeb'u-sites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey. 

18 And ''they shall hearken to thy voice : and 'thou shalt 



24 And God heard ttieir groaning, and God remem- 
bered his covenant with A'bra-ham, with I'saac, and 

25 with Ja'cob. And God saw the children of Is'ra-el, 
and God took knowledge of them. 

V Now Mo'ses was keeping the flock of Je'thro his 
father in law, the priest of Mid'i-an : and he led the 
flock to the back of the wilderness, and came to the 

2 mountain of God, unto Ho'reb. And the angel of 
the LoRi/ appeared unto him in a flame oi" fire out 
of the midst of a bush : and he looked, and, behold, 
the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not 

8 'consumed. And Mo'ses said, I will turn aside now, 
and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 

4 And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, 
God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, 
and said, Mo'ses, Mo'ses. And he said. Here am I. 

5 And he said. Draw not nigh hither: put off thy 
shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou 

6 standest is holy ground. Moreover he said, I am 
the God of thy father, the God of A'bra-ham, the 
God of I'saac, and the God of Ja'cob. And Mo'ses 
hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. 

7 And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction 
of my people which are in E'gypt, and have heard 
thefr cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know 

8 their sorrows ; and I am come down to deliver them 
out of the hand of t':-^ E-gyp' tians, and to bring them 
up out of that land unto a good land and a large, 
unto a land flowing with milk and honey ; unto the 
place of the Ca'naan-ite, and the Hit'tite, and the 
Am'o-rite, and the Per'iz-zite,and the Hi'vite,and the 

9 Jeb'u-site. And now, behold, the cry of the children 
of Is'ra-el is come unto me: moreover I have seen 
the oppression wherewith the E-gyp'tians oppress 

lOthem. Come now therefore, and I will send thee 
unto Pha'raoh, that thou mayest bring forth my 

11 people the children of Is'ra-el out of E'gypt. And 
Mo'ses said unto God, Who am I that I should go 
unto Pha'raoh, and that I should bring forth the 

12 children of Is'ra-el out of E'gypt? And he said, 
Certainly I will be with thee ; and this shall be the 
token unto thee, that I have sent thee: when thou 
hast brought forth the people out of E'gypt, ye 

13 shall serve God upon this mountain. And Mo'ses 
said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the chil- 
dren of Is'ra-el, and shall say unto them. The God 
of your fathers hath sent me unto you ; and they 
shall say to me. What is his name? what shall I 

14 say unto them ? And God said unto Mo'ses, 'i am 
THAT I AM : and he said. Thus shalt thou say unto the 
children of Is'ra-el, ^i am hath sent me unto you. 

15 And God said moreover unto Mo'ses, Thus shalt 
thou say unto the children of Is'ra-el, ^The Lord, the 
God of your fathers, the God of A'bra-ham, the God 
of I'saac, and the God of Ja'cob, hath sent me unto 
you: this is my name for ever, and this is my me- 

16morial unto all generations. Go, and gather the 
elders of Is'rael together, and say unto them. The 
Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of A'bra- 
ham, of I'saac, and of Ja'cob, hath appeared unto 
me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that 

17 which is done to you in E'gypt : and I have said, I 
will bring you up out of the affliction of E'gypt unto 
the land of the Ca'naan-ite, and the Hit'tite, and the 
Am'o-rite, and the Per'iz-zite, and the Hi'vite, and the 
Jeb'u-site, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.

come, thou and the elders of I'sra-el, unto the king of E'gypt, 
and ye shall say unto him, The Lokd God of the He'brews 
hath -^met with us : and now let us go, we beseech thee, 
three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice 
to the Lord our God. 

19 ^And I am sure that the king of E'gypt 'will not let 
you go, II no, not by a mighty hand. 

20 And I will *stretch out my hand, and smite E'gypt with 
*all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and 
*after that he will let you go. 

21 And 'I will give this people favour in the sight of the 
E-gyp'tians : and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye 
shall not go empty : 

22 "But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and 
of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and 
jewels of gold, and raiment : and ye shall put them upon 
your sons, and upon your daughters ; and "ye shall spoil 
II the E-gyp'tians. 

CHAPTER IV. 

Moses* rod is turned into a serpent—God^ s message to Pharaoh. 

AND Mo'ses answered and said. But, behold, they will 
not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice : for they will 
say. The Lord hath not appeared unto thee. 

2 And the Lord said unto him. What is that in thine hand ? 
And he said, "A rod. 

3 And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the 
ground,and it became a serpent ; and Mo'ses fled from before it. 

4 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Put forth thine hand, 
and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and 
caught it, and it became a rod in his hand : 

5 That they may 'believe that the "Lord God of their 
fathers, the God of A'bra-ham, the God of I'saac, and the 
God of Ja'cob, hath appeared unto thee. 

6 ^And the Lord said furthermore unto him. Put now thine 
hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom : and 
when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous ''as snow. 

7 And he said. Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And 
he put his hand into his bosom again ; and plucked it out of 
his bosom, and, behold,*it was turned again as his other flesh. 

8 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, 
neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will 
believe the voice of the latter sign. 

9 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also 
these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou 
shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry 
land: and •''the water which thou takest out of the river 
fshall become blood upon the dry land. 

10 "[[And Mo'ses said unto the Lord, O my Lord, I am not 
feloquent, neither theretofore, nor since thou hast spoken un- 
to thy servant ; but "I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. 

11 And the Lord said unto him, ''Who hath made man's 
mouth, or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, 
or the blind? have not I the Lord? 

12 Now therefore go, and I will be *with thy mouth, and 
teach thee what thou shalt say. 

13 And he said, O my Lord, *send, I pray thee, by the hand 
of him whom thou || wilt send. 

14 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Mo'ses, 
and he said,/8 not Aa'ron the Le' vite thy brother ? I know that 
he can speak well. And also, behold, 'he cometh forth to 
meet thee : and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart. 

16 And "thou shalt speak unto him, and "put words in his 
mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, 
and "will teach you what ye shall do. 

16 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people : and he 
shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and 
"thou shalt be to him instead of God. 

17 And thou shalt take 'this rod in thine hand, wherewith 
thou shalt do signs. 



4 



come, thou and the elders of Is'ra-el, unto the king 
of E'gypt, and ye shall say unto him. The Lord, 
the God of the He'brews, hath met with us : and 
now let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey 
into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the 

19 Lord our God. And I know that the king of 
E'gypt will not give you leave to go, no, not by a 

20 mighty hand. And I will put forth my hand, and 
smite E'gypt with all my wonders which I will do 
in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you 

21 go. And I will give this people favour in the sight 
of the E-gyp'tians : and it shall come to pass, that, 

22 when ye go, ye shall not go empty: but every 
woman shall ask of her neighbour, and of her 
that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and 
jewels of gold, and raiment : and ye shall put them 
upon your sons, and upon your daughters ; and ye 
shall spoil the E-gyp'tians. And Mo'ses answered 
and said. But, behold, they will not believe me, nor 
hearken unto my voice : for they will say. The Lord 

2 hath not appeared unto thee. And the Lord said 
unto him. What is that in thine hand? And he 

3 said, A rod. And he said, Cast it on the ground. 
And he cast it on the ground, and it became a 'ser- 

4 pent ; and Mo'ses fled from before it. And the Lord 
said unto Mo'ses, Put forth thine hand, and take it 
by the tail : (and he put forth his hand, and laid 

5 hold of it, and it became a rod in his hand :) that 
they may believe that the Lord, the God of their 
fathers, the God of A'bra-ham, the God of I'saac, and 

6 the God of Ja'cob, hath appeared unto thee. And 
the Lord said furthermore unto him. Put now thine 
hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into 
his bosom : and when he took it out, behold, his 

7 hand was leprous, as white as snow. And he said. 
Put thine hand into thy bosom again. (And he put 
his hand into his bosom again ; and when he took 
it out of his bosom, behold, it was turned again as 

8 his other flesh.) And it shall come to pass, if they 
will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of 
the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the 

9 latter sign. And it shall come to pass, if they will 
not believe even these two signs, neither hearken 
unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of 
the river, and pour it upon the dry land : and the 
water which thou takest out of the river shall be- 

10 come blood upon the dry land. And Mo'ses said 
unto the Lord, Oh Lord, I am not ^eloquent, neither 
heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy serv- 
ant : for I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. 

11 And the Lord said unto him, Who hath made man's 
mouth ? or who maketh a man dumb, or deaf, or 

12 seeing, or blind ? is it not I the Lord ? Now there- 
fore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach 

13 thee what thou shalt speak. And he said, Oh Lord, 
send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou 

14 wilt send. And the anger of the Lord was kindled 
against Mo'ses, and he said. Is there not Aa'ron thy 
brother the Le'vite? I know that he can speak 
well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet 
thee : and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his 

15 heart. And thou shalt speak unto him, and put the 
words in his mouth : and I will be with thy mouth, 
and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye 

16 shall do. And he shall be thy spokesman unto the 
people : and it shall come to pass, that he shall be 
to thee a mouth, and thou shalt be to him as God. 

17 And thou shalt take In thine hand this rod, where- 
with thou shalt do the signs.

18 ^And Mo'ses went and returned to f Je'thro his father 
in law, and said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and re- 
turn unto my brethren which are in E'gypt, and see whether 
they be yet alive. And Je'thro said to Mo'ses, Go in peace. 

19 And the Loed said unto Mo'ses in Mid'i-an, Go, return 
into. E'gypt: for 'all the men are dead which sought thy life. 

20 And Mo'ses took his wife, and his sons, and set them 
upon an ass, and he returned to the land of E'gypt : and 
Mo'ses took 'the rod of God in his hand. 

21 *f[And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, When thou goest to 
return into E'gypt, see that thou do all those 'wonders be- 
fore Pha'raoh, which I have put in thine hand : but "I will 
harden his heart that he shall not let the people go. 

22 And thou shalt say unto Pha'raoh, Thus saith the 
Loed, ''Is'ra-el is my son, "even my firstborn : 

23 And I say unto thee. Let my son go, that he may 
serve me : and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, ^I will 
slay thy son, even thy firstborn. 

24 ^And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the 
Loed "met him, and sought to ""kill him. 

25 Then Zip-po'rah took "a sharp || stone, and cut off the 
foreskin of her son, and feast it at his feet, and said. Surely 
a bloody husband art thou to me. 

26 So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband 
thou art, because of the circumcision. 

27 ^And the Lord said to Aa'ron, Go into the wilderness 
''to meet Mo'ses. And he went, and met him in the mount 
of God, and kissed him. 

28 And Mo'ses -told Aa'ron all the words of the Lord who 
had sent him, and all the "signs which he had commanded him. 

29 IJAnd Mo'ses and Aa'ron 'went, and gathered together 
all the elders of the children of Is'ra-el : 

30 And Aa'ron spake all the words which the Lord had 
spoken unto Mo'ses, and did the signs in the sight of the 
people. 

31 And the people ^believed: and when they heard that 
the Lord had 'visited the children of Is'ra-el,and that he "had 
looked upon their affliction, then "they bowed their heads 
and worshipped. 

CHAPTER V. 

Pharaoh chideih Moses and Aaron— He increaseth the Israelites^ task. 

AND afterward Mo'ses and Aa'ron went in, and told Pha'- 
raoh, Thus saith the Loed God of Is'ra-el, Let my people 
go, that they may hold "a feast unto me in the wilderness. 

2 And Pha'raoh said, ''Who is the Lord, that I should 
obey Kis voice to let Is'ra-el go? I know not the Lord, 
"neither will I let Is'ra-el go. 

3 And they said, ''The God of the He'brews hath met with 
us: let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the 
desert, and sacrifice unto the Lord our God; lest he fall 
upon us with pestilence, or with the sword. 

4 And the king of E'gypt said unto them. Wherefore do 
ye, Mo'ses and Aa'ron, let the people from their works? get 
you unto your 'burdens. 

5 And Pha'raoh said, Behold, the people of the land now 
are ■''many, and ye make them rest from their burdens. 

6 And Pha'raoh commanded the same day the "taskmasters 
of the people, and their officers, saying, 

7 Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, 
as heretofore : let them go and gather straw for themselves. 

8 And the tale of the bricks, which they did make hereto- 
fore, ye shall lay upon them ; ye shall not diminish aught 
thereof: for they be idle ; therefore they cry, saying. Let us 
go and sacrifice to our God. 

9 tLet there more work be laid upon the men, that they 
may labour therein ; and let them not regard vain words. 

10 ^And the taskmasters of the people went out, and 
their officers, and they spake to the people, saying. Thus 
saith Pha'raoh, I will not give you straw. 



18 And Mo'ses went and returned to 'Je'thro his 
father in law, and said unto him. Let me go, I pray 
thee, and return unto my brethren which are in 
E'gypt, and see whether they be vet alive. And 

19 Je'thro said to Mo'ses, Go in peace. And the Lord 
said unto Mo'ses in Mid'i-an, Go, return into E'gypt : 
for all the men are dead which sought thy life. 

20 And Mo'ses took his wife and his sons, and set 
them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of 
E'gypt : and Mo'ses took the rod of God in his hand. 

21 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, When thou goest 
back into E'gypt, see that thou do before Pha'raoh all 
the wonders which I have put in thine hand : but I 
will ^harden his heart, and he will not let the people 

22 go. And thou shalt say unto Pha'raoh, Thus saith 

23 the Lord, Is'ra-el is my son, my firstborn : and I have 
said unto thee. Let my son go, that he may serve 
me ; and thou hast refused to let him go : behold, I 

24 will slay thy son, thy firstborn. And it came to 
pass on the way at the lodging place, that the Lord 

25 met him, and sought to kill him. 'Then Zip-po'rah 
took a flint, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and 
^cast it at his feet ; and she said. Surely a bridegroom 

26 of blood art thou to me. So he let him alone. Then 
she said, *A bridegroom of blood art thou, because of 
the circumcision. 

27 And the Lord said to Aa'ron, Go into the wilder- 
ness to meet Mo'ses. And he went, and met him in 

28 the mountain of God, and kissed him. And Mo'ses 
told Aa'ron all the words of the Lord wherewith he 
had sent him, and all the signs wherewith he had 

29 charged him. And Mo'ses and Aa'ron went and 
gathered together all the elders of the children of 

30 Is'ra-el : and Aa'ron spake all the words which the 
Lord had spoken unto Mo'ses, and did the signs in 

31 the sight of the people. And the people believed 
and when they heard that the Lord had visited the 
children of Is'ra-el, and that he had seen their afflic- 

K tion, then they bowed their heads and worshipped. 

V And afterward Mo'ses and Aa'ron came, and said 
unto Pha'raoh, Thus saith the Lord, the God of 
Is'ra-el, Let my people go, that they may hold a 

2 feast unto me in the wilderness. And Pha'raoh 
said. Who is the Lord, that I should hearken unto 
his voice to let Is'ra-el go? I know not the Lord, 

Sand moreover I will not let Is'ra-el go. And they 
said. The God of the He'brews hath met with us: 
let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the 
wilderness, and sacrifice unto the Lord our God; 
lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the 

4 sword. And the king of E'gypt said unto them. 
Wherefore do ye, Mo'ses and Aa'ron, loose the 

• people from their works? get you unto your 

5 burdens. And Pha'raoh said. Behold, the people 
of the land are now many, and ye make them 

6 rest from their burdens. And the same day Pha'- 
raoh commanded the taskmasters of the people, and 

7 their officers, saying. Ye shall no more give the 
people straw to make brick, as heretofore : let them 

8 go and gather straw for themselves. And the tale 
of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye 
shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish aught 
thereof: for they be idle ; therefore they cry, saying, 

9 Let us go and sacrifice to our God. Let heavier 
work be laid upon the men, that they may la- 
bour therein; and let them not regard lying words. 

10 And the taskmasters of the people went out, and 
their officers, and they spake to the people, say- 
ing. Thus saith Pha'raoh, I will not give you straw.

11 Go ye, get you straw where you can find it: yet not 
aught of your work shall be diminished. 

12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the 
land of E'gypt to gather stubble instead of straw. 

13 And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your 
works, your fdaily tasks, as when there was straw. 

14 And the oificers of the children of Is'ra-el, which Pha'- 
raoh's taskmasters had set o v er them, were beaten, and de- 
manded. Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in mak- 
ing brick both yesterday and to-day, as heretofore? 

15 ^Then the officers of the children of Is'ra-el came and 
cried unto Pha'raoh, saying, "Wherefore dealest thou thus 
with thy servants? 

16 There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they 
say to us. Make brick : and, behold, thy servants are beaten ; 
but the fault is in thine own people. 

17 But he said. Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say. 
Let us go and do sacrifice to tho Lord. 

18 Go therefore now, and work ; for there shall no straw 
be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks. 

19 And the officers of the children of Is'ra-el did see that 
they were in evil case, after it was said. Ye shall not minish 
aught from your bricks of your daily task. 

20 ^And they met Mo'ses and Aa'ron, who stood in the 
way, as they came forth from Pha'raoh : 

21 *And they said unto them, The Lord look upon you, 
and judge; because ye have made our savour fto be ab- 
horred in the eyes of Pha'raoh, and in the eyes of his serv- 
ants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us. 

22 And Mo'ses returned unto the " iORD, and said. Lord, 
wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people ? why is it 
that thou hast sent me ? 

23 For since I camo to Pha'raoh to speak in thy name, he 
hath done evil to this people : fieither hast thou delivered 
thy people at all. 

CHAPTEn VI. 

Cod reneweth his promise by his name JEHOVAH. 

THEN the Lord said unto Mo'ses,Now shalt thou oce v hat I 
will do to Pha'raoh: for "with a strong hand shall i ■ kt Ihem 
go, and with a strong hand 'shall he drive them out of his land. 

2 And God spake unto Mo'ses, and said unto him, I am 
II the Lord: 

3 And I appeared unto A'bra-ham, unto I'saac, 3,nd unto 
Ja'cob, by the name of 'God Almighty; but by my name 
•'JEHOVAH was I not known to them. 

4 'And I have also established my covenant with then, 
■^to give them the land of Ca'naan, the land jI their pilgrim- 
age, wherein they were strangers. 

5 And "I have also hoard the groaning of the children of 
Is'ra-el, whom th ^ E-gyp'tians keep in bondage ; and I have 
remembered my covenant. 

6 Wherefore say unto the children of Is'ra-el, *I am the 
Lord, and 'I will bring you out from under the burdens of 
the E-gyp'tians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, 
and I will ^redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with 
great judgments : 

7 And I will 'take you to me for a people, and "I will be 
to you a God : and ye shall know that I am the Lord your 
God, which bringeth you out "from under the burdens of 
the E-gyp'tians. 

8 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the 
which I did fswear to give it to A'bra-ham, to I'saac, and to 
Ja'cob ; and I will give it you for a heritage : I am the Lord. 

9 ^And Mo'ses spake so unto the children of Is'ra-el : "but 
they hearkened not unto Mo'ses for fanguish of spirit, and 
for cruel bondage. 

10 And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses, saying, 

1 1 Go in, speak unto Pha'raoh king of E'gypt, that he let 
the children of Is'ra-el go out of his land. 



11 Go yourselves, get you straw where ye can find 
it: for nought of your work shall be diminished. 

12 So the people were scattered abroad throughout all 

13 the land of E'gypt to gather stubble for straw. And 
the taskmasters were urgent, saying. Fulfil your 
works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw. 

14 And the officers of the children of Is'ra-el, which 
Pha'raoh's taskmasters had set over them, were 
beaten, 'and demanded. Wherefore have ye not 
fulfilled your task both yesterday and to-day, in 

15 making brick as heretofore? Then the officers of 
the children of Is'ra-el came and cried unto Pha'raoh, 
saying. Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy serv- 

16 ants? There is no straw given unto thy servants, 
and they say to us, Make brick : and, behold, thy 
servants are beaten ; but the fault is in thine own 

17 people. But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: 
therefore ye say. Let us go and sacrifice to the 

18 Lord. Go therefore now, and work; for there 
shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver 

19 the tale of bricks. And the officers of the children 
of Is'ra-el did see that they ^were in evil case, when 
it was said, Ye shall not minish aught from your 

20 bricks, your daily tasks. And they met Mo'ses and 
Aa'ron, who stood in the way, as they came forth 

21 from Pha'raoh : and they said unto them. The Lord 
look upon you, and judge; because ye have made 
our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pha'raoh, 
and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in 

22 their hand to slay us. And Mo'ses r:!turned unto 
the Lord, and said, Lord, wherefore hast thou evil 
entreated this people ? why is it that thou hast sent 

23 me ? For since I came to Pha'raoh to speak in thy 

6 name, be hath evil entreated this people; neither 
hast thou delivered thy people at all. And the 
Lord said unto Mo'ses, Now shalt thou see what 
I will do to Pha'raoh: for by a strong hand, shall 
he let them go, and by a strong hand shall he drive 
them out of his land. 

2 And God spake unto Mo'ses, and said unto 

3 him, I ari. jeuovah : and I appeared unto A'bra- 
ham, unto I'saac, and unto Ja'cob, as 'God Almighty, 
but ^by my name jehovah I was not 'known to 

4 them. J^nd I have also established my covenant 
with thcra, to jive them the land of Ca'naan, the 
land of their sojournings, wherein they sojourned 

5 Anti moreover I have heard the groaning of the 
children of Is'ra-el, whom the E-gyp'tians keep in 
bondage ; and I have ramembered my covenant. 

6 AVherefore say unto the children of Is'ra-e., I am 
Jehovah, and I will bring you out from under the 
burdens of the E-gyp'tians, and I will rid you out 
of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a 

7 stretched out arm, and with great judgements : and 
I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to 
you a God: and ye shall know that I am Jehovah 
your God, which bringeth you out from under 

8 the burdens of the E-gyp'tians. And I will bring 
you in unto the land, concerning which I lifted up 
my hand to give it to A'bra-ham, to I'saac, and to 
Ja'cob ; and I will give it to you for an heritage : I 

9 am Jehovah. And Mo'ses spake so unto the chil- 
dren of Is'ra-el : but they hearkened not unto Mo'ses 
for 'anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage. 

1 And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses, saying, 

11 Go in, speak unto Pha'raoh king of E'gypt, that

12 And Mo'ses spake before the Lord, saying, Behold, the 
children of Is'ra-el have 'not hearkened unto me ; how then 
shall Pha'raoh hear me, 'who am of uncircumcised lips ? 

13 And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses and unto Aa'ron, and 
gave them a charge unto the children of Is'ra-el, and unto 
Pha'raoh king of E'gypt, to bring the children of Is'ra-el 
out of the laud of E'gypt. 

14 ^These be the heads of their fathers' houses : 'The sons

Lord : "speak thou unto Pha'raoh king of E'gypt all that I 
say unto thee. 

30 And Mo'ses said before the Lord, Behold, "I am of un-

2 Thou "shalt speak all that I command thee ; and Aa'ron 
thy brother shall speak unto Pha'raoh, that he send the

5 And the E-gyp'tians 'shall know that I am the Lord, 
when I *stretch forth mine hand upon E'gypt, and bring out 
the children of Is'ra-el from among them. 



12 And Mo'ses spake before the Lord, saying. Behold, 
the children of Is'ra-el have not hearkened unto me ; 
how then shall Pha'raoh hear me, who am of uncir 

13cumcised lips? And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses

25 saph ; these are the &milies of the Ko'ra-hites. And 
El-e-a'zar Aa'ron's son took him one of the daughters 
of Pu'ti-el to wife; and shf bare him Phin'e-has. 
These are the heads of the &*hers' houses of the 

26 Le'vites according to their families^ These are that 
Aa'ron and Mo'ses, to whom the Lord said. Bring 
out the children of Is'ra-el from the land of E'gypt 

27 according to their hosts. These are they which 
spake to Pha'raoh king of E'gypt, to bring out the 
children of Is'ra-el from E'gypt : these are that Mo'ses 
and Aa'ron. 

28 And it came to pass on the day when the Lord 

29 spake unto Mo'ses in the land of E'gypt, that the 
Lord spake unto Mo'ses, saying, I am the Lord 
speak thou unto Pha'raoh king of E'gypt all that I 

30 speak unto thee. And Mo'ses said before the Lord, 

7 Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall 
Pha'raoh hearken unto me? And the Lord said 
unto Mo'ses, See, I have made thee a god to 
Pha'raoh : and Aa'ron thy brother shall be thy 

2 prophet. Thou shalt speak all that I command 
thee : and Aa'ron tfiy brother shall speak unto 
Pha'raoh, that he let the children of Is'ra-el go out 

3 of his land. And I will harden Pha'raoh's heart, 
and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land 

4 of E'gypt. But Pha'raoh will not hearken unto 
you, and I will lay my hand upon E'gypt, and bring 
forth my hosts, my people the children of Is'ra-el, 

6 out of the land of E'gypt by great judgements. And 
the E-gyp'tians shall kn'ow that I am the Lord, 
when I stretch forth mine hand upon E'gypt, and 
bring out the children of Is'ra-el from among them.

6 And Mo'ses and Aa'ron 'did as the Lord commanded 
them, so did they. 

7 And Mo'ses was ""fourscore years old, and Aa'ron four- 
score and three years old, when they spake unto Pha'raoh. 

8 ^And the Loed spake unto Mo'ses, and unto Aa'ron, 
saying, 

9 W hen Pha'raoh shall speak unto you, saying,"Shew a mir- 
acle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aa'ron, "Take thy 
rod, and cast t< before Pha'raoh, and it shall become a serpent. 

10 *|lAnd Mo'ses and Aa'ron went in unto Pha'raoh, and 
they did so "as the Lord had commanded : and Aa'ron cast 
down his rod before Pha'raoh, and before his servants, and 
it "became a serpent. 

11 Then Pha'raoh also 'called the wise men and 'the 
sorcerers: now the magicians of E'gypt, they also 'did in 
like manner with their enchantments. 

12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became 
serpents : but Aa'ron's rod swallowed up their rods. 

13 And he hardened Pha'raoh's heart that he hearkened 
not unto them ; "as the LoKD had said. 

14 TJAnd the Lord said unto Mo'ses, 'Pha'raoh's heart is 
hardened, he refuseth to let the people go. 

15 Get thee unto Pha'raoh in the morning; lo, he goeth 
out unto the water; and thou shalt stand by the river's 
brink against he come ; and ''the rod which was turned to a 
serpent shalt thou take in thine hand. 

16 And thou shalt say unto him, 'The Lord God of the 
He'brews hath sent me unto thee, saying. Let my people go, 
"that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, 
hitherto thou wouldest not hear. 

17 Thus .'Baith the Lord, In this Hhou shalt know that T am 
the Lord : behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine 
hand upon the waters which are in the river, and "they shall 
be turned "-'to blood. 

18' And the fish that i« in the river shall die, and the river 
shall stink ; and the E-gyp'tians shall 'loathe to drink of the 
water of the river. 

19 ^And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses, Say unto Aa'ron,, 
Take thy rod, and -'stretch out thine hand upon the water.s 
of E'gypt,u])on their streams, upon their rivers,and upon their 
ponds, and upon all their tpools of water, that they may bcr- 
corae blood ; and that there may be blood throughout all the 
land of E'gypt, both iu vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone. 

20 And Mo'.ses and Aa'ron did so , as the Lord com^ 
manded ; and he "lifted up the rod, and smote the waters 
that were in the river, in the sight of Pha'raoh, and iu the 
sight of his servants; and all the *waters that mere in the 
river were turned to blood. 

21 And the fish that was in the river died ; and the river 
stank, and the E-gyp'tians 'could not drink of the water of 
the river ; and there was blood throughout all the land of 

22 *And the magicians of E'gypt did so with their enchant- 
ments : and Pha'raoh's heart was hardened, neither did he 
hearken unto them; 'as the Lord had said. 

23 And Pha'raoh turned and went into his house, neither 
did he set his heart to this also. 

24 And all the E-gyp'tians digged round about the river 
for water to drink ; for they co'uld not drink of the water of 
the river. 

25 And seven days were fulfilled, after that the Lord 
had smitten the river. 

CHAPTER VIII. 

Frogs are sent—Pharaoh incUrteth to let the people go, but yet u hardened, 

AND the Lord spake unto Mo'ses, Go unto Pha'raoh, 
and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people 
go, "that they may serve me. 

2 And if thou ''refuse to let tKem. go, behold, I will smite 
all thy borders with "^frogs : 



6 And Mo'ses and Aa'ron did so; a.s the Lord com- 

7 manded them, so did they. And Mo'ses was four- 
score years old, and Aa'ron fourscore and three 
years old, when they spake unto Pha'raoh. 

8 And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses and unto 

9 Aa'ron, saying. When Pha'raoh shall speak unto 
you, saying. Shew a wonder for you: then thou 
shalt say unto Aa'ron, Take thy rod, and cast it 
down before Pha'raoh, that it become a 'serpent. 

10 And Mo'ses and Aa'ron went in unto Pha'raoh, and 
they did so, as the Lord had commanded : and 
Aa'ron cast down his rod before Pha'raoh and before 

1 1 his servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pha'raoh 
also called for the wise men and the sorcerers : and 
they also, the 'magicians of E'gypt, did in like 

12 manner with their ^enchantments. For they cast 
down every man his rod, and they became serpents : 

13 but Aa'ron's rod swallowed up their rods. And 
Pha'raoh's heart Svas hardened, and he nearkened 
not unto them; as the Lord had spoken. 

14 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Pha'raoh's heart 

15 is 'stubborn, he refuseth to let the people go. Get 
thee unto Pha'raoh in the morning ; lo, he goeth out 
unto the water; and thou shalt stand by the river's 
brink to meet him ; and the rod which was turned 

16 to a 'serpent shalt thou take in thine hand. And 
thou shalt say unto him, the Lord, the God of the 
He'brews, hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my 
people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness : 

17 and, behold, hitherto thou hast not hearkened; Thus 
saith the Lord, In this thou shalt know that I am 
the Lord : behold, I will smite with the rod that is 
in mine hand upon the waters which are in the 

ISrivcr, and they shall be turned to blood. And the 
fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall 
stink; and the E-gyp'tians shall loathe to drink 

19 water from the river. And the Lord said unto 
Mo'ses, Say unto Aa'ron, Take thy rod, and stretch 
out thine hand over the waters of E'gypt, over their 
rivers, over their 'streams, and over their pools, and 
over all their ponds of water, that they may become 
blood ; and there shall be blood throughout all the 
land of E'gypt, both in vessels of wood and in ves- 

20sels of stone. And Mo'ses and Aa'ron did so, as the 
Lord commanded ; and he lifted up the rod, and 
smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight 
of Pha'raoh, and in the sight of his servants ; and 
all the waters that were in the river were turned to 

21 bloodi And the fish that was in the river died ; and 
the river stank, and the E-gyp'tians could not drink 
water from the river ; and the blood was throughout 

22 all the land of E'gypt. And the magicians of 
E'gypt did in like manner with their enchantments : 
and Pha'raoh's heart ''was hardened, and he heark- 
ened not unto them; as the Lord had spoken. 

23 And Pha'raoh turned and went into his house, 

24 neither did he 'lay even this to heart. And all the 
E-gyp'tians digged round about the river for water to 
drink ; for they could not drink of the water of the 

25 river. And seven days were fulfilled, after that the 
Lord had smitten the river. 

O And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses, Go in unto 
Pha'raoh, and say unto him. Thus saith the Lord, 
Let my people go, that they may serve 
2 me. And if thou refuse to let them go, be- 
hold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs :

3 And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which 
shall go up and come into thine house, and into ''thy bed- 
chamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy 
servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and 
into thy || kneadingtroughs : 

4 And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon 
thy people, and upon all thy servants. 

5 Tf And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses, Say unto Aa'ron, 
'Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, 
over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come 
up upon the land of E'gypt. 

6 And Aa'ron stretched out his hand over the waters of 
E'gypt ; and -^the frogs came up, and covered the land of 
E'gypt. 

7 "And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and 
brought up frogs upon the land of E'gypt. 

8 ^Then Pha'raoh called for Mo'ses and Aa'ron, and said, 
'Entreat the Lord, that he may take away the frogs from 
me, and from my people ; and I will let the people go, that 
they may do sacrifice unto the Lord. 

9 And Mo'ses said unto Pha'raoh, ||Glory over me : ||when 
shall I entreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy 
people, fto destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that 
they may remain in the river only ? 

10 And he said, || To-morrow. And he said. Be it accord- 
ing to thy word ; that thou mayest know that.'there is none 
like unto the Lord our God. 

11 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy 
houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they 
shall remain in the river only. 

12 ^And Mo'ses and Aa'ron went out from Pha'raoh : and 
Mo'ses *cried unto the Lord because of the frogs which he 
had brought against Pha'raoh. 

13 And the Lord did according to the word of Mo'ses ; 
and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and 
out of the fields. 

14 And they gathered them together upon heaps ; and the 
land stank. 

15 But when Pha'raoh saw that there . was 'respite, "he 
hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them ; as the 
Lord had said. 

16 TIAnd the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Say unto A'aron, 
Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it 
may become lice throughout all the land of E'gypt. 

17 And they did so ; for Aa'ron stretched out his hand 
with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and "it became 
lice in man, and in beast ; all the dust of the land became 
lice throughout all the land of E'gypt. 

18 And "the magicians did so with their enchantments to 
bring forth lice, but they "could not : so there were lice upon 
man, and upon beast. 

19 Then the magicians said unto Pha'raoh, This is "the 
finger of God : and Pha'raoh's 'heart was hardened, and he 
hearkened not unto them ; as the Lord had said. 

20 ^And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, 'Rise up early in the 
morning, and stand before Pha'raoh ; lo, he cometh forth 
to the water ; and say unto him. Thus saith the Lord, 'Let 
my people go, that they may serve me. 

21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will 
send llswarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, 
and upon thy people, and into thy houses : and the houses 
of the E-gyp'tians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also 
the ground whereon they are. 

22 And "I will sever in that day the land of Go'shen, in 
which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be 
there ; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in 
the midst of the earth. 

23 And I will put fa division between my people and thy 
people : ijto-morrow shall this sign be. 



Sand the river shall swarm with frogs, which shall 
go up and come into thine house, and into thy bed- 
chamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of 
thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine 

4 ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs : and the frogs 
shall come up both upon thee, and upon thy people, 

5 and upon all thy servants. And the Lord said unto 
Mo'ses, Say unto Aa'ron, Stretch forth thine hand 
with thy rod over the rivers, over the 'streams, and 
over the pools, and cau.se frogs to come up upon 

6 the land of E'gypt. And Aa'ron stretched out his 
hand over the waters of E'gypt ; and the frogs came 

7 up, and covered the land of E'gypt. And the ma- 
gicians did in like manner with their enchantments, 
and brought up frogs upon the land of E'gypt. 

8 Then Pha'raoh called for Mo'ses and Aa'ron, and 
said, Intreat the Lord, that he take away the frogs 
from me, and from my people ; and I will let the 
people go, that they may sacrifice unto the Lord. 

9 And Mo'ses said unto Pha'raoh, Have thou this glory 
over me : against what time shall I intreat for thee, 
and for thy servants, and for thy people, that the 
frogs be destroyed from thee and thy houses, and 

10 remain in the river only ? And he said. Against to- 
morrow. And he said. Be it according to thy word: 
that thou mayest know that there is none like unto 

11 the Lord our God. And the frogs shall depart 
from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy serv 
ants, and from thy people ; they shall remain in the 

12 river only. And Mo'ses and Aa'ron went out from 
Pha'raoh : and Mo'ses cried unto the Lord concern- 
ing the frogs ^which he had brought upon Pha'raoh 

13 And the Lord did according to the word of Mo'ses ; 
and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the 

14 courts, and out of the fields. And they gathered 

15 them together in heaps : and the land stank. But 
when Pha'raoh saw that there was respite, he ^hard 
ened his heart, and hearkened not unto them ; as 
the Lord had spoken. 

16 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Say unto Aa'ron, 
Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the earth, 
that it may become *lice throughout all the land of 

17 E'gypt. And they did so ; and Aa'ron stretched out 
his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the 
earth, and there were lice upon man, and upon beast; 
all the dust of the earth became lice throughout all 

18 the land of E'gypt. And the magicians did so with 
their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could 
not : and there were lice upon man, and upon beast. 

19 Then the magicians said unto Pha'raoh, This is the 
finger of God : and Pha'raoh's heart ''was hardened, 
and he hearkened not unto them ; as the Lord had 
spoken. 

20 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Rise up early in 
the morning, and stand before Pha'raoh ; lo, he com- 
eth forth to the water ; and say unto him, Thus saith 
the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve 

21 me. Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, be- 
hold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and 
upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into 
thy houses : and the houses of the E-gyp'tians shall 
be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground 

22 whereon they are. And I will sever in that day 
the land of Go'shen, in which my people dwell, that 
no swarms of flies shall be there ; to the end thou 
mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the 

23 earth.- And I will *put a division between my peo- 
ple and thy people : by to-morrow shall this sign be.

24 And the Lord did so ; and "^there came a grievous 
swarm of flies into the house of Pha'raoh, and into his servants' 
houses, and into all the land of E'gypt : the land was || cor- 
rupted by reason of the swarm of flies. 

25 ^And Pha'raoh called for Mo'ses, and for Aa'ron, and 
said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land. 

26 And Mo'ses said, It is not meet so to do ; for we shall 
sacrifice "the abomination of the E-gyp'tians to the LoRD our 
God : lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the E-gyp'- 
tians before their eyes, and will they not stone us? 

27 We will go 'three days' journey into the wilderness, 
and sacrifice to the Lord our God, as "he shall command us. 

28 And Pha'raoh said, I will let you go, that ye may 
sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only ye 
shall not go very far away : 'entreat for me. 

29 And Mo'ses said. Behold, I go out from thee, and I will 
entreat the Lord that the swarms of flies may depart from 
Pha'raoh, from his servants, and from his people, to-morrow : 
but let not Pha'raoh 'deal deceitfully any more in not letting 
the people go to sacrifice to the Lord. 

30 And Mo'ses went out from Pha'raoh, and ''entreated the 
Lord. 

31 And the Lord did according to the word of Mo'ses; 
and he removed the swarms of flies from Pha'raoh, from his 
servants, and from his people ; there remained not one. 

32 And Pha'raoh 'hardened his heart at this time also, 
neither would he let the people go. 

CHAPTER IX. 

Murrain of beasts — Pharaoh sue/h to Moses, but yet is hardened. 

THEN the Lord said unto Mo'ses, °Go in unto Pha'raoh, 
and tell him. Thus saith the Lord God of the He'brews, 
Let my people go, that they may serve me. 

2 For if thou 'refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still, 

3 Behold, the "hand of the Lord is upon thy cattle which 
is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the 
camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep : ihere shall be a 
very grievous murrain. 

4 And "^he Lord shall sever between the cattle of Is'ra-el 
and the cattle of E'gypt : and there shall nothing die of all 
thcd is the children's of Is'ra-el. 

5 And the Lord appointed a set time, saying, To-morrow 
the Lord shall do this thing in the land. 

6 And the Lord did that thing on the morrow, and 'all 
the cattle of E'gypt died : but of the cattle of the children 
of Is'ra-el died not one. 

7 And Pha'raoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the 
cattle of the Is'ra-el-ites dead. And -the heart of Pha'raoh 
was hardened, and he did not let the people go. 

8 ^And the Lord said unto Mo'ses and linto Aa'ron, Take 
to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Mo'ses 
sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pha'raoh. 

9 And it shall become small dust in all the land of E'gypt, 
and shall be "a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, 
and upon beast, throughout all the land of E'gypt. 

10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before 
Pha'raoh ; and Mo'ses sprinkled it up toward heaven ; and 
it became ''a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and 
upon beast. 

11 And the 'magicians could not stand before Mo'ses 
because of the boils ; for the boil was upon the magicians, 
and upon all the E-gyp'tians. 

12 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pha'raoh, and he 
hearkened not unto them; *as the Lord had spoken unto 
Mo'ses. 

13 ^And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, 'Rise up early in 
the morning, and stand before Pha'raoh, and say unto him. 
Thus saith the Lord God of the He'brews, Let my people 
go, that they may serve me. 



24 And the Lord did so ; and there came grievous 
swarms of flies into the house of Pha'raoh, and into 
his servants' houses : and in all the land of E'gypt 
the land was 'corrupted by reason of the swarms of 

25 flies. And Pha'raoh called for Mo'ses and for Aa'ron, 
and said. Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land 

26 And Mo'ses said, It is not meet so to do; for we 
shall sacrifice the abomination of the E-gj'p'tians to the 
Lord our God : lo, shall we sacrifice the abomina 
tion of the E-gyp'tians before their eyes, and will they 

27 not stone us ? We will go three days' journey into 
the wilderness, and sacrifice to the Lord our God, 

28 as he shall command us. And Pha'raoh said, I will 
let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the Lord your 
God in the wilderness ; only ye shall not go very 

29 far away : intreat for me. And Mo'ses said. Behold, 
I go out from thee, and I will intreat the Lord that 
the swarms of flies may depart from Pha'raoh, from 
his servants, and from his people, to-morrow : only 
let not Pha'raoh deal deceitfully any more in not 

30 letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord. And 
Mo'ses went out from Pha'raoh, and intreated the 

31 Lord. And the Lord did according to the word 
of Mo'ses ; and he removed the swarms of flies from 
Pha'raoh, from his servants, and from his people ; 

32 there remained not one. And Pha'raoh ^hardened 
his heart this time also, and he did not let the peo- 
ple go. 

V Then the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Go in unto 
Pha'raoh, and tell him, Thus saith the Lord, the 
God of the He'brews, Let my people go, that they 

2 may serve me. For if thou refuse to let them go, 

3 and wilt hold them still, behold, the hand of the 
Lord is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon 
the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon 
the herds, and upon the flocks : there shall be a very 

4 grievous murrain. And the Lord shall sever be 
tween the cattle of Is'ra-el and the cattle of E'gypt 
and there shall nothing die of all that belongeth to 

5 the children of Is'ra-el. And the Lord appointed a 
set time saying. To-morrow the Lord shall do this 

6 thing in the land. And the Lord did that thing on 
the morrow, and all the cattle of E'gypt died : but of 

7 the cattle of the children of Is'ra-el died not one. And 
Pha'raoh sent, and, behold, there was not so much as 
one of the cattle of the Is'ra-el-ites dead. But the 
heart of Pha'raoh was 'stubborn, and he did not let 
the people go. 

8 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses and unto Aa'ron, 
Take to you handfuls of ^ashes of the furnace, and 
let Mo'ses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight 

9 of Pha'raoh. And it shall become small dust over 
all the land of E'gypt, and shall be a bod breaking 
forth with blains upon man and upon beast, through- 

10 out all the land of E'gypt. And they took ashes of 
the furnace, and stood before Pha'raoh ; and Mo'ses 
sprinkled it up toward heaven ; and it became a boil 
breaking forth with blains upon man and upon 

11 beast. And the magicians could not stand before 
Mo'ses because of the boils ; for the boils were upon 

12 the magicians, and upon all the E-gyp'tians. And 
the Lord 'hardened the heart of Pha raoh, and he 
hearkened not unto them ; as the Lord had spoken 
unto Mo'ses. 

13 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Rise up early in 
the morning, and stand before Pha'raoh, and say un- 
to him, Thus saith the Lord, the God of the He'- 
brews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine 
heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people ; "that 
thou may est know that there is none like me in all the earth. 

15 For now I will "stretch out my hand, that I may smite 
thee and thy people with pestilence ; and thou shalt be cut 
off from the earth. 

16 And in very deed for "this catise have I fraised thee 
up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may 
be declared throughout all the earth. 

17 As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that 
thou wilt not let them go ? 

18 Behold, to-morrow about this time I will cause it to 
rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in E'gypt 
since the foundation thereof even until now. 

19 Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that 
thou hast in the field ; for upon every man and beast which 
shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, 
the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die. 

20 He that feared the word of the Lord among the servants 
of Pha'raoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses: 

21 And he that fregarded not the word of the Lobd left 
his servants and his cattle in the field. 

22 ^And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Stretch forth thine 
hand toward heaven, that there may be *hail in all the land 
of E'gypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb 
of the field, throughout the land of E'gypt. 

23 And Mo'ses stretched forth his rod toward heaven : and 
'the Lord sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon 
the ground; and the Lord rained hail upon the land of 
E'gypt. 

24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very 
grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of 
E'gypt since it became a nation. 

25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of E'gypt all 
that was in the field, both man and beast ; and the hail ''smote 
every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field. 

26 'Only in the land of Go'shen, where the children of 
Is'ra-el were, was there no hail. 

27 ^IJAnd Pha'raoh sent, and called for Mo'ses and Aa'ron, 
and said unto them, 'I have sinned this time : "the Lord is 
righteous, and I and my people are wicked. 

28 ''Entreat the Lord (for it is enough) that there be no 
more fmighty thunderings and hail ; and I will let you go, 
and ye shall stay no longer. 

29 And Mo'ses said unto him. As soon as I am gone out of 
the city, I will "spread abroad my hands unto the Lord ; and 
the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail ; 
that thou mayest know how that the 'earth is the Lord's. 

30 But as for thee and thy servants, "I know that ye will 
not yet fear the Lord God. 

31 And the flax and the barley was smitten : 'for the barley 
was in the ear, and the flax was boiled. 

32 But the wheat and the rye were not smitten : for they 
were fnot grown up. 

33 And Mo'ses went out of the city from Pha'raoh, and 
"spread abroad his hands unto the Lord : and the thunders 
and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth. 

34 And when Pha'raoh saw that the rain and the hail and 
the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened 
his heart, he and his servants. 

35 And ''the heart of Pha'raoh was hardened, neither would 
he let the children of Is'ra-el go ; as the Lord had spoken 
fby Mo'ses. 

CHAPTER X. 

Pharaoh inclineth la let the Israelites go— Plague of the locusts. 

AND the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Go in unto Pha'raoh : 
"for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his 
servants, 'that I might shew these my signs before him : 
2 And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, 



14 For I will this time send all my plagues upon 
thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy 
people ; that thou mayest know that there is none 

15 like me in all the earth. For now I had put forth 
my hand, and smitten thee and thy people with 
pestilence, and thou hadst been cut off from the 

16 earth: but in very deed for this cause have I made 
thee to stand, for to shew thee my power, and that 
my name may be declared throughout all the earth. 
17 As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that 
18 thou wilt not let them go? Behold, to-morrow 
about this time I will cause it to rain a very griev- 
ous hail, such as hath not been in E'gypt since the 

19 day it was founded even until now. Now therefore 
send, hasten in thy cattle and all that thou hast in 
the field ; for every man and beast which shall be 
found in the field, and shall not be brought home, 
the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall 

20 die. He that feared the word of the Lord among 
the servants of Pha'raoh made his servants and his 

21 cattle flee into the houses : and he that regarded not 
the word of the Lord left his servants and his cattle 
in the field. 

22 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Stretch forth 
thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail 
in all the land of E'gypt, upon man, and upon beast, 
and upon every h#rb of the field, throughout the 

23 land of E'gypt. And Mo'ses stretched forth his rod 
toward heaven : and the Lord sent thunder and 
hail, and fire ran down unto the earth ; and the Lord 

24 rained hail upon the land of E'gypt. So there was 
hail, and fire 'mingled with the hail, very grievous, 
such as had not been in all the land of E'gypt since 

25 it became a nation. And the hail smote throughout 
all the land of E'gypt all that was in the field, both 
man and beast ; and the hail smote every herb of the 

26 field, and brake every tree of the field. Only in the 
land of Go'shen, where the children of Is'ra-el were, 

27 was there no hail. And Pha'raoh sent, and called 
for Mo'ses and Aa'ron, and said unto them, I have 
sinned this time : the Lord is righteous, and I and 

28 my people are wicked. Intreat the Lord ; for there 
hath been enough of these ^mighty thunderings and 
hail ; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no 

29 longer. And Mo'ses said unto him. As soon as I 
am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my 
hands unto the Lord; the thunder shall cease, 
neither shall there be any more hail ; that thou may 

30 est know that the earth is the Lord's. But as for 
thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet 

31 fear the Lord God. And the flax and the barley 
were smitten : for the barley was in the ear, and the 

32 flax 'was boiled. But the wheat and the spelt were 

33 not smitten : for they were not grown up. And 
Mo'ses went out of the city from Pha'raoh, and spread 
abroad his hands unto the Lord : and the thunders 
and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon 

34 the earth. And when Pha'raoh saw that the rain 
and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned 
yet more, and ^hardened his heart, he and his serv- 

35 ants. And the heart of Pha'raoh 'was hardened, 
and he did not let the children of Is'ra-el go ; as the 
Lord had spoken by Mo'ses. 

iU And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Go in unto Pha'raoh: 
for I have 'hardened his heart, and the heart of his serv- 
ants, that I might shew these my signs in the midst of 
2 them : and that thou mayest t«ll in the ears of thy son,

and of thy son's son, what things I have wrought in E'gypt, 
and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may 
know how that I am the Lord. 

3 And Mo'ses and Aa'ron came in unto Pha'raoh, and said 
unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the He'brews, How 
long wilt thou refuse to ''humble thyself before me ? Let 
my people go, that they may serve me. 

4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to- 
morrow will I bring the 'locusts into thy coast : 

5 And they shall cover the fface of the earth, that one 
cannot be able to see the earth : and -^they shall eat the 
residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you 
from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for 
you out of the field : 

6 And they "shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy 
servants, and the houses of all the E-gyp'tians ; which neither 
thy fathers, nor thy fathers' fathers have seen, since the day 
that they were upon the earth unto this day. And he 
turned himself, and went out from Pha'raoh. 

7 And Pha'raoh's servants said unto him. How long shall 
this man be *a snare unto us? let the men go, that they 
may serve the Lord their God: knowest thou not yet that 
E'gypt is destroyed? 

8 And Mo'ses and Aa'ron were brought again unto Pha'- 
raoh : and he said unto them. Go, serve the Lord your 
God : but fwho are they that shall go ? 

9 And Mo'ses said, We will go with our young and with 
our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our 
flocks and with our herds will we go ; for "we must hold a 
feast unto the Lord. 

10 And he said unto them, Let the Lord be so with you, 
as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for 
evil is before you. 

11 Not so : go now ye thai are men, and serve the Lord ; 
for that ye did desire. And they were drives out from 
Pha'raoh's presence. 

12 ^And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, *Stretch out thine 
hand over^ the land of E'gypt for the locusts, that they may 
come up upon the land of E'gypt, and 'eat every herb of 
the land, even all that the hail hath left. 

13 And Mo'ses stretched forth his rod over the land of 
E'gypt, and the Lord brought an east wind upon the land 
all that day, and all that night ; and when it was morning, 
the east win^ brought the locusts. 

14 And ""the locusts went up over all the land of E'gypt, 
and rested in all the coasts of E'gypt : very grievous were 
they ; "before them there were no such locusts as they, 
neither after them shall be such. 

15 For they "covered the face of the whole earth, so that 
the land was darkened ; and they "did eat every herb of the 
land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: 
and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in 
the herbs of the field, through all the land of E'gypt. 

16 ^Then Pha'raoh fcalled for Mo'ses and Aa'ron in haste ; 
and he said, "I have sinned against the Lord your God, and 
against you. 

17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this 
once, and ""entreat the Lord your God that he may take 
away from me this death only. 

18 And he 'went out from Pha'raoh, and entreated the Lord. 

19 And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind, which 
took away the locusts, and feast them 'into the Red sea; 
there remained not one locust in all the coasts of E'gypt. 

20 But the Lord "hardened Pha'raoh's heart, so that he 
would not let the children of Is'ra-el go. 

21 ^And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, 'Stretch out thine 
hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the 
land of E'gypt, feven darkness which may be felt. 

22 And Mo'ses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; 



and of thy son's son, 'what things I have wrought 
upon E'gypt, and my signs which I have done 
among them ; that ye may know that I am the Lord. 

3 And Mo'.ses and Aa'ron went in unto Pha'raoh, and 
said unto him. Thus saith the Lord, the God of the 
He'brews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thy- 
self before me ? let my people go, that they may serve 

4 me. Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, be- 
hold, to-morrow will I bring locusts into thy border : 

5 and they shall cover the face of the earth, that one 
shall not be able to see the earth : and they shall 
eat the residue of that which is escaped, which re- 
maineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every 

6 tree which groweth for you out of the field : and thy 
houses shall be filled, and the houses of all thy serv 
ants, and the houses of all the E-gyp'tians ; as neither 
thy fathers nor thy fathers' fathers have seen, since 
the day that they were upon the earth unto this day. 

7 And he turned, and went out from Pha'raoh. And 
Pha'raoh's servants said unto him, How long shall 
this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that 
they may serve the Lord their God : knowest thou 

8 not yet that E'gypt is destroyed ? And Mo'ses and 
Aa'ron were brought again unto Pha'raoh : and he 
said unto them, Go, serve the Lord your God : but 

9 who are they that shall go ? And Mo'ses said, We 
will go with our young and with, our old, with our 
sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and 
with our herds will we go ; for we must hold a feast 

10 unto the Lord. And he said unto them. So be the 
Lord with you, as I will let you go, and your little 

Hones: look to it; for evil is ^before you. Not so: 
go now ye that are men, and serve the Lord ; for 
that is what ye desire. And they were driven out 
from Pha'raoh's presence. 

12 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Stretch out thine 
hand over the land of E'gypt for the locusts, that 
they may come up upon the land of E'gypt,, and eat 
every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath 

13 left. And Mo'ses stretched forth his rod over the 
land of E'gypt, and the Lord brought an east wind 
upon the land all that day, and all the night ; and 
when it was morning, the east wind brought the 

14 locusts. And the locusts went up over all the land 
of E'gypt, and rested in all the borders of E'gypt ; 
very grievous were they ; before them there were no 
such locusts as they, neither after them shall be 

15 sucb. For they covered the face of the whole earth, 
so that the land was darkened; and they did eat 
every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees 
which the hail had left : and there remained not any 
green thing, either tree or herb of the field, through 

16 all the land of E'gypt. Then Pha'raoh called for 
Mo'ses and Aa'ron in haste; and he said, I have 
sinned against the Lord your God, and against you. 

17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this 
once, and intreat the Lord your God, that he may 

18 take away from me this death only. And he went 

19 out from Pha'raoh, and intreated the Lord. And 
the Lord turned an exceeding strong west wind, 
which took up the locusts, and drove them into the 
Red Sea ; there remained not one locust in all the 
border of E'gypt. But the Lord hardened Pha'raoh's 
heart, and he did not let the children of L'ra-el go. 

21 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Stretch out thine 
hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over 
the land of E'gypt, *even darkness which maybe felt. 

22 And Mo'ses stretched forth his hand toward heaven ;

place for three days : ''but all the children of Is'ra-el had 
light in their dwellings. 

24 ^And Pha'raoh called unto Mo'ses, and "said, Go ye, 
serve the Lord; only let your flocks and your herds be 
stayed: let your ''little ones also go with you. 

25 And Mo'ses said, Thou must give fus also sacrifices, 
and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the Lord 
our God. 

26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not a 
hoof be left behind ; for thereof must we take to serve the 
Lord our God ; and we know not with what we must serve 
the Lord, until we come thither. 

27 HBut the Lord hardened Pha'raoh's heart, and he 
would not let them go. 

28 And Pha'raoh said unto him. Get thee from me, take 
heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou 
seest my face thou shalt die. 

29 And Mo'ses said. Thou hast spoken well, ^I will see thy 
face again no more. 

CHAPTER XI. 

Tke Israelites borrow jewels of their neighbours— Death of the firstborn. 

AND the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Yet will I bring one 
plague more, upon Pha'raoh, and upon E'gypt ; afterwards 
he will let you go hence : "when he shall let you go, he 
shall surely thrust you out hence altogether. 

2 Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man 
borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neigh- 
bour, "jewels of silver, and jewels of gold. 

3 "And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of 
the E-gyp'tians. Moreover, the man ''Mo'ses was very great 
in the land of E'gypt, in the sight of Pha'raoh's servants, 
and in the sight of the people. 

4 And Mo'ses said. Thus saith the Lord, 'About midnight 
will I go out into the midst of E'gypt : 

5 And -^all the firstborn in the land of E'gypt shall die, 
from the firstborn of Pha'raoh that sitteth upon his throne, 
3ven unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind 
the mill ; and all the firstborn of beasts. 

6 "And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land 
of E'gypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like 
it any more. 

7 ''But against any of the children of Is'rael 'shall not a 
dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may 
know how that the Lord doth put a difference between the 
E-gyp'tians and Is'ra-el. 

8 And *all these thy servants shall come down unto me, 
and bow down themselves unto me, saying. Get thee out, 
and all the people fthat follow thee: and after that I will 
go out. And he went out from Pha'raoh in fa great anger. 

9 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, 'Pha'raoh shall not 
hearken unto you ; that ""my wonders may be multiplied in 
the land of E'gypt. 

10 And Mo'ses and Aa'ron did all these wonders before 
Pha'raoh : "and the Lord hardened Pha'raoh's heart, so that 
he would not let the children of Is'ra-el go out of his land. 

CHAPTER XII. 

Beginning of the year changed — Passover instituted — Israelites driven out. 

A ND the Lord spake unto Mo'ses and Aa'ron in the land 
^ of E'gypt, saying, 

2 "This month shall he. unto you the beginning of months : 
it shall be the first month of the year to you. 

3 lySpeak ye unto all the congregation of Is'ra-el, saying, 
In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them 
every man a || lamb according to the house of their fathers, 
a lamb for a house: 



and there was a thick darkness in all the land of 

23 E'gypt three days ; they saw not one another, neither 
rose any from his place for three days: but all 
the children of Is'ra-el had light in their dwellings. 

24 And Pha'raoh called unto Mo'ses, and said. Go ye 
serve the Lord ; only let your flocks and your herds 
be stayed : let your little ones also go with you. 

25 And Mo'ses said. Thou must also give into our hand 
sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice 

26 unto the Lord our God. Our cattle also shall go 
with us ; there shall not an hoof be left behind ; for 
thereof must we take to serve the Lord our God ; and 
we know not with what we must serve the I^ord, 

27 until we come thither. But the Lord "hardened 
Pha'raoh's heart, and he would not let them go. 

28 And Pha'raoh said unto him. Get thee from me, 
take heed to thyself, see my face no more ; for in 

29 the day thou seest my face thou shalt die. And 
Mo'ses said, Thou hast spoken well; I will see thy 
face again no more. 

J-i And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Yet one plague 
more will I bring upon Pha'raoh, and upon E'gypt ; 
afterwards he will let you go hence : ^when he shall 
let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence alto- 
2gether. Speak now in the ears of the people, and 
let them ask every man of his neighbour, and every 
woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver, and jewels 

3 of gold. And the Lord gave the people favour in 
the sight of the E-gyp'tians. Moreover the man 
Mo'ses was very great in the land of E'gypt, in the 
sight of Pha'raoh's servants, and in the sight of the 
people. 

4 And Mo'ses said, Thus saith the Lord, About 

5 midnight will I go out into the midst of E'gypt : and 
all the firstborn in the land of E'gypt shall die, from 
the firstborn of Pha'raoh that sitteth upon his throne, 
even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is 

6 behind the mill ; and all the firstborn of cattle. And 
there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of 
E'gypt, such as there hath been none like it, nor shall 

7 be like it any more. But against any of the children 
of Is'ra-el shall not a dog 'move his tongue, against 
man or beast : that ye may know how that the Lord 
doth put a difference between the E-gyp'tians and 

8 Is'ra-el. And all these thy servants shall come down 
unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying. 
Get thee out, and all the people that follow thee: 
and after that I will go out. And he went out from 
Pha'raoh in hot anger. 

9 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Pha'raoh will not 
hearken unto you : that my wonders may be multi 

10 plied in the land of E'gypt. And Mo'ses and Aa'ron 
did all these wonders before Pha'raoh : and the LoRD 
'hardened Pha'raoh's heart, and he did not let tae 
children of Is'ra-el go out of his land. 

-l-« And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses and Aa'ron in the 

2 land of E'gypt, saying. This month shall be unto you 
the beginning of months : it shall be the first month 

3 of the year to you. Speak ye unto all the congrega- 
tion of Is'ra-el, saying, In the tenth day of this month 
they shall take to them every man a ^lamb, accord- 
ing to their fathers' houses, a lamb for an household:

4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him 
and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to 
the number of the souls ; every man according to his eating 
shall make your count for the lamb. 

5 Your lamb shall be ''without blemish, a male fof the 
first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep or from the 
goats : 

6 And ye shall keep it up until the "fourteenth day of the 
same month : and the whole assembly of the congregation 
of Is'ra-el shall kill it fin the evening. 

7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the 
two side posts, and on the upper door post of the houses, 
wherein they shall eat it. 

8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with 
fire, and ''unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they 
shall eat it. 

9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but 
'roast with fire ; his head with his legs, and with the pur- 
tenance thereof. 

10 -^And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning ; 
and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall 
burn with fire. 

11 ^And thus shall ye eat it ; with your loins girded, your 
shoes on your feet, and your staiF in your hand; and ye 
shall eat it in haste: "it is the Lord's passover. 

12 For I *will pass through the land of E'gypt this night, 
and will smite all the firstborn in the land of E'gypt, both 
man and beast; and 'against all the ||gods of E'gypt I will 
execute judgment : *I am the Lord. 

13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the 
houses where ye are : and when I see the blood, I will pass 
over you, and the plague shall not be upon you fto destroy 
you, when I smite the land of E'gypt. 

14 And this day shall be unto you 'for a memorial ; and 
ye shall keep it a "feast to the Lord throughout your genera- 
tions : ye shall keep it a feast "by an ordinance for ever. 

15 "Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first 
day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses : for who- 
soever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the 
seventh day, "that soul shall be cut off from Is'ra-el. 

16 And in the first day there shall be 'a holy convocation, 
and in the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation 
to you ; no manner of work shall be done in them, save 
that which every f man must eat, that only may be done 
of you. 

17 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread ; 
for ''in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of 
the land of E'gypt : therefore shall ye observe this day in 
your generations by an ordinance for ever. 

18 Xin the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month 
at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and 
twentieth day of the month at even. 

19 'Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your 
houses : for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, "even 
that soul shall be cut ofl" from the congregation of Is'ra-el, 
whether he be a stranger, or born in the land. 

20 Ye shall eat nothing leavened ; in all your habitations 
shall ye eat unleavened bread. 

21 TfThen Mo'ses called for all the elders of Is'ra-el, and 
said unto them, *Draw out and take you a || lamb according 
to your families, and kill the passover. 

22 •'And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the 
blood that is in the basin, and "strike the lintel and the two 
side posts with the blood that is in the basin ; and none of 
you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. 

23 "For the Lord will pass through to smite the E-gyp'tians ; 
and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two 
side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and ''will not 
suflfer "the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. 



4 and if the household be too little for a lamb, then 
shall he and his neighbour next unto his house take 
one according to the niimber of the souls ; ac- 
cording to every man's eating ye shall make your 

5 count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without 
blemish, a male of the first year : ye shall take it 

6 from the sheep, or from the goats : and ye shall keep 
it up until the fourteenth day of the same month : 
and the whole assembly of the congregation of 

7 Is'ra-el shall kill it 'at even. And they shall take 
of the blood, and put it on the two side posts and 
on the lintel, upon the houses wherein they shall 

8 eat it. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, 
roast with fire, and unleavened bread ; with bitter 

9 herbs they shall eat it. Eat not of it raw, nor sod- 
den at all with water, but roast with fire ; its head 

10 with its legs and with the inwards thereof And ye 
shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; 
but that M'hich remaineth of it until the morning ye 

11 shall burn with fire. And thus shall ye eat it ; with 
your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your 
staff in your hand : and ye shall eat it in haste : it 

12 is the Lord's passover. For I will go through the 
land of E'gypt in that night, and will smite all the 
firstborn in the land of E'gypt, both man and beast ; 
and against all the gods of E'gypt I will execute 

13 judgements : I am the Lord. And the blood shall 
be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are : 
and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and 
there shall no plague be upon you ^to destroy you, 

14 when I smite the land of E'gypt. And this day 
shall be unto you for a memorial, and ye shall keep 
it a feast to the Lord : throughout your genera- 
tions ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for 

15 ever. Seven days shall ye eut unleavened bread; 
even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of 
your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread 
from the first day until the seventh day, that soul 

16 shall be cut off from Is'ra-el. And in the first day 
there shall be to you an holy convocation, and in 
the seventh day an holy convocation ; no manner of 
work shall be done in them, save that which every 

17 man must eat, that only may be done of you. And 
ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread ; for 
in this selfsame day have I brought your hosts out 
of the land of E'gypt : therefore shall ye observe 
this day throughout your generations by an ordi- 

18 nance for ever. In the first month, on the fourteenth 
day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened 
bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month 

19 at even. Seven days shall there be no leaven found 
in your houses : for whosoever eateth that which is 
leavened, that soul shall be cut off from the con- 
gregation of Is'ra-el, whether he be a sojourner, or 

20 one that is born in the land. Ye shall eat nothing 
leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat un- 
leavened bread, 

21 Then Mo'ses called for all the elders of Is'ra-el, and 
said unto them, 'Draw out, and take you ^lambs ac- 

22 cording to your families, and kill the passover. And 
ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the 
blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the 
two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; 
and none of you shall go out of the door of his house 

23 until the morning. For the Lord will pass through 
to smite the E-gyp'tians; and when he seeth the 
blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the 
Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the 
destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. I

24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee 
and to thy sons for ever. 

25 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land 
which the Lord will give you/accordingas he hath promised, 
that ye shall keep this service. 

26 'And it shall come to pass, when your children shall 
say unto you. What mean ye by this service ? 

27 Tk.. ye shall say, ■'^It is the sacrifice of the Lord's 
passover, who passed over the houses of the children of 
Is'ra-el in E'gypt, when he smote the E-gyp'tians, and de- 
livered our houses. And the people "bowed the head and 
worshipped. 

28 And the children of Is'ra-el went away, and Mid as the 
Lord had commanded Mo'ses and Aa'ron, so did they. 

29 ^'And it came to pass, that at midnight *the Lord 
smote all the firstborn in the land of E'gypt, 'from the first- 
born of Pha'raoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn 
of the captive that was in tue fdungeon ; and all the first- 
born of cattle. 

30 And Pha'raoh rose up in the night, he, and all his 
servants, and all the E-gyp'tians; and there was a '"great 
cry in E'gypt : for there was not a house where there was not 
one dead. 

31 l[And "he called for Mo'ses and Aa'ron by night, and 
said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, 
"both ye and the children of Is'ra-el ; and go, serve the Lord, 
as ye have said. 

32 "Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, 
and be gone ; and 'bless me also. 

33 'And the E-gyp'tians were urgent upon the people, that 
they might send them out of the land in haste ; for they 
said, 'We be all dead men. 

34 And the people took their dough before it was leavened, 
their || kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes 
upon their shoulders. 

35 And the children of Is'ra-el did according to the word 
of Mo'ses ; and they borrowed of the E-gyp'tians 'jewels of 
silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment : 

36 "And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of 
the E-gyp'tians, so that they lent unto them such things as 
they required : and ^they spoiled the E-gyp'tians. 

37 ^And "the children of Is'ra-el journeyed frora'Ra-me'ses 
to Suc'coth, about "six hundred thousand on foot that were 
men, besides children. 

38 And fa mixed multitude went up also with them; and 
flocks, and herds, even very much cattle. 

39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which 
they brought forth out of E'gypt, for it was not leavened; 
because '"they were thrust out of E'gypt, and could not tarry, 
neither had they prepared for themselves any victuals. 

40 ^Now the sojourning of the children of Is'ra-el who 
dwelt in E'gypt was "four hundred and thirty years. 

41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred 
and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, 
that all ''the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of 
E'gypt. 

42 It is t'a night to be much observed unto the Lord 
for bringing them out from the land of E'gypt : this is that 
night of the Lord to be observed of all the children of 
Is'ra-el in their generations. 

43 •^ And the Lord said unto Mo'ses and Aa'ron, This is ■'the 
ordinance of the passover : There shall no stranger eat thereof: 

44 But every man's servant that is bought for money, when 
thou hast "circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof. 

45 ''A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat thereof. 

46 In one house shall it be eaten ; thou shalt not carry 
forth aught of the flesh abroad out of the house; 'neither 
shall ye break a bone thereof. 

47 'All the congregation of Is'ra-el shall fkeep it. 



24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance 

25 to thee and to thy sons for ever. And it shall 
come to pass, when ye be come to the land which 
the Lord will give you, according as he hath prom- 

26 ised, that ye shall keep this service. And it shall 
come to pass, when your children shall say unto 

27 you. What mean ye by this service ? that ye shall 
say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord's passover, 'who 
passed over the houses of the children of Is'ra-el 
in E'gypt, when he smote the E-gyp'tians, and de- 
livered our houses. And the people bowed the 

28 head and worshipped. And the children of Is'ra-el 
went and did so ; as the Lord had commanded 
Mo'ses and Aa'ron, so did they. 

29 And it came to pass at midnight, that the Lord 
smote all the firstborn in the land of E'gypt, from 
the firstborn of Pha'raoh that sat on his throne unto 
the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon ; 

30 and all the firstborn of cattle. And Pha'raoh rose 
up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the 
E-gyp'tians ; and there was a great cry in E'gypt ; for 
there was not a house where there was not one dead. 

31 And he called for Mo'ses and Aa'ron by night, and 
said. Rise up, get you forth from among my people, 
both ye and the children of Is'ra-el ; and go, serve 

32 the Lord, as ye have said. Take both your flocks 
and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone ; and 

33 bless me also. And the E-gyp'tians were urgent 
upon the people, to send them out of the land in 

34 haste; for they said, We be all dead men. And 
the people took their dough before it was leavened, 
their kneadingtroughs being bound up in their 

35 clothes upon their shoulders. And the children of 
Is'ra-el did according to the word of Mo'ses; and 
they asked of the E-gyp'tians jewels of silver, and 

36jewels of gold, and raiment : and the Lord gave 
the people favour in the sight of the E-gyp'tians, so 
that they let them have what they asked. And 
they spoiled the E-gyp'tians. 

37 And the children of Is'ra-el journeyed from Ra- 
me'ses to Suc'coth, about six hundred thousand on 

38 foot that were men, beside children. And a mixed 
multitude went up also with them ; and flocks, and 

39 herds, even very much cattle. And they baked un- 
leavened cakes of the dough which they brought 
forth out of E'gypt, for it was not leavened ; because 
they were thrust out of E'gypt, and could not tarry, 
neither had they prepared for themselves any victual. 

40 Now the sojourning of the children of Is'ra-el, which 
they sojourned in E'gypt, was four hundred and 

41 thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of 
four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame 
day it came to pass, that all the hosts of, the Lord 

42 went out from the land of E'gypt. It is ^a night to 
be much observed unto the Lord for bringing them 
out from the land of E'gypt : 'this is that night of 
the Lord, to be much observed of all the children 
of Is'ra-el throughout their generations. 

43 And the Lord said unto Mo'ses and Aa'ron, This is 
the ordinance of the passover : there shall no alien eat 

44 thereof: but every man's servant that is bought for 
money, when thou hast circumcised him, then shall 

45 he eat thereof. A sojourner and an hired servant 

46 shall not eat thereof In one house shall it be eaten ; 
thou shalt not carry forth aught of the flesh abroad 
out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone 

47 thereof. AH the congregation of Is'ra-el shall *keep it.

48 And 'when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will 
keep the passover to the Lord, let all his males be circum- 
cised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall 
be as one that is born in the land : for no uncircumcised 
person shall eat thereof. 

49 "One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto 
the stranger that sojourneth among you. 

50 Thus did all the children of Is'ra-el ; as the Loed com- 
manded Mo'ses and Aa'ron, so did they. 

51 "And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the Lord 
did bring the children of Is'ra-el out of the land of E'gypt 
"by their armies. 

CHAPTER XIII. 

Thg Israelites go out of Egypt — Tke pillar of a cloud, and the piUar of fire. 

AND the Lord spake unto Mo'ses, saying, . 
2 "Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsover openeth 
the womb among the children of Is'ra-el, both of man and 
of beast : it is mine. 

3 ^And Mo'ses said unto the people, ""Remember this day, 
in which ye came out from E'gypt, out of the house of 
fbondage; for "by strength of hand the Lord brought 
you out from this place: ''there shall no leavened bread 
be eaten. 

4 'This day came ye out in the month A'bib. 

5 ^And it shall be when the Lord shall ^ bring thee into 
the land of the Ca'naan-ites, and the Hit'tites, and the Am'o- 
rites, and the Hi'vites, and the Jeb'u-sites, which he "sware 
unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and 
honey, "that thou shalt keep this service in this month. 

6 'Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the 
seventh day shall be a feast to the Lord. 

7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days ; and there 
shall *no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall 
there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters. 

8 ^And thou shalt 'shew thy son in that day, saying. 
This is done because of that which the Lord did unto me 
when I came forth out of E'gypt. 

9 And it shall be for ""a sign unto thee upon thine hand, 
and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the Lord's 
law may be in thy mouth : for with a strong hand hath the 
Lord brought thee out of E'gypt. 

10 "Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season 
from year to year. 

11 ^And it shall be when the Lord shall bring thee into 
the land of the Ca'naan-ites, as he sware unto thee and to 
thy fathers, and shall give it thee, 

12 "That thou shalt fset apart unto the Lord all that 
openeth the matrix, and every firstling that cometh of a 
beast which thou hast ; the male shaU be the Lord's. 

13 And "every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a 
lamb ; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break 

his neck : and all the firstborn of man among thy children 
'shalt thou redeem. 

14 ^'And it shall be when thy son asketh thee fin time to 
come, saying, What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, 
'By strength of hand the Lord brought us out from E'gypt, 
from the house of bondage : 

15 And it came to pass, when Pha'raoh would hardly let 
us go, that 'the Lord slew all the firstborn in the land of 
E'gypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of 
beast: therefore I sacrifice to the Lord all that openeth the 
matrix, being males ; but all the firstborn of my children I 
redeem. 

16 And it shall be for "a token upon thine hand, and for 
frontlets between thine eyes : for by strength of hand the 
Lord brought us forth out of E'gypt. 

17 ^And it came to pass, when Pha'raoh had let the peo- 
ple go, that God led them not through the way of the 
•knd of the Phirlis'tines, although that wcw. near ; for God 



48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and 
will keep the passover to the Lord, let all his males 
be circumcised, and then let him come near and 
keep it ; and he shall be as one that is born in the 
land : but no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof. 

49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto 

50 the stranger that sojourneth among you. Thus did 
all the children of Is'ra-el ; as the Lord commanded 

51 Mo'ses and Aa'ron, so did they. And it came to 
pass the selfsame day, that the Lord did bring the 
children of Is'rael out of the land of E'gypt by their 
hosts. 

J-^ I And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses, saying, Sanctify 
unto- me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the 
womb among the children of Is'ra-el, both of man 
and of beast : it is mine. 

3 And Mo'ses said unto the people. Remember this 
day, in which ye came out from E'gypt, out of the 
house of 'bondage; for by strength of hand the 
Lord brought you out from this place: there shall 

4 no leavened bread be eaten. This day ye go forth 

5 in the month A'bib. And it shall be when the Lord 
shall bring thee into the land of the Ca'naan-ite, and 
the Hit'tite, and the Am'o-rite, and the Hi'vite, and 
the Jeb'u-site, which he sware unto thy fathers to 
give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, that 

6 thou shalt keep this service in this month. Seven 
days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the 

7 seventh day shall be a feast to the Lord. Un- 
leavened bread shall be eaten throughout the seven 
days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen 
with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with 

8 thee, in all thy borders. And thou shalt tell thy 
son in that day, saying. It is because of that which 
the Lord did for me when I came forth out of 

9 E'gypt. And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon 
thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, 
that the law of the Lord may be in thy mouth 
for with a strong hand hath the Lord brought thee 

10 out of E'gypt. Thou shalt therefore keep this ordi 
nance in its season from year to year. 

11 And it shall be when the Lord shall bring thee 
into the land of the Ca'naan-ite, as he sware unto 

12 thee and to thy fathers, and shall give it thee, that 
thou shalt ^set apart unto the Lord all that openeth 
the womb, and every firstling which thou hast that 
cometh of a beast ; the males shall be the Lord's. 

13 And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with 
a ^lamb ; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou 
shalt break its neck : and all the firstborn of man 

14 among thy sons shalt thou redeem. And it shall be 
when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying. 
What is this? that thou shalt say unto him. By 
strength of hand the Lord brought us out from 

15 E'gypt, from the house of 'bondage: and it came to 
pass, when Pha'raoh *would hardly let us go, that 
the Lord slew all the firstborn in the land of E'gypt, 
both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast : 
therefore I sacrifice to the Lord all that openeth the 
womb, being males ; but all the firstborn of my sons 

161 redeem. And it shall be for a sign upon thine 
hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by 
strength of hand the Lord brought us forth out of 
E'gypt. 

17 And it came topass, when Pha'raoh had let the peo- 
ple go, that God led theni not by the way of the land 
of the Phi- lis' tines, although that was near; for God

said, Lest -perad venture the people "repent when they see 
war, and "they return to E'gypt : 

18 But God 'led the people about, through the way of the 
wilderness of the Red sea : and the children of Is'ra-el went 
up I] harnessed out of the land of E'gypt. 

19 And Mo'ses took the bones of Jo'seph with him : for he 
had straitly sworn the children of Is'ra-el, saying, "God will 
■surely visit you ; and ye shall carry up my bones away 
hence with you. 

20 ^And 'they took their journey from Suc'coth, and 
encamped in E'tham, in the edge of the wilderness. 

21 And ''the Loed went before them by day in a pillar of 
a cloud, to lead them the way ; and by night in a pillar of 
fire, to give them light ; to go by day and night. 

22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor 
the pillar of fire by night, from before the people. 

CHAPTER XIV. 

Pharaoh pursueth the Israelites— The Egyptians drowned in the Red sea. 

AND the Lord spake unto Mo'ses, saying. 
Speak unto the children of Is'ra-el, "that they turn and 
encamp before ''Pi'ha-hi'roth, between "Mig'dol and the sea, 
over against Ba'al-ze'phon : before it shall ye encamp by 
the sea. 

3 For Pha'raoh will say of the children of Is'rael, ''They are 
entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in. 

4 And ''I will harden Pha'raoh's heart, that he shall follow 
after them; and I •'^will be honoured upon Pha'raoh, and 
upon all his host; "that the E-gyp'tians may know that I am 
the Lord. And they did so. 

5 ^ And it was told the king of E'gypt that the people fled : 
and *the heart of Pha'ra./h and of his servants was turned 
against the people, and they said, Why have we done this, 
that we have let Is'ra-el go from serving us ? 

6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people 
with him : 

7 And he took 'six hundred chosen chariots, and all the 
chariots of E'gypt, and captains over every one of them. 

8 And the Lord ^hardened the heart of Pha'raoh king of 
E'gypt, and he pursued after the children of Is'ra-el : and 
'the children of Is'ra-el went out with a high hand. 

9 But the "E-gyp'tians pursued after them, all the horses 
and chariots of Pha'raoh, and his horsemen, and his army, 
and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pi'ha- 
hi'roth, before Ba'al-ze'phon. 

10 ^And when Pha'raoh drew nigh, the children of Is'ra-el 
lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the E-gyp'tians marched 
after them ; and they were sore afraid : and the children of 
Is'ra-el "cried out unto the Lord. 

11 "And they said unto Mo'ses, Because there were no 
graves in E'gypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wil- 
derness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry 
us forth out of E'gypt ? 

12 "Is not this the word that we did tell thee in E'gypt, 
saying. Let us alone, that we may serve the E-gyp'tians? 
For it had been better for us to serve the E-gyp'tians, than 
that we should die in the wilderness. 

13 ^And Mo'ses said unto the people, 'Fear ye not, stand 
still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew 
to you to-day: ||for the E-gyp'tians whom ye have seen 
to-day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. 

14 'The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall 'hold your 
peace. 

15 ^And the Lord said unto Mo'ses, Wherefore criest 
thou unto me ? speak unto the children of Is'ra-el that they 
go forward : 

16 But 'lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand 
over the sea, and divide it : and the children of Is'ra-el 
shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. 



said. Lest peradventure the people repent when 

18 they see war, and they return to E'gypt : but God 
led the people about, by the way of the wilderness 
by the Red Sea : and the children of Is'ra-el went up 

19 armed out of the land of E'gypt. And Mo'ses took 
the bones of Jo'seph with him : for he had straitly 
sworn the children of Is'ra-el, saying, God will surely 
visit you ; and ye shall carry up my bones away 

20 hence with you. And they took their journey from 
Suc'coth, and encamped in E'tham, in the edge of the 

21 wilderness. And the Lord went before them by 
day in a pillar of cloud, to lead them the way ; and 
by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light ; that 

22 they might go by day and by night : 'the pillar of 
cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night, de- 
parted not from before the people. 

4-'*^ ^And the Lord spake unto Mo'ses, saying. Speak 
unto the children of Is-rael, that they turn back and 
encamp before Pi'ha-hi'roth, between Mig'dol and the 
sea, before Ba'al-ze'phon : over aganist it shall ye 

3 encamp by the sea. And Pha'raoh will say of the 
children of Is'ra-el, They are entangled in the land, 

4 the wilderness hath shut them in. And I will 
^harden Pha'raoh's heart, and he shall follow after 
tbem ; and I will get me honour upon Pha'raoh, and 
upon all his host; and the E-gyp'tians shall know 

5 that I am the Lord. And they did so. And it 
was told the king of E'gypt that the people were 
fled: and the heart of Pha'raoh and of his servants 
was changed towards the people, and they said. 
What is this we have done, that we have let Is'ra-el 

6 go from serving us? And he made ready his 

7*chariot, and took his people with him : and he took 

six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of 

8 E'gypt, and captains over all of them. And the 
Lord hardened the heart of Pha'raoh king of E'gypt, 
and he pursued after the children of Is'ra-el : for the 

9 children of Is'ra-el went out with an high hand. And 
the E-gyp'tians pursued after them, all the horses and 
chariots of Pha'raoh, and his horsemen, and his 
army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, 

10 besidePi'ha-hi'roth, before Ba'al-ze'phon. And when 
Pha'raoh drew nigh, the children of Is'ra-el lifted up 
their eyes, and, behold, the E-gyp'tians marched after 
them ; and they were sore afraid : and the children 

11 of Is'ra-el cried out unto the Lord. And they said 
unto Mo'ses, Because there were no graves in E'gypt, 
hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? 
wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to bring us 

12 forth out of E'gypt? Is not this the word that we 
spake unto thee in E'gypt, saying. Let us alone, that 
we may serve the E-gyp'tians ? For it were better 
for us to serve the E-gyp'tians, than that we should 

13 die in the wilderness. And Mo'ses said unto the 
people. Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation 
of the Lord, which he will work for you to-day: 
'for the E-gyp'tians whom ye have seen to-day, ye 

14 shall see them again no more for ever. The Lord 
shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. 

15 And the Lord said un
