Genesis 3:1-24
1. And the serpent was more crafty than any animal of the field which Jehovah Elohim had made. And it said to the woman, Is it even so, that God has said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2. And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden;
3. but of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, God has said, Ye shall not eat of it, and ye shall not touch it, lest ye die.
4. And the serpent said to the woman, Ye will not certainly die;
5. but God knows that in the day ye eat of it, your eyes will be opened, and ye will be as God, knowing good and evil.
6. And the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a pleasure for the eyes, and the tree was to be desired to give intelligence; and she took of its fruit, and ate, and gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.
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 Jehovah Elohim, walking in the garden in the cool of the day. And Man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Jehovah Elohim, in the midst of the trees of the garden.
9. And Jehovah Elohim called to Man, and said to him, Where art thou?
10. And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I feared, because I am naked; and I hid myself.
11. And he said, Who told thee that thou art naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree of which I commanded thee not to eat?
12. And Man said, The woman, whom thou hast given [to be] with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.
13. And Jehovah Elohim said to the woman, What is this thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent deceived me, and I ate.
14. And Jehovah Elohim said to the serpent, Because thou hast done this, be thou cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field. On thy belly shalt thou go, and eat dust all the days of thy life.
15. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; he shall crush thy head, and thou shalt crush his heel.
16. To the woman he said, I will greatly increase thy travail and thy pregnancy; with pain thou shalt bear children; and to thy husband shall be thy desire, and he shall rule over thee.
17. And to Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened to the voice of thy wife, and eaten of the tree of which I commanded thee saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed be the ground on thy account; with toil shalt thou eat [of] it all the days of thy life;
18. and thorns and thistles shall it yield thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field.
19. In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, until thou return to the ground: for out of it wast thou taken. For dust thou art; and unto dust shalt thou return.
20. And Man called his wife's name Eve; because she is the mother of all living.
21. And Jehovah Elohim made Adam and his wife coats of skin, and clothed them.
22. And Jehovah Elohim said, Behold, Man is become as one of us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he stretch out his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever !
23. Therefore Jehovah Elohim sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.
24. And he drove out Man; and he set the Cherubim, and the flame of the flashing sword, toward the east of the garden of Eden, to guard the way to the tree of life.

Genesis 4:1-26
1. And Man knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bore Cain, and said, I have acquired a man with Jehovah.
2. And she further bore his brother Abel. And Abel was a shepherd, but Cain was a husbandman.
3. And in process of time it came to pass that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering to Jehovah.
4. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock, and of their fat. And Jehovah looked upon Abel, and on his offering;
5. and upon Cain, and on his offering, he did not look. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.
6. And Jehovah said to Cain, Why art thou angry, and why is thy countenance fallen?
7. If thou doest well, will not [thy countenance] look up [with confidence]? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door; and unto thee [shall be] his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
8. And Cain spoke to Abel his brother, and it came to pass when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
9. And Jehovah said to Cain, Where is Abel 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 blood is crying to me from the ground.
11. And now be thou cursed from the ground, which hath opened its mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand.
12. When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield thee its strength; a wanderer and fugitive shalt thou be on the earth.
13. And Cain said to Jehovah, My punishment is too great to be borne.
14. Behold, thou hast driven me this day from the face of the ground, and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a wanderer and fugitive on the earth; and it will come to pass, [that] every one who finds me will slay me.
15. And Jehovah said to him, Therefore, whoever slayeth Cain, it shall be revenged sevenfold. And Jehovah set a mark on Cain, lest any finding him should smite him.
16. And Cain went out from the presence of Jehovah, and dwelt in the land of Nod, toward the east of Eden.
17. And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city; and he called the name of the city after the name of his son Enoch.
18. And to Enoch was born Irad; and Irad begot Mehujael; and Mehujael begot Methushael; and Methushael begot Lemech.
19. And Lemech took two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the second, Zillah.
20. And Adah bore Jabal: he was the father of those who dwell in tents, and [breed] cattle.
21. And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of those who handle the harp and pipe.
22. And Zillah, she also bore Tubal-Cain, the forger of every kind of tool of brass and iron. And the sister of Tubal-Cain was Naamah.
23. And Lemech said to his wives: Adah and Zillah, hear my voice, Ye wives of Lemech, listen to my speech. For I have slain a man for my wound, and a youth for my bruise.
24. If Cain shall be avenged seven-fold; Lemech seventy and seven fold.
25. And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son, and called his name Seth: For God has appointed me another seed instead of Abel, because Cain has slain him.
26. And to Seth, to him also was born a son; and he called his name Enosh. Then people began to call on the name of Jehovah.

Psalms 2:1-6
1. Why are the nations in tumultuous agitation, and [why] do the peoples meditate a vain thing?
2. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the princes plot together, against Jehovah and against his anointed:
3. Let us break their bonds asunder, and cast away their cords from us!
4. He that dwelleth in the heavens shall laugh, the Lord shall have them in derision.
5. Then will he speak to them in his anger, and in his fierce displeasure will he terrify them:
6. And *I* have anointed my king upon Zion, the hill of my holiness.

Proverbs 1:8-9
8. Hear, my son, the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the teaching of thy mother;
9. for they shall be a garland of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.

Matthew 2:1-23
1. Now Jesus having been born in Bethlehem of Judaea, in the days of Herod the king, behold magi from the east arrived at Jerusalem, saying,
2. Where is the king of the Jews that has been born? for we have seen his star in the east, and have come to do him homage.
3. But Herod the king having heard [of it], was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him;
4. and, assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ should be born.
5. And they said to him, In Bethlehem of Judaea; for thus it is written through the prophet:
6. And *thou* Bethlehem, land of Juda, art in no wise the least among the governors of Juda; for out of thee shall go forth a leader who shall shepherd my people Israel.
7. Then Herod, having secretly called the magi, inquired of them accurately the time of the star that was appearing;
8. and having sent them to Bethlehem, said, Go, search out accurately concerning the child, and when ye shall have found [him] bring me back word, so that *I* also may come and do him homage.
9. And they having heard the king went their way; and lo, the star, which they had seen in the east, went before them until it came and stood over the place where the little child was.
10. And when they saw the star they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11. And having come into the house they saw the little child with Mary his mother, and falling down did him homage. And having opened their treasures, they offered to him gifts, gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
12. And being divinely instructed in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
13. Now, they having departed, behold, an angel of [the] Lord appears in a dream to Joseph, saying, Arise, take to [thee] the little child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be there until I shall tell thee; for Herod will seek the little child to destroy it.
14. And, having arisen, he took to [him] the little child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt.
15. And he was there until the death of Herod, that that might be fulfilled which was spoken by [the] Lord through the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
16. Then Herod, seeing that he had been mocked by the magi, was greatly enraged; and sent and slew all the boys which [were] in Bethlehem, and in all its borders, from two years and under, according to the time which he had accurately inquired from the magi.
17. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken through Jeremias the prophet, saying,
18. A voice has been heard in Rama, weeping, and great lamentation: Rachel weeping [for] her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
19. But Herod having died, behold, an angel of [the] Lord appears in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, saying,
20. Arise, take to [thee] the little child and its mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they who sought the life of the little child are dead.
21. And he arose and took to [him] the little child and its mother, and came into the land of Israel;
22. but having heard that 'Archelaus reigns over Judaea, instead of Herod his father,' he was afraid to go there; and having been divinely instructed in a dream, he went away into the parts of Galilee,
23. and came and dwelt in a town called Nazareth; so that that should be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophets, He shall be called a Nazaraean.
