Genesis 6:1-22
1. When mankind began to multiply on the earth and daughters were born to them,
2. the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were beautiful, and they took any they chose as wives for themselves.
3. And the LORD said, "My Spirit will not remain with mankind forever, because they are corrupt. Their days will be 120 years."
4. The Nephilim were on the earth both in those days and afterwards, when the sons of God came to the daughters of man, who bore children to them. They were the powerful men of old, the famous men.
5. When the LORD saw that man's wickedness was widespread on the earth and that every scheme his mind thought of was nothing but evil all the time,
6. the LORD regretted that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
7. Then the LORD said, "I will wipe off the face of the earth: man, whom I created, together with the animals, creatures that crawl, and birds of the sky-- for I regret that I made them."
8. Noah, however, found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
9. These are the family records of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among his contemporaries; Noah walked with God.
10. And Noah fathered three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11. Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight, and the earth was filled with violence.
12. God saw how corrupt the earth was, for all flesh had corrupted its way on the earth.
13. Then God said to Noah, "I have decided to put an end to all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence because of them; therefore I am going to destroy them along with the earth.
14. "Make yourself an ark of gofer wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it with pitch inside and outside.
15. This is how you are to make it: The ark will be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high.
16. You are to make a roof, finishing [the sides of the ark] to within 18 inches [of the roof.] You are to put a door in the side of the ark. Make it with lower, middle, and upper [decks].
17. "Understand that I am bringing a deluge-- floodwaters on the earth to destroy all flesh under heaven with the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will die.
18. But I will establish My covenant with you, and you will enter the ark with your sons, your wife, and your sons' wives.
19. You are also to bring into the ark two of every living thing of all flesh, male and female, to keep them alive with you.
20. Two of everything-- from the birds according to their kinds, from the livestock according to their kinds, and from every animal that crawls on the ground according to its kind-- will come to you so that you can keep them alive.
21. Take with you every kind of food that is eaten; gather it as food for you and for them."
22. And Noah did this. He did everything that God had commanded him.

Psalms 2:7-12
7. I will declare the LORD's decree: He said to Me, "You are My Son; today I have become Your Father.
8. Ask of Me, and I will make the nations Your inheritance and the ends of the earth Your possession.
9. You will break them with a rod of iron; You will shatter them like pottery."
10. So now, kings, be wise; receive instruction, you judges of the earth.
11. Serve the LORD with reverential awe, and rejoice with trembling.
12. Pay homage to the Son, or He will be angry, and you will perish in your rebellion, for His anger may ignite at any moment. All those who take refuge in Him are happy.

Proverbs 1:10-19
10. My son, if sinners entice you, don't be persuaded.
11. If they say-- "Come with us! Let's set an ambush and kill someone. Let's attack some innocent person just for fun!
12. Let's swallow them alive, like Sheol, still healthy as they go down to the Pit.
13. We'll find all kinds of valuable property and fill our houses with plunder.
14. Throw in your lot with us, and we'll all share our money"--
15. my son, don't travel that road with them or set foot on their path,
16. because their feet run toward trouble and they hurry to commit murder.
17. It is foolish to spread a net where any bird can see it,
18. but they set an ambush to kill themselves; they attack their own lives.
19. Such are the paths of all who pursue gain dishonestly; it takes the lives of those who profit from it.

Matthew 3:1-17
1. In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the Wilderness of Judea
2. and saying, "Repent, because the kingdom of heaven has come near!"
3. For he is the one spoken of through the prophet Isaiah, who said: A voice of one crying out in the wilderness: "Prepare the way for the Lord; make His paths straight!"
4. John himself had a camel-hair garment with a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey.
5. Then [people from] Jerusalem, all Judea, and all the vicinity of the Jordan were flocking to him,
6. and they were baptized by him in the Jordan River as they confessed their sins.
7. When he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to the place of his baptism, he said to them, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?
8. Therefore produce fruit consistent with repentance.
9. And don't presume to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I tell you that God is able to raise up children for Abraham from these stones!
10. Even now the ax is ready to strike the root of the trees! Therefore every tree that doesn't produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
11. "I baptize you with water for repentance, but the One who is coming after me is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to take off His sandals. He Himself will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
12. His winnowing shovel is in His hand, and He will clear His threshing floor and gather His wheat into the barn. But the chaff He will burn up with fire that never goes out."
13. Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him.
14. But John tried to stop Him, saying, "I need to be baptized by You, and yet You come to me?"
15. Jesus answered him, "Allow it for now, because this is the way for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed Him [to be baptized].
16. After Jesus was baptized, He went up immediately from the water. The heavens suddenly opened for Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on Him.
17. And there came a voice from heaven: This is My beloved Son. I take delight in Him!
