Genesis 7:1-24
1. Then the LORD said to Noah, "Enter the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you [alone] are righteous before Me in this generation.
2. You are to take with you seven pairs, a male and its female, of all the clean animals, and two of the animals that are not clean, a male and its female,
3. and seven pairs, male and female, of the birds of the sky-- in order to keep offspring alive on the face of the whole earth.
4. Seven days from now I will make it rain on the earth 40 days and 40 nights, and I will wipe off the face of the earth every living thing I have made."
5. And Noah did everything that the LORD commanded him.
6. Noah was 600 years old when the deluge came [and] water covered the earth.
7. So Noah, his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives entered the ark because of the waters of the deluge.
8. From the clean animals, unclean animals, birds, and every creature that crawls on the ground,
9. two of each, male and female, entered the ark with Noah, just as God had commanded him.
10. Seven days later the waters of the deluge came on the earth.
11. In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the sources of the watery depths burst open, the floodgates of the sky were opened,
12. and the rain fell on the earth 40 days and 40 nights.
13. On that same day Noah along with his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, Noah's wife, and his three sons' wives entered the ark with him.
14. They [entered it] with all the wildlife according to their kinds, all livestock according to their kinds, every creature that crawls on the earth according to its kind, all birds, every fowl, and everything with wings according to their kinds.
15. Two of all flesh that has the breath of life in it entered the ark with Noah.
16. Those that entered, male and female of all flesh, entered just as God had commanded him. Then the LORD shut him in.
17. The deluge continued 40 days on the earth; the waters increased and lifted up the ark so that it rose above the earth.
18. The waters surged and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water.
19. Then the waters surged even higher on the earth, and all the high mountains under the whole sky were covered.
20. The mountains were covered as the waters surged [above them] more than 20 feet.
21. All flesh perished-- creatures that crawl on the earth, birds, livestock, wildlife, and all creatures that swarm on the earth, as well as all mankind.
22. Everything with the breath of the spirit of life in its nostrils-- everything on dry land died.
23. He wiped out every living thing that was on the surface of the ground, from mankind to livestock, to creatures that crawl, to the birds of the sky, and they were wiped off the earth. Only Noah was left, and those that were with him in the ark.
24. And the waters surged on the earth 150 days.

Genesis 8:1-22
1. God remembered Noah, as well as all the wildlife and all the livestock that were with him in the ark. God caused a wind to pass over the earth, and the water began to subside.
2. The sources of the watery depths and the floodgates of the sky were closed, and the rain from the sky stopped.
3. The water steadily receded from the earth, and by the end of 150 days the waters had decreased significantly.
4. The ark came to rest in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat.
5. The waters continued to recede until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were visible.
6. After 40 days Noah opened the window of the ark that he had made,
7. and he sent out a raven. It went back and forth until the waters had dried up from the earth.
8. Then he sent out a dove to see whether the water on the earth's surface had gone down,
9. but the dove found no resting place for her foot. She returned to him in the ark because water covered the surface of the whole earth. He reached out and brought her into the ark to himself.
10. So Noah waited seven more days and sent out the dove from the ark again.
11. When the dove came to him at evening, there was a plucked olive leaf in her beak. So Noah knew that the water on the earth's surface had gone down.
12. After he had waited another seven days, he sent out the dove, but she did not return to him again.
13. In the six hundred and first year, in the first month, on the first day of the month, the water [that had covered] the earth was dried up. Then Noah removed the ark's cover and saw that the surface of the ground was drying.
14. By the twenty-seventh day of the second month, the earth was dry.
15. Then God spoke to Noah,
16. "Come out of the ark, you, your wife, your sons, and your sons' wives with you.
17. Bring out every living thing of all flesh that is with you-- birds, livestock, creatures that crawl on the ground-- and they will spread over the earth and be fruitful and multiply on the earth."
18. So Noah, along with his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives, came out.
19. All wildlife, all livestock, every bird, and every creature that crawls on the earth came out of the ark by their groups.
20. Then Noah built an altar to the LORD. He took some of every kind of clean animal and every kind of clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
21. When the LORD smelled the pleasing aroma, He said to Himself, "I will never again curse the ground because of man, even though man's inclination is evil from his youth. And I will never again strike down every living thing as I have done.
22. As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease."

Psalms 3:1-4
1. [A psalm of David when he fled from his son Absalom.] LORD, how my foes increase! There are many who attack me.
2. Many say about me, "There is no help for him in God." Selah
3. But You, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the One who lifts up my head.
4. I cry aloud to the LORD, and He answers me from His holy mountain. Selah

Proverbs 1:20-22
20. Wisdom calls out in the street; she raises her voice in the public squares.
21. She cries out above the commotion; she speaks at the entrance of the city gates:
22. "How long, foolish ones, will you love ignorance? [How long] will [you] mockers enjoy mocking and [you] fools hate knowledge?

Matthew 4:1-25
1. Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil.
2. After He had fasted 40 days and 40 nights, He was hungry.
3. Then the tempter approached Him and said, "If You are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread."
4. But He answered, "It is written: Man must not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God."
5. Then the Devil took Him to the holy city, had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple,
6. and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: He will give His angels orders concerning you and, they will support you with their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone."
7. Jesus told him, "It is also written: Do not test the Lord your God."
8. Again, the Devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.
9. And he said to Him, "I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me."
10. Then Jesus told him, "Go away, Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him."
11. Then the Devil left Him, and immediately angels came and began to serve Him.
12. When He heard that John had been arrested, He withdrew into Galilee.
13. He left Nazareth behind and went to live in Capernaum by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali.
14. This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:
15. Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, along the sea road, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles!
16. The people who live in darkness have seen a great light, and for those living in the shadowland of death, light has dawned.
17. From then on Jesus began to preach, "Repent, because the kingdom of heaven has come near!"
18. As He was walking along the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon, who was called Peter, and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the sea, since they were fishermen.
19. "Follow Me," He told them, "and I will make you fish for people!"
20. Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
21. Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They were in a boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and He called them.
22. Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed Him.
23. Jesus was going all over Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.
24. Then the news about Him spread throughout Syria. So they brought to Him all those who were afflicted, those suffering from various diseases and intense pains, the demon-possessed, the epileptics, and the paralytics. And He healed them.
25. Large crowds followed Him from Galilee, Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan.
