Genesis 9:1-28
1. God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them: "Be fertile and multiply and fill the earth.
2. Dread fear of you shall come upon all the animals of the earth and all the birds of the air, upon all the creatures that move about on the ground and all the fishes of the sea; into your power they are delivered.
3. Every creature that is alive shall be yours to eat; I give them all to you as I did the green plants.
4. Only flesh with its lifeblood still in it you shall not eat.
5. For your own lifeblood, too, I will demand an accounting: from every animal I will demand it, and from man in regard to his fellow man I will demand an accounting for human life.
6. If anyone sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; For in the image of God has man been made.
7. Be fertile, then, and multiply; abound on earth and subdue it."
8. God said to Noah and to his sons with him:
9. "See, I am now establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you
10. and with every living creature that was with you: all the birds, and the various tame and wild animals that were with you and came out of the ark.
11. I will establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all bodily creatures be destroyed by the waters of a flood; there shall not be another flood to devastate the earth."
12. God added: "This is the sign that I am giving for all ages to come, of the covenant between me and you and every living creature with you:
13. I set my bow in the clouds to serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
14. When I bring clouds over the earth, and the bow appears in the clouds,
15. I will recall the covenant I have made between me and you and all living beings, so that the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all mortal beings.
16. As the bow appears in the clouds, I will see it and recall the everlasting covenant that I have established between God and all living beings-- all mortal creatures that are on earth."
17. God told Noah: "This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all mortal creatures that are on earth."
18. The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.)
19. These three were the sons of Noah, and from them the whole earth was peopled.
20. Now Noah, a man of the soil, was the first to plant a vineyard.
21. When he drank some of the wine, he became drunk and lay naked inside his tent.
22. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness, and he told his two brothers outside about it.
23. Shem and Japheth, however, took a robe, and holding it on their backs, they walked backward and covered their father's nakedness; since their faces were turned the other way, they did not see their father's nakedness.
24. When Noah woke up from his drunkenness and learned what his youngest son had done to him,
25. he said: "Cursed be Caanan! The lowest of slaves shall he be to his brothers."
26. He also said: "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem! Let Canaan be his slave.
27. May God expand Japheth, so that he dwells among the tents of Shem; and let Canaan be his slave."
28. Noah lived three hundred and fifty years after the flood.

Genesis 10:1-32
1. These are the descendants of Noah's sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, to whom sons were born after the flood.
2. The descendants of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.
3. The descendants of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.
4. The descendants of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, the Kittim, and the Rodanim.
5. These are the descendants of Japheth, and from them sprang the maritime nations, in their respective lands-- each with its own language-- by their clans within their nations.
6. The descendants of Ham: Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan.
7. The descendants of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The descendants of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.
8. Cush became the father of Nimrod, who was the first potentate on earth.
9. He was a mighty hunter by the grace of the LORD; hence the saying, "Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter by the grace of the LORD."
10. The chief cities of his kingdom were Babylon, Erech, and Accad, all of them in the land of Shinar.
11. From that land he went forth to Asshur, where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, and Calah,
12. as well as Resen, between Nineveh and Calah, the latter being the principal city.
13. Mizraim became the father of the Ludim, the Anamim, the Lehabim, the Naphtuhim,
14. the Pathrusim, the Casluhim, and the Caphtorim from whom the Philistines sprang.
15. Canaan became the father of Sidon, his first-born, and of Heth;
16. also of the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites,
17. the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites,
18. the Arvadites, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites. Afterward, the clans of the Canaanites spread out,
19. so that the Canaanite borders extended from Sidon all the way to Gerar, near Gaza, and all the way to Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, near Lasha.
20. These are the descendants of Ham, according to their clans and languages, by their lands and nations.
21. To Shem also, Japheth's oldest brother and the ancestor of all the children of Eber, sons were born.
22. The descendants of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram.
23. The descendants of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.
24. Arpachshad became the father of Shelah, and Shelah became the father of Eber.
25. To Eber two sons were born: the name of the first was Peleg, for in his time the world was divided; and the name of his brother was Joktan.
26. Joktan became the father of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,
27. Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
28. Obal, Abimael, Sheba,
29. Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were descendants of Joktan.
30. Their settlements extended all the way to Sephar, the eastern hill country.
31. These are the descendants of Shem, according to their clans and languages by their lands and nations.
32. These are the groupings of Noah's sons, according to their origins and by their nations. From these the other nations of the earth branched out after the flood.

Psalms 3:5-8
5. Whenever I cried out to the LORD, I was answered from the holy mountain. Selah
6. Whenever I lay down and slept, the LORD preserved me to rise again.
7. I do not fear, then, thousands of people arrayed against me on every side.
8. Arise, LORD! Save me, my God! You will shatter the jaws of all my foes; you will break the teeth of the wicked.

Proverbs 1:23-27
23. how long will you turn away at my reproof? Lo! I will pour out to you my spirit, I will acquaint you with my words.
24. "Because I called and you refused, I extended my hand and no one took notice;
25. Because you disdained all my counsel, and my reproof you ignored--
26. I, in my turn, will laugh at your doom; I will mock when terror overtakes you;
27. When terror comes upon you like a storm, and your doom approaches like a whirlwind; when distress and anguish befall you.

Matthew 5:1-26
1. When he saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him.
2. He began to teach them, saying:
3. "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
5. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
6. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
7. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
8. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
9. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
10. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11. Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me.
12. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
13. "You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
14. You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
15. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.
16. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.
17. "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.
18. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place.
19. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
20. I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
21. "You have heard that it was said to your ancestors, 'You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment.'
22. But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment, and whoever says to his brother, 'Raqa,' will be answerable to the Sanhedrin, and whoever says, 'You fool,' will be liable to fiery Gehenna.
23. Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar, and there recall that your brother has anything against you,
24. leave your gift there at the altar, go first and be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
25. Settle with your opponent quickly while on the way to court with him. Otherwise your opponent will hand you over to the judge, and the judge will hand you over to the guard, and you will be thrown into prison.
26. Amen, I say to you, you will not be released until you have paid the last penny.
