Genesis 11:1-32
1. And the whole earth is of one pronunciation, and of the same words,
2. and it cometh to pass, in their journeying from the east, that they find a valley in the land of Shinar, and dwell there;
3. and they say each one to his neighbour, `Give help, let us make bricks, and burn [them] thoroughly:` and the brick is to them for stone, and the bitumen hath been to them for mortar.
4. And they say, `Give help, let us build for ourselves a city and tower, and its head in the heavens, and make for ourselves a name, lest we be scattered over the face of all the earth.`
5. And Jehovah cometh down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men have builded;
6. and Jehovah saith, `Lo, the people [is] one, and one pronunciation [is] to them all, and this it hath dreamed of doing; and now, nothing is restrained from them of that which they have purposed to do.
7. Give help, let us go down, and mingle there their pronunciation, so that a man doth not understand the pronunciation of his companion.`
8. And Jehovah doth scatter them from thence over the face of all the earth, and they cease to build the city;
9. therefore hath [one] called its name Babel, for there hath Jehovah mingled the pronunciation of all the earth, and from thence hath Jehovah scattered them over the face of all the earth.

31. And Terah taketh Abram his son, and Lot, son of Haran, his son`s son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, wife of Abram his son, and they go out with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go towards the land of Canaan; and they come unto Charan, and dwell there.

Genesis 12:1-20
1. And Jehovah saith unto Abram, `Go for thyself, from thy land, and from thy kindred, and from the house of thy father, unto the land which I shew thee.
2. And I make thee become a great nation, and bless thee, and make thy name great; and be thou a blessing.
3. And I bless those blessing thee, and him who is disesteeming thee I curse, and blessed in thee have been all families of the ground.`
4. And Abram goeth on, as Jehovah hath spoken unto him, and Lot goeth with him, and Abram [is] a son of five and seventy years in his going out from Charan.
5. And Abram taketh Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother`s son, and all their substance that they have gained, and the persons that they have obtained in Charan; and they go out to go towards the land of Canaan; and they come in to the land of Canaan.
6. And Abram passeth over into the land, unto the place Shechem, unto the oak of Moreh; and the Canaanite [is] then in the land.
7. And Jehovah appeareth unto Abram, and saith, `To thy seed I give this land;` and he buildeth there an altar to Jehovah, who hath appeared unto him.
8. And he removeth from thence towards a mountain at the east of Beth-El, and stretcheth out the tent (Beth-El at the west, and Hai at the east), and he buildeth there an altar to Jehovah, and preacheth in the name of Jehovah.
9. And Abram journeyeth, going on and journeying towards the south.
10. And there is a famine in the land, and Abram goeth down towards Egypt to sojourn there, for the famine [is] grievous in the land;
11. and it cometh to pass as he hath drawn near to enter Egypt, that he saith unto Sarai his wife, `Lo, I pray thee, I have known that thou [art] a woman of beautiful appearance;
12. and it hath come to pass that the Egyptians see thee, and they have said, `This [is] his wife,` and they have slain me, and thee they keep alive:
13. say, I pray thee, thou [art] my sister, so that it is well with me because of thee, and my soul hath lived for thy sake.`
14. And it cometh to pass, at the entering of Abram into Egypt, that the Egyptians see the woman that she [is] exceeding fair;
15. and princes of Pharaoh see her, and praise her unto Pharaoh, and the woman is taken [to] Pharaoh`s house;
16. and to Abram he hath done good because of her, and he hath sheep and oxen, and he-asses, and men-servants, and handmaids, and she-asses, and camels.
17. And Jehovah plagueth Pharaoh and his house -- great plagues -- for the matter of Sarai, Abram`s wife.
18. And Pharaoh calleth for Abram, and saith, `What [is] this thou hast done to me? why hast thou not declared to me that she [is] thy wife?
19. Why hast thou said, She [is] my sister, and I take her to myself for a wife? and now, lo, thy wife, take and go.`
20. And Pharaoh chargeth men concerning him, and they send him away, and his wife, an all that he hath.

Psalms 4:1-3
1. To the Overseer with Stringed Instruments. -- A Psalm of David. In my calling answer Thou me, O God of my righteousness. In adversity Thou gavest enlargement to me; Favour me, and hear my prayer.
2. Sons of men! till when [is] my glory for shame? Ye love a vain thing, ye seek a lie. Selah.
3. And know ye that Jehovah Hath separated a saintly one to Himself. Jehovah heareth in my calling to Him.

Proverbs 1:28-33
28. Then they call me, and I do not answer, They seek me earnestly, and find me not.
29. Because that they have hated knowledge, And the fear of Jehovah have not chosen.
30. They have not consented to my counsel, They have despised all my reproof,
31. And they eat of the fruit of their way, And from their own counsels they are filled.
32. For the turning of the simple slayeth them, And the security of the foolish destroyeth them.
33. And whoso is hearkening to me dwelleth confidently, And [is] quiet from fear of evil!`

Matthew 5:27-48
27. `Ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not commit adultery;
28. but I -- I say to you, that every one who is looking on a woman to desire her, did already commit adultery with her in his heart.
29. `But, if thy right eye doth cause thee to stumble, pluck it out and cast from thee, for it is good to thee that one of thy members may perish, and not thy whole body be cast to gehenna.
30. `And, if thy right hand doth cause thee to stumble, cut it off, and cast from thee, for it is good to thee that one of thy members may perish, and not thy whole body be cast to gehenna.
31. `And it was said, That whoever may put away his wife, let him give to her a writing of divorce;
32. but I -- I say to you, that whoever may put away his wife, save for the matter of whoredom, doth make her to commit adultery; and whoever may marry her who hath been put away doth commit adultery.
33. `Again, ye heard that it was said to the ancients: Thou shalt not swear falsely, but thou shalt pay to the Lord thine oaths;
34. but I -- I say to you, not to swear at all; neither by the heaven, because it is the throne of God,
35. nor by the earth, because it is His footstool, nor by Jerusalem, because it is a city of a great king,
36. nor by thy head mayest thou swear, because thou art not able one hair to make white or black;
37. but let your word be, Yes, Yes, No, No, and that which is more than these is of the evil.
38. `Ye heard that it was said: Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth;
39. but I -- I say to you, not to resist the evil, but whoever shall slap thee on thy right cheek, turn to him also the other;
40. and whoever is willing to take thee to law, and thy coat to take -- suffer to him also the cloak.
41. `And whoever shall impress thee one mile, go with him two,
42. to him who is asking of thee be giving, and him who is willing to borrow from thee thou mayest not turn away.
43. `Ye heard that it was said: Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and shalt hate thine enemy;
44. but I -- I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those cursing you, do good to those hating you, and pray for those accusing you falsely, and persecuting you,
45. that ye may be sons of your Father in the heavens, because His sun He doth cause to rise on evil and good, and He doth send rain on righteous and unrighteous.
46. `For, if ye may love those loving you, what reward have ye? do not also the tax-gatherers the same?
47. and if ye may salute your brethren only, what do ye abundant? do not also the tax-gatherers so?
48. ye shall therefore be perfect, as your Father who [is] in the heavens is perfect.
