17 And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and
the Sinite,

18 And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite,
and the Hamathite : and afterward were the
families of the Canaanites spread abroad.

19 ' And the border of the Canaanites was
from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto
tGaza ; as thou goest unto Sodom and Go-
morrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even unto

20 These are the sons of Ham, after their
families, after their tongues, in their coun-
tries, and in their nations.

21 IF Unto Shem also, the father of all the
children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the
elder, even to him were children born.

22 The ''children of Shem; Elam, and As-
shur, and tArphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.

23 And the children of Aram ; Uz, and
Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

24 And Arphaxad begat t'Salah; and Sa-
lah begat Eber.

25 ™And unto Eber were born two sons :


The building of Babel.

the name of one was || Peleg, for in his days
was the earth divided ; and his brother's name
was Joktan.

26 And Joktan begat Almodad, and She-
leph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,

27 And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,

28 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,

29 And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab :
all these were the sons of Joktan.

30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as
thou goest unto Sephar, a mount of the east.

31 These are the sons of Shem, after
their families, after their tongues, in their
lands, after their nations.

32 "These are the families of the sons of
Noah, after their generations, in their nations :
"and by these were the nations divided in the
earth after tlie flood.


1 One'language in the world. 3 The building of Babel.
5 The confusion of tongues. 10 The generatioTis of
Shem. 27 The generations of Terah the father of
Abram. 31 Terah goeth from Ur to Haran.

AND the whole earth was of one f Ian
guage, and of one t speech.

2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed
I] from the east, that they found a plain in the
land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

3 Ancl t they said one to another. Go to,
let us make brick, and t burn them thoroughly.
And they had brick for stone, and slime had
they for mortar.

4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a
city, and a tower, "whose top may reach unto
heaven ; and let us make us a name, lest we
be scattered abroad upon the face of the
whole earth.

5 '•And the Lord came down to see the
city and the tower, which the children of men

6 And the Lord said. Behold, "the people
is one, and they have all ^ one language ; and
this they begin to do : and now nothing will
be restrained from them, which they have
* imagined to do.

7 Go to, ""let us go down, and there con-
found their language, that they may ^not
understand one another's speech.

8 So ''the Lord scattered them abroad
from thence 'upon the face of all the earth:
and they left off to build the city.

9 Therefore is the name of it called j| Ba-
bel, ''because the Lord did there confound
the language of all the earth : and from thence
did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the
face of all the earth.

10 lI'These are the generations of Shem:
Shem was an hundred years old, and begat
Arphaxad two years after the flood :

27 IT Now these are the generations of
Terah : Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and

28 And Haran died before his father Te-

wives : the name of Abram's wife was ' Sarai ;

his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife;
and they went forth with them from ^Ur of
the Chaldees, to go into ^the land of Canaan;
and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

32 And the days of Terah were two hun-
dred and five years : and Terah died in Haran.


God calleth Abram.


1 God calleth Air am,, and blesseth him with a promise of
Christ. 4 He departeth loith Lot from Haran. 6 He
journeyeth through Canaan, 7 which is promised him
in a vision. Id He is driven by a famine into Egypt.
11 Fear maketh him feign his wife to he his sister.
14 Pharaoh,having taken her from him, by plagues
is compelled to restore her.

"VrOW the ^LoRD had said unto Abram,
IM Get thee out of thy country, and from
• thy kindred, and from thy father's house,
unto a land that I will shew thee :

2 ''And I will make of thee a great nation,
■= and I will bless thee, and make thy name
great ; ^ and thou shalt be a blessing :

3 '=And I will bless them that bless thee,
and curse him that curseth thee : ^ and in thee
shall all families of the earth be blessed.

4 So Abram departed, as the Lord had
spoken unto him, and Lot went with him :
and Abram was seventy and five years old
when he departed out of Haran.

5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and
Lot his brother's son, and all their substance
that they had gathered, and ethe souls that
they had gotten ■'in Haran; and they went
forth to go into the land of Canaan ; and into
the land of Canaan they came.

6 IF And Abram 'passed through the land
unto the place of Sichem, ''unto the plain of
Moreh. 'And the Canaanite was then in
the land.

7 ™And the Lord appeared unto Abram,
and said, "Unto thy seed will I give this
land : and there builded he an "altar unto the
Lord, who appeared unto him.

8 And he removed from thence unto a
mountain on the east of Beth-el, and pitched
his tent, having Beth-el on the west, and Hai
on the east : and there he builded an altar
unto the Lord, and Pcalled upon the name
of the Lord.

9 And Abram journeyed, 1 1 going on still
toward the south.

10 1[ And there was ""a famine in the land :
and Abram = went down into Egypt to sojourn
there; for the famine was * grievous in the land.

11 And it came to pass, when he was
come near to enter into Egypt, that he said
unto Sarai his wife. Behold now, I know that
thou art "a fair woman to look upon :

12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when
the Egyptians shall' see thee, that they shall
say. This is his wife : and they "'will kill me,
but they will save thee alive.

13 ^Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister:
that it may be well with me for thy sake ; and
my soul shall live because of thee.

14 IT And it came to pass, that Avhen
Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians
^'beheld the woman that she was very fair.

1 Abram and Lot return out of Egypt. 7 By disagree-
ment they part asunder. 10 Lot goeth to wicked
Sodom. 14 God reneweth the promise to Abram.
18 He removeth to Hebron, and there buildeth an altar.

AND Abram went up out of Egypt, he,
and his wife, and all that he had, and
Lot with him, ^into the south.

2 '•And Abram was very rich in cattle, in
silver, and in gold.

3 And he went on his journeys "from the
south even to Beth-el, unto the place where
his tent had been at the beginning, between
Beth-el and Hai ;

4 Unto the ''place of the altar, which he
had made there at the first : and there Abram
*= called on the name of the Lord.

5 ^ And Lot also, which went with Abram,
had flocks, and herds, and tents.

6 And ''the land was not able to bear
them, that they might dwell together: for
their substance was great, so that they
could not dwell together.

7 And there was sa strife between the
herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen
of Lot's cattle : ''•and the Canaanite and the
Perizzite dwelled then in the land.

8 And Abram said unto Lot, ' Let there
be no strife, I pray thee, between me and
thee, and between my herdmen and thy
herdmen ; for we he f brethren.

9 ^Is not the Avhole land before thee ?
Separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: 'if
thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to
the right ; or \Uhou depart to the right hand,
then I will go to the left.

10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and be-
held all "' the plain of Jordan, that it was well
watered every where, before the Lord °de-

stroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, "even as the
garden of the Lord, hke the land of Egypt,
as thou comest unto pZoar.

11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of
Jordan ; and Lot journeyed east : and they
separated themselves the one from the other.

12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan,
and Lot i dwelled in the cities of the plain,
and 'pitched his tent toward Sodom.

13 But the men of Sodom "were wicked
and * sinners before the Lord, exceedingly.

14 IT And the Lord said unto Abram,
after that Lot "was separated from him,
Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the
place where thou art, "northward, and south-
ward, and eastward, and westward :

15 For all the land which thou seest, * to
thee will I give it, and ^to thy seed for ever.

16 And ^I will make thy seed as the dust
of the earth : so that if a man can number
the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed
also be numbered.

17 Arise, walk through the land in the
length of it and in the breadth of it ; for I
will give it unto thee.

18 Then. Abram removed his tent, and
came and " dwelt in the fplain of Mamre,
''which is in Hebron, and built there an altar
unto the Lord.

2 That these made war with Bera king of

MelchizedeJe blesseth Abram.

8 And there went out the king of So-
dom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the
king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim,
and the king of Bela, (the same is Zoar ;)
and they joined battle with them in the vale
of Siddim ;

9 With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam,
and with Tidal king of nations, and Amra-
phel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of
Ellasar ; four kings with five.

10 And the vale of Siddim was full of
" shme-pits ; and the kings of Sodom and Go-
morrah fled, and fell there : and they that
remained fled °to the mountain.

1 1 And they took p all the goods of Sodom
and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and
went their way.

12 And they took Lot, Abram's n bro-
ther's son, 'who dwelt in Sodom, and his
goods, and departed.

13 1 And there came one that had es-
caped, and told Abram the Hebrew ; for ' he
dwelt m the plain of Mamre the Amorite,
brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner :
'and these were confederate with Abram.

14 And when Abram heard that "his
brother was taken captive, he || armed his
II trained servants, " born in his own house,
three hundred and eighteen, and pursued
them '^unto Dan.

15 And he divided himself against them,
he and his servants by night, and y smote
them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which
is on the left hand of Damascus.

16 And he brought back ^all the goods,
and also brought again his brother Lot,
and his goods, and the women also, and the

17 IT And the king of Sodom ''went out to
meet him *> (after his return from the slaugh-
ter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that
were with him,) at the valley of Shaveh,
which IS the •= king's dale.

18 And ''Melchizedek king of Salem
brought forth bread and wine : and he was
^the priest of ''the most high God.

19 And he blessed him, and said. Blessed
he Abram of the most high God, e possessor
of heaven and earth :

20 And ''blessed he the most high God,
which hath delivered thine enemies into thy
hand. And he gave him tithes 'of all.

21 And the king of Sodom said unto
Abram, Give me the t persons, and take
the goods to thyself.

22 And Abram said to the king of So-
dom, I ''have lifted up my "hand unto the
Lord, the most high God, 'the possessor of
heaven and earth,

23 That'll will not lake from a thread


Isaac is promised.

even to a shoe-latchet, and that I will not
take any thing that is thine, lest thou
shouldest say, I have made Abram rich :

24 Save only that which the young men
have eaten, and the portion of the men
"which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and
Mamre; let them take their portion.


1 God encourageth Abram. 2 Abram complaineth for
want of an heir. 4 God promiseth him a son, and
a multiplying of his seed. 6 Abram is justified by
faith. 7 Canaan is proviised again, and confirmed
by a sign, 12 and a vision.

AFTER these things the word of the
Lord came unto Abram "^in a vision,
saying, •'Fear not, Abram : I am thy •= shield,
and thy exceeding ''great reward.

2 And Abram said. Lord God, what
wilt thou give me, ''seeing I go childless,
and the steward of my house is this Eliezer
of Damascus ?

3 And Abram said. Behold, to me thou
hast given no seed : and lo, ''one born in
my house is mine heir.

4 And behold, the word of the Lord
came unto him, saying. This shall not be
thine heir ; but he that ^ shall come forth out
of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.

5 And he brought him forth abroad, and
said. Look now toward heaven, and 'Uell the
'stars, if thou be able to number them: and
he said unto him, ''So shall thy seed be.

6 And he 'believed in the Lord; and
he "counted it to him for righteousness.

7 And he said unto him, I am the Lord
that "brought thee out of oUr of the Chal-
dees, Pto give thee this land to inherit it.

8 And he said. Lord God, i whereby shall
I know that I shall inherit it ?

9 And he said unto him, Take me a
heifer of three years old, and a she-goat of
three years old, and a ram of three years
old, and a turtle-dove, and a young pigeon.

10 And he took unto him all these, and
'divided them in the midst, and laid each
piece one against another: but Hhe birds
divided he not.

11 And when the fowls came down upon
the carcasses, Abram drove them away.

12 And when the sun was going down,
'a deep sleep fell upon Abram ; and lo, a hor-
ror of great darkness fell upon him.

13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a
surety "that thy seed shall be a stranger in
a land that is not theirs, and shall serve
them ; and ''they shall afflict them four hun-
dred years ;

14 And also that nation whom they shall
serve, ''will I judge: and afterward y shall
they come out with great substance.
