Genesis contains a creation story of the Earth and the first 2 people, Adam and Eve, and their incestuous (and murderous) family. It describes a version of the ancient Flood story where God, or the Gods, flood the Earth or at least a large portion of it, drowning all living creatures including all animals, men, women, children, infants, but saving Noah and his immediate family. Another period of incestuous family relations afterwards ensues. Genesis then tells the story of the patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, each of which acted sometimes as immoral tyrant and sometimes as holy spokesperson. They all end up, according to these stories, in Egypt, although historical evidence is clear that most Hebrews continued to live in their homeland. Genesis was written and edited by various authors from between the 10th and 6th century BCE, and some scholars believe it wasn't completely written until as late as the 2nd century BCE1.

The Five Books of Moses are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. Together they are called the Pentateuch. Archaeological and historical evidence shows that these five books were primarily composed in the 7th century BCE. Finkelstein & Silberman explain that the evidence is that "the Deuteronomistic History was written in the days of King Josiah, to serve his religious ideology and territorial ambitions, and ... was finished and edited a few decades later in exile. ... The geographical and ethnic details of both the patriarchal origin stories and the Exodus liberation story bear the hallmarks of having been composed in the seventh century BCE"2. These five scrolls did not start out as being considered the holy word of god. They were modified and moulded over hundreds of years by various editors3 - although Christian tradition fiercely fought for them to be considered to be the works of Moses, this is clearly not the case. "The Pentateuch [was] considered to be canonical by the time of Ezra and Nehemiah in the fifth century BC"3.

2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.the earth hath existed waste and void, and darkness `is' on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God fluttering on the face of the waters,
3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.and God saith, `Let light be;' and light is.
4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.And God seeth the light that `it is' good, and God separateth between the light and the darkness,
5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.and God calleth to the light `Day,' and to the darkness He hath called `Night;' and there is an evening, and there is a morning -- day one.
6And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.And God saith, `Let an expanse be in the midst of the waters, and let it be separating between waters and waters.'
7And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.And God maketh the expanse, and it separateth between the waters which `are' under the expanse, and the waters which `are' above the expanse: and it is so.
8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.And God calleth to the expanse `Heavens;' and there is an evening, and there is a morning -- day second.
9And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.And God saith, `Let the waters under the heavens be collected unto one place, and let the dry land be seen:' and it is so.
10And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.And God calleth to the dry land `Earth,' and to the collection of the waters He hath called `Seas;' and God seeth that `it is' good.
11And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.And God saith, `Let the earth yield tender grass, herb sowing seed, fruit-tree (whose seed `is' in itself) making fruit after its kind, on the earth:' and it is so.
12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.And the earth bringeth forth tender grass, herb sowing seed after its kind, and tree making fruit (whose seed `is' in itself) after its kind; and God seeth that `it is' good;
13And the evening and the morning were the third day.and there is an evening, and there is a morning -- day third.
14And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:And God saith, `Let luminaries be in the expanse of the heavens, to make a separation between the day and the night, then they have been for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years,
15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.and they have been for luminaries in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth:' and it is so.
16And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.And God maketh the two great luminaries, the great luminary for the rule of the day, and the small luminary -- and the stars -- for the rule of the night;
17And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,and God giveth them in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth,
18And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.and to rule over day and over night, and to make a separation between the light and the darkness; and God seeth that `it is' good;
19And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.and there is an evening, and there is a morning -- day fourth.
20And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.And God saith, `Let the waters teem with the teeming living creature, and fowl let fly on the earth on the face of the expanse of the heavens.'
21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.And God prepareth the great monsters, and every living creature that is creeping, which the waters have teemed with, after their kind, and every fowl with wing, after its kind, and God seeth that `it is' good.
22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.And God blesseth them, saying, `Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and the fowl let multiply in the earth:'
23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.and there is an evening, and there is a morning -- day fifth.
24And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.And God saith, `Let the earth bring forth the living creature after its kind, cattle and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after its kind:' and it is so.
25And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.And God maketh the beast of the earth after its kind, and the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, and God seeth that `it is' good.
26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.And God saith, `Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that is creeping on the earth.'
27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.And God prepareth the man in His image; in the image of God He prepared him, a male and a female He prepared them.
28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.And God blesseth them, and God saith to them, `Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over every living thing that is creeping upon the earth.'
29And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.And God saith, `Lo, I have given to you every herb sowing seed, which `is' upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in which `is' the fruit of a tree sowing seed, to you it is for food;
30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.and to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the heavens, and to every creeping thing on the earth, in which `is' breath of life, every green herb `is' for food:' and it is so.
31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.And God seeth all that He hath done, and lo, very good; and there is an evening, and there is a morning -- day the sixth.

2And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.and God completeth by the seventh day His work which He hath made, and ceaseth by the seventh day from all His work which He hath made.
3And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.And God blesseth the seventh day, and sanctifieth it, for in it He hath ceased from all His work which God had prepared for making.
4These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,These `are' births of the heavens and of the earth in their being prepared, in the day of Jehovah God's making earth and heavens;
5And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.and no shrub of the field is yet in the earth, and no herb of the field yet sprouteth, for Jehovah God hath not rained upon the earth, and a man there is not to serve the ground,
6But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.and a mist goeth up from the earth, and hath watered the whole face of the ground.
7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.And Jehovah God formeth the man -- dust from the ground, and breatheth into his nostrils breath of life, and the man becometh a living creature.
8And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.And Jehovah God planteth a garden in Eden, at the east, and He setteth there the man whom He hath formed;
9And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.and Jehovah God causeth to sprout from the ground every tree desirable for appearance, and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.And a river is going out from Eden to water the garden, and from thence it is parted, and hath become four chief `rivers';
11The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;the name of the one `is' Pison, it `is' that which is surrounding the whole land of the Havilah where the gold `is',
12And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.and the gold of that land `is' good, there `is' the bdolach and the shoham stone;
13And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.and the name of the second river `is' Gibon, it `is' that which is surrounding the whole land of Cush;
14And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.and the name of the third river `is' Hiddekel, it `is' that which is going east of Asshur; and the fourth river is Phrat.
15And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.And Jehovah God taketh the man, and causeth him to rest in the garden of Eden, to serve it, and to keep it.
16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:And Jehovah God layeth a charge on the man, saying, `Of every tree of the garden eating thou dost eat;
17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.and of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou dost not eat of it, for in the day of thine eating of it -- dying thou dost die.'
18And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.And Jehovah God saith, `Not good for the man to be alone, I do make to him an helper -- as his counterpart.'
19And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.And Jehovah God formeth from the ground every beast of the field, and every fowl of the heavens, and bringeth in unto the man, to see what he doth call it; and whatever the man calleth a living creature, that `is' its name.
20And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.And the man calleth names to all the cattle, and to fowl of the heavens, and to every beast of the field; and to man hath not been found an helper -- as his counterpart.
21And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;And Jehovah God causeth a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he sleepeth, and He taketh one of his ribs, and closeth up flesh in its stead.
22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.And Jehovah God buildeth up the rib which He hath taken out of the man into a woman, and bringeth her in unto the man;
23And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.and the man saith, `This `is' the `proper' step! bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh!' for this it is called Woman, for from a man hath this been taken;
24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.therefore doth a man leave his father and his mother, and hath cleaved unto his wife, and they have become one flesh.
25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.And they are both of them naked, the man and his wife, and they are not ashamed of themselves.

1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?And the serpent hath been subtile above every beast of the field which Jehovah God hath made, and he saith unto the woman, `Is it true that God hath said, Ye do not eat of every tree of the garden?'

2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:And the woman saith unto the serpent, `Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we do eat,
3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.and of the fruit of the tree which `is' in the midst of the garden God hath said, Ye do not eat of it, nor touch it, lest ye die.'
4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:And the serpent saith unto the woman, `Dying, ye do not die,
5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.for God doth know that in the day of your eating of it -- your eyes have been opened, and ye have been as God, knowing good and evil.'
6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.And the woman seeth that the tree `is' good for food, and that it `is' pleasant to the eyes, and the tree is desirable to make `one' wise, and she taketh of its fruit and eateth, and giveth also to her husband with her, and he doth eat;
7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.and the eyes of them both are opened, and they know that they `are' naked, and they sew fig-leaves, and make to themselves girdles.
8And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.And they hear the sound of Jehovah God walking up and down in the garden at the breeze of the day, and the man and his wife hide themselves from the face of Jehovah God in the midst of the trees of the garden.
9And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?And Jehovah God calleth unto the man, and saith to him, `Where `art' thou?'
10And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.and he saith, `Thy sound I have heard in the garden, and I am afraid, for I am naked, and I hide myself.'
11And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?And He saith, `Who hath declared to thee that thou `art' naked? of the tree of which I have commanded thee not to eat, hast thou eaten?'
12And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.and the man saith, `The woman whom Thou didst place with me -- she hath given to me of the tree -- and I do eat.'
13And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.And Jehovah God saith to the woman, `What `is' this thou hast done?' and the woman saith, `The serpent hath caused me to forget -- and I do eat.'
14And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:And Jehovah God saith unto the serpent, `Because thou hast done this, cursed `art' thou above all the cattle, and above every beast of the field: on thy belly dost thou go, and dust thou dost eat, all days of thy life;
15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.and enmity I put between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; he doth bruise thee -- the head, and thou dost bruise him -- the heel.'
16Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.Unto the woman He said, `Multiplying I multiply thy sorrow and thy conception, in sorrow dost thou bear children, and toward thy husband `is' thy desire, and he doth rule over thee.'
17And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;And to the man He said, `Because thou hast hearkened to the voice of thy wife, and dost eat of the tree concerning which I have charged thee, saying, Thou dost not eat of it, cursed `is' the ground on thine account; in sorrow thou dost eat of it all days of thy life,
18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;and thorn and bramble it doth bring forth to thee, and thou hast eaten the herb of the field;
19In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.by the sweat of thy face thou dost eat bread till thy return unto the ground, for out of it hast thou been taken, for dust thou `art', and unto dust thou turnest back.'
20And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.And the man calleth his wife's name Eve: for she hath been mother of all living.
21Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.And Jehovah God doth make to the man and to his wife coats of skin, and doth clothe them.
22And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:And Jehovah God saith, `Lo, the man was as one of Us, as to the knowledge of good and evil; and now, lest he send forth his hand, and have taken also of the tree of life, and eaten, and lived to the age,' --
23Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.Jehovah God sendeth him forth from the garden of Eden to serve the ground from which he hath been taken;
24So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.yea, he casteth out the man, and causeth to dwell at the east of the garden of Eden the cherubs and the flame of the sword which is turning itself round to guard the way of the tree of life.

2And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.and she addeth to bear his brother, even Abel. And Abel is feeding a flock, and Cain hath been servant of the ground.
3And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.And it cometh to pass at the end of days that Cain bringeth from the fruit of the ground a present to Jehovah;
4And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:and Abel, he hath brought, he also, from the female firstlings of his flock, even from their fat ones; and Jehovah looketh unto Abel and unto his present,
5But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.and unto Cain and unto his present He hath not looked; and it is very displeasing to Cain, and his countenance is fallen.
6And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?And Jehovah saith unto Cain, `Why hast thou displeasure? and why hath thy countenance fallen?
7If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.Is there not, if thou dost well, acceptance? and if thou dost not well, at the opening a sin-offering is crouching, and unto thee its desire, and thou rulest over it.'
8And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.And Cain saith unto Abel his brother, ``Let us go into the field;'' and it cometh to pass in their being in the field, that Cain riseth up against Abel his brother, and slayeth him.
9And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?And Jehovah saith unto Cain, `Where `is' Abel thy brother?' and he saith, `I have not known; my brother's keeper -- I?'
10And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.And He saith, `What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood is crying unto Me from the ground;
11And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;and now, cursed `art' thou from the ground, which hath opened her mouth to receive the blood of thy brother from thy hand;
12When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.when thou tillest the ground, it doth not add to give its strength to thee -- a wanderer, even a trembling one, thou art in the earth.'
13And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.And Cain saith unto Jehovah, `Greater is my punishment than to be borne;
14Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.lo, Thou hast driven me to-day from off the face of the ground, and from Thy face I am hid; and I have been a wanderer, even a trembling one, in the earth, and it hath been -- every one finding me doth slay me.'
15And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.And Jehovah saith to him, `Therefore -- of any slayer of Cain sevenfold it is required;' and Jehovah setteth to Cain a token that none finding him doth slay him.
16And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.And Cain goeth out from before Jehovah, and dwelleth in the land, moving about east of Eden;
17And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.and Cain knoweth his wife, and she conceiveth, and beareth Enoch; and he is building a city, and he calleth the name of the city, according to the name of his son -- Enoch.
18And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.And born to Enoch is Irad; and Irad hath begotten Mehujael; and Mehujael hath begotten Methusael; and Methusael hath begotten Lamech.
19And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.And Lamech taketh to himself two wives, the name of the one Adah, and the name of the second Zillah.
20And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.And Adah beareth Jabal, he hath been father of those inhabiting tents and purchased possessions;
21And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.and the name of his brother `is' Jubal, he hath been father of every one handling harp and organ.
22And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.And Zillah she also bare Tubal-Cain, an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron; and a sister of Tubal-Cain `is' Naamah.
23And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.And Lamech saith to his wives: -- `Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; Wives of Lamech, give ear `to' my saying: For a man I have slain for my wound, Even a young man for my hurt;
24If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.For sevenfold is required for Cain, And for Lamech seventy and sevenfold.'
25And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.And Adam again knoweth his wife, and she beareth a son, and calleth his name Seth, `for God hath appointed for me another seed instead of Abel:' for Cain had slain him.
26And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.And to Seth, to him also a son hath been born, and he calleth his name Enos; then a beginning was made of preaching in the name of Jehovah.

4For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.for after other seven days I am sending rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and have wiped away all the substance that I have made from off the face of the ground.'
5And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.And Noah doth according to all that Jehovah hath commanded him:
6And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.and Noah `is' a son of six hundred years, and the deluge of waters hath been upon the earth.
7And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.And Noah goeth in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, unto the ark, from the presence of the waters of the deluge;
8Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,of the clean beasts and of the beasts that `are' not clean, and of the fowl, and of every thing that is creeping upon the ground,
9There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.two by two they have come in unto Noah, unto the ark, a male and a female, as God hath commanded Noah.
10And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.And it cometh to pass, after the seventh of the days, that waters of the deluge have been on the earth.
11In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.In the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, in this day have been broken up all fountains of the great deep, and the net-work of the heavens hath been opened,
12And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.and the shower is on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;In this self-same day went in Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, sons of Noah, and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them, unto the ark;
14They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.they, and every living creature after its kind, and every beast after its kind, and every creeping thing that is creeping on the earth after its kind, and every fowl after its kind, every bird -- every wing.
15And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life.And they come in unto Noah, unto the ark, two by two of all the flesh in which `is' a living spirit;
16And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.and they that are coming in, male and female of all flesh, have come in as God hath commanded him, and Jehovah doth close `it' for him.
17And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.And the deluge is forty days on the earth, and the waters multiply, and lift up the ark, and it is raised up from off the earth;
18And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.and the waters are mighty, and multiply exceedingly upon the earth; and the ark goeth on the face of the waters.
19And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.And the waters have been very very mighty on the earth, and covered are all the high mountains which `are' under the whole heavens;
20Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.fifteen cubits upwards have the waters become mighty, and the mountains are covered;
21And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:and expire doth all flesh that is moving on the earth, among fowl, and among cattle, and among beasts, and among all the teeming things which are teeming on the earth, and all mankind;
22All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.all in whose nostrils `is' breath of a living spirit -- of all that `is' in the dry land -- have died.
23And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.And wiped away is all the substance that is on the face of the ground, from man unto beast, unto creeping thing, and unto fowl of the heavens; yea, they are wiped away from the earth, and only Noah is left, and those who `are' with him in the ark;
24And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.and the waters are mighty on the earth a hundred and fifty days.

2And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.and I give My covenant between Me and thee, and multiply thee very exceedingly.'
3And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,And Abram falleth upon his face, and God speaketh with him, saying,
4As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.`I -- lo, My covenant `is' with thee, and thou hast become father of a multitude of nations;

8And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.and I have given to thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojournings, the whole land of Canaan, for a possession age-during, and I have become their God.'
9And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.And God saith unto Abraham, `And thou dost keep My covenant, thou and thy seed after thee, to their generations;
10This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.this `is' My covenant which ye keep between Me and you, and thy seed after thee: Every male of you `is' to be circumcised;

13He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.he is certainly circumcised who `is' born in thine house, or bought with thy money; and My covenant hath become in your flesh a covenant age-during;
14And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.and an uncircumcised one, a male, the flesh of whose foreskin is not circumcised, even that person hath been cut off from his people; My covenant he hath broken.'
15And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.And God saith unto Abraham, `Sarai thy wife -- thou dost not call her name Sarai, for Sarah `is' her name;
16And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.and I have blessed her, and have also given to thee a son from her; and I have blessed her, and she hath become nations -- kings of peoples are from her.'
17Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?And Abraham falleth upon his face, and laugheth, and saith in his heart, `To the son of an hundred years is one born? or doth Sarah -- daughter of ninety years -- bear?'

2And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,and he lifteth up his eyes and looketh, and lo, three men standing by him, and he seeth, and runneth to meet them from the opening of the tent, and boweth himself towards the earth,
3And said, My LORD, if now I have found favor in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:And he saith, `My Lord, if, I pray thee, I have found grace in thine eyes, do not, I pray thee, pass on from thy servant;
4Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:let, I pray thee, a little water be accepted, and wash your feet, and recline under the tree;
5And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.and I bring a piece of bread, and support ye your heart; afterwards pass on, for therefore have ye passed over unto your servant;' and they say, `So mayest thou do as thou has spoken.'
6And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.And Abraham hasteth towards the tent, unto Sarah, and saith, `Hasten three measures of flour-meal, knead, and make cakes;'
7And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetched a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.and Abraham ran unto the herd, and taketh a son of the herd, tender and good, and giveth unto the young man, and he hasteth to prepare it;
8And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.and he taketh butter and milk, and the son of the herd which he hath prepared, and setteth before them; and he is standing by them under the tree, and they do eat.
9And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.And they say unto him, `Where `is' Sarah thy wife?' and he saith, `Lo -- in the tent;'
10And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.and he saith, `returning I return unto thee, about the time of life, and lo, to Sarah thy wife a son.'
11Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.And Sarah is hearkening at the opening of the tent, which is behind him;
12Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?and Abraham and Sarah `are' aged, entering into days -- the way of women hath ceased to be to Sarah;
13And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?and Sarah laugheth in her heart, saying, `After I have waxed old I have had pleasure! -- my lord also `is' old!'
14Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.And Jehovah saith unto Abraham, `Why `is' this? Sarah hath laughed, saying, Is it true really -- I bear -- and I am aged? Is any thing too wonderful for Jehovah? at the appointed time I return unto thee, about the time of life, and Sarah hath a son.'
15Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.And Sarah denieth, saying, `I did not laugh;' for she hath been afraid; and He saith, `Nay, but thou didst laugh.'
16And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.And the men rise from thence, and look on the face of Sodom, and Abraham is going with them to send them away;
17And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;and Jehovah said, `Am I concealing from Abraham that which I am doing,
18Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?and Abraham certainly becometh a nation great and mighty, and blessed in him have been all nations of the earth?
19For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.for I have known him, that he commandeth his children, and his house after him (and they have kept the way of Jehovah), to do righteousness and judgment, that Jehovah may bring on Abraham that which He hath spoken concerning him.'
20And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;And Jehovah saith, `The cry of Sodom and Gomorrah -- because great; and their sin -- because exceeding grievous:
21I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.I go down now, and see whether according to its cry which is coming unto Me they have done completely -- and if not -- I know;'
22And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.and the men turn from thence, and go towards Sodom; and Abraham is yet standing before Jehovah.
23And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?And Abraham draweth nigh and saith, `Dost Thou also consume righteous with wicked?
24Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?peradventure there are fifty righteous in the midst of the city; dost Thou also consume, and not bear with the place for the sake of the fifty -- the righteous who `are' in its midst?
25That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?Far be it from Thee to do according to this thing, to put to death the righteous with the wicked; that it hath been -- as the righteous so the wicked -- far be it from Thee; doth the Judge of all the earth not do justice?'
26And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.And Jehovah saith, `If I find in Sodom fifty righteous in the midst of the city, then have I borne with all the place for their sake.'
27And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD, which am but dust and ashes:And Abraham answereth and saith, `Lo, I pray thee, I have willed to speak unto the Lord, and I -- dust and ashes;
28Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.peradventure there are lacking five of the fifty righteous -- dost Thou destroy for five the whole of the city?' and He saith, `I destroy `it' not, if I find there forty and five.'
29And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's sake.And he addeth again to speak unto Him and saith, `Peradventure there are found there forty?' and He saith, `I do `it' not, because of the forty.'
30And he said unto him, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.And he saith, `Let it not be, I Pray thee, displeasing to the Lord, and I speak: peradventure there are found there thirty?' and He saith, `I do `it' not, if I find there thirty.'
31And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake.And he saith, `Lo, I pray thee, I have willed to speak unto the Lord: peradventure there are found there twenty?' and He saith, `I do not destroy `it', because of the twenty.'
32And he said, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.And he saith, `Let it not be, I pray Thee, displeasing to the Lord, and I speak only this time: peradventure there are found there ten?' and He saith, `I do not destroy `it', because of the ten.'
33And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.And Jehovah goeth on, when He hath finished speaking unto Abraham, and Abraham hath turned back to his place.

2And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.and he saith, `Lo, I pray you, my lords, turn aside, I pray you, unto the house of your servant, and lodge, and wash your feet -- then ye have risen early and gone on your way;' and they say, `Nay, but in the broad place we do lodge.'
3And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.And he presseth on them greatly, and they turn aside unto him, and come in unto his house; and he maketh for them a banquet, and hath baked unleavened things; and they do eat.
4But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:Before they lie down, the men of the city -- men of Sodom -- have come round about against the house, from young even unto aged, all the people from the extremity;
5And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.and they call unto Lot and say to him, `Where `are' the men who have come in unto thee to-night? bring them out unto us, and we know them.'
6And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,And Lot goeth out unto them, to the opening, and the door hath shut behind him,
7And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.and saith, `Do not, I pray you, my brethren, do evil;
8Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.lo, I pray you, I have two daughters, who have not known any one; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do to them as `is' good in your eyes; only to these men do not anything, for therefore have they come in within the shadow of my roof.'
9And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.And they say, `Come nigh hither;' they say also, `This one hath come in to sojourn, and he certainly judgeth! now, we do evil to thee more than `to' them;' and they press against the man, against Lot greatly, and come nigh to break the door.
10But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.And the men put forth their hand, and bring in Lot unto them, into the house, and have shut the door;
11And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.and the men who `are' at the opening of the house they have smitten with blindness, from small even unto great, and they weary themselves to find the opening.
12And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:And the men say unto Lot, `Whom hast thou here still? son-in-law, thy sons also, and thy daughters, and all whom thou hast in the city, bring out from this place;
13For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.for we are destroying this place, for their cry hath been great `before' the face of Jehovah, and Jehovah doth send us to destroy it.'

19Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast showed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:lo, I pray thee, thy servant hath found grace in thine eyes, and thou dost make great thy kindness which thou hast done with me by saving my life, and I am unable to escape to the mountain, lest the evil cleave `to' me, and I have died;
20Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.lo, I pray thee, this city `is' near to flee thither, and it `is' little; let me escape, I pray thee, thither, (is it not little?) and my soul doth live.'
21And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.And he saith unto him, `Lo, I have accepted thy face also for this thing, without overthrowing the city `for' which thou hast spoken;
22Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.haste, escape thither, for I am not able to do anything till thine entering thither;' therefore hath he calleth the name of the city Zoar.

31And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.and Jacob saith, `Sell to-day thy birthright to me.'
32And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?And Esau saith, `Lo, I am going to die, and what is this to me -- birthright?'
33And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.and Jacob saith, `Swear to me to-day:' and he sweareth to him, and selleth his birthright to Jacob;
34Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.and Jacob hath given to Esau bread and pottage of lentiles, and he eateth, and drinketh, and riseth, and goeth; and Esau despiseth the birthright.

14And she put her widow's garments off from her, and covered her with a vail, and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which is by the way to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him to wife.and she turneth aside the garments of her widowhood from off her, and covereth herself with a vail, and wrappeth herself up, and sitteth in the opening of Enayim, which `is' by the way to Timnath, for she hath seen that Shelah hath grown up, and she hath not been given to him for a wife.
15When Judah saw her, he thought her to be an harlot; because she had covered her face.And Judah seeth her, and reckoneth her for a harlot, for she hath covered her face,
16And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee; (for he knew not that she was his daughter in law.) And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me?and he turneth aside unto her by the way, and saith, `Come, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee,' (for he hath not known that she `is' his daughter-in-law); and she saith, `What dost thou give to me, that thou mayest come in unto me?'
17And he said, I will send thee a kid from the flock. And she said, Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it?and he saith, `I -- I send a kid of the goats from the flock.' And she saith, `Dost thou give a pledge till thou send `it'?'
18And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she said, Thy signet, and thy bracelets, and thy staff that is in thine hand. And he gave it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him.and he saith, `What `is' the pledge that I give to thee?' and she saith, `Thy seal, and thy ribbon, and thy staff which `is' in thy hand;' and he giveth to her, and goeth in unto her, and she conceiveth to him;

21Then he asked the men of that place, saying, Where is the harlot, that was openly by the way side? And they said, There was no harlot in this place.And he asketh the men of her place, saying, `Where `is' the separated one -- she in Enayim, by the way?' and they say, `There hath not been in this `place' a separated one.'
22And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the men of the place said, that there was no harlot in this place.And he turneth back unto Judah, and saith, `I have not found her; and the men of the place also have said, There hath not been in this `place' a separated one,'
23And Judah said, Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed: behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.and Judah saith, `Let her take to herself, lest we become despised; lo, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.'
24And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.And it cometh to pass about three months `after', that it is declared to Judah, saying, `Tamar thy daughter-in-law hath committed fornication; and also, lo, she hath conceived by fornication:' and Judah saith, `Bring her out -- and she is burnt.'
25When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.She is brought out, and she hath sent unto her husband's father, saying, `To a man whose these `are', I `am' pregnant;' and she saith, `Discern, I pray thee, whose `are' these -- the seal, and the ribbons, and the staff.'
26And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.And Judah discerneth and saith, `She hath been more righteous than I, because that I did not give her to Shelah my son;' and he hath not added to know her again.
27And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb.And it cometh to pass in the time of her bearing, that lo, twins `are' in her womb;

34For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.for how do I go up unto my father, and the youth not with me? lest I look on the evil which doth find my father.'
