DAY 5 Genesis 11-12, John 9-10

GENESIS
11:1
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
11:2
And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
11:3
And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
11:4
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.
11:5
And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
11:6
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.
11:7
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
11:8
So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
11:9
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; 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.
11:10
These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:
11:11
And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:12
And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:
11:13
And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:14
And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:
11:15
And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:16
And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:
11:17
And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:18
And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:
11:19
And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:20
And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:
11:21
And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:22
And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:
11:23
And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:24
And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:
11:25
And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:26
And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
11:27
Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.
11:28
And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.
11:29
And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.
11:30
But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
11:31
And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and 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.
11:32
And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.
12:1
Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
12:2
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:
12:3
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.
12:4
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.
12:5
And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the 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.
12:6
And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
12:7
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.
12:8
And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.
12:9
And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.
12:10
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.
12:11
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:
12:12
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.
12:13
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.
12:14
And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.
12:15
The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.
12:16
And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.
12:17
And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.
12:18
And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that thou hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?
12:19
Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.
12:20
And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

JOHN
9:1
And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
9:2
And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
9:3
Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
9:4
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
9:5
As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
9:6
When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
9:7
And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
9:8
The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9:9
Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
9:10
Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
9:11
He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
9:12
Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
9:13
They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
9:14
And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
9:15
Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
9:16
Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
9:17
They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
9:18
But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
9:19
And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
9:20
His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
9:21
But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
9:22
These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
9:23
Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
9:24
Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
9:25
He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
9:26
Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
9:27
He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?
9:28
Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
9:29
We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
9:30
The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
9:31
Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
9:32
Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
9:33
If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
9:34
They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
9:35
Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
9:36
He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
9:37
And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
9:38
And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
9:39
And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
9:40
And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
9:41
Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
10:1
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
10:2
But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
10:3
To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
10:4
And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
10:5
And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
10:6
This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
10:7
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
10:8
All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
10:9
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10:10
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
10:11
I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
10:12
But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
10:13
The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
10:14
I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
10:15
As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
10:16
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
10:17
Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
10:18
No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
10:19
There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
10:20
And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
10:21
Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
10:22
And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
10:23
And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
10:24
Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
10:25
Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
10:26
But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
10:27
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
10:28
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
10:29
My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
10:30
I and my Father are one.
10:31
Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
10:32
Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
10:33
The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
10:34
Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
10:35
If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
10:36
Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
10:37
If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
10:38
But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
10:39
Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,
10:40
And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.
10:41
And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.
10:42
And many believed on him there.
