00:16 Hi and welcome to His Words Are Life.
00:19 I'm Kelly Mowrer, and we're
00:21 going to continue reading today
00:22 from the book of Genesis.
00:24 But before we read together, let's pray.
00:26 Dear God, thank you so much for this opportunity
00:31 that we have right now to come apart and...
00:34 and spend a few minutes in Your presence reading from Your Word.
00:38 Please come very close to us as we read.
00:40 and guide our minds into a deeper understanding
00:44 so that we can walk more closely with You.
00:46 Thank you for this opportunity, and thank you for loving us.
00:50 We love You so much, Amen.
00:53 When we were reading together last, we were reading the story
00:56 of Noah - who in a world full of sin and corruption
00:59 of every kind - remained righteous and close to God.
01:03 The Bible says he found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
01:06 And God instructed Noah to build an ark
01:08 because He was going to send the flood to destroy the
01:13 wickedness in the earth.
01:15 We pick up the story in chapter 7 and verse 22.
01:19 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life,
01:23 of all that was in the dry land, died.
01:27 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the
01:30 face of the ground, both man, and cattle,
01:34 and creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven;
01:36 and they were destroyed from the earth:
01:38 and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him
01:42 in the ark. And the waters prevailed upon the earth
01:45 a hundred and fifty days.
01:48 Continuing now with chapter 8 in Genesis.
01:50 And this is the King James version.
01:52 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing,
01:56 and all the cattle that was with him in the ark;
01:58 and God made a wind to pass over the earth,
02:01 and the waters assuaged;
02:03 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven
02:06 were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;
02:09 And the waters returned from off the earth continually:
02:12 and after the end of the hundred and fifty days
02:14 the waters were abated. And the ark rested in the seventh month,
02:20 on the seventeenth day of the month,
02:22 upon the mountains of Ararat.
02:24 And the waters decreased con- tinually until the tenth month:
02:28 in the tenth month, on the first day of the month,
02:31 were the tops of the mountains seen.
02:34 And it came to pass at the end of forty days,
02:37 that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made:
02:40 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro,
02:44 until the waters were dried up from off the earth.
02:47 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters
02:51 were abated from off the face of the ground;
02:53 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot,
02:56 and she returned unto him into the ark,
02:58 for the waters were on the face of the whole earth:
03:00 then he put forth his hand, and took her,
03:02 and pulled her in unto him into the ark.
03:05 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth
03:10 the dove out of the ark;
03:11 And the dove came in to him in the evening;
03:13 and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off:
03:18 so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
03:22 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove;
03:26 which returned not again unto him any more.
03:29 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year,
03:32 in the first month, the first day of the month,
03:35 the waters were dried up from off the earth:
03:37 and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked,
03:41 and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
03:45 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day
03:48 of the month, was the earth dried.
03:50 And God spake unto Noah, saying,
03:53 "Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife,
03:56 and thy sons, and thy son's wives with thee.
03:59 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee,
04:03 of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle,
04:05 and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth;
04:08 that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful,
04:12 and multiply upon the earth.
04:15 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife,
04:20 and his sons' wives with him:
04:22 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl,
04:25 and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds,
04:28 went forth out of the ark.
04:30 And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord;
04:33 and took of every clean beast,
04:35 and of every clean fowl,
04:37 and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
04:39 And the Lord smelled a sweet savor; and the Lord said
04:43 in His heart, "I will not again curse the ground any more
04:47 for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart
04:50 is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more
04:55 every thing living, as I have done.
04:57 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest,
05:00 and cold and heat, and summer and winter,
05:03 and day and night shall not cease. "
05:06 We are starting with chapter 9 in the book of Genesis.
05:09 This is the King James version.
05:11 And God blessed Noah and his
05:13 sons, and said unto them,
05:15 "Be fruitful, and multiply,
05:16 and replenish the earth.
05:18 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon
05:21 every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air,
05:24 upon all the moveth upon the earth,
05:26 and upon all the fishes of the sea;
05:28 into your hand are they delivered.
05:30 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you;
05:35 even as the green herb have I given you all things.
05:38 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof,
05:43 shall ye not eat.
05:44 And surely your blood of your lives will I require;
05:48 at the hand of every beast will I require it,
05:51 and at the hand of man: at the hand of every man's
05:54 brother will I require the life of man.
05:57 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed:
06:02 for in the image of God made He man.
06:05 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply;
06:09 bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein. "
06:12 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
06:17 "And I, behold, I establish My covenant with you,
06:22 and with your seed after you;
06:24 And with every living creature that is with you,
06:27 of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth
06:30 with you; from all that go out of the ark,
06:32 to every beast of the earth.
06:34 And I will establish My covenant with you;
06:37 neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters
06:41 of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood
06:45 to destroy the earth. "
06:47 And God said, "This is the token of the covenant which I make
06:52 between Me and you and every living creature
06:56 that is with you, for perpetual generations:
06:59 I do set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token
07:03 of a covenant between Me and the earth.
07:06 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the
07:09 earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
07:12 And I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you
07:15 and every living creature of all flesh;
07:17 and the waters shall no more become a flood
07:20 to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud;
07:25 and I will look upon it, that I may remember
07:28 the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature
07:31 of all flesh that is upon the earth. "
07:34 And God said unto Noah,
07:36 "This is the token of the covenant, which I have
07:38 established between Me and all flesh that is upon the earth. "
07:42 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark,
07:45 were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
07:50 These are the three sons of Noah:
07:52 and of them was the whole earth overspread.
07:56 And Noah began to be a husbandman,
07:59 and he planted a vineyard:
08:00 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken;
08:03 and he was uncovered within his tent.
08:05 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father,
08:10 and told his two brethren without.
08:12 And Shem and Japheth took a garment,
08:14 and laid it upon both their shoulders and went backward,
08:17 and covered the nakedness of their father;
08:19 and their faces were backward,
08:20 and they saw not their father's nakedness.
08:23 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son
08:28 had done unto him. And he said,
08:31 "Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be
08:35 unto his brethren. "
08:36 And he said, "Blessed be the Lord God of Shem;
08:39 and Canaan shall be his servant.
08:41 And God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents
08:45 of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. "
08:49 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
08:53 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years:
08:57 and he died.
08:59 We are reading in Genesis chapter 10.
09:01 And as I am looking here at chapter 10, I see there is
09:05 a lot of genealogy here,
09:06 and you probably could read those names and pronounce them
09:08 better than I could anyway. So let's skip on down
09:11 to chapter... Well let's read the last verse of chapter 10.
09:16 It will be verse 32. It says:
09:17 These are the families of the sons of Noah,
09:19 after their generations, in their nations:
09:22 and by these were the nations divided in the earth
09:25 after the flood.
09:26 And now we'll continue with Genesis in chapter 11.
09:29 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
09:34 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east,
09:37 that they found a plain in the land of Shinar;
09:40 and they dwelt there. And they said one to another,
09:43 "Go, to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. "
09:47 And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.
09:50 And they said, "Go, to, let us build us a city and a tower,
09:55 whose top may reach unto heaven;
09:58 and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad
10:01 upon the face of the whole earth. "
10:03 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower,
10:07 which the children of men builded.
10:08 And the Lord said, "Behold, the people is one,
10:13 and they have all one language;
10:15 and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be
10:19 restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
10:22 Go to, let Us go down, and there confound their language,
10:27 that they may not understand one another's speech. "
10:32 Therefore is the name of it called Babel;
10:35 because the Lord did there confound the language
10:37 of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them
10:40 abroad upon the face of all the earth.
10:42 These are the generations of Shem:
10:45 and again, rather than reading names that you probably can
10:48 pronounce better than I can, let's skip through all of
10:50 Shem's generations and turn over to Genesis chapter 11
10:55 and let's pick it up in... in verse 27.
10:58 Now these are the generations of Terah:
11:02 Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.
11:07 And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his
11:10 nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.
11:12 And Abram and Nahor took them wives:
11:15 the name of Abram's wife was Sarai;
11:17 and the name of Nahor's wife Milcah, the daughter of Haran,
11:20 the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.
11:22 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
11:26 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran
11:30 his son's son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law,
11:33 his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur
11:37 of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan;
11:40 and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.
11:42 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years:
11:46 and Terah died in Haran.
11:49 Reading in Genesis chapter 12,
11:51 and this is the King James version.
11:53 Now the Lord had said unto Abram,
11:56 "Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred,
11:59 and from thy father's house,
12:00 unto a land that I will show thee:
12:03 And I will make of thee a great nation,
12:06 and I will bless thee, and make thy name great;
12:09 and thou shalt be a blessing:
12:11 And I will bless them that bless thee,
12:14 and curse him that curseth thee:
12:16 and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. "
12:21 So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him;
12:25 and Lot went with him; and Abram was seventy and five years old
12:29 when he departed out of Haran.
12:31 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son,
12:36 and all their substance that they had gathered,
12:38 and the souls that they had gotten in Haran;
12:41 and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan;
12:43 and into the land of Canaan they came.
12:46 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem,
12:50 unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
12:55 And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said,
12:57 "Unto thy seed will I give this land:
13:00 and there builded he an altar unto the Lord,
13:03 who appeared unto him.
13:05 And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel
13:09 and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west,
13:12 and Haion on the east: and there he builded an altar
13:16 unto the Lord, and called upon the name of the Lord.
13:19 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.
13:23 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down
13:27 into Egypt to sojourn there;
13:29 for the famine was grievous in the land.
13:31 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt,
13:35 that he said unto Sarai his wife, "Behold now,
13:40 I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon:
13:43 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall
13:46 see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife:
13:50 and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive.
13:53 Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well
13:58 with me for thy sake;
13:59 and my soul shall live because of thee. "
14:02 And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt,
14:06 the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair,
14:09 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her
14:12 before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.
14:16 And he entreated Abram well for her sake:
14:19 and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses,
14:22 and menservants, and maidservants,
14:23 and she asses, and camels.
14:25 And the Lord plagued Pharaoh and his house
14:28 with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.
14:32 Please join me again next time. Goodbye.
