Then God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear." And it was so.
So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to come over the man, and he slept. God took one of his ribs and closed the flesh at that place.
And the man said: This one, at last, is bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh; this one will be called woman, for she was taken from man.
This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh.
The Lord God said, "Since man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil, he must not reach out, and also take from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever."

And he named him Noah, saying, "This one will bring us relief from the agonizing labor of our hands, caused by the ground the Lord has cursed."
Eber had two sons. One was named Peleg, for during his days the earth was divided; his brother was named Joktan.
At one time the whole earth had the same language and vocabulary.
The Lord said, "If, as one people all having the same language, they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.
Come, let Us go down there and confuse their language so that they will not understand one another's speech."
I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if one could count the dust of the earth, then your offspring could be counted.
Get up and walk from one end of the land to the other, for I will give it to you."
One of the survivors came and told Abram the Hebrew, who was at the oaks belonging to Mamre the Amorite, the brother of Eshcol and the brother of Aner. They were bound by a treaty with Abram.
Now the word of the Lord came to him: "This one will not be your heir; instead, one who comes from your own body will be your heir."
So she named the Lord who spoke to her: The God Who Sees, for she said, "Have I really seen here the One who sees me?"
That is why she named the spring, "A Well of the Living One Who Sees Me." It is located between Kadesh and Bered.
This is My covenant, which you are to keep, between Me and you and your offspring after you: Every one of your males must be circumcised.
Throughout your generations, every male among you at eight days old is to be circumcised. This includes a slave born in your house and one purchased with money from any foreigner. The one who is not your offspring,
a slave born in your house, as well as one purchased with money, must be circumcised. My covenant will be in your flesh as an everlasting covenant.
Then he said, "Let the Lord not be angry, and I will speak one more time. Suppose 10 are found there?" He answered, "I will not destroy [it] on account of 10."
"Get out of the way!" they said, adding, "This one came here as a foreigner, but he's acting like a judge! Now we'll do more harm to you than to them." They put pressure on Lot and came up to break down the door.
As soon as the angels got them outside, one of them said, "Run for your lives! Don't look back and don't stop anywhere on the plain! Run to the mountains, or you will be swept away!"
Abraham named his son who was born to him-the one Sarah bore to him-Isaac.
But Sarah saw the son mocking-the one Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham.
When the water in the skin was gone, she left the boy under one of the bushes.
"Take your son," He said, "your only [son] Isaac, whom you love, go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about."
"Listen to us, lord. You are God's chosen one among us. Bury your dead in our finest burial place. None of us will withhold from you his burial place for burying your dead."
Let the girl to whom I say, 'Please lower your water jug so that I may drink,' and who responds, 'Drink, and I'll water your camels also'-let her be the one You have appointed for Your servant Isaac. By this I will know that You have shown kindness to my master."
And the Lord said to her: Two nations are in your womb; two people will [come] from you and be separated. One people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.
The first one came out reddish, covered with hair like a fur coat, and they named him Esau.
There was another famine in the land in addition to the one that had occurred in Abraham's time. And Isaac went to Abimelech, king of the Philistines, at Gerar.
Then Abimelech said, "What is this you've done to us? One of the people could easily have slept with your wife, and you would have brought guilt on us."
Then they dug another well and quarreled over that one also, so he named it Hostility.
Esau said to his father, "Do you only have one blessing, my father? Bless me-me too, my father!" And Esau wept loudly.
until your brother's rage turns away from you and he forgets what you have done to him. Then I will send for you and bring you back from there. Why should I lose you both in one day?"
So Rebekah said to Isaac, "I'm sick of my life because of these Hittite women. If Jacob marries a Hittite woman like one of them, what good is my life?"
Go at once to Paddan-aram, to the house of Bethuel, your mother's father. Marry one of the daughters of Laban, your mother's brother.
He reached a certain place and spent the night there because the sun had set. He took one of the stones from the place, put it there at his head, and lay down in that place.
Complete this week [of wedding celebration], and we will also give you this [younger] one in return for working yet another seven years for me."
Laban asked, "What should I give you?" And Jacob said, "You don't need to give me anything. If you do this one thing for me, I will continue to shepherd and keep your flock.
That day Laban removed the streaked and spotted male goats and all the speckled and spotted female goats-every one that had any white on it-and every dark-colored sheep among the lambs, and he placed his sons in charge of them.
If you mistreat my daughters or take other wives, though no one is with us, understand that God will be a witness between you and me."
He thought, "If Esau comes to one camp and attacks it, the remaining one can escape."
And he told the first one: "When my brother Esau meets you and asks, 'Who do you belong to? Where are you going? And whose [animals] are these ahead of you?'
He also told the second one, the third, and everyone who was walking behind the animals, "Say the same thing to Esau when you find him.
Jacob replied, "My lord knows that the children are weak, and I have nursing sheep and cattle. If they are driven hard for one day, the whole herd will die.
Then we will give you our daughters, take your daughters for ourselves, live with you, and become one people.
But the men will agree to live with us and be one people only on this condition: if all our men are circumcised as they are.
Come on, let's kill him and throw him into one of the pits. We can say that a vicious animal ate him. Then we'll see what becomes of his dreams!"
As she was giving birth, one of them put out his hand, and the midwife took it and tied a scarlet [thread] around it, announcing, "This one came out first."
No one in this house is greater than I am. He has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. So how could I do such a great evil and sin against God?"
Now one day he went into the house to do his work, and none of the household servants was there.
"We had dreams," they said to him, "but there is no one to interpret them." Then Joseph said to them, "Don't interpretations belong to God? Tell me [your dreams]."
He fell asleep and dreamed a second time: Seven heads of grain, full and good, came up on one stalk.
When morning came, he was troubled, so he summoned all the magicians of Egypt and all its wise men. Pharaoh told them his dreams, but no one could interpret them for him.
Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I have had a dream, and no one can interpret it. But I have heard it said about you that you can hear a dream and interpret it."
In my dream I had also seen seven heads of grain, full and good, coming up on one stalk.
The thin heads of grain swallowed the seven full ones. I told this to the magicians, but no one can tell me what it means."
Let Pharaoh do this: Let him appoint overseers over the land and take one-fifth [of the harvest] of the land of Egypt during the seven years of abundance.
So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one as intelligent and wise as you.
Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I am Pharaoh, but without your permission no one will be able to raise his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt."
"We are all sons of one man. We are honest; your servants are not spies."
But they replied, "We, your servants, were 12 brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan. The youngest is now with our father, and one is no longer living."
Send one of your number to get your brother. The rest of you will be imprisoned so that your words can be tested to see if they are true. If they are not, then as surely as Pharaoh lives, you are spies!"
If you are honest men, let one of you be confined to the guardhouse, while the rest of you go and take grain [to relieve] the hunger of your households.
At the place where they lodged for the night, one of them opened his sack to get feed for his donkey, and he saw his money there at the top of the bag.
He said to his brothers, "My money has been returned! It's here in my bag." Their hearts sank. Trembling, they turned to one another and said, "What is this that God has done to us?"
We were 12 brothers, sons of the same father. One is no longer living, and the youngest is now with our father in the land of Canaan.
The man who is the lord of the country said to us, 'This is how I will know if you are honest men: Leave one brother with me, take [food to relieve] the hunger of your households, and go.
Put my cup, the silver one, at the top of the youngest one's bag, along with his grain money." So he did as Joseph told him.
The steward replied, "What you have said is proper, but only the one who is found to have it will be my slave, and the rest of you will be blameless."
So each one quickly lowered his sack to the ground and opened it.
Then they tore their clothes, and each one loaded his donkey and returned to the city.
"What can we say to my lord?" Judah replied. "How can we plead? How can we justify ourselves? God has exposed your servants' iniquity. We are now my lord's slaves-both we and the one in whose possession the cup was found."
and we answered my lord, 'We have an elderly father and a young brother, the child of his old age. The boy's brother is dead. He is the only one of his mother's sons left, and his father loves him.'
One left-I said that he must have been torn to pieces-and I have never seen him again.
If you also take this one from me and anything happens to him, you will bring my gray hairs down to Sheol in sorrow.'
Joseph could no longer keep his composure in front of all his attendants, so he called out, "Send everyone away from me!" No one was with him when he revealed his identity to his brothers.
Then Joseph said to his brothers, "Please, come near me," and they came near. "I am Joseph, your brother," he said, "the one you sold into Egypt.
and Joseph moved the people to the cities from one end of Egypt to the other.
Joseph said to his father, "Not that way, my father! This one is the firstborn. Put your right hand on his head."
Over and above what I am giving your brothers, I am giving you the one mountain slope that I took from the hand of the Amorites with my sword and bow."
Yet his bow remained steady, and his strong arms were made agile by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob, by the name of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel,
These are the tribes of Israel, 12 in all, and this was what their father said to them. He blessed them, and he blessed each one with a suitable blessing.
When Joseph's brothers saw that their father was dead, they said to one another, "If Joseph is holding a grudge against us, he will certainly repay us for all the wrong we caused him."
Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah,
When she opened it, she saw the child-a little boy, crying. She felt sorry for him and said, "This is one of the Hebrew boys."
Years later, after Moses had grown up, he went out to his own people and observed their forced labor. He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his people.
Looking all around and seeing no one, he struck the Egyptian dead and hid him in the sand.
The next day he went out and saw two Hebrews fighting. He asked the one in the wrong, "Why are you attacking your neighbor?"
Aaron's son Eleazar married one of the daughters of Putiel and she bore him Phinehas. These are the heads of the Levite families by their clans.
Each one threw down his staff, and it became a serpent. But Aaron's staff swallowed their staffs.
"Tomorrow," he answered. Moses replied, "As you have said, so you may know there is no one like the Lord our God,
The Lord did as Moses had said: He removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, his officials, and his people; not one was left.
Pharaoh sent [messengers] who saw that not a single one of the Israelite livestock was dead. But Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he did not let the people go.
Otherwise, I am going to send all My plagues against you, your officials, and your people. Then you will know there is no one like Me in all the earth.
Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron. "I have sinned this time," he said to them. "The Lord is the Righteous One, and I and my people are the guilty ones.
