1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
2. The same was in the beginning with God.
3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5. And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9. That was the true Light, which lightens every man that cometh into the world.
10. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful,
Counselor, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
14. Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son,
and shall call his name Immanuel. (Which means God with us.)
14. And justice is turned away backward, and righteousness
stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and uprightness cannot enter.
15. Yea, truth is lacking; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey. And Jehovah saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice.
16. And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor:
therefore his own arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it upheld him.
1. Behold, my servant, whom I uphold; my chosen, in whom my soul delights I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.
2. He will not cry, nor lift up his voice, nor cause it to be heard in the street.
3. A bruised reed will he not break, and a dimly burning wick will he not quench: he will bring forth justice in truth.
4. He will not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set justice in the earth; and the isles shall wait for his law.
5. Thus says God Jehovah, he that created the heavens, and stretched them forth; he that spread abroad the earth and that which cometh out of it; he that
gives breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
6. I, Jehovah, have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thy hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
7. to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison-house.
12. Hearken unto me, O Jacob, and Israel my called:
I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.
13. Yea, my hand hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spread out the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together......
15. I, even I, have spoken; yea, I have called him; I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous.
16. Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; from the beginning I have not spoken in secret;
from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord Jehovah hath sent me, and his Spirit.
17. Thus says Jehovah, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am Jehovah thy God, who
teaches thee to profit, who leads thee by the way that you should go.
8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending,
says the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the
9. I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
10. I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
11. Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What you
see write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
12. And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
13. And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
14. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
15. And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
16. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp
two edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shines in his strength.
17. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
18. I am he that lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
1. Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
2. For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4. Surely he hath borne our sickness, and carried our pain: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her
Shearer's is dumb, so he opens not his mouth.
8. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10. Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he has made him sick: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the
