      passage: Heb 11:9-11:10

      Chapter 11

      By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country,
      dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of
      the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations,
      whose builder and maker is God.

      passage: Heb 11:17-11:23

      By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had
      received the promises offered up his only begotten son, Of whom it was
      said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accounting that God was
      able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received
      him in a figure. By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things
      to come. By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons
      of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff. By faith
      Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of
      Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones. By faith Moses, when
      he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he
      was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.

      passage: Heb 11:32-11:40

      And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of
      Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also,
      and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms,
      wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.
      Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of
      weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the
      armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again:
      and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might
      obtain a better resurrection: And others had trial of cruel mockings and
      scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned,
      they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they
      wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted,
      tormented; Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts,
      and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all,
      having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
      God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us
      should not be made perfect.

      passage: Matt 1:1-1:25

      Chapter 1

      The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son
      of Abraham. Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat
      Judas and his brethren; And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and
      Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram; And Aram begat Aminadab; and
      Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; And Salmon begat Booz
      of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; And Jesse
      begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had
      been the wife of Urias; And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia;
      and Abia begat Asa; And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and
      Joram begat Ozias; And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and
      Achaz begat Ezekias; And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon;
      and Amon begat Josias; And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about
      the time they were carried away to Babylon: And after they were brought
      to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
      And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat
      Azor; And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;
      And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat
      Jacob; And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born
      Jesus, who is called Christ. So all the generations from Abraham to
      David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away
      into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into
      Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations. Now the birth of Jesus
      Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph,
      before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
      Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her
      a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he
      thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him
      in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee
      Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
      And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS:
      for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done,
      that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet,
      saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a
      son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is,
      God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the
      Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till
      she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
