      passage: Exodus 1:1-1:20

      Chapter 1

      Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into
      Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob. Reuben, Simeon,
      Levi, and Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, Dan, and Naphtali,
      Gad, and Asher. And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob
      were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already. And Joseph died,
      and all his brethren, and all that generation. And the children of
      Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and
      waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them. Now there
      arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said
      unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more
      and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they
      multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war,
      they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them
      up out of the land. Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to
      afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure
      cities, Pithom and Raamses. But the more they afflicted them, the
      more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the
      children of Israel. And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to
      serve with rigour: And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage,
      in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field:
      all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.
      And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name
      of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah: And he said,
      When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them
      upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a
      daughter, then she shall live. But the midwives feared God, and did not
      as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.
      And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them,
      Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?
      And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not
      as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the
      midwives come in unto them. Therefore God dealt well with the midwives:
      and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.

      passage: Job 1:1-1:12

      There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that
      man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed
      evil. And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.
      His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels,
      and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very
      great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of
      the east. And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his
      day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with
      them. And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about,
      that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning,
      and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for
      Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their
      hearts. Thus did Job continually. Now there was a day when the sons
      of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also
      among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then
      Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth,
      and from walking up and down in it. And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast
      thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth,
      a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
      Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?
      Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about
      all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands,
      and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth thine hand
      now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.
      And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power;
      only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from
      the presence of the LORD.

      passage: Matt 24:3-24:35

      Chapter 24

      And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him
      privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be
      the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered
      and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall
      come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye
      shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for
      all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation
      shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there
      shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
      All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you
      up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all
      nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall
      betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets
      shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound,
      the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the
      end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall
      be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then
      shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of
      desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,
      (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea
      flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come
      down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in
      the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are
      with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that
      your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then
      shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the
      world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should
      be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake
      those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo,
      here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false
      Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders;
      insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
      Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you,
      Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret
      chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east,
      and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son
      of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be
      gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days
      shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and
      the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall
      be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
      and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the
      Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
      And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they
      shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of
      heaven to the other. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his
      branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer
      is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that
      it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation
      shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth
      shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
