Genesis 12: 1- 9
1:1 In the beginning, God created heaven and earth.
1:2 But the earth was empty and unoccupied, and darknesses were over the face of the abyss; and so the Spirit of God was brought over the waters.
1:3 And God said, “Let there be light.” And light became.
1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and so he divided the light from the darknesses.
1:5 And he called the light, ‘Day,’ and the darknesses, ‘Night.’ And it became evening and morning, one day.
1:6 God also said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide waters from waters.”
1:7 And God made a firmament, and he divided the waters that were under the firmament, from those that were above the firmament. And so it became.
1:8 And God called the firmament ‘Heaven.’ And it became evening and morning, the second day.
1:9 Truly God said: “Let the waters that are under heaven be gathered together into one place; and let the dry land appear.” And so it became.
The Holy Gospel According to Matthew 7: 1-5
|7:1||“Do not judge, so that you may not be judged.|
|7:2||For with whatever judgment you judge, so shall you be judged; and with whatever measure you measure out, so shall it be measured back to you.|
|7:3||And how can you see the splinter in your brother’s eye, and not see the board in your own eye?|
|7:4||Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the splinter from your eye,’ while, behold, a board is in your own eye?|
|7:5||Hypocrite, first remove the board from your own eye, and then you will see clearly enough to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye.|
